A highlight from Prioritizing American Families: A Disconnect with Career Politicians with Stefan Mychajliw

"American families are struggling to put gas in their car to pay six dollars a gallon. They're struggling to buy milk and eggs and groceries. People are really hurting in Joe Biden's America. The difference was crystal clear on that debate stage. The vague ramasami talked about his positive America First vision of how he's going to improve the American economy, put money in the pockets of people. Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests and my fellow citizens, America's comeback starts right now. We are live with Vivek Ramaswamy, deputy communications director and friend of the financial guys, Stefan Mihailu. Stefan, how are you? That's right. I'm a financial guys client and deputy comms director for Vivek Ramaswamy. I say that's a great one -two punch. That is. It's a great thing. So tell us a little bit about the overall feeling from Team Vivek or the Vivek camp, I should say, about the debate this past week. Well, I actually drove over with Vivek Ramaswamy here to the Reagan Library and there was a mission to do two things. One, let Vivek be Vivek, be presidential, be above the fray. We knew the attacks were coming. We knew the career politicians on that stage were going to attack Vivek Ramaswamy. And why? Because if you're, you know, getting kicked in the rear, that means you're out in front. So we're wholeheartedly expecting attacks from career politicians is exactly what happened. And so I'd be very concerned if a lot of the career politicians on the stage did not attack Vivek Ramaswamy. They did, and we are more than pleased with his sharing of the American people, what his America First vision is to build on the success of Donald Trump, to build on what Donald Trump laid down that foundation with Vivek Ramaswamy as a candidate for president now in 2024. So you mentioned being the hunted, and I talked to you at a different interview about this, but in debate number one, Stefan, people were trying to just learn who Vivek was at that point, right? He had a couple of zingers. He had a pretty good performance in debate one, but as debate one ended, he was getting attacked and mauled by everybody on the debate stage that night. And then debate two, they started right after him right from the get go. And I do agree with you. I think that was a very interesting thing to see. Hey, you know, and I'll tell you, Ron DeSantis didn't take that right. That beating that, or that, that try to take a beating like that. Nikki Haley didn't, Tim Scott didn't, they were going after one, well, two people, Donald Trump and Vivek Ramaswamy on that debate stage. I was really shocked at the fact that now Chris Christie has a potential running mate in his campaign of vengeance and anger and grievance against Donald Trump. And it's Ron DeSantis. Ron DeSantis attacked not only Vivek Ramaswamy, but Ron DeSantis attacked Donald Trump and Vivek Ramaswamy appeared presidential. He's staying above the fray and he's letting the American people know he's not running against Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis or any politician on that stage. Vivek Ramaswamy is running for the American people. So while we were in the green room, basically watching the debate unfold, we were very thrilled that all the queer politicians went after Vivek Ramaswamy and look, it's no different than what the queer politicians did in 2016 against Donald Trump. History repeated itself. The fact that they were going after Donald Trump in 2016 and they're doing the same thing with Vivek Ramaswamy. So let's look at a couple of those attacks that he received, Stefan. Number one was the TikTok, the TikTok attack with him doing a video. Was it Jake Paul or one of the Paul brothers? Many of the candidates on the debate stage had an issue with him doing any type of TikTok due to the China influence with TikTok. Your thoughts on that or Vivek's thoughts on that? Well, look, Vivek Ramaswamy did business in China. He saw how basically dirty and crooked the process was. So what did he do? As he said on the debate stage, he got the hell out. Now compare that with Apple and Nike and LeBron James who stayed in China, who's profiting from China. So Vivek Ramaswamy says all the time he is going to declare independence from America's greatest enemy and that is communist China. And who better to take out an enemy than someone who knows the enemy. And so as far as TikTok is concerned as well, look, Republicans, shockingly, are in the business of basically not playing within the rules and parameters of a campaign and letting Democrats run all over us for the past few decades. The Democrats are on TikTok. That's how you reach young voters. And that's exactly what Vivek Ramaswamy is going to do. Play by the rules and reach young voters. So I want to ask that question because Jake Paul actually tweeted about Vivek this week about this exact issue and I agreed with what Jake Paul said. The majority of young people between the ages of let's call it 12 and 30, their primary platform is TikTok, right? I mean, that's where they are. And was this totally calculated by Vivek Ramaswamy to get into that voting base because everybody's on Twitter, everybody's on Instagram, but TikTok and everyone can have their feelings on TikTok, Stefan. I don't personally love it either, but was this a calculated move? Vivek has feelings on TikTok. He is crystal clear about empowering parents to make sure that kids 16 and under are not on any social media platform, because as he says all the time, we don't like kids engage in highly addictive drugs like alcohol or tobacco at a very young age. And so Vivek Ramaswamy, his president, says he'll do the same with social media, empower parents and make sure they know that their kids are not on any of these platforms when it comes to running for president of the United States, you have to talk to voters in every means necessary. The Democrats are taking advantage of this medium and so too is Vivek Ramaswamy. We're here to win an election and talk to young voters. That's the way he's doing it. Before we get into the specific issues of the debate last night, I do want to talk about two quick things. Number one, what was Team Vivek's thought about the way that that was moderated, the way that the debate went? It looked very sloppy from afar. I was not in the room. I was not there like you were, but it looked very sloppy. It looked very messy with people talking over each other, people going over on their time, the moderators not asking pointed questions, getting lost in the shuffle. What were the thoughts from Team Vivek? Well, look, as a former news anchor, I know how hard it is to basically try and round up feral cats and get them to play by the rules. For the most part, Vivek Ramaswamy did. The most important rule that he honored was Reagan's 11th commandment, speak no ill will of a fellow Republican. That was the most important rule when it comes to either the moderators or the debate platform or being here in Reagan's presidential library. Don't speak ill will of a fellow Republican. Vivek honored that commandment. He talked about his positive America First vision, how he's basically going to increase and strengthen GDP growth, strengthen and protect the border using the US military to bomb cartels, keep us out of World War III, all the other career politicians on that stage just in the same way they treated Donald Trump in 2016. They wanted to attack and attack and attack not only a fellow Republican, but a business owner and political outsider. It happened eight years ago in 2016. It happened again in the second GOP debate here at the Reagan Library.

A highlight from S13 E16: Oliver: Writer, Producer, and Novelist Spotlight

"Hello, welcome to The Loney Show. I'm your host, John Mayolone. In this episode, don't have regulars, because raisins, as always, unfortunately. As for our guest, he's from Portland, Oregon, currently living in Los Angeles, California, and he is a film producer. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Oliver Tutill Jr. Well, thank you, Peter. It's actually Ted Hill Jr. But thanks for having me on your show. I'm excited to be here. Anytime. So, how's life? It's good. It's really exciting. I love the film business. I've been in the business for quite a while. And it's very exciting meeting different people, talking to different producers, actors, filmmakers, editors, composers, business financing. It's all very exciting. You meet a lot of very interesting people that are very involved in their work and are very creative. Ah, very good. And have you been up to much recently? Yeah, we've been pretty busy. My company's name is Cinema Development and Writing Services. And my business partner is Tara Walker. And what we do is, when we started out, we've had our business about a year now. And anybody that's curious, they can just go to cinema wds .com. That's our website. And what we do is, we work with novelists, and we adapt their novels into screenplays. And then once we've adapted them into screenplays, we've been asked by our clients to, well, can you place this with Hollywood companies? And we said, well, yeah, we probably can, you know, we weren't doing that. We're primarily focused on writing, but we started packaging, which means that we started putting together like a deck of electronic brochure that shows the actors we thought might be good for the role, and what the director is. And then we present it to different production companies, different producers and finance companies in Los Angeles, and sometimes in New York as well. Okay, very nice. And what inspired you to start all that? Well, I think I started out in the business, and so did Tara, we were both actors. And we enjoyed that. But it's, it's very, very tough. Getting regular work as an actor, you go through good times, and then there's these long stretches where you don't have much work. And so we said, Well, how can we get more involved in business? And so we both decided, well, why don't we become producers? So Tara started her own production company years ago called Alpenfest films. And then I started, I started out making a production company called Autumn Tree Productions, where I, at that time, this was in the late 1980s, I pretty much focused on making educational films, and actually was pretty much on emotional child abuse. And I did that for 10 years, I had a lot of success. A lot of my films, educational films are used in universities and colleges and many institutions. And after doing that for 10 years, I wanted to segue over into doing commercial motion pictures and, and documentaries. So I started a company called Bluewood films. And under that name under that company, I produced quite a few films and documentaries and pleased to say that some of them are on streaming platforms now where people can can see them. I just have my newest release was just last month. It's called Crazy Horse of Life, featuring Russell Means, the late Nakoda actor who did very well. Right, then. Very good. And have you ever considered like, releasing any of your work on an international level? Yes, I mean, Crazy Horse of Life is available internationally. They can definitely time to be TV so anybody can go to to be TV and anywheres in the world basically and watch it for free. It's ad supported. And then we've got another film called the right to bear arms, which is a dramatic crime feature starring john savage. And that's available on Amazon Prime and Amazon freebie and also on to be TV. And we've got another film that's distributed internationally. It's also on to be TV. It's called the Loch Ness Monster of Seattle and it features Graham Green, the Academy Award nominated actor from Dances with Wolves. It's been doing very well. My distributor is very pleased. He just sent me a letter the other day and he said how happy is that how well it's doing. So those those three films are available now. We've got new ones that are going to be coming out later this year. We're excited about. Wow, fantastic. So where would you see yourself 20 years from now? Well, that's a good question. And 20 years is a long time. But I would say in 20 years, I'd probably see myself and Tara, my business partner, our own company now, but probably producing eight to 12 motion pictures a year. Also, I'm a composer too. So I probably, I haven't been doing my composing recently, but I've, I've scored a lot of motion pictures and documentaries. And it's a matter of fact, Crazy Horse of Life. The score I did that score and I did actually I wrote the score years ago, but it's used in this big feature now and I scored the movie right to bear arms as well. So but 20 years, I want to still be producing movies and helping actors and helping create jobs for people that work in the industry. You badly because they can't get work. Yes, of course. So I want to provide jobs for people. And also, I'm a novelist as well. And I hope to have a few more novels released. I just had my first novel released by awesome Achilles publishers, which is their home offices in London. So it's definitely an international release. And it's called when the sunlight goes down, goes dark, excuse me, when the sunlight goes dark. And it's about a young, young boxer living in Los Angeles, who has to deal with unscrupulous promoters. And one of the one of the supporting characters in the book is a man from England who who wins one of the heavyweight titles. It's also a book that it also covers worker exploitation, family dysfunction, spousal Okay, fantastic. Yeah, let me just mention, Peter, that people can look at it to go to the website for the book. It's when the sunlight goes dark .com. That's the website for the book. And it's also available on amazon .com and Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, any bookstore, you go into any reputable bookstore, and they can order it for you. All right, then very good. So in terms of your written work, besides what, besides the novels you've just written, are there any more novels you're yet to write or have released? I do have one novel. It's called primordial division. I'm searching for the right agent to rep it. It's kind of a crime horror novel. It's also set in Los Angeles in the 1970s and 1980s. And it's about a woman who has the ability to see the future. She's kind of one of these mind readers and the kid, the male protagonist is able to, he's got the power of telepathy. Very good. And it's set in the context of the entertainment industry. Oh, nice, nice. What could you give a 40 minute presentation on without any preparation? I'm sorry, say that again, Peter, a 14. What could you give a 40 minute presentation on without any preparation? Oh, a 40 minute presentation? I could give it on, definitely, I could probably give it on, I made educational films for 10 years. So I could do on an education, I could do one on the film business. They cover all the aspects of the film business from development to pre production to production to post production, exhibition and distribution. I could do that for you. I've been in the music business since I was a kid. So probably give you a one on that as well. So, okay, very good. What which recent news story have you found most interesting? That's a really great question. The recent most recent news story that I found the most interesting probably would be what's going on with our climate and what's happening to the earth in regards to the climate crisis that's happening in the world today. That's that's one of them, I guess I know it's a big topic, but it definitely stands out. I'm also fascinated by what's going on in American politics today, who's running for president and what's going on in Congress in the Senate. And I'm also very concerned with the state of our country, you know, and how divided people are and how unhappy so many people are. Yeah, absolutely. I was gonna also say to my friends who are very struggling because they have kids, and it's hard for them to get daycare for the kids. So I have one friend, she had to give up work because she, she couldn't afford to hire a babysitter or a nanny or daycare. So yeah, she had to give up her job. Oh, no, that's just sad. Very sad, very sad, the income inequality in this, in the United States. I'm not an expert in your country, but in the United States, it's very sad to see so many people that are divided by class. Wow, I thought the UK was bad. I didn't know that the US has got bigger problems given its size. Yeah, there's a lot of problems. Definitely. We've seen the erosion of the middle class here. You know, it's been kind of disappearing for years. And the income inequality that exists in this country, it's pretty bad. And as well as you know, there was a, I was watching, I was watching News Nation the other night and the big story presented by Chris Cuomo, who's an interesting newscaster, whose brother to his brother to the former governor. And he his top story was these kids that these babies, basically, the toddlers and daycare that died from fentanyl overdoses. And he's all over that. And I'm thinking, yeah, that's, that's tragic. But a lot of people don't want to address what's happening kids into this country, they have many kids suffer from abuse, and how they it's very difficult for them to thrive and survive become and constructive citizens. That that puts something into the country that helps it grow more. Yeah, absolutely. You know, I can share one thing with you, I used to be a teacher. And I taught drama at a film school and a college, as well as film production. And I had a class, this is in Seattle, Washington. And I had a class where I had a quite quite a number of kids that were African American. And I'll never forget this, Peter, because like, they would come to class, sometimes the girls would be crying and go, what's wrong? She go, Well, Joey got killed last night. He said, What are you talking about? She goes, Yeah, Joey, you know, he got on the top of he got on the roof of Dan's car and Dan shot him to death. I said, Oh, you don't read about that in the paper. And then then another day, a girl came into class, she was weeping. I said, What's the matter? And she's when my sister was killed last night. I said, Well, what happened? She said somebody shot to her living room window, and she was killed. You don't read about it in newspaper. Just people don't know about that. Exactly. Yes, indeed. It's the media these days, they only want to show what they really want to show. They don't show the important stuff that goes on like poverty, financial crisis or things that impact a lot of people in this world. Absolutely correct. Yes, you're right, Peter. They don't know it's funny, funny because Chris, it's not funny, but I found it interesting. Chris Como mentioned one night on his show on news nation, he, he mentioned that people don't want to talk about class warfare in this country, you know, what's going on between the classes between the wealthy and the poor, or the struggling lower middle class, you get an idea of it. And now with all the strikes that are going on, you get the writers Guild of America on strike. You've got the screen actors Guild that's going on strike. Now you've got the United Auto Workers going on strike, and it's getting bigger, that strikes growing. And if that strike goes all out, it's going to, it's going to play havoc on the economy here. Yeah, absolutely. What do you disagree with most frequently? What do I disagree with most frequently? Probably people that say everything's going to be great. You know, you just have to hang in there. And also, I find myself disagreeing a lot with financial advisors who say, just, you know, keep it where it is, you know, don't sell, just stay steady, keep your bonds, 40 % bonds or 60 % bonds, 40 % stock or 40 % bonds, 60 % stock. I disagree a lot with financial advisors. Not that I'm an expert in finance, but I'm fascinated by it. I read about it. Absolutely. How much time do you spend on the internet? How much time do I spend on the internet? A fair amount, because I do a lot of research on the internet. And while I'm something to do research on something particular, then then you find, wait a minute, I've got to have to research this more. Then you find yourself going to another page, finding more things to read about. And then you realize you're going to be searching even more on the internet. So and to be honest with you, I spend so much time on the internet as it is on zoom calls. I'm tired of looking at the internet. I prefer reading books. So I read a lot of books. But I've got to use the internet a lot to do research. You know, especially I work with a lot of people that I've got to find out what their background is, you know, in the film business, and the financial business. So I do spend an enormous amount of time on the internet. I imagine you, you do yourself, I'm sure. Oh, yeah, absolutely. Hours upon hours. Yeah, it's a it's a necessity. It's a necessity today without a without a cell phone or computer. It'd be very difficult to survive. I do know some folks in their 70s and 80s. They don't use computers, they don't use cell phones. I do know one young guy who doesn't use a cell phone, but that's very unusual. But it's very hard to survive. I couldn't stay in business if I couldn't use a computer and cell phone. Oh, yes. Sure. It's the same for you. Yeah, of course. The internet is such a necessity. It's part of our lives, in a way. Absolutely. Yes. It is. It's built in. And you read about these kids, you know, they get addicted to their cell phones and computers. And there's so many psychologists that predict they're gonna have trouble with their personal relationships in looking at a screen. They don't spend time in person a lot. I don't know how that'll play out, but it makes sense in a lot of ways. What a world filled with clones of you, what would a world populated by clones of you be like, a world populated by I'm sorry, what what would a world populated by clones of you be like? You mean point of view? And a world populated by clones of you? What would it be like? Oh, clones of me? Yes. Okay, what would I think it would probably be a pretty peaceful world. To be honest, I don't think there'd be any wars, I think war would end. I think children would, we'd set up some type of educational system and change some values in the government in the country so that kids don't get abused, that parents are afforded the education and the training, starting in high school. Probably actually, I take that back, starting in grammar school. How to parent, how to treat other human beings, learning about themselves, becoming self intelligent, learning emotional intelligence, understanding their emotions. And growing up to be citizens that are productive and have empathy for other people. And if this happened, we could, I believe we could end this may sound naive, but I do think we could end poverty in this country. But there's no will to do that. There's no will to help kids because children can't vote. And they're not members of political action committee. So I would, I would make sure that their political action committee is available for children. I would allow children at a certain age if they can show that they have some knowledge about the political system, to have a say in voting, to see who represents them. And I believe with education, and with treating people well, with respect and compassion, having people trained for the type of work that they want to do, that poverty could could be eliminated. And so there are a lot of clones to me, there would be no more wars. And there would be a lot less suffering in the world. Yeah, that sounds that sounds like a very good reason. Thank you. Welcome. What's Education is the key. Education is the key and law. The merging of law and education. And again, unfortunately, the people in power, the bureaucrats and politicians don't have the will or the desire to bring about the needed changes. Yeah, it's so sad. What is your favorite quote? Yes. And probably, I guess it's a quote that is on my mind a lot now, because it's a quote I used to open my novel when the sunlight goes dark about the boxing family in Los Angeles, and the quote is, Oh, pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth, that I am so meek and gentle with these butchers. And it originally that quote is taken from William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar when Mark Anthony is standing over the dead body of Julius Caesar and Caesar has been assassinated. by members of the Senate. And he's bemoaning the fact that he's so meek and gentle with these butchers because he's kind of going along with them at the time. And it's just a quote that just stands out to me because I've used it in my book because I my books about worker exploitation in one way because a lot of these boxers are exploited. And a lot of them end up in not very good shape. Because people aren't looking out for him. So I guess for today, that's my favorite quote. I mean, I have others too. But I guess for today, that's the one that would be my favorite. All right. Very good. And I could you could use that metaphorically, too. I mean, the sense that, you know, Oh, pardon me, you know, why aren't the people that are running the government trying to help the people? Yes, that's a very good question. I'm sure you've run into very similar situations in England. Oh, yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. All the time. What's improved your wife quality so much? You wish you did it sooner? I'm sorry, Peter, you have to say that one more time. All right. What improved your life quality so much? You wish you did it sooner? well, Oh, I would I would say I spent a lot of time in therapy. I came from a very dysfunctional family. I suffered a lot of abuse, I was put into a private boarding school where kids got regularly beaten very badly. One of the lucky ones, really, I never suffered any permanent physical injury. But I think if I hadn't gone into therapy, and I was in therapy for decades, I'd say that probably the key to my being a functioning productive adult today, that in a book I read, called compassion and self hate, written by Theodore Isaac Rubin, that book changed my life. I never thought a book could change my life, but that one did. Yeah, of course. That and of course, if you're going to be successful, you have to you have to work hard, you have to know where to put your effort, you have to work hard and you have to think smart. I mean, that old saying about if you work hard, everything will fall into place is not necessarily true. I've known, I've had guy friends that have worked hard all their lives, and they've got nothing. Yeah, absolutely. So you got to work smart, as well as hard. Yes. But the more success you realize, it just adds to your happiness and your fulfillment. Yeah, of course. But people need the basic necessities have to be taken care of. You got to have clothes, you got to have proper shelter, you got to have decent physical health. I don't think I've ever met anyone that's happy if they haven't had good physical health. Yeah, of course. How did you spend your last birthday? Well, my last birthday, I had dinner with my business partner and my best friend, Tara Walker. We went to a really nice restaurant down on the beach, had a great dinner. And then went home and watched a really great movie. And it was a great day. And you know, I talked to a lot of friends and family too. I got a lot of calls. Okay. That's cool. It was fun. Oh, yes. It was quite a time. Yeah. You like birthdays? Yeah, I like birthdays. It's pretty cool, I guess. It's funny. I was just reading about Jimmy Carter, you know, the former President of the United States who is a president. And he's going to be turning 99 here in a couple days. And someone called him up, one of his family members said, I wanted to wish you a happy birthday. And he said, that's, that's not real good. I'm not really excited about this birthday. I didn't know you even make this far in his life. Yeah, he's going to be 99 years old. And you know, he's been in hospice for seven months. Everyone thought he was going to pass in about two or three weeks and he's still going. Madness. Amazing man. Absolutely. We could use a young Jimmy Carter today. That's for sure. Uh huh. Yeah. That'll be something. It would be. Yeah. Yeah. What's the best way to start the morning? The best way to start the morning is to eat a good breakfast. I know so many people that don't eat breakfast. They have health problems, they're overweight. And I don't mean starting breakfast, you know, eating junk food. You gotta eat something healthy for you. Eat something healthy. Write down the things you need to do today if you have to make a list. Yeah, it helps me a lot before I go to bed to write it to do this. So when I wake up in the morning, I know exactly what I got to do. And I got to feel the body first. You got to take care of the body. I have a friend of mine who's, he had a stroke and he's in the hospital now. He can't barely move. And, you know, he, he didn't have the right diet and he's still a fairly young man. It's very tragic. So feel the body and feed it well. Yeah, absolutely. I'm sure you know, because I could tell you put a lot of hours on your show. Oh yeah. It's, it's quite a process, but it's definitely worth it. Yeah, it's enjoyable. Yeah, sure is. If you could travel back in time, what would decade you want to live in? There's so many decades I would love to live in. There's so many centuries I'd love to live in. It's really hard to pick one, but if I had to pick one, I'd probably say the early 1960s. Sixties? That's pretty cool. Yeah, that's when Muhammad Ali came on the scene and that's when the Beatles came on the scene. To me, that's, I think we'll never see the likes of the Beatles or Muhammad Ali again. Yeah. So one of a kind, they always say. Yeah, but I, believe me, Peter, I'd love to live, I could go back to ancient Rome and be fascinated. Of course, your life expectancy wasn't very long. Oh yeah. Cause Sanitary wasn't up there and the advancement technologies got in the way. Yeah. Everything's like, ugh. I would love to live the life of a Plains Indian in 1840. I think that would be fascinating. It's freedom that people can barely conceive of today. And what a great, got the kids, Indian children back in those days, man, talk about having a great childhood. Yeah, absolutely. And that is all we have for this episode. It was great having you on Oliver talking about your works. You're welcome. And until next time, stay tuned for more.

A highlight from IP#502 Adam Blai The History of Exorcism, Part 2 on Inside the Pages with Kris McGregor Discerning Hearts podcasts

"Discerninghearts .com presents inside the pages insights from today's most compelling authors I'm your host Chris McGregor and I am delighted to be joined by Adam Bly who is a church to create expert on religious demonology and exorcism for the Pittsburgh Diocese he's helped train exorcists for over 15 years and has attended hundreds of solemn exorcisms his journey started in brainwave research and psychology and is now focused on the spiritual realities of miracles angels demons and possessions he's also the author of several books including the exorcism files with Adam Bly we go inside the pages of the history of exorcism published by Sophia Institute press we now continue with part two of our conversation a lot of times we look at those things that the action of the enemy that is what 90 % is temptation the our father lead us not into temptation but also as we just said the oppression and obsession those are things that can be dealt with especially in the sacramental life that we have within the mass within confession isn't it been said Adam that one good confession could be worth of a hundred exorcisms these are all just kind of turns a phrase but essentially yes for the average person the average Catholic who has access to the sacraments deliverance comes primarily through the sacramental graces and that means baptism confirmation confession and the mass those are the the mechanisms that sanctifying grace comes into your life for the average person and then of course matrimony for some people people underestimate the importance and power of the sacramental graces and they want the drama of the exciting prayer thinking you know you'll do this kind of magical incantation and make these problems go away versus the person doing the the work of conversion in themselves of making it to mass of having a good confession of doing the work of building a daily prayer life all of those things are actually what lead to deliverance primarily it's not just the exciting prayers if a person is unwilling to make any changes in their life is an unwilling to walk away from sin is essentially unwilling to have conversion in their life usually the prayers don't work because Jesus is looking for conversion and change so if somebody has done something to get into trouble spiritually they can't just come to the church and say well wave the magic wand and make the suffering go away I don't like it but I'm not gonna change my life because Jesus knows our hearts and so I've seen this over the years that even in the case is a full -blown possession he wants to see spiritual growth in the person he wants to see a movement towards him and trust and love and a turning away from sin in addition to coming to the church for prayers and so the sacramental grace is for the person that isn't possessed actually that is the engine that drives deliverance it's so important that in your book you have a section called Jesus as exorcist and that ultimately that's the lesson is the turning towards him right summately and that's what the team in their particular response to the individual is helping that individual to turn towards them it's not so much it is the actions of what they're doing during the liturgy that's what it is exorcism is a liturgy but it's that reception of that person to a life of faith is that a fair way of saying it yes that's that's a big part of it they also are repenting of their sins through sacramental confession if they're Catholic and then another important piece that most people don't think about is they're forgiving the sins of others and so a demon can hold on to or it gets traction from our sins that we're unwilling to let go of or keep trying to let go of and get away from but they can also hold on to when we are unforgiving of the sins of others that have hurt us and so as we know from the our father forgive us our sins as we forgive those who have sinned against us we know that God wants us to forgive as he forgives us you know the parable of the king who forgives the debt of the one slave and then that slave goes and beats up another slave and says give me you know the little bit you owe me and then when the the king finds out about this he throws the first guy who he had forgiven who's now being mean in turn in jail so we see this played out time and time again God expects us to be merciful and that that is part of it and then you know in an interesting twist sometimes the unforgiveness towards yourself becomes a stumbling block to total freedom because if a person feels they deserve to be punished and suffer and they're not forgiving themselves even though they know they've been sacramentally forgiven they even understand and believe Jesus has forgiven them but if they feel that they can't forgive themselves and that they deserve this that also gives the demon traction to hold on so there's kind of a pastoral process that is woven through exorcism over time working with the person outside of the sessions before and after and chatting with them and you know basically spiritual direction and that's the part that's missing in the movies oh yeah that's an incredible part of it because as I alluded to earlier you know it's the opening of doors I mean we can for example I have priests come through our house and bless our homes place Benedictine metals at windows go through the whole ritual as family but then we go downstairs and put on a television screen or open up online and allow something that's evil in character into our house or to do actions what was the point of the of the prior blessing I don't think we appreciate the fact that there is a need for repentance and a conversion of action not just of words and correct yeah and again Jesus knows our hearts so we can't just give lip service to these ideas because he knows what's going on with us for real and he's looking for real conversion and so you know it's just so important because ultimately he doesn't allow this stuff just because he wants to allow it you know he doesn't enjoy the fact that we're suffering but he allows it as a corrective experience so we realize the thing that we're embracing and we turn and run back to it so ultimately he's looking for closeness with us and possession is something that happens to people that generally are running away from Jesus and are far from him and specifically are embracing demonic spirits in some way and so he's not allowing this to be mean he's saying I'm gonna let you see the monster that you've chosen hoping that the person will then turn away and come back to him no I thought it was really important in that particular section in closing from the exorcisms by Jesus that you point out that he does Commission the 12 but in the 72 as well to go out but it's important that it's not only the priests and the bishops who have the authority to cast out demons and that would be revealed over time but it took centuries in a way for the church to find the need to limit the exercise of the use of exorcism and you really broke that open I thought that was so fascinating the research you did on that well it was a journey the church went through and you know one thing we have to remember in the very early church it was just apostles and followers you would have the equivalent of a bishop in your city or your region who would be you know the current apostle but there wasn't this whole hierarchy of you know deacons and priests and formal offices within the church because we're you know for the first 300 years the church was under terrible persecution it wasn't this big wealthy institution with buildings and schools and everything else it was it was a struggling little movement and so we have to remember in those very early centuries there weren't priest exorcists because there weren't priests in the very beginning it quickly came about but again with the persecution in the early church things just weren't that organized and then as the church spread around the world communication wasn't there we didn't have an internet letters could take weeks months or never arrive you know sending information around the world at that time and so it was a very different world it took centuries for the church to figure out this ministry and then through hard experience and seeing how difficult the ministry is and how it can chew people up and how it can lead to pride which leads to destroying people and causing heresies to develop and all kinds of other problems the church wisely said we need to regulate this so that qualified people are doing it it's not just you know somebody deciding they're gonna pick it up because they'd like to the church wanted to make sure people were qualified and then had kind of a proper context to keep them safe and effective essentially yeah it isn't a game and there isn't something that you oh I'm fascinated I'm curious about this I want to explore more yes reading your book is the great way to do that if you have that inkling but the actual ministry of it there is so much involved and you go into the different types of exorcism and how they developed for anybody who wants to understand more about the free masonry dynamics that are addressed by exorcism that's fascinating but also it's a very real issue isn't it yeah so the minor exorcism what's sometimes called the Leonine exorcism because Pope Leo the 13th wrote it in 1890 was originally explicitly directed against Freemasonry it wasn't a general exorcism against the devil it was it was against Freemasonry and Freemasonry since it's you know within 20 years of it coming into existence in the world in the early 1700s the church was identifying it as the church's greatest enemy in the world and there's been you know papal statements I think there's at least seven different popes have made formal bulls and statements about Freemasonry condemning it reminding Catholics that their ex communicated if they become Freemasons which is still the case by the way and so yeah the the minor exorcism actually was all about Freemasonry and that's why I took that kind of a side in the book to explain the history of Freemasonry and where it came from so that we could see it kind of from the church's perspective and imagine you know how they were seeing Freemasonry and why that may have led to this

He continues to serve as a retreat leader and director to bishops priests and sisters seminarians and other religious leaders. Building a kingdom of love reflections with Monsignor John Assef I'm your host Chris McGregor. Angels are so much on my mind today to talk to you about and I would like to begin with the guardian angel. I was very much enamored of my angel as a child. Ever since I can remember my brother and I were roommates and we had in our room you know that picture of guardian angel guiding this child across a bridge and we certainly he and I had so many scrapes as children we have some of them in our book but as two boys growing up and we were so companions because I can't remember being my memories go way back but they they don't go back before my brother because I was only a year and a half old when he came along so I always had this companion and so it's kind of easy for me to believe that I have a companion the angel the guardian angel is given to us from the first moment of our conception the guardian angel is interuterine he is given to you from your mother's womb and from the first moment that that egg fertilizes that is for that seed fertilizes that egg that soul that's blown into that person who now is going to be that's the beginning that's the moment your guardian angel begins to protect you and watch over you so he's with you and assists you in your life in the womb because how many more things are being told to us these days about what happens to the child in the womb it's a whole life in there if you're a single birth if you're you know are you my mother tells the story about that what do they talk about when a child is turned around and I was a breach breath I was going to be a breach birth and what happened to me is I got turned around and there's like all kinds of assistance that goes on within the womb guardian angel is right there assisting you in the birthing you know I think so many times we've it's good for a mother to know that that baby is being watched over and protected how that life is there and how the mother loves that baby from the moment that she knows she's pregnant and so the the baby is being watched over and cared for within the womb and then in the birthing your guardian angel comes with you that that angel stays with you from that moment of conception not only until you die but if you fail to go to paradise that angel reminds people on earth to pray for you so often you know some people who are not yet and may be in purgatory and not yet settled in their in their home forever in heaven that angels work is to go to the people on earth or to others to pray for that soul and I really believe that many of us are reminded oh my grandmother or my uncle so -and -so or having a mass offered for so is really inspired by the angel who comes and asks why don't you have a mass said for your dad why don't you have a mass said for your aunt Tilly so that there's there's that reminder to pray for the dead so until that's also because even in the liturgy itself it says at the death of a person may the angel lead you into paradise may the martyrs receive you on your way so as we go into the eternal city the angels are individually created angels do not multiply like humans so therefore if there are six billion people in this universe and each one of us has a specific guardian angel then there must at least be six billion angels God in making angels we always hear scripturally that there are myriads you know what myriads is millions and billions he just makes them and he creates them individually the least angelic creature is greater than any human creation you know after all man is only half spiritual half of him is material or physical he's half animal half spirit so that our bodily part it's no less beautiful it's a creation that we have feet and arms and legs and and we have a sex to us know that individual creation of my body is a very beautiful creation God has made the the marvel of a human body you know when I go to doctors and see especially if a person becomes ill the functioning of a healthy organ and a body is such a magnificent the eye the complexity of what an ear is or what a face is so what a brain is this is a magnificent each one of us who are human have been given this body creation and we have be given a spirit which is that part of us we are a body soul composite so that when we do die it's not only that the soul goes on to live because that's the part of us that will live eternally that's the part of us that's immortal but so is our body going to be so when the body and we believe that it's going to be raised from the dead we believe in the resurrection of the body so that it will participate in the glory of God in heaven forever or in the damnation in the fires of hell or whatever there is for eternal damnation and torture so we do know that we have any we are not made to die we are made to live eternally and because of Jesus who gives us a new life we are called now to live eternally in heaven he has given us the opportunity of salvation when he died on the cross Jesus saved everyone from the time of the cross back to Adam and Eve but they were not able to enter into glory because of Adam and Eve sin so he by his death on the cross brought salvation to every human being from Adam and Eve down to the year 33 and from the third year 33 to the end of time so that the cross is the salvation of all of mankind the desire of God was to save all of the human family each member of that family has a guardian now I'd love to go over that prayer angel of God my guardian dear to whom God's love commits me here so that God has sent an angel to be with me to watch over me to guard and to assist me to enlighten me to inspire me to guide me so this and we usually like to use the word guard because I think each of us is dealing with a lot of hostility in the world in which we live so there's a protective nature to this friend of ours and be careful watch for yourself and these inspirations that we receive daily and how many times you know driving along there's like an inspiration of why don't you take this street instead of that or that some different you slow down here this is like our guardian protecting us and I I often think how important it is to develop that relationship with our guardian angel to become more familiar I developed a very strong relationship with my guardian angel I think I had it as a child I kind of lost it and then it came back to me very early in my priesthood and I remember meeting a long tradition with Carmelite nuns who said to me why don't you ask your guardian angel its name because your guardian angel has a name it's a particular spirit and if you ask your guardian angel what your name is you would be able to become more familiar because you could call him by name and you could become more dependent on him and ask him and and then develop a closer relationship with him because every guardian angel has a nature it's an angelic nature it is hugely powerful and not incidentally every guardian angel is not the lowest rank of angel you could have a guardian angel from the archangel class you can have an archang you can have an angel that's your guardian from the seraphim or cherubim or Thrones I'll talk about those choirs of angels because they have enormous power each one in gradation and they they come according to the power that was given to them in their nature which is vastly different from each other they are all invisible creatures but they are all creatures made by God who have this nature and it's a particular nature I'm starting off with guardian angels because they're the ones I think that we're most familiar with we'll return to building the kingdom of love with Monsignor John Essip in just a moment did you know that discerning hearts has a free app where you can find all your favorite discerning

He continues to serve as a retreat leader and director to bishops, priests and sisters, seminarians and other religious leaders. Building a Kingdom of Love Reflections with Monsignor John Essif. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. What's on my mind is such a, such a humble and beautiful saint, the little flower of Jesus, St. Teresa. The story of the little flower is so powerful in itself. It's so contra what our modern day sees as successful. First, like she goes to a Carmelite convent and, you know, people of our day say, well, she buried her talents, she buried her life, and even the idea of prayer being contributory to the world and its happiness. The little flower spent eight years in a Carmelite convent, a very short life. She died at 24. Even when she was in the convent, the sisters hardly knew anything about her life of holiness. She had kept a journal, her autobiography. She was asked and in fact ordered to write it by her superior. The wisdom of that book, I know, and I was in the seminary in the 40s and the 50s. Her story of a soul is one of the most popular spiritual books and it's so simple. She is the saint of the ordinary. She transforms every act of her life into an act of love and also a desire to unite her prayer with the sacrifice of her love. She became a victim of love for souls. Her whole desire during those eight years was to save souls for God through prayer, through sacrifice, through love. The hiddenness of her life, in fact, when she died, her sisters, who didn't know the depth of her love and her sanctity, said, what are we going to say about her? She has done nothing extraordinary, nothing that would catch the attention of anyone. She takes something like the rattling of the beads, which drove her crazy. She was so highly sensitive and some nun would rub the beads up against the bench in back of her and it would cause her like chalk on a blackboard and that's what would do with her system. She used that as an act of sacrificial love and transformed it and took it as an occasion and an opportunity to offer a sacrifice to God. The crankiest and the most rejecting of all the sisters, she would see them and embrace their rejections. I was just recently with a priest. His face would crack if he would smile. He was so unhappy. It's amazing and just to be around him, it was like pus oozed from his system of unhappiness. He wanted to know everybody to know just how unhappy he was and he would want to make everybody as unhappy as he was. And even to stand next to him, you know, what an opportunity that would be that St. Therese would say, why don't you just give him love and offer him the love so that he could have an opportunity to love. You know, just being around a person who's angry, upset all the time. So all of us have these opportunities in our day and the scripture in the mass that Jesus taught us, the church is teaching us on her feast, the disciples came to Jesus with the question, who is the greatest, most important in the kingdom of God? He called over a little child and stood him in their midst and said, I assure you, unless you change and become like a little child, you will not enter the lowly. Becoming like this child is the greatest and most important in the kingdom of God and the heavenly reign, the simplicity and the humility of a child. Now I believe in order for us to see a child who just simply looks at you with simple love. And so therefore, I really believe what Jesus is looking at is a little, little child in our society. Take today and see where in your neighborhood, in your family, look at a child. My cousin, Christine, of baby, she was so sweet, Olivia, just her eyes, her every smile, everything that would come into that child's face would be some of the most beautiful things that I could remember. I think that's the kind of child this was that our Lord meant in the gospel. There's a prayer. I was with my cousin and he had been making an avina to know what job he should take. And his favorite saint, and she is a favorite saint of so many, was the little flower. He would say this prayer to God through the intercession of St. Teresa. And she claimed, those who are devotees of St. Teresa claim, that they receive a rose or would have a rose as a sign that their prayer would be answered. And he made an avina and he got not only a rose, but his wife had given him this 30 roses. She didn't know that he was doing this, saying these prayers. He got an offer for a job that was absolutely unable to refuse. It was so powerful a sign right after he had received this bouquet of roses. And it was a sign to him that he should change his job. So many that I've talked to, the beautiful example of the little flower of humility, simplicity, childlikeness, and the prayer. My mother's middle name was Cecilia Teresa Esef. It's on her tombstone. She had this tremendous devotion. In fact, she gave a middle name to my sister Marlene. Marlene is Marlene Therese and also Mayanne Therese. And she had great devotion to the little flower. And she herself was a third -order Carmelite. And she had a way about her. My mother's prayer was very powerful for all of us. All of us, my cousins and so many people in our family. She never was out there. She wasn't someone who got into the mother's in school or in the altar and rosary in the parish or outside the family. She had five children. When I was a little boy, I would get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and I would see my mother on her knees. I thought every mother did this. When she would take us for a walk, she would stop in the church and she would make the Stations of the Cross. And we would kind of be there with her. But we just took for granted. That's what mom did. All her life, her entire life, her rosary, her prayers. And she had this power about her. Not really being noticed. But in our family, I would say, everyone who would refer to my mother would say she was like the holiest person they had ever met at her death. That's what she was known for. Prayer, humility, and childlikeness. She had a simplicity about her. And I saw this characteristic in some. When a person has this hiddenness, this characteristic of trusting in the power of prayer. Although the little flower never left her caramel and died at the age of 24, she has been known all over the Catholic world as the patroness of the missions. She is the saint of Vietnam.

A highlight from Pastor Greg Locke

"Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original, something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Metaxas. Hey there, folks. Welcome to Friday, which means I'm in California. I've never traveled this much. Chris, I don't know who I am anymore. I don't know where I am. It's unbelievable. I find it best to get a Sharpie with someone as busy as you are to kind of write it down on your arm so when you wake up in the morning, you know. You can just look over. Oh, Iowa. Thank you. Before I forget, in this hour, we're talking to our friend Pastor Greg Locke from the Nashville area in Tennessee. He has a book out. Very exciting. Yesterday, I was on the phone with my friend Ken Fish. And, you know, these are the two people, Ken Fish and Greg Locke, that are talking about deliverance and are involved in the ministry of casting out demons. Now, if you don't believe in that, you might as well say you don't believe in the periodic table or science. This is reality. If you've ever been around it, I defy you to tell me what you think is going on. But anyway, we're talking to Greg Locke and that'll be our one today. I'm not sure who we have an hour or two yet. It'll be somebody great. But it will be somebody great. That's the only thing I can say. And my hair looks like it was styled by Vivek Ramaswamy's people today. I don't know what's going on with my hair, so please try not to look at it. Yeah, Eric, it's very important. You don't want to go full Bollywood with your hair. It just will look too fantastic and terrific. That's what Vivek is doing. He's going full Bollywood. It's kind of like Elvis on steroids. Elvis, Prince, Jerry Lee Lewis is kind of a pompadour kind of thing happening. OK, but listen, we don't want to talk about that. We want to talk about the fact that I'm traveling so much. Why? I don't know why, but I will tell you next week I'll be in Grand Rapids doing an event at Cornerstone University. After that, I go back to Dallas, where I'm doing something Christ for the Nations. 7th. That's October Then I go to San Antonio. I'm speaking in San Antonio October 11th. Sorry, October 10th. Then I go back to Dallas. We're doing a number of Socrates in the City events, which are totally sold out. I'm sorry about that. But if you go to Socrates in the City dot com, you can watch it live. It's going to be October 12th live and you can watch it. I hope you will. I want people to understand that, you know, it can be fun to watch it live because it's not edited. So all the flubs and fluffs and a lot of cursing. I'm just being honest with you. A lot of cursing. We have some guests. It gets very wrong. It's very salty. But we edit that out eventually. But if you want to see it, if you want to hear it, if you've never heard. I was just going to say I now can just you tell it what you want to leave in. And, you know, if you want to keep in the word, you know, honky tonk, it will leave that in. But it'll it'll delete other words you don't want in there. So that's Socrates in the city dot com. You can sign up for that's that's the event we're doing on October 12th on October 13th. I'm going to stay there in Dallas, Fort Worth, and we're doing some Socrates in the studio sessions, one of which will be with the great John's Mirack. He has a book coming out called No First Amendment. No First Amendment. Sorry. No Second Amendment. No first. It is a book worthy of John's Mirack writing. So I'm glad he wrote it. So we're going to be doing a Socrates in the studio session with him on October 13th. It just gets crazy. After that, I go to Augusta, Georgia. I'm I'm reading this Augusta, Georgia, Houston. I'll be in Houston on October 19th. Johnson City, Tennessee. That's right. I'm going to Johnson City, Tennessee. From there, I'm doing a number of appearances where we're promoting the letter to the American Church documentary film. So I'm going to Albuquerque, going to San Diego. I'm going to the L .A. area again to promote that. Then I'm going to be in Omaha, Nebraska. Am I making this up? I'm going to be in Omaha, Nebraska. I'm going to be in Colorado Springs. I'm going to be in Rocky Mountain Cavalry Church in Colorado Springs. I'm going to be in Chino Hills with Jack Hibbs. It's crazy. And I actually ask you to pray for me because this is a very solid, crazy schedule that I will need. I need prayer support. And I believe in that. I know there are people who pray because it gets tough.

A highlight from IP#501 Adam Blai The History of Exorcism, Part 1 on Inside the Pages with Kris McGregor Discerning Hearts podcasts

"Discerninghearts .com presents inside the pages insights from today's most compelling authors I'm your host Chris McGregor and I am delighted to be joined by Adam Bly who is a church decreed expert on religious demonology and exorcism for the Pittsburgh Diocese he's helped train exorcists for over 15 years and has attended hundreds of solemn exorcisms his journey started in brain wave research and psychology and is now focused on the spiritual realities of miracles angels demons and possessions he's also the author of several books including the exorcism files with Adam Bly we go inside the pages of the history of exorcism published by Sophia Institute press Adam thank you so much for joining me sure Chris it's great to be back with you I'm very grateful for the history of exorcism I think it's an important work I think it's one of those things that needs to be brought out in the light because people have a lot of different ideas about what exorcism is but also maybe not an appreciation of its role in the life not only of the church but even before that and you bring that forward so clearly so thank you so much the history is all there so I really didn't do a whole lot except try to put it together and maybe synthesize it a little bit but I found it to be a really interesting story which is why I wanted to to get it out to people in the form of a book because yeah as you said most people really have no idea where this came from they've just kind of seen the movies you know they have their ideas from there which which is really distorted obviously Hollywood doesn't know much about this so yeah I'm hoping it'll kind of demystify it a little bit and and also it had some interesting twists in the road through the history of this so it's kind of a neat story I thought and I'm not saying that about like my own book I'm saying that the history of it is just it's a neat history well I'll say it for your book it is a neat book I found it fascinating and I think context is everything isn't it so to understand something more fully you need to be able to put things into context don't you mm -hmm yeah I think you do and hopefully it'll help not only with the idea of solemn exorcism but the whole deliverance world it kind of puts the whole range of prayers in a context because it shows back when it was more of a gray area and prayer was just prayer and you know deliverance and exorcism weren't well defined in the early church in terms of where the lines were between them so I hope it'll lead people to understand why exorcism is is really a qualitatively different thing than just deliverance prayers how did you become involved in the ministry that that helps to free people from a captivity that the church wants to be able to offer them well it's a long story but it's about 15 or 16 or 17 years ago I was doing graduate work in adult clinical psychology and mainly brainwave research and I was curious whether any of these strange experiences were real or if they were an artifact of the brain or mental illness and so I started looking into it stumbled across a possessed person early on it wasn't like anything I had seen clinically or been trained for clinically the interventions that you would do in psychology for psychosis had no impact and that led to you know obviously questions and then as I got to meet specialist clergy and got drawn into this and saw full -blown cases of solemn exorcisms I started seeing things that you can't explain and so once I realized it's a real phenomenon it's a real spiritual reality I then decided to basically as long as God was willing dedicate my life to it because there was so few exorcists around at that time you know 27 well about 17 years ago the ministry really you know it had faded out it was almost gone and so we've been working you know as a community for a lot of years and now there's a lot of exorcists trained up in the United States you know a few hundred at least and there's more every year so things are really kind of rolling at this point well the really good news about that is it as you said in the past maybe 15 years or so institutes have developed the one that I'm more familiar with is the Pope Leo XIII Institute that is established by priests and also their particular teams which include practitioners as you are someone who is not only devout in his faith but somebody who has an understanding of the human person which can help them to provide their ministry and then that's an important thing isn't it yeah and it's good to mention of course I'm a lay person I'm not a priest I don't actually do exorcisms only a priest with permission from their bishop can do that but God seems to have called me into a kind of unique role of training and teaching and essentially coaching priests and particularly new exorcists so the best way to learn is kind of in the situation so I do teach at the Leo Institute and I've taught at other national conferences for years and things like that but really the at the end of the day you have to do it and kind of be mentored by other exorcists and people with experience basically and just wanted to be clear so people don't make the mistake of assuming I'm an exorcist I know from the founders of the Pope Leo XIII Institute I know Monsignor John S.

A highlight from Ethereum ETF LAUNCHING Monday?! (Leaked SEC Documents)

"Good morning, everybody. It is September 28th. It's 1130, and it is time to discover crypto. We got Tim and BJ on the ones and twos. How are you two doing today? I'm doing fantastic, man. Alright. Ready for the show. BJ, are you in the silent era? Yes. Okay. He's in the silent era. Guys, we got a great show today. We're going to talk about the Bitcoin 1 %ers. We're going to talk about ETH futures ETF and how a senior analyst of ETFs at Bloomberg thinks it is going to be approved on Tuesday, folks. And that's why maybe you're seeing this huge, huge pump in ETH and a lot of alts as well. Also, we're going to talk about Gary Gensler getting roasted. We're going to replay the clip of the Pokemon cards. It's just too good not to share. Also, AI is alive. It's alive right now. How soon do we have a Terminator 2 style D -Day? Give it about 30 years. 30 years, folks. 30 years. Alright. We'll go ahead and start building the bunker right now. Yes, DC's in the suspenders. I know. If you just had the green bow tie, you and McHenry. Alright. One, I'm not going to wear a bow tie. Nothing against bow ties. Just bow ties aren't for me. I'm going to wear a regular tie with the classic winds or not, or I'm going to wear the suspenders. Yeah. This used to be my old bartending get up. I'll tell you what. You wear the suspenders in the button -up shirt. I'll wear the hoodie, but I'll wear the bow tie with the hoodie, and then we'll complete the whole ensemble. Okay. Okay. So you'll be like Fetterman, and I'll be Fetterman's, like, lowest level employee. Exactly. Yes. What were you going to say, BJ? That's like Voltron, yeah. Yeah, yeah. Then we'll team up. Alright. Well, let's just get right to the market cap story here. Alright. Where are we at? Whoa. Did you see that pump right there? Yesterday, we were up around 0 .4%. Today, we are up 2 .3 % for the crypto market cap. We had passed 1 .1 trillion. 24 -hour volume for the first time in a long time is above $50 billion. We're coming in at $52 billion. Bitcoin dominance, Tim's looking a little happy here. It was 47 .1 for a few days. It is now up to 47 .3. Gas, surprisingly low, only 20 Gwei, but it's actually about double of what it was yesterday, but still pretty low. I was surprised to see that. Alright, let's look at the pricing here. We have Bitcoin up 2 .1%. It is now coming in at 26 ,858 bucks. We have Ethereum past 1600, now 1638. It is up 2 .5%. BNB up 1%. XRP up 0 .5%. And we have Cardano up 1 .6%. Solana. Solana is pumping, folks. We have it up 2 .6. And TonCoin erasing about a third of the losses of the past week. It is up 2 .7%. But I'm ready to look at some of these top gainers. Ooh, look at Bitcoin Cash as well. Have you ever thought about trading Bitcoin SV or Bitcoin Cash? Because they do have pretty big moves. Yeah, no, I mean, they definitely are probably better for trading, especially if you want to stay away from leverage, but you still want to be able to utilize the moves of Bitcoin. But yeah, I haven't ever done it. Don't think I will. Okay. Alright. Well, let's look at the top gainers. Let's look at the top losers here. Wow. We have Compound. It is skyrocketing, folks. And Compound has shot back into the top 100. I have RollBit up 12 % just for today. I have a little bit of exposure to RollBit and a little bit of exposure to Apecoin. And I have a couple comic book issues of Thor, but I don't know if that will affect my pricing there. But it is up 10 .8 % and Apecoin up 7 .4%. Bitcoin Cash coming in as the top five gainer here, followed by Lido, DAL, then Aave, GMX, Maker, Arbitrum, Stacks. And then, hey, look, a little Chainlink way down at the bottom. Do you have any of these alts? You're not much of an alt guy, right? No, I mean, I have alts, but I don't go that deep. The moment I have about eight of them, Aave is one that is close to being on the list of maybe I'll come into it. You know what? You don't want to get into, though. I've been watching a lot of maybe... I think he's going to come on the show in the future. Shout out to Crypto Archie. Archie's been going really deep in some degens that are sitting around like a $4 million market cap, and their chances of 100Xing are greater than others. I do think I'm going to start looking into a real good degen portfolio. It's probably not going to take up more than... 10 % is probably being generous in my entire portfolio, but I like where I am. I'm definitely very top -heavy when it comes to crypto. I'm more conservative with my investments, but I'm going to take a little bit of risk this market. All right, BG says, BCH is my secret crush. My dirty girl, he calls it. Where's the one person? A million dollar vision. We're going to give you a million dollar vision. Hopefully, you can stick around and just be part of that positive message. I believe you will. I'm believing in you. All right, well, speaking of believing, I'm believing today we'll not have any of these these coins in the biggest losers of the top 100 cryptocurrencies here. I'm manifesting it. It's failed in the past, but today I'm feeling good. Let's go ahead and look. What do we have? We have Casper. All right, I'm not pale as it goes just yet. Casper is down only 1 .2, then followed by tethered gold. So this is a peg to gold price here, then gate, then another gold. We have another gold coin essentially losing here, then injective, and then stable coins. Wow, I escaped it today. I escaped it today, but gold's on the way down and I have exposure to gold. So does that count? Any day that stable coins are in your top losers, it's a good day for crypto. All right, can we, before we jump over to the top story here, can we look at some gold pricing and silver pricing here? I want to look at gold on Kitco, and if you want to look at silver, maybe we could check out some prices. I like Kitco, K -I -T -C -O. Here we have gold pulling up. Gold is down $14 for the day, so not a whole lot there when the price is coming in at $18 .61. How soon until ETH passes an ounce of gold? One ETH almost equals one ounce of gold. Costco starting to sell gold. I looked into it. They sell out usually within hours whenever they limit two per customer, but they sell one ounce nuggets right around spot price. All right, what do we have for silver? I don't know if this is the right one or not. I looked it up. This says CFDs on silver. Oh, you're a trading view guy. We like trading view. Shout out to Marcus Seifer. Price slightly down, but it's definitely got a consolidation kind of pattern going on here. Yes, we're still kind of moving, setting some higher lows, but we kind of flat out here. After kind of getting kind of in this region, we've flattened out with these lows. The resistance is getting lower, but I'm going to go ahead and say, Deezy, I think that this is a pattern. Watch what happens to support. We're back down at support, but this is a pattern I would almost lean more towards a move to the upside. Let me look at oscillators on this. Yeah, I'm feeling like that's bullish. I'm feeling like that's bullish. Plus, silver has underperformed relative to gold in the past 10, 20 years. I'm feeling pretty good about it right now. Yeah, no, the charts on the daily chart look more bullish than bearish, I would say. It's kind of sitting somewhat in the middle, but more bullish than bearish. All right, and we have Danny Boy saying, look at 100 coin. Maybe, maybe. We'll see. I don't know. Maybe we'll get some time here. All right, well, let's get into the top story here. ETH, futures, ETFs. What is it going to mean? I also got some short form content. Guys, we have an article talking about these Bloomberg analysts. I'm just going to do the deep dive as well, so let's read paragraph or two, and then we'll just see what exactly they're talking about. Let's go to the source material. Let's go to the source code of the simulation here. Bloomberg analyst shares information leaked from the inside that SEC on Ethereum futures ETF. They gave the good news date, folks. We're talking about Eric Balchunas. He's the senior ETF analyst. We're not talking about the janitor there. We're not talking about, you know, the guy that makes a tweet every now then. We're talking about their senior ETF analyst. And he said in a statement, he has inside on info when the SEC will approve the ETH futures ETF. Now, we know there's inside information. Who's going to have better inside info than Bloomberg senior ETF analyst? I'm feeling pretty good about this guy's sources. Now, you got to be careful. Never trust anonymous sources. But if I'm going to trust one, I might end up having to trust this one. All right, let's see what exactly were they talking about? It all started. Let's James Safart here. Nothing yet, but watching for filings to indicate Ethereum futures are indeed being accelerated for launch next week. All right, so what was he talking about here? Here's a repost from Eric. So Ether future ETFs could be trading as early as Tuesday, folks, as the SEC looks to speed things up and in order to get it done before the looming shutdown, just like they sped up delays on spot Bitcoin ETFs. If so, issuers likely in mad scramble as we seek to update the doc. So we have the government shutdown to thank for this actually getting sped up because we covered it I think two days ago. We looked at when the government shutdown happens, what happens through the individual agencies. If you weren't here, guys, SEC will reduce 90 % of its workforce, CFTC along the same line. So 10 poise, there's only going to be one showing up in that office. That's going to be a very lonely office. So what they're trying to do, they're trying to clear all the paperwork off the desks before it's just that one guy alone. I feel bad for that guy. Who is that guy? Shoot us a message here. All right, well, let's go back to X here. So he was quote tweeting this tweet from 14 hours ago. Well, let's, uh, let's see looking like SEC is going to let a bunch of ETH futures ETFs go next week, potentially. And then he was quoting this tweet. So let's look at that tweet. And then that was the one earlier hearing they might update so they can go on effective on Monday and trade on Tuesday. They've asked filers to update their docs by fry, uh, Friday PM. Uh, I'm guessing that's the end of day Friday. So they have till tomorrow, 5 PM Eastern standard time, get your paperwork done. If you get your spot futures, I'm sorry, your futures ETF paperwork filed, you might be able to trade it on a Tuesday. We're going to go ahead and get that in submitted on a Monday. So this guys, this could be very, very big. Now we have to wait till Monday, you know, nothing set in stone here, but however, according to the analyst, they will approve, uh, of the applications that candidates who do update it by Friday afternoon, and they will begin trading on Tuesday. Uh, how speaker McCarthy rejected the stopgap funding bill advancing in the Senate on Wednesday, leaving us just four days from the fourth partial shutdown of the U S government in the past decade. It is thought that a closure event would deeply affect the sec. It is rumored that the spot ETF applications were postponed early for this reason. So chat, where are you coming in? Are we going to shut down? I didn't realize we had done it four times in the past 10 years. I would have maybe said two in the past 15. That makes me think guys, I'm, I'm starting to lean towards, you know, if you asked me three days ago, I'm under 50%. I'm leaning towards 50%. I might even exceed 50 % by tomorrow. Where were you guys coming in on the odds of a government shutdown? Yeah, I think I'm a little low. I think I'd say maybe 35, 40 % it shuts down. I think they're going to have to do with both sides, but it would not behoove Biden to have that shutdown happen. There's a lot of reasons why they'd want to keep it open. Of course, there's a lot of Republicans in Congress, they're kind of pushing for it. They probably like it. They want it. I think they come to some sort of deal. They don't do it. Guys, should we just break down the alpha for you? You know, a lot of part, what makes this live show exciting is we can do things like BJ, while you go, could you look up October 19, 2021 daily candles on Bitcoin, October 19, 2021? Well, I'm going to be the idiot in the room as usual. So if we removed the debt ceiling and put it on pause till 2025, why would we even have a shutdown? Because it wasn't the entire shutdown when we would hit the debt ceiling. So that's not relevant for another 18 months. Yeah, that is a very good point on the debt ceiling. I think that that's a great question. So maybe that debt ceiling isn't as final as they made it appear because I was being told, oh, once this debt ceiling is raised, we don't have anything to worry about. And then two weeks later, we all of a sudden have something to worry about. So now we need to think about the next time they give us a debt ceiling raise. What the f are you actually doing here? Is it actually nothing? These game devs really need to figure out how they're building their ecosystem, because these rules just don't make sense anymore. They don't make, yeah, yeah. There's a lot of bugs in the code here. All right, we have the daily candles. See the date again? October 19th, 2021. If we just look at about a 30 -day period, maybe 10 days before to 10, 20 days after. Yep. So this is getting close to the top, but it was the, there's the, we ended up beating it out. But October 19th is right here. So it's this candle. We have one more day. We topped out on the 20th. Hover over the 19th. Right there. That is the day we had a Bitcoin futures ETF here. Move more to the right side. Let's, let's get a little bit in. That's the top right here. Let's stretch that Y axis. Let's stretch it out. All right, here we go. Go back to the 19th. Yep. The 19th, right? Let me go over here. 19th is right here. So in the lead up, it pumped, it pumped, but guys, that was a buy the rumor, sell the news. We had one more day. All right. They probably didn't want, you know, Fox Business News and MSNBC to be like, oh yeah, it got approved yesterday. Look at the price. So they gave us another 24 hours of pump. We've got the pump of metal pumping. Then, you know, a new cycle, you're probably not going to want to talk about it 36 hours later, 48 hours. So we got that pump. We got a nice strong pump for 24 hours. And then it went down folks. And then it went down. We went from, I believe that was about 55K, right? No, no, I'm sorry. 65K. 64, 64 .3. And then we dropped down to what about a week later? We got dropped down about 57 .8. All right. So we went from 63, 64, all the way back down to 57. And then we set in a new all time high. What was the amount of days from that low? What's the date? If you just hover, it gives you the date, right? On the bottom, it gives you the date. So date October 28th, it peaked November 10th. All right. So 13 days later. So a week later, it put in a local low. And then two weeks later, new all time high. Will the spot or will the futures ETH ETF play out in a similar way? I don't think we're, obviously we're not going to go to 4 ,500. We're not sending in a new all time high. But what I'm thinking is we might have a similar chart pattern. You're the Bitcoin ETF. In reality, this is only a period. That means we might have. All right. So that's the date. That's we're five days away from Tuesday, right? Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday. Go back five days from that, from the 19th. So go to the 14th, October 14th. 14th is right here. Boom. Nice big pump. It pumped for five days. Buy the room or sell the news. And then it dropped. And so maybe we're going to have a really good next four days. Maybe. You know, maybe I would say that that's a little bit premature. I think we have to look at a lot of different things going on. Obviously, we're getting close to the part where the market was going to top out and go to the downside. I think there, if anything, the case to be made here, even though there was some pump in that happens here, I would only make the case that this is proof ETFs can't save you from the bear market starting. I think there's I think it's a mixed bag. I think it's a little bit too irresponsible to try to say, well, back in October 2021, this happened. Well, there was a lot of things with timing and a lot of other different things. I think let's watch ETF. It will be bullish long term. But remember, futures ETFs allow both longing and shorting. So volatility is more what I'm predicting, not necessarily a firm. Let me play devil's advocate. That was what a lot of smart people thought was going to be the top or near the top. So if you have some, I have to hold this instrument for six months, and it's October 2021, you have one choice. You open in a long in October 21, you open in a short in October 21. I feel like a lot of smart money is choosing short. Well, let's go to today. We're almost half a year from the having. You have a choice. Are you going to open a long today to cash in in six months? Are you going to open a short today to cash in in six months? I feel like then many more people are going to choose short relative to today. You know what, let's actually that takes us into our next story. Let's talk about the big investors. Will they choose Bitcoin? Will they choose Ethereum? Will they choose, you know, futures or will they wait for spot? Here's what this Fidelity executive has to say. Ethereum investment thesis could be easier for institutions to grasp than this big, then bitcoins. And here is why. This was with the interview with a bankless YouTube channel. I do like bankless Fidelity's director of research, Chris Cooper, I think says the firm's Ethereum investment thesis could be an easier concept for blue chips to understand. With traditional, it's probably more easily go with them something like ether, then show them things where they grasp much quicker than investment thesis for Bitcoin. The investment thesis for Bitcoin, according to Cooper, is to truly understand it, you got to first to dabble into politics, got no little philosophy, got to know some game theory, got to know some economics, got to know some other concepts, you got to know the Byzantine generals problem, you got to know what the white paper is, you got to hate the NSA and the surveillance state. It's a lot, right? It is a lot. I remember that feeling, you know, half a decade ago, maybe more. Well, you know, I learned about Bitcoin, I didn't really get into it to about half a decade ago. I remember watching Andreas Antonopoulos clips on YouTube. And I just, I'm just alone in my living room with, you know, with, you know, maybe Mary J was there, but you know, I'm just alone. I'm watching this and my mind's getting blown here. And I'm just like, my God, I'm just so into what this guy is putting down. And then you go to your friend, and you try to, you're full of zeal. You feel like a religious apostle. And you're like, oh, my God, have you heard this thing called Bitcoin and what it's doing? And then you just get a blank stare back. Yeah. It's like, oh, yeah, I ate the orange pill, didn't I? Yeah. It's taken me back to these feelings here. All right. So yeah, it's a lot. Basically, what I'm saying, it's a lot to wrap your head around Bitcoin, folks. That's all I'm saying. I had the my first exposure to Bitcoin whatsoever was back in 2013. And I was the opposite side of that. What you just said, the staring face. There is this kid I met. He was very passionate about Bitcoin, tried to convince me it was the one world currency that Revelation talks about. He also was a pot farmer. So I looked at him and I said, OK, buddy, good story. Now, it turns out I should have gotten in when he told me to. He he was right. I should have gotten into Bitcoin. But I do hold to when you hear a lunatic who is growing pot for a living tell you that this currency is what Revelation talks about. You got it. You got to at least question it a little bit. I understand people still being stone faced at this point. Yeah. My first two exposure was 4chan and I was like, oh, anything they suggest is a scam, is a honeypot. And they are trying to hack me. And so that honestly, like in a weird way, learning I learned about it from too shady of a source. I was like, oh, yeah, I'm going to stay away from that one. The second exposure was my buddy buying ecstasy pills of Silk Road. And I'm like, again, another thing I want to stay away from. No, man, I'm good. I'm good. And then Silk Road happened. And also he lost his Bitcoin on a hard drive. So I was just like, yeah, I don't know about this, man. I don't know about this. And then eventually, you know, the hook got me there. All right. Well, you know, that's what we're saying about Bitcoin to truly understand it. It is a whole lot, you know, but imagine that you can get in front of them and just say, look, talking about Ethereum, here's the metrics, here's the cash flow, you put in your inputs, and they're looking at it like another financial instrument. And they're like, oh, yeah, that makes sense to me, you can have these scenario analyses where you could get your head around the probabilities. And then that way, people can size their position accordingly. That's how an institutional investor thinks. That's how a good investor thinks. They think around probability scenario analysis. And in fact, they are so strongly about that they capitalize the eye there. That's how institutional investor thinks. They really, they think about the probability scenarios there. So yeah, I think that's a pretty good, pretty good point there.

We're gonna bring in Ben Thompson from the Techery newsletter, which he's been on this podcast I think four weeks ago. And he's a huge Bucks fan. He's gonna give the Bucks fan side of things. We're gonna do million dollar picks. And then old friend Seth Meyers talking about a whole bunch of stuff. So really good podcast. It's all next. First, our friends from Pro Jam. What's up? All right, I'm taping this on Thursday afternoon. Normally when there's a big MBA trade, I always do the emergency trade reaction right after the podcast. But we just put up a podcast on Tuesday. So I decided to play it a little differently this time. I wanted a little distance, I wanted to listen to stuff, read stuff, and try to form some big picture opinions coming out of this. So I have four smaller ones, then one big one. First one, I thought Portland did an incredible job with this trade. I really liked this trade, especially everyone was trying to bully them in June and July about, oh, you got to take Miami's offer. You just got to. It's where he wants to go. It's the only offer you're going to get. And guess what? They waited. They played it perfectly. They stared Miami down, and they got a much better deal. First of all, they get the Drew Holiday piece that they can flip into a bunch out of their stuff, which we'll talk about in one second. I love the DeAndre Ayton gamble. As you know, on this podcast, I am a big DeAndre Ayton guy. Not in the sense of I'm the biggest fan of his in the world, but I'm a fan of the asset. I just think I love the valued assets, no matter what it is. Whatever market we're talking about, DeAndre Ayton, 18 and 10 for his career, 60 % field goals percentage, 25 years old. He's played in 45 playoff games. He played four rounds in the 2021 finals. Last year, he got his ass kicked by Jokic. Oh, sorry. Like, that never happens. And Phoenix just sold on him, which I can't wait to talk about. But just from a Portland standpoint, they not only get Ayton in whatever they get for holiday, they get the 29 first, they get the two swaps, and they dump Nurkic. Nurkic hasn't had a healthy start to finish all the way through the playoffs here since 2018, which I'm positive was a long time ago. He's basically 12 and 8. He's, you know, a 50 % shooter. I made a list of the top 30 centers. I encourage you to do this at home, because what's more fun than making lists of NBA centers? I can't imagine anything. I made a list of who I thought were the best assets of the center position for talent, contract, everything. He was 29th on my list. The only person I had ahead of him who's technically a starter, unless you start talking about the Detroit or Charlotte guys, was Zubats on the Clippers. I thought he was the 29th best center asset in the league. And Phoenix, you know, just quickly to go to them, they're trying to win this year. They got worse. They turned Ayton's money into Nurkic and Grayson Allen and Nasir Little. Grayson Allen, we already know with him, he can't play in playoff series. We saw him 22. We saw it last year. I heard and read in some places like that, I got two rotation players. Did they? Is Nurkic a playoff rotation player? Is Grayson Allen a playoff rotation player? Because I'm positive he's not. So for the same money that they were spending on Ayton, they got three guys that I don't think are going to help them. In 25, the money comes down a little bit to 23 million just for Nurkic and Little, which is 7 million less than Ayton. And then in 26, that money goes up to 25 .5. But I don't understand what Phoenix was doing. Why not wait to see if Ayton clicks with Vogel? Vogel has such a good history with centers. He rejuvenated Dwight Howard on the 2020 Lakers. He basically created Roy Hibbert's career in 2013 with the defense verticality thing. I thought he was going to do a good job with Ayton. I'm stunned that they gave up on him. I'm almost waiting for one of those, now they tell us stories when, you know, that's where Brian Curtis calls them, where like a week after something happens, there's this kind of notebook dump where it's like, here's seven terrible DeAndre Ayton stories. So maybe that'll happen. But for Phoenix just to be like, cool, we locked this down, man. We got Nurkic. You're trying to win the title. You have KD and Booker and Beal. And like, what are you guys doing? Anyway, from Portland's standpoint, I love the Ayton thing. I love that they didn't get bullied. And I know they're going to turn Drew Holliday into something. So this to me was at least an A minus for them, for where they were two months ago, where Dave's like, I want to go to Miami. That's it. And if you don't trade me there, that's kind of fucked up. And they made this work as it got reported that, uh, I think in the athletic, that he expanded his list to Brooklyn and to Milwaukee in the last two weeks. And that's what Portland was waiting on. You know, they were banking on the fact that he's a competitive dude. He's one of the best 75 pairs ever. He wanted a situation settled. So, you know, you wait, you wait, you wait, they expand the list and then you go. Uh, there's a Drew Holliday piece to this. That's awesome. He becomes a contender prize. I wouldn't call this a Drew Holliday sweepstakes. I reserved sweepstakes for the superstars, but it's a mini sweepstakes. This is somebody that could have a huge impact on the playoff race. You know, not only the usual suspects, everybody's talking about Boston, ironically, Miami is a really good fit for him. And in some ways, um, I'm a little more scared of them with Miami than Dame in some ways, especially at a much cheaper contract with giving up less and keeping some of their assets. Philly, if they could pull it off, they have to be in there in Golden State, Minnesota. I think I have to mention Sacramento, I think is a team that if they could figure out how to get Drew without giving up their core, which is basically Keegan Murray and Sabonis and Fox, like that's, you know, could Davion Mitchell be in that trade with some, with a salary and some picks, who knows. The team that I love for Drew Holliday is OKC. I have OKC, you know, I started doing my MBA research for the over -under spot and I haven't landed on a number for them yet, but to me, they feel like a high forties team with Chet and with the growth of their young guys. And if you just like, let's say they traded Lou Dort and a bunch of their picks, maybe two firsts and two of their lesser picks or three firsts and a second, whatever it is. And they just say, fuck it. And they get Drew and you put him with Giddy and SGA and Jalen fucking awesome Williams and Chet Holmgren and all these other dudes they have, that might be a top three team in the West. I mean, that, that's starting to give me some early 2010s OKC vibes. So where he goes is going to be important. I just feel like there was so much Drew Holliday slander the last couple of days. You know, he's one of my favorite players. Even Haralabob, who was the chairman of the board of the Drew Holliday fan club for years and would have the benefit dinners there and, you know, just did a lot of yeoman's work on that front. And even he was like, yeah, yeah, Dame's better than Drew. That trade makes sense for Milwaukee. I was hurt, Haralabob. I was 100 % hurt by that. But you know, Drew got his ass kicked by Jimmy Butler in the playoffs last year. I get it. It happens. Jimmy was unbelievable. I feel like he would have kicked anybody's ass. By the way, why is Drew Holliday guarding Jimmy Butler? That speaks more to some of the issues with Milwaukee. He was never supposed to be a point guard and a creator. I think he was always better as an off -the -ball guy. We saw that with Rondo and New Orleans and just in general. I want to see him with a point guard. I want to see him just being unleashed, not having the ball a lot, just worrying about hitting threes, being an occasional, you know, make -shit -happen guy and being like the third or fourth best guy on a team without having the offensive responsibility to have. All their half court issues got blamed on him for the last couple of years. And I get it. They weren't like an awesome half -court team, even the other one in the finals, but I really value that dude. I had him, even I did the trade value list in August and I had him 37th and I had Dame 23rd. I think he's one of the best 30 players in the league still. He's 33 years old, which, you know, I'm going to talk in a second about when guards hit their mid -30s, but just in general, I think he's a real asset. If he goes to a team like the Celtics and they can keep Derek White and Tatum and Brown in the center, it's like, look out, man. So little mini sweepstakes, rarely do we get the trade, but then we still get another asset to talk about. Thank you for everyone involved in the trade. And then the fourth small point is just that, you know, not rocket science, Milwaukee bought some Giannis time here. They have one of the best 20 players of all time. They were staring down the barrel of a situation that was not good. I was talking about it on this podcast in late June and early July. I thought he was going to put them on the clock. I thought Mark Lasry selling his stake was a really bad sign for all of this because that dude is smart. As I laid out in June, that guy is really smart. And if he's feeling like, you know what, it's time for me to sell my buck stock, that makes me nervous. And then all the stuff that Giannis said and did, which I thought he did really fairly and really smartly. And I think that dude's about titles and that's it. And I know we say that about players, but I think in his case, I don't think he cares about, you know, what's my legacy, how do I compare against Dirk DeWhisky, any of that stuff. I just think he wants more rings. I mean, think about the guys who have won two rings out of the best 35 guys on my list of my pyramid. Those are all guys in my top 35 that won multiple wings. You go to the one -ring side, Jerry West, Oscar, Moses, Dirk, Jokic, Giannis, Pettit, Garnett, Kawhi, Rick Barry. That's the list he's on now. I certainly don't think he's looking at that list going, I got to get away from these guys, but it's a slightly different list. I think when you win multiple rings in multiple situations, it elevates you in a certain way. I think he fundamentally understands that at least a little bit. I want to be the best player since LeBron James. I think that's a thing that he wants. How am I going to do that? I need more rings. I need more finals trips. He knew from last year and maybe even the Boston series that they just weren't good enough. Whether this trade is going to be the thing that propels them, we'll find out, but he's been in the league 10 years, two MVPs, five first teams, two second teams, and now we have this little two -year window. Kawhi and the Raptors was a one -year window. This is a two -year window, I feel like. With Giannis, he's got two years left in his deals. So does Lopez. Middleton has two in a player option. Dame's got two, and then this crazy $120 million player option extension thingy that he has that just keeps going and going. It's probably two years. There's a world where this could go terribly this season, at least for what the expectations are, and then maybe it becomes Kawhi, Raptors. Maybe Giannis is like, you know what? That didn't work. Trade me. And the Bucks, who have no picks left and no future, they look at it next summer, and they go, all right. We tried it. Giannis, what can we get for you? Dame, what can we get? And they just do a reboot, rehaul. Remember, they won in 2021, which just takes so much pressure out of this. It's so much different than the Clippers situation, where they went all in on Kawhi and Paul George. They give up all those picks and SGA, and they've gotten nothing out of it. They haven't even made the finals. So it's got to happen. I think they at least probably have to make the finals. If they get bounced in round two, do I think Giannis is going to stay because they made this Dame -Mower trade? Probably not. So that leads to the big question, is how good of a trade was this? So there's a big picture angle on Dame, and it's going to sound negative, but I really don't want it to sound negative because I think Dame, I voted for him for NBA Top 75. I think he's been one of the best guards in the last 15 years. I think there's a ton of great things you can say, and there's a chance that he goes to Milwaukee, and this thing is fucking awesome. I know any Celtic fan I've talked to, including Isaiah, who's helping produce this podcast today, the Giannis -Dame pick and roll is just terrifying. Other than Jokic and Murray, it's going to be the single most unstoppable offensive play in the league. It is. We are conceding that point. The spot Dame is in right now, big picture -wise, it's weird. He's a superstar, but he's not, and we've seen guys like this before. I judge superstars by, do you have the resume statistically, and is your team succeeding consistently at a certain level? You can't totally say that about Dame. He's never been on a 55 -win team. He's missed the playoffs completely four times in 11 years. He said three first -round exits. He made the Final Four once in 2019, which was really lucky because Golden State and Houston were the two best teams, and then they got smoked. He's never been on a true contender ever. Instinctively, you go, well, that's not his fault. Who's he played with? Well, he played with LaMarcus Aldridge and CJ McCollum and a couple other guys, but not really anybody. The reason I'm putting this up is there's a success element that he has not had yet that for somebody with his resume is actually kind of unusual. I went and I looked up how many guards in the history of the league averaged 22 points a game for their career and played at least 700 games. I thought the list would be like 20. I didn't know. I didn't know what I was walking into. Only I think 75 guys have averaged 22 a game. So I went and I looked up the list, and it was 10 guys, 700 games, 22 a game for their career. There were some guys who came close like David Thompson, who I think is one of the best guards I've seen in the last 45 years, but had a short career and had some drug issues. He didn't make it. He didn't play enough games. Pete Maravich, 24 .2 points a game, but he didn't play enough games. Kyrie hasn't played enough games yet. Bradley Beale is five games away. I'm actually kind of glad the cutoff's at 700 so we don't have to talk about him. And then Mitchell and Trey Young aren't there yet. There's only 10 guys that made it, and the 10 guys are all fucking awesome. And again, I mentioned this in the context of Dame, who we think he is versus the success he's had. So the 10 guys, Michael Jordan, 30 .1, Jerry West, 27 .1, Allen Averson, 26 .7, George Gervin, 26 .2, Oscar Robertson, 25 .7, Kobe, 25 .0, Harden, 24 .7, Curry, 24 .6, Wade, 22, barely made it, and Russ, 22 .4, and then Dame is at 25 again. All right, what does he not have that those other guys have? Well, MJ, don't need to talk about him. Don't need to talk about Jerry West, who's the freaking logo. Allen Averson, pretty good comparison, right? Big stats, really memorable player, but not a ton of success. Here's the difference. Averson made the finals once. He won an MVP. Dame has done neither of those things. George Gervin was the best scoring guard of the 70s. He made two final fours. He had some bad luck. He really, in 79, really should have came close. And some of it's on him, right? He could have come through. Bobby Dandridge is the one that ended up coming through for the Bullets. They lose. But two final fours, he had four top five MVP finishes, five first teams, four second teams. He was just unassailably the best guard in the league until MJ. Oscar Robertson, don't need to go through him, but he won a ring and an MVP. Kobe, five rings and an MVP. Eleven first teams for Kobe, by the way. James Harden, three final fours, an MVP, six top five MVP finishes, six first team MBAs. And even though Harden has never made the finals as the best guy, he made it with OKC as the sixth man, you could build a contender around Harden. We saw it. We haven't really seen it with Dame. I think that's a fair thing to bring up. Curry, four rings, two MVPs, you know, the Curry thing. Dwayne Wade, three rings, two top five MVPs, two first teams, three second teams. He's more in the Dame waters a little bit, but he had the 2006 finals and he was the second best guy with LeBron on those heat teams. And then Westbrook, who you would say, well, Dame had a better career than Westbrook. Did he? Westbrook made the finals in 2012. He was second best guy on that team. Almost made the finals in 2016. He won an MVP. He had two first teams and five second teams. It's at least like a real argument. And I think when you look at Dame, he only had that one 2019 round three, got bounced. He's only had one top five MVP finish. He's only had one first team MBA and four second team MBAs. Really, really good top 75 career. But the piece that's missing is, have you been on a really good team? Have you made a real run at it? Which is why, you know, I think this Milwaukee trade is so much fun. This is his real chance. I get nervous about a couple things with this trade. One is that, you know, if you look at the 33 and older guards who average 22 points a game in a season. Jordan did it twice. Curry did it twice. Still going. Kobe did it three times. Jerry West twice. Sam Jones once. Hal Greer once. That's the entire list. Now the NBA is different. We have more three -pointers now. It's easier to score. Scoring is the easiest it's ever been. Guys can play at a longer age. So I'm not ruling out Dane being good for the next three years. But just pointing out, history is saying, be a little nervous. In general with guards, like Chris Paul, we saw from age 35 to 36 to 37, like it just dropped. But that's two years older than Dane. Maybe it's fine. I just worry about guards. We have not a lot of instances with guards in their mid -30s of them either peaking as players or being able to sustain whatever success they had during their prime. It always starts to go down with really no exceptions, except for Steph Curry. He's the only non -exception. So if your case is Dane's as good as Steph Curry, or Dane can be as potent as Steph Curry on a winning team, like, you know, Steph Curry is better than Dane, but I'm not going to argue that he couldn't do a lot of the stuff that Curry did in Golden State. The bigger issue for me, the age I'm definitely worried about. Dane has not been healthy the last couple of years, and we have not seen him play nine straight months at playoff basketball with a big bullseye on his back. Everybody coming after you, you're the best team. We haven't seen him do that ever, much less than the last couple of seasons. So can he stay up? Can he stay healthy? That's one thing. The defense with Dane just got kind of swept under the rug the last couple days, and I don't really understand it because there's five categories of defensive player I feel like. There's excellent, there's good, there's average, there's not so good, and then there's bad. And I think Dane's a bad defender. I think the stats back it up. Like, his defensive rating last year was 245 out of the guards. He's the 245th guard for defensive rating. You know, 117 .4 individual defensive rating is 483 overall. Portland's team's always defensively, it was the Achilles heel for them. Partly because of Dane, because he couldn't guard anybody. He's too small. And, you know, think about what we saw from the playoffs the last couple years. I think about the 2020 bubble Celtics playoffs, not infrequently, because I think that team had a chance to potentially win a title. What happened? Everyone hunted Kemba Walker. It was hunting season. It's like, where is he? Got to get a switch. Got to get Kemba Walker guarding somebody who's bigger, or got to beat him off the dribble, and it just became a hunt session with him. And basically, he got played out of the league. He's not in the league anymore. You know, we had this with Isaiah Thomas, too, in the mid -2010s. I think it's been an issue with Kyrie Irving. The Celtics certainly went at him in the playoff series with Brooklyn a couple years ago. Curry, you saw, who I think is a better defender than people give him credit for, but the And he's a much better defender than Dame is. Jordan Poole is somebody that got hunted in playoff series recently. Chris Paul, obviously, is a big one. Jalen Brunson, remember what the Heat did to him? Mitchell, when he was on Utah, this was a huge issue. And then Trae Young, obviously. My fear with Dame is he's a DH, and I think in Portland, part of the reasons he was able to put up the stats he did was because he wasn't playing defense, right? It was just, how many points can I score? My team isn't very good, and I'm just going to do my thing. He's an incredible offensive player. But how much of a trade -off is the defense, right? Well, you think, all right, well, Milwaukee, they're really good defensively. They'll be able to protect him. Here's the team. Giannis, Dame, Lopez, Portis, Middleton, Conaton, Beauchamp, Crowder. Who's guarding Trae Young on this team? Who's guarding Jason Tatum? Here's a partial list of guys that I don't think this team will be able to guard this season. Devin Booker, Tatum, Butler, Trae Young, Kyrie, Curry. Who's going to be chasing Curry around the screens? Dame lowered? Good luck. SGA, Luca, Mitchell, Murray, Edwards, Brunson, Ja, Garland, Fox, Halburn. Are they going to be able to cover Derek White? I don't know. The way this team is constructed, they are not going to have the ability to guard other guards at all, which means they're just going to have to be in a shooting match with them, right? It's going to be not much different than what's going to happen with Phoenix, where they're just literally going to have to outscore the other team. I've just watched too much playoff basketball over the last couple years, where it's like, if you have that weak link on defense, and you're playing a team that's smart enough, they're going to go after that weak link. Like, think about them against the Lakers, right? The Lakers figure their crunch time. Let's say they make the finals. It's Milwaukee and the Lakers, and Lakers crunch time. They're going to have LeBron and Davis and Austin Reeves and, I don't know, a shooter and a point guard, whatever. All they're going to be doing is trying to find where Dame is on the court and going after him. What about when they play Boston? Boston puts out White and Brogdon and Tatum and Brown and a center, and all they're going to be doing is trying to make sure Dame is covering somebody who has the ball who's now torturing him. I think it's a real problem for them. And what's funny is they gave up Drew's defense and, you know, they, what they gave up on defense, which is significant, and they gained an offense, it might end up just being a wash and they might just be a different version of the same team where they still have a huge flaw. It's just on the other end of the court. I'm just shocked that nobody brought up the defense. I agree he's an amazing offensive player and what's cool about this trade and what I'm excited about as a basketball fan is, can he go up a level? Right? A lot of these stats he put up, especially the last couple years. They didn't mean anything. They were, he was on bad teams. Like, who cares? Ultimately, Bradley Beal scored 30 points a game on the Wizards. Who cares? I think most really good offensive players, if they're on a bad team, can get between 25 and 30 a night. Can you do it nine months in a row? Can you do it when you're getting hunted on defense all over the place? How much can Milwaukee protect him? And what does he have in the tank at age 33 with 900 plus games on the O 'Dominor already? I'm still afraid of the Bucks, but people have, like, FanDuel had them as best odds in basketball and I think most people feel like they're the favorite now. I don't feel like there's a favorite. I think you can go through every team. Boston, I could, I'm scared of Porzingis. What's going to happen with Jalen Brown out there? He has contracts. Can Peyton Pritchard, all these different things. Philly, God only knows. Miami, they're unquestionably worse. Yeah, Milwaukee is going to be really good, but depending where Holiday lands and how this all plays out, I just think it's still wide open. And the other piece, so if you're just talking Boston, Miami, Tatum kills Milwaukee. I have no idea why. Boston is kind of built to at least stay with Dame and, you know, Derek White is about as good of a person you're going to have to try to keep Dame in check, at least. And Boston's done a really good job of guarding Giannis over the years. They don't have Grant Williams this year, but I just don't think, I think there's as many ways this goes wrong as it goes right, I guess would be my final thought on this because for what they gave up, especially with that 29 unprotected and the two swaps and, you know, they are all in on this team. And you know my theory, when you go all in on a team, you better think you can win. Not positive, but it's an awesome trade. It really is. It makes the league so much more fun. Dame and Giannis together. I'm going to enjoy watching Portland. I still have my eating stock. Watching Phoenix fans slowly realize that Derkiszna isn't the answer is going to be fun and then we'll see where Drew Holliday goes. So really fun trade. We're going to talk about it a little bit more with Die Hard Bucks fan, Ben Thompson in one second. Let's take a break.

"Hey you, have you checked your bucket list lately? Are you ready to take care of item number seven? Listening to The Eric Mataxas Show? Well welcome, tune in, and then move on to item number eight. Skydiving with Chuck Schumer and AOC. Here now is Mr. Completed My Bucket List at age 12, Eric Mataxas. Hey there folks, welcome to the program. Hey Chris, do you know where I am? I believe you're in Texas. Yes, technically. I'm in Dallas, Texas, and I am in a hotel in Dallas, Texas. Tonight, I'm speaking at an event tonight for Parent Compass. That's going to be the Park City Baptist Church that's here in Dallas. I don't know, I think there's still tickets, but I will be signing books until the cows come home. I'd love that. So if there's anybody who can get to Dallas tonight, I'm speaking tonight, and I'm here for that. And I'm excited about it. I love being here, I have friends here. So with you in Dallas or Texas, you said till the cows come home. Technically, I think we need to state when that is, because that's literal in Texas. Yes, and they come home to Fort Worth, but they commute to Dallas. So tonight I got that event. Tomorrow I fly to California because I got three events in California. I mean, we got a whole bunch of stuff going on. It's a very crazy time. Now, before I forget, in this hour, I'm talking to Willie and Corey Robertson of the Duck Dynasty Robertsons. There's a film coming out this Thursday. Ladies and gentlemen, you need to support this film. These are the kind of films that I'm just telling you, if you don't like what's happening in the culture, which I would assume anybody with a half a brain understands that we're in trouble in American culture, in America, you need to support good things. And when somebody puts something like this out, you need to make an effort. It's the story of Phil Robertson. It's an unbelievable story. I'll be talking to them about it. But please make a note. This is going to be in theaters for, they give you like a week and then it goes away and then the garbage comes back. If it does well, they'll keep it in the theaters like Jesus Revolution, like Sound of Freedom. We need to do everything we can to support this kind of thing, especially when it's good, not just because it tells stories that we like, but it's actually artistically excellent and it tells stories we like. So it's called The Blind, obviously referring to a duck blind, at least in part, but The Blind, you can go to theblindmovie .com. It's important that you support this, that you tell your friends on social media.

"Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original, something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Mataxas. Hey there folks. Welcome. We have been told that tonight there's some kind of Republican debate. I'm not sure if that's a rumor, but it might be true. And in case it is, we thought maybe we should talk to somebody about it who can tell us what is going to happen. So we have back our friend Gavin Wax. He's with the New York Young Republicans. Gavin, welcome. Eric, it's great to be back and I'm looking forward to the vice presidential debate tonight. Oh, the vice presidential debate. Well, you know, I think Trump said it best that all these guys are looking for a job or trying to apply for a job. It's really just a job contest. No one actually on the stage is going to become president, certainly not this cycle. So we'll see how things unfold if that's how it's looking. It's funny and true, obviously. Many funny things are true. Many true things are funny, but you're right. Now, who tonight's debate? I'm planning not to watch it. What who has qualified, quote unquote, qualified to be in this debate? As far as I'm as I'm aware, it's nearly everyone from the original debate. I think maybe Asha Hutchinson has dropped off. You know, he was polling at, you know, point zero zero one. Now I think he's pointing at polling at point zero zero zero one. So, you know, that that decimal difference makes all the difference in getting on the stage. But you'll see the usual cast of characters. Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Tim Scott, Chris Christie, you know, those are the guys that are probably most will get most of the eyeballs, will get most of the attention. People will be seeing, you know, what they do, what they say, if they mess up, if they don't mess up. And then the others are basically just background actors, you know, just adding some ambiance to the stage, I assume. Yeah, it's really not ambiance, actually is the opposite of ambiance. But I know what you mean. Let me ask you, though, for sure. Chris Christie doesn't want to be Trump's vice president because he seems to be there only to express his peak and animus toward Donald Trump. He seems to to be there only to fulminate and to pummel the air with his horrible words against Donald Trump. Yeah, no, you're correct. He probably falls into the camp of people that is not that is not looking for a job, but it is on a on a revenge tour. Many people have accused President Trump of only running for a revenge tour type of campaign. But in fact, you look at individuals like Chris Christie, the only reason he's Donald J. Trump, President Trump, who he believes wronged him or slighted him after the whole presidential transition in 2016 or, you know, Christie didn't even do his job.

The Second Republican Debate Was Sort of Disastrous...

"Doesn't it feel like we're sort of just going through the motions now? And I know you're going to call me and yell at me and you're going to be mad at me because, oh, you're just a Trumper. You're a Trumpist. You're MAGA. You're just a delusional Trump supporter. Did you see that mess last night? Did you see those petulant, arguing folks on that stage and the horrible moderators and the terrible execution of one of the worst debates in television history? I am thinking about going back to before I was born with the Kennedy -Nixon debate, the famous debate that Nixon won on radio but Kennedy won on television because he was the one guy on that debate stage in 1960, I guess, who was smart enough to have somebody put some makeup on. And Nixon didn't look good, but he sounded great on radio. To people who just heard it, I mean, just think about the great historic debates of our time, the moments of clarity when somebody said, gosh, that's my guy, where the viewers said this was a moment. Well, the only moment last night was like Don Rickles over at Chuckles Comedy Club in Poughkeepsie, Chris Christie, making an absolute fool of himself. Can you imagine thinking that calling Donald Trump Donald Duck because he ducked the debate last night, can you imagine thinking that's a good idea?

I was just saying the news channel product last night was fun and it was great to hook up from the house and just join you in the immediate aftermath. We've slept on it now. Do you feel any differently? I may resent it even more now than I did last night. What a colossal waste of time. Not for Donald Trump. The winner was Donald Trump. That's just it. I mean, and you said it earlier. He's he's a genius once again in his decision to stay away. And I've been thinking a lot about DeSantis's decision to go after Trump on this issue. I would think, you know, Governor DeSantis, if he has any chance at all, has to win over Trump supporters. Correct. How do you win over Trump supporters by trashing the guy who made the brilliant decision to stay away from that train wreck last night? And it was a train wreck. How many times in your career, Mark, have you decided to do something that you just wish like heck you could take back? I mean, I don't know. Maybe. Oh, I could. I could just start with Monday. You know, I mean, if you're Dana Perino, you're going to spend the rest of your career asking yourself, why did I think the survivor question was going to go over? Well, so stupid. So stupid. And that couldn't have been couldn't have been her. That's got to be some staffer, even some executive or some consultant who said, hey, let's lighten the mood or do something kind of fun. And sometimes I'm actually OK with the moment that sort of humanizes them. I mean, like in a one on one debate or maybe when there's just two or three people left or to say, look, you guys are up there to sort of knock each other around. Tell me one really good, praiseworthy thing about each other, you know, about you, about your opponent. And that's kind of neat. And it sort of cuts. But this was so unbelievably stupid. And and there were a lot of cringe moments. I mean, poor Mike Pence. I've slept with the school teacher for 38 years. And everybody kind of groaned. And Chris Christie, oh, you're not Donald Trump. You're Donald Duck. Somebody wrote that for him and he thought it would go well. Or maybe it was his. Once again, I don't know whose idea it was, but it was terrible. And let's go back to programing decisions. The Univision lady, are you serious? I want to be as careful as I've ever been for anything. Univision, God bless them. Great.

"At least. Yeah. That's why it doesn't make sense. Last thing I know you got to go. Trevor Lawrence beats the Chargers. He goes to waffle House. Love it. Where would you go after a playoff victory? In what city? Like when I was in St. Louis, give me Philly. Oh, Philly. Philly, by the time I was in Philly, I'd probably go home, but I used to go to St. Louis billiards. There's like a little pool hall. So I probably go to buffalo billiards. I was in St. Louis street probably go over the river to the east side. I was young. The strip clubs were open till after two in the morning. So after pepper lounge closed, we go over there. So I'd say probably end up over in Illinois. So are you saying, because when I saw the Lawrence thing, I was obviously it's great that he's going to waffle House. But in my head, I'm thinking, I think now this is because I'm old. If I was a player, I'd want to go home. Yeah, for sure. So when I had kids, I was going to say, is age the fact that they're like, you know, 27 and under, you're going to go out after game 27 and over. Just the getting drunk, like the putting alcohol in your body in that state can wreck your body for the next two to three to four days. I mean, I can linger in the next week if you're too old. So I used to I did not party after games. So early in the career and then he's not a drinker. He's just sober walking around the waffle House. Yeah. So actually the issue at all. He did say that they called and rented it out ahead of time. So initially, people that he just walked in as a Ramsey. I'm just walking in. I'm not renting the waffles. We have slightly different profiles, but you know, you're not a first round quarterback. As soon as your quarterback. Last thing before you go, Brady Rogers, what are they going to do? Brady's leaving. Vegas seems like the safest bet because it's hard to expect certain teams to accommodate a guy who can't leave the pocket. I'm not knocking him and needs a strong run game in an offensive line. And then I think Aaron Rodgers, I don't know, this is just pure speculation. I think he's probably done this time. I don't know. Maybe the jets, they just hired, they're talking, did they hire Nathaniel Hackett or they're just talking about they enter interviewing Nathaniel Hackett. I would say this. I would love to see Aaron Rodgers on the jets for one reason, one reason only. Aaron Rodgers versus the animals here in the New York media. It would be really bad. I mean, he would be an idiot to come here because he wouldn't last here with that shaman guru. Bullshit. Yeah, that would be out. All right. I don't want to see Tom Brady. Play for the Las Vegas Raiders. You might have to. Something your reputation. He just played for the bucks. Yeah, but he won a Super Bowl with me. I know. I know. That offsets everything. It does. He's going to go be in a division with the chiefs. It's not going to be good for him. No. No, it's not, but the alternatives are not great either.

"Right, we've done like serious football analysis here. Let's get to some fun loose stuff here. First things first, you're a fellow degenerate like me. What are the wagers this weekend? What are we looking at? Gosh, I'm looking hard at the over in Dallas Dallas, San Francisco, 46, 46. I just feel like I feel like there's enough little issues in the secondary for the niners that we could see some points, I think that San Francisco can run the ball in Dallas, I think they can do enough with eye candy to slow rushers down. Yeah, I like the over there. I like San Francisco. I'm going to end up betting San Francisco. I'm going to sit here looking at it all week and then on Sunday at about hopefully I'm not chasing at 8 p.m.. I'm going to put out a big bet on the niners. So in that game, I like the over and I like the niners. I'm terrified of Jacksonville because my heart sent it too much. They covered the first game they played, but they scored 17 points, right? You know, I think they're going to have to score to keep up. And it's not like the last couple of weeks until LA was in off coverage and really just pissed it away in the second half that they've been able to get going. So it kind of worries me a little bit there thinking about Benton Jackson. I know my heart's going to skew it. I don't know if I liked you. I might stay away, eagles giants, I could see the Giants keeping this thing close. You know, I think the eagles win this game and I know I said that the first time they played and they got blown out the Giants. But 7 and a half points, a lot of points, you know, I do think there's enough issues in the secondary and the middle of the field. I mean, there's been a lot of changing parts for Philly. The run game is a concern with saquon Barkley, Daniel Jones, and then like Dexter Lawrence just played as good a game as I've seen an interior lineman playing the playoffs in recent memory, where he was just dominant closing that game out. Him and Leonard Williams so you got to have a plan for those two guys. That's going to be a tough ball game. And then Sunday, which one of my forgetting before well, Cincinnati buffalo, you ready? Cincinnati buffalo. I might like the Bengals there. I really might. The big key for them is they're going to have to run the ball. You know, they're going to have to run the ball. And I don't know. I don't know what the box counts are going to look like. So we'll see. It's kind of scary. We're on the same exact page, because I love the three underdogs and the niners. Yeah. I just like the points in all those games. I feel like when I looked at the action network app last night, I was like, okay, I'm with the public on almost everything.

"Candidate to have a really killer biopic made on or biopic. I have to say both every time. But Tiger is so interesting, you know, he broke into this really button up sport and he had the challenges that he had, and he still kind of made a mess of it sometimes. And he still found a way to get back up. And honestly, I do think he's really good for I was watching his practice round, and people are just lining the dam. He's really good for golf, even if they just kind of wheel him out there. And the casuals like me I'm now a moth to light and then I might be around Sunday. Like, I don't know if I'd have been around Sunday watching that. I'm not a big golf guy, if Tiger didn't let me know that the masters were on. Right. You know what I mean? I love that. I just get a kick out of when he does poorly. There's nobody says anything. It's the fucking Internet. People are just, they're waiting to argue over something and they'll argue over Tiger BM plus ten or something and try to rationalize why it's not that bad. He doesn't have to be the same guy he once was. He's still good for this sport. And I think, you know, it's okay to acknowledge that maybe some of these obstacles he's at least had a part in creating. There was a good Tiger dock. He wasn't, I don't think he was but HBO arming contained. They did one like three years ago that was really, really good if you never saw it. You should check it out. I would love to. I would love to because I just think we got a little taste of it. What was it? What was the last Doc that was last year that came out? Matt's here with, what was it? No, the Tiger Woods dog. We did a pot on it last year. That might have been the one I'm talking about. Yeah, that was really good, but tea claimed there was a lot of unauthorized stuff in there. Right. And the girl that somehow knew everything about him was only in one picture. The picture looked like a fan picture. Yeah, yeah, yeah. There was all the letters between him and his high school girlfriend. Right. You guys just had one. I don't think I don't think people have a shot to be normal in that situation. So I guess like I'm a little bit compassionate, you know, but yeah, I mean, he wasn't great this weekend, was he? No. But you would never know that. You would never know. You would never know.

"That's not fair. Let me think of the word to use. You've been moderately into the main cast. You're not a weekend week out watching every minute of it. You check it out did you. What was the. I'm curious because i thought the man casts would get a big rating interns. Let me rephrase that would have bigger ratings than they had in their previous episode week. Three because my logic was monday night. Game was so bad and so on watchable. Thanks to two inept quarterbacks that i thought people would go to the manning's for some entertainment. It didn't work out that way in week. Two and three they got one point. Eight one point nine million viewers and then they at one point six for this week now some people said maybe it was because they took three weeks off but my thing is the worst. The game is the better is for the manning's what did you. This week was a great episode. But marshawn lynch tom brady was off the charts. What did you watch any manning's this week. I did but i i do think that the layoff hurt them and i do think that the quality or lack thereof of the game hurt them. Because that's a match. You know me. I'm in a full block and get enough of it. That game was not even on my radar on monday night. So i had no interest in it and that i'm checking tweets as i'm watching. It goes watching the rangers hockey. And i see that brady was on so i flipped over right before half and i saw some of the clips of marshawn lynch than once. I put it on to watch brady from menon. Look i love those guys. It's been an entertaining. It's been a nice buildup. And i was into it after the initial hit in week. One those going to be a disaster. Then they started to settle in as the build up. I got more into it. I think the layoff her. And i think the fact that it was a crap game that had no really no interest that i took a lot away from it but i i do really enjoy watching those two. It was eye opening for me this week because it does show. You need a good game. You can't people not watching gino smith Into the manning's. I'll gino's i mean it's just it doesn't matter how good they are in to go on his two things number one. How are they gonna top. these guess. Tom brady and even more. Sean lynch don't it's you know these top notch. They've already exhausted the options through however many weeks. They've been mind keep in mind. They're only doing ten and they've done four already so they've six left. Yeah they've had brady. They've had lebron james right Also will say that. I'm not i mean brady was brave and some of the other guests have been great. I think some much with the guests. I'd rather just watch the manning's talk about the game. I want that's the whole point against occasionally they don't need one every quarter and on forever the other thing. Is this monday very funny that you just said that because i just had chris long on would you didn't hear but people listening burden he said the same exact thing about maybe less time with the guests more time with the manning's so it's points a one guest and again. I'm not saying that they've been because a lot of really good. But sometimes i wanna hear the too many of them. The other thing is this monday..

"I mean that's basically what it comes down to so then having kicked field goals i mean really. You can't have the two point conversion cotton contest another topic. I need you to help me with. Because you're a die. Hard knicks fan. I know you've been watching every game this season. Because you're a radio host of new yorker all pumped up because the knicks are good for a change. I casually pay attention. What is what is bing bong. What is this big bunk thing. I have no idea what's going on and now it's on the back page of the daily news. I don't know what it means. Oh did you. did you see this particular now. We're going to be selling like old men as usual. There's this ridiculous video that was circulating. it went viral. You just see what the knick fans after game like. Screaming and cursing. Yeah that exactly why. I don't go to sporting events anymore. It honestly makes me not want to go either. Knick fans are. They're not now. I love the knicks. I'm happy that they're doing well but that was so. I never even got through the full video. But either i swatch five seconds. And i'm like this is why i don't go to games. I shut it off agreed. I don't need to hear people yelling and screaming and cursing just not tomato. Find it funny. I didn't whatever but it went viral. It right so. I believe it comes from that. There was a funny clip in air of some fan talking trash. And i think he said bing bong and the reason why no about that is because after. The magic beat the knicks on sunday at the garden. The magic twitter account tweeted out a gif of that guy with the words being bought and the guy the that guy. So i believe that it comes from that. Now it's taken off a world of its own okay. So now i guess from that video. I had was on the back page of the daily news today. Yeah i gotta find out what this means. And i didn't bother googling it. Because i think i was like doing something else and i'm like how crazy video that got a toilet. You're okay another topic world series. Are you into this world series. I i got asked by one of the media. Oh my god. I can't believe. I forgot it so being but i was asked to do like a ratings prediction. I don't think the ratings are going to be good at all just because nationally. I don't think this matchup is going to entice people. Are you into this match up. Not really. I mean. I was in last night. I texted you before the game. You're going to bet. This baseball nets. Because i wanted to be into. It's the world series. This is it the final series final two games of the baseball year. I want to be into it. I'm going to root for the braves. Just because i don't want to see the astros win but that game last night if you put it this way if if you were going based off a game on going into the series that game did nothing for me even somebody who had the brains at had. The over three and a half. Thanks to you. i still was like. I'm just not interested. So i don't like the bowl pending. I think that loses its luster. There's no real yet dusty. Baker story line okay. The brave and the first time since ninety nine back in the world. There's no real juice..

"Because i think the goal would i saw the solid gold the mock game when i was on on the mock game a maybe they were just like kind of because it wasn't live. They felt like they could just sink into football man. That's fun when they do that. And and it can come for like a sue bird or like you know even myself like when all the sudden we go into some deep dive and coverage. And i'm like there was a cover to moment the other night and they nerd out for a minute and a half. That stuff is hard for the guest but it was really fun as a listener to hear them. Talk about the things that they're going to talk about in a film room like they get that stuff away. They could easily shrink the amount of time. They have a guest on the broadcast at all. I don't have any complaints. I had one complaint this monday when they did have brady on. They'll at the end. They're like oh we can't think of anything else to ask you. wait now. Wait a second the greatest quarterback of all time. You can have them on for five hours. And i think maybe they were trying to let them go or something. But i've known bedtime gentlemanly. He looks buried tired. Yeah before i let you go you mentioned you. Don't want love on twitter twitter. This and this and i called you twitter superstar. You can't play that game and act like you're so anti twitter when you have one of the best running twitter gags go being good mean that i have to like it twenty three hours a day. There's an hour a day. I like it when we're trolling hockey. And somebody when somebody tweeted me last night about. Hey the guy for the braves broke his leg. You're up like i was like in a dugout. And i forgot i was on deck. I was like fuck tred so let me let me give people background. And if people don't know what. Chris will do periodically is he will go on twitter and troll. Nhl fans about hockey players. Not being tough because hockey fans 'bout tougher than nhl player so game one of the world series tuesday night. Brace pitcher charlie morton gets hit with comebacker ends up. He has his leg. Broken doesn't know to time still throws a bunch of interests. So chris gets on twitter and says like the toughest players are. Nfl players in mlb. Player's fan baseball a- and nhl fans being so sensitive than decided to rip chris. Well the only time. I really liked twitter and then i don't fairly quickly is trolling twitter. So that tells you like how does that mean you know. I mean i used to like twitter when it was like a smaller room and then it got too big and then i did like i. I had to tweet about heavy stuff a lot. And so then i had a lot of people telling me what i should think telling me. I need to talk about this and you talk that almost like i worked for them and and there was just this period where i was like dude. I really wanna get off this motherfucker. But the only reason. I'm on it. Because i have a podcast and be honest like and people don't even really interact with the socials like that so i'm just like hey man so what. What am i doing here. It's to troll hockey. They're penn state lately. I've been trolling penn. State to they our on our into it..

What are the casino games that you hit a single table. I don't play casino games like just to. Its betting yay to me. At least like let me think. I have an angle. You know like i walk in there. I feel totally naked. I feel like everybody knows not only how to play better than me but also i. I could fuck up at the table. Easily all the etiquette. Like don't do this. Don't do that. Like i'm afraid of getting yelled at by the people at the tables like that's a really bad feeling. Well that i mean if you play roulette there's really none of that. It's you know blackjack you can get into trouble. I've actually gotten threatened that a eta crabs table. Because i play the. Don't pass. I play against the table and there have been some very heated moments. But if you play roulette you can't really do anything that'll piss anyone off. Except the way like people hover over when they throw the chips on the numbers. I don't know. I don't know what any of this means dude. I raised twenty one. Blackjack yeah yeah. Well the the there you could piss people off and as roulette bet blacker read well and the and the numbers and usually when i do if i feel like if i'm still drunk from the night before and it's my last morning in vegas on way out. I might just put all my winnings on like black or whatever And then and then leave. And usually i watch all burn down today or the other day actually got to walk out of the sports book with a good chunk of money so i felt good about that. So it's funny i.

I never ever played the in. My life never lease starkness. Lots and they're giving them the most. I mean it is. I mean there is an analogy there. There's a symbolism there about like flushing your money down the toilet like palermo lever when you put the coins in but it's interesting to me. The sports is it fifty four million with blackjack at ninety two and the slot. Three hundred and fifteen million people lost on on slotted nevada september first off. I'd love to be somebody who design slot games like just dress up creative ways to have people enjoy pissing their money away like an aquarium theme game like a you. An old west theme game like you just do a buck. Hunter theme slot game. Like i love that part of it What do you make of the the differences in how much money went to each vice. Well it i mean. Listen if i haven't been to a casino and a while because covert lab but any you know whenever you go through casino and every charrette. Those slot machines has taken and their appeals for hours doing. And how do they not realise pissing their money away. -cation they're bored. They don't have a big budget. They're just like.

Have on once a week but he would have no interest in fact just remember going his locker to three times a week. He was always talk and he knew it was like a pro because his dad had played the game he knew part of it is doing the media stuff and jim thomas of the post-dispatch and i would be talking to them and you just knew he was dying on the inside is the team was terrible. You go out you play hard you hope to do. Your best and chris long ended his. Nfl career was seventy sacks. There was a stretch in saint. Louis i think a four year stretch we had over forty double digits on average Which is really good when you're defensive end so he had some big moments here and i'm just glad he got to win at the end and i love the story about james hall who had some good numbers in saint louis came from detroit just got stuck on too bad teams in a row and they're out having beers and chris says them did. I do not want to end up losing all the time. I'm sure james ain't thanks to thanks. But chris always fun to visit with checkout his work at It's the green light studios. I was trying to get to the by the truck. Media is his brand but the green light studio podcast with. Chris longs where you can find all of his stuff and he really did. Do a lot of great stuff around saint louis and i don't think it's you get your teeth kicked in but to be out at a charity event on monday night or tuesday night on your day off.

"I hate that it happened. I don't hate the players on that team. I don't watch games. And mike. And i get why some fans do but the first couple of years they were there are a lot of my very close friends were there. And i even considered at one point in free agency l. a. and my big list of teams which you know if that happened it was going to be pretty weird for me and i'm kinda glad it didn't for obvious reasons though it's so funny i'm around is a fair amount in tori. Hold these guys like martin let it go. Let it go. I feel notes. I go. I don't have to let it go. You guys should you guys are rams for life. Yeah like those guys going over there. It's nice is it can peace and those guys and orlando there. And i hope fans now that that like to a man. I'm pretty sure. These guys are all like saint louis extremely special place. It's just when you're gone like especially if you're a one team guy like like some of these guys like isaac bruce you know where do you go you know. You can't just go to rams games. So i i feel for a them though i. It's totally fine. They should have the players they bring you back. Halftime the fans love. You absolutely will. We did the same thing here. I mean it would be cardinals. Rick smith npr guy. Was he gone when you were there. Manar member rick. Yeah he would come up into the press box. He'd like more than what you get going on at halftime but I got ta mack over here. I would have to google because he was in l. a. Ram alley louis. La rams yeah got a guy guy. Yeah yeah that's tough that's tough. La was on the other side of it. But you know it's just not quite the same the way it went down and i know there's a bitter taste in people's mouths and hopefully one day. There's a team. i hope. I'm around for a dude and then you went to at the end. You had to think after that like not only the mid the first one was itchy. Like are you kidding me after everything and then you twice. And there's there's no way. I could have told chris long in twenty fifteen that he's gonna end up with of your show got a couple of bharti's there's no way that no chance i was i i i'd given up. I really had given up the second time i got hurt. I was just like screw. This like to suggest i i was. I was thinking to myself like well. It's kind of karma like i've got. I was drafted high. You know. I had some really good years like you can't have it all you know. And and that's the reality of football. But no i got lucky i got. I picked the right teams. Man i was. I remember i was in. The hospital in waylon was Was born in. I had a lotta time just sitting around thinking of sitting at the hospital. I want to keep playing and later that week. I got a call from bill belichick. Actually my old d. line coach brennan daily. Who was in saint louis and the spags era had reached out to me like. Hey what are you doing here. You're retired like what the hell are you doing.

"So thankful that that is not just had phillies a soft landing to fi finish but also saint louis support through years where a lot of other cities they wouldn't like anymore you know just for being on those teams and i think saint louis fans will like. You're all right with me. 'cause you leave it out there and we always talk about cardinal fan love. Somebody on sir moves the runner over or you know. I think you're an example though. The football fan near getting what hard work is even. If the team doesn't win that somebody left it all on the field. I think they always knew that about you. And then the other element i think is. I don't know how many monday nights tuesdays. I was somewhere in. You guys had a fundraiser charity waiters or whatever and you and lord itis or there and it starts with you lost the game boy but i mean i think people watch that stuff you know and you come back to a blues game. Now they flip in love at. Nobody's like oh. They went three thirteen that one yet to like holy crap. It's chris long book. I just think it's so cool because it wasn't your fault team wasn't better and you know if i was matt ryan. Maybe the team was better. Like if we're being honest like so the only thing i ever feel bad about is like hey overdrafted by ten spots. Maybe i don't know. I mean like definitely overdrafted. But you know if you guys pick matt ryan. Maybe you went a little bit more. But i really do think things were so bad there. It didn't matter. Maybe things are a little bit better if you pick somebody else but that was the only part of it that i ever felt like you know a little bit responsible for you know as as a unit and then i felt really bad when i was hurt at the end you know what i mean like because we worked so hard like so hard to get over the hump we beat. We go to seattle martin. You remember this like we never beat seattle up there. I think i was like oh an eight and my goal owen. Seven going into my eighth year in seattle and ellen seven going into my eighth year in in san francisco which is incredible. And i remember coming off that injury which was bad luck and i got hurt again and now i'm coming back and i'm not supposed to play and i'm just struggling in the writing on the wall and were beating these teams and i'm my damn dude like i'm living in a hotel and clayton getting ready to get cut probably And and that sucked..

And they're they're feeding And he's under sheets of ice scuba diving and stuff like the guys he got attacked by an elephant. Seal guys total bad ass. Why would i want to talk about football. You know what i mean when i could talk to paul nicholson or i would love to talk to chris stapleton like he be one of my main like if i could get him on the show. That'd be awesome. We just did. Ken burns on the other day. So i wanna go everywhere man. Like that's what i'm interested in and the great thing about a podcast where you start out indie to me is like i don't i don't have any. I don't answer to anybody. Saying i didn't sign up for this. You know what i mean like. If you're a barstool sports fan and they start pushing my content. And i'm interviewing a violinist or some shit like you know. I'll get a bunch of complaints or hey chris they do mailbag too much. They do this. Like i don't care i don't really care care. I want the podcast to be successful. But what i'd rather have is like this this group of listeners that we've kind of eliminated people who aren't into xyz over time. It's selective itself selective and eventually if we actually get really successful there people that really like our stuff. And i can kind of do what i want. You know what i mean and yet every once in a while when you do wanna do football throwing your dad on just loves you guys rift. Because i'm sure there's price of famous football it would just kinda dicks and probably work like in fact in fact former ram keep blau used to tell me. His dad played to the berries. That me and my dad was astle he would tell me these stories. He's admit i'm not going to be like that at all and you know they're busy. They're successful. But but you guys seem to have this incredible relationship where he as your dad. Yeah i feel like you guys would like on a friday goats shoot pool or something. Just hang out you know we do a lot of hanging out you know like He lives five minutes from me so he's the best grandfather in the world and he's a great friend to me. I mean is great dad but he's also a great friend to me and so You know that's the way. That's the way i'd want it to be with me and my two kids well and luke.

"We've got great producers Ah co-host i've known for a long time and it's fun we're kind of figuring out and we've definitely done it on our own Because we've been indy for the most part until we got with blue are so you don't see yourself ever being a game analyst or in the studio you don't see the melissa and if if those things ever became like a zoom thing i could you know i've done some live streaming of games. I enjoy sitting there breaking down a game like when i'm at home talking about a game. I'm not saying this naively. I feel like i have. The knowledge may be able to do it. But there's a whole skill set that you have to learn beyond just hey. I know what's happening on that player. I can call out what's going to happen ahead of time like like tony romo at home on defense. That doesn't matter if you can't handle somebody in your ear if you can't handle all the moving parts if you can't handle knowing when to get in when to get out so you know i think sometimes players. We think all i could do that. And maybe we couldn't maybe we could. I just don't think i'm gonna find out. I really don't i do some fun stuff with amazon because it's zoom and it's thursday night and i like my weekends if that ever goes somewhere you never know but If i learned anything never say never. Probably not though. So i did. The rams preseason games for number years we would always have a former player. I was pretty tightly. Ricky parole in the first year they bring them in.

"Because it's the nfl season. I figured we'd get one of my favorite rams players to interview over the years. Chris long was always great. Unfortunately as most of you know the teams were not. And i guess that's putting it mildly. So we we finally catch up by the end of the interview. I realize i don't think we've talked about the nfl. I mean is terms of this year's season or who's good. who's gonna. Who do these going to win the super bowl. I don't know he didn't know either but we spent about thirty minutes. I think just talking a lot about his time in saint louis and since the rams left chris long has been back a ton. He was actually part of the original. Mls bid he going to put a little money into that before. The next wave came along with the taylor. Family for saint louis city sc but he comes to blues games and folks love them and it it is. It's kind of a weird phenomenon. Because the team's it's one thing for isaac bruce to come back super bowl champion and kurt warner marshall. Faulk but chris long back in saint louis still resonates and people love him even though he was here at a historically bad time but i think people knew that he was a standup guy gave it his all and he was just stuck on a really bad team. But what i thought was really interesting and talk about you. Know it stinks to the nfl. The number two overall pick. And you're like oh my god. I'm on this terrible franchise. But he said you know. Hey there's nothing i can do about it. you wonder. Is it my fault. And he said you know. I don't know maybe if they draft matt ryan instead of me. Maybe they're better. You know matt. Ryan was part of the draft class. Two thousand eight interesting you know. Just sort of internal thought for him to have even though. I think he realizes that we all do that. Team was not a quarterback away so when he got drafted the rams were two years in scotland as the head coach..

"You could just tell. He is like but it's like dude. I understand okay. So you're saying that phil jackson drip to play for coup coach. Because he's white. Okay let's say. I give you that you still have to go back into the game but you just. Can't you have team there and you have team. Eleven another teammates. You can't just sit on the bench like there's just no defense for that. And i think he knows that so he throws all this other shit at the wall and it's just like i don't know i think it comes out to play therapists here but it comes from his years of being second fiddle to michael and insecurity and he referenced it in an interview saying this is the one year that i was supposed to be the guy to get the final shot. You're giving it his frigging guy. Tony coup coach. Give me a break because it was in chop liver. I mean he wasn't good pl- pippins. Get what you're saying. Hey look kill the knicks enemy the shot that's where pippen and planing but the guy the play. The play jackson droop worked and cujo coach made the shot. So it's a point. You gotta just maybe be quiet for a second about it. You could understand to a certain extent why he might feel slighted or absolutely. Think it all these years. I've got to live in jordan chatto. He's outta here and now there's a place for tony drinking cuco what. I've been doing the hard work. So i can get that part of it. But at the end when he's talking about the cameras and who they leading to like. Oh yeah there's a documentary being filmed about michael jordan so but the truth is still the truth right like they made this. You know jordan. Paxton made the shot jordan game. And that's still what happened like with. The camera showed here payments zoa. I love the takes behind the scenes. Clearly there were other issues there that you know like i said the did paint him in a bad light what that did happen. So i mean to your point. Really what can you say about him. You know sitting out in that an issue. What's up subway jordan so I think pin look on a revenge story. Or he's taking everybody's getting in his wife not true the last thing. 'cause i gotta get this in because i don't care what's happening in sports. Nba final mba. Whatever conference finals baseball. Whatever else is going on the only story i care about right now. Is free britney right..
