To, be talking to you welcome to skin from the couch. Thank you so much. I'm really excited to. So I was kicked out of ballet at age four. So naturally made sense that I. Did this interview with you very excited for a cer- bond over all things ballet. So we're going to start how I like to start all interviews with just skim your resume. I started bollywood thirteen years old. It was not something that I had thought possible or knew anything about a my stumbled into it was discovered at my boys and Girls Club, the local community center across the street from public. School in San Pedro California, it was there that my valley teacher taught me my first class on a basketball court and she told me I was a prodigy after an hour of working with her she ended up inviting me to train with her in her studio on full scholarship and I ended up moving. In with her and her family to be able to train lean tensely for the next three years I trained for another year and a half at a different studio. By the time, I was seventeen about four years of training. I was living in New York City dancing professionally for American Ballet Theatre I went on to dance as a quarter ballet member for seven years I was the only black woman in American ballet theatre for the first decade of my career I then went on to become the third black female soloist in their history. In in two thousand, fifteen I became the first ever black principal Ballerina. Ballet, theater now, in their eighty year history found a lot of incredible opportunities along the way amazing opportunities for endorsement deals things that you don't typically see ballet dancer getting the opportunity to do estee lauder in Saco in. Getting the chance to perform with Prince and Taylor. Swift. I've had a very diverse career adding author to it. Extremely excited that I have the opportunity to. Children's books along with other genres but I'm really excited about this upcoming book on heads. I just got the book and it's fantastic. So I'm very excited to give it to people as gifts. Obviously you've lived in the public eye now for many years and you have a lot of fans especially, it's Kim H. Q.. What is something that your fans don't know about you something we can. Google. Recipe Ah. So this is proof of this. I'm I'm probably one of the clumsy as people we recently moved into. Will me my husband bought a home and amazing designer newly renovated everything and yesterday I was enjoying my Sunday with spicy crab kind of jump Eliah and I tripped over the carpet in spilled the whole thing on our Blue Velvet Sofa and how did you have an emergency let cleaner come in and clean like deep clean. The entire thing I am very surprised you. I would. Never Clumsy. How can you be a clumsy Ballerina I think there's something that happens when you're not on stage you're not in the studio where you're so focused. So much of the time on I mean naturally I'm coordinated but I'm there's just so much focus on my body that when I'm not having to do it I feel like I just completely let go I. Think the title of Your next book should be the Clumsy Ballerina just putting that out there. Yes. Next Children's book. I WanNa talk about your childhood. This career podcast, we talked to you so many amazing female leaders at the top of their respective names and obviously so much who each of us are because of how we grew up and the mark that are our parents family structure leave on us, and that informs how we can go out into the world top. Tell us a little bit just about your childhood and what it was like growing up. Yeah I mean absolutely shaped informed how I saw the world and approached everything that I did I was born in Kansas City Missouri, which a lot of people don't really know that I was two years old when my mom left my father and took her four kids on a bus. We drove from Kansas City Missouri to southern California where that was kind of the start of my life That's pretty much in my memory. All I remember is California growing up we moved a lot my mother married two more times had to march children my. Life which is constantly in motion and it was constant. There just wasn't a lot of security and so I think that it made me into the extremely introverted girl that I was I was embarrassed about the way that we lived We didn't have a home a struggled to put food on the table. I'm mother ultimately ended up raising six children on her own, and there was just a lot of hiding things. I wanted in no way to stand out which is pretty crazy. I ended up in a field where I'm out there exposed in performing for. So many but but it was on my terms and so when I could, when I could be a part of something where I could share my voice and my experiences without speaking, it was exactly like what the doctor ordered. It was just what I what I needed as a young person in I didn't have arts in my life until I was thirteen and so it was really difficult for me to survive by the time I started dancing. We were living in a motel just constantly moving from different places whatever we could afford I think that had. I not experienced. You know just no stability a lot of abuse There were so many things that I just felt like I learned to be a survivor and I was just constantly in survival mode. So stepping into the world of ballet, it was like peace and balance and security and consistency, and it was the opposite of what my world was in. So I think that's one of the reasons I was so drawn to it as well as you know I, think a lot of people look at the ballet world and they think you know it's Mean, it is difficult to thrive and to be successful in. All the hardships I felt like if I can get through all I have in my thirteen years with the life I've been living I can get through anything so I felt like I was so prepared not only as a young person to be in in the ballet world, but also as a black woman that was probably the one thing that I really felt secure in my identity was the fact that I mother raised me with the understanding that as soon as I leave the house every morning I'm a black girl in that so I'm going to be viewed and treated in. So there was no a lack of understanding in that area. Of My identity and so I think that really served me well when I entered the very white valet worlds.
First Presidential Debate: What to Expect
"And David, You have been through a lot with the president. So you probably know how he is preparing for this debate. He tell us about it. Well, we You know, I have that's true. I've been around this president for a long time. And you know he is the hardest working. Ah, man that I know on DH. He's working. Every minute of every day for this Cherie, and what he's doing now is he's working every day for the country is president. Then he's got a second full time job, which is Being a candidate for president. So it's pretty interesting for me to watch him have to really juggle both jobs. Every incumbent has to do it for this. This president put it, You know, really the gas pedal down all ahead full, and he's Very excited about tonight. He's he's looking for a great debate. Look, Joe Biden has been a member. Of the greatest debate club in the world history, the United States Senate and he's been there for a long time, almost 50 years, and so you look at this president and we say, and the president saying that he's done more in 48 months. Then Joe Biden is done in 48 years, and I think the record is very clear about that. I agree with you, but, you know, some folks speak to the people who are kind of nervous on our side of the aisle, who are kind of nervous about tonight. Like you just said bite. It is part of his club, the Senate. He's been there for 47 years. We've seen them debate in the past. Most recently are should say in 2012, was it It was with the with the Ryan Paul Ryan, and it was were a lot of us were shocked that Aggressive. He was and how thrown off Paul Ryan was. I don't think it is you could throw President Trump off. Is there anything they have trump? If Biden is on his game, what should be looking out for? I think it's going to be interesting if he is on his game. I think it's going to go. You know, people are gonna wonder, eh? I'm wondering whether or not Joe Biden is up for this job, whether he's up for the debate. He's been hiding for six months in his basement, so I'm interested in his mental acuity. I'm interested in the guy's gas machine, so we're going to see firsthand tonight. Whether he could go 90 minutes without a Gaff. If you can go 90 minutes standing on a stage no teleprompter. No. Mrs Biden, no Dr Biden to help him answer questions. Nobody with no cards. You know it's going to be a very interesting, you know, thing. Toe watch. Ah, on one hand, and on the other hand, you have the issues which are all on Donald Trump's side, because if we make this if it's the president Make this issue makes his campaign and the debate site and is able to talk about these issues. Whether it's higher taxes versus lower taxes, more job killing regulations versus fewer regulations, whether it's open borders and free health care for illegal immigrants. Whether it's Ah, anarchy in the streets and be funding the police, or is it about lower taxes and cutting regulation and creating the vibrant economy that we had? Before the Chinese buyers. What, Or is it about border security isn't about supporting, you know, are our men and women in blue and making sure that the president continues to have their back? So this is This is what Ronald Reagan called bold colors, not pale pastels. Let's create a stark difference between the two candidates, and that's what President Trump is going to do tonight, and I think it's gonna shine. I think he'll shine. He's not going to be put off by anything. Joe Biden give me a break. You know Donald Trump, you know, going to be very forward leaning, and he's going to be ready for anything that that Joe Biden throws at

On Kobe nineteen so well that now he's resuming. Finishing Avatar three. Which is ninety five percent done and Avatar to is. One, hundred percent done. And you can read the headliner here from deadline. James Cameron says ever to filming is one hundred percent complete avatar three, ninety, five, percent complete praises New Zealand for Kobe response you probably saying, yeah, whatever man that's what they say. You know they always important as we see in never works out that way I don't believe him. Well, if you don't believe they headline right there maybe not only you'll feel better if you hear from the man himself James Cameron. But also. From the man who made James Cameron the man of versa. Honest wasn't Nigger Aka the terminator. They had a little discussion about this over of zoom call and. James Cameras steams he can't tell you details, but he seems a very confident that New Zealand. They know what they're doing over there, which allows him to finish his movie. Now before I go all the House, go movie question if you don't mind. Okay. All right. Mental. Kind of interview I just is anything I. Know you're in the middle of shooting Aba I know you've to get up to the individual because of the time changing into sealant the NORAD stop. Dummy sanding newsworthy at that you should know from administer movie coming out in the theaters in what's going on. I. Love Kobe, hit us like it hit everybody it is hard. We lost about four and a half months of production as a result of that we've rolled around one more full year for release in December of twenty two that's been that's been announced already. Now that doesn't mean that I have an extra year to finish the film because the day we deliver Avatar to will start working on finishing avatar three. So where we are right now down in New Zealand shooting, we're shooting the remainder of the live action. We've got about ten percent left to go where one hundred percent complete on Avatar to you know just gotTa stop here real quick and just say I'm looking at. autosport house and it looks adorable.

You know I. Mean this funny. He does this big as guy that got this sense of the Shelf Baker. I like the meanwhile we're James Cameron living. That's my question. It seems very desolate like obviously he's on. His home or whatever. But you think you would spruce that thing up. It looks like a fucking like not a motel, but there's nothing on the walls man got the. Flour barely staying alive. Looks like he's at the W.. Two is about underwater and he's not watering those goddamn plants. Not at all, but he loves blue got a big. Blue Door? A Little. That was the way I can actually know if it was at James Cameron Movie, the Terminator Robert Patrick shows up in terminator two and that Shit immediately goes blue true lies shot in that blue tent for the entire movie. He's got a distinct style say that I believe he actually had a cat spray painted blue. Around the house inspiration, it's a genius I can do this. It's inspiration. You'll get it in twelve years whatever want to give me a couple of years actually kept talking. To resume that conversation right here we're short of ninety, five percent complete on on. The painting. That's a door God damnit. We're just we're very lucky in that. We chose this as our production site years ago we made the first film here in New Zealand and it turns out to be one of the its its ranking to the first or second best country in the world for its Kobe. Response. Germany's in the number one spot sometimes New Zealand's in the number one spot. So now all I do is sit back. And wait for the rest of the world to get their shit together.

Blue Jays face Rays as underdogs in wild card playoff series
"Playoffs start tomorrow maybe even today even yesterday as you're listening to this, we're going to go. I mean ordinarily take quite a bit of time and Karen previewing each series. But we don't have that kind of time because there are eight playoff series and they are best of three which is going to lend itself to all kinds of chaos and so we're GonNa go through each of these series intern. We're going to turn hit the high notes and then at the very end deliver, our world series picks So let's start with the top series in the American league the Tampa Bay rays versus the Toronto Slash Buffalo Bluejays. The first bullet point I have in my notes here is with because the Toronto Blue Jays with with Vladimir Guerrero junior and hundred. View. A Hundred Kirk. This is a wide team and I love and as much as as high as I am on the radio. I'm very excited. See the Blue Jays in the playoffs this help them or hurt them here I think dot you've seen all hundred kirk hit I. Think how can you? How can you say anything other than than the with helps them yeah. I like the idea that maybe Vlad as just gonNA break out suddenly in the playoffs because he's looked really good the last couple of weeks or so and it would. Be Wonderful if he just figured out how to hit the ball in the air and really had a great October and it'd be really fun if Nate Pearson came back from injury and turned into a bullpen weapon this month but I just personally don't see a great case for the Jays over the race I think they're both good teams. I. Think The an exciting team with a bright future but the race are really good and I think beyond review who is not even starting game one for the Jays I just don't have A. Lot of faith in most of that trump rotation or bullpen frankly and other than the game restarts it seems to me that Tampa Bay has the pitching edge both in the bullpen and the rotation and offensively maybe it's a wash, but it just seems to me that the the pitching edge is firmly in Tampa Bay side. So I think the Toronto Bullpen and this is going to be the kind of thing that gets said right before they give up nine runs in the seventh inning eight-game one I think it's better than baby. You think maybe they get given credit for I could see a path with this pitching because what they what they're going to try to do apparently is is bullpen game it with a match shoemaker taking up a little bit of load on the front of the maybe we get Pearson in the end of game one we haven't seen blake Snell pitched that deep in games in the postseason in the past, and then game too. I think you could make an argument that we use the best pitcher in the series. So if that happens. If. The blue, Jays do need to shoot the moon but I could see how they get it how they get it done with that said, this raise team just has so much depth in the lineup. There are good defensively they have so many pitchers not just the scary. Snell Morton tile glass now types just the I mean we saw this in the unfortunately in the for for me in the last weekend of the of the regular season where they shut down the phillies like even down to bespectacled Wade Miley who was lights out in the last game of the season yeah. The razor they've just got too much pitching I. Think as much as funny. It would be to see the the Blue Jays fight I think the the rates are going to take this one pretty handling.
White House Vows To Have Something To Stick In Your Arm By October
"When will there be a vaccine that's been the question on everyone's mind since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. And today we may finally have a clearer picture of the timeline yesterday President Trump filed to definitely something to stick in your arms soon. And as ordered the rollout of some kind of sharp pointy medicine thing that will poke you by the end of October at the latest your CDC deputy director and shook it on the White House has promised thanks to our nation's doctors being at the Forefront of medical and scientific research and our American Ingenuity. The US will be the first country to distribute a stabby pointy pain a vile thingy designed to be jabbed directly into patients muscle or skin or something and it will have some effect on your body either good or bad joining us. Now with more is ope our health corporate agenda Resnick. So Jenna, it sounds like something that at least resembles a vaccine could be on the horizon exactly which phase of the process is it in well as of right now Leslie, we really don't know very much but what we do know is this President Trump has guaranteed that all Americans will get stuck with something in their arm by election day. Now so far Pfizer Moderne and AstraZeneca have all been able to develop some very promising poking methods extremely sharp long and wet take a listen after ten long months. We know Americans are ready and excited to get stabbed soon people just like you and me will be able to go to a pharmacy down pay money and get stabbed through the skin with a vial of goo in a very painful way. Well, I gotta say that can't come soon enough, but I have to admit Jenna I really wasn't expecting to get stabbed by our government until Twenty-One at the earliest. That's right. Some were even estimating 2024 is a more realistic time frame for having a stranger in Scrubs inject healing juices into your veins. But according to the CDC even with the accelerated schedule early trials are going well. So far. The devices have been very effective at going into and out of arms as well as shooting the liquid which has been amply moist. They are however still trying to work out some of the quote Peppa Pig. And deadly side effects, but that's not going to stop them from rolling this thing out and Walgreens and CVS Pharmacies across the country as soon as possible. Oh Walgreens, that's where I buy my little bottles of orange juice and large fish oil pills every morning so you can count me and but Jenna I have to assume people are going to be pretty excited to have their skin punctured once it's available and personally, I'd rather endanger everyone around me or even die myself rather than wait in line longer than 15 seconds. How does the government plan to roll this out in a way that meets the high demand? Well, it's certainly going to be difficult. But the plan as of now is to prioritize Suburban patients who are also undecided voters. The White House also wants to focus on high-risk patients like the elderly particularly in blue States and is planning to stab them all in the neck presumably so the serum can get to their brain faster interesting tactical. How much is it going to cost while there had certainly been talk of it being no cost to patients. The price has actually yet to be set according to the CDC so far they've estimated it could cost either $10 5 home. Dollars or even one hundred thousand dollars depending on how desperate we get small price to pay for a vaccine that may or may not work. Thanks Jenna when it comes out. I'll be first in line. Otherwise, I'm not getting it. I'm a busy man. Anyway, that's opr is Jenna Resnick back in a moment? You know even with a vaccine, I'm still not sure if I'll ever feel quite comfortable enough to go back to a restaurant again and hide in the big garbage can and the kitchen so that when the wait staff clears off the food left behind on both of those plates at lands right into my open mouth allowing me to eat a free meal with the people working at the restaurant being none the wiser, but who knows maybe one day we'll be able to get back to some sense of normalcy. Anyway, here's what I need to know today the far-right conspiracy theory dub qanon has gained an alarming amount of traction in the lead up to this year's presidential election. And today we may have more of an understanding as to why a new psychological study published this morning has found that the appeal of qanon can be attributed largely to it being one hundred percent true top psychiatric researchers have concluded that when a certain type of person is presented with the fact that our government is secretly run by a cabal of Satan worshipping pedophiles. They will have a tendency to believe these claims due to the fact that they're totally real and absolutely can be backed up with hard undeniable evidence if you just Just read between the lines interesting. They may have to dive into my Facebook feed and do a little research on this for myself and big news for bird lovers today is ornithologist from the University of Rhode Island have been founded a ten million dollar Grant to research whether that big bird up. There is a hawk researchers are hopeful that this newly secured funding will help them ascertain whether the burden question is indeed a hawk and not some kind of ego long possibly even a falcon in will allow them to expand their investigation by passing around the binoculars so they can all get a better look at that thing. And finally as we near the end of the month Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti has unveiled his plan to combat the city's growing homeless population brought on by the mass evictions plaguing his city mayor Garcetti announced today his administration stands committed to ensuring every Los angeleno has a roof over their head and that he would personally be sending around some pretty reasonable Zillow listings to those in need sounds like a great plan and if any homeless residents are listening take my advice if you see something you like on one of them. Listings hop on a quick anything under a million usually gets cooped up pretty fast. And that's the topical for today on Leslie Price.

A Look at the Amazon Event 2020
"To this big amazon event. There was so much stuff so much stuff that was announced. Although it wasn't all related to Lexi specifically, but I'm just going to run through a couple of things in general just logically about the things that they announced and then I'm going to focus on some of the things that are a little more relevant to us Canadians. I will say first of all the thing that I noticed the most with this with this event, I was very fortunate to be invited to a watch online and the the big theme to me seemed the ambient home Amazon is really really stressing this idea of ambient Computing where the wage Devices where the computers were the the technology is just around us and that is why Lexie is such an important part of this but it's not the only part and so they did announce a number of products and I will come back to these in a bit but they announced the new Echo all of these are now spherical which is very interesting and I'll talk more about that. Like I say in a few moments they announce a new Echo. They announce a new Echo dot with clock being else a new Echo. For kids. This looks like it's only going to be the United States for now. They announced a new Echo Show ten, which is really interesting. It actually moves to follow you thought more about that in a few moments. They also announced a Fire TV stick a new version of Fire TV stick light 06 a wireless mesh system for home Euro-Pro 6, they announce a whole bunch of ring alarms for the car. So a ring Car Alarm a ring car cam and a ring always home cam which is very interesting. Is a device that is in your home and it's actually a little drone crazy stuff. This is like sci-fi stuff will come back to that one as well. And then they also launched something called Luna game controller and it looks like Amazon's new game streaming service is built using this control and it's built in the cloud, which is very interesting as opposed to other gaming sources. So that is the quick rundown on what they announced some of the things that I expected to see that I didn't see were any updates on any type of wearable devices because I always think I still think that when you compare let's say Google or Samsung to Amazon you think Amazon's doing such amazing things, but what is their weakness is that they don't have their own phone. And so I bought one of their strategies to get Lexie into the ears. Everybody is to get Lexie everywhere as I say have have Lexie everywhere and one of the ways I think they could be doing that is through wearables like last year. We saw the March 8th. The glasses and the echo Loop the ring but this year we didn't see anything like that. And I don't know I have questions about that is that because they have some more products that are in the works, but they weren't quite yet ready to be released. Is it because they've changed their strategy? I'm not sure but I I did find that out quite interesting. Now. I do want to talk specifically about the the devices the new device has rejected to Lexi of course and Tyler. Each one and some pre release dates and pricing and all that kind of fun stuff. Okay. So let's talk about the new Echo. So as you know, the echo previously was the cylindrical device. It's the basic device that thought they are released and there's been a number of iterations number of generations. And now we are out. We're up to the echo fourth-generation. Let me tell you a little about this first of all it took Spherical I think it looks pretty cool. I think it's very modern. And now the ring light is actually kind of along the bottom so around the base of the sphere. So it's a sphere with sort of a flat base and the ring lights along that flat base at the bottom. And so when it's when the ring light is on depending on the lighting of the room, it actually kind of creates a little bit of a a bluish glow down onto the surface which it looks pretty cool. It's actually got its got better technology. Obviously when they're releasing a new version on the top. It does have a microphone on and off button is still some buttons along the top of the sphere but they appear at least from the picture to be more flush with the sphere. This one comes in charcoal. It comes in glacier white and it came in Twilight blue. Okay, and here's something very interesting about this is it looks like Amazon has gotten rid of the Echo Plus and if you remember the Echo Plus had the smart home hub in it now the echo. The Hub built into it so great. I mean if you're looking for the ability to set up zigbee devices or for example ring smart lighting Products and all that kind of stuff locked sensors, it's now made simple with the standard Echo. It is part of that the other thing that it has built into it now that I should mention is it has a temperature sensor so you can also know the temperature off the bat and you know, you would expect that then based on temperature settings. This will be able to control Smart Home actions. The dimensions wage of this device are approximately 14 and half centimeters wide by about thirteen centimeters tall.

Trump reels from taxes bombshell as he gets set for crunch debate with Biden
"Tax returns are a focus of for Democrats after a report in The New York Times The report is giving some potential ammunition for Democratic challenger Joe Biden ahead of tomorrow night's debate.

The president's tried to keep private they reveal he paid just $750 in federal income tax is the year he ran for office and none in 10 of the previous 15 years. Largely because he reported losing more money than he made its total, fakeness say.

Trump's Taxes Show Chronic Losses and Years of Income Tax Avoidance

Tax bombshell reveals Trump's image is a sham
"In federal income tax is the year he ran for office and paid zero income taxes at all in many other years. Threatened to undercut his campaign. But the allegations go to the very heart of Mr Trump's appeal, especially among blue collar voters in states like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin in Michigan, who propelled him to the presidency in 2016. Joining us now is a B C's, Adam, Kelsey and first off How did Mr Trump get away with not paying his taxes? Well, Jeff what it comes down to is ah lot of reductions in the amount of taxable income that President Trump has because he takes so many loans because of so many investments in companies that that Are not necessarily under his name. He can write off. Ah, lot of the income that ends up coming back into him. So what you've got here is 10 out of the past 15 years for which The New York Times had these tax records from 2017 going all the way back to 2000 to 10 of those 15 years, President Trump As you mentioned did not pay federal income taxes. There was ah, year or two in which he did pay tens of millions of dollars in taxes to the IRS actually returned that to trump upwards of $70 million in a refund that he claimed he was due again, based on some risky investments that he made the the IRS rules and regulations allow into claim those as Boston coming. Those were returned. So now that $70 million is the subject of an audit, there's a debate between the president. Oh, and his own federal government over how much you may have to pay back. But the bigger picture that you were mentioning is that this really strikes at the heart of what's so many Trump supporters liked about him that he was a successful businessman, a self proclaimed billionaire and looking through these financial records, it would. Actually it paints the picture of somebody who, instead of being worth billions of dollars could oh, upwards of billions of dollars to several different Ah, loners of money. You've got hundreds of millions of dollars and Loans for buildings that President Trump owns in New York City and across the country that are going to be coming due in the next couple of years. It's raising some questions today about whether or not it's such a good idea to have a president United States it would be on the hook for such a big deal coming up. Is anything in the president's tax is illegal. What did we find any legal wrongdoing? There was all hit all his deductions and everything he did above board. Ah, lot of it is above board. And that's that's one of the major criticism that's being levied today Is that the same Ah senators, congressmen who are criticizing President Trump for pains so little were in some ways the architects of the affluent tax loopholes that he and his accounts were able to take. But there are some questions about some of the moves. He's made one in particular, that's been getting a lot of traction and social media for the past 24 hours. His payments that President Trump me do his daughter Ivanka. She's obviously an employee of the Trump administration. She was receiving a regular salary, but in addition was receiving money for consulting work that President Trump then turned around and tried to take off his taxes basically as a refund, So there's some questions there. About whether you know that this double dipping is potentially fraudulent, and whether either Ivanka Trump shouldn't have been receiving those consulting fees or of President Trump shouldn't have been writing those off tax. How is the president defended his actions. All the kneejerk reaction yesterday was that this was fake news to which critics of the president said. Well, if this isn't true, if these aren't your tax returns, all you need to do is turn over your realtor tax returns and proved that the New York Times is wrong on this. Obviously, the president hasn't done this and then The resulting hours we've seen, you know a lot of deflection. We've seen the president and his Children going on television and talking instead about Joe Biden and his son, Hunter and Hunter Biden dealings with With Russia and with businesses in the Ukraine so instead of kind of head on addressing these issues, trying to distract the media if you will to talk about different matters instead. But I wouldn't anticipate that with the first presidential debate coming up about 24 hours from now, Tuesday evening, we're certainly gonna cure President Trump have to answer for this situation. All right. That's a B, C's and Kelsey. Thank you so much for joining us. Come on

Thanks for listening, and now let's get into the episode. Welcome to the Blue Economy podcast presented by Rhode Island the ocean state. I'm your host David Hirschmann. On this podcast were diving deep into everything that's happening in the world's growing ocean economy, and on this episode, we're talking about the federal government. Specifically, we wanted to talk about what the government is currently doing from a policy perspective or what it can do to support a wide range of businesses operating in and around the ocean, and perhaps more importantly, we want to talk about what the government is doing to protect the oceans themselves because between significant increases in water temperature, the rising sea levels, acidification, plastic, pollution, and plenty of other mitigating factors. The world's oceans are certainly dealing with their fair share of environmental issues cover all of. This we had the opportunity to sit down with our guest on today's episode United States Senator Sheldon Whitehouse Senator Whitehouse has a well earned reputation as one of the nation's leading voices on the realities of climate change his climate speeches on the Senate floor two, hundred, fifty of them in counting have become iconic in their own right and over the course of his career as a lawmaker, he has introduced co sponsored a long list of sustainability focused bills. He's also acted as a vocal champion for emerging environmentally conscious industries like offshore renewable energy and along with Republican Senator Lisa. Murkowski. From Alaska, he co chairs the bipartisan Senate Oceans Caucus? There are few elected leaders in the nation better suited to provide insight on the federal government's role in the ocean economy, and so we were thrilled to have Senator Whitehouse with us. We recorded this interview in March Twenty Twenty in our studio in downtown Providence. Once again,.

This is Penny Franklin and I've known for quite a few years I when I worked in Montgomery County public schools in southwest Virginia. I knew her as school. Board member and then In more recent years I get to see her in action. Do an amazing work with the dialogue on race. So I'm so excited that she's agreed to be with me today. And Tell Her story. In the roads framework homegrown solutions for patchwork world so welcome penny. Glad you're here to be here. Thank you so we're going to just start by asking you to speak to our homegrown quadrant. Which is where were you grown or your people. And why are those routes important to you? I was born and raised here in South West Virginia. Montgomery County Christian spurred. I'm one of seven children number. Four in the middle I grew up in a segregated community they schools integrated when I was in a second grade and that had a huge impact on me. I did not really know it then but I can tell with the work that I do. In reflecting back on why Think in pushed so hard about different things a lot of that comes back from experiences through going through integration. My father is from Chris. Byrd was from Christmas. Bird went to youngstown. Ohio as many African Americans did in the forties fifties to find work. Because they couldn't find work in the south met my mother in yet stand. Ohio married her and then bought her back to do snake. Holler in Christian spurred and she says she didn't know it then but she realized that God had this little piece of heaven ready for her. She said she cried a lot when she woke up the next Lord looked around and realized where he was so with her being from Ohio. She did not. She hit not really experienced segregation Like it was in the south and she has this attitude of care right. I remember I remember her telling stories about my grandmother telling her when she would go to town and go shopping. That you know like people weren't allowed to try on clothes and she was like whatever and going into like an art store and tried on clothes and nobody said anything She just an amazing woman who helped ingrain this attitude of her her. She would make a comment that I can it dwells in the back of my head all the time. Who said so. You know when someone would say something that she didn't agree with or she questioned she would necessarily get into a big discussion. She would just say who says right and that would be the end of his life. Whatever so that attitude of WHO said something can't change or something has to be a certain way because of race or socio economic situations or whatever it is not just than who sets out so you just ignore it change. It is different so growing up in those first. Few Years of integration. The first two years was in a classroom with a teacher who had first and second grade students together in a small classroom when I reflect and go back into that building now on my goodness. How did this happen? So we're talking. Kids that came from all over the surrounding area were bussed in our other. Children were busting because I just love about a mile from that building. Friends Elementary School. And when you think about it you had a classroom full of at that time. Six Euros and seven year olds sick of first and second graders and there had to have been at least fifteen to twenty children in each of those classes. If not more and I remember someone meeting with me. And I can't remember the individual's name and they showed a roster where Montgomery County showed. How many of the students that were in the school friends elementary and in the classes and it had this crazy little number like channel twelve students in the class and a look at my family alone was bigger than that so. I know that this is not correct. So the numbers that were put out there to reflect how many students for actually being taught by one teacher in a classroom. They're not true so I would love some day to go and figure out how to look at look that information up again to see exactly how. The African American population was documented in Montgomery County during that period of time especially at the elementary level. Because that's the will had four classrooms versus second were together third and fourth where together fifth in six were together and I remember going into fifth and sixth grade classroom and by that time kids are getting big and it was the same size as orthodox smaller than the first and second grade classroom and the kids were just wedged in there. I remember trying to walk between the seats because I had bought a cocoon to school and it has in. It was a lunar moth. I will never forget that anytime. I see a picture of one or whatever like I know better than lunar moth and headed in a jar and was able to carry that around to the other classrooms to show them. You know what had happened out of a cocoon and you could barely get between the rows of students because that classroom was so jam packed and then the seventh grade was in a classroom by itself. Third Grade Experience was at Willow Baker Elementary School in the Cambria area and explain that experience as being walking into a school that was full of the daughters. The confederacy they did not want us there. It was obvious I don't know if it was just because of the wear to school was located. And how the district lines were drawn. It was mostly poor. White students and a handful of African American students were. The line stopped the traditional traditional but of the African American community. Because you know we only live certain places so we tended to live in the same area and the line stopped not far from that school and because my family lived out in the county we were not in Christopher Cambria us at that time so it was a small population of African American families because we lived on the literally the other side of the heel and we went to this goal so students Wyatt spent the first two years of my education with friends elementary school and went to church with mini van played with many of them all of a sudden we were separated and thrown into a world. That was not good. I learned very little so came into that and the third grade fourth grade I would make up stories of being sick not feeling good Do things to try to make myself sick. Like walking around outside without a code on no shoes on my mother many times she started working at the Arsenal and if she were if she was on the midnight shift. I would just kind of hide in my bedroom and missed the bus and then when she would come home because she wouldn't get home until after we hit Arganda school I would create down the stairs and try to convince her. I didn't feel good agricultural time. She just made me walk. I missed so much that almost failed the fourth grade and I remember the teacher getting with my mother and giving her makeup work and one of the things I really didn't like about. The fourth grade was Virginia history. I wasn't really sure why didn't like it. I just did not like it. I remember that I remember the smell of that book. The pictures in that book or basically black and white sketches maybe a little tin of colored or center so between a teacher who obviously didn't care for you and Just a situation that was not good and then so I managed to make up the word and pass grade went to fifth and it was who was out first grade through fifth grade and my whole world changed so to speak as far as education. When I got out of that building I basically made straight DIS. The whole time through that building I learned little with nothing in first and second grade because of the size.

"If there are places in your life that you have found talking across difference more challenging. I can go into a prison. And I've volunteered and taught and led programs in prison off and on over thirty years and I can identify with people who've done hideous things in Awsat with people who committed murder and had committed rape and everything in between and I can find the spark of the divine and now but boy listening to them. These impeachment hearings early on in the work with prison. My challenge was to find myself in the correctional officers. Correctional officers are not a monolithic group. But I might go into the employee parking lot and see bumper stickers politically extremely conservative and hold views really different than my own. I had to I was like can I find myself in that person and so for me yes if you said where would the hardest conversations be certainly to some degree across political lines? Although I think the larger issue wouldn't necessarily be someone just maybe who votes differently than because I can understand that we might share a common value and have a different strategy or believe that this policy is a better way to address that so I want educational equity. I might think it looks like this and you might think it looks like that but what we what we both want is for all children to get a high quality education. I really struggle. The most is with people who may appear not to care or able to be self reflective and think about what is it in my story that informs my perspective people who might not be curious. I think I think that's the much harder part. Let me know have been able to have political conversation with three friends. I have who I know voted for Mr Trump in two thousand sixteen. They're all bright interesting people and we're friends and I care about them so even though we have political differences but I know they care greatly about the world and so I think I have a hard time maybe with folks who would say like I. I can understand hunting. Although it's not in my value system I get that people do it so the hunters. I know who would say well yes. Of course there's a moment that paints me when I stop a life to feed my family. It's person who might say. Well why would it bother me to go shoot an animal? It's just a thing that's where I'd have trouble when I meet people who might be in quotes politically really progressive but if they sort of sanctify conservative. Republicans are Evangelical Christians or any other group. That's just as offensive. It's like wow how do I make a bridge right because for me? Everybody is my spiritual kin and as we all know who have families we don't necessarily we don't always blackout cousins but they are cousins. And that's how I feel like I. Everybody I'm connected to everybody doesn't everybody. It also means that I the minute I sort of disparage or say dat. That has no word whether it's a tree being or an animal or a human being or the river. Yeah then I'm guilty of what I don't want to be part of which is to to value another being. I'm hoping what I do by being curious. Is I fight reflection if you can move on to your more recent and current work? What are you working on? Why is it important to you? Why do you think it's important to the world for me? It feels like in large measure. My my calling or my life work really is redemption and I define that as freedom from detriment so anything I can do to facilitate or create space or make a container for that to happen for people to be freed from harm detriment. That's the work so the shape that it takes might vary so. Obviously you'll lose to the book that I wrote which for me while I'm proud of it is a piece of some good public literary fiction. It really is as much important to me that as a tool for engagement that it's a meaningful way to engage people in conversation around issues of how we other each other. We make each other other or marginalize each other or our exclusive of one another how we exploit. How harm how we don't see so. That feels like a piece of the work. The focus of my life has been teaching. I certainly think about that as as a kind of activism in the context of teaching first year required course in critical thinking writing research preparing your students to write a research essay where I could pick the content of the course. I've always done that with great deliberateness so when I first started teaching the course I talked about religious pluralism in a global age. I talked about how we learn because I really wanted students to deconstruct their own education and become critical thinkers about how we educate or failed to educate or miss educate students. I taught a section on the downside certainty because I wanted students to really step back and go. There are some downsides to being so sure we're right did a section on consumerism and the story of stuff and how overconsumption is trying to a did of course on forgiveness and reconciliation and restorative justice for several years. So for me that was there was a real intention. Tried to use the platform of a classroom not to inculcate my beliefs but but to absolutely invite and encourage students to think really critically to really dig deeply into their own life and our own story and what informs their beliefs and their thinking so so teaching feels like an area of it. The other peace has been restored of justice. Work restarted practices. And for me. What that's meant is to get some training in encircle practice in particular And to attend national conferences on restorative justice and attend lots of sessions and read is widely as deeply as I can on that so that I do feel like now. I can be an Amer- restorative practices practitioner circle keeping work the way that manifesto on a daily basis. If you said well how in your community would we see evidence of that? I started with two other women diversion an adult diversion program. After I I worked for a couple of years in a local juvenile court diversion program so that also felt to me like it felt like a in a way kind of change maker role because when I stepped into the process there was certainly a a kind of widths of restorative justice that informed it but the juvenile diversion program used panels. You know the kid who'd gotten in trouble sat in an adult. Sit On the other side of the table and no no no. No no circle process restorative justice circle up. You know so I feel like that was a way that I could impart those values and make change in community that way so having done that then I realized there's no adult diversion program for people who've committed fairly minor offenses so a couple of women who had taken an an adult learning in retirement. Course that I taught on restorative justice we got together and started working with the county attorney and the police build a program which we did. We haven't really gotten referrals. But from that the county commissioners so I'm an uninhabitable state and New Hampshire and I in a rural county and we have three commissioners and accounting administrator and they're very interested in restart of justice so we've been meeting now for probably a year and continue to move closer to and now. I think we're meeting actually in another week or so. Ten days to talk about might be some budget available to have some restorative practices at within the context of the criminal justice system. Here the other places. I've approached as many schools as I can. I've had conversations now. I think with five elementary middle school principals one senior high principal. And you don't keep circling back. I wish I could tell you that. Oh boy I've been just consulting with all of them but I've been you know I mean that's the work I do in the world is I go and I say I'm available as a resource was going on in your school. One of the challenges and then I try to be curious and then offer back and say here's some things that might help. I belong to a conversation race in like community like that. I'm I'm starting next week. I'm going to a meeting a new statewide on. It's not really a coalition but it's a statewide initiative on race and equity and they're developing an action plan so hopefully it won't just be more goodhearted people talking a few years ago. Ice Helped start a nonprofit that the goal of which at the time was to create a healing house for women coming out of the local jail. We didn't bring that to fruition because I realized early on that takes a lot of organizational capacity to do that. But what we did end up doing is we created a mentorship program for women as they were coming out of the jail so we ran that we ran. That program in the nonprofit was in existence for about three years and then we sort of disbanded. It just trying to be of use. Where my hands are so I would say it's largely around the idea of redemption. So I've been on quite a few committees or task forces or whatever around behavioral health. It will seem to that sort of advice to their table. So behavioral off substance misuse. And that kind of as an outgrowth of the nonprofit I guess I believe in ground up solutions so from side so I'm always saying to teachers when they'll say well yes. This is nice in theory. We've had twenty five pupils twenty five kids in the classroom in my fourth grade classroom and somebody's acting out and I'm trying to realize that the person is really asking for help and I need to be curious about child's unmet need in that moment but I've got twenty four other kids. What do I do with them and I always say why? Don't you circle them up with the Child? Who's needing some help? Why don't you have the wisdom in the room? They might eat. That does not mean. We're not full of wisdom. They have more bodies they haven't had it all drained out yet and so I think that's the thing I realized about solutions is I. Don't WanNa be the very person on critiquing. I don't WanNa come in and go. I have the solution for you. If you just had a little restarted practice your school run. Better Arbeit for me to say what I can do a. Let me invite you into thinking about this. Let's go back to your own childhood. Let's go back to your own experience. What made you want to become an educator? And what's it like now because most of the people I meet new our teachers administrators. Say Wow is a school. I had this wonderful notion of. I was going to help children and be that wonderful teacher like I had. And Gosh Now. It's a struggle in. It's not like that and we don't have time to do whatever because we we have to teach the test or we have to do whatever and so I i. I WANNA be really thoughtful about solution. And who do they belong to? And I've been reading this book I do just because it goes Supernova conversation. I'm reading this wonderful winners. Take all not the elite charade of changing the world and wanted a writer is focusing on that. He's really talking about the people who consider themselves. He calls up market world but the kind of plutocratic class of people who are trying to change the world. They mean well they're trying to change them they're gonNA solve poverty and education and solve is their word and they love to talk about solving poverty. Lots of money and they can throw at it and what they don't want to talk about is dismantling inequity yes dismantle an equity then the systems that have allowed them to become billionaires. Won't be intact. And so they're not going to critique they're not gonNA have that critique because it would dismantle their lives and their livelihood so when I think about solutions I want to not fall into the camp of well-meaning which people who come in on a white horse. Can I help help you? Listen more carefully for the solutions that you need to come up with career school that belonged to you but the kids have to be at the table..

Because it hasn't been done they think it can't be done is terrible disease part off challengers across but this challenger A. Rated believed that this challenge of Mike projects because I across all challenger so now I tried to change his ways challengers and transformed they weighing. Maury is easier to another people. Have so you're breaking down those walls so other people other housing charges that you had? Yeah Yes yes. So what gave you the strength to to just keep going when people were saying. Oh you're just the female women can't do this or pretty. I think the most spark the most part of the time is mice my motivation and I believe in God yes in. I really strong belief that Helped me part time right in my family's support me a lot -tudents especially my father. Yes my father loves. Hear me talk about stars and planets and this helped me a lot of those very proud. Yeah yes that's wonderful by but my motivation is believed that I can make some difference and especially my country. Yes in change things data. I had fast might best gifts to become anex journal. The Win I okay not. I think I can do a lot of things to them when I went to the yes I I think I can do a lot of things when I become an astronaut. I think we said astronaut We have some power to make the difference and start building a lot of things. Like a lot of technology is night dream to build Technology country yes and I think that is. This is my goal. Yes I goal was to work for the creation. Yes my goal is not only gotree space. Gotree Space Spartan Work we've Show hall yards since is data. Today she lives and change all their world. This is this is what excites me here. In Utah Korea is. Because this is what you're talking about now. Is that difference between being a really great citizen and being a change maker because you could be yourself and be determined and become an astronaut. Go to space and that's awesome but when you start being concerned for the for the wellbeing of the planet your country the you know the world and women. You're you're bringing in that concern for others and that's what makes you change maker. You see what I'm saying is okay just radiates out of you and that is that is so exciting to me. So tell us a little bit about your your play-by-play plan to get from where you are today as a student at Sweet Briar College being an astronaut who changes the world and opens up possibilities for other women in your country is very important to have bland. Because you have to be prepare in. You have to be already for different things so when I decided to become an astronaut Okay now what they need to do so I listen at three astronauts. I have had the opportunity to talk with President Astronaut astronaut Komo's in astronaut. He can America's noise and I read a lot of builders yes from Ezra melts and I might plan is is starved. My undergrad way. Shenice junior and that's Renault need is necessary to have a lot of different courses. Do become a national For example I need to become a pilot. Yes I need to take Cars dive cars. Yes I'm you to learn Russian in fraiche. Oh how is that? Because of language on the International Space to Dash Renault need to fly with Russians rockets. Yes they need to learn Russia and part of the trainees erosion too so is necessary. Hotel idea understanding a lot of engineer so aren spacing January's Course to become Yes in courses like Nassau. I some courses people Sharked courses you have similar experience diverse experience. May I ask you real quickly? What is the diving guideway? You mean under underwater divy AS ALEXA CONNECTION BETWEEN UNDERWATER DIVING. They underwrite dive experience simulation microgravity. Oh so there's that does similar similar minor in space because it's like floating. Oh Yeah I guess. Now that you mentioned see that To do diapers yes. Of course that you help you in a training to declan is really important. So it's important to have master degree and knocked her degree him too so it. I think the important thing is to start our work in these areas at NASA are private space edging to experience and so I applied to China and to the country yes in General People Cultures Different Cultures. How only the language Yes Now is a little too because I I don't speak English really well but I think I don't know what this word in English Relationship yes in to become an astronaut is really too he. You know how to get a good work in group and working in other people and along Communications should be good Jew but I think is really important because sometimes Most of the time people that were a lot of numbers. Yes physics engineered. Don't yell to have a good excuse to talk of their plunder. Sometimes they don't can't Mother people to become an astronaut in all words is very important to know. Hold to a good work in growth. Yes snow working in group people yet. It is the most important part. Yes yeah and I think Curiosity instead of judgment is very important in those situations is to Be Able to be interested in the way other people do things is really important. to to take courses on other country a really good night experience. Because you need to make a other people's other cultures other language does really important Geno. I really would like to travel all the rules. Eight countries acting wouldn't Is experienced that change a life. Yes change it really does to Change Your Life Change Your Perspective. I think yeah so. Have you visited other countries other than the United States? Very fasten quickly. Yeah ooh countries in South America. Yeah when when I went to us. Yes I need to stay so anyway. Disc- laundry yes. Yes so have you run across any challenges anything that you think are hard about transitioning from Brazil to the United States is in easier challenging. I I don't know because Divorcing is prison is really hot yet. Warm yes in it gets worse came in January last year. Have you been here in the summer at all? No censored the summer. Stay for the Gab.

Oh yes meteor was media Risk Bryant and blue sky at M.'s. I was maybe seven or eight years old yes and I thought my God. What is the stunned it and this just noticed it noticed it yourself when pointed out to you and say look at that as I was upside at a look at this guy because I I read love blue sky and I saw Meter yes and the second thing is when Brazilian astronaut the first president astronaut marks boats arrive in the International Space Station. Yes and my father called to me see by the television so I was a child. I was eight years old. Yeah and I saw the first president astronauts arriving international space nationwide television and I thought. Oh my gosh I really want to becoming absolutely yes so I start a may be ten years old. I start a study and bolts about romy at schools that are that are A little kind of folks but I started reading in make notes about his subjects so maybe twelve years so I start made. Observations observe the stars because yes a friend of a family. My family has a framed that made a telescope on her at home to U. S. Certain stars in the mood so I started serving. We've DIS- little tells it up. As long as I decide I really want to become an as yet. You start studying either space science and face the beautiful so it sounds like if a member stating this right that the seed was planted in you because of something in the natural world that excited you and you were interested and then it sounds like your dad also may have encouraged you by inviting you to watch. The Brazilian was part of the International Space Station. Yes and then. If if I'm getting this right you were looking for materials at school and finding those rather limited but it sounds like you were the kind of learner that was sucking up every bit. You could get your hands on in terms of studying. You were finding everything you could to study and learn and take notes on. It's really exciting. I'm training twenty to twelve mile. My father puts an Internet chat home so so the Internet International Caesar Universe Universe Awesome formation. So how old were you then at that time forcing fourteen years old and very motivated young girl? It sounds like yeah Self motivated person. It sounds like yeah I in twenty twelve. I started detergents about this To try to help other students that have their steaming silence based in in. He's trying to study about this subject. So tell me about that that project that you started it sounded like that's related to exposure getting getting more materials and opportunities in the hands of students who like you might have had an interest. So was this something that you initiated on your own by yourself or did you have teachers or other people to encourage you or how did how did that? All evolve that you were involved in getting materials and resources for other students. I sucked by myself personally. Item have professor that motivated me to start the some professors open the school so I can put 'em start my project. Yes they school bug I sung by myself Fourteen years old yet years old fourteen years old. I start new our project yes. Norazam project is focused focuses all the people in the scientific dissemination by Internet or activities that. Kohl's are destroyed so I bring my Dallas Cultures Treats sold a neighborhood can see things like Total eclipse fight Son Things like this run leads. The people love to see plans by itself. So how did you get telescope? Yeah I might a friend of the family one friend building the less call her a little telescope at home in another friend. Both a telescope. Jimmy o-9 have because my father Bobst by dysphasia A very expensive but framed bolt telescope Jimmy night. So I start bringing the telescope is Cole was. Our STREETS ARE SAFE. couture centers Her senses at Sadie. Yes so that people can see the stars by. Let's call exciting. And so so that gift someone gave to you. It's like you multiplied its power by sharing it with other people of you're my passions water. That's really I just love that that that came out of you is such a young age The the hunger to learn that also hunger to share your learning. Yeah it's just beautiful. I think other people need to I thought. Oh my gosh it. People need to see the is so amazing all diss universes so beautiful. See The planets that galaxies day starts so I fought that people need to see why I love it soul Russell and try and Sparta older people to follow the scientist's careers understand why doom versus the universe. Yes and so after that I start my second Zero G Zero G. Yes Chiro G like no gravity. Oh Nice is an has similar. I start disbrow. is focused always at schools trees. Bari Children's Esteem as seeing science technology engineering math. Oh yes Us astronaut meets astronaut astronauts reply. Does I think is yes. This current or yes because the like math in physics pam scientists at schools. But I think I believe that the problem these days students don't have practice. Yes Practices Cleophas. But they students have a big interstate in understand like hard to become an astronaut are why. Saturn on has rings. Big names are of things ideas and math and physics. So why try? Teach the childrens math using astronaut Yes for curiosity Example watching a move on over serving stars by tell us coal or meets rockets by a by a little like this of our visit the airport geds and understand why they fly is physics but it is for really interesting to students students. Lack allots zillions made me. Yes so I will in our at blue roads. We like to really focus on the solutions and it's clear that you are solution. A solution area. Have you heard that term a solution areas like a visionary that creates solutions? And that's you I am curious will always say we want to celebrate solutions instead of praising the problem but sometimes it's interesting to hear Just for the for the benefit of other people if you if you came across any challenges or hurdles in bringing about your program like zero g and the one before that that I don't remember is how do you New Horizons Abacha. He relies it. So did you. Did you let across challenges or hurdles or people that say? Oh no you can't do that across a lot of Jabs so tell us a little bit about that and especially how you overcame the challenges you ran across because anytime there's a visionary like yourself It's natural to to some people to say what girl who do you think you are. You can't you can't do that. Tiny little fourteen year old so tell us about kind of the story of any challenges you had to overcome to across a lot of challenges Yes goes I might others. They older students don't understand me and I'll fraternally Officers also not understand me. In what way do they not understand? They don't understand that it's important. It also are what I always listen questions like why you want to become a national design false volume up. Strange Bang Restaurant Dream Roy. Why you want to go to his base things.

Daniel Jones had a little bump in the road today little bit up and down those things though are to be expected expected as the young man develops no big deal nothing to be alarmed about today at Big Blue View. You'll find stories on Eli Manning hang on what he said. When he met the media on Tuesday morning also a nice story on Dexter Lawrence he also met the media dexter of of course is playing defensive end seventeenth overall pick little bit surprising to some that he's being used as an end and not as a nose tackle that particular the topic is addressed in the story and also some information on how he's doing and how he's developing as a pass rusher speaking of pass rush rush? I also had an opportunity to speak with former Arizona cardinals edge rusher marcus golden who is now with the giants on a one one year prove it deal gold and told me that he is healthy looking forward to the two thousand in nineteen season and still believes that he can return to his two thousand and sixteen twelve and a half sack form now that he's another year removed from the surgery he had in two thousand thousand seventeen for the torn A._C._l.. that he suffered also wanted to mention those of you who listen to the podcast that Dan Poodle and Chris Phlegm have been doing here on Biglou view radio those of you who listen to that already know that that Dan is moving on from big blue view..
