Magic Johnson has closed on sixteen acres on the site at Woodward and eight mile the group called magic plus LLC paid about four hundred seventy thousand dollars for two separate pieces of land book, ending the transit center along Woodward for a mixed use development magic pluses led by MSU trustee. Joel Ferguson, the city of Detroit will pay seven million dollars for the remaining one hundred and forty two acres later this month mayor Mike Duggan has repeatedly said the city is looking for large adjacent tracts of land to us to recruit companies to Detroit the Michigan state fair closed in two thousand nine after one hundred and five years due to budget cuts. The property was transferred to the Michigan landbank in twenty twelve. Another downtown building has been snapped up by Dan, Gilbert's real estate arm. Bedrock late last week multiple outlets reported that bedrock purchased the Fowler building on Woodward for an undisclosed price. It's been sitting empty for long time as lofts offices and retail sprouted up around it. It's address is twelve twenty five Woodward. It's directly across from the new Hudson site development built in nineteen eleven by Donaldson and Meier the forty eight thousand square foot building is a beauty who wants take bets. This one gets renovated before we see another district attorney building go up deal meeting on that, Jerry. And I'll see you a higher bet that will the district tweet ever get built. Johnson woman the editor and publisher of the Detroit News has died at the age of sixty eight due to complications from pancreatic. Cancer woman was well respected in journalistic and political circles over a forty six year career that included twelve years at the helm of the Detroit News and a decorated career at the Associated Press in an age where local papers have lost news, bureaus and other cities woman. Support of the news having one in Washington DC that proved useful during the twists and turns of the auto bailout giving the Detroit News a decided edge woman is survived by his wife three grown children and three siblings. There's an excellent in detail right up by columnist Daniel house on the Detroit News. Grosse Pointe public schools has long been considered one of the top school districts in Michigan. But now the district is facing some difficult upcoming choices about closing schools. Amid dwindling enrollment the district late last week released a list of buildings for possible closure like many school districts across Michigan. The affluent district has been seeing declining enrollment losing an average of one hundred students each year for seventeen years that translates to an annual drop in revenue of around a million dollars. The Detroit News reports that the district is targeting savings of at least one million dollars per year. It also wants to be at eighty percent capacity in as many school buildings as possible on the table. Our proposals to close to elementary schools and move fifth grade students into middle school buildings but one option that's not on the table. Opening the district to non gross pointers through Michigan's school of choice program the district currently operates nine. Elementary schools three middle schools, two high schools and an early childhood center for seventy six hundred students the student population grows point is seventy four percent white and around sixteen percent African American. If you like the comedy of the recently ended comedy central show Detroiters. We have some good news for you. Tim Robinson, one of the creators of Detroiters has a new show coming out it's called I think you should leave with Tim Robinson. The Netflix show was created by Robinson and is produced by Andy Sandberg and the lonely island. That's a comedy trio that includes Sandberg the new sketch comedy show will have a who's who of guest stars. Among them are Sam Richardson who played Robinson sidekick on Detroiters. You'll also see Saturday Night Live veterans Vanessa. Bayer sesame strong and will forte just to name a few the season. We'll have six episodes and starts Tuesday, April. Twenty third will have linked to the trailer in the show notes. Speaking of media, the free film fast place over the weekend. So then you get out to sea. Boy. Howdy. What did you think? Boy. Howdy. The story of cream magazine. I got to go see the let's see Friday night showing at the Royal Oak. Imagine theater. It was great really fun movie as you might expect. We had the preview interview with JJ Kramer last week, the co producer of the documentary. So you get a sense of the magazines reverence is a really great look at like how the scrappy little magazine little Zine, basically launched in Detroit. Really kind of became such a cultural juggernaut had this huge cultural impact on the on the music scene. I think you know, I don't know that they come out and explicitly say this. But I think part of it had to do with the fact that when it launched in the late sixties and got going in the early seventies. And everything the the music scene here in Detroit was really incredible. You know, there was all these great garage rock bands. The grand ballroom was going. So it was it was a, you know, huge venue that attracted bands from touring huge touring bands. The who leads up on everybody. You also had local acts like the MC five the stooges that I don't think, you know, the big publication Rolling Stone, probably wasn't giving them much attention or respect, frankly. And I think, you know, cream success was partly a reflection that there was a wider audience for this kind of music than a lot of people acknowledged. But anyway, so it was a lot of fun. Those of you who didn't get to see it. If you ever do get a chance by all means go ticket, Jair USA a film. Called death by zip code. What's that all about? Well, it was about the seven hundred plus deaths in poor communities in Chicago. After a massive heat wave in the mid nineties sons uplifting. It was a it was a good film. But man, it's a hard watch. Like, it it definitely grounded. You one of the things that I took away was that a lotta times at least in the Detroit conversation. We like to think that we're a individual snowflake that things are very special in Detroit but nowhere else. But watching this film, so many streets in the south side of Chicago looked so much like what you would see in the worst areas of Detroit just fields blown out, you know, empty liquor stores, and it was kind of mind blowing, and it talked about a lot of factors. So it started out with this heat wave or basically hundreds of people who basically cooked alive. Yeah. In their parents, their windows were nailed shut for security reasons, they had to choose between a fan and fresh air and feeling safe. And this went deeper than just the heat wave. What you find out as you do often with many issues facing urban areas is that there is kind of a cascading effect of causes one of those. Of course is the word used to dealing with here in Detroit. If you go in history, which has redlining where basically only in certain areas of town, could you get a mortgage or get insurance for your house? Well, those areas always coincided with the white areas versus poor folks. This also had the upshot that when people came back from World War Two, basically, if you're minority you did not get a home loan when you came back from the war. And if you were white you did and that created a institutional wealth gap, that's persisted to this day. 'cause there's a lot of stuff that you can do when you own a home versus not, especially if the government's paying basically for your home or giving you the ability to get that house. It was powerful. It was depressing. It definitely makes you want to do something. But it also just judging by the reaction of the crowd, judging by just what I know from being around the city for twenty years. The thing that struck me is that not enough has moved on these issues around awareness. It's really hard to show people what the challenge challenge is really are in urban areas. And so if you do wanna get a beginning of a sense of what's happening. I highly recommend you check out this film, and our thanks to the whole cast at the film festival for helping us out last week and getting us into see these documentaries. So spend your off of daily Detroit the rest of the week. But you're still working your heading out to the New York auto show to see what's going on out. There is indeed the New York International Auto Show be my first time covering that one been to L A a couple times for that Osho. But thought it'd be fun to go. Visit the Big Apple big emphasis on on luxury autos, New York, not surprisingly is a is a big market for those. Things. Lots of of rich people live out their kind of interesting that the Shanghai auto show on the other side of the world moved up the dates of their auto shows with basically at the same time. I think that's going to steal a little bit of the, you know, some of the events because I mean, you affectively have to auto shows going on simultaneously on opposite sides of the world, you know, at a time when when all out of shows are sort of scrapping to remain relevant and everything nevertheless, some interesting things on tap Cadillac is showing new vehicle called the C T five it's a sedan. It's it's a replacement for the CTO, and it's supposed to sorta herald a new direction for their their cars as opposed to like crossover and everything speaking of crossovers Lincoln will show the corsair that's going to be the replacement for the m K C, which is like a compact crossover Ford. We'll have the twenty twenty escape a lot of people have compared that to like a fiesta, basically like raised fiesta almost a couple other quick highlight Subaru's going to have an all new outback and.

Detroit Bike City? This Ranking Says No, Plus 3 Things To Know Around Town

"From Detroit's university district. This is your daily Detroit for Tuesday may seventh two thousand nineteen I'm spend gossips, and I'm Jerry stays pushing the droids conversation forward between intermittent power outages. So let's get right into it before we lose electric city again afterward from our sponsor daily Detroit is brought to you in part by Milo Milo is a marketing agency that produces amazing experiences for audiences. They partner with their clients to drive business and create innovative content. Do cool stuff with them at Milo DOD agency for years Detroiters literally lived in the dark because the streetlights didn't work after one hundred eighty five million dollars worth of investment. The city for the most part has working streetlights. But now there's a pretty big hiccup about one third of the new LED street lights are allegedly defective. Most are on the city's west side the lights installed between twenty fourteen and twenty six. Eighteen have a ten year warranty. But they're burning out early cracking and dimming the fixtures were made by a California firm called Leah tech. And now the Detroit public leading authority is suing Leo tech to get replacements. After officials say the firm went silent. After initially acknowledging the problem in the years before the city overhauled its streetlights about forty percent of the city streetlights did not work swin. I'm glad we have streetlights. I really am. They help us. See they're good things in public safety. There's lots of good benefits the street lights, but I gotta say this tickertape parade. That's been thrown for like a couple years for them getting fixed. It always mystifies me as well. As the years we Detroiters like like, tolerated the situation, I file all of this under working street lights under things that we're just supposed to have. Despite a huge push to improve bicycling infrastructure in recent years, Detroit fares poorly in an annual ranking of best US cities for biking Detroit ranks at one point six stars out of five in the best cities for bikes ranking by places for bikes that's a program by the nonprofit advocacy organization people for bikes Detroit's ranking is unchanged from two thousand eighteen the places for bike survey basis. It's city ratings on five different factors that are all given equal weight. It uses its own research tools, plus publicly available data from the likes of the census bureau's American community survey and bicyclist fatality data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. We wanted to dive into these numbers a little bit because they're interesting, but they're also the source of some contention and more on that in a minute Detroit. Scored lowest factor which measures the pace of developing new bicycling, infrastructure and. Encouraging people to ride bikes. It's especially interesting because Detroit has added hundreds of miles of bike lanes across the city in recent years and launch the popular Mogo bike share program in two thousand seventeen that program is now expanding to deliver annoy avenue a fashion district and several entering suburbs. Detroit. Also earned low marks for things like by commuting demographic, apps and bicycling fatalities. And injuries boulder. Colorado ranked tops in the best cities for biking at three point seven out of five stars interestingly, both Ferndale and Ann Arbor scored in the top twenty five of cities at three stars apiece. Now, we mentioned this ranking was not without its critics someone on Twitter alerted me to a rebuttal piece by our friend Todd Scott at the Detroit Greenway coalition, they've probably done more than any other organization to make Detroit more bike friendly and they've worked closely with the city government the Detroit Greenway coalition says studies from all the various bike advocacy organ. Stations rely on heavily flawed data that data in particular hurts Detroit because most residents here commute to the suburbs for work, and they don't do it by buck, and they rely on open street map data to get a sense of bike networks when there aren't large and active users of the technology here in Detroit, and in other cities with high poverty rates and limited access to technology, Detroit, Greenway argues that a better way to gauge the city's bite culture would be to weigh factors, including the number of miles of bike lanes and trails bike count data Mogo and slow roll membership figures the number of bicycle clubs in the city and the number of bicycle shops in operation of links to the study and the Detroit Greenway coalition rebuttal up on daily Detroit dot com. I personally love that we have a reaction piece about a bike survey. It's so metal. Oh, yeah. Hot takes pedals for days, man. That said two things we really do. Have a lack of open street map data around here and opened at in general with a huge digital gap in the city. This is kind of like a reflection of the fact, I think it's like we've talked about this too distant before forty percent of Detroit households don't have broadband of any kind. So if you don't have broadband, it's really hard to contribute to these big projects or a smartphone in your pocket, and and second I dug into the city of Detroit map on the survey site. I wanna put out point out a few things. I mean, these seem glaring to me, but maybe you can tell me if I'm crazy specifically they have this BNA score. There biking network analysis. They note that a few areas are bad for bikes red, which is a longtime Detroit bicyclist, I have issue with one bell Iowa's Allred like bell is great for biking. Also Palmer park nearby here. Palmer woods. I mean. They're actually there are now bike lanes by Palmer park. But there are no bike lanes through that neighborhood. They're just north of seven mile, but if you wanna cut through the Ferndale if you want to bike in this. Town probably one of the safest residential neighborhoods to ride a bicycle in. I mean because they've caught off access from both Woodward from Woodward at least, so you know, to to discourage all the people that were cutting through to try to beat the light and speeding through there. You can't do that anymore. So it's I mean, what little traffic is in. There is crawling at like ten miles an hour on top of that they have their own security patrol and actually was featured in vice actually vice media over the weekend. Crazy report about like, they're rather intense security patrol over there with hummers, and like he end, the jackal jackets and everything are kinda creepy. Yeah. But we're have to dig into that more. But anyway, it is safer biking. And but that whole area that's marked as read. It's it kind of blows my mind. There's another thing in this list. There's like a lot of factory sites that shouldn't be counted. And I'm just going to be honest. Like, you're not going to be rolling through the poll town plant on your like trustees schwinn, you know, what I mean? I'd like to see what would happen if you try. It actually don't pass me. Current sheri-. In roads are the two top pocketbook. Issues. Facing Michigan residents right now after all not only does Michigan have highest car insurance rates in the nation. But our roads are among the nation's worst as well. So here's the latest update. Republicans in the Michigan Senate have pushed through a Bill that would allow people to purchase different levels of personal injury protection on their car insurance. They could also drive without medical coverage. If their existing health insurance plan covers injuries from auto accidents Senate Bill one passed the Senate, mostly along party lines. Save for two Democrats from Detroit who voted yes. The measure would end new claims to the Michigan catastrophic claims association. We talked about that on a recent podcast episode ending lifetime coverage for major injuries. The Bill also does not guarantee that savings from this change would pass on to consumers. Republicans rejected amendments that would prevent non driving factors like a credit score. And education level from being included in insurance rates. The Bill now goes to the Michigan house, and there's a long history of no fault insurance reform bills dying in that chamber. Then I I don't have a good feeling about this. So doing research for putting the story together the numbers from Republicans as far as cost savings. They're saying it somewhere between fifteen and forty six percent, depending on which plan you went with. But those numbers are not backed up by third party. Like, the Senate fiscal agency the bean counters the Michigan legislature. Yep. Exactly, they're the nonpartisan number crunchers. I like to take a look at them. I think it's always important, whether you're dealing with either political party any political party to check on numbers and make sure those things are straight. Interestingly this kind of jumped out at me the Michigan health and hospital association, which I will describe them as kind of a risk averse agency. They don't get involved in a lot of fights in Lansing. I will say they put out a statement today. Attributed to their CEO. Brian Peters said that Senate Bill one is quote a shocking step backwards. He says instead of holding insurers accountable for discriminatory rate-setting in lowering rates Senate Bill one limits coverage and asks drivers to simply trust the insurance companies. Yeah. That's the thing is I think we've learned I think everyone should take away from the most recent lesson of things like the district Troy and other stuff like we need to get this stuff in writing. And I mean on on balance, at least for my own personal opinion. I do think giving people choice around how much coverage they have is a good thing. Like, I am not. I'm not a the government has to tell you what to do kind of guy. But the thing is to about this is that people don't realize that healthcare is pretty much the biggest cost in Michigan's unique no fault system and often. It is true that we are paying twice for coverage with both our health and our auto insurance. But again, the the devil is always in the details. But here's the thing. This really feels. I mean, I don't know about you. But this fell like the came right on the radar. I really quick for. Yeah. This was fast to like, you know, like hurrying through. It's a, you know, it's a big change. It's a complicated topic to whenever there's a complicated topic and a quick Bill that runs through. I always get nervous that idea. Yeah. So this makes me feel like this is the insurance industry, and I'd love to hear someone about me on this. But it feels like the insurance industry is kind of trying to get ahead of the ball before public pressure amounts to get more substantial changes through like eliminating non driving factors from rates, you that's actually a national push with repeated to leave and things like that. And that's actually gaining a lot of ground because people are sitting there going, you know, why should where I went to school matter in my insurance rates. Why should what kind of profession I have matter with my insurance rates? And here's the one thing I will close with that. I know some people may not agree with lobbyists usually have more experience and context than legislators right now in Lansing because legislators are. Term limited. So on this issue on many issues lobbyists have the upper hand because they have bigger budgets. They have bigger staffs and they have more time on the field. They've been around longer. I I don't know if I mentioned this before I think term limits are really stupid. But that's for another show another something completely different. All right mother's day is coming up. This Sunday may twelfth we thought we'd put together a little round up of ideas for how to spend the day with your mother or the mother of your children. If you're like me will include all of this with links details on how to make reservations at cetera on daily, Detroit dot com, but first up Aykroyd Scottish bakery and Redford township and Schramm's Meade have teamed up for a series of three course brunches on Saturday and Sunday at Schramm.

Meet Pingree Detroit, A Maker Of Leather Goods That Isn't Shinola

"So it didn't start with the idea of making products. It start the idea of how can we improve well-being for the people that were connecting with? From Detroit's new center. This is your daily Detroit for Friday may tenth two thousand nineteen. I'm spend gossips silent Jair is behind the knobs twiddling away on today's episode. We're here today to take a look at a company that's making high end handcrafted leather goods right here in Detroit and its name, isn't shy. Nola Pingree, Detroit is making leather shoes handbags and other goods right here in the city. They're putting Detroiters and veterans to work with an unconventional business model that prioritizes equity and sustainability we speak with co founder and CEO Jarrett slap. But first daily Detroit is brought to you in part. Thanks to the support of our listeners. If you like what you hear from us each and every day, there's no greater way to support us than by becoming patriarch member for as little as one dollar a month you can help ensure that we keep pushing great podcasts that. Bush Detroit's conversation forward. Visit patriot dot com slash daily Detroit. I've been like to start here this they exit the very first concept that we started with. So we're looking at okay, we wanna make shoes when you know. We haven't done it in Detroit since the fifties. What can it look like the silhouette looked like literally duct tape pattern is where we started and from their first prototype in two thousand fifteen nine basement of Detroit, we had a bunch of Queant that was donated to us from Lear, and we had a couple of different basements in a church basement downtown at central Methodist church, and we're in stuff at my house on the east side of Detroit. And I'm like, okay. Well, if if we're gonna make something what kind of represents this resilience, kind of herb utility someone's gonna last real long time that we can have make you in the city. And so this kind of led to almost four years later stickers are just went live in October. And so I'll call the mayor. Yes, named after Hazen s Pingree who was a veteran. He was a shoemaker. He was a three term mayor of Detroit, and it's twenty four th governor Michigan. And so he kind of us in by this idea of what does service look like when you put the wellbeing of the people I in every aspect you can so looked like fighting political corruption corporate corruption breaking up monopolies opening up all this land for folks to grow food on when there's a famine just kind of cooperative collective saying. Let's let's actually put the people first for a change. And so I understand that the there's red shoelaces and kind of red pull tab on the heel. That's that's intentional Hunterston is so it's two different aspects. So there's one the fact that the majority of the minimum in our team our veterans and those who've served coupled with the fact that so this kind of honors and pays homage to the service and sacrifice of men women who serve every single day as well. As back in eighteen eighty seven, I think he's Pingree shoe factory. Because he was a shoemaker back way back in the day. It was all almost burned to the ground and fireman. Save. His factor in. So he had this whole line of shoes with a red accent as a way to pay homage to the firefighters. And so although that company went out of business before he even became governor. We really were inspired to kind of lift up that exciting elements as well as let people know that that we really honor our folks that that that serve and keep our keep our country safe. So the the mayor launched in October just yesterday when shipped our hundred payout to a customer. So we spent a long journey to four years. We're a small team of eight and more work arounds company, which means seventy seven Suns over dollar profit share with all the workers. Shoemaking studio. Head coach. A lot of people would see Pingree Detroit, you're making you know, frankly, kind of high end shoes leather products handbags clutch purses things like that. And maybe mistake you for the other brand that's just block away from here shinola, right? But you guys are quite different in terms of your business model. Can you explain that a little bit because you guys have a very unusual kind of business structure? Yeah. So we kind of see ourselves as very community rooted and work around. So the quality of the products we see is competitive with any other folks are making bags and we're in the market. What makes us unique is that it's the materials it's the people, and it's the process. So the materials we use are all that's brand new leather that was being used in the production, new, car seats and steering wheels. But the Detroit auto industry, and there's leftover leather in the process perfectly good way tonight to be shipped over to China or landfill. And so we've. Developed a relationship with them to insert ourselves into their kind of production process. Get those remnant pieces sums box some donated and actually use that to make you know, our shoes to make our backs to make our clutches to make the totes to make the wallets. And the folks who actually make them are native Detroiters lifelong Detroiters new Detroiters and US veterans. So our core folks is creating living wage work at teaching skilled trades, and creating support systems wrap around for men and women who are specially underserved, and overcoming a lot of adversity. And we we are now worker owned company. So that means seventy seven cents of dollar is shared with the workers on our team interesting. And and you're a small team here. Right. Like, how many workers do you have? No, we are. We are a team of eight. So we do a lot with a little we wear many shoes. One could say and four of us are fulltime for part time. And so it's kind of a find a way create the way and we're working towards. Both improving our our processes, so we can be more kind of kinda imagine a traditional factor mouth. But that also maximize well being so the more people we can bring out in bring more on than we'll be able to improve how quickly we can make things right now. It's very best book. It's very handmade. But that's also it's extremely therapeutic to work their hands and make something that's intention on every step that you're putting the quality of craftsmanship in every stitch. And you know, it's gonna last a lifetime. And it's handmade like the footwear is almost exclusively made by US veterans on our team Lhasa left him how so I've never heard of shoes last living. Yes. So the beauty is one your soul wears out on your shoe meant let me be clear. You can bring it back to US Senate back to us. We'll even ship your box, and we resold that. So the uppers are they're made to be in car seats that have mental last decades. Those you're on your feet baguettes snug your foot at breaks and beautifully, and then we can just keep resulting it we can patch it if we need to you'll have some character thirty years from now, but you've still got a Detroit made Prague that's going to last. We're designing products also to be kind of circular in the economy. So we won't things to be closed loop in the cycle. We want to be completely waste free toxic free and carbon negative in the next five years, your company Pingree, Detroit is a few years old. Now talk to us about how you started this company mean what happened? Where'd you get the idea to to do this kind of unusual business model and everything? Sure. So it didn't start with the idea of of making products it start the idea of how can we improve well for the people that were connecting with so in the same week back in the fall twenty fourteen. I met a young man who was squatting neighbor in the show of villages community and the east side. I I'm lucky enough to know a lot of folks neighbor, the elders when we have potlucks someone brings the elders plate like everyone just knows each other. And it's amazing. And there's this young man going out of the house squatting. I went and talked and brought them a case of water and some stuff to make PJ's abandoned, home or something. And it was like, hey, man. Like I doing like, what do you need? And he's like, you know, let me always like, I'm surviving. I'm trying to find work and he turned out. He was a veteran he'd been homeless than six months and was his story. Like had he been deployed overseas or something. Yeah. He was home from Afghanistan. His name is Ryan he was about my age couple years older, he found work as a security guard. He couldn't find sable and plumbing was living with his brother is only family locally. And then his brother's wife kicked him out the house because he kept waking up or night. It's a store that make me truly pissed off. And it didn't see it didn't fit with my model of what I thought was reality. So I done work for Senator Carl Levin doing veterans. Affairs work supporting veterans with the benefits I was aware of the VA support systems, and there's a lot of robust support systems, but there's tons of gaps. And I wasn't as a way of those gaps. I thought I was and so mean this guy who was just trying to find out for two. He was fine surviving survive in no problem in the house, but he couldn't find an opportunity. And so that was kind of this little gave him the ten bucks. I had my walk gave him my phone number said, I'm going to find a way to get connected with some resources, you know, follow with me. And we did. But then that same week. I'm at another veteran who's also homeless going door to door trying to find work. Wow. This guy masters engineering was working through some diction and was working through a lot of trauma. Also had served overseas. Couldn't find an opportunity this guy. Michael amazing women being we actually I said out loud him like someone like this unaccept- someone should use something about this. And I said out loud. Just like I said the same nights my buddy Jo we need to do something about this. And so that day, this was kind of this moment of something's gotta give like this doesn't work. And so to explore what is the need. What can we create? What would we need to do to do something about this? And so we actually employed Michael is the first thing I was I was working fulltime at the time to work across the midwest in leadership development, and so we actually employed Michael dulas in campaign where you actually went and sat down with veterans, nonprofits veteran's shelters veterans who do a lot of work in the advocacy round to see like what are the needs. What are the gaps worthy the problems, and what a veterans say they need? And so we identify that. There's this gap between the. Visions of basic needs and living wage work. And what what did he find out specifically about why veterans have such a hard time finding work? There's a lot of different things there's one that at times folks, have difficulty matching skills that they may be had overseas matching it with civilian employment. There's a fact that a lot of jobs this monotonous, lack of meaning just do what you're told fitting? And it's like if you've seen the world pullback, and you know, what's really going on. It's kinda hard to just fit in and just live in a monotonous, no meaning life when you've lived alongside people who would give their life to to to make sure you have yours so to go from a purpose driven structure environment to just free fraud. I'm going to step on your toes, push you down. So I can get up. It's such a challenge. I would invite the snow that I would say veterans speak best from selves. Now. I'm known to say like, I know what veterans need, but I've had a lot of that durins. Tell me that there's been a challenge finding means. For work, and there's such an opportunity. Some of these men women have such capacity to lead and to be a part of team driven environments, and they have such opportunities to give and it's been a mix of having those opportunities presented to them having just access to know they exist, and then the support systems along the way to make sure that they don't fall between the cracks. So that if you know, they have a support system that that it's okay to let someone know you could use some support and to make those easily accessible and connected veterans as poor to other veterans. So those are some some of the few in then you got to have stable housing, if you need job you've got to have just some of those core basics figured out and a lot of times, even the basics aren't figured out. How is business going is is Pingree Detroit profitable yet or you inching closer to that? So we had our first problem month in December. We're still we're still losing money on day to day. A as a an l three c where social impact company, which means our primary focus. Is mission coupled with being profitable. But we're we're definitely surviving on on loans, and donations and stales are slowly picking up. You know, this one hundred pair of sneakers the people are really moved by the store. The impact would just not in front of enough people yet we're still trying to talk story and doing it. The bootstrapped way. So I still don't pay myself. I bartend Wednesdays pay myself. My Kohner doesn't pay himself yet. So it's the the people need to be working I work in right now. But it's a matter of how can we strategically get in front of more, folks? Let them know we're up to and also on the story and empowering way. So we don't necessarily lift up the homelessness piece as much anymore because we wanna make sure it's empowering to the team the members of that are working through and they're they're very different situation. They might have been in the past. So let's talk about that the business designation that will three c how does that differ from being a conventional company that's more focused on traditional profits and losses and things like that. I mean, does it does it add? Challenges for you, of course. Yeah. So in L three c means that we're a social impact company. So our our main purpose for existing is to fulfil the social mission, which involves maximizing wellbeing supporting veterans in Detroit our team, and we're actually a worker owned company. And so coupled with yes to be profitable to stay afloat, stay as business we have to make money, and we have to be profitable. But it's a low profit. And so as Nell three the challenges are. Doing things to where we're we're not only looking how can we maximize profit? We're saying how can we maximize? Well, being you know. Okay. It's not treating people like machines. It's we sponsor floating therapy for the veterans on our team where they're going, and they're they're working on their own mental health, and we, you know, have an hour paid lunch and we do yoga meditation, and would you leadership development? It's all around. How can we actually create a support system for the men and women on our team? And then there's the piece around. So the veterans on our team once a month. Go to a veteran shelter one block away from us and support the veterans there, we do leather workshops sometimes is the pizza part of the show for we'll make keychains you'll make goods the first hour the make something for themselves with the veterans in our team of doing that give back to the veterans there. And then the second hour we actually pay them living wage to make something for us. And so we've actually hired veterans directly from that shelter to work with us and within one year, they become a worker owner of our company. So that means you're literally and figuratively being part of our success. You're owning the things you're making and you're part of. Innovation. So if anything you can see as a way to make something better to do a better to be more community focused. They have that agency. And literal ownership to be a part of making that happen. I saw that you have personally taken part in Goldman Sachs training business development training. So I mean, I'm just curious there do here pressure from people who say maybe like, hey, I'd love to invest in your company. But you know, I would do it only. If you switched your business model. I mean, do do you hear those kinds of things like I share? We we've probably gotten fifty knows from people from an investment side of things because either we're we're too risky. We don't give them enough profit. Or they want us to look more at maximising profitability and not so much the soc mission. Like, well, the story is great you sell some stuff. And so those those aren't people we want to part with anyway. So we wanna par with folks who share our mission share vision for creating community love resilience. And so from a an investment standpoint from a Goldman Sachs perspective. Those were conversations around. How can we be as strategic as we can from a business perspective making the best quality products? Having a best interactions with customers with partners. We work with with creating kind of a whole system that that's designed around maximal being. And so that training just helped me think that differently from a business perspective is all my background's nonprofit world. But there's a very different thing when you're producing a product to use it versus producing a service for a certain audience. How are you selling? Your products is all strictly through the website or are you in like retail stores right now in Detroit where in the good neighbor shop downtown, we're simplified clothing market. And we're also if you ever go to my favorite coffee shop bottomline coffee. We have our waltz there. It's a black owned Muslim-owned business in in in that that'd be the cast quarter area. And then we're a few stores in port Huron in Grand Rapids. So we're kind of in different areas across Michigan nine stores in total were also in the Somerset collection the Detroit shop or there, but mostly we're online. So we're online. P I N G R W Detroit. Pinger Detroit dot com. And then we're also Easter market every Saturday, I understand that you guys have established some sales goals and everything for this year. Can you talk a little bit about that? Sure. So the biggest thing is we have a lot of men and women who want to work. We don't have the man for to bring on an employee. So the goal is look like being profitable. Like, we have our loans have gotten very from where they were we have a very small amount of cash to work with so really being officiant our processes, we want to be able to hire five more people in the next year to do of variety of different elements were I can't share it now. But there's some really exciting things in. It comes to some of the we're Vance minutes, we want to be participating in and some other kind of collaborations that we're looking at. So that's kind of some of the growth goals is like growth in impacts growth in product offerings. So people waiting for the governor shoes for a long time. We're real excited unveil those or really excited offer some other products people waiting for. And then it looks like just bringing the money that's necessary. To sustain the current team and to grow that team. What's your pitch to somebody? Who says, you know? Wow. These are nice shoes. But you know, they're expensive. I mean, the the mayor shoes I think are over three hundred dollars. Right. So I mean, why are they worth it? I guess there's two pieces to the one is if the next time you bought a pair of steiger's you buying those that would look really good. And last for the next fifteen years, they'll be worth, you know, if you could rissoli your sneakers, and then you the fact that you knew they are handmade by hands of US veterans or Detroiters. And then the leather was also supporting the Detroit auto industry. So those three elements coupled with the fact that sixty five percent of the cost is just labor. So that you're paying a living wage someone's making thirteen to twenty dollars an hour handcrafting these products than the majority of all the hardware is American made. So you're supporting the the rivets and eyelets you come from Louisiana. We've got the shoelaces are coming from Brooklyn, New York, the leathers destroy like. All the aspects are all done with a lot of intention -ality. So you're not just buying a an expensive pair that's marked up. It's ex direct to customer. We don't currently have the retail locations for sneakers because right now it's much the cost to make it. And then there's a small margin on top. Jaren. I know a little bit about the struggles of trying to launch, you know, your own business and get it to fly and everything. I mean, you're you're describing, you know, it's difficult. You're not drawing the paycheck. You're you're bartending once week and everything, but I mean, are you optimistic that this you're in it for the long haul and you feel good about this hundred percent every day? I start off the day visiting what we're going to create and what the impact is that we're able to create. So I'm a higher percent optimistic. I believe my entire being that what we're able to accomplish he's going to be hundreds of jobs across the country. But starting in Detroit, Michigan that are living wage jobs that are worker owned which means that equity is the core of what we do that. Well, being as maximizing all. Frans that we're going to be able to Donnelly produce things that are a little bit of a more accessible price point as we grow and have more equipment and have more scale. But then we also producing things that people need that are sustainable that have a closed loop cycle. So that we don't have to throw stuff away whereas way we create things that last that are made with care that are supporting people like Nate another makers on our team. So that we can all together thrive, and we can create together Detroit that actually works for Detroiters that makes her neighborhoods stronger and accent maximize. Being. All right friends. That's going to do it. For today's episode. You can learn more about ten Detroit at Pingree Detroit dot com as always thanks so much for listening to daily Detroit.

Detroit's Proposed Marijuana Ordinance Explained, w/ Councilman James Tate

"Daily Detroit is brought to you by the community support our work at patreon.com Daily Detroit. The city of Detroit has been watched closely by those interested and involved in the Cannabis industry due to the city size and its voters off overwhelming approval of recreational marijuana almost 70% of residents were behind it back in 2018. The Motor City will almost assuredly become the Hub of recreational weed in Michigan, but the city has taken a while to draw up local rules getting a proposed ordinance together just this week. So what's on the table and how does it change to ensure detroiters many of whom were prosecuted through the War on Drugs have a shot at the financial benefits my guests to dive in on this is Detroit city councilman James Tate. He represents district one on Detroit's West Side. That's north of I-96 and kind of bisected by Grand River and he's been the lead on this Citywide project after that. I'll share a couple quick things to know today. I'm Jerry Brown. Happy Wednesday, and welcome to episode six twenty two of your daily Detroit for October 28th. 2020 Detroit city. Councilman, James Tate district one welcome back to daily Detroit, sir. Thank you should have the appreciated. Let's dive in on this proposed marijuana ordinance. Some people give you some arrows for taking a while on this one. But looking at the materials, it needs a lot more developed than some of the other ordinances. I've seen rolled out Statewide. What was the thought behind taking the time with this? Well, you know, it was it was very easy for us to just you know, except the switch on recreational marijuana in the city of Detroit. But what was most important in addition to just flipping the switch? It's was to make sure that we provided an opportunity for Detroit is to have a chance a fair chance to succeed in the industry in the city of Detroit. We look at where we are right now with medical marijuana facility. We only have I mean and and we're just going by birth. The union Detroit if there's 45 of them that are currently open and operating in the city of Detroit and very few of them are detroiters. Now, of course, we don't want to do use race and that's the certainly not would not want to go when you look at a city of Detroit that is 80 + percent African-American to only have four or five in the depends on where they are this week four or five African American businesses in this industry in the city of Detroit just seemed out of whack. So what we want to do in focused on again not race-based, but city-based we want to make sure that individuals inside of the city in the city of Detroit in which struggled through the War on Drugs that you know rabbits are are sitting in the the eighties and nineties and now we have a visual were making, you know, pretty good living off of the same plant that incarcerated many families and and transform negatively their stability. It was important for me to try. Yep. To identify how do we collectively as a group became a city put more focus on not just opening up facilities for providing equity in in the industry. So it provides a fair shot for detroiters to be able to get into the industry and actually succeed right now. When you look at it Detroit is the overwhelming, you know, they have them as the security outside edge or you know janitorial cleaning up but when we talk about ownership, that's when you have a chance to have generational wealth and the goal should always be how do we improve the lives of residents in the city that goes far beyond just being the consumer having ownership having a real stake in the business. It creates an opportunity to have transportation. I just would have family but the city overall wage cuz we are you know as a city a multitude of small families Tech create what we call the city of Detroit. I love this place don't want to go anywhere else and we've got to make sure that we have the opportunity Jeff. Every industry that we can't especially a brand new industry essentially we've got to make sure that we provide the best opportunity in the city of Detroit for those who live here and and and definitely those who stuck out that often. You know War on Drugs just say no, right? Well, especially considering how overwhelmingly Detroit voters supported this, you know marijuana in the city. I feel like people looked at it went not only is it something that people want to consume but it's an industry that you know, frankly. There's a lot of people with a lot of knowledge within the city is very much a lot of knowledge. You know, I'll tell you one of the challenges that we we often confronted in the ordinances, you know balancing the desires of all different quote unquote Steakhouse. So you have you know, people who are in the industry, they have certain desires and goals lift those who are trying to get into the industry but have been frozen out in some kind of way. Yep. It's through lack of resources or maybe lack of connection. And then you have General residents who also have many different classes as well. But I'll just say General residents who you know, maybe support of cannabis, but it just don't want it in their backyard. And then you have those of course who just don't want candidates to be sold. They think it's you know, the evil drug, whatever all those negative things that we've heard in the past that mindset is still there with the population of individuals, even though or from whelming Lee the voters went to the polls and voted for or recreational marijuana. We've got a balance all those and and like I said, we had about twenty different versions of this ordinance and I think we've got some things in there that are going to make each took a class of those individuals. I just mentioned some of them that they're going to like some of the items and they probably not going to like other things and that's unfortunately the nature of legislation and a name. Human nature a lot of people been looking at the city because it's going to be a hub of the industry with the expected number of licenses. How many licenses are we talking about? And how many license types one of the things I thought was that it isn't just about say a shop but there's so much more to this. Yeah, there there's a lot of their ten license types that are available and the one that gets the most attention of course is the name what's typically calling for a provisioning center or a a dispensary. That's where you sell retail marijuana related or candidates related products, whether it's the flash or some other type of product that's derived from the plan. But you also have you know grower that's a license there's a and that is the person who grows you have the process of those are the ones who age transform the flower into gummies or some other type of edible or some other type of form of cannabis for consumption. You also have the secured transporter either the folks who transport. The Cannabis from one location to the next and you've got to get a license for that as well. But not talking about small amounts. We're talking about moving from one major facility to the next then you have the safety compliance facility. That's where the Cannabis is taken. And what they do is they do testing to make sure that there's no harmful materials in it pesticides heavy metal things those Nature's and that has to be that is one requirement that the state may was. I'm glad that they did to ensure that the harmful elements that in some of the counties that we've seen around the country does not infiltrate it's wage. Then you also have the designated consumption miles. That's the place where pretty self-explanatory as where you can consume your cannabis one of the challenges that we found in any places that has recreational. Marijuana is that way you will have let's say tourist they'll come into town and they want to consume cannabis to go out and go to a retail location and then they have nowhere to consume dead. So they go and they may consume in a car or they may go and consume in a park or some other public place. We wanted to combat that and provide an opportunity for individuals to do. So in a safe environment that is definitely control and someone can identify if you know, maybe you've got had too much for you to drive right now. We we need to to monitor that so that we're looking at ahead. There's so many aspects. You're right people think about the distribution place, but you've got all of these things that are frankly not just important to the industry but opportunities for detroiters and for business. Absolutely that took micro business is the one is the least expensive but you know for some it also provides some of the largest, uh, risk micro-businesses vertically integrated you have to do everything from top to bottom at that facility. So you grow you process and you can participate in retail at that particular location. You can't purchase or anywhere else you can only do a job. Business at that location rounding out the last two we have marijuana event organizer and that is someone who you know, you would contract to create an event at a particular location and has cannabis being consumed potentially at a designated consumption lounge or some other location. And then you have a temporary marriage license and that again similar to what you see beer gardens and some other type of uh, Gatherings where individuals are able to consume a third product this app allows for that same concept but only for cannabis-related products. So I'm I'm excited about it. We we also have we made sure that we had cats because remember I told you about the other people who support it. They also have Tom of NIMBY ideas not in my backyard. So we put caps on our some of these licenses more competitive and the licenses that we believe May if they suck. We are not capped that they will be over saturated. And of course the top one is that retail establishments that we talked about but everyone sees and knows about and we put a cap on that at 6:35 license has designated consumption lounges. We put a cap of thirty-five of those licenses and micro-businesses. We put a cap of thirty-five on those as well. I'm not certainly not saying we're going to stay at those numbers forever, but I think this is a sweet spot. So to speak where it's safe to venture out and identify and and and we can grow from there. I took place is going to be in them grow from those categories. You mentioned a good number of them have that Detroit Legacy component. What was your thinking behind those that do and those that do not I mean wage it seems there might be a difference in demand for how technical they are thinking about something like safety compliance facilities or what are your thoughts do I mean, so it is very highly all of these are dead. Really technical you start talking about a retail establishment, you know in a highly regulated industry, you know, you you one slip-up can cost you your entire business when it comes to the federal government and wage. So all of these have to have you know, Eagle Eye inspection and that type of care that's taken as a business owner, but you're absolutely correct. When we start talking about safety compliance facility, you know, you can teach someone really quickly how to do certain things being someone who knows how to test products maybe not so much but again based upon the the tub screening that's out there. It may be easier than I believe I just know that there has not been a huge demand not just here in the city of Detroit but Elsewhere for safety compliance facility. So something like that would make sense for us to try to put any uh-oh Bonds on it because we want, you know things to to to flourish. We want these licenses to be utilized in a proper wage. Our goal is not to suppress my goal is to open up and make sure that we provide opportunities for anyone whether you live in the city or outside the city if you have a goal a dream to be a successful entrepreneur and the Cannabis business welcome you but we also just as important I would say for me more importantly. I'm I'm interested in ensuring that detroiters have an opportunity to drive in the industry that is located in the city that they live in and that's important. So let's talk about those Legacy detroiters and kind of how you define that because this is new ground. I think, you know, I'm familiar with those 51% resident requirements for constructing projects and things like that. We've seen over the years. Could you walk through what a legacy detroiter means, you know, like being a shorter absolutely has its perks being a legacy detroiter provides an opportunity to get it again a minimum. We make sure no less than 50% of all licensed. Will go towards Legacy detroiters, but we also make sure because we knew that the the cost for these licenses are pretty expensive and not because we wanted to be but this is just the industry standard and we cannot charge as a municipality more in actuality than it costs to conduct the service. But when you look at that sheared number that that price can go up. So we're looking at potentially $5,000 which is not uncommon but detroiters will pay 1% of off of the licenses types that are available. So that's one of the benefits that we made for a legacy Detroit Legacy Detroit is also will have an opportunity to Thursday. The chance to purchase city-owned land at a 25% of fair market value. That's huge many of the entrepreneurs in the Cannabis industry talk about the FAQ. Vineland finding land purchasing land is one of the most difficult aspects of it. Cuz once you in let's say you find the property you go to the person who owns it. Once they realize that it suck don't in an area that's on for Canada in that price gets jumped up jacked up like five six times. So we've seen that over and over again. So we want to address that issue as well. We're still working on identifying partners that will assist with the financial challenges that are out there whether through a grant or a loan because we know the start-up costs for this industry. This is admits and tremendous. So we're working on that haven't gotten all the way through there yet, but we're in the talks with private lenders and focusing philanthropy and we certainly have their ear off talk to us a little bit about what Legacy Charter is a legacy Detroit. We got three ways to to to be determined Legacy Detroit and all of these you you have to have lived in the city of Detroit. For at least a year prior to you apply so lives in the city of Detroit for 15 of the last thirty years and the resident of the city of Detroit for a year prior to your application. That's one way the second way is lived in the city of Detroit for thirteen years of the last thirty years and you're low income as defined by the federal government would still have to have lived in the city of Detroit for at least a year prior to applying it in the third leg and we know how again the War on Drugs if rabbits families, we have to make sure that there was some element in place for those who have been previously convicted of marijuana convictions and someone who falls in that category, you must live must have lived in the city of Detroit for 10 of the last thirty years. But again that off last commitment I will climate rather is that you have to have lived in the city Detroit for at least a year prior to your your application. Obviously. This isn't a done deal yet. This is an announcement and anyone who thought The city knows that over time things go into Council, they get shifted around that kind of stuff. What are the next steps? And what's the timeline you're aiming for with this? Yes. So we are in the process right now going through the city council process. I'm hoping that my colleagues are are going to a supportive of her overwhelming support. But of course, there's some you know, always thought that have to be uh address and you know, most of them have just seen this document as a Thursday last week Friday last week. So give them an opportunity to go over the number of pages that we have here. But we are it's now what's in the process of the committee public health and safety and they're going to be having a discussion on this ordinance on November 2nd. We are a city council. We're going winter recess on November 24th, and it is my goal to have this ordinance approved by that time because the log We wait the longer it will take for us to actually enter into the industry cuz we still have to get you know, make sure that we have the capacity from an internal side to ensure that we can handle the sheer numbers of individuals that are going to be applying and so we're telling folks. Once this passes we won't you go to our civil rights inclusion opportunity office also known as Creole to get certified check. If you're a Legacy Charter you believe you qualify as a legacy detroiter run down there called engineer emailed them after this gets approved because that's when we will begin certifying legs Detroit is the three different cycles of application and review. The first is for legacy Traders. The second is for those who currently have open medical marijuana facilities, and then Thursday is for those General applicants don't fall into either one of those two categories. So if the timeline that we put in place actually goes through with no dead. Major adjustments for my colleagues we can see licenses the issue in in July of 2021 councilman James today. Thank you so much for your time. I really appreciate you walking listeners through this proposal and what you're looking to do and yeah, thanks so much for your time today. Absolutely. Look forward to the next one and I would love to come back on and cuz I know I am done yet. You have a long way in this conversation and quote unquote fight with cannabis, but I think we're on the right track on the right track. All right, here are a couple of things to know today. We started hearing stories that said we got a bunch of positions aren't feel people aren't getting out in the street. The Census Bureau wouldn't disclose any of this to us. They wouldn't tell us how many enumerators were there. They wouldn't tell us how many houses had gotten too. But here's what we did. No. The publicly reported information which is called the self count when up faster in every city in America during the non-response follow-up than it did in the city of Detroit. Cleveland was well behind us when the non-response follow-up started Cleveland went way past us which suggests that there were people in the streets working in these other cities in a far more diligent way than they were in the city of Detroit. That's Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan at a press conference Wednesday. He appeared with US Representative Rashida tlaib announcing that they're looking for evidence. The city of Detroit was intentionally undercounted by the US Census Bureau. The census process isn't supposed to be partisan it often is in the crosshairs of politicians. That's because the numbers that come out of the census determine where dollars get spent by government and businesses not to mention representation in log. State and National legislators to leave is also looking into whether Congressional oversight is necessary. If you were a census worker with information one way or another on this both Doug. And in fact, we've provided a phone line and email address 86620 count or info to count. My guess is that this is going to be a story cult following up on later a small for Matt Meyer own specialty grocery store is starting construction Thursday on Detroit's near South East Side River Town Market on Jefferson Avenue in the Lafayette Park neighborhood will create about 60 jobs when it's done in a little over a year when this project was announced a couple of years ago. It was going down an apartment development as well with a couple hundred units, but those plans were scrapped the 16 million dollar two point two acre project will also have one hundred parking spaces received a number of birth. Incentives as well, you know, a lot of quick note to respond to comments. We've gotten about this development as we've talked about it before been kind of following it and I'll just tell you it is not a grocery store desert over there off both Lafayette foods and Harbortown Market are nearby but they're just not chains. If there is one of the things that I thought I knew but over time learned differently doing this is that Metro Detroit has a real love of chains like a passion for them. It's almost as if if it's not a chain, it doesn't exist to some folks which just kind of blows my mind anyway to me. It's fun to explore the parts of the region that I cannot get anywhere else. If you want to dip your toe into that for grocery stores. Try honey. Bee La colmena in Southwest Detroit been shopping there for years Super tasty. And if you have a favorite place email us at Daily Detroit at gmail.com. I for one would love to know about it. And that's it for today's daily Detroit home stays. Thank you so much for listening. Take care of each other and I'll see you around Detroit talk tomorrow.

I mean, like, you shouldn't I hope you don't feel too bad. But I know that it sucks. I mean, this is the backdrop for my talk show. So I know what it's something that you care about cancelled. And you just sort of there was no formality to it. There really wasn't. It was kind of an Email into a phone call, really. Yeah. Wait was coming. Yeah. You I knew it was coming from like kind of just the way the release happened and which release the second season. Oh, so you felt like a lack of interest in the way they were premier. They're like here come we're gonna we're gonna put the power God behind the second season meert, and they pushed us to to June from February. Because here comes guy came out. Nobody knew the show was back. And yeah. I was like that. Well, that stinks. Yeah. It's I I have to imagine. It's like a break up like they don't want to. They're like, maybe this is maybe we are in love rhino any need it. Just sounds like sort of like not to empathize with the network. But like I've been in that position where I'm like the signs are subtle, right? Move dinner to lunch. You're holding hand hands watching TV separately. Photos of your hand to hold the very warm feel handpick. Yeah. I do not send him should. And when did this happen? This happened. A few months ago. It was recent. Yeah, I'm sorry. Oh, literally. So I started watching the show, and then it was like, well how many and then I go third season. It was like regrettably wasn't coming back. You just found out. And it was like sort of your again, I'm not this isn't like actually actually we found out a little bit before that. But we're, but we were told to keep it under wraps. But not not not like we found out a year ago. But if found up maybe we found out I know that what that's like four months before people knew, basically, exactly. Hardest part is whenever it was like. I don't know, Mike. I'm not forcing this when my wife, and I were getting divorced. I was married before this marriage and somebody people just make these offhand comments. I'm like, how are you man is pretty good fucking your wife, and like my wife was having there. One of those. Can't wait for the new sees the cheese like. You're like. To put on a happy face, which is one of the worst areas in the world. It really is. Like, you feel you're fully lie, and you are lying. You know? I don't know. I do know. And they're making you like. Yeah. Exactly. You Tim and you find out at the same time. Yeah together. No. What was your approach the bad news? How do you process? Bad news. I process like we both kinda proc-, well, Tim, Tim more rage. So than me, really. Yeah. Tim's. He's got rate. Cast him as a rage. Kasim is a sniper in a World War Two movie. He would be greatness in a movie or relied like. You know, it's the far far away. Kill that's easier. Well, yeah. Sure. But he's got the maybe I just think he looks like berry pepper is that saving private Ryan doesn't. But he's got that like distance kill white guy. Look. Yeah. So he raised a little bit more like a little bit. I mean, we both. We both raised like just the frustration. Can it was was? Palpable. Yeah. Then what did you do? Do you? Eat your feelings feelings drink. Yeah. We like we like our beer, you know, hot or cold cabin. I love a good. That's what I like about the show is that there's like absurdity. Sort of like a anything. And by the way, it's kind of crazy 'cause I just bought the season. You know what I mean? Yeah. So it's like it's still working for them. I I don't think you'll see any of that. I know isn't that weird? It really is show keep generating a negligible amount of money for them. Well, maybe not maybe not now. But like also kinda like exist in the thorough. Also your stuff exists. Yeah. Yeah. I mean to me it was a new show. I was watching a new show, and I was enjoying it. So I'm sorry that it's not coming back. But I did like that you guys found a way to sort of be. I was watching vows like is this a sketch show. I was like she only saw thirty seconds. Because it was you in the women were kept hitting on you and Sam the man like a good skit, and then other times, it's obviously more of a narrative. But like, you guys would do whatever it took kind of for a good laugh. Hot beer what? Living here. Well, a silly what make you and we call those like with those moments. We call those hot beers because. No whenever there was a joke. You like a hard joke. That's kind of out of reality or the newscaster's saying, I don't normally comment, and he does that for every commercial. Yes. Where did you get that love of that sort of rule breaking? It reminds me of Simpson's Simpson's. Yeah. Yeah. That wasn't a leading question. It wasn't like did you get it from the, but no. But like. Simpsons? Principals going funny. I shouldn't have been able to hear that over the intercom. Exactly. Do don't even get me. Started on jokes stand up for jokes. And things I've worked on that. I'm like, I could take you back to the Simpsons joke. Taught me make that Joe. Yeah. You'd be stupid. Not to learn from that. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. And it's a little naked gun two. Yes. Exactly.

And then like another side there's a killer seeing that eyeball, and like, oh, you're he knows how to get to that secret room. Yeah. Killers know their ways to secret killers know, the whole way out it is that's sort of a fucked up thing there. Our sexuality was framed. At least mine were similar age. I think you're thirty five thirty. Okay, I'm a little bit older. But still the idea that like sexuality was something that you got away with stole from women. Yeah. Exactly.

But it's a guy chasing a girl and he's grabbing her by her. Oh, yeah. Yes. Yes. Yeah. This is what because those movies were written by dudes from the fifty. We're hearing are sexual ID now and the millennial or whoever's next we'll do it in ten years. Yeah. We'll always be behind. What were you going to say they'll be idea that these? Plus these movies are really about. Like, you said like like Smith like taking somewhat getting away with something because it was bad. And they're like, what age were you? When you started to put it together that like women were sexual and like. The caveman like go get a people bathing eight on their sexual, but I know this and I'm looking from heart, right?

Do you think your parents and her parents at all were over sipping tea is going like they're gonna fuck? Fuck. It clearly gonna fuck. Like they've locked. And she was a little bit older than me. My sixteenth birthday or no. I assume they got my driver's license as soon as I got my actual, driver's license. Sixteen to like sixteen and a half a little older than like little sixteen. Yeah. I take my dad's car go pick her up. We drive looking for a motel out and like no every like the skis motels and everyone's like, no, we're like what around please. You're like. No, no way. You wouldn't give money American American cash. Do it very young teens like this is going to come to buy. Yes. This is a news story. Exactly. Or it's probably going to be some like Senator some coming here. We don't want right, right. Your pick up condoms interested in the part. That's usually left out of of story. It was like when I went on my first date with a girl with a woman. I went from my marriage to a very safe easy relationship. Those very natural to like, my I like, I'm gonna take this girl out like thing as it was like a friendship that turned into a thing. This was I asked this woman out, and she seemed like of the world and like grown, and I was like do I bring con-? Yeah. I ask everyone I knew and I didn't get the same answer twice. Really some people were like, no, she'll have them and somebody will definitely on ahead of time. I don't know. I'm always hard. So. Hold on. I think I did not bring them because I couldn't get over the fact that it seemed presumptuous that I had it. Right. So I was like if she's, and that's what people told me they were like if she's bringing home, she's probably. But you know, that's not always the case. Right. I've I've run into the other way. And it's like you picked me up if you don't have the equipment, and then he just leave. We can't well. So line. How do you do handshake? That's right. Give them a lolly real real real. Bob, and you go I want you to get something out of this. Take a second lollipop this for you any ride home on your unicycle. Juggle, and you can't wait to just crank went out to the thought of wet might have might have been. Did you bring bags? I I did you did of course, because we were. It's like a specific mission that we both had right till like, we're going to do the deed. Did you talk about sexuality with her? Like the pressure to lose. It wasn't like a American pie American pie thing. Like like we like conflict talking about like when we have sex. It should be this this and this when we have sex like or just inefficacious way or just like a real. We're your friends having sex with her friends having so you felt left out. Honestly. No. But we're both were just so ready to go. Yeah. And equally so too. So it was like, right. I like it was there was no sort of real feeling like, hey, you wanna you wanna do you? Let's as you. Jogging and next thing. You know, you're looking to your right, and there's someone jogging Justice fast game gate. Wow. You keep trying to lose them. But they're right there with you. And you're like we're gonna do this again on Tuesday. But it's going to be exact. Yeah. Okay. Understand. But being theater person. I feel like correct me if I'm wrong, it seemed to me from the outside people rule up a little bit faster got a little bit more sexual and there were. The energy was around where you're pretending attending. Be my wife. A real into improv. Where you're my girlfriend and. And the motel does give us a room. Facing reality. But I mean, so what that is true. That was your experience that there was a little bit of something in the air. There's definitely like sexual energy around here like that theater group like and there's the emotions you're in touch with emotion. The new share? Yeah. I mean like football players don't give monologues writing. They don't go. Like, this winning point has uncovered in me. Feeling of victory spot. Like, you're out there like expressing and trying to feel things and share things I have to imagine that's very appealing to others. I mean, it still is yes. Still what people kind of look for a certain kind of persons looks for that. Exactly. And also like a football player is interacting with girls in their activity all the time. That's right. You know, we're rehearsing in building sets with the whole time. It's the theater department or the only kids that seem like they have jobs, and this whole hog words like you have this life guys have hammers and nails and trying on outfits together. Microcosm. Going on over here. Still like my mom's still reading I heart. You on my napkins and you over there like all right and the scene I can't smoke, but I can hold this pencil like a cigarette. Mamat players incredible. So the sex in the motel I have to we. So we didn't get motel. Oh, no. So we drove around for like hours. And finally, we you're you're in a bed on wheels though since call it. So we pull up all in the middle of the day, and like deep in the mall and like. And so we have six in my day. Are. Pattern you fucked in Santa thing. Thing that ever happened in the sand down exactly investing. Ever wills? They're gone. So we top the Bill can be sadder. Yeah. Made in Detroit Saturn. I don't think I don't think. So either look what happened to them. Exactly. Shame. Shame. Shame. Sorry when it's like so young. The first time as well. Joke about this. I was like friends at Lahser virginity when they were like thirteen I was like, I think it's legal for you to remember that. You can't you can't think about that anymore. Not okay. Your head is is. That's right. It's a legal you had consensual enthusiastic. Verbal consensual sex in the front or the back seat. That's in a passenger front-seat passenger friend her on the only reason I ask is that's in the pilot of the show, very very funny. Thought of it blew me away. I was like a perfect drug if you haven't seen Detroiters it still exists and you worked really hard on it. And it's funny. And that girl on top joke was first of all I couldn't believe you were allowed to do that on comedy central. Yeah. They they were very cool about there's a lot of stuff do that sort of stuff Turner around. And I'm like. And I'm like. Yeah. What I? So for those of you haven't seen it. It's basically guy who's clearly just discovered how to have sex with somebody where they come first. And then you do go real fast. I. I also died when the girl comes up to you guys at the bar, and Tim goes, what are you interrupt people because we don't know you. The funniest thing to say somebody so real you. What do you mean him, and I would do second city in Chicago. Tim is married to his high school sweetheart. Know Heather been married for ever they met when they're like sixteen seventeen or sixteen eighteen so I was single second city. We do a show go across the street. And you know, like, wait. I know where you're at. Oh, yeah. I know that bar Corcoran right across the second city or we'd go to public house or we go to old town house. Yeah. And you know, we'd be hanging best friend. We did every honestly we hang out seven days a week. Really? Yeah. But then girls women would come up and like kinda Florida Florida United flurry for your back and Tim would get so mad. He'd be like what? Okay. Thanks picture. My god. So that's a hundred percent real. And I would be tip. You can't do like, I understand whatever. Good time with my friend. That is so funny. I know he's not here. But was it. I mean, you get married that young. And then you start sort of becoming famous. I mean, he's not here sort of unfair. Yeah. That is let me put it this way. I was married when I started doing stuff on TV that never occurred to me that just wasn't my reality. And I wonder if he was sort of like. No on Tim's. Like like is never stray was me. You know? That's the worst night. No. I'm out there. Being a good guy. I also just didn't care about sex like that. I only cared about comedy. That sounds so dorky, but like kumail is the same way no memory of single kumail Rolin. I can't imagine a single Camille. Can you imagine me, especially if you didn't know me when we were that age, we were even it's like, this is like fifty times the man I was so I might as well been handing out lollipops and riding a unicycle because we did shows. And then we I I look back on it like the purity of it. It's like we Woodworkers. We just wanted to be like do the set talk about the set. And also, we weren't funny enough to ever think like that he's the aphrodisiac. Get me. I did my pack hero. Yeah. Phase open leaders. But you were in second city, which is still a big deal to me. Yeah. How did that come about? So you're in Detroit with not too far not too far. But the second city in Detroit is right. I I knew that. And I found I don't want to go down to Troy. True is gone now too. So yeah, it clearly maybe you got one in Amsterdam. And he went open in the motor city. Tell me about what it means to Dan is is boom, Chicago, that's not it's not gonna. But there's a lot of like. What do you call it over lamp? Oh, so amber Ruffin second city, but she did boom Chicago. And like I say I thought it was owned by the second city people. I remember when I was married. I I heard about that. They were like, yeah. He's living Amsterdam for six months. You smoke weed. Everyday improv every night. It was like, yeah. I read the scriptures every night. Never why was religious, and it was newly married, and I was like I'm not moving like that that rock and roll thing. Did you have that where you like I'll do anything you're in Detroit. I'll do a signature rate. I was there. Like, there was sixty Vegas. I wanted to Vegas. I'm gonna do anything. I love it.

I'll get your phone number. We'll write the script this out this relationships going to work. So tell me what were we talking about your in Detroit. You're like, I'll do anything. He did the cruise ship cruise nightmare at first. It was terrific. I was like twenty three twenty two twenty three living on a boat. If your birthday on the boat. I had I had my my birth in the book, and I got on there in December. So I got there right before Christmas and new years didn't know anybody Christmas and New Year's kind of sad. But my birthday's in January twelve we've yet Christmas and new years. Lived lived on that ship. So we got we got. You. Always eating lemons on Chris Lewis. Yeah. Any of the citric acid is gonna keep that those things. Deal and and parrots can smell it coming. You didn't know that? I didn't know that keep them on a Bill cut their own legs off because would in the blood is good to keep skirt away. None of this. How could be actually how sad is Christmas on the boat. You said that was very sad. Really? Yeah. I love Christmas. I really do like seem like he loved chess. Phil, thank you very much. Like also, I'd like you to call me on Christmas. Fifteen ninety nine. You'll be happy phone call. I really, of course, you're with your group at my group. But we don't know each other. Why how how does that because we all got cast from different people were from Chicago to from LA? I was a Catholic from Detroit. So like, I like to like, you know, they hair and no pair. You know, your dark movie it really heavy. So you have no friend, and then you get there. And you're doing greatest hits sketches. Exactly. Right. You know and improv set at the end of the week. And did you guys bond fast? We did we came together pretty quick. Yeah. But not for Christmas. Not for Chris Christmas time for actual real Christmas dinner, like ride a love you. I don't hear like soft. John Mayer cover of jingle bills. Please. But I mean, you were twenty two turning twenty three and that is sort of looking back that is kinda when you want to if you're going to kick Christmas in the teeth, you might as well do it before you're old enough to know what real pain? Exactly, I don't know that I didn't mean like if you're gonna kill some darlings. I was working bennigan's in Chicago. And I would work New Year's and you'd work thanksgiving all these things because who fucking cares you. We were just trying to do comedy. Yeah. Right. Exactly. And that was the thing. Like like like the sacrifice of it. I didn't even think about it until it goes on Christmas. This is the saddest thing, right? Part of it is that like I also find Christmas incredibly credibly say like a little Christmas. How sad it makes you feel the melancholy melancholy of it. Well, my favorite Christmas. I'll be home for. Yeah. It's a good one. I love beautiful sadness. Little chris. I'm sorry. That's the one. That's yeah. Have yourself. Mary little business. We'll devastate me. I am not none of the songs. I have slaved ills say that. They all have strings. A Franks mattress. Sing a sad Christmas song. Yeah. The week and he's alone. And he's on stage. Like empty a cigarette or a waitress. Wasn't working. You you don't celebrate the birth of my Lord. But then he's still say, you're still working. Have you seen the family stone? I have not seen the family stone. It is the Christmas movie for you. Yeah. Here's why it's the sad Christmas movie. But it's not sad. Just for said sake. It's not like babble. Yeah. It's not just like they opened the Christmas. And it's their own seventy. Chino? Come. Screaming at his religion. It's like Buta. It's it's I swear I would love to have the guy who made that movie. It is a man I'm not just assuming he wrote and directed it. Because I think he his mission was to make the song have yourself merry little Christmas into a movie and it prominently features. There's crying we watch it every year five different points, we cry. Yeah. And you'll love it. Oh, good cry. Good cry about the watch this thing in February. I think it's around movie. Movie it'll making Christmas. Yeah. You're gonna get there. When you have my number. It takes me two things a PDF of the first draft of the scrappy. Yep. Okay. I like it out. I'm good with dialogue. But story is. And Pacino mirror PDF and your reaction to that movie. So you said it started off good off. Good fun. It was like a party, you know, on this cruise ship. I worked we would work five hours a week and the rest time free time. Yeah, I'm twenty two and just on these islands. It was a tropical tropical. Yeah. Saint Lucia and Samawa and Barbados all these places and like hang out with these dancers the other entertainers entertainers. So like, it was just paid to party, essentially, right? It's really fun. Did you gain some LB's? I did because there's buffets. It's just gonna say phase nonstop beer, nonstop every just like constant constant rice it free. So like, there was the buffets were free get out. There was dollar beers in the crew bar, but my first contract. I did too contracts. The first contract I was like I'm making more money than I've ever made in my life. Yeah. And I started living like I was on vacation the whole time going to drink drink drink. Guinness. Oh, no sense of like because I know that's what young men do. There's no sense of my salaries inflated because this won't last forever. Exactly. Exactly. He goes you're in the major leagues now. So like don't go in behind the music yourself. Right. You get paid more for the TV shows that you're on now because there will be years that you're not on TV. That's right. You're getting paid crews money now because next year there might be another guy that's doing this or maybe don't want to get. Right. So you're burning through Catherine through cash, and then at the end of it. I was like, oh, I have saved any money. I didn't save any money. So I went back home for like a month ago from that went back on another ship. Buy time, I came back second-seeded head closed down, actually. So you were at sea at C, you came back haggard and smelling, exactly. Exactly like what happens peacoat like. The second city. That is funny. I just saw the boy voting barrels onto ship rolling them. Boy, you wear is the second city say store. What do you mean? Israel Jews anymore. Richard. Sports. Short for. Proper. Dick. He didn't tell me we're playing object work. Okay. So he came back, and it's gone came that reason to go back. Yeah. Exactly. Your girlfriend of those came back live with her for a little bit. Came back moved in with her for month. It was a pretty toxic relationship. Really? Yeah. Why not because you were always on a boat personalities personality is kinda like butted? I sometimes wonder if performers pick those early sort of crazy ones, not crazy. I'm not calling her crazy relationships crazy because you're sort of like, what am I going to get married? Him. Honestly, like, Heather, Tim. They are the most it's an unfair relationship because it's like so perfect. Yeah. Like, it kind of hurts all the people around them when they're trying to Dixie like, surely I haven't Dayton. They'll be perfectly like, right? Heather like in. Heather's like, an electrical engineer, and she has been forever. So like, the longest time Heather was like, the breadwinner, and Tim Tim could go in and play around at out and like so he could take do second city on Kerr. He can do cruise ship. Yeah. She's at home working on a light bright. High stakes stakes. Removed out peg goes dark. I understand what it actual engineer. Does. The boy with the payroll the woman with the light brag, I got it. Visit. And then she writes out her little pink slips on an. I've been the workforce. What it's like to be in the real world. So yet. No, you had that enviable relationship. But maybe subconsciously you pick somebody that was just like, well, it's just fun. You know? And like, I think like, oh, this is so tumultuous like so high energy like is passion, you think? That's what it's supposed. Yeah. Then Tim's over there going like, look she made coke this issue. See them through the window carving, a ham rain with your crazy. Know, you're both crazy. We're both raising the crazy relationship. There you go. Crazy crazy both. So you were in a toxic thing in what way was he? Here's why I'm asking change. Maybe your answer. Some of those people are listening in there in weird relationships. Yeah. I haven't to be in one of those annoying wonderful relationship. So I need to remember some people are hurting goals, and you're in a bad relationship, and you sort of feel hostage every movie you see is about your relationship every comedy show. You see it doesn't matter. So like, what was it? And how did you figure it out and get out like, well, there's a lot of. I'm trying to be as as anybody knows who the person is way, Shelley Duvall. Shelley? Goes the gag order helium. Sorry. If the host brings it up. No. Doc about show. Free scape? There's like family stuff like stuff with her dad was like pretty. Odd and bad, really? But that bled into the relation to the reason ship because like like a lot of coq au like, she got bad habits from the Debbie. I think I. Yeah. And like bad relationship with with alcohol and stuff. Yeah. And so it was really wild wild. Exactly. But then like also like. Jealous and envious as well. Per example. We like she had a grandma who was like a dance who was like an old like a dance instructor. Yeah. So she was like the third tier of that. So like, always like. Flapper flap. I understand picturing Hanley always say performances and stuff like. Not. So we would do karaoke together. Sometimes like not the same thing. I'll be the first to say, I'm not bad at karaoke. I'm in fact, very good. I would. I'll I'll I'll do like a bible help my friends. Great choice. It's fun. Joe cocker spaniel cocker style. Raspy you had to. Gotta go. Taste impression. Kind of. I a little bit of impression that turns into like a real. I wasn't ours. Tried to make you more comfortable. That is an improviser. The shit out of tossing up. We'll be able to do it without stopping the recording. To the face and pretended that it made you fall asleep. That is pure talent. What a treat. I see that. You're kind of slumping. Laying around like this slumping like falling off the couch. But like, we're both laying like prints on top of a white panel. Very relaxed. Look. Long. What is the long is? It prince waited on top of white waiting for someone to come in. Handles her low and finally like, no. I know. I actually came in a couple of times prints. You're putting on you. Manifesto? Into say good evening. Waiting for anyone to come eighty one? Just catch me being. Did you get sucked into that behavior? It certainly like would. I I not really, but I certainly want to escape it a lot. Yeah. Or like a lot. I wanted to just not hang out with you for right now. And if you break up with that person. Yes. And was that frightening. Yes. I'm scared. Everything have told me about like seventy it's like a one two three four. Instructor criticizing your karaoke. That's what you were saying. Oh, yeah. Wrath on your mic other people in in. Critique it flat. Those it wasn't. It was good. It was a good performance. And makes my mind somebody else, it'd be like, ooh, actually, did very well, actually, I like the crowd would like go nuts over that person. But so she was sort of jealous even of other people. Yes, people would be having a spotlight, and she was jealous of you. Yes. Did she think you were cheating on her constantly? I don't think she thought that. I don't think she thought that the person that you're reminding me of when you said like jealousy of that sometimes would bleed into like to I'm worried that you're being unfaithful even more like as we already covered. I've never been that sort of person. Yeah. I don't think there was ever a concern of that. Or maybe it was I feel there's no way she wouldn't have like scream that right one. Of course, she would have loved it. I've got a new criticism. Last night that vote because you aren't going on a boat. She wasn't worried that you were like live in the boat life. Yeah. Famously call it they call it ship life. Really? Yeah. But the came to visit and everything, and you know, what actually let me take that back. There was a a thing of when she was on the ship. She was like what's happening here because I was friends with all the dancers. Oh, she can't always so terrible to I'm sitting here oblivious, but like know. Yeah. I like to see this show called sea leagues. We're all God. We're sitting lag. And it's not a crab buffet. Borghese? Exactly. But we're like sitting in the front row kind of off to the side. Oh, my God, every dancer is like like waving at me and like Winky. A little extra. They're like showing like we're friends was saying isn't this cool your show people? You know, what I mean real show biz? He did you do second city Vegas because it's like you did I wanted to you did. But yeah, lived like real show business. Like, you're hanging out with the all this picturing the dancers in their pasties. And they don't even think that that's weird 'cause like say like our brother. Yeah. Exactly exactly show business. Rush business. Exactly. But like they're on state like in the performance like. Yeah. Winks in like kinda like horse high-kick in like as like, what are you fucking everyone on this ship, which if you were let's let's let's rewind the tape and everybody in our minds picture. The performance of sea legs SAM's in the front row with his girlfriend, and you are fucking them. Right. Think these dumb dumbs covered in glitter are gonna shake their booty a little bit extra at you. It's going to be so cold, right? You're going to avoid you. And not look at you. That's what you do. Having a secret affair. Exactly. Could be so bold. Let's let's hide in plain sight. You're talking the whole cast. That's just the kind of twenty three year old. You are that on Christmas. But brother was white Chris. Joke. No. Jingle balls. But you think I'll be homes for Christmas. I'll be home for Christmas. Man. Do I oh you do? Thing you'd cut to you. Texting me phone number. In five years when I have some sort of Christmas. I'd love to do a Christmas special. I wouldn't you love to love Christmas. I'm gonna take it off of me. I want you to do. Well, I wouldn't talking with Tim like Tim, and I want to do like a Christmas special. And I think that's a great idea. I wanted to go there. I have not it's amazing those hot Christmas tips. Oh, yeah. From valerie. Well, I knew family stone. But Colbert Christmas is the best funniest Christmas thing and it's half hour comedy central. It might be forty five minutes because the commercials. So it wasn't our. I don't know. It's so good. Yeah. You know what? I did. See I remember it. So well, guess oh, it was terrific and like the journalism and Christmas special. I was I was in that one. What do you need so much? He had one on his he was on coal bears on bears like this. What made me remember? Yeah. But I'd I want you in one of those Hugh, Hefner robes xactly. That's what you smoking pipe. Yeah. But like, you know, I think you can still do a pipe on TV, right? Yeah. Sure. Not a cigarette. It's got bubbles got bubbled this bubbling pipe again. That's a Simpson thing exactly. Anymore is the fluid. Not start footnoting the Simpsons. Deep. There's so many like even like veep. Timings for Richard. That are like I'm thinking of it as a Simpson's ship like my favorite Simpsons joke is welcome to itchy scratchy land, the place where nothing can possibly go wrong legal Rodham. This the first thing he's ever gone wrong. It's my favorite joke because it's like seven jokes all in one. And just boom, boom, boom, boom. Everybody's smokey bear. It goes only who can depend forest fires. There's two buttons says you. You. Me. Part pushes you and the animatronic smoke. Goes you have pushed you the meeting. Me. Correct. The answer is you. I. We just watch the one where Lisa and the family go to the beach. Oh, yeah. Wants to redefine herself. Yep. Yep. It's a timing joke. So really belongs to the animators or whatever. However, they did it. But Lisa is trying to pick her moment to say hi to the cool cats. That's fucking see. Turns. Only someone who understands what it feels like to be socially awkward, right? That joke. Sounds like a Woody Allen joke. It's always trying to say hi to people who've been like a Burgess who come out. Like what you see? It's better. So good. Oh, okay. So we're on the boat. We have the girlfriend. She's how did you break up with her is one area? We could do that. We could talk more about the boat and got old the performing on the boat. Oh, well, you know, we didn't break up even then we broke up after a came back home for month, then win back on other ship, and we were still together well on that ship, but those sea legs. And you know what? I mean, the dancer, right? Yes. I hope we don't find your ceiling. You want me to be sick the whole time saying, I love you. Okay. Let me to take your DRAM. I mean. Don't you get it? This rivers over I ended this. I've abandoned riff. So you went on another with this woman. Yeah. You know because because also cowardice also easier. Oh, you know, I I haven't Excu leaving. Yeah. Yeah. I'm going to be honest ship, right? Right. Right. Right. And then you went back to make more money because you weren't gonna blow it again. Exactly your second contract. Yeah. Until about the beer's then there was the one dollar beer dollar beers in the crew bar and live in the U. So the way the way the timing of the week would go is like on Sunday be ported. The passengers would all come on Sunday set sail. Everybody's kind of like wobbly legs Monday. Everybody's kind of figure out how to how to be on a boat. So on Monday, the cast we go to dinner and all that stuff Tuesday night. Our show would would would be everybody ship within see the show and then from then on your celebrity on the ship. You know, really? Yeah. 'cause everybody's like, hey, you're the guy. Are you doing the same show over and over you in providing doing the same? You do show one night a seven o'clock in nine o'clock. But that's a whole population for that one week. With them on this moving city block. So like on this thing, you're the guy from the show on Tuesday. But no show Wednesday no-show different show on Wednesday Wednesday. We'll see lakes. You remember? Butts. I'll remember I bet the performance wanted to go earlier in the week if they wanted to be like dancing on the boat Tuesday. And then you've got to be kinda hot hot hot. Then that means you couldn't walk around without somebody being like a guy like. A. Care. Actor like, yeah. You know, you move Wisconsin. We've got nice basement literally guess quote. I was like no don't wanna move to your basement. Wisconsin was offering you. Yeah. No, no. Prison living my basement how you cruise by selling the bone. There's good money and fresh. No question. Who's the person air financial situation these bones for why are you paying so much for them enough? You like send a man. The man so fearless of murdering ways the way he gets people. Do you wanna live my pace? No Payton switch. He goes. Oh, you want me to murder, and you think about it. You say yes, sometimes. Yeah. Enough that the business can get some on cruise. Yeah. Trying to get my numbers up. Today. And I love it. So the second cruise the contract was different dip dip because like I was like, I know him living what this means my, and I was like I'm gonna move to LA after this. So how did you make that choice? I second city was gone Detroit was gone. They hadn't hired me second-seeded, Chicago or anything. So I was like well, all right. They don't have a job in Chicago. I'm going to try and just go, and you're gonna just give it give it why shine on the main stage when you can come. But I mean old school model again, we're similarly aged was go to Chicago shine in the second city review, and that does seem to be a little less necessary days that seems to be like the eighties nineties not that you can't do it. Let's ended up moving to Chicago in doing torn company and main stage. That's where I did get my agents planning on moving too late because the producer was like will you haven't job in Detroit. You don't have a job in LA. Oh, so then when are you don't have you have Jeb Chicago Detroit closed down. I was like well, all right. I don't have a job either place Ray move to somewhere and hit the ground fully running. I know how to do this. Right. And like, I don't know if it's going to be a direct link to this oil might as well pay your dues in LA. Yeah. Exactly. What your what did you're not crazy girlfriend? Think about you planning on saving up enough cash to move a four hour flight away. I I to be honest. I think the thing was already so dismantled by then we weren't really talking about what the future was going to be isn't that funny? You're reminding me of my tumultuous relationship, and when things were real bad you'd start. Here's a good relationship. It's like March, and you'd be like, what did you do for the fourth of July? Planning christmas. Look like, let's go to London. Crawl in big mouth. I don't know. When things get bad. You don't even wanna make plans for the next, you know? You know, like, I don't know they go sideways emails that we don't know. So you weren't talking about the future. So you went three to move. And like, you know, kinda wasn't even thinking about that sin moved to Chicago. So like like, but wait so tell by telling him second city, I was like, you know, I'm moving away. Like, the touring company. Maybe. But can I can now have my gear set on moving to LA doing during the tour company. So yes, I do. And they were gonna lose you. That's so funny man now that I've like cast things and stuff like you don't realize that the powerful, I'm using quotes people on the other side of the table are sometimes just as nervous and worried about everything is you are exact they're like, we can't lose say, you gotta we gotta keep him like your twenty three and talented, but they're banking on the idea that you don't know that you're great Perth bright sites because that's also why they put me on the cruise ship to keep me bullied. Yeah. That's right while second seed Detroit clue they wanna keep you in the bullpen. Exactly. Keep the metaphors mix. I'm having a metaphor mixer. All these different coming. I'm gonna meet, and then they fuck later in the parking lot of a mall consensually, essentially and enthusiastic the gearshift right by your name. So you you played chicken with second city. I did dude. I did. That's awesome. Which very glad I did. I love that. Because I also like at that point. Like, I was also in this phase of like everything started get bleak had this impending doom from living on this cruise ship look out in ocean. It's just nothing but water, and you're like, I could die at any minute here. Yeah. Like what a rogue wave like Godzilla or something code you. Yeah. Exactly. Like what what if an like this'll be it. And like who would come to get me? I'll tell you a wurley bird. We're really bird. Yeah. They're going to send a wurley birdie. That's how long it takes to gas up and send a wurley bird one of the crew cast members of show that already had its performance. Maybe it was the girls from sea legs a little hut to under under there. I see it slowly coming. Jessica Curson, my friend was on a cruise ship, and she got second they had to they had to airlifter out. But then sometimes you're in a strange area. And so that we're really bird is landing on hospital. That might look a little babble. Right, right. I can reference fully Simona. Public. It's not gonna be cedars. Yes. That's an interesting dot. So that's sort of freaked you out all of a sudden just start thinking like I'm gonna die out here. I really fully was like, so you gotta frayed. It wasn't a joke. It wasn't a joke. When you really don't like being is slated. Yeah. And I sort of feel myself app atrophy in the shows because like I just knew every move of the the best of shows kind of improv shows also started become like, right? Kind of like if this was a Simpsons montage would show you trying to be in sea legs exit. Come out like that. Shoulder slump that didn't work. Old Lou never like shuffled off. And then the show, and then Moulmein goes I like. Great. But it's in the world. The world would've happened. But you were atrophying atrophying. I was like I don't feel like I'm growing or anything. So it was like maybe Elliot's the right move. Yeah. I felt like kind of brazen enough to be like, no. Yeah. Do your thing. Well, you had been stretched out to thin do something a little the good, desperate. And then. But then they gave you the job with torque. Oh, yeah. Yeah. They toured for two years really them. And then was like, we know why Tim no Tim was on red co on Greenville. There's three touring companies red blue and green separate separated us when did he get it before you after you he essentially the same time like so he'd moved from Detroit Bernie inert clause. That'd be like guys were Bernie. Good together. You're the only. Burton ernie. What I say Bernie in her and I was like. So long like say Ernie. Three times. And I was like my head. But why did you kind of know what I meant I entirely, but in my head I was like wait learning. I want Bernie t shirts. Right now. I mean. Yeah. Bernie and Bernie Sanders runs for president. And his running mate is anything. I mean or just like or if he doesn't run out Bernie knocking inert. I am inner. Oh, Bernie enter. Wow. I'm in on if you like Indiana Jones, and they just pushed a rock, and there's a whole temple there. There was like my God, they knew metalwork. We thought they were so primitive. Look at these skulls. Buttons. About was incredible Bernie inner that's a joke on a joke after new Bernie. Get bernie. Exactly, yes. Because you have to go from Burton Ernie into Brainerd. Ernie enter so what we need to do lay. The foundation is start the Bernie inert shirts. Now, exactly Bernie as one. And then in six months when he doesn't run Bernie inner take xactly, Scott. Wow. I think it'll be worth it. By the time. This podcast comes out. We have to all ready have already be available. Of course there. They elible. Okay. I wish there's no there's no second. Like, I would make that shirt. But there's a second joke. You know what? I mean, if it was Bernie Sanders, and then would go like, oh, it's funny because it's Bernie and hurt, but it's just a mistake. Mistake isn't a t shirt, the funny thing you might tweet. Burton ernie. They didn't let you say together. Was there a reason for that? No. It wasn't. I think they just they hired him. I was on the ship. They hired him to to read co hired me like Rick soon after green co. I played I played chicken again after two years. And I was like, you know, I'm moving away. Because he was also there was talk. Oh, we're gonna hire salmon Tim together for ATC, which the. Yep. Bear mental theater. Experimental theater company. You know, that's where I saw Jack mcbrayer, see, lots of great people. I actually liked the show better than the main stage. I wanted to see more than I wanted to main stage. Yeah. Also, like, you know, you could be cheeky cheeky. It's a smaller theatre. It was a great sky wasn't this guy in. It was a better hitter. It was a small felts. It's where addition for second city in eight shit. Oh, really return. I still remember the other people who edition that did. Well, I still sometimes saying I don't know this is boring. But maybe you like it. Yeah. I watched this guy. He's so calm. I just I'd never seen. Someone addition and be so calm and at one point he he just goes like he's with this very like like a me like a comedy sports ham. Really good improviser and the comedy sports ham is like lead it, and he's like I wrote for a musical called humans and the ham went, oh, boy kind like fake breaking love to hear some of it the wrong way. I'm just this is not getting it. And the guy went where all humans everyone, and that's all he did. And it was the fact that he I'm sure he was capable of rhyming and making a silly or a catchy thing. But he just did that. But he did it with such confidence and like calmness. Yep. I've never forgot. This guy was also like I I've written this song ages ago. Yeah. That's right. He played in sort of real. And it was also kind of like, I don't know. I'm gonna sing it for you. I love it. Also, anyway, ET offered you and you said Jiang. They did. They didn't they oh, they're not gonna hire us. I'm gonna move. I moved to LA you what you did. I was like I'm gonna move. I'm leaving the touring company. Like, okay. Well, hold on. And then they hired Tim and the same day. Not that the day. I was leaving me didn't work. Exactly. You put a little heat. But yeah, I'm not going to be here for power the end discovered, but talented person moderately discovered. But you know, what I mean? Yeah. No, I appreciate but his help for for the for the for the young. I wanted to Cosby voice. Remember when that was tool belt? You can do with the poll now just like, oh, that's a horrible criminal horrible. Look, I'm mourning the loss of my ability to do a silly boy. But the young people do need to know that there's two things one don't be too arrogant. But also don't be too small go always people are going to use you to for to meet their ends or whatever. Yeah. Like, the second city had Ma one hundred thousand people they figure out. Yeah. Yeah. And but for me, I was like, well, I can't a little bit of pressure. So helpful though. Yeah. What the first time I did Cohn and j p buck was trying to get me on Conan. It wasn't him. That was blocking me. But I think it was kinda hard to push me through because as you're saying there's a hundred thousand people they want to do. And then like I did this joke that he wanted me to do on Conan. And I had done it for comedy central and it was coming out in a month or something John Oliver's stand up show. So it put a clock on it. Then I was on in like a week. Like one of those things where it's like is there, can you give us even manufactured reason? I'm leaving the reason the reason and the next thing, you know, you in American sniper your. The knowing the main stage may. Right to the Big Joe to to the top speed. What was the name of your review? Our first review was called. Spoiler alert. Everybody dies. Good second city. Yeah. One. South side of heaven more of a Chicago these sides. Yeah. Segregated chicago. Places in America. It's insane. When I got there. I remember I think I was in Hyde Park that's on the outside. And I got on the bus and everyone was black. Slowly, everyone was white. She has filter all the black people got off. And everyone was white. It was like watching like sands of time. Like an hour glass. Yeah. You can tell it's four o'clock because it's halfway up black and at eight o'clock, it'll be all white and then at midnight. It'll be all black again. That's the driver tells time super super secret was out with that show is kind of teasing kind of. Yeah. Because this is for people losing sounds Chicago's the black parts of which is weird is twenty nineteen and we can still say that's where but weird thing exactly his Detroit that way. Yes. But not southside, well, it's kind of changing. But like the city itself is is mostly like Detroit itself. Seventy percent black. Okay. So the suburbs like eighty two shown Birmingham. Yeah. Birmingham. Michigan michigan. And I was like there's a Lululemon and a RAV Egan restaurant like where am I? Say and people explain to me, that's all the car money. Yes. Exactly. Exactly. Legacy money legacy money. Yeah. So old that Grosse Pointe lot of like old carp money interest. But then the city, obviously. 'cause like when the riots happened in sixty seven call white flight, all the white people left. The city white flight white fly legs. Title white flight, all the white people left left the city. Yeah. No. And so. Suburbs grew out. But with that be an infrastructure that they had like so. And riots also to like black owned businesses. Those that weren't kind of just like collapsed because there was like no one there, you know. And even now, I don't know like what the population of city of Detroit is right now. Like last time I did. It was like thirty percent populated really see built for three million people. You know? But now, it's more because I. Lar- where they shot. I am legend. Now, people are moving Detroit, and like is rapidly growing. Right. So even three hundred thousand I wouldn't be shocked. If it's hasn't like, obviously, that's what we all. Keep hearing that you make a joke about in the pilot that you bought your house for twenty thousand dollars. Like, I think made a joke about it on girls or something where it's like, why are we trying to live in a City New York doesn't want us your why are we going to Detroit and like letting the artistic revolution happen? Yeah. And could that be I mean, what are you the spokesperson? I'm just wondering what your feelings are for your hometown. Well, I mean, it's it's happening now like now even the downtown area isn't I used to be like oh by an office building for a couple of hundred thousand dollars a full office building. Yeah. Now, you can't do that downtown because like realize it's getting bought up. It's like, oh, how the city Detroit is. So massive there are full neighborhoods. People haven't even thought of where the houses are like so cheap. Yeah. Or? You know? That's the thing too. Is a mixed between or or a two ideas of like city growth versus like gentrification like this movie money move in. And then move out the people who are able to sustain life as right areas. Like oh. Oh, that's nothing. Right. But like it's next to person who's lived there forever right now. Right. It's to be a bad feeling. Yeah. When somebody's like giddy that they bought the house next yours, and you're like I've been here since nineteen forty one. Yeah. Exactly. And it's like a novelty or it's like funny, right? Grab this habit. I might buy your house. Dr. Hugh, thirty dollars. Yeah. Basically, what's happening is nuts? I mean, we laugh because we can't cry. Yep. Okay. Well, we don't need too much else to ask about right? But I am glad that it's on an upswing. Yeah. Why why am I what I think there's going to be a soundbite finally paid weighs in on Detroit. And you go like what he said did the city. Did you get good feedback for trying to represent did for the funny thing Detroiters will always tell you what they think we really called detroiter Detroit. Yeah. The joke was there's nothing you call them. So I was waiting for some joke. Like, what do you say? I don't know. I'm a detroiter. No, call Michiganders' Detroiters Michiganders. I should. Detroiters is real thing. And they and they must have loved the show. They at first though, when the first trailers are coming out premiering, and whatever you even know Detroit because that's like Detroit or you're going to be very defensive. Every city every especially maybe smaller cities. I don't know what to say. LA doesn't go. You don't know. You don't know New York. Yes. Boston is more like you now. And then you see the movie and you're like, it's pretty good. It's. Got they showed it in donuts. But then they saw they saw people saw oh verners reference fully Detroit because we filled the whole thing in Troy. Yeah, we're both from Detroit. So like every reference associates say Kaos, like a real thing that chop chop house was filmed in. In cliffs bells because Trump house we couldn't film in the actual chop house proximity. You mean the interior the interior exterior is Detroit. Oh. Everything is in Detroit chop house was in the actual chap house every other place that we say is a place is that place. Lando like land. That's awesome. Landy? I'm like this is crazy that they really is like an advertisement for. Kind of doing the same thing for Detroit, which is pretty cool. Yeah. And does that make you you want to be accepted by your city? Yeah. Well, that's the thing is most important. I was like what we wanna pay proper tribute. Because it's a city. That's also the consistent but of joke like, right? You know, and we're like well like, we're if the joke is that we've hit economic like disparity. Okay. Right. Or that jokes been done? Right. Also, not everybody, Troy's a crackhead everybody trays like homeless full city here and like deserves of light. Lovely comedy. Right. And he did it. Yeah. And it exists exists. New to me, baby. It's new to me. So you got on the main stage thrill. Yeah. We super nerves opening night. It was because I wanted to eight and shows like fourteen. Yeah. Yeah. Tents. Nuts. Did you get any sketches on that? Where you in Tim, the first two the first show. We did it was like a mandate essentially from this director Butte to know United aren't going to work together. Why exactly ex- asked me why? What about the idea there? What was it Bernie Bernie inert? What about the Verney inert clause? Is they have like he just wanted like theater director like I'm gonna fuck with you. I I guess it must have been that. He had like this this like schedule of like how everybody was showing up in the show's all math and equations, really we would put a scenes either. We'd improvise them where we have sketch idea where we would we would write them, whatever they would always gangbusters always like. Boop. Boop. Boop. Boop. Yeah. That didn't work like what you're talking about. So I show wasn't the best best best best experience. But the director, you know, let's just call it. What it is what it is. Ooh. I am not I'm gonna forget in five minutes. I'll text you have you. But you didn't. So they were that person was keeping you and Tim apart on purpose giving support so weird. But then the next show we did we get to do stuff together. And like so many fun scenes that we was the review the, okay? So the first one that you weren't in a lot together that sort of not do great it did it did it did fine with the next show. It was like regarded as like a good one grit nearly is second cities in the best showing a longtime back, you know, they're back. And you got to be with TIMMY, he had to be what was that? Like what like what was this catch? There was one where we were to. I was security guard of the staple center is like a dummy. And he was like a guy who was coming trying and try out for the Chicago Bulls staple center the United Center. Chicago. I'll never correct you say. Basketball the basketball house Bill. Yeah. And he was like a guy who's just like a full Dole's. I I'm coming on trial for the basketball team. You can't. And maybe they become best friends, and like just so they're going to do and things we do either dummy that thinks he can just show. And I'm like a security guard. Who's like he's like Ryan do this. And that. So you're both both eighty two idiots formula. I love that. Awesome. Yeah. And did you guys riff allied and riffle whole try to make each other laugh? Yeah. Yeah. It's so serious. They're to me because it's such a lace. And I think that was also part of the idea that our stuff was would be silly sometimes. Yeah. We'll know when this needs to be political satire have you like what's the message here? Right funny. Right. That's fun. Like like one of the scenes that we would we would do in the first show. We would improvise my heaven the improv sets and stuff or like in the writing process. Well, we just to Bank managers who on the weekend go to this gym, and we were wearing like, Jim like pants had velcro wastes. And that was the whole thing like cropped crop shirts in velcro wasted pants and the whole thing like fake lifting weights and talking about working at the Bank, and it w-. It was just funny. You know? I can't even begin done. I mean, I'm laughing. Why banks like what was a snippet of dialogue? We're going to read the the MVP. Oh, you mean. Chase bank. Oh, yes. Chase bank. No. Anyway. That's that's my job during the week and the weekend. I'm Jim Greg. Sounds like a character care funny that you guys are like talking and moving very seriously. Your Bank jumps exact these guys who clearly just bankers. I like it very much. And then is that where you guys when did you start talking about making a TV show pretty while? We were on tour campaign. Oh, really you've already been kicking it around. Exactly, also, we're in different different tournaments. But we're still every possible minute hanging out. Yeah. It's pro Mantech romantic. Time. And we're like we want to go back to Detroit with something. Wouldn't it be great to do something in Detroit? Like, I'm gonna go back to like, not just show them. Like, hey, we're here. Right. But like comes on ring something bring something it try. No. And everybody was so annoyed with us. How much we talk about Detroit and backstage. Really? Yeah. I guess what? This is a better question than asking you about like the economic re-growth rebuilding of Detroit. What do you love about it? It's such a feeling in that city you've been to Birmingham have been to Detroit. I haven't properly been Detroit in a long time. Now, there's such a heart and the people have such a positive energy. I will say that the guy that drove me just a regular cab from Detroit to Birmingham. We had a great chat is a great line that I asked about Eminem. Like he put up with it. I mean, it was a long ride that's at least an hour ride or something. So we covered a lot of stuff. I didn't open with them. He was very very warm, and I got that. And I don't say underdog as an insult. But that underdog city of like, yeah, we got a lot to offer. And we're and we're still here. We're still here and like looking at the the bones, and like what is there of this massive metro metropolis? Yeah. You know, the pairs of the mid west, they call it like e- like you see there's a full city in the spirit of a full city is there, and it's in the people and there's deprived to that. It's you can't help it might want to want to be there. And like you and everybody in Detroit grow grows up with such a I don't think anybody like grows up saying, I gotta get outta Detroit, man. Like, honestly, nobody they. They feeling. That's awesome. No that seems like such a mid western thing too. Yeah. I it reminds me of Chicago a lot of people weren't like, I gotta get the fuck outta Chicago. Some of the stand ups I knew because we all wanted to be showing you want to show what people in Chicago were just like why would I leave? There's so many in case meets at look at my mustache look at this vest day where Jared year. That is why I knew what verners was. Oh, yeah. Go is prominently featured as well Superfund. So you start kicking around the idea of being in Detroit doing something? Yeah. It wasn't. It wasn't idea. Like, let's have a TV show about Detroit where we're best friends. Right. But just like talking about like doing something in Detroit rate, and when did Lawrence learn EM's. Michaels. So Tim was on was at SNL. And I was in what capacity he was in the cast. I don't let him take offence at that, JIMBO. If you're listening. I not that great at knowing who's guest. Well, no, Tim, Tim was in the cast for the for a year. And then he became a writer for four years after that cast, then right has then. Right. Oh, wow. The better time when he was a writer. I'm sure yeah. No not. I'm sure, but I believe it. Yeah. So he was a start writer good writer, kicking acid SNL. And that's how he got Lauren's attention. Yeah. You know? Well sedates Jason today. Kaz. Yeah. It was both of our friends smoke shakes. Vegas. Plenty milkshakes. Pretty make any sense. She didn't ask milkshakes. He'd be like milkshakes. Yeah. Checks haired your spine. For a milkshake. Yeah. Jason J J. No checks. Today. 'cause what now, but we're, but you know, the three of us have become buddies because he would come see shows at second city while we were on the main stage sets and stuff. Yeah. Just come and sit in the house come and sit in the house, you know, and to Tim went to work at SNL. We all of us were still friends Tim and Jason became even better friends out there. And Jason was like you and Sam do show together. Wow. And it's like, I'll produce that's good. We can in. Jason producers, Jason produce. Yeah. I knew it was in the pilot. That's he's a producer executive producer on the show. That's also we took it to Broadway. Video the pitch and then like Broadway, we took it around. What was the pitch? I can't pick. The pitch was to pals em, and Tim or best friends and. Not really. It's it's funny that I thought of Portland too. That's another Broadway. Video I think. Yeah. So like a good duo and a city seems to be enough. You know, exactly. And then it is a love of a place and eleven a friend is more than a lotta shows have to go on. Yeah. But they were they were open receptive quick to the idea. They were and like some of the early ideas rations of the show was like that the two of us were like two guys in a parking lot booth in a cramped space image of being in Cranston talking. But then like we'd go off on adventures, right? It wasn't like a lot to that. Right. You know, seems like a second to the idea. Exactly, you're like, oh, this whole unlikely. Labor in there together on stuff. He's got the Nichols. Right. That'll be second. He has the nickel and like the be talking about something the two of you. And then every now, and then you pop out to that. Right. Or we do it as a blackout. We reveal at the end that there's been someone there. Exactly as you're talking about. Balls or something on your asshole? And then you go, here's your receipt. Exactly. I understand sketch. Gabby maybe you go up and there's a bird. Valid and seen any hall. We just watched it to go. Yeah. He ever by a movie, and then you find out it's on Netflix. Yes. What happened? We watched any hall. She hadn't seen it. She loved it. Yeah. Have you seen a reason? I have not seen any home. I sell you haven't seen it. It's really good to watch. It. I'll watch it. Of course, you know. Woody Allen it. Complicated. Put get that coming through man, mentally complicated on. Let's walk out this room. But he rhapsody complicates. So then you pitch and you make and you make pilot pickup pilot pickup. Yeah. How many central make boom boom, boom. Boom money, boom, boom. Cancel cancel cancel cancel. Now. You're VP's people veep. We just raptor last season more vape. No more viewer Freeman free again. Yeah. Does that feel? Cold and naked or exciting to the show. You're not even enough breeze. Liftoff? He's calling Meghan. I yeah, you're exposing. It is another shows. Well with me and Adam pally, it's called Champaign Il, Adam pally, Adam p Ellie. Palley show. A do it. Okay. That's pretty close. I don't give Faulk dude. Hiring man. That's we're going to do a show. Basically just turning into big. He's going to be like Sammy. That's what you're thinking. Yeah. Oh, it's good. Adam is one of the guys that gives he's one of the most genuine people I've ever known like he doesn't care in such a liberating, psychologically beautiful way. As somebody who I feel like I'm always tap dancing trade to figure out what people think and expect to me and give it to them. And then you hang out with Adam. And he's just like I don't care me not rude with. You feel have happened. He's always like very thoughtful on the way that he doesn't care as well. Right. Just like well. And if you're gonna be like when I had my Vallon, I had our daughter. He's texting me really sweet things about his kids. And just like, okay. Most is lack reads to the needy on the weekend. Not that. He's like, you know, what I mean? Yeah. One of these just like a free guy. That's really what I'm saying. He's just like a freeze unencumbered if what is the name of the show that you guys called Champaign, Il, Champaign Il. Yeah. Oh, like, Illinois, Illinois, he'll but ill licensed to ill. Exactly, I get it. Exact that's fun. And what is that on its on YouTube premium? Okay. Over doing a second season of that either. So we'll San you might be even more naked more. Exactly. But I mean, do you have other ideas exciting time, it is an essay gives me a chance to like can get to do some stuff movies though, movies will because like. It was always impossible like to. Yeah. Be available for anything. Dude. New friends. I'm just saying got nothing to worry about all you have to do is tell Hollywood you're moving to Detroit and watch those offers. And then be offer only. But it's a really little. But just to avoid the audition. Look good news. Bad news, bad news. He's offer. Only. Good news. The oppor- is to walkers and a handshake. A day. No, that's like a real. I know you're not a millennial total total total. And he insists the handshake is at the end of the job one Walker on signing one Walker on ramp. He says he wants to earn the handshake. Great British Bego. Listen, look, how precarious that mug as on that ledge. I don't do that. I wanna do. Are you going to get it? Katie. Thank you. Well, let's talk about do you. See it. I see. Now, you see it. Yeah. Feel free to have Pete home show. There's dozens of them. I do. I wanted to hear. I'm a big fan of mugs. The first time I got a second city shot glass, and it was really important to me. Oh, yeah. I wanted to bring home something from second city and be like one day. I addition poorly but worked out better worked out better is this where I can't go and say who's laughing now. Yeah. And for no reason Sharona. Turn it di-. No, no. She's not dead. Okay. Good. Okay. Good. Then let's go. Mitzi. Sure, she. Oh, yes. Similar insurance Halpern, the Halpern founder of improv a limp. Sure. And helping. Yeah. Showing Halpern is still alive. Yeah. She's and I have no ill. Will I jumped theaters on purpose because this was an absurd bit like two men were the Bank lifting weights, isn't let's talk about the Lord. Do you believe you raise nonreligious, an navy and your ATS what kind of eightieth are you? That's a question. You've never been asked me. What I mean is are you a? Mystery person like a we don't know atheist. We don't know eight basically what is of. Yeah. Occasionally, you meet the that's like, no, I'm a little bit more activated. I'm saying if you believe in God, your fool, and then there's eighty s ago, look, we don't know what's going on. But I don't think there's evidence for and I'm like, I think it's it's to make rules based on just guesses like that. You know what I mean? Yeah. Like, I'm certainly certainly won't be like. What are you doing? This is over. I do a lot of structures of religion are silly silly and destructive. I. But I like it's like we didn't really bother to think about it. Too much. We had someone else think about then that's a powerful position. Then power gets corrupted. It's always corrupted, and then it's used in this really gross way. Whereas the atheist is especially the mystery leaning eight just being like, we don't know is so much closer to what I would consider a feeling of true divine contact than someone who's just like, I know I worship at these hours and the rest of the time I'm jerking off to age appropriate pornography. Battling is my day. But if you said looking at the rain and just go like what the fuck. I know we know what rain is right. But I'm just saying like that is much closer by saying this man squeezes the sponge above you. That's and that's what it is. And it's it. That's right. The the unknowing position I think is a healthier state of consciousness than the knowing rigid grotesque thing. That's all what am I preaching? Getting we're seeing that he goes stuff to go. I know and I belong, and I'm right and you're wrong, and I'm saved and you're not whereas the atheist might look at a paper Cup on the ground. And have a real connected moment posted someone who's got it and they're just coasting through life waiting for death. When their beliefs will be rewarded. Yeah. Also, the idea of lake God grab this Cup and put it down here in so you can walk in and see it might. Well, why why all that the Cup had so many other moves before this drink from that Cup? And the truth is crazier is more delicious. Yeah. Yeah. Talking about atheism as a black man in like, a black man and entertainment is such an if he scary thing because you feel sometimes like, oh, if I let people know that I'm an atheist black Hollywood was shut me all the way out. He thinks I think so. Also like in comedy. I remember hearing jokes and stand up that were like, they're no black areas. Like black comedians song about no black. Hey, Theus are the only black atheist stuff. Yeah. There aren't well. That's not. That's not true. I'm telling you what I'm basing that on are you saying, there's fewer black atheists. I think so or at least being an atheist is not like like religion is such a part of Christianity coach apart of black culture right apart of black identity. I did. Yeah. And you know, I it really it's almost like Judaism, there's like Jewish atheists. There are a lot of Jews atheists, but there's still holding onto the ceremony and the identity, and there's there's a lot of suffering in both those groups and that and the faith helping them through the suffering. So I'm thinking out loud. But is there something like you're turning your back on something that carried us through? I think that that is the idea is that how could you this how we? Got through. This was the mindset that helped us not right? Of course. I mean, I don't know the mindset that kinda let perpetuate leg, right? Totally slave masters. Teaching you that God said, it's okay for would be slaves in. I'll I'll read the bible to you. Right. You know, let me tell you that your situation is ordained date and that actually Faulk cabinet. Capital? Fuck not just the f the whole the whole thing and the exclamation point at the end. Yeah, that's interesting. That's interesting. But that said I love Christmas. Yeah. You love Christmas. I just watched that. I was watching the James Baldwin documentary. Oh, yeah. And when you see Malcolm X and Martin Luther King together. Your you feel your heart pulled both ways. I know Malcolm was a Muslim. So he wasn't an atheist, but there's something about a Reverend a can we say militant Muslim like a militant? But I mean, I don't find the word militant, I think militant like a judgment judgment. But it's I mean like he was a he wasn't a pacifist. He he didn't wanna just. You didn't want to Martin Luther King? Yeah. So I see those two things, but there's such a fun nece for Martin Luther King. Yeah. In a way that Malcolm doesn't have that sort of as much exactly as well. As like feeling I'm an atheist, but then like brilliant minds are passers like Martin Luther King. Yeah. Brilliant, mind it like a Reverend. You know, I so I certainly don't feel like I am smarter than Martin Luther King. I know. But I just look at your experience my experience exact think Martin Luther I'm going to speak for Martin Luther King would say like it's all about your experience. You know, what I'm saying like too, many people too many of us, and I'm speaking for myself are imitating the transformation that clearly someone like Martin Luther King had undergone. And if you haven't had it, you have to be honest about that, and you need to be honest about your feelings about like Alan watts talks about this like pretending love God. He doesn't put it this way is bullshit. Yes. Fucking shit. What are you doing right pretending to love somebody? Like, you don't. He's so funny. Yeah. Love this thing scared of this thing like your intimidator, you're afraid and all these things it's like get real. And that is such a beautiful that to me feels closer to real divine connection being like, look, if I'm being honest. I don't love this yet. I feel like Martin Luther King did he'd found his truth. Let's not be doing an impression of him. Then this exactly I feel so much. An imprint you feel that you were supposed to. Yes, do this. So then you would just play the part. That's that's my whole church. Ing was pretending like an inner transformation that taken place, and that's why I don't swear smoke or drink or fog, but it hadn't happened you get right cart before the horse. I've made this point many times. But it's like you're acting. Holy. When that when your heart hasn't changed, but unfortunately in our world like I'm intermittent fasting right now. Like, I just mean to eat for an eight hour when I'm really loving it 'cause rain likes direct orders. And I'm noticing that like I'm losing weight. So I hear healthier because I only eat for eight hours. Day. I catch myself eating more, it's vegan. But I'll still eat more pizza. Could I only eat for eight hours a day? So I'm going to do this. So I'm like, do you really care less about your internal health as long as you look skinny? So it's the same thing that was happening in church like as long as I'm like front, but inside I'm like aren't gonna. Harry. That reminds me I'm working on that. By the way, I'm not going to resign to that. I'm trying to healthy as well. But like that that reminds me of my time in the church, so beautiful BU, baby. Yeah. Valid. Death over ghosts. And all that stuff who cares over. I think death over. I mean, maybe there's an energy. You know that persists in lives who like like what what do we do when we're when we don't realize you're asleep or whatever right exists, still, right? Who knows is does does your. You know, are these electrical synapses like just going on? And then it's just the proceed perception of that. Or is there something else there? I don't know. Right. You know, I certainly don't know. Right. And certainly won't bother me until it happens. You know, what's interesting going back to won't bother me till it how great the okay? So take the far out mystical idea that we're all one like if you just want to sound like a hippie you say like, it's all one, right? Yeah. But and then scientists also believe that everything was at one point. Oh one. That's the big bang was with the singularity was. So that's like a scientific it's a theory. Yeah. But it's fun to say, it's a scientific fact. But let's say it's a pack for. Forget fact, we agree. We agree that at one point everything was all won the eighth Theus te and the mystic agree at some point. It was all one the difference of story that we tell ourselves that one that thing expanded into big bang that we domestic and the and the the rationalist the materialists differ have different interpretations that mystic says it's an illusion my separation from you where this couch in the air is an losin. I've just sort of forgotten that I'm still the singularity. It's still one thing undulating and thinking itself, right? And the material says, no things are real. I'm real I can test and quantify and replicate that I am not this couch cushion, so that's that's basically the different. But we do agree that it wasn't one point one. It was one thing. And then when you die you go back into that one thing, that's the thing is still doing its thing. And like even on the the rationalist. Deal. Like, I don't even make disagree that like even if like things are separate from each other are one they part of the same Mike equation. That's right. It's all molecule. Matter would mean, nothing doesn't exist that existed. That's right. You know? That's right. And then the phenomenon of consciousness is admittedly a mystery to both groups the mystic might call. It your soul the materialist calls consciousness. Right. But we're both. I just love bonding with my eighth Theus veget- saying we're just talking about vocabulary. You don't even let you're talking about the idea like with the big bang happens in like once, you know, the mystical bleeps in me in there. Materials they were actually the mystical is not rational, right? And I I the differences transaction one big thing happened in one group says there was a guy who other stuff and other ones like them just all happened from there. What a kid would always drive me. Nuts knew who made the Bank, right? Who would have made God what what made God God God. So they concede that space. We neither group of aids. That question really interesting. Yeah. The I don't think there is satisfaction for our brains. Yeah. I think that's one of the weirdest things that I've learned is that you have to surrender. I sort of look at my brain as an employee like I know you'd like the full understanding package. We're just looking for Jan. Unfortunately, no matter what your belief is. I don't think of a God outside of an apart from this that made this. I think it's this right?

Auto Insurance Reform May Be More Selfies Than Substance

"This is the sad part. You know we all remember Governor Whitmer and a lot of the you know. The people like the Mayor of Detroit all taking credit for the fact that this new law was supposed to stop this this kind of discriminatory non driving factors that insurance companies were using Jack up rates and It's still going to happen. That's Steve Kirsten. He's the head of Michigan Law and has been named one of Michigan's top lawyers by multiple publications. Today's episode is a response to many listeners. WHO WE'RE SEEING THEIR AUTO INSURANCE RATES GO UP METRO DETROIT anywhere from ten to thirty percent? That's in stark contrast to what politicians including Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Republican Senate majority leader. Michael Shirke promised on the big porch on mackinac island earlier this year. They were reacting to mounting public pressure. Sure to do something about auto insurance rates in the state they're the highest in the nation but so far it seems that it's turning out to be more self fees than substance our guest Says that things like redlining and gender discrimination will continue. All legally Gersten lays out a case that Michigan Electric Leaders Basically got outplayed by lansing lobbyists obvious leading to a situation where affordable car insurance especially in the city of Detroit is more theory than reality. Today's Daily Detroit is episode. Three eighty-three of the podcast released on Friday November. Twenty Second Twenty nineteen. I'm jeter stays that conversation with Steve. Gerston is after this word to remind you you that episodes like this are only possible because of our members it allows us to give a platform for tough topics that most potential advertisers would rather there. We shy away from support independent media and become a member of daily Detroit at Patriotair Dot com slash daily Detroit. And thank you so joining me on the line is Steve Gerston from Michigan Auto Law. He is a lawyer. He is an expert in the ways of of auto insurance. And what's going on in our state and I wanted to talk to him because I mean this is something that's been on our radar for a while longtime listener is a daily Detroit will know that the the auto insurance thing has been an ongoing story and ongoing saga and were not done yet. One of the things that was kind of rolled out earlier this year there was there was supposed to be a major savings for not just detroiters but michiganders' around their car insurance Steve. It's looking like that's committee not the case. Now it's it's not going to be the case Unfortunately I think the politicians took credit for a lot of things that are are not going to happen and a lot of these savings. These guaranteed savings if they are parading as well as getting rid of a lot of the worst of the discriminatory non-driving factors things like redlining and gender They're still GONNA be around. So how are they still going to be able to read line. Because there's a lot of deal made about a fair deal for detroiters detroiters mayor. Mike duggan talked about all this stuff. Touted savings I mean. I did some math when I was up there. Even the proposed savings really wouldn't cut Detroit's car insurance that much and that doesn't even seem to be the case so red linings phone issue. And it's it's separate from the savings promises they made. That are also are GONNA be very disappointing for totally different reasons so for for the red lining unfortunately what they did the lobbyists and lawyers on the insurance company a lot smarter than the politicians. I think. So let's take redlining ZIP codes The new law says you can't use zip zip code anymore and and you can't but guess what they can do They turned around and created their own. QUASI ZIP codes and they're now using territories territories Now you may ask. What's the difference between a quote territory and is it code and the answer is there isn't one They can still charge more. The insurance company doesn't like where you live and unfortunately for a lot of your listeners that live in the city of Detroit insurance companies don't like them very much and that's that's why they charge them so much more. Do we have any transparency on how these territories are are drawn to me. One of the things we've learned with the legislature is that you know you may have legislators. Here's but it's all in how you draw the lines and what happens. Yeah now the insurance companies are gonNA create their own their own ratings So you know with with territories for example you know or for example with credit scores. You know they're gonNA use Information that is widely available to them And create their own defacto ways around the new law so with ZIP codes. It's going to be territorial ratings So they can still church people. More who live in places like Detroit with credit scores They can't use your credit score anymore but they can still use your credit information your credit report your are they can create their own credit scores. using something called insurance core and charged these drivers more as well. So you know. They're still going to be. They still have all these loopholes that they created in this new law makes a perfectly legal if you ask me. It's unconscionable but it it is perfectly legal and you know unfortunately one protection. Listen that people have in many other states that we don't have here in Michigan. Is You know in other states like California or or you know a lot of other states doing away. They just can't do this. You know there are laws on the books and in Michigan. We don't have that protection. So they created these loopholes. And they're gonNA keep doing. Yeah so how did they stop this. In places like California most states I think have have some kinds of protections for consumers and it's it's one of either two ways it's either legislative protections or it's through the courts and and what you see when you start looking at these other states is pretty much split in many states. The courts rule that this was you know violates. The constitution violates equal protection clause and due process this is discriminatory by the insurance companies and then in in many states where I think you'd probably have more progressive state legislatures The legislature took action on their own and said that insurance companies can't do this. The other thing I would just know is Insurance Commissioner in most of these other states is much more powerful than the one that we have in Michigan so I guess yes. That's a third area where you know you've got insurance. Commissioners in some states like Missouri which is not particularly a progressive state. But were you have insurance commissioner. They can exert a lot more power to stop a lot of these practices by the insurance companies. But you know listen. This is the sad part you know we. We all remember Governor Whitmer and a lot of the you know. The people like the Mayor of Detroit all taking credit for the fact that this law was supposed to stop this kind of discriminatory eighty nine driving factors that insurance companies were using to Jack up rates and It's still gonNA happen. So playing devil's advocate. What about about the argument that some insurance advocates and others make that will they have to do this to cover their losses or that? There is a justified business. Reason for this this all right I think I think my head will explode if I try and take the devil's advocate position on behalf of the insurance companies. Because it is it is it is on on its face discriminatory. Because what you're saying is is that you know whether it's use of sex whether it's use of credit scores whether it's it's it's red lining what you're saying. Is that to equally safe drivers with the exact same driving record that an insurance company can discriminate on the basis of completely non relevant non driving factors and Jack up the rates that an equally safe driver. In let's say southwest Detroit. Who's never had a car? Crash is never ahead. Traffic violations will now have to pay two or three times more than another driver. Who let's say is is unfortunately let's let's say white and lives in one of the fluent suburbs and and that is why it is on its face discriminatory now? There is some data out there that says that people of lower social economic means Are More likely to make claims especially smaller claims but the reality is and this is the ugly part of it is insurance companies. Just don't like doing business in cities like Detroit and that's why they can charge them so much more for the people that live are there and and they get away with it and they've been getting away with it. There are other parts that honestly you can't defend at all. I mean you know take gender you know the insurance turns companies have been charging women and widows more than men and widow worse even though there's a law on the books actually that makes legal. They've been doing that. And this is the crazy part. Is that women. Statistically are actually much safer drivers and then so it doesn't even make sense using using data to explain why they've been why they've been doing that but they have and and even getting away with it by using some An an excuse. Another loophole for for how they've been describing this type of insurance so your point about not wanting to do or not liking to do business in the city of Detroit resonates with me as a longtime city resident and knowing saying what our listeners have been sharing with me over the last month that they are actually not seeing savings. They're seeing premiums. Go up now and then I have cases of commercial folks who are seeing things. Go Up as much as thirty percent with with their coverage and then and they're all sharing with me that oftentimes there is only one choice to underwrite their policy which basically creates a monopoly and eliminates. It's all competition. What on Earth is going on? I thought you know both sides of the aisle told us we were supposed to have savings. Yeah so what your listeners. We're seeing right now is as they come up for renewal Their insurance companies are raising their rates in some cases by up to twenty five percent even though the new law aw hasn't even taken effect yet and even though under the new law things are supposed to be going down a confirmed case of thirty percent. I have a confirmed case of thirty percent. So what you're seeing is But everyone is seeing these big renewal jumps on right now of their car insurance and Like you said you're seeing rates even higher than that. So why is this happening. What you have unfortunately is is that the insurance companies came up with some really clever ways to get around on the mandatory savings requirement of this new auto law? That like I said hasn't even taken effect yet. The biggest loophole is that the law did not take immediate perfect. So Governor Whitman signed this on May thirtieth of this year much of the new law. The bulk of it takes effect next year. July alive one twenty twenty so we're seven months away right. The the issue is because it did not take immediate effect that means these mandatory savings savings requirements imposed on the insurance companies also did not take immediate effect because it did not taking media effect. Insurance companies are raising people's People's race. Right now so they can lock in profits and that way they have when they they're required to chew under the new law to start cutting their now going to be cutting from this higher number so that they can keep their profit margins intact which is very clever are again totally frustrates. The Spirit the intent and the plain meaning of the new law which was supposed to be priced savings for consumers. That's what the insurance companies are doing. And I'll just add one more thing is that even when these guaranteed savings do take effect and seven months. People are going to be extremely disappointed because they've really been sold a bill of goods and the savings that they've been promised Are Not going to materialize realized. Why is that so the the biggest reason is when you're saying that you're GonNa see savings of twenty or thirty or forty percent what people have to realize that that's not a savings of twenty thirty or forty percent on your total auto insurance bill. That's that's a savings of twenty thirty or forty percent of only the pit portion of your no-fault bill and that is around forty percent of your bill so if you can't afford insurance now and you're talking about a savings of twenty percent of forty percent of your bill a year from now you're probably not gonna be able to afford insurance a year from now either and the other part is as you're noticing. Is that the insurance. Companies are ready raising rates now before the new law takes US act and areas like collision coverage. which is about fifty percent kind of your bill are going up as liability insurance? So so they're going to raise the other parts that they can keep raising even as they're applying ABC's reductions to the forty percent that they have to apply it to and people are going to be extremely frustrated. There's one of the insurance companies are doing right now that Is is just incredibly dirty so you know. The new law requires that they provide savings based on what their current rates are and With they're starting to do is file as new companies with the department with this with Department of Insurance Financial Services Slightly changing the name a little bit and or INC filings so that way they were going to have a clean slate because under this new company filing. They don't have any ratings ratings history so they don't have to provide rate savings. So you know again. It's it's like it's really really clever. And their lobbyists yes. We're a lot smarter than the politicians kind of crazy when you look at all the things that they're they're doing to try and get around this new law Even this MCA cut by the way that that was in the news. The second week of November Where they were trumpeting this this massive fifty five percent savings the vast majority of your listeners? The the vast majority of people in Detroit are going to see any savings whatsoever because the the MCA cut takes effect. I don't mean to laugh but it's it's so absurd to me It doesn't take effect for for another seven months. But meanwhile the very next day that that this after this takes perfect. That's the day when drivers in Michigan Canal. Finally choose what level of PIP coverage. They want in the sad reality is and and it's sad to me is an auto accident lawyer but the sad reality is most people never think that a car accident is going to happen to them. So they were gonNA choose lower levels of pip and that means that because choosing levels of of no fault tip that's less than the Limited portion that this will never apply to them because phone. Don't ever be able to turn to the NCAA if there ever catastrophically injured in a car crash so it's completely illusory. It won't even apply to to majority orgy of drivers in Michigan. Well this is very depressing. what already depressed. You know. I mean but it's become a lawyer. I have that effect everybody well. It's it's good to talk about this because I think we need to have these kinds of like real conversations beyond beyond what I call fake politician victory laps. You know our role as being watchdogs. Everybody 'cause you know regardless of party. It's important that we keep an eye on what's happening with our money and with our policies the next question I have is. What can people do about this because this seems extremely disappointing especially considering the promotion that these folks have done over the last few months you know unfortunately this is the new law and the reality is if you look at the polling before this new all took effect the politicians on both sides are under tremendous pressure? Say they did something because reality is people hated the Auto Insurance Salon Michigan even more than aided our roads according to a lot of the pulling out there so they were under pressure to say. They did something even though they ended up creating a very he bad law. That is is not going to do much so so in terms of your question what can people do until you know probably two or four years. Now there's some kind of referendum that would give people the choice on whether they wanted to abolish no fault entirely and maybe become a pure torture state like Ohio so they could see savings of up to fifty percent China's auto insurance the Rayleigh. All you can do as best protect yourself and your family now and would I would recommend your listeners as an auto accident lawyer and as an insurance lawyer is it is worth it it is really really worth it for people to. Hey Up and get the unlimited portion of pip because reality is is that even though no one likes to think that they will be a victim. You know it does happen and if there are millions of dollars person in medical bills. Because you're you're you're you suffer a massive TBI or spinal cord injury or you lose a leg and all the things that I help people with if you choose a fifty thousand dollar tip cap you know that's gone in a weekend. That's literally gone by the time you leave the hospital if you have a serious injury and now you're on your own and means that if you don't have great health insurance You you lose all of your personal savings and you have to clear our personal bankruptcy because in medical debt which is the downside of these tort laws by the way. And that's what happens in other states. And then you get shifted onto Medicaid and and the taxpayers are GonNa pick up the bill because the bills aren't going away they're just getting shifted now to the rest of us. Tax Payers but Medicaid doesn't pay for a lot of the essential services that people need so I mean there are three things I tell everybody now That they should do you know one is they should by the John wanted to protect themselves too. They should by the highest liability insurance. They can because the reality is that is actually actually unlike no fault. That is actually very very inexpensive. It's very cheap liability. Insurance is the insurance. You take out if you cause a crash and injure someone so now that we have this new law. The negative driver now is going to be responsible for a lot of those medical bills so if you caused millions of dollars in future medical care because of a terrible injury you understand that that now is a negligent driver. You know you're responsible for for the lifetime medical costs and that means you can lose your house and your life savings and could really have a horrible fact and literally for the price of a movie tickets and popcorn and you know and and a pop you know you can buy a much higher level of liability insurance and I really do recommend that protect. Protect yourself now and then the third and probably the most important thing is there's something called uninsured underinsured motorist coverage and and what that means is is just like the name implies. If you're hit by someone who was either uninsured like over fifty percent of the drivers in Detroit currently are and by the way probably will continue to be after the new law. Because you savings are loser is we've been talking about for the most part for detroiters If you're if you're uninsured driver or now if you're hit by underinsured driver because a lot of drivers I was gonNA still have minimum liability coverage. And they're not going to be collectible. What that allows you to do is turn to your own insurance company? That will then make the difference between the inadequate insurance limits of negligent driver. Who hit you and the full cost of? Let's say you're you're the injuries your pain and suffering and your medical bills up to that level of under insurance that you purchased and that's dirt cheap That is one of the best deals out there but nobody knows about it and insurance agents you know. Many of them mean very well but they're not surely will educated on the insurance laws or or what happens in real life and a lot of them. Don't even tell people so you know you might go to your agency. Say I want the best covers to protect myself and my family and they might sell you a million dollars in liability insurance. But they're not even telling you in many cases about uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage and for literally thirty forty dollars. You could buy another million dollars of of uninsured underinsured motorist coverage. And if you live in Detroit you are insane gene not to have this so so those are the three things I really recommend. People can do now to protect themselves. And hopefully hopefully the politicians will do something about these discriminatory non-driving factors in the meantime and hopefully. Hopefully we're we're GONNA do something to empower the Insurance Commissioner so that Michigan's insurance companies don't have to have the highest profit margins and the nation which is what they basically had for the past twenty years in this state Those are huge failings. Those are huge oversights personally the the Republicans in the legislature We're not going to really work with the governor on on doing something to lower profit margins of the insurance companies companies and. I'll tell you something. If you look at the new law it actually now is going to increase profit margins of the insurance companies. Because if you think about it now. The insurance companies companies. They're capping their exposure. Because if a lot of people are now buying fifty thousand dollars in PIP and they know their exposure the worst case as scenario is fifty thousand dollars. So that's going. Allow them to lock in profits at probably even a higher rate than what they currently have been doing. And in the meantime they WANNA make sure they're they're they're taking personal responsibility this. Oh there reason. People's rates now at renewal to make sure those profit margins origins don't change one bit when they have to start providing these savings in another year. So that is why your friend saw thirty percent increase now. How at renewal time and that's why people keep coming in? They're going crazy saying why why I don't understand that you hasn't even taken effect yet. What is going? On why are my rate skyrocketing. So so those are some of the things people can do. So thank you for your time. Steve I appreciate you five hundred what else you. Also I know I covered very quickly. I'll oh put on my website my own recommendations on what insurance coverages people should be bind protect themselves. Because I know it gets complicated and if people aren't familiar with this it might be hard took follow what I'm what I'm saying so They want to go to my website. Which is Michigan Auto Law? I'll I'll put my own recommendations for your listeners. As well on on what they can do not protect consoles when they talk to their own insurance agents all right. That's a lot to unpack. If you've got any feedback about the show. Send me a note. Daily Detroit at G MAIL DOT COM. Whether you agree with Steve or not. I thought it was important to hear him. I'm glad we talked to him.

The Soul Of Eastern Market With Dan Carmody

"Welcome to your daily Detroit. I'm Jerry stays coming to you from the mackinac policy conference. It's Thursday may thirtieth twenty nineteen today, we're talking about the future and soul of Easter market with Dan Carmody. He leads a nonprofit eastern market partnership. Dan has a crucial role in the organization that helps guide one of Detroit's most well known and well, loved neighborhoods. We get into the vision for the area, the challenges, it faces and talk about the soul of the center of Detroit's food, same that conversation is up right after this daily Detroit's mackinaw island coverage brought you in part by repurpose. That's where you can hire top talent in Detroit faster. Download their free startup salary report at repurpose dot CO. And of course, we'll have Lincoln, the show notes, so it has been a pretty interesting few weeks for you. It has and to deal with some of that, especially with what's all been going on in eastern market. I understand you've got some new. New new programs coming in that are really interesting. Yeah. So, you know, this whole notion of a lot of investment coming in Easter market is something I you know, we saw coming, if you years ago, I, I'll Easter market is, is really amazing that it's one hundred and twenty eight years old, and it's amazing because we don't have any peers left around the country, because most of them are eliminated by the same kind of investment wave that we're now bracing so in many ways, these markets to there, because of the failure of Detroit real estate for fifty or sixty years. It left it left it in place. Easter markets us one hundred twenty eight years old. Because it's changed not because it stayed the same, if it stayed the same there'd be no would have been irrelevant a longtime ago. So in twelve years, that Easter market, that I've been at people have given us base, you know, to general community direction is don't change. It just make it better. So how you do that is kind of the really central question. And the fact that we have an investment wave coming at us is not entirely a bad thing because we got a lot of abandoned buildings, we still have a lot of Aken, lots there's still a lot more value to be derived. But how do we how do embrace that development wave without losing our soul in the process? It's kind of the central question. And so a few years ago, we really took it apart put together a strategy plan that we're quite proud of in that led to the city, investing eight hundred thousand dollars, six hundred of their money in two hundred thousand from the nature conservancy, and they'll be unveiling a master plan based on our strategic plan later this summer. Then master plan does two things. It expands Easter market district to give us a chance to keep larger scaled food enterprise food, processing and distribution, which is way the heart of food district wolverine foods, for example, we'll bring packing company had to expand or they would have had to left the. City at least in part because they only had one other alternative. And if they didn't double their production of fresh burger patties, they would have lost their contract. They already had the city Detroit economic growth cooperation worked hard to get them. An eight acre site near the I ten in what we call the food innovation zone, which is one hundred acre so expansion with Easter market into the east northeast current district. We're real proud of the plan is taking shape because by combining stormwater management, you end up, creating about a million and a half square feet of space for food manufacturing distribution that we think will be absorbed over the next ten years. At the same time as we improve the quality of life for the sixty or seventy families that have stuck it out over five or six decades of disinvestment watching their neighborhood splash go from Evan thirty two houses on it to two houses. So we couldn't expect developers come into the historic part of eastern market district in them at their displacement. If we didn't try to emulate the best behavior pasta around trying to do new development while respecting what's there. And so we've tried to do that you mentioned the soul of Easter market. What do you view is the sole of Easter market? Well, we think there are three things that since eighteen ninety one Easter markets been in it's sustained itself, despite the revolutions in the city around it or despite the revolutions in the food sector, it serves number one, we're a place where people particularly those with limited resources. Go to start or grow their small business. Number two are about food and number three were place where everybody regardless of their income race swath of life there. They feel welcome at the market. And we take pride in the fact that the market has. Spent eighteen our organizations have spent about eighteen million dollars fixing up the public market Maki nicer at the same time we've continued to make sure that everybody feels welcome. So you can't do that. I mean, being run down and dirty and being isn't isn't the end I'll be all being authentic. And so the development protocols that we as normalization adopted last week in announced yesterday are biscuit criteria that we're going to that developers on the front end. This is what we think are important if we want to keep those that those three characters, those core values that solar the market, if you will. And having a criteria is great, but put him to work to make sure that we can kind of help build this environment that sustains those corvette is, is really the critical part. So it's the first of four steps, we re establish the criteria here, the things we want to other birds to consider, and here's where we disagree a little bit with the community benefits agreement. Process now there's nothing wrong with community benefits, going processes, but they come in typically towards the end of the design of the project rather than at the beginning of the project, we think it's far easier for developers to incorporate a community as thoughts, if they can let them know what they are up front. So when they're doing their fifteen billion pro-forma before they get to a final one, I like a billion. That's good. That's a good number Quin trillion billion. There's usually a lot of different rations of a project before the one that finally makes it to the finish line. And so we think we're doing developers service by letting them know on the front end. Hey, here's, here's what's important to the neighborhood in some ways. It's kind of reminds me if you think about communities, that mandate, certain ways that their downtown's get developed in, you know, Detroit is such a huge city. I'm really glad to see some programs like this that kind of make it a little bit better than scale. Right. Because one size, does not fit all I live in the university district. What works there will not work in eastern market, France, or may not exactly in those neighborhoods, aren't concerned about preserving food as a core value of their neighborhood. Processing and distribution. Maybe restaurants question. I've always had it and somebody who's traveled quite a bit. I'm always fascinated by seven day week markets and twenty four hour markets. Like if I think about of his Philadelphia, and things like that reading terminal is beautiful, Mark. Yeah. Yeah. Is, is could that be in the cards free market down the line? Maybe it's not a high priority for us for a couple of different reasons. First of all, we still have hollowed out the center part of Detroit, and there's far less households in are to serve the retail market than there. They're were, or the there are in Philadelphia other places at avid, seven day weeks, where it was. So there is still a pretty big gap in that, retail, need right now not enough to serve a seven-day market to remark. Moreover, we're more interested in the wholesale side of the business where we run want to nurture those businesses that make food products and distribute them to grocers to sound that, you know what we think that Saturday market's great and we've launched Tuesday in Sunday markets to kind of continue to build the retail base of Easter market. Keep in mind, we are an outlier amongst those twenty four seven public markets. You describing other cities, nearly all of them have twenty or thirty permanent vendors open seven days or six days a week with permanent installations. We have no permanent vendors except for Moda shoe guy, we serve between six and seven hundred independent small businesses come setup so tear down and leave, and that's a much different market than somebody that has a permanent market style. So and quite frankly, in, in the four prophet road, these days, the concepts of market halls, which are basically glorified food courts is all like the Detroit shipping. Just helping plays like that. There's there's hundreds of those around the country there. There weren't any of them there, you know, five years ago. So that's a hard concept. And there's real fine line between some of the newer, public markets like noake's public market, which is just a really big version of a food all. So so to me, you know, there are great Philly Mark in Cincinnati. West side market in Cleveland are both fat fat, fabulous markets, but they're not they're not serving hundreds of transient vendors, like we are. And so it's a different thing in the market neighborhood is different than than market itself. And certainly with the older buildings we have there, we have to come up with a whole different set of criteria around the older part of for market than this new, expansionary, because they're entirely different physicality of those neighborhoods, a lot of those older buildings are smaller many of them are almost impossible to get into compliance with modern food safety laws. With regard to any large scale food production pieces of them could be incubator or accelerator spaces. And in fact, when the projects we announced this week was our second. Excel. Later, we're, we're converting fifteen thousand square feet of space. It used to be metro code storage into suites for as many as eight emerging food, businesses again, not necessarily retail food businesses, but people processing and producing value added food products, whether it's ice cream or or lemon pies or whatever it is. And, and those we have over two hundred of those businesses itself or wanna saw at the market, and we think there's more than four hundred maybe as many as six hundred those businesses in metro Detroit. So those are the ones we're reaching out to try to grow them as wholesale businesses to try to expand the food sector from the bottom up at the same time we try to keep the larger employers like wolverine and grow packing, and germ X that are expanding from the top down. And so, at the end of day, we ended up with maybe five thousand jobs in the food distribution processing space, rather than twenty five hundred we currently up that was where I was going to kind of go next. Is it really strikes me with this path of development that you're outlining that there is? Seems just naturally. There'd be a focus on jobs and frankly, a lot of jobs and a phrase that I used to here in the past lot, which is, you know, jobs that are available for Detroiters. Right. They have a good onramp. We have spent two years. I think why we got traction with the city Detroit about our original strategy is that the food processing and distribution sector among all the sectors of the economy has the highest percentage of entry level living wage jobs that don't require a high school diploma. And so, you know you can make sixteen to eighteen eighteen to twenty dollars pretty quickly in in fairly low skilled food, sector work, and so those that is a profound on ramp to increase labor force participation rates in the city. And so this year recently, we also conducted our first workforce development pilot where we worked with greenhorn training solutions workforce development organization, that does training tried to give them specific. Download of what food sector companies needing so Geremek grow corn beef. Grow excuse me, and wolverine packing company, where employers participate, along with us to develop a three week curriculum to get people really oriented to the skills, they need to succeed in fruit sector job, and we're now placing the first fifteen people in those jobs over the next few weeks. So we see that as a start. We think that right now the urgency we've actually been working with five companies wolverine being one of them that who's needs to expand are more urgent than the timeline to complete the plan that the city is going to roll out, and so we have five sites identified, we've been working as a nonprofit to assemble sites landbank owns a lot of property in, in the area. We wouldn't be having a conversation if that weren't the case, but as you know, as we've talked about with the Chrysler plant, there's lots of speculators have go in and buy a few parcels here and there, somebody's gotta take out, and this isn't a big enough, proud, this isn't necessarily a FCA scale job. So we've been doing that. For two years and working alongside to economic growth, working alongside the landbank we now have four sites. Rape. But we think the ability to get four other companies besides wolverine in the ground yet this year for his part of next and those total five companies represents almost half million square feet of new space in between three fifty and four hundred jobs that one thing I noticed we're going through materials. Is it that there is a name change from issue market corporation to Easter market, you know, partnership. Yeah. And that really is very illustrative of what you're talking about much so much of their could do is so big that we can't do it by ourselves. So we have to figure out creative partnerships to beverage resources to get it done. We actually created our own nonprofit real estate development subsidiary to be able to be another tool to help for profit developers meet our goals. So, for example, if developers trying to set aside ten percent of their space in their new commercial building for. More affordable rents for commercial tenants. Maybe we be participating the project and find a low-cost or grant source of capital that can go into the project help them reduce their costs on the front end so they can more easily provide that discount in space on the back end. We're happy to do that. But again. Is smart partnership describes it work of two organizations, Easter market corporation Easter market developing corporation. It will continuously entities. It's just the umbrella under which we work as Easter market partnership. And I think it helps us focus on building a cultural partnership where I think, we're pretty strong at that already, but I think partnerships are hard work, but we're committed to making sure that we have stronger set of partners and partnerships in the future to defend these core values which can be done. But now without the work of a lot of people. Well, Dan Kearney? Thank you so much, I think by sharing so much about what's happening in one of the most beloved places of it's good for us. It's a real responsibility. And we when we've done planning processes people come out of the woodworks to tell us what they want about it with alike with don't like what they want to see happen. The fact is that everybody thinks about Easter market a little bit differently, but everybody has it in their heart, and we want to make sure to the extent possible. We can keep it in the hearts of a lot of people in Detroit. So here's a couple of other things you should know. Today, Detroit mayor, Mike Duggan announced a plan to make the city free of blight by twenty twenty four during his keynote speech here on mackinac, Doug and says, he'll ask voters next spring to approve issuing two hundred million dollars in bonds to finish demolishing, what he says are eighteen thousand blighted homes because revenues have been higher than anticipated Doug and says the city has paid down enough debt that it could sell the bombs without needing to raise taxes, the city council would I need to approve the plan before it goes before voters, Doug and says he hopes it could be on the ballot next March. Governor Gretchen Whitmer leaders from the Michigan house and Senate and officials from Detroit and around the state gathered on the big porch at the Grand Hotel this morning to sign a Bill into law for auto insurance reform Senate Bill. One signed today stops the use of gender marital status, homeownership occupation and zip codes for setting rates. It also stops use of credit scores, but it doesn't stop the use of credit reports and locations dough matters, as yet to be defined. Territories replace zip codes. It also allows policyholders to choose their level of personal injury protection coverage lowering portion of the rates it guarantees rate, decreases for eight years, but the devil is in the details. I did some math and you can see how Detroit will still have the costliest car insurance and Michigan the second highest in America up on daily Detroit dot com, although hailed as historic by some, and it is, as far as bipartisan cooperation around here, this more like a deal on the edges of the issue. And. Not comprehensive reform. And we're done for today. I am Jair stays take care of each other. And we'll see you around Detroit. You're listening to the podcast, Detroit network.

Are you some delayed adolescence, and you're just like living out everyone of your fantasies now all of that much? Yeah. It's blank chick style. But like with more. Well, yeah. Because I don't know how in blank check that kid was able to do all that with one million dollars. He lived in the Philippines. Yeah. Because you look back on that. Now as an adult you bought a castle million bucks where you're thinking like your millions. Yeah. Yeah. Most with. Yeah. Like, and it didn't look like dominoes like I think he was getting high end crows full on like, John and Vinnie's. Yeah. Yeah. It's also the nineties though. Right. So just a million bucks. Goes one million times is for kid that scene. Do you? Remember like I in commercials for the lottery, or knowing that that was a thing as a kid where you could literally like go to a seven eleven and walk out, a billionaire. Yep. I mean, not in that moment. But you could be starting planting the seed in like, right then. That's the moment. You you. You you plan to see that will come to fruition by the end of the week. Like you pick up a research. You know, like, I'll take this one scratcher when I come back. I'll be buying the seven eleven and recess. And by so doing I'm buying every other winning tickets. We'll genius. Did you ever like when you were kid? Did you ever like, I don't know? Do you? Remember those monopoly games at McDonald's McDonald's. Yes. I was everything. I mean, really got on. I got off the Burger King train and got on the McDonald's simply I must win boardwalk and parkways. Yeah. And every kid in school lied inside. I've got barred boardwalk at home, you got a hard place. And no one does that. That's the thing. We know you can't afford McDonald's Richie. They like let out all the park places. Like, you've got park place with every meal, and then to boardwalk boardwalk, and the thing that you always scared about is you didn't know which was the rare one. So when you got when you're like, ooh, wait, hold one hundred shady holding onto this. And they're like, no everyone has park player. Everyone has park place and probably boardwalk is like by some person who didn't even give shit. Fries. Please way we should win an instant win fried. Don't care. Thanks, chuck.

I should have been in that commercial. I should've this is Russell fries. I'm loving. Well, you kid actor now. No I wanted to be so bad. Did. I really did. I was like oh child backers life. So I was like I was begging for. Yeah. I was one was like come on. It's hard to convince a kid like when they're a child like, no, no, no. You don't want this? It's like it's like now when you see like some really wealthy people are like, I don't know, man. You know, I I was happiest when I was making forty five thousand dollars a year. Shut the fuck up you forgotten what it was like to not be able to pay your rent? Right. You forgotten. I guess I won't this day. But because a bunch and then next week is rum and week. What what did you do as a kid Michael was Sam sandwich? Like as a kid. I was super into ninja turtles you have him by proxy martial arts. Taekwondo Winston do. Jiu jitsu belt were you? We'll color is red belt in taekwondo Cam. Was RAFI favorite. Then. No Leonardo was oh, he's a leader. He's later. Yeah. Later so same as none a party, dude. I'm not a party, dude. I'm just a straight up, dude. Do you? Remember your? Like, you're like kind of stuff. Yes. No way. You we're about cicadas. Well, the money to know. Way he was about safety. Here's what I remember your catis. Yes. I do. But but the way he said it sounded like something I wanted to hear if you remember. Well, I was going to say do you? Remember your sense as and then my brain stopped. No, no, do you. Remember the like because you have to do a performance to get your belt. Yeah. So do you remember that? That's the kind of fuck you. You were going to say God, I was gonna say performance. Recital? Your credit Seattle Herati finishing move. Remember, your mortal Kombat finishing? Yeah. I can't do it in threes anymore. Goes if you don't you lose the ability to freeze things. So if you don't if you don't use it, you lose it was actually in reference to mortal Kombat of how high had no clue atrophy. And then later applied to language like speak French, and he don't eat immerse yourself in French. Then you forget it. That's more like a somebody use it as an analogy. And then it kind of stuck. My wife did martial arts. She's a fourth Don black belt taekwondo. So yeah, I know about the catis I'm aware. And I'm like, she also I've learned that people that are really good at martial arts and have made that their lives. They like they do not like to show it off. It's nothing you like to just bust out at parties. You wanna see me do this? Yeah. No, no, no. Like, no one ever does that. And when someone finally like kind of reveals that you do that. You're kinda go into what you're like this. Because like I had never seen. A I never see my wife do anything. She kinda hits you kind of hit it from me. And then we went to her uncle's house. Who has a heavy bag? In the heavy bag. Rocky. That's like twelve. Honey, can you do a little? I'm not going to do a thing. I'm like. Getting so mad at me. And then I use reverse psychology. Like, I bet you can't do it. And then in high heels. Yeah, she kicks this bag that hasn't moved an inch with me punching as hard as I can. Wall all the way back and forth. I'm like, okay. So you're winning all arguments. Yeah. Violence wins. Every argument. It does. I I think that's the main lesson from an injured turtles. Yeah. That's what I learned because they were charming and funny and all that. But when it came down to it, they were just fighting. Yeah. They were funny and charming up until business need to be hand. Then the like all right, dude. Get my I'm gonna get my knives. Pizza de gablers. Let me kill. They had sharp weapons all of them. Yes. Those things are used for cutting. Yes. Yeah. There's no way they were just getting away with like blunting. Yeah. I know. I would love to see a real. I mean, I couldn't watch the Newnan details. I actually walked out of the first new one. I had was I walk into a movie is a I don't feel like that's like a crazy move. But it definitely is. Like, what are you really how bad you don't wanna see and there's so many special effects? I was like, but I just couldn't sit through it. Because this is so insane. And they didn't. And I got so attached to the first one hashtag, not my turtles. Yes. Yeah. I wanna see killing in gruesome like I want to see them get back to the a and the Jim Henson creature shop, suits. But like raff, actually like, you know, cutting off ahead with with us. I or at least they have in the throat seven man just did like, can you imagine it was like turtles? But directed by the game of thrones director. I mean, oh my God. Then you'd lose two turtles, can you? Right off the bat. Take crap. And for some reason they're having sexual each other. I seen game of thrones. So I don't know what the fuck you guys are talking. What buddy at this point? You are the outlier of the universe. I know. I am. I whose Barack Obama. I follow politics. That that that was something that always bothered me as a kid. I'm more. Yeah. Goes arms. Yeah. Get arms like because she could play raff. She could to the the turtles all the reboot. I think that I think that should happen. Yeah. I totally think that should happen while we're on the superhero. And I know you love your superhero here. Should we just one? That's right. And not plural. Marvel right? That's all grouped together of Andrews. Yeah. All those guys. Wait. We aren't they separate isn't like DC and marvel. Oh, yeah. Remember separate? Yeah. Okay. So do you. I mean, you love all that. Oh, I love. All okay. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know if it was like Jetson sharks with DC marvel. I mean, it is be like you're not supposed to mention one to the other shit. They're never the to show. Meet like Jetsons in the Flintstone exactly what he did meet. And boy, oh, boy, we have not recovered. We sure has a country like very sequel people didn't wanna see that. He didn't wanna see that. Because we couldn't handle it. Yeah. I think because like in the Jetsons Flintstones movie the Jetsons. Go back in time to meet the Flintstones. I think if the Flintstones came forward to be the Jetsons. They would there'd be anarchy. Yeah. I did that's such a fucking phenomenal breakdown. And you're so exactly right. And that's why it didn't happen. That's why this had been discussed in the room. They had to be like, so we send the Flintstone, you know, forward, and it was like, whoa, Dan branch. So. Ranch so fucking. Fred powers, the car with his feet all of a sudden it's going to be flying. It'd be fine. He's going to see that. He's he's a caveman. His like would freak out and start rampaging.

So I'll so Detroit bay, oh, you mean network was like network wasn't going to pick it up those really trying to getting ready to pitch a later on like a Detroiters live where like we're doing this show. Do it you know, like in the show as well. And that's such that's such a how to you guys for how local that show was at the same time. How amazing it was like because I would watch the show. I'm I've only been in Detroit once and I loved it. And then I'll talk to comics that were from Detroit like J, Chris Newburgh, and he'd be like, no, dude, there's so many subtle. That like down a remember one time he told me like they used a potato chip. Oh, yeah. That is only in Detroit. They're pitching the. Add companies for that. Oh, yeah. We was that one of the benefits of doing it in. Like, just knowing all those ins and outs and the small things that you can kind of include. Yeah. Because those things are included for us because we love those things like I legitimately. I'll eat better made potato chips all day long every day. Are they better? They're better made for sure. Accurate, title, accurate, title voice. Meet. Yeah. All the all the fake ads in the new the news report. That's always commenting might become. I don't normally come in on the commercials.

He like, I'm always curious with guys that are just like that effortlessly hilarious like see prep or is he just come in and no shit. And he he's he's hanging out. And then he just cameras go on and he and he does it or just just kind of knew it was there McGrady Dirac with it. You know, it's pretty incredible. Yeah. Like, you don't try to give a guy like that too much either. Because you don't need to was why don't you know, who he is coming in like perfect. Just can't do you let maybe like a nudge here. So matches the whole thing. But he didn't even need any of that. That's awesome is a full genius. Did you get what sort of like local Detroit? I don't know people. I didn't mayor to certain people like, you know, reach out to you guys and try to. Yeah, we got like these plaques from the Mahir. Yeah. Like legit, like, not even movie. Probably no like plaques.

When you get a key to your city. Yeah. I really want. We're throwing the pitch. Pitch at a Tigers game. No I wanted to that one. That one I got practice. I don't wanna I don't wanna show up on like YouTube is a in Fultz up listening to someone who's done it. Yeah. I got to do it in angel stadium. Two days before I would through ninety pitches. I'm just like ninety miles an hour. You combine the speed of all ninety pitches. Yes. Then it got up to ninety. Then it got up to. I was I was like Thomas nNcholas at the end of rookie of the year just load it. That was me. But yet it is the most for something that you know, does not matter. Yeah. It matters so much to it really does. And if a second the second, I let the ball go my first thought was oh fuck like did not make it. But then it did. Van got seven pounds. Is. It comes up short. Was I knew it. Why you don't let dwarfs on? What I was gonna say I'll say it in unison, really oh whole stadium. We're on the same wavelength reading from a script bouncy ball or anything like that. But yeah, that's something that I I think you could do that I won't to tears fucking eighty home games a year. Yeah. You can't do one. Yeah. How many local heroes? Can you really? Have you know? All the time. I'm like, dude. How many guys, you know, kids that are high achieving high like like, that's usually what it is. Right. Yeah. How many times can deathly shrimp throw out the first pitch at again. Well, a lot and dare you dare you question. The amount of times Seattle fans wanna see deadly Trump live, hashtag, don't go. It. Don't question the shrimp. I'm shrimp at red Robin in one thousand nine hundred three and he couldn't have been sweeter camped out camped out. Side of a tower record the new jewel CD. No, no.

Get you got take fake moustache. Take is Adam rate here. Hope you're enjoying the episode. Just want to take a minute to talk to you about smoking. It's not good for you. Do you smoke? Yes. You probably do because you're a person and you're looking for that oral fix that. Isn't something creepy in an alley. Well, if you're trying to get control of your nicotine, addiction, there's new product out called Lucy. All right. It's a gum. There's all sorts of nicotine gums on the market. But this is the newest and most improved nicotine gum from a company that is reliable trustworthy. And and killing it the best in the biz right now called Lucy. Go to Lucy dot co right now, if you're looking for a boost in nicotine that you can enjoy anywhere and still get that long lasting flavor of gum. That's what Lucy gum is. The product was designed by a team of scientists from Harvard Stanford and Caltech who were trying to quit smoking. And they just couldn't find a way to do it appropriately. That's still kind of gave him. That fix and tasted not like shit. The only thing they could find we're pharmaceutical nicotine, gums, the tasted and looked like medicine and nobody wants to fuck in taste medicine if they don't have to. So they decided to redesign the product that contained only nicotine gum base and food. Great ingredients. They gave it the superior flavor texture and boost better than anything else on the market.

It's time to take control back. So get that nicotine gum with the good flavors to go. And now back to the episode. Would you host the game show? I I would if they have to be like a. A throwback or like because you see all these. I mean, that's becoming a thing now with Ellen in Baldwin and Jamie Foxx like doing the Kevin Hart. They won right to do one. I don't think it was wrong for Jimmy did Jamie Foxx. He's dishes. An this is an rotten rob Lowe's. Doing one right now where people are like floating in giant robot arm. It's real it's ridiculous floating in a giant. There's a giant like, oh, you mean, he's not hosting. Does your mom wanna fuck me? No. That got cancelled. But this one three up wears this giant robot arm, and you're sitting in the middle of it. And you go to all these different screens like you float around blow hosts, it looked like a crane picks you up and then moves here, and like, so if I played it would just be the crane that picks up toys that. That. I want. Brad williams. A throwback, right? Yeah. You hoes prices, right? I would host prices would be fun. It seems like it seems like just the most one could take a day or two to learn the game. Yeah. Exactly. And they'd be producers. They're like wrong. He had to do this this. Yeah. Behind door number one is the spine neuro ones that don't make it during the one. Yeah, really leaned towards two. That I think that would be the hardest part about being a game show host is that you'd obviously want everyone to win. Yeah. Like, you don't want to be the one. That's like. Yeah. I know you need that money to pay for grandma's funeral. Number one in your face idiot. Like, I get to keep whatever you don't win. And that's why how successful game show law. Right. That's in his writer, whatever whatever they don't win keeps. So rate when you guys were shooting in Baltimore as you. We've been there and it a LA. What it's not the night the nicest most like what I feel like way. When you're shooting that show, and you around all those people like you can't help. But like you make your own fun. And you and you make home where it is. Because of what you're doing right. Yeah. Know, so were there places that you guys would go how much also would you just hang out outside of show days so long that you kind of had to well, wouldn't we were shooting the show? We would hang out with each other all the time because that's who we were. It's our family when we're out there. Nobody's going home to their kids. Yeah. Right it. So we we'd go mostly we'd hang out and fails point, she's like, a little cool, hipster town alkyl craft cocktail, so many graph cocktails college students get drunk from the street freak out, it'd be normal people there. Yeah. I certainly could be really. Been buried then shoot them. I feel like you can have the Clark Kent superman thing where you take off the glasses and the suit and then. Yeah. And then you're Chris Pratt, Jack. And no one knows you as the guy from veep. Yeah. Yes. So you're good. That's the benefit of the bars in Baltimore. Sweet. I love a like a industrial town issue kind of bar Detroit. Show me a bar in Pittsburgh. So me bar in in Baltimore show me bar in Cleveland, your home. I'm Mike perfect day. So that they have that same Bob they do so you're so you're dive bar over like nightclub. Yes. One million times all day. All meet you for drinks one night in was high high high period. Hyperion public was a public house Subba cast. Yeah. Let's do that bar. Yeah. They are not a sponsor. But they want to be right for sure. Yeah. We will happily singer praise. Oh, yeah. So he's the host all my birthday parties. Yeah. Just like take take it over. How cool is it? When you finally find a bar where it's like everybody knows your name. This is my bar. I mean, it's I moved closer to it. This is where I'm spending my over almost save. Uber's in my meetings were right next door. Just roll in one other thing. Go back to the afterwards. My bar friends about what happened in the meeting. Now, your your character on veep is one of we just had twenty hail on the show. We asked him about like, there's so many assholes on the show, and he goes, no, but SAM's character. It's like the only person on the show, but like these insults that are coming so fast and furious. Are you ever just like, hey, guys? Can I'd like do like so much. I wanna get from sharp uppercut by the I would love to see your character. I hope this happens in obviously, you can't spell anything. But I hope he snaps. Just goes. Right. Finally, go finally hits back. Joan. I can't say. Well, we certainly hope. The days when you. Yep. It depends because because the cast is so big and drew things get split up. So, you know, like, you'd probably probably the day onset would be twelve hours or so, but then you'd be there for like four of them, depending on how much stuff you were in that day the wrestling with it being two campaigns because you got Joan in Salina, which the first episode is aired. So we're not. Oiling anything, but the campaign with Jona God, I love that. Just because he's hot you take. And he's, but then you had this thing in the first episode where he ends up marrying his half sister. His steps is. Yeah. His his stepsister. He announces it any like does this interview where he just makes it what seems to be worse. And then in the last scene of the show, you're like actually his improving with white males. Dating a relative. He's he's pulling very high and that joke we talked about a little bit before before you came on that is so like, so smart. And so like, you're not allowed to really laugh at that joke because that means you know, what's going on important, right? Exactly. I thought about born I've been my act. I don't care. They're just born. Right now. The search is our moon. Yes. It's all like mother fucked son. You're like. Watching this. Now, we give me some of like, the mother folks friends pal motherfuckers past pal, folks. I don't need to see directly motherfucker. We know what is that on the front page? Then forced to watch it review before you click on the one. So like an ad. Well, you just see the you just see the title and and pretty much self explanatory thing. Thing. I saw there's also like a search like thing of what people search. Yeah. What areas like women in Detroit? The number one search is for the word Detroit through surging Detroit important hub. What are you looking for exactly what Detroit porn? No. Like so just like, oh, well the Tigers lost again. Let's fuck to get over it. Kid rock. Detroit baseboard. A kid rock look, alike, look alike going at it together. Who's it's so weird. How some some people wanna to do a reflection of their real life in in their porn. I don't want that. They know. I live my real. Yes. I'm aware of it people like, oh, you watch porn. No, no, no, what I ever checked it out, of course, because I know half the people. Yeah. That's all this is on this thing. What is the what is the highest viewed midget porn like what is as normal? Like, there's some crazy. I mean, you say something normal. It's a major porn. It's it. Is it like grabs cereal off top-shelf blows? Or is it? Was it like something crazy like, you know, midgets jump out of shootout of cannon into pussy. Is. It definitely seem like I'm trying to think like how crazy do they get basically they bring out one of those t-shirt cannons. And. Dwarf into it. She just spreads eagle in. Trip to the hospital. See your side. After you fire the war, right? And then you have Jim Ross com. Taking good. Giants broken. I'll walk. I mean higher. I mean, she doesn't talk to him anymore. That's why she's doing porn almighty. Got a strange. There is a family there. Dammit. Oh, my what's new here? She's we'll be back now. Don't don't you want Jim Ross and take your life so much. So I feel that's what is missing from professional wrestling right now is a wonderful colour comment. Well, he is he's even play by play. But you're missing that enthusiasm. Can you can't call wrestling like it's actually sports now? I mean, no need somebody to be like you need you need a a a Jesse the body Vince McMahon. Oh my God. Yup. Hogan is really he went to fill in. He is that for every bag. I think what we see. He's usually really using his brain you need to care gas. You need that Ross Camry thing is deadly. And yes, you can't have the guy that's doing like all like all. And that move is a 'camorra that he probably learned that jujitsu school that he studied like, no, no. It's comic book villain villains. You need. Like, I'm going to be like he'll get God. That is a steel cooking. Exactly. Definitely temperatures up the seven hundred degrees. He is with it winds around. There's no way out. Exactly. Regular wrist. Luckily, he is going to snap that rest. The teams in the bones. They are in dire. Straits he'll have to learn how to do calligraphy. Right. What now? The Dow maybe after veep and Detroiters. You've got a little bit of free time can can you? Call WWF me. And I'm on give Michelle out. I mean, I think you I think you'd kill it. I think so I think so too. I think you should do that. I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm gonna start calling them. Would you guys do full cast dinners or would you like hang separate like since the cats are so big you guys some one big group Email like raw going here tonight. Or is it like sometimes like trying to do a big we know everybody's off. Yeah. We're all going to this restaurant. Sometimes it will be small groups because you know, some people shooting. Yeah. Late night. And we're also know you you like the hang I love, your great hang and a good boozer thing. So it's like I would assume the like if we got not an early time. And we're offering like let's go kick it some some always was gay. But there's which is great. And he's got good. Gotta be. But there are some people that are like, no, I'm going to just get to better early and chill and not let things maybe escalate or maybe I'll have one right? And then and then leave it might put it's not too. Didn't kick us out. Sitting room. Yeah. And now we don't want to I kind of made a joke yet some free time now, but you don't because you're 'cause you're you're working steadily. Yeah. And I kind of alluded to it. Let's get to it. There. You have a movie that's coming out soon. Super intelligent. I think it comes out like Christmastime. Okay. We'll soon issue this year. Yes. You're you're back. The Melissa McCarthy crew. Yep. Directed by her husband, Ben FALCONE him. Yeah. And dot com. Yeah. I pronounce the. Dwarf say it steered by the Ben Falco. Mouse. We are free to try to go try to cover for real quick as Witton. Let it go. This is now the second or third movie done kind of with that crew. This is the third movie booby. Spy ghostbusters. Yeah. This one is a nice to come back and see like a lot of the same old faces on a movie set. It is it really is. You know, just gives me a sense of comfort -bility. So I can just I can really treat the crew like shit. Safety net. Talking to. Yeah. The gaffer you don't get it. All man, closer. I'd spit in your fucking face. Is there a humane and has your main hand walking? That's just Gavin. Hang dammit parts that will pay for his family's meals less. They'll think they're getting at home. Oh, lord. Jim Ross to be everywhere. He does I love him. Yes. So didn't like in there is there when you're on a set, and there's people that you know, already is does that kind of loosen. Yup. A little bit where you're late. I don't have to reserve. They already know me like, you know, you never wanna be disrespectful on a set. And so like, you certainly don't want to be over familiar before, you know, anybody. But then there's also the same time. You don't wanna see Mike? You're you're like unwilling to participate. You don't wanna feel like oh guys cold in that? Right. So say always bouncing eight those I in any situation. So I move on movie. It's just helps everything to just have that. Familiarity. Yeah. I know Melissa, I know back. Hey, our thing. Okay. Seen a lot of freedom to play a freedom to play. Yeah. It's good. What's the part that you play in that movie? Ben, and I are NSA agents by now you've played a TSA age TSA weis two times to now you're an NSA agent. Yep. You're just going through all the all the as I'm trying to get to NASA at the end of NASA. Black Pratt goes to space. An opera. Go on. When were you? We NSA is what again. The people who listen through your Alexa, national security, so. Yeah. So so that is. Yeah. People do that. We've that's a known thing. I mean, the man's on VP knows what the government. Oh, yeah. I mean, I literally was talking about macaroni and cheese a couple of weeks ago as you do. Was a Tuesday night and wouldn't much on TV start talking start talking cheese. And and next thing, you know, on Instagram an ad for albertson's macaroni and cheese pops. I mean, it's scary. And then I'm like did. I forget like I worked at albertson's in high school in Seattle. But I don't remember talking about oh, you know, who used to have the best MAC and cheese albertson's. But so I'm like, how do those two things. I mean, maybe it was just, but but because no because albertsons is maybe I said it another time in the I don't know how lasting advertisement not to a bazillion people. You know what? I mean, they can't afford to do that. It's just you. So this just you or just a few. So it's like so super targeted and like it was so quick, man. Like that. So we're so scary about it. I imagined some command center somewhere where someone just goes to race talking about cheese again cheese. They percents deal shooting albertson's here. And he hit him with a craft. DM's or just put the ad in his feet, but the ad in speed playing the DMZ two am. Yeah. That's me. He's looking for MAC and cheese, while we said goodbye, we know him. Yeah. Now that like when you when you get a part as TSA agent a second time are you excited about that? Are you like well now, I know what to do? Now from the is old hat now. This guy is real. Do you go the airport and be like, you're doing it wrong? I I'll go the airport, and I'll be like recognize me. Come on. Way they should piss how many TSA people have been in movies. They should know you. They should be. I'd like, yeah. If somebody was playing me in a movie, right? Like somebody came I played sandwich. Sit in a movie. Yeah. I'd be like, I know you. Yeah. I'm familiar with every dwarf ever. Yeah. He's been in a movie ever. Okay. Dave is Billy Barty? There you go. I love you when Billy Barty, by the way. I love dearly Bernie, by the way, I love that you broadly, and Billy Barty. We're hang did. We just become best friends. And he didn't mention at all. I love your saying you are of trust buck that guy. Right. I see that. All right. You're on. Damn it. Almost had you say just how you passed it back out. I want him. I want him to the point. I want to be in a movie with him at some point on. We're on the network seem at the party, by the way that you went Billy Barty is a is a great title for a documentary about Billy Barty is and who is Billy Barty refreshed. My greatest football time. I guess sure. He the guy from Seinfeld with the beard. That was no that was not not Kenny Baker. Those are two D two is that. Bad. Nope. Tony Cox love Tony Cox. You might be my favorite dwarf. Let me finish my son. Fight you that I don't know. Dwarf that I don't know is. Starting tomorrow with Tony Cox. We're talking part series where I get to know. One question one minute. By the end of it. He replaces Brad. Our our media person. Katie she even popped up. Yeah. Say that in the look I got from all three collectively made me. My but. Wait. So. Already. He was in life stinks. He was in masters of the universe. He joins in willow. He's he's not worried Davis. The wizard a big ones not the big wizard wizard. But but he's the wizard in in the beginning who says choose what exactly confront the power to control the world finger, and he's oh, my guy and he holds up as little dwarf sausage digits. I never ending story. You know? I'm pulling up is probably I'm going beyond Barton. Yeah. He was like the dwarf, and then what? A lot of dwarfs. No. But not a lot of as we call. You guys, Richard? Reaches. Don't know. He started LPGA little people America new way, he started. He's like I want a club where I can hang out with my dwarf buddies have crazy orgies rumbles skin. Yeah. He was Rumpelstiltskin. Holy share deep dive on bardy that. Yeah. And I got to meet him a few times. He was awesome. Yeah. Crate crazy story. My dad met him before like right when he found out that I was going to be a dwarf. He played in a Billy Barty did a golf tournament a charity golf turn out here, which was awesome because you'd played raise money for L P, and then bardy puts in your last putt at the end of the Gulf thing, he he goes out there, and he puts in US. But so so my dad looks down and goes, you don't like just found out my wife, and I are going to have a dwarf, and he goes he goes are there any benefits of heard a lot of people talk about all the negative things. Are there any benefits and Bharti looks up at him and goes, everyone will remember your son? Yes. Fucking and cool. At one just chamber. Just ready ready, and everyone will remember your kid, and that makes sense because body was in every movie was before he was this IMDB. His IMDB is didn't anticipate a deep bardy dive on this podcast. But I'm happy to go in there. And I got my my fucking life vest on an I am floating and ready to soak all the Bharti. It's a party party. That's what he threw in his bedroom for the L PA convert. Party party. If you have a pass for the body party. Yeah. My finger you shouldn't do the Mati body win win when he passed away. That was the editor. Yeah. He passed away when he passed away that was the dwarf equivalent of when like Biki died. Oh, yeah. Which is really ironic. But instead of like the long Lincoln hers there's like a golf cart. Shucking flowers. Not only was he inactive first of all this. Credit list is extensive. He was on the love boat. He was on Charlie's angels. He was on man from Atlantis. He was on the red Foxx show. But he was also he played little man in the happy. Hooker goes to wash.

That's like just you and the dealer or I will I will go to the table is just just look for a good table. And I won't try and ruin a rhythm of it looks like everything's going. Good by the way, whenever I play blackjack. I always do that. Like, I go to Taylor go. Hey, guys. Like what's happening at this table? If you guys are in a rhythm. I will keep moving on yet. Because I don't wanna be the guy that sits down in the foxhole and now and now the dealers just showing Queen every time I'm not going to be that guy. Oh, I as playing a check etiquette.

Yeah. Yeah. They spent on time they talked to people and every everyone was really winning to put into effort to bring the city back where once came from with that in mind, they had the opportunity to buy a house here for thousand bucks. And tell where is that house? It's, it's unfortunate rates, which is a in hope village near big or nickel folks, hope yeah. Very, the longtime well-known nonprofit here Detroit. And they are one of our closest partners. Less less couple of months. Oh, so you're talking a rough area of Detroit, northwest Detroit, kind of like Davidson in the LA Jackie savings. Right. Exactly. It's a close neighborhood, people know each other. There's this cool on the on the on the opposite of the roads which we worked together, as well with I think it's a really it's. The perfect place to start a project like this join, let's get you involved in here out. What do you do as a sustainable concept, developer, some actually responsible for signing? These dude yourself. Eck Knicks are casseroles talking about, for example, I'm working on insulating curtains which people can make ourselves with some real reflective materials, and insulating materials, and another example is secondary glazing methods. So, for example, you can use acrylic sheets on the other side of you're on the inside of your window. And then can save a lot of energy with those methods interesting. So I want to get into some of the specific things like that, that you're doing, you're young. Are you fresh out of college? Yes, I'm twenty one and we're just finishing our bachelor's. But now we took a year off to do this to run this organization. So you bought this house. Tell us a little bit about the house. You know, both when Motown movement bought it. And also now, you know the progress. Yeah. So the house was was kind of a mess when we bought it. There was actually nothing. Everything was rubbed out a single family home. Yet. It's family. Okay. But is, is a two flat like upper lower yet. So there are a lot of things that had to be of weight. The construction was kind of good. So that was the also wanted to reasons why he bought this specific house because there was no like major construction, it had to be done, but there are a lot of brick home brick home. The only thing was that the roof wasn't strong enough to carry. The, the solar panels were will will be on there, so that had to be done new windows replaced in ws windows. The there was we hope community garden on the side of the house, where the neighborhood can grow crops, and everything. Then there was a kind of setback because there was an arson fire into in the house. So dear yeah, so we still don't know what actually happened, but the basements completely was clear ruin. And how long ago was this Joanna? I think in the summer of two dozen than seventeen. Okay. So so to almost two years ago and, and after that, the organization like pasta, little bit little time because there was no funding to, to repair to Dench, and this has been mostly crowd funded in their correct, though. Yeah. Yeah. I think fifty fifty percents crowds and what's the other fifty percent? We have we have partners in our inner projects. So they the house also going to be some kind of sustainable showcase. Oh, so companies can show in our house, what they specifically do, so we have a partner in relation, we've bar in the windows, donate donates. We have a partner in heating and cooling. Not having to pay for material and everything. So Joanna you talked about the curtains which I wanna ask you more about offline talk about some of the other things that you guys have been doing to this home. I mean you mentioned casper, the community garden, which is outside of the home, obviously. But what's going and solar? On the roof. What else? Yes, it's kind of going to be an inspirational home as well, because we know that the, the neighbors won't get the, the solar panel Pennells themselves. But we implement the gray water system as well. So we used to water from the sings and showers to flush toilets again. We need to push laws Michigan for that. But we working on it like in to allow it or. Yeah, it's not really coming to implement those in your house. You can sing you you're using used water to, to plush toilets. Yeah. But there, there are some I gene issues in that. So what Gosper said, we are using insulation solar panels, a heating pump, and obviously, a garden next to the house, which is already up and running. Some obviously sustainability is a huge component of this. Why does that particularly make sense in a city like Detroit, where the neighbors as you've seen are dealing with much more fundamental concerns about, like you know, how am I gonna put food on the on the table and feed? My children and and how am I gonna pay my bills and so forth? Yes. There, I think there are two reasons why Detroit a place as because first of all the houses are really bad mostly. So no installation. People don't do not have any knowledge sustainability so we can show them that you can really save a lot of money. On your energy bills using really simple. You know, like I said, do it yourself things, for example, even closing your door. When you leave the house, or, or turning down to the temperature when you're leaving the house, these, these kind of things. And another reason is because likely previously talked about the, the winds are really cold and summers are really warm. So for showcases perfect because if you can do it in Detroit, then you can do it everywhere in the world. So pitching kind of the ability to save money as a big kind of component for you, as you know, marketing and everything to the to the numbers. I mean what can you talk a little bit about kind of the work that you've done. I mean, I know you said, you, you're working with some local organizations, and nonprofits, including focus, hope, right? Yeah. Yeah. What kind of outreach, have you done to the actual neighbors who live in that neighborhood? They're like, have you guys talked with the neighbors. Yeah. Yeah. Of course, when we first gave me a re we did some inspiration sessions with a neighbor, so really talked with them, what they wanted and was funny because sustainability wasn't the first thing. On our lists was more about connecting to other people having a good conversation. Give your kids safe haven for them to play or just to learn. So that's, that's the thing that we really implements in houses. Well, so there's gonna be a, a resource center education center, where we can our people can just study play games so have, like people educational and social components and thing. Yeah. Exactly. Let's go. And I think if I saw correctly, the third floor will be living quarters and fourth of so forth. The third floor and the attic, which would be the second floor this US. Yes. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. So tall house. That brings up an interesting point. I mean you're not natives here from another country, obviously. And you mentioned the gray water system, and the legal issues around that. What, what other have you guys come up against any other challenges that are just sort of, like lack of familiarity with local laws and things like that. For instance, we obviously had to drive a car here, and then we drive right bikes. And we had to deal with the car insurance as well. So that was really a big thing for us because. Yes, sounds weird, but to Cassoma so much time even we all wanted to drive in them in the end only three of us were insured because it was otherwise it was too expensive. We're putting in a lot of bike lanes around town. Yeah, yeah. But we're a long way behind the Netherlands. I mean, most countries are frankly. Yeah. But, but still, this are so big here because to take a buy from hair to our, to our place we live. It's like thirty minutes or something. Sure. And that that's even remotely close enjoys, what's progress like on this house like where do things stand today. All right. So, like we said, in the beginning of the year, we fixed the fire damage that was a big thing for us because after we can be good continue to construction, everything. So now we did the next quirk we did headed done by by contractor. We are going to do the, the plumbing work, hopefully very soon. Also by contractor right now, we're insulating place with big insulation boards. We're which were like bidding against the wools and after insulating and plumbing, two plays and everything we will dry will everything do some sustainable things. And then hopefully, there will be family in there in the beginning of the summer fantastic. So you're close enough to finish. At least the third, I mean I mean the plans ambitious. Yeah. Also probably are charm of organization of the plans are very ambitious. But why not strike, if you can so the, the roof will have solar panels also living roof today? See, yeah. That'd be like both. None of the living roof will be on the above the porch. Oh, I see. And by living roof explain, explain what that means. It's actually a green roof, again to be plans on it to juice. Stormwater runoff. I run off and on the Seward's the which system is going to there's going to be less water. So that's good. And we are also collecting it to water the garden again. Cool. So, yeah, that's discreet move. You. So is there, basically somebody from the Motown movement at the house, all the time, doing work, or is it kind of intermittent? I mean you guys have to do a lot of travel. I assume from another one's right? Yeah. So we, we've been here since February now stay or not or two months. So, yeah, that's, that's, that's the thing of course because we can't be here all year. So there's a part of the that's the project is kind of there's, there's nothing happening there, but when the when there will be a family in there. So that that's that's really important step for us. Because then there will always be beer somewhere someone and they're really some kind of social security, and everything, you know. Yeah. And do you have a family chosen? We're, we're looking for it against a together with folks. So what's the aim for the house? The overall goal. I mean is this going to be just like one of a kind and it'll serve as kind of like a model and, you know, all the other things that you talked about. Or do you want to do more of them around the city or in that neighborhood or something still? Talking about is I plan was to uses as. Yeah. The first proof of concept. And then implemented in neighbor who says, well, but I think we need to for a see, I if it works, and then see if we have to implement more of these homes in Detroit, or maybe even started in the Netherlands, because I think we can use in the Netherlands as well. We have to think about this minimum it's gonna give you great material to base a project on school. Right. Yeah. Also. Yeah. Of course, I liked you said this concept. So if this is if this is working good. Then I think we can convince a lot more parties to step into this project and help us helps on the way, maybe in Detroit, maybe in another city in US, maybe in amendments. So you're here until for two more months, you said, yeah. It's until the beginning beginning, Mitch ally. Okay. And then is that it for Detroit? You think he'll be back later on for another stint, or just? To be. Yeah. So the idea that this, this project is going to be handed over every year to new group of students. So it's kind of kind of an internship, kind of thing where you run your own company of business in Gotcha. So they'll be a new Sach's mccown. They're not a group working on this project and only finishing what's, what's the name of the university that you're from Netherlands. It's university. Right. Yeah. Technological university of Dallas Delfs. Yeah. And we're barking bartering here with Lawrence technical university. So hopefully, there will also be some students next year from learns stack because we only have a one now and that will be also good to have them when we are not here. So they can really really searching for for solutions for the, the time to earn of here because we felt that it was really harming the projects when you're gone for shadow. Sure. Sure. So are you still looking for help from people donations, and always Onis? So we're looking for fallen, Terry work ways. We're looking to do things such as gardening helping us with construction, even maybe help us. Get get get funding or something weird. For materials. Always for example, really can for Dr. Sheets for really looking for France. Always just just to hang out. I don't know. Well, Jerry Neier usually get a drink. We're pretty we're pretty amicable people. Figure can catch up some friends near. Absolutely. All right. Well, sounds super cool. And we'll have photos up on daily, Detroit dot com, but casper van Alphen and Joanna vendor loon from the technical university of Delft, thanks so much for dropping by telling us about the Motown movement. Best of luck. Thank you. I think so that conversations fan. So I'll admit right here, I was kind of skeptical of this whole thing at first when I saw them coming into the studio and see what it was all about. I'm lying O more people coming in from outside to tell me exactly what to do about my city, right. Detroit's starting to rack up a, you know, growing list of, of outsiders who come into town, you know, with, you know, sprinkling the ferry dust, you know, I'm gonna fix Detroit and, and to sort of goes bust. I mean, I'm thinking of whatever happened to Elon Musk's brother and, and you know that, that farm in the north end run by the university of Michigan. That's gotten a lot of criticism. I know. Yeah, it's there's a, a whole path of destruction of people coming in. To try to fix everything, but I will put a big but on this because there's some big pluses to this project. First off, they're working with local organizations, like focus hope. Now, focus has a super long track record in the city that was actually created by Eleanor Josephus in the in the aftermath of the sixty seven rebellion. And there's also others that they're working with and I love that, that is a model if you want to actually change things in the city, it's not that outsiders aren't welcome. It's that we have our own culture. We have our own standards. We have our own challenges that you learn when you get here nets kind of covered some of that in the interview, some of the things that surprise them when they got into it. So it's not only important from a credibility point of view. But frankly, if you're trying to a project working with folks that are already here, it lets you learn the lay of the land. I mean, there are things that just worked differently in Detroit in myriad, minor ways. And if you don't know how to go with the flow, you don't know, kind of like do the dance, tear your hair, absolutely. That'll do it for today's episode. Hope you liked it.

Stories Around Town & Sports w/ Fletcher Sharpe

"Hey, it's Jared. Welcome to your daily Detroit for Monday, October 26th, 2020. On Today Show covid-19 has continued to rise as many refused to abide by masks mandates protests and down Township result in arrests and hospitalizations. The new GMC Hummer sells out quickly a new program rolls out twelve Wi-Fi centers in Detroit and finally Fletcher Sharpe joins me to talk Lions college football and the prospects of the Pistons coming back on the court in Detroit by the end of the year and thanks to Tony who increases membership at patreon, Detroit. You are awesome and let's get started. Saturday the state of Michigan reported more than 3,300 confirmed coronavirus cases and the Monday Sunday combined total is nearly thirty nine hundred over the weekend the state reported more than seven thousand cases. The percentage of tests were getting back positive is now almost 6% and that goes along with 1,500 people currently in the hospital and twenty nine months and a fatality rate among known cases so far a four and a half percent this happens as although there are masks orders penalties for individuals have been enforced at any scale. I personally Home is pretty spotty compliance around the region lately as many residents emotionally Tire of the pandemic, but the coronavirus as seen with these spikes happening here and Across the Nation. Well, it's not out of us. About a hundred people protested in Shelby Township Saturday with police arriving in riot gear to handle the crowd a number of arrests and two protesters going to the hospital demonstrations in the Macomb County suburb have increased after Shelby Township police. Chief. Robert shall lead posted racist comments about protests on Twitter back in June and then following a month-long suspension returned back to work The Narrative of what happened over the weekend at 23 Mile and VanDyke diverges, depending on who you talk to police contend that protesters were blocking traffic that there were warnings before arrests and that protesters tried to break into the jail protesters say one of their own was strip-searched in a police car and their jail action was to check on protesters and see if anyone needed bail or a lawyer off the group behind the protests is Detroit will breathe Township police called strip-searched accusation a quote rumor unquote. Shelby Township Police said that they would release their footage of the incidents down. As of this recording on Monday afternoon, they have not later today another rally to support six protesters that are currently sitting in jail is expected. Shelby Township is one of Metro Detroit's fastest-growing communities. If you didn't know it's in the outer suburbs of Macomb County to community of eighty thousand people that's 90% white and 2% black as of the last census numbers. When it comes to electric vehicles bigger is becoming a trend the new 2022 GMC Hummer. Eveyone sold out of pre-orders in just ten minutes late last week. That's according to General Motors home. Although they didn't disclose the number of vehicles that will be produced in the fall of this year. There were thousands of people waiting to place an order the military-inspired super-sized SUVs start out at more than $122,000 and are only available in white. It'll have 1000 horsepower and 11500 pound-feet of torque that will power and I kid you not offer lunch Mode called WTF and that stands for what's to Freedom. It'll go 0 to 60 in 3 seconds and they say that they will have a range of more than three hundred and fifty miles per charge fast Chargers can add a hundred miles of range in 10 minutes, but on a more common level 2 charger, it takes more than a day literally 30 hours to go from 20% to full charge the New Hummer TV will be built in Detroit at factory zero or what was called the detroit-hamtramck assembly plant. There's a new program providing free Wi-Fi with Support Services to detroiters. They're called the lift zones and there will be a dozen of them across the city. This pandemic has Shone a bright light on the challenges that low-income kids have including access to Internet and technology. These lifts zones will allow students to connect to remote learning if they can't at home after all more than a third of detroiters have no access to broadband of any kind even on their smartphones provided by Comcast the Wi-Fi hotspots will be in community centers and other spaces that serve both adults and children. This is part of a national program of more than one thousand lift zones Comcast also offers discounted internet access at home for about ten bucks a month to those who qualify for free and reduced school lunch on Thursdays paid or a number of other Assistance programs. I'll put a list of the local lift Zone locations in the show notes. It's Monday. That means it's time to talk sports with Fletcher Sharpe good to hear from you man. Yeah, thanks for having me big weekend. I didn't believe I would see this but the lions are now three and three and managed. I know that I'm a little bit of a person on the positive side of things but I gotta say Stafford was pretty strong at the end. I mean, yeah, they were playing against one of the worst teams in the league and United Falcons and I don't want to take away from that because even the Washington football team everyone there is professional athlete and like they are trying their hardest and they're paid to try their hardest. So like I don't want to take anything away from that cuz a win is a win for life. It's a futile one. I don't think it's going to help them very much Stafford did look strong the Run game went back to being terrible again, which is a little concerning but on National tight ends day Stafford found TJ hawk in the tight in for the game-tying touchdown and Matt Prater used his super strong leg to seal the seal the win for them. So well, I'm happy that they're three and three back to 5 a.m. Here which I never thought I'd see the season. I'm a little worried that it's doing more harm than good to the team. Why is that drastic? Gotcha. I will say this. So I said this yesterday out loud if they sent out find a way to make the play-offs. I'll get Alliance team tattoo. You hear that people that is on the air that will be an interesting one Fletch. I I will be there for it. I'll go with you dude. Not none of my butt or anything like most people like I'll find a space where I can get a line same tattoo or won't mess up anything well from Ink to college football, Michigan State lost to Rutgers on Saturday 3827. That was hard to watch. Yeah. I think Greg Schiano coach at Rutgers must have heard our show and got really insulted when I said Rutgers was a basketball school to be fair records and not one in a Big Ten game and two years. They had joined the conference and then just stunk it up and that's totally, you know, Fair Greg schiano's been like the best coach and Rutgers history. He left to go to Tennessee and then came back to coach he brought. Fire to the team I figured they would still struggle but he brought some fire to them and I knew Michigan state would have some issues and like it showed they don't have a quarterback. If you don't have a quarterback, you typically don't win many college football games PS4 showing up Michigan State needs to figure out what they're going to do or they're going to get beat like this every single week. That does not sound good. Although I think a lot of people are excited to have football back. I then think Michigan fans were going to run into the the wall that they apparently did this first game all the Michigan State friends who were excited for college football to come back immediately were like, what is the basketball start off well, and then pivoting the Ann Arbor they won over Minnesota and pretty convincing way. Yeah. A lot of people are saying against Minnesota, Michigan. We need to be ready because Minnesota would upset them. And to me that is a pretty solid team. They're not, you know the best team but like they can come ready to strap up and play and Michigan showed why they're currently ranked 18th. They showed that by flexing their muscles running game passing game. Defense actually was pretty stout even like 24 points. There are 24 points spread out. They look like they might actually do some damage on a Jim Harbaugh for once. All right. So next is the game that so many michiganders. Look forward to MSU vs U of M. I mean, I think I know how this is going to go or have a feeling about it. But what about you man? This one's going to Sting from Michigan fans because I know Michigan fans love talking crap about beating Michigan State saved vice-versa, Michigan State loves talk crap up in Michigan, but it always takes the fun of it when one side notes in their teens very bad and it just doesn't really matter. Yeah, like all the years in State basketball used to be Michigan basketball and they were just better than them. It wasn't really fun to be able to talk about it because it's like well, we know we're going to beat you like okay and you can't really make fun of someone and talk to someone when they know. Oh, yeah, we're going to get beat em, most of my friends were Michigan State football fans are like most of my friends who are Michigan fans are like, yeah. I want to talk about this, but I know that they already know they're going to lose by Twenty. I work and say you're to lose by Thirty. It's not a fun thing off. Yeah, I see Michigan comfortably winning this game maybe by 15 20 points. All right, the next thing I want to talk about it's because the Pistons have been off the court for a really long time. They did not make the play in tournament off and were to starting to come out around the NBA that it's going to come back as early as December for games and the bubble. It's not going to be a thing. I'm really interested in this number one because you got some teams like the Lakers that are only going to have say 7 or so weeks off and then and of course is all in reports right now. None of this is confirmed yet, but it's looking like a Lakers about seven weeks off and then you got the Pistons. They've been sitting dormant for a really long time. Yeah, and rightfully so because they did not make the play in tournament because they were one of the worst teams in the league. I honestly think it's probably fine. If they come back then it's kind of like soccer in Europe how Covetous using kind of ended they had like a short break before the new season started off. I don't really think it's going to be much of an issue for a lot of teams. Especially the teams playing in the playoffs. Maybe teams like the Miami Heat who have lost key players to injuries like Goran dragic and I think that might be a bit of a problem for them in terms of like recovery, but you mentioned the Lakers Lakers would be fine. They'll take a breath and be okay. I think it's good for the team that have been out to get a chance to do something at all. The draft is about 20 22 days. So it'll give people a chance to get their new players everything acclimated. You know, I for one would like to see this is playing basketball under safe atmosphere. Yeah, cuz the league has not making a lot of noise about how it lost about a billion and half dollars and I think that's part of why they're really pushing for this almost full season of seventy games and really trying to get back to it, but I don't know the revenue mix them and I'll be honest. I don't see a lot of cities having Fanta specially considering we're talking about an indoor venue, right if they are talking about having fans at games cuz I'm going to fix the revenue problem cuz they're still dead. It's where like people can't go indoors to play like I know Michigan for one fairly certain New York. That's at least three teams right there with the Pistons and Nets and the Knicks. I'm not super certain by California either. There's fog and in California. So like you're going to lose Revenue. They're already I don't think it's very smart. I harken back to thinking about the Darko Milicic highlight reel the tapes that made the Pistons draft up when he took over in Europe and they allowed you to smoke in stadiums. People would smoke during the games and like you'd be watching the tapes and you'd see smoke go up to the top of the building and come right back down and rest right above the court because it may go anywhere and I think about like being indoors and breathing. You can't test every single fan that comes in there. You can test media you can test security you can test the players but you're not going to have that radar gun ready. They test every single handily in there and you can't enforce the whole wearing a mask indoors thing you'll need as much you'd like to you've seen how soccer teams and football teams have done that in the US and they've all failed cuz you always catch someone on camera. Out there mask around other people. So like if someone's in their sake and they're breathing out, it's going to go up to the top. It's gonna come right back down and rise and be in everyone's face. I don't think it's smart. I don't think they should do it. But then again, like I said with college ball being dumb they did it. Anyways, I will say in the bubble. The NBA did not have any positive tests inside the bubble. They did a great job with that bubble. If they could Implement some of those procedures into home stadiums. I think I should be fine. I think the harder part about that is is because it's going to be different states in different cities. People are going to react differently Michigan might be cool with certain things being implemented. You might go to the Houston Rockets. They might not be cool certain things implemented. I mean, I just had a friend who went through, Texas and it is a massless mess down there. Yeah. I don't know how I feel with my team traveling to play the San Antonio Spurs the Dallas Mavericks or the Rockets cuz if people are going to take it seriously enough in that regard outside of the stadium. I don't really want them inside the stadium Reading on our players and bringing that back for sure. Well, it will be exciting to have a dog More things to talk about and kind of ramp us up as we go and I know that you'll do that with us Fletch. You can follow Fletcher Sharpe at st. Fdw on Twitter.

PoliticKen Episode 9

"You're listening to the podcast detroit visit w._w._w. Dot cod past troy dot com before information. Let's up. Y'all we back for another episode of politics. Can't oh my goodness. The season is getting closer and closer to the end but i'm gonna live it up until it's today. I got some family family joining me. I guess i could say i got us a good back so we in avid place her somewhere. We ask the introducing ceo who i got joining me at the table today. I my homegirl low building man in a minute. We've got to talk good today though we we are we are going back to c._t. Days hubbard haw day on a way to ask plays may not playing games. I thought that my purse clo- okay you proud of you girl and i appreciate it. Oh always always always a pleasure. I feel like right now. We now get mentor. Today's the are we doing to mentor and i love you know how to o'hare always aside a joint last but now lease one of my first ever mid-seas. I mean one of the people people who made me feel like i need to step my game up because i knew somebody was watching it all the time she my baby girl was going to love how are you. I'm tired but down here and excited excited talk about somebody who i think. She does her past us love we gave we gave her everything we could and she's <music>. I'm happy to pass the torch all right cool. I guess yes more of us needs to be passing torch and also realize the the whole we are influenced than out here good okay and bag and some of the things on but that's neither here nor there today we're talking about something and i think it's really important especially for millennials to hear around this idea advocacy <hes> advocating and what that means. I hear a lot of people out here who feel like they won't woke. You know like they doing a thing. They got this influence. I mean they all her breaking barriers getting that check but let's talk about advocacy advocacy and what it really means because i think a lot of times people get it. You know confuse in. It's a lifestyle. I honestly believe advocacy. He is a lifestyle and it's dependent upon many things you know and not to say we advocated for the same thing. Somebody told me though before i came on the show that it's probably a good look go ahead and define the word advocacy and i'm a person who is a everlasting learner. I feel like you know sometimes we do you have to teach so that they can bring to light what it is talking about and so advocacy the definition of advocacy is public support for or a recommendation of a particular calls or policy public support for or recommendation of level particular cause or policy so i mean i feel like every time you post your instagram. You're advocating for something here. Essentially <hes> and i think thank you know a lot of times we have this influence we get on social media platforms not even realizing but it's a make or break day and age and so i just wanna get challah challah pan around advocacy and not just necessarily you know what it was was advocated for but who are advocates for detroiters detroiters who i mean 'cause we got so many different lanes right and so sometimes even in our own advocacy we're excluded wouldn't is not always inclusive running that we all have a part to play in this who is advocating for detroiters currently who it ain't mike duggan there is a table of anytime. You feel like someone says something worse please. Paul hand feels that the man who advocated for detroiters who you you came here in this room. I feel like are advocating for the future generations about a work yard do <hes> i'll know it's pretty tough to define line. I feel like everyone has their own mission but when we come together on the same go focus on the same go so i'll just some some of the congressmen out there like <hes> a big sean has kickback today. Da show big shy. I let me into his mom his mommy for doing the groundwork because i'm right in <hes> may forget her name but <hes> yeah she's a great <hes> worker for the people here any trae in my opinion so just to name a few trying to dominate the conversation not here had a political view a lot of people don't one don't know who they politicians are in the city so it was hard but you would even know if they advocate for the fact that you speaking up about some people you know they they do have platforms to where people can see some of the work they do. I know mary sheffield does a few things as far as like just community projects. It seems to be pub and usually my circle people that yeah. I know are interacting with that. So that's good to know is happening. I think there are a lot of millennials in particular who have positive intent but <hes> <hes>. I'm not really seeing the impact as much as i would like and far as far as like different branches or different social events like women empowerment events doc gutters event in a scrape but do we leave into work. I haven't seen van list as far as me. I'm still getting my feet wet. It's hard like support and seeing other people but what is the real intent and like. Are you really being impactful so i'm waiting to see more people make an impact and i just say like all right. We had an event. It was great when i do after that event what knowledge i'll take to share with the youth. I'm still waiting to see some work that but i would say even with that. The audience that you brings your event and the <hes> i guess you could say publication how you promote your event. Now also plays into advocacy as well because <hes> you only advocating to a certain amount of people or certain group of people so you kinda get the same thing people the same people in then just even with those people come into so the same events. What are you taking from events who go out to make it better. Whatever we are at came for so a sound like i mean the question we should be axa. Ah and i mean we can even go into this conversation. It's it's advocacy enough. You know it's like we become knees. Hey i support this. Hey we doing this is but is it enough in this day and age 'cause i mean i feel like i mean we got the political advocates who out here. That's their job. I felt like you who are supposed to stay up for something and be open about it. I feel like not enough. Politicians are advocates for anything. You know what i'm saying they get there and then it'd be like all all right but beyond all right we got us. You know we got us people but some of us yeah we got the influence and we got you know what it takes. The brain these crowds together. Sometimes the same crowds are different crowd when we begin to collaborate with something that i'm starting to see more of like it a lot. You know getting out of our own all i'm solo dolo. Oh and i can make it happen but realizing power of collaboration and then you got people like big sean. You know what i'm saying and i think that the issue who is but you made the point on a big shot thing is his his mom is doing the groundwork. He is so busy in life. You know he probably can't do everything everything so what is going to take is the collectively of the advocacy roles that we all play kinda. Get stuff done one back yard your topic around you know impact because again it's advocacy enough and i think that not not to walk there. Do we hold ourselves accountable for just coming together and not really doing anything to make things shake so whose responsibility is to advocate for the issues that matter i i think it's all of our job to advocate for those who can't speak in knows who don't have the knowledge to step up. You know <hes> me personally <hes> through the firemen. Now i have my degree in agriculture from michigan state university green light in china. Take over <hes> teach people do know only and growing because we depend on these whole foods foods and myers and all the other grocery stores fetus. We will always be dependent no so phil. I guess different different avenues that we need to strengthen chanted advocate for it but i feel like everybody has a part in it and <hes> unity is gonna take us today. You know no jealousy advocacy in unity our gonna say i'm a master eh <hes> <hes> but i feel like the community one niece a put education case in the forefront because we turn educators the educators matter but i feel like you know we took on a row to serve argue with our jobs so i feel like that's our duty to the community however i felt like within our community parents it's community members need to support the schools and do that. Due diligence to support the black educators encourage kids to read books so having events at the library for the. I thought we do a lot as adults to come together. But what are we doing to you know san jose go back and get it and bring them up with and encouraged that knowledge so i'm doing my part art. Math is a really it's of course it's a difficult subject for young people so i'm doing my part but even within my my job yeah. I don't see a lot of community support for that and i wanted to shout out as i was talking to a young lady named english read jones. She has is a movement called millennials everybody and <hes> what does this above she essentially she's encouraging. Black youth are black williams to start their own businesses okay so every of being. She has like multimillionaires billionaires. I was just thinking about what i wanna. Nisa do but just having more events like that bringing. You know the top in about them together to talk about. What does it mean to be entrepreneur. What does it mean to have social entrepreneurship so events like that. I think are beneficial but everybody needs to come together as community and some more support those small things political education agricultural true everything so speaking on schools you know aren't here or anymore. I love that romulus going back into the school however <hes> i'm going in as a social worker now oh baby. We try no purpose. You know you gotta walk in. I'm praying with. I would say yes we do that is my biggest biggest. The biggest biggest thing community support in starts at home. 'cause we send our babysitter school and sometimes it just stops school and it doesn't make it back home furthermore inside the school and i kinda got this from being a romulus in going <hes> being a college adviser is creating an atmosphere. I fear that's worth learning in so therefore we have to acknowledge that our kids don't learn the same we have to acknowledge that adults in mm people interact differently in san react differently to different things so it becomes a collective effort not only without you know within the community but also also within the school because we come become such a strong support for the kids so i would say that we advocate for our kids but we gotta take the extra step. Sometimes i just always call myself a resource. I think i said that's when you first met me and i started using a saying language. We always say you bet. I'm marie as a resource right. I don't want you to ever feel like you can't come to me and ask me anything because even if i don't have to answer i'm not the guy that i'm i'm told her that but yeah it just go are there into the school aspect like that's been my biggest thing creating any it was when i was a college adviser creating the college going atmosphere <hes> but i would say a learning atmosphere a life atmosphere almost at at this point because there's so much that we teach in school that goes beyond just the books the beyond just the education and then if we want to get real technical with <unk> are lovely melanin skiing. We gotta take either further steps to educate us about how we grew up. How we came up was going on now now just so we can all be aware because that is just taking. I think that's the impact part. Actually of advocacy is is one thing to say you believe stephen it and doing it but you actually have to teach you gotta breathe. It beat a brand and that's a great segue to our next conversation around alright. So we advocate we any streets. We hold these meetings right. We bringing them together. Why should or would areas are people advocating for will in the city right now because there are areas that people are doing a lot of work behind right. Now you know one that i think is like over saturated in this time period the back to school. I mean think about having a go school supplies shopping. You know what i'm saying every time school starting now you really don't even gotta go screw. Oh supply shopping. If your needs you can go about anywhere. Pop up shop get school supplies of book bag and a meal probably lovely so i think that's an area that you know in the past. Some of us may struggle <hes> not being prepared. What are some things that people are advocating well for war right now in the city that are no of new to a lot more of us <hes> running a healthy. Hey that's don't shout outs <hes> the only black guy running here. When i came back you go but i love what they're doing is helping women embracing our natural beauty. That's a loved to so okay <hes>. I think that there is an awakening especially in our health. I mean even with the whole vegan will be like i laugh because they told me okay okay <unk> off fast this year in february and i did not eat like me. You know what i'm saying and bread like it's like a toll call on me. I literally loss upon every day. I talked to god though i had a whole conversation the lord. I say you know what this finish. Zarni is for me but this is not the way there you go. This is just not clear my mind understand what i need with mixed right. I mean i feel like even with some of these different smaller things around health and wellness like we really zeina wake up in the area. I think sometimes like i'll tell the vegans. If you still getting your lettuce from the same place i get my meat. Role is don't matter the whoppers. We become cold blast guard. I was doing so will animals in my community. Ooh i gotta prepare for them to get an advocate for them. So you know just to give back on topic topic. Though i mean but i am proud of us into health and wellness area like you said and i mean of course the natural it was really good <hes> but yes what are some other things which i think people are advocating for whale right now in the city ownership <hes> a lot of blackhawks preneurs in detroit. We like the mecca yeah no yeah they actually sounded that outdoor and <hes> i don't know if david banner came into town they were doing on like a little town hall or at three thirteen shot to fame over there. Don't go work in a community home but basically that was something that they talked about about how much how many black businesses are here in the city like they literally could almost anything that they could think of in a black space. I mean some stuff. It's always harder as <laughter> true. Any hope it's is is that enough is what she adds because he said we got alex black businesses but yet when we look at communities they still donald tried it and we still don't really have ownership within our communities businesses. Oh i'm trying to own her. You know <hes> area four eight two zero four shutout to southwest detroit. Jarrow houses are gone for five thousand dollars still and i want to florence <hes> credit garden. There were forces <hes> our educators like you're young folks to move back to this area. You know they claim it's the most dangerous suco in detroit but i don't believe that shit. No i gotta do dangers or the ghetto no but i feel so like we make the community at the end of the day. If people in new york hat chinatown we can have a detroit black make town. Whatever you wanna call it. You know we need our oh space as you see. They're trying to take over our city and i don't allow go into our next question yet. Okay come on what are some other <music> areas that shaw think that people advocate for will in the city. My answer would be entrepreneurship just because we're trying to figure out how to be more efficient within our businesses encouraging us starting nonprofit or l._o._c.'s or just do something like find your niche and do it. Well and i think that there's been a lot of push on social media specifically will finally your purpose and like doing hard works on mental health. I feel like we're doing a great job. Advocating for you know being healthy not only with the charts. We make like mentally spiritually. Whether you have a religion or you don't are you will mentally and what does that look like <hes> encouraging. They don't like self care whether scan your hair done or going for a walk riding bikes. You know planet dirt. I planted dirk. 'cause i wanna have garden his will but i uh-huh offer like putting your feet in earth does on its spiritually and we are advocating for just being well black people so i think we've done a good job in that regard and talking about the a lot of men you know talk on mental health and just being honest depressed venezuela for a couple of years or for <hes> i have p._t._s._d. From being from the east side you know hearing gunshots. I'm talking about the social. Media allows people to feel like okay. I i had the same experience in. What can i do to do this so for sure. Country is crazy so since i've been on this new found journey to the freedom since i finished grad school everybody needed you if i didn't learn anything i mean of course i learned a lot but they're so carrying impairing everything so you know there's a big stigma with us in mental healthier so i'm gonna say this email me on facebook. I choke on go to work. No idea that just based on different experience if i had with myself conversations i have had with other people personal to me or just in general and then that kinda like bridges a gap almost right you you won't go to therapy. Let's talk about it. I got it for <hes>. So at least you can be aware because somebody weren't even aware and i noticed that some of my post some people aren't even aware of certain things things that may have triggered them ties them at one point so i feel like that's big and it just i would say educationally wise go back. <hes> also post <hes> po tie school. I feel like we do better with that now. I feel like when i was in high school. Nobody everybody was just pushing college football college so yes so <hes> i got a lot more knowledge of course having that job but just in general now. I feel like it's more publicized. We put we push trade schools meaning any colleges and looked at as a down yeah. Well you know that was the big that was almost us. It was a lot you don't wants to a community college. You know what i'm saying on a school about me. I didn't care everybody needs to go to school. Get your tray or do you how your business plan ready that alice. My parents were like okay going to college from kindergarten however they say if you come up with a business plan will fund versus so even the go out work and we have a big three and i can't go all right now but they kind of push. They pushed case to get the greatest g._p._a. They can get like your best possible g._p._a. Right face a three the three great at least you have options now versus four. We just pushing for one thing like okay. Trae scored army but a lot of kids. They say if they don't if they aren't prepared for a college they don't have any actress only going to the army or going to a trade school but at least now you have options so i agree. They are doing a better job with like providing you with more auction thing just going to college because we can talk about. Do we really need college or not but that's not walk right now. College should be affordable is our should be free. They were all of us college. We couldn't do basic stuff normal. It's not a lot of people that i can make the electricity working gain a hell house injury you nothing like messed up who fix it the water in the city basis because now it's like cleaning the water in the city and just a little plug that is a real problem right now like i have some youth a couple of years ago. It was interned in florida <hes> summer at peace yeah and that's what they do. They go onto the ground engineering job. These people are trying and you can come out making six figures easy but the issue is our young people are interested in it but these are jobs that are necessary because we me. He wanted even colleges offering programs this free. I have a question though so who took the trade programs out of the schools they used to being there yeah so that that's my woodshop a hat metal injury but that's another a lot of the things that we had that got taken away way are now being are coming back right. I mean we can look at the liver noise media as a symbol relations the cabinet right now okay. Let's be real. That's is things just so put him back. You know what i'm saying but that's neither here nor there are some things that schofield like we need to be advocating for that people not talking about or or is not enough going on around it like you might hear something here and there but it's not really a lot of people speaking up about the type of things. I wanna hear which i got to say about this topic. I got a list or wunderlist to have one and drop the mic l._g._b._t. Plus i feel like we talk about blackness and we don't look at the intersection of that like we just black and i say we don't talk about you know that queer. You're young lady who got kicked out our house. She's homeless so that's two things she's queer and she's homeless and nobody's advocating for them. I don't think with the the rising discussion on twitter abou- illinois teaching l._g._b._t. History but that's still black history but i agree with you but i feel like you black first and then your sexuality now. I don't care what you do in the bed. You know as long as i'm treating you as my sister mcqueen my goddess <hes> i don't care what you do know and as i the road to as a black man who had the other black men accountable right this conversation asian and as a politics. Can you know i can not size on a lot of issues because i'm trying to get their people. You know what i'm trying to make myself a name. Sometimes somebody's topics are hard acting. I do a good job having open dialogue and a lot of us are scared <hes> because one of the things talked about <hes> because i ended up over his last few years you know being able to really have positive relationships with people who identify as queer and l._g._b._t._q. Whatever area area of the spectrum and as long as they got the ad in a couple more letters we all our yeah he's he's cute. I love any chance i've had the opportunity into being able to interact it's have real dialogue and i mean dialogues to where most of us can't have like sitting there asking educated you know and they're not only going into being educated indicated but then asking the questions that i have concern and seeing to believe everybody isn't it as negative in that respect it. It becomes a whole nother conversation when you can tell that i'm actually interested in trying to figure out you know what i'm saying and i think that the reason why we don't have stronger advocates it's for that population in how we interact as a black people is because we be scared to have real conversation black people. Can you talk about race peru. They they don't have the knowledge but that's my point. We gotta be able to look ourselves in the mirror realize that check your biases and being able to really understand because certain instances some not people still how arguments though what you do at home light that's all you publicize her beyond that is just being able to really sit back and had those real conversations and that's a lotta areas 'cause now honestly i feel like to so bomber. It's been getting a lot of publicized size for fires that community then a black man getting killed from the police decem opinion and child molestation and stuff like that. I sat hard they fighting to get <hes> men locked up. Whatever now <hes> i think dogs get treated better the black people so if the and i don't think we should be pitting anything as being more or less either get caught up in a way game so <music> holocaust. Why are we even having that discussion. It's all based environment so it's just it's just being able to had them hard dialogues but i feel you <hes>. What other areas do you think that we need more advocacy behind within our communities literacy literacy literacy. Yes little babies can't read law i don. I almost can't talk about that because it's we're talking about the law that you cannot ri. I think past they're gray hats start behind people to be able to read at a third grade reading level by a certain point you have to be held back so that applies to mock last math to and just their whole experience as a young third-grader like abigail back because i can't read a third level. Wow wow so. Are you reading. Please kids helping them. I agree grew rap songs. They know the city that is oh my gosh. I've seen so many even special needs. They know they can say they can sing or rap song but they cannot. They will not do the work that you want them to comprehend so function in matriculating life this go back c._o. Conversation earlier around though are we giving them the type of environments that they can learn things because i feel like is some people's people's curricula phrases we shot off silver right now silver right curriculum where she's integrating hip hop culture you know the urban culture and really being able to connect students as to what they interested in able to learn. Somebody's things that it's called teach in school and it's like when i go on a classroom setting and i sat in a couple of classes just based on my job because because i'm waiting to do my presentation or something then school is so outdated <hes> very it's like if you a teacher right now and you have no means of you the technology. I feel like you're updating. You are a teacher and you haven't done something around music or you know woah palmer wrap your outdated in urban outdated but that's how we yes 'cause we had to start to provide you something that they interested in or you say oughta rap song so do you make i do in class now you have to but i feel like i don't see l._a. For a reason frustration when a kid tells me they don't like to read why or i hate school why so i took on my job within math to make math fun however to capitalize on notice rap song lyrics. Let's break it down. Can you sound out these words. You know how to say it but let's let some kids are visual learners for me. That changed how i taught to because if you talking to me i'm not gonna hear. I need to list i need to see i need to see a video so in math. I'm not just giving you numbers. I'm showing community different way. We make make it right after getting we don't dance because when you take in that space you're going to think about like miss. John said do this when we do this theory or or miss jones said when you add this niche you clap like this and they're clapping on tastes. Get the right answer so i feel like ask you. We're not gonna just demonizing. Even is these kids. They know these rap song. Take that same rap song breakdown syllables. Okay what sound makes the b. L. sound fine asong there to have b. L. any and capitalize apple is on night are like don't just blame the kids. They don't know it's our job to find something within our coacher pie so advocate for culturally shall we relevant education follow education reform table governor gill i mean governor whitman lieutenant governor gilchrist. Can you please joy agnes conversation. They do it what i have to make. People wanna see or to make again so advocacy is making people now <hes> you you hear you you standing up for continuously saw k. Nobody stopped what you've got going. I don't know how they pick truth. Correct looms in schools now yeah. That's what i thought like oh white man you know hey these are subjects questions that need answers to we need go figure it out for sale. That's all we need to advocate for curriculum any circle. So what other issues do you think that we should be advocating for not doing a good job <unk> homeownership on away essentially because i you know i was about to light argue a little bit because is that is unique that we have all these people in real estate and all those people buying up these properties and doing x y and z but in our communities we technically not pushing home ownership. You know what's happening in pakistan because you do hear people talking about owning the land piece though isn't as attractive our say i. I just want to ever get lots four hundred dollars. That's next to you and if you win a lot the adjusted to wouldn't just contact the city and sell it to you so yeah. I'm all right here. I tell him that for a long time. I come on. We need a project for this flo back. I'm telling you can ship is working behind a are the bottles pop this summer man what other areas that saw that we need to do a better job advocated for here in the city financial finances. That's happening in pockets to breath. Yes stocks yeah stock market using robinhood to start off small and purchasing and companies that you buy and actually own a new low so at a time so did <hes> what else am dominating this conversation. I have a young lady that i may add a millennial versus. Everybody van essentially saying that. She worked at a really popular museum in each way but it was very whitewash and so i i think that more programming in these big spaces from us not from white folks is essential because i don't want to say the museum but i just didn't think our think that it will be pretty black. It's in detroit and it's not. I didn't know that so a lot of these like well. Known spaces don't hear who we are and reflect the city the advocating for r._a. Let's have a an event this museum and do x y and z. She says she's not seeing a she worked there. Which museum you know it is no. You won't put him on blast. Well i support the african charles eight right museum of african americans vacant and they allow you to do programs and things and such an open-air spicer yeah nice change. I don't mean to put on blast because this wasn't technically a question that i asked but i'm curious to know what are you all advocating for divine already talked about his land and agricultural background but what are some areas that shallow advocating for currently so i'm getting mike feet wet currently <hes> and i will say of course education <hes> just working more so with the specially population poppulation <hes> many well. If you know me i have a brother he's actually saying he's going into senior high school crazy height quickly. They grow up. It was almost <hes> it was almost different for me because my grandmother worked and especially so i was around it but having somebody that's that's actually that close to you is different so i had you as a family. You have to adjust so. I feel like there should be. They don't have a program in detroit anymore but theref- school for <hes>. It's actually close. They do still do community work doc. I believe out of it but it's close so my brother actually went to westbank field so i would say as far as that population there should be more of a bridge over gap because they're so much i kind of helped bridge his gat little bit by pushing him to play football so he interacts with other people hole in are just hard of hearing people. It's beautiful yeah saw and with that being said now he's gone. You know and i will say that. Sometimes they do push rehabilitation so they want to push you straight into a job. They don't you know push education as much so that's been our biggest thing with my brother and i'm pretty much a big advocate right now for <hes> and we're actually getting ready to <hes> help him apply to gallia debt which is the deaf university in washington d._c. Gus beautiful yeah so i mean even just then just having those connections in bridging the gap because even when people come meet my brother is still like depending on how you know him. You don't want to talk to him while he's being in black and he looked yeah yeah he he. He's a teddy bear but he looks very stern like he would fight you. He won't unless you make but <hes> but but just like even how to communicate with people often fear communicate with him as if he won't understand but you still have to learn how to communicate <hes> and i feel like that's been the biggest. I won't say issue but thing i've noticed more since i've gotten into we don't we see her back from communing communicate and people that are different different from us and not just getting color and even just you know when it comes to being cognitively functional is it's hard for us to the function around people of that you know saying well. That's my biggest advocacy thing. Go for anything else for me. Just them <hes> i. I don't really like stem. I'm going to be honest. I didn't grow up. Eleven math or eleven. Science guy led me to be a mass each. I'll say that however i think a ah even before nip mitzi hustle passed away. I was washing a lot of his interviews like from two thousand eight just figured out who he was and i was real young okay <hes>. He talked about building a computer just from gathering part every other day just going through the getting apart. I say you know it's amazing type of stuff. Duffy did list happy. Birthday just passed a happy birthday. Get emotional however just talking about how well from a magazine he was able to build a computer. His own computer recorded music and just meet thinking you know from educator's standpoint of like this. There's a little black boy in the hood who didn't have the resources to teach him if he thought so but if he had the resources what could have been and so. I just think that encouraging and you apply. That's what i'm advocating for the youth because i mean we went to college. We got her degrees. No we're trying to do things for our community but those little babies we. I don't know who they could be and why are we not providing with the resources to do we in stem for steam which is included within them so that's not push for now and black history feel like i've met a lot of people in my feel who don't think that we should teach from a black standpoint join why we shouldn't have we have afro-centric curriculum would at that's not really important and they don't even know how to do x. Y. z. but like they don't know because they're not interested in learn about eurocentric stuff. We need to teach from our standpoint. We push that more and not even our generation ration-. I feel like we know odor black folks who don't value black history i do and so we need to advocate for older people as will royal to come back and teach us or teach from that standpoint yes because my grandma speaking on <hes> the history whatever my grandmother so scared to go to africa. I'm like oh. You should try china. They don't like us. That's a false else's pushing so you know we got to break that down. Get it in my mind. She was really nervous. It's about me going in south africa shutout aaa missions together <hes> you didn't get any size. I didn't get any win at mighty oh you did. I didn't either now. You say the flu shot. I should've got the low malaria i didn't do that. I was like hey developed-country contrary to popular belief miracle with her but she was as nervous mommy. We should come like our little <hes> b._n._b. Bed and breakfast like twenty dollars a day like for your flight and we can stay here for for a week for she was i don't wanna go. Am i sub day. I don't wanna go. I'm not going to africa. I that's a problem. I don't want to go and they're not the only wants to feel like that. So many people that say quick. I don't wanna go there. Okay is sold in mexico shit like that europe right. Let's the europe. They've got a candidate envio. Ghana nigeria likes yeah. All goes will actually be in ghana for christmas and new year's ears turned up league so any other areas that you offer like we should be <hes> advocated for that we before. I just still out actually komo ready right here. See how do we all talk like kamal key and we want to hear what you got to say. I made for me. I'm advocated for currently joe's unity you know collaborative thinking <hes> unify economics. I mean it's just so many things that we can do so much better together and i just think a lot of people downplay eight right. Now in the city is so much stuff going on and it's crazy because the other day i was just sitting back thinking because the birthday we'll find ooh set me out. Just checked me out but what i'm saying is that you know even behind like that. You know garnering the support i've had and i also look at people that are supported along my way and my journey because i'm a very support person i feel like i'm sure you attend to try to you. You know see people where they are. Even if it's just donating or whatever if i can't come you know just being there because i know that that's a big part of making it and that's a big part of unity entity and sometimes. We think that we gotta be seen to support somebody. You don't have to lose just a small things that we can do to be collaborative or strategic in our thinking thinking so and i'm definitely going to get into this on the last episode but really just thinking about what that collectively looks like how we can be more strategic in places and spaces. We are because not just be tune. Our horn in the city blue millennials in detroit are some good places and we just come come together and put our heads together we really i mean i'm just i'll be. I'll be real brief from the party scene man. That's entertainment coming up. We're owning it. Yeah education not owning it but we're alive and well in them space inner. Give a sweetie the policy the politics takes is people that go from city government. I mean and not just like a political office because we scatter through those but just like little stuff like i mean with the <hes> what's the landbank or you know. Working in east financial institutions again in is like monopoly this like i'm just being as brief. I'm not such a known a smaller areas though we run it and moving in now now getting more hips a land agriculture in arts and now here moving with more nonprofits that slowly <unk> like we're in so many places and i see it and i just i i can't wait to the day we wake up and reliable yup this it. This is the day you know it. Can we can shift the culture so easily here just by thinking unify affront and so that's something i think more of us should be pushing for strategic like collaboration and just coming together on so many things that matter so that not only elite are we advocated for stuff but you'll see something when you lead out program where he bit thin- coming out of and you know now just made all this money and we we ended up partnering. What does nonprofit now we bought the go rebuild the hood like little things that we can start to do together can be beneficial <hes> real quick just before we exit the building and i of course before we do that allow yards to tell the people who are lark lark because i tell people every episode our regular people thing you know it's a funny but i feel like air body is pretty much donate thing and so so how are we advocated jay z. right now. I'm just curious. You want to hear what he's doing. Oh okay all right. I hope i'll let you i feel like as a community. We were so quick to basham yes. We're so quick to cancel. Culture is a second time. That's come up on my show so now but really the quickness is like it's a movement really quick and by next week is going to be some and i often feel like sometimes when we do moves and we're trying to move oh for collective. You can't bring everybody which around to the table. I'm sorry you cannot just wouldn't be possible that might be blocking one of the the biggest parts of yield deal. Somebody a snitch. Marcus garvey pissed tonight. Everyone can go with us and it's not it's not even about we leave you behind. Just give what's the minute. We come right back and i'm getting back trae saas it. I don't wanna leave but i gotta go right now but but and i'll be back before you know it play. Call on politics really okay yeah so i mean i would 'cause if he goes. I'm not going. I'm still not gonna cancel him and that's my favorite rapper. I really do always think j dawson. Oh positive that's going to be negative. I i'd say the room full of white faces owners you know so uh came from the project you might knock the door now for oh black owners faith everybody wing in your life you know and i think that we'd be so quick. We'll be so quick to cancel people in this day and age and it's like for me just because we don't always agree exit out hardly ever perspective we have different understandings and at the end of the day we should learn from malcolm and martin when they die both of these men who have very different ideologies around what it meant in the struggle for black that people ended up getting to a place literally where around the china both died where they were crossing over and seeing the eye of the mix because you realize something something it took both sides to get there because we wouldn't have been protecting our own they would've they would've wanted to be a peaceful and nonviolent violent in certain situations and being able to hold our own and be professional. We went and got some of the strides that we got along the way politically so understanding that it took took both you know and i think sometimes we don't see the mini the many worlds we all play in this game and these as white folks you look at each other a lot of real we aw come on. I one thing that when i went to new orleans like so you know we from detroit. We got a certain facial facial expression. Everything and i just kept on asking. Why do these people keep saying good morning. Looking at me funny exposed the culture. I was really that was one of my culture shock for me like no. Everybody just says good more. That helped me a little bit. I mean i say good morning when i wake up but you know but if forced me to realize and that's in our taken that with me since then i'm speaking every black personnel. Wa bombs knocked back and he's doing it complicates. I guess for for this situation. We don't have to sit. Sit back and let it unfold right agit. Hey he didn't make a positive stride so far so like. Why is it so hard for so you know what this is not our fight. We don't let it play out like trust them just a little bit and if all over okay what bothers me is the same people criticizing.

582 Sam Richardson, Joe Wengert, Mary Sohn

"It'll. Back. Bang. Somewhere on the internet to cannibals or falling in love. Welcome to comedy, bang bang. Thanks to durable. Prank gerbil print canoe. Catchphrase submission submitter for that wonderful straight. Submission welcome to the show for another edition. This is comedy bang bang. The show gosh, we need new catchphrase. We I mean that was a catch race of mission. But we need used to have a tagline. That's what it was the show where we talked to interesting people didn't really seem to fit the show anymore because some of the people ended up not being so interesting, but I hope this week. It's a little better. I can tell you that. I'm very excited about the show a little later. We'll have a head coach of the NBA. What does that stand for north? No. What's the end for Basketball Association? I would imagine I'm going to ask our next guest. What that is national national. Thank you don't shout at your podcast devices. I got it. I got it in I would say under twenty seconds. And that counts. That's I mean in jeopardy. What are they give you they probably give you they give you a good forty five seconds. Answer till they what if they gave you a minute that you can check your phone. So a little later in the National Basketball Association head coach will be here. But our first guest, I'm very excited. I'm meeting right now for the first time I've been a big fan of his work, especially of the wonderful comedy central program, which is now defunct bringing defunct I guess and annoys Detroiters. But also did a fantastic job on the legendary Christmas special. Please welcome to the show sandwiches. Hello. Thank you. So nice to meet you you too. What's up? How much does hanging? He, of course, Sam has the new do you call it a television show, or I know it's ones in zeros, and you put them together in a certain combination your face pops. Yeah. Yeah. But it's a it's a program of some sort still we still call TV series. It's a acted series an act you guys act in it. Yeah. Wow. I see a little bit of your act. Maybe something by the immortal Bard Shakespeare spear. Okay. What is the that irks? One in life, is it breath or be it the soul. Perfect amick contaminant. Oh my goodness. That was beautiful that was very moving. I don't know if it's going to come across to the listeners because they weren't seeing all the funny faces you were making doing. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. Where did you get that made? Or did you did you make it yourself as one of those CVS one's really there was a bunch of them. You just mix and match just makes the mash them. Yeah. For only collar, I think from a clown, right and devil, horns devil horns strangely. Those shoes. They're like pilgrim shoes. They have buckles on them. Yeah. Thanksgiving shoes. Yeah. Pilgrim had buckles on everything. Didn't they s on on their hat, say love them buckles? There's love buckles. They loved them. Yeah. Enough of the stuff it really could how long do you think that lasted because as far as I'm concerned the pilgrims landed in the sixteen hundreds fifteen hundreds boy. I will say this rock landed on them. That is true. That's actual right? Jamestown. Yeah. What was that was like it was like that fifteen fifteen hundred okay? Fourteen ninety two is Christopher Columbus discovered. America. Ocean blue and the of course, and then fifteen hundreds some other people came in and the pilgrims gotta going, right? So how long do you think buckles lasted where was it? Like, you know, sixteen one. I dare say buckles landed till the hot nineteen hundreds. Really? Yeah. I mean, I got one of my belts everyone because we haven't found out a better technology for Bill. Shouldn't there be something, you know, in back to the future to when mardi MC? Fly pushes the button on those shoes. And they just go. You know, I mean, why can't we do that with pants because batteries battery? You know, the the the Servoz and the gizmos plugging my pants. Yeah. In heartbeat. Yeah. A heartbeat everywhere. I went you gotta plug. Tuck in my pants. I think prison seats would be fitted with like outlet outlets. And if you ever couldn't find suddenly your pants. And they make a little like I would the future liberals want. Exactly, that's the liberals America. Yeah. I wanna live in that America. But speaking of television programs, you have a new one called Champaign Il, which we'll find out whether it short for Illinois. Or if it short for anything else sickness, of course. And this is a show starring yourself, Adam pally, which is on a channel known as YouTube premium premium which pursed on the scene this year with their karate kid, the Cobra KAI next generation of karate kid, and you're you're just sitting there wanting to mop up some of their viewers. They're watching all these viewers. What can I do to make those viewers? My view wanna sop up some of this shit. They do more karate. And is there karate in the in the program? There actually is I do one karate kick. For the pro from the program, really. That's true. At the very beginning of the first episode just hook episode nine of ten. Okay. Well, you gotta wait around. But it is worth it and in and you say end of episode. Is it literally like freeze frame and credits on this kick? It's a actually so in episode nine we do a whole boogie nights like parody. But like we're doing like an awards ceremony in parody is for lesser comed- is for the lesser satirize. Exactly. Like parody. Doctor demento Dement that he he lost the oh at the end. Did you hear about that? Did not here. He's doctor Dement now. And he gave it to weird. Al so allies weirdo out. Now. It is strange. I it was like a strange trade-off. They had they had some I heard when they met in the early eighties. They agreed that if they were still working together thirty years from that. They would do a swift. It's a really weird story. So I mean, no joke, but is that make him weirdo? L? It's weird allow now weirdo. Al yankovic. It's I I didn't understand it. Like, I wasn't getting the details as much as I heard this. They had talked about this back in the eighties. And then they were locked you ever get into one of those things where like your dating girl, and you know, hey, it's not working out now. But you know, if neither of us are, you know, and that was the thing if neither of us have done it by twenty seventeen I think it happens, then we're both each going to do it. And. Yeah. It was really strange. It is strange like in the Mike. Did did did we're all like remember it or did like Dr Dement come into play. Hey, by the way, it was it definitely the power balance. You could tell what it was because Dr Dement was like literally New Year's day like the new year baby himself. Yeah. Bringing up weirdo. Al going like, he knew you. Remember me, you tell me my name or take your baby. He did take his maybe to a lot of know the weirdo. Al had a baby that year. I didn't know that and gone now. Yeah. Doctored meant is raising him as his own. So anyway, yes, is that all you want to say about the show? Just do a critic just do correct kicking know what happens about to know what happens with chronic here by the show. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So. It's a scene for scene. Boogie nights award ceremony seen so in in that Dirk Dubose does occur kit. Yeah. And I so I matched that crowded kick. You match it really you match it out. Same height. Are you talking like you lined up the frame side by size very closely? The whole thing like match every like motion any kind of CGI with that leg getting it up as high as he got it. Nope. Just stretching just stretching how much stretch before the scene a couple of times come really as many as to as many as two upwards of three a, wow, I would love it. If some of the sharp eyed fans out there were to take a screen capture of that moment and send it to me and Sam on Twitter. And you know, maybe I don't know this go viral. This this this Mike makings of definitely viral. Like a meeting situation sorta getting I don't know. I'm not that really a all that culturally aware of memes. But I think this my day. I mean, I like to look at me member here mayor, and I think this is something I would look at. And I was like it's not for me. I turned away. Yeah. This and it's not moving picture of SpongeBob. Right. He looks very nervous is too nervous. Tuner? There's that one. Where the who is it Andre clinches fist. Yeah. It wasn't for me. Arthur Arthur, that's it was not Andre not Andre three thousand well, he wishes fists here in the Elbe. Everyone. I swear to God. Every once in a while. I just heard. Just like a knuckle cracking. Strums? Those are those are drums. Oh, that's what drums are. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. They happen. Like every second. Too much to crack your knuckles. That's what it was second. That's definitely what I think. I think what is wrapping ramp is talking with the rhythm. Oh, am I. I'm not really kit. You're not okay. Okay. Thank you so Champaign ill. I know of the town champagne, Illinois. We say that. But I get it. Yeah. Champagne, Illinois, Illinois, Illinois.

And we're like how do we make these go viral videos into a karate kid rivaling, right? Boogie nights series. See we did that you an atom Adams and interesting fellow. He's been on this show many times, and then he upped and moved away to New York as far as I'm concerned, I never seen him anymore. But you guys have decided to make a show together.

So so there you don't have a deal then with the NBA the people who televise NBA games currently. So they have to hide you guys. There's not the interest there and they're trying to play trying to hide the mystery. So people are you're hoping that people will be like, wow, see what's happening from behind these green box.

That that type of behavior this year. Do you think it was due to the soup Nazi? I think he could he's he's part. He shell shoulders portion of the blame a portion a portion a generous portion like a healthy portion very small portion. I would give Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld. A bigger portion. Okay. Right. As to the rise of the alright would give Larry David a bigger portion than. Yes. Generous portion for him. Yes. All right. All right. This is my question. All right. So now, why are you here? Well, about to take a sip of something. And I asked you that question, you, you go ahead, salmon, I will stall while you get a little sip of that. You you go right ahead. And I will let you know when I'm done Seinfeld question. Like, you hit them with a really real right hook right up the bed. I know flattened dim. We have where because I want the truth in it. If I soft ball just a little bit friendly interview. Ready to go ready to go. Okay. Why are you here? Well, I have been in the news lately for some of my behavior both on and off the court and the team. And also the league is asked me to their send me on a press store to just sort of clear the air about what's going on. So you've been in the news due to some of your behavior on the court. Yeah. Off the court. That's right. Yeah. Let's talk about your behavior on the court. Well, if you have if you've paid to be able to see our games, right actually this because you don't have to be there live. But at our when people to see you live or they also trying to disguise the identities of all the players. Yeah. The if you haven't paid to watch us, they put the guys in these agreements, so anyone can come in to watch. But the people who have anyone you have to pay you have to buy tickets. You have to. Tickets then who are the sax for. Because you're you're inside be radically. Guys there. They're they're they are sacks their feet stick out the bottom. So they can still run which is and then everyone who comes into watch the game. If you have paid to watch the dinner dogs, then you get special glasses that allow you to see through the set those x Ray glasses advertised in the back of books. Yeah. I guess they're like virtual reality or they're like that. And then they're also glasses. They're not like that. And that they're available immediately, and you don't have to mail away. Okay. You well. Sure. Fair. So if you go to this game everybody there is wearing glasses that are like one I read blue and how many people are sneaking in. And don't get the glasses. Is it worth it? The expense for the glass. And is it like not wearing the glasses enough? Indicated that I paid just tossed. These people say is a lot of these questions are both my pay grade. I mean, you're getting paid a lot of money to be head coach of an NBA team. True. Yes. So you think that's for people above that? I, you know, they're the the owner of the team that's a different job. Okay. No. Right. So you think that some of those questions should be like logistical questions about the games themselves? Just change the way I coach. Yeah. Definitely changed the way out your coaching differently because of the glasses. Well, yeah. Because a lot of the times in most of the games. My guys are not allowed to use their hands. They're not and because of a major part of that's major part of the game. That's a good fifty percent of basketball as far as I'm concerned is interesting to the feet to the to the ground. It's interesting the way that we've adapted. And I think that we've kind of got a rhythm going now with no hands is it like what you do is it like soccer or how do you balance the ball around? How do you? How does one dribble on your team? Are you familiar? Alien with a small aquatic animal the call to seal. Yes, I am. I is that what the navy seals are based based off. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. That's who they're protecting as my understanding. Okay. They're they're protecting seals seals. Oh, the navy seals. Are they killed Lodden too? Didn't they a couple of them? He was coming for C comes for surveillance. That's what they were upset about. What? Interesting among other things. Okay. So I believe salmon, I both are familiar with the concept of seal, if not, you know, really intricately involved well seals able to catch a beach ball on its nose. Okay. And so my guys are able to sorta catch a basketball on there on the on the tip of their heads top of their heads. So not their noses. Well, the noses is under the sack so oh God it so the sack is cut off at four head level. Oh, no. They're fully in the Seth William say, it's like I holds. We tried that. But because of the movement on the court, they kinda get twisted and turned around. Okay. What I've been doing is in practice. I have them practice in the sack. Helps them for. Yeah. It's like soccer players out there practicing just throwing the ball. All right. Get into the game game conditions. You kinda wanna practice under those would. I we did some practices with a ban Danas. And I said, this isn't this is almost it. But not completely it. Did you have this acts lying around while you were practising with van just pick sex? Well, first thing I did was called the owner and say, I think you should another set of sex. That'll be our practice sex. Oh to what did he say? Well, he agreed. The problem is practice sex way bigger than our gametime sex. Different feel but. Just bigger on me, use bigger. You know, they get a little bit more range of motion in terms of their limbs. But there is a greater deal of tripping or there was say because they've started. Now, they're pretty good at they're pretty endgame gametime. Now, these these sound like incredible athletes to be able to play blind with all of their movement restricted thusly. I would say if any of these guys get traded to different team they are going to be dominated the Harlem globetrotter, suddenly because. Can do in this year playing such a deficit here? Yeah. Yeah. Amazing. Sam hidden with the Seinfeld. Do you think? Newman in. And Kramer will really friends or they just find like. A friendship of conviction Venus. You know, I think a lot of friendships or to start that way due to proximity. Who's your best friend, my best friend? His name is Keith caveman would Keith caving would you in? What is key to Keith? He is a. Well, he's a used car salesman. Really? So pre-owned cars pre-owned cars that were owned by someone. They've had their fill of the car had their time in the sun. Or you familiar with? Yeah. All right. Okay. I am so anywhere from one day to sometimes it can be up to sixty years. Yes. Seventy year. For one car. Jay leno. I believe has some that are probably over one hundred years old. Wheels. Yeah. At least the wheels at least the wheels. Yeah. He probably has a couple. If you go in his garage. He's probably like just got the wheel and this one. All right. Yeah. Go wheels are fun. You can imagine the whole thing. Yeah. Because he will head. Yeah. Exactly. So Keith where did you Keith? We started out as friends because we lived on the same block. It is. We started out from proximity. But then over shared experiences and acts of kindness towards each other friendship deepened. And now, even though we live very far away from each other and are completely different fields. We still have a special bond, and we're just I'm sorry, why best friend where did you both live that you were on the same block? What what what town was this in the center of Lake Michigan in this in the centre Ville? Uh-huh. On an island on a on a floating sort of paddock. You both lived out of paddock in the central our families to your family did. Yeah. Yeah. It was a it was a three family paddock got the third family. No children. Just birds. Okay. Where are you? Where are you friends with this bird full family? They were birds. They were birds. Oh, it was a family guy didn't have children. They had birds. I could see why you would think that from how I said it, right? But that's just a misunderstanding. They were in fact birds. I would say I was friends with those birds. You were not in the same way that I'm friends with human beings. But I would say that I showed no ill will towards them. And they didn't do it's me. Sure. And there's not a lot of communication. I would imagine between birds and yourself. Tried. Okay. I bet. I bet. Yeah. Now why though you mentioned your your behavior on the court and off the court? What is this behavior like a drop in the bucket? Really? When you look at the whole picture of sort of what the? Okay. I'll tell you what it's not helping right? It sounds like there's a lot of challenges with the team. I've purely in the sport. Sure, I've had a lot of Radic behavior on the court because at our recent game we played a game in Phoenix. And after the game a trickster demon by the name of as Aban approached me outside my hotel room in the form of a Coyote any offered to help us win games. And I took him up on his offer. So you did. Okay. Sorry. I I'm curious was he did. So he was in the form of Coyote like like a van language in use suddenly somehow understood it or was he speaking in English, right? Or is it like a disembodied voice? He was speaking in English his mouth was moving. Okay. Did it match the English words or was it just kind of? Going up and down much like one of those, you know, pet movies from the eighties. Yeah. We're all. They did was they got the animals to lick peanut butter. Yeah. I would say the every movement of his mouth match perfectly with the sounds. Okay. So that's yeah. That's legit. That struck me as strange. That's right. You would have expected the other way. Well, that's what I'm more familiar with. Sure. Absolutely. My childhood friend, Keith is a prankster. So for a Coyote outside my hotel room, and it's just going now. In the end. There's words coming. It said something quite what are some of the pranks? He's played. He's really funny. Yeah. You're just laughing about they're very good and really excellent pranks. Well, thought out. Yeah. Nothing done off the top of his head like years of meticulous planning, really. That was really gonna make me stand up and say what the heck is going on here. We have time to get into these pranks though, because I still don't know what you mean when you said, you made some sort of a compact with this this prankster demon is that what you said named as the band. As a baton. Okay. And he he offered you the offered to help us win games and help you win games or you. You're gonna win the games. Like, what was the deal that you made he implied that winning would happen imply? There was no there was no guarantee. He didn't you know, you inferred from just his general demeanour. Well, he has a very slide tongue and he's very convincing. Okay. I mean, I don't know. If you recall like what like his words were trickster. I mean, I'm just just even like off the bat. I'm like interesting. Yeah. I would've parched. His words, really? You know to make sure that you were getting what you expect it to get from him. He promised me that we would make the playoffs this year cased. Okay. At least I don't, you know, why don't you say that's a good I offer. But we want to win the championship. Well, we're the position that we're in right now is a new team. You're happy with the Frank playing within inside of sacks. Right. You know? I think if I made the playoffs I be pretty darn happy. So okay. So you were just you were fine with that. I saw that seemed like a great deal to me. Okay. So you entered into this arrangement. And since then, I think we have been playing better. And you know, you see the difference been winning games. We've been winning game winning games. I was gonna ask scoring at all. Well, we did start scoring more points than the other teen. And that's how you win games number of points that we were able to score a lot of times have resulted in a victory. They've exceeded the points of the opposing team they're also scoring points to okay, I was confused on that. And and as I made this pact with him. I thought maybe there's a chance that these guys are just. Gonna be putting up airballs or just slipping and falling and not shoot making any right or eating bananas on the court and tossing the peels over their shoulder making their their players, their teammates slip on them based on what I can see their play has not changed at all. Really? So it's just the same standard of play. I think the way that these trickster demons work is the affect the team that they are in cahoots with and have no no bearing on the other together who enters in the contract. It can make us better. They can't make them worse because. Yeah, I guess that would be very unfair to the other team to make them worse because that would affect their like, you know. I mean, a lot of these teams they they wanna be traded. The players wanna be traded to other teams seventy they're playing poorly that would be that would negatively affect their future employees their families. Right. You know, and all branches on each with each one of these guys themselves like a company so that would infect the bottom line of like everybody's talking about Seinfeld right now. I am. About seinfeld. Okay. How much episode of these guys make how much did he show the cast members? Yes. Yes. Prorated most I would say most episodes place over three days over three days. I know the Chinese restaurant one that was over twenty two minutes. But most of them are in average of three days as their salaries to how much they're probably making. Okay. Well, take it from like like ninety five bucks to two thousand nineteen bucks. If you could I'll be able to do that. And then do you want me to factor in now, Jerry was a comedian pretty much the entire run of show George had a number of different jobs, so and sold and Elaine and Kramer, I would say average out their salaries as well. Based on every job. They had yet. Jerry was pretty consistent. Although he did sell the TV show TV show with George George. Did it to George seem to lose all of his money to anyway? Yeah. Had it. Okay. And then do you want the answer by the end of the show? I'd like it's relatively quickly five seconds. Yeah. Jeopardy rules. Yeah. Okay. All right. With too much of a hard. Bulk Weston seems like he's able to right, okay. What was Georgia's role as a part of the Yankees organization. I'm starting from someplace that I'm a little bit comfortable with. He had all I've done. So far is on a piece of paper. I've written down, Jerry. To him Britain, George right once I fact, those guys I'm going to flip the paper over. Lane and forty five seconds. Okay. What are your I need an answer? Well. Will. A widow baby and. I need to need to change my dipy. I don't think that we can accept. I mean, I want to close it's got to polish is I wasn't in control of my words there that was that was very odd. Like an answer. What do you why did you say that? What do you mean, you weren't in control of your as a ban the trickster demon took over? It's a part of the deal that I struck with him, which is he can control me at anytime and make me do something foolish and. That's gotta have it's going to have the time. It's not ideal. I mean, you this. I would say is one of them because I don't want that out on the airwaves at I'm a baby. I am not a baby. You're you seem to be a full grown, man. I don't know about to have a diaper contents of your diaper. I don't have a diaper on hand smell anything either grown man's like day per feelings. I feel like we would all know we have anything to do with your behavior on and off the court. I mean, that's an example at one thing that has happened on the court and also at home, you've you've said those words on the court things things of that nature. Yes. Normally a coach is not allowed on the court during during play game play. I wish someone would explain that as a band. Do you think has been knows or is? I think he does. No, he's not confused about the rules of the one thing. I will say is he does seem invested in us winning now, and that is part of his deal. So having me run on the court and get technical will stop impede us from. So I would imagine during gameplay you're sorta safe he's he's a little bit of a nuisance this guy. But he is he is a creature of his word and he does one offs to win. So okay. Yeah. Tries to keep my sort of silly Bayview to pre game activities. He's national anthem. What are some of the things you've done during the national anthem the other night during the national anthem? He had me run out onto the court, and I took the microphone away from the young lady that was singing the national anthem. And I announced everyone that I was the poo king. And then I love pooh-pooh and proud and humbled to be king. And obviously, you know, that's not. I mean, I don't know that it's obvious. That's not true. Yeah. It did it did. I strike you guys as possibly. I don't know that anyone who has that sort of like scatalogical fetish really presents themselves as someone unless maybe they have smelly hands hands. Hands with Russia. Maybe it's hidden. Yeah. So I don't have an opinion one way or the other on whether or not you're the pooh-pooh king. Yeah. Especially as a king, you know, like all that's like. Z sacred stuff. So you're not just like flaunting it. Yeah. Exactly. I would assume I would assume so you my mental picture of that was always different because I always thought that maybe if someone was an actual king that they would be dressed in the finest garments. The finest garments that one can buy and then also covered in fecal matter. This kind of my understanding of this stuff is new to me. I've just mostly been a basketball coach you have in focused on that player, then coach. And then you haven't had any sort of Google search of pooh-pooh king or anything like that. If one were to comb through your browser his just nervous about how that's gonna fit my albums. If I start leaving stuff. Sure. Luckily, not televised either. No the national anthem was not televised during this game. No. It wasn't. Okay. This was another one of the expansion teams. Well, was a home game for home game for you. Okay. So even if. The Houston Rockets were to come to your home game. It would not be televised. None of the home games are televised. Why would anyone come to play you then? Well, is it? Optional for other teams is currently. A lot of a lot of teams. I think are showing up at a fury at a morbid curiosity 'cause they heard about the sax and everything and the poop booking. Well, this is a newer. Which was the last thing we need it. So the sax predated the Compaq with as a band Schorr. Okay. You understand why one hundred percent you want any league up. So I had my guys on the court -bility to see ability to use their hands around the court unimpeded by a big green sack. I'm not gonna get into any sort of agreement with any sort of lake supernatural beasts certain I wouldn't do. So you you made this deal with him. And that was part of the deal was he was able to control your body does this last through the season. Or is this something that goes on for the rest of your life somewhere in between more or less? These are good questions that I have tried to get some answers out of him in terms of he is a little bit of a slippery guy. And and and doesn't want to necessarily let me know entire right? All right. Some how are you talking to him? Are you able to summon him somehow he appears in a puff of smoke at at any time? And he usually gives me no warning. Now warning the one thing I can count on this. He has been showing up all team meetings and practices and games. Because he's he's been getting in there working with the guys it's been putting people through drills and stuff. So wait a minute is he just coaching as well part of his deal was he was going to help us win games. So so he's just coaching the players. He's not doing it through magic. No. He's a great coach really knows how to talk to these guys because there's a lot of ego on our team and why delicate mix. They're playing a lot of them are upset to be in Bismarck. I guess. Yeah. Yeah. A lot of these guys have, you know, worked their whole lives to be in the NBA, and they didn't imagine that they'd be a dinner dog Clinton exist until a couple months ago. Right. So so this so as a ban is coming to your practices, putting the players through drills giving motivational speeches. That's right. And then before sometimes during not often, and then after games, he's inhabiting your body, and forcing you to do things that are embarrassing and you've been in the news recently because of this. Yeah. It's news outlets. I've been covering your story because I haven't seen these. Bismarck today. Okay. The local just all local New York Times Washington Post. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. That rag. Does your general manager know what's going on here? He does. And he assures me that you know this. He's very happy about the situation. Okay. He you know, if the contract does expire at the end of the season. He's already talked to me about trying to strike another deal with him. It sounds to me like maybe he should just make a coaching change in higher as a ban. You seem to be sort of a liability to the team. Now. I mean, are you getting any coaching in at all? I think a lot of guys on the team trust me. And I think also some of the behaviors he's putting me through his kind of reminding us all that. It's fun. You know what we're doing? I guess so. Yeah. Playing the game last night. They were they were trying to play. And he had me sorta wattle along the sidelines on my knees. And he he had situation Conway door. I was referring to myself as little Tony. And I. I was asking the guys to get little like me and give me sweet little kisses. And you know, that's fun the fans like it. So you've become sort of. Yeah. Now little Tony the Bismarck. What is it Bismarck dinner Jenner dogs little Tony, the Bismarck dinner dogs mascot is what your job essentially is? Well, I was about the size of a dog. You know, down on my knees, right? I would imagine, you know, healthier dog. Maybe a great Dane of some sort or. Yeah. Yeah. Dinner where the dog. Sure. Well, if we're I to be the owner, first of all I think I would take the sack off. I don't think they need all the security, but I'd say, but maybe they don't want you to videos out there on YouTube premium. You know, just circulating of their copyrighted games to bring that idea to him. Yeah. I would take that would be my first job in trying to get this team to win. But I mean, Secondly, I would hire as many sounds like a great coach. I would keep you on. The mascot you sound. Very funny just to defend myself here. I don't think he really understands. He's he's been wasting time outs. And really. Really doesn't know how to get these guys to close out quarters. He doesn't know everything about but they've been winning. They've been winning. They've been winning. But some of them have been pretty sloppy win. How many games has as Aben loss since taking on the duties of head coach? All right. I'm going to flip over the piece of paper that I was using for the Seinfeld. Yeah. I don't want the Jerry and George to distract you. Trying to make a tally of the games that we have played forty five seconds. All right. Came with Seinfeld. I shouldn't. Yeah. I don't know. He's very thrown by this question area. Would you have on deck? And he yeah. Yeah. What was the question? Again. It was how many games has been lost he's zero. But you say he's not a great coach because he doesn't know at close quarters. How are you closing quarters? Well. You know, we only timeouts are leftover at the end of a game. The purpose of the time outs is not to save them. All and have them all intact end of the game. You want to utilize streak? I hadn't used. Anytime out so far. How are those games? Those pretty impressive. We were not coming in with the wind at the end of those games. I think we these guys were playing they were they they were showing a lot of mental toughness. I don't I don't think they were showing any behind a sack. Okay. Well, you and I disagree there. You know, because it's more than just winning at the end of the day. What is it to you? What is your whole though says a as a coach as a head coach? What's your goal? Are we going to have a good story at the end of this? Do we? Do we look back ago? Those that year in Bismarck, was what do you mean are the players going to be complaining after the game like stories like that? Like, hey, coach made me not use the time out when I was just about put my put my hands in t for time out. He intercepted in interceded. I find happy stories to be compelling. I find funny stories to be compelling and sometimes stores where there's a conflict at the middle of it are the most compelling. All right. Look, we need to take a break coach Gan Bundy. I hope you don't mind, but we're going to go to a commercial right now. Can you stick around has another Seinfeld question for you on the other side of the break? So I'm going to try to stick around. I am merely a puppet of as a band. So he he may force you to run outside of the room. Yeah. We'll turn that paper over because we have another Seinfeld question. I bet Jerry Georgia going to be involved in this. So you can use those written today. All my memory. Yeah. Okay. Great. We're. I'll be right back with more comedy bang after this.

Okay. Now Samuda boy gets we hype to this before the break. You have a Seinfeld question that you wanted to ask. Yeah. Evolves. Jerry. Titular scientists Seinfeld. Who do you think in the foot race was a very famous episode? Yeah. So out of the the characters really struggling noticed. This. Are you whispering? It. Yeah. I don't know. He had those other questions right off the bat. He was like ready of them. One man was seen show flip races specific he doesn't know what the foot races. But really stumbling like the gun didn't meet knows everything about it. And that is what he's just trying to brag that he knows everything and he's like reaching one. Okay. Let's so what what would the number of steps be at the end of the foot race after the gunshot goes off team think. Good questions. Thank you. And. Yeah, you got there. I mean, I was. Yeah. Every word mattered. So is that your thinking sound? Yep. So how many how many steps you have forty five seconds. I would say probably about four thousand three hundred steps you didn't need the excuse me. Someone just came in forty five. Is a Scott, which one is Scott. Hi, I'm Scott, excuse me. We're in the middle of a show. sorry to interrupt, but I'm Depp. And I'm here to pick you up here to pick me up for what what do you mean? Your mom told me your mom's friend from the office. She told me that she needed somebody to come pick her son Scott up and here, I am. And if you if you guys want to hop on it the cars waiting outside we're going hold on hold on hold on. You know, my mom. Barbara boy Barbie said you'd be like this. Don't worry. Don't worry. You can call your mom to confirm. She asked me to come pick. You guys up. We're all going to go to the soup plantation after this is going to be so much fun. I. I I drove myself here myself, also, but like soup line AM. AM get whatever you guys want to start with desert. You can you can I I don't know they put it at the end of that big line. I mean. Yeah. I mean, I think you have to literally to plantation anything you have to go through the salad line. They don't let you back into the salad line that they. Well, no, it's a new one by the mall where they start with desert. You start to say you get your brownies cookie cakes. You do a little bit of soft serve you get nuts. Most the nuts are charred. Okay. That doesn't sound too good. But coach what are you up to right now? Are you be willing to go along? That's not as a band talking is it. Yeah. I wanna go along and hate to have, you know? You know, as say, let's go and then pop up you wake up, and you're willing participant. You know, wake up at soup kitchen are you awake? During these. Curious do you fall asleep? And then with no knowledge of what you did, unfortunately, painfully awake and aware of everything that's happening and usually fighting against it. Okay. But are you that you right right now JOL is telling you that he wants to go to sloop soup limitation Slough? Joel is what who's Joel my first name is Joel, oh, I thought it was gathered adding said it yet. I thought it was first name is Gan, you're Jolyon Bundy at my last name is gin, Wendy. Oh, I called you coach Bundy I'm so sorry about that. Did you? I did. Yes. And I have no as Aban to blame for that. That was a nickname. Maybe Fundy GAM GAM involved either or two I've had a lot of people. Call me Fundy, which is why didn't strike me as unusual when I said coach Fundy, well, anyway, Deb, well, I want to say I have a lot of experience picking people up just dead weight. I can lift you up if you do pass out. You have a lot of experience literally picking oh, my used to pass out everywhere, we went she would just pass out at the Roth and I'd have to dead lift her out of there. She had narcolepsy of some sort or the narcolepsy and that can affect you at any age. So get tested kids. Get in the car. I've got all kinds of snacks for you. In the car as well as long ride, and I know you guys get cranky how long of a ride where's the super hour and a half away? It's the new one by the mall. I didn't I didn't know which I guess got. I got your favorites in the backseat. You just gotta move the baby seat. What are what's next year those free Oreos those well chips like those? What else do I got? I got some toasty knows burnt the sides just a little bit. I guess we could end this show early in all go to the soup limitation. I mean, the kind of good I am honestly curious and a bit peckish.

Sam Richardson of Champaign Il, and we have a coach Joe again Bundy of the dinner dogs. What what's town is that again knows bizmart what kind of animal with each of the of the characters Seinfeld be of their animals like like in a bow. Jack horsemen kinda world like Noah's ark. Noah's ark. Like Noah's ark. Where Seinfeld the animals are signed. Yeah. The animals are a Seinfeld or maybe like, you know, Boston common it exact. Yeah. And summer the friends. Yeah. Okay. So what what what animals would they be on? Noah's ark. Jerry would be a golden retriever, and George will be a turtle, and I have every type of dog or just one too. Yeah. What was that was that before the evolution of a dog went into other kinds of descended from wolves? Yeah, originally, so the just a wolf. Yeah. I would think he had to wolves. And then those two on just talk till you made golden retriever, those two will had sexual intercourse and over years and years of the so what's of of sexual intercourse years and years of sexual intercourse. Yes. Yeah. Turn them into rations of the offspring of these two wolves. Eventually gave us the golden reread of dogs that we see today. And that's Jerry, you say, it's Jerry, okay. Georgia's a turtle genital would say a lane is a goose doesn't say some sort of bird. Yeah. She seems kind of flight. I mean you've worked with worked with those. She seems like a bird a bird majestic eagle. But yeah. But I mean, this is your on you, not me. This is not as van right? This is no you're talking to Joel there wouldn't he say it's not him. No. I think trickster much like a cop has to say, it's im-. If you ask. Yeah. You usually let's little t. Likes to be caught the moment is that a towel for him saying. Yes, okay. And then I believe we haven't gotten to Kramer, yet taken. He was an original cast member of Friday's which was a sketch comedy sketch comedy show. He's also in the movie UHF which. Awesome movie problem child. Yeah. And also the movie trial and error. They're doing it. We've run out of movie. Oh, you're excited about doing it. So what kind of animal what kind of animal? Oh, yeah. Did you just think we were asking you about Kramer? Yeah. I forgot the original kind of animal would he be? It was. I would say it'd be an eagle what I have to get all the Seattle's there there that was -sume. No. Because the flood refined aquarium or how about like an ocean animal versus a lake animal like freshwater versus. Yeah. That's a good point. I guess he would have to give the freshwater people on the boat. And will if he didn't then I'd make him a giraffe. Okay. So an ill. If he didn't if he did after carry out the CNN. Otherwise, I hope I die and go to heaven. So I can figure this out s first question I'm gonna ask. Yeah. You might have Crohn's disease because I was feeling similar sort of stomach pain. And I thought you're talking to Sam. Because that's the first question. He was going to ask. Like what a weird. What a weird diagnosis like a house. But you're saying to Deb over here, Deb, you might have Crohn's disease. Some of what you were describing I was experiencing, and I said, this is the work of as a ban, and then went to a doctor turned out. No, well, I did go to the online Dr. Jeez site where he said also could be exiled. He is that a Chinese web address that sets linked with the powder. You get to have the online program, you get the powder's you get the shaker who's done. How did you first hear about Dr g Dr g I saw them on a. Well, not him. But I signed for. You what? Signed for his counter. I did assign for his powder a sign that at the office. We made these big signs where we putting them all over and advertisement agency. We little bit everything Barbie Desam work in the mostly clear, cool stuff. But it's just for. Yeah. Anyways. Dr g who he's helping me out with my very swollen ankles. Coach do you have that. No, I have a regular rankles and do the NBA players get swollen ankles. I would imagine all that running and sometimes people. Yeah. Yeah. You do see that the guys. Yeah.

T t he don't want them to get bigger as the size of a basketball. Sure what I want. Sure. Smaller? Did anyone ever stuff one of those basketball's down their shorts and be in like pretend they have elephant Titus. And then they then people are like, I don't know where the ball is. And then they run down the court and in just a slam dunk. And your question is did anyone ever do that? I was gonna ask the same question so pleasing, and I'm talking about on Seinfeld. I you know, I can't again, I'm not a fanatic. But I don't remember that happening. Seems like a funny pitch yet. Least. I don't know if it were still on the air. I think it would at least happen in the show that Jerry and George was pitched. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely at least. So I still don't know exactly Deb where you've been for seven days. I know your stomach is hurt. And that's all you'll say where are you staying at a motel along the way? You're right now. Now, you're stealing. Yeah. I had a bad boyfriend, and it's really tough to quit him though. And I've been just kind of staying outside of his place in my car outside of his place avid stand outside of this place. Okay.

You know, what she could also I guess I don't mean how plantation going. I guess I don't mean. How does one us way? How would you go about using what the directions would be to get the bloods? So for her. She's not using the app. She's using the he's getting there. She's using the and I'm wondering what the steps are leaving from here leaving from here. Yes. Going northeast an hour and a half to the soup limitation. All right. Well, you're going to get on the one. Oh, one sure you're going north north take that until it turns into the. Seventy look at what he's doing on the page. Just circling the words Jerry jurors and underlining them furious clue of we. We don't know anything about it. It's worthless. Us. Oh, well, look guys. We're running out of time. We just have one final feature on the show, and that is a little something called plug gazette. I gotta plug pre dish in that the key. Nice and short. I love it. That was plugged prediction by frig VA. Thank you frig. The if you have plug seem it on over to your wolf dot com and put it in the appropriate threat and the engineers will pick it, and we'll hear it and you'll become famous. All right. What are we plugging here? Sam. I know you're you're plugging Champaign Il anything else, you wanna tell us about we've covered. The karate kick. Episode nine credit kick episode nine. Blonde hair through half of it. So and plug in that. Yeah. This is my general Instagram on there, yet get on it know, what kind of things you you posting pictures of. This critic posing pictures of multiple critic, exactly. So not just on TV show kicks from the past kicks. I'm going to do in the future. You're posting pick to those picnics that's kind of like the whole fame by think by the time, you're on this thing. I will have changed my profile to picks of kicks kicks. Great. Yeah. I'm gonna hold you to that. Yeah. Champaign Il last season, veep will probably be out in the springtime. Oh, that's fun. When the leaves start kind of change colors this one comes around. So when when when you're outside and you're seeing just the colors of spring and the flowers blooming, you can think to yourself almost here almost here against that. And never leave and never leave. Okay. Great and coach Gandhi. What are you plugging? Exactly. I can't quite get a beat on what you would want to promote. I guess I'm plugging all the rest of our games for this season. Yeah. I would imagine the playoffs start in April or may or Wendy playoff start. They started in April they do. And and you'll be at least in those at least. So I would I would get your seats now season tickets. I would get season tickets. Come mailed to you. And you have to bring them or are they passed out like at the three D movies or do people have to hold up their their tickets and wave them in the air all the time. Otherwise, people take the glasses away. If you're a season ticket holder for the Bismarck dinner dogs, you do get a locker. You are signed one pair of glasses. You share a locker with everyone else or replacement note each season ticket holder gets one locker, okay? Lose your ticket. If you lose your glasses, it is two hundred and fifty dollars to replace place. Okay. But so the season ticket holders get a locker for the glasses. What about people who are just coming into the game? No locker no locker Walker, and they have to give the the glasses back after they when they leave the facility. That's right. Are those glasses two hundred and fifty dollars? If you lose one mid game, and you would like to get some more to watch the rest of the game is two hundred and fifty dollars. How much of the tickets to watch the game? I mean, it's on a range of what the tickets right now. I think our thirty five dollars, and what are the what the high ticket? Our most expensive ticket is nine thousand dollars. Okay. Wow. And what percentage of the arena is this nine thousand dollar ticket nine thousand dollars is just one seat just one. And who is does. Anyway on the benches, right? Next to me. Does anyone ever buy that seat is yet occupied? No, just an MTC next to you makes me feel a little lonely, but I understand that takes time to build a fan base. And we're a new team and also it's very very expensive. I think the owners doing you a disservice here nine thousand dollars. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I as far as I'm concerned NBA teams play eighty two games a year or something. I mean that is that's almost a million dollars next to me for the whole season. It's going to cost. Okay. All right. So you're thinking that unplugging that. And I'm also plugging a show that I like to watch on ABC at nine thirty every every night starting Jen every Wednesday thank God. And it's called single parents. And it's a funny show and helps me unwind after coaching a basketball game a lot a well. You gotta magin. I never know. Exactly. What's going to happen? Right. And but what I do know is that even if this trickster demon is made my life, a living hell, I can count on some solid laughs show single parents for twenty two minutes. And this is you saying it, this is not as a band saying this. This is me I have not I've heard area t-. Nope. All right. We can take I trust it. So. Yeah. So you are a fan of single parents. I am you seem like this duties? Yeah, I'm just waiting for a t he I'm just by here at t he. I'm gonna I'm gonna turn over to Deb over here. It's a bad show. And you should knock your TV off at stand and drop a big heavy rock on it e. Harry is all right. I want you to do that. I know Deb. What are you? What are you plug it here anything to plug? I mean, obviously the office he work in. Oh, God, I give it up. Would you guys gave it up applaud? Much. I can't wait to tell the gals at the office. They're gonna love this through. You're gonna love this. I'll tell you what careful with big rocks though. I know you were just teeing but forced to say that by tricks. Redeem after that, but words have meaning and be careful. So we don't want any small children to be listening to this program and think, oh, it's cool. They were talking about big rocks. That gives me a good idea. I'm going to drop one onto my television. That'd be responsible. Their television sets are on the wall. Usually now. So it'd be more like hurling one shot a rocky could push it off the shelf. All those the wall. You mean like shell facing television? That would go behind a ledge or something like maybe like a above the TV or talking facing the TV because I think even if it were above the TV TV's are so flat. Now, you would push it off. And he would just fall clear it. Yeah. Would clear I would say put put in opposing shelf. Yep. Directly opposite. The TV put a hole in the back of the shelf. And then force your hand through at pushing the rock out in through. Yeah. Now, but it would have to be relatively high because it's not gonna travel right? You know, an incredible distance before falling right to the ground. Yeah. Close walls as well. Yeah. Yeah. So we don't want kids doing this. So don't don't if you hearing this. And you're getting the idea to wanna do that don't do. Don't don't if your a trickster demon don't do it. Either anything else? Office gals. I my nieces friend checkout. Her and scream at Merrill, swan your nieces friends with this woman. Just an Instagram. I liked to troll on do you troll? So what you're like. Like shit posting on this or. Imagine my shit shit shit.

I hope they don't step into make any coaching changes seems to me like you have your position sort of extraneous at this point if not I mean, you're sort of an assistant coach. Yeah. I would suggest that you try and like position yourself as coach coach to the coach coach to. Yes, you could be the coach, you know, sort hotels coach whispering in as vans year. Yeah. He has a, you know, he's new to this. So right. He's very successful in uninterrupted streak of winning at this point. Well, he is all powerful.

We've never talked about what he looks like what is what is what is his appearance. He's still he's still in the form of a Coyote, he is implied that he that is not his true form. But he only appears to me. Appearing to you. And the team as a Coyote and the only one who can see him which is adding to some of my troubles. I see are you interpreting his commands to the team. Yes. I am. Okay. See you still seem like the head coach. It seems like I'm doing a great job. Okay. Well, congratulations. Thank you see the play offs. And we go one last Seinfeld question.

Episode 260: Nude for Satan vs. Troll 2 w/ Michael Morris

"Yeah. While the distance. Having said, still joy resistance. Star by tactics. Tim Etchells is our impact. Say. Day. The jay's. Hello, everybody. Welcome culture. You. Annual Halloween episode. Semi annual maybe. Themselves in the middle of the year. This week Magoo this year. Do you? Nude for Satan. Troll to do it through. It's not true. This is John Elliott. And my co host. This is doesn't body voice of Patrick Ricard? Our special returning guest. I'm returning goes of Michael Morin play already. So I guess all our voices are always doesn't bodied. So. Shocking revelation. That's listeners. Oh, yeah. That's true to them. And I mean, I I hope my voice is not inside anybody's body constantly that'd be. Yeah. You still think you have listeners now? Well, that's what I was going to say, listen, you're you're I'm actually talking directly to the listener. We sure we still have at least one more because I got no I got another Email good. I mean, it's from somebody emailed us. Great. Af people tell me all the time people used to tell me. And like I haven't heard anybody say that they listened in a while. And I know that people go on and off for whatever. But my hope that there's a lot of a lot of listeners for your sake. I don't think maybe they only listen when you come the people who tell you. They listen lyco. Oh, I would coming back. From the day. We need to jump right into these two s. It's horrible pieces. She had. I people tell me a lot like you guys got to describe better the thing that you're talking about. So I know what happens, but I think that's going to be problematic with these movies. Really? If you wanna know what happened watch the movie yourself. This is not this is not a recap podcast. They're telling this to you. Completes talked to say, I just don't listen and that's their complaint. Hard pressed to describe what happened in the the I I assume we're doing nude for Satan nude for Satan. No idea what happened in that movie. Yeah. Obviously, there's a car accident and the car accident made the guy go to get help. And when he got went to go get help Satan brought them into a place where time doesn't exist, and then he made out with everyone and then hardcore pornography, I don't know that Satan was even involved, though, was that guy supposed to be Satan, the guy that looked like Robert von from the ATM. Yes. That was Satan. It was unclear. I thought it was all right? Hold on. We'll get into it. The should have been called nude for. No fucking reason. Really? I because I didn't I didn't know that Satan was involved. But so when I read descriptions of this movie was it's it's the typical of the seventies har- mix with softcore porn. But it was not. So of course, they're straight on Dixon ration-. Yeah. But there were no money shots. No. That was disappointing. I think that's the difference. Sometimes as well. You're right. Like, if you see I guess, it's it's talion. Right. Yeah. Italy if there's no money shot than it's it's off in Italy. This is probably like a children's weekend cartoon show. I I was in on vacation in Italy in ninety eight. And watching TV and they had this game show, speak English. But it was pretty clear what it was about where they just try to get women's tops. The fall off like they'd haven't go across monkey bars with a tube top and shit. And like that was the whole show was just trying to get them in tops to fall off. And that show was called the apprentice. And it was Donald Trump there too. Or fuck I forgot his name. They're they're old prime minister was scumbag ruin that joke. Anyway. Yeah. Does anybody wanna try to? I'm I'm shocked because I didn't know that Satan acsi had something to do. This was my this is what I got that this doctor. He goes out in a storm. He's trying to find somebody who I guess he never finds gets lost which has nothing to anything. He goes. Now, he goes here's a crash behind him while he's driving. Right. He stops looks band. There's nothing there starts going again. And then all of a sudden there's a car there with the woman in that has just crashed. And he takes her to some weird castle that's close by. And then they but meeting each other, but they're like each other from different periods. Weren't like. Remember, there is a scene when after the crash where they show the creepy guy with the teeth laying on the ground with a knife in his chest. Did that happen? I mean, this movie is so. Nuisance. It's it's I some have dubbing his done in English. But they still have accents. I was gonna say I think we've found out where Tommy was oh made his money dubbing voice for this movie and everybody is driving Volkswagen beetle in this movie. But they've dubbed out the sound of the Volkswagen beetle. So they're just very quiet card is that just like home alone. They don't make the typical beetle noise. Beatles were like Prius, Michael. Have they had like they had Tesla's in the seventies. Italy guys. I'm so embarrassed. I'm not very continental. Now, you're you're more fuck off my game tonight. I was gonna say Antarctica, but is actually a continent. So that makes sense. Yeah. And then. Yeah. And then fucking in sues, basically, so in that mansion where he looks at a portrait. And it's the woman who is in the car crash. Yes. Presumably, but it looks nothing like the women from the car crash. No. So I think we're supposed to get the idea that it's her from context clues, but it really fix them out. But it doesn't really said before after the man carrying the cane and has a duck's head just stares at him for what like I don't even know what seeing it is the same scene. It's like they just never turned the cameras off whatever happened his filmed, there's constantly throughout the movie, there's like dramatic Larry zooms into is like, they don't worry about focus, but goes right into people's eyes eyeballs. Which is supposed to be creepy. But it's not especially creepy much. Like, the the porn sees are supposed to be central, but they're more creepy than sensual. Nightmares? Guys fast order through them. After a while. I mean after I was like, I'm fast forward the rest, and I watched as a slow motion. But I'm I'm under the impression that they're under some kind of spell where they did not know how to use their tongues. Just like it's seem like they're trying to lick. But there were hitting missing the spot to Italy fought against France in the war. They don't want to be doing French kissing anything in France. Yeah. But it wasn't just kissing that they weren't hitting the spot. Right. There was like like mouth between the the between me down. There is like trying to like lick things and and insert tongues. But they're never tongues. Maybe that's how they did softcore because they didn't really do it. I guess, but they had no trouble inserting other things. So I mean, I looked away and I looked back and like there was full on like blowjob happening God. And I put this movie on under the impression that it was just going. Boobs and I was in the room sleeping. And then that scene happens. The first thing where he opens the door full on like man, I turned it off quickly because it was not what I expected. But yeah, it was full job. I started watching it at work. That's how I watch the room. I told Michael which good one to watch it work. Well, doesn't have anything nearly as bad as this. It's not hard core. It's just really bad sex. Emulated sex. There was at the very beginning. There was a woman running new through the woods right wearing a robe. Yes. I don't know. What that I guess that was so in this castle this doctor and the woman he saves from the car there's like versions of them from the past like the eighteenth nineteenth century. Let's say, I don't know. I think it turns out that those well, whatever they thought those versions of them were what they really wanted to do like their ego wherever that is. And I can't even keep track of if they actually had sex with each other or if they had sex with the versions, or no, no, I don't think they ever had sex with each other. They always had sex with like the eighteenth century version. Also, Dr Benson was naked in the movie what we never saw as his naughty parts in his face in the same scene. Yeah. They probably went with the body. Double. Just he was uncircumcised. Oh, right. I see fast. I like I said I started fast forward through all that bullshit. Oh, they give you a very close. Guess I'll have to go back. We're not. Okay. So and and this this house is seen over by Satan. So that guy was supposed to be Satan. Okay. That and there's a sacrifice with the one woman who was in a bunch of different sex scenes, and then she gets stabbed for some reason that didn't make much sense the one who was getting whipped. Yes. That's that's seen was that was worse than the porn. I had fast forward through that more than anything else. Dude. If I was listening to this podcast right now. I would think we were just making shit up off the top of our heads talking about this movie. But we're not. I forget where. So at some point. There's a candle that magically transforms into a dildo like I think it's supposed to be a candle that's being inserted someone's body. But what the there's like a little candle goes off screen and then comes out, and it does not look like the same Shafiq. It's that's just bad filmmaking. Yeah. I know. But it's fad. Do you understand? What was going on scene? Why was that woman? Like, so it was I mean, I tried not to watch this stuff because it was literally making me sick to watch. But like so the guy blew out a candle, and then it went off camera, and when it came back he either turned the candle over so that it wasn't the lit or the unlit end or the weekend where he was using a different object. But it got foamy when he was inserting it into the woman. Well, that's what happens when you things that the women would know. No. Hit in the balls when you're a teenager. What does it? That's a different movie. Sorry. Yeah. No. I don't dude for real. I it was kind of fun because I was like, oh, here's a sexy. I can festival read five minutes. And. Yeah, nothing. Oh, my God that the sexiest for so long. So they are very long, which ends the the lesbian scenes. Oh my God. Here's what I don't get. If you wanna watch porn, you kind wanna watch a porn, right? Wanna watch five minutes of porn, and then really bad horror, right? This was this was a combination porn har- movie up both versions off away. So everyone's unhappy. Yeah. Including I would assume all the actors. Filmmakers, but there wasn't even a teenager would not no. Yeah. Maybe like at thirteen year old. It was it was not good point even now. But you know at that age. That's that's enough for you. I don't know that was. I've never been more turned off by watching people. Laurel? Yeah. Down either. I mean, watching my grandparents wasn't that bad. Let slip a little t much about my childhood. Well, the videos showed me seemed fine. I was there were tasteful at least. And never got Larry never quality video of my. Yeah. And and weirdly, like, my grandpa was the loud one. Hockney? Balmy. It's not nothing status. This movie. I thought that I feel responsible for this movie a little bit. Because when John said, I have all these terrible movies. And he was telling me the titles. I was like neutral, of course. Oh, I I have no complaints about watching this. It was it was not like it was funny off it wasn't like oh my God. I wanna die awful tedious awful to me. Like, I could thinking. Okay, I'll just fast forward and see where the story isn't a few minutes and never never aware understand the plot through to Matz about the very end with that video game chase scene where he's chasing the guy and the guy just waits for them to catch up. They for ways for them to catch up. The guys just like screaming. The very very end the the two women came on screen, and we're dancing naked. And the woman was so skinny I thought she might have. Her ribcage was like she looked like one of those Ethiopian g used to see on the Sally Struthers commercials, man. Yeah. God goes it was grotesque with. There was great seat. I do want to want to skip over it when she falls through the floor into a spider web. And then there's a paper spider. The worst maybe the worst practical special effect of ever seen, and we did watch Michael Santa Claus movies before. So that saints have you ever seen? There's a movie with Mariscal Harte's father in it Mickey Hart Detaille, and I think it's called the bloody pit of horror or something. And it's about like a castle world is like gigli teens go, and basically they get picked off one by one. And in one of them, the exact same spider seen happens with like a spiderweb made clearly a rope and a spider that is clearly say like attacks and just gets close in the person dies like it's not even like, it's it's so similar. It's like one was definitely inspired by the other. So so nude for Satan has Oman Djinnit. That's inter- does perhaps it does. Or they just didn't want to spend money on their own, spider and reused. Heartache dad one could have been. Yeah. I I have a note about the end of the movie, I don't remember what it refers to. But it's a says sudden Star Trek characters because remember anything like that. Trick characters. That's all I wrote down. But it doesn't sound at all. I mean, it doesn't shock me at all. It's right. After was that woman supposed to be a skeleton? I don't this movie made no sense. I can't even begin to talk about what happened beginning end or middle. It was total nonsense. You could watch it backwards, and it would make as much sense. Yeah. And I would suggest not watching it either way. Everyone should watch it. So they could all suffer like we did crazy Italians. They've got pasta on the brain. Now, we're getting all racial again. I just gave it to him and Patrick is. Right. Yeah. Clearly offended. Wait. Can you still? Never mind. I'll ask you actually off air. I was gonna ask you something that has nothing to do with anything. No, well, I was gonna ask if you can still eat pasta. And now you have like a restrictive diet. Pastas five, but you can't French fries. What I can eat some French fries. That's this is very interesting to people listening. The michael. And he's at the doctor's office listening pay yet. It's it's like some dietary thing, but can you eat like sweet potatoes because I would just kill myself. Then if that's all you can eat how often to eat sweet potatoes. No, I don't I don't like them. But fries are like a big thing here. Anyway, I don't really like sweet potato fries. Anyway, I had a sweet potato soup the other week. And it was amazing. That sounds actually good was so good. It was like with a little bit of caramel, and like a toasted pecans, and it was amazing. Let's pecan that's cheap. Was literally wants us to pick. It was one of those fancy restaurants. So the the whole meal was only one byte. Oh, yeah. Yeah. This movie. I mean, if you can find it. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, you probably can't. But I'd rather talk about sweet potatoes and this movie in the so bad. This movie four stars out of four. Pets. It's bizarro Pat today. No. This was terrible all around the title was the best thing about it was. Yeah. There is nothing at all redeeming about less. The here's well, I would say to watch this movie is if you're gonna watch it with your parents or with your young children, then it's gonna be worthwhile. 'cause you're gonna get some. Or if you come if you forget what care looks like in you'd like to say it. Yeah. Millennials. God would say that like I did read a little bit about this. And just from the nothing that's on the internet about this. It sounds like it was a porno that they added a little bit of story to to make it a the over leasable or no way I read the opposite that they had made the movie, and they took some of the porno out to make it. So it got the proper rating. I mean, that's not really opposite. But oh. So it was to pornographic to begin with the added porn added porn. The added character. The character stuff was already there. But they took some of the porn out. So they could get released in Italy. And then apparently, there's a Dutch version that's the longest version because it has the porno that was already in. And then some version we watched I don't know. But it was like there's some bad movies that there's like reams and reams of articles written about this one. Nope. And everything written about it is negative. There's nobody in the nineties retrospective. Looked like this was actually good people wrong. No, everybody hated this movie. Because uninteresting I mean. I agree with Michael I think this is not even second to its number one like for showgirls would be number two of movies of a sexual nature that disgust you rather than turn you on. It's that candle scene. I will never forget. I will never forget the foaming. If I wasn't gay before, I'm Kate. And we weren't sure. But now we are. Why don't you? Sure about Pat gave before oh me, right? Never let this that's deep cut for longtime listeners everybody else. It isn't very. I just like teasing because he's such a sweetheart. Now, we're getting saccharin. All right. Let's take a break. And we'll come back with troll too. Thanks, mister, Ed. We had a call. Tom. Wearing. To say. Basically stable Jason. Who? Then what Michael doing over his place? We are back with troll to a movie, Michael heartily, recommended and had his Matz. Let's nakedness. But the irony is that troll to like, according to the internet is has been considered like the worst movie ever for the longest time. And it was way better than nude for Satan. Oh. I mean, it's bad. It's really really bad. But it still where way better. But I think the thing is that troll also movie. Yeah. Was released by a major American studio, though, which shock the hell outta me. Yes. Yeah. Right. You didn't notice at the beginning when they had the let me see who put it out. Does anybody? Remember? The lion. Yeah. That's what I m GM. What I didn't know which one it wasn't till you told us what the line did. Ooh. Goes. I'm just surprised. So you guys actually watch the movies. Yeah. Oh, yeah. You just you just like spent? Now, I just kind of pretend I didn't catch up with you guys as we talk about it figured it. Hole. I troll to the light and all off aways movies are delightful. Before we start. I started watching the best worst movie, but I didn't have time to finish it. But the movie better watching those understand that the director of troll two did not speak English. When. You know, he did not well, maybe a word here. But now he did not speak. He they've costume director. Who was also played Emmanuel Emmanuel movies. She was a translator got got cast and crew. That's that's usually good way to make movie. Yeah. What was good for us? Because it was so entertaining. And also, the they didn't speak English fluently that director and his wife wrote the movie yet, they wrote the movie in English, and when they tried to win the cast tried to change the words to be more like with an American the director, forbade it. Better. I think that made a better. I mean, we're gonna talk about the plot. But I just want to go into the movie a little bit. And what am I say line by line? Favorite scenes is later in the movie when they've gone to the house in nil bog and the grandfather appears to the sister, and then comes back to the the brother says, I can't remember the layout of this house. I haven't learned the lid of this house yet. Yeah. We should mention. The grandfather is dead. He's a goat. Yes. We will get to that where I just loved that scene so much. I didn't wanna forget to talk about it. Well, you can't piss on hospitality. I won't allow it. That that's a line from the movie it was actually much better read than the light from the movie. This is not do not besmirch the greatest devas and all of Alabama. Or whatever. Alabama. Yeah, I'm sure he is a fine dentist. As an actor. He's a great dentist. I think I've seen like I seen elementary school plays with better acting this movie. Just so stilted like my favorite line is when again, we can get to the plot. Because it's worth it. When the father the father gets mad because the sun, you know, spoiled their dinner, he throws the sun on the bed and starts to take off his belt. It's a little weird that he's doing this. And. What are you going to do to me daddy? And the father says I'm tidy my belt because I've known hunger pains. Through the night, or whatever. Felt one not feel pain me get through the night. Remember before we get to that scene. There's a see where the little boy jumps on top of the. Tenor table zips down zipper and proceeds presumably we don't see this. Luckily pee on their food. So they don't eat it. Which brings about the can't piss on hospitality. Like sorry. I have to go back one second ever Satan? Because there was one line in there that stuck out for me, which was. Don't think about the past. Don't think about the present only think about now which could fit into this film as well. That's all I'm sure it could have been written by the same person. I love in troll two which is again. Everybody knows this. I guess patrol to there was no one more money, right? There was a tro one. But it had nothing to do with troll. Sue and had no trolls goblins and in the documentary that John was talking about what wasn't the best. There's a scene where the actors from troll two are like it's a I forget where it's maybe you see be in New York. I don't remember exactly where but there's a screening in after the movie, they're all talking about it and one of the actors like there's no trolls in the movie. So it's kind of ridiculous. Why it's called this directors in the audience, and he says there's Troll's villa? Trolls goblins what you're talking about them. The same thing. We all direct. Director is so defensive of his art documentary. I'm there for it. The documentary is it's it's truly better than the move. Well, obviously. But it makes the movie like it gives a time that I didn't I enjoyed watching it for like, I was funny. But seeing the people behind the the actors who are forced to act in. And the store behind it gives the movie didn't have for me before. Sure. In the movie as it begins. They immediately kill also Spence an all plot threads. The grandfather is reading a bit him story to the the grandson. And he essentially tells them exactly what's coming. And that you see it you see it happen on screen, and you see the trolls, and you see like this ridiculous green slime that everybody eats and thinks delicious, and then they turn into trees. Trolls eat them, whatever in the first two minutes. And then everything that happens after that. It's just basically that again, and again, and again, and there's no like there's new story except the addition of Stonehenge. Really? No. I mean, we should do a synopsis. I'm gonna leave it up to one of you. Because is another one that defies easy. It's not. There's no elevator pitch for this. There's not it's a deep deep plot. Deep family family from somewhere. Agrees to swap houses with the family from new Bach, which is just goblins spelled backwards for the for vacation and the the family who's going. There has the longest trip ever. Yes. Where the grim father keeps appearing mirrors and like on the side of the road. And and warning them not to go there. Senator at centra, the family bits there. What go for it? But I miss a little bit. Yeah. Yeah. For permission. The daughter also has a friend who she wants to take on this occasion. And he he agrees to go with them without his friends. But the next morning he never shows up. So they go RV they running parallel with the family vacation. Yeah. Ham with his friends who she did. She doesn't want him to have friends, basically, it's a it's a mere them situation with this daughter. Sorry to interrupt. You know, none at all. Like there's little side stories that don't really make any difference to the end of the story a little. Laugh, and that's the sisters entire dialogue consists of it's them or me. It's your friends or me. It's those boys or me or your boys or like everything she says like total shrew constantly making this guy choose between his friends or her. Well, Chaz also mentioned him that her dad will cut off his little Pena's. It. Before that he punches him in the groin. And he says if you do that, you're gonna turn me homo. I love it like it's just physics. So I think we all understand that. Well, that's that's how it happens. And if you get hit again you switch back. But the the the thing that stands out for me at the very early point that I want to call that is the dad of this movie. I forget his name terrible actor he's the poor man's Dylan McDermott or Dermott Maroney one of those. Yes. He does. Look to he's a dad in great shape. He's clearly like a guy who works out, and they make sure that he's has shirts are always unbuttoned or he's like awkwardly wearing pajamas with collar up and everybody unbuttoned except the bottom one. And they're trying to clearly make him sexy. Because the mom is the holiest woman. I've ever seen a movie every line. She delivers she opens her is. Why does she can I? And even if she's saying like, you better, eat your dinner. She's doing it with her is is why does they can open. And then when things get scary. She somehow manages to open them you. I I thought was like trying to read it as a psychopath that was my take on character could not get anything else out. I mean, you don't get much cheaper than Joshua sing that song. I love and what it was rotor. That's on you love. Yeah. Joshua the poor kid just every every expression on his face is always like, oh my God. Triton this movie angry at every line. He says and this. Excited to be in the movie, though, he thought this was going to be as big as big break. I'm sure, but oh, I forgot the in the very beginning. When they're telling the story of this man who needs the most beautiful woman in the forest, and you know, she they, you know, they get eaten by goblins if she's a goblin Princess, I can't remember, but she's got freckles and the freckles are so clearly put on with makeup. Stat. It's like it's like from. He'll like that's how ridiculous this this makeup in his movie as anyway. Anyway, we I I lost the train of the story. Go to kneel bog which is a town full of goblins full of goblins and people who look like humans, but are actually goblins you what we learned in the story that dead. Grandfather tells the sun at the beginning that they can take human form. Which is held a goblin Princess seduces the guy in the story. And for some reason goblins only their vegetarian, so they turned their victims into plants and then eat them. I never read anything about this in folklore. But why wouldn't you just eat plants? Thank you. That was my next question. Why eat humans turned into plants when it just eat the plants themselves. It's so stupid. Yeah. Way overly complicated by air. Planted everywhere where they are. And the goblins they turn you into plants that they can eat by feeding you. This substance that they call new bog milk, which in some scenes is chunky white milk. And in other scenes is like the greenest fakest looking pudding you've ever seen. And it's in everything. So like, the family gets free the only food in the house when the family gets to new Bach, and there's a feast setup practically and it's all like hamburger buns with green putting on. Like everything. And there's corn. The sister picks up an ear of corn inches like oh corn. And there's like a str- like a stream of green butter on it. And it's like nobody would like effort not see that or think that looks. I have to since you mentioned corn Goto a little side thing that. It has nothing to do with anything. Really? It involves one of the daughters, boyfriends, friends and the government which we haven't even fucking mentioned yet. Which was the was the least interesting thing about this whole movie because she was like wildly overacting as opposed to everybody else's not being able to act right? Right. Thinking about now. Maybe I'm saying that because he was the only major part of this movie was a documentary at all. And that was not explained to me. And I demand he wasn't in it. Isn't. She hasn't fraternised with us mere mortals goblins to take care of. Anyway, she goes and tries to seduce this kid. I don't know why she needs to seducing. She just turned his friend do at tree without seducing. But in in this trailer scene is this the popcorn. And there's heat like start. She gives him a piece of corn. And he says I like popcorn and they both start like nine on the same Kabul. Born and then popcorn. Just pops up all around like I mean well. Yeah. Yeah. I think we can all agree. That's the one in the movie that you can masturbate to. I did. Weirdly, sexual because they're both like kissing the like, the your of corn along the shaft of the corn with it between them. It's like between them like it's a little like what they suggesting with that era with the popcorn. I mean, I know what there's a guesting it's not subtle. But. But it's it's so within popcorns happens. She's the witch who makes no sense her name is credence. Leonor guilt would and why she has to complicate a name. I don't understand. But the witch who like is usually pretty ugly and ridiculously ugly. Yes. Like is suddenly beautiful when she seduces him. But then she, you know, pops corn with him and leaves his trailer. And she's hideous again. And she's like, no, I straight up give even though it was quite apparent. Yeah. I was like is that the same woman is that the goblin which she's like, well why why did she even bother with all that makeup before? And she's wearing so much make up that in a lot of scenes she's wearing like big round like cartoonish glasses in most of her scenes, and she's wearing so much make up that she's got like makeup fingerprints on the lenses and in certain late. You can see how thick the fingerprints on her glasses are the cow. Can she see out of those things, but they they don't ever clean them in the entire movie. That's just the things. I notice. And I mean, they are more interesting than the plot. I guess. And the whole plot is just get them to eat the stuff that we eat them. There's no there's no other story. I mean, there's a lots of like he goes the little boy goes to church, and the church's religious, the d the goblins and human form, and they they're preaching the preacher on my God. Like where did he get that? Terrible wig. Like, everybody has the worst hair in this movie and the nineties, and it was also shot in the south. I believe so. Oh, even worse. But the the preacher they're all talking about humans and the filth of meat eaters. And I mean, basically it turns into like a vegetarian propaganda film. The the the wife who wrote this wrote this because she was pissed off because a bunch of friends became vegetarians revenge. As Michael said, it did have the opposite effect. It did come off like a total anti meet movie. I didn't say she was ineffective. Writer fact out there. The preacher was like meat eaters in their stinking bladders. Calling up his things, but nobody calls out. He doesn't even know. Yeah. He doesn't know how the Justice system works. I guess. But then at the at the end, well, I don't know if I don't want to spoil it for anybody. But at the end like when the monsters are attacking the boy, the grandfather appears and gives them a backpack with a secret weapon that he'll know when it's time to use it. And when the boy has to use it surrounded by the goblins and inside the backpack is a double baloney sandwich with the thickest ballooning of ever seen. Like the balloon is one inch thick for every Ellie baloney. Yeah. And I I'm not a person who eats that kind of stuff. So I don't really know if that's what it's supposed to click, but it seemed weird and the witch the witch and the goblins chasing him. No the cholesterol. Your cholesterol. Yeah. That reminds me of scene from the documentary. Whereas director is talking he goes to screening and people are laughing. He's like people laughed at the scenes that were supposed to be funny. But they also left the that we're supposed to be. In that movie was says, it's an important film about family and and eating he says. But going back to grand every single Lima. Grandfather has gold. Yes. There is there's the see when he comes grandfather were you in hell, no, I wasn't. But my friend was and he told me. Grandfather starts off as kind of a total asshole gets nicer like he's really mean to beginning. Then he's nice at the anything helping and he's like loving, but like at the beginning. God damn I would wanna see that guy in the mirror. Thing where he usually appears. But then he also becomes ill at some point and chops off a goblins hand. Why didn't he just become corporeal the whole time and kill all the portal. So maybe she he came out through the portal that could be. Yeah. Hell taught him another trick. And every. Disappeared. He was like, no. Disappeared. He'd be like I can't come back. So listen. Go take this is the last you'll hear from me. He couldn't he didn't want to get lost in that fucking rental house the scene where where he wakes up from the Joshua wakes up from nightmare. And the mother is comforting him. And and he's talking about the grandfather. She's oh, we are. All so sad about grandpa, your father is your sister is. And I his daughter daughter is also. Spoken with with cycle is. Incr- like, she she shaved her eyebrows. Or something to make skeeving creepy. Well, needless to say, no, not needless to say, there's all kinds of shit that does need to be said. So they. Oh. In this town is like mill bog milk. Right. But they don't actually drink it themselves. Right. It's to turn people into plants. So how many people are coming through this fucking tiny town all they do is Airbnb. So they get lots of people in trading houses, scenic Noma hook. But the sale. This reminds me of the one kid wakes up in the RV and says I need to get some breakfast. There's nothing in here. Why don't we eat and the other guys are naked in the bed together. Just wake up nonchalant nonchalantly. Nineteen ninety I love when the witch. I realize we've lost the story here. I love when the witch says she's she's talking to somebody. And she's like, I've just made a fresh batch of pudding. The horrible green chip. And like, I don't know everything they do the food is so ridiculous. Like who's making it and then putting green on top of that? And they make there's a lot of writing threats in green icing. Yes. Oh, yeah. Doesn't make any sense. It's eat eat up before we eat you or something like that. And at the end like when they're back at their own house. And the baseball comes running down stairs. That's the one. It says eat before we you. That's that's that was the first one the last one says, yummy, mom, taste, real good or something. And then you find out that like they had poisoned the apples and like mom eight an apple and she got eaten up in the shower. Yeah. And only love there's a scene where the guy the win the blonde guys that came with the boyfriend one of the boyfriends boys is like any turned into a tree or something. And he realizes he's gonna get killed. And he starts he yells. Oh my God. Like, they should have cut it during the. She just ways. What are you talking about early? There was no editing done on this. I thought one of the most hilarious to me was when that dude who's being turned into a tree and his friend came in. And he's trying to lug him out. The dues like in a in a pot like a plant treat. Yeah. Yeah. And and. Cannot lake pull his friend out. I just it was so fucking ridiculous. I I don't know. I think I had a minor stroke. He just gets tired. I can't be saving you, dude. It's so and when he was sweating later on seemed guy greens. Yes. Throughout the movie. Well, maybe not as much at the end. But the parents are so angry at their kids from the start with them doing anything like the father is is just he's he's he hates the boyfriend for no reason. Yeah. Because the boyfriend wants to spend more time with his friends in his daughter. So we know it from that of all the things one of your dates father's gonna hate you for that's pretty low on the list. I would think where's your bo-? He's not my beau. He's my boyfriend. And the parents have like zero sexual chemistry like believe for a minute, married. Trying to pretend they like each other or the. Yeah, I don't know how they those kids were obviously adopted. Right, right. The whole thing is the whole. I mean, it's delightful. I think that the I'm so glad for that documentary because it really does like make you enjoy the movie more because you can understand this like what the fuck but thinking. I saw this before that documentary ever came out. So I was like what the hell is this and the documentary? Absolutely. I would you could just watch the documentary and enjoy this film. Yeah. I think they show a lot of the crazy scenes from the film anyway in the documentary. So I think it's more fun to watch the movie the troll two, and then watch it that commentary though because kind of you're saying what is happening throughout the movie. And then when you watch, oh, that's what was happening. More interesting that way, you just can't beat. You can't underestimate how funny every single line is or the delivery of every single line is so wrong. And the amateurs, the amateurism of actors is so. Go away monsters. When they have a say on like, they they realized that great idea SIS. You're a genius SIS. When they they they just somebody decided that they they need grandpa. Seth again, even though he said he can't come back. So they held a say they just know how to hold a stance. It's just part of. Okay, we'll say on and it's it's a whole family just buys right into that idea. But they couldn't buy into what they were seeing in front of them, which is that they're being fed green shit and turned into you know, whatever for goblins. You don't piss in hospital. You have to tighten your belt nuts that you don't feel hunger. Pangs? Man. Yeah. I I again, I just I kept coming back to you. When I was watching it. Why don't you just eat plants goblins? There's there's no. And and then at the end as you mentioned like the goblins like followed them home, basically to eat the mother. So they can they're not afraid of like leaving nil. Bog to go kill people. So what's the point of? Yeah. I don't know. I mean, I don't know why I'm asking what's the point of anything in this movie? But and they also showed that they can tell a port that they can just be vanish and go places, but like, so then what was the point of any of this exactly I'll tell you where to tell the fucking Amazon jungle. No, they don't I think maybe regular plants those satisfy them like human plants. That makes scientific sense. I guess us out. Thank love how the the rubber masks of. Like, they really have to strain to show you the there's a tongue inside them. Like if the goblin says something like. At the end the got the last line. One of the goblin says, they're eating the mom, which is just a pile of goo, and they say, you wanna taste, and it's just such a strange, even like, you can see the person inside. It's like struggling to make it clear that there's a person in there or something because the mask does not move. There's the makeup is horrific. Well, also, why would the sun want to wanna taste of his own mom? I mean, it's ridiculous last line of a film. That's. Oh. It really is. Nope. Nope. Nope. I kinda wanna look like look up all of 'em GM's movies to see if the ever did anything worse than this. It's so weird. It's an MGM joint. It is strained. This movie is so strange, but it makes sense that would have come out on video eighties or early nineties or whatever. And because you know, so many garbage movies. Just got like pop video. Yeah. I like looking at they have the you know, how the information is put in by users under under budget. It's it list. Ten dollars estimated. None of it was spent on acting lessons. It it did except for the film. It did look like a movie that you could just make if he wanted like they didn't have real actors that could've got friends to make the costumes and just found some old abandoned town. And according to the documentary of the one guy, the yell shirk guy lost his shirt and had to bring from home and use it for the rest of the movie. Jesus christ. I can only imagine what craft services was like on this. Well, it's all that green foods. Yep. Just eat some of the same. It's probably just pudding. Exactly. It wasn't even slime. It was just putting. Yeah. Just like this Dashiell pudding. Yeah. I mean, it's. See this instead of nude for Satan for sure oh, yeah. I actually it's entertaining. I'd seen it many times. And there's parts words slow or you're like, okay. Get to it. But it's definitely like you watching you like, I just saw something that was funny. It was entertaining. Even though it wasn't trying to be funny. And especially when you watch the documentary like all the people who are not all of them. But a lot of people were involved in in this film are really like their charming fund people like George George hardy was seem like the dentist the father, dad. Yeah. Yeah. It seemed like a fun guy. And I really liked. There's a scene in a documentary that talks to the grandfather. His it's kind of sweep, but it's also kind of heartbreaking describes his life where he wanted to be an actor, but he didn't wanna be nectar New Yorker, Los Angeles. So he's living in Salt Lake City. And it's it's really hard to make a living is nectar and solich city. No shit pleaded Joseph Smith and the Christmas play again this year. But it just I mean, it seemed like such a sweet guy. It would. I mean, I would love to see a sequel about the grandfather and his health friend. Yeah. Yeah. They doesn't even have to have anything to do with roles. My dinner with health friend. Yeah. Right. Oh, and I had to say this just maybe the special effects where like what the the magic trick that grandpa learned is that he learned it like make a lightning bolt hit somebody. That was the thing many talked about that his friend from hell taught him and every time they had a lightning bolt which they were many more in the in this movie at the end, it was clearly like a black stencil with a light flashing. Yeah. It was the symptom. Always the same shape. Are though some sixties like kids show or something that was the effect? Yeah. They would just cut too late flashing by. And then back to the action. It was it was it's situ wonderful. Yeah. It's. It's no need for Satan. But. No. But what you said earlier makes me think I would. I was thinking of the day. I was watching bed knobs and broomsticks have you ever seen that? Yeah. Lansbury a poor man's. Mary poppins. Yeah. Somebody should write a movie in which Angela character Eglinton price. Like doesn't renounce her witchcraft is which she does at the end of boop strike. Ari and instead of for Nansen her witchcraft, she moves to the United States and becomes a mystery writer named Jessica Fletcher and uses her which he powers to kill people and solve them. I will not have besmirch just good name. Good name miss podcast that her name do that on a another another podcast that we're starting called bis merging, Jessica Fletcher. Also, happy birthday.

It's a great movie everything. Like, yeah, I loved it. As a kid. I mean, I've never seen this song of the south. But no, what is I really feel like I need to find song of the south. Just remind myself what a horrible movie that was when you so racist when you find that can you also find that Jerry Lewis movie that is nothing late day to see that too. Clown cried. Or is that what it's called something like that? Right. The movie about the the climate it. Listen to holocaust camp in Auschwitz. Yeah. Oh my God. There's a movie like that. The Jerry Lewis the movie Jerry Lewis directed and and then from release because I think he realized it was not a good idea. And then he stole it and ran with it. I never that movie. Again. No, thanks bridge. Obeys speaking he claimed that when he died he would release it. But I have not seen it. I think it was a certain number of years after he died given time. So he was brittle enough not to roll over in his grave. I guess. Speaking of Ben knobs broomsticks, I think we're done with troll to let's go to recommendations, Asians, Asians. I got something Michael. I got one to Michael go first. Yeah. Yeah. Because it might be mine and another one, and I'll be honest mine.

You mean San Francisco because his different over here in Oakland. I don't even know where it is. Well, I should also mention when you were in Baltimore in that with that scenario you worked in an Oriole factory. That's true. That's how black and white came together. But it's a very sweet show.

With lifelock membership today, and you can save twenty five percent or more of your first year. GO TO NORTON DOT COM slash motto that's Norton Dot Com slash motto for twenty five percent off the late. Show weeknights at nine on MSNBC. W W J Rio in Detroit has been on the air for literally a century. It's like the godfather of commercial radio in the United States of America www has been broadcasting in detroit with a gigantic fifty thousand watt signal since August of Nineteen, twenty, hundred years and this summer right as they hit that centennial mark of one hundred years on the air in August of this year twenty twenty, they got a tip from a listener ww J. reporter Sandra McNeill took on the story and it turned out to be one of those things that started small and weird and seemingly very local. But. It has since blown up into something that is not at all small and it turns out is not just local. It has stayed weird all along but it's a remarkable thing and it came to a remarkable conclusion tonight. This story that ww Jay God based on this tip from a listener this summer. Is that starting in August people in Detroit who were registered voters the trait is majority Democrat city. It's nearly eighty percent African, American registered voters in Detroit this summer. who had phone numbers in the three one three Detroit area code. They started getting calls that kind of seemed like crimes. And I'm going to play the call for you here. I will tell you before I play it that it is what you're about to hear on this call is unmitigated Bo Punky none of this is true but this is the call slash crime that went out to detroiters this summer. I'm. Not Ninety nine. Founded by Jack Berkman and Jacob. ooh. Mandarin voting found great but they do know that if you vote by mail, your personal information will be other public they that will be leaked assignments to track down. So worn and being used a credit card companies to collect outstanding debt the city even pushing. For they've only to try people for mandatory. I'll be connected door formation for the main. State. Where both by. Wear vote by mail. Vote by mail, your personal information is going to be given to the police to track you down for any old warrants and your personal information will be given to credit card companies to track you down for any old debt, and then the CDC is going to use that information. If you vote by mail to hunt you down and make you take mandatory vaccines that you don't want. Right that's all horse hockey. None of that is true voting by mail in Michigan doesn't actually put your personal information out there anywhere registering the vote means registering to vote but beyond that, how you vote doesn't matter at all. But when Sandra McNeill, on WWe, in Detroit got that recording of call they started looking into it. See if it was a one offer to see if this is more widespread thing. They started looking into it. So did the State Attorney General and the Michigan Secretary of State and those state officials held a press conference and they took the unusual step of releasing the audio recording of that call. So that other people who might have received, it would recognize it but also I think to put people on notice that this was misinformation and if you get this, this is not only wrong. This is potentially a crime they gave a stern public warning saying they're working to find out who was sending these absolutely false calls full of disinformation trying to intimidate voters they asked for members of the public to let them know if they too had received a call like this record, the call record, the date, and time you received it record any identifying information that came in with the call on your caller, id or anything like that. Michigan State Attorney General Dana Nessel warned that it is a felony under Michigan Law to deter or otherwise disrupt a person attempting to vote. So they went big with it. They basically said in that press conference five or so weeks ago you know listen you're targeting mostly black registered voters to dump all this disinformation on them to try to stop them voting by mail the you may think this is cute but this is illegal in this state and we're coming for you. Well today they made good on that threat tonight Michigan State Attorney General Dana Nessel has announced felony charges that have been filed against the two men whose names were listed at the beginning of that call. They have publicly denied having anything to do with this call. They've said, this must be some liberal group trying to make them look bad. It should be noted that callers received these calls also got caller ID messages saying the calls for coming from one of the two men's phone numbers. these guys are are trump supporters and conservative activists with a history of making flamboyant false claims at one point during the special counsel's investigation Robert Muller's office released a public statement announcing that they had referred these guys to the FBI after multiple women came forward to say that these guys had offered them money to make up sexual assault allegations against Robert. Muller. They referred them to the FBI for that. I. Wonder Whatever happened to that FBI referral. These gentleman also fabricated sexual assault allegations against Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buddha judge in the heat of the Democratic primary that allegation fell apart when the person they put forward to make those charges against people to judge publicly recanted and admitted that it wasn't true and publicly explained that these guys had put him up to it. They also tried to fabricate sexual assault allegations against Dr Anthony FAUCI. Seriously they offered cash rewards anybody who would say they heard Joe Biden using racial epithets right. These guys are a peach of a pair and they have been doing this kind of stuff to try to boost the trump campaign and to boost the trump presidency they've been doing it for a long time now apparently with impunity. But now they are facing multiple felony charges in Michigan Four felony charges all related to the election crime of intimidating voters. With a maximum total jail time of I think twenty four years in prison. But here's what's particularly interesting here. The investigation sparked by the Michigan authorities deciding that they were going to go big and go public with this turned up the fact that this wasn't just a local thing that had happened to one or two people. It wasn't even a Michigan specific attack turns out the calls out all over I. It was a Chicago Alter woman a local official in Chicago who alerted the board of elections there that she too had received this racist robocall. At her home in Chicago. Then it was people in Pittsburgh, and in Philadelphia who all said, they got this excuse me this same call. When Attorney General Dana Nessel of Michigan announced these felony charges today she said, the her office conferred with the Attorney General in Illinois or Chicago is and in Pennsylvania where Philly in Pittsburgh are but she says, she also conferred with the Attorneys Journal in New York and in Ohio because it turns out these calls have been going out to majority black districts registered voters in majority black districts all over the country in all in announcing these charges today the Michigan Attorney General's office estimates that eighty five, thousand of these calls have gone out. Just in the past few weeks trying to terrify black voters into not voting by mail at. Eighty, five thousand mostly black voters getting these calls saying if you vote by mail the CDC's going to put you on a list for mandatory vaccination that you don't want. If you vote by mail the credit card companies are going to track you down to find all your debt. If you vote by mail, the police are coming for you. Eighty five thousand of these calls. In. Multiple States. Over a period of weeks. After Attorney General Dana Nessel announced these charges today in Michigan. She didn't interview with that reporter from Wj, who helped break this thing open from the start with that tip from a listener. Reporter Sandra McNeill she asked the AG. The question that actually has been on my mind since I first heard about this story, which is, why did these guys have the goal to use their own names on this robocall? which so obviously appears to be a crime in progress trying to intimidate voters why would you put your name on that while committing that crime that's like robbing a bank and handing your real business card everybody might have witnessed it. Attorney General Nestle told the reporter from WWe Jay in response quote I honestly think that they've gotten away with so many things for so long. They thought that no, one would do anything they thought it wouldn't matter. Turns out matters. Joining us now live from Michigan is the Great State of Michigan's attorney, General Nestle Madam Attorney General. Thank you so much for being here. Tonight know it's a busy time. For having me I really appreciate your use of the term bull hockey I've never heard that before. But they use it. Bowl puppy and horse hockey are terms of art. You're welcome to use either of them. I don't even collect commission anymore. Does ask if I've got any of that wrong or if there's any important part of this. Case that you brought today that you announced today that I've missed. Now I think it was a summation. But what I think I'd like people to know is first of all, you know, yeah, that was twelve thousand calls that were made to the state of Michigan really centralized in the city of Detroit, the three one, three area area code, which is the city of Detroit. The thing about this, that's twelve thousand calls the twelve thousand potential voters trump won the state of Michigan by just over ten thousand votes. So I mean this is incredibly impactful and what I thought about for a long time. What is the point of having all these laws on the books in regard to voter suppression voter intimidation threats against voters if we never actually. Enforce them and what we know about twenty six sixteen is that trump didn't win because of the people who voted for him in Michigan he wanted because of the people who didn't voted all and that is what I think. These folks are trying to accomplish trying to suppress the vote and scare people into not voting action t during the course of a global pandemic, and we're not having it in this state just absolutely neck when you accept that these individuals can be so brazen as to attach themselves personally to these phone calls and think they can just get away with it. If they think it's funny that can joke around about it behind bars as far as I'm concerned. Is there a technical reason why cases like this are hard to bring? Obviously, these gentlemen have the. Office charged today they have their names on the front of this robocalled. They've since publicly denied that they actually made the robocall and said, somebody else must have done this in their names in order to make them look bad or prank them when it comes to the technical nature of proving that these were the people who in the charges conspired to and ultimately committed these acts voter intimidation is it hard to prove? Well. Unfortunately, for Mr, role and Mr Berkman Bud year ago, and my aunt established one of the first set anti. Robo calling task forces and so we were interested at the time in political related robocalls. We were interested in those calls that are made that ended up defrauding, he will and scamming people. So we already had the technology in place. So we knew where these calls were coming from and that allowed us to work with authorities in the state of California and thanks to my good friend. Attorney General Sarah in California who assisted us in this investigation but we have compelling evidence that these individuals committed these crimes and we're quite clear and confident about who the perpetrators of these crimes were. They just obviously never thought that we would actually end up investigate and actually charge but you know voter suppression is a very serious matter as Thomas Paine so So famously stated many years ago I voting is the right upon which all other rights are dependent. So if you deprive somebody of their ability to vote you deprive him of everything else in. Life and you know this has gone on for far too long. I think many people are tired of their scams. This isn't the first time that we've investigated these guys. As you noted, there was a an incident involving judge that involved the state of Michigan, an individual who lived in the state of Michigan. So it's not the person. I've seen their names. On a piece of paper in my office. And we're tired of them coming into our state and stirring up this kind of trouble by using false and misleading statements and trying to threaten or intimidate voters. Are you worried about other types of other approaches toward voter intimidation in Michigan obviously such a crucial swing state. As you mentioned, the margin there in two thousand sixteen was basically nothing We've seen the president and the Biden campaign as well. Pay Lots of attention to the state. Are you worried that this might be designed to dovetail with other suppressive measures or intimidation measures at Michigan polling places? Well. That's what we're expecting here and we've already seen it, and that's why we're trying to work with our partners. I am the many social media platforms. So we've talked facebook and twitter and Google, and Youtube. We're trying to ensure that as soon as we identify misinformation that is out there or disinformation that it is removed or at least at its flag, it's a little hard though when so much misinformation exactly coming from the president of the United States himself. But you know what we have to do is public officials is we have to fight back misinformation with accurate information and make sure that people know. Vote when vote and how to make sure their vote house because I think that this misinformation I, it's out there in an effort to deter people from going to the polling place in the first place from casting their absentee ballot I and we WanNa make sure that doesn't happen by letting people know there are all these different avenues by which you can vote it safe. It's secure ultimately, your vote will count. The votes are counted tabulated the person who has the most votes will win I. So this'll be a free and fair election, but we just have to combat all the noise all the misinformation that is constantly out there that we don't see massive voter suppression, which is again what we saw in two thousand sixteen. Turn Dana Nessel of great state of Michigan. Thank you so much for coming on the Earth s tonight in helping us understand. Good luck to thank you. All right. You know it's. Interesting. It has been an unsubtle day. On this on this when it comes to efforts to try to intimidate, you OUTTA voting to make it harder for you to vote right to set the stage to contest the vote or block the count. Somehow I mean like the attorney general said there in Michigan where these guys who allegedly. Sent those racist robocalls are now being charged with felonies. This charge sheets today in Michigan the Attorney General said trump's the Clinton there in two thousand, sixteen by two tenths of a percent. In Two Thousand Sixteen in Michigan, there was something like four and a half million votes cast and trump won with a margin of less than eleven thousand votes. Basically that happened because black turnout was down in Detroit, and so now we've got these guys allegedly committing felonies to try to target black voters in Detroit to make sure people are too afraid to. That's what they're going for. That is what they're counting on right with targeted facebook and social media ads with Robo calls like this crime. The margins count the margin certainly counted in two thousand sixteen in their counting on it again, and so as we get into this final stretch here, we are seeing these efforts to to chip away democratic margins to make it harder to vote for democratic. Likely Democratic voters. Everywhere. They can particularly places where Republicans hold power today. For example, was the day in Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott Orders that he ordered this today you order that. He's changed his mind. So forget the previous voting plan in Texas forget what Texas counties were already doing. He said today with one day's notice that as of tomorrow Texas counties have to remove all their dropbox locations for people to drop off their ballots. Now, the counties have installed lots of these drop off locations for ballots in Travis County or Austin is there's four different places to drop off your ballots in Harris, county, which is one of the biggest counties in the country more than four point, six, million people live in that one county. There have been a dozen different places where you can drop off ballots. In all these counties, they've been advertising all their remote drop off locations for your ballots for weeks. They've had these remote drop off locations up and running for weeks. There are even pull observers that are stationed at the drop off locations to make all sides comfortable that everything's kosher and all these places you can drop off your ballots. It's all been up and running in Texas. But. Governor Abbot today with no warning said, all of those sites must be shut down tomorrow. One day's notice he has proclaimed with a proclamation today that there can only be one drop off location per county as of tomorrow. So like Harris, county, which includes Houston. Harris County pick one. You have to close eleven of your voting sites. To Clear Harris County, geographically is roughly the size of Rhode Island. It's nearly two thousand square miles more than four point, six, million people live there. They have to close eleven of the twelve sites where people have been dropping off ballots. You only get one from here on out you get one day's notice to make the call. Nervous much, Texas Republicans. I mean, it's true in lots of small lightly populated rural Texas counties maybe only having one drop off site is not going to make that big of a difference but in big diverse urban counties literally big two Thousand Square Mile counties where almost all of the democratic vote will come from in Texas. This is a last minute notice shutdown to try to keep people from being able to vote. The League of United Latin American citizens, the civil rights group Lou luck has already announced tonight that they are going to sue the Texas governor tonight to try to stop this but the Texas governor is trying to make this go into effect tomorrow. So we shall see. In Pennsylvania crucial swing state of Pennsylvania, we're seeing a whole bunch of things coming together along these lines all at once you'll remember the president in the debate on Tuesday night saying bad things happen in Philadelphia. Telling, his supporters that they need to go into the polls and watch very carefully because bad things happen in Pennsylvania. Excuse me Philadelphia. Trump campaign people this week did try to illegally get into the facilities in Pennsylvania where people were picking up absentee ballots at satellite election offices in Philadelphia earlier this week local election laws do not allow poll-watchers from campaigns at sites like that. So the trump campaign, folks were turned away, and now the trump campaign is trumpeting the fact that there folks were turned away and not allowed to do something illegal. As if that's some sort of Nevada nefarious sign of fraud in Philadelphia. The Federal Department of Justice the trump appointed us attorney in Pennsylvania last week put out that bizarre press release trumpeting the start of a federal investigation into ballots being discarded in Pennsylvania. The you turn going out of his way to save they were definitely trump ballots. The White House, the president, the trump campaign, all jumping all over that with the help of the US Justice Department when it turns out not to have been all trump ballots and just to have been a mistake that was caught and fixed right away at the local level. But not before the trump side tried to turn it into a national rallying cry about the election being stolen by the Democrats in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania is one of these states where areas outside the major cities tend to vote Republican and the cities tend to vote more democratic. Course, all that matters for the Electoral College who wins the most votes statewide. But that creates this internal dynamic in the state where the Republican Party tries to demonize and shutdown and make as inconvenient as possible. The vote that comes from the cities in their state. That's why Republicans are hyping Philadelphia so much. They want to win Pennsylvania well, then they WANNA target Philadelphia to tamp down the voting in the biggest source of democratic votes in the state. In Philadelphia, the local Republican Party chairman has just announced that the party intends to have poll-watchers at every single polling station in the entire city of Philadelphia which means the Republican Party plans to have like sixteen hundred Republican poll-watchers in polling places just in Philadelphia. At what could possibly go wrong Bar Gilman at the Atlantic magazine reporting last week that Republican Party officials in Pennsylvania, closely studied the voting in the last election in the primary election specifically to prepare themselves for all the different ways they're going to try to get people's ballots disqualified now in the general election that's Democratic officials in Pennsylvania to re up their efforts to try to teach voters how to fill out and submit and sign their ballots absolutely perfectly since we now know that Republicans will be looking for any way any reason any opening to get your ballot thrown out His the season this is how they are competing this year. Yes sure they'd like there are people vote more than that. They want your vote if you're not gonNa vote Republican they want your vote to be either never cast in the first place or never counted. It's Republicans against voting and everybody else voting against them. But in Pennsylvania specifically where Clinton lost to trump in two thousand sixteen by less than three quarters of one percent right in Pennsylvania specifically. Where right now they're leaning so hard on the vote where they're trying to nationally demonize the whole idea of democratic votes in Philadelphia. Today Republicans took a giant leap forward and their aggression in terms of what they are trying to do to the elections specifically in that state now, I'll tell you this is a live issue and a developing story. The Republicans in the state legislature are trying to ram this through right now this week if they do it, I'm telling you right now the Republican controlled legislatures are going to try to ram it through in their states as well. Democrats are trying to sound a sort of national alarm about what Republicans are trying to do in Pennsylvania right now they are fighting it like you can't believe it's going to be decided very quickly perhaps tomorrow. We're GONNA take a quick break. When we come back, I'll tell you what it is. The Republicans are trying to do in Pennsylvania, this is a whole new gambit from them. We've got a live report from Pennsylvania, from somebody right in the middle of that fight. That's next stay with us. Hi I'm Brooke and Marisha and where the hosts of even the rich a show about people with. Money and a lot of feelings Brooke.

After the presidential debate, the local paper in Philadelphia helpfully explained to its readers why it was false for the president to claim in the debate that there were some kind of voting shenanigans happening in the city of Philadelphia and that Republican poll-watchers wrongfully being blocked from Philadelphia polling places. The Philadelphia Inquirer noted in its coverage. First of all that quote, the trump campaign has no poll-watchers approved to work in Philadelphia. At the moment also quote there are no actual polling places open in Philadelphia right now. And other words the only problem with the president's claim that trump campaign poll-watchers were blocked from polling places in. Philadelphia. Is that in the city right now there are no poll-watchers and there are no polling places from them to be blocked. But other than that. Nailed it. What had actually happened is that trump campaign people had tried illegally to get into a place where people could pick up absentee ballots in Philadelphia they're not allowed there neither campaigns poll-watchers allowed in a facility like that but that's it. That's all that happened. So the local paper in Philly responded to the president's election fraud claim by just calling bull punky on it and kind of laughing in the president's face in the process. Republican lawmakers in Pennsylvania on the other hand, they had a very different reaction. This was the headline in the Philadelphia Inquirer the very next day quote Pennsylvania Republicans want to create and control and election integrity panel with subpoena power. Washington Post and their coverage described the committee that the Republicans in the state legislature want to create as having quote wide ranging powers to investigate the vote. Including the ability to subpoena election officials and members of the postal service while the election and vote counting are still in progress. Pennsylvania Democrats expressed alarm Wednesday that the proposed committee in the Republican controlled chamber could disrupt the election by subpoenaing ballots and by bringing election officials and others to testify before the vote count has been certified Republican State Rep Garth d Everett, proposed the resolution and defended it as a way to learn from the twenty twenty election after the fact but he conceded that the committee's work could be done before the voting has been completed. The Guy who proposed the committee was trying to make it sound as innocuous as possible. The Republican leader in the Pennsylvania House went ahead and just said the quiet out loud claiming that recent court rulings ensuring more votes will be counted in Pennsylvania quote injected chaos into the general election and that this new committee the Republicans want to form the legislature will quote ensure the legislature can act as a check on this hijacked process. Judge's ruling that voted that valid should be counted with the Republican controlled legislature can check that. County elections officials in Pennsylvania. The folks who are actually administering this election. They're telling the legislature that instead of doing this new committee to investigate the election while it still underway, it would be super helpful instead if the legislature could quote focused to making changes that could help improve the election. Elections directors have been begging the legislature since this spring to let county start counting this year's high volume of mail in ballots before Election Day so that vote counting doesn't stretch on for days or weeks after election day. But Republicans do not WanNa do that they do not want a quick and efficient counting of votes. They do not see that is in their interests this year at least not in Pennsylvania. Days or weeks of ballot-counting after election day that period of manufactured crisis in a state that could very easily and deciding the presidential election well, with the Republicans New Election Integrity Committee in place raising all kinds of doubts about the vote and subpoenaing uncounted ballots and subpoenaing elections, officials, and postal workers are bringing them in for questioning in the middle of the vote. And do all that until you feel like maybe there's no way to ever know who really won right. And then the legislature will just pick a slate of electors that they think most approximates whatever the vote might have been since the real vote of course can't be discerned such a mess. That's there. Sweet spot this year. That's what they're aiming at. Sure. They'd like to win. But especially in places when they think they might not or they think they will not. They'd rather make sure that it appears that nobody won and they've had to take control. As Democrats in the Pennsylvania, House tried and failed to stop this measure from being voted out of committee. On. Democratic legislator said in protest. He said it loudly quote democracies slowly. And I think this bill would be a fatal blow to our democracy is alive fight right now in Pennsylvania that lawmaker joins us next stay with us. We get support from Madison read it might be hard to get to a salon right now or maybe the expenses holding you back but I'm about call her my own hair at home something I never thought I'd do and a fraction of the cost of going to the salon. All. Thanks to Madison Reed I've been hearing about Madison Reed for awhile now, my friend Cat told me how happy she was with her results and she even sent me a picture in her hair really does look great. So I went on their website they walked me through every step of the process to make sure I picked my perfect shade my Kit just arrived and I'm super excited to try it out. You can get multidimensional color starting at just twenty two dollars at Madison Dash Reed Dot Com. Use Our code motto and you'll get ten percent off plus free shipping on your first color kit. Again that's Code Matto at Madison Dash. Reed Dot Com. Democracies. Die Slowly and I think that this bill would be a fatal blow to our democracy. When we talk about what was just reviewed? This. Guess, we're calling committee on election integrity has no integrity has none we heard the president last night say bad things happen in Philadelphia the reality is bad things are happening in this committee. This is a bad bill that should never have been brought up this unacceptable and despicable piece of legislation. Thank you for your comments and this agenda shelving Mr Speaker. I'm not finished I MR chairman you are not finish you. Finish like why can't even think you should be allowed to finish I was elected just like you. If you live longer if you would lower your tone can tell me to lower my tone but I'm not gonNA lower when we're talking about democracy and people's votes, this bill would allow ballots to be subpoenaed. Typically. Says you CAN'T SUBPOENA BALLOT IT WORK MR MR chairman. Mr Chairman. Contract in the constitution is. A lot of things are in the constitution that resolution is ignoring including. The fact that folks have a right to have a free and fair election, which this is going to blow out. This is unacceptable Mr Chairman and I will get. Time I know and I'm glad that you're keeping count because this is unacceptable and I am so disappointed that you would even bring this up when I read this and it had your name when I was so disappointed. You should be to. You should be ashamed. Okay. then. I'll make a motion. You can make whatever points you want. You're not gonNA shut me up. You you're out of order you've been out of hey. You're sitting out of order wherever The member will have if you. Don't get to. Threaten Him with securely get your member of security come. DRAGGED ME OUT MR chairman get your member under control. I missed the Mr Mr Chompy you're not gonNA. Get me under control you need to make a complaint getting Malcolm Kenyatta under control. Making a motion doing this this this this your caucus is acting more like a cult. Then it's acting like a caucus and I'm. Making personal I am ending my statements there. This is personal because the democracy is personal to me, it should be personal to you. Know One is getting Malcolm Kenya under control your the moment their representative Elkan Yada is trying to stop what's happening. In Pennsylvania, the Democrats in the legislature, they're trying to stop it Republicans in Pennsylvania. This is potentially going to end up being a story of serious national significance. They are trying at this late date to create a brand new select election integrity committee that they're giving subpoena power to investigate the twenty twenty election in the middle of the twenty twenty election. You heard Representative Kenyatta they're introduced a motion to table that altogether that's a Republican controlled committee in that motion failed. But this fight is not over yet and the national spotlight on. This is only getting hotter. Joining us now is representative candidates Democratic member of the Pennsylvania House of. Representatives. He serves the part of Philadelphia County Representative Sir thanks very much for being here I. Appreciate Your time tonight. Thank you so much. Rachel, and thank you for talking about this I. Say all the time what happens in state legislatures matter. Yeah and Boy. Does it feel like it's easy to understand the national implications of what happens in state legislatures right now but I don't know that we're seeing in any other state a last minute move by a Republican controlled legislature to try to institute a new. To control the vote and to potentially the way that the democratic excuse me that the presidential election is is is conducted I is, is this something you guys newest coming or was it as much a surprise to you as it was to those of US outside the State? Usually, we get twenty four hours notice before made hearing of the bills that are coming up they. Are inboxes you know I think right before the presidential debate and for Mumps now Rachel they've been trying to throw sand into the gears of our democracy, and now they're standing up this election integrity committee that as I said, has no integrity to investigate the sand. You know they have parodied of president trump's fever dreams around voter fraud but here's the reality. The only fraud I see is Donald Trump. He lies to the American people he cheats on his taxes and now he was. Trying to steal in election in unfortunately, Republicans in Harrisburg and Republicans across the country are more than happy to help him destroy our democracy. They have decided Rachel that they're not going to contest this election on policy or on the progress that we need to see on climate change in healthcare. In this Kobe nineteen pandemic, they're not gonNA have the election on those terms they are doing everything. They can to take away the power of our vote here in Pennsylvania to maintain their power. We've seen so many different stories out of Pennsylvania in tight period of time just over the past few weeks in terms of the trump campaign the national republican party working through the local Republican officials in the state and trump appointed federal officials in the state to try to essentially burn a hole through Pennsylvania voting plans through sheer dint of attention and. Demonizing, the idea of any democratic votes out of Pennsylvania and specifically Philadelphia I mean from from the Federal Investigation weirdly announced by the US attorney before he sort of recanted it before anybody figured out what had actually happened there to the president talking about bad things happening in Philadelphia from the debate stage totally mischaracterizing this thing with with poll-watchers calling for his supporters to turn out in great numbers and go watch the polls while he's talking about Pennsylvania. From the outside it feels like they've got everything they've got trained on trying to intimidate people voting, trying to screw up the voting process and Pennsylvania how much confidence do you have that they'll succeed at that or do you feel like? Pennsylvania knows what it's doing in terms of carrying out this election. This is noise but things will go things will go like like ought to. So I think people need to understand and I've been doing my level best as elected official here to reinforce the fact that we have free and fair. Here in Pennsylvania, we have saints elections here in Pennsylvania is safe to cast your ballot by mail or any other way you choose but I think one of the things we have to be focused on and I said it right at the top is on our state legislature Rachel are we get sworn in January but the term for state legislature actually starts on December first in so you know a couple days ago I went on a five day tour across the state helping colleagues in future colleagues get to the House to win back this chamber which we have held for a decade if we are able to win the. Chamber in November we can stop this. We can stop it, but people have to get engaged and we need to have the spotlight trained on what they're doing and your training the spotlight on it right now, and what happened yesterday with Chairman ever it you know it wasn't about me. He was trying to silence me because I was a making clear what their scheme was to try to disenfranchise black and Brown people in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh into silence. The voices of people of conscience who are rising up across the state who want to cast their ballot again, Donald Trump and for a different vision on that Joe Biden represents. And At the end of the day, none of us can be silent about what's going on and so if people want to stop this, they need to get involved with the HCC they need to get involved with local State House races here and in Pennsylvania and they need to call Speaker Cutler call chairman ever call leader Benny Hoff and he's held them to stop trying to disrupt the vote and to get their. Hands off of our democracy they tried to silence me yesterday and I would not be silenced and I think every single one of us should raise our voice about what is happening because they can't win fair and square they are committed to cheating and I. Think it is. It is a shame to watch this Pennsylvania House Republican Caucus. As I said, go from a caucus to cult I'm ashamed to see an actor. State Representative Malcolm Kenya Democratic Member of the Pennsylvania House, of Representatives Sir. Thank you for helping us understand I know that you are right in the middle of this, and as you're saying, not just in your district statewide keep a surprise. This is a really really important national story. Thank you so much for talking about it reaching. Representative cannot was saying there about the focus on the state legislatures he's right and he's not just saying that because he's in a state legislature and he thinks his local fights are important. What's going to happen in state legislators? particularly in swing states with Republican controlled state legislatures is going to be really really really important and we need to start building up muscles in the national media and in terms of what we pay attention to just as citizens nationwide to watch for things in these legislatures. Particularly Republican controlled legislatures in swing states to watch for these kinds of scams like they're trying. The Republicans are trying to pull off in Pennsylvania a late breaking never heard of before new select committee that's going to oversee the election that they're just forming in the middle of the election and they're giving themselves control over it and subpoena power. Really Republicans control the legislature in Pennsylvania and in Arizona and in Florida and in Michigan and North Carolina and Wisconsin, and all of those states are going to be hard fought and what the legislature tries to do in those states to potentially mess with the vote to mess with the count to mess with the assignment and election of electors to the electoral college that is going to be national news in all of those states, and we gotta start training our sights on that stuff. Right now all right. We'll be right back actually with a bit of breaking news about somebody at the White House a very high profile person at the White House has just been diagnosed with covid. I'll have that story for you when we come back stay with us. Want. To let you know about some news that has broken late tonight does first reported by Bloomberg News. It's about hope Hicks one of the president's closest aides. and longest serving advisors shade has today tested positive for the Corona Virus Ho picks, of course is a very high profile White House. Staffer, you might remember that she left the White House for a while to go work for Fox I believe but then she came back to the White House in February of this year. Now, the White House has not made any kind of announcement direct comment about her contracting Cova, but the initial report from Bloomberg has now been matched by NBC. News. And by other news outlets. And we of course, hope for the best from his Hicks, for her own sake. Hopefully, this'll be a full and quick recovery for her but. One additional thing to worry about here is this. Hope Hicks traveled with the President on Air Force One today's ago. On Tuesday to and from the presidential debate here she is stepping off the plane in Cleveland without a mask. Then yesterday the day before she tested positive she traveled with the president to his rally in Minnesota, and for that right she was in even closer quarters with President Xi road with him on Marine One on the president's helicopter, and again, nobody wears masks around this president. He likes he makes fun of people who wear masks. White House official has told NBC News Tonight that contact tracing has been done and that quote the appropriate notifications and recommendations have been made. Sure, have been. Somebody positive. Not Wearing a mask that close to the president in that tight quarters for that long approximity. That's a big deal. We'll be right back. I can guarantee you have not heard about this and that you going to be interested. On the night that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died. One of the things that happened that night that never made any news because the news about the justice just overwhelmed everything. Is that that night the Muller report got unredacted. A bunch of at least here's an example of what came out from behind the block reduction boxes that Friday night footnote forty, nine on page twenty, three of the original version of Muller's report that we'd all seen described efforts by that Russian troll farm to Criticize Hillary, Clinton's record of Secretary of state. And then it says in that footnote, the IRA Internet research agency also used other techniques such as redacted, redacted, productive, productive well that was just unredacted by court order that Friday night that Justice Ginsburg died. Now, we can see that actually said it said quote in early Twenty Fifteen Ira Internet research agency employees published an online adult published on online adult video sites a purported adult film involving. Hillary. Clinton. That had been redacted. Now, it's not good to know. Also check out page twenty-seven seven. There was a big blacked out chunk in the middle of the is we had seen it newly unredacted at sites one Internet Research Agency boss saying that an Internet postings quote Clinton should be portrayed supporter of illegal Latinos from poor countries of South America, creeping across the US border gangsters, drug cartels of Latin America American. Muslim migrants, the emphasis should be made on. The role of so-called undocumented Democrats in the elections that was the Russian instruction to Russian trolls for what they should contribute to the campaign about Hillary Clinton in two thousand sixteen. Good to know right. Also good do now especially when right now trump's director of national intelligence and Senate Republicans are promoting a conspiracy theory of Russian origin that the Clinton campaign somehow invented the whole trump Russia scandal as well. That was just some of the new information that was redacted two weeks ago went largely unremarked upon because when and where it happened in the news. But now the same judge who ordered those reactions if you weeks ago has told the Justice Department that they need to release a further fifteen pages of millers report. These are blacked out sections that relate to Muller's decisions about who to charge and who not to charge discussions related to the Democratic Party getting hacked in two, thousand sixteen and the trump campaign being interested in those documents and when wikileaks released them that. June? Fifteen. Pages of the mole report getting unredacted the specific date by which the Justice Department has to unredacted the stuff I kid you not the judge says. On or before November? Second Twenty. Twenty. So on the eve literally the eve the day before the presidential election, fifteen more pages, the Muller report including potentially why they didn't charge the president. Night before the election. That does the first tonight. We'll see you again tomorrow the legal matter show weeknights at nine eastern on MSNBC. Hey, guys Willie geist here this week on the Sunday sit down podcast I get together for a rare conversation with John Cusak to talk about his new series Utopia and his long career of memorable roles and get our conversation now for free wherever you download your podcasts.

Since the Tolkien by music should we do they unnamed song recommendation segment I wound Gorman Glenn. more I recommendation is it so Roy Skies Oth- never heard of the song ban. Denied tied the exist. I promise you. This isn't just a name. Felt like S K V waters expelled spill out experience normally? Misconduct. Copy copy. Ju. It's just really kind of uplifting song which you kind of need right about now about going to be a roy and how things will you'll Royal Navy side for me that that's not listen to a lot lately I'll good yet la- was. A soak into the diagnosis nothing need to separate got a playlist on spotify of like all my favorite tunes. Usually stick on shuffle think two separate like the downbeat ones from the obeyed a couple of weeks ago. It was the day before you and Katie came over for bears and laugh, and I was having well cannot on Siemian down dancing much hair while I was working. Sometimes welcome from home is great and then in the middle of that brothers on a hotel bed boy death complicated on which. Most depressing songs. Productivity this. Holiday Colorado Scape. Banning something recommendation alone is a good song ongoing Redan, cinema bedroom but planet booty, which is on a symbol of until chosen because it's a good song to like put your troubles bedroom to which halted we recommend to anybody who's fading dancing is great. Even if she take subways by all very much for that all night I just thought again like we were talking about just buying about. That, it can just get on their loans equal everyone condense and have a good zalm absolutely I went onto their onto twitter earlier to see like how they would describe their music and their bio says that by our sticks body in dumps positive electro folk That's the thing. Yeah. Yeah I mean if it gives you any indication of how fantastic I do go on stage with I discovered bowl, bbut that I spin around with their own hands. It. I think they're they're they're pretty good bound for listening to when you fading a big down. I think it's impossible to be sad when listening to planet booty. So. That's my recommendation for also Madam Stall Him style. Think when we when we saw live I would just it I signed fulling Hasim in energy and it was hard to impossible to stay still it really was that whole Gig supported Ninja sex party you pay and it was Impossible to not have fun at that Geek let they could will be been technically sheets I think of still been like. When Phone. That's what the world needs. Now be a fun you know. Seriousness and and you know it's Li politics and elections in stuff. For the most part you won't. fucking kitchen. Don's Paul. What you just pack up your trouble was in your old kit bag. I am definitely GONNA I'm GonNa make what more dues, Michael, alike Stasi's Johnson you kitchen pilots styles for people have if I won't. Yeah I'll be good. Told you that you get into give a Paul playlist of will recommendations and all the tracks from what I haven't thought to do that throw. Now you've said each forget. Down evidence in. Brooklyn. Helicopter DIJK WHAT I'll do we watch tools again neither die. Wise World Never. Used to like that. Now. Still do I just you know when you felt you've definitely seen something too many times. You get to the point where you can quote every single line of a film. It's maybe occasionally issued arrest. Yeah that's how I felt about winds world. Now I hope which doesn't listen to these but. It's just one of those films like if it happens to be on, we're not doing anything which will always leave on like we could be watching the so many films I haven't see. Everybody knows this so many films I haven't seen. You know we could affair some percent something else. That was made a stop fucking lockdown. I've got like a watch list of thousands of Buckingham, films to watch and just spent Latin what she knows home Mahmud. Mysteries. That fits. No that just so easy. It was just like this is my brain mail into Jelly, but it's familiar jelly. I can say that buffet I am when I hit after the last Lloyd's podcast more brain fellow ver or went through a phase were just couldn't watch anything new because I just couldn't take eaten or enjoy relax or watched a lot of things and listen to a things that are comfortable. Walking, out that's you know that's one of the things about comfortability it's able to turn to I noticed from you'll letterbox the almost all of the soul films yesterday. I five of still got three more guy. I have to have to ask because from my experience of watching the soul movies over the period of about two and a half weeks last year, a feel peaks at the first one. So. Like how on earth did you seek through all of the? Boredom I'm not. The first one is the strongest one, and then once it kind of loses the original Roy as directors and it just becomes that franchise turning machine it loses a lot of it specialists that Kate China reedit and read. Word. Week, loan stuff into the time line. Right call. and then have stuff It's still enjoy the. Smell to that did that kind of talk to pull in? As as as I as a sub genre of horror films. that the traps a clever when they're ingenious, it's like you hate that what was the guy? Found elements of that knowing. But with the with the sole films excited is the Horovitz clever a good. But the characterization after the I will often fest to maybe A. politics but. I'm not going to riches lot at once you watch the first one you've got kind of watch him Oh yeah. A spice with is. It's been a lot of stuff we haven't seen before though recently subtly when we watched soul, it was because we haven't seen like all the other ones. So we Roy, we're GONNA watch them all in a row the source of one again, which got aside doesn't have a very good reward stopping she know the ending you still have realized just hey, fucking Hammadi carry allergies. Toy Ham tough steak now in the twitter the acting is amazing but. He's for the budget oversight that we've lived with him and we've Danny Glover an it's still must have been I e budget but. I think. There is the the. Factor and you've got a right things for how. A time but. Rocket my yoga plenty of times. Well a rich rich told me to tell you off actually because. He was like, okay telling him watch the DETROITERS, which is a comedy series from twenty seventeen. But instead he's watched Ted Lasso and all of the of I'm not gonNA tell him off because he's my friend will tell him the issued watch the Detroit is 'cause you should the last thing. I wanted to see while I rich was so a what's word pressing inside cy regret watching it will never watch another one isn't it? Yet we'll call. Sheet is it supposed to be full night a call? In. But isn't it is based on like a skit in an advil or promotion something. How it to a full series. But yet. Other I think there are times awesome. Watch TV shows specially chain in box sets of constantly, and then I'll have a couple of days off motion films side Detroit as up next on my list lodge I, think of something to finish first. The so movies. Options. More of the. Local to the point now, where I haven't got anything good left to watch arraigned Halloween because we fought like literally all of the scary films. When we watched the the. I'll go to date. Like? no had this molly's to review, and I don't know how to review this film because I think I already enjoy it because of what should eat with reaching K. who we gave A. Very heads over by the hall of. Because thinking back on the following die authentic Mexican watch it again because all I don't actually it was that good thinking logically not slack off Sinonov of articles that people innovate Harry it's like redefining the found footage genre. You know it's like quarantine movie for the Gauges and to me seems like other famed teach our walls to east better. The law people compare it to on friend did which can say well, because he's essentially the same story is like a zoom coal gone supernatural for I don't find do these terrible. But like you the second one's good. The second one is good, but it is not supernatural. Weitz good coach. All actually think he's more scary because it's real people doing things that could possibly be real solve if that makes sense. Salka see what people are comparing it to that sign that this is better because the ease a foot to me is like it's very much a film while average to soy is a scary thing is under the scary thing like it's not actually that tenants related. With you on that night I mean I'd I'd found footage post perspective films anyway. I. Just me out of it. Nice seeing you know the handmaiden over the top and this. Obviously during lockdown, we've we've seen a big rise of the zoom things that I haven't watched ended up the Zoe more near that kind of stuff. 'cause I just think it kind of for title radio like the day discolor pilgrims from. The how using Zoom Mazza toll to she enjoy it. For me I wasn't gonNA like coming into the film. Energy side, there were a couple of a couple of really good jumps, but the majority of it was just average. I think he did very well boy only limiting yourself to be fifty nine minutes or whatever it was visiting much longer on. Our would have been like Noah Casey. Civilian. And it's it's one of those things as well. Like only know the are should be suspended my disbelief about people carrying laptops everywhere in documents like I should be thinking to myself. Don't let that. Bother you because this is the premise of. The thing of the fell by half to do this otherwise, you don't see the bitchy need to say. Nothing I think we live in a Diana people have mobile phones that you can use skype instaphone a get more painful. Do that why? Because it's much believable to made it somebody would run with a phone that would think to pick up their laptop off the desk run with it. And have pointing at their FEIS still being toyoto him will be annoyed me and I think I think he. It did that thing that I don't like these movies do with cheese also too scary when you couldn't really say what was going on in a Chan moved and you can tell wall. Like you could say something in the background, but you weren't sure what it wants. So it really annoyed me when I had a couple of weeks that very clear shots very bad. Demon people there was one in particular where there was going on fire and sort of drops his camera pans across in this just like we blew steak And I'll come on this is tantamount to one of those videos where like it only go and do like Oh got God somebody's spotted a ghost in the background of Doma. So you won't really close to screen and then all of a sudden like an image of the Kate from the Ecstasy's POPs up You Chic. On. One of these videos that surprised you were expecting the jump allow obviously the jumps cited that vigorous did have an impact on constantly in volume. The only one that also was tense was the very end weather taking photographs loss of the room and say, no at some point they're going to take a photograph is going to happen but. It took a while to get this you are referring to like high. Do you think the enjoyment for me, which will we? Just watching virtually Cambridge. Just, grabbing pillows crowing. Don's watching on your the house, but I've not affect site is watching it with a few people. But then again in a cinema would really work on. ESPN those films, I. Think what best when you're watching them like on a computer on your teller because again I think can save it because we watched all remember what it's called, but it's got an apartment, the almo code. It was seen. Muradov shift. He was seen Star Trek as the guy who I will like Ooh with might one of them guy actually you already seem the dude. Got Until the New Star Trek below. The item. Song. But. Anyway it was. It will come to a mini and that was a film where his daughter goes missing and hey, starts like investigate in. That is all set on a computer as well and I feel like if you that a cinema, it'd be ridiculous like imagine somebody like doing a Google search for stock image of a bird like on a fucking. Only Max? Screen I think he was cold set. Out the John John Yes John annoy me so much. Yeah. Go he was in Star Trek yet will. So briefly in it, that's why it was annoying that he will make him the guy one because we don't ever rafted Joe. Psych. Yeah. No that was another one of those movies city was like it was good. He's very good. He's always good book the conservative victory in all on the computer you have to suspend disbelief about that wants us to believe as many people face time as doing these movies on never fights time because a high price and a height, the phone I'm like if you need to get into it, you may submit Don't even phone me Sir Anita announced the Roy be second coined of situation. Just want to win sometimes see store for men I'm like, hello thinking some terrible emergency she's like, Roy, lexi wanted to say, hi, I'm no cool. I'm in the bathroom. I-IT's films quickly enough to cyber use it is. When someone gets text message instead of look at next, say the bubble come up on the screen. It's like in I in ten years fifteen years a pig Latin. ridiculous. Yeah. The the thing that got me is all about host to like if felt to me lot trying to fool seat to be a quarantine film thought my sense those like. To the goals metal and despite the fact that they were in the middle of like a terrified, you know Damon nightmare where the friends were already dead on still stopped put a mask on and then like. Do the show with your Alpo saying and I'm like you don't need that in these Phil lake either you've already mentioned that you're in quarantine or whatever. So it doesn't really Ma. Song again at that was his attempt to my ready cultural, culturally relevant but. In time. People will forget. The thing was even a thing well, during that because which was saying that he thinks people will never shy cancel really close friends family and also I sign that because on the hook. If we want anything. We will give a couple of days elbows of we. It is big concern. Anyway. Brief thing about this the thing that's distress me most about the elbow thing is the throughout the star of the corona boy was thinking that we're trying to tell you to cough and sneeze into your elbow and because it was like you know then you get, you jumps all over anything hands 'cause you coughed into your Hanzel ever, which is like a get where you're coming from. But now just got like a disease that will bow and enabled me to rub that on papal. Go you do anyway? Lots of people have claims By some people maybe have. Might, be. Host I could recommend it to people and missile we're going to watch it will with Cambridge. On The ninety minutes isn't it's something to watch. It will do at the moment. Certainly did because I have same share of very sheet films. Of the past couple of weeks, we watched the clock and absolutely wish onto your review on metro box before we watched it because then I wouldn't watch. We'll, of course you can do. It. Of Yeah. It's one of those films. Will I like person? They don't really know enough about is he says, he has any offerings area I. Don't know enough about those things to know whether or not portrayals our offensive or not book it definitely feels today Lake Pay Sensitivity instead shoot. Off Look. Good impulsive just like. Anyone else is must be like a WHO, WANNA pub up. alley. And so boring for Thrilla. Mode mystery that when nothing happens. Wasn't fully NATTO. Now filled you WanNa talk about stuff the saying because off just been waffling. power a law watch that too. So that the new netflix one wave Jamie Fox in Jersey Gordon Levitt added. alita nod. So it's it's something that's been done a lot since superhero genre took off in film. It's the idea of buying powers and tablets sold drugs whatever that you the Palette essentially. Pam and it's about a will show. It is a police officer, a girl that's selling these power drugs to make money to support a family and she's a young girl from a ghetto, and then as Jamie, Fox who's a mysterious character who's looking for the source of these drugs. And it's something before we. Push. Accommodate something come up a lot in the last couple of years. So in that respect, the plot was a bit average in whatever but I thought the the special effects for the power is really good hoppy amend the acting of those three nine. was sold throughout cy that Stephanie, some Netflix's enjoyed that mold and Roy and extraction ones. Again, I can't say like people talking about in years to come and die getting a franchise was left equal. with Netflix's money doing netflix plenty does wouldn't be surprised if there is one but. It Almost entirely forgotten which I think. Tells you. Felt they it was. It was one of those films rich put on. A faulty relay in any way in the school was good performances side effects good in the stores be predictable, but it's fine but when finished. What Okay I did call cross stitch almost duty to. Go on the coal person who's cross-stitching Jigsaw in at the same time boss M multitasking. Although the cross stitch have to take a back seat now because the jigsaw tights mile desks by more time sensitive. I didn't mind. I didn't mind it but I don't think like it's not something I would rush to recommend people if that makes sense not. Look. Of A sign of Lobster, I was just GonNa get my letterbox Lee stay show watched 'cause the problem the problem of having the moment, and if people want to fling some recommendations, mowatt right is that Ma'am which will pretty much watch whatever falls into our lack Salah. Like, you know we just sit in there and something has appeared the top of the net flicks you least style do. Project, parenting styles. So. I would. Never Watch again. Then you wouldn't recommend to someone but you don't regret your time thing. Yeah. Will site up this yet been sheet movies that are almost forgotten that watched meets. Watched film cold only at Donahue nine or her debate will it was another one that was like just to pay it on? Netflix people were given fairly average view sooner Orion and it's essentially the basic premise of it is that this way comic thing kills women. Only. God and. This particular couple who they're trying to keep the woman site. Because she has been exposed to ask yet but obviously, you know the government pain like bounty hunters to die and bringing women to help oversee procreation Safaga. Any so dole like it's the. It's one of the most boring films you could possibly Roy obey to commit the drops of voyeuristic kills women like. Gotten F. as in one thing, you could do that. What did was made a boring Lloyd thing debate the relationship between this girl and her partner. For God's sake, fucking get off. Call nor condemn all. When we're watching asset to rejoice coral and he was like doubt now what you'll talk debate. out we watched action point was also shake. But it was what you expected for noxious. Wilson Now. Expecting more. Sense that makes sense. All of our people were really made me laugh but it wasn't enough of it to be honest. I'm trying to find a film that we mortar be good. The is fairly recent. You know because I have at least avoid old things that paper gasping at me for not having watched watched So we watched misery last night took people. Anthem is really good film but who by Bay is not a? Heavy. Over there. Yeah. Oh. Yeah. I was coming well. Of Seen Hobbling Sane before Roy from top-ten grossest place in movies although of things. So I knew that was coming but that is the only film of ever seen before and. That Kathy Bates is characters like a not from the off. So it was actually really interested me to say that at the start she nurses helping money was in a car accident a blizzard. A bit of fun girl. It's interesting to see that as well. Now from the perspective of what Fund Dems have become nowadays. y'All really photos a really good film and also saw the lost boys whichever mom threatened to disown me over if it didn't. So quote happy to report that I thought it was pretty good. It's one of those films the lost boys I think would've liked him more effective seen it when I was younger? Closer to the time when it came on, remember muscles Detroit to introduce her husband Greg to labyrinth, and he'd never seen before, and of course, may sixties to watch all the fucking time So we were like dancing the magic dancer in the living room and gruesome almost saying, well, we'll must see if. Owner style defending a thing about we've lost boys united been arguably better draft vampire films sings but obviously everyone guys back to that that moment that I saw as a Trusted to say what you think he's a better vampire movie because I don't know that I've watched that many films as one of the areas of our the I haven't really gone down concisely. Sigh off saying the Gary Oldman Dracula too many times because it was one of them was fiber films and thirty days of noise What we do in the shadows is. The eight count that? Quite count by lizzo vampire story but. Sitting. Interview. Yesterday half adult remember though I just remember I into incident infuse Teini. That's over member of. On the on the tangent of misery you aside. For now, you saying that it's worth saying already the French in cylinders version. Very, very good misery French. In sewn does want to show. That waiting to suck. No we were talking. Like comet east of the day to assign hey, calm. Quite won't moist oil of comedies because there are things that I don't. Think I would i. she doesn't dot start a few months but then I'll like something else very similar but Li-. Sadly, enough one of the things that grew upon a lot with Harry Enfield on friends still find law of that. Even though I, know it's not cold side. Subjective in an end probably say specially something that reminds you of someone or you can relate to. Is with me with comedy is what other things where all pretty much laugher anything as long as it does feel like it's punching down not all get your not. Yeah. Yeah. 'CAUSE WE WATCH STEMMED JIM JEFFERIES CCC's new gloat. NETFLIXING special or whatever it is for every other know if somebody streaming services And there was like a whole baked fat people I don't like what are you? Doing Jim Jefferies What do you end this whole bit having ago at millennials in it feels very man yells at cloud loic Bloomberg of funding Jeffries incredibly. we've seen him live a lot of towns and. Coffee. He's like good control does the reins of. Timeline tonette he's berry fanie. These help. It just felt like he was punchy y Damon and it might be uncomfortable sauce. It's not funny to me to laugh at people already down. Tussin they look all that more people make you fat jokes if they're funny. But when you just pointed out gross not well, if family comes the backbone need material in yeah, athlete doing what? He did gets like what was the on Twitter Dan Lot with Zion about spider man and it's like People shouldn't be making jokes where spider man coups the kingpin fat and stuff all that and people were. Usually in an He does it. It's. It's not he does. Because he's the villain onto thing and and slightly saying what there are other things. He can side still peopole quip, but you shouldn't be focusing on X. Y. and Z. In this. Day. Night. It's like one of the things that really rawls meal on involved political for a moment, but it won't last very long when people get. Cross. Donald. Trump Mike. I WanNa bite what a fat messy is over. I of is not that fat but secondly, being fast isn't inherently bad stopped Mike Outlook, because he's a Shita that case too tight the Now, like paypal's sullies in shape a lot of time is not actually that controllable boy am especially things like you know holy So like I just think just think ragging on people's appearances at all advice just by flexible. I mainly why their assignment. More clever wise might paypal off now is you don't need to resort those tropes and drive Let's point standpoint Yeah I think as well as the other toy. Look adult model site. For example, we thought fat jokes auto really mind fat jokes when people make themselves either because that picking on themselves peaking on either. I mean this is hope in Login jefferies be really made me laugh where he was talking about easily bs and not made me laugh because he was taking the peace of himself she turned himself. And also relate to it because Oh, boy of been there. Is Not fun. Satellite comedies on one for me because I'm not one of doubt think that than stoic enough stuff that you shouldn't joke about I think anything's fair game as long as seats as long as the joke is actually funny and not just an insult disguised as a joke. Knock knock knock on at the heavy go here from misery. Oh Phil. Have you seen she'd always tomorrow I have not Toro Bulls. I was really hoping you to watch this because really want other people's opinions. She does tomorrow is a film who gets interrupted that she's GonNa always tomorrow, and then she tells a frightened and then her friend gets tomorrow and then it spreads between our friends in everyone that she tells unlike doctor stuff. Follows in that respect. So Tov. Yes. It's like a sort of mental voyages often are the best way to describe it. Only felt like movie was going to be primed for me to enjoy because on the paranoid person. Away have anxiety and the film is very much a two, hundred percent Beta bull. None of the characters empathetical dumping tools. You don't. You don't actually find yourself caring whether or not tomorrow. I don't top of that. There's also the fact that it doesn't really sign anything like I. Don't think every every film has to have lockers. Underlying superclub message or yet but I feel it when you're doing a film that's very clearly about mental illness you probably do need to say something it doesn't have to be useful or you've been you know happy like he could make the point the notices she and like the people have to live with it but this film doesn't do any of that. But what it does do is a lot of stolley stick fancy cinematography stuff too many think signed things are important. It didn't often no. But It's one of those films I'll be looking at the reviews and literally save me now scrap does. It doesn't doesn't say anything looks per se but it doesn't say anything do anything. It's not interesting. Oh a paper like rich giving it five stars and going this might be the most reliable content to the and it's The Best of forever and I'm like hold on here to. Keep getting in. where, on like at the opposite end of the papacy. I'm just stay Piedmont just missing the point of old movies. Well. That that's all it isn't it is what it comes down. Zeevi. Yeah. It'd be interesting to know what? So the intention behind the filming general morning because it feels like we've what's given what's going on in the world at large that movie abate Ceuta Vodka despite. The spread of the Thule tour virus store whatever would but now it didn't feel like it walls. Is Your I'd be intrigued to see what you think warn what list yeah. It's definitely for me it was a style over substance top situation. youtubecom to jam so. You'll come back to you below five stars baked six. What are your thoughts as well? You can use. Two and a half because I couldn't decide whether or not. They style was good enough to make up for the lack of substance not. So just went which Roy day in the middle because show. Which is actually what did the lighthouse world was like? KOUSSA absolute trash. Off on what? Auburn regret what can a two and a half feel. No think that's. I mean given the number of like. On, stop trash bags, we've watched Yom -NIFICANT GONNA a two and a half. Asleep album alleged was just before the Detroit is just piss ritual. What no prologue because he loved the film didn't Beloit fell watching and I'll be light. All films not is not enough to. Unveil like it. Did you watch horse skull when that kind? Of. New to hide it. I'll. Say often the let this has the same. The same feeling for me is that where it was like felt like I was gonna like it because it's relatable mental health stuff that I can definitely empathize with and then it just didn't. Sigh. Do anything that might since to me in that context often year that was very much stone substance. Again that's why I enjoy enjoyed it not because it was awesome break. Off. She knows to look at. Pretend. Not Pretend that any of us give an extra saw analysis breaks all woods takes beautiful and very talented but I think we've girl wouldn't want expecting it to be but I'm not expecting him but it certainly wasn't Again maybe not solve it. Did you see what's the race? It will matter in a the rental, the rental. Such That's more date. It's it's weird. It's a movie of two halls. The first half is like I'm just a mumble relationship taught move in the other half is like, oh, it's a home invasion. pre-stage may not you know a guy was quite surprised also. 'cause from the trade as just very generic to me. is covering the benefit in having a good cast also in the. Films just nothing happens three. Unlike other as much as I was saying that films dot have to have messages points a do like it when they at least have an awesome thing that makes it feels like you've gone from point A. to point bay rather than just if just watch to connection if things that happened. Like. I think the thing for me with mumble coast offices too much like my own life and that's not gonNa want from films like I WanNa Watch film when i WanNa see something that could happen to me all roughing Jeremy I mean my couldn't watch them over the time. But every now, and again, it's nice. Just something just I'm followed and think, Oh, I get that are been that could happen to me. But then, but then again, I don't tend to documentaries. So it's good to very tight. We watched a documentary of the Diet by Rubik's cube. Competition. People invited. About APPS. Such she quite interesting. I S- Townley these people they're just memorize these moves in just about even looking and just knowing what to do. Honestly. All I find I talk just got like the world's Limp East recent and. But I find it really hard to move a Rubik's cube with both of my. Watching. Do just like one hundred selected do finished always like hold on that's not. On can handle it all rich rich much more interested in the competition to just let them go. The hand movements can be trying to do on van that would eventually come but. Just The HATTON's nigger on now. more problem with a lot of games is the forget the rules very easily. That's why games that we have where the instructions basically on the costs look. Like it tells you peak peak three calls of oral. On. in that white okay. I have many. Dear arbitrary. With is like we will thing we've like swipe getting into like united. Games, and Dungeons and dragons, and RPG's and that kind of stuff and it's probably kind of a metaphor, my life shit with money. But very rarely think like three, four, five steps ahead I think of step one one doing right now, and maybe you know maybe usually step two step three or in my mind. But these people that know what they're gonNA do in sixteen moves times and fuck in Alpha lights them she know what gets me a? Day. As well, and this is going to sell. It must protect your thing. Anyone's ever said, but it's the Improv all doubt like the pressure of having to think to know that there are only so many moves occupy cannot just choose whichever WanNa do and it mile minute work. Whereas like there's like endless possibilities day in day. company CABELA's outdoor pay what's going to work the best Will I haven't gone strategic Brian. Hundreds and.

What if you'RE GONNA cheat on Like all God's stop accused the nature of the retreat in. The. Whole Toy at paper. So stupid you can't do that movie actually candidates in the rules. No, you can't hold on. Let me get the book on. God. Just. Make you move flats. Families. You. GotTa choose you board game players Cathy I think and it's GonNa be nice mix of people who aren't GonNa kill late to the refer Anatomy of alcohol. Yes. Definitely. Although then like have noticed that when people get drunk you more likely to just let the guy moping totally just knocking everything over or whatever. This isn't board games monthly. Am Fill that soloist wrote down because surprisingly enough nearly everything watch been terrible. did you watch American pickle yet date? What did you think thought? It was falling throw a lot I think he's a talented dude and I saw the tin against himself was actually pretty good. One of the better. So of loyd doubled double factor type situations of saying but what it was full. Full expected I fully expected to be a full on combination gone expecting lot fucking Borat or whatever. To didn't commit to that, but it didn't quite commit to being. Nice. Having a mixed agen getting a resolution. I think yeah. It was really hot one like the January might be but there was nothing that was properly fool funding unlucky citing yet didn't really commit to meaningful plotted the. again, it's another one that I don't think outside people like don't what? There were a couple of noise satirical treatments at times especially with regards social media in the deep, the hipster But again, it was a tool vissel not impactful enough. It felt like a bit of a wasted of achievement people don't talk really know what else I expected Offi. Different met we won't pickles Exceeded in now in not saying. Dude. Program and also Seth Rogan of Seth. Rogan with these full will be a D- was looking pretty splendid costs I although he didn't do his patented laugh which one of the things off on the most adorable am so. Swings in mind by sending hundred any. Cottam toilet I'm. Just racking my brain trying to think of things that we might have watched the the do you have any? Things that you would talk Phil coming whilst would. Come out this year or did you watch that? Other people have talked about the. Moran One to go build ago. Yes. KIDS HAVE TO BUILD A. Terrible. God I'm so glad you said that a high to deal with with a fiery passion because. For. Movie Abate Music it doesn't seem like anybody production office actually likes music. It was so like the same track like standard choices of like what people think good music as the makes like full. So Just get to buggery with that. Remorse, and away take-off heard such an unconvincing accent in life look. A seventies conversation with richly the die about accents and I was signing that like never understood why 'cause then must be actors we those natural actions of never understood why would settle for bad There actors could do accents look flicking you know David tennant. Like am you know there are people who do very accent walk but then there were people like don't change all in Ocean's eleven. Be Bernie baby felt stating this movie just shifting all over like it's not even consistent. That see the thing is not it's not a bad accent. It's the same all the way through its different levels of back. Like I just don't get just some who can do or ease from Wolverhampton like. Yeah. even the accident aside, it was just like no single person was likable Wayne any any means? Spies with the the industry might the off the point that they will in misogynistic counts and the I chased to become one kind of thing. But just not even the resolution and just all of them not redeeming thing about a single one of them. The thing that really bothers me as well a is a really big. Big. Point. Might that never gets brought back up a Ho- promiscuous. She gets points supposed to be what fifteen sixteen. And as like twenty four, twenty, six year old dudes going to take it on an equal explicit is never any sort of Loyd regret on her behalf or anything like that hundred distinct of real. Message to be sending as well. You know I may be by because of all semi auto biography graphical whatever but just it just didn't work for Onscreen as a film it just that the journey was just pointless. and. The office well didn't fail rail like may enrich was saying as we watched the if look. At the start of the film, Mosul, character because like all was the of school, he preferred to read a book and you know didn't really have any friends and people to learn bubble barnacle maybe this is going to be relatable spice contents. And then she put some of the towpath. everybody lives on what almost you've gone to school in a topic that you've told me a new fuck ass. Inkling one when Everybody loves because she's got this new top hat personality and I'm like, Oh, my God the first time or went to school won't address dame diet a pair of like wide leg jeans with a Houdini on people worked. The she taped may there's no way for the rocked up at school in a fucking top? Wouldn't have got verbally murders. The. Didn't give a shit. Like it just all of it was just an a family role full and like a Minnesota for birth. really sorry for him when he sort of comes to and she doesn't give a shit. What's big Now he's just a dreadful movie dreadful people doing boring things agreed absolutely great huts bad. It's really by to nine as well because unlike her. Because when rich said you WANNA watch this. So I didn't know anything baby and also from book small will give you will. Mistake roofing. WAS IT book small? The wrong people saw the the the energy and the coyotes that she had not just still. Yeah. It's interesting that she was quote believable as being court young post when I'm pretty sure she's like she's not far of my I think in reality that I'm trying to cast this vote the nod I boy. Oh God she's she's why younger the May. Shit Nelson Old. will go to the ninety S. Remember them. Nice. Not at all to be honest There's. Not Been Lot going on at the moment because. The show that we normally what flashing suffer on high s because of the world you'd. Think we watched sold from the detroiters which we absolutely twenty episodes anyway. So that was. One of the bonuses to accidents not we had thousand episodes to catch up on. From appreciable I'm sure which listen to this can be Lloyd do you not pay attention to anything Redo we've been watching. Venues on. Did you did you finish up go? Did you? Oh yes, we date yet. Help feel but still go. I think when he's good, he's very good when he's not it's total Golfie. What is things where it was? You know I'm the the audience, but it wasn't like as unappealing Si- revile revile just like this is no for you feel even attempt to press play where stalled like this is not for you feel but you WanNa throw a brick will. Yeah we we got through one episode reviewed Iowa both. Again. Yeah it was bad. Now we saw go I am are really not the superhero bits and I don't want the school bits and I think that's That's where the talk Mris makers like in terms of comic read in. Superhero stuff I am very much in that target demographic for almost thirty four. So. I. Don mean like English schools is while a very different from. American ones. Solid don't even half like a frame of reference really for what look any of that already even care. But I think a lot of superheroes to WHO's very good light. The first episode when he opened up from like the original justice asylum due to my easing things just like Oh why? Koi the fact that it didn't cross over with everything as well. 'cause like as much dislike on while I'm an attorney for do even enjoy the freshman just. Just walked That's the only one watching now. But like because I'm still watching that one whenever there's a crossover have to watch those crossover sites and I don't even think are. Now. Living. We've we've stalled cited the justice assault ABC's good. Not Not to Sean in Noy natsume stopped but again, the families office like, yeah. All over their sites like but again, I can't complain. Year girl. So it's like these the people who going this stuff. Or do you think mark is one of the best characters you sign that bit family like a love mark because he's always just thinking about food. He's a man after my own heart is he's just. Come. Out of all. The kids with the goals that is not the annoys the fuck out may like. I can see why they've done that. Yeah it's one of those things with that. To difficulty with the series that they've literally started with nothing in terms of people having palace while like everybody in show is getting powers from things rather than having the marijn lay. So like they've got to be really careful with that goal with the goggles because the goals only power our needs to have in small doses essentially. So she she's carry to them to manage I. Think because I call every, put her in situations where she might get hurt because she would absolutely toy. She. Murdered like she's got nothing going further as couples. But. The regret lock. Like, Love Your Review Today of ended with all the dog. Regret what she did. Josey think what else is running everything rolling. have you watched a corporate used alternate? Yes. Yes. We are still very good. Very, very good. Lending as good as the last couple. Seasons, but it's still very very dry and then you'll get that bit. It's like the the one where he was thinking about killing himself a whole episode almost brilliant. It's it's it's it's good TV, but it's hard to walk. Yeah especially when you think all recognize they still. Like that the definitely turn up we just WANNA bay a a sitcom. WE DON'T WANT TO BE A. Way Sunny or a well golics thing definitely in that satire on that that level of comedy in the time. So yeah really enjoying gopro May to washed like every fucking community in every new go every everything. I'll be fair. We finished our reward to Scrub A. Weeks ago, and it turns out that I'd not seen an awful lot of groups got surprises me. I think the thing with scopes was that I didn't really stall paying attention to it until rich, which was well after it established itself thought might since. So it's never been that automatically watched any for did it would just be because it was like on comedy central while I was flicking channels and nothing else was on this. The same thing do with friends where it's like of coffee. Now before I'm doing something and frenzies on all two. and Muda background noise while you. Change the channel when like. It will take more time to find something to watch them just to actually watch an episode of violence. A derailed like scripts offend deny identity dismay appoint Judean law creepy a driver remembering being before on I don't know whether that's because lot might be some of the jokes more dieted narrow all matt areas because my opinion of some breath himself is a little bit different. It's hard to to watched off in fresh vacuum isn't always The. United, people around in the actual actors it's lot with friends. Yeah. Friends is is very programmatic a new people spikes to the Arrow actually complete assholes but. It's still funny. I. Always try my boy frightens is from like now I'm too cool to watch friends, but frenzies can be really funny. It's a two way. It show the 'cause like in a man Wichita convey the that he indeed like fucking ten years ago might be. Any still on regular look paypal discovering heroic. He would like our age at the time but discovering it now wear look at the Chevy like all ease. For Your you'll be getting people that were even boom when it ended it. Like. Binning complete syndication I can guarantee that it's been on between evil comedy central in probably has been on everyday since ended netflix's now echo sees at the FBI people again, all done however cannot lie. Kamensko. easiest. Who was that not done? Oh, sorry. Always just Also saved did like you've likes slap something and I was like. What's happening in fills very holzinger who I'm looking. boob sweat on working a lot on sweat up dummy. Video jetted out. Yeah. Yeah. Do you think sign you know Sam? We've got the CHROMEBOOK may reach realized after talking episode with somebody where they were cranny Luxembourg where oil was able to see him. But he can say he was called you could've deceased the chromebook. Am I did think about suggested today but I knew almost GONNA get. On a half got like two giant sweat So you know it's not it's a sexy bill in stable. Obviously, the episodes. After that up dial moti sweat got. They WanNa talk about from the. Outside office, we've covered vices any concert I have read any comic books or anything elaborate some comex good loads. You. Normally some. Of of catching. Up on Middle West is so. IT-IT's Scott. Young story about a boy who's sort of like anger based windy. The best way to describe it who sort of trying to find himself slash run away from his dad who can't control his anger corny thing and some. So fantastical hero quest talk thing. Let's bigot and all of Scott Young anyways to be wonderful. And of being catching on monitors which. Think about fourteen is using nominal still don't know if. Chelsea kind. Needed, can all women that turn into like panthers on by periods? I don't know I don't know what it's going for. So I don't know if it's good. To remember right even about. Remember Rich Raven about one Christmas up. Yeah. He M he put in his folly Christmas before last 'cause we. Not Read Comics for. A, yeah he he. Yourself may only end. A Talk I think to me, it feels is A fine Loy Affleck is trying to be feminist and buy some our no of Chelsea Kane and everything the probably is but Comes actually being coined of like all but we all just mental when they're on their periods online. No filming. Good. No. Illusions woman's I will, yeah may not suppose there is that inside and also To Finnair, abate her men react to the news that. Against Women and stuff which I get that sort of messaging. But there's a lot of stuff in that I just think he's just to know I just don't know what it's doing. So haven't decided from fully on board with the a Guy Punky Diem fools I'm sorry Phil. Thought Roy but. Now that I remember you. I really enjoyed it. Yeah. I'll go to a point where I haven't read any issues for Brian was not. Want to try to get back into just find date. Just it was just like a now look I couldn't understand what was happening in couldn't remember what happened previous anymore. So just Kinda Palma. That's been option Batavia. Hasn't it I believe. So yeah, which I'll probably watch because I was really enjoying it when I was reading it regular neighbor that little break in it because it's very sort of its chronological in it's very sort of haram and fantastical and stuff. There's a lot of happens you need that doesn't make a whole lot sense and there's a lot of stuff that happens that you're not Schori's even real. Having. That breaking it just might mean totally forget what was. A. Think it is the kind of thing raids. Barron. Trades and like I'm not reading. Because I haven't got back into the swing of it off the whole, the nothing being published nothing. Quite frequently up until Mall Shannon I've read anything since then and stuff started to come back into production but a remember what the Fuck Las Red. Sale. been playing catch up because all I took a really big break from comex token like a six month break from reading things just because just as Brian just couldn't really contemplate. Like against refined easy sometimes are on all about comics and then I'll just stop for bait and I do the same with podcast I'll be I'll go through fees were like six podcast to die, and then soon they'll be like I don't listen to anything. I did. It's just let my brain can reduce something else. So I'm just took getting back into things they lock finishing farmhand, which is really good. Are got a COP member nine is the goalie. Did you ever chew The the broad or? Think he was the I think he's the autism Yes, yes. His book, which is a guy who comes up with a seed that can really grow like limbs transplant organs for transplant stiffen all sorts going to be a raleigh. As as he does, you know in. Comic. But that's really good. He's also when defoe and it's it's like it's like a combination of Loyd comedy and science fiction and a low body Kara. It's It's a really good really good book and we'll also put him rating. which fall inducted catching up on which finder as well. Which is one of the hell boy universe at A. Comic would cry back in Victorian. TIMES, investigative in. Things like Jack The ripper. Detailed University Is That who stop by I doubt now. Note of. Non Citizen. He's been doing like the old story here in. The one off because helping technically ended the still held boy comics community a lot plugging the gap cities he's stray. So that's been I think it was like hell boy nineteen, forty four evens to Florida. or like a random Christmas special that he's being opinion on. But most of the more ongoing stuff has been the people but he's like beep beep universities allows ones I feel. They've just managed some hair to get the perfect paperwork in on it because everybody seems to really get work. The Universe is never sometimes the stories themselves out for me, but it's never been badly written. It's never been badly drawn. There's always been like a way things are going. Really touched over. Thirty it. To the debate day is probably my favorite universe of Comex. Swath Hilversum sucked. High so much stop putting me over in things. She's not goot. What a horrible thing to decide. What. She's on the she wasn't getting help anyway anyone. Two eight to be honest. I think that film was just doomed from the script tools 'cause like when stem alcott to keep forgetting everybody's fucking nine. From strange things. got. Even. Stranger things yet. That Sandra when team is hell below the. That could actually work because this is all I think from Poland was amazing. Think of the Roy H to do it now unless you do in like a grizzled hell boy. Something's happening in the prison kind of thing. So with all actually he he could be good success this role and I do think that beats where he was good. But the stuffy how to vote with in that film which just Decide. Today was just. A really bad representation of the comment. It really wants nothing really may film was that was a big at the end and I'm going to spoil it because it's it's old enough neither dot filled by debate doing that. At the end where all these monsters start community. The US which is actually reference to a really big storyline that was going on in bpl day at the time and I think it not long finished as the movie came Eh, any just A. Subtraction. And I was just like I might like in the comics. This was like holy Shit squeaky Tallinn's whereas also, this looks like shit and also nobody seems to Kayla that just day. Like. Politically. Inferior Info before interested in. So how is in a black widow if that eventually ever comes out? If a win will to. Be. Torn. On him to build because I really liked team in a couple of seasons of strange thing Heitmann the laughs as authors crap and I'm annoyed by beginning to bring him back for the next season. COPPEDGE. Participates in series four everyday. If I all my keeps writing the next season them, I'll quit. Week one of the one of the actors get get too big. Panetta. ow surely say. That was going to be the case that's going to be finished. Man 'cause he's goes posters whenever that comes. Yeah. Film has a mini Bobby Brown, a new series coming out soon again on Netflix and. Chill comes she's the female. Should try to for that may delay. For helping to you. This is yeah. I. Think I think the problem for me is that if things like catch immediately I'm Doug. With the volume of stuff that's out there Zan faranoff in it. It's funny though because you would think wallace got more time to. Put. My attention on things. That are more interested in seeking things. I have now. Not The case. We've got what? Out next week. Then Neiman's finally out in the wake off the yeah Can categorically cy I'm not going to the cinema to see those things. As much as I would absolutely knows to say ten on the big screen because he's undoubtably GonNa be probably amazing. If not ploys in video barefoot in treating bazaar though the critics of come out and just said, it's if bang average really. Yeah. Yeah. So. Identifies just the Craig's Spain circumstance because it was to be site you've seen him or no visconti off with them react into it but not. Fighting in. Yeah, I feel Greg's generally. Just interesting just to say it's not quite backlash but I think he's got more to do with the circumstance in the actual film itself. Yeah. When the vote will affect like a lot of people's enjoyment of things 'cause I think muscle a lot of films in putting themselves off rather than sticking themselves on night because they. Tend to be fearful of the reaction that people have seen it for the first time like on a normal la or computer screen or phone. This is definitely the malls films being white into saying what it does and the problem is obviously it's films designed to be say you end up seeing Max. I just don't trust cinemas. He asked. Get off on a went to the pope for the first time last night like it's the first time of being any way that's in those seats, the lockdown that's not the co-op. The co-op twice. So yeah, and it was a weird. It was a way experience like the whole time as much as I had a lot of with friends like the whole toy on also anytime anybody came name mimic. What are you going? It's a it's. Zorro still. Even with too many people. But. beaten Torius not being particularly clean like ever. So that's the other thing that bulbs may cause like assigned to reach Lake Pope's mind so much because you can. You can visually see them cleaning tables in between sify, but lawyer thrown it's quite boys choir. For, me it's public transport in cinemas unlike having to get on a boast the unknown. I don't clean in between passengers because, hey, the could die. And then get into a cinema. That's like you know yes, can moxham sakes has not been seen on one of our, but not means everybody using this university scientists Socially, all of the jobs just got to be around those. But maybe I'm just superpower annoyed doubt. The signed by it'd be into New Zealand a couple of weeks pays. there are actually released in it because the last auto and it was only a couple of weeks ago on twitter I was always been delayed indefinitely, and then I saw the local conclude tenant August twenty third order of the focus. Oh less interesting. It must be ready for trying to run a business Yeah. Yes I'll talk about. Fight evolution to any new music she phil 'cause you'll by the Nile. Let's. Would listen to the Taylor swift album only. Subsequently. Yeah, it's falling. A lot allow people like raving about. Joan recreating genre defining and she's doing away doing. But for me to go I admit I can be wrong. Definitely one of the best albums of the year in recent years and certainly fall fallback than I lost too. But it's nothing special when that. A the the realm of of history and whatnot I. Still Think Barrow Yeah I think it depends majoring. You see because this album, the thing of Kaufman bought the actual albums coal for glow folklore they knew something musical the thing the affordability is it's very sign man it's very long there's lots of songs only. slyke seventeen songs even people in my and they're all of the same ilk a- fail this Sunday at one. So can really not the one we Bonnie there. But the mood of a police focused it's very basic very theory it's very beat it's not whereas like at the moment that's not really what I'm looking for music's all would roll the put on shake off and rain the kitchen knock addicted. Argue. But to do not the album but I thought it was really interesting because when he came I was saying a lot of people signed the ashes, this generation's Joni Mitchell where to begin. Isn't that. Like no I think is and look I think he's absolutely falling but I don't know I think it might just be more mindset. To commit last year. These Tom Nasty. When none of this was happening? Might be more into a slightly more danby like sort of beautiful album. But at the moment is not really much am up in more listen to Jesse ways album. Yup. The perfect dance around your kitchen album. Absolute Good just disco gem sash elevate. That will definitely feature on the two pilots SOM- now apparently. Just for the PGA Yeah I. Think That's more women the moines spice for the moment. So as much as I do think that a lot of the tracks on the tightest without mall genuinely blaylock side the bunny very one is a student song, but it's not the corner. Song. WanNa just put in hair right now Planet. Today on the other hand. Nicole plenty bootees default. You can't. No. Smile. kids at midnight had to come. It's a Australian female artist. Very, it's pope looked good stuff not lively. Oh, one thing I listen to it didn't expect to the new album by the chicks along formerly the dixie chicks. The. A phone, the cheeks a terrible time for a band I'm sorry like it doesn't work. That album surprise me that I stone how it I ended up listening to again, it must have been minutes play for just push my way a enjoy one now he's about. A tick well at the moment I'm just pricing must release much new stuff because often on the podcast. and. Then when I tend to music on wanted dancer indication, sing along which can't do things I don't know. Yeah. Yeah. Yet bodied. Obviously goggles lightest and it's very good. It's very good. If it's not very good if you don't because it's much of muchness. Listen to. It. Once for Call members about rail Sunday trucks on there for me but year it said. I think the people of selling it's like member on efforts on but she's one of those overweight relationship without beyond signed a lawyer an awful lot of singles album tracks tyco lady for the tall. So a lot of there's a lot of loyd standout tracks to me this half of the album banging the office like a forgotten and as a truck without John that onto student like their voices do not go scan it's weird because she's GonNa amazing voice and he's got a great voice do not go together to. It's like tolkien chasing. on the beauty of the digital I use isn't it ready? You can just listen just the you quite easily.

He built like a little box with LED's in it that that tells that lights up to tell her time it is she doesn't have to look at the clock. And I will say actually, I know one is more excited to make fun of Mark Zuckerberg than me, but I will say that is good advice. If you wake up in the middle of the night to P or something don't look at what time it is. That's going to help you that won't do anything. Just go back to sleep. If your cans this comes I say it all the time. This comes back to commitment.

Do not look at the clock. Does not help you. I did it last night. I got up to pee or something was wrong. And I and I and I kind of did a little putter through the house.

You are not sharing a dock, and it's very confusing. What is it called? It's called tool T U L, and they'll want over the U two two. And it's called the tool needlepoint. Now, I will say do not like the industrial design of the pen. I feel like the pen is a little bit of a space pin, which I do not like, I just give me just make it simple. Okay. This has a gradient on it. Okay tool. Needlepoint? Okay. But it has a good click. I think that writing action is really good. Oh, needle space point needle space point. Okay. I'm sorry. I thought it was for crafts. Okay. I see. It's a pen tool. Retractable gel pens zero point five millimeter needle space point black four-pack by tool. Yeah. I endorse. These pens. I switched to using them at work. And that's all that's on my desk. Okay. Next up. Is you move. You're moving really fast. Okay. All right next one next one. We got a very nice. Note from Dr thank you. Dr Don, Don, keep us and thanked us for coming into the podcast studio and hang out. I don't understand that feels like if feels like we should have sent actor Donna, thank you. Yes. That's the kind of thing we should do. As a matter of fact, we have guests them like Dubai Friday windbreaker. And thank you know. Yeah. That's a good idea. Yeah. You can make make on the spot. You just take one off the coat rack, and he right by Friday on it and say, thank you. Here's your that. Is hasn't? That's a big has fucking classy move, sending a little. Thank you note. This is this is your windbreaker now. Yeah. I often fantasized about becoming thank you know, guy. I think so much about becoming thank you know, the little like the the Louis bit where he's like he saw the troop getting on the plane and he thought about giving up his class seat, and he didn't do it. But he's like, I'm a good person for thinking that I could have done that. Oh, I absolutely agree. I think just have you have considered it as tremendous gesture on your part. So now to me step zero of doing that would be I would need to go through all my contacts and gate them. With current addresses. Oh god. Here we go. So that when I see someone I could use one of those apps that makes a card, and I would sort of be like boop, send a card to Dr Don done. Yeah. Let's, you know, also, you're saying, okay. So you're going to automate gratitude. Maybe you could do a plug and you could do a keyboard maestro or a series shortcut. Then got it to Dr dawn to be clear. I would manually type in a note saying thanks for coming on the show and drag picture my cat in there. You do use text expand or do fill inform non sponsor this week. But you could do a filling form for text expand her and express your gratitude that way nobody curves for thirty seconds. Okay. Hi. Sort of Dubai. Friday is brought to you in part by slack the messaging app. Teens the teens actual quick it slacking. Slugging hard thread offline I think it's going to involve a Popper Popper, you dab. My my daughter is introduced ironic dabbing, she's like all my friends of me hate having. So we brought back dabbing and I had to explain you. Gotta be careful with that. Because I used to make fun. Eddie veterans voice, everybody in my master going here. And then we couldn't stop doing it. So be careful with with running dabs. That's all I wanna say urban dictionary third definition of slacking when she's on her period. So you finger her butt hole. Okay. The end. All right. What? You moving fast. Okay. Thank you to buttocks. I hope I'm saying I right from the Dubai Friday. Discord sent us a little holiday card and very nice note that is framed on his desk. Thank you for that. Let's see moving on. This is the barbecue sauce sky. Are this was so good? Thank you to Kyle so much barbecue sauce that he makes it is named after his great grandfather. And his oh, it's named after great grandfather. He started the company with his dad. I'm looking now for the name of the barbecue sauce company, which I hope is on the note because I do not have the sauce with me here. I have this office. We'll put it in show notes is it called daddy. Sam's. I think it's the I hope so daddy's I believe it's called daddy's. Take you can't use it now. So we received a few jars of the daddy barbecue sauce, and I have to say it was a fucking good barbecue sauce. It was really good barbecue sauce. Definitely I personally endorse the daddy. Sam's brand of barbecue sauce. Yeah. It's definitely named daddy Sam. So it's the what's the nature, which the nature like Zam. I've recently got I'm not a nut about it. But I've gotten a little bit more into varieties of hot sauce. What is it you? 'cause you know, they're different. And like what is it you like about daddy Sam what what do you like about us? I I'm out of my sweet smoky zesty vinegar. Okay. So the main thing I liked first of all was the texture. I really like a thick gooky barbecue sauce to me. I don't number one. I don't think you should be cooking with barbecue sauce. I think barbeque put on win you're done. So it's a huge misunderstanding. Yeah. And when you when you cook it on you do not want some sort of thin liquidity thing, you want a nice like a. Thick sauce. It's going to stick to the meat isn't lesson barbecue sauce. I mean, like, I know about the thing with like ding Ling guys trying to make ribs by taking a raw rack of ribs putting barbecue on it. And throwing it on the grill without any parking is in something you kinda wanna finish with my saying that you can finish with a sauces. Zesty thick sauce. Lot can't finish with. I can't finish without the thoughts. Alex, please, please. This is cooking question weird. So when you're ready when you're ready to finish. And you do you deploy the sauce Sam Huckle, Mr Sam, Mr. SAM's, my father, daddy, said something I like to call slacking? Also, thank you to the many many listeners who sent in books for me to put in my little library. Now, there's a few more little free libraries up on the Bloomingdale trail in Chicago, all of the books have been deployed most of them have been taken. That was very very nice and made me really happy. If people have listen if you have extra books, and you want me to give them out in my little free library. You can go ahead and send them to the office. Just put it CO maxim in nineteen seventeen north Elston, Illinois, sixty two and I did want to give a special shout out to Joey who gave a complete set of the dune trilogy. And that was probably just personally that was I thought that was like the coolest book that I put out there. That's does that take up a lot of cubic inches aren't those large Holmes books do dunes reasonably sized science fiction, but it's reasonably size. Okay. Okay. Also, a bunch of people. 'al sometimes send things without saying who they are which is totally okay. And someone sent me a book called the tomboy survival guide, which I love. So thank you for whoever did that and someone sent a bunch of European chocolate, which was addressed to me. So I kept it. And if you just want to keep sending plane European chocolate or crunchies as we've talked about before, you know, I'm not saying you should. But you look at crunchy you when you eight that Vania egg, you were happy that it had Krispy. I do. That's that's the thing. Don't like flavors. Love textures interesting, my friend, Harry's to say, you know, the best way to get stuff in life is to ask for it. I still think about that in your telling people, you're guiding them, you know. You know, send me chocolate semi European chocolates. But don't make them weird. I had a really scarring incident involving candy as a child we went to my like around. 'cause I saw the story like around Christmas time, we went to my father's boss's house, wonderful guy wonderful family, and we went to do a gift exchange, and they said, well, Maryland, we have something for you. Oh, wow. Thank you. Oh my God. It's a box of candy and opened up and me I'm gonna I'm gonna dumb kid from Ohio. And I'm thinking, oh, this is going to be like my personal be spoke box of Nestle's. And I will I will plow into these the very first one of them. I put in my mouth in my recollection. It was a literal holocaust because it involves like some kind of like the bad chocolate. Like, you know, when you're a little kid and you got baker's chocolate refrigerator. And you're like you keep eating it and going I keep forgetting how terrible this is bitter chocolate on the outside of I know it had a nut. It had a big ass nut. I think it had that orange stuff. The. Orange foam that should not be in candy. I took one bite of it. I am mmediately wanted to throw up, but I didn't wanna be rude. So I held it in my mouth for an hour. Good job is the feet for a child. Wow. It was it was. So why did they have to make chocolate interesting? I can't I mean like I like I like a dark chocolate I've grown to enjoy a dark chocolate. But why do they have to put all the stuff in candy where you gotta give guide. There's a guy you buy a box of candy. It comes with a a map. You're not playing D. You're trying to have a treat. Why don't we have to do people? Like those people actually like the weird ones. Okay. I've never I don't think as far as I know I received any treats with a guide is this Haya thing. What is happening? If you go to your Walgreens or similar, okay? Let's say it's around. Let's around the Valentine's Day holiday, and you pick you up a heart shaped box of the Russell stover's, and it's gonna be a wackadoo combination of weird shit. And it includes. A map. Oh, I see what you're saying has a map to show you this is this is the the disgusting like orange foam one. And then, of course, like you through and you pick up the normal ones that a person would I don't know. Maybe I'm just lumping. Like, maybe I just don't like nice things. I don't like we're chocolate. Just gimme a dark chocolate and quit fucking around. I'll Aglietta a kit Kat bar. I'll eat most of the quotidian chocolate products. But like why does it have to be clever? You know what I'm saying? When there's one of those gift. Chocolates, where it's like a bunch of little cubes, and then you have all the little truffles, and they're all different colors. Yes. Guide where you have to hold the guide up. And you're like, oh, this one is stash e and lemon rind. Iraq with suspicion. Most of those will not be good. And here's the thing. If you're not everyone, I feel like in those situations when you crack one of those things open you're going to get a first round draft pick, and that guy is going to be a performer. Okay. That's com while you're gonna get the peanuts. You're going to get you're gonna get the milk chocolate dark chocolate this stuff that lots of normal. People would enjoy putting in there fucking now. Let's just say that's the cheese pizza of the. Rifkin now by the time you come around your second round draft pick. And that thing is going around for a second circle. Yes. Are nobody wants the dried squid truffle draft you right? Nobody wants it. And the fall off from round one around to. Oh, boy, not good. It's like to order of magnitude not good that it's like one like one hundred good. Oh, this one is a fish sauce and toffee. It's got to. I there's like there's all kinds of stuff. I don't want to belabor this. But like there's all kinds of stuff like this phenomenon that I in my own head years ago that I used to call Maccarone, and it's the phenomena phenomenon of it suddenly becomes necessary for everybody to get into something. You're not doing about macaroni. Like for one time. It was like buying a Ford Bronco. Like, why did everybody in nineteen ninety nine need an SUV? But everybody bought one because everybody had the had one anybody actually happy with varieties of chocolate follow up. Fox News avengers. Endgame leaves a fan hospitalized for uncontrollable crying. Oh. The long-awaited ending. What happens to be everyone's favourite avengers? In endgame. This emotional instability is everything right now is breaking early records and also leaving fans extremely emotional van cried so much during the movie she began hyperventilating. And having trouble breathing was given oxygen released from the hospital. I'm sorry. You got to you got an extreme case of the vincis. The other thing Merlin, the Maccarone principle is I have observed it super super acutely with the presidential primary because I really can. I really have. I I really I've really gone full doctor Manhattan on this on this election. I'm I'm not watching. I'm not painting. I'm not sitting on Mars to be away from all this you paint your penis and put a tattoo on your head. I'm not going to discuss my hawk. Really? Spoilers. Also, also put a fork in this one. And now what symbol max withdraw on his forehead. We can come back to that. Exactly. I don't think it's going to be hydrogen. But I'm curious what it's going to be. Yes. So you've gone document Hatton on this election. You follow in the polls. You fall in the polls max I'm watching from afar, but I'm not like working. Okay. You're not gonna get involved in their mess. You're taking clocks apart with your mind. I I am definitely done with elections right now. I finished all the municipal elections. I'm not working on any campaigns. I have a few sort of advocacy issues in Chicago that I'm involved in. But I'm seriously, I kind of took stock the other day of I I really really well and all the elections. I worked out in Chicago. It was like one of the best election cycles in my life. Got a bunch of cool people like the city council, and I felt I felt awful. Like, it was I feel I felt my experience was I felt all of the lows of the stress the misery having to deal with these like just absolute assholes and incompetent people like, I really I really. Was miserable. Every single hour and minute that I was working on it. And it felt like it went on forever. And I experienced none of the happiness of winning. And I think that might maybe as a sign that I need to take a break from politics. Make some board games or something. Yeah. I I've gotten. Gotten pretty fatigued with the list. Yeah. Like visiting. No, no, no. Because you're a man will file on Congo. But no, I still read it every day. I read it when I get up to two in the morning. Well, my mind has gotten started out better than yours. But now it's gotten way better than yours because I have done some poor runing. I've done a lot of pruning, and I got some I got some notes for you on your list move, David corn. There's so much stuff where I just can't. I'm I agree with you on the doctor Manhattan thing. But like it, you know, how it is. There's something obvious, and it takes a long time to sink in. And it's like cod's so embarrassing to say this is not making me happy. Like does it again stuff? You guys are going to yell at me about because it's very chop. Oh to yell at me about this. But like, I can't watch NB MSNBC anymore. Like, I would watch and I go how are we really going to get him tonight? And now it's just like it's also it just it feels like it feels like FOX for liberals. It just feels like you're telling me what I wanna hear. Also, there's also a feeling of like do you like the idea in psychology of learned helplessness? The experiment is really grim. It would take like a dog, and they would put they would put the dog in a room with floor. That was electrified and periodically. I don't remember exactly what it was. But they would like ring a bell, and then like electrify the floor and it first dog would try to take all these measures. So I could be like jumping and climbing up the walls, and and it would be trying to avoid the electric shocks. And after a certain number of them, it would just sort of accept it's fate and lie down because it realized there's nothing I can do to choosers thing can happen to me. And that's like a psychological phenomenon. That's like observed in people too. And I really get. Not to be like to grim about it. But like, I really think there's this feeling that I I'm recognizing myself. And I do not like literally anything that happens. No matter what it is. It all just becomes this paste of learned helplessness where it's like, oh, cool. Like, the attorney general is this whole Muller letter to the attorney general that he misrepresented the report or whatever. And it's like, and I'm just going like all the cool. I'll just lie down on the floor because that's not gonna help. That's not going to do anything. And I do not like that feeling because it's like actually sameday talk about on a little bit. This week is the whole like I talked about criticized so much stuff that they do that. So funny, but like where your to become the champion poster like the one who posts like you have to be like, yeah, that's cool. Like, you have to become like so hard as the person who feels no actual emotion about anything, and I'm gonna make a really important false here. Which is that like I feel like I'm so torn. Between these poles of. No, this is really like seriously emotionally continuing to rip me apart on multiple levels. You know, just like, you know, but but like there's the the two poles of like as used to say max, we got him this time that's finally gonna you know, be this thing versus like that all matter, and I don't like feeling either of those things as neither one of those is realistic useful or actionable and neither one of the make me a better human being both of those making more like just a different kind of dick on the other hand. There is the so like I feel like one poll of Twitter, and this is my like Ivica was on Twitter. That's just a private code weird Twitter where I renew GMs sort of the weird Twitter people, and they're all just like cynics, and they all they all urine for death. And it makes me I makes me laugh, but also it makes me so I mean, it is a total learnt it's total lie down on the floor because you're gonna get electrocuted anyway, and that's on one. And then on the other. You've got the sort of uncritical positively hope punk bullshit that we there. Sorry. Sorry. I sent the article. I'm sorry. I'm glad I know the word for it. I'm glad I know that it's a thing. Is that the first time you've heard it? Yeah. All right. No. Let's just pause here. I have some going with this. But let's just establish. What does is? So this isn't a static and entertainment called hope punk, and Alex you and explain it. Okay. Sometimes tumbler the social network that our friend Marco Arment founded the teens go on and Marco for taking all the pornography off of. Yeah. Call buddy. Hi, there were so many gifts is he the one responsible for all the ads for Facebook and nasal vase. I think so I think so I finally went on tumbler the other day just to honor what's happening on this ghost town. And I used to spend six hours a day on my place, and I went on and I had seen. I literally had not been on since the since the fan of snap or they took half the content off. And I saw there's a little thing where it's like look at all your posts that have been flagged, and I had like four post were flagged and two of them were like renaissance paintings. They were like frescoes, and we're flagged it for adult content. And I was like you've got to be fucking kidding me with this. That is some mad titan bullshit. Well, yeah. And flag. They've flag it, and then I I had I had several including a picture of Dr Manhattan. I had several of the. I think one I sent you was my daughter having a poorly written the words cyclops on an index card. But like, I think maybe like the palm of her hand look like a, but so it got flagged by the I. And so the funny part is if you send have you tried like saying please on flag? This have you have you done that? No, no within within. I wanna say, oh, I wanna say fifteen seconds. Good. Because the I'm sorry. I'm thinking your topic. The is not smart. We you're good is in it. It went back on. Oh, yeah. We undone some poor person on the Indian subcontinent had to verify that wasn't a, but man. I want to add a no car to the stack of customer support. I have a funny story about that. But anyway, okay. So tumbler tumbler you gotta tumble because if Dana's the porn honk. Okay. Mersa maher. She was like you should have gone for the head. And then it was done. Oh my gosh. Well, hope punk is the opposite of grim dark. Do you know what grim dark, Johnny Depp character? Yeah. Uh-huh. No of grim dark. It's twisted. For me to understand now. Yep. Edge lord. Alex sounds pretty damaged. I'm sorry. Hope punk is part of a wider, cultural and storytelling trend toward up to Missouri, and positively in the face of bleak times has that's of course, Jon Rao that's never existed before. And this is the first time anybody's thought of it. Now all wanted to say if popping back down all the way into the stack we started here was on the one hand of Twitter on the one poll, you have the weird Twitter people, and it's just like total learnt helplessness. And then on the other hand, you have windmill maranda who tweets congrats to the NAM's the nam not the non nam and the scenery chewers this season with their nam nam nam 's can you heck and believe that we still get to do plays and musicals as dolts. How lucky are we even to get to do this very very lucky look around nine emoji hearts and then hashtag Tony awards twenty nineteen. That makes I'm sorry. It's very positive. I'm sorry. Women new your listener. But that tweet me onto die. Like. I'm poisoned by Iranian that tweet. A makes me feel so much second hand embarrassment that I want. Oh, I'm sure. Make that off. Second hand embarrassment. Secondhand smoke. No that's phenomenon. It's like when you watch Michael Scott do something on the office. When you watch him do like a character. You're just like, oh, it's cringing. It's like. That's how I feel when I see when I see him tweet this. I I want I won't get into a whole. And I know you're fans, so that's got to be complicated for you. I like Lynn in the heights in the heights in the heights today in the heights. I have no comment on lin-manuel Miranda's tweets. He seems like a genuinely nice seems like he's really he looks like he doesn't get enough sleep. And that worries. Oh, yeah. No. It's he tweets if he's talking to a bunch of children in middle school. And that is a good thing. Sometimes and I don't like it's for you. Just. Tweets. Don't look at the Domian. But having what you're both. Right. Thank you. I see what you're saying. I think you've done a good job. At a max. I think you've done a nice job of showing the contrast. You got the crimes of of Grendel dark over here. And then over over there, you got the musical man making hearts, so which one which one are we going to be the other things very frustrating is like, I I was I've been periodically Twitter is bad for me. And I makes me unhappy bad for my brain. And I don't wanna be somebody. Please please do super coat of. Don't wanna be unto. I'm not. No, you don't wanna like it. You don't wanna like me? I don't wanna I don't wanna be onto it made. You like it. They made you like it this whole nonsense with Jack Dorsey meeting with Trump like I really had this powerful feeling of now's the time. Like, I just I need to cut my losses and go Bunn. Here's my other mama is like I have really tried taking Twitter off my phone. I've deleted all my tweets. I'm just going to walk away from this for a couple of weeks or whatever. And I it's really hard for me to fucking tell the news because I use like Aaliyah's like apple news. I sit up liar with some news sources, but like damn like, the news is so fucking bad. Like, they're all the news today was like new details about some girl that was kidnapped and Wisconsin six months ago, and the that's not material in my life. I don't give a shit about that don't I don't wanna see those headlines. And then there's very little coverage of the important stuff. That's happening in politics that I care about. So it's very it's I mean, I genuinely like. I'm upsets me that it's very hard to Twitter as the only way I know how to read the news. God, you're you're so you're so right. And this is you know, how I'm the not the will. I'm the mad of the show because I watch SNL, you know, as my parents, I also still I still look at Twitter. I still look at Twitter moments like fairly often often often. No. But it's it's it's absolutely nexus for what is being described here. Because on the one hand, it's like, oh, you know, somebody you liked in sports fucks dogs, and you're like, oh of sucks. Steph Curry's finger is super fucked up. Here's a slide show then on the other hand, it's like it's not even that though. It's like users react to Steph Curry's fucked up finger. Oh, yeah. One hundred hundred percent. But then you get into on the other end of that spectrum pardon my saying on the other end of the spectrum. Now, you've got like, oh, you're not gonna believe these fan reactions when aria is lit a f- pound sign sharp knife, or whatever. And it's just all like this. And then you know, what it is. Let me tell you what it is. It's a bunch of black lady reaction shifts those same black lady reaction shifts over, and that's what Twitter decides the collect. Is that one lady going? Ooh. And the other lay going no you didn't. And they're like, it's just it's a bunch. Oh, and somebody crying while holding wine or whatever. And it's just like, that's that's was cure for us. It's duct mucking council. Another thing that makes me on a lie down on a floor is when I see the Twitter moments and the things that they editorially collect the Maryland Streep. What's her name, Meryl Streep string slowly at the Oscars? Yeah. Everyone like applauding sports thing with that. Just like when I see the banal. Alright somebody in the Royal family moved there. I. What? For now for shit that Twitter is like because what is the moments the moment that Taylor swift looks like a bar code. The the the stuff moments. That's their editorial discretion of like, this is what we think is good about this platform. We know what you like you fucking hogs. We the trough stop taking your face out of the trough WWE going back to Saudi Arabia with Goldberg cool. So cool. I love to know that have you considered just putting your political list like just just have it as an RSS feed like each person as an RSS feed in lier in reader. And then you just look at those. Yes. But the signal to noise ratio is is really bad. And then I went in the when I do go back on Twitter. There's whole things I'm like damn. I can't believe I missed this this whole like conversation like it is it's like it is not I'm telling you like I've put a I've put dozens of hours of work and just finding a way to sort of get the news and know what people are talking about. And I don't know how to do it without Twitter. Twitter Twitter is so bad. I also, hey, you Jerry on Twitter, you need a Gary you need someone with a printout all the tweets and all of the conversations and whispers into tier year. What me another privacy concern clown? But the the one who holds the levion. I apologize. Yes. That large magnifying glass gala, bam airy. Yeah. Gary it was actually the not the the first spoiler. Not big spoilers miss. Remembering who are we talking about? Buster who we talking about? We're talking about Gary from veep. Okay. Yeah. Just a poster. Yes. Okay. Good. I thought I thought I would had like some kind of an incident. Sorry. Okay. I know veep Cup dark real fast on behind one. That would be a good. Smaller smart is that what you call it. After show would be the show so goddamn good boy school shooting. I have been working because max, I still look at your list. Did you guys see them? Most recent episode of the from. I it's very good. Crinkle? Crank comes. All the while criminal. Merlin. If you see in the it would be that would be very different. Crooked crank in there. We're gonna die. I tried to make my my list more like what I want my list to be. And I've used the terribleness of your list as a model now. Now, real talk used people. I learned about from your list here. We're talking about are bespoke Twitter poll, political Twitter lists that max introduced us to get so frustrated with the bullshit on your list that I made my own and because some people on years that are just. And I don't have any way to remove them because it's your list, you should let me edit it. But can I can I do that? Don't do that Ono. That'll be a whole thing. Is that a is that a feature? No, no collaboration could be list. I'm opening on China make warlike what I've always wanted. It to be is like I've ever moved a lot. Obviously, there's some people I had to actually go and block because I never wanna see their thing. Again, the can you Jonathan axios? I don't I don't wanna see you. Yeah. I know you linked to that buddy. You'll inc. Ailing too. That again, buddy like, yeah. Yeah. The yes guy get it. I saw people had him. He should be cancelled. Now, another some people like, you know, I mean people that I novel nominally like and like like, okay. So I try to focus now. More little bit more on original news, breakers versus breaking news. Here's the thing. Everybody just talked about mar or like, you know, I saw this on the Washington Post. So now, I'm telling you because you don't need eleven those back in your firehose as max of two thousand sixteen you crave. That right. That was important. Need to see the fire hose, I think that was one of your points was that when I jump in. I need to find out what everybody is talking about. Because these are the things that will affect what happens next. Not always. I do not always want to go on Twitter and drink from the firehouse. No, I'm talking about two thousand sixteen. I think that was when you know even know even now I want that like that is a mode that I want to be able to activate to be like drop me in it. Let me see what the fuck everyone is saying right now, I think that is that can be a good role for that. Unless you look at it too much like I do took off a lot of the dunkers you still keep a lot of the dunkers. There are the dunkers and the people who are trying to do weird Twitter. And I think, you know, people that I'm talking about here, they rarely publish things. They do have a lot of not funny. Dunks took off the dunkers and kept. Of course, kept the people who are to my taste genuinely funny and genuinely good at Twitter, so like actually Feinberg. Oh, yeah. You know, she's on there. I think she's funny as shit. Dave Weigel, David's cough, like the exchanges between David's cough, and Eric Gellar. Should be a museum someday there exchanges about misunderstanding. Science fiction and fantasy references need to be in the Smithsonian. But like I had to take off the stuff that me keep going. Popa pup over and I don't know if it's gotten better, but like engines medicine do it anymore. I don't know. Like, I don't know where I am. I don't know what's happening. I hear you guys know that you can just sometimes not look at it more. You can look at it more often at times like a for example, Alex, this is like telling if you met a heroin addict. And you're like, you know, you could just not do heroin. No, it's really not like that. That's really telling John Roderick just make a checklist chef really. This. Not work out. Does. Okay. Then let's get you some methadone which is like like micro blog or something like figs. Yeah. Yeah. That's the same. Vice I've been giving you for so long. And I feel like you really struggling which is like why don't you just stop having CD? Like, why do you do that? Why do you keep having TD frustrating that is not a psychic? I don't know. Alex have advised she several times to just stop. I have stopped in actually I've so I took everything off of my phone because that's what the cool kids are doing. Now, deleting, Twitter and Instagram and everything of their phone, and then I get like panicked. I get like a panic techs of. Hey, did you see you left me on red in your dams? And I'm like, I don't even know what that means. Like, it's it's become Facebook for me like I don't want. I don't want direct messages to be like, I enjoyed your messages. But I don't wanna Bisley you've you've hot glued your mail box. Shut like which is interesting. But like you keep your teams mostly opened all the people like people are going to write to you. You know what I mean? No. And I yes. And I try to respond to them in a timely matter manner. How people use DM's I don't care. But if it was part of my job and max was like, okay. The way that we are going to communicate is direct messages on Twitter than it's like, okay? That works that that's part of. But but why should good employees? You'll do anything. No. Stricken from the record. But it's not right now pertinent. However, if we're going to a convention or something, I always have Twitter Instagram on my phone because I think it's like fun and nice to see those things you better believe that WW DC, I'm going to be slurping up all of those hot takes and the bad jokes because I enjoy it, and it's fun. But I I don't know. I don't wanna hear opinions about like. An adult's sex scene on a fantasy television show. Like, it's really just not a thing. I want I boy the game of thrones dialogue. Yep. No, not not not not let me just say, Dr Manhattan says that does not reflect on your society. No, which I'm which part of the dialogue. Just the way that everybody talks about the show that the mass conversation surrounding game of thrones the things that people argue about the way they talk about it the way they appreciate it. As fans they are enjoying it in the wrong way. And I saw that in all seriousness having debates over whether some character is a quote, unquote. Mary sue or not like, honestly, everybody. Go everyone needs to show the fuck up about that Alex of response to this. Please. Why okay. How can someone enjoy a fantastical show wrong? Like, it's I just. It's not politics. I know this what I'm saying. Like all right, pick something that you know, the game of thrones. Is you're saying are you saying they take the bait? Yes. The take the bid their tail but they're not enjoying the show though is the it's the same. As like, how did how did Ray gets gets a good at light swords? Like all the sudden like nobody asked how is the John snow can suddenly rendering, technically, there's a reason Gary, and you're that kind of thing nobody questions like when somebody else does extrordinary things. It's like when a when a girl does extrordinary things, then you're screwing up my fantasy my complaint specifically that okay? I see you're basically saying don't take the bait. I'm thinking do not take the bait. I'm a guy with eight nine followers. An egg avatar goes online and says Ari as Mary sue because he here's a fact game. Thrones is a blue have I talked to you. We talked about this that there's like if a belief show different mass media team and red team and game of thrones is a hundred percent of blue team show. It's a thing that Walking Dead is red rocking red team show. And I think there are things coated in these shows that do appeal to the sort of ideology of blue team and red team. But also, it's just sometimes it's just how it is. Right. Like wise game of thrones a blue team show. I don't think there's anything like deeply coated in the ideology of game of thrones. That makes a blue team show. But it's just that that's who happens to own HBO and enjoy it and talk about it because that's no, no, no, it's because it's an HBO show. An HBO is just traditionally, that's that's that's interesting. I I would have said I mean. Haven't thought about this? But like I would have said that this is so fucking boring on taking the bait. But like I like Walking Dead in some ways the early seasons of Walking Dead. But I think. Cares. The thing about game of thrones is like is it is about like people have all these like, you pretty much mostly know, why somebody has a given motivation on game of thrones. It's not really confusing like what is little finger one. Like, what does certainly one? What does Danny want? Like, it's they say it, and it's repeated, and you know, know, deniro really wants the boy do I have so many. I have so many things to say about what kind of person would write that. And what kind of people would read that and find it very profound. And I'm not allowed to say it on the podcast say those still, okay? Let after no it's things that I'm not saying the podcast anymore. There's a group of people who would who would read a piece of fiction where all of the characters internal states are made explicit. So that you have to you never have to sort of read any subtext or imagine what they might be feeling or wanting. That was yes. Okay. That's that's probably fair. That was the first part of thought. And then the important part of the thought was because I think it's kind of a show about having your reasons why you do things trying to trying to do what you consider to be the right thing. And then you get killed. I think that's kind of what makes it a blue show in some ways. That's what makes grim dark because like because like the one way to really show your ass on that show is to try to do the right thing. And then you're fucked. Yeah. So what about someone like, okay? I really game of thrones was like one of the first shows that I got to watch. I don't know it's hard to explain I guess because I was like out of the house and could wa- like, I just started college. And it's like, oh, I can watch a really dark show and they're coming naked people, and I won't get in trouble for it. And I like, yes, I took the bait very early on there. I got into eter fights. And I it's just it's like a Blute. It's first of all it's a rare game of thrones. As a rare thing now because it's a true lease it feels to me like a true, mass media, exactly. And that's SEIs wrote a really good piece about that of like, this is the last show we are going to watch together. I don't think so. Oh, but I I think they're fewer and fewer and fewer because everything now is like a youtuber everything is more faction factionalized and fractured and game of thrones. In the marvel emcees stuff in vendors. I part of the appeal for me is it feels like you're in the black hole in the center of the universe. You're like this is it. Everyone's watching it. I mean, the mix with everyone I'm doing this thing. And I have a lot more to say about that. And how that's not correct. But anyway, then I think there's guys who are like it's the same thing as gamer gate. It's the same thing as Trump. It's the same thing. It's basically trolls who realize that where there exists a mass market thing. You know, everyone's attention focused leaser focused on this one thing they can sort of arbitrage that by doing their take their nine followers to go Arias. Mary sue, and now, everyone, basically, they're basically doing emotional SEO, everyone with twenty thousand followers, they they know they know what stuff is gonna provoke people. Yes. Yes. And they're just they're it's it's it's pure, and I'm not saying people shouldn't. Ah like it. Listen, if you ever critique of the show, and you wanna make like a good faith critique of the show, that's fine. And like, the there are lots of smart people that we've had on this program who critiques of that show. And I think it's great. You should read them and amplify them in tweet them and make your own considerate. Critiques like don't get into a fucking flavor of the day Twitter spat over some extremely like marginal pop culture squabble it is its own barrister for everyone involved. That's not enjoying the show though. You're critiquing media criticism not. But then that does I I mean the thing about that. I do agree with this. Then it does provoke the true believers to jump in. Right. I mean, sorta like we were saying our thread with Todd where I was I was trying to sort of wine wants too much about this but throat with Todd a thing had happened. And I had said something like, well, you know, it's always I feel like it's important. Remember, how personal people's this is not profound, but how personal people's relationships with media can be. Personal in the sense that they feel very close to it. It may be feels like dare say part of their identity. So like an attack on that. It's an attack on them. And it's like how somebody enjoys it can be really intersectional wrong word, but like people have those different reasons. So you get provoked you don't realize it's you know, the sounds mean you don't realize it's a ding Ling four follower. Igman like you see it. And you know, I done. Good sound have to bring debris. Sullied to battle. Can we do that cleanly? So that someone can clip it on the overcast tool. How what what are you sound again about? No, the angry guy, which one you made a good team Robinson yell with a guy who was mad that someone was in. I don't. Oh that one this guy. Oh, they told me they call me or anything about trade. Hang a post all. Is there anything on a year in modern media? The Tim Robinson yelling. Fucking running bid on Detroiters where whenever he gets punched. He starts. He doubles over it starts screaming. Also, it's his is. He's not cross I cackling. But the thing that dumbest the dumbest fucking sketches in the world. Like, he's sees seated at a table near a celebrity likes, and he starts to choke. Can't breathe as friends like, you know, you're going to die is. It's so fucking stupid. But he's so committed to the dumb bit or like the one where he eats receipt. And then he thinks he gets like. All the slice and he got mud pie. And he's done. And he's doubled over on the couches. Did you see the one you got the reference and you see the womb won't or the the car runs in the store the hotdog car? All right. All right. All right guy. Driving the car too hot dog right now. Going to tell you we're gonna at someone's going to spank his butt Boston back. What? During his monologue while he's gathering. I'm just gonna put this in this car. Whoever it belongs to this is what people come for watch the show Detroiters. It's very good. And and also I'm tired of you leave the room. What's it called just just to say? I think you should I think you should leave with Tim Robinson. Tim robinson. Sam Richard sinner right now. My like favorite. I see. That's the thing. I think my brain broke in two thousand sixteen no for all this demand. Screaming is fucking hilarious to me. Oh, why is it so goddamn funny when he yells anyone? I have a thesis about that. But did anyone? So basically, I watched are you reading all these down, Alex by my can't we now have at least four things that maximize the return to I have to get he said he got. So I went in. I watched all I think you should leave fucking blew my mind was so funny and everyone in the comedy scene has been obsessed with the Troy tres for year for two or three years since I came out constantly telling me to watch it. I finally watch it all and that also blew my mind, and it's so good. Did you guys both immature? Richard split on my mind coatings are fucked up. I gotta get better. But but Richard split is like a he apparently. So I keep Lia the man. And apparently he and Richard split or like old friends like from Detroit second city, Detroit. And yeah, so you you would recommend would you recommend? I think you should leave watching that. I or you start with Detroit, I think you should leave a quick hit. And it's very intense and the episodes of like ten fifteen minutes long and just watch it because he'll get it's just weird. It's just weird intense humor and really tickled me. And it feels never hire family. Very of the moment. But if you love it, and you want more watch Detroiters Detroiters is the premises. Tim Robinson and Richard spot. Are they have an advertising firm in Detroit and they make like low budget local TV commercials for local businesses and the at the heart of the show, they really love each other. And they have this like completely positive like Annan, Leslie relationship that is so funny and so great. But also like it's just the weirdness of the town of the build this weird sort of Springfield esque town of characters in Detroit like the comedy is. So every beat and every moment of that show is so funny, and does have Tim Robinson yelling in it, which I do think is the funniest thing in the world. It's a hope punk as tumbler would say, I think something male rage is like a big thing right now. And what do you do with it? And how do you express it? And where does it go? Where does it come from? It's like a big subconscious thing like. Rage. And and part of Tim Robinson's comedy is he gets really angry. He gets really intensive anes are popping out. He's yelling. But it's in a way that is so goofy like their redder. And but it's not it's not like, it's not like, I think about something, you know, the people who did angry very funny in my mind was upright citizens brigade because their catchphrase on this show. You know, what there would always be in almost every every scenery every episode? It'd be something we're sticking, you know, what? And then he just get really fucking angry. But the part of the humor in a show like that or kids in the hall is that like the funny comes out of them trying to hold back the anger and Timur doesn't like the anger for. No. He gets right to the yell. He didn't read he gets real mad and read and bothered by everything and is is crossing a little bit. And there's just something. But also when it so impotent like male rage. Also is lost a little bit of. It's I don't know. It's like it's so funny to me when people get like, you know, what is it when they get like nude and read online, and they're just mashing their keyboard? Tweet. Tweet six hundred seventy four. And it's the other one of the things about male rage that so great though is when reason it's so fun to provoke into parody is like on the one hand. It is funny. How fucking hot like people get about something. But it's it's the misdirected nature of the rage and like Uman get misdirected on their rage. And then they're so microfilm on whatever the fuck it is you control the shit out of those guys because they're still like. Debate me in the parking lot. You. Remind carbon. This show. Every character. I think I think you should leave is they can't back down right there in they basically untenable lie or position there choking to death. And they can't admit it or they make up a lie about the babysitter being late. And they have their only way the only way forward is through like they only way forward is through. No matter how nude and read they get they cannot back down the other one. I will say my other favorite sketch that we have not talked about as Kim Heidegger with the jazz people famous tuk tuk sound I didn't see that one yet. What is up three? It's the charades. Okay. Yeah. It was good now my favorite, but very good. Oh. That's why that's why that's why it reminds me so favourably of Tim, and Eric and mister show. I mean, it's like mister show in the sense of like, I said, our textual everybody mister show in the sense of like, it has it has like a pretty familiar but stupid premise, but then the twists there's like the twist to it that make funny like the mobsters who are debating like what the biggest number is like some kind of an incredibly like weird bit. And then the twist, but the Tim and Eric like in or like, I really wish you guys would watch bedtime stories. It's on Hulu, and like, and it's more like a bedtime stories is morally Tim and Eric did the twilight zone, and it's so goddamn funny because they're so committed to the straightness of the bit. But also, the then -ness of the characters and like, there's just there's just something. Just just it's watching somebody be committed to something that stupid. It's really hard. Not to just love it. I feel like the two this is the essence of my of my problem. I feel like the two poles of Twitter. Are on one on one hand you have. Coal. You have. I don't fit in with. I don't want. I. Oh my gosh. Here's the place. Where can I go? I just want to know what the fuck is happening, and I do not want. I don't need it filtered through people being read and nude or people being you know, hope punk. I don't need any of that. I'm fucking grown ass, man. Just let me know what's happening you need to find your own spot on the screens. Dick Merlin, can you? Tell us about the dentist or are. We still in the temp can trap of like how many layers deep are. We I think I'm out. I hope you're writing everything down is there. Anything left that? I was supposed to come back to. You know, what actually max we can get to it in the after show now where people people find the after show. Oh, damn we haven't done this in a while. Listen. You probably wondering how do we make? This this podcast where we screaming the microphones and eat for an hour every week. There's no ads. We don't do any ads for. I don't know what ads are there on podcast nowadays mattresses. Oh, like a box of clothing that comes fell. You get box clothing. Well, what else can you? Oh, you can get you can get a you can get something for your hair loss. There's no collaboration for teams. You know? What else you're not gonna fucking get is the new episode of the reboot of startup just in the podcast feed because we know oh shots. We're not going to get that job doing that. Now, you're probably wondering how's it possible? How are these guys making a living? Well, I'm glad you asked even ever heard Maxine at the beginning. Here's another podcast. We think you'll like, but it's not this one. We don't do that. How can we Ford to to that? Max, let me tell you about the all new Ford. Focus merlin. Do do do do. Do do do do. Here's the deal everybody. We do the podcast, and we want money, and you listen to the podcast, and you have money and there's only one way to resolve this paradox. Which is you guys in this scenario? You're the adventures you need to suit up for one last mission. And you're going to need to go to give us your fucking money and have a bunch of crazy comic book Capers wherein, you give us five dollars a month to save the marvel cinematic universe. That's the only way. Is that something we can do? No. That's the listeners do that. We can't save the universe without you. Cut. Cox assemble in this scenario. I want to do an extreme Amazon challenge which. Which in the? Listen guys, if we get to our next goal, I'll send John Syracuse refrigerator. No. When you go to fucking dot com. Well, we'll have a meeting about it. Okay. Wait, wait. This is this is a challenge that I've wanted to do for so long. I used to return shit ton of stuff on Amazon thinking, oh, go to another consumer. No, no, no, no, no. You were to Alex. You thought you were doing the right thing. I wasn't. I wasn't. It just goes to liquidation centers, and you can bid on it. Sounds dark. Alex liquidation center. Yes. But you know, what we can save that we can buy things from liquidation dot com that had been returned on Amazon. It's it's like a mystery box. Been full toilet, paper Arrowhead. Hey, guess what? Now to people touch this. When you buy the public storage units that have been abandoned. What is what is that? Like, I oh I want to dig into a bunch of returned objects. So so badly. I don't know. Why these pajamas are barely? I don't know how I just want it so bad like, okay. The end. Thank you for your money. So yes, that's the challenge. We we can't afford it without the support of listeners. So you go to one last time you can go to ghost give us your fucking money dot com and sign up for five dollars a month. And that that is actually how we are able to afford doing the show with no ads. What do you get? If you do that you get an extra hole extra podcast feed. With a bonus episode every week. That's right. There's even more by Friday, we sit around and sort of exhaustedly pick the next challenge for next week. Sometimes we have some snacks, we complain about things and you can join in on all of that excitement for only five dollars a month. And that's give us your money dot com. Now, did you guys? See the veggies Merlin. You still haven't seen it yet? Right. I have to say, I think that's really disrespectful for someone who reports to care about the art of film to Nazi right? Yeah. For somebody who's as into critical theory, it's problematic that I haven't supported the. Yeah. You just talk about. I don't care. Oh, well, well, max you wanna talk about it? I know not. No, no, no, not hearing his Jen coming this week jenness here is we Merlin with your permission. We would like to invite on our friends, Jen Bain and Andrew Briggs to have a super special smaller smut show where we just it would be in the after show, and we just talk about the veggies for however long, it takes Osho is that this week. No, we're we're trying to plan something out. Okay. Okay. Yeah. Be really good guys emergency pod. I will say I've lost. I've lost a little bit of steam on. That's okay, Jen. And we'll talk about it. All right. Are you lost your vengeance? Steve. I I saw and I was all fired up. And I wanted to talk about how they get you you walk out and your lady. Oh, man. No sorry. You're not all your. Oh. How's it going? How's it going? Case it was like. What's the one was the Star Wars noise? I I will say I thought on I think I'm like opening night. All right. When it opened in the theater was very full and the key. And it was a lot of young people in the theater like maybe college age and high school kids like they were very on. Ironically, just like just like balls out having the time of their life in this movie. I saw some screaming applauding it. Did it made it much more fun? Although, however, minus points to are quite cinemas in Chicago at a number of issues number one. I think that the speakers one of the speaker channels was out it was basically sounded Radley. The sound is Radley grow. And that was that was bad in number that was number one. And number two was I believe they projected the film at the wrong aspect ratio. Oh, no. Yes. That they were there. So they're doing it in three D wide screen three eighty in regular wide screen and then just regular aspect ratio. We might have to ask Todd. But I got some Intel at arc light that they were projecting the wide screen version on some regular, showings. And that I feel like I've read semes- as where people say you're supposed to good projectionist Puspos ably. A good projections supposed to. Reset to one for like each one of those different screening that you're supposed to change like the the matting or whatever are you supposed to change that for each show? I know this is a little micro topic. But like when the movie came on it, listen, I'm Alex knows. I'm cursed. This is like one of my curses of like when something is at the wrong aspect ratio. Even if it's a tiny tiny bit, I can fucking spot it. It's like it's like sometimes I can tell also when there's big because of distortion or because of clipping when you can see when an icon off by one pixel his special curse. And then he shares it on Twitter. And then you look at it for the rest of your life, and you go my God, it's off by one pixel. God, do you know what I'm talking about? Oh, yeah. Yeah. And it's like refrigerators refrigerator doors, I can tell when something is the wrong aspect ratio. And what I saw was almost immediately. I was like people's faces are just a little bit squashed. Not not comic. This on Hulu watching old episodes of the Simpsons. I'm the only one is cursed. It's very. Clearly distorted in squeezing. Yeah. Like there's something fucked up, but but you could see the letters. You can see in the famous do people not see you out of your when I when I noticed it in the film. It wasn't obvious it. In fact, I might have been literally the only person in the movie theater who noticed, but I could just tell that it was supposed to be just a tiny bit wider than it was. And this faces were squashed up. And then I spent the whole rest of the movie whenever there was a circle on screen. I would just squint at it. And yeah, that's a little square. Maybe it's a sip. Dial. I think it was what happened. I think there was a split Diop's. The split Di Di Di up and listen in that scenario. Let's say you're in the theater, and you're like I am fairly confident that it's being projected at the wrong aspect ratio. I kinda game out on my head. 'cause I caught it real early. Right. When the movie starting right? I was like just to stipulate the movie has started. Everybody's watching the I walk in after the trailers. I generally do not wanna see. But you see what I'm saying though. Like if you are going to be that guy like they're going to have to tear up some rugs to restart the whole. Yep. I'm sitting. I'm sir sitting in the middle of my road. So if I was to leave what would be the procedure. If I wanted to sort of remedy, the situation definitely grumble and make huffing noises. I could've gotten up made everyone stand up, which they would've they would have been really upset. The sound of standing. And then I would have gone out to the manager. I would have been to someone I can't speak to a manager. And they would say, yes, I'm missing the movie and waiting for the manager. He comes out measures like what's wrong. And I'm like, I think the movies being projected at the wrong aspect ratio. Then he's probably gonna come into the theater and squint at the screen and either disagree with me. And tell me I'm crazy or say, I'm really sorry. It is. And then what's he gonna do? He's probably gonna offer me a refund for the film. But like, he's not gonna fix it. The stop the movie and fix it and restart it. And even if they did probably the whole theater would be fucking furious because I interrupted their movie experience. Actually, that's why I say, yes. No, there's no like good way. So I just sat there like a cock? And I watched it at the wrong aspect ratio. But I answered of eager to go back and see it again. I can't believe I'm saying this. But like, I really I really enjoyed the movie and there I was like so much going on. I'm not spoiling liked it. That's not a specific. You like something is not a spoiler. I liked it. And there was so much going on and. Was it was such a it was it was such a busy, and and cool film? I'm I'm wanna see it again. I kept no one is more. I'm so disappointed myself. But I really liked it. I've already seen it twice. And I had no one of those. I think this is probably a good thing. But it's one of those films when you see it it almost like immediately calls out to like I wanna see that again like role that again. I I want a good feeling just such. It was I- matchy started keeping a tally in theater of how many times I teared up. I didn't know I had. No, yeah. I'm actually really excited to talk about some like just the whole every like this in game of thrones. Give crying and not in the third act. The wait. What were you crying in parts that weren't the third act? Yes. Oh my God. Yes. Oh, yeah. God. Yep. Yep. I didn't know like I didn't want to care. I didn't even know cared. But. Whole lot. And I just so interesting because like I'm I'm not saying this sound like controversial. But like in the same way that max had a resistance into the Harry Potter movies initially because he thought they weren't enough. Like the books is interesting. If I could say, it sounds like your attachment to material comes through the movies, and the mythology and relationships of the movie characters not because of you you have some special childhood link to the comics. Right. I know I'm not I'm not criticizing. I'm saying that's actually cool interesting. Oh, no, no, no. I'm actually just sort of that was it was towards myself. Not not. I just didn't realize what a big part of my life, the marvel films like even the ones that I don't flack. But when I was watching the film, it did you have the ironman flashback. I had a powerful flashback to exactly where I was when I saw the first film. And I remember thinking, I look never literally never thought about this in my entire life until I was in that movie watching the film, and I thought and I thought man, I remember that movie came out, and I was in college. And I think believe I was a sophomore in college and all my nerd friends. We're all good aren't man, they're making an iron man movie. We have to go see. And I was like there's a there's a superhero call iron, man. And you're like, and you're like you're excited for the film about firemen. And then it was like everyone was talking about it and made a bunch of money. And I was like everyone's watching film about iron man, and like just just to say starring Robert Downey junior. What Sino and then I went and saw it. And I was like God damn those good movie. Really funny movie. Not experiment. Did not expect it to be funny. I remember the exa- a new movie theatre had just opened in Florida. And it was like an actual good theater. And so we were like, yeah. We're I went to go see iron man with my grandparents because they liked Robert Downey junior. And I went. Because I love iron man, and I live in east superhero who doesn't have magical powers, but like has amazing gadgets or is kind of a cyborg, and I still remember Robert Downey junior like building the what was it the Mark one in. It's just and when the explosion happens behind him in the desert like, I it's so great. I had no idea that it. I don't know. It's very interesting. I also when I went back, I was reading a little bit of like marvel stuff about the movie or whatever, and I found this amazing thing. So this is from cinema blend way back in nineteen ninety eight marvel entertainment was looking for an influx of cash after the company emerged from bankruptcy. Filed two years prior at the same time Sony Pictures, executive by the name of your Landau was looking to secure the big screen rights to Spiderman current chairman and former CEO of marvel Pearl mutter countered by offering Sony the rights to nearly every marvel character, including the likes of iron, man. Thor Black Panther ant, man and ant man, four wait for it. Twenty five million dollars. Landau took you'll back to the brass at Sony who as he recalled responded, quote, nobody gives a shit about any of the other marvel characters go back to deal fighter, man. They could have owned a home this characters. Nobody gives a shit about any of the other Michael kinda true. Probably true. Yeah. I mean that that's the thing is like when I guess it the same year that one of the Batman movies and are man came out. But anyway, ironman like, so obviously represented a new idea about how you could do these things and then like all of your of your objections or your skepticism about who is this had become a somewhat obscure character. Like, the ventures were kind of a big deal in the sixties. But like, you know, but like I was not like a marquee character. But then an and Robert Downey junior and like, but no, we think of it. Now, understandably as we'll obviously you have this multi like what was it made the first day. I think NG's made like three quarters of a billion dollars outside the US know, and it's just nuts. And it's like, but at the time you gotta remember like marvelous on skid. It's man they were they were bad shape. Well, I definitely did have a that this movie like successfully gave me that feeling of like of like man, I not only have the film's gonna journey like I've gone journey with the films like that. That's that's what this movie inspired me think about and that's that is more than I thought was possible for these movies to leave you with so kudos to you. Make it a movie to see why I enjoy I really felt like it was a big event. Now, one of my big other things got under my skin about what was the other one Infinity war Infinity were obviously ends it's very dark film, and it ends and kind of tragedy and a lot of people in our circle got grim dark upset at the film. And they gave it they made YouTube videos reviewing and stuff where they were like mad because they're like are can't believe marvel would hurt my friends the avengers in this way. Like they were really upset like, and I was like you'd be out of your fucking gourd. Like that is too much to be mad that the movie had an. Didn't have a happy ending for your superhero friends, and especially for part one of a two part movie like and also like and not again, like how can how could they lead Harry Potter in this state? Like mad. Rupert Grint listening his mind. You can't have your imaginary friends like left up a tree as part of a plot structure. Like, I it's just. Mind boggling, but man, like it just this all of the how uncomfortable that movie was and and whatever to me were fixed in this movie made me very satisfied. Give me a lot to think about I liked it. I was very entertained, and it was probably not easy to sort of manage that amount of expectations still make something with some content to it. I just kind of have like a strategic. It's almost like I have a strategic Boehner for the marvel universe and game of thrones. Like, there's so many moving pieces and even when they fail. It's like, okay. I like, I still don't think kept a marvel is very good. But the fact that they're even to pull this off and they're able to get all of America like all the fucking world to care about. You know, the the these weirdoes that don't exist. It's. Fucking like, I just really liked the avengers dig dig dug. Should we actually do our challenge? Jones challenge this week challenge was Aleksis. Yeah. Was the challenge. It was to get and take care of a Thomas Gottschee and a Tom ago t- were very popular in the nineteen nineties. It's a little like key chain sized egg with an illu LED on it that displays a small it. It's kind of literal pocket monster on a screen, and you just need to feed it and clean up. Its poop all digitally, of course, otherwise it will die. And it was one of those things where kids got so obsessed with it. They were banned from school school and classrooms and stuff. Oh, yeah. And I was very very much into it, especially when they had Pika chew version, which was the original challenge. But it was like they were like two hundred dollars on EBay. Got different ones. Yes. So alex. Error, alex. And I got what's called Tamagotchi mini. And what's interesting about the mini is you don't do anything. Like. Oh, no. You don't play games with it game. Moten? All you do is you feed it bread or candy and the new clean up its poopie by pressing a button, and you put any whoa, that's different than my boy. And you put it to sleep at every night. It's like every night it gets into a little bed, and then you have to turn the lights off. And Veronica, and I have been have been kind of tag teaming it because we clean the poop. He's up yesterday left at home all day. Oh, so yours is a live. Oh, yeah. Okay. All right. Is it even possible for Tanabe alive? I thought yes. I thought that that meant that ours. Couldn't die because it was like Thomas Gachi light. But no mine died it was very upsetting. I took very good care of this little guy. But now, I still have a tombstone on my screen with a little new housing possible. The died. I I don't know. I was I mean, I did put it during game of thrones. I did put it in in my bedroom under like six blankets because you can't mute it. You cannot turn it off you want you want to keep a cosy. Yeah. Yes. Yes. Sorry. That's what I meant. To save it from the carnage. But yeah, I had mine lake during very I went a little too far. Like, I had my friend. I dropped it off on my at my friend's house before I went to go see veggies because you know, you can't take it needs to be fed like someone someone took that call from you and said, absolutely I I will care for your fiction leg. Not. Okay. That's that's that's a good friend, Alex. But but how did you kill it? I don't I I it was beeping a bunch, and I was on a call, and I just ignored it and suddenly pip a bit bit bit. Like a heartbeat because you not feed it, did you do a seems like some sort of cruel dungeon where you didn't feed. It poopie didn't clean poopie have Indica mud pie. The mud pie was too big. I guess any drought in. Oh, we I I wanna let you finish. But we got very different. Yeah. Now. What's yours Merlin? I think mine was I've got the the real starter. I guess so mine egg boy hatches he hatched here. She they hatch. Sure. Sure. Yeah. Ours. Hatch hatch mine. Okay. But so like when when it goes beep beep at me, I have the option of it can either feed it or play with it. And if you hit feed, the your options are soya sauce or tomato, and if you play with it it's a game where you figure out there's two eggs on screen. You say which way which has the boy in it, and that's pretty much it. And then sometimes it passes out diarrhea and shows you. Says as well you when it's my turn became a little me. Here's makes mud pie years make some mud pie. And then it lies down in the mud pie using a mud pie. It's a mud pie. Oh, you'll think that's explosive. Really? I would assume since good atomic that. It would just be like egg whites. Does does it. What comes out of finished? This called a final transformation. He kapika. Got here down there. The breast buds. What happened? What am I missing? Feeding soya sauce or you can feed it could feed it. So I saw sort tomato. And because that's what you feed an infant. And and then you can play with it. And if it gets happy five in road. That's come perfect. Oh, that's like if you're like the JT like you've gotten what's called a perfect season with your egg. And then and then it takes shit and shows you it's ass. Keep. Is you're still alive. We'll get to that. Okay. All right. Yeah. No. This was we we also like we we were trying to simonize our watches to start all eggnog at the same time Goo-good Ube, and as I stipulated in our Tex channel Madonna, and I were gonna be at the zoo. So I was on public transit. We're all trying to get our watches at the same time and make it start. But I did run into AM PM had the fix that one point. But I you know, I tried. I would hit the thing and give it a tomato because two meters making happy, according to the instruct. Yeah. I think it might be a I'm not complaining at all. I think mine was a pretty stripped down version of what you guys got. No, no. I. Had more features than ours. Remember misses a game aimed at like seven year old. I also remember when I've a very clear memory of one Tamagotchi, I came out, and for whatever reason in one of the only moments of my entire life. When I was a head of a trend or cool in any way, my mom was at shopping zany brainy, and she saw Micciche she literally saw them taking the Tamagotchis like out of the case zany brainy. And she was like what's that? And they were like this thing in Japan. And she was like I like you have to understand how like atypical. This was my childhood bo-. I mom just like spontaneously bought me, a toy and electronic toy and bought it. Brought it home. It was like Zanny brainy. They said this was cool. And it was like. Like this same story, but with Pokemon which also this also happened with Pok Mon just binds, cool Japanese, Dan, which I believe my mom, also got zany brainy. These are like this is like two of the moments of my life. My brother got blue and I got put red. And then she brought me Tamagotchi. And I remember I must have it was I tree school. I think I was in maybe second or third grade. And I was very very very attached to it. And I made my parents like, maybe they eventually banned it from my school. And I made my parents babysit for it, and my mom like put it in a desk drawer all day, and I was very upset and then eventually died, and I was inconsolable. Oh my God. A horrible woman. My dad, I think my dad made me like like a tombstone we made like a memorial for my Tamagotchi. Was it was a considered properly? Shinto? Did you do Shiva? No. I think after I was after my first one died. I put it in a drawer, and I never played with it. Again. That's understandable. That's PTSD. You know? Yeah. Take me take shit in her desk drawer 'cause that's what a horrible this. I I was pretty bored of at this time. I had fun with it for like five minutes. Pulling the plastic setting it up hatching the I enjoyed learning. I actually enjoyed like sure figuring out the interface and all the things that can do. And then I got really bored of it. And I just felt like it was this like incredibly tedious chore, but I also feel like I do feel weird affinity for it. Like, I certainly would not I would feel very bad. If I put it in a drawer, and I was just like, okay. Absolutely. Could not do that. Yeah. It's it's basically a mobile nuisance machine. But what is it? What is the? But there is an appeal about this. When I was a kid. What was it was so magical about this? Did you have a pet? Yeah. I think at that point. We had a dog. A kid my I mean, my thing was always I was trying to take care of digital or fake objects because I really wanted to dog, and we didn't have a dog until I was like sixteen and I guess you have a PowerPoint to persuade Thomas. I was at that point Merlin. Keynote was not out and I was too young to acquire PowerPoint. Don't okay, I just bugged them until they got me poke on that. It was it was less refined before I got into double digits in as you want. But you wanted something to care. Yeah. You know, that maternal instinct or. But I don't know. But then it was it was actually one of those things to where like once everybody got one it felt less cool. And then it was like, oh what score. Did you get on the game where I just wanted like a nice thing to feed and quietly? Enjoy like an and the same thing happened later with a Amman. And there was a DS game called Nintendo where the whole point of the game was just like you pet the dog with a stylus in that was the whole game. Yeah. If someone to shit in mine. Yeah. I I don't know what it is. Or why why was Neo pets such a thing? I don't know. I mean, it's fun. It's you know. I mean, you really gotta take yourself back in time. Because this feels obviously such a another era, but like, you know, it's nice to interact with things, you know, what I mean, it's being able to interact with things is interesting. Like when I was a kid when no wait hang on. Now. Now, what was your what was your semitic robot that you had max remember that was called? XL? He lives in the studio now. Yeah. Yeah. But like that run on eight tracks one that runs. Hey, cassette tapes. Yes, there was one. When I was a kid that ran on eight tracks and. But like, you know, it was just still amazing the video games of the time. And you got her stand. This is before the pocket quarterback came out and change the game back in the day. Like, it was pretty basic stuff. There was a video game called Merlin. A hand held video game was basically like Simon. But like even Simon like any of those games where you just replicate a pattern, it's fun to interact with things like do you? Remember when you first discovered rubber banding on your phone? It doesn't really you don't need to keep going twin twin toying towing. But I still do it for I still I still sit there, and I'm like, I don't know what else to do with my life. I just pulled his page down and watch it bounce like, it's just fun. It's fun to interact with I it doesn't have to be that emotional. It's just kind of fun. Also kids are stupid. I just realized a huge part of this is just loneliness. Okay. All right. It's a loneliness teaching. Different take on it. I think it's really appealing. I like the feeling of when you take your phone out of your pocket, and you're like, oh, there's a whole little world in here. Just for me waiting for me. Like, it's my own little private thing that I I know about and I when I'm feeling when I'm like in a crowd, and I feel really small or I'm like feel awkward, and I'm like in an elevator with people like there's this comfort of like I can take the phone retreat into the little world of in my phone where it's all about feeling a little bit alien. Yeah. Yeah. And it's like look like this is a this is a whole little world. That's just for me. And. Where I'm like the central character in it. And and I have control over it. And I think the temp temp dot obviously, we're like way before phones, but first of all it was like a small electronic thing to have in your pocket which like at that time. Like, I can't really I mean there were pagers, but that was very adult. But for a kid, what small electronic thing could you could you. It was Moran. It was so small it was miraculously small that was one of the appeals, right? There was it was this tiny electronic thing. That's that's that's such a digital when digital watches. I caught on and became like kinda Ford -able for a kid, and I just hit the little like what a remote. But like daytime daytime daytime like just like it would just be fun to like hit a button on a little wrist world. Yeah. It's a little it's a little miracle of this electron ick, tiny electric, that's very pleasing. But then having the Tamagotchi were, you know, all the controls and how to feed it. And what it's deal is like very. Still appeals to me like I still drawn to it. I think it's cool. I mean, I feel like a lot of these things for me are just sort of digital fidget toys like there was that game neck. Oh, which is you just take care of feral cats. That's the whole thing. And you watch them like, it's it's so I it's so. For the first time. I heard that coming from the other room. I got. Big big, boy, he's a big, Sean. Now, what did you guys name your Tamagotchi? Oh, gosh. I didn't know. That's permissible. You have to name it. Now compared a whole list of names. Oh, yeah. Bring. I had I don't think we did name it. But I'm happy to go through. Some of the SUV names. You're only make sure I have the most updated. Yeah. Here. It is. Okay. Here we go. So possible names for Tamagotchi. You've got this isn't notes is. Yeah. Yeah.

It was a bitter session by shouts epithets and continuing charges of racism and police terrorism. It's January nineteen Seventy-three. The city council calls a public forum on a topic that attracts so many angry Detroiters. They had to move it to the Ford auditorium. The issue stress the Detroit police departments undercover decoy unit. We've had for hearing on numerous occasions they ducked and they side stepped to go there with a little issue. Everybody on the Detroit common council needs to be put to that. He seventy taking edition on strength.

But the police Commissioner points out that crime is down and not everybody wants to get rid of the controversial police unit. John Nichols attempted to respond to the crowd at all. But he shouted down. That my intent to stand before you today to attempt to justify the logger rights of a police officer in affecting a they need no such justification. We are. Wasting part of that too. This meeting marks turning point and just a few months. Detroiters will have the chance to decide the fate of stress and of the entire city, you will act on this or you will not have a future and city government. This is election year seventy three we don't intend to let this pass without an attempt to change the life of the city. Last episode a crime lab technician took down notorious stress officer with the help of a few cat hairs today on the show lack people in Detroit have had enough. It's nineteen Seventy-three an election year, and they're backing a brash new candidate for mayor a mayor a leader, not a commanding officer the city needs UniteR, not a cutting edge.

To understand how stress became the central issue of the nineteen Seventy-three mayoral election. You need to meet a fifteen year old boy named Ricardo buck. He was kinda ONA quiet side. He was really handsome real big pretty is. This is all Myra Mattis. Ricardo. Buck was her nephew his friends called him. Buck so sparked five of them his best friends. They used to always come to my house, and they sing the temptations. Pretty good though. They did. Yeah. The Sunday sing. After fly like a bird in the size. Let's say. The dies would wear this like gabardine shirts down they wear naturals back there. So his was still wasn't a large natural. It was kind of short baby. Yeah, baby. Yeah. That's what it is a baby. Got a pitcher. Framed. This is less pitcher. Sounds terrible. But you don't know about teenagers. What they might do. Did they need some money? A why you know, you know, I don't know. All the neighbors knew us by name hustle together. And people knew from the outside you can't mess with him without missing the rest of Gino fortune was friends with Ricardo Bock one night. They had just finished playing basketball at the north end family center with another friend Craig Mitchell. We were all alone GM steps summertime. It was hot keys hanging out with s when I get comes staggering down Jonah. The guy had a gas cannon his hand would use. I think that is cards stop somewhere. We knew he had no Vincent the neighborhood period. So we look at it. He was trying to get direction. News wearing regular clothes, but he had a big shiny watch on. He had a gold chain on his neck. I'm thinking, you know, that he was asking for asking for one. I come and take stuff. In a we're just told into a minute. I resist talk him trying to get some, you know, see Wade coming from C was drunk. Oh, what you know? What were you saying to way you come from where you going away your car is you know, we were all in face had him surrounded more or less, but we didn't get a chance to take nothing from that get because he lunged at work. That's when all of us. Beat him down. I mean, who's just got thinki- is he just jumped on. But can we just talking, you know, and we kicked his ass. Men. He said police officer cut and police officer. We see no police 'cause we see these white guys jumping out wishes everywhere, you think you in a war some 'cause it was like Vietnam out there. But try to run. Seen him drought. Iran Becca towards the gym two steps in the sparks with ricocheting off the street. The numb hearing gunshots. Going by me thing by my era. So they were trying to get me to. And I'll see fire hopping up Griggs back in he field down beside the car in front of the chill. Everything happened. So fast. I was more scared. I I mean. Here. I'm that close to get in get to you know. I was the boss, you know, which means that usually my job would be the same job that father would have been Jamin Holloway was the director of the north and family center where the shooting happened over the years. He kept a close eye on Craig in buck creek and buck they will just missed kids to me, they wouldn't really bad kids. There was one of my specials. You know, why were they special because they always this wrong? The night of the shooting Holloway was at home when his phone rang when I got the call. Couldn't believe it a white man shot Craig and book crane buck. I couldn't picture that. What do you mean? You know? So we got whatever he was doing. Holloway drove to the center to find it surrounded by police tape. We get back. It was fifty police land. Locked in on that try to go to to Cray. And they will let me go over there. You know? I mean, they got mean, you know, not I'm trying to hold my motion quick not trying to go. See him. I'm like, what would you in? I kinda like a like lost it. Because I'm looking at you laying there. We didn't really find out to the next day that the police shot Craig in book, so we count I. What the police? Myra mathis. Ricardo bucks aunt says that no one from the police ever came to notify her family who does that. That's what you do you take a fifteen year old life? You don't even go to the family with no kind of explanation. They had cared. They would came to the house and says something my sister. Nobody never came. If felt like racist, you know, white make you'll another black with no concern. They didn't care. They didn't care. The undercover stress officer who shot Creggan buck. His name was Richard war back the kind of people out on those streets. They're brutal their violent, and if you've been a victim of a crime, you'll understand how little regard they have for you or your life, and they'll take it from you in a minute. If they can this audio is from an interview war back gave for a documentary called Detroit under stress, I knew that the only way to prevent crime was you have to attack. It you have to be proactive and you have to go after the bad guys. How can the white guy stand out in a predominantly black community, but still fit in? What if you're motorists? They ran outta gas care and gas can. That was my him. I'd walk with a gas can and hope you know, somebody would come around. And that's exactly what war back did that night in front of the north and family center. I was passing John are Belmont. And these two guys sitting up on a on a step, and they both run up on me and hit me with pole and pushing me down whereabout says Creggan buck attacked him with a steel pole from broken badminton racket. They took my watch right off of my hand. And they started to run and I drew my weapon, and I fired. Fired three shots sway fired three shots that way. And this guy went down. Went up to the guy. He was dead. And my watch was underneath his body. And I just happened to walk across the street. And look down by parked car. And there was the second. He was dead. It's always easy to just blame it on the police when the police are interjecting themselves into the middle of a violent situation. It wasn't until a couple days later, I found out that they were actually juveniles but police officers. The have every right to protect themselves. Was called to proclaim his state of emergency. In Detroit was organized in protest against a special Detroit. Police unit called stress black leaders say the killings amount into execution without trial. That we now. We woman. Several days after officer war back killed Ricardo buck and Craig Mitchell community leaders called for a March on my remapping and the rest of bucks family were front and center we walked down. We wanna five nine it was so many people behind us. It was beautiful just note we had support to bother stress. Abolishing stress wasn't going to be easy. It would be another year before police Commissioner John Nichols was shouted down by that angry crowd at the Ford auditorium. Not long after that city council for them Commissioner Nichols. The mastermind behind stress said his is on a higher office city hall. Campaign is pitted. A law and order candidate against the state senators seeking to become the auto city's first black mayor nickels opponent was a man named Coleman. Young used to organize and made more responsive to the citizens out in a mate stresses. Roll my first moves about police Commissioner Nichols. Well, I think the Commissioner who is responsible for stress responsible for the brave attitude of the police department or many of our citizens has got to go. Commissioner sender. Coleman young today announced that he's a candidate. And he said if elected the first thing he'd do is fire you as Commissioner Steph. I don't think either one of them as a total surprise you.

Fifty four year old police Commissioner who was known as a tough cop. And he stretches crime control his running against Coleman. Young fifty five year old state Senator who has a reputation as a militant fighter for the black carbs. Mayoral candidate Coleman young had cut his teeth as a union organizer in the auto plants here. He is in nineteen fifty two testifying before the house on American activities committee during the red scare you've told us that you were the executive secretary of the national negro, congress that would've negro nigga. I think you're mistaken, hopefully, more Philly. Argument m my Ajit word negro. Larry mention of learn the name of my rape. In the sixties black people in Detroit elected Coleman to three terms as state Senator. And now he was running for mayor. He was Coleman. He said forty head to see and he learned in industry it's early on and continue to do this journalists remark Tyson. He covered the nineteen Seventy-three election for the Detroit Free Press favorite words motherfucker. A mother fucker. He used to come on swear words, and so forth to get his point across a lot. Well that. You think you are coming here? Me. Voters know that Coleman Young's blackness in a city half. Black is what this race is all about optimist view is that young as mayor would help raise the social and economic status of Detroit's blacks and strengthened the peaceful coexistence the city needs to save it self the pessimistic view that as mayor young would give Detroit away to blacks. Understood. On a street that this election, nineteen seventy three election would be a watershed election. Richard McKnight was John Nichols campaign coordinator, and as he remembers that race was key to the nineteen Seventy-three election. The number of voters was decreasing. There was very likely that this was the last election that the white people would control so in the van so what what was your strep? Campaign to produce his many white votes. So Coleman needed to produce as many black votes as possible. And he knew just where to start. We were holding a political rally for him. He walked in through the door. And you know, it was decide mayhem. This is between a Chapman. And the first time. She saw Coleman young speak was at her church. He walked into you know, shaking people's hands most politicians do, but it was this something a little different. New people in audience, you know, in his his motions were very much like most black men in the community. You know, he didn't just go, you know, shake a hand. Hey, and he would call them by name. And he seemed like he was one of us. And he walked down the middle out onto the pool pill. Countdown in what is probably moved important election. The people have faith in many years. I've done across this city. My father occasions off period. He was so his. A good looking brother, you know, and he cared himself. Like, a black man who was cool who loved us people more than anything. I have been presenting it program to all the people Detroit. I recognized all the city Detroit is in deep trouble. We revert. The whole relation the trend toward economic deterioration that presently I. There was your four year clapping the music African American choir that was very good dead on it. So all of that mix. Together, we were energized to make change. And short period of time. We were, you know, passing our levers talking to people cited about home young Tautou to of different people black and white. There was still some white people in area, but mostly we talked to black people who were supportive. It was very well organized. We felt we wanna win. On the eve of election day. Both candidates went on television to make one last appeal to voters think first thing you do is to continue the aggressive fight against crime that that I began as police Commissioner, I think took the Paul of crime rise businesses out of the city. I think fear of crime in the neighborhood forces are citizens to move out to the suburbs. Basic problems, you know, of an economic nature of crime, and all the problems are spend all all I've been can be traced to the basic polarization. That is Dr urban America, Detroit goes down the drain black and white go down to drain together. You can't tell the difference between black and white and sewer polarized us. It is Detroit has lost much of its tax base and bunch of its appeal tomorrow, the voters must decide which candidate can help blacks better themselves and at the same time convince whites to stay. November sixth nineteen Seventy-three election day polls over. Polls open this morning. Contest was expected to be a close one last-minute opinion. Polls showed a large group of voters still undecided. Reporters caught the candidates as they left. Their polling stations for the best man Saudi feels more nervous. Do you feel confident? I'm looking forward to a massive expression on the part of people city both black and white that it's time to turn back some polarization division to get together to rebuild the city. Late that night Coleman young stepped onto a stage at the Detroit Hilton. Presentative own. We are fifteen thousand. I'm not mad at anybody. In writing. For everybody. Meyer Mathis Ricardo bucks on had been waiting for this day deadly fight. He was so glad he got an office because we knew that he was real distress. So have the community center director Benjamin Holloway. That he was in because leave that he was going to do what he's saying. Faithfully discharge do these of the office of mayor the city of Detroit to the best of the euro. So you. I do. The newest titan in Detroit generated by the promise and hope of the new mayor Coleman young as the city's first black chief executive elected narrow margin. As Coleman settled into city hall. He sent a clear message to his constituents. There's a new mayor in town. My campaign that stress would be eliminated. I say that now stress will go in acronym relieving stress goal any stress for in a decoy operation will go. This is real. Coleman young had taken on the cop in one. But now the city was facing another problem the criminals those bag on table just like sugar flow. She knows. That's next week on crime town.

That's P. L. A. N. E. T. M. Dot Com strange strange goings on this week in a crucial obscure market. I'm David Brancaccio deep in the second sub basement of the financial system a big financial market. It went haywire this week to the point that the Federal Reserve yesterday had to move seventy five billion dollars in to smooth out what is called the repo market. It's not about a report poke crew coming to repossess your car repos or a massive market for overnight loans. When that market went out of whack on Monday the Fed even found it tough to keep its main interest rate from. I'm drifting off SPEC. It is a teachable moment. Let's turn to Karen Petro managing partner of Federal Financial Analytics Good Morning Morning David. What did you park some money. The essentially overnight through these things exactly what you do the entire global banking and brokerage system uses repose for for overnight funding and what it is is essentially like a collateralized overnight loan and the companies use these to keep themselves afloat float show. If at any point the overnight lending market stops going or even just pulls back a bit companies have a tough time knowing where their money is. GonNa come from and indeed coming into this week. That market got out of wack there. Is this what surgeon demand do. I have that right for these things. There was an surgeon surge in demand because all of a sudden the cash that people needed to us with which to fund their repose became suddenly Unleash Short there were a number of factors corporate dividend payments a settlement due date for the huge issuance of treasury obligations coming due and all of a sudden it became harder and harder to find what's called the quickie in the overnight repo market and so so the reason rates went up that borrowers desperately needed to find somebody to extend them an overnight loan. Is this a sign. This is is an early scene in a financial horror movie. This is the early cracks of something big. I don't think so but there were some day in day out factors the bond payments that huge numbers of treasury bills being issued for which the markets had to pay its several other factors going on the question remains. Why was there such liquidity scarcity. I think one reason here is the post-crisis crisis rules for banks. One of the ways we made bank safer is we said they couldn't be playing in this market the way they used to but when you take banks six out of a complicated market like this there is a lot less liquidity in it and we found that out the hard way earlier this week. Karen and Petro at federal financial analytics always good to talk to you. Thank you thank you David now. The Federal Reserve has other fish to fry today in just just about seven hours. It will finish up. It's meeting and let everyone know if it will lower interest rates why perhaps one quarter of one percent ahead of that decision. SNP futures insurers are down two tenths percent.

There's no quota on the number of Detroit residents. Fiat Chrysler needs to hire to keep its incentives but to get a good return on its investment. The city is trying to help detroiters get as many of the jobs possible take. Fiat Chrysler has agreed to let the city recruit and prescreened applicants by hosting job fairs like like this one on the agenda for these potential applicants math.

Detroit Finds Strength In Community; European Countries And Unemployment

"From NPR and WBZ. I'm Tanya Moseley. I'm Jeremy Hobson. It's here and now more grim unemployment numbers today. Another four point. Four million people filed for unemployment last week bringing the total jobless claims over the past five weeks to more than twenty six million people later today. The House of Representatives is expected to pass a second round of economic relief for small and medium sized businesses to maintain payrolls during the crisis. Joining us now is NPR congressional reporter. Cloudy chrysalis cloudy before we get to this package We're we're getting word of how corona virus is affecting members of Congress. Elizabeth. Warren Has said that her older brother died of Cova nineteen and now more news from congresswoman maxine. Waters today right right. That was an earth shattering moment on the House floor were. Maxine waters addressed the condition of her sister who has corona virus in. It sounds like it's very serious. So it just shows how personally touched these lawmakers are during this pandemic will end today There on the House floor because the house is trying to pass more money for small and medium-sized business. Who is going to get money under this? Nearly five hundred billion dollar bill. There's been so much controversy about big businesses getting money from the last round. Yes so the focus of this bill was to supplement and earlier corona virus relief. Bill that was passed last month. This was a two trillion dollar bill. They had a small business. Loan program turned out to be very popular so popular. They ran out of money within a matter of days. And now they're going to replenish that with about three hundred billion dollars. The hope is this time they will be able to direct that money towards actual small businesses. We're not going to hear about these major hotels or major food retailers. Getting the money and they've installed some provisions in the bill that they say they hope to see that money more directed to these smaller businesses. This time around and house. Democrats are proposing a special oversight committee to keep track of all this money. But here's what Arizona Republican Congresswoman Debbie. Lesko said about that idea since the beginning of twenty nineteen. I've served on three committees including Judiciary Committee and in every single committee. The entire goal has been nonstop to criticize President Trump and tried to influence the twenty twenty election so given that position. What kind of oversight is there going to be cloudy so there are multiple layers of oversight in the previous bills? They've included efforts for inspector general's to oversee how this money is spent a special panel of appointees made by lawmakers to oversee how this money is spent. That's still coming together. And then today there's been debate about creating yet another committee to oversee with these funds What will happen with these funds and how they are spent so there are several layers? Also there's the standing committees for Congress such as Oversight Committees. That will also have a hand in looking into how this money is spent now as lawmakers gather for this vote. How does that work are? They socially distanced from each other. Yes so this is a very different look than when they gathered more than a month ago. March fourteenth. They did voice vote and they did socially distance this time around. They're doing a roll call vote so they're breaking down all the lawmakers into alphabetical order into different groups nine groups for each vote. There's two votes today and they'll be able to vote over ten minute period. Or what have you? But basically it's turned this day into an all day affair to get these two votes through whereas maybe previously they could have done it in a couple of hours. People are wearing masks. You're seeing all sorts of changes so people can social distance in a new way on that floor. Npr Congressional reporter cloudy Gris. Alice thank you. Thanks for having me. Well as the number of jobless Americans continues to rise president trump has been pushing for the US to reopen. He's even tweeted out the liberate slogan echoing rhetoric of protesters who want to restart state economies. But yesterday he said Georgia Governor Brian. Kit had taken reopening a step too far in his decision to allow Georgia businesses. Like hair salons and bowling alleys to begin operating again under social distancing rules. I told the governor of Georgia Brian. Kemp that I disagree strongly with his decision to open certain facilities which are in violation of the phase one guidelines. We're joined now by Steven Fowler reporter at Georgia Public Broadcasting and Stephen Georgia is supposed to start reopening tomorrow and Monday. We've been hearing pushback from mayors for weeks now. The president himself any chance that this will affect Kemp's decision making well you know Tanya it's been a bit of whiplash here in Georgia over the last couple of days you know. The president unveiled his guidelines for some states to reopen pushing for states reopen early governor. Brian Kemp made this announcement that he was following. Those guidelines and having some businesses return to a semblance of normal operations. And now you have the president of backing out on that and saying that Governor. Kemp's decision was too much too soon and that he didn't recommend it now. President trump also did say that it is up to governor Brian Kemp. And that's a message that the governor is taking heart. He has no indication that he is going to back out of. This decision says that he's going to keep going even as the president really threw him under the bus at the briefing yesterday. So governor can't pass said that this decision is driven by data and public health officials at the state level. Meanwhile the top federal public health official managing this crisis. Doctor Dr Anthony. Fauci has warned kept to be careful. What does your reporting say about the data and whether Georgia really is ready to reopen the door to Department of Public Health has been putting out daily updates at noon and seven. Pm each day and they've been adding cases now. The raw number of cases continues to go up but the Department of public health goes back and codes that for the respective day that somebody was diagnosed with a case where somebody died so they're reporting says that the number of cases in Georgia has gone down for about seven days. Now the White House says it should be fourteen days before things open up so even with the state's data. Georgia is not ready to reopen but governor. Kemp says that it's incremental steps that he's taking that these businesses are going from completely close to what's known as minimum basic operations which is about two dozen different health and safety and social distancing policies. This doesn't mean that everyone's going to be able to go get haircuts starting tomorrow but it does mean that these businesses can start to get back to normal. Let's Georgia public broadcasting reporter Steven Fowler. Thank you so much. Well we've been checking in on corona virus cases around the world right now. We want to go to Turkey. Where the number of confirmed cases is nearing one hundred thousand and the death toll is over two thousand. Turkey's Health Minister says the pandemic is under control but critics have their doubts. Npr's Peter Kenyon joins us from Istanbul. And Peter What is lifelike there right now well it is a beautiful spring day The weather's gorgeous and everybody stuck inside is basically the story The city is so quiet. you're hearing birds that you never knew existed before the there's a pot of dolphins out in the Bosphorus I saw them this morning They were easy to spot by the cloud of Gulls hovering over them and people say they return is because of the lack of noisy ship. Engines moving through the Strait is just much quieter. Few tankers here and there but nothing like the usual marine traffic. The roads are also quiet so basically assemble is quite a peaceful place. We've been hearing about those large number of cases there. What is Turkey doing to combat and contain the corona virus and covert nineteen while Turkey imposed a curfew on the bulk of its population for the past two weekends? And that has now been expanded to four days. There's a six foot. Social distancing rule and the interior ministry says more than three thousand people have been cited for violating. That schools are closed. Large GATHERINGS CANCELLED NON. Essential businesses are shut. Now there's a key period coming up. The Holy Month of Ramadan to health minister says it's crucial that this not be seen as an excuse to relax the social distancing or other measures. It's often time for large family gatherings not this year are folks feeling confidence in the government and the actions that they're taking that you mentioned. Well there are critics who argue. Turkey's still trying too hard to keep the economy going and the absence of a full twenty. Four seven lockdown could be putting lives at risk. The high tally of new cases is worrying too many but on the other hand the death rate in. Turkey remains relatively low less than half the rate of Iran. Next door for for example there is also criticism about the reliability of the official figures and a lot of that is due testing. Some seven hundred fifty thousand tests have been carried out so far but you know in a country with eighty one million people that can still come in for criticism. I WanNa ask you about something else so elsewhere. Their concerns at the ruling party's may be using this pandemic to consolidate power and weaken their rivals. We talked about this actually In regards to Poland yesterday is that an issue in Turkey. It's certainly a big concern among the opposition parties here They are arguing. That president type area to one and his ruling party have basically spent a decade in the half accumulating expanding their political power at the expense of the opposition in a recent speech in response to want accuses the opposition of putting on what he calls a political show instead of helping to fight the pandemic. Now obviously as the virus spreads more and more people are turning to the government for help so the question may arise of some kind of public judgment of how well the government response to this crisis. That really probably won't be clear until twenty twenty three when the next presidential elections you'd due to be held that's NPR's Peter. Kenyon speaking with us from Istanbul.

Thirty first twenty twenty. The Corona virus pandemic has forced most of us into social isolation but for veterans with mental health issues. Staying at home runs counter to the advice. Doctors have been giving them to get out and interact with the World Jennifer Brooklyn from member station W. UNC reports veterans with PTSD have range of treatment options including medication and therapy but mental health professionals also encouraged coping behaviors like getting out into nature being physically active and spending time with Positive People Marine Corps veteran Ryan Doma Hernandez says he struggles with mental health issues including PTSD and substance abuse but he recently joined a group called a Reverend Warriors that brings veterans together for hikes and hangouts get out of ourselves to give us some camaraderie they give us that unit feeling of Brotherhood that we've been missing So I have a band of brothers now. Something were to happen. I can call on forty people and say hey man. I'm going through this. What can we do? Let's get up and let's go get coffee but things are different now. They can't meet up for coffee or for family picnics or happy hours and their signature hikes. Well they can get massive with up to three hundred people packed together on the trails so there on hold for now too. Don't mckernan says he's worried about the toll that social distancing will take on him and his new friends. I think we definitely need human interaction in our lives and being in the state that we are right now. I think a lot of people. You're gonNA find a lot. A lot of people's mental health is GONNA come out definitely. There's going to be a lot of people depressed. There's GonNa be a lot of people that need social interaction in her life without them. Having that it's going to go back to being alone feeling alone and and that's not really a good place to be high cleaner. Jeremy Walton says the longer group members have to keep their distance the more veterans who relied on in person social interaction could backslide August say. Is that this thing is put a big hole in a lot of our a lot of chess because we use this time to get together as a way to heal and that takes us a step back being forced to not do anything David Benedict Chair of psychiatry. At the Department of Defense's Medical School in Bethesda Maryland confirms that loneliness can indeed exacerbate some mental health conditions. He says some veterans are at especially high risk for regression older veterans. Those who were already isolated those with functional limitations and vets who experienced trauma. There's a study that showed that loneliness contributes to the development of depression which continued towards a. You know a downward spiral. But he says being socially distant doesn't have to mean feeling lonely Terry to neely and a behavioral scientist and an expert on military and veteran health with the Rand Corporation agrees. She says there's mounting evidence to suggest that using technology to replace in person interaction can be just as effective. I've seen some new research that shows that online virtual Structured support engagements through online communities are also Showing positive impacts in Helping people feel more connected so I think the evidence is growing and it is Showing that those virtual opportunities can be just as impactful important for members of the Reverend Warriors though. Virtual hike just couldn't deliver the real thing. Does they need the proximity to feel the camaraderie. So Walton says although they've canceled activities through mid may they're thinking of other ways to get together still in person? If you really want to get out of the House we'll have a barbecue with guns out. Back will literally stagger you. Every fifteen minutes. We'll give you a fresh pair of clothes or you bring a fresh pair of clothes and we will hang out. These veterans. Don't want to take chances with their health. They say they'll be smart about their contact. But Walton says for them. Getting together isn't a choice. It would be too unhealthy not to for here. Now I'm Jennifer Brooklyn if you've been having strange dreams lately and trouble sleeping. You're not alone. The stress caused by corona virus. Sending hold up at home or probably to blame joining us now to talk about that is Matthew Walker professor of neuroscience at UC Berkeley. An author of the book. Why WE SLEEP MATTHEW WELCOME? Thanks for having me well. Let's start with dreams? Why is this time that we are all in affecting our dreams so much people are reporting really crazy weird vivid dreams Fussy? I think what's happening. Is that people are starting to shift the sleep schedule so the starting to sleep a little bit later on if they don't have to commute all get the kids to school. It gives them a change in the schedule. And what we know. Is that your dream? Sleep is not evenly distributed across the night the late into the morning that we sleep the more ram sleep which is Dream Sleep. We actually have sued adversely. I think that shift may actually explain why people are overall experiencing motoring. That may be why dreaming more. Why are we having these specific sort of pandemic dreams? Well we know that dream. Sleep rapid eye movement sleep sleep essentially provides the brain of form of overnight therapy that dreaming helps process difficult emotional experiences and we can think of that dream. Sleep like nocturnal soothing. Balm takes the sharp edges of the emotional concerns and experiences that were having whilst were awake so I think dreaming may actually be a response to try and help us process this emotional difficulty that we're all going through now. Dreaming Assumes that you're able to actually sleep and sleep through the night and a lot of people are having problems doing that right now. I can say from personal experience. I've been going to bed around a normal time but then I end up waking up at one or two or three o'clock in the morning for good half an hour before I could go back to bed. Your this is something else that we we know is very common. That anxiety is a trigger of bad sleep. In fact I think it was the the British writer Charlotte Bronte. She had a lovely phrase. She said ruffled mind makes for a restless pillow. We know that people who have high levels of anxiety or stress during the day have a higher likelihood of having difficulty the falling asleep or staying asleep. And when you wake up in the middle of the night typically we have this sort of rolodex of anxiety that starts to flip back into your mind and we start to ruminate or catastrophes. Unfortunately we know that it's a two way street as well that if you're not getting sufficiently good quality sleep you're more likely to feel anxious the next day and it develops this vicious cycle. Why is it that anxiety prevents us from sleeping? Oh makes it more difficult? There's probably a number of reasons but chief among them is that when we all anxious we shift over more towards the fight or flight branch of the nervous system and normally it's that type of nervous system activity that quiets down as we're getting ready to go to sleep and we go into sleep but if that activity of the nervous system is too high. Then we're not going to be able to fall asleep Beasley and certainly not stay asleep while will and I'm sure that I'm making the wrong decision. Every time when I'm awake in the middle of the night I pick up my phone and start reading the news which is probably the source of my anxiety in the first place yeah. I think that's one of those things that we can consider. What under your control right now. And hokey you perhaps stay away from things that are going to prevent you from sleeping well and could it be that one tries to limit themselves to morning and late afternoon checking of what's going on with. Kofi virus if people feel as though it's triggering them and making them Not Sleep soundly at night. Certainly when you wake up in the middle of the night the advices don't stay in bed You should normally get out of bed. After about twenty or twenty five minutes go to something else in. White. Just read a book. Don't check your phone and then only returned to bed when you are sleepy. So for example. You'd never sit at the dinner table waiting to get hungry. So why would you lie in bed waiting to get sleepy? Why do we remember some of our dreams and not others and in this case in particular? I feel like there have been a number of dreams I and many others. I can remember very vividly in the morning. Probably at least two reasons that increase the likelihood that someone will remember that dreams. The first is that during that dream process itself. If you wake up many of us will wake up at the end of these REMM sleep dream periods if you wake up for a little bit of time and then go back to sleep that seems to increase the likelihood that in the morning or during the day you will have recollection of that dream itself. The other is how vivid was it. In how emotional was it? The higher those two things are typically. The more likely it is that you're going to remember them. How are your sleeping dreams going now? I'm well I am trying to stick to a set of things that normally I describe to a lot of people for best asleep and for the most part. I'm okay. I'm not some post child for great sleep. I've had my struggles with insomnia in my past. Just because I know about sleep doesn't mean I always get good sleep but I am trying his best like Henry now. Firstly the key thing is regularity tried to go to bed at the same time and wake up at the same time. It doesn't have to be the typical time that you would use to go to work You can play in find your natural rhythm but once you have it stick to it. The second is try to avoid having a nightcap. In the evening many people turned to alcohol as a sleep aid. Unfortunately it's a sedative and sedation is not sleep. Alcohol will actually make you wake up throughout the night and it will also block that dream sleep that so critical for mental health and the final two things. I typically try to do. The first is that I remove old clock faces from my bedroom. And I don't Chang the phone. It's in a different room Because even if you struggling with sleep knowing that it's three twenty five. Am or four forty five am in the morning. It's not going to help you at that moment. It's only to make matters worse. The final thing I tried to do is usually take a hot bath before bed. It's not just because it relaxes you. But when you get out of the bath your core body temperature plummets and in fact we know that you need to drop your body temperature to fall asleep and get good deep. Sleep very good advice. Matthew Walker professor of neuroscience at UC Berkeley and author of the book. Why WE SLEEP MATTHEW. Thank you so much for joining us. Thanks very much sleep well. Another four point four million. Us workers filed for unemployment benefits last week. Bringing the total to twenty six million but Europe is in sing anywhere near as many job losses even though it's economy has also collapsed. Npr's Jim Zarrella explains on April Eighth. Ridha mayor found out. He was getting furloughed from his job. At video streaming service in London. There's no work in my specific industry right now anyway. Everything's on hold. But when I talked to Him. A few days later mayor sounded remarkably. Blase about not working. I work a couple hours later. That are normally would. I won't lie of good. A remote personal training like fitness session. In about twenty minutes mayor can rest easy because Britain handles unemployment much differently than the United States economists. Gabriel's up men of UC. Berkley says in the US. When the economy turns sour workers often get fired. They get unemployment benefits but they have to look for a new job and Sukman says the experience is brutal. An employment ease anxiety inducing. There's no guarantee that they will find their job back when the crisis is over when a crisis hits in much of Europe workers stay on the payroll. The government pays much of their salaries though. The systems vary from country to country. Zortman says this way is more humane and much less. Disruptive for businesses Alexander Cranky runs a software company near Duesseldorf. His business has fallen off a cliff but the German government is paying many of his one hundred thirty workers to stay home when the economy recovers. He can simply call them back to work. That basically means we we will survive and we will be able to keep the workforce on board so that's pretty powerful tool actually for us in the United States. Congress did recently adopt a version of this system called the PAYCHECK Protection Program. Small companies get loans but the debt is forgiven. If they don't lay anyone off conservative. Republican Senator Josh. Holly of Missouri has proposed a much broader program companies. All kinds of companies would get money to keep their workers on staff. He says this is an emergency and people's livelihoods are on the line he spoke on Komo X. Radio wouldn't it be better to keep people's jobs give them that security and ready to work again when we opened. Us economy backup. Holly says yes. Such a program would be expensive. But the government's already putting out piles of money anyway through unemployment insurance there are skeptics among them. Jason Furman former Obama economic adviser firm in says programs like these end up throwing money at companies. That don't need it. They probably would survive the pandemic. Anyway I think a lot of it is a windfall to their owners firm and says if the current downturn lasts a lot of businesses are going to fail and not even rich companies like Germany can prop them up forever handing the money simply pushes back the day of reckoning for them if a couple months from now the business can't come back it doesn't have enough demand doesn't have people coming in as soon as the subsidies end they're gonNA fire those workers but firm and says if the downturn lasts just a couple of months and the economic damages limited the European model probably makes some sense if nothing else it would freeze the job market in place until companies. Get a little more clarity about what lies ahead and it would do so with a lot less pain for their workers. Jim Zarroli. Npr News by now most of us have been impacted by covert nineteen in some way. We know someone who has it had it or died from it like many of you. Dread that each day will bring news of another person. I know who is sick or is passed away. My Hometown of Detroit is a hot spot. Where more than eight thousand confirmed cases have been totaled and more than seven hundred and forty deaths reported in the city? It's an overwhelming process for us to imagine so much loss. I am joined now by candice. Fortman a fellow detroiter and chief of engagement and operations at outlier media. Who like me is just trying to make sense of it? All welcome thank you so can't as one thing about Detroit. It's a major city but it feels like a town. It's a place where there's truly six degrees of separation. I feel it all the way here in California and I bet you can really feel it now more than ever during this pandemic absolutely I always say that Detroit is like living in a small southern town in so many ways you can think the legacy of GM in four bringing so many people here from the south and in that way our communities are so interconnected and while it is a massive city and actual spacing. Everyone knows everybody somehow through church through schools through social clubs the working at the plant together we become a family and a very real sense. And so we're right now watching our family suffer and that is the entire city right now. Yeah I'm hearing about longtime elders of my childhood church past childhood. Neighbors old friends are now sick. is actually a lot for me to process especially being so far away from home. And you're in the thick of it. All how are you coping I'm very fortunate I think in one way that I feel. I'm really grateful to be able to work. That actually helps to inform people and as much as we can right now. Help to keep them safe. So I find a lot of solace and being able to do that You know reaching out to friends. Daily is helpful. But I'll be really transparent when I tell you that at some point every day. I don't know how I'm going to cope in that second Every day has brought news about someone that I know or someone that I don't know but feels like we're losing fabric and pieces of our city threads are being torn apart from us and each one of those deaths. Every time I watched that number tick up every day feels personal and it's I'll tell you some days are some moments harder than others. But I'm so sorry I know talk to my friends all the time that are not here and I know that being here is hard but not being here is harder because you have family here you have here and even though we can't touch each other there is something I'll tell you about looking out and seeing my neighbors houses being able to drive down ninety six being able to drive down schoolcraft to be able to look in on people just see their houses that comforts me and so I send you so much love because I know that that is difficult. I saw your post about the death of Schuyler Herbert. She was five years old. The First Michigan Child to pass away from covert nineteen yea Schuyler happens to be the friend of my niece and yesterday her dad. My Niece's Dad Sydney a ton of pictures of the two of them together and I. I knew that I would be talking to you today. So I asked him to share with me what he loved about And he said she was the kind of little girl that when she saw you she would up to you so fast and so hard she would always knock you over. Because she didn't know any strangers. She loved everybody and that her joy was contagious and The idea that he would have to at some point explained to his daughter. That friend was gone with heartbreaking. They had been exchanging voice messages at home their parents. Of course we're doing it while Schuyler was In the hospital and those messages are going to not come and Schuyler is difficult but are the mini elders that we are losing elders. Hold for you the wisdom and the spirit and the soul of your city and we are losing them every single day and that means that when we come on the other side of this. We're going to be different. You know you mentioned. The fabric of the city is being torn apart and it made me think about. When I moved away from home for college I had a friend who would joke with me. That every other word from me was Detroit and I would always joke and say it's the spirit of Detroit in me and so when we'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT DETROIT. Making a comeback for decades now truly in the last five years after the city filed for bankruptcy. We were actually singing that comeback. We were actually seeing it in the city rebuilding and a significant number of those who have died. Were part of that rebuilding. I'm it just shows the viciousness of this virus. But can you talk about the impact on the city? Do you feel idea It's a setback. It is certainly a financial setback but because people matter more than money the loss of human beings the loss of creativity of creative minds of business minds of people who thought deeply about equity and how we could not just be a city. That's on the comeback for some but a city that is a comeback city for all how we could be a new model for how you grow a city with all of your residents at the forefront a lot of the folks who were instrumental and thinking. I think of someone like Marlowe Stoudamire and tell us who marlow is. Marlow was a home at like a quintessential. Detroit character to He was a the kind of person that people call in when they wanted to connect in a real way to detroiters. He was a consultant For many organizations including the innate jail And he talked about diversity and engagement In a way that was authentic to detroiters and he knew almost everybody almost everybody knew him and he spent his time and talents Helping this city be a better place and not just for the folks with the most money but for folks that like the people he grew up with like the people I grew up with that are often ignored when we talk about. How do you develop and grow a city He lost his battle with Kovic. Very early. In What feels like a lifetime now in this month and a half shutdown When you look at the amount of people who have honored him across the world right you can see his impact. It was bigger than Detroit. He brought Detroit everywhere he went. And I think that's the best part about detroiters right no matter where we go. Detroit with us and we bring it with us because we're proud of this place this place. There's so many people find no value in we know is more valuable than gold Is that what's GONNA BE? What keeps US moving? What keeps Detroit moving and keeps detroiters going. I mean what's your message Really to to fellow detroiters who are also morning right now so the other day my friends and I like many friends across the country. Were watching the baby face in Teddy Riley battle on instagram and in the Middle. I was watching on soon with a bunch of friends here in the city and we of course we're not together but there we all were and at some point. Somebody started ballroom dancing. Which for those of you. Who Don't know ballroom hustling in. This city is is almost a religion. It happens a lot and to see that like this moment like no matter what is happening. We're still our culture is here. We're still together right. We are in our separate homes but I feel them. I feel their sadness. I feel their losses. I also feel their hope and their joy for the future. We might not be able to hug. We might not be able to stay next to each other but like we always have in the city. We are in this together. Nothing stops Detroit when we say that we it. That's Candice Fortman DETROITER chief of engagement and operations at outlier media candice. I'm sitting you a big hug and thank you so much. Thank you so much. I really do appreciate it when you when she you win. And not once again and when someday the World Health Organization said this week that it's likely the new corona virus originated in animals not in a lab that announcement came after president. Trump was asked last week about a theory that scientists dispute that the virus was accidentally released from a lab and hon into whether the virus escaped from this lab and how activists that added a lot of people are looking at. It seems to make sense. They talk about a certain kind of bat but that that was it in that area. Us intelligence agencies have also said the virus most likely spread naturally was not from a lab. Adam Taylor of the Washington Post joins US now at. Let's talk first about this theory of this lab and Wuhan It does research corona viruses. Why do scientists though say it is unlikely? The virus originated there. So the reason this snap is sort of come. The focus of attention was that it was research being done that on background viruses. That's kind of reservoir of viruses as different viruses numb so researchers wanted. Look at them and see what they can find out about these arses. What has sort of emerged gradually kind of changed a bit of the few months you had in January people to have this lab any sort of the fringe. Ferry was set him. Some sort of bio weapon man made man will to that has since emerged to be clearly very unlike just from looking at the virus genome but what people are saying now is perhaps could have been some a leaked during the non bio weapon research regular legitimate research from Ma Virology viral just by chemists and I think everyone agrees. It's vague possibility. The idea that it could of leaked Likeability is that it came from bats probably went through a animal and then infect humans does not rude that any evidence to disagree with that at this point. But there's still a lot of people who believe that this virus came out of a lab. You write that. A recent Pew poll showed that almost three in ten Americans believe the virus could have been made in a lab. Republicans are twice as likely to believe these theories compared with Democrats. Were these theories circulating. Where is this coming from? And like I said it's kind of being this kind of started so of infringed series in January saw. Maybe I'm I think. Daily Mail and Washington Times published some stories about bio weapons since that in pretty clearly refuted since. Then it's kind of evolved into this You saw Senator Tom. Cotton of people talking about the idea leaked from lab. You don't see many scientists talking about this is one thing I wanted to make clear. It is mostly coming from politicians Even people who are very skeptical of the Chinese government or people who are maybe a bit more conspiratorial in the way of thinking. I think in a way. It's kind of natural. Look for both of clean. Cut onto the Vices but at the same time kind of It's the simplest answer is actually that it's came from bachelor jump for humans in nature and in terms of scientists trying to trace that that that this originated in animals and moved from animal to animal to human to human. How close are we to being certain that that's what happened? My sense is that it might take a pretty long time. When the viruses genome was sort of identified and Pony Internet's ironically the lab at the central conspiracy theorists these Wuhan Institute of Virology. They look through all kinds of different corner viruses and they said this is ninety. Six percent similar to a grown Avars we found in a horseshoe bats in a cave in union. This is actually ended up. Adding to conspiracies Trump on Noticed United Snow very close to obey the idea that it could have been taken as part of some research. Projects that has spread widely before difference is quite substantial and move Thinks like it's still pretty likely. There's no evidence that it wouldn't have just been spreading throughout nature be of excels virus the big outbreak of two thousand. Three thousand four dad was also linked to a horseshoe bats in a cave in union. They didn't find out from within the decade Latoya. And it's this is researched. It takes a long time. Is Part of the issue in terms of the skepticism about where this came from that China was not originally very forthcoming about the virus. Did that create some suspicion that allowed people to take these theories as far as they have? I probably true particularly in January February. You did see a lot of stuff on the Chinese Internet style. Talk about how it could have been linked to us by weapons programs and later on you. So actually the Chinese Foreign Ministry officials saying that you know we don't notice. Virus originated in China and that really unsupported by science and if the likelihood that a it was released from a lab is small. This is even Tomorrow's so I mean I think there's definitely a lot of distrust and the Chinese government at the same time you know. I find it hard to view. People have so much suspicion of these Chinese scientists doing research into back corona viruses. That seems very unfair and very sort of aggressive. Do think it's natural to an extent to look to someone to blame it just not necessarily helpful. That is Adam. Taylor who's a reporter with the Washington Post? Adam thank you thank you very much.
