And that was your final last night, Little Harry Down the stretch. Final couple minutes. 70 69 bear cats win at Tulsa for more on that and more on the U. C. Bear cats. Welcome in one of those two voices. You just heard he teams up with Dan. Order that you see broadcast. That would be Terry Nelson. How are you? Anybody going? Good. I'm I'm well, good to hear voices before he backtracked the last night. I guess I need to ask me your reaction to the news of the day David did Julius has posted on Instagram. He's been dealing with mental issues from covert and the impact on his daily life over the last 78 months, and he has chosen to opt out your thoughts on the news. Whatever help he needs. He needs to get it. Um fans can be sold. Temperamental and not understanding of What athletes are going through? Yes, they're all going through it at this time and T here and read some of the comments that people are making, you know, First of all, they all have to They're living in isolated life. You know they there's no team functions that they're doing. They're getting, uh, Colbert testing on a daily basis. You don't know what's going on in the family situation with the dynamic that happened, but Kobe affects people differently. You know, I haven't Fourth of July. I still don't have 1% lung capacity. I get tired a lot. Um, so how it effects anathema eat, you say, Oh, he went to the covert protocols He's cleared to play. He's supposed to be normal. People are upset because they thinking he's quitting on the team. And what a fan's perspective. No, he's quitting on the team that you're cheering for that back their perspective, only worried about the kids. They're nothing more about the other teammates. We're worried about. This is my team. Everybody, you know, opting out. It's weak. It's you know all these things that they're calling these athletes and it's so unfair because this is not a playing time issues. He's a starting point dog. It's not an issue where he's getting into with the coaches, he says. This is the dream situation He didn't didn't want envision himself playing anywhere else after he left Michigan, so it's one of those things where When he says it's a mental health issue. Mental health is not. It's not a physical tangible thing. It's something that is created in the prison of your mind that keeps you from Doing the things that you do on a normal basis with consistency. It constantly hunt you is that when you sleep, it's when you awake is when you're running. It's when you're productive is when you're unproductive. It's so many variables that go along with how covert effects Somewhat and just because someone else got Colbert and they got over it. You see people say Well, I had. It's just nothing but, you know, I had hot cold flashes a lost taste and smell. But you have a lot of people love young capacity. You have people that have long term mental health effects. We don't know what's going on, however. We do have one of the best health systems in all of the country, especially all of Ohio. So he's going to be taken care of. He doesn't want to leave. He just wants to get right. Very well, said Terry Nelson, checking in tonight on sports talk Most thought after losing by 38 on Sunday, we'd learn a great deal about this team and how they responded last night. What did you learn about this team last night? They're resilient. You know, when you start in light of all of the young college team that are just getting just blown out of the water by, you know, hungry, experienced teams. You know, this may be the year of the mid major. The mid major. Yes, we got him Good. Hi, Major, that air veteran teams, But you're gonna have some mid majors that get into the NC attorney. And because there are veteran team they're gonna make a strong run. When you talk about getting beat by 38 points, there was nothing that they could go back and look on the film and say we did this good actor. You know the 1918 score early in the first half. They just told the snowballs, but to have them respond to have them play with passion to go on the road and You know, the only people in the gym that are clapping for you is the people on your bench and to have those guys rally around, you know, getting up going down, getting backed up again going down. That the you know easily in the back of their minds. They consider here we go again. But this team all season long take away the Georgia game. Take away. This game in Houston has been so resilient. And John Brennan doesn't get enough credit for trying to keep these guys in a mental state of just staying in the moment. It's so easy to get out of the moment and think. Oh, man, they lost by 38. John needs to go. You know all these everybody, You know, the fans are only what have you done for me lately, and nobody looks at the big picture. Keith Williams. Maybe he didn't shoot it officially last night 9 to 24. But he stayed on the floor played 36 minutes gave him 24 boys gave him six assist. He was big. Hey, Woz. There's two things that stop keep from being just the player of the game and every game he's and because he's athletically going to be more talented, more gifted athletically than anybody on the floor and conference on American Athletic Conference..

"I'm there you go. does your head go through the top. Like tentacle sucker. Yeah it's basically. Let me see if i can burn costume. It's pretty it's pretty much exactly like laverne costume and you got little armholes here. Actually you know it at your head wife that on. Oh okay so it doesn't go through. The top ten was mistaken. Now it goes through the so but is there a hood that you can actually look like a technical. This is not a bomb. I mean it's hard to tell from these screenshots whether or not there's a hood it looks like there might be but those might also be close ups of the sleeves. I appreciate that they that they went through the trouble. Ya also the the suction cups are not. They're just a print they're not like razia sections of fabric for those of you who don't know what it looks like at home. It looks like the costume. That mickey mouse wears fantasia. Like the day of the tentacle costume is just like a bag. That you wear over your body and i do think it has a hood. Okay now to order to find out if any listeners and germany wanna sink a few bucks and do it feel free report back. Do you have any more jobs. More reviews heather. I mean they're all in the same vein they're all like glowing and delighted reviews of of some people's favourite game of all time rock. There's like a guy who's like. This was my favorite game. When i was nine and i just played the remastered version and started crying. Like i mean yeah. The bunch of fucking shits filling out these reviews. These positive reviews. You should say you should have to begin. I was born in nineteen blank. And then you pick a seven or a for the first edge and then you can fill it whatever the there is. I'm not gonna read it here it because it's lengthy but but bob macky past guests to the show of the talking simpson's podcast wrote a review of of the remastered for us gamer. And it's a really good review and he talks a lot about the improvements and just how it's such likely heather was saying earlier about how this is such a exactly what you remember but just upgraded and i'll i'll post that on social media but right now it's time for the question block all right. This one's from at heavy w tr on twitter and they write this sort of a two part question. Are there any must plays that. You just could not get into and and or are there. What are your favorite games from a studio. That has no longer in business. Okay we got so. These are two separate questions questions. Yeah answering whichever one you want. I guess i will say that. And i'm curious what how you'll respond to this heather. I've tried to get into fighting games a lot. And they can really only get into the more accessible ones your street fighters or moral versus. Capcom hs your. You won't even classified as a fighting game. But you're smash brothers when i tried to play. I really tried to get into virtual fighter. I made an honest effort to get into virtual fighter. I like was like looking at move sets. I was trying to lick. Learn one character. And i was just a put enough hours in this is not for me whether or not they can even get good at it. I'm just not really enjoying myself. So i guess that's my answer. Is the virtual fighter franchise for the first one. I had ever for fighter. I did fuck with virtual fighter. And i did enjoy it but you preface that by saying you know i can only get into the accessible fighting games and then you named to extraordinary fighting games like you name street fighter and marvel capcom and those are bowl right. Excellent excellent games so i also approachable that that would be my interpretation. Someone who's not as an enthusiast for the genre. But i'm sorry please continue but i feel like virtual fighter is a matter of like like tone like you if the the moves have. I don't know there are a little bit more precise. They're a little bit more exacting in terms of like. Oh like i can't just with street fighter. Even when it was converted into three d the game was behaving with frame drops as if it were a to d game whereas virtual fighter you really do need to have the leg connect with the head in order for a hit to register etc etc. Some of the fighters are really slow. I don't think that's i mean like that's okay man like you don't you don't need to be in a virtual fighter. That's i'm i'm fine with that. That's like you're like. Hey i keep going to french restaurants. And i try fog run. I don't really like it. Okay that's fine. no that's not for everybody it is. It is the fancy food for for fancy people much. Like virtual fighter did where people also tortured to.

"These porta potties. That have been turned into time machines and you have like in the first game. You have multiple player characters like a tiny place so sorry. But there's like there's so much weirdness in this maniac mansion the first game you go to the house of this mad scientist dr fred edison. This game was a massive hit for some reason. They turned it into a television show in canada. Yeah where you're just following the edison families one of the guys was the star and dr fred invented these tentacles and he also invented this chronic john system but he for whatever reason was a character that mike got sort of big in canada and other poisons. Yeah and and that whole family is back like. It's it stock fred. It's nurse edna. And then it's it's weird ed and then there's also dead cousin ned who's a mummy who appears in all three realities and so you end up going to these three different timelines three player characters. It's it's yes the tentacle gets smart. He's going to take over the world and there's no way to beat him and that's why they have to like in the only way to beat them is to go back in time to before the sludge gets into the river and then you can stop the tentacle from drinking the sludge. Everyone will be saved but The porta potty. Time machines aren't great and so they send these three kids back to nick. Take it away. They're sending them back to trying to send the previous day. Thank you heather. But then that that fucks up and they get set to hoagie. Get set two hundred years in the past two colonial times Laverne who's a who's like a spazzy medical student get set two hundred years in the future to win tentacles rule the earth and humans are pets and bernard stays in the present and so it the puzzle solving is largely finding ways that objects from different realities will interact with each other. Either that you're going to flush object through time and send it to you. Know one of your roommates in a different time or you are going to in one. Case for instance take a bottle of wine put in a time capsule so when you open it up in four hundred years. It's about la vinegar. Which is neither. You need to solve a different puzzle and this is like in service of a lot of great like time travel type jokes where when laverne travels forward into the future. She gets caught in a tree which is a come quad tree that has been growing outside the house for a really time and when he goes back into the past george washington. Is there so hoagie has to paint. The com- quads in the tree. Read so they look like cherries. So george washington will think that it's a cherry tree which he wants to prove how good he is cutting them down. So he cuts down the tree in the past so laverne can fall out of it. Four hundred years in the future. Yeah which is which is great. And and i i actually. That's my favorite. Part of the game is the ones that use time the long stretch of time of your freezing the hamster you defrosting in two hundred years. You have a sweater that you have to get make really small so you put like a shitload of quarters and and you have it dry for two hundred years favor one. This one laverne needs a tentacle costume in the future. She needs to disguise herself as a technical so hoagie in the past he meets betsy ross and he gives her plans for a new american flag. That is this just a technical 'cause tube so we're supposed to believe the because of what hoagie data the past. The american flag for four hundred years has just been they three dimensional tentacle costs over your head. So all averred has to do with the future is take. What is the american flag at both on and that comes from an anatomical chart of a tentacle that lebron takes and fleshes back four hundred years. Now yeah. I love that puzzle and that has like a really good button at the end of the game. It's i think this is like. I don't know i really like that stuff. And i think it's a i think as these games can always by their nature as hayes was saying. Be a little obtuse. But i think this one is fairer than a lotta these games. I think i think a lot of them. Have i think a lot of these puzzles like that. One the constitution one where you have to get a You have a flyer from the present that says george says get yourself a new vacuum and put it in your basement. George says everyone should have a vacuum cleaner in their basement. An advertisement for georgia's vacuum cleaner company. Or something yeah. It's a flyer and so you take that in the past and you put in the suggestion box for the constitution that gets written into the constitution and as a result the vacuum cleaner is present in the basement in the future like the constitution constitution. I dunno i like i. It's a good puzzle and it's like you can intuit that you don't have to just like i guess i will say that the puzzles in this one especially when compared to like a dog shit game we've played on this podcast twilight zone like that. Same sort of like adventure game aesthetic. The puzzles in this one much much much better. You can into it. Oh i've got wine and i. I know that if you leave a bottle of wine open on your like kitchen counter for a long time it kind of taste like vinegar so you can intuit those things. But i would love matt to play some selections of because the packaging for this is not like. It's it's it's off putting the voice acting is it's it's grading and it feels a little bit to me like today you would just do like it would be like the voice actors from power puff girls and it would okay all right. It sounds like a cartoon. This sounds like people making fun of the way that cartoons.

"These girls who i liked were call called me and i was playing this game and i kept playing it as they were talking and then it was like them. What was happening in the game. But i was too embarrassed to say it was a game so i told them i was watching a movie called day of the tentacle ha and then so. They went to blockbuster to try to rent day of the tentacle they guy like looked it up and it was like yeah. It's not in here. Like i don't like it was just like a lie. They never you know like i. I don't even know why told that. Lie and then it. It just didn't really pay off at all for them. So this is also associated with childhood lying for me a lot about all these lucas games. What i would do is. I would have friends over to play these games. And i would pretend that i had never played them before. So this is something very also very frustrating about these games. Heather is like there are a lot of moments that are like. There's no reasonable way that especially a kid could be expected to figure out what you are supposed to do next. It's like a punch line for example. Your there's a moment where you're supposed to induce a thunderstorm to get lightning to strike. Ben franklin's kite so you can charge your super battery but the way that you do that. Is you have to get a bucket and a brush and soapy water and wash your carriage. The joke being like you know as soon as you wash your car. There's gotta be a thunderstorm. Yes i have a actually a clip of walk through here that that that is about this section and this i'll read it so that the audience gets an idea of the kind of video game. This is yeah. You can no control hoagie. So get the patent application had down to the left past the carriage. Open the mailbox and get the letter inside. It opened the door to the end and go inside. Open the door to the main hall and enter men head through the swinging door. Pick the oil and spaghetti on the pantry head through the door to write pickup the bucket on the ground and then open the cabinet and get the brush. Use the bucket with the water pump to fill it with water. Head back to the entrance and go back up the stairs. Enter the room on the left us washington's head and use the cord to get the made to appear like that's the yes the kind of game this is which is part of why it's it's i i can't i'm trying so hard. Ap's i think this game would be. It would be very tough to play if you if you didn't have like a you know if you were familiar with the genre and its conventions in understanding that you're kind of trying to reverse engineer. The designer would have designed this puzzle. I just a joke. It's just the service of a joke. You have to get all that stuff to wash the carriage to make a thunderstorm happen and like it might be eluded into some somewhere deepen the dialogue with one character. But the only way i ever found out was through looking at those guys so it was just in the very early days of being able to go to game ethic game if accused dot com like the asi are at the top and like Find those things out. But i would pretend playing these games you know. Obviously it's just like the two of you sitting in front of a computer like deciding what to do. But i would pretend that. I hadn't played the games before and i was just figuring this stuff out myself. I remember feeling call all the time or were they were like you play this before. Like how would you put that together. There's no way that you would just naturally include to do them like. I don't think i heard one school talking about it. Of course no one else has ever heard of this game but they all work like that all every single one that that was talking about. They're all that level of like convoluted. Yes i do think that because this one is aping like a looney tunes cartoon. I will give it that more than like in a you know. Gabriel knight sins of the father like a sierra game. That's supposed to be a little bit like serious and straightforward but it's still got like just completely wacky solutions to puzzles like i'll see because this is based in a cartoon reality like it's i forgive that stuff more And i think that's part of like part of just accepting the sort of genre i. I wanted to say that the that the the way this this narrative is split up is so you've got you've got these two characters a bunch of characters returning from the previous game for maniac mansion but the two tentacles purple tentacle who's the bad tennakoon green tentacle who's the good tentacle purple tentacle drinks. This mutagen from a toxic water pipe and grows arms and become super intelligent ninety arms. Just like little no. Yeah that he's like with this now. I can take over the world which is very like very pinky and the brain thing that somehow one hundred percent. Exactly the same time yeah. It was ninety three that those were both the the idea of weeks. He mcgregor taking over the world for whatever. Reason was like some some funny shit and response to the democrats getting into office. You know what i'm saying. days ago. The kids programming people were like we gotta get together the do something capital slick willy. Exactly so so. What happens is that you have these the krono john's which are these porta potties. That have been turned into time machines and you have like in the first game. You have multiple player characters like a tiny place so sorry. But there's like there's so much weirdness in this maniac mansion the first game you go to the house of this mad scientist dr fred edison. This game.

"By. This is why this is where i don't have. Friends is because when i do something nice i squeeze it out of them. I just clash totally to expect a mention on your video game podcast. Thank you the so. So i got into monkey illinois. Grandfather ever actually played it. I think he had other games around that. I think like he was just a computer enthusiast and was like all have games and kids come to visit. They'll have games. They can play on my computer but this was one of the. This sim city where i had pirated copies that he gave me. And we're so my early games and a secret. Monkey island was my favorite. Because i think it hit me. I and that whole island series like mcgowan to curse of monkey element you mentioned. The animation is just like so good in that. And and i. I want to ask about salmon max because salmon. Max is one of the franchises. That i also played san max kid. I really liked that game. But they had something of a of a comeback. The telltale games which was founded by lucas arts developers made salmon. Max save the world. Did you ever mess around with that at all. I got into it a little bit. And i think i started and just a little voice in my head was just like you know what just leave it where it is you don't like and you know. I understand the enthusiast. I was really excited. When i heard it was coming out. But i'm like you know twenty six or something at that point and it's just like what i did instead was by an old pc. That i could play these games on my my games. I bought the old the package again. I just wanted to recreate the exact same experience. And that's why. I was actually a little scared about playing the remastered day of the tentacle. I thought it was going to be kind of like what they did. With telltale where the characters look different and they like move differently and some like bernard has like a big juicy tushar.
Clinicians fear NFL's concussion settlement program protocols discriminate against Black players
"Tonight. Just days away for football's biggest night. The abc news investigation shining a different light on the nfl to black former players. Showing the league accusing it of racial discrimination in concussion related settlements revealing stunning allegations in their first tv interview. Here's abc's ryan smith. Stop your yes we all did. This is the morning routine for former. Nfl defensive lineman keven. Henry crippled with pain from his time playing in the league. My wife used a waste meal. Then when i wake up Usually throbbing so she'll she'll massage me for about an hour. Sometimes i stumble war. I made them fall. Henry and his wife pam say life has become a constant struggle marked by depression. Memory loss and bellsa bangor all symptoms associated with dementia related illnesses which henry believes stem from repeated blows to the head. Football doesn't give you an expiration date.

Did you feel like you had some sort of impairment from playing football. I'm not myself. i'm not myself. Henry was further devastated after his claim for compensation to the nfl's settlement program was denied it now for the first time on camera with abc news henry and another former player nausea davenport are talking about their lawsuit accusing the nfl of avoiding paying head injury claims based on a formula that discriminates on race that formula assumes that black players started a lower cognitive level than white players. Critics say the practice widely known as race. Norman makes it harder for black players to qualify for compensation the league caused the lawsuit entirely misguided. I just want to be looked at the same way as a white guy. We bust chops together bro. It wasn't white or black team. We lost together. We won together for henry growing up in small town mississippi. The nfl was his ticket to success after attending mississippi state university he was drafted in nineteen ninety-three by the pittsburgh. What was it like the play in the nfl. It was hard man. i ain't even lie. It was easier to get there in the state there. You have to do whatever it takes to stay healthy and still nephew henry in there for the injured ray sales. That's a good clean. Henry played for eight seasons making fourteen career sacks even going on to play in super bowl thirty but at the age of thirty three. The bright lights of the stadium and the roar of the crowds came to an end and like many other former players. Henry struggled in retirement. Battling what he suspected where the long term effects of the concussions. He sustained on the field. I get a lot of headaches every morning. I have a headache is just a number of things. Man that that that A player goes through man after football. Football this is not fun is not fun. Who live by it's horrible. It's just sad to see. Is his breaks my heart. It really does unable to work and concerned about his family's financial future henry and his wife turn to the landmark two thousand thirteen nfl concussion settlement program which paid eligible former nfl players suffering from the lingering effects of multiple head injuries. In two thousand seventeen. Henry went into get a battery of tests to measure as cognitive functioning assessing language learning. And memory this doctor said that he believes there there is something going on and he was gonna turn report in. He was saying in so many words like his life. There is something wrong. A doctor determined that henry was suffering from cognitive decline consistent with mild dementia. And it's part of the process submitted a claim to a settlement administrator. What was the result of the claiming file. I was denied. The administrator rejected. Henry's claim questioning whether his performance on the tests were valid and asserting that the doctor quote used inappropriate norms. Henry's docker did not use that race warming adjustment. we're to function in our daily lives like normal human beings without any disruption and not become conceited. For two years later henry says with health worsening. He went in for another evaluation with a neuropsychologist. This clinician used that. Nfl recommended formula. That took into account among other things. Henry's and this time. The neuropsychologist found that henry didn't qualify at all. Every time the ball snapped is a car crash for me.

Lisa Raymond on setting her own agenda
"All right lisa. Raymond welcomed tennis dot com podcasts. It is awesome to have you. Thank you guys for having me so much. Where in the world are you. Let's let's start with that hotel room. I know that shocking to people but Actually in baton rouge louisiana right now been working for the past year with alec and My old coach Andy brandy is the head men's tennis co-chair lsu and kinda long story but We're actually bringing them on To be part of the team so we're here Doing some training with him and he he's going to be a part of our team moving forward and It's been awesome. Been here almost two weeks now. And it's going to be one of our training bases now rally which is going to be great so So yeah that's why we're in baton rouge andy brandy the andy brandy as andy brandy.

It just isn't working or at works and andy. I hit it off from the time. I was seventeen when i went to school. Went to florida and You know if there's one person in my career that i have. I owe pretty much everything to because of that foundation he built. It's handy so yeah absolutely. Oh that's amazing. You don't really hear very often. I guess sometimes you can hear about a player that can just have a very. That's i mean that's a lifelong relationship. Lifelong yeah but yeah. I mean he Again i mean he. I coached he coach me throughout my pro career on and off the end And then like. I said i mean he's family. I mean him and his wife and his son i mean we were just over there the other night for dinner and and hadn't seen them forever haven't seen as whites and it was just like yesterday. I mean they're just near and dear and Just really really special people. Were you always gonna jump into coaching. I think he finished up in two thousand fifteen th us open with madison keys as your last partner and then she would have been your first pupil in a way is that was that. Always the plan when you're playing. No it wasn't at all. I'm just kinda just happened Very good friends with lindsay davenport. And so lindsey was coaching mass in at the time and lindsay still playing two thousand fifteen and lindsay was just like look. I just. I can't really do this fulltime. Would you be interested in of coming on You know traveling with her some weeks if it didn't interfere with your doubles. Maybe you guys could place in doubles. It'd be great for her. And and so i was like yeah sure like you know it just. I hadn't really ever really thought about it. And then i did. I did think about it. And and i loved it. I love I love coaching. And i love just kind of Being part of a team in our party why. I probably did so well in doubles because i love being out there with somebody but So for me it was like a great segue from retiring. Because i literally went from the us open finishing my last match to five days later. I was in quebec city with madison. So it was like. I never really like had to put my rackets down and sit and be like oh my god. I'm retired here so see us do. That's kind of how just kinda leads dad. And and then. I took a break from coaching. And then allie. Approach me with this opportunity and jumped out. I mean least technically. You're not retired. You played last year. This is true this is true. This is true. Technically twenty thirteen was not your last match to good point and i plan on the i. I've got a few goals out there. That i still wanna possibly achieve so i So yeah so.

I know that shocking to people but Actually in baton rouge louisiana right now been working for the past year with alec and My old coach Andy brandy is the head men's tennis co-chair lsu and kinda long story but We're actually bringing them on To be part of the team so we're here Doing some training with him and he he's going to be a part of our team moving forward and It's been awesome. Been here almost two weeks now. And it's going to be one of our training bases now rally which is going to be great so So yeah that's why we're in baton rouge andy brandy the andy brandy as andy brandy. Yes very familiar to me names. There's only one. Andy randy will ever be one handy brandy so you love them or hate him and i've always loved them. It's true you either have these. Andy it's either. You have this unreal relationship with andy or you. Don't you know and he'd be the first to admit that he. Andy me the iranian. You know he'd be the first to be like you know. It just isn't working or at works and andy. I hit it off from the time. I was seventeen when i went to school. Went to florida and You know if there's one person in my career that i have. I owe pretty much everything to because of that foundation he built. It's handy so yeah absolutely. Oh that's amazing. You don't really hear very often. I guess sometimes you can hear about a player that can just have a very. That's i mean that's a lifelong relationship. Lifelong yeah but yeah. I mean he Again i mean he. I coached he coach me throughout my pro career on and off the end And then like. I said i mean he's family. I mean him and his wife and his son i mean we were just over there the other night for dinner and and hadn't seen them forever haven't seen as whites and it was just like yesterday. I mean they're just near and dear and Just really really special people. Were you always gonna jump into coaching. I think he finished up in two thousand fifteen th us open with madison keys as your last partner and then she would have been your first pupil in a way is that was that. Always the plan when you're playing. No it wasn't at all. I'm just kinda just happened Very good friends with lindsay davenport. And so lindsey was coaching mass in at the time and lindsay still playing two thousand fifteen and lindsay was just like look. I just. I can't really do this fulltime. Would you be interested in of coming on You know traveling with her some weeks if it didn't interfere with your doubles. Maybe you guys could place in doubles. It'd be great for her. And and so i was like yeah sure like you know it just. I hadn't really ever really thought about it. And then i did. I did think about it. And and i loved it. I love I love coaching. And i love just kind of Being part of a team in our party why. I probably did so well in doubles because i love being out there with somebody but So for me it was like a great segue from retiring. Because i literally went from the us open finishing my last match to five days later. I was in quebec city with madison. So it was like. I never really like had to put my rackets down and sit and be like oh my god. I'm retired here so see us do. That's kind of how just kinda leads dad. And and then. I took a break from coaching. And then allie. Approach me with this opportunity and jumped out. I mean least technically. You're not retired. You played last year. This is true this is true. This is true. Technically twenty thirteen was not your last match to good point and i plan on the i. I've got a few goals out there. That i still wanna possibly achieve so i So yeah so. I just to get in better shape. Get my butt out there and hitting a little bit more and But yeah no. I'm not totally retired. I guess you could say
NFL Playoff Futures: Who will make the 2020 post-season?
"Wanted to talk about playoff odds and not not. Just who's gonna make the playoffs but also the nfc the nfc's a really weird place. The saints are plus three fifty to win this to in the nfc. None of us like the saints even are as good as they looked last week against tampa. There's still this unease with because breezes arm strength. It just makes me nervous. I'm starting to talk myself into the saints. Okay yeah okay so a couple of things number one. Smart people in july and august said wait until brady gets half a season under his belt and they're going to get better you know. No one cares. More about the details. And tom brady doesn't have a training. Camp does not as doesn't put pads on till till august fifteenth. He's gonna get better and better and better and so week one when when the bucks and the saints played. I threw that out. I said this this doesn't matter bracing to get better and better better. This was the closing the gap game for me. And then i didn't see that and obviously they were there whipped everywhere you know. Ali maher pet being out was a big thing with with with with people who started the game. But i think that this was bigger than than alley marquette quite frankly okay The the saints were able to get a four man rush the entire game. Are they able to pressure brady on half of his dropbacks when they had a four man rush. That's really good Since marcus davenport's come back in week five had the most pressures in football pressuring and football There's just something there. The problem at the beginning of the year was that lattimore and marcus williams were bad and those are two pretty good players and i think that you know a good pass rush. Ken console that those guys can get better and so with with brees. Listen there are. There are problems with the fact. You can't throw down the field. The offensive line is not as good as it has been in years hospice and matter with brees because he gets rid of the ball and a second. It's like peyton manning he doesn't need you know the the the best offensive line in the world and then lattimore who we were kind of dunking on because at one point he was giving almost a perfect passer rating. He owns mike evans. He own them. He is not given up a reception. Mike evans the last three games. They've played and so when if those guys play in the playoffs again. There's that match up. So i i don't. I'm feeling better about the saints. Now that i was two three weeks ago. Good coaching staff. I gary coaching staff. Yeah so the fear in this isn't just the saints but the fear is all right. What happens at their downtown in a playoff game. It's basically the lamar jackson corollary. How am i feeling down. Thirteen to three in the second quarter and they've just done a three and out. What were my emotions in that moment. That's my the saints because a breeze. I think that because they don't you don't think they're capable of a big play. Is that your fear if teams though like all right. They've got to air this out. They've got to quicken the pace and also it's amazing to me a cameras probably been the. Mvp think it's either him cook mahomes berry some order Okay i'm amazed at teams aren't just like all right. We're taking him out like bell. Check in his prime your. He got added as kids to the coaching staff and decided to throw a fight street. Drafts fail check All he would do me like chimeras not beating me. You can have everyone else on the saints. I'm not getting beat by that guy. I'm falling everywhere he goes. We're hitting him constantly. He's not beating me. Why don't teams do that with them. I don't get it okay. So first of all they have a of weapons. Thanks so she when michael. Thomas is healthy There's a lot they can do their you know. I think peter king early breakdown. His column this week about there was a play where the bucks dropped eight men into coverage and it was a weird play. They had their fullbacks put out wide and brees hit a random tight end. Adam traveling for a touchdown even throwing into eight men like that. There's just something their breezes still really really good so. I think it's a bit simplistic to say. Just take away kamara because they can do other stuff And they can. They can change their game plan so

Blue Origin breaks the record for rocket recycling New Shepard launch
"What an exciting morning it was for the blue origin, rocket scientists and Kent as they watched their 13th, successful launch take place from a site in Texas. But 20 year old blue Origin still has a reached orbit or put a human in space. Christian Davenport is covering this for the Washington Post and spoke with compost. Taylor Vance ice. What was the purpose of today's launch? So the purpose of today's launch was to launch their new shepherd vehicle? It was a test launch. It goes not to orbit as you mentioned, but it goes sub orbital goes straight up and straight down. Ultimately, this is a vehicle that's going to fly paying customers. The space. We would have thought that would have happened by now. But there have been some delays and setbacks and and, of course, the Corona virus pandemic, But while it didn't have any people on board, it did have some payloads. Including some research that was placed outside of the booster that could be used to help the lunar lander that blue origin is developing for NASA in its quest to get back to the moon. That would help it land very precisely on the moon on so that experiment was on board. The new Shepherd for their Askew mentioned the 13th successful launch this
Blue Origin chalks up 13th successful test flight
"What an exciting morning it was for the blue origin rocket scientists in Kent as they watched their 13th successful launch Take place. It happened at a site in Texas. But as Christian Davenport reports in the Washington Post The 20 year old company. Blue Origin still hasn't reached orbit or put a human in space and Christian joins us on the coma News line. What was the purpose of today's launch? Yeah, thanks for having me. So the purpose of today's launch was to launch their new shepherd vehicle. It was a test launch. It goes not to orbit as you mentioned, but it goes sub orbital. It goes straight up and straight down. Ultimately, this is a vehicle that's going to fly paying customers to space. We would have thought that would have happened by now. But they're event, some delays and setbacks and and, of course, the Corona virus. Pandemic. But while it didn't have any people on board, it did have some payloads, including some research that was placed outside of the booster that could be used to help the lunar lander that blue origin is developing for NASA in its quest to get back to the moon that would help it land. Very precisely on the moon on so that experiment was on board. The new Shepherd for their Askew mentioned there's 13th successful launch this morning. Well, delays and pandemics aside as you write, Lord and kind of has a motto of keeping a slow pace. Why, though they lost a contract with the Pentagon not too long ago? Well, you're right. I mean, the motto is Jeff Bezos has said that they wanted to go step by step ferociously. But there's been some criticism of the company that they've been moving too slowly at a time. When you see companies like Space six, you know, which got the orbit relatively quickly. They're flying humans. They of their first Ah, flight of NASA astronaut in May and brought them back safely a couple months later. That you know what is taking blurred and so long and they hadn't flown their new Shepherd's vehicle since December, So there was sort of a 10 month gap there, But I will tell you and I've been down to Cape Canaveral in Florida. You drive by the manufacturing facility that blue origin is building there, and it's matches. It is absolutely mind blowing. And it shows you, Jeff says. This is the most important work he's doing is working space. You think this is going to be a big part of his legacy is dedicated Tio spending a billion dollars a year of his own money into it until while they're moving slowly and deliberately. You can't bet against them. And next year could be a big year and it feels like we say that a lot In states like, but we're looking ahead at flying people for the first time in New Shepherd, they said. Today they were maybe a couple of flights away from doing that, And then they also hope to launch their new Glenn vehicle. That's the Big rocket that would eventually go to orbit.

"This is the Thai restaurant table try and catch but he's here Sunday morning. Well with all covered probably means and all the the problems in Washington. Well, let's look to the skies and maybe we can settle down on on a little bit of a relaxation on that page. Where where is this morning is Peter Davenport the director of the National UFO Reporting Center and good morning Peter. How are you this morning? I'm doing well job. Thank you very much for the invitation to appear. It's always fun to appear with you. Even at this hour of the morning. Well, I I enjoy it very much and they've been so many sightings lately. Can you give us an update on what's going on with the UFO sightings and anything else you you know, you'd like to tell America may be happy to do that. There have been a lot of reports over the last six months or so, I think one month April of this year. We had we posted eleven thousand reports to our website for the month of April, but people are always traditionally focused on the volume of reports. What I'm looking at is director of the National UFO Reporting Center is the quality and seemingly significance of the reports because the quantity of reports can be caused by any number of things for example We've been getting a lot of reports of these so-called starlink satellites that pass overhead nose-to-tail. A lot of people are looking at them and thinking they're both of those. But in fact, they're just traditional satellites launched in proximity to one another but there have been a lot of really really am interesting reports one comes to mind in particular from the 17th of September Thursday night three weeks of just over three weeks ago a military flight crew an Air National Guard Texas Air National Guard flight crew was out on a night training flight in a uh-60 Black Hawk helicopter. And they landed after their training flight and they looked up in the sky above them and saw a cluster of up to a dozen eggs white lights streaking all over the sky maneuvering apparently relative to one another and I talked to the captain of that flight crew and he was dead. He was unsettled by what he had seen. It was quite a quite an experience. He said wow, and and any gut feeling of what's going on in life in in respects. I mean, is there a time period that you've been doing this for quite a while that you believe that the government for finally saved? Yeah. I'd like to think that the government is finally going to come clean on the subject, but I'm not convinced of it. It's so closely integrated with birth. Our National Defense that if they're in touch with aliens, they're certainly not going to let our potential adversaries know that fact. I understand that a lot of our life Knology in the last fifty years has come from unknown sources. That's the nicest way I could say. Yeah, I've heard similar reports, but I'm not in government. Of course there my my adversary uniting government. That's why you can tell the truth. Yeah, exactly. But I I'm convinced that the US government knows a great deal more about UFOs and Then they've LED on the celebrated article from December 16th, 2017. Almost three years ago seemed like yesterday when that article hit the brakes which is there an area that the most sightings are occurring is it the Northeast is at the southeast Southwest? Well, it's all over the We get reports from Canada Europe Asia Africa and elsewhere. So a lot of people frequently when they call a hotline the UFO Reporting hotline. They assure me that their little Community is a hotbed of activity almost. Everyone says that way you can you give our audience the hotline number or website. You have a hotline number has been the same for 46 years this month. It was set up in October of nineteen seventy-four. It's area code 206-772-3206. 702-3005. Well. Davenport, thank you for staying on top of this subject and one day we will the truth will come out and have a great weekend. Well, thank you and congratulations to you.

Trump Administration Moves To Expand Development In Alaska's Tongass National Forest
"Elected President Trump has rolled back or weakened more than 100 environmental regulations today, he added, yet another his administration moved to open up the nation's largest national forest for development on the new vase has the latest Judy, the Tongass National Forest in Alaska, has been called America's Amazon. It's one of the world's largest temperate rainforest absorbing carbon dioxide emitted by the United States. Which is why the plan to roll back protections is worrying environmentalists and climate scientists. Coral Davenport has been following the story for the New York Times and she joins me now, coral welcome back to the news hour. Let's just start with what exactly it is that the Trump administration is proposing changing what would the rollbacks entail? So the Trump Administration proposed has been working on this rule change for a couple of years. What's about to happen is that in the next 30 days, it's going to become final. What they're doing is lifting a Clinton era protection. It's called the roadless rule. It was a national national law that banned logging and road construction in most of the nation's forests. The Trump Administration is lifting the roadless rule in seven million acres of the 16 million acre Tongass National Forest. So that is a huge amount of Pretty much pristine wilderness, including about 160,000 acres of virgin old growth forest that would now be open to logging construction road development. The

Lindsay Davenport and the US Open
"What's happening? Interesting year I'd say. Let's make sense out of tennis in. Late. August two, thousand twenty. Where to begin here because usually we do these things and we well, you know in Cincinnati Sheila and the week before that, she looked why she's coming off a Wimbledon fourth-round. I got nothing here. I. Mean. We're I. Guess You know what? Let's. Let's start with. Let's start with social justice is a moving target but obviously, we're doing this on Thursday when there is no tennis at the tennis center mostly because of Naomi socket you let's just. I think Reagan outpaced by news you to. Top line outs. Just amazed at this young lady and how she has really. Grown into the person and the leader that she is I mean we saw her two years ago, John Win, a US Open under controversial circumstances almost crying when she got the trophy not the happy tears by the way we saw her not comfortable in the spotlight. And we've seen her truly in this past year really just blossom into this amazing leader and I, you know I think we thought that it was possible but I didn't think at this young age in her early twenties that she would be the type of player person who would be leading our sport and it's amazing to see. We haven't had player willing to sacrifice really willing to. Do whatever necessary for the greater good and look past. Oh by tennis or my match or anything else put all of that ahead to make a bigger impact in it's amazing. I. Mean Honestly yesterday as all these stories kept coming through I was getting the chills and then she was just amazing just doesn't this is important and you know what happened. It forced that forced it allowed me to bring it up with my young kid something that maybe that I don't know what would have happened I'm talking to a six year old about why this is going on in the world and a lot of that is because of nine soccer. I think too that she had a lot of people within tennis scrambling. And someone said to me, I do radio shows lead said, well, isn't she the highest paid female athlete and Michael Do? That is like, yeah, all the more reason for her not to do like since when does that cut your way of anything that makes it all the more impressive that many business relationships that she needs to keep in mind I Did you have any insight what brought this on mean you know there's she gives it here. She's self identified. There's boyfriend there's yolks he was in Minneapolis. You any insight as to what? Spurred us. Not. Really you know I was fascinated during the pandemic lockdown about hearing in. About her going to Minnesota and being willing. To take such a strong stand honestly during a pandemic and we have so many crazy things going on right now and I was I remember thinking wow, that is really remarkable from her. And then when this all came about. You know my first reaction was well, I can't believe it, and then about five minutes later I'm like, yeah good for her and you know the the support of everybody in the tennis world from what I've seen so far at least on social media and other platforms, it's remarkable and I think that everybody knows. Now I mean we've had players in the seventies, lead us and be willing to sacrifice, and be will link to walk away and willing to fight for the greater. Good. A lot of that kind of went away and there was. All of a sudden, you get a player again that's like, nope, this is way more important than my tennis or anything else. I think that she she had the respect of everyone the tennis world she's now earned it from you know other people around the world. And all this is in the context of a major seventy, two hours away and nobody's going anywhere. Everybody's going. You've thought like give it was going to fly to a different destination I mean she's doing this when everybody is in. Lockdown Where are you? If there's a continuum here? We have this among our colleagues. Some people say, this is not this is reckless come back in twenty twenty one and other people say shows got to go on we don't even need. This bubble where are you sort of in the? Spectrum. You know when I first heard about these kind of plans these in I think it was about may of us Ta's maybe thinking about doing it in a bubble and I remember going wow, that's crazy. I can't believe that you've got all these people find him from all over the world. It's not as simple as everyone based in the states and figuring this out then each step of the way, everything nope this is going to be fine players can fly in from overseas. This is what we have organized is now hearing from players that are in this bubble for like the last two weeks hearing from people that are playing in the Cincinnati. Tournament in New York If, I were current player and I was experiencing that I don't think I'd play outside bubble now. They're talking about you know Rome minute robes out some kind of paper that going over their rules where they strongly the players don't go out to eat. Yes. That should be a rule I mean that's the kind of the behavior that could really bring down tournaments I mean unfortunately, if you WANNA play, you're going to have to really kind of be in a bubble and. You WanNa make sure everyone else around you is also though in a bubble so you don't pick it up from them or from their coach from their hidden partner from their trainer. So I think this this tournament can these tournaments continue to go through without anything crazy happening with no really positive results in the virus not spreading and then the US being able to contain it. I don't see how you don't. I. Don't see how you can play not in a bubble for the rest of of this pandemic. That's a real real reversal. I, mean it used to be I can't the USDA's being so strict and these these guidelines are oppressive. You're saying the opposite you're saying you go to Europe and these players are going to say, wait a second why are their fans walking around the grounds? That would be me and I'm obviously the eat everyone I mean we saw hal help scared to go into a bubble. So everybody has their own their own comfort level. If it were me I would not feel comfortable playing a tournament where I know that everyone could have gone out to dinner or could have gone to a nightclub and then be within six feet of me. The next day that is me so we'll see I mean in Europe, the cases went down it sounds like they're starting to pick up. Again, this virus is not going anywhere anytime soon. So to think that their past it or it's not going to happen, you can't have that mindset. You have to have the mindset if we're organizing something that it's around, how do we get? Away with not having it get into our atmosphere. It's it's a bubble life unfortunately.

He stopped doing he lost he lost his next match. Didn't he off to the public wrapping and definitely things improved on the public wrapping front after then and I agree with you I thought he'd just quietly put that to bed and identified it as one of those silly things you do as a teenager that people forgive because you know fully formed. Adult yet although if you if you just if he's enjoyed it one. Oh. Yes sure. But it just doesn't make it public to inflict on everything has a right to do it and we have a right yeah. Say That we think it's terrible. Absolutely. Absolutely I, support his right to do it and very much a right to say. WHO The final couple of things knee The New York Times has done a Chris clarice done a sit down interview with Novak Djokovic the I. Really, in depth commentary, we've heard from him since the address tool fiasco. What we're thoughts of that interview I mean you can read it on the New York Times and make your own mind up at anyone anyone thoughts. I would say it's probably pretty much what I would have expected based on. Little drips of. Response that I've had from Jackovitch in in other interviews in Serbia that have been translated and the gist of that being that yes he accepts that it didn't go exactly as it should have done and didn't do exactly. Right. And that he's very sorry for the. People, unwell but that he's not about to take responsibility for the mall. And he used the word witch hunt. He said that if he had the situation again, he would do it again. I kind of think that what he probably means there is is that it came from his mind from a good place in that he was trying to do something positive and therefore, if he had the chance to do that again, he would do it again. Hopefully put different I. Hope he means would he would do it completely differently though given that it was an absolutely unmitigated. Disaster in terms of public relations and also potential health risks But I feel that he he sounded a bit out of touch to be quite honest with you of from my standpoint he he. I I would have liked him to have been rod than more forthcoming with understanding that it was just. It was just completely unsought through. So Badly Executed and he Yes. He wished he'd done something differently. he came across to me more resentful than remorseful about the at Rato and I agree with that phrase out of touch of his. His response both to that, and also his comments about his situation that the US Open. You know how he's he's obviously one of the players with the private house and that's fine. He's he has an that right and. He's he's in that position because of what he's done on a tennis court but his comments about oh I'm glad I'm here in that. Now in that hotel with the. Other. Players just doesn't doesn't come across as what he's been trying to tell people that he's looking out for the rest of the tool that he doesn't use doesn't need to comment on the I. Didn't think in that way just it doesn't come across particularly well, as you said, it comes across his out of touch. and. He's had a bad six months most of his own making and I think he's had. He's had an uneasy relationship at times with the media in the past and it hasn't actually affected. His own court performance at all I am interested whether. It's more on his mind over the next month can very much imagine a scenario where he continues on the path that he was on eighteen matches unbeaten at the start of the year and manages to block it all out. But it does the seem to me that there's a little bit more of attention as A. Little, bit of bitterness between him and the media at the moment and how he's being portrayed and I'm just interested to see over the next month whether that does feed into his tennis or not. My expectation would probably bring out the defined. Sit Him again because there has been the the characteristic from his frankly greatness over the years. But from being a very good tennis player in in an astonishing athlete, it's been the if you're against me. And that's usually a crowd I am going to take you down and invariably he does and I think creating that sorta siege mentality wants to his tennis any home whatsoever I I was just thinking back to you know it's it's only a little every year guy that we had Janka tip savage as a guest on the podcast who is explaining his frustration with the world's media in pointing specifically to the British media, which which apart and and fitting that Novak gets an unfair cracking the whip. This is all the other players and I do think sometimes we we got over the top and. He has sometimes been. criticized. Out of Kilter with what he's actually done a and. That's where some of his. Kind of victim. victimhood comes from in this situation I. think he builds them all into one whereas actually in this instance and and the last few months he's just he's there have been so many missteps that. Take them in isolation. There's no, there's no excusing it. Really. Yeah. I mean to touch not. He has not written or produced his own rap music so. It's not all bad. Should we hear from Lindsay Davenport? Please grace she she was fantastic and absolute joy Tutti and Somebody that doesn't. She doesn't seem to have much of an ego tool for three time grand slam champion and and somebody she's abundant. Now she has a little to work for for tennis channel. Somebody that is, is clearly it seemed to me unused to talking about herself which I find it extraordinary given what she's achieved in how kind of relatively recent it was. But she was she was a little taken aback at A. Interview was so much about about her and not just asking her views on. On current players and I found that really interesting and refreshing and I I e. Just to say as well before I leave you in the lovely company Lindsay. Davenport we have so much coming up for you. Of course, we is David Laura My K. presenter. We have to slams worth of guns love Daddy's the US Open, and of course, the French, open..

"davenport" Discussed on Drum History
"Bar vendors e and today I'm joined by my friend. Jeff Davenport to teach us about the history of Drum Tuning Jeff welcome to the show. Hi, there bought and thank you very much full invites me on the show. It's a real pleasure. We're we're across the ocean? I'm over in the UK S. Yeah. It's a pleasure to be here and be part of the drum history podcast. This is great. I've really enjoyed I mean we've gotten. We've gotten to know each other over the last couple of weeks Really enjoyed. Lockdown man were in lockdown I really enjoyed watching your. You have a video series. On Youtube or channel called drum tuning workshops in your on instagram. We can chat about that all at the end, but you. You do some really cool stuff. and I know that you. Work with ROB cooking. You, you do tuning. seminars would call it at the Chicago show. Historically so I'm excited to learn the history of this and one I just having the thought in my mind that sometimes I feel like. Like I almost quit to learning to drive where when I started to drive, you're like you're constantly checking the speedometer. You're constantly checking your Mir's. You're checking gas. What what did they? Everything is so like, but then the more you do it. You're just like us doing things without even thinking and I'm sure that's how you get to the level of tuning where you're just Bam. Bam, Bam, okay, sounds good, and yeah. The musical equivalent is knowing your instrument An always used to amaze me. When I was teaching drums drums for bit and when I when I was teaching, I said to you know the pupil thus meeting. They all have been lessons on June. Nine never had an lessons on genie. And they've been having lessons for four years five years. And I've never even thought about how to drive the car have. An Exactly I. Guess It's important. I mean we got to keep it in perspective you know. To play. You got to perform your plates music. And so I was like show that the tuning in the setting up in does come after in a learning a few groups and alone to stuff. But knowing your instruments. If you're guitarist. You chewed up before you have lessened. Occur, and apply set the raid if your socks off and still do the same and so on so forth. tiffany players. Obviously have to find the note of the drum going to to play for the performs piece. And so the drum kit wait we like. We're lasted pile really because. We've got the most complex like you say. The variables, we the most complex instrument we you could ever imagine. We have this situation where we can't say what we're doing. You know I always aim if there was a drumhead which could change color with tension. Weeping University miles ahead, but we don't have their hunt. See what we're doing, so we have to resort to enhance. We have to resort to our is our is. and kind of piece it together and. Teaching tuning is about sitting round. Table in the pub all account via or whatever it's about you know it's verbatim. It's you talk about it and you demonstrate it and. It's not in. It's not something really that can be done very accurately through the medium of the computer lab. We now have. Got Much better much better. Knowledge kicking about well. I think knowledge is what kind of gets rid of that taboo ness. So why don't you drop some knowledge on pool and? Perfect segue and and teach everyone really about the history of tuning, because I'm fascinated by it on others, gots involved and. Different elegant staying on I'm glad it's been a period of time. We have had time to think about it because I think we said this right at the beginning when we first to. The history of changing the history of the drum. And I have to be really careful because there are many many hundreds of people who At describing the history of the trump the me I mean I'm Denis. And we are all performers and and looking back over. Pretty much history of human beings, the drum being central to. The gatherings central to communities central to papal. Existing on this earth. I suddenly realized Oh my goodness, Amai my qualified his. I just thought well. You know let's just pick out a few things and look at in drums, being communication, equipment and How do we make them? And so you in I used I. Tell You just quickly. Tell my sources. Because I think they're breeding important. And in points of of information. For everybody to. Throw everything in the Paul so there's a Boko. By James Blades percussion instruments in the history. James Blades was an eminent. Historian but more importantly professional. Orchestral cautions. And Hey did hundreds and hundreds of British Museum trips trips the British Museum to find out about stuff and his book is law. I bought it in lockdown because the first time I've been able to find it one hundred pounds. Now Nice. YEA, it's one of those. When you go to Bella Percussion in London and other premium Percussion Higher Fleiss for London orchestras. Music in, London. This book is on their desk and it's a very good reason What's in there? His is just unbelievable. that's a really good book to look for James Blades and all of his books, actually and the Vienna symphony library, Doxa, fantastic results and only fall. In a music and and sorts of kind of interesting history of an Orchestra instruments, but more importantly it gives you a little bit of insight into how extreme used drums! The. British Museum has a website. The royal collection will look at Iraq lection the minute minute because it has one of. The earliest kind of. Single point chaining mechanisms I e one dial one nope. Many tones. And a system for in a recording those times. And there's a lot of history and tiffany. an lot of history kettle drums, and before that the golden acres and they will put on hold his, and before they were put on hold his. Jump Zone held by people and somebody else played them, so the poor guy was carrying drums down the road. Talk God, but when you really yeah when you really go by looking at tribal drums new. Skin's held on pegs joined insomnia and played over in a plate of pits. And, then you'll kind of. Go right back to. 'EM! In his skin stretched shells tortoises. Turtle Shell Shell Man Yeah, we're we're you know we really did use exactly what was to hand. know communicating passion and feeling. You know and we also had gun after that pretty much when we start, make clay. amphoras and Cookery and things like that. We had clay clay pots. So, if I actually found an old German the shed, which was exactly this, it's a it's a clay pot with a with a stretch skin. on the skin is the skinniest mate. Wet is put on the clay pot, and then is dried and sometimes, and then you know these attacked in the skins, and sometimes they're. Pulled on little bits of.

Climate and Floodwaters Are Top of Mind for Some Iowa Voters
"Number one issue for Democratic voters in this presidential election season is healthcare but trailing a close second is climate change morning edition host. Rachel Martin it has been reporting an Iowa this past week ahead of the caucuses and she spent some time in the city of Davenport Mississippi River. The city was the site of record breaking floods last spring. How does the rising river in the threat from climate change affect how people vote? Here's what she found out. You talked to enough business. Owners down by Davenport's riverfront and you quickly quickly realized that pretty much. Everyone has a flood story. I got a call from my sister in law. That said I drop the kids off. I have to go downtown. The levee broke all the water started coming through the drains. And I get down here and we had four and a half feet in her basement. It was coming up to our doors and we just started sandbagging. It just caught my eye and then I went. Oh my God the weavers coming in that last voices Tim Baldwin. He owns an upscale pub right on the waterfront. Dan Bush runs another restaurant a few blocks away and we met them at low pies. Pizza joint. Andrew Lopez is the owner there. Margarita a really chill are red red sauce. It's got a really nice kick to it so you really don't need much with it. All three of these guys took a financial hit after the flood last year but they were the lucky ones. Some some of the businesses around the area had to shut their doors for good. I mean here. You are sitting couple of hundred feet away from the riverbank right over there so do just write this off or do you expect that this is going to keep happening. I think we're forced to take it seriously. That's Dan Bush. After the disaster he started a coalition of business owners to advocate for better flood. Prevention Science shows shows that this is gonNA progressively get worse uh-huh and that we actually didn't it didn't get as bad as it could have got this year The last big event was a nineteen ninety-three. Don't expect it to be another twenty five twenty seven years before it happens again affects your hearts about climate change and your political choices Andrew. I think it's a big deal and it's been getting worse and worse every year so I think it's signed the take a step forward in China or something about it. I you know I love these guys but we have a different political views. Where's the difference? Well the climate change as we hear about it every day through the national media media. I don't believe is our problem. I believe climate changing and I believe climate's been changing since the inception of this planet. Right all I know is what is obvious is to me and that is when it rains. Water has nowhere to go except to the Mississippi River but is it. Is it related to what driving cars I and eating beef. I'm not convinced of that. Damn I think this event definitely made me think more about climate than ever had in my life but Yeah I think we're at the point. Where the cause is not the conversation? It's okay we tim and I agree. It's happening now. How do we handle it? Their answers for that question are are different too. It's GonNa Shave Danny political choice this year. He says he'll caucus for Elizabeth Warren for lots of reasons including her plans to fight climate. Change Tim on the other hand and is a conservative. His primary issue isn't climate change at all it's the economy and he's voting for Donald Trump. We say our goodbyes. Then walk back along the river. We take a right near retail shops and eventually find our way to e second street where we meet any stop-loss. We've got a lot going on right now. So so that's why it's this. Andy runs trendy. Men's clothing store just a couple blocks from the river. I mean the whole community came together and it was. We were knees deep in water. I see and bagging all this area to protect you know our space power you preparing for the inevitability of it happening again. Since I've lived here we've only had one really really big flood And it was when I was young. I don't remember it so historically the are not very high but when you think of the environment the effects and everything that is included what's happening. The chances are a lot higher. Do those issues motivate you politically absolutely. She doesn't want to say who she's going to caucus for Monday but her fiance Kayla is all in for Elizabeth Warren. She's worried about our children and our children's children and what the environmental merriment earth is going to be like at that point because have kids. No we're yesterday. I got my apartment. Were Planning on it. Yeah in time a year. You're after the flood. Anne and Kayla are looking to the future like so many others. We talked with here and after tomorrow's caucuses they'll have a better idea of what that future might look like.
Iowa Farmer Says He's Disenchanted With President Trump
"We've been talking about how exceptional these caucuses are happening tonight for starters. They've never been so many candidates to choose from at least on the democratic side and there have never there has never been an incumbent quite quite as divisive as President Donald. That seems to be making things even more unpredictable here than usual. It's rain and the illustrate that I want to introduce you to rob Ewald. I met him on driving around the eastern part of the state with editor. Dalia todd producer. Taylor Haney you won't is Republican. Who says he is so disappointed in trump he might caucus tonight for a Democrat and understand why RAV has been so disenchanted with the president? It is helpful to understand where he comes from my parents they They bought this in nineteen seventy. It was just bear grass and their pasture. And I gotTa go to Rob's farm just outside Davenport it was just gorgeous ten acres pastures rolling hills all of it covered with snow. It's where they keep some horses and some cows a couple of styles of corn before they ship it to their buyers. He runs a bigger thousand Acre farm. Not far away from where he grows corn and soybeans his crops. The have been strong in recent years but prices are not right now beans or break even at best to raise. We're not buying any new equipment. Were in survival mode. Why is it going to this point? They don't have enough places to sell their beans. I mean some of that has to do with the trade war with China. China's the biggest importer of American soybeans ends and those sales dropped dramatically. Seventy five percents. That drop was in two thousand eighteen and rob thought it was going to be temporary. Me Personally I I was looking at this. This is a short term deal and I'M NOT GONNA pick China over the US. So I'm like yeah. Let's even the stuff out. He's willing to take the hit here right but he's not not just taking the hit on soybeans even more it's rob's corn production that suffering. He is a Republican and he generally votes that way voted for Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen but last fall the president did something that rob cannot get over. I was mad and are still pretty upset about. He's talking about a move. By the trump administration. Last Fall Fall the EPA the Environmental Protection Agency granted these exemptions to dozens of oil producers. So they don't have to make ethanol into gasoline. Ethanol is a biofuel Tomato Corn Oh and by mixing it in. It's supposed to make gas more environment environmentally friendly right but because of those waivers oil refineries stopped buying ethanol or meant that they no longer needed to buy corn from Ron Right. Exactly we're not asking for a whole lot. When we were already getting knocked down from trade the lease the administration she could have done was prop up there and give us something? That's going to go year after year. You know all this stuff is working against him right. It's unpredictable. Well weather patterns which are even more unpredictable now because of climate change there's also trade policy politics plays into all of it and honestly rob is worried that things will get so hard. His his boys won't be able to take over the family farm and make a living. And here's a bit where I get to play cute tape of his eleven year old Isaac taking care of his sources. Can you take the rap down and put it in the barn please it out on my neck. They're just doing tours around the farm and clearly rob so in his element. He's on his farm working with the sun but because things have been so tough financially. He can't be here all the time anymore. He's had to take a part time job driving semi trucks. You know what I don't mind doing it. It's something that the boys what's that you mind it. It does cut into a little bit on family family time and stuff. I have some different hours but you understand why we have to do it right. So that's that's the big thing that they understand and I'm not You know I'm pretty proud. I don't WanNa have to ask for anything. So we make sacrifices. So it's really heartbreaking to hear right it is and it's shaping his political choices here's what he thinks about the Democratic contenders. Some of these just are too extreme for me. There's I just I don't know where were money comes from for some of the projects. It just blows my mind. Do Biden not modern Anna. friel Joe Biden. I don't trust him. You know with what's going on right now with the impeachment. I think trump got caught and maybe biden. That's just the way I look at it and you trust you trust Donald. I didn't say that either. I didn't say that it is and I did. Vote for him right now. Maybe I leave the top box empty to be honest with you because my family and I are in a worse position now than we were four years ago. So it's very difficult to say. I got my vote. Oh so he says he's probably not gonNa vote for the President of music. Is there any other candidate out there. Who would go for you know? He likes Amy Klobuchar. He says she understands agriculture culture and has a good mid Western values. And yes. He says he might show up at the caucus tonight but mainly to watch the spectacle but this is the kind of disaffected Republican and that the Democratic Party Democratic candidates are trying to do one thing. I've learned here in Iowa that when people go in tonight I mean. The results can be really unpredictable. Taboo pray talk things out and and who knows right and it's been we've heard stories about how many people have not yet made up their minds and so things could change once people get in the room tonight at the Caucasus.

"Hi Andrew then guess what is your take on antiquated terms. Sounds like somebody and safe off to have raises routes but are really no longer associated with great There's definitely the limitations on that or should we've just stopped using this phrase was one of them cakewalk. Keiko was the first one he said uppity. Still that's wild that the caller would even consider any other contact. Diametrically opposed like uppity cakewalk. I mean look the use that a lot cakewalks I google cakewalk. I didn't know that was. I guess surprised me that I mean I easily could have google there before I got into into the studio okay. Cakewalk with the dance developed from the prize walks held in the mid century usually at Black slave plantations before after emancipation in the end states basically it was like like they would just walk into like a dancing like that was like a celebration. They were doing every now. And then Yeah Shit too I go with this but I mean there are so many loaded oded. Yeah things we did something called a cakewalk in elementary school. I was living in Texas where you'd walk in a circle and there would be little. Construction paper burst pieces on the ground with numbers on them and when the music stopped. Whatever number you would at you right you were lifted up and then they draw one and then whoever had that number got cake human human roulette children way more fun May Day we had to do made a maypole inches? Yeah it was. What century did you grow up from? A small town called Pine Hall North Carolina. Five minutes town yeah. It was every every day dance coming in they dance around the maple now wondering if the people in Texas decided they had to reverse engineer cakewalk. Something else could be like all along. Oh it was just this thing where we give gigs. We definitely had cakewalks in Michigan. So that I've only I've only heard in the phrase like this is going to be a cakewalk. I've never heard the actual. Yeah neither yeah bent of walking whereas uppity. Ah It's a little bizarre that the caller along those up is still about controlling women and minority. I know her yeah. That's right that's one thing. Where if it did origine with being applied to people of color it has definitely extended to women? Yeah I I just got powerpoint hard pass on uppity. Yeah not even close by the way not even in the realm of like. Oh yeah because we could see your point. Yeah I don't think you can get mad at someone specifically me first thing in the clear that is one one of those things where it's like. It feels like people call in to our peak. Feels like people call into podcast like this for heart answers right like they want us to say some shit like one hundred years or I you know if less than ten percent of the population could answer this. You know. Identify unify the racist ideology. And they want that. That's not going to happen. Obviously but what is it. Is there a thing. Does it feel like it's just like pornography and when you see it kind of sense I think this goes back to literally the the idea of institutionalized racism that's assistant institutionalized institutionalized thing of that like the same idea of like using the term sold up a river is like it's right based in racists slave terminology not but now it's been so far removed from them and that and that's why I know but you know what people are thinking about like man. I got Sola River like knowing the thinks about the sitting in high cotton like no one thinks about that. That'd be more of a southern thing. My I use that one there ever I have used. And in retrospect it's it's pretty obvious yeah cubs from. I thought about that. Would you know this is like the truly really one of those like divorcing the malice from the racism situations. I guess it would be hard to imagine a time in two two thousand nineteen where someone says again up buddy no cake walk with sort of like racist intent however however I do I have many times on this show railed against using intent as any sort of metric. Because that lets you. It gives the racist actor. The control over didn't mean it like you can always claim ignorance or whatever if you're dishonest enough and racist tend to be but but is there a better metric than intent. I guess no the combination of intent and if everyone else's ignorant of it to Like dictionaries just ruining show. Yeah Yeah you know what cakewalk. If you say I'll give you passed down that's my. That's that's I mean. Don't don't go don't you know how could you like. Discover the word nigger and they'd say it in class. Yeah don't be like that but if I heard the word cakewalk I won't turn up pretty pretty. That's a different conversation. Damn damn caller. Get Your Shit Right. Yeah you're right honey Andrew and guests so I tweeted something about not liking it when white people are at a restaurant because when I go there they tend to be like. What is this woman you can show me photos of this and Yesterday when I went to one this group of white ladies. He's like different like what. Is that some chicken noodle soups and say oh. That's so annoying. I Jesus about that and then white male. Yeah that that was the most recent thing he's ever heard of his life She think for clarity. Let's assume the objection was to saying. I don't like when white people are in restaurants because otherwise it's not interesting. That's a racist thing that guy is heard I would love to. Life is just like they read it like Oh man come on engine Harbert Grad Classic Reply Guy Tactic finding the most inaugural noth- West tweet right. And then Judy that into being reece's against themselves whites is there. Is there anything I think I feel like food is complicated thing especially in a city like La weather and in recent times there is a lot more like like sort of like food both tourism and sort of like Columbus kind of shit happening and it it is sort of one of the the the more blurry lines between like what do you mean when you say cultural appropriation or just simply liking something. Yeah because you know you're allowed to eat it right yeah. I think there's like some kind of standard of respect when you go into like Like a like an ethnic ethnic restaurant that has stuff that you're not familiar with I'm like yeah Not Not only am. I like shy about asking any questions. I have to like. Pretend that I know what I'm doing the idea of asking like what is that chicken. Good noodle soup is like so I could never betray whatever I end up with. Yeah when you walked worked in Yeah Yeah yes and I and Yeah and I have to eat it and pretend to enjoy and know how like never ask any question even if even if what showed up was completely really different from what I thought I was getting. That's okay that is a little bit I I'm I'm a little bit torn because I feel like I'm of the like other. I don't know how to do this. But maybe it's easy for me because I don't have a white face so it's like if I'm at a Mexican restaurant or something or even just like Korean Rian restaurants or something that I truly don't know I'm like I don't know how to do this. I'm actually the problem of the camp. I come with confidence even I don't I am wearing like you know. This is exactly what I want when I walk in. I'm looking at Yelp all day and I WANNA come in. Maybe that's it the Internet can just tell you the script so I mean that that sort of makes me wonder about the other intersections of this process. Where like it is a non way per like the next person going into a Vietnamese restaurant? Yeah Yeah Yeah like. They have a lot of questions. Well yeah that seems like it should be okay. Yeah not saying this dead white be ball exactly. Yeah Yeah Yeah totally it. It is a thing where it is like back to the extent that it's tough being white it is shit like you know in a big city where it's like this. You like. You're lumped in with the other white people that have been through there fairly or unfairly and it's like I see do that. I see that struggle. It's not the hardest struggle. Yeah kind of good struggle and there. Aren't that many of us here. Yeah I think. La Is Twenty. Eight percent Non Hispanic White. Oh Wow and that includes all all the Armenians Persians. I have really been fucking with where I'm hanging out. Say June like wow I highly over an expert cross my line of Sight Studio. Oh you gotta come to terms with me and hanging out fuck man sound actually better about myself. That's an incredible stat. I had no idea. That's really low. Data that's great Good for this city. It's cool yeah to device. Do we have advice for this. I mean why guys whack I I feel like the caller was mostly. Just tattling a question I I had this really annoying Said said some dumb bullshit. Yeah Okay you know I it call again extended there is advice. It is like may not obviously not the reply person. I think that it probably is worth. Maybe it is maybe the double jeopardy is just fine because it is a little bit like in. This person's is if I think about it. Maybe I'm a little sympathetic. To their point of view is like why people can't win with this shit. It's going to confident you're like gentrifying asshole and if you go into curious your cudgel tourists thing still it should maybe yeah. I'm just it's just not that bad of a problem. This is if this is the worst part of your day. Yeah the things are going pretty good. I guess. If I'm being honest I guess Uh yeah the curious people I largely I find them exhausting but fucked up. No I'm giving people a pass. I'm giving people pass. This is a softer side of injury. We haven't seen Yeah Andrew. No because I got my energy out yelling at the Taiwanese yeah tire you come down to Bruce Banner now I like fucked up. Oh it's because I'm drinking herbal tea. Another ago yes. Sleepy God okay. So we don't have advice for this course another the again. I don't know how a woman survives online but like the I think in this case you don't engage some. Yeah is what they want the mute button. But you're a blocker in block block. I meet through scared really of blocking absolutely. They're coming for me and I won't be able to see them coming. Oh Yeah I like the idea of being Lawson Chamber that I never see yes constantly weirdly. mccur twitter's blocked function is so bad that even even if you have blocked someone you'll see their shit all the time really. Yeah it's like something just doesn't work 'cause I I basically have blocked every racist or do you his list. How large his book? I have almost as many people I've blocked as followers how mid tens of thousands at this point I think I think my block end meatless combined is like twenty thousand people. Do you think having a podcast about like doc deciding whether or not things are racist has been done with that but I will say now I aggressively will go in well two things one is the it combines with another bad habit which I will block anyone who's ever advertised to me or for a little while I had that thing going until I started having friends with entertainment products that were being advertised and boy embarrassment. Yeah yeah the. The host of throwing shade were preemptive blocks. Oh the nicest thing they does he hate us or I was like. I just got blocked him. They could see yeah. It was incredible. So good for me. but no now I will also when I see like yeah my friends reply guys. I'll just go in and start blocking people. Yeah I get that from Indra preemptive mutes and blogs posting some bullshit. Yeah go you should go find that tweet. Yeah Okay Yeah Walk. That guy gets hit. It hit us up on twitter with the with the exact tweet and we'll go ahead and block them feels good feels good the most complex path to a block in a long fucking time. Well Shit Hayes. Can you tell people what what should they find a view on the Internet. I just have a twitter. That's my name that's Hayes Davenport and And I've got all these podcast now you you live in La. I do L. A. podcast about La stuff. And of course Hollywood handbook and we do a show about the NBA the flagrant ones which will start to have contact again. uh-huh and they're gonNA start playing basketball against hit yelling. Just talk about. Just don't get together to talk about nothing on off season now we do get together. There is no oh content Have really struggled to find stuff Retirement we've renamed every team. I think multiple dives as as someone who do. I'm a listener and patron and I don't watch basketball as a fun. Should listen to anyway. What what is real and what is next? Oh I wonder about that. Sometimes we'll do episodes where we do trade announcements where like some are real and what now. Oh in the in the universe of your head. It's just happening. Yeah that sounds legit. Probably have fans have charted out like what the fake NBA looks like according to Y'all we have have we have drafted..

"Guys hello heavy missed us. We've missed you. I did not. I just had to consult the calendar to realize. Is this a straight of coming out on Christmas. This is literal Christmas the day that ran out of Literal Christmas the day that Jesus crawls his way out of the earth and the the other one from Lord of the Rings Earrings Bit I was I was trying to do a bit. This is a stand up it. I kind of tried to work on which is like when you go like you know I'm not I'm not religious but I'm spiritual you know I so I'm wondering if if someone is useless anyway. I'm just going to do it. This is the thing. Let us know if we list but such effective like do I believe in in a spirit. Yeah I believe in a God to a believe God is a red man on a on a throne of spikes who lives in a boiling lake. Under uh-huh oh wait. No that's a good bit. I don't know now that I'm saying it feels like as far as I know it's from my own mind. We have time if you want to keep working on it anyway. So this is Jesus crawling his way out of hell. Actually this is. The show is the the best that was one of the best minds could gravy. Merry Christmas Mary. Ats Smith's Mary. DESMA CHRISMAS This is the show where we take your voicemail raises questions and we listened to them with album special guest. I brought it back but first we get into some current events and stuff but not this week because as we told you last week the Air Wolf Studios are closed. They don't want us here. Don't even exist. We tried guys. We said our people need us and we said we have to get in there and Colin Anderson. Yeah the Anti Chee. Christmas does have a definite Christmas. Oh the anti to Santa having a an anti person let us know if you guys know. Let me a Santa Devil But anyway no the studios are closed so we are recording this ahead of time ahead of time so what we wanted to do. But we have a great interview coming up with none other than your Wolf Darling. Boy a Hayes Davenport so You guys are GonNa love that. I'm not in it but you'll you'll survive spirit of Christmas I guess the full disclosure for people who are more familiar with how the show is put together. We didn't strictly speaking being plan on his episode being released on Christmas Day. So there isn't any like Christmas e-content in it. No it's a good. It was a good conversation. We're so excited for your Christmas racism. I'm still your Christmas flavored. Racism we could talk about. What do you think what do you think I mean? We don't predictions. I mean it's been light on. I assume at some one point I was GONNA say back. What what a treasure like a classic like an old friend? This is my holiday hallmark movie. Hearing hearing about this little black fuckers that run around US Santa Slaves and in Nordic countries boy. I mean we're going to get a question about that. Got A lot of new listeners. This year they haven't heard you answer it every year for the last thirty five years. Yeah so what's your general. Take AAC on that whole look I actually. I have a little bit sympathetic that the traditional black face is an American one And and that type of racism does not have the exact same meaning in non-american countries. However two things one is cultural hegemony of the United States has been broadcast to everywhere especially places like Europe? They should fucking know better but also even the accepting their explanation. That look blood. It's just we don't have a lot of black people and we want to honor the like it's still a thing where your first of all the Dutch of all people don't really have a leg to stand on moral superiority over fucking slavery flat like like this idea. It's still just like at even even taking their word like what is just about honoring the skin tone or whatever you know. It's just like the it's still just being like guess what we're thinking about blackness and that's always see I also like I feel like sometimes people say that they are actually just sooty footy. They've come down the chimney we answered this last year that it's not they're not black people know you don't have those here. They've just come down a chimney covered in soot which is maybe worse. Because it's just so insulting thing really all these little slaves just happen to be black because the chimney there so often have read lips and shit around like on the brakes your lips or the bricks racist..

"You read guide Davenport. At great length for the first time relatively recently. Yes. In fact, I fell in love with Davenport back in the eighties. When I read his first book of affections tap one. Which is marvelous he wrote over four hundred essays of republished in various journals, and you can see many of these in his book the geography of the imagination. I had not read all of the fiction until more recently. And so. Some of the areas that Davenport explored in greater length and some of his homoerotic fiction. I had not been exposed to. And it's it seems the this may be a time. Now when these are of our Rattlebone that these could once again be read with a different way of looking at a Davenport being a professor at the university of Kentucky is in a rather difficult situation, but some of the most beautiful writing and the English language is is in Davenport. Now what Jim cower mentions Edward was once a tightly guarded secret, the homo erotic and homosexual interests of guide Davenport, you managed somehow. How to announce this in your introduction? Is there? Still a quarantine around those facts. I don't I don't think. So one can't read the late fictions without being aware of it. And Davenport also illustrated two books that he worked on with Kenna the stoic comedians. Counterfeiter and the counterfeit is and then he would many of his fictions when they appeared would appear with his own illustrations and the later fictions with illustrations of naked young men, and I don't think that there's any now prohibition on them. And I did want to add something to a Jewish saying each one dedicated a book to the other the geography the imagination is dedicated to Kenner and the American modernist book is dead conveyed world homemade world is dedicated..
