Never could determine that the source of these noises couldn't find anything amiss on the land never saw anything they get tribute to noises to a journalist later speculated that the noises could be chalked up to simply the slipping of one layer of rocks over another at some place along the Utah Fault.

Side of the ranch do shows up out of nowhere asked the family for a glass of water he shows up with no horse no means of transportation nothing. Shows up in the middle of the high desert alone asking for a glass of water making his odd visit weirder.

Some, hard core ufo theorists have come to refer to this guy as the traveler as in the time traveller apparently had a lengthy conversation with the family and then just kind of walked off and disappeared forever.

Yeah probably maybe. whatever you dealing with strange strange encounter very strange encounter.

Nineteen thirty three Kenneth Anita's Myers the son and daughter-in-law of Skin Walker Ranch homesteaders, John and Emma by trailer move onto the east side of the property. The locks descendants still live on the west side. Even though up until this point in the ranch's history, there have been no recorded sightings of supernatural creatures aliens other than that Weird Shiny Blue Shirt guy. Who in the area starting to think that something odd is going on skin? Walker ranch. A group of US live nearby allegedly established a betting circle where participants put money on the link to time the Myers would stay on the ranch before being driven away by what we don't know. A decade later, we have our first documented UFO citing here we go. Two miles from skin Walker ranch, a large silver globe like object to seen flying over Fort. Duchenne in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, four, one of the witnesses told the following story of the encounter I've added some music. About music to give it a little ambiance hopefully make it more entertaining. Can Add some music to all of the longer firsthand account past today I hope it helps it adds to the storytelling. I was in my thirties. My mother told me a story. One day. We were having our little picnic lunch couldn't have been much of a lunch. There was a heavy wartime food rationing effect. A Shiny object flew in from the West. Made a circuit around the little meadow. Howard for a few minutes. Away to the East I. was. surprised. As to why she'd never told me this story before she said, she never considered the incident of much significance. I slapped her in the face and the Alabama woman what do you mean not much significance your saw ufo it doesn't get much more significant. The net does it as. Sorry. This slap stuff with Cummings Bullshit as that was not I was not mine back back to my story now. She could have been right but I asked her to draw the object for memory drew a circuit a globe. That's it circuit a global. Asked if the object did anything but fly through the air. Tried to explain that are made some kind of jittery or shaky movements. She really couldn't describe what the movement was like. The object could have been carried by the wind what she did remember being particularly windy that day. So it circled little meadow. then. flew away. Cincinnati were several years before Kenneth Arnold famous nineteen, forty, seven sightings of nine shiny objects. Fluid tandems give like sauces flew through the sky amount rain here in Washington state. Years. Later, I met a man, a police officer who had worked for the shame. He told me of an incident where he and his family were laying out on the lawn when evening families do drinking coffee and soft drinks when a shiny object over food their house stopped and shot straight up. Could identify what the object was. But it was enough to send the families scurrying until the house. The officer said that he and his family didn't go out in the evening like that quite a while. After mom told me the story of the meadow Saudi, gave it. Some thoughts at least two possibilities came to me. As I said. Kenneth Arnold hadn't yet had his side experience, but I learned even in those pre internet days at the four Shane area was Kinda notorious for sightings. Let kind. Or there was another possibility. During the war Japanese. It made and released a number of hydrogen filled balloons carrying incendiary devices from the Japanese homelands. Home Islands open the balloons would make their way west be the jet stream I guess East gives me hush. Directions. Forget sometimes land the hoped they would land in America's forest lands and start forest wildfires and maybe kill somebody. Whether the Shiny object my mother saw was a flying saucer google bomb something else I can say..
"christopher locke" Discussed on The Storytellers Network
"Just amazing. Dialogue episodes with legendary people and it's always interesting and just fund listener. Christopher riff with some great folks. So listen those podcasts. Christopher is definitely a storyteller even though you'll hear him say he's not I D- I argue with that. I debate that he is so So there you go. Christopher Locke had today on the show I can't wait for you to hear his stories. Christopher welcomed the storytellers network. I've been waiting for this for two and a half years Not because of you just because of me. I guess I don't know but I'm so excited to have you on the show man. Welcome sir well thank you and if I in any way contributed to the weight Unintentionally please no. It was not my intention. I WANNA come on any time. He asked me to go. I think you're awesome. I appreciate it. No we I had you on The business podcast that I help. Run for way finding growth Talk several times of other stuff. It was never you. I just it just never kind of like the seasons that I've had never really made sense to me and finally something is like what the hell that I'm on season ten. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa take a hiatus after this episode To write my book I gotTa Have Christopher on before I do anything. So it's all me So at that I'll said you know. Look you're you're an author. You're hugh you've been to see him over. Multiple Tech companies been marketing forever. As we are just talking you tell stories but do you think of yourself as a storyteller No I think I think that would be. I mean I don't think about myself in that context as kind of an identity but I am passionate about storytelling And it's something. I've been training myself in for decades and So I don't think about it much but in the context to category design. There's this thing we call a p O via point of view and it's a story. It's a certain kind of story. It's successful category designers. It has certain architecture but luckily on your right a couple of books and you Blab as much as I do on the Internet. You GotTa be a telephone story right right right but you know. I I know you well enough to that. I imagine you're sitting around. I listened enough of your shows like just sitting around drinking Scotch Bullshit was somebody is storytelling of you. Know but then also there's this whole professional side of like you said the the Pov when it comes to to category design you've gotTa have your point of view and tell it. Well how do you like? How do you train yourself? You say between yourself for decades. How do you do that so I think I think there's a practice thing that's really important? I learned to be a storyteller verbally long before became a storyteller A written storyteller As you know I'm dyslexic and I have a bunch of these other things that we lovingly today call learning differences. Discount Glee and ADHD. Zaid as you know I roll them all together during college just perfect and so writing and reading way. Hard for me It took a long time for me to develop any kind of level of writing it's passable but verbally I think like a lot of dyslexic. But whatever for whatever reason verbally I've always been stronger and so training myself to tell US story at the right cadence and with the right level of detail but not too much detail and with enough understanding human dynamics enough to know that there's different communication styles and so for the people who are analytical by way of example. If you go too far too story without saying something that they feel a substantive or fact-based or referencing something smart or detail oriented or reliable or something that a more analytical person would rest on of you go too long without doing that You probably lose them same time. There's and then there's people who are very relationship oriented. And if you go too long without doing something demonstrate some level of humanity or empathy or interest in others. You'RE GONNA lose them. Yeah that's me under present. Yeah and and then there's some people who are very to the point so if you're like if you don't say you know those people get super comfy and say listen. There's three things Dan we want to talk about today. Bam Bam Bam and you sort of are getting to the point if somebody is tuned to that kind of communication and you don't ramble too much which I'm guilty of you can lose them and so and then and then there's a lot of us who are attracted to more sort of sis boom Bah you know and so they want you want it to sound exciting and interesting and all that because the people who are more attracted to shiny objects of which I'm one you know if you drone on like this and you talk about well then there was a study that said that thirty seven point. Six people said that They're really prefer to listen to a podcast. You know you're gone right so anyway. My point is having an appreciation for the fact that different people communicate in different ways and trying to speak to people in a way that is on one hand. Authentic for you. I'm not I don't try to play some character. I'm not some some made up. Bullshit this is this. I'm just myself I can't stand that that you know those people who play characters on TV or in their podcasts or whatever I had an experience with that recently into good story. I can tell you on your trying to mix a lot of things. My point is you're trying to be on one hand authentically yourself but at the same time tuned into the fact that different people communicate in different ways and different kinds of story elements Appeal to different people. And so you want to be authentically. You're not manipulative. Replace him stupid character but the same time. Try to learn how to communicate no way that a broader set of people might find compelling what? I find interesting is you talked about all of that those elements and I haven't heard said that way before instead of saying well you have to have a hero then. I had to have a conflict. Then you had to have a guide you got you got your five man band where you got the hero in the heart like none of those elements commended Conversation at this point. You're talking about how people listen in what speaks to them. That's so important I think to think about especially in today's world where storytelling has become this like big buzzword where everybody wants to tell a story about their company and it's like well but you have to tell a story in that sense or do you're talking about and just communicate better right. Yeah I don't know if I'd say better A trigger word for me. Dan O triggered. What would you say? I think I think we're living in an interesting time and I've always been fascinated by dichotomy so I think on one hand were swimming in Kardashian. Filled world of bullshit. And it's astonishing and it happens in the news media We've gotten to a place with the media in this country where the belief is you have to take some radical position all the time and so it's sort of a rather than any kind of discussion about anything substantive it's a bunch of extreme extremists yelling at each other and and it's fucking stupid and I think it's an authentic and I think when businesses do that so if you're going to do stunt shit like that a lot of people do it but there's an inauthentic to it so but there's a lot of it that's being successful whether it's in the political world or in in the business marketing world or or what have you however I think things are real things that feel like they are have have enough head and heart in them You know one of the things. Eddie Union I my dear friend. Eddie Union collaborator. We just wrote a story for. Hp are About a set of things you could think about doing to Improve your cash flow and crew Improve Your Business in this in this time of crisis and of the things that we wrote about in that piece there was two that seemed to really resonate with people. Dan and the two really stood out and we got a lot of feedback on these ideas of being thoughtfully aggressive in the context of this crisis. Around what you can do to save money save costs preserved cash etc and also thoughtfully aggressive about new opportunities for your business because and. I know it's hard to see particularly I mean I. I've talked to entrepreneurs whose businesses shut down because they can't operate right and I could tell a fantastic story if you want to hear but That is beyond inspiring. So look I I understand what it's like for some people to be going through a situation where Everything shut down. But even in that case there might be possibility and so That's sort of in their sits this idea of. How do we thoughtfully aggressive and sitting next to thoughtfully aggressive? Is this other idea Called radical generosity and one of the things Eddie and I had been working on. We're working on a book together and we'd already written this stuff before the crisis the books ought not out yet but we we sort of blown this idea out pretty well. I think that companies that design and dominate categories. Today are often more more often. We're starting this pattern radical generosity and it comes in multiple ways they give away a bunch of stuff You know the Free Mia model. The software industry right where you know is a great example right you can use zoom for free with some limitations but so but that's been around for a while and then there's a lot of companies today that say they have a double bottom line right they have a business profit growth.

"Stoked stoked to be here with all of you thank you so much. Christopher Locke Ed and with me is my dear friend Carrie Palin morning morning and I have had the great pleasure of working with Kerry and the team spunk for a while. Now and spunk as you may know is it. Twenty Billion Dollar Market Cap Company that is the category Queen in big big data and recently spunk. Just launch a whole new category a whole new point of view and a whole new brand so we thought it we be cool to go inside what it takes for a CMO drive massive change that not only read. It defines an entire market ARCA. Category destroys the competition. All at the same time. You're ready to go ready. I already you guys have some some energy this morning. Yo hyper growth. Yeah I got out of F one twenty-one planning with all of east off so you can feel really happy happy for me that I'm here because this is the highlight of my day. So we got out of this spreadsheet meeting so Carrie Carrie lets you join spunk win. February twenty nineteen so not yet a year ago and the company had already made a commitment Doug Merit and Susan Saint Leger the CEO and president of the company to launch a big new category. And so you came in as that decision was made and they said alright lead us forward. Yeah no look. I wasn't looking to leave but I had signed on at seven grid to be their. CMO after box and six weeks in announced their intent to carson grid slot called and said hey is a very persistent and awesome recruiter and he said you need to talk to me about this. Spunk thing thing and so conversations with Doug Merit our CEO ensued and it was really interesting because we kept T- you know as marketers. We have so many functions within marketing and and each of us have our lane that we sort of grew up in my lane is actually demand Gen and Doug kept saying. Hey We want to rebrand the company. Hey we want to launch this new category. How much experience you have up to that and I said well we did? A new category creation at box but Adele really didn't wear a mature markets. Del For sixteen years. And I said we didn't do a lot of branding by the time I left it at the corporate level so I would need a really strong brand team around me. I know what great looks like. But Gosh that's not my that's not my lane and he was like. Oh Yeah we're good. We gotta work on demand Gen two so this. This is great. You're a fitness. I kept asking. Are you sure. And he was like no. I'm sure and then I got there and they're like and so now day one. Let's go and it's been crazy town. You Bet Fun but not with I mean not for the faint of heart. It's been as you know because you've been involved in a lot of it a really intense here and be you give tents you came in under not only imagine coming in as a new. CMO giant public company making this huge commitment to lead the industry forward and being the leader to do that. You came in under some pretty extraordinary personal circumstances. Yeah so three days into my job at spunk. I got a call from Austin Texas. I'm from Austin and My Dad was having a heart issue and so I was supposed to head to SCO ourselves kick off the next week and my boss season St Leger. He's our president And she's amazing. said no no go home. It'd be through died during his heart surgery. My Dad was very healthy but long story. Short is lost my dad that next week and so I was three days into my job and and my dad was also my best friend so it just totally debilitated me as a human for a few months and spunk stuck with me. They treated me like I had been there twenty years versus three days and it just made all the difference so I really wasn't at full capacity again so probably four months after that and we're in the thick of this rebranding so it was it. It was crazier than I ever anticipated. But now that we're through that I know that it was absolutely the right place for me to be well and you and I've talked a lot about sort of life life in business And of course I know Doug and Susan well what did you learn about. Doug and Susan went all out went down particularly when they were hoping you would come in and be jamming the throttle. Yeah no it's Look they're huge expectations especially in the C. Suite no matter what role you're in but CMO's in particular have the shortest tenure in the C.. Suite you you gotta hit the ground running and hit it hard and Day gave me the time in latitude to heal as a human But also Kinda backed me up on big decisions when I said Oh I don't feel steady yet and you know look. I was forty seven years with the greatest add on the planet but then all of a sudden I had to find my true north again and it just wasn't easy So they where I I say this all the time when I coach and mentor. That who you work for matters and it is the number one thing in career happiness for me. I'd sweep the floors for the right people and I can tell you I wouldn't take a CEO role for the wrong people. And so you need to make sure your values aligned with the humans you work for and luckily during the diligence of whether I was right for spunk. Right for me. We did a lot of that. Human digging in on are we good match for each other and our values aligned as S. humans and their values showed up huge when I needed it. So take us inside what. It's really like to design a new category. A new brand a new point of view and get that launched in plus or minus but six or eight six or eight months or so. Yeah no it was not and the reality is spunk. Spunk is probably the only two billion in revenue software company that most of the world doesn't know about and we are growing at forty percent plus year every year and they're only seven seven software companies that I've ever done that and yet most of the world has no idea what spun does and we're doing some amazing things. Can we tell them what the problem was called inside the company. I mean it can. It was called W T.F. Spunk seed Google spunk. And literally all the Google questions would basically say what is blank they do. What is your bar? That's right like who. WHO The hell is this company and the reality is we have a great product that is incredibly viral and actually super essential to organizations whether smaller large because we are data security data analytics data insights at real time? which as we we all know is so hugely important? I mean we've talked about this crispin. Data represents the greatest opportunity for humanity. And also probably the greatest threat at the same time and so we wanted to bring the stories to life which is what this one one of these videos that we launched at our brand launch about the breadth of the use cases. This isn't just about data security and it ops it's about people people who are solving and getting ahead of human trafficking rings globally with spunk as the base platform to do that in mind the dark web and all sorts of different data sources in real time hi and we just in spunk ventures just invested in this amazing company called zone haven which is here in the bay area but they are putting together its technology where they can figure out that firefighters sorry that while heart fires have started thirty to forty five minutes earlier than normal so they can alert firefighters get on it so that doesn't spread and then they can track the fire burn patterns so they can know how to get people out safely is crazy the the the complexity of things that you can solve with data and we wanted to bring that to the world and so we launched this notion of data to everything and that's bring data to every question every decision and every action to create meaningful outcomes and that was the elevated conversation wanted to bring the mark thank God it was log so data to everything I mean it sounds very new it doesn't sound like any other category out Thera doesn't sound like carbonation software or some other kind of technical nose picking thing and so how did you get the executive live team and the board to buy into data to everything and then we could talk about the new brand and the colors and that kind of stuff to it was a process I would say that fifty fifty percent of our staff weren't on board when we first launched this notion of you ever noticed that everybody in the company's marketing expert especially when you WanNa can I change colors or review the brand or never mind what the company does helpers we had a lot of helpers and you're you're in to to give Chris a lot of credit he was involved before I ever showed up spunk consulting are east since Oh a lot of credit goes to him but I will say that it was you know look spunk is we are very proud of our culture. We're very proud of our history. There's something we call sponginess endeavor to change the colors of black and green to pink and orange lightly. You don't yeah. We made vans and socks and some other things for employee activation which is really fun. which is part of is getting people on board is is getting the employees to get to a place where they believe in the next phase and it was? It was not easy but there are deliveries while. We chose all the things that we did and I will say the first board meeting. Were we brought all this into them. June of this year and the former. CMO's were like. Yeah got it. This is awesome and the former CEOS former C. I. O.'s or currently standing. CFO's were like what data to everything isn't grammatically correct and why pink and it was it was really. It was really a tough board meeting and we had to have conviction and we did. I did Doug Susan. Did the folks who really believed in this but we had real conviction around and said give us two months to build this out at the next board meeting before we launched this in September. You will see where we brought this to you. And because it's not data to everything that's really provocative but the two clicks below that when you start building out the stories of the people that are doing things with data we changed. Our tagline was to your data's now turn data into doing which is exactly what all of our customers are doing. They're doing really incredible things. So let us build this out and come back to you and fast forward three months and early September. We walk in this board meeting. And I'm thinking please God let this go well because in a week for now we have a massive event with a with two hundred CEOS IOS and former president Barack Obama coming to set the stage for data isn't it is a global imperative and we walk in the board meeting hoping they're going to get on board and We we left a standing ovation. And so how do you. Whether it's an I know some of the executives were not there. Some board members were not there. How do you particularly you? You know Kerry was not a CMO with five years of relationship equity in the company. How do you get them over these big humps when there's so many skeptics and snipers listen so I have to? I have to give del a lot of credit. Sixteen years in a highly matrix organization taught me a lot about influencing without authority and it's it is served me well and I can read people. It's sort of one of my gifts and I could tell who wasn't on board even the ones who aren't verbally saying it and so I spent a lot of time with my boss who had relationships with these folks and I was brand new to them and listened right and said what is your angst. Where are you getting you know? Why can we get to the place where you can disagree and commit? And I'd bring the table together and we'd sit and talk bunch of times because sometimes we'd say we'd commit and then the actions would show that they weren't committed. They're kind kind of A. There is still some noise about hating the pink and so we had a really good on top of that and it was a process but I will say I respect every one of my colleagues and my peers. They each had a point of view. All of them have come around now even the biggest naysayers but it was a process. Of what is the heartburn. How do we get to.

"Exactly in Larry and Sergei have left the building. I am a little surprised. They last as long as they did. I would've I would've left a long time ago if I would have been one of those guys. Yeah apparently now that Google is twenty one years old cheese Chris World. Can you believe leave that unbelievable. It is really I remember a pre Google Internet. I do too. I remember a pre internet world when when Google was just a very very big number. Yeah seriously so they finally decided to call it quits and retired or their own private islands. Are they really. I have no idea because that does seem to be the case right. Let's that's what people do. They go get their own private island. I think they probably already have one. They're they're being delivered there by drone as we speak getting they're getting their Internet by project loon and yes they're self-driving Waymo cars ars shuttling them around the island. Boston dynamics because they could have you know robot guard dogs all over the place. I think they can still afford to purchase one or two if they wanted to. Well thanks guys you. You invented a really great product Got Way Way Way Way way too big and too powerful well it still works so it does. It's funny because people people keep hitting us up for that Search engine the plants trees and I keep writing back but it doesn't work well. It doesn't work. Well I will use Google. Go plant my own tree. My tree from trader. Joe's that you saw on on social. Yeah there's grub trees we took one of those like three or four years ago and when the holidays were done we planted it in my roommate's mother's backyard and it's still there it's still growing excellent. Yes yes so. But if we could only get Zuckerberg to take a take a page out of Larry and Sergey as book and just go away well we'd be so much better the problem with the Sucker Berg and removing the sucker Burgas. We've discovered that the the rot does not stop there Sheryl Sandberg isn't any better people at the second level aren't any better. Nothing's going to change. Even Zach leaves. Yeah so just don't use facebook and I'm like damn it yes I got one friend yesterday. so funny while the FTC is reportedly opening a probe into Amazon's cloud business as well now not terribly shocking. They're expanding the scope of their Amazon probe to include the cloud business in addition to look into the COS e commerce business. They are reportedly starting to ask software companies. That Amazon works with about Web Services Practices such as I dunno perhaps leaving the bucket open by default leaving every S. three bucket and elastic database open. Yes well that's not really what they're looking into although they probably should be saying. Hey how about you switch that on by default but they're trying to figure out if it's harming competition da or violating any under anti trust laws so there you go so Amazon is getting squeezed by the FTC. We shall see what happens. The web services is still providing. Most the company's operating income over the past four years is down a little bit but it's still a nine billion dollar a year industry. Yeah because it's fantastic Zari. Sorry but AWS's fantastic. It changed the world. Yes they made it very simple to put all your data out there for everybody whether you wanted them to or not in a you know. I'm starting to think that there's a lot of pep cat going on with these databases because of course remember. I do remember a lot of times when I was setting things up. You did have to set a default password and you did have to turn it off manually. Because what a lot of programs don't want to do is write that authentication layer into their APP. There's like nobody's ever gonNA find this private. I'm the only one that knows about it. Well well they're wrong. They're totally wrong. Thank you showed in for that but yeah I mean I don't know I think I I I do think. AWS should be spun off of Amazon. I agree and then just be W S. I think that would be fine but but you know there is competition out there. Google cloud which is up to seventy five percent of the time Microsoft is killing it with great cloud services. Actually yeah I mean you can even do. PHP which was always when they first started there like they didn't have any PHP containers. I'm like well I guess I'm not using you. But now they do basically do everything that. Aws S. does I haven't checked the pricing to see how comparable they are. Have you know I haven't because I don't really have need for them until services these days I want to do that. And you don't WanNa do that stuff anymore. More can use put up a website for me. No no no. I don't do that anymore. I'm retired but you still remember how to do that. nope forgot all about it totally forgot I don't remember. Don't don't have any of that software my computer anymore. Nope all gone all gone. Except it's not anyway. I found this great article over at in Gadget. That basically says what we've been saying all along as do most tech are these days This is by Roberto Baldwin. In and says regulators are the only ones who can save us from distracted drivers. Clearly we cannot be trusted with technology while behind the wheel. Yeah pretty much. That's about right so. His argument is the national highway. Traffic Safety Administration has to do something about this. We're not even talking about going to full fledged autonomous vehicles. People people cannot get away from their phones with their regular cars. Now it's ridiculous Just like the annoying seatbelt warning system or the lane. Keep assist feature reminds you to put your hands on the wheel. Cars need to start alerting drivers when they're no longer paying attention to actual driving so we want more alerts and more of everything we we want our cars to monitor us now because we cannot be trusted to monitor ourselves anymore. S is how sad we have become as a species. Yeah they need that system. Cadillac has that tracks the tracking the steering wheel dashboard. That's exactly what he's He's arguing for we need. Our cars need to start monitoring us to make sure that we're paying attention attention. The European Union is already acted on this. In March of this year at mandated that starting in twenty twenty two all new cars must include tech to monitor drivers for signs of distraction or drowsiness. US A recognized that not paying attention on the road can have deadly consequences and it's time for the US to do the same thing. This is why we can't have nice thing exactly stupid do we. I mean you're driving. You know we're GONNA see now. I think I think I'm going to invent this. We're going to invent a little hat. That basically goes on your forehead. That has has a picture of your eyeballs on it when your head goes down to look at your phone. It's still sees a pair eyeballs right. That's how you get around it. We're going to hack the distracted driving. That's that's how that's how we're going to do it because anybody that buys those is going to be dead within a year. So we're calling the heard we're doing we're doing good for humanity and all mankind except the only problem with that is is the innocent people that they hit when they go out. There's that you know I obviously. We've we've noticed this happening in our day to day lives on on a regular basis over the past few years but I haven't Gone on a vacation where you know. I rented a car and all that sort of stuff in quite some time. And I've gotTa tell you. Oh my God. Driving in Hawaii was terrifying because because it's all tourists that are using their phones for Google maps or everything like that and it's so easy. The car I rented was just some piece of crap and it had had had carplay. carplay is phenomenal. All you gotTa do is plug your phone and you get your map right there. You don't need to stare at your phone. Why are you all looking at your phone? You fucking morons. Ron's yeah because they're not actually looking at the map there there instagram their their trip. The problem don't instagram and drive. People yes I think instead of instead of like mandating this distracted driver technology we just have to have have carplay. carplay is pretty phenomenal. Jason Catis say I cannot wait where we're looking to get a new car Pretty soon and making sure that The now free carplay and BMW is is on. My car is a priority. Yeah told told you man. It's pretty nice. The only downside is plug your phone into it. But that's actually an upside because then you're not going to look at your phone so I saw saw this one over at business insider and I love the DNA. Testing fat is ending. That's because everybody has already done it and everybody else is the smart ones. That haven't done it. Well not so much the smart ones because it doesn't matter because you've got our data anyways by the sheer number of people that have already done it. Yeah so the interesting thing is you know. It's like twenty three in me. An ancestry are just. They're seeing their numbers declined. Because yeah it's not really it's a nice to have. This is a you know a first world problem problem to get sure DNA tested and I still think that A lot of people shouldn't do it. I'm just down with that now that I've done it and I know I know the stress that it's caused me and then I finally got over it but a lot of this stuff that they're talking about her Third Party lab as well to take your ancestry in twenty three and me data and then repackage repackage it and try and sell it back to you in different ways that as absolute bs. And you know it's like Oh. We found that you are allergic to chocolate covered. eminem nineteen seventy two to nineteen seventy-six. It's like they can't get that specific but they make stuff up like that they do to try to keep up selling you and keep your interest. I actually listened to Dave Bittner of course who we talking. We'll all be talking to you shortly. Jason will not be able to be there He was on Christopher Locke heads PODCAST broadcasting. I listened to that while I was in Hawaii and they got into the DNA testing stuff a bit and You know he comes down on. There are certain use cases Monthly his own because he was adopted did where it makes sense to go and do these tests but the overwhelming thought is. If you don't need to do this don't do it right definitely and you know I think the other issue here is that ancestry in twenty three million the big box. DNA testing labs once. You get your DNA tested. You're kind of that's it. They don't have another revenue stream for you. Yeah that's it. They can't figure out how to monetize that beyond selling your data. Yeah I'm not going to get a subscription. I'm like my. DNA is already there. I don't need more data from you. Actually want less data from you. I'll give you a subscription to throw it away set visibility two zero s forever visibility zero. That's about it and my wife sent me this one Earlier this morning. I didn't really get a chance to read too much of it. This is one of our former advertisers. The away luggage people and a quick scan of the article basically tells me that millennials do not know how to fucking run a company again. It's it's all snake oil and it's all brand and it's all made up up to look good even though behind the scenes. They don't know what they're doing. It's a nightmare scenario for most of the employees etc etc etc.. It's a I I have only just started to read it as a very long form article but man. These people don't know how to run companies. What do you expect? It's probably their first time out of the gate. And so he got the money. Yeah and is there a fire festival away edition. That would be fun. Yeah so apparently. It's not a great company. They're having a lot of problems right now. Oh poor guys speaking of companies that are having a Lotta problems. The Technology Company that we've talked about this not really a technology company. It's a bike. It's a bike to bike with an ipad strapped to the top. Well there in the news this week because there they lost one point five billion dollars in value from its market cap because of an ad that they made well I I would argue that. It's the market just correcting itself to what they actually should be worth but You know I'm GonNa come down on the other side of the Internet on this thing. I watched this ad didn't bother me. I yeah no problem with this ad whatsoever. I I actually think it's a million times better than their previous ads. which involved perfectly in shape people in multibillion dollar.

eating a piece of bread with butter it's funny this is tangent but I I really appreciate women who eat my my wife is five feet tall and she's not a very big person and I'm telling you she eats when we go out to dinner sheets at least as much as I do and like she feels she feels a little embarrassed if she's still eating and I'm not eating out eat meat at dinner Oh yeah no my fiance it will be the first to tell you that he and he's chef I can eat him under the table every time we go out at home I'm always snack he eats literally just three tiny meals a day and I'm just like a compost I'll put anything in my stomach anything and everything like I get this hasn't happened to be too much but when it happens it's full on where it's like you want to eat like twelve Italian meals of pot like you just you can't I know in between for me yeah there's no in between I either go all day without eating and kind of forget about it or do not stop eating a whole day now I heard you say in the past you know that you were how do I wanna say it as as nicely as I can think of you weren't always felt as you are today it's a little bit more spherical Miracle Yeah there listen there has been points in my life where I'm more spherical than I wish this is this is like borderline diabetes Syrup I was a big girl and I lost a bunch of weight very fast a very short period of time in an unhelmeted when he lost I lost a little over fifty pounds in what kind of timeframe less than a year wow like nine months and how tall are you I'm five shoe that's that's a lot for a person with that frame that's all I did not care like oh no it was just all midsection and so what what was it that caused this change it how old were you when you lost the weight again I was like eighteen nineteen related on the laurent wr side throat have always been on the route rounder side which I don't really understand because no one else in my family is that way it was just knee think I was also the only one who was smoking weed and high school so that might have had something to do with that was the lead making hungrier Oh my God i would e- everything and anything yeah isn't it funny it's like a pot will make you eat the entire like I have to make a deal with myself and say okay look you're GonNa have a snack preplanned net shit otherwise because you can't you cannot walk into the pantry stone no no I you'll be standing there for thirty minutes trying to decide what you want to eat insensitive all you'll just ended up taking everything within your hands and bring him back to the couch now I choose yeah for me getting stoned is I could never ever ever do it in public for me it's a very like ritualistic thing where at home it's at night and I have a snack and that's it you know it's not a party thing for me it's not a fun thing it's just a relaxing thing yeah completely I understand that and the other thing too is if you're stoned in public you have to act like you're not stoned Oh and then you look so trying to act like you're not stoned well right and then the point being stone is to be stoned so why not stone which is actually a Lotta mental energy which takes away the fun of being stone and so I kind of review I want to be stoned by myself yeah I those are the people yeah those are the people who complain about getting paranoid from smoking because you're doing it in public stay in your house then there's no paranoia and bulbs yeah I spent some time with people you love Abbott your dog the best to be around when you're stone I think animals are always great to be around it it's a actually I was just talking to a dear friend of mine about this is this sounds Corny I know but it's an incredible thing when an animal loves the shit out of you Oh my God I think about that constantly like sometimes my dog will be sitting on the complete other side of the couch and completely you know unprovoked we'll just get up from their sweet slumber and trot over and lay right beside beside me and I'll look get them like I don't deserve this kind of love I don't deserve this unconditional love from you why are you so good to me yeah it's crazy and you know when they look straight in the eye and loving the shit out of you there is like what is going on here possible it's incredible it's what makes me want to be better person just the way my dog I wanna need the kind of person my dog thanks I am that's my motivation I love that say the T. shirts and shit that say that yeah I'm trying to be the person my mother thinks I am too well you'll never live up to that aim aiming a little lower go for your dog but you know a side note we have eight hands chickens and I didn't WanNa eggs yeah leagues every farm well I wouldn't and we have a garden but we got you know with eight hens in I mean they like you know for the older ones last and the younger ones more but you know probably on average three eggs each week what yeah no we're constantly giving eggs to everybody we know that's Easy thing they're incredible pets they're every bit as smart and fun and funny and personality rich a dog or a cat and there's don't run away from you no they they want to pick him up oh my God that's so cute yeah yeah I'm beatrice emotional support person uh-huh chickens all have great names you know Alexa others yeah it's gotTa be Golden Girls names right like is in mildred an awesome name yeah like it's got to be an old an old lady name that sounds like all she does is tipped around all day in Gos- the perfect name for that yeah and one of our more recent ones I love this day her name is winner Fred we call her Winnie winifred isn't that a great name Winifred yeah so yeah animals also so you have a dog I have two dogs yeah dogs a handful yeah holiday seven and six but now I'm getting puppy fever and I'm looking into a third can I don't know I'm just worried about whether or not like my love has that kind of depth whether or not I can stand to love another being as much because I already feel spread then between the two dogs like I feel guilty when I don't give one as much attention as the other so thinking about adding a third to the mix there's not gonna be any love leftover for my fiance It's funny I used to work with a guy who at the time I met him was a was a a new grandfather he had maybe one or two berry on grandchildren and so he was talking about how does the grandchildren come on he he's just gets lower and lower and his wife pecking order and he said and now I worry we're GonNa have more grandchildren and she's going to buy more dogs because with everyone I'm lower lower on the list it's so funny oh yeah you gotta give your guy a shot for awhile here before you just obliterate them below a mountain of dogs to have kids then he's finished it just keeps falling down the list is a guy that's actually my biggest fear I hear so much that my fiance will love our children then he loves me which is of course going to happen but still fear for it I don't know I mean I think at least for me I I feel like I love different people in different ways it's like oh I have you know one hundred percent love I give fifteen percent over here for their I don't think about it a bad way but I I could see that I guess I'll kill him if he does have you guys decided when you're getting married Yeah June twenty twenty one wow that sounds very exciting congratulations thank you I'm very excited about all the time plan but you need the plans already not so much knee deep but we've dip our toes in we've talked to photographers I'm talking to a planner we're GONNA do it overseas so it's will we will definitely be lucky to have all of this time to plan out well let's own too so it was very exciting I hope you wonderful ceremony and and I also hope you know sometimes people seem to get very carried away with the wedding and forget a little bit about the marriage yeah no it's definitely not going to be like that he would never let it be like that that's probably me if I was just in charge of it but no he would he would start putting his foot down he's all about keeping it intimate and small and you know all of that but then he wants a hundred and fifty guests and I'm like this isn't lining up we need to talk thirty people like we need to meet halfway now I heard you talk I think it was on a podcast but definitely you talking so somewhere in you know at the time and you were describing some a little bit of what sounded like maybe some distraught to me that it was tough to be you NBC. single oh actually I think that was on the Lance Armstrong podcasts okay yeah that would make sense yeah and so could you tell me a little bit about that in how Mr Wonderful broke through the situation you know what it's beautiful thing when he had no idea who I was I I mean I love food I am a huge Foodie I love traveling and trying new restaurants so I follow the Michelin Guide on Instagram and they posted about the restaurant that had just made history in Sweden called France and they had just gotten three stars in the fastest time possible and it was the first three star restaurant in Sweden's so the Michelin Guide took me to Francis Page and then a couple like a couple rows down Franson have posted the picture very handsome looking chef saying thank you so much for all you've done for us thank you for your time good luck in Copenhagen and that took me to Roberts page and sorted following him and I liked about you know seven pictures in a row on his page thinking I'll never see this and then the next day I wake up to a message from him saying hey how are you so are you into food I honestly got not starstruck but I would just get on my friend just as I got very very nervous immediately and I didn't know why I'm like Oh this guy is probably just gonNA start trying to stick game or you know every other guy on the Internet but he genuinely had no idea who I was and it wasn't until we started talking that he google because he's like to listen girl five million followers following me and face timing with me so so do I take that to me and then you had to go to Sweden into guy who'd never heard of you I had to go all the way to Europe to find a guy worth dating yeah I mean I I guess it's hard is your but you tell me but I mean you're one of the most visible women ever on the Internet Yeah Yeah so for me it's not just about finding someone who's who's okay with my past it was more so about finding someone who wasn't intrigued by it.
"christopher locke" Discussed on Unstructured Interviews
"Back at each part saying so y dickson and read my par- <hes> try to keep the energies making us unnatural and it takes a couple hours or more to do each one in the truth. Is i have to do it. Because of course that's like epic fail from thailand highlander. Do you have destroyed my entire images. You has been technologically all knowing and it's for the guest. I mean it's rude for me not to give them the best possible product same way that if i choose somebody to be a guest at they've got to be important to me. I'm gonna treat them as their important to me as well yeah well. I'm into into that so he messed up <hes> you could say that or you say i messed up. I messed up. I messed up. I messed up and messed. Stop so now that being said you gave me. I'm i'm coming out with all. I'm not pulling any punches. Got another punch so you are getting feedback. People don't know enough about you so i'm here to help guide this. Who is eric thing same issue. I had to say michaud on my show and you pointed out for everyone to hear that i was abused by. Who was it erin brockovich that erin brockovich the real erin brockovich said said randy. Why are you doing shows alone. You are enough. You don't always have to have the guest. You are enough so now since you made sure. Everybody knew i had that said to me. I'm gonna flip it on you eric. Are you ever gonna do a show with just you because you are enough enough. See this is the advantage. We have on each other to stab each other in the back because we talk to each other on the side on the phone ultimately. You can cut anything who i can be. I can think i'm as clever as i want but ultimately if you want to edit me out completely another edit point. Thank thank you yeah. I was gonna say you could actually record the entire interview with somebody else. Altogether just do a different voice. You know what now that i think about i could redo my parts. Ugh got the experience of that so you're going to go solo. I actually have a solo podcast well. I was going to say that was another part. Oh you do. Let's talk about your other podcast but for for the for when we definitely wanna talk about that because i love the show for the sake of unstructured. Would you ever go sell them without a guest what i would have gone feedback people like it when i do when i answered questions that people people send in and they can send them an email facebook group or whatever and i have done it. I've done a few and i've actually been told by at least one person who i think very highly of that. Those were the only episodes he always listens to go. That's nice however i don't like talking about myself. Part of the reason why i bring on all these cool people like you is just more interesting and it's much easier for me to tell you and tell jordan paris and to tell christopher locke hits the all out myself off. All over that you guys need to do solo shows no problem giving me advice none whatsoever. I can get text advice. Yes you meet eleven thirty at night. No there's you have new problems. Tell me what exactly exactly exactly see. I'm very i am very very generous. You are very generous with your thoughts very very generous and i'm also pretty honest that i am a complete hypocrite well. It's hard. I mean let it is difficult. I am a talkative person and i don't mind telling my own stories but ultimately we are working on behalf half that listener and we're working on behalf of that guest so i have to say i respect it. I have to say i get the difficulty because it can be very difficult. I had someone recently tell me they love the fact that my show isn't about me and sometimes i think it's too much about me because you know sometimes ahead guests that don't contribute as much and i kind of have to fill in the gaps but please don't underestimate ultimately the one through line. You didn't know i was going to say this. This is not planned to one through line to your show. You sure you are important. You knowing who you are and what you believe in we we still see. These people grew so i absolutely encourage you. Even if you don't go solo have me or somebody else come back. Do those questions now thank you <hes>. I do them online with my dog. That's how chicken at absolute chicken that <hes> you know my videos to promote when i answer questions that are sending to me. I doing boom with my dog so no no. This is perfect perfect point so i wanna put it out there yeah because i want to hear back from the audience this. Would you like me to do solo show. What would you like to hear. How frequently would you like them or since he volunteered. Would you like me to do shows with randy. Oh god wanted to answer that. They're going to take gilligan gilligan's because there is a template for that. I am very open to say i'm happy to steal left and right now and those those of you know that i know jordan harbinger of the jordan harbinger show and he's been on here and also jason fillipo who's also been a guest a couple of times and they have something called feedback friday. They do it together so jordan harbinger jour- won the top podcasters in the world doesn't do solo shows. He does episodes with us producer so perhaps doing shows with gilligan could be a fun for every fun. I do like doing it because because it is fun. I still think people are really miss. Not not seeing your face okay but i have to go on so what's up with the other podcast. Let's talk about that. Okay the other podcasts because i do. I'm into ward play. I love words. I'm a writer. I'm all about words so that that's my thing so. Let's talk about that podcast. Okay well. This is about me being as blunt and open and honest as possible. Oh please please please hold back. Don't do do that because we're not here for you to be blunt and open and honest. Were okay. Okay okay. One thing i'm not very good at is reading out loud and the other other show is scripted. I designed it to be scripted because the only way i can get better at reading out. Loud is to read out loud how exactly so there is a show that put together called portmanteau peach r. t. m. a. n. t. e. a. issue correct okay portmanteau portmanteau i mean i literally thought when you told me it was port like wine man. Let me china part of a foot. I mean i really was like what the hell is wrong with. You but a portmanteau is a real thing. Yes it goes back to louis carro like obama alison. Jabber walkie is his first example but it is two words that are put together into one in term and everybody will probably think of denver as a perfect example. Well not everybody because that's kind of an old one. That's yeah jennifer lopez and ben affleck. That's true yes on for quite some time so about sixteen or metro sexual or many other terms podcast podcast so two different words that come that are put together to create a brand new word that is a portmanteau exactly correct pip short shows were you give the history i'll turn right and maybe a little bit of how it affects society or what the influences i bit off a little more than i could chew and got really ambitious with the first episode which switched to the second and did brexit so it's like you really wanna swing for the fences on that one full of dates and complicated terms. It was much more challenging infomercial title which is my second was just much more fun in light now. So these are all a learning experience. I did three of these so far and i've been really snowed under trying to get ready for a conference. I'm speaking at but also i will admit that i was knocked knocked on my heels a little bit because i got brutalized in in a review. Why so care i. I know that i don't care and played it off but i mean okay. Let's get back to every there's something for everybody. I mean the thing is there's all these quote. Unquote thought leaders out there. Many of them shouldn't be leading. Anybody's thought they just think it's sexy and cool and interesting and they wanna. I'm trying to make a living at it. There's people out there reviewing. That's one person's opinion. I've been reviewed for my work as an actor all my life and and they said some mean stuff but you know that means i have to kind of take the nice stuff with a grain of salt too because i've always known it's just one person and do i really know how qualified that person has to share. That opinion really is just an opinion and comes across different when i when i listened to a portmanteau comes across different because it is shorter. I love the word play. I love the history stuff now that you mention it. It comes across liquor so i guess yes cow. You're reading. I never occurred to me that you were reading but let's actually step that means that i'm getting there yeah. It sounds like an n._p._r. Thing i don't know if that's good or bad. That's a good thing i mean th i like n._p._r. Now i think it's got that sort of clean n._p._r. Feel so. I think it's cool when it short so i encourage people. I'm a listener so i encourage people to listen to it. So what's this thing with your speaking this week. Is that map con map gone. Yes my say what is that. I know that you're going to map condis week but i don't know what it is well. I'd almost call it a portmanteau. It is atlantic podcast conference. Where's it at it is actually in atlantic city at at the ocean resort casino so very very luxurious background atlantic as osha is it. That's not really mid. Atlantic jersey is not. I used to live in atlantic. You live mid atlantic. I know i think of myself as dead midlantic. The beaches literally minutes berry mid atlantic. I'm having trouble stretching jersey and make it midlantic but hey they gotta deal so we'll if you're going to add canada on my friends you know it's not just the states here. I'll give him that but no you did. You say you're speaking at this. I am yes. Are people going to listen. How many people oh a friend of mine literally shake. He went to orlando to speak at something's supposed to have a thousand people people and because of the hurricane.

"christopher locke" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Joining us. Never coming up later this hour. Matt maiocco is going to hop on talk about forty hours embarrassment. Get into the big match this weekend. You wonder? All the playoff scenarios going on. I mean, the bears are involved in quite a bit of a they really are. I mean, if you look at the Cowboys to get the number three seed they've got to win out for the rest of the season, which is two more games. And they gotta have the bears lose forty nine. Or so Cowboys are rooting for San Francisco this weekend for sure yeah. They could play spoiler. Could they absolutely could play spoiler. I mean the bears. Would you rather have the bears or the Cowboys benefit? I'm just I want the bears the benefits so bad. I really do Cowboys. I cannot stand the Cowboys. Is it the franchise or is it just the this damn star? It's his damn stays starts. Exactly, right. I want to transition into the NBA for just a second the wars not backing accident till tomorrow. We'll take it on the on taken on Luca and the Mavericks, but did you hear about this news that people want LeBron James to be investigated? NBA GM's are calling out LeBron James for tampering know talking about Anthony Davis and talking about all these guys that he wants specifically with Anthony Davis a lot of NBA want LeBron investigated for tampering. I think it's ridiculous to be honest with how tampering the NBA's questionable to wasn't Magic Johnson. Getting go on TV to go on wync. Yeah. Something like that was Jimmy Kimmel or what was it? What was it? And they went on there talking about players and he was getting the tampering phone calls. I think it's ridiculous. I really do the NBA. The NBA is such a it's very pop culture for sports. It's like the NBA is so dramatic with how they operate because you have a lot of people who are mega superstars in the NBA. And I just think that the way that they operate. There's a lot of drama that goes on these guys are very famous the very recognizable because you can see their face. There's a lot of drama that goes into it. But this whole tampering thing with the dick. I'm trying to understand like, I get it with general managers, maybe coaches on being influential in a lot of things, you know. Money wise, decision wise. Correct. Yes players they're just gonna talk. So what they should do is just investigate LeBron James talking to his buddies just in general, they should investigate every player talking to another player on the other team. Always every single. It'd be consistent about if you want if that's true. I. He did sucks because you're LeBron James Anthony Davis. That's kind of disgusting. But I'm not faulting. Lebron doing that? Why? Why? No, I'm with you. Other GM's are going damn it. He's the best recruiter. That's what it is. That's what it is like the chip Kelly Brown bag, the best recruiters are the the warriors. But just saying Katie argue with that at all I want to get to the sound from Andre Iguodala LA lots of pay. He was on the Christopher Locke, Ed podcast, and he was talking about how the warriors are out are in this upper echelon when it comes to not only just in the NBA teams in professional sports, and how they're treated this is Andrea Igwe Dala talking about the warriors travel expenses and how they just move about the country throughout the year on the Christopher Lockhead podcast. Mike can you wrote for his fleas? We always tell this is funny thing we always tell the young guys rookie. Listen, this isn't the really. Like the warriors. This is in real like this is kind of like a fantasy land and even like, I had teammates Phillies like man basketball in real life. This fantasy flying around these claims making on his money playing basketball, and we'll be definitely touted guys. Like, you know, this is kind of like not real life. Right. We had warriors or even a step above your typical team where step above like a good team. Wow. Because some teams like have discussions with a like when I was in Philly. I talk to our traveling guy, and he would be like, I got a budget teams have budgets and some teams are really cheap. He like, listen, we got a budget. So we can stay in good hotels and certain CDs. But other cities we can't stay in hotels that are as good. Yeah. So he was like, well, I say this is his idea we stay in good hotels and good cities and bad hotels in Bassett. He says what difference? Does it make a good point? So that's how we did it. We had the budget on it out. But with the warriors is like there's no sustained. It's like everything's whatever is the best we can find. And then we actually have food setup. We have food setup. Everywhere we go with the warriors. Like when we get to in some ways a restaurant reserved for his daughter, whatever you want food is set up and in the next day pretty gains. There's a whole spread at the shoot around of four union after home games is who set up, and then, you know, we get breakfast and lunch before and after practice chefs coming for you sound snap baloney sandwiches. Yeah. I love that. I love the the one line that jumped out to me the most with Andrea dollar on that Christopher Lockhart podcasts was that. He's talking to the younger cats on this team saying this is not how it is every single day. This is not the real MBA. You're in a very special situation with this team is very very special time with this franchise in the NBA. But this is not how it usually goes. We don't get pampered like this every single day. But that's what happens when you win championships. I love that Andrei with dollar who obviously has been a veteran in this league for not what fifteen years is real about that. That's the one thing. I loved about. I love about. Andrea Andres, never come across as anything less than genuine. He's just a real individual. He's always going to give you exactly what he thinks. I love that. He was so honest about hey, this is how we roll right now. You know, when I was with Philly, or when I was with Denver we stayed at bad hotels, a bad cities. We didn't have this spray we had baloney sandwiches. Now, I'm winning championships. The warriors and this is the lifestyle that we live. No, I agree. And and you look at. NBA in the NHL NHL for a long time had the they still have it the blackout period where you know in the afternoon, they have their afternoon, nap you're supposed to turn off everything blackout. It's just been a routine. Forever. And I think they change a lot of things the NBA is adopted that as well. Or they'll go home and and take naps, whatever, do, you know, all that. Well, at the same time, they've also realized that there's certain places that have bad beds. And if you have bad bad, your body's going to be, you know, all this stuff the NBA's taken on that. I would agree to an extent MLB has done a phenomenal job over the years of just not only travel travel kind of a little little different. Then the NBA because you don't have private jets taking you because that's basically what they're on. They're all customized to fit these these bodies that are just not normal. There are six ten and and whatnot. But when it comes to hotels in major league baseball every time I played for you stayed in top notch of all top notch places. That's what I wanted to ask you. I mean, the fourteenth that you played for in the show, and I'm not gonna ask you the name which team was better or not. But I'm sure you've had I'm sure you had seasons where there are a little bit on the chief side, and I'm sure you've had seasons where you got a little bit pampered. Or was it more in the middle? Honestly was on in four physicians that were very well off. So I can't sit here and say that I had I chose one or the other the only thing you could always talk about is travel secretaries, you know, and that's how you know who they treated well. And all I honestly, I was lucky because I played for big market teams. You did. So for me, I stayed in great places all the time. Now the difference on on the road as it started to go. The the food got better everywhere, you go and now on this last CPA, we talked about it. It's kind of a joke to me how they have to have a chef on the road now in those places. It's like come on like whatever you don't need. You don't need that on the road. You can go out and get some food and whatnot. But I I understand NBA. They take care of you NHL. They take care of you. They they're worried about their players. They're investing in their players. Then, you know, I'm sure the. Warriors are ahead of people on that. But I'm not gonna say that they're completely different. See this is funny now that we're having this conversation because the text messages are trickling in this one from the seven seven all the more reason why the NBA is not a grind anyone who says has their head up their rear end. Get a grip these players being pampered on jets, but I disagree with that eighty to travel. It's still travel still getting into a plane for four five six hours. You still got a check in and out of the hotel. You still got to get up for practice and shoot around. You still got to work not just sitting there gorging on prime rib. Although that's what I would do if I was on a team, I wouldn't be getting very far my career. But I disagree with that. It absolutely is a grind you still have to be very comfortable. I think with athletes, I mean, you could tell you can tell me this more than than I can tell anybody friends because you've been there, but I think with athletes, you you gotta protect your body. You gotta make sure you get your right food in your sleep. And that's very very important. Very more important than I think than the sleep thing is the most important place. Replace that. The the heavenly beds. Not a big fan of what was the correct way to offer me. I always felt like crap the cities we went to that where the heavenly beds. And all the way like a hammock. Yeah. Just not like, but that people will be like you're complaining about it. Now, it's like there's comfort right everyone has their own comfort level. I mean, if you're making money off of your body, which is what athletes do because they have traveled to different. Sure. Absolutely. It is. Because we stay in a city for three four nights. Yes. Absolutely. The NBA will stay for one night. What was the worst? You. Remember, the worst hotel you had to stay at and how it really impacted you on the field. I'm just curious if that fister hotel Milwaukee. So what happened? I mean, it was just a blackout on the old side the old sights on it. Also, you had ghost haunting you all night. I didn't have any I slept in my lights on and everything. But I barely slept. Klesko and Sweeney and bonds making sure that I knew that there's ghosts in on that side of the the place where they just screwing around with you. They've running around. Like absolute. No, no, no, no. They just nothing after that. But just put in your mind that there is there's a ghost in there. There's ghosts in there. All right. I've never never done that my life never slept the lights on you. Don't strike me as a ghost guy. No, no. But a freak out. Was there something that happened in the middle of the night that got on easy man was telling you nothing. Okay. There are just filling your heads with the thoughts that was the whole couple others had some things happen. Repeat what happened? Oh, okay. I it made it made it all that much more real for me. All right. Very, but I mean, the one thing that they are the the one thing I will say that the warriors probably yours are way above everyone. And far ahead is what is the fact that? You know, they don't have really a budget when they travel. You know, every team operates on budgets. And for the NBA for especially for the the warriors. Like, they look at that is like. That that that would be taken care of later. That's taking care of on the basketball court with all the winds and stuff if we have none of that. See a lot of people are now texting in as we're talking about this..
