N. dot gov forward slash team at T. E. M. A. I. individuals can go there and get information on how they access help but the governor in Tennessee is doing a good job we'll have the president on the ground tomorrow people are looking forward to having him there so that he can see firsthand so we're talking to sue us senator Marsha Blackburn and senator we saw also that your that the Tennessee governor had held a news conference this morning saying that Tennessee has the first confirmation of cold hit nineteen as well also from middle Tennessee talk about adding insult to injury as you guys are coping with the tornado damage you're also dealing with this covert nineteen outbreak that is correct in the state health department I had the confirmation on this case yesterday it is a forty four year old male he lives in Williamson County which is right outside of Nashville that Sir Brentwood Franklin area I he had attended an international conference which was held in the United States after he returned home he did not feel well so eventually as his system and his symptoms worsened he decided to go to take medical care and that is when he was tested and he is quarantined at home with his family now we we have seen some of the measures in places like China some of the European measures when it comes to this slowing the spread of cove it nineteen and and some other areas are taking pretty significant measures that we have not yet taken here in the United States one of which being the the UK government announcing that they're going to pay for people's sick leave from day one if they self quarantine image can you imagine every single taxpayer being on the hook for everybody's staying home from work in a two week or more self quarantine one one of the things I think said and we're receiving regular updates Dr sale team is doing a tremendous job N. ambassador Burke of leading the effort working with the vice president who is handling this they are very thoughtful they are getting information to us they are transferring information to your state and local health authorities and I certainly believe that the reason you have seen a slower spread here in the U. S. then you have in other countries it is because of the actions the president took immediately on restricting travel from China the restrictions have since placed on Italy and on South Korea analysts say also the actions that are being taken by many companies I know many companies are now placing our travel restrictions on individuals until we know more about the incubation time the covet nineteen and on the the symptoms how long the disease last things of that nature some people are are of the of the mindset senator Blackburn that the corona virus outbreak could have an effect on the the upcoming presidential election of the presidential nominating process though with with Bernie Sanders now out and he was or or at least seemingly mathematically out I don't wanna say these out loud but seemingly mathematically out it will I I would have thought he would have done better on super Tuesday as he is the man who is advocating for universal health care and that would be something that that some supporters of Bernie Sanders think would help when it comes to the outbreak of of the corona virus are are you surprised that or or are you concerned that the corona virus could have an effect on the process of electing our next president I I don't think that it will I think that knowing Tennesseans and I think many Americans are like them and they feel that our country three is when you look at the issues of security whether it is economic security national security border security and access to services like healthcare and making certain that we are addressing issues like the environment with clean air clean water that many of the stepsisters ministration have take has taken our steps in the right direction and they are pleased with that and people are going to go to the polls they are going to vote for Donald Trump it looks like it is said to senator Marsha Blackburn a Republican from Tennessee and I I wanted to kind of learn the last question here Fauria switch topics kind of a hard pivot here one of your colleague senator Marco Rubio left a video message on his Twitter page last night let me just play a portion of this you can see what he's advocating here and I'll get your reaction things

Musk is tweeting that he's offering a thousand dollars off if you buy a tesla solar and power wall system you don't have to depend on the grid when the grid goes dark guys Jane just in terms of of of thinking that it's excessive to have these shutdowns these power outages is can they argue that when some of these fires may have very well been been started by lines that weren't shutdown well yes That is the conundrum what kind of got technology in and modeling are using to make these decisions certainly they will argue there would have been more fires or worse fires if they hadn't done the outages it's an iffy thing becky Jane thank you for more on the mounting pressure California utilities companies let's welcome Congressman Democrat California whose district includes communities Silicon Valley Congressman. Thank you for joining us this morning good morning good morning it's a terrible situation we can talk about the business side of this we could talk about the the human side of this I just give us an update on what you know and then I wanna get into what you think should happen well it's devastating for many people across -fornia many are without power of course homes have been destroyed by these fires totally unrelated I actually a staff member in my district who had a fire that almost burned his house not because of the wildfires because pg another outage so these PG lines that are causing fires aren't just using fires in wildfires this is a common occurrence across California and it's outrageous and in terms of how to manage p genie. What would you do I would have them as a public utility the facts are very clear they have failed to make investments in the upgrading of their infrastructure the regulators have been way to lose there's not enough accountability it's time for the state to take ownership of PG and make sure that they are doing what they need to do to keep the power on and to keep people safe I mean in the twenty th century when you have a state that has apple Google Tesla in it there is no excuse that we can't get power to our people on a regular basis congressman I'd argue that there are decades and decades of underinvestment in the infrastructure there if the state takes over where do you get the money to make those much needed aspirant's what we need to have stayed investment and we also need to have federal investment the reality is that we have underinvested in the smart grid we have under tested both of the state and federal government but those are investments that will that were needed and we need to invest more in forest management we did not have the prescribed fires that were necessary we did not have the brush clearing that was necessary this has been a decades of neglect process that has led to this crisis do you have any idea how much you might need for that systematic neglect in the infrastructure and in the forest management we're gonNA leave the conversation there congressman appreciate you being with US thank you for having me

"To respond. I remember going. Look at what is she going to say, you know, I service you know, you trusted because I wanted to meet and tell you, I'm so sorry, I feel a lot lighter from being here like counseling session, but I feel better. So thank you, like a healing. All right. Let's talk about Cato. Keta you Email him to get him to do this podcast where you surprised by his response. I don't think I was surprised by his response. I was surprised by his response time, which was almost immediate high. Yeah. Can to this like that was the energy God in, like heart emojis. And the smile emojis. It was interesting to me, Kato, and I never really had a conversation before what was it like talking one on one after all these years. I had my beliefs about him when he was justifying, I, I was annoyed by him bugged me that he was just such a jokester. What do you think happened to him on the stand? I think that he was probably nervous uncomfortable. I don't know that I thought he was trying to ham it up. I think that he is young guy who's probably really nervous and intimidated and scared, and he was kind of an important witness in testifying in the biggest trial of our century, I think being in the courtroom. General is really was was was difficult. I don't think we can ever really explain to people what that felt like you come into this room. It's, it's pretty small. If the prosecutors defense attorneys, the killer, the judge the families, and you had the jury that had a lot of disdain for anybody that wasn't on the defense. So, you know, I can appreciate that he was probably like a nervous Nellie of there. Well, you know, kiddo did know that there was abuse, and certainly Marcia Clark could brought that up without Kato because Jay pled no contest to spousal abuse. Do you think that more should have been made of that I feel like a lot was made festive violence, but I think that you either think it's bad and it can lead to murder or you don't I think that there's lots of people that excuse it and think it's on my business or that's between the couple. I don't know if putting what? What I look what happened early domestic violence didn't have much of an impact on this case. So I'm not sure if Marsh having more people say they saw it would have made a difference. What about to sharply till shortly boy, talking to her after all these years and learning that she was so sad about all of it? I just wanted a hugger the whole time heart broke for her. I knew that she'd been carrying around a lot. I just wanted to make her feel better. She's, she's definitely got some cracks. And I wish and hope that she could heal from it. Marcia Clark says she's a liar. And she wasn't essential to my case, and Joe shy flea says that Marcia Clark said you ruin my case glue. My case you and I was an honest person on my head people saying, I was we did a lot of research wouldn't see any sort of evidence that would make you say she wasn't a truthful person. What? Our parents, tell us, you know, there's three sides to every story and somewhere in the middle of Marcia story. And Joel story is the truth. I think we will never ever know what actually happened and why she was never put on the stand for real, but that was Niro wear tabloid magazine shows were out, and we have cash in hand. Hang for every single interview, they could we offered money to sell stories. I mean you just did or you didn't. I mean Rudd her doing it had a ripple effect. It was helpful for me to hear her. Tell me that selling story was regret. 'cause I've, I've held onto that for a really long time. So I was grateful to have that time with her. I think she needed that. I think we both had it was your intention to explore this to confront this for yourself. And yet in interview after interview you're the person, comforting person, you talk to quite honestly for a long time. I didn't really. Care about being people's confessional. I didn't have any room in my heart to do that. So part of this podcast is been a little bit about opening my heart and letting people share with me, their experiences in kind of giving each other some, love and attention and hugging compassion. I don't know that I went into it thinking one way or another. But I leave these meetings in these conversations feeling like. just a month ago. I did a field trip for twenty five Danish high school students who actually learn about the OJ case in school and their teacher there on a trip to California. They went to Alcatraz and they went on the OJ tour. It's mind boggling, the huge effect this has had on culture. There's one last thing that we do on the OJ tour to, you know, keep it we talked about a lot of grim subjects, but I'd like to end on a joke. This is the OJ joke. Book tell couple Jay jokes here. What's OJ's favourite piece of kitchen furniture? The butcher block. Famous LA dodger..

I've heard a lot of sick and disgusting stuff yawn. My skin is pretty thick. It shouldn't be. But it is. So did you know that they existed? Yeah, I don't think I knew that particular one. I remember the handful of years ago is taking my son to see Shrek at the Pantaleon theater down in Hollywood. And as walking along into my right? Was this traveling stand or whatever? And this guy was handing out pamphlets, and he handed me one and it was the OJ Simpson murder trial to her or something to that effect. We angry were you shocked? I don't know. You know, roast out.

No. They knew each other from the neighborhood Brentwood is a pretty small bedroom community. They probably ran in the same circles in coffee shops, Jim but beyond that, there was no romantic involvement between the two of them. I remember when we needed to empty out my brothers apartment after he was killed that I found they were like electric rolodexes back in the day before we had our cell phones. Yeah. And I remember seeing her name in there. I think it was Nicole. And then it's SIM P and I remember being nervous and thinking ago. I don't know what this means. I showed it to my dad, and we just kind of looked at each other than I just handed it to the detective that's as much as I know about the two of them having a relationship, a lot of people have exploited and profited off the case. I mean that's no surprise to you. Some people made a name for themselves just by being associated. With it. Yeah. I mean, I think people always wanted to think about Cato, Cato, Calin in that regard Kato, you know, went on to be a household name and celebrity in his own rights, ladies and gentlemen. Joining us now on dean and Raj show. Kato. He's here on the movie set, but he doesn't have a part hit. Okay, Lynn is touring. The east coast, visiting catos one that was out there in the limelight.

Whereas Kato embraced. We're going to the to likly tennis club and spa to sit down with Kato kaylin. He has seemed to be super excited to get together. He is a little bit.
