"Kendall from the mock into Rob Show going off the rails. Two people ever call you, Bob. Robert, Right. Robert is your full name I've been I've been called worse than Bob. But I've never actually been called Bob. That's my grand. My late grandfather's name is Robert. And so I'm gonna call you, Bob Kendall. From now you call me whatever you want, because You're number one. And congratulations on 10. Years of the Hammer and Nigel Show a decade of decadence. Much appreciated. Rob is the GOP in Indiana, making it harder for libertarians to get on the ticket to run for governor and Senate? Yes. So first of all, Let me say thanks to our show sponsor garage doors of Indianapolis. And yes, this this house bill that's out there right now. House Bill 11 34. Which was written and put forward by professional Republican Party, she'll water carrier named Ethan Manning is one of the grossest sickest things that I have seen, and that's coming from Rob Kendall. So give me the CliffsNotes version of this because there may be somebody hearing the story for the very first time. What what's going on here? So the way it works in the state of Indiana, is that the Democrats and Republicans are called major parties and the way they judge what type of party you are is How many votes you get in the secretary of state's race that determines ballot access in the state of Indiana, right for your party to be on the ballot, but above 10%, you have primary ballot access. So Republicans and Democrats get above 10% in the secretary of state's race there on the primary, which is a home run at the Give me They're going to be on the ballot, of course. And in the state of Indiana. If you get more than 2%, you have general election ballot access. That means you don't have a primary. But you're on the general election. So the libertarians you'll never see him in a primary. You never go when I want my libertarian Primary party ballot, But you can vote for them in the general election, so the way libertarians nominate candidates is through their convention. Now. This is important because it's the way everyone should do it because it costs the taxpayers $0 the Libertarian nomination because it's a private party club the same way the Republicans and Democrats are cost the taxpayers zero. Republicans and Democrats cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars every single year to operate their private party function. And now this lawmaker that you mentioned earlier is trying to pass some sort of legislation making it even harder to get on the ballot. Republicans and Democrats don't want Anybody but elites and connected people running for public office. So the way they've protected that in the past is they've required if you're running for Senate or governor on the Republican or Democrat ticket. You are required unless you're Todd Young to get 4500 signatures valid signatures across the state of Indiana nine Congressional district 500 signatures in each congressional district. And that is a cost hundreds of thousands of dollars because you have to have a mass operation to pull that off all across the state of Indiana. It's very hard, which is why on Lee Elite connected or in the case of Mike Brown, super rich people run for public office. What this little turd even Manning is trying to do is make it so that the libertarians who don't have primary ballot access net, nominate their candidates at a convention now have to go get these signatures to even nominate someone at the convention. Why is he doing that? Because Donald Rainwater got hundreds of thousands of people to walk away from the Indiana Republican Party in 2000 and 20. They know the next nominee for governor, or U. S. Senate won't attract the Democrats that Holcomb did. They are scared to death. That's what you say. But what is he saying? What is his? His reasoning? I guess we should make it clear you supported rainwater. Well, sure, of course I have some common sense. Well, he says, Now, here's what we're led to believe. And by the way, he did an interview with Abdul Relays all this out, he sounds Like a guy in a hostage video when he was blink twice that you believe this? No, no, no, it's you don't. This is not something a word You heard you play clips earlier. It's not something a low level politicians sits around worried about this is I say, water carrier because somebody in but there's no power told him to do this. This is how it works on the inside and you've been on the inside doors. It's why I walked away from because it's gross, and this is what they do. They go to a young guy like Ethan Manning someone a position of power and to say you wanna You wanna move up, right? You want committee ships? You want to be in leadership someday. Well, we want this bill. We certainly don't have the guts to put it out. Because we're the name people. You take it. You carry it. Now, keep in mind. We got a pandemic. We've got millions of people out of work. We've got thousands of businesses shut down. We've got the unconstitutional mask mandate. We've got all these covert issues. We got education funding. It's a budget session. And this guy claims this is what I've been looking into. For a while. I've really been putting all my energy and focus on making sure that the libertarians have to get 4500 signatures to get on the ballot. Now you wrote a public letter to representative Manning, and you posted it on your social media. For those who didn't get a chance to see it. What was the genesis of that? Well that that it's gross that all these things are going on. That you guys for 10 months have said the Legislature has said Don't worry. You know we're going to fix this executive order thing. I mean, so many people justify they work themselves into a mental pretzel to vote for Eric Holcomb, because they said, odds Fine. Legislature will fix it. When we come back. You can go and vote for him. You ain't got nothing to worry about. Guys. They've named a state snack already, and they haven't done anything about running this governor in this is gross. And everybody should care about this. Whether you voted for rainwater, or you didn't because this is the Indiana Republican Party in action. It's everything I talk about on a daily basis. Instead of addressing why all these people voted for rain water instead of making it right, which they could have already done. They have super majorities in the House and Senate. They choose to try to just Extract the ability to choose someone different. They hate you because you think for yourself, and they want to eliminate that ability. More than one more question here about what's going on with the General Assembly. Are they putting forward something that will stop Eric Holcomb or whoever's in charge doing the executive orders and the shutdowns and the capacity limitations and things like that?.

"Church winning and innovation. And i'm joined here today with daniel yang. He is the director of the institute and my partner in crime in today's topic. We're going to be talking about leadership development and support raising. It's kind of like Michael cheshire said a few years back. He's at a church planners and money to them in the same room. But we've got two guys that are here with us today. They represent reliant. And you're gonna learn a little bit more about this but this is not an infomercial. It's not a. It's not an ad neither to real people. We're gonna talk about real issues the financial barriers in church planning and tell few of our stories along the way But anyways i wanna introduce to you the two guests which cj white and tyler balu and cj. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Yeah thanks yeah so My journey through turkey desire. I went into a trick plan residency. And i started breathing. Support there about six years ago and did residency down in austin stone community church in texas. So that's where. I am in east texas and longview With my wife and kids. So i've watched celli married almost seventeen years and two kids that hard to believe now every time i use them that we almost have a thirteen year old singer so my daughter is almost thirteen. Feels like twenty five and my son He's been old and just love sports and we get after anything With the ball so Yes we're in east texas. We planted out here New city church plants in that about three years ago almost four years ago. new and Yeah so we were been support. Raised all along as we stepped in that process and Race sport reliant. Now excited as i'm now. Step down from the clinton just with reliant leading our program team that we really served her planters in nonprofit ministries that are needed to raise support and mobilize support base missionaries. And just so excited to continue to walk with planters and the train and equip on this piece of support raising. Which is it's interesting. I don't know about you guys but my journey disbarring was pages. Go get a bunch of money until your self sustained in. it'll be okay Instead of a. I think one lawrence going to do a lot more work in my own heart through it and build a foundation of trust him as well as there's so much more he's doing support reagan doling partnership and so. I'm really passionate about this exciting alerts doing through supporting so. That's a little bit about us. Our right tyler does a little. I mean you've got a coup last name you'll let me know this is like balu. Union talk about the bare necessities tells a little bit about yourself. The big big paintings for a. Yeah so of mine tyler. End the houston texas area so yes same state but very different areas. That's tonight live and arisen our family's ah jessica the mary for about six years Which has been awesome. My wife her family immigration from south indian wife was born and raised here. So i've just been so amazed at learning just what that's been like to be a part of that community. In fact we planted a church a few years ago in that community here scenario on and then just recently got moved us through some pretty awesome circumstances of having twin voice now eight months old away from our church plant in ensue. A more service oriented type role serving church planters and pastors in the kingdom. so Get to do that. Through reliant on. Cj team Helping him develop different ways for us to serve planters just like us how we were just in that position at life and i also do some work with us to church plan at work project. Managing different church planters. Who are starting you plants in the city or gospel situation so two beer. We're big big fans of eight. So that's that's a really cool connection. But hey i wanna i wanna start off our time asking a fun question but honestly the real question i wanna ask is between east texas in. Houston i just wanna know how you guys voted last week. But we're not gonna get into. That's a good one who is start. Just start with some some really interesting can actually houston such a great city. And you talking about your. Your wife is south asia. is that right. That's correct yes k. Obviously last week. A lot of south asians and african americans were celebrating the your cj. I mean i joke about east texas but one of my biggest mentors. We've had him on the show bob roberts. He's he's been on the show with tonight and he's from. He's from east texas out in tyler. Actually that tyler. Linda linda on sell. So it's just amazing. See what god's done keep green spent time out there. leonard raven hill. I mean just amazing. Legacy out of east sexist. So it's not the nasdaq of texas as many people. Think but or maybe it is. Maybe it isn't nasiriyah interesting for me. Because i'm from the west coast. I grew up in arizona. Went to college in california and so my wife is from here to. That's what brought me. You got you wanna let you know our viewers know that We we're not just talking with you guys who work for a mission organization but we're all church planners at heart were all involved in church planting and i. I thought it might be a great way to just start. Get to know each other. Get to know you by sharing stories of what are those god moments stories where he showed up in a huge way specifically financially. We're gonna we're gonna dig into what you guys are doing in terms of work and ministry but i just those moments were like if guy didn't show up you don't know if we can do this and every church planner has a story like that. I'll start out painting next and we'll make your way around a cj and tyler. But i remember when i was raising funds back in two thousand seven. Two thousand eight as a planter. And i've made a true about the chicago and i was approaching a passer that i really revere and respected in one model a lot of ministry ministry after him but that morning we'll go in the word and really felt like the lord spoke to me and said don't ask him for funds but pastor the pastor shepherd the shepherd and which was was. It was difficult for me. Because i made. I made the trek from at the time. I was in dallas to chicago to ask for some money right. And but the lord really put on my heart that morning to just shepherd the shepherd pastor the pastor and so we had coffee at a coffee shop nearby building and sure enough i mean he was open with the season of life he was in and he was talking about how he was getting close to quitting and his his ministry really became like a model for me in the way that i wanted to plant at the time in downtown toronto long story shore in the midst of praying for him. I got a phone call my phone rung right in the middle of our time of of ministry in prayer and it was from a an associate in dallas and he said hey. I know that you're on the road. I know that you're probably busy right now. But i just i just won't let you know i just wired twenty thousand dollars and i just wanted to let you know that guy. I never asked for money. I mean. I don't think we even talked about like what what we were doing with this guy but it was. It was in that moment. I remember thinking to myself in that moment. Like this is how things are going to happen. In this south things are going to work. And i was so grateful that that's that was what started my church planning journey because it really taught me how to apply faith early on sale. That that's been my my god moment..

"You have a bad football season. Hell, you have a good one next year. No harm, no foul. We'll put it behind us. You can't afford not to win in what is effectively a war with China. Or Russia. Or Iran. You're not invited the guy over for dinner. I'm not asking him to be nice as a neighbor. I wonder how many people have the emotional maturity? To understand what a president has to do. You have to stare down. Strong men from around the world. You have to stand up to bad guys. You are awakened every day with a briefing. On the threats to our nation. That would leave A normal person. Absolutely positively so full of anxiety you couldn't function. Paralysis by analysis. This is not a job for meek people. And those are just our enemies abroad. Do you understand? The FBI worked their tail off. To steal this election from you. Hillary Clinton's people have worked their tail off to steal this election from you. Bob Robert Mueller worked his tail off, as did a lot of people. Veneman and and the Ukraine hoax The media, The New York These people hate you. They hate you for who you are. They hate you for living in Middle America. They hate you for not going to their university or university at all. They hate you for the strip centers in your town and the franchises and the life you lead and the culture you represent. They despise you. You didn't vote the way they told you to vote. And they hate you for it. And Trump was your choice. And you've got a trump flag and the trump son and a trump cap and you represent Oh, that is evil, and you trigger them. And you know how I know that. Because they hated you before Trump and they'll hate you. After Trump Trump will be gone and they'll still hate You. Never forget that so No, we don't want a week Trump. Mike, you're although Michael Berry, she'll go ahead, sir. Hey, Mike. I was calling about the, uh, hear your comments about the indictment of the McCloskey's yesterday for Ah, Defending their home against riders were armed and he saw the videos in the very beginning they showed in 16 are they are 15 type rifles. Handguns. They were waving towards the macaw skis and on and on and on. You know they were they've been let loose on us by our politicians who have taken away all the police of of of the policing of these people. So what do we do now? Then? What? When? Where do we go from here? We're obviously defenseless. If we defend ourselves or going to jail. Let's plant what? What? What? What? What would you think the plan is? Okay, well, let me answer that question. Let me first say You have to be careful with headline reality. So the headline is they've been indicted. You know, in law school, I had a law school professor who said A good district attorney can indict a ham sandwich? Anybody can be indicted. It's not that hard. That just means does it raise the standard? Do you meet the bar to take it to a trial? That does not mean there. They've been convicted or anything else. It's going to go to a trial. Upon the indictment, the prosecutors are very likely going to say if you'll plead out. We'll let you go. You plead out to this. Pay a $10,000 fine. You'll have plenty of money and we won't take it to trial because the prosecutor doesn't want to lose. And most people will say, Man I don't want these trials are expensive is stressful. I don't want to risk going to prison, so I plead out. That's what usually happens. But if they fight this and take it to trial I don't think you'll get a jury to convict them. The jury system for individuals who protect themselves is incredibly forgiving. Because a jury is truly a jury of your peers. If you are defending yourself. If you are a guy that rapes murders, Berg, ALS carjacks. You don't really get a jury quote unquote of your peers because the other people who do that do not show up for jury duty. The people who show up for jury duty. Are largely older people, retired people, law and order people. When those people are sitting in the jury box, and your lawyer tells the story. Shows the pictures of what all happened, including the gate being broken down. And your behavior is described. And in the midst of all this is all the violence going on in ST Louis at this time. And you walk outside. And you stay close to your house. You do not walk out into the crowd. You do not fire off some rounds above their heads. You and your wife was carrying a little pea shooter. Which all that would have done was pissed somebody off if she shot him with it. I mean that Kenny Rogers had a higher caliber pistol in his boot in the gambler, the little Derringer. So when an audience of your peers He's asked if you're a home. And these people come rolling through your neighborhood. Are you going to stop them? We're supposed to do. Stay inside. Let him burn the place down. He went outside to say if you attacked my home I'm going to have to protect it. So the answer is we don't need to paint. It is a bad district attorney who needs to be voted out. Abad district attorney who indicted them. A grand jury that agreed to indict them. It's going to go to trial on this guy's going to win. It is going to egg on the face of prosecutor So no, we don't. We don't need to change anything. It's unfortunate, but that's why we need to get more involved so that we boot out Prosecutors like this. The world hadn't changed where we've just been reminded why we are going to have to stand up for our rights period..

I've said, you know, he used to dish out a lot of punishment to me of God, you know looking back now at fifty seven year old.

about like what are you talking about a going tomorrow Bruin reconnecting with David soyer French Horn player she was in the US Coast Guard band and in the Hartford symphony so she quit and so shortly after after I met her I won the of people talk a lot of smack about Detroit but I'll tell you this it really gets under your skin in a in a good way at Detroit is very special place and we've talked about moving back at times but we know that we'll we'll be here long we love la too but yeah so that orchestra when when I joined it in two thousand and two it was during they were referring to like a second golden period they talk about the Paul paraders as like the big golden period like the he was sort of George of Detroit and he created this magnificent Orchestra and Detroit symphonies Ben like beset by so many problems over the years and and it's by dint of musicians wanting the quality to stay high that they fought for everything they had and I you at some point that there's GonNa be a work stoppage and Lo and behold there was one Beckham such thousand eleven thousand ten thousand eleven and I hadn't considered anywhere else because I I really loved my job I love the orchestra we loved our house you know special place and Betsy and I are kind of dyed in the wool mid West here's I I maybe Oklahoma City's stretch for Midwest I think that's considered southwest but my mom's from Chicago and I lived in the Mid West quite a bit anyway I'm rambling say way too much to point that out to me I'm GONNA really try not everybody says Thor I've used I've used my mom's in the last just sort of stream of consciousness but before coming out to La Leonard Slatkin had become our music director after me evy and those years with Rv were just the best and I am of course a bias like because Jaffe hired me and very very specially gave me a lot of opportunities I played a lot of concertos with him in them slatkin took over he was also very generous to me so I was assigned to learn the John Williams cello concerto it was going to be recorded for naxos and that was to happen during the season where we went on strike I was going to ask you about this lead you so so that happened and during the strike I was able to sort of spread my wings a little bit and I was kind of a mercenary principal cellist played principal the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra I play principle in Bergen in Norway where we did some recordings and stuff like that and I was a finalist in the concerned about principle audition and that didn't work out but how long was the strike strike with six months six months to the day and so during that point to music festivals series would call me up to to play it's a hands free vailable head so but it looked like we were moving towards a settlement and at that point I was doing okay fine chilly and betsy bless her she is she's the money person she's so much better oh I mean that goes without saying she's she's just the numbers person money burns a hole in my pocket so she grabs it before I can see managed to save a bundle before the strike happened over a period of like six seven years she saved a year salary of my salary something like that she would probably tell you otherwise but she down plays her frequency in that area she is she's fervor good money she was able to buy you a blanket she bought me hello to uh-huh every time we would come close to like the orchestra settling with Betsy and I would say do I go back to just like try to launch myself as a musician and a solo player getting dates all these things were happening and then the the orchestra settled and of course I went back at the beginning the next season because I was all booked up for the rest of the season where they settled and the Williams Concerto was put on the next season and then saw the ad for the delay Philharmonic Cello Principal Cello position and I thought oh I don't know I send my semi application people listening out there if you think that it's nothing but politics and who you know or whatever getting I hate to disappoint you but it's far more routine and mundane and not mysterious you send in your application like everybody else you get invited to audition and then you you know it's all done fair and square so I when I got my invitation letter I collected all my music it's like it seemed like two and a half hours worth like I held in complete I ever really going to drop the needle thing I always say to students if you can play Helen Lehman from beginning to end the anything I mean it's hard so I had the Williams to learn and I had the how you doing recording project now that you're back at work well that still a ways off but I'm famous crammer hate myself into a corner in after everything at the eleventh hour at Bernstein said like to produce something worthwhile you need a plan and not quite enough time yeah I it was like not not even close to enough time so we got to the Williams Concerto and I've been working on it but then I've really started the heavy duty work got through the concerts recording was made out of the life stuff the live broadcast and then I I have a couple of days not to go through the the filler Monica the philharmonic list it was all stuff that I knew except for maybe the John Adams so and I was in really good shape at the time so you know when you're on fire when you're you're you're in fighting shape you're in like Olympic auditioned audition condition which is like the guys make it to the top of Everest it's one thing to make it to base camp until I got to the summit another thing I mean you know what it takes to win or not just you have to be you can't maintain that can't maintain it and I remember after the whole Williams thing was done I was just spent and I was kind of dejected you know like after performing it's like that sometimes you get like kind of let them well I was practicing pulling an all nighter before I came to La for the audition and betsy named check on me in the middle of the night I was like three in the morning I said Betsy Sniping bother getting on the plane flight was in like seven hours interested Robert and betsy if you're listening I want you to hear this said Robert While you're playing I was it's hard to get emotional about it really had huge effect on me which which he said she said I was mentally preparing the garage sale and it was like that her saying that like getting our house ready to move like her you're saying I sounded that good that gave me so much confidence to Harrison because she is sky high standards and so I knew I was doing something right eight so I I got I got to the audition here and stayed at a hotel like far away 'cause I don't like bumping into anybody I know I can't praise and got to the hall all I remember Eliana she brought me to my room I couldn't move my hand by hand was completely I mean it was gone I couldn't even like it was frozen sometimes like if I'm over playing and under practicing and under that makes sense this will cave in and it's like a muscle spasm and can't move I went to Jeff Jeff I can't play I didn't know his name at the point man a- and he said well we do have an opening there was a cancellation for the next day said if you can come back the committee be upset if you had left and they learned that you couldn't play or whatever just you know think about if you don't show up so I was really happy that they had done that for me and I panicked I was like oh Jesus you know this isn't worth it it's like I don't have a shot anyway that's how I felt like going into the auditions and this is valuable because every audition that I've one every audition have done well in I've had the attitude that I need to lose I'm not GonNa win this Rochester Hartford Detroit and la I win in there and I just played as though is playing a concert I had the right mindset the next day yeah so I get this I so I slept like fifteen hours without getting up for as much as a p. break and some city that's the best strategy I just wear yourself out of basically chop your hand off the cleaver let it grow back overnight got I I mm-hmm two-day beard and even take a shower I just put my clothes on by cello out just very gingerly okay all right all right shop at the hall like ten or whatever played three rounds that day Muslims along day and I was on this committee by the way I know I know and our friend Julie was the other finalist who is selected and she's now principal Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and I was like there was a big gap between the time time that we audition and then our trial weeks were like several months away right because it has to be a time when the music directors conducting so okay so I the U. At no y right we were teaching it together it was just a little bit like Cj was there is a little awkward we went out for fun do you remember the uh we had lunch together and then I was with Julie at the Seattle Chamber Music Festival and Julius like super awesome she's super friendly social and I'm I'm sitting there like in the corner kick getting more and more uptight with like every bite of food this festival is wonderful in Seattle where we it'll take our meals together and it's great unless you're meeting your intercession so God you guys would know what you're getting into and and then there was another festival in Maine where I was playing parts Joey Silverstein it was his thing I hear all stars thing I was invited to that way before the La thing happened I was invited as the principle of Detroit and so we got to play all these these chambers says with Joey Silverstein another one of my heroes and and it was like a little awkward you know you're running into committee members Prince bulls competitor and I'm like she's awesome Oh yeah so anyway look we've all in addition it's worked out it's sometimes it's our day sometimes it's not the bottom line is like there are a lot of qualified people for any position and just to say the from my perspective being on the committee you know we had no idea than than you know no real interest in any of these circuits dances that had led up it it's interesting to me now at the time you know all we were doing was okay they bring out the next person they play whereas to you it was like there are so many ups and downs but that's worth remembering that if if you do have strange circumstances around an addition sometimes there's an assumption that somehow that's GONNA show to the committee so you know I don't feel ready or I did this doesn't quite feel right the committee's not GonNa know or care well I was when I had talked to Jeff I said I'm just GonNa fly Home I didn't ask for another time I just I'm GonNa go he said wait I think we have a cancellation and that's when they decided to give it to if it weren't for that candlish would've left and likely still be in Detroit we'd be flying there to interview yeah that's happened before hasn't we'd like a sliding doors mm-hmm I know I know like another you living in Detroit but the but the whole he's Asian and it has hair has basketball like a lot better than say the the confluence of events that have led up to me well in the La Fila decision. I don't think I would have played as well as I did had it not been exactly that way I I don't know it's so much of it has to do with the timing and I thought oh I didn't prepare well enough of this nonsense I've played the stuff so many times and when you're in really good shape you can pretty much play play it all right I think yeah I mean there those those rare times at the top of the game like that I've ever taken Asian rhyme felt like just like I could just go for it and I felt awesome no I think they were all terrible experiences I don't know it it's funny I in my mind I've never really separated how one prepares for a symphony concert versus how prepares for Concerto were my whole life has been sort of governed by like Oh shit enough time because I'm a slap procrastinator and it's not because I'm lazy it's because I think I have whatever excellent there is as a musician of writer's block I mean it's an anxiety that for many years I couldn't get the cello out of the case unless.

pins off after about a week I made you keep an eye on yeah so I was absolutely inept absolutely and up because I I get nervous I'm just you WanNa do it exactly right and it's like the standards that about the yelled out because I confused I didn't know what side by side was and so this was and they had one of them came and says I want chocolate and vanilla side by side and a cup and I said sure and I want I just did the twist and I gave it this is a twist I asked side by side there is the difference in case anyone's wondering are you want to say the word business that's that's heavy so

up again Cherry soda some other stuff and I stick it on the those old fashioned shake machine the blades I hadn't put it the Metal Cup directly in the Plastic Cup put the plastic odd fired on the spot really it was the worst and Best Day of my life tip you went ever all over all the ice cream you know has the sneeze cover for the employees all over that they went all over the grill it went all over the people meet it was it was a typhoon of Dexter kill room imagine with your customers starting now I can think of slow movement of a symphony or something and you just start like there was a there was in my first principal Gig at Hartford was situated rescue came to conduct soms Beethoven four and you'll have a little movement and so this bumble the timpanist got like a half Barra head and the orchestra it just it sounded like okay Beethoven Beethoven Ives was an hundreds stuck his hand put his hands by and this God Kord that was like from like Satan's blowhole it was horrible at it just it ended movement and the audience was I was getting caught with your pants down it was possibly the worst moment onstage wow in an orchestra that I that I have witnessed some pretty awful things happening by the hiatus you took that I think because I I feel like I had a similar well I I didn't know what I was going to do I mean I played I took up guitar and Bass Guitar and writing songs and actually at that point aww became a priest I mean I was like really drifting these Nathan you really never the sorry sorry Nathan you're kind of the opposite I think I mean I think me also I didn't I didn't think I would become a musician anymore where we were earlier today okay because we were talking to someone else who was talking about a kid and saying wow that kid can be anything he wants to be and I was thinking well not that any whatever came out and set it but I think the understanding was wow there's there's one thing you can be a good way to let them but you never lost I mean you you had a reason for us for me it was just like I just didn't like doing it anymore it's coming up right now but I mean you obviously there are like a family reason for you to just for something else do yeah it was like the one thing that I thought gave my life a little bit more meaning and channel connected just music in general I mean I never really left music at all it never left me I just I was a really really good kid growing up until I reached about that age I just got rebellious and school counselors were calling my parents here F- smell marijuana on your son I say that on your podcast that's terrible I don't think there's any legal case that I just go back and prosecute you because of the order yeah so it's funny how I just kind of made my way back but it ended up going going to Eastman and then after Eastman I went to Yale that was about roll more than it was about teacher usually because I might have gone to study with starker at Indiana but I decided to go to so and ended up being a decision anyway so but Yale and then I was just done with school I was sick of being in school and in the in the meantime I had gotten into in tomorrow Shea had sort of reconnected with David Soyer at that point and that was you know you know breathing in that that atmosphere they're getting to play with gala Mir in Schmidt Ryder and my God those people gala Moore played rebels string quartet four rebel I mean that's that's playing bear opus opus three with him he knew every note by heart will head to he could I don't think he could see very well point either I remember joking with him once I mean he didn't joke around with me he was actually quite a job with him he was quite stern quite mean with me and I came in I was the first person to arrive at air conditioning now I don't know metal mount is different but do you guys ever go to bed amount now I know I never did that or encore Nob- practice eh twice as good one I don't know why went because I all I did was to break the rules in sneak into the girls' storm that was it think you have to do that for five hours a day they're put a cassette tape. What if you're practicing going I do this exercise weight or those silence I can't remember he so yet it was really rustic up there when I was there I mean it was super I have a blanket I wrapped myself and my towel give you a Weirdo I just I don't do anything right so bring your own at that time you had to bring those incur- from home and I'll be fine so sound though it's not sad I'm just I'm just idiot so yeah talking about chatterbox I'm so sorry it's a podcast she said here silently would be scared please keep our long it can be a multi parter because I'm worth it doesn't we've been talking about ourselves for thirty episodes a refreshing change gallery story so I walk in place for the beautiful stradivarius diamonds in the hill style pegs instead of the wooden pips on dan rather were like probably one carat diamonds at least shot at well I said Mr Gallagher do you go to cartier to get your violent adjusted he just looks at me like so I think he tried to set me on fire and you probably heard something else I think that that cocky kit okay now and I was also really uncomfortable I didn't know what to say so I think with a lot of the old timers from that hat generation there was a like an invisible wall that you really ought not cross unless invited to do so and even after that Sa- million already yeah yeah sometimes that makes it worse it's like when that's the situation you almost blurt out inappropriate things even more I don't know what to say so you don't want to say the wrong thing and then you just end up spontaneous terrific syndrome he went to Marlborough several summers so it's just there two summers I did I did a brief tour did this thing to New York and DC and then I just at this point that you have a job yes it was right before I got the the Hartford symphony job and I had a small management in New York took interest in me and so I signed with them and I thought that that was going to be good but I I was actually looking after my mom at the same time I brought her to Connecticut with me to live and that's as we all know we all know somebody who's done something like that it's it's hard it's hard to move back home in a way but my mom couldn't walk anymore looking after her and it was really hard so it was either like get a job as a bartender or something or because the phone wasn't ringing off the hook for me to play concerts I mean I I had a big international music competition a few years before that when the Irving Klein competition my friends always called Calvin Klein communist that competition kind of got me gummy going but I don't like well I don't think anybody likes competitions nobody likes editions but I really really have a tremendous amount of anxiety around than I in my mind was what been there done that bought the he should I don't need to do that again one of one that's that's fine that's good enough for me and I probably should have kept going you know butt off must have should have you know you can never but I mean we're you hoping solo concerts yeah that was my I mean I grew up wanting to be a soloist yeah I mean a lot of us are are sort of in that way anyway but you know it's funny right around that time I started adopting a different attitude that you know maybe opportunity will knock in other places so when I got the job in Hartford something's happened you know I got I got a few more solo concert was really when I when I want my position Detroit that door started opening and I conceivable positions that we're talking about yeah I only went after principal position specific because I in Hartford I I realized pretty good at this and the challenges is that are sort of inherent in that position are they came pretty easily to me like leading a cello section dealing with people I think for the most part when I'm of sound mind comes very naturally to me and so I wouldn't say it's easy money or anything but I I liked it and I I was good at it and I I enjoyed it plus that time spent in Hartford I got to learn all the big solos all the big pieces and and it may not have been the Berlin Philharmonic but it was a job in a got got me a lot of experience so I was in that position for about nine years during which time I I met Betsy and she was in the coastguard band trait simply principal cello position and I was there for ten years and I never thought I'd leave we loved it there we got married they're our kids were born there I mean entered fright there are a lot.

Tesla's where you are instead so principal viola was on my other side had the deal was there they did that's something I've never seen before wrong seating number two that's right is that David Sanders like his legal from Chicago symphony grilling wrong seating number four right seating number one I mean shallows on the West put the yeah the outside so so over there I don't care how it sounds yeah that's that's the best reason to sit concert right you don't get all the room you need as long as it's your good side that's right thank you for chatting with us today it's that we've actually your name is up in several of the episodes so no only in the best way and Yeah just I I knew when we started the show I knew that I eventually want to have colleagues from the symphony and that you know here thirty some episodes in and actually you're the first guest from the Phil Oh nice I'm on the on the shelf that's great thirty years you haven't listened to the mall by half listening to all of them enjoying them so much yeah but this is going to be fun got a lot of topics we could get into I know you didn't want to plan it out which is perfect but I figured we could start for those who don't know you already Kinda briefly how you got here you grew up not on one of the coasts had in common with me I grew up in fly over country probably the rest of the red states Homa my dad was in the US army captain in the US army and everywhere might devastation my parents they had a kid so two of my sisters were born in Watertown ORC Fort Drum one of my sisters was born in Wichita near Fort Leavenworth worth BEC- prisoners and near Fort Sill in lot in Oklahoma I actually was born in Oklahoma City so so that's where we ended up I'm the lone oak in the family I mean everybody always asks us like when did you know you wanted to be a violinist than yet I'm still kind of figuring that out but uh-huh how intense was the childhood did you end up going to conservatory that sort of thing well it it it's interesting because my mom's family was she's daughter of Russian immigrants to Chicago and they all played an instrument all six siblings played piano and another instrument and my mom was a cellist who's actually quite a fine she ended up Paul University in studying there and then she quit inexplicably but we get into that another time but my dad used to talk about his add playing my grandpa playing the squeeze box so we put the accordion and it was very rustic so for my dad's side we had the sort of Barn dance where dance type of music and the the French Canadian music from his side and my mom's side was the more buttoned up in cultured side Great Grandfather was a barn fiddler in western Pennsylvania Oh wow yeah there's always there's always one in every family uh-huh co-players so music was kind of a thing in my family for a lot of generations my older sister a she was a very fine cellist and I wanted to be just like I just worshipped my sister I still do so I used to sneak into a practice area and she would let me try to play cello when I was little I remember the very first piece I played the cello was a piece called the Fart song they say that and it was actually a section later on I found music and my sister's stack of music it's from the block prayer so this is a piece of music the central section has passage on the C string really low and she used to sing these made up towards the lyrics to this stuff of the string and I just thought that was the best and so she not only cultivated my higher sense for me basic but also my sense of humor and thinking about starting his sister wrote letters like that nobody's going to be right about me and my sister Marian the Fart Song but anyways that's that's another another story but Mary she was really my first inspiration to play the cello and so I kind of learned from her and I was more interested in baseball so in third grade I was seven eight I think it was eight yep they had there's a wonderful school music program you could choose a string instrument or you could choose of abandoned from an I I actually chose both the cello of course because I already sort of knew how to play and I played trumpet as well very badly and I also play piano so we can't lessons and and all that just like my mom's people so the instructor notice that I had some talent and he got me hooked up with the teacher to whom I owe everything absolutely every thing to her name is Jane Smith one of the finest string teachers in the world as far as I'm concerned I'm actually in the in the middle of writing an article and I'm hoping to pitch it to strings or Strand magazine Impreza of the starters always the closers that get the or a lot of the credit your most of the credit at least in in our business I can't use it kind of a base ball analogy it's like you know the Mario Rivera yeah gets gets the win yeah and you know you see studied with Leonard Rose John darker than Herald you know you see all these designer names but you don't see the ones who started you out and I recently I went to visit her and I brought her hello home with me and she used to lonely that instrument yesterday I was well she I I played I grew up playing on my my mother's Hello my sister my sister played the cello my mother played when she was a child and it was a real beater I mean this this thing was awful and I grew up playing playing on that and and you know despite that I I did well in music competitions and stuff like that and my teacher saw to it that I had a good instrument for the more important things like auditions and played pretty big debut concert when I was really young with Oklahoma City symphony she always use her cello which is a a modern Italian instrument and at that point I was probably eleven twelve years old I was at her house almost every day getting piano lessons getting cello lessons just like a game and she taught me everything and I had no idea that the thorough musical education that I was receiving and at the time but I really look at her as a second mother just to say to I mean even today I mean you can sit down and play piano you compose as well which we Meghan into I'm an amateur both of those things but that would never moore's end to yeah we don't do those things I mean you it could turn over that stone who has the time right I like to do more almost failed piano so I sure can well what I remember when I decided piano was abused when it started to get hard Beethoven Sonata last movie I can't play that no kidding anyway yeah that's it got hard for me when I had to like play two things at the same time I know my my hero I was at eastern music festival and it was he teaching at that time he was at juilliard and before I think before that he was curtis but many years before and he wanted me to come study with him at juilliard or to study at Curtis and then take the train into New York and take lessons with him at juilliard so basically it was arranged that I I had gotten accepted into both schools twelve and it did materialize because my parents were very modest means at that point in their lives and reflecting on their list of my my father was the first person in his entire family to go to college even graduate from High School and then he joined the military and he I think my father really wanted to follow in his footsteps and he he wanted me do do honorable work you know the arts that wasn't That was an honorable that was an honest work you know what I mean so my teacher back in Oklahoma Jane Smith who was a she was a member of the Oakland Symphony and also professor at Central State University she dropped me as a student it was like losing a parent because she was oh fed up with my parents that they wouldn't buy me better cello and be were so myopic I don't know if that's the right word but everything works out and the Jews are stand appoint what was happening in why or did you just think she didn't like you anymore I understood means she she had to have her own and I was I was a burden I ended up taking lessons with his wonderful teacher in Tulsa named Cari Caldwell she's principal Tulsa Philharmonic who had it kind of thought that maybe you could go to eastman some great cello school and shortly after after studying with her pretty much quit the cello I just not be as of Cari but because I was fed up with my parents fed up that you know sort of my dream was squashed by other dream is being a catcher for a major league baseball team but I know I don't have enough talent as an athlete so I stopped I stopped playing the Cello I hung out with my friends I did rotten things of the terrible kid terrible get acted out and and on New Year's managed to do well in school I somehow graduated taught my class and all that but my good and who is now a cop in Oklahoma City and Brian he said to me if you don't go to music school I'm going to kill you I just want to go to overland State University the hunting I know it sounds like it's right I think it's actually the end of April heading this does sound a little what's up I entered one of these regional like multi-state music competitions it was pretty well known in the area in Wichita Wichita State University and ahead played cello in several years at least two and a half three years practice like mad I won the competition one like five grand and one of the judges of the competition was a voice teacher at Eastman Thomas Paul and he was really pitching Eastman and I had remembered Cari had study with Ron Leonard my predecessor here the he was a professor at Eastman for many years before coming out here and so that name just sort of stuck with me and I decided to only play Eastman and I went to Dallas for the regional audition I did I couldn't afford a plane ticket to go at that point my parents were ill my father was dying of cancer my mom my mom had a stroke so it was it was a difficult situation as I went to Eastman expecting like you know be put in remedial this and remedial that but like I tested out of all the things will share theory most of us in the orchestra Yep I guess the only ninety percent of his perfect pitch so I'm imagining you guys should do a poll yeah let's go next podcast around two members of the orchestra not to have perfect pitch kind of like you don't need perfect new disciplines are relative pitch in imperfect pitcher to completely different disciplines I think I mean relative pitches you know the ability to say inflexible you can have very well developed sense of perfect pitch in and zero relative I know plenty of crummy musicians perfect it's the musicians that have perfect pulse that I'm jealous of I can't pick a poll I know we shouldn't have sweating bullets and I have to set the tempo I'm always thinking Washington Post March go back or forward from marking the about one twenty story about that now this okay so I worked at a veterinary clinic around the same time invest being paid under the table to clean cages aw execrable experienced the worst one of the worst experiences I had other than growing up Catholic and it's called bronze but it's it's nice game starts here did you but I'm sure that you didn't have the same experience for two weeks clean out animal cages why did they did put me on latrine duty I was pretty far down the food chain there it Oklahoma it's like one hundred ten degrees like every day in the summertime and the line the line was at just zigzag out the door you're standing at TSA there's there's no TSA pre for ice cream lines so okay so everybody had to wear white button-down shirt short sleeved shirt starched brown apron and the new the new employees were this big green end said hi I'm a new crew member.

I am dexter Avenue you've been doing you've been the real journalism which is not always very common today and it has to do with the gist shocking there is no more apt would then the shocking stories coming out of Montgomery County Maryland for those of all this is a we are national show we are broadcasting to Los Angeles to New York all over the country right now could you share with our listeners on America first what are what are the stories that you're covering in Montgomery County that the Americans should know about. yes Montgomery County has around one point one million residents it's directly north of Washington DC the national institutes of health the FDA other government organizations have their bases in Montgomery County historically and and county with wonderful schools and and really who suburban area that people wanted to raise a family band and in July the current county executive he's respectively the mayor of the county. an executive order in place and there were a number of new policies that the executive order ushered in a month and no county employees can now ask about want immigration status another policy I don't know if that nobody who works from Montgomery County conozca. whether you are a librarian gal or a police officer nobody at all age and if you do you could you will be disciplined you could be terminated for doing so the other major policy that we've reported on is that ice agents are now banned from accessing secure portions of the county jails and so under previous administrations if I issue detainer for some a let's just say that I was in the country legally and arrested on local charges of armed robbery the local jail would allow life to come in and and do what they call it a secure our house the transfer where a person obviously doesn't have weapons on that is hand caught now under this new policy ice agents are banned from the secure portion they have to wait in the lobby or in the parking lot that person to walk out and then apprehend them I if they miss them walking out they have to go look for their their home or workplace in trying to get them there and and that really upset a number of people with a local law enforcement the prosecutor's office the sheriff's office police department and so but it's not it's not draw so we would come to Kevin Lewis of ABC seven open WJLA with this isn't Joss about these sighing tree city same tree call it county policies the fact is and you've been doggedly covering this since July there have been eight illegal aliens charge in Montgomery County with sexual crimes in many cases involving children I mean this is the real story isn't Kevin. I I I think it is because of that policy that I was just describing I started to receive a number of tips from people on the inside that cell the public needs to know in their words what was really going on in their community and so I started getting tips Hey look into John this case number one two three four there's there's more of a story here and so I've I've just been reporting one case that you know after another one case involves two men opened documented immigrants in the country that are alleged to have raped an eleven year old girl there's a fifteen year old victim there's a sixteen year old victim there are is a a woman who was in her twenties she was returning home from work and as she was entering her apartment building a an intoxicated undocumented immigrant allegedly tackled her onto the ground and and raped her AT I've been reporting now for ten years it's one of the most horrific statement of charges I've ever read and and it's all caught on apartment surveillance video this with random stranger on stranger attack and it certainly getting the attention of that many people in the county what why. Montgomery County Kevin what's different what the eight eight arrests eight charges against illegal aliens with sex crimes involving children since July what's different. I don't know if there is something different I would. I don't think there's something in the water and Montgomery County I think that. that this is probably taking place in other communities across America maybe what you're just being here is a ground swell of law enforcement that just spelled. this place had pushed it one step too far by banning ice and now there's there's no one thing leads to another I haven't I reported in Indiana and I've reported in Missouri and I've reported here so I can't speculate as to how things are in Los Angeles and Chicago but I would be surprised if it is unique among. also the response we saw I think it was this recall last week Montgomery County make an official statement where they are blaming the media and the White House for distortions of what is happening but as of yet you know as a bipartisan as a as a an independent journalist what is the relationship of that statement from Montgomery County to the truth Kevin Lewis. well he he the the relationship between hi and the White House and Montgomery County it's it's certainly they're not going to be sending each other Christmas cards this year there's no doubt about that I did five each other you know Ken Cuccinelli has has offered up to mark L. which the county executive in Montgomery County I debate talk tackle thanks where it county policy programeri county wall they were not thank you very county we in extreme situations will cooperate with I think and that adds another interesting component here where for the last seven weeks now we have been trying.

"We're here Bob Robert answered questions taking place we start off with a scammer who called mark and Doug said he won two million dollars or two point five or whatever from Donald Trump and a truck what did he explain that Donald Trump is giving away money yeah everybody yeah he like people that pays his bills on time like myself and it was a reward so anyway we knew it was a scam obviously mark played like a fiddle in the office yesterday and said he had to call back today and take my mom's car what our lights all of a sudden going to notice that anyway so our lights went out so anyway I he said that he he was going to call back he called an eight or nine times over the night had a password city we have a password we have to use bright day and then he just for two hundred fifty Bucks he had to pay up front to get his money so we played along then got him on the radio he did know was on the radio and we we played him can you believe how stupid he was he said first I played the part of the Walmart clerk god because you had to go to Walmart to do the wire and I played the part of the clerk and the security guard and the security guard and then he said he was leaving that Walmart because he was upset with them and that guy said good good good many call the spiritual adviser reverent Tom and then I got in on it and said that you know I was going to help them because mark was kind of slow and I would help them you played an array of characters and he never picked up on it now well I'm pretty good anyway we then called in the church choir and said that dumb we were so happy that we ask the choir to come up could take to shop at Walmart in the parking lot because we were singing praise of thanksgiving I think we could have played a car crash thing and they would have believed we're in a car crash this guy was just to myopic I mean he was just for the money and two hundred fifty this guy's working hard for two fifty stuck to the script I bet we could have played gunfire in the background and had a shoot out and the guy was still telling you don't run to Walmart just which we can get more scammers to scam muscle people if you get a scammer tell you got a call back and then what really we'll do it we'll do it live in will work you in okay you come here we can do it by phone or I can take over for you of your mail or we can have somebody take over your female you can say or I can say I'm calling for her and I'm so excited whatever we can do it okay anyway you gotta listen I don't normally say this but you have to listen to the podcast the first forty five minutes now what I'm gonna do is in addition to that podcast I'm going to take the segments and clean it up meaning you know just condense it for you and put it on all of my social media prefer now that podcast when is that usually posted drew do you know right after the show okay so anyway that's cool it but that one another guy called in about a car a motorcycle I'm sorry motorcycle the selling and talked about pay pal scams and I guess PayPal's becoming a vehicle for scams just like Western Union and he has a comment on PayPal go ahead and the welcome what's happening yeah listen in and I dealt with one of these guys just the other day and what the scam was because I've always known great because the real safe way to do business from other states but I got a email from somebody or text it was from that area number and then they go into a paragraph long deal on why they need to do some a certain way and you can tell it's broken English not their first language like trying to add the hint of scammer first but they said pay pal and I'm used to the cashier's checks yeah and I wanted to follow along and see how the so what happened was what they do is they tell you that they want to a PayPal account then they get your PayPal account number and then they have that then they get your email address and then they email you an official looking pay pal emails saying that the balance of the money they told you they paid is in your PayPal can yeah which PayPal doesn't did you did what did you do I just followed along until I figured out what the scam with I didn't do anything with that in give mommy so they never log in and look at what's actually there you have you actually log in your PayPal account it'll show nothing and then they'll start threatening to call the FBI because they'll don't train cancel the deal they'll be like oh it fell through I can't get there so you need to send me my money back and daily they're trying to get you to pay pal them back or send a wire transfer well I never got actually pay pal the dangers is just you believe they are fake email Hey if you use a credit card to find your pay pal and then you you cancel that credit card and say Hey was stolen just pay pal take the money back as well do you guys know I don't know what he is ready to ask in March I'm saying if I use my credit card to fund my PayPal account then I cancel right then I call up now here's how it works so now we we had that happen here's the deal and this is why PayPal has become an instrument of corruption because if you pay pay pal with your credit card you have gotten what you contracted for that is five hundred dollars from your credit card went to your PayPal account and it showed up now if your ripped off using your PayPal account van it's not considered a credit card transaction where your ripped off where you were ripped off is in pay pal know what I'm saying though take that same scenario can't contested then I call of visa and say Hey my car got stolen I never used it for pay pal so they give me my five hundred it is you pay pal yank it out of my account well first and foremost you have to lie about vote fraud of course but so what I wonder if that's where this whole car thing comes from no no no I mean if you if you lie and say I never put that money in pay pal it should have been there and then a day I think they would say well what do you mean yeah that's what I'm saying but if I use that five hundred to buy something from you and transferred it to your PayPal account that I contested my original five hundred dollars did they pull it out of your account is what I'm trying to figure out no old they don't because I well hold on if there's a pay pal dispute a normal answered that guys calling back I just want to hear what he says put it on speaker that guys call actually going I got in trouble what kind of trouble you lied to me you said I get a prize and they told me in no no price I told you not to go about writing your bad and you went about bragging okay but now everybody tells me I don't give a price sure you can get your right if you're still interested you can get your price Sir but you have me and cooperate with me Sir so you can repeat I'm going to call my friend again he said that you hung up on him start calling again he he he said he'd help me help you Sir are you don't.
