S6 E8 - Life: TBD

"This is the we served now. What podcast and if you're anything like me you've had a ton of questions. After leaving the military in the lack of answers has left you frustrated in probably more than a little confused. This show is here to help you make sense of what can sometimes be craziness that is your life after the military. See you can turn your post military life into your best life. Now when i was working on this show. I thought you know. I don't even know what this next. Show season six episode. Eight is going to be about so in the show. Topic is making my notes. I just put to be determined. Dvd to be determined. And i thought you know what that is a perfect title or or maybe more appropriately. I think it's a good topic especially right now as it feels like we are nearing the end of this year. Long over a year now global pandemic that is covid nineteen and the truth is it's it feels like our lives have been in a to be determined status for that entire time right so you can't go anywhere you can't really get out of the house much. Could there's not a lot to do now if you like the outdoors. Maybe this was the perfect time for you to do that. but you wanna go shopping. You want to go out to dinner somewhere. We'll sorry you can't because everything is closed so our lives of felt like we're in a to be determined status but you know pandemic aside. Maybe you're wondering some more practical things you know. Maybe you're wondering if you ever be happy or if you ever get married or if you'll ever have kids or maybe you're wondering if the tonight is in your ears. Whatever shut up. I know i wonder sometimes. Or if you're ptsd symptoms will ever subside. I'm willing to bet that you felt an and maybe you're feeling right now that your life is on hold it. It's all in this kind of this murky to be determined status so my question to you is this. How will you know when your life is no longer on. Hold in this episode. I'm gonna share six elements of forward progress with you and buckle up. Because they're not easy. But i can assure you they are worth it. So by way of introduction mining aaron perkins. I'm a us army combat veteran also hosted. This podcast. I've been focusing on the veteran community. You basically ever. Since i got out you know i should be more honest with that right for a very long time after i got out on myself and focused on figuring out what my next steps were what my forward progress looked like once. I finally kind of got a handle on what my own life was looking like or what. It should look like what i wanted it to look like. I thought you know what. I can't keep this to myself. This is not something that i can say. Okay well i figured it out. All my other veteran brothers and sisters can just figure it out for themselves. So i wrote a book called resolve. That is a step by step guide. That takes you through the process of rediscovering purpose after the military but that aside today i want to talk about something really specific and and and a lot of the elements of the book. Come into to today's show. But i want to talk about those six elements afford progress with you. So look no matter where you're at you can live your best life. No matter what phase your life is in your best days are ahead of you and that and that's a key element and it leads right into this first piece. I want to talk about. Get your mind right. And i know you've heard so much about it. No doubt about mindset and how important your mindset is and how much it matters this. Honestly the most important aspect. Because if you don't get your mind right you are setting yourself up for failure if you are going into any challenge. Excuse me any challenge in your life. And you haven't i said okay. Let me you visualize what i'm going to do. Maybe let me rehearse it so to speak. Let me planet out now. Let me go tackle it. If you don't do those things then you are really like. I said setting yourself up to fail but more important than all those all. Those things i just mentioned is what comes before that and that is believing that you're going to be successful. So here's the thing when it comes to mind set right. It is not just a one time event. It's not just this decision. You make to say okay. Well i'm going to be Positive in this particular in this particular regard or I am going to say okay. I'm gonna change my mindset for this one time only. I know i normally have a negative outlook and i think that nothing is going to go my way and i it seems like life is crashing in on me but this one time. I'm going to believe it's going to get better. It's going to be better. Look your mindset. it's a regular event. It's not just a one time event. Maybe it's daily. It might be several times a day. Mindset is absolutely huge and a big part of the mindset is asking the why behind your desire to move forward or more specifically than. This is where i told you some elements of the book will come in. Maybe even the why try and so in the resolve book So i put together for the book. What is called the nine line framework. It is a guide a plan for you. The veteran to step through one step at a time for rediscovering your purpose after the military and line one in this nine line framework is why. Try you know we've already had purpose. We've already done so many things for our country and for allies for families. Why try and that. And that's one of the questions you have to answer in the book. I share more about how to get to that point right but element too so i wanna get your mind right get that mindset all clicking in the right direction element to is discover your purpose and you've heard me talk about a few times you've heard me say that discovery purpose rediscover your purpose even on this show on this episode and again talk a lot about this in the book and i wrote it with the belief that you do not have to suffer through life after the military. I'm going to say that again. You do not have to just suffer through life after the military because there is life after your military service you know. Maybe it's a whole new career or a whole new hobby or new opportunities. You simply couldn't take advantage of you. Were in the military purpose. Looks different for all of us. When i'm friends he was a medic In my unit that we deployed with and he is. He's big into fishing like that's his thing now. I'm not talking like you know. He just goes allen out on the lake every now and then this guy is a competitive fishermen really really great at his skill set and he has found a renewed sense of purpose just in fishing. And you know what is he doing. They're right what is he who what does he really getting at when you look at it like well okay. Cool like he's into fishing. But what does that mean as far as you know his life moving forward or discovering his purpose. Look here's what. Here's what i can guarantee you. In his life in his his new fishing fishing centric life right. He's got a family and everything that he's taking care of but this this is one of the best things for him because he has a passion for it and in that passion he gets to live out what he is really loving about his life and so in his day to day life where he gets to talk about fishing and and go fishing and all this. He's building these relationships with people around him and he's doing so much that it is. It's so cool to see when a veteran really really discover is in uncovers who they're meant to be after the military and again purpose different for all of us. So where i find my purpose are where my old dock mimetic buddy found purpose and fishing. Yours is probably going to be the same and don't expect it to. You shouldn't expect it to look the same as anyone else's that's why again that i created the framework that you can use to discover your own sense of purpose and the next element that leads me right into this. One is forgive. Look forgiveness is one of the least talked about aspects of transitioning from the military and it is arguably the hardest i say arguably because some people never even come close to really dialing into what it is. They need to forgive. They need to forgive themselves. Do they need to forgive. You know an old battle buddy Unit commander you know those who've been victims of trauma or If they have. Ptsd from their from their combat service. You know what are the elements of their lives that they need to forgive and again you know i feel like i'm talking about the book a lot and i'll be honest i am because there's so much more in the book and this is line three it walks you right through the process of forgiveness and forgiveness is not saying you know what it doesn't hurt it's not saying it wasn't a big deal. Forgiveness is choosing your own freedom. And i think i said this on the last episode of but holding onto unforgiveness or or bitterness even is like setting yourself on fire and expecting the person you were bitter at or angry at or holding a grudge against expecting them to die from smoke inhalation so all forgiveness is as tough as it may be all it is all it breaks down to is that you are choosing your own freedom so get your mind right. Discover your purpose and forgive what you need to forgive. Forgive who you need to forgive. Maybe that's you. Maybe that's someone else helmet four. Uncover you in other words. Understand how you tick. What types of choices do you make in specific situations and one of the best tools for this is a personality assessment and yes. That's part of the book as well. That's part of the nine line. Framework is discovering your personality. Because let's be honest in the military you know. Personality is fine when you're hanging out with your friends or your battle buddies or whatever you want to call them right but when it comes to getting the mission done your personality kind of takes a backseat. It seems to knocking out the mission to getting to mission success getting to mission completion and so a big part of your post military life like who am i to figuring out what it is that you are not only passionate about. But what are you naturally geared toward and in the book. I use a tool called sixteen personalities. And you can check out at sixteen personalities dot com that's one six personalities dot com. There's also a myers briggs assessment. There's the disk assessment. Which kind of is how you function in a work environment and so uncovering who you are and the key elements of your personality are really critical to your moving forward in life that brings me to the fifth element. Make a plan. The fifth element of moving forward in your life is to make a plan. Don't just imagine a plan get one now. Look i want to say something about plans here. Right it's a whole lot easier to turn to the left or to the right if you're already moving. Have you ever set in a vehicle. You're sitting in the driver's seat and you turn the wheel all the way to the left. It's kinda hard to do or maybe you need to turn it all the way to the right. It's kind of hard to do because the tires just kind of moving on the on the on the surface there and you're like this is. This is really really difficult. But if you're moving you can turn the wheel just slightly to the left or to the right in. It's a whole lot easier. So when i talk about making a plan you don't have to have every single thing figured out before you start moving. Make general plan now. Look there are a lot of great plans out there. The resolve book has just one of those. Which i've mentioned is the nine line framework. Now let me be honest with you here. Scrawling down your plan on the back of a cocktail. Napkin is about one hundred miles ahead of someone who never writes down their plan at all. There is a fundamental shift in our brains in imagining a plan and then writing out that plan so make a plan element six get accountability. Accountability is like magic. If there is some magic element to rediscovering your purpose and to moving forward in your life. Accountability is really kind of that magic. And you really get to kind of see behind the curtain so to speak and it's kind of the inner workings of how that m- all that magic happens and accountability can compel you to do things. You would not ordinarily do so take for example of a group of friends right so every saturday you go for run with those friends and you know you have to get up at five thirty. Am and it's saturday and you really have to work today. But you're getting up at five five thirty because you're going to go for a run with these friends and it's not just about the run. It's about the fact that if you don't show up there to give you a hard time about dude where were you like. Why were you not here. This is this is ridiculous right. And they're gonna they're gonna mess with you about it and and if you're a guy that they're gonna call out your man card and be like. Hey you know like we showed up. Why didn't you and so the there's this element of like men getting up at five. Am to go run now. If you're like a big into running and you do it anyway. Maybe this story doesn't resonate with you but for most of us. It probably does so. We're supposed to be showing up to this run right and we're like okay. Well here we go. Let's go tackle this thing but Man tired. I don't know if i want to do at this morning at saturday. I've gotten up early every single day this week. I have a hard all man. I just remembered these guys are going to be there. And i had better show up. Or they're going to give me a hard time and the thing is sometimes. It's fun accountability. It's it's light hearted but sometimes it's someone pointing their finger at you and saying. Hey why aren't you doing what you need to do or challenging you to say. Hey here's the next step for you. Here is what you need to be doing in your life. Go do it so element. Six is get account ability. So let me quickly go over these one more time number one. Get your mind right. Your mindset is critical and big critical part of that is asking the uae. Or the why tri- why should i even bother element to discover your purpose. How do you do that. Well one way you can do. That is pick up a copy of the resolve book. I go through that whole process. There and that process is called the nine line framework part of that nine line. Framework is forgiveness. One of the least talked about aspects of transitioning from the military. But i think one of the most critical element for uncover. You check out a personality assessment. Again you can look in the show. Notes shared a couple of links in there and you can use sixteen personalities. Dot com myers briggs disc assessment of variety. Once you can use but uncover how you naturally tick element five. Make a plan. don't just imagine it. Don't just think it write it down if you write it on the back of a cocktail napkin. That's fine at least write it down and remember. You don't have to have everything figured out before you actually start moving. It's a whole lot easier to make adjustments if you're already moving file element here elements six. Get accountability and accountability. Is that magic simultaneously that magic and it is the secret behind everything else that happens in your life. Can you do things without accountability. Sure is it a whole lot harder absolutely because again accountability. Is this thing in our minds. Says hey someone else's relying on you to do this to be that saturday morning. Run to show up at work to be at that volunteer opportunity. You promised you would be at an an again accountability. I cannot stress enough. i wish i could. I guess technically i could shout and scream and throw things and you know you know bangel desk and things like that but really accountability is so huge and it takes a certain level of maturity. It takes a certain level of maturity for to do that. Now look we all have a lot of questions but the most important question you can ask yourself is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith. In jesus christ while i hope these elements have helped you. I hope they hope you think about not only whether you should move forward in life but what your next steps. Are you're practical next steps. Four moving forward in life. And i'm going to ask you specifically right now to go. Pick up a copy of resolve at courage to fight again dot com. Maybe you're not ready to pick up a copy of the book and if not just go follow us on social media where facebook courage to fight again. instagram same thing Twitter at courage again a. We're the most active on facebook. Though post a lot of things there you can join our post nine. Eleven of veterans families facebook group on. That's also great way to get connected.

A Human Connection Saved Best Buy From Dying at the Hands of Amazon

"One of the fascinating case studies. I came across in the course of reading. This book was best. Buy and best buy was supposed to die. Like like amazon was supposed to kill best by many years ago because they sold all the same stuff like big box was going away like best buy was largely dependent on like new. Dvd and video game releases for profits which like went away. So i was sort of interested in how they didn't die. What what they did and it turns out that they moved to a very high touch. Customer service model. They started this in home advisor program. Where for a fee. They would come to your house. You know best. Buy rep. Would take a look at your. You know your your stereo system and your speakers and tell you like which upgrade you needed or like they would be there with you as kind of a personal tech consultant and then they would sell you stuff on the back end but the the human connection was actually what drove the the renaissance of best buy. It was not that. They competed with amazon on price or logistics. But they they did do those things. But the thing that set them apart unlike amazon where everything is done by robots and sort of low-paid human pickers and warehouses. They would actually send someone to your house. Who would talk to. Who would talk you through it and answer your questions.

Channeling a spirit

"Welcome to kids myths and mysteries. So i'm your host kid crumb today in my month long. Look into all things around ghosts. I take a close look at channel. Lena spirit the practice of channeling a person's body being taken over by spirit for the purpose of communication has been around for a millennia. There are countless stories of shaman which doctors prophets and others who claimed to hear voices or received some supernatural knowledge from the spirit world. Chandler's also sometimes known as psychic mediums. Often use what are called spirit guys friendly spirits who give them knowledge and help them help others with the spiritual journey according to experts sonya. Roman and dwayne packer authors of to channel. How to connect with your guide. Channeling is a powerful means of spiritual unfoldment unconscious transformation as you channel you build a bridge to a higher rome loving caring purposeful collective higher consciousness that has been called god all that is the universe universal mine. Channeling involves consciously shifting your mind and mental space in order to achieve an expanded state of consciousness to achieve the expanded state of consciousness channels usually meditate trying to break free of worldly influences and tune into a higher consciousness. They may imagine themselves seeking out specific spirits of the dead. Or they may be. Contacted by unbidden by some unknown force. That wishes to communicate while most people channel to seek inner wisdom entire books have been written supposedly by ancient spirits. Channel through modern mediums and factor are hundreds of such books many of which can be found in new age. Sections of bookstores are libraries round. The world. the most famous american writer channel. Or was jane roberts who claim to channel an ancient and wise entity name set for her nineteen seventy-two bestseller. Seth speaks as well as several popular sequels. Roberts as seth dictated esoteric information to her husband about a soul the nature of consciousness spiritual truths higher planes of reality since the nineteen eighties. New age mystic jays. He night has claimed channel round also known as enlightened one thirty five thousand year old warrior spirit who described among other things being born on the continent of atlantis.

Thought another prominent chandler in the one thousand nine hundred nineteen ninety s was actress shirley maclaine who wrote a bestselling book and a popular television mini series on the subject. Channeling has waned in popularity in recent years so it is still practiced and it's widely accepted in a new age community channel. Information from different sources is often a dozen different spirits presumably dwelling in the same after world. Give a dozen different accounts if the spirits are truly imparting be important cosmic wisdom and universal truths you would expect different channels in different places and times to say the same things instead. Studies have shown that channel information changes with the times and tends to reflect the idea's popular in the culture at the time because there is no way to verify information and descriptions of different planes of existence the nature of the soul. And so on. There's no way to know what if any of the channel information is accurate but clearly much of it cannot be correct would help verify channel and as a real phenomenon would be to have accurate concrete and verifiable information revealed that only the spirit world would know for example. A person who truly channel einstein should be able to continue making important discoveries long after his death or a father who died unexpectedly and left his affairs. Disarray should be able to tell his wife and family through chandler were important. Documents are located to help and settle his estate.

Here are the best video streaming service for you

"So before we get specific services. Can you talk about how you assess them. And what the process look like to you. Know to kind of measure which is better. Just sit around and watch a whole lot of video online. That seems like a pretty good gig. I mean definitely part of the job Well i reviewed almost every streaming service of this type available. And the way i do is i keep each one score based on four different categories. So you have design. Which is things like ease of use across the different tv and mobile platforms. That you're watching on then there's features like does it have four k. Hdr does offer mobile downloads. Watchlist and how many are you allowed to have that. We look at the content. Like the number of shows in the quality of its originals. In helping the back catalogue is and finally the value which is just the price compared to all these other factors so together that gives us a pretty comprehensive picture of what these services look like and how they can compare each other. So that's that's a lot to work with so after crunching the numbers and all those different metrics what was the best overall streaming service. Well unsurprisingly netflix takes the crown for the best streaming service overall. It's the oldest one on the list. I'm sure you remember the days of ordering dvd's by mail which started back in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight if you can believe it and since then it's really evolved into this top tier service. That's just a must have for a lot of people. It's got this huge back catalogue of older shows to binge. Also tons of originals movies documentaries comedy specials everything and not all are super high quality below a little bit more quite good and have won awards and especially during the pandemic. They've just given us all something to watch together rally around. We had the tiger king phase. In the queen's gambit is kind of a closest we've got to a water cooler

Maybe greg we can start with you. Tell me a bit more about your own transition story what you did right what you wish. You would have known things like that sure. Well you know when. I got out of those one clive in the military. I went through paramedic school in my last year in the military. So i was busy guy for you know. Fourteen sixteen months in the last days in the military. I was also going to civilian paramedic school. So i didn't sleep in as i got out. I worked as a paramedic and did fine. And then i realized that really didn't make a whole heck of a lot of money for all of the responsibilities that i had and that i wanted to do more but i wasn't quite sure how to do. And if i if. I known then what i know now. I would have in fact on to law school however i was a single parent of a two year old and a five year old and i did that for more than fifteen years and i can assure you that. There's nothing fun about going full time college and also trying to get You know to be a good parent and to provide the income necessary and i had that entrepreneurial spirit and i wanted to grow in in and have a big business that that was bringing the wealth i wanted and building it from my retirement and it just There wasn't a lot of of a maps out there. Do this do this do this do this. And through twenty five years of experience. I figured it out and and we've done well and i'm in. I'm thrilled with my past. The navy taught me so much about responsibility and accountability and and those are certainly tenants to be an entrepreneur. No question about it but there was no road map. There was no getting out of the military. Didn't here's your step plans being successful on your own It was it was really hard. So i'm glad to be your health. Talk about that in the journey Will tell us about you and your journey. It was definitely a different Yeah absolutely so i was. How do i even begin this When i joined the military. I joined in forty days. Forty five days before nine. Eleven and I was an architecture student at the time. Indiana national guard kind of do a my weekend. Warriors thing and In after nine. Eleven i i just couldn't physically sit there and design buildings that we're gonna be used to blow people and caused devastation. I wanted to change that. And so i went active duty and went to school and in sadly my entire time in the military was was spent in school one school to the next and in one of those schools. I got banged up. Injured prior to going getting acceptance to west point from enlisted to the academy so i went to west point for two years while i was there. Got my injury that i sustained during active duty. The kid exacerbated to the point that i could no longer sir and unceremoniously. I went home with a ten percent disability. Seven seven hundred eighty bucks or something like that. Night came from west point to sit on my parents. Couch i legitimately want to move. I didn't even know your podcast existed until last week but eyesight. Now what what the heck am i gonna do the rest of my life. I had zero idea. I went from the premier leadership institute in the world to not knowing. I didn't know what the heck did so I decided that applied at schools Just just keep the ball moving and Quickly went to indiana university. Got into the business. School in really just fell in love with entrepreneurship and i let that passion takeover You know my healing process from you. Know both physical and emotional fiercely all of it. I needed to mend myself after coming out of the military. And it's a hell of a won't talk to make that work but Anyway yeah i mean. The transition was man. I don i even describe the transition with it was so unbelievably difficult. It shouldn't need to in needed to be a conversation with a counselor commonality military that said you know. What do you want. do the rest of your life. This is the direction you go and go. Do it can i. It was a lot of soul searching to find. It ought to be honest. But now i've been imagined doing anything else. Couldn't imagine sitting my day any other way when i do and holy shit i get paid for it. I mean oh my god. That's the best. The best thing in the world i completely agree with you will on on that. Come out and you're just in this hot this this song in this hayes in your you have so little direction and even if you had a career counselor to try to talk to you. I don't know if it's just you don't know what you're doing in life because you're so mean you don't stand different concepts yet but man you're just lost wandering out there in and Yeah i grabbed me by accident eck and smack me up a little bit. I do right by sagar i absolutely. I think if there's one thing that i absolutely did right was i I jumped head head on into school and education and building might tool set. Because i wasn't relying solely on the things that i learned in the military to to be jumping off point. I realized i had a heck of a lot of catching up to do. And and that's where the education started for me And obviously i didn't quit. And in fact i found a way to make sure that i didn't have to pay for which was really you know that was. The true transition story was okay. Hang on a second Your bettering yourself. And you're getting somebody else. Pay the bill. This this is something should write a book about Because a lot of that cedeno that hidden. I mean that was one of my biggest struggles was coming out and being twenty five seven a two year old and a five year old that i was literally racing by myself and i was taking eighteen credit hours Getting my degree in biochemistry with minor in english lit. And i you know eighteen credit hours trying to take care to five hundred worked at the same time you know you can get loans and all the rest of it but if you don't have a good nation in what's possible. I had no idea. I was eligible for vote. Rehab you know. When i went i had gi bill and believe it or not. The college never applied the gi bill. I paid for everything out of my own. And even though i was eligible for the gi. Bill is all the time it's really sad is what it comes down to that. We have the capability had had. I recognized what was was there army. And i recognize these benefits. Were there than i could have slowed down and cast in my kids. Now's a roof over their head and not had trying to kill myself to get through it in a short period of time And it would have changed the trajectory of my life. I you know. I watched medical school. Go out the door. Because i couldn't do an internship and be a single parent and i couldn't do medical school and be a single parent. Too young kids had. I had those benefits and recognized that they were available to me. I could have done more. I could've figure things out that's not bad. I mean i. I love where i'm at today but it could have been so much easier. Had i known about all the benefits that are out there. Not just disability. But is as you're talking about. Well the both rehab and the gi bill and things don't get taken advantage of profitable now. I was just gonna say we. We actually just talked about that. I think it was in the last episode about gi bill and how you can leverage it with the Volk rehab well. Vr program now but Leverage that you know those two you know really great benefits to you get further education. Everything i know when i got out You know. I'm sitting in the end of the transition not unit but are transitioning out processing briefings. Right and they're telling us about the va. I knew zero about the. Va except that veterans. Go to the. Va that's really all. I knew about it and they and they told us like. Hey go to the hospital like on post go hospital get your medical records and take him upstairs. Because i had a v. Va office fort hood. They had a. Va office up. Like start for a said okay. Cool and so. I took them and they said okay. Cool we got your medical records like okay to me. It was just another task. I had. I literally had no idea that i was submitting my va. Disability claim audios. Like somebody told me to give you these. I guess this is how i get officially into the va and become a veteran so to speak at someone like your most crucial claim and there you are getting pushed by the system through their said that you're not on purpose fan. That was done on purpose for years and years. And call me a conspiracy theorist or whatever but the truth of the matter is this is mon mon Insurance company pan out benefits and they've got an minimize this as much as far as sharing and you know the the the the hard part was to that by the time i did my first what do you call that first. Compensation exam with the with the doctor or the nurse practitioner. Whatever she was I'm still in tough guy mode. I'm still like yeah. Her s- i'm good. I can you know. I'm sure i can just suck it up for a little while. I didn't realize it's supposed to go there and just be blatantly. Honest like holy crap. This hurts this hurts. This hurts and i can't do this anymore. And i just went. I was like no. This is fine. Do you have anything no. i'm fine. no i'm good. I had no. I d like there was no. There's no plan there's no. There's no one at that point in the transition to to really tell me. Hey this is what you should be doing. This is the level of scrutiny. That they're going to look at your. Va claim with and this is the level of of intensity you need to put to it when you submit it so we can talk about that a little bit like what. What was your guys. Experience with The va disability claims program. I i know with mine drag. Mom i was cormon and i and i was I was one of the supervisors of the ambulance service in and they will. Hospital orlando in the training center training center there and when i sat down out processing with personnel. I still to this day. Remember sitting down at that gray metal desk. And here's somebody that's not much older than me on the other side of the desk in. They're typing out my dvd fourteen. And they're asking me different questions on a checklist and you know how many problems not have any problems you know. Got both of my legs. I got both my arms You know i can hear you talking fine which goes exactly to the point. You're making aaron. And i don't think it was bravado on my side is much as not understanding to transition process and the purpose of the questions being asked as they apply to me in my future not to mention. Let's let's young. Were coming from the military where it's shut the hell up in suck it up. Well it's not only that pervasiveness in the military will absolutely but there's a pervasiveness in the medical side on top of that of we don't go to call unless we are on death's doorstep i had owns and you know i'm i'm urinating blood. I went to the er. I was terrified. I didn't know anything about kidney. Stones about point. I tell you when you look down. Ten o'clock at night and the toilet bowl is you're ready to go to bed. You see bright red blood. You're going to the er right now when they didn't ask me about that as i al processed. I didn't recognize that. The jimmy stones that my kidneys continued to put out than started in the military. Were something that should have been taking care of for in evaluating before on the disability side. And so you know as as a cormon. My knees hurt my back. Hurt dr a are you know my gird. hey dot. Can you write me. Something for this. Ensures tagamet for this there was never any documentation. It was me and my buddy. The doctor who wrote something if i wanted it or b who went to the cabinet and opened up and took out the a hundred older motrin. It took it myself just like i told my fellow shipmates to do or the. You know the marine corps guys that i worked with to do so i mean there was a pervasiveness medicine on top of. What will we say about. The pervasiveness of we have a missions. Do the military. Our mission is to get the dadgum job done. Every single time is not to be standing in sakala. Whine about how this hurts. Don't it well. i'm sorry. I didn't mean now. You know. i think it's for me. I was you know i dealt with something that i deal with. Almost every with almost every veteran client that deal with. It's it's it's a pervasive problem. That every better needs to know you're going to be under compensated for some of your disabilities and you're gonna be overcompensated for some disabilities and when you're coming out of service and you get med boarded for something you know for me. I was hellbent on getting my chest fix chest and backs back rated properly in even though chefs in particular the maximum benefit. I could ever get no matter how hard i tried and no matter what i did was ten percent no matter what so yourself the net absolutely ruined my military career. That is only gonna ever pay me ten percent. I'm sitting. you're banging my head against the wall for at least five years fighting that fight when there was literally nothing i could do. I had to learn the system the right way you gotta do end arounds and connect everything possible to this in order to make sure that your stated appropriately for the actual shit that you're dealing against off that took years to figure out when you don't have somebody holding your hand through the through the that's really true. I mean in my case. I knew the was there that can provides healthcare benefits. But i had a job. I had healthcare benefits. I didn't mean to be a and i correctly and incorrectly depending on how you look at it. I wanted that benefit to be more available my fellow brethren who actually needed it and couldn't make it private healthcare good private healthcare because the. Va does a as much as they get. Beaten up in the news over. they do. Try very hard. You've healthcare Chewed the veterans other. They can't do better but it's not because they're trying to do that. And so i wanted that that benefit of healthcare to be availed more available. My brother and i never looked into. It wasn't until we want to buy a house and property. You're in texas the realtor said. So what's your your disability rating. And which i giggled including talking about and she goes well with your own. You won't have a fun in fee in taxes. You will either of your property taxes reduced or abated completely if you have disability and i said i don't have any disability. I have both my legs and lower. Did she said idiot. I've known you long time. And i know your kidney stone started in service. I know you're back. Problems started from when you were. Emc girl medic in the military in the military. How can you not have this ability rating. And i wasn't out looking for the money. I was making okay money so i never went searching for those benefits and you know that makes that much more difficult woken. Tell you when you're now twenty. Five years ho service. And the g jared processes are really starting to kick in that began in the military to then through this this connection. It would be much easier on him and i if we get the veteran. Who's diagnosed in service with my backers a bit. You know. I have a strain. I have whatever that turns into severe Disabling degenerative disk disease or herniation in those sorts of things. It'd be so much easier if those that are ins new on the way out. I need a copy of my medical records. I need diagnosis in the military. I need imaging. Studies are is cat. Scans whatever to show this. Something started in the military. Because we can tie that together much more easily absolutely and i think with the be. Dd program the benefits Direct delivery program that the provides This new system. I'm helping quite a bit of Servicemembers transition out of the military the contact meteorology and they want help going through their initial claim. You know it's something that You know you can't charge for it's a you know it's a. It's a pro bono thing but the end of the day were taken bets. Soldiers vets who are transitioning out on their first you know their initial claim walking out of the room with a ninety percent. Walk on service. Now we're sitting here fighting on. You know that most important ten percent on the backside to get you to the hundred percent but we're a heck of a lot closer than that thirty percent of the twenty percent that you're getting when you're walking out of there like a hero like you and i are all of us did back at our generation you know there's various services connection is an art. It is not a science. It is an art all day long you. There are ways to stack disabilities on top of each other to maximize your coins. And if you do not know what you are doing you are doing it wrong here. What it takes strength or something. We said to will as a process that that is like everything else that all veterans doing the military. There's a procedure. Here's your procedure. One five and the average veteran doesn't understand it is a legal process. There are statutes. The congress is there are regulations that implement those statues that the va is put out is a legal process and it involves medicine so it's a combination of the legal side in the medical side and the average joe out there doesn't understand the law at that level and doesn't understand medicine at that level to connect all of this stuff together both legally and medically right and so let's dive into the details a little bit of that initial. Va disparity claim you know. Will you talk about it. Being an art and greg you talked about it being a legal proceeding. Is there even a three step. Five step nine step seventeen step process. That veterans can look at and say. Okay here's what i need to do. And here's how. I need to submit that claim. I don't know if there's a five step process but there's definite general over overarching rules that you must consider and And i think most important if i could say This is your kids Number one takeaway take notes Holy shit do. Not shotgun approach your. Va clays do not claim. Every single fingernail do not claim every single to- fungus. It's not gonna get you paid number one and number two. It's going to paint you in a corner so bad no attorney can get you out of just because you have dirty your file. You're talking about non attorneys who are adjudicating legal cases. These people do not practice law. They are practicing what they feel in. Our job is to show what disability looks like as plainly as possible so that we can either capitalize on that person's Motive to assist the veteran or To somehow paint over bad in a file because you absolutely are are leaving a trail of tears when you are claiming a shotgun approach to your to your veterans claims Number step is only claimed things that you are legally entitled to claim so it's going to require a little bit of research on your part to know what you're entitled to but that's that's my claim to everybody number one only clean things that you're entitled Because once you start claiming things that you're not entitled to the most important thing that you can not lose that you just gave away is your a benefit of the doubt that fifty percent and when it's as least as likely as not it's you're full of shit and you're claiming everything under the sun You just lost your fifty percent when it comes to the thing that's going to get you hundred percent. Yeah i think all take off on that in a little bit of of education. The vast majority of raiders as will can tell you are veterans. They want to help their fellow veterans. That's why they get that job. However the vast majority are not attorneys and just like we were talking about procedures few minutes ago. That's what they do. They have a manual called the young twenty one one and it is a procedure manual. They claim they step through the procedures. Won- jews hyperlink year like there for five six hyperlink there is. I wish it was. It's not to say there isn't some feeling in it. I mean there there is they are the trier of fact they get to be the arbitrator in adjudicate the claim but they do get that interpretation on their side in trying to decide. What's right and what's wrong is disconnected is not but it is very procedural. It's they're not looking at line compeer in the law analyzing walleye analyzing the case law even the references to it. They're not opening. No they are now providing a claim. You know it's transitioning to the other point. He made a providing claims that are not shotgun that you're entitled to. What does that mean rethinks. You have a current diagnosis. You have continuity of your condition meaning you. didn't you know. Get a bruise in boot camp. In your thirty years later. Trying to to say i have a problem. You have to be able to document the progression so he is a little bit different than degenerative disk disease that you may have had back pain and service but it didn't really degenerate until a certain point but then it kept getting worse and worse document how it kept getting worse and worse documented in a law whether it's a blood pressure log a headache log of that in law document the continuity of that condition and the third component of that is the next service. How did that. How did service relate to your claim. It didn't have to 'cause it. You could had a car accident while you were stationed florida. That caused an injury service. Puts you in florida. Therefore that disability the you weren't combat got shot and you got that disability but it's still considered service connected because the military had you stationed there so it's not causation. Its relation to. But if you don't have continuity veterans lose every time is you know. Oh i had this. Bigger hangnail. And i had this. This shotgun approach. Yes but that's not a chronic condition. It's a one time edition. Thank you so much will and greg and has been so great heavy on the show.

Change your life for the better and happy to talk about that too. That awesome awesome. Well let's start our conversation today guys with the transition out of the military. Maybe greg we can start with you. Tell me a bit more about your own transition story what you did right what you wish. You would have known things like that sure. Well you know when. I got out of those one clive in the military. I went through paramedic school in my last year in the military. So i was busy guy for you know. Fourteen sixteen months in the last days in the military. I was also going to civilian paramedic school. So i didn't sleep in as i got out. I worked as a paramedic and did fine. And then i realized that really didn't make a whole heck of a lot of money for all of the responsibilities that i had and that i wanted to do more but i wasn't quite sure how to do. And if i if. I known then what i know now. I would have in fact on to law school however i was a single parent of a two year old and a five year old and i did that for more than fifteen years and i can assure you that. There's nothing fun about going full time college and also trying to get You know to be a good parent and to provide the income necessary and i had that entrepreneurial spirit and i wanted to grow in in and have a big business that that was bringing the wealth i wanted and building it from my retirement and it just There wasn't a lot of of a maps out there. Do this do this do this do this. And through twenty five years of experience. I figured it out and and we've done well and i'm in. I'm thrilled with my past. The navy taught me so much about responsibility and accountability and and those are certainly tenants to be an entrepreneur. No question about it but there was no road map. There was no getting out of the military. Didn't here's your step plans being successful on your own It was it was really hard. So i'm glad to be your health. Talk about that in the journey Will tell us about you and your journey. It was definitely a different Yeah absolutely so i was. How do i even begin this When i joined the military. I joined in forty days. Forty five days before nine. Eleven and I was an architecture student at the time. Indiana national guard kind of do a my weekend. Warriors thing and In after nine. Eleven i i just couldn't physically sit there and design buildings that we're gonna be used to blow people and caused devastation. I wanted to change that. And so i went active duty and went to school and in sadly my entire time in the military was was spent in school one school to the next and in one of those schools. I got banged up. Injured prior to going getting acceptance to west point from enlisted to the academy so i went to west point for two years while i was there. Got my injury that i sustained during active duty. The kid exacerbated to the point that i could no longer sir and unceremoniously. I went home with a ten percent disability. Seven seven hundred eighty bucks or something like that. Night came from west point to sit on my parents. Couch i legitimately want to move. I didn't even know your podcast existed until last week but eyesight. Now what what the heck am i gonna do the rest of my life. I had zero idea. I went from the premier leadership institute in the world to not knowing. I didn't know what the heck did so I decided that applied at schools Just just keep the ball moving and Quickly went to indiana university. Got into the business. School in really just fell in love with entrepreneurship and i let that passion takeover You know my healing process from you. Know both physical and emotional fiercely all of it. I needed to mend myself after coming out of the military. And it's a hell of a won't talk to make that work but Anyway yeah i mean. The transition was man. I don i even describe the transition with it was so unbelievably difficult. It shouldn't need to in needed to be a conversation with a counselor commonality military that said you know. What do you want. do the rest of your life. This is the direction you go and go. Do it can i. It was a lot of soul searching to find. It ought to be honest. But now i've been imagined doing anything else. Couldn't imagine sitting my day any other way when i do and holy shit i get paid for it. I mean oh my god. That's the best. The best thing in the world i completely agree with you will on on that. Come out and you're just in this hot this this song in this hayes in your you have so little direction and even if you had a career counselor to try to talk to you. I don't know if it's just you don't know what you're doing in life because you're so mean you don't stand different concepts yet but man you're just lost wandering out there in and Yeah i grabbed me by accident eck and smack me up a little bit. I do right by sagar i absolutely. I think if there's one thing that i absolutely did right was i I jumped head head on into school and education and building might tool set. Because i wasn't relying solely on the things that i learned in the military to to be jumping off point. I realized i had a heck of a lot of catching up to do. And and that's where the education started for me And obviously i didn't quit. And in fact i found a way to make sure that i didn't have to pay for which was really you know that was. The true transition story was okay. Hang on a second Your bettering yourself. And you're getting somebody else. Pay the bill. This this is something should write a book about Because a lot of that cedeno that hidden. I mean that was one of my biggest struggles was coming out and being twenty five seven a two year old and a five year old that i was literally racing by myself and i was taking eighteen credit hours Getting my degree in biochemistry with minor in english lit. And i you know eighteen credit hours trying to take care to five hundred worked at the same time you know you can get loans and all the rest of it but if you don't have a good nation in what's possible. I had no idea. I was eligible for vote. Rehab you know. When i went i had gi bill and believe it or not. The college never applied the gi bill. I paid for everything out of my own. And even though i was eligible for the gi. Bill is all the time it's really sad is what it comes down to that. We have the capability had had. I recognized what was was there army. And i recognize these benefits. Were there than i could have slowed down and cast in my kids. Now's a roof over their head and not had trying to kill myself to get through it in a short period of time And it would have changed the trajectory of my life. I you know. I watched medical school. Go out the door. Because i couldn't do an internship and be a single parent and i couldn't do medical school and be a single parent. Too young kids had. I had those benefits and recognized that they were available to me. I could have done more. I could've figure things out that's not bad. I mean i. I love where i'm at today but it could have been so much easier. Had i known about all the benefits that are out there. Not just disability. But is as you're talking about. Well the both rehab and the gi bill and things don't get taken advantage of profitable now. I was just gonna say we. We actually just talked about that. I think it was in the last episode about gi bill and how you can leverage it with the Volk rehab well. Vr program now but Leverage that you know those two you know really great benefits to you get further education. Everything i know when i got out You know. I'm sitting in the end of the transition not unit but are transitioning out processing briefings. Right and they're telling us about the va. I knew zero about the. Va except that veterans. Go to the. Va that's really all. I knew about it and they and they told us like. Hey go to the hospital like on post go hospital get your medical records and take him upstairs. Because i had a v. Va office fort hood. They had a. Va office up. Like start for a said okay. Cool and so. I took them and they said okay. Cool we got your medical records like okay to me. It was just another task. I had. I literally had no idea that i was submitting my va. Disability claim audios. Like somebody told me to give you these. I guess this is how i get officially into the va and become a veteran so to speak at someone like your most crucial claim and there you are getting pushed by the system through their said that you're not on purpose fan. That was done on purpose for years and years. And call me a conspiracy theorist or whatever but the truth of the matter is this is mon mon Insurance company pan out benefits and they've got an minimize this as much as far as sharing and you know the the the the hard part was to that by the time i did my first what do you call that first. Compensation exam with the with the doctor or the nurse practitioner. Whatever she was I'm still in tough guy mode. I'm still like yeah. Her s- i'm good. I can you know. I'm sure i can just suck it up for a little while. I didn't realize it's supposed to go there and just be blatantly. Honest like holy crap. This hurts this hurts. This hurts and i can't do this anymore. And i just went. I was like no. This is fine. Do you have anything no. i'm fine. no i'm good. I had no. I d like there was no. There's no plan there's no. There's no one at that point in the transition to to really tell me. Hey this is what you should be doing. This is the level of scrutiny. That they're going to look at your. Va claim with and this is the level of of intensity you need to put to it when you submit it so we can talk about that a little bit like what. What was your guys. Experience with The va disability claims program. I i know with mine drag. Mom i was cormon and i and i was I was one of the supervisors of the ambulance service in and they will. Hospital orlando in the training center training center there and when i sat down out processing with personnel. I still to this day. Remember sitting down at that gray metal desk. And here's somebody that's not much older than me on the other side of the desk in. They're typing out my dvd fourteen. And they're asking me different questions on a checklist and you know how many problems not have any problems you know. Got both of my legs. I got both my arms You know i can hear you talking fine which goes exactly to the point. You're making aaron. And i don't think it was bravado on my side is much as not understanding to transition process and the purpose of the questions being asked as they apply to me in my future not to mention. Let's let's young. Were coming from the military where it's shut the hell up in suck it up. Well it's not only that pervasiveness in the military will absolutely but there's a pervasiveness in the medical side on top of that of we don't go to call unless we are on death's doorstep i had owns and you know i'm i'm urinating blood. I went to the er. I was terrified. I didn't know anything about kidney. Stones about point. I tell you when you look down. Ten o'clock at night and the toilet bowl is you're ready to go to bed. You see bright red blood. You're going to the er right now when they didn't ask me about that as i al processed. I didn't recognize that. The jimmy stones that my kidneys continued to put out than started in the military. Were something that should have been taking care of for in evaluating before on the disability side. And so you know as as a cormon. My knees hurt my back. Hurt dr a are you know my gird. hey dot. Can you write me. Something for this. Ensures tagamet for this there was never any documentation. It was me and my buddy. The doctor who wrote something if i wanted it or b who went to the cabinet and opened up and took out the a hundred older motrin. It took it myself just like i told my fellow shipmates to do or the. You know the marine corps guys that i worked with to do so i mean there was a pervasiveness medicine on top of. What will we say about. The pervasiveness of we have a missions. Do the military. Our mission is to get the dadgum job done. Every single time is not to be standing in sakala. Whine about how this hurts. Don't it well. i'm sorry. I didn't mean now. You know. i think it's for me. I was you know i dealt with something that i deal with. Almost every with almost every veteran client that deal with. It's it's it's a pervasive problem. That every better needs to know you're going to be under compensated for some of your disabilities and you're gonna be overcompensated for some disabilities and when you're coming out of service and you get med boarded for something you know for me. I was hellbent on getting my chest fix chest and backs back rated properly in even though chefs in particular the maximum benefit. I could ever get no matter how hard i tried and no matter what i did was ten percent no matter what so yourself the net absolutely ruined my military career. That is only gonna ever pay me ten percent. I'm sitting. you're banging my head against the wall for at least five years fighting that fight when there was literally nothing i could do. I had to learn the system the right way you gotta do end arounds and connect everything possible to this in order to make sure that your stated appropriately for the actual shit that you're dealing against off that took years to figure out when you don't have somebody holding your hand through the through the that's really true. I mean in my case. I knew the was there that can provides healthcare benefits. But i had a job. I had healthcare benefits. I didn't mean to be a and i correctly and incorrectly depending on how you look at it. I wanted that benefit to be more available my fellow brethren who actually needed it and couldn't make it private healthcare good private healthcare because the. Va does a as much as they get. Beaten up in the news over. they do. Try very hard. You've healthcare Chewed the veterans other. They can't do better but it's not because they're trying to do that. And so i wanted that that benefit of healthcare to be availed more available. My brother and i never looked into. It wasn't until we want to buy a house and property. You're in texas the realtor said. So what's your your disability rating. And which i giggled including talking about and she goes well with your own. You won't have a fun in fee in taxes. You will either of your property taxes reduced or abated completely if you have disability and i said i don't have any disability. I have both my legs and lower. Did she said idiot. I've known you long time. And i know your kidney stone started in service. I know you're back. Problems started from when you were. Emc girl medic in the military in the military. How can you not have this ability rating. And i wasn't out looking for the money. I was making okay money so i never went searching for those benefits and you know that makes that much more difficult woken. Tell you when you're now twenty. Five years ho service. And the g jared processes are really starting to kick in that began in the military to then through this this connection. It would be much easier on him and i if we get the veteran. Who's diagnosed in service with my backers a bit. You know. I have a strain. I have whatever that turns into severe Disabling degenerative disk disease or herniation in those sorts of things. It'd be so much easier if those that are ins new on the way out. I need a copy of my medical records. I need diagnosis in the military. I need imaging. Studies are is cat. Scans whatever to show this. Something started in the military. Because we can tie that together much more easily absolutely and i think with the be. Dd program the benefits Direct delivery program that the provides This new system. I'm helping quite a bit of Servicemembers transition out of the military the contact meteorology and they want help going through their initial claim. You know it's something that You know you can't charge for it's a you know it's a. It's a pro bono thing but the end of the day were taken bets. Soldiers vets who are transitioning out on their first you know their initial claim walking out of the room with a ninety percent. Walk on service. Now we're sitting here fighting on. You know that most important ten percent on the backside to get you to the hundred percent but we're a heck of a lot closer than that thirty percent of the twenty percent that you're getting when you're walking out of there like a hero like you and i are all of us did back at our generation you know there's various services connection is an art. It is not a science. It is an art all day long you. There are ways to stack disabilities on top of each other to maximize your coins. And if you do not know what you are doing you are doing it wrong here. What it takes strength or something. We said to will as a process that that is like everything else that all veterans doing the military. There's a procedure. Here's your procedure. One five and the average veteran doesn't understand it is a legal process. There are statutes. The congress is there are regulations that implement those statues that the va is put out is a legal process and it involves medicine so it's a combination of the legal side in the medical side and the average joe out there doesn't understand the law at that level and doesn't understand medicine at that level to connect all of this stuff together both legally and medically right and so let's dive into the details a little bit of that initial. Va disparity claim you know. Will you talk about it. Being an art and greg you talked about it being a legal proceeding. Is there even a three step. Five step nine step seventeen step process. That veterans can look at and say. Okay here's what i need to do. And here's how. I need to submit that claim. I don't know if there's a five step process but there's definite general over overarching rules that you must consider and And i think most important if i could say This is your kids Number one takeaway take notes Holy shit do. Not shotgun approach your. Va clays do not claim. Every single fingernail do not claim every single to- fungus. It's not gonna get you paid number one and number two. It's going to paint you in a corner so bad no attorney can get you out of just because you have dirty your file. You're talking about non attorneys who are adjudicating legal cases. These people do not practice law. They are practicing what they feel in. Our job is to show what disability looks like as plainly as possible so that we can either capitalize on that person's Motive to assist the veteran or To somehow paint over bad in a file because you absolutely are are leaving a trail of tears when you are claiming a shotgun approach to your to your veterans claims Number step is only claimed things that you are legally entitled to claim so it's going to require a little bit of research on your part to know what you're entitled to but that's that's my claim to everybody number one only clean things that you're entitled Because once you start claiming things that you're not entitled to the most important thing that you can not lose that you just gave away is your a benefit of the doubt that fifty percent and when it's as least as likely as not it's you're full of shit and you're claiming everything under the sun You just lost your fifty percent when it comes to the thing that's going to get you hundred percent. Yeah i think all take off on that in a little bit of of education. The vast majority of raiders as will can tell you are veterans. They want to help their fellow veterans. That's why they get that job. However the vast majority are not attorneys and just like we were talking about procedures few minutes ago. That's what they do. They have a manual called the young twenty one one and it is a procedure manual. They claim they step through the procedures. Won- jews hyperlink year like there for five six hyperlink there is. I wish it was. It's not to say there isn't some feeling in it. I mean there there is they are the trier of fact they get to be the arbitrator in adjudicate the claim but they do get that interpretation on their side in trying to decide. What's right and what's wrong is disconnected is not but it is very procedural. It's they're not looking at line compeer in the law analyzing walleye analyzing the case law even the references to it. They're not opening. No they are now providing a claim. You know it's transitioning to the other point. He made a providing claims that are not shotgun that you're entitled to. What does that mean rethinks. You have a current diagnosis. You have continuity of your condition meaning you. didn't you know. Get a bruise in boot camp. In your thirty years later. Trying to to say i have a problem. You have to be able to document the progression so he is a little bit different than degenerative disk disease that you may have had back pain and service but it didn't really degenerate until a certain point but then it kept getting worse and worse document how it kept getting worse and worse documented in a law whether it's a blood pressure log a headache log of that in law document the continuity of that condition and the third component of that is the next service. How did that. How did service relate to your claim. It didn't have to 'cause it. You could had a car accident while you were stationed florida. That caused an injury service. Puts you in florida. Therefore that disability the you weren't combat got shot and you got that disability but it's still considered service connected because the military had you stationed there so it's not causation. Its relation to. But if you don't have continuity veterans lose every time is you know. Oh i had this. Bigger hangnail. And i had this. This shotgun approach. Yes but that's not a chronic condition. It's a one time edition. Thank you so much will and greg and has been so great heavy on the show. This has been absolutely amazing. we will share some next steps with our audience in the show notes as we don't have time to cover today but this has been so so great guys. I cannot wait to publish this here in just a few days once we get through the very long process. Now because we've been on here for almost an hour and a half. Oh man what get through this very low process of you know post producing this but This has been really great. I know i've learned a lot. No doubt our listeners have learned a lot. Thank you guys so much for coming on the show really really enjoyed having you absolutely are i would not try and in a motor selves doll. But there's more information both in blogs articles that are on our websites on the im l. a. r. dot com their blogs articles about all his unstuffy also webinars that the media von normal basis. That has a lot of money on and join this martin. I'm ask questions where you're to help end. Try and elton's many veterans hand and your minds and you'll get them guys. Make yourselves better absolutely. I wish i wish. I got a website to promote them in the middle of fixing it right now so Sadly i've got a lotta latin or the we're working on that Were growing like crazy. This last year and a half. It's been unbelievable in worth To do a little self promotion where we're entirely. We're all veteran. were were all disabled vets. For all young where he's All worked on the inside. Su know how all the systems work so there we'd and accurately communicate with the that's how we run a different off practice than everybody else who's We what these guys who they're fighting against and there's a alive easier way that i hope you've enjoyed this segment of the interview.

Shape shifters, with Worst Foot Forward

"The most common example in europe and later america is the werewolf accursed man who turns into a bloodthirsty beast under the full moon. The word where wolf comes from the old english rare for man and wolf for wolf. Dvd players and underworld fans. Please resist the urge to correct this to liken throat. Because they're actually different things. It has a parallel etymology from lucan therapists in the greek for wolf and human but it originally applied not to supernatural. Bc's but to people who thought they were supernatural beasts bc's according to the physician galen when people these days present with animals delusions they may be diagnosed with clinical like hanthropy like throats can transform at will and they have a more specific story than where wolves as an institution do in greek mythology lie cone the king of arcadia who got it in his head. That was not as initiatives people believed and that he was just the right guide approve it in the most popular version of the myth like cohn held a ceremony and feast to honor zeus. Zeus showed up. The main dish on the table was the roasted flesh of cones own son. Nick demus scheme being that would eat nikomas thinking it was pork thus proving. He wasn't all knowing turns out he was rather than kill like own. Outright zeus turned him into a wolf and resurrected the prince who then ascended to the throne but where wolves unlike in throats. There are half a dozen underworld films if you need more of that and even though there are many different werewolf legends in many different cultures. We're going to do our best to stay out of europe and away from wolves today as usual much easier said than done. Let's spin the globe around and see where to stop and stop brazil. The home of the boto and can tato the dolphin-shaped shifter of amazon river folklore during the day. The boto one can tato cavorts in the amazon living. It's best pink dolphin life if you've never seen pictures of pink river dolphin there's a link in the show notes. They're sort of mother. Nature meets lisa frank at night though the boto transforms into a handsome young man who seduces girls gets them pregnant and then pops back to his river. Come morning you will see this pattern of behavior repeatedly today the boto and can tato loves a party. They can't resist inviting themselves. So if you're having a get together in the amazon river basin keep a close eye on your single girlfriends because it's really hard to serve a dolphin with a paternity suit. You should be okay if your party is endorsed. Though boto cantatas may look human but they have a distinct tell they retain their blow holes on the back of their heads and will always wear a hat to hide it asking that handsome stranger to take his hat off inside may be the only way to reveal the bodo and cantata renowned for being charming to the point that partygoers will beg them to stay even as morning encroaches and the bowen can tato needs to get back to the water and they aren't one trick dolphins either they have the power to control storms and can transform humans into an cantatas themselves or afflict them with disease or insanity. Most people who live near the amazon won't go near it between dusk and dawn or won't go in the water alone during the daytime because in cantatas are fond of ducting humans. They fall in love with the children born of their dalliances or just anybody near the river. Who looks like they be good company.

Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine deemed "safe and effective" by the FDA

Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine deemed "safe and effective" by the FDA

"And johnson. It's been shown that they're vaccine is effective at preventing hospitalizations and severe effects of covid. Nineteen this from scientists at the fda we're seeing about. I think it's sixty six percent effective when it comes to moderate to severe cases of covid nineteen so matthew. Tell a little bit more about what we're hearing with. His johnson and johnson vaccine right so what happened. Is that johnson. Johnson released data about a month ago. You know press release but the process for evaluating these vaccines is that they go through the fda and the fda really unique in the world independently looks at the data and re analyzes the data that the company produces and its own report and then hold a public meeting which will be happening friday and so the documents before the public meeting came out and they had some good news both some really clear data on hospitalizations and a general sense of approval from the fda researchers. Sometimes they're not as positive so it looks like this may be another option now. The big plus is on. This is one. It's a one shot dose. So you don't have to go back for a second jab in the arm and also doesn't need to be kept frozen like the pfizer derna vaccines do so shipping and handling of all of this will be a lot easier much easier to transport and that's a big advantage. It does not look like we're gonna have a huge amount of supply the start off with so it doesn't dramatically change how fast we're going to be any shots into people's arms but for a lot of people i think in a lot of experts i talked. You think this'll be a great option. It's one and done. I think some of the numbers. I saw the might have about four. That are produced right now. Ready to send out so it gets approved. They can get those out really quick but it wouldn't be until april possibly where they can really ramp up production to start distributing that right and will also be getting over that where they're hundreds of millions of doses of the two vaccines have the madonna and fayza biontech vaccines. That are expected to arrive in the us by july. So there's gonna be a lot more vaccine available. The jj supply will ramp up and we'll be getting more of those other two vaccines that leaves. There's a vaccine coming from nova vacs. We don't really know about how much will getting the early results issued press. Release again good and we're waiting for. Us results on the astra zeneca vaccine. Now some good news. With his johnson and johnson one is its effectiveness against these variants. That we've been hearing a lot about so it fared better than expected when it comes to those. I the way to interpret. That is we'd seen some results and the new results that they showed today look a bit better than what we'd seen in terms of variants. There's still does seem to be decreased. Efficacy against the south africa variant. Three five. Which is really the one that we're all worried about but it did look better than what we've seen previously and what j. j. has said it seems like with those variants. This vaccine is still preventing severe disease and hospitalization. Which are the key things. We've always wanted from vaccine here. The idea that you'd prevent a symptomatic infection or mild cases kind of bonus compared to just making sure that people end up in the hospital hospitalizations numbers were good on that front. What did we see when it comes to side effects. I saw that there were a few unexpected side effects. Although these are very rare you know but The expecting side effects the kind of pain in the arm the headache fatigue. That's pretty much in line with the other two vaccines. We have that right now. There were some rare events that occurred more often in the vaccine in the placebo group. Keeping in mind that forty thousand people were in this trial. There were fifteen serious blood clots including some. Dvd's in that exciting compared to ten in the placebo group. That's something the fda plans to monitor there was also some rini ears in the vaccine group and not in the placebo group. So that's kind of an odd one that will wanna watch again. This is really a prelude to friday win. Some of the top experts in the world are going to gather on zoom call and go over these data that the fda assembled we'll be live blogging that stat. That's when we really find out a lot about any medical product. It's it's one of the amazing things. The fda does now an interesting thing in all of this so public health officials might have a messaging problem when it comes to pumping the johnson and johnson. One out when we're seeing guys like pfizer maderna's say that their vaccine is ninety five percent effective against corona virus. Just listening to numbers right. This says sixty six percent. So what are they going to have a challenge in getting people to want to take this one over the other or you know how how to work out. It's really important to realize that particularly between those three vaccines. The getting vaccine is much better than not getting a vaccine. The change vaccine may be on par after a second dose and that study is being done but unlike visor during the second dose is going to be months after the first and then also slows down the study. She gotta wait right for people to get their second dose. So we're not expecting those data until kinda summerish but the big thing is for a lot of people. There was also the appeal of a single dose here. And i don't think we should understate that. And the effect on severe disease is big so the problem is gonna be the in the initial rollout. You really want people to take whatever vaccine. They're giving because being vaccinated is so much better than not being vaccinated. And that is part of the path to get in the world back to normal and public health. Authorities are absolutely going to have to articulate that now again because there's not going to be that much supply of this initially. They're going to have time for a learning curve right now. the demand for vaccines clearly outstrips supply. That's why you're hearing so many stories of people desperately logging on trying to get vaccine. What scott gottlieb used to run. The fda has raised the issue of you know. We're we're going to reach a point where the people who wanna get vaccinated we'll have been vaccinated and we're still going to need to vaccinate more people and that's when convincing people who are less sure to take vaccine in to take the vaccine that's available is going to become more of an issue last question briefly pfizer moderna vaccines are based on 'em a. What kind of platform is the johnson and johnson. When using this like theatrics annika vaccine is called an ad no virus which is a kind of virus that is used to the same kind of ideas marin a the instead of traditional vaccines were you inject the protein that your immune system sees and then learn to recognize an attack. These sneak something into your body that makes a lot of proteins. You make a lot more protein and then the body recognizes that an attack it in this case they're using this virus which is kind of a cold virus to sneak some genetic material in and that makes the spike protein from the sars virus which your body then learns to recognize and thereby has antibodies that attack the virus

We ate full circle moment of now having on the port cup ellen. No it's lovely. It's like we it because of the strangeness of it is that you'll coming on to talk about depression and at the time when we met. I don't think you would have known that. I was severely depressed and i definitely didn't know that you were severely depressed. So it's really strange to then use lay to be like. Oh you're not exactly so. Can you tell us a little bit about depression. And how it started fee what it feels like. When did you realize that it's not just the normal sites. I guess when. I was just crying every single day all the time when i wasn't with people like even it got to the point. Where even if. I was going to the bathroom at work or just happened to cry and i was thinking night. Why why is this happening. Joel's like i really liked my job every like my colleagues. I wasn't actually feeding a reason to pinpointed on like nothing happened to me. i know. People's depression gets triggered by an event or something But you know everyone was alive and well in lovely was like why am i calling so much Why do i feel so we'd and A couple of physical symptoms as well that ignored for a while and then try to get those figured out By various medical tests on the response from the tests would like your grand. You probably just depressed with the physical symptoms. Or i came back from traveling i went. I quit my job in the end to go traveling. Because i couldn't handle the depression snowflake i came back. I felt really really sick and really really busy. All the time. And i was like off probably go some tropical insects living inside of meat. I read in magazines and like really adjusted symptoms and like crazy poo in all kinds of stuff and went to the hospital and had a camera. Put down my throat Justice system Because it will test symptoms and stuff that we've done previously. They were like all right. We need to have a remedy around but there was nothing there On the same with the dizziness. Feeling like i was going to fall over. I kept. I actually did full a lot on the even sitting on chairs and stuff just felt like the chasma warbling about to fall off the chair. Aaron and i had a brain scan for that. I had my ears tested and like old the kind of balance and it could librium and they were like you find. It's probably mental and one of the news is who's going through my results afterwards like you seem quite sad to be honest if property. This is probably depression of anything physical which was quite shocking because the simpsons with strong enough to be going to hospital and have people poking around immune size shocked when they said that on. Dvd kind of guy. Okay like they have a point. I have been feeling really rubbish. I am. I was shocked that the symptoms could be so physical for something that everybody defines this as only mental. You guys know as well like it's it's not just a mental condition. But i was like okay. Yeah i have been feeling crap. I think i've been caught trying to ignore it unlike just tough enough and keep smiling trying to be strong and a stone cold pitch but working so yeah then i ended up doing. I'm one of those tests on the website. It's like do you have depression. And it was like. Oh yes you do.

Bromances Could Lead to More Romances for Male Hyenas

"Morning in tanzania. The sun rises in goro. Goro crater the spotted. Hyenas are beginning their day. While vivian from germany's leibnitz institute for zoo and wildlife research sits nearby in a truck watching and waiting. Ooh the most exciting part of her day is when a male hyena crouches on his hind legs to poop and so i did collect a lot of fecal samples my money to a lot of behavior. Spend enough time following mass in onsite in tanzania in the field biologists have been monitoring the hyena. Clans of tanzania's. Goro goro crater for twenty five years. They've learned a lot about the species but there are still some outstanding mysteries why is it that high ranking individuals and in particular hiring man's often are more successful than low-ranking mass in terms of reproduction in spotted hyenas in contrast to many other mammals mass domed fight to access a high social rank. And they also don't fight to access reading partners and so. It is quite puzzling. Why high-ranking massive they don't fight and they are not necessarily more attractive to females. Why they should be more successful than males of lower social rank in also dvd and had nearly four hundred fecal samples collected from one hundred and twenty male hyenas. She analyzed the hormones inside of them and discovered that interactions among male hyenas were more stressful for lower ranking males and as a result they spent more time alone. The results were published in the journal. Functional ecology and do consequence of that is that low-ranking mass they spend less time. Quoting famous are therefore less successful. In terms of the number of spring the produced compared to high ranking mass. Who spend most of the time courting females all that time spent alone recovering from stress. Means that the lower raking hyenas aren't spending their time courting females and the females that they do manage to spend time with our themselves also lower rank the researchers think it has to do with the fact that lower ranking males tend to be newcomers within hyena clans. It takes time to develop their support networks among other males. They do have to spend a lot of time building up and maintaining these relationships before they can even think about courting females so for male spotted hyenas. It might be that the best path towards romance is to begin with the bromance

There's just nothing there so you're talking about teaching people. I was reading that as much as could. Because i knew when i went. I had to really capitalize on those trips and sell ob. You've done amazing job about that. And i just wanted to know if you could just share some tips with us you know.

They have patients where the young people don't however their patients will wane after one or two trips without getting up by. It's the biggest hinderance that i've seen to our sport and your people neck key is getting a bit a bike. Too late that fire they gotta catch something and You don't wanna take him out in this herbal weather conditions yet the weather good into everything your power to make sure that they get back in there and the reason people fish in continue to fish is they had a good experience and a good experience is something pulling on the end that the wire gets really the reason you're out there. That's what motivates people is the miracle of of this. It is amazing to me. My entire life in this business to see would fish can do this change. Somebody's like yeah. Yeah you know a kid sitting under edging blue gills and all of a sudden nowhere. A two pound bass runs out reminders. That back and grabs your bank. You never had. You're catching a six inch blue gills and having a ball in this best is your hook break where your life forever somebody had never muskie fish. You know they heard something about it.

That that their two n into good weather to do it in your. That's the key is to get get a matching get a matching get them and then if they're really young after three hours to think to run into live whether you get a few fish rockets there fascinated with fish bouncing around in a live That's the key really.

And and i know. He's very influential and big into the fishing businesses. Well but can you talk a little bit about what that was like raising your kids to be fishermen but also you know kind of raising them during that time that you know you're just so busy and you got all these things on with the with the fishing world and the fame that you had going on. How did you manage all those things and still make it a great experience for your kids. They grew up in the business. they did. There's not all all seven right here except in children. I've got two boys all of the kids. even girls. Three of his kids are girls. They all served in the business wing. Some of your friends. At the time we started lindy dako copier reports sinkers learning advertised snow. Rapper mind cars. Were exposed to the business is a family run. I mean all their life you know and they grew up in many different fields yet. You know it other things. But-but-but number stayed in the business in our in the business today like jim. dna billing and mesa troy. Yeah you know and and my daughter niece who worked as a pr rest. For many many years fishermen still welts me A right right material and press releases and things like that you with the gifted in that area but they grew up in the business thing. Yeah and and that way you were able to spend time together so they understood it. They understand the crab and the things that this life style. If you went to make a living a good comfortable living in deficient indiscreet. I don't hurt my myself and i know many people that you and i do not that then ended the business row ripley. Welcome rarities Actor to it these days. It's a lifestyle business that you want to get into anything cup. Lack of time it is. It isn't in ninth the fact you you know you eat sleep twenty four hours or so you go to bed at night thinking in still today at the. That's been in this my life. There is not one and go. That goes by that. I don't read something about fishing. Watch something about fishing. Talk to somebody about dishing. It happens all the time. Not a day goes by where some aspect of it is in touch in my life. A part of my life in My closest friends are pretty much involved in fishing industry. Right closest friends. Are that sparks your question for me. L. and that's you know i'm kinda way way beginning of this journey. I've got a small family run company but it's in the hunting outdoor space. And you know. My boys are being raised growing up when we work right. We have stuff to do. There's it's a small family run business. it's not you know. Dad goes to work at nine. And we're we're done at five and let's go do x and y but my question is long term for me. My dad took me fishing law. And now i go hunting and now. My boys are in a hunting company being raised. How did you see kind of the transition of with raising these kids. In the company in fending fishing industry they stayed on and continued to fish and still thrive as that was our was that a positive experience for them. Oh yes yeah. Yeah for a number of now. There's some of them that was not. I'll use my to poison example. My oldest son george in here in heat you shared with the. I'll give you my first experience with it. needs he. He was raised in the business. He worked in. It works wade through until they went off to college in it but he was interested in fishing gets his passion in his case. Was things that move fast snowmobiles motorbikes four wheelers dirt bikes. This is what he loved to do. Sounds like we'd get along pretty. Well do troy and the other hand off from the time. He was a little tiny kid. You could see the seat of he would be back in front of our h- house here a day and night catching frogs and just running up and down the bank catching he'd loved it from the time he was four or five years old internet. Never change he absolutely left. And i just think again. God created all slightly different with different interests and is a good thing. You had one boy in the garage tinker on motors and going faster and you had another guy you couldn't keep at the house. He was taking his fishing pole and he was to the water at four and five. Yeah in in in you and your the answer. Paracha half have respect know. I respect that. They have to be their own person in in in seek out for thinks the all that you know that those different interest levels impacted their right as they were growing up in reading some cases to to what they're doing today you know again my son toys into it in a lot of different areas of my oldest son and interestingly he he he liked even as a kid. You're living on the edge. He here you love the excitement of the snowmobile races today. He he'd get so pumped on yet in today. He's he's the paramedic he's a wilderness paramedic in he's fighting fires -fornia loves the game. You're whites. He likes ribbon on the edge to me. I like living on the salary to belated contentment. That's what i really like. And you know. I follow troy on social media and that that guy is always out doing something. And he's. he's an incredible fisherman. I mean it's it's yet it just anything anywhere any way any loves digging around in offbeat places for a coupla. He's got he's got pack whereas in no matter where he goes scurrying rats. He sees the body of water anywhere. Anything they could hold the fish he just drives up insider road. And rodney goes spacious anywhere anywhere crapping around the country with him because spent he's spent some time out west and i know he's fish some areas where i've been and it's just kinda cool to see that and i do want to ask you a question about that. Everybody has some of those favorite moments. What it was like a favorite moment for you fishing with your kids that you can recall the years ago with troy. I'll give you a. I'll give you my my oldest son that never got turned onto it and here's winter. Mistakes that make made with the there was a series the best tournament series. Starting in minnesota zillion years ago it was called the northstar bash turned into and when he was about four years old. I took an pre fishing. Mary and i got a cabin on the lake. And i took him pre fishing for that tournament with me and he had snoopy rag. You had snoopy rag. And they had to wait spinner baits. Then you know it was cool. We're up in the morning out. Who day thinking around. He's dragging this spinner baits through the water. And you know. I'm trying to catch some fish. Internet little said something. It's something from we'll get more moves out to have been great you you you hold in iraq ruled colin. He looks at me. it looks at the rad. He throws looked at me again. I got the message. You burn me out so bad. And so i think there's a balance there were so you know. My dad took me steelhead fishing. And i've i've got quite a few steelhead to my name. And if anybody out there knows steelhead there they can be finicky and tricky fish to catch i. I mean the passion for catching them is kinda gone. I've i've i've been out steelhead fishing and i've seen this in the hunting industry where you know you get some guys. That are pretty. Some prowess in are pretty successful. They take their sixteen seventeen year. Old son out. He shoots a world calibre elk and ten years later. He's he's not in elk cutting he's into fishing or snowmobiling or something else does. Ruggles images of the other side of that story would try. What are the experiences a for a number of years we as a family. A number of where we fished in tournaments in canada Rainy lake in minnesota canadian border. Another one at nor tap happened awake to work and we fish team tournaments up there and over the years that we hit fished at is a group together ranch fish with one of his sons.

Two of back in those weeks the week caprice fishing leading into that terminated. That was the week muster sunday for fifteen years. Yeah you know it was the highlights of of our trip together with all of us as a family together and each one bus us. Everyone about when i talk to the boys inclusive of troy. Now he says that was some of the most enjoyable experiences we ever had and all of us at weren't time and other did really good way. And i did a couple of seconds and thirds internet but did win one with him in california and in went ahead and opportunity. You get fish with you. Those times that we're in those events burn memories that they talk about still in. Those chips are really important with father and a son. I know with my dad. We had an annual trip that we would take to flaming gorge and that always meant the world to me because we'd spend five or six days out on the gorge just fishing and not worrying about all the other stuff you know. The work stresses of life. And you know i had told you in an email about a trip to voice in just those kind of trips. Just make a huge difference in a young english life and death makes it something that makes them wanna come back later ended it burns into your sweet. You get so excited and then you think about it so often you think you keep revisiting that your mind. Our great great great experience. Yep absolutely and i wanted to touch on something else because we do try to help you know young new people into get into fishing and whatnot. And what are some tips that you give people when they're going to a brand new fishery and they've never been there before. What do you tell him to look for. And what are some tips that you give them. You know it's gotten a lot easier these days because of social media into local bites really. I mean you're you're you're deficient research on lake levels in what the bites been like recently. Water clarity stabilized. Image is endless. In comparison to what we had sixty years ago running through the changes that i've seen are gathering in the business of what the liberal. But you could do so much preliminary work you know. Get getting on your computer Checking out google earth. Going to local site Hunting down to let local reports. That give you an idea of what the bite is like what they're biting that. Yeah you know. Even to death preferences that stuff today is is in most cases. These areas have a very dependable week. Al outlet and that retail outlet Is a great source of information. They don't hide stuff from people they want you to have a good experience and they have fishing reports. That are done weekly. yeah you know. There's things that are posted a soon as their retail operation.

Sounds like a lot of fun to me It was exciting. It was really exciting. Every day was true adventure. Oh man that's one awesome thing about fishing is you know whether you're going out your back porch to your little pond or no for for me it was. We went to alaska couple times in my teenage years. Dad took us up to prince of wales island. And those you can either go on a short little ten minute trip around around the corner and fish a canal right by your house or you can go. Halfway across the globe know go to australia does. The opportunities are endless and every one of them is special in. Its own way you know in every fish.

My mouth says big big pig. Pike some version of chicken for must be done gun with tubes. Big rubber bates. It's it's a jig gonna jk. There's a better way for all kinds of fish all the time anywhere. Get a one sti- family of bates natural leaders acted under the heading up a chick but she was a piece of red or some kind would addressing the guy if might wait if may wait. Four ounces for watering might be a one sixty four for crappie a purple mylar. Jig will work pretty good for steelhead. But i i'm preferential to to top water. Dry fly stuff. I like to see that fish commit. Come out of the water. That's just i. I did enough. You know wet. Fly fishing. That i patrick knows. We've gone on some high mountain lakes. And i just. I really liked to fool that fish to come up all the way out of the water. He's any kind of fishing for musky. Your small mop mop secure rare occasions. Pike tap water breaks. Those are fun if you wanna be consistent year round. Yeah you gotta you gotta get beneath the surface of the water. Yeah my biggest hike. Was i had a fifty three inch. Pike and this thing was was monstrous and it was lake. Naturally larry larry dahlberg and he was filming. But we're reading and got in fake cockney kakatua water are you talk about a memorable experience with that and You know where he's been everywhere to do everything. Yeah yeah you know. He's still thought at their daddy issues. Deck it was unbelievable scene and fifty three inch this. We figured it was mid thirty pounds. You know thirty five thirty eight pounds something again. Maybe it was. It was jackie gigantic for bike. That was half water. Fish birds played beat of ball. That would be. That would be a lot of fun. I now i'm like. Wow that sounds like a blast. But i wanted to change gears just a little bit One of the things that have admired you for years is that you're not afraid to talk about your faith and i think that that's very important thing and you know i want to see if he can share just a little bit about your spiritual journey and how god is played a big role in your life after the two most important parts of my life. The next year shared all all the time. It's fishing in my unity. Go hand in hand every day. Day is just part of my life. I integrated what we do with the television shows. You know the the impact that it it a try to kind of quickly for you until the time. I was thirty five years old. You know i was a person. It was not an atheist store. Nick knight that nasdaq. I probably would have favored more upper eighty s. And i don't believe anybody that spends any amount of time in the outdoors anywhere can be an atheist. I think that's an impossibility. But i had no really. I was obsessed. And i guess that's the only word i could use obsessed with fisher twenty four seven. That was all that and you know. It gets all in our businesses. Were building at that point in time and At thirty five started giving turkey in my heart to Right to spirit a guy who was just tugging in my heart. I met people that that Turned her life over to the lord. Lord that were hard party hard-drinking people that i knew a hard partier. You know when they were like a different person you night and day and he started to talk to me about about jesus guy stuff i never heard of before the enemy sound comes with a lot of people you gotta understand nothing really new number and then i started the search knowing there's life got you got your busse heart who's much of his life in in one day turned us away lord has given us percents and i says well i i can't do it myself i need help i need your direction. I'm just saying guidance. Any made a confession of faith. Like they're nice and his life and then for about two years you know i wandered around back. Studied the word guide. The bible began challenged thing to me to get through a through know little things like could this really be real. You know like so many people. It's this bible. Could this stuff really. But this this thing is is there a guide the foundation guiding coke. Jesus was the foundation. Is this thing that he really is is. He says he is to be comfortable recently. Said he did from beginning to end. Yeah you know. And i started looking at this stuff. You know one day it got out of my head arc. It was never less years. All i can say is if you truly search is real. He's there you care some words to be. It's a real experience. You know the the point he's got to get out of your head in it. You have become a part of my everyday life. I'm not ashamed for the dash. That's it openly. That's who lamb. And i can only share the experience that i hear. And how would i life. My family My outlook on business. Now look on life right back by relationship with my wife and the older. I get a clearer easier. It is for me out to be more appreciative of of my lord grayson so al. I've got a question. It's a immuno high positive this way in a as starting my own business in the outdoor industry and then walking in faith in how how has that affected you know business decisions and just in a living in the limelight and and outwardly expressing. Your faith is there. You know ever moments of doubt. I mean 'cause i in today's society and day and age is definitely not something that's widely accepted. Are you saying in here by some subject back. But what would you buy. S- i mean as far as just running a business and then walking in faith. I if you look at the marketing partners that i have every single one of a from boat motor rag reels lures lying a wreck. Chronics are the top right at the top of their field in their individual categories. Everyone of and we've been with them for many many many years. Some of them almost my entire career. And i've said in corporate boardrooms all over the country. Go going all over television space over television network and contract saying that we re mega conglomerate and never have. I had one of say anything about my confession of faith and that show it all. Most of them have said they appreciated it and go forward and one of the reasons for that is an and some of them are not people but they businesspeople and the bottom line. Is i self stuff for. That's what i still stuff on. I do my job or am i would absolutely. That's why they don't you know so it's it's a only one. Major major challenge would network. It was who was with a network and and jerry jones johnson. They want forgot about guy that that was the words that they came back came back and they said that it's interesting the way they did notification we played on this network for a number of years and this particular year correct when just the way it always hits in five weeks into the show and it was a wednesday afternoon when it got where got i got contacted by the president of networking. And he said it's gonna pull the show because you're religious stance on it. We don't believe it's we. We went network anymore. This was on a wednesday. We get i managed. They did this going to pull it if we did we. Did we read it. Every i reiterate that we think energy i get contract signed with a bunch of sponsors and i had to deliver the numbers in so we get at that show and euronet weekend in the entire re edited version. And we continue our attorneys. Said you know you've been with. They want to take the court. You can't beat it you got. You ran for five weeks already. You did this for years. They never get it. They can't do for this thing and and they talked iran in in my wife. Laura his wife's no we'll go to thorough. They don't want you. i don't i don't want to be there. they want. They want us to be pulled what they want. They wanted to be this what we did back to show to them. We make the changes in our last of the contract for the television season. We sent them with bill. They said the bill hearing on pitching to us and we sent them the bill. Bill them back or the editing changes. We have to make sent it back. I never heard from them. That i didn't pay for the network in europe. Charge them back for all of the pain and misery went back bent. So it's no legal. Nobody called us back. Matt a single thing the legal. Nobody their legal. Nobody never heard from him since well. I'm really glad that you guys you know you. Un ron have have always been good about you. Know talking to people about your faith and it's been a centerpiece of the show and one of the parts of the show. The actually look forward to a bunch is the very end when you go through whatever god lays on your heart and i really just want to say. Thank you for doing that because we need to be able to talk about these things and i. It seems like culture is trying to move in a direction where they don't want you to talk about stuff that might offend somebody. But it's like you know these are things that we should all be talking about. You know if that's part of your life that's an integral piece. You should be able to talk about it. And there's one one thought i have on that. Patrick is to speak to have speech to have thought. You risk being offensive. Right to someone. And i mean if we're just gonna walk around muzzled and mass and never have a conversation about anything i mean. I'm into big game hunting that that can be offensive. Catching fish can be offensive. So we have to push back. We have to go. They'll run over here if you don't get you know and i'm a big thing an immediate business all my life. I'm a big believer a freedom of expression freedom of speech. Even if i don't with it so am i even. If i don't agree with it you still have a right to share. I understand and i respect it. And i think that's something that people need to remember. Is that just because somebody says something. You don't like doesn't mean you have to agree with them. You can just choose not to listen to that person anymore. I mean there's there's stuff that's put out all all the time that i don't listen to and i don't want to be associated with because i don't agree with what their stance is and you know there's plenty of stuff that i do love to watch and listen to that. I do agree with people that disagree whether you should catch fish on spawning beds are not right in an argument about that or you can easily selena when you can easily get there. But but again. I i like i said i. I respect our our freedom speeches. An expression is an important thing. I've been in the media business my life all my life and in people have a right this year that i have i a right. The like to tune into a cheddar offer. Do whatever i want with it not read it. I can exercise my own decisions. I'm not gonna go in there in equality sponsors sponsor them. Because you're doing this dead. I never do. And i think that's something that needs to be heard and i'm glad that somebody i'm sure a few people here it on this podcast but what you said is very true. We don't need you know this. Cancel culture of of things that you know. Ripples need to be able to share and people need to be adults about it and mature enough to handle it and choose what they want to listen to what they don't. I mean that's it's it's really part of the backbone of what what our country was supposed to be about and Were anyway i do to change gears. Just a little A guy that's been really influential in my life on fishing is pat o'grady. I met pat. Oh man that's probably been twelve thirteen years ago. And he was getting his company started. And i jumped in and helped him out with. Pk lures and here. He had told stories about you coming out to wyoming and doing some fishing. I remember reading. In the law. ally wisdom books About seminole and a few things. So i just wondered if you could share a little bit about coming out to wyoming. Western space are so different than northern or ride scary. Yo it's a whole different world and you mentioned to you mentioned alluded earlier when they get used to is. Never any wind ever ending win in. I mean if you go if you're going to fish you better better get used to win. Better not bothering you. The rick the vote right the handle nbc and being a safe piece the piece of equipment. They handle wind in it. I don't know if you guys ever go through three straight days in a row word you calm day never. I don't think lever happen. I go to archery shoots. And i have people say well. I'm not shooting in the wind and they start playing. Oh the winds blow. And i said well you come to wyoming. If you don't shoot or hunt in the wind just don't go hunting joke. Defeat w. t where we go to the code is as an example. You look at the weather report the night before they they say the win the window. We from fifteen to twenty five. It means it's going to be forty plus asu. It'd be forty dollars. Plus that's what you're going to get the truth. Well you talk about seminar. That is one of the windiest places. I think in the lower forty eight. I mean the the wind speeds on that reservoir are ridiculous. But i'll tell you the fishing is phenomenal. How many winter they put around it. Yeah they put a lot of wind turbines that sucker for good reasons but those western reservoirs growth big fish. Hey we're trying to keep that a secret. Al off carp fish is amazing and even some very. I'm a small mountain. i love smart fishing. The small mouth world small mouth. Fishing is as popular as it's become the tournament organizations. That have the come up north and since two small fishing and a great lakes and now they're coming everywhere yet yet you know you get to experience it in tournaments Love it the small mouth. Fishery that exists. West of the mississippi river is still some of the most unexplored smart fishing in north america systems. I can't you're innocent. At west of the river or to western states many of those reservoirs got phenomenal phenomenal. Nominal bishop i. I liked to tell the story. I've told a couple of times there's a. there's a river in oregon. I won't give the name but an all out to you. We drift boat floated at one day. And i hooked sixty small mouth in a day and i got tired of jagan forum. So i put on a mouse pattern. I tied and i caught. You know half a dozen small. He's on a mouse pattern. Just throw it right against the bank and start stripping out and they'd at that river this drift boat only so motorboats in that that can be a lot of fun i mean those are their sparkling out there and some of the some of the bigger systems pick the missouri river as an example for four. You've got set at saf. You've gotta wacky a. These are massive bodies of water massive massive systems and their in in in in there. I mean the small muppet. Nobody hears coast that they won't see an angler in your role year for small. Nobody'll be their four. Pack four pack is one of the most remote fisheries. I've ever been to. And i'll tell you what they're there have got to be miles and miles of shoreline that never get fished and i mean there's massive massive in their own up in way up at that even at the dry air dry air too short that is about what forty i think. That's forty miles long. And then you've got that main arms like one hundred and sixty miles long. There's very few accesses. Oh yeah you know you're right. I remember we had a pw heat from the tournament. They're in what we we got the attention that anisimov parsons weighed in. It was kabaya. They rent way when came to brought the smart in with his bad fish. So we could wait and it was like a six three or six or this. Was that smaller. That miniature scale in your macro swarm are up in san francisco. I couldn't pull about about have to lead. Somebody's somebody structures. Just drive in his crazy ton of them in there. That's an incredible says. I said there there miles up. It is the most untouched massive untouched mama. Fishing attack. the guy goes through not to mention some of the. There's one night and forget. That warned that they bleed. I think they believe their next record. Birsh sure commander there. I can't remember to saturday with no gather some wells. Old anti yeah. There's some fantastic fisheries out here. And i know just in wyoming alone. I mean you've got a number of really good reservoirs for walleye and you know a couple for small mouth that are really significant and a whole bunch that are good for trout of various species. And of course he got flaming gorge with those humongous lake trout. And that's and that's an incredible fishery to we touched on earlier smarter and they've they've kinda taken a dive the they they think that the Burbot that made their way there. Somehow somebody moved burbot down there into that drainage from apparently around this area and They just haven't they haven't done as well they they were doing really well in the early two thousands. I used to go down there with my dad and we'd catch some up to four four and a half pounds and now it's pretty hard to find them. They're still there. They're just not in the quantity that they used to be environmentally. Then yep There's something to be said for that. You know when i grew up steelhead fishing. You'd spend a lot of hours and when you finally hook into one of those thirty forty inch fish. I mean they they take you for a ride for a while but you can fish for two three four days before you even catch one hook one hook up you go small fishing and have those fisher so dang aggressive are fun. It's fun so that's one of the beauty of them. Yeah there's a there's a little reservoir here in wyoming that kicks out you around five pound fish. Pretty regularly And i i went there with a buddy of mine one time and we are fishing. Top water thing between josh. And i we we both got probably fish apiece just fishing little poppers on the surface in it was just a lot of fun and then that thing that you talked about al that happens in wyoming happened in the wind blowing really really hard to get off their old of the gun the boat for your life. Get your your jacket on. Got what. I'll tell you that much we got wet but so what's what's next. What's in the future. What's what's you know. What do you plan on. what's coming up. What are we. Should we be watching for and getting a little long into or the age also slowing down. A little bit i mean jimmy wego muskie fishing me for four hours. I ain't gonna go in our barrett fats or two pound rubber. Big thing can happen. You're only as old as you act. Al see you know strongest kid. My body doesn't want my five. You don't want to receive that. There are things that are wearing down a little think. That's wisdom speaking to abandon. No too so. I i have to pick pick and choose a little bit a little bit more but i still loved the game. I mean know as long as i can contribute that this sport in a positive way. I'm gonna do it. i'm not gonna. i'm not going to quit. I'm not gonna retire up. Going to crack back. And i mean by cutting that i wanna do more fun fishing on the shows. Jimmy jeremy that the staff and other people we work with. I'd like to see troy get a little more involved with this stuff. These guys you pick up the ball and run every night for long enough to fund fish a little bit more by that go do some things and places a lot of bodies of water that i'd like to play around a little bit now for two hundred and a lot of people don't understand that you know when you're going fishing for the weekend without a camera crew that that can be quite pleasurable when you're going filming for an episode that can be you know when you gotta redo takes a redo when you just wanna go explore to make it happen you gotta make. It's working people don't they. They sit in their living rooms and watch that and go. Oh well they were just they. Turn the camera on and went and had a fun time. There's a lot of hours behind the scenes when the cameras work was in. And then there's a year no it's addressing a lot of times a lacking half and on hot fight fetched but then when you dress the show after that. That's when you get the underwater cameras stuff out to fit. That fit the scene where the fisher coming in in to get the right drum shots environment. Those those all add to the editing and make it a little more exciting the music tracks that that go with it. you know. Music is so subtle in you know a lot of shows don't use music because you have to pay Their cost us thirty thousand dollars a year to use a music so yeah bachelor of music track because their royalties and alma my companies right in this is our very first go. My dad and i went she putting this last fall. We hired a cameraman and we took him. And i'm learning very quickly of the shortcomings of we didn't get you know. Be roll. Shot here and this extra shot here and you know getting that underwater shot or that overhead shot that you need in. It's you know it's really hard now to recreate and get those extra shots that we need to produce the film that i wanna purdue so make a real exciting piece you back. That'd be rollers goals man just putting the actual the actual easiest park. It is actually catching deficient getting their artist on films that easy. Then you've everything else is putting it together. It's all better than that anything. Sweetening the more things you have to compliment. Show the better. It becomes the up on where we're struggling. We're stretching it as as as as we can stay but it's fun man fun. It is a lifestyle worth living. Believe me i if you if you could do it. And you find a way to get your niche in their buck doing it your sizzle lifestyle business for a lot of people if you if money is your motivation and you want to get rich. Don't come fishing industry and here's a lifestyle some of us. I mean you could make a good comfortable but if money is silicon valley and they live in that world out there if you want to be able to go out and enjoy the great outdoors and have a comfortable lifestyle. Fishing industry in hunting industry. Got a better choice. you will never regret. it couldn't couldn't goodness it better myself. I have one more question and this is a really important question.

Thanks a lot. So i think we should keep rolling for a minute. We'll wrap this show up and do you have to tell a story about al. I'm really glad he came on the show. In my first and only time that i've al was i cast in twenty eleven and i was working on my laptop and i was up in the las vegas convention center and i was sitting on the side. Which is a huge building enormous. I'm sitting out and kind of of the way trying to find a quiet place. I get wifi and do some work for pat gradient. Pk lure so. I'm working on it.

You know these are guys that have a vested interest in talking to al. And so i'm like i'll just wait here for a minute. I'm sure clear out. It didn't clear out. The mass massive people just got bigger and bigger and bigger and then that mass move down to where all the booths were. And i was like well. There goes my chance. Shake his hand and say thanks But w quicker next time patrick. Yes but now. He's got to spend an hour talking with him and he's he's a wonderful guy and he's made an impact on my life that you i can only just tell you guys that it meant a lot to me today to be able to talk to him when i was younger. My mom passed away. When i was fourteen and after my mom passed away one of my things that it was kind of an outlet for me was fishing just to get away clear my head get away from life and my dad. I remember one saturday. He took me down to cabela's in sidney nebraska which is about a hundred miles from cheyenne. So he went to sydney. Bought some fishing gear but we also went and we found that they had a rack of in fishman. Vhs tapes and books and so we picked up those things and brought it home. And i mean. I was in those things. Like you wouldn't believe you know on those rough winners of shan that i keep talking about you know with the wind. Cystic crappie fishing. That was there. And i don't mean the fish you know we we would watch those videos. And we'd get amped up for that next trip to the gorge to catch small mouth or that trip that we had that next year where. We just clobbered the ele- perch walleye at poison. So you know those kind of things really mean a lot to me and just al and just the way is just how he has so much. Fun has so much joy around fishing. It's just so inspiring to me and so having him on was a big deal. You know for me today so it was great but i learned that and positively right. Vate faith and fishing is what he said. But you if if you're not having fun in this industry and he really did hit the nail on the head. Yes it's it's nice to be able to get to a point. You could make a living at it. But if you wanna make money go to silicone valley go go go create the next app or whatever the next thing is you make money and live that lifestyle but you know he touched on it. He's been in the industry for longer than about anybody and he still working i. It's it's crazy.

How streaming services and COVID-19 upended Hollywood

"Coronavirus is up ended. A lot of things about our lives but few industries has seen as drastic a change as the entertainment business with the ride streaming services and social begging the question. What happens the movie theaters a broader. Chang this is your daily charge joining us way to this. Transformation is our media expert johnson. Welcome john so let's start with a recap of the year. We saw the launch the number of streaming services peacock. Hbo max and then of course stalwarts like netflix. Continue to dominate. Pop culture with shows like tiger king in queen's gambit. How did the so-called street war shakeout in twenty twenty. We saw breakaway successes and truly epic failures over the course of the last year among all the new services that launched in the last fourteen months or so nothing compares to disney plus the subscribers that a service brings in that's the currency of success for streaming services. And no matter how you look at it. Disney plus blew away all other new competitors completely out of the water disney hoped to have between sixty million and ninety million subscribers within five years and it nearly hit the top of that. Its most obstacle optimistic expectation at nearly beat that within one year not five. It's at eighty six point eight million subscribers at the end of its first year and then on the flip side you had these failures quickly. Which entered twenty twenty swinging it was booking super bowl commercials. It was making it rain. All over hollywood paying stars tons of money to make these short form Cereal movies and chapters and Daily essentials and other things that if you could see me i'm making all these little air quotes but it totally flopped and it announced that it was completely shutting down just seven months after launching. So we've seen some really legendary story play out in the streaming world this year definitely and in between though we had a couple of those services. Hbo max peacock which all launched as well and lose a little bit quieter for them up until the end of the hbo. Max how did those two services fair out when they were they launched didn't do as well as disney plus but nothing has done is walls just pause. You really. nothing else compares to what they've been doing you know if if disney plus had it had the insane year that it did their launches would look you know pretty good all right. Hbo max is at you know. I have to check the numbers. But it's at i think. Eight point six million accounts and peacock has more than that because he got chasm free tier. Hbo max you have to pay fifteen dollars a month to access it or b a each b. o. l. subscriber That has a deal with. Hbo backs in order to get it. But the point is you know. They're doing fine sean. It's compared to a truly extraordinary. Unexpected success like disney plus that. It looks like they're really doing poorly and to be fair to you know. Hbo max with its high price. Point the fact that the fact that it was kind of a Confusing proposition two people and The fact that it wasn't on roku or fire tv the two most popular devices for months that also crimped it in particular its appeal. you know. They're like thirty some million people that can have. Hbo max basically for free because they are. They're already paying for hbo and of those were at or still at below ten million accounts. Right we are back so it's definitely struggled in some senses yet. It will disney plus held by a number of big cultural milestones the hamilton earlier this year. Of course mandalorian is back more baby love even new law which at that dollar premium charged pretty well. Hbo max is poised to have its potential big moment tomorrow with the release of what am nine hundred eighty four. I'm curious what you think. The impact is there and as we sort of look for. You know how that's going to help set the way movies are released. Well it cer- certainly gonna superchargers interest in hbo coupled with the fact that it max not only is releasing wonder woman On christmas day the same day that it's available to see in theaters on those that are open It's also making it. Its entire slate. The warner brothers. Entire slate of movies for the entirety of next year are going to be released the same way where there. It's available to stream on. Hbo max the same day. It's in theaters for a period of one month. So people have one month to to sign up for talks log into it if you already have. It watched like some of the you know wonder woman. Nineteen eighty-four dude matrix. Four tons of like huge movies and smaller ones that are also heading to spin. It looks like that's ever happened before people are really excited about it. It's gonna supercharge interest in the streaming service. But it also means that you know. It's kind of a crossing of the rubicon For decades theaters have had a seventy at least seventy five days where they get exclusive access to new movies and of course during the pandemic with these widespread theater closures senate as being closed a lot of companies have tried to figure out. How can you can't have a seventy five day window or something is only in theaters. When there aren't any theatres open and the ones that are people. Don't feel safe going to so we've seen a lot of experimentation about. What do we do in this situation. But this move by warner brothers. Hbo max are. They're making so many of these really big budget movies available. What's known as day and date or it's available for home video streaming the same day that it's in theaters. That's that's a point of no return like things are never. They might not look exactly like that once. The coronavirus and the pandemic are in our rear view window. But it's never going to be theaters and the transit. Never going to be exactly the same again. So the reaction will imagine for folks out there who are locked down this is. This is good news but not everyone has created this with open arms. Right number of directors filmmakers actors have been up in arms. Or who's been sort of speaking out against this. Practice will certainly christopher nolan. Who is a longtime warner brothers director. He's bamed all of his big films with warner brothers and most recently His tenant was released by warner brothers and not partly led to this decision. That warner brothers needed to figure out something other than purely theatrical premieres for films tenant was released it did tentative fine overseas it did reasonably well but in the us tanks. Like i he nolan is is a faint is fame Famously defensive of the theatrical experience. He's one of those ought autour filmmakers who treasures that big dark room and the hush crowd gasping all the same time like. That's that's is cocaine or whatever and he didn't want to give that up and they didn't make him and they released tenet where it had an exclusive period in theaters and it s than sixty million dollars at the box office. That you know. It's standard for one of his movies to make one hundred million plus in the us at the box office so the fact that they saw that it's just not tenable Just not tenable to have this sort of theatrical this preciousness around theatrical release at least during the pandemic they went a different route they. There's is the most extreme that any studio has announced so far a lot of other studios are trying to be a little more compromising and their decision was made largely without consultation with filmmakers. Which you know. It's one thing to up end. These long held norms. Some of which a lot of filmmakers really treasure like christopher nolan really treasures this theatrical the experience and protecting it but it's not always it's it's the medium not the message sometimes in the fact that they sort of dropped this bomb on these people without with wonder woman. There's a lot of consultation with those filmmakers but the entire slate like they couldn't reach out because people talk in hollywood if they reached out to some people get all over town so they basically maybe with a little bit of notice tried to get it out to some people but essentially shut. Drop this bomb on the filmmaker community and that in addition to the fact that it was such a dramatic change from what's baked into contracts and what people expected is it led to a really huge backlash and we're going to see if they're going to get sued or get sued. You might have to walk back many things. They might have to take something that were on the two thousand twenty one slate off the twenty twenty one slates and they don't fall under this so called hybrid strategy. That's something we're going to play out next year. Well curious if this is a a one off thing or is this this pandemic related that twenty one is like twenty twenty a bit of a lost year as be struggled to kind of get back enormously but once you get past it go back to normal. You mentioned the crossing the rubicon. How do you think things the changes that were saying. Now my kind of play out the long term or will there be more of a hybrid approach like what one of the things look like once we get to some semblance of normalcy again. It's never going back to the way. It was like the way the seventy five day ninety day window. That theaters get new movies. That's not coming back even after the pandemic because i think consumers for a really long time have wanted more options. Especially i mean. Young consumers don't understand even older consumers. Don't understand why you have to wait that long to choose where you get to watch your movie you know. Like the seventy five and ninety day window and theater followed by the dvd followed by online vod online rentals followed by a pay one window followed by a pay to win. Like there's going it's going to change but we can say for sure. Theaters are not going to be able to count on that sort of cushion. Seventy five day to ninety day window getting all new movies. They can't count on that because too many of these studios are owned by media companies that are also launching streaming services. I'm really want them to succeed. It's not just warner brothers on by. At and t. and also owns hbo. Max that is playing and experimenting with these new formats like you mentioned milan. That's disney disney decided disney of all studios. They build their franchises on theatrical release. That means a lots of them. But they're still even toying with things like you said they released hamilton which is supposed to be a big screen movie. Next year they released it more than a year in advance and put a totally free on disney plus for their big budget stuff. They're putting it on disney plus with this. What's not calling premier access which is basically when you pay a thirty dollar extra fee and you get movies like milan that you can stream day and date same day as in theaters next year. They're going to do that with riot. Dragon but even with dizzy. They've said they haven't defined what they're gonna do with marvel movies. It looks like they're gonna give marvel movies. Which are you know. Some of their biggest blockbusters that they still have on the slate coming up. They're going to give them some time in the theaters because they know how important that is to building a franchise having that sort of mythic proportion in a theater is really important to a marvel movie whether or not black widow comes to streaming a lot earlier than it would have before in previous you know. In the olden days. A year ago it would've taken about six months to nine months for any theatrical disney movie to make the disney plus. Maybe that'll shrink. What we do know is that theaters are not going to be able to count on a seventy five day. Window consumers are going to have a lot more options about win and where they get to watch new movies and the theatrical spirits is going to have to change you know without having that really special treatment that kid gloves treatment of getting seventy five day window. You're going to see theaters having to adapt offering more food upgrading. The experience of going there They're gonna have to experiment with a lot of different payment models even maybe The point is movie. Theaters haven't really had to adapt or innovate for decades. Because i've had this protected window and that protected window is going to change. But it's never coming back the way it was and the theater. Experience is going to change too so that change is thrust upon them and they're forced to adapt. Do you think theaters are doomed to failure are they are they they are they screwed ultimately. Because i frankly i missed the theater experience but i can't see myself going back for while and so we'll we'll theater survive long enough to be able to adapt and change. Yeah the are going to survive like they just won't be as many and they won't look the same as they did. Which you know a natural thing movies have been around cinemas have been around for a really long time. It's one of. Its basically the first mass mass visual audio visual media You don't have theaters like the depression-era people's palaces anymore. we don't go to theaters. That look like someplace that would have a metropolitan opera in. That's what happened in the twenties thirties. We don't have that anymore because things change television happened. So that's going to be another change but what you're gonna see the the gigantic megaplexes. Amc's the cinemark probably going to get smaller because they can't if you don't have that exclusive access to something that people can choose whether or not they're watching it on that big screen or watching on their home screen where people are going to be able to. They're going to choose to watch it on their home screen and so you don't just need as many movie screens in america anymore. So we're going to see theaters close. We might see some chains completely. Go out of business. The thing that will be interesting to see is how smaller chains mom-and-pop theaters you know the local art house theater. The smaller chains like alamo draft house. We're already seeing that. Those are those are the theaters in cinemas that are more likely to adopt because they don't have a sort of mcdonald's mass market Happy meal mentality. they're catering to a local community. They're more likely to know the sort of things that would bring people into their theater if it's more than just movies it's easier for them to pivot in. Adopting alamo draft house was one of the first chains so to speak. That offered this rent a whole theater option. Which has become more popular during the pandemic instead of having to spend three hundred to a thousand two more dollars to rent entire theater. It's like look we can't can barely show this to people because of restrictions. Why don't you rent the theater for a hundred bucks and you can bring fifteen of your closest friends and you can all like sit apart from each other and you can be pretty confident that we're going to be sanitizing it because we don't or trying to stuff seats because we have to stuff seats. They were the first ones to innovate in that sense. And we start to adopt adapt that model so no like theaters. Theaters aren't going to die. They're just gonna look a lot different in the future

I don't want you know. Perfect great big. It wasn't is it wasn't it was talking on you. watch it again. I think we kinda we kind of over exaggerated and over the year. It wasn't it wasn't really drive. It was more like it's. It's definitely one of those ones that we just built it up. It's like superman to that. We always built august l.

"Think of a data product manager is like working for oracle or being in charge of shipping database but that's you know that's sort of a bit older school at at this point and there's all kinds of other interesting applications of data infrastructure data technologies that are not directly in the database world where real world product managers in the modern modern era. I'm sort of need to understand how to interact with the stock and then how to build data tooling whether it's internal tooling for developers or customer consumer facing feature sure so i think <hes> embracing the product manager at the top of the stock has been super helpful for our community as well and i find it interesting that you are bringing in the product arctic manager because there has long been a division in particularly with technical disciplines where you have historically the software engineer are who is at odds with the systems administrator and then recently the data scientists or data analyst who is at odds with data engineer but there has been an increasing creasing alignment across the business case and less so in terms of the technical divisions and i'm curious what year view is in terms of how wow the product manager fits in that overall shift in perspective and what their responsibility is within an organizational structure to to help with the overall alignment in terms of requirements envision and product goals between those different technical disciplines yeah well. Hey hey i think i think this is just a super. This is a this question's a microcosm of what's really happening in the engineering world because i i think software engineers at the core at the central location are actually eating disciplines and roles that used to be sort of beneath beneath them and above them on so again. I'm sort of thinking in terms of this vertical stock but you know most modern tech companies. Don't have d._v._d.'s because the software engineer is now the the d._a. And many companies don't have designated infrastructure teams because a software engineer is responsible for their own infrastructure in some but that is because of cloud another dynamics but sort of copying. Is you know at its core. The engineer is eating the world and it's bigger than just software in the world engineers in the world and so i think the the absorption of some of these older roles into what's now considered course offering has happened below and i think it's happening above suicide think some product management is collapsing into the world and software engineer or engineers are sort of flattering up in product management and i think part of that is the nature of these deeply technical products that were building so i think many engineers make awesome product managers immune. Perhaps they have to step away and be willing. We not tried as much code anymore but because they have an intrinsic understanding of the way these systems bill. I think engineers are just sort of like reaching and and and <hes> absorbing a lot of these other roles and so some of the best product managers that you know i think we've seen <hes> have been a suffrage near so i just think that there's a a real merging aging. This is just a larger perception that have of the world <hes> into the software engineering related disciplines and i think it's actually not a far leap to sort of see how an engineer a product manager who's informed with an engineering discipline is super effective in that role so i just think this is a broader trend that were seeing overall thumbing sense..

"You don't give people the benefit of the doubt. If you think that someone's armed you're quick to do a pat down search to make sure that you're all safe there and you find yourself <hes> when you enter a room just sort of unconsciously looking for cover or concealment and you know if shattering out where's the closest car engine black where i can take cover behind. You won't always be thinking tactically like that because some start start shooting at this moment and you don't want to have several blank slate you wanna ready set of thought your way through that and be prepared when you go to a domestic call. Somebody calls domestic violence. You're going into a house or an apartment. It seems to be that's a highly dangerous situation situation true it is i think if you talk to most cops they'd say that the harry situation they'd been in have been devi calls. <hes> you know you have have you have passions that are running high and readings reasons running low <hes> if you're in a house anywhere in the kitchen. There's probably half a doesn't weapons there. You know people in d._v._d.'s have used knives against their partner against the officers <hes>. They've used a part of scalding coffee. You really have to be angered. There's an officer going into a situation like that because i've seen these situations where you go into a house. The lights are off. There's a long hallway. There's different rooms in different doors and you do go in because there's a victim in there somewhere right. How do you protect yourself in a situation like that. Obviously somebody could step out of there with a shotgun and somebody could step out of there. With who knows. Do you have your gun drawn. What do you do usually if there is any indication that a weapon was used in the the call that you're going to then you'll have your gun out <hes> they teach you <hes> in the cadmium beyond <hes> with the call room clearing techniques just so <hes> just sort of blunder through a room. There's techniques you can use to enter an attack in tactful way and then used. I used you know he uses many capsules. You need to make sure that the that the scene safe and you don't automatically just because the call comes in that say the husbands has bettering the wife to be the case that <hes> the wife is the actual suspect gets arrested so you don't pretend that you have the whole thing figured out before you really sit down and start investigating. I've seen officers come in to a very dark restaurant bar. Go deep back in to it where there's trouble in the back. It just seems to me that hundred different things could happen in that situation. I've always wondered why they don't like the situation up big time before they go in. You know it's funny. You say that i have been in situations myself. I've been in exact situation you've described and and i've had my flashlight out in a couple of cops over there flashlights out and then someone will say hey genius. Why don't you in her. Once you look for a light switch and then someone will turn it on you know good thought but you you get used to respond to let a homes where the light bulbs are all burnt out or they don't work that sometimes it's it's crazy sounds. That's not the first thing you think of you think well. I got my flashlight. I'm good you just trying to be self-sufficient right. There's a friend of mine that produces sousse cops so i've watched that show a lot and it's interesting to me that in almost every episode where they go in a house there's a guys sitting on the bed in the back bedroom either with no shirt on or one of these strap shirts on that looks up and is not the least bit surprised that there are two cops in his bedroom. Where do they find these guys. I mean he's sitting there on his bed and he he looks at a high. We're the guys that he's not surprised that. There's two cops in his bedroom. She said you notice that that's just a wednesday night for that guy..

I don't know if i've ever given anyone five out of anything other than a five hundred five some some six hundred five probably in there so a sort of not been living life not been living life <hes> i.

Maybe it's not that he he did no he was going to die. He a he knew he was going to pass away and kind of get the feeling that in this book he was trying to throw in a lot of a fan service so normally with terry pratt book almost feel like they stand alone and you not having any experience with with the world could just pick one up in read it and they'll be things in it that are nods to previous books but <hes> but nothing that would were were you would lose your excitement and your and your amazement at reading a terrific book a however in this one.

I definitely wouldn't say this one now for me. I'm giving it a five at five i because i've forgotten loved it because i have read all the previous books but <hes> i think this is the least likely starter book which you know it's the fortieth book in the a series of it sort of makes sense but the the other thing about terry project books which he sort of famous for his there's not really a necessarily chronological ness oh how about afterward for word to them so like the each book will focus on a different character and it's not necessarily surly chronological spoiled down because rather time talk you pronto time ironic.

That's when you when you said when you were talking about. <hes> folks like sort of completely separate himselves creating this other a community like that. That's why i said i know just what you're talking about because i think there's specificity in being being my sexual that that's not just true for the black community through early every community where there's like this hyper queer identified part of culture where it's like. No i just go to gay bars. I like love track. I mean we know what it looks like right that thing and because of what it is to be by i i would imagine it's like you can't fully live in that space or you. Can i guess you could be by date men for the rest of your life. Never you know because you might occasionally like have this <hes> shift in how you read by the outside world. It's like you're straddling this line. Where like kinda can't fully dive into that community. It's like i think about. I mean again just talking about t._v. It's like i think about the show noah's ark detroit's show i did. It's like fanta. Anna knows i love noah's ark but it's also about a very self contained community. When my show got announced i remember there was an account. Uh one of those entertainment type accounts that tweeted my show was would be the first show with a queer black lead since that. Let's show and i remember replying to that like pets. Gain polk was like my savior when i was a kid like when i was in college collagen show was out because you have goosebumps on my arm actual and he replied to it it was one of those things where it was like having that show seeing that even though they were all gay it was still like just seeing black men being anything other than straight was amazing and i remember at the time when i first discovered the show i bought the d._v._d.'s these and i hid them as i didn't want anybody to light just stumble upon them and be like what's this this oh really into the church just like variances saving animals to to. It's just like just a good show that i watch no reason but yeah like having until i watch that in secret as like a college was twani <unk> had i had to be like in my early twenties torch into college. Maybe the same age older you thirty three okay. I'm thirty six a little older than you but like same thing where i was like discovering that right 'cause like that show was on not like sort of concurrently with the l word after queer as folk so there had been like literally lake three yeah shows that had at all a great community but then queers folk. I don't know if i don't remember any black characters on the always there was one rose one who likes like stood for all the how it is right and then but was great 'cause there's actors also had like chemistry with each each other. Yeah it was a lot of care and they weren't like they were being fully who they were like in polk did a great job with just being like back. I'm gonna make these characters like the people i know and it was just great. See even if you like they didn't necessarily care for the content or whatever it was. It was like these people are living a version of my life. I remember how you heard about it. I'm curious. I think it might have come from <hes> might might even saw an ad on logo or something right because i used to watch when like i remember when logo got announcing outside channel like what would stuff off with anything that i'm like might be able to relate to in another way and it was like such a big deal like kate.

I was thinking about how you can still buy. D._V._D.'s despite all the video streaming options but realize that isn't true Netflix exclusive shows where they want ah to drive to you to their platform.

"To have the new weather line which is an excellent alternative to the apple weather APP for example but for flight and instead. I think flighty is a is the logic pretend of flight-tracking d._v._D.'s and not not everybody needs that yes and I think this points out a couple of things first of all. I think that business models now more than ever are important when we're reviewing an APP because and this is something I mean I guess for the developers out there to think about is letting people like us no as far in advance as possible. How your pricing your APP because I didn't you know I didn't know till fairly late in the game with the pricing was going the be here and you know in a world that we had five years ago when most apps were five dollars or less? The price was not a very big factor in the review but an APP. That's priced at seventy dollars a year. Are That's not something that we can just act like anybody is going to want to pay for it right. I mean this this narrows the audience for this particular APP especially when as you said I think we both had the sense that a lot of people were expecting this to be more of an APP for. Everybody and I don't think it really is <hes> so there's that I just think that you know pricing become a bigger part of our jobs in terms of figuring out who the APPS or four and you know whether it fits that audience well and and then secondly I don't want to pass by the fact that there is a free version you can use this APP for free and it'll give you the basics the kind of stuff that you and I care about like departure times and gates and baggage claim and all that sort of stuff the problem though no is is that what they do in the APP is they they take these sections that are pro that have pro and they blurred them out and interspersed between those blocks of blurred and it's the data behind the blurring you can read it. It's not totally blurred but it's not the actual data. It's placeholder data so it's really just like it's like dummy data so fake data <hes> Yes yes. It is so it's it's all it's doing then for someone who's using the APP for for free is making the view a lot longer and requiring you to scroll past some of that in order to get to the data that is part of the free plan and that really bothered me just because I just feel like it was a bad user experience especially since those blurred sections in the corner had a little try pro badge in the corner which there were five of those and you know part of the thing to sell it part of the marketing of this was that it's Ad Free I have a hard time calling all in that it's not third party ads but its ads for the pro-peace hours yeah right right and and you know especially an APP that is also marketed as.

The rise in the fall of E C W and it's great it's on the network. The documentary part is on the network. It's almost three hours long and they go through everything. Everything is great. It's awesome. I love it. It's still probably my favorite W._W._e.. Home video release ever and it sold like crazy it sold. I think only Wrestlemainia sold more D._V._d.'s the year that then d._v._d.. D._V._D. came out so you know raise a lot of eyebrows and then the story goes that Rob Van dam was the first person that actually pitched Vince McMahon on an e c w reunion pay per view and said you got all these guys here wanting you to NEC W. Pay Per view and then the wheels start turning the D._V._d.. Sales are with the D._V._D.. Sales are and in two thousand five they put together this one night. Stand pay per view at the Hammerstein ballroom which is done in a way the W._w._e.. Never really had or it really has since done it. It was totally different totally different if it didn't look like W._W._e.. It wasn't polished. It looked like the people producing EC W pay per views were truly given free reign and and they produce this pay per view in the paper was super successful. I think it did three hundred thousand pay per view buys it sold out Hammerstein ballroom and it was one of the first pay per views that they offered on W._w._e.. Dot Com the website crashed so apparently you were even more than the three hundred thousand that wanted to see this thing and then of course the D._V._D.. And everything and they go okay. WE'RE GONNA go back next year and we're going to do one night. Stand two thousand six and this pay per view is unique because this this isn't a reunion show because right around one night stand two thousand five Shane Douglas was doing what was it was the hardcore homecoming and doing his own independent e c w revival brand that kind of lasted actually a few shows independently <hes> and there's a couple of D._v._D.'s.

"Just you have to be really careful about money. <hes> I think always write. Thank you cards. After you have a big meeting. Show your subjects the movie even though makes you want to Gouge your eyeballs out to show completed movies and this is what this is not. You don't want the feedback you're just saying. Here's it's coming right editorial involvement whatsoever win. It's locked in the can you show prior to premier date in. What does that get you do for you for them? It's really about them not feeling confronted with the fact put that it's on each beyond people are commenting on before that they've had a chance to process it really about respect people giving you their time and you allowing them time to process it. There's a brutal scene <hes> I was thinking about this watching it. <hes> where <hes> Conrad Roy's father acknowledged that he'd beat him and you've just shown footage of pictures of his face <hes> from I guess the police report <hes> and he talks about what he says. This is a little embarrassing and sort of tries to defend it but I can't imagine being on first of all sitting being on camera for that question in answering not walking away and then knowing that's going to be shown what was the reaction when he saw that so asking Conrad's Dad why in the circumstances that led up to his sons concussion precluded him from being able to see the film before it aired. I showed Lynn Roy his mother that did not have a history of violence with her son. What do you mean precluded? He just didn't show it to him I didn't I didn't you know I feel like I owed a debt of gratitude to his mother but I did not do the same thing for his father. His father didn't respond to my email when we when I tried reaching out to him I mean I'm assuming that by the time he got to the Roy's and everyone involved a lot of exposed to media a lot of them had thought about whether or not they wanNA participate participate in a thing like this they might have thoughts about whether or not they want to get paid <hes>. Do you WANNA deal with subjects who are sort of aware of what's happening to them. Aware of what your role is that you're GonNa make a movie that they may not have control over or they will have have control over or would you rather have them come to really fresh. It's a great question like for Mommy Dearest. No one was trying to ask them questions. I was just like I was this girl and it was like the grandparents talking about D._v._D.'s ashes in the toilet and like I don't know there's so much it was so much easier. 'cause there was a bit of humor and like with the Conrad Roy family there were so harangued by the media and so sought after that just a phalanx of cameras out to national and they retreated league celebrities like chased after contacted. I really felt like a cultural vulture being at that courthouse and dragging all my camera kit and sweating and just being like you know I can. I'm going to make a long form documentary and we don't care kids kids dead like you know I think that they they ended up participating but I think it was through a ton of careful contemplation because you look at my trajectory as a filmmaker..
