Connor Farley of Truvius writes, Fundamentals -driven valuation frameworks for crypto assets are emerging both within and across different sectors of the crypto market. The pending regulatory approval and institutional offering of vehicles for exposure to mega -cap assets like Bitcoin and Ethereum is an important first step toward broad -based investor adoption. But the next step involves unlocking broad, diversified exposure to all sectors within the crypto economy. It is critical not to overlook the fundamental value of blockchain -powered technologies that are driving new business sectors like decentralized financial services and smart contract platforms. Cutting -edge investors should develop investment strategies for these sectors. Market commentators often generalize non -mega -cap crypto assets as altcoins, primarily owing to the nascency of the asset class and the learning curve associated with its mosaic of use -cases. However, this generalization overshadows the significant opportunities for data -driven relative value comparisons both within and across various sectors and assets other than Bitcoin and Ethereum. For example, while news coverage converged on Bitcoin and Ethereum ETF speculation this week, crypto assets within the CoinDesk computing and smart contract sectors including Chainlink, Cosmos, Polygon, and Solana, which all have circulating market capitalizations in the billions of dollars, meaningfully outperformed the two heavy mega -caps. From a fundamentals perspective, over the last week, Polygon saw healthy network usage and stronger centralized exchange flows activity relative to peers. Solana and LINK exhibited strong price momentum and were also aided by relatively stronger activity from software developers contributing to these projects over the quarter. Like what you're hearing?

Brought to you by the loan experts I trust Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Joining us now is Sean Davis CEO and co -founder of The Federalist. Sean I'm tired of losing. I'm sick of losing. I'm a big football fan. It's my weakness. I know I get a lot of hate mail for it. Oh it's woke. I don't care and one of the things about football is if you lose you get fired. At the RNC though if you lose you remain. Explain this to me Sean. I don't know it seems like that's almost a fact of politics anymore. Is it the watching these debates for example. Why on earth are people who hate us and hate people who read us and follow us and hate what we believe. Why are we letting them run these debates and attack our people. It would almost be like giving the Yankees front office the ability to interview anyone who's going to go and play for the Red Sox or like letting the Redskins and I still call them the Redskins and I always will. Letting the Redskins coach like pick who's going to play for the Cowboys. It's so dumb and yet we seem to do it debate after debate and year after year and I simply don't understand it at all. Yeah and so I want to play a piece of tape here. So Ronna McRomney was asked about her involvement in Virginia and it's always deflection. It's blaming other side and Larry O 'Connor who's a total superstar. I really like Larry. He's been in the movement for quite some time. He's so calmly and beautifully asked this question was like hey why wasn't the RNC more involved. His reaction afterwards is just epic. So let's play this piece of tape here. It's always somebody else's fault. It's never the national party's fault. Play cut 155. You don't let people lie about you and let it not let it go unanswered. Let it go unanswered and our candidates have got to do this. You can walk and chew gum at the same time. You can go and say this is where I stand. The Democrats are lying and now let's talk about crime, schools, border, fentanyl, and national security. I just want to clarify one quick thing though. The RNC had no involvement in these elections in Virginia per Governor Youngkin's request. We not well we were told in the summer they didn't need us that they had all the money and they were good. So now we've learned that the Virginia GOP chair Rich Anderson says that he asked the RNC to match the Democrats with one million dollars of a late cash infusion into the state. The RNC the only excuse they have is they can't raise money but that was supposed to be an thing. honest She said well we have no money but you're not raising any money because donors don't trust you the grassroots don't trust you. Sean help me understand. Yeah you've got two jobs as a as a party leader. You raise money and you set up state -by -state infrastructure so that the party can succeed which means by the way getting out to vote and setting up get out to vote infrastructure. So your your job is to supposed to raise a truckload of money and you're supposed to set up everything so that we can match the other side match the Democrats and how they get out the vote how they do ballot chase and all that. I've seen like I don't pay attention all that much to the fundraising so I won't I won't comment on that but it's been almost four years since a completely absurd election in 2020 when the Democrats just ran circles around us in in their absentee ballot chase their mail -in chase. I haven't seen a whole lot of evidence and that in states where we really need to win like Arizona and Georgia that either the state party or the national party is doing much of anything to make sure the Dems don't run in 2024 the exact same playbook they ran against us in 2020. So I'm I'm honestly kind of befuddled I feel like I'm watching office space watching the Bob's interview the employees and thinking what would you say you do here because I can't figure it out. So moving forward here Sean let's emphasize on the NBC news thing so we're after a very disappointing night and then Lester Holt and Welker are cross -examining our candidates just I want just the most objective way you could look at it what candidate do you think separated themselves from the other and who do you think missed an opportunity at that debate? Oh I thought Hveke was awesome I love how he came right out of the gate and trashed the moderators and basically said you're a whole bunch of Russian collusion hoaxers like who do you think you are that's how you handle these moderators and and I think Newt Gingrich was the one who who provided a perfect model for this he did it in during the 2012 primary where every time he got a question in one of these debates from a total left -wing hack masquerading as a journalist he just took him to town so you know your premise is garbage you're full of crap I think you're liars and here's what I'm going to talk about instead of the uh was fantastic um it's hard for me to say who the loser was in these because they kind of feel like loser debates to me and in the first place it's like watching the kids table so um I think the whole debate thing in it in and of itself we need to have a discussion about um but but I thought Hveke and the way he handled the moderators was great and I wish every single Republican from now until forever would treat these hack propagandists the exact same way. So I totally agree and I'll just say this you know Ron DeSantis received the first question and he gave his kind of typical and by the way he's the best governor in America I want everyone to be very clear I get hate mail when I say that Ron DeSantis remains the best governor in America he's not a good presidential candidate he's running a poor campaign it's the brutal honest truth and it's hard to watch he gives this fine answer you know I'm Ron DeSantis and people can't pay for gas and bah bah bye feel your pain yeah whatever Ron how awesome you were just you it was like a t -ball you could have went right after NBC news you could have just used them as the villain and the vague kind of picked up you know the trillion dollar bill that was laying right there and he called for Rana's resignation on top of it it was Rana's resignation the RNC is a bunch of losers we have a culture of losing and NBC news you guys are the complete worst and he got the headlines honestly he got the headlines across the head you know across the board and people really appreciate it because they want a fighter so let me ask you uh kind of shifting gears here Sean Joe Manchin not running for the senate the significance of this and how should we think about a potential no labels candidacy that is bubbling up with Millard Willard Mitt Romney and Mr. Manchin yeah so I got a kick out of Manchin's press release that he put out and said you know I've accomplished what I want to do in my career and I'm very proud of what I've done and and I have hopes of doing other things buddy you're retiring and not running again because you were going to get your butt kicked because you were Joe Biden's little laugh dog when you were supposed to be representing uh West Virginia voters so I think we need to be honest about why he's not going to be a senator again and it's because no one in his own state likes him the people who know him best don't want him as their senator anymore and and that's why he's not going to be running again so you bring up Mitt Romney uh man they are they are birds of a feather in that thing Mitt Romney's only the only consistent thing he has done his entire career in politics is run he gets in once and then he does such a poor job that everyone in the state hates him so he can't run again so he just finds like a new state to run you know he was a one -term governor in Massachusetts he got smoked in the presidential so he decided to move to Utah and run for senate there and no one likes him there anymore because he's a jerk uh and so what does he have left to do the only thing that Joe Manchin has left to do which is avoid any actual real job and just stay in politics and find a bunch of left -leaning voters who pretend they're independent but you can bilk and make a living off of so that's what's happening with Joe Manchin and I can't take this no label stuff seriously at all it's just a grift for a bunch of idiots who are hated by the left and hated by the right don't want to get a real job and have no home to go to go back to by the way Federalist you guys do great work it's really amazing just 30 seconds rip on the Federalist how are

for you and we have a video to accompany it in a second will John Fetterman cost Joe Biden the election divisions among democrats over Israeli -Palestinian conflict have highlighted the fault with lines in the party John Fetterman's actions are unlikely to sway the presidential election Pennsylvania however it does show that there are fault lines in the democrat party first of all I'm not a fan of John Fetterman but the guy is a master class troll every republican could take a class in how to troll like John Fetterman is basically if reddit became a U .S. senator I don't know if you saw this video but it's just you know you have this guy that looks like cyclops walking you know in a hoodie with the Israeli flag walking did you see this video on the funniest thing I've ever seen and all these people are getting arrested honestly I respect that level of game and this his base he's trolling so Sean you know let's broaden this a little bit outside of just Fetterman doing the trolling is this which is um the fault lines the democrat party over Israel the Palestine issue I don't want to overplay this I think this is the most divided I've seen the democrats in recent memory am I right on saying that Sean I think you are and I think it explains why the institutional left why Joe Biden and the party leadership uh walk on eggshells on this issue which really shouldn't be a difficult issue um you know people shouldn't be rolling into Israel and murdering babies and raping people and filming it and bragging about it that's bad I feel like anyone who has a soul understands that's bad but unfortunately there's a significant segment of the left the far left um it hates Israel hates Jews and when they see party leadership uh like Joe Biden and anyone else uh say common sense things uh about Israel they lose their minds and that that explains everything about why the democrats are handling this as poorly as they are is it Joe Biden is terrified that he's going to lose the presidential election because he's going to lose Michigan because he's going to lose Dearborn Michigan that's that big thing explained everything it's everything that's going on it has nothing to do with principle they're just scared about what their loony left is going to do to them if they don't kowtow to Hamas yeah and it's just but also beyond that Sean there are radicalized white liberals that care about the Gaza issue as well it's not just the Muslim vote right this could impact on their college campus enthusiasm and you play that in with some Jill Stein Cornell West I mean there are serious fault lines in this forced democrat coalition oh absolutely the the hardcore uh white left uh is is every bit as anti -semitic as the uh the bread by the way in in left wing run universities who view the entire world through this oppressor oppressed colonialist victim uh perspective and so yeah your your most rabid anti -semites often on college campuses are these hardcore left -wing white radicals it's totally bizarre but if you watch the media you watch the media the only anti -semites on earth are on the right which is absurd if you have eyes and ears and a brain because it's clearly concentrated on the left final question Sean your just gut reaction Tucker Carlson vice president for Donald Trump I love it I love Tucker uh I think it'd be great it'd be great for America um he's one of the only people who who says all the things that we all think but aren't allowed to say he actually comes out and says it and uh I love him I think it'd be awesome I think we would win especially in a multi -candidate race we're gonna keep on building it out Sean thanks so much appreciate it thank you sir nobody Tucker is better in front of the camera than Tucker you're not gonna outwit him could you just imagine Tucker in a debate Tucker versus Cami Kamala Harris versus Tucker Tucker is ridiculously alert he's been harassed constantly and in an internet age as Joe Rogan famously said Tucker Carlson was built for the internet no personal scandals his laugh alone we know this at Turning Point USA you can you could fill up a room if you just announced Tucker so let's pretend Trump has to go to Fulton County and Jack Smith and he's tied up in all this court stuff wouldn't it make sense to have a vice president who could draw big crowds and draw media attention especially in a multi -candidate race everybody you want to win younger voters especially younger men Tucker Carlson you would win early 30 -somethings you would win the Rogan bros you would win the Andrew Tate people and honestly I think you'd win a lot of suburban women a lot of moms like Tucker they really do Tucker's smart he's well before I'll use it again the more he's attacked the stronger he gets they've tried to take Tucker out every possible way the government spied on him illegally Tucker doesn't care he's in a political moment that we're in doesn't that make sense I want to tell you about the Herzog Foundation we are partnering with them on some exciting stuff for years I've been talking about our nation's public schools and how they've been captured by progressive ideologues teaching things that directly contradict the values of American families especially true if you're family for those of you worried about the best educational path I want you guys to check out the

.com that's HerzogFoundation .com Joining us now is the legend Benny Johnson Benny is best known by hosting a legend you are a legend no no no I don't just I just don't throw praise unless it's earned okay I got to tell the whole story here and we'll get through it and Benny of course hosts the Benny show he's amazing we've done some really fun stuff at Turning Point USA and continue to and so but he's best he will be best when known the history books are written for being a debate coach so here I am about to take the stage at Freedom Night our Turning Point USA event and my phone is lighting up Vivek goes after the RNC Vivek goes I say what is going on because here I kind of put in the back of my mind I was like whatever you know you and Vivek were like doing somersaults off of jet skis or something you're like we're debate prepping running through the woods or I was like all right okay whatever and then as soon as I saw Vivek go after NBC News I said Benny it's Benny tell us the story Benny okay so what do I do professionally well like this has been something that I've had a tough time a question I've had a tough time answering my entire life I do pattern recognition and energy energy right like where is the base what is our energy what are the what are the patterns of the things that we hate the very most well we we hate an RNC that doesn't listen to us we hate a Republican party that won't build the wall that won't deliver for the base that delivers election wins for the RNC it is not the RNC that wins elections it is us who gets out and votes but we also hate the corporate press and so why don't we bundle both those two things into criticism of an RNC that is siding with NBC News to host a debate and ask the questions why are these debate hosts allowed to one rig another debate against Republicans why is the RNC celebrating NBC News as a debate partner when they went with Hunter Biden's laptop disinformation Russia disinformation against President Trump kneecap President Trump's why would we allow that like how like how cucked are we and how embarrassing is it for all of us that that we have to say this is our Republican party and why doesn't Rana just resign do us all a favor and simply resign and so I all I did all I did was bring those concerns to the person who I was making a documentary with that day the vague and um you know compliments to the vague he sort of so let's absorb them and and let's show the clip here so what with it because because it really was the shot heard around the world it was one of the most viral debate moments in the history of debates because Vivek said what we were all thinking Rana has a 99 disapproval rating every base every every base member all the donors I talked to they want her gone it is it transcends economic lines state lines nobody likes her unless they're on the payroll right and yet Vivek is the only one that and then NBC News on top of it this is behind the cut one fifty four because these snooty the snooty like uh persnippity moderators to be compared to Greg Gutfeld and then it'll throw off it'll throw them off their game so bad because you'll be like you you you people are clowns to us right like our base doesn't like you and it's nothing personal it's just you've earned it right you've lied to them that's right yeah yes so why are we yep be such a broken system now I want to brag on the vague because we're going to play some more here how many times Benny how many times have you and I texted or you know said good ideas to congressmen and senators they said yeah yeah they don't listen to us credit to Vivek for also being open -minded right that's a big deal that's exactly right and also Vivek who's certainly not short of podcast bookings said why isn't Elon Musk and Joe Rogan and Tucker Carlson hosting debate why isn't Charlie Kirk hosting a debate Charlie why aren't you have you been asked by the RNC to host a debate no I have been attacked by the RNC in the last couple weeks definitely not asked to host the debate but I I'm I'm thankful to even be included in that list that's that's very sweet but no what but what would like why not I mean that's in the little that's in the documentary that we put up we put up a 30 -minute documentary about that debate preparation which really was just us having a conversation right like energy absorption like like where's the base right now what do they want to hear because as much as we want to talk about the number of naval ships and Hugh Hewitt know how many ships do we got like people are really concerned about other issues and specifically inside of the party like you shouldn't get rewarded for lying to us and that's what the Republican party just said they rewarded Kristen Welker and NBC News who lied to us for three years and kneecapped President Trump who we put in office in spite of them trying to rig the 2016 election we put President Trump in office and they destroyed arguably his first term based on a lie and they have never apologized they have never said they were wrong they they then get rewarded by our own RNC and it allows me to ask the question again and again how cucked are we if we can't say you get no debates until you apologize to our base for lying to us about the Russian collusion hoax then we really don't have a party and so it was refreshing to see somebody actually say that from the stage and then to call for Rana to resign which by the way you want to talk about moving the Overton window because I you know you know me Benny I I pick fights all the time and I've been kind of like beating the drum you know why is Rana Mcromany still in there you know in our little corner here and you know we're having fun and next thing you know boom Vivek goes on stage it's like yeah why are you in charge exactly and who are you and it was I mean now it's mainstream completely mainstream here's cut 166 Benny did a documentary with Vivek before the debate here is the conversation behind the scenes of Vivek deciding he will call for Rana to resign play cut 166.

Schumer said he would allow for them to bring up an amendment to add border issues but the Senate's top Republican Mitch McConnell indicated that will not be enough so this vote tomorrow will likely be blocked by a Republican filibuster. That's WTLP's Mitchell Miller. He adds that apparently there was a closed -door briefing today that did not go well with some Republicans walking out. Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky was supposed to make a direct last -ditch appeal during that briefing but had to cancel his appearance at the last minute it's possible Congress will leave for the holiday break without approving aid. Israeli officials say there is evidence of widespread sexual assaults committed by Hamas during their attack back on October the 7th. Victim testimony and evidence gathered by rights groups indicate that Hamas militants carried out widespread sexual and gender -based crimes during their October 7th attack in southern Israel. The reports are disturbingly graphic. In one example, an army reservist working to identify those killed by the militants said some of the women were found wearing only undergarments. bloodied One man said he heard a woman screaming that she was being raped her body was later found sexually mutilated. Rights organizations say the sexual atrocities committed by Hamas were intended to be utilized as a psychological weapon. Israel's police say they are combing through 60 ,000 people. seized They also from Hamas to bring the perpetrators of the killings abductions and sexual violence to justice. Hamas has rejected Israel's allegations. I'm Lisa Dwyer. Retired Justice Sandra Day O 'Connor will lie in repose in the Great Hall of the Supreme Court coming up on December the 18th.

I am Matt Verderam alongside Gilberto Manzano as always here in the midweek edition of the show. We've got a lot to get to because last week might have given us the best slate of games we're gonna have all week long. We had four games that everybody thought were gonna be great and as it turned out, three of them were pretty good. One of which was a blowout. We'll get to all them here in a minute then of course we have our week 10 lines of five games that we're gonna focus on from our SI Sportsbook odds and then from there we also have the midseason awards that we have to get to as we are halfway home in the 2023 NFL season. Before we get to all that, let's welcome the other man of the tandem, Gil, what's going on man? How you been? Yeah, I'm doing well. Matt, as you know, I like to brag about my wins and complain about my losses and last week was a good week. I went 12 -2 with the picks but I am pretty disappointed that I betted against Joshua Dobbs. What a game, right? Unbelievable. I'm annoyed. You went 12 -2, I went 11 -3 and I feel like 11 -3 should have given me some bragging rights for the week and yet it did not happen. So I will say on the whole, our group, yourself, myself, Connor, Orr, Albert Breer, Mitch and John our editors and Claire, another editor of ours as well that does great work, I feel like everybody's picks have been really pretty good this year. There are some years you look at picks and go, oh my god, I'm barely above 500. Right now, I've got the sheep pulled up in front of me, so the best record is Albert who's 95 -41, went 11 -3 last week and then after that, Claire Kawana is right behind him with 92 wins and then in gold it says 87 wins and then it's myself, yourself, John and then Connor Orr at 75 and 65 pulling up the rear, so Connor's got to step up. Connor is bringing down the credibility of this entire group. That's not bad for last play, so 10 games over 500? His thing is, we all do our upset picks and he's done 50 upset picks. I think I've done like 16. So that's part of the reason, but yeah, the picks are good and of course people that want to can read those over at SI .com, we put them out every week. The editors are nice enough to put that together. All right, so last week, like I said, we had some great games. We had Chiefs Dolphins over in Germany and then we had Ravens, Seahawks, which we thought would be a great game, turned out to be a massacre, Late Window, Cowboys, Eagles, which was one of the wildest games I can remember seeing in quite some time and then of course we had Bills, Bengals at the end, the Sunday night game there and so like I said, we'll get to all those. Let's just start with how the day actually started. Over in Frankfort, Chiefs build up a 21 -0 lead on Miami. Miami comes back, makes it 21 -14. They had a couple drives at the end where they could have tied the game, even taken the lead if they went for two. They got into Kansas City territory both times, but both times ended up going backwards, lose the game. They dropped to 6 -3. Chiefs, of course, improved to 7 -2. Both teams go on their bye weeks. I'll So, let you set the stage here, Gilberto. What is it to you, is it more about the Dolphins that game or is it more about the Chiefs? It is more about the Dolphins because they can't beat a team with a winning record and don't tell me the Chargers are .500 and the Dolphins beat them. They barely got to .500, so I am concerned about the Dolphins, but I don't want to let the Chiefs off the hook, Matt, and I know you've been writing about this, but the Dolphins have been pretty average. It got to a point where now Mahomes is saying, yeah, we sting. We're pretty bad. Go talk about the defense. That defense is carrying us the entire season. You know what's kind of funny, Matt? This season, it feels like the team with the best defense might win the Super Bowl, and the Chiefs still have the best defense right now, it feels like, so it's kind of a weird irony, but you expect better from Mahomes and Kelsey, but the wide receivers, they can't create separation. And it wasn't for that awesome fumble, reverse play, whatever it was from Cook there. They would have probably lost a game there, but what's going on with the Dolphins offense? Averaging 17 points against the Bills, Eagles, and the Chiefs, so I go with the Dolphins there because I feel like the Chiefs could figure it out. It's halfway point in the season, they're just cruising by, and I think something will finally break out there, but I'll let you maybe talk about the Chiefs a little more. But the Dolphins, man, you're supposed to be the most explosive offense, highest scoring, and you can't even get a first down. It's like, do they have too many home run hitters? Too many touchdown makers? How about some chain movers? How about some first down people? How about some quick outs, and just get four or five yards, and everything just feels like a home run, and they don't adjust, and they don't kind of make end game adjustments because credit to the Chiefs, and Tyreek Hill said it too, they covered, there was great coverage on Tyreek Hill, so it's kind of one of those games where like, why not get a tight end that can help you out here? Why not get some guys that can make it easier? How about go to Raheem Oster a little more? He had like 12 carries, and he's averaging 7 .1 yards per carry, so I don't know what's going on with Mike McDaniel on two, and two was pretty bad in that second half there. Yeah, he had the touchdown to Cedric Wilson, but make some adjustments, Mike McDaniel, and stop going for the home run ball, Tua. Yeah, look, first of all, I agree, I think the Dolphins are the bigger storyline coming out of the game. Like, they've now played three really good teams, and they've lost all three of them, and they came back against Kansas City, but they were getting killed in that game too. They were 21 -0 midway through the third quarter, and frankly, if Chris Jones doesn't take one of the dumbest personal fouls you've ever seen, it's probably 21 -7, and we're having a different discussion. I think your point though, man, is good with the Dolphins in the sense of like, there's timing strung off. They're just dead in the water. They have no answer for it, and we've seen that now multiple times, this year and last year. Kansas City basically said, we're going to get up on the line of scrimmage, we're going to get our hands on Tyreek Hill, we're going to reroute them, we're going to cause problems. Look, who knows them better than the Chiefs, right? I mean, they know what can cause some issues, and they actually went back and watched practice tape of a couple years ago to try to figure out how to stop them. They went back and watched how they worked against him in team drills and practice, and tried to figure out some things, and it obviously worked. But from the Chiefs' angle of this, listen, the offense is a disaster, okay? They had 46 yards in the second half of the game in a turnover. But they're 7 -2 in the number one seed in the AFC because the defense is incredible, and they're just shutting people down left and right. If you go and look this year at teams that have played the Chiefs, nobody's thrown for 300 yards. Kirk Cousins came the closest. He was up in the higher 200s because he threw a million passes. But if you look at Gough's numbers, 253 yards, one touchdown, which was a good game. That was without Chris Jones that week. Trevor Lawrence, they didn't score a touchdown. He threw 41 times for 216 yards. Justin Fields threw for 99 yards. Zach Wilson, of all people, had one of the best days against him, 245 and two touchdowns. That game. wild And then you had Cousins, who went for 284 and two touchdowns on 47 attempts. Russell Wilson threw for 95 yards one game, and in the other game, the game that they won, he threw for 114. These teams, two I didn't throw for 200 yards. Nobody's throwing for yardage against them. They're second in the league in sacks, the first in pressure rate. They've got two elite corners in McDuffie and Sneet, and so, look, the question with Kansas City is obvious. Can this offense get going? Because if the offense gets going, they're probably the best team in the NFL. I mean, if they get even borderline top -10 production out of that offense, forget it. They have the week now to scout. I was texting with some people around the team, and I think there's a general thought of like, look, it's a bunch of little things that are throwing off the whole thing. Question is, how many of those little things can you fix in the next couple of months? The good news is you have Mahalem, you have Kelsey, you've got a good offensive line, you've got Andy Reid. The bad news is they have you and me at receiver. So, I mean, that's the question. My guess? They'll fix it to an extent. I don't think it's going to be a unit that you'll look at and go, oh my God, they're incredible. I think it's probably going to be a top -10 unit right around there at the end of the year. They're in the mix, but yeah, I agree, man. The Dolphins are definitely the thing that you'll look at right now, and the team you'll look at right now and go, all right, you're going to make the playoffs, but what are you going to do when you get there? Are you going to beat somebody good, or is there going to be a one -and -done? Matt, let me ask a quick question, because you watch this team closely, and I think I watch them good enough because they're always on prime time, but all these analytics people are saying, look at the EPA, look at the DVOA. They're top five in offense in all these categories, and I'm like, I get it. You keep showing me the numbers, but I keep watching the games, and the wide receivers are not that great. They're not scoring points. They had nine points against Denver, so I don't know what it is. Maybe when you said disaster, I'm like, okay, cool, because I was trying to play it safe. Maybe they're average because there's something here that I'm missing with the DVOA and the EPA. They're a disaster by their standards. By anyone else's standards, yeah, they're probably still an above -average offense, but by their standards, they're a train wreck. I will say this. People forget it because they won the Super Bowl last year. They were somewhat of a train wreck offensively the first half of last year, too. They had a bunch of games last year. They lost to the Colts last year. They muddled through a Chargers game that they ended up winning because of a pick -six that went 99 yards the other way. They struggled offensively against the Bills. They ended up beating the Raiders on a Monday night last year, but they were down 17 -0, and they needed to come back in that game. They were not good offensively for stretches of last season, and then they're them. In January, they cranked it up, and that was it. Even on one ankle, Mahomes did enough to win. But this has been the year before that. They were 3 -4 at the beginning of the year. They couldn't score a point in that season. That was the year Mahomes played, again, by his standards, not by anybody else's, but by his standards. He played poorly. You go to 2021, and they lost in the AFC title game. They were 3 -4, and then people say, oh, well, then they came out of it. They did in terms of that they won games. Their point totals after that 3 -4 start, they won 20 -17, 13 -7. Then they blew the Raiders out, scored 41, 19 -9, 22 -9. The last couple of years, they've had stretches like this, but by their standards, they're a disaster offensively right now. By the NFL's standards, they're probably somewhere between 10 -12th in the league offensively. So, got to take it for what it's worth. Yeah. All right. Let's get to the next game here. The Bengals and the Bills will go right to Sunday Night Football, speaking of a team that by their standards is an offensive disaster, despite what EPA will tell you. I'm not here to bag on the analytics, guys. I will tell you this. I'm a big eye test guy. You watch the Bills. My eye test, I don't care that they're fourth or whatever in EPA offensively. They have not been good over the last month and change. I don't think there's any way to say that otherwise. They go to Cincinnati. They made it a little bit closer at the end, but they were down 24 -10 with a few minutes left. They score a touchdown. They get the two, but they can't get the ball back. The Bengals now, 5 -3. Winners of four straight playing like we expected them to play at the beginning of the year. The Bills are 5 -4. It has been a struggle for them. They started the year 3 -1. Since then, they're 2 -3 going in the other direction. They have a very hard schedule. We'll get to that in a moment. What was your main takeaway from that Bengals -Bills game? Just the difference in quarterback play between Joe Burrow and Josh Allen and how to cover that game. I wrote about it. I kept seeing Joe Burrow moving around the pocket and extending plays. Then I look at the boxer, I'm like, wait, he has four rushing yards? I thought he ran for a bunch of yards. I know he had that one where he had the first down kind of signal. It's just when pressure comes, he knows how to move. It's smooth. It's not like he has to speed it up. He just says, okay, cool. You're right there, but I'm still going to do what I have to do and just extend plays. Matt, when it's Drew Sample and Tanner Hudson and Erskine Jr., Trenton Irwin, these guys are making plays. Then you look at Josh Allen, when the pressure comes, it looks difficult. It's chaotic. He has to kind of see what's out there and then, okay, force a throw or miss a throw. I get the Bengals defense is better than the Bills defense, so Burrow had maybe an easier time, but there was pressure. He was fighting pressure. I get it. The second there is not as good there, but it just seems harder for Josh Allen.

Intrusive Questions for Child-Free Women With Niamh Madden
"Is an interesting thing, isn't it? About like intrusive questions. And I had a lady on talking about fertility, and it's the same there. Like, you have no idea why a person might not have a child. And I think some of these questions, while like well -intended and often from our nearest and dearest, it's very, it's very hard to answer. I'm kind of curious, do you talk openly to people? Like, would you say I'm like, I don't have any kids? Or would you say I don't have any kids and I'm child free from choice? Like, how have you navigated that? So tricky. I mean, I've changed my answer so many times over the years. And we've had like conversations about this. We do an online thing called the Conversation Cafe, where we pick a topic. And one of them was, how do you respond to the question, do you have kids? And what I love is there's so many different answers. I mean, I think I would have been very defensive or like, oh, no, I don't. But like, I have nieces and nephews and like, that's enough for me, you know? Or no, no, no, I don't. Like, oh, I'm not sure. Maybe someday, you know, I used to kind of excuse myself because I wanted people to like me in that moment. I didn't want the person to be like, oh, that's awkward. Or it's even like, I don't drink anymore. I gave up drinking a few years ago, about four years ago. And there's always this thing of like, oh, you don't drink. And I'm kind of like, do I go into the ins and outs of why I don't drink? Or do I just say like, oh, I'm on it. I have a health kick going on or whatever. So it is. And I understand, like, they don't mean as an intrusive question. I think that's like you said, it's like small talk. It's like people making conversation. But I guess they've never been through either fertility issues or something like that. When I started the group, I interviewed women who were child free by choice and who were child free, not by choice. And one of the women had had cancer treatments, so she was left, you know, infertile as a result. You know, but if someone asks her, oh, do you have kids? Do you want kids? Like, how do you even go into all that kind of traumatic experience, you know? So I think people are well meaning. But like that, wouldn't it be great if we could like have some sort of small talk that doesn't always revolve around, oh, you're a woman. Do you have kids? I don't know if men get asked that same question. I would doubt it. You know. Yeah. I just don't see it. I actually think one of your co -organizers in Sisterhood mentioned that on a podcast that you did with Margaret O 'Connor, which I'll also link that in on her resources because she runs a podcast specifically exploring people's decision around having children. But I think she said that she had changed jobs and her husband had changed jobs around quite similar times. And she had been asked multiple times if she had children. And I don't think he couldn't remember one time that he was asked that. But you're right. I think I kind of feel there is like maybe we need to start thinking about like asking better questions. What are your hobbies? And even I think like that's probably actually something that would lead to a better conversation anyway, wouldn't it? Like knowing what someone does for fun. Yeah, definitely. And like that, it's a more open question rather than a yes or no. Do you have kids? Yes. No. Do you want kids? Yes. No. Like it's and it's funny. I don't know why we feel embarrassed to ask that question. Like I would be embarrassed to be like, so what are your hobbies? But then what's wrong with that? Like there's nothing. You know what I mean? I think it's a shift. It's a transitionist from like the usual conversation maybe in Ireland that you might have with someone to like unknown territory. I remember when someone said to me once like, oh, how do you spend your time? And I actually didn't know how to respond because I know rather than being like, what do you do? Or, you know, where do you work or anything? It was it was actually a really nice question, but I was so bamboozled. I was like, I don't even know where to begin. And I think I just said, you know, you know yourself. This and that. Like, you know, so yeah, I think it is a really interesting point. It's like, what are those conversations we can have that aren't intrusive but are like help you build a connection? And I was listening to a podcast on small talk recently. It was like, we all know we have to get to the small talk, get through it just to have that connection. But it can feel uncomfortable and it can be like that. Like it could be something that triggers someone or it can be something that's totally natural for someone else. Like, oh, do you have kids? Yeah. I do. Yeah. And do you? And, you know, so it just depends, I think,

After 10 Alabama months, Senator Tommy Tuberbill's blockade on military promotions has finally ended. The Senate approved all nearly of them at once today. The number of military promotions being held up had actually steadily grown to more than 400, and Tuberbill was under a growing pressure from fellow Republicans to end this hold, which was due to opposition his to a Pentagon abortion policy. Democrats added to that pressure by threatening to change a procedure so that all the promotions could be approved on a single vote. Tuberbill still has a hold on a little under a dozen four -star generals and above, but after all this drama, Tuberbill didn't really get anything, including a change in the Pentagon policy, so lawmakers and Schumer are warning that they hope that this never happens again. That's WTOP's Mitchell Mailer. He finally backed down after pressure from fellow Republicans continuing to grow.

That's the question at the COP28 climate talks. Negotiators at the COP28 summit have produced a new draft of what's expected to be the core document of the talks. The first global stock take on climate looks at what's happened since the 2015 Paris climate agreement, how off -track it is, and probably what's needed to get it back on track. The CEO of COP28, Adnan Amin, tells the Associated Press the stock take looks set to provide a very good basis for moving forward. This is the first time we have a global stock take on the table. This is a COP, in which there is tremendous public scrutiny about what's happening and public interest in what's happening. However, Amin says there's much work to be done on it. We're to going have our work cut out. There's a lot of work to do. There's a lot of heavy lifting to do. So I think the room for that kind of positioning is not really there. There has to be substantive engagement to be demonstrated. Clearly, whatever's adopted has to be agreed on by consensus. So it has to be at least near unanimous. I'm Charles De La Desma.

From Personal Trauma to Helping Others Heal: Chantelle O'Connor Shares Her Story
"Joining me today is Chantelle O 'Connor, a counsellor, coach and mentor, helping women heal their relationships with themselves by breaking free of intergenerational trauma. Chantelle, you're very welcome. Hi, it's great to be here. Thank you for asking me. I'm thrilled. I'm so, so intrigued by what you do and just can't wait for this conversation to learn more. Yeah, me too. I'm great. It's really great to share about it as well, because it's not something that everyone is aware of. Amazing. Well, maybe we'll start at the beginning, Chantelle, and tell us a little bit about your life story and how it is that you've come to this point where you are then helping other women heal their relationships with themselves. Yeah, sure. So throughout my 20s, or really from a young teen, maybe around 13, I started to have issues around things such as food. I didn't realize at the time, but when I was 13, I found relationships quite hard. So friendships, I found quite difficult, I've become quite overwhelmed. And I found it very hard to navigate life, I think, which I suppose most 13 -year -olds do. But as I grew older, these problems seemed to kind of worsen, and I had problems around alcohol. I had problems at school. I just had problems with... I mean, the crux of my problem was actually having self -worth, really. Most of it was about poor self -worth and also trauma that I hadn't really unpacked. And I spent most of my 20s trying to figure out what was wrong with me. I just thought there was something deeply wrong with me, and I had to fix it. I found it affected every single area of my life. So my relationship with food, my body image, alcohol, drugs, jobs. I would jump from job to job. I had a really bad relationship with money. I was in quite a lot of debt by the time I was like 28, 29. And it all kind of came to a head for me around that age, because I was finding that traditional therapy, talking therapy, wasn't quite doing what it said on the tin, if that makes sense. I wasn't seeing real change. I would have weeks where it would be okay, and then again, the sort of depression and anxiety that I'd felt since I was 13 would return. And as I got older, and I think probably most of your listeners could identify with this, as you get older, those sort of things seem to just get worse. So around that age, I learned of something called the Martha wound and the father wound. And I had a lot of resistance to looking at those two things, because immediately as I learned about them, I felt incredibly scared. And also I thought, I just don't want to look at that stuff. And in terms of my childhood, I moved around the Middle East quite a lot, and my parents did the absolute best they could with what they had at the time. However, when I look back now doing the work that I do, I understand that my parents were suffering from their own generational trauma. And this really impacted the relationship that they had with me. And once I started to learn about the father wound and the mother wound, and also intergenerational trauma itself, so looking at my grandparents and looking at the legacies of generational trauma, I began to see real change, because I understood what was happening, and I understood how certain things that had happened in my childhood had changed my nervous system. And there was a reason why I felt overwhelmed around other people, and also a reason why I struggled with interpersonal relationships, as well as a reason why I tended to self -destruct rather than have really positive coping mechanisms. So once I began to see that that was at the heart of most of my issues, I began to be able to clear a lot of that, and that took a lot of working through stuff that wasn't mine to carry anymore, and really in my mind as well as my body, because the big aspect of this that I never really realized was that a lot of the trauma was stored in my body. And my traditional talking therapy just really hadn't done anything for that. And I wouldn't know where I was in my nervous system. I wouldn't know that I was triggered. I wouldn't know that my tendency to sort of shut myself away was a response to not really having relational resilience. And those are all things that weren't particularly modeled to me as a child, and weren't really modeled in my parents' relationship. And so I started to really understand, and also through understanding, I really began to be able to make changes. The biggest change was the relationship I had with myself that really, I understood that that had been colored by generations of trauma and things that had happened in my family history. And this is why I think it's so important in what I do, is because I see so many women who just can't put their finger on why they have such a poor relationship with themselves, or why they struggle to trust others, or make decisions for themselves. And when we get into the crux of generational trauma, and also your nervous system, where it lives in your body, what parts work is, I start to see things change for these women. And those were the things that helped me really be able to change the narrative I think I was living by for a number of years, really.
A highlight from Ep. 122 - Traveling Back to 1990: A Year of Iconic Music, Movies, and Events
"Well, here we are, episode 122, and on this episode I don't have the wrecking to tonight. Nope, only got one of them. The Professor, Lou Colicchio, me and Lou are going to tear it down. You see, Mark Smith evidently didn't pay his cable bill or his Wi -Fi bill or his internet bill because he called and said, I can't make this show tonight. I don't have service. Stop buying the wine and pay your bills, buddy. That's all I got to say, but he'll be watching on his phone. Thank God for 5G. Enough about him. Me and the Professor will be talking about the year 1990 and music and movies. People like that. So enjoy the show. Thank you, Amanda, for that wonderful introduction as usual. Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends. Welcome to the podcast. You know the name. I'm not going to say it. We're streaming live right now over Facebook, YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Dlive, Twitter's X, X, Twitter, whatever it is now, and I have two screens up there. I have been scrambling all day. I have been scrambling all day. Let me get my chat set up here. Yeah, this has been kind of crazy. I just did the intro about, I don't know, 10 minutes ago. And about four minutes ago, I think Lou and Mark teamed up on me on this one. I swear they did. I think at that point they have a real comfort level that they can fuck with me. And I think because after I did the intro, you know, I'm setting up the studio, the virtual studio, and all of a sudden who pops up? Mark Smith from the Music Rollers podcast with his wine. He's a trooper. He's doing this on his phone for the podcast listeners. He's doing his like FaceTime thing on his phone and yeah, because he has five Gs. He can pay for that, but he can't pay for his internet. But Lou, who was supposed to be here, oh, I have laptop issues. I have laptop issues. Well, Lou evidently isn't a trooper like Mark is. What's up, buddy? How are you doing? Listen, can you hear me? I can hear you, yes. I sound like shit, but okay. I'll be on until Lou gets on and then I'll bow out. But, well, you know, yesterday morning, Lou called me first thing and said, hey, you want to fuck with Scott? I said, no, don't fuck with Scott. He's a nice guy. And Lou said, we got to fuck with him. Found him. Are you trying to pit me and Lou against each other? Is that what you're doing? Do you have an ulterior motive? Are you like an evil podcast genius that I didn't know about until this point? Are you? Well, just don't search around for me too much, okay? Don't do any deep dives on Mark Smith. So, real quick, how's everything going? Good? Going good, except I'm going to live for four or five days without any internet, which is kind of wild. Like back in the day when you had cable, it didn't matter. Hey, we're without internet. Now, when you don't have internet, you don't have anything. It's going to be a fun weekend, you know? You're like, what? I got a digital antenna. I'll watch some local stations. I'll watch Svengoolie on Saturday night. I'll, you know, read books, play some DVDs. There you go, like the old days. Excellent, man. And you sent me a text that you have one of those new -fangled digital antennas, right? Yeah, well, kind of new -fangled, but yeah, they're good. I tell you, the quality of HD on those digital antennas is actually better than getting it through cable or BIOS or whatever. They are pretty good, yeah. Look at this. So, Patty says, Patty, Asi, how's it going? Good evening, Scott and Mark. Good evening, Patty. April. April and Mark says, Mark Smith is a no -agenda guy. Oh, no, no, no. Do not let this guy below right here. Don't let that fool you, April. No, no, no. Yeah, he's a trooper. Okay. There's an agenda here somewhere. I know there is. There's a game playing play there. I just haven't found out what it is yet. I can't text Luke because I'm using my phone. Damn it. If you see me do this, all of a sudden, you know. You're texting on the screen. All right, buddy. So, I don't know what you have, but let me just, we'll jump right into the year 1991. And as usual, give me some of your excellent commentary as we go along. Right off the bat, January 8th, 1990, we start off with Irish singer Sinéad O 'Connor released her famous single, Nothing Compares to You. And then, what do you think the next line is? Oh, I can't remember. No, no. The next line, it says released her famous single, Nothing Compares to You, originally. Recorded, written by Prince. Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's like every fucking person in the world. How many times have you heard me say this? I fucking hate that. I hate that. Did you know Prince wrote that song? Did you know that? Did you know Prince recorded it and gave it? Did you know that? Shut the fuck up. Because you can't give a performance. You can give a composition, but that's a performance worth its weight in gold. It's a great performance. Fucking, everybody wants to be like, I know about music. That's like the worst party music trivia you'd ever fucking throw out there. I know. They feel brilliant. They're compelled. They feel compelled to say it. Anyway, I digress. Hey, Manic Monday was written by Prince. I'm sure if you record it, it wouldn't be the version that we all like. You don't hear all that, right? No. So as I said, a couple Sundays back, I saw Morrissey, my man Morrissey at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, the big guitar at Hard Rock Live. And he had come out originally after she died and lambasted all the fucking bandwagon jumpers that always feel bad when he basically said, you were the motherfuckers. These are my words. You were the motherfuckers. I don't think Morrissey talks like that, that caused her to go in that direction. You were the ones that canceled her. You were the ones that pointed your crooked finger at her and said, you're a heathen. You're this, you're that. And then when she passes away, unfortunately, they all praise her. They praise her. And he's like, no, no, no, no, no, no. I'm not biting. So he always does a video montage before his concerts. And the first thing he played was nothing compares to the video. And it was rather chilling, I have to say. It was rather chilling.
A highlight from Chargers Staley Mistake & Burrow's Rebound
"Hello everyone and welcome back into the MMQB Podcast. I'm going to show you this week Connor or Albert. We are coming at you earlier in the week. And so it is I, Matt Verderam, alongside Gilberto Manzano, as always, as we are getting ready for week seven of the NFL season already. Gilberto, I don't know about you, man, but every year, every year I get all excited for opening day. And I'm like, all right, great. It's week one or whatever that game is Thursday night and a full slate on Sunday. Sometimes we get that doubleheader on Monday. And then I blink and it's Halloween and it's week seven and it's week eight. Somebody seems already out of it and you're starting to see who's the real contender. Does that happen for you or do you feel like the season goes a little bit slower for you? Yeah, it's kind of like a mix. It's like, oh, wow, it's week seven. But then when you're always writing stories and you're working, it's like, oh, OK, can we get to maybe the playoffs now? Less games. And this is just kind of, as a reporter, kind of annoyance here. When I saw maybe four or five games in the late window, I'm like, come on, I want to focus on three. I can't do five games. So things like that. But I'm with you. I do enjoy football. Those upsets on Sunday were. Yeah, we did not see that coming. So, you know, you kind of hit the walls as a reporter. But, you know, as a football fan, you always enjoy it. You know, it's crazy to like you bring up a good point about the late slate. You know, that that four o 'clock window on the East Coast and there's four of those games this week. But I feel like in the past, not that there are less or more games. I mean, it was kind of like what what it's always been. But I think that it feels like this year, a lot of those games just have not been good. Like you go into the games and you're like, yeah, you know, I don't love it. And I think part of that is a lot of the teams on the West Coast right now are not particularly good. I mean, Denver is not a good team. The Raiders, to their credit, three and three, but not like an overly great draw. I think most people expect they're not going to be tremendous as the year goes on. Arizona is not good. The Rams are a decent team. You know, depending on the matchup, could be a decent game there. Obviously, San Francisco and Seattle are excellent. But like if those teams aren't hosting in that late window, you're kind of stuck, right? I mean, you get a lot of these games, you're going, eh, I didn't mention the Chargers are kind of like the Rams. I mean, it depends on the matchup. But, you know, you look at this week's slate and the national 425 game is the Chargers hit the Chiefs, which, okay, you know, it's a good game, divisional matchup. Green Bay at Denver, not overly exciting. Arizona at Seattle, again, love Seattle, but not like overly enthused because Arizona is involved. So I wish they would almost have the ability to flex like they do for Sunday Night Football, where you could flex a game, you know, maybe with a few weeks of notice, because it wouldn't really screw up fans. You're going to the game on Sunday, well, okay, now you're just going a couple hours later.
A highlight from Browns Legitimatize Rebuild & Robert Saleh
"Hello and welcome to the MMQBNFL podcast. I'm Connor O 'Rourke. We've got Albert Breer here and this was the week where the undefeated spell. We're going to start right there. We're just going to get into it because no one wants to hear me talk about my weekend, even though I didn't do any pumpkin picking or anything, Albert. Are you doing any big fall festival things or is this too early right now? I do zero pumpkin picking. We did go to like the... Wait, you don't pumpkin pick at all? No. We did... What? Emily's super into how... So our oldest was born on Halloween and Emily's super into it. So she decorates the house a lot. You'll find this as your kids get older though. We used to do the pumpkin picking, the apple picking, going to whatever on a Saturday afternoon and then they got older. And now it's like we have football and soccer and dance and all this different stuff. So that's one thing I have found is like a lot of those things we did when the kids were, I would say younger than five, sort of start to get thrown out the window once their schedules fill up with their own things. Man. That's what you have had for you. You always got to make time for apple cider donuts, I feel like. Oh no, but you can buy those. There doesn't need to be any elaborate trip to go and do that. That's fair. We decorated. So my kids kind of got wind of Halloween as a thing probably around like mid -September, very early September. And they found the decorations in the basement and they were like, what's the difference? Why don't we just throw it out there now? And so my wife and I, like lunatics, are putting tombstones. So you're like the people who put Christmas stuff out before Thanksgiving now, except for Halloween. Oh yeah. But so that's the problem, right? So I am always, November 1, Christmas lights. Always. Always and forever. So you are a pre -Thanksgiving Christmas decoration guy. Two hundred percent. And I get so much shit for it. But my thing is, it is such an undertaking. It is such an undertaking. You know, you have to be on the roof. So you're like legitimately Clark Griswold then. I am. I have the icicle lights. I wrap all the railings. I wrap all the trees. And then I have every year for Christmas, I get more. But they're like the three foot inflatable animals with like scarves and hats. And I think I'm up to like nine or 10 of those. And so my thing is, why would you want to be freezing your ass off on a ladder on like November 30th when you can do it November 1? It's crisp. It's a beautiful fall day. And then you're lighting up the neighborhood for everybody else. You know, I don't know. I take pride in that. But now we're early Halloween and early Christmas. And I think we're people like that. That like covers like the first half of the school year almost then. Yeah. Because that Yeah, that's pretty crazy. Like that's, yeah. So we had, so like I said, my wife's really into Halloween. And last week we bought a, so there's like this street, you guys, I'm sure you've seen this, but like, one thing like, I feel like you always see us like every town has these streets, right? Like where like everybody on the street goes nuts for Christmas or everyone on the street goes nuts for Halloween, right? Like, right. And so like, there's this like little like, I don't even know if I call it a street, but it's there's like four houses on it's like a long driveway, right? And I guess for decades, they've done this just such an elaborate Halloween display on Halloween, like on Halloween itself. It is like, unbelievable, right? Like, just like looks like it's like, it looks like you're in a movie set when you go when you walk through it. And, you know, there's older couple that ran the whole thing for years and years. And so this was the year they decided, like, our kids are older, we can't do it anymore. We're not going to do it. So they sold all their stuff.

I have on this podcast a lot going on. A little something at the top that I wanted to talk about that ties into what's going on in this Phillies Atlanta series, which is now over because Atlanta became the latest team to dominate the regular season and then lose immediately in the playoffs. So I want to talk about that. I have some thoughts. Million dollar picks. Craig Horlebeck and Danny Heifetz coming on to talk about NFL then and now comparisons for players. And then Austin Gale is going to nerd it up with us about the NFL. Oh wait, there's more basketball. Kyle Mann talking about all the rookies that we have coming into the NBA season in less than two weeks.

You're lucky this is free. Free content, my friends. Let's bring in Pearl Jam. All right, I'm going to do million dollar picks in one second, taping this on a Thursday morning. I was thinking about my friend James' baby doll Dixon today, whenever there was a Hollywood deal that we always would laugh at and be like, oh my God, I can't believe they did that or can't believe they took that job. And he would always say, money grab, baby. I'm talking about him like he's dead. He's still alive. What a money grab. And we just money grab has been a running joke with baby and Sal and Jimmy and my circles for a long time. Who's doing a money grab? All of the professional sports leagues right now are in one of the all time money grabs we've ever seen. Now, I was thinking about it last night with the Dodgers because on the one hand, the Dodgers get bounced in three games, right? They play this whole regular season. They get this great record and then they get bounced and they're done. And their fans are just irate. They're apoplectic. They can't believe this happened again. Oh my God, we lost momentum. Now, there's some rational Dodger fans that are also like, you know, we did start playing Kershaw in game one of a playoff series and he didn't make it out of the first inning. They lost Urias during the season, who was their best starting pitcher. And it was a pretty flawed Dodger team. Actually, I wasn't surprised that they lost. I didn't think it was gonna be the Diamondbacks. But in general, the Dodger fans are like, I just spent six months watching this team and this season ended in 90 hours. We saw this happen in the NBA with the Bucks and the Heat last April. The Heat was an eight seed. The Heat farted around during the whole regular season and turned it on for a couple games and all of a sudden the Bucks were gone, which was great. It was really fun. Hockey has had this forever. I had hockey season tickets for a couple of years with the Kings and the regular season was so meaningless and so stupid for a team that knew they were gonna make the playoffs that you almost wondered, what was the point? Why am I paying for this other than to see Connor McDavid or a couple other people? The NFL has expanded to 17 games, which all of us love football, but 17 seems way too many, especially with the injury potential. And they're probably gonna go to 18. They'll just keep the gravy train going. And it's all about the money. And I'm not breaking any new ground by saying that, but at what point do we stop carrying? At what point, because I'm there with baseball. Baseball is fun. You put it on every once in a while. But for the most part, if you have a good baseball team, and I've had a few, the 2018 Red Sox were probably the best start to finish baseball team I've ever rooted for, but ultimately they also could have lost and not won or it would have been over. It's all about the playoffs now. And it feels way more random than it ever did. And I don't know if it's a good thing. I think it's a bad thing for baseball because people talk about how fun these wildcard games are and the pitch clock, and I'm with you. I've watched a ton of baseball, but I also didn't really watch any baseball during the regular season. And I'm somebody who grew up loving baseball. I watched baseball my whole life. I wrote a Red Sox book up until probably the late 2000s. I love baseball equally with every other sport. And now I just don't care as much. And there's a million reasons for that. But the biggest reason is the regular season just doesn't matter at all. You could win 120 games and it doesn't matter. The other team could just get hot. Like, well, look at the Phillies right now. The Phillies, who everyone was like, they're built for the playoffs, they're built for the playoffs. That seems like the type of team you should just build. Build a team. Who cares about the regular season? Build it for the playoffs. I think Miami has entered this mode in the NBA just year after year. They don't care. They're going to be like a five seed, six seed, seven seed, eight seed. Doesn't matter. And they'll just see if they can get hot. It's more fun if you have no attention span at all. And maybe it makes more sense in the TikTok generation. But for what I grew up with and what we used to care about was the totality of everything. The regular season meant this. It really meant something to win 100 games of baseball. It was amazing if your basketball team won 60 games. There were just these little markers that you had in your head. And all this stuff ties in. The load management piece, which the NBA is allegedly trying to fix. I'll believe it when I see it. Football adding more games so that the sport is more random than ever before. There's more chance for injury than there's ever been. And there's more chance for just wacky results, which I think is maybe what they want. I'm not sure I want it. I don't like where we are. Like even in baseball, and I think hockey is another one, and I think basketball is another one. The home team should get some sort of advantage for being good during the regular season in baseball. This five game series the Dodgers had against the D -backs. Why wouldn't the Dodgers get all five games at home? The only advantage they get is that if there's a game five where they've just not played for a week and then you get game five at home and that's the advantage. Well, I've watched baseball for the last 25 years. The home field advantage, except for maybe the Phillies, doesn't seem to matter at all. The Red Sox won the majority of their biggest games on the road during the 2000s and 2010s. Can count them up. I always felt like the 0 -14, the 0 -7, I felt like those teams could win anywhere. The 18 team had that crazy extra extra extra innings game against the Dodgers where it seemed like the season was over. Guess what? They won the next game. Home field doesn't matter as much. So if it doesn't matter as much, at least make it so that in round one a team is rewarded for winning a hundred plus games and all their games are at home. And if you want to go in their house and beat them, that seems fair. But to just make it like it's worth one game, I felt the same way with Milwaukee and Miami. I think it should have been Milwaukee gets the first two, Miami gets the next two, Milwaukee gets the next three. They earned it. They got the one seed. So we're heading toward this world where regular seasons will continue to be devalued. They'll try to cover it up with fantasy and gambling, but for the most part, there's going to just going to be more randomness with the results. And I don't think I like that. I don't know if Miami was a better team than Milwaukee last year. I think Giannis got hurt and Jimmy Butler left his body and then they beat Milwaukee in a series and it was fun, but did that mean they were a better team? What's the point of these seasons? Are we just turning everything into March Madness? Feels like where we're heading. I'll tell you this though. It's a fucking money grab. All right. Million Dollar Picks coming up.
A highlight from New England's Historic Loss & CJ Stroud Breaks Out
"Hello and welcome to the MMQB NFL podcast. I'm Conroe. That's my dog Ernie upstairs barking at the FedEx guy. Albert Breer's here and I'm going to start in New York because Albert I can't believe that we're still doing this Taylor Swift thing. And now the NFL is doing the Taylor Swift thing. Do you see that they are their subhead on their Twitter pages. The Chiefs are now 2 -0 as Swifties. I did not see that but I am more and more. It's fake. I think so too. I think on Friday like the radio show I did in Boston. They leave me at the like and these guys are really creative and they kind of like took me through their full like tinfoil hat like conspiracy theory. You know like you know what this actually really makes sense. Like because the NFL has forever chased the female demographic and they've struggled to get it. And they know that there's nothing more buzz worthy on that side of the aisle than Taylor Swift. And they were shameless enough to cut like I mean we've seen some of their shameless acts over the years to try and get the female audience. And this wouldn't even rank in like the top 10. You know what I mean like this would just be sort of par for the course that they would do something like this. So I really like I am officially on this Monday morning Connor especially after the 10 million shots that box last night. I'm all the way there. This is all fake. This is all like this is all contrived. This is it. Everyone wins situation. Taylor gets to promote her movie. What else is it? There's one other thing right is a new album coming out. I can't keep track of all of this. I have no idea. OK. So Taylor gets to promote that stuff with a different demographic. Right. Like football different demographics different than hers. The NFL gets to try to take a swing at the female audience. And then Travis Kelsey gets an enormous benefit from this. Travis Kelsey's following has exploded. Nine hundred thousand new followers. This is like an everyone wins situation. And it's all fake. A 14 point 14 whatever place jump in Jersey sales. Like we were taught in school to follow the money and it's right out in front of us. Like it's like you know we're not even it's not even like they're hiding it. And I think I'm only read some of this stuff sometimes, though, and like like over the last week, like actually clicking on some like people dot com links, you know, I've seen some stories she reads. And I always think that the page six type stuff, you know, and I always think it's funny when there's like an insider into somebody's relationship, like who would be the insider into your relationship? Connor, I, you know, when they when they when they when they put sources into your relation and then people's relationships. Yeah, the sources be I mean, it would be like my neighbor or like my mom or my wife's mom. It would be like, yeah, I think I think they're fighting, you know. Yeah. Yeah. I don't have a publicist. I always think that's great. Like is the sources into the like the insiders into the relationship? Like is that person like just coming over and hanging out on a Tuesday or something and that makes them an insider? So Brian Costello, who's awesome, Jets beat writer for the New York Post, and he tweeted the the bio for the NFL's Twitter page, which is the Chiefs two and O's Swifties. And he's totally right. This is the kind of stuff that fuels nutjob conspiracy theorists, not just the ones with the podcast. But the fans who watched that game last night and saw their saw the outcome derailed by an extraordinarily questionable call on Sauce Gardner. And listen, I'm not saying it's good, bad, right, wrong or indifferent. But if you're a Jets fan and you've already seen your entire season railroaded by the NFL's greed and desire to milk whatever they can out of this franchise and you had to do hard knocks. Every single game is on prime time. Your schedule is ridiculous, ridiculously front loaded and impossible at the beginning. You know, I don't know what else you could think right now other than your team is just being actively manipulated by by the league. And listen, I don't believe it. You know, Andy Benoit and I used to fight about the I used to get him going on the NFL's fake thing a while back. We had a lively discussion about that after Peyton Manning's second Super Bowl. But I don't believe it. I'm not one of those people. Well, you're not making them go away. I just noticed I just went to the NFL's Twitter page. It is now the header is three shots of tail left. And like if you look at the bio, I think this is a tailor. I think this is a tailor reference. We had the best day with you today. Maybe is that a reference? I think it has to be right to be clear. I'm not anti Taylor Swift. I think she's a fine musician. Yeah, I think she's a genius. Like, yeah, I think she's a legitimate genius and everything she touches turns to gold. And there's a reason for it. She's obviously incredible. Yeah, I just don't like I want you know what? I think I'm hot, too, because I'm coming off the I wrote about the way those are the lyrics to it. Those are those are lyrics from a Taylor Swift song titled The Best Day. Okay, I think I'm just a little hot coming off the Toy Story broadcast, too. Did you did you catch any of that? I was actually coaching third grade football during the Toy Story. Okay, good. Yeah, I threw that on and I was just like, what are they doing? And I get it. You're trying to get kids to watch football. But how about just allowing kids to watch football or to have kids play football and not to watch like a I mean, the technology was incredible. But it like it looked like a like a like Minecraft, you know, and like I just felt like I watch it with my son for a minute. And I was like, they're trying to just it's like cocoa melon. They're just trying to hypnotize them. So we we bang that thing fast. I mean, I just feel like that's like there are some people at the league office who don't have enough to do. And that's how things like that wind up coming to life. Like like fix, fix the problems. Like we're focused on Taylor Swift and the Toy Story broadcast, like like digital chains so that like chains don't break during the game. Grass fields like like like fix the actual problems with the games. My God. Anyway, twenty three twenty, the Chiefs beat the Jets. The Jets fall to one in three. The Chiefs are three and one. I think my takeaway from this game is the takeaway that everybody had, which was this was a feisty, very feisty Zach Wilson game. I think that Robert Sala, to me, win or lose, just earns so much credit because during the week he knew he was going to get demolished. And he said, you don't throw people away. You just don't throw people away. And I give him so much credit because honestly, this is job on the line stuff. And he stuck with Zach Wilson. He dug in. There was no sample size. And Zach played really well. I was very happy for them. And look, like I think that the biggest problem that Robert Sala had was like, can he continue to sell Zach Wilson to the locker room? Because the premise of that entire team, the construction of that team this year was we're going for it. Right. So there are guys in that locker room like Allen Lazard and Adrian Amos and Randall Cobb, guys that were like that are older vets that are there to chase the ring. And like guys like that aren't going to have patience. They don't care what this means for your franchise in 2025. They care about right now. And the younger guys in the roster are going to be worried about what's going to get them in a position to get paid. So it can be hard to sell a developing quarterback to a locker room. And I'll give Robert Sala credit for standing by Zach Wilson, because if he didn't do that, like it would have been impossible. It would have been impossible for Zach in that locker room. you And, know, it sort of made me think of something I said earlier in the day about how Josh Dobbs should get us to question everything about how we develop quarterbacks, how the NFL develops quarterbacks, how the NFL nurtures quarterbacks. Because, you know, you have this guy in Josh Dobbs who got what, six years to kind of learn away from the bright lights. And then because he was on different teams, because he had different experiences, because he was developed away from game action, because people invested in him, because he had a chance and people had patience with him. And, you know, every single movement of his wasn't, you know, litigated on a public level on a week to week basis. You know, he had a chance to kind of get better in the background. And now you have a guy who's so adaptable that he could be traded a week before the season and start and take maybe the worst roster in the league and have a competitive over the first month of the season. It really like to me, like looking at Josh Dobbs makes you question everything. And so if six years can do that for Josh Dobbs, why are we throwing guys out after two or three years? That's what I don't get about it. It's fair to make an assessment on a guy and say, like, he sucks now. But to say guys never going to be good, just ignore so much history. You know, like Alex Smith is a phenomenal example of it. Right. Like how many times was he given up on in San Francisco? Yeah. Like, oh, he can't play. But no one was looking at the fact that like he had five coordinators his first five years in the league. He had two head coaches. Everything was completely unstable around him. And then Jim Harbaugh gets there in 2011 says, no, I'm sticking with him. And he takes off and then he's in the league for another decade as a starter. You know, like it's just we have so many examples of the of why we shouldn't make definitive and declarative statements about young quarterbacks. And yet we do it over and over and over again. And like I do, I think like the intention of the Jets in the first place was we have to press the pause button with Zach Wilson. We may have wronged him by playing him too fast. Right. And by putting too much on him too early. And so the whole intention on bringing him back this year was to allow him the chance to do the Josh jobs and develop in the background for a year or two. And that got blown up. But just because that plan got blown up like that's not Zach Wilson's fault. That plan got blown up. It's not anybody's fault. So now you're going to just completely throw the kid out. Why? Because Aaron Rodgers got hurt. There's a lot of like really faulty logic that goes into the way that he's been talked about over the last couple of weeks, I think. I agree. I'm not just saying this because I wrote about it, but to not even, you know, I think we're in such a easy Twitter dunk society that when Zach Wilson and Nathaniel Hackett get paired up, everyone's just like, oh, this is going to be terrible. And without looking at any of the history of any of these guys. The AFC championship came with Blake, Blake Bortles. He got Ryan Nassib drafted out of Syracuse. I went to Syracuse. Do you know who was the quarter? The last quarterback drafted before Ryan Nassib, Donovan McNabb, Donovan McNabb. I was going to say I was going to say Troy Nunes. Like I think drafted as a quarterback. I think there was a couple of quarterbacks that turned into tight ends, but in literally broke all the school records with this guy. And then he got Kyle Wharton, I believe, to the doorstep of the playoffs. Yeah. Two MVPs with Aaron Rodgers after he was lost in the woods for a little while. The guy's good at what he does, you know, and we're seeing in Denver now, who knows? Make your own judgments about what happened there. But I think that this thing could work like, OK, yeah. The Jets are one in three, but their schedule softens up a little bit. They played a lot of their best defenses up front. You know, Zach Wilson is going to look bad against the Cowboys, but how many other people are going to look really bad against the Cowboys? Right. And now in the next few games, like they have the Broncos coming up. I mean, Zach Wilson could could legitimately put up 50 points against that team. The Eagles, who are really good defense giants, Jets, Giants before Halloween, which if he can handle the pressure. I think that's coming off a buy, too. So it's coming off a buy. You know what Wink Martindale is going to do. He does it well, but you know what he's going to do. And then the Chargers November six, the Raiders November 12th. You don't play a really good team. You play the Eagles in the bills in the next month and a half. Otherwise, you're good. Well, we're kind of like that's like and that was the whole logic behind this. And I think we talked about this last week. To me, the problem with going away from Zach Wilson, like in the whole in the first place, was a there's no better option out there right now. Right. And B, once you go away from him, you can't go back again. You know, so I think so. I think so. I knew that like it was if we bench him in consecutive years, we can't sell him to the locker room again.
Disney Plus Streaming Sets 'Artemis Fowl' Premiere Date
"Disney set the streaming -only premiere date for live -action sci -fi fantasy Artemis Fowl on its Disney Plus service worldwide, hoping it gives more juice to the subscription VOD product while all of the theaters are closed. Artemis Fowl, directed by Kenneth Branagh, will be exclusively available on Disney Plus beginning on Friday, June 12th. It had originally been set for a May 29th theatrical debut. Based on the best -selling book by Irish author Ian Culfer, Artemis Fowl follows the journey of a 12 -year -old criminal mastermind as he desperately tries to save his kidnapped father. Artemis must infiltrate an ancient underground civilization of fairies and track down the Oculus, the fairies' most powerful and coveted magical device, to pay the ransom. In a statement, Branagh said that Artemis Fowl would be as proud as I am that families around the world will now be able to enjoy his first amazing screen adventures together on Disney Plus. Artemis Fowl stars newcomer Ferdia Shaw in the title role, alongside Laura Macdonald, Josh Gad, Tamara Smart, Nonso Anozzi, Josh Maguire, Nikesh Patel, and Adrian Scarborough, with Colin Farrell and Judi Dench. Branagh and Judi Hofflin are producing, with Angus Moore Gordon and Matthew Jenkins serving as executive producers. Connor McPherson and Hamish McCall wrote the screenplay. Amid the COVID -19 crisis, Disney has postponed nearly every one of its forthcoming movie releases, including Black Widow, Mulan, The New Mutants, The Eternals, Jungle Cruise, and Indiana Jones 5. The media conglomerate is betting that Artemis Fowl will draw more subscribers into Disney Plus, which surpassed 50 million paying customers worldwide in its first five months of service.
A highlight from Your-Weekly-Tech-Update-EP-134
"Hello everyone! Welcome to your weekly tech update, the show that explores the newest, coolest, and sometimes mind -boggling side of tech available on the interwebs. I am your host, Ray McNeil. Coming up on the program today, Google Meet video calls are getting a Zoom -like layout. Impossible Foods rolls out to nearly one thousand new grocery stores and supermarkets, and will take your mind off the world and put a smile on your face with this week's Moment of Joy. That and a whole lot more coming up on today's edition of your weekly tech update, next. Google Meet will undergo huge changes over the next few weeks as the tech giant rushes to make it a more viable alternative to Zoom. To start with, the video conferencing tool is now directly accessible from within Gmail for business and education users. Those who prefer Zoom for its gallery -like layout that can show up to 25 participants at once would probably be more excited to get another feature coming later this month. Google will roll out a new layout option that can display up to 16 participants. There's already a Chrome extension that can mimic the Zoom feature for Meet, but its official release means there's no need for a workaround anymore. The company will also enhance Meet's video quality in dim lighting and its ability to filter out background noise in the coming weeks. In addition, an upcoming feature will allow users to display a specific tab open on their Chrome browser during a call. Zoom recently enjoyed a surge in popularity due to a shelter -at -home order, but it suffered from various privacy issues that has prompted a lot of organizations. including several school districts in the U .S. to ban it outright. With these changes, Meet could become a new decent alternative to Zoom, especially since its premium features are free to use until September 30th.

Preparing for an Autonomous Hospital Birth With Nurse Midwife Beth Connors
"Would really love to have a conversation about the things that you have seen inside of the system that can like really interrupt. And I mean, we've talked about some of them, but can really interrupt that autonomous birth experience. And then what do you recommend to kind of encourage mothers and the fact that a good autonomous birth experience inside of a hospital setting is possible if you implement certain things like, like what are some steps that women can take to get there? Yeah, I do think that like the first thing comes like first and foremost, like find a provider that is going to support you and that's truly going to take time to answer your questions. I, I feel like that is something that is almost overlooked because I mean, whether it's like finances or you have somebody that is recommended to you by a friend, like a lot of times you're just going to the OB that you've seen forever or that somebody, somebody recommends or is on your insurance. So I feel like even just like auditing in that way and interviewing different providers, like don't even be afraid to switch if it's not a good fit. Like it's not good for anybody if it's not a good fit. But I feel like that is something that I've helped a lot of moms like get out of that situation. Even if they're like 38 weeks and they're like, I can't switch now. And I'm like, you totally can, you could totally go to a random hospital and have your baby just on a whim. Like people do it a lot unplanned, but you can do that planned as well. Not that I recommend that necessarily, but if that's something that you feel inclined to do. So I feel like that's like the first thing really is just like feeling heard throughout those 40 weeks of pregnancy, finding somebody that is actually going to support you and like talk to you. And if you're not getting the education, like to really seek out that education and ask questions and look up like what interventions I should look up or what scenarios should I think about before with my partner, I think is a really helpful thing to do like an exercise. Like I have all of my clients do like an exercise of, okay, if you're in this situation and you know, you're 41 weeks or something and your doctor is like adamant that you get induced at 40. It's like usually like 41 and three or 41 and five, depending on like the practice. But if that's the case, like what is your next step? Like what are you going to do? And I feel like a lot of people in certain situations are like, I really don't know. Like, so it's nice to have that conversation before that actual day happens in terms of like inductions or if you're having a breach baby, if your baby's breach and you don't want a C -section, like is there a provider that will support you in that? Or if you've had a C -section, like can you try for a VBAC? I just feel like a lot of things like that are sometimes just overlooked until a year later on. And then it's all of a sudden, like I feel stuck and I don't want anyone to ever like feel stuck in where they are. And then that leads to more intervention and more uncertainty and more anxiety. And that's overall just not a good experience. That's a great idea to have like prompts for people to work through because you're right. Like a lot of the time it just sprung on people at the last minute and they're like, oh, I don't know when it feels like way too late to even scope out the options. Right. Or even knowing like when your partner, if like, if you're the dad and the mom is like, I want an epidural, like, okay, let's, you know that she doesn't want the epidural, but I know that she's in pain. I don't want to see her in pain. Like, how would you navigate that situation? Because that, I feel like 10 times out of 10 will happen. And the dad's like, what do I do? And you're like, what do you do? What should you do? What does she want you to do? You know her the best. I'll give you all the information. But having that conversation too, with like parents about like, there's the support person, like, how are they going to help best support you? Because I feel like now that I'm newly, I'm like newly offering doula support. So I haven't actually had an in -person client yet. I have a couple of scheduled for early next year. So I'm excited for that, but really preparing the families to like take over in that space. Like I'm hoping to prepare people enough, whether I'm your doula or your online birth educator or a friend. Like, I just want to give you the information that you can go do it on your own. And like, you don't need somebody like standing there coaching along the way, because it is such like an intimate experience. And it is something that you can learn and be empowered and have that experience for yourself. Like you don't need somebody to come and like save you to have your birth. Like you don't need anyone to have, to be there for you to have your dream hospital birth. I think when moms are like, I'm not a provider, I'm not a nurse, I'm not a doula. Like, how can I do that? And that's really empowering when they can like take on the education for themselves and the information and make those decisions and know that they made the decisions that led to their perfect birth. I think it's really special.
Nurse Midwife Beth Connors Shares Her Non-Traditional Career Journey
"Hello. I am so excited to be back with you all this week. In this episode, I sit down with Beth Connors, who is a certified nurse midwife and mom of two. She's the host of Your Birth Bestie Podcast, and she helps pregnant mamas navigate the hospital system without unwanted medical intervention. She has an online birth course and virtual doula services, and today we're going to talk about both of her birth experiences. One which was not quite what she wanted, another which was redemptive and amazing, both hospital births, and how you can make an empowered hospital birth a reality for you as well. So let's jump right in. Hello, Beth, I am so thrilled to have you on as a guest. Thank you for agreeing to come speak on my podcast. I think you will have so much valuable wisdom to share. So first, I just would love to hear a little bit about what your journey to becoming a nurse and becoming a midwife was like. If you would just let us know kind of your story and how you got here. Yeah, definitely. Well, thank you for having me. I'm excited to talk about this stuff today. Really starting with like my journey has been kind of nontraditional. I always knew that I wanted to work with like young kids or families in general. So I started really broad and got my bachelor's in human development and family studies, knowing that I could do just about anything with that. And then I was working as a nursing assistant. I knew I wanted to do something in the health care field, but just didn't really know exactly what. So I did that for a couple of years as I was deciding what to do and figured nursing also had a lot of opportunities to kind of go a lot of different directions. So I went this direct entry route so I could already have my bachelor's. I didn't have to go to like traditional nursing school. It was like an accelerated master's program. So I did the master's of nursing program and did a couple of clinicals and really felt strongly about labor and delivery. I felt like that was an opportunity for me to work with like a very vulnerable population with moms expecting their first baby a lot of the times or really overwhelmed, not sure what to do. Dads were sometimes involved or not involved, but it was very much like an unknown territory. So I thought that was very interesting coming from that perspective. So I went into L &D nursing and wanted to help families feel comfortable during that vulnerable time, like I said. But as I quickly learned in my role as a nurse, I didn't feel like I could advocate for them as much as I wanted to. So I was like, what else can I do? And so I was like, hey, after this program is over, let's start the midwifery program. So I continued on for another two years and became a certified nurse midwife. And I loved what I was doing. I thought I was definitely making a difference. And as I continued my education, did more clinicals, met more families, there still were like constraints of the hospital system. As a certified nurse midwife, people aren't always aware of like the differences between what a midwife is in the hospital versus home. I could attend births both in the hospital and at home, but my education was really based on hospital birth. So I knew if I wanted to stay in the system as a midwife, I would have to pretty much stay within the realm of their policies and procedures. And it wasn't always something that I agreed with and felt like there was more that needs to be done in terms of education. And that is why I went into midwifery versus nursing. Because as you probably know, when you get a patient, it's the time of delivery. You didn't know them at all before that. So I thought as a midwife, I was going to be able to have that education part, but I really felt disconnected to patients in the hospital because either moms and dads weren't interested in learning more, didn't know that they could learn more. They didn't know that they had choices. So that was just very much of a disconnect. And then I only had 15 minutes with them in an appointment and I was like, this is all just not what I wanted to do. Let's figure out how I can serve these moms wanting a hospital birth in a better way. So that's kind of where I am now with the online space and doing more of the childbirth education route. I'm now offering doula support both virtually and in person. So I feel like there's a lot more that needs to be done with the education aspect and the support aspect that was missing for me as a nurse and throughout all my, it was like eight years of education thrown out the window, but not really.

I want to welcome everybody listening on AMP. AMP is the first place to go to. If you want to hear this podcast early, make sure you subscribe to the Volume feed on AMP. Subscribe to my feed on AMP as well. We've got a great show for you today. Corey Erdman, writer over at BoxingScene .com, broadcaster at DAZN, ESPN +, plenty of other outlets. He joins me to talk about the news of the week. We're going to get into the Chris Eubank Jr. and Liam Smith fight. A lot of people surprised by that outcome. I want to talk about the possible resuscitation of Chris Eubank Jr. against Connor Benn. There's obviously a buzz building again for that fight. We have a big fight in the lightweight division, breaking news. I love when news breaks right before we record this podcast. Of course, Stevenson Frank Martin, that fight is a done deal for the fall on ESPN. We'll talk about that as well. A little bit later on, Erickson Lubin, 154 -pound title contender. He joins me. It's been quite the journey, I would say, for Erickson Lubin, who came into the game as this white -hot prospect. He was signed straight out of the amateur ranks. The first fighter signed to Iron Mike Promotions. Had a blistering start to his career. Then he had a couple of setbacks. The first -round knockout to Jermell Charlo. He had the knockout loss to Sebastian Vandora. He is back on September 30th facing Jesus Ramos as the co -main event of Canelo Alvarez, Jermell Charlo. I talked to Erickson about his journey through boxing to this point. Why at 27 years old he feels like he's just entering the best years of his career? Stick around for that conversation a little bit later in the show. At the top, I do want to touch on the news that broke on Sunday. Just touch on it because we're still missing a lot of information on what happened over in the UK with Brian McIntyre, the trainer for Terrence Crawford, the trainer for Chris Eubank. He was arrested on Sunday at the Manchester airport for possession of a firearm and possession of ammunition. As we record this, he is still being held over in the UK. If you know anything about UK gun laws, it's pretty serious stuff. The UK has some of the most strictest gun laws in the world and there are minimum sentences for these gun laws. A lot going on with Brian McIntyre, the trainer for Terrence Crawford. We'll talk more about it as we get more information. Right now, all we know is that he's been arrested, he's being held. For his sake, we hope for the best for BOMAC to deal with that particular situation.
A highlight from Father Frank Pavone
"Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. It's the show featuring Go -Go the Chimp. Nothing like a chimp to liven up the radio show. Easy there. Go -Go, Go -Go. No, Go -Go, no! Hey there, folks. Welcome back. As you know, the unborn are important to God, and it turns out God is important to me, so the unborn are important to me and to many of you. And someone who's been a really heroic figure, a voice for unborn human beings is Father Frank Pavone. He's the head of Priests for Life, and I have wanted to get him on recently to talk about this issue and specifically to talk about what is troubling to many people, not just Catholics. But Pope Francis's kind of mixed messages and waffling on the issue of speaking out strongly on behalf of the unborn. So Father Frank Pavone, welcome back to this program. Hey, Eric. It's great to be with you. Thanks so much. It was great to see you in person not too long ago, and thank you for all your work and advocacy as well. Well, this is important stuff. My gosh, I feel honored that I get to do anything. I don't think I get to do much, but whatever I get to do, I praise the Lord for it. You have been really at the forefront of this issue for many years. How many years has this been, you know, something that you've been involved in so directly? 47. I got involved in the pro -life movement three years after Roe v. Wade. I was a high school senior 1976, in went on my first March for Life. And then, of course, I went into seminary. I got ordained in 88. But then in 93, I got Cardinal John O 'Connor's permission to make fighting abortion my full -time work. So, Eric, I've been leading this Priest for Life movement for 30 years now. Now, Cardinal O 'Connor, I'm a New Yorker, he was a heroic figure. He spoke strongly against evil in its various forms. But it seems like not just this pope, but that many American bishops are not in the mold of Cardinal O 'Connor. Since I'm not a Catholic, I'm a very pro -Catholic, non -Catholic, I'm always mystified. And I always want to ask my faithful Catholic friends, such as yourself, what do you make of so many leaders in the Catholic Church who don't seem to share your views on this issue? It's baffling to me. It is baffling, Eric. You're certainly not alone in that. You know, I often think about the fact that when it comes to popes, we've been spoiled for most of the lifetime of those listening to us now. We've had saints as popes, John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul II, right? What a great papacy he had. And there was clarity and there was conviction and there was pastoral compassion and there was the uniting of people across multiple, multiple avenues. And now we have a pope who seems to be just confusing people left and right with so many things that he says. You know, Eric, the way I'm dealing with this is very simple. I say to people, you know, it's okay to be confused about something the pope says. We never have to be confused about what the faith says. So I ask people to focus on six simple words, what the church has always taught. That's the anchor. That's an anchor to which the pope himself is responsible. He's the vicar of Christ. Vicar of Christ is a referential term, right? It's not the word of the pope. It's the word of Christ that he's supposed to be articulating as the rest of us are to do as well. So, you know, it's a time of confusion. These popes are men. They're human. They're sinners just like we are. And they're going to have their own ideologies at times. And I'm afraid that's what we're dealing with in this case. Well, I think not just non -Catholics, but many Catholics are themselves confused about the pope. They say, oh, isn't the pope infallible? And I have to I mean, I've been on Newsmax and I am, you know, as a non -Catholic having to clarify. No, the pope is not infallible. He can say idiotic things. If he's speaking ex cathedra, that's a different story. But he's almost never speaking. No pope is hardly ever speaks ex cathedra. So it's a doctrine that does not apply to the blitherings of human beings who happen to be pope. It applies in a different way. But so many people are confused by this. And so many people, particularly Catholics, think if the pope says something, I have to agree with it. Of course, that's not true. That's not the teaching of the Catholic Church. But can you say more about that? You just touched on it. Yeah, that's a crucially important point. I've been making that point recently as well. When we say the infallibility of the pope, what we're really talking about here is the faithfulness of Jesus Christ to his bride, the church. The Lord is never going to let his entire body, the church, depart from his teaching. I mean, that would be, when you think about it, a severing, right, of the head of the body, Christ from the rest of the body. That can never happen. Now, that doesn't mean that individuals in the church can't get it wrong or fall away. They can and they will. And so the pope has a particular role when he's talking about, in an official capacity, the things that the church already believes, the things that the church has always held, those things that are rooted in the word of God and the teaching of Christ. When he pronounces to the world, as you said, ex cathedra or in certain other circumstances where it's clear a he's articulating firmly held belief of the church, what we believe is the Lord is not going to let the church go astray. It has absolutely nothing to do with agreeing with everything the pope says, especially in an instance like this that came up recently. He's giving informal comments to a group that he's sitting with, where he'll give comments off the cuff on a plane ride back to the Vatican. And, you know, this is not the way that official church teaching gets proclaimed. This is the comment of a man who happens to be sharing his opinion. Well, that's what's so important to clarify. Now, you just wrote an article at gatewaypundit .com. What is the article at gatewaypundit .com about that you've just written? It responds to this statement of the pope recently that, oh, well, you know, in America, who's who are they are, they have a backwards mentality and they're replacing faith with ideology. And I basically made two points. If by going backwards, you mean holding on to the changeless teachings of the church? Well, then that we consider that being faithful. And secondly, as far as replacing faith with ideology, if you want to find the culprits there, it's the Democrat Party. It's people like Biden and Pelosi who will say, oh, I'm a practicing Catholic. And in the meantime, they're pushing for unrestricted abortion. That's replacing faith with ideology. And then they commit the further sin of saying, oh, but this is the faith. This is, you know, misguided if the pope is trying to talk to those of us who are in the conservative movement, those of us who are aligning with policies that essentially fall on the, quote, right side of the equation. Well, this is what the pope and the bishops and everybody in the church need to realize is the Democrats right now have set themselves up against everything we cherish, against faith, against human life, against freedom, against America. Unless we realize the nature of the battle right now and stand up and defend those things, we're not going to have a Catholic Church in America. We're going to have the preachers of the gospel increasingly persecuted, thrown in prison, and our religious freedom denied. That's what the agenda of the left is. I didn't know you were going to go there, but what you're saying is exactly what I've been saying a whole lot, especially over the course of the last year. I wrote a book called Letter to the American Church where I am trying to explain to people that times have changed and we cannot pretend that the Democrats are represented by Tip O 'Neill. We have to understand the reality. And when you're dealing with a political party, it would be like dealing with a political party that is pro -slavery. And then you say, well, I don't want to be political. Well, if you're some kind of a Christian, you're obliged to be political if one of the political parties has embraced slavery. If you're silent on that, you're a pig, you're a fool, you're a hypocrite. You cannot pretend that silence is an option when things are that stark. So we can talk about slavery, but what about abortion? What about all these other things? So when I come back or when we come back, I want to talk to you about all these other issues and how if you're any kind of a Christian, you have to take them seriously. We'll be right back.
A highlight from The No Interruptions Podcast - Who will be the Democrat's 2024 Nominee?

So if you get frustrated when you hear a bunch of people on TV talking over each other and yelling at each other, if you get mad at big mouth Mike Gallagher for interrupting callers, this is a great place for you to settle in and hear two sides of an issue from two smart people who are going to present an opposing point of view. As you know, I've been maintaining for a long time now that it seems inconceivable to me that Joe Biden can be the nominee in 2024. I went on vacation last week in London and what Brits are saying about President Biden was pretty astounding. So let me bring two people into this conversation. John D. O 'Connor is an experienced trial lawyer. He's been practicing law in San Francisco since 1972. This is a guy you want in your corner if you're ever in hot water. He's the author of the new book, The Mysteries of Watergate, What Really Happened. And I'm really looking forward to reading his book. And Mr. O 'Connor definitely believes that Gavin Newsom will be the Democrat 2024 presidential nominee, which is something that I've sort of leaned into. Now, Douglas McKinnon is a former White House and Pentagon official. He was a writer in the White House for Presidents Reagan and George H .W. Bush. He writes for Town Hall, hundreds of columns in every major paper. And he's the author of the book, The Liberty 56 Lessons from Those Who Risked All to Sign the Declaration of Independence. So gentlemen, to both of you, I appreciate you taking time to join us today on the No Interruptions podcast. Mr. O 'Connor, let me start with you. You believe that Gavin Newsom will definitely be the nominee. I think a lot of signs point to that as well. To my vacation last week over in the UK, I started asking a bunch of Brits, Uber drivers and waitresses and waiters what they think about the American political scene. And it was astounding how many Brits would say to me, unsolicited, I can't believe you have a guy who's in the condition that Joe Biden is in as your commander in chief. They can't believe it across the pond. They cannot, and they certainly don't think it's sustainable. Is it your belief that based on Biden's infirm, you know, the feeble, you know, out of it physical condition he's in, is that what leads you to believe that Governor Newsom will be the Democrat nominee? Well, that's number one, Mike. The King has no clothes. Our media does not really publicize as infirmities as they should, but it's just obvious to anybody who's observing such as the Brits you're talking about. There's no mystery here. Now, think about it. It is a year and a half away from the next election. This guy can barely make it now. He can't complete a sentence, really can't carry a thought past a few seconds.

"But yeah, I mean, I grew up in a family system with a mom and a dad and they separated and then divorced for 9 years, no other siblings, neither one of them remarried or really even dated anybody. And so, yeah, I was part of this kind of tiny system. And there was a ton of conflict and hostility through the separation and the divorce process. That was very long. And I was tiny. I was in first grade when it began. And yeah, there was just a lot of fighting, a lot of tension, a lot of manipulation, a lot of gaslighting, a lot of paranoia, a lot of emotional flooding. I mean, literally everything you could possibly think of was part of that experience. And I love you in the book. It all. I learned how to engage with the system that operated that way. And especially my father, who was a master at manipulation, he was very quick with his words. He was, yeah, I mean, even before the term gaslighter, you know, was even popularized. It was like there was a lot of manipulation and yeah, just like quick on his feet, right? And OG gaslighter. Yeah. He invented the term. At this middleman, got it. And I always talk about, obviously, part of my work is family systems and origin stories. And so I think about the origin story. And the first time where I was observing both through observation and through experience, the manipulation really wasn't directed at me as a kid, but I watched the manipulation with my mom. And I saw in her someone who was not able to stay on her toes and keep up and it was confusing for her and it was destabilizing for her. And so I watched as a little kid and I saw what he was doing. And so I talk about how when you are a kid who's reality is being denied or you're watching, manipulation. There's something about this need to be right that emerges. So I would battle with my dad at a certain point and be like, nope, that's not what you said, or nope, that's not what you did. And I was the only person who could actually catch and watch and call him on the things that he was doing and kind of trip him up with it. And that turned me into an adult who needed to be right in conflict. Because right, meant safety, you know, right meant that I wasn't being duped. I wasn't being fooled. That was a position of stabilization for me. And so when Connor and I would get into conflict, there was this part that would emerge where I needed to be right. I needed to prove my point. I would go to all lengths to show Connor that he was wrong and that I was right. And so you when you're asking this question about why it's important..

"And even though there had been time and space between it, I think there was still a part that wondered or thought maybe this person would reenter into my world. Yeah, there was a tenderness there, right? It was like this person had reentered another relationship and Connor was actually coming off of a relationship. And so it was interesting because it was a very there was familiarity to for me in my experience of it. There was familiarity and like, oh, this is really tender and raw. I've been in the situation before where a person can change their mind and go back into a dynamic that they had before. And as Connor was exiting this relationship, for me, there was a sensitivity there. I was like, oh, this is either like my wounding or this is going to be such a beautiful healing opportunity for me. You know, that line is so thin. And it's so heart right. It's like wisdom and discernment and yeah, like our awareness and our ability to have these conversations with each other is oftentimes that difference maker between just being in a pattern versus being in the healing of something that gives us that new ending. I'm grateful that, of course, where our relationship developed into was the healing for me, but there were times in the beginning stages where Connor was definitely pulling me back off the edge a bit because I was like, you know, I know this, you know? This is so familiar for me. And I definitely don't want to experience the same thing over and over and over again. And so yeah, there was definitely a Ron is there even though there had been a lot more space between the ending of my previous relationship than for Connor. So there was this fear of history repeating itself that he was would potentially get back with an ex-girlfriend? Is that kind of what was showing up for you? Yeah, I wasn't sure. That I was going to go back. No, I didn't know that, yeah, I don't know that I was concerned about that. But I think just sort of like you're full availability, right? Got it. Got it. It's like a normal question, right? It's like if somebody's coming out of a relationship, how much time do you normally need after that relationship? Because it was, you know, it was a more long-term relationship that I had done that I had exited. And so there was apprehension on her part. I see. And that makes sense, right? I think that's even if you haven't gotten out of relationship recently. We're constantly wondering how ready and other person is. And sometimes we just don't know. So something you said earlier Connor that made me think, well, that's so true with love comes logistics. So what do you think is the chicken or the egg here?.

"I think he'd realize it. You should go and you should talk to him. I he has he's injure ship that's what it was. She was looking for in term and very humbled to say that out of an she clearly saw something in the main. God blesses won't because out of all the thousands of students in the business program she could have chosen and brought this opportunity to. She only brought it to me she. She's like no sam's meet this kid. You gotta talk to this kid so she pulled me aside told me about it. She said go talk to him. So i i went to talk to sam. I remember printing out like my business plan for vixen like show my entrepreneurial deal those oh proud for it and then we met and and he got to tell him about the idea and i fell in love with the giveback model giving back three to five percent. On every order to a nonprofit partner there are small team scrappy scrappy startup. going onto the small business phase. And at the end of the meeting he said. Do you want to join. It's unpaid and i. And i pause for a second and just something in me was like shouting. Yes take it to hell. And and so i was like. Let's fucking do it man. Let's let's john. i'll be your work for. I can do the same. And so for the entire summer. Twenty seventeen software into junior year. I worked it was like six fourteen hour days on average. We're we're doing seventy hours a week for free. I remember doing the calculations. I overstated in fifty hours for free that summer while everybody else was that he's bar laimbeer among the joined the tournament's going i respect all that i had my fun too i totally respect it but i was. I made the sacrifices man. I put it overseas almost seven hundred dollars completely free for the startup. That had had some promise. But i believed in it and i dedicated my time to it and and so that then eventually led into a full time job with that company. They eventually Basically i guess it that. Basically sam noticed my ranch mobility once again and and kind of gave me a lot more power and a lot more authority and so we were heading towards a head heading on the way toward bankruptcy or you know things were not looking so well financing was not looking that great so bankruptcy was an option at one point and so i was like you know what fuck that man. We're gonna we're gonna turn this around we're gonna we're gonna fix this and so amongst a laundry list of things that sam obviously did is the founder and ceo that. I just didn't see. Because i was behind doors and a he sacrifices life so much money to make it out of that we'd but also he gave me that authority to say look like i trust. You have all people on this team you know to really help was turns around and so what we did. Is we basically have but third. Did whatever the in a thirds the staff from like nine full time which included some family members down to three of us fulltime. We went from decent small. Small biscottis is to a lean mean team of a few people took over sales portfolio. Put a put a theoretical wall between the customers and him and said look. I'm gonna handle all of this. You take care of the executive level stuff. I'm taking the whole sales portfolio over. I'm going to be the only one talk to customers now. So you can spend your time doing things. And i'm going to be taken care of this stuff tweaked. Couple things. we charge this charge more their fees that he was always willing to be the nice and wave because they're their friends. Because you know. Sam grew up here and a lot of these relationships. He had business. Were from you know being a local and so me just being the just the guys the college kid that he that he brought on and he willing to let make those decisions. i said. no sorry. We're not waiving that for you this time you're going to have to pay those fees that everybody else pays and so it. Was those little things that we just tactics that we started doing long story short with that is i think i came on. It was like sub. Four hundred thousand in revenue drove it to seven hundred fifty thousand reverence doubled the revenue by the time i left within two year time period under my portfolio brought over one point five million in sales and turn the company around to their first profitable year over two point five million in total sales and the first profitable year within about two two and a half years of being there and so it was. It was a wonderful story that all started with the Professor stout in march of two thousand seventeen saying you know what you need to talk to this guy sam. Same you talk to this guy. Conrad that you guys do some special elliott and that and that led into some some magic and so that was a lot of raw business experience too but story is not over my friends stories all right and this is where now we kind of tile out of these. These loose ends together with major changes sandler time march. Something like that. June is is before the semester resenting. I know that she pulled me to the side again and said connor. You know we're working on this new major. I think it'd be perfect for you. Seeing track record with changing so many majors and not really knowing if if there's a predetermined path for you she's like you're an entrepreneur. You have what it takes to start a company and so she told me about this new entrepreneur major that they're considering rolling out. We had the minor but we have a major yet. She said keep an eye out on it. I think you'd be really perfect for. Why took that as go enroll in it tomorrow. So i went to my guidance. Counselor sat down and said hey. Professor stout mind showed entrepreneurship. Professor told me that this new major that prepared for it. Can you know me and the counselors like looking at me like we have no idea what the fuck talking about like. We don't have that. We have a minor short. You're not talking about the minor i said. No i'm positive. We're we have major. And she walked out of the room. The counselor walked out of the room. Talks to the other guidance counselors and locker hall and she comes back and she's like shaking her head. We have no idea what you're talking about kid and left that office with no decision being made no advancement in my degree change while still with resort hospitality. And i went back to class few days later and as i'm walking in professor stout looking at me a big old smirk on her face shaking your head in in in a in a comical kind of way and And so she puts she called me over and then she's like you got me a slap on the wrist and like what are you talking about. She's like you were not supposed to go.

"Mostly internships part time. Jobs work based learning co-ops minimal full-time jobs. It was all about that hands on earlier. Stage exponential learning so is this three sided marketplace that allowed faculty to manage run their reports employers to have access to the pool of students into get their opportunities in the faces of the students and the students obviously to gain the gain the experience opportunities. So that's that's the that's the meat of what it did. But i guess symbols answer your question is it was it was lee county put in that effort and the dollars in the time to make it happen. Whoa that's cool. yeah it was. It was a lot of fun. It was really cool. We had a good time with them. Wow yeah question for you. Did you work like did you start working when you were pretty young Yes short answer is yes my first real job on. W2 whatever was sixteen. I think the law whatever it was But no i would. I was the neighborhood. Snow blower leaf raker Would would do would help you re escape your garden in the spring and as cash cash from all the neighbors. I'd be riding up the street on my parents. Sit down mower collect ten bucks. After mowing the lawn so yeah. I was very big Into like outdoorsy kind of stuff. I mean 'cause. I didn't jump into like any office i work at a young. I was never. I've never been a cubicle person. I knew that at a young age. I mean looking at how i got short short. John sandals with socks in a long sleeve. This is actually one of my first companies is this is my first company big entertain. We talk about that a little bit and this is me man. I'm never going to be the briefcase carrying suits tailored suits in my house. They're all nice. And tailored. And i love him but for special occasions not for the daily. Go to the office but the suit on. That's not and so. I knew i would never be that person out. Was that free range. You're not gonna be able to get me under your thumb. You know so Yeah did a lot of work a lot of fun stuff and earlier age that earn me some good money so you seem now that i'm talking you more. You seem like the kind of person that was working at a young age. Eighty dollars from a lemonade. Stand when time hell yet but like so with with this do you. What do you what kind of impact you feel like working early had on your ability to on your work ethic and then counting your ability to see maybe some of these types opportunities that you're you're going into now what impact you think. It had good question. Wow okay yeah. My brain is firing with all these spas on got acknowledged very obvious that we talked about. Let's mary a few points together. Is it gave me that free range and self creation to understand. How do i work best. What do i enjoy doing. What do i have the capabilities and making a big impact on and then the opposite. What do i fucking hate doing. What am i not going to be. What am i not the person of and to avoid that. Because i never person to you know Completely put up a wall. I don't i don't put a while. I will always acknowledged both sides. I'll always kind of play the balance of both sides to make sure. I'm still making right decision but it was that acknowledgement in early exposure to figuring out who. I was as a worker. As a person in this workforce or you know eventually would be in the workforce if we're talking about a young age and so it was definitely those those stats self awareness and self identification at a young age. That then helped me put my own self on. And of course i had massive support Put me helped. Put me on the right path to pursuing. You know the career that i knew i would enjoy doing have passion doing would surround myself with the right people that i knew. I enjoy running myself with so is absolutely self-awareness self-identity And i think it was also not think i know it was also a very young earned sense of discipline and would it meant to put in the time and the effort and also worked smart to Like you know saint before you know i. I was the one during the summers where my friends. Maybe we're riding skateboards in a scooters around the park. And i couldn't hang out until three pm 'cause i had five launched them out as seniors old and it's like why enjoy doing this stuff so i i learned and i understood. The work ethic that did take and it was going to take to ever reach the potential. I thought i had in the success. That i wanted to achieve. Did you feel like because you worked early when you started to get into more of like the quote real jobs that it was kind of easier to connect with the older people. The people that were already working like did you feel like you plug into the mindset. One hundred percent a hundred percent hundred percent. You know one of the one of the things. I think i'm always. I'm i will always be very proud of it. It always ring in. The back of my head is remember. I'd come home after hanging out with a new friend or a friend for a period of time out. Maybe i had to sleepover. We had a couple of where it was in a row. And my mom you know they drop me off will be like all you must hate it by now. He's probably got in your nerves and the parents would be like. Oh gosh no we. He's still much more respectful than mike. Here you like a parent which whispers in a while. I was apparent whisper and so substitute that. Now to your point with an adult i i think i gained a sense of communication to adults and not just about saying what they wanted to hear. It wasn't about that is understanding how the adult mind worked and how they communicated and again what it was going to take if i ever wanted to reach that level of maybe somebody who i was inspired by and so he taught me to never be comfortable with how i currently was always live up to somebody who's already doing what i wanna do in has already surpassed that threshold so absolutely it gave me that sense of of of communication but also pointed out ability to work very cohesively and very diligently with someone twice or three times my age and it was great. Because sometimes they'd they'd see a sixteen year old walking in when i first started the real jobs like you pointed out sixteen seventeen. They'd look at this kid. Like all god

And then we finally not admitting we lost the battle or the war or anything, but we finally changed our flex numbers, right? So you look at the first chair now, it's the first chair one 31st J one 20. It's not the first year ten. So we're slowly getting towards that way. But that's one of the bigger internal battles we have at full tilt too. It's like we are that original three piece shell, right? So how do we stay with our original DNA? But also capture a lot more of this consumer base that's so used to seeing these four piece buckle boots. So it's something we have this gigantic audience that loves our boots. And if we change it at all to make new consumers happy, how is that core audience going to feel? So it's something that we're looking at internally. And we haven't really decided how we're moving forward, not quite yet, but obviously I think the ascendant is a good example and the descendant with the buckle system there. And just like a quick disclaimer, the classic, the original shell, that's never going to go away for us. It's a hard claim. It's a heavy claim right here. Every day. Yeah. I mean, hey, I've only been here two and a half years, so ever is a long time, right? But I mean, that is the core of full tilt right there. That is the rightly shell. That thing has swappable souls, right? And you can get so low in your boot. It's so lightweight. That's what the entire U.S. freestyle ski team uses on talking moguls and aerials. Here, specifically, that's what they use. And there's a reason they use that, right? So a lot of athletes love that boot. So again, it's that battle of finding making all these athletes happy and keeping everything that they want, but also maybe slowly down the road expanding into making consumers happy in boot fitters happy and making more of a I don't want to use the word traditional because we're not going to be the same as everybody, but along those lines, I guess. What's next for this is my loaded final question. What's next for lions keys? Is there anything that you can talk about that you're extremely excited about coming down the pipeline? Yeah, I think the biggest thing for us working on is obviously pushing the blade agenda. And really focusing and pushing that ski a bit more. And then obviously we've got some new athletes that we're working with Johnny Merrill and Jay hop finger and elevating them with Dylan siggers and Garret. So creating some really unique content around the blade and eventually that's going to lead to something a bit bigger that will be coming up soon. But it's going to be very much so highlighting those guys and kind of pushing that free right agenda. We'll also, of course, still rolling with the traveling circus, keeping that going. I'll go ahead and say new traveling circus band just got wrapped as well. So we're kind of bringing that back. So traveling services and it's 14 seasons. So while we're focusing with Jake, Johnny Dylan Garrett and pushing that freed, we're still keeping the gas down on our freestyle and our traditional traveling circus as much as we ever can. So I think just kind of continue to push that free ride and that more funner side of things, but also focusing on growing into that free ride with some of our new athletes and pushing us some good content that they're going to be having.

"Max. You're listening to the pursuit podcast on the outer bones, network, the Audubon's collective. I don't know, Audubon's puts it out, so I gotta wrap them because they wrap me. Episode 20 5. I didn't think I'd get 25 episodes out. I don't know if you guys thought I'd get 25 episodes out. But it works. People dig it, keep leaving your reviews that really helps me. It helps jabber. It's my same shtick. I'm super pumped on this episode because I recorded it at K two headquarters. I never thought I'd go to K two headquarters. That might not be that exciting to some people. But to me, that was, I mean, that was the Mecca of me growing up was K two skis, K two skiing. Obviously line skis, east coast. Brand starting, and then, you know, K two bottom. But long story long, Connor Clayton is my guest. He's the marketing guru behind line skis full tilt. He was on track to go pro. He was essentially pro, plagued by injuries. We talk all about it. And then we dive into what makes line skis line skis and how they keep having more fun every year. And continuing to make really great skis that are fun. Again, let's keyword on fun skiing is fun. But no, they make really great skis. Let's keep really well. But they're playful and they're forgiving and, you know, skiing got way too serious for a really long and Lion skis is always been the driving force and Connor's a young gun. He welcomed me into the headquarters, gave me a little tour. There isn't an eruption because of Garth's jabber had to peak his head in. And I can't have anything nice. But whatever. Episode 25, Connor Clayton, I have to apologize because my audio is a little echoey. Good thing Connor talks more than I do. I'm still learning, especially in person interviews. But it came out rad. My good friend Charlie, charlier and fuller helped me on the audio side kind of dumbed it down a little bit for me. So it's really good. I'm excited. I'm excited about all my episodes. Connor, thank you so much. Line, full tilt. Go look out their new line. They just dropped it, it's amazing. Episode 25, the pursuit. Oh, there we go. All right, Connor, who are you? What do you do, man, you're live on the podcast. We're live. Hi, I'm Connor. I'm the marketing manager at Lion skis and folks up boots today. We're here in Seattle, Washington. Beautiful day, not raining. Well, hopefully it actually does rain because the fires are getting pretty bad. But you want me just to start at the beginning and talk about myself? Yeah, how'd you get here? How did you obviously you're here now? We don't have to go way back, but you grew up east coast. Yeah. Yeah, so I grew up on the east coast. Lived a lot of my life in Ohio before moving to Connecticut and around 5th grade or so. So that's kind of going way back. But lived in Connecticut and majority of my life probably about ten years or so. And that's kind of where I found my love for skiing growing up in Ohio and originally before that I was born in Canada. So I've got hockey in my blood, so a lot of hockey growing up. And that was kind of the thing to do when I was younger in Ohio and then moving to get that going up until it kind of nearing high school kind of junior high high school was always playing hockey on the team. And then just met a couple of buddies who would go skiing at a place called ski sundown, which I lived in simsbury. And sundown was probably about 20, 25 minutes away from my house since very. And small hill, maybe four or 500 foot vertical mainly just two chairlifts, fixed quads, that will take you up all the way to the top, fixed triples actually excuse me. It had night skiing, open till ten p.m., and so I'd skied a little bit back in Ohio. My parents taught me how to ski at perfect north slopes in Indiana. So I was good enough to go with some buddies and go see what kind of get skiing was all about. And I just learned that what they like to do is go through the train park a bunch when I was super young. And so as I kind of got a little bit more and more into skiing, I turned into that kid that everybody hates in terms of going off the sides of the rails and thinking it does a really cool jumps and really fun to do, so I totally did that in 5th and 6th grade. But that's an appropriate test. To be doing that. Yeah, I thought so. That's all looking back at that now. But yeah, as I kept on kind of skiing, I just kept on going with this group of friends and every day after school, we pretty much would just beg our parents to go drive us to ski sundown and drop us off so we could ski until like 9 or ten at night and luckily for us we had some amazing parents who were willing to do that at least two times a week. So I started doing that in between hockey practices and then I just kind of kept on enjoying skiing more and more and more. And then as I got later into junior high, I finally said to my mom dad, I was like, hey, I think I want to focus on skiing a lot more, like I'm really having a lot of fun with this. I think I'm going to stop playing hockey. And my dad being a Canadian his, I think I might have broke his heart a little bit, but I think eventually he got over it and like I said, they're super supportive. So they're willing to let me go that route and really focus on skiing a bit more. And when I say focus at that point, there's just something I really love to do. It's not like I was trying to do anything with it. Of course, I'm like 13 year old kid at that point. Everybody has the ambitions to be a pro skier. So it's like, yeah, I'm gonna totally do that, but. Yeah, but good for you for like knowing you were done with hockey. Yeah. Well, yeah, it's like, you know, if you're balancing two things in the winter when you want to focus on one and you're clearly having more fun doing one over the other than why not just keep doing it and put your full attention to it, right? So yeah, that allowed me to really kind of ramp up how much I was skiing and going into high school, started skiing the park a lot more with my friends. We'd go to ski center on the weekends because I didn't have hockey in the weekends anymore now. And we'd really start hiking rails and trying to learn some tricks watching a bunch of YouTube videos. And we're watching super old like TJ schiller video of how to do a rodeo 5 40 and trying to learn all these tricks and watching all of the pros at the time on YouTube and trying to teach myself how to do a 360 on a jump or anything. And eventually you'd learn and you'd landed the first time and it's just the most amazing feeling that would kind of keep you coming back for more and more and more. So that's just kind of what I ended up doing almost any free time I had throughout high school, I think in my freshman and sophomore year there had three good buddies and we would go to the hill, any chance we'd get and we'd always try to push ourselves to do a front two or learn a front four, try to do our first front swap. And so I really just kind of fell in love with the park scene because at ski sundown, you're either skiing park or you're skiing, you know, 500 foot vertical run that takes 30 seconds, then you're going to have to do that again. So in my eyes, that got boring pretty quick, but the park is always something that I think there's something new and shiny. There's something new you can try. There's something that you can learn. And so that would just open my eyes to this whole entire environment, and I just kind of fell in love with it. And then from there, kind of in my sophomore year of high school, I think I experienced what the green mountains of Vermont are in terms of had one good buddy to everybody's Kurt scholar, Chris frula, and they kind of introduced me to.

"Fights means that we're speaking about the all time great fighters or the all time greats within that era oscar de la. Hoya fighting is there same thing. With connor mcgregor color mcgregor ran through rip roaring. Beat everybody knocked out the great josie aldo at the time had been knocked out hadn't been beat in almost a decade ruled the featherweight division in. Wabc and you have seen for awhile though. L. metaphor know look like three or four years. That maybe maybe the mcgregor was going to be on his way to becoming one of those guys to becoming a john jones to becoming a chris. Cyborg to becoming anderson self to becoming a dimitrius johnson to become one of those guys but when everything is all said and done i can't base three years of greatness from mcgregor in compare that to or put him on the same level as those who dominated were great for a longer period of time but beadle on the money fantastic also wonderful. That doesn't mean that when it comes to the art of fighting for a promotion that you should be considered one of the greatest even though you were a great talker even though you were a great promoter hell that was the case kill chill. Sonnen should be considered a lot better than what he actually is. We're bringing in. You know how someone performs on the mike and help. Someone can sell a fight. Don't give a fuck about someone selling the fight. You know what sells me on the fight. Can the guy fight or not that sells me on the fucking fight. So that's how. I come up with my thoughts and opinions about fucking conor mcgregor all that trash talking and all that bullshit and everything man when he's not gonna josie aldo when holloway and poor for the first time. And all these great fighters and still talk shit. All right. i'm i can I can understand that but when you no longer there fighter and you're still talking that shit you can go fuck yourself.

I really didn't lose it with a doctor stoppage again. There is no wind loss. Doctor stoppage win or you lose. You did not win you lost so there you go and i'll be. I'll be honest with you. I didn't watch the fight on saturday right now. I'm cool on the ufc because you know basically as long as they're gonna let people like mcgregor along with they're gonna let people colby covington run the roost in terms of some of the bullshit that talk about some of the insensitive racist nonsense that they talked about. I'm not really a dig in the ufc. As much as i used to But you know up and not only that not in the color mcgregor anymore. This isn't twenty thirteen. This is a twenty fifteen this twenty sixteen in ocala mcgregor's old news. To kinda mcgregor. There are many people still believe in the guy that can still be a champion.

"Connors, who was in first know why? Because he's in first You're so smart if I would have picked Definitely would've picked Connors. Had, you know, we picked right now, actually right now, Brian cozier with us on the Western hotline tee to green host right now, Would you pick Corey Connors of your 10? I would not. You would still not do it. He would not make your time. Well, if I guess if yes, if you're letting me swap out like my bottom guy like Burger, who's like, plus 30 right now, I feel like but yes, I would be that, but no if you were making a new list I was making a new list based upon the current leader board where I picked him up new information. You have new information? Yes. Ah, yeah. I mean, I guess where he said. I guess I would have to and he's capable. He's had a very, very good year. So I guess I shouldn't be surprised that he's playing where he's at so far this year, so In that sense. I mean, he finished eighth at the Masters. Finished. Or the following week of the R B C heritage. What He hasn't won The last homely looking here, Hmm. Two years on the PGA Tour, and my job is to pick the winner. So maybe I'll stick with that answer. All right. You sound like you're not sure, right? But you're not. So how I have not like looked at the entire leaderboard here, but it's not been a good first day for you, right. No. Overall, it doesn't look that good, I think. I mean some of the summit. Here's the thing. There's not. Ah, whole much bunch. There's not a ton of guys. That are under par like these. If you look down the list at like the sum of my bigger names that are like plus one and plus two other fine three like I feel like they're in it, but you look at the quantity of golfers they have to pass. That looks a little more daunting, Like, all right, let's you know, Let's take the guys that are a plus two right now. Um, I mean that Right now putting you into a tie for 68 like that would be on the verge of missing the cot. But plus two boys, I mean, five. Back of what a few minutes ago was the lead before Congress went up, too, But I mean, if I If I take Connor's out of this and say Well, three is the number you know, minus three is the number you're five shots off the lead at a major doesn't seem that bad. But then you look at it that puts you in a tie for 68 like your you better make sure you have a good day than tomorrow. Otherwise you're done like There's just there's a There's a large quantity, I guess. Let's relate this to what we always say about the savers like during this historic runs in March, right, not about the number of points behind the last team that's got the playoff spot. It's about the number of teams to leapfrog. So that's I guess what I'm thinking about right now, And I guess maybe I should've taken Phil Mickelson. Now He's playing well. He's up to minus two. Did you do that right now? Give you another chance, Would you would you would take Mickelson over Connors? Uh, it That you know how long my emotions get in the back in here because I'm seeing a filmmaker Birdie and give a little small fist pump Got me going there. If you're asking me between the two. The smarter pick probably is Connors but Why? That would be a cool story of Nicholson into the pointing, Um and and I guess they would both be meeting Connors was still in the top 20 in the top 20 betting. I know Mickelson would be outside the top 20 for my double money to win. Which obviously has the layer of maybe that decision. Absolutely. Absolutely. So, Brian, What is the story of the day been? I mean, I could see the wind is blowing in the wind. You mentioned it yesterday. When you're out with us, and it's supposed to be like this, I guess all weekend, right? Yeah, I think it's been a factor. I think that guy's air hitting what I would consider to be Okay, decent tee shots, but the wind is just drifting him enough to put him in trouble. There's so many areas on this course, which I guess for those that are gonna watch the Ryder Cup later this year. We've seen lots of majors before at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin. They are calling these officially bunkers on the broadcast that calling him sand areas like that. So if you remember Dustin Johnson the penalty that now ultimately probably wouldn't be a penalty the way they're ruling it this week, But because there's so many So many sand areas everywhere and because ah, lot of it is on level ground. It's not like you fall. Into a bunker on some of these places. Some of it is essentially on the same level of the grass, and there's not much not much difference Sometimes between or where's the sand start? Where does the grass start? That sort of thing? So there Allowing players to take practice swings in the sandy areas this week. So if you're if you're watching that tomorrow or the rest of the coverage today, go thinking likewise in the penalty that because the PGA of America said this week that you can Actually touched the sand without a penalty over under a number of phone calls made to complain about someone that a viewer saw doing what they think is cheating. This ought to put this ought to bring that down fellow. But I think people will be confused about that rule. Mike is what I'm saying like that They'll see guys doing that and think that they're breaking a rule. But in fact it's allowed. So I'm thinking people will overreact to that and call..

That's never on the board never and then moving guys in and out like we saw nic robertson. Scott saverin played a game. And i think they're trying to get a feel for okay. What could or lineup lookalike. And then guys. I know geyser because i've been on teams like this. You're looking for the new guy to come in and start playing well. They got to wait for netflix. And then they gotta wait for william mainlander so the guys are looking for something. That's not there we'll and then you get sloppy and then you scramble and then all of a sudden you're goalie spring some leaks and i mean it looked jack. Campbell was not gonna stop the puck ninety five percent of the time right otherwise he was the best goalie in nhl history and so now stopping it at a boat idiot and a half percent which is a little low for him. But you've got some issues. And so i would say in the next week or ten days. You'd like to see the lineup. At least stabilize to a certain point and that includes matthews who sat out last game wall. All right when you look at the goaltending ill. There's been so much. Fanfare around jack campbell. Deservedly so many sets a franchise record in wins all dot to use your word leaky Against the winnipeg jets in the first period Play goal goes off his glove. Maybe he was spooked call. Connor shoots in a similar spot. Beats him clean enough concerned that you look david rettig and you go who they may depending on what happens with freddie anderson david rettig all all of a sudden becomes a real big piece. And i'll let you answer that but think about this too. i. I like the story of jack campbell. There's not much not to like but the history of jack accountable and like you. I like being around super positive people. And he is that and then some but in this market in a canadian market in general there can be too much of that right because you amplify the highs but the amplify the lows. You know money against montreal. He comes out and says. I was embarrassed by my effort. Like it's too much of one thing and then lays an egg against the jets in in the first period of thursday's game like i if i'm doing toronto. Pr i'm probably keeping him away from zoom media availabilities for a little bit. Just let things settle down. Okay so couple of things one. I think whether we're concerned about the goaltending or not. The leafs are because they traded a third round. Pick right for essentially a backup goalie right. The uncertainty over anderson's health been very protective of jack campbell's health as well. I think i think it is a concern because there just is uncertainty as for campbell..

"This conversation an incredible. And definitely one that i feel like all to a couple of times over but i think the biggest takeaway that i got from this is that instead of looking for someone. That's emotionally available. Look in yourself and see how it will you are and i think like This exercise you did with three waterfall. But sometimes you think that you've done all this work but there's still more out there and it's also putting the work to practice and having those difficult conversations like it's easier to do this like more theoretically but it's harder to do it in practice with someone and i think there's a big difference between being emotional and emotionally available very big difference. My biggest takeaway is what you're saying. Connor is the disconnect that we all feel everything is in our head and we saved all the time so in my head right now because we don't feel it in our heart we don't feel it in our core and i was reading this this article about our perception of time. And how as you get older time seems to fly by much faster because you have less new experiences so all the all the same experiences you have. It makes a time fly by. Because you're like. I've been there but as a child. You're so connected to your senses that everything you touch. Everything you feel is a new experience. Time goes by really slowly. Because you're really present and i love when kids get hurt. They yell really loud or like it hurts so bad. it really doesn't hurt so bad. But they want you to know that they're having this experience and being so disconnected from our body is something that i really wanna take away is. I want to reconnect myself with even my inner child of just going beyond my head and being logical and thinking about the past experiences how can i create new experiences so i can observe myself in a different way. So thank you for that..
