Lebron James' Multi Million Dollar Contract and the Mindset Required to achieve this
"Moody's welcome back to the behind. You murder podcast. My name is yash akron is a day. We are exploring the bron. James the bron james arguably the greatest athlete to ever leave do not ask me has signed a two year contract extension worth eighty five point. Seven million dollars with the la lakers. That works out to be three point. Five seven million dollars per month one hundred and seventeen thousand three hundred ninety seven dollars per day. Four thousand eight hundred and ninety one dollars per hour. Eighty two dollars per minute and let me remind you that this is in. Us dollars for oh my ozzy's and international listeners. This will convert to be a lot more in your currencies. Now i share this with you for a reason. And i challenge you to join me on a journey back to lebron's chart who'd to start with even if you do not follow basketball. This story is for you. The bronco up in akron ohio where he was not brought up in a civil plateau. He had a lot of difficulties growing up as do a lot of other people in the world as he says openly he saw drugs guns and killings. In retrospect he was not supposed to become an outlaw in life. He was supposed to become a statistic that was. he's reality. that was the reality of most of the people. He surrounded himself with as he knew no better and ultimately they knew ner better. It wasn't until the browns football coach entities life at offer to give him a her before that the bronze law was up in the air. He bounced around from house to house on a consistent basis but once frank walker. Lebron's coach offered him this amazing opportunity and displayed a genuine interest in the bronx future. Everything changed just think about how important your environment is for your success. Imagine if this special man wasn't in his life and decided to not take a chance on him. Imagine if lebron stayed on the streets and began to get involved with the drugs and alcohol he got surrounded with where would he be right now i can confidently say that he's potential would be down the drain. Now wanna challenge you before. I continue on with the rest of the story. What's your environment luck and is sitting you up for success in my personal experience. Mine wasn't which is why. I devoted a lot of my life. Growing up to disassociate myself from the negative influence that saran with and began to walk on my earn path. I began to listen to positivie and slowly. Unlock reality of what's possible. Be honest with yourself if your environment is negative and toxic and constantly bringing you down or not allowing you to excel and explore the potential. You have. I consider that you begin to shift. And it doesn't have to be very small consistent winds add up. It could literally just mean plugging in some earphones and listening to some podcasts. It could literally mean not listening to mainstream media anymore. It could even mean borrowing a book that genuinely interests year and beginning to read. If we compare this to what happened in lebron sloth. Just think about how much simple that shift was for his entire future. Let me rephrase that. Just think about how much that simple shift changed his entire future. Allow yourself to pose this episode and think in peace and quiet about this as it's genuinely servadio polls the episode. Now this is where all continue on with the story because this is the perfect segue. Let's travel back in time to the point. Where frank lebron's coach brought him in to a new life before this point. Lebron didn't even scratch the surface of his potential in basketball. He was focused primarily on american football. It wasn't until someone new came into his life and poured belief and confidence into a young lebron. Now that's all i'm yes. Lebron would have been fortunate for someone taking a chance with him but he would not have been able to see the future of truly. How impactful that single event was for his entire life. This is the area. I really want to explore with you and stay with me with this. Lebron james was nine years old. When he first picked up a basketball he would have had a genuine curiosity about the sport and consistently would have improved game when being asked what he wanted to become when he was older at school he would have said a professional athlete or an nba player. Have a wild guess about what the response would have been to that answer. I'm sure you already know. Are they would have been a lot of disbelief from teachers. And even his parents and friends to say the least no one would have believed in him except for frank walker so he went to work he would play and trained every day. But the point. I'm getting at now to tie. A bird to this. Entire episode is that he would have detached himself from the outcome. He would have detached himself from the outcome. Now let me share. What i mean by this. He had talent and the more he trained the more people who got to see this genuine potential which therefore would have poured even more belief into a young lebron james but when he first picked up a basketball yes he had admirations would've visualize himself playing in the nba but he hatched himself from all of that and just put the working on a daily basis a nine year old lebron james even a thirteen year old sex toler bron james would not have been able to predict that twenty plus years into future he would be getting paid. Eighty five point seven million dollars over two years. This is a very important success principle for you to understand no matter what passions you have an no matter what you were working towards this applies to you because just imagine if lebron james continually thought about being in the nba to start with little learn getting paid forty plus million dollars per year. He would have instantly been overwhelmed and never taken the necessary. Small daily actions to get there. Because he would have been too fixated on how far away he is from that goal. Let me repeat that he would have instantly been overwhelmed and never taken the necessary small daily actions to get there. Because he would have been too fixated on how far away he is from that ultimate goal. I'm sure you have big vision. And so do i but if we constantly well about it we will never take action. Imagine if lebron james constantly compared himself at the age of ten to someone that has been playing in the nba for five years he would have given up instantly and this is not an absurd comparison because it happens to so many people sermon. People think like this. Don't worry about the ages. You do not have to be ten years old to begin a new chapter new life. I really want you to focus on the principle that i'm sharing with you today. The more you begin to study successful people the more you realize how success leaves clues. This is what i want you to do. And i cannot force you to do this no one can but if you genuinely wants to begin shifting your life these are the necessary steps involved simple firstly visualize yourself positively living the life that you aspire to live just lot how lebron james would visualize himself in the nba now begins to think about reverse engineering that goal back down unto what you can do today. Now it's important to think about what you can do today and not tomorrow and once you do that yet into messy action. Aren care how much you know or how skewed you may or may not be get into messy action and starts doing now. The more you think about it the less you will do start today. I love you all over would really really appreciate if you could take an extra fifteen seconds and leave a review down blur on whatever platform. You're listening to this and share what you've learnt. I really appreciate you for staying to this long. Harp got some value out of this. And i really would love to see at least one of you guys and girls to apply this a life. Take care and see you next time.

"As the corona virus and it's related restrictions take their toll on local businesses. Tempers are flaring over whether governor inslee should call a special session at the state legislature. here's k. O w austin jenkins on wednesday washington state lawmakers. Got some good news about state revenues. They're actually projected to go up not down. Despite the ongoing pandemic but there's a stark difference of opinion between majority democrats and minority republicans over whether the legislature should convene now and pass a bailout package for businesses and workers house budget chair. Timm ormsby democrat. He's in the camp. Says it makes sense to wait and see what congress does unless we have some answers. We're flying a little bit blind on what we would do. Independent and outside of federal assistance. But john bron who's the ranking republican on the senate budget committee says washington has already gotten federal. Help and shouldn't wait around for more. Why aren't we thankful for the help. We've gotten and get off our hands and do something about our situation. Instead of relying on hope now governor inslee has promised fifty million dollars in relief funds to businesses and workers affected by his latest covert orders. I'm austin jenkins in olympia.
This love (Ephesians 2:45)
"Welcome to the audio visual lift your eyes reflections on poles led to the. One wins New Testament lecturer at Moore college. Fishing's check to to this is full to five this love. God loves you. It's an astounding and profound truth full of great comfort and power. I'd love you to grasp. How wonderful it is. But the thing is if I just three words you may not here. I want you to he his lettuce at the phrase by itself might sound cheesy or trot to this evening creaky communication problem. The problem has to do with the word that self love I met a how often I keep using that word love if you'll the jingly speaker. He might not think it means what I think it means. This kind of confusion about words often happens when people from slightly different backgrounds. Try to communicate with each other. They might think speaking of language, but then they discover there are subtle differences Mowatt Bron discovered this when we moved from strategy to leaving England for the most part, we spike the sign languages are English counterparts after all cold it English, and we speak English. But we soon learned that there are certain words that ozzy's English people both us that which main different things. Mostly. It's common words for things like food, and greetings and clothing. We can confused we confused everyone when we talked about packets of chips. They said crisps we've got funny looks when we asked people how you going by ask how you doing or from the north a you're right. Was even moral could when we started talking about app pants, which for us -ment trousers, but for the meant undies. We were using the words to main one thing what I heard was something quite different. The same is true. When Christians try to communicate the biblical concept of God's love when we say love, we mean, one thing something wonderful in life changing. But the word means quite different things to many English speakers, for example, the would love might be taken to mean something like strong desire. So if I say, God loves you a mutt? Sanlam saying God, his strong feelings for you. Another increasingly common understanding of love is the idea of unconditional approval in this view, the white a love somebody is to affirm and approve of everything I do. So I don't approve your actions. And actively everything you do then by definition. I'm not loving, in fact. But if initiative, I'm hating you. On this common. Definition of love. If I say, God loves you the macelve- I'm saying, God affirms everything about you and your actions. But that's not what the bible means by God's love oughta. We'll give this communication problem. How can I explain the idea of God's love? Actually, it's not that hard. The best ways to see how the word actually works. When the bobble uses inefficient chapter two verses forty five pull uses the word love. But he doesn't just say God loves he he explains and spills out what that love Maine's as we look at it. We can see how amazing God's love really is sufficient chapter two. This is five. But God being rich and messy because of his great love with which he loved us way who had dead because of our offenses made us alive together with crossed it is by grace that you aside. First thing we say, here's at God's love is just that. It's God's love is not a love. We just look at the way humans love each other. And then project that onto God, we need to look I have God himself loves and only then work at what that means for harangue love. God's love is related to his mercy. God is rich in messy messy is about shying leniency, an undeserved kindness. Mercy is when somebody in a position of power decides not to give you what you deserve what we deserve. That's what pulled been talking about. In the previous verses we deserve. God's rough because we've offended against him. Let to sell were in a desperate and hype situation before God. But instead of showing that rose to us God shows leniency, mercy compassion and pity to us he has forgiven us back in chapter one verse in this is fundamental to God's love his mercy. Pull the scarves. God's love is. He's great love with which he loved us. Yeah. I hearing that might sound repetitive. But it's making an important point. God's love is shine in action. It's not simply that God. Fill to sit in Wayel had a certain internal attitude toward us. He actually loved us by doing something for us. So love isn't just desire or attitude. God's love is something that God does. Normally, you love someone who is inherently lovable. But God didn't love us because we were particularly lovely. In fact, we would Dade because of era fences pulls already said, they invest one, but you guys out of his white to repeated he why because when we realized that we would dead because of our offenses, we can see something strange, but incredible about God's love. God's love is not about approving of who we are. And what we do. In fact, it's the opposite. It's a love that God showed us even though he clearly didn't approve of who we were. Or what we did state was Dade. We were in a very real and fundamental y cut off from the loss of God and out of relationship with him deserving. He's Roth why because we defended against him. We done the wrong thing rejected him ignored him and rebuild against him. God doesn't approve of any of these things. He didn't actively famous in did state. All support us in Arifin ses. And yet he loved us deeply and profoundly. How? God shed his love this way. He made us alive. This means he changed us for the bidder at the core of our bane. He changed their status. He gave us a new identity. He brought us into a new reality. He didn't just feel force. He didn't just affirm us he loved us. He made us alive. What does this mean? The key to understanding as it is almost everywhere in the physicians is that fries in crossed. Jesus Christ is central to it. All Jesus Christ is the one who's literally been raised from the day. Jesus Christ Dodd applies to bring forgiveness, but he didn't stay did. God brought him to life. He appeared the witnesses, and he ascended to be with God, forever rot. Now, God is bringing the entire creation to the point where everything is summed up Jesus crossed. And even now Jesus crossed his we've gone a live and victorious and for those who believe in Jesus Christ who staked they live on him. There is sitting hype a life to come with God this lot will go on forever rich and full secure in a new creation that Jesus will bring when he returns for us. That's future. But pulls point he is about at prisons. It is good as Dan we had that status that reality that identity. Even now go at rised us, we've crossed we've been made alive. This is what God's love Maine's God has transformed our very identity. He hasn't given us what we deserve by. Instead, he's might us. New people people whose hope and life is set on crust and the future. Sizes poll God's love is about being site by grace that is God's love is shining. Risking us that we don't deserve it. It's by grace. It's a gift to us. Even though we don't deserve it. It means with site rescued from something we caught risky ourselves from because Jesus has died on the cross and risen from the dead. We nast cyber risk you'd people. That's who we are. That's what's wonderful and comforting. And why it's I profoundly life changing. Well, this is what God's love names. It's a love that comes from God himself rather than from us. It's about the God who is rich and messy not giving us what we deserve. It doesn't just involve God's feelings. Or does is but his actions towards us. It's not a love shine to those who inherently desirable. But the love shine to is who unlovely is not just love that simply offense and our actions, but the love which transforms us might us alive and gives us a new identity. It's a love that shine must've all in his son Jesus Christ. And it's not something we've done for us elves. It's a gift of God who rescues us. Is this incredible of something you've grasped if so praise God doing the communicate that love to others. So they can grasp it too. God loves us, a wonderful thing to size this. But by itself does three woods easy to misunderstand. We just keep repeating three words like a man Charl stigma up on billboards or in mission statements. We probably won't get the message across very well at all we'll be saying one thing, but people will hear something else. So whenever we can let's fill it out that he's not just say the words, let's use the rich and profound content. The bobble gives us to communicate what God's love really Maine's and has pulls his little lighter in his leda. Let's leave lives characterized by this kind of love lives of mercy. And gratitude imitating God as he's dealy loved children. For reflection. What aspect of God's love in this first strikes. You the most? How about you bid communicate? God's love to others.

Subtle Ancient Footprints Come To Light
"This is scientific American sixty seconds science. I'm Alina organ. Brown fossil footprints helped. Tell us how ancient people lived but such physical impressions are hard to find your get all of these footprints from different species in the same time period interacting. And you can't see see them all the time and some of them. You never see with the eye that is but we can still detect them with the geophysical sensors Cornell University archaeologist allergist Thomas Urban. He colleagues used ground penetrating radar. GP are to detect invisible traces of footsteps in White Sands National Monument in New Mexico their GP device goes back and forth over an area in a grid pattern which ultimately creates two D radar. Graham the technique detects subtle subtle differences in ground density. Speaking about one set of otherwise imperceptible animal's footprints. He says these were caused by compression of sediment beneath the animals track in the day relate to the weight and momentum of the animal twelve thousand years ago the White Sands area was a large muddy flat which was covered Ford with footprints from various species. Urban is excited about the story. So many footsteps suggest for example the researchers found no evidence of shoes or sandals handles they did find human animal tracks crossing each other which suggests the prints were left during a hunt. The findings were reported in the Journal scientific reports. It's this sort of unique setting has recorded all of the daily movements of people and footprints. They're actually more than more than we even the because there are always some that aren't visible these techniques could be applied to older sites all around the world perhaps even to find dinosaur tracks that have been sitting quietly lightly waiting at long last to be found for scientific.

Rainforest Dwellers and Urbanites Have Consistently Different Microbiomes
"This is scientific American sixty seconds science. I'm Alina organ. Brown our microbiomes. The tiny organisms UNISOM that live on us in Innis can influence our health and a recent study looked microbiome composition diversity depending on where and how we live given the same latitude and climate across South America. We found a gradient over bunny stations from a jungle houses hats off. Marion people leaving traditional lifestyles. All the way to a modern CD Lake Manas was the differences in microbes from our houses and from our a skin and differences in exposure to chemicals. Microbiologist Maria Gloria Dominguez Peyot from Rutgers University. She and her colleagues collected samples from people pets pets and spaces in homes like the kitchen bathroom and bedrooms. They analyzed bacteria. Fungi parasites chemicals and they found two trends As you go from the rainforest to a farm to a town to the city of House with increasing using population density we are exposed to a higher diversity of fungi. We carry more diversity of fungi in our skin. Hey Buddy nowhere got. We lose microbial diversity. The study is in the journal Nature Microbiology. Urban homes US more more chemical cleaners than do rural or rainforest homes and they're more likely to be built out of synthetic materials so city residents are burdened with more chemicals including including metabolites of cleaners detergents paints in and on their bodies. In addition the microbes of urban dwellers are far more like each other than they are like the more healthful mix found in the rainforest. Domingos Baeau thinks one reason is that we are two isolated from natural landscapes. We have grown culturally very anti anti dirt. We we call dirt there at the end. You know we call the soil dirt and that already has a connotation of undesirable they are bowl perhaps city living could be a bit healthier with fewer chemicals from cleansers and more microbes from what gets cleaned for scientific.

#B249 (bratwurst to brawn)
"Hello word nerds. Welcome to the dictionary. I hope you liked yesterday's guests reader if it actually happened which I think it probably did and if it didn't I guess that means I have to go record my own version of that song. So let's talk about the first word which is bratwurst bratwurst bratwurst. Some people brought versed because in the language that it is from which looks like it's German the Visas and the W's are sort of backwards from the way. We say them here in America, but I think so. Yeah, a lot of people say a v instead of a w also looks like some people say brought the bushed instead of there's no are brought. So this is a noun from 1851. It is fresh pork sausage for frying and let's see. So we got we talked about that. It is German from home. Hi German bratwurst from brought which means meet. Oh meat without waste interesting. So that is literally all the stuff that would have gone to waste. I put into a bra. Sausage thing and worst means reversed means sausage so sausage without no waist and it's a hot dog, too same thing basically similar, but different moving on to bron bron schweiger or brunch figer braunschweiger braunschweiger or brown swagger again, same WV thing. Could also be brand schleiger. I guess you want to say noun from but the 1934 it is smoked liverwurst or liver versed I guess in German liver. It's liver sausage. Basically, this is German from braunschweiger which literally means Brunswick sausage breakfast sausage. Okay moving on to Brava and I think you can enunciate either the first or the second syllable. However, you so choose bravo bravo bravo noun from 1741 and the synonym is Bravo and that is used interjectionally in a plotting a woman in what? Okay. So you say Bravo for a walk in and Bravo for a woman it seems so weird now, but I guess back then it made some sort of sense. All right. Next we have bravado noun from Circa 1581 a blustering swaggering conduct blustering swag in conduct one be a pretense of Bravery to the quality or state of being foolhardy. This is from let's see old Spanish bravata from old Italian bravata from Brevard which means to challenge or show off and that's from Bravo. Next is the first form of Brave adjectives from the 15th century one having or showing courage as in a brave Soldier also has in A Brave smile to making a show synonym is colorful as in Brave banners flying in the wind three synonyms are excellent Splendid I could wage. Just said excellent and Splendid as in the brave fire. I soon had going and that is a quote from J. F or Dobie bravely is an adverb wage. And this is from the old Italian and old Spanish Bravo, which means courageous or wild probably from the Latin barbarous, which means barbarous off next is the second form of Brave verb from 1546 starting with transitive one to face or endure with courage to change Elite to make showy now, we have intransitive which is archaic to show courage to make a brave show braver is a noun noun have the third form of Brave noun from 1591 is archaic when we have the synonym bravado to one who is brave specifically an American. Indian warrior Number three is archaic synonyms are bully and assassin there. Is that Pixar movie Brave. I only saw once in the theater, but I remember liking it fine. I don't think it's considered one of their better ones, but I thought it was pretty pretty good. I should probably watch it again though. Now, we have Brave New World three words noun from nineteen thirty-three thousand a future world situation or development also a recent development or recently changed situation. And this is from the dystopian novel Brave New World home from 1932 by Aldous Huxley. I honestly can't remember if I read that book or not. I feel like it was probably assigned to me in school. Hmm But I don't own number next. We have bravery noun from 15481 the quality or state of being brave synonym is courage to a dead. Fine clothes and to be showy display. Now. We have Bravo first form noun from fifteen ninety, six and synonyms our villain and Desperado, especially a hired assassin and this is Italian from Bravo, which means brave so why did they say Bravo when they're applauding somebody maybe we'll find out because we have two more for forms of Bravo plus another version of Bravo. Okay. So the second form of Bravo in a noun from 1761 a shout of approval used often interjectionally in applauding a performance. Yeah, that's great. But why why do they say that? Was there an earlier one that I read that would have made me understand it and I just don't remember what I read entirely possible. Making a fine show colorful. Maybe that's the one from Brave possibly. Yes. You made a fine show Bravo. Okay third form of Bravo a transitive verb from 1831 to applaud by shouts of Bravo. Isn't that the same? Okay. Now we have Bravo again. But this time the B is capitalized wage is it's just from nineteen fifty-two a Communications code word for the letter B. Oh, yeah alpha bravo. Yep. So that's that's what that is. I don't know why it can't be like a noun. It's a it's a word at the word is a noun, right? Yeah. Okay next. We have bravura or bravura first form down from 17571 a musical passage requiring exceptional agility and Technical skill in execution to a Florida girl. In style 3 a show of Darian or Brilliance. This is Italian literally means bravery from Brevard which means to show off didn't we see Brevard earlier? Where was that brave r a In the word bravado it says to challenge or show up. Yes. It's the same thing to show off great and there's more at the word bravado. It was very brave of you to show technical skill in the execution of that musical passage. Now, we have the second form of bravura adjectives from nineteen Twenty One marked by a dazzling display of skills as in a bravura performance and number two synonyms are ornate and showy now we have I think it's could be pronounced bra or bro-ish. However, you want to say it b r a w adjectives from Circa 1565. I think I would say bra number one is cheap Scottish and the synonyms are good and fine. Yep. That's how was your day bro. Number two is also chiefly Scottish well-dressed. Now we have the word brawl with an L at the end first form intransitive verb from The 14th Century one to quarrel or fight noisily thousand. Mm is Wrangle with a wr2 to make a loud confused noise brawler is a noun second form of brawl down from the 15th century one a noisy quarrel or fight to a loud tumultuous noise. Why does a brawl have to be so noisy? Can it just be a quarrel a fight but silent maybe not let's say now we have Broly adjectives from 1941 inclined to a brawl. Oh, I'm feelin real Broly tonight number to characterized by brawls or brawling and then our last word for this episode is Braun b r a w n noun From the 13th century one a is British the Flesh of a boar 1B synonym is Hedges. Now I'm off to take any guesses on what that means to a full strong muscles and to be muscular strength and this is from anglo-french J A on b r a o n which means flesh or muscle of Germanic origin akin to the Old English word braid which means flesh. So we've had brought worst braunschweiger. Bravo. Bravo Brave Brave New World bravery bravo bravo bravo ra bra bra bra wage and Brawn I am going to pick Brave New World as the word of the episode because I think we are on the precipice of a Brave New World. Given the current political social situation that we are in. So thank you very much for listening and until next time. This is Spencer dispensing information. Goodbye.

I saw clay I went walked watched him work out a couple of weeks ago and he's he's doing great. Looks great feels great ready to roll. Steph been working out You know everybody. Everybody's good so now. It's just a matter of waiting and. Seeing. What what's going to happen and and yet we're planning on doing the second bubble in September, but everything's kind of day to day. As you guys know these days, so we're just waiting to hear what what the League tells us. Via the. Question the honest question, was it. When you got through the warriors right? Did you think? They could have been as dominant as what. You guys were. Or were you like? I think it'd be really good, but did you in your mind say do we can go and absolutely changed the whole complex of the NBA and crazy question, but I have to ask I know I. Thought We'd be really good and I knew we were getting a team. The was ready to take another step. You know because we had. I got there in fourteen sold stuff and play were right on the verge. Draymond I think had had not started a game yet, but who had a great of playoff series. Against the clippers the year before they went seven in that series. Yeah Yeah Yeah I. Think. Bogut was hurt that series, so they played small and dream on was amazing. And so we've felt like we could be really good, but we had no idea. That that the team would would emerge like that. I think dream on because we didn't. He had never started. We didn't know he was that good defensively I. Know I didn't and so. He really changed things for us is his ability to. To Guard, every position and e- either player he is. I thought it was that was a month. Yeah, that was a moment where I don't want to call ever injury being fortunate right, but with David lease injury at the beginning of that year it put David Lee was coming off on all star year in all star caliber year all star of the year before I believe, and then here he comes in and You not forced to play a certain. Certain way, but you decided to play a certain went, and you've got off rolex, but had it not been for that that the way David Place. He's a great score. Great low post player all these things. Your style of play would have been different so I'm not saying to. You wouldn't have got to dream on that small ball, but it caught up, but you guys in that position pretty early. Did. Did I mean we were starting David and training cab, and he had a great cab, and like you said he was an all star, maybe the previous year. I who had been a hell of a player. You know his whole career and. And so I didn't go in anticipating that. We're going to start dream on, but we David got hurt. He pulled his hamstring and camp, so we started dream on. I think we started like. Twelve and one or something rolling so. I pulled David aside. He was getting ready to come back and we. Were playing so well. And Got A. Horrible Conversation added. Chanting. It looks like were to be doing better without to channing. We really feel that. You can strike at our second unit. Alley. Like Hey. No. Forty two like six maybe. Those those are the conversations. that. You have to out as a coach. And and you and I had to have a similar one with Andrei. And that one will was planned. You know when when we got there in Camp I knew our our bench unit needed somebody like Andrei, and and that Harrison Barnes would be better in the starting lineup, and so I relied on our Arizona connection. WHO WITH ANDREA? Rely you're you're you're you're alive Luke like? I'm going to. Keep an eye on Andrea there a. Game like a bunch. Arizona guys, and it's just so funny like Andrei such a scientific great dude so awesome. setted but also. Sets. And Lucas the nicest during the world food. You're like Hey Luke your first job as a coach. You're going to have to keep an eye on on juries and make sure. But what was Andre Receptive to? He was he was and and he. You know it was the right time in his career, I mean he had already played ten years he had he had been an all star. He made backs money. You know he was, he was ready for. A change in something different and any recognized this. This was the best team. He was ever GonNa. Play on, and that ironically you know he He Wins Finals. MVP, and then the title of his book a few years later as the six ounce Oh. He embraced that I maybe. He decided. Another great deal extended his career. You extend his career if he if you would if he would play thirty thirty five minutes over the last five year, shred I. I you know as as you get older, it gets harder to do that, and it takes more out of your body, your knees your bag, whatever ailments you might have or only going to get worn out quick so really you put them in a position to make so much more money on the back end because his career as a he's been able to embrace that role into it at such a high level that he still even at league I think he designed an extension with Miami and he's an old man. He came in. He came into the chase center. The signed with Miami and I think like his second game was against us. He got a huge ovation. And Typical Andre He played like twenty. Twenty minutes twenty two minutes. And you guys, will you guys will know this like you look at the box score and it's like. Eight points six assists five rebounds, no turnovers plus twenty seven. Ever again I we just. People with Andrea out there, but he was beyond the stage of his career where he was getting numbers because he was just, he would just control gains. Just because he was so smart and personal. But he was, he was unbelievable to coach. That I love that guy. Did. No, did you guys both play with Andrei or no? No just me I did just channing just Tanguay Andres best years at Arizona. Out this here here's what I'll say and you guys know coach above everybody else. But at that time everybody had a position. You're a are are a forward you. Are you know a small, Ford you're shooting. Guard your guard. Andrei should have played point guard for us while we're there. He had the most triple doubles. He was really the point guard. He made the best decisions I think Andres minds, but it comes to basketball is top. Three of anybody ever play with. That's including Bron Steve, Nash Grant Hill Vince Carter Andres mind when it comes to basketball is. Top five all time. He always does the right thing now when he does the right thing when you don't. He's got about it. He does not care about stats. He does not care about anything else except winning and that's A. Puts him as was. Like, amazing players have ever played. We're at college. He was joint stuff to make so many other people better. We didn't even understand it at the time. Because the leak, the game was not ready for his. Versatility. He was like you know Steve Renault. He was like are Scottie Pippen where he regarded center. Guard, he regarded to guards and he got up a forward Oregon post a guy like Andrea. Do it all and just did it without saying like. Giving the report did 'cause like. I could do it and I WanNa win and that you know I hate saying this. I hope he doesn't listen podcast. He's working. A kind of theme. which pains me to say Steve I'm sorry. I have to listen to these. Brag about zone all. However I did make a trip their overall, so this year we did a podcast on. And I went. The arena, which was amazing You guys. Kale Center Mikhail's shrine. It was pretty dope, but I've heard a lot of stories about their time, Arizona. And then I was told that you were there when the revenge of the NERDS was. Stories, get you shed brought by the way. You have cer. Yeah I haven't seen a lot that one included, but when I heard that you were there during that time house GonNa hear about it Will. My wife was an extra saw. US Yes what she's doing right, but we still have my kids, and I have all looked for every time that movies come on. There's still no sign of. Bud, but she. She claims that she's in the movie. We we but so it, channing, if you, if you next time, it comes on. If you see your, let me know. Bless him our Washington that we've been watching Duda. Corona. We watched everything. What are some of your favorite memories of Arizona See. Going to the final four in eighty, eight was an incredible memory and I was actually there coach Olson's very first year. Here horrible, so it was. It was pretty incredible just to see the rise and be part of that that the first few year where. Coach! Oh, just built it from new thing. Literally nothing to. We were in the NCAA tournament my sophomore year, and that started the streak of I think it was twenty, five or twenty seven straight FIV why. Once on. What are we? You there. Yeah. Brits has gotTA. Bring up, but my year was the last year. We Lost Illinois. Go to the final, four? I remember. It will shot Internet. Those are we're talking about the in? Indiana game or the annoy game. We're talking about the street that was started. Chanting. Loves to see me. Cry On inside. Discussing Richard. Was the first. He was the first freshman. Racine. Your group to not make it off on four. Ru. Steve, Steve You. Have you don't know about that as you went to buy I know about it with. JANNING. Yeah. We went here, channing. You know what I blame I blame to a new culture. I was the beginning of that so I blame that culture. What else can I blame? Hold on. Can I I gotta? Tell You my story about that game. On an airplane this was was was a twenty. Five twenty five is given a two thousand five. To. Two. Sorry. Twenty. Thirty. So I was on a plane. From New York to to say. And I decided I was going to tape. And I didn't check the score or anything. And I land, and I look at my phone I've got. Twenty messages and right. Man Capable would not be calling me if we lost ride. SOM- excited I'm like Oh yes. I hit the first message I screwed I can't. I can't wait. I gotta find out what Hap- I hit. The I is my buddy Danny ferry. Danny says. Stephen Graphs. You guys are on the final four amazing. you guys are up team. L. Three minutes to go I'm so so happy for you. And I'm in the airport light. Yes, yet I was so excited. And then the very next message is my wife, she goes. Do Not Watch the game. And that was it and and now I'm completely confused on like what the Hell just happened. and. That's what I. I'd I'd. It was absolutely. Because I've never. Now looking back I have to give credit where credit is due Illinois. Guards started playing out there bind they. We got very contracts, basically the game, and when they pressed us, they got so many points turnovers, and they were shooting from godless. Wear it. Thousand five people were not shooting. Steph is shooting. But Sarah Williams Richardson. Richard You don't WanNa Championship. So I was there, so let's talk about that he is. Sorry. Sir I. Guarantee you that championship e was very word every time you stepped on the court all. Putting guards every time he will love Blake as bears. Tell everybody this lease. Own. Re Time that channing went to the scores table guarded their. Dick. I'll be mad. So I was like fucking. Steve Every time bears will go in. They chew I getting. There I would run as seatbelts. Man channing, come on, Andrei, get it I like. You just hit like a threes every game in the. WE'RE NOT WE'RE NOT TOWN Hell? No listen, I'll say this I've played four possessions I. Think Steph got switch every time I. Say you know what? This, this is Brianna Kyrie's toddlers. They don't buy by checks a worth. This amount I go move feel like this I'm not that talented. I gotcha here is up to Ya I. Tell them this I'm gonNA. Tell you this. Sometimes you need somebody booster to the spot and then after that up to you. For me, I was there right next to daily and Mas and Mobile Williams. We were chill. We knew it was A. been. There been there many times you. You still got a ring, right? Oh you. Look at it. Is Easy perceived to talk about that because he's got a nine rings. This question you talked earlier about how tough it is that those conversations coach with players you talk about the way in which you won your rings, the player. ALSO GM in Phoenix. What is the? Role harder position. Three coach GM or being fitting titles. You're you're on the floor every day. Will you? You You really. Have I, mean I i. don't know you. You kind of know what you need to do. If. You're a GM. You have a blank slate. You have a million opportunities to do. Everyone and you have to charge them on course as a coach. You look at your hoster. It's not that hard if she know basketball a few you along with. You kind of lay it out and give a team. Your village and you find the lineups at work. And as a player, you know we've all been playing our whole lives. If if you get to the NBA, generally, you've played your whole life and you love the game you just play. Em was. I was not a good GM. Oh I did sign channing off the scrappy so. You convince me to turn down twenty million. One point two years I still to this day. Don't know. Wedge. Who you didn't know that. Somebody was giving you twenty million. I would've told you to take the twenty million. No, no, no, no, but listen. Here's the deal. At that time. Off The books. Somebody said Hey. Your value is this. Now We can't officially offer you that. But I knew for me. If I were to take that twenty, because remember, Travis Outlaw took that twenty. Right on the, he took the twenty year before I did, and he was put in a position to be okay, but I didn't feel like they were developing him or like investing in him. And so when I got to talk to Alvin and you and Griff and Everybody I was like. Do you guys are GonNa like give me a chance to be me and like? Album goes. Hey, I'm gonNA. Give you a chance to start, and you probably might start to get. Out Say gap. Zero in no lie if you look at twenty seven, I started half the Games with Robin Lopez. Would tell us the week before he goes hey! Were playing so robin and Amari, GonNa, start or channing in Amari, GonNa Start or Will whenever we'd play Golden State, Louisville and we'll start just because the lineup, and so for me I respected that like I didn't care about starting a sitting or whatever, just because you're gonNA, get minutes if you're ball. And if the lineup is right, and so like that type of attitude, and that type of opportunity was something crazy than like the why of my five? Those guys are GonNa. Start over everybody you now. That's rare, an MBA nukus starting five. That is literally a a better match than everybody else. Remain a you know like you got. Ten teams can do it the rest. You may have to move some things. A hot minute, but I actually have a question that will come up with that. What do you think of the Bulls documentary? It was fun to watch. Long time ago now and a lot of that footage. We hadn't. watched. and. They were fascinated. They were little toddlers at the time so. On a fun to look back at it. Isn't it funny. How much like the NBA s gained from Lifelock I was? Your last year to now, but like ten years prior fifteen years tire from your first year to year last year isn't a crazy. The things that were just kind of acceptable, and it's still as like modern basketball. Late Nineties Basler's modern basketball same coaches still players stuff like that. Vince just retired, and it's just, but it's completely different or we different. People standing in the lane all the time. And all of a sudden, you know ten years later. It's like everybody can. You know. Crazy. No one. Could she even you? It's like you'd think that's why it's so hard to compare eras when you're like. Oh, well, Steve. Kerr are how many three point shots Larry Bird did. You've made, and you're just like well. Look at the end of the day. Check channing. What is what are you doing? What is chatting doing? Here you guys by Speaker went out so now. Ship. Out like this is every episode on. Mill idea why we go. This looks interesting. See. The was very interesting. I think it's good when people when I would, I'd go back and watched. It would go. Oh, Jeez! Real good right now. No Remake Lute Olson look like a say. We also look. What what I was GONNA. Say as much as I love. Draymond had as a rookie, I would pick draymond on my team any day of the week, but with all of the stuff going on like when I was like man, Steve Does such a good job of managing those personalities and that I go back and watch the Jordan documentary and I'm like Oh. That's Steve Is. Did so good at magic about crazy personalities. Question because I am going to throw this out there. I admired drum I. DO I admire him? From Afar, always have I grew up a huge college basketball fans watching data. Thing, I, do I. Always, been. Especially covering that series. As. Chats. I always wonder. Our why? You're so successful at managing. That energy fire and doing it and since. I like encouraging three. I imagined that it has your release you for him but just what that's like, and then she richards joint. You wash that will documentary in like while you kind of understand where your experiences were. A better understanding of what that relationship. I had I've had some great mentors. You know between Colson. And Phil Jackson Lenny Wilkins mean I've I've played for nothing but hall of fame coaches, and and fill in particular. She really taught me the importance of. Letting people be who they are, you know as long as as long as they stay on course during the course of the of the season. Now if they veer off course you try to nudge back on, but you have to let people be who they are to get. The most out of them and drawn strength is his emotion and his passion, so you know sometimes it goes over the top, and it bubbles over and and but at the end like like Richard. Said you know we're rolling with Raymond every day because he's a winner and he's loyal and he's. He's unbelievable, competitor and So it's you know you try to. Try to find that balance. Let him let him be himself, but. He keep trying to push them. It, Ju- If draymond to tell you he needed. Two days to go to. Vegas just blocks in steam in the. In the middle of the season. What would your you know? Look and worked for Dennis and like you were you were there for that like? Let's say Draymond 'cause. I don't WanNa. Make it say my mind is such a professional outta I don't WanNa make it I. Don't WanNa. Put His name or let's just say a player. Sure sure. I've I've actually done that. All not not Vegas but I've thought. I talked to guys periodically and just say I think I remember this a little bit of. Maybe there's a golf trip somewhere and then think I think I've I. Think I've heard some of these stories Steve. We don't have to get it in inane details or May, there may be golf and bald No I think That was that was definitely something was really good. That was and pop was good at that to like recognizing that the season is such a grind that you gotta. You gotta get away every once in a while. And you can't exactly say our it. No take a week off and go to Hawaii. So you gotTA. Pick your spots and. Somebody today off or if you're on the road somewhere. you know you go, do something different try to get the guys in a position where they can. fill up the COP that was POPs ops phrase. Yo was talking about filling up the cup. You guys get away from the game for a day. Go fill up the cup. Go Do something fun we. We try to do that because the season's too long. Otherwise it'll just cry and you grind you. Especially when it's over multiple postseasons. It that why the biggest thing is just because the season long? And too emotional and I mean, Richard. CHANNING NOAH has blows. Anybody me when you when you go all the way to the finals. The emotional stress is worse than the physical stress you know you got to. You've got game series. And then you have the next day off. It does not feel like an off day because you spend the whole day thinking about your performance in Game One and what you have to do in game two, and then you multiply that, and then you know the the next series in the next series after that, and after by a couple months you can, if it sucks s tau, Maddox you are. And then to do that multiple years like you guys did like we did I mean it's it's just. It's exhausting and I think that's why ultimately. Just aren't GonNa see teams make runs. You know much longer than than four five years. It's just yeah. What effecting one of the one of the most incredible stats of all is Lebron going to the finals eight straight years us. That's insane to me. Is it non eight eight? It's eight. He's been there nine till type. It was I think the biggest trippy part for me is that he took? He went to Cleveland obviously and Kevin. Love, Kyri, no playoff, experience and a lot of playoff experience that team. It's still took the team Canada gets. Her Kyrie gets hurt, but it was just just and then his I think is most impressive years to me and outside a championship. Championship is the first year where Kevin got hurt and taking a very inexperienced team, and then is last year is last year where they lost to you. Guys in in four twenty aging. What tweet eighteen watching him do that with not not nearly the same amount of talented as he had had an a prior couple years like those the best. That's exhausting or back. Yeah, but he everyone's always marveled at his physical, endurance and strength, but. The mental grind when you you just think about you know the the. Last and the Bulls run I mean. You, know the Michael Face the same kind of scrutiny maybe even more so than abroad, although in a different era so it it manifested itself a little differently, but you know he Michael. He went away. He's he he had enough. He said I'm going to go. Play Baseball for couple of years and. And he returned totally rejuvenated, because he got so time off and and and I think he needed the desperately and then. And you think about Lebron just as a machine, and he just keeps going and go on and go on. It's it's incredible. Steve, would you take in? Would you have taken less money to stay? Are would you have to? You Have Stadium? Day was like we could have got these guys back. Would you have stayed and saw that it was? It was really funny, because thou he said that at the very end of the very end, yeah. And he said he specifically mentioned Judd. Buchler Berto Barry Out. Those guys would've stayed like Judd Steve. One Year Deals State Judd and I neither one of US had ever made. Like big NBA money, and then point and that that's summer. We both got got paid for the first time in our career. You were gone. I was. To the Spurs. He went to Detroit. We've both bought our houses. You that house? You're living at right now. We're I'm sitting. There's a pool side of my computer and spurred paid for that bull. So, everybody you heard it here. I love MJ. He is he, is he? Is Basketball Jesus at the end of the day? Some of these guys are GonNa Leave Scottie. Pippen was gonNA take that money. Everybody was like MJ. We appreciate this, but we gotta go gotta go. Brains can't feed families I. I WanNa live in North County of San. Diego when I'm done. Yeah Yeah. Well isn't it like see Neda his. It was. It was interesting because he he just lived a different. Life you just she couldn't go out so. He just stayed in. His sweep is with his security. Guys and they played cards every night and All the rest of us were out and he would never really socialize much, but. But he was. I mean he was? The I thought the documentary captured it really well like he was. You know he was so dominant, and so you just Kinda new. Few just did your job. You're probably GonNa win the championship so. Is a pretty good deal. I went talk about because Steve You have a unique perspective because you played in so many different areas, you coach against Mcgrath, which you also you've been in the broadcast booth and I remember watching you there. I actually stole one of Your Life Your things I give you credit often because you. I started doing this and traveling working there so many games and you're trying to do these notes, and then I got like my best my best player in my high school team. One of my best friends to this day he helps do all of the notes for me, and then I study, said notes. My studies said No. Let's and so that that was the trick that I picked up by overheard you talking about it at one point I'm like you watch the Games, but those notes the bids the real best. But how do you think that the game is covered now like it's just twenty four hour and affected your team, not in like A. Different Way, but just but you guys are the best team. You have so much attention like you've been in the media. You saw how Jordan Wisconsin. You've done all of these things like. How do you think that the media is covering teams? You think it's too much think there's too much twenty four hour news cycle when it comes to the NBA, but it I think adjust mirrors life. You know I think there's there's too much coverage of everything's to the point where. Like all day every day on social media, everybody's going back and forth whether it's about politics, sports, or whatever, and so you know back then like. When I was a broadcaster, who was kind of before, twitter really became a big deal when I was a player in social media didn't exist. The Internet you know was in fiscal. Yeah, infant stages, so you could get away from everything pretty easily, you know if you just avoided the like turning turning on talk radio and the morning paper you could go. You could leave practice. Go home. Home do whatever you wanted to do. Go to sleep and you wouldn't hear. See One thing about the Bulls or the NBA, and if it was really easy to make that decision, and now you can't do it because we all have the stuff coming directly into our phones, and we're all addicted to our phones, and and the information is constantly streaming, and and so it makes it really hard. I think to be a an athlete or somebody in the public eye. Just because you're, you're being judged twenty four seven and it does 'cause. It causes You know just a lot more possibilities for for friction. Years the thing when Steve talks kind of lesson 'cause I. Remember after the Senate Tony Our series, but I was in Phoenix. Steve Sat me down, aware playing the Lakers and I literally. Like greets the bottom of the barrel member was shooting one for twenty or something like that as goes channing. He. Sat Me Down Agus, channing. Did. You ever think you'd be here. I said Fox. Neither did I. You have a great wise. You get on the way like your life is good. Go out there and just scoop and have fun. And he gave me some story about how when he was on the Bulls. He was missing a lot of shots, but he made a bonds. But all I heard was Chen. Go Out. What would your wife dinner? Grab a bunch who drinks. And just realize where you're at in life. And it all comes through your. But literally that before runner tests caught airball the Niagara Forerunner test that airball. Made that God damn layup in no fast recipes Kobe. He was out of bounds, but It changed my life because attitude, everything was dude, even if I absolutely sucked today. This is awesome that we get to play. My whole attitude towards basketball train from that moment, because if steeper, no I was crying in the car after every. Facet. Val I feel bad for taxi. You your plan, Buddy. Yeah, I felt back to. Dhaka Steve had much impact on both of us In that sense, what? What a jerk! The what a jerk! Steve! But it was crazy because I was your real new prestige NASA, Granny Oh. You're ruining mega, and that was an a gem and even a coach Kenny. You cannot shoot anymore like stop shooting like you're not going anywhere. It's not getting any better were already in fucking like almost June. Like may thirtieth like it, either it is, or it isn't and I didn't get it I just wanted to win so bad. I was like just. Shooting shooting shooting shooting, and there were Cheddar by by. God Do. But. Steve Cable. Getting. Oh. Well I'm a I'm glad that helped. I did I used to the same thing as a player. I would just beat myself up news so unhealthy. I gotTA. Tell you guys this. was. There's obviously the Arizona connection the bear down connection but When you guys went to Cleveland. You you guys changed that team and Allie. You can probably attest to this since you were around, but I I knew this because I knew David Griffin so well. We had worked in Phoenix together. And that was a pretty tight locker room. Guys went in there and all of a sudden it was party central. And a job for flying around and I'm in Lucan is out there and we're like fuck. Richard and channing. Chemistry in that locker. We don't need that to happen. Serious, we. We knew this. We knew that you guys were had that kind of energy and humor the. Kind of the vibe and I think that what you guys brought to that team. made such big difference where we could just feel it as opponents. Who was like a? Different team when you guys. Were there. It was just There was a a level of. That hadn't been there before. Traded for me, though I was land of. Though and he could've traded for me I was. made the edge. Luke Shot Down Luke was I I don't think we need this? Move Luke Andre. lucan Andre Luke, Andrei, what do you think we can get channing Frye? We have to give up a third round pick. Like super buttons and three lint balls, no matter what we have to give G. League tickets. Stale Palm Court and they were like no, we can't. We have this. Bubble. This is what I remember when you want either one of you guys took a shot in front of our bench. Woke would sit. Right on on my on my right. And every time when you guys would go up for a shot. Hell No. Crazy L. E. took shots, so they'll do well. It was usually Richard have usually. EARN, he would turn a look. He would look at me with that Luke Walton Grand. and. Liver liver. You Know Yeah Yeah. Yeah I got I got him there. Steve and I hated your whole coaching. Staff I hated. Chris I hated. I hated Jaren who obviously with Jason for so many years at the jared became really really good friends. You obviously I can't stand Steve, so it was like it was such a funny. Series? There was just so much connection going back and forth, but you know Steve I appreciate you coming on here. Man I, sure talks about those moments I kid you not I, remember receiving that text from you in your I'm watching when we beat you in San. Antonio before you went all Benjamin Button on you do remember sends this enemy that check out rewind saying graduation, but I stand by like you watching you guys and learning those lessons for my second year. That's why I was so locked and so focused in years fifteen so. You know as much as we could say. cavs fans as much you might hate Steve Kerr's much of you might hate the warriors. He's had such a profound impact on my south and channing, which ultimately helped us get it done in Cleveland. Hang on Kassian eight occur when he yes, yes, yes, they Dan got. Other said they hate. Steve, Steve was on the phone three way with remote when it got jv. That's his and on top of it. Steve has a striking resemblance to a yum. Craig yellow just as I am. And I. See my entire life. I need you to stop that right now. Older Zach quite Hausky from. You'RE GONNA. Make US city reference at no one's going to get the. Even the joke died. Instead! Dark turn okay.

The negro who made the remark rumors spread that nelson had been brought back to the mars and that there had been threats of lynching but they were unfounded after questioning with no evidence to tie him to the crime.

Embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Mike, Brown. Do you know that is? Was a Republican senator from Indiana. He ran as a businessman and an outsider against former Democrat Senator Donnelly from Indiana. I supported Senator Mike Bron his campaign in two thousand eighteen. He won large in part. Thanks to President trump support. And I haven't really been following much of Senator Brown in the last year and a half he did speak out very nicely and courageously during the impeachment fight, but I kind of just tallied him as another republican establishment senator wasn't saying much in. Fighting very hard, but wasn't necessarily helping the opposition, so then watch Tucker Carlson on Monday night. Here's Senator Brunt. Wonder what he has to say and I missed the segment last week on Tucker Carlson show, where he exposed Mike Brown for pandering to be alum. which insist I encourage everyone out there to stop using the term of the organization black lives matter because the sentence does. Have Truth of course very true statement. Instead, call Blm 'cause. is so distinctly different than the statement. So then Senator Ron to my surprise. said that he supports the B. L. and movement. I couldn't believe it I had I had pause. The television and I listen to it four times. It was from a podcast that senator. Brown did about a week ago. We and a half ago were Senator Mike. Braun said he supports the B. L. M. Movement PLAY TAPE! You support the black lives matter movement. I support that movement because it's addressing equity that has been solved. From a grassroots level. So because of this Senator Ron made headlines, but honestly I don't even know about it until I watched on Tucker Carlson show. That a Republican senator from the State of Indiana. Supported a pro sex work abolish prisons abolished police increase the amount of abortions and destroy the Nuclear Family Marxist organization. And as you heard this tape Mike. Brown reiterated that he does support the movement. And so then he goes on Tucker Carlson show on Monday evening. I WANNA play this tape because I. Think it's really good for a movement to weed out. People who call themselves. Republicans like Senator Mike Bron. When they just act as pandering to the Democrat Party. And there's no one better at doing this than the Great Tucker. Carlson, play tape before I ask you about qualified immunity and your attempts to water down. I was very surprised by that endorsement that you gave on camera of black lives matter black lives. Matter has of course called for the murder of police officers. Why do you support it? And are there any other race specific revolutionary movements that you support? So Tucker thanks for having me on in the first place. I know when you? Out, and I like it when somebody does challenge especially something like this. When you're talking about changing something, it's been around for a while and Tucker I come from Main Street. Year viewers are my supporters and got one of the most conservative that. Now. That's true. You'd have to check with them. Just like I checked with the Indiana State Police Indiana Sheriff's Association. Return order policemen over an hour with them last week to make sure I wasn't off base it. Here's where I come. I'm confused. Really quick all that. You're basing your support of black lives. Matter your endorsement that you just gave. Have you read their website or are you going abolishing the nuclear family? What do you support exact? I support anybody that does have a grievance to be able to air it and that's it. That doesn't mean all lives don't matter. It just means that. If you think a certain sector, society has grievance, it ought to be through transparency and the willingness. Debate it and get it out. There I'm sorry. We just showed tape of you. Senators saying we need to pull back. We need to get easier to. To. Sue The police because of quote, egregious incidents like the death of Ray Sharpe Brooks. You said you wanted to speak about specifics. Do you believe that he was killed unjustly? Do you believe officer Ralph deserves the death penalty which he now faces. What did you mean by that I? Believe you ought to have the ability to just like when anyone civil rights would be violated. The you've got access to. Due Process to have your case. They do that, but they do. Twelve unit hold on qualified immune has nothing to do with that case. He's been charged. They have the right to sue him under qualified immunity. Is You know since you're writing the change to the law? So that's irrelevant. I'm asking about the case you cited it. Do you believe that the officer now? Facing the death penalty deserves to face the death penalty, and if you don't tell us what he should have done. I think that's going to be determined by the court and when it comes. To hold on, you cited it. What do you think of it? You're the one who called a degree. Just so, why don't you tell us? Should have done when this man fired a Taser Adam what do you think? I think that you probably should've had the judgment that in a traffic. Stop like that. You don't shoot somebody in the back so if we keep doing that, so. All no no I. Want you to explain I think it's fair your office holder I. Don't normally press people like this, but it's not fair for you to Filibuster that answering my question, which is very simple. The officer facing the death penalty had a guy fire a weapon at him. What should he have done then? Probably, not have killed the guy and that'll. He should've gone away not. Let them. Do think he was going to get away. They were GONNA. Tell me you tell me you're the one judging the officer, so that could explain why you're judging. Tucker that all come out in the court process and all I'm saying. Let me finish this if we don't get better at it for all of us on Main Street. Democrats are going to spin it. Chuck. Schumer is already decided he can make hay of this and the election and will end up on the short side of it again if you're wanting to say. Chuck Schumer controlled I thought Republicans control the Senate the. Usual, Chuck, Schumer, you saying Chuck Schumer might criticise me therefore. I have to pass a law that makes it easier to sue. No you have to have sixty votes in the Senate to get anything done, you can check my rather. Take over and even law enforcement Indiana. Thanks in some of these cases. It's giving them a bad name in bad apples ought to be There ought to be due process there for the victims. So what enforcement groups are endorsing your bill? They're not endorsing it, but they said it was a good to work from. But why aren't they endorsing? Then? You've cited them twice as supporters of this idea, but they're not endorsing your bill, so they don't actually support it. So why are you bringing them up as? A good idea. They think it's a better idea to be in the discussion. Then be outside of it. But if you care what they think, why don't you write something endorse? And that doesn't necessarily mean we won't get there. That's not going to be done today. The Democrats now think they can win with it in the election, and that's why we needed to be engaged now in a way that would have kept it on the. Bill that law enforcement won't endorse the country's burning, not because cops are burning it down, but because the mob is, but you think the morally culpable party is the police. You're making it easier for wing groups to sue them. You think you're going to keep the Senate in the fall on this platform. I think we're going to keep the Senate. If we at least are willing to engage in issues that are important to the American public and that we don't always stand on the sidelines until it's too late, it's more about ninety. Get involved in the issue. I don't think the public supports you at all on this I. Just, don't so. There's a lot to unpack there, but I. Just want to remind you that Senator Mike Brown wanted to go on Tucker. Carlson show and so I, don't know how it slipped under my radar or under the radar of Republicans or conservatives that a sitting Republican senator from deep. Red State of Indiana said he supports the BLM movement. He did not say he supported the statement. That would have been perfectly fine because I support the statement. But he didn't. He did not even clarify on the segment with Tucker Carlson that he was against the destruction of the nuclear family. He did say well. Of course I don't support that. The white support the movement senator never gave an answer, but if you're Republican, who supports be ellen than you are not a Republican. And you should either leave the party or have the party. Leaders Force you up if they had any semblance of backbone. So why do I say that? Again. Let's take a look at some of the BLM. INC stated highlighted goals on their website. Quote, we disrupt the Western prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and villages that collectively care for one another, especially our children to the degree that mother's parents and children are comfortable. So they want to disrupt the Western prescribed nuclear family structure. Let me just say this again. We disrupt the Western prescribe nuclear family structure that sound like something. A sitting Republican senators should be supportive of that sound like something. A Republican senator from Indiana should be supportive of. They continue on their website by saying. We foster a queer affirming network when we gather, we do so at the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of Hetero, normative thinking, or rather the belief that all in the world are heterosexual. This son like something that a Republican senator from Indiana should say he supports, and when given an opportunity to clarify. His support it. He does he does? He does not clarify at all none of his. Press releases. A none of his tweets are social media post. Has he said anything about saying yeah. I actually don't want to destroy the Western. Prescribe nuclear family. He hasn't clarified at all. In fact, Tucker gave him the opportunity to do that and he didn't do it. So when you start to push power when you start to endorse these leftist Marxist movements. This is what you are supporting. I'm black. LIVES MATTER DOT com. They also continued by saying. Call for a national defunding of police. We demand investment in our communities and the resources to ensure black people not only survive but thrive. Does that sound like something. A A republican. Senator from Indiana should be supporting. They also said this. They also call for the end of private prisons and jails. The legalisation of sex work and their cofounder has admitted to being a hardened Marxist. Let me read that again. The legalization of sex work. Do you think that the legalization of sex work is a Indiana value? Do, you think the legalization of sex work is something that the Senate Republicans should be embracing and endorsing. If you, support, be, Ellen, Inc I, encourage all of you to use that new nomenclature. No longer say the phrase that is true as a way to describe something that is not. Well intended and doing damage to our country. If you support be LMS INC as quote Republican that is just some of the radicalism that you are supporting. Legalization of sex work co-founder admitted to being a hard and trained Marxist defunding of police. Queer affirming network and disrupting the western prescribed nuclear family. But, senator. Mike Bron Republican from Indiana nevertheless said quote. I support the black lives matter movement, because it's addressing an equity that has not yet been solved at a grassroots level going to play the tape again for you. Because, he doubled down on play tape again. I support that movement because kids addressing equity that has not been solved. Grassroots level. There's no confusion here. Of what Senator Bronze supports he supports. A B. L. Marxist movement. And even though Senator Brown claimed that he had the backing of the police in this plan to end qualified immunity that actually turned out to be ally. The Indiana State Police Alliance released a statement. After Brown's appearance on across reading in part quote, the SPCA emphatically opposes abolishing qualified immunity protections for police officers. In summer. We do not support center bronze current qualified immunity legislation, Senator Brown was gallivanting on TV. Using, the Indiana Police Association as a reference point, basically trying to gain credibility basically trying to. Make It seem as if he has more support than he really doesn't so not only. Is he pandering to radical left wing constituency, but he's also lion. What's so upsetting for me? Is I remember when Senator Mike Brown was running, and as I go. Maybe we'll have a businessman from Indiana. Maybe we'll have a clear and fair thinker I've met him before. I've an opportunity. Sit Down with, and he seems pretty decent minded, and he's a very nice guy. I'm not attacking necessarily. How if he's personable or not? And I think that's we as conservatives. We get this wrong way too often. We somehow. Can flate. How Nice someone is in person with their? Lack of courage and their lack of clarity and their lack of commitment to the constitution to our country like all well. He's a nice guy. Being a good US senator is not being congenial. Being a good US senator is not being pleasant. Being a good senator is not someone that you want to go and hang out at night with I mean that might be nice, but how is someone who stands up against the mop?

Do, you think that Don, lemon or Rachel. maddow would have the gumption to stand up to the rotten parts of their party. The way that Tucker Carlson did of course not. Tucker Carlson is a true fighter, and he's the perfect example of a war time conservative Senator Mike. Bron Republican from Indiana is not. So this is why I tweeted this last night. Greg Pence, who's an actual American Patriot and conservative should primary that Schumer, appeasing Marxist sympathiser, Mike Brown and Indiana. Time the flat out the leftist from the Republican Party now mind you I'm willing to stand corrected if Mike Braun comes out and says you know. I actually don't support the movement I shouldn't have gone after qualified immunity I'm a new US. Senator and I apologize I'm willing to make space for that and everyone makes mistakes, but he asked Gone Tucker Carlson show. He went out of his way to Tucker Carlson show, and in a very bizarre turn of events. His staff uploaded the entire interview to Youtube right after he does the interview as if they're proud of his appearance and a proud of his appeasement of the Western prescribe. Nuclear Family Structure Force Blm, and for any of you out there that are conservatives that are wondering. What can I do to save my country? Well you should go to Mike Bronze. Senate website and just fill out a contact form. Even if you're a resident of Indiana are Knox better few, but that's fine. If you're not and has asked the question being like. Why did Mike Brown not denounce. BLM ON, Fox News. Why did Mike Brown say he supports the movement? Wiser Republican kowtowing to most radical elements of American society. I mean I would have a little bit more leeway if Mike Bron might be representing. The State of California as a Republican may be not really I don. I wouldn't understand it a little bit more baby in the decision making process, and maybe if he was in cycle, I really wouldn't have much tolerance for it, but I would understand how you came to that conclusion more, but if you're a Republican senator from Indiana, which is probably the fifth or sixth most. Republican state in the entire country. And, this is the tone at you take. I would rather fight and win with bloody knuckles than lose with unharmed hands. and. That's the mentality that the party has to adopt. People say well Charlie. How are we supposed to? Get Sixty. Votes in the Senate like this. Well first of all. If you have sixty votes and they support Blm like Mike Brown I, think it's. Completely irrelevant by the way the metaphor just use not physically at all I just use it as a metaphor that is something I ever want us ever to get involved physically in conflict in our country at not praying, praying my hands and knees that we never have to get to that country. The people say well clearly. We're GONNA get the votes to get anything honestly I'm Mike Brown says well first of all. The Democrats get rid of the filibustering to fifty one votes anyway, so it's kind of an immaterial conversation number one number two. I would much rather have forty Republican senators that fight than sixty that cow to the interests of Biella finally. Is that the most important thing in our country just to get sixty votes the most important thing? Or maybe we should fighters. People that stand for truth. Ask yourself the question. The more we have Republicans. In office I don't fight. Is Our country going in a better direction or worst direction? And is not that they don't fight I. Mean you've listened to my prior episode that we just released an urgent message, the Republican Party we dropped it yesterday for those of you that are having summer road trips and WanNa get fired up by. Encourage you to listen to it. It's very well received. We're getting great. great feedback on it. And my message there was more to Republicans that weren't doing anything I. Only wish that I knew Mike Bronze. Said this last week and I have to say I monitor the news very closely and carefully I just missed the fact that he went on a podcast, said he supports the Biella Movement, that one's on me and you guys. You guys deserve to know when people say that and I gotta do even better job of monitoring this because I got to be able to deliver that to you when you're elected, officials decide to support Marxist movements that want to destroy our history legalized sex work increase the amount of abortions. About prisons and abolish the police. And so unlike senator. Mike Bron I do not support Blm Inc.. Would I do support is of course, the statement and the idea that black lives matter of course black lives do matter all lives matter, but the left as they do, and as they always have, they've co opted that language and turn it into a cultural touch point with a deeper more sinister meeting. I mentioned this earlier. And I want to really dive into this the left are the best messengers that will ever deal with politics black lives. Matter should be a simple universal truth just like all lives matter. But, but that's not the case to the left. The left knows exactly what they're doing. This is a Trojan horse for Marxism for blatant and bitter anti-americanism anyone who says no, I don't support black lives. Matter is then labeled as someone who doesn't support the idea that black lives matter. That's why I'm no longer calling it Black Lives Matter Inc organization by their full name, just by their acronym be Ellen Inc.. First of all, they're raising hundreds of millions of dollars. God knows what they're doing it that money, but they also represent two distinctly different messages. This is a game that the left always place to think about it. They said universal healthcare which really means what socialized medicine. They say women's healthcare, which really means what brutal and abundant abortions. We say all lives matter they racism. They say dreamers a really means foreign nationals and illegal aliens. I could go on and on and on. The point is that we've been losing the messaging game for so long as we continue to play into their bitter, divisive racist narrative will continue to lose so that's why we're calling it. BLM encourage all of you to tell lawmakers to message. People in power to say never say that again. Because you're saying something that is materially true, that is being applied to a malevolent force. The Democrats continue to move the overton window and we continue to shift with them instead of pushing back and drawing the line, so Senator Mike Brown says well. What about Obamacare? When we were even involved in the conversation let's play tape of him saying that on Tucker Carlson such a weak argument. Play tape. We need to be end the discussion. Look how we got rolled with Obamacare when we've refused. To. His whole argument is that obamacare was so bad. Because Republicans decided to fight it not work with it. Obamacare just like how we defeated cap and trade in two, thousand, nine or two thousand ten should have been. Destroyed filibustered and defeated in the US Senate was actually arguably past illegally because Scott Brown's Senator Scott Brown from Massachusetts ran as the Anti obamacare candidate for then to see Senator Ted Kennedy Senate seat, but they still passed with fifty nine votes while doing an accounting trick to get it done, and then you have Joe Biden says this is such A. Big Deal, actually you know what? Let's play the tape of that, so you can hear the wonderful Joe Biden using colorful language play, tape, Ladies and gentlemen the President of the United States of America. Barack Obama. Mike Brownsville, argument is look. At obamacare, it ended up horribly because Republicans were involved in the process. No. It ended horribly because the idea of Obamacare was a disaster government run healthcare. Some people would argue and say that there are death panels twenty-seven new taxes medical excise tax. Absolutely bankrupting the Medicaid exchanges in all the states. It was a gateway to socialized medicine. That's a nonstarter so according to Senator Mike Brown. We should go along and pander to the leftist. Thesis talking points in their presuppositions. It's a completely wrong guiding thesis. In fact, it sounds like someone who's sending far too much time. Pandering around with Chuck Schumer Moderate Democrats Radical Democrats and moderate Republicans. Blm Inc should be denounced. And defeated organizationally all across the country. Instead we have senators Republican senators that are voicing support passing legislation that makes Blm inc happy and honestly it's really interesting. I I always. This is one of my. Operating matrixes and it's not perfect. It isn't, but it's pretty good. If the most radical elements of the Democrat movement. Are applauding what a Republican senator is doing! That's not necessarily meaning. It's awful idea. But it should. Generally as a rule mean it's an awful idea it's it's not a perfect logical system to make decisions. It's not, but it's a pretty good one. It's a pretty good one to say that. If BLM INC is supporting. Braun to strip qualified immunity. Then, it probably is not a pretty good idea especially when you know the idea that they're espousing. And, mink by the was actually act blue ink, which is the payment processor of the Democrat Party. And so every. suburbanite who thinks they're going to change the world by donating money to black lives matter dot com. Every suburbanite that things are going to be able to. AND THE RACISM IN AMERICA BY GETTING MONEY TO BLACK LIVES MATTER DOT COM, which we've been through exactly what they believe in pro sex work abolish prisons abolish police. More abortions destroy the family. The more. They pandered to those elements. They're actually giving the their own data to act blue, so then they can be solicited. In the future Joe Biden for President or Alexandria because you Cortez for Congress of Senator wherever she runs in the future. You have just given the most valuable piece of information that you have. It's not your money. It's your data just handed over to act blue? You probably didn't even read the disclosure waiver for the Christian pastors that had their congregations give money. The black lives matter dot com to the upper middle class. Individuals that have no idea really what stands for filming. That's. Pretty, dangerous, pretty scary. And yet. That's where Republican Senator Mike Braun. Decides to voice his support now with police officers. Not with everyday Americans that are suffering and the OPIOID crisis, not the manufacturing jobs that have been shipped out of Indiana. Because of our pandering policies to China. Senator Mike Brown is not introducing bills for US Senate to have our kids love America again. He's not introducing bills, United States Senate to. Have the next generation appreciate the founding fathers, said Senator Mike Brown's going out of his way to go on Tucker. Carlson show. To advance talking points a link in advance the talking points at Chuck Schumer. This is why we are losing our country. We are losing our country because we have a Republican. Party that decides to pander to the most radical elements of American society, and I'm all for solving problems I'm all for coming together, but as Victor Davis Hanson Brilliantly says we're going to have him on our podcast. He says if you are not taking this as a priority issue when America was not in the sense of cultural panic. Than why are you doing now? Are you pandering or you're actually trying to solve a problem? And generally I think policing should not be solved and the halls of the United States Congress. Generally I think that policing is best on locally, and that's why I think that Minneapolis. defunding their local police is going to be met with huge protests and repudiation personally. It's going to be a huge increase in crime. I do not think that Mike Bron should be introducing a federal bill stripping qualified immunity for people across the country special in the Indiana Police Association says it's an awful idea. We are losing America because people who are supposed to be on our team are pandering to the radical. Destroying our country, those people should not be Republicans. Those people should be independence or not. In the US Senate at all. We need wartime conservatives. We need fighters, not people that pander to be a lemming. And the most sinister forces in America.

Charlie. Make sure they know that our show sent you. A great phone call yesterday with your friend of mine from New Jersey New, York area and I was on the phone with him, and his twenty five year old son, and he says only that really resonate with me and I decided to dive deeper into the polling because I think it was really true, said Charlie. I'm just culturally exhausted right now. I'm just fatigued from the new cycle, and it really dove into an I. I totally agree with him. I said I think a lot of people have fatigue and the Washington Post on April. April twenty ninth said that seventy one percent of Americans now must take breaks from coronavirus news and I don't think that it's probably improved from there I'd like to see some more polling I've seen some data that reflects something similar, and by the way if it was true February April, how do you think Americans are feeling now after months of protests and riots and looting and arson, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zones Tattoos being desecrated the alum inc going on television and propagandizing the American people and now more lockdowns to point out. That are coming. We're emotionally psychologically and spiritually worn out and scared, and the Democrats and the media are continuing to pour it on. There just pouring gas on the fire of the fearmongering machine just today from the associated, Press Anthony. That the United States is going in the wrong direction in the corona virus outbreak about forty thousand new cases, being reported the day voucher the top government infectious disease expert I. Don't even know why we would call him that. He's been wrong about everything. He said that quote. We not be surprised to go to one hundred thousand Dave. This is not turnaround. I'm very concerned. told the hearing Senate Health Education, Labor and Pensions Committee and And if that weren't enough from NBC, it's as a new strain of flu. Now found in China, has potential become a pandemic. The new strain has descended from the type of flu swine flu that is emerging two thousand, nine, causing the first global flu, pandemic and forty years as with swine flu hover. The new strain has been identified as having all the essential hallmarks of a candidate pandemic virus. That's your good news. That sure good. Good news of the day right, the new strain of the flu is being closely monitored. My goodness China. Can you guys get your act together? Look first of all there are are cases are going up because you cannot go into a hospital I, said this in a previous episode of Charlie Kirk Show I'm gonNA. Keep on saying this. You cannot go into a wrought mandatory testing, so people are not showing any symptoms are being tested. Therefore, the testing pool is getting bigger, but the the positive rates are staying stable or going down and deaths are going down in every major state except Arizona, which has ticked up slightly but Howard. Categorizing the deaths is still highly questionable. And tend to go further into this idea of societal and cultural X. exhaustion. The Democrat Party has now even begun to demonize Mount Rushmore. In a tweet from the Democrat National Committee's twitter, they actually refer to the July fourth celebration as glorifying white supremacy and will actually have sent south. Dakota Governor Christie nome on the show very soon. You guys are GonNa love it, and she says quote not on my watch, so make sure you're subscribed to the Charlie. Kirk show type and Charlie Kirk. Cherry podcast spider hit subscribe. Give us a five star review. This is really happening and the activists media is totally silent, and they're especially silent on what Joe Biden thinks that any of us and commentator Stephen. Miller made the point replying to the Democrat National Committee's tweet. He said this Gosh would be sure neat if there was an entire. Entire industry professionals who could ask the Democrat nominee for president of his party if he agrees with the sentiment that mount, Rushmore glorifies white supremacy, I mean we still don't know where he stands on removing statues. They let him out to run around once a week can give him twelve minutes statement on something. And then they go back to the basement GRANDPA and finally after eighty nine days. A press conference Joe Biden Biden finally took questions. Today was all softballs is basically fungal baseball. He did commit debating the president, which was nice. The whole press conference was a total farce. Aaron Perrin Director Press Communications for the trump campaign tweeted a list of approved reporters to take questions from then quote. Are Any of these approved reporters about the push back on any of the lies that Joe Biden is telling of course, not an Ari. Fleischer who is the former Press Secretary for George? W Bush he reacted in today's press conference with some very very smart observations, he said the differences between the tenor of the questions to Biden compared to the questions of trump is striking after eight years of going easy on Obama almost four years being. Being brutal the trump, the mainstream media seems happy to go easy again. Here's what wasn't asked one anything about Biden's role in authorizing surveillance against the trump campaign to to blue lives, matter three should chop in Seattle. Never been allowed for. Will you prosecute those who destroy statues? Five should New York Police Department cut one billion, and it's all about societal blackmail. This is about blackmailing the American public into voting for Joe, Biden. This is coercion. Plain and simple. Basically it's been orchestrated by the Democrats and their propaganda arm of the leftist media. When Bill Maher said that he wanted the economy tank. If it meant removing trump from office, we are seeing that idea become mainstream on the left. This is a small price to pay for them. Especially since they all want to destroy capitalism, the idea of private property, they've created a war zone in. America were no good or uplifting. News is allowed to exist all of it with the. The unspoken promise that come November if we electro Biden, all this will go away. The pain will stop and go back to normal again. They are blackmailing and extorting the American people. Basically saying if you vote for Joe Biden your life can come experts, they'll come back. The market will go up. Your jobs will come back. Basically they are slowly and surely trying to put a metaphorical societal gun to the head of the American people and say you wanted to stop. Just vote Biden.

By the way, even all the chaos Inonu's news subsides, the truth will be much more serious and sinister death inner. Our cities will skyrocket from the lack of policing. The media will not cover that are business. Owners will be destroyed by high taxes regulations. The media will cover that our schools will continue to fail from a lack of choice and unchecked teacher unions. We will sell our. Our Future Out to China and watch the reemergence of terror in the Middle East L. Across the world and Marxist will be left. A poison wrought and destroy our institutions. At least what's left of them and you saw this with Reagan? You saw the Jeb Bush and now you see it worse than ever before with trump. Why because he called out the activist newsmedia day after day. It's always a war when conservatives are empowered, because the institution of the news media is owned and controlled by the left so as Hollywood so while things seem so bad. Frankly aren't a lot of ways. The this is a media sleight of hand. They selectively publish certain stories. Run with them for days and never give us a break. This is why we never stop hearing. A black man tragically killed by a white man, but we never hear about the eighty five percent of interracial victimizations are black on white is of course from the Great Heather McDonald, so do not be fooled by the extortionist tactics to the left and the activist news media do not allow them to blackmail you into your vote. They create a narrative not based in truth. The truth is at policies of this president have worked and will work again. They want you to seek chaos and cultural upheaval from the riots and the chaos. They do not want you to see that it's their side causing it. The left destroys everything it touches. They do not want to see that it's conservatives restoring order that does not fit the narrative. And they will counter any narrative that we advance I. Mean Joe Biden, said today that he thinks that trump has signs of cognitive decline. He says that trump we come. China truth is out a left-wing value, so they'll just deflect the accusation that we're about to throw on them against us. This is why we must flip the script and go back on offense the way you go back on offense. Offense and the way you make media play defense is big and bold ideas. Go back in the archives to the trolley, Kirk show listen to our think big podcast is one of our best rated podcasts. We've ever done and I want to all of you to email me your questions. Freedom at Charlie Kirk Dot com freedom at Trolley Kirk Dot. com of your ideas of how we can lay out. Positive vision of what America looks like. If Donald Trump wins not just saying Joe Biden won't be president, not as positive in of itself, but show me concretely show me tangibly of war how your life will improve. If Donald Trump wins another four years, our kids will love. American jobs will come back. People will be smiling. Can we laugh again? Can comedians make jokes that may be pushed the boundaries? All these things are being put in jeopardy by the cultural left that are digitally and culturally annihilating anyone they dare disagree with. We as conservatives have to defend the American way of life, we as conservatives stand on the shoulders of giants of Churchill and Reagan Thatcher John. Locke Jefferson Washington, we learn from these people. Because they stood up against a mob and stood for truth, they also painted a picture that Western society can be better than it is today, but it doesn't need to be destroyed in order to get to that future we need to be the ambassadors of optimism of hope, afford thinking of creativity of benevolence of generosity of teaching our kids that you live in a wonderful country, and we must defend and protect and preserve it. No more just saying like. Oh, we're better because we're not them and that is in some way extensively true. But instead we must become better at articulating why we believe what we believe, and that's why laid out. Those five ideas was really eight by the end of it, and how we can start messaging differently with proposals that speak the anxieties of this moment shared by Patriots, an independent voters alike. School choice for black kids making our kids love America again. The constitution taught in classrooms across the country, becoming a self sufficient nation. Building two statues very statute that they tear down. Proclaiming Truth. In every single corner of our country. That's a country that I. WanNa live in. Because for young parents out there I'm getting tons of messages at freedom at Charlie. Kirk Dot com freedom at Charlie Kirk Dot Com. I'm getting messages, and they say I don't know if I want to raise kids in this world. I don't know if I want to raise kids. Where everyone's wearing masks. They're afraid to gather, and even though kids are basically at no risk of getting the virus that we have seven and eight year olds, I'll just watch walking the streets a couple of hours ago. OF AN UNDISCLOSED CITY! An, all these kids are wearing masks, and they're in perpetual fear that somehow there's GonNa. Be a pathogen. It's GonNa Kill Them. It's just not true. We're robbing childhoods of our children. We are robbing the innocence of kids in the left has done this for so long and their masters, the Left or master that making sure that kids have miserable childhoods today they bring in sex education for nine and ten year olds to teach them things that they shouldn't learn for another decade or at least half a decade. May ruined the innocence of our children, and by the way are white. Kids are being automatically demonized. They have to take knees in their classrooms. Apologize for their immutable characteristics. This is not a country that we should accept their tolerate, and it's not enough to say that we oppose it. It's not enough. We have to be big. We have to be a bold. We be concrete and tangible, positive, optimistic, relentless against. The demonization of the left their ambassadors of darkness. About time that we start to spread truth and light and the American way of life, we can and will win. On these ideas and on these issues? WE'RE NOT GONNA win with people like Senator Mike Brown that advance, ridiculous ideas and pander to the radical elements of the left instead.

GSMC SciFi Podcast Episode 231: The End of Fall
"Golden state. Media concepts side. PODCAST. Together. We dive into the world. Scifi science fiction from APSOS Star Trek Star walk the walk. Resident Evil all the. Science fiction movie from the factor marvel or DC. Golden state media cuts cy five cats. You'll never get sized stations the same way again. First. Exclusive. Think? Sunday! And, you're listening to the GMC SCI-FI PODCAST brought to you by the GMC podcast network and hosted today but Keith. And, today is the day we should all be really excited. We are finally finishing our discussion on. The fall of hyperion. It's been a long time coming to get through the second book. I think at this point. I am just going to commit and go through all four books. Even though the next two are going to be. Probably decidedly different. From the first to either that or it will be some sort of thing in reverse Yeah, there's been. Substantial number of developments at the end of this book Things that I did not expect things that I did expect. A lot of twists and turns and a lot of them revolving around a couple of characters. That we're way more important than we actually probably thought they were. but yeah, so we're going to get right into it so i. don't remember exactly what it is that I talked about last time, but this time we so I might repeat myself a couple times, but in the interest of it being the end of the book. I am going to kind of go through everything so last time, and as usual we'll start out with Casado so we thought that he was dead. and. We were indeed correct Casado's dead. You all thought I was Gonna say he's alive now. Because odd is definitely dead. But at the end of his life, there is a pretty big plot twist that I. Think will take up a substantial amount of talking time for. This particular episode We find out who is and I'm sure we've all had a lot of suspicions. I thought Manetti could be the child of. Johnny and Braun, I thought that Moneda could be just some person from the future I was wrong on one account, but right on another. She is obviously someone from the future, but the person who she is from the future is someone who we've been familiar with the entire time, and that is drum roll. Rachel Weintrob so. That's very. When Casado's to die, he asks Mineta. What his or her real name is and she says I'm not known by Moneda just yet, but I am known by blank and. Casado cries, and then I think he proceeds to die right after that and we don't know who it is, and then there's like five more chapters until we figure out who it is. But, it is Rachel Weintraub, so Mineta has been Rachel this entire time which really good. Really, good way to write that in Dan Simmons congratulations I did not catch that There were some maybe some indications there but I think that. that overall he did a really good job of kind of obscuring. The fact that Rachel Weintraub was Moneda. She. Definitely seems to have type Assad and Emilio are very similar in their drive and passions, and kind of in their demeanor as well which I found to be interesting like that. There's consistency in her character development in that way, so what we find out is that. Rachel Weintraub. Is Moneda and I'm just going to skip over a few things. We'll go back to them so that we can talk more about this, but Rachel Weintrob, Aka Moneda. Interacts with pretty much everybody except for the consul in the last few bits of the actually even the console to in the last few bits of the the novel, and in some interesting way in a really meaningful way. She's kind of the glue that holds the group together. She's the reason that the console is so concerned with making it back to the group. because. He believes that he has You know an obligation to Weintraub and he wants to see that particular part of the journey through to its fruition. Weintraub is only at the tombs because he's waiting for Rachel after having a given her to the strike per her request and then. Bron Lamia Martin Saintliness Casado. All of them are very and d'auray are very concerned with the outcome of the Weintraub Arc. If you will and I think that one of the main reasons that we kind of are focused on this. Simmons chooses to focus on this in particular because really. Kind of represents this very interesting anomaly in. Everything that's happening around them of this like return to innocence in some capacity because she's aging in reverse and because of this returned to. Get this like socially obligated parental. Energy. From all of the characters involved in the story, and so the console Salinas everybody are very invested in the outcome of. Of Her situation as far as the MARLINS, sickness is concerned. Now, you may be wondering. How do we get from wine? Trump giving her up to the The shrike to? Finding out that she lives not only like. Lives but live so far into the future that she's actually able to become a controller of the strike, and we have johnny to thank for that, so we learn that Johnny dies. Or Not Johnny Rather. Severin, we learned that seven dies on old earth, which has been relocated to some new place that nobody knows exactly in the galaxy where it is. and. When, he dies there I cannot remember. Leigh Hunt that's his name. Gosh Darn it if I have any more sensitive to start with, I can't remember their name. Leigh Hunt the primary advisor to gladstone becomes one of the like the main character in. Severance story and S. he goes to his death his biological death. The death of his body, and not of his persona, he kind of. Begins to view certain hunt as the seven figure, so Jonathan Severin was John Keats, like friend and caretaker at the end of his life, and he was also a very devoutly religious man who tried to convert Keats to Catholicism or Christianity and Keats could not or would not rather convert, and so that was the point of conflict between the two of them though I don't know if I would call it conflict towards the end of his life I. Think Keats may have inverted I'm not totally sure. But if he did it was because of Severin and so seven. Is this important figure? So when the new keats persona who is seven realizes that he's pretty much. He is John Keats then Leigh Hunt kind of takes that seven persona, and cares for him, and his sacrificial towards him, and just really has a powerful bond with him. And when he dies, he buries his body, according to Severin's instructions, despite the fact that the strike is watching the entire time, and there's like this horse that knows exactly where it's supposed to go and what it's supposed to do, which I found to be very interesting. because. There's no other people on Earth supposedly with with hunt and. Severin an after seven dis what the will actually during the process of seven diners, a bunch of like Biblical type illusions Leigh Hunt. Slaps the horse as it's moving because he wants it to go faster, and there's a specific story in the Bible where there's a prophet who smacks his donkey. It ends up being this big thing about like patients and care of animals and things that take care of you. Treating, your neighbor, while and things like that standard, but Biblical parable type things, and so it's funny that that was referenced in there especially. Because that I think that donkey is. That story with donkeys on the same road that Jesus takes to. Bethlehem or Damascus or something like that? It's IT'S A. It's a setting that is repeated throughout the Bible, and so he buries salmon. He says here lies a man whose name is written water and for the entirety of severance death process. He's quoting directly from A to immigration. Earn which I think is by Keats. I'd have to Google that which I'm not. GonNa do right now because I'm in the middle of recording, but oh, to a Gratien is like a classic turn of the century poem that I believe is by John Keats. Affiliated with John Keats, and the whole point of it is just kind of like we are transitioning from this time of antiquity, and from glorifying all these ideas, and what was the point of glorifying? What is the point of life? What is the point of death very powerful poem? I highly recommend it but yeah, it's pretty much. Verbatim. There's like slight variations that basically are equivalent to it. A lot of it has to do with the racing history, and like figuring out how it is that the dead deserve to be remembered or honored, and so I thought that was really cool that that was included in their. After seven dies. Hunt goes to. The Colosseum because there in Rome and sees a giant far caster portal that he cannot enter which will come into play towards the end of the story and we'll get there. Don't worry but yeah he gets he gets. He finds a portal, but can't go through it because all he wants to do is return to the web because he doesn't know what's going on and nobody really does except for Severin who's been able to visit people in their dreams. and. How does that all tie in with Rachel wide trouble? Well here we go, so severin dies, and is then his persona is trapped in the data sphere slash mega sphere slash Meta's fear, and if we remember from the last episode, I talked about how the Meta's fear is where the beings of collective consciousness resigned, and so it's kind of like the realm of the Gods if you will severn. Severn his terrified of this place. It's part of the reason why when he goes to die, and he is offered like deities offered to be deified he chooses not to. He chooses instead to take the role of John the Baptist where he is more of the harbinger for the one to calm, rather than the one to come, and so there's some hypothesis as to who that would be. Because it's basically going to be the person who bridges the gap between. A machine AI existence in an organic existence. That's basically the perfect fruition of what the technical was trying to achieve with Cyprian's, but when Johnny dies. Sorry when seven dies, he's able to interact with pretty much the entire universe in some capacity very much in a similar way to a god, but more like a demi. God, rather than God God, I would guess I would kind of phrase it, so he travels immediately to appearin at the time of which are the time which. Wine trump has given up his daughter to the shrike and Severin Takes Rachel Weintraub from the shrike and gives her back to. Weintraub at some point, but I don't know exactly how the Times line up there, but yeah he takes Rachel from the Shrike and that is a very important plot point now this all correlates with another thing that's going on with Braun laming up and Martin Salinas. So if you remember from last episode, I was talking about how Brown Lamy had gone to the Palace of the Shrike, and of was able to see it for what it really is. It's this giant I guess building where everybody who's in. It is hooked up to. A like the same umbilical cord that run Lamia was hooked up to in this finks, but they're hooked up to that in order to get them on the tree of the Shrike, and the tree of the Shrike we find out is supposed to be like a giant pain magnet for the empathy portion of the triune human. God that the Mechanical God is currently at war with so the tree of pain is supposed to dry out that empathy portion of that God. But what the Mechanical God doesn't understand. Is that that empathy portion occupies every individual and. And so it cannot be centralized, and so it will draw certain things or people to it, but not the unit as a whole or the the thing as a whole, and so when Lamey a fine saline. She frees him, and he is alive well when he wakes up, he says you know the strike is right behind you right and the chapter cuts there we literally six more chapter, two more chapters, which ends up being like three hours worth of listening before we get back to what happens with them, and what happens with them. Is that Braun Lamia? Actually you know what we're going to do that right after this break kind of lost track of time, so we're gonNA take a quick break and then I'll tell you what happens with Brian Lima Salinas WanNa.

Actually I'm really sorry about. Dan Simmons did it to me so now I'm doing it all of you. Have you read the book then? You wouldn't be left on a cliffhanger because you know exactly what I'm going to say next or I guess maybe I don't know I mean I like to think these discussions are purposeful for people who've still read the book just because. I thoroughly enjoy doing them. This book was incredible so. Yes John Severin A. Has Gotten Rachel Weintrob. And then Lamy has rescued. Martin Salinas which we did not think that she would do. Most likely at least I definitely didn't think that she was gonna do that ever until she went back to the strike, Pal specifically looking for him, in which case I was like okay well, he's there then she's rescuing him so. Whatever SNAKES UP, says there's a strike brought Lamia turns around. And then apparently starts to like walk on air literally, and then just chatters. The strike destroys it completely. Without really doing much at all I think she kicks it and it shatters into a million pieces. And so salinas is like oh well. Wolf. Because the strike has been referred to as the Grendel of hyperion for the entire two books, and so I am. Surprised that that kind of circled around, of course that's I guess. Relatively it's to be expected in some capacities So. Yeah, the strike. At least that particular strike is gone guns. Oh! Yeah Weird for sure. So. Lamy escapes with Salinas, who can barely walk because he has been experiencing the tree of thorns for Gosh knows how long it's a synthetic reality, so. In some capacity he was actually on the tree of Thornton and other capacities. He was not actually on the tree of thorns and. There's really no time he's specifically mentions as he's on the tree that there is no referendum. There's no reference by which he can acquire. How much time he's been on. The tree just feels like an eternity, and so everyone is on that treaty. You know it feels that particular way Which I find it interesting that after the strike is destroyed, it doesn't ruin the illusion of the shrike palace in allow for them to rescue a bunch of other people who are also permanently hooked up to being on the tree. Sad King! Billy is on that tree. And what that says to me, is that like the umbilical cord that you're attached to that? which I think, it's interesting. They use umbilical cord as if like the mother of. Humanity is paying which I think is a very interesting Take on religion and on a number of other things. So that's neither that's neither here, nor there specifically or particularly Regardless. I would have liked to see them. Be Able to rescue. Some other people I think that could have been potentially really cool, but Yeah! So they escape, they get back to Weintraub. And then. As they get back to win, tribe, the I think the time line is where there's that the consul also comes back, which is weird because the consul left like what seems to be an eternity ago, but is able to like. Go meet the Astros, and then come back. In a relatively quick amount of time, actually very fast amount of time. I guess we should kind of resolve where the console stands so I, think last time I had mentioned that he is not absolved of his sins necessarily, but he is punished to live on, and so, and of course, the Elaine in the Melia Cortez are not necessarily privy to Like. Any punishment from the ousters, the answer actually that seems like the answers are kind of concerned with making sure that everybody lives as much as possible. It seems like they kind of have a true value for life that goes beyond what the rest of the hegemony has, as far as value for life is concerned. Which I think is interesting because the web. And the hegemony referred to the outdoors as savages, and as individuals who like mutate their body exclusively for the purposes of war, but what we find out is the book is ending as that a lot of the mutations that are brought into the fold of the human genome by the ousters, scientists are for the purpose of tariff warming planets that have no life on them rather than tear forming planets that already have life on. Another interesting thing that we find out in this particular or in the this last section. Is that. The cruiser forms were actually created by. The. Core and so that was a big twist. That kind of gets almost overlooked in some capacities The CRISTA forms were intent. Their intended purpose was to perpetuate the existence of a small group of humans from which the core could continue to harvest the necessary computing power of. Neurons in order to perpetuate their existence, and advanced their evolution, and so it didn't matter necessarily have. Thought, the individuals that were constantly reincarnated reincarnated actually were what mattered was that they had the actual biological brain mass of available to the core, and so the the Kora the ones way back from the very first chapter of Appearin are actually. In. From that potential future, and what I think is kind of. What's happening with as far as the time travel is concerned with this whole novel is that? All possible universes exist in some capacity. But they only exist in the future. And not necessarily in the present. And so because they only exist in the future, and not in the present, all possible futures exist. And therefore the present experiences, all possible futures before the future that is actually going to exist comes to fruition or alternatively all possible futures exist. Now, that'd be the right way to phrase. It yeah, so all according to Simmons. And in this book, all possible futures exist including the futures in which. The pilgrimage is unable to get the information back to gladstone. The death bomb goes off and everybody WHO's in the tombs, is implanted with a cruiser form, and the crucial forms permanently revived them and keep them alive indefinitely, basically as like round little slaves to the core, and there needs kind of like the Matrix in some capacity, but much worse, because there isn't even a false reality for them to live in the matrix would be kind of like the tree of thorns except for instead of living a full life. You just live one. Thing for eternity which would. Just really suck. So, yeah so. That's that's the the tree of Thorns. And all those things In the Coosa form like I said made by the techno core. Very ingenious idea in in my opinion I really love the fact that we find out that the techno is the one behind, or are the ones behind the cruiser forms, and that the Cora are a result of the technical desire to basically enslave humanity and reverse their evolution capacity, and it also makes so much more sense as to why. hoyt, and Lenore or Houghton d'auray would view the Form as curse rather than as any kind of blessing in any capacity, especially since every time they get revived, they get closer and closer to what the core of our which are just basically thoughtless, sexless listless. Entities vessels for brain. That doesn't function. Effectively basically and so. All of that happens now? What we also find out is that I'd mentioned that we find out that the technical exists within the far caster network like a bunch of spider in a web or rats in a wall kind of the way, the metaphor that's used and so ultimately now. We're going to get back to Maine Gladstone and what it is that she's been up to this entire time, so. Of course, when the planet start getting destroyed outright, we find out that it is not in fact, the ousters who are attacking those planets, the ousters tell the console. We're not the ones making these attacks during their war council. Don't mention that last week. If not hey, big twist, the ousters meet with the console. Say we the only planet we're trying to take is I period, and it's just because it's important for the future and y'all don't understand it just yet, but we do because we've been out in space and space. Time is relative, so maybe we've experienced something where they have access to something. Or what have you? I hope that that gets explained later on. I guess before we get to that I should all resolve that whole stuff with Rachel when trump so after everybody gets back from the console comes back, and he meets wine, trump and Salinas and Lamia all at the time tombs. And when they're at the Time Tombs, Future Rachel Aka Mo. Neta appears and basically kind of gives them all of the information that they needed to know in order to understand what it was that was going on. She tells them that she is Mo- Neta she tells. Wine Sol Weintrob that He or she gives she's the one who gives saw. Back the baby Rachel Weintrob and then says hey, by the way I'm not asking you to do this, but someone needs to raise this child, because it's going to age normally now, and if you raise it normally, then it's going to turn into me and so like I shouldn't be here, but I kind of am here because. I don't know she says something about a time. Travel, council, or future council passed council so the implication there is that Moneda is from some potential future where time travel has been achieved by the human race in order to. Interact with the past in some capacity and so. She basically enlightens. Everybody tells Brown Lamia how important the child is that she's carrying. She asks. Saul Weintraub to basically raise her again, but he has to it someplace else, so he has to leave the group, and it doesn't really say where he ends up going which I find to be very interesting I have a feeling met based off of the ending of this book. The next couple books will probably have him pretty heavily involved as well as Rachel wine. Trump's new upbringing pretty heavily involved I imagine those books are going to play with time even more than these books dead. Simmons is on a really good job of being at least somewhat consistent. I know that riding time travel stuff is. Nigh impossible quite frequently, so that can be really frustrating. For Writers, and for readers as well so. Yeah. Rachel Weintrob Aka on comes back from the future. Tells everybody what's going on. Thanks everybody for everything that they did kind of and then basically says she has to go, and then salt wine. Trump also vanishes with baby Rachel into some undetermined spot in the future or in space time, or what have you that nobody knows where he ends up, so that's kind of the resolution with the pilgrimage at least for the time being so all that to say the following people are dead when our hoyt and General Assad. Alive are the Console Braun. Lamia Saul Weintrob, Martin, silenced and I think that's four out of seven, so and then, of course we get to Ray, but he's not necessarily a part of the original group that was sent to high periods so. All those guys are alive. They're still on hyperion and they're going to be stuck there because. Flashback Demand Gladstone, which I was talking about just a minute ago. Many gladstone gets the information from the console from Theo Lane rather that it is not the ouster fleet that is attacking and destroying planets, and she's like okay well, then what the heck it must be the techno core. She then gets a fat line from the one of the people, the guy who had promoted for speaking up in the meaning, even though as seniors told him not to. She gets a fat land from him, and he basically says hey, look. We captured a ship of the ousters, and we're trying to dissect this ouster, and they cut it open, and it is not an ouster. It's like He. Flashes Bright White Light, and then heals itself kind of thing, so it's very obviously the techno court that is doing this so now it is of the utmost importance that mainly gladstone the core is, and she decides that it is time for them to sever the chord between the core and human beings, and the cord that his tying them together is the forecaster network which is kind of representative of the apex of technology, because it's like instantaneous travel amongst worlds, and all sorts of things, and so gladstone sends out a giant transmission that says hey. Forecasters are done were destroying them all. Everybody freaks out and then mainly gladstone blows up every forecaster in the network. All over and we're GONNA. Talk about what the results of that are right after this next commercial break. Tired of searching the vast jungle of podcasts listen close and here this out.

Going through the jam packed ending. Follow appearing. So right before the break I was talking about what was going on with. Mina Gladstone and The rest of. The. The web I guess I'll of human existence. In this particular book, and kind of talking about how. That is going for them. The answer is not well. Gladstone decides she's going to destroy the entire fuck forecaster network because the far Castro network, while it is the thing that has bound people together because of its ability to allow people to instantaneously travel from one place to another. The unfortunate reality of is that that is kind of. It's not God it's not God like in some capacity, and I think that there's this is where like one of the main dichotomies that. Is kind of. Really happening behind the scenes throughout the entirety of these books is is where this is where it occurs primarily There is a dichotomy between what is divine, and what is human or machine, and so and ultimately I think machine is just kind of a derivative of human, according to Simmons so. The reason or my reasoning behind this as I'm sure you're all wondering. How did I draw this conclusion? Is that. There's a bunch of reference that is made by individuals from the future by people from techno core by the Church of the shrike that humanity has accrued some sort of gigantic debt that needs to be repaid in some capacity, and there's this reference throughout the novel to the idea of time debt. Where if you travel from one planet to another, you accrue a time debt that is different than the time that you experience so you'll age at a different rate. Than like let's say you have a wife on a planet. If you accrue a five year time, she will have aged five years further than you will have in the same amount of experiential time and so. There's just like this weird relativity that happens there, and so because of the far caster network individuals are able to bypass that. Time debt that would normally be accrued from traveling through space in addition. The human human race has basically wiped out almost every form of intelligent life that it's ever run into on any planet that it has Tara formed, and it hasn't been tear forming planets that were. Uninhabited, it was tear forming planets, or they were tear forming plants that were inhabited by like somewhat intelligent life. There's a mention of the fact that there were centaurs on Mars Centaurs Morrison Tours I. Don't know, but there were sent. You know half human half horse people on Mars and all of those individuals or those creatures were wiped out when Mars was colonized and then. then. There's the Modal Islands on Maui Covenant those were semi sentient beings. The dolphins that were brought from Earth were considered by Simmons in this novel for the purposes of the novel to have semi sentient, and have the potential to evolve into an intelligent life form, and so there's been this massive amount of debt and blood crude by the human race between time, space and matter. That needs to be repaid in the shrike is kinda supposed to represent that final atonement, because it's the creation of humans that is able to achieve the thing that humans have been trying to prevent all other creation from achieving. Whether it's consciously or subconsciously, and so those things will that thing is the thing that will provide the reconciliation of the you know they will I guess collect on the debt if you will and so. when gladstone decides to blow up the. Forecasting network I think it's kind of supposed to be indicative of the fact that like no matter how much progress we think we've made. There's always a cost to it. And what is the cost? Is the cost eventually going to be worth? In this case, the entirety of humanity is the cost worth our souls I think is kind of what Simmons is trying to get at, and for such a basic thing you know are the consequences of the action you know are the Do the ends just to. Find. The means is such a simple question. To kind of just propose, but for Simmons to propose it in such an advanced way when we've got this like just light years of cognitive distance away from the interactions that we have on our on a daily basis for him to kind of like literally basically just have us look at technology and say was this bed of technology. Was this convenience? was this this connectivity between us in another human being? Was it worth it? Is it worth dying for? And ultimately gladstone has to say like. The whole human race and like literally leave entire plants that whose economy rely exclusively on the fact that forecasters exist leave those planets to die, because there are like urban planets that have no farming and don't have the ability to form where there's not going to be any food, and like billions and billions of people will will die either like from starvation. A number of people died because they're in the middle of far caster portal's when they all get shut off, so they just like freeze in the vastness of space, or they get like arms and legs chopped off as the portals close and so. The consequences are pretty widespread from this that gladstone takes. This is also the last thing that she does. As CEO. Gorbachov. Guy's name or something like that. It's probably not Gorbachev because I know that's a real life politician or was real life politician. Regardless Gorbachev is the one who the Russian gentlemen Russian sounding gentleman is the one who takes over the The. What's it called? The web or the hegemony, or at least what's left of it, because really the only thing that's left for him to rule is to run I. Guess Rule is probably the wrong word. The only thing left for him to run is. Tau City Center, which is the planet. Because as soon as the far cast portals are destroyed now everybody is pretty much isolated from each other in every regard, except for one line of Communication, which they call fat line and fat line is the specific frequency or wavelength that humans were able to access on their own through their own research that allows for relatively instantaneous communication between like over vast distances, so fat line is the one form of communication that the techno court isn't really involved in, and that's why fat line can go through the anti trump fields at on hyperion. It's why fat line can go from Maine a gladstone on city center to the console. Out On hyperion without the coronavirus -sarily. Knowing that it is going there knowing that it's going that's funny. So. What we find out though is that. Fat Line is the fat line. Frequency is equivalent to the idea of the void that binds, and if you remember correctly, the Triune God of the humans is the void that binds empathy and intellect, and so the void that binds is. Is essentially equivalent to fat line, because it is all of the space and time through which communication has to travel, and so when we get to the end of the book. The fat line frequency no longer works. There's voice that comes out over the top of the frequency. The says like for now this doesn't work, and then all communication goes debt, and so we're in the fat line is supposed to be like an absolutely. Like impeccable form of communication, it can't be interfered with they can't be hacked can't be listened in on like it's coated in very specific ways, and so the fact that it just no longer works for no reason is very indicative of the fact that like in Simmons novel there is there are God's in some capacity, or there are things or beings in the universe can operate outside of the realm of what would be considered logical to that universe and I think. For you know in my opinion I think that's super freaking cool but that's neither here, nor there necessarily. But. Overall I think the big takeaway from that we were talking about the separation between divine and human. Now there is a refocusing in the novel on what it is to be human, and what it is to be involved with people who are immediately in your vicinity, and I think that in some capacity, the punishment of not being able to communicate across the galaxy previously as part of the atonement, because it feels like there's some sort of necessary karmic cycle or something like that. That's happening in this novel to where there's no way for you to not end up in a situation where you are beholden to something or some. One for the consequences of your actions and so gladstone of course is removed from power. She sends out a last couple of messages basically saying I'm making the decision to blow up all of the far casting networks. You have like ten seconds before it all blows up an in that span Lanar or father. d'auray was supposed to go back to Pasha, but did not. Because he was visited in a dream by Severin so severin saves. During his life, by not letting him go through the far caster, when the forecasters blow up, so derogates to live because of seven visiting him in a dream, and that is one of the other things that seven kind of does is like resolve. These loose ends Soviet remember to raise the pope. He gets. He's unable to return the Vatican, but he's still the pope, but then the communication cuts out, so he's not the pope. Then there's rumors of a new Pope I. Don't know there's a little bit of confusion at the end of the book in this regard, but far as the government in the hegemony. And all of that is concerned. For, all effective intents and purposes the hegemony no longer exists so the the way in which people have lived before has been permanently altered by that, and when the forecasting network is destroyed, it also destroys the techno core in some capacity now we don't know if the techno course still exists somehow in some sort of like small. Amount I would imagine that the machine God of the techno course still exists in some way, and because I've kind of mentioned this idea that. Because a a god is. Created by in according to a goddess created by the power of a collective consciousness when it comes, or as soon as it becomes, comes into existence, it simultaneously exists as its final iteration, and as its current iteration, because it will eventually evolve into the final ration- of Perfection, which other creatures are not able to do, and so in the fact that it can exist in a final form of perfection that exists outside of time and space when it initially is brought into being simultaneously exists as perfect, an imperfect and I would wager to guess that the. The techno core machine. God does the same thing and so I don't think there's necessarily a way for humans to get rid of it. Because at some point it existed, therefore, it will always exist and I think that that is kind of a metaphor in capacities for the way in which religion or God exists to Simmons in society because I don't think that it's necessarily true. That Simmons would identify himself as a theorist or claim that this is what he thinks of actual God I think it's just a theory that is kind of being proposed. In an interesting and unique way. That is going to help us to understand the story. More help us to understand the universe, and in mainly get us to think about the way in which we think about God, and that is one of the main reasons why I've loved this book so much. Is that the cognitive distance that's created by the effective writing of Simmons? Is just. Profoundly impactful and thoughtful or thought provoking rather in regards to how it is that we've you got and we've you religion. He's constantly talking about how it religion is going to survive has to find a way to evolve, and because it has to find a way to evolve. That implies that like God evolves in some capacity at least I think that's kind of what Simmons is trying to say, because that was one of to raise main reasons. Or main belief structure, there's a specific saint whose name is escaping me right now, who? d'auray kind of follows or believes in I. Guess that's proposed. That God evolves alongside its creation, and so that's been kind of an important theme for us to remember as we've been going throughout this book, and so I think that Simmons is trying to convince us as individuals like. Hey, maybe this is a way in which God could exist in the capacity that we could find more acceptable, and that would allow us to behave in ways that are more prosperous for us as a species and as individuals so. Really really enjoyed that portion of the book, so that kind of wraps up with gladstone and the hegemony, so we're gonNA just kind of go through what the epilogue has the say and I'm an apprentice hypothesize with the next couple of books are going to be about all. That will be right after this last commercial break. TV has changed over time. Streaming has become the new norm. That's why golden state media concepts television podcast dives had I to the world cord cutting wants to be on the mood of what's hot, Netflix, or if it's not a preference, what about original shows in Hulu? We've got you covered. Join us as we filmed the blank and talk about movies to stream, and what show you should be binging? This is a golden state media concepts television podcast. Just. Don't. Well. I. Finally going to talk about the actual end of fall of hyperion. Yeah, so ready before the break I just kind of wrapped up everything that was in the book proper, and now we get to go into the epilogue. Maybe. Give us some indication as to what it is. The rest of the series could possibly be about because. It feels like pretty much. Everything's been wrapped up in some capacity. All of the pilgrims have kind of either. I guess they. They've all ended up back on. the ones that were going to die. The ones that we're gonna live lived Mana Gladstone. Effectively destroyed the. Core by blowing up all of the. Forecaster portals thus destroying the far caster network, which destroyed the technical ability to harness the energy of the universe of human beings in their cognitive processing power I guess as well as like all of the data sphere and all that. So, everything's done effectively. So what's in the epilogue. Stuff that was in the epilogue. So. The epilogue kind of opens, and it's everybody back on Hyperion, and they're all having a little party. Which I think is funny. It almost you know in the first book they epilogue was basically kind of like the beginning of The wizard of Oz and it's funny as the epilogue in this book is kind of like the end of wizard of Oz in a lot of ways, including the way in which they play somewhere over the rainbow. which is very sweet? So. This is kind of like one of the first times in the book that we actually get to see a lot of like personalities on display in a social setting where there's no. Like motivations outside of just interacting with each other and having a good time, so that was nice and very pleasant, so the epilogue sees everybody on Hyperion, like three years or five years, maybe even longer than that in the future. Sol Weintraub has been gone the entire time. Nobody has seen him. the time tombs are behaving just as oddly as they always have. But now there's a couple of new. There's a couple of new features so the door to the Sphinx has been pretty much closed except for till like a select few that get to go through it. My guess is that the Sphinx is some sort of. Like thing from the future that was made by the same people who have that like future timeline. That Rachel Weintraub is occupying. Yes when my guess would be that they are interacting with the past by. Using, the Sphinx, and so they only let certain people through based on who they've decided. They're gonNA. Let through which you know. Doesn't necessarily mean that were getting another good book for sure or anything like that. I did just find that kind of interesting, and then let's see what else do we got going on. Everybody's GonNa have a party because the consoles decided that he is going to take a journey somewhere. I don't remember if it says specifically where it is that he's going. I think the goal is for him to find mainly gladstone. Go back to. The web and just kind of rendezvous. And figure out. What exactly is going on there? In some capacity? Because pretty much, everybody is curious. For Maybe Salinas. He used not curious in the slightest. He yeah. Yeah, I don't know why said he Saline. This isn't necessarily that relevant. The consoles decided to go back along with the Elaine. AMELIO AARON DEZ is looking to go back to see his to his family. And since the console is the only one with real like interstellar space travel capabilities. That's where he's going. Bron Lamia has decided to stay. On high period has salinas. Let's see who else was alive. One two three Saline assume brought Lamia the console. Why am I missing who a wine? Trump's already gone. Yeah, okay, so Salinas and Lamia are staying on Hyperion y drops gone. The console is leaving. They're throwing a big party. Things have kind of gone back to normal. The strike has appeared for. Years. and. Saintliness says even the strike did appear then Brian Lamy would be able to turn it into glass and shattered like she did last time, which is kind of an interesting thing. And then it gets brought up that. Seven Jonathan sovereign appeared to everybody in their dreams, including the console. Except for Bron-, Lamia and so brand name is very disappointed by this because as we know, the father of her child is the original keats persona so in some capacity seeing Jonathan seven I, think would bring her a little bit of closure or something like that so that she could feel a bit better about the situation if I had to guess. I would wager that she. No, she's not feeling super. Happy about the fact that she's GonNa. Be Raising this child by. It's by yourself. Without you know Jonathon. Keats been having the potential. Be involved at all, but. When she's on her way back to the to her house, she decides to stop in the gardens and I'm pretty sure. These gardens are a direct reference to. The gardens where Jesus walks around before he's crucified. because. In the Garden Jonathan Seven appears to run Lamia where she proceeds to say you're not real tries to touch him, and then her hands go through him. which is another biblical reference, because when Jesus comes back from dying? Nobody believes that it's really him. He says. Here's stick your fingers in my wounds I. Promise it's me that kind of thing so. That is what happens with seven. He proceeds to tell her that he is He has refused the Messiah title and he says he's the one who's supposed to be the kind of like the. The way maker if you will for the the the Messiah, so he's more of John The baptist. Which knowing this book, you'll end up beheaded in some sort of metaphor kway. The he kind of already was. You kind of already was killed by the Shrike, which I find to be interesting. That could be kind of a good reference to John the Baptist. John, the Baptist's head is ultimately chopped off. By somebody's wife whose name? I can't remember right now, but. It's not necessarily super important I mean it is relatively important. But regardless. He basically tells Brian Lania that the child that she's carrying is in fact, the Messiah she tells her he tells her that At the Messiah but this, God figures this this connected thing between machine, mind and human mind, and then he also tells her that he had no interference with the strike when she. Destroyed it, which to her of course is weird because. She didn't know that she had special powers in any capacity, so there's also a potential kind of hint that it was the child again. If this child exists some sort of like perfect being than it would exist like. Simultaneously in its juvenile form in its adult form, because if it existed at any point in time, during which could travel back in time, it would exist in that capacity at all times because. The final eventuality of it's being would be able to exist cohesively with the current eventuality of it's being. Complicated I now. So, Seven reveals that. They have a little bit of discussion. Just kind of about like the general, future of things where Jonathan's seven is about. The mets fear about whether or not the technical course still around which he doesn't believe that they are. And whether earn where he's going to go from there because he's not ready to go into the mets fear and exists to there permanently so Brian Lamia mix suggestions about why don't you occupy all these other places with a is, and eventually they land on him occupying. The, AI, in the consoles ship, which allows for like one of the first funny anecdotes of the entire book to where the console will ask, the ships ai to do something it will respond in verse from John Keats Poems. which I think is hilarious. Martin Salinas. Is Martin, Salinas or Brand Lamia ends the book by reading the fall of Hyperion, which is part of the incomplete hyperion cantos by Jonathon Keats. and. That's pretty much it. I think that about covers everything. This book was really dense. And it's hard to know whether or not. I covered everything that I wanted to cover. It has a lot of commentary on like religious ideas on spirituality and other things that are. I don't want to say relevant, but they're relevant to like every day examinations that we have of what it looks like for us to exist in the universe that we exist in so. I think that it's. This book is definitely a good sequel to the first and I have no idea what he's GonNa talk about in the next book. which I think is called. Of and Damian and Damian or Relevant diamond. In on I don't even know. I guess and Damian is the child that Braun Lamy conceived with With the original keats persona and demean could also be the name of the machine God and the. Book about how that came about? I am going to be reading it and talking about it on the podcast so i. don't want to like spend too much time hypothesizing about what it could possibly be about. So as far as the fall of appearing is concerned, compared to the first book. I book had a much more. It felt cohesive message that it was trying to send about the human condition. This one in particular felt like it was a little bit more socially. Focused on its commentary at dealt a lot with the way in which people handle political strife, as well as conflict as on a scale larger than just like local conflict I was relatively impressed with its execution. The diction, the syntax everything in this book are impeccable, just like in the first one stylistically helped me to understand Dan Simmons stylistically a little bit more just because the first book was so. Focused on being sure that it was emulating the the Canterbury Tales that I think that it kind of obscured a little bit of what it is. The Dan, Simmons would normally do in a novel, which is fine. I really appreciated what it was. He was doing with that first book, and it absolutely stands on its own. You don't need to read. The second or even third of the fourth books really. I think the first two by themselves would be more than enough if you want to stop there. There's some interesting cliffhangers and Simpson, a good job of kind of like teasing things that we could want more of but I think that it's interesting that he kind of brings. Ninety nine percent of the conflict to a close in this book but I think that the reason that there's still potential for more that they're even are more books is because of the idea of playing with time so much in the way that it's cyclical. and. Linear simultaneous simultaneously just makes it. A really effective medium or universe rather for Simmons to operate in and right lots of interesting stories in so I am looking forward to reading the third and fourth books. Again, I am curious what they'll be about. I hope that include some of the original characters I definitely grew in fondness for all of the characters even saline at the end of the book. Actually Kinda. Liked him as a character because. He, he kind of. He tells Brian how much he appreciates her. She asks him if he was really on the tree, and he says it doesn't really matter was really on it. I felt like I was really on it, so I was both really on it, and not really on it, and that's. I think that's kind of somewhat of the message of this book as well. There's a lot of different messages in this book, and you should definitely check it out I'm looking forward to talking about the next book in the series in the next few days, so look forward for that.

LeBron's motivation, Melo comeback?, Griffin talks LBJ, Lamar Jackson contradictions
"All right I'm Jason Wind Lot. He's Marcellus Wiley that do this. I want to speak for yourself. The most fearless show in sports coming up. We'll tell you Carmelo Louis Anthony's interview today help them get another shot in the N._B._A.. And one hour from now we'll get into the latest one of the Bron James David Griffin feud. We start today with the bronze future. King James has no shortage of motivation for Seventeenth N._B._A.. Season his Lakers missed the playoffs last season season Kawhi Leonard spurned the opportunity to work alongside him and instead declared war on James and the Lakers by joining the rival Clippers Lebron was mildly criticized for making a spectacle of himself and his sons Aye you games bronze Internet worshippers created the impression that advised him to stay off the court during games. He's is not playing in was akin to being a CO conspirator in the assassination of J._F._k.. M._l._K. and Malcolm X. and Lebron's former boss in Cleveland David David Griffin painted an unflattering portrait of what is like to work for King James Most Damning Griffin said James has lost his animal desire to win yesterday Lakers forward cow Kuzina cried on Cari champion shoulder on E._S._p._N.. Telling the daytime broadcaster quote this off season you you see just people slandering his name and saying this about you know he's been super-motivated this off season working between shooting movies. He's in the gym. He's in the gym early night. Whatever so just be locked in as the biggest thing being ready for it? All are the last time we've seen Lebron served. This much. Motivation was in the aftermath of the two thousand eleven N._B._A.. Finals Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavericks Embarrassed James Lanes in those finals Lebron meltdown was justifiably criticized came back the next year and won the M._v._p.. Award despite playing just sixty two games and he won the first first of his three N._B._A.. Titles I was eight years ago. Lebron was a relative puppet as twenty seven. He'll be thirty five this season. This is rocky three Kennedy fat and Happy Lebron James Restore. The eye of the Tiger E._S._p._N.'s Day McMenamin road a solid piece yesterday reminded everyone Lebron's Ron Jones words backup Griffin's Critique Lebron has stated that he has nothing left to prove as a basketball player on E._S._p._N.. Is More than an athlete Lebron Brag that after he beat the seventy three win warriors in the N._B._A.. Finals that he surpassed Michael Jordan is the greatest of all time abroad is quite pleased with himself. He's angry angry and motivated now will be bored by J ory worse by March will be crystal clear to everyone that the Lakers can't compete with lenders. There's clippers. This is the end of the Lebron James Rule of the N._B._A.. I joined the desks. Now is Fox sports radio host Godly Marcellus. I'll start would you yes. We'll the criticism this off season motivating the broad. I mean you know it is one. Let's just set the record straight. We know that greatness. This is never absent a motivation. He's still great still all N._B._A.. Player we know Lebron James is well. Let's talk about this level of motivation. Maybe we some some additives to this motivation. A lot of people were shooting at Lebron. Lebron finally took notice at least he wanted to address that I am noticing I think so you can have it your way Michael Jordan's way which is a way to the hall of Fame Speech Cry Out and let you know her jaw or you can do Lebron just like I hear you and I'm coming and it's amazing that two things are at play mostly the doing of the media that Lebron James has to understand this is just the nature of the Bee's one is. There's a thin line between love and hate the brawn James last year was ducking in the sun and nobody said the damn thing thank two thousand eighteen. I remember seeing the video live two thousand nineteen all said Oh my God. What are you doing be a father stopped being a celebrity what has changed narrative narrative what has changed a wobbling of the Lakers? They didn't make the playoffs but brought had his first major injury. That's interesting but one thing I learned about the media and certainly media the training one. Oh one is the media loves to build you up but they love it even more to tell you down right now they smell low blood in the water <music> blood in the water but this is why they are so off base now say they because I am not part of this part of Tearing Down Lebron James. I don't think that he's he's done being who he is as Kink. Everyone says Lebron by his own words said I have nothing left to prove he said Yeah but when did he say that after he you WanNa Championship in two thousand sixteen and in the playoffs the two thousand seventeen the first time he said people were running with that what he did the next year first first and only time in his career played all eighty two games and had his highest scoring average in the last decade tremendous uh-huh tremendous postseason they got swept by the dynastic warriors at the time so for all of this to come about a guy who says I have nothing left to prove doesn't mean I don't have nothing left to do so remind yourself so you're talking about or Lebron next year. I think he's GonNa remind us. So is that mean. He's going to win the M._V._p.. Or are they GONNA win N._B._A.. Championship again like what level is she going to prove to us that we we said he was done to sin. Oh that's a question that's first of all. That's absurd or criteria for anybody to say. I have to win M._V._p.. When that's a revolving trophy he's one of four times and then to say he has to win a championship or he didn't do his part? I think the broncos saying look you're talking about me. Watch my game as you watch my game last year twenty seven eight nine like are we really taking shots at that God. There's a lot of fish in the water water to try and get that big fish. Look I mean if you WANNA go by stats than Russell. Westbrook is the best player that we've seen ever in the N._B._A.. Ever triple double three years in a row. No one's done that in the modern history of the N._B._A.. So we can go stats. I mean this is the same people want pick out Lebron injury fair but when he was back they lost to the worst teams in the N._B._A.. Memphis in Phoenix when you pick it they lost Sacramento or teams. That didn't make the playoffs. Those are the ones they lost you. That's why they fell out of the playoffs. I do think to motivate him. I do think they're better better but I think the same flaws that David Griffin pointed out or give me the same laws with the Lakers right you have G._M.. WHO's trying to fit pieces around him? They tried to have control of the head coaching situation where they couldn't get tied Lou. They didn't really want blue but then they had to get title now. You have Frank Vogel. Oh who's never coached N._B._A.. Finals before how long does that relationship last before he sours on it Anthony Davis said in his opening press counters play center. We'll guess what it Anthony Davis every good powerful or the place with Brian James Chris Bosh Kevin Love Plays Center spaces out in the corner so do I think he'll be better. Do I think he'll use his motivation of course course that's what the best to do. I think that ends up in a championship. I don't think it's a flawed roster and I think he's thirty five. He can't do the things that he used to do. At both ends of the I agree with breath much of that I would add this to the thing that concerns me about Lebron's tweet and the promise of ether and this fiery emojis Oh Jeez and you've played with the throne wanted it plays into my narrative that Lebron thinks of himself as royalty and but more more than anything the ether and the appearance of anger anger is not the right emotion for Lebron James we saw after the decision decision in his first year with the Miami hate point and it eighty MUP- and he had to come back the next year and re invest in joy in and and the proper emotion that drives Lebron James again the A._U.. Tape screens. This dude loves basketball and takes a lot lot of joy in it. That's his emotion if he taps into anger. I think it works against him. I don't think he's got Kobe's mentality. Michael Jordan's is mentality. He's got a different mentality and so and then the number one reason why I think it's GonNa blow up in his face is is because what's inside that staple center building sharing with him Kawhi Leonard Paul George Doc Rivers mantras Hero Lou Williams Patrick Beverley Jerry West Lawrence Frank <hes> all that is just going to be too much. He's already a little angry and fills victimized and then he's GonNa be in the same building with what I believe will be the best team in the N._B._A.. <hes> that has a championship coach and I think that's that's going to eat him up and frustrate him because the other thing we've seen when Brian gets frustrated he will tap out he will tap this part of Lebron's aunts history and I think that's what's going to happen. I don't think it's fair to Lebron to say that when he responds in tweet and says ethers coming that at that is anger being shown because I think a lot of times we say how we would feel if we were in that position. I know if you doubt me and I'm still at the top. I'm just remind mode like Oh. All I got to do is do me and remind job because obviously the narrative has gotten away from actual production and contribution so the broad is probably in backside if I didn't get injured last year which is a part of aging it was part of the team construction how he has to play himself and manages minutes. It's but the Braun is sitting there with a ton of confidence. It's not like he has to reach for another wrong to become something that reminds us of his greatness. Just play Lait through play it out and just a couple years ago he was able to play for the first and only time eighty two games. I think Lebron is looking at this situation like look upstairs brought Lincoln Autumn other the guys. That's David Griffin Rob. Pelinka is not going to sit there and cry in anxiety after winning the championship said Oh Lord distresses go get to us. They're going to be elated did in joy because the Lakers brand will be restored so I just think Lebron is planned with different variables in a positive way not like he was. I'm GonNa tell you the variable rebel. He's not playing with that. He was when he was twenty seven twenty eight twenty nine. He's he's a liability defensively. He was ultimate you've gotta choose ultimate Swiss Army Knife additionally look the league is changed the the the idea that you can play ice Oh ball and he'll invite to double team not everything's ball screen and spacey and Paste and space and that's how he plays that's not always ever played so he's caught a little bit inbetween errors in the N._B._A.. A he and he's not the same defensively and look. I don't wish injury on anybody especially when the great players in the history of the sport but when you're thirty five you don't get less is hurt. You get hurt more often right like the many takes longer to come back right anybody like the hamstring growing this year. It's a hamstring next to your gets worse than it gets worse and they're gonNA. They're gonNA need need him. I think it's fascinating you have the arrogance of the Lakers of the king and then you have the clippers were the third ten in their own building. There's no banners up in there at all and you have a guy with championship pedigree probably the best player in the sport and Kawhi Leonard Choosing them over the Lakers like that whole thing is amazing and how they emotionally handle that it's GonNa be fascinating. I I think we're still kind of Miss. The point David Griffin say anything that we didn't already know or think or other people hadn't said and yet. We're acting like it's profound. I guess it's only because now when it comes from a gentleman yes that adds a lot of legitimacy to what others have said. It's more well I think because I I don't know why people were upset particularly journalists that he said it you know as journalists I like for people to be transparent and honest with the interesting things and so so. I don't get why people he better go on T._v.. And clarify I I don't buy that. I think he said it Phil Jackson System things about Kobe. We Brian in a book shortly after working with him that were critical and you know I didn't see it again. Kobe was in a different spot he was coming. It wasn't long after after Colorado and things like that but I didn't see this blind worship of how dare you say there was some problems working with Kobe Kobe human being. There's some problems working winning. Phil Jackson talked about him. David Griffin doing the same thing I I will just go back to again. The bronze personality and I say this as a positive that do new naturally is positive energy and he made misdirected he may what but he is positive energy and if if he tries to go negative energy is not going to work and then I don't think again I I don't mean this is a an insult because there's not he's a positive person. He's not a fighter and I think Kawhi Leonard has come to L._A.. I'm ready to fight. I'm a fighter. I'm personally you want some combat Matt. Let's do it and I don't think that's going to work well for Lebron is I don't think he's ever been challenged. In the way the clippers are about to incur y backed up by Mantras Herro and Lou Williams and Patrick Beverley just the mentality dogs make Italian and a good way. Yes this is Anthony Davidson Lebron there but as you know my favorite sport shrager field is two things you you can't do is get psyched out meaning. Don't lose the race before you even start it and sometimes that can happen laying one Marceau's why lane to you say about all damn so you can't be Lebron looking looking another lane saying over there. Oh God and now Lebron's mental makeup would even let him give him give Kawada M._S. credit second thing you can't do is peak is like just run your own race. I think that the clippers is really going to take too much away from Lebron's motivation or get in his vision. You know why Lebron came here soon as he landed landed has some missteps his home is doing and then they reminded him quickly. This is Kobe town always will be defaced bureau. Everything Lebron was never in the race for L._A.. He never even a fair chance he never gave himself a chance by his own is doing so. I don't think that now that he's going to say I'm a run L._A.. The Clippers are here here. He has basically participated in the whole Lebron versus Michael Jordan he said it's over here. He's participated right and so oh he's concerned about narrative no athlete or you could try to manipulate and control the rich Paul I if we could get in his phone right now to see all the calls he made last night trying to control his narrative and so when that clippers narrative and Kawai and what they have starts taking all that envy and what it will say about Lebron. This guy leads a thirteen to a title. That's something Lebron hasn't I just Hiring solution hiring is challenging but there's one place you can go where hiring is simple fast and smart a place where growing businesses connected qualified candidates that places ZIPRECRUITER DOT com slash speak Ziprecruiter send your job to over one hundred of the Web's leading job boards but they don't stop there as applications come in Ziprecruiter ziprecruiter analyzes each one and spotlights the top candidates so you never miss a great met. ziprecruiter is so effective that four out of five employers who post on Ziprecruiter recruiter get a quality candidate through the site within the first day and right now.

Anthony was still without the job in the N._B._A.. Some nine months after getting cut by the rockets just ten games in the last season well mellow is now out campaigning for work showing up for a ride ranging interview with Stephen a Smith on. I take this morning where he talked about this past season and how it affected him saying quote. I felt like I love the game more than the game. Love me at that particular time now. I love the game too much to be away from it now. I got a new life about me. It took me a while to get out of that situation. Ryan emotionally gentleman I was thoroughly impressed with Carmelo. Anthony left that interview filling like if my Pacers hasters if Mima heat or the Golden State Warriors should make a play for Carmelo Anthony I think he's in the right mindset. He certainly the right mindset. I don't think this interview did him any justice in terms of his efforts to get back in the league. I don't <hes> one. Let's just start where we come. Come from as athletes as all who covered the sport impurities forces Ameritech Rec- impurity is supposed to be we know we've Kinda more from we've come between media journalism coverage access athletes brands. Everything is not just how good you are and so we know that when we get drafted we know that it's not just the talent driven choice. There's also other variables so the way you come in golf so they'll be the way you go out. It's not just going to be talent. It's Carmelo buckets ship Cornel B. in the League right now. Absolutely I feel so based on production based on what he can do depending on roll the problem is game recognizes this game and turns a talent but when you have to remind the game that you still have it. I've never seen a guy get that grip back onto sport in his is opportunity wants. This slipped Dez Bryant comes to mind many guys come to mind when you think about once they start writing the story about you beyond your production initially Carmelo even said is deeper than basketball once we get out of that lane of just Carmelo being a great player or good player or at his age and we start talking about these other variables. I think it's impossible to remind sport and the G._M.'s that you get another chance so this won't help him service for some. I don't think it helps them. Nearly as much as you do Jason First of all I spent time with Carmelo Anthony. He's a great guy. Everybody likes Camello Anthony as a person could do to hang sprite right and he's somebody who has a lot of interesting thoughts to share with world not not just about sports and also he's really into filmmaking as well but he he called out Daryl Morey and he never had an open conversation with James Harden. He basically went to Chris Paul and said why am I getting cut. Did you do this so he put it all on Darrow Maury like their mortgage G._M.. He's got friends and he's running out of teams to pick him up additionally. You're right. It's not a mineral boy. I got no problem with anybody. Calling Darrow Maurya continue okay okay I mean I know he's part of little analytics. Click no listen listen I I don't. I don't think he's perfect. I'm just saying it's kind of like Marcel segments about more than basketball you know Oh talk and he's like Oh. He also called out Oklahoma City and didn't like his role. They're like okay. So where do you like your role was the help me out there because I watched the the whole deal. He did not call anybody out in a vicious way no he he took the high road and he put out his side of the story but he harmed no one no but he he did question a barrel more he he made Daryl Morey seem very cold blooded in walking in and saying as general manager. That's a good look. We'll continue I agree but I don't know how that translates into the general manager world additionally like look posting videos on one on cone and and shooting jump shots like look dude. There's a driver. He's desperate that you love. Somebody said he didn't say I'll play anywhere. I'll take any role I will. I will buy in he didn't he can talk all he wants about about. I finally accepted coming off. The bench was really hard for me. Hey Dude can you can you can you go from being mellow. Twenty shots a game thirty point tonight to a man we might need you five minutes tonight and we need you to wave that towel and we've just smacked butts when they come over. We need you to be the trend ended the N._B._A.. Culture and he doesn't bring a one brings something to follow was a guy you could sit and have that conversation with and he would be open to it. It's like Burger 'cause I think he thinks his reputation precedes him and I think he acknowledged US interview that he wasn't in the right a place mentally he needed his ego chop down and it has been and I I'm just telling you I I heard a human being like Oh yeah. This is someone I can reason with. Will he be perfect. Absolutely not no one is but he's in a much better mental space than he was previously and I think where he was mentally was the only justification for keeping him out of the Li. The Guy can get a second unit buckets and give you five ever six. Goodman is why your starters rest now and there's so much desperation in this league right now because of the equality that you can't tell me G._M.. G._M. would be an idiot not to say I wonder if I can get fifteen minutes out of Carmelo and helped me that one percent advantage to get me pass somebody. The point is there's two different elements to it. I not all the teams in the League are trying to win. We agree right no yeah. Those are the ones okay so you got to cut off like ten of those teams. Maybe twelve those teams. They ain't trying to win. They play young player. They play players right now now. What are we down to teams okay? There's there's thirty N._B._A.. Teams and now we're down to fifteen sixteen and he's already played for four or five. They're all out then you have his clothes one of his closest friends Lebron James who had a chance chance to bring them into Cleveland. No thanks had had a chance all season off scenery and now he was in the wrong mindset. No He's not Lebron doesn't in the wall. My Buddy three loves to HANG OUT WITH CARMELO Anthony. No one wants to play with Carmelo Anthony I give but you can't tell me do can't get buckets and I'm just I watch this. I was very impressed and and I think that's the contradiction. He and I say I always defend Carmelo Anthony. We talked talk about yesterday. We went into the commercial break still argued about Carmelo Anthony Ana meritocracy which sports maybe used to be yesteryear deserves to be an M._B._a.. Eh but what story line once narrative West reputation once these G._M.'s and their their their relationships start to be a part of that equation it <music> gets blurry and coaches always remind us in the locker room. This is not a birthright y'all is privileged and as soon as you lose sight of that privilege guess what is going be hailed to pay to get back to this place and there's a flow. There's a current as we all know as a player that you have to stay in it. You gotta stay with with a professional athlete. It's not the best athlete was best. Actually they will go to my neighborhood and grab of five other guys who were better stronger faster but they grabbed the guys who stayed the lyman with their float at current once you get out of it good luck trying to swim against it good luck trying to get back into it and that's what I'm saying I have not seen examples of a God who goes out with a testimonial and gets his career Beck and it's unfortunate what is trying to get his career back. Though which was you're saying he's trying to get back into league. He wants back in the early in the play basketball and I believe it's a I do this to me. Sounded like someone who's really benefited benefited from some therapy and some self reflection and has a level of self awareness and that I think is rare for people that have made two hundred under fifty million just from basketball the guys probably made another hundred million elsewhere to have that kind of self awareness and to be able to go on and sit down with Steven Naismith who who also Stephen Awesome job with the interview but to sit down with him and carry their for our and ca stephen was programmed him and hitting with some tough questions he handled it all. It's everything I would wanna hear from Carmelo at this point and I'm just telling you things are so close in the N._B._A.. There will be a G._M.. There will be coastal. Carmelo might be ready to take these twelve minutes. I got to offer who he played for the thunder. They wanted Navas Golden State Warriors. They wanted me. He's in a different place doug. He's not the same guy everybody's in a different place when they don't have a job and they get back to being the same as what what has to happen. You can't talk your way back into this. Look look. I think his way out of it in my who know we don't know what those actions actions were. That went with that talk. We know the story of it but we don't know the Actions Dated Day interactions. Here's the thing Phil Jackson said it. I think a lot of GM's and coaches subscribed to it. There's nothing being more difficult than coaching a superstar at his aging yeah now. This is a superstar that is as and I don't know if it's impossible but coach is GonNa look what's in the draft. What what's on the chopping block? WHO's going to be out there without the ego without the reputation? Give me have me ask you let me ask this. That's what go out where the rockets damaged by bringing him in they weren't they weren't because again and you gotta understand not to pay that much. You can get rid of him easy and I'm just to anybody watching this interview. I'm sorry you gotta be impressed with this. Dude and you have definitely not bringing me. We can dusting if it doesn't work. It didn't didn't hurt the rockets. They were still right there in the western conference finals so there's no downside boy did hurt diedhiou now. They didn't get a good start because James Harden wasn't healthy right and fairness but like look to be. I don't think people under this is like the conversation of Kapernick is a backup quarterback in the total different middle space incapital well. I I would agree based upon the fact we haven't heard from Colin cat. We haven't seen him. We haven't heard from him but it's the idea of to be a backup quarterback like the reason Matt Shaab. I don't even know to last night. He was in Cylinder League because that job is specifically to get the starter ready to totally change and to be a bench player in the N._B._A.. You don't just have to come in and get buckets like look. He's is going to have to play the four he never wanted to play the four. He's going to have to switch on ball screens and guard. Somebody can't guard anybody. He's a mid rate like his game is also something from the early two thousands it doesn't fit with today and so while if it's a pickup game can he is he a better player than most N._B._A.. Players Yeah but Bruce Bowen we play pickle ball with him at cal State Fortin and he wasn't one of the best players in the court but an N._B._A.. Game he did exactly what he was. <hes> do what you gotta do. You're forced to yeah just this week. I spent four thousand thousand dollars and put a hat a stairmaster that apartment. What am I in this morning? I was on it for twenty minutes. I didn't WanNa do the whole we were down the codex with locking Wiley. We're joined now by Fox Sports N._F._l.. Analyst analysts Greg Jennings former pro bowl linebacker Lavar ARRINGTON. Let's move to Pittsburgh where a lot is being made of the new look steelers who seem pretty happy to have a fresh start after the shipping. Some of their bigger personalities like Antonio Brown out of Town Big Ben in particular seems a static about being free of the distractions saying quote. I feel like like I love football again. I don't know if I can put my finger on a particular reason. It just feels that way. That's how he's the town. I like this comment. I have no issue with it. He doesn't have to Babysit Antonio Brown and they you don't have to deal with the lady. I'm bill contract drama so big. Ben Loves Football Getting these happy Oh yeah he's abby and it's funny. Longtime beat writer Jerry Dulack her been sadist and he's like been I was here last year. You looked happy last year like you love football. There and he's like no no this is different. This is more and he's like why radio silence now. This is my thing. If you're GONNA pull out a gun. Just shoot man come on big band. We've been there. We all all part of this fraternity. We don't godless posters to say names and numbers he's like I don't give a damn. y'All costs about outlaws. I get that name and number who did it who said it and being pulled us out and didn't even want to shoot this is A.. B. Is so easy to see come in like Ben the Lake House. All of a sudden was opened again in the schedule opened up and be happy A._B._C.. Look Satan just why I can't put my finger on it. I got my finger on it this far. It's an Oakland right now so miss me with the moment go look at the saying goes same thing make you smile make you cry rice. Ain't they make you make you make you cry. This is one of those situations he has taken a shot at both of them may bell and Brown <hes> reality here is is that when you start to put those type of small quotes coats out there my wife Said and then throw Ju- Shuster in there and so now it's a direct comparison by position the reality of it is is what's their record right now. Everybody's a champion undefeated. I got to say everybody's undefeated right now. So you can sit there and laugh and smile and Kiki about it run to the fifteen fifteen and play pitching cats do but what happens now is the minute they start planning them games. If they're not getting results they're looking for. Don't don't don't think that these types of coats aren't going to resurface and become a topic of conversation. I'm where you're headed is where I'm going. I don't like it number one because I've been on this side of it and I understand that whole quarterback that talk where you leave everybody's mind to just wonder and fill in the blanks. I don't like that. We know exactly what you're doing and you're taking shots but the reason why I don't like it is because number one been Ben. Rothlisberger has never been one to own it. He's never been one to just own it. This is going to make him This woman there's the old man Israel so never felt like my toes curl up Sasha we ever had never been having his toes curl. I don't know why toes curl exactly. He's telling you aren't there phases. Don't you through depression like maybe he's sitting there and really in reality. Maybe he's upset that Antonio isn't there. I mean sometimes when football football again and he's like sometimes we a headache but I want to let you know I'm doing well you break. Are you talking about a divorce. You get that divorce what you going on your social media post and sell fees and other. You want that other person to see that you don't well yeah not really be doing well. So here's the real you might not be doing well in an ESA point. That's that's why I want to know. I wanted to collect. All these starts because you guys are hitting it but we are dancing Mike Tomlin communist referee in this one it right now. He can't do anything because he's like. That's that's below the belt but you know what I'm GonNa see what he does and we'll see what we do now. We know in camp man even though it's can't we still undefeated champions. This is our year right and adversity hits. We'll see what happens. Mike Tomlin went out this week and talked about ownership ship and they asked him about big big as a leader and Mike told us that this was coming might say Beng needs to be himself. That's all I ever asked of them. Just just leave your own voice and you talked about it. Ownership Ben and Mike is like we'll see how this plays because you might not be when we just got rid of their and you need need to own that so right now. You can't even own why you love the game more this year we already off to a bad start and I know Mike Tomlin somewhere sitting there like I play they might put him on his sitting there just as happy as being 'cause he ain't sitting around worried about no is really going to be here for practice he is is he going to be film and stuff in the locker room is are we going to be dealing with all his off the field issue we're going. We're going to win games last year. They didn't make the playoffs but I I was on that side of where when I left Green Bay and I chose to go to Minnesota and I was entering into an atmosphere in a quarterback a wide receiver relationship with Christian ponder in previously I had Brett farve veneer and Raja now everything that I was saying was man. Christian looks great all he has all the tools all the skills and everything that I need in the quarterback but in the Backhoe Mama. I don't think I'm looking like man. I hope he devoted this because you know he's not these guys right but I gotta put on because I want. These guys feel like or see that I made the right decision yeah. I'm excited just being honest. You want people to know look. We're good. I'm good. We're regardless of how truly oh you and good news on the field perspective. I knew I was going to struggle yeah. I knew I was going to talk. Let your happiness was coming up when Wylie LAVAR ARRINGTON back time to get anti SOCI- hit Dinello get with the raiders wherever since Jon Gruden was hired as head coach rumors had been swirling Derek Carr isn't his guy will car. Maybe trying to win over because it was confirmed. They bought a house in Vegas right next to Chucky. Hopefully car will be sticking around as Q._B.. That's going to be one weird awkward housewarming Party Guy Eh guys things are good idea terrible terrible. I mean because Jon Gruden and quarterbacks man he he wants them all. He's going to regret this decision. It's a a little teacher's pet in there. You know here's my apple. I'm living right next door to you but if he's a neighbor like a neighbor I'll mess with my neighbors. Don't come on my house. I don't even know them. Qaddafi culturally speaking this is different culture that you mentioned apple. You know what's going to happen here. Always GonNa have line trees and stuff like that growing and coaches your. He's WanNa make sure his guard your yard and Clint. Everything's GonNa be manicured perfectly. It's it's a great move by Mister Car boss down when let's see nobody that has control over my future right next door to me unless I'm the one in control the when I leave home all right sticking with the N._F._l.. Rams all time leading rusher. Stephen Jackson has officially retired WANNA go out the right way earlier earlier this week. He decided to sign a one day contract with the rams and got one last case legal retire with the team. You started with well. The daily Jackson looked a little too fast during this final carry because outdoors N._F._l.. N._F._l.. Cinema random drug tests Jackson tweeted out during N._F._l.. Can you tell us a Lombardo that I signed a one day contract. I will not be reporting from my random drug test screenings. Thanks in advance Jackson Place. It's twenty fifteen so you think the league is trolling here. No I think legitimately speaks to the randomness of the drug testing testing policy that ran so random. They made sure that they did it on the one I believe is random. I've always I like eight eight years. Only got tested wants to do one year like eleven and I was bad that year so I was like what I'm doing I think is random but I think it's also funny you yeah no. I think it's interesting 'cause we are looking at the way he ran that football to me. It's crazy how unathletic we can start to look some of us when we don't play anymore. It does look the trying to run that football. That's how they don't WanNa make a mockery of the game so they said we're going to stop people from jumping out what they're trying to run the football dorm. Practicing trading is bad for business. Let's say drug testing wasn't shot. This was a shot. It was nothing random about it. I don't mind it. Though I mean I mean it is what it is doing question of the day it's taken away all right so woodlock took a lot of backlash on social media for your comments on the Bride Ah specifically from the black community so I wanna ask you guys as Black T._v.. Personalities have responsibility to hold your tongues speaking on the Black Star. I want to clarify clarify one thing. I don't think I've seen a lot of black clash from the black community. I think I took a lot of black clash from twitter's alleged black community so I think that's completely different and to be no. I'm a journalist and so I'm just going to speak the truth about whoever it is when I was in Kansas City and cover call Peterson Marty Schottenheimer adding Heimer Roy Williams whoever I took a lot of heat from white people why he's on Marty. Why are you so hard on call penalty? You must be racist now. I'm a critic. I'm a journalist list. That's what I do yeah. I do favors if I don't keep one hundred no matter who you are because one. I'm doing it with a spirit that I'm trying to either the educate help or just give you my assessment and if I'm incorrect hey I'm right here. I don't talk about the actor I talk about the Act I talk about what you give me and that's it and I don't try to go any deeper into your world but I do feel as a black journalist black man black football player that at times I must inform formed those who are not privy to know some of the details of my culture my experience my background so whatever that may lend itself to at times when when I see there is a divide and maybe the bridges ratio understanding then I will respectfully tell them from our perspective for me <hes> you know I I think that sometimes I think more or process a little different when I try to answer a question that I know I'm going to be controversial because it's someone appear or they have status and they are African American. I tread lightly because I understand being in in that position. So I come from a level of experience. How would I feel if I watch one of my peers or counterpart or colleague or whatever journalists analyst that looks like me talking about me and they understand the struggle because it is a struggle it is a climate it is it is something to be said okay when you however however you get there when you make it to that pinnacle and I think we have to lift each other up because we we see others tearing goes down already so that's just my perspective but however I'm going to give truth? I'm going to be fair but I am going to slightly look at it from from a different Lens because I have experienced in that space I leave. It allows them white people to do the same but go I don't I don't I don't mind that I don't tip toe around any type of subject subject matters or topics of conversation because I was raised to be true to myself and true to those who truly love and care for for for me and that I love and care for so I'm not going to compromise what my opinions and what my thoughts and my ideologies are going to be because they're unique and independent to me right so you don't have to get mad at me as a community for my own personal opinion whether you think I represented US correctly whether you re representatives incorrectly in your opinion. That's your opinion so if I'm stayed in an opinion I'm giving you my personal opinion based off of what it has meant to me to be who I am and how I grew up in the things I've gone through in life outlived live and what I've experienced. I've been on the side of gang violence where I've lost family to gang violence. I've been on the side where I've lost family to police brutality. I've been on the side of all kinds of different different things where you could say if you have an obligation to this. It's based upon this. I don't I don't use anything that I do and what I bring to the table and when I'm on camera and in front of the people who are watching us and sugar coated or water it down because I feel like you're doing yourself a disservice you on how you were raised and where you came from and you're also doing those who are watching you a disservice because at the end of the day they're going to know they're gonNA know you as a cure. I'm not the real people die from what they don't know and so when you deny people the Truth and an honest opinion you're keeping them ignorant and you're moving them closer closer to making the wrong decisions and then the other thing. I'll say I mean this as someone who was a Mediocre College Athlete that studied journalism and have a career in journalism. We're in this era where athletes are on television a lot and it's a good thing we want to hear their perspective but we got to remember is it's not they're not here to be true. Journalists a lot of here represent the athlete's perspective and I get it there are others that from my wilpon Stephen a Smith Jason Whitlock to Tony Kornheiser germs and we're coming into everything from journalist with locking Wiley Doug Gottlieb is back with us. Let's return to the Brawn James yesterday his former general manager David Griffin told SL miserable trying to build a team around the Ron and Cleveland. The bron appeared to be responding tweeting quote enough is enough. The throne has been plagued with too much and I ain't for horseplay ether coming soon. Well Griffin responded this afternoon saying when I was speaking about being uncomfortable bill and quote being miserable. It was my inability to deal with that media scrutiny. It wasn't the man himself. It was everything that came with the team live by Lebron James had nothing to do with being miserable with Lebron we had and having faith positive relationship. I was so disappointed appointed that the story really came about me and sensationalize version of quotes that were taken totally out of context the question here is do you think differently about Griffin's criticism after his clarification today and I don't I think he was honest. I I think he was honest in a sports illustrated article about some of the struggles I think he's being relatively honest now trying to walk it back but you you know the two paces out of the bottle. I don't think any different as well and it's is because impart reading the follow up interview from day McMenamin Charlotte to DMC A._M._c. who wrote that Lebron and Griffin had a great relationship they felt Lebron's tweeting out his wife's this company and it really just thinking wow this came as a shock so now we could talk about context was taken out of context with you talking to different spirit than what we read that's it I don't believe David Griffin fully about he him talking about just the noise because this disassociation association between who brings the noise and the noise that comes with him. Let's be real about this. We can't just say Oh man you always bringing all this attention with you and not sometimes sometimes put some of that blame on you and you try to keep that going so I don't like that. I don't like that. He's trying to clarify. I didn't mean anything about Lebron when in reality the if all this comes with Lebron has to be a part of that equation you couldn't have said it any better and then you combine it with what you said yesterday the day before one of the I think version three three of the brunt a you take which is he does suck up all the air out of the room. That's what he does. He doesn't even hide the fact and you're right that your your team is what your who. Your best player is on the court off the court and this is what I've said to you guys what people in the N._B._A. Have told me. Kyri didn't have any problem with playing with the Bron-. It's all the other stuff it was Bronco. The coaches is the Bron- help control his agent represents tryst in represents J._R. and they got a a little bit too much money and then you gotta deal with the owner. Dan Gilbert somehow avoided criticism. He's a big part of the problem are I'm sure he didn't like paying the luxury. Tax Lebron never warmed up to him. I'm guessing the Brown would love to own not just an N._B._A.. Team but that N._B._A.. Team if he had his druthers it's in his hometown so I I actually believed him the first time am I believe most of what he's trying to walk back and explain the second time but I don't think it changes how I feel about the how I how I perceive dealing with Lebron James which is it's not easy because of everything that comes with it. I don't from what I under. I don't see this as much of a walk back. I I see it as a clarification clarification and he's trying to take some of the tone down and make it seem less like an attack the thing where I think he's on rock solid ground because because I think we've all experienced it. If you've been reading written about by the media he's like man. This is supposed to be a story about me and the Pelicans <hes> and what we were trying to build here with the Pelicans and he feels like he was misled because it's about Lebron James or the aftermath is about Lebron James Out Defend in sports illustrated here day. You've got to be smarter than you say anything about Lebron Jane shortly after he just missed the playoffs and there's all this this attention and noise around him during the free agency period you damn well know if there's any quotes about Lebron in a story. It's going to overshadow because the Pelicans are interesting but if you really want to do a story on the Pelicans this focus on the Pelicans sins I on out there David Griffin nail that the the more we talk the more I'm really going to give moves in terms of my support slightly foot David Griffin because it comes house with the territory of Lebron James and now you're trying to act like that. All you were mad about was the media the media and the story now the bronze aims aims because Lebron James Is Is the same thing Phil Jackson was kind of Luton too when he said posse there were a lot of people who have resentment when they went to law school school became agents work their way up to whatever it may be in the organization and then Lebron comes through and say oh these mommy's and they're working on their credentials facebook while they're working on it there in your your office with their feet up so I'm going to do this and solidifying not only their existence but getting credential Pinchot so now people like David who had that long arduous climb or like what the hell happened and they don't want to say that because it has racial undertones only it has all these implications as beyond just merit but in reality it comes with the territory so he's GonNa blame the media but in reality honey hill is your homeys bigger and more powerful than me when I have this title that you I mean you nailed it and that's that's what they tried this year with the Lakers. There was a coup d'etat right their coach. They wanted their players and they got some of it. They didn't get all the Guy Jason Kidd in there but they couldn't get tyler. Who is the head coach they wanna control control almost almost infest the place and to a greater extent it worked in Cleveland considering what they had been before and what they have been since but I think that's what led to his lack of enjoy ability? I will point out that what was an look. I think Magic Magic Johnson period clownish many things he said and done since since he left the Lakers but the day he left he said he wanted to get back to having fun right and what has David Griffin said this is not fun and and and so no matter how much he has taco Tuesday on twitter and no matter how much he sees me having a great time watching his son improve as a basketball player. I think Mike my takeaway is like it's just not that much fun even when you win and I understand that sometimes building is better than actually living in the new house right that that the process is and that's kind of what he talked about and I think that's what he wanted to the article to be about but the picture he painted is one that we've seen a little bit of Miami a lot of in Cleveland and so far or in Los Angeles which is because of his people that he has to bring with him and that's his belief that when the they succeed he succeeds and he's a part of their personal growth. I think it's just not that much your point about this goes on and all industries people getting what others perceive as undeserved opportunity yes it in my industry newspaper writing that I came up and have amazing over the top a passion for I've seen my industry like everybody gets to be a columnist and when I started as a columnist in nineteen ninety four it was one of the hardest positions to earn you had to jump over all kinds of hoop and show so much talent and kiss so much really and do all the right things and then they let you you say European and nobody else got to say their opinion and now because of the Internet and things everybody just in blogs everybody gets to spout there appear in the publicist says Oh that guy is on the same level as Jason Whitlock and Stephen a Smith and Michael Wilbon and Tony and we're I was sitting there like are you kidding me. Are you kidding me and so David Griffin here I think is is just speaking honestly about Lebron and I think the Lebron and his camp should understand stick to their goods if they believe believe in their way and their way's the right way rather than make David Griffin and other people apologize for tell them the truth about what it's like to work. You know what we brought a championship for Cleveland Byles do it right. I Look David though we're not forcing you to apologize. You WanNa clarify because you you really not saying what you really feel so it's going to be a lot of levels of clarification until you just look in the mirror and tell us what that conversation sounds like. Here's the thing Phil Jackson said Posse Pat Riley. Shut it down right. David Griffin said no fun. Magic's dipped in the middle of the night. There's something that comes Lebron. We all well no it won't you tell us what your real issue with with it and I know he is not telling you he wanted credit and he wanted control and this is the thing that divided Jerry Jones and Jimmy Johnson only gets. I don't think it's control. You know why he said it. He said in article he he said look. I'm in a world where Lebron gets all the credit. Yes who so true this you want from that. I work your whole life case from Uh. He's also from Cleveland Right. This is Jordan to him right. I'm David Griffin so you work your whole life to get to be the general manager of the Cleveland Cavaliers and you. Have you like to pick my coach. We picked his coach. The broncos like no no no. I don't like David Blatt. I okay then I get to at least go. She ate the salaries of no no. No no no. We're going to have my kind of guys and you're GonNa Pay Them X. or they're not gonNA show up and that's just the way it's going to be and so. I don't think that's control. I think he's just WanNa do his job. No no no no you mis misread me credit and control in this attention based society now more than ever walked credit like make sure I get my likes. I give my compliments. I get the upper mobility from this move to control doesn't come from from those under you. It comes from knows on top you. This is what Kendrick Perkins was talking about. Hey Dan Gilbert if you really think general managers in control empower him. You can't look at the players or just say we don't empower him. It's just the title on the door to you. Flextech power he had no control and he got no credit then it became no fun say say that and then we will understand where you're coming from but if you say the media just misrepresent I agree with you on the meeting with you but I do think he's inferring during that and Marceau's I what he said there's no credit to be had in Cleveland because Lebron made all the decisions and all the values that David David Griffin wanted ten steel in the organization where blunted again Doug made a hell of a point today on the heard about they didn't even practice you show Oh me a basketball purist or coach or executive. They want their teams to practice the Bronx. Now we're not practicing. That's not what we do here and so there was no they didn't enjoy the process David Griffin and they just turned into one person. Just now who else didn't enjoy tosses yes yes but again but this this is obviously has his own building of his image to do right right but when Kyrie got to Boston he was blown away when he was by the professionalism of it but professional was everybody showed up on time and by practice together they watch film together and that wasn't how it was in Cleveland and if Lebron wanted it to be that way it would have been that way because he's Lebron James and that's part of the article which he doesn't a- address in his walk back is he talked about the culture of Cleveland and that it was unsustainable culture and your culture's reflection every coach but also the the bigs reflection is of your best player and I thought that was an indictment of Lebron and this year what happened with the Lakers when they fell apart was an indictment of Lebron and Lebron believes and it worked for him though is like hey there was some other culture things that I established that I think were more important than practice and some of these other things because there are a a Lotta Dante Jones come on the show one of the greatest teammates and he'd have bowling night at his house and we do this and that and they did all kinds of team building things that were all oh fun and they all went out and kicked it and had a good time together as a team Halloween parties the whole nine those are the things that are important libra. He's and then on the court he's GonNa do Lebron's stuff and you'll win but coaches executives and others like that's what happened when you leave. We're going to have a Halloween party at going to build and say forget about the Halloween Party with locking Wiley Greg Lavar Errington are bat. Let's move to Baltimore. Were John. Harbaugh spent this week talking about how the Mark Jackson is going to revolutionize the N._F._l.. With his running game well turns out. It's quarterback has some other ideas. Tell Rich Eisen quote. I put on weight but I don't think I'll be running as much as I did. Last year. There were a lot of run pass this option and a lot of sudden changes in last year's game. This will be totally different. I think both these guys can be right hardball and Lamar Jackson but is Lamar Jackson contradicting harbaugh a bit of a Red Flag. No it's not a red flag at all talk about the same book but different chapters and I think Lamar is told you what he's he's talking about last year a lot opportunities at the line of Scrimmage R._P._O.'s last year I feel so comfortable and confident that's what I was calling the aw run this this year he goes see that same look and maybe he's going to pass this ball because I feel more comfortable and he's been working on his arm and his accuracy so they on the same page. I'M GONNA have to disagree the reason being is I was in D._C.. During the R._G.. Three Shanahan we'll call it fiasco or or whatever you WANNA call listen. Those same reports started to come out. I'm a pocket pass and quarterback. I'm a drop back. Quarterback Dag get involved everything right. You're having all these conversations. Shanahan is saying this R._G.. Three is saying this. I want to be a drop back quarterback. It's always been age old deal when you have an athletic quarterback that you're going to have the conversation of. I've been running the ball are they an athlete. There's all these different conversational points because they don't look like traditional quarterbacks. It is on a different page and it could that'd be problematic what they need to do is sit down and the privacy of whoever matters within that circle and they need to make sure they flush out what they're saying to the media and why they're saying it's so everybody understands the how and the what so that the ultimate end result is what it needs to be and by chance or circumstance R._G.. Three is on at that roster so he needs to have some some feedback in all of this as well as just completely change my answer. I mean that that is a strong argument. I I didn't think about it like that because initially I'm like no. They're not. They're not at odds are not on different pages. Joe Flacco is going because I saw you <hes> and I want you but after what you just said now I remind myself of when when he was talking about he being Lamar Jackson accident when he first was drafted. I'm not trying to play no receiver. I'm not going on the field at no wildcat and all these specialized positions. I want to throw the ball. I'm a quarterback us in when you try to pigeonhole someone in a corner and label them as one thing the number one thing they wanNA prove is that they're not just this that and so you got good. Here's here's why think they could both be right. Lamar Jackson average like sixteen carries a game last year remember. He played an abbreviated deal. All hardball has said is I'd bet the over on one hundred and forty nine carries one one hundred thirty nine whatever Cam Newton had and and so that's really only ten carries per game that's less than what he was ever to last year but would still be more than what cam had no. I bodies and it's too much and I agree with your take. That Lamar Jackson wants to prove that he's a pass quarterback. He knows that's where the money is. That's where the longevity is yeah and people are saying he can't do it. Tell somebody tell a young person exactly do they go. Don't try to prove your losses. As defensive minded person defenses have changed so I know them. Comparing capper Nick in in the offense coordinator in the head coach and the names are the same aim except the head coaches are brothers and this other that time has passed. Let me tell you something if cavern it was gonna be the guy to play and be in this league and be successful successful again they would've brought him back. They would have brought him back. No matter what the odds were they would have brought him back that time has gone. You gotta be able to throw the ball at this point visit caught up uncle. Jimmy's here of Uncle Don James is here your thoughts on the cell. Definitely let's get to get to this big dummy today this a somebody said that in order to get through journalism they had to jump through all Kinda who out on them like that what would agrees with what was your turn to get on other sides any video footage it is. Here's a highlight loud discussing earlier by the if you've got a stairmaster though abroad is quite pleased with himself. He's angry and motivated now. He'll be bored by J ory worse by March will be crystal clear clear that the Lakers can't compete with lenders clippers. The media loves to build you up but they love it even more to tell you down right now. They smell low blood in the warp all right.

A Little Better Than I Am
"Hey two bidders thanks for stopping by if this is your first time. I really appreciate your taking time to check out audio tidbits. I think it's pretty interesting. And based on the feedback. I get most of the listeners. Also think it's pretty interesting not always but usually at any rate. What i wanted to talk about today is leadership and a kind of a basic question. How do we up our leadership game. How do we get better at it over time. I was listening to a podcast by yvo. Tara and the podcast is called podcast pontificate and is mostly about podcasting. But in the course of listening to that though was making what i thought was pretty interesting point it was suggesting that there is an army of gurus and experts out there on podcasting some of them more expert than others of course and it's easy enough to think that what we really ought to do is to look up with an expert a couple with a consultant and that will help us become better. Podcast her well. The same principle applies to leadership we might want to hook up with a guru oke up with leadership expert and like podcasting and perhaps even more so there are certainly many many many purported experts on leadership out there willing to fort nine thousand nine hundred ninety five or twenty nine ninety five or ninety nine ninety five or some even more outrageous price. Give us a little advice and guidance. About the egos point was this. It isn't necessarily the best approach to try to learn from. An expert tried to learn from the dusting class. If you will for example if you want to learn how to play golf you might be well advised to look up with a friend who is a somewhat better a little better golfer than you are and kind of watch maybe get some tips and take your cue from the way year. She golfs. that's probably the easiest way for you to get a little better. Alternatively you could maybe get a lesson from jack nicholas. But i think what you might find in the long run. Is that if you hang out with your friend over time you'll gradually get better. If you hang out with jack nicholas for one lesson get that guru advice your game might seem to improve for a day or two but if you check back at a month or so your game is probably not any better than it was before you had your consultation with the guru. The same might be true. If you wanted to learn how to play basketball getting a lesson from bron james might not help you nearly as much as spending time around a group of people who play basketball a little better than you do. You can watch this chat with them. Maybe get some tips but probably over time. You'll get better just by plane with people who are better than you are. I think the general point is we can go to the experts or we could come up with an alternative strategy for getting better by hanging out with people who are a little better than we are. I've put this in written form in a post on jerry. Crow dot net on the home of audio tidbits. And if you prefer reading it that would be a good place to check it out for purposes here. Today i've asked nathan to read that post to us so it takes about six minutes and i think the point that i was trying to bake is made perhaps a little more clearly in the post. So hey nathan take it away. Learn from the experts. This is the standard advice for getting better at most anything. Identify the best in class. The b. i for whatever you were doing or want to do and then follow his her lead. But how do you do that. Given the neither you nor is likely to have personal access to the b. I see for anything. We designed to pursue. Hope to get better at that. One is pretty easy. We realism her book since the b. i see and nearly any area most always had written a book and usually more than one will likely have little trouble finding an article blog podcast youtube video or an interview featuring the bic whatever the media the keys to his or her success are close at hand with only a little digging on our part but maybe not if checking in with the bic and following his or her lead works for or even seems like it might work for you go for it. My experience assures me that it can't hurt anything that experience also assures me that reading the books in listening to the interviews are unlikely to ramp up your game nearly as much as the hype that accompanies the media promises. An anecdote may or may not be helpful. You decide about fifteen years or so ago. I decided that ramping up. My leadership game would be a good idea at that time. My leadership was adequate not best in class. I personally knew at least a couple of people who were more skilled leaders from my perspective. A quick review of the literature told me they just who is the leadership. The icees definitely up for debate. But those who think they are in the running or not in short supply. That was true then. It is no less true now since i doubt that there is not just one leader who deserves the title. I group those nearby see status as leadership cruise with this in mind. I committed to reading one hundred girl written books on leadership that i thought was nearly certain way of ramping up. My leadership game perhaps even to grow status. How silly of me thinking. I could breathe my way to grew. It was certainly an interesting experience and did ramp my game. it was just. It didn't help leadership performance all that much. I didn't become noticeably. Better leader what. I did become was a significantly better leadership talker. I could talk leadership. Talk with the best of them. Had i been motivated. I have written my own leadership book and then joined the book article podcast youtube interview circuit. I was well qualified to represent myself as leadership grew. I was not necessarily a better leader. But i could definitely play gula game. My only real limitation was not. I wasn't a successful. Ceo of mega organization a winning coach a famous personality of victorious. General are eminent scholar from a prestigious university. Those tags automatically certify. One is highly skilled leader. Although to quote my grandpa it ain't necessarily so the a little better principle. If tapping into the wisdom of the leadership gurus did not result in my leadership game noticeably ramping. Up what accounts for my leadership skills improving over time as with most of us do most anything over time. I became a more effective leader. The more time and effort invested in leading sure. This is largely a self assessment. But even so it's rather apparent at. I was better leader. Sixty five than. I was at twenty five. Let me simply hope that this fits obvious way with your experience in the point of this post resonates for you. My leadership skills have improved through trial and error. And i have assuredly made my fair share of leadership errors. The improvement came not as much through learning from the errors through learning to avoid the errors in the first place. When some action of mine didn't have the outcome i wanted. I spent less time trying to figure out. Why haven't worked in most time and energy thinking about what would work the next time. Here is the secret sauce for me. Starting i was just getting into management. I became friendly with an older and more experienced manager. Just down the hall from me. Joe wasn't a girl or at least he didn't think of himself as grew even so. I knew that he was a better manager than i was. Not a lot better but definitely a little better. The same was true for his leadership. Skills i now know that he was a lot better at management and leadership and i was at the time but i was twenty five and thought i was better at both than i actually was joe and i spend time talking about our work more to the point. I spent time telling joe about the things i was dealing with. An e mostly listened now then he would make a comment for observation about what i had. Dinner was doing the key takeaways that he never asked me why i did this or the dumb thing. His question was always. How will you handle it. The next time but kind of thing up as i think back joe is only one of several people who i got to know over the years who were a little better leading than i was just a little better. Just a little wiser. It took a while. But i eventually realized that there are always people who i know are can get to know who are a little better a little wiser than i am. No matter how much my inside. Since skills improve i get better and wiser a little at a time and getting to know people who are a little ahead of me is my best way to keep progressing. Consider this if i were a leadership grew i would just tell you the steps and key takeaways. I have determined. Are the keys to leadership success. You will then be expected to take those keys and opened the door to your certain success as a leader as a person of wisdom. But since i'm not a leadership guru or any other brand of grew the best i can do is to offer it possibly useful suggestion check around to identify someone who is a little better a little wiser than you are today in your area of interest then invest some time and effort in cultivating a relationship with him or her. That will give you the occasional opportunity to talk about what you're doing how you're doing things other aspects of your shared interest. Although i can't guarantee that she will get better and wiser if you listen carefully. Remember what is said and think about your conversations now and then. I think it's pretty certain that she will indeed get better and wiser. Even if you don't the time will still have been worth the effort. You will at least have someone interesting to hang out with now and then now you know so there you go there you go find someone who is a little better a little wiser than you are right now and cultivator relationship with emma. Hang around talk about most anything but bring the topic around to your work your activities to your decisions to your leadership from time to time and then listen the other person your friends your call the person who is a little better than you. We'll probably make some comments some observations. Maybe even some suggestions but then the key is to think about it later on actually tried to work at through in your own mind from your own perspective. How those comments or suggestions or tips might improve. Your game might help you up. You're leadership is snot very complicated. It's actually pretty easy. But i suspect that for all of us if we will simply follow the process of okay up with people who are a little better. A little wiser will result in are becoming a little better. A little wiser overtime. That's it for this time. So take care be well do well and please be safe. Music by kevin mccloud.

Where is he you know, that guy ran slinging hot dogs for like fifty years the Coliseum? Verona's officials statement he was just parting with the common people showing that we still have that sense.

I almost tweet identity because I watched the second period. And I thought Pittsburgh was dominating you guys in the second transfer gonna win the game. But that's a big win. Huge. I don't know how they didn't lose the game. They hit the hosts off like you hit that post bowl the game with a minute left hit the post of five seconds left. Then Crosby comes out and over time. He was on a mission to score goal. I'd never seen a guy thought that was the over more chances in ever minute. Like extremes over somehow wins just keep win games. Tomorrow night, keep your composure. Oh, no. I talked about the calcium all talk about the costume was a jungle last night. I never. Charge. You really looked across. And there was a guy getting body surfed across or. I was in another world. Bye. About doing anything remotely other people were for some reason. For some reason, I say video him saying get off me.

She doesn't know what happened over there and the section. She's like Joe. Sausage vendor? Oh, I didn't assault. Well. Technically this. In the press. Those brother in the way, I mean, he was begging for his life every game. We're playing for our lives out there. If this guy gets choked out between intermediate. Seventy we lease out four more games. Even find him like toss some fifty bucks and be like, hey, when we score again, you need to come right back down here. And he's choke you out. Was such not into any just like trying to that's like his food on his table. Here's to yet. He did not expect Frank for Ellie hanging on them choking them out like reversely yank in the neck shutout Rudy being in the Rudy was in the mix. He was washing them. And he had to fricken deal with me jumping around like I was like a. Islander fans be like chill out or. No, no, no, please. The guys who are left me who I was just hugging dead. They had no idea. It was going guys. What was the guy in front of you get in front of me? The hog. I said I think that was the only time I've gotten hug since his son was.

We've never seen before naked by the end of this point. I do think it changed a little bit because they win this. They do go to Barclay's. Yeah. That's right. So I don't know the same vibe choke. Kids. Get arrested heart of the week this fight NBA two K handshake line. Over the Celtics. Solta hawks hawks one. It's all on the Celtics guy. He comes out. And then push. Kevin. I dunno. I kinda like if ever you're doing a handshake line and someone throws a show. So stupid. How how do these games work is five on five same? So like one guy just controlling someone like runs painter paint doesn't get a touch. Well, that's on the point guard to give them a touch. I know. But that's gotta suck. It's no different than real basketball. Right. Bassel your like, your least physically like, you know, active, and you're just going back and forth. Think good. I think I think good rally. Everyone's the same real physically active what in the video game. It's like everyone's doing the same no different than real basketball except in real basketball. You're like actually getting a workout. But nobody's getting workout. Right. I know. But if you're the guy who just controlling center going into never before. Ain't never call. We'll call for the ball establish. I mean, I think it's a serious game. If you get like low post position used to get the ball. I think they're yelling at you. Like, dude, you suck clear amount makes face. There's definitely got to be. I mean bull hog suck. No matter what. But it's got a really suck. Okay. A lot more. I feel like I used people always used to get playing video right? Right. That's why. Should be doing the handshake line in the fucking game to totally how does that everything should be?

Leadership on the front foot was established to provide different ideas and thinking for our community. The views in this podcast, a general in nature, and should not be construed as advice. Today we talk with cybersecurity expert Brian Smith of Quad Iq. Brian was shanties fascinating story along with some timely advice about keeping safe in an online world. In this first episode discussing Olefins, Cyber Security, which is very timely topic. Because so many businesses have sent people heim to work from Heim. And also individuals being forced to use technologies sometimes for the first time, but also to use them differently. So a security is a topic that's really close to my heart. Because twenty eighteen way, capital partners had are on break, shebeens. It was a very innocent move on one about team members when they clicked on. What's known as a fishing, a mile and everything unfolded from there. Thankfully, there was no harm done. But as anyone in the audience, who's ever been hacked will know it is an awful feeling, not unlike when you're homeys, robbed and ransacked.

Service provision with I. Guess You Build A. A. A saint. Judy in culture of of helping to protect people. An enthusiasm for. End, probably coming with that, ISN enthusiasm for risk pretty much what we do with business to deal with risk we do with threats, and and we're very familiar with in online that I've Amman. Korean so coming up through the years, but has been dealing with stealing three skin The skills that thing I will to understand that the law in move consequences events Mike Calculation about. How much if you can afford to put into dealing with an MGA batted in disarray A. Y.. Pretty, good skills of lint Iva of many decades. It a pretty valuable at the moment. You know I think I. Think I've a things that have happened to mock Doug Wheel discussing few things that are happening more career always in Washington DC numidian aftermath of nine eleven and I remember. Some gripe parallels to the across in that there was a great deal of fear and panic ends. Uncertainty and The American plush in particular winning lockdown there are similar to what we're experiencing at the moment. dealing with different citizen consensus better sponsors, the sign the panic buying in all sorts of things. But there was a couple of things that struck me about the two experiences. Is that was astonished at how quickly even big society? We sort of terrible things. Happening can can normalize and can enroll itself and. It's another wife signed. These too will pass. But economies Saudis can have. Resilience that sometimes in the parent in the midst of the Cross. Oh I. Don't think that's definitely the case nothing was starting to see. A grain shoots now, which is placing I'm probably other thing. does as a matter how stressful the situation is always gonNA minute to sink. and. Practical in my sky says you can Max. Big Decisions might very very quickly without she's talking to sink. This is one of those occasions where reminded. Amid his longtime and and end the chicken promotions before making decisions and. And endure them cycling. Look You mentioned Romania earlier and the the Medical Center. That's under pressure. And you also talked about this idea of protecting others I. Think we all have view of ourselves as where the good guys who actually the bad guys that people like you up trying to protect us from. Him Look at some. It's a rich and diverse field. I mean at the one end it starts with The juvenile half or the script activities. In the board kids at high and this a few at the moment Who stops trauma the hand at at breaking things in. An, Or even just investigating things in themselves into trouble. And you know this is from taunts. Tana It's been a couple years. It's Saint Prosecution of young pissing happen. In Australia undesired coupling so That's where it stops. Then it really moves into. The criminal. Criminal, gangs doing an organized crime is a very substantial money in a ruben on chrome and very sophisticated market for open crown. As they will shoo witnesses in any other part of society, and they do very well. On, the very well funded and then it's wrought and. Now. We particularly saying this at the moment, but. Even J. Political Saints? She's saying The American military. Bang challenged around the world and vice a lot the Gulf. And South China Sea. To test them. Knowing that they're under stress and the exact same thing's happening in Saugus by. The stack is used Saugus notch to the. The physician are doing so actively in this is not just a kind of the nineteen seen. This is happening all die every day and. We'll talk about the example of North Korea for instance, which is alleged to to. Fund itself to the tune of on the two billion dollars, a year or hacking, a small businesses in the West to relieve It's sanctioned situation so. You're up against a whole range of threats and it's ice. All! The the big threat necessarily just go to the big will defend targets in the same, wise the small. Backyard operations died after. Similarly small targets dog to anybody saw. That symmetry is a feature of the Internet and allows anybody tap ago doing anything against anyone else. So! Do you think that that allegation that rogue states like North Korea and other other Reich sites that have? Sanctions imposed on. Do you think that's true? They actively rising hard currency that way. Article I think without a doubt. I think Steitz, not just North Korea that sites many in very dog, using saw goofy to advance their interests, and whether it's rising capital. oil doing stallions voting at southern strategic times absolutely to doing it I mean striking has admitted. To to doing it. For years ago. To having an offensive Shaw goofy capability that is using. So, I think that day at tapping in. Stealing money off label absolutely within within the realm of possibility. Rising and I'm really interested I could say why. Financial services firm would be targeted in a in a in an attack. But why would a medical practice? Is it just money that they're awful? It's probably chasing. It differently and. Impatiently formation, so I medical practice or little. Similarly. How information about Piper win markets. So. There's a very thriving. Black market operates nine nine on the dock wig. The information is try it. So in any identity information on the hands on as some value to someone someone. And it might be just to h white yet. Another attack or to to monetize in some. We'll look a strike to a question. That was put to us in the registration prices. This is from Angus. And, he or paraphrase do. Can you say a time in the future where individuals will have to buy back their privacy? Much Information Online. You know and will be a time where we have to pay to be able to restrict the information. That's available. I'm definitely well I think it's already started and. The why a lot of vendors doing at ease having premium features For their products that entity it easing those premium features that you get the protections that you need. And You know it's it's the what you pay for them. Particularly very careful what you don't pay full things that have free generally end. There's plenty of free things on the Internet. We using a freight platform here but as a general rule I come with lower levels of security and privacy protection, and it's particularly. Prevalent in the enterprise of if you're buying software if you want the full protection, the full encryption fully access control the fully GOV logging. Those things extra, and so it's GONNA reverse of from what angus design is do we have to buy your privacy, but I think differently when you buy. Sufferers him. Often tying extra will get you better. Security faces. Think! the. Kenny Pie will you definitely can Pi- nine for instance? to exercise your rats on the European side of the Europeans have A. Piece of legislation the. General data protection on its. Jd. they allow you to exercise what you ought to be forgotten, so you can. You can contact Google inside. Lot You to get me on audio. Late records that you'd accumulated bat me and I have to respond to that now. That's not easy. You've got a lot of people who've changed like communicates, so you can stop trying to do that. It's this organizations. Custom, to actually go out and. And have them forgotten so it starting in a couple of wise? So they go angus, the future is here already. The. I think this next question. I want to go into some of the risks that consumers vice touched on that amendment a guy but. We are all. Customers and clients of organizations and on our that I didn't months two years ago. I thought the good cybersecurity having a good spam filter an anti on what do they call it thing in the server room? The file will Yeah, and I thought that was enough, but my experience tells me that it's knowing so. Important question what what are good businesses doing to protect themselves from this risk and to protect? You know their customers the pinal. Private information. Are they the the the first thing is it's not a one off task and I think we say Tony Organizations traded his to be sort of mine. Materially dealt with we seeks desktop security moved on. The enterprises are dealing with it. Not just an ongoing. Why at twenty four seven as well but I should say this journey. The threat is changing all the time in your environment is changing all the time and it. It does like a lot of educate. You'll security up tonight. Just you know for instance in the last two weeks crime, browse of office. Wait End, apple critical patches for this software, which if not patched? Would People serious serious risk. Now a lot of businesses Donovan Neither out and that they have to do something bad soy. An at this happens. We'll talk so I'm prepared to invest in continuously along him. organizations are getting some unlock as extreme to help them when we look after twenty seven. We look for the Shoda. To make sure that threats not not evolving vulnerabilities all wing in their environment and the dealt with quickly. ENDED IN I. Probably the. really doing his taking the the regulatory responsibilities very. Very seriously, so their understanding their exposure to things, privacy. Act I understand the regulations. In a vertical whether it's helpful, financial services or Shop. At banking regulations whatever it marked by understanding what you regulations So. You! Say you look off job and I'm not trying to give an ad figure on really not. Not might sound like it, but when you say you look after your class twenty seven. What does that actually make because I think that's a very important place of puzzle Yep. I in a way and other vendors despise what we do is we get all the telemetry it, but all the data out of your environment this is. Not your emails and know documents by your daughter. She lock about what network traffic is is going through your environment whether it's your cloud serves as you go on on premise networks with with divorces, sitting on this to look at what is the voice is doing and sing with the the being targeted, or whether the hackers in there is actually using them or about to launch. A ransomware attack. Is stealing information. We're sitting on saw embalmment fighting for banking transaction to go through jaunt to save you into thinking. That, there's someone else send and manipulate payments and contracts and other things so w, if you see someone trying to log into Siam network from reminding yet very very very quick response. Yeah that's raw and we have caught to be the technology that seats underneath tells us do that very clever tehnology, but essentially what that save I? To filter out all the noise, because in a ninety nine percent of you nitwit been on and tell us that one percent. This is unusual behavior. and we need to do something about inside. It's a short term fix which might be in a Dan Shane will book up on you. Fall will delight name out but there's also an important role helping catch you and your business, either along with him to deal with China that goes on in your environment with the threat so that you're always keeping out, so you don't find yourself hype. Leslie behind, the game. Come the Isis, yeah, show now I do want to move more into the consumer spice got a really great question from Alex. Can Brian Please give us a brief explanation of the DOC. Ross I kind of talk with is really just locked the real whip, but it's not. It's not visible and is not indexed inside. Is what the. The the search engine soon. As early computers that are connected globally Web I recognize them, and they put him into a sort of a fine books so that you can find the. Browser works the DOT wave on the on the hand is. Just the sign is just computers connected to this worldwide network, but I. I haven't seen. Dix that I haven't been putting the angle, so you kind of look up which joy to find them. You have to know exactly what you need to go. There's hopes to help, but. But essentially you need to know exactly what you're going. And you can go to that place It's Unfortunately, it's not an inaccessible place. It's often talked about if you need some special skills and special abilities together as if she going to another planet. Now it's very easy to get to the. and Eighties difficult for people. Lauren Force to investigate and it's very hard to regulate because you dine. Have Courts like? Google play by the rules mainly. In regulating the open web, but but it's it's. It's very similar, even respect Okay so meeting to the more. It in the conversation I suspect it would be really easy for people to take the view. Look air x billion people on the planet. What are the chances of it's going to be May. I wonder sometimes where the people only really react when they've had any should. What the risks we face as individual concealments. Look. On the the premise that it's very very loyal. familiar in individual because billions of people in the world. This is only affecting a small chunk of them. Is it on sadly is is is simply just not the case. It is very unlikely now to have anybody who hasn't had some some of the Dada breaks in one one way or another. So, there are literally billions of breached accounts sitting on the dock with. Many many more than. The. and ninety that represents statistical reality that in using individual some point, but what are the case? I mean really. Losing your privacy and having a suffer identity fraud. Is really the main issue that happens to the individual. And to give you an idea of how. Individuals GET CAUGHT UP IN A. Lot of these corporate? Sauber texts. We see that both monetary fraud. To get the money loaned out of Australia that have to attack any individual's identity and embrace the bank account. So I have to some pool, suspecting on speaking individual gets breached so. in a half million dollars can get landed at their Camp San Jose's. and that's how you get drawn into it, and so we say quite a bit of individuals getting caught up in a much because scam at the uses a as a as a point if you are. And that's what the targeted soy identity fraud. And banking is a K. Ariza eight individuals. Losing your identity documents doesn't what's and trivial, but it is a royal pine as a Royal Pine in the neck to have to gown China's your identity documents. To get on the wrong end of one of the consistent fruits and you won't have your identity sold on and market so ten times ten different threat coming back at you. I the months or even years saw. Can have profound. It's a really day. The mine things You know we say with individuals occasionally getting caught up in things lot ransomware with getting the ransom demanded of them, but more often than not. It's sort of it's. It's pity. frauds with individuals getting sucked into situations other extorted for money or tricked out of their the money. Just lost you. Did. It. Because, he's a guy with a whip is. Everywhere I guy in the last month puffing followed by a man or person whipper-snipper whether it's in my front garden. The Back Garden is a whipper-snipper everywhere and is now in the park across the ride. Sorry about that. Saw Win when we look at this risk side. The most individuals probably aren't going to be a ransomware target. That's going to be more about business. You know. They'RE GONNA go for big target. But trying to get money out of your bank account by saying we'll. We've got this information about you and we. We're GONNA rats. Twenty thousand dollars. That's still a lot of money. But how? How does that will come to get? How did the how does that information? I assume the. Password information that sort of thing when you say, get sold. Probably get sold dot web. But how does it play out? So I'll give you an example. Give you a specific example of a of a of a case. Of Lots of Someone has the browser could get in. A suspicious. A Mao phishing email that click on the link? it installs something in a plug into the browser that sits in the banking information. The next on I. Get onto the The bank website? It redirect some of that information to the attack. Like, and then getting it and do things in the bank account I. Get credentials into the Bank camp. And then use that to. Set up a business, so that will go on. And then I set up a business completely legitimate, but on long established business that has a bank account strata as dynamic diamond name I. Use that to launch attack. against. Target. and I look for that target to mister x funds for instance, because it's done the citing Raymond. They rating their emails. Is Starting to getting saw the. Transaction, and the money gets sent to you know the the the first victims bank account. in the hack gets in there since that money, and all the rest of the the victims money by the way out of the country. In a single transaction. that. What one example! There's many other things about how. To get this out. On it starts with that phishing emails spam looking stuff that comes into your inbox. And, then it can come night into in serious financial. Also, let's talk about future phishing emails on my phone, which is on silent, but it's right here in case I get. A lick from Rachel. Telling me I've done something wrong. The emails just come into my account, and it says capital partners buoyed now. Cynthia and a fun number has left you a message. Twenty three seconds long now know that spam so i. just get rid of back. Tell us what? What's fishing fishing a mile? So The attacker is using the college of of Papal. social engineering paypal's attend uses to trick you into thinking that legitimately on Click on on tank fishing, but. The the premises this talk legitimate email. With Blaine. would sort of modern humans are acculturated or Prying into just plowing through a, and. Instant messaging and social media. You know we're taught to to. Automatically so the click through an and do with these messages is. That's what we do with Chevelle off. inside I rely on that that.

Bet you'd give you possibly to why and then within about ten minutes after that I'd be in your account. Extraordinary it's really extraordinary. Isn't that funny? Just come up on the queue and I a friend of Mine Diane who's on the coal. On this Webinar has just said you won't believe it i. just got that same symposia a mile, so they must just broadcasts as to thousands and thousands of people at a time. Absolutely, it's done on industrial have to set up shoes and I would send this so that Sinai MT would guide to millions of people potentially. and in different forms because that's which induced computers. You can automate Ann. Arbor Lodge scowls and said I will end. I will get a percentage of people who click on presented very. And unfortunately percentages in that law but. Even if it was very loud I, would still get thousands of people falling victim to that attack. It's why it's a trillion dollar industry. And on really conscious I think we need to really dig into bit more of the detail he had because. We within Al Clot by some community. They are obviously people with. Vastly differing. Technology backgrounds and experiences so so when you think about this in the I, think everyone recognizes spam now. I guess that's the first. Line of Defense is your personal response to your personal responsibility. If you will around your how you interact online and I think within email accounts where aware of that. Can you just take a snap to the Internet in general news sites, and where where are the other risks that we need to be aware of? Well the thing is. The vast majority of the Internet these places. You shouldn't guy. is the reality for parade but the the the percentage of the title Internet at his Siphon, usable and useful in law is actually quite small, think so. I think it's really important to off slight The says that you. Want to guy an end to recognize. With assigned to a Lotta people at the moment they're literally now.

You know you're looking you just reading stuff about whatever an area of interest include when you click again and then you click again. All Looks Legit I. Think you can tell when you're on a pint in the goodness this is this is just rubbish. Meghan Markle so's the coin for ten billion dollars united. Okay. That's probably true. but but had you distinguish that? Yeah, it's tough fraught, because a lot of the new thoughts will embiid to potty appetizing. In sought so annette.

Slightly and lower your defenses Before before I disabled. That I want to be obvious so that they're actually taking you through. A lead nurture. Price as all nice trying help create some confidence and trust in night. Thing I have a guy. That's. NIZING. Okay so. I think we've looked at the risk pretty well. How do we protect ourselves? What's the best thing we can to protect ourselves on? Sorry the, there's a couple of really really good things you can do, and he'll get a little bit technical. multifactoral casual second factor of syndication. which is another Password might you? A Mile a lot of your? Social Media Platforms have that now. You've probably used to with your banking. mushy banking transactions require sort of a second factor. We've got other putting Akali. What you've gotTa Click on an APP at the moment of Rausing All of the You've got a response. In semes- message that wanted putting together in scope, multifactoral indication consider an extra password I'm all sorts of statistics for macher southeast. I actually that said. They've been tracking breaches of Mockus of the town. SOGHRA a period. and. Ninety nine point nine percent of all data breaches against Marcus of because I didn't have multi sectoral syndication in. so it's a very effective another while fictive control site. It's the it's the apple. The saw using has multifactoral. INSI-. To fight sometimes code can factor with indication use it. the next thing would size it. This is in addition to being very careful about what you click on and being very fishing away. And immediately delayed ING. Fishing. A MOUSE! Them. the next thing is really mind time. The computers working so patch patch your operating systems, pat. She'll software patchy browsers That's a little technical, but encourage FIBS, not that hard to find out how to do, and that can vastly reduce the number of I. Probably The you know the sort of handful of things I would say in addition to sort of general housekeeping. Get a good Antigua's. US? Get in the habit of using a password manager, people who've rate poss- Woods, Pasta on their internet banking us on facebook account as they used on some other platform that they're just because that's convenient. That's eighty. That's incredibly dangerous because. If you've raising password and you'll some application that you've raised on hasn't got as good securities eubank, but it's the same password I get breached. Guess what the heck is has has got the password. Your bank account. And, we say that happened. A lot to get will be cool with manager. On a stickler for these reused possible, don't any sought look cam the other day about one hundred sixty seven past wits. Separate. Things. Showing. Tight along to accumulate too many passwords to remember so us. One of the japs to to help you do that like so so just give us a little bit more on how these APPs work. What are they? What do they do? How do they work? That some have some different faces bicycle, think of it just as a digital book. Way You can readily store securely old as different passwords, and it has a password for you to get into the attack a bar metrics. They can use you thumbprint to get into a quickly a every time. You create an account, so you saw I'm stuck at GONNA stop. Internet shopping on a new a new saw the voss many create account. you at the site home just signing into this new account and putting in credentials creating a password euro, putting that dates out into the APP which sits on your fine or on your desktop. You cited into the African minutes. If you'd a fugitive reference in the future when you close that at. That book of possibilities is locked and wouldn't necessarily be out to get into. That saw you going to get back to you APP to get you possibly and Brian. That's a question I. Get off at high, but what if lost pasta attacked. Then in trouble. Then you're in trouble. So? but you've got to think about in in sort of. A bit of a title of risky. It's much more likely that you'll get a that. You'll get breached. By reusing passwords. Then an organization last boss, a one password did it as dedicated itself. To protecting pipe was passwords. That's the business that invested heavily. they've been held up to great scrutiny by get. People attempting to hack them old at every day. End in the minus successful so yeah, definitely, it is risk. It's pretty a pretty small rich compared the voiding. Yeah okay. Another question Promo Audience I will paraphrase a little bit. A quick part of the question is about. The not with the features worth it. You know. Well I. Think we're GonNa cycling assume that the pipe versions going to be a lot better than the free version. I mean not of course not always, and you don always now. There are things that you can do to check under the hood. You can go king acidification, the organization Evans independently There are. No things will also precautions and American canning standards, certifications specifically for the. American companies. which you know, the Van Demont attest to. Really interested, you can a little ICAN gallon have. at one of the certification bodies with that organization actually does have in for instance. You can check And then there's the court of public opinion as well if you if you if you furlough things if you go with them and enjoy the classic example run in the press. Caught roundly about a month ago. but if you actually got on the Internet for the wall, you did some Ra- log You start to get a bit of a better idea. What the real stories with security in in articles on the truth is welded the free version The security guy was caught pool but it just mid. There was a few features you had to enable. We have always so from the sites in order to to Mike it. Now I saw rule of thumb. Nothing with having you spray. The general, the other part of this was more of a statement from Chris, but I think there's a good question. I'm aware of this being a topic of conversation. Is it true that the MAC office at Mac Os you know the the apple operating systems, a much more secure than than PAC- based ones, and therefore you really need a. A Protection System as well as you MAC operating system. Yeah, look, the the answer to that is that neither not more inherently secure it's a matter. Did she speaks saying Marker soft. And pay sea-based. Technology Mike's up something typically speaking, there's a lot more vulnerabilities in the market and the reason the apple market. Could get. This is more of a mortem, and so there's a perception that they move secure. look I mean apple will tell you sit and things about this system that makes it on most secure, but I certainly recommend you go without things. Anti Bars so even if you're gonNA Simply must have meant you are on the. and it you know if if if the edges arguing affect. The KAISA. About the medical practice that's been hacked from Romania. They will mix And the attack of Guts Mel wear into their environment so. It definitely does happen. So, can you? Just real off a couple of night while you might not much is not. Is it possible for you to? Reel off a couple of names of the sort of Virus wear. PLAYAS and products that up a worth putting on shopping list all year looking can. She missed by some happy to recommend beat defender is one. which is very powerful it consistently. Sort performs very well. And is caught cost effective as well Saudi, definitely bit bit different. She's caught. Good train. More crows caught caught. Who'd as well? but really look in in in the Malay Anti virus and anti malware spice guy. You get what you all. If, you're in a real hurry and you're on a mock system in windows. Descend a sure that's working. Which is the bill? antivirus in in Microsoft is getting. A bad reputation, but it's getting better.

Securing Our Security: Sen. Mike Braun
"This is the takeout. Not what your country can do for you with major Garrett, mister, Gorbachev tear down this wall. Is the change has come through America. And we will make America great again Wilkins, the very best part of my broadcast week. I major Garrett chief Washington correspondent CBS news host and creator, this amazing program notice to take out we thank each and every one of you for finding it bringing into your life, either through his podcast CBS n or more than forty radio stations across our great country, as you know, take out his always always always built around meal. Why because the conversation is just more natural around a meal, and where are we dining today? Well, it's a place. You might have heard of it's called McDonald's. Okay. Yes. Right near the White House. New York avenue thirteenth street. I look out the window to the east. I can see the treasury building. And I know just on the other side of that is the White House who is our guest. Well, he in part suggested this location for the takeout brand new Senator newly minted from the state of Indiana's name is Mike. Mike braun? He's got a fascinating back story getting into politics very late in life after a very successful career in business. We'll talk about that talk about the shutdown lots of other issues, but I Senator and welcome to Washington you're here in your second week as the United States. Senator welcome to the take-up podcast microphones a good to be here. And that place I spent a lot of time feeding myself on the campaign trail, so that's why we're here you want some street cred about your normal nece as a an American from Indiana. Mcdonald's right. Exactly. Okay. Are you when you're not busy McDonald consumer? I am okay. And I found a couple of places here in town. My new place just east of where I live is going to be Jimmy tease along with McDonnell. There you go. I like the local down Kaci on Jimmy tease. We take the takeout. They're in the not too distant future. Wait a minute Kat Janas not down with Jimmy teas we're gonna have to investigate that further. Slummy go through your biography of it Senator be a and economics. Wabash college worse. Wabash calm while mashes in Crawford's Ville, Indiana, Canada center, the state, you grew up in Jasper worse. Jasper Jasper Indies down in the southwestern part of our state. So what was good about Wabash for you? Well, while mash is one of I think, the two all male schools left. So I actually went there as a biology major for my classmates, and I wanted to become doctors someday, and I shifted to political science in my sophomore year and got an econ degree the other four doctor. So after that was headed to Vanderbilt on JD MBA that was a four year deal, and I was too anxious to get into the real world. So I do an application in the business school out east. We were there for two years out east to wanna be able to more specific than. Sometimes I had to defend that when backed Indiana, but I went to Harvard Business School Harvard ladies. So it was unusual. It makes you an elitist. You know that now not necessarily you got to hear the rest of the story ahead. My background and interest was finance, and you would have ended up probably on Wall Street, and I've kind of seen some careers go. They're not end up. So well, but I chose in my wife did move back to our hometown. And greatest decision we ever made our forty year reunion. We had to put a little clip in there in terms of you know, was it important to us. Of course, it was. It was great deliver way to see something else. And I said, the smartest decision we ever made was to move back. Their hometown was hired by a local kitchen cabinet company to work there and maybe rise through management over time. And to ANSI wanted to do my own thing. My Dan a ownership and a little company that was kind of floundering, and he said, hey, this would be a great opportunity go there seeking turn it around nineteen Eighty-one that was the year the farm crisis that was. Severe for farmers as the commercial real estate and auto crisis would have been in two thousand eight so had business was circling the drain almost as soon as I got there at the start buying and selling us trucks and a quick moment to keep the doors open. I started dabbling with what I do. Now. Fifteen employees for seventeen years new. I had a tiger. By the tail grew the company from in ninety eight to two thousand eight from fifteen employs three hundred at about ten locations through the midwest twenty-seven years in my hometown, I'm selling auto and truck accessories that aren't needed all my assets commercial real estate. I'd said, wow. You never know where life's gonna lead you. We lived alive. One of the reasons I'm coming here to DC being opportunistic reaching after business, but always living within our means with a low overhead industry shrunk by fifty percent. The phone starts ringing off the hook. Because. So many people are out of business. I had a decision do I really push to grow the business or sit back. Take advantage of what looked like it was going to be favorable competitive scene. We grew from ten locations in about ten states now sixty five and thirty nine states increased about five times in size. And now have about a thousand employees live the American dream three and my four kids work in the business with a good young executive team in their thirties. And and the business does what what do you sell? We distribute auto and truck accessories are V, parts and accessories. Coolers, knocked down shed stuff that's big and bulky things at other places don't wanna mess with God it, so why give all that up to become a beltway insider because now you're an incumbent your Senator. Now, you're part of the swamp whether whether you like it or not when you run for reelection as I presume, you will someone's going to say that about you. Well, I get. Asked all the time, especially when I declared back in August of seventeen along with do you need to have your head examined? And I said, well, we'll see when I saw what a task. It was going to be the come from the outside to try to get name recognition to finance a campaign. It was daunting the first public opinion poll in September. And I had two percent. And it was a fifteen months slog of fourteen eighteen hour days six days a week. And when I look at that, it's hard to know how you got yourself up to do it each day. Yeah. What was that? Is that ego is that some sort of burning need that shoes recently discovered so late in life? It was a fresh people of the political bug early in life, and they rush through it for their whole life. There's something wrong with that to show lots of guests like, and that is what you'd call more of a career politician when you start early and build a career through it. I signed a term limits pledge. So I'll be here. No more than two terms. There's a Bill out there. Now that I'm going to be a co-sponsor up, and I'll just be out front. I think if you had term limits take the money out of it more people would take an earlier entering into it without having to build a career to get there. And I think we'd get a little better individual coming DC. We got a lot of smart people here with high aptitude that have done very little in making payrolls making a budget running things. And you know, I think the president ran on that, of course, is taken a lot of heat, you know, because he doesn't have the experience of government. I think that's largely a false argument. I think he's done a pretty good job on the agenda that he ran on in general, though, I think if you had fewer career politicians you'd have less of what troubles DC currently. I wanna read something that was in the Indianapolis star written by Tim swan Ren's. Mike Braun is proven. He's a pro at defying expectations before this year. Braun who had never run for office higher than the Indiana general assembly was largely unknown among voters outside of his hometown of Jasper yet when pitted against two incumbent US house members in the Republican Senate primary may won handily on Tuesday. He did it again. This is written after election day, the mild mannered businessman from small town, Indiana in defeating incumbent Senator Joe Donnelly pulled out a high profile victory with enormous national implications, you defeated not one not two three incumbent as a political outsider is that because Indiana crave something that its own elected officials can't provide. Well, I don't know that I think there's maybe a little bit of that. But for me personally being an underdog and building business, and when I sized up the market the political market, and when I had seen what had just occurred in two thousand sixteen on the largest stage. I said, hey, if I'm going to do it. There's a lane. There's a lane. And when I mentioned earlier two percent could be discouraging. I knew I had a good plan. I just had to execute it. Well, and I think the part that was hard to understand is once you get through the primary in your into the main event, and I mentioned it in my acceptance speech, it is so nasty in it gets so dirty. I became a heartless business owner at a never heard an ill word about my business until I ran for Senate. That's the turn off for many people. Why they would never do it. I wish it wasn't like that it currently is part of the process. That's the voice of Bron brand new Senator from state of Indiana, major Garrett. This is the takeout were at McDonald's downtown Washington DC back injustice. You're listening to the takeout from CBS News Radio. Welcome back Garrett way. Mcdonald's in downtown Washington. Dc end I wanna make it clear. How're in this McDonald at the local local, family owned and operated? Mcdonald's by Carlos Matteo Carlos has just to my left. I'm gonna wave to mobile their house. Thank you for your hospitality. Mcdonald's run. And a franchise way. That's who are franchisee is Carlos. Thank you for inviting us in and I met Carlos earlier in. It was a similar entrepreneurial story. His dad's started the whole process in ninety nine belted up twenty one locations in Carlos joined about six years ago. Great story three my four kids working my business. Exactly, you mentioned that before we move onto news the day and all that other stuff. I want also mentioned something there is part of your life. That reads you've described a good portion of it the American dream. But there's also this thing that is kind of an American dream concept from the fifties, not as topical or contemporary. Maybe today. But you married your high school sweetheart, I did read. Yep. Still married still married. Yeah. And a lot of a lot of folks might interstate. Wow. I I'm really glad I didn't marry my high school girlfriend or boyfriend, you know, explain on its how that works. Well, we went to grade school in high school together. She went to you. I went to wall bash. They were about sixty miles apart made it through that and got married right after we both graduated made that decision to move back our hometown. And it just as worked out. She's the real entrepreneur, we are firs the real risk taker. Well, listen to this the first thing we did was against the rules of real estate. We bought a building downtown when we really shouldn't have fixed it up. She's been there forty years as her only job in the entrepreneur that started before I did. So there you go way to go Maureen essay. All right. So as you know. Senator Washington the nation at least partially partial is a big word the days partial government shutdown. How is this going to end? Well, I think it's really crystallizing what is wrong with DC. And maybe it's just that we've evolved to this point on any of the critical issues, and I'm gonna site. You know, we did criminal Justice reform, you do other things, but when it comes to border security when it comes to the cost of healthcare when it comes to taxes, we have really become polarized where they're so little center ground in one of my key goals is to of course, I'm co authoring a bail. Maybe we'll talk about okay with Senator Manchin. I think there's room that we can get together on these key issues here. I look at the fact that you know, we got a shutdown and that's being extended because of the border security issue. And most of what President Trump is wanting to do on the border would have been blueprint. For what most Democrats were interested in doing as recently as a few years ago, but everybody on each side think angles everything so politically that even if you do have a common interest. You don't wanna get there? We've got to find a way around and to Democrats if they were sitting here would say, yes, we hear you Senator Braun all of that is valid, but there was a midterm election. You were elected the Senate game to Republicans the house gained forty Democrats in those Democrats heard and saw a popular vote majority. As large as any time since nineteen seventy four a sweeping victory for House Democrats who put a lot of these questions before the public and the public rendered a verdict, and they would say, it's our responsibility. Having just come from that election to fight for our principles, which is no wall are no funding and the presence got back down. No doubt about that. And that's no different than President Trump winning in sixteen or us, maybe adding a little bit to the Senate margin. It's cloudy or now, but the context is still. That we've got to find ways, and I'm gonna mention infrastructure the cost of healthcare. I took on the insurance companies ten years ago in my own business. And I think the blame for that issue which along with border security where the two biggest things in Indiana. We've got to find ways to address it Madda few democratic senators day of swearing in. And we talked about it briefly with a couple of them. And I think there would be common ground. So I believe that there's more there. We just have to reach hard fart. It gets politically spun so quickly by both sides that you never get a chance to get there. So full transparency with the show every time our audience knows that respects that admires that we're recording this on Tuesday. You'll hear it Friday and over the weekend. So Tuesday, you know, ory the country is expecting the president to give a nationally televised address from the Oval Office the first of his presidency that will already have happened by the time you hear this program. So we're going to deal with those realities as best we can. What do you think is the current thinking among Senate Republicans stick with this fight as long as it takes the president said months, maybe a year are your colleagues willing to lock arms for that long and live with this partial government shutdown and all the negative effects were seeing rippling across the country. Have not talked many. Specifically, we do know that a couple of come out thinking that we should get the government back. Investors and Collins from Maine, Cory Gardner. Yup. Colorado both up in twenty twenty right? They're feeling. The heat already. No doubt about it. And I'm sure there are some others that are thinking the same thing. I think generally though, within the caucus here going to have people adhering do needing serious movement made toward securing the boarder I come from an area where having a secure border is an important philosophical issue. But we also suffer from some of the dysfunction that's occurring with immigration in general. You know, we've got a lot of employers that need some type of process that's going to be in place that gives them predictability on filling jobs. Let's not happening to that to that point e verify is not working because the partial government shutdown, and that verifies system to document those who should be hired. Or are least are qualified to be on only because the government is shut down. But also in general, I think it needs to be a tool that anybody that hires people uses, but I think this is just the point in time where where we're going to see if there's any common ground, and I think in the in the defense of the president he is taking an issue that unless there's been an pefect on our sudden change of heart that many Democrats were not too far away from what he's wanting to do. Now when you put your presentation in your style, and how you articulate an issue. I think some people might have an argument with that. I, but here when it comes to the essence of what we're talking about. I don't know sixty two percent. I heard on poll of all Americans think border security is a big deal in the center of the country. It's going to be higher than that. We've got to find out a way to secure the board. Or and then address all the issues associated with not having it. So fuck about security, the TSA is experiencing a kind of sickout other longer lines for everyone traveling around this country. We know statistically from this administration. Not just the previous administration had much the same data that most the people we should be legitimately concerned about enter via airport traffic, not crossing the southern or northern border. So isn't the partial government shutdown at least as it affects TSA, isn't that increasing our, insecurity, even as we're talking about securing our secure, it seems illogical to me. I think if they're being hampered with resources, you it'd be hard with a straight face to say that it's going to be as good as what it was. And that there might be problems that come up, and I think that's where when you do something like this, you got to be prepared to bolster areas like that if you're wanting to carry on with your point of view import. But you know, Senator you're learning this as you get the lesson of. Senate in the process. You can't just do that. It's either appropriated or it's not. And if it's not there's not constitutional authority to spend that money, which you want the constitution to be followed. I'm sure that every member of congress, and I think that's going to be the focal point as we go forward to where it's going to get a lot more excruciating for each side to persist in a point of view that doesn't cure it. So I'm thinking that we've got weeks ago, not months for the reason you mentioned in that Shirley will come together give minimum border security to the president. And those of us believe it needs to be done. And we get the government back going and start talking about some of the other issue. Are you open to an amount that's less than five point seven billion for the steel wall? The president's now talking I think the president said he might be I personally think it's gonna take more than that over time. But right now, we got a spouse. So and I think that that is such a small figure. Compared to the twenty five billion that everybody was kind of in on agreeing here few years ago. I hear you. I think you're saying the White House is going to need to give Democrats are gonna need to get. I think if we're going to get this thing resolved because we're so far apart in where that ends up. I'm hoping we stick as close to the five point seven as we can that's voice of Senator Mike Bron, our guest here at McDonalds downtown Washington, DC foods arrived fewer watching on CBS. And you gotta clip art and far my outstanding producer. Thank you Arden back in a moment. From CBS news. This is the takeout with major Gareth. That's me. Yes. My mouth is half full why because we're McDonald lunchtime Tuesday Micron new Republican Senator from Indiana is our guest you look to this moment ago. Senator I want to give you a chance to talk about this because it's your first piece of legislation. I think that's always a kind of a big moment for any it is incoming legislator Republican democrat Hausler Senate. What's the first piece of legislation you put your name one? What is it? Tell me about it. It has called no budget. No pay. And what a great opportunity to weigh in in a way that reflects your principles of where you've come from. And I'm gonna be interested in, you know, I'm signed a term limits pledge when Iran, and there's a bail out there now that I think Ted Cruz at sponsored. And it's got a feature in there where the people that need to vote foreign actually our grandfather do some degree. And I thought that was the only way you'll ever get that down the trail. But thanks congressional pensions or things and. I'm concerned with that. Nobody else has and we still get them. So comes to this. I think it's simple in my own business in our state legislature on the school board. I was on. If you didn't live within your means, balance your budget. It just didn't work you generally had hard statute that kept you in place that is not part of the formula now. So I think when you have a year through regular order to get a budget put the place, if you don't do it, you shouldn't get a paycheck in the real world you'd be out of business number one you'd be fired by your board. And you'd be ashamed if you were the CEO of your own company that owns so it just doesn't work we've gotten used to the fact due to the fact that alternately in a figurative way, you are the printing presses. Well, we borrow money to cover. These now trillion. Deficits and. Up to this point you could get by with it. But we're at such a level on our federal balance sheet that we're going to start paying the real consequences for it. And then you get down to just the practical aspect of people, even if you think the government should be smaller. You've got a lot of families now that aren't getting paychecks. And that's a real issue, regardless of what your philosophy is about the size of government. Nothing runs that way anywhere else. I'm on the budget committee, right? And I'm really happy that Senator mansions office reach crap from West Virginia. Yes. And he's a to me of, you know, governor farmer governor, he knows how things need to run a state if you're going to be functional and great opportunity for us to all have some real consequences. If we don't get it done. So let me describe this for my audience because I like to try to explain how Washington either works or can be proposed to work better. Washington has two stages to the budget process of budget resolution, and then thirteen separate appropriations bills one of the reasons. A partial government shutdown now there's about six of those appropriations bills haven't been passed for this fiscal year. So if I write your legislation correctly, you gotta do both all thirteen appropriations bills house and Senate and the budget resolution by the end of the fiscal year, which is the end of the month in September. I wrecked. And if that doesn't happen you stop getting paid you stop getting paid. And does that also take allocations out of your future pension as well because you're not getting that paycheck? I mean, Yes, Anything that comes along with not getting paid. You should feel the consequences even far what's taken out of your your mind. That would incentivize lawmakers to do this basic of business. I think it'd be a lot better than not having it concentrate the mind a little bit you bet because I think with the supply of the executive branch are only congress congress for Scherer. And if we could do it beyond that, I would want it to be all inclusive. So it's mostly the problem is here within the congress. You know, that's where the responsibility lies and the President Trump Princess is ready. Foregone his pay when he ran on that principle, but I think that. It's a shame. You need to do something like this to get something done in regular order. But when you get to the stage of the game or at telling you in the long run, my background is not only in a micro sense of balancing budgets. We're gonna have issues with our currency interest rates are going to start your reflect the fact that we're borrowing all this money through government. So the consequence with the president's leadership on this the deaths increased by two trillion dollars in the two years. He's been president end budget deficits arising, they're not falling is he failing on that. He's been there. Two years. One of his priorities was to shore up the military. I'm one that had I been there. I probably would have gone counter. Then I don't think I would've voted for that for the fiscal reason. And because to get the increase in defense spending the president as he said the time had to agreed with thirteen percent increase in nondefense spending as well. And to me the larger issue of the two even though defense is very important to mate would have been some way to hammer that out with maybe strings attached that you had to find savings. Elsewhere would have had taken a different approach would have talked about it, whether it would've caught stride. I don't know. But I didn't like the idea that it did take us from. I think roughly five to six hundred billion up back to trillion. We can't keep doing that. I've got to trust that when the president said he wanted to find five percent savings throughout all our all our agencies. Here few months ago that that's true. So we start the long-term process of getting these deficits down but doubling back to this underlying debate. That's prolonging the partial government shutdown when aides to Senator Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi came to the White House this weekend and said, well, we have other things we define his border security. The response of the administration was we'll add all that spending plus the border wall, and they'll be no offsets that's more spending for a priority. But no offsets. Meaning you're adding that to the deficit is that from what I just heard you say a rational approach so here, let's look at proportionality. We know what the federal budget is it's over four trillion dollars. He's scratching and clawing for five point seven in the context that many Democrats wanted to do five times that much just a few years ago. You've got to always take that dynamic in the consideration. The only way we're going to ever fix. The budget is going to be to where we take government down across the board. I was asked that in the first debate. And they thought I dodged the answer. They asked me in the two congressman what would you cut out specifically, there's nothing that was mentioned there that would have added up to any amount. And I said the only way you do this is you gotta do it across the board. Some people think that's simplistic because you should be more analytical should prioritize. You should prioritize something's matter more than I've made the simple point. Who would? No, no, you wouldn't as a CEO if my task for the year was a head to find savings of one percent across the board. I would before I right after I left the room. I jump up in the air and kick my heels together that would be that easy. Most people would not know the difference whether they had one of a hundred lasts anyway. So that in the real world is not a big deal in state government, you'd find it here it sacrosanct and we've been. And that's from your point of view part of the problem part of the problem because until you have a system in place, and I know there's a Bill that an hit the floor that base only twenty two votes among the Republican caucus that was the penny plan that's one percent. And until in Democrats ought to be interested in something that they believe so much in the federal government. They ought to be interested that it's health is good in the long run. I'd love to see some of them maybe trade off fiscal integrity to where we'd lean in on. Maybe some of the issues that they think are more important. Maybe that's the grand bargain in long run. We don't get the house in order. It will end up in a calamity someday. You've made a reference to a couple of times I wanna make sure audience understands what you're talking about saying the past Makram willing to spend five times this amount. I think you're referring creek if I'm wrong to the secure fence act, which was voted on two thousand six two thousand seven George W Bush's presidency. He signed into law double reinforced. Seeing an authorization Bill to do that. As what you're referring to that. And some stuff of smaller magnitude more recently. But yes, and so here's a key thing to focus on ladies and gentlemen, in Washington, speak authorization is an intention appropriation is money. You have lots of intentions in Washington people authorized, lots of things and they beat their chest in glory about all the things they intend to do. But until Washington spends the money, it's not going to happen. So that was an authorization not an appropriation. Now, we're starting to get to the actual fight over the money, not the intention. So do you think that Democrats are being hypocritical when they voted for authorization of a double fence, not a wall a double fence? And now, they're not giving up the month. I do I use that word hypocrisy. I would say it's changing your tune with. No good reason to do. So. And I think that if you wanna stretch it to be. Hypocritical. You could do that. I believe regardless of the semantics if we don't get away from that on both our side and their side in terms of trying to fix real issues craft solutions, but I don't think any of that happens, you know, infrastructures important to me. And that's the thing you hear everybody. Why can't you agree on safe bridges and good roads? While the reason that would be tough is it's a capital intensive project. It's been an eighty twenty funding rule with the feds new eighty states doing twenty. We're broke on our balance sheet, and it would cost so much to do that or invest in things like shoring up social security or Medicare. We've got to get to where we're living day to day within our means. And then re prior prioritize more on that in a minute. I major Garrett. Mike Bronx Senator from Indiana, our guest, we're at McDonald's and nice. You're listening to the takeout. I major Garrett. Welcome back. Mike, Ron Republican Senator from Indiana. Brand new fertile second week in Washington, and he's already takeout podcast microphones. You must have a really good communications director. So I do got you right here. You know? So when you go back, I told Joni Ernst this is well because we keep asking Senate Republicans to come on the show, and they keep blowing us off. So just tell them what they're missing not only a meal, but a good conversation a great meal, and you know, when I ran back in Indiana. I like doing this. I think if you run for Senate, you ought to be out there talking about your ideas in friendly turf. And where you're gonna get challenged and to me that's important in. I did it running for Senate. And I think it made a difference. So when we left you were talking about the balance sheet and the embedded difficulties and the one of the difficulty senators, I'm sure, you know, in a general term longer you serve on the budget committee. You're gonna see these numbers. Really reveal themselves to you is that two thirds one third split in our country it which is a complete reversal of where the two thirds one third split was nearly sixties. What I mean by that in the early sixties, we spent two thirds of our federal budget on discretionary annual spending four things that the government did and one third on fixed. Entitlement costs the cost of either pensions or Medicare or Medicaid. Now. It's two thirds one third one third on the discretionary the things we do annually to keep the government running federal research. Nasa EPA, all sorts of other things and two-thirds on entitlements. The president is said, I'm not touching those as someone who wants to look at the balance sheet as a realist, you have to know, whether that's a political thing, you can say or not that's not sustainable. It's not sustainable, and I got ask along the trail to where would you disagree with the president? If in fact, he's going to stand firm on that in the business world, it's called fixed costs and. Variable costs discretionary spending in the automatic stuff. You never do. Well, when your fixed costs are high one of the ways I kept my business nimble over the years is to keep them as low as possible. So when you get into a downturn or choppy waters, you're not overburdened by that here. We've got a lot of people that now depend on the fixed cost part of our government. So it'll take some real convincing and discussion. Before you get into the word. I mentioned earlier calamity of some sort that just solves the problem in a way similar to two thousand eight that will occur. Eventually if you keep on this trajectory, and there's more risk of that happening solves possible in the worst way possible. And it's it's through, you know, in the real world that's called some form of bankruptcy. And sometimes you don't recover, you know, with a chapter eleven you're out of business that will never occur in general hair. But again, it goes back to why are we putting ourselves in this position in the first place intentionally intentionally because no one's forcing us to do these set earlier, we've got a lot of smart people here. But they've never had the rules to keep them on the straight narrow which is I think some of the things we need to change. And they've never had the real accountability of the things I've mentioned earlier of the crewless of the marketplace. He behaved like this or the kind of statutes and rules that are in place for most other governments around this country. Would you like the president to be more forceful on this topic and change his point of view on entitlements? I think that when it comes to that since it's such a high fixed cost, and for the sake of people coming into the system and doesn't have to be done by creating any pain among the people that are already retired. For instance, are nearing it. We just need to make realistic decisions adjustments. They're going to keep the system in place. If you like the concept for folks entering into it. It'd be different from what it is now, but you have to start addressing it if not we're sticking our head in the sand well Medicare, for instance, I think it's twenty twenty three now where you start going south there. It's into the thirty thirty somewhere on social security start toying with insolvency. But that's not sneaking up on us. We knew that actually, you know, a decade or so ago. And the dynamics in terms of who's our growth rates are birth rates. All of that is different in you got to just hair just like you do in a business. You can't just keep doing the same thing. Because it's popular. It's the way it used to be described in the campaign is the most pro-trump Republican out there, are you? I like the fact that the system is being shaken. I think if anybody was happy with the fact that you've got an institution that's got a fifteen percent approval rating, and you've got people here that live in bizarro world for the reasons we've talked about Donald Trump is jet. Definitely shaken the foundations and does not live in a Perot world himself. Well, in terms of in terms of people allege that as you. Well, yes, I look at the fact that he has been the individual that is kind of set the stage, and hopefully he'll follow through himself. But maybe more of us. You know, I I you myself as kind of a recruit that's come here. Open minded, knowing I said earlier Democrats define the issues. Well, I think we as Republicans sometimes reflexively against it. There reflexively against reigning in the federal government. So so they can do the things they wanna do. And from your point of view are they reflexively against President Trump. To some degree. Yes. Because because he says that they have to be against it mostly because they even braced the federal government and the things they like about it, maybe more than the other side of the ledger. And I think that along with this if we're going to solve these problems in the long run, you're gonna have to turn over more of these responsibilities to the states, and I know Democrats generally don't trust that but states are generally financially strong. Our tax rates are now at a level where I think it's going to maximize job growth, and it's going to be at least neutral on government revenues. So I think we got the stage set part of that would be for Democrats. I think don't try to do as much through the federal government and don't live within a system that's an embarrassment because everything they wanna do is not being paid for is this president in your opinion truthful. I think everybody has a style in terms of how they are ticky late initial. And I think he uses the methodology that's worked for him. I've never begrudged that because I was so happy that we were shaking the system for the sake of Democrats and Republicans, and I've mentioned that during the interview many on my side of the aisle have been part of the problem where we've not had this kind of Frank conversation, where you're talking about the fact that, you know, the issues that are important generally they're out on front, and you know, that we need to listen to talk about the style for second. I went to more than seventy five Trump rallies during the two thousand campaign almost every one of them. I heard the presidency who's going to pay for the wall. Roar from the audience, Mexico Mexico's not paying for the wall. We're having this partial government shutdown because we have to pay for the wall. Does that strike you as inventive Crea? Active or misleading. I think when you run I've always been more substance guy, and I don't like the sizzle because of the point you're trying to make that never works in the real world anyway, and I think that in the game politics, I had to learn that you've got to articulate your point of view. You gotta be heard. He sent certainly has been heard and when he MRs louder, and it's louder, and it's, you know, maintaining that decibel level, I'm guessing that for him to do what he wants to do, you know, he might have to modify that to some extent be flexible there, but I still think that the things that he's running on border security. We talked about is really a fiscal conservative. That remains to be seen Albie trying to bend his ear that we need to rein that in. So that page is yet to be read two years. I'm hoping that more people on each side of the aisle cheese to get involved in politics. That are not from the establishment that might bring a little different point of view, at least to change dynamic were within. That's voice of Mike run.

Helped you strengthen your writing get free access or twenty percent off premium access when you visit the sponsored link of daily dot com slash pro writing aid so wow i reached out to pro writing eight actually for this specific sponsorship and most instances when you hear me being sponsored by a specific company they usually reach out to me and there's good reason why reach out per renegade because they are a company i stand wholeheartedly behind and they have such a human element to them. they're not just there just to take money and go pump a bunch of money into ads and things like that so i love me. Some pro writing aid and their tools are fantastic improving with every single update interational I use them with microsoft word documents. So daleks dot com slash pro writing eight and bloviating about our sponsors. Said love him so much fair warning folks were kind of going in today's podcast. Recording do not and i repeat do not invest into marketing and promotion. What you cannot stand to lose means that paid at our never guarantee anybody that sells you that. They guarantee success for your specific. Ads are full of horse manure. Right i'm going to give you some options. Some of them might work for you. Most of them might work for you. A maybe none of them were. But i do know through firsthand experience on a couple of these things that do work and i do know from secondhand experience about other authors having some success with these things so i'm going to steer towards five best ways for marketing and promoting your book with paid advertising. All right we're gonna start out with number one fiver all right. A lot of people were like. Whoa wait a second dude. You said this is not a sponsor podcast by them. Okay they're not paying me say this anymore. I can officially say this off the record I was the humanly against using five or for marketing and promotion. Because i was like odds probably just a bunch of these people that get a bunch of body traffic over on twitter and you know they're just gonna share it out to a bunch of fake followers and such like that. We're there are some gigs like that. You know you could probably steer clear but there are some legitimate gigs. There that actually do market and promote your stuff in fact just launched a video. Believe last week on my youtube channel where. I hired five. Gigs on fiber for marketing. Promoting my book and Though the results were not overwhelmingly awesome. They definitely were moving the needle in the right direction when it came to marketing promotion and the nice thing is i spent under one hundred dollars for these gigs and some of them. Actually stay up for the long term which means that i will be getting passive traffic from these specific sources than a bought from. If i got a little bit of foresight maybe a lower planning ahead of time. I would have invested in other gigs. That actually book a little further out. They come a little higher the cost but have a better reach to them I'll share with you in this very next tip here How to know who to trust. And it's gonna come down to number two influence. Marketing influence marketing. You're thinking to yourself all boy. This is where he's talking about going to somebody on has a big social following on twitter youtube facebook instagram. Tick tock whatever my be. Do your research in advance before parting ways with your money you need first of all make sure that the person has a following the next thing is do. They have engaged following now. I'm not just talking. About a bunch of hearts on their tweets or a bunch of re tweets and things like that. I'm talking about if you're on twitter you're seeing people commenting and putting legitimate comments and a sense of community there. Same thing with go for instagram facebook. Tiktok all that stuff. You wanna make sure that it's not just mt followers because empty followers get you absolutely nowhere. And when you're reaching out to influencers who might promote or market your book. You might wanna make sure it's within your niche. So let's just say for instance your health and beauty You're you're in your health and beauty niche. Then it's probably a good idea to reach out to say for instance a good friend of mine shannon blogs she's known as the lulu lemon expert. She has her own blog. She would probably be a great one to reach out to by the way. That's a free plug shannon If you happen to listening to this. I really was kind of riffing. I didn't plan on bringing you up. That's a great example. She would be good influence or to reach out to. If you have health and beauty book same thing could probably. Let's say for instance if you're writing health and fitness than maybe you would want to reach out to someone on instagram. That has a large following and very active following on instagram. Maybe they would be able to share your book now how much it's going to cost. It varies per each one of them have to approach the influence and find out what the rates are in anticipation that you're going to probably have to spend a pretty penny especially the larger. The following is in the morning gauge. The are be ready to haggle though. Haggle little bit number three facebook ads okay. Everybody's like wait. Whoa whoa i would rear dale talk about facebook ads too often for good reason because there is a steep learning curve in for the most part facebook ads then simple to a lot of people. But for me. I've always found it to be just a little bit overwhelming and i know there's few other authors that do and there's been some authors that will pump in hundreds if not thousands of dollars per day to send towards their book only to find zero dollars in sales so it really requires more of a granular pro ch- in building out of following over on facebook. Maybe even importing your email list and building a look alike audience and then re marketing re targeting that audience and sending them over to your book offers. There's quite a few people that are just. It's in their wheelhouse. More dawson for instance. The of the podcast self publishing formula. He actually you know has an entire course based on it Brian cohen has Course on amazon ads and i believe covers facebook ads. It could be wrong. Sorry bron brian. If i'm completely wrong on this one but You know if you're willing to kind of put in the hours and learn just a little bit invest into this facebook can and will pay you back. I know that my wife dabbles a little bit of facebook ads and has had some pretty good results from it. Good friend of mine and One of the co owners of romance publishing academy jacob rothenberg swears by facebook ads. So if you really just take time to try to learn learn from somebody who's actually just excelling at it then you'll probably do really really good burnin right through these things. Today's podcast my ended up being little shorter than usual. But that's okay number. Four book bob. Alright so book bob. I'm going to tell you this. That book bob is really still the just the holy grail of the advertising because of how large their email list is i mean they have a deep email list segmented out to various knee. Shes and it's very active. There's two different types of ways you can use book bob. One is the feature deal. That is actually the holy grail. If you can land a featured deal on book bob you got it. Made good luck getting approved because they won't take just any old book And you also have to probably consider using for instance katie p select for doing a free book promotion or even say for instance a kindle countdown deal in order to land that particular book. Bub -til the feature deals. I've heard nothing but good things about them. In fact actually about four. Five years ago i had interviewed two different authors. Who would use book bob at saw amazing results from using book bob fair warning though it is not cheap. We're talking starting out at about three hundred bucks going greater than that but they drive so much traffic over towards your book and get so many sales that it ends up paying for itself of only heard few very few exceptions to the rule of the feature deal going south not working out so well But usually whenever. I heard that i would look over at the book and i would see some things. That were fundamentally wrong. So always like scratching my head going. Why did they get accepted for a deal and sometimes they say it's all about timing when it comes to getting the feature deal now. There's one area that you can use. You can't get the feature deal have not utilized this yet but david goggin actually swears by getting the paper the pay per click campaigns easy for me to say The pay per click campaigns are just a way to just advertise your book through their gigantic network So if you really want to find out more details about that. I would recommend go. Look up david. Gagarin's book over on amazon where he talks to talks about book bob ads for authors and number five before i do get into that number five area stick around samarium because give you some realistic tips especially if you are working on a fixed budget and you can't quite risk as much as number five amazon advertising all right i've i've been bullish about them for the past few years now and i still continue to see great value in amazon advertising and now more than ever. They're open up to numerous regions everywhere from the us uk to germany to australia. To canada is so much in so many markets that you can be able to market your book. The amazon advertising. It's just a dead simple solution here. Folks it's the lowest barrier of entry and the warmest august because you can try to market your book off of amazon or away from your website but ultimately someone on facebook sees your ad. it's a cold audience. Someone sees your ad on youtube cold audience. Someone sees your add over an amazon. That's a warm audience. That means they're ready willing and able to spend a little bit of money to buy products they go to amazon to buy stuff or sometimes window shop nonetheless. The biggest tip. I can give to you when it comes to amazon. Advertising is start low. I mean embarrassingly. Low on your pay per click and your daily budget then scale slow. If you don't know how to amazon ads. I promise you you're not gonna learn it in the next thirty days. You're not gonna learn the next sixty days neck alert in the next ninety days. It's eight continually learning like this whole business of using amazon ads. You gotta be patient. You gotta sit down become student the game and understand how ads can function on amazon and benefit your books. We'll have future podcasts. Specifically devoted to this specific feature. I could probably spend the next two hours talking about amazon advertising. But just kinda save you some time. I'll just say this that start low scale slow in the next. I'd say is lockscreen. Ads are money pit. Just avoid them. Just avoid him. I you know i know there's gonna probably be some people that are probably throwing their arms up the large out your fantastic. No nope i even. As a kendall owner i get so many of these lockscreen ads. I am never interest in the end. The and the books that are given to me is rural random. Who the stuff that they serve. I know i've looked at my wife's you know kendall and i'll see someone like what is this. She got like pitched joel. Osteen like death. Not even her thing i'm like. Why is that other name on my kindle is is the romance like skip lockscreen ads. They're just trashing my opinion until they can actually get something. That's a bit more targeted and more refined mix zero zero sense to us it. Just go with the sponsored ads or the sponsored brand ads. They more recently rolled out.

We're going to announce it over on youtube. My final tip when it comes to paid advertising. There's no silver bullet. There's no specific way. No one size fits all. That's going to work okay. What can work for me. I not work for you. But here's the thing that you need to get good on nothing. Not any one element is going to get you. instant success. The few people that have had that happen or the unicorns of the business vast majority of that. Listen to this. Podcast probably aren't in that little minority of people that are able to blow up overnight using paid advertising invest. Only what you can stand to lose and do it consistently. You can't expect to go and do book bub. Ads over the next thirty days and become an overnight success. You can't go and do amazon. Advertising for the next two weeks and expect to get twenty or thirty clicks get so many sales it takes time takes patience it takes consistency and you also need to be learning. You need to be flexible. You need to be self aware so that we can pay attention to some of the elements that are working for you and do more of that and see the things that aren't working for you and do less of that.

You can have your life three guests. And i'll give you a clue clue. Three yeses gorilla. They won't give it up on a clay they They're they're not an animal that people hold in huge affection. They're portrayed in animated film as being the bad jackson's. Yeah if you are on the right and you would just stay with your meeting. You mean what you say then. All the sudden you're dividing the country you're controversial but you're on the left you say you're a hero. You're inspirational your woke nuts. That is what. I take most issue with this presidency. Everything right no. Nobody does. But i do believe that he is genuine. I do believe he comes from a good intentions. I do believe he somebody that just stand up for what he believes in. That's why so many loved l. But it's so easy looking at where he's dividing the country within marxist the alignment is a dividing the country. Are you serious and again. I get it all the time to you. I'm controversial. I am shocked off. Its someone on the left and say defended the police in somehow. That gives them a round of applause. Come on out. I smoke pot without getting paranoid. That's an excellent question. And i get that a lot from people that you know are more or less our age and did it in high school did it in college and then now it's wait a minute with the folks that went on like i do one or two hit and i'm totally wasted or i don't feel right or i feel paranoid. Yeah and it. All depends the typical traditional terminology. Strains you you hear about sativa indica hybrid really the chemo vars because plants don't make a strain your urine. Microbiologist you know plant. Don't there's no strings. Implants bacteria viruses. Yes so these are chemo bars in. So if you genetically create a key more that has a good balance for good blend. More indica dominant than say a sativa dominant. Because a cheaper will stimulate. But it'll call people to feel a sense of paranoia. They get a sense of what's going on. You know someone's coming after me and it causes anxiety and does cause panic attacks. What's the secret Oh man there are so many secrets. I would say if you asked anybody else. That's in a business with me or or not said al sarah York seven days a week ryan york seven days a week You get up before everybody else. You go to bed after everybody else. And when everyone else is in the hamptons or at the beach you're in the city working and you're working on their business The power of follow up is really. I think probably the most boring answer. I can give you. That's the real secret. We have a system all three apps which is follow up. Follow through and follow back and i think if anybody can do that and stay on top of current business. They will you. You cannot fail as a real estate agent or salesperson. in general may nathan is a classic example. I've never seen anyone follow up the way he does. Because business will just come to you by default. Because you wouldn't catch that person in that moment when they realize they're thinking about real estates and they're not just gonna go online google someone or pick up the newspaper or talk to a friend because you're going to be right there waiting in finding that fine line and then i honestly the secret secret secret sauces. People hate being sold but they love shopping with friends. And if you everybody your friend in some way shape or form and they're gonna wanna go shopping with you to find their new home or do their new developments. You're not gonna feel like you're ever trying to sell them a fucking car. My belief is that. I've been a rich man. I've been a poor man. And i choose rich every fucking time and never looked back. Not they don't have problems when i'm rich. But money's an amazing problem solve our and look at it this way. I have been rich and in really really happy. I've been rich and i've been really really miserable. That's i've been poor and been really really miserable. But i've never once my fucking light important happy. I did this joke where you know. Sometimes you money will buy you a different kind of sad sad a one bedroom apartment. We gotta take the bus. It's not the same as sad on on a yacht in a beatha. Least you're dancing to the music and so there's no question. There's no question that money buys you the freedom money by you travel differently you save time a better view and i think people who have been poor. Charlie chaplin in his autobiography talks about this he. There's nothing good about poverty. It's humiliating yes dirty. And so a lot of what. This country is predicated on. Is the idea that you have the potential to get of your miserable circumstances. How many people you know that went from nothing to everything. It's a great american story. But now logan pause videos a number one training video and the world opening up a box of pokemon cards. Why because the demand is here when people make it cool logic. He another rapper.

I have two of those also so even the players themselves have their own multimillion dollar cards.

We always want feel out where the prospect thinks. This will cost play a little guessing game now knowing what you now know i tell you what jordan. I love for you to be mega dinner this evening. As a matter of fact if you're able to guess within five hundred dollars the total investment of the proposal. I have here to get your dream bathroom basement done. We'll take you out any five. Ninety s at los angeles area as well as mcdonald's or wendy's so we basically a little guessing game we get both husband and wife to guess. Would they think it will cost. When i was about thirteen or fourteen. He had read a little pamphlet. On bonding with your son okay. So the first thing he did is he told me about the birds and the bees which i hadn't he'd never given the talk lasted about thirty seconds birds and the bees. Okay second thing is. He sat me down in the living room and he went into got his revolver at eight inch smith and wesson loaded. He pulled the hammer back and he put it to my head. I can still close my eyes. I see the bullets in the chamber. Said we're gonna have a talk about drugs. Now danny okay. There's no cure for mother fucking drugs motherfucking bullet in your mother fucking head and i'll put it there. My mother standing offscreen over here screaming and yelling manny manny. You might pull the trigger by accident. There's no when i pull the trigger to blow his fucking brains that'll be on purpose. I never did drugs. So i think vine was smart in the sense. So if i'm thinking of myself as a business right i'm fine I'm like all right. There's a need for short form video content of inorganic platform with creators. So i'm going to build out easily slowly and just let it organically grow because there is a need for that so people are going to use it. It's great products so in developing that they were successful too because they sold vine to twitter so they were successful in building this platform and selling their products you know and then selling their brand right so they they did a great job with that but then you know twitter took over. They had it there and they didn't do much with it. You know but who knows. Maybe they just wanted it for their own. Ip and then they didn't really care about the platform quite a companies. You can't it's constantly watching it. And i mean things so fast now right unless you're constantly aware what's going on you basically get run over by someone else. Who is and you need. Somebody that whether you're running or you just don't have the time to. I'm sure like you know you have other things that you're doing and you just can't. There's no way you could physically be everything on running everything day today so it's getting to the right people. Yeah exactly and that's the hardest thing to find are the right people. I think you know but when you find them. It's just like you know worth the search. You talk about it in your book and you obviously talk about it in the movie that that you and your first employees. The first guy that was selling with you you would sell circles around everybody else and then you come back and listen to your salesforce and on all. It doesn't work and we go back to sell in the pennies. Whatever and you're i don't get it and you couldn't get it you would never get. You are natural at what you do write. Your brain is wired in such a way that you know whatever it is that you want you're gonna make it happen right. I'm wired the same way no matter how many times i've got knocked down. It's like okay. Fall down nine. Stand up ten. Here we go. I'm not done and the challenge for ninety nine point. Nine percent of the population is they're not wired that way they think that that feedback is trying to redirect them some other way and so they just let go of wanting this and so they get a car that gets them from point eight point. They don't need the rolls royce or the lamborghini or whatever it is they really wanted. They get a house that they can afford the mortgage not the house. They really want you see people that are successful highly successful business. People sales people entrepreneurs we don't ask. Can i afford that thing. We determine what we want based on what we want. Not what we think we can afford. We figure out how to afford the thing that we want. But then i also know that the one thing that the regulator ofcom here said you cannot talk about you cannot talk about one thing. The relation between five g and corona virus. You can talk about anything else you want. I also know that. In times of lockdown. They are building towers overnight. They are. They're going up in liverpool. Gone up in belfast. They're gonna birmingham. Some people are burning. I don't. I don't condone that. But there's just strange things happening here and so i'm trying to focus on the fact that i can't tell the truth and i think i'm paraphrasing george orwell. But he said in times of universal deceit telling. The truth is an active resistance. And that's what we're doing. That's the thing that bothers me more so I'm i'm looking at the five g thing almost like a symptom that something else bad is going on and i'm trying to get to the crux of that and not to do that. I'm pushing the envelope a little bit further. And that's what we're planning on doing on april twenty-sixth in if we get this thing off the ground to the most valuable lessons in my life. He gave me the only director. It wasn't billy wilder was Who was it. It was the guy who directed west side story. I mean the guy was like one hundred years old.

Do not take that job from him. Why why are you saying that he goes. You will be fired. I said why because you're not meant to be someone's assistant is what you're director. So what what.

You're going to get fired. He knew me he knew i had. Add he knew. It was in focused except on telling stories. So i go see brian flats la. I remember in his office in beverly hills. The coat from backdraft was on the door with the hat. Like it was on the on the back. Door i company goes brent man. I'd like you so much i do. I think you're so smart. And i know you went to film school. Anthem is gonna give me an opportunity directed episodes of television or something he goes. I wanna teach you the business.

Just kind of like looked at him. Kind of like trying to keep my smile. He says i'm gonna pay twenty one thousand dollars a year and it was a lot of money from me. Twenty one thousand dollars a year. I said wow. I said i'm really appreciative. I'm really grateful. But i'm a director. He's like okay. I'm going to pay twenty two thousand dollars a year as a university. And i'm like. I'm like opium like ron howard. I'm like your. I'm i'm a film director like i'm gonna pay twenty three thousand dollars a year. I got up to twenty nine thousand. I kept telling him no. You don't understand. I'm not i'm not as an assistant director and also what my professor told me to not take the job said. Do not take the job under any so i went in there knowing. I wasn't gonna take it but i want to hear what he had to say. And he said okay and it wasn't until recently when we did tower highs together that i noticed that he's a button under his door in a on on under the table that calls in the assistant and the assistant comes and goes brian. Your next meeting so it was like seven minutes and it was like the meeting was over. She was like brian. Okay bradwell great seeing you. That was it that was my chance and it was gone right there and as i go to the door i think there's another button that just slams the door and i stop it and i know okay if you pick somebody gotta do it in one line. I said my friend has an idea to do a black version of the nutty professor. He's like oh. Come on in. And i i take that step and i watched what a producer did in front of my eyes. He said who made that movie. I said jerry. Lewis demi jerry lewis on the phone as easy as that jerry brian grazer. Oh hey brian. I'd love to get the rights to on the rights. Yeah i owned the rights to all my movies alright. Can we send over a proposal shirt. Thank spread. I got zero zero and i was like no. I didn't i don't know what to ask for it. It was like i gave me idea right. It wasn't that he's trying to stiff. Me was just like okay. I said it was my friends idea anyway by the time. They're making nutty professor two. He's asking me to direct the movie. You can make sub ten million bucks a year but if you want to have real revenue eight takes. They say it takes a village to raise a child at data village to build a business either from scratch or what. We're doing restoration of older brands. I it's a. It's who can build an army itell- entrepreneurs you've got to be a you. Think like a general. There's a good book. I just read on white eisenhower. One of the great he he led the day arguably one world war two as the supreme commander of the united forces and he was back in a tent. Planning in fact one of the people said one of the criticisms against eisenhower was that he wasn't a battle field general but he had patton and he had montgomery and he had these guys who were able to go out in the field. So he didn't do it and i think that it's easy to get too much in the weeds and forget that i think people disagree that most money's made at the strategic level back in the tent way behind. That's where the wars one. And that's where the money's made in business right. This next section here is about business and making lots of money. Here's the deal.

$165K a week for COVID analysis? Thats how much WA paid a global consulting firm
"A longtime rule in our states race to combat the pandemic has gone out the window state agencies canal sign. No bid contracts with vendors, if the work is related to the COVID. Nineteen response and one beneficiary of this emergency policy, a high price global consulting firm, but was it money? Well, spent kyw's Austin Jenkins has more on this collaboration with the Seattle. Times on May first. Washington governor Jay Inslee announced his plan to begin reopening the. The state, it had been six weeks since he ordered people to stay home today, please to say that we are starting our careful phased science and data driven process to reopen Washington's economy. In that news conference, NC highlighted a chart from a local disease modeling group out of Bellevue. It showed the projected covert infection rate for King County. But soon, the governor was getting data from another source when he didn't advertise in his public appearances. From boardrooms to the White, house and beyond McKenzie's influence in business. Virtually unparalleled Mackenzie is McKinsey and Company and nearly one hundred year old consulting behemoth sometimes known simply as the firm as the coronavirus crisis swept the nation and the world McKinsey was one of a number of firms that came knocking on Washington's door. Sherry Sawyer is a senior policy adviser to inslee. McKenzie's uniqueness to all the other offers we were getting is they already had a robust colon health tool that tool offered a county by county, look at the impacts of the pandemic, not just on people's health, but on the economy and on vulnerable populations, for instance, if consumer spending dropped by more than fifteen percent in. In a particular county that would get flagged. So would a dramatic increase in drug overdoses or suicide attempts? So Washington signed up for Mackenzie's governor's decision support tool and access to a full time team of four consultants, but it didn't come cheap. The cost was one hundred and sixty, five, thousand dollars a week, and that was a discounted government rate. The costs are still enormous. This is an McDougal journalist who's written about Mackenzie for the investigative news site PROPUBLICA. He estimates public sector spending, McKenzie's covert related services already tops a hundred million dollars, but McDougal, questions, what value taxpayers are getting in return especially given the high cost, take the governor's decision tool. It's not clear to me. Why Mackenzie is any better doing that it's fairly simple task sharing data and and connecting it than anybody else's in a statement. A Mackenzie spokesperson said, the company is proud of the work. It's done for the public sector during the pandemic inside office used McKenzie's tool for eight weeks. But did not renew the service, still the governor's chief of Staff David. Postman. Postman says the data proved useful and that hiring McKinsey was part of inside his all in approach to the crisis. I will say that we've been aggressive Ben inviting this virus in that has led us to do some different sorts of things. You know we we just were willing to try some things. Federal Cares Act dollars will pay for Mackenzie services but. But the idea of a lucrative, no bid contract with a multibillion dollar firm concerns state Senator John Bron. He's the ranking. Republican on the Senate budget. Committee sounds to me like once again because the high end high tech folks of the world are making out like bandits during this pandemic while folks that are on the margins are paying the price, it's not just the governor's office since the start of the pandemic here Mackenzie his inked to other six-figure week contracts one with the state's Medicaid program the other with the Employment Security Department to help it respond to massive fraud in the unemployment insurance system. In each of these cases, the contracts were signed without a competitive bidding process. I'm Austin Jenkins in Olympia.
Wirecard's Missing $2 Billion
"Around the world big tech has been booming. There's Alibaba in China flip. Cart in India route ten in Japan and in Germany there was wire card. Inside Germany wildcard was seen as an absolute start our colleague Paul Davies covers. I mean Europe isn't exactly overflowing with big technology companies, and why called was lauded as one of the best success stories. Why are card is a payments company? It works in the background of millions of credit card transactions all over the world. It was successful enough to earn a place in Germany's DAX thirty, the country's premier stock index, and at one point it was worth more than Deutsche Bank. And then suddenly last Thursday wire cards star fell quick and heart. Walk released a statement that said it's auditors have been unable to confirm the existence of two billion dollars worth of cash, and that was a real shock. Two billion dollars is a lot of money. It's another money. It's equivalent to all of its profits over a decade that went missing. Yeah. That's missing. Welcome to the journal our show about money, business and power I'm Caitlyn. Baugh, it's Thursday June twenty-fifth. Coming up on the show, the mystery behind wire cards missing two billion dollars, and how one of Europe's top tech companies imploded. This season on. Where should we begin? The freedom isn't the view and pursue others. It's to hold your hand while I experience more. Guess there's a lot of questions that come with it. Do! You need me to watch the kids while you go out the other guys. Where should we begin returns? June twenty fished. Follow and listen for free on spotify. Inside Germany wire card was seen as a big tech success and its leader Marcus Braun seemed to fit the mold of the big tech CEO. In recent years, heat adopted that black turtlenecks style of Steve Jobs and he was a frequent speaker at conferences and events. Your hair. Chai person by that. Try to speak. Allow I think he was seen as kind of visionary leader. He was seeing somebody who would be able to stop this company from very small origins into attacks thirty institution. But wire cards business wasn't exactly sexy apples. Bron wasn't selling iphones wire cards. Business was payments. It's really a very boring thing. You know you don't know these companies as a consumer, you might occasionally noticed logo on a payment seven Oh. You probably don't. Payment processing might be a little boring, but it's a crucial part of our economic infrastructure. Pretty much anytime. You buy something with a card wire card or a payments company like it is involved. Essentially what happens, is you hand over your car details to a shop for some business online? Then there is a payments company which collects those details and then deals with all of the communication between Your Bank. The merchants bank the pipe work through which all of this stuff is done. And don't notice any of this, and that's what the payment company does. It just takes your details. An insurance that money goes from your bank accounts to create some new digits in the bank account of the person or the company is telling you whatever you're buying. That's kind of. For nearly two decades wire card has been doing this behind. The scenes work growing into a twenty four billion dollar company at its peak. One of the ways wire card grew so fast around the world was by working with third party. Companies so say wire card wanted to set up shop in a new country, but it didn't have the right licenses to operate there. It would set up a partnership with a third party business, which had those licenses to do that payment processing work there. Wire Card had three of these third party partners that was one in Dubai that was one in Singapore and there was one based in the Philippines and these companies grew contributes a very large of revenue and the vast majority of profits in recent years. These third parties would later turn out to be big players in the mystery of wire cards missing two billion dollars. But years before that shoe dropped wire card was already under fire for its business by some investors who were shortsellers. shortsellers make money by betting against companies. They can do this quietly or loudly. By publishing detailed reports to try to convince other investors that a company has a fundamental flaw. Some of wire cards shortsellers were that loud kind. There was an investor in Australia who for about a decade claimed that wire card had. Inflated its business through some acquisitions. And then in two thousand sixteen short-selling operation called the Tara. Research and investigations made an even bolder claim. Zitar put out a report accusing wire card of facilitating payments on the grey market for things like gambling. People weren't really allowed to do a lot of gambling the incident. In the US and what's Atara thought they'd worked out. Is that walkout was one of the leading processes of payments for gambling? And when the US cracks down on that and close down online poker sites, and this sort of thing, suddenly, a whole load of wildcards profits ought to have disappeared, was the theory and the star reports and it distance. Wire Card kept reporting big prophets. Zitar is claim. was that wire card was plugging the revenue whole left after the gambling crackdown by fabricating fake business through its third parties. The idea is of this report was that they then began a long history of concocting sales and earnings, essentially to cover up for the fact that most of their original business with no longer doable was no longer viable. How did card respond to that report and to the allegations from the Australian investor? Why is always done is responds pretty aggressively to people who criticize it with these Atallah report in two thousand and sixteen. Why Card accused them of liable of making stuff up of defaming the company and very quickly, the local regulator in Germany the financial regulator Baffin in came in on why? Side essentially. An investigation into the shortsellers into market manipulation by them, and pursued them rather than looking at the company, but even with Germany's financial regulator boffin at its side. The accusations against wildcard didn't let up last year. The Financial Times a story about a whistle blower who allege some of wire cards business handled through its Singapore office was faked. With accusations piling up wire card was under increasing pressure to clear its name. So last year, the company called in an independent auditor kpmg to take a look at its books. On a call last November co Marcus Braun assured investors. They had nothing to worry about. We totally confirmed today that these allegations are unfounded. Their revenue recognition was completely in line with the reporting and. Fully authentic. But in April when KPMG released its report, looking into wire cards books, it was full of questions. KPMG complained that the company has cooperated as much as it should. The documents were delivered late on not toll, or they didn't get the originals of documents, and they also complained that the third party businesses are the heart. Some of the questions about its business hadn't raced to tool. And then they also raised for the first time that they couldn't fully identify. What's at that point was about a billion euros of. Cash. And that was a bit alarm bell so rather than clear the company's name. This KPMG report raised more questions than it answered and said it couldn't find a billion euros. Exactly yeah. How did that go down? So the shares tumbled, lots of people were quite shocked by the company still stuck to its guns and said look. You know there's no conclusive evidence of any wrongdoing here. Will shortly publish our full year results and we'll tell you. How great was still growing. Wire Card was preparing to wow investors again with yet another years worth of stellar financial results instead investors were in for a big surprise. That's after the break. Join WSJ for a free conversation on July nights about the future of the American dream, featuring Roz chatty professor of economics at Harvard University Register at future of DOT. WSJ DOT COM. welcome back. Last week was the real bombshell wire card was set to release its full annual report for twenty nineteen. It was juice report on Thursday. And what happened was instead of repulsing on Thursday. We rule sat there, waiting for the numbers to come out, and instead came wire cards jaw, dropping revelation. It's auditors couldn't find two billion dollars of the company's money. What did you think when you heard that? Okay Let me, try and give you a clean version of thought. So I thought was I had imagined fats had been happening for so long would happen. The results would come outs. We'd still get nuances and we'd all be there scratching our heads, and still trying to work out what the hell of a story was really about. In fact, it was suddenly apparent that this was about. Probably unravel dramatically. And, it did unravel within a day of wire cards. Shocking announcement co Marcus Bron was out and more details started to emerge about the two billion dollars wire cards. Auditors couldn't find. Those details would raise even more questions. Before the two billion dollars went missing, wildcard had claimed the money was sitting. An escrow accounts the reason it had that money was for refunds. If customers came to wire cards third party partners saying they needed a refund. Wire card wanted its partners to have the money close at hand. This explanation. That wire card was holding two billion dollars in escrow. For the chance of refunds did that story make sense to you? Is kind of one of those things that you you sort of breed and a kind of takes you a while to realize how strange it sounds I mean when you spend a lot of time reading the accounts and the releases and the statements of financial companies and talking bankers, and so on about what they do, and how it works, and why I've been doing this for twenty years, and it still world a very strange and unusual languages, not words that we use every day you know, whereas like escrow collateral trustee. They're not things that you throw into ordinary conversation, and sometimes it can take a while for your brains are kind of clicked into gear and think. Hang on just doesn't really make a lot of sense. The idea that wire card would need two billion dollars. The amount of its total profits over a decade to cover some refunds Paul couldn't figure that one out. I have no idea person. Y. You would need to keep almost all the money. You've earned from some business in an escrow account. In case what everything you've ever done needs to be refunded Mongo. It doesn't make any sense. And now it turned out. The money wasn't even there maybe never had been. What's wire cards saying now about the two billion dollars. Walkout of saying now is that the money probably doesn't exist at all, and they're unsure if it ever did and what they're also saying is that they are having to reexamine in detail whether these party businesses really ever any work on behalf of wildcards at all. Since the two billion dollar bombshell wire cards top leadership has been pushed out. The company brought in an interim CEO. Who now has to figure out what happened? So it seems like there are still a lot of question marks about what exactly was going on wire card. What are some of the possibilities that have been raised? So they are that? Ah, vast amount of this business is completely always was utterly fictitious. It never happens. The whole thing. Was a scam perpetrated on shareholders and lenders effectively. Another possibility is that. Maybe some of this business was done or a lot of it was done, but really it was dull business. It was gray market business, and it was done by people who weren't really acting on behalf of wildcards and walk out. Never saw any profits from. And then there's the explanation from. The former CEO that wire card itself had been duped. All of this business was totally normal and was and money was paid to wildcard into these escrow accounts, but some person somewhere a relatively recent date kind of made off with that money. Somehow so I guess there's three potential possibilities in that sense. Yeah, we don't yet know what the answer is. If this plays out to be. A fraud. How big is this fraud potentially in the annals of fraud? And how does something this big happen? You know this feels I. Mean we don't know the scale of the losses yet? But this feels like a kind of Enron type thing. In terms of the ball, who should have been paying more attention should be in charge of this. I mean obviously the local regulator and the local prosecutors. The president of our in the head of the regulator has said this week that they did make mistakes. He's called this episode and absolute disaster. But also I think one of the bigger lessons that we're going to have to draw from. This is globally. The payments industry is not really monitored in perhaps the way it should be. I think monitoring the payment processes would be a great first step to prevent this sort of thing happening again. On Monday German law enforcement arrested former wire cards CEO Marcus, Brown. Prosecutors are accusing him of artificially inflating wildcard sales. Braun has repeatedly denied wrongdoing. Also on Monday, are card said that may be none of its third party. Business ever existed. Today, the company filed for the German equivalent of bankruptcy. That's all for today.

186: Basic Human Interaction - Dale Dupree
"<music> you're listening to the daily sales tips podcast. I'm your host Scott Ingram for those of you who've been following along today marks the first day of my vacation at thanks to James Muir Jason Bay Jeff Pejic Dale Do Pre Jack Wilson Chris Aureliano and Andy Rae sick. The show will continue uninterrupted while I'm out today's tip comes in the form of a clip from part two of my very long but very valuable interview I did with Dale Do pre-obama. Maceo success stories podcast. This part clocked in at just under two hours so there's tons more where this came from if you enjoy it here's the clip it's basic human interaction. I talked two people so like anybody listening right now. I want you to go to your emails that you send out for coal prospecting that you keep wondering yourself like man. What am I doing wrong or you know? Could I do better you know I'm only getting a twenty percent open rate or whatever it is. I want you to go and read those emails males. I want you to read them out. Loud and I want you to read them out aloud to like your mom or your dad or someone that loves you so they can break it to you a lot easier than than somebody that you don't like when they tell you that honey. Nobody talks like that in real life you know when I look at. That sometimes when I look at wraps emails and I was guilty of this at an early stage in my career that you know the words we use are obnoxious. You know like we try to sound like I don't know these scholars inside of the industry right like you know all of a sudden you're talking to archimedes that you know the copier sales rep out of nowhere and to me it just that make sales complicated sit we over complicate sales when you call someone cold and you ask them for a minute to tell them why uncalled. They're gonNA probably saying no because you're a stranger. That is the basics of human interaction so my approach starts there. Is that like I'm proactive in my sales walk where I say to myself. itself what is normal about what I'm about to do and what is not normal so that I can tell my prospect before I started pitching or even get the conversation going that. Hey Look I know which you're expecting out of this. This call and I don't like it either so let's try something different right so I just like the approach again like being transparent and that process and not like the surface level transparency that a lot of people talk about like the authentic leadership behind what transparency means. Like being a leader day in and day out as a salesperson and the sales professionals extremely important it ties back the servant leadership as well to which carries a lot of great principles that that sales people need like empathy and I think about all those things when I write in an email like have some empathy when you write an email right you will literally the opposite of the way that you sound right now. Most likely and people will look at it and go. I'm interested Josh who writes great sales emails Josh Bron. I met Josh brand not too long ago. Maybe about a year or so ago and I've always been interested in ham sales DNA. He's a great dude. His cold emails are fire right and the thing is is that he writes emails to people the way that he would want them to. You've written to him by again. The principle of basic human interaction matching and mirroring right all these these very simple psychological effects that we that we work on I took Spanish I took Sandler sales training and I learned the Challenger Sale L. and I mean I've I've done a ton of different sales trainings and gone through processes in my early stages of my career and even over the years just to dabble in it but I'll tell you that every time that what I see what kind of as a climax to my a statement what what I get out of that everything we tried to make everything a move and technique at a tactic but people just want to be treated like a human freaking Bane as always you'll find links to everything Dale do pre related. Well maybe not everything but.
