Jim Hanson and Kash Patel Assess Kevin McCarthy's 'Backbone'

"Now looking at the house and Kevin McCarthy. And I think that's a fair statement you made that he understands what time it is in his caucus in the House. We've got essentially we've got, like you said, subpoenas and investigations and those kind of things. And potentially he should be open to impeaching someone like Mallorca. It's a waste of time to impeach Biden. We should leave him there. But what about the power of the purse? Has Kevin McCarthy got the backbone to shut down the government if that's what it takes? Well, I think that's the extreme measure and hopefully he does, but here's the incremental measure. We did it during Russia gate, right? When we issued subpoenas to get the DoJ and FBI to cooperate and provide us documents, they stonewalled us. They being rod Rosenstein and Chris wray, who still is head of the FBI. What do we do? We did this maneuver, which is only possible in the budgeting process of Congress. It's called fencing. And you literally put up a proverbial fence around pockets of money from the FBI DoJ because Congress has that authority. So you don't have to seize the government from operating. But the second we took their money, which we have to remind your audience is American taxpayer money. And we said, we're taking X millions and we're putting it on hold until you turn over the documents. You know what I got the next morning? Thousands of dollars. Three O twos. The corruption at that fisa court. The fisa applications themselves. The exposure of Christopher Steele and how he was a fraudulent confidential human source in the FBI knew that. So Paul Ryan only let us do this once a speaker. What I hope Kevin McCarthy lets the chairs do unilaterally without going to him begging for it is use this maneuver every single day.

Christopher Reeve Was the Perfect Superman

"Good how perfect a moment of casting was Christopher Reeve a Superman. To me what makes Superman Superman is the distinction between Clark Kent and Superman and Clark Kent to me is a kind of persona that this man puts on to seem fumbling to seem shy to seem nerdy so that people don't recognize that he's actually Superman. He can do his job as a reporter and then he can turn into Superman when he needs to. If you take away the nerdiness from Clark Kent, it's no longer Clark Kent. And I think that actually the great dean Cain was the one who kind of created the cool Clark Kent. And it's not his fault. I love dean Cain. Steve Kate Kane is great, but Lois and Clark is a different metier to use the phrase. Absolutely, but he was so dang cool in that show that they kind of change Clark Kent forever to be cool. And Clark Kent should not be cool. All the nerds in the world who want to look up to a superhero can no longer do so with Superman and I think the popularity of Superman waned after that show because Clark Kent was no longer nerdy. But Christopher Reeve was so beautifully able to both create a Superman that seemed very cool and strong and confident and a nerdy weak Clark Kent and just the way he tries to get into the elevator in that first film. A date from Lois and he's like, oh gosh, gee whiz. I tried to get the excuse me. Trying to get the elevator. I just, it's so perfect. He's so perfect.

Why Is 'Superman: The Movie' So Good? Chris Kohls Explains

"You mentioned, one of your favorite movies is not the favorite movie for Chris coles, which is Superman, the original movie, and that's that's why we're doing it right now. We're going to discuss the whole phenomena of Superman, why it's such an iconic character, what they did to it after Christopher Reeve left. But let's start at the beginning. I love this movie too. I mean, honestly, I've got it on my phone. I've got about a hundred movies on my phone. I've got about 20 downloaded that when I'm on a plane or whatever I watch, Star Wars Blade Runner is Superman the original movie is one of them. But tell us why you said it's got to be the next thing we review. Tell us why you love this film so much. Well, when I was a little boy, there are countless photos and even old 8 millimeter filmer. It might have been 16 millimeter. The old cameras. We have actual old 16 millimeter footage of me running around with some kind of blanket tie it around my neck. Pretending to be Superman. And I think every boy of around my age, late 70s, early 80s, was doing that. We were all obsessed with Superman. So as a child, you know, that was my favorite film. There were guys who loved the Star Wars franchise. I love the Star Wars franchise, but that was my favorite. My favorite at the time was Superman. And I think that it is to some degree an unappreciated masterpiece.

"The FBI director Christopher wray, who you know well, gave a press conference on Chinese espionage in the United States. And as I was finishing off justice corrupted last night, my notes. I thought to myself, I can not believe we have one FBI agent assigned to that. When the China lobby, which you write about, and the Chinese intelligence agencies are after us, they're bringing a new China case every day. We can not have anyone doing this. Look, it is the threats facing this country are massive. And the willingness of this administration, they view, they view the machinery of the federal government as just their own personal play things. We have seen whether it was FBI agents rating Mar-a-Lago and rating Donald Trump's homes never happened in the history of our country and so this administration or whether it is FBI agents storming the homes of pro life activists bursting in at the crack of dawn with machine guns and arresting activists in front of their kids screaming and crying, the willingness to simply say we can go after anyone we don't like that is really, really dangerous in what the book justice corrupted tries to do is explain precisely how this is happening and how dangerous it is,

This is one of the most powerful thought provoking and in some cases soul-crushing yet hopeful.

He's an entrepreneur. Founder and ceo of a company called roslyn dot ai. And they're on a mission to use advanced technology to make a difference for students and education. He's also a former afghan refugee living in the united states of america. Right now as we speak nor is fighting to get about twenty members of his family out of kabul afghanistan and the future for his loved ones and the thirty five million afghanis and the roughly four million living in kabul is terrifyingly uncertain. Our hope is that this dialogue will help humanize the plight of the very real people in afghanistan who are suffering right now who want out and that this very real dialogue will be shared emailed tweeted and posted broadly in the united states. And i know this is crazy. And i know. Many people won't but i'd ask you to consider specifically emailing this podcast. To your member of congress your senator and yes even president biden himself because no matter what you think about the. Us is withdrawal in afghanistan. There are now thirty. Five million afghanis who are experiencing the most horrifying change imaginable in their limes through no fault of their own. Now nortel's us. As i just mentioned there about four million people in kabul many of whom helped in some way or work directly for the us who are now facing a terrifying reality in the taliban now nor grew up in a poor civil war era afghanistan his catalyst for his own personal transformation with the gift of a computer that first computer empowered nor to ultimately become an entrepreneur. Today he's three times successful launch. Put her while he was still in afghanistan. He worked as a translator and a political adviser for the us military and then he emigrated to the united states. So look no matter what you think about what you know about. What's going on in afghanistan. I promise this conversation you're about to hear will change you and will open your eyes and while at times. This is a tough conversation. I want you to know it's also very uplifting nor is an extraordinary guy and pay special attention to his thoughts on why he thinks the us more endanger now than it was before the withdrawal and why he feels blessed to be in the united states. and he's also going to tell you in detail what life is really like. Under taliban rule this is christopher. Lock all your different. And we are on a mission to showcase the power of repeal dialogues. We believe that only through real conversation can we gain real understanding and make our world different place. That's exactly what you're about to hear now heyhoe let's go. It sure is great to see you. Great to see you as well. Christopher thank you for inviting me and it's an honor to meet you. It's an honor to meet you too Now if it's okay with you. I'd like to start by asking How's your family terrified. They're currently in afghanistan in kabul. They are two or three of my sisters came to get her in our house and my father's house and a bigger house and at the recently went back to their houses. Because everybody thought on my got a massacres gonna happen though some terrified. You can't trust the tourists. No matter what they say so the family does not trust the taleban. No how can they when they took over a In the south they massacred one hundred people. They're doing the same thing in puncher value right now. When there is no cameras they go after those who they believe have aided the infidels and the foreigners and they killed him now. they don't do that. Currently in kabul and the main reason is there are so there haven't been the internet yet so people can take pictures and that will cause them trouble with international community but but the practice has always been to come after their enemies can them and take revenge solo at no. You can't trust the tourists. We've been hearing in the media here. Noor that the taliban has said they are not going to do that. That they're going to sort of turn the page and there will be no Attack on afghanis who. Maybe were translators or in one way or another. Were supportive of the american effort. There i hear you saying is if they're no cellphones around. That's not true. That is correct. I hope they stick to that. I hope that is true. At least people can can stay in their homes go on with their lives. No matter how unhappy they are. But if you don't believe something and you're doing it for the cameras. It is temporary so the moment you get to a place where people are not watching. You're gonna do. What your god tells you. But your religion tells you and their religion tells them that everybody who worked with the us military With the government our enemies and they must be well so walk me through nor the family members. You currently have back home in afghanistan who you're trying to get out so you've got you've three sisters your father and who else actually. Fortunately my father is here. But i have two sisters there. An assistant in in law and my uncles are there as well. The my older sister was a professor and an english teacher and she had the secret at girls school hosting. That's cool teaching. That's cool for girls in our home secretly when the taliban were last around. But now you're in the last twenty years. She was teaching mathematics and also teaching english For girls and she was also at working for my company as an assessment expert. She tested a lot of linguists. Who worked in the working with military. So she's pretty recognized in that way her husband is also was also working with the us military so and the most terrifying thing is that they're associated would make an.

"America's cups nine ryder cups more than eighty grand slam tournaments You'll also have the eugene l. scott award given in memory of the late publisher of tennis week magazine and so with all of that under your belt and then writing sports biography. I wonder how as genre you translate the physical drama of tennis onto the page. You have to say. I've always thought that it was great to have a job that you can never quite Perfect or master and this is certainly one of them because you can always find a way to make another phone call or choose a better metaphor or a better description. So i think that is. The time is daunting and frustrating. But it's also inspiring because you can get better at this and so trying to get better in my mid fifties having done this for thirty plus years and all that all those road trips that you described takes awhile to sam. But i rogers case tennis can be challenging to write about. Because there's so much there's so many points and the points are relatively short and matches can last a long time. So i think you instead of getting readers blow by blow. You really have to synthesize and to find a way to capture the moment captured. The match is through Sending them up in terms of their style of play and the things that really come across from a visual standpoint. You're sitting there in the stands. And i've always tried to project that into my writing and i've tried to do that with this book as well. I really was conscious that people do not want to read about one hundred matches they wanted to read about. What made roger tick. What made nidal joke of its tick and where. They came from with their origin stories. That's what i tried to focus on and do you absolutely succeeded. Christopher clara thank you very much indeed. Thank you georgina.

You know everything ready even like certain advice or recommendations or things it on the scans before they giving you advice so that. This is just a few minutes of your time to do that. So last like twenty five to thirty percent awhile focus but the most exciting thing for me is what is happening in the near horizon which which is fine san fifteen years from now this thing which is guaranteeing developments in the biotech companies or in the academic lops. I think it's extremely exciting strokes formation all now so let's go to the near horizon. Is you talk about it in the book. The the one thing just before we go there as i was reading the second to last chapter where you talk about what you should do today to make sure that you can extend your life in the diagnostics in the stop smoking and listen to your mother and all that good shit yeah. It's called boneless chop dry sexually like the last chapter of the book and it's Finding enough it's Two times longer than any other chapter in this book. So i think it's good forty pages and his goal who wants to leave forever long to leave forever kind of thing and it's it is about your ten longevity choices so i would and it's always one third of the audience saying sergei This human avatars. Genetic engineering is great. What do i do now s. Exactly well this is. Actually i love this kind of wishes. Because i want people to change their lives to. They are tomorrow naughton. Ten years from now. Waiting on jimmy dean appeal. So that's why developed to stan longevity choices life during your annual checkups making sure. You're not smoking or avoiding about bath. Cabinet kollek best if longevity third is about died asked land-based as possible controlling the quality of your meat and fish and not taken sugar drinks.

These peace of mind is important of meditation sleep socialization purpose of life and actually like the name of this subtitle of Of this park goal. Think and grow young. I'm big fan of psychological aspects of aging. Is you know my mantra every morning. Every evening i want to leave two hundred years in twenty five years old buddy love that so so i look at that bonus chapter in the way i sort of synthesize it and i think he's essentially say it this way. If i remember is by doing these things now these good things don't smoke. Don't drink and all the stuff that you know. Your mother told you not to do what we're essentially doing is. We're trying to use proven strategies today to extend our health and our quality of health in time for the near horizon technologies science to meet us so that if we can if if we're good to ourselves then we'll get to this magic place where science is really kicking in and so you. You made me think. I'm trying to bridge this gap between where i am now and win the near term starts. Is that how you want us to think. It's yeah it is So jim mellon one of the investors in legiti a feel call it stay no longevity breach. Just stay there for five. Ten fifteen years enjoy align the ask alvidi. Smp as possible so then by the moment when near horizon technologists and pieces of science. I available to all of us. You can your body. Your mind is actually worth extending its resources. So that's important a war ray kurzweil sad it's about living long enough to leave forever essentially quote. Yeah now so So maybe take us to the near horizon What do we see in the next. You talk about the next roughly thirty years or so. If i'm remembering correctly that the near horizon will start to kick in. Yes so. I do think that the major changes will happen in the next ten to twenty years and one people so we invest the Seventy percent while font is actually in the near horizon. So this again. It breakthroughs in science and technology which gonna be available to us starring in ten years from now so when people ask me. What are the most exciting things happening there. I'm usually talking about three things. Think number thing number one is is about gene therapy. Genetic this is if you think about on reflection it the think about. What are the tools that we can use if we will be able to modify our genetical to influence three thousand longevity related joints and we already know all of all of this genetic composition genetic units which are responsible actually for aging process. Now body will that would be great We can actually redefine ourselves as humans. And that's why. I'm very excited. Like twenty years ago we spend while it was fifteen years and three billion dollars to sequence human genome right now. It's just two door. Send few hours this this amazing so all level of understanding the influence of that is totally transform and actually my belief in the feel of genetic engine therapy. The biggest obstacles in ten twenty years from now is not gonna be signs not going to be technology. It's gonna be regulation and ethics. Would we allow ourselves to modify our genetic code but having said that it's happening already so i'm sorry if i could interrupt you so so let me make sure i understand. I remember years ago in the late nineties being at ted when it was still here in monterey and seeing craig ventner and Was henry he was the guy who craig would get up and talk and guys like me would understand a third of what he said and then this guy would get up and say. Let me tell you what craig said. Anyway he wrote a book called the future catches you. I think his first name was in anyway.

"And you don't really need to read the back or any of that you sorta understand. At least you're in for a ride when it's called. Did i say you could go and so other than sort of the entertainment of it. What are the things you hope. People get when they read this novel. Well first and foremost really. I wrote this book to entertain people and that you know. I'm not gonna say anything different. I wrote it because it was entertaining for me to write. Had a ton of fun writing it and also to entertain people to have them. If i'm successful to have them gasp at the twists and whatever and so really fun and i think i did pull it off. I you know as we spoke about. I did delve into some deeper issues. Some pretty intense issues for teenagers and I think a really relevant and issues that we need to be talking about and considering But mostly mostly it's just fun so you you really said hey. I want to write a fun. But i did. I did. I had written valley of the moon which was time travel book which was very serious and beautiful. And you know slow and moving So i wanted to write something zippy after that and well and you did. The other thing that i find interesting is This is a whole new genre for you and you had sort of stake your claim in this sort of chick lit female Perspective yeah you. Don't call it check let on. I didn't mean that you're just telling you so yes it is. I know you dinner. But i'll just say that you know it's not cool to call it. Chick lit or even women's fiction is really demeaning. Because you're saying only women want to read this so it's very reductive. I would call it contemporary fiction or like pop fiction definitely not chocolate or women's fiction okay. I mean no schooling. Yeah just as appropriate but regardless This is very different. This is not a story about you. Know a woman dealing with her husband's van that's driving or nuts right now. It's not and it's also not anything. That's deeply personal memoir. Like i mean. This is a now say figment of your imagination. Draw from your life but it s these people are nobody. I know and so what happens. When you say to your publisher i wanna do something completely different than what i've done before Well i've done that many times. I seven bucks five different genres. And maybe it hasn't been the smartest thing because publishers like when you sort of stand your laying you build a brand. We all know what tom clancy is. Yes right right. And he says millions and millions of copies and he produces a book every year. You know but i couldn't do that. I just couldn't do that. Because i would get bored if i kept writing the same book over and over again and also i have taught myself so much by moving between genres about plot About like my gifts now. Seven books are much different than they were. When i began when i began. I was all about writing beautiful sentences. Lyricism much less concerned with plot but as i move through the bucks the real fun thing for me was was engineering. The story and plot Became one of the number one things and also I was terrible at dialogue. When i started out. Now i'm pretty good at it. And i love it. Snappy snappy snappy so for right now plot and dialogue are the things. I'm most excited about much less interior of the characters. And then what do you think about the decision to write in the third person versus the first person yes. I've done both first person. I think you have less freedom because you can. Only you only have that one person's perspective right which can be very limiting. It's good in that it's very gripping you it's so accessible intimacy intimacy. You are in that person's head for the entire book but it can be limiting so my past two bucks. Valley of the moon were From two different perspectives. A man and a woman. This is from four different perspectives. Two moms and their two teenage daughters. And so i can really show you the things that you need to be shown and also withhold the things that need to be withheld and so much more freedom. I love writing this way. I'll probably always right from different point of views so you don't think you'd go back to first person writing you. You like the freedom to be able to show the reader idea unless there's some incredible character that comes to me like hannibal lecter that is so charismatic and unique and different that you know that voice deserves to be the only voice in the buck. Yeah i remember the something that always speaks to me with first person. I get it about third person but as a kid. I read catcher in the rye when i was probably thirteen voice. Yeah and it was a transformative book for me. I was lost angry. Pissed off punk rock kid and all that stuff so there was a lot about that book. That made a difference for me. And maybe it's just because of that but that book being in the first person Just makes it so much more personal than i remember when brett east analysis I big i don't. His first book was first big book to break scott less than zero. Remember and if. I'm almost positive that was the first person book as well and i don't know there's something for me. I get about that. But i realized as a writer how how constraining that might be. It's really fun and but for me ultimately it was limiting. I wanted a wider scope. Lighter lands you know to tell the story and so how do you think or do you think your prior readers are gonna come along for this new genre switch. Well i hope they do. I think basically. I'm a good storyteller. And so that's well that's why they will come along for the good story whom out. Clearly i could talk for hours and hours and hours to chris. You're so charming interesting. Oh thank you love. And this is gonna sound corny. Or whatever. But i i just i really admire what you're doing and what you've done. There's so much sort of quick hit and fast and get big fast and go viral and all that and you just strike me as somebody who has really worked on her craft for decades and you are a craft person right. I mean you. Seven books sounds like a lot to you to some people. It does how i mean. You've been a writer your whole professional life. Yeah we could. You could argue that. It's not a lot. I guess some people would argue. It's a lot but the reason. It probably didn't feel a lot to us because you know what's in this book. I hold in my hands. I mean this is. You went to work on this book. You didn't turn this thing out now. I had to teach myself how to write a thriller. Which i i love that challenge. Teach myself how to write a time. Travel teach myself how to write a memoir. I mean there has to be. I have to have that with each book. That i'm learning something new and and do you think you're taking your readers along for the learning journey so to speak. Yeah i think so. And as i said i just you know it's just good storytelling. That is my goal. Good storytelling so hopefully whatever the genre. They'll come along for the ride awesome. Is there anything else. You'd like to talk about melanie now. This was amazing. Thank you chris. Thank you and best of luck with this book long. I have no doubt it's going to be a a smashing success. Thanks thanks bill. Well there she is my friend. The legendary melanie gideon.

"If you don't want to feel that way. Stop thinking that way right and it's interesting. I have some of the younger women entrepreneurs. I've met in the last little bit. They do feel different. They're not worried about that. They're very strong. They're very clear and they don't seem to be concerned about coming in some negative way that Women some women have historically felt that if they're overconfident they're they're they're gonna be bitchy and all that i've even had people tell me hey don't have too many women on the podcast because people don't like listen to female voices what People have said that to me. You have too many women on your podcast and like go. Fuck yourself stop listening to the podcast i mean. Do you think that these younger women are the who are appearing to be more confident. Is that like the agenda zero kind of new generational thing or yeah Millennial millennials are now well into their thirties right and so Not so much the generation behind that but the the entrepreneurial women who are you know somewhere between twenty eight and in early forties I'm noticing feel a little bit different. They don't seem to be. It's just my sentiment so it's not based on data and one in particular. I talked to recently. And i just sort of said to her. I said hey you know you're really a very powerful moon and this is a hot topic and we're not that far past the whole metoo discussion and and i just asked her how she thinks about it and she said she really doesn't. She just is herself and this is how she is and this is why. She's an entrepreneur and she said i don't really think about it that much and if you don't like it you can kind of go f yourself right. Yeah i mean well good for her. I think another another thing that does Play into a how person is wired is in part their social circle there people who influenced them and how they were raised and i will say you know i've talked to you before about my parents. My parents are german emigrants. My father came to this. Country was sixty dollars in his pocket and my mother came six months later. You know with maybe five dollars in her pocket and my parents told me like you have to control your own destiny. There's no free lunch in life. And there they were chemists. They're scientists so they didn't they never believed in lock. You have to make your own luck and so every it's kind of like okay. We're just going to go balls out them like balls to the wall psych. If the if you're gonna pitch this company and you think they might be your first client you better damn well how everything buttoned up and you want you want to go. One hundred fifty percent. There is no ninety five percent right and do with feeling and conviction. And that's how. I coached all of my clients when they were giving presentations to press. It's how i wanted my employees to present themselves to our prospects. And i guess you embody that sort of as a measure of confidence right in your physical presence. Yup now clearly. I could talk to you forever and actually that wouldn't be. That wouldn't be a bad idea as love talking with you thank you. Are there any other things you'd want to touch on before we wrap up. Yeah i mean. I'm i'm honored that you read my book. I've loved our time together. I think what i want to convey is a message that when you fake it. You're just sabotaging yourself do the hard work. It takes a long time. Play the long game play at the right way and decide what sort of example you wanna leave for the rest of the world like for your children and for your employees and what example you know you wanna set and destiny i think is ultimately what people will say about you once you're gone right and the journey is all the little detail fills in the middle so don don fake it like. It's not worth it. Be sabrina horn. Just be the real deal. Be yourself either real. Deal be real. Yeah well sabrina. I can't thank you enough for this book.

"You have to be a leader. You have to be a doer. You have to be a decision maker or whatever the thing you have to do is but i'm curious as to how do you really feel about it. Just go did. I just go off there. It's okay it's i in a way i kinda feel like you do It's a very hot topic right now. And it imposter syndrome affects both men and women but in particular women and so. Let's start off with like okay. The basic definition of imposter syndrome. Is this really terrible. Feeling that you're undeserving. Somehow of your success and that you'll be exposed for a fraud that your success is due to good luck or good timing or because somebody did all the work for you. And there's different ways that can manifest itself right. I i had it and i didn't. I did not write about this in the book. I only maybe alluded to it. But it was a big lesson for me and i'll share the story if that's okay. Sabrina fall down any zebra. Whole wanna go Okay thank you. So when i sold the horn group to fend partners right after twenty years of being my own boss. I never had a boss and all of a sudden a friday. I was the ceo horn group and monday morning. I was the managing partner of global technology. Practice for a hundred million dollar company called finn partners and all of these people almost anointed me with this sort of quasi celebrity status. And they're were all these people on my email and they expected great things from me as they should but i thought to myself. Oh my god. I'm not what these people think i am. I just ran my little company for twenty four years. And i worked with these companies and i know and i know really well but i don't know what they're thinking about me. And what are their expectations of me and there was one day all never forget where i was in a meeting. With some people from accenture it was a new business pitch and there were people from my old team. And then people from finn partners around me who. I had just met that morning in. Who sort of looking the up and down like okay. Give us the show. Sabrina you know and the wizards here that we're in hand show yeah and christopher. I struggled introducing myself. I struggled telling someone else's story it wasn't my store anymore. Was there a story. I struggled even saying what my title was. And i didn't know what imposter syndrome wise but i'm pretty sure that was it. And it sucked. Because i felt like i was on another planet. I wasn't comfortable in my own clothes. I wasn't being successful. And i just wanted to push the reset button and and not that. The merger was very successful in everything. Worked out but it really messed with my head and so to stop feeling like an impostor the first step is to stop thinking like one as you said and you know what you have to..

We did this and we did. And i hear it like ten times a day when i was at big. Hana we did it this way when i n it's like you know what you're not there anymore. You're here with me now. And what worked there doesn't mean is necessarily going to work here so you have to take like experience matters and certainly expertise but you're so right. Christopher like what got you to to where you are today isn't gonna get you to where you wanna go. You have to take the best of all of that and leave the rest behind. Yes now one of the things that sort of get surfaced in your new book is something. We hear a lot about today. And it's something that Pisses me off on a pretty regular basis. And that's this thing called imposter syndrome. And everybody's like oh my imposters to these blogs and all these things hunting and a lot of ways your book is hey you know deal with imposter syndrome. Don't be a fucking and yes. I read all stuff. And i wanted to say. Hey listen doping. Impostor do the homework. Do the research get prepared train you know. Look at what athletes do look at. What the military does right. No you're going to win when you get on the playing field and so when it comes you might feel imposter syndrome in the beginning of something say oh somebody wants to give me a big jobber promotion. Maybe i don't feel ready. I relate to all that. We've all had experiences along those lines. And i understand there. Are things that you can do to get ourselves ready to take an exponential leap in our career and those are important things however my belief is if you feel like an impostor then do what you need to do to make sure. You're not an impostor before you get on the ice where the game's going to go down and you have to be not an impostor you have to be an expert..

And most importantly i i love my life the way it is now i get to make a difference at scale through podcasting and writing. I do still a smidge not very much. But in very certain certain circumstances i'll do some advising and i still enjoy that Very much particularly under the right circumstances but no. I don't have any desire to do it. I don't frankly. I don't wanna work eighty hours a week. And that's what those jobs are. Yeah and You know. I'm at a different stage of my life like you are. I'm in the throw down the rope. Stage not continue to collect a merit badges stage. That's a good way of putting it. Well i mean. I've said this to you back then. And i said achieve the other day when we caught up briefly.

You never never stop doing that. I don't plan to I love the conversations too much. I really do. You know the people that i get to talk to our incredible and i learned a ton and as you know i'm dyslexic and so reading as a big commitment but as you can see by the posted that's in your book you know i read the books you know because the only people i have honor people who i think are doing great work who i'm curious about and therefore you know we have a lot of authors on i read. I don't know thirty forty bucks a year and that's a big commitment is a dyslexic. But i get to learn from you. And i get to learn from stanley mcchrystal and i get to learn from jim campbell.

"Honestly it's about fifty fifty You know i. I grew up in a church on on the south side of chicago. That really influenced a lot of my faith formation said about the chicago The bypass j. Meeks who's the founder of the church. And the you know growing up as a teenager. You've mentioned that church Are we will always kind of radical in that sense that we we went to. Where trouble was we went to where hurting people were. We would prey on crack houses There was a time when there was a a a particular strip club in the city. The head underage girls dancing and we went and prayed. Shut it down. so You know we always kind of had that sort of age. And i think i've carried that into my adult life. That part of what. I believe it needs to be amana man. Man face is that we don't Just run it turn our head. When trouble But we go to the scriptures Call us to be softened light. And i believe part of that is showing up where light is needed. So it helps. I'm not a little guy so we know that also helps but Yeah i think if you the the lord gave you those shoulders for reason. I'm guessing right absolutely and i'm glad about it and i'm doing my best to be in the gym to keep them and one of my favorite stories and of course it's not in the bible but it's a story that's near and dear to my heart is of course the story of saint christopher and how he chose to serve the lord in his own way but he chose to use his His size and his strength as a warrior to serve god and so i guess there's many ways we can all serve absolutely absolutely. I mean you know. I think one of the part of the beauty of that is there are so many different needs for serving and is so many different avenues that we can serve through. You know there's this whole thing called the seven mountains. Of course education is media. It's government it's faith and so there's different areas that we can all serve badian The thing just wherever you are served the best you can there. yes now. i think there's this sort of maybe undeclared paradigm of god where people sort of act as though god is sort of santa claus in the sky where we could sort of pray to god to win the lottery or you know one of my favorites as as a fight fan is you know fighters will often pray to god for for support in the fight like god cares that they were not this other fighter when god does not answer these prayers. We sort of get mad at the santa claus in the sky and so I've often found this to be a strange paradigm but because of this paradigm when things go badly in our lives or badly in our society we often look to god and say well you know. How can you do this to me. If you love me. If you love humanity has do this to us how can we have this horrible virus or how can we have this political strife. or how can we have this horrible tragedy in syria and on and on with the pain and suffering in the world and so when people come to you and say you know. I feel betrayed by god. Because he's letting all these bad things happen This is a conversation that you have. Yes oh yeah. I mean you know i i even going back to the seminary day jr And it's funny because till younger especially preachers. Starting out in ministry seminaries only part of the preparation. There's a whole education that you get. This is real time like mike. Tyson says everybody's got to pushing them out..
