Why Black Leftists Are the Real Sellouts
"Christians need to be strong. Christians need to be bold and powerful. This is not a time for Christians to back down and be cowardice and weak and always turn another cheek. You gotta think, David and Goliath, the story of Davy and get alive. A lot of people only remember the story when they were in kindergarten and they were playing it nice. David hit Goliath in the head with a stone and beheaded him. It's not a time to be weak and I'm not saying that's what we should be doing is beheading people, but I think most people listening know what I'm talking about. We have to stand up for what's right. We can not be afraid to call these Devils out when we see them. Jesus did it almost everywhere he said. He called the pharisees vipers on toward generation. Hypocrites. These are the things that we need to continue to do if we want to be successful. Yeah, yeah, I totally agree. I don't think black people want anything different than anyone else once. So we want to be ability to be able to thrive in society just like everyone else. And we have to be willing to fight for those things in order to continue driving. And it always amazes me how these black leftists will talk about this as white culture and that's white culture if you're on time if you're successful. You do all this kind of stuff. But every single one of these people like I see joy Reid and Don LeMond on TV. They follow those exact same principles to get to where they're at. And then they keep other black people down. To me, that's a sellout. To me, that's a
How the Left Is Trying to Brand Every Republican as Racist
"Hawley. Let's play another piece of tape here. Of how the left is now trying to use this as a way to brand Republicans as racists for criticizing Biden's open border policy even though they're the ones that have been pushing the idea that the open border policy might actually benefit them, play cut 57. We take this replacement theory and now make it the Republican racist replacement theory. Make every Republican answer do you believe in it or not? Brand every Republican. This is the party of the replacement theory. Take what is a sliver or a real minority, but I'm sorry and make it the entire raison Don of the Republican Party. Bring them on. Take a branding iron, put it on them. So that any mainstream Republican has to wear that
Remember When Bill Clinton Blamed Talk Radio for Oklahoma Bombing?
"There's only one word to use for people who take personal suffering and tragedy and loss of life and weaponize it to try to score points. It's gross. It's grotesque. There's no other word to describe it. Listening to the people on the left, the joy Reid's and the Don lemons of the world who want to somehow blame the evil action of one 18 year old in Buffalo, New York. On a TV network or a television personality or a radio personality, Clinton tried this years ago. I'm old enough to remember when Bill Clinton tried to blame talk radio. For the Oklahoma City bombing, and I think he got so much pushback in Democrats got so much flack for such a grotesque thing to do. That they didn't do it again, but they're doing it this time. They're doing it with buffalo. And it is really sickening. That's the only word to use.
Replacement Theory Becomes Don Lemon's Talking Point
"The replacement theory, that's the talking point of the Don lemonheads of the world. They're talking point is, well, people on the right are concerned that illegals are going to become Democrats, but then they take it a step further. And then they say that Tucker Carlson's of the world not only believe that Democrats want wide open borders so that they can ensure future Democrat victories in elections, but the Tucker carlsons of the world are fearful that white voters will be replaced by Hispanic voters, therefore that's racist. It's a little bit like Donald Trump being anti illegal immigration. Well, that must mean he's anti Hispanic that must mean he's racist. That's their, that's their dumbbell thinking.

What Is the Power of the Donald Trump Endorsement?
"Is what is the power of the Donald Trump endorsement. And I'm going to tell you right now, it is still very powerful. I live in Georgia, but I travel all over the country. And that endorsement is still very warm and sought after and valid in a Republican primary in particular. Because there is still the approval ratings of Donald Trump among Republican voters. You see the impact that his endorsements had that he still, again, the media is obsessed with Donald Trump. I mean, he doesn't have to necessarily be on social media for them to take everything that he says and put it on social media. It's almost as if he's there. So as you build through these races, we want to and we've talked about them when we went through here on the show. Talking about how these races could be impacted. Well, now we have some of our first results and I want to take it in a step further. And I'm going to break out from what we talked about a couple of weeks ago here on the show and say, this is what we actually saw playing out. So let's start number one. Hot take in Ohio. JD Vance comes through. JD Vance wins the nomination. He's now going to go up against Tim Ryan for that sentencing. Mike dewine, who is a governor. Many what ensure that president Trump did not endorse in that, but dewan was not in line. It seemed for that endorsement, but dewine won going away in Ohio. And now focused on the Senate seat, you got JD Vance going against Tim Ron. Tim Ron probably if you had to go out and pick the best Democrat candidate in Ohio right now to run this race in this environment with this democratic headwind that they have. Ryan's probably the best one that they could have picked. So it's going to be imperative that the Republicans come together in Ohio around JD Vance and it's been a contested contested heavily contested primary with no one in mandala in advance. But let's talk about this Trump endorsed and I want to break it down for a minute because we've talked about it and how it may play out and it will this endorsement fade and will people be willing to overcome. Well, the answer is a resounding yes in Ohio. The endorsement from former president Trump and Don Junior, along with a lot of money from mister thiel, who put in almost 13 million or more into this race, 3 million just in the last few weeks after with a surrounding the endorsement made the difference it appears in
Donald Trump Remains Kingmaker in Ohio After J.D. Vance Victory
"I'm Doug Collins. I'm glad to be sitting in for Sebastian today. I'm on the Doug Collins podcast and only here part of the Salem faculty. I'm glad that the professor let me fill in for him today on America first. We got a lot to talk about. I'm excited about what's happening. I mean, if you just go through the last few hours, let's put it in perspective here. Mainstream media has been planning this picture over the last little bit of the Trump influence in the America first agenda going down in popularity. I'm in the mainstream media would do anything they could to basically say that Donald Trump is no longer a force in American politics. Well, folks, all you got to do is sample a look to what happened last night in Ohio. Let me give you a little bit of perspective here. This is a great moment. I know for the America first listener, you ought to be one of the best informed conservatives out there. We're going to give you that information. Just 6 to 7 weeks ago. JD Vance was in Ohio running in fourth place. He was running about 1617%. He had had some help. I know Don Junior had been in there a lot going on. But it was just a model race, if you were, there's a lot of candidates in it from different perspectives. And at the about two and a half I guess, three weeks ago now, Donald Trump decided that he was going to get into this race. He picked Vance, he endorsed JD Vance. And JD Vance went from fourth place at 17% to last night and finishing up at 33% man down Josh mandel, mandel, who had been running as well, got in 23%. Folks, I don't know what else you can say. Either either this is showing that Donald Trump still has a great deal of pool into this party and that he still has folks who are very much mourning in America first gender, especially with the just complete and utter downfall of Joe Biden and the mess that's being you can not deny that Donald Trump's influence there. In fact, he won all 22 races in which he endorsed last week.
Dinesh Examines the Significance of J.D. Vance for the GOP's Future
"There's an article about JD Vance, JD Vance, the author of the book hillbilly allergies, very good book, very moving book. Who is now running in Ohio for the Senate endorsed by Trump and JD events have become kind of a liberal celebrity after hillbilly allergies. In part because he described and kind of riveting autobiographical detail is sort of hard Scrabble origins, the very dysfunctional family life, his grandmother, setting his grandfather on fire. I mean, crazy stuff like that, boring alcohol all over him and lighting a match. And all of this is in the book. It's no wonder the book was a massive bestseller. But I'll let you in a lot of liberals and journalists would say this is actually helps us understand the Trump phenomenon. The fact that working class people very often people who are struggling or poor, they're not behaving the way they did under FDR, under FDR, the kind of white working class could be counted on to vote for the Democrats. That was actually FDR's base. But now these guys a lot of them moving over to the Republicans and they're particularly enthusiastic about Trump. And yet, and yet, initially, JD Vance was very critical of Trump. And in fact, saw Trump as somebody who was, you may almost say taking advantage of this group rather than truly reflecting its values. And of course, the left love this, they were like, here's the guy who's come from that background. Here is the true you may say, descendant of hillbillies. Now, of course, JD Vance is not himself a hillbilly. Here is a guy who went to Yale, Yale law school, and has worked for big financial corporations and he's made a big success of his life and even though in the book he amusingly describes how he, you know, the first time they asked him whether he wanted a chablis or whether he wanted solving you on blankey, he didn't really know what they were talking about. He thought that there were just two kinds of wine, one is white and the other is red and the idea that there was sort of nuances or options within white and within red, he thought this was some kind of a joke. So this is all very amusingly portrayed in the book, but JD Vance, I'm sure today has a favorite Cabernet and possibly a favorite Pinot Noir. But nevertheless, the left was able to say, look, this guy who kind of knows the white working class is understands them and knows the Trump is a fraud. Well, as it turns out, by 2020, JD events became a defender of Trump, voted for Trump, endorsed Trump. And now Trump has endorsed him, and as far as I can see, Trump Junior, Don Junior is on the road campaigning for JD Vance. And some of the other candidates, by the way, are, you know, obviously very grumpy about this, JD Vance has surged into the first place. In the, in the Senate campaign.

Brave Republicans Confront DOJ About Whitmer 'Entrapment'
"A handful of Intrepid Republicans, and it's, it shouldn't be a handful. It should be the Republicans in a unified political phalanx. But no, it takes the brave ones to go out front. And here I'm talking about, I'm gonna name them. It's led by Marjorie Taylor Greene, but you've got Scott Perry, Dan bishop, Andrew Clyde, Andy Biggs, bob good, Mary Miller, Paul gosar, Andy Harris, Louie gohmert, Thomas massie Matt Gaetz, well, what are they doing? In the aftermath of the exoneration of two key defendants in the Whitmer kidnapping trial, the pressing attorney general Garland for some specific answers. Now, trying to get answers out of Garland is not an easy business. This is like going to the consigliere of Don Corleone and saying, hey, listen, we're we want to find out more about the mafia. You're actually talking to the mafia. But nevertheless, this needs to be done. And so this is a stinging letter and a demand. Of Merrick Garland copied a Christopher wray, and the questions themselves are telling, let me just read a couple of them. Who within the DoJ and the FBI knew about or was involved in the plot to kidnap governor Whitmer, tell us. Remember, this is a letter being sent by the legislators to the executive branch, which is accountable to the legislative branch. Number two, to what extent would the DoJ and the FBI motivated by the 2020 presidential election to paint political opponents as domestic terrorists specifically Vis-à-vis the plot to kidnap governor Whitmer and the events of the U.S. capitol on January 6th, 2021. In other words, this is not just at the FBI staging orchestrating infiltrating and moving along a plot. This is the FBI timing those events to coincide with an election. So the issue here being raised is the election interference, very important issue because these revelations came to light in early October of 2020.

Which is quote the head of the U.S. European command admits Biden's plan to stop Russia's invasion of Ukraine was worthless. Quote, I can't argue with your conclusions. So said general Todd Walters head of the United States, European command and NATO supreme allied commander in agreement with Joe Biden's threat of sanctions that deter Vladimir Putin from launching an invasion against Ukraine was a failure. Walters made the admission on Wednesday during testimony for the House armed services committee on a continuing war in Ukraine and its quote overarching effect on United States and NATO. The best way to have prevented an invasion and a war and with it, the refugees and with it all of the problems associated would have been to embrace American energy. The real victims here are the Ukrainian people. The Ukrainian people, millions of them. Are fleeing Ukraine to Poland and other neighboring countries. And they're unfortunately being used as pawns by this entire by the regime of both sides, by the way. Reports are suggesting that Russia has committed 70 to 75% of its entire military to the war. After failing to achieve its original agent objective, so there's one of two things that are happening either the western press is totally off base here not telling the truth or Russia's military is nowhere near as powerful. As it was, not even close as powerful as we thought it would be.

"Podcasts or tens of millions of different songs. Back before any of that, a former journalist turned writer named Don Katz, had a problem. During his daily jog in New York City, he would listen to books on tape, literally on tape as in cassette tapes. And Don wondered, why do I have to lug around a cassette player and then flip the cassette to side B in the middle of my run? Surely there must be an easier way he thought. And in fact, at the time, there was. MP3 technology existed except almost no one used it. In the mid 1990s, compact disc sales were on a tear. It would take another 7 years before CDs began to decline. But Don was optimistic. And at the age of 42, he decided to ditch his successful career as a writer, and try to start something he knew nothing about. A tech company. A company that would create a digital audio catalog of books and storytelling and spoken word, and deliver those stories to users through a device specially designed to play that audio. And as you will hear, in the early days, not many people came to the party. The technology was way ahead of its time, probably too ahead of its time. In fact, audible, the company Don founded, almost collapsed in the early 2000s when its stock price hovered at around four cents a share. But today, of course, audible holds the biggest audiobook catalog in the world. It dominates the space with a library of over 600,000 titles. And the company is now part of the Amazon family, which bought audible for $300 million in 2008. But getting to that point was painful and full of setbacks, and the story includes a cameo appearance from none other than Steve Jobs. Dot cats was a staff writer for Rolling Stone magazine during its heyday in the late 70s and 80s. He grew up in Chicago in the 50s and 60s and strongly identified with his dad, who owned a small business. So my father was just incredibly kind of smart, kind and, you know, it's a cliche, but he was one of these guys you would want it to be your kind of best friend. I looked up to him. I probably wished he was home more because he was frankly like I became someone who worked a lot. And he was also, he had been a war hero. He ran away from home basically with 17, and was behind enemy lines, highly decorated. Italy or he was in the it was in the black forest in Germany. And he didn't really talk about it. He wasn't one of those guys, but he had a different purple hearts every time I broke a leg and hockey or something, I would wake up and find the Purple Heart and my pillow. And your dad from what I understand. He hit a music store in Chicago called I guess called K musical instruments and it was. It was actually a guitar man. It's hard manufacturing. Yeah, my dad made guitars. He made them for Sears. Silvertones, but I remember that there were some pretty great bands of the era and one called spirit that had a fantastic guitarist named Randy, California who only would play K's and the like. But my dad's kind of claimed to fame at that time was that he put chord books in guitars and started this whole idea that you too can play the guitar, and it alienated a lot of the musicians, including Barney kessel and Las Paul and people that he was friends with because they were infuriated to say that their instrument was easier to play than a thinner than a violin. And of course, he said, yeah, but you know it is. And so it ended up that my family was all in newsweek magazine, taking our guitar lessons together because my dad had decided to be part of this U2 can play the guitar, which was part of the whole mid 60s folk music kind of movement. So I think back and he was definitely somebody who also liked to challenge the status quo, which I think I have come by honestly. So was he financially successful? He was financially successful in the way of a rising entrepreneur of his time. But very tragically he went out to play tennis at 47 years old on a Saturday and I got a call when I was in college saying that he died playing tennis. Very suddenly of a massive heart attack. Wow. And it really marked my life in so many ways. It was definitely a formative experience. I've heard and you probably have heard this too that there's a lot of patterns of fatherlessness in highly entrepreneurial people, whether it's through abandonment or early death, including taking ridiculous risks as a journalist in the early part of my career, where I could have easily gotten killed several times. I think I was working out his heroism and other kinds of things. So, you know, you come to these things a little later in life, but it is interesting to reflect on it. So for college, I know that you went to NYU and you majored in English and from what understand Ralph Ellis had be Ralph Ellis at The Invisible Man Ralph Ellison was a professor there. And you kind of had an opportunity to sort of work with him to be tutored by him. Right. He taught me how to read and Jorge that I fully didn't understand. And I knew that I loved more than anything the sound of literature. And I was just and how it felt to me, but I Ralph actually kind of flushed it out in a way that it became something that I was fully able to understand. He also, he also gave me the I think the confidence to try to be a professional writer, which I proceeded to do for 20 years. Was Ralph Ellison you're like your thesis adviser? Yeah, he basically was. And Ralph was a deep and exacting intellectual. So I had to work really hard and read really hard. Anyway, it was an amazing experience. He would sit with a big stokey and he was amazing story for telling voice with his Oklahoma. I've said that his voice was like a coal car coming out of my mind. And I would just be mesmerized and it was a big supporter and later even the audible transition right at the time. He died. He was incredibly supportive of what I did. So you graduate from NYU and you're sort of thinking that you want to be right, but it's not that easy to do so and you did what lots of people do, which is you decide to go to graduate school and to continue studying. I'm assuming you went to London to London school economics. Am I assuming correctly that you didn't really know what you wanted to do, you wanted to kind of buy some time? Absolutely. In fact, I thought at the time almost everybody thought if you didn't know what you should do, you should go to law school. Yes. Right. But I studied the European economics and politics and international history. And I was living with my old friend, Barbara, who was a rock writer. She had gone to be a rock and roll writer in London. And so we just paired up and shared a flat, and so I would come home and there would be, you know, Rod Stewart and Keith Richards.

"Us all up when it comes to research but t tell me about yours. I'll i'll start by saying that. I have for the last So after i got out of the army. I worked As an fbi special agent swat guy for a while. And then when i got out of the fbi for about the last nine years. I've worked with companies who were marketing and selling technology to primarily special operations command in in the us army. And so in the course of doing that. I was fortunate enough to work with a number of israeli companies in loved working with israeli companies. Love israeli's in tel aviv. Were the book starts one of my favorite cities in the world. If you've never been there you have to go. Israelis are incredibly kind and friendly. People speak grade english the food. They're fantastic grade everything. Today's about it. But one of the one of the crazy parts. I win Hamas kicked off the latest Conflict that you were alluding to. I had to really workers were visiting that week. And they're literally from their phones showing the videos that their children are taking of rockets arguing over their house and being intercepted by the iron dome. And so as you as you mentioned that that plays very heavily in my book in there some things you you getting right as a thriller writer you like saying i. I kinda figured out where this was going but certainly never in my wildest dreams did. I think you know something that i put. My book would happen in in real time and my friends are forced to watch out there trying to deal with that from a reach research perspective. A lot of what My matt drake protagonists does and what In which jack ryan. Junior does is john from my time in the military or in the fbi. My job was to run and recruit what we call sources or what folks in the intelligence community call assets and so ryan certainly does some of that as well and then from an overall research from a global perspective you have to you have to be a voracious reader of both current events and what's happening in staying abreast of what's going on in the world and then because of its. Tom clancy book. your readers. Also want you to get the technical details right and so there are a number of Scenes in my book. There's one where there's an thirty five seen when that. I'm really proud of. And i had a friend of mine. Who was a retired lieutenant. Colonel in the air force f sixteen pilots. That hoping with that. You know there's a mortar system in there that plays pretty prominently. And i had several folks who were veterans of the ranger regiment and helped Feel that motor system. That gave me information about exactly how that would go. And so that's kind of the key of it as you mentioned. There's a ternary search but at the end of the day you're writing a book of fiction but not a non fiction book and so the story has to drive that and you can't be. This was something. Tom clancy was. So good at is to know how much detail the put into really again going back to my last illustration make you think you're sitting in the cockpit of that fourteen or in my case the f thirty five but not so much that it weighs down the narrative and folks. Forget what you're actually writing. So hopefully i was able to walk that line. Oh you did What's so cool. Of course is is knowing that these systems are in place but more importantly that the people who operate them the true patriots the american heroes and the israeli heroes in this case are doing the work that we don't even know about and i. I realized that a technical question about the information. Do you have to get any of this. Cleared through the pentagon the pentagon but because i was an fbi special agent. What i have to do is send every book to them to get cleared beforehand. First with my matt drake series. Like i said. I don't i don't write an fbi agent. I write a case officer for the defense intelligence agency which is which is different somebody from the intelligence community so i thought well this review will be really really quick and it was terrible because the is of the book they reviewed it and then they send it out to every other three letter agency that they thought i might have ever rubbed shoulders with and gave them a chance to review it as well and so the first book was brutal and then i think we both got a little better at at my second book. The outside man came pretty quick. And then the tom price people target acquired they were able to the fbi was able to turn around and just a little under which was which was fantastic and so they did a really great job at it but man. It is now two books a year which means every six months. I'm turning in a book. We have to go through this review process and it always makes the publisher incredibly nervous because you know the publication date is gonna get done in time or not so it's it's always some high adventure for share a could spend all day talking tech talk but i just wanna have you talk a little bit more about the plane. The f thirty five. What an incredible machine share with us just a little bit about what makes it special the stealth technology but also the the sensors on that. It's like the uss enterprise. Tell us about it. Yeah so it's really really fascinating in that. They're there to fifth generation fighters that the us fields and by an in the delineation for fifth generation. Fighter applies to a couple of things one of them being the self-capability the platform like you said and then also the The sensors and armament that that platform is is able to use them for the first one in those is a little bit older. The f twenty two raptor which is still the world's premier aired fighter. It's it's unmatched in its capabilities. And the second one is the f thirty five and so the twenty two was designed for a very specific role in air. Air air interdiction rule. The f thirty five was built to be an all around platform that replaced the number of different airplanes for for the Marine corps replaced the harrier at one time in the navy. They thought it was going to replace the eighteen In the air force it was potentially going to replace the a ten but also Replacing the sixteen and so what makes it such a compelling platform is it's not it doesn't have the same flight characteristics as an f. twenty two but it has the fifth generation stealth capability as you lied to but what really is compelling about. It is its ability to do the sensor fusion. And so that. I get into that a little bit in the sequence. You're talking about in that. Each f thirty five if you can imagine them as being their own Having their own ip address if you will in which it can reach out and grab sensor data from both its onboard set of sensors other aircraft and then other things that are out there in and that's been There have been things like that that was available before and what people have found that it overloads the pilot and so as a former pilot of flying apaches. You have what's called an hugh helmet display unit that slides every your. I am as you turn your eye. The center moves and you actually fly By that census through that one. I and what people find with that is. That pilots are often uber. Well by the amount of information that's available to them so another amazing port of the f. Thirty five is there's actually artificial intelligence algorithms that work it take this tremendous feed of of raw sensor data kinda prioritize and then displays it for the pilot in in the manner in which he or she needs. And so you're not fighting through. Do i select this. Do i select this. How do i tag this target. What they're trying to do is is offload that work from the pilot to give them what they need to make decisions in that particular moment and fascinating truly. A smart plane piloted in this case in the book by very smart lady pilot. I thought that was a great great tug. I happen to know somebody whose daughter is indeed a fighter pilot. and it's a it's a really impressive part of the book which i can with don bentley target acquired. Tom clancy jack ryan junior novel. One of the things that strikes you of course you have to have a good set of villains and do you have the village but one of them in particular and this is what. I wanna give anything away so i'll ask you. In general one of them in particular is somebody who could pose as a west are quite easily and. I'm just speculating. That great idea for the novel. But i'm just guessing that the other side is.

And it's it's a social skill right. And being behind the mic and being behind the camera are similar in a lot of ways. In that you are trying to bring out something and the other person in. You're talking to a person you're interacting with the person and that's that's kind of. That's kind of the gig. Yeah and it's it's interesting to kind of make sure that you want the flow. You want the conversation to be entertaining You know i. It's it's funny. I had i sent out sick kind of my some of my core audience members and i said hey. Don't tell me what i can do better like you know i wanna know and so it was funny. One of them said well. You know jesse. I think sometimes you try to keep it about an hour and i think that's the best he says. And then i listened to your podcast today and it was an hour and twenty five minutes and i went. Don't change a thing. I would not have edit anything out so just keep doing what you're doing so yeah i mean. I aim for half an hour for mine But you know the last two episodes have been about forty minutes. So that's that's my version of that is like an extra ten minutes. And i'm like i don't wanna cut anything exactly. No it's good well. This has been great. I i forgot that you're from canada. I would not.

Had he find your guests through a variety of places it started out with me talking to a lot of fellow podcasters but as i mentioned off the top of the show one thing that had been doing a little bit more lately. As as i've been reading. I do a lot of reading of of online magazines. I'm a big consumer of news and culture and various other things. If i read something. That's interesting now. What i'll do is. I'll frequently reach out to The author and see if they wanna come on the show and amazingly enough a few of them you know say yes and so You know i i. I have to That i've recorded that. You know already in the can which are ready to come up with a couple of weeks. i've had journalists from you know the new yorker the atlantic Buzzfeed independent journalists. All kinds i've had authors add sam keen who's a science author All kinds of really interesting things so that the topics can range all over the damn place. So which is which is kind of nice. Because then if you're someone who likes something a bit more scienc- you know we'll talk about mars. One we can you like something a bit more about politics and economics than this week's show would be one for you or if you like one more about food than the one that's coming up next week might be for you and the best part is you know. It's if you don't like the podcast. Guess what there's a lot of podcasts. Out there yeah. If you don't want to listen to mind that's cool. Guess what there's a bunch of other ones out there and god love. You go find one do you do you try to kinda mic. It sounds like you try to mix up the topics where you you don't stay overly political. You don't stay overly scientific you kinda try to mix up some you know like well. This sounds would be an interesting discussion. This is kind of a funny fact. Is that kind of your thought as you're building this. Yeah pretty much. As i build every episode and it is interesting because now of course that i'm doing a bit more of like interviewing these journalists as opposed to sort of the you know the the weird facts. It's they're a bit more thematically linked. Also this one that the woman that i spoke to this week as medically linked about you know economic inequality Last week's was about the mars rover. But we also talked about space force and we talked about what makes an astronaut You know and then. I've talked to and then you know other episodes will be like you know a i talked about betty white being an early civil rights leader talked about the james bond film. That wasn't a james bond film about being able to clone a woolly mammoths All all kinds of stuff like that. So we try to make up for sure for sure..

"He So have you watched the broadway play on net flicks. I have not watched it yet. I've seen clips of it. Because different people have shared different aspects of social media so seemed different things And i remember when i first heard that he was doing broadway. I thought that doesn't seem like a fit. That i think would work but apparently it did. And so what the hell do i know. I don't know if you you know he's currently doing a podcast split. The some guy named barack obama. I heard that that's funny of the two of them. That's what spotify money will do for you. Yes and they were telling the story that At the end of the obama administration he had reached out. Bruce said i wanted to do something for my staff. They've been here the whole time. Would you mind perform me and brusett. Yeah i'll be glad to do. A semi could bring the whole band. That would just be kind of you know. That's strange but i'll bring a guitar and i'll sing a few songs. And and he said he was talking to patty and patty said well. You could read from the book. And bruce said he tried to reform the book but that seems stiff so he ended up paraphrasing the stories and so he ended up. Doing like you know. Sixty seventy five minute show. They are the white house and for aids at basically him telling stories and singing songs and and afterwards and you know President obama is telling the story in the podcast uses. You should do that. You should do this. Show somewhere else. And he said that was what led him to going to broadway the idea to do that. Yeah and so he did it It is my wife could not make it through she And what's funny is The very first part of the part of the show talking about his father and his relationship with his father and the town is very depressing and my wife said i don't. This is just too dark. This is depressing. I gotta go jesse. And what's funny is like five minutes later. Russa's piano says okay. I'm going to get you off. Suicide watch about my mom. So it's actually because on tunnel of love the one song about his dad walk like a man. That's one of the songs that i skipped through. I it's fine but it's you know it's not one of my favorite. That's my least favorite song on the. It's funny you say that. About bruce by the way doing that. At the end of the obama administration coming in sorta like. I'm done here. And i want to sort of do something nice on my way out. 'cause that's exactly the same thing that happened to him with letterman right.

"Album and i was listening to it with my girlfriend's brother at the time who was a big bruce head and he turned to me as we were listening to and he said they're going to get divorced. I was like i said. What are you talking about like listen to this album. They're i get divorced because that album came out. I think it was like a year or two after they got married right and the album came out. I think it was about a year before she filed for divorce and he was a hundred percent right. And you know it's i mean it's a bit simplistic and reductive to say that. It's an album about that but at the same time if you if you listen to it it's oh my goodness. It's there as clear as day. So i remember critic writing once that with tunnel of love and it says it truly is The story of a marriage falling apart and I don't know if you've You know. Bruce has been very vocal over the past few years He did the autobiography which is a fascinating book. Then he did broadway and then he did western stars right which is where he An album that very jimmy webb glen campbell ish Kind of influences and he recorded that album live in his barn and between songs he talks about it and shares of himself and he said there was a point in his life. Where if you love him he would try to hurt you and get you away from his life before you could hurt him. He you know. He talked about fighting depression of so. Yeah i think your you know your friend was spot on It is one of my favorite of his I think there is a lot of beauty in it and a lot of You know one of my highlights. He was in houston back in two thousand fourteen and someone had a sign request. Do one step up and you know and he did it And he says you know we do not know this song and you know in the bandon walk through it and it was a great version of doing that. So yeah i love it. I mean the other funny thing about that album when you think about it. In sort of in retrospect you look back at it. Is you know he's coming. He's coming out of born in the usa which sells like twelve million copies. He's like arena. Rock god of the planet for the entire decade etc. What do you do after that. Do you know what i mean like. After he after he did the river. You know he. He went really stark. He went home aiding and he did nebraska so he couldn't exactly do the same thing. You can't sell the make this dark star album again because that would seem a little too. Formulaic outcomes tunnel of love. Which is kind of i guess a little bit in between right in the in the sense that it's not it's not that big arena. Rock that you will have from a born usa. But it's not as stark as nebraska. It's not as sort of quiet. As as goes tom jones which was come later on but at the same time is is more personal in. It's telling his personal story about him. It's not just this sort of like. Oh you know. Jenny did this blah blah blah blah. It's it's you can tell. These are things that he is..

"Of course. I don't know if you have kids but i have two daughters and you know you start also pick up some of their music as well. I'm fortunate in the sense that Like my eldest daughter for example seems to have taken some of my musical taste. Which i will be i will take some tremendous pride but also also of course. There's lots of music that they listen to our. Mike actually kinda like this. This is good So it's kind of neat to see that kind of symbiotic relationship musically going back and forth between parents and kids. yeah Get chris's thirty one so just to thirty two So yeah we went through that space. And who's born in eighty nine so went through a lot of hip hop. He went through a metallica phase. Where he loved metallica And i still joke with them i go next in line has not the lyrics and then he loved little wayne little wayne and and then when he went to school in east texas he discovered country music and just i really felt in love with water country music so he now has a diverse on his playlist. He listened to hip hop and he will flip over to country. Music can do everything like that. So that's kinda fun. It's funny that it took him so long. To get into country music would have think living in texas he would've been exposed to it a little bit sooner and especially You know i share my parents All all amish to the blues brothers right but we listened to both kind of music as of the kid country and western johnny cash. Merle haggard hank williams Were big players in in my house. though my mom loves fats domino and bobby darrin and a lot of fifties rock says she loved that to a lot of people don't realize how big country music is in candidate. Don't think about that but country. Music actually does very well in canada. Most of the time outside of major urban centers like it won't do as well in a city like toronto where i live by. You know like if you're three hours north of toronto where my mom lives. Country music does very well there. Of course if you're out west in alabama or places like that tons of country music it has very very well. Where did you get to see the pbs. Ken burns documentary on country music. Yes i didn't know. He did one a recent one. Yeah just a couple of years ago he did a part of. I really recommend it It he talked about it that you know historically when he does His documentaries like the civil war jazz roosevelt's you know. He has historians and so as he started filming. This historians and musicians told the same stories with me so he ended up using a lot more musicians. He said because what was interesting is Marty stuart would be telling a story and he would pick up a tar and start playing the song that he was talking about. So it goes all the way back to the roots of the it and how everything Came from jimmy rogers and the carter family. I mean those two people were the branches that lead to everything. It's again you should look at. Ken burns country music. It's absolutely worth watching tokyo. Just even if you're not a fan of country music just it's fascinating to hear all the things and stuff so that's good and some great like i said it's filled with musicians telling stories. That's good So you talk about you. Have an eclectic playlist. So are there bands that tend to stay consistent on your rotation. Ooh that's a good question..

"Well i would think even if you decided to choose springsteen lyrics you would still have a hell of a hard time narrowing that down absolutely really bit. It's it's sort of like when people say to me. Hey what are your top five albums. Or whatever. And i'm just shoot me in the head i you know because that's one of those questions where asked me today and it's probably going to be a different answer from if you ask me a month from now or three months ago right. Yeah i get that question. A lot of casual fans like okay. Well what's your favorite bruce springsteen songs and you know and i go well it just depends on the day because it depends on the mood and everything So as you're getting into you're going to an american high school based in london. I think you know like a that. Sounds like the where will american werewolf of london or something right What kind of music were you. Did you start liking as a teenager. Did you start. Finding a specific john rao or remained eclectic. It was really. It's always been all over the place. I think i've never gravitated towards like one specific genre or style of music. You know like i. I listened to you know the classic stuff that everyone listened to in the late seventies early eighties right. I was listening to you. Know my serono's listening to you know in eighty in the eighties. I was listening to pop and rock. I never did medal. I was never much of a metalhead I had nothing against it. It just didn't really speak to me in the sense that like having something that i can listen to that. I can probably sing along with. Because i can sing as well That's the other thing i forgot to mention. I'm voice actor as well. I do voice over his for commercials and cartoons and that kind of thing in my everyday life so I like having something that i can. I can sing along to and and it's more melodic and for the most part metal doesn't really scratch that issue for me. Guess that's one of the reasons why i will when they said Band is a guilty pleasure. A you know. I said well you know i grew up in the seventies and i sang along with many of barry manilow eight tracks. Yeah you know what. I don't think anything should really be a guilty pleasure. I've always said that don't think anybody should be embarrassed about anything. They have on their tunes playlist or whatever it is or on the spotify playlist because if it is music and enjoy it then god love you because you know good for you like i. I'm one of those people. it's funny i. I sort of made a reference to hanson. Two minutes ago. I will legitimately listen to hanson. They are good pop writers. They rank good pop albums. they're fantastic. Yeah so. I have no problem with that. And someone says dude. You're a middle aged man listening to hanson like. Yes yes i am oil. I had a guy on the show a couple months ago. That did a whole thing about taylor. Swift and springsteen connecting and everything and it was talking about It was a very interesting and he said yes. I'm a middle aged fan. I listened to taylor swift because of my daughter's i'm proud to admit i like the music. I i liked taylor swift albums and you know. She spoke to a so. That's interesting. that's the funny thing is that you do also when you when you have kids..

"Lie entirely north of canada's southernmost border including states like north dakota and montana and wyoming this tons. It's it's crazy you know. I'm thinking of the west wing episode talking blocks of cheese episode. Where they talk about the the world isn't how you look in. Cj is like you're freaking me out right. Well it's it's funny that you say that because we talked about that fact i episode three interesting things and i referred to that episode and in fact pulled in a sound bite from that episode and dropped it into the show so this is about thirty forty seconds from that exact one that you reference funny this. I love the fact that you knew it. Yeah there you can never go wrong. Quoting aaron sorkin so yeah. That's nice. Well don we always like to start at the beginning so talk about growing up. Where did you grow up in. What kind of music did your family. Listen to your growing up. I had a pretty eclectic Background growing up. i grew up in ottawa. Which is the capital of canada. Until i was twelve and then i moved to london england and lived there for a while and then came back here to toronto so it was kind of all over the place and it was a mixture of my own seventies music as i was growing up and You know i my mom Listened to a lot of show tunes. So i had a lot of broadway show tunes as well and And then kind of formed my own musical tastes going forward from there but i became somewhat of a crazy crazy music listener to the point whereas my wife will tell you i really cannot do much functionally the house if there is not music playing. When did you. When did you graduate secretary score. High school they say here in the us. I graduated secondary school. And while the funny thing is i lived in london and i went to an american school when i was in london. So most my most of my friends from high school are actually americans And i graduated from there in nineteen eighty four. Okay so i'm an old man. We'll see irish. Wait a minute. I graduated high school in seventy seven. Oh see there. You go yeah. So that's why when you were talking about top forty. I was looking good and we're looking. We are yeah that You know you have that kind of the the seventies and early eighties that that pop culture in In this is the old man syndrome right but one of the beauties was listening to either. The am radio or the fm radio. The eclectic music right like this is. And i'm just as bad as anyone else like when i have sirius. Xm i have it on the east radio or less except when my wife's in the car and then we will pick either seventies. You know the road trip channel or something..

"We kinda talk about doctor who episodes and i do another podcast. Where we're currently covering wanda vision and i was telling my partner that i i'm drifting away from doing episodes about recapping you know shows were into the interviews. I i love In so i i really i love talking to springsteen fans and that will always be the bread and butter of the podcast. But i find myself branching out that if someone has an interesting article or you know. We're both in part of podcast forums. People say i'm looking for guest. I wanna be a guest. And i'll go. Hey if you have any passionate about music. Join me and we'll talk and so. I'm glad you're here today. Thanks yeah it's funny i. It's interesting how things can kind of change a little bit. When it comes to the podcasting world. I mean when when my show started up last year it was mostly like each of the three interesting things usually sort of three quirky interesting facts that we discovered or you know Interesting historical facts and scientific factors. Just sort of neat stuff that you would be like. Hey honey i. I read this on the internet today. And it's really cool The only downside to that. I really like that is like for example. If i had you on the show jesse. And i said okay. These are the three things were talking about. You would then have to spend like a day or two kind of getting up to speed on the fact that you know henry. The eighth did this or that. The mars has this atmosphere. Whatever it is. Whereas when. I'm speaking to somebody who's a journalist. Who's written about these things. It takes all that away. It's almost like i'm interviewing them about something. They have they've talked about. I'll and i'll give you one of my most fun. Facts of the very first fact that that started the show. And i and i'll get you on the spot with it because of course i'm up here in canada down there in texas so i will ask you and your listeners. An interesting fact and see if you can get which is. How many american states would you guess have land mass that lies north of canada. And what that means is of course north of the southern most point of canada. And it's not a trick question. It's not like canada. Owns an island off the coast of fiji. It's not one of those. So the southernmost tip of candidates is the tip of -tario which is actually pretty close to where i am. So how many american states would you say have landmass that lies north of there a you would think a lot of new england would because that's pretty high and then also kind of on the western end so i'm going to say ten say ten that's higher than most people guests when i ask and by the way canadians get this wrong to. I'll ask americans canadians. Usually the average will get somewhere between three and eight. You said ten and the correct answer is twenty-seven wow including california. Wow and it's funny because like we all have that idea in our brains of the brigada projection. The map is just sort of as this flat thing. But if you look at it like if you pulled it up on google maps in front of you right. Now you'd see a lot of americans have the impression that canada's this thing that sits on top of the united states like a hat in fact they don't realize how far down at juts to the point. Where actually those twenty seven. Eleven of those states..

It's kind of morphed a little bit into me talking with journalists about some of the stuff that they right about so for example. This week i spoke with a writer for buzzfeed about stuff she's written about income inequality especially you know. We talked about had one section about the texas storm last week we talked about the perseverance. Mars lander with The space journalists from the atlantic magazine so Yeah all kinds of neat sort of interesting stuff. It's kinda kinda laid back and breezy and and a lot of fun.

"Exact on that spot very nice and always a catch Nice number take ten claimer give everybody. A quick primer on You know on the surface and and style wise if they haven't played delta and haven't watched on what kind of you know terms of speed in terms of off the pace go in short Go and long a couple of nuances about About the oval. We do run a lot of five furlong race if here we don't it's a six furlong track. We don't run the traditional six furlong sprint. Because it start to close to the turn in the six tracks so we run five furlongs quite a bit that's a one turn sprint race and speed does dominate that race You mentioned the surface. The surface is very sandy. The sabine sand a lotta. The surplus comes from the sabine river four miles to our west which divides louisiana and texas. So it is a sandy surface. We haven't had hardly any rain the last three or four weeks so it's been a little dry. We're expecting rain later this week. To look for maybe to change. Tighten up a little bit now that the longer races you can you can get a closer and especially with a jockey that knows the track up the backstretch. They have to be in position for that last term because the stretch only an eighth of a mile long so look for the experience jockeys in the longer races. They have a better sense of pace here and get in position going into the turn. It may take some of the new guys a little while to adjust to that. The mayans sixteenth rates is the most common route ray smile and mild sixteen. We do run around only to turn so it's like a mile track. However you know it's a long run to the first term because we started shoe which is five hundred fifty yards up the track from the finish line so they'll get along run and a good way to position themselves before the first turn in the route race is the most quirky race here and we run. A lot of these two is six and a half furlong because that when you start in the stretch and you do hit the turn rather quick after the finish line But you can't get some closers and a lotta times. Jockeys will use up their horse six and a half going into the first turn to get position and those horses sometimes gasping for air turning home. So you'll get closer and fix for lunch six and a half furlong race interesting somme. How how how quickly do you think. A new writer will adjust to Learning the learning how to have a ride here. Well the experienced ones like alex. Burs and riot bury those guys. I think they'll pick it up pretty quick and they've written on track all over the country. I think they're pretty familiar with it. The new younger guys got some twenty twenty one twenty two year old young jockeys never been here before it's gonna. It's a learning curve. You know several three four five weeks before they kind of settle in and of course they won't be riding the top stock so they're going to have to do the best they can with long odds sources. So those i would have maybe a little chink in the armor of your handicap in those. If you see a young jockey bike a We have a puerto rican jockey here this season. I can't remember his name off top my head now but anyway i did a video with him on my channel the other day the younger guys inexperience you know. Think a little bit about them before you take them in a tough spot. Excellent and. I'm just looking i don't see a I don't see a It doesn't look like you've got any bugs any any bug boys or girls not at this time. I mean we have young ones.

Don stevens there you go and you know we had a nice run with the with the The jackpot and the princess and would enjoy we you know do some promotion of it leading up and and You know they. They were really aggressive the way they they advertise than and you know tried to market the jackpot and they turned it into something something substantial and It came you know it was a very clever placement to the way it it you know. It was after breeders cup and set set in a nice spot. I'm just pulling up to see. Two twenty. seventeen was when they got clobbered and that was it and has not been revived demeanor. Terms of it doesn't have to necessarily be a million dollar race. Either you could you. Could you know have a well. I mean look at this race today. For instance at mahoney. Here's a two hundred thousand dollar A three-year-old sprint. And they've also got that nice distaff that they run at mahoning As well for that ones. That coming up i should look let me see. That's coming up right away or if they spread that out a little bit that that's usually in close I think they run these steaks fairly close proximity. I know i do see. They've got the They've got the Glacial princess and the ruff kirchberg. But those are seventy five thousand. There's the mahoning. There's the the distaff that they run which is also two hundred that always seems to get a good To get a good field well from starting in two thousand and two that delta jackpot and gun. Fair was the last winter of it. Wow and exaggerated. Her went and won it Jimmy.
