A Master Class in Resilience With George Mumford

"George. Nice to see you. Too, we were just chatting that the last time we saw each other was over Indian food and right before the world fell apart in the winter So I'm I'm curious I WANNA, ask you a question I've been asking a lot of people recently, but I don't mean it in a perfunctory way in a real way I want to hear the answer which is, how are you so much has happened since I last saw you. including the pandemic, and of course, the all of the tumult following the killing of George Floyd. So I just want to check in and get a sense of how you're. I'm really good actually A. I'm feeling great. And I say that. In. Spite of everything that's going on I. Feel Really. Really. Really. Great. And I am. Able as I like to say, hold the heard in generate the hope. So may would feel things. So few things have happened the last time. I saw you a I think it was after Kobe Bryant had died so I had that was like I say the last Sunday in January. And then the next week, one of my highest grew friends passed away during the week after that, my sister passed away. So I've been dealing with a lot of that even before the covert thing hit. But what are the things did I noticed in very? Hesitant to share with people was that even though those things happen, there was A. I was experiencing piece really didn't get touched by those things. And I and you know and I had done I mean just a little self disclosure. I knew my mother passed away. It would be very challenging because of when I was living at Cambridge insight meditation center. In eighty nine, different six years it was November, twenty, second nineteen, eighty, nine, I started dealing with the what they call a deaf awareness meditation practice. What you start the reflect darn. If I did that we're all going to die We don't give beyond death in that sort of thing because I knew when my mother passed, it was going to be really challenging. and. She didn't pass into two thousand and one. So I had a little time. To work on like twelve years. And I think that I continue to work on that and I think it. Manifested in two thousand twenty. where I could see the fruits of the practice. So a lot of times you do these practices are you develop these ways of being? and. You're not really sure. I'm not really sure how it's going to hold up when when the crab is fan. So. You said a lot there. I just want to point one thing out and then didn't follow up on a couple things you said. A lot of people were upset when Kobe Bryant. Passed away in the helicopter crash. The vast majority of people were simply fans. You actually knew him and taught him how to meditate. So it was a different. I. Just want to highlight that that was personal for you. Not just something that happened as a fan. Yes. Yes. It was very personal for me because we're really close. I get the work with him I work with the Lakers, but also I've had in just be when I was writing my book. he had called me and the asked me to come up. To Newport. Beach way lived and hang out for a couple of days because he wanted to start working. He was still it was in the next to last season in the league, but he was about ready to retire. So I got out and I got the hang out with him a little bit and talk about things. And be interacting with him in his own base where he didn't have bodyguards and wasn't a crowd was just he and I and the people I work with but Annette on Tribu stored with the Lakers. So he asked me so I asked he got the helicopter with him and to bail up to L. A. because he had a game. So really close in when he when I heard about his death I was actually at the University of Richmond watching the women's basketball games when I got the text. Analytics felt like this is a bad joke in this state right and. So that's how I found out about it and it was it was pretty devastating in that same time. I feel like I could continue to do what I needed to do. Create space for that, hurt. And generate dope and first thing I said was I hope his family's not with them. And then I found out his daughter seven other souls were a helicopter.

20 Minutes With The Founder of Hyperice

"Any athlete understands recovery is essential an arguably just as important as the workload itself to achieve peak performance in recent years even among amateur athletes, we've seen a growth and acceptance to what's the necessity of taking the time to really focus on recovery. But what has actually entail for one year muscles require time rest and particularly plenty of sleet repair and grow, but taking the time for active recovery such as stretching. And Foam Rolling Yoga also play a large role in keeping the blood flowing and helping rebuild from intense physical activity. You're listening to twenty minutes fitness and I'm your host Martin caster twenty minutes fit is partly powered by shape scaled up and three d body scan that visualizes your body composition photo realistic three in recent years technology has rudy started to supercharge the fear of active recovery there methods such as icing cryotherapy. Percussion therapy also commonly referred to as massage guns, compression therapy. All the way to infrared sauna have been long used by various. Bro Athletes for recovery for today's show, we've invited highs founder and CEO. Anthony, cats hi FIS has been one of the leaders in the field is known for its iconic products such as the hype vote massage gone the Viper vibrating foam roller as well as the compression sleeves their products have. been used early on by NBA stop there such as Lebron James and the late Kobe. Bryant and today there aren't they use by pros and all the major us. Leaks the English premier league as well as Olympic athletes. We chat more about how he first got started with icebox neoprene and also take a deeper dive into the science and also some of the best practices behind some of these recovery methods and devices. Hi Anthony I'm excited to have you on the show today. Can you tell us a little bit more about yourself to kick things off? Yeah. So my name's anthony cats on founder pipe price. I founded the company about ten years ago it started out really just as an arm project like I was before this I worked in education was a high school teacher I was married to professional. Athletes and I was still really active and I still play sports and was sort of looking for ways to improve my body and sort of slow the aging process and I started my by started kinda get more soar after do things and you kind of start to see like the wear and tear you know grown up in the in the Dark Ages fitness in the ninety S. People used to basically do bodybuilding it wasn't very functional and that control my body in in. So I start looking at like, what would it winter pro athletes doing? You know because obviously they put the biggest premium on. Their bodies and sort of the new kind of things if there was anything new that they were doing that I can adopt and when I did sort of the research on, it was funny like the word recovery didn't really even a quiet sports like that. We use it now and there's a category now but they're back then. You know recovery meant like alcohol recovery or something you know. It didn't mean the same and so the industry was really dominated by like sort of these like medical device companies that would make products that would live in athletic training room for in professional sports and mostly what guys were doing for like you know just. To recover faster faster was was ice was ice tubs. Getting, getting a cold tubs and then, and then they were icing their joints and then if you getting a massage in athletes paper massage and stuff, and that was kind of that was kind of what the recovery will look like in two, thousand ten and so I figured okay well, you know if you can't really market a cold tub but athletes are icing their joints every day and they were doing it with plastic bags and ace route or Fight in every single day. Yeah. It's really wasteful and just like you know it's just not really convenient leaks in you know Dallas is kind of what they were doing. So it Kinda struck me and around this time two, thousand ten. So beats by DRE was relatively new. You know they debuted at the two thousand, eight Olympics and the Osa basketball guys were wearing them kind of adopted this idea that you if someone wearing something right and you know if I could make something that was good enough for like pro athletes to wear that people would see it on them and because it's on their body because it would be like wearing potentially like wearing them, you know on the sidelines or Photos, in your starting, it was Kinda before instagram. So it wasn't really the access to like the behind the scenes of what these guys do is not really the same level of now because I feel now we have a much better window into what what sort of the athletes are famous people do in their you know when the camera's not on. This kind of struck me. If there was a documentary called the last dance about Michael Jordan and it was showing how different famous then where he was the most famous person in the world and he'd get off the team bus and they would just be like a thousand people waiting at the hotel just like watch him walk in the door and we don't need to do that anymore because now everyone has we see what people do in the cameras. And we have twitter, right? Yeah and so people and and then there's way more content right? So there's just way more content of like, okay. What is sort of what is an athlete? Do? They're not court in got used to be pretty mysterious people in an intriguing so I figured that if I could make an icing product because athletes have to is every day people see maybe what sort of kind of catch on A in obviously not a school would beat because it's music that's universal but I still felt like young athletes might adopt it. So I had the idea to make like a really cool looking is compression device, and so I started researching therapy. The. Compression was import element of it and I had. A friend of mine who's a college basketball coach was regularly working out with Kobe Bryant and in Kobe was known as the biggest like that. He he is more than anybody and there was articles well-documented about how he really took care of his body. So I thought if I could make a prototype and I could show it to him and maybe you know maybe get into weirder sort of my thinking and I showed it to them I. so I literally was cutting up wetsuits and going into like wetsuit factory's GonNa live in a beach community southern California. So like there's some of the old Lexi factories that are still around back then so I was kinda compression sleeves and then taking ice bags from like you know from like rite aid or whatever, and and and just kind of like putting them together these compression sleeves. Trying to make something and you know he was really receptive to the idea that there could be a product that would make more efficient and it would actually look not just be so wasteful. So I a couple times in he kind of gave me some really good criticism that was constructive and what I realized like this can't be an art project like this is not how businesses have to like if I'm. GonNa do what I gotta do it. Right. So I gotta go get like. So I was calling manufacturing companies and it was during the recession and people weren't really interested in talking about no experience at all and just sort of this but one company believed like, okay. I kind of had proved that I was like interacting with Koby in the disciplinary doing for him and they kind of just took a flyer on. Maybe we'll try helping sort of developed sort of come the extra separable and so took about a year I. Got I, finally convinced him to do it. We took about a year to kind of develop the product properly I had the idea to put an air release valve at is bag because when ice melts, it creates like air pocket in compression doesn't work because it blocks a compression. So if You have a button that releases the air. The compression always makes contact with the ice and then you get your eyes compression therapy and that's that's the whole idea behind it was that I would watch guys ice and then I would see these like there's a big air bubbles forum. It's like because the heat from your body is exchanging with the ice and then that creates natural gas, which is A. Form of like air and

That's Marcus Johnson here with us on the Zach Yelp show. Marcus appreciate the time How you doing? I'm doing bills. Everything is no good. All can play good benefits in basketball family from your lips to God's ears. Can't wait to see what's gonna happen in the N B. A bubble. I saw video back in February, You were wearing a Kobe Bryant jersey and you actually threw it down in your road. I'm still dunking at 64 years old. Have you been dunking at all during the pandemic? Or was that a one time thing at 64 district Cream donuts, Bad eye. You must have been nervous, right? Well, every year on my birthday, I do a dung just to see if I could still do it. I didn't plan on doing it this year. Just chill out at my son's a SIA. All over social media. They have got to do it contingent to the one in Sydney one in with that inside, And so, of course, I did a couple of warm up to feel pretty good and And we decided absent phone brought up two tackles. Omar, you know, taco fallen. Whoever jumped over him, Aaron Gordon. Whoever dumped over way last year Next year I'll be 65. That's the official retirement age. I've been retired. I'm Travis. You have to do one more 65 years old. I gotta pay the bed after that. I don't blame you. I don't. I can't even dunk right now. I can't imagine being able to dunk when you're in your sixties. Marcus Johnson here with us on the show. When we look at this MBA restart. We know that the Bucks are the best team in the league. From a record standpoint right now they're going to be the number one seed in the Eastern Conference. The's eight games inside of the bubble. What do you look for out of them where they could really ease themselves back into playing shape? The annex a great question. I was just kind of pondering that looking at the books. Play that scrimmage against neworleans the other night and You know, I just don't think that teams should put too much into the eight. Feeding games. It's a gradual buildup. You want to be planned your best basketball. Obviously when, when the playoffs start. This is such a weird. Praise the different type of experiment. Probably guys. And so, um, you know, see positives from the brother. I've seen not good things about in terms of Kind of fighting since, um, some difficulties against the product in here tonight, but, you know the season games Because boom Jose lost compete. He's gonna want these guys to come out and and just so effort show competitive competitiveness from Paris. But I'm not sure about the ones. The won and lost record is important. At this stage of the game. It's all about kind of a slow, gradual buildup. I've been exploding wants to play all secure here. When you look at the team from last year to this year. What do you see is the biggest difference as they even got better from what they were last year, which was impressive. Well, I mean, ways that it rest values that they're so what he has done that He's given Chris Middleton a breather at defense. Can't Chris I was just looking up Christian defensive record 107th overall, 22nd ranked small forward LeBron and collide As I said at the top. But Chris doesn't have to get all that energy trying to beat this Great three and the win. Clare and I could focus on his office and I was a result becomes one of seven or eight guys who was Trying to suit you both 20% from the three point line, stick to the set plus from the field and monitor it from the people that I think a 20 point today. Yes, I think that's direct benefit to Chris Middleton. Eric Bledsoe also, let's not forget him, Master. He struggle big time last couple of years in the playoffs and honestly, stuff a big farm of the playoffs. Uh, this year, he seemed to be a lot more comfortable in his basketball scared now. It is kind of getting a late start based on tested positive and them in quarantine and all that stuff. How quickly he could kind of get back into a rhythm and flow going to be a big difference. But today I think this team has gotten even better, but local tradition of Robin Has really been a great great move. But John forced our president breaking Robin Lopez, and now we've got two bent beak gets standings and leave so I think the defense has been even better than the great detective team from last season. Marcus Johnson here with us it Zaki help show on CBS Sports radio doing a little bubble breakdown on the Milwaukee butts nationally. The big question about Chris Middleton is. Can the Bucks win it all with him? Be in the Bucks. Second best player. He's a two time All Star. Give me the local feel on that. Our people still concerned locally about Middleton be in that number to peace and winning the championship this year. Right here is where you go. I could go to a barber shop in the hold of the brothers give Ah, little about depended on Chris have the huge games but In terms of inside basketball people, people that have watched Chris closely like myself. I really believe that Chris, it's all about his confident being an all Star to the second consecutive D up really? Helps his belief in himself as being one of the elite players in the league and kept in one of the shooters in the league. And you couple that with the fact that he comes back, he's getting guns for arms and get this definition I've never seen before. His body status. Probably way dog looks really good, really in great shape of the Kalpoe talked about his explosion and bounciness coming back after the four months off was really, really surprised. So he's really putting the work that during this time off to come back and make himself I've been so on. But with president mentally I think that way you get tomato last year, the average with just 14 points in the field, and he left. How Laurie, pending for a big cheque of those minutes in that six game lost to the crap. You have to be enough to love. So you've got a lot to prove, but I think Based on what I'm looking at changes of his body where he is physically brave is right. But I think he's ready to make that statement. When I look at the Eastern Conference, I really do fully expect Milwaukee. To get to the finals. They were in that one seed spot last year did not get there When you look at the Eastern Conference this year, who's the biggest challenger for the Bucks when the season resumes tomorrow night? It's really interesting. You get him some. I think three really legitimate. Even the Miami that mix also, you can't count out exposure and then the butler as your lead gap, but I think there's still a little bit godly hero of none. And guys like that. And then he began by making just a little bit young and that, Betty, but I really believe that Celtics man. I mean, people talk about the Raptors, who I respect about. Nick Norris is a great coach. Brad Stevens was great, but one through four in terms of scoring and issues and problems. You know Jason Taylor planted Kemba Walker is the number one option. That's two through four group these guys to produce and I think about taking on like the game, and that's the most since that Golden State a couple of years ago, but most just like second most 1995 in terms of looking for and then when Gordon Hayward is your fourth option, going going home. What is your fourth option? And then we talk about a container my greatest been, but then this Dylan Brown watching his footwork. Watching the lip bruised stands the finishes in traffic. He's a guy that could be a real problem for team like the book had been. The wild card would be market smart. Distant Jabba, even though Marcus Smart Sixthree export out of 16 11 Marcus Smart office of players and we know how much she just underneath their skin. And so he's a guy that has given me honest as much trouble as anybody scoring effectively and officially against it, So I said that and then the two big catch I mean the pick and roll for five hours straight that Boston life's run. Those two guys found business cancer, pounded it inside a greatjob getting into the paint and score of them that I'm not gonna puke my shot and roll that movies have private medical himself. I really believe that Celtics to me that they're not deed. I think both those four score that they have been a lot of pressure on the Milwaukee ways that do the Middleton. To defend at a high level every night in order to be a minute in a series.

That was like significant for them. What would that be? The first one I shot like no other one shot, but. went to maybe as a kid well, that's a great question I would have to say a grew up. A mets fan I. also a Rangers Fan growing up. I remember distinctly go into a myths game with my dad. I probably was maybe seven or eight. And, we were sitting behind home plate at Shea Stadium frankly sort halfway up, maybe third deck or something in. A foul ball team our way straight back. Identity shoved me out of the way in cod with one round. Tremendous amount it's been going. You know I'll never forget that I'm glad you remind me of that. That was fifty something years ago. An amazing that's A. Great Memory have first game. Yeah, well, it's better than getting in the head with a puck. But it would. No it was, it was a great memory. I had that ball forever I. Don't know what happened to it. In various moves over the years on the hockey side remember going to see the Rangers play in back. In the day we used to Go the old Madison Square Garden. This is the garden that was up on Tenth Avenue. I believe before they built the new garden in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy one. And the old guard, and had these pillars that you know. The new garden had the suspended ceiling. We made it so revolutionary. The Old Guard was Lee elda auditorium in at these pillars came down, and they sold seats literally behind the pillars that would call obstructed view seats. Added stamped on the ticket obstructed view. And you, literally sitting behind the pillar, and that's where me, the kid with always stupid behind the pillar. Every single time by Dan we get the tickets were like fifty cents. So that's what my earliest memories ago to raise your AIDS, I went to I can't remember which was first where there was a rams game at the coliseum that was my first, or whether it was dodger game. Experienced that I, remember was just the noise of so many people. And just it's unlike any other feeling I ever had were have dislike. Thousands of thousands of people around you at the same time, and there's something that I think is. Very lowering about that whether you are a sports fan as Lords player in your case of a photographer and talked to me about the intoxication of just that feeling at that sound. And, what it does for you especially when you're out there virtually in the center of it, it's still funny and bringing this up because the last. Or so this is gonNA sound really weird, but I've had this crazy ringing in my ear might. Equally right, it never experience, so go to the doctor. Get a hearing test the whole thing that they do. It comes back I have like twenty percent hearing loss at the high frequency, not unusual for my age. The audiologist says Mrs Wonder What kind of let me ask you. What kind of work do you do? I said well sports photographer you in noisy environments. She says I said. When's the last time we were in one? Four months ago. Well the ever experiences when you're in a loud arena or stadium I should not consciously. She's a will. Maybe you haven't withdrawal surgical. Rain you this consciously? Hearing it because it was so used to hearing it for forty years, isn't that? It's so bizarre.

New Orleans musician offers kids trumpets for guns

"Now a story about a trumpeter who is hoping that music might help reduce gun violence. My name is Lamar Allen, trumpeter from New Orleans, Louisiana producers, songwriters, saying Last week, Alan learned of a shooting in his city. A nine year old boy, Devante Bryant was killed. I have a nine year old son. So for me, it just hit me different, you know. He wanted to find a way to get guns out of the hands of kids. Has trump is laying around and I know for me that Trump has saved me. So he posted on social media and said to all the youth of New Orleans, bring me a gun and I'll give you a trumpet. No questions asked. I wanted to build a relationship on trust with the kids, so that They wouldn't have to worry about getting into trouble. The musician called the city's mayor and got the police to agree that they would take the guns from him without asking for any details. And I say this in I have a different connection with these kids because I grew up like them. I know what they're going through. I know the type of environment that they're in and they aren't bad. Kids just dealt into bad circumstances. They are trying and wants him to do other things, but it's nothing for them to do. So far, Alan has taken in four guns and given away for trumpets. The first gun that I collected was from a girl like a little girl. And it was the only grand I was fully loaded and I just was like, man like this is a look. I would never suspect that she will have this. And she was the most excited about getting it gave with a trumpet. He has the information. If you want to get lessons, you could reach out to one of these teachers. They'll be willing to probably saved the situation. Yeah, I'd probably say the situation. Since he ran out of instruments. Alan started an online fundraiser. He has raised more than $10,000 for music supplies, and people have also donated their own instruments. That trumpet was the first thing I showed me. Oh, I really don't have to be here. It's really a whole other world out there. And Alan is hoping that this instrument will have a similar impact for kids in New Orleans today, so if I can create those little opportunities for one of two or three of them, they can actually bring that back. So their neighborhood and they were all over. That's the voice of trumpeter Shemar Allen, who is trying to reduce gun violence in his community in New Orleans.

Debating the Ahmaud Arbery case

"Equa mercy. Join his acklin great to see you. Did He. How dare you? How dare you? This is my house and you're wearing yenkey stuff. Scion unapologetically hello. All right well I just hope that during our debate I do better than the mets do against the Yankees that's. Hoping all right, let. This is what we're GONNA to talk about is the video. The video and the Aubrey case is an amazing piece of evidence. For the prosecution against the McMichael's because you see everything they do. Those are the two guys with the guns in the pickup, one of whom shoots and kills armory. But I think unfortunately. It's a great piece of evidence for the man who is recording that video. Roddy Brian Acklin you do not agree with me. Do not you are wrong. You're wrong. All right I'M GONNA go first, and it starts here and I say unfortunately and I want to preface that folks I'm not making an argument for Roddy. Brian what I'm telling you is what's going to happen and unfortunately this is a great piece of evidence for Roddy, Brian, this video and it comes down to the arguments that Kevin Goth is attorney. Make look at the facts surrounding the video, the only person on the face of the earth who knows this video is being made and being recorded at the time. It's being made in recorded. Is Roddy Brian Okay. He's the only one that knows. That this video exists. He's the only person on earth okay. So, if in fact, prosecutors are going to argue that these three men are working as a lynch mob. Are they going to argue that Roddy Brian's job as part of this lynch mob is to Corral And make sure that you record the lynching, so we can memorialize all of this. And don't forget how everyone finds out about the recording. Roddy Brian at the scene. Invites police into his truck to view the video, so police show up there. Just investing you try to figure out what happens and Ronnie Brian. Tells Police. Listen I got I've got it on video. I, recorded it. Please take a look at it. Shows it to them right then and there. So. Again. Unfortunately, the argument that Kevin Goth can make is lazy. Let's go inside the body Brian. What's his intent? Here was his intent to lynch. Ahmad Aubrey. If so, why would he record a crime? And then why? When police show up the first thing he would do is hand over to police the evidence of the crime that he committed. This goes one hundred percent into the mindset of Roddy Brian and this is a strong argument that Kevin Goth can make to a jury. that. Why on earth would someone record their own crime and then the first thing they do when police show up? Is hand the piece of evidence over to them. ACKLIN. Arguing was very compelling in sense. It's you can tell that you're not racist. By the argument that you provided because we did not include the racist element. Ronnie, Brian in the Michael's were racist, and they were on age racist Tirade. That is why they went around. That is why they have video. As you can see back in the day when they did lynchings in wasn't prided, they had videos. They need pictures of it because they were excited about what they did. We are in a world in which we have Presidential rallies in which races tirades are invited so to to be to say that Haiti's men weren't in building would be wrong. They were in bolted with regards to the back surrounding the video. Let's talk about it the fact surrounding videos. Let's talk about the video. When he was I invited. It was no audio I. Don't know I have that function in my recording in the sense in which I can record a thin ideo in not on your. You know who had the. Mr Brian. We didn't hear the shock in the basement of something that somebody about to die. Why because that million participating in now? He missed a whole big piece of evidence in that pieces of Ahmad. Berry was found on missed the giants car. Pieces that means that evidence of Mr Bridge that means that he hit. The armory with his car to prevent him for movie. To say that he was unarmed is wrong. Mr Robin Mister Bryant had the biggest weapon it at the time. Which is the whole vehicle? Truck with a whole trump down at he did his way, even had that man was cool hand Luke because he was watching a murder, and nobody asked for the audio initially because he was a murder. You know who that the cops you had racist cops come to a racist situation. Leave. The racism states okay hit him with the high side and let him live for three months. Months without any interruption to say that Mister. Bryant wasn't guilty is a farce. He was very much guilty at an end for three months. They watched a video and immig miles. What because they were able to stop? Being friends after Arboretum was shot and killed, they were still friends. They still had the video. They watched it so much, so daddy opened the door to sexual crimes. The this, this case should shock the conscience because the levels of racism in this case is unreasonable, we act three different prosecutors. This prosecutor who saw this in didn't think that this was a murder. We had officers at the scene saw this. In, dot, this which justify so the the Glenn Races. When the most important that evidence of our very being on righties car was still on his car. Three months acted incident and nearly care to wash off so. That that is that the video helps Brian. Totally doesn't work acting that. You didn't plinking most so. The prosecutors are going to argue. That Roddy Brian. Was Racist which they can. Was In cahoots and knew the police would not charge him, which is why he shared the video with police, and knew the process and shared it with the prosecutor because he knew the prosecutor would never charge them, is that do you think that is? An argument that is going to fly with the again. This I'm saying. These are all unfortunate facts for prosecutors in this case, and the prosecutors are going to have to prosecute. Roddy Brian. The McMichael's the local Glenn County Police and the prosecutor's office all in the same trial in order for that theory of yours to to not help. Roddy Brian? Welcome welcome to the practicing law. The South the levels of racism is so appeared like many I. I have to think of Armagh. Arbitrary. That I may get I get that I. Get that, but here's my point. My point is this makes that video the fact that he shoots video and there's more obstacles now. Prosecutors unfortunately again that and to me the obstacle is not only do I have to prosecute these three men. I've got to prosecute the local police and I've got to prosecute the local prosecutor and guess what I'm probably going to have to do it in Glynn County. Georgia. That makes the case more difficult. It's like it's like A. It's like a harper. Literally, but this is what in is in the south? We Wanna say that we come. We've come so far, but that's what it is, and that's how that's how big it is. That's how big it is I think we're agreeing here Hear me out here me out on my theory and why we're agreeing okay, because we're. We're making to arguments that are. not necessarily in conflict everything you're saying. I'm I'm agreeing with. Right. I, just have to get you to agree with the fact that the case is a little bit harder against Roddy Brian with him shooting that video and handing it to police, because now prosecutors have to take on the police and the prosecutors right so. Can we agree on that yes? Yes, all right all right I think we solved it. I think we did. This is a big moment, but I will not ever. Ever cheer for the Yankees. Especially when they play my mets, that will never happen, but I think we can agree here. To a certain extent that the there's going to be some obstacles here, but I think what you have shown me. And made me realize how you look at the case. You know I look at the case a certain way, but I have to get a different mentality onto to to get to that next level. So? Wow Acklin, always great having you on the show for having go Yankees got. That will be her last time on the show by the way. Either that or we can edit that out next time. We'll just bleep it out. Right Acklin mercy, incredible criminal defense attorney. In Georgia knows Georgia law. Insider knows Georgia juries, which is the most important part of of trying to case when we come back. I WANNA, talk about hate crimes, because at the time of the Amman archery shooting there was no hate crime. Law in Georgia and people were. Besides themselves coast to coast. When you come back I'm going to explain to you why it's really not a big deal. Especially in this case, number one and number two. Hate crimes. Are Way too over height by the media.

Bioethicist Jessica Flanigan On Libertarian Views Toward Face Mask Laws

"I'm going to stay on the subject of face mask a little longer as you probably know government orders to wear some kind of face covering whether outdoors or indoors or triggering hostility and some quarters, even though in the absence of a vaccine for covert 19 Health experts say face coverings remain one of the best tools to fight the spread on Wednesday, Georgia's governor Bryant can't even banned local governments for enforcing these laws. Now, critics of these laws generally say these mask orders violate their right to individual liberty, so we wanted to go a little bit deeper on this argument, which is generally described as libertarian. We've called on Jessica Flanagan for this. She teaches bio ethics at the University of Richmond and is the author of the book. Pharmaceutical Freedom. Why Patients have a right to self medicate and she is with us now, Professor Flanagan. Welcome. Thank you for joining us. Thank you. So let me just establish a few things before we start our conversation. We're not going to focus on people who don't take the virus seriously because it is serious. I mean, at least twice as many people have already died from this virus as dying a terrible year of the common flu, and we're also going to skip past people who say they're not wearing a mass because they somehow think it shows their support for President Trump. If they don't wear masks that's not Focus here. We want to focus on the core idea of individual liberty versus the common good and health context. So just start there. If you would, I mean is there a basic libertarian view about public health measures like face masks? I think that there's two questions about this. The first is should people wear masks and stay home? And I think they're the libertarian answer is yes, because libertarians believe, or they should believe that people should wear masks because infecting someone with a harmful illness violates their Bali rights. Self ownership in Bali rights are Foundational to libertarianism. So masks make it less likely that people will violate these rights. So all libertarians should support mask wearing and staying home when it's possible. Second question is harder, though, should the government forced mask mandates and lockdowns and there the answer is more. It depends. The government should only restrict people's freedom and private spaces when it's necessary, and when the benefits of enforcing it exceed the cost of enforcing it. So some cases of Preventing people from exposing other peoples to risks are less problematic. For example, the government enforces speed limits on public roads. But mask mandates or things like lockdowns would applied a private businesses as well. And in those cases, there's a higher burden of proof that the government would need toe. Clear to establish that there really should be a mandate. But it's not as clear in some contacts that that burden of proof of the mat. How has it not been met? When you have more than 130,000 people have already died? This is highly contagious. It's a respiratory virus. People can transmit it without even knowing that they are themselves sick. That's how has that bird not been met? I have salubrious. As I said, I think everybody should wear a mask and people just social distance for sure. But it's not as if enforcing the law is free of any kind of costs. And so in order to enforce the law that's limiting people's authority toe run. Their businesses are Acting certainly is in private spaces. Not we're not talking about the government spaces where I think a mass mandate is totally fine been private contexts. They should be able to show that they have tried less bird in some ways of addressing the virus first. So, for example, Putting more resources behind expanding access to test a medical care provided, more pp. Investing contact. Tracing FDA only approved pool testing yesterday so public officials can require massed on government property and they could buy a lot of other ways to mitigate the virus. But how do you respond to the fact that it is a fact that certain communities, particularly black brown, Native American people have demonstrated to be far more vulnerable for a whole array of reason, so that we've well discussed at this point than other groups? One of the things that were conversations we're starting to see now. Is a real sense that people who are not as deeply affected as they have been on the aggregate just don't care or that they have sort of abandoned a sense of moral responsibility to other people just because they don't look like them and because they are not them or not related to them. How do you respond to that? That's part of the reason that I think that we should really weigh the risks on both sides because On one hand, the virus is disproportionately harmful to marginalized communities, but on the other hand, expanding people's vulnerability to police power that expansion of legal interference or the threat of law enforcement. Is also going to potentially be disproportionately harmful to people who are marginalized or people who lack social power. And so when we're making these types of risk benefit judgments, we should consider the risks of enforcement in the discriminatory effects of law enforcement or that this proportion harms of law enforcement. Alongside the disproportionate harms of the virus that communities who are more marginalized. That's Jessica Flanagan, professor of bioethics at the University of Richmond and author of the book Pharmaceutical Freedom. My Patients Have a Right to Self Medicate Professor Flanagan.

"As Washington sets a new daily record for covert 19 cases, the state unemployment division says new claims are surging almost Bryant Calvert joins us with a closer look in the straw that may break Washington's back. The stories came from all over the state and had a familiar tone are state failing. The workers group working Washington put on a Facebook live oven Thursday, offering a platform critical of how unemployment claims have been processed. Since the pandemic began, and eventually ended up living in my car. At that point, I decided that nothing about the system would change unless people like us started seeing down.

This week's unemployment numbers reflect a near 43% jump in new claims for a department still having a rough time dealing with claims that dates back to April, May and June. For its part, the employment security division has hired Mohr help in an effort to get benefits paid. But if we're in the heat of a battle, Armageddon could be just around the corner. On Thursday, governor Inslee reflected on the recent rise in covert 19 cases and said, If we can't get these numbers falling soon, he'll consider closing the state once again and ordering a second stay at home order. The threat likely sent the business community into a panic mode, as many of them are barely hanging on at this point. And the second state closure would push thousands more residents to an unemployment department that can't keep up with current demands. The governor then reminded us there is something that will prevent another closure. So how individuals respond to this crisis? Will determine what happens to all of us combined. These are individual acts of community responsibility that can save

Several teams said that their test results were taking longer than twenty hours to arrive. Of the results do not come back in twenty four hours. They simply cannot play. Because then you run the risk of players playing games being around their teammates for days knowing if they tested positive for coronavirus, and as a result, there's been players showing concern. There's been teams already canceling workouts putting out angry statements criticizing Major League baseball for not making this quicker for or following their own rules already major league baseball is trying to find another lab or to to try to help process these tests, but it's a bad start. In one interview Chicago Cubs Star Kris Bryant said quote. I wanted to play this year. Because I thought it would be safe and I would feel comfortable, but honestly I don't really feel that way major. League Baseball released a statement saying that more than ninety five percent of that first round of tests have been conducted analyzed shared with teams the League, said quote.

"bryant" Discussed on The Jump

"Not at her age. Kobe was right. She had it pouring out of such an emotional service. Janet Bryant spoke full Mandarin. She could speak and write mandarin and Spanish. I learned so much in the service so many cool things about her and I love that. I love that we got a little bit more personal touch both about her and Kobe. Because so much of what we've heard especially about. Gina was of course as a daughter right in relation to Kobe. And of course I mean she's still a teenager but I love the way so many of the speakers today humanized personalized her as her own young woman. I felt like that meant a tremendous amount and Kobe was the one who we were learning more about the relationship as the debt right. He's a father of a daughter that kind of thing and that warmth t mention that you guys were at these tournaments together. It was fascinating to me that you guys were so close earlier in your career you would come stay at his house in the summer two teenagers taking the NBA by storm together. Here's a year ahead of you giving you so much advice and then as you became competitors the way we know Kobe Bryant would do Kobe. Shut everything else out. You guys were of course still on good terms still friendly but not close in that way because nobody he was going against could be close to him and then in this last year the way your friendship reached an entirely new level as dad's was so amazing to me to watch. What does it mean to you to have that extra time with him in this entirely new way it meant admits everything Just to drive out to Orange County and watches girls practice and this is my first time really seeing him seeing him in a different light being around those girls the way he ran that the organization. I mean it was. It was like he ran like a NBA camp like a franchise With the trainers on staff and how they work how they prepare for Games. We go to these tournaments and just see how well coached. They are like Who made that? Thank you Gino was talking about. The the guy that you know wasn't able to be coached so here leading a group of young women and I mean when when I tell you watching them and and how well coached they were. It was just like a well oiled machines. Like you watch San Antonio Spurs. I mean. These girls were so disciplined so skilled triangle when she was like eight or nine is incredible in the triangles. Pretty tough to pick up a lot of the triangle stories. We heard were like half of the Kobe stories today. Were involved text messages at two thirty or three o'clock that I can tell you a whole thing going on with normal people are asleep. He he figured it out. I mean it's it's the second part of his life for me. He really figured it out and he was just putting his passionate toy and we can all see I mean he's he loves those girls. He loves his daughter in parade and her around and and just teaching hurt away. And for me personally. I got the opportunity to see her closing. She was on her way to greatness. Yeah I mean look. We've had this conversation a few times in the last few weeks. There's no reason she couldn't have been the best women's basketball player ever. We'll never know of course and the Goat Diana Ross spoke today but here's someone with Kobe Bryant jeans right so she had that going for her she was trained by the most sort of maniacal absolute best from an early age and picked up not only his athleticism but his determination. She was exposed to everything that modern basketball technology had to she was headed to Yukon as we heard Gino talk about today the best finishing school in the world for women's basketball players. And why not by the time she reached the WNBA could she not have been the best and the WNBA at that point would have been ready for her right the way it has so much more exposure now than it has in the past. It's hard not to see it and it's an opportunity lost and and part of such a great tragedy that we are reminded today. We're GONNA take a very quick break but coming up we will.

"In the beginning of his NBA career? It's weird because the the you know as you as you guys talk about in the Post Denver years that wilfulness became almost like a brand right like his sort of singular focus became his brand Dan before. Then that was definitely like what he was known for. It was that he was when he was like at Lower Marian. It wasn't just that he was six when he was reelected in high school but that he was sort of a workhorse. I remember a year after the draft Allen Iverson. Kobe was always in the same. Alan Iverson draft but the sixers drafted Larry Hughes the following year. And coming out of sort of someone. Just the pickup games in the area was that Kobe. Bryant had outplayed every guard who've been playing sort of in the sixers orbit and there were some people apparently wanted the draft Kobe Bryant and the sixers brass apparently because he was just that advance even though he was obviously still a kid but there was a lot of talk that he was going to be a better pro but at the time it was still very anomalous for high school players jump to the league and was also especially anomalous for back at court players to do so and so I think there was a sense that there was going to be this weird difficulty. Spike that you know that that might not translate to the League as effectively as we all know it did. Yeah the one person who didn't I didn't have any qualms about that was jerry. West of the Lakers isn't that there's a story that Brian comes out talk to do a workout for the team. pre-draft and West leaves the workout early and says I've seen enough. He's already better than anybody. That's on our team right. Now right I mean and I think it was a bunch of layers in the Philadelphians relationship for the Philadelphia choice ships. Kobe Bryant I think I sort of resented him personally because when you into the Lakers looked like he was in line to supplant you know Temple Legend Eddie Jones owns aptitude arbitration. I didn't like who is this kid. Like I love that he does and so I had like this long. Interminable list of reasons to Alex do dissipated. It's weird because you mentioned this right class of ninety-six forty-one still like Kobe is always sort of been part of the celebrity landscape in my life. Right and and you know we talked about the brand thing the rap career I remember in some of these media appearances that he'd made over the years to he was clearly like trying to make himself self into a thing like he was on in the house. Remember the show with you. Yeah right he and Derek Fisher like went on there and I was like Oh man I just totally. I totally forgotten that like Hobie hit spent a lot of time like trying to build this image of herself as something more than a basketball. He wasn't just like other dudes. Don't forget the destiny's child video. Yeah yeah that's right. That's right bugaboo. He was in Bugaboo to yeah. I think he was very open with us. I mean he wanted to be will Smith. That's what he said. But isn't that isn't that. A characteristic of Kobe is entire career that he was always looked like he wanted to be something else. In addition to being the greatest he was always really trying very very hard until later until later. I think one of the things that always again like that. I guess spills where it say. What was greeted me about him whether he seemed like such try? Hard That I mean his dalliances dalliances with hip hop. I think a lot of felt like that was like rich. Boy 'cause play you know like he was like you know. He's from the suburbs of Philadelphia. He's you know the child of an NBA player right. He's like ah a rich suburb of Philadelphia. Lower Italian yes exactly right. He's sort of this cosmopolitan kid. Who was trying what seemed right so some of us like I'm trying really hard to be like someone that he wasn't which probably wasn't completely fair for us to think that but you know we were teenagers and I wanted to give to be like you know judicial judicious affair but he always was like clearly positioned himself to be like this pop culture? Figure is kind of remarkable to think. I never really thought about this until yesterday but like the pre rape allegations Kobe. Bryant was just how ubiquitous a pitch man. He was he almost got there right like I mean he was McDonald's commercials. I still remember. That one was a precocious kid walking off with them and like I challenge you to play one one Kobe and he's sort of like how bees Kobe gentle figure which is like almost impossible to imagine you. You know Kobe. The last fifteen years Being somebody who was like joking around with a kid who will be like cutthroat. Oh you know what I mean like. He sort of was clamoring to be that person. The sort of like pop culture figure in a way. That didn't always seem graceful. Felt very very deliberate. It felt very erotic right. Because I remember you you probably Ali remember this right. It seems remarkable to say this. In retrospect but that all star game where he was named MVP in Philly and they booed him and he'd like look legitimately hurt. You know I would never have imagined it like if you move fourteen years. You could never imagine Kobe responding that way looking hurt by the crowd loud booing him right absolutely. I remember that was legitimately surprised by that and I think that was this. Part of the other thing was like Hobie was due to talk about himself as a Philadelphian and was also like genuinely generally disliked by Philadelphians. Once it became a pro. I mean he was a Laker right so he one of our. You know historical rivals. I think there was a sense. That he wasn't isn't real Philadelphian. There's all this stuff that was layered into this contempt for this dude. And the fact that he played for the Lakers. And there's a lot of antipathy Timothy Around.

You know what I learned from Colby you know Before he try to master the game of basketball he was working on mastering the game of Kobe. Before you master anything that you doing you you have to master yourself with discipline Consistency Working on the things that you're not good at And not being afraid to take a shot in the moment and He he taught me how to better myself and to go into the things and never be satisfied. Never be satisfied You know there's always tomorrow you can always do better. You know what I mean you can always give it a better shot bit better effort and a line from Kobe Bryant richer you were on the other team but on the court during one of the most visual moments of Kobe's career and it wasn't winning a title it was when he snapped his Achilles. You're on the bench right at that side of the court. Can you describe. Describe what you saw and then what happened afterward so I remember right there he asked Harrison. Barnes like hey did you kick me right like I could see him mouth it right and we were just no right because if you go back and look at he'd been playing forty eight minutes forty eight minutes like he hadn't missed. Many Games are many minutes and they'll minutes he was he was he was getting that team and he knew that they needed those two free throws it was late in the game. And we're all sitting there like all. Maybe it's just a tweak. Maybe what because you saw him just like like every other Achilles injury. It's just this but Kobe limped over there knocked down two free throws and then limped off the court and so even in those moments. We're all hoping and thinking for the best. Like oh well if obviously if he can he can do that right. Yeah maybe it's just a pull. Maybe it's a strain. Maybe it's a and and it was just I. It's just one of those things that like very rarely is like the real life thing like a movie very rarely right. There's no way that you can you know guys'll Derek jeter tiger woods when they Michael Jordan very you know our greatest heroes a Lotta Times. There's the story seems like a movie and even him coming back and maybe they they didn't get to the the level that they wanted to later in his career but for him to end on the note that he did is something that no one could right. I don't even think he could and the Kobe story is complicated. He did not live a perfect life he was not a saint. The sexual assault charge in Colorado is going to be part of his story. There is no criminal conviction him but there was a civil settlement He did issue a public apology. And then I saw him really spend serious effort through the rest of his life in working on how he treated women how he talked to women what he did for women and for me. That meant a lot that he wanted to do better and we saw him and what he did for Women's sports he was one of the loudest Advocates College Basketball Games. WNBA game supporting the US Women's national soccer team Oregon. Sabrina Sabrina Ionescu just broken up before her game yesterday thinking about her friend. Kobe Richard his impact on Women's sports. I mean talked to. Ah Yeah if you look at Steph curry and you WANNA know one way to really involve a women's sports have daughters that are passionate about it and see somebody that your daughter you you want those role models that your daughters look to to support and he was again like you said one of the loud voices when you got a guy that magnitude chip in to women's sports it has a tremendous impact. And you know you talk about the course of his life. You're right. He was not a perfect human. And I think that's what connected us to him as we watched him from a seventeen year old boy growing to this man that we come to know as Kobe Bryant and wasn't flawless. Would we love a bottom. He was always trying to get better yes he was always trying to get there. So that's what we love about him. We Love the journey of the man trying to try for perfection and in so many ways right so many things that he felt like I could do better every time we see him for he came back stronger in better and it just meant a lot to so many here. Thank you guys so much for everything today. I want to thank everyone who joined the show. Our condolences go out the entire families of Kobe.

"So beat the. We're here to talk about the tragic. Death breath of former Lakers star. Kobe Bryant who died in a helicopter crash yesterday along with we believe eight other people. So let's start with what what we know happened on Sunday morning people living in Calabasas a town west of La heard a loud noise one person. Jason said they heard the sound of helicopter blades and then allowed impact and then people saw a fire erupt and the L. A. County Fire Department received nine one one call at nine forty seven. AM local time about brushfire and a potential helicopter down and CALABASAS. Is this town that sort of spills. Dell's up on the side of the Santa Monica Mountains. Like you said about thirty miles northwest of downtown. La and the crash happened in a pretty hard to reach mountainous area near. You're there. Yeah it's it's the sort of woodsy terrain it's it's prone to brushfires and they've had problems with fires there for some time including a really big fire. There air in two thousand eighteen at a news conference Sunday afternoon. Daryl odds be a spokesperson for the La County Fire Department said that they dispatched a really really large crew of people in response to the crash and the fire. The loss of this county fire department initial response was fifteen pieces of apparatus. Fifty six personnel that consisted of paramedics catching company. Heavy rescue truck company hand crews the aircraft in a chief officer to oversee the incident but he said that the emergency responders did not find anyone alive at the scene of the crash Russian. They did a search of the area for survivors. Unfortunately all the survivors bore were determined to have the parish. And we also don't want to read into this too much because the cause of the crash is still being investigated but there was some really dense fog in los dangerous on Sunday. I actually was talking about it with someone on Sunday morning before we even heard about the crash. Yeah it's it's definitely something that is being talked about As a potential contributing factor in the crash and flights were delayed due to dense fog at LAX. On Saturday. But again we'll have to wait and see what the the investigation finds and so at the time that we're now speaking late Sunday night Los Angeles time. We believe that there were nine people on board the helicopter. Yeah at that Sunday Sunday afternoon. News Conference. Sheriff Alex Villanova made reference to a flight manifest basically a list of passengers on board an aircraft as achieve indicated. There were no survivors. We haven't manifests indicates that there was nine people on board the aircraft. The pilot plus eight individuals There arose the white speculation who had entities are however it is entirely inappropriate right now to identify anyone by name until the corner has made identification advocation through their very delivered profits. And they've made made enough -cation six again and there was this pretty remarkable moment where the sheriff called out out. TMZ apparently reporting that. Kobe Bryant had died and hinting that they broke that story before the Bryant family had been notified ride and it'd be extremely disrespectful to understand that your low one of these terrorists and learn about it from TMZ that is just wholly all the inappropriate. So we're not going to be going there. We're going to wait to the quarter desert job and we're assisting the families of those who believe there had been impacted and it's a IT'S A. It's a tough process but at this point multiple sources have confirmed a number of deaths two different media outlets so let's talk about Who We know was on that helicopter so Kobe Bryant who is forty one years old and his thirteen year old daughter? Jonah also known as G G. Jj was a young basketball player. Who is very much her father's daughter? She had his drive and his determination and she was very much the heir to the Bryant Basketball Mantle. You know Kobe had four daughters and G G would very famously say that. He didn't need a son to carry on his legacy that she would do that. And he talked talked about that on. The Jimmy. Kimmel show one time. Do you think your daughter Might WanNa play WNBA. She does for sure she this kid man happy we great man. The best thing the best thing that happened to go out and fans come up to me and she'll be standing next to me. It'd be like you gotTa have a boy you gotTa have a boy somebody carry on a tradition the legacy. She's like oh I got this. Aw got this. And he'd often be seen sitting with G. G. courtside analyzing the game with her in his daughter in the building breaking down the game. I Love I love this For multiple reasons great to have of course. Kobe Bryant his daughter here. But you could tell. Now he's sitting right near us but he's been breaking down. The chilton time to his daughter was a basketball player herself in that the beautiful awful thing. He was her coach you know. He coached her on her travel team and they were on their way to a game at Kobe's Mamba Sports Academy when when their helicopter crashed. And it's been reported that three of the other people on board were a baseball coach named John Kelly. His wife Kerry and their daughter Eliza Who was on the same basketball team as Kobe? Daughter Jonah. John is the one we know the most about so far. Yeah John Altobelli. Was College Baseball Baseball coach. He coached at Orange Coast College. For Twenty seven years he won four state titles and more than seven hundred games and from all accounts. He was the kind of coach who who truly put his players. I who who treated them like family. ESPN's Jeff Passan chalked. Jeff McNeil plays for the New York mets and had played for Altobelli Valley in the Cape Cod League and McNeill said quote. He's one of the main reasons I'm still playing professional baseball. And John Kerry altobelli reportedly have two surviving surviving children. Yes a teenage daughter Alexis and an adult son. Jj who is now a scout with the Boston Red Sox and Sunday night a local local news affiliate reported that another passenger on this helicopter was Christina. Moser would we know about her at this early point in time. She was an assistant basketball coach at harbor day school and Orange County. Her husband Matt posted on his facebook. Page saying that their family is devastated. Asking for privacy for himself in his children and we should note that Dr Jonathan Lucas. The chief medical examiner for the county of Los Angeles spoke Sunday night and said that they're in the process of recovering and identifying the bodies. But that that could take multiple days potentially given how difficult that is to access the crash site and the NTSB the National Transportation Safety Board is currently investigating the cause of this crash and so it could be that as of now there has not been unofficial statement from the Bryant family or from the Lakers. So there's still a lot we don't know oh but the reactions from the basketball world and really the entire world have really been pretty incredible and very emotional yeah they have NBA. Commissioner Adam. Silver called Kobe quote one of the most extraordinary players in the history of our game and cited his five. NBA Championships. Two Thousand Nine League. MVP Eighteen all star selections and two Olympic gold medals. Magic Johnson called Kobe the greatest Laker of all time and shack who won three championships with Kobe and his forever entwined with him tweeted about his heartbreak. His teammates they won three championships together. She kilo. Neil there's no words to express the pain I'm going through with this tragedy of losing my niece gee-gee and my brother Koby Bryan. I love you and you'll be missed my condolences Sousse go out to the Bryant. Family and Doc rivers the clippers. Coach got very choked up in front of reporters when he was asked about Kobe shortly after he got the news. I don't have a lot to say. The news is just devastating to everybody. Who Noah you know? And you know he just he meant it means a a lot to me. Obviously you know we also saw NBA teams throughout the League. Honor Koby during games and this has been happening all all around the League every team I possession taking a twenty four second shot clock violations as an Omagh the Kobe Bryant number twenty four..

"The basketball star Kobe Bryant was killed in helicopter crash. In calabasas California Bryant was forty one eight others including his thirteen year old daughter. Jonah died in the accident. Tributes have been pouring in for the Lakers legend. We all feel a deep sense. A loss us for woody meant to all of us in so many ways in so many millions of people loved him for so many different reasons and this was a man for all he was more than iconic a basketball player he was someone who inspired millions of fans. All over the world. Today is is one of the saddest days Malaysia. You seems like a bad. The Badgering One Waco is a nightmare today. We're joined by. ESPN's Ramona Shelbourne. Who covered Bryant for fifteen years? Ramona where are you right now. You know I'm sitting in my car outside the Mamba Academy in thousand oaks and There's like hundreds of people here putting flowers down just kind of trying to cope with the news here and this is the academy. He started Where he was on his way here For a basketball game and he was here all the time. Those folks there's a lot of people who no I'm just seeing a lot of young women walking walking up and down the street just sad wearing their koby. Jerseys I think everyone in Los Angeles right now really around the world but especially early right here where Kobe's been. He was a young man when he was drafted by the Lakers and so he became a man here he became an old man here he he retired here. People feel like they knew their whole life. And so I've been kind of all over today going to the crash site and seeing that helicopter after still smoldering on the hillside With Laker fans and just not even Laker fans. Just everybody knew who heard about it. People kind of needed to go. Oh and witnesses to see to believe that it was true and even then honestly it doesn't feel like it really happened. When did you first hear the news you know I was? It was home playing with my son this morning and My friend just got an alert on her phone she she wears an apple. Watch and dot an alert when TMZ posted the story story. And and I dropped my phone and I started calling everybody that I knew close to Kobe to go into reporter mode. Because you've got to confirm remit and find out what happened and what's going on here and it was right about eleven thirty when when this all happened so immediately like I think I'm shaking when I heard this and it's it's really hard to process that Kobe's gone and then to find out how many other people are gone along with him with his daughter daughter. Jonah G. G. God he was always telling me about G G. He was so so proud of her like he was always picturing her in the WNBA. You know she's already verbally. Committed to uconn right. I mean he was so proud of her and they love talking basketball it she had that same drive and ferocity that he did and you can just tell how how much he was beaming about her and over the years especially since he's been retired like Kobe and I've stayed in touch and connected you know as we're about the same image right we. We have respect for each other professionally. But I think it's become a more more of a friendship since he retired is always telling me about his kids like that's what he was doing now. You know he either whenever I would never call him he was always at the office working or at one of his kids. Basketball Games or choir practices or something with kids like an an and like that was his life right now and I can't believe at forty one that his life is over. I you know I actually told them at one point like hey man enjoy retirement. Slow down a little bit like you're you're in the office all the time you're working and She just had so much that he was doing. And I'm glad he didn't slow down. You know we have a lot that he's written and said and done to to remember him by and I think his legacy will only grow with time Ramona Ramona. When the news broke there were a lot of conflicting reports confusion about who was on the helicopter? We now know that Kobe's three other daughters in his his wife s Were not in the accident when you got to Calabasas. What'd you learn? Well you know initially I talked to some of the residents. There's there's a couple of apartment buildings around there and some some people who had heard and seen the crash and one man told me he saw he he heard the helicopter are any solid flying low. And then you just heard this falling sound and he knew something was really wrong and he he. He had been on the phone at the time so he went outside and saw all the smoke and the brushfire when they like. This happens like everybody wants answers. Everybody wants to know like was it. The fog the weather conditions of the helicopter contrary There's no way to process this. Would we know right now about the other passengers on the flight while we know his You know his daughter Tatjana was there and then The manifest of the helicopter said there were nine people aboard. And that's part of what's so sad about this. Is that you know. They were on their way to a basketball event. And this is just like a Sunday with the family for a lot of different families here as we're talking I'm seeing footage outage from outside the Staples Center. There's hundreds and hundreds of fans putting up sort of makeshift memorials. You just described what's happening at the Mamba Academy Academy his basketball school. How is the city of Los Angeles taking notice? I mean honestly it feels like this giant hole in the city right now like La Watch. Kobe grow up Elliott. Watch Kobe through the best of his life and the worst of his life you. Oh you watched him come back from injuries. You watched him as an old man. You watched him grow old not especially gracefully and then you watched him have the Sublime Ma last game where he scored sixty points on fifty shots. I mean I don't think I've ever seen staple center that electric and I was. I've been there when the Lakers won the NBA Championship. It was never like it was the nineteen sixty it was unbelievable and La. kind of feels like they know MLA. I'm Elliott kind of. Feels like he's their guy and you know maybe it's the same as New York feels about Derek jeter. It feels like that and I think people are still in shock to be honest like I. It doesn't feel real like it feels like you're gonNA wake up and that was a hoax or a bad dream but it obviously is and I think that's why everybody's coming to the Mamba Academy or the Hillside Calabasas. Just kinda witness listen and and process for years ago. Oh you wrote about Kobe. I just reread the story in the first line is Kobe. Bryant wants to talk about what comes after death. You're talking about basketball basketball death there because you were yeah spending the last few weeks months of his career with him. But it's reading that now it's is just haunting honestly when I first wrote it it was life after death is basketball player right and if felt like he'd you being so obsessed with basketball like what was he going to be afterwards. How could he be anything afterwards?.

"In the fall of nineteen ninety eight an elderly woman known as the Cat Lady went missing. She had a very Very Distinctive Silhouette and very recognizable. When so you're walking into town a handkerchief on her hair long overcoat like somebody that lived on the street? All police could find were thirty. Thirty cats shot dead. I always knew something happened to her disadvantage like that uncover the cat lady case from CBC ABC podcasts. This is a CBC podcast Galloway. This is podcast from the January. Twenty seventh edition of the current a Toronto Raptors been attributed up. There's a twenty four second shot clock and of course Kobe Bryant wore number twenty four and I wonder if that is what is happening in in honor of him. Twenty four second shot clock expired remarkable scene yesterday at the beginning of Toronto Raptors game the Raptors in the San Antonio Spurs pay tribute to NBA Great. Kobe Bryant Bryant running down the twenty four second shot clock in honor of the number that he wore twenty four. Kobe Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash. In California yesterday eight other people including including his daughter were also killed Gomez. Kelly has written about Kobe Bryant extensively over the years and he's with me in studio now. Good morning morning. How would you describe Kobe? Bryant has a basketball go. I would say a brilliant an incredibly brilliant but complicated figure transformative I think the modern NBA. And I'm not talking about the tactics of the way they play but the way the NBA carries itself. It's dominance throughout the world is perhaps the world's most fascinating league a lot of that is down to him. Why what what did he do? There are other superstar superstar. Certainly what did he do. That was transforming. I would suggest that the thing that Ryan did that. You know it's hard not to call them Koby The thing that Kobe did that other other players couldn't do is that he brought this mercurial persona this need to attract attention on and off the court and a sort of arrogance the translated with fans in a way that mere play couldn't I think the way I put it. Today's he was social media before there was social media. He was a person that used the price us who berated his teammates who castigated his opponents who was against everyone tilted every windmill and people found that fascinating and the important important thing of course is that he could back it up. He was probably the most brilliant player of his generation fascinating. backstory grew up in a basketball family and grew up in Europe before he moved back to North America. who was Kobe? Bryant and in that context in that context Kobe Bryant was a a child that was bred for greatness whose parents had decided in his youth he would be special in some way. That wasn't necessarily basketball. But it turned out that weighs father play professionally overseas. He was home schooled and so when he arrived. Eddie arrived with this incredible cockiness and self assuredness that people really hadn't seen before he was able to display in a bunch of different languages. -solutely was multi-lingual. You know it was pointed out that he could have got a scholarship the US based on his academics not as athletics so he was someone someone who was bred for greatness and carried that through like never seemed to lose that self belief even when we know forget it wobbled at the beginning wasn't quite the player. He was initially advertised as he had to grow into that role and came in straight from high. I school that's exactly right. He was one of the last to do it. His career there are people in Canada who will remember higher low point in which he scored eighty one points against the Toronto Raptors. What did that tell you what he was capable of that he could? It was two things that happen there I to score eighty. One Point is insane in that game he took forty six shots. The Raptors total so about ten players to seventy six so we. He didn't lack for self belief. That was the thing is that most players will never score that automatics. Most players will not take that many shots and they will try passing off at some point but he just felt he was in a rhythm and kept going later. He called that he didn't talk about The physical physical need of doing it. He's talked at his feet of the imagination. That only he could imagine so big to score eighty one point in the imagination of basketball fans. And you saw this yesterday not just social media but if you talk to basketball fans of a generation of his generation he was the greatest player he mean to Tabasco ball players and fans of the current generation. Because there's Michael Jordan and there's Larry Bird and there's there's a long list of of extraordinary players but in that generation. He seemed special. Well the thing is I think McKee Kobe. Bryant had a Shakespearean Art to his careers is three. Kobe's there's the initial Kobe that wins the first championships and becomes you. Know the the the rising star in the NBA NBA. The new Michael Jordan. Probably the second best shooting garden history after Jordan. Then there is the sex assault accusation at which point his reputation is brought low understandably. Then there is kind of a dark koby period after that when he becomes quite embittered and retreats into himself and then there's that necessarily third arc mark when he becomes the elder statesman that went on for quite a while. That's the player I think. Players of this generation remember when he became a kinder gentler. Koby he he was still. You still could kick against the pricks many hot too. But he was the sort of person that took people under his wing and was more open to new players as you mentioned at the height of his success success. He's accused of sexual assault. He's arrested never tried Settled a civil suit related to this out of court. The story was that this would have destroyed his His career now if this had happened now in the era of me to in an era of heightened awareness around sexual assault That he would have never come back he did come back. And how do you rebuild his his career and his image. After the I think the thing that athletes the advantage. If that's the word we WANNA use that. Athletes athletes have in. This is that you know whereas other careers when something like this happen necessarily stop athlete. There's a huge investment in them. Their career continues because they're under contract in most cases. And so you have your way to play your way out of it fairly or unfairly and people have very strong opinions on that but because he continued to be great and because he continued to win and championships later on people simply forgave is the right word they simply move past it. How does that count the legacy that you see him leaving? It certainly complicates his legacy. I think that's where people to say to themselves At this comes down to I would think an art versus the artist question. I think thank you can appreciate the art without necessarily endorsing every single thing about the artist. There is a view that is shared that The statistics don't define his legacy gacy in some ways that he had all the numbers. But that isn't the full picture. No I think that's absolutely true because it is what we think people will remember about Kobe. Bryant a generation ration- from now is not that he was the fourth leading score of all time or the five championships are the remarkable eighteenth street. All Star Games What it is? The Person Colby. Oh be encouraged players in the NBA. I think writ large to be more themselves to be more honest In the media. But what they thought was going on on to be crueler which people are always attracted to. I mean nobody. Nobody was crueler to his teammates. Think coby Bryan people loved it and also also to see themselves as something more than basketball in sports standards. He was a renaissance man. This guy spoke Italian. He played the piano. Appreciate it art. He was probably the first north. American can athlete that gave people permission to like soccer because he was such a big fan of it. So this is someone that was a lot more than what he did on the court beyond. The numbers is heartbreaking video. That's been circulating regulating Of Kobe Bryant on Jimmy Kimmel show speaking about his daughter who was also killed in the helicopter crash yesterday talking about how she was a basketball player and and when people came up on the street and talk to him he looked at her in some ways as furthering his legacy What does that tell you about who he was as a person people say that that not just? There's a father better. Somebody who became an advocate for women in sport. Yeah in a massive AD. Could he'd recently said that he thought women should be playing in the NBA. Not at some future point but right now this is someone who saw himself. He was raised as a legacy. That was the entire point of his of his child obviously wanted to carry that on. He didn't see his greatness. I I think is imbued entirely in himself. which a lot of a lot of great people do he saw? That is a generational patrimony that he was going to pass on. Call Paul Callan.

"This this was in eight days. And that's when I was like Koby's undeniable. He is undeniably great right now. Hey that's like a movie is exactly ran. It's quite like ushering assuring him. Yeah come right to your spot. Hit this perfect shot and make sure you hit your mark. You'RE GONNA WANNA be right on that ex- We got the shot set up for you right here and he just drains. It was awesome. Yeah that could be. You could statue. I think for him standing on the there's the classic on the thing with arms out Scott it definitely the jaw lower jaw out. I think A game or a moment. Well it's game. Four from two thousand finals against the paces shack fails adcose to overtime and Kobe hit three baskets in overtime in the last one is like a put backwards so it comes from underneath the backboard and sort of tipped it over his head. And then you're seeing being run over to the Lakers benches the pace call a timeout. and Kobe's got the Zaragoza Dan I got this. I got this again. Is Like this guy's twenty one and he's and he's composed already and they went three one up in the series and that was their first championship and Again a bit like like brought trailer saying like all right. Kobe's legit. That was the Miami familiar whereas like okay. This guy is is living up to the hype is going to be pretty exciting to see just had good. He can be when he was. The news broke that he was retiring and stuff like that and we were getting the goodbye. Kobe year there half year. Whatever it was like we were doing like top ten lists on the show and stuff like that and I remember? We did like the top ten games like Kobe Games. Like how much fun. We'd had like debating where everything goes and like what does it make the list and stuff like that but you said like there's definitely the one that team for like you said of two thousand finals. You got the game. Whenever says the sons the one thousand tons more obviously the game where he hit twelve threes guy was the one that he was not an amazing knocked down three threes in a game and an random January two thousand three game against the Sonics? MSG Sixty one the sixty two versus the mavs in the three three quarters which was wild and then of course eighty-one rappers tons on and on and on and they're so awesome. Eighty one for me because I never saw another human do it in the NBA and then no one wilted in the sixties. Obviously to one hundred but You know the eighty-one was special. Because it was it was Kobe. You know Kobe at its best I it was also sort of his downfall. The fact that he shot every single time and part of the reason why some people didn't like them but You know when you look back jacket the Waco played. Some people just can't do what he did even if they're miss shots some people just can't shoot that much. It's a little bit of the Russell Westbrook scenario that we that we're watching today and eighty one man. No one's done it so crazy that happens they were down onto the. I mean it was definitely getting some points there at the end when it was under each round win that game but they were down eighteen like in the third and he caught fire the the massive second half in that one obviously eighty one. You're going to have some massive ads for anyone. You had a few moments against the raptors to it. Actually there was a game in Toronto. Remember is another one where he had a big one at forty six after he said. Listen I only come to Canada once a year WANNA put on a show and it felt like he did that. I like that that it did mean something to because that was like Jordan type thing where I know that the kids in the stand this is the end again. They're ever going to see. I want to remember it and I and so we had that chairmanship quality about him. You know he he liked to put it on and you know in the All Star Games as well particularly those early years he liked he liked to show off in those those. MVP for sure. Speaking of that. This I remember. I found this quote when we were doing the whole. Kobe was retired and stuff. And I think it's just so perfect Michael Michael Rosenberg of SL. He said the NBA is appealing for two fundamental reasons. The artistry of the game itself and the personalities of the stars nobody of this generation honoration epitomised both like Kobe. Bryant spot on on the Lakers through like on the biggest market the biggest thing you know. That's that's the other thing to ought to live up to. That sort of a market is very very tough but he did anything else guys. I mean this we again. We're coming in here late on Sunday night will let us one. Of course breathe here on Monday. We got the. We'll get back into the swing of things. Don't you worry with daily podcast and stuff like that. And we got some specials coming up to But anything else to add. I mean I'm glad we did this. I am actually. I'm oddly feeling better than when we first sat down here. I don't know how to explain it. Maybe just smiling and talking hoops so these guys and thinking about his his career Assad is at all is it. Does it brightens you up a little bit. Yeah I loved his final game as another the thing that it'll always stick with me the warriors were going for NBA history. They were going to win their seventy third game that game that same night and nobody cared. Everybody was watching Kobe. Take fifty shots even remember who he played. It was the jazz. Nobody cares about that either. He took fifty shots scored sixty points. You might think yeah fifty shots who cares sixty points. That's Kobe Bryant man. That was what a way to go out. What a perfect way for him to go out of the NBA taken as many shots as he wants it scoring sixty points and he joked about it saying you know people are telling me like like you shoot too much on tonight shoot? They started really hot too right like he was really efficient. I I if I did see the step right early in that game in that game. Yeah Yeah Yeah well. The jets had a late to in that one. Didn't I and yeah places going in the show. The three yeah. Everybody's obviously respecting the legend. And giving him you know another half foot of space as well just shots up a two for sure all right so Yeah we're GONNA call there. I mean look our deepest condolences or obviously going out to Vanessa the entire Bryant family. Everyone everyone the Lakers Lakers organization N._B._A.. In general but Yeah that's we'll we'll you'll hear from us a little bit later this week..

"They kept the Lakers in the series. It was almost two. WHOA and he gets that huge shot at the end of game to to send it back to Detroit one one? That's an all time shot in the finals again it. It's unfairly early forgotten because of the way his three four and five went but that was an iconic shot. And you know He. He had so so many you know by the time Lebron became you know marquee attraction by a second year in every time Lebron and Kobe played it was the event event They played on Christmas and they played on On what Luther King Day or they played on Christmas or they played in a very marquee event. I mean I spent I think three or four Christmases in L. A.. Because it was like Lebron plays coby on Christmas Day. And those are the pageantry of those games and I've said this many times and I just don't believe I was just talking to somebody about this yesterday because you know the Brown was passing passing him scoring wise. They played in every single finals from two thousand seven to two thousand eighteen. Eleven eleven straight files. One of the two of them were in and they never met and the game was worse for it. Was it was a historic near-miss miss really if you think about it. It's the only combination that we didn't get the possible you know star versus stars East versus West You know it's really the the only one that we didn't get and you know Brian. You mentioned the big event. It was even when they met in regular season but remember even especially early on they. They didn't live up to the hype in Kobe. But get hurt or missed a game. I remember he has relaunched or two year. Kobe seat is right now. You got hurt hurt. That hurt in that game. I can the first theat or something. Yeah and his right shoulder hanging off and he points a couple left handed jumpers first before he comes on it came out. I think I think you're the second or third year air. Kobe sprained his ankle in the game. I think there were two of the first times they played coby got hurt in the game. I'll tell the story now. Now now the he has passed away. I'll break the confidence So remember we talked about Brian. You might have gotten to quote where Lebron's had a quote where he said he just doesn't have that instinct to go out and kill. Everybody liked Kobe. Does you remember that. But I think you're along those lines. I don't know if that was the exact quote but but he expressed some some I. I'm not I don't know how he said it but it was something along those lines. Yeah like I don't have that same desire to you. Just go out and everybody. Kobe does and I I asked coli about it. I said that close in the Ron and commits again. He said I can't believe he would actually say that out loud Kobe was stunned. You know like I think I understood that you know maybe not. Everybody thought the same way he. You did But he just couldn't believe that you would say that out loud and say it on the record so about a week. After that Choline I had a little discussion The Lakers played the cavs. And it was certainly in the midst of the whole Lebron's not clutch debate. You know whatever you WANNA call it That was raging pretty high. Obviously pre-championships and I think Lebron misses two free throws something happens at the end. You know. Lebron Lebron has a chance and does not come through in the clutch and Walking out of the locker room Kobe said it co remember that conversation we had about the last week and he said Yeah I said. Do you think I came into play tonight. Yeah so you know. That was a little sense of the rivalry. I think I think they came to appreciate each other. I think you know I think Kobe Salt Lebron's go through it and work his way and suffer the pain and and you know. Make that slow. Low climb to the mountaintop and I. I think we came to appreciate that as well and I think Lebron appreciated Kobe In particular when they were in Beijing together are on the On the Olympic team and Brian you cover that team right I really relied on Kobe in crunch time right. And you know all the greatness. He wasn't the best player on a theme but he was the guy that they went to the gold medal. Game when they add against I think Lebron probably had the better tournament but koby absolutely brought home the gold with that that fourth quarter and I don't think they were particularly close at all. I think they kept a distance. I think it was competitive. Not just in basketball but where member is you know. When the bride came out of high school he gets US hundred million dollar shoe contract and coby had done had done this contract with Adidas where he did it come out of high school and it was good money at the time? He was a seven year contract for like the thirteenth picker. Whatever but it turned out to not not be a very good contract because he was getting underpaid and so he actually bought his way out of the contract with Adidas with like zone? Money paid them back money so he become a shoe free agent and he was a three time champion and pretty much of the top of of the of the game at that point Jordan had retired and he got forty million in his shoe hill. The prime got sixty million dollars more than Kobe when he switched over from Adidas to Nike and I think there was a rivalry with that one of the things. People always remember those puppet commercials that they did Where the the two puppets would portray betray Kobe and Lebron and even when those were running I thought? Isn't it amazing that they have these two hundred contracts or paying them tens of millions of dollars but they're not actually putting them in in commercials together. I don't think they really wanted to be like playing opposite each other and commercial so I mean the puppets they could sort of make them say whatever they wanted and they could act to sort of a caricature so it was you know and they both had sort of equal time where they showed up the other one. Good luck getting Kobe. To agree to a scene where Lebron showed him up on anything scripted or not and so I think that there was a distance between them. You know they only play go twice. AC Year and and they never play in the playoffs. Or whatever. And I do think after and it wasn't just in two thousand eight. They played together on three different Olympic teams. I'm sorry two different Olympic Teams in one team. I think they didn't Kobe. Play in the two thousand seventeen to qualify for the Olympics. I think he so. We've had the definite twenty twelve. What I thought was interesting in twenty twelve? The London Olympics was by then. Kobe realized that you know the Bron- and Durant ah kind of passed him by in terms of you know their abilities in the game and he took it upon himself to be the spokesman for that to remember stories about like you know. Could this team beat the Dream Team and you know of course Michael Jordan. You know really dismissed. All that and Kobe would go back in Michael Jordan and I remember one of their games in other tuneup games in Las Vegas. You know I I asked about that. And and he was the spokesman and he was saying we beat them and he said I'm going to win a series but like we get a game plan after we could be put up on their. You know for forty minutes and forty eight minutes and we can beat those guys and I said cool. You're kind of afraid. He says my nose. I'm a bad M effort. So that was that was like the beginning of his his adjustment into the role that I loved in his latter years so after he was really no longer continue for Champs but actually enjoyed that version. Koby the best in terms of talking to him because you know he had great perspective. He was very outspoken. was very available available to talk to and could just share everything from going against Michael going against Lebron into the historical perspective. The league all that you know and that's the version that you have for most of your time in La was the best version of copy especially those luke last year. I mean first of all. Let's get back to two thousand eight Olympics. That was so important for Kobe. Bryant in my estimation a gave him a connection to the rest of the league that he didn't have before they let him have the taste of winning that he had lacked for for years. You know two thousand four finals ends up. Being the thing that breaks up the Kobe shack team he gets back. There in two thousand and eight gets embarrassed in Boston guarded and that series. But you know he goes to Beijing. USA They say basketball reasserts its dominance. Kobe Bryant reasserts his his persona as a winner. And I think is reminded that it's really worth to devote yourself totally to this. This craft this child sport. That the way you have been you got a little bit of a payoff. That fueled the better team side of Kobe that we saw on the Kobe. Power years when he got two more rings. And you know that was so important I think to go Kobe. In just the little moments we would have covered covering him on a day to day basis and it was it was always a challenge. I became the face of ESPN's ESPN'S NBA rank. And you know I've said this before I was never really huge fan of that project to begin with because it's an aggregation of a lot of different people's rankings things rather and we only rank certain amount of players whatever but Kobe at one point was ranked twenty fifth. And you know he was still in his mind Kobe Bryant and and he wrote me in in public settings for it. Because I'm the ESPN. I come around and my website saying he's only twenty fifth best player on the planet. And how can that be possible. I love that stuff. You know it meant that you cared. It meant that he understood. Our jobs meant that he paid attention to everything You know someone who sweat the small stuff someone who does that myself. Personally I see no problem with it works Kobe Bryant and worked for other people well and I Dunno it's we shouldn't be talking about him in the past it doesn't feel right actually not put it in the past tense I it's funny 'cause I've thought about you. Know recapping him but just in terms of you know as we look back on his career not as we look back on his life right You know I think we all have these these memories and anecdotes but you know we thought we'd been uncorking them as you know from from almost like at this weekend day when when Lebron is passing him and that's one of the things that just makes it extra tragic is.

I was unaware that was the best that would be very nice. My big thanks to eighty Bryant for a great conversation sation season two of her show Shrill Premiers January twenty fourth on Hulu and I'm joined now on the Sunday. Sit Down podcast by the producer of the Sunday. Sit Down podcast Maggie law hanging really and the producer of the interview with Eighty Bryant for Sunday today. Brittany Mania Hybrid I think it's fair to say all three of US came into this as eighty Bryant fans. Definitely I like most people I know grew up loving. SNL L.. So I still have that soft spot in my heart and there's something about her Brit a think is especially great. I think she's just such a funny natural comedian. She's like Kate McKinnon this way too. And there's a reason they're so good together but that if if eighties in the sketch you can even if the sketches and working she will bring something out out and be funny yeah. She's definitely like character comedian. Yeah I don't know just heightens the skits. Yeah so I think it's only fair that. Go around the table Shar okay. And let's say our favorite eighty Bryant character. Maggie you I I would say my favorite eighty Bryant sketch is The Halloween girls night out Halloween. I'm not sure if you're familiar with girls dressed up as the mice and then flash to four AM and As a young woman in New York City I would say I've experienced Halloween bat accurate. I just it. It was our missing ocean the running make up the whiskers currently falling down. The face. Yours are a little askew for yelling at your friend just just wanting to go home. No more acute fees for I am just Hungary and looking for some pizza captured accurate acids. That's okay. That's good to know Britney watchers I love the eighty little eighty baby but also implore you to watch the Cardi B. an eighty. ABC's get if you have not already. She basically is inspired by Cardi's confidence and sort of takes on and becomes Cardi for a week. It was the week that Cardi was hosting the musical guests. And she's just really funny to see her. Have all that you know unchecked confidence. She's so good at that I anything with with eighty and Kate Mckinnon works for me and I do mean anything again. The sketch the script could be not great but the two of them together always makes me laugh. The recent one last asphalt where they had they run the apple orchard where they say for just ten dollars. No sorry for only forty five dollars. You can go home with ten dollars. Lurs worth of apples. I love that one but my favorite is smoker farms. Where it's the two of them and they come on weekend update and they run a farm and they have the actual Meknes basket? The premise of it is like don't feel bad for animals. There's this movement like animals we fall in love with them and social media. Videos goes and they're so cute and save the kid and all that she said we we assure you that these are dumb bad deserve their fate but they also have like like real meat out there. So part of the gag as it goes is that they just reeks unsaid and Colin is like moving his chair. Away it's fantastic. But she gets me with anything she does Why found most moving though Brittany was the way she talked about shrill as not just that character but as a way to tell her own story? Yeah yes she was very candid. which was touching But yeah she was drawn to the project because she saw herself in the the the main character she related to a lot of the shuttle she was going to. It's a gem of show to take one of those. I think where I season. Maybe not everybody saw it with people hear about it and they're like Oh Brian SNL. I think she's going to get big pickup. That's my precursors interesting to how she was saying that she was inspired by it and she was interested the NASA she told her agent. You can call with banks and they're like actually she just called looking for you. Yeah yeah she's awesome. She can do it it all and this is a great breakout for her. She's also you know it was like what's your next big move she's like I don't know I'm on. SNL The show. I always wanted to be on. That's a pretty good move. And now I have this other other shows that I love and have a hand on executive produce writing got a and so. She's I feel like she's doing all the things she wants to do. Serve accepting new challenges as they come. She's not like strategizing. I need to be in a blockbuster. I also love how they all for each other. Whether it's her kate sesame thessaly all the the women in particular. SNL genuinely or psyched for each other and learn to saying that Lerman's very encouraging this project uh-huh sketch.

"bryant" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist

"Vanessa was my friend and then she got hired to SNL. And I was like Oh my God someone I know Who loved is now on SNL? I was like Oh this is much closer than I thought and I think that like kind of woke me up and made me like okay. I got to work a little harder and like I I WANNA be ready for if they ever come to see my shower audition or whatever and they did a Dang David Dain did Lorne michaels himself. Dang in did watch you know. He was in the audience that they told us he was an audience which I was glad we do a lot of like a sexy audience participation action and it would be a nightmare to like sir. Do you have a you know like I would not be able to handle it. I guess that's probably smart to ask him for a suggestion. Gestion hold your future. His hands improbably. So what was that first phone. Call like just for the audition once you come to New York and audition personnel. You're full panic and fear and I mean so excited couldn't believe it and I was sort of relieved because they had seen a two through our second city show that I had worked really hard on and I had really fun pieces in and so I was like okay. They've seen what I like to do. So if that's what they liked and they want want me to do that I can do more of that. You know in New York. So that's I kind of took stuff from that show and made a five minute audition to do most people. I've talked to ban that's an else that they barely remember it because first of all it was like I can't believe I'm here for like five minutes flies by. I don't even know if it was good or anything I'm unhappy. I got a chance to audition for US pure stress. I couldn't eat or sleep. Could only rehearse my audition over and over again so stress. How did you feel like it went when he walked out of there? Well I remember people had said no one will laugh laugh and then I got some little laugh since I was like ooh Baby on top of the world. I my dressing present home but I was also like it's over now while what a joy that was like. I got to audition industrial. He doesn't l and then I got called to come back into a second audition and they were like can you do own their stuff and I was like Oh yeah I have that ready to flip the bullpen and obviously that one went well. So what's the what's that final phone call like eighty to join the cast is actually more often S. and and he sort of said like will. You're very young and you have a lot to learn. But I think he'll do very well here and and I was like that mean. Come here now or what's going to happen. And then I hugged him left. The office hugged producer. Still was like am I hired. I have no idea and then I got a phone call from the producer that was like. Did you know you're hired. I don't think you knew when it was like. Yeah I don't know I'm so scared and I didn't WanNa ask laughing again because I've heard that story her mother they don't know what did I just get hired. And then someone else called caused Tulsa little. Yeah he's leaving it on the fence or something that you were. You were twenty five right when he started very young. was that a daunting thing to walk in there. Twenty five years old into this institution owned dislike ready for it. I mean I was really scared but I came came to find out that I was really lucky that I had had like solid years in Chicago. Doing shows every night of the week for all different kinds of audiences so I really knew myself self as a performer. And that was like something to hold onto where I was like. I knew it. I'm good ed and I know how to get an audience on my side or if I'm losing them where to push and I just felt strong in that area even if I didn't always feel like I was doing a good job or writing things that would fit on the show I was like I do think I am. I'm good you're you are by the way I don't WanNa leave you hanging on that one. So when did you feel like okay. I'm here because I know that first year they're gonNA fire me at the end of the year. When did you feel like I've got a job here? This is going pretty well. You're like no I definitely I would see my third or fourth season my second season. I'm starting to feel like okay. We started writing those girl music videos. I was like okay. This feels like something they are working. And then I feel like my third or fourth season I was like okay. I'm not getting fired. And now what do I WANNA do. Now that I'm here you know which was fun. Take a lot of trill. Obviously you've got your own clothing line colleen. What was the genesis back? That's so cool. It really was sort of like like out of necessity at first. which was I was having to do? Appearances or presser red carpet or whatever and wasn't exactly finding like options in the plus list size world that were for more like high quality like what my co stars were getting to wear and so my stylist and a friend of mine in kind of just started like making our own stuff just for me to wear and then I would get so much response from girls online being like I love that work and get it and I was like you can't and I made it with my friends and this is like not fair and then I sort of saw this path of like. Oh well there's a factory here and maybe we could just take Gar same pattern and make a couple of the US and see if anybody wants them and it was very nice they did so and the response has been great. It's been so cool and really like so special to be tagged and pictures of ladies wearing these dresses and them feeling good and like hitting the streets right. Is that a cool thing for you. I mean I think we kind of happened by accident. I would put trill in this bucket to of like becoming sort of an icon for people who've gone through what you've gone through and your life and sharing experience with someone they can look to in the popular culture and say. That's so nice I I don't know I don't think of myself that way but if I I am helping anyone that is the dream you know. And and it's weird. I got in to doing this because I love comedy and I love writing and I love performing and pretty quickly. I realized that people were seeing me for more than that. which was like what my body represented to them? I'm or or how it made them feel good to see someone who looks like them like doing this thing and I just always sort of felt like rather than pushing against that I I should just let that be part of embracing. Yeah totally because it is a part of me and it and it did take some work on myself to be like. I do deserve to be here. You know it isn't that sort of the point of shrill that's the show right. I mean that is the show and it is so much drawn from like my own feelings feelings of feeling like a nice to everyone and I work really hard. Is that enough or or or what matters here you know is it liberating to have shrill out there and be like. This is how I've been feeling my whole life. You should know how I've been feeling this year. Yes it is. It is what's overwhelming to me is how many women you have said. They felt exactly the same way and not not all plus size women all kinds of women and that has been like extremely satisfying so touching attaching to to feel like they feel seen by this name. You said are a little bit earlier. You're happy. SNL We're really looking even for shriller everything else. Do you think you're still young. Started so young. And that's a now. Do you think about other things over the horizon like okay. Now I'm GONNA do movies. I'm GonNa do all these other things things and make that my next step even they're not a good schemer. I like really kind of take things as it comes. And that's been working for me uh-huh far we're like things pop up but I I love to write and I wrote a movie with my friend and of course I've looked to make that but I've got a very a bad schedule where I'm like you know doing. SNL and shooting shrill in the summers and writing shrill. And so you know. I'm of course I'm excited to do more forever. I think for. Now you're doing pretty well. Starve elster shrill. Get your own clothing line. Let's just be happy right here. Taken Nassar pushed you to do more more like yeah but what else. Stick around to hear more from Eighty Bryant on the Sunday. Sit Down podcast including what it's like to grow up watching. SNL and then to end up as one of its stars. Welcome back to the Sunday. Sit Down podcast now.

"Hey Guys Willie geist here with another episode of The Sunday. Sit Down podcasts. My thanks as always for clicking and listening along really excited to bring you our gets this week. SNL CAST member now in her eighth season. The hilarious eighty Bryant. She has been funny since I think the moment she got got on the show in two thousand twelve. She came in with a class that includes Kate McKinnon longtime buddies. Now they share an office together at Thirty Rockefeller Center Jenner. We're sitting right now. They write together in that tiny little office. They laughed together. They cry about their MOMS together. As you'll hear in this interview eighty the Brings US some of the best characters on the show for my money. Little Baby Eighty perhaps her best known in those snl digital shorts that started the superstar females females of SNL talker. Bell is another favourite. She of course played Sarah Huckabee Sanders the former White House press secretary and Meghan McCain on the view so we get into all of it with SNL. She grew up in Phoenix watching the show. Loving cast members like Sharyo Terry and Molly Shannon. She got into theater camp than she did. A little Improv camp. She moved to Chicago for College. She got Involved at Second City the famed theatre group that has produced so many snl stars and she was often running at twenty five years old. Landed her job on. SNL So we'll talk through that audition and everything about SNL but also getting getting into the second season of her show shrill on Hulu which is deeply personal show for her. She's the executive producer. She's the writer and the star of Shrill it's based on a bestselling memoir and it deals a lot with body image. Something you'll hear in our conversation that eighty has dealt with for most of her life and something she still deals with today. But you'll talk about the moment when she realized she didn't need to think about it the way she'd been thinking about it her whole life. It's a really really funny show. But it's also a touching show. She's great in it so eighty and I got together a couple of weeks ago when Scarlett Johansson was hosting SNL and Nile Horan formerly of one direction fame was the musical guest Scarlet obviously is engaged to Colin Jost head writer of the show Oh and also the host of weekend update so Scarlett has done the show a bunch. She's a vet. She knows how it works inside and out so eight and I kind of talked about what week was gonna look like in the process and we got together at a diner called big daddy's diner here in New York City We're seeing a booth just to paint the picture for you and it's not a classic New York Diner. Sort of kitschy diner. Think Bright Colors old seventies action figures lunchboxes from your a youth. Just a lot of crap around if I'm being honest. Good kitschy crap so here now from big daddy's diner is eighty bryant eighty. Thanks for doing this my pleasure her usual spot yeah. This is our our spots. I dressed for it perfect. You're very matching matching with our wallpaper. Hey we were just talking about. SNL On this being a show week. You're so I think a lot of curiously process. No Monday through the pitch day where the host comes in never been meets the host of the UK the host of this this week scarlet scarlet. And then what happens. Today we're sitting together on Tuesday. What was the rest of the week? Look by Tuesday is like it's writing a kind of all it is so we'll basically you'll kind of right different sketches all night long and each one could take a different amount of time so it just really depends but most people go home around four or five. Most of the writers. Don't go. Oh yeah an all night and they Most of the writers don't go home they sleep there and then work all day Wednesday Bahasa Twenty four hour shift. It ends up being that way. Yeah so like from your point of view today sweep like what are you coming in with like wh. What's your new so stressed? It shouldn't be here. I should be thinking. No I mean it's different every week. I don't know sometimes I try to just have like a kernel of an idea. Did that might even just be like a character's attitude or like a location or something and then you kind of sit with a writer and talk through what what do you think and could the hosts do and you know just trying to serve them and figure it out right now. What does that balance? Because I've heard different cast member say different things over the years of like a host of comes with a lot of ideas okay. That one's good focus on one that you think I mean it's funny because I feel like that mostly falls too like the producers to kind of talk them through or writing supervisors and then sometimes people will get like an assigned someone the hosts idea because they might have an idea and then it's like I'm rarely going to be the one to like. Make that happen for them. You know but But still kind of just. It depends on Wednesday. Then do you have a pretty good sense of basically what's GonNa be in the show after you read through it at the table and you say that work. That didn't work. It's really hard to predict because we read like forty sketches at the table. Read and then when it's done we have about an hour hour and a half where we're sitting waiting. While the producers who served in the host star in a meeting like picking and of course that time is all of us being like this'll get in that will get in or whatever but it it is. There's so many other factors at play like. Does the host have to change out of something into something really quickly. How can how can that work? Well then we probably can't do the sketch or even like locations in the studio like you can't have four things in a row at home base so one sketch might be out because it there's so so many factors so at least that's what I tell myself l. They'll geography logistics against. Oh Gosh I don't think people realize is it home. If you've ever been to see US alive the minute you guys go to commercial break. It's an all out rent Donna and wardrobes grabbing. Somebody's hand they're going going into a curtain two sets of changing. It's total chaos. Even though you guys come back from break and look like you've been cool all the time. The only time I ever feel like an athlete they shared off and like I think this is. What do people do race? Sounds so this is your season season. Do you still get that rush. That high at eleven thirty on Saturday night when the opening sketch starts and then you hear the the famous music. I'm so I I do. I still really love it and I would say I'm war. Get a rush like the band. When I hear the music of the opening opening credits I still remember how I felt the first time I heard like my name in the credits and that is insane and I don't know I also like I always feel overwhelmed when like there's a sketch that's really hard to execute and we mail it? You know that those are like especially invigorating. Now that I've been there so Dang when you started eight seasons ago would you've ever dreamed that you'd be sitting here with talking about your eight season on. SNL and one of the the stars of the show. And also I mean my whole first season I was just convinced I was going to be fired the whole year and was crying all the time thing. This this is it. It's over now so it's so nice to be their intake. You'll really comfortable there which I kind of never thought I would. Yes you know you. You guys put you in Kate incessantly their group of of women in particular I think on the show who were like really the heart of the show I think so as a huge fan the end of the show forever and ever and ever you have the thing. Where if you're in the sketch and I would say this about Kristen? Wig Will Ferrell and Chris Farley. It's going to be good evening because even if it's not even if the sort of the idea doesn't work you're going to react in some way or we're going to deliver something to kind of save it What do you think we hear? People say like Eighty Bryant is one of the stars of SNL like she's she'd kate or the stars of bad I mean that's super super overwhelming and insane and I also just like it doesn't feel true to me still like I feel very like keeping the ultimate like you know I dunno Orlyk Fred or the people started with and felt really like in always But I don't know it's so overwhelming because again I really well growing up. It just felt incredibly far for me because I'm like from Arizona not a Hollywood town and I don't know said now to be there. I have some normalcy to it is bizarre. Yeah yes well it's true I mean you guys are I think that the heart of the show and you sort of made see the point of doing like the girl group videos do you have that sense of sort of empowerment with your group of women on the show and I think like at least for me. It was just like a survival tactic. In the beginning I was like oh I feel like I'd rather do something with my friend alone or my friends or just felt stronger together kind of thing things and so I feel like we kind of started writing from that place of like. I love doing bits with Kate and we share an office. Let's write something you you know those kinds of things like it just kind of happens naturally but it is like it's so much easier to do something with the POW. Wow and to be able to look in their eyes doesn't like I trust you so that's kind of how it started but then it was just like fun so the US. Kate Sharon office. Yeah that I think that comes across the show to when it's just the two of you doing the smoker at the update day like you guys have sort of an unspoken thing where again. It's going to be good if the two of you are in there did you. Yeah no her before the show or not at all we were just hired the same year and we really hit it off really quickly and I think we both are kind of like quiet. Dorks a work really hard you know are like care a lot and so we. We just found it very quickly. What's it like in that office when the two of your bouncing ideas each other I think people probably imagine our office is to be very fun? But it's actually a lot of us like quietly talking about how much we care about our mothers like quietly talking about our can earn deep deep worries. But that's very bonding to so it's not just a big. Yuck fest no I mean it is a lot of the time and like we. We just just did a sketch last week. That was sort of us like trying to kill each other. That just came out of us like joking around doing that. So so you've got the the the big headline famous characters that you do a little baby. Sure Right yes. We're.

"bryant" Discussed on The Right Time with Bomani Jones

"The only gives us four stars. I'm inclined to believe you are hater. It's Thursday that's when we do our interviews typically now joining us. He is the author of full distant. Isn't IT industries yet. We ought to check it out. I wrote a blurb for it and everything versus espn his name is Howard Bryant and Howard. You know how was your weekend end. We was hanging out in your town. What are your towns in Atlanta asking you for directions where I was going from? flowery branch down to Riverdale tail trying to track down this Colin Kaepernick Saga from sanctioned. NFL workout up at the Falcons facility down to solo workout independent. Didn't work out down at the Charles R drew high school in Riverdale. It was quite a weekend. I think there's a level to this that people who don't really know Atlanta Dude. I stay so they had this flowery branch. That's that's in Hall County That's way out north. These were basically people was renting from us. That's where they ran. You know what I'm saying. And did they Howard Selby that. This is in a place called Riverdale at. Did you tell me the high school is called Charles drew. I'm like Oh first of all you've you've got traffic boondoggle to navigate and number. Two at is a completely different part of town and demographics in every way than it is for flowery branch house. Good luck with twenty bobble now when brother and his show but I made good time actually got there in time it it all worked out and so did the committed people who I saw a lot of people who were at both fans who were at both locations. who were that interested in? Seeing this thing take place it was a fascinating weekend to be honest of dueling statements and then you changes changes and the requisite mistrust that has existed between Colin Kaepernick and the National Football League for coming up on three full years now. At at the end of the day I took a different position and a lot of people took my position was was that no matter how we got there are no matter. How vague out there? There was a workout that there is now footage. There is now fifty. Eight minutes of watching Colin Kaepernick. Drop atkin throw passes. There are other folks who took the position that this was the last Straw in a drama that Colin Kaepernick has in a lot of ways brought on himself that he had an opportunity to work out at a National Football League facility in front of Twenty five evaluators all yours and decided to let minor details. That could've been resolved. Stand in the way of what they seem to consider to be his last chance. That word opportunity -tunities weaponized. Isn't it right. That's what I feel. I feel like when people watch this stuff and when they talk about it they feel like all of this kind of shakes out like movie where you got your Crib and you dream of being a singer. Something like that and somebody gives you a chance to audition. You know you only got one shot. Do not miss your chance to blow and then you go in there and it like you do this except we're dealing with a professional here right exactly and I think what's been fascinating about this for me especially when you're on the ground and when you're on the ground you're you were with the people as Colin would say and you recognize that lake so many important moments in like so many important people. Are we talking about him or are we talking about us and so much of what we're dealing with here is the way that Colin represents people and that works in all kinds of different areas. I mean this works flowery branch. There were three protesters waiting for Colin. And I got there five hours before the workout was supposed to begin. Got There at ten o'clock in the morning. There was one guy with a sign that said Colin Kaepernick. un-american loser get out of my hi town then there was another guy who didn't have a sign but he was standing in front of fuel mini American flags that another protester had planted in another sign that said stand for the flag and that guy wanted to make it very clear that he made a distinction between him and the other two guys. The other two guys were simply anti-catholic people this guy says no no no. I'm a libertarian. I simply just want more respect for the flag itself. Plenty of respect for Colin Kaepernick. I'm not one of those is two guys even though he was standing on the same side of them and what was interesting about it too. Is that the guy who held the sign about being a loser. Wanted to go across the street and drop his donuts off into his car. But the libertarian guy was like Nahmad. I can't hold you sign up for you because I don't believe in that so I'm like this is interesting and then across the street there were two you Colin Kaepernick. Supporters was a white kid who was wearing a Red Cabinet Jersey and the other was an African American man who was I'm sitting in a lawn chair and when you started talking to people you could tell that. So much of what cabinet men was a projection of their values of what they see it really. It wasn't about necessarily his ability to play or not play in the NFL. It went back to what you were saying about this idea of reaching for the stars. And we're doing you a favor and the whole thing and Dan in the aftermath of this the NFL pro and against community has really taken that position as well. We're doing you a favor. We gave you a shot to be here and then Colin Kaepernick of course has taken the position that hey I don't have to bag because I am a professional and I went to a super bowl. I've played at the highest level level in your league. And why must you break me in order for me to play in your sport. Yeah I saw you make that point on I take And by the way. Isn't that counterintuitive for Libertarian. To try to make fealty to the flag compulsory right like isn't that opposite of what they do. You grab. Grab me if I'm wrong here. It does defy a little bit of luck. I'm just saying like I thought I thought if I got this wrong I got this wrong. I thought they was fighting for your right to smoke weed or front of the flag if you want to but you know not meet understand you mentioned something about the crowd and the people that turned out to seek happening and I was curious about that too just who was going mean to be invested enough to show up at the facility before we even knew about the high school and what that would be because I heard people talk about this overall being a circus and and you can say that the whole process was a circus but it sounds like outside. The place wasn't really a circus was it was a gathering and there's a huge difference between a gathering service and when I said when I got there there were five people. There who weren't media to anti one libertarian and to supporters. So it was it was a tie. To and one abstaining. I suppose and then by noontime. There was one hundred people. They're all supporting cabinet. Opener and cabinet goes a cap in as fraternities go and so I guess the CAP is sent out the e mail blast well because they all came out and they were in full force and I guess word also went out to the motorcycle club. The Atlanta slingshots little three wheel motorcycles. They came coming out like it was a car. Show okay and that was wild out there and so by the time by one o'clock two o'clock rolled around one hundred hundred and twenty-five people supporting capper Nick and you had those same three protesters on the other side and what was really interesting about it too. was that it wasn't a circus. They were all talking to each other and they were talking about each other's views and talking about Elizabeth Warren and her wealth tax. And so that's what I meant about this being sort of a litmus test a referendum for what it meant to be an American and how Americans viewed where they were and where Colin Kaepernick fit in that and it also made me think of something else. If one hundred twenty five people had showed up anti capture. Nick that would have led the news that would have been V story and then those people when they went down to Atlanta when the venue was changed another two hundred people were down there and and I was thinking if that were the case. If those two hundred people were also anti-catholic this would have been all over the news. This would have been the new cycle. It would have been crus- at the NFL NFL simply could not take the risk of being around cabinet. But because they were supporters. Nobody has talked about it. And no one has allowed that to be an asset found on that fascinating and very very telling. Yeah I thought the same thing and I saw when you would made the point And coming around. I was thinking about this. That the my contention is it's always been that people would have gotten over this right like this end stretched out in the time period that he did people like the idea that the fans just won't tolerate this I watched a fan. Dan Base rapids arms around Michael Vick after he was out here fighting them dolls right. Like I totally opened my eyes as to the compartmentalization the people are probably going to be willing to make gone these matters. And I haven't seen any actual evidence of all this content like I know there are people obviously like death threats and stuff like that that exists. But it doesn't seem seemed to me like the people who support the NFL or whatever are nearly as invested in this is the people who supported Colin Kaepernick or the people who work for the NFL NFL or cover the NFL. No doubt about that because one they're only three people out for five hours. Actually there were three people on the other side who were against him. There were all all kinds of people who are invested for him and once again. When you're talking about that Community Hall County Seventy four percents? Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen. Exactly it wasn't like like this wasn't a politically hostile environment for people. Who View Colin Kaepernick sympathetically? I think you're right and I think what ends up happening and we go back to if you think about vic you had peter out there and they were very upset about this. I think that those supporters and those protesters those anti vic protesters that lost a little bit of their own sort of optimism about the power of protests and got a firsthand lesson in the power of the NFL. Because I think those anti vic protesters were out there for about three three and a half weeks and then it was like yeah. Nobody cares and life went on and Michael Vick became an excellent quarterback with the Philadelphia Eagles. Michael came in Kevin. COBB got a concussion in that first game vic second a second season there Michael Vick Kebe. They're lit it up and it was like what dogs we all have to move. All forgiveness is divine and and that's the key and so my question when I've been asking about this and I just got off the phone with the NFL earlier this morning had a forty five minute conversation with them. Discussing the details of what happened over the weekend and how this fell apart and if you listen to what they're you're saying they believed that this was an opportunity and that they didn't see any cynicism maybe obviously we don't believe it based on the history because because nobody had called let me scenario at the cabinet people believe they got rushed they got rushed it into being forced to say something that they got a two hour window. Last Tuesday here it is. You got between eleven at one o'clock to agree to this. Take it or leave it. It's going to be Saturday in Atlanta. Be there or be square and they took that as being sort of muscle than intimidated and rushed in that. You have all of these different details. You've got these two sides. Hides that have all this history in. There's no way we can make a smart deal in two hours.
