"Steve Bertrand here on this Monday afternoon. Thanks very much for tuning in. You know, One of the things we're going to do on this show is revisit. Some of the other shows, interviews that maybe you didn't have a chance to Listen to. Perhaps you were at work or asleep or just weren't doing it. But eso John Williams earlier today talk to Senator Dick Durbin about President Trump's Supreme Court nominee. Amy Cockney. Barrett Tio told John Williams that the process to have her confirmed will be a quick one. There's going Tio accelerated schedule two going together information it will be faster than almost any time in history. The determination of the president is to get this vote in the Senate before the election. And you say yourself What is the hurry? Why? Uh, we know that vacancy with Anton Scalia go on for months. Why is just after he felt in weeks? Well, I'm afraid it's pretty obvious. There's going to be an all argument on the future of the affordable care act Obamacare on November the Temps for Justice is not sitting in for that all argument. Traditionally, they won't vote final decision on the case. They want a new justice on the court for this argument. We know how the president feels about eliminating it. We know unfortunately that so far any Cockney Berk from Notre Dame is said the same thing. So what's at stake is coverage for 20 million Americans. What's at stake is the protection of health insurance that we can't be discriminated against. For pre existing conditions. It's pretty important vote. Mr McConnell said that the president will have the votes even before it was announced to that person would be. I suppose the flip is also fair to consider. How can Democrats say we won't vote for that person until they've had a chance to interview them and examined their record? Will you put for her? At this point, I'm not going to commit until we go through the ordinary process considered even more closely what she's written what she said, Uh, ask her questions. I tell you a long list. John 15 minutes won't be enough to get through it. I'm sure my colleagues feel the same way. He was disappointed when the Republican side even before the nominee was named, said, Well voting for whoever it is, that really doesn't give a lot of credence to the committee of the process. Some of my listeners, though, have said, wouldn't the Democrats to do the same where they reversed? Well, that's a logical thing that's on Instagram set. Yes, he reversed himself from the rule interpretation by Senator McConnell 44 years ago, he bared people to bring it up if he ever contradict himself on in turnaround, contradicted himself. And he said, Well, you do the same thing. Well, there's a lot of cynicism about politics, and much of it is desert. But I really think consistency and mutual respect for your college of ascent has to be part of any plan to bring credibility back, son. Well, I do understand that the president is the sitting president, and that is the existing Senate. So maybe the sin here isn't what's happening now. But what happened to Merrick Garland four years ago, right? Well, you can have it one way or the other. You can take the McConnell rule but meant that we left they see in place for 10 months or more on that President Obama, despite having 270 days left in his term was declared unfit, are unwilling or unable to fill the vacancy. Bethany was just plain wrong. And now Senator O'Connell has reversed himself completely when it's to his political advantage. It doesn't give politics good name, but the politics of it is different now. He said that The president and the Senate were different parties. In Obama's case, they're the same here, so the people have spoken with one voice. Johnny didn't even raise that 10.4 years ago. You know the carpet going trifles Faras. I'm concerned. Here's the bottom line. If there's a vacancy in a timely manner before an election, it's up to the president inside similar circumstance. Roger Tony died. Longest serving justice to the Supreme Court, Abraham Lincoln said, too close to the election. We're not going to fill it till after the election. In this case, Of course, just the opposite is true. Donald Trump wants to fill this because of the affordable care act. And then he announced a new basis for it last week, he thinks there may be an election contest. He wants to have a friendly justice there. Nine justices if that happens Even though Senator Durbin says he's not committed to a vote. He also says there's really not much the Democrats conduce. I can tell you that when it looks when you look close Senate rules and I know him a little better than some. There's there's nothing we can do to stop what is going to occur. We may slow it down a bit. Uh, But if Mitch McConnell has a clear 60 minutes on the Senate floor B before the new president is sworn, and hopefully Joe Biden, he's going to fill that vacancy. The senator was also asked by John about that New York Times story about the president's tax returns that showed chronic losses for the president. But now we understand why he's going to such great lengths to conceal these tax returns. I knew there had to be something in there that was troubling are embarrassing. And now it turns out the president is didn't pay taxes 10 or 15 years before he was sworn in as president. Average American family pays $12,000 a year and federal taxes this president paid nothing. Was that relates to his personal taxes and also turns out when they look at these tax returns that his business empire is not quite as strong as he brags about. He has three or $400 million in debt coming too quickly. Now, why is that even important to talk about? Well, somebody loaning the money and somebody wants to be paid, And he's going to find a way to do it. And his business decisions will be significant, not only in terms of his business interests but whether there's any possible conflict of interest with his public responsibility. Lot of talk about voting. How are you going to vote Vote by mail Vote Early vote on Election Day. How about Senator Durbin? I'm voting by mail. My wife doesn't want to. How are you voting and what do you make of people's apprehension about the process? I missed the first window for an interview this morning because I voted this morning, Uh, went in and saying the county the Cook's office cast my ballot. I know it's done. Uh, there wasn't a long line, of course, depends on where you go on when you go, but You know, I'd say two people you can trust it. Just make sure that you request your ballot before October 19th. That's what the Postal authorities tell us before October 19 and send it back no later than October 27. So it will be postmarked before November 3rd, and that way it will be counted when I has a law, which helps It says that if the ballot is been postmarked on or before November, 3rd you have two weeks for it to be developed delivered by the Postal Service to your election authority, So there's a good opportunity that'll make it time. So above all, to everyone listening..

"Used to join me when I hosted the Wintrust business lunch. You were so ago and this is gonna look at the markets force today, Terry. Welcome to the afternoon news. I am so glad to be on your first show. It's like dancing with an old dancing partner had so much fun on the new business, So I'm glad you could make a little time for things related to money in finance. On this show, I thought you're going to say dancing like with the stars, and that really would have preferred that rather than an old part. You are star Mike. People get rid of their old partners. That's that's not the right way to say. Okay, well, we would never get rid of you. Let's go down markets today. The NASDAQ led the way percentagewise green screen all around. Yes, that's nice. That's nice to see the market go up. But what's really going on is just a balancing act, a CZ market participants concerned about not only Cove it, which was the big thing, and not only a vaccine, which was the big thing, then we know the Fed is gonna have Plenty of money around and it doesn't look like although Nancy Pelosi said, maybe that there'll be another stimulus. But I think what now the market is focused on in this election and the changes that could come depending on who's elected not on to the presidency, but to Congress, So there are a lot of tax issues that are at stake here and again. There's still the whole what's going on. With this economy, The market's going up But economic numbers they're not so great and a lot of people are out of work, and we've got a sort of big deadlines. Now, with the airline saying October 1st. There'll be layoffs, restaurants saying Hey, when you move inside, we can't move inside. We're gonna have to go out of business. Guys. The market's got a lot to digest well. And so the United Airline pilots today agreed on not a furlough system, but I think on reduced hours in order to avoid layoffs, so we've got some Positivity there, but still they'll be bringing in less money on and the idea yet right at the end of another stimulus package. I think there's still a trillion dollars apart. But you wrote at Terry savage dot com that some people who didn't get their original 1200 might still get it and I'm hoping that's my daughter. Well, let's talk about this. The IRA believe it or not, is reaching out nine million people who were non filers, people. Typically now we'll get your daughter in a second works for low income people who are not getting social Security, which automatically generated that 1200 stimulus dollars check and not on size, supplemental security, income or disability from Social Security. Those people pretty much should have gotten their stimulus. If you haven't there's a column up Terry savage dot com What to do if you didn't get your stimulus, but the IRS is trying to reach out to people who did not get a stimulus check. Because they didn't file but I remember story of your daughter because we talked about that earlier this year in a crazy way. When they made this law, they said that dependence Over 17, who are declared it dependent on their parents returned, but they're over. 17 do not qualify, either as dependents for the $500 kids got, But as independent kids even filed every day that summer job the father tax return, they could not get the $1200 check because they were declared dependence. On their parents, Richard or a lot of Grandma didn't get their $1200 check cause they're adult Children said. Well, we're contributing to the support will declare them and take the deduction. Well, the weird things in my situation. We don't need to get bogged down in mind. But I'm assuming it impacts others as well was Emma was a dependent in 2018. He nailed it, but she but the but she wasn't in 2019, which is what it should have been. So now they're two things. You Khun Dio. First of all she if she didn't file a return, and even if she did, so, here's the thing the IRS went first to the 2018 recurrence. When this whole thing started, and any security number that was declared independence, and that was over age 17. I mean their computers could figure this out. Rejected a gyp. They said you guys don't get a stimulus check. However, a lot of people didn't father 2019 returned still last July, so because you removed your daughter from 2019 return, one of two things can happen. She could either go in as a non filer. And say, Wait a minute. I wasn't independent in 2019, or she'll file a return now that the concentrated next Okay next April 2020 tax return, even if she had A few $100 of income from a college job, and I think she's off in college. I just got out of college or whatever. But the point is killed. Tyler return and claim credit. For that $1200.

So the Apple Watch is seeing a couple of upgrades or price adjustment. So there's a watch Six. I believe a watch s ee. What's the story with the Yeah, They've got too much to models every year, they updated and once again they they've added some really huge features on the series six, which is their main line open. Spend $300 for it. Watch. They've added blood oxygen sensors to it. So it has basically as you're wearing it, a Chinese light that shines light and You three or screen for your skin and incentive, the color of your blood and the blood. Yeah, so and works as ah, of course, better than the production centers, a lot of a spot for the covert epidemic but the really cool things, But the apple other companies will add these beach at features to fitness watch, But it's just sort of a feature. Apple did such a great job of integrating with everything else. So this blood oxygen center? Yes, you can. You can decide. Hey, please tell me what my blocks in saturation levels right now.

Maybe I should bring this up course The Boche will provide the doctor with all the data of what it was. It's been observing. Well, thanks for being with us. I just want to go back to one thing that you said is we wrap it up here. You said that the watch shines a light into your skin. Yes, well, we know that the purest courses pretty translucent. So if that's the way it doesn't that's AH along Go. I won't tell you too long here, but that's one of the interesting sort of limitations of these business watches. But of course, it can't do anything that sort of breaks. The skin on DH presents one of the holy grails of fitness watches. Being able to take lunch, blood sugar readings or two and do stuff like that. But unfortunately, there has been some experimentation that way, but there's no way to do it. But with blood oxygen, they found ways around it that again. They're not taking obviously not taking a blood draw, which is the most most efficient way of doing it. But it's good enough and the science is solid enough. For the purposes of this fitness, But you can tell you particularly when you're exercising. Yes. You're reaching the blood of your reaching the blood levels. So the action levels you're supposed to be targeting. As you're working out. You're getting healthier and healthy as it goes.

Robinhood has lured young traders

"And selling stocks on the smartphone. App Robin Hood has become incredibly popular this year especially since the covert pandemic started and there are a few possible reasons why I of everybody's home and has lots of spare time that's got to be part of it maybe. Also, of course, you know, maybe people had a little extra money to invest because so many restaurants and shops were closed also, maybe people sense an opportunity to buy stocks cheap when the stock market collapsed in the first month of the pandemic, whatever the reason Robin Hood announced recently that the amount of money, it makes people trading on its APP doubled in the second quarter of the year two, one, hundred, eighty, million dollars. It's a lot of traits. In the hood is also become kind of famous for the clever ways that it entices people to use. It's apt to and sell stocks. So Digital Confetti or some other animation might fall across the screen when you first deposit money into the APP, we are simple. Take away from that hard to get us in here. Yeah. And Robert also offers free stocks to people who sign up for a trial run into people who convince others to sign up. James. mccomb is twenty five lives in Long Island. New York he is a big robinhood user and there are several things he likes about Robin, Hood's design and how simple and seamless it is to keep track of what's happening for any company. He is interested in it's a great APP for easy information almost like a news feed but for stocks plus the Robin Hood.

HIMSELF INVESTED MONEY IN UBER stock partly because it was number one on Robin Hoods popularity ranking I can kind of get a little bit of a sense of confidence like okay. People believe in this company because it's literally number one on the list currently James is what is known as a retail trader, which is basically anyone who buys and sells stocks for their own personal account not a professional investor who manages other people's money. In this year, it is retail traders like James who've really thrown themselves into the stock. Market. Because the US stock market has gone up in recent months, even hitting a new record high last week a lot of these retail traders have made quite a bit of money lately but other, maybe some reasons to worry that. So many retail traders have started buying and selling stocks using APPs like Robin Hood I would say two parts worried one part. Happy. This is Colin camerer. He's a behavioral economist at Caltech and he has studied the ways that people invest in the stock market collinses. One good thing about Robin Hood is it by making it so? Easy to start buying stocks. It might get people invested in the stock market who otherwise might never have bothered at all, and this can also help people learn more about how specific companies operate into to better understand how the economy works. Especially these days the digital age when it's so easy to find useful information. You know there's a lot of stuff under the hood, the economy, and it'd be good if people knew more about that and they may learn some by just buying selling shares of a particular stock and learning about what boards of directors do. You know how companies actually operate conn said, he was only one part happy and two parts worried about Robin Hoods popularity with retail traders. So here's why he's worried if there is one conclusion that the research about financial markets keeps arriving at again and again it's the individual traders who actively try to pick specific stocks buying stocks. They think we'll go up selling the stocks I think we'll go down are very likely to underperform the overall stock market and this does not just apply to retail traders it also applies. To professional money managers over the last five years eighty, two percent of mutual funds that tried to pick stocks underperformed the overall stock market, which means that most people are just better off investing in what they call an index fund that just tracks the performance at the stock market goes up and down with it over time and Collins says, retail traders are also vulnerable to psychological by sees lead them to make bad decisions when they invest especially, if they don't understand the risks that they're taking if you're buying somebody's selling. And you have to be confident that you're buying from someone who knows less than you about the future of the. So one of the elements in in retail trading is overconfidence. Everybody thinks they're above average also confetti. And? Just. Sucks right in. plus people fall victim to what's known as the disposition effect which makes people sell stocks that have gone up a little too soon missing out on making even more money people have a tendency to sell toxin went up and we think it's because there's a special kind of. Realization utility from actually locking gain and clicking and like seeing in your bank account. From your portfolio numbers on the screen into your bank account or something like would. So people so winners too soon and similarly they tend to hang onto losers typically in a kind of blind faith that it's GonNa Bounce back making these kinds of trading mistakes something that happens when people are actively and frequently buying and selling stocks, and of course, the ROBINHOOD APP is designed to get people to do just that and Robin Hood's business model actually depends on it.

Paths to Infosec: Military Vs. Psychology

"So Logan, can you share a little bit about your Infosec journey? How did you get here where you are today in high school? We had like the army recruiters coming our classroom. and. They're like who doesn't want to go to college and this was after our final. So it's like I'm dumb tests I hate test never again. So I stayed after school to listen to like their whole pitch. And they're like. Computers like yeah, I'M GONNA play warcraft like it hours a day. So like of course so I went down to the Fab and then I got a fairly high score like, Hey, how your cyber operations Keep him on no idea like I thought now it's like it support. It's like, yeah I can do some tickets I you know felt smelt. conned into up here. But they came to your high school talking about computers. So this sort of recruiting specifically for that. Yes. So it was a brand new job that opened up. It was like cutting edge they needed people and no one really knew about it just because when you think of the army, you think like infantry tankers, but it's also a very different kind of organization compared to like corporations. So has that sort of Clear. Task, order structure of the army in your civilian job. Surprisingly enough I feel more clear-cut, orders. Army a lot of the army was lot of just like winging it mainly because no one really knew what to do with us. So Times they were like, Hey, you guys do computer stuff. How're about you setups new desktops? It's like I mean that's not my job but sure well, that's very interesting. All Right Derek, how does that sound very different from from your path? Yeah. In many ways, my path was actually less direct because I took more of an academic route. So I started off as an undergraduate in doing psychology research before I started to switch to information security so actually started doing a a PhD program and did that for a year before I decided that I'd rather actually do information security instead so it was definitely a direct approach Sure. was there like a particular moment or a recurring theme? That's barker interested INFOSEC. Yes. Sure. So actually when I received my offer letter for joining the program for the PhD program, I noticed that at the top in the Url Bar my student ID number was being displayed in in the request itself and I had friends come over and she put in her student ID number. Then her offer letter popped up without any authentication. For me that was actually my first phone where I was like, wow, this is actually kind of interesting. And then from there doing software development just for psychology research, you have to develop experiments and run them, and so those two sort of mixed together in my mind, and that's how I got interested in information security but just to know to something like that. You must have been a little bit interested in Infosec before. Yeah. Always read like wired magazine and things like that. When I was a kid in order to keep up on security and it was very interesting topic although I'd never actually taken it seriously until I sure got into

"Any described at the Lyndon Johnson. Library. Out of Austin and I've seen those boxes. He's describing. And overwhelmed is not even the word. Like, they a cards and he's like some of them were just labeled miscellaneous Yup. And he describes just almost like diving into the middle. You just gotTa see there. No it's. Not In essence it's It's very much. Should you know some combination of detective? Work and treasure hunting Because yeah, I certainly had the experience of going to an archive hooping to find certain kinds of materials, and then they're just not there where nobody can find them. And then you walk away. You Know Kinda empty handed and you have to hit the reset button and start over again. I like doing archival research I think that's part of the fun of being a historic is a ten. Be Incredibly time consuming You know the very first archival project I ever did. and. This was a long time ago. Involved a a woman is a project that was rooted in the mid nineteenth. Century and and and there was a particular woman's correspondence that I wanted to look at so I went down to this archive where it was at as a young woman. Let's say I think she was in her early twenty s. she'd suffered a gruesome horse riding accident, and so she had actually become a laudanum addict to deal with the pain. So by the time you would get to some of the end of these letters. The handwriting would become totally illegible you could. You could watch the effects of the law. was taking, and it would just get loopy and it would start to go in the wrong direction, and it would just and so I. I didn't I couldn't actually read like the last twenty percent of a lot of these letters. Because because that's what happened to her. So you find stuff like that, which is really cool, but also really frustrating if you're trying to do your historical research. Yeah, it almost seems like you would be looking for one thing and you come across something else. That's interesting. That's correct. Yeah I think that's right and one of the things that you get trained to do as a as as a historian is It is is really to let the sources speak to you, you may have a set of ideas about a particular topic, but if the archival source material is telling you something else then you're obligated to listen. And to to change your preconceptions, hypotheses whatever in order to recognize what these sources are really saying. I guess must be hard I've always struggled a little bit with the autobiographies particularly. People running for office SORTA like. Like I can almost see it coming. There I started to read on by Ted. Kennedy, and US God. It was just like as I gazed out of my window. Like You. Already lost me guy. I'm done. That so. But I guess if you really respect, somebody really admires somebody. You're doing research and you start to find some things that are not so respectable and laudable. I thought that You, you've already brought up. Robert Kiro a couple of times. I have always thought that doing a biography is It's it's just not something I think. I can do I think it's really easy to write a biography because the the narrative organizes itself right. There's a beginning a middle and there's an end. So that are pretty easy. But I think it's really hard to write a good biography because it is so tempting I think just to get lost in the weeds. You have this all this material so when you read a bad biography. What you're getting is you know what somebody had for lunch? On Tuesday January thirteenth, and you just don't care, but this person was writer has found the stuff in the archive and they don't WanNa. Throw it away, so I think. There are lots and lots of biographies out there, but the but the number of really good biographies I think is, it's actually pretty small in my opinion. Yeah I guess I'm always suspicious of agendas with anything. With the movies or even fiction or you know, just don't come to me with an agenda although I guess is very difficult I, you know we all have our agendas. Yeah, this is one of the things I think I work on with my students. I think that we have a a a a kind of conventional understanding that we can be objective as star. And I think. You know that's pretty naive. Notion we all bring a set of interpretive lenses, and so. What you really need to do is to be honest both with yourself, but also with your reader about what those lenses all and. And I think the you can't. You can't really do objective history. That's not that's not really the goal. The goal is to do honest history. Very interestingly, putting it being honest about where you're coming from Yup yeah. So the reason I came across. Your work is We did a podcast on elite business schools. Eating. For lack of a better word international students that do to Kobe nineteen. You know like some guy from Brazil. He couldn't come Cornell University wouldn't even refund is closet of two thousand dollars? Cornell University as Many tens of millions of dollars in endow Vince and all that. and. Then you know we were talking about before we started podcast the whole online thing there get out of jail. Free Card seem to be like well. You can just take the courses online. And one student from by said like I'm not paying hundred seventy. Grand Watch Youtube Channel. It's lake. Basically business schools seems like ninety percent of. Its networking is meeting people's internships to never gonna get that online, yeah! Go ahead. I'm sorry. No I, I think you're spot on. This is what the I'd never thought about it this. Why do I guess too because I don't I didn't go to business saliva about it particularly, but what cotton I was, you said. Your quote was in the vein of during recessions. Business schools actually see an uptick in your enrollment, and during good times they don't so I was wondering if you could I mean this podcast called working experience, behold like learn something from it. Why is that? So that's So I I, noticed this started to happen in in the recession of that started in the early nineteen seventies, so before that business schools on college campuses. Everybody knew that the worst students went there. If you. If you flunked out of the Spanish department, you went to the business school. As late as the nineteen seventies as lay this, let's say the late sixties for sure God yes, when a certain person might have been attending a certain wharton, business. School the The worst students on campus and everybody knew this right. Open joke, an open secret The recession and the seventies is when business schools got a lot more competitive because they were getting a lot more applicants, and the the you know the credential, the qualifications of these applicants all went up their test scores there as all that sort of stuff, so all of a sudden what people began to notice? was that the the economic anxiety that the recession. flation nineteen seventy s recession was causing. Business, schools seen to be the safest harbor in that storm. And it I think it has something to do with the fact that that's also the moment when that the the world of high paying. Blue Collar employment. is really shrinking. You know that that sort of de industrial rust.

C. they gonna rerun the American Pharoah Kentucky Derby the twenty fifteen but they're all all boy they're doing something really cool with the Kentucky Derby well explained that coming up in the six o'clock hour as well but in the meantime I think it is time for us to this is all a little thing that we like to call press relief because you don't have to watch the press conferences because we get to watch the press conferences I don't know if it gets to the right thing but will that's what it is all rights as so Meryl Lightfoot to join the police superintendent David Brown today's a new guy to do it out of the opening of two additional operation areas across the city it is a part of a restructuring effort to move more officers and detectives back into the neighborhoods and communities that they serve and well we'll hear you policing neighbourhood policing work in the city as importers reforms are our work is far from over Michael everyone here everyone here is to make sure that Chicago is the safest big city in America today's measures are just one more step in that effort putting us in a greater position of for our dedicated police officer to do the work they love and putting our city much closer to being a safe and secure place everyone can be proud to call home yeah I mean I I get that we got to do something that I'm I'm not gonna criticize this yet because I don't know if it'll work or won't work but okay let's let's go for it city officials also said the police officers will be better positioned to mobilize respond quickly to scenes providing a more robust as act as a public safety presence in communities that need it most the interim superintendent took an outsider's view of CPB and saw a disconnect he saw a disconnect between patrol officers detectives and units that focus on gangs guns and drugs this meant there was a disconnect between those who respond to calls those working to hold openers accountable and those who conduct special operations the new area structure breaks down the silos and creates greater accountability as each area now reports directly to a deputy chief right I guess that's right I suppose that makes some sort of a sense right there and then the mayor back with she said she was asked during a press conference if you would consider shutting down the CTA during the overnight to deep clean the buses and trains are doing in New York you know there's been a lot of conversation over the course of his last six to eight weeks about public transportation public transportation is vital to our social workers it is vital to our first responders in our health care workers they rely upon the buses and the trains and many of them don't have cars so public transportation is there means a lot to be mobile I'm in a challenging environment there are people that work the overnight shift so closing down especially during that critical time period for song would mean that would be the difference between the Mabel being able to actually get to work or not and not everybody has the resources to be able to call up it right here that's true but New York has the exact same problem exceeded New York has a problem in greater numbers than we actually have the problem here so I you know I aids I'm I think you got to do something I don't think it's going to be I don't think it's possible to do this without without it in terms given the public transportation open can be almost impossible do it unless we have the sense that we're safe getting on that that it has been it has been cleaned and I think it is a rather relative short term problems many we won't we won't be able to maintain that keep that up for ever and ever and ever this is just about opening the economy back up because people are missing this point everybody's talking about just over the economy and open the economy have well he can't just open the economy up people won't go out to the economy could open up every store you want right now is governor can totally reversed course here a bit of every store and there would still not be the rush to save these businesses and a lot of businesses would lose out because they have to hire back employees including in some employees in the restaurant industry there's employees making more money on unemployment and they were making in the restaurants and they're not gonna go back I mean this is a far more complicated thing this isn't just like all the government shut me down this is not what that's all about all right Ben Bradlee joins us on the other side but first let's find out more map it was having on the roadways.

just happened here because we've lost in two weeks about thirty percent of the value of the Dow Jones industrial average in just a little under that in terms of the standard and poor's five hundred we're bringing you Chris Evert that that Chris Evert hello Chris Evert at Chris Evert is financial planner and president Everitt wealth solutions and I cannot imagine Chris how your phone has been ringing off the hook from people like my mother who are calling everybody at every moment to try to figure out exactly what it is that they're going to do about about the you know they're there whether it's their stock portfolio or they're worried about the four oh one K.'s they're worried about their their insurance portfolios you know if you have life insurance sometimes that's that's invested it it it it it it's just it's a panicky panicky moment isn't it no it's not in January Evert wealth solutions D. really our clients who are close to retirement especially the ones that had like low risk tolerance now what even though there was plenty of support for more economic acceleration right like everything was really doing great right we did wage growth was awesome low unemployment just great jobs numbers my little ladies and was supported by test not only cycle data but I just felt like it was time now did I know that this corona virus was going to create such havoc no I did not I wish I did but I don't have that kind of panic in my practice we actually had clients calling to ask me if it was time to jump into the market well I don't I hear that I hear that two people saying well now and and you know Dow at twenty one thousand whatever it is it that that's a good time to get in because this could be incredible value in the market it it's true I mean it just really depends too on your risk appetite if you're a little nervous well then maybe to dollar cost into the sale that's going on it's an amazing sale it's going to go back up because what happens when you buy on sale row well I never have bought on sale so have you as I go and I say what is the most amount you will charge me for this and I will purchase it as how that goes I I want to get some phone calls in here two three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred you got specific questions about what you should do with it with the your money right now let us know because I know that's the other big debts other than catching this is that's what everybody else is completely freaked out about because it's almost like a two prong thing we're all hysterical about that but the possibility and I don't mean really hysterical I mean just in our own minds everybody has fear about that so you just can't if you're paying attention to it you do have a certain amount of concern let's put it that way and the market is as it is the other side of it it's sort of the rational and irrational fears that combining right there so it if you were to if your list is to since we before we get phone calls up here let's talk a little bit about places you might want to invest if the if there is such a sale going on here Chris Evert well do you know billing Exxon Mobil for example because you know oil has really impacted the markets as well but it's trading at twenty ten prizes two thousand and ten so there's a sale for you now having said that you know out there Russia and Saudi they're still not playing nice with one another oil may still go a little bit older all lower why not dollar cost average into something that's tied to explain what that means sure so if you could buy Exxon Mobil today for a price that was trading at in two thousand and ten that's a nice sale price right and then you can start buying shares of something like that and ride it back up because of this too will pass we are not going to stay in this pandemic crisis for ever do you know I look at a lot of different information and you can look at the negatives because look at the positive and everything in between Gilead sciences has a new experimental corona virus drugs and they've even got kudos vote of confidence from the World Health Organization it's the one drug right now that they think may have some positive impact on drugs we just talked about this with the doctor actually just within the last hour so that's it but it'll be that's gonna take some time but this will be a time to get in if you're betting on them being right well it's not only them I mean there's other firms that are doing it too so but they got the nod from the WHL China started human trials with the drug so I'm expecting that we're going to start seeing some pot more positive information and it's not that I'm putting my head in the sand or being Pollyanna I just think that we have way too much negative information out there when you look back on all the other black swan events that happened in the market the swine flu is killing people of all ages that's not happening here you know it's the vulnerable population that's getting impacted the older parts of our population but if you're healthy and you take just pretty normal precautions wash your hands cover your models you know you're okay well I will see what that we'll see what that looks like here I think that the issue is going to be as the as these weeks go on you've seen this interruption in business right you see the interruption of that then in the entertainment industry and and and the public events and things like that and that's gonna and travel and that's going to have an impact on people on the pocketbooks of those companies and that's going to have them have a the potential for a drag chute on the economy I want to talk to you about that Chris Evert on the other side of this quick break Chris Evert is who we're talking to she is from Everitt wealth solutions and she has answers for you at three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred if you have concerns about your wealth your portfolio here if anything that's a four oh one K.'s your insurance plans anything like that that right now is top of mind to you three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred or you can Texas there as well first let's check

you know that all these politicians they call it off however they go for like you know year year and a half there will be people there are some people who gonna start thinking about running for president they go to Iowa two years out they do an Iowa straw poll in twenty twenty two where they're they're like oh Hey you I wonder who's going to come over to our state and bring all of their

they have to do this thing where it's like you call and you get to go to it the they literally there's a percent Jeff to get to like thirty five percent of the Iowa population in your party whatever it happens to be and I'm gonna guess is probably more Republicans and Democrats in Iowa but you know whatever that number is eight steps tens of thousands of people that these politicians all have to shake the hands of the touch of that did like stand to get a selfie with him yup Penniman had whatever it is you have to do that's what they do and if you don't do that is that what you're never going to win Iowa because everybody wants to see you in the and if you don't see them yet to see at least one person from the family and the because the baby and do all that and then we're all going to go to a room in February and wrong and stand in the corner and decide who were gonna wanna hail as the next president or the next nominee for our party so that's what we're gonna do I know like what in that yeah it's it is so antiquated it is this is this is before they had to the at the wheel base we were barely on horses when he came over this idea and now it is the twenty first century you know you can have a vote you do what everybody else does you just don't campaign in the state run TV commercials and show up in and press the flesh like all these other politicians to go to a diner and I got plenty of diners and one we were that Kevin was there with us last time in the in twenty sixteen this is a lot of pork fried stuff in beer now they just don't stand there I remember walking into some coffee shop the morning of the caucus last year and there's ricksantorum standing there and it wasn't as a running training but Rick Santorum won the Iowa caucus years ago but it took him two weeks to be able to clear in the winter because they were screwed up that this couldn't be dumber All I Want to say about this but the question now is what happened and the democratic and and and one of the other things I have noticed is that the chairman of the Democratic Party of temperance got to be found he's like he's at he's right now he's is I'm some super secret mission in Brazil or somewhere I mean is is he wants out of this whole thing and the president taking a victory lap like it didn't have to do anything you know the president didn't really I mean it's been working hard defending himself in the impeachment thing right by don't stop and in doing this and that yeah I mean you do you found all they know what's going on there he they have this one just fell into his lap

I. P. but as they call it transportation for the governor so it is it's just said of a bitter irony to all of this so we'll talk about that and also the investigation what goes on from there Ali Meyer are she is our work Washington correspondent and she can talk about what's happening in DC today cattle held the defense presents defenses up is it his lawyers are defending him and also interesting Victoria tensing who's one of his attorneys has been up defending Rudy Giuliani calling America's Merrin and he was not at that he was at it an American hero before he started supporting the president so we'll find out what that was all about and this all come in this house and governor Pritzker has announced that he sees no reason to pause the program that according to the secretary of state's office accidentally registered non citizens to vote you know I don't which was in fact the then knock on the whole motor voter thing like when you go when you register to get her to to re up your driver's license or you try to get your first driver's license automatically registered to you to vote at though the location of the address that your license send you and this motor voter had been a big political football for years and Republicans are saying listen this is going to be a way to make it easier for people who who shouldn't be able to vote with your the bed yeah non citizens to be able to vote and Democrats all no no no no no it's just to make it easier for people don't don't you want people to vote did you want people to be able to exercise their franchise as Americans and then the next thing you know this is what this is what happened actually mixing nobody with that happened in surprisingly it relatively shorter so this is as to the governor's stepping into something right there to say Hey I know it's gonna be just fine they fix the problem so I think there's more to be learned about that at all come to life plus will be later on mark McKinnon from the circus on show time is going to talk about what happened Washington also in Iowa and we've got to chime cast to talk a little bit later on about the swear off you heard in the news between Megan fox and that Conway kid the young challenger but is it is it gonna say did you say make a box it while Kim five you know I'm so caught in the Grammys I just I don't even know what to do can she sing I don't know but you do others it's in a celebrity Kim fox Megan fox is not running for against although I bet you some right now she went if she racked that's how I feel about that so we'll talk a little bit about that that's the jackass was in that meeting today that that Tribune editorial board meeting where the two and a half for each other so we'll we'll discuss all of that all right okay and medical doctors are here to tell you but whether Wuhan is going to kill you or seasonal depression is bad for it we we know is bad for you but what can you do about it because January turns out a lot of medical experts are seeing more and more and more cases of.

"Roe Conn showed doctor Willie Wilson is joining us on the super celebrity hotline from parts unknown and I liked it with we love having you in studio we love having you here but I know we had a bit of a scheduling snafu today so I would like to know this because you are working on a state piece of legislation for reparations for the descendants of slaves now yeah why my question is we should not be a national thing that a state thing well a row listen good but I did talk to him but listed is a national danger did you would be a little bit about it passed this year to Congress by Brian Bradley will get to set all right and so if we can you imagine we discussed organized state by state okay we gotta get some and and get it done now right away so you were going to help me with the means has his so what you're what you would need then be trying to do is your state by state to try to have a an amendment to the constitution I mean what we need to states to do well only when it when it is it is it represents of descendants played me and this year they did me in that look we gotta find a way he then turns out the contracting job and equal opportunity here that represent the tax act people even had to pay and I'll get anything in return thanks summit date that could be creating called violent you know and people going to jail to miss me and I'm about to exact privatized prison system now that would need to be and got to be stopped and so what happened is that if you wait seven national get done we need to try to be working on interstate Chicago guy hi Valerie then a lot of places around the United States and that we need to try to find ways to stop it is some kind of what you know right but all right so you would say preferred dig it turns a contract to somebody that like a not just to women and minority owned business but it on top of that a business that would be owned by descendants of of former slaves would get priority over the other women and minority owned business kind of contract let's you know it it it it it it to try to stop so you had to really understand what we come up from here I really and did you plan a day like that dissenters late and got on at the end is to I am a victim of sharecropping as late now wait a thirteen year down south and didn't get paid when you're when I was kid my plan by parents and things like that didn't get paid and and and says it didn't get paid I will lose their poise and glass yeah I got a chance to make it work hot and so did Dan really like personal but me because of the fact that there are people that didn't get they put a workday dined tartan corn sugar and everything else and so what happened is that they don't have attention welfare are they only is some already died and and those type of things that and if so what I try to do is that we we give away a you know a lot of money into the community you know what I need to send this back up a little bit because Willie Wilson you remember he ran for mayor he ran for president I see is on point ran for governor the there is but but your your store your life story is one of the most inspirational American stories one can hear which is like you just point out you grow up at the end a sharecropper family you worked in a sickly as a slave when you're a little kid you're able to get out of that was in Florida you're able to get out yeah ended up working at McDonald's you ended up then owning a McDonald's you then ended up owning multiple make downs you became a multi multi multi millionaires result of that then you sold that you went into another business which make you even more multi millions of dollars so I mean you're you're an amazing story that we always talk about you know that that is an American dream story that that the people help for themselves but I don't know but I what I don't understand is what the economics of year I get that in your business got you'll know numbers I don't understand what the what ultimately the economics are going to be here or how this actually gets applied fairly so that if in fact people have been disadvantaged those those who have been absent in fact those who have been disadvantaged by being the children of slaves are the descendants of slaves Winchell we're trying to all that yeah I mean how what what what's the math there how many people who gets paid what I get paid I don't understand what you really put it to you this way the state of Illinois it does about seven to eight eight billion dollars was a contracted services stated I don't know I represent fourteen percent of African American it's a descendant of play not everybody has to send this late but you know there there isn't up like that kit yeah date eleven and one half of percent back into the community that Karadzic ghetto and call people to to robin day then they get put in jail and economically speaking yeah right this deal was saying Hey look wait a minute we fourteen percent of the state will play in textiles and then when I get enough back so so it created now prime within our community so my economic prosperity away we have our citizens school closed its example in Chicago we are while I don't know how many miles to get to school so we don't have that we don't have technology that fuse clue that it let out all right right when I had it we don't have three things like that to take that we can get a job so that generation in a generator to it already thank all right at American descent of slate right right so we have time we don't want them so if you can take and signed a minor sanctuary cities which by the way I think it twenty sixteen and twenty sixteen that was set to seven billion dollars I can you can you hold on one thing for me because I get it he'd take quick time out here my relate to this but I want to I want to come back I just wanted to hold at all okay it's doctor Willie Wilson right there we'll be back with him just on the first floor in laughter we'll try to explain what's happening on the roads and in.

think but I believe that the sponsors are the same right to buy that go fifteen minutes could save you fifty percent or more on car insurance about that I've heard that sometimes they do it nice yeah we got they've now there do they have a new and they have a new tagline they do yeah for the trying to get the the gecko to to understand the tagline I don't you know I think it's so funny why do we have to the gecko when we still have the the funniest commercials on television from them why do we have to I don't know they do produce some great once back to the one with the the the traffic guy that's like a body builder is like go to the left they're all good I mean this is what is one of the things I mean if people say well you know highly creative people said they did yeah sent to general but there are a lot of critics of commercial commercial critics who say that the funny or the commercial the less effective it is because you're watching a commercial in a lot of people just remember the commercial they don't remember the brand right you want something that's a little bit more now showing you the thing that's why those direct response commercials you know did you see I'm deep cable they work so well you know when they're they they keep showing you something what a guy because god they're doing the whole sequel thing where they're bringing back all the great commercials and I can be right there out the year all that's awesome yes that's excited for that yes now I will say that we like to think that I know I would I'm I'm I'm dribbling the ball here a little bit just to make sure that we have the right sponsor being mentioned we do okay thank you for the press Jesse to newer is going to join us from from Washington coming up in just a few minutes about what's what is happening in Washington I gotta tell you I was watching and listening to some of this today and I I have to say that it was so annoying yeah I can't even stand to listen to the whole thing happening I hear one second like mute because and it's it is another city yeah yes there's a question but the other piece of this it's amazing is it's like they're all on the same trip Democrats and once you're privileged another script and then no one's giving any kind of quarter nobody actually and that that has any sort of emotion about what they're what they're doing here it's almost a divorce proceeding you know it but I feel fine and it's and it is really hard really really hard to listen to and I and I I'm I'm just I'm comfortable with the whole thing now so exhausted yeah I mean I don't they we know what the outcome is going to be and we know what both sides are gonna say and this is just another part of the above political experience can you know this is going to be a political issue and probably not for the entire political year but I'd say for the spring well it's like watching a sporting event you have the answer the final score exactly what where it's going yeah but with guys in suits yelling getting yes and you can always tell which is which you know you can you don't have to know you don't actually when they say and we recognize by general from Georgia you know where that's going right and then and then the with with the gentle lady from New Jersey okay I know where that's going and it's and then and then it sort of you you got like it in the cell there was one guy earlier today sell it just like Gilbert Godfrey what yes really and I thought now if I'm the Democrats I don't have that guy doing the thing what a Dick we see you like this I don't think that's helping I really don't I would just start laughing that is a funny joke yeah choose your you know I would I would have I put your best people up for this not a great selection yeah now I know that we Republicans are doing that where they send they did they did they basically you keep throwing the ball to you know one of the one of their more highly rated if you will congressman to anyway it's just it's it's too much that's all I wanted to hear it's too much I cannot wait for this to be over Edward this today fine and then we got a couple of weeks we don't worry about it you think about Christmas and I have a I actually have a guide to talking politics at Christmas dinner I need to just been put out so how did it differ how to how to basically just defuse I think everybody can use

"And what was it like for you to collaborate now with your sons on the second book that Double Dangerous Book it was it was great. I mean the first book was just my brother. We're working in the shed and we didn't know if anyone would like the book. I I hope people enjoy this book in the same way because it's partly the things that I didn't manage to put in the first book and wanted to just there wasn't enough room also all the things that people are suggesting suggested since the most of it has come from my son's coming to me and saying oh you've got to do this is my school sold. The paper frog and Mesa thing jumped off my son's name. Greek legends told me that he enjoys and we all went to see a particular speaker the Best Wallstrom head it was at El Alamein and are and then he was interested in when American planes came over and blew it to pieces and his prison was and he could have escaped but he decided to go back and help help people that for instance the best thing the best full story that's told and it's almost so we put in there because it was it was all new and they don't need you telling having. Yeah it's awesome. I I you know obviously I have a copy and the double dangerous vodka and I. I gave it to my oldest son. WHO's thirteen and the other day? He pulled a Ah Different Chess Open. We always like just ear and I asked him where he got that he said he got it from the book so I was like. Oh that's testing. That's exactly the sort of is. We said eight two on the first book but of course I had I had well for trump and I had to divorce telling me that they if they only had that sons a couple of we can a month they would get the book and use a couple of things from and that was a nice thing but an awful lot of them. I have some from this. You both for their sense. Also then they'll so that's the husbands or something like that. I had a lot of people with their husband. s they got married so they were all sons but they sort of felt they would enjoy the the basic idea the book that's all you can also really. Yeah definitely and one thing. That's definitely different. I mean I guess that I have three boys and then a girl and one thing for me is the way that I disciplined my a kid. I definitely changed my lifestyle when it came to my daughter. So what. What type of this area are you? Dan as I said earlier. I'm slow motion. Should I have proposed because I think I think as you get older you realize oh you realize you've got more time you realize that something's just don't matter answer as much as I should I I to some extent I I if I have to I will. I'll raise my voice for the kids and stunned with them. I've got a good stunned voice I can. I can stop them doing things if I have to. But yeah it is. It's still difficult for me to take something serious. You know. Suppose because I know that it doesn't really isn't that amazing. I'll I'll do my best poem he's been to. The guns are different impulsive over to my my wife and I know that's a that's a terrible rebel things scientists. You know I I might try and critics on something that frankly very strange. I don't even understand in two days but I just I understand what happened with that. Companies actually went off the rails. I I understand the psyche of boys better than my sixteen year. Old DOSA run. Uh when I'm trying to explain a mistake to get nyquil kissed my my daughter's only five so I'm really trying to callous my mindset for when that all comes to me here goes you know I yeah. I had them Cape at the house if we had loaded. conquers host chestnuts on the the Signs Out Looking Beautiful Colin Brown and China. And I'm thinking about those on and he said Oh yes. I used to collect those when I was a kid. Unless if you ever played conquers then you said what you mean play focus. I don't and what the heck did you. What did you connecting for them? If you weren't paying the but the point if you don't teach this stuff and it just doesn't it doesn't get told it isn't it it doesn't magically Boeing's type magic do you know how to tie knots and do woodwork. Joints fix things when they break in the house. I have to learn and I think that's I have to learn that. They go to that and they need to be held up as well if you look at Some of the finest in history who lost their fathers actually early age again. You know we still too a fast ruthless ambition. That might have been good for making. Wasn't that great for themselves and it sounds just people. Don't think that people can't come. I mean he lost his father at the age of how Eleven Julius Caesar lost his from the age of. I think it was about thirteen. I once thanks to my son that if if I needed I need to have if he thought he would go out and come to the world. I think the best thing I could do is drop dead right now. Expect team at the time but the point is if you saw the recent round he can shotgun goes version of masculinity which involves patients for example. And my dad was a very patient man that he was trying to explain to me. I wasn't getting it and it was near Bit Nights. I'm not the thing has to be done the following day and I was practically chance he was enormously patient. Tend to protect me through it again and again and again you like. I'm not told me something. Valuable tastes missing the wealth. We all know that. Yeah and we definitely see Especially over here Wherever there is this fatherless problem problem we always see a big rise in in crime drug rates pregnancy the whole bit and it's usually Wherever this location is it usually has like a sixty five percent or higher percentage percentage of fatherless homes? Yes I mean that's it. You know it's funny my my mom. It's not funny but my mother reminded me years ago. That one of the nasty he problems in concentration camps senile guns. She said them you know. Because even the the West Mile Gods from the stories of people who sometimes could be appeal to they might give you a square of chocolate. They might smile but the women. Oh my goodness there was nothing there was no. It was none of that kind of attal. And it's it's it's a big part of the mile psyching and it's something we need to promote. Because we've answered it as you say you get kind of polarized mail. Who's all about the violence the gang and all the rest of it he forms his own goal muffles in the wrong place because they look for role models and they will take them anywhere they can get them? And I talked to the mile the male psyche that ability ability to laugh at something terrible ability to be kind and to make a stupid joke. Even when it's a a really dunk thing that's happening I mean that's that's Michael Pasta for my own sake. I'm became with this. Yeah definitely and and since you do all these things in the books. Have you ever considered doing something like a youtube channel or have your kids ever asked you. Hey why don't we get stuff on Youtube and show people how to do it. I haven't got around to thinking about video stuff. No I mean you know. Maybe maybe I wouldn't rule it out 'til play but I'm happy with Piper. I'm happy the end of the day with paper and pen and doubling rather than a screened green. I use it I can use a word processor. Reputaion I use the Internet and it's not useful but as a positive me kind of a purist and likes to just sit in. Oh I could turn pages. Yeah I was GONNA ask you to. Are you still an avid reader. And what what kind of books do you read today. I read all the time. Every you know usually seems like detective fiction. I'm Leon for example but I also read a lot of history. I mean I'm doing a lot on the ancient Greeks and she's fantastic events. I was reading something that the other day and they said I think it was considered easy said something like in two thousand years people will think that was more important than Sparta. Uh because acid spill so these amazing buildings on the sponsors didn't but the reason the sponsors didn't just because as I said we all the walls we are the monuments they they didn't need to build wolves because no one can come and attack them because they were. And that's that's amazing that stand with me. You know this is two thousand years now back on us and you know what will they remember things with disappeared. But that doesn't mean that it is important and that it wasn't important back. Then yeah it's fascinating stuff on reader myself. I read at least a book a week. And you know I go back and forth between like different styles philosophy history and then biographies and just got done reading You know Nicole Tesla's autobiography and a couple of books on him so I was able to. You know it's amazing. How so many people when you have these conversations they never heard of some of these people that you you read about? It feels like it's lost a lot. Well there's always that sense that you can never keep up with generation loses base in game something the other so the Gen would Nolan's just changes like if like ball rolling through the generations but at the same time I think that stories certain stories on important enough to be remembered I used to. They actually say that to my kids. History was the stamp the bits we needed to remember with all the rest lost because we tend not remember how many times I king if he ever brushes teeth or wants to talk but we do remember the key battle where he fought some morning tonight in snow. That's what counts in February eighteen. Sixty bucks I mean. The king who was six four which is like a blooming Goliath in those remember those details because he was like off to his father had been killed and he was in rates all day and that's the kind McCain needed to rest in spine because you could be mine the caucus some of the Lesser known aspects of it. I think we'll keep the good stuff because that's what that's what we have okay. Yeah that's awesome and I love the ball but both of them here when where can my listeners. Working they find a copy of the books and Are you planning on a third book. You know I wasn't when I still to this one but we came up with the tonsils the double dangerous like a day and then of course you know couldn't help I think the triple dangerous but we'll have to say the only thinking about that it'll be I think this month when it'll it'll be asking unusual outlet of course on the Internet and Should be anywhere any good books out there. It is the book in Digital Printing in any book as well or just the heart at the moment there are no plans for that. I resisted. That said he is sort of fairly obvious. Reason dishonest to be doing an e book version of the original dangerous book. I just do that so years and then discovered that someone had was the pirates. You did so. That wasn't evoke out there anyway. So that Kinda heckler. He must have put out very frustrating. That's the US bank to the conversation.

I think it's definitely overlooked today a lot of times when I tell people that I have four kids they look at me like I got six heads and they're like wow you know it's unheard of today in a sense like yeah I I get that as well but then I I also see when other people coming into a house in St as always noisy. I've got three dogs as well. So it's always he doesn't a rabbit. There's a Wisconsin. There's always someone champion and so we still singing all telling us you know telling a joke of a story and I am not that lifing grew up in a house. It was much quieter. I think I always wanted to go and tumble around. I think it's good for them. It's good for me to think spans myself. You gotta remember. I'm awesome most of my life spent where I am at this moment. Talking the ethic I'm staring out across the valley which is very quiet and You know it could be potentially but it's nice to have the the the life and the The shopping yeah very well. What type of sports and your kids into growing up here? Well my son's context blackbelt. That's one of the things we did it affect any. I did it for a few years until I tore a hamstring Monday cast and broke the metric awesome awesome my foot all within a period of about four months and I thought the time I want before I can't walk. I should stop this but he carried on because you know to be young aged just heaven S. He don't because he gets a couple of injury. He also plays rugby and admittedly he did break like during that. We've got some metal work inside there. We're wondering how to take it away but I mean this is something I think always need to. They need to test that courage If you just leave it in the box in never tested the toll you never. You know what you're capable of and I it's important I said anything when I was sparring in Taco. I'm Debbie and I'm sitting. There exhausted exhausted to the point of feeling like I was got don and the instructor came and said like you're standing here with your hands on your knees. He said it will take it will hurt you a little bit more to stand up straight and look the next competitive in the join the union. I going to win. If you sit there with your hands on your knees breathing. Like a bellows. They will know they're going to win. And he was write little moments like that little lessons just testing around courage and forcing funny. I what he runs around important. I mean Mike else do roller hockey. They all do that together. In a local school and You know decide. They will play netball cricket and everything else and it's an important part of life. I guess it's It helps you to get strong and get out to the summit. Yeah very cool if you could please hit me If you could just take a minute here to hit my listeners a little bit about your background and what you do. My background is I it's sort of unusual. I mean my dad was born in Nineteen twenty-three. His Dad was born in eighteen fifty so he had my father when he was seventy three and it means when boiled fail hitchcock came to England. My grandfather went to say his wild west show So just two generations. We go back. I think it's a hundred and sixty nine years. And that means that I want a lot of old fashioned books in their houses and things like one hundred one chemical amusements points. I wrote historical fiction. That was my main coverage. you see some Genghis Khan and quite stories from the past. I wanted to do when my son was born. I wanted to do a book of that sort. I sort of annual things to do things to know unusual secret knowledge and I put it together in about two thousand and sixty thousand seven and and did really well turned out a lot of people out there who cares about executives things so I write that with my brother in this one. I've been my two sons Inside the younger one would come home and he'd say I signed today and I could sign across the close behind the teachers back and say hi to anyone and little things that he won't fulltime folding a PICA struggle to escape and I realized there's an awful lot of things I want to put into another bunny different stories accomplish and different things to do. And that takes me up up to Pretty much spokane threat. Not Yeah Yeah I I love. The books are going to jump into that in a second here but you know being that your family goes back so many years what. What was the experience like for you when you first came to bother? How did that change your perspective on life? Well I I mean my son. I was expecting the first time they haven't been a girl onto onto my my lunch. I think ten years I was pretty confident that You know I was going to be a week. We didn't we didn't we didn't on breath the package before Christmas but it changed range me. It changed me completely. I was before then and I was on how long it goes on twenty eight. I was twenty six. I was I think I hadn't fully grown you know I wasn't. I wasn't mature man. I was working and I was hoping down the job and I I was married but I I had another growing to being a father a different role for me. Anthony potent one it turns out. I was less patient until I had kids. For example I would lose my temper and put myself through something and that's something that I want to completely relaxed me but it's something I can tell enormously now I don't Oh my temporary case I never I never swear in front of them or anything of that in kind of swear. What does it do but I keep it to myself? Because when I'm with them I try to be the best man I can possibly be and that is. I think that's A. That's what a good song that should be trying to do. And then if I you know usually in front of it the best you can hopeful. Yeah very well said and the response sponsor. Your first book was overwhelming there and I think the best part of your books is that it does places the old school boyhood stuff without the technology which is so prevalent today Did your kids did. They grow up of playing the video. Games you kind of handle it. Technology them well I mean we. I think there's probably more evidence now than we have been. The first came out that the screen time has to be limited. I mean it's not just the things you can see online bitterly. How long you spend staring at the screen it? It's not a good thing and I the the same time. I'm aware that this book it can never can never replace the Internet. He's on things to do as well as but yes. I must've been if I had if I I had to suggest something for the kids to do. They made a bone marrow and branch out and trying to shoot something but if it sticks now it's nine closely whatever it is crossed cheap it'll just takes Spills away your hours and you don't get much for accessible salmon frustration. It's always seemed to me that boys in particular you don't have to be men that need to be shown they look around for role models and if they're not toss it like an end up huge gaps in their knowledge so books like this saw this you know like they just basically people trying to pass on that good stuff over the field. I mean the the APPs don't really do that. I just WANNA say oh. Yeah no I couldn't agree with you more than I'm glad to see your books. You know that they are getting the play that they are getting. Just because there is an attack I feel like on the family life life and and there's definitely a fatherless problem that we have here in the United States and it just seems like there's an attack on masculinity all the way around and it's great to see something out here hear. That years is geared towards allowing boys to be boys volley grow up here That was that was the plan for this. This'll be celebrating. What ways particularly really liked doing you know I have two doses? We give some of the things together as a family when you look at the list of subjects like having to make you a tree house oil picking unlocks examples. That was something I was a kid I was. I really wanted to know how to do it somehow. I never learned so I put it in the chapter. It's not really so much and we'll just they went to fascinated. I said I could bought. The Rubik's cube is my son. Wasn't we'RE NOT GONNA chapter in hereabouts advice some fighting mental example. That is very specifically. Because when I was a kid I really we want you to know how to how to self defense but it has to take a punch and so on the thing I think is important for them tonight. You can't do everything we've on cookie. Count change the whole world but maybe you can just turn to the phone. Yeah definitely I agree and I I bring on a lot of navy seals on the show here and I love their mindset of a Ms Schindler where it's like. They make themselves comfortable being uncomfortable and they really challenge themselves and I think that their books are awesome for generations to read here. Yes yes it is. uh-huh pump in the mail sake. I love of competence. It almost doesn't matter what the subject tastes but we want to be competent about it might be working with hands. It might lucky becoming experts at that particular subject but as a satisfaction in that but I do think we lose track of that in schools attempted three boys and goes just the same and in many ways. That's a good thing. In some ways it. We know Bassett apparel boys like to become experts. Something's but competent as unload things like to collect skills. And that's that's that's a good thing that's positive it means does to you know. Men are good at a huge range of ordinarily competent at a huge range of different things. And there's nothing without it. It's it's one of those things learned from the boy to be a man. It's a good thing yeah definitely. I think it's something to be embraced her shore. And what was it like for you to collaborate. Now we your sons on the Second Book Double Dangerous Book..
