Why Michael B. Jordan was chosen as People's Sexiest Man Alive
"Sexiest man alive. Two thousand twenty is another michael jordan and just an objectively correct choice for just off the bat. I have to say listen. I both went through stints where we were bills ascent. I currently am which meant that. We brought his guests in whenever he would have celebrity guests on his podcast. And i cannot remember a male guests that made as much of a flurry among the wringer women. When he came onto the lot as michael be there were people. I won't name names but jordan liggins was sitting outside. She was like casually working outside. One day i was like weird. We're choice people were stationed across the lot to see him when he came in. It was a bath. Y'all i can think of two instances where there's gonna be s podcast guests. I like made the rounds pass. Bills office just right. You know why. Advisory michael jordan was one of them. I actually was surprised. I'm shocked he has not been named as in the past. This suggests easy choice. Like it's easy in the best way like he is people sector the people's sexiest man. I cannot believe this hasn't happened yet. I agree i. This is my. I was surprised about this choice because it was just kind of seemed to obvious where he had he should have won it before. And i kinda thought if he hadn't done it before then like he just wasn't quite what they were looking for which is wrong and also i was like what is he done this year because usually when they pick these things. It's someone who has really been in the news who has had some huge project you know it was the rock. It was blake shelton when he was like the voice. You know it was john legend and it's usually like tied to someone who's just been in the news a ton and had a really big year so when it was michael jordan i was like what was he in this year. However twenty twenty three movies so through all that could be during his done with. Tsa in his profile is he's donated to charities. He has been at home as all the responsible celebrities have been doing and like sitting at home donated the charities and being hot. it's just like peak twenty twenty. So i apologize to michael jordan for thinking that it wouldn't be him because that's all you have to do is twenty twenty and that's great happy for him. Each year grows more and more embarrassing than blake. Shelton was named anyway. Okay so let's go to some of the people we thought we're to be named the sexiest man of twenty twenty. So gotta give a quick shot to our producer. Kinda you can jump in if you'd like but i say who thought it was going to be. Which is dr fauci or shawn. Mendez goes on. I just the spectrum of twenty twenty runs from dr fauci tucson mendez. I really thought. I would something dr fauci as you were. Yeah amanda the moment. He had a bigger year totally. I was thinking. Chris cuomo john king obviously big cnn. Gal i thought it was joey king for a second. I was like joey king. That'd be cool. Little switch up kissing booth three. I don't Also thought. Jason derulo oliver tiktok. I thought chance the rapper. Maybe patrick mahomes the athlete not to flex on my sports knowledge. I'm dan love you. Who was in shits creek. Big actress doctor and a lot of these people were in the issue so we actually had a lot of good guesses in terms of who would be included because like we said they have a lot of little sexy participation trophies to hand out My predictions for the cover. As you know. I'm just to online and sometimes i think that the people who are talked about online are the people that the rest of the world is also obsessed with. What's actually michael jordan's a peak internet boyfriend. So actually i do. I think i was on the right track. I thought it would be a chris evans and pine both had a shot. Because they obviously chris evans very politically active This year and then chris pine has wonder woman coming out and christmas. So i thought maybe he had a shot. Kiat was a long shot just because he would never agree to this. I don't think i think he's overdue. He won a long long time ago. Let's bring back. He was also included in the sexiest happily settled guy which was category so he did get a he got he got something in there and then i said robert pattinson who i don't know if you would be into this like seeing repents and twenty twenty people shoot just seems like a weird fit but maybe next year when he's batman. I thought i was like you know. Let's just give it to brad pitt. Again twenty twenty. It's kind of a throwaway year or so like just give it to him again. like church. sure he hasn't had it in like what. Ten years repeats list over time over the decades. Sure exactly. he's still

Nature: Disconnect to Reconnect
"We are your host. This is how we came here. My name is real Vin and this is a podcast about Brown men talking about issues that matter to you. We talk about things that we don't usually talk about in home and communities were just three regular Compass sharing our experiences to inspire positive change. Compa pull up a seat. We have one ready for you. Welcome back to Los compas Lowndes and we have yet another topic. It's almost it's interesting. The the last the last topic was brown men in the ITP and you know, sometimes you got you got to just get away from that screen, you know, and you gotta get away from just everything that's going on, you know going on in the neighborhood man, and and I know off for for the school psaki, you know, one big one way that we do it is by just going out into nature man. It's a way to disconnect and Thursday at least for me to recharge and reconnect, you know, so but one thing that I always see, you know that I that I always observe is that I'm usually the only Chicano out them, you know, usually the only brown man out out there in nature, you know, whether whether it's going to ston a you know, a little four hour hike or going camping, you know, yep. Going for the Deep ones like, you know going, you know going into the national parks and everything. It seems like I'm usually the only brown person there or you know, the the small brown community that I go with, you know home and that's always hurt me, you know, and I don't know if about you guys if you noticed that or you know, if you even you know, if you know, but that's a good what do you guys think about? Yeah, that's a good way to look at this stuff. It's like very interesting kind of twist our topic on the outdoors experience for for all people, right? And then sometimes you don't think about it. But but yeah, that's something we can dig into in terms of like why are there so few of us, you know, maybe maybe there's a secret place that we're not aware of and we're not invited but but you know, I certainly like to think that the outdoors experience is open to all people regardless of your shade of Cutler, but that's that's certainly something that I've experienced and I've looked at as well and it's funny how you said, you know, we lost one passes all about connecting. But sometimes we need to disconnect to connect right, you know connecting in a different format. So I think that's really awesome. So for me for sure getting out there, it's beautiful. I think blogging I haven't done it in a while and especially during this pandemic, you know, there's no way we're getting out there with the kids. But you know, I think about hiking or I think about the outdoors as just an odd been space and opportunity to reconnect with nature, right or reconnect with Earth. What what is out there for us and what can we take advantage as individuals and as fathers and husbands and family men to get out there with our kids and expose them to all the beauty that nature has to offer. So when I think about that I think about it long terms of an opportunity to get out and opportunity to disconnect an opportunity to expose my children to something very beautiful, you know, whether it's the mountains the beaches or off. Or any other outdoor activity when I really like when I go up there is there's no even if you want to use your phone sometimes I mean, you can't change it. So nobody's going to interrupt you, you know, like there's this this place. I like to go camping and it's like it's in a canyon, you know, so you're surrounded by mountains and there's no way that you could call anybody. You know, you're just you're just strep right there. But I mean actually right now as I'm saying that I was able to hack the system one time when how long in there because my car has OnStar, you know, and I started that satellite and then I remember when time just just to see if I could do it, you know, I was actually able to make a call from from my OnStar in my truck, you know, but other than that when I take like my kids and then all of a sudden they're they're phone stopped stopped working wage. You know that my phone. Yep, that's how it is. You know, I mean, it's like well we'll go deep into the I like going like deep into where where it's like deep in the mountains, you know, cuz I was going to say that like I've noticed right now. Okay. I'm thinking of this one place in particular in Azusa where there's a like a creek and I do notice that there's a lot of a lot of us are a lot of Latinos right there, you know along the creek in the other example, you know, like they go right there and and you know, take their food and right there, you know, and that's a big choice because we were kids. I remember my uncle used to take us to the radio was called to say that I remember to somebody real little too will take your Hibachi Little Grill and then and it's funny really, we would my my father and my uncles and they will get the six packs back. You know, they had the six packs of a Bud Light or Budweiser and it put them inside there. He'll cuz a while so cold. Yeah, that was dead. Journeymen and you know it was cool. It would be in the Real by you know, taking nice little cold dip in there and then the the senioritis and the seals and the father's would be like cracking the sword the beers and I thought yeah, there's cool. You know, it's family you brings you bait. They they they they took an opportunity to expose us as little kids to you know, something like that are six packs on put on a river.

Godley says, as is the case with wildfires When it comes to earthquake preparedness, residents need to do at least three basic things. That a kid we've talked about, Go banks, but you may need something a little bit bigger, withstand a long term impact event like earthquake. This was make a plan for yourself. In your family and then stay informed. Retrofitting. Your home also is important, as is securing any top heavy furniture and taking down any large mirror or glass frame that might be over a bed.

Given the chance it only took fourteen years. To prove old Zebulon Pike. Wrong. The mountain was first scaled by a European in eighteen twenty when Edwin James, a botanist and explorer successfully reached the summit collecting flowers all the way up quote the most notable day of the expedition for botanical collecting. Now, I don't WanNa give all the credit to Edwin. James although it sounds like he had a great time, I'm sure that one of the Taboada probably. Did it before him yeah. One hundred percent. Yeah attaboy watch like a a wildfire up their boot who was just like I'm GonNa Climb that today flowers. We're lovely but it was a Shinier commodity that attracted the first wave of settlers to pikes. Peak Pike's peak or bust was a common slogan of the Colorado Gold Rush of the eighteen fifties although is more of a marketing slogan. Do the prominence of the mountain gold wasn't discovered near pikes peak until later in eighteen ninety three, it won't be the first time that the mountain inspired the imaginations of those who climbed it in that same year after reaching a summit of the mountain and taking in the view Katharine Lee Bates wrote the Song America the beautiful. Describing Purple Mountain Majesties above the enameled plane over the years the mountain was commonly referred to as Pike's highest peak before finally being simplified just to pikes peak the next notable American to shape the fate of the mountain was Spencer Penrose, and he also might have been the one to introduce cars. Penrose had a name that sound like the bad guy in a murder mystery but he also had a job that would fit right into the genre. He was a mining speculator of the American West just like a murder mystery penrose had a history that could make you think you is both a suspect and a savior he graduated from Harvard but at the bottom of his class. His father and brothers were doctors and lawyers he decided to travel out west and try to make a name for himself at first he failed before getting a tip about some land near Cripple Creek that made him millions of dollars, and that's million dollars like in the movie this guy is played by Walton Geoghegan's. For sure. That's love that whilst. Yeah. And that's millions of dollars in eighteen hundreds money, which is like a lot today billions today. I Love Walton Gardens he's so. I feel like if I went to Harvard I'd WanNa, graduate the bottom of my class. Look I'm I'm the best on the rowing team but. Not great at socio economics I mean I went to. Harvard. So I'm pretty good at stuff but like I partied penrose settled. Colorado. Springs. The closest town to pikes peak was met a woman named Julie Villiers McMillan although. Penrose was by then in his forty s, he had sworn to stay a rich entrepreneurial bachelor but Macmillan proved to be grimes to his Elon Musk and the two got hitched in traveled to Europe for a lavish honeymoon staying at beautiful resorts around Europe inspired penrose to murder his wife what now? In fact, the inspiration was to open his own motel modeled after the places he had stayed specifically on the Mediterranean coast. This became the Broadmoor hotel opened in nineteen eighteen at the cost of three million, nineteen eighteen dollars translating to scrooge mcduck. Gold Coin Swing Pool amount of money in today's money. The Broadmoor was and is a seven hundred, seventy nine room Italian renaissance style palace with eighteen restaurants a golf club with three courses including one designed by Arnold. Palmer himself an automotive museum, the contents of which will soon arrive at this thing is like massive. It looks awesome. Yeah. I WanNa go to the odd more. Yeah. Let's do it. How do you feel? Seven hundred rooms every night. That's nuts penrose was no fool. He knew he knew that to attract people to the hotel you needed to do things great reviews on tripadvisor, dot com and promotional stunts. He set out to work on an ambitious project as he built the hotel, it was a two hundred, eighty, three, thousand, dollar gravel and dirt road to the fourteen thousand, one, hundred, fifteen foot summit of pikes peak with the idea of promoting tourism to the area and indirectly his own hotel.

"What would be your message to. Let's talk partially about policy but also about personal Behavior. What do we need to see? Cuz ironically on one hand when we have over used it encourages problem Behavior. Yeah, but on the other side of that argument the only way in my estimation to get people to take Wilderness, seriously, as far as ethics is concerned is to involve the minute. They have to have a personal stake and they have to understand that they have to feel it if we don't get them out there or do we expect them to take care of it? Exactly. What's your message to listeners about keeping the Wilderness there for four generations ahead. Well, my harsh answer is pick up your day of trash. That's a good answer. But yeah back out your stuff. It's well it it's so simple of a way to manage and be responsible for the area and even if it means that you bring a Daypack with you so that yep. Put your trash in it. Yeah, like it's only uses don't don't leave her Mountain Dew bottle out there on the trail. Like what's the point? Yeah, it's easier said than done sometimes because when we're looking at more people using public areas and these wonderful natural resources that we have there's going to be people who are familiar with leave. No Trace principles in the ethics of being outside. And so even if it means having more trash cans at trailheads off or providing make it easier for people to do the right thing exactly providing like a morgue sacks for sign in dog poop. Right right more signage make it colorful and things like that. That'll make it attractive cuz it's not attractive to carry trash around on a trail that you've been hiking all day our recent trip to the Smoky Mountains. There was a dead A plaque up at a place that we stopped at the said like Bob was here and it was the story about someone who wrote their name and side of the building and they got like in trouble for it. So I was this plaque that's like historical marker about this guy named Bob getting in trouble for writing his name on this historic building and that not that I'm one to change my name and stuff but it caught my attention it like I read it. I spent time with it and realized. Oh, this is a great and creative way to manage this issue. Yeah, so people respect the land and the well, it's A Hard Sell to to sell to somebody that part of your personal enjoyment is your protection of somebody else's enjoyment down the road. Yeah. Well, that's that's an issue right now in our country, but will you guys have a podcast that I want people to find? It's called thinking outside and you're getting ready to fire a backup. Yep. Thirteen episodes in you also have Instagram accounts that are both kind of fun and exciting to see your journey but also opportunities to to see the challenge is Andrew. Yours is Drew climbs walls Instagram. Yep. And Sarah. Do you have one or you guys kind of going off of true, as well? I don't post on it as much but I do have one. It's called the strong cigarette with this is Sarah with an H. Okay, so people can find a podcast thinking outside and the Instagram handles through climbs walls and strong Sarah with an H.

"They are you might be getting people going off and expired. Yeah. It's a weird Brown. Yeah. Yeah, but it sounds in a way it's kind of good to start getting the idiotic helpful tips because it's kind of separate from that almost makes a you know, that you've been successful in changing the narrative because those are the tips are happening no matter who's in the picture. Yeah. Yeah in in terms of within our local community too long. When we know people through climbing, we know them through climbing and when recently with kovacic it down there was a like a little bit of Disconnect and we're still kind of I don't know if we want to say recovering but we're either adjusting or managing that disconnect that happened during this six months that we weren't C people regularly. Yeah. And so that's that's been a little difficult to deal with on a personal side. Cuz these are people that we used to see at least once or twice a week only went months without seeing so it's rekindling that and good I'm getting connected again and we're in a much different social atmosphere now and so those things have we've seen them come up and we're like, oh this is not the person that I thought this was or they might be saying the same thing about us. And so there's been some wedges there that we're trying to navigate lately a lot of my home. Videos online though like a lot of the climbers I talked to is online. That's great. And there's a big distinction between people who climb primarily in a gym which is great off and then people who primarily primarily climb outdoors and do you find that people that primarily climb in a gym and more oriented to like working out versus kind of the Wilderness ethic? Oh, yeah. Yeah strength building or pushing grade. So pushing the level that they're able to climb. Whereas I think of my experience where I was working on that and I was working on climbing harder and the thing with gyms is that people who set the routes change and so then setting Styles change and grades change and it was like a constant rabbit used to figure out what am I really climbing in terms of quantifying the the difficulty? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, and eventually I was like, you know what I'll be there to believe you and I'll climb he's he's dead. And that's that's me and my journey now I go outdoors and I tell someone that yeah, I just climbed this route. I led my first round Outdoors. It was the simplest route in this area and their life. That is so cool. That's awesome. I'm psyched for you and there's a lot of camaraderie and Just support buildings, you know, it's just for doing the thing you get a lot of support. Yeah. Just making the effort. Yeah, I think you guys started this year. Correct me if I'm wrong it was this year. But you decided to do is 52 height challenged was that 2020? Yeah. Yeah, that's during the week before covid-19 and understanding that was beyond your control. Yeah, where are you in that process took 14 or 15? Yeah. We're in the teens and then it got hot after shut down into it. So we we were like totally going after it and then like April like yeah, like the park shut down. Yeah very much. We even tried to go to some local parks in Columbia just south of us and we went down one and it was like closed more like there's nothing on any website that this place is closed yet..

"And in addition to that. I've been learning more about health at every size. So is the idea of body neutrality. I want to be the best me in the body. I have versus a need to change it or how would you define that so it's body positivity. It's loving your body as it is and off. The people that I follow there's a lot of like gratitude for who they are and what they look like in the moment with neutrality. It's say it is what it is and I'm not going to be upset about it. But I also don't have to love everything about it. And that's okay too so I can still make the improvements. I want to make without trading in my love of who I am. So you guys have a a very successful podcast called thinking outside and Drew you have an Instagram a Drew climbs walls. Yep, It sounds like one of the things you're using both of these social media outlets for is to pitch the idea that everybody gets to access the outdoors and to be like hike calm go. Do you know get out there and do it, but I think you guys are on your thirteenth episode. What are some of the goals of your podcast cuz I know you've done off A lot of different, you know subject matter and had some different guests. Do you have an overall goal for thinking outside for people to gather from it? I like to see I like to show the fun parts of camping and this stuff. That's my favorite part of it is US kind of joking around and me like remember this experience or like I'm making memories. Yeah. I show in our experience of being a couple that does this together and we realized too that we have a story to share. And pretty multi-layered really? Yeah, I want you to find the story all that's a deep. Well, I mean you have different aspects right? You have a young married couple you have a black couple who saw themselves as never being able to access this and then they said well hell no, that's not right. We're going to do it, you know, and then you have this really awful kind of social media ambassadors for And open climbing and open Wilderness world for anybody. Yeah, pretty multi-layered to your yeah. And so it's another vehicle for us to meet.

"Looking at a will we're just going to slap this size on it. You're sizing for men is oh this 2x range is going between this many inches in this many inches or women. There's no standard. And is that that's true of of not just Wilderness attire, but the tire in general and Cassie I can wear a size twenty Jean from Old Navy but they suck their clothing up to make you feel better or down. I mean so so if you're thinking oh, I'm the size and this company because I feel good and not go try on another size twenty Jean in another company. It's going to be a completely different may not even fit so your message if an REI or or or a Lands End or a Bass Pro or any of these outdoor retailers are listening or certainly, you know, Marmot or Patagonia or Columbia, whatever the the manufacturer your message them as hey, you've got a customer base here don't assume that because we may look like we're out of shape that we're not interested in the dog. That is correct. Yeah, that's it. That's that's pretty much in my message and and let us know that you're making our products wage or put us put us in the advertisements Prana Megs Plus Sizes. I didn't know until I was looking I was like they're not going to have my size lo and behold they have a plus section. But all our advertisements is a bunch of like bath models yoga women when you think that's one of the challenges is to break that stereotype of if we look at a Wilderness wage advertisement. It's young people on a perfect day sitting around a beautiful fire wearing the plaids and the you know, and then by, looks beautiful. Yeah, so I'm not even what we know I think if we think about Wilderness and environmentalism and how liberal and open-minded and Progressive we tend to think they are one of the things that you're finding is with wage. Gear and sales, we're not as Progressive as we think. Yeah, a lot of outdoor companies have been making so much progress in terms of diversifying what they're advertising off. We're seeing people of different sexualities people of different races being promoted in their advertising. They're still stay in a term of office products sizing straight sized, right? They can go into any store and find a sizing that's going to work for them. So in the wilderness, the minority is.

"Thankfully we have a dear friend that works at our REI here and so he worked with us to find okay this hip straps not working. Let's try a different size. The shoulder straps not working and let's try smaller size is whatever. Yeah, we need it. So what is your message to both retailers in terms of availability and buying product but maybe even especially manufacturers. What is your message to them about providing activewear for both the curves of women and two women and men being bigger than the than the standard advertisement model. What's your message of them in terms of what you need? I think of Field of Dreams build-it-and-they-will-come. Like we're we're here we're wanting to buy these products. Yeah, I'm searching constantly. We had a brand rep reached out to us and I was looking on their side and like I might be able to fit into this. I don't know. We'll see if they offered other sizes people would buy it regardless of the money. I think of Lululemon off a charge God awful amount of money way out of my budget for some leggings and people will buy it and people are buying it now that they've extended their services. Yeah, so I make the big argument of like if I'm if when I started climbing I had the Google can big people climb, you know, that was literally your search. Yeah inquiry. Yeah, that shouldn't be a question, but I should be able to let them throw myself out there so much cuz I want people to see how to model model what I can do. Maybe you can do it, too. and that's kind of what my force of change is is like I want I wanted to be seen I wanted to be like in advertisements and in magazines and stuff like in our climbing culture. I would love to see a big or like a big warm whatever whatever this person. Yeah enjoying it. Yeah, just been like if I were to saw that like maybe two years ago thirty years ago, whatever I would maybe have been in the sport earlier, you know, so we talk a minute about the part of the problem with not making active wear for women irrespective of size. Just the shape of women and how that there's a Palm City of gear aimed at women. What do you find in terms of gear for men that are bigger guys. Are you finding it easier to get gear that works for you? There's one harness. I can buy Thursday like it's in my budget and I know will fit me, but after they kind of got get custom sizes, but I don't but men bodies are kind of all the same like a month or two x shirts going to fit me..

"So it sounds like in a way it's off if it has brought about You know fractures our struggles within a relationship is the very least in the vehicle to move you through those. Yeah, and it's acceptance to walk again. You're up there on the rock you we gotta know that the other person has us and having faith in one another is is pretty important. Yeah, and the technical side effects of using some climbing jargon again of cleaning and anchor. So once you've gone up you're using your own gear to hold your anchor well when you get in the outdoors, you want to keep your gear he's invested money that you want to take it or leave it on the rock. Yeah, exactly. And so getting what you have off in a safe way of the process of cleaning it up is something that I really enjoy doing. And that's something that Drew gets a little overwhelmed with in those situations. So it works out pretty well way. I just think different thoughts. I have troubles with like how would you say it's are like, I don't want to say that you struggle with like knots and stuff because you figure them out. Yeah, but it's off my brain gets overwhelmed the detail of yeah. Yeah the multiple steps and I have to go in this order. Yeah, Drew tends to find a way around things. It always gets done. So you guys are pretty young team though. Yeah, we found what works best for us. And we're we're strong. It seems like the Wilderness can do one of two things who can separate people and break people up because it does take an understanding that everybody's different in their approach or it can kind of bring you together because you make this perfect team. Yeah learning process. I think right place. It's great to have a teammate and all this, you know, and we see a lot of Partnerships and climbing of different people and they're always friends. We don't see like there's some couples out.

"Ron de la Vega on cello.
"creek" Discussed on Conversations On Cub Creek
"So, do you remember that that I'd take what can you tell us about that for before It's it's a group is a kind of unusual grouping of instruments. We have a classical guitar. Cello and drums set. which is Now, arbiters now saying less the most common bandon in Nashville but. It really is not as a very unusual combination. Yeah. what what I like about that band's guitar player is he has his masters in classical guitar, but he started off at Berkeley and did a lot of jazz and came steep from rock and roll early on. So he's got a a very broad picture of music. He's able to put a lot of things together and stylistically stay true to them. The drummer. I've played a gigs with him before I've done Jazz gigs with him before he is he's he's very studied was with how he plays drums. He's very disciplined in fact he has. His doctorate. In composition, he's also composer. This is a smart band. It's. You would think that I'm in it. Might change things. And I'm bringing the cello ended up that I'm doing melodic, and then I have to go to the base poor and that's what's kind of interesting renewal combination because it guitarist and I when I go to the melody, he's got to cover the the the base line as much as he can. So we we have to, we have to craft the music. So it it can flow from each person each person everybody in this band has to to. They've got a job they have to perform if one person doesn't make it. It falls far as part it falls apart. That's. Kind of fun to be in though because it's you don't feel. Even if you're not doing the Solo, you're not a backup player because of one person's off. Whole thing crashes. On all three of us is to fool shrill. All right. So Ron, you've got cello with Ya which is great We're going to hear another song by George and Ira Gershwin I think Howard Dietz was in on this song as well and correct me if I'm wrong. But I, believe it was first song in the musical. Okay. And not. Okay. But okay as in Katherine by Gertrude, Lawrence but who really made the song famous I don't really know that because I don't know Gertrude Lawrence. But I, know there are a lot of people that sung the song who are some of them that were the most famous you think. Sarah of organsied serve on. Ladders Gladys to this. That's probably A more famous yeah. Well. We've got Enrico Bony on piano and.

In Rica was taken under wing by the famous American jazz pianist, Hampton Hawes, becoming fast friends and sharing many musical experiences again. He's opened for miles. Davis and was probably the last piano player to play with the legendary basis Jaakko stories. Ron De la Vega born to a Cuban father and an American mother from Alabama has played cello and bass and bands and orchestras like Dave Brubeck then he goodman and Mannheim steamroller, he's played live and recorded with tons of artists from Los Angeles to Nashville including the crickets, Jerry Lee Lewis Albert, Lee Eddie, Van Halen Waylon, Jennings Jerry Reed, Brenda Lee, and Nancy Griffith's blue. Moon Orchestra. I'M GONNA stop right there because if I read his complete list, we'd run out of time to talk. I promise you that I did my best to make this episode, a single our, but I failed miserably. So once again, I have separated this episode into our parts. I had to master musicians hanging out talking about their extraordinary lives and jamming again. I didn't want the night to end and you won't either. So. Let's get the conversation started. Oh man that is sweet. Well welcome. My friends Ron de la Vega and in riquet Bony it is not easy these days in particular to get virtuosic musicians in one room hard to do that in general. But in these days of quarantine, it's even harder but we have pulled it off cannot wait talk about your y and Cuba and all that's influenced you both Ron, you got the upright base and Enrica you're already behind the key. So We start this off with a song. This first song was written by George and IRA. Gershwin I think in Nineteen Twenty eight and I sung think correct me if I'm wrong in nineteen thirty Broadway.

One of the reasons I'm doing that is that I want the next generation of kids to be able to Google subject and see kids that look like that powerful. Those changes have to happen I mean, yeah. Yeah, and and and having that conversation would your kids any young kid? I think the biggest thing is Not to be the TALKER and and and really be the listening to the kid and because you know they may be experiencing totally different like so just be open on his dialect but also had a compassionate note that I it I got two years for reason. So right now I'm gonNA be active listener. I'M GONNA listen to this kid and see what struggles. They have what questions they have not dictate the conversation. Let them know ahead of time you know like everybody's equal and going to. Your experiences of Kinda preach that. Mantra. From Day One and then. Come back I guess in just like what experiences have. kind of stuff and just kind of. Play it out from there and just having a conversation at dinner or having dinner with another race inviting black people over just the conversation as well. I think the biggest disturbing thing is when you do have that conversation and that you have it so often, but black people aren't involved in it. Are you gonNA talk about my race without having me around? You know just like an invite the kids over like you were saying earlier with you're having dinner with your teammates. Doing, things of that nature outreach in I mean intermingling in having a conversation you you can't just have that the black conversation without black being involved. Tough Founder and CEO of the color of music a very cool five. Oh, one, C. Three and. Your mantras teaching youth value of life through the arts. So this is a good question for you. How do we imbue young people? With. An active understanding of the racial divide and what to do about it. Well, yes. it was a program started warner brothers records years ago at Warner Brothers records was the only record accompanying. On these zero in Nashville period who would honor black history week. Nicola Music was the last program we had there at the. At the label and it was to. Bring, people. Together black and white especially on the umbrella music you know that's basically the the field that I work in and I worked with the Country Music Foundation as well black and white key it to teach them music or songwriting and and stuff like that and music is a powerful force. It brings people together. A lot of conversations that we're having a proper would not be having except for the the slaves dancing in the field and thing, and it really impressed for slave master and he wanted to be off of that. And and so therefore, through music, we are able to communicate and everybody has pretty much come together in. That arena wasn't empowering use write music is and so teaching kids the. History of the Civil Rights, movement and teaching kids about about the effects now and doing it using music as a vehicle. For. Right. And I think like your. What's your name? Again he had said earlier about pity What we need to do have you asked the question. Where we feel community. As a people and that's the one thing education educating our kids because like I say a lot of young black here today they may have been faced with it every day but they didn't know what because they didn't know anything about this subject. They didn't know anything about racing my grandkids like what really and now and now that they found out that this is really this has happened in. The US today? You know they kind of life a little different than the different a little bit more aware third. A lot of young kids will never had experience or had to face racism. Yes, you have. Just one overt, right. Right. In moving towards A. Up I've got a few questions and one is what makes especially with the conversation pad tonight. A conversation about race in the racial divide work or not work right because we all I'm sure have been in a conversation or two about this subject matter and sometimes you walk away going man that was great and other times you walk away going I don't know about a world. What is isn't about a conversation about race that makes it work when both parties are listening when I say on both parties listening like 'cause I've had friends come out and say, what do you think about the protests in some nick session I have my rebuttal and then they just like well, I just don't agree with it and I'm like well, I can't talk to you you. Incompetent you. I don't agree with it. They should do something different. You know what a protest is the voice of unheard. It's the I'm tired of being battered. I'm tired of my raises just being disenfranchised marginalized to that degree. So a protest this is supposed to make you feel uncomfortable wiles would they do? When they walk over the cell over the Edmund, a pet is. You know they. They knew there was gonna be uncomfortable. They knew that something on the side of that, which is gonNA be impactful in. Conversations that are uncomfortable. Should be afraid of afraid of. Just because you don't agree with what's going on. Well, there's a difference between right listening and waiting to talk. Listen and and then then that then go from there this listen just listen because sometimes when you listen the answer or rebuttal that you were getting ready to give. Changes. But.

"I'm not saying look down on me and like, oh I'm sorry and just acknowledging there's no that yes everything's equal where everything we can all have the same opportunities to an extent but some people are just born or having advantage and a head start. In life and this is a real thing. I'm not making an excuse me. Yes I can do achieve everything into my wheel however, the hurdles I may have in my lane. You may not have in your lane if I'm starting from hurdles hurdles behind you you already five hurdles ahead. Yes. I can catch up however you can't sit there and say that. But. It's still equal. We can all just you know all get to finish line same time. Your point is that is not that inequality of access is not just of the air of civil rights you're experiencing that has a twenty seven year old young men now. that. Kind of two sides to think it's a memo social media where is it's a race and it's gotta finish line and it's got the white. The white man that's just on a paved lot and then it's got a black person on got bushes and stick bushes and cactuses and Hampson bumps. Go to is the same distance, but you know they got these other obstacles that they have to go through. That's more true than I've never ever seen before in my life, and again, we're not discrediting like a sign of you know that why people don't face obstacles, right? Yeah, we get that. We get that how complexion does not set you back further than sets me back in the eyes of others. So when unperceived out in public, you're not perceived the same when you can't sit there and say that you are because you're not definitely can assemble it to that at all, and that's that's the biggest thing with me and my is is that yes, we have a fair chance at life I get that but however you in my opinion may have hit star. Which is fine. Let me ask the difficult question we know that there are institutional obstacles and cultural obstacles in this country that are well rooted. against African Americans. I got a lot of questions from whites. and. One of the questions was my own question. About the role of. Black people in society and Black Accountability I got ton of those questions Some were worded pretty well, others are not let me ask it this way. What Role Do you think black folks play in healing the racial divide and where have they failed? We're has black culture failed to heal it. I, feel like I roll is huge. I mean huge because I I said on time. I'm not GonNa wait on someone else to raise the self worth my little brown and black kids like. Is Our job to do that like I'm not GonNa look for someone else to teacher Ed School are the coach or whoever like in in our community responsible for that like you know and so my job is I'm not gonNA wait on anyone to raise the set worst and as black people black men especially when I'm speaking from that. Is Not just good enough. No more. Just I raise I, own keys like we got to reach out to the kids don't have fathers who mom's not we gotta we gotTa really. Like when I was coming up you know we had that unity in the black neighborhoods where Anybody's Mama was everybody over there about a month and we gotta get back to that as black people we gotta realize like I'm not waiting on someone the government I'm not wait on them anymore like if I see the need my little black and brown kids need whether it's hanging out throwing the football going grass ice cream is my job do I can't wait on no one else soda when I talk about accountability, start their own neighborhood because I'm not waiting on. Someone as again. Let's say, Hey, we realize the problem in this country. Let us come put some money your bills and playground do no. I'm not waiting in the more like you know we gotta we gotta start. They're like really like just really feeding. You know again, let our kids know that you are special that you are valuable. You're worthy your love you intelligent because they're not getting on social they're not getting it on the TV and I always say is basketball players. rappers you know. So it's on us the next. What do you think about the role of of where does black accountability and that's large word of course. I like. Jira examples here up President Obama won by overwhelming amount of black and white. and His campaign slogan was yes, we can. When he got into office especially a lot of. maxine. Why Especially Black Winston Way and say, okay, we've got black and all of this. Okay to take either and we went from Rancho down. So we will. Work you didn't say yes I, can. Now mouth field that he failed him. Actually we feel ourselves. We should have stayed in Bob. You can't both own author bengals the to dance. In, ultimately, is that the the biggest failure of any group is the whether you decide to haul yourself out to vote or not. Invest a pretty big failure with most people. Yes. Because we have a lot of blacks especially black men say well, I'm. Not. GonNa. Vote is not a matter anyway to call the Electoral College. What people don't understand it. Forget the Electoral College forget the. Version of the president vote in your local elections. That's where you're goals count. And that takes care of the presidency right. Exactly, so you're talking about. Education. Education very important and then there's certain I'm not a spear there to dislike from the blacks form their town I can pick what angles it was. And winning destroyed that Rosewood with. Was Over So, there's a lot of fear we're as well. Well, that goes back when the whole. Conversation we had very early on of one of those drives. prejudices they're going to get mine and it year to year there is different in the minds. They'RE GONNA get mine drives a lot of that right? You're one of the things I've heard from a lot of folks. That wanted to weigh in with questions. Especially, white people was the sense of. I don't know how to talk. To black people. Because my fear is I'm GonNa be nails a racist and one of the particular question I got was. How can I bring up the subject of? All of us being accountable and the subject of black count newly without being tagged as a racist. Do you think that we throw the word racist around? Too easily too quickly or no I? Don't think. So okay I'm like you'd be real with me just hanging. Over how just be really me you friend of mine I don't have a problem with you express how you feel whatever just be real with me. Now, I have a problem when you sugarcoat stuff in beaten around like what you actually want to talk about or something like that. I got problem with that. But if you real with me, 'cause you just don't know. I I don't have any problem with that. I'm all for that. So just like a being nervous to talk about it because I don't know your experience a talk to me Let me know you know. Feel. As me. Anybody else. Here. I honestly I do. Everyday. Life I want I want to feel constructive criticism. Don't pay my back. The truth. But I I don't know a lot of.

"On our topic hand. You can also check out the show notes on our podcast facebook page. Let's get started. We're going to pick up right where we left off talking about police brutality. It cause imbalance YEP. I don't know whether recruitment alone solves the problem and into Tracy's point I don't know whether training alone solves the problem. Unless the culture change. Yeah and I would back up even further on March an let's talk about accountability. Why is it that we're held? So Lote I mean it's just it's just. That you aren't accountable for any of the actions most of these most cops are probably executed at all. They're not serving any brian the most of them are paid leave. If I was a doctor committed malpractice guess what happens I lose my license. Why is it that these guys can commit something and still find a job later on right but we're still being fed this notion of that. But they've they lose their job there they won't work anywhere else. So this I don't think I on training is essential. No doubt. But the fact that they need to be held accountable is the other thing you know they know how to arrest a Dylann roof who went in a church and math folks. There wasn't bothering him so they arrest you. Didn't have a scratch on here, but then you're gonNA. Go Get jove here and. He had broken tail light and you don't. He Ain't got no act because you don't beat him up with the buddy, your gun and put an e. on his nick and just because he didn't have a or he ran from, you stopping him for a broken tail light but Dylann roof killed nine folks. In his arrest and processing experience was totally his house, his face was clear. Winner got a Sandwich I. I hope that you keep hearing that. He got a sandwich. Sandwich to feed him. You killed man people in a church who was praying for you and you got another I have a memo on my social media. Were it had it had a picture of six people the top three was white dudes debt killed him in a movie theater yet dylann roof on London groups and they looked out good. You know didn't have no blemishes on face in the bottom three people wanna had broken tail light ran from police. A missing child support payment or something, and they look like they had been put in shredder. Faces. Brutally beaten and all these things in for these instances in they know how to police they know how to arrest folks. Was your point about trading. Much. Let. Me Ask you this can ask you this because you. African, American end up police role. At some time, you know corrections officer then certainly as a as a parole officer to some degree, what was your experience with other black lease officers, corrections, officers did you ever run into the macho or how however we want to talk about that negative culture about police doesn't affect black officers to talking about black officers being as brutal half is brutal not not nearly as brutal, not nearly as brutal but you had a few of them. That was Macho cops or much of a correctional officers and not sure where you got the same problem. Macho tool at all the blacks but they don't do it to white. Restaurant. Also yeah. Even a black off that was my question is a black officer. Any more likely to. Treat. A black suspect versus whites suspect differently sometimes when sometimes that happens but not I don't think not as brutal as a white cop on by. A person or criminal whatever. But I've I've worked with a pretty stern of black correction officers and That was mean to you know other black inmates or whatever, and I have plenty of them and I had a female correction officer there she was brutal. And mostly to black males and I used to ask her like, Hey, what you doing you know we got get out of here. We gotta go home tonight you know. And but I'm attributing that to maybe she had bad relationship with a black guy and took it out the ones then this institutionalized whatever you know. So I don't know what where that came from but. And also had a few black guys that was Kinda mean or a bullying type of correction officers to other black inmates and I'm thinking could they have been bullied when they were younger and now they they in some type of row where I can be like you know I? I can be you know big big dog meal. You know since I got the badge and all this kind of of stuff but. It happens you know you found one too but. You know weaned killing each other like that. And let me just say real quick for you for your next question and I say. Why not jokingly but I heard it on the radio and it's true. It said the guy say preseason the police only wanted to have more misconduct is still keep your job like you know these guys who finally got caught on camera for killing someone this one I fence. These guys had a long record of misconduct. That's what was done. Nothing nothing can look. Culture yes. Yes. Policy Yes yes. Well moving away from that moment, let's get to kind of the general racial divide that we have in this country because that fuels pretty much. Any category were talking about whether we're talking about black lives matter or we're talking about police brutality or talk about those moments of racism that you bump into with Thornton's walking out the door or in the greenway on the hike, it's it's a significant racial divide. Arguably the probably in some circles no better than it's ever been what is something you would like specially whites to know and understand about this divide and what do you think some of the obstacles are into for US getting Can you be cannot be black and get it in by get it you get an opportunity under understand it from a more intimate state I mean. I mean, how do we how? Would you? What would you say you would like? Whites to know that maybe they. Don't know you don't think they know how do we? How do we black people and criminals? Okay. all black people aren't products of a day with fifteen kids. Bath fourteen different women are stuff like that. Stereotype art. Yeah And for me, I. Don't want anything from you like I won't retribution. Apologize Right S Ursus Blah Blah Blah I I on my s do the way I live my life today and so I don't need white folks say hey, I am sorry I don't need you apology. I only to give me anything I, need you give him my land I'd sent you treat me and recognize my family and my kids as equals note I love my kids and you love your superior. And No. Go ahead I want him to know that we know that they commit crimes and do back the identical same thing we do. Yes. There's why. They don't they don't report it like do. On Black. Right. Just know that there is just disproportion that you know he's not A. Same in life especially in black or white certainly, you just have a head start. You just do now granted. Okay. Do you have your head start?.
