No mass reopened versus stay at home virtual school versus in person raised politics police abortion religious liberty not to mention the remainder of what certain to be brutal presidential campaign. The issues we face range from essential to non-essential on essential matters, we should mourn deception and vowed to fight. For the truth on non essential matters we should mourn and hope to overcome division God's people can neither stay on the sidelines nor run away from the struggle instead knowing there is no hope other than Christ. We must ask onto mercifully powerfully mobilize us is people to advance that which is true and good if Christians are to speak with clarity courage and confidence and to be the. Of Truth and love and a world of Noise Echo Chambers, then we'll need to be prepared but even perfectly crafted arguments cannot replace Shut Colson would say the church being the Church speaking cannot replace being and to be the people that God calls us to be right now, we must rely on prayer. That's why each and every Wednesday morning between all the twelfth of November, the fourth, and that's the morning after the twenty twenty election the Colson center will be hosting a national prayer time the a Webinar we want you to join US each and every week to pray first and foremost for God's mercy. But that he would revive his church that he would bring about a renewal of righteousness that he would empower us to courageously offer protection for the most vulnerable to champion reconciliation across our deepest divides and that he would. Allow us to be instruments in the sustaining of religious freedom and the recovery of the family in our nation.

So what we need to do as Paul Instructs this put on the former of God Faith Truth Righteousness Peace Salvation the word of God. And he says praying at all times in the spirit with all prayer and supplication keeping alert with all perseverance making supplication for all the Saints, and the Book of acts the earliest church activity we read off is prayer thousands of people from completely different backgrounds came together in one mind one art in prayer with one accord. That's what acts chapter one, verse fourteen and Chapter Two versus forty.

Breathe Again: From Miasmatic Disease To Modern Day Misconceptions
"Hopefully, you've already heard that we lost a documentary recently, it is just taking off all over the Internet and the name of the documentary is called mask facts science in history of mask in medicine, and as you know right now we are dealing with A. Nationwide and worldwide pandemic, and we're looking for solutions and we're looking for things that have real efficacy to protect our citizens and to also maintain a level of health into to to create a system where we don't go through this again, that's what it really is at the end of the day because in truth the next viruses coming, you know Kobe twenty over. Twenty, one just like the flu virus you know these viruses mutate as we're GonNa talk about today, and we'll be dealing with more infectious diseases in the future. This is how life works, and so we went to look at what are some real clinically proven real world solutions to keep our citizens healthy and so we lost this documentary again, just skyrocket is over. Half, a million views already this week and has been a few days but something happened. Something happened I'm going to share with you a little bit later in the show but as of now, you check out the full documentary at the Model Hill show dot com for slash mask facts as I mentioned today, we're GonNa go on an adventure. We're going to go through some of the data that was in the documentary, but also ribbon dig a little deeper would expand on some things we're GonNa have a good time. And really, we want look at the beginning of this utilization of mask in medicine where the start and I think it's important to in that humans have been wearing masks for forever I for thousands of years whether it's for ritual whether it's for celebration also wore that's a time that different types of masks have been used but the specific use of masks in medicine actually started around sixteen hundreds when physician Charles de created the earliest versions of a has met suit. At this time he was looking at how can we protect the physician Dat was dealing with we're talking about this time of like the black plague, right the deal with plagues it was called a plague doctor. So a featured a waxed overcoat a lengthy Cain to examine people. Can you imagine somebody examining you am cocaine you with a cane from like six feet away? How disrespectful? So they had a cane also, there was this menacing eat mask that was part of this particular has met with this form of protection. and. The interesting thing is that this mask had very different purpose than you might suspect. Because at the time physicians all over believed in something called the Maya's matic theory of disease. And basically, the miasma theory of disease means the disease is passed from person to person or from the environment to person through the inhalation of quote. Bad Air. is coming from the environment, not necessarily prisoner person, but coming from the environment in inhaling bad air was the primary cause of disease. All right. Now, the mask was not necessarily used to prevent the physician from inhaling bad air what the beak mask was actually four was to crowd out the batter and instead hill good air and what they were doing was stuffing the mask of beat to keep it away from the person and they could even lights it light it on fire lake again Billy Madison. There's a scene where they're like the taking back the poop in lights on fire people sports. So they can actually stuff the beak with herbs and spices right shot at the KFC, and then they can inhale this good air to help crowd out the batter that was the technology that was there that was their approach and they felt that was affected. So this actually continued for quite a while with this mayes matic theory disease, you might think that this is a long time ago because it sounds strange. But the Maya's matic theory of disease did not become obsolete until the twentieth century that's actually finally became obsolete in the germ theory of disease really started to take hold. And this was around the nineteen hundreds. Physicians were now beginning to wear preliminary versions of surgical mask with a primary function of protecting the patient from contamination in surgical site infection. So kind of looking at today, it was used to protect the patient from the physician. In them not you know spraying out on them during the procedure in increasing their risk of infection. Now, visually, this became common practice for healthcare workers to wear mask and the surgical setting. Now is more hygienic practices began to be incorporated into operating rooms in hospitals. Several scientists sought out to discover whether or not the ritual of wearing a mask in surgery at a high level of effectiveness in preventing infection, which is their intent surprisingly several studies including a Meta analysis, and this means multiple studies a conglomeration of multiple studies examining this issue. This was published in Cochrane systematic review, very prestigious found that when physicians wore a mask or didn't wear a mask quote, there was no statistically significant difference in infection rates between the masked in unmask group in any of the trials. Could. Now, what this means is that even over one hundred years after the inception of the mask in surgery, the researchers noted that at best quote it is unclear whether wearing surgical face masks result in any harm or benefit to the patient undergoing clean surgery. In quote I want to look a little bit further because this just didn't make sense how this not be proven to be helpful at least in. So another study, this was published in the Journal of Hospital infections appropriate title. And they also concluded that the use of surgical masks surgery are obsolete and unnecessary. Researchers at the Center for Infectious Disease Research and policy summarises by stating quote clinical trials in the surgery theater have found no difference in wound infection rates with and without surgical mask. Despite these findings, it has been difficult for surgeons to give up a long standing practice.

"Should the feds be able to take action? To protect federal property. Should the president be able to send federal agents to protect federal property in cities like Portland, Oregon, For instance, or other places Absolutely 100%. The president should be able to use federal forces. Ah law enforcement to protect the assets of the United States of America. There is, though, that about it. Late Last week we had the inspector general for the DOJ announced that its office had opened up an investigation into the use of force by federal law enforcement agents against the protesters, some of them peaceful. Many not in Portland in Washington, D. C and the probe was launched in response to a referral from the US attorney general in Oregon, Billy Williams. Each side came to the hearing.

Coronavirus relief bill negotiations continue as benefits set to expire
"For more on the status of the next Corona virus relief package were joined by Bloomberg News Congressional reporter Eric Watson, Eric Watson, We heard. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged that his members air all over the lot on the next relief bill. How does that this unity compared to Democrats? And what does that mean? As these negotiations come down to the wire and relief program start to expire? Well, I think Nancy Pelosi to have speaker and Chuck Schumer Senate Majority leader Really looking at this is giving them leverage. You know, if the car can get 51 members on board, you know, he really is is not showing a lot of muscle a star being behind this proposal of closely highlight that in a late on Monday. I'm just saying that they're in complete disarray, and we are seeing evidence of that. There was a Republican lunch on Tuesday and a lot of numbers came out there. Not comfortable with the $1 trillion price tag there not comfortable with lot of Parisians in here, and I think they're really looking to re establish their sort of deficit hawks on the CDs that we saw Republican Party The Paul Ryan era before Trump came along the base itself. One remind viewers and listeners what's in that $1 trillion Republican plan, the Heels act as it's called, Yeah, it's really about eight part plan and it's got a lot of different moving parts to the main part of the are a direct famous stimulus of $1200 per person making up to 75. Dollars that is almost exactly modeled on the March proposal that went out of most Americans was also an extension of the settlement. Unemployment insurance benefits, But not these six. Another level that we're seeing currently would lower to about $200 for two months and then have states come completed complex calculation to figure out And make sure people only getting a maximum 70% of their previous wages and status. It is difficult to implement that bill would give him another two much waver if they're having trouble also build more money for, you know, testing for education. 2/3 of the $70 billion for education tied School's reopening and Democrat Tristan. This is using a stick approach, and Trump is endangering the welfare of Children. It's really seeing that and plus their liability protection. This is Mitch McConnell's top Ah, ah, asking. This is to protect businesses from lawsuits if they reopen the coronavirus, and that's what he's going to be interesting on in any final. Billy's reiterated that again this week. And why is it his top? Asked. He made sure to emphasize that today it was the one part of the program that he briefly brought up after that Senate lunch that you that you attended in reporting on very closely aligned with the Chamber of Commerce. Half of Republicans, This is business concerns. A really raising this worry about trial lawyers coming in and making ah little money off a class action lawsuits and so forth things. They also an impediment to re opening businesses are concerned. With Jim Louie Vito are or regular office of having people see that they were less likely to tipping hired workers pass that his point of view that is diagnosis of the current situation, Democrats say Instead, let's have OSHA. Let's have the Occupational safety and Hazard. I'm sorry Health Administration come up with a strong standard of clear standard and you know companies get through. They could cite that they're complying with OSHA standards. You know, it is providing protective equipment and barriers and other social distancing measures. And that would solve the problem. I think you have some kind of compromise here. But there's big elements. This proposal from Republicans of shifting lawsuits from the states where torture normally handled to the federal government. And Democrats are loath to do that you mentioned compromised. Democrats air pushing their $3.5 trillion Heroes Act was passed in the house back in May 208 votes to 199 votes. Republicans, of course, pushing this $1 trillion plan, but it was Senate Republican Conference chairman John Thune, who today said I think there's a lot here to agree on. Where could be the lines of agreement? Well, it's it's officially if you have got two numbers here, and it's going to end up somewhere in between. That's what you know what Republicans are nervous about. You know, they're saying, we're start. Our opening day is not zero. It's one trillion is going to end up two trillion or more fear on that from Republican side. I think Democrats are hopeful. There are things in their provisions in there, bill, whether it's an Internet or water that probably could be tightened, taking care of elsewhere that's often been talked about today potential. Deal later on with Trump, especially, he's realized about infrastructure. So, um, it would be a priority for the bride administration, and he has the only thing that they can do and deal with later. They're more nice to have and have tohave. I think for Democrats really won the key one that's missing in that Republican president nearly $1 trillion for state and local governments. You know when the shutdown happen, revenue really dried up for a lot of these local and state governments, and there's they're facing the possibility of millions of people being laid off in the public sector. So Democrats are pushing out their top ask and, you know, I don't know if Republicans are hard, fast against that. Maybe there's a compromise there

By the time you listen to this this episode, but basically happened. We came in here and we did the web and so. It was a little ready firing. Things was like we planned this to be in a month now a whole month launched and we said No. Let's get it done quick. We gave ourselves like three days. So that meant is like number one which was Monday creator registration page and promoted it right ID number two, then I created the slides because I could which were perfect, but they were Kinda. Good. Day three finish slides, and then we went live, and it was just chaos because we had over ten thousand people registered. We have I think. Thirty five, hundred live cutting, it was chaos so a lot of fun, though and we did the Webinar and overall, the Webinar was awesome. Crushed it sells converted really well like everything was was awesome with it, but the right three or four spots that I could tell them work right right that we miss something. Looking back at the questions that people smit afterwards like they're missing this gap, and the urgency of the scarcity wasn't right in the bud. Things were busy. In fact, it's kind of fun todd. You know I co Co founder and partner Todd. He watched it, and then he messaged me he's like Russell you've messed up. You've heard about this and this and this and I was like house taught. Teach me webinars now, but it was actually really good. It was some of the most of the key things that we didn't click funnels to increase conversions and our webinars and I forgot about it. I was rushing to build these slides out, and so basically was was. was there there was no. There's no urgency in scarcity couple things. If you've ever gone through any my my deep webinar training. Talk about how in the offer stack you want to introduce constraints so later in the stack you can. You can amok was restraints right so what I saw what the thought was instead of saying hey. webinars unlimited everything was coming and saying. Hey, you get a you know. There's going to be limited at twenty twenty webinars. You could build hundred thousand things like that, and so those constraints people nobody constraints with okay, because still pretty good, and then at the end of it like the bonus. These people now say hey, those who get started today while we're live. We're going to release these constraints. Instead of having twenty dollars. You get one hundred or unlimited so this you're going. Get this you can. kind of break things out and so it was cool out of that is. He told them I was like. Oh, my Gosh, she's right and right now were Brandon Fisher on our team. Is that rendering the Webinar and getting it ready? All sorts of stuff like that and say wait before you render the final version I needed record. Some clips ran back to the office. You know it's nighttime now we're. It was the morning or during the day when you. Turn Lights look as close to possible deal before and came back and I redid three sections of the slides to introduce constraints, and then and then only. Restraints by making unlimited offer in.

Daphne Merkin: 22 Minutes of Unconditional Love
"This week. I'm talking to someone who I've wanted to talk to for a very long time. But it took until now that she's written her second novel her first novel. enchantment was written over twenty years ago. The new novel twenty two minutes of unconditional love by my guest staff new American is recently published by Farah Strauss. It's a book that has been. In the works. For All that time this version of A crucial event in twenty two minutes of unconditional love in that novel enchantment Daphne tell me. What was it that held you up? What took twenty years to create the snaffle? I'd go even further Michael and say it took thirty years. I described what I wanted to do. Put It that way to an editor who was at a press that no longer exists and I said I'd always been interested in obsession. And the truth of the matter is. My first novel in Chapman. I had originally described to Billy Vaughan of which. The publisher who I laid a worked for five years. I said that was about A. But this was. To be a novel about. What happens if you get involved if your woman who gets involved? With a man who is? In some simple way quote very bad for you. Could be on any level psychologically emotionally, physically abusive the whole spectrum. and. I had read such books. 'cause it always interested me. And the woman usually ended up either dead. Like Ana, Karenina? or Hold off to an institution. And I was always. Interested in a degree of I guess what is called Sadomasochism not in its theatrical form like story of Oh Never much as they say, did it for me, it's too theatrical into Saad is to theatrical for me, but the sort of. Ways in which power gets contorted in relationships, interested me. They said I said I wanNA. Write about obsession. They said fine. They gave me in advance. At that time. It was not. Small. In fact now again it is not sold for a novel, which was one hundred thousand. And! I went off and wrote. To page two hundred twelve. Still remember I remember the scene because the scene is in this. Final novel, which has the lawyer? Character, who the woman is involved with? Named rose asks or demands that. The protagonist judith shown. Cruel across the floor for him. They did as some kind of tribute. To her quote love. More accurately, his power over her, and I got to this page. And I stopped did. And I thought. Just to explain Michael I come from A. Observant Orthodox background. Completely observant not acidic. What's called? Modern Orthodox. And I was I'm one of six siblings. Nine parents were German immigrants. And Even though I had already written. I mean enchantment. What had been treated basically as a memoir. The term auto fiction which I personally could do without hadn't been invented yet. So. If you wrote very autobiographically impelled fiction. Your average lay reader would simply it as oh, she's talking about herself and there were many. Many parts of the novel that were similar to my family. But if I wanted to write a memoir straight, I would have written a memoir, but. All I'm saying is I had already revealed. Things you don't say about your family. If you a modest product of Orthodox background.

"The. The Earth against this expanse of vast snus. Wouldn't that. Give you a sense of how we're all in this together. It is there really that much importance in all of the borders? Is it really that much importance in? Race is really that much importance in social economic status. Why don't why does all that stuff matter so much? That little ball that's up in the sky. That would be in the sky. We were out in space checking out earth. That little spaceship. That little Blue Ball has produced every life that we've ever known. And the air that we breathe. No new shipments. Of Air have been brought to Earth. No new shipments of waters and some giant ups. Space Truck. That replenishes our Earth we rely on a system of decay and renewal. And the same system that supports us on that Blue Ball. has supported every living thing that we know of that has ever lived. Whether, it'd be Napoleon or Julius Caesar. Or Trans Ours Rex. That's how vital that ball is. And I'm kind of folding this in in to. What we talked about earlier in the podcast. With all, that is happening right now. The understanding of our world. The importance of life, the fragility of life. You know if you live to be eighty or ninety years old. That's a long time you're lucky. A lot of people don't make it that for. All right. That's only eighty or ninety trips around the sun. That's it. Out of all the billions of times. That the earth has gone around the Sun. All we get if we're lucky. Is Eighty or ninety trips and that's it. You're done. You're rides over. Next. And It should be so important to us that we work so hard to make sure. That all of us all of our fellow people, and all living things on earth I'm a humanist in that regard, I feel that all life has value I love animals. And they're on the same ship that we are. And we should value the resources that we have on this earth. We should value all life. And I would say as human beings. We should be spending our time making sure that since we only get eighty or ninety trips if we're lucky. That each one of those people each one of those. Souls that are going around that ride around the sun that each one of those trips around the sun is as pleasant. And as love filled as possible. So to me, I get so much more out of our venture into space than a rocket ride. Or some science-fiction. You know 's thing. There's so much about our world. Our world does not end at the top of the atmosphere. What's up in those stars and everywhere else is the source of what gave us our world. And it's all a part of where we live. Every bit of it is. So I would say. What. That's one of the things in the contrast. With this weekend. I'm watching the protests and all the pain and sorrow. That's going on on in this world on this earth. and. The space x program was going on and I just wish that more people could. Share in the humanity of the world that we live in the place that we all share the kinship that we should all have. So I if you don't. I. Don't know if you don't hear anything else that I'm really saying about the space program kind of remember that police. That's kind of where I come from as a person. and. I'm going I'm going to leave you with a quote from one of my favourite scientists Carl. Say and I'm GonNa leave you with that quote before I get into that. I I. Do want to remind you that next week.

And they are a very large Indian online music streaming service, so we want to say hello to anyone who may be listening to us for the first time. Thank you very much for having us. We so appreciate it. Last week we touched a little bit on the Joe Rogan spotify deal and I kind of went into some broad analysis. I guess of of podcasting in general going to follow up with that today. And! We're also going to talk a little bit about spacex and some of the things that happened there over the weekend, but before we get into that. Needless to say the Georgia, Floyd tragedy out of Minneapolis has gripped the country. And just prior to going into production for for this week's podcast, I struggled. With whether or not I should go into it. There's a part of me who who feels very obligated to speak about this because it is, it has impacted so many people. And at the same time, though the situation is still unfolding and I feel, there are some very important voices that were directly involved and impacted by what happened in Minneapolis and I feel that their voices should be heard. I. And this situation is also very fluid. It is unfolding day by day. So I decided. Yes, should talk about it, but to go into it in detail. The time just isn't right. But it does absolutely deserve our attention, and I did prepare a commentary and play that for you right now. Our. Country has been shot by what happened in Minneapolis over the course of a now notorious period of eight minutes and forty six seconds. In the days that have followed since protests have erupted all over the country. There has been such a dichotomy in the various videos that have surfaced during this time. There have been very poignant images of police officers and protesters hugging each other. There has also been very good points and information brought forth by the discussions and the various speakers at these events. Simultaneously the already tragic events surrounding the death of George Floyd have been exploited by opportunistic individuals who want to riot loot and further increase the tensions in our fragile society. Political Opportunism has also risen its head. It seems that pandemics and tragedies of any kind are not above being wrapped up as political fodder. The past few days have produced many conspiracy theories. And fuelled fear and distrust of the media, governmental officials, and even our fellow citizens. It is for these reasons that have avoided going into this topic into any great detail at this time for one I. Do not want to disseminate information that may be wrong and secondly I do not want to cover these tragic events as a method of generating content for the sake of this program, the events surrounding nece situation are currently still fluid and unfolding day by day. After some time passes and the voices that need to be heard on this topic at this trying time have their day. I may choose to provide some commentary in the meantime I. Only two cents is to please not be too quick to react to information and images that you may run across over the course of my lifetime. I have attended very diverse schools. And I have worked with a cross section of society over several decades over a number of what must be in the thousands of my associations. I have not knowingly been aware of any member of a hate group, or at the same time someone who participated in a drive by shooting, and I would be willing to bet that that is the case for most of you. The number of people who actually participate in these kinds of activities in our country that numbers over three hundred million is actually pretty few, and far between yet the images of crime, the images of hate seem to permeate the media and our pop culture, the vast majority of us want these same things out of life for ourselves and our children. We wish.

"Say is from from my point of view I talk about something. I'm going where the evidence leads me. the science is kind of a study of of how whereas God is kind of like the theological study kind of the study of why so one gives it meaning. The other woman gives it a structure in which the meaning can be taken from. Now I'm not a religious person either. I'm not I'm not huge on really any religion. I don't care what people believe in. It doesn't effect my life much until it does. So when you start pushing your morality on others that is when. I started to have a problem with. You can believe whatever crazy. Thank you want. I don't care but and that's I'm not necessarily. I would stop short of calling myself an atheist but I I can tell you that the word atheist has has has turned into something very ugly now because of these activists so yeah religion I mean I would hit. Yeah it's become a 'cause it has become a cause and it was never meant that when we talk about the separation of church and state and things like that we're referring to what you were alluding to about you know religious beliefs being incorporated into legislature. That's what the meaning of it was. And these atheists have into something where a second grader can't have a Christmas manger on any. Where near the did this was about or a across on on. Church cast a shadow on public parking. Lots right I was one of those head use a long time ago and accents smelled out and I mean nowadays. I kind of looked like every honor pay. Facebook will have a memory pop up and I look at it like Oh God what the hell was i? Now what's wrong with the so over the years? I've mellowed out. Live and let live. But you know people and that's the thing like a lot of you change over the years you know you're not gonNA remain the same person lease most people. Don't some people do? It's cringing? Yeah I like I said I. I believe the atheist movement has become something very ugly protesting the cross at nine eleven. The two beams that intersected. This is what separation of church and state was all about all right so with that being said let's just say that As far as today's program is concerned in regard to UFO's. And the possibility of of I. Would I would be very excited to find conclusive evidence that would be one of the defining moments in human history and this evidence of that was just released by the Pentagon is very intriguing It's very impressive. But it's not conclusive. I walk the pilots reaction. Yeah actually you didn't hear it. That was before you came in but I played a little bit of that at the beginning of the program so Absolutely impressive you know. This is something that we should keep an open mind to. We definitely want more evidence around this type of thing. I mean evidence not just as to it being an actual from space but evidence as to what this might be is is something that's falling is something that has is a hazard to our airplanes. Know that the space junk that's out there is a big hazard to astronauts is. You're talking about something that's you know. No bigger than a ballpoint pen or something like that. Who Go right through you. Oh Yeah it's through the spaceship and everything else will space travel in average of forty thousand miles an hour orbiting the earth. I mean it said that could go through like galvanized steel going that fast. So I mean this is something that we want to You know we want to pursue all the evidence no matter where it takes. Doesn't I can't say that enough. You go where evidence leads you not necessarily to what you would think would be more entertaining or give more purpose to your life where logic goes goes wear. The evidence is pointing you. So I I all. I can say about these. These most recent Ufo's subjects and oddly enough with all the trump stuff and with the Kobe. Nineteen and all these other times. What would ordinarily be a pretty big story. Right is not being covered very treating ask if you thought it was weird that this wasn't covered as much as you be because I am a huge lake conspiracy theory like Ufo Nail Watcher Spe. I love reading about space and everything like that and this completely missed when you email it was the first. I'd ever about it which I thought was weird because I'm on the Internet about twenty five hours a day. Yeah I wonder why it didn't get a bigger press coverage it. Yeah I was wondering how I missed it too. Ause like wow yeah. That's that's interesting But I guess you are right. What's going on? It's probably got buried a little bit because it's not Athens. Not Dying bleeding. You know so. People DON'T CARE. I guess when an alien kids opera space shoot someone in the head the talent square. That's when people care but you know I guess until then it's just not happening. I guess well anyway. That's pretty much going to do it for our conversation today. Always a great to have a Jack sitting in with me on some of these discussions and we have in back from time to time. If you have any ideas or anything that you would like to tweet me regarding what you've heard today on the subject of Ufo's or anything else you can do.

"Warm and then being in the right area I mean so these billions of planets that are in that zone. I mean how many of them have a moon that could do that. That doesn't completely disrupt this. And then you get to you know changes in tectonics or how long it took for the earth. Cool down enough for these cells the exist. I mean it could be that the never cooled down. Maybe another object hit knocked the sun and that's true for the many billions of planets out there and we're talking billions of billy sure that are supposedly earth-like And so the begs the question. Are we beyond the great filter? Like how many civilizations have made it. You know to our level or beyond haven't either destroyed themselves or taken out by another state Predator race that was Watching there's other theories of maybe we're just Kinda sue like the aliens you know out. There are observing us but have some kind of no contact order kind of like we do with some of those tribes contacted your honor. You know that goes goes and the the possibility is maybe we met one of baby say ten races and the entire galaxy. They've made it or maybe in the entire universe but I find it hard to believe that all life were the only life out there especially since they found evidence of cell building What do they call amulets or something like that? They found evidence those on comets and on rocks that. Wait a minute. There's a lot of theories that suggested life might have started on earth because it came here On on some sort of a meteorite or something like that so yeah I mean I. I believe that's all legitimate science and I believe that is worth exploring but it's so easy for people to take that next step and start well. The government knows about it and one of the things that I always say I mean I. I know that there's theories that were just being observed and all that but when it comes to these visitations in these abductions and everything they seem to be very much around the same type of story line as an encounter with a ghost right. It's always late at night. It's always up in your attic. It's always it's never you know out on the beach with thousands of people look here. Here's my great-grandfather where everybody can see it. Mary Jane Roe Always alone when the aliens came down. Swooping them up you know like nobody is not a soul for miles and so that's where those things start. Start to wear a little thin and you can. What if this death and you can do that with any belief whether it's a belief in astrology. Whether it's a belief in your spirituality you're on down the line you can. What if this death and speaking from the standpoint of being a skeptic in that I want some evidence for I can't answer every what if your imagination can conjure up. You just can't do it so that's one of the things that I'm always very. Cautious will win when I tell people just speak. I don't want to deny your personal truth if you had some sort of a thing. Fly over you late at night or if you've had a ghost in your attic or and I had a family When I was young most of them are dead now but I grew up with a lot of old timers that when they got together and got the drink and they all started sharing the ghost stories. Now there's a reason why that light in the attic is always coming on by itself. All her and those stories are very entertaining. Korea they're nothing. They're nothing intrigues me. Like a good ghost story. Well that's why they're following go out either. Xining the same thing with You know how Qatar religion and all that developed you know yet. A lot of people in mythology in general even way before Christianity emerged. I got a bunch of people who had no phone. No Internet not really advanced. Who needed to do something to entertain themselves. So that's how the store or the stars got stories. That's how like you know the different Messiahs that have come up throughout history of gun stories. People need to be entertained or you know. That's that's what makes us humid. I mean just a of people running around in loincloths gathering berries. I mean that's that's not really a lot of intelligence. I guess I would say the same kind of goes to lead really show. Have you seen that ancient alien show? I've tried to get through it some of it. Sometimes it starts getting a little far out there for me but go ahead. I haven't seen it as funny because a lot of that stuff. They always say that you know early. Mankind How do assisted by aliens or do in always point to like these ancient paintings and stuff like that like fireballs the sky and everything and to me it caught a boils down to the same thing you had all these like these ancient societies that needed to Kinda create amid structure and everything as a form of entertainment like we do with the NBA TV today and so Of course you know something. Fantastical like a alien fight. The Sky or God coming down is going to be is going to be something that is passed and who knows how much it's been bastardized been passed down for mouth to mouth because a lot of prerecorded is. Biz oral traditions. I look at Native Americans in their skin walkers and things like that I mean. Perhaps there was a deranged. Human that were other people skin. At one point you know murder tribes and things like that. I absolutely that could be possible. But you know it's as it becomes the game of telephone it. The story mutates certainly stealing your show. Say stuff like you know all this wouldn't have been possible without aliens but it turns out that a lot of our Lino. Ancient societies are actually very intelligent. I feel like it down. Plays a lot of the intelligence of these. I mean you're looking at these. Societies had nothing to do but move rocks are out. Of course they're gonNA find new and inventive ways to do it. It's like prisoners making shanks and prison out. You Dental floss toilet paper. You know enough mind Senate inventive and I think a lot of these shows when they try pushes conspiracy discount that a lot and that's one thing that kinda bothers me about absolutely. They were very advanced. I have a relative WHO's Egyptian Obviously relative by marriage and he's been in the family a long time. He's a doctor and You know obviously a pretty smart guy and I've had some conversations with him and I speculate. I don't know this to be true but you know he often says that there isn't a whole lot of mystery around the Pyramids Most Egyptologists know how they were built and I sometimes wonder if there's some board of tourism somewhere some portions of these stories. Just make the stories that much more intriguing you from a marketing standpoint. So Roy by all the books and by although whatever else come out and check out the pyramid I personally would love to go check out. The Pyramids Nia end because of the fact that his family is still out there. He's made it clear to me that we could always go and stay with him and his family right and I would feel a lot more comfortable being with a with a native as opposed to a you know with someone who's GonNa fall into all the tourist traps so yeah. I would definitely do that. He did tell me though that the Valley of the Kings is hot. Even for people that live there. You don't WanNa be there in the middle of summer because it is like on a side note guys sitting around at office going. Oh Man. Tourist numbers are down What can we do about this Ahmad? The other guy goes. Oh Hey Let's take an autograph. Pretend that the Pyramids are all a giant supercomputer from ancient times. Bam Up fifty percent. Exactly sure theory out there Is that the pyramid wither. Place with some of the other stuff is the emulates like a modern circuit board. But if you really kind of look at the dinner mangles perspective. It's like a lot of the other ancient structures which is to track stars the track seasons and stuff like that. It's you know a landing speaking of religion. I have to run this past you okay. I ran across video. I've been knowing that we were going to do this. Podcast I wanted to get some different things to talk talk about and I ran across this video. I'm this young man and what he said was. Is that aliens are actually fallen. Angels Okay and he also said that about some of the other gods that other religions have their actually fallen got the you know fallen angels and there was a time at win. These fallen angels lusted. Of course that's that's the big one of the big that we all do is loss women lusted you know for people or against loss of Saxony To think about it a lot though. L. I know so anyway. These fallen angels lusted after human female form they made with them. And what would? The result was was giants. So when you hear about some of the quote unquote miss as he said about giants. Those were actually true. And these giants helped built some the superstructures of the ancient world. That's creative okay. Know and all Esley their citations in the Bible that he has that point to all of this and when the Anti Christ comes it's going to be disguised as an alien invasion so anyway Know some of these are pretty pretty entertaining. I'm sure there's somebody out there going nobil. That's absolutely true. That's right in the Bible. Okay I got see all right so anyway it's It's one of those things where here again when it comes to conjecture when it comes to these. What if there's no end to what you can come up with and correct me if I'm wrong? I know I'm not wrong. But he you can speak on this trying to argue the standpoint of a logical.

"The navy previously acknowledged the videos back in September of last year. They are officially releasing them now quote in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real or whether or not there is more to the videos unquote according to a Pentagon spokesperson right on the studio line with me right now. Is Jack Casey? What's going on Jack? Not much man just Enjoying a day inside is every day off of hat has been cold gross. So I know it's For those around the country in an under and around the world. We're in Ohio. This is early in. May and it seems more like October or November. I mean it's really just cold dam. It's actually snowing outside right now. The video of the UFO's. You and I have both seen it. I played a little sound clip Just a a a little bit ago. It's pretty impressive Whitney say so. Oh yeah that's definitely something all the one that came out or that was filmed in one thousand four. I think I've seen before but Okay it's one of those ones where it looked like. It was some kind of trick with the camera or something so I didn't really think right now but the other two are completely new to me. I'd never seen either one of those. I want to be clear here at the top of the program because a lot of times people say you know Bill Eurosceptic. And that is true An and it's across the board but being a skeptic to me doesn't necessarily mean that I am going to deny someone's personal truth Truth and objective. Truth are two different things and when it comes to your religion when it comes to any type of spirituality when it comes to a ghost and in the same thing bligh's to these. Ufo's for one being skeptic doesn't necessarily mean. I am going to deny what you want to believe in or what. You are enthusiastic about it. Just simply means that for media take it on as something that I feel to be true there has to be some very compelling evidence and these videos are very impressive just like the a lot of people have very impressive stories about ghosts and other things and they're very impressive they're very compelling but That doesn't necessarily mean that they're conclusive those are completely two different things and one of the things that I. I feel that we have to be cautious about here. Is just like with spirituality or anything else just because something cannot be explained does not mean that. It has a supernatural explanation. Same goes here just because just because something is very impressive in in something. Net cannot be easily explained does not mean that it has an extraterrestrial origin. Very I used to grope off the shore lake like my mom's house is literally a five minute walk so we'd my friends and I would spend more time on the beach up there We would occasionally see strange stuff in the sky like a one night. I was walking across Kent State. Astra deals campus and I looked up in the air and it looked like there is something moving like obscuring stars those kind of black and I mean it was definitely some kind of UFO had a couple of lights on it you know but it looked like it was both flying low and flying very high in the air at the same time. Like the way that you couldn't really judge where it was like the height sky was during that read. It turns out that a lot of the stuff that you know my friends and I had seen in over the years There's an experimental aircraft half is silly over. Toledo so they're relying experimental aircraft. You know most people have never seen before and of course doing it at night and So that's probably ninety five percent of what we'd seen which is contrary host. Alex very cool to me these videos especially look the first one as I said I've seen before and then the other to like the way that that one moved like against the wind and everything it was almost as if like they didn't get any resistance or anything or or anything at all and it was just kind of floating which was very odd and I really wish it was not just the infrared picture. I wish I would have seen like a a direct camera picture of it yet. They might not have had a visual on it. I don't know but Yeah very much impressive. Video in terms of what is this and by the way. It isn't the first time that service people have mentioned seeing something John Glenn Famously said the and that one NASA explained that there was something caught in the vortex behind his ship. And I've never I've never really run across the exact transcript but a buzz Aldrin on the way to the Moon Apparently had some sort of a unexplained thing that he felt was somewhere often the distance when they were approaching the moon and And here again. He when you pin him down he really doesn't in the interviews. I've run across. I haven't heard him talk about it in any way that would lead me to believe that this was a spaceship other than it was just something that could be identified right. You photos of meals should win weird thing up in the sky. You know which can be kind of a lot of things. There's a video famously. Taken tyrod auto that There was a bunch of like lights. There were Kinda up in the air. They're up there for a good couple minutes or so and it turned out. Those were actually High-velocity flares that had been sent from nearby air holes but still unidentified nobody on the ground knew what it was. They were just looking at something that they exactly. I sometimes wonder this is strictly speculation on my part. I don't have any evidence of this but there's no doubt to. This part is true. There's no doubt there's a lot of space junk around the earth. Now if you if you google some of the Renderings of how many thousands of pieces of junk there are up there. I sometimes wonder if some of the larger pieces. Let's say a piece of metal or or an old satellite or whatever starts making its way down. It's something that can be as large as an automobile. Let's say and you've got to remember. It's coming into the atmosphere faster than a bullet right. Okay so at that point Sometimes wonder of these couldn't create some of this phenomenon that A lot of people are noticing and With all that junk that's up there and this has happened. This has happened where some of it is actually made it to the ground before burned up With all the junk up there I sometimes wonder if sooner or later something is going to land and do something harmful to to a populated area. I'm actually Kinda surprised to be honest. Yeah just with all the old saddle old fuel tax and all that up there that are specifically designed to be able to survive going through the atmosphere going up. I'm shocked at a farmhouse or hasn't hit you know middle the city or something. Of course the amount of damage it would do. I would be about the equivalent of say a meteor about the same size but Yeah I guess we've gotten really lucky one would think it will another thing that always comes up in these. Conversations is well own when people find out that I'm a skeptic now they'll say well now come on bill and all the vast universe just the vast universe that we know about let alone what is beyond what we've already been able to map out. There are how many galaxies and how many planets and how many stars and how could it be that we are the only one that that's something that I would have to say. We're probably not. There probably is some form of life out there now. How intelligent is where we know. We don't even know for sure that it is carbon based obey their silicon and other things. And if that's the case there's no way we would understand or able to deal with it but what I'm getting at is is that's one possibility. And as one of the reasons why we're very anxious in terms of space exploration to find microbial life because if we did find extraterrestrial life it would have two possible meanings of if if it has a DNA structure that we understand that means that life in the universe could have a common origin which is pretty interesting. If on the other hand like I said earlier if it's something that's just totally off the charts different. That means that life could start up any number of different ways in our universe so these are pretty significant things and I would have to say that that finding extraterrestrial life would probably one of the most significant for for our society for humankind. Roy Beyond just for the scientific community move the most significant fines ever. I mean the only thing I could challenge it would be to find evidence that shows that some sort of spirituality is affecting the physical world where those two things right there are pretty significant and I would have to say you know. Obviously I'm open to that If you find if we find evidence of life out there let's explore it. I absolutely would want to get all the evidence that we could but does that mean that. I believe that we are currently being visited. And all of these things that people are talking about are happening in. Is there a conspiracy by all the governments of the world to keep this quiet at this point? No I'm not. I'm not going to believe that. This is This is why I've always had a problem with the whole. Oh the government did nine eleven think of all the thousands of thousands of people the government involved in day to day affairs. And you think you would be able to keep thousands and thousands of people's bowel shot about the death of four thousand Americans circuit. Did on this. I mean I see the same thing with aliens. Ufo's if we had been visited if they found evidence somebody would have said something Leaked evidence kind of like these videos. somebody leaked them actually. They weren't officially. And then you know just recently government just Kinda came out and said all right fine the real We're not giving you any more for information nor do we know what it is and I feel like that's the best scenario in regards to the life being out there. I mean it has to be. There's no way that we're on In that brings forth the. Have you heard of a theory called? The full concept called the great filter. I've heard of it but I couldn't explain his so by all means. Tell me what it is all the way. It works. Not going to be paraphrasing this because it's long and complex but the great village essentially is something that would have stopped Wife from getting our point or something that will stop us from advancing in this applies to other ancient or other daily was Asians out there supposedly so like say one of the first rate filters would have been pro carrio turning or absorbent might conrail sells the turning into your oats which are multicellular now. Pretty sure I have that right And then of course there's tons every step of every second along the way we didn't have a star blow up and wipe out the earth. Also the position of the Earth. Staying the same in the goldilocks zone as they call it with the moon being able to. Yes tides going. Being able to keep the earth's core.

"An EN- number ten would be that this is an extinction level event. Okay Life on earth as we know it may change okay on that scale of one to ten. What what would you say this is okay? Well my ranking my level of hysteria my personal hysteria. That would be a ten. You know it's always hovering high like that but that would be in terms of the real threat. I think it's an eight. Yeah I think that so. I'm giving it an eight and a ten so together in eighteen. That's pretty high but yeah it really just holding it together talking to you now but I think the thing is we're lagging behind knowledge of where it is because of the lack of sting and the fact that I don't think we're getting accurate testing in from from a lot of the other countries so we don't really know so we are looking you know kind of looking at what was a couple weeks ago and it's it's changing constantly so I think we don't really know where we are. Obviously it's very serious. Is it so serious that we should be closing down the planet? Maybe not but we don't know 'cause 'cause we're looking at it behind so I'm going to give it some credit not credit but I'm GONNA say maybe it's not quite as bad as we think but clearly it is it is it is a true threat and you know. I. I know there are some people who do think it's a hoax. But you know. Hopefully they hopefully proper therapy. You know. They'll they'll come through it and go come back to the planet so we'll see that a lot of people don't understand that I've talked to. I do believe it is a threat. I would stop short of saying that it's going to end the world but it is certainly a threat and a here in Ohio. I've run into a lot of people that don't understand why a healthy people are being made to stay home. Why they why they can't do this or that or the other thing and we had this and I'm GonNa talk to you a little. Bit about millennials coming up but there was the situation last weekend and even this weekend were the spring breakers are still out in full force and People understand well. Why if I'm not in the a group that's getting sick if I'm not in the group that's threatened. Why do I need to stay home? Well here's here's the answer that with the flu for example it's really easy to write off any disease in say well through the course of a year you know so many people are going to die of something. That's just the way things go and and that is true. Okay that's not to minimize anyone's death but that's simply the way life works and it with a flu. We have roughly tens of millions of people who have the flu and most of these flu cases do pass incident but we do have you know upwards of tens of thousands of deaths thirty forty depending on what year it is in what strain was and so on and so forth now with that being said this fits into the category of somebody's going to die of something because we're we're we're at a death rate that's about point. Zero one percent which is deaths per thousand is is a fraction of one. All right right and the other thing is that we know how the flu virus behaves. Okay I it's it's not a mystery. There might be strong. It might be week. We're often on some of the precise predictions but it doesn't do a one eighty on us for the most part. We know how flu behaves. Okay now with that being said with the corona virus right now. We have a mortality rate. That's hovering between two and three percent. I've heard both so what that means is deaths per thousand are well into the whole numbers. Okay you're talking twenty or thirty people. Dead per thousand and if we would have as many people infected with corona as we do the flu which is upwards of as they say thirty fifty forty million whatever we would have close to nine hundred thousand people dead. And here's the here's here's the real thing too is when you have healthy people Creating somewhat of I will call it a a laboratory for the virus to experiment and we have a country of three hundred and thirty million people. What happens what happens is is even if you are healthy and you come into contact with virus and maybe it doesn't make you particularly sick but you pass it along to someone else. That virus has now learned a little bit about you how to defeat your immune system and it's taking it on to the next level so it can change and it can evolve and it can become very dangerous and that's one of the things right now that they're worried about in Italy and as you know they've had hundreds of deaths in just the last twenty four hours they they've had more deaths in Italy then they have had in China and it's getting the younger people there now. Okay because it's just you know I. It's playing in an open field and that's why we have to keep healthy people at home so we don't give this thing a chance to experiment with itself and evolve. Okay it's not you know it's not just a matter of the people who are high risk you know whether it be older folks or people have underlying conditions but even if you are healthy if you allow this thing to make its way through society could become potentially something that is harmful to health people. So that's one reason why they're making everybody stay. Home is just to give this thing. An opportunity to hopscotch around to keep that at a minimum so quite a lot of people. A lot of people aren't getting that but maybe they will in time. I'd I don't know now periods. Let's get back to you. So that was very comprehensive. Now can you administer a true false tested me and I've become a doctor. I really know stuff now. That was terrific. I like the sound of that. Okay well that was. That was great. That was very area guide and I agree a hundred percent with what you said so that I sound intelligent listeners. Okay I would advise this. I am not a medical professional as they always say. Just play one on radio obviously do and and by all means research this yourself right and and and go. Jin Go to fact checking Sources online Madonna somewhat. Listen to ideologue so comprehensive that I think the corona viruses over now look out the window now very good. I think that's very important. Okay well thank you. Thank you billy okay. Do I get to speak? Or what okay so far. I'm ready I'm ready. All right. Bury is a boomer. I self proclaimed boomer and that's kind of where I want to go with this because this is this does tie into the politics of this. Does it does and you know I. I always felt that if there was something that could unite the country. Something like this would do but it but it hasn't happened. We're we're as political with this as we are anything else. I'm thoroughly convinced that if aliens came to our country and took over the World Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump would be pointing fingers at each other. Saying it's your fault would be siding with the different aliens. Nancy Pelosi would side with og and trump would Si- side with sword is and with further break-up. You're exactly right but anyway since you wrote the book and by the way I met you working for your publisher you wrote a book. Nouveau old formerly Q. Do I have the tight rats? What it's called that's right and it is still available on Amazon. My God it's it's it's it's it's live and kicking on Amazon. In fact the few things that you can do now you know during the time of the isolation here that reading good funny book by a boomer is is just what the doctor ordered. I would recommend that everyone go to Amazon and cheer up their days and weeks ahead with Perry Block. What is it called out? The old formerly cute absolutely and and this is a humor book. We want to stress. This is a humor book. I'm going to take this to this. This conversation here. Since that book came out he it was starting to rear its head then there is a certain friction between boomers and millennials then but but it has really grown. Now yes but not in the part of this boomer. I love every generation. There is there is kind of like a friction in the environment. Now yes I want to say right up front that I loved the boomers my generation. I Love Them. We'll any old might Son WHO figures prominently in the Manny Hilarious Sections of this book is Alannah all and often there was. The kind of the interplay between the two of US was was quite a part of that book so I personally love Them. I led the Gen xers too I you know. I don't even know who they are but I love them. And what's the what's the group? After the millennials. I plan to start finding out about them soon in loving them as well but there is a friction. I it seems to be. I don't think it's on the part of the boomers. I mean some boomers would say. The millennials are snowflakes. Are they do they wanna have everything their own way? The new said you know. What is this business with? You know ideological purity tests and you know and safe words and things like that and is that where he s boomer comes from is at that the okay boomer. That's right your right. Yeah and that's and that's a Hashtag by the way has now become a pejorative and by the way anybody can be called. Okay boom. It seems that anybody. Who's really young? If they if they just want to end the conversation they say yeah. Okay boomer whatever all right. That's that's the new thing. They'll say that to anybody when they want the conversation to be over. It's late absolutely. They'll say tenuous. Felicia something like that hit by am. I know millennial stuff my relation. I knew that I now know for years. Don't be tyranny as from what I understand. That's the the the stereotypical millennial woman Negga. That's not board. But but when I was getting was the okay boomer has become a pejorative and by the way I'm generation exit and you're right. Nobody says anything about us because we didn't do anything. Go the hell. Are you still what did in the eighties eighties? Good Times that where you are in the eighties. We grew up in the well. Yeah I think I think the the qualifiers they born in the late sixties but like you said it it doesn't qualify to be a boomer unless you were actually experience the sixty so. I Agree. I fifty hours. Yeah I I'm not sure where it ends. But I believe being a generation XS late sixties the seventies. I'm not sure but most of us were young adults during the nineteen eighties. And you know we loved Ronald Reagan. We Love we love. We Love Ronny and and we like to Party and we liked eighties rock and roll so there you bet. Gen xers were a little more politically conservative than the baby boomers. I guess because that tecate ACTU- actually if you google them and what they are characterized by not caring about anything so yeah we kind of just. Hey whatever we're going to go we're going to go to the clubs in the INSIPID generation. No I I don't see I don't I don't really know that I guess I babysat you not you personally. But I guess I at Jennifer's the thing about the boomers is that you know we were obviously not all but you know we were demonstrating in the sixties and we will or Liberal causes and it was pretty exciting time by the time..

"Now okay. What are you what I was going to ask you is. What's what's the situation there in Philadelphia? Here hieaux very restricted restaurants and bars or closed. Can't have gatherings over a certain number of people they're encouraging people to work from home. What's what's the What's going on there in Philly? We have the same situation here. The schools are closed encouraging. People to Mostly work from home if they can. Restaurants and bars are only for takeout and delivery and and in a way that foreshadows my wisdom from years ago. All of the gyms are closed down a so that you can't go to the gym now. I pioneered that years ago. Not Going to the gym and I kind of a little proud of myself. I predicted that trend. So I guess you'd say I'm a trendsetter as well but that's that is probably very similar to the way that it is where I would say. Yeah one of the things that gets discussed a lot is how much of this is a real threat? And how much of it is hysteria? Okay so I'm GonNa ask you. Perry on a scale of one to ten zero zero to ten zero being that it is an absolute hoax. Okay it's nothing to worry about okay. An EN- number ten would be that this is an extinction level event. Okay Life on earth as we know it may change.

"That's awesome. I know that I'm trying to if I had some. I met a few in Ohio. Okay I don't know that I've I've met somebody out of state and interestingly one of the accounts that I have For doing production work. I connected to on twitter. I've been doing work for her for almost ten years and I still to. This Day have never met her. So yeah it's it's it's amazing. How the how. The world works in that regard. Now if you were going to give advice I if somebody came. Let's say they are. And before that you WanNa talk about your your books the interviews you do with others and stuff and that kind of leads me into this because when you do marketing for authors now one of the things that they almost always tell you is to get a twitter account started Because anything involving music. Which is you know here again with downloads. Now it's not like you have to be at a record store. You can access that material anywhere in the world and same with books now You can either order a book on Amazon or obviously there's the electronic versions so it's so easy when it comes to content To make that available and twitter has an instant reach. It really does. What would be your advice? Let's say to somebody who has something going on? They have a new album coming out or they have a new book coming out and you tell them what you really should get involved with the writing community on twitter. So start a twitter account. What would be your best advice to have a good experience To have a good experience well I think it's changed for me going back to your original thing of how it's changed. I mean I used to if somebody wanted to connect with me. I would connect with them. No big deal I think now. Actually I do a little more betting so I won't just follow people because they're following me okay Yeah Yeah because what I find happens is a follow them back in the next thing you know? I get a DM. Hey how you doing buddy. Well first of all not your body you know and or they start immediately pitching something immediately immediately. It's like wow. That barely went through. And I'm already getting a pitch so I think I would say don't be afraid to not follow people back honestly. I know that sounds Kinda counterproductive. If you're trying to build a business get you. Yeah but to me you want to surround yourself with the people that are your people the people that you want to surround yourself not people that potentially are going to bring you down in some way I would say. Don't be afraid to follow honestly if you've been following somebody in suddenly they start saying things. Because I found those accounts as well. You'll have these wonderful sayings and quotes and then all of a sudden two weeks later. It's things that I go. Oh my gosh. I can't believe they just posted that but it was kind of like a bait and switch situation so I've found Matt as well so I'd say don't be afraid to follow. Also I think this is probably maybe the most important remember that Short tweets are public. That's true forever. Yeah and forever. Everybody mistakes I've made mistakes absolutely but some of the things that I've seen people post on twitter. I'm just SORTA cringing and all died. I don't know if they want that to be there. So you know I think before you event yeah. Well what I've noticed too is I understand there's advocacy for certain health conditions. And things like that but it does seem like there was a time. I'm old enough to remember when your your medical records for example where something that you were very private and now it seems people put them right in their bio. They have a whole list of of medical ailments right in there and it seems like they share so much stuff that you know. Twenty years ago you wouldn't have dreamt of of of putting out there in such a four word way. Is that just me or no? I think I one hundred percent agree. I mean there's over share culture and then going back to what you were saying about artists then versus artists. Now you know. People are so hungry for information about their favorite artists. Their favorite actor their favorite writer. And I get it. I I used to retain beat you know everything but that was controlled. Right yes twitter and other social media platforms. Just don't seem to be controlled at all and like I said once you put it out there it's out there I just think that people need to really really stop and think before they tweet. Yeah lutely absolutely. That's great advice. Some great insights here with you. Jay BEF- before we go towards the end of the interview. I want to talk just a little. Bit about your. Your book reviews. This is this. Something you've just started. Recently or your. I guess it started a six to eight months ago and that started Interestingly enough Andy Rouse writer and I was approached by somebody who was Promoting his book and that book at the time what he's written a million bucks but this book was bloody sheets which is okay story about the cake a book. I actually never would have picked up to tell you the truth but they approached me asked me if I would be willing to read it and review it my policy around that is. I don't like to put negative things out so if I read the book and I don't really like it. I'm not going to review it. That's just the way it is. I read this book. It's like nothing I'd ever read read before it was a hard book to read Not It wasn't over my head. It's just the concept was like. Oh this difficult but I loved it. I loved Andy's writing style so I agree to do it but then I thought I want to take this a step further and so the idea for doing audio video book review or I just use the cover of the book and I always get permission and put it up on. Youtube was born. I don't know where that idea came from it just And then I was like well. There's so many other books that I love you know and other writers so I started doing them to tie Jackson. He's a children's book author but he's one of my friends from back in Massachusetts. We've been friends forever. I've done interviews with him before I decided. Let me do his books. Also I wanted to do the interviews. I want to get back into interviewing again something I used to do in the past so I decided you know what? Let's let's do authors. Why not? I mean I think Thai was the first author I had ever interviewed back out. Under how many years ago this was. Maybe it could have been eight years ago. I don't remember now and I just want to get back into it and I decided. Let's let's do it now. I've interviewed a lot of authors and The to me. The ones who are most interesting are the ones who tell personal stories. I just interviewed. Aalborg here of about a month or two ago and she wrote a book about her mother's memoirs from the Spanish Civil War. Quite frankly I did not know that much about the Spanish civil war okay and and to hear her story What happened In Spain during that time and then her life as an immigrant coming to this country It really there are a lot of things that touched on. What's happening today? A lot of the things you hear about refugees and a lot of the other things so it was an interesting parallel and to hear from somebody who actually experienced. It was very interesting. I find those kinds of personal journeys just absolutely fascinating the ass so absolutely athlete and there's so many books so many authors and they're wonderful and I just I just want them to get some exposure. I guess point. Yeah well I gotTa Tell You you are An Amazing I. I'm I'm just enjoyed listening to you. Have this This great voice.

"And so again. This is stuff that people just don't seem to understand. They think the ones that actually get the importance of copyright thank copyright my song and. I'm good yeah but copywriting. Your Song doesn't get you paid. Believe Oh okay you have to register your song in different areas you have to pick a PR oh so that would be a BMI or a Si Sak You want to register with Sound Exchange. You want to register While you want to get an RC code. That's basically like a bar code except it's not your code you know if you WanNa get a distributor you can go with either a CD baby or tune core or destroy kid. There's just there's a lot of different things that need to happen before you just release your song okay. A lot of the people that I'm friends with musicians that you've CD baby quite a bit and that seems to be a very popular one. Yes yes it is it is. That's what I use actually and there's a difference between the way. Cd Baby Works. The way tune core works on the way. Destroy kid works and it. It really is what you're comfortable with. WanNa share the money that you make on every song upfront or do you want it to be over time. You know so. It's really a lot to research before you make these decisions Although I would say that you know I think I know Cassandra. Pretty well. And she'd say just pick one. Don't let that be your hang out. Just pick one sure interesting. You said about There's there's so many categories of things in so many things to do in the music industry. Now I kind of wonder if it hasn't become so fragmented that it's it's actually hurt. The industry an Oscar opinion about this any song. You WanNa hear now. Pretty much instantly. Available in the palm of your hand in a lot of people have music services or you can download it or whatever and the days of having to wait for your favorite song on the radio or on MTV. Those days are long gone and I kind of wandering let let let's say for example Michael Jackson when he first came on the scene A lot of people who may not have been familiar with him would be exposed to his videos on. Mtv You while they were waiting for whatever band that they were interested in and that drew their attention to something. And I kind of wonder if somebody like Michael Jackson or a one of those types of artists even even going back to sixties where you had so many bands like the doors or you know the even the Beatles if if their fan base just had to be sort of courted on social media and drawn in I I don't know that they would have had the exposure. I don't know that you could have a big breakout artists like Michael Jackson. That just totally dominated everything. I don't know if that is possible. Today I actually would say that. There are a lot of breakout artists that started from social media data or not. I'm actually connected with a few people on twitter that we've been connected from the beginning. We we started off together and I have seen them completely blown up. It's yeah and the cool thing about that is well some of them. Continue to stay connected with those people that were there from the beginning and others not so much you know but it's really really cool to see The people that for instance. I'll give you a name Luke Bryan Luke Bryan and I have been connected on twitter for a long time and is GonNa say it was even before. He got big and famous. He is huge. Obviously we are still connected. Yes yeah so you feel you feel that there is let me put it this way. A lot of people say the good thing about the internet is that everybody has access. The bad thing about the internet is that everybody has access. There's so many voices out there but you kind of feel that you actually have a better chance now than what you did say twenty. Five years ago well I would say it's it's it's a different chance. I think that okay masses. Yes have a chance now whereas before you had to be a part of a label and FM labeled it and pick you up. You had no shot and I shouldn't even say that because of course there are people that still made it even though they didn't have a label picked up by a label eventually because they made their own noise. But I do think that today you have a better shot and you don't need a label which is really kinda interesting really interesting so yes I mean you don't you just don't have to go to a label anymore. You just don't have to do it and I think that is really really really cool. Because the history of labels is not so good in terms you know not paying their artists They're making a ton of money but the artist isn't necessarily a looks good. All that stuff looked great. They looked so glamorous they were living their best life but really they weren't really making the money. Yeah and that's even from. Let's say the early days of rock and roll A lot of those recordings sound subpar by today's standards but not for the reasons that a lot of people know it's not just because the technology has gotten better but let's say in the fifties and even part of the sixties record executives did not take rock and roll seriously so the best Recording engineers the best rooms and everything got Sinatra and Nat King Cole. And all these other people if you were a rock and roll band. Some of them were recorded as crudely as having them set up and pointing a microphone at the band. That's how crude some of those recordings were done so I do believe that. Even through the seventies there was a lot of executives that were out of touch in terms of the creative process. And things like that. Now you you can get more hands on. Would you agree with that? You can actually produce on stuff. Oh my gosh up. Absolutely I'm an I'm I'm I'm not a one woman operation because I do have a producer and a year and all that stuff but ultimately it all comes down to me really. I'm the one doing all the administrative stuff behind the scenes and all that good stuff which like I said is is not that easy. You just have to be organized and stay current getting back to twitter. You mentioned twitter. You've been connected with Some some major folks on twitter. How long have you? You've been on twitter now. You've been on twitter awhile crack yeah Since two thousand nine and I know when it's what did twitter start two thousand seven round there somewhere. I could be wrong but somewhere around in there so you were one of the early adopters. Yeah Yeah Yeah I think that was. That was probably the second well. Maybe I did something else too. Who KNOWS BUT The I was linked in I thank and then it was twitter shortly thereafter. I've been on it a long time. Probably I got on. I believe a year later than you did. So we both might. Yeah we both on it Every every bit of ten years back then the landscape for twitter was a little different than the way behaved was a little different. It was the yes What made you decide to get on? That's a good question I I I wanna say that somebody just mentioned.

"People at a nightclub and you go to out to breakfast at two or three o'clock in the morning after work you're you're gonNA hear some really really bad stuff okay. You're going to hear everything about men. Women whatever okay in the end it. It's it's the way that those things are spoken about in those situations and that's important because if you are at a table with a bunch of nightclub workers after work at three o'clock in the morning at an all night diner that is a different audience then some other time and that's very important okay. It's not that you're being someone that you're not it's not pretending to be somebody else and all that other stuff that people conjure up. It's just you have to know your audience okay. There were things that I would say on a stage in a comedy club that I would never say at my day job doing a business presentation at a country club. Now that's just common sense but anyway like I said I'm going to talk mostly about this from the perspective of men but I can tell you. All people do this a couple of times one time in particular. I can recall being out at one of these breakfast Little get togethers after work and a female bartender was that our table and she went through this ten minute routine. I'll call it of her ex boyfriend's penis and how it didn't have a head okay and a lot of these things that she were was talking about. Were not only crude. But they were mean. They were very now naturally. Everybody at this table is in hysterics And let's just say for the sake of argument that we were somewhere where I would have had a left. A Mike Open or a camera had been rolling and she had been taped and years later years later she's running for Congress okay and for whatever reason. Her campaign is getting national attention. And I come up with this tape. Talking so crudely and so mean about a man's Genitalia and by the way if that situation was flipped if it was a man hugging about female genitalia mean-spirited way completely. Different conversation. And we'll have that. Maybe another time another place. That's even worse for whatever reason but it would be bad for hers. Well it'd be hard for her to explain. While she was performing a sex act on a man she discovered his traits is physical traits and was ridiculing him publicly for it. Now here again. Would that be fair? She was having that conversation with. Presumably friends were companions at three o'clock in the morning in a in a diner. That was almost empty. Did she ever want that conversation publicly? Spread around on the six o'clock news where families are watching. Okay now let's take a similar situation With all men and I can speak about men because I am a man I I believe me. I don't know everything and everybody's different. We all know that and we also know that women talk among themselves in a way. That's unique to them and that's really what this is all about. That's that's the point. I'm trying to make. Is We interact with people. We talked to a certain audience. We relate to them in a certain way that we would not to another group. And I've been in this situation probably a million times. Let's say a bunch of guys go out during the middle of the week and they feast on Chicken Wings and they have these big conversations about all these beers that I know nothing about. Because I don't really drink but we're having a good time. And all of a sudden one of them stands up and says all right. I guess I gotTa get going guys. It's been real late night. GotTa get home and give it to the own late at night. I don't give a tour real good. She's a real bitch in the morning and everybody starts laughing. Tom Go home and give it to her are now. Is that crude? Yeah but is it. Really? What's happening know what's really happening? Is he standing up and saying hey guys having a real good time and we're going to have to do this again but it's getting late and I was really looking forward to spend some time with my wife tonight and everybody at the table? Knows that's what he's saying. Everybody knows that because they know him and they know his heart and they know what he's all about and he's just being a man he's he's being humorous in the way that he knows how and he's feeding his libido maybe a little bit he wants to feel like Vero and Italy's other things and it's it's completely harmless but here's here's the thing. Let's suppose somebody taped him and he was running for mayor and they presented it as listen to how the mayor talks about his wife. This is what he this is how he feels about women and how they should be treated. Would that be fair? He never intended that banter with his friends with people that know him to be public consumption and I just really have a hard time with with trust being violated in that way and as a matter of fact I would also add that. I don't necessarily have a problem with someone talking about sexual things in various sexual experiences that they've had. I don't like it when they talk about someone specific case it's one thing to listen to women talking about men coming in all different shapes and sizes and. I'm not talking about how tall they are. It's another thing to listen to men Talk about breast sizes and all these other things and and how they hang or what have you. It's another thing to have those types of conversations and identify the person that you're talking about that I don't like when someone who shares a moment like that with you whether it's a one night stand or whether it's someone that you've been with for years when they become naked with you I feel that you have an ethical obligation not to describe the most intimate parts of their body. I feel that's that's really bad. I I really want. I'm sitting in listening to that. I I really don't find it humorous. The the humor gets lost when someone is violated in that way here again. Speaking in generalities talking about past experiences in general this experience that I had was someone at one time. That that's fine but when you assign a name and an identity to it I really don't like that. I don't like it when men do it and I don't like it when women do it and I'm not one for Raunchy Talk Anyway and I'm certainly not one for speaking about women in strictly sexual terms. I never have been but I understand the banter. I understand the context of a private conversation. I understand when you're in a closed door meeting. And you're having a heated discussion about a customer or your competitor. Whatever you're going to call them names you're going to do things. You're going to say things about them that you would never intend to present to them. As a matter of venting. And you talk about options in a boardroom. Where you're you're exploring your options. Sometimes you have to explore the worst options to know what the alternatives are and do have those little moments taken from you and presented as this is the person that you are. I feel is very unfair. I don't know if I made that clear today. My discussion or not tried. That was the best I could do. A Billy Billy podcasts. Very much appreciate the listeners.

"So for my money with the Democrats did was for very little reward wrist losing the election to impeach president. I just don't feel that that's a safe bet. It's not a good bet. It might win. I hear again a year away now less than a year away for the election and that's an eternity in politics. But I gotTa tell you I don't know because here's the I'm GonNa Start Talking about the Republicans now. And here's here's where this leads. I am often said that. A president in regard to the economy is a lot like a quarterback. Okay he it's way too much credit when things are good and he gets away too much blame when things go bad all right and the economy for for right now and again a lot can change in. The course of a year is pretty good now. I know there's a lot of people who are going to argue with me and they're going to piecemeal the details about a lot of people have second jobs. A lot of people have given up and all that was true when the economy was being touted under President Obama as well. Okay but here again. This is marketing okay. What I'm talking about today is marketing. Okay and what is sellable and the fact of the matter is is that a good economy helps the incumbent president. It doesn't matter if you feel. He doesn't deserve the credit. It doesn't matter what the details are about the current problems that still exist within the economy. The bottom line is the perception. Is that the economy is good and that is going to help trump if it continues to be that way. Come the fall now. I know the temptation by a lot of Democrats. If they hear this they're gonNA say well that's not right. That's the electorate is stupid and we need to educate them on all. That is fine. Okay if you really feel that way but to save time you really need to come up with a strategy that works with the landscape the way that it is to try to change the world to sell. Your message is a bad marketing plan. The bottom line is this in the court of public opinion. You have no rights. Okay you just have to deal with what is and the simple fact of the matter is a strong economy is going to help president trump. So going back to what I would have told the Democrats to do rather than pursue what is likely going to be a futile path with us. Impeachment is I would have stood up for the things that you've done well okay. For example with health insurance when that whole vote was up with John McCain famously. You're putting his thumb's down in that whole thing there what the Democrats should have centered on was pre existing conditions. That's something that Middle America understand. It doesn't need to be explained. You don't have to instruct people as to why it's important and Obamacare the affordable care. Act All of the good things that were done in that bill should have been stressed and yes. There were fixes that needed to be made absolutely it had its flaws but rather jumping down the whole that that the Republicans set up that it was a disaster and being afraid to talk about it because everybody was saying. Don't talk about it. It's not popular. They should have stood up for the things that were done. Well Democrats have done some things very well talk about those things. Cultivate a brand. You're standing up for something and instead what happens. What are some of the things that the Democrats have talked about? Well the rights for prisoners to vote. Now here again I can just hear all the Democrats out there and all the all all the liberal people standing up with all of the arguments. Why that's important whether there's a lot of people who are in jail who haven't been through process yet and etc etc and all. That is fine but here again this is. This is a marketing discussion. Here we're talking about what sells okay and the voting rights of Norman. Bates don't sell. This is not the hill that you WanNa die on you to get elected. I and I know that you might be ethically very you. Feel very passionate about this. This prisoners to vote thing but it is a very hard sell pre existing conditions being at risk. That's an easy sell. Go for the things that you've done. Well all right moving on to the Republicans if I was advising the Republicans right now all right here again. How much credit you feel. President Trump deserves for the current. Status of the economy is immaterial. The fact of the matter is at the moment. It's good okay so I would be talking about the economy the economy the it's the economy stupid. Remember that line from years past yet still is a lot of times. Sad to say Americans are very much influenced by their pocketbook and right now things are fairly good so that that that is a wave. You want to ride now. They have a viable spokesman. You may not like them. But there's hardly an American citizen in the country a country of over three hundred million people. There's hardly a one person that exists. That doesn't know who president trump is. Okay so you have a spokesman. You have a brand strong strong economy low taxes. All these things stay on that. What does need to happen? Is that Lindsey Graham and Rudy Giuliani. Need shut up. Those two guys aren't need to shut up and it's sad to say because Rudy Giuliani. When the whole thing happened with nine eleven and in the wake of that New York he he was one of the most respected people. He really did handle that. Well and how he he? I don't know what happened to the guy somehow or other rudy. Giuliani turned into a train wreck every time. He opens his mouth. He causes more problems than he solves. Lindsey Graham at the at one point was one of the people that if you didn't like Republicans okay as a whole you could say well Lindsey. Graham's wanted US sane once okay and and his image has changed now okay. He has become a catalyst for controversy. He has become a liability for the for the Republicans. And here we go I. There's no way that you can contain donald trump from what I understand. But there's a guy that needs a shot up as well okay. He really needs to shut up. He needs to shut up on twitter. The twitter thing is a joke. It is an absolute joke. And these mean spirited letters and the the answers to every critic it has to stop providing the economy stays strong and providing the Democrats stay on their current road to nowhere. If this president is going to lose the election is probably going to be largely his own fault him and the people around him. Giuliani Lindsey Graham. All these people. There was a phrase a number of years ago here again I keep calling back to the previous phrases and terms and there was a phrase a while back a kinder gentler conservative. And that's what they need. Okay that is what they need to add to their brand. That would really round out the picture. Get those those people to shut up. Stay off a twitter and come up with a kinder gentler conservative. That's what the that's what they really need to do. Now that's kind of my I guess explanation of how I feel. The political landscape landscape is from a marketing standpoint. What parts of these aspects are sellable? And what are not. I'd be very interested in your opinion. Now you can tweet me anytime. I do not mind being criticized. I will not answer mean-spirited tweets won't do otherwise tweet me at billy dis. Now coming up I will be having more interviews related to politics and A couple of are getting lined up right now as I speak. I don't want this. Podcast become politically fueled podcast. I mean there's so many things that I like to talk about whether it be entertainment people's creativity and that's Kinda where my passion is. I really like creative people. Whether you're an author a blogger a logger. Whatever and you have some sort of content that you like to create and present the people. That's what I really enjoyed talking about. People and hearing the passion in their voice but here again this twenty twenty political landscape like it or not. It cannot be ignored. So I am getting some interviews lined up and it's going to be in. It's going to be an interesting year and interesting I say in some contorted way that means yet but we will find out so. I'M GONNA say that. Today's podcast was an introduction to some of the political content that we're going to have coming up and I want you to know that I'm going to have political guests on here with completely different views. Okay and naturally. I'm going to challenge them enough to keep it interesting but this is not going to be a battleground. I want the guests who come here to feel free to express themselves to make their case for what they believe in and let the audience let the audience digest some of this. So that's the plan and I really hope you come along for the ride. It's going to be interesting as I keep saying. He I am billy dis. You've been listening to the abilities podcast and thank you very much. Well Hello Everyone. I am from the self titled Billy Dis by guests. You can find me on apple.

And we've been talking to them about what they're what they're passionate about what they what they like to do in terms of creating content and we have been talking to them about their experiences onto it or now we've been going for twitter users that have been on the platform for at least five years.

"Did I Have Patricia? H McLeod the author of the Green Goddess of gardening. How're you doing today? Pat Gray Well Vail and you. I'm doing absolutely fantastic We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA talk about your book today. And the the green goddess of gardening and just briefly describe it. The book describes exactly how and what to do to develop gardens and then care for them. It is a concise resource regarding the most important steps to achieve a beautiful garden in an easy to understand terms. The both teaches the reader. How and when to water fertilize prevent bugs prune and many other topics of interest to the aspiring. Gardner are right well this This sounds like a very useful resource. So why did you write this book gave you the idea well after resigning perennial? God? Who's an landscapes for clients and friends? I soon realized after many telephone calls and emails that they did not know how to keep the guidance beautiful and could not find the correct information therefore I decided that they needed help and to give them that help. I writing the green goddess of gardening. Okay how there's a lot of books about gardening and fertilizing and how to make your lawn beautiful how to do things with your hedges and all this other stuff. So what makes this book different from other gardening books well? It is quite different than other gardening books. Which have lots of pictures and only tells you if a plant needs sun or shade? The green goddess of gardening takes the Rita from buying the plant to a step by step process to achieve that dream. Guide US A lot of people who have read the book they say it has very good information for beginning gardeners and those who are more advanced well beginning Godmanis as well as those in advance told me that the chapters on some of the individual plants have given them more details on how to plant those in. Kaffa them that they really get in other books. Also a Advanced Gardner was reading about roses in my book and then told her husband. Well this is why roses and not blooming as well as they should and so that. It's takes the beginning Gardner from at step two step and the advanced God. They people have told me. Well they didn't realize you had to fertilize your contain a plants consistently and they also said. I should have written the green goddess some gardening. A long time ago would have been a great help for them then and it's a great help now to the beginning as well as the chance Guidon. Why do you emphasize the power of correct fertilize Asian? That's very important. Proper fertilization. Means the difference between blooms are no blooms at all our spice balloons. When and how much to fertilize. And what kind of US is detailed in my book? Because it's very important if you don't fertilize If you don't realize too many people just think they plant the plant. And that's it but fertilization. For blooming plants you would use the super phosphate and but of all. Plants need some help with fertilization. Because they nutrient Skep- leached from the soil by the winter winds by by moisture by Snow. So that the the various plants have different requirements for fertilisation and. I've gone thoroughly on that for various plants and and told them the importance of it. Okay now the book is written in dark print and large lettering. And it's easy to read and understand. Obviously you did this deliberately. I did. I definitely did having tried to read so many gardening magazines that are written in the smallest prince ever so I had it written in dock prints and good size lettuce so that's the green goddess of gardening is an easily breed without running for their glasses and the book can be kept in the gardening baskets for easy reference. And IT'S A IT'S A. It's very easy to read and so many of my friends have also told me that. That's great. Oh I'm sure that I mean the one thing I can't stand is trying to go through some information and you and you practically have to have a magnifying glass to to to go through it now.
