Big Tech Funds a Think Tank Pushing for Fewer Rules. For Big Tech.
"Dig. Tech firms are schmoozing regulators into to not doing their jobs. Thirty four anti-trust officials were wined and nine last year by the global anti-trust into the suit, a part of the Antonin Scalia Law School at George. Mason University in Fairfax Virginia basically don't regulate us. Please enjoy this delicious meal. Global Antitrust Institute is funded mostly entirely by big companies affiliated foundations including Amazon Google qualcomm George Mason I covered it when I was at the Washington, Post they were always doing this kind of thing like putting up, you know. Being very friendly to corporate corporate citizens as I recall during this time when they were just getting started. Trying to attract a bigger level of professor there and so talk about this Mr Academics in terms of these things that get funded at universities, you institute Scott. Galloway Institute of Jabal Thank for example. That's right. like it's it's were. Universities are not immune from the lure of capitalism and a big component of. Your ability to get tenure is to get research funded, and it's difficult if you WANNA know. If. You WanNa. Know the outcome and a conclusion of research. Just find who's paid for it. Yeah, and in the case of most academic research. It's a lot of times it's funded. By nonpartisan sources are the university itself, and so if there is a a lease bad version of peer reviewed research, you're GONNA. Find it typically universities, but these think tanks if they're funded by. Certain And we have him on the left care we fund. We found groups to do research to basically support our know our narrative so i. don't think this is anything unusual. The question is abound power in that is. In addition to this think tank Sarah now more fulltime Amazon. Lobbyists making I would bet somewhere between four hundred eight hundred thousand dollars a year. Then there are sitting US senators now one hundred full time lobbyist from Amazon living in DC, taking all of these nice women and men to to golf into dinner and saying hey, we just a big fan of your leadership. We fight to get involved in your campaign by the way when this whole antitrust off comes up. We assume that you're you're for capitalism. Your four consumer lower consumer prices. And this is the danger, but I don't think these think tanks. We have on both sides nervous now whenever I time talking to one today and I was like Oh, where did you get your money? Like I never thought this like in terms of. The university and I was like I'm going to have to check in case, I'm. Saying something that sounded reasonable, but it was sort of like who's paying your bills and you know there was some controversy around some of this Kobe testing of where these these researchers have, it just feels like a lot of steph feels. Bogus like. It feels bogus when they're doing this and they're trying to influence, but I think many some universities are doing real research. Others are much more pay for play and I think that's that's really when I was a does. You've inspired her synapse farmer talking about this when I was? Five years into my Nyu Kerr invited me to a meeting where they were talking about doing some research about around financial markets and the impact on IPO's and They admitted meeting. And there was someone from the Nasdaq, and they were willing to fund it Funds Research and fund even fund center, and as one of the guys in the meeting Professor Bruce Buchanan who I think's one of the clear blue flame thinking economists in the world you know at the end of the meeting, said a not comfortable with the Nasdaq taking money. Money from the Nasdaq for research around the financial markets, because ultimately we're. GonNa end up saying that that the Nasdaq has the right you know. He just wasn't comfortable with private enterprise being injected into academic research, and then the meeting ended and I was like what the hell are you thinking? We have an opportunity to go great research here. Don't so pedantic. And as I've thought about it I'm wrong and he was right. Yeah, you can't help it. You can't help, but if they're paying for like all the smoking ones so much damage in terms of like smoking wants. We're like cigarettes aren't bad. That went on for a long time and Whatever the whatever the research is, it just seems like if it's cooked, it's cooked then. How do you pay for like the university should presumably just pay. Pay For right and live and die on the quality of the research, but that's sort of naive. I suspect you in the majority of about any sort of fifteen year overdue apology to a Professor Buchanan Vice. Chancellor Ingo Walter felt the same way that this was just. This creates too much opportunity for bias research so anyways. Net Net in it's a sample size of one, but Nyu takes that got role being a neutral arbiter very seriously. and. You have these funding you know. I'm thinking of all the different organizations are they seem like the like their criminal justice stuff Very Friedman! It feels like it's really good research right now, and that's the thing it's like who you have. They should at least be very clear about who's paying for it, so you know and and what they might turf. What what the what reports they might put in the drawer like the government is doing right now,

Supreme Court throws out Louisiana abortion restrictions
"Been talking to Stephen Black professor at the University of Texas Law School about the decision today We're a divided Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana law that opponents said would have left the state with only one abortion clinic. Chief Justice John Roberts provided the crucial vote during the court's liberal justices in a 5 to 4 majority. So Justice Stephen Breyer, who also wrote the majority opinion in the Texas Case, wrote the majority opinion here did he reiterated his reasoning in the Texas case, or did he just follow precedent? No American. I think a lot of the plurality of him by the prior was very much not just reiterating what he wrote for the majority four years ago in the home of health case, but also do not carefully trying to explain why that decision for your so should control the case. Why the Louisiana line is not in any material way. Actually, or legally different fromthe law that the court threw out in Texas four years ago. If I can, you know for Brier, the queue is to show why these cases are not the similar And you know, I don't get you. Justice. Roberts actually agreed with that. I think you just agreed with the endorsement of the analysis from the earlier decision on hold and help if that's why he felt obliged and compelled to write separately. What was the thread running through the dissenting opinions? What's interesting about this case is, you know if you read the sentinel opinions that actually very little tune about roar, Casey and a whole lot about standing, you know, I think for the defenders, the ground they were hoping in this case would be resolved on Was that the abortion providers June Medical Services, etcetera weren't proper parties. The challenge Louisiana long the first place that would have allowed the court sidestep a major ruling on the stuff into scope of the right to pursue a pre viability abortion. But of course, there were consequences all his own indignant much harder for a court to hear these kinds of pieces going forward, so No, I think for the dissenters for justice Promise Justice Alito. The quarters from Kavanaugh know there at least stated opposition here with principally to the court allow in this case to reach America at all. I suspect June that that no one will be surprised if no. Were those marriage to be properly before them. They just hostile to them that know the descent maybe focus on stand them, but I think it's not hard to imagine that there are objections on the merits behind them as well. So during his confirmation hearings, Justice Cavanaugh was questioned again and again on Roe v. Wade, and he said he would follow precedent. Did he veer from that in this decision? I don't think so. I mean, just, Kavanaugh wrote only a very short to page dissent, although he joined a large chunk of just much longer defense. You know, I think Kavanaugh is a little bit cagey and careful on exactly that point. Doesn't say a lot about roar. Casey. He really put it on the procedural question of whether these planets had standin on why he thinks that matter should have been read ended the trial court traditional back finding on that question. But, you know, I think folks are not gonna have trouble reason. If you imagine this is You know, suitable and without necessarily saying that he's probably a reliable vote for the conservatives in a case where the merits of an abortion restriction really aren't properly before the court. You know, I don't think it's directly inconsistent with anything, he said during the confirmation process, But Matt it certainly doesn't come running like wall. We've heard a lot about Justice Roberts Justice Gorsuch Has Cavanaugh been a reliable conservative vote during his first term here, I think, for the most part, I mean, I think there's one or two paces June where You know he's been on the other side. We're siding with the progressive on Ly one that comes to mind when you was the deciding vote on. It wasn't an especially major contention case that without an antitrust case You know, I think he's probably been in some respects more reliable in a smaller data set as a conservative vote than justice. Gorsuch has been, obviously, of course, it's you know, it's fresh off of the Majority opinion he wrote in the LGBT discrimination case, You know, so I think I think it's pretty clear that injustice. Cavanaugh, the conservative, got what they were hoping for. Um Whether that hold across the larger data set, we'll see. But you know, I also think it's also a sign of the times. June. You know, we had a 30 year period We had a Supreme Court with No. Two very obvious swing. That justice is Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Justice Anthony Kennedy, where you could see these pretty profound shift in majorities from one case to the next. That's not where we are. Now we have a solid conservative majority and results, like the abortion case, don't change that. I think they just show that there are at least some elements that even the solid conservative majority won't transgress. This was the third time in two weeks that Chief Justice John Roberts disappointed conservatives in a blockbuster opinion. Is he now the next Justice Kennedy Oh, I think it's been clear June since Justice Cabin always confirmed to the Supreme Court that in most, not all but most of the high profile, divisive partisan No social and contentious cases before the Supreme Court. The departure of death of Kennedy puts to Justice Robert from the middle, and I think, you know we're seeing that this term in spades. It's not just his decisive vote today in the Louisiana abortion paid not just his majority opinion in the doc a case you know that he also joined Justice Gorsuch. In the LGBT discrimination case, So you know they're going to be out liars where it's not the chief Cruz the swing vote, But I think you know in the high profile cases more often than not, yes, where there's a 5 to 4 majority, and it's No for the conservatives who sent him the the one who will have been personally to switch sides with the chief justice John, I don't think that's because anything about the chief has changed. I think that because No. The court itself has changed. And because the kind of dispute the court is taken are increasingly grounds new towards ones where any of those five justices were going. Be disinclined Tio. Ride with the quote unquote conservative position. It's going to be John Roberts. Using this opinion and looking forward at some of the other opinions that are coming out, especially the decision on the subpoenas for Trump's financial records. Does this tell us anything about how justice Roberts may vote on that? I really don't think so. You know, I don't think that this is any kind of broader shift or pattern in how the chief justice instead of his job, you know, I think he's he's able to take that from cases differently. I mean, you know, right after we got the abortion opinion this morning, we got the chief justice's majority opinion. And that's the Buchanans, which was a very classically conservative separation of powers. Hold them from him. So I don't think we should read anything broader into his vote in these cases, other than the reality that he is now the Longboat And, you know, do not could show up again as early as you know the cases where they were coming down on Tuesday or the rest of this week or next week. You know, I don't think this is the last time this term that the chief going to be the swing vote, But I also don't think that you know the fact that he's this one wrote in some cases allows us to predict in which cases It most likely

"So that's that's the best go to. Think of other practices, but that's. GonNa Sue. So bree. Sort old white to to bring our listeners on this episode is. All of the things you've identified we've talked about are are enormously important to implement. Communication to ME IS NUMBER ONE. lawyers doing just what we're doing right now, which is talking to one another about works for them? Those that are in recovery like yourself those like. Jeff I, who have struggled for years trying to get our arms and heads around this. The report by the way that lawyer wellbeing dot net. Lawyers can find it. Read it. And take away from me. Is Talk about it so? You know so. Jeff certified to teach meditation to lawyers and I'm a certified Yoga instructor right and. I can say that. You know the best. Closing arguments in performances in the courtroom I've given have been over the last short term as a result of doing the things you're talking about and I still have the instinct. Know to the night before closing. Let me get to the conference room when we. Write things down over and over again. I when I when I stop myself and I go to a yoga class where I meditate I do both of those things. Invariably my performances so much better. Because of course I already know my case. I don't have to write things down. It doesn't mean I won't have an outline or some prompts in the morning, but but my time is better spending freeing my creativity up. And, so what can we do? To help create those person to person. Dialogues whether it's mentoring whether it's some kind of small groups in in firms. Can you speak to that? Have some ideas or thoughts affirms organizations and wears out there. How do we create that? I've seen during the with a pandemic. There's been a real focus in and I and I. Live in the world around lawyer wellbeing and the people that are working on those issues, but an attempt to create spaces through zoom or other online meeting platforms for people to come together in just share how they're doing, and so I'm hoping that that is practice that can continue because it's convenient. It's easy, and and these are people getting together and talking about how they're. They're coping how they're coping with work from home with kids are supposed to be homeschooling that sort of thing just to create some a circle of support and break through some of that `isolation and I think that that would be a thing that could really be helpful going forward in the future, because even when we go back to the offices or some of us do. This is still a profession that is plagued with isolation, so that could be one thing I think also for this and any other thing we talk about in regards to the practices that. Are Strategies to promote wellbeing essential to it with firms. Is that leadership participate? It's not just that they send out an email. Saying I want you to do this, but if you if they have you know a lunchtime meditation that the managing partner at least once a week shows up in his. There when I talked to law schools. It's about you know if you want students to do. You have a faculty member WHO's willing to show up and be a part of that when people see that the leadership is. Is doing these things, and it's a meditating doing yoga walking taking a fricken vacation. How about that for real? A real vacation? That is when the culture change starts to happen, but it cannot be just a a who did with our kids right? You know, do as I say it's gotTa be do as I. Do and so again we're talking about systemic change is GonNa. Come from the top they. The leaders of the firm had to be believers in set the example. They have to suit up in show up. Pre One I. Listen To you, talk and I read your report and I've my own experience what I, what I find in the profession is kind of stunning lack of emotional intelligence. This is a term that has been is out there in the universe now, and it really is for listeners dot now it's emotional awareness. It's the ability to to identify and name your emotions. The ability to self regulate you. Talk about it in terms of people abusing. Substances sort of a self regulation piece. They teach us in law school. To use our minds, but the emotions are completely left out. You told obviously over and over again. You're being to emotional I heard a settlement conference recently were settlement conference. Judge Admonish another lawyer. To emotional. and. and. He was right actually. This settlement judge I think it was, but the emotions weren't factored in to the mix, and the fact that lawyers are almost illiterate when it comes to emotions seems to be one of the problems that plague us in NF back to your question about leaders. How could a leader in a law firm? Star, to really foster a culture in the simplest way you can explain foster a culture. Of Emotional intelligence in a law firm or an organization. The first thing that comes to mind is communication from that later. And to be to communicate with their staff regularly. And speak from that space. To give an example in regards to the pandemic that we're going through right now with. An adviser with strategies in what we're telling big firms right now is. It's imperative that you ramp up your level of communication with your staff. and not just about brass tacks, but also about feelings, emotions from leadership communicate with one another from a very real place, and that's going to help set a standard or make it okay for your employees to communicate from that space or make it more likely. so again I keep getting back to leadership, but it is it is. So critical. So bree you are. One of the national leaders, really in the dialogue about wellness. Where can firms warriors organizations find you? What are you doing now? A teller listeners at all be in the episode notes for people that want to find it as will the link to the wonderful report. You wrote, but. Can, you share with folks what you're doing where they can find you? Yeah I, wear too many hats right now, so. The main one is cruel strategies. Senior adviser would girl strategies and then I, also am the chair of the commission, lawyers, assistance programs and founding co chair of the National Task Force a lawyer will be.

"A check. The box kind of thing that a corporate counsel could be looking for would be. Do you have policies around what a person should do either? They're having a mental health or behavioral? Health concern. And Ninety eight percent or more law firms do not have any policies related to that I mean basically the closest are going to be able to tell you. Is that what we do? You know the will show you the policy where you're not allowed to drink alcohol during day or something like that or have elicit drugs on the premises and that's about it. But. WE WE'VE SEEN IN A.

That major. Corporate client. Or practice carrier could demand of law firm to show that they're actually. Putting into place some policies or procedures that will have an impact. On the quality of representation that people are getting at the firm. Bob and I have been talking about. The report you co-authored and Part of our advocate has just talking about how. Lawyers can really find satisfaction. In this. Hyper competitive pressure filled. Profession that. We're probably the most neurotic profession out there. It's got to be true right I. Have Been Costa Ice Yeah I'll go with it, too. And it's. I am console lawyers. Travelers. Especially guys like Bob, very neurotic and the. It's always amazing to me when we have these conversations and I and I. And I think back to myself my first two years, and where I've been along the path, and if somebody could have intervened, said to me. Here's how you're gonNA. Find more happiness or here's how you're going to. Go deeper inside yourself, and you'll actually be a better lawyer, but you'll have a lot more peace of mind and the paradox vulnerability to us out again. That's. Moving towards vulnerability moving towards fear moving towards a mistake, you know even just a second ago. When you lost your train of thought, I saw the look on your face. When lost train of thought when you're talking I've had this in court where you all the sudden. Lose your train of thought and you're doing something, and and the world can collapse on you and you're feeling your the whole inner critic starts to come in. I'm doing this and everybody sees me right and. I'm embarrassed I'm ashamed, and and if you start to get one starts, get closer to those places inside themselves. A whole new world opens up and. The conversation is giving a little speech on a question, but the conversation we've been having is about. Whether it's going to be A. Top down or bottom up shift in the profession. And I guess the question view is is. What those practices that you alluded to some of them in yourself. That could really help a lawyer. To manage themselves and to be able to live in a way. Not from a moral point of view, but from just being affected, what are the kinds of personal practices? That folks can start to to work on. The will shift their consciousness. That leads to better choices in and. Mixon healthier sure and let me preface my comments by saying and this the Task Force National Task Forces. Mindful of this we're not. We're about bringing about systemic change. Systemic change in the legal profession is not going to happen. From individual lawyers, taking these actions on talking about systemic change will occur when the leaders of the profession, the supreme courts of each state etc, implement policies practices at Cetera that are gonNA. Support the the members of the profession, so that's where systemic change comes from at the same time. It is imperative for our own I. Think Survival in if not just basic personal satisfaction to engage in basically a program self care that I had alluded to earlier so the thing that I talk about is the best Go-to for a lawyer a trial lawyer. Somebody who's super busy in wants fast. Facts are powerful effects in the least amount of time. and. I would say that his meditation. And you know we hear a lot about mindfulness, mindful eating and mindful flower picking and. But I'm talking about specifically the hard thing meditating and sitting down, and for ten minutes or fifteen minutes, and learning how to focus your mind on one particular object or something that is going on in the present moment and letting go of discursive thought, all that sort of thing that continual ticker tape of thoughts that go across our mind, constantly and studies about the effects on our brain because we know the issue of neuro plasticity that our brains can change for the better. That, it is highly effective and so for my experience. In recovery, taking care of myself, that was a core piece of it, and so I've meditated for over ten years. I've taught meditation. I've taught meditation for Warriors. It's not. It's simple. It's straightforward, but it is not easy to do it takes discipline exercise for your brain. You know and it you sit down and meditation. What you're really doing is focusing on the present moment and every time your mind wanders off, which will do constantly you bring it back to the present moment, and that's like the you know. The the the Arm Carl of. That you're doing for your brain and you knew that over and over again and your brain. Cheese, a greater ability to concentrate. Dec-, clearly to the heart of a matter to discern things. You can read witnesses butter. You have better insights into fact, scenarios and cases. The the amount of things that benefit lawyers that are. Legion and there are so many I can attest to this free I can attest to this because I'm going to take. A more available? To to read what's happening in a trial setting in and preparation that I had been before I, started meditating. Absolutely you can just hone in on it and concentrate so much better with our current super mode of being which is constant, incessant distractions from looking at our phones and constant notifications and media and coming, we trained reigns to be very superficial and pop around constantly in what we is lawyers need is the ability to focus. Concentrate goes deep. And take some facts in scenarios and analyze it moving around and try out different things. And so the medication helps us so much, and it's something that you can do honestly in ten minutes a day if you're disciplined. If it works for you, you may decide to go to fifteen or twenty minutes a day. Do it every day and after two or three months. You will notice that your brain works better just like if you went to the gym and you started working out, it's the same. It's the same thing..

Their third child named Daniel was born. Colin had an affair with a married woman. She is an old friend of his from college days. The affair lasted for about a month. Certainly not a long-term when when Leslie found out about it she called the woman and the limit assured Leslie that the fling was over. But here we just got a newborn. She's somewhat depressed. She must have been feeling very vulnerable. Not only a newborn but to other small children so her hands are definitely fall. It's very overwhelming. And she was devastated by the affair. Her self esteem was low and she felt lonely. She and Colin decided to move forward but this marriage was irreparably damaged and her trust in. Collin definitely was broken by this and Callan really wasn't much of a businessman. He soon had financial problems and realized that he had spent more than he could afford. On this new practice. He was busy in the office and it was state of the art. It was beautiful but the prophets didn't improve. Because the busier he got the more he had to spend and he had to hire a second dentist. Which cost a lot of money? So it really wasn't the best time to go out and buy a more expensive house. But that's what he did by the time they paid their mortgage and the expenses for the dental office. They were leaving on overdrafts each month. Never CATCHING UP AFTER. Leslie gave birth to their third child. The tension grew in the house and the bigger house was newly built and needed fixtures flooring painting and furniture but now the howls were house before. They had no money to do the work so they moved in with. No carpeting and Leslie was left to raise these three little children on a concrete floor with sparse furnishings. And really not much spending money so the house was a mess and Leslie was very overwhelmed and not feeling very good about herself. Helen was actually a pretty good dad at that point and he tried to help by taking over with the children as much as he could. He gave up playing sports with his friends in order to help. Lighten the load on Leslie. But the marriage still suffered from all this financial stress and it became worse yet. Checks bounced and Leslie had no money for basic living expenses. Colin blamed delayed insurance reimbursement for his cash shortage. Well that's always the excuse but the bank was after him to improve this situation he had repeated meetings with the bank increases overdraft limit he even considered selling a new house or turning over his practice to another dentist he asked so. Helen was very concerned about how he looked to people right because he wanted to sell the house but he wanted to do it without anyone knowing. He didn't WANNA sign out on the lawn that it was for sale so a lot of this was about his pride in his ego then. In December of nineteen eighty nine. Leslie was pregnant with their fourth child now of course she loved her children but she was quite overwhelmed with the situation and the prospect of caring for four children under five years of age was just a lot. This along with the major financial issues was a very daunting prospect for her. The marriage was very strained and Leslie was feeling very alone. She really didn't like to tell people her problems. Such Colin considered divorcing Leslie but really never considered it a real possibility for a man who is so involved in his faith in his church. The stigma of divorce would be unbearable. If he left his wife and children his Baptist friends would shun him. It didn't mean he had given up having sex with a woman. Outside of his marriage he said one affair that we know about may be more. Yeah probably more. I would guess but we're not sure in nineteen ninety though. He was actively looking for a new woman to sleep with. He was well aware of how his earlier affair had damaged his marriage but felt like he couldn't stop himself so like porn. This was an escape for Colin and the consequences really weren't foremost in his mind. I mean when you have your mind on something like that and you're obsessed with it. The consequences really just kind of fall by the wayside. They're all secondary absolutely so Hazel Buchanan was a young mother who attended the same church as the whole family and who also worked as a teacher at their daughter. Laurence Nursery School Hazel is married to police officer. Trevor Buchanan Paisley Trevor. Had Two young children of their own Hazel was attractive but not exceptionally so and she was very very shy. Still Colin was really taken with her. Yeah I mean like the other people in the story. Hazel had grown up in a deeply religious Baptist family. She had so far been faithful. Trevor but people who the couple would say that it was on balanced. Trevor definitely loved her more than she loved him. In fact trevor would do. What ever Hazel asked him to trevor looked at Hazel with adoring is never showed any interest in other women so he was madly in love with Hazel. He thought he was lucky to have gotten her Colin in Hazel had met through the church and she had been to his dental clinic but the story goes that Colin and Hazel 's romance began in the summer of nineteen ninety when their children were at the public pool for swimming lessons. Leslie was pregnant with the Fourth Child Jonathan at the time so she was tired so Colin had taken the children to the pool and Hazel. Was there with her children too. So Hazel was practicing swimming when Colin came over to her and started throwing on the charm. He held her waist in his hands as she practiced her strokes and then they continued to come to these lessons and began to flirt. More and more one day is Colin was holding her. He slid his hand over her thighs and over her pubic area and then he apologized in Astra to forgive him but he was really happily surprised when Hazel response was. I'm not so innocent myself. So she seemed like she was open to it certainly. Did that wasn't too long after that incident when Hazel and Colin. I kissed that day. They had taken their kids to the beach. A church outing. They returned to Collins House afterwards and they ended up making out in one of the bedrooms and after that thinks just escalated pollen played guitar in a church group and Hazel said. She wanted him to give her lessons so Colin began to show up at. The Buchanan House was sheets of music and they'd sit on the Sofa together with her guitar when day. Trevor came home from his shift and found practicing together and he certainly didn't like the looks of that. It looked to him like something was going on between Colin and his wife. I spoke to Hazel. But she insisted that it was all innocent that he's just teaching her to guitar. Yeah but when you walk in on something like that you can definitely pick up the vibe or sure especially if you know the person well but the first time that Colin Hazel had sex. They did it in the Buchanan Home. When Trevor wasn't there and once they'd finished. Hazel was filled with guilt and started acting like she was in denial like. Oh that didn't really happen. She would say but she wasn't guilty enough to end. This affair continued. They continued to meet and have sex at least once a week and they started taking a lot of chance says I mean for example on more than one occasion. Colin came to Hazel 's house while trevor was there. He was asleep in the bedroom and he and Hazel had sex in the utility room as her husband slept in the bedroom down the hall. Now that is crazy. That takes a lot of nerve until you. Wow you know I don't forget trevor's a policeman years a gun. He can probably come out. Shoot Colin and get away with it right because his in his house in the middle of the night. Here's an intruder. Yeah so Y- yeah. It just seems like they really had lost control making very bad decisions to say. The least on the thing with that is that everyone's going to know about it. We live in a small town Cher. And they're in a church together. I mean it. It's inevitable but with the way they're carrying on the they're gonNA get found out. Oh absolutely yeah. I don't think it took very long for them to get found out well the way they acted well. Yeah I mean Hazelwood even meet Colin while he was out running or riding his bike and sometimes they visited the dental clinic after hours and had sucks his elect to have him do her teeth. She was very into having pretty teeth so he would. You know work on her teeth. Have a little sex but people had to notice. Sometimes Colin would be out for a Iran and he would actually climb in through Hazel bedroom window. If Trevor was working sometimes he came in through the back garden and Hazelwood. Let them in through the back. Door so yeah. They're bound to be found out. They're lucky they haven't been caught in the act at this point argue so the Buchanan's neighbors would often see Colin driving past the house and also seem walking to the Buchanan House while Trevor was working. He in Hazlet us. Go to church outings while Leslie was home with. The kids and Trevor was.

American adults are obese and nearly one in ten is severely so government researchers said on Thursday for all the latest headlines and information tune the sportscenter on ESPN radio all throughout the day. So again for those of you just joining us. It's not a piece of fiction. I thought it was something out of the onion and yet it's shocking and at once not surprising at all because if I told you who in or baseball specifically might be someone who would want in the offseason to dabble in Rodeo under the alias. Mason Saunders you guys my guests And guess correctly that Madison Bumgarner is the guy most likely to do that. So diamondbacks reporter Zach Buchanan. He works for the athletic First of all thank you. Congratulations on Stugatz of awarding you the Pulitzer and also just congratulations on what I'm assuming and I hope Zach is the biggest story of your career is not It is yeah it actually. I don't know if you've seen his baseball reference page but he is now hasn't an alter ego listed under his profile as Mason Saunders and until you mentioned the onion the onion actually did a a little quick hits thing on and on its website yesterday so I mean that's the first time in my career that's happened. It's such a won't happen again. It's such a great story so take us through how it is that you and you worked on this with another reporter right yes. Andrew Baguley are dance reporter who is known madison per a decade now And we just. We just got sent to link to that facebook posting from December where I mean the entire story was contained in that post where there is on horseback roping and steer there is in the winter circle next to his partner holding a bag of or a a envelope of twenty six thousand dollars in cash and there is identified as Mason. Saunders even though it is very clearly Madison Bumgarner. What did you do? I mean we just we just? We did some googling And there is a mason. Saunders that competed last March and so we figured maybe that's him. It was also here in Arizona. Two days later from that competition MARCI Pistons Spring Training. Game And you know then you can bring up old interviews where he talks about how he likes to compete in this sport called team roping And all these interviews. He's done before his twenty seventeen injury on a dirt bike Where he admitted it was a stupid decision. It was against his contract. Even though he's dirt bike his entire life. And you start thinking. Maybe that why. He's choosing to use an alias now even though he's talked about doing this thing openly before did the team no he was doing this like this. Okay the team did not know he was doing this. And is it in violation of his contract They won't say the the toughest thing to do in sports is to get my case in to say what is in anybody's contract And so that they have taken the approach of saying look. We want him to be safe We recognize either grown man and that he has hobbies and interests away from the field We don't want to tell them what he can and can't do but we want him to be safe and make smart decisions because we're counting on him. I'm sure behind closed doors. There are more serious conversations going on than that but I do think that they're going to afford him some autonomy in this okay. If you're just joining us this is what we're talking about. Madison Bumgarner has been working as under an alias. Mason Saunders in the Rodeo Biz and the reporter who broke the story from facebook is diamondbacks diamondbacks reporter Zach Cannon He works for the athletic. Do you know if Mason Mason Bumgarner Madison Saunders. Whatever the hell his name is you know if Madison Bumgarner is mad at you because you reported this story you know. I don't I don't think so When when we approached him out and showed him the photo I I mean I think he obviously a little peeved that it got out but I think he also recognizes. How our jobs work? And he talked to us for seven minutes about I mean he's quoted all throughout our story and then he didn't speak to the media until yesterday which was as I cactus league start and I didn't ask him anything about the Radio. Other people did and he Kinda Marshawn. Lynch and just said well. I felt good out there today. You know I'm really excited for spring every time someone asked about it but I it's a couple of questions about pitching in the answering my questions. Just fine stonewalled me. So if he's holding a grudge against me he's not doing it very well about Mason Saunders. Is He olding grudge? You know I'm not sure I'll ever speak again. Who were you speaking to seven minute conversation? You were speaking to just Madison Right. He wasn't going back and forth between personas and he probably didn't find any of this either. No I'm not sure he's found it funny but I think he understood like why others would Then you gave some pretty funny quotes. I mean. The first thing he said was boy. This is ruining my alias So I mean I think he he gets it from my understanding and you know I was leaning on Andrew Baguley for this because he knows him so well and he says he'll he'll he'll understand what we're doing So I don't think that I think it's all GonNa blow over in a couple months. It's it's still here Mason Saunders at Games road parks or something. But I don't think it's going to be this thing where he's constantly peppered with questions about it anymore Do you know. When did you ask the difficult questions about how he was using the alias? Clearly because he knew he was doing something he probably shouldn't have been doing well. We asked him why he was using an alias. Because it's clear that he's been deep in this community for a long time this. This team roping slashed Rodeo community Their semantics there that people involved in that community. We'll get upset with you if you use the wrong terms but So everybody when he competes. Everybody knows it's Madison. Bumgarner did not hiding from anybody there but what he said you wanted to avoid was unbelievably unbelievably. Funny things where you just casually. You're too close to the stories that like it's the dumbest thing in the world that everyone knows that it's Madison Bumgarner. But they keep referring to them on the speakers as mazing saunders. Yes yes it is. He said he didn't want everybody getting their phones out and filming him. And it becoming something that that Kinda reverberates beyond the small community of car-o-van Which I get. I would suspect that. He also didn't want teams. He was doing it. Although it apparently has been quite an open secret among players all the players know that he does this. It's not like he kept it secret so I mean I don't think you can discount that. He just wanted his bosses and at the time it didn't December the free agent but he just wanted teams to to not be in his personal life. How do you come up with the name Mazen? Saunders? 'cause it's perfect We'll saunders is. The name is his wife's maiden name and his brother-in-law ten or saunders also as msgz at Rodeos full-time in the summer and then Mason is just a shortened version of Madison that he said that his wife will call him in public so nobody recognized them. There's also comical to me because massive bumper recognizable person. I thought this whole thing was right under our noses for awhile. How did it go? Like how good is he at this? He's really good He's very good at it. This is a tough thing. I mean. He's a healer which means no. The sport is a steer gets released the header. It was the first person in the team. Roques the head or the horns and then the humor has to get the back legs and the healer is more difficult and I mean he he was like two hundred teams into each of these these roping jackpots. And only the six two teams throw up among the the the the ones that win money and he's won money at least twice doing this And so I think he's pretty good. I mean he knows a lot of FRO Rodeo type guys. I don't know what the term for that is cowboys. How dangerous is what? He's doing. How how likely someone to get injured doing that? The injuries that happen the most often. Or you maybe get an abortion fracturing or you sometimes lose a finger I guess from the Lasso or whatever you call it I mean why does it right? Handed left handed pitcher. But it doesn't can lose a finger like super common but I don't think it's uncommon. I'm not sure what I would guess the That's the one that you're hooking the rope with lose your thumb. That's going to screw everything up. Losing your thumb is the worst thing to lose. Yeah I mean it's not like it's not playing video games you know. It's not playing golf. It's more dangerous man but he has been doing his entire life. And we've never heard of getting injured doing it before now so I don't know how to weigh that 'cause I mean I think it's safe to say. He is an expert at this and we are not as he uses left hand he has to use it at some point now for nothing. I don't know what the bill does. Maybe hold onto the saddle horn or something. I've no idea we have less than a minute left here and we have to get out of here but just what would you say? We didn't cover in this conversation with you. That you thought was also interesting. I don't I don't know man. I think it's all interesting what I've been doing recently. Just anytime the diamondbacks tweet or post on instagram with Madison. Bumgarner just looked through the comments. And it's all mason saunder stuff. That's incredible outfits. This is like a thing now. It's not I was wrong. Mexico Michael Vick's run Mexico. Have we had a better alias story in Sports Act? Thank you for being on with us. We appreciate -gratulations now. Thanks so much for having me Gosh Donlevatar. I don't WANNA be too extreme on this. But he failed America Stugatz. Okay very good. These live with.
The Perils of 19th Century Etiquette
"We are taking a trip back in time to explore the elaborate and prejudice intricacies of nineteenth century etiquette. And you know manners may not be exactly the first thing that comes to mind when you think of perilous situations but let me assure you that some of these codes which govern the social graces during this time period and we are talking specifically here about Europe and America. Here say well. These codes of etiquette can be mind blowing Lee complicated and one false step well. It wasn't just embarrassing. It could potentially mean utter social ruin not to mention these codes of etiquette were specific to gender age and even Marital Status. So you had to keep all of these designations in mind with each and every social interaction you had throughout the day. Many of the rules governing behavior during the nineteenth century can fill a bit overwrought and even a tad ridiculous to us today but at the time they were considered the very fabric and structure of society to even begin to comprehend them ourselves. We of course while we headed straight to the bookshelf for etiquette books of the era. Yes and we are super fortunate to have a whole slew of these types of books special collections at fit. And I look specifically at the following books. I looked at etiquette for ladies which is published by Leeann Blanchard in eighteen thirty nine. I looked at the American gentleman's guide to politeness by Henry. Liu Nets from eighteen fifty nine social etiquette of New York by Abby Buchanan Long Street from eighteen eighty four manners and social usages by Mrs John Sherwood from eighteen eighty seven and manners culture and dress of the best American society by Richard A wells from eighteen. Ninety three okay that was that was a mouthful and that cast is just the very tip of the iceberg in terms of our holdings. We have so so so many more including also ones that are kind of blend of being etiquette and also like a beauty guide as well so right and the great number of these relate directly to the fact that these little books were immensely popular at the time the beginning of the nineteenth century San explosion of not only etiquette books onto the market but also ladies magazines which frequently codified and coached the readers into their finer points of quote unquote proper behavior and in the wake of the French Revolution. The spread of democratic and Republican forms of government really spurred the growth of the middle classes and with all that brand new upward mobility came increased tensions and anxieties over one social standing quotes etiquette is the machinery of society. It is like a wall built up around us to protect us from disagreeable under Brad People. Who were fused? Take the trouble to be civil. Wrote one source from eighteen eighty four so basically anyone who is interested in bettering their station in life. A deft knowledge of etiquette was key to gain acceptance into the world of society proper. You know an an a lapse in this performance of manners and I say performance because it really really was It could be quickly. Chalked up to one's lack of so-called good breeding. And this is the phrase that you see over and over and over again in these manuals good breeding and if one was deemed uncouth or quote unquote. Ill bred that could also make you an undesirable acquaintance at the time because basically anyone who was in your social circle was very much considered a reflection upon yourself yes and this rapid expansion of the middle classes Europe in America during the nineteenth century is a big part of the reason why etiquette books were so popular at the time as we just mentioned so if you weren't necessarily raised in the know you could just buy a book that delineated roles on the proper way to move throughout the world and these books covered all sorts of events and occasions from things. We consider pretty standard today so like table manners wedding etiquette or how to console a bereaved friend but also more than a few topics that we would consider. Well a little niece today. Yes and just a couple of my favorites include how to format a personal letter to the president of the United States. Naturally clearly we've all done right The proper deportment to have when taking one's Harvard exams which I found this especially funny because this is the only university mentioned this etiquette book and I believe at this time. It was only men that could enroll in Harvard. So I guess the etiquette manuals saying go go harvard or go home. I don't know One source I looked at had hilariously titled Section called Lives Shipwrecks. I haven't dove into this quite yet but I remain most intriguing. I will return to that chapter but last but not least is how to deal with quote. Low Bread Women cads slanderers and scandal. Mongers timing. Come on you gotTa love that Punchy Nineteenth Century Language of course there is no way we can possibly cover all of these topics and a single episode of dress so we had narrowed. Today's focus down to what was one of the most interesting aspects of nineteenth century etiquette. And that is the practice of calling and by this. We do not mean placing telephone call because we have to remember that the very first telephone systems were really only commercially. Viable starting in eighteen seventy seven and the adoption for home. Use was rather slow. I have to say According to the US Department of the Interior in one thousand nine hundred only three percent of US homes had their own telephone so that begs the question. Just how did people communicate with each other during the nineteenth century? I mean letter writing. Of course that's a given but there were also this other form of calling these in person visitations which were governed by some of the strictest rules of etiquette but before we even get to the matter of visits and calls. We've I must address the matter of meetings and introductions during the nineteenth century it was rarely considered appropriate for to individuals regardless of their sex to meet without a formal introduction by way of a friend or a relative and even then both parties were supposed to separately agreed to the introduction in advanced unsolicited introductions are bad for both parties and this was stressed by one etiquette. Manual we consulted. Yeah and you might be asked why. Well a formal introduction had the implications that the association between the two parties was going to continue and this was especially true when it came to introductions to women quote great prudence or action must always be used but infinitely more care is necessary as a lady cannot shake off an improper acquaintance with the same facility as a gentleman can do and their character is much easier affected by the apparent contact with worthless and the dissipated out. That's rough the weaker. Fairer sex. The more impressionable right so once. Both parties had agreed to a formal introduction. It was protocol to I. Present not introduced a gentleman to the lady. She in turn was expected to respond with a slight bow. A faint smile and saying his name so the person making the introduction would be like Mr Smith desires to be presented to Miss White Miss White wishes to be acquainted with Mr Smith. Then miss white would bow smile and say Mr Smith and April. This bow was absolutely necessary according to etiquette books which say that unless she bowed gentlemen cannot claim her as an acquaintance. When we say some of these finer points finicky were not lying and right now in my mind so many historical period films are coming into my my mind right and all of that. Formality is making so much more sense. Now because men were to be presented to women and women had to formally accept that social connection so that's between men and women but cast what about introductions between Women Shirley? These were a little bit less complicated. One might think but I mean not really after agreeing to be introduced in the case of two women the younger was to be introduced but not quote unquote presented to the older of the two ladies. If the two women happen to be of similar ages their marital status now came into play and the single eighty would be introduced to them married woman and if two women of the same age and marital status were being introduced the one of lesser social standing would be introduced. I this just sounds I mean. It's
What China wants with Equifax data
"That big Equifax data breach couple years back. Hackers got hold of the names birthdates and social security numbers of one hundred forty five five million of US federal prosecutors announced charges in that case today charges against four members of the Chinese People's Liberation Army. This is the latest. If by far the largest in a string of hacks that American officials have tied to Beijing. Marketplace's Amy Scott has more now on how China might use that trove of data. It's got in a press conference attorney. General William Bar described the equifax breach as more evidence of China's voracious appetite for Americans personal data including the theft of personnel records from the Office of personnel management the intrusion into Marriott hotels anthem health insurance companies and and now the wholesale theft of credit and other information from Equifax. Chinese officials have denied any connection to previous hacks but cybersecurity. I security experts say there are lots of reasons China might want that data priscilla more. Ut is a researcher with the security intelligence firm recorded future richer. She says sensitive financial information like debts could be used by Chinese spies to target potentially vulnerable Americans so building thank profiles of individuals that could be susceptible to recruitment by Chinese intelligence services. Georgetown Professor Ben Buchanan wrote a book about Cybersecurity. Called the hacker and the state he says the data could also help China identify Americans operating undercover in Beijing. But my guess is the biggest determining factor. Here Why the Chinese did this is they could and Why not take it and why not see what might be useful down the line Buchanan? You can and says it's exceptionally unlikely. Chinese hackers will see the inside of an American courtroom but the charges do send a message that the US government is trying trying to track and deter foreign hacking. I'm AMY SCOTT FOR

You're I think that it's perfectly natural to wear your influences on your sleeves on because you're getting your way and you're doing your thing and a bit I by this time I can say confidently and very honestly that I feel like we're kind of getting in that zone where we're able to purvey our own lane you know. I think so without a doubt. Let's just in Tennessee and hang scouting. Thank you for the call. Justin in Tennessee. You're on with J Buchanan. Hey I was just ask Jay Journey chance the first couple Albums be released on CD anytime soon. And so you guys are so great. Live as are many discussion of lots. CD OR DVD coming out well okay To to answer the first one you mean the first couple rival sons albums on CD right. Yeah the EP. And Yeah I didn't realize those weren't readily available to people. I know that exist on because I have. Yeah yeah I know they exist and and if we're running low we we need to reprint or anything absolutely will will make those We'll make those available rival sons in the in the middle of actually starting our record label That handles all of our Our earlier catalog so that we can oversee and make sure that these things things are Matt These needs are met in the interim There's just there's a little bit of back and forth And Maybe A. Maybe maybe some of these things aren't getting done as quickly as possible But we are on it. I can tell you that it's going to be it's called sacred tongue records and we're going to be releasing our old old material and did you and that's a great question. Justin thank you for the call. has there been any thought about releasing any sort of live document of what yes whether a recording according or a video there. There's there has absolutely band. That's that's a ongoing discussion forums. Because from the beginning we knew that rival all sons was alive. Band really alive man. We record live in the studio but the energy that you get from say you now now when you get into the studio and you make a record each one of the songs will they went by the time you're finished. Each one of the songs gets to lives to live. They get the life of That's immortal that lives on the actual album you now so that's what people are going going to be streaming on spotify or neighbor streaming service But and then there is what the song actually grows is into and really grows into an a very organic way and that's in the live performance every night and we the band's unified on the idea. Yeah that we want to do this. We would love to do this. There are a lot of factors that go into that and It's hard to get you know a group of guys like Acosta agree on where to go to lunch. You know verses anything else so working on it. It's an ongoing conversation and hopefully sooner than later for you with cement. We're going to end here in about sixty seconds so I want to You've got that last call hanging on that. Just tell my mom she still makes.

"Start PORNA- coffee. And then I hear everybody's down there and I hear this explosion from everyone. Oh my God you're nominated you're nominated Oh goodness I'm sitting there and I'm just trying to process it because I right at that moment I got ah manager blaze taxi me. Anr Pecan bar tax to me. Have you heard Dave cobstock steamy. A you see what's up. I'm just I'm trying kind of get my bearings right. What and then within three minutes? Now you got another nomination you gotta twice and that was. That was one of the weirder days I've had had a long time. And let me tell you. Got A lifetime a weird day and that was a strange one because it seems inconceivable. I think that in this industry USTRY Anything with performance you know and the show Biz industry You get used to getting the hope. Hope beat out of you really quick like you don't let yourself get excited about stuff. You know our prospects and all of that like nothing's ever real until it's done and And so I looked at it like wow well if we're nominated that actually we have an accolade that can't be can't be taken from us and that's a good feeling man you know. That's a really good feeling because you get that Letting yourself get excited about stuff like that it gets beat Adia real early so then you're ends up being like okay. The dream is dead long. Live the dream but that is kind of the story of a musician trying to come on so many doors slammed in your face so many knows that you just kind of like all right. We'll see you know. Whatever everybody out there I happened and everybody out there? Listening can relate because it's like you fail until you succeed and And so you just get used to write you learn to love the the taste the Matt in well. Let's hope God knows I'm pulling for you. And I hope you win a both. And you should. And it's deserving and it's It's been a remarkable will year man because I was just thinking a little over a year ago I had Scott in here with me and feral roots. Just come out. Yeah I remember. He showed up and we had a great conversation in the record just been released east and we were talking for a bit and I was telling him how much I love the record and you guys were just sitting out on the whole promotional run for the record. That's right that's right and now here we are a little over a year later. The record is You know re universally loved and you're still working. FERAL roots right. I mean we are. We're still working. FERAL roots man. We launched the third single shooting stars. And that's going to two different formats. You Know Brock and and AAA it. They say it's a crossover something you know that it's really that it can work and So and that one's going really strong so there's no telling if we can squeeze a fourth single out of this you know maybe a stood by me or something like that. I don't know it would be great. It would be great for AD. It'd be great to coast on on this one. Because in the meantime we've already begun writing. I was GONNA ask for the next record. Yeah how far how far down. How far along are you on that I think there's There's been a lot a lot of work already done not within the whole band necessary. It's Scott working on his stuff and me working on mind before we like like really come together on it and you know the way we really well get out with thorough routes. You guys went about the writing in a different way than you had previously row. Hell Yassa process was different. So for the next record will be similar to how you did. Feral roots take take the folks through the that sort of process. Yeah how it was different right and what you're going to approach you're going for. Yeah I'll give you. I'll give everybody a quick history lesson. Really quick with so Robinson's got seven records. Altogether Fair routes being the most reason. Listen the first. Six records were made very very rough. Shot we get into the studio and this is. It's very intentional. Get get into the studio. Don't bring material in Bringing a couple of maybe rough ideas but don't bring because I'm a complete songwriter. I will write songs. You know you meet yet the whole you know the whole thing. But it's like I have a partner Scott like the worst thing you now mercy. Worst mistake we could ever do is not to have his signature hands on anything. Sure known and I feel like The sound of rival signs is everyone's personal identity on each one of those songs. And so we go in and we just we start writing right away and we we record as soon as as the song is written. And so we're going to be we're doing at least once a day and we'll get in there for just a couple of weeks and then jump out and the reason we do that with these first six records is so that Would the listener when they listen to the album for the first time or the song for the first time time They're hearing played for the first time. And it really is a shared experience. It's a kinetic thing. And maybe the listener doesn't realize that but for us we We've always been purist to that and on in terms of performance. Because when you don't know exactly what you're doing when you when you aren't altogether sure that you can give flawless performance Something special happens there and it's a different. It's a different fight for survival title when you aren't replicating something that you've already done and you're just trying to refine it and do it perfectly. There's nothing perfect about this band by God. Nothing but data the beauty yeah. There is never a flawless execution. Because we just that's not part of bar are narrative altogether. You know we just it's it has to be live in. It's got got to be an electric. He'll that's squirm out of your hands constantly. I mean massive respect beyond the songs and everything from as a fan about that. Because I'm I'm on a massive campaign enraging for the last year or two about what I feel is an epidemic in rock doc that needs to be stopped and that is rock bands not truly playing live. I can't I don't WanNa hear it. I feel betrayed as a as a fan and I want to hear a pay for live. I want live absolutely I personally Scott and I've been talking about for years but we're putting it in the works now we're GONNA put together festival of like minded rock bands the Division that we see in rock and roll. There's a lot of different branches. There's there's a lot of different hybrids of Rock Rock and roll and rock music. And there's a lot of exciting young up and coming out right now and bring bring it really live and getting back to the roots of rock music and that makes me so happy and I know that there are these various factions. You know for for these different bands that are out there doing wing. It live right now and I'm looking at it and I look at the division or these people only play with these people. These people play with these people. I'm just thinking I you know we gotta start the festival and just get everybody under the umbrella and do. It's good for the genre. When do you want to do that? I've gotTA sorry we're working on it. It's really fluid. Right now. Would put were just custom. Where would you do it? Not a touring thing a one off. That's a TB d you know whether it's a touring or TB dubar Were were rounding do things up right now because it's a it is a huge undertaking. The more that I look into it were it takes a lot. It takes a lot of people putting in a lot of work But it's really it's a I see it as a mission From Gad but like I look at the I look at the genre and I think thank you know. We're fortunate enough to be nominated right and that I'm looking within the categories and I'm looking at the amount of diversity that's within these categories for the first first time you know in a in a while when you look at the different bands that are actually in each category when like going to vote. There's actually there's a good amount on a diversity with the influx of so many different so many different types of bands so many different art forms so many different musical art forms arms out there that are coming through and grown up out of the out of the concrete. Every day I think that that diversity I see modern culture culture celebrating that and along with that their new versions of rock on raw and there are new types of bands coming in and I want to I I just I'm looking at and I think that does Shawn Raya where it's at with recognition rock and roll is so much more than A caricature of a decade or for a novelty because people love rock and roll. I know it and I'd like to do something to spotlight and bring unify the band's well when you're ready and that's happening I mean you got one hundred percent support from me man however you need to get the word out. Whatever I can do to help absolutely let me ask you a couple quick things then I promise promise the audience because we only have another twenty minutes or so? I promise the audience that they few folks could say hello to you while you hear so the tour. I felt when I heard you were going to go out on that co headlined with Stone Temple Pilots. Yeah I felt that was going to be for people that weren't in the know on rival sons that that was going to be probably probably the best platform. You guys have had touring in America and I gotTa tell you I feel like I'm right and you can tell me if I am because since that tour I was doing a lot of year end stuff as people do and Revealing my albums of the year and shows of the year and you guys were at the top on those for me but I think it's just how I feel. I mean it's just for lots of reasons but anyway lots of people call then. Yeah Hey now I get what you're talking about because I finally saw rival sons on that tour with stone pilots. Yeah how did you feel that whole thing went did did you feel you. Did you feel a real kick off of that. They're in America. I know in Europe and other parts of the world. It's a different guys. The first answer is yes but it it bears explanation. I think My familiarity with the Stone Temple pilots catalogue. You know over the years you know everything everything that those guys have gone through. You know just to keep the fire lecture and I look at that. They've always been tremendous people. When whenever I've interacted with anyone anyone from the ban I absolutely fell in love with that band when we were out on tour and I was out there watching their set every every night and I probably spent more time in their dressing room hanging out with Dean and Robert and mine every day so we sit and talk about whatever or just? Jam Preview breakout some Acoustic Guitar. There was so much that I could relate with. They were such kind people people. Anytime I am afforded the opportunity to get in there and and just sit and have an honest dialogue about what it means to do this. This is a very unique vocation and lifestyle and they still they come from a different time and and they have so. There's always so many nuggets of wisdom then that that End Up get thrown around things for me to keep. Yeah you know things for me to carry with me and It makes me feel so much less alone when you run in to people that are like minded and But you're asking you you know what it did for US professionally or moreover may possibly In a fan expansion audience experiencing I felt it on this show. I think that we got it I.

"All those places and it's been great you know there's going to be a great package and also not to forget when we come to Vegas in July. You know we have queen's Reich like with us again and those guys they are amazing. I mean the new singer. It's not the new singer anymore. I guess it's been a couple of years already now.

It's it's going to be like a great and powerful package and wanted to do really like a great show for offense and hopefully come from all over the place. Hey I just thought of something else real quick You so we're talking about how reinvigorated Scorpions are and how many things you have coming up. And how farewell is an even in the vocabulary now. Mickey D has been in the band now for two three years. I'm not sure exactly how long it's been. How much of a role has the arrival of Mickey and Scorpions played in you guys going forward and wanting to continue? Has He really reinvigorated. And breathe new life into into the whole thing absolutely. It's it's really like a shot of new energy fresh energy energy and I mean he's such a powerful drama great musician and he's a great guy and on the personal level. You know the chemistry is fantastic. Sick it just so much fun to have him around you know and To play with him. You know it's it's it's really like he gave us a good new. Oh Energy and it just feels good you know and this is what you need when you go out there and play a great show. And we know Mickey for so many years when he wasn't motor Adam savage on festive here in Europe on other places. We're playing with motorhead together so we knew each other for a long time and and And what was the great When when he joined the band two thousand sixteen? So there's diversity coming up with Mickey next year five five years. She's I can't I'm saying to three years. It's almost five. It's crazy. How time flies? I can't believe that critically that's crazy. That is unbelievable unbelievable. And how's your voice feeling. You're the voice feels good.

You know this kind of south makes it much easier to survive. Fifty shows a year or something This is what we did Lexi next next last year and You gotTa Take Care of Your Voice. You know. It's only fun to go out there and perform when your voice in shape ape and you can can give a great performance you know and That's what I learned the last couple of years. It's it's I mean as we're growing older like like everybody else is going older You have to account for yourself and being a singer and the band. I think it's it's the most important thing to to make the right schedule. And and and work it out the way that you can can deliver every night a great great good you know and that's what we did last year and worked out very well you know no cancelled shows nothing of that you know I mean there's nothing you can do. Do you WANNA cut your virus or something but other than that you know. It's it's good to give voice to break and Recover from the last show have a day off and then come. I'm back with fresh energy.

A. at Siriusxm just a couple of days before the grammys rival sons nominated for two grammys. He's at the time we did this interview.

See Brother could see you to addy. You don't live in southern California and he mind no longer live in southern cal Tennessee. I Live live out in Tennessee. I live in Franklin Tennessee just outside of Nashville and You like it or you miss you miss it here. What what do you what do you well okay? Look I'll put it this way man i. It's it's interesting Tennessee's been really good to me. I moved out there and Do just so much work out there for me for writing and I found myself travelling travelling out there so much it made sense for me to make the move and then once we get out there My wife my daughter. They love it and It's it is strange strange because I could live out there until I'm a hundred years old. I will never be southern. Just never the Pacific Ocean is in my blood. You know so when I come out here it definitely I feel it I I. I get more homesick when it come out to visit everybody out here you were just telling. Tell me some good food spots to hit when you said where I like to eat out here and you're telling me some good spot so I could definitely tell your you know your home town on stuff was coming through a little bit.

They're they're giving their version of the truth and to send interface with these people really turns me on. Were you surprised when you guys were nominated twice vice or did you see coming or are you hopeful of it. What was the vibe where this kind of lies in? I was very surprised man. We we were.

An Interview with NFL Legend Jerry Kramer
"I'm speaking to Gerry grammar Jerry is so good to see a happy new year how are you thank you doing I'm doing great been good been bad been in between but I'm happy to be here and I've always enjoyed the our get together in our visits in the history of love the story you told me years ago about going into the sound room and doing an audition and getting a job because you dread instant replay as the at that I'm proud of that I feel good about that I'm proud of that suit your that's why I knew that we were destined become friends but for those who do not know so quickly when I got my first big break in fact I was with tiki barber last week in Dallas and he said to me where did you get your break which gave first break and I said it was a radio station in San Diego but as part of my addition a producer pulled me in and said right now on the spot you will interview Jerry Kramer were calling him at his home do the interview go I Samantha good thing I read that book when I was a kid that was my favorite book it is a good thing so that's great I appreciate the remember that to cure the chiefs or in the Superbowl which brings back memories a Superbowl one when you face them what do you remember about the build up to the first Superbowl we you know we had one a couple three championships prior to that so this wasn't our first rodeo and we really for sure who they were Jimmy we hadn't seen anybody they'd played against that we knew so we had no idea exactly who the team was watching film on like Thursday night and what's the Kansas city play the last game of the game before and two other defensive backs run together and not themselves down and Max McGee or with is set in the back of the room to go play that again run that back run that back so I read it back anyway not not not not not not do the Looney Tunes amazing and widowed when coach some party thing about that well coach was in a room with no I probably would never happened at the time but we you know the first half was kind of a wake up call no we had Buck Buchanan no DJ hall of Johnny Robinson you know we had some wonderful football players out there and we found that out and got serious at halftime and took care of business the second half but they were much better team than we anticipated Jerry Kramer is joining us so Jerry what kind of money we looking at as a bonus for winning that first Superbowl I think the the story about my tickets hi into by and for tickets for some of my nephews they were ten Bucks a piece I crowded but I ordered for tickets from the Packers but they called me last week the Jerry we got four tickets for you there eighteen hundred dollars of youth eight thousand Bucks worth of forty Bucks right and I if the Packers head the bin in the bowl I'd I'd have bought the ticket that was but I'm not going to pay ten thousand fifteen thousand twenty thousand dollars the seek to team that I'm not that fond of for tells him once cost you ten Bucks the I. in my nephews didn't show up they didn't come to the game so I end up given the tickets to for kids who were at the front gate and they were playing the fiddle in or out you guys want to go to the game yeah so I gave the ticket booth for kids and they got to go to the game incredible tenth still ten thousand empty seats in in that first Super Bowl there was an amazement that the media took two buses instead of just one right there were two buses for the media can you imagine the no difference between this and that so what what do you think when you see the difference between this and that did you have any idea back then that fifty three fifty four games later the Superbowl would turn out to be what it is right now yeah may I with trying to buy a football team back in seventy two three four somewhere in there and I had a chance to buy the New Orleans Saints John mecum junior father within bankruptcy and he had to sell the team so I called for five of the Packer general managers and went to see them and they said what the game look like with the for the future look like what the X. economics and how do you what do you think the help and overall health the game and everybody I met said peeking saturation over exposure leveling all Tom Miller our guide in Green Bay said Jerry these tickets have gone from two dollars to five dollars just in the sixties alone I don't know how much more these people could stand so the saints were available for like fourteen million dollars at that time for ten million and we signed the deal we went up to Oklahoma City with a two million dollar check and John junior starts noble and Lawton and cry and carried on they couldn't find the deal he sold it about did about three months later but I was that close to be in a part owner in the New Orleans Saints while mazing Jerry Kramer joining us amazing that close so you know you and I talked in the past about what was like plan that offense of line you and fuzzy were so critical to that famous Packers sweep what was the jury about that play that was so unstoppable of John Madden head of the coaching clinic with coach from Barty and John said he was set up in the back of the room those seats and coach what is spent four hours talking about to sweep in any broke for lunch he came back he talked for more about the sweep hidden jobs that it moved himself down a little closer and figured out that maybe coach Lombardi knew a little bit more needed about football well but it it was a a a a a a a lady that had to have perfection from about seven or eight different spot the tight end who blocked the linebacker had to make sure he took the linebacker the onside cut off the center made had to be done the right tackle had to get the middle linebacker the outside back at the block the tide in or the defensive end and so everybody had to do their job and we practice that play instead of water running wind sprints at the end of the end of the practice we would run sweet and often times in the early days we get it wrong and Mr Lombardi what they run right so would light up rose again and after that first year when we would mess up we'd say run so we'd run it and read it and run it and run it yeah we we gained eight point three yards per carry anything that first three years we ran that play and a lot of it was Ron Kramer who loves Jim Ringo Orge Greg fuzzy and I got the get out of that mess and get outside on some of the smaller players at that time which was out by the way it was wonderful it was wonderful I I leave at three hundred and twenty pounds and go out on one eighty you a plus your time mama conceiving she knows what I'm doing out there in the middle he has no clue what's going on nobody does really well those guys are a big mess in there and out somebody block somebody we don't know exactly who so it was the it was a wonderful play fourth Jerry Kramer join me for a few more moments Jay last spring we heard the news that bart Starr passed away what was your reaction in what was part like as a person birth the bows with bows good as they get yeah I mean he was a quiet guy didn't blow his mouth off much and we didn't know who he was the first to refer to a three years I played with bart I have virtually no memory of it we had like four quarterbacks Lamar McKay and Joe Francis a couple other guys and bart and so he was up and down the ladder we're playing the Chicago Bears one day and bar has a tendency to pinpoint the path underneath and the the back for coming up so close wanting to throw deep I don't care what happened to throw the ball of

"buchanan" Discussed on American Elections: Wicked Game
"It's almost midnight nine on May twenty fourth eighteen fifty six in Franklin County Kansas. A group of eight men creep along the Pot Awadhi Creek in the darkness of night in the distance. Candlelight from a small house closed through the trees the men sneak through the underbrush toward the lights. This is the home of James P doyle. A pro slavery man from Tennessee. The hour is late and visitors are infrequent so instead of answering the door doyle calls out from inside. Yes what is it what do you want. Can you tell me the way to the Wilkinson Place. But the man that knocked is not looking for Wilkinson's home he knows exactly where Wilkinson lives in. Fact fact abolitionist. John Brown knows the name and location of every pro slavery. Man along the creek. He and his family settled Kansas to fight a war against slavery and incensed at the sacking of Lawrence. Brown is now ready to fight fire with fire and strike terror in the hearts of the pro slavery people tonight. He and his sons John's along with several other abolitionists already to take an eye for nine doyle. Not Knowing of Brown's true intent lets his guard down and opens the door the media brown and his men seized the opportunity and storm the house. No stay back stay away from my family. The Doyle Children Huddle around their mother other sons. The age of twenty two twenty and sixteen and oils young daughter Brown barks orders take outside. Brown's men grabbed doyle and his three sons panic. Mrs Doyle throws her arms around the youngest of the three begging Brown not to take him Brown ultimately spares the boy but orders the other other to out along with their father they walk them a short distance down the road. Doyle pleads with his captor in doing this what have I done wrong to you. You've wrong Kansas Mr Doyle you've round decency and liberty you've wronged God. This is his justice and John. Brown takes his pistol and aims at doyle's forehead. Please take my life but spare my boys spare them Isaiah Chapter Fourteen Verse Twenty One prepare slaughter for his children for the sins of their fathers that they do not rise nor possessed the land or feel the face of the world with cities unease John Brown shot James Doyle in the forehead then Brown sunset upon the younger doyle's with their swords one of the young Doyle's was struck down in an instant but the other attempted escape and was pursued and caught. He died a frightening death with his head head gashed open in his arms hacked off completely but the violence did not end there. Brown's company then attacked two more homes slashing to death a total of five five men in the master Brown's attack only escalade. What would come to be called Bloody Kansas by the end of the Kansas conflict? Some two hundred men were killed. Hold the violence. In Kansas escalated. Even as Washington and President Pierce remained. Paralysed as the election of eighteen fifty six got underway bloody Kansas Kansas doomed Democratic President Pierce's nomination the events of Kansas and his inaction made pierce look inept a failed leader incapable of de escalating the crisis one Democrat said of Pierce. He has no real strength but there is much weakness in him. Personally there's undoubtedly an active opposition to Pearson or rank which we are bound to respect. That opposition rallied around one man. James Buchanan on June fifth at the Democratic National Convention Buchanan was is nominated as the democratic. Party's candidate for president. His running mate was congressman. John Breckenridge of Kentucky. You can't had served as a Congressman Senator and secretary three of state under President Polk but he was not chosen for his resume instead he was chosen because the conflict and Kansas was widely unpopular and Buchanan. Being the Minister Mr to Britain was out of the country time his hands were clean. The decision of who would face Buchanan was settled on June nineteenth when the Republicans is held their first national convention. They followed the old whig party. Strategy of nominating a war hero known as the Pathfinder California Senator John C. Freemont Egmont was the famed explorer who had mapped much of the American West. He had also helped win California during his service in the Mexican American War Republican selected New Jersey Aziz Senator William Dayton as his running mate and adopted a platform of opposition to the expansion of slavery their campaign slogan was free soil free speech and Fremont Egmont the anti immigrant and anti-catholic know nothings nominated former president Millard as their nominee feel more had not sought the presidency and was was out of the country during the nomination but he reluctantly accepted fill. More like Buchanan was chosen for his lack of connection to the Kansas debacle quickly campaign campaign group dirty. The know nothings in eighteen. Fifty six would launch a series of attacks against Fremont and the press in what might be called the first presidential birther scandal the know nothings accused Fremont of being a foreigner. Though it was true. His father was French Canadian. His mother was a Virginian. These attacks also revealed that Fremont was an illegitimate legitimate child but of all the salvos launched by the know nothings none had more traction against Fremont than his suspected Catholocism. He was called a Roman EST and a papist pissed in his defense Republicans stumped hard for Fremont and many including abolitionist preacher Henry Ward Beecher author. Harriet Beecher stowe's brother personally vouched as for him. Being a Protestant Republicans ran an aggressive campaign with chants of we shall overcome. They promised to defeat the powerful Democratic Party. They lauded Fremont's amongst youth and vigor. In contrast to the sixty three year old Buchanan they held rallies and parades stumping for Fremont were popular senators Salmon Chase and Charles Sumner honor Abraham Lincoln pitched into giving almost fifty speeches for the Republican candidate. Meanwhile the Democrats ran an entirely different kind of campaign. Aside from calling Fremont young and inexperienced they came pant on fear painting Republicans as radicals. Who would end slavery for good in Indiana? Democrats held a parade featuring young girls in white dresses holding banners. Reading father's save us from nigger husbands many claim that if Fremont were elected the union would dissolve. You can't and embrace this feeling saying this race ought to be run on the question of Union or Union. The sentiment was only made worse when many Republicans called for the speedy peaceful and equitable disillusion of the existing union seeing the slavery issue as unreputable and disunion the only solution Asian ultimately in the presidential election of eighteen fifty six the threat of succession pushed many to support Buchanan hoping again to maintain the status quo and keep the union. The country had already had a taste of conflict with bloody Kansas. Many sought to avoid more bloodshed. Buchanan would win the south. There was no doubt so for Democrats. Most of the heavy campaigning was done in the north in five key. Swing states that will determine the next President Illinois Indiana Maryland New Jersey and Pennsylvania in November of eighteen fifty six when the votes were tallied Fremont didn't win a single southern state in the north. He won eleven Free State's though he gave the Republicans a great. I run as a party. It was ultimately not enough to overcome Buchanan of the swing states. Buchanan carried all but Maryland which went to know nothing candidate Millard fillmore. It would be the first and last electoral votes. The know nothings would never win. After the eighteen fifty six election the know nothings would crumble and not return to make a presidential run in the election of eighteen sixty though the Kansas Nebraska act had damaged damage the Democrats by further entrenching sectionalism and uniting. Anti Slavery Factions. You can instill emerge victorious though it was far from a landslide. You you can only received forty five percent of the popular vote. The newly formed Republican Party had lost but they had made a strong showing needing many southern Democrats afraid for the future. That fear in the south would carry through much Buchanan's term in the north the overwhelming feeling throughout Buchanan's presidency would be ranged escalate slavery struggle in both Congress and the courts would push the country to the brink. The election of eighteen fifty six had seen the birth. What would come to be called the third a two party system? It also sought beginnings of a sectional struggle between North and South by the election of eighteen. Sixty would rip the country apart on the next episode of wicked game the election of eighteen sixty with the country on the brink of civil war over the issue of slavery to lawyers from Illinois.

The Return of
"Welcome to the frame. I'm John Horn. It's Academy award the nominations mornings so we're out in the field when the lowest feelers bureau of the New York Times with a carpet bagger Kaya can kyle. I brought a Muffin. Thanks for having us over where this morning. Yes I'm eagerly consuming that Muffin. I need all of a sudden it's like can get after. Today's crack of Dawn Oscar. Nominations we have both been up since very early this morning. And even though I think we're still relatively awake and conscious I still think these nominations don't make a lot of sense. So where do you WANNA start. Let's talk about the movies that didn't get any love. I was shocked that the farewell did not make it into the best picture race. And that no actors from the farewell or parasite or nominated. Yeah I loved the farewell which came out this past summer. I would've loved to see Aquafina or Josh Suzanne who plays her grandmother in that movie get in unfortunately. Yeah Yeah it just missed out on everything. Eight twenty four which distributed the farewell to very hip indies studio. But they haven't shown an ability to get any of their summer movies ever into the Oscar race in a major way. They had the same problem with eighth grade and first reformed last year and now the farewell. Meanwhile though you've got neon a sort of comparable tae twenty four which parasite six Oscar nominations no in parasite. It is not only nominated for best picture. It's also up for best international feature and best director for June Ho if it wins the best picture prize and and I gotta say it has a shot. It will become the first foreign language movie to win that top prize. But let's look a little bit more closely at who didn't make the cut so bond Jun Mojo was nominated for director. Greta Gerwig wasn't and Todd Phillips was for joker. Joker had the most nominations with eleven. How do we start to talk? Talk about joker. Well I don't know I feel like we will never stop talking about jokers thing I it's been that sort of movie since the beginning running since it was announced since people got with its themes and especially since it became a billion dollar grosser at the box office which is crazy for a movie. Yes is about a famous comic book character but it doesn't have action scenes. It's Graham it's upsetting and now it's a best picture and best director nominee is. Is it going to win those awards. I don't think so. Maybe I'm protecting myself from thinking so I do think though that Joaquin Phoenix is near lock for best actor one of the first acting. Nominations that was announced. This morning was for best supporting actress. Kathy Bates in Richard Jewel. I don't think anybody saw that nomination coming. And it did seem to suggest what was going to happen for the next nineteen acting nominees and that is only one one person of color. Cynthia Repo played. Harriet Tubman was going to get a nomination. Yes initiate to Kathy Bates but the fact that she made it in and Jennifer Lopez didn't for Haas players. I think that's one of the big stories of this morning. I personally love Hustler's I thought Jennifer Lopez was giving fantastic robust movie star performance. It's in that film for some reason. While for a couple of reasons it just did not seem to catch on as far as that award season reconceptualise ation that needs to happen. When you've got a a big hit and then you want to prove that you more than just a hit the academy with the exception of little women? This year were turned an awfully cold shoulder to female ensembles and female all directors for that matter. There's there's quite a few nominated in best documentary but almost nowhere else including the big best director category. I just it. It bothers me that I feel like stories that are made by women that star women are not afforded. The same sort of canonical. Wait we so easily give similar stories about men. We're talking with cow Buchanan from the New York Times about today's Oscar nominations when I was at the La Times before I came to KPCC along with a team of reporters spent a year investigating the membership of the academy. At that time we found that it was ninety. Four percent percents Caucasian. The median age was sixty two. It was seventy-seven percent male in the years. Since and certainly on the heels of the Hashtag Egg Oscarssowhite the academy has gone to incredible steps to try to diversify its membership but the academy like the Mafia. You're in for life life. Do you think the voting today really represents that older demographic in the kind of reluctance to embrace anything outside of parasite that feels like a modern movie. Well I think that's the thing about the Oscars and that's the reason we keep talking about it. Every year they make steps forward they make steps backward record. It is a big organization several thousand people so as much as you diversify it. There will be diverse opinions. You know last year. We had add Oscar history with them like Black Panther where it won best costume design best production design first time. A black woman had one those things you also had green book win which many consider to be sort of a retrograde racial issues claptrap. I think the academy is big enough to to be able to stay in both of those points of view and it's worth noting that the academy doesn't really run the business in any way it is only recognizing the movies that we're getting made and the jobs that are being given by people who run Hollywood today. La Mayor Eric. Garcetti unveiled an initiative to try to promote lat next talent he hopes up to double Latino Representation in Hollywood by twenty thirty. But what is it gonNA take for the industry to start making more diverse film so that the Oscars can recognize more verse films while the Oscars don't make movies but they affect the movies that get made and I think it's important to talk about that because this is sort of a cycle where all of these things feed each other movies that are greenland movies that are cast with certain people were made by certain people. They're made that way often. And because of what we are told important by the Oscars as much as the Oscars sort of say. Well we can only do so much given the films that Hollywood gives us. The Hollywood gave them plenty of amazing films. This year that were sort of disregarded out of hand I think because we don't again ascribe the same wait to certain stories. Outside of white men doing violent dramatic weighty things Kyle Buchanan is the carpet Arpey bagger The New York Times Kyle. Thanks for having us over to the Los Villas Bureau of the New York Times. I'm glad you guys could come up next on the frame we hear from Oscar nominee. Cynthia revox Vivo and Renee Zellweger. Welcome back to the frame. I'm John Horn British actress. Cynthia Revox is an academy award nominee for her performance in Harry and she's the only person of color among this this year. Twenty acting nominees. The movie directed and Co Written by Casey Lemons tells the story of how Harriet Tubman escaped from slavery and became a heroic. ROIC abolitionist when I spoke with a revox about playing tubman. I asked her how shooting in Virginia. During a cold autumn helped her get into character. It was sort of imperative for me to try and do as much as I possibly could as authentically as could do it so I opted out of the wetsuit opted out of any like extra extra warming things was doing the activities just because I didn't want to I don't want to feel comfortable really I I liked the uncomfortable of the of the work that I was doing. Because I felt like it made me I guess it gave me the space to be more connected to her connected to what what she may have gone through So that the reaction was genuine and felt real. So yeah I do. I do think it really helps in doing these. Actions to to be connected connected to the
A look at Fred C. Trump's view of the world
"The pioneers important ship with Rolex when Donald Trump was announcing his candidacy for presidency. He said the American dream is dead and talked about how he was going to put America first now. Both of those phrases would certainly have been familiar to Fred. See Trump indeed so Frederick Chris trump to give him his full name. That was a family name. But it's hard not to enjoy the laugh. He who was of course. Trump's MM father now people have slightly misread. The sometimes in assumed that because Fred trump was an adult in the twenty s that he must have been trump's grandfather and in fact reviews of my book talked about Fred Trump as his grandfather. No no no the point is he's his father. We forget and I think to our peril first of all how old Donald Trump is as. He was born in Nineteen forty-six and secondly that he was the son of a much older father. So Fred See. Trump actually was a young man in this era that I'm talking about in the twenty s and so the world that he inhabited was this America. First `isolation xenophobic eugenicist world. Like Tom Buchanan Bannon. That took that stuff for granted it was a highly racist society and even the more progressive people were of course very very racist and many of their attitudes kids and Fred trump raised donald trump. You know in the forties in my view to with this worldview and basically what I'm saying the book is the apple doesn't fall Oliver far from the tree and trump has said over and over again how much he admires his father how much he adheres to his father's worldview most importantly in my live you the thing he said over and over and over again is that he is a believer in eugenics. Now trump himself never remembers the word eugenics. But that's neither here nor there. The attitudes that he's espousing he says over and over again. He's given dozens of interviews. You easy to find just Google Donald Trump and eugenics and you see him on video for twenty years thirty thirty years saying that. He's a believer in what he calls the gene theory. or He's a believer in jeans. He believes in what he thinks of as the racehorse theory of genes. which is that when you get a superior type person and you marry that superior type person to another superior type person you get superior type people that is eugenicist and that is very clearly what he believes? Leaves end in Fred. Trump's world that idea was America first and you can place for trump historically right at the heart of does indeed so in one thousand nine twenty seven it was actually just at the peak of America first political traction it was just starting to lose credibility Partly because of the way that it had been monetize so it was getting associated with corruption. Both by the clan in with a very corrupt Chicago mayor from my hometown the most corrupt city in America. A A guy called big Bill Thompson. Who was using America first to try to? It was a money making scheme. Also some things never change anyway so it was about to kind of really lose credence but at the peak of it in nineteen twenty seven in Queens which of course is where Donald trump would eventually grow up. It's where Fred trump was already living at that point and there was a memorial Oriole Day parade in May nineteen twenty seven at which the clan controversial had been permitted to March. They were given a permit now. This incident has since trump's election and been aronie ASLI described as Klan Rally and. I think it's important that we note the distinction. It was a Memorial Day parade at which the veterans were marching and the Red Cross was marching and children were marching and there were twenty thousand spectators. Not because they wanted to support the clan but because they were there for national parade but the Klan had as I say controversially been given permission mission to March in this parade as long as they weren't roped was what the police told them and it was a first amendment issue again about the right to assemble in the right to free speech. And so you can see why they said that they could. But they couldn't be hooded and gowned and some of them decided to be hooded and gown and scuffles broke out among the twenty thousand spectators. Because some actually objected to it as hate speech just as we would today some defended on the basis of freedom of speech just as people would today so these kind of scuffles broke out and it turned into a full blown riot. Twenty thousand people fighting over the clan in Queens and out of that twenty thousand six men were arrested five of whom self identified the police reports as clansmen and the sixth was Fred see trump. Now that is not proof that Fred trump was clansman and again some people have said arrests shows that he was. I don't think that does I don't think we can make quite that step. But it is remarkable to me that out of twenty thousand people the only six were arrested five of clansmen and one of them was trump. And what I do say in the book is that and I firmly believe this. Is that whatever we think Fred. Trump's reasons for being there might have been. He was not there to protest the clan and we know that because of his later record on race relations he was so racist when he started his property property development in the nineteen fifties which by the way he got from government loans. So all of these guys who you know they hate government handouts. But that's how Fred trump got his start was from a government handout and there was some kind of it is indeed it was he was hauled up before Congressional Committee to admit that he wildly overstated the cost of his loans which is in the book some might call fraud so he defrauded the government went to get handouts and then these and then his son is telling us that handouts are terrible and nobody should have handouts and out of this. He built these tenements. He built these housing projects in the New York area in Brooklyn Brooklyn and Queens and his policies for renting to tenants in these housing projects. Were so racist that Woodie Guthrie in the nineteen fifties wrote a song about how racist it was because he lived in one of them. It's called Almond trump. And it's about how racist Fred trump was and you have to be racist in the fifties to get people's attention for our racist assist. You are by one thousand nine hundred ninety three which was the year that Donald Trump took over the trump property empire from his father. They were sued by the Nixon Administration. Restauration for racial discrimination. And again you know the Nixon administration was not going out of its way to sue over racial discrimination it had to be so gratuitous for the Nixon administration to go after them and then of course in the case of Donald there are things like the central park five the five black men wrongly accused of raping a woman in Central Park. He called for the death penalty. Not with them. They were totally exonerated by DNA. He has never apologized. He has never said that he still calls it. A miscarriage of justice and it was a miscarriage of justice but not in the way that he thinks. So what I say is that although we cannot say that Fred trump was a card carrying member of the KKK. He was arrested with five of them and nothing that he ever did in the rest of his misbegotten life makes me think that he was there to argue against the clamp. Do you think a trump. Donald trump has a full understanding branding given how ignorant and he missed. His supporters appears to be an understanding of the origin of these phrases. And can they be reinterpreted in a positive way so first of all. I think that be the best way to understand. This is that it's like it's a world view that he grew up with. He's profoundly racist. We have so much evidence to see. How racist he is does? Does he know the detailed history of this. Of course not in fact historians don't know that detailed history of this Ri- wouldn't have written the book so nobody knows it but the fact that America first has these meanings meanings is definitely not lost to history and the KKK kept it alive underground. And all of these Neo Nazi groups and right wing groups kept this phrase alive and there's lots of evidence at that they would have rallies in the sixties and say it's an America first rally you can find the flyers and handbills and stuff. So there's lots of ephemeral evidence over the years that they kept this phrase alive and now they're using it on Neo Nazi message boards. It's on the daily stormer on storm. Front it's on their websites. So these guys have always used that phrase and when and David Duke who of course is the the most senior member of the KKK in America when he endorsed Donald Trump. He did so using that phrase he said he stands for what I've always stood for. He stands for America. Erica I it is a racist dog whistle and certainly trump's advisors know that Steve Bannon does read history. And Steve. Bannon doesn't know this Steve. Bannon also resuscitated facilitated a phrase called economic nationalism which he talks about all the time and most people don't realize that economic nationalism was part of the America first platform in Nineteen Nineteen and nineteen twenty and it was to keep America out of the League of nations to keep it from signing the treaty of Versailles because Europe was a cabal of overlords who wanted to create a global economy and they were going to make America a vassal state. which should sound pretty familiar? And it's not only about the ways that has shaped American political debates but of course it sounds an awful lot like the way that people talk about Brexit and as we know Bannon has been closely involved Cambridge analytica which he was on the board of has been closely involved with both of these campaigns and and his idea of economic nationalism is a hundred year old America first agenda. He did not pluck that phrase out of the air. Stephen Miller who remains trump's senior senior advisor he's the author of the policy that separating immigrant families at the southern border. He was also clearly. The author of the speech that trump gave in the oval office when he argued for his wall so he Stephen Miller also knows this stuff and the other phrase that was really associated with America. I which which I spent a lot of time explaining in the book was one hundred percent American which was another code and Stephen Miller on his high school yearbook page that he was one hundred percent American. So these guys do know these codes and I don't know that Donald Trump understands all of this history and understands how all of it intersects but he knows that it all supports his basic world view which is a eugenicist assist world view and that is the one that he learned from his father who also knew that this stuff was America first and it wouldn't surprise me at all if he had grown up in the fifties hearing his father. Talk about America. I that wouldn't surprise me one little bit. So is the American dream dead and do we revive it by putting America first in my view is that we shouldn't try it's like saying. Can we resuscitate tate. Heil Hitler will you could. But why would you want to. I want to do the opposite which is to discredited with.

I'm not even sure that he had his regular program I think he was filling in On on ABC radio In Sydney and was doing Christmas Missa lead up to Christmas. I it was a live show in the big hole at the ABC Ultimo Centre in Sydney and And said there was an audience there and he'd sit look. Can you come along long seeing seeing a Christmas song. And it'd be nice to have something sort of funny and you know and he he's always been a bit like right is a Song Song Colin and even whenever I do his program. He's the expectation is that all have written a song for the occasion which is which has not been an onerous task on this occasion. I just said ahead the thought that no I. What if what if I fiddled around with jingle bells and it was like dashing through the bush a rusty halden suit and it was virtually driving in there? This was coming together so it was real Bus ticket sort of June. Where Rod got their chicken was finishing the song that sort of that sort of thing and And I sent saying it. And it was like they'd recorded it and they started playing it it on the radio and people with. What's this song so I just read? This is back in nineteen ninety-three snotty three. I think so I I. I had album just about to come out and we recorded that song with the band just popped it on the end of the album and Two two zero fanfare and probably probably some scratched heads because it was a country album and then at the end of it was was Ozzie. Jingle bells but Tom and I just thought I I've seen this on connect so A little bit lighter friend of mine and I were talking Champs Greg Champion and I said I think there's an album of songs we should ride. A whole lot of Australian is D- Christmas Christmas songs and we jingle bells can sort of be the flagship and And let's. Let's make an album called Ozzy Christmas with back our champs and I'm sorry not in ninety four. That's what we did. We released it. Christmas ninety ninety four and down and that was the beginning of the OSCE Christmas Avalanche for for us because that album went platinum that year it was an unexpected success and And it was Dick the shed with bits of wattle and frosty rusty. The Elbow Santa Claus has got a new truck. And I think it was just that sense that We love those Christmas. Dismiss traditions the something cozy and and reassuring and familiar about them. And and the song's about snow and so forth you know have a certain charm to them. mm-hmm chestnuts roasting on an open fire. And I think they just ozzy sort of shared the jerk that Actually that's sort of not not only. Is it not happening here. Not really hot but it has zero cultural sort of two in reality so it was not it. was that sort of irreverence reverence that That made Ozzy Christmas really get traction and it's become one of the CD's that sit in with the Christmas decorations and it's like gets pulled at the November. The eight also. And it's like Oh let's play Kurt Spas and So it's really become this institution I I I was. I was contacted by Scholastic progressive who really the leading kids picture book. produces produces in Australia and And their boss Andrew Beckett said Lagarde Think it'd be great to do a children's book on Ozzy Jingle Oh bells. Is that something you'd be happy to do and And you know it absolutely. Yes and so. That became the beginning of a number of those songs from Ozzy Christmas Back on Champs that that that got either adapted adapted into children's picture books and and in a number of other ones as well which they say we we've been thinking it'd be nice to do x y and attended to be seasonal records and astrid dried in that they like to inject in the in the picture books a bit of a story to to to it so that was a different sort of challenge so shared with bits of Waddell. It became a story of ALMETCO woman who had decorated. He's he's shed and then a big blow came through and destroy Roydon while I was asleep really dejected. All all the animals can I mean and redecorated with with bits of Bush blooms and so forth and AH big surprise. And that's what I think. So so that's been nice. Because they found their way they've had a musical element to them. And I've twelve days of Christmas too and they found a way into Preschools schools and Christmas pageants and PSI. Force are sort of Bannon. Yeah I've just been In the Christmas Christmas Guy In some ways you know hold the franchise or anything. It's But it's been caught a over the years quite a big pad of Yeah Yeah my my songwriting catalog. And it's been a NAS NAS contribution might that's very cool. This podcast is trying to improve some some of the world's most pressing problems one of them. Obviously I've talked to you about Christmas and yet he's I think because Christmas is the most incredibly stressful time of year when it comes to navigating shopping centers end of year concerts and Christmas parties and even the stress of getting together as a family and catering battering it can be a nightmare times so I came to ask you. What shall we do about Christmas? Colin how are we going to make it. Less stressful is for what stresses you at festival. Well you know. I think you've summed it up a little in the questions that just that deadline. I mean it can be hard. You know what presents to buy What what do people really need? That's a very that's that's stepping into the The underworld underwhelmed there. If you if you now culture and acid side you start asking that question you pretty much come up with the answer. Actually we pretty much need almost nothing thing and And yet we're buying so much for each other so look a few a few helpful hacks. Christmas heck's away Pam we do the the by for one person not by for lots of people I when the key amongst the adults are families a bit bigger So Oh in the extended family. We pull names out of a hat and I just by Roddy Suzanne and so it's like a hundred dollar present variety Suzanne rather rather than five twenty eight fifty dollars presents. So I actually sort of saves money as well but you buy and you you buy what Auntie Suzanne says I actually I really liked this this gym gear or something so I so Uh that's that's what I I mean. Some people say oh. I like giving presents to everyone and I wouldn't sort of hard and fast because families are different but but that's sort of helpful because then you know people are not necessarily opening things I think. Oh goodness what do I do that. I needed green green handbag handbag. Just calling Yeah So so we do that. I also think The Non Christmas Day family gathering can take the pressure off. We've had some really good two weeks before Christmas Day. Christmas gatherings and an quite quite loud that the traffic's not as crazy you because that's that's horrible thing about Christmas Day in the city In Sydney it's you could be stuck in a traffic jam on Christmas. Stay as you think. What are we doing here? What are the what are these people doing here? And then you think on. Oh I'm one of them Yup My My sister buys ham on Christmas Eve. At you know whatever SUV market might be. But she just goes in you know at at nine o'clock and And they reduce all the Hams and And she's got superbug Ans. That's been of a risk though. Because he might know hands correct. Yeah Yeah Ed's I think it's more I wouldn't try that at the butcher but Our arm inclined to think Yeah generally generally. I think the one thing that I've noticed don't do it with casted. There was a world custard shortage a couple years back. Everyone's talking about it. You know it was basically hit the headlines but yeah I know what you're left with is like Pinnacle Lada custard left there and can you imagine turning up with Christmas dinner and then you wake the cast of neurons and out to dive in and you've got the Jaffa custard. Everyone is what is this. What have you done? uh-huh sorry there was no regular chunky custody laughing so yeah it's a by a cast it early but I reckon you can probably get away with you know you'll you'll end up getting a a ham sixty eighty percent off because I don't want to send the Cabinet and Look if you can shop early. I mean planning always pays as off because it's those last couple of weeks where I out at local big shopping center They they've opened up the sort of the school next door.
"buchanan" Discussed on What Shall We Do About...?
"This is what shall we do about with San uh-huh hello and welcome to. What shall we do about the show where we try to improve some of the world's less pressing problems today? Teased is the season Christmas trays up. FREE POX in shopping centers. A few an interview concerts and Christmas parties have filled out evenings. Christmas is the existing well and truly before we reached December twenty five. So what shall we do about Christmas joining me to discuss. It is country music singer and foam apply school host. Who has released plenty of Christmas? Music Within Ozzy Twist is Colin Buchanan. Very excited on the PODCAST Swig to be speaking with you. Mr Colin Buchanan. Hello Greetings Sam. Now now we are in different places but that's fine because you know it's Christmas emotionally You know made a physically also thinking geographically. That's that's fine that's fine. We're just I'm just getting a feel for the time of the PODCAST. Yes we are in different places Christmas time and so it's hard to get together But you spend most of December touring around playing Christmas. Carol events is a do and I call them. My Christmas crazies then An and I mean it's it's it's it's sort of crazy but it's delightful Because my daughter and son-in-law I'm living just for a short time in the U. K.. And they've been really dismayed as the days get shorter and the nights get longer and and the weather gets called our and wetter. And it's it's like the whole the whole country sort of closes up on itself and whereas Austrailia it's luck we. We never really had that experience in winter anyway but but summaries lock it cracks open and So it's really beautiful that That way to have these outdoor events at Christmas time which we take for granted now and We used to the carols by candlelight type events whether they beat they the big large scale events or or the semi lodge Galvin's which there are lots of which is sort of the portable stage age set up in the park and a few thousand people from the local community. Turn or as they're doing down the road which is not done it for a few years. We back on the National Park and Nice it up a few days and put a chalkboard out the front of the House and say You know on the twelfth having some carols amongst the gum trees and and they found you know fifty hundred. I think it's probably growing a little bit more. They bring their folding chairs and the blankets and they sit out there and seeing a few carols together data and that was my yes answer yes I do get around to a number of carols and but I do love that when when all when the weather lines open it's it's a good event you just think this is amazing just being outdoors and must be broken hill with the same guy down the desert di Mare in the You know in in in the guts of Sydney Just a massive people just chilling out and just taking time together to sing and celebrate elaborate. Christmas it's really lovely. So yeah I turn up and do my thing. I'd love to go back to when you were little. Cullen I'd love to hear some of your favorite Christmas memories growing up. Maybe some stories. What was it growing up? That was specialty about Christmas. Well I'd be lying if I didn't say gifts. Yes yes sir. Yeah you're the thought that And Look I think Just generally I think we are in Dona sound sound like an old guy he but I think our general wealth as a society now disposable income has increased and that's made Made for I think we like for nothing in the sorts of gifts that are you know unite bat an eyelid. Anyway I I loved gifts and so I can remember choosing what the and I wasn't always given the opportunity to choose especially it's strangely if I was able to choose the there was a hot wheels. One of those tracks they put on the back. Then you put them on the table. I went battery-operated. You check attract attach one end of the track to the table and have a little loop and then it got into the floor. You'd just drop your car down and it seems very simple but you know I got got to choose that in the toy department and then it got taken away and wrapped up and And we weren't allowed in the front room As the as the present sort of were stacked around the tree and ASSOC shake them. Well actually. No I'm confusing two stories. Why I remember the exclusions iron is because one year I got I? Twenty four inch green malvern staubach from shine cycles at river would and of course I had to go in there and I sat on an got set up you know wrought for Oh me and then I said why not get this Christmas. My dad literally roped the door shot of the lead and when and when they went there I I mean and my dad he could not tie an eye regulation not to save his life but he he just invented vented knots and say whatever that sort of mythical noughties that was it was it EXCALIBUR was anti sword. That could cut it but Anyway hydrants. Not Anyway I I. I was struggling with his door. I got the slightest little peek in to see that you know just Just a glimpse of the the green frame of the malvern star. Styron was so full of anticipation about getting that box out gifts gifts of always had played a big pot hot and we didn't have an extended family because I immigrated from Ireland I was You know we. We didn't have an extended family. Only to celebrate Christmas with so Christmas was very much Justa family. There was no traveling on Christmas Day which actually was quite nice so it was very centered around just are higher And my my parents my mom being Irish and deadening English Roy smell with all the trappings was was critical to the successful celebration. Russian Christmas so we we lived in essentially it was a fibro house and just the memories of just steam and sweat and gravy gravy and roast potatoes and bobbling barely with an inch. They live boiled vegetables. And I'm reportings. And just add in the kitchen just a cacophony of dirty pods and cooking stuff. And and everyone getting hotter and hotter honor and hotter you know as it sort of finally exploded into this sort of table full of Of Food was really you know. That's a really fond eh fond memory and And in in the background of that I do remember I was. I turned six just after we arrived in Australia. But at Christmas was very I remember particularly last Christmas which was a white Christmas in Dublin Ireland which was unusual. It doesn't always snow in In Dublin at Christmas time but there was sleds and Snyman slime in and Built in the back garden and Yeah the experience of Christmas we went into Dublin to look at the lights There was a sunroof for some reason. not not something you need in a car in in Ireland and four days a year but we open the sunroof and deadlines. Let us stand on the seats and We looked out the window of a mini station wagon and Drive down the streets of Dublin city looking at the the Christmas slots and Site that has a pretty fond memories and we were part out of a church there a Presbyterian church so quite a quite a minority in Dublin. Being partisans and dumb just have very strong memories of the Christmas Christmas story. Both sort of being told you know very much from the gospels in are not not not time yet just just quite straightforward would And and some of the imagery you know the sort of silhouetted wise men. Somehow you know that the style you know that they're they're all sort of it's an amalgam of of experiences of of a little boy that The and thus to hang onto as well fast forward to Nail Your Your Dad. You probably have your traditions in the Buchanan household. What happens for you at Christmas time I mean it's something quite lovely about up becoming a dad and having a family and thinking. Oh we can. We can create some traditions of of Iran. It's something caught special when kids come along so I mean L. at kids now but Having little ones and getting a tree we'd get down to the southern highlands and Cut Our own Christmas tree three and we go with other families and so it was a great adventure of walking around the paddock full of trays and choosing which one you'd You'd chop down and Take dragging it back to the The tree netting guy and so you know probably get in the trial and heading home and then decorating it and and then at some stage. I think everyone got busier. And we thought actually it's time to To get one of these prefab trees but the going down the tray okay from From up in the attic and pulling out the Christmas decorations and getting all the Christmas music fodder which now it's a bit different with the the in the world of streaming music music but but the something quite delightful about the box of Christmas CDs that are dragged out and And and off we go with the I don I like you know. We found some new favorites. Actually like the Rod Stewart Christmas album. We love that one is a James Tyler Christmas album which is a which is a cracker And we just pull up the Christmas music and play that wall with decorating the tree. And that's that's been something really lovely that marks. It's the beginning of not just Christmas time. But that sort of Summa summa season you anticipate what's what's beyond the you know the the slow consumption of the left Davis through some days without any worked to interrupt and has always been with extended family now we sort of leapfrog between different pats Orion home and around different parts of Sydney to celebrate Christmas with With extended family as well. So that's got its iron nice sort of rhythm to it as well and You know it's precious to be a look back at You know as you get older you. Oh you know parents. My Dad's not longer with us and my father-in-law's well so we've had you know Christmas time to sort of just think think about the legacy that they've had in allies and and And to sort of that in some ways make you treasurer physical presence with each other oil picking up on that. It reminds me of a few years ago about five or six years now. Maybe more that my wife's Nan died on Christmas Eve and way just arrived in the town in Regional Victoria to have Christmas with the family and the happened on Christmas Eve. And we're getting all these take on Christmas Day saying Merry Christmas and this is one of those their mind is for us. That Christmas is not always easy now. And that's a I think that's I was I was watching a special on or a film about the the Straits Songwriter. Paul Kelly Last night in fact and one of these great songs is how to make gravy and which you listeners. My might not be familiar with and By way of introduction there was some live footage of him and He said he heard original version of white Christmas. Yes and And it's actually There's a verse in. It doesn't really is written by even billion and I want to great American Eric. Sort of sunrise and He this verse that's-That's often not sung is about palm trees. And it's sort of set in California someone I and so it's it's not a what. Christmas is palm trees and and and clear skies sunny skies. And so that's why they're dreaming of this. What Christmas sements and he he his way into writing how to make gravy was? It's it's about what Christmas is about not having being a white Christmas and about so you know he. He's beautiful picture is a story of a fella in prison on the fire or writing a letter to back to his family and being denied the opportunity to gather with family and Amongst other things of course saying I remember he always made the gravy you know..
New bill would make animal cruelty a federal felony
"Late yesterday the U.

How Do You Prepare for Bootcamp?
"Mentioned Queer Karma briefly at the top interview tell me a little bit more about it what it is and why you decided to start it crew coma essentially as a social network for people that WANNA become software engineers through coating oops Northstar is helping people made the most important career decisions and like I said before the first decision we're helping people makers which caught campus but for them so going back to our original story my cofounders cody boo cows Hacker Nab Academy I worked in education and I worked with different people we started this podcast and over a few years we were able to hear a lot of consistent issues that people had and this like minimum barrier level of social skills that people really needed and we were able to essentially help people go from preparing for Buchanan in one to three months to three week process that we started calling the twenty one days case is that you can see on twitter that started gone doc pretty viral and every minute people were tweeting about the company and we're like wow that's pretty interesting and it was an idea at the time so then we're like why don't we accrue some of the best software engineers and designers in the world to like productized this experience and essentially how people get into the schools for three weeks and see if that will be helpful for the schools what we realize is that the people that weren't getting in weren't getting jet because they weren't competent they just weren't prepared and Outta school were spending a lot of time and money trying to prepare them and talking to people that they didn't WanNa talk to because they weren't ready and they wanted to prioritize their time talking to people that we're ready so we kind of created this triple bite slash hired dot com experience that would prequalify and nurture individuals for they got into a coding bootcamp and that way the schools could emit people without interviews that's essentially where we started everything so during Y. combinator taught us to focus on getting a hundred people into the APP that will love us and we'll start off his trying to get one hundred people onto the APP turned into two hundred people downloading the APP every single day and US sending a ton of volume to the schools to the point where we realized that after what combinator we had to build software to help them to handle the volume in the capacity and the reason why this is extremely important is because if you think about college college is only graduate for the thousand people per year and computer science and cutting boot camp so graduating in about thirty to forty thousand people per year for over half an open jobs and so there's hundreds of thousands of jobs available and all this talent that wants these jobs but they don't know how to prepare for the job so we're like why don't we right the people that didn't go to college that want to do count to the right boot camps and also prepare them for it and then essentially have trust with them to not just to get them into the who can't finish the boot camp but also get them into their first job in their next job for the rest of their life because most staffing firms they'll just place you on your first job and then don't forget about you but if people are moving from job to job to job just like we all did the lifetime values way bigger and we'll be able to navigate them for the rest of their life and so once we get it right for software engineers that we could expand to other skill sets and go from there the biggest reason why we started coding bootcamp is because they were the first institution to take income share agreements at scale and for the people that don't know what an income share agreement is is essentially a option to pursue a career with the having to pay anything unless you get a job and the school promises to get to a Daba above a certain salary and if you get that job salary than you agree to pay the teachers the amount that you always know and that you can always afford is a very big difference than than traditional students and they're spreading night just to new cutting boot camps but to sail schools today's schools and even the colleges themselves and so once we provide this for south engineers expand to other skill sets and that create the largest community of people with in demand skills but also the most powerful staffing firm because we're focused on the invisible workforce meaning people that didn't go to college versus the visible workforce and eventually are two will be able to use by both sides so let's go back to the twenty one C K Challenges I think that's really interesting that sounds like that's been a large part of the growth that you've seen today what is that challenge what does that process look like the fourth day introduces them into like what code is and gets them to essentially declare that they want to become software engineer and after they made that declaration we encourage them to do take a quiz they share what their goals are and what their needs are and then we matched them what the right preparation material for the coating hamper cutting boot camps that are relevant for them and they are interacting with people at their level one step above them so every day for explaining to them now what code is but different aspects about education technology companies and the admissions process through school but I think most importantly what we do we put them into a group of five to twenty people that we call squads that essentially become accountability buddies that helped them not distort the pro for program finish it and also stay with them during the bootcamp and even after and if you think about squads is very similar to Muir twenty more we essentially have been with each other F- elastic years and haven't been apart from each other for more than fourteen days and we've essentially been with each other through thick and thin and if you think about the sports it might be through war as a veteran or whatever and so we essentially help people develop friendship to the acquisition of a skill that's difficult so that they have essentially that support system to help them manage the psychology that came from the original blog posts and the reason why we chose twenty one days is because takes twenty one days to make a habit and habits are really important when you're trying to do something hard after developing that good habit we tell them ninety days to make it sticky and the average person gets accepted into three to five boot camps after twenty one days tell me a little bit more about this idea of having a squad because throughout this interview it's really clear that having the right people around you is important why is it important specifically when you're learning to code the reason why it's important is because like life in general gets built through license ships and so when you think about someone that's learning to code on their own so let's say you learn how to Code and you have all the schools in the world and you you finish a boot camp and you get the job search and you never went to college or the biggest issues that you're gonNA face is getting the shot demonstrate that you actually have the skill because if you apply to the website you're going to get flagged naturally because our artificial tangent says like naturally looking for degrees or your GPA and things like that even though companies have dropped their college requirement so what an individual normally has to do if they didn't go to college is like identify other people that are like them that are willing to give them an interview and vouch for them to put their reputation on the line so they could skip the normal quitting process and if you develop those relationships early on you're able to leverage those in the future and you can only get introductions like through other people and so these quads deep are working through they become friends for life and once you get placed into your first company everybody is not always going to get at the same company they'll be different companies they'll be able to vouch for each other and introduce each other to different opportunities throughout their lifetime has these people are making different decisions by the career and so is very organic we encourage every single person to send messages and to read out to each other and ideally when they form squad to not just form by interest but also format based off of location so we're starting to happen is the online and offline worlds are starting to connect where people aren't just meeting out for happy hours they're meeting up with their Atlanta squad at a cost offers shop in coating together and it's like meeting a person and getting to know each other which is like really awesome we recently had a guy with a kid's destiny tabled through his prior job that just got accepted into lambda cool and he moved his entire family from philly twelve Lanta to be close to a squad members so I pretty powerful stuff
Joe Walsh: Strongly considering primary challenge to Trump
"Donald trump's approval rating among republicans sit somewhere between eighty or ninety percent which is pie although that comes with a bit of an asterisk asterisk which is that trump is driven a lot of people away from identifying as republicans people like michigan congressman justin amash who called for trump's impeachment and who was a republican in good standing but has now switched to being an independent. He's the kind of person who wouldn't show up one of those polls. Here's the fundamental problem. There are a number of self described conservatives who do not like like donald trump but most don't really have any political base or power and that's the problem facing anyone wants to mount a primary challenge the president and the g._o._p. And yet interestingly thinly enough there are people who want to give it a shot anyway for massachusetts governor. William weld is in he has declared he is running now. Former south carolina governor and congressman mark sanford former former illinois congressman and talk show radios joe walsh appear closer during the race and challenging the president and anthony scaramucci says he's going to rustle up a bunch of ex trumpers to take the president on as well ultimately the stakes. Here may be mostly about donald trump. Som psyche almost certainly going to trounce any republican challenges him and yet. There's a lot of reporting that suggests team is obsessed with staving off primary challenges here discuss a reagan administration official and share the center for equal opportunity linda chavez and former tea party activists been how the author of the immoral majority new book about evangelical and trump in co host of the fifth estate podcast linda. I don't know i guess i'm skeptical optical but i'm seeing all those noises it looks like sanford and walsh will get in scaramucci is trying to rustle up some group of folks. Is there anything here you think well. I mean if you look back back at what happened to president. George herbert walker bush in nineteen ninety-two he did get challenged by pat. Buchanan obviously buchanan's challenge well. I think stronger than any of the people we've been talking about are going to be able to muster against trump did harm him and i think it set him up for ultimate failure in the general election. I think that's what this is. All about. None of these guys that we're talking about are likely to defeat donald trump unless trump goes evan farther off the rails and then we've seen him so far but being able to damage him being able to come at him as walsh might from the right could could have some impact and might dampen
