S2E8: 30 Years Gone

"We are living in complicated times. I'm seventy rule. MSNBC ANCHOR NBC News Correspondent and in my new podcast modern rules. I'm going to be spending time unpacking packing. Some of the hairiest of today's top decided. I was going to be a survivor. Survivor fights back aboard. They want new. It's America listening subscribe to my new podcast modern rules on apple podcast the iheartradio APP or wherever you get your podcast now as I go through the case file one last time the re moments stand out to me. It's September eleventh nineteen eighty nine two days after Janey Ward died. It's around noon at the junction liquor store and big Flat Arkansas a pickup truck pulls into the parking lot Garrett on the driver and he's hauling two kegs off the back of the truck he comes inside says that one of the kegs untapped and he wants a refund refund. His request is denied the keg has several days old and it hadn't been on ice carried on asks again more aggressively this time uh he is refused again he hadn't even brought one of the keg taps back. Gary Don gives up he slams the door of his truck annoyed that he couldn't get the money back. It's April two thousand seven and investigators are asking I'm Cheri. Passengers Ron Roses truck about the night Janey died and what she thinks happened. No one of the unique anything he had now did find her. There was no more that daily someone else live since you know. Although there have always done so that's like I believe that anything after all these years insult even saying the reading rumored among the kids now the on one of ever mega allegations of having parents and does not the there's no way they some bad had happened it would have not I even hear things that teachers never seen these outside later that same day investigators interview Cam. She says that September ninth nineteen eighty nine was the worst day of her life life. It's been thirty years and we still don't know how Janey Ward died. I'm Katherine towns in in this. Is Helen Gone Yeah. The Janus third autopsy was filled with observers. There was a representative for the Word Family Forensic anthropologists an ABC had their FBI consultant Brad Garrett in the room Brad worked at the FBI for years he worked on tons of high profile cases because of this he got the nickname Dr Death when he first started looking into Johnny's case even before the third autopsy he didn't think anything pointing to a homicide well. It was really unclear to me not based on the initial evidence that I looked at you know and I will say that it it it. It struck me that the Arkansas state police really did a great job job of trying to figure out what really happened this cabin and I started getting the flavor of and I told ABC This early on was was. I'm not sure this is a homicide. It could be but it it it's not in my mind not at least at that point going together as as sort of a clear cutter up a homicide that it really could be something else. Is there anything specific that you remember about this case in terms of the is it more challenging than cases like it as similar. What makes it different? The important thing with the public to understand is that people form opinions pins about what happens in cases obviously families God bless them form their own opinions because it's very difficult in let let me tell you I've worked on a number of child deaths. It's very difficult for parents to accept that their child in effect either died by accident or by their own hand okay so I'm not suggesting that all this viral hand but the point being there's like an opinion formed and then the parents in a very rural county now are promoting that this was a homicide. They're not really GONNA be interested in anything but an outcome that says that and you may you said something in the program about talking to the kids and you said it'd be hard to have a conspiracy if there were something like twenty people with similar story yeah I mean I find most experiences laughable because you know I I used to hear these constantly that you know the FBI colluded to cover up. You can't get to agents to to let alone to get an entire system to and what would be the motive of doing that. I realized that there was you know Y- AH controversy. If that's the right word with a local judge the local judges daughter and you know allegations made with really nothing factually supported of course course many of his suspicions that brought up in the news articles about Janey and on the Justice Virginia forums have answers but these are still questions to get brought up constantly and rumors continue and Marshall Across Arkansas and is Jamie's case continued to get traction across the nation. You know anytime you have have I suppose public exposure of a case that that draws particular conclusions or you know for example so when you look at the second autopsy which you know Sorta reinforced the wards believe got our is murdered. You know you then you know sort of get an emotional reaction from the community as to you know well. Maybe that's what happened. You know whether it's really true we were not but you know we're all I think suspect or vulnerable to the stories of others in driving our own narrative I mean that's the problem problem today and trying to figure out what's actually true in certain people speak as to just accept it or question as well. That doesn't make any sense. It's probably not true and so you know people particularly folks. I average everyday citizens. They don't really know I mean from the standpoint of what is what does it take. It's actually prove these cases. Is there really any evidence to support one side or the other other than this sort of idle chat about it or what what's media outlet might say about it. I will tell you because I've worked so many high profile cases that I I just sort of ignore all that because you know the facts are the facts and wherever they drive these now you know sadly the fact still it always because maybe even the lack of facts or evidence you know they draw you to not a really solid would conclusion when I talked to the ward's lawyer Jerry sailings. He didn't think the I investigation was done very well but Brad Garrett that said he thought the Arkansas State police did a pretty thorough job investigating what happened particularly because it was all happening in such small town I know the little surprised the witness understatement seemed really short and also they didn't. I was surprised that they weren't separated in question night in a more thorough away right because I found out that made it difficult later right so investigative protocol is supposed to be the template of how you investigate a case separate witnesses witnesses sort of locked down the scene and basically you don't let anybody leave or you make sure you've got the names of all the people that were there which in a place like Marshall Arkansas shouldn't be that difficult but you you still have to understand that. I doubt if they were thinking that way. Let's face it a deputy sheriff in that county. I'm sure doesn't make much money that obviously affects the quality of person you're going to get and again. It's nothing against the people who were there. Did it's just that it's it's going to be hard to get somebody that really has a lot of experience or super qualified to work in a super rural county unless they've got there's some passion about living there on Jane's death certificate both the manner and the cause of death are still undetermined but because it's not definitive. Can we say that the wards completely wrong in their perception of what happened that their daughter was murdered and can anything we find support what the family believes leaves. You're not GonNa make any family feel better unless it sits the fact pattern as as to how they want it to be and so I could anything else be done in this case to support the families fact pattern and I don't I think there is because I don't think there's evidence to support that you know like that. One totally unreliable witness claimed that she was struck with a board or VAT or a club and she went down first of all there is no evidence. There was no forensic evidence on her body to support fort that but again. There's nothing to suggest that any of that occurred so I I you know I've walked away from a number of families basically telling literally everything I could tell them about a case that was appropriate to tell them and you know they're just not happy with what I'm saying and I fully accept that say I totally understand too. I can only be driven by the fax it's my own experience with the forensics. Tell me and I have to go with that so you know I'm open to if you or somebody else could tell me that contradicts with the sort of general conclusion is about this particular case great but nobody has ever come up with that because I just I just don't think it exists now. I will say one thing about that. You know every case is like a pie. Investigators have part of it. The prosecutor obviously has a huge part of it the medical examiner the medical professionals for instance their politics etc have a part of it but you have to take each one of them in perspective you know and what if you put them altogether than what you have you know with all the failings and biases hi us in pinions and so forth but what do you have at the at the end of all that of that pie going together and you know and so I say that in that when you take the first or second autopsy okay they found extra. Why fine is there anything beyond with the medical examiner says let's face okay so that's a clinical nomination of body? That's all the facts and circumstances that cops detectives prosecutors are finding through evidence collected through interviews with people at the C. People who saw her fall people who thought she was joking people who poured beer on earth that case all of these things you know the medical examiner supposed to stick to his or her lane this is what I found in the autopsy and great and then you go from there so what you have in this case is a third autopsy by sort of a seasoned professional forensic anthropologists to tell you the fact pattern that she was beaten to death with something is not there. We'll be right back. We are living in complicated times. I'm seventy rule. MSNBC ANCHOR NBC News Correspondent and in my new podcast modern modern rules. I'm going to be spending time unpacking some of the hairiest of today's top. I decided I was going to be a survivor. Survivor fights back. He will board they canoes. It's America listen and subscribe to my new podcast modern rules on apple podcast the iheartradio APP or wherever you get your podcast we've been able to answer some questions about the circumstances surrounding Johnny's death our producer Gabby and I sorted through for what we know what we don't know and at this point what we can't now one of the things that the family thought was suspicious was the fact that Johnny's Dad add Ron Ward said that he had seen Janey in a different shirt when he saw at the more the night that she died versus what he saw in some photos investigator Bill Beach had showed him a couple of weeks later we did look into the shirt and we did figure out some things about the shirt so what were some of those things thanks will we figured out first of all that she janey stayed the night before the party with her friend Leslie and according to Leslie Janey board that shirt from her and so she she was wearing both multiple witnesses said they saw her wearing the black T. shirt over the white pin stripe shirt because does including ambulance attendants who were trying to revive her at the scene they specifically remembered rolling the sleeves up and pulling up the bottom the shirt exposer her stomach and rolling up the sleeves to to expose her arms at some point someone must have removed the white pinstripe shirt and what happened to that item of clothing is a mystery because we know that it was lost by law enforcement at some point and that's just another one of the tragedies case because one of the biggest questions at the family had was why how she got all that debris under her clothes and what exactly that was and of course you know now with forensic testing who knows what could be accomplished but they lost the evidence. It's okay so one of the big questions that journalists Mike masterson brings up in his column is this idea of ninety missing minutes and he brings it up because there is a police dispatcher named Harold Young who said that the truck in the route from the party to the bank parking lot did stop at the police station so what what have we been able to figure out about this. It's very confusing. I think the ninety missing minutes is like a classic example of something that was it was put out there and it's not necessarily correct because first of all a lot of the the early reports I saw that the time of sunset was wrong. It was it was it was described as being around six thirty when in fact it was around seven thirty and everyone at the party basically said that they said when people when things started happening when things started to go wrong when all hell broke loose it was around dusk which would have been around seven thirty thirty nine six thirty and herald young made that statement but he also said that he called the ambulance service and the two people from the ambulance service purpose who were interviewed by the police posts. They never received that call so they're discrepancies in Herald the statement and Ron Kim and Sherri. You were all in the truck they they all tell police that they never stopped anywhere so they are all their statements match now. Could three people have concocted story. Possibly I mean but their statements do match and Herald Young. It's an outlier he really is the outlier in that and unfortunately we'll never know for sure because he's now he's not with us anymore. Herald young passed away. I think another thing that we found that was really important is that there may have been missing time but I don't believe it was ninety minutes. It wasn't ours you know. It may have been half an hour or longer but it wasn't it it you know it doesn't seem that it was an hour and a half. I think I do think that six thirty time probably could not have been right just based on what what everyone at the party Everyone else at the party said they saw okay so another one of the big rumors is that she was hit in the face with a baseball bat in killed at party already. by another Marshall High School student people would often day was Sarah who was a popular cheerleader who came from prominent family in the town on her dad was the judge but it seems investigation that there's very little evidence that supports that theory at all. We've really looked into this theory theory and the possibility this could have happened but we just can't find any evidence to point to it. I mean there are a lot of rumors about you. Know something that happened at the party but again when you go back and look at them you look at the statements you find the people it turns out that Oh it's just something I heard and usually they didn't even hear it secondhand. Usually it's third or fourth hand and you you know where there's was there some truth to it. Yes I mean Sarah I think because she was a she was a judge's daughter because she did have a temper. She'd admittedly assaulted a couple all other girls and she got in a fight with the boyfriend slapped him in the face. I mean there's there's she had a temper and also she told the police she lied to the police about who she'd come to the Party party with and there are inconsistencies in her story so I can see where that that all taken together could lead people to conclude. She had something to do with it and also a lot of people you know they. I just didn't like her. They didn't like her that unlike our attitude and that led them to believe that she could have had some role in this but again like none of the forensic evidence points to that not one person that the party said they saw anything like that the one witness that we did find who said she saw Janis struck with a baseball bat. We've talked about how problematic her testimony is. She's she's had a couple of different stories and again. If she was struck with a baseball bat you would see much more catastrophic injuries to her face. When I talked to the neurosurgeon the first autopsy one of the biggest tragedy was such a simple mistake something that should have been corrected really early? Fahmi Malik referred to the injury is a hyperextension in injury rather than hype reflection injury which you know they're two completely different things then you have all this confusion about whether her her head snap forward or backward and that led lead to you know the rumors that she was hit in the face with something which would have snapped her head backward and that led to you know who could have been and the doctor Manella topsy so I just think you can just really see how one little simple thing can just have this catastrophic effect on an investigation if it's not caught early and not dealt with so throughout this case a lot of what we've seen is the wards will say one thing and then other people will say something else like you know. They said they saw a clear fracture in the x Ray when they visited visited the crime lab but then in the xrays out they got tend to them a few weeks later showed the spine blocked out also. They said that they received death threats. There's sort of some of these these sorts of things that it doesn't. There's doesn't seem to be any way to to prove one way or another because it is what they saw versus what other people heard and saw yeah. I think that there are some things that we it's it's very difficult to prove one way or the other like for example we can never know what Ron actually saw when he saw Johnny's body he described it but obviously we can't. I know that we weren't there and we also can't no you know when when Ron Mona saw the x rays and they say that the x Rays I saw later were different. We really have no no way of knowing that either but we can say is that they definitely felt that the system was not working and they felt people weren't helping them and they felt all the people in power were being treated differently and they also were afraid and they were so afraid that they moved and they put their other daughter in a different school and said they were getting death threats. So there was definitely they seem to feel that there was an atmosphere of fear in the town. When we talked to Richard Walter from the V. Doc Society he described a similar environment arment in Marshall and a lot of other people did to several reporters said that people weren't cooperative and weren't helping and and then there was another journalist we talked to WHO said they received death threats to so it's only it's a few people's word by we can't get inside their head and other experience? We can only report what they said to us. One of the most frustrating things we can't know is James Full Toxicology Report some listeners brought up this from the beginning could Cheney had been poisoned by accident at the party the host Jay made PGA that's pure grain alcohol punch and in it he put orange slices that had been soaked night and rubbing alcohol. Here's his interview with Bill. We'll beat again describing the punch there some discussion about the fruit they will put in any special preparation Josh Huggins of fruit for over twenty four hours from now on what was a higher content Paolo very little alcohol or no drugs were found. I'm Jamie System. Her blood alcohol level was point zero five. That's about one drink but that's ethyl alcohol. Rubbing alcohol is is is appropriate alcohol and in the first autopsy Dr Malik didn't test for it. One of the pathologists who reviewed Dr Mouse work in Nineteen ninety-two you pointed out that the toxicology screens were limited to cannabis ethyl alcohol drugs and lead rubbing alcohol poisoning is rare but but it can be fatal according to the National Library of Medicines Hazardous Substances Data Bank. It's a cute potency as a central nervous depressant is about twice that of ethanol in all eight ounces of the lethal dose but as little as one hundred milliliters just over three ounces can be fatal so I had had our producers gabbing and Taylor do an experiment. We wanted to see how much fruit Janey would have had to consume to ingest eight ounces of rubbing alcohol so they follow Jay's recipe and soak the fruit for twenty four hours. Okay so basically what we've done. is we have three different oranges. We have an orange. That's Kinda pieces of four we have eight pieces uses smaller pieces and then we also have one that's peeled with these three oranges cut into different quantities. Were trying to see if it's possible for one orange to absorb enough rubbing alcohol to be fatal. Basically Kim oranges absorb a lethal dosage of rubbing alcohol. That's that's a lot of alcohol and not very much orange. It's been twenty four hours and we take a look at what happened doesn't look look like that. Much of the rubbing alcohol is actually absorbed in them and that was in our differen- control environments and it looks like only about three yeah about three announces was probably absorbed by the fruit pieces we determine that to get to the lethal amount of eight ounces janey would have had to eat around three oranges. That's not impossible to imagine but that's a lot of mortgages especially considering the fact that they smelled so strongly rubbing alcohol but with one hundred hundred milliliters she would only have to consume about one orange in several witness statements partygoers mentioned the Janey was chewing on the pieces of fruit in fact Ron rose specifically said she ate a cup of fruit the he said she may have thought that this would be weaker than just drinking the punch and in a police report investigator Bill Beeps said that when he went up to the cabin that night he found orange peels on either side of Janey had fallen an though the orange peels were bagged and logged into evidence they were never tested in that first autopsy. Dr Malik said that Janey they had ten ounces of digested food matter in her stomach so Janey was drinking and consuming the fruit on a relatively empty stomach he wrote note though that in the stomach tomato particles are encountered. No oranges are noted. We reached back out to Dr Grace Dukes the pathologist this who had reviewed the three autopsies for us in the last episode first off we wanted to know if Dr Malik could tell the difference between tomatoes and orange particles no what else mentioned tomatoes or food of any kind of the Party and since Dr Malik only did a visual inspection of the food particles could he actually tell the difference between tomatoes rose and oranges that had been soaked the red pg punch sometimes you can tell exactly what is sometimes you can't tell it all but if she you know we're not chewing well. It'd be fairly obvious yes what was in there especially if it were mixed with just liquid where where it could separate out easily if he says that he saw pieces of tomato I would imagine that that would mean something fairly specific to tomato like this either a large piece of food in terms of the oranges. It's kind of like if you were to again people. We'll just kind of like if you were to put food in a blender blended up a little bit. If you only blended up a little you could definitely still tell that they were orange pieces. You know it how how has that kind of fibrous look but if it were if it were to beyond recognition or it spent a lot of time in her stomach you would potentially not be able to tell that so the answer is maybe maybe not but people frequently will report which type of food items they've seen in the stomach contents. Dr Dukes described some of the effects of ingesting rubbing alcohol the thing with rubbing alcohol being I said Purple Alcohol rather than ethanol which is what we think of as you know. Drinking alcoholic beverages would be ethanol poeple alcohol the effects six of that would essentially be the same as as ethyl alcohol there would be the same sort of in a in an inebriated person you know impaired balance slurred speech things like that. The difference is that with ISOPROPYL. You'RE GONNA have more of an intoxicating effect than with ethanol so really the effects you see would not be different. They just might be more pronounced in someone who's ingested ISOPROPYL. The level of alcohol that is fatal in a person varies quite a bit there are some limits that have been set previously as sort of the norm as in this is a lethal level on this is not but that it can vary according to tolerance most teenagers haven't had enough time to build up their tolerance but it can certainly vary said really the answer is that there's no specific limit with this in mind Janey could have had even less than eight ounces and had enough in her system to make her sick her mom mom Mona and people who knew her said that Janey wasn't much of a drinker so she most likely had a low tolerance. ISOPROPYL alcohol has a a lot of the same symptoms as being drunk drowsiness slurred speech stumbling headache and vomiting. If someone is over intoxicated their heartbeat slows down their breathing becomes more rapid blood pressure drops they may have seizures or collapse. They may experience agreeance pulmonary swelling or inflammation of an excess fluid in the lungs. This can make breathing difficult and cause oxygen deprivation if not treated in time time it can cause cardiovascular collapse and death. The body rapidly absorbs ISOPROPYL alcohol symptoms are at their height from thirty minutes to two two hours after consumption. The bottom line is isopropyl alcohol hits fast and hard Dr Malik noted in his autopsy see that there was intense congestion Jane's lungs and in her liver. I wondered if this could be a symptom of alcohol poisoning so those those autopsy findings are are not specific to an alcohol poisoning and when you say alcohol poisoning that just duchess means over over intoxication right to the appointed it's toxic to your body but there aren't gonna be necessarily specific findings associated with it it's essentially a US has a CNS depressant effect and then if one word I keep consuming consuming and consuming than it would potentially cause the general generalized sort of organ failure but it's primarily based in the CNS depressant effect to meeting you know depressed sensorium which would eventually contribute to decrease breathing which would potentially progress to death based on what Dr Duk-sang just like. We've seen before a four so many Janey symptoms are not specific to a particular cause of death but rubbing alcohol poisoning is possible yes so it if it were president a high enough level. It would certainly be a potential cause of death. The issue is just that we don't have a level reported if it were President all Dr Duke said that if it were to the point of being lethal janey would have been visibly intoxicated in the witness statements. Only a few people mentioned the Janey seemed drunk one was Sarah. Sarah said that when Janey called her a snob Jane was stumbling up to her and warned her not to eat the fruit Ron rosed. Oh said Janey appeared to be intoxicated shortly before her death Jay said the same thing in his reenactment video we may never know for sure what killed Janey but we have to look at probability and we found some other pieces of evidence in the investigation the do suggest rub alcohol poisoning Levinsky addity or darkening of the skin do blood pooling sets in at around two hours after death but more than one person notice that Janey started turning blue almost immediately one partygoer said she started turning a darker color all over then one of the ambulance attendants who treated Janey at the scene gene in the bank parking lot made the comment she was not as blue as my jeans but she was getting blue turning blue especially blue coloring during the lips or cyanosis is an indicator of oxygen deprivation which is one of the symptoms of rubbing alcohol poisoning Ron Ward said that when he saw Janey in the morgue she had blood around her mouth blood in the mouth can come from gastric distress which is yet another symptom of isopropyl alcohol call poisoning another thing was that one of the ambulance attendants had smelled a faint perfume on Janey. A fruity smell can indicate ketones in the urine which is again Dan another symptom of alcohol poisoning as we said alcohol poisoning can also lead to cardiovascular collapse and in the third autopsy Dr Plus did suggest that Janey could have died from a heart Arrhythmia. If janey collapsed from alcohol poisoning her condition might have been exacerbated at the Party and she was lying on the ground gasping for breath when at least one person in an attempt to reviver through a cup of beer on her another another person had mentioned a cup of water also being thrown on her this could explain the fluid in her lungs that Dr Malik noted in the first autopsy so johnny was already suffering from over intoxication and central nervous depression. She wouldn't have been able to expel this fluid from her lungs and she might have experienced some symptoms. The drowning one is that your throat closes up to prevent any more fluid entering the lungs and when your throat closes up that can cause hemorrhaging which was noted in the third autopsy. It's possible that at that point she blacked out I hope so because the alternative is that she was on the ground on helpless paralyzed and unable to ask for help while everyone continue to party around her and poor beer down her throat she lay dying. We'll be right back. My Name is Danny Shapiro and I'm the host family secrets a podcast about the secrets kept from US secrets we keep from others and the secrets we keep from ourselves. Family secrets is more than just a podcast audio experience. It's it's also a community a place for people to share powerful stories of heartbreak healing and hope in season two we hear from a woman whose father's there's descent into dementia revealed his deepest darkest secrets and we hear from a man who kept his wife's terminal illness a secret to protect at the children listen to season to a family secrets on apple podcasts the iheartradio APP or wherever you get your podcasts the reason I'm an investigator is because I want to answer families questions but in Johnny's case I can't definitively answer the big question of how she died. Remember parents of murdered children children. That's the organization where the wards found Dr Brunell and the V. Docs Richard Walter when we talked with their executive director Bev warnock we also spoke with their volunteer coordinator Sherry Nolan. She became involved with the organization when her daughter who's pregnant was killed. I was talking about how one of my goals investigator is to help families but when I mentioned closure she told us that isn't something we or anyone can provide for a family well. We we make sure we don't use the word closure. No one likes to hear the word closure. We have someone here that used to say the only anything that closes the little call grief is so devastating to them. You know it's not just have the funeral and then try to recover. They have to go into the justice. This is years later the world blocker some so never end for them. Never you know and it's not something you can. you know after a couple months cheers. You know you can kind of feel like you're moving on because you can't you know your mind is consumed with guilt that you didn't say they loved on before the last or were any other kind of guilt there might be a lot of survivors still guilt the healing process to talk about it and to be with other family just to be able to talk to him because they understand Dan no-one else understand. We all make it clear that we understand the grease paint but we don't understand individually victories in their pain because no one knows exactly how I feel. It was my daughter my granddaughter for they understand the painting that we all go through and I I never you know a lot of questions that survivor asking asking. When does it get better with you? Get over it. I think that they aunt because other people say and so. I always say it's not that he gets better than different. I never say that they'll be healed is a healing process that will never ask never tell them that they'll be over at any point in time because that Greece journey is is a journey that you always be at the beginning of this investigation. I thought that people might be more forthcoming because so much time has passed. I I also thought more people would come forward with renewed pressure on the case but the thing is they might have already come forward with everything they know and over the years years there has been a lot of pressure on the case it was reopened in two thousand four reinvestigated and was a high profile case in the state of Arkansas. I wondered if anything could have been done for her at the party. Could she have survived. I asked ABC's FBI consultant Brad Garret about this it and all of the stories I mean do you think that there's anything that they could have done more to help her well. I I you know when you when you talk about people helping other other people you have to you have to look at it in context where are you. You're sort of in the middle of nowhere in Arkansas which means you know the luxury of where you all are like. I'm in Washington. DC If you started to choke on something you could probably get an ambulance end or the Fire Department to your house in five every six minutes probably not realistic in in Marshall Arkansas and they did in my view and you know other. Could they have done something at the scene. Maybe maybe maybe not I mean if if you believe that can affect Janey choke to death if you believe that that I'm not sure what they could have done family happened to be a paramedic an EMT but you're talking about high school kids so the odds are that work great and so they did really what I would think is the the next best thing they didn't wait for emergency services to come to them. If in fact they even exist it put in the back of a pickup truck. Now it was sort of unclear we're about how much of a lag there was between when she went down off the porch of this cabin and when she was actually taken you know I got different time periods but at some point they said we've got to get hurt to a doctor or does somebody that's can take a look at it so what ultimately is Janey story. Janey story is a tragedy. It's a story about a town where there was enough distrust between some of its citizens and the authorities that wild rumors could be believed. It's also a tragedy. There's a lot of the people in Marshall Arkansas are tired of hearing about and it's a story about a family never got answers. Janey died in nineteen eighty nine at the age of sixteen and her Father Ron Ward spent thirty years investigating his daughter's death breath which was almost twice as long as she was alive. Ron Is gone now as well and I can't help but admire him he wanted the truth. He wanted to live in a world that had answers and justice. He wanted his daughter back. The route. This season people have continued. Can you to reach out to us about unsolved cases. Parents Siblings friends spouses. They're all desperately trying to find out what happened to their loved. Ones I think about season one and Rebecca Gould's father and sister Larry Danielle who were still trying to get justice for her. I've learned a lot from Ron Ward. He shows us that you can go a long way. If you don't give up you can get a case reinvestigated a special prosecutor appointed and even another autopsy conducted. You can also get the information made public said other people can come in and try to get answers. I've learned the importance of never losing faith in the fact that one person can make a difference with enough pressure and time anything can happen. It's a lesson that I'm taking the heart. As I continued. Investigate Rebecca Gould murder at the beginning of the season. We talked about time travel on that fateful night nine hundred eighty nine. Many of the partygoers were teens themselves thirty years later a lot of those kids or adults with kids of their own. A lot of them have teens were the same age as they were when Janey died and right now those teens might be heading out to parties in cabins in the woods.

At the end, we have a special presentation of a lovely piece of fan fiction from the book, bad fan fiction, that our guests Melissa ingests wrote, it is wonderful. It is sonic related. It involves the death of Brad Garrett and I very much want you to hear it. So stay tuned. And enjoy the episode. Big hedgehog of blue hedgehog. Hello, and welcome to our there yet and exploration and education and anime. I'm your anime idiot. Patrick dugan. I'm an anime expert Dana Hollander, and I'm McCullough. Your hairy anime child man voiced by bench awards by. Sorry, we have to pause and redesigned, Brenton before we continue. So, sorry, horribly mistreat our animators and completely redo Brendan. It's crunch time. I'll be up for the next sixty hours working on him. I'm so sorry and they won't get overtime because it's not union. We love commentary. And helping us in this effort we have two guests with us this week. We have to authors of the book bad fan fiction, please introduce yourselves. My name is Melissa. I'm one of the authors of bad pension. And I like sonic. I'm just Morse. I am an author of bad fan fiction the book this week. We, we have a fun one, we're going to watch the sonic x anime boys. Yeah. Brandon you already have hesitations. How are you feeling? Have you seen this show? Yeah. I remember being a prime age for the four kids, FOX anime block on Saturday mornings, and get an iphone this, it's sonic. All right. I've never seen it. But boy, am I excited. Yeah. I also did not know this was a thing until I just Google sonic, anime just very hopeful. What are your experiences with this show? I watched it in middle school because that's when my sonic as was, and I loved it start yelling. L excusing, but I have not seen it since I never watched sonic x. But I, I watched all the other video game and game animals for Pokemon yu-gi-oh mega man, Kirby just all of those other shows, and not sonic, you missed sonic. I was aware of the chillier white version of the cartoon one I thought was around until sonic boom came back in recent years. Yeah, this was this was news to me, just from the source prime two thousand three Abeille this aired in Japan around here in two thousand five it's weird to think of anything with the word sonic x blank for kids. It's true. It's treacherous waters. Trying to the ship. I feel like sonic is a fun, one, because it's one of those things that, like everybody knows about everybody knows sonic, whether you like sonic, I guess that's the question. I for one love that blue boy. I will admit I have never played like a whole sonnet game I would have friends who had it, and I would pick it up for like the afternoon. While we were hanging out but beyond that, I was never like a Sega or Nintendo. I was like so PlayStation. So I, I only have the cultural knowledge around sonic and not the prime experience. Yeah. I mean, I loved sonic adventure to battle to this show is like the plot of that game, which is familiar with season two, I was about to say, I played endless hours of the multi-player of sonic adventure to battle. Yeah, it's so fun, so good. Spend a lotta time in that child garden just raising bitty babies and making them fight each other, which in hindsight is probably pretty bad one of them had hell in one of their powers. And I was like that's. That's good show, heaven and show held like a twelve years old. And you're like whoa. Sonics positions. Are we are going to watch the first three episodes of sonic x speed speed man? This me. I'm fast. Boy, that's catchphrase right, chillier. The cats. Will pop punk card is this opening song is just so good. Fantasy four I am horrified by how much I remember the song I watched it. But I didn't think I watched enough to memorize theme song. Is it is horribly catchy? I didn't think I knew it. But when I heard it I was like where have I heard all coming back? Gotta go faster faster faster to. I mean, the Lear, just fantastic. My favorite part is probably the clip which we see in a later episode of sonic speaking zone. Ask. To that song. This is sonic, if I didn't know already. I know now. Rude. Dude with the attitude. This is a but hidden show. But but he does have Philly. The Disney thing of like he were it's gloves and shoes. But no other clothing. So it does make you wonder they do understand what clothing is they just choose not only fully clothed. Amy's cream is fully close but not. Yeah. We have some expecting. What a way to start. Introduction. So for EPA of one, we, we start with the with Hello. I am big the cat. Napping napping by a lake you know, he does. Yeah. And of course, he is in spitting range of a military complex. Sirens over the tree lines as, as sonic is breaking into the I almost said the robot Knicks. Layer. And this is where we get that, sweet opening. I would jump in real quick. I do like the with sonic adventure. Two. We do have the canonical time line. Dr abundant being Dr grandfather, so sonic is a least like fifty years old. He's glass spent three generations man. Sorry continue that. I'm already lost. Got to the opening my knowledge of the sonic Laura comes from the unraveled episode with the sonic bible. Oh. You have watched that, that's a rough over your encapsulation of sonic lore. He does quilting. Quoting circles. Sorry, episode one, so. So we gotta sonic he's, he's breaking in, because ignorance about to get all the chaos emeralds and put them in a big machine and make energy. I guess sure evil, you know you know how you have an evil machine. Yeah. Yeah. We got one. So Sonics running through all these robots on the defense perimeter just jumping around having a grand old time we got tails, Amy in a plane giving air support. What they do their job the tornado it's miles per hours, AK tales is the plainy built got way too much about sonic. I'm sorry. Wait. I, I knew that's what his last name was that. I never got that. It was like miles per hour. That is stupid. What does he go by tales every Ardy ways to? He's like a cool regular name. He's not a fan of jazz. It's hit or miss when people get named by their like icon, ick body things because we got knuckles tails and then just Avon. And. So, yeah, he's, he's breaking in cream and cheese are. Being held by Akman as he's about to put the last several then silent bus in and in a misfire with a robot shoots the machine and blows blizzard all up. And it, it transports them all something goes into a dark state. Of the nether realm. But we soon find out it's a busy intersection, because he's in Hollywood, baby. They were hinting at the movie for the build up for shadowing. I have to say when sonic breaks into the base healing locks is man who's holding trigger deadman's, which is don't come any closer all hit the switch and activate the machine and then sonic procedures run over on the room while robot shooting item at the whole time, it may have just hit the switch, whatever sonic. Because the whole thing was like I'm faster than you can get to the trigger quicker as he takes the longest detour on this feeling around the walls bothered me. Makes me think that really wanna push that. I like this intro to the show because it's a good way to be like, here's a look characters doing something actually. It's a kid show. Are you asleep yet? We went fast and now something else has happened. You just woke up Sunday morning, your aunt. You're ready for. All that sugary cereal idea gotta go, gotta go fast, so, yeah, we see sonic all alone separated from his friends. He wakes up in the middle of a busy. Intersection in Los Angeles. We've all been there. It's all right pass it. That's how you get Holly pretty much you pass out somewhere else and you wake up and. Naturally. All these, these strange monkey people called humans staring at I mean, ignorant human. So like they're not strange to right. He doesn't really look like any of these people though. Kinda wait a minute. If eight-man is Dr Krantz on that means Dr Baden has canonical fucked stop. Let someone believable. Much like goofy. I do want to on the subject of eg man. I do want to say that I heard it, and then I looked it up to confirm, but eh Geman is the same voice as the narrator from the Pokemon series sent something. And I was like, what if this guy instead was saying last time ash the kid? Cetera. And I was right. Yeah, I was looking up the cast and there's a lot of poke among crossing here in this studio. Yes, it's all four kids. The FOX for kids lineup. I assume it was just like the same people just doing all of that. But yeah, we got sonic waking up in the city there's a crowd of people being like a of blue hedgehog. What? I do like how many times they're like. Oh, is that a weird cat because it really brings you back to the sonic movie trailer where he's like? Meow? Oh, this horrible line makes sense. Now. Times in these three episodes, where meow fixing? Yes. Seven fitted in that. Everyone that trailer just doesn't know their song. Yeah. They obviously aren't true sonic fans. I mean confuse me too, because if I saw sonically in-person, I won't be like, oh, that's a hedgehog. Billy what the fuck is that? I like it looks like a big hedgehog. No, it does. It's very human limbs. Not wearing shoes. And socks up. One big. One big. I. What are you gonna lie and bunch of just the most cartoonish cops literally the Irish cops there tonight comply. I wrote that. Boy to talk to talk to. Is also the guy couldn't do Irish exit trying at each just couldn't do it. The gun to the studio that day was like I'm working on something. I'm gonna workshop this on you guys. Sonic. No one cares about the wisdom. So yeah, bunch of cops relate. Hey, buddy or not wanna come. Hang out wanna want to be friends with us and come to the police station and naturally sonic bolts, because Saana Cates. Cops. Problems escapes and but bulletin goes out that everyone is on high alert for this blue hedgehog. There is nothing going on in this city. There is. The number one priority driving, though. Miles and miles the one. Which they referred to as simply one. Oh one which as a non Ellie native I was surprised at bothered me. So. Yeah, I grew up in southern California. And every time I hear someone not perceived a freeway with the I'm like, what are you talking about? Another lows list. It's weird 'cause we don't do that back in Pennsylvania, we're from, so I would still call it like the one out here. But then the other highway Pennsylvania route one, so I don't know why I do that. But I do it's, it's all about the culture, baby. He's run down the highway jumps over some sick. Police cars Rubik the police barricade also at bulldozers in it is that normal the technology available to this two thousand three police squad is very high tat. They got a full on barricade on this highway, that's on a easily jumps over there. Like all we tried one thing better calling veal leads speed. Cubs, why I don't want the fast cups in my city. Then so can live. We don't need anyone back fast. Do you think they actually have that like real police forces Formula one race LA police department? Do they have that? They're just win for sonic show up. Well, come November when the movie comes. So they're just trading stronger. I was just thinking at this point sonic really hasn't done. Why do they care because he's weird and different? He's to catch it jealous of his six shoes. I know I am gonna get his shoes. So the elite speed team is called in where it's cots with Formula one race covers Geles. Geles. We get a to Longmont. And it's just this hot shot, captain, I, I want a full on anime just of this speak up on your just cocky guy just super into solve in cry. There's only one person that's ever been to vets for me. I caught him in a minute. So yeah, a bunch of Formula one race cars. Just roll out on the highway catch up the sonic but still some way too fast. They're going at two hundred ninety miles an hour. God. It's the this racecar sequences the most on real part of this show with all these anthropomorphic talking creatures. This is by far the most realistic and the end of the freeway, as like, oh, they forgot to build there. Having finished building the highway yet. Cops know that there's an end point to the highway, they need to stop their car. Vast until we get with one mile to sell very. So yeah, they they keep running trying to catch him. But the captain has this nitrous that makes them go five hundred miles an hour is still too. Slow. Sonnet goes the speed of sound, sonic, boom and just. It's ridiculous. I love the guys reaction to him. It's just like Saudi boom. No, no, no. That's that shows not coming little. But also saw doesn't like effortlessly, he doesn't get like we saw earlier when he's fighting egg man, he just like the ring and gets powered up again. Like fight all the robots. This just gives sonic boom the sound with. No trouble, just whenever he feels like it, your Neff to you didn't have to fight anybody. Here he was just running running to his thing took no obstacles here. Just the fastest cops. Idea like this episode did one thing. And it said, sonic is fast. Let's all you need. He's fast. He's all cocky, mostly fast. But there's also there's also four wall breaking moment for sonic shirt of looks at the camera. I think the speed racer I think it's a racecar driver is, like, hey, what are you doing, what kids see this dangerous and sonic shoot up pauses on top of the car looks at the camera, like, hey, kids, don't try to chasing a hedgehog with a Formula one race car. So what I'm sorry. Does he know we're watching what the fuck is this, sonic is very aware? He's woke us fuck. He's meta. He also said s team the ESMA Stanford slow motion. Her concerned like he didn't heed the motion in there. Slow team. Yeah. That's a sick burden on learn when to stop. But that's the problem he can't stop. He's got to go to. I also yet he he jumps off the edge of the highway winds in a pool and he can't swim. He, he can only do so much. So I realize this is actually. Because it's the same thing with stitch stitch you super powerful superstrong. The he's sinks. He can't suggest which came first. If this was two thousand three what did we come out in two thousand two? Stole fitches. Stitch. They give an explanation of like he's an experiment. We designed him like this. Like he's very densely specific densities is great. Yes, sonic has no real reason. I think it's just in the game swim. Too many chili dogs. Maybe we should just start a conspiracy theory that sonic and all the others are one of Jumba experiments. Yes. Spiro wants such crossover. Six hundred twenty five episodes of that show. Right. There's still more. We're going to reboot. The sonic is sonic is number one and Jumba thought this was a mistake. Less fast, more strong. Stuck in this pool. He can't he, he goes to fasten cascade on, then a little boy, in this big fancy house sees a ruckus, in his backyard and goes out and saves. And this is this is one of our main people Christopher I hate. Remember hating him so much when I walked in the middle, and then he came again. When you're watching now. Oh. Arrived. Like he's just uninteresting boring. Looks vaguely like seora. That's going. To kill that going for. Con I love seora. Don't talk bad about my son. I was I was severely disappointed. They didn't have the drowning music from one of the sonic games of the two. To do singling music that would have been a time in sonic. Boom. We're just like you just county. Well episode to back when their doctorate men's base when he was holding cream and cheese hostage. He, he said, creamy dreamy creamy dreaming. I just. Nothing. I wanted to point out how not okay I am with that, man is a furry. Sweep that under the room. Thank you for bringing that back. Madam anyone other than animals and ruins, like, who's Cudi wanting to attracting? She's like six. Invention fuck up. Wow. Okay. Oh, two. We're at Christopher's house. And I was wondering why he lives in such a big house by himself? It's because his parents, both have money and is a course the fucking filthy. Rich kid gets the parallel dimension like friends. Yeah. In some poor kid, find sonic. Because his parents aren't around rich kids problems, too. Thought it's going to be like. Like TIMMY Turner. So his mom calls them, and he's like, hey mom, I have something to tell you and she's like, oh, no what happened. And he's like, it's not that bad. I you know, you told me not to go swimming in the pool at night, but I say a cat meow. Him telling his mom this. It's like the worst lead into the story like he could have just been like, oh, a cat was in trouble. And I helped it and said it's like you know that thing you told me not to do. I did it. But I also kind of did something else. I did it for a good reason. Mommy. You remember that arson talk? We have to cap. Yeah. Then orphanage a pool at all. Like, is there a sensor, like, I know someone wanted to pool last night. That's what I was about to say. He didn't have to his mom anything there. No, she's off, filming a movie somewhere. But it's taking way too long. And his dad keep sending money. I think that's something she says, like she's like daddy, o Sunday, more money duddy, more books, daddy warbucks. Stop it Jaspers anyway meow. So. So he, he gets off the phone with his mom and sonic, of course. Like, I'm not a cat breath. Br. He's not very happy about that. And then I didn't write down, why, but sonic sonic mentions that he's like, I, I don't know where I came from. I don't know where I am. And I don't know where I came from. He asked them. Chris, ask them where you learn to talk like, I don't know. Yeah. I'm the president. I've always known. I was born speaking. Born where the shoes. And then Chris gets a call from his dad, who is not with his mom, and which is, you know, that's fine. I'm sorry. I said like that. Imply he called because he was like your mom told me that you jumped in the pool at night. What the heck is wrong with you? But they're both just like really concerned about him and they love him. And I like that. I thought it was sweet the Beijing, but not enough to, you know be there with your child. Yeah. After after he gets off the phone with his parents. He's like, yeah. Hungry sonic. I can give you some food and Sonics. Yeah. What do you got? And he's like I looked up hedgehogs and said that I can give you cat food, and he's like, and then he tastes it, and he's like grows meow. Now at this point, I was like, oh, sonic only chilly Doug idiot. Boy, he has a terrible nine you can just Google Sonics favorite food, and it comes right out. Then sonic he isn't standing for this, and he jumps in a tree and Christmas reaching out for him. And he's like, no, don't leave, I'll give you whatever you want. And this visual of sonic, just like standing in a tree looking down at this, boy, and being like SIA. I just lost my mind. It was so funny. Like the I would write that in a fan fiction where like I was in love with sonic, you know that. Romantic in like the bad boy, abandoned. It's like hypothetically, speaking of I was in love with sonic medically speaking, and he did that to me, and it's like romantic hypothetical Chris. That moment we all know I have a crush shadow nuts I will show showed up yet gotta take kids. Yeah. Yeah. One Pickens of this. I was sad shadow wasn't in these ones. I love shadow season to all right. So. So, and then we get the song again and I listened to it every time. Not skip it. It's usually prime listening. And then. We hold on. My notes. What happened here? Okay. Okay. So, So, Chris, Chris onic hanging out on the couch and sonic has he's eaten something I don't know what there's a wrapper on the table. Presumably chilidog presumably, a chili dog and they're watching the news and sonic is kind of, like I don't wanna be here. I want to go out and run around I want explore and Chris's like now you could get on your own your mom. I'm like the police were just after you, do you not understand. You don't understand the implications. And then in this newscast of talking about sonic and they're interviewing people and the and there's a policeman and he's just like he was like this tall, and he was blue, he looked like a free clicking. Necessarily mean. So good. The very indistinct for police officer being like we're trying to find this thing. You know, just send us your. And then an old man comes in the room and it's a Chris's grandpa, and he's like, Chris, they're talking about a weird blue thing on the news. And they looks directly next to Chris, and he's like, and then he picks up sonic and he's like holding a screwdriver, and they're like, what are you gonna do with that? He's like, I want to take him apart and see how it works. I'm not a mission. I'm a hedgehog. I wrote down Chris's, tiny scientists grandpa who kind of looks like sonic meet sonic at a media tries to screw them. Is it in accurate? Oh. I got a very is felt like a back to the future pre cool. Great are very bardy and talk love it. This is what made loses mind forget that he had that they have any relationship, Artie. That's why Martin always hanging out with them. I need you to remember. He went crazy because he needed to build a time machine to go back and hang out with. Life's work to get back to this happiness. So they keep the heap watching the news and a cream and cheese are also in this world. They're stuck on top of like a billboard or something, and sonic is like I gotta go save them. And he just runs off and Chris, like, wait. Do you even know where they are? And he stops comes back because he doesn't. Also, I'm I'm very upset with sonic here because when he runs out he runs through a hedge destroying part of it. And when he runs back, he runs through a different part of. Distinct rather than, you know, not fucking over the people who are hiding you from the. He sees the place on TV, and he's like, oh, that seems like a place where Edmund would be like he's not. For bands, like not there somewhere else. Terry complex. Gotta go to comes back and grandpa, just call somebody and finds out that cream and cheese were taken to area ninety nine a top secret government facility, sue secret that this nine year old Christopher knows all about it. Yeah. And his grandpa can just call a guy and find out that they took these weird things to it. Grip of job is that explained? Is he just like kooky? That's. He has gadgets. Qurqus kooky, scientists inventor, dad, and the giant car, the very phallic car. I didn't even think about us, right? Yeah, so sonic is like great now. I know where they are. I can go get them, Chris and grandpa or like we're gonna come with you. And he's just kind of like, oh, okay. 'cause grandpa, I wrote this down. Grab has gadget. Just thing. Yeah. So they're driving to area ninety nine which, again, how secret can it be? If you can just drive to it. Outside for like two hours. How onboard grandpa is with infiltrating secret government base for this unknown creature that just appeared in your living room. Yeah. He's just totally down for this you helmet. Fuck support the all about sonic so far, is that the police are after. They're like, oh, cool. Do you wanna team up in raid this government facility? Chris, go to school. School that I go into a secret military base like grandpa this weird thing we. When you're rich. By the school. So they're on their way and his Chris's grandpa gives sonic this IP that looks very dragon ball z. Just. Yeah. And it, it can see infrared lasers sonic can avoid them. How convenient would you go through the vent where knowns expecting you? There's just shit to the lasers. Conveniently not in what they were like a hedgehog sized. To break in and they're like, we know he's going to go through the vents, we've got to prepare for this guy's, we've all played metal gear solid. Bullying me. We wanna put those lasers in those bats. Gotta. So then we get a shot of the facility, and it's all very high security, and cream and cheese are being kept in a like tube thing to be examined. And it was at this point that I sat in thought, I, but cremate a lot of people furry. Because she's very cute and very small, and she talks like this, why a lot of five year olds had some awakening that they didn't realize ten years later, she's like very small Lola bunny, but, like definitely a lot less sexual. If you what the sexualize sonacare that Sally corn from the original series, have you seen Rouge the bat, fair wing. Can we go back once again or just remembered in the first episode rouges there, she doesn't say anything? She's just there and never come back. I miss her. I love Rouge the bat. If you don't know anything about sonic and you're watching this show, like there's just this character. Who's there, never discussed and the titties? Oh, back service and moving on. I was talking about her with a Paul last night. My boyfriend, he looked at her Wiki page, and it says her likes are a lot of the male characters the chaos emeralds and the master emerald. And in her dislikes is not getting the chaos emeralds and not getting the master. So that's all she's about, and also knuckles and not giving her the cast I'm rose. Pacific that scenario she feels very fav- Allenton to me. She like bear. She looks cool. We're not sure what she does the teams. Oh, I was gonna disagree with you. But you got a point. So enough about Rousseau bad who's not even. Sonic gets in, we discussed the air vents and how there are laser lasers in them for some reason, but conveniently not the place that he's sitting only in front of him. So he drops down into the facility and a Christian granpar- like kind of giving him tips. But he's, he's own hedgehog. He doesn't listen. And he's just he's just a running from the security cameras like too fast for, for them to see him. And he goes up these are. I'm too fast for them. And I was like, why didn't he say they were too slow? Come on sonic tenets freeze. At which at which point, I was like the seems far too easy. Something needs to go wrong here. So we get back to cream cheese and there, too. And there's like a lockdown thing coming down around them and creams. Just like I like this, and then the power goes out something tore up the electrical wires, and I was like, there's no way sonic did this who done it. But it does give him the opportunity to break cream cheese out. So they're running away and cream is like, well, how did you do it sounded and Sonics like, I don't know. I didn't do it. You know, me just stumbled through life and good things. Opportunist exactly. And then the lights go back on it. They gotta go real fast and get out of there. Because now the security cameras are also shooting lasers. Doesn't think to pick her up until I there sixty percent out of there. Yeah. You're so slow like, come on. Hurry up. And it's like, oh, wait. I, I have others. How much could she way twelve pounds? The very small I forget how small they are not heavy. But she yeah, he's like stiff debts very big, not big heavy. So they the things that shut down the electrical stuff swoop in, they're like, little tiny paper airplanes, and their, their reckon, these security cameras lasers, the just flowing through them, like just sort of piercing, the cameras, which also big question. How dense are these planes that there? Metal everything is just so dense and sonic land. So. So they're like climbing up. Some stairs. Lots of stairs. And then there's just like everything's just like falling apart around them, because the lasers are now just pointing every which direction and still shooting, and like tearing apart the staircase. But then it just everything turns out, okay, sonic pulls up cream, and then they run up and they're out. Yeah. And then sonic is like that sounds like a plane jails is here. We only playing that sonic to any other plane. No, that's in their world. So he's the one that helped them get out those little paper airplane. Things were his what yellow paper airplanes, where? Tales us like he's talking to grandpa, he's like, oh, yeah. These are these are, so common where we and sonic had no idea that they were from tales or that it would have been anything related to his world, sonic does need to be smart. He's pretty. Right. He's a jock sonic. Chad. So they're all back at Chris and Grandpa's place. And they're all introducing themselves entail says, I'm tails, I'm on especially buddy, right, sonic and song. Just goes. Yeah. You are just like, oh, I love that. I thought it was so sweet Grandpa's like these are so neat these little planes, and then Chris gets mad at sonic for being reckless and these are not his exact words, but I wrote down. Is this a game to you? And sonic is just kind of like. Fine. We're everything's gonna be fine. And, like, none of them can remember where they came from. And then they're all like, if we're all here, what if Eggiman is here to, and then he is. And he's like, dang it I exploded. And now I'm here. Oh, well, guess I'm going to have to rebuild my empire and take over the universe from here. You know what it makes sense egg ran? He's he thinks his feet. He's like, well, I was trying to take over the universe over there, in workout, a now here doing again on his. He is like, the, the most of a go-getter out of everyone in the series. He's determined he smart. He's going with it like what a resume it's been like a day. He's on this, like isolated island any already has enough power to like, get his operation up and going, he still has his robots. He's, he's been busy, the past twenty four. He is a legitimate criminal trying to take over the world and what his sonic done in that time. Got shaped by the cops and almost. Yeah. Like phonic failed miserably in comparison to how well doing in this world. Sonic, is it shag. He's using his natural born abilities to propel himself through life without a care in the world while eg man is working hard, using his brain to build robots, Synteen creatures and pave his own way through the world. He's ING anchorman isn't in. Oh, sure there's no proof that Ignat FOX, right? Not yet. Hit there. I mean, have you seen Jim Carey? The reasons is because he lays eggs, anyway. He doesn't need to. Fish eggs. So he lays them in fertilizer someone else's for. God disgusting, I'm sorry. You brought. Episode three we get a shot at Ignatz base. You know the tower we saw in the last up suit just kidding. It's an entirely different base. It looks completely different now for some fucking reason that they never address. Twelve more hours to REBA redesigned it, and he's trying to figure out what giant robot should I send into destroy the city because that's just what he does, and he's good at it. But instead of deciding which one he wants he leaves it up to chance. He takes all of his playing cards with all his personalized robots on which on brand. I like the branding. He's got his own virtue. Dai's and he just put them in a machine that pretty much shuffles on random and picks out randomly and it's missile wrist. Rename. A robot that has like rockets on its wrist shoots out from giant coil. But the rockets or even explode they're just he's putsches very far away. That's only are we to believe that he built all these robots like right now or did they just conveniently come with him when he came to earth. Yeah. He he, he brought a storage shed with them in the tower all supplies. Did it reminds me the holy grandm- robot? It's very curvy right back at ya. We're king DVD calls nightmare enterprises. And is like, hey, I need a stop curvy send me anything. Just semi some little work, visit time. Okay. Never work. And he always beats them and then they just various like he gave up. I don't care this robot. It's an acne subdivision. Because they always send them useless shit, but he keeps coming back to them every time. Yeah. And then after sent the robot we get the fuck it beach of this isn't good animated. They get it done in the first three episodes. I'm in. And we just see people on the beach, and then we just see missile wrist just emerging from the ocean. Just like oh, hey, there's a big real, any just destroys people's cars, and like the lifeguards. Shea much the giant tenor, cruel from the poem that was banned in the us. The nine eleven similarities and also James had boobs almost the same pursued that's exact same. 'cause I swear I saw much happened. Was at the nine eleven comparison Rosa, just man with moves which is worse. See lay leave the shot of Tenneco smashing. The building in the intro. Yeah. So it must have been the. James was just too hot for US kids. And as missile wrist is destroying the city and like walking in a matches floating along behind him just like puttering till the. And signing sonic disaligned fuck it out, and it's just off exploring and no one really news Warih's. So as I lost my boy, just like went off to the Grand Canyon to, like running jump. We get because he couldn't do that anywhere else. We did a lot of cliffs where I come from rear geography with the city of run a metropolis. We're also right, by the beach all this giant mountains, nearby and chasms randomly and a desert not too far away. Where what is this place? Sounds like LA Los Angeles. Yeah. Maybe it could of easily run to Arizona. Guessing very fast. Damn why Zoli so weird. I mean yeah. We know he can go faster than five hundred miles an hour. So the speed us without any effort. Meanwhile, the robots destroy downtown and just walk around punching from a distance at things and the cups in a barricade and just laying into opened fire and all of the guns look like regular guns, but definitely have leaser sound effects, Hugh. Hugh, lloyd. Good. I noticed that too. It was it was peak. We can't have just regular guns in this children's show to hunting rifles. Yeah. Straight up snipers shooting at the his room. So it can't be too violent because it's got the latest on. And then a guy just comes up with a fucking flame thrower, and just lice them on fire. So this police force has a flame division has a like NASCAR division. Like what the fuck are these cops? And so beginning is looking for sonic just trying to see where he is. And this is where we get a shot of him, just like in the mountains, just like running up and down mountainsides jumping over Taza. Okay. That's what he's into. He's a simple civil head Chuck civil pleasures gotta get that workout. It's the little things. Oh, we also when we come back we see Amy and knuckles. They're here to accept there in the sewers. We're not sure why that's never really trust. Cool. This plan to go in the sewers, and Amy was just like, okay go brooding. So he's the. This version of knuckles is something that I was unfamiliar with, because I mostly know knuckles from sonic boom, in sonic Boeing, please. They took all of his brain, power, and put it into his weird large body. So this knuckles was something very new for me. I was like a Hello him. I love him in. This this knuckles. This just a SaaS gay of sonic is, so they're in the sewers, and while they're underground, not his does. He say what he's doing is he said he's trying to get somewhere or just stay on site, I suppose and Amy to saying, like, ocean out, solid find sonic. He's our leader. He knows what to do Kelly. No, not now. And that's when the here not here, not now. This is where missile risk is above them here. The ground shaking as he's walking overall and Amy's like, oh, jeez. We to figure what that is. We gotta help them out. Not this kind of. No. I don't care. I don't care about anything here. I'm a teenager. And he's just kids getting back to the master general cause. He has to protect these motivation. I can't everyone's here have Ignatz here Rouge. The bat is presumably also here 'cause she was closer. So like, everyone's everyone that would steal the number is here in this world. Now, I guess. But that's his whole thing. Wasn't get back seven easy day at work wants to sit in front of the emerald over there. I also say so I understand that Amy gets a lot of hate from sonic fans. And I was from these three episodes, AB is one of the smartest character in the when they're in the plane, and she's like tails, the plane on fire. What are we gonna do until CISCO's? We're gonna save some. Plane. Told you about this issue, and now she's like let's find sonic bet the smart thing to do. Right. And not cause this like the new. You gotta point she's definitely betrayed better in video than I was expecting defense. She's my best sonnet maybe cremated it. And she's just quite literally, the damsel distress for everything Amy looks better by. Let me just to do things as opposed to like, the little baby gets captured. I got a fucking Hamer. Upgraded to logical one in this. And it's time man like hacks into every broadcast ever in like appears on every TV and computer giving his holy monologue. I'm gonna take over the city. Like, tell me what your leader is. I'm gonna fuck Gillam because it's my city now and he gives I love because he gives the rich animator laugh of. Nineties. I, I didn't think the show is anime until I regret. Nothing. Definitely. Animate. And this around this time at Chris entails fly off because they see the broadcast, we gotta stopping man, and then cooked egg Manley talking to the police chief show me your leaders, like no any blows up the car using. Okay. And he gets the mayor. I'm going to city guy. Can't let that happen. And they blew up another car, and he's like technically it's not in our city charter wagon I should like immediately, but legally not. It's the bureaucracy where he's like I'm willing to give the city over to you. But legally, I ten. Doesn't stopping me is like the bureaucracy of this red tape, you can break the law. I can link egg naturally considerately gallery. And then that's when tales shows flying around in his plane and the robot just like I was doing punches over into hits the propeller so the planes damage, DNA going down, which is great because it's got the nine year old in the backseat. So, yes, small animal endangering, a child and as when tales not quite yet, I gotta trick on my sleeve and just mashes a few buns, and the plane transforms into in, like a shit in the shape of like an ex that seems to be much faster and doesn't rely on this big, bulky, like biplane design and I don't know why he wasn't always using. It's an x wing June. It's why would he not always just use this one? You'll exa style. It's like it's like someone who has like an old classic car. Well, if you can get a nicer newer one, but then you put the love into that. Also nine year old Lizzie know about old style. He went through a midlife crisis at four and a half. You can appreciate this that IX. He's just that kid you went to school. But then you're like, oh, you're into playing. My good friend in high school carried a briefcase. There was a time where I debated carry a pocket watch. Thank god. I did not hang that carried pocket watches. They were weird people at my school. At this time the robots now up on building, so he can just get easier point of view for putting down at things because he's quite literally punching down at people below taking the cheap shots. And this is when Amy's and knuckles runs up onto the building Amy's. Like we, you know, we gotta stop the robot. But we gotta wait for Saadi. It's like at fucking. She goes running with the hammer and just like slammed into his leg, and I link that she isn't just like weekly super-powerful. She hits it and kind of, like, hold your hands like how dammit. Reverberate back through the hammer just like didn't work and the robot grabs her holds her hostage is nuggets about to run. Brad a being among because you've got those big weird knuckles. I mean that's his name. Getting closer to Rome squeezes. Amy Moore's got hostage. And this is when we see sonic like running back this whole time. And he sees them on TV. Oh, I guess I better join the fight. Not not worried about the city or the citizens or all the trucking shows like oh boy, combat filed a man. I love fighting I would Shan. I wanna fight. And as Sonics running in, we see crisply tag out with a powering. And I just saw one any just gets like hopped up on steroids. And so he's running towards the building end like goes into the ball form in roles straight up the building up to the top floor onto the roof. And this is where we get like that scene from the beginning. He's toying with this robot and has missile risk is shooting out his missile versus Sonics jumping from the missiles coming out, and yeah, yeah, pulling his identity and his tongue out slap in his ass that good stuff. Doing the route recipe team just to. Just toying with the robot and he just eventually gets tired of it. I guess, and just like slammed straight the robot destroys. It knuckles tells him to that. Hey, beat the robot. Are dying, please? Sonic is so powerful the show, it's such a dick. Everyone in the building, we're on right now is dead. There was a scene where like when the robot initia- crash through building people, freaking out, there are two guys carrying out a woman who presumably fainted, but might have also been hit in the head with Brie and might be conscious. So I was kinda surprised by the react like the reaction shots with people because it wasn't just generic screaming like there was some Otit like they ruined my place of business. I'm out of Al. And this is when the rose destroyed in runs off. He's covered it so news. I'll get you next time, sonic and flies off this little hovercraft that kind of looks like an EKG. Was like egg carriers Golders hard, boiled a farm, and you crack it for breakfast. And okay. I get it. I know what you're talking about, like the individual one. Yeah. Jimmy neutron. Yeah. With for. Two people who only know too. And after destroyed Amy runs up and hug side. Yeah. We one up the swat teams here they're gonna stand. We didn't just save the city like we're also criminals now and this is when tales flies by his exit thing and drops down the ladder. There's like let's get out of here, sonic and Amy jump on, and I'm a fighter. I don't run a win for many thing, I'm stubborn for no real reason come on knuckles, and he jumps on the last second flies off. Oh man. We got away safe and sound thank goodness knuckles. Like, you know, I'm out fuck this and just let's go the ladder and anyone who hasn't played the game or doesn't isn't familiar with knuckles. It looks like you just read a, it looks like just like I accept that plummets. A hundred. Built for. But knuckles, can like it's I don't as far as I know it's never properly explained. Why knuckles can just collide around its neck all? Well, like logistically, it's just because we can fly and like they're like match. It's like knuckles needs to be able to do that, too. But you could do it. He's the kidney which they can't do that can lay eggs. Yeah. But that's not what he's doing. Knuckles, CLYDE even back in sonic knuckles, when he was first introduced way before roost was introduced, so I didn't even know that. Yes. So that's just stupid. As far as absolutely no reason he can just glide besides just, like, hey, this be cool mechanic, a video game. And now it's just there forever. So. And yet, that's it. And like like leave him. He does things his own way. And it's like wait. Isn't sonic edge, you want Sonics, the rude dude with attitude and knuckles? The brooding one. Yeah. Yeah. There are no, there are no good guys in this. The London shouting, and there's on it is a meal US as and then knuckles is. The other more famous guy. Charlie sheen. No breakfasts in breakfast club vendor. Yeah. He's been he's character. There's like John not. And then there's like punk of noxious gas deals was his name. See other one as the brain Amy is Molly ringwald. Shadow is Allie Chidi. Yeah. Is a child? The school brought this gremlin too high big the cats. Ed grant. Oh my God. And that's that's not a guess that's three. What a time of this was. A true blast from the I'm gonna I'm gonna give this the same review that I gave detective Pika chew. It was dumb. And I loved every minute. What did you think you're the one we're trying to convince with anime? It was like prime like the four kids shows, too. I would have definitely watch this as a kid, if I have any knowledge of on time. Yeah. I think being a sophisticated group. With an enemies. Thank you very much. This was a lot of fun. Yeah. Rewatching it like after years and years. It's like, oh, yeah, I see why like similar to end why any kid watching with be like this is fun? It's cool. Like maybe it's not great now as an adult looking back like the point. No, it's like four. Yeah. They go they go fast. They make witty remarks they win. It's fun. It definitely made me wanna watch like the good episodes of the poco on anime just like, like I love the giant Pokomo for that whole art that starts on the and then a flips over, and it's the Poseidon adventure, then they're on the island of the giant Pok Amman, and then it's the tentacle one that got sensor. I just wanna watch those five episodes a Wimpy done with it. What about the maiden on the cliffside with the gasoline? That's a good on that one. Also, the, the really creepy one we're all humans are acting like polka mine, because drowsy is a kipah tightening. Sympathizing here. They go to the roof of the building in celadon or saffron. I forget also the were they go in supreme Dahl house. Creeping. Just Pokemon now. There's just the Pokemon. Recommended viewing. I mean we heard like all the voices Pok Mon. It's fresh on the break.

Warning part to also this is based on the Hannibal TV series on NBC and not silence of the lambs of the movie sorry. Hannibal leftover the fallen trees and icy roots of the snowy forest. He was in pursuit of tonight's dinner. Everybody loves Raymond star. Brad garrett. A the man's obscene height with the handles advantage. He never lost visual. Brad Garret was just too fast hen will begin to huff, his visible breath coming quicker, intervals, finally as Brad, Garret rounded, a tree Hannibal lost visual. He sprinted to where Garrett had just been, but there is no sign of him. He uttered some sad, cannibal noises, then he heard a low. Grunt grunt that only could have come from Brad Garret, Hannibal ran to the spot where he heard the sound come from. There was Brad Garret dead in the snow. Hannibal obviously hadn't done this. So who did the answer came to him in the form of a demonic chant from the treeline Yar, too? Slow. A small smile appeared on the weathered face of the Chesapeake ripper at recognition of the voice. Hello, sonic, my old friend, sonic. The hedgehog ran out of the trees and to Hannibal side. He was grinning, I haven't seen you since college. All right. Doctor lector phonic said we can giving his old friend, the thumbs up they embrace Hannibal, thanks sonic for killing beloved. Actor Brad Garrett for him. How would you like to stay for dinner? Sounds great Sanni exclaimed. He helped Hannibal carry Brad Garret back to animals creepy house in Baltimore. All the while Hannibal was deep in thought he doubted, sonic knew he was a cannibal even though it rhymes. And of course, he would never consider killing and slash or eating sonic. He only eight humans not hedgehogs. He wasn't a monster. Still sonic was down with murder, but hannibal's unclear on whether or not sonic would consider eating his victims. He shrugged knowing he would soon. Find out. While sonic waited at the dinner table hen will prepared a meal. Most elegant out of the six foot eight inches of Brad GARRETT'S body.

Hi. This is new because of the coronavirus. I'm currently staying at home in Rome were. My wife serves as the United States ambassador to the Holy See. She's leading the embassy in dealing with all the different changes being brought about by the. To bring you this episode this week I'm recording from my home, so you may notice a difference in audio quality. On this episode of Newt, Squirrel I have a new novel was released this week. Entitled Shake, Valerie, may vary inbred Garin fictional characters you met in my national best seller. Collusion are caught in the middle of deadly crisis with an impending nuclear bomb attack and little help from the government. WHO sideline them both. I'll talk about how the book is based on real life events, and how with every new novel right I'm always considering geopolitical events happening in the world and how to fictionalized. Pleased to welcome guests Pete early my co author of Shakedown and Dr Jeffrey. Mann Cup deputy director and senior fellow Russia and Eurasia Program at the center which teaching than the National Studies? People giving away too much. Applaud you actually found. An example of a Soviet plan. which was? Luckily carried out. What are you talking about? The Soviets themselves thought they were doing it which we can really the backdrop against which we agreed to do, shake in two thousand, one of the highest ranking Russians and Soviet. Intelligence defected. He was under Putin the FBI keping hidden for five years before they actually brought him out, and said Hey, this guy's defect or one of the things he told me when I interviewed for my book was about this really wild sounding plot to cause us of Nami by detonating a nuclear bomb off our coastline, and they would definitely cause significant damage. He claimed it. Their study showed it would flood these coast from Charleston South Carolina all the way to Boston. BOSTON, it would drown Washington DC in when you and I decided. We wanted to look into that. We discovered that actually began has an idea with the US military. One of the things we pride ourselves on is the amount of research we do. In fact, reviewers commented about unknown facts such now are appearing in books that are really kind of shocking, and there was a project called project seal in nineteen, forty four during the war where the US government thought. If we could weaponize Nami, this would be great and especially against Japan, and so they detonated. I think over thirty seven hundred bombs off the New Zealand coast trying to see if this would work. We abandoned that plan because. It or not, the government was putting it on the same level as studies for hydrogen bomb, and when the bomb became more reality, they put the Salami aside whether Soviets pick this up in the sixties. Luckily Nikita Khrushchev decided that it was too risky. The idea was that they were so napped with their submarines that they could do this off our coast with a nuclear bomb in a submarine and act like it was an accident, and that would give them an excuse to attack our country, and so that's kind of one of the major plots that we have in shakedown. Part of what makes it intriguing to me and brings it into the modern era is. We have a very significant role for the Iranians who clearly as we all know are routinely trying to find ways to hurt us, and who have opportunity to a very competent, and as you point out of the day we have this little challenge in that central Iranian figure had killed in Baghdad by the Americans a couple months ago, but they also tells you about how authentic are effort to portray? These people is that the guy has a different name obviously in Shakedown, but he really is model on the man who had been the lead planner for the Iranian. Terrorists were musician. I think twenty or twenty five years absolutely when I say it's based on research, what we did was look at videos of Soleimani and it was interesting, because he is very very calm when he spoke is very smart, but he was also very devious, and he intertwined religion, and we do that in the book to where we talk about passing, I think it's the Khyber flag, and that's a religious reference, and how that then means something to the Iranian people because Mohamed at one point was drafting an attack on the settlement. Settlement and none of the generals could do it. They were getting beaten back, and then all of a sudden God chose a foot soldier, and directed him to lead the attack, and so when you have somebody who's the head of the most notorious force against us. The coulds force leading this effort to destroy the United States and new intertwined the religion. Then it's gives you a better understanding which we try to convey in the book about why people believe this. We then have an overlap with the Russian oligarch, so you have. To America's most dangerous opponents finding reason collaborate, and in both cases without the official approval of government. In shakedown, we're really laying out for people. A way of thinking about the world that is really important that it's much more intertwined than people think it's much more complicated than people from the dangers it can emerge emerging ways. You haven't quite imagined as usual. The bureaucracy doesn't WANNA believe it. So we end up. Our to heroin triggers Brad Garrett and Bellary mayberry. has to operate in a sense beyond being independent agents in some ways they're mavericks who are outside the approval of the system. But if they didn't do what they did. We might have lost Baltimore Washington. And in a sense I think the model you and I have comes out of all the people we've known that are the Red Guards, and the Valerie may berries now. The people who do they think is right even if they're bureaucratic boss doesn't quite understand how to deal with. I think that's really a stupid point. And it's a point where incomes from the ground up. It comes from someone thinking outside the box in our last book collusion, we really painted a very accurate picture, of Putin and how he's willing to do just about anything for money, the relationship between the Russian government and these kind of satellite people who operate on their own. There's ties there. That aren't always obvious, and that's one of the things we tried to stress shakedown where you have a character whose old guard who really has. To the Kremlin, but no direct government position A. Weirdest stories I also learned from this defector Sergei. Tretyakov was right after the collapse of Soviet Union a group of Russian businessman. He cited they'd make millions of dollars by drilling I think it was three thousand holes in a area of Russia, that was off the Arctic coast that was used for nuclear testing. They're going to drill these holes or each going to be a thousand feet deep, and then they're going to drill a big hole right center. There were going to invite all the countries with nuclear waste to come in and dump all their nuclear waste in these holes. Then they were going to drop a hundred megaton bomb in the center of it and blow them all up and this was. As I approved by Putin and his people, and they were moving forward with it antill's. Some folks got wind and exposed it in the Canadian Press and they were shamed out of it, but my point is that there are a lot of really. Scary ideas involving nuclear devices that if they could make a profit, they had no problem moving forward. It's almost kind of shocking if you grew up in the Soviet Union. And your role model was Joseph Stalin. And you've been trained where the KGB. You probably have a different set of values than we do. And in parallel if you brought up in Iran as a genuine religious fanatic. And your entire model than build around I the founding, Ayatollah Khomeini and now the current Ayatollah Khomeini and You think that example, the tradition of your religion that lying to your enemy is totally appropriate in fact, almost a requirement. While you blend those two together. They both disliked America. The Russian wants to make money because being an oligarchy in Russia is very high value thing. The Iranian simply wants to hurt the united. States in a way that will make him look Royd home. We can still have done his duty. I think we try and shake down in collusion. We try to reach through for the reader to create an exciting adventure that accurately reflects the complexity. Desribed simple enough way that it's fun and it's interesting. It's good read, but we're introducing you to. A world is probably very different than the world of the Daily News. Channel Talk Shows. If you look shakedown, you'll see a connection. Iran Russia and China, but if you look specifically in the real world, one of the things that the defector told US intelligence and told me later in the book. Was that the? Main inspector for the atomic energy sent in to make sure Iran was keeping his promises was a Russian controlled person, and he's still in office. He had been recruited by the defector who said I recruited this guy. He's a Russian asset and he's the one who is making reports back on. Whether Iran is complying and July of two thousand eighteen massad. Broke into a warehouse in Taran and they took out a half ton of secret materials. It was amazing operation. They did it without getting caught. They cut through thirty two Iranian safes. They hauled out over fifty thousand pages of documents, hundred, sixty, three, compact, this and the Israeli prime minister showed this information to president trump and just proved that the Iranians were being deceptive and that they were intent on resuming bomb production because. Because these were all important documents about how to move forward with their program how to go ahead and build a nuclear weapon that was almost certainly larger, more sophisticated and better organized than any of US suspected, and so what we're trying to shake down and say yeah, this is a exciting adventure story, but guess what it is rooted in something that you should be aware of, and that should quite frankly alarm you.

Fox presented IHEART living room concert for American. Joined the biggest artists in the world, as we celebrate the power, resiliency and compassion of our nation, watch it live on Fox this Sunday, nine pm. Eastern six PM Pacific and listen I heart radio FM stations across America and on the iheartradio APP Another thing I really like about shakedown. We really focus on submarines and I. Think the American public needs to be aware of two things I. Think one is the rising danger with Soviet technology you know after the spy John Walker and his buddy Jerry Whitworth gave up so many secrets in a lot of them had to do with submarines. The Russians really intensified their efforts to make stealth submarine, and we discovered last year that they really had succeeded. Succeeded we found out that one of their submarines actually spent a month in the Gulf of Mexico and nobody knew it, and this is very troubling because the closest way you get to the United States is with a submarine. That's why the northwest passage in all these things are so important because submarines from Russia with out they hide in the fields, and then they would come out and sneak down our coast. We have lost some of our ability. Because this stealth technology, the other thing that we point out in the book. Is that again? The Walker spy case gave up. And that was an underwater microphones. All along key points outside our nation, these hydrophones I could actually hear submarines coming once the walkers told them about these hydrophones they went around and start destroying them, and we had to come up with an underwater integrated undersea surveillance system and one of the characters in our book talks about, and this was based on an actual statement. How under the old system? If a whale farted, we would know about it well. We don't know about it now, and that's very troubling, Steph. Carley creates the sense of believability that shakedown could occur. The ocean is enormous, and it's actually much harder to track ships. Is To track aircraft. And, so the total number of ships and they give members solar enormous, that is pretty easy to lose somebody in the noise and one of the characteristics of the submarine is the effort to be able to hide within merchant ships, so that their noise surrounds the submarines noise, and because you're picking up the merchant ship. You don't notice if there's anything else in the area and this very practice that goes back to world. War Two. Is tendency to really overestimate aren't capable. And underestimate both the capabilities of our opponents, but also their determination. The Nazis. Who used to put their submarines? Merchant ships to cross the straight into the Mediterranean and so we know about these things I'd been to Moscow and I've talked to their leaders, and they see us as their number, one enemy and in Iran on certain. It's even worse based on the. To, see coming out of there and we have to be aware of this part of the challenges which tended indicate. Shakedown the people that you paid to be paranoid arts if you've been studying to separate twenty or thirty years in A. Bureaucratic Environment. You don't think about. How dangerous it could be because it hasn't been. And, so it's easy to say well. Let's not overreact in shakedown. They are going to go out there and you're gonNA. Do if is a believe in it and if their boss doesn't get. Breaking, the all the attitude look. If you have to fire without, it'd be okay but I'M GONNA? Do my duty as I see it. My hope is when people. shakedown though both get a sense dangerous, the world is the dossier. Get a sense of how important it is to call to debate. Encourage a heroic patriots who are willing to risk their career as well as their lives, and sometimes you now it takes more courage to career. Your life because. When risking your life, you normally have people in your side with you. When you risking career, you often are the people closest to you against you. One is on proudest. WHO's a with Brad?

Thanks for joining today. I wanted to have you on loser so much and shake out. There is inspired by real life events and I thought you could give us some insights. Russian threats given in your area. That's release. Base shakedown on to big ID is one that there was a study done. By the US and we believe picked up on by the Soviets. Twenty years later. That you could in fact quit Assu Nami. A hydrogen weapon. Underwater this was a very serious project. Thing only decided not to. And then second, we suggest that. You could have a natural alliance between the Iranian. Jr and the Russians, because each has a vested interest in. Trying to find a way to weaken us. When you think about how the world's evolving. How do you see the development of Russia relationship with the countries? For a lot of the Russian elite. The Cold War is. A model in the sense. That Soviet Union was a country that had to be taken. seriously. The United States couldn't take any major decision anywhere in the world without taking the Soviet response into consideration that framework crumbled once the Soviet Union was no longer around. We tried to preserve elements of it in the early nineties by just a couple of years into the post Soviet period. It was clear that the US was not. Inclined to consider itself constrained by. Russian views the way that it was constrained by Soviet views before nineteen ninety one. In his. Notorious Munich speech in two thousand seven, Putin said one country United States overstepping its bounds in all areas, and to can feel safe and who likes this nobody in by nobody. He really meant Russia, but I think what we've seen in recent years as Russia has been effective at. Working with other partners who dislike acre, uncomfortable with the idea of unconstrained American power, the one that gets the most attention of course as China whose views of the international system in US leadership different than Russia's, but they intersect enough that they're some opportunities for the to work together. Russia's also been able to partner to varying degrees with Iran I think Iran is an interesting example because that's a very complicated relationship Russia has been for the most part very consistent in opposing Iran's efforts to nuclear capability and certainly nuclear weapons, but in a lot of other ways has sought to position itself as A. Partner for Tehran? Certainly they're working together in Syria where they have a shared interest in propping up the Assad government in limiting the ability of the US to establish a toehold in Syria, but at the same time they have other areas where their interests don't align. Russia and Iran are still rivals, so it's it's a complicated relationship, but to the extent that it focuses on shared concern about the United States, Russia and Iran, the naval to work together one of the. Notion that you could also have. People operating on their own to certain extent. We have moved in a rainy and. Who is part of the could force, but also. has his own interest in zone. Hatred of America. We have a Russian oligarch who has? Allied with Putin but not automatic. This Servian is your sense. All the oligarchs are perfectly aligned with Moore other some who are potentially independent actors. What was living in Russia in one thousand, nine hundred ninety s, people became oligarchs. Own and they used wealth as a means of getting political power. It was a bunch of oligarchs who got together and basically. Convinced Yeltsin to make Putin successor. To, wealth was a route to power. Since Putin has been president, it's really flit. And now power has largely become a pass to wealth so the people in important positions in the Kremlin and around us that access as the means of controlling the flow of revenue and enriching themselves and their families and their patriots, some of the older oligarchs have managed to keep their wealth by sort of towing the proper political line, or just sort of staying out optics. So, they're not all necessarily doing the Kremlin's bidding, but their. Wealth? Their freedom are all contingent on Kremlin approval. If they crossed the line, and they do things that the Kremlin disapproves of, they can lose it all. This is what happened to Michael. Cutter Kaczynski, who is the head of the Yukos oil company which is Russia's largest private oil company? He got involved in politics and was funding various opposition groups including the Communists. He wanted to build a headline that the. The Kremlin didn't want built by private company, and in response he was arrested. His company was dismantled. He spent ten years in Siberia been then was eventually let go and kicked out of country, and he was kind of a cautionary tale, so the remaining oligarchs in Russia. They sort of understand that there are limits to what they can and can't do you Jinping. Taking the saying that is closest friend. Internationally, was Hooton. I think they've met twenty sometimes in the last three years. They just did a very large. Military exercises together. How much of that's real? And how much sort of purposes? As China in particular has adopted, a more adversarial approach vis-a-vis the United States. There's been more sino-russian cooperation around some of these issues of global order, but nonetheless the underlying insecurities between Russia and China most. The Russian side still exists so the Russian military is still worried about the fact that China is modernizing pretty rapidly Russia has a trade deficit with China yet exports, mostly raw materials, oil gas timber foodstuffs, minerals than it imports finished goods and industrial goods. It's not a relationship of equals, and the Russians understand that they understand that. In an ideal world, they wouldn't tie themselves tightly to China I really appreciate you taking the time to.

They connect with the messages that they were ready. That isn't weird because that is feeding like two different entities. That's a real dark and then real life. Wow. You were straight of ballot.

Our guest today super funny, man got rave reviews. Tony Rome tweets us. Freddie says George I'm brother, but I thoroughly enjoyed the. Segment with the Latin flavor, you should do the show more often with Freddie, prints junior and a random Latin guest has to have you just saying Orlando in every time he's in Los Angeles lives here. So Joe he should be here. All the time. He has a humility and an honesty that you can relate to and it's and you almost get mad at yourself for not thinking of the joke. Fresh man, I've done that. He just has a good finger on the pulse. So that kind of life. I mean, you know, this you've grown up in Egner Tate like to me. This is like I was joked radio is the lowest rung of entertainment, which, but I think it's fun. Because of that, it's the first at the lowest what we're introduced I, but to have a guy that you that you worked with right like he was a camera operator at a TV station, and like he's got an HBO special. And I've known him for over a decade. Like, I can't be happier for someone like that George. It takes so much guts to step on that state. That's the hardest thing to do for dolph Ziglar the professional wrestling, Nick. That's funny, self Sigler. Nick, I was there when they named him and me and one other guy fought against it. We lost. But anyway, he had where you're gonna name. I don't remember. No, probably just Nick. John CENA's John seen right is true. So he has a show tomorrow night at the comedy store, and he's been doing comedy now for the last like year and a half and is starting to kill it. It takes so much guts to there's some people who were born to be a comedian. Right. Like they knew that's what they wanted to do. But when you decide to do comedy as a second chapter in your life almost like Sally field tried to do in that movie punchline. The there was still good moments that is ten times harder because you're out of the game. Like guys like feel von I mean, he came from like a road rules real world challenge in the comics dumped on him. Right. Oh, same way. I'm sure they tried to block Orlando out because they don't know in. They're not familiar, and when you break through and make it on the tonight show with Jimmy Fallon like that's where my dad made his bones. He was nineteen years old and Johnny Carson said, hey, kid. I'm gonna put you on the tonight show. Right. We call them over to the couch yet. Yeah. That the move. He loved my dad so much. He let my dad host the show at twenty one took a night off. Yeah. And my dad brought on Paul Williams who still to this day little Polian and George Foreman, right and Georgia just lost a Muhammad Ali. And my dad and George reenacted the fight in Zaire. My dad did a money all the impression. George led him. Knock my let my dad knock him out. And then they had him on his a guest. So imagine a six foot four George Foreman. And a four foot ten Paul Williams on the couch next. That's the kind of moment that can change an actor's career and really project him. And I I wish arlando all the best. I hope you guys check out a show tonight. It's Friday night. If you ain't going out. Yeah. That's. Watch man. For sure for sure. Life can get good. Speaking of rough. It's been rough for the Lakers the last five years, and it's nice church things. Yeah. It's gotten better. I think has gotten a lot better. We need to bring up how hard it's been over the last five years. Let's live in the Mon. Right. Let me say something right now before we go any further before the season started and LeBron James signed every single thing. You said was gonna happen has happy and everybody freaked out. And they were like when they were lose. All my gosh. What's this? What's this? You already said that was going to happen. Then they would he would start to sort of put himself into positions to see like what you had what this player had what this player had for him. You said that before it happened. Then you said they get to five hundred right around this time, boom. They get to five hundred right around this time this I have zero fear. I have I don't even care when they lose. Because it's it's still so early in the season, but everybody every Laker. Fan has seen. Lebron James say I'm not losing this game. And every time he hasn't lost that game pretty much. And that's. That's what happens when you have the best player in the world. I mean when he went from forty four the other night, that's the guy that you know, he's made. Conscious decision. It's not just like a young player who gets in the groove. And all of a sudden they hit six threes. And then the next night there over six this is a guy when he decides. Okay. I feel good tonight. I'm gonna make sure we don't lose this game. You don't lose that game. That's and that's create now. Look if he's planning a top team. Yeah. It's the warriors of four of the top twenty players difference. We've been playing you've seen him just be like nuts office Acilitator later. So the best way to describe it with him is. And I kinda saw when this happened, right? Because I was there at his lowest moment, and again, look, I don't know. Lebron like I'd say this all the time. I don't know him. I just have been around him enough to no longer. But I saw him as low lowest moment when they lost the Dallas. And after that he worked on his game. And you know, they won the championship. And then that next year the second championship that's where he kind of became Neo almost of the matrix where you could just see it all go like and his head. He's like I'm seeing the game way before anything happens. You could just see how much he could see the game. It's funny. That's the last time he showed immaturity. Right. If you remember Dirk was sick and coughing and never let he's never done anything like that sense. Well, and you remember huge. I think humbling grow up moment and even when they lost that series. He talked about after the fact he was mad because everyone had been dumping on him as the most hated being that. And I don't do gives money the boys and Girls Club. Couldn't these you. Look, it didn't bother like, wait. Like he didn't care. You know what I mean? I think it was different because he played with shack like for a long time. Well, not law, but Malas ones Kobe but long enough, right? We're shack rubbed off on Dwayne to the point. Like don't be listening to. None of that ring. Right. Was different was more of a made man and in that series at the end like he snapped at people like, yeah. Everybody can go back to their miserable lives in nominal live mine, and it was like whoa had enough. But he had learned from that. And then the next year was a championship. But that third year he was legitimately Neil. He was stopping bullets like the things. It was he shot. I want to say he shot over forty percent from three and almost he was close to sixty percent from the floor that year. And it was like, oh now we see what this dude really is. Yeah. Man, ever since then he's just he he learned after that to kind of pace himself better. And I think that because he was getting older he was at that point twenty eight twenty seven twenty s a decade in the legal show. He was and that's where he is. So now, he's not going to look he's going to expend certain amount of injure energy during the regular season. And then there are nights like the other night where he's just it'd be like, I'm feeling it. And let's go and get your forty four ten and nine, and that's the LeBron James that I've come to see over the last several years. It's just he understands the big picture and look Laker fans could get this too. And I know it used to drive Kobe crazy but shack was kind of like that in the regular season. Two shack was like, you know, you know, the status of the free throws, right? Count. And you know, I mean, they should all counts. But you know, whatever he didn't expend himself in the regular season. Everything you just say God dumped, we don't speak against you. And that's that's it. You don't put that on me. It's dead air. Dead and expensive stuff in the regular season. Because he knows there's too much energy. It needs to be expended in the postseason shack diesel doesn't floor it on a trip across the country. The shack diesel puts it on cruise control every once in a while to save fuel sort in the last stretch. The shag diesel can make some bonus cry right can make them cry. Right. He can dunk implanted Sean that was my favorite rap that he ever did was when he don't out pointed, Sean, so they're actually a lot of like in a lot of ways LeBron shack. They're both very cognizant of what their words mean. Yeah, there neither is an alpha. Personality, you know, they are absolutely the type of guy that knows that when they do say something there's beaning behind it. And like, they're not they know how everyone's going to react to whatever. Whatever it is. They say they're more, right? Brain hypoc, gosh, creative thinking, there could be some passive aggressiveness. Beta personalities about so they have a lot of things in common. Not you know. And look, I even think on the court. I think they have things in common, for example. They were talking about this on forgot what show I was watching. But they were talking about ozone on the jump. They were talking about how LeBron doesn't get enough calls. And of course, he doesn't he's six eight hundred seventy pounds. He's built like Karl Malone and he plays like, you know, you can be as fleetest footage. Jordan was so it's unbelievably difficult to officiate him much. Like it was unbelievably difficult to officiate shack. John Ireland's said this forever. Every play shack scored on. He was either fouled or he fouled someone every play his entire career that somebody was guarding him in the post. It was impossible. But shack is a guy who literally changed the rules that the NBA place. That's why I always had said he's the most dominant player ever over anyone because the rules literally had to change. Yeah. They're like. Yeah. You're. So we're changing the real for sure. And another thing they have in common is like you watch those two dudes year get a chance to go in the locker room after game. They've got scratches all over themselves like people are just like clinging onto them just to try to foul them because you have to use that kind of force to bring them down potential. Yeah. A lot of times you see like LeBron rushing. And you see the guys try to foul him. And you hear the commentators go all you got to follow him harder than that. How good luck? He's bigger than Brian road lacquer and it runs faster than Todd Gurley. And he's ripped and six percent, Bruce Lee body fat. And oh, yeah. He crossed me up twice on the way. They're like it's just too much, man. So FREDDY this season has been good. But next season can be better. I heard you mentioned this with Mason the other day when O'Shea was in your, you know, magic had the promo right? You key? We're back this year. And then we're we're back back and then we're back back back three backs. So three backs for three players. I think that the hot there's a hot rumor out there right now on like the Lakers getting a big three Mike is a party pooper on it will let Mike kinda give his pooper on the back back back representing three players south rather be bad that not rather be back back back back back, and we'll tell you what that means on the other side, a great. That's a great teeth. Go so Donald show here on a Friday feel Good Friday with Freddie prince junior. Hello. Yes, sir. Hanging out today. Paul Pierce gonna stop by at six thirty. They've got he's going begin here. That's cool. I never met Paul. Yeah. Even though is a Celtic we're gonna show him some then, but it didn't play for us. It doesn't. So we were talking about the Lakers and the big rumor hot rumor that's out there right now. Thanks to Jared, Jack who played I believe in nineteen or eight teams in the NBA ton eight nine if you count pelicans and horn horn. Yes. Yeah. And he played for well over a decade. He played for like fifteen years almost on that Golden State championship team. He just missed just wanted to be a starter somewhere. He just missed them. You think he regrets that? Yeah. Man. But he didn't get paid the same way. No paid the next stop and he still played forever. So he's gonna make his money. Right. Nice to have a ring. That's true. I'm with you. But I just I'm curious. You know, not everyone is motivated the same way. So the hot room the Jared, Jack put out there yesterday was and I have the tweet here. So I wanna make sure I read it, right? He said. Here. It is. He said man, if you all the league was at troll before they're about to mess around and have AD K D And Braun all on the same team. And he's got the emoji with you know, the hand in front of his face shake my head. Yeah. Yeah. SMH, basically. And he said so guy challenge is you don't believe that do you. And he said eight months, quote me. So he believes is going to happen. It can happen financially. It all works itself out. They can sign Kevin Durant to their cap space, and they could trade for Anthony Davis. If that's indeed we're Anthony Davis wants to go don't they have to match salary in that trade? They have to get within ninety percent of the salaries, so basically all the young guys and somebody that fills the cap space. Yep. Feel like you might lose one of your big guys if you do that. But for Anthony Davis. I mean, listen Davis. Kevin durant? Anthony Davis and LeBron. I don't care who the other dudes. You don't have to trade for K D. You only have to trade for Anthony. Davis trade Jill and to youngsters three youngsters a four play four players. Would you send over there? You'd have to send all the young guys Lonzo brand all of them, Josh heart. Not josh. Now, they all gotta go, man. Not hard. I mean, if you're New Orleans are you serious like you're not gonna you have to dig them all like you have to say to them. Yeah. I want all they gave us Chris Paul vir- old Powell Gonzalo and Lamar Odom who. Don't have to give them nothing, man. They already. Zach this David Stern these days. So yeah, I think that they're going to have to do that they're going to have to absolutely give them everything. I wouldn't. I would give them all of them Davis, David, drafty. Whoa. They've been drafting really, well, you can find more young guys to work in there that can learn quick, obviously, the developing talent quickly I want to hear from from our fantastic producer that Orlando said, smells, so sweet. He says he wouldn't you wouldn't want three of the best players in the world on the same team. So get this. He draws the line, right? He's okay with Anthony Davis right line Davis. I will pick him up at the airport, Burbank or LAX -tario doesn't matter. I'll pick them up. Okay. Okay. Let's not three year old and a car. What if Kevin Durant said the airport standing right next to him K D with all due respect. He's got a lot of respect for you. But she got. What's why? What do you have an issue with? I don't have an issue with Katie. I'm seriously seriously. I don't want you to get that twisted. I have major respect for the do. I think he's the top guy in the league right after LeBron. Why on the Lakers because I just don't as a Laker fan. I enjoy being passionate about my team. I can't be passionate about a guy that left. Okay. See to join a team that beat him. Right. That's fine. I'm over that. I think we're all over that most of us, but you went to championships maybe three, and then you come a little bit down south to LA it. Then you go battle against the guys you just want three championships with to me as a Laker fan that isn't like fun for me. I can not yours per se. I is this. The Lakers have never been about ours. We always gone outside the organization found the biggest stars stole them. What's what is wrong with claimed them? What's wrong with just ADS? But what's wrong with back back back? Thank you. You just want back back. Yes. Why don't you back back back? Just to me. Look if he comes here. Of course, I have to deal with that. We were. To goal. Games. I have to follow them. We have to talk about it. But as a Laker fan it waters down my phantom. I have to I have to Dell with going to three birthday parties for my kids in one day. That's something I have to deal with Iraq. I don't have to deal because this careers the net Korea's my career to follow this team. That would be awesome to follow those guys. No, no, not yet. Would it would be like not it would legitimately be? Okay. I was there when he played with Bosch, and Wayne people that that was crazy if he played with K D And Anthony Davis that would be twenty times. Great. Then what it was when he was in the dream team. It'll be great, man. But as far as as a Laker fan. I just don't see any entertainment in that. Okay. Mic. Let me ask you this. He's going to be too easy that I'm not saying to easy. I just Durant is a warrior to me. He's a warrior. He got really even willing a chance the jerseys off when you went to championships. Maybe three almost you. He's not is he considered a thunder war is more. You're right is Karima buck or a Laker both. But really like. Durant and particularly with both. I know, but, but that's not my thing is is just okay, we're going to battle the warriors for you just play with the warriors. Let's see what he, but he's beefing with dreams cheap adds to Tony. So it really comes down to who has the best general manager who has the best player that can get katie's head to get them to their team, and who has the money to pay K D in this becomes about K D And not the Lakers. Well, he's the most powerful guy in the NBA right now, Katie and it's a players league. But would you rather see the Lakers win on a last second like three or win by ten or more every night? What would you rather? See more every night. Yeah. I don't get it. I'm giving you that I'm giving, you know, close games. Will be because I'm a guide every specs history at the Tel. I'll have to tell my kid one day, and they can say Karima book tell me you respect history who wanted to championship this year. And that year, I was like, well, it's a guy named Kevin Durant. He pretty much the championships followed him. Okay. Okay. So it's more about K D And not the Lakers themselves. Yes, that's true. But. And look, I don't know this because I'm not a millennial. But you know, I read all these people who write about millennials like they act like they know about them, and maybe millennials can help us out and have the conversation with us. But the there it's alleged that they don't have as much loyalty as maybe we did when we grow up. So that's why they're more transient right where it comes to jobs or even rooting interest for sports and things of that nature. And look he's part of that like that's his that's the era. He's grown up with. And by the way, he has every right to do it. And if you're the Lakers, you need to try to assemble the best team you possibly can that is Magic Johnson sole purpose? So adding Kevin Durant to Anthony Davis. And LeBron if that indeed is the case like this rumor says that they're trying to do then men mission accomplished. Unless you're Mike. Yeah. Denison, blah. It's a loss as a loss season. Eight seven seven seven ten ESPN is Mike a party pooper. Basically is the question here. Eight seven seven seven ten ESPN, Freddie. Princeton the house is to sit down and show here on ESPN LA.

How nearly the middleman? Yeah. You know, how on this show like all do a joke. And then you'll say an injustice will laugh at it.

A stretch goal where if we had thirty thousand new and upgrading donors for the maximum fund drive. I wanna get four big men to stand on the soundboard with all of their way.

I Griffin you have transitioned directly into I think a perfect opening for this episode of ever read the brother made its issues them. What? Okay. Zam? The movie is is is coming in April fifth. Now, there looks like there might be some seek preview showings, Huntington area looking at some early reconnaissance that I have here. I I've already seen it. And let me tell you my favorite part of the movie. Yeah. Is that every so often someone will be walking around with his AM and song will start playing on the radio overhead and people look at him and say what us song, and he has an encyclopedic knowledge of what the song is inches. Zam man trav-, you gotta know that's a stinker. And this is the episode this episode where you ask people for case. Oh, I get it. Because it's like how Boise travel you thought your pot committed to the stinky out because it's a real thing happens on the move. I know, but it's sick relieve is a boy who gets bigger fide into a superhero, and there's a lot to play with their. But you made a apt pun like a young like a bait. Like a teen dad. I sure did. Can we talk about the muscles? The muscles on the Zachary Levi costume of shit. Zam Zam is a story about a beautiful boy who's learning all about being a teen. And he transforms into Chuck sometimes the power of lightning is harnessed eats spicy food when ISA spicy food. He transforms into Chuck from this shared shock, and he just gets crazy on it. And he is having so many fun adventure. I could tell from the previews. He also brings even though he is now a superhero boy with immense ability and strength or whatever brings a normal human boy with him into dangerous situation as I can tell you is bringing a another young boy who's just learning about his teenage Roddy. To eat to get a big adult body. Yeah. Well, come with me danger. I guess where there's guns isn't stop. Well, your superpowers make me also invincible. I don't know. Maybe we'll find out, but whenever you know, criminal threatens Zam he uses his big adult Chuck body to kill them with his strength. And I love it. My favorite thing takes a dark turn never really deal with that. But I our man has killed a lot of people with his rockets and lasers. Yeah. He was an adult. He was a jaded fair fair fair kinship Zam vote. I hope there's a scene about that in the movie where he uses his greatest superpower. The ability to vote. There is a protracted scene where she dies. I. He it's about fourteen minutes long dies of an undiagnosed liver infection, and it is extremely sad. It's right in the middle of the fight. And he just dies. Yeah. One weakness and then origins at the end is torso explodes open, and the boy climbs out, and it's very much. It's very much attack on titan, which you didn't expect except instead of big scary. It is actually Levi's huge adult body. I love it. A big scary Lebai. I love it. It takes them a long time to get through the suit because it's made, you know, super stuff. I have a question. Yeah. Which is to coming out. Yeah. That's what's on my plate. Right now is I feel like I've already absorbed every part of this. And I would love to know win Schimdt to do when to coming few months. It's out in June. You're doing another one year signed up for. So the second one is just called Zam two colon pukes. And this one's mostly about. The pubic experience there is okay.

Morris of pubic hair, roughly thirteen minutes here. Olden off camera. Don't worry. It's very tasty to watch. It's beautiful boyfriend his friend, boy, the young boy brings danger with him sits in an adjacent continues to turn up the television louder and louder to try to cover the sound of his friend marvel. Now, I see why people call it a Bush. I bet it's invincible. It looks like the prickly mulberry Bush outside of my mom's house because mom and dad are divorced. And I can't put them back together with my superpowers. Vo these pews though. Don't turn up Maury Povich. Listen to me. It's got a lot of heart. Are you v? Get there.

That was my girlfriend, and I went out for brunch at a diner near her home to find it was much busier than usual where we get a table and enjoy your meal with only slight delays. But it appears we've been forgotten and our check isn't coming. We've been served by a rotating cast. So we're not sure her to even ask and all the servers are moving at lightning speed of hours full plate. So interrupting them seems like a bad idea. What is our next move? Do. We died in dash from place. We really like it would like to return to do we live in this diner? Now that's from munch money misgivings. In minneapolis. This is you know, that Dinan dash is not an option. Right. It's twenty nineteen and it's not twenty fifteen and so that's not an option anymore because the government the GPS there's dine and dash and then get followed by satellites does the there's the Natalie. Of the nets in the Meatloaf. Yes. There's there's an Anna tech in all foods. So that's Justin's brand. Now, you know, not to dine. And dash. I don't know what to tell you on this. These people are doing their jobs, and you gotta just assert yourself in squeaky wheel it and go get your own fucking. Check just punch it into the machine. It's easy. What table are you see today at lookout the number of tables around the room, whatever number you, lay dot EDU. Stop is years, and you go up, and you tap that number now, what's the dollar signs say fifteen dead skid. That's how much you do it for. And if it's not yours, then you just paid it forward. And it also kind of sounds like they're super busy. Maybe once you're done ringing in urine. Check, maybe grab a train and maybe buses table or get your fucking hands dirty by which I mean Duncombe in the soup and start just giving it to people. Yeah. What's that order up? Here's a handful of soup oath. Thank you. I've been waiting for ten minutes from my soup when the outback steakhouse manager comes out and says you got. Gotta stop. You. Gotta stop you guys say, well, if you're not going to fill this charge that you've been given then you can't complain when somebody else decides to do your fucking dirty work broaddrick. And when broddrick trust afire, you you say are you ready to pay my unemployment because I haven't been given any written warnings yet. So if you jump right? The termination I'll see you in court. There is we give a lot of Gulf too. We have a lot of to cash dirty filthy money. But there is something to be said for the ability of being able to figure out how much your meal is calculated tip and then just leaving money. Yeah. Just walk. You could bolt whatever you want to. Yeah. When you look at your money, and you think it's disgusting because statistically every dollar has been touched by a bug at some point. Yuck. But you gotta look at it like they're awesome blossom coupons. Awesome. Their tickets to an awesome blossom experience, and you can just leave them on the table and skedaddle and not worry about it. You know, I've been a waiter server slash hosts several times at different places. And I think that if like I had a table full of people, and then I looked over and they were gone. I would immediate. Oh, am I go with the table? And be like, oh, there's like three twenties here that could be fan. I guess maybe the money is in like phys. Ical form. I hope they enjoyed their most or whatever I wish had been four twenty s grab a good. There's four twenty year. Good at that. To have to delete yours. Jesse UK with that. Yeah. Didn't I don't remember having one. So it won't be missed. Yeah. I think that proves asked an answer how about a yacht who I'd love that dude. Here's a love it Adrian calcium. This one. Get out here. All right. As asked by go gee fan who asks if you raise a crocodile since it's birth. Will it ever turn on? You know, next question, Justin, you have an opinion. No are as long as it doesn't taste human flesh. Yeah. It does once and that's pretty much the ball game. I think that's true of most animals though. Yeah. Pets at least don't let that turtle get an app. Oh, God eve we've all seen him the videos of the people who grew up with the lions or rather the lines grew up with them. And then they don't see the lines grip. And then they come back and see the lines lions charge at them. And you're like fuck, you know, right? You we go. But then they just hugged him. I don't know that a crocodile is gonna do this. I don't know that a crocodile is going to be like you Davis in the run up to you and scaly arms around your your your. The soft supple neck. I don't think we're gonna get exchange. I've always loved you, Brian. I don't know. I'm I don't know how crocodile shows affection except for not running fast at you and snapping its big jaws. Do you ever think whenever I see like, those unlikely animal friends, and it's like a lion Galab Rodrigo? All. I could think is that the labrador retrievers like, yeah, we're friends. Fuck what do we look at this thing? Play with the poll. The fun thing about the. Likely. Fred animal friends is that every time you see one of those. No that the beginning of that story is some cat. Who's like, I don't know. Maybe fuck it. I'm drunk, although for every like, one of those you see there's eighteen the didn't quite pan out that they just didn't click on a friend level. I'm trying to think of what a crocodile friend is. And I'm thinking about these birds that right on the crocodiles back sometimes just chilling in the middle of the lake the swimming pool. And then I think that's the only one that they're going to get because if a bird can feel the wind changing can feel a single drop sweat forming on their crocodile friend there crocodile life, partner below them. And know that the Trump is coming, and then they can immediately leave upwards they can leave in a direction that the crocodile cannot follow. I feel like it's a lot more like dread pirate Roberts at that point. Like almost likely kill you in the morning like cuckoo. I'm going to sit here. So I don't have to keep flying. I'm tired truly tied. All right. I used to love playing rock band and guitar hero. When I was a kid recently dug out my old, I'm sorry. They've a curse word here. But I'll say it shitty.

Can I be personal moment? Personally, lemme open why heart like she's Zam and let my little kid inside out. All right. I keep a boy in my chest K. What do you what do you say here? Now, that's what I wanted to keep them, bullying my g's travel. What I would be able to do that. If it weren't for donors. So you're a you're a broad shouldered, gentlemen. So I could see somebody meet David with Larry. Comfort. You have also gone with crying. I would have given you that. Yeah. I think there's a thing in men in black where there's a person's person's just anyways, we are all at this point full-time, professional podcasters. And the only reason we are able to do that is because of donors because of max von drive in the max fun donors, and it's one of those things where tweeted about this last week, but I do about every four weeks, fourteen episodes of content for max fun, and that's a lot. But the reason I do that. And the reason I care about it so much I know how much it matters to you. You know, I see people tweet about it all year and people show it to our shows. But during max fund drive, I get this big burst of inspiration. Because I see all these people saying this is why this matters to me. This is why love max von this is why I love my brother, my brother, and me and the adventures and solvents Shriners, wonderful and trends, like bees and still. Offering and that just a fills me with so much joy and gratitude and horny power and horny power. And that horsepower is what fuels me for another year that horny fire in my soul keeps me going. Yeah. I think what Travis is trying to say is you can support the things that you care about. And that you want to be in the world. And that support means the world to us. Even no matter what level it is. We get a lot of tweets from people saying like sorry, I can only do five dollars a month. That's huge. That is that is you advocating for the stuff that we make. And that's like the most meaningful thing that you can do for a creator, and you've been so kind to us in the past with your your donations in your support. So if you just started listening, or maybe you're listening to more shows on the network consider donating you get to pick the shows you went to directly support and your your money will go to them and. Yeah. This is this is the time of year where just think about you know, what you have gotten out of the shows that we make. And if you have the means and you feel comfortable doing so go to maximum fun dot org slash donate. And get those great rewards like the bonus content at five bucks, or the the pins at ten bucks. There's there's a lot of options there. This is also the best time to upgrade your donation. Maybe get a member for a while. And you know, you've started listening to more shows or they fill the even more important part of your life. Whatever, you know. Maybe you got a big raise at work, or whatever, you know. Maybe it's time to bump up from five to ten or ten to twenty. And when you do you will also get some of those new wards for this year. And I also want to say one last thing for move onto other questions. I know that not everybody can donate. You know, there was a time in my life where five dollars a month was out of the question for stuff like this. But you can still help out by going to Twitter or Instagram, or whatever social media, you use and share. On the link maximum fund dot org Ford slash donate. And use the hashtag Mets fund drive and tell people why they should donate on why the show's matter and why you know, like, if you have a friend who, you know, listen to the show, and, you know, maybe say to them like, hey, did, you know, the max fun drives going on and make sure that they know about it all those things really help us out. Can we just talk real quick about the the bonus? Just I kind of the bonus concert go for you can give five dollars a month. Just our shows. Right.

We also played Lynn and us played dragons one time, and he was a barred, and it was really fun, and there's just like so much great stuff in there, and you get access to all of it for donating five bucks a month. And it would. And it just I think it it would really mean a lot to us one last thing, and I'm recording this after the fact that you can't tell because we forgot to mention it. We are going to do a few other stretch goals for numbers we hit as you know, the whole max fund community for this drive. The first thing maybe relevant if you know, the history of my brother, my brother, and me and our. Are failures at twelve thousand five hundred new upgrading max fund members which is half of our station wide goal of twenty five thousand we're going to put out the may the fourth Star Wars Episode that we did live at the Troy the Detroit disaster episode.

And that's not gonna happen without your help. It's kind of this this fucking pressure Lewis. It continues the ads there's going to be ads during March madness for the the ads includes some of the most famous March madness reaction memes from recent years. Oh that sounds pretty good from recent years like the what just happened WALE featuring John Phillips a diehard northwestern fan and viral sensation from the two thousand seventeen NCWA tournament. All right. It's just like, yeah. You advertising are you advertising the memes that are in your thing is that what's going on. I guess this is a guy who got sad in a way that everyone really liked and so because of him I will eat pizzas. I get so hungry seeing other people's disappointment sadness. Yeah. It was sad in a way that I thought I founded attaining a big way. So I did make me hungry for your pizza zone. Yes. Empathy really gets me salivating. I'm just trying to find a clip of this fucking this fucking sound like this wail that apparently so funny. They've gotta use it to sell pizza cows zones. What happened with the what happened way I'm not living on until I can find it just warning you now the first thing that comes up for me is an article from the natural history museum says what happens to whale when it dies. It's probably not that. Right. I'm reading about a whale prison guide. Like the first result is just this kid. This kid is just a Jif. It's just a Jif. I mean, it's just a different kid who sat about that's good like. It's just a gym. I want to watch. This guy gets sad and have a fun time. I'm gonna put it in the thing. It's just it's nothing. It's your two thousand seventeen this kid's got a home in three kids. What what what what what is marketable about that? He's really he's genuinely sad. He's the son of the athletic director of the losing team. I imagine he's quite upset about his father's, you know. You know, his father steeple sports too. This watching this child. This has no re tweets and no likes. Yeah. There was somebody Pizza Hut who very much enjoyed watching this boy watch his father get sports defeated and thought that it's going to sell mad zones. It's just you came. So the northwestern kid, I guess thing. He was just really sad about the sports. Yeah. He was just a sample. It's just a sad. Boy who is sad about the game. Anyway. Everyone. My dad got fired from the radio station and fell down a flight of stairs on his way out. And I cried, and then someone took a picture of that. And then they started selling big Macs with it. Okay. This this goes on to brag about book, it it says the literacy project, you know, book it read books, get free pizza. It says here in partnership with a Phillips who is oh Phillips. I guess the boy the crying boy. Game. I read a bunch of books. They're partnering with the boy to revive equal access to books and education resources Pizza Hut is donating twenty thousand dollars. You shouldn't have you made that five minutes ago. You fuck owes really twenty thousand dollars pizza, are you sure? They're making the sad. Boy, pay for it. Got a word. It's savings. It's not a wash bitches at a Pizza Hut. Girfriend you had all all lined up for us before I so rudely interrupted. Yes. So I have who here that was sinning by Kaelin. Thanks kaelin. It's Yahoo answers user, Dan. Who asks I don't get it. What's the point of bubble bath ever since? I was a kid. I never understood what the deal is with bubble bath does cleaner than just soap and water. Or is it just a stupid load of crud. Or is it meant to make you feel like you're a millionaire when you ain't or. Does it have some function? I never understood like is the whole point of it says you can have someone else in the room while you're bathing, and they can't see your private parts because bubbles or is bubble bath. Just totally pointless. This person is listed three great things about bubble bath. They're still wondering what the point of it is you're getting it. Yeah. There's not some secret hidden bubble bath agenda that you're. Yeah. That's it. It makes you feel like a millionaire where you the first thing. No question to people can't see your private parts. The act of bathing Imos films without Earls. And you know, this this or take tasteful pictures of your toddlers because there's a bubble bath door. So all it looks like they've got a beard and a hat on. And you can't see them just touched on the next thing. Which is the Santa beard is very good hint beard is very good. I bet this guy goes to the park where kids are playing with Bubba Watson. He's like what's the point? Does it? Get you clean. I mean. Hi. Hi. These kids high. It'll get it. I do support doing say this about bubble bath. I wish there was off. Switch once you board the bubble bath train. Yes, go back to water bath, you simply cannot, and it is for this reason that my I used to draw a bubble bath for my son. And I did it for a while. And then he started just requesting no bubbles only two year old. I know of who's like I'll just do a water one this time and every time I hate those bubbles because you can't turn them off. There's just always there. Once you do and you can't actually re it's so hard to rinse bubbles off like. Yeah. It is a yeah. It bubbles. Bubble baths. Are also if kids are real young you shouldn't do both as bad for their skin, especially. People with young people with vaginas. It's not great for him. Just a little PSA for me. I would like to pitch this a new bubble bath strat. Okay. Make bucket of bubble bath on the side, then you can place the you can do the bubble hat. You could do the bubble beard. You could even play some bubble coverage. But you have sequestered the bubbles over in a safe area where they can be admired. Oh, those are some great bubbles, but they're not over here. Investing my whole bath zone. That's fun. There's also this a second bathtub that sits in the ceiling above your current bathtub. Fill up your bathtub, upstairs bathtub also gets filled up. And then when you want the bubbles in your fun bath to go away when the person's left the room, and you like your genitals to really. Scuba around down there without being obfuscated by the suds. Then you pull the lever and this the floor of your tub opens up and falls out of the house and in the floor of the upstairs bath opens an instantly refills with clean, beautiful, easy, breezy, beautiful bubble free water and Gromit brings you a sandwich or whatever. Then your breakfast gets made. And you're Mr. bean or what? And it was not cereal pours, the only like two pieces of it. You can laugh at me. But let me ask you this. Okay. You ever see Mr. Bean's, dick? Griffin. Please me talk about this again. Sunday afternoon already for regular weekly conference. Call with grid. Have you ever see? They had to put butts in the season, Johnny English three somehow. The last time Johnny English is it Mr. bean, you can fuck and cry that on my cold dead hands. You can lean over my casket at my funeral. Be like, it's not true. That's the only way you're going to take that for me. But because he is Mr. being manly talks normal or. He gets into wacky hijinks. They can't fucking pants falls down. And he doesn't do being spy. Good. Hello. Does that sound like Mr. bean who goes into the museum and makes a big mess? Hello. I can't believe that you're not on my side on this. I'm actually kind of heartbroken about it. I just being devil's advocate. No sorry Griffin. All right as a different person. He's also not the same guy from the remake of rat race. He is similar though, Mr. bean Mr. bean is very similar from race. I think he only says the one thing that it's very. Ace bang, but he's also not Blackadder blackout. Or is that -pletely different? That's different that one's different. But the other ones where he's Mr. bean, I think he's actually Mr. bean knows. So like, wait. So Johnny does Johnny English come before Mr. bean where maybe he sees too much. And he's like, I'm never speak. Again. I Johnny English never comes before anyone. He's proper British gentleman. That knows how to make a lover last take care like he'd Chinese food. It's not overturn baguettes cookies. That's the line from Alec Baldwin's movie. Poss baby shadow. I watched boss baby fucking twice on the cruise. How is your crews? I had fun. I didn't get diarrhea against the will of Gaden, man. And I watch boss baby twice. Pretty good. Pretty good time. I think I had. These you know, there's Netflix series, you could just transition straight into that. I think it's on. It's like eighth season. Six six are show in TV was done. But we've got a rope to like six seasons of boss baby Boston around or whatever the. Pair the quality of our show to the quality of boss baby Griffin or Justin which one are you not? I mean, the animation is about equal but the voices in ours. Are a lot better. All right. Let's not even remember who made it so be nice. Oh, you're right. It is a DreamWorks thing. Get that voting. Oh, I thought that one word. Due to the next one. All also, I had did have a lot of fun with boss, baby. The national corn bread festival is coming up next month. And I was thinking checking out not fuck you there. I noticed the words. No drones allowed were written at the bottom of every single page in bold, orange fund a reach out to the organizers through Email about a week ago. Bless you. Good for you. Excellent. I reach the organizers through Email about a week ago about not kind of response, and it doesn't stay why they're band anywhere on the site. I hope when you reach out to them you Email to say, hey, I know, I get it. But can I bring one drone? Just the one drone. Man, it doesn't say anywhere. And so why are drones band? How can I find this out? Now, we've been making a push recently for more more just really got us in advice questions. I how ever have gone to national corn bread dot com and found that really prominently at the bottom of every single page. It does say no drones allowed in huge, orange letters. And I don't understand. It's like it's really prominent the only reason that happens is passed cornbread festival. Big did not have this rule some drone showed up and ruined everything. Yeah. I mean it man it's really just on the masthead their high. It's above their address. They added if you can imagine this friend of your if you're not at a computer at the bottom of the page. There's like the links for Facebook and Twitter Instagram, boy Instagram of national festival bark that way. Oh, it's a bunch of horn grad. God. Yeah. Actually, really delicious. Now that I look at and then at the bottom of the page there's like their address in white and then above that in three times as big font in huge lead, orange letters. It says no drones allowed. So did the website maybe used to be something else? And then they updated every part of it. But couldn't figure out how to remove no drones allowed from the masthead. No drones allowed d think do drones. Okay. I got back yard to do that. Got say no drones allows Ron's eat corn bread. They do like it. I don't. But like do they like it more than the rest of us? I don't know. I just listen if I worked hard to make some and I'm hoping to win the blue ribbon makes them like award-winning cornbread. Right. And then a drone sweep in and eats. It all up before what am I supposed to how am I supposed to Sabbath Rome Griffin? Now, I will say there's let's comes razor this because what's more likely drones to eat and enjoy digest. And then I guess shit corn bread or at the national cornbread festival in south Pittsburg Tennessee. There was executed the fucking heist of the century. A an aerial corn bread escape and nary nary a flake of this sweet yellow bread crossed the gums of the attendees and participants of the festival as they lifted off into the skies. And they even did the thing that they do at the Super Bowl sometimes will form words like maroon five or Pepsi good. And it said like fuck us this this gets are where it's at from the national biscuit council. It was a spite thing it's possible that I thought it was gonna I figure head towards like a super villain who has like a crazy craving. I quarterback, and they've stolen like five thousand pounds of corn bread, right? Under the nose possible of that corn bread festival who's always the wording them. Yeah. And another possibility is that. If you see the way the tints are lined up in the parking, lots are lined up in the corn maize is lined up the whole thing when seen from way, above bird's eye view. And this is just an accident is just kind of how came together it does look like a dog sitting on its but with a huge Boehner. And they don't want anyone to know. And it's too late to change. It. Do you think maybe the organizers of the corn bro will are worried that people would show up just like super excited for corn bread? And then they look up like oh shit are those robots flying in the sky cornbread. I would apply that about this. Yeah. That's way. More interesting. I bought a skywalk festival two inch should list. Some other things that are more interesting than core bread like yoyos or bread pencils favor. There's so many big Gers. On the corn bread festival website of people pretending to be super jazzed about the idea of done wrong. I love corn bread. But these people it is as if they have never eaten food before. I kind of really want to go now tweeted that I see the is now tweeted, hey are Jones a lot at the corn bread fest corn bread festival, and that's all that after just one because I want to be clear, I don't want to bring a lot of drones just the one. And this is a fun thing that Justin likes to do to Twitter accounts with six hundred followers is sort of just sort of bring the hammer down on them a joke hammer how about a Yahoo. Yeah. Love that. Thank you. So here's one that here's one that was sitting by Jessica Williams. Thank you. Jessica it is from yahu answers user, they are non Humous. So I'm going to call them. Sally Sally asks. Was I right to leave the party because there was nowhere for me to sit yesterday. My grandma had a party at her house. My whole family went and extended family to it started at like ten AM. And I got there at twelve PM. I drove there to find. There were no seats. I walked in the backyard and everyone was sitting down, and I got a fended because no one offered me seat. I would have had to stand up the whole time. So I got my car in left was I right to do that. Now, the whole family is talking about me and thinks I'm weird. Here's the thing that Sally was a isn't telling us, it's not our family say she showed up, and it was like she's back, and she's like, no one's giving me and she left at everyone was super relieved. Yeah. Also Sally is a baby black bear who just keeps. Coming onto my lot and keeps fallen in my swimming pool, and scaring, my my child lot. That's possible. It could also be that you showed up two hours late to your grandma's radical party. And so maybe you don't get maybe just don't get a seat grandma's party going that two hours was an acceptable window to dig grim. Put ten AM to question. Mark. Here at all day. Now, if it's a memorial date thing in iron tin, that's kind of come and go situation like you can because you're going to be going all the neighbors houses, especially. About it, especially if you got to easily accessible bathroom people are going to hit you all day long. Hey, Bill, Steve. Yeah. Whatever, where's the graph? Of course. Yeah. Love it. So good catching up gotta shoot a dick. Thank you for your service. I never actually can I shit in here. That's a closet, okay? This would be generally speaking is it okay to leave a party because there's nowhere for you to sit. I certainly in my collegiate days before I learned how to speak to other human beings, I left parties for far less reasonable reasons than this reason like to drunk reason to drunk or someone showed up who looked like someone that I had beef with. But it didn't end up to be then there were drones there. Or you thought are or you thought you heard ice cream truth out, your another Chucky gotta chase that shutdown gussie what's happening out there. I think that rather than tell someone like if someone's like, hey, Sally, widely the party don't say they're won enough seats. There say I knew they were more seed somewhere else. Well, that's that's put us positive thing. I'm still at the party. I'm just sitting at my house. Now, I have annexed my house as part of your party because that's where I knew the seat was what if you told me when to buy more chairs, but the tear store had bird? You went home because it was very far away from the original. Yeah, you can do what I do whenever I show up to any social function, which is walk into the room and introduce my presence, and then just very very slowly start sitting down wherever I am a hope that somebody puts a chair under me, and I make a big deal out of it. Like, oh does that work. Oh, no here. I go going to I don't smash motto kiss on the ground. Please. Give me a thing to land. Oh, no. I'm almost losing my balance think took office now Gribben you have broken your Cox IX like AB times. Right. I don't it's really just kind of a metal kind of mostly just at truck hitched back there at this which is cool because I poetry ller. I can get a boat down to the river just on myself, which citing. I would leave the party because I don't wanna stand up Mullah bunch of sitters in the same way that I do not want to be the only person sitting at the party talking to a bunch of zones. I would I would find someplace lower to sit down. Oh, like if everybody sitting on a chair, you could say I'm like footstool, you know, what I mean? So now, it's like, I'm even more comfortable than you are damned Travis funky and relate of twisted to I'd say, well, I'm not what I bring to the party. Get a shovel and start digging a hole you can sit in. Yeah. Do that the lowest lay down and look up your grandma the lowest the lower. You are the cooler. You are you're closer to the center of the earth where it's hot baby, and maybe just grabbed the whole bowl of potato salad. Fork in there. No need for a plate. Yeah. Don't leave. That's not going to get even with them. These mother fuckers wanna be chair hogs. I think I think you've got it just up in the hot dog trae. I think a good way to get a bunch of people standing up who are sitting is just walk in and say oh sitting and then just don't say anything else as you look around the room, slowly. That would work on me. I'd be like, wait. What is it? What's oh issue are setting? That's really bad for you. I heard sitting for five minutes is like having thirty heart attacks. What I saw on the news. Yeah. I'm a standard problem is then once people start standing up with you, you can't Knicks sit down like, oh, you know, what I'm going to risk it. I read another story. They updated the sciences changed. You know, science the science on sitting is different now. Oh, you know, what I love when confronted with my grandma her rude chair stealing ways as you get a Whoopie cushion under there. Oh my God. This sounds so funny. Nobody talk while you cutting blow it up first. And you don't wanna see them to see do that go in the bathroom and say like, I've got a shit. And then you go in the bathroom because. But do make it seem like you're actually doing the deed because they're going to be like, why are you doing in there because and so all the toilet paper roll a few times and tear off. So that they think spend time praying loudly. Well, no, that's I'm talking about usual bathroom stuff. And so yeah me to flush it down and wash your hands. Good. But you don't have to just turn the water on and really you can do that anywhere, but that's a whole different prototype. And then you're going to go outside and sit in the chairs at this point, the what because in your belly up in your shirt and growing walk out. And you'd better do it to grandma because it's going to be the funniest like it's funnier when an older person passes gas. Yes, yes. Yes. You are going to stand behind them or maybe crawl behind him. So everybody else doesn't see you. And once you get there you're going to have to get that what because under granny's behind. Yes. And it was this is the part of your plan. I. Most interesting thing. Sure. Sure. Sure. So we're talking about what is it what? Because while I'm glad you asked me that very question. It's just a bag full of air, and what is air known for it can fill any space that it occupies. And so if you just put it sort of against your granny's thought by and the chair the surface, and you just kinda start pushing that big balloon against her Heine it's gonna get under there. Eventually the question is what is there to distracting her against this, very obvious station. That's the obvious question. I know you think I'm a real goofball by suggesting this another thing you need in this situation is a pill. Catty full of bees. Okay. Yes. A pill caddy full of bees. Yeah. And you're just going to start open those up one by one and once they start getting bored with one be opened up Tuesday Wednesday Thursday beat if it's don't worry about why not just hat. It's sorry. I'm sorry. Why not into box of? These because it's harder to catch a boxful of bees. If you open up a box Travis. Even a small box like a box for shoes, and then fucking seven bees fly out people be like that was not other presents. But if you throw up till caddy for one week down, and you've been walkover to what you've just thrown down and one by one open all the doors. It it does the scare factor. Because people look like oh my God. That's a week's worth of. Open. One b right. Yeah. Be then you would go and scoot, some more of the cushion underneath Graham, oh and getting bored. You go back to the center. Open monday. Now, go back more cushion exactly the problem is that you've chosen a target who maybe the least mobile person at the event. And so you need to confront yourself the reality. This thing this dog just is not going to hunt. Even no matter if you have something ridiculous like to full pill caddies full of bees. And so at that point, you're grains, going catch you and it'll do the funny. Exclamation point thing like in metal gear solid. And she'll be like what do you do? What do you do? And then that's when you just take the what because in back, and you just squeeze it. So that the little repor lips of it is blowing the fart like at her dairy air, and that's going to be not ideal obviously. But you get something out of it. So my. My only sadness that you've added all this out. No one will ever get to hear any of this madness. That's the only thing that makes me sad. No. I think that one made the cut it did. Surprise. Can we not the max fund drive? Sure. I guess so. Okay. Yeah. Maximum fund for its donate is the address if you donate five ten twenty dollars a month at twelve months, you get a puzzle and a pin of your choice and all the, but it's content. Thirty five dollars a month. You get an engraved mug and the puzzle and the the pin the content. That engraving by the way, I should've mentioned it's you don't get to pick. The engraving it's the Maxwell ago. But it's cool. There's a cool thing to have on your arby's arby's logo, a love it. They're they're more gifts at higher donation levels. Would you can go see at the website if you want to, but the main thing is just subscribing, even if just five bucks a month, it really those add up and helped this network going. It is the reason that we have all been able to make this our jobs. Spend a lot more time on the shows improve our equipment. And start news like star new shows, my brother and me, and look how many we're doing now. Because being a part of this network is so great. It's so it is a great place to do our thing. And we are very we're very fortunate that you all have been so supportive in the past. So think about it's really quick to go to maximum fun dot org slash donate.

Like, oh, yeah. I'll do that later. And then like you complete forget about it. And then you're gonna miss your window to get all of these awesome rewards, and to be part of the drive and all that stuff. I would say also for whatever it's worth I don't want to like get into giving anybody. But for the first couple of days, we had some problems with the max fund, website and speaking, frankly, we're a little bit behind of where we would like to be considering the network wide goal is to five thousand and we're sitting at about eight here as we're recording on Friday afternoon. Hopefully, it's slightly higher than eight thousand which sweat. It's at Friday because you're listening to Monday. But we were really appreciate we need your help. Basically is what I'm saying.

HR 1: Getting Old

"Hey sodano llc. Welcome back housi- granderson. Welcome back captain. Horr hey. I'm sorry. George george george. Yeah hey to. It doesn't make this is okay. It's alright it's okay. Because i don't want to confuse the other way right right. I didn't want you to think i was coming back from. Not donald laura's all right and laura's back in now l. z. We missed you clinton. Yates filled in admirably for you. A goat right so we were. We had some fun with him We did some things while you were away. We redecorated a little bit. Oh a little thing you know. Apparently there is a new weather. Surge here in southern california that will get to a little later. We called it. Storm watch So it's something sexy. Yeah it's something you're going to have to. We'll have to catch up on as we get to storm. Watch and the lakers. So we'll get to that in a minute but real quick before we get to the actual lakers okay. So i was watching the post game yesterday. and as i do every night on spectrum sports net with peter and company and alley and trudell and everybody right like and of course big game james right and just real quick. Is mike stern and get the gray sideburns. Oh yeah oh yeah. Oh yeah oh yeah. You've noticed that to going hours trying to figure out how throats about them through a process in it. I don't like it myself. And i'll tell you that i personally don't go with gray so when the gray starts popping up get my hair dyed. I have no shame in telling anybody that none zero so now. Are you going somewhere to get your hair dyed. Because i know l z has a person l z has always told me i gotta keep the locks crispy right peeing. Yes now cap. Are you going to someone to get. The hair died. Because i wasn't really going to talk about trudell here but if we're gonna talk about your i noticed the grade that's on the sides above the inner side. I like it i like. It looks distinguish which. I was like a win win. He grow up right when a young my trudell distinguished man. Yeah it makes you. it makes you smarter. There's no doubt about it like sometimes a beard can make you look or feel smarter. But in this particular instance george. I'll have you know that my fourteen year old daughter hates it. When i have great hair gray hair. She tells me it makes me look like an old man. So she'll go to the cvs she'll buy like a just for men package and then she'll do the hair but it always comes out a shade wrong show like like like it goes to like a burnt orange. You know so now. I've started going to a professional person. Who actually does do the full die job. And it's just no shame at all fell as if you're like me and you don't want the gray hair because once i let it go dude. Forget it it's going to be albert einstein six months so i'm all into dying their hair. Okay so you tried to do like the just for men stuff and workout is there. Anything that embodies manageability more than here just for men. Is there anything that says. We're more fragile than leading to hair dinosaurs. Hey this is for you because your hair is than women's as if it is it's just for men. Inches not marketing. You're not soft. No no this is just for men right. But but i'll give you the reverse of that. The reverse of that is secret strong enough for a man but made for a woman. Let me say something right now. Yeah secret is by far and away the best deodorant so sometimes like you smell good like that secret is what that is right there because it just smells good and it may be strong enough for a man but made for a woman but i use it for a man you know. It's funny because my wife uses it secret and for man but made for woman correct and i on occasion. If i've run out. I'm like hey you know it won't work. You know what i'm saying and caps point just fine now. Look i remember us having this conversation. Many many years to know which days you're wearing your your winds high. Will it happens very infrequently. Tell us just send morales is a text making it to a bit so we can properly razz you all right but it. It reminds me of right now. No not today. I don't even know what wearing any today. Not wearing today for man and smell like a man way to go. george. I have natural. Musk on today. Think so no no stink. Because i didn't get a workout in today. Yeah i've been I've been dealing with stuff today. I've just had like like stuff. I had to do the house. So i haven't had any outside time today. No workout today. Very disappointed in myself. I didn't get a workout in. Especially because i got a game on saturday. Jazz lakers little matinee action at staples center one thirty pacific. Okay start time on. Espn like the way you said. I got a game saturday. And i was like. Oh your plan. And then you're like no. I got the jazz okay. Your guests on game week. I try to get a little extra workout. Nah i wanna look right. You wanna look tight on. Tv turtle baby right. It's already too warm for turtles. he's not wearing deodorant. When on saturday. Or kelly's mine. yeah so anyway. It reminded me of the conversation. You and i had one time about vegan. It owner and for some reason and he just said he couldn't deal with it like you try it free. Little man yeah. It didn't work out so well but but anyway back to hair. So we which trudell joi- text trudell out right now i just said to l. z's loving the great company and on your hair we're discussing. I was hoping to hear back. Perhaps maybe we'll get your lawn to discuss the hair at some point. If you'd like to jump on at some point. So what i was going to talk about was trudell was in the post game. And he was interviewing anybody everybody obviously but it was kouzmines turn and he asked coups mma if the glasses he was wearing were for visual enhancement and kuzina interrupted him with his soda bottle glasses and said no that they're a fashion piece. So i'll ask you first. Have you ever done the glasses as a fashion piece. Yeah but like decades ago are the ones doing right now. Apparently he's brought it back Good for you guys but there was a good stretch in. Which if i needed to speak in front of important people ahead on fake glasses Because i was feeling like an impostor i thought the glasses will make you feel less like an impostor right when in actuality it just highlighted. What an impostor. I was being because you knew i didn't need glasses because i was talking to win by my day. We i do better glasses. Fashion quite different color frames and stuff that cracks late eighties all through the mid nineties. Right after the dwayne wayne i was just gonna ask you dwayne flip up. I did do to flip up after those i like. Okay and i'm out okay. But again that was like mid-nineties. Yes yes. that's twenty years ago like are they doing that again. Yeah apparently they are. Did you see. Have you seen a picture of coups google. I mean i find it for you. If you give me a second hold on. I wanna see. Hey by the way while. you're googling. Let me say something about glasses. I don't wear glasses. Don't have contacts okay and like the gray hair where you're just not admitting that you're getting a little older by letting it go natural. I also i don't wear glasses and i don't even fake glasses because fake glasses. I think are intended to make me feel like. I'm a little bit smarter like putting on these glasses. I look smarter. But then i know that i would have a bryant. Gumbel moment you guys ever watch. Aj sports bryant. Gumbel is the king of the minor now offers to queen of this. But but brian gumbo is the king of lowering of the glasses down on the ridge of your notes. Well he's also the king of taking the glasses off the face okay and then like holding them like when he's gesturing like i'll use a pen like i've always got a pen in my hand. He's got his glasses or he'll take the end of his glasses. The part that goes behind your ear and he'll stick it in his mouth a little bit like a little bit of like some kind of i have to have something in my mouth sort of a thing. I do that with my pen to. So so if i had glasses and i was faking it. I'd always be taking them on and taking them off. So i'm off on glasses but i see cousy are looking all humpty hump the way i see it. Yeah that's actually not a terrible way to describe it. So i'm looking at this picture and i'm reminded that i actually did. Rock look within the last seven years. Okay okay because look yeah. That's that's a different. Look what. I was rocking back when i was discussing early in the nineties right that. That's a very specific fashioned glass. Look that he's rocking. And i'm cool with that. I thought he was trying to use the fake glasses. Not the obvious. Play glasses if you know what. I'm saying so. These are just look so it works when you score twenty four points. That's for sure definitely works when you scored twenty four points. I i would agree with that. I will say this. I have gotten to the age where i think. I think that if i stare at this computer screen for too long in front of me. I my eyes have. We'll get a little sore at the end of the day. And also i have found myself with small numbers like needing to put something whatever it is. I have in my hand to read a small number or a small imprint. I have to put it further away from my face. I think i am now. Is that being. Nearsighted enforced nearsighted. It's it's one hundred and what you lack. Yeah right do you use your phone for like a flashlight. Like like i can see it but i can't really say but it must be too dark so then i put my phone flashlight on. I'm like oh okay. I have only done that in like one restaurant but it was literally super dark in the place. Like but but i mad at you if you do it because you know what it's about comfort and hey you know getting old sucks so i but i'm still fighting putting glasses because i'm still farce. I could see far away fine like in the studio. And if and if like the prompters rolling. I still read it. I'm still good. If i had that problem i'd be in trouble. Promised to produce you. Yeah you need a bit. I mean no problem. I don't forget to prompt. Or i got no. Let me explain to me as as he can attest to this. Okay wh when you're doing a tv show that has scripted content in it. You're going to need the prompter. I don't care what anybody like the only person at this company here. We're gonna just do this deep dive. Let's do it. The only person at this company that i have witnessed okay because i have been to college game day and seen it happen. The only person that i have seen that can do an entire and this is like a three hour extravaganza. Okay an entire show. Without a prompter is chris fowler. Okay chris fowler makes love to the camera okay. that man is a different level of host. Okay on television. I am nowhere near that level. I now as a radio person i can. Once we get into the conversation right. I mean i can then. Just forget about the prompter and just have the conversation. But when i got to read a lead like i got. I got to tell you what the story is. No no no. I got to read. What the hell's going on the inter- stand by the way i love chris fowler chris fowler fanfare iranian shocked almost jackson. Oh really oh yeah you know. L z. i'm starting my diet on monday. Just so you know. I'm going to get his jacket as you are for the summer. I want be able to do the things you've talked about where you showed up in an atm with no shirt on and then dudes came up to you because they thought you were looking hot. Because you're six pack. That'll be me by july. I think it was more than just my six pack. But i appreciate the effort. Yes chris fowler. Let me tell you a very very quickly. You're ready for this very first college football game. That was televised by espn. This is when you were at pitt. It's the second week of my of my college football career. Freshmen donald. But we'll get to that in a minnows sir and i promise you guys pit versus ohio state. It's a saturday night. Game to game and chris fowler is standing on the sideline. well forget about it. I no longer and paying attention to what's happening on the field. All i'm doing is standing there interviewing chris fowler about what he does because he had a show way back. In the day you guys might remember last exports america thing and if you may that show you were going to be a star. I follow lonzo mornings career from the time. He was a junior in high school till the end of his nba career. Because of that show. And so. When i saw chris fowler standing on the sideline he's like. Aren't you supposed to be concentrating on the game right now. And i'm like you gotta be kicking suit. I'm like no dude. I'm here to talk to you pal. And i just i love chris valued he did. You know he's jacked work with crispy years all the tennis. That's right of course. I forgot who is swab secrets. Because oh when you're over in women village for three weeks as we were the really is only one gem that you can go to as a visitor and depending upon your car time. You didn't make it right because you had to walk or get a ride. And it was a little bit of a distance great distance but a little bit enough to three game so we were talking about exercise. You do from your flat to can maintain your gain can get back into into a gym situation. I love this. I think we should bring on bergman. Can we book. Chris fowler just to talk about him. And l z trading workout secrets. Absolutely it was really all of us. You know because we were all health conscious because all of us still played tennis obviously various different levels but yes we all still very active and when you're their schedule it's very obvious we will be there like thirteen fourteen hours. Sometimes depending upon how long the matches would go and you couldn't get to the gym so like everyone. Basically with the exception of maybe mcenroe sit around and talk about. What are we doing to stay in shape. We're i money where there might be some. Pull up bars outside in a park Stuff like that. That was an ongoing conversation at wimbledon. Once you get to the. Us open new york was but it was there right right before we go to break. Because i do wanna get into the actual lakers and the successful road trip and aaron donald getting into a fight in pittsburgh video of fight news assume that he was an altercation patient happen. I want to talk more about. And i'd love for the like maybe the audience to participate here at eight seven seven seventeen. Espn per perhaps broadcasters not athletes. Not like you can't give me like you know shannon sharpe right like because you know that's obvious and he played professional sports. I'm talking about broadcaster. Division okay so like l z and chris fowler. Who you've met and you were surprised like yo. This dude is jacked serves. If you've got one someone you've just met randomly saw somewhere on the street or wherever radha game. Eight seven seven seven ten. Espn because there are a couple. That surprised me. And i'll tell you about that in a second. But i don't forget aaron donald in a fight. We've got that coming up. We've got a successful lakers road trip. However there's still some stuff that needs to be figured out we'll tell you what that is. In four minutes. Sadako elsie is back and cap seven ten. Espn saddam hosea cap with here seven ten. Espn this portion of the shows presented by linemen health. Plan changing health care. One person at a time as we will get to the jacked broadcaster division sports broadcaster division. Here in a moment the lakers four and three on the road trip. Six and seven since lebron has gone down l z. Look we we said beat the teams that are bad. They've done that. They beat the first three they won. Where the cleveland orlando right. And sacramento which we made a big deal about. They beat a bad charlotte team a team. That was five of its top scores. And hell they be brooklyn in there too so i i. I feel like they've done even though they're under five hundred lebron's been gone that exceeded our expectations. I absolutely i was actually texting with a source Within the organization and said i know he won't get consideration for it for frank vogel's job. This year phenomenal absolutely phenomenal. And you know again. He won't get acknowledged for it. He'll be looked over for a variety of reasons. But the way that he's managed to incorporate andre drummond and try to use him in a way that andre doesn't even have a skill set for an has been able to work has been simply incredible and then obviously we can't talk about their success particularly during this road trip without marveling at the defense right arguably their two best defensive players are out serving the two most versatile defensive players are out and the fact that they have been able to not just maintain but in some areas like they've improved defensively on potiskum standpoint. Absolutely phenomenal frank vogel. They joked you last year. They overlooked you ship. But dammit you did the damn thing dog. You're doing the damn thing maintaining this ship with this talent and then incorporating biam players while you're on the road phenomenal absolutely phenomenal. Yeah i think this road trip Really exceeded expectations. Who were being realistic. But not necessarily simultaneously being optimistic in other words. We were talking about this last week. L. z when. You were out but you know saturday. They were gonna play against the nets and i said i would expect katie and kyrie in particular to really want to take it to the lakers while the brand is sitting on the bench which by the way. That's another very cool thing. I love seeing. Lebron is traveling with the team cheering on the team jumping off the bench etc. Because i know we talked about whether or not he should or shouldn't be a games when he was at home. So look i gotta say this. The road trip far exceeded my expectations. Take out all the basketball. The xs and os stuff for me. What frank vogel has is. He said i'm coaching okay. We don't have the two superstars. Were adding two new bodies. The rest of you guys. You gotta follow. What i'm saying here. And he was able to really coach and show off. What kind of coaches and by the same token you had players. We were begging last week. Who's going to step up well. Coups has stepped up. Casey p. has come up big. At times caruso has had some big games the the reverse dunk. That t h t had was incredible. The other night. I'm just saying that individual players not to mention drummond macklemore guys who are brand new. They've stepped up. They've played with pride they said. We can't go to and nine you. We can't give up this many games. They battled and to me. This team showed a whole lot of heart. That's what i was encouraged about particularly during the road trip. Yea it's about having a sense of pride right and here's the thing and when we were initially talking about this team having to perhaps be without lebron e for close to a month right my thing was this team because of what l z mentioned about frank vogel because of frank vogel history because of the makeup of the rest of the roster. I sit at the very least. They need to keep their defensive disposition. Okay they're the number one defense in the nba. Or they were when lebron was there. And i said even if there's a drop know two three four hell even five. I'll take that now. Look to their credit. They've only dropped to last time. I checked i'll check in a minute but they were down to only the second best defense in the nba. Which shows you that. Hey you know what that's where we're going to hang our hats. We may not be the most talented offensive team without our best players. Very few teams would be very talented in those spots. But we're going to be a good defensive team with a good defensive coach because that's our identity and they were able to do that now. You mentioned drummer nosy. Now whether it's andre or coups more some of the guys they still feel like though that there is some figuring out to do for him on offense although i feel like that natural pecking order will come easier once. Ad and certainly lebron comes back. Well he's been asked to do things he's not good at. You know you can look at them and tell his discomfort with dribbling right and and my god you know. He is committed to getting that high post feed and dribbling towards the real. And i just keep thinking. Why don't you just establish yourself tours around. Let's eliminate that whole dribbling thing because you turn the ball over rely when you do that. He still does it. When abyan lebron's here was going to end up happening. Is that all that dribbling. We've been watching it in a turnover. Come out of it. That's going to disappear. He's not going to be doing all of that dribbling nothing. There will be no dribbling but he's not going to be asked to initiate the offense from the high post position and try and find an open. Mind if a double team comes or work around double team in the low post. He's not going to do all of that right there. There seems to be a little marcus soul in the offense in what they're trying to do with him. Which is to your point. There is not him. it's not him and this is what. I was trying to get through win. Horse's skull stop looking at him through myth cast is look at what he does extremely well and imagine removing all of those things. He doesn't do well from his plate. We're not going to ask him to get the rock at the free. Throw line and make a play for the other players per not gonna ask them to do that every time he touches the rock. So he's not gonna be in that position over and over again. We aren't going to ask them to do a lot of things. We saw last night though. Feifer offensive rebounds chase the loose balls fantastic timely steals blocking shots. Doing all the things that made him an all star and we're going to remove all the thing. All the things that brian windhorst was talking about about why they don't win. Gains didn't win games around germany. Detroit and cleveland. Because of the things we start in charlotte they were trying to make him that dude. That's not him right right now if they go on to win this championship this year. Guys if lebron comes back healthy and eighty does as well and if drum gets you know to a point where he's doing the things you're saying where he's they're taking advantage of his strengths and weaknesses. Listen if this thing gets to a championship again this year. I will tell you that these guys will look back on this period of time. Where where the two superstars were hurt and particularly on this road trip where they kept it at five hundred ish. They'll look back on this stretch and say we got better. Because while those guys were out it was starting to crumble on us and we listen the the noise and the critics were out. There us included. But they've gotten better over these last call it two weeks and when the superstars come back healthy this stretch of time will be that period where they'll go it was then when we even came more together. We became better each individual night. There's somebody else t h t Pope cobra drummond schreuder. Coups each night. It was somebody else was mantras leading the way and to me. That's what this stretches. All about they've been able to come together and hold it down waiting for the guys to get back not losing the season and finding themselves in this playoff in this plan situation. They been able to hold it together. That to me is the most impressive part. All right coming up next. We'll continue discussing that. And of course. Aaron donald issues in pittsburgh if you missed it. He got some sort of altercation. There's still a lot of investigating going on. We'll get to that in a second. Plus overrated underrated properly rated. America's are excuse me and america's south southern california's The international game of audio preference. Right all that coming up on the other side in about four minutes. Thank you very much chris. And let's start with earth day so scott. I'm going to start with you today. Sarah michelle gellar adrian. Brodie and brad garrett overrated underrated properly rated all right. You know i have to write. He's all down one more time given to me. Sarah michelle gellar. Who is pretty prince. Junior's wife adrian brodie and brad garrett also very. I was gonna do that to her dog. I anti gay hurt if somebody's wife. I wasn't meant it wasn't meant that way. It was just freddie. Prince juniors a friend of the show the show. She's amazing she was buffy. The vampire slayer for heaven's sakes. I'm so bad at you right out. Great all right. Let me think about this year for a quick second. Now because i'm trying to think of other things that i like adrian. Brodie was gosh. It was show that i saw not that long ago. That i really really liked him in and i got to think of what it was. Okay i'll get back to it. But i'm gonna say garrett brad garret way overrated way way overrated. I wasn't a fan of any of the something about raymond cousin. Raymond nobody likes raymond around. Didn't everybody loves raymond. Apparently not sarah michelle gellar. I'm going to go with properly rated as a really good actress with a nice career. Not just being. Somebody's wife and sure sure. Got to run into the greg meter. Greg's that okay. That's absolutely good. And i got adrian brodie as being underrated. How about that okay. Fair enough l. z. I'm going to go sarah. Michelle heller being underrated. Okay she's underrated adrian. Brodie is going to be my over rated. Oh you're not a fan of his. As we talked about the pat riley thing. You weren't a big fan of that. Well it's only after the. He won the oscar. His choice is really just went to crap. Yeah a lot of yeah. After the penis there wasn't a lot of co for him the pianist the piano player. Yeah yeah yeah yeah. Yeah but because you know. Greg carter freddie prince. Junior's wife feel she's underrated. What about brad. Garret properly rated. Okay fair enough. I will also go with. Brad garret overrated. I'm not. I mean he's fine. He's not like any on any of might like you know i didn't love that. Show either to be honest with you. I didn't watch it in another thing. I know he's been in other things like you know like he was a teenage mutant ninja turtles. If i recall correctly one of the reasons he was one of the voices at ready to talk to. He's been he's done voices he's done well invoices but just not. My thing is not not for me. sarah michelle. Gellar is underrated. Because sarah michelle gellar was part of that era of time where young people really took control of like that industry entertainment industry and she was probably at the peak of that and by the way a lot of people from that era. When you know. When when. Sarah was at the height of her work they fell off. Fell off like personally in a lotta ways. Were you know. How many times did we do. The tragedy of child stars or people young people who were acting and then their life was disaster. You know what. I'm saying after that sarah. That wasn't the case at all like sarah's still very successful in in the entertainment industry Freddie also. Her husband is still very successful right in and they're doing a lot of different things a lot of different projects and they just like to me like the prototypical like holly hollywood couples should strive to be like right. She's great he's great. They're great parents together. I love everything about them. And i'm not. I don't say that just because he and i are friends right. I don't even know her. I've never been net her about that. But i i love everything about her and him but she is was the star of that particular era and i don't think she gets of credit for really spawning off a whole other generation of actresses after that. So i'm gonna see underrated and then properly rated i'm gonna go brodie. I understand your point l z. But when you win an oscar you still want an oscar. So i gotta give you at least properly rated nearly one and a grammy. Oh come on. I missed that. I missed that. I don't know how you miss. That was right in your wheelhouse. Grammy no i mean i remember. The songs are remember the hairdo. I remember the dance really well. I could dance no problem. But i don't remember the mill. Even i mean we lost one of them right mealy vanilla. I don't remember rob light skin in your light skinned black years. Yeah he he couldn't deal with all the scrutiny after the fact he couldn't do with the let me stop because he passed away. Yes i'm i'm going to be nice but i'm also going to be. Real is not scrutiny. He couldn't deal with the accountability of faking it out for all those years and he got caught on his you know what if he would have stuck with and he'd had a geico commercial by now. That's all. I'm saying dog exactly. Yeah yeah that behind the music. I don't think they still do those. Vh one but that is one of the best behind the music's i've ever seen is really compelling though it was funny to think they could barely speak english but somehow they they say what what were we thinking. Yeah we bought into that. We bought into that but they took out of grief for the lip. Synching next lc. We're going to go to you next to start off. Apparently andre drums nickname is the big penguin. He apparently he really likes penguins. He doesn't appreciate the nickname but he allows the kids to talk about it. So l z. Is this nicknamed the big penguin overrated underrated or properly rated. It is properly rated properly rated. You know because if you stare long enough. He looks like a penguin built like one. You think about like his body shape. Yes i'm gonna save property rated models a little bit. you know. He doesn't thing where if he's rebounding and traffic and i don't know it could be history of leg. Injuries lower body injury when rebounds and traffic. He really doesn't jump now. He only really jumps. When there's no traffic right. I think he may have had multiple lower leg injuries. That kind of informed that decision making in those moments. You're right he does. What a little bit too. That's why it's underrated. That's why i gotta go with underrated here the big penguin if you are the big penguin in cleveland or detroit. It's not gonna really do much for you but you see in. La you gotta own a nickname like that because you've already got a d. so you can't be ad and you're not gonna be the superstar so then you've got to have a little something else you know. What else can advertisers and sponsors grasp onto. I say love it man you love it. Use it celebrate it. Be the big penguin in fact walk into the arena rock and like this black and white t shirt gene combo thing that makes you even look more like a penguin roll with it. I do a big penguin in australia. That people go just google it. There's a giant penguin in australia that people to visit. And when i look at it it does not remind me of andre drummond so now ticket back okay there you go. I do think that he reminds me of a penguin. So i'm gonna say properly. Rated that is overrated underrated properly rated coming up next aaron. Donald gets into a fight. We gotta tell you what we know. And let's say it's not good for the other guy. We'll get to that in three minutes living on a prayer. That's what we thought the lakers were going to be doing with lebron ad but they've played fair fairly well. There are only one game under five hundred in that thirteen game. Six and seven row. Quick were talking about andre drummond's Nickname the big penguin in In overrated underrated properly rated I got a note here For one of our listeners. Golden knight jeff ex He says that he's called big big penguin because his favorite animal is a penguin and that greg monroe his teammate in detroit one shared that drums favorite movie is happy feet the cartoon about penguins. So they call them. The big penguin wayne kind of like when shack was called like the big aristotle because was shack made up those hard. Isn't it yeah. He caught himself. Those names right. I got it but then then it's like hey we can't just call them penguin we call it. The big penguin so is that is that what we're supposed understand here. The big i guess. I guess so. Okay i guess So anyway there's your clarification on the penguin nickname right. I'm confused because he says he doesn't know why he's called the big penguin right but now we've done. The media has done the story. Apparently dray right so you do you think he doesn't know or do you think he just doesn't want to get into it. He was hoping for a new start. The no one would find out that he's called the big penguin. Yeah yeah. I think. That's what i'm leaning towards in that situation that he knows but doesn't wanna share right. He's like this penguin thing again. You know what. I mean like penguins that much i mean it was just a conversation like penguins. They're cute. I like right next thing. You know favorite animal. I don't even have a favorite animal right. I feel like that's probably what happened. Greg monroe just made that a thing in detroit and then everybody ran with it. Because he's this big burly dude. And you're like oh that's cute. He likes penguins right. That doesn't help you. Industry credit correct correct in all fairness has been a minute since i've been on the street. So maybe there's i don't titled up. Yeah penguin means something. We don't even know about it. Could i mean the kids changed the language all the time now. I feel old. Because i said the kids do something but anyway aaron donald. Now i don't know if you want to call them big penguin if you wanna call big something okay. He apparent on on. I'm sorry i'm sorry. I've got into this penguin penguin conversation. Yeah and apparently. He's dressed up as a big penguin in the past. Oh no it's. I'm clicking on the link right now and it does appear as if andre drummond is dressed as a giant penguin onto you. Good people okay. Which back to your theory george. That he knows he was just hoping that we forgot. Yeah he was hoping that news would not travel from detroit to los angeles is what he was opie. Wow this is amazing. I mean it's kind of like danny devito the penguin you know i. It's it's kind of and then if you look at the costume like damn dog you look like the big penguin. Because he doesn't look. Like danny devito like the little to veto the penguin. I hope i'm getting it right. I mean i'm not exactly. He was the pink role. I in all his movies. Yeah i will say this. I think it's fairly obvious. I'm seeing the picture here now. I think it's it's. It's fairly obvious that you know. L z when. We've talked about this. You and i over the years. Where like tony. Parker remember like tony. Parker says something like france. And he's like i don't ever give back to the states and then all of a sudden boom you know what i'm saying like. How did that happen. What people translated you know what i mean that. That's how i feel like he. He thought something similar like detroit. Nothing they'll stay in detroit. It won't be in la pick just one being. That's all yeah. I don't know if it's all a win. But it's definitely data april twenty six twenty thirteen o coming up in the eight year anniversary of the penguin. I feel like we should make sure to celebrate that day. The big i think we should mark april twenty six big penguin day. There you go there. You go big penguin day. Put it on the calendar. Greg so donald also big don't know if i would call him a penguin But the pittsburgh penguins are are in the pit. The penguins aren't pittsburgh and he got into a fight in pittsburgh and good lord that was convoluted to get there but anyway so he got into a fight right. So here's the story okay. The story is there's this duty to fight with. Looks also like a big dude. Okay and this big dude. The pictures i've seen from his lawyer. He's i is shut. I mean shut like think about like the worst. Boxing like mike tyson and holyfield right. Yeah like rocky movies. Rocky like apollo hits rocky and his eyes shut mickey s to cut him. Open that kind of thing like that. Yeah and this dude dude. As i shut it face looks swollen as hell and we don't see a picture of air but we see a picture this dude but this dude. According to his attorney who put out these pictures is telling us that what what happened. Was this okay. Now this is the story. They were in a pittsburgh nightclub. Okay and that this dude just simply rushed up against it just like oops my bad bumped into him and then aaron opened up a can of wa- pass on him for no reason other than he just happened to grazing. Imbaba him now. I don't buy that for one second from a guy who has been. Nfl star for years living in this town for several years okay. You're gonna tell me that. Nobody's bumped into aaron donald at someplace ear. La by accident and be like. Oh my god. I'm sorry. Aaron donald up to you and he's like okay little person. Don't worry it's okay Like i don't buy that. That's the instigating part of this story. Like i just don't this of course not because we had an opportunity to see aaron donald respond in very frustrating and violent situations. And we've not seen. I haven't seen in the years that he's been in the league. I haven't seen him responding away to suggest that he had a short temper or that he was prone to lash out if you felt. He was being disrespected out in public. I haven't seen those tendencies now. There are plenty of football players. That i have seen those tennessee's from you know but when it comes to aaron donald and i'm not trying to be a homer i'm just saying my eyeballs telling me i've never seen him stop. When somebody's head of somebody's groin nursing a spit or anybody he gets doubled and tripled. Team regularly is frustrating. But i hardly ever if at all ever seen response to double teams in a in a way that you know kind of fringe upon the rules of the game so notion that this guy in the most hostile and emotional environment of the nfl goes to a nightclub and someone brushes up against him. A bump some and he just snaps is is a tough one for me to wrap my head. I'm not gonna tony. Dismiss it 'cause don i don't hang out every day. We aim boys like that. I'm going strictly on what the field but on the outside looking in i smelled some bs on the other side. Okay we gotta take a break. I want to get your thoughts on this. And also you lived in pittsburgh so i don't i don't even know like is the pittsburgh seen like this turned up where it can just happen like that like okay. We go to blows over a brush up so we'll get your thoughts on the other side. We've got what you need to know in between we're back in three minutes.

Thank you for tuning into the MC, entertainment podcast brought to you by the GS MC podcast network. I'm your host Jessica and I'll be sharing some of the top entertainment news that you just need to know right now at this very moment, it is a. Beautiful Day here in Philadelphia I. Hope It's beautiful wherever you are I've been up for a while trying to consume as much take todd content as I possibly can rumor on the street, is that the president plans to ban the APP again, he's made the threat before, but here we are again. Am I annoyed devastated of course, but I'm not gonna live the APP has consumed. So many hours of my life, it'll be kind of Nice to get those. Back you know what I mean I think my husband would probably appreciate that as well but I'm just so to it and I just love it and I don't post content on it but I love consuming I love seeing the creativity that everyone else has and it makes me laugh I love the humor side of Tiktok sometimes I like the cooking side of Tiktok. It's I. Love It. I love it I love it. So hopefully, this is just an empty threat but whatever who knows I got my content in this morning. And speaking of hours time and being lost I also can't believe that it's already August back in March August seemed so far away. But now here we are it's UN-. It's unbelievable. It don't even feel like summer has even happened or that we're even in summer I mean March April and even may it was cloudy and rainy and we were stuck indoors and then June and July, and still indoors. We're not really going out that much. We're not going out to eat. We're not going to restaurants. We did go to the beach. Once. So that's That's great. Being, we're still trying to make the best of it again can't believe it's August it's going to be you know Halloween before. and Thanksgiving and what I can't believe it. Anyway the years flying by guess. Thank. Thank goodness. Real quick. I do WANNA. Give a shoutout to my Nanna. She turns ninety years old this weekend and we're going to see her and celebrate responsibly. Of course, she came to this country after World War Two from southern Italy. She has had one child my Mama, and she just really the mainstay of our families I grew up with her my family built. Our House on her property is always right next door. So Happy Birthday Nana I hope you enjoy your big day and I can't wait to see you. We're going to have so much fun I mean as much fun as. As we can have and other than that. There's not much going on. I am a little devastated I have this tomato plant that I put my soul into the past few months. I know I'm rambling. But this is just this is how I'm feeling this morning I. Probably had a little too much coffee but anyway, there is this tomato plant that I've had and I've been talking to it and I've been loving it and I went and pick some tomatoes and one started to already on the vine and the other one just weren't good and I'm real. I'm heartbroken really upset. I've been looking forward to this moment with these tomatoes four months, and it's what has gotten me through twenty twenty and it has nothing but a disappointment so far. Hopefully. Maybe the next few that I picked will turn out better I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I'll look into it and maybe maybe better maybe better luck next year. So that is all the big news that I have for you. What's going on in my life I know it's like really really exciting but you know what actually is exciting is the stories that I have for you to date there bit all over the place oddly it's been both busy and slow in the entertainment world. Basically, the same stories just keep dominating I have an ellen update. This is the story that just won't quit I almost wonder if that this, we weren't in lockdown or this crisis. There wouldn't be as much of a media frenzy and attention. This story is really getting maybe ellen is just really really unlucky. We also have some music news we have MTV via nominations as well as new music from beyond San Brand Name. And I have a huge huge bachelorette update I mean if you WanNa talk about the most dramatic season ever I think we are about to get. Chris Harrison has been teasing the most dramatic season for almost twenty years and I think this I I think this. This will really really be. So this is some big news not considering this a spoiler I wanna make that very clear. I don't believe this is a spoiler. We're not talking about a winner anything. So stay tuned for that. I've also sprinkled in some news about Bryan Cranston Kendall Jenner and tiger because you know like why not I mean they're in the news let's talk about them. So you're not gonNA WANNA miss this episode and stay tuned until the very end I will be ranking the definitive hot or not ranking of ninety s heartthrobs I hope this turns out to be funny I. Think it well, because this list is absolutely insane So without further ado, let's just jump right on in let's just talk about Allen Right off the bat, get it out of the way. I hope this is the last time we really have to talk about her but at this rate, who knows I feel like every hour there's more to this story. So we all know what Ellen Degeneres has been accused of, and basically it boils down to her just being mean and that's putting. It mildly worn in media conducted an investigation on the allegations made against the talk show host, and since then Allen has penned a letter to her staff. This is big. So she finally address De. Last episode, we talked about how she's been silent. She Ellen has spoken. So I'm just going to read off a little bit of what she has said. I'm also learning that people who work with me and for me are speaking on my behalf and misrepresenting who I am, and that has to stop as someone who was judged nearly lost everything for just being who I am. I truly understand and have deep compassion for those being looked at differently or treated unfairly, not equal or worse disregarded to think that any one of you felt that way is awful. It's been way too long but we're finally having conversations about fairness and justice. We all have to be more mindful about the way our words and actions affect others and I'm glad the issues that are show were brought to my attention I promise to do my part in continuing to push myself and everyone around me to learn grow. I am so proud of the work we do and the fun, and joy we all helped put out in the world I want everyone at home to love our show and I went everyone who makes it to love working on it again, I am sorry anyone who didn't have that experience if not for Covid, I'd have done this person and I can't wait to be back on our stage and see you all then stay safe and healthy love Allen. Wow. That was a very by the book responds and one would think that it would just end there but no, oh no no no that would be far too simple. Not only are more allegations from staff members surface surfacing but other celebrities are even coming out of the woodwork with stories of their own. For instance, everybody loves Raymond Actor Brad Garrett claims that the mistreatment by generous is common knowledge. The actor took to twitter and even tagged her saying sorry. But it comes from the top Ellen I know more than one who were treated horribly by her it's common knowledge. Oh my goodness. So brutal Gwyn your peers really start coming after you like your celebrity peers at just. That is just wild. So everyone take a little breezy. Take A. We. Think this is it but no no. No there is. There is more because this is the story that just keeps going so now. Ellen is reportedly wanting out of her talk show I mean how she? How can she go on stage with this team? This big. Of celebrities have been reported. that. She has this big ego and these types of allegations are just so loud like so even. Even if Ellen ones of her show, then now who's going to replace her I mean there's so many questions and so many things up in the air I. Honestly don't know who would replace her I mean. I'll always have a flame for Oprah knows she's not coming back to daytime television. But I think a lot of shows try to be her, but it never works out for them and that's okay because we all can't. Be, Oprah. So. This is crazy. It's like every time I open the computer. There is just another story every time I open instagram. There's another story, the story that won't die I really hope story will end soon ellen ones out will she get out? It's unreal. So. I kind of feel like with the slower news cycles celebrity news cycles that is. Really, push this story to the top. There have always been murmurings about Allen not being nice for quite some time, and this story has just exploded in the last few months and it's a shame. Really. I think Alan really had the chance and the opportunity to be nice and at the end of the day she chose not to she built her whole brand on love and kindness and dancing and good vibes but this is. Ultimately what happens when you're just not your authentic self? Do I think that she deserves to have her show and her career quote canceled because she's a Mimi I don't think so but again, the damage is far too great and I think she addressed it far too late. If, she would've addressed as back when the twitter thread went viral. Months and months ago I do think that this all could have been avoided, but she was just too proud and it came off like she didn't care and that she was untouchable and. Here. We are in this mess. Two Days So sorry Ellen look at Your Life, look at your choices I mean the letter was very professional and they think pr did a good job of hitting all the right notes, all the struggles that you went through. But at the end of the day, if you're not a good person and if you don't treat others with respect, you cannot accept. Them to treat you in respect with respect back you know what I mean. So hopefully, we can close the door on the Ellen chapter soon and real quick while I am thinking about it nine Rivera and Regis Philbin have both been laid to rest naira. Vera was buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles following a private ceremony on July eighth. Naira era disappeared from a boat she rented with her four year old son Josey at Ventura County's late Pirro her death certificate has the cause of death being accidental drowning her ex husband and father to her four year old son states. This is so unfair. There's not enough words to express the whole left in everyone's heart I can't believe this is life. Now I don't know if I'll ever believe it. And we share that same sentiment truly heartbreaking also regis Philbin was also laid to rest at his beloved Alma Mater Notre Dame following a private ceremony on Wednesday according to people magazine Philbin graduated from Notre Dame in Nineteen fifty-three. With a sociology degree, he stayed involved with the school over the years donating two point seventy, five, million to the university in two thousand one to create be Philbin Studio Theater performance art venue on campus. He was also a Notre Dame's sports superfan. So I just wanted to close the door on that they will be missed. So after the break we're going to come back. I am going to talk a little bit about some Music News, as well as some piping hot Bachelorette T, and at the end I will be reading list of nineties teenage heartthrob.

I'm also a little sad because Ti. On something phenomenal. trl Or total request live was the show to watch after school. So while mom would watch oprah, we'd be watching Carson Daley break down the ten most requested music videos of the day that were voted by viewers calling in or going online MTV at the time lived for the music videos right now I don't even think they have music videos on MTV. Whatever music videos were so important and there is even a show called making the video. This was a thirty, a thirty minute program, and it would take viewers behind the scenes to see how a music video would be made. You would see it from pre-production to concept creation, and then like lighthearted moments on that, and it was really fun and interesting to see how a music video gets made. I think, and then at the end I, apologize at the end would be the premiere of the video. So there would be all of this built up, and then he would finally get the music video for your favorite song. I think my favorite I had to think about this. and. This is just because I was a fan girl but it was probably the episode with instinct when they released, it's going to be me. Oh. My goodness it was. Directed by Wayne Isham. It's crazy that video used very limited CGI which is almost unheard of these days I feel. Because I remember the director saying he wanted it to feel authentic and the whole theme of the video was in saying they were going off the puppet theme of the album and bye-bye by. But everything was built to scale and essentially. The the men of saying were these puppets in being sold at a toy store. So again, everything built to scale. It was really cool created this very weird but authentic vibe for the video. It was really good. So but now again mirrors like this. Anticipation of the music video right where now it's just like an artist releases it on on Youtube and then it just lives on youtube forever. There's no real build up a feel. For the most part we'll get into that next but. Before it was just so culturally ingrained. What how big music videos ours. So that's what I'm talking about like with the AMA's. Do these music videos really hold as much value and stock as they did back then and but. Talking. About the weight of a music video. Beyond say released her visual album for black is king, and now that is a music video I feel like that is what music videos should have or could have evolved into one can do it quite like the Queen herself. This is. The are you can easily do a full hour on justice I mean you'd have to I would have to have time to really sit and digest and break it down and watch it over and over and over and over. It's just. So visually stunning. It is absolutely incredible. And it really is a spectacular piece of art, and so we also have to acknowledge that beyond directed and executive produced this blocking the king is available exclusively on Disney plus which seems to be pumping out a lot of content right now. So gave them. The album slash cinematic experience based on beyond say soundtrack the lion king the gift, which was the twenty nineteen Disney remake of the film. And it's a movie for today's young kings and Queens in search of their own crowns Disney said in a release and it's a quote celebratory memoir for the world on the black experience. Notable guests in this beautiful cinematic experience is Naomi Campbell Lupita New Ongo and Kelly role in the all make appearances as well as. Who Arguably steals the spotlight I? Mean this little girl knows how to own every single scene. She is an how can she not with parents beyond and Jay z? The entire production is just beyond beyond sicken sticking mainly. Stunning. Like I, watch over and over I, highly recommend it. If you are one of the three people on the planet that don't like beyond, say this won't absolutely make you a believer I parameters. So. But in more music news, we have brandy haven't heard that name in a while Burundi has released her first album in eight years. Her last album to eleven was released in twenty twelve. Now, her new album be seven is here and you guys I'm so excited about this. This is like millennial Stoja but rather than just rehashing what's already done, we are given something new, but it carries that nostalgic brandy. Oh my goodness this is a true gift. I'm so thrilled. That, we're finally getting this new content you guys and it's a huge week for brandy because her ninety s Sitcom a- wishes now streaming on netflix aches. Like. Now that is true. Millennial Nostalgia and I'm just sitting here waiting again. Disney. Even doing a lot of good stuff you gave us you gave us beyond, say you give us Hamilton and now I'm just waiting for you to add Cinderella to your streaming library. Please please at it for the again for those who don't know what I'm talking about. In. One thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, seven, this TV musical called Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella premiered to sixty million viewers establishing itself at the time is the most watched television musical in decades I remember commercials for this I remember sitting on the floor in the living room I can remember the feel of the carpet underneath me and we all sat around the living room on a Sunday night with my parents my brother. And we watch Cinderella and Brandy Played Cinderella Whitney Houston was the fairy godmother Whoopi. Goldberg. Was the Queen Victor Garber also known to me as Mr Andrews from titanic was the King Bernadette Peters as a stepmother I mean Jason Alexander was in it. It was so so so wonderful the Prince Palo Monto blind. I believe his name is pretty positive he he was in it was just inclusivity at its absolute finance I will post a picture of the cast on our instagram and twitter account. So you can see it was groundbreaking. It was wonderful. Anyway Cinderella needs to be streaming because it's absolute perfection cast the music. The costumes. It's just pure Misao Jeb. Love it and. We're going to switch gears really quick. We're going to touch on Taylor, swift. She has had a great week with the surprise album folklore. But. Right. Now, Taylor swift is rebranding her album merge after a black owned business accused her team of ripping off its design. Amira Russell founder of the online retailer. The folklore has accused the pop star last week of selling merchandise that ripped off the logo of her company, which sells apparel and accessories and other products by designers in Africa. Amir took to instagram to claim based on this similarity of the design. I believe designer of the merge ripped off my company's Logo I'm sharing my story to bring light to the trend of large companies and celebrities copying the work of small minority owned business owners am not going to let this blatant theft go unchecked. Now Taylor and her team were super quick to suspend the selling of her merchandise and on the website and they changed the design I do think that Taylor and her do I think that Taylor and her team blatantly ripped off a mirror design? No do I think the design trope is rather common and they would have benefited from doing a little bit more research. Absolutely. Absolutely. Oppose the pictures on instagram. So you can see at the end of the day like I said both designs. are similar it uses various. like Trendy I guess designed tropes. I. Don't think there was any ill will. But Taylor and her team just no questions asked her like you are right. We are going to fix this. So that is so that's really good happy for Taylor. This is why she is the Queen. A Mirror commented that she commenced Taylor's team for recognizing the damage the merchandise caused to the company. The the folklore is brand and I recognize that she has been a strong advocate for women protecting their creative rights. So it was good to see her team is on the same page Taylor we stand and we love her she is always setting a really good example. So again, I will post these pictures online and you be the judge. So that's really it for the Music News Right. Now again, you can always check out more news with Keith at the MC music podcast. Check him out his wonderful. When we come back I have.

Welcome back to the JESS MC entertainment podcast. We have talked Allen beyond say brandy. Now it is time to switch gears and talk reality television. I am talking about one of the most talked-about shows and reality TV love it or hate it. You know you've talked about it the Bachelorette. I have some bachelor spoilers here. Said this is it right now this is your warning if you want to stay spoiler free icing Jesse fast forward a few minutes. Let us chat. We're going to have a great time. The, go go ahead. Okay. So is it just us now are right now that it's just us crazy let's chat. Let's have a heart to heart. Let me ask you is Clare Crawley already engaged guys I know this is so wild I have been a fan of the show for a long time like Andrew firestone is my favorite bachelor longtime. You know what I mean I watched Clare till off one Pablo in real time I have never never ever ever heard rumors quite like this. So you know Clare Season of the Bachelor has already been incredibly dramatic production had to have been Poe had to be postponed due to the global pandemic production actually just recently started at like we resort and club in Lexington California. So. Spoiler I'm not sure how much it matters but spoiler the first impression rose went to and remember whoever gets the first impression rose historically. Is. The winner. Okay. So the first impression rose went to Dale Moss now. Rumor has it Clare is ready to quit the show by girl is done. It's only been filming for two weeks I. Oh my Gosh. So how is this even possible? Okay. So the season started filming July nineteenth and this is after the cast and crew were already in quarantine for two weeks before they're taking this very seriously. It's a huge deal that the show is being able to be filmed right now I mean they have. It's really great how they're doing it from what I hear and I don't know one hundred percent. This is true. But what I am hearing is that cast and crew are being tested I. Think every three days. Again, not. That's just a rumor that I heard, but it's interesting if that is what they're doing. So. Anyway. She's only been filming for two weeks. So she has still plenty of show to go. Now, of course, he's under contract, right? So she can't quit although that would be the most dramatic sees an ever way more dramatic than Colton season. By I'm starting to think that they have come to some kind of an agreement whether it's amicable or not I mean that's a whole different story. Maybe she decided to just quit and they're okay with or her maybe she was fired and so let's let's unpack this one piece at time number one. Clare's men were first announced back. We're first announced back in March, before things shut down, the list was out there on the Internet for the whole world to see. And then all of a sudden. The world shut down and filming for the season had to be. postponed. That gave Clare plenty of time to Google. These men and you know she did, and although many of the men didn't make the final cut when production got push-back, it could be for many reasons it could be scheduling conflicts for the men. But. Not all the men in this original. Blast of men who are going to be on the show came back. But who did come back? Was Dell. That's right. Dale was on the original list now. Clare was very active on social media during the shutdown. She even started to call out men for an quote not being there for the right reasons. Some of these men started cameo accounts and she said, well, you know if you're starting these cameo accounts than you're obviously. In it for the fame because we all know how much fame you get being on these shows and you're not actually in it for me. So what I think happened is I think that Clare and Dale starting chatting months ago. So really this isn't a two week relationship right? They could have been talking since March for all we know. So this March February march. February march march a borough April may June July. Five months. Plenty of time to fall in. Love. So. Now let's say they've been talking. He stays committed to the show. He goes on he and Claire have already been chatting. He gets the first impression rose maybe he even gets the first one on one date. Now. Clare doesn't want to film anymore imagine if you will. She no longer wants to date or pretend to be with these other men allegedly she's even refusing to continue filming and his remaining locked in her hotel room like she's done girl is out of it she wants it to end. Now. Number two. Last weekend producers reached out to back up bachelorette contestants who had been vetted for Clare Season but we're ultimately ultimately not cast to film at La Quinta. So what they'll do is they'll for for this season, for example, they'll bring. A. Bunch of men. Al Quarantine get ready and then right before I mean usually get in the limo right before you get into the Limo, they can make cuts say though like five people, for example. I'm not sure exactly how many cuts they made here at the last minute but so producers are reaching back out. So when producers reached back that out of the blue is very apparent something. Had happened with. Production. So, what could this something be well? Again. This is he's spoiler ish but apparently. Clare is out. Adams is in rumors of this replacement have been swirling around read it and fan facebook groups. Notorious Boiler Reality Steve has yet to one hundred percent confirm at the time of this recording but can say that after hours of digging that he does things, there's some validity to the rumor after a recent go against bachelor alum Nick Reality Steve's making sure to dot his I's and cross all of his ts before leaking all of this officially to the public notation atoms who we met we met tation on Colton season. Colton poor thing she totally deserves another chance. To show was a fan favorite on the season and then leader appeared on Bachelor in paradise where she had a connection JP Jay or John Paul Jones from Hannah Brown season. So. Although the two didn't end up engaged because you know she's realistic. They did continue their relationship off the beach, but ultimately, it didn't work out. Amidst all of these rumors taste you didn't post to her instagram on Friday she posted a silhouette of herself. Now it's totally possible that production is allowing her to post on her instagram to kind of throw things off and to keep fans guessing. I think show would be an amazing Bachelorette. If all of this is true which I think is it will be as Chris. Harrison. says the most dramatic season ever I'm really curious to see how production decides to spin all of this. Will we have a week or two of watching Claire like a normal season? Will it be like a two night event where night wine is like a normal episode and then night to everything Kinda goes crazy will they break the audience with what happened? Will it be? The first hour is normal and then it gets crazy. I'm just I'm really really really curious. The editors have a lot to work with some. I'm so excited to see how the editing will go down. So I also wonder is clear going to be shunned by Bachelor nation, right? Like will she do the media rounds? will she be embraced by causing so much chaos that could result in high ratings I remember when Kaitlyn Bristowe accidentally spoiled her season I mean she was out of trouble for that I mean it's a little different because she's spoiled the ending of the show Clare's not even finishing the show and we're getting we might I think we are, but we might be getting a new Bachelorette. So I'm really excited to see how. To see how all of this is going to go down and play out moving forward. So There's that. Okay and so now just more quick news in Bachelor nation. Former bachelorette Rachel Lindsay has some choice words for her fellow Bachelorette Becca Conference, Fiance Garret. This whole story makes me so so sad. So Rachel Lindsay and Becca cover not only are they both former Bachelorette's that found love on the show, but they also hosts a podcast together and they're very good friends. Of frustrated Lindsey lamented about Garrett quote. We had a podcast about diversity and what was going on in the country. And her fiance posted a blue lives matter picture and with his whole chest gave a long explanation as to why he felt that way. So I got on the podcast saying it was problematic and what he meant to me and we both got emotional and there was just like I'm tired of every. I'm tired that everyone woke up and twenty twenty and realized that racism exists. It's been happening. She said some more choice words that I won't repeat on this podcast but you're more than welcome to go online you will find them. During BECCA and Rachel's initial podcast about race back. Made it clear that her views didn't line up with Garrett's opinions but she also kind of defended him right like. You WanNa to stick up for your friend and what's right. But then also he's your fiance and you want to for them to understand that initial. Response. In the following week. becca apologize to Rachel when Rachel asked where the relationship where their relationship stands. BECCA and Garett that goes simply said I don't know. So since then the two have not been seen together a post anything about each other on social media, they may have commented on each other's posts but there has been no post for the past two months of the two of them together, which makes me wonder if their relationship has. Come to an end because of this, most at most notably BECO was absent from a wedding where Garrett was Ingraham's men so it. Always makes me a little sad when this when these relationships don't actually work out like I said, I am a huge fan of the franchise. Not only do I, love drama. But I do get invested very much into their stories. So man that's all that I have on bachelor slash Bachelorette news other than this I will not be reporting on any spoilers like who choose who or how these group dates went or who got the group date rose or who got the to unwind. So I'm not going to split anything like that but. Getting a new lead that that's a big deal so I don't really consider that spoiling. We're just pressing the reset button on that one. So moving forward no spoilers I promised. So when we come back I have some news about Jessica Biel Justin Justin Timberlake. We're going to talk Tiga Kendall Jenner and even Bryan Cranston, and then at the very end, I'm going to rank of a list that I am giving my top nineties teenage heartthrobs. WanNa miss it. It's going to be kind of funny. I took a peek at this list. It's a little wild so Stay tuned we'll be right. Back. Golden state media concepts, bring you book review podcast. I haven for bookworm of all ages and the whitest genres from mystery to memoirs romance to Comedy Fantasy Scifi. If you love to read, this is the podcast for you. It's the Golden. State. Concepts Book Review Podcast. It's been another jam packed episode for you guys but there is still more we are rounding out with some Happy Baby News Jessica Biel in Justin timberlake welcome the new bundle of joy into the world and yet. That's it. That's that story. There are no more facts rate now there's no name. No. When the child was born, we just know this from Brian McKnight. I mean all that coming Jessica Justin and their son stylists have been spending their time in Montana the pandemic really helped keep this pregnancy a secret. So lucky for her she was able to hide her pregnancy, keep it private, which I'm sure they loved, and now we get to spend their time soaking in this time together as a family of four without any distractions of. Having to work because you know. Pandemic. So congratulations to them. Also. We have a little Kendall Jenner News This is this is. Fine I just love home stuff. So Kendall Jenner has graced us with the cover of architectural digest what caught my eye on the cover and I'm sure it did most people is this like pink glow? ORB type of thing. And it's actually a wall sculpture which is animating shifting computer-programmed led lights and it's by artist James Tyrrell. So when I saw the cover I'm like, what is this orbit turn? It's art in her house and it lights up and it's she wanted it to be the focal point and it does its job. I, will say going through the issue, her house is much more homer than many of her famous sisters. It has a lot of lush carpeting, cozy couches, a really rustic dining area. I am really a big fan of her kitchen i. am loving this Benjamin Moore thiel cabinets, which is very different than what people have been doing with white on white. She has the Marble countertops in the back splash. And instead of doing white cabinet, she opted for -til which I. Think gives it a lot of character and a lot of personality that's definitely up my alley. Her one bathroom. Is just spectacular. It gives me so much bathroom and VR share a picture of it on instagram. It I. Do like a very nice clean spotlight bathroom. It's always very refreshing and very zen leg. But what she's done with this green mosaic tile and Marble Sink and copper sconces. Love it feels to me very like Italian Riviera just definitely my speed I think we're gonNA start seeing a lot of. Design coming. So I am looking forward to that and my poor husband. We'll probably have to take the credit card from me. I will just want to completely redesign the house so. There's that next we're GONNA touch on Bryan Cranston real fast. He revealed that he had corona virus the breaking bad actor shared a video of himself donating his antibody positive plasma for research and encouraging people to wear a mask Cranston says he's lucky to have mild symptoms which included a slight headache tightness of the chest and loss of taste and smell Oh, God that's mild. The actor and noted. that. The actor noted about how you're probably feeling a little down restricting your mobility and like me you're tired of this why just want to encourage you to have a little bit more patience I was pretty strict in adhering to the protocols instill contracted the virus. This is a very good ps a thank you Bryan Cranston, and that was my dog barking in the Background that was little Wilson if you heard him so I'll he wants to be he wants to be on the podcast too. So happy that Mr Cranston is doing well, I here's a really nice guy. He seems like a cool dude and I appreciate the example, but he is studying so gay Bryan Cranston lastly and I have to touch on this As, someone who worked for the company I don't know why I'm so obsessed with this story but rapper Robert Tiga launches a chicken nugget virtual restaurant chain. I am so obsessed with the story I cannot stop reading about it. I think, I've read every outlay about this. I don't know why it's captured my attention so much. So that's why I'm telling you guys but tiger has partnered with restaurant to Robert Earl and celebrity chef Eric Greenspan and they have launched together Tiga Bites Tiger Bites are antibiotic Free Oven Baked Boneless Chicken Bites, which are only available through grub hub. So, there's no brick and mortar store that will say tiger bites on the top this virtual kitchen. So Robert Earl is using his existing restaurants to cook and prepare the food and then grub hub drivers. Pick it up and deliver it to you. Robert Earl and earl enterprises owns chains such as planet Hollywood the BEPPO or two cheese chicken guy and more so. Essentially. What happens is say, for example, Buca Di, Beppo is pumping out possible for people in the dining room in their restaurants but then they're also sending out tiger bites and tiger todd's to online grab hub orders. So that's kind of how it works if you're in a Buca di Beppo or planet Hollywood or. I I. Don't know which exactly restaurants are participating. That's where that's where this food is actually coming from. So I'm not. GonNa, lie I'm definitely going to be trying this. I. Am a dipper when it comes to fries and chicken tenders like give me all of the sauces Melissa Tiger has given us actually sounds really scrunches. So they include spicy honey Korean, barbecue, Bourbon Mango Habanero, which is the one I really want a General Sao. Tamarind. Orange Caribbean homestyle ranch chunky blue cheese garlic Parmesan, Buffalo I. Mean. Talk has good taste. Let's see. Did. You see what ended their? Tag Good taste was a reference to attack us. So. Anyway that is that's kind of it on the entertainment news for right now. So, let's move on to again one of my favorite segments of the show this wildcard segment. have. Fun. So I got lost at looking at buzzfeed lists which according to tectonic Gin's ears is a very millennial thing to do and I came across this list of the definitive hot or not ranking of ninety s heartthrobs. So I'm going to go through the side of the list. I'M NOT GONNA do not part. The tagline for this article is referring everyone who ever crushed on ever. Ever. All right. I will be the judge of that. So let me know on Instagram or twitter if you agree with me or not I'd love to hear what you have to say. So I'm going to go through this list and then I'm GonNa give you my top fat, my top five ranking. Based on the list so. Here we go. We have have number one Jonathan. Taylor. Thomas. God Yes jt.

You can go on urban dictionary. Check it out right now or you place in this clip in two thousand twelve. This is credited as the origin of black similarly in the urban dictionary entry by ed ed millan hausky the guy who does all urban dictionary adam. He's also guy that made up the actual windbreaker with adams number on the back for the penis measurement windbreakers. He's hilarious he credits. This is the very first time this has been set. It comes with almost no fanfare so i wanna say it's not the origin of black simic's. It's almost like they've all heard it before but i think adam's just being super cleverness words in says it on the spot and actually is the origin according to ed so if you open earlier appearance let us know. I don't think exists adam cruel show nine ten. It's a featuring dave damasec. Jay glazer rosen brian bishop september twenty twelve. Check it out mm-hmm. I miss the thing i miss about mile high and the old mile high in denver is the guy in the barrel yet naked in the barrel. He actually had a i. I remember reading about online he he's hung well. The fifth time is cock came out of the bunghole. They had to had to retire the barrel or he had to put some shorts on on which officially refused to do so anyway they parted ways. They agree to disagree barrowman narrow barrowman. I like it when we're so uncreative that we just go. Who shall we call this guy. Well is wearing a barrel and he's dude. I got you how about barrowman. There was like rainbow rainbow head. What do we call like. What are we natives. Let's give them a cool name. Is this rainbow head barrowman. I contend that when these guys once they've established published themselves you know twenty five thirty years of walking around mile hind white boots in a barrel by the way now he's barrowman find. It must have been a tough sell the first weekend he tried to barrowman routine just going through the turnstile block and everyone getting stoddart you can't you're you're naked. You're wearing nancy sinatra's boots. I can see your cock and it's minus twenty two degrees with the wind chill up here. This is not acceptable. I'm but i'm a big fan so the jets have <hes> what firemen pete or whatever his name is yeah. I want these guys. These guys ed. These guys are going to die and i want them out there. I want ed it depends on the firemen had this guy to pass on the barrel. I want the rainbow guy after he tried to abduct emerging. Oh they don't relate that the cat there was always a black cowboy at texas stadium. There was always that middle aged black with the moustache and he would always take the viking. There was a viking mascot the big willy beer and he take the viking pennant and he would wipe the sweat off his yes with it. I was every time it's like this. Sixty was like a it was like a mixture he was like don king meets the the sixth village person and it was a fixture and all i'm saying is is hey listen find a reasonable blacks emily and put him in that outfit and sent him out there. We don't do a dna check. I i wouldn't go wait a minute that guys like four pounds lighter than the other guy. You know i'm drunk. The season passes for g to talk. That's a callback. They knew black cowboy. I want barrowman back back when when firemen ed goes away he's gonna buy went rainbow head back. I went all these guys other people's problems. That's other cities to worry about. We have to worry about. I'm a bald bryan beneficial. He's got the obvious name. He's got obvious nickname ready to go number one fan bald brian. He's the horns on the side. That's right for the origin of black similarly in case. You're wondering now geos a pretty upset that he didn't get credit for the black similarly but i gave them a little credit.

What's our next one well. This is comes from rule show. Twenty-three eighty-one featuring traci lords robbery dr drew gina grad and brian bishop. This is before traci lords or drawer studio just rob riggle. This is from july twenty eighteen and i had been our cobbing some old love line and i found a clip that that contain a drop that was used a torture adam for years that makes them selling canadian about the world being your waster than anderson loved the play. Adam swore is out of context. We can never find the origin origin to prove it because we didn't have the episode after almost nineteen years i found the episode archived at cut. The clip emailed it as soon as i found it and they played at the next day and it was great two thousand eighteen world is your choice ter- it's my pleasure. We got lots to talk about with rob. I got stuff to talk about too. Good day gina granddaddy eighty. You and bob ryan big dude angry dude in each yelling. That's as well. There's a lot of yellow bat. There's a latino alabama right. We finally lots <hes> lots breaking in the corolla world hair. We got the <hes> some closure to drop drop that is probably close to twenty years in the making and was a famous drop that but <hes> well engineer anderson used to drop all the predate me i think it does although oh you you will remember the drop but i feel like that was it was more of an anderson thing than it was brian thing and it was one that made maybe sounds hokey and corny and stupid and it always bothered me and anderson always play it knowing it would bother me and i always said it's out of context. There's more context to it. I it's pretty corny and sappy and i just don't roll that way although if you talk long enough on the radio every night you don't have a script i i suppose you could say some corning sappy but we'll play the drop as it was brian will remember it from two thousand february two thousand over over eighteen years ago. Here's the one brand and the loveline fans remember remember. The world is your sister. I mean because that's all the world world. Is i remember for years after that. That's the only drop you'd respond to buy out of context well. It is what i said was not edited or cook but i said there's something more to it. I was doing something out of context making fun of somebody. That is not me so. I was like there must be something else to it but i couldn't really do remember. Where were you. Were going with that. I have no no concept we would sit there all night blabber all night and anderson brian whomever would grab these things and they play him some time later and you have no real idea what was going on at least i drew didn't seem to have any recollection of it either. There was all andersen back in the day. I it was a low lowly call screener and the engineer who would do all these sound effects the one that i suggested for him that i was very proud of because it went on for many years you were talking you. You were talking construction. Talk on love line on the on the love advice show that we had construction and carpentry talking gold a boring bit which would use a bit for a drill. You sure too boring and i'm mike boring did get that trump. Got it every once in a while then when you heard about something boring bed that didn't bother me. I felt that was clever but this i felt i was misquoted and it may be sound corny and sappy and i didn't. I didn't like it because it wasn't dr laura we're trying to accomplish over there and a- it always bothered me but i never could find out what the origins of it were context was was before the digital world you will literally had to go get tapes and go back and listen to them or something like going back and checking all right well dig to the archives physically dig through the archives would never been labeled like this is to one so i moved on because that's what i do. I do what bob seger turn the page uh-huh could song song so i turn the page and move on and eighteen and a half years years later i get an email from super van giovanni who has the show who stumbled across the show when he's doing all his archiving suzdak won't turn the page that's right so he finds the origin of it and he plays it and when you hear it you still go <hes> but then you'll realize i was referring when i said that's all the world really is or something like that. I was talking about what i was talking about before hand so we'll play the whole oh good play the whole thing now in contact what this content contents thank you listen everybody <hes>. I don't know why in this country we don't put a premium on psychology is the biggest most important thing you can do for your life for your family. What have you all that. I'm on enroll here the media when you figure out how your life works what your past was how it how how it <hes> permeates your life today how it affects your decision making today <hes> the world is your choice ter- i mean because that's all the world is break it down. That's what it is yeah. All it is is psychology but not your that's interesting is an artist cherry. He's saying that i do feel fulfilled. I have a much better picture <hes> for piece of history for the love line fans. Oh good because you're not wrong on cloud. You saw me when i entered. This place weren't touching. No one knows how you feel better than i do. I don't know if you're familiar with this or if you've i heard it but do you know what brian did to me. Of course it's hurting you. Listen to our episodes several tests so you're familiar with the song yeah but let's hear it again. I know how you know so i say things all the time that are taken out of context but nobody cares. Brian lives for it. I'm quoting someone a new news story. I'm making a joke about something. I'm giving a for example. I assume someone's name ryan collects them and when he and i did the show together when adam outta town <hes> he surprised me with this little love letter yeah ooh. Anybody didn't set this up with anybody. I dive centre. Todd brown's gonna play. It said i haven't heard this yet. Eh it smacks of annoying annoying little brother sergio where we were going to do this little thing i retired one of gina's out of context drops for fear that it would come to drop the drop by the way no one. No one in this room built that thing at all you. You're the one no. I understand that i deal with notified. We play klay today. That said i was going through the drops that we have collected over the years and they were just too many so i put genie talked too fucking much snow. You dick unbreathable. I have a really ugly voice that people assume super hissy little country l. a. face with an oakland booty you you old miss them. Maybe they should change their name to mall of brad hesitate nigga i assume would you like me to make banana cry. I love blackhawk doc. I didn't want to give you b._j.

I took the golden ginger pretty and we're back now. I love that drop. The world is your choice ter- i remember anderson playing it a lot. <hes> threat love line and i went to the final reporting levine and they were playing on a bunch too so it never died not before <hes> love light did love died first before the explanation of where that actually yeah. There's actually a funny little tidbit on the old love line v._h._s. tapes that i got from anderson which were from the security camera at the very end. You've seen him standing over the board. Cutting little clips of adam andrew andrew embarrass them so we could see him cut the drops in mealtime and how he would edit out <hes> ex- extra information on either side of it seem less insane so he would just narrow it down to things does he could later embarrass them with them. Like a old chinaman's beard adam describing the hair <hes> downstairs who's cutting that one for about three and a half minutes after an episode either just watching this is what he did in real time yeah you gotta admire that kind of the liberace's potentialities yeah i i would agree now. Last last as we can gio you played the two thousand twelve as awards and it was a huge hit. Everybody loved the first huge hits so much and then sunday show played blade the rest of it and it went great so let's do it again.

We're we're back with the ace awards and still plenty of show to go. We have the most awkward moment. I'm curious. Guest of the year ran to the air. I'm all okay. I'm curious about all this like if you'd said to me <hes> you don't know what the rain through the year is but give me one you think might be give me one of the top five or top ten or something something i i have no idea i would have no idea guest to the air would have no idea every year <hes> would do the ace awards. I look forward to the most sneakily under the radar. The previously awarded montage uh-huh rapid fire best of the year all funny bits. You know what i mean. It's funny refresher of ozone best musical guest as well. The next category police in a ceremony held earlier awards were handed out in the following categories teresa strasser for best out of context clip. I was pulling this earth for one thing and one thing only sucking foot long cock adam corolla for most gracious victory to jamaicans demons for each running through nineteen ninety <music> <music> for most ironically named guest the most interesting man in the world but it's not due to foreign what we we did to thanksgiving by shoving a bunch of golden raisins in it cooking trao. Just put the turkey in the oven. Let's get some stuff in and call the night scaring bring jonathan but you you're with me. There's nothing was there anything broken about porn. No i'm just thinking about one good morals clause in alabama all right. We'll take it easy with your weight. As a morals clause sells beer for a living if you have a morals clause sandwiched between two foxy kicks security expert for fast new character this morning on on peter tilden showy interviewed this israeli who used to be the head of security at l. All is he was so angry about not essay and the people that they hire to do the security in their entire system and an angry israeli very hilarious. You know jeop- from shit five times as angry.

But my have been told me hit song of the year rich banks for coming on the tits drops on her chest like paratroop buyers all instead just finishing up who do poll out joe dick lebeau man coming it on the caller of the year randy from craig's list randy i'm here. You're selling rue mcclanahan book. Yes i am and <hes> you live in hollywood. Yes i i do all right. It's my hypotheses that says it again. It's my hypotheses yeah that this is a gay rooms all of these things. It's just an attempt to meet dudes on every new adam. My feary is that you grip even window. You're great and i can't believe you didn't talk about it on the man show writer in my right at first off. You have to be gay and second lewis. You're right. I think adam that you kind of tuck it under your mattress next year flaker all that kind of thing when you pan leave when you need to use the bathroom do keep that you just open up room planet fuck. It doesn't matter what chapter it is the beginning of the end mike. I'm adam corolla the man borough almo- the facts. I love your view again. Get it going for five dollar <noise> but i will give them a discount. I will sell it for four dollars because is jimmy. Kimmel has his own show called. L. have rarely do i get insulted and save dollar. Wow that was all previously awarded awards. I like every part of the award. Show yeah me too. It is that in memoriam thing and it said i don't know why something satisfied about it all right moving on with the ace awards <hes> dawson. Would you like to reveal the next category. This is for best musical guest. These actual artists who came in the studio and performed the nominees for best musical gassed are hanson it took uh-huh phillips deal sure and when we go so far <music> and they're gone <music> neil they get to the part about coming on the oh aw what does four minute waits breathless charm <hes> range. It costs really listen to us a little trump silvers right about the wing ball that going winners so funny. My dad turning like a big musical. Ham is really at this. I'm doing some math by the time he's a hundred and thirty five. He's gonna can be ready for knotsberry farm. Yeah that's demand. Benjamin button fund. It's really weird because i must have been the seventies or something the whole time. I was growing up with him. He played the trump at once in a while. He never saying it was like it was like got away from him and then all of a sudden he turn like got into his seventies on the horn found him again. Which makes you wonder like what's going to happen to us. I'll send i'm gonna wake up seventy one ago. They got a harp. Go <hes> gimme that harp. I gotta play that harp. Wonder what's going to happen. Well anyway the winner. The best musical gas a legacy jim karol everybody all all right boy. What are we got to accept his award personally but he's at the clippers game except for the lights are on yeah yeah. He's he's courtside. <music> likes the clippers guarantees never been to a clever game. What would you if i said <hes>. My dad was sitting here telling me how much you like the clippers as last time he did this show. What have i said this brian. What if i said this <hes> <hes> you give me one hundred dollars l. to my five thousand dollars. I'll give you my dad's been to a clippers game fifty to one shot would you would you would you take those odds. I would take those odds based on the odds and also because maybe someone look like a a work friend. You know there could be a client story. The story accidentally ended up there after like a jazz club one night. He was coming back in the sports. Arena could be story there. It's like the time he knew. Dr drew's last name when we <hes> when we did my terrestrial morning show i brought him in and <hes> i did this thing with him. I said look. I'm going to give you a five thousand thousand dollars. If you can name the radio station that i was on for the last eleven years that was day one of the show by the day one of the show and <hes> he came up with some of the name to be fair to him. He couldn't come up with the one oh six point seven k rock part but he came up with like cape row iraq or somebody. Somebody couldn't come up with a number where it was on the dial that much i knew <hes> i said i had five five or ten grand in it for him. He could come up with the name of the puppet. Show that i did on <hes> <hes> i did on comedy central and by the way i think coincidentally jimmy was wearing a crank yankers shirt at the time which we thought might trigger something but it didn't come up with that and then i think i said i'd give him like thirty five hundred dollars if he could come up with dr drew's last name and he said pinski okay and i said what because there's one thing i know it's people and their consistency and i and there's loveline fans. Who might we know that you know what i mean. The casual loveland fan may not know that's not out there every day and i said how that maybe it was five grand. I was so sure he wouldn't know doctors. There's last name and <hes> he had arranged a meeting or somebody with him a consultation or something with with him days earlier and looked up his name or found out his name just so you can never count on these things. That's my point. I would have given fifty you don't want on the last name of drew except for who would have known about my dad living out in pasadena drew working out in pasadena and some sort of consultation on medical thing two days earlier right. Thank you drew all right. <hes> shall we get to <hes> what would have or next <hes> most awkward moment. I'm confused curious as to the nominees for most awkward moment are theresa and brad garrett for oral sex discussion. If i'm ranking i wouldn't even put giving before receiving really that's all we'll you know i i find it. Interesting <music> give pleasant guilty. When you go like empress shell spector for phil spector discussion. I i mean the media portrays him to be some type of convicted of murder so you're saying that he's not nearly as as eccentric as we all are laid to believe it was just all folk tales and stories and that wouldn't happen with larry miller instance <hes> the guests and create the wall of sound and change the way music against today either but that's another that's completely separate subject that being sort of nutty nutty whatsoever. I'm not trying to put him down. Sounds like it s but what i'm saying is he obviously cultivated this. This is sort of the tension like their hairstyles for his hair. I'm not saying he's here to talk about. The right guy produced their release new material almost thirty years and dag dag insults theresa's book. Hey tell me about terry's carey's book all. I know i feel like a lifetime eleven seconds off your first off the process work. Do they approach you for a lot of this was your experience while pregnant right around my my brother's i brag about being you know what that is an amazing idea. I'm this is supportive september. I've never heard what concept about a woman writing about wanting would happen when you're knocked up good luck with that wow and the winner the most awkward moment dag theresa's drive draft yeah bag for still specter without luntz. She was unseating kooky by by the way whenever you know i was just watching something on <hes> john lennon john lennon wanted to work with phil and all that kind of stuff and you know they're just interviewing people and they're like well. You know working for phil was tough because he's nuts and he's you know he keeps a gun and he's always waving that gun around and like by the way. How many years can you wave a gun around. You know what i mean before. How how nutty can you be. And how long long can you wave a gun around before somebody gets a bullet in the mouth and it was so weird thing where it was like i mean it was it was just they sort of glossed ostovic during this retrospective john lennon but it was like yeah it was understood that if you worked with phil you had to deal with him and his gun and people for kind of freaked out by it but it was like no one would take it away from him and i it's kind of a weird society we live in and if you think about it or maybe it was is like there's lots of rules but on the other hand the crazy guy's got a gun and no one's really going to say anything about it so it was pretty obvious that this guy loved gunplay loved crazy hair and he was just clearly just out to lunch. Don't love anyone thing too much because you end up creating a lot of circumstantial evidence against yourself like jay. Leno is implicated in running over somebody who the dues embarrassing yeah it. It wouldn't take a lot to believe that yeah and it's like his <hes> his yes <hes> defense that it could have been any stanley steamer in burbank is not gonna hold up real good us all right. Shall we move onto the next category. Wow <music> guest of the year excited for this one. The nominees for guest of the year are stephen at nine personnel in that van was the one who stood up to everybody right and was the warning want to have a chance to say hey our actual in the middle of the first song once or twice throwing them down. I don't leave. Let's go back there and do you can't do that and our playing. I remember when we were going to concerts. I'll harder to work to save up the money to buy tickets to go see our favorite pan. All those people just did that for us. We can just do one sophomore and then go back out there. You're like paul revere during the raiders would have done that on my real fuck. I hear i'm leaning on a lamppost shot. Two lines just keep getting getting harder to find cherokee basis and then steps right off the hell. No i was raiders dressing fool outfit uh-huh we were young and we all it when you're young and have grown up with nothing and all of a sudden. Here's everything i mean when you with the drug scene back then we wouldn't have to open our mouth. I honestly i think it and we're gonna look down day and there'd be drug sober now or make i. I did drove thirty the years again. Just take all the way. I'm always so it was it was it so you're saying back in the day. When you guys were touring landing in your lap that real we do say that the shows weren't as good is they put a band because of the draws the near the end of my plan and i threw every for twenty years. I blamed you know science and is now so search for letting me down i they let me down but then when i started working out in droves and you know listen john working with them i i realized that they didn't let me down. I mean i took everything and threw it all away. I know high rises over going down by fire in hand. Those buildings fell at the rate of gravity in ten seconds flat so we're close to so i had heard at that when the impact of the plane knocked a lot of that stuff off of these beams and then when when the jet a fuel started burning the beams melted but to that you would say what holds spot who's behind you ah we'll never know from a type of his behind. I think they're just certain area of government which probably participate later moves per part what way turn a blind eye or actually participate well. I mean and putting them down by themselves. So you're saying that there were explosives in most in the building at the end of my second season of mad i was taking thirty day. I stopped showing up to like table retail schedules. <hes> intervention there was buying showed up and said get it together. Yeah there's a poster of him and then i threw on my bike and right and they you know the schedule connie chung sketch and i felt fine right right and so this friday comes about those shoot diskette connie chung he put me in the makeup and i'm sitting in the makeup chair and i start shaking like to the yeah i thought i was like i felt my organs thirty day for cowl a couple of years a couple years so no drinking too on top i am the set and audience and the lights turn on kgo action and i go good evening. I'm and i was gonna say chronic sean and i'm saying dang it. You really have in my pants while you can see it. Come down and stonking really cut right we wearing wearing pants or a skirt dressed up as showing. I'm getting a horse and i remember dick. Lucia executives looking at in gone. You're gonna to do this. I don't care you're finishing taking five in a sketch taking hours any line by line and so a packing up my dressing room. I remember none of the cast of the vitamin edible with the last show of the season. I remember crying off a lot like i just fucked up when your career the provocative moving disturbing and the guest of the year steven adler from guns and roses it's like that all the main story and <hes> nice to see him sober any consolation to the runner-up ed asner his <hes> rant wasn't fact sinked up to some footage from up up and it's on youtube and it's fantastic from this show yeah yeah some of the conspiracy theory and the old man awesome fantastic where where we at big finale big finale rant of the year.

The pajamas preregister did not check us in in advance but here's the other other thing. There's no reason for your people to be rude. There's no reason for them to throw that attitude at us.

This momentous momentous occasion of monday. Wow stuttered times. It is monday. May third monday may third welcome to the show. Thanks so much for being here and taking your time. We know there's a lot of choices you guys have on monday night Some of you have children. But everybody i've ever met with children Relishes they can get away from their kids so What ever here in. The usa is the fifth of mayonnaise. Oh yeah and you know what. It's going to be two tomorrow. They're going to do. Oh my god and you. People in europe. Already know and stuff but in australia the fourth shit if i see may the fourth be with you tomorrow like the first person to do this and by the way like who knew who knew that like men grown men would be such basic bitches now. Look i don't want to get on around here. I didn't plan on doing this. But you know i'm not even talking about where beyond like all the dude into comic books and shit and by the way the number of adult men mark does this the number of adult who are posting about the new. What was the mortal kombat movie and stuff. It's like man. I dunno i dunno and i'm jealous. Don't get me wrong. i'm jealous of you. Fuck you know what i mean like fuck. I wish i could get my brain to chase that shiny object. I really do. I'm jealous and i'm not saying it makes me better or worse but when i sit down in of a marvel movie my brain wants to eat itself like the pacman ghosts. I'm not i'm not into i don't get it. I don't know why anyone would. I don't look. I'm not even saying i don't enjoy it as a film. I tried to watch the kong vs godzilla one of garbage. You know what i mean. So i don't want to adjust shit on everybody but i just i didn't know how many adult men and i notice that it's a lot of dudes with kids. So maybe it's something you share with your children. There's some look. I'm i'm what i'm trying to say. There's clearly something. I don't get you know i'm not narcissistic enough to to think that. Oh everybody who likes marvel movies as a fucking idiot like i'm clearly missing. Whatever button needs to get stimulated to be end to that. And i'm i'm jealous of it. I'll be honest with you. A hundred percent. Jelly of it. And i wish i could. I wish i could people saying the mortal kombat movie was good. I i can't even bring myself to turn it on. Because i can't imagine what that is you know i think part of it is my. I'm terrified of what even could be. I barely remember mortal combat as a kid. We'd have to wait for my friend's mom to go to work. Indepth the sneak the tape out from under her bed and touch our little dix. I remember like guys you and raden. I don't i don't know their names scorpion. And and finish him and all look. That's all i know. i know. Shoot when when i lived with choubey. He bought mortal kombat for the for the xbox one. I still have that. I think that was my xbox one. I bet you just left it in there. I think it's the disc is fused into the xbox one. Anybody would like to have a chance at pulling the sword out of that stone. But you know. I i don't i'm not gonna sit here and pretend like you i'm high and mighty and above these people but i don't get it. I haven't even seen all the star wars movies or reading the trat from well. I haven't even seen all the star wars movies. But i see about seven hundred dollars stormtrooper outfit just so i can fit in. You did not. I need to know for my own sanity that that's a joke because if it isn't we might just have to end the show now zombie than the chat. I've never even seen a marvel movie. I don't think look i'm not look it's just. It feels like in a world where where rehashing a movies all the fucking time. You know where. It's just back to the drawing board with the same old franchises over and over and over again. It's been you know they're getting real shallow in the well with what with Karate kids and shit like that twenty thirty years. They're remaking stop. I understand if you want to fire up another attempt citizen kane or birds you know. I understand that it's different time. There's a third bathroom at most targets. Now so i understand going remake movies from like a hundred years ago. You know everything needs a refreshing. But there's no reason. Yeah and harry potter guarantee you. There'll be like how long till disney buys here. i don't know who owns harry potter just. Jk fao chief herself but you know how long until they re that remake data. There'll be a new young hot piece of disney asks and they'll reboot at people love nostalgia. It makes them feel good. Yeah but at what cost you know. We all have to turn our heads now. Pretend anything a woman does as good. And i think like it's universal that people didn't like that new ghostbusters but like because it was women we all have to be. You know we ought to be on.

I don't have a running counter of time. That i've been broadcasting. What are we at. I didn't even record. This is that bad. Oh lord i'm out of stink amount. I think If you can notice by the way.

Okay but get the overdose before you buy. Merchandise save money on the march and then the over so pay for itself. Excuse me leslie. Jones is a great actress. Brothers harry potter great. Great great stuff. That's great i really. I'm a big fan of. Jk rowling and her stuff. Where was i. i'm outta sink. Okay so i need to explain myself a little bit. I think do you people are. Why haven't been doing shows now. Somebody's speculated in the chat room before the show started that. I've been sued by thai rivera. He wishes no. That's not true and by the way bring it. You know what. I mean like god damn what. I love a little bit of excitement in my life but speaking of that i went out and made it happen. I am now fully vaccinated. Everybody and that means. I will be strolling through casinos licking everything in sight. Thursday night went out to the mgm. Grand tried to get on an undercard at the ufc. No thursday night where the mgm grand. Dave landau was here. If you don't know dave landau he's like a fucking nut. He's a comic very funny. I never seen him. Do set and brandt tober was opening for him so i went and saw him and there was another comic from new york. Who is really really funny. Oh my god. Damn dave landau good. He was really good man better than i expected. You know what i mean like. That's a lot of comics but like just a great storyteller guy had somebody stand up in the middle of the show. He's kind of kind of you know conservative. And he had he was making fun of biden or something and just like called the guy a pussy and like him in front of his wife and he just got up and left so fucking funny he so weird like what are you doing. Like i don't understand if i ever mouthed off in a live performance space. When i was a kid my dad would have put me halfway through a wall and the entitlement on people. It's like laugher. Don't put shut the fuck up in like also like it speaks volumes to your mental capacity or lack thereof. Win like your in a room not enjoying something that everyone else clearly is enjoying. You know what i mean. Everyone around is laughing hysterically. He's getting big applause. Breaks and stuff. You know what i mean. This isn't like it's hard to read. He's the guy that left kunia for crowder. Yeah he's like louder with crowder. Steven crowder sidekick now which has got to be weird. Because i don't think there's no way dave lindell's christian you know and like steven crowder and his whole little cult runs. His show really nutty christian christian conservative types. I say nutty like you know. I've i've i find a lot of stuff. Pretty pragmatic level headed but when he starts talking about his father. You know christianity stuff and pine heaven. I'm just like a Yari yikes so. I don't know and then brandt to- bler. We had set this up like a week before. And i'm kinda schemed at brand brand elbows. What's coming to the podcast on friday. Kathleen i'm supposed to take her to get her second shot her second vaccine. She gets woozy when you stick metal inside of her so i'm driving her down there. What were their crutches. And all and i rearrange just whole day. I see him the night before is going podcast and stuff. It's like oh my god you know. And then he texts me the next morning like seven thirty. Am like i can't. I stayed out drinking all night because like seven thirty eight. He's like all right. I'll be up around two. I'll give you a urea taxed. And he just never taxman. I text him the next day. Like hey you know you leave sunday. Let's get this done. And then he's like posting. He's doing other. I guess this is like kuwait used to do this. All koolade used to flake on me all the time on this show and no offense to any of these guys. These guys won't miss an open. Mike At a dive bar in. Oh sixty minute drive away for like eighteen people total including comics and yet like they won't come to a podcast that thousands and thousands of thousands and thousands of people will do in their mind priority. Wise the live show trump's the podcast and it's like it's a we i think it all stems back to a weird narcissism unique they hear applause and laughter. For your witty shit. You know could. It's it's so fucking weird you know until like put that ahead of something you know what i mean. It doesn't make any fucking sense. People do it all the time. And it's like you know. I don't know i i don't like i like brand. I think he's funny. Stopwrecks like you know when people like people like it takes time out of people's day to put together a show and like wait for you. And and i think it's unprofessional and again. He wouldn't dream of getting drunk and sleeping through his set hosting brad garrett's that night he wouldn't dream of that for two hundred people but it's like thousands and thousands and thousands of people. You know what i mean like what what are you doing. So this is the same You know like the idiots in local comedy scenes. Who should on people like me. Who like go. I'd ever see that guy. At at mike's and stuff i never see him around the scene. It's like i don't work at subway. So i can leave town. You know what i mean like so before the pandemic hit i just i was constantly working and never fucking here and now that i'm pandemic trained Why the fuck would i. You know what i mean like. Why the fuck. Would i go to open mic. hoping they'll run into thai. Yeah gets him thais. That's what i call advice from time. Yeah so it's just weird it's weird man and it's no hard feelings are hurt feelings or whatever i know brand is an alcoholic and a gambler but again it feels unprofessional and shitty to like. Tell me that. There's a plan. Because i i do arrange my day. You know. now we're trying to do. The youtube shows were posting up. Like what time we're going live so people you know can get a reminder and see. That show is happening like we did today. So we'll work it out. I the shows always for the most part been. We do it whenever i want to do it. But i'd like to get into some sort of a schedule and even if it's not a regular schedule it's nice to like schedule. A show like have someone show up at that time to do it because at some point like i am not anybody gives a fuck. You know this isn't a career maker breaker. But it's like again in perspective you. I'm gonna i'm going to stop like trying to get you on the show and that's not a threat. It's just like i like you. You're a buddy you've been on the show for you know eight or ten years or whatever and you haven't been on on a long time you know and now i'm in vegas like come on the show just feels if you see brandt stab him. Okay just stab him. That's what i'm saying guys. Would you like to know where i've been. Would you like to know what's happened to me. I'll tell you right now. Strapping what happened. You know it's unclear when i can't read what happened because there's too many emotes on the screen by the time they clear can't read what occurred. This is sue is what's called a super chat. How does this work. how do i get money. Does this gala near this. Go into your ad sense for youtube when people like to donate money and stuff. 'cause i liked that man keep throwing coins money in dollars and stuff. 'cause i love that stuff but here's where i've been lazing gentleman. I mentioned on matt show that i wanted to talk. I wanted a golden doodle dog. Okay i think there's some of the cutest dogs and the world. why do you want golden doodle. Here's why you want golden doodle. They don't have they. Don't they're hypoallergenic. You know they can be um an-and shedding are low shedding type of dog. So i wanted to get one. You go looking for these. There's a six month eight ma. You can't like adopt one. Let me tell you something. I did find one to adopt his name was toby. He looks like he'd been run over with farm equipment. Scraggly and shitty dark and dusted. It was just like a weird gray color but like the color of like tire. That's been left in the weather in the rain for a long long time and it starts. That white crossed that old rubber gets. That was his name old. Rubber his name was toby. And you read through the thing and it's like first of all the adoption agencies righties bios for dogs in the in the first person so they're all like high and i imagine it's to really sad music and stuff. I don't think i can do justice. I don't really probably have anything that could give you the vibe that they try to strike. Let me see here. We see if anything cute up could even be close now not even close. They try to strike this vibe uptown. To make you feel like you have a relationship with a dog even even though it has a litany of problems it reminds me of a drug commercial. You ever see these commercials whether like. Ask your doctor about zoltan you're you know. And then and then while everybody's i it's an old trope while everybody's canoeing i know what you think. I think this is great comedy while everybody's canoeing and writing mountain bikes and stuff like lists. You know everything from rectal dope leading to sudden death. You know and you're just like oh like how bad do i wanna sleep. You know ask your doctor about new ness dire whatever. So that's what it reminds me of but this dog is like hi. My name's toby. I do best in an just immediately. Right into the problems. I do best. I'm not sure my age. That's always a good sign. I'm not sure my age age of some sarah mclaughlin shit. I'm not sure of my age because how many dogs that are in dogfighting rings really have paper records. I do well in a house with one adult and no children. I can't be around other dogs. A court ordered. You know all this stuff and you just get reading it and you realize that. Like most of his for is inferred flaps of scar skin. You know hanging off and this dog has like seen some shit ben through some stuff and you grow. Maybe i don't because i'm look i'm not against getting a an older dog a one year old a two year old a three year old dog i would. Actually it would make my heart feel good. I'm breaking the fourth wall bit here but it made my heart feel good to like rescue. A dog i've had fantasies about me. And my new dog for those of you have been listening to the show since two thousand five. I used to have a dog named chewier cocker spaniel. He died in a horrible horrible fire. Because i didn't have a crate. Used to just keep them in the oven. I didn't know there were buttons on the inside of the door and his little wet nose operated them like human touch. You know because of the wet and the electrical signal running his pulse capacitive touch so he literally baked himself. And so it's been ten years or so over that. Probably and i think i'm over it and i want to get a new dog but when i say dogs like topi rescue dogs just like nah. Nah nah i can't. I can't but again and people able in the love this dog already. I didn't get that dog. Are you out of your mind. What do you think. I just want three fingers in my sixty s no way no way but again you go to these. Breeders fluffy fluffy doodles. There's all these doodle breeders since one thousand nine hundred eighty three. They've got they've cultivated a look. They've got lineage. I dive into this stuff by the way hardcore. Learning about these f. one golden doodle have two golden doodle one b f to bb. What are you talking about patrick. These are generations either. How they're brad. I know everything about it to me said. Shut up still alive right now. I don't have. I gave up to when i was traveling. Too much to to take care of him But also you know he's not. There's no way he's a lot he was like to get that duck two thousand and one. It's two it's two thousand and twenty one. You think cocker spaniels. Living twenty years. I think about fourteen on a cocker. So no fucking way. That dog is dusted but either way best in show criticized better myself but listen he go on. Go on these these site. It's i can't believe what people do and by the way the waiting lists are public. You know they list their names on the on the website your third in line for this letter. They have You know in july. You gotta order your christmas. Doodles ed's ed's bananas what they're doing over there. I'm sorry i've got. I've got a little mess. Google my second shot Week and a half ago that strong.

You guys really get me down rabbit holes and i've gotta show you the dog that i got so i go deep down a rabbit hole on the internet and find this lady. She says she has doodles for sale. Real cheap. keep it hush hush me in the back. I think it's a scam. I message her. What's the deal. is this a scam. She's like do you wanna puppy or not. Stop with the questions. i'm like. Is there paperwork. You know i don't know the akc the american kennel club. You gotta have these. You got to register damon. Sire it gets real kentucky derby like in the dog reading world with all this pure pure bred stuff joined the. Od's patrick can feed his dog. Yeah that is true. That is true only eats fingers. So i go to this lady's house. She has a cage in her living room and live rabbit and these dogs. She said. I'm getting rid of him. Really cheap 'cause they're starting to go bad and she says you know they're they're old. They're getting old. They were eleven weeks. I think which. I don't think are fifteen weeks which is a little older when people wanna bring home a puppy. It's about eight weeks twelve weeks okay. So it's a doodle that fell off a truck. yes yes kind of kind of their all black. There's aid to choose from their all black six two girls. One of the girls is Cream cream colored. She's in the back cowering. I say. I definitely don't want a girl the that and then i go to high fiber and she just ignores me appropriate. She says all the boys are spoken for. I'm mike really already. Because i just caught a day and she said you know they were all available. But i didn't get off there until like eight pm. 'cause i couldn't find like a pet care or anything so i just had to double up some garbage bags and and my go through my couch. Get all like spare change. Stop because they're expensive docks you know even if even if i get it for For seventy bucks. That's a lot of scratch to put together so she's like you take the cream girl and i'm like i don't want a girl you know what i mean. They're they believed their dahmer. I'm she's going to have puppies and then my living room is going to be overrun like this. A thousand dollars offer each week over a yeah. She paid me to take to take her so i got her home. This dog hates me. This dog stands away from me. It's terrified me it likes kathleen kathleen didn't even wanna dog. You know she keeps like joking about putting barbecue sauce on it which is double burn me. You know 'cause you fucking rick and get free barbecue sauce. So that's fucked. You know it's like it's like a dog. Cocky mates and i got like a female dog in the house to females aside from sasha and malia and you know it's not a good time for this dog fucking terrified me i. I'm transitioning it. I already talked to a vet last week. About having a pianist put on it. Doing whatever we can to you know. Give it the old reverse. When i like to say i and i also her name was alley. I think and i've changed. I already changed her name to to brad. Because i think that's insulting. I feel like if you if you name your dog brad. You know everybody knows. Brad and everybody knows that guy ain't right. Brad is a piece of shit. Brad bars or tools and doesn't bring them back okay. Brad lives two houses over and and gets mad that he can't mooch off your wi fi in constantly. Want you to put it up. Put your out on your back porch. So he can have a better signal. Okay brad constantly constantly over your house talking to your wife when you're not home okay brad. And it's it's cut back to her because she's a female and i call her brad so take that you'll bitch too. She's brad and she's fry. She's a puppy. Or whatever i. I'm trying to feed her as little as possible I foreign experiment. I i did. Would you like to say this is what she looked like. When i got her okay when i brought her home. Sugar my backyard and i i. She hopped up on one of my pieces of patio furniture. And i snapped this photo because i wanted a before. I want people to see her for what she really was. Because when people see this and they go like oh it's a cute dog. No no this. This dog is a fucking nightmare. It's a monster at hates me k. And she's a clever girl. Brad doesn't see his kids on the weekend. You guys know brad right. Brad passed out and drove into a daycare. That bread just brad. Gooby comedian in vegas. Message me before the show ads to my name. My dog brad. Yup i'm gonna need you to change yours. Okay just do it. Just do it. Because i can't look and now brad is dead. Thank you for the joint. Nice green screened fake dog. Yeah believe me. She's close to dead now. This is the last known photo over asleep on my new love sex sofa. That's charcoal cord. Velvet don't worry about it whereas the death pool brad passes out on your patio furniture. Yep so that's brad. Piece of shit just a giant pisa shift so i caught one of her legs off and just put it in the air fryer to see how tender the meat would get when it got cooked. Brad still lives with his parents and doesn't pay rent. Yep these are all typical stereotypical brad and also like when you're at a dog park if i ever decide to take her there i can't imagine being nice to her treating her in any way and by the way i like to chew spry and jumping. I need a dog to table to dodge some of my kicks because there are a lot of them. And i'm gonna put her. I'm gonna put her out of her misery liga this shit too dumb. She doesn't play ball she can't figure out how to pick up a ball yet. You know just keep jamming things in her throat. Why eat well cut. Parts of are often eat them and also when she gets bigger i think in about six months she'll be producing feeder four cups of food a day. I think she'll be producing me for us to have weekly events down rex where we grill up Brad bites you come down. We carve you off a piece of brad you know. And that's what we do but you can. You can build your own brat. Pledge butter your own. Build your own breath. The black dogs are more tender. Jesus fucking christ we thanks. Yeah so By the way. Speaking of caitlin jenner. So that's brad. Keep up with brad here in wise and brad on the show you might be saying. I haven't decided if this is a bit yet or not. Now i liked the mystery of you. Not knowing whether i really got a dog and i did get a dog. I've been super busy with her. She's the greatest. I'm really gay Now you know. I'm a really weird gay type dog dad and that's just what it is so i'm gonna try to not be that you know i don't wanna be that. I do want to be tough with her from her. I don't eat are sneaking out in the middle of the night you know with bad neighborhood. Dogs being employment. But i will tell you that. She's terrified me. She won't come near me. She won't come out after another room. And if i'm standing up for them to imposing of a figure standing over her for her to really process in our brain. Like when i want to take her outside to go to the bathroom i have to like open the door the sliding glass door and then like get out of the way. Then she's dick or how unlike checks to make sure everything's cool and then finally comes up. Is she vaccinated for cove. I don't know probably we make out a lot. Is that true by the way. I'm getting scared of the of vaccine. You're reading this now. That like people who people who haven't had the vaccine are being exposed to people who have had the vaccine and they're getting weird shingles and shedding like peeling and skin issues. And they're saying like people with diabetes and like health issues which you know is my middle name. Have a lot of problems at this kind of stuff. Now i i. I've had a little bit of a throat. Tickle this week sniffles. But i don't think it was related to the shot because it kind of came on after the fatigue of the shot were off the has gina who tires and b.'s. You better watch out. Don't do you think i would ever let my dog near an unvaccinated dog like that or b.'s. You that's an old one. No and by the way you know don't even bring bijou up and my dog. Did you see that dog k. She's the cutest little bradley crane. So watch yourself when you talk about bees. You who is people who have dogs like bijou to aren't right in the head. Do you know what i mean. They're not right in the head. They're lose goud brain people. Bijou is a. Here's the thing when you touch a dog. You wanted to be like lovable and cuddly. Man's best friend if your dog has wiry terrier hair or your dog is is when you touch. Your dog feels like you've taken a fisherman's net and put it around thirteen pounds of meatballs and squeezed it. Like an old pair of your mom's hosiery and gone down to your local soup sandwich bar and had them put all the meatballs into your mom's stockings. And then when you touch your dog. It's just this amalgamation of mass that feels like just chunks of tumors. Here's the dogs that are like that. By the way. Pugs bulldogs french or english. I don't give a shit. They're all lumps of weird tumor like material. They're just like meat loaves with a bark box k. And not thing with toys and treats their faces they can't even breathe goddamn put them out of their misery with a fucking mop handle you. What i mean terry most terriers anything like toby. That wiry little talk. That i almost didn't adopt those are bad dogs. Don't get one of those when you hauge dog you want. You want to feel like it could be a titty. I just think you want a nice soft dog and don't get me wrong. You should be able to feel your dogs ribs. Don't overfeed it. You know god. I'll never let that dog leave through. I'll never let that dog live through what i grew up living through with people. Berating me and making fun of me and body shaming me. None not today haters. Get to the back. Yeah i just can't.

I have to pick it up to put it in its cage at night and even though it only has two legs in one of those broken it it scurries around you should see it do circles with that one leg on the tile which i think feels good to her because she's like wiping her eye and it's cold big scottish jay.

The world's eleventh largest economy or something or they always brag about that shit ninth largest economy in the world just california on its own arguably the bluest date in our union the most left state in our union the most socially woke liberal quote unquote woke state in our union accepting tolerant. The biggest failed experiment ever like. I drive through cities in california and just look a you know all the prisoners got let out during kovin so that was dope and now just ten cities lining the streets. You know so. That's dope urine and feces just businesses can't get homeless people off their fucking doorstep when they open it just just seems like a god damn shit show over there okay. Everyone fleeing because the taxes the highest you know all these social programs and taxes. It's not working right like we can agree on that like it didn't work and it just digging themselves. So the gavin newsom. The governor now get to petition a million signatures to be recalled. So now they're going to have a new election. Caitlyn jenner throws her hat in the ring. Let me just say this. I got nothing against caitlyn or previously. Bruce okay i actually had sympathy for bruce jenner. Back in the day on keeping up with the kardashians show the meet. The car was called this. This is an insane show where like entitled dumb brats run around and this guy who's actually done something in his life like look. You can make your arguments for for. Kim kardashian adds. He has a lot of legal work. Okay you can make your arguments for chris. Kris jenner like clearly you know. She's on something as a manager. Mom but it's weird to me. When bruce who for the whole duration mostly of that show was just the background dorky. Dad you know you felt bad for him. He always in the way trying to get a cup out of the cabinet. How's it a failed state of everyone. Wants to live there such high demand that they have insane house prices. Well look i mean. The populations high in the super desirable areas. There's a lot of california. That's not super populated. It's very large state and people want to live along the coastline but people are fleeing there. Because you're paying fifteen percent you know city and state income tax on top of you know if you're on the higher tax brackets when you're talking about elon in moscow joe rogan. When you're talking about ben shapiro and all these guys especially the conservative guys leaving there and other guys are pretty mill. The roads business people planning their exit. Like well when i retire. I'm out of here. It's like they just nickel and dime everything together. You like how is it. A failed state of everyone like not. Everyone wants to live there. It's super expensive. for housing. Cost of living is super expensive. Public works and services like the police are no longer policing roads and and services things like transfer department of transportation services Potholes bad roads litter garbage ten cities people protests blocking streets. No one's doing anything about it. You know breaking through breaking businesses burning. Shit you know like why would you. You'd be insane to stick around. We're not wanted. i mean. read the side right traffic. Why would you want traffic in a world where everyone's realizing i can do this from anywhere. Whatever their job is. You know this compound. This has a knock on effect it. When people leave especially richer wealthier people who tend to own businesses jobs. Go with them. It all collapses very quickly. Don't get me wrong. California yes very valuable but that's because of its proximity to the coast. And i think it will always be more valuable but i think we'll have a debt and i think it'll be precipitous. Yeah i i don't know it's just like they just take money and take money and take money and take money and everywhere you look there behind from education to public works to social services. It's all fucking lacking it's all is it why you left l. a. Because you are swimming in money. Sounds like a bunch of hyperbole fan by the media No i left l. A. to go live in new york city which was more expensive far more expensive cost of living wise anyway and even taxes are more but prices have rent. I mean you look at these places now. And i have friends in. La and new york. You see them list these places for renton for sale kinky rhythm. The can't get rid of him. I know for a fact that there are like trying to list for less than they have to pay like. They're subleasing for less losing money and they still can't lease it because no one wants to pay twelve hundred dollars to live in new york city. That's closed down. No one wants to pay eighteen hundred dollars for a room tiny room by the way you know in the middle of summer now stops opening backup but a lot of these. Small businesses are out of work. You now the government in these places in particular these blue blazes shutdown private business disney was closed for our fucking year. Meanwhile in florida they've been open for six or eight months. No outbreaks you know like when it comes to systems and procedures. Disney's got it pretty down. Yeah there's one ninety nine pizza slice. It used to be ninety nine cents. Got like two slices of pizza and a diet. Coke can for for two bucks. You know. But i don't know i don't know a lot of places are out of business. Now the government mandated in in those blue cities and counties and areas to shut down. They wouldn't let businesses open except what they deemed essential and those essential businesses like walmart. Costco amazon. You know what i mean is like the same by the way you know for the cares. Act the got all the money all these big corporations. It's like people are just don't like it's hard to see follow. The money is like what are they getting on a shutting down all the mom and pop places. And making you go you know and they're giving you crumbs unemployment and telling you to just shop at the big businesses is like meanwhile they tell you the big businesses are bad the big tech and all. It's like that's all the open. It doesn't make any fucking sense. And they got caitlin jenner running. Now i do like caitlyn jenner. She's she's what they call practical trans but again you gotta go. What makes this woman feel like. She can run for office now. Just popularity because i gotta tell ya. What is caitlin jenner. Do what is your. What is your talent and our business and our jobs now. Don't get me wrong. she's all over. She's just a spokesperson and an advocate for trans rights and stories. She's a figurehead for the trans movement. She's a celebrated member of the trans. I guess is that it. He like when when you know. They named her like times woman of the year. What was it a woman of the year for what magazine. I don't even know. Sports illustrated woman. Whatever fucking was that she didn't deserve is like a. She's been a woman for a minute. Be right before she became a woman. She killed a person with her car. His car bruce. Kill the person with his car and then became caitlyn and then became woman of the year. Like what and then. It's all just like speeches. And you know just appearances for gay and trans weird stuff. His talent is being white man. Yeah i just don't like there has to be that year. Just a gaggle of really intelligent accomplished driven ambitious women who are left on the sidelines. You're going what the fuck in every field medicine. Social work psychology computer science space exploration. You know. I don't know engineering every year. Just a fucking giant list of of ward um award worthy women and you know you don't even see you give it to kaitlin. There's been a woman for a minute. Why because she became a woman is like we live in such a weird. We're all don't wanna get into it. Because i don't care either way but you understand how we're this world is of where it's like. You could argue both sides of almost everything that somebody on the super super woke left with their own logic and make them so. It's like you go like well. You want caitlin jenner. Says she doesn't think people were born. Biologically male should be able to compete in specifically and especially especially high school sports with women and against women fewer biologically male when you were born assigned at birth. Whatever you wanna say then you shouldn't be able to compete against biological women. Because she knows that. As bruce probably there's not much i think if you run. The numbers like highschool males can outrun like a lot of highschool males can outrun olympic female runners because the biology is that different so like it. It's like it's like high school basketball players really good ones could dominate. Wnba players. so it's it's just fucking weird. You know what. I mean to like that because it feels like such a fucking backwards step for women right like the ultimate liberal conundrum can't vote for publican can't vote against a trans person. Right right was is Is is caitlin jenner republican. Because that's interesting. yeah. I guess she is right. It's an interesting one because on the one hand i. This woman has no right to being governor less than schwarzenegger. i mean. it's just like this woman was almost. I mean she what he he wa- bruce was done. We were done with burs. Janet we're never going to hear about bruce jenner. Again unless we're flipping through an old olympic almanac you know. Or what is this whole on so many semi something. What is this phoenix extended reveal. What is caitlin jenner. Caitlyn jenner was on the masked singer now. Phoenix was first. Eliminated was the first eliminated from the masked singer. Phoenix is a television personality. And former american sportsman originally gained fame for his achievements in athletics and motor sports. What a fun pronoun. What is that. She was the first eliminated from the masked singer. She is a television personality and former american sportsman who originally gained fame for his achievements in athletics. And motorsports.

You wanted to live your life as a woman okay. you'll look. I'm sorry it looks monstrous. You can't sing. I doubt you could say when. You are bruce moore billion but go back three syllables and put into my garage. I can't stop and moan and feeling like the this 2021 this was this year because look you are record breaking. You were the best look. Not many people will ever be the best at something you know and and look. These things always evolve. Just because you're the best now doesn't mean you'll always be the best okay of course of course but that doesn't mean that you have to like keep doing like this is one thing i really respected seinfeld for you know. He left out on top number one show on television. He walks away because it does sad. Sad thing to flame out. Do you know what. I mean when you feel like you don't wanna do it anymore. What is the drive here. What is the motivation. That makes and i'm not saying bruce become k. When i'm saying you're caitlyn jenner. You wanna live your truth. Fine you wanna stand in your whatever. Great great great great. Be you girl. Let's say but but bought why. Just take every gig that comes along now like you gotta go on dancing with the scars and stuff like what are you doing.

But i gotta tell you this gay people off to. I'm sure but the amount of time and energy we spend in both politics and pop culture talking about gay and trans shit is in sane aids in spain. What is the percentage of people who are trans. I'd like to actually know one percent two percent. Let's let's let's lump together gay lesbian trans as sexual bisexual. Queer hermaphrodite all of it. Let's all that into one subcategory and not to be offensive. Anybody i'm just saying like let's lump it into one. What percentage of the population ten k. Now that it's trendy fifteen. Patrick did you. Religious say yes. Okay so fifteen percent. Why is everything always about it. Like i don't know what's happening man. This is not to put this on and by the way.

We gotta watches all again from the beginning sandeep much my teeth cleaned for the next snow. Pedic here's on my toes. Does she say boys blowing up my phone and you tell me if i'm wrong. But she only dates women correct. She still likes women it is. She like trans women are. I'm like somebody'll know this. The jab around joe keeping up with whatever the fuck. This is yet. That's crazy boys. Well mayer brown round. Why do trans people sound like muppets. Deep-sea shows even gonna have a little bit there. See by the way. Do they do this on every do they. All sing over and talk over that. Just because he's awful. Kim jong really phoenix phoenix. It's like when did everybody get weird in their head. Where it's like well vice ev- i don't support what she's doing right now if i say she's not good on stage and doesn't deserve to be on this show then i'm trans hating i'm transphobic. It's like there are still idiots. Who are trant. There are still assholes who are trans. There's still retarded people who are trans okay in wheelchairs and breeding dogs it takes it takes all types to make the world go round. This is so it's such a far fall from grace. From being the best at something to this to a laughing stock. You know pseudo. Cameo appearance on filler level reality garbage. Tv you know. It's like i'm sorry. I'm sorry kim junquera doctor go back in practice medicine. He also does stand up. I think this would be on the list of using my skills. If i'm kim jong i wouldn't be bowing down all my god phoenix. Oh my god she's awful. Get her out. Bring up the old trans limo and shoved in the back. You know whatever. Her name is is crawling around. I can't even. I can't even watch her phone.

Don't sky walk panther party to start walk in off voted right your watches party that is in saying i had no idea so there's gotta be more performances of her right. Phoenix is unmasked. The bad one just like what is this. Like what is she's laughing at her. Yeah yeah that's a strange man. Let's talk about elon musk. Musk is doing saturday night. Live on musk is doing saturday. Night live i heard about this. I'll tell you right away. I heard about it. Alana's saturday night live. And i said all right. This could be interesting now. A couple of initial concerns number one. Elon musk isn't what you might call traditionally charismatic okay. He's not great at speaking eloquently Yvonne mozilla stumbles a lot. He's an engineer. He's pretty much a genius and the interface between the parts of the brain that make him a charismatic. In in a good public speaker. I would say a deft. Public speaker are missing. And i'm not gonna say he's not like a cool guy i think he pulls that off and he pulls off the cool vibe dates. He's got the hot checks and the wife or whatever i don't think he's married he's got You know he's whereas the leather jacket got the sports cards. the flame. throwers the jad. You know he's another cool. He's tony stark. But he's not as good as robert downey junior. What with the sarcasm thrown out the zingers you know. He's more of he's more and not by the way you know. Go on youtube and look up some Some great on maas moments. He does have. He is clever he can be funny he can have some zingers so i'm a little torn on it. You know it could be bad. It could be good. It all depends on like how they write for him and how they how they plan on the show. But i see this article. As alcott's members won't be forced to act alongside host elon. Musk if they don't want to report says saturday night. Live cats members. Don't have to act with the on mosques. they don't want to but no cast members have pulled out of the show yet a source told page six. The decision to have mosque on the show next week led to discontentment among some cast members. Now ilan we're talking about this earlier. He has a business in california. They shut down a factory. He wanted to get an open. Get back to work he. He's already said that he's pretty much john. Investing in california for for tesla and other business ventures. It's too hard to get anything done. Regulatory speaking and just just basically they've regulated themselves into fucking horrible horrible place to do business any wants to get out of there but what are we have. The only question is whether they'll beat steven seagal for worse coast ever They're gonna need jobs. I think they only come in huge. But you tell me so. I think it'll be fine. But you know i didn't first of all it seems like a non story when you just come out going. They don't have to perform them if they have a problem with it. But nobody's pulled out yet. I don't understand saturday night. Live cast members. Don't have to appear alongside tesla and spacex elon. Musk if it makes them feel uncomfortable. A source familiar with the matter told page six last week. Nbc announced tech billionaire will be making his hosting to on may eighth and decision that apparently led to some discontentment among some snl cast members last week. Speaking historically of a cads members been unhappy. They don't have to do it. The source said according to page six as an albatross lorne. Michaels won't ever make them do anything they don't want to do. But no cast members of pulled out of the show yet with a source adding whether you like him or not elon. Musk is an interesting character and he's very much show now. I got a problem with first of all. I was kind of sobriety here this now. Why don't wanna be with elon. Musk isn't a popular cool guy. Yeah i think most people like you on moscow especially on the left. I think some of the some of the far laughed rich people billionaires with a b. Don't like elon. Musk because he fucks with them. He's like a bad boy billionaire not playing by the rules of probably the first trillionaire what. He was a trainer for a minute. I believe him. Jeff pays us keep going back and forth on that But like he. He's he's been advocating. A lot of the shutdown was unnecessary. That this was all handled badly When it comes to corona virus and that healthy people shouldn't really worry about it and this was kind of all a super super aggressive overreach by governments to kind of knowledge. Shut down businesses but Exert some sort of control whether or not it was just psychological experiment or for the purpose of Of some sort of prolonged continuous re management of the population in our depending on how deep down the conspiracy hole. You wanna go. You ever follow sam tripoli this first of all i love sam on the chevron. I haven't seen that dude forever next time. He's in vegas. We get him back on the show. But because he's got so much more to say now and his podcast. Tin foil hat podcast. I don't know if he believes half this duffy post but some of it so fucking nuts. I love for him to come in and like explain it i i what. There's a lot of like weird weird shit that people believe is going on. But i think it's just part of the beauty of like the way the world is now like i don't think anybody has a fucking clue and also simultaneously. People have never been so sure they know everything. So you know in a world where we're like. I can pull out my phone and find out anything and click in a heartbeat. Kanye though can you so it surprises me a little bit. That that these cast members are bitching about moscow's tting when like khan. Yeh on saturday. How many times wearing a maga- hat you know. Everybody everybody kinda chiller with him. But what i don't. And i guess you know he's. He's officially diagnosed as mentally ill. So that makes it fine. But you gotta make up your mind. Because i would. I would imagine a lot of people on the left. Consider any kind of conservative or republican mentally ill. They also consider people who are not even conservative a to be right wing so there's all kinds of craziness going on with regards to that. What i found bazzani's that lower and michaels doesn't make acid cast members perform with the guests of the week. It's like that's odd to me. Now did you take away their paycheck. I if i'm if i get elon. Musk i'm more and michael's i decided elon. Musk is hosting the show this week. Six of my cast members from kate. Mckinnon's all the way down to peter davidson's decide they don't want to be in in sketches with him. I'm probably telling you to pack your shit and get the fuck outta here. Yeah these guys make tens of thousands of dollars a week for being players and writers on this program. It's a privilege it's a job. you know. Understand that like if you work at d'oeuvres weiner schnitzel not serve a guy with a maga- hat because you're against what he believes in. He's there for a hotdog. How about you reach into that hot dog water and serve him up one while you examine deeply in the back of your cranium where you went wrong you know the decisions. You made the lead you to the point where you have to do this now. You're a successful comic on. Snl and you and you're gonna just refuse to work with somebody because their politics differ. This is such a weird time. it's like never before. Have we ever just been like well. I'm on the blue teams. I won't even talk to or work with anyone on the red team. You're all mentally ill in either direction by the way it's like it's just called the other side let it go. It's not a good versus evil. But you've all been watching too much game of thorns. Get over it faulk. I won't even deal anyone who doesn't want to be the way i want it. Several members of the comedy show veiled criticisms on social media bowen yang who joined the show staff writer in two thousand. Eighteen posted a frowning emoji on his instagram story. Around the same time the lineup was announced it remains unclear whether yang story was related to the announcement however later he responded directly to moss tweet writing. What the aft. As even mean on his instagram story the communists no longer on his account. Who the fuck is bowen yang. Thing he is you know by the way tag him and send him this. You dip shit first of all shame. Gillis doesn't get snl because he makes an asian slang. I find it hard to believe that. That doesn't have something to do with yang. Bowen yang is garbage. Kick him off and british. This is his second year as a as a player as a featured player cast member. Don't he better not make the permanent cast. he's garbage. we get it. You're a gay asian. Gagen give one character on every sketch on every panel on every anything gay. Asian guy eats awful. How did you get this job. Talk about quotas. Jeez d you might as well be tech talk. Don't stop tell my claws come out. It's like would just like hoisting anyone nearby who fit the demographic opera going do like we have funny asians. They're actually funny asian people. You know what i mean. Who's the there's a black chick on was awful to not leslie jones. She's gone so shears. The mehta or whatever. I don't know there off just grabbed people and it's bad man. It's like you say whatever you want about keenan thompson. He's been there for thirty eight years or whatever he's good he's funny he has some characters he's adaptable. He's talented. he can do a lot of stuff on that. Show kate mckinnon to white woman. She's fantastic says leads on there. That's bayer she's gone. I don't know what happened to her. But we just like keep grabbing like garbage identity. Politic cut out people and i find it really hard to believe that you can't find a better asian person like i know some you know what i mean. Jesus christ he's one funny asian comics find a better one bowen yang. Get a fuck outta here man. And i'm sorry all these guys by the way they they they go like. We're not gonna work we're going to is get out get out. People are lining up waiting for an opportunity to do this. Show pack your bags dummies. You know what i mean. Was that around listening to kyle mooney wine about not. Not even kyle is one of them. I'm just bringing that up. I like him. Actually eggo modem. No i don't think she's good. I don't think he's good at all. She's okay like don't get me wrong. She's miles atta bowen yang. But no what's controversial about. Mosk aside and being a massive weirdo. He's in the business not politics. Yeah he's out smoking about about the vaccine and the virus stuff overreacting and all he did was science. You know what i mean. Say whatever you want. It's all the place you wonder why people all report today that the united states may never reach herd immunity. Why they fucked up so much. do you understand. They've fucked with the american people's mind so much people don't know what to believe. On either side we have comma harris along with a litany of other politicians who announced for half of a year that they wouldn't go anywhere near a vaccine that was developed under donald trump. You know and by the way but dirna pfizer astra zeneca johnson and johnson. All these viruses developed in cooperation with trump's initiative this warps sweet thing. And say whatever you want about they were all developed under trump. He put an to plan. The government acts to make it where they weren't liable for the medications that could be sued. Which made it financially feasible for them. Do this in such a quick way. Now it might suck this thing starts making some people sick but again all this was done under trump comma hairs all these people don't trust it. I would never trusted of the trump. Now they're all getting it in the messages. Go out and get the vaccine. It's safe sexy. Never the most effective vaccine ever. We've all been told you get it. What are you waiting for. Its like y'all said you'd move to canada if trump got elected. Then that didn't happen. All i'm noticing is that you guys are full of shit. You're full of shit about everything so of course everyone's confused. Don't wear masks wear masks where to mess. Get the vaccine at works. It's the most effective while after you get the vaccine. You still have to wear a mask like what's going on. You know what i mean like. Meanwhile some states are fully open having a great time. Like florida and california are fully lockdown and having outbreaks left and right shutting down portland again. I heard indoor dining. It's like i don't know what's happening but nothing seems be working and all you guys coming out with new rules and regulations every week and contradict each other because you made it political. I'd never trust the vaccine from trump. Well now biden's an office and the next day rolling out barton the vaccine out in his first one hundred days. It's like the fucking making those all year long. It's all horse shit. And i'm getting a little sick of it i'm getting. I don't know who to believe anymore. Like i just like. I got the vaccine and now i don't know if i'm going to turn into the fucking fly the people who voted for trump or not getting vaccines i mean. Some are data.

He's like oh you don't want the mid grade and it's like i said this nine times i'm clearly the cheapest fuck in the world you know. I'm a comedian k. Again a swim sponsor damn by an a new golden doodle. Get it together. God new stuff in the store head on over and check it out. Nobody likes dot com slash store. All this stuff available for purchase. Now remember it's a great way to support the show but the best way to support the show is the overdose. Save twenty percent right now with code. Unbothered take that twenty percent parlayed into buying merch. We'll save fifteen percent on that. The savings grow on gel. I walked in. Jesus chr- i. I don't know if i ever see that god book up in the morning fairly like pre dare they last one. We'll do one more before we get out of here. And i'm very concerned about this. At an announcement they got lots of stuff. Okay lots of things coming. They got new. I max these are the cuc dimac by the way people people i got messages from people. Like ha ha. You bought the new. And last july you bought the last intel and now they got the max are you. Are you an idiot Ha and it's like no that i'm just released is the l. Words addition okay. Do you remember those old colored clam shell max that they hadn't legally blonde. That's what that is. That's a kids. I mac that's going off to college that this is how we run credit cards from my beauty parlor. That's mac okay is like we'll have a table ready in a minute. It's a kiosk students. Computer best now day will come out with one this year. I think the twenty seven new twenty seven inch or new thirty. They're saying maybe a thirty two inch. Mac that'll be based on a new m two or m one x processor. I think that'll be dope of all. They're going to come out with a computer faster than the one i bought last year. Man who knew that was their business plan. okay However these you know and i wanna get i wanna get some of these airtags now tiled this and do thousand twelve apple has ripped it off now and tied it into their find my network for people who don't know these airtags there. These little little little pucks the size of quarters. You put them on stuff and you can track you a newer iphone or any mac tablet with with a you one trip pretty dead accuracy. You can find the direction you know gora. Thirteen feet this way. Find your backpack on your dog. Collar put one You know on anything you want to track and how it works. His these things reach out through the air up to eight hundred feet. I believe to any iphone ipad mac laptop or desktop with you on chip in it. This is an apple silicon chip and how this works. They can communicate with any mac whether or not it's on the same account so they're just talking to all the max which creates this mesh network. Okay and what that allows them to do. Is you can track your belongings anywhere on this mesh network as long as your items within you know. Depending on conditions five hundred one hundred feet of any apple device made in the past couple of years you'll be able to find his location unless somebody's smashes it with a hammer. Now i'm going to get one of these. Obviously brad's collar. I think it's great. If if she ever gets out. I'll be able to track her down and find her. You can make it beep. They have a a not an nf. T jesus fucking christ. Nfc Chip in them. So anybody with an iphone android phone can tap can hold their phone up to. It'll pop up with information This this whatever's lost called this number Email this person you know And then somebody in the chat says. Put one in your unsuspecting girlfriend's purse. The same personnel says doe. Pat gotta get me one head on over to. Nobody likes his score. Dot store dot com slash store. Now these just launched today during the show So had get one now Support the show These over here all summer long baby yet but is a good point. Put one in your unsuspecting girlfriend purse. Okay so now. We have yeah possibly spouses with the ability to track each other. Nothing about this. You've had fine my friends where you could knowingly share your location with friends. Family relatives like that. It works great for groups. You go you know you go somewhere. You're traveling together group of people you want to be able to find each other hook-up up later. It's great accountability. Hey you know make sure nobody gets lost great. This doesn't require permission. These are little pucks you know. Now you're gonna now you get a little double sided tape. Stick this under. Somebody's wheel well slip one of these in the somebody's upper shirt pocket on shirt jacket coat while they're not looking slipped one of these into a rarely used side pocket deep pocket back pocket of a backpack purse. You'll be able to track this person As they go now this presents a really a weird problem. Okay because they tout this from a owners perspective track keep track of things keys your backpack keep track of your family. They make all these stylish tags paying it. Find it you can make the tag ding colder warmer hotter little help from hundreds of millions of friends. Okay so chances are less is on a deserted island dope. You'll be able to track your shit. Now here's the problem so you just put a tag in lost mode. Let's say let's say you slip attack in the summer as backpack now on the one hand if somebody takes a backpack that's carrying tag in it. That doesn't belong to them. We could have one of two scenarios right number one. Somebody picked up a backpack. That doesn't belong to them. The tag in the backpack belong together. You picked up the wrong back or your thief in your stealing the backpack or use the tag that doesn't belong to that backpack tags don't pair with backpacks backpacks smart devices. I'm just saying this. You know i'm at tagged ione into your backpack maliciously follow you home. See where you live or no when you're going to be alone an alley okay. So these two scenarios we'd be carrying tag. That doesn't belong to you right you've stolen. Something are taking some the moments take or someone has put a tag on your person or belongings as you travel now when you think about the second one when you think about either of them. It's very easy to be annoyed. Okay let's say. I start walking away with the wrong backpack the wrong piece of luggage or something like that. Okay obviously because things started digging going bap you know how. How could he do that. Well in knows that it's no longer moving with the phone that is paired with okay or knows that it's no longer Within reach of the phone that it's paired with or any device it's paired with on that account but there's a lot of times where that might be normal right. Let's think of a subway car a bus any mass transit. You get a lot of people moving together with both their items and their their phone paired devices. Okay so what apple is doing. They're not telling people that they're carrying tag. That belongs to someone else until they get home until they get to the address that in their contacts as their home address so someone who puts a tag on you will be able to track you and follow you everywhere you go and it won't notify that person that they're carrying a tag until they get home when they get home it'll pop on their phone and say you're caring tag. That doesn't belong to you and you can make the tag beep and you can find out. The information of belongs to or whatever information they put in doesn't have to be the real information could be stocker phone number one two three four five six seven eight nine zero okay now. Why wouldn't you tell me earlier. Patrick if i'm headed home why wouldn't beat me when i get a thousand feet away and say somebody's tracking you. Somebody's tracking you well. It's hard to do that again. Let's say you're on a bus okay. Does it notify bus that they're moving along with it with air traffic. That doesn't belong to any phone on that bus. Everybody on the bus because another occasion in. Wait till you stop moving. Wait till you get home to a location. It knows where you're done moving and then it notifies you and the reason they do this they say it helps In in the instance of a thief why you don't want to notify a thief that you have a tracker on something they stole. This gives you more time to track where they're going with it okay. Once they're home. Now i know your address. Okay so if you want to pretend like you don't have my shit. I go to the police. Perhaps i know from personal experience most of the time. That doesn't do anything but it sounds bad man. It sounds like the privacy issue of this is now. I know it's complicated. And these are new so people don't really understand it but you know this is gonna happen. It's a countdown. I think until the first crime where some stocker weirdo boyfriend gets a girls address or new location or whatever from an air attack. Like this is going to happen. Oh fuck man. It's a weird world. I've been telling you guys forever talking to leak out. There's gonna be a big reckoning where everything leaks all the data's half a billion facebook accounts leaked two years ago and now got republicans leaked including mark zuckerberg protect zone information. Understand you gotta you gotta like a vet. I went to the vet. I had to give my social security number and all the shit. It's like it doesn't even like that. It's about the weakest link. You know what i mean if my vet gets hacked now my address and social and it's just like do you think your vet has enterprise world class security and data protection. Fuck out of here. You know what i mean and you don't realize just how much of that you do and give out. This is the same the vaccine card she like. I'm telling you you see somebody posted a vaccine card at this point especially their dommage shit. They're not smart. Just where we're at. You're not a smart person. They're signed up every vaccine center. Telling you don't do this. They can't get people to shop for the second appointments here in nevada. Sixty percent of the people make their first appointment. Don't come to the second appointment scared. This is how good of a job you've done in nevada doing their pop up tents doing pop up vaccine centers. Now as if the problem is like they're so dumb. They think the problem is like. Oh it's not convenient enough for people. I'm telling you gonna las vegas convention center it's halls and halls of convention center space empty soldiers and nurses damning around with nothing to do. I was in there getting my second shot. Three people waiting with me after the shot. They make you sit down fifteen thirty minutes three other people in a hall that holds ten thousand. They're they're lose and they think it's like oh we're gonna do pop up ones now at the Outlay that's not it. Anybody who wants to vaccine gotten this vaccine everyone else. You fucked up literally find the clip of all these aoc in kamla harris dumb ding bats with no business in public office. Sorry none but they're strong women of color. That's not a requirement for ruling running government in my book. You've all got really obsessed with clapping for the first whatever whatever that's not a good reason to vote for someone look. I'm all about it and happy when the first person of color trends whatever happens to whatever putting that person in there because of that is insane you know and by the way what happens you get tech tiger down stop. It's like it's fucking bananas. Some track car here in germany. We have to go through intervals. I don't know what any of this means. You don't wanna purple mac here in germany we have to go in intervals out to get your shots doesn't surprise me it's weird. You know if they would have just kept the infrastructure for dealing with large groups of people that they had back in the forties. God can you believe it. We did it. Everybody we've beat the virus and we've beaten racism come on. I think that'll do for today. I think that'll do for today. I don't trust any of it anywhere. did you see this one. This is great. So look while i like yulon he's is. I'm big fan of what he's done with tesla stock since i've owned it almost a year. Now he's got a monkey playing pong with its brain.

Muscular degradation conditions and people like and. Then you got bowen yang.

Chris Voss | Negotiating As If Your Life Depended On It | The Wolf's Den #105

"Hey roy j b here the real wolf wall street in the wolves them another awesome episode year. Now sometimes i spend ten or fifteen minutes giving my version of the world and somewhere was on my mind for the day. Because i feel like doing that. But today i have such a cool important guests so when i was as information so vital. I'm knocking to say anything other than the need to meet this man. Chris voss former fbi negotiate extraordinary. Written many books never split. The dip is one you might have heard of. We have an incredible conversation where we really dig into this idea of. What's the difference in sales in go. She aviation and where the overlap. How are they different. It's really powerful stuff. You want to miss a second of it. I a- quick worst moss sponsors to pay the bills. Then you will listen to chris voss and i go at it and it is worth the price admission all right so i wanna tell you guys about one of my favorite parts of every morning and that's when i have athletic greens right now athletic. Greens is offering a free one year. Supply of vitamin d and five. Free travel packs for the wolf den listeners. You'll basically never have the by vitamin d again simply visit athletic greens dot com slash bonus to get started with this limited time offer again simply visit athletic greens dot com slash bonus and get your free supply of vitamin d and five free travel packs all right so chris voss thanks for coming on. You are an expert in negotiation right. And i wanna get right to that and discover dig into some of the things about like you know how does the goes differ from sales and persuading or they wanted. The same was a different side of the same coin here. So let's start with the fact of like how would you say. Negotiation differs from a sale. That's one of the questions that we struggled. With all the time there there are so closely interlinked i think Potentially sales negotiator maybe sales a little more involved in creating the initial attraction which begins to become marketing. I don't know. But as as soon as you as soon as i want. Or i need or anybody sat in my view unit. So do i need cooperation to any collaboration. Somebody else to do something. And i see that as a negotiation. I'm not sure that i could draw clues. Thank line between the though what about you. I think the way. I look at it. Okay so when. I'm in a sale setting. I always say you have the first four seconds. That first impression is critical. Because it establishes that unconscious thing are you an expert in your field or you were novice shaw or so. Say those first. Four seconds are equally important in negotiation. Yeah we often refer. I usually referred to as i seven seconds for seven seconds what elements and then. How do you establish those elements one to know what the are in complete another one to be able to establish right right exactly so why is fine. Make fun of that. I said you know. I've been saying it's four seconds since nineteen eighty eight and then harvard did a study that it's seven seconds. It's like well. I guess. I was wrong but i beat them by twenty five years. I feel pretty good about it. You know because. I've been saying that always. I was one of why. I enjoyed reading your book. Because you not being an academic to start off with you regardless you know take out morality all the other external nuts your phenomenally successful period in a time period before this stuff was established. The academic rigor you get gut instinct. You know what is your gut instinct and so if your gut instinct was telling you twenty-five years ago it was four seconds two seconds exactly exactly my gut was and the reason was that was that in less in those first few seconds. Whatever they are they don't they. Don't get that right sense of you. They will try to take control of the conversation and so the next step. I would say so. We both agree whether it's negotiation or sale the first few seconds critical and the reason for that is so critical from a sales point of view. Is that it establishes you it. Experts within allows you to control the flow of the encounter because if perceive as a novice they will try to flow the control. The flow isn't the same in an in negotiation. Close what what control like you know. I like to say a secret to gaining the upper hand that is giving the other side the illusion of control in particular at some point in time. It's going to be a time issues. The other side's got a feel autonomous. So they're going to push back. So if i give you the illusion of control your autonomies never going to be threatened and therefore we could. I could guide you guiding what's controlling semantics is what we're talking about are what would you call it. What do i call. Exp- what would you explain what you mean. By the sort of like the illusion of control from a sales perspective it would be that salesperson things that control means. You're doing all the talking when in reality control in sales means you asked a really important question and they're talking and you're listening you're in control even though they're talking you're actually in control because they're answering the question that you asked so. Is that very similar to negotiation or different. Yeah i would talk about. I want to trigger specific process on your side. And i might wanna get very specific sequence of thoughts going on your site. You're talking about asking question. Retrigger thinking any of the side. I'm trying to trigger very specific types of thinking in the other side and is there a certain point in time and also one of the things that i teach in sales is that it's very important that it's not just her body language when you ask a question it's how you respond both only and body language as you listen so it's always highs yup sm- yup of the interaction while someone else's talking that lets them know you understand them. You feel their pain. It makes sense. You're in their same sphere of understanding. Is that part of what you think is important in negotiation thousand percent and that was one of the things where i read your book threat thought was really bring part of it is having never interacted with you before. I figured you master of tonality right which is important for sure and also but tonality when you're listening as well like i think people forget that it's it's really important. I think when you ask someone a question and the answer an as they're answering your Your yup god it like and that shows them that you understand them year on the same page so to speak. Yeah you're encouraging them. You're making them feel good about the interaction. you're making them feel regard and respect more right you let them talk them so and then the next spot is there a certain point in negotiating when you say okay. We've kind of gotten to the point where i know what i need to know. I've asked what i have to ask. You have to say. Well it's time for solutions so to speak of like. Here's the deal. Is there certainly crossover point. Yeah we'll see it. Gut instinct is the other side talked on us so that we've laid out a pretty good deal on the table between the two of us. Have we have we got the we got the elements here for great deal a great deal that you're gonna love deal you're gonna feel good about. Yeah and so. Then i'm gonna i'm gonna set it up before i'm ready to move forward. There's a pretty good chance again. We'll go back to this whole idea questions. If i think we're at the part where we should move forward. Start cutting us deal. Must say the effect of how do you wanna proceed. What's the next step. What's the next best. Step a question. Where i'm trying to true you're thinking let's go back now to just a pure negotiation i will. How did you get into this. Did you like did you. Is it an accidental pathway. Like you just sort of stumbled in one day said you know what i wanna be negotiator and young in the fbi. And how did that come about. Yeah i was definitely accidental. Plan b as a result. Something really bad like the best things in my life that happened to me cameras result of what externally seemed like a bad thing. So i was. Fbi swat tried out for the bureau's hostage rescue team which is a fbi equivalent of the navy. Seals are former seals. My knee realize and had had reconstructed yet again realized right now by the way going through that right now with my knee. I can't believe he just said that disastrous. i feel your pain. Yeah exactly so. But i like all right so i love crisis response because i like decisions. You don't crisis. People have to make decisions is dithering. Inaction drives me crazy so we had hostage negotiators. I didn't know what they did. It didn't sat at heart. You know i could do that. I could talk to terrorists. How hard could it be. And so i just i want to stay in crisis response and i made the shift rather difficult. One was initially rejected to be ausage negotiator but Found my way there anyway. I guess the the questions that i want to ask you because i feel like i'm a ten year old boy speaking to a police officer and i wanna know the secret and is the ones that are more appropriate to ask on this podcast. That will give people the malls. Dial but i have to ask you at least one of the questions that like any young boy would ask. What's the coolest thing that ever happened to you like. What's the craziest thing that ever happened to you as an fbi hostage notion. Tell me give me something like really a great amazing story for the hell of it. Just one all right so you know we. We set up outside of an apartment where some fugitives in and twenty seventh floor of a high-rise in harlem back when harlan was a tough place you know not all jet fried like it is now and we took the we took a circus and we we took swat. We took everybody and we were sure that these guys were not there. Now they were. They had involved in a shootout with automatic weapons just a couple of days before we figured the sounds of the circus coming up the stairs. They're going to be long gone. We spoke to that apartment. They didn't say a word for six straight hours. One way dialogue at at one point in time before we knew they were inside. Run swat guys said to me like if is inside out of come on. You're doing a great job and about six hours. In one of the snipers on nearby buildings says just saw curtain move. When we were shoe it was empty. Now we know these guys are inside bottom line. We talked all three of them out. They never said a word. It come out in utter silence. We talked all of 'em out six hours of non responsive one way dialogue. They all surrendered. That was a great feeling. How do you doubt that was that a strategy that you ran or is just sort of finding your way hit or miss. Now you gotta basic offense a basic game plan. One of them is repetition. The other is the hostage negotiators voice which is a late night. Fm dj voice. Is you got by to say. If you don't do this you could definitely have gone and be like carol was what was the name Carole king on ninety five point. Five w j in the at that great. Dj's voice ashore dj's worse it's a soothing voice. Basically you know sales times. We talked to him about what the clothes would look like for six hours. Was i said when you come back. You kinda come out with your hands. I gonna make sure that we can see us so that nothing bad happens to you. You gotta move out slowly. Nobody's gonna hurt you. You're to be with dignity and respect so painting this picture of a peaceful surrender. Would nobody gets hurt hours. And finally they're like well these guys on going away. I might as well come out and not get hurt. And they came right. He's wore them down. Basically repetition and sort of language patterns always hypnotic language patterns your interest on again and again and again and we use the total three negotiators and every time. 'cause we switched out talked for about an hour and handing off somebody else and i'd say you know Millions getting ready to come on. Now he's going to talk to you and we're not going away and then when i came back an hour later i said is chris again. It's like i said we're not leaving when not going away to you. Come out and we're just not going to go away and ultimately when it came out of kind of funny. I said i said to speak for the whole time. Why you know. Why didn't you say something. And they said well we wanted to get away. And i said well then why did you come out. And they said well. You kept saying you weren't gone away so we finally believed in decide. What is there a particular hollywood movie that you would say. Best captures what it is. An fbi hostage negotiator. Really does well you know. Let's say negotiators overall. I mean the negotiated with samuel. Jackson kevin spacey. That was the closest now yet. There's few fundamental flaws there but we used to actually use clips from that movie as teaching points so was it was as close as anything i've seen hollywood though. And what's the worst like typical. What's the worst characterization. Diehard has four. Yeah oh yeah. We need to more piano guys right. You know it. Bruce willis who i think is a wonderful actor. He was in some negotiators movie. That i couldn't. I remember that i couldn't. I couldn't watching more. Liked woman plea ack-ack i. It was so it was so hard work. God bless him. he's out he's out. There phenomenal actor and also great african meeting right. He didn't write the script so it's not his fault. Exactly that one was better. What eddie murphy and metro. I think will you know. He runs inside right away. You know to talk to the bad guys. Good way to get people killed. You wanna you wanna right away from that idea it another movie that the fbi just walk. He's like the great and he just walks right in his methodology. That's gonna get people killed right and unfortunately it has. I mean every every couple of years some some sheriff someplace some chief of police. Because i saw it on tv. They say i'm gonna. I'm gonna go ahead and talk to them myself at nico and it gets shot. And then the guy's family says well you know he saw it on tv like yeah. Well what's what would you say. I mean again. I'm intrigued by more of the fbi. Stop for the sake of great stories. But i also wanna get the business parallels to that in the world of business and sales but in terms of like let's start with. Fbi hostage negotiations. What's what are you. what are the i like. you know. Rules of thumb. Step one step two step three step four step five. Is it go like that. Yeah now we're going want to going to want to get. The conversation started as quickly as we can. Because as soon as the other side starts to hear my voice from that moment on i got influenced so i might as well start building. My influence right away i got. I got an opening line and after that it's completed there are certain things that i'm trying to do which is common down. Reassure them start painting a picture of coming out safely got it so basically would not leaving and the only way out you know come out. Come out slowly calmly. We're going to be showing you dignity respect. No one's gonna hurt you. Basically rights and easy peaceful sodium painting a picture of a way out. That doesn't have them or the people that end up dead and complicate whatever. They've already done wrong. Basically right exactly. Don't wanna complicate it. You know to retain dignity i mean. The reality is i mean reality really is you never know what a jury is gonna do it a try so no matter what you've done. You got a shot at mitigating it. You know when. I was okay. Nearly days wind concert famous radical attorney. I remember him. You know a essay nosair says sonate mark hani fodder jewish defensively. I remember the whole thing happened. Was i remember that. Yeah sure consular is no serious. Attorney gets nosair acquitted of shooting. Connie at the state trial the stairs shock gone in front of witness gets nosair. Quitters shooting of the murder. He gets convicted on being in possession of the gun that killed gianni but he doesn't get convicted of the murder. Convince them concert came up with the story that Nosair as a as an an arab with standing next to kalani when you got shot and everybody said get the arab and so no. Sarah shot his way out out of self defense because he was going to blame for the martin and concerts spun a good enough yarn. That that the reasonable doubt. Yeah sounds like jury nullification whether or anything else. How many with the fbi. On i four the aging coleman. Who is now fred of my love. The guy the guy who chased me and got me indicted the as what you as a white collar days man that white collar investigations. That's that's too complicated for me. I need somebody waste martyr than me. He was the most dog days actually a friend of mine. I have great respect for his dogged determined guy and you really interesting. Is that my perception of the fbi was so positive. Always dealing with them with them and they would never had anything to say. Like yeah. I deserve what i got and they were you. When they picked me up my house they were really respectful. They raid my house. They they like actually let me my kids with l. Hey wanna go inside and get yourself. Put your kids upstairs. Like i don't really left with a really positive cases. I would expect you what it's like. I'm gonna america. Kill them right. Do you think that that something has gone wrong with the fbi in the sense that like with these sort of things that happened like in the last five years or is it just sort of extreme examples of a couple of cases that were maybe not what we all know. And that's still the way it was and rank and file fbi. The fbi existed the street. Louis rank and file rank father as change agents. Wanna make cases agent to treat people with dignity and respect you know Friend of mine wrote a book called Threat matrix about the bureau under muller. And i turned him onto some of the right people to talk to greg not brad garrett Is named come back to me. But so i'm helping them. Because he he put together the case Behind nine eleven and the investigation of that. So i said to him afterwards right. So what's your opinion of fbi. You've had a good hard look at headquarters. And he says a. The fbi has always succeeded despite fbi headquarters so the rank and file fbi agents a solid people has not changed. Put bad guys in jail. I don't care who the bad guys are. Don't care don't of their politics hundred percent thousand my experience and i think it's really concentrated at the top and you think it's gotten more political the last ten years or it's always been that way and it's not it's not it's not political either. I mean it's it's a function of bure bureaucracy and nobody likes bureaucracy no matter what side of the aisle. You're on whether you're republican democrat whether you vegan you can alleged that the decisions that are bureaucracy overall bureaucracy. It's not political. I'm telling you on the axe to protect itself more than anything else. It's like it's about self-protection not so much protection for one party or another just taking in the bureaucracy right so it's self so self serving and self-reinforcing all these bureaucracies become an exaggeration themselves. What they ended up starting. They had a good purpose to start. But the bureaucracy self reinforces in protects ends up as an exaggeration in their own ethical messy. Aiding too much too extreme becomes no good that kind of what happened. You think and really the proof that it's really a political because who wasn't unhappy with james combing republicans and democrats they were. I mean that tells you. Somebody's apolitical when all signs are angry with them. Like the fact that he'd like with hillary clinton like a three weeks before announcing that was like you'd say he was working for trump. You would have thought the odd thing was right is a really was so odd. The whole thing we. Let's let's get to the good stuff. Yeah which is really i want. You is a master of negotiation to really give us a in the business world now like what is it. I know it again. I know. I built theory every sales the same but of course meaning that there are certain key elements that must lineup. And i'm sure the same is negotiations but everyone is different within that that sort of that matrix variables but the way you handle them is always basically saying my goals a salesperson corral and as much as possible and move it from one point to another open to close so i assume it's pretty similar from your perspective with negotiations. So what are your steps if you can lay them out like five started on some already but like you know you're sort of steps how you go about in the business world getting the best deal possible whatever you do. Yeah well established a great relationship. So that you're comfortable working with me. And i want to gather up as much information as possible because there's always a better deal to be had always. How do i find that deal. I gotta get you comfortable enough to deal with me so you start telling me stuff you scared to tell anybody else now the stuff to your high because it's going to have your scared it'll make you vulnerable if it'll make you vulnerable is also great opportunity there all right so i want to tell you guys about one of my favorite parts of every morning and bats athletic greens listening leather.

Give me an example. You said before you broker great point which is something that pisses me off it. So many people that teach sales on the gauche. That don't recognize what you said is that it's one thing to say it's the first four seconds. It's nothing to not do it. All you gotta be you gotta get it. How like right. So i'm a big believer in my book. I show you exactly from my perspective and sales how you go about doing that and i get really granular right and i know that you probably appreciate it because you do the same. So what are. Your strategies is in negotiations. How do you uncover in this in. This is totally great point. Because i say this these intangibles almost these things of value. They have massive to the other side. But maybe not so much value to you. That's a huge opportunity to negotiate right. How do you drag those things out of someone else. One of our favorite ones that they really use a lot. Is i get you corrected me. I'll say stuff wrong on purpose now. Most people won't do that because they think i gotta know everything. I can't be corrected. I can't be wrong being wrong as embarrassing most people would rather die than be embarrassed. Give me an example. That's a great idea. Games apple that i like what you do say something wrong on purpose. Give me an example. I'll say you know i. It seems like jim on your side of the table was really against this. If jim is in favor of it you're going to go like no no no genes good genes good. It's bob was against it. Gave me information. I'd never gotten out of you. Otherwise you shouldn't have told me ever you just rubab effectively. But i'm not going to hurt bob nine now. I got a great diagnosis. Where the problems and regret telling me that because you're correction from me corrections embarrassment for you it fierce cranes would it be also like you do with like price it sounds like maybe you guys is the bit above your budget like that's kind of what's bothering you. No use it for that or more for like. How far would you go with that sort of strategy as you got instinct tells you crisis in the issue issues value so somebody pushes. And and if if that's the case then change in a price is not gonna make it a better deal so i need to know what's going to make it a better deal so i'll say if you got a problem with price i'm going to say boy. It sounds like the value is not there for you. Again is a correcting motion. Reaction on your your part and you probably say like well you know. Now you bring it up. Xyz he's the problems are now. I got an fix this. And there's a real chance that the way you want it fixed is actually going to increase. My profit is enough of a chance. That i want to find out how you wanna tricks to i. We say that a biggest mistake that people make in negotiations. They don't take the time to find out the things that are really important to the other side. They almost use their own map of the world and assume they can play mind reading games like the the great prescott. They know what the other person wants. They know the things that matter to them. And then focusing in negotiating oppose the wrong elements of negotiation. You said it's very common agree one hundred percent. That may be one of the biggest problems you know anybody. That's their end. If they've been doing for six months they wanna show smart. They are which means they're not getting information from the other side right. So do you typically teach negotiation. Do you have a formal like sort of like the. Abc's of this stuff that you how many steps have you have. You broken down the steps discerning. Stephanie that we teach more skill based and adaptability skills got an you there is there is a basic progression. But the more you get focused on steps per se which. I know that you've run into this. People get real focussed on the steps and they stopped paying attention to the other side and accused sets given them. My issue is what i. I invented the system. I teach it was the people who weren't really legit. I was teaching at the kids. That really barely cleared the way at a high school. How did he really simple. Step one step two. But you're right in this in the sense that one of the things that i always make sure that i also reinforce is the fluidity that in other words that just you know yes in a perfect world. This happens and that happens. That happens not happy to the not. I'm not. I'm sorry but in reality in the real world what often happens is your moving around these steps in sort of these boundaries above and below that represent the wiggle room in the natural flow of an encounter. You catch. It's not just going to be. Abc the once in a while. You get a perfect sale like that or perfectly gauche when they are just right on board. But there's wiggle room so you so what you do. Is you really focus on the actual skills and strategies that would really apply to any aspect of the negotiation right. That's that part of what you like your cornerstone. What teach your general skills. That are always important than negotiating. Yeah get get the basics of the skills dong and as you repeat them over and over again. It's like ad-libbing music. Suddenly you can add live in the moment. And it's why michael wheeler who's a friend colleague teaches at harvard business. School actually has a jazz musician. Come in to his gauche classes to give people the idea of improv and add living in the moment you know how i explained in great. It's a great analogy. I explained i saying imagine. It's like a box a train of boxcars and the way they all connect together is is as you know what the front and the back you have the front and the back down pat those a lockstep you can latch on the front any back in the back to any front so it was right when i teach people like. You don't know everything happens. He can't be wrote as you said in the middle of all the entry point an exit point from each step. So what happens if you know. There's a lot of language patterns right and need to make sure i finally would sales people that aren't natural sales people as they don't have it memorized like a one sentence or to their conscious mind is so caught up in the words that they can't use their unconscious mind they get they get locked up so what i do is i get them to members. Just the last line of a certain pattern so when they start to end one chunk of us of a sale the unconscious mind takes over and they out. Now where am i going next. We're going next. where am i going. So as they're talking they're actually as a pro. You and i were naturals right. We're talking and you're already. You're talking the already. You know where you're going next year your minds working in two directions at once year right so we do. Is we try to teach people how to like almost no each piece but make sure you know the beginning and the end really well and then you can stop at you said improvising and creating beautiful music by moving the cars around wanting this way that way right you see kind of very similar idea and that sort of instruction you trying to get people enough comfort levels so that they're not afraid now they can think of the moments that have been overcome by fear. Exactly give you an example of a business to get the name but just like an industry that you've like entered in negotiation. You could make genera such a great example if you're can't say product that's where you really help them. You know how powerful it wasn't how you in there in a tough negotiation and really made a huge difference and you kind of lay that out. You could leave names out if you have to. You know. I mean. I'm sure there's so many but i wanna a good one good story now. One of my guys Coached an association. Owns trying to settle with an insurance company and they actually had two weeks left when the insurance company didn't have to pay him at all because they drug their feet salone on a on a payment and not only was it two weeks left but it was mid december. Which means all they had to do is run out the clock. And how often can you get anybody to do anything in december because it's the holidays and always working anyway so we coach on your approach and they settled. They had previously offered two thousand dollars and they settled on december. Twenty third for twenty five thousand dollars win. If they'd have waited another week. it wouldn't ahead to pay them a dime legitimate insurance claim. An church rep on the other side was a human being and human beings. Wanna do the right things given the upturn and how you what. What was the strategy that you used to expedite the settlement. Yeah well the strategy. It gets an anybody's decision making wear negative emotions. You know your motion wiring. your survival. mode is seventy five percent negative so down the negatives by simply articulating him. That's going to be the fastest way to shut them down. So we had this person say you don't probably looking like a money grubber. Who's been lazy. Who's delayed who's been unresponsive. Who doesn't care about the insurance company and probably doesn't even need the money suddenly conversation because what's the insurance person on the other side These people are money grubbers. They don't need the money that lazy been on responsive they don't care about me so you deactivate their negative perceptions you by simply stating them. Fearlessly people suddenly like. Wow now you're a conversation you know. what's amazing. Is that one of the core. Strategies of the straight line is literally directly that so what we have we call it. I call it. You know lowering someone's action threshold. Where i say that and i always say that fear based creatures i. It's funny to be saying the same things in different ways wired into our brain. The fear is i like that. It's the fear of loss to dallas. People always look at the downside. I one of the biggest mistakes that salespeople make and i noticed my own dad was he was the toughest person to sell to in the world and the reason was is that when he was faced with a buying decision. You know we always run to movies. We'll say yes. What's my best outcome. Or if i guess what's my worst. What's the downside. And most people will go heavily to the so. The point is if i say to my dad. Well what's the worst that can happen. If i don't tell him he will say he'll be dead. Destroyed it living in the street. Embarrassed vilify by his friends embarrassed in front of his like he'll create this crazy narrative in his own mind and go heavily. The negative is someone who doesn't like the buy stuff versus actually use say verbalizing. Here's what's scrapping. You lose a few dollars right. Cash your money back guarantee and you know you can fire bijou. Broker not going to be the end of the world right so it was like save your disarming them negative narrative by actually stating it saying. Bring it out once you've done. They're like yeah. Well that's true. They say but on the upside then you start actually running the upside benefits which these people never really do like someone like my father who hates the by up he runs a very long negative downside movie very short positive upside one. So what you do. Is you almost hijack their strategy by saying well listen. Here's the downside. Let me just tell you and you say right to say well. Yeah i guess so. Never do that essay but on the upside. Then you run. The long upside typically never do and as a dramatic impact on getting people to buy or guess in your case to settle. So it's really interesting to me that how similar the the processes are you can find these little parallels all the way through. Yeah exactly and a sequence that you outlined is critical. You gotta take care of the negative. I only you can unleash the positive positive ridiculously powerful if of the way. Yeah it's amazing so it's so funny as you said like i did this. An unschooled intuitive way. And you know and then many years as you've done and you've and you've studied there is like all these different supporting bodies of knowledge of how people really think and how the brain actually works and makes decisions have been studied. Nop it'll neuro linguistic programming. Yeah i never have gotten so much feedback at there are a lot of parallels and overlaps just never had ham. It's interesting there. Are and i think you would probably all. I doubt you learn anything new. Really what you would say is Yeah yup i agree with that grew with that. That's a bit. Nlp's is is can be really powerful the problem with nlp. It's used it's misused by people who don't really know how to use it like it's too easy to become certified in nlp. And i'm certified get into crackerjack box that's the but for those that really do that to use it it's powerful stuff that's it is all the same you know something. He's very powerful strategies. And then it gets down you know. How can you really apply them. How would you say in all. Your career has ever been a situation where you say. There's really no. It's a no win to go. There is no way to win this thing. It's just it's a lose lose is ever get to that point where you feel like his really nowhere to go like. Oh yeah -absolutely. Yeah i mean i you know. First of all basic negotiation stats ninety. Three percents close rate which means seven percent of the time. It ain't gonna work out. It's their best. This is not a guarantee of success. Sure are one of our challenges nest my former boss at hostage negotiation crisis negotiation unit developed a set of criteria called high risk indicators. How do we spot right off. How do we spot this right off. The bat is there. Is there a profile thirty. We're doing the same thing now. Business there some deals you and never gonna get recognize them sooner. It's not get the deal. It's suspended take a long time to get the deal. -solutely yeah let's let's make it shorter yemeni. And he trip wires the in a business setting. What just like very like things where you say. You'll reach that point. Diminishing returns really quickly. You gotta gimme any sort of quick tips for that. Yeah all right. So vision drives decision. Decision drives act if we're talking and you have no vision in your head whatsoever of how we're going to proceed. You're not going to this. Is your kicking tires. You're looking for me for a competing bid. I'm on a fool's errand because if you had any intention of proceeding you would have already started through. You'd have some vision in your head. Vision drives decision. Decision draft act. So i'm gonna try to get out you really early on where the night you got any vision of me involved in your future if you don't then amount of time it's going to take me to put that vision in your head. If at all is not worth my time. So i was very big points in other words. It's very quick gut check to to any before you really start to try to dig in the golden state would be like you know so. Tell me it'd be given. How do you see us working together in the future. How do you. Honestly i really. Don't listen if you wanna talk a little bit. i really haven't given any thought that sort of dismissive. I really don't tell them. Go ahead tell. Tell me why. I need you in my life. That sort of situation right. Yeah that that would be one real good way to start to tease that out. And i'm going to a couple of things to follow on to see if that indicators salad or not but if if you if it hasn't occurred to you at all right then the this is live in las vegas idea. What are the chances right i need. I wanna i wanna play at the table. Where my rate of return is high rate of return where you got no vision me in your future not high. It's a launch. And i think also like the idea is that someone. It's almost a function of marketing at that point we haven't gotten like they shouldn't even be in the point of negotiating a sale or even what the value of the product is haven't really dealt with it at a lower level. It's almost like the sales. That's a cold call to initial call because there is a by the way 'cause there's a process for getting someone interested and building a vision in someone's mind that's a separate process. I think the point is is if you arrive in negotiation and they haven't even gotten to that like whoa go back like. I don't think i'm not the right guy when i even step that. We've even talking about negotiation here. You even know. What does al bennett that you and you haven't even imagine how it would look for you in the future how you'd feel using that even to the point where it's really negotiation. That's really the point more than anything right. Yeah it's not going to be an or it may never be. I mean books out then. Everybody raised about the challenger sale. I'm they the idea of being a challenge is a good idea. They just don't tell you how to do it. But one of the things that is dead on in that book is they did a survey executives which is basically. How often do you engage in a company having no intention of doing business with their competing bid due diligence there to drive the price down on somebody else and executives admitted to twenty percent of the time now that that's not a low number because basically they're asking executives how long. How often do you lie to people about doing ten times right. Yeah sure you're not gonna exaggerate that you're going to underestimate it so to twenty percent of the time. There's no deal for you there now. Let's tease that out sooner. So we stop wasting our time. What do you think about all the people out there that teach things like sales and persuasion. The goshi shen. And so good. I when i saw you in the market as well that makes sense. The guy's obviously an expert riders prudential. Done stuff i read. Your stop was great right. What does ever this people who are like. Just complete charlatans out there teaching sales in the or you just me run into them. I assume right. They really have no business. They probably stole my book. They read my book your book and a couple other books and they're trying to make something up that stairs with all our stuff that ever in the way you think is dangerous kind of types out there you know. There's a type that you know. They're stealing other people's stuff they're repackaging the way of the wolf repackaging claiming that it's around but then the the other problem is people. A lot of people are good at. It can't explain it so they may have a great track record. They might not be able able to tell you in any way shape or form how they got there. So if you're going to learn you gotta tease through both of those things. Can they explain it. Were they ever any good at it. You gotta have both of those. How does someone if they want. What's the first step. Because i'm listening. I through your stuff. It's amazing and i use it my style degrade some of your stuff into my stuff. Because that's what i do in the united states as a lot of it overlaps but it just clarify my taking on those so. How does what's the first thing that wants to start really studying learning your stuff first. Step doing that. What's the first book. They should read first program or from ships. Free stuff you give it. What's the first day should start really getting your stuff integrate into their own business model. Let's start with the assumption that i've either read my book that i've read your book very next thing to do to integrated is start trying it out and low stakes conversations like if you want to learn a straight line method you are not going to drop it in for the first time when you got one hundred million dollars on the table you need to go drop it in when you're at starbucks or exactly lift drive somebody where you're not so scared of making a mistake so we you know we coach people. I mean we we got we say. Take these three steps call of your utility company. What's the worst that could happen. Bill is going to be exactly the same next month. And the what's it's going to happen is you're going to get you're gonna get some practice you're gonna be able to think about your tone of voice you're going to be able to think about where it went good where went bad. I mean star trying to stuff out in all of your low stakes conversations final works. Find out what you're struggling with. Then when you're in a big deal now you can try because you get a comfort level with. Where would they find like. where would they is it. Where would they actually find. Your stuff is delivered on your website. Is it on your. How do they want to start studying. Your stop is there a course that you sell on top of your book. Is there learning product that you have. Where would someone get that. And what's the best one to buy. I bought black swan. Ltd dot com website delay k. S wfan ltd dot com. I move is the sound for a newsletter because it's free as actionable stuff explore the website. We got a bunch of free stuff. We got a bunch of expensive stuff like me familiar with the free stuff. The expensive stuff is going to be a waste of your money. We got we got a ton of free stuff out there that you can make a big difference in your life right away and and just like you. I mean you you. I know you're trying to help. People get their feet under them. And then we'll teach you run after we've got you walk and really well. That's exactly what our approaches to. What's the most of the one paid proxy lab. What's the one you're most proud of that you think is the best one of all that you've developed you'd say fending wants to buy something for me. I recommend this is the one i recommend. They read the free stuff. They want to buy. Something i what's the best. What's your go to a product. We actually just started doing. Our skills are called the negotiation nine nine nine basic skills. We now have a short concise affordable fast clear dive on what those nine skills are. It's only a ninety minute training session.

That was by the way weeks very nice touch, by the way, because I didn't have a Valentine's Day date. So it made up for it. Anyway. So I get here and Steve meets me out in the parking lot. And he says, well, they're filming an episode right before this because apparently you families all over the place, and then you carry on. So I said, wait what filming? Okay. I didn't exactly where my NAS close. The good thing about that is though when you rock and roll star. It doesn't matter just kinda expect I for every episode of the week. I've been wearing this folds of honor pullover right here in so I just like I'm just been represented. So I've kind of had this idea. I'm just gonna wear this for everything that we do that way. There's no wardrobe rings out there in your eyes. I mean, this this little camouflage. It brings out the patriotism in my complexion right here. I love it sizzling smile. Those of honor. I don't know that we budgeted for the limo. So I don't know who picked you up. But I'm glad they got to the right spot. But yeah, I mean, I'll give you all the champagne and roses you need.

Jay Naidoo, use promo code watch. Chad and sign up for its greatest thing in the state of Texas. I got the redneck Riviera sitting over my shoulder. Rob's got of course, the studio twenty two over his, and that's where we are sitting over here at mercury one studios, and I'm happy to have you on hadn't seen in a while you in a you know, I've had some good times. I wanna talk about that. Yeah. Also had some interesting times. I know everytime. I'm around you. You get sick telling this story, but. Tell them the night you almost died. Okay. Literally, I want everybody in studio as well. As everybody listening to hear this story. Because this was this thing I went to a rob red wine show at Lola's in Fort Worth. And all of a sudden, rob Hutton on stage. You tell. Yeah. So yeah, we had a two band big night at at Lola's. I think it was a big can't remember? Had the full man going and all that stuff long story short as we were about five songs into the set. And I thought my microphone gone out when you're on stage. You know, you got monitors and everything else in the band's playing around and everything else. And so. I thought was my monitor went out here everybody else. But I couldn't hear myself talk anymore. Turned around my drummer, still drumming back Bahamas UK. I don't know. I I think I'm fine. Anyway. So it turns out that I my league tar player puts his guitar down. He walks over to me because I just apparently I was white as a ghost, and he checks. My pulse is still right on stage. Everybody's like what's going on here? And he goes, I think you need to go the hospital. Oh, okay. But I didn't actually say, okay. Yeah. Still allowed American here. Anything? Get off stage. And I'm trying to get out the out the door the place in my ex-girlfriend time with behind me Anders, you know, once people in there trying to talk to me, I can't talk for some reason. I don't know what's going on. But I can't the words are there. But they're not coming out. And for somebody like me, that's a very hard thing as as it is for you. So finally we will over to the hospital, and they pulled me back into a room within like two minutes. They're like, we think you had a stroke. It turns out I had something called TIAA stroke or something like that which affects either your speech, you're hearing something like that. So had a stroke, and then subsequent open heart surgery for a order stone asus and have mechanical heart valve and had times, which is then spent about what five six years ago four years. Yeah. Yeah. See 'cause it was like everybody's like g here what happened to rob. You know, they took rob often. 'cause I looked at the stage and all of a sudden your guys we're gonna fill in, and it was in rob gone as we came to rob shit. And there's no rob here. Right, right. He pulled a George Jones. He's gone, right? And so I'm like hails tour bus baby. Yeah. And then all of a sudden thirty days later, you're still in the hospital. You you say like, well, we had a heart stenosis and all the stuff mechanical heart and all that, but you were in a hospital along. Yeah. I mean, there were a lot month and a half a lot of prayers and cares going because it was it was a touch and go kind of thing, which is a scary deal. You know, I was in. I was in show. In Lubbock think was in Lubbock and came out on stage. And all of a sudden, I because I deal with the blood pressure issues. All of a sudden, I got real light headed to the point where I was like I thought of you because like I'm going to have to leave the stage right here in a second. I think I'm gonna have to leave the stage. And I was like, oh really don't wanna have to do that. Really don't have to do that. And I'm like, come on minutes, your health, and I was able to kinda muscle through it. Take some deep breaths and just deal with it. But I mean, you had some stuff going on. It's scary man's game. Oh for sure reminds you of your own mortality was. Yeah. No doubt. Yeah. No doubt. There were times in the hospital. I was thinking about that. And how weird that is especially at thirty nine at the time. So yeah. Yeah. It's it's sometimes I mean, you go through life, and you don't even think about those things. And all of a sudden, you know, it happens it is hard for men too. Because like, I don't know how you are. But I I'm one of those guys who I would just rather avoid going to the doctor if I could get away wanna go just keep checking checking all myself, but you get to a point where you're like. Okay. My age probably should do what needs to be done, right? At least preventative care on things it. But I mean, how do you know? I mean, how do, you know, did you did you have heart issues like your whole life, and you didn't know about it? Now, I was born with a Orquesta noses. I knew it was there. But I was running back when I was like ten years running a battery of tests. They would always have me on a treadmill and just checking things because there was some kind of weird murmur clique kind of thing in there. But my mom was taking all those things passed away not long after that. And it just kinda fell by the wayside. It wasn't going anymore. Forgot about it. And all that stuff. They told me back then. But I mean, I was a kid, you know, that you're going to have to have surgery on this thing at some point. I didn't know like that point. Hey, at least scars are sexy. Thank so scars are sexy. Thanks, so, but they certainly weren't at the time. They're pulling the tubes out. I'll tell you. I had last year. I had my first coming up on a year. I had my first surgery ever forty five years old at never had a surgery before. And they cut my guts out and did all that stuff and put me all back together. And then two months after that, they put my arm back together that a second surgery for, you know, being stupid, man. But it's no, you know, nowhere near what? But it reminds you of your own mortality, and you got one life and all that kind of stuff. And yeah. Kinda kind of like this whole living thing. Yeah, I do too. At least for a little while longer. Are you know? I mean, I don't I don't know what the options are. But right now, I kind of enjoy this part so in and I must love it.

I, you know, but it's just never been my drug of choice that you're partake in that. Or you you care about it at all is this life. Now doesn't have to be. To answer the question. Absolutely. I'm a musician. Of course, we have. We all have our main. I assume we all have of course, I believe I believe everybody has a drug of choice. I'm very honest about it. I I that's the only thing I can actually do with all the heart. So yeah, I believe I know I got people who swear by the health benefits of the CBD stuff. And all that. And I'm like make sense to me get I mean, it makes sense to me. I don't I don't care. I'm libertarian enough. I don't care. What people do just don't don't try to force it down my throat, but you know, hey to each their own. I you got your drug of choice, and then people I think everybody's got their drug choice. I'm holding mine right here. That's the beauty of it. And people can get mad about that. Jesus. Did it? I'm doing it too. So little jobs out front. We'll just go. Limoux all land up with you know, all the latest essential oils CBD. Light a candle light we need to light some candles. No wife does candle things where we turn the thing on. And it heats it up, and it melt whatever that is cincy, stinky to me, I can't do the cincy stuff, man. It's too like I. Like, my wife, she wants to do full breeze. You know, she'll she'll something the dog pisses in a house or whatever she'll come out into the for brazen. It's just a that's to me. That's enough breeze. Not her man. You can't walk. It's like fumigating the house. You can't walk in there. Oh, here we use the microphone Brandon got fired up. He had to speak out. What have we got thirteen year old? Bring it on what she uses the Lysol on the floor. That's what gets me for breeze. I can care less about. But the Lysol she's like he's trying to make another carpet like another coat. Trying to make a Notre yes, she's trying to make a coat of the floor like just like a couple of sprays. And you're good. Then she coats it with the for breeze. I'm like, okay, I'm dying. Now. I gotta breathe at some point. I can't stand. It it to me. I just can't stand it. So I don't understand that Lysol the ninety nine point nine nine percent of all germs gets. You know, is that is the point one one that's going to get this. That's the one that's the one that's gonna put you in the hospital while Lola's. Yeah. All right. Let's go back to rob. So never this nonsense. I wanted to get serious for minute. You remember that time we were in Vegas, and we had and I was just waiting for this story to come up, man. Just wait. Was so I was staying this couple of years ago. I was staying at the MGM grand at the signature suites, and you were going to be coming over. And you're staying there to thirty. Now is the golden nugget your golden you're downtown downtown downtown with the well. Yeah, I got a I'm not I'm not riding so high society. I'll stay there for free. Don't get me wrong. But that was the week. I had to be there. Like, I don't know twelve straight thirteen straight days. I was. Yeah. But. Vegas on a budget can be done you stay in places for like thirteen dollars a night. It's crazy. They get the money other ways. So anyway, as yeah, you're getting off the plane you came in and and I was walking across the crowded lobby there. And here you comb cross the crowded lobby. We just ran into each yet. I knew you were coming. We're going to get together that night, but in the middle of Vegas in the middle of a crowd. Here's the guy that I was gonna meet up with later on here. You come all this was when rodeo is going on. And it was just a sea of cowboy hats everywhere throughout this casino. Yeah. Just just random people in. So I said, hey, I'm going down to Brad GARRETT'S. Comedy club down there in the bottom part of MGM grand. And our buddy cowboy Bill Martin was going to be doing a show down there. I said let's get on there and hang their shows probably getting over with they kind of want after party tonight. Ed, so Brad who everybody knows from playing Robbie on everybody, Raymond, which is one of the biggest surprise is of all time because anybody that ever sees Brad GARRETT'S comedy? They realize he's not really Robbie. Right. He is one of the greatest insult comics in history. I mean, he is Don Rickles in Carnegie. He really is. I mean, he will call you out funny guys, we'd heart of a man anyway. So we said we're going to we're going to go down hang out. So we did he likes to go over to New York New York across the street in a tunnel over there. It's a we get over to the Irish pub over there and what a night. Yeah. Yeah. That was a crazy night that was one of those because we go over there. And he has this spread of food. Brad already had like every appetizer the place offered is. So here look like the twelve people at the at the last supper rarely did the Irish pub in New York New York, but we did we had a blast. We set over there. We drank. We spill drinks we more. We spill more drinks, we ate fried pickles and chicken fingers, we went out and gambled. All kinds of stuff. Is. In in Brad picked up the whole Bill, and he was like, you know, he was we were his guests. Yeah. And I was like, you know, that was one of those things remind I wanna be like that. You know, I'm gonna be gracious people take care of them and have fun. And you still go out there though for. Yes. Play in their thirty fourth time out there, actually. But before we get there, though, let me tell my version of that story on the this is the this is the way I tell that story. So I'm getting off the plane. My phone's blowing up from you get over here over here over here. I'm like, I gotta take a cab down the golden nugget and dropped my bag off and all that stuff. So I did got back to GM. He was like eight o'clock at night or something like that. I think somewhere around there. So you enjoyed come walking down the stairs of right there. In the middle of Sinoe think. That's what happened. Maybe I maybe I'm thinking of the Titanic and all that stuff grand. The grand staircase. But and you come right up to me in a sudden we see each other, right? So we turn and we're starting to walk a back toward this hallway. And I noticed that there's three very large of black individuals in suits that are your security. Okay, right now. We're good. You're like, yeah. I mean, we're good. So one of them swipes a badge to this door that goes down as hallway and we roll back into the green room, which is right beside Brad studio or or the or the three since it. Yeah. And so and what's his name the other comedian Bill Aucoin Gwynn various, dude hilarious, dude. He was in there. He was he had me rolling on the floor for a while. Quinn's also. Yeah. Great great guy. So anyway, there's another security guard at comes in and says, hey, Brad's over over at the New York, and we're gonna take you all over there and everything else. So we go we go down this tunnel. I think we went down that Thome. Maybe we'd just walked across the street. I can't remember. But I like to say we walked down. So this is where I am Beller Salat. Yes, not use sign entre. Entre total all the time. Well. Yeah. So we get over to get inside the casino and walk over to nine Irishmen. There's a there's a line of people that were out the door to get into nine harassment. I thought I think I think that's right. There was a lot. But we get to go through the red ropes and all that stuff. Now, here's another embellishment of mine right here that I like to say because now we've got four security guards around us, and they're all walking us through this. That is not much of an imbalance. Right. Pretty much the truth. But all the people in the crowd start going who are you man? Yeah. And I just turn around say, I'm rob, man. Carrie? This is my celebrity my true celebrity of the night right here. Sure enough. We did sit down at this long table. There was fourteen of us probably something like that. And that and Brad head not not shows the size of swag in in there on the on a table everything else. Then he takes us out. And y'all he gives us all of hundred bucks to gamble on crap table and everything I don't know if that happened or not it happened. We were drinking a lot that evening of adobe wasn't because Brad's win sober longtime. He decided to get sober and had been sober at that point dumper about nine months. Right it so, but we were we were imbibing. Well, you, and I we can't be around each other and not enjoy a beverage to. Yeah. In the weird thing about Rob's green room is so rob has. Bracket. Pelham, rob? I I keep thinking of Robin Robbie Brad has in his green room. Brad. Garret. He's got this big apothecary table cabinet with all the drawers in every drawer. You pull out has a different candy in it. And so like sweet tarts, it'd be a full drawer sweet tarts, you know, Shawn's always eating sweet tarts, the Gumy's in the in the rollo's in the whatever I mean, there's just every the drawers completely full of these candies all the Brown Eminem's. I mean, there's an everything us pull out drawer. And it's a surprise candy. It's in there. And then you know, he would have you'd expect the green room and have some liquor in their doesn't really have any in there. But I was looking around and really all we had was some gin, and I've never been a ginger inker. So, but I'm like, I'm gonna drink. So I pour myself a little bit of gin and that night, I became a fan of gin. And so I started drinking during the Jin. It's I know it was a bad deal. Party you ever drink gin. I've tried it. But try to big fan. That return right there party fell. It looks like he's a little puppet on sitting sitting on Mars. Ars over there and put your hand up there. Mark. Yeah, there it is see that's why you guys you have to keep telling everybody you can watch it on YouTube being watch it on Facebook. But you've got to still go to where you can get podcast look for the Chad break their show in hit. Subscribe. We wanna be we're currently number one hundred and fifty six in the world on the comedy category of podcast last year. We were we got us highest twenty four on all categories. And we we kinda hovered around one fifty five to one seventy five which still great out of all podcast in the world. That's great trying to get back there again because we took a little time off. But yeah, anyway, so I tell people to go subscribe. But that was a fun night. That was a great story because I you know, you kinda get a glimpse of celebrity in that one. Here's a guy who so gracious the way was and of course, you had the drunks who were trying to kind of bombarding the table. They had wrapped our table with velvet rope. So people couldn't get there or they weren't they knew. They weren't supposed to be the security watching our table. And so those guys would come in and kind of bombard, and he'd be like, yeah. Just let them come on. And take a picture let on KOMO and take a picture, and then it kinda got pushy as we were trying to get out of there. And but he'd still stop even in the street and take pictures with people and stuff like that. He's he's he's a professional and he's he's gracious, dude. Super nice guy super nice guy. I mean, you're right. That's that's the same way. I want to be you know. The experiences like that with somebody of such a high celebrity you want them to you don't want. I mean, you know, there's some people that you are going to meet that are just going to be a total jerk. Right. Yeah. But. For the most part everybody that I've ever come across has been, you know, gracious, and nice, and and Kutu, you know, any fans of theirs and everything else. Like that. Is there anybody do you have this philosophy? Like, I have this philosophy that some people that I really admire and respect that I'm afraid to meet him because I don't wanna be disappointed. That's exactly where I was going with that. Yeah. That's I have like I never wanted to meet Merle haggard. Right. Frayed that I'd be disappointed. Yeah. Yes. Ain't saved me. Like, James mcmurtry is a prime example. You know, one heck of a songwriter. You know, a legend for sure. I've just heard he's you know, he has his smarmy moments. Whatever else. So I didn't want to I didn't want to. Hand I have met people who have been that way that I'm still a fan of theirs. But I've just I like I could if I walked up to them. They would know who I was and they might shake my hand. But I still I don't want to be very close to them because I know how they are. Yeah. Yeah. You know what I mean? And that's that's one of those things where. It's hard because you appreciate somebody for their art. But you also know the interest is one of the things that Jade Nive learned is that there's a reason why people are the way they are to a certain extent. Then people get really eccentric. Like, I've heard so many Dwight yoakam stories who you have to admire as a artist both as she doesn't musician as well as an actor that like our buddy, Cody Johnson was doing a show he was opening for Dwight yoakam into white was supposed to be on stage like ten thirty. He was still sitting on a tarmac in private jet at nine thirty in like, California. And then when he got there the bus was waiting on him, and they were five had to be five. Pepperoni pizzas. Waiting on him from Domino's. And they were all for him. No one else could touch any of the five. There was no way he was eating all five just weird stuff way like hundred fifty pounds. I'm it's just like that you hear those stories, and I'm like this. You know, you don't know how much of that urban legend and how much of it's real. I've heard people tell me that Paul McCartney like we did a show at the Tobin center down in San Antonio couple of years ago. And they said, yeah, Paul McCartney came through and that was the instructions nobody can look him in the eye, and then I've been in other places and they say, Yep. Paul McCartney came through the most gracious guy met everybody. And so, you know, I choose to believe the good over the bad stuff. Like that. I went saw Jack white two years ago jerk. Really, I don't know. Start a room. It was in. It was at on the campus, and this was not the white stripes. But Jack, white and his band, right? And somebody had released his writer to the public, but it out on Facebook and everything else went viral everywhere and is not up to insane writer of all time. I mean for those that don't know writer is basically, what musicians require if they're higher level. Of course, also told you I wanted to limo. But. You know, the the old stories about green Emmons Brown Eminem's and things like that in the dressing room that they have to have and that kind of stuff. That's what that is. So anyway, somebody had leaked his writer out. And he got really really mad about it. And went on social media everywhere started talking about everything basically, it was just a a an exact recipe of guacamole, the main thing, and I think it was T-Bone steaks and champagne nothing crazy out of the ordinary whatever else, but the the guacamole recipe in particular was really specific. And so before his show a guy comes out from the curtains, and he has a bowl in his hand and some chips, and he's just eating in front of the microphone, and then this guy of start saying we've heard. Somebody was leaking are guacamole recipe to the public. And so we just wanted to come out here and say, thank you to everybody and everything else, it was it was a very star cast, it kind of funny moment and everything else. But it was it was it was interesting to see how he handled it. You know? So we have a tour rider. I'm we face. But right now, we have to right. I'm gonna tell you. How simple are to a writer is okay. These are the things I will list off the things that are on our to a writer and Steve party fouls. Steve will fill in the blanks. I wanted to keep my to a- writer as simple as possible just because of these stories out there. Yes. So I I asked for pretzels, I won't pretzels. I want jar peanut butter smooth peanut butter. I want a can of mixed nuts. All right. And then and then later on we added in a tray of sandwiches. So they can get them from anywhere. I don't care comes from WalMart. I don't care just trace just deli sandwiches. Then we add I asked for to clean towels to clean towels actual towels. Napkins of course, plates forks and glasses. Whatever I ask for a bottle of Jameson whiskey. We asked for ice we asked for nine volt batteries. We ask for sharpy markers. And what else is there Steve fruit tray a fruit tray MIO water additive meal. Water additive in here is the fruit fruit Muzy thing that I asked for that. That makes me feel weird sometimes, but it's what I drink. I asked for Pellegrino water like give me the little bottles of Pellegrino water because it helps me stay away from the diet coke, which is an addiction. I can add the Mia water additive to the belegrade. Oh in boom, there it is. So I mean, there's a little bit freakiness to that. Like, we don't really need the peanut butter other than I've got follow at home. Why the peanut butter? Here's why the peanut butter. So peanut butter is in case, you just need a burst of energy right now. You added you added rebel out of sugar for sugar free red bull. You added that on their occasional grab one? So we get rid of the peanut butter because if you need a burst of energy, you grab your spoonful of peanut butter, and you can eat it. Well, what has turned into Steve stockpiling peanut butter. I'm ready for the big one. He has. So I asked him I said, do you have any MIO at your house because I drink a ton of that water additive stuff 'cause 'cause drinking? You've heard me say drinking Pellegrino or sparkling water or clubs sodas like drink in the static of television said it just it's nasty. You gotta put a little flavor to it. So anyway, I was like St. the other day, I said stay will you bring me some meal from the house. He brought me a gallon ziplock bag full. Won't have to me over six months because he grabs it and takes it home with us. So anyway, you don't ask for a spray tan on your writer knows very tan. Tale room and do a little Korean also put on a little loincloth. And she tells John. Utah now again thirty okay, we'd done. We get our favourite whisky and vodka. Also, we started when Vince is on a tour with us, then we started adding vodka because Vince is vodka drinker. I drink whiskey in Arthur gets mad at me. He's like you want to keep the whiskey on tour rider because I really want you to stop drinking. And I'm like, look, man. I don't get stupid. I just liked him. But it makes the gout and your foot act up. These are the conversation, right? This is stuff. So. Yeah. I mean, we got a tour rider, but my agent he's like you need to beef up to writer you need to ask for more stuff. And I'm like. Let me help out with that one jerky. You know, let boozy Sean Hoppe. Oh, what do you want? So like, I'll tell tell you tell you a true story that I know is true Eddie Griffin comedian Eddie Griffin. He asks for a brand new pair of air Jordan's at every show. So if he's doing if he's doing three shows in the same city those three nights he gets a new pair Jordan's in a deal. That's a lot. You might have a bigger budget for his rider. I'm sure you've got a bigger budget for just about every say, I try to keep buyers within budget unless say budget. I know, but you always just say, hey, can we add this this and this and must on the venue, whatever we want. I've heard the horror stories row. Oh, yeah. We did a show in Oklahoma where they they had LA guns come in. And and the lead singer. He goes she had made she had made her homemade marinara sauce the venue. She's she she was going to give them pasta with their homemade marinara. Well, he came in. He said, I'm sorry. No, she'd made primary Chinmay prime rib, and he said, I really won't pasta with marinara. So she goes home in makes the marinara and brings it back. And after doing all of that she comes back, and he's like have decided to see what the band's eat, and I'm going with the prime rib. I mean, that's what you wanna strangle some bit, right? That's. I mean, I don't know. I mean, there's also a part of me that looks at it. And I know it's so foreign to persons ears e you're traveling. You're on a road, you're out. I always say you don't really get paid to do the show. You get paid to do all the traveling. Yeah. And so when you're out there, you have to do what you can give you some sense of normalcy for the things that you need to just adequately. Of home. It kind of is. I mean, there is there's a strategic person purpose for everything that's on our tour rider, but what kind of boozy stuff Shaw. What you wanna put on campus for? Laura drinks that Cam boot crap during sixty I'll drink it occasionally, Zing good. No, that's. Matter of fact, grows on you. I didn't know Cambodia was a thing until you came around shown for your gut. If you're good. Yeah. When we travel makes you feel when you're on the road. And what do you think I eat hot wings? I mean, we we should have that underwriter because we literally wings every place we go stir wings. Now. See now, y'all are gonna make me Fru Fru who wanted to. We don't have to do it though because we can still go get wings wherever I don't mind that. But if it's easy in there who have wings, Nick, sue fruit, tray, Willie my agent said we should be up the rider make us look bigger there. And I'm like but perception man, but you're all your perception is only to the venue owner. I mean, the the promoter put it in the league, somebody leaks. Just chat Prater camping about putting out a sex tape. I mean it made Kardashian what she is. So. Is anybody twelve second? Who's got rage as number? I know he's not getting any play. I wonder if J Lexa Cal. I've never seen that before you go. It'll be a revival of village people. Do you have a boat? You could relive Tommy and Pamela, Pamela, hepatitis C. That got a cure for that. Oh my gosh. Rob. You staying busy. Yes, sir. Look busy. You look. I mean, you you do a good job with the social media stuff. Do you think you do? Well, I think I think I do. Okay. Could certainly use somebody to start doing that for me. So I wouldn't have to deal with it. But that's still the life of the the working musician with no management anything else. Like that. It's it's a it's a lot of juggling all that stuff. But that's part of the job. And if you're if you're going to do the thing then you got to do that stuff when when was the last time, what was your last record? How long ago is it been says it came out daisy came out last year in August? Yeah. You are you are you consistently. Always thinking about the next record or next. You are. Well, I've I've literally got four records worth of songs right now the bull together. And that's why I asked because you're songwriter. Like, I don't that's a whole other mind for sure, you know, that's a whole other mind that is like is it like every time you have a conversation or every time you hear phrase or something like, hey, that's a song, hyper, hyper cognizant of conversations with people or. A cliche that I'll hear on TV or whatever else, and I don't like to be too cliche. But sometimes there's a cliche that makes us Aung. And actually, I should say a lot of times that cliche will make song, and you don't necessarily want to just make the entire song a bunch of cliches and everything else. But there's you know, just. Sometimes something just works for something. And you go with it. 'cause I'm songwriter that I like to write about everything I'm writing about gunfires and Bank robberies, and obviously jaded relationships a lot or finally right wrote a happy love song just recently finally one, and I wasn't even relationship. But that's the only way that happens every song out. There will tell you the hardest thing to write about is when you're actually happy in love. Yeah. Well, I mean, I'm about cats and dogs, and and everything that makes it more fun is to, you know, be able to diversify everything. And right about everything out there. Yeah. I is for me as the power story. And you're good storyteller. Like, you know, how to use Aung Tele good story in in. I always appreciate that. And we were talking. I was having a conversation recently with with somebody. We were just talking about the good songwriters that that. I think are good storytellers your name come up came up. And there were a few others that did in. I think that the Fort Worth Texas music scene has something to brag about something to be proud of. I almost think that in many ways out does dare I say Austin. While your thoughts. I totally agree. And. Fort Worth is slowly building its way to being that that town that Austin has been on the map for forever, and you've got other places like LA, it's he addle, and that there's some brilliant bands brilliant songwriters coming out of. And I mean, Cleveland Ohio or anywhere songwriter is they're everywhere. But but the the populace of good songwriters and musicians in Fort Worth is vast. And I'm amazed at so I stopped by yesterday Jade night, we J brand Brandon. We were going to go to a movie yesterday, and we were the movie tavern, and we stopped in at Fred's. Okay. So we I looked out on the the patio. See who's playing always got somebody out there playing patio, and I was looking at the calendar. And I was amazed at how many people are going to be playing there over the mu-. Month. And I honestly only recognised about five or six artists, and I was like always amazes me. How many artists there are in Fort Worth and your day, just everywhere. I mean, these folks that in in, you know, one of our favorite places historically in mind. Currently, I'm assuming it's yours to like magnolia magnolia motor lounge. You know, those guys over there have done a heck of a job of consistently rolling artists through there. They've got a very diverse calendar in the west seventh area, and there's so many of these low music venues at our honor, we mentioned Lola's earlier in these these different places built these stages done a phenomenal job and people take it for granted. Oh, yeah. It's a great music scene. I've pissed them all off with my politics. I still consider all these guys friends guys house. I piss them all off with my always liberal musicians around here that crazy. They get mad at make jokes about it. Unlike chill don't worry about it. That's why I'm on your shows as one that loves, you know, they they all. I love me. They just here's the thing. To know me is to love me, it, you know, I can make jokes about politics and all these different things or even state my convictions. I get mad at me. They they come back. They send me the messages, and they tell me, I don't care. I they know I love them if they don't then they should if they if they don't know. I love them. They they don't know me well enough, but I have a blast with all of them. Who was it a rebus over at magnolia motor lounge. He shoney's live. He loves me. They. They I had Jade came to pick me up at magnolia a couple of weeks ago, and I left my jacket on the barstool. And so Rivas posted a picture. He said don't tell Chad pray there, but a liberal where. That was great glazing. He goes, I I'm liberals ever worn his coat, and no I love all of it. I love the dialogue the discussion. And that's kind of been the modus operandi of everything I've ever tried to accomplish. It's humorous to me that people get so been out of shape. But really, you know, I've I don't care what anybody's political opinions. I just you know, I'm not gonna lose friendships over. Yeah. I love this story. I don't know. If you guys saw it happened couple of weeks ago patent Oswald, who's a comedian. And and you know, he was having that Twitter argument with a Trump supporter at any found out. You know, here's this veteran who was having this really hard time and help the guy out. I mean, come on. It's okay to disagree with each other disagreed with each other forever. Even the people whose claim to agree with each other disagree with each other. It's okay. But they do get tore up over it. Oh, yeah. They're really do. Like, like, all of a sudden, I can't stand that person. Why just because you don't agree with everything that they they I mean, they're not trying to murder, you know, it's not that kind of thing. What were you going to say shown, you got fired up there for a second? I saw Shawn's baby jump there in his womb. Got. Got. I don't know. I mean, I was like I don't know what I class myself as like, I don't wanna go around SAMA liberal conservative. I don't I just I just live my life. It's truth be told I'm the same way. You know that about me. I'm not I'm not a Republican. I've never registered with political. I'm not registered either. Never. I've always refused. I've had I've turned down. I've had places at wanted me to come and speak to their organization. They say one of our requirements is you have to be a registered Republican. And I said, well, then that's not the organization where I'm going to come speak because that's not the way. I am in truth. A more of consider myself. I guess libertarian cause. I don't care. What you do? I just don't want you trying to pass legislation that forces me to do something. You know, I'm not going to try to pass legislation that forces you to something. You take you take. What's the hot topic right now? The the pro-life thing I've never been one who says that that abortion should be illegal because it's I can't legislate what I consider morality. I can't do things like that. So so while I hope that you choose life. I can't make you not you know, I can't I can't do that. And so I've always said, I don't care what drugs you use. I don't care who you sleep with. Anybody knows me knows this because you can't legislate morality, and so many of our hotbed topics are just that we're trying to legislate some idea of morality or something that we value or don't value. I don't care what you do. Rob. I don't care. How many boyfriends you have to to two at any given time? Stick your lover, not a fighter that about. You, ma'am? I'm Harry to have a boyfriend, man. I don't know, man. It's like the old dice clay's skits. You're supposed to be all shaved and everything. He's like, I don't know. How Goggin look at a girl. And then look at a Harry guy walking down the break. Oh, yeah. I gotta have me some of that. I don't know those two don't compute in my head. So anyway, anyway, I, you know, I it's funny that you bring that up because just real quick. My mom was the chaperone from his Texas for fifteen well thirteen years, and this was during my adolescent years so at any given time I had to three miss. Actual miss Texas is living in my house in the room next to me and my adolescent years. So you knew what I was doing in my bedroom, of course. But at any given time there were constant hairdressers and wardrobe guys and makeup guys in the house all the time, and they are some of the funniest dudes I have ever met and to this day. I've got just tons and tons of gay friends. I love those dudes. One hundred percent hetero, but I don't mind going to crazy places in doing the thing. I can tell you story after story on the same. I'm the same way. I'm the same way. I, you know, I grew up with all the yeah. Same store. I can tell the same story different circumstances. But same story and to this day. I mean, we we're going to do an episode of we're going to do an episode of humor me with were. I have all these friends who are homosexuals. I wanna tell the home. What is it like being American and be a homosexual America in the things you deal with and you know, versus the way it was thought of what's on a time versus the way people approach it today in. Yeah. So I'm like, I just love everybody. I do our buddy. Oh Larrea with God. What's musician for the band, Dan around his head Hooper? Larry Hooper, Larry jumped my but on Twitter because that whenever he was and I love and respect. Larry. I he jumped my but on Twitter because I made a joke. I said I appreciate all the beta voters putting their signs out in my neighborhood. Because now, no we're all the idiots live. And of course, he was like, I wouldn't call you an idiot. Our to call you a friend. I'm like come on it. I make jokes for a living. You know that kind of thing. And so those guys wanted to turn it. Well, you know, Chad prayed their ages somebody that stirs the pot for a living and makes money out unlike start conversations, and yes, sometimes I do stirred up because for. Me. It's fun. I enjoy doing it and get it going. But it doesn't mean I love people any less. I still love you. I mean how wrong you are. But it's just a funny thing. I mean now it now everything everything is so micro aggressive. It's just can't joke with each other stuff and in bed. I just have a blast with it, man. And that's one of the things the power of music is a great thing. Because it does bring people together you don't go to a concert. And I think that's what gets people upset as they go to a concert, and then it gets political from the stage or whatever like if you know, that's what you're going into this one thing. But I think people go to those they wanna come in come together music is a great uniform. You know, because let's face it. No matter where we come from. When we tell that story, and you add music to it. It's it's one of those things where we realize we're all coming from in many ways, the same struggle and perspective of life. It's crazy deal. So angry. It's a weird deal. My brother is a. Somewhat famous celebrity shift. He won't top top. Chef. And he, and I have that conversation all the time about the artistic format of music, and creating music versus the same exact thing with food the same kind of thing brings people together puts people around the table together, and that kind of stuff and yeah. They're both beautiful things. Art in general. You know, same kind of thing. Have you written any great songs written a great song lately? Or do you have anything that you need to share with everybody plays guitar over there? I mean, you might as well. Oh, okay. I mean, we can adjust the microphone and everything you have a anything in particular. He no, I everything you do. I like so goodness gracious. All right. I dig it play a song. We'll get out of here, and I'm gonna tell everybody. One more time. Go to blaze, TV dot com slash Chad. Use promo code Chad sign up you can watch all the show handiwork. You get to watch everything that we do with me and party foul, Steve and Jade and even Brandon makes a cameo appearance. Every now and then. If he backs that microphone, and it's just a little bit can pick up. Back it up. It's a little bit. And it would get his vocal and the guitar. I would imagine. Yeah. Kind of guitars that it is a Martin double-o db the only made two hundred sixty of these got number two await actually I've had it for like eight years. No kidding. That's maybe no kidding. All the songs are written on this when they transfer over to other guitars and things like that. And that tell you about we were at John Rich's house, and he pulled down Merle haggard 's bus guitar, his songwriting risk guitar start listing off all the songs Merle haggard written on that guitar now John owns it. And it's who. I mean, you sit there and so so I- Johnson play me a song play me a song. And I'm holding that thing. So I did you know, they'll award. Oh my God. Oh, sing me back home. I sang it on his guitar that he wrote it on and oh cracks me up had chills. Friends with that. With that. Dude of all people. It's interesting cat, man. We just hung out on a bus one night. We were on his tour bus in. I was friends with cowboy Troy for a long time. About your friends which Cowboys my buddy. And so we were friends, and so I was at an event as veteran support vent, and they were playing at it. So wild up going out with an non apparel guys because they were going to go out and visit with a big Kenny because big KENNY'S doing a business deal with nine line. And I didn't even know John was on the bus. He was back in the back in ready, we hung out. And then the next thing. I know is like almost we forgot there was a show that needed to happen. So they went out there and did that and then we came back. And you know, I appreciate those guys are great businessmen. Not just artists, but they're good businessmen. So it's been an interesting connection. They've got one of the best line dancing songs of all time. Don't understand the concept of lime dance hate it. It it still is what it is. And they're still doing it yet. And when you got Steve Earle Copperhead road how that turned into a lion day. One of the greatest songwriters of all time. A legend Steve Earle and his song comprehed road becomes. Popular line dance. We were in Wichita falls this last week. And that's what they were doing. They they were doing all the line dances stuff. And I'm like, it was really a horrible thing. I mean, like, no self respecting man should be out there line dancing, and I'm like, bro. I know you're trying to pick up chicks. But it is the most anti thing. You can do. It's brutal. Party fail. I didn't do a single on. He would be. Since about not ninety one. Sean was doing an imitation the other day of them line dance. And I was cracking up man. Nice kick is a weird scene for me to see that much. I wanted to run away from those bars choreographed walking every now and then a high kick in a club. Yeah.

All right. We'll play whatever's on your heart. We were talking about Lubbock. Yeah. And so I was in Lubbock when at a show, and I was at the bar with the bar to get a beer real quick before the show.

And so as she was like just juggling Budweisers and and smoking cigarettes and everything else. All our buddies were call him, the woo girls. 'cause you're always in those places. You know? So anyway, she was cracking me up at like man, I got a party with this girl. And then I thought now I wanna go write a song about this girl. So went back in the green room and like fifteen minutes later this song came out. So this is a gift fifteen. This is meant to not be offensive to any ladies, by the way, the freshman.

That is so unsettling. I mean, it's not a major tragedy, but how greater sneezes it's a little bit shameful depending on how you handle it publicly. But internally a sneeze delivers man, if you let a sneeze go. How great is it just to be outside? Have you ever? Just full-on. Just didn't hold back a sneeze at all. And just what's not and spit and that spray just come right out of your head out into the world, just because you're outside. And there's no one around the free sneeze. The sneeze of freedom. That's it's one of the it's one of the little things. It's one of the great things. It's one of the joys. Obviously, if you're sick, and you're sleeping, and you can't stop it, whatever.

And the need to be funny. Something will be delivered to me.

Almost a year ago. I was driving from Atlanta back home to Tulsa on a week long cocaine bender full of wild debauchery that my mid thirties body was finding increasingly difficult to maintain. I had one plan in mind when I got home drink myself to death enough was enough at some point during the drive comedy central radio. Played a short clip from one of your stand up specials, the one where you recall nights tweaked out on coke thinking you were going to die juxtaposed against your current level of anxiety. Where you decide you're just going to ride it out. It made me laugh so hard in this weird sort of visceral comedic truth lime lit with the realization that the joke is only good because you're able to come out on the other side. Meanwhile, I'm right in the thick of it laughter. Turns to nervous chuckled turns to side despair. I didn't really know who you are aside from a vague memory of listening to you talk to Terry gross. But now you had buried yourself in my head, and I couldn't stop thinking about that joke when I got home I decided to grant myself, a stay of execution. So I could watch Merrin on. Netflix and see what you were all about. It was hilarious. But it also got me thinking about my life. And if there was a way out that didn't involve death. I mean, if someone is neurotic as you could stay sober for that long. Maybe I could do a to the fourth season was like a ghost of rumble mints future for me. I walked into a the next day red-eyed in hung over. But I was there, and I was alive I'll be celebrating a year sobriety. And March all thanks to a chance. Three minutes nap. Shot bid from a comedian. I hardly knew anything about. I just happened to hear it on the worst day of my life while flipping through an endless category, satellite radio stations, and it had a profound impact on me. I wouldn't be where I am today. If it weren't for your honest and fearless humor. Thanks for being real boomer lives. And when I read that it's like, you know, I feel I feel like I helped I feel better. I feel like I did service. I feel like I might have saved a guy's life for now. But not in a in a in a self aggrandizing way. That's the way that that we sober people do, and and you know, it makes me feel like I'm here for a reason and. Just wanted to wish him say congrats congrats to Jay stay with it, man. Stay with it.

There's this one spot on other street that I'm not on the street on the other side of the house. There's no street lighting. It's sorta dark right there for some reason just because it seems to be the one dark patch and this entire neighborhood. Strange people sort of sitting there cars over there doing God knows what I every neighborhood. I've lived in. I haven't been that far away from what are they doing over there? What why are they are? They just talking. Why why don't they just why did they park there? Always been pretty close to that. But other times, it's sort of. I know what they're fucking doing. Just don't get involved.

Brad is currently on the ABC series single parents which is on Wednesday nights at nine thirty eastern. He's also in an upcoming movie Gloria bell with Julianne Moore. And here he is talking to me right here in the garage. You have all the way in the west side yum way out like ballads, like north north unlike far for are you live on Bob Dylan's property. I do I do I. Doesn't he own most Malibu? That's what my understanding though. Those are the old days. I'll really those deal days. I heard he still owns most of it could happen to him. He's out there. Living the life that he's he's designed for him so kids life now, he's got plenty of kids. Okay. He's got. I think at least one wife if not to I think he's just decided that I think it's conscious that I'm going to die in a hotel room outside state fairgrounds where I would love that would you? That's my dream. The gets back to the circus. Well, I I think you're version of it would be a room in Vegas would be which everyone knows them going to die in Vegas somewhere. You have died in Vegas. Twenty say that, but I can't be that hack. Mark. You set me up. I took it. There you go. So Malibu, though, is that you grew up in. This you grew up here. I grew up in San Fernando Valley Manege of. Yeah. So now always like growing up always like that. That was his dream right over the tunnel and over the canyon and not the tunnel through it while he's been a little time in New York too. I guess exactly. New york. My dad was in the Bronx. Right. First time. I went to New York, and I never really dug to California into the vibe. No, if you're if you're sort of genetically east coast, and it's your parents are first generation one of them, you're going to it's going to Zorg into you because you have family back there. Right. So when you're a kid you'd go see the the Jewish. They all came out. They all came out here. I did family left the Pennsylvania, but everyone's pretty much gone my family's pretty much. But when you're kidding relatives New Yorker, well, it was no they were in Pennsylvania. And they would always they always wanted to come east where in Pennsylvania, pound Downingtown, Pennsylvania with that the Amish ninety minutes out of Philly. So the Jews they thought the Amish looked for million. They liked to hats in the free Derry. Yeah, they were they were there a lot but the horse carts. They seem to smack in the. What is with the knife? You got the knife in the incense. Now, you're running one extreme to the other. You got to you got embrace all sides yourself. And it's all right here. The broken hammer which implies not great with tools dice, which are large and silly. Because I'm not a gambler the knife. In case, you know, a guest wants to hurt me shirt. The crystal ball, these are all Chachis. So. The stuff they may all have. Meaning they've been on. They were on the original. I just accumulated a lot of stuff over the years doing the show and this is the new garage, and it's not as quartered as the old one. And it's not as put together because I still have to do some work in here. Sure. But the other one was kind of like massively cluttered by Ken probably must a little mold the other mold yet. Right. I real spiderweb e musty gosh. The old one was you've never gambled. Why I have other problems like what I've been sober for nineteen years. So I one oh, congratulations. The alcohol the pot. But again, I I'm just you know, I never understood the rush of it. Now, I understand that. Usually you didn't like when you got clean and replace it with something else. You didn't feel you to well right now, I'm back on nicotine lozenges, which I'm doing, you know, sex was important for while as to diminishing a bit not because like I'm just the I'm with somebody and as white disappoint to people. Well, but, you know, problem with the with the one layer, not really, no, I just I I'm onto myself in the way that like I'm with the person, you know, I don't need other people. But there was a period where I needed as many people as possible during your addiction when it was was more during the divorce, Brad. We'll keep being married makes you need other people. Yeah.

Was there really wasn't advice? We were we were kind of like. Yeah. It was it was thing that you know, I used to have huge guilt. If I never if I ever talked poorly about my family, and parents, so I never, you know, I always take it on other people in wheelchairs. Yes, cooter scooter SARS, they draw on a walk. Get lazy. Oh, I hope that as they were going. I did. Walk other people or are they on I walked two to four nights over and under from the staff. I know you don't overs, and then that's where we started with gambling. But now we're somewhere else, and he started to say that your stepfather may have kind of been in show bizz. How do you? Remember that shit bright now? Okay. He was a bandleader like a society bandleader he would do like mitzvahs and weddings and event band event. Beth not not Artie Shaw wanna be already shocked type of guy. Yeah. And he would but he was very very multifaceted. He did a Amana Lamont attribute where he would actually put on nights helmet and assorted shield pictures, but the operating well because it was an event like you say he could have a trio he could have a big band, but he wanted to really be an actor, you know. And when I got on, Raymond. Yeah. He was he really again, a kind man, no social SC. Gills he wouldn't handed out his car when he would come to the show. Sure he would hand out. The car is always a good thing. Love moving. He wouldn't even like block it for. Sure. Sure, you know, and he would get he gave a car to Peter Boyle because if you have a need pita wanted to hit them. Yeah. So if you ever need, a what a band leader. And so it was a little there was no boundaries. Right. There was the biggest problem with with growing up. There were. No there were no bound. That's what I that's what I relate to. And I think that's something we have in common and that in the addiction and the Jewish thing, but being with parents that are insanely needy and without boundaries was low through you all the time to where you can't put yourself together. You know, I it comedy is. You know, it's a way to own your space. You know, like this by space, I've control here, you're gonna fuck with me. I'm gonna fuck it back brilliant an out of thirty five years of therapy. Yeah. Exa- maybe more wins over put it like. Now, you're done. Did this? This is a little cathartic from this is strange. I do have to say, I may I may need to do a walk around. Just careful the guy with the side. But that's really that's really what it was, you know, became very controlling because my childhood was there was no control. Are you must be very controlling. I can tell things I don't think. I I don't think I am. I think that what like I still boundaries are still difficult because we want to be you know, you want the natural thing. I think when you don't have boundaries is like if you run into somebody like your father strong personality like now, I hang around that guy. Right. It is a naturally wandering through the world. Like a lost child. You looking for it. And in show business, you can sort of find that you know, there's big personalities everywhere. But the the standard thing when I look back on it for myself with sort of like I need to figure out who I am. And I need my own space just wanted to be in front of people. Yeah. That is very weird guarded trip. You know what? I mean a lot of therapy now. But I think about it a lot you've never done. I've done therapy short. But not enough. I could see I I think I've done enough. See you got knowing that you it's like, no, no kids and no wife. Yes. I have a lot of time to think about this a lot of time. But you must be. Credibly, not only rich, but happy how healthy are you lonely? I'm not Brad Garret rich. But I, you know, it's different. Are you are you? Are you lonely or I've I've I've girlfriend. I'm not lonely. Is she here? No, she's painting. She's a painter pitchers or like the wall. You're getting done outside Demeter. She looks like a roller. Right. Yeah. She's did. She do that painting when he to know. But she is an abstract painter. She's very love the one you have in the whole great. It's great pretty pretty pretty amazing. You can wrap your brain around it. I'm very much into art. I like more of an old Barbas on type of old European style. Oh, yeah. I like old Olga. You know, everything I couldn't relate to you know. Not that. I can't relate today could fat women. He have any the do. You have any LeRoy Neiman, prints only one of away. The roulette game. Because of my gambling.

This is eighty six Meeks Stolz, and LeRoy Neiman prints. Yeah. And I literally I said is at an original. And they said, no. But it's numbered. The I and I with numbered eighteen and nineteen gave way to Bubby. Did you? Yes. She didn't know what it was. I was buckled. You know, again a drinker. Your grandmother was I wonder I was all the now my dad, you know, had no addictions except for craziness. Yeah. There was but my mom was a pill person. But I remember my Bubby when I was young. She would put her finger in her Cutty Sark. Yeah. And rub it on my gun. Yeah. But I was like, you know, the common thing. Sure, I was ten and it was weird because she used to stick me again after being slip you something. Yeah. She would she would go here. Hit county, buddy. And give you ten dollars. Math math. Then ten dollars. We are really. It's got the Koga live amid put it would be a dollar and a stick juicy fruit. Ten doll- it'd be a dollar Bill and a sticker juicier. It's gum. Yeah. I remember the Bonzi got any bar mitzvah bar barmitzvah any bonds. I got barn. Yeah. I got I. Those bond either worth like I found them like like maybe ten years ago. And I'm like, they gotta be worth a lot. Now. Nothing they really Israel stop Israel bonds. Yeah. Who would you know? Yeah. Yeah. But that's amazing. That loan got a bit of a spending problem because I took all my bar mitzvah money, and I got my I read. Yeah. Funny. You say that painted the Pinto? First car was was a Pinto runabout which father's car seat little difference. My first cars Datsun b two ten. I'm telling you the three years makes a difference. That's that was a cool car. What adults be to really compared to Pinto run about reverse? Would you rather have now got the Pinto? You kidding? What are you talking about? Dotson was dead had no real personality, Pinto Ford, Pinto. They blew up. They were blew up. What color wider orange? Well, I went to the Datsun like I've kind of shitty Brown. Okay. Well if. But my friend said cool cars, but this is not the point the point is the band leader. So yet some show business in your life. And makes you gravitate. Did you try school without happen? Well, I really did. You know school was kind of my thing because they didn't have a lot of, you know, couldn't really find my niece show as kale be good school. And I busted my ass as strong be student. That's good. Yeah. And then I got into UCLA I left after six weeks. What happened? I just I couldn't hack it. And I was doing open mics, and I was just all over the board. That was doing open mic. You do voice-overs. Right. Do look how far you are from the Mike. Seriously, look at it. Mike, this would be per quality might. But it's not, you know, I'm sorry. Well, you know in a nice way, you could say. Suppose overstep I over stand like, I was really be close. Well, you can do you want to be that close? Gadd Lookie there. If I'm going to what is it visits me? If I got gotta be funny as that was as would no punchline love, it was fucker. How to use a Mike thirty five years later, which I love it. I why I love you to best deal with everybody. Okay. So you're in college, and you just start doing the open mics because what what I was doing stand up in in high school again where what caused me was a pilot that started in epic. Oh now, we'll lose altitude. Never joked. Yeah. Yeah. It was just a voice you gotta right. Yeah. But and then and then I went to UCLA, and I it was really my dream. No one had gone to college my whole family. Actually, my daughter is maybe the first if she hangs in there, which looks like she will. I'm choose eating really stayed long enough to. And I I wish I did. You know, again, I was very ADD. I'm sure I got shit. There's not a question. And I know, you know, you're just coming on that. Now, you're sure. I know sure before you got here. No, no, no. I know that I and you're right. And your candor means the world to me. I have done because coming from you. It's different than some Joe. You know, when you were a waiter that would hurt me. Now, it's a gift give is what you're calling it. A gift I have to write the way to look at it. One day. I'll be fixed. Yeah. No, no that. Yeah. No, you embrace it. And then you decide how you're an asshole. And you tried to do contrary action. You say like I'm about to be an asshole. And then you try to stop yourself. Are you able to most of the time? Yeah. With certain behavior. Yeah. But not with the Mike and the distance from the person who's talking. That's it is I'm sorry. Let me turn up that. The king. I don't even the K you what you bring it out of your bringing it out. All the reading don't find that in credit. Why I've read them. Okay. And then the books, and you have like five six copies of books, and you didn't even write him that book that I love that book, and I interviewed the author of that book, and I told them that I I can never hold onto the because ended up giving it to people about because. Oral oral history of punk music in New York. So it's like that whole punk scene. You know, from you know, from like Blondie CBGB's stuff, and that you love what it's great. I like some those see this is the thing you're like for whatever reason the three years somehow or another use Sinatra. I'm listening to you know, Johnny thunders. What are you gonna really? And, but that's it like, what's your favorite music. That's it. I'm listening to her net. Kalman everything got like two three thousand records in there. It's just a book that I like because you know, I that period is is it's all the people that were involved in oral histories written in conversations with all these different people. So you can kind of read it is that are they in there. They they were kind of in England, but this is more focused on the New York. But they're they're coming to New York is in there. Got it talking heads are in their blondes in there. So you're doing stand up in college. In high school, but you're actually doing open mic and at that time you had to go to the club right to go down. Ravelo factory the comedy nights. Yup. Really? This is pre left factory even. Yeah. I yeah. And I was you know, I was just I really wanted to stand up. And I it was we got into UCLA back in the day. When you could. I mean, I did not have that you know, I just worked really hard. And I wrote something that got me into like the feeder department, and I went this is going to be great. And it just didn't have I didn't have the goods. I don't think I was I don't think the college chops just to really got. And I'm like you're coming out of like an emotional warzone where you've been drained of your essence for your entire life. You're on boats. You gotta mother who can't get out of bed. Your father's calling you at three in the morning to tell you. He just sold the house, right? And you show the college he's supposed to be able to do deal with that. Hard on yourself. I don't make excuses. But rather rather yourself? People on scooters. I I'd rather take it out of them. Without you beat the shit out of yourself. You did for years. I do still I still it's like go. It's like a phantom limb now, but I know I don't need to do it limb to you g genius grail. Right. It's like do I need to do this. Why do I stink today? Well, actually, look around. It's okay. I don't know. Is it the way to do that? And how does the girlfriend understand all that? Well, yes, she she gets, you know, it's funny. You know, when you drive somewhere that you've driven before and you just drive there. But when someone's in the car, you go where am I going? So like, there's a problem when you're with somebody you're going to become a fucking child, and you know, at age fifty not attractive, you know, like your seven year old rage h fifties ugly. Right. But but again. But but I'm self aware enough to where we work through it. So they tend to get the best and the worst of it in. Okay. So she must be pretty pretty fucked up fucked up or maybe strong together and. Yeah. You really care for her. Yeah. Have defended or three time. Yeah. But because like the thing is is that you do eventually if you if you work on yourself enough, you'll attract one that will go like, you know, I don't have to take this shit. And you'll be like, oh, yeah. Yo, you don't you? Okay. So okay. So I'll behave better. That's where I'm at for the first time in my life hard. It is hard. It is hard. We've been together ten years. Oh boy. So it's almost over. It's close over the hopefully, a good good way for her to hear it. Just to go get some boxes and just just help me won't be home for six hours. You know, this'll be funny. I'll post in you'll be like I'm going to be packing stuff. He listens. Great interview. I did. Right. I like that like who's around when you start doing open mics any of the guys you started with still let me see or a head of follow Robin one night. Where at the store, I only did the store twice in my life. Too dark too weird house really fucking on. Yeah. It was on. But it was the Westwood I door. Oh for short is that when kenniston was managing it. Yep. Yep. Cast. It was chaos. You you're like, I'm home. Yeah. It was exactly right. And I followed Robin and they went. Yeah. This guy just is on ABC. You may have seen more can Mindy. And I've never seen that guy. Get a standing ovation in like eight in the middle of his that. It was unbelievable. And then I went on with a quay luta Matic idea. Yes. Really, really? I mean you walked into that energy vac walked into that vacuum. And there were only everyone left after here. And then as they're bringing you up. Yeah. And then there were five Levin, you're happy about it though at that point. Yeah. Let him go. Because why? And then the five that stayed. Yeah. It was just, but but the ice house was my thing. And like you say it's a weird lesson though. Isn't it to learn that moment where you like you? There's no way you can jump on the energy of the person before you, you know, like, you you might wear you're that guy, especially you know, and you sort of learned not the bus balls at the guy leaving the stage sometimes still do that. Right. But but it's a weird lessen that. Like, you're gonna have to take the hit the event, right? Sure. Sure to do what I do. And it's meets might be bad for a few minutes. I learnt that like three years ago only three years ago. I. Where did you start New York of is really, no, I graduated college. Oh, you went to college. Did you enjoyed it? Yeah. Just say they're five years. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I, you know. Yeah. It was. It was good. Yeah. I did a lot of things I wanted to do. But I came out here became a doormat. The comedy store got fucked up on cocaine inside a year left went to rehab. The first time went back to Boston and started in earnest. So I would say really in terms of warning how to do it. I started in Boston to rehab. You never fell off. No. I did. Okay. Took me till nineteen ninety nine when I finally got sober to really understand how to recover you know, what I mean. Do you still do the meetings and all that I do go? Yeah. You know, I get a little dry, and I you know, I tend to stay away. But you know, I try to get get over there. Once a week to sort of ground myself a bit. You. I don't I don't do the me a few times. I don't do the meetings, but you happy. I'm grateful and happy and. I started to go to and I know the meetings work, but after like three meetings, I was like fussing making me wanna use. Oh, yeah. I get that. But you know, for me like, that's the thing. That's right. You know, you're sorta grounded in prioritizing that thing, you know, what I mean out sorta like it when I hear the stories and Mike move me. Yep. Yes. They're amazing. See follow Robin in Westwood. Or was it? Another those Westwood and it was on the second last played early eighties. Yeah. It was a actually was seventy eight. Wow. And you're like what nineteen I was just nineteen actually. And then where do you land is a home club? When do you start to lock in? Why I'm working at Friday's work at TGI Fridays valley, and I start that a lot of buttons to fill that low. You wouldn't believe the buttons my favorite actual size that got a big laugh when I were that one and all the different hats. Let's go. Let's get I wanna get the Vegas because this this is my assumption about you shirt is that, you know, some our another like, I think we grew up enjoying the same things, you know, like the first time, I realized that I loved comedy was actually watching Jackie Vernon on television. Okay. And one was Rickles. Yeah. In rickles. But also like Merv Griffin show. So like, and I had a very much a love for that old guard the Dean Martin roasts it. I loved it in that. I got a little older, and I got into Carlin and Pryor teaching Chong Steve Martin, all my. Yeah. My stuff. My stuff said, right? But but I had this this real kind of love for the kind of old Jewish show business from worked with Jackie Vernon at an improv in Miami. Oh, yes started. And it was owned by some shady people share, and we didn't get paid. And we had a call bud because it was one of his, you know, the franchise joyously who really it's exactly what he said. And I you know, I gotta tell you how he needed to Jackie buddy came into mine who was selling fake watches fake Rolex fake it. He was a guy who was shady, but they were beautiful Eighty-four counterfeit watches Jackie about six of them for like ninety dollars. And I had I remember me Jackie sitting around very funny, but still doing shit with the slides. Yeah. Yeah. And it was great. But we literally didn't get paid. And and bud like it would. So when you're back on the road. He did. Oh, well, that's good. Right. So when you start there. Do it professionally you're working Fridays? But Wendy you start to sort of really start star. Search is kind of was my thing that got me going. Did you win? I did first year. What years at eighty four? Okay. One that. And then I started opening I got back in the day. That's when they use a lot of comics to to to open for a lot of musical interesting. Because that so because because the comedy boom was sorta starting, but like there was still that old because in the seventies before there were franchise comedy clubs all the guys that I talked to open for musical. Sure. But but but you didn't have to do that. You could've went the club row. Did you did both? Okay, did both. But I really got into you know, I opened for some big people in Vegas, and it just snowballed when did you how did, you know to go to Vegas in my mind. Like, I don't go there. Now. Yes. Yeah. I think that's it. I loved what it represented when I was a kid don't I don't feel that food. I do. Yes. Amazing. But I guess my question is you had a choice. So you're working and you break on star. Search could have been on the road with the rest of whoever like we're not clear on who you started with. Or who you see as your peers in terms of when you started. Who are they is? Kevin nealon. Okay. Who I love Larry Miller. Okay. Larry great, Dennis Miller. Right. Those guys. Those guys are other guys. Michael Winslow share, you know. But those guys it really did a hammered the clubs. Did you some party you found a home in Vegas as an entertaining agent at the time health, my agent was I was I was with a big agency has star search and they put me with a couple openers. And at that time in my life opening act happening gave yeah. Putting gigs. And I started out with Diana Ross Sinatra Sammy Dame in Vegas at the desert inn at the desert inn that Caesar's and in those days, I was a little different than a lot of the openers. And I did a lot of crowd work mo-, mostly because the main act I got it to crowd work because my main stuff wasn't great. And my crowd work just had a way of bringing them around because no one wants to see the opening act, and it makes it intimate. Room for the main act, right? And I would talk about the headliners and do jokes, and they like that. And they liked it. And it started to just really snowball. I would go to Vegas a lot with my father, my dad like, yeah. And I I saw early and I fell in love with it and the Vegas all of it all of it. Unfortunately, the bat. Yeah. You know, had a comedian that the club last week when I was there. They Mark Eddie. Okay. And he brought he flew in his uncle from LA is very close with who is ninety two. Wow. And he ran the Fremont downtown and really for worked for Meyer Lansky, and he had stories I love that area. And he's very very different. I just got lucky. I got in with the MGM people very very early. And they've been amazing natural club is to this day and Iraq GARRETT'S, right? Yep. Yep. And. I know it kind of sounds corny. But you know, I I am very grateful, and I've been very lucky, and I always wanted to build a club for comics. And I built this room. That's like a mini theater. It's only one show a night. And I put the comics in the rooms, I would free ancho three per three men show, and the crowds are great and local house. Sometimes bring in a host or get a local, you know, I go for it. I get the better acts. I put him in great rooms at the towers, and it's just it's been really great. And it's helped a lot of people in a lot of people gotten gigs from it. And then I bring in the old guys too. And then some of the new guys, but it just feels good because you know, lot of people helping and we're very kind to me and still are and. Knicks not comics much as I don't have a group. I never I was never. And I wish I was I was never part of the hang. I was kind of looked at a guy that came up pretty quick without paying many Jews though. I paid a lot of dues. But I came on the scene quick. Because what I'm trying to say is Vegas was really became my home club. Well, that's the thing is because I never met you. And I know everybody, I know real sort of like sure bearing on on your life. But because it seems to me that not everybody started with you. There was a grail in the grail. Was you know, a television show? It was it was it was Hollywood Centric. But the thing is is that you're of a different generation mentally in a way in that. Like, you know, why gotta work, and you know, if I can get twenty thirty weeks Vegas, then I'm in tolerated. So you're I wasn't on like. Where's the show built around me? You know, where you know? How do I more Carson's? This was my club. I'm working. I'm working. I'm you know, I'm working in. But I could see how that generation comics would be like, well that guy just does Vegas. We're here trying to sass in and it seems likely right? And then I went out and did to the clubs to where I took a few hits and had to learn that that tactic. Yeah. You know? But like, Indianapolis the comedy connection that was huge room for what was the jacomb, Patty, Patty. Yeah. I did huge stuff their character. He was amazing. He's still alive and hitting eighty I cut my teeth there, you know, India, Geno, Bob, and Tom who were the radio, I know, Bob, and Tom it's just Bob. Now, he just Bob now. I went on for some reason I did well on morning radio. And I think it's because I was so hung over back in those days from the night before not proud of it. But it it got me there, whatever, Bob. Tom type morning show when you're with a tight crew like on a morning show. It's great. It's like exciting yet funny. And they had the the the one produced of the did the weird voices booth and the guy you got chick over there. That's right. You know, and that your memory. I mean, your memory is pretty uncanny because sure that was a while ago. But no, I mean, I did like I you know, I would go up to Indian. There was a time. Like, I didn't start really drawing people like till the why was well into the podcast. I was a guy had to do that shit. Sure. But now, I can draw pretty good. I don't I would go to Indy fairly Vegas. We fake. Maybe you would do you know, I know you won't do for week. And and you know, I probably can't afford you. But if you're working shit out be we'll put you up to your Lenka king. Yeah. I could tell you you need help. I know just looking at my close to the Mike. You could hear the difference. Sorry. Right. My girth makes me it'd be too close. But the thing is like my we version of Agassi's like I will gamble, but I don't let myself lose eight hundred more than eight hundred bucks tool kinda you know, because I feel shitty. There's no good part of it for me. Yeah. I don't. And I'm not lucky. I'm not, you know, I just know that about me not. I'm not unlucky. Should I've never had that nightmare. Mike holy shit. I'm hitting everything. I haven't either never well a couple. Yeah. But in thirty thirty two years in that town, I can't tell you what I've lost. And you know, I got a little grip on the chip. We'll have you ever had to run of money to. No, okay. No. Who runs? Negotiate. They were. Listen, I'll set you up at the club. I wish I had that back. It was like you get to come to this restaurant gonna come to Guli. Yeah. And it's my mom's sixtieth birthday, and you're going do you're gonna do thing. And I was there. And I was there and still very close with that guy today. You have no choice. I had no choice as you're gonna go. It's my mom's sixty I went done, and then I was doing. Yeah. Doing Carroll O'Connor. And I was doing, you know, Jim from taxi, Grayson all the shit never did Gleason in the act that was you know, with all due respect that was not an impression Mark that was was a, you know, a reincarnation you you played him Ray called it. Jackie the NBA years. See? That's how. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. But yeah. But I did I did that little movie. But were you a fan? I was I was. New cremating, right? Do you ever meet him? I didn't his family was very against anybody doing that. And then after it came out, the daughters ended up visiting me, and it was really really kinda cool with gigli. It wasn't a jacuzzi. I did have Jili give me a sit down one. Oh, yeah. You know? It was it's a story told the lot, but you know, Healy Jili Sinatra's guy, and it's a story told a lot. I probably shouldn't not what do you mean? I, but I was I was having a very rough night. Opening for rank for old was he at the time you were opening for a hundred. Yeah. No, he was he was up there. He he was up there. He was, you know, seventy eight seventy seven seventy eight seventy nine and it was a rough. And then there were some nights. He was in the pocket, and I love that music and with with thirty four piece orchestra sit in the wings. Yeah. Like an old Jew fell. Just go. I can't loved it. But there was one that I was just dying miserably were you in front of your friends? Did you have a relationship? We would go to dinner. Here's the thing. You know, he he called me, Greg. Okay. And he and when he would introduce me for. How he would say Greg Barrett everybody Greg Barrett, and I would take a bow to someone else's name. Yeah. And I went to Jillian day, and I went. As after year being on the road that might go. You know, I can't I just can't tell you. I really haven't a great time. But is there any way you can tell Frank? Yeah. That my name is Brad. Hey, just looked at me with that one wonky. I and it was like, why don't you tell them, and I went, well, I don't feel it to my place. Are you enjoying yourself? And I said, I'm a great time. Gotta worry about so one guy miserably, and when Frank would wanna come into still court co-ord-, Mike, I s record might there's nothing like it. Hey, hold on just, you know, just like straight stand. Yeah. You want to court because I know I need to know. The wire was too big. And they don't fit in the thing. Right. Right. So you can't capsule. Exactly. So so what I started, you know, how long do I do and they'll go you'll do fifteen you'll do thirty. And we'll decide and I said, okay. When you think I'll know they'll go. It don't get page when he went to go on and you'll feel a little tug on my and you just wrap. Okay. So some nights, it was any would you and you'd see in the wings he'd go, and he would talk some. So you don't know, you know, some nights you doing. Yeah. So one night.

I looked like his x Ray his fucker would walk in and. A rough night out there. I said, well, you know, it's it's you know, it's winter. Winter. What did you mean? Stick around for Frank. And I went to what was just it was just a joke. They didn't get it. And they went, but they hit a sheaf rank. And I would say head still of course, cigarette. I was just doing poorly. Yeah. You know? And Hank is trying to figure it all out. He's he says while we kind of feel that you make Mr. Sinatra's late once in a while. So we've that you would take an dig at that like stick around for Frank as in he'll be here. Right. And I would I would never I would never stick around for Frank. And and and making jokes to me because they're not here to see me. Are you not happy opening for Frank the next night bring Andriessen and I'm opening for LIZA in Reno. These this is this is what they put a bag over your head and applying it was a little it was a little you're going to take a few days, and they brought, you know, and it's like the first time I opened for. Frank. He forgot that. I was because he saw me with Sammy or something. Yeah. So when I showed up he looks at me, you know, he was out of it then, but he was still hitting it hard. And and he looks at Jillian egos. Wes, Tommy as I'm standing there treason. Yeah. And they would well he's going Campbell tonight. So who's this? Remember Franken Madame last night? This is Brad open. I last night. So was a little it was like the home life. So Driesen advance his opener before he was the main man. That's how it worked. You guys would rotate we would he would rotate people just go like one night you're opening for him. And then he made a call. And then you're open for LIZA still had the run of the. Yeah, he makes me, and I would rotate with those three. And it was you know, it was a blast. And what years this gotta be? Got to be a hundred eighty nine ninety everyone. I was with I would open for them. They would die. Okay. Gone. Awry dean was already gone. So I did Sinatra's last couple of weeks did Sammy's last couple of weeks. You know, LIZA we're waiting, but but it's like it was a joke Garrett with them, and they'll be dead. Yeah. Yeah. But that was the life, right? Joining and I loved and I came up on that music. I grew up on I record. My dad gave me was Sammy Davis live at the coconut grove. And with all the craziness. You know, my dad was my guy, you, know, course. And I just didn't know what was going on. And he wasn't diagnosed very late and he would like riding. Yeah. And he wouldn't stay on the meds. And God bless him. He was in and out of you know, places and it's hard. It's hard to see anyone go through that. But he was a funny guy, man. He was fucking quick funny. Did he live? He was around long enough to see you in Vegas and go out to Raymond. He came to the Raymone saw the vague opened for Franken. Sammy to him that was. Yeah. That was for him because you know, that was important. It was important and worth it. And just it just did he get to meet him. He did to meet him that it was really great. And then my mom. Tom year old man turned to mush it is right, really? And there's nothing like there's nothing. I know what it meant to him 'cause his childhood was fucked up. You know, his dad used to beat him up, and he ran away at fourteen and never went back to New York all the way to California with his best friend and just lived on the street and got a job at sixteen is a tough cat. But a harder gold never laid a hand on me. And he was always, you know, fucking batted around. Those are the Jews know how to paint boats. You got that right guy. True. I've sort of moved away from that that weird kind of stereotyping like there have been plenty of Jews were cops fighters. But there's no stairs. That's true. That's true. Yeah. So so most like you end up in Vegas. He's still in Vegas. But but the weird thing is you've got this whole generation do I keep using that word. But believe me, I'm not far behind you. But I'm saying that all these guys you start out with all these guys that you you're not you're not how we would act per se watching them land things. But that was not your thing or you were happy doing what you're doing because you could gamble and to not well. No, I want to act I wanted to act you know, through all the way through back into town to audition time. Okay. Oh, yeah. I live. Yeah. I didn't live Vig. I was coming. I was flying out all the time. I did. I did a lot of voice stuff early on. I not tell my producer knows. He's like there's all generation of hurt him on cartoons. Yeah. Exactly. And so I was doing that a lot. And I I was addition. You know, I did a little guest spot on Roseanne. I did a little shot on the Paul Reiser thing. Subs. Doing a mad about you. Yeah. Little show that goes, hey, Paul Reiser. He's like, you know, he finishes at I'm out for a while. Yeah. Raise my kids going to relax good now. He's back. He's back, man. He's back doing spots all over. But. Yeah. No. So I was I was always really trying to, you know, find that thing. I was not a voice. I was I never had a special. Yeah. No because they would come and all the things that comics do you did not do. Yeah. I didn't. And no tonight show. I did tonight. I know I didn't Johnny. Did you did three Johnny? And I did a Franklin with. Well, Ed McMahon ran star. Search right, okay. That helped greatly. And I did that must've been amazing. It was I was twenty four. It was crazy. And I was on there. And I it was it was okay. Didn't kill. I look at the sets. Now. I cringe. I did one with Cosby, and he sat there I. Yeah. And you said to me out on the plane ios, really weird. I was at the desert inn. I swear to you and get a call from Cosby. Yeah. And I'd never met with the filth. Yeah. Well, you're close. He goes, listen, I'm I'm I'm guest hosting tonight. It's last minute. Johnny's not doing it. I've heard nice things about you. Yeah. He's sending his plane. We're doing tonight. Will you be the comic? And I'm opening for crystal. Gayle. Choice. Yeah. Exac exactly got someone to cover me. Go out there. We're on the plane. This is eighty six he's reading the times. He's reading USA today. He's on the cover of every entertainment section. I don't know if it was planned, the Cosby show is gigantic. So he goes he do me in the act. You know, and I went yes. Yes. And he goes don't tonight. And I I I was going to close with it here. I of course, I'm on the tonight show with Cosby, how do I not do causing right? Yeah. You don't need it, man. Find yourself. You know interesting, but I did five impressions at night. So I start my set and not great. You know? I it's okay. It's okay. I'm not dying. But it's never what I want. Right. And I'm like, I'm gonna have to close I'm gonna gotta do Cosmi. Yeah. I just got it. I do it the play. Goes fucking, right. Because he sitting there, right? Yeah. We fly back plane. He's going to he's working the Hilton now headlining the Hilton same night. Yeah. Actually, I got back for the show in time. We made it by not a word. Not a word, and he was you know, coming up. He was one of my guys having enough shirt. And not a word. Never never forget it. Never forget it. You know, what what you know? I'm an apology. Never apologize. Yeah. Yeah. I think you know, especially right. Yeah. That was your point. No, actually, actually know this might be the time to do it. I don't know what's on your mind. Probably doing a lot of thinking. But I just wanna make an immense to longtime that night on the plane shut the fuck on. It was brutal. But like in all this time opening for people did you ever open for comics? In vegas. I opened for when I started out I opened in Atlantic City for Sinbad ones. But no never never comic. So how old you when Ray happens? I mean sees you've been you've even making a living to voice overs into Vegas and everything had a couple of failed shows that was on before Ray failed around you or John was built around me. And was what you do on that really not good. I played a single parent. Ironically, who was from Nebraska. Okay. They wouldn't. I said, you know, let's make it, you know, New York jersey or maybe Miami. You know, let's no, yeah. It's important from the midwest. Whether nothing reads it so they lightened by hair, and they put me in penny loafers swear to God. And it was a show on NBC that was on Saturday night. And I was a voice over impressionist. And yet that had my own agency is what? Yeah. I know. Ed by owed had agency. And they did the voices for the commercial. You know that thing Tom Sharpe was on it. It was really funny member Tom sharp new. Yeah. He did a lot of commercials Lada voice over stuff too. So he was in it and brandy gold who was Harry, gold's young little daughter played my daughter now, she's a giant successful agent. And so that was called first impressions lasted six weeks. Then that was on a show where I played a gala or one of the first gay characters really put out on time. And it was it was a really cool show called pursuit of happiness, and Larry Miller was on it, who's brilliant. And it was from the people that also. You know? I haven't talked him in a in a very very, yeah. Which was just brutal. Here's one of the nicest men in the world. He's been opening for Seinfeld. Okay. So he's back out. Yeah. I tried to get him at the club. No answer. I just love me. So funny. And and then that was short lived. And then I ended up by dishing for for ratio. I was thirty five it was in ninety five. Yeah. And he got very lucky. Well, that the character was so like, you know, you know, you made it your own. But there was the the comedy chops of it. You know, that sort of slow burn deadpan, you know, thing what was great is that like, I don't know that that's really what you do. But you so versed in the style that you know, you really built a character that guys, you know, rights that was kind of it. They were not they gonna million was tough to get the dish in because they just didn't see it. And and that was you know, they didn't know my stand. Up a lot of people didn't and I hadn't met Ray better off though in retrospect, much better off much better off. And you didn't know Ray. I did not I did not. And I got it. Joined with Ray for life return ity 'cause McLean is such a good, man. I he's doing some amazing work. Great guy. Just a great guy. Now, I change. That's what that's why. I really love him. It's like he's the same guy. It's hard not to change its very funny. Like, you know, obviously, some things have changed in the external of like, why me I think is quality of life changed, obviously. But I mean, there's a Casio watch. Okay, casio. Where's he live bread? It's not nice. No. But I mean like I love him points. But what I'm saying? Is that stage? I dunno. I dunno. Yeah. Not gonna get it. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. You're right. But he's a decent guys. He's like, you know, a religious, dude. He's grounded in things. You know? He's he's a he's he's definitely one of the great. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It's and the show is great. You did good did good. I'm grateful unless. I'm lucky I've worked hard. Let me ask. You some shirt the the final season of till death. Yeah. We did. You did. What was that? Like people just sort of like fuck, you go crazy crazy how I mean? It was sort of like, you know, it was what it was. You know, it wasn't successful. But they acted on because you wanted to try to sure across the finish line. Sure. But it seemed like that fourth season was just like the writing like pushed over the top and away, and like, you know. And breaking the fourth wall and all that stuff up. It was almost experimental. It was experimental and desperate and pushed and we had four show runners in for years, and they just couldn't capture really my voice, you know, working with Jolie was she's amazing. Yeah. Fearless. And we had a great chemistry, and it was fun. We just didn't really know what we were doing. I just come off, Raymond. And to be honest. I could have been. I really knew what I wanted. Right. And I knew what the network wanted. And I felt I was gracious with the cast the people involved, and when it kept changing show runners. Yeah, I just I bucked the lot of it. And and oversteered and my my. You know, my micromanaging kind of kicked in controlling issues kicked in because I came up such a wonderful show where writing was really incredible. And I felt this kind of started really really large. It's you know, it's like you Phil Rosenthal. Who ran Raymond? He was like could this happen? That's how every story. And even though in comedy, you swing big at the end of the day could it happen? Yeah. So you know, that kind of is off the table and some stuff got a little broad. And and I just you know, I have to remember that no matter what situation you're in. Usually usually people are doing their best. And and it's it's very it's very very tough thing to to to find that great combo of show runner and cast and writing, and and and it's very very difficult. And I was you know, I it was my own vehicle, and I really. I had opinions. And I had I had stuff that I felt could or should have been different. Yeah. That being said the pilot was written, and they found me it, isn't like this. Bryant was written from right, but you were a hot commodity. Yeah. For ten minutes. Yeah. Good ten minutes is a ten but like, but so it was sort of desperation. But but like, I think in retrospect that there were chances being taken it sort of a unique season of television. We have three different daughters. You know, there's a whole thing. You know? I remember and FOX was very supportive. I think they forgot we were on. I don't know how we got four years and the head of FOX before we were yanked. They very nicely called me at home, and the the ratings were really visible, you know, and he goes, look, you know, we've had a great a great thing with FOX a great thing was Sony, and they were really collaborative as well. And you know, we look we all wanna win. But you know, it just it did. They said to me, they go, look, you know, we're gonna pull the show. He said, you know, your last time out the gate. You got a point. Oh to this is back. When there was there was less channels. Yes. Point. Oh, two, and they go, you know, I I went who that's rough. And they went out of, you know, our our our relationship, and you know, we just wanna let you know before you read about it. Is there a thing we can do before we pull it you have any ideas? And I said give me three more episodes, and I could bring you two zero. I said any big shot can get a one six to eight to be able to say we're so close to zero. We're not point to point to right. Give me three more weeks. I don't know if they got it. Yeah. I don't think that you know, that was a really. Yes. Did they give you the three weeks? No, no active. It's not like, no. But him zero. No. I also like the did these like why that I don't think people always understand that, you know, as stand up like if you're not going to be a writer, if you're not gonna be a show runner that there's their jobs in show business. Stand up Stu can host you can open for musical accident. But also game shows were something that standups did early days in like took him my clubs believe it a draw from those right? But I, but like I missed all that. And I don't know how I would have felt about it when I started necessarily, but in retrospect, the head sure, but like, but as a group as I got older like you will watch match game or you watch Hollywood square, and it'd be like holy shit. These are these are the some of the greatest comics ever worked, right? You know in these boxes. Doing the what's the word fit? Spritzing spritzing with your you use striking. No, no, that's. It was like it was always great weird little Marty. Allan shirt. Paul. Lynn Marie usca fucking do Hollywood squares game. It was Charles Nelson Reilly and Brett summers. Yeah. Yeah. And Don Adams would be every all them, a young guy, tapped and all that. Yeah. And what he was doing when she was a Senator square. There was big dough on Hollywood squares. Yeah. I mean when I did that. And when I did the small game shows like the tattle tales, and the the the one where you draw with Bert convy. I mean, you do you know, you feel all five episodes in one day, you just change your shirt and walk out there. I didn't have to go on the road for week. And a lot of people don't realize that comics used to showcase on the fucking dating game. Yes. Yes. I'm Robert wool. That's right. Dating home Celik. Absolutely. Like, it's this sort of one of these weird sort of glossed? Yes. Chunk of show business outlet, man comics scene. Yeah. That comics gig, man guy. So what is this this in in terms of being fired from Indian casinos, and and inappropriate jokes shirt? Do you defend it or do you? Do you say like, you're right. They're not right. I mean. Yeah. Yeah. Yourself. You made a mistake. No. I did it again some of the Indians love it. Right. You know? But, but it's you know, I mean, people are warned, you know, you're not getting a guy from Raymond. But do you do the philosophy that Rickles had? And I don't know how well it can apply any more that you know, your equal opportunity insulting. And that year. I just I just don't defend it. I mean, I'm a lot. You don't offend what I I don't feel. I have to defend the stand jokes people that they're people that don't, you know, it's it's like it was a site that unless you see me on the road or in theaters people don't really know what I do. And it's a lot of improv. Yes. Eighty percents crowd were. Yeah. And it's it's Tangy. I mean, it's especially nowadays. It's Tangy and GM you ride you're on your on a, but you know, tell you where I'm lucky I've I've I played it doofus and put upon guy for nine years on. Major. They think you're entitled to the anger. It's a little bit come up for me. And they end up seen it as like he snapped. Yeah. From all the like, the people that sag it. The guy that we knew exactly, and I think people. No, I don't mean it people know that you know, he's just a big log anyway, which I really am. And I make fun of myself in my life and my career, and you know, and in the basement of the MGM next to New York pretzel and an assault store, literally. And you know, it's on the way to self parking. And it's become you know. Humbly. It's the club in Vegas. It's killing everyone else. There's nine clubs now. And I bring in great accent. I bring in our rated ax. And I don't do, you know, the jugglers magicians, your basic approach is that look I'm going to it's going to get racy early. And that you, you know, I we do we insult people. And, but if you got call to an outside being fired at someone said, you know, you said this horrible thing about women are accurate or whatever. Sure. What would you say? What's your general defense? I really I really don't you wanna know what it is. Yeah. Let me give you a refund. If you didn't enjoy yourself, right? And we do there's no, look, it's like stereotypes exist. I know it seems like a hacky type of thing. I think now more than ever. Yeah. When we look at our country, which is a disaster in my opinion. Yeah. I think there's almost more room for it. Because all the PC bullshit, his come the bite us in the ass. Anyway. Because what is it really in my opinion? You know, what saying it doesn't bring us together at drives away. That's how I've always felt you know, that's how I always felt and Vina seven for Jew with no Atlantic ability that came up pretty fucked up. You know, I've always taken shots of myself. Now, I'm just kind of putting up the mirror. You know? It's like I had the white trash in the front row. I had a guy with a with a maga- hat on. And you know. I walked them. And then Twitter and everything else. Is that it this liberal prick and Boban? Oh, yeah. And the whole thing is like, it's it's like, we're not allowed to why can't we have an opinion as just because we're performance that we have a platform. I agree with you. And it's always that's that's the only place where it's like, they don't think we work. Yeah. And that's the thing that bothers me. Yes. That's exactly elites they what do they do these actors like we work hard? Yes. What do you do? Yeah. That's and that's kinda where that's kinda where you know, kind of where it went. And then I have people that come to the club. And they wanna keep sitting in the front because they love get the abuse. But the thing is is you know, we try to remember because it's a small room seats to fifty. We try to remember the people in the back gotta here. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. And also, we don't wanna keep sitting. You know, my point there's some people love it. I think it's almost release from all the bullshit attention. No. You have that that laughter. That can be you know, almost crying. You know? I it is it is it it's a profound release to be abused. In a context. That's entertaining. Is it not? Thank you. You get it. I do you know, you know, it's it's difficult mccarter. It's difficult. You're a great writer. I've never been a great writer. My thing was improving, and my thing was, you know, just going full. But the thing is weird. Is that you, you know, I've been I've, you know, in in a moment because I'm a club comic by nature of not some off guy came up, you know, in crowd work with something I needed to know how to do. And I can do it. Right. And I, you know, it's like it's a little Etta character for who. I am really. But it's reflex. And I do it and there've been moments where I'll do it and I'll realize like the whole. Hooters? I started. That was a little much. But you know, and then like right after I do it after I get like that was crazy what just happening all policies. Well, kind of I'll try to be diplomatic on stage. But, but ultimately what my grandmother used to go. She used to like to go see. You know, she'd say like I 'cause I love Betty, but he acted when I was young and she would say go him in Vegas, but he's very filthy or you ever see him now. Oh, unbelievable. And she would go, see Rickles. And but she remember she said this to me, and my grandma Goldie, she goes, you know, after the show he pouches. Very nice. Yeah. It does a song. I'm nice guy to me like he like after the show. He would you know, actually apologize. But every show was exactly the same. Alan king and Vegas who I don't like that much. I didn't like that much. I respect that. But like it was like you sleepwalking. Yup. And it was it was this pointing to me. So this new show. Yes. How many do you do ten twelve doing thirteen and we just got the back nine yesterday doing a full season? And it's we're really having a ball. I'm loving it. You know like you. It's part of an insufferable. Yeah. And Terron killin for Messa knows the lead. And he's terrific. And late miester is brilliant from gossip girl. It's really a good show. And it's about single parents. And and a group of people that are kind of thrown together, socially, not that they would ever hang out with each other right because their kids do right? And I've been a single parent for a long time. And you find yourself in these, you know, niches at you're like, I don't know if I could go to that birthday party added, Tom again, you know, and you. About you never thought you which is why you're live in grand wonderfully. Don't have to worry about that idea. More people say that to be used to. Yeah. It was at the vet yesterday with fucking cat. Right next to me talking to me about you, like a writer, she's Filipino woman older woman. And she goes, you got children, and I go, I don't go for you. It's true, very difficult. It's very I mean, you know, it's a lot. But the material you relate to. Oh, yeah. Big time. And he's still do voice over work. It was still do some voice over work. And I wanna say as we close here that, you know, once I gave you the note, you know, he stayed on the Mike and I appreciate up salute. You know, you're never too toll to learn. What I tell everyone and really an honor to be a man just happy for you. That's getting me. Thanks, man. Hasn't been easy to get on the show. Is that true? Oh, it never said. Noti is diff-. No. I don't want to get into it. Now. I who did you say no to who've I said no to. Yeah. Well, you know now we because we work with booker's wanna say that. Yeah. There's just a way it's really just about like can I talk to that person? Does that person? Do I think or do they have enough of a story to do what we do here? You know? It's never like, you know, I it's not about whether I like people are not necessarily am I interested, and you know, is there a story there? Right. You know? And can't you know with comics almost all? Always sure we're the same breed. Yes. And I I never worry about that. That's interesting. I read a rudder on here. Oh, we did a bunch of dates together here. She's like a real pro, man views amazing. She would go out first. And then after her I go on and it was it was whiplash. It's just amazing that they're these these women men these people I mean, she was a huge act, and she's never stopped and she's a Vegas person. And she's, but she's unto herself. Yes. And and, you know, you'd be get lost in this world, the generation younger than me or to where you know, they they don't have any real sort of sense of history except for a few people everyone's got their people. But there was that that original generation of after the old guys that she's part of a big time that you know, that we're very defined and professional, and you know, and historical acts. Yep. You're right. You know? So we had a blast. Right. You know? So in in in Tansu your question. I don't it's not I say no to people. I get a list, and I'm like, I'm not really interested. I am sure. It's not like so and so wants to go in the show, and I'm like, no fuck them. But I have you said I have but not really not not recently. Well, actually when you're on your way over here. And I'm never late. I called three people. I'm never late because I have a thing about about being. Yeah. And and I I was crazed. I mean, really, so that's but thank you for having me.

Back of a southwest airline. You have shirt exit roche protocol than how to have sex during covid protocol menu. Exactly yeah see. i'll take the number three touchy. I have to ask how it is. I mean really how it is to create comedy indian in this environment. I mean i know. It's uncharted for everybody including the folks out there but what what is well. I'm lucky that. I have an amazing team. And i'm lucky that i met the mgm. Because i was like how are we going to do it. How is it gonna come together. You know this is better than what a lot of buddies are doing. I talked to two quendale. Who's a friend of mine who worked at drive in Comedy show where if they if they if they like you they if it's funny they honk if they if it's a titter they flash their lights. And if you're brad garret they they put it in drive. Yeah they just floor it it. I was kinda thinking like i. I would never have the to do the drive-in Fig anyway But it's it's they're out there doing this. This is worried here. A lot of my act is is. I don't know if you've ever seen me a sober but a lot of my act is You know a lot of audience and So i can see tonight. I do have noculars going to bring up with the big but it is. It is The room looks great. People need to get out. People need to work safely and You know the covert protocols are very very strict here. They are home even had to bathe this week. So it's this week. Yeah i was going to say there was a different Fragrance about you then. I'm used to thank thank you to tactfully. Yeah but it's a in talking to you. During the shutdown we have had a few conversations at a. There was a thought that the you might not wanna bring back Your brand unless you could really do it. Well no downstairs at the underground conversation. About how that would work the distancing and that was you didn't want to bring this bring the show back down there. Well we couldn't we couldn't because of you know twenty five feet from our stage in that room which was really built for comedy so low ceiling. It's the jazz urkel type of vibe twenty five feet. We were only allowed to have about thirty five forty people and they would be all the way in the end. It just like this doesn't make sense Though i usually draw around thirty. I don't know if you saw the numbers tonight. I'm actually getting refunds. I haven't even hit the stage yet. Visit protocol to ask for refunds. If you've been shirt sure when they recognize me. The phones are ringing off the hook but but they said lettuce. Because i knew. I couldn't do it down there. And you literally brought up our furniture from downstairs There's still a lot of gum under the table. It's got that club vibe and mgm said. Let us try and they really did did a nice nice job and Got my same staff. We've got our sound. People are are tech people. That's that's what my buddy back there. Spike hitting the bong and things are just a things and we. We have a your people that seem very interested in what you do. Or they're on. They're on a porn site. I think i'm not sure about your your candy. Crush named the game. I had a really a pilot in the pipeline. Had an amazing show runner. We were ready to go and it was really me. It was doing what i do. You know just just a baby boomer. Who feels very lost. Doesn't understand why people can have a sense of humor. That kinda went with my right now. I'm i'm inc credit. I mean you can't you can't even show your to someone anymore. His totally totally killed this at that. That really that pilot was the real thing. It was a runner on your pay ended up in. Hr i ended up in hr. When i was doing my last series you are a big fan of and i ended up in. Hr by joking around on set and just kind of doing what. I do And What it was a big samba cast and was a wonderful wonderful group of people. And i do have to. You know that's not a hollywood. Wouldn't be talking. I would be saying that they were but in front of the behind. The camera and i miss them greatly. Because it's one of those shows where you go while this. I mean everyone is so great which i it was a single parents all parents. Yes and very realistic. High played a ninety year old dad of two seven year old twins not very very cutting edge only seven years old yet act. Yeah exactly exactly. And i had test tube actually not even a woman i went to. They started as sea monkeys and ended up. If you feed them right they they become conjoined. If you have the right obama counting separate them. And i i was doing my stick on the set between sets talking to a friend and i was talking a she goes. She goes brat. Who is your. did you get a manicure. I said i did. She goes you get pedicures. And i said yes. Yes and not. Only that. But i actually i stand upright and we just started talking about life. You does your is. He does manicure. You know Because she figures.

Look into nails go. She has through exactly kwela his fiancee's who were against a again are you know are woody. Plants got been engaged for about four years. Almost i think five years okay. Now she's dating covid was a little chirpy about something and i ended up in a an hour. Later i get a call really and They go And i really thought it was terron. Kilim was the star of that shelby's from s an incredibly the and he does incredible voices and and after i did a one lender between shots on the set talking at the cast. Now they know me. There was one of the younger actors you know who was kind of a little tight. And when i did an impression of the woman who who usually does my nails in. Which i've been going to yoshi for fifteen years and a nice nice a vietnamese lady sweet but she always embarrasses me because she'll hold up my hand when every time i will go look at this guy can charge them time so she said i'm so i'm just telling the story like that and ring ring ring when it back on the trailer. There was someone on the set. That was Offended by that and I nature calls. And i really thought it was in doing a voice and Is this brad garret tonight right away like an ill name. brad garret. nagle on no he. I don't even know stock. I go on no here here. He di used to we get dead and i save at and she she goes. This is megan thee. Somebody who's going to render the yes. Whatever and at this behavior yes because this is making from disney hr. And then i go none a he really die and i couldn't stop myself because i got that cold urine down the back of my head and and she goes listen. I i'd love to talk to you. And i go who who is making campbell from from h. I and i said okay and the initials stand for. Because you've never been here. I go never in my life and she goes well. I'm on the. I'm on the lot. And i'm seeing a couple of other people and i said well i'm i'm engaged. Anyway she goes. I'd like to see and i go. You know let's make an appointment. I said and i'm i'm not scared. I'm confused and i said well you know today. I i have a full And she goes no no. I could see your schedule. You're not in three and four and maybe we could sit down a little scary there. Yeah does he police here. Yes so i changed my pants. And i went straight. Hr and she says she goes Do you know why you're here. And i said That you probably have a list and she goes. I do the united nations. Yeah offensive and i said well okay and i said can i ask you something this all true. She goes sure i go. How long have you been in charge. Because about eleven years and i said and i said do you find the pendulum. His gone incredibly to the other side. She goes without question and she says you're the third comic that i've seen this week. That's working on a on a abc show. And i go who you're right away. That's where i go are they. She goes well. The others sought their first time. And i said okay i. I obviously didn't get into this business to offend people though. That seems to be the the the way it's always gone. I said but where does the human she says. I'm gonna tell you something. She says. I was at a chapelle concert in vegas. And i said i was there to she this obviously before kovic. She was just happened. You know nine months ago would win a mandalay bay right. Yeah yeah and just a phone free concert. That's exactly like our phones. That's exactly that was the first time that's ever happened. Dave chapelle. that's exactly right. That's exactly right. And she says you know. I was embarrassed to laugh and it was so damn funny and i said well i feel sorry for you and she says i hear you. She says i was with two other. People from niche. Are she goes. Chapelle is the funniest guy. i said. Hand my opinion to i go. Why were you for. Because i was with some colleagues and i was i said well. That's said i'm not. I'm not playing dr phil but but that's something you've got to look at. I said because if it's gotten to the point that you can and and you know. And i said but i don't think that transportation or the people that reported to hr about the hamas and she goes yup can we talk about the You know the the manicurist and then that was okay story anyway. That's that's i don't want to have a lot of what's a lot of thoughts about this. I i mean if you talk about. Did you see chapelle on saturday. Night live i did. Yeah well did. He's out there. Yom i mean. He's i i really on edge. I i know he is. I know he is. And i think you know so bill burr. Yeah you know who is is what yeah. What are my favorite s- and these guys are and i gotta tell ya if you start you cannot start century art You know you can't now. I think what she was saying is is. Is you know she did show because look. You know if you know you've been you've been doing this a long time. We all all get it but but save that stage. It's it's really not probably in her hands. Just keep thinking of disney. Hr abc and fox and fx and hulu disney in one way as a cartoon figure but disney owns everything. That's perfect relic out. Yeah and am just wondering a are they actually coming down art or they coming down on professional decorum away from art. Because they weren't they weren't coming after your show content. They were coming away from the context of of that duchy. Veg true that's true and that to me is where the pilot was where the show idea was. This version is have in the show. The opening was it was written. You know we had an amazing show runner. We got cd two-pack from sex in the city and she fell in love at the story and we were really rolling and then things after cove and this is a great lesson for everybody. I will always be. That guy usually stay at the old white privileged guide to a lot of people. And that's okay but through that. I'm making fun of myself. But where do you draw. The line is it. He's inappropriate. he's from another era his heroes. Were you know rickles and briar and guys like that. So it's so you know what you don't have to listen to it. There is an off button. That being said i was having a private conversation. Offstage doing my stick often. I was and this person walked by you and you know said something like hey dude you know i don't i don't drive in that lane and i said well the way you drive you. What happens if if you're doing your act. This may have happened already. What's going to happen tonight. And sunday could berry. And you're doing crowd work and And you fire a scouting. It's insulting it someone they go to the mgm resorts is. It hasn't happened or could it conceivably happen or happened that the brasses no no. Because it's it's look. Here's here's where i come from because you know life is short. If you feel that you have to walk out and are funded by a comedian. Okay you know what i mean. I mean if selene dionne called your wife that's horrible. She's a singer. Did happen to me. Though twice in caesar's i was with the you know someone who was questionable. Okay no but if only i i always say if you're hurt or offended you gotta get over it because the mgm always say it's an adult show it says but your audience is on the ticket and you know what if you really bent out of shape. I'm happy to give you a refund Because at the end of the day it isn't like that is what it's about you know. I've gone to comedy shows where i was offended because they weren't funny but i didn't go to the management you know but i get it you know comedy is look what's more subjective than that and there are nights at works better than others in but You know it's it's funny. 'cause myself can get racial but i've never missed the most on average and it's rare but it happens it's always like the white people from des moines. The really get really uptight. Because i think it somehow presses their button of may be who they are when they're not on stage right and i think there's something about that you know Well not going to have that kind of audience. Probably here you know. We don't have any. I don't think so looking at the room. i don't see an audience. I see a guy in the back. Hr you gotta tomorrow man. Look at that. How are you. You don't stand a chance. Yeah no but we're very. We're very excited to be back. We're excited i think people need to laugh Should think about other options. But it's great to get people to work again. I know that sounds corny but people need to work and we gotta help the people that are getting food to the folks need food. I'm doing you know we're all trying to do that. And I'm working with project. Angel food in la on thanksgiving. We gotta start helping folks. are you know. And once captain marmalade decides to leave. He will leave correct. I mean he. He's inching toward reality z. Is that what you call at toward reality the title of something else. Yes yes. I believe that it's going to happen. But it's just another another speed bump in our interest thirty sanity or whatever the it's so pathetic and please cut this out because you don't need the problems of it just it's it's it's amazing. It's amazing how many well. I don't wanna get this. I promised his air wouldn't she. Don't talk about hr racial. Don't talk about trump. i should. It's john what else am i gonna talk about kazillionaire characters. Exactly what you're talking about by the way. Yes yeah yes. he is. Brilliant and that show is favourite. Show in town. You gotta see absent. And he's brilliant and it's interesting. It's like 'cause i've what i mean. Every time i've seen and i rarely go to shows two four times. He crushes night and i'm wondering Of course he has better material than me. But but but my real question is. Is it easier to accept when you're playing a character. Yeah then when they go god. That's really that from raymond you know but again. That's not me. i am doing a character. I don't go to the greek restaurant. What i'm off and go i'm gonna put my listen. You know i did try if you went to detroit at the lotus the lotus Farm the place. I went How much just just to look at it and you got gain and then it was a whole other thing. God please forgive me. And that's the lady. And how are you able to book comics right now. And what is their response to this. Whole new world thrilled to be working. what we're trying to do is some I would say ninety percent of the comics. We've reached out to or onboard. They realized the what do room is in. Its very different. But we've all done. Corporate gigs is nicer than ninety percent. Of the places. I played in the first twenty years of my life. They just wanna get on stage. I'll tell you what i know. This is going to air whenever you. Tonight is literally eight months to the day when i was onstage last eight months. Yep wow yeah mac. Of course forbid i would write during that tick got in the way my eating but It's i think you know comics. Especially they haven't been able to even if you're not gigging you'll go into town you're jumped on that your local. There's been none of that. I think it's just a it's going to be. You know i. I think the audience is. Hopefully you're gonna walk. They know the comic or or a ready to go. Have you Scouted or thought a scouting or talk to folks who were operating other rooms like been in the laugh factory for example since this is becca. Saas care top over luxor theater right do his thing. Have you had a chance to check out and see what's going on in other what happened at the mirage. You've said you've talked about that. Deal to in your own with with the rare motto. Yes that really happened for. You did defend roller. I offended well. Here's here's wondered if this is a true story. Let me let me be fair. Okay my my my time with ray in that in that scenario was kind of coming to an end and i know i. I feel that you know i don. I should close but out of follower you say stopped and they're not even jokes. You don't have jokes. Thank cadence. All your abbas cadence. You have amazing time if you look at your stuff after your manager. yeah Of this stuff you own verbiage. But that's the razor. It's verbiage there's no sun so but we had a great time. And and i you know i headlined for a while there alone. And then they went garrett he needs help so then they paired me with with ray and that went really well. This is back in the heyday. When joe is really really hot and then You know the. I think the As i like to say the bloom came off the rose with my act a little bit and got a. i think it got a little more Acerbic and When i had a feeling. I wasn't sure i was going to continue. But they knew ray was gonna continue. Never going to bring in Zach sat kevin james. James yes who by the way owes me ten dollars for that movie with the the talking. Zookeeper the animals at the zoo. That would talk ten bucks run into him at the us. Ron i well. I don't know what it was. It was It was who mania or something of that you were in that but what happened is one night. There was a guy that had five million dollar credit line in the front row with what i really thought was. I thought he kidnaps someone from daycare. Okay i didn't know. And i brought that up. And he was a he was asian he looked very very nice and and When i came out then i went nice to see you tonight. And he was just nothing and i go any word on my laundry and that was my hand and he got up and walked and as he went up the island. Don't check now. you're you came to a show. I could pick it up. Sunday. i got the ticky. No ticky no getty right. And i couldn't stop you know so as you walked out of the room i said but whatever you do don't get in a car don't drive. Am i right people. And it was beyond crickets and there was. I think count chocula. Was there that night. Because all i heard was so quiet john it was so you know how i you know deal term crickets. Yeah i actually heard unborn crickets. I think we call that a pupa pupa puke. Cricket larvae cri- cricket larvae larvae. And then and then after that it was quite. And then i really had to dig out from there But there was. And that was mr a and he was not happy. And i think what happened so far matches after after after the show as i wanted to do what you do and i was gonna say oppose it come back you supposed to come back with his daughter or whatever at like i should talk. He was supposed to come back after. Meet romano you know and And it was all thing and raziq wanna golfer shadow creek. He was my you know it was one of these things. It was one of these things. So i think i think i don't want to say the last drop but i think it helped the momentum and then and then i went to them and i said you know what i wanna i wanna do my own club and they were like after that show. You wanna run. So i wasn't in no because they have the room and i really wanna do the mgm because that was really you know it was home to me for a long long time I used to open for all their acts here. And i knew everybody in richard sturm really started this. Be bali with richard right. That's right. I sure was sure was so. They said we don't. We don't have any space. I went to the trump. And i cut my teeth there. I learned a lot there. I got a call from the gm and they said listen. There's some retail spots down below. And you wanna you know maybe build it out and we're able to start. I was able to start from scratch. And that's that's what was really really an end. The laugh actor who is the same way. It's really well. They're wonderful was back in there and they made it work over there with a twenty five. Feasible harry basil's amazing known him forever. He so great and they figured it out. There's was enough room for everyone in this town you know. And that's that's that's what i've always said you know when i started out here owning a club because i worked the improv for twenty five years right I wanted to be the first club owner to share the comics. As you remember that we had. I had a lot it was it was a problem and you know we were blackballed for a while. Where the improv said if you work any other club you can't work. The improv and i told the ninety day deal. Brad what was it wa it was. It was a three month. Yeah you couldn't work in another club three months after the after before. Yeah so you know. Put you out six. Had to work the improv. Pretty much exclusively. That's it and i told by my fellow friends at were comics. I listen to them. They have nineteen rooms across the country. Right don't not just it's it's about business and and they got that and and There were a couple of other rooms. I said look you know the vegas the audience. It goes to to the laugh. Factory isn't going to go to mike club in the same weekend. They're going to go to one huge show. Maybe a variety show maybe a comedy club or who knows what we should share these guys and really double triple up their work and Some clubs started to do that. And they kind of but they all got nervous because back in the day the province very powerfully say But now we're at a point with the improv gone. That guy will work my room and he'll be across the street following week so it only has one plane ticket so he doesn't have to make it a huge thing and it's back today they'd go up and down the strip. Well now there's just there's not as great a pool of comics available right now because there's not as mobile right. I mean and that's true that's true but it's amazing we had a an onslaught of comics moved here yet. The last six months. I think because of covid because of cost of living. Because it's a great hub and there's a lot of great acts that but you know we have people that are flying from back. East drew. Thomas is coming in for new year's eve and so people want it. We'll get work bit. What's great is how many comics now live here. Yeah a lot of great locals i think. Yeah i think all those reasons are why you know i. I think that they've anticipated that. There will be work in las vegas before this work and the ability of bob zany Was yet laughs. He lives he lives here now and i didn't even know that ended. But he's you know your position. Sure sure sure is. Calm up and twenty minutes later. What do you think is the entertainment guru with what's going on. How do you feel what. What do we i mean i i heard something from from similac and and you know i mean what's well we're in right now. We're in the crucial time to head off. The numbers that kobe yup cases and hospitalizations and deaths across our state like every other city era and every other state I think that right now. The it's we're in the test of the of the whole thing right now. I think we're really under the gun because if people can't voluntarily With with some strong emphasis follow these directives. We risk being shut down again at least for a period of time. It's crazy. it's tough on las vegas residents right now. Yes not sure. It's very tough on people. Who live in las vegas because we're being told we shouldn't have. You shouldn't go out yard work. And of course battalion industry were welcoming people to come in. Yes and they come in from other places up to the people who live here and work here to to enforce the that are keeping us at home exactly. That's that's that's the bitch of the thing that doesn't make sense. That's why we opened. I mean you know. We're just small drop in the bucket but people need to To work you know people need to get paid. I feel better in these places than i do. Walking around some public place absolutely. I'm telling you i agree. And that's why. I would never open up the club below in the basement because of because of safety the safety and you know the best thing here is people walkout on my act. It's so much harder to see them because of what we call the sidelines. So i brought a flash and yeah. I wonder how the walkouts are gonna work. You have to follow covid when you're leaving place have to raise your hand the and then someone comes over. Yes i'm leaving. He's an all new hampshire jackson. Anyway thanks for all the naked magician. Bring up bring juggles tonight. We're already booked. Is she okay. But depending on how your dinner goes later we might not have to make that lands.

Gill it's referred to in that episode which I watched last night as as to one of the two episodes as a trouser cannon. Kill, set right. Yeah and. Cat Brad. You complains it to your wife. At one point that you're that you're built like an Asian child. Lovely how Joely Fisher Oh? We had so much fun on that show she. She is amazing. Did you have to remember the on the show? Cal? Absolutely I remember the first show I did I was the of course the neighbor and I had like a young hot, looking wife. So you real jealous of me. Sure like you do now. Albert you're playing your usual creepy. I ordered the market. Yeah and also. Joel Well Oh Martin. Martin Yeah Martin Molo very he was. He's so terrific. We had a great time. Now I trouble getting people to watch it. I remember right before they canceled us. And we tried everything, but you gotta get people and they weren't. They weren't watching. We were getting. A call right before they counseled us up to the last time we aired. Get a call from like the head of Fox at the time and he says listen. He said you know the ratings are great. We've tried to do all we can. And I said we appreciate it. You've been very supportive. Four years almost full for he said. You know last night you. You GotTa Point Zero six in the overnight rating. Point Zero six one point zero six. I went off. That's that's rough and he goes, so we're going to have to do the inevitable he said. Is there anything? Debt you would like to try before we unfortunately have to cancel. You and I said just give us three more episodes to air at I guarantee you. I can take you two zero. He didn't get it. He was he was like well? Why would we want that? I said look any big shot can get a two three. Four. Be The only network that has a show that is literally zero. That doesn't mean anything to you at all. Needless to say, that didn't help, we were. We were cancelled the next night, but there's a lot of fun. The fascinating thing about till death brad is it was Oh, it was a different show almost every season. Yes, and in the end of the fourth season it became surreal like the old cassettes exactly. It was like anything goes. Break the fourth. All you know Raunchy jokes that I can't believe everything can think. They changed my daughter on the show three times three times, three different daughters, and that the woman who would sit there with the script and do the continuity. took her life actually after season three, she was so crazy. I mean to bring it down, but she was like. You're killing me here with the continuity. She says who which one's the daughter, now and a, but it was. It was crazy. You know we we didn't. We didn't know what we were doing, but we had fun, and you know you never know you never. She didn't real character she was. She was Jewish, because she said. Get me with the counter. Bought it convincing actor. Gilbert you a sheep fetish. You're correct. Yes, yeah, I just going to say that I saw. The wives wanted meet and I said I don't like people. I like shoot. Still deliver it unbelievably. We had a lot of friends on that to JJ, Wall. Jeff! Oil Friend Jerry Lampert. Japan and Kevin Rooney's moves on it jade the Larry Anderson. We had doborah played Sure. Attrition, so we had we had a lot of. That's a great thing when you when they let you do your own thing. You get to bring on people. You like unlike Gilbert. And I remember. There was another on this show where Joely Fisher says to you you out of me. She says you really envy him, don't you? You WanNa, be him, and and you go. No I like being able to reach for the peanut. The second episode ended with outtakes. Another thing you guys were doing and season for. There's a there's a garage sale. Martin Mull has the painting. Gilbert's character, the characters a little like Rodney's character in caddyshack. He's a vulgar rich guy. Yes, right little like out SERVIC. Read this. And then you guys, then you screw up align. I'm watching this thing and all of a sudden. You guys break character. and. It's just outtakes. US Yeah I remember. The I suppose to leaning to Martin. Mull and say so, GRANDPA. One the smile on your face and the midnight said Hi Grandpa I doubled oval laughing, and that was it for this seat Morton Mole. He could he sell just amazing. Treasurer. Jolie ever introduce you to the old man Brenham. In in in doing that series. Did you ever need any fisher? I didn't know never met him. I met the mom several times connoisseur yeah. Just just a delight justice sweeter, a larger than life character so sweet. Yes, she is a real star Jolie Jr only one time said to me. She goes, you remind me of my dad well. She said that all men she feared ask. That's audit compliment. GotTa. His. Ask did. You really say that. Do you get? Lot Kilmer, do people look at you and? I'm so sick of. You'll single my papa. My Show gentlemen show. You Go! You WanNa talk about growing up and being kind obsessed as we were with. Comics that would come out on the Carson show, sure civically rickles, staying up to see those great comics and or being obsessed with the Dean Martin, Roast which we talk about a lot here. The Dean Martin roasts. To me rickles. You know is really one of my faves. And I I because I really don't have an act. He did, but I just I. Just love the Spritz and and you know play off the crowd, and really you know kind of do. You know the insult thing. The racial thing which. May Have to come to a stop by. He's just love kind of writing. That I really didn't know what my. What I tone was for so long when I started out, you know I was very. Very pedestrian comedy. It was very hacky. It's still hockey, but the difference is. It's Never GonNa Change I'm happy know I've always felt like an old catskill guy, even when I was twenty twenty one doing my stand, and I started doing impressions and did I. You know horrible things like you know what would have bill. Cosby was a pilot. Before he was a rapist. You know. I do I really do crazy stuff like that. And then I just opening for all these acts these big acts where they never want to see the opener. I just ended up going well I. You know I mean. How much material can I do on my birth? You know being a twelve pound baby. And I just broke out of the active started just. Kind of roast in the front row, and the people that was coming in late for the opening act, and that's kind of where I found my my niece. You know and but I remember seeing rickles on Carson when? You know when I was eleven and I remember. Johnny Ed crying with laughter and I was like. How is this Guy Getting Away with you? Know Calling Ed, fat and drunk, and talking about Carson's wives I mean. This was just taboo. This was crazy and you know that I would see Carlin on there, and and you know. Rodney was a was a big influence for me early on and. And SO television with three networks. Remember Guilt, Oh yeah to stay up when it was a special night when a comic you wanted to see was coming. Who is your skill? I mean? Who who would you restart it up? Oh, God so many I mean the ones you mentioned definitely. And I remember the older comics. I loved Milton Berle. Jack Benny a Groucho sure love Groucho. Yeah it was. It was a different era. and. Lot of comics helped each other. You know it was. It was a different thing. They would help each other out and that's. Without sounding, Corny, I always wanted to have my own club, because I started in that town and I've been working there for over thirty years and. People were really really good to me and they really helped me out even at times when I maybe didn't deserve it and. I, just never forgot that. It's great to find amazing talent on the road. Who can't get on a lot of these shows? You know back in the day if you killed on the tonight show. You had a pilot deal the next not that I ever killed them that tonight. Joke. I never did. They were all quite mediocre. Honestly, but I remember back in the day, or when ray killed on Letterman sure had the pilot the next week. Nowadays it just it seems even though there's so many more outlets. It seems ten times harder for young comics to to really score. Just like I always say like years ago. As if you're an actor. A saw the back of your head in a crowd scene for two seconds. Next Day? Everyone wanted your autograph you now. You could suit now you. Porno. Advocacy the back of your head and what you're I I don't know. But You disappear now. You too many Dr in five thousand TV shows. And people say sewing you still working too many shows. That's it. It's too many shows the era of the bradstock about Gilbert. We mentioned this on the show didn't Gabe Kaplan a Sitcom just from from that bit that he used. That's Qatar was in his act. Yeah! The Sullivan Correct Ed Sullivan, and then that's you know that was it, but like you said frank, there were three networks, and and that was you know that was a dumb as a way to go staying up to see Rodney or rick off, you remember remember the bit with wrinkles in the Geisha, girls and the TUB's. Good Carson throat with wrestling each other in the in the hot tubs. They. Time he broke his cigarette lighter and Johnny takes the camera crew to go. Find shooting CPO sharking. Event Television with the. It was like two shows at night I stand up, and then the panel was even funnier than the stand up. That's right, and the relented minute was a ninety minute show Carson. That Allah have what did you love about those roasts? Because we? We love him, too. We have a great affection for them to. Adult you look at them again and you see how how they're assembled, yes. Yeah! It was great it was. It was like the biggest stars Dr we what they usually do sell. It's like it was like a craze crazily a crazy bachelor party that you got to watch of these huge icons I mean you know when they when they roasted like John. Wayne or or fear I just watched the Sami Roast the other night, and that it was it was it was just great. It was just at, but it was. You felt that Camaraderie. Felt that there is a closeness I think that's why the friars. Club really never took off in our era the way they wanted it to in New York, and especially La, but. It was just some of my favorite stuff because. I, think people love it when when someone gets roasted whether they're in the front row whether they're on TV because. It evens out the plane field of life where we always feel. Where not as good we're not ital- were not as successful and regular people feel that in their own life and in their own works, so when you're taking a shot at an icon or a guy in the row in the front row with a gorgeous chick and a Beautiful Watch, and your your your devouring him. There's there's something wonderful about it because it just puts everyone in a vulnerable position and I, also when I would watch stuff like that. Well are also a major Jerry Lewis Fan sure. Did you ever meet him I? Yeah? I, can I love being able to use the classic line well. He was always nice to me. Right Right uh-huh. Good. Ensuring respect you. Yeah he I remember sitting outside. The Friars Club when they were putting a plaque of him on, and I wound up sitting next to jury, and while he would, he was the Jerry you want him to be. You know silly and yelling and heckling people and every time we'd make some dopey joke. He He'd laugh at his own joke, and then turned to me and squeeze my arm. Like like to pull me into it and I thought. that. Yeah, that yeah exactly and. That's an order. Yeah, that's like getting an award, you bet. I remember one of the things. We were talking about how the fries, although Shiro's were put together their member meeting Milton Berle, and him, saying that at those things would go okay, melty I heard something really shocking. All right and they point the camera and my okay now you. This is making you angry. Really Yeah, and he they. Jury Actions Oh. You mean they'd get the pickup shots after the fat, you could tell somebody's pounding the table. Or shaking their fists, Ruth buzzes hitting Orson Welles with pure so so I guess only had two cameras. Yeah, probably yeah. Right. Wow, that's again. If you go back and you watch him even if you watch the late night promos for the for the DVD the Dean Martin roasts, you can see how how clumsily there assembled and. Wipe it matter. So great sold comics. I thought. I. This is what I want. Show business, be yes. Yes, that's exactly exactly right, and that's how I felt, but it's it's not. It's really really not. Did you interact with Jerry Brad I met Jerry once when I was opening for Sammy Davis. Sammy ended up doing like five nights at bally's with Jerry Lewis, so I went in I saw this show and it was. To me performer wise, there was no one likes Sammy Davis Junior I mean you know what's funny is I grew up listening to that? I grew up records in my house where where the weren't being thrown were. Sammy Davis and Tony Bet it, and Sinatra so even though it was a little before my time, I just had such a fondness for that music and I still do and. The for Sammy. In these guys, it was such an honor, but what was so funny is. When they were doing the GIG, they were co headlining bally's Jerry would come out. He would do thirty minutes Sammy would come out. He would do forty, and then they would come out together the end for a ten minute encore and God bless Jerry. He couldn't let Sammy have his total forty minutes. He's doing. He was doing. His big thing back then. They were really going to get Sammy Davis Junior. They wanted him to star in Phantom of the opera while and he was what he got sick, he was because I was on the road with at the time. They were actually negotia negotiating. It was huge on Broadway and he was going to open. In London in Phantom so when he does Phantom God bless him with this face. I. Don't need the mask. got. To show Lerma hear. Gossip? Limited seeing when he would soon Christine. And you edit. Was the pin spot on Sammy and he was. And he was supposed to play a deformed God. Bless him. Who the Phantom. So he's GonNa. Where nicely! And he's doing the thing and in the background is Jerry Lewis going back and forth on a bicycle. Every every two minutes the first. One. The first night. You know Sammy was A. Kinda. Let me go and you know doing. This guy type of thing and by the second night. You could see that it was you know it was his his encore number I. mean you know Jerry was coming back anyway? It wasn't like they're working to see. That was that was Jerry and Sami took it like a real trooper, but Sort of typical cherry. Yeah. What about greatest showbiz stories at I I love this and I know it may be in the book, but no one read it so this'll be fresh. A when we when when you tour with Sammy, he would never fly, so you had to go on one of his to tour buses and they were custom-made where everything was to his scale. Okay, and he would cook creole food. On a little hot plate in the frigging bus, you know you're your. During the summer tours remember the tense Gilbert. We would do the tense. Yeah Keast, the melody. So we would, we would drive on the bus and he wouldn't let the air conditioner on because he would say that chops. For the. And can't have the AC acid if you don't like if you don't like my best if it's too hot. On, the band bus was fucking Sandy I wasn't GonNa go low on the band bus. I'm fifteen and among the thing, and he's making the creel with. It's one hundred degrees so He used to love orange crush and strawberry crush it. It's it's big with the brothers. With a car they love him. Stopping at the gas station next gas injury, getting a Serta to stop at a gas station in cohasset Massachusetts. The bus opens up Sammy Davis gets off and you know he would dress during the day with all the stuff on, so he gets off the Buzzer people that gas station are freaking and we're standing in line. It's the bandits May to. At the at the vending machine. Tick tick at a soda and. He was always gracious. Everyone would go before him and I was so nervous. I was letting everyone go before me because I was so brand new right I just so it's at the end of the line, and it's me and Sammy's behind me, and it was in the days where you had to have coins for Rasa and I don't have any coins and I turned around and I go. Mr Davis. Could you change a twenty? And he looks at me. He Goes Babe. A twenty is change. Wow twenty years change. That's a great job lovers. Was the kindest man. Tell us. That holds all of stories. How you? You had that job opening for Frank Sinatra. Well, that was in the intro where he pissed off. You're pissed off, Jili. Yeah Yeah, now, I. They was like Sinatra used to mispronounce your name. Yeah well. I open for him when he was really in the twilight of his. From, the last two years was alive. Okay, so how the memory wasn't incredible. Any called me Greg Barrett. Okay instead of Brad Garret. You know I wasn't in show business long, but there was. There's an old adage. You don't correct. Sinatra right so for the first two weeks. I'm taking a bow to another fucking name. Like? His Gentleman Greg Barrett. Taking about and. Go up stage and I go. Julia Rosa was in the wings. Cycle is to result. Can I ask you so I said. you know Mr Sinatra is is pronouncing. You Know My name incorrectly and he looks at me goes. You want Gig. Okay I. Don't having a wonderful time because have been a friend of his forty two years half the time. We don't know who the fuck I am. Say. Okay. But then the other night. About a week later I'm. Opening for him was was a horror show because. It was two hundred dollars ticket back in the eighties, and that was a luck, and no one wants to see the opening act and I'm in Atlantic City and I'm just I'm dying I. Mean I'm just eating it and. Jili would say now remember with frank wants to go on. He'll tug on the court. You never knew if you were doing twenty. If you were doing ten, he would tug on the cord and you had to wrap it up. So I'm bombing for about ten minutes and people are just going Frank Quest Frank. You know during my entire set last Friday. And I feel a tug on the cord and I'm like Oh my God out of all the nights. You WanNa get on early. I'm going to have to so. I say in the Sarko stick way kind of you know how we do jokes for ourselves considered team. Who did the King of that? I I say the king of that. Yeah, so so say you've all been great stick around for Frank. Okay. and. They didn't get. At I? Get off stage at as I passed frank in the wings I. Hear Him say to Jili find out what that means. Okay. By dressing room and there's a there's a knock on the door and it's Jili and one of his big people. Hank. You know who was who made me look petite. That's outbreak this other guy. Julie Goes. Frank wants to know what does it mean? Stick around for Frank? And I said well, it was it was obviously a joke, and he goes, but the here to see Frank. I said well. That's that's. Their lies lives joke. I said. I was bombing so when I said stick around for Frank I was making fun of by self. Because why wouldn't they stick around for so I'm explaining it glazed. Julie Jilin looks at the bodyguard next he goes might be. What did you hear and Mike? He goes well. I heard him say stick at the front. His runaway going look, there's not a man alive. Who say stick it. Especially, on a microphone, right in Atlantic, city. You know and they were like what we don't get the joke. And then all of a sudden. I was opening for Liza. That was my PA Andriessen. Address was back Yada, so we just driessen was the guy of course. You know you would fill in. St will take time, but it was a time of my life. You know there's nothing like it. To things with that story your your if. Your mom always offended that you were bowing to the just. What did she tell you she comes to be? She goes. I don't understand. Why you, bowing to someone else's name. Good aimless. Bread. Greg. Schmuck you're thanking, them. I said mom. It's it's Frank Sinatra. The she goes sitting down. I'm going to sit franken certain down and introduce yourself frank. Hi Brad. Many many introduces you. Of course the woman is married six times. Them but I remember I mean as joke to crew. They had a shirt on one-sided, said stick around for frank at the other side, it said Greg Barrett and that was our tour gifts. But, what happened with Liza to that use that? She tears I made a liberace joke. It was like the first night. I was it was it was about, and it was a Hacky joke. Is something that we were in Vegas at I go? If you go to liberace museum, just just don't sit down anyway. It was ridiculous, not a great joke ABC. She comes back stage. Crime cried. She goes. Why would you make a joke about about? Liberace and I really thought at this point that they're setting me up to you know. Who I I! It was just a joke didn't mean anything she will you know he's my godfather and I went. LIBERACE's Your Godfather. They said Gut. Little little different than the movie. He was you know so I've never? been able to make a great living. Gill saying what you want. I'm still trying to figure out how to do that. Although I've lost. My job say what they want to. But beautifully but beautiful young. Goes Down in flames. That when you were on that infamous roast. Yes, what are the most famous roasts you have were on with that line after nine eleven right? Yeah? How did you feel before you did it? and. Did you know it was going to get that? And how much did you really care? Eight was funny. It's like I wanted to be the first one to address the elephant in the room. Because the the roast you hefner was in new. York and it was like a couple of days after Sept-. Sure eleven two days. Okay, so was still smoking. Yeah, yeah, they're black clouds and I remember saying. I have to leave early tonight. I have to catch a flight to allay unfortunately I couldn't get a direct flight. We have to make a stop at the Empire State Building. And they. Wing, in his sing and I thought at that point well I lost them short just I could, and then go into the aristocrats joke and they were screaming. They were howling, so showed the one right after the other. Yes. Wow what a recovery, so nhl they they needed to laugh at that point Yup Yup. That's a great now. You know there's always rumors about stuff. How much flack did you really get because I think most of the comics were probably going so brilliant bold. You're broke the ice away, too. I mean what was really because I. Know Deep Down. You're a sensitive wonderful man. What was your? What was your takeaway from it? Yeah I felt there. The comics totally got me and it was so different like after the September eleven joke I lost them as much as anyone could lose an audience, and then they came back Gleich, screaming and howling and pounding their chairs. Wow I. Remember after I, said the line. I somebody yell too soon. And I thought it meant I didn't take a long enough post between the setup and punch line. Did you say? Out. So Great. Speaking arrose I would direct people and their online to the Joan rivers roast with you, two guys. And and Gilbert's Gilbert's bid about you being fucked by a Leprechaun. Great, would you?

Believable yeah, she studied with Great Guitar Players Ashes wait. Remember I used to run into her. When I was doing Hollywood squares, Yucky had. Hysterical. Those refunding those days when? Henry Winkler was a producer. Whoopie was center-right. Yeah I was so funny because I grew up watching Hollywood squares thinking You know it's fun, but it's the bottom of someone's Korea. And then when I started doing it I thought this is fun. I Love was fun at. People, you know that never knew the show got to see the it was fun. They should bring back at are rated version for likes cable off. That's a great night. That's a great idea yet. Oh, and just do it. Do it like that. Won't be what be told me she was trying to recreate that period. She was trying to recreate the the days that you. Miss Gilbert that you reminisce about where people smoked cigarettes and drank on the air. SHOWBIZ! Which which reminds me this is a great segue 'cause. One of those guys that would have a cigarette in one hand the jury in the other which Jackie gleason. The magazine show from Sammy. Now you, you! Did you terrific job as? It's an. Eight, foot CECCHI gleason. Your! Radios out the ray sought we went to the premier, and he said well you just did it Jackie the NBA years. After. It was crazy. 'cause you know Jackie was like five ten. They had a build up the furniture they had to make things look larger. Increase the doorway in the old set. We had an amazing director how he joins directed it and the people in the cast how to wear boots and lifts so I didn't tell them because the other thing, it was unbelievable. It looks like. When they would come back wide and show. Everyone's feet is a joke. It looks like we're all leaving a kiss concert. You know we have these huge boots. Everyone war that had the laces but I knew how Basta that gleason how brilliant he was when he would go off on Alice. Never heard her, you knew he was just a big baby, having a Tantrum, and that was his brilliance, and I knew that if I- towered over. I would become a bully at it. It would look intimidating as opposed to vulnerable. So when I sat down with them, I was like. How can you help me set design? Wise because they didn't want me to to to gleason day it CBS bio pic back in the day when they used to do movie the weeks and and they went out to everybody, and I was on Raymond at the time. And I said you know I'd love to called less mood this because. because. They wouldn't let me audition and I called them up and I said Mr Buddhism name is Brad Garret I'm on Raymond Psychos, you know. Raymond was still still we were like in the middle of where we were. And I said I'd I'd love to be able to read you know for the gleason movie that you guys are doing. And he said well. Who Do you WANNA play? And I said well I was hoping I'd get. Read for trixie. Half I thought he was joking right and again dead silence and he goes well. We're out to John. Goodman or Oliver Platt, to play to play gleason it I said well. They're brilliant and thanks for taking my call, so those guys turned it down and then it went to mark addy who was? A funny comedian he was British, but he really had the look, and he had the big blue eyes, and he was kind of a bigger guy and the right height and. But he was British and he had trouble losing the accent. And they call me at the. They had no one at the last minute they said. Get Montreal if you WANNA do this in the shooting two days. So the script was. You can only do so much on network as opposed to I always, said God if it was only on cable or something where we can get away with more, but what the script was. It was really just a send up to the honeymooners it was. It was more of an impression of gleason than really what he went through so I hired. A buddy of mine is a great writer named Dave boom and I said. Yeah, he will sell writer on Hollywood. We all know Dave Yeah I love gave, and and he loved that old. Yeah, he loves that time of you know that old that old Hollywood and that Kasich to. And I said you know it's really like. A characterization as opposed to you know this guy was was brilliant, but he was a womanizer, and he was an alcoholic, and he had a lot of demons, and we're not seeing any of this. and. They were so under the gun in behind schedule. They weren't looking at the dailies as much as we were worried, they would, so we just shot most of the stuff the way we wanted to and went off script as much as we could. While staying within practice and standards, of course so it it became a little bit of an anomaly as far as a movie you know for the network, and and the people very kind about I really loved it I. Mean I. Had the time of my life. It was something I dreamed of plane. And and you know didn't think I'd be able to, but but an intro. Lucky! I was GONNA. Say in true and true gleason style you through the script out the window. Yeah! Exactly what's interesting there too is like. Goalie sin now what people get embarrassed about and when they did the long awaited. The entertainer honeymooners. They didn't use salon at all, and that was him going. You know praying to the Moon alicja. Funny thing is when you watch the honeymooners. What people miss the point? It's like he would threaten her, but you knew Alice had the upper hand exactly he had the upper hand, and every scheme that he ever came up with was to better her life. And that was the key everything he tried everything he went after even when she said it's not gonNA. Work, Jackie, and he would go get. Avenue whatever whatever it was all to give her that bigger apartment that mink coat that new car, so he was brilliant in being able to play that and the writers. The writers were amazing. I talked to the only living writer I shot this in two thousand. Can't believe it's that long ago, but there was only one living honeymooners writer. and. I go? What was it like? He said I wish I had a dollar for every time I got hit in the face with the script and I go really he goes. We were not treated well, but no one could make our words sing like that man. said it to this day. You I think about how lucky I was, but. Your average joke, he would turn into gold. He just had that, so he said it was kind of were taking it because no one wanted to work for anybody else that fifty two because he was the king. there. There are stories. Of course we've talked about them on this show Gilbert of him throwing writers paychecks in the swimming pool. You've heard these shrimp swim checks. I wanted to just interview his daughters and his wife, who was alive at the time his last wife and They would have nothing to do with the filming. They didn't want you know that they did not want to be involved. And it really hurt my feelings because I was like Gosh. I WANNA. I WANNA give it some credit. I wanted to do it right, can you? Let's talk about the good stuff and they were like. No, there's nothing to discuss. And after came out the they came, she came to visit me the wife and and we had a quick little. Hello to sit down, and it was really really wonderful, but you could tell there was a lot of pain there you know i. of course there's pain. You know I've noticed. We all got paid I heard a story like with his composer. yeah. Oh Sammy Spirit Sammy Spear Yeah and Good for well. I think he one time said to him. As Sammy go work on the music. It's never been any good. I do that well, you know. He was such an incredible composer. gleason. Yeah I was listening to one of his. Somebody gave me the other day and these orchestrations. She that was his thing. He wanted to be a musician and he has a few hours out. You know that are like candlelight, music and cheesy and fun. But you listen to him and you go. Wow, this is this is so music, so he really Guy with a lot of talents and a very good dramatic actor, really good, really good. Yeah, we've talked about soldier in the rain and. Career and of course the Hustler, the Hustler so brilliant and I loved what he did the last thing he did with Tom Hanks to me Oh. Yeah Yeah. Yeah, what a! What a genius! You Talk to Don Reo for him, did he? Did He tell you? The stories of of went? Don Don was running to tell death we had here. Really. He talked about it. He wrote for the Stockton. He wrote for the Miami show he wrote for the hero. I spent a year with done. No crime stand corrected. It wasn't the Miami show was those specials that they brought back in the seventies where they broke. Buddy Motors back, yeah. Okay really and Gleeson Gleeson Made Don and his writing partner, sitting Simens Room. It's got stories he was. Really yeah he must've writers. Till the gave them a he gave them a little love seat and a TV monitor that was in a men's room. He. was abusing writers to the end. You think you would know there's nothing more important. It's a kind of. An unhappy life I mean in many ways certainly. Hood hunting gleason is another case. Of. Their spin, gleason gene, wilder and Jan Murray, that I heard stories about their mothers died when they were young, and they would go home. They see a movie or whatever and they go home. ACT IT out and entertain their mothers. That was the first audience. I used to do that, but My mom would walk. Through my jokes that she'd say I saw it with the original cast. How. You and Dave captured a lot of things accurately in the movie, though the part where his father removed himself from the family photo albums. Yeah, was that was factual? That was yeah. I mean there were there were there were traumatic things. Made him the way and you got the. You got the Brooklyn accent down so well. You know I worked with a great vocal coach Larry Moss at the time and. You know everyone thinks from the east, but I was born and raised in Los Angeles so, but my dad was from the Bronx I felt well. That's easy to do. And and I remembered the dialogue coach, and he knew it was a huge police fan, and I did a few lines from the script and he goes. No, that's the Bronx and I was like it's New York. He goes. No, no notes on eastern Brooklyn. And I had a relearn all the vows, and all the things all over again, and it was really it was really excited. I never poured myself into so much research. The good thing about it because gleason was on CBS is I was allowed into. All of the archives is able to see things that no one saw out takes. They didn't want anyone to see. Interviews didn't go well. You know my favorite one that everyone saw was the sixty minute interview when he was. You know long in the tooth in the seventies and ill, and that's how we opened the movie. We need with his last interview on as one of my favorite parts. Being able to portray him. There's a there's a great story that I found in my in doing research for this and wind, going back and watching the the Jackie movie, which is very good. You got nominated for an emmy. By the way we should point out your performance is wonderful. Paul Lynde was getting an entertainer of the year award at the Emmys, you know the story. No, Jackie was hosting the show and Paul Lynde was presented with the entertainer of the year award, and he said I can't take this award. I'm standing next to the funniest man in history and he handed the award Jackie. Is that right? Your story and gleason never saw it coming. gleason take it I don't know I. Don't know I have to do a little deeper research, but how? To Me Oh I love Poland. He's. He's come up here a few times. She really yeah. He's guys of subject. He's still around. No, he's topic.

About what what Jackie thought of Carson basically kind of lifting Reggie? To do art fern. Yeah, he wasn't subtle. No, it wasn't. It was a lift.

Gilbert Cell Brad. What you what you found out about bill when you did the show and what explained his occasional absences very very weird I was talking to the riders, and they Ha. They said in his schedule. Sprinted very neatly in his schedule, they would be an hour set aside to teach comedy to Asian models. This is for. One. They told me they would. Going? That's why you see so many funny. Asian models nowadays sure I'd be just a bottle or Asian alone. Working with. Force. Long, but you're them together. Would you do when your whole top Ramen, don't. System. In the top row. The best impression of old cosby that I've heard of yes pre pre raping. I. Know I meant I meant like sixty and older cosby. Kids. Cosby impressions are like Yo- young cosby. Old. I Still Lucy Liu onstage and she's gone. He's funny. Ask. We're going to send this episode to bill in the joint. Don't you? Why. We will return to Gilbert Godfried gymnasium colossal podcast after this. Can I ask you a couple of questions from listeners Brad you're. This is from LEX PASARELL WHO's a friend of ours who is a director, retired director as direct golden girls and such. Does Brag by chance. Remember what he gave out as crew gifts for the pilot of short lived, Nebraska set series first impressions. I'll tell you it's interesting because we had Terry Hughes directed that pilot and he was the big director on Golden Girls, one of the nicest guys to this day that I ever worked with, and it was my first show, and I wasn't very good, and he really helped me. I don't remember. What was the crew gift? All I could think of his probably an apology note. Ask. First of all they took me they saw me do stand up his. We're GONNA ride. Show around you your guy in Nebraska. To God I said I said, let me guess I. Run a I run a temple in Nebraska. and. There's a cross burning and I try to figure. I said. Why don't you make me from Miami or from Brooklyn now? The show is written about a guy. Nebraska is a dyed my hair. They put me in a plaid shirt and penny loafers. I looked like Ellen DeGeneres. It was it was unbelievable I? Have a white, but they could lose the New York vibe. I said. I literally did gave me a daughter who is blonde and blue-eyed, so it looked like. I kidnapped. Brought her home to live with me. I'm should have just put skipped Stevenson it. Would have been great. Sounds. Like somebody looks like that. What were the gifts gotta go ahead? I'll have to call ask him. He he he he was obviously he was obviously there or use a member of the Penguin Pajamas okay. Penguin thing back then quick one from Luke Simon I had the pleasure of seeing Brad in the odd couple with brought with Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane any memories. An incredible first of all the sheriff stage with Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick the toasts Broadway was pretty pretty amazing. I learned a lot from Nathan Lane. He's. He's become a wonderful well. I. Consider him a friend with you know. Every time I call He. Had And I just stage is a different thing, but I think for a comic to play especially on Broadway. There's nothing more exciting because you have that live audience, every night and boy talk about nights at the same joke will land. The same joke will die the next. Lichen are standup. I think it's a closest. Gift for for a standup if you can cross that bridge and and do something in in stage because it's. The biggest high, but had a ball. You marry the COP. Was Murray, the COP and I I was under steady for Nathan and I go three months, and he was never sick as Nathan never got sick, and I got on the plane I'm on my way home I land. They go Nathan has laryngitis. Can you come back for two shows? Get on a plane and I played Oscar. For a couple nights. And literally ship myself. Because you know you're practicing that role, you'll rehearse once a week when you're a standing, but it was such an amazing role in to follow Nathan's. Footsteps is nothing you really dream about when he's been doing three months before, but it turned out okay. I had a ball. That's a show that's very near, and dear to Gilbert's heart and mind we would have. We would have loved to senior in that Thank you Gilbert you. You would be an incredible Felix. How about? A mazing, thank you. Amazing you get you get a Jackie Vert in the playoffs. Off I would they could CASS Gilbert Vinnie. Great Vinny only be a great vinny. Yeah, yeah, that's a good show. It's amazing the writing how it's still it's still stands up. I mean it's older jokes, but they're. They're all so good. You know there are so many. He was such a writer. Neil Simon credible you know. The TV series is fifty years old this year. No, yeah. T! Seventy rights are the other. Tries to crazy and Franken I've discussed this and that's that both the movie and TV series. Nobody is alive from it. You gotta go deep. There's there's one pigeon sister. I think I'm pitching? Sister is alive, and if you WANNA, go as I said a couple of episodes to Elinor Donahue who played Felix's girlfriend? Miriam okay. She's around. For not taking our calls. The first celebrity I ever met with Jack Klugman. Went to summer camp with I went to summer camp with his son, and he was living at the outrigger apartments in Malibu and one day I didn't know it was dad. Was He goes? You want to go to the beach and. We didn't do sleep over camp because you know Jews patterns. Over? Can't sleep. That's how you know you go to sleep over camp. Next thing you know you're gonNA, musical. Hey you want to go to the beach and we go by DAD's apartment I. Walk in there and you know. I was eleven, so the odd couple was on. Seventy one right? In there, and there's Jack Klugman in front of the TV yelling during a horse race. He was sweating out a horse race from Santa Anita he had it on closed circuit and I just then. I never forgot how Klugman because how you could've beat, you're going to be. One of those things I was just like. Wow, Adam Goldman right. How did you know that? Yeah, well, that's why. Do. You know him I don't know him, but what happens when he's around. Club. Yes, two sons, the younger one yeah. We're just right this. Where did you get Frank? You'll. Get this. God, bless your. We're we're. We're trying to get a Chris Lemmon, and and Charlie Matthau to come on here and talk and talk about their DADS. Won't that be a wonderful episode? WOULD THAT BE AMAZING? Yeah, we're almost close to close a now with that being incredible, but let's talk to you about a couple of dramatic roles and I have to say your range and the work that you did in Fargo. As as as the mobster Joe Getting the name Right Joe Bola. Job Bulow you'll Bela you're absolutely terrifying, and it's hard for somebody who is recognizable as you and is known as you are. At and is known for being a comedian as you are to disappear into a role like that and to me disappeared into it instantly I find dry, love drama. To be candid. Started really a people would come. See my act and they would go try drama. That's only a joke. I wanted a cousy director say. They came to see by act when I was starting out. She goes. You know you're like a big intimidate tried draw. It was after it was active. She saw my set at the Ice House. and. That's what I started drinking heavily for about twenty years. It was after that meeting. You're so I love drama I I. I love it. You know you had ice water in your veins that that that character just tariff tariff. I know you a little bit. And I still was frightened by by by this by this portrayal and you you did not. Do you famously said that you did not do your own stunts? Really again I'm so uncoordinated. Stuff to do. So uncoordinated to the point where they were like the director said. They said. Can you run for any amount of distance and I went? You know I got a bad back and it never I've never been a great runner, and they said okay all right well. We're we're shooting in the snow tomorrow and I need you to run and I was like well. How far? The guy goes a quarter mile. I don't know I went a quarter mile. He says what we're shooting it on the crane. So as you're running in the smell, the camera comes up. And that's how the and I said I said first of all I I gotTa Bugging Because you have a what I said I got. He goes, he goes. My grandmother had one of those. I said there you go. What kind of a runner where she? And I shot. He says well. You know we'll make it work this Hollywood. He says we'll make it work the next day. I'm supposed to run with a rifle. He says we're going to follow you. Win a drone because the crane never showed up because it couldn't get through the snow. said. No problem I didn't know from a drone. It was a few years ago. He said the drone is gonNA. Follow you as you're reading. So he start as fast as you can, and when you're winded, just walk. I run about twelve feet. And I can't feel my left arm. fucking. START TOO FAST I. Cut He goes the drone was in front of you. Slow the drone down because the drone. We have it on the slowest speed. Have to be, he goes. Are you running this faustus? High said I swear to you. Did you ever play ball? said no I never played. I said if I played ball, would I be running into snow in Fargo? I play ball cap. Higher Stuntman. To Jog alaria. And comes off the plane. He looked at me. He goes. I'll tell you a stuntman for thirty one years last week I was jumping out of a plane the other day I went through a window. Thanks to you I only got a job. I'm GonNa tell our listeners to watch all three seasons of Fargo, but you're in season two and no, no, no a Hawley is pretty brilliant. He is showing. Writer directors brilliant and they saw season one. You said yourself this. Is GonNA BE? How's he going to top that? He's amazing and and and hiring comedians in dramatic roles like Chris Rock is in the new season. I can't wait to see you. And you and he gave a shot. He gave me shot I mean I had read for it. My agent got me in there and he was open minded. Like well I know him from Raymond, but he was open. Minded and Noah gave me a shot and. Grateful for that you were. You were really terrific. And speaking, running an our listeners know where I'm going with this one. Gill, yeah, Oh God! I'm GonNa make you tell Brad. The David Burke Yeah Yeah. 'CAUSE! 'CAUSE WANNA see Brad's face as he reacts to it I doing a show that was directed by David Steinberg I think it was mad about you. Yes, yes, he directed me up over that and. And there was one scene where ahead of saline and then run off stage so I save the line and run off. Stage and David Very uncomfortably says I'm Gilbert couldn't run a little faster. And I said you want me to run faster, and he goes Nunu, no really faster, but deleted more gracefully, and and I said gracefully. Nut So choppy the, and then he finally puts his head down and size and goes. Can, you run this Jewish. I! So great I never got one of my favorites. Gem We had him. Here is a jet. You have answered a million questions about Raymond and we won't ask you we. Won't we've had phil here twice. And we? We love him. We just we want to ask you. Say a couple of words about the late. Great Peter Boyle and the Light Green Fred Willard. These you know. Never forget when I got the job. For Raymond and knowing that. Peter Boyle was GonNa play our dad, and what fans were by that took me to see. My father took me to see young Frankenstein when I was twelve, and I never saw my dad laugh harder in his life. As is that memory never left me the joy he had from Mel Brooks and blazing saddles, and all that great sub, so when we knew Peter, Boyle was aboard. We were so excited and Ray looks to me. He goes out. Some things are meant to be. Okay, it's all right. Thank you, very. No you don't get it. You said Your father is young. Frankenstein and you look quite Frankenstein. Getting about relationship. Peter. Heater Peter could have been anything further obviously from his character, sure so incredibly, politically involved very very bright smart. John Lennon's best friend. John John Lennon's best friend who was his best man at his wedding and Did Peter Talk about the flatulence. Talk about no probably, wouldn't you how? About the flag. With Peter Lee stylized. Okay. It's a little long winded, but you'll fix it. So to speak. Exactly, but. You? Early in year one. because. The show was the whole family was always on the set most of the time together. That's what the show was. About Episode Tanner Eleven. We all notice in our own way that there's this. Someone's let it go on the set. With this when this happens mysteriously. Always think it's the big person. because. You know my whole life. If someone farts at a party I get distinct. Figure It's the biggest guy he probably has. The same size colon we do. I'm sure he can't control it. fucking circus boy right. So, this is A. Have I have factory issue. I have a thing was smells. Don't do well I. Don't do I have I over Cologne I over wash razor Germaphobe so he's always with the parallel. By about episode twelve were were in a camera blocking day, and it smells like. Something is dot by the fuck it. Feels like it's Di was resurrected and it came back to die again. He looks at me on goes. You. Just like that. For Weeks I said. Let let me be honest with the. If it was me, I would have taken my own life. It's not you right? He Goes Moorer. United Stars. I've done I don't know he goes. No it's Patty Sheehan Republican. He goes probably not allowed for.

How bad is your ass problem that you know you have to win the changle? I'll never. We were now. You would think you would think okay. Good your one. Greatest. The cats out of the bag. It's going to stop. Now I. I I didn't stop now he was. We knew who it was and we just you know because Peter Goes It's been an issue avenues issue for a long time. Yeah so, that was under Boyle's I'm I'm weeping. Yeah. While he was a prince. He was a prince, a smelly. But a prince I think Phil did tell us that he turned down the Popeye Doyle role in insured ranch connection we didn't want to. You didn't want bring that up. Yeah, yeah, it was right after he did. The movie Joe Riot Little Independent. He was on a huge role. And Apart Lisa was considered for by the way that that's exactly right. Yeah, the, thank you know your history plan. We've talked about it, not your also I believe so. Well he was playing. He was playing those those parts at that point. Tony Romm. was after the Manchurian candidate or before well French connection would be seventy one and the Manchurian candidate was in the sixties so. Yeah so after and just tell us a couple of words about a giant that we lost in that your friend star Fred Willard Yeah, he was just you. The magic about Fred is kind of the magic about mark. Mall, that's maybe why they were perfect. Improv partners is Just made everything better. every joke his delivery. His is dryness. E E You know He. He had a way of play the dumb guy without playing the dumb guy he. He did it so subtly. You know it's like what you play. Dumb guys. Okay, everybody gets it. He was when he played his character. He was the only one in the room. Dead. Thought he was brilliant. As. That dumb guy! Wow! He thought he was above everyone as that character. So that's what made it. You know what I call a comedy at two for you know you give a guy line and gets to laps out of it. Did delivery was just was just you know the the best end you couldn't find a Kinda guy and it was. It was a real loss, but you know what we were so lucky. We get to do what we love. Everyone in this podcast is doing what we dream of what we loved and you take a lot of hits in the business, but we have to remember you're gonNA walk by million people. In Your Life and very few get to do what they love and you can tell with Red Willard that. Never got to him that he was grateful. Everyday great scene stealer what you wrote. What you what you tweeted about him was moving, said it was an honor to share the stage with them I. It was it was and I mean. It was really hard sometimes not to go up and laugh in front of people you know. y'All must prayed. You didn't have a scene with Willard or Chris Elliott. Because Chris Elliott I. Just had the hardest time keeping together in the scene with them because he he just brought. You know he had a toolbox of stuff. And Fred to to you know look at those genes for crew for Chris.

Talking "Everybody Loves Raymond" and More with BRAD GARRETT

"You may know him best. As Big Brother Robert, barone on everybody loves Raymond, but he's also one of the most popular and familiar voices in many of your favorite animated classics on the big and small screens. He is Brad Garret I'm Jerry Strauss. And this is the laugh track. Do you need your weekly comedy fix? Relaxed while we visit the Sitcoms, you love the jokes you remember the characters you will never forget and the stars that bring them to you. Sit Back. It's the laugh track with Jerry strong. Hello. Welcome the laugh track with Jerry Strauss he is I I am him and you're here and we're thankful for. Thank you so much for joining us again this week. We've got a really good call. LASSIC interview this time out what I mean by classic. This is a conversation from a few years ago. That I had with in my opinion, one of the greats of our era in TV comedy from animated stuff to sitcoms stand up comedy. He made his star turn. I, guess you could say as part of that old competition show star search back in the eighties, and he just never really looked back always a part of our lives, and our TV, consumption and our laughter Brad Garret. Is with us this week again. This is from a few years ago and this goes back to one of our earlier episodes where I have the opportunity to speak to Jason Alexander from Seinfeld, I was for a great magazine I write for called age magazine. You can find them at edge MAG online. Dot, com, and I did a big feature cover story on Jason at that time, and we said you know what this was such a great conversation. If everyone agrees and Jason was cool with it. Everyone was cool with it. Let's bring that audio right here to laugh. Track will were doing it again, and we're doing it with a classic as I said from a few years ago, I did for that same magazine for edge with Brad Garret and Such a great conversation, such a cool history and a great resume that this man has and It was great to learn all about it, so we're going to revisit that conversation. Lots of great insights on everybody loves Raymond even into his more recent show, single parents that went for a couple of years much more recently and I'll other aspects of his amazing career as well so without further ado. It's Brad Garret right here on the laugh track. Would it is still living at home Jerry. Oh, I wish I could be a lot less stressful. Wouldn't it though? So, We're just going to be going to be all over the place. Thank you for doing this by the way Thank you. Guy You went to Ucla and from what I read. You didn't stay very long. Before dropping out, yes, we. Did you know ahead of time that you were short lived for that direction, or was it something spontaneous? No it was really pretty spontaneous. I got to college and I was like man. I'm I'm way over my head. And, it's something I always wanted to do, and you know. I got accepted into ucla either department outside of high school. I was like man. This is great and I. started doing stand up at the same time and I was doing by night going on that you know eleven twelve at night on open mic nights and just home all odd hours, and then driving a ucla and i. just was I. I don't. No Way I was GONNA. and. It's probably one of my few regrets I wish I I wish. I stayed in college, but I was like. I'm ready for this. Will you bring up something interesting because you hear so many stories about people starting out on the standup scene on the east coast. New York etc like you. Don't hear as much about really starting a launching a comedy career on the West Coast. How was it different from your experience? What was the vibe like out there versus what was going on New York? It was it was really very much the same because I went to New York when I was like eighteen and I worked some open. MIC nights there you know the bottom line is at the click. Click on the east coast. Click on the west coast and they were both very very competitive. If you were in New, York I, you know you had to make yourself known, and they'll lay and vice versa, but I really was never I really never hung out I really. You know I started around the same time as you know Seinfeld. Miller! Kevin Nealon and all these copies but I I really never hung with the I got to know them later. It was a huge fan of all. I I was never like in that group. You know we kind of kind of a loner. You know, but it was very much the same type of vibe. I La was a little, maybe more ahead. Of York as far as Aleutian of the comics getting paid, and you know that thing that went down at the comedy store. Was a lot more maybe territorial on the west coast I mean. If you work the comedy store, you couldn't work the cross and vice, versa. Back. East, they really didn't lay the law down bike that you could work dangerfield's and then the convicts drip, and you know catch, or whatever if became You, know a one or the other scenario which is which is unfortunate. So I'm GonNa lump two things together here because I think they're similar in a lot of ways in that you, both today may not understand the unbelievable significance of them, but two major points of your early career was a of being on and winning the comedy competition on Star Search. Which I'm sure there's a lot of kids out here who don't know what star searches and then the second of course. Might show with Johnny Carson so I mean we'll go over things. How do those things affect you not necessarily the prize money? At CETERA, but how did each of that instantly affect your career? While you know star search was really you know that was still as he three I was on. I was I was young I was twenty three years old. You had an hour an hour. You had a minute and a half of stand. To Do, and that was it and I was going against guys to be honest. That were a lot more schools than stand up. That have been around a lot longer, and we're probably better axe to be honest, but one thing. I did have was my stuff was Kinda one winery, and quick and I did some dead on impressions. Back in those days, and when you had a minute and a half. Hit quicker than a guy doing bed about an airline or is terrorists or whatever 'cause. Ridiculous about time to give stand up I mean you're you're opening almost your closing and I got very very lucky and. Be Known for a couple of Russians. That was like. A discovery show discovery of talent. There's nothing like that before except to go back thirty years or something, so really came to look people and. I started opening for some major opening accent Vegas. City Hall and Tonight show I'm sure because of the connection that Ad. And then I went on the tonight show and I had a decent set. You know, do a lot of Improv I do a lot of off the audience and that was really Kinda my strength. Back in the day when I was on the tonight show if you had a great set. Like! A seinfeld did or shandling would. You know you you you. You've had a development deal the next day. Right off when it gave me was an incredible opportunity to. Do A standup tour. Opening for some major acts, and by doing that I really honed by craft, because you know when you're not, that wants to really see you, so you're going out in front of thousands of people with nothing, but you know your your ability. To have or not have that? So by going on the road with these big names. I really. I it really was was school. It was really. Once Star I was doing. You know like. Our years. Didn't have a going on the road. That really led to a lot of confidence. Getting a lot of fearless, you know fearless opportunities of you know you gotta be fearless. Step Up, and by going out in front of these people were. No one wants to see it. I came back a different stand up three years later. The? There's really impressive list of talent of stars that you it open that you open for I mean I'm looking at right Sinatra David. Copperfield smokey Robinson Sammy, Davis Junior, it goes on and on. Is there anyone I mean? They're not comedians, but is there anyone whom you open for? Who gave you any sort of advice just about kind of handling an audience or just being a performer? Well, you know I. Think what a lot of it was was being able to sit in the wings and watch Sammy Davis Junior. Who is maybe the most talented person I had ever seen. maybe to this day as far as being A. He's a call them the triple threat. You know he could do everything he could sing and dance. You could act. You know he used to. He's your Phantom had just come out when I was opening for for Sammy and and he did this scene from Phantom. That was just. Chilly you know unbelie and he was supposed to play the Phantom actually in London before he got sick. And You know to sit there and watch, Sinatra. You know with a with a twenty two orchestra. Even though you know I, have to admit it was later in his wife. And you know you kind of go in and out I would have to keep introducing myself every other time I would open for. and. He kept calling me Great Barrett. And I just rolled with it because they didn't have the balls to correct the. Frank Sinatra. You don't want to correct them, you know. So I I think it was just my mom would say she would go. Why why don't you just sit him down and go frank I'm Brad. You your mom I'm GonNa. Sit Frank down to sit down with Sinatra that's going to go over well with Chile. but I think what it was. I was in a small way around. You know this this part of show. Business just doesn't exist anymore. It's very very different now and so I. Think I I I hopefully learn some sheldon ship, and they were very welcoming world and you know my key was I just kind of I. Did my show and I kinda disappeared. And then sometimes they would ask you a hang or go out to dinner or You Know Sammy was so incredibly gracious when when he would open. At On the Strip. He would invite everybody up and down the Strip that wasn't entertainer whether you were a backup singer or a dancer or a headliner, or not, not at he'd rent out the local theater in Vegas Taupo, and he'd invite everyone that was in the entertainment industry and throw a party and it was. It was really. You know it's. Just so to be around that because you know that Aras gone on, it's like. Okay guys, quick time out here from this fantastic conversation I'm having a lot of fun. Let's talk about something. That is super important, a great organization. No Kid hungry. A campaign that is helping kids remain fed each and every day. Even when school is not in session, so take a listen to this message at two. No, no kid hungry because of the current, Iris schools have closed. Nationwide and kids in need are missing nearly thirty four million school meals every day. For money the only healthy food they might get in a given day. No Kid hungry has a plan to feed these kids, but they need your help. Donate now. No Kid, hungry dot org to help feed America's children during this crisis in in the months to come. That's no kid. Hungry Dot Org, thanks. I! Know another big part of your careers. I want your career wanted to touch on courses of voiceovers animated features voices. How did you first get into that? That's obviously become one of your giant hauling cards. Well I started doing voice overs really in like the early eighties right around the time I was doing standup and I think a lot of that just came from the impression that was doing in my stand up on TV. The different voices at different and I've always had kind of a voice. Sounded like. You know a guy back in the tube. You know I've always kind of had this bottle to it. And once I started doing You know I started on Saturday morning cartoons and I was either playing. You know the wind or a thug or a burglar, or you know whatever, and that just kind of just lead to one thing to another, and you're the voice over businesses. It's a small group of guys and. Very grateful for what I've done. 'cause there's really there's a handful of brilliant brilliant guys out there that can do. A hundred voices and fifty sounds. I'm limited. You know so, but I got to work with just a great voice over guys like Jim. Cummings who did the with? Christopher Robin. You know we were doing. The Saturday morning cartoons in the eighties and I got to know a Lotta great guys, but it's just something I I'm a huge fan of abomination. And I think we grow up only kid, you know. You have a lot of imaginary friends and I was like he's still do. Helping that. Heck solent. Okay? Everybody loves Raymond. Where did you find inspiration for the character Robert? Well, you know it's funny. I had a fight for that audition I I had trouble They just didn't see me doing it. And Array was like no, no, not the guy for star search which I understand. but even now what of the the? No one would these the giant you know? but the minute I read the script I begged my managers at the time I. I! I know this guy you know. I just yeah. The writing was so good on that show and the minute. I read it I just had a very different way of playing it and they really you know. They were out to a couple of other actors and I begged the just go read for the Creator Phil. Rosenthal and They wanted like Danny Devito. Type of you know little pit bull guy that was always at raise heels. The COP brother in real life was shorter than ray and very jealous and he and even that line. You know everybody loves. Raymond came out of raise life after he won an award for a stand up. And his brother saw the award, he got and goes well. That's great i. just got shot today, but I I guess everybody loves Raymond. So that's how that ended up that line in the pilot, but I just wanted to play him. Opposite of. The opposite. They saw as was just you know. You know we did a bursts of anger. I just wanted to play it, but. I owe a lot to the writing and they knew how to write for for for this character so well all the characters. But. There's a fine line of you know not playing anger and comedy playing frustration. So they kept governed frustrated. You know then a lot of ways he he had the upper hand. Over Raymond, but the family wouldn't allow it. So. It was a lot of fun things to play. You know we talked about all the different things that you do. Do you still enjoy doing a mix of things all the time? Because now you're on a new show on ABC, but at the same time you're still pouring in doing one man shows and performing in front of people. Is there something you prefer over the other, or do you just need that variety? You know I get bored easily. I'm a little. Add or add and I just you know that the point in my life that I wanted to what I love or I want to do something that I've really. Attracted to like when I read the pirate for single parents, I was like boy. There's Douglas Guy. This is a very different character for me. This is something I haven't played on TV. And I was really intrigued. And then when I knew that you know, Kevin. Killen was part of it. was such a fan of him in now and then I met the guy, and he's just one of the kindest humans like well, this is. This is a no brainer I hope we can make this happen, but I feel like different avenues I just got done doing I'm dying up here which was a very dramatic role on the showtime show that they wrote for me and it was. It was something that scared me. At first I was like ban. This guy is super dark. I love the role. And I couldn't wait to. You know very very grateful that they would write something like that for me because that doesn't come along for comedic people often. But So I like you know kind of. It's fun to do things I haven't done yet. As far as a stand up, I'll always go back to that 'cause. That's why I love, and it's something that you really never have down. It something where it's different every night. And The people change. Okay cool one more question. Four inches four back to Raymond real quick. There's always persistent rumors. There's rumors that even you know. Years ago, there was heavy talk about. WHAT'S TOKYO? Where would Robert if there were? If there were a spin off that were going on after you know at some point then or now. Where was headed? He'd probably be divorced and running from the law this. Is With you. He was robbed at night You know it's funny, we we. We talked about it very early on on the last year. We had some really great ideas. And we thought it was going to happen, but they just they couldn't make a deal with you. Know They wanted the same. You know we all wanted the same writers. Obviously the same show runner because the the magic there was the writing. Of course, the cast had a covets chemistry, which is what's exciting for me about the new show actually because. We just had this chemistry in the pilot. It's very rare. You can only fake it so much, but when you. The tag onto. Another person's timing or reaction at feels natural, which you just did with with single parents. But there was a lot of moving parts, but I would probably say that You know Robert would probably be divorce right now. MAYBE LIVING WITH RAY! We'll put that on twitter, but without you separate their your coat. Thank you! We covered everything and we're good so I appreciate your time all right you, too. Guys.

I'm just an artist who hate and then they'd say that but then their band is some pun of the word sun only. So and we didn't mean to be christian. Seems like you did like you knew exactly what you were doing at three sixteen in the van name. We kind of know what the name of your album is lord of lord. I think you do. They like to do that once. They get to a certain level though. Because i feel like in christian entertainment like you can get like you can get to a certain point faster there. Because you've you've made a smaller market you know so you're like oh well i can get and then once they're like super stab they're like well we're not really christian. Already tapped out of the christian market breath. The door knows exactly. Who's talking pamela. be. I wasn't gonna say long as you guys say something. That's that yeah. Well that's it is that the. That's how the babylon be got on my radar. Because i would get tagged by friends every once in a while like. Oh have you seen this or or you guys would have an essential oils bit and you kind of get tagamet. You guys had an old headline about a passer. A corolla and i used to do a bit about how i was like the average corolla. That's to pop down but we still no no no no no. Hey listen. Nothing new under the sun But again now that you brought it up those were. I'd like some of those one of my favorite Be headlines like i really like the absurdist ones and there was one a for years ago. The headline is jolo steen now. Flies remember that one. I don't know why it just struck a chord in the sky. I don't even know he might have done something ridiculous. The day before the power of positive declaration that was an atom original really we took over the site and ruined and now is not a compliment to you. Guys know that makes me like it was working with adam at the time. But that's the that's the complaint. We always get okay when adam sold the site. That's when it got sold. That i was always writing a lot of the material that i was gonna say that you guys like is that because you're bigger now is that we've got ruined green day. Did you sell out what it is. Yeah this is our american idiot. You making up now. She'd doing eyeliner episode. I think anybody who feels like they. They were around originally. It's just the hipster share. Yeah to be like well. There was definitely a shift where our first year or two. The babylon was way. More big for its christian church jokes. Yeah and those kind of ran their course a lot of ways and also then the trump president trump everything happened and the political humor. Just like we always had both. Yeah but early. On the christian humor did much better and then it just shifted like the political jokes do much better now right right so you know about ask. You have a solar conscience. What musk retweets. That's what you gotta do exactly. That tried like six different stories to attention. You got that is an actual thing as the bills a conversation you have sometimes yeah. I don't blame a thought in the back of your head. You're like share. It's can we get them to get their attention. Yeah no i get that. I have a joke where i reference john mayer and i've thought i would. I would like if he saw this. I wouldn't mind kind. it is. Yeah it's a it's a story about which the story is so real. It sounds fake. But it's i'm doing some real pioneering stuff and joking about how wide i am real edgy stuff. Really change the game. I don't judge people's names but just teasing about me and my wife being just cartoonish -ly white couple and my wife one time. This is a true story. We were at my son's soccer game in his friend came up. Who happened to be african american and my wife asked him his name and he said jamir in my wife said john mayer like. I said there flabbergasted like that. You think. Translate that happen. How would you think this little black child. First name is john mayer. That's that's you're reading this scenario. But yeah i would love to see us at the player on my kids one time in a small black african american child there. We say black now. I don't know which one you did. Both african and then black. They kept calling him little black boy. Don't call a little. Yeah there'd be really sweet to yeah but in their mind that was the thing to call it a little black boy. Yeah children are. I can tell you this with confidence because both live in my house. Seventy year old men and thirteen year old boys are the least woke group. On the planet they have no amount of progressivism to them whatsoever. Progress ass or but there's not like my thirteen year old son and my seventeen year old dad totally aligned you and the words they say and the words that they think they can say what they think is funny the exact same exact same so maybe you just take a break between thirteen and seventy s as far as like i need to exist socially in the world a little bit more so i need to dial back a few words but i feel for my dad like like we're talking from coups bay oregon. Yeah which is so random very random. I've probably spent a ton of time acoust- bay and then the lakeside connection even more lakeside. Koos bays the city to us like we dropped the. They've got the red lion they have to hotels. It's it's the big. It's the bright lights. But i mean he's like He was born in one thousand nine hundred fifty one and his high school had a black person. Just just the one you know and it's like you can only like. Aarp does not send out a newsletter. Saying hey these are the words. We can't say anymore. You can only expect so much from someone in born in that setting like he's very lovely in-kind you know there's a little rough around the edges kind of words. Would he say only. My mom's born nineteen fifty so yeah. She uses some of those words in each other. There's a chance. Yeah i will ask snacks or anything is going to be exclusively. And then we're going to move on to read sport. We're just going to do all of them. Want to one or worked. Yeah safeway and reads pull. My dad. had a really sketchy doctor and reads support. That would give him pills. I probably shouldn't have the reads poor way. Well well. we can't talk all day about koos county. I think oregon but can. I don't want everyone to feel lots of beaver jokes. Beavers proud of them there. I saw one one time. It took me like ten years of living in the area to see and he goes back visiting. Actually getting bar mitzvah when you're in spain. Thank you have seen you. First beaver coming of age story. What the had on you or something. I don't know well. They make it sound like they're everywhere and they hide well or something. We're the clean comics so we're talking about the animal with a clean comics. Not even in question on this. Nobody had made that connection. And tell you just call so seattle. Yeah so technically federal way. Which is like riding tacoma. But then you know when i got married and i went to the university of washington and lived up there for about ten years. That's where i like. Identify a little more. You know like. I've lived in san diego for like nine years but seattle especially grown up in seattle in the nineties very iconic. Very like this who you are time. You know. it's a very strong identity grunge. Yeah cut like the tail end of grunge like kind of the punk scene coming after because what cobaine died in ninety four so i was ten so it was like you know i was around. But i'm not going to isolate iran concerts that point but not yet this a few four five year max so i caught the tail end of it. You know. it's like very much like defined the era that shawn kemp then. Ken griffey junior. I mean that. was you know. Pretty pretty pretty rock-solid time for seattle in the nineties so you see something like like chaz happened in seattle surprise it didn't happen earlier pat and you're like oh yeah no surprise. That's going on in portland. Then like because. I lived in portland before i moved here. And it's like yeah well. It wasn't happening before. Yeah yeah it was always bubbling. It only seems like a slight exaggeration of capitol hill already was as someone who spent a lot of time there. I was like yeah. I mean you dialed it up. Maybe a point you know you just named it was better branding. That was all you know. So it wasn't a it wasn't a surprise at all and also not a surprise that it didn't go well as many wonderful or utopian ideas are. Oh what's that. There's no cops people getting murdered. What a stunner. What a huge surprise a lack of law enforcement and not to make light but was that was that was not a surprise at all. Yeah i had something. I forgot it. So san diego san diego diego. I lived in san diego. I love san diego sitting in the world. So what why do you go. San diego huge comedy. I mean if you lived in san diego and the you're on trial here. Why did you move to well. I didn't i moved half li. I'm like start undisclosed. Januario say general though are the location of our office is in the new york times. I said. don't tell us where they are. And they just put it in the caption sheet that so you left. San diego did okay. Why did you leave. Basically for this joe okay. But we'll ask the questions around here. San diego san diego was an excuse to leave seattle like i. I was working at a big church up there. A name marshall church. You may have heard of the christian thomas mas- no i worked there and i always say like people are like you like we left before the crap hit the fan. It was rising and we're like. Hey let's let's get outta here. We send you seems nice and the job opportunity down there and i wasn't doing comedy at the time so but we moved down there and that's when i started doing comedy now you know if there's a there's a mass exodus out of california and stuff but like if you don't if you live in san diego you're ats fine. It's such a cool point. Yeah it's it's pretty lovely down here and like the like it's it's i mean i'm sure it's even more so in. Certain county subaru. I made the joke story. Just like like the second round of lockdowns. It feels a little bit like win. One parent grounded you but the other parent has to enforce it and they're not as enthusiastic you know they're like they just kind of have to save face a little bit. You can do whatever you want. But i but don't tell them you know and you've caught onto the grounding now really as enforced. Yeah because at the end of the day comes down to the cops and they don't wanna de you. Yeah this whole national conversation about how the cops are already have way too many different things to deal with and right add on them getting on eating. You know wearing a max between bites. Yeah you really you really gave. Yeah our cop's supposed to handle any of this show last night in anaheim and it was a. It was so funny because we were just like i mean. Is this illegal tomorrow life. We criminals at midnight and it was a drive in show drive in show and muffled laughter inside closed cars. I know every once in a while you you pod you hit with those hard hitting questions. Do you have a good stories. Listen i like our guests do more research than we. I'm stadium comedian. By the way i don't know i don't know about me. I didn't like the. But i if there's plenty of bad stories and stuff like you know been booed off stage or have had way. I had a proposal. I remember one time a proposal before me and the girl said no. There's been like amazing but are now going to subscribe chicago but like now all the bad stories are this year's comedy stories like drive. Driving store drive ins are terrible. I mean there couldn't be worse. It's sake it's one way worse than zero really way worse because at least zoom. There's something you know it's one thing to be at a show and like walk somebody and see them leave. It's quite another to hear them. Turn on their engine away in the other scenarios like they might be going to the bathroom like they're leaving they are. Yeah exactly they like. You could have changed your fan belt before you being heckled by squeaky fan belts. So it's all it's all real bad but the guy. I was talking to the one of the guys at the venue was like so this and he said like one of the saddest sentences. I've ever heard he goes. Yeah we we're we're you everything shutdowns at the grove in anaheim. He does We had to cancel the beach boys next week. Look i've ever heard but also just like this is where we're at california. You can't come listen to the beach boys car. This is not allowed to drive in. It wasn't because it's the shared bathroom. That's why the drive ins have to close to you. Know they can't bring like a bottle or something. Yeah yeah exactly could find their way. Yeah it's not like all right. This is a country where we polar says straps and figuring out at you a mask and a catheter as you come in cloth bags we provided under something. They're going to be a singularity because they're closing down all the small businesses and all the gatherings and eventually you're just gonna have everybody in one like the store you like a million. This is the pandemic free store. Well they've shown to that like when you close down stuff it just makes people go gathering homes more which is way worse as like this yes and then the curfews which is a weird thing. It's like yeah if everybody doesn't go out for a certain amount of time and they'll all go out more around the same time that should help you can't get covert after ten and you can't get it sitting down and it's great news. You can get covid city now. This significant i love. I always prefer sitting anyways and safer. I think that that's what's like like for me i. I'll here folks like talk about like you know like government control and they overreach and whatever. You have your stance. I don't care to me. It's just shown. Absolute like the incompetence and the arbitrary nature of like in san diego. We had a point where i was like. I was just like went on as like okay. So just so we're clear. Schools closed strip clubs open. Churches close casino as long as you would admit to the arbitrary nature of. Don't don't play any game where you're acting like one safer or more dangerous. Just be like. Hey man we don't know what we're doing this is absolute guesswork. Just no churches below bay or what is it. I don't know i don't know. Churches need to be more well. There's some that have been pretty rebellious. Macarthur right macarthur went to bat. You know which like we're asking if that's been your life's work and someone's like hey. You can't do this anymore like i understand where he's coming from. You know i don't. I'd say easy. It's the best exclusive had to skip church for nine months. So i've never been late to zoom church every week every week in the living room every single you. I've not. I'm not like dying to get back and sing oceans next to a stranger. There's no there's no part of me. that's like. Get us back gathering you know. But i'm not a pastor. And if i was maybe i'd be i'd care a little more on that. This is completely off the track but i was listening. You're comedies things. And you made an offhand remark. Great sal your comedy things. This does you'll like a grandparent interrogating me. We're makes you want to do comedy. Why would you watch one of your comedy things off off off to the side remark where you said you made it. You said saul seven than you said or a. If you've heard my other jokes and i haven't heard the talking about but my wife continually gives me crab because i pronounced salsa salsa not thinking about what the head. She thinks he's been more an anomaly. Said that no it's a thing. Yeah my i. It's a part of north west. I don't know. I don't know what my wife She's from nowhere. She's she's a military lab exactly. Yeah no i mean the nowhere. The distant no. It's sorry to nerdy the know she. She grew a military brat. And so it's not like a distinct identity there but like she. I think her mom said it. And she says it and it's part of a larger bit where it just stay like marriages really like marriage is like it's less about like it is about like how much you adore somebody. But it's also much how much you can endure them. Can you stand there. Terrible things and my wife says souls and i laugh about it but i see it like hurt. Other people she says. Oh gosh you know and it like really great. I mean we live fifteen minutes from mexico now so the pronunciation also is important. It's we live in northern tijuana. And but i can. I can put up with it. I can handle it. That's i've learned to change i. I don't say it wrong anymore. Good yeah how does he pronounce tacos. She she she's a little racist. She doesn't eat mexican food. And that's why she says salsa it's actually a disparaging way against the culture. It's between that and jamir. It's really bad. Get along great. Have your big fan of the b. b. imagine so good racist so she and essential oils sales woman. No no no no. She sees through that stupid nonsense. That's all in your brain maybe just like religion but there's some truth to that idea what i mean right here. Do you believe. I said i go to church. When i'm i'm on the team just a comedian who happens to be crucial christian. Comedian knows the yeah. That's all in your brain right like peppermint fixes nausea. I mean if you wanted to if you want it to it. Can i bet it. They have one for everything. I an in law. She's deep deep. Deanne to the essentials. You should watch my standup comedy sometime. A lot about this stuff. And i send you a free copy of and so i did watch it because they watched it and told us that i watched it on the card and so the forty two minute car ride. Yeah i've watched it. Why didn't you. But i didn't get to the essential part about eleven minutes. I was giving you the chance. I was just missed it right after. The guy falls this morning as i am gonna listen to something the other guys did listen to this. Zoom corentin co. There you go. Yeah that is definitely a few listen to that was like it was the first thing that popped up when i search your name and video. That's that's good youtube. It's will you know that because you're starting to do more video stuff with this that you're like you're like oh i haven't like a bunch of a bunch but i like on instagram. People are like oh. That's this is like a guy. He does some stuff on youtube you like. Oh he's trying. He's trying to be here in this new space brutal. It is because it's social media and the search engine and so you're just like and none of the social media wants to let you share it. No no no. If you share you on. Facebook at dice. Doesn't they all want us there. Video getting people actually share it and yeah it's they. They're like a divorced parents. Where like you say something. Nice about your mom. But you're dad didn't wanna hear i'm not going to support that in any way anyways rulers. Chance my dad going back to cruz bay so prefontaine from coups and my dad went to high school with him and prefontaine very. He's a runner. And sadly i mean he's the runner right very sadly died in a drunk driving accident and my dad said yeah. You know you can take the kid out of coups bay but you can't take the coups out of the kid you sound like he was just still good old boy. You know. I'll have some drinks and drive without a seatbelt around eugene super said anyways yeah used to deliver on prefontaine lane. Go anyway. Coffee pastries okay. Kyle just grew up in california's boring boring his as a boring story that i have a boring life story for other reasons share testimony retreats and stuff could really got robbed because i have great parents grew up in the church. Yeah i always get a quasi knows so sad. Yeah they're scared me. Thanks a lot mom and dad usually that makes for a more exciting adulthood. But you didn't rebel. No did you ever rebel. All where interim kyle rebellion. Yeh a bong well so so. Our church growing up was very like our church growing up as a mainline seeker. Sensitive like a little wishy washy and stuff so my rebellion was getting hardcore about politics on me ice between me and my wife. My wife was always a real world and i think she's like hitting this point where she's realizing like i've just followed every rule ever and i feel like i'm like in this box or whatever. My rule following was a bit of an act of rebellion. Because my parents never really told me to do it and it was like this weird thing because i grew him an artist and artists all the time it felt more rebellious to like be more conservative into actually listen preaching saturno to be more to not be like a total hippy. That's right doing drugs and drawing lime high. Yeah so it was more my choice rather than feeling i was falling the rules. Yeah so yeah. You rebelled again. I know you know no no. It's fine. I'm just happy to be part of it. All revel in seattle. You become a police officer moving to portland. That's funny yeah. Well if you're like constantly like in the extremes sometimes when you like. I don't know they'll cities are like full of just regular people but they don't necessarily write the headlines they don't they are at the spokespeople mascot of the city now know exactly. That's a good way bob. Yeah a like. Most people see a camera and they're like how go i gotta go to work. I got a. I don't have like really. What my like. What seattle schools of one hundred thousand people. That were microsoft. That's what seattle is full and designers and see exactly so. It's the game designers. Probably we're at chance a lot of them. maybe anyway. I like the idea of like having a soft like a little like a little new theology as your rebellion. So funny or like maybe not as hardcore. I don't believe in the p. In tulip out like oh my gosh. We've got a real product here. Cast me out whole thing pastor. Yeah kind of mars hill. Yeah it was like you know when you're when you're in your early twenties and you're trying to figure out what you wanna do with your life if you happen to be around church circles sometimes you just pick up a job there and you're like i was like. Oh yeah maybe you're going to do ministry him on the team and this is cool. But like i was like twenty toes only age appropriate youth ministry. I'm not going to get into marital counseling. You know sounds like. I'm barely older than a few of these kids. Josh hair of these kids were like freshman. When i was a senior. And i'm like i'm your pastor. Now there's a little bit. So i did that but i was never. The main guy was more likely planning guy which is a big church. So it's just like there was multiple roles and i was gonna do ultra calls maybe a couple here and there you know but You altered calls. The comedies exclusively. It's actually the last doing offering call the carmen another offering. Yeah i think there's big money for christian comics kids go round at churches and be like. Oh i'm the christian comic they'd be like eleven ring nail that marketing completer jokes man. Yeah there's i mean there's like some Like huge comics in the church world. And i've always had like a foot in that world and some of them were frigging hysterical to tim. Hawkins tim akins is one of the funniest ever meant on and off stage so funny like just effortlessly talent like you can do anything like we would be like like a toured with him for a couple of years and we would be like. I'd take like six weeks off by came in. And how was your. You know what you do. And he's like. I learned french in piano. Like just that guy you know like he walked on it like to play. Baseball mizzou got a scholarship. Then quit you know. Like just like the can do whatever i want guy. So there's some that are really fun and then there's some that are just like oh you're here because this was your only option. Nothing else you know like because like they're nicer here and you can get and there's all christian comes audiences. Yeah there's no draws ready to laugh. Yeah yeah it should worship leaders. Yeah exactly my experience in the the ones who are like the funniest of the christian. Comedians are ones who started at wind or are still in the club circuit. That's just just makes you better. You're just it's just because it's harder you know was like anything. It's just more intense training. You know so. But that goes both ways. Because i've dealt with rowdy drunks and plenty and i'll take producer. No no i will say drinkers. Drinking drinking christian crowd is like the best crowd you can get. It is like you know i was like. Oh this is because you guys like appreciate of the cleaner stuff. But you're a little looser is far well. I mean obviously biologically in that moment. you're a little looser. you're impaired. The put their sense of humor. A little less uptight when you if you have some christian fans that like come see you at a comedy club and they have a couple of drink minimums. This is ideal. This is perfect. Perfect crazy setting right here. But i'll take. I'll take that over. Like i've done like youth gigs. And you're like oh gosh. Give me rowdy drunks as angsty teams. Yeah yeah oh yeah i did. I did a junior high lock in and the right what they did before me is. They had This was early on in the career. And you know there are a lot more yeses early on in the. There's also been a lot more yeses in two thousand twenty. I don't wanna do it. But huey rent and before me that junior high pastor got up and he's like hey before we bring up the comedian. Never you just bring me up. I don't want any before you know. And he goes and he goes everybody. Come get a pixie stick and the big pixie sticks the huge and pounded and then we're gonna have a contest of who can scream the loudest and so the five minutes before we was just impounding drugs just putting drugs in their system and then yelling and then they announced me but nobody heard it because they were still yelling and now i was just the guy on stage and it went real bad real bad and most of the room. I wasn't that i bombed it was most of the room just started doing other things. Like they're like we're gonna go over here and play soccer. We're just gonna go over here and start passing notes. it was. Yeah i would do that gig next month if i had the opportunity right now. It's been a slow year. I would say the biggest slap on the face so far should go back to making fun of california is is when they had me renew my business license. I was like you're not gonna let me be a business but you're gonna make me renew taxes. Seems insulting so it's like when they're giving parking tickets. La right now. You're like oh so you're not allowed to leave but you got to move your car. Come on guys. this is seems we're going to get their exactly back. Accusa bay snorted in order to pixie stick on the school bus on a dairy started. The entire pixie outside turned into the yard or burned a small. No that's yeah. That's august could taste the flavor or was it just burning. It was burning tastes earning and sinuses and a little bit of lime. That would be that would be a better line. that'd be a better version of hot ones. I mean if i see everyone labels spicy. He's story so paul rudd right right for the only about then in the wod deal. Okay at us. The sauces. I bought some of those sauces from holland's curious there no joke diggity the bomb one. Yeah the bomb dog and something like that. It's like a nucleus the second to last one. Yeah and it is like yeah is that it is an enjoyable experience. Yeah who's that four but no. It's interesting because i'm like you'd think they are enlisted different in there because he just think celebrities. How would that you know you're putting yourself in. I guess that's what makes the show interesting. The somebody that's always perfect and then they're gonna eat something that hot. Yeah handle it. Yeah because i was just curious. So i got i got a little bottle i should bring it on. Yeah but those are real products like who's consuming those people. I mean i like hot. I like really like but then that is a certain level where it is like a cross into that like Being a masochist. Yeah people pain. That's real you know. I'm the flavor so kids flannel beard for blaxland on thanking going. The mirror on the cure in just the nails. We'll talk you have to do manley museum. Henry sound guard. Ashby or something hard task. So why did you have kids. that's you know. I was just wanted to fill fill. The abraham at covenant you know multiply correct answer. You got married young right. Yeah as nineteen. Wow you're i was. I had turned twenty one month prior. So yeah so i beat you beat me. So how are you from when you got married because a lot of people get married that young. They're like a whole different person like ten years in. Yeah totally different wife. Still on board already similar. She's similar to who she was but how she handling you changing. I think she likes me better. Now that's good. Yeah i think she likes me then but it is like she likes me. She married me. She was on the team dickey abusing you know get married in nineteen. That's more than just like marriage right. You don't really well. you're also christian. You just can't wait to have say like primary considered when i still couldn't find anybody to like thirty two. We're like we dating in high school and we're you know do you. I don't know this is a personal question. Sure you i have a you know because like the purity culture stuff is very much out of youth group and then you always wonder. You're like probably older christians doing this to are they waiting. You know like it's. I've s my wife. If we started dating now thirty five or thirty six you know but in high school like when you're in like youth group like youth group culture is like the sex and lust and they'd be like hey mandy look at porn and this week no great bullied a special needs kid. That's fine you didn't look at porn totally fine. And he's lying about that. Totally that you lied. Not really the only one god cares about is literally the only sin and which just like like make in some ways that you're like i mean that was like the old like it was harassing the bouncing is or whatever. You're just like that just to make sure it's gonna freak usually like walking around in public like see. Look schizophrenic bobby. All the time. Like i think you need to teach someone to be able to politely. Go up to a young woman and have a normal conversation like why won't you look me in the eye contact. Say as a man who is courting at age. Thirty thirty one. Oh yeah it's much harder. I mean it's like right. We're adults yeah. You don't have a youth pastor. Nobody literally no one will judge us. If we're doing nine to be judgy that you didn't yeah did pretty good. I'm going get into detail. Those verses are kind of loose anyway. i mean there's so many guys. what was ruth doing. I mean david with things heated. Keep where bed pure. i mean. That's pretty vague. We'll start is a social construct anyway so you know. We'll start seeing things and you blink if you did before we go this contest with the fingers and never have i ever to reflect back on that time of your life because you're like you know we've been married for sixteen years now and you're like that was like the only thing that was just like don't have sex don't have sex. Don't don't do anything period period. The only thing that mattered and now you're grownups and you have real issues going on as i like. I have to study for finals and not have sex. Those are the only things in my world right now so now. How many kids later are you. We have three kids and we will. I mean lord willing. We will be having no more kids. Yeah my wife wanted four. I gonna to. We had thirty and she pretty great you. She seemed like. I think she's scheduled. My vasectomy during labor like it was on the calendar fast. And doesn't this was a discussion that we had. She's scheduled yours yes. I what percentage get scheduled during labor probably high. So yeah exactly. Yeah i yeah. Would you like me to ensure this doesn't happen again so you had kids just for the jokes no. I wasn't a comedian. No at the time. Yeah i was. I started comedy latest. Had two kids been married for nine years so it was a thought. Cross your mind and for that point and now. I don't know like i didn't know how to do it. You know like like. I love stanton figure that out the state of comedy like i always love. Stand up comedy. It's you know like when you were growing nineties early. two thousands. It was on all the time on comedy. Central comedy central mtv like it doesn't play music anymore like they barely have stand up anymore like when we were growing up. It was like exclusively. It was just all the comedy central presents and south park and then the daily show chapelle show like that was what the channel was. And so i love stand up comedy and then when i like it was almost like a bucket list type thing for lack of a better word but then when i moved to see you know when you move anymore like i've always wanted to try this myself. There is a little bit of that. Because it's like lesson baresi. You know like if i would like grown up in seattle he would do an open mic. Like just an okay. And the answer was i was not but at least i be and anonymity and so i just went to a local open mic at a comedy club and santa is so hard and bad especially at. I like people like i've always wanted to try it like well do it and you will know right away if you want to keep doing it and it will. It will teach you pretty quick because it's it's never worse than the beginning. You know like you go your first few sets the when you open mics for the first couple of years. You know it's just like you come in and there you have little phrases use only make sense. The comedy worried about do their seven but they're a good seven okay so we're working with you know like or there's sometimes you'll perform literally for nobody. You're just like a psychopath in the corner. Just broadcasting these jokes and you tell yourself this. I remember one of the first things early on i started can be really helpful in stage. Time to run a show early on because then you get a guaranteed stage time. And then you know you're booking people and sometimes book you back and stuff like that so i inherited a show. There was another show at a little place close to where i live called space bar. Space bar is an internet cafe. Which very dated. It's just. It's a coffee shop space bar exactly there. You go and it was always speaks space bar. It's time love eleven meanings it's It's bad coffee. Worst comedy really bad and and it was. It was always so bad. The you've had all the normal distractions of like i remember. I always get so mad when somebody would order a smoothie because the blender and was like this is going to be like three minutes of me and there was just wait it out but i remember one time so they had like internet cafe so they actually had computers at amman stage bombing for four people and i look over and the computer to my left. There is a guy on the computer with headphones on watching. Stand up comedy. He's watching. Daniel tosh like mike and i'm like this is i'm right here and you're watching but in the moment i can't blame him because that is better than what he's seeing. It just felt particularly insulting so those were a lot of the early gigs stuff like that. We had a little coffee shop in my back and kucic shoe deal. This is a you know. I'm the only guest they do acoustic shows. Yeah but then like every two minutes it'd be making blending up some kind of frappuccino or something. So they'd be the only guy like look into the gig there at the mill. So those are that's title that you do is casino gigs. Those are like some of the worst ones you can do when they are open to the casino and you just hear like meaning like in the back and talking. Yeah exactly like you hear. Someone yelled because they want a bunch of money and yeah. It's like playing piano like that but doing comedy like this. It's bad punishment punishment and it's pay good. No no pays never good but you have to learn how to do it You know you just have to learn how to when you do the bad gigs. You just get better at it like some of the early road stuff that i did like. I got on the road pretty early. Because i was like. I got to figure out how to make money at this time. Have to have an hour. I have to become a headliner will have to figure these things out and go to these casinos in like arizona. Nevada stuff like that any time. You do a cold thirty you. There's no introduction. You just talk. That's what it felt like a lot of time. Were like what what's happening. They didn't necessarily know that there was a show just brutal in such a big deal to me. When i got to perform in vegas for the first time because i had to like earn vegas because i did all the other bad cities in in nevada like i did primm three times laughlin and romp mosquito finally like it's very depressing when you had to do mosquito because you have to drive through vegas like an hour and you know that's where the shows are not supposed to be going past to this to go into mosquito bam. It's not even really a bomb. It's like you're just like it's like it's a concert shows that happening there and people are like mentally like you imagine. Just one person that you love just watching the people that are enjoying it and just go straight to nobody though You just kinda like like going to loom fair we're on old school blackout. What happened. I did not you just you you i like. Can you explain the plot of old school for me and home school now. I've seen it either. Yeah okay well. that's very that's for. That's very much. I thought in the case of most adult most huge movie tonight s. Okay but i understand. They better christians than me. And whatever nerves but yeah you just like at the beginning of camping. Like you're just like a really scared of bad gigs. And then you do enough of them that you were just more annoyed by emulating hoping this would have been a good one. just start. cussing out the audience. You know that's happened. One time i've lost my then i did one time. Yeah just cut out the audience. Know two girls To they were women. I don't know why they were. Little girls Yes and everybody on stage liked me accept them and i would make fun of them and everybody was laughing including their friends. They were all laughing. It was a group of women. Eleven is a winery gig. Winery gigs are so brutal. Because like the shows at seven but they got there at two by the time that you. This isn't a hey you know and dealing with drunks is. I always use a metaphor. It's like it's like a move in a mattress like even when you got it. You don't really feel like you got it like i could lose you at anytime. That's how it feels because when you're drunk there's no social cues look at me shut up and they're like the stupid like no. No no i need you in gigs. like that. never have. There's no security. there's nothing you know it's just you up there. You're your own security and you should carry pepper spray for that reason. That's good yeah. I just start said that would've been a big enough now to get cancelled and they surely wasn't then but pepper spraying some women in your audience is probably wouldn't shut up. That would be talking. I dislike church. Women shouldn't be talking in general couldn't believe they were in here without their head coverings. And so now everybody's laugh because we have a good time with ed and was it was. It was fun and they like flipped me off and and because they were stewing lost. I know i wouldn't. I wouldn't say i lost it. I said some choice. Words i believe to edit my own self. I believe i said was f- me. Why don't you go f yourself. And i called my wife and i was like. I'm sorry says on youtube. Toop exactly winery even the internet. There don't know that it's made it. S within the space bar. Before the bright lights of space spar waited at spaceport has the to. yeah spatially bar spence. That's one of those areas in california. It's just kind of acting like nothing's happening like you go to to make yellow and you're like okay. You're not there's there's nothing there's no math they're it depends where you are. But they're just kind of acting like and that's all fine. Yeah that is correct. Chicken general area. We're yes oh okay. We just walked through the mall. No one's word mask. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah kissing all kinds of stuff. Yeah yeah the whole thing. Yeah great which goes to show you to so my story. A good comedy crowd doesn't matter if you're conservative. liberal it matters if your level of sobriety or at is there a difference in crowd. I dunno between like big cities small town or more liberal more nod or even just like culturally share. Yeah absolutely you know. I think that i like. I like to be versatile. I like to feel like i want to do well. Everywhere you know which means i do pretty good in most places and i'm great nowhere like an entirely by the point of being like there's different like i heard your episode with dan or larry the cable guy and you know there is some truth to what he was saying. You know as far as like liberal crowds can be a little more uptight. Early fully agree with that because some of my favorite shows ever have been in portland and some of it just depends what you're doing and i am like i kind of like flirt with political humor. You know like. I'm not like right on it anytime and i like. I try to avenue bit like that. I've been working on. And it's like i kind of like tell everyone top like i just wanna goes like the way get into your politics are like your kids. I don't care about them. You know like. I care about mine. And i'm glad that you have yours but my job is to find the funny and everything and if you don't make fun of both sides i'm like then you're missing a huge opportunity because both extremes to me are ridiculous like a conservative. That can't laugh at trump might come on guys like that. Was one of the ironies elected a reality tv star for president. And you have a terrible sense of humor about it. He's fine he's funny sometimes on purpose. Where you're like okay. You're funny and then other times you like like him getting cove it and then doing the drive around. And you're like this and what he's doing now like that the rumor that he might like what he's talking about getting air force one during biden's like this is so funny in sometimes it's intentional and sometimes it's not have to laugh at the ridiculousness that is this human. And that he's in charge and that we made him in charge. So you can kind of laugh at that then you also have to have at. He'll seize on sixty five dollars tax the rich shirts. You have to laugh at that. Like i understand what she's coming for. Because i made a joke about that. Like 'cause my official political stances. Not only i don't care about your politics and but that person doesn't care about you They don't they don't they. Don't care they're not like. I hate celebrity political culture. I hate that they're anyone's popular. I don't like when they're on covers of magazines. I don't like when they're on late night shows. I want like anonymous politicians. Who like i just just don't but they can't be that way because their job is popularity their job is not to be a public servant right. Their job is to get a. They don't have a job. If they don't get elected and so they have to speak in soundbites and triangle viral and have big tweets and all this stuff with crenshaw. And i'm like what are you doing. Don't you guys have jobs tweet. At each sub tweet each other like your elected officials stop tweeting at each other. So they're waiting for votes and stuff. I kill i am tweet near guys is or hate tweeting your whatever made me in our podcast crenshaw coming out. Yeah there you go. Yeah i don't i like i just don't care in that sense i feel like when you can do the hard work of finding like like works like this trump that. I'm working on right now when i was in raleigh and it was doing well scary and then when it can do well in portland or sf or anything like that. It's like okay. I just made a good joke here. And regardless if it's like it's it's fun to set it up though 'cause you're kind of like a cat when they like when they're deciding where they sit down that kind of prepare the area and so you kind of doing the emotional workup top because if you're lagoon trump socks or stupid stuff like that like you've already put them off but if you have something to say on it then if you can do the work and that's kind of what the whole and i'm not gonna the whole bit but like the whole angle is that i don't i think that trump is like he's a professional wrestler at this point he speaks catchphrases. You know he gives his opponents nicknames remember he came pain not to smoke in lasers and stuff like sa- funny to me that this is the dude like really is a natural next step in where we were culture people act like trump just came out of nowhere. And it's like it's we're headed. Like obama like ooh remember. Seeing this state of like obama like like broke the record by like twenty times of late night appearances by president like he was in the spotlight all the time doing non quote unquote presidential things. He was just depending on where. You stand politically. He was just a little off putting like he was just like as like. I'm doing this fun. Thing jimmy fallon and you're like oh that's cool yeah exactly and then you know and then trump whatever it's like i don't know i mean i don't care about people's politics but it is a little bit of a relief sometimes. Don't want to deal with this anymore. Like people come up. Like i bet. It's good for comedy as like not stand up comedy like it's not. It's not anything that people necessarily even want to hear about a lot for. You wanna break. Yeah yeah it's very divisive. Like it is like i don't buy that. We're more divided than ever because literally had civil wars like and we've been divided. We were very divided before trump. Yeah we weren't. It's ridiculous right right. Right right. And i mean. We had literal segregation laws. We've been literally divided more than we have killed each other like this. We're not more divided but it is like as far as the consciousness goes. It can be like it's like there's just so many like triggered words and stuff like that you're just like that can make it a little dicey as far stand up goes you know. Can you go. Fetch my Mcgahan don't care. Yeah i'm as equally triggered by magazine starbucks red apron so those are the red pieces of clothing that triggered me all the people that had clicked to the laugh emoji on this video. Yeah no you started. Saying trump is bad. And stuff. And i don't think trump is bad anger. It's happening now. So is that true. Okay good well. You didn't say it was bad but you know you're he's a funny guy and some dumb things like driving around. They're like he should have done that. I mean judy up. Yeah it was pretty funny. When he got all about steroids generale. He was like a transformer. He was like you know like this is my secret code like in front of a gardening company or something. Giuliani one four. Seasons is the four seasons four seasons landscapes accident that had the neck so funny so funny so fun here about this. This is oh you hear about that. He thought it was at a four seasons and it was play wars leeson's landscaping companies like an apartment. Honestly it looks like where my special it is. It's like in a parking lot. And it's so funny i just like i don't know i don't know where you guys you have to just because you're in the world of political satire. I can't take politicians seriously because they're not serious people like some of them are but a lot of them just signed up for popularity contest. Probably most the ones that you don't see a look right. Yeah yeah like. I like you see like shift. Sometimes from like beta was a good example of like beta was like kind of under the radar and he was like liberal. You're like oh. I think i really liked this guy. Like he's like he's like he's speaking spanish in the debate and even like you can be like super like this is a little cringe like this isn't needed. They have subtitles for this happens. Sometimes when you. And i feel like i feel like crenshaw may sharing in that direction like once you get established in the limelight. It's like you're like. Oh well i have to do the next thing you know. And that's like we live in the world of entertainment. And so i'm like i see what you're doing here. You know like you're trying to get another big tweet. You're trying to be in the news. Let your job is to get votes anyways. All the angry emojis now see. I tried to crunch. I tried to be which just means nobody likes. You tried to pick a team. Yeah you do have to pick a team. And it's like. I told to my wife i was like you know my brand was like if i wasn't tested nickerson but like we just chose some random brand like if i was like the liberal christian or something like that i'd be huge huge like it but that but it is true. It's like your idea. But i feel like stand ups do a pretty good job of not doing. They kind of refused so is a red flag when you see that their thing. Either way yeah. Yeah maga- tour patriot. Patriot comedian comedy tour. Yeah i feel like it happens more when they get more in like the celebrity space or that becomes like their brands like bill. Maher you know like you're like oh this is what we've come to expect of you. You know but you saw like mullany on. Snl molina's my favorite comic and he came out saying like essentially that the election doesn't matter you know. I don't know if you guys saw that. But he said on s. and l. and it was something i'm paraphrasing but it was something along the lines. Yeah this was like three weeks ago. Four weeks before the election result and it was like he said like essentially like it doesn't matter who wins. Life will continue. The rich will continue to prosper in the poor will continue to suffer like he just like it was like it was it was like kind of joke but also like he kind of took away and he got in and he's been pretty outspoken. He has the great bit about. The trump is like a horse in the hospital. We can't focus on anything like this person is. I understand that but there's a horse in the hospital like very funny bit and so he's kind of been made fun of trump before he people were giving him you know crap for not taking a hard political stance one way or the other but i just don't think standups wanna be that way for the most part it's why you see chapelle make fun of both sides in burma quota both sides. Because it's not my job to do this job to point out the ridiculous nature of these things. You said that we've mentioned a few times like there's the looking at things from that third angle. There's you could go from the right angle. You'd go from left handled if you step out. Go from like that third point of view. There's a whole other cache of jokes right. I tried to do one once where i mean this. This is this said a lot of a lot of too many buzzwords in joke where you know about how when you're a moderate everybody hate you but what does it mean as well like for example like i'm pro gay marriage but i'm also pro-life which means i think if you have a if you think if you have an unwanted pregnancy you'd have to have that baby but give it to a legally married gay couple. That was a great job. What everybody hated me by the time. I got to the punchline at alienated the whole crowd was. It wasn't even like this. I'm not actually saying my stance is. I'm trying to do a joke about you. Know defend your stance on gay marriage. I don't know i love. I love when we tell the joke about trump or something and you get all. The trump people are sharing it. Yeah and they're like. Oh this is hilarious. And then they're gonna wait a minute trump. The ass was trump on in on the joke when he tweeted you guys. I don't think so. I don't think so either but i don't know so you guys know. You were assured that the news. I know he's aware of shared a few times. That one saturday. Like i can't believe your grandpa sharing a beverly article thinking i did like a little dumb little segment called said news. Where like. I'll just respond to news. And i did one on him. Retweeting you guys. And i remember people. He knew he knew i was like. How can you know that. How can you. I just thought it was this the unraveling of like reality. We don't know if the leader of the free world is ironically genuinely sharing a satire sight. How do you know anything at this point. it's full. it's a full breakdown. I had like an excess existential crisis. Like there's no there's no truth pilot what is truth. I don't know it was hard to know you know. And i feel like that's the real struggle and like it's funny that you guys are in that space because people do not catch the irony sometimes like the death of journalism essentially of just like. I don't know what's opinion. I don't know what satire real i don't. There's not a lot of critical thinking anymore. People just like hey. I listened to what tucker says recent. What matt says. I don't know and you listen to what the beasts news from the babylon he used to be. Well used to be the daily show and the daily show in some ways was is like if the daily show was on right. Now i would. I would encourage people to watch that over. Most news is going on. It's an excuse. Me jon stewart's daily show. I didn't mean i don't mean that was unintentional. I really like trevor. No i just don't feel like they're in what i mean by that is they're not in the site geist and they're not when there was a time there were john stewart was everywhere and there was like less news comedy and there was also less streaming. And so there's no one show that everybody watches anymore but it used to be the daily show. The daily show was like if you wanted news about late night. It was the daily show. This was the thing. And so. Trevor noah i like i just don't see this stuff as much and i don't hear people talking about it as much. That's all promoted for. I see like. I didn't. I would never trevor. Trevor noah will see this shaded these extremely successful comedians. I didn't mean it like to be on the daily without jerry seinfeld. I don't like to be that guy like well. No the john stewart school. And it's not as good. I'm just saying people don't talk about it. It's the ford guys. The guy by the way we rent patrick out from the daily mail after need a professional laugher. Oh great i've gotten a couple of chuckles out of you guys in. It feels like an applause break. Because it's you know it's not a you are jovial bunch but not Not not but then again you guys you know we're all taking steps back from larry the cable guy to me so as a big deal but the best left we had for him was unintentional to camera. I would agree guy. He's worth like one hundred million dollars and he's like walking around. Yeah filming us for so funny i did. I golfed with him like a probably a year and a half. I didn't know him at the time and he was very. He's he knows him to later. I knew it was him well. He would turn into major every once in a while he'd hit a good shopping. But that's what i'm talking about. That's how you four iron right there but you know you. You get an opportunity to golf with dan whitney and have a cigar. You don't say no to that and But it was very. It was one of the coolest experiences. And he's just the best dude and very funny and he hits. We played you. Take two shots every time every shy you hit twice. Put another ball down. You hit it and he would always like that. Second guys are pretty good golfer. Drinking emmy take to shop now. No no no. Yeah but one of my favorite moments of that so he lives in like middle of nowhere. Nebraska like outside of england. Bresca is the yeah middle of nowhere. I think it was either lincoln or omaha. I don't remember all of nebraska's and so you were out there. We were out there. I was doing shows out there and we went and golfed and it was very funny. We're in this is essentially like i don't even know if it's a private course but there's nobody else out there barely anybody and he plays a lot and he kind of runs the course and we were like he was driving. Golf has very specific rules of where you can and can't take the cart and he wins in an area. That was very clear you weren't supposed to go and the reason that you don't do because it was wet so it was like tearing up the course and some groundskeeper saw him. Why are you start letter. What are you doing yell and started driving. And then it got closer and he was like. Oh larry and it was totally fine mudan. That's that's the kind of power play that you have there. You drive where you drive your golf cart. Wherever you want buddy. It was just so funny to see somebody transformed like that like you were going to be hard. And then you realize i'm not the alpha here i don't wanna be the guy that scares him off of our course. True true well subscriber launch. Yeah we're going to get some juicy stories about mark driscoll. I am bombs story some stories. He had some other. You teased some things that stuff. At the beginning. I think some of his bombs. Yeah yeah you guys love a good bomb story. Oh yeah oh yeah and then yeah who are some comedians. you've performed worth.

Thursday, October 25: Who's on the list?

"It's Thursday October twenty fifth. It's a real question. How many bombs are in the mail today. We start here. A string of explosive devices intercepted on their way to some of the biggest names in politics. But how many more are out there? He's probably have left some trail along horsemeat to follow what investigators are chasing. While a lot of nervous people. Wait, most midterm candidates aren't talking about caravans or cavenaugh talking healthcare with really interesting here is to look at Republicans kind of scramble on this issue. What they are promising and what it means for you on election day. And a jury says some of the shady stuff, you thought might be happening in college basketball. Yeah, it happened. These three individuals defraud the university into giving scholarships to these players, but will it inspire the game clean up its act. From ABC news. This is start here. I'm Brad milkey. A couple of days ago, the billionaire activist George Soros received a bomb in his mailbox. They say an employee of the residents found a suspicious package in the mailbox opened it and found what appeared to be an explosive device. No one was hurt. But it was a real explosive device. Had just didn't go off so people breathe a sigh of relief. Then yesterday. We realized something was happening. It was just after one o'clock in the morning when police said they found what they called a suspicious package near the Chappaqua New York home of Bill and Hillary Clinton the secret service revealed. It had intercepted a package later Tuesday night down for the home of Hillary Clinton in the morning. They found another device in the mail. This time addressed a former President Barack Obama thirteen minutes later at nine thirty eight in the morning CNN was live on the but to have projectiles. That is a feature you thought it was a fire alarm. We're gonna jump in. There's a liar arm here in the background. We're gonna find out what the latest is out there. Then we'll be right back. A suspicious package had been found in the mail room. And this point law enforcement knows what's up there on high alert, they swarmed the building, and this is all less than a ten minute walk from where I'm sitting right now. So our GIO Benitez rushes to the scene. And we're seeing more and more law enforcement just walk in and out of the CNN building here in New York City, and you can just see all of those trucks line there that is where it is believed that the suspicious package would be taken to and what they find is a yellow package American flag stamps, and it is a dress to the former CIA chief John Brennan his name is misspelled, and he's actually contributed to MSNBC, but inside is a pipe bomb, and everyone has been putting these names together. Right Soros, Obama Clinton Brennan, these are all critics of the president law enforcement does not say they have a motive here. But the NYPD does come out saying, these are all real explosives mayor Bill de Blasios says what we saw here today was effort to terrorise is clearly is an act of terror endure. During that presser while they are speaking. We learn about two more packages. One addressed to California congresswoman, Maxine Waters, it's time for Republicans in congress to stop covering up at this president another two former attorney general Eric Holder by the end of the day. Several explosives had been discovered more suspicious packages had been examined and several buildings evacuated by false alarms. So what have investigated learned this morning ABC's chief Justice correspondent Pierre Thomas is joining us from Washington NPR? What do we know about these packages because we're not talking about scary looking things like these were real bombs? Well, law enforcement sources are looking at some commonalities number one. They all came in Manila, envelopes are with six stamps with American flags as the stamps and ABC news was able to obtain some exclusive photographs that provides some really interesting detail sources of telling us that the bombs included a battery a clock. Wiring to help detonate them. There was explosive powder included as well. So all the components that you would need to make viable dangerous device. What was it just the components Pierre or releasing functional like were they actually going to explode? Well, again, that's part of what law enforcement is investigating looking at how viable the devices. Are they have been sent to the FBI's lab in Quantico Virginia where extensive testing will be done, and they will look to see if there's anything in the system that is similar as a look for digital leaps. Within this morning peer could there be more of these? Well, that's the question law enforcement is deeply concerned about my sources were blunt all day, given the fact that you had so many devices already you have to look at the possibility that there could be and something investigators were quick to seize on here. These did not all go through the mail system. Couple were hand-delivered including that one CNN with a courier is fielding questions here. Thanks. Thank you. I want to bring in Brad Garret. He's a former FBI special agent. Now, he's an ABC news contributor. And Brad you've worked some of the biggest murder cases in the last couple of decades. So I mean say you're tasked with finding this person or people you look at the devices, you've got the envelopes, what do you do? So let's start with the devices. A what do they tell you sophisticated unsophisticated? What was the timer? Is there anything unique about it? Are there things in these bombs that could maybe lead you to a vendor the bombs also potential forensic material. I e DNA fingerprints hairs fibers as well as the packaging, apparently, there were stamps, and some of these packages, that's an obvious potential DNA if he was silly enough to lick himself. Then you move to looking at locations as to where it went into the mail stream. In fact, it did go into the mail stream and the. Real key. There is let's say for the sake of argument packages were mailed baby from the same post office or near the same post office. They're going to go to the secret services database that has captured the densities of people who've made threats in the past. Oh, I wouldn't be surprised if this guy is not in there. There's somebody who sent threatening messages in the past any escalates to an actual bomb. Exactly. I mean, this is an angry guy. He's trying to make a statement. But the important part of this bread is he was trying to kill people. When you keep saying, he what what sort of profile are you expecting here. Does this look like one, man? Well, it's probably one man based on sort of the lack of sophistication of it appears to me of how they remained etc. Or how they were delivered to the victim. So, you know, could it be she I suppose, I don't know that I know any female bomber. So maybe I shouldn't say she. But the likelihood is that it may will be that. With the end of the day. Then Brad, I mean is it somehow plus that several devices were sent because I guess as an investigator, you would have multiple data points. It's not like the Unibond that spread out, you know, hundreds of miles years apart. Exactly exactly I don't think you have that level sophistication. And I think what little we know about this. So far, I would say the following that he's pretty unsophisticated. And as a result, he's probably have left some trail prolongs to follow knowledge from the inside their Brad Garrett. Thanks for the insight or take care. And I want to mention the other angle that is going to get a lot of play today as all this was unfolding. The White House called these acts cowardly and despicable in these times. We have to unify we have to come together and send one very clear strong unmistakable message that acts or threats of political violence of any kind of no place in the United States of America. But remember President Trump has made incendiary remarks about each of these people. She is a low IQ individual, Maxine Waters. I said at the Hillary Clinton is a big the president says decision was prompted by Brennan's, quote, a Radic conduct in June. He tweeted Maxine Waters had wished harm on his supporters. Then quote, be careful what you wish for max earlier this week. He joked about a congressman who body slammed a political reporter guy that you do a body slam. He's mike. Mike and police have still not said whether politics was a motivator here last night. Former CIA chief John Brennan one of the intended recipients said I wish the president had condemned political violence more often, unfortunately, I think Donald Trump too often has helped to incite a some of these feelings of anger. There's not violence then last night on a campaign. Stop in Wisconsin. President Trump called for peace between parties those engaged in the political arena must stop treaty political opponents as being morally defective have to do them. But then with CNN employees finally allowed back in their building. He said reflection was needed from the media. The media also has a responsibility to set a civil tone and to stop the endless hostility and constant negative and oftentimes false attacks and stores have to do. They've got to stop. We'll be right back. I'm ABC news chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl from campaigns and controversies Putin bear responsibility for this may he may to store summits and stork tweets skew elaborate on I don't think it's at all acting his ability to get his job done. Join me and ABC's Rick Klein every week as we break down the biggest political stories of the day on the powerhouse politics podcasts. Listen for free on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast app. Let's go back to that presidential rally in Wisconsin. Because one of the big topics was healthcare Republicans want to create better healthcare through more Joyce, lower drug prices, and you will see very soon. Drug prices will go plunging downward, you way, you and this was his type of crowd, right? These rally crowds have been universally supportive. He's comfortable there. We'll today. President Trump will give remarks on healthcare in Washington to federal workers. And these are the people who could actually be implementing the changes he would want to make if and only if Republicans can hold onto the house, maryalice parks ABC's deputy political director, so maryalice you've been studying this what is happening in this debate. It is fascinating to watch healthcare dominate the political cycle all over again eight and ten years ago. Democrats lost on that issue. They were scared to run on the ObamaCare law and Republicans. Pounded them for it. Now, the ties a totally turned we see voters by and large liking, the so-called, ObamaCare law, more and more particular the one that's always debated are the protections for people with preexisting conditions people who've had old medical diagnoses, and they don't want to go back to a day where they could be denied coverage or have their their prices skyrocket because of those old diagnoses. So we're seeing a huge debate on the campaign trail about who is really looking out for those people. We will always protect Americans with pre existing conditions. We're gonna take out. We'll yeah, it was going to say the president has said if you lose coverage for pre existing conditions that is really Democrats fault. I guess what? Since since they blocked his attempt to rework the Affordable Care Act. Does that hold water? No. In fact, it's confusing and end it's wrong by and large. This administration has worked pretty aggressively to roll back. Some of those protections for people with preexisting conditions to allow a much different kinds of plans that allow for different pricing discrimination to be sold. Republicans have tried to pass legislation repealing the old law. Republicans won't let up whatsoever in our determination to repeal this terrible law. And replace it with the condom reforms that will truly address the problems. It was meant to Saul when they couldn't repeal the lot outright. They tried to pass different laws that would change limits that were put on premiums and other protections for some of the most vulnerable people. Well, then just so we're clear about what we're looking at here. Maryalice, I mean, what would happen if Democrats won the house? What would happen? If Republicans kept the house like what are the stakes here? It's harder to know. With republicans. What we know is what the administration is actively doing. And if they had bigger majorities in congress. They may be able to do so many things faster Republicans running for office by and large having offered a lot of policy proposals other than repealing and eventually replacing what's what's currently in. No one wants to say what they're going to replace it with. It's tough to campaign. That's and we know it's tough to campaign on and we know that that Republicans kinda swung whiffed on that. And on the other hand, they've also been targeting Democrats and saying that poses that Democrats are putting out our to radical are too big to sweep Bank. Congressman O'Rourke is proposing socialized medicine, the federal government in charge of your healthcare and your doctor because Democrats are proposing things like an early buy into Medicare expanded Medicaid, the possibility of public health insurance option that would create more competition in the market place. But would be a government health insurance option for people to buy. And then of course, you have sort of the Bernie Sanders types who are pushing for an eventual Medicare for all single payer type system, so not necessarily just saying we're going to defend the Affordable Care, I perhaps push it farther as well. Maryalice parks. Thanks for keeping us in the loop in q. And let's talk about one midterm race in particular has as much as we talk about the house, a real bellwether for each party could be a Senate race like this one in North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp has been fighting for her political life. She is one of several Democrats up for reelection in states that were dominated by President Trump. Let's go to ABC congressional correspondent Mary Bruce. She is in North Dakota right now where exactly are you Mary? I am in Manta door North Dakota Heidi Heitkamp's hometown population. Brad of roughly seventy people I'm parked outside the VFW here a building that her father actually built Heidi. Heitkamp is one of seven children. She likes to joke that they are ten percent of this tiny town, seventy people. Okay. Well, we've been seeing Heitkamp slipping back further in these polls, right, especially after she voted against spread cavenaugh. If this were political decision for me, I certainly would be deciding this the other way Joe mansion in West Virginia voted four cavenaugh. He's. He's not really a sure thing. So I guess I'm wondering even in a Blue Wave type atmosphere can a democrat win in these red states. She is arguably the most vulnerable democrat right now. And remember if Senate Democrats aren't able to take this seat if Heidi Heitkamp loses it becomes really really hard to see a path for them to actually take the Senate. She is behind in the polls right now her her opponent Republican opponent. Kevin Kramer has been pulling ahead. It seems. But remember the last time Heitkamp was up for reelection. She was down by double digits, and she's still pulled it off. So so what does this tell us then about the larger Senate race, if she is kind of the bellwether for if she loses Democrats don't have a prayer? What are we seeing from other Democrats than in these honorable states? Look, it is really hard right now to be a democrat in a deep red state, especially these states where Donald Trump won by double digits. I mean, just look at what's going on in Missouri right now, you have Senator Claire mccaskill making this closing argument. In this ad where she says glares, no one of those greasy Democrats. She works right in the middle and hind capo. That's the final pitch a radio ad where someone flatly says, no, I don't always agree with Claire mccaskill, but she works hard. You don't have to like her. So in those deep ran don't have to like her that that's the pitch and Laker. That's the argument here. Look, hey, you don't have to like her just vote for because she's arguing that she is not necessarily what you would think of as a typical democrat. And that's the pitch that she feels she has to make in a state that is so read where Donald Trump is so popular. All right, Mary. I know you'll be tracking all those Senate races. So we will see back in Washington soon. Thanks, brad. For years you've had rumors about top college basketball programs that some star players aren't just getting nice locker rooms an extra tutoring. They're getting straight up paid let's against the rules. Of course, the NCWA has resisted calls to pay these players despite its own March madness broadcast deal being worth ten billion dollars. But what if it's not the colleges that are technically paying them will yesterday in New York jury convicted three men of funneling cash from sneaker companies to players and their families as long as they went to the right school? They call it pay for play. And this case had already rocked the sport. Legendary coach Rick Pitino out at the university of Louisville. Eat comes just one day. After college basketball was in snared in a sweeping bribery and corruption case announced by the FBI. He's still denies he ever knew about these schemes and last night the head coach for Kansas Bill self said, I don't see this as being distraction in a promise you you will not be an excuse if. Do not perform well at all. It's going to Ryan Smith. He's an ABC news legal analyst. He is also the co host of ESPN's outside the lines. And Ryan could you just back up a little here? What was so huge about this case? Well, this case is such a big case because it essentially is a referendum on whether the pair play schemes that we hear about the go on in college basketball, whether or not those are illegal or not so essentially, this was a case that the federal government brought against three basketball insiders to connected with the Dita's and one sort of a would be agent that involved getting players to coordinate with shoe companies pay them money to get them to play for particular schools that Adidas presumably backed so one of the schemes described in this as a potential would be agent contacts, a shoe company that wants to have a relationship with this say, maybe a future star NBA player and financial advisers, circling blue chip prospects, like coyotes and have them go to this. Regular school where that school. Where's that shoe companies apparel and employees of one of the world's largest sports where companies secretly funneling cash to the families of highschool recruits to get them to go to the school? And then the hope is that not only will that individual. If they go to the NBA son with the shoe company, but also signed with the money managers and agents involved. The government is saying the schools didn't know anything about this. But the criminal conduct for the government is that these three individuals defraud the university into giving scholarships to these players that they arranged payments for to go to these schools. So essentially the defendants in this case had said, look our conduct. We did make some of these payments are conduct may have been wrong may have been CD may have been against NCAA rules, but it's not criminal conduct. This verdict showed exactly what the federal government wanted that. Yes. If you do these kinds of pair play schemes if you're doing things like trying to funnel tons of money and. Envelopes to recruits or bidding wars involving a potential player at one point from one school, then you will face criminal conduct charges, and you will face verdicts against you. Well, so I don't know anyone who surprised that this might have been happening. There's just so much money in college basketball, but is the game going to change because of this. So you would expect the NCAA would be all over this. Now, what the NCAA has been saying is we are watching. We are seeing what happens, and then we will respond, but you've got a lot of NCAA naysayers out there, and critics who have said from the very beginning all of those charged contributed to a pay to play culture that has no business in college basketball. The NCAA is letting this stuff happen, and despite a conviction, you might not see a whole lot of action from the NCAA, and that when you think about it is stoning on some level, and these three defendants are expected to appeal. Adidas says respects the jury's verdict that it cooperated fully and strengthened its internal processes and the answer. Says these men did commit crimes, but it will not come into anymore, noting that there are more corruption cases on the federal docket right now. Ryan, thanks for breaking it down for us. Thank you. And one last thing yesterday, if you were walking around in Cameron, North Carolina might have noticed a humvee, you know, a car just falling from the sky it landed in this wooded area between two houses ABC's. Louis martinez. Covers the Pentagon and says yes, this was an actual humvee from the actual army two tons and it came out of military plane. Well, it's attached to three parachutes, and it's supposed to have rolled down out of the back of a C seventeen. See the thing to know here is that Cameron is right next to four drag and the army was trying out something. So this was planned totally plan. This was a test. This new payload system that they were using they just happen to attach the humvee to it because they wanted to see if it could carry heavyweights, but then the parachute that supposed to help ease the humvee out just deployed by itself and a free falling humvee can essentially become a two ton bomb. But the military says those parachutes opened in time and let it float into some trees if it hit home forget, it totally different story. But hey, it could have been worse in nineteen sixty one. A beef stew two broke up near Fort Bragg and fell on a farm. Decades later when it was all declassified, we found out a nuclear bomb was inside nearly detonated. But it didn't. What's more likely being that lottery winner or having a humvee fall on you from plane someone please do the math tweet the answer at me at start here? ABC you can start here. Tomorrow just hit.

So this Ellen Story About Ellen being a bad person, a mean person and all that it keeps growing and growing Bob Garrett Brad Garret him sorry. Not Bob Gear Bob Garrett is. Is a guy in new from grandparent's hometown. Jonesboro Louisiana. Brad. Garrett. tweeted something about Ellen has always been rude and pinned everybody knows it or something like that and then. The Carolina I mean the not caroline. Ray. But the The lady from Caroline in the city, which was an old TV series Shuzo impact in the future. trying to remember her name anyway she she commented on it and said so true. So now some of the celebrities are saying Ellen's mean with all of the people working for her and there and saying that that. The producers are sexual harassers and all this the take that out of it if it's Alan. And she's the boss. And she's not sexually harassing. She's not doing anything like that. She's just being rude and the stories I've heard about her. She's rude, right? Yeah. Nobody has said she's broken the law anyway or tortured anybody or anything like that. She just a mean rude boss well, get a helmet. Well I know that it comes off as hypocritical coming from Ellen like she's not the way she portrays herself on it, but that's been the case since the beginning of Showbiz. You know it's just there has always been a you know a way to run and tattle on the person. I'm not a big Fan of Ellen personally, but I think I. Think she's talented I think she's she's great. Wishy does But I've heard these stories for years from people who've who know somebody who's been around her and that she acts. not so nice. But I isn't that just something that you learn from when you're when you're coming up through the workforce is that you you're gonNA work for people who suck and then you try to get away from those people get another job grow. You know. Yeah. Yeah. But the claims are much more serious against the producers. Yeah. Then just being like a rude right that sounds constable work environment. That's why I said take all that out of it and just what Ellen has been accused of being is basically a rude mean purse. Yeah. But a lot of bosses that way. Yeah. So, do you think people just come down her more because she portrays herself as being? So Sweden and so down to Earth thin that absolutely. It's peeling the curtain back and at shocking. Yeah. And we love to tear people down I. Mean that's what the Internet is about. I. Mean I don't yet. but they say that Porsche is very sweet. Allen's wife Porsche is that right but I'm heard is that she's very very sweet. She seems Icier Than Ellen. Maybe Ellen tells her to be icy so she can be make people think you're icy and not me. Yeah. Now, the way ace does. What he does get. Tells me to sound arrogant and also nobody knows it's him. SPERLING I know. And you know what else I realized. I was supposed to be doing a story about the baseball season Covy it, and all that stood I went off on Ellen Yeah worth that means is I guess we'll have to do the baseball story.

Coming up on the and TJ, show all of these stories that we get. When there are, there's a reuniting of long lost siblings are a long lost mother. Or father it's always so heart warming and it makes the good news. Good News. but I have a question about it. That could bring some some some bit of A. Dark cloud over the situation. Not specifically saying. My way of looking at it you know you put yourself in that person's position. So. It should be pretty funny. I must say. So that's coming up at a close to seven twenty, eastern six, twenty central. That's what. So There's a major league baseball coach. He's a bench coach. I don't know how many times you know what the bench is doing that it needs to do differently. Know exactly how you would. You would coach inanimate object. But still he's makes a handsome living at it I'm sure. Bob. Geren is his name. He was caught pulling his mask down. To cough in the Dugout Omega. Which of course, defeats purpose of mask. And they say he didn't cover his mouth or anything. He just pulled a masks down coughed and with mass back. So now they're expecting Cova, did to break out all over the Major League Baseball. And ruining the season because all these other teams have already several of them have experienced cove it outbreaks in the light. But this one. This is the worst one yet. Now, the mask on the field while you're playing is optional. But off the field it's mandatory. So he was wearing the mask, but I don't know if anybody told him, it was mandatory to leave the mask on every second. Everybody. I don't think he heeded that warning there from the wonderful rapper. Dj Anonymous. From new, Orleans that we don't know. It keeps mass on. Q. Magin the hard time that this is. Bubble wrap canceled culture given this guy. Now this somebody pope made this story. Yeah. There's video of it, and the whole thing is going viral video of him, pulling his mass down coffee and putting the mass back up I get. It's a funny clip like to see somebody pulled the mask off to cough but come on like making it a whole stories. Ridiculous. Completely well, I mean that's what the whole thing is. You know it's Making sure that you shame as many people as possible to get them to do exactly what she wanted to do. I wear I put the mass on. Yeah. Sometimes I got I got a massive a pocket. Did And If they say you put mass on to come in the store or whatever. Then I put the mass on. Unless I I can do without whatever it is in that store. Then I'll go on about my business. So basically, the only time I wear is at the liquor store. because. You know it's run by the government and governor says you gotTa wear masks. And I gotTa have what's inside also on now trending with bringing. To Mass. Would put a space helmet on if they told me to. Get in there and get that peanut butter. We'll do naturally elicits more.

Friday, October 5: Confirmation Bias

"It's Friday October. Fifth, Jeff flake one of the week, he got it. Everyone feeling better. Now we start here. Republican senators, call it vindication. Democrats call it a sham. There's no sense of integrity in that type of a rigged operation. The FBI present, it's Cavanaugh findings how many minds change. But there are really only three that matter Russians indicted for hacking, but this time not an election very much. Don't mess with Russia moment wasn't the only one, the worldwide crackdown on an elite hacker crew. And what happens when the birds in your town have a drinking problem, they literally get trunk. Why these birds are getting blasted wreaking havoc. From ABC news. I'm Brad milkey. Let's get you up to speed for the day ahead. Are you hiring with indeed you can post a job in minutes set up screener questions than zero in on your shortlist of qualified candidates using an online dashboard. Get started today at indeed dot com slash podcast that's indeed dot com. Slash podcast. The FBI sent its documents in the dark to thirty Thursday morning and throughout the day in a private secure room senators got their chance to see what agents had gathered. One of the first to enter. It was democrat, Dianne Feinstein. She examined transcripts at the questions and answers about accusations of sexual assault and misconduct by supreme court nominee Brett Cavanaugh. And later that morning she stepped to a Mike good morning. Everyone I'm and said, this is not gonna fly. I can't talk about the detail because this remains a confidential part of the background report. But what I can say is that the most notable part of this report is what's not in it. She confirmed what we've been told by various sources at ten people contacted nine interviews. None of them with Christine Blasi Ford or read Cavanaugh. Now Kavanagh has staunchly denied all these allegations overnight. He published an op Ed in the Wall Street Journal. Calling the accusations wrongful and vicious. He said about his testimony. Quote, I'm not have been to emotional at times. I know my tone was sharp, and I said, a few things I should not have said to critics who painted him as prejudiced against Democrats. He said, I'm not on a side here. I'm pro law. Judge the constitution Republicans quickly came forward and said, you had nothing, then you have nothing. Now guy is clear. Let's do this. And that was absolutely zero cooperation with any of the allegations. They followed leads from interviews that made sense to me. I'll be proud to vote to advance this nomination tomorrow that set up the difficult decision really for a handful of undecided senators. By the end of the day, North Dakota, Democrat Heidi Heitkamp made up her mind. I will be voting, no one judge Cavanaugh, but Kevin fate still hangs in the balance with three undecided Republicans. And as we post this, we were about thirty six hours from the vote to confirm him. Let's talk to one of those voters right now. Democratic Senator from Oregon, Jeff, Merkley joins us from the capital and Senator. Have you actually gotten chance to see these findings with your own eyes? Yes. I have reviewed the FBI documents. What was that? Like? There was just the one copy? Yes, is just a a single report and it split into a two to three page memo on each of the interviews they conducted. So because. Are not willing to make any copies of it. It means that when there were roughly twenty of us in the room, there was two to three senators huddled around each of the documents and upon finishing reading it would pass it on to the next group of senators and have all the documents rotating around the room simultaneously. So what was your reaction to the findings themselves? Well, think about this. The idea was to give fair due diligence to the information that might corroborate the the experiences related to the Senate by Dr Ford and by miss Ramirez. And yet the FBI did not talk to a single one of the eight individuals that Dr Ford said had corroborating information. They did not talk to a single one of the twenty individuals that miss Maria Ramirez provided. And so it was clearly the investigation under the rules given by the White House. They call it a scoping document honor that scoping document the FBI was did not do anything close to what you would call a fair review of the of the available information but Senator they talked to twenty or fifty people and they didn't find anything. Would you then say, what will they gotta talk to fifty one people? What would nothing be enough for you until they found hard evidence against Brad Kavanagh will put yourselves in the role of the to these two women who came forward who were were told that the FBI investigation was being reopened in order to check and see if there was information that could corroborate their their explanations, sir experiences, but then the FBI doesn't talk to anybody that they provide who has that information? And let me give you another example here. One of the individuals on the list for miss Ramirez was Kenneth oppled. Now he is a professor at Princeton theological seminary. He was a sweet made with Brad Kavanagh. He remembers very clearly hearing about this when it happened of when Brett Cavagnaud exposed himself to her during their freshman year. And he also related that story to his roommate when he was in the first year of graduate school and the FBI didn't talk to him. It's clear the administration put out a very short list of people to talk to in the scoping document, but no one would actually provide any supporting information for these two women that is absolutely unjust unfair. There's no sense of integrity in that type of a rigged operation in that example, that is somebody who heard about it from somebody else. I mean, who who decides who is a decent witness here, Democrats have told the White House. You shouldn't have politicians interfering with law enforcement, but now you guys are trying to tell the FBI who is a legitimate witness. They should talk to actually the instructions on on who could be interviewed, came from the White House. It's if the FBI was pursuing this on their own, they would have talked to those individuals and found out what they knew, how they knew what they would have reported on all that they would have. They would have consulted. They have tons of agents. They could have had one agent talk to all twenty eight of them. They were instructed not to and we will talk more about that process in a bit Senator Jeff. Merkley. Thanks for the time. You're welcome. Let's talk about how this is playing in the capital right now. ABC senior congressional correspondent Mary. Bruce. Spent a lot of yesterday sprinting around the hallways, Mary Hebron. So regardless of what Jeff Merkley thinks or what the rest of Americans think only three Americans are really likely to decide this right, Jeff, flake, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski is this investigation good enough for them, but we have been watching their every move hanging on their every word they have been coming and going here on the capitol. And what's been really fascinating is to see two of these key undecided votes. Susan Collins of Maine, Jeff flake of Arizona. They seem satisfied so far with what they've seen now, we still don't know their final decision. Are they a yes or no? On judge Cavanaugh, but it is interesting. You had Susan Collins told reporters quote, it appears to be a very thorough investigation and Jeff flake who, of course, demanded the FBI. Do this investigation to begin with after you'll recall he had that very dramatic confrontation will with with some female protesters. It doesn't matter what happens. Jeff flake is now sounding positive after seeing the report. Robbery. What is it been like at the capitol Mary, I, I know we've seen protests over immigration and healthcare, but since the election of President Trump, I can't think of an issue that has been more visceral more personal yet you can feel the tension in the halls here as we roam around, trying to talk to people, protesters are everywhere. And it's not what you normally see or what we've seen in previous debates where you know, you have large protests that they're sort of planned and contained. We have those two. I mean, you've seen hundreds of people marching up to the supreme court taking over, you know, the ground floor of the Hart Senate office building. We have certainly seen that has dramatic. Would strikes me as different view of a lot of people directly confronting their senators, taking their argument directly to their representatives in saying, support, judge Cavanaugh, or don't support judge Cavanaugh. And you know, I, it's been interesting because as we go around and do our jobs and and talk to Senator. We've been being interrupted by protesters too, because the second see them, they pounce. They want to get their message in. Interesting. It really is tension that is rising on all sides. Here we're going to see a vote this morning around ten thirty eastern. That will be the vote to end debate which sets up the big one. The confirmation vote. That is right now Saturday evening, ish, Mary. Thanks a lot. Thanks, Brad. Well, let's get back to the central question of the week or these claims right or wrong. I want to bring in Brad Garret. He is a former FBI special agent. Now he's in a b. c. news contributor and Brad, forget the politics here from the outside as law enforcement. Does this seem like a serious diligent investigation? No, but the FBI wasn't allowed to do a serious diligent investigation. You have to understand the limited role. The FBI has in background investigations. They were given direction. I believe on who to interview, they don't really have the luxury of investigating this like you would normally. In other words, if you were handed this to me, I would say great. I would've spent several hours with judge cavenaugh several hours with Dr. Ford, probably several hours with Deborah Ramirez, and I would what I would do is sort of dissect their life in eighty two, or did you go? Who do you soci- it with? What kind of parties did you go to with fraternities. Do you belong to? How much did you drink? And we would go through this whole litany so I could get a really good picture of all three of them. The problem is that takes after you have those interviews, it takes weeks to pull this together to basically pull the environment together back in nineteen eighty to nineteen Eighty-three. It's doable, but it's going to take weeks to do what we heard from Jeff Merkley about scoping documents. Can the White House announce there won't be any restrictions and then turn around and tell the FBI, you know, turn certain witnesses away. Well, you know, this is another situation where you have the president saying certain things, and I think in reality something else occurring because let's face it. He's not running this day in and day out. His lawyers are in the White House. There's some behind the scenes there. There's clearly some behind the scenes because first of all, this was supposed to be a full blown investigation. The FBI would have said on the front end, if they were allowed that there's no way you could do this in a week. Week and so it it was very clear to me that this was a limited scope. Go interview the people. We want you to interview because they just wanted. I think what they wanted to do is say, look, we've talked to the players around judge cavenaugh back at that time, you know, and none of them could corroborate the sexual assault will Kurt. Well, that didn't shock me at all. But the point being is that you'll never get to maybe the right house navy, the right party until you started din fine other people, and you know, we both know that's not going to happen in this current environment once a once again, it's the question to these undecideds is a good enough, Brad Garrett. Thanks for the perspective. You're welcome. Take care. Next up. It looks like some arrests over doping. Then we realized what was really going on. Start here is brought to you by indeed dot com.

Get started today at indeed dot com slash podcast, that's indeed dot com. Slash podcast. Yesterday, the Justice department announced in an indicted seven, Russian nationals for hacking and this time the charges weren't about elections, Russia cheated cheated. They got caught. They were banned from the Olympics. They were mad and they retaliated. They're charged with wire fraud conspiracy, identity theft, money laundering. All is part of a scheme to retaliate against the organizations that exposed Russia's doping program for athletes. And in retaliating they broke the law. So they are criminals in this was actually just one part of a much bigger puzzle that all got laid out on the table yesterday, Eric Katersky is with ABC's investigative unit. And so Aaron, let's let's start with a doping thing. What were these Russians doing to the US? They were hacking into the world anti doping agency and the anti-doping agency here in the United States and in Canada, and they were exposing the personal medical information of Olympic athletes in. It was meant to. Embarrass, I think the United States, but also try and discredit the organizations themselves that had all banded together in order to bar Russian athletes who were using illegal substances from international competition, mess with Russia moment. A very much don't mess with Russia moment wasn't the only one. The defendants are charged with engaging in a lengthy and wide-ranging conspiracy to hack into private computers and networks around the world. These same hackers according to European authorities, also targeted the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons. And we know that chemical weapons have been an issue in Syria where the Russians have been operating. They also targeted a lab in Switzerland that had been looking into a Russian nerve agent. And so any organization that tried to undermine Russia seems to have come under attack by the military intelligence unit known as the GRU and so yesterday, then it wasn't just the US bringing charges then you're saying. Britain. It was a bunch of different countries all in the same day. It was a remarkably coordinated campaign that involved not only the US, but also the British, the Dutch, the Australians and the Australians played a role because they investigated the shooting down of a passenger jet with a missile over Ukraine. That was suspected to be the work of Russia backed militias end. It is rare Brad for the authorities to say publicly how they have coordinated to try and take down Russian hackers, but they put all of this information out there. On the same day, I think is a sign that they're determined to get at this and that it's an ongoing problem beyond the election hacking new indictment planes the Russian intelligence officers hacked. The Clinton campaign, the DNC and emails of Clinton campaign chairman, John Podesta. Well, I was gonna say, 'cause we talk about the election hacking all the time. We've talked about the GRU. Russian intelligence agency being part of that election interference. So are these all different things or they related like, what should we think about it? They're different. But we took note that three of the Russian hackers that were charged with hacking into the doping agencies were also named in the indictment from special counsel Robert Muller with hacking into the democratic computers during the election and guys same people. Three of the seven charged were were the same. And while the authorities didn't talk about it publicly, it wouldn't be surprising if this is something that the mother team may have come across during the course of its investigation, and maybe passed along to others and Russia is denying that they had anything to do with any of these multiple numerous charges coming from different countries and Turkey. Thanks a lot. Thank you. If you didn't know when you go today, the New York Times published its first big story of allegations against Harvey Weinstein. You could say the metoo movement is one year old and we talk about powerful men, accused of harassment and assault. Well, how about the most famous athlete in the wolf. Christiane if you haven't watched him play, you've seen him in a commercial flashing his washboard Avs, his insanely white teeth, an icon of masculinity will. Now he's being accused of rape by woman in Las Vegas, and suddenly his status as a global superstar could suddenly be in jeopardy. So let's bring in one of our favorite voices here. ABC's defacto soccer correspondent the voice of start here when I'm not around correspondent, Scott Goldberg has got, hey bread. And can you just put this in perspective for non soccer fans because we have sports stars in this country. But but besides LeBron James say, I mean, Cristiano Renaldo is like this next level, right? Well, and I think even if you're not a soccer fan, you probably know who this guy is. You mentioned the ads that are a big part of his brand. He'd features in a lot of advertisements. He's the third highest paid athlete in the world according to Forbes, he has more social media followers than any other athletes. He's a big deal. He's also one of only two players to win the world player of the year award five times. So to have these allegations hanging over his head to have him brought into the metoo movement is a very big deal. He's like an industry in himself. So what are these allegations? They allegedly happened here in the US, right? This is an American woman who alleges in two thousand nine. She was raped by Rinaldo in Las Vegas in a hotel there. She says, she signed a nondisclosure agreement with him and was paid three hundred seventy five thousand dollars to stay quiet. But because of me too because of what she says she's experienced just internally physically, she's been getting ill anxious dealing with all this and because she's been encouraged by other women to come forward and talk about it. She is doing that now and she's filed a lawsuit in. Civil court saying, she wants to have that nondisclosure agreement voided. So she is free to talk about on this criminal charges at stake to the Las Vegas. PD has now reopened its investigation, but Rinaldo is what categorically denied it. Well, Rinaldo says he firmly denies the accusations, but that wasn't the first thing. He said that's the latest Brad. When this first came out, it was published in the German publication Der Spiegel and at the time Rinaldo put out an Instagram video calling this fake news. It was kind of cavalier, but as the storm clouds gathered as Nike says, it's going to revisit its deal with Rinaldo valued at most. People believed a billion dollars or so his denials have been getting more forceful. And this is always the thing with soccer. Right? You've got your national team, but then you've got your club team and his talion club team is is stuck with them so far. Well, yeah. And this has been the subject of a lot of consternation on social media as well. First of all, Rinaldo was not selected to play for the Portugal international team. Right now. They're getting ready for some international games. They're not really hazardous. They are not saying that. But yeah, you put it into context and these are not really consequential games. It's not necessarily a surprise that Rinaldo would be left out, maybe get some younger guys a chance to play as far as you vent iskoe's. The club that pays him professionally in Italy, they tweeted that Rinaldo is shown in recent months, his great professionalism and dedication, which is appreciated by everyone at you vent as the events allegedly dating back to almost ten years ago, do not change this opinion which is shared by anyone who has come into contact with this great champion. So his club firmly standing behind him in a way. That actually is making a lot of people feel uncomfortable saying, none of this changes, anything, Scott Goldberg. We will hear from you again soon. I'm sure thanks Brad. And one last thing in Gilbert, Minnesota, something strange is going on. It just seems like there's more birds that are kind of swarming around your vehicles or running into windows. Yeah, birds dive bombing cars, buildings homes. We'd actually had somebody yesterday who had bird crashed through their window. It actually broke the window of their house. This is officer Chelsea condo, and I'm a patrol officer with the city and Gilbert. They've gotten dangerously close to people's heads and no, it hasn't gotten Hitchcock bad yet. With FOX acting strangely enough that the cops were getting questions. They were wondering what was going on with the birds. He talked to some local experts who said, oh, these birds are drunk. They literally get drunk. Utah at works reconnaissance. There are lots of berries in town this year. The frost came early and those berries sat in the sun for mentoring actually create an alcohol within the berry. So the birds come, they eat and then the start stumbling around in the air. We have no field sobriety tests for them. Unfortunately, now she says, most birds don't die from these collisions. They just get stunned. There's not really much to do then besides let them sleep it off. But we recommend putting if somebody's willing to my chief calls it a detox box, just a box with holes that the cat can't get within a couple of hours. It'll take a little nap and sober up. She could barely keep a straight face while she was telling me this tough day on the Gilbert beat something cool.

EXCLUSIVE: James Corden NOT in line to replace Ellen DeGeneres, Kim Kardashian focuses on family not Kanye West, Regis Philbin buried in private funeral.

"Hi, this is Lee, remedy and Mike Rinta and we are very excited to announce that we are finally doing a podcast. Yes, and the name is scientology. Fair game, Everybody Scientology Fair Game. And thank you to all of you because we tweeted out like, should we do a podcast whatever overwhelming? Yes. Amazing Response Listened to Scientology, fair game on the iheartradio APP apple podcast or wherever you listen to podcasts. Welcome to the north, but ny Shum your host ruptured with my friend Garrett Garrett. Their love. I wouldn't want to kick off my Monday, any other way with you in my basement. Thing you underneath your piano by apparently now that we're all recording from home, the best acoustics in my apartment are under my panelists I. Sit under the piano and we do the show. It's a fun way to do. It actually feels like back like. Being a little boy Heidi, the couch. It's. Palestinian sir is. Fancy club high. Bravo. And we've got like a wigwam sets up onto my piano, but there you go. That's the difference. Hey. Garrett. You know what time it is I believe he time. Look at that. We even did it. So I've got an exclusive to start the show, I'm a real life gossip reports. So I know there's tons of podcasts out there and we're not badmouthing them that great. But what makes us different is I actually do this for a living. That's right. I scoop around and get juicy juicy gossip and I've got a good one for use over the weekend Garrett, it exploded that James Corden. Corden was going to be taking over for. L. And it was all over the press. I. Hit the phones toll. Mike. James People including my people well, does that is absolutely not true. Let me tell you why quite clearly, and actually it's a pretty logical thing. James has a contract with CBS. So he's doing the late show for at least another two years. So that brings us. US Up to August two thousand and twenty two. He called walk away. If he wants to get Mrs. Well, I didn't know this Jiang's doesn't just have a contract with the late show, his production companies cold full, well, seventy-three. They have an overall deal with CBS. He's actually going to stop producing the Grammy Awards I think and also has been involved with the Tony Awards hosted both. Both the Tony's, and he's also I think because he hosted the grammy's, yes, he has. Also, he's going to be looking to do and nother Broadway here. Music will he did a Broadway play and he won the Tony? There's talk about him. Doing funny thing happened on the way to the forum, and he's also got a movie movie Korea into the woods. We GonNA talk about cats. that. was about to say please no more capsules. So He's definitely not doing it also too when I spoke to my ellen insiders pay said, she's got a contract to two more seasons. Think about this. It's SORTA makes sense when she understand TV, you can't just counselor show today and start one tomorrow for somebody to take over Ellen show would take monks, Drew Barrymore's talk show is launching in a couple of weeks they've been working on that for over A. A year, the graphics, the staff, their guests, the studio everything to build. It's a really long process. You conscious. Paul Ellen out and PLOP somebody in although I do hear room style tiffany. Haddish? Who would like a talk show. I think should be great. What do you think I think she'd be great but I think you need someone that would just be on that ellen equivalent, you know what I mean Ri-. Tiffany's the rising star. Ellen. Is a super. So also to my socio for Ellen said, this is much more complicated than you think because Allen like James, she has a big production deal too. So her ellen game of games that is produced by the same people that produce her talk show. It's tele picks that saw monster hit for NBC, and then think about a website of merchandising a youtube channel. We are talking hundreds of millions of dollars here. So I think there's US there and people like us. There were like just put Gordon. I'd like to see. George. Clooney to put. Hey, man, this is not happening. Inside Is Tell me the Ellen is planning to return to work on August twenty fourth to do game of Dame's, and then she's going to return to to do the Ellen show which premieres on September ninth. All the guests are already in that not dropping Garrett. You've got good story about celebrities and Ellen in just. Just a minute. So Allen is not going anywhere. Her executive producer over the weekend tweeted out. It's nobody is going off the air. I. Predict what's going to happen is they'll be a big investigation. There'll be a lot of people fired. They will be blamed for the toxic environment that has been claimed. Ellen will say she didn't know about this. She's very upset about it and I think. Think she will try and get out of this unscathed. It happens at a lot of places of work that I don't think are at like the boss normally doesn't take the full. It's the next year down. That always gets in trouble. Yes. Well, yeah, and we'll talk about that in a second. What Brad Garret we needing, but e you gotTa, you gotTa think but for for Ellen. Ellen to go back to the game I get the, maybe the game shows going to be delayed in airing versus her talk show. But her first statement has to be without. You know she can't just sweep it under the rug. She needs to come out when she films her talk show for the first time and explain what's going on because you can't just be like, okay. Let's bring. George Clooney Hello, he's my friend Jennifer Aniston. Funny. You should say that it's very interesting. Allen's outspoken about this. Ellen center an email to all her staff. But she didn't send it to the public and send it to the press. She's not Santa. She's not sat down with Oprah or holder. I'm told Garrett, your genius. That's what she's going to do. She's going to explain this on her show, which is not lives. If she doesn't like it, they can retype it. They'll type it as many times as they have to. I, guess it will be scripted teleprompter she. She might have a few little ellen jokes in bad but not being too funny dial tone. Just right. She will say that and then they will move on. Let's get to our poll question of the day. The exclusive James Corden is not in line. Once again, it's not in line. You're going to read it today, but it's not true. Everybody is not in line to replace Ellen. Degeneres, who would you rather watch that Ellen or James Votes on our twitter page, not nicer. All facebook page, leave a comment, naughty gossip and be to check back tomorrow to. Your results, what you accurate on Garra. All right. So we were just talking about this rod shooter. So they're celebrities that are speaking out against Allen and e mail that she sent out. Leah? Thompson Brad Garrett they pretty much said, they know people and friends that were on staff and it's no excuse. Sorry apology that Ellen put out to our staff really isn't gonNA, cut it, and you know Brad Garret even said, it starts from the top meaning starts with Ellen, and then it goes down from there in the sense of putting blame on people. So you know the more. No more than one who who were treated Horo Horribly Brad Garret new of. So N Leah Thompson said the same thing. It says true story. That's all she followed up ways. Defending CA yes. Have you seen any celebrities and interesting things? Scooter Braun now, Scooter Braun. He manages Arianna Grendade Justin Bieber. But if you ever watch ellen, you know those are guests that are constant. They have a very tight partnership. So it's interesting to see Scooter Braun take the the positive side with Ellen versus people who know the staff that are accusing the show of these bad things. So it's such a we. This is one of those stories that in the pandemic, it's it's. It's good to read about because it's not about the pandemic. It's just distract us, but it's not good for eleanor or the shuttle rhyming. Ask You about this guy, would you be brave enough to speak out? I. Don't WanNa put you on the subtle though I just did look I would like to. To think I would be, but I've kept my mouth shut maybe too often where do you feel personally on this I? Think you know at the end of the day, you WanNa do the right thing, and as long as you feel, the right thing is being done in your workplace There's nothing be sad like it's one of those things like don't poke your your nose in someone else's business. So unless it's happening to, you personally wouldn't do you pass like now I I you know it's Ellen's very powerful. She really is powerful, and if the show continues probably of this podcast. And if the show continues which I think it is by reporting said it's going to you know I didn't think Garrett's lear is going to be invited back as guest. You know who actually called Eleanor two years ago Kathy Griffin now. I. Know She's controversial. I know she riles everybody out emotions but Cathy said after Joan rivers died she wanted Allen to do a tribute to Joann Allen did not really like Joan or humor. She thought it was very mean very crass very course and Ellen wouldn't do it and And so there are going to be more stories about this. But I think there is so much money at stake here that Allen will probably survive. Let's move along. So Kim, Kardashian, is focusing on her family amid her marital woes Kim went to see cornea for probably like twenty four hours. It was not log. She's back, Ya and Mashes I went to a drive through would be was awfully fast, and now she's too. I, saving our relationship, don't take me dry throat. Just let's sit down and talk to sit. So she's back home with her children, Fleming Fifty Ponti for a grandmother. Mary. Jo who turned eighty six happy birthday birthday party with Mommy Kris Jenner all her children. They even got Mary Jo's friends tested. That could drive them in from San Diego, and they found her favorite piano player in San Diego. What's going on inside the ago? She should move everyone's coming in beautiful this. Piano play. Gabe had a lovely time is tell me the marriage is not good. In fact, it's pretty much over now. Kim. He's really focused on the family on those children. I. Guess. At some point, there's going to be some discussions hopefully, not a fight about who gets the kids here. I think this is going to get probably quite nasty. What do you think? would. Be. So. Let's say. Happens you know they get divorced. Imagine that separation where Connie is President Kim has to drop the kids off of the White House just since. This is. The world live at it, it used to. Swipes that we giggled that now it's real life. What's happened with our friend, Adele Garrett, she is just just like any of us a huge beyond, say fan now over the weekend beyond say on Friday dropped blackest king on Disney, plus if you haven't watched it, do yourself a favor. It's a great visual. And credited, Disney for going out and doing something different and allowing beyond to do that. But you know she. Adult just loves beyond say like I was saying. So they remember back in twenty seventeen, you know they. She won a Adele. Won The grammy for. Low brow things album of the yard. She wasn't. Yes. So you know and She just wanted to show beyond, say so much. You know love for being a fan as she was watching, no black gang, she's right next to the TV you know almost like mimicking. You know what Bianchi was. A little kid she breakdown Crimean Hof to like the story I think was that when she went for her? She. Thought beyond. Say should have won for lemonade says she broke her grammy in half and gave half to beyond say it's a true story Adele. Love. Wonder. Like? Do you really think they both have? Do I. Think it makes even more special when you get Adele's house and broken grammy the mantelpiece in the bathroom wherever she's got it, I. Think. It's Hafa grandma and he's such a great story because she could tell everyone other half of that grab. A is inquiry beyond says apart, but beyond that. You should go see. Wait. You're not friends with her like I i. think it's an exhibit. Everybody's talking about how? Adele looks whether it careful about looks on the show. We don't body shame all after we. That's why we make fun of us, but we did I think she looks incredible. I. Think there is concern that she is very skinny, Nash, she has blonde hair. She doesn't look very much like the Adele that we were introduced in many many years ago I, Say Dal? Make, yourself happy find happiness. You can do whatever you want personally. I. Bow use to the original version of Dal. But you know Oscar whatever she looks like she goes. As, long as the pipes don't change I'm all, she's that she's got. A little bit of sad news. Before we go to break regis who I know, you had a very special relationship with Garrett, he was buried over the weekend, a private funeral. So his brother, his son-in-law. Sorry, his son-in-law shed some loving words, just a couple of days after a private ceremony on the campus of his Mater, the University of Notre Dam demagoging through his staff. He died eighty eight years old. They were going through all these papers and they came across regis original. Original scripts? The he used when he was reporting on basketball gains for Legend's Mickey Mantle I. Mean This guy had seen it all. He had done it all. How how are you got you so touching and real last week talking about it. Have you been thinking about reaches this week? Now? Of course, and I think the you know they paid great tribute to him on on raw, Kellyanne Ryan over the weekend and even on ABC to it was cool because you know though. I respected the man tremendously. It was also great to go down memory lane and see all those moments that major loud and and made you WanNa get into this business and have fun and talk about you know your life and I've I've always like we do now kind of you know talk about, Hey, what you do and you know described describe a restaurant that no one really knows. But by you describing it It makes a hall, the Listener, or you're feel like they were there with you last week and I, think kids were saying the gay and he invented that before Regis and Kathy, Lee the host chats at the top of the show wasn't something that existed monologues assisted comedians would come out and and do a monologue. But that chats that was pretty much unscripted. Just what did you do last night was regis. It's. Such a simple thing that goes such a long way, and you also posted the most beautiful little video of you. As a child. You must be five or six when you were a guest on the show. Yeah. I, was I was always that kid like I was saying last week. My mom worked in the same building. So she was right next to the production office. Oh, you know if you ever are familiar with TV when a when they're putting together a segment for a show, they're always looking for people and they have people scheduled. If people drop out, they need backups. So I was always on the segment with each child therapist. That was that was always causing problem was I wouldn't listen. To. My parents and the doctor would explain things I should be doing in. It's one of those surreal, not so much that I was a bad kid. I, my son looks like. I thought it was Hudson. I didn't to look at it, and it was clothes that the clothes from a different era that I realized that I saw regis and he looked from a different era to I realized it was you wanNA treat to be a ranch such a legend.

Now at the trend reporter podcast, listen to the trend reporter on the iheartradio APP apple podcast or wherever you get your podcast. Welcome back to the majority. But I showed me has trump shootout with my co host and different Garrett Vogel Garret. Let's go to the polls the. Very. Official. So last show we talked about Ellen addressing the staff in a letter issue. Sorry or while she courts. And did she blame other? So the letter it was a little disappointing. She didn't take full ownership. She did sort of sort of push the blame on other people. Let's have a look at the results were fifty. Yes, she is sorry. No, she's blaming. Straight down, the middle. Bad. This Allen. Story has got people all riled up Garett. Yeah. Yeah. And it's interesting to see that how the vote fifty pretty much split right down the. Middle. Fifty. Fifty, I personally You know thought she was sorry. But I guess those are those other fifty percent think that you know she's just you know being fake from or whatever reason to Sophie hard when somebody that you? Really really like somebody that you're a fan of turns out to. Be The person that you thought a friend of mine. Once told may never meet your idols like if you're a superfan of somebody, never meet them in real life because the Madonna on stage for two hours. That's I'm a big fan of can't possibly be that interesting that extravagant in their regular loan fighter to a park. Should always be be late and the pardoning be over Madonna goes off disappointed you the most and it's not a mean thing I met Madonna I've interviewed her several times and she disappointed me not because she was actually mean to me, but because my expectations were too high I, felt like I was meeting the best friend somebody that I knew her name Madonna Louise Veronica Coney pen. Look I. I name like so she didn't know who I was at really like, oh, she doesn't know, but that's three routes I. Think it's a very strange relationship. Have you ever met anybody that you would just sorta like Gobsmack to if not, even in the our you mean, all the sauce I remember growing up to it I would. This is weird to say maybe I had premonitions but. Be, so. So I met. Bill. Cosby again. with my with my mom working at The same building, where Regis in Kenya Megyn Kelly, Work Bill Cosby was on the show. So I walked into the building with bill cosby and me growing up loving the comedy show just like billions of people did. You know I said Mr Cosby. Thank you so much. I would love to take a picture with and his person. You know typically goes you know, hey, not right now and he goes. I probably, any turns the person because he's not looking at me goes. What type of person would I be if I just tell this kid hell? No in you know what I mean. So he kind of was like saying like I I agree with you, but I got. So what can I sort of picture that you take it? Exactly. But so when in reality if all these hundreds of people weren't around, he would have told me held So I it was just one of those weird things strategy and you walked away going BOCOM. Be. Little, let's get nicest of the day. What do you? Yes. So Terry crews another apology. He's on the apology tour over the past pandemic to Gabrielle Union. Now, they both shared the stage on America's got talent one point So Terry crews, he he went onto twitter. Due to respond to many things especially to Gabrielle, Union's commentary on his recent criticism of the black lives. Matter. Movement. So here's what Gabrielle Union said. The only thing I know for sure is that Terry crews gets three checks from NBC, which is interesting and we all know if you speak up about racism and white supremacy, you absolutely can be shown the door union said who you know is no longer on America's got talent and there's court. You know there's legal battles going on over there. So good for you apologize again, Terry, but I do think part of apologizing here is understanding that it might not be accepted. You don't need necessarily somebody to accept your apology to do. So if you've done something that you don't feel good about apologized, don't worry about the response and Gabrielle. Union has every business. Every reason I guess here to not accept. Let's do notice that I not not molding all you Taylor swift haters including you a little bit Derek last week. So this album came out and use. that he wasn't really maybe one of her most popular albums. You thought it was very much a was a fan. It's for the fans. It's not for the University Oh, my God I I I love to. This, you should stop dykes making food. It's know what it is. Number One, it sold a whopping eight, hundred thousand units. Now, safety is the only artist in history to have seven albums, south Hoffa million copies or more in one week. Also, also, this album is her sixth consecutive album to sell over eight hundred thousand copies, h congratulations to Taylor swift enabled. You guarantee everybody else listen? I'm a fan I'm just saying if you've heard only her Taylor swift songs, it's going to be this. I quick nine months of robby. Robby. Robby gotTa Rob. So the best finishing, it was believing being smart as A. Traits, I thought being smart was something you were born with it was in your DNA, and you're looking to have the or not. In the focus I didn't have it. I was absolutely wrong. That is not what being smart is being smart is having the guts, the nerve, the courage to try. That's all that being smart is try interest you might succeed. Hey, we ran out of time. Thank you so much. Garrett's thank you for listening to the northern show prediction of iheartradio.
