"You're listening to how to be a better human. I am your host Chris Duffy. I like to think that I am a pretty emotional person, right? I'm certainly not one of those guys that's always all stoic all stiff upper lip, right? The only acceptable place to display emotions is when I'm watching football. That is certainly not me. That is not me at all. But that does mean that sometimes I can get stuck in my feelings. Or I can overemphasize positive thinking, always looking for a silver lining when maybe there is not a silver lining there. I sometimes wonder if I would be the person on the deck of the Titanic, looking around and going, well, on the bright side, we are getting to experience history firsthand. And that's not ideal. I think that's probably not ideal. That's why I am so excited about today's guest. Psychologist Susan David. For years, she has been teaching people that the way that we navigate our internal worlds, our everyday thoughts, our emotions, our self stories, that the way that we navigate those, it determines our success in life. I loved her book emotional agility, get unstuck embrace change and thrive and work in life. And I am so excited for you to hear our conversation that we have on the show today. Here's Susan David. Hi, I'm Susan David. I'm a psychologist and I'm the author of the book emotional agility. I guess my first question, which obviously I think I have a little bit more of a sneak peek behind the curtain than other people. But what is emotional agility? So the short answer really is that emotional agility concerns the psychological skills that are necessary for us to be healthy human beings. Especially healthy human beings in a very fast paced changing and complex world. And the truth is that every day we have thoughts, thoughts might be, I'm not good enough or my boss is an idiot. We have emotions sadness and grief and so on. And we also have stories, some of our stories were written on our mental chalkboards when we were 5 years old about whether we were, whether we creative leaders not haters. And as it turns out, how we deal with this in a world that we have is crucially important to every aspect of our lives to how we love how we live, how we come to our relationships, what careers we put our hands up for and how we lead ourselves in the world. There's a longer definition which is the ability.

"Listening to how to be a better human. I'm your host Chris Duffy. On today's episode, our guest is one of my favorite people in the world and one of my favorite artists. The poet Sarah keg. At home on my desk, I have a couple little sheets of paper taped up to remind me of the kind of work that I want to be doing in my life. And one of those lists is a list of artists whose work inspires me. Sarah's name features a very prominently. I love the way that Sarah plays with language. I love her sense of humor. And I also always moved and inspired by her vulnerability in her openness in her work. That's something that I really try and emulate. And I aspire to. I think a lot of people when it comes to poetry, I think a lot of people get turned off from poems early in their lives because they read some poems that are super basic and boring and all that they focus on is rhyming. Or because they read some poem that is incomprehensibly complex and pretentious. And then they decide, okay, all right, I get it. Poems are not for me. Poetry's not for me. But I think that is a real loss. I really think that there is such a breath of poetry out there that there is something that will speak to you no matter who you are. And I think that an exceptional poem, a really exceptional poem. It cuts to your core. And it sticks with you for the rest of your life in a way that almost no other art can. I hate to think that there are some people out there missing completely out on poetry because they gave up after roses are red violets are blue. Which, by the way, if that's your problem, if you love the roses are red violets are blue palm. Great, more power to you. Nothing wrong with that. But for me, that's not the one that does it for me. And to get us started in this episode, here's a clip from one of Sarah Kay's talks where she's performing one of her favorite spoken word pieces. And this is one that I personally really love as well..

"You're listening to how to be a better human. I'm your host Chris Duffy. Growing up, I remember learning a pretty standard by the book explanation of American history. Which means that now, as an adult, I'm frequently surprised to find out that the stories I thought I knew I actually had all wrong. For example, I always thought that the story of Rosa Parks was of an older woman who decided that she'd had enough, and she refused to give up her seat at the front of a bus to a white man because she was tired after a long day of work. But as today's guest professor David ichord explains in his talk at TEDx Nashville, that is not how things actually happened. Here's a clip. I am the proud father of two beautiful children. When Elijah was in the fourth grade, he came to me, came home from school bubbling over with excitement about what he had learned that day about African American history. Now, I'm an African American and cultural studies, professor. And so as you can imagine, African American culture is kind of serious around my home. So I was very proud that my son was excited about what he had learned that day in school. So I said, well, what did you learn? He said, I learned about Rosa Parks. Okay, what did you learn about? Rosa Parks. He said I learned that Rosa Parks was this frail old black woman in the 1950s in Montgomery, Alabama, and she sat down on this bus and she had tired feet and when the bus driver told her to give up her seat to a white patron. She refused because she had tired feet and had been a long day and she was tired of oppression. And she didn't give up her seat, and she marched with Martin Luther King and she believed in nonviolence. And I guess he must have looked at my face and saw that I was a little less than impressed by his history lesson. And so he stopped. And he was like, dad, what's wrong? What did I get wrong? He said son, you didn't get anything wrong, but I think your teacher got a whole lot of things wrong. He said, what? I said, yes. Rosa Parks was.

"You're listening to how to be a better human. I'm your host Chris Duffy. The whole team here at how to be a better human would like to thank you for listening to the show so far this season. We'd love for you to tell us what you think by clicking on the survey in our show description, or by leaving us a review on Apple podcasts. Tell us, what do you like? What would you like to hear more about next season? We are very curious to hear from you. Okay, on today's episode, we're talking about parenting. And full disclaimer, I don't actually have kids, but I do have parents. And I want to have kids of my own someday. Regardless of where you're at in your own life regarding children, I think that we can all get something out of thinking through and talking about family dynamics. Whether your family is a chosen one or a biological one, whatever your family looks like. And our guest in this episode, ebony Roberts is someone who I find to be remarkably nuanced and open in thinking about these kinds of issues. And as you'll hear in this episode, she's experienced quite a lot in her own life. And she's come through it, determined to create new patterns and new family dynamics rather than just repeating the old ones. Ebony and I are going to be talking about co parenting and how she thinks about this kind of stuff. But first, here's a clip from her TEDx talk. Our breakup hit me really hard. But I decided, I wouldn't let my broken heart get in the way of what was best for Sekou. We struggled initially trying to navigate this new space as co parents. I asked myself, how do we raise this beautiful boy full of wonder and promise and so much power in spite of our failures as a couple? The answer for me was simple. I could either choose fear, fear of being alone, fear of the unknown or choose love. And I chose love. That means seeing the good in you as a father. It means seeing the good in you as a father and not your missteps as a partner. It means putting Sekou first every time, even if it means I don't get my way. I know my parents went back and forth trying to work things out for my brothers. Our brother and I sake, though I appreciate their effort. I wish they hadn't. I saw too much. I heard too much. I knew I didn't want that to be Sekou's story. I want to say cool to know what it was like to see two parents who got along to parents who worked together as a team. I wanted him to know what love looks like in its truest form. Love is patient, love is kind. Love does not anger easily keeps no wrongs..

"You're listening to how to be a better human. I'm your host Chris Duffy. On our last episode of the show, I spoke with my friend comedian Jo firestone. And at the end of that conversation, as I always do at the end of our interviews for this show, I asked Joe how she was personally trying to be a better human. Here's what she had to say. So I used to have a compost bin to the Brown ones provided by the city. The ones that are rat proof. So then they took them away. The city took them away. Cities bringing them back. And so today, I asked for one for my building. Big one. There's 13 gallon 21 gallon. I said I'm gonna do the 21 gallon. I don't know if my landlord's gonna let this happen. But I'm trying, 'cause I don't like throwing away food. That's great. I admire that. I've been trying to compost myself in I discovered that. I'm basically just putting things in this big black composer, but I don't think it's becoming compost. As soon as it just becomes a giant vat of horrible rotten food, but we'll see if it works. But that's good for you. I'm glad that's a good human thing. Sure, that's something. Yeah. How to help our planet has come up with a lot of our guests. But the challenge when it comes to helping our planet is that the issues are so multifaceted. In our interviews, I've heard many different approaches and ideas about how to get involved. So, on today's episode, we're going to listen back to a bunch of fascinating moments with guests that we hadn't been able to fit onto the podcast until now. And maybe, just maybe. We might end up with a solution that is more effective than my sad dysfunctional little compost bin. My fingers are.

"And i think seeing things in this Holistic way and also like you said being a little bit more generous or kind to yourself around the idea of what you have to accomplish to feel successful is it's exactly right. It's instead of attaching those things to our identity. We can to see them as as flexible options or approaches to help us live a better life and in doing that we can. You know come up with different ways to maybe get to the to the deeper purpose. Well i know we're we're coming a little bit closer to the end but we talked a lot about how you can get feedback from external sources right about external self-awareness. What are some of the techniques that we can use to kind of really drill down into internal self-awareness. How can we ask ourselves those same questions and get real answers In your book you talk about the seven pillars of inside that you think are what separates the self-aware from the nut. Self-aware can you tell us a little bit more about what those pillars are and how we can build them. We've mentioned many of them today. So just go through them quickly so our values our aspirations are fit in other words. What are the environments and people that help us be happy versus taking away. Our energy Are are patterns. So what are the specific ways are consistent ways. We behave over time our reactions. What are we thinking. Feeling doing in the moment on in behind that what are strengths and weaknesses and then last is our impact on other people. And even if you go through those specific questions what are my values. what are my aspirations. What environments give me energy versus taken away. That is where we start to get real self-awareness. Do you have set of clearly. Articulated values that you use as a barometer to live your daily life. then it's a little bit harder to fool ourselves. So i think that's that's the case there. We do have this as a free resource for anybody who wants to take it a subset of our bigger self-awareness assessment that you can basically fill it out in five minutes and you answer fourteen questions about those pillars. You send the survey to someone who knows you. Well they answer those questions for you and you get a report on your kind of high level self-awareness. It's i tell people don't make any major life decisions based on this but maybe not something we can put in the show notes For your listeners. If they wanna just kinda get that read but even asking those specific questions of ourselves can be incredibly powerful. I love that and last question What is one way in which you personally are trying to be a better human right now. I'm trying to give other people more grace in the challenging situation that none of us thought we would be in right now with the pinned dragging on so whereas before i used to be kind of a grudge machine and i you know glomming onto things and get pissed off and you know per separate on it. I'm really trying to work on letting go. Well tasha your thank you so much for being on the show. It's been an amazing conversation. And i i really am grateful for you being here. Thank you so much. It was a great conversation Really appreciate it. That is it for today's episode. I'm your host. Chris duffy and this has been how to be a better human. Thank you so much. Your guest tasha your. Her book is called insight. The surprising truth. About how other cis how we see ourselves and why the answers matter more than we think on the ted side. This show is.

"I'm chris duffy and you're listening to how to be a better human. You know whenever people ask me about hosting this podcast. One of the things that i told him that. I really do actually record this podcast in my bedroom while hiding underneath a little makeshift blanket fort. That's where i am right now for real and it is a surprisingly effective sound booth and the other thing that i tell them is that it is mind blowing to me how much great material we have to cut out of egypt so not not for me from our guests one thing. Is we finish every interview by asking our guests. What is something that has made them a better human. So maybe it's a movie or a book or song and we've done so many incredible recommendations from them and only a few of which have actually made it onto the podcast so today we wanted to try something a little bit different. This is an episode stitch together from many different interviews. What inspires the brilliant people who have been on our show. What did they turn to in this episode. You're gonna find out. So i up. We have franklin leonard. Franklin is a film and television producer and the founder of the blacklist which transformed the way that hollywood made movies by celebrating the best un produced screenplays each year. Here's how franklin responded when we started talking about whether any movie he'd ever seen had helped him to be a better human. I don't know if there's anything that i can articulate about what i learned about being human except for an appreciation for being alive. I remember watching moonlight at the toronto film festival. And remember thinking that everything in this moment right now is perfect because movie like this exists and a movie like this is as good as it is and i don't know what's going to happen i don't remember somebody asking me like. Do you think could win. Best picture and i remember saying if there's any justice it will but i don't necessarily believe there is but i knew in that moment that beauty existed and that i was reminded that that a certain kind of human connection existed and i knew that it was possible to recreate it and that oftentimes is what we all need to get up in the morning and keep going through what we go through on a day-to-day basis. I could not agree with what franklin just said more. Moonlight is such an incredible film. Even the script alone is just incredible. I started reading a copy. Because i was curious to see how formatted and i want to see like what it looks like and the next thing i knew i had read the entire script cover to cover just that beautiful and gripping okay but also in our interview with franklin he and i discovered that we were both very obsessed with a very different film. I think you bring up such a great point which is that you can have a fantastic script that makes you think of the world in a different way and think about what it means to be in a different way in any kind of film. I mean one of my favorite examples of this other than the ones that you brought up. Is that paddington. To is a takedown of the criminal justice system in the car cerrell state. That's a little stuffed bear. Who's really fighting for change. I will not lie when i watch panton into movie ins. Those of you who seen it will know. The moment that i'm talking about. I burst into tears and was inconsolable for a good five minutes and that's the thing big commercial movies paddington to marvel movies. Pixar animated films. Do not be stupid enough to believe that you know better about what something is until you've experienced that thing it's like drinking poison expecting the other person to die once you've washed it or once you've experienced it or you know enough to actually say concretely. Why this thing is in good by all means have an opinion but you yourself are preventing yourself from having joy.

"I'm chris duffy and this is how to be a better human today on the show. Let's talk about love specifically about how sometimes it seems like people keep finding themselves in love with the wrong people over and over and over again. Maybe you identify with that for yourself. Or maybe you immediately thought of a friend or family member who seems to fit that pattern before. She met the love of her life. Psychology researcher kelp heal. She self identified as a romantic self saboteur and her early experiences. They hit affected her attitude and behavior towards love. Here's how she described it in her. Ted talk my name is raquel. I am recovering romantic self somewhat. I assume that people in a relationship with me. We will eventually leave me. I also assume the my relationships will fail without much evidence. Consequently i am often thinking how best to protect myself and i count on the four horsemen of the puck lips to do the job with criticism defensiveness contempt and stonewalling. Just ask my husband but let me tell you. It doesn't work so a lot of people come to me and ask. How did things change for you. what happened. I have been conducting research into what works to maintain long-term relationships. But before you tell you let me just say we should be pursuing a relationship. That comes our way. I would like to tell you to pursue those relationships to have the potential to what they are good in. What standing in your way is your self sabotage tendencies. Change is really hard but not impossible. So if you are someone who needs to break the pattern of self sabotage. Please be kind on yourselves. It's natural to protect yourself but the way out of it is to have insight into who you are in a relationship your expectations of your mental honest and how best to collaborate with them. Because after all if you know who you are in a relationship your will also have a chance to get to know you and together that you can break pattern of sabotage. So what do you think does that sound like you or does that sound like someone that you know for me. I think that anyone who's interested in having a relationship should be thinking about these questions. That raquel is asking. Who are you. What are your expectations. What are you looking for. So many of us end up undermining our relationships in ways big or small without even knowing it and today on the show. We're going to hear from her. All about how to break that cycle of romantic self sabotage and how she.

diggity be hardly any dignity see a fair amount of dignity or D. an overwhelming surplus of dignity and I guess my face combined with the amounts of dignity they are really just took the internet by storm and even though that's one of the only questions that I did get right the meme is like officially called on the internet clueless white guy so that's me I'm the face of clueless white guy but you got it right I got it right we need to fix that on the internet he gets it wrong every now every day someone online is saying no wait I got I got that right but you did I did you know I was no dignity no doubt no dignity no doubt exactly how much money did you walk away with by the way well not that much money I walked away with about twelve hundred dollars so I mean a great day but not a millionaire day but it lead you on a quest it did to find it so intriguing find other people who are in need well it's it's an interesting thing because obviously I'm a comedian and I I've written for TV and so a lot of what I do is try and put things out there that people appreciate and yet ironically the thing that the most people have ever seen that I've been involved with is this photo of my face when I really had nothing to do with putting out there and so just got me thinking about kind of our in digital identities and the ways in which photos that we don't intend to be public can somehow become very public and so I talked to a ton of other people have had these experiences where photos that they put online then went viral and people now have these ideas of them but not as a full human beings I I went out and talked to a bunch of other people and it turns out that people had some very will help experiences of their photo going viral and being all over the world can you can you share one sure so one of them I really I really fun one is this young woman I was only Roth I'm she is the face of disaster girl so if you've ever seen this name it's like a little smiling girl in front of a fire in front of a fire yeah in the mean is often like something like they told me to go to bed so I burn the house down or something like that and she was only six when they took that photo and her dad snapped at and it it was in front of a controlled burn that the fire department was practicing on so it wasn't like an unsafe fire she didn't started anything like that but for her whole life now people have recognized her and I interviewed her about and she told me that she just recently found out that in Portugal there is a a wall mural with her face painted on it in a country she's never even been to and so I think that's kind of an example of the ways in which your face can become not your face anymore instead just something that the internet on my guess are Chris Duffy American co they were talking about pop up magazines theme tour the escape issue so it's easy your purchase I don't get too much away partition participation about escaping the internet yeah it's about having this this version of my face that I can't escape where people from high school I haven't talked to in ten years fifteen years well then all of a sudden one day so our text me being like man you made it you finally did it and I'm like I know what happened which is one of these meme accounts posted a photo of my face and it's going all over the internet so you this is not your first experience with pop up right no no tell me about a little bit about what it's like to be part of a life magazine yeah it's interesting I feel like I'm it's sometimes hard to explain to people when Meryn and I have talked about this where like I often tell describe it to people as it's almost like if this American life was live on stage but it was also with like big visuals behind them and a live band scoring everything and so it's it's an incredible experience because I'm a comedian so normally I performance just me and a microphone but now there's there's graphics there's animations and there's a sound track as well and my the last story I told was about my time as a fifth grade teacher I had a student who god bless you for still there thank you so much yes if anyone has served it is me obviously I'm joking but I I I had a student who had a column in the school newspaper or he was a food critic who reviewed cafeteria food and so any so I I went and I read some of his old columns and then interviewed him now he's eighteen now about how his time in in writing that had affected him and whether he thought the school had supported that form of creativity because sometimes we only recognize some forms of create create a success in academics and not others it's not that my this event is produced in collaboration with your sister magazine the California Sunday magazine just make sure I get everything right there at the October issue is is escape theme as well and you read article titled how to get rid of unwanted guns and you perform the story before for pop up can explain yeah so this particular story is about a small organization called the national center for unwanted firearms which is a big name for a very small organization it's essentially just two people trying to help people get rid of their guns so they're both people who had spent their career in law enforcement and new like a lot of gun owners do that it's actually very difficult to get rid of a gun if you don't want it anymore there's no there are buyback programs but they're few and far between people don't always know where they can take them they can sell them if they're fine with them just ending up on the market again they can give them to law enforcement that they will sometimes sell them as well so they wanted to just be a center to help people get rid of their guns so they set this thing up and there's a sort of interesting personal time which is that my dad was their first customer so the pieces largely a reported profile of them but then it sort of takes is very personal turn and it's about my family and growing up in a rural place where everyone own guns and then over time starting to feel very differently about organ collection can we go through some of the events that are happening yeah I can center so you got Joe Firestone yeah well as well as Jordan Carlos used in the family family here adult and podcasts yeah great to other folks read hearing from you're gonna hear from Kerry Blake injure reporter in Texas who has a really fascinating story about prisoners playing dungeons and dragons on death row you're gonna hear from a musician named left at London about her process of a voice training and how she escaped being boxed in by her voice as a measure musician and a trans person I'm trying to think of some of the other highlights Joe Firestone has a really great story about scented candles and Jordan pieces about travel I feel like that also kind of sums up to me what and things that I think is so special about Papa magazine but that's hard to explain is that there's a show where it's like it's me talking about means and Joe talking about scented candles but then we're also like and here's a really serious interesting piece about criminal justice reform so like our show yes all of it and get the you do four story all of it as as I thing before as a comedian I can't tell you the amount of times that I follow Susan rice on a program it's just happening to me we run into each other left and right again and again and again happening every day almost your host of podcast called.

"This is all of it tomorrow night at Lincoln center's David Geffen hall pop up magazine will present its first team tour the escape issue here's the gist they claimed live magazine is created for a stage screen a live audience writers comedians poets photographers and journalists all take a turn to perform stories about escapes big and small and they're coming on stage by the magic magic orchestra nothing will be live on line after the performance so you have to be there in person to see these escape artist here's to you give us a little more about this event will tease of it anyway this pop up senior story producer and co host Marinko then Colin Cogan thank you nice to see you as a comedian writer and you're the expert podcasters Christopher hi Chris hi thanks for having us so how does live magazine start this life magazine started in two thousand nine our founder Doug my great was a writer for a bunch of publications and he always wondered why he didn't really know his photographers for his stories he didn't know as many filmmakers we had this idea what if we got everybody together all different sorts of artists and we put together a life magazine so it's on stage it's a story there's a giant screen behind the presenter with original art animation photography and film and a live band that compose original music for each song what's behind the escape theme we were thinking a lot about doing an escape this is our first ever all ever themed issue and we're thinking a lot about different themes and the more we thought about it the more we felt like escape was a subject that could be really relevant to this moment and could also encompass a lot of different things so we have everything from stories about escaping your meme on the internet to stories about of the criminal justice system about immigration and internment so it really felt like something that could contain a lot of different subject matters and be really relevant to this moment when I think people are are looking to escape from something's staving memes that's to you Chris so I don't know many people know this story but you became a meme yes very unexpectedly in twenty fifteen I went on the game show who wants to be a millionaire I was a friend and trying to make a little extra cash as a struggling comedian and I went on and I lost almost immediately but one of the questions was been screen shot it and take an online and has gone viral and been shared hundreds of thousands of times by ever in from Jake tapper from CNN to musicians yeah even a a Facebook page called we believe in nihilism sell a really wide range of people have shared this and it's basically my face looking very surprised with a funny question what was the question that because your face to do that

"And you can keep that going. I like that yourself. Abrupt we use radio on WGN. I like that we didn't use the play music. It was father daughter dance tonight. And I usually take off my show. But because I am traveling. I'm traveling all week, and I'm in Dallas all next week. So landing. Saturday night. I just don't want to land. And then go do show. I don't think it would be very good. So next week next week. I won't be your side. So I said tonight, I'm going to just go ahead and. And work my shift anyway, but it'll be okay. So you know, dance was a DJ. The school. It's cute. It's it's wonderful. My daughter's getting older she's in seventh grade. So her big goal is dead. We have to dance a couple of songs, and then let's go have dinner. She was she's outgrowing. It was from six thirty to eight thirty a growing echoing the dance that spending time with that. It was like, you know, it's from six thirty to eight thirty. She didn't want to get there. Right at six thirty got third seven stayed till about eight thirty. And then we had reservations tonight. Oh, get an invalid username password on our text line. So what we decided to do. And she did this like when she was little little like when she was maybe in third grade second grade her girlfriend we decided. We're going to double date so to speak with one of the other, dads and. Starts at six thirty. I'm like, well, let would you guys? Would you ladies like to go to dinner will go before in about five o'clock, maybe four thirty and the two girls looked at each other? They've looked at us and said, what are we ninety? And bedtime. Five we'll go we'll go to dinner afterwards. Mike. Okay. All right. Okay. So we ought to Hugo's downtown. The pick. And it was lovely. And so yeah, we had a good time. We danced a little bit and talk to some dads. Did you floss? Yes. I did. And. Yeah, it was a good time. You know what I'm talking about? No. It's the dance the flush. Oh, no. Because you could put out a hip on them. Yeah. No floss. But we had a great time. And I got home with like eleven thirty and said, well, I'm going to just quickly take a one hour catnapped just to refresh myself. Okay. And I saw I saw this are former traffic report. Violeta podrumedic, was is now doing mornings on the mix. And she had posted that she had slept during the day for about a good hour. And she woke up and said, why did I do this? I am. I am not fully functioning. Oh because she only slept for an hour hour like a couple of hours. You can do be. Okay. But like if you're getting into a deep sleep for an hour. You can't really, you know, yourself up. So my I literally fell asleep and then my alarm went off. And I thought oh. Midnight. If I looked like no, it's it's quarter to one. That's usually when I when I get up and shower and get going out cold. I was out cold than I hit snooze fifty times. Because I really didn't realize what I was doing. And then it was one twenty five. So it was more of a splash some cold water. But it was a wonderful time. We had a good time. And you both worked. It was fun. It was always a good time is a blast. But you know, what's nice? You know, she said I said, well, there's one more year this, but then sell through high school to they do really at the two high school. She's considering. Yeah. Okay. So that stuff, and then did some college visits this week? Yeah. Because. Yeah. He kinda had it all wrapped up did. And then headed all wrapped up again. And I won't say which school you went to this week. But was not a fan. And neither was I. Okay. So we're gonna hit Iowa we're gonna hit ball state. There's a you know, he he applied for oh gosh nine university. We've heard back from seven or eight and he was accepted in every one of them. So I think the it's just the choice now of what he wants to do. I think he really wanted to stay in the city, but Loyola and Paul and all these other universities here. Really don't have good architectural program. Right. So yes. So that is our life. So here's what's on the show today. And I'm kind of excited about this. Because Gary Sinise is one of those guys, and I have a long list of people that I've always wanted on the show. You know, it's kind of like when I was trying to get Dennis Leary for years. Gary Sinise has been on my list for a very very long time. Well, we started getting around Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Sure. Because of all the work that he does. But he is a tireless advocate, and and work like just absolutely, you know, gives all of himself for our veterans. People think it started with him playing Lieutenant Dan in Forrest Gump, right? Because that's when he played a Vietnam vet, and I think he realized how many people that he touched in that role and Vietnam veterans would come to him all the time and say, thanks for bringing, you know, us back in the forefront. And it was sad to hear back. And why did we have to take out her frustrations? I guess with being in Vietnam and those who served right like, it's almost mind boggling to me that there were no big parades. There was no welcoming back. I mean, it's it's tragic nothing but demonstrations tragedy antiwar demonstration sure on every level. But you don't blame those who served that were sent there to to fight on behalf of our country. And but he he was he was helping our veterans and involved in all that actually long before that that just even further incur for him. And then nine eleven came and it went even further and then he. He created a foundation, and then it's just nonstop messaging, and and and helping raise money for for the veterans and he travels a ton visit groups forming, and and and serving in a lot of them. Sure. That's a lot of it. Why he's doing CSI New York and criminal minds the movies and stuff. He just always always made time. So we're going to talk to him. He's got a new book out called grateful American. It's really a book. It's not one of those celebrity knee books. It's really about how grateful he is in his life that he's that. He's fortunate enough to have time and resources to give back and and that entire journey civil talk to him. And then the folks from chief O'Neill's will join us, and yeah, great place. Chris Duffy is gonna join us as well. Which is you know, what I asked him to do what he's now. People asked me to beyond the air enjoying their show. And I'm like, well, you took this fabulous trip to Ireland, and you could tell the pride and joy that he had and taking that. And so we're gonna talk about Irish spirits and have a little sampling on the notes. Not always great to hear it people eat and drink on the air. But we'll try to explain to you you bring Rory eaten.

Love to hear what you consider. My elevate. We've done now our third together. This is I think it's our forth, isn't it is our four show. Yeah, they're all just fly. So fast now. So four shows and what so my element is just big around sporty thing. Right. And you're just running around filming. I well, they have what they call the Super Bowl experience. Okay. And so people that live in whatever city is hosting it or people come into the game. Obviously those two who perhaps maybe they're going to the game. But most likely they're not in the NFL just wants to promote. Yeah. This thing. I don't even know the cost to get in there. Maybe a dozen short does everything costs, but it's not super expensive. Maybe it's twenty bucks. Okay. Which would be a lot for what you get. But you go in there, and they've got everything set up around football. There was you know, passing games. There was obstacle courses. There were kicking games. There was you know, different advertisers, promoted their stuff. I you could take a nap the slag free swag free. Swag was available for the kids. You know, mascots are walking around the trophies there. You can take a picture with the Trump. Did you take selfies with a mascots? I didn't take too many with the mascot guy. But I did high five a lot of mascots. I like to give them, you know. Okay. Whatever mascots for these teams. It's weird ram Rams. And the patriot guys. It's also this bizarre guy tried to get him to stop and talk to me, and he was being shoot away his hands like not enough. He's got somewhere to be right on like, okay. Can't tell his handler was tough on guide. I mean, these mascots are very much sought after individuals. Okay. So with Adam LeVine walking around. That's what I wanna know. Adam LeVine said there was a lot of a lot of who's who's at least around the NFL just old school guys. Just coming out of the woodwork. Oh, there's Dan Marino. Oh, there's Emmett Smith. Oh, there's Dion Sanders. You know, it's just one after another, and they're all promoting something. They're all paid to be there. And then they go through a radio rollers.

He did phenomenal job Brian Brian Urlacher, stop and by Filmon prince amukamara Izzo. It's you know, you learn very quickly, Jerry if I may. Yeah. You learn very quickly where you are at the totem pole in the media world right now. It's great to be there. That's an accomplishment in itself. And then you then you have your banner how big is your banner, and then you look to your left. And then the, you know, the Fox Sports radio was close heading so much real estate. They had LED signs in their different personalities are being you know, just cycled through. So. Money, and, you know, being a sponsor and all kinds of stuff to you know, and people sitting why do they have to have such a big thing? Well, you know corporations that got dough they promote themselves. Mcdonald's is out there doing commercials. Same thing with Coca-Cola same thing with the brand like we could have Carmen, and none banner. They'll just be displayed. Yeah. Well one day, right? Saving her money. Right. But I missed out on the cold. I you really missed out, man. See I I see. Three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred did I feel like I missed out. It's never negative twenty one that doesn't happen. So I feel like I feel like it was an experience in itself. Like, would you? I'm just curious if people could have chosen to be gone or be here and experience it and know that you got through it. And maybe you just you know, an extra right? Little bit of toughness that you could put on your resume that separated the men from the boys. I mean, how'd you handle it I stayed in? You know, like, the tribunal let me work from home. So that was nice to be at home and hunker down like a lot of people. So but some people had to be out there. I mean, a lot of radio people of my radio friends had to be out at their gigs. You know, but we didn't have the mail the mail. Even like, we're not coming out. See see I wanna say on some level, but that's just wrong. Okay. Postal carriers. Isn't it don't?
