Being the ninety deal to ninety ten guy where it's like every mba player has ninety percent stuff you love and then there's ten percent and for some people it's not that glaring and then for other people it's just like banging you over the head with a baseball bat and his ten percent has always been the most glaring of anyone and you see it just on display all the time in these games where i say it on my pot on thursday.

I've because i've never really been good friends with somebody who's had to root for this and house is like it's like he's in the labor delivery room after. His wife gave had a eighteen hour childbirth. After every wizards game this is like just the westbrook experience. The game thursday. He was all over the map and then some reason intentionally filed with the lead. To get six foul saturday he is terrible shock gets fouled to win the game makes both free throws which i knew he would cause he's weirdly clutch and got the keep walk to end the game in overtime and it's like he's just all over the place in so many different ways in you never forget he's out there and it goes back to what you the joke you had about carson edwards like. He really thinks he's the best player in the league. He really does. He doesn't think anyone's better than him. No no him. It's on an act either quarterback like. Hey are you one of the best quarterbacks in the league. rg three set. And he's again right back in the league guys take it easy but time like again. I get why he answered that way. Rg didn't believe it. And i'm not knocking them for answering. If that would be westbrook. You're right there's no lie. There's no lie there. He's not lying to him. Said well you know. I think he lied himself but he doesn't believe it's ally there's some stockholm syndrome shit. That goes on with his teammates because we saw it in. Okay see too.

"Not be My victory alone or our victory alone would be a victory for the American people for Democracy for America. There will be no blue states and red states when we win. Just the United States of America. God bless you all. And may God protect our troops. Thank you. All right. You've been listening to vice President Joe Biden. I was just kind of waiting to see if he's taking some questions from anybody there, but it doesn't seem so. He spoke for about five minutes, of course J Center at the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware. Really? I think the main message of this, saying that he is confident he and his team that they will remain victorious. After all the states are called. He does believe that they will have those 270 votes. Electoral college votes that will give him the White House. But his point was about saying what he might have run as a candidate as a Democrat, that the result. As president. He will be an American and he will be ruling not ruling. I should say, but running the country for everyone, no red, no blue states, he said. Specifically, I also thought it was interesting that he talked about an extraordinary turnout. We've talked about that a lot here at Bloomberg and that Ah Ah lot of people came out to vote Specifically, I want to bring in our Bloomberg News. White House correspondent Josh Wingrove. So Josh Vice President Joe Biden coming out looking very cool, calm and collected. Saying he expects to be victorious. But of course, awaiting the outcome like everyone else. Quick speech five minutes Why did he do that? Because Trump is trying to declare victory in crucial things that look like they're about to swing the bite, and there's sort of two speeches you can give in this kind of situation. One is like we're feeling good about our chances. We want every vote to be counted it, Senator Joe Biden give a version of that speech last night and kind of just now. Bye bye, Preston my pants give a version of that speech that our guest is just a early this morning, But Trump is declaring victory. Oh, are cute, you know, in particular states but also accusing are putting in activations of fraud or broadly. The Trump campaign today declared victory in Pennsylvania, where there's still a million votes to be counted. Those votes are mail ballots disproportionately from Philadelphia and conclude and Pittsburgh. Excuse me. They're likely to skew heavily Democrat and they will make this a close race if not by then lead in that state from suing to stop temporarily the counting of those ballots and declaring victory in Pennsylvania. This is highly Unusual. And so Biden, it seems, is coming out more or less to try to calm things down a little bit when his opponent is with, you know, no real basis, in fact, declaring Victory in Pennsylvania, one of the crucial swing. It's no network has called sense of any of the state of Pennsylvania is still counting ballots. Pennsylvania is still in process. We do not know who has won it. And Trump could win it providing good women We don't know, but this is all very unusual, but Biden right now is either essentially Pennsylvania, Georgia or Arizona. Any one of those three clinches it provided because you've been called, is the winner of the conference. And it looks like he's gonna win Michigan. He's already being called. The winner buries under the Trump campaign dispute, If in fact he is And he's already won this, but the Trump campaign is they think that will actually win. Erica. Right, listen, it ultimately comes down to once you have the vote count. It is what it is now, when there are really close, relax elections, whether it's a half a percent of 1%, depending on the state. That is when a candidate can call for a recount, which might make the decision. Go on a little bit longer, Correct. Right? Absolutely there. So they're calling for recounted with constant, for instance, that even Scott Walker is an advisor to the president. I think that's gonna work out so well for them. I mean, Trump is calling for a recount in states where he's lost. He's holding out for counting in states where he's trailing like Arizona and in states where he's winning, But there's still a bunch of ballots counted. He wants about counting to end, so his position depends on the safety you're talking about. Yeah, exactly. In what's already been an unusual election campaign year. It just gets AH little bit funnier as each day goes by. Very Tosh. Thanks so much. I know you've been a busy guy really appreciate checking in with you. Bloomberg News. White House correspondent Josh Wingrove. Joining us on the phone now, despite all the uncertainty, or at least some uncertainty that still exists surrounding the US election summer saying there is a clear victor already and that has to do with domestic cannabis Cos We definitely saw some of these stocks moving today, initially rallying. Then we saw some selling. Some concerns that it wasn't a blue wave, and that might make it a bit tougher for the regulatory environment. When it comes to cannabis. Let's see what Chris Beals has to say He's the CEO of California based read maps. They provide tech and software used by cannabis, consumers and businesses. He joins us on the phone in L. A. Chris, Nice to have you here with us. You've been doing this for a couple of decades involved in this industry where we in the evolution of cannabis, especially based on Some of those ballot initiatives that we saw yesterday, certainly, including in my home state here in New Jersey, where they passed recreational cannabis. Yeah. Thanks for having me. So you know, I think really what we saw here, Wass. I think Alec tenable Landmark Knight in the sense that you had five different states. Ah, passed unanimously ballot initiatives for cannabis legalization. I think it's worth noting that, um, you know what While these ballot initiatives have passed, the hard part is actually still ahead, which is the state's moving forward with legislation and the regulatory framework to support that, right. But you know that being said, I think there were there were fundamental messages that came out of this that I think, actually implicate. The shape and color in which cannabis legalization will occur. Moving forward and undoubtedly, we already know to Jersey, which he specifically mentioned immediately puts a huge amount of pressure on New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Maryland all before with adult use initiatives or sort of legalization regimes. There is still a CZ. You mentioned a federal criminal statute against the industry. You know what's the likelihood that we get something done? Let's assume it is Joe Biden in the White House, but we still have a Congress. That split. I mean, what's the likelihood that we get? I think that we've been talking about just looking at the stocks that initially the rally because of what came out of the election's around the country, but then all of a sudden it because there are less Democrats who seemed to be more sensitive, not sensitive, but more Prone to be, you know, more positive when it comes to doing some regulatory oversight, you know on cannabis, so I do wonder how you see it. Yeah. I mean, I think the 11 of the messages that came out incredibly clearly last night is there is widespread bipartisan support when you look about the code and Mississippi deeply red state in both of those states in Mississippi, in case you have a medical ballot initiative passed with approaching sort of the 70% are actually over a 70% Yes, vote. At the same time, sort of repudiating a ballad and I should have put on by the state that would have limited or crippled the scope the size of the medical system. Conversely, in South Dakota, not just move for adult record her medical legalization, they also before the total use legalization in the face of the governor. Doing no advertisements.

"Let's learn more about the trade Charlie laying it out really beautifully for us on this Wednesday, Vince Signorelli He's with US global macro strategist at Bloomberg News. He contributes to the macro squat desk. You can find it, but just going to squat. Go on your launch pad. Dave Wilson is with US stocks editor of Bloomberg News on the remote access from New Jersey insignia Rela Dave Wilson. Vince, Let's start with you. I don't know about you, but I got about three hours sleep because I just could not go to bed and then watching market reaction. It was just kind of nonstop, but What have you guys been blogging about? They got to do these elections on the weekend sleeping in the next hour. I want my kids. Just a quick headline. Just crossing for you. CNN is calling Wisconsin for biting. That's just hitting our tape. At the moment Markets markets are looking at the lack of a blue wave. As basically being a positive because we will not get the tax hikes that the bite in administration had suggested, because they won't be able to get through. The Senate will also seeing the other side of the coin of this isn't and I must say, I'm really confused that were rallying a CZ faras. We are on this because the other side of the coin is We're not likely to get the big stimulus package. We would have gotten under wave even under Ah Democratic House and Senate with Trump as president, because, while McConnell said this morning that he thinks we should have stimulus before the end of the year, and there was a need for another stimulus package. He's given no indication whatsoever that he's willing to go past that 500 billion mark where you have the house to point to threaten and ATT least Republican president at 1.7. So even if we were to get a stimulus bill, it's going to be a meager one. Not not, the more that the market really is looking for. And the virus hasn't gone anywhere Cases record cases in Europe. When it started there. It came here. There's no reason to believe. You know, everyone's talking about vaccine. Where, right, Right. It's certainly not coming tomorrow. I mean, everybody's working. Good. Yeah, I just don't feel good going to sustain long term, right? And you continue to remind us that folks, the virus is still here. Dave Olsen come on in on this because I'm looking at the best performing groups in the S and P 500 health care, the top communications services information technology. Consumer discretionary. I mean, the first trade feels really big time on today. No, absolutely. And you put those groups together and what do you get? You know, it's not just about taxes or economic stimulus. It's also about you know what happens to the health care system. If it's pretty much status quo him and the potential for a divided government, you know, people are satisfied with that. You certainly see it show up in terms of health care. Best performer among the 11 main industry groups in the S and P 500. That's the health insurers that are, for the most part, leading the way. UnitedHealth anthem signal all up more than 11% at the moment, and then you have the story of bio gel, which is up 44% ofsome positive comments prepared for an FDA advisory panel about it's Alzheimer's drug that was revived last year. So that's a company specific story. But you know drugmakers more broadly or also rally. You know the other side of the coin. You know what Vince talks aboutthe stimulus trade such as it is, you see it show up in the shares of the regional banks were really taking a hit in today's trading. You also see it show up in some of the infrastructure related stocks. Caterpillar Ah, no construction McCue material Cos Mark Mariana Materials, Vulcan materials. They're all taken hits all for what we're seeing, So it's not like people are for getting sort of that. That argument. A ce faras? What happens to the stimulus program? You know, you think about big tack mean they're really you know, that's communication services. That's in information technology as consumer discretionary with amazon dot com, right them altogether, these air cos they're able to grow with regardless of what happens, Economy whatever happens, the stimulus and people are gravitating to him today, as they have for a long time on one point infrastructure. We're gonna check in with the CEO over it. Bam! Build America Mutual because we certainly were watching. Some of the state elections when it came to voting on infrastructure money spending in that area. Hey, Vince, I mean gridlock. Investors tend to like it and it feels like that's what we're going to have. But it does worry me about the people who need stuff right now in our society as we continue to fight the virus and deal with a really weak economy. If there were no virus, I would say this is this is the perfect soup. You know that we have the gridlock in Washington markets like it see gradual growth, gradual changes to the stock market on a positive way and gradual increases earnings. But not only do we have the virus. We also have another election coming up after January, which No one is talking about you going to leave it on the block's shortly layer where the House is up for election after in the Congress now not great expectations that close he won't keep it. I mean, she's really she's fought off challenges in the past, and as as Trump's greatest adversary. I think she's won a lot of points and score a lot of points in our party. But if she is challenged by a progressive That could change the votes. Just a majority, not a super majority in the house. If, for whatever reason that seat the speaker would go progressive. I think the markets would take that very badly thinking that a big new Green deal with becoming the tax hikes. We'd be back into the conversation, etcetera, so just something to keep in your outlook calendar for down the road to be prepared for us. We get into the new year. I'm just telling you my outlook calendars. Mac's dad, I don't have any more room. All right, Vince Signorelli. Thank you. As always, we're going to check in with you Live it later on. He's our global macro strategist at Bloomberg News. Dave Wilson's gonna be back to you with his stock and chart of the day. We are doubling down on the election and the outcome of the next few hours a lot that we know we are expecting to hear from Vice President Joe Biden at some point later today, we're going to look into the road to how we got here and really the road to legal battles. We just mentioned one By the Trump team in terms of the election outcome, So we're going to get into that bloomer contributor Rick Davis, former Republican strategist, former manager of Senator John McCain's presidential campaign He's going to talk about the race is still yet to be called.

"In the blog and hopefully I'll start hearing from some of you folks on what you are looking for otherwise I'm just following my own nose and doing the best I can all right before we get to the M. J. biz show there is one critical thing I want to recognize Major League Baseball who would believe that was started there and its players union announced last week that marijuana will be removed from this list of banned substances and that players will be tested for major opioids cocaine and other drugs in a new treatment based approach to drug use marijuana be treated the same as alcohol the agreement said and suspension forks use will be dropped from the minor league drug program as well players will not be subject to discipline for testing positive for marijuana but rather for conduct while under the influence the announcement between MLB and the association said so was a huge and incredibly huge so what that means is it recognizes the fact that cannabis is being made used medicinally by a number of players not only in baseball but many other sports we had a number of shows we talked about sports in fact we even talked about the hockey league right yeah so NHL has already completely to criminalize detonate they test for it but simply to become aware of the different things people are putting inside their bodies their players that is we all know that in Canada it's adult use legal where the majority of hockey players continue to come from right okay so they figured it out and now the MLB is beginning to figure it out and here's the good news those players that want to deal with inflammation they want to deal with quick recovery time all the dynamics that cannabis and CBT can deliver or now can use the product as they always have been without fear of retribution right players and teams staff will have to attend mandatory education programs in two thousand and twenty and twenty one on the dangers of opioid pain medications and practical approaches to marijuana so were they saying they're saying that we understand opioids are pain killers and when you're in significant pain as a player you still have to go out and play hundreds of two games here at least as many as you can't write okay so they understand that opioids are necessary but must be managed they also understand that marijuana is completely income different than what is an opioid yet at the federal level they're both considered schedule one drugs right however many states and many countries have recognize the differences and heaven for bad now has Major League Baseball the change is going to affect a big if the beginning of two thousand twenty spring training all right talk about opioid testing began following the death of Los Angeles pitcher Tyler Skaggs who was found dead in his hotel room in Dallas in Dallas here in July an autopsy of the twenty seven year old showed off key code on Sentinel and alcohol in the system his death launch discussion about opioids and sports union head Tony Clark said it was difficult to gauge how many players were using opioids players from our side of the equation recognize that there was an opportunity to take a leadership role here in this discussion Clark said players aren't immune to issues that affect all of us and so the situation this year only heightened that brought it even closer to home all right so that indeed is very real ladies and gentleman the fundamental differences between real drug abuse I use the term abuse as opposed to using certain things like cannabis and C. B. D. for medicinal reasons let's agree that is not abuse of that is helping your own personal wellness alright let's move on with the review of the NJ biz show in Las I guess as I mentioned this is considered the most important show in the industry and is attended by virtually everyone in the global world of cannabis members of the cannabis industries brain trust use the first day of M. J. B. is to share predictions for two thousand twenty and describe how changing attitudes in the U. S. might affect future marijuana legalization efforts in his keynote presentation Wednesday Chris Walsh a president an incoming CEO of marijuana business daily reviewed some of the cannabis industry significant wins in the US Canada and other global markets in two thousand nineteen but also underlined and underscores some of the major challenges an example of a big win in two thousand nineteen accord occurred when Illinois became the first state in the country to legalize adult use cannabis cultivation and sail through its legislature meaning the legislator legislature voted and therefore became so but the news from New York and New Jersey was not as good as those states did not move marijuana legalization forward I've discussed the situation and both the York and New Jersey at length on our show and our first segment which y'all's no is cannabis in the tri state plus one and we talk about all of these states of course New Jersey is headed to a public referendum with governor Phil Murphy who was in full support of space but unfortunately can't connect with this state Senate president Stephen Sweeney the Democrat from Gloster who was very unhappy with the governor's executive orders and cannabis since he became governor all right we've also cover New York's governor Cuomo who is also a big supporter of trouble getting the bill out of his own legislatures well both governors believe two thousand twenty will be the year of adult use legalization all right so seven ways and gentleman it's beginning to be broadly understood that cannabis and C. B. D. has medicinal value right while it's not necessarily clinically proven at the level that pharmaceutical products must go through which is years and years of new drug applications of tetra as a supplement as an additive as something to add to your overall health and wellness it is beginning to be generally accepted that good things come from it okay however these governors have a number of challenges ahead of them many of which are political if you go the legislatures they will say that somewhere between eighty five and ninety five percent of our population wants to see adult use medicinal cannabis product right eighty five to ninety five percent Quinnipiac polls poll after poll after poll right well why can't they get it done it is it their responsibility to bring forward legislation that addresses ninety percent of their patient population excuse me in this case the voting population of course it is why can't they get it done flips like it to get done just don't work together they can't get it done for the same reason they get out their own way we can't get things out of the federal level either because everybody seems to be in cement so if you're a Republican and you take position and again I'm a Democrat and I take position bay or the opposite right by definition we start disagree right as opposed to looking for what's in the best interest of our constituency and moving forward on that level alright let's move on California marijuana companies have also struggled with a very challenging business and regulatory environment and headlines around layoffs resulted was another big discussion M. J. bids while this issue was just top line of the conference I want to bring some additional perspective so here you go some industry watchers say they predicted a substantial down turn in cannabis in California now that it has become a three year regulated adult you state right they first saw the rush to invest in fledgling marijuana companies with unrealistic revenue targets they warn against hefty taxes from the state and local governments angling to gain from those promised returns right keep in mind those states that moved in favor of cannabis did so specifically for a number of reasons often led by the money right tax money the so called green rush of investment in entrepreneurship arrive with marijuana legalization in two thousand sixteen as did a whole new categories of jobs and potential funding sources for schools road repairs and a whole host of other things then more than three quarters of cities and counties across the state did what what if I said they banded dispensaries and other cannabis companies because despite the fact the state said let's move forward each individual municipality gets the vote and they voted no now hundreds of people working California's cannabis industry are losing their jobs well California's decades old black market is still thriving several large cannabis companies including Kanta craft cinema county's largest home grown Canada's manufacture flow cannot a major campus brand from northern California emerald triangle laid off about twenty percent work force other California cannabis juggernauts announced layoffs in October what about wheat maps I think everybody all over the country knows what we advances their C. E. O. Chris Beals announced on Twitter last month that his company fire twenty five percent of Canada's retail advertiser employees is a San Francisco based tech platform that helps dispensaries manage deliveries let go twenty percent of their people everything was going really well then all of a sudden we weren't hitting targets right and everybody was retracting said Dennis Conner founder of Santa Rosa's can't craft we had to make the responsible decision to cut our costs after all we are business burdensome taxes complex regulation and not enough legal dispensaries to get products in front of consumers in California have created a tough economic atmosphere according to many cannabis business leaders in California now that will increase taxes for cannabis business starting Jan one let's think about that ladies and gentleman in the state of Colorado as we've discussed before eighty percent of the business is done legally and twenty percent is still done the gray market in California it's exactly the opposite there's a three X. business of illegal to legal part of the reason is as you continue to add on taxes the difference between legal and illegal gets greater and the quality of the illegal product often bought by in the legal market becomes quite good so why is the consumer needing to buy medicinal product when I walk into a dispensary and pay forty percent in tax thirty percent whatever it may be if I can get the exact same product on the black market in feel comfortable about its quality so there you go listen to this line of people are gonna be smacked let me repeat that gobsmacked G. O. B. S. M. A. C. K. E. D. said Elizabeth Ashford senior director of corporate communications with ease don't know what gobsmacked means but what do you think it means flips while I just cheated and looked it up yeah I mean he is astounded I'm again well I was going to go with the standard I didn't know but I was going to say it should be one of our stunners I eat a standard all right it's very hard to overstate the impact that on top of everything else eases Ashford said of the tax hike you had capital markets literally dry up make banking solutions of failed to materialize the illicit market is the vast majority the market here okay so there's a problem so here's my perspective there's always been a misperception from people outside the cannabis industry that it's a gold mine companies were able to raise a lot of money expand rapidly and delay having to deal with market realities well guess what market realities a setting in look at the category that when what.

Good afternoon what I it's been a whirlwind. Alwin Czerny thanks for being patient with me and coming up here to meet with me and Sorry I was late but Thanks for tracking me down. Love what you guys do and I love the podcast. All the work you do in addition to the great barbecue but You know we we both share something That is so intrinsically deepen our so on that as we both love San Diego and loving San Diego different forms and shapes and what you do and they can be involved with charities charities that can be involved with your business or you know making the best damn food you cannot or sharing that with charities like you do with the caddy hack that we do every year and all achievements that we do so you become a great friend And everybody loves great friends. That have great food so It's it's a good Combo and thanks for having me on absolutely absolutely. I think you know one of the things that I've shared this story on our podcast on behind the smoke. Also when I was on point of view With Chris Beal. We just recently had on digital hospitality. was you know I grew up loving sports and entertainment and I got connected with my best friends through sports sports I remember being at Bishop's in La Hoya and reading the sports pages every every morning I kept reading about the Han on family. And I kept reading about this guy. Ernie Hon and it was something that for somebody growing up here I was. I was always impressed that no matter what the article was no matter what the Angle Engle was. It was always you guys. Were trying to do something better. And that was something that I admired and I remember circling in the article. Hey that would be so cool. One day meet Ernie To meet his family and and fast forward to win the goals get announced that they're coming back to town Kelly Comfort we'd been doing a lot of stuff on local radio and became friends with Dominic. Monique who worked for Iheart they had come to meet with you an Ra Segal the then president of the goals and the pitch was you know they wanted to get radio deal for the goals. They didn't end up getting the radio deal but at the end of the meeting you guys asked if there was somebody that should be on their radar for sponsorship Somebody that maybe they you didn't traditionally think think of and Dominic recommended Kelly Comfort and And it was at that time where I couldn't believe that I was. This was an opportunity for our brand whose off the beaten path was able to do an activation at a stadium. With a sports franchise franchise like the goals and are and for me. It was it was game changing. You know we went down to meet with you and I felt like we were pitching you just as much as as you were pitching us and it was just a matter of getting Joey from Levy also Joey Smith who's absolutely incredible. The best Him as well as our sorry as well as you and just really figuring out those details knowing that we wanted to do something better and it was part of that revitalization of the Sports Arena which was Valley View Casino Center. And now it's Pechanga Chunga arena. Tell me a little bit about your your philosophy about relationships and kind of where. Where did that come from? I mean I think I got a lot of that for my grandpa Ernie home named after certainly most of my dad. It's just the way that I'm here that I've grown up in the family. There's a there's a right and the wrong way to do business and it starts with relationships Everybody is just as important as the next person. Then they get to Nichols through their name or if they got a hundred million dollars the way we've always looked at it as a person as the person and they come with unique relationship to other people and you know we're in the business of doing deals and putting together deals with people that are really good people that respect and like those relationships model leverages relationships to do better things in the community better things for their business and one and one is three kind of stuff as cliches. That is But that's what it is and when we met that day and we hit it right off and you know I had been I told you I went to Phil's across the street right when he came to town and talk to him and he's like well it. Just I don't know if I keep the product good enough. I'm like dude. It's seven hundred hundred feet from I mean I can. I can hide it underneath the you know I can. I can pull it underneath the fence and skateboard it to my front. And they'll be just as hot and so he didn't believe in it and I was pitching him before he was even Over at the stadium and it was Scott. WHO's no longer with you know? Scott Marshall Missile is one of the best food and beverage guys ever met just like Joey. Those two favorite guys in the business and so and then I wore that chip on my shoulder for a a little bit. I fuck. I can't believe like it's ridiculous like we've got a great arena. Were doing a lot of events and so that opportunity came in. We met you and you were super excited sided about it and I was super excited this I want to do business. People that are passionate about their product and what they do and they want to actively engage in a new relationship and build that relationship. And that's why it's always been easy with you because if you needed something you've asked then needed something I've asked and we respect each other so that it's never a problem or every year you sign up for Ri- Golf Tournament we feed. You know hundreds of people at the festival at at the Gulf festival that is is a different festival And so I respect. I like that and it helps the brand and helps us together and business grows because of it. So let's talk about festival economics. And where did this idea this. I mean because you've been working on wonder front for a long time now. Yeah I would say it's been eight years eight years and my partner Paul Thornton. I called him about eight years ago. And this and said since street seem the left after. I think we have an opportunity to do something. This is well way before bill and we looked at the fairgrounds and we looked at He looked to Camp Pendleton. We looked at fiesta island. We looked at North Island relooked. Coronado dumb are dome our fairgrounds. We looked at none of them quite made sense for us because we didn't think there's anything necessarily to special about them or it might be special like North Island but it was gonna be difficult with military or it might be special in fiesta island but between the noise and the fact that there's twenty different organizations including Fido Fiesta Island Island Dog Owners Association. Really that gotta get. Their dogs walked every day. And we get special you know. I like imagine having earmuffs on dogs walking through the festival estival. So I'm like that's not going to happen and it's like anything else. It's got to be not that it's going to be easy. But you gotTa have somebody that wants you and somebody that sees he's your vision. And when we started working about four years ago with the port of San Diego and Jim mini-van and Randa and her staff They got it they get it and their partners in this and they.

This is like next level stuff and you know you do such a fantastic job doing this in barbecue so so stoked to be a part of it. Well I mean for for me doing this podcast starting with behind the smoke doing one hundred episodes with Derek Marceau. Who owns a butcher shop and I own a barbecue restaurant? It's really allowed us to look at marketing in a different way than just focusing on marketing Kelly Kelly Comfort Barbecue Italy or valley farm. And it's allowed us to get into a position where we're always learning Learning things that I'd never knew existed assisted trying to figure out new platforms figured out podcast distribution and for us. We are here to talk about aged aged specifically but also your background so for the listeners. That don't know who annual tenor team at group is give us a little bit of the big behemoth breath yes. Sports entertainment yet is a global entertainment company. I'm definitely not you know the official AG spokesperson just. You know I mean and that it is. It is a company that has many tentacles. You know They own various facilities including a Pechanga arena San the Eggo Put on different festivals. Different tours so fantastic company to work for Just because of all that reach and and They do everything from Coachella two own sports teams including the kings up in l. a. and then and then various different buildings staple centers one of their signature properties. Everybody knows staple center And and allows us also to kind of get together the other two different different marketers from different properties or You know kind of coming together and collaborating so it makes it definitely worthwhile. Yeah I I mean I think for me personally. One of the coolest things that's happening with marketing and with business small business big business genocides businesses that everyone has to start understanding what is happening with marketing. What's happening with digital what are how does our company present online? How does are constantly present in person told totem and that's less to this very interesting place What I'd I'd love to hear more about kind of your background because you're you definitely didn't go to school to get into sports entertainment properties real? I didn't yeah my background I mean was TV news. So I set out of of starting college wanting to TV reporter ended up being TV reporter which is college. So was there a moment that I think in high school is really where I went to Highschool here Uni of them now as cathedral relocated. My High. School is I think a luxury apartment complex nestled. Right Yeah Cross my memo. You went there studio so in high school. We had kind of a video production team team. I I really liked that aspects of things. I wasn't actually fantastic academically But really kind of gravitated towards all that creative stuff and really sought. TV News as kind of like accessible. It wasn't like film which I felt was like Steven Spielberg leg. How do you crack that young to be? Somebody's kid the that kind of thing. TV was even you know even on that same realm for me like how do you get on a TV lot. That kind of thing TV News you seem like there was like a TV station like five or six of them in every down now and seemed like a way to kind of get into into that realm liked telling stories obviously And liked being on camera. That worked out. And were you ever awkward on camera. Because I think that's a big fear. Fear that he had a business I mean a lot of people I mean even even the people that we had on behind the Smith Tower. Lipkin Heather Myers Jim Trotter. These people the Jim Trotter was a writer for the Union he studied journalists but now he's on TV for an NFL network. Yeah you know so. He never saw himself during talks about how when he was first on camera was a weird experience. I think we're experience and thankfully I think I did it a lot younger. You know what I mean because that was kind of doing this this at sort of an early age and I think everybody goes through all the Awkward Seth. Some people hate to tell you probably never going to grow out of it. You know what I mean people people probably you know maybe you know. Maybe it's not their thing you know what I mean. Some people see that they kind of they work around it you know they they find ways to you know to to find a presence you know some people kind of have it a little bit more. Naturally you know so I I think it was thankfully something. I was a muscle I was able to exercise early on. And then I'm thinking by the time I kind of graduated College you certainly had done a fair amount to where you know. I felt comfortable now. Still you know you're thinking about like your first TV job. My First TV reporter job was in Palm Springs Spring so fun it was like the coolest thing in the world. I mean it was like my college. I went to college here really kind of went to college journalism. I went to culture journalism here at UCSD. Yeah communication and First Time being live I mean this was is it was a plane crash Up in the hills of you know something one hundred twenty degrees there and I'm thinking thinking I like I need to have no notes like was what my brain is telling beal teacher told Ya no no nobody Chris you need to have no nuts. You know you need. Did you do this flawlessly from you know so I have my notes I think at the foot of my you know at my feet you know and and it's cameraman Yo. Yeah there's camera yourself. Produce wasn't self producing. Yeah you know there is like you know notes at my feet. They're flying everywhere. My brain is like everywhere to like equal as the paper is my brain. How many people are watching the all this stuff? I mean it was came to horrendous. Yeah it was. It was so bad. I remember calling my boss. You know. I'm like dude was alive. Yeah and I'm saying okay. I you know that this is not my best representation. You know I I will do better this kind of thing. He knows. I mean this. This guy was expecting it. Yeah you know what I mean in this guy knows you bring a guy the first time going live. He's not going to be incredible. You know what I mean like so I was putting more pressure. Did you have any self doubt Mike from the beginning that you probably you pick the wrong path Thankfully I I I really I try not to let that voice voice get too loud and I really you know whatever. It is just outlook or whatever I just I tried to not let that voice get too big. You know now and And I think that I knew that it was something that that you know that I would pursue and probably be good at you know and I think I was you know And then ended up going on to work in Sacramento and back down here in San Diego moving here with my wife and and It was. It's a fun run TV mortgage Megyn wife we met In in Sacramento Sacramento at the news. Yeah Yeah yes yeah. She was a producer And just hit it off immediately And she your producer. Yes yeah yeah. That's funny. My wife my producer. She's still my producing my life since got married. Yeah probably before that. Yeah that's fantastic. So you moved. Why'd you move? What'd you guys? Move Down to San Diego. I you know my hometown you know. I think we We were both looking for. You're a city where we could Both be happy in and hang out together you know and and be together and and She actually had the job. Bob and I basically said to her. You know UGO MALFA figured out ended up figuring it out Fox five brought me in and All the management management. They're like cannot say enough good things about them. Yeah and You know worked there. You know they they really set me up you know For Success US you know and and and so grateful that they gave me the job so I could feel comfortable. You know moving to San Diego could have done it like would have been scary. We were you know Obviously not married at the time. Didn't have kids at the time so I could have moved down here with no job. Just wouldn't have been comfortable. You know what I mean. It's always it's it's always good to have cash. You both got hired at Fox five She was working at another. Oh you got it. So how many different stations in San Diego enjoy for just that one yeah But in in all how many different stations so palm springs Sacramento the sort of in the three Soda Palm Springs Sacramento Sacramento and Fox any differences. In how those stations were run Yes you know some want the you kind of this mentality of like the kind of do your own kind of thing you know that's Like not a new phenomenon. Now now I used I used to call like a new phenomenon. It's like you know since the beginning of your own. What do you mean like shoot? Yep Edit a report you you know all those types of things I think tweet pose Lago. Yeah blog to my forgetting now growing and so you know 'cause reporters who were reporters orders in like the golden era. We'll tell you now like I don't think you're Manera.

sort of increase in licensing didn't come to pass support for NPR comes from the group or family foundation supporting NPR's efforts to promote deeper thinking broader perspectives and trusted fact based information always with the goal of creating a more informed public it's six oh six this is All Things Considered from NPR news I'm ari Shapiro and I'm Elsa Chang Republicans are walking a fine line over how much to criticize president trump there's the impeachment inquiry the pullout of US troops from northern Syria and a White House announcement now retracted that next year's T. seven summit would be at a trump resort some moderate Republicans met with acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney this weekend at camp David that's one indication of how troubled some lawmakers are here's another Republican strategist Michael Steele who was an aide to former house speaker John Boehner says his phone has been blowing up lately I asked him what concerned Republicans the most the situation in Syria and the abandonment of the Kurds who had been such loyal allies in such a critical force in containing and what we thought at the time was defeating ISIS that was the thing that really really bothered Republicans the most does it feel like now calculations among Republicans are changing somewhat when it comes to whether they will call out president trump on something I think Congress Republicans have been calculating the limits of his tolerance for dissent since he wrote down that escalator three four years ago now is the the hour of maximum uncertainty means is the hour of maximum danger for people's political prospects and I think this more move right now is to to make like a mere cat stay underground if you possibly can and your cat is that the thing that was like a ferret yes exactly see but why do you think this is the maximum point of danger as you put it is it because just where we are in the election cycle is or something particular about this moment now I think that the Ukraine investigation and the fact that we are actually in an impeachment inquiry in the house even if the house Democrats have chosen never vote yet they're taking testimony the intelligence committee is conducting an inquiry I think that means that the administration faces a an existential threat in a way that they haven't in the past how would you counsel a moderate Republican right now the challenge here is that while independents are increasingly turning against the president the base of the Republican Party continues to remain very strong for him and so I think the way the Republicans in tough districts or tough states have to thread the needle was by saying yes the president did something wrong I don't think you're in very good position trying to pretend that he didn't but it does not rise to the level of requiring his removal from office when were less than a year from the American people the voters getting to make that decision also you think modern Republicans or maybe any Republican should just go ahead and embrace the idea that president trump did in fact suggested quid pro quo with the Ukrainian president I think that's the only way to deal with reality right now look I think house Democrats have made a series of errors in this investigation I think that it is a very poor decision to continue holding these hearings behind closed doors the idea that they are moving towards impeachment solely on the basis of the situation in Ukraine is utterly untrue this is obviously the result of a series of investigations a series of outrageous that they feel the president has committed but I don't think anyone is in a good position insisting that the president did nothing wrong when it came to asking the Ukrainians to investigate either this conspiracy theory that the DNC server wound up in the Ukraine following the twenty sixteen election or that they needed to reopen the investigation of hunter Biden's involvement in the energy company in Ukraine I want to play you something that president trump said today the Republicans have to get tougher and fight we have some that are great fighters but they have to get tougher play because the Democrats are trying to hurt the Republican Party for the election when you think of what the president said I think it's entirely in keeping in character with president trump he always wants to be on offense he never wants to concede air and I don't think that that's a very good strategy for any Republican candidate who does not have the the teflon coating that president trump has with with Republican voters in particular so do you think president trump's insistence that Republicans hang together and fight this impeachment inquiry do you think that that is a strategy that could hurt moderate Republicans who don't have teflon coating right now yeah I think you could definitely be a poor strategy because particularly if there are further revelations and it seems like another shoe drops every day or every other day in the situation that could be increasingly difficult to defend I don't think any house Republicans in a moderate district in a difficult to defend district or a senator in a state that could swing the other way wants to be Wylie coyote and realize that there's no cliff under them anymore Michael Steele is a Republican strategist thank you very much for joining us today good to be with you there's been a lot of breaking news today on the opioid front first a major court settlement in Ohio and now talk of a tentative national deal valued at

"I read a blog post by this guy named Chris Lous and he is attacked up, teach up chat tech. The teacher. Yeah, and his first block post that he wrote, I was like, oh my goodness. I love what this guy's talking about as far as how gained cow Cowie's using game. If occasion, he was basically telling us his journey and it was fantastic. His journey in his literature classes of how he was using game -cation. So I started basically emulating borrowing a bunch of things that he was using. And then one of just by happenstance, I was coaching basketball that year and my assistant coach, Toby. You should take a course by this guy. Dr Haskell in I was I, I really had my master's degree in. I was like, who is that in? Why should I take of? And it's like a is like, no, this business spend is right up your alley. And so the course is called a teaching learning digital worlds or virtual worlds. And I took the course just by the recommendation of my friend, I didn't need it or anything. I just was like, let's see what happens. And that was my odd moments because Dr Haskell basically had us as graduate students. Participating in class in these different virtual worlds, including mine craft. And so one of my first projects you want to call him that. Was building a world that then exploded, you know, as far as people wanting to know more about it, which was kind of this commerce world that built. So it would immerse my students in the Spanish language while they were role playing as difference careers within the world of Minecraft. And so I was just kind of borrowing a little combination of what Dr Haskell taught us, and then also what Chris Beal was doing, which was documenting what was happening because I didn't find anything online or on YouTube that anybody else was doing. Sounds like I'm gonna create YouTube videos and I'm gonna write down everything that I do and however it goes, it goes at it just happened to be that it's it became the thing that I was like, okay, this is something that I can do, and it'll it's something I could share with people how to go about doing this. And it really is making a humongous difference as far as for my classes, engagements, but also just the. The ability for my students to go to stay in the Spanish language, which was a big push that I wanted to make sure happened. He is selling himself short a little bit that he used. Mine also teach Spanish. It's crazy. Yeah, that's actually that was via moments with game affiliation is so Mike, you're talking about some hero worship, Glenn. I'm gonna take this opportunity here. Gamification was always something that I remember playing reader rabbit in school, and I thought I thought that that was that was like the pinnacle of one end and then seeing what you've done with Minecraft to teach teach the human body in Spanish. Okay. Bill, giant human body in Minecraft, and then build a a roller coaster, a working roller coaster that goes around that all all that. And then you videotaped it and everything that was. I mean that that was definitely..
