Joe Exotic special looks at ‘Tiger King’ star's life before the fame

"Tiger King you're going to like what's on Discovery Channel and I love Discovery. It's Ah, it's a show is going to tell us how the Tiger King became the tiger king. What happened to Joe Exotica in the beginning of years of early life is going to be in depth interviews, but even more impressively, the guy I'm getting Ray bring in Hey, was a police art officer at just 20 years old. Through that 80 f DEA, FBI, even secret Service. Hey, worked with undercover and before I go any further on his success. I want to bring him in right now. Derek, how are you? Hey, thanks for having me appreciate it, and I want to make sure it's Derek Love Oscar, right? Sounds good to me. Okay. Call you Derek. Listen, man, I want to talk about this show because I'm when the first ones that got sucked into this tiger King on Netflix. What? It was just what a compelling show you have a show tonight. It's on Discovery Channel watching, but I want to talk about your credentials of 1st 20 years old. You get hired on as a police officer. Then you become a sergeant. You're later assigned to special investigations. You work for the F D, a FBI secret service. There's credentials on and on and on on on even a best selling author. You write this book. The book is called the Undercover Edge. You publish it in 2018 and then bam. Within five days, it's selling out on and bookstores and on Amazon. Is there anything that you ever failed in life, man? A lot of bills a lot of fails, and I actually On someone who embraced failures because faces failures where the lessons are and from those failures. I've learned to push myself more and and try to never make the same mistake twice, but yet listen failures part of life. And if you're not failure, you're not trying. I always Try to push myself beyond what I think I'm capable of. And the only way to really find out what you're capable of to get to a point where you're felling. I've done that many times. And I'm okay with that. I'll continue to do it. Well, Okay, So let's talk about what's happening tonight. Discovery Channel. I love it. They're the programming is second to none. And tonight at 10 P.m. nine Central, You have a show called Joe Exotic before it was King. A snapshot And in this, you tell the story. What made Joe exotic Joe exotic? What happened to him in his childhood? You interview all kinds of people. How did how did this come around? How did this project come around? And what do you think about your experience doing it? It was a great experience, You know? Listen, I don't want to be involved with something that was just capitalizing on the success of the Netflix series. I want to come at it from a different perspective. And, you know, I think from an investigator's point of view, and from what I know our viewers, and I'd like to watch its how the mind works. Why a criminal becomes a criminal, and that's the perspective we took here. Why Joe dot in the way he is so This is kind of a prequel. To the Netflix special. We dive into Joe exotic childhood. His life as a young adult. And how he became the person we know. Today, I tell your king. At one point, there were a bunch of families sitting on the other side of the glass, all pointing at their little babies and the bastard. That's that one's mind at that point, he doesn't have a mullet, and he's not thinking about killing Carol Baskin so and there are people in life l they'll try to point to what changed them. I moved to a different neighborhood. Then I fell in with the wrong crowd and got into drugs. There's always some little apex and little point where life goes the other way. With with Joe Exotic is there like one thing one trigger. You could point you that said, Okay, This is what did it to him. You know, Listen, I'm not a psychologist. But if I had to say for me personally, what I thought was kind of a crossroads where he went wrong way was that is he had a he had a brother, who was really into an apple. They open their store together and Unfortunately, his brother was tragically killed in a drunk driving car accident, and I think that his brother's not only served as like a role model, but also somebody kept Joe on the right path. And as soon as he was no longer there Obviously, the traumatic, you know, Event itself really shook Joe, but also when those future decisions came up after his brother's death, instead of going the right way, he went the long way. And it was just a trickle effect. Where, you know, one bad decision led to three more And I think that was really the moment where Joe lost his way because he lost that role model that he could confide in and look up to Tonight, Joe Exotic Before he was King premieres on investigation, Discovery and such a great channel about second and not again and programming. It's just so compelling, and tonight we're going to be looking at where you are, and it's in depth interviews, even one of his husband's you interview on this law enforcement on and on. It's an end depth. Look at what made Joe exotic Joe exotic in a skin a sub Early days. It really wait, try to take it from a deeper dies. It's Joe exotic from the Netflix special covered really answered the question. How and why he became the way he is today and listen throughout the episode. There's going to be moments where you feel bad for Joe, and there's going to be moments when you're really angry with him, and that's that's intentional week. It's okay to feel bad for someone because of what they experience and it's also okay to feel bad for them. But understand that they're where they should be. Which in this case is in prison, So you know that's that's what we're hoping to achieve here tonight. Well, I can't. I can't wait to watch this. And here's what I'm wondering. When this tiger king came out it was right. It could have been timed better. Derek, listen was right. A cove in 19. Everyone was starved for something to do or watch because we were stuck in our homes and people. Benj, watch this over and over. It was a time It was the topic of our show almost every single day. But with them said he always had accusations that Carol Baskin had killed her first husband. He even went as far to say he fed her to the Tigers. If I've got to think that this special is going to be a huge success, are there already talks in another special where you might be able to look into Carol basket as well? I know there's investigators doing that, in fact, is a special tonight before our special called Tigers. Lies. I don't know the name. I apologize, but it's radar is on right before ours, And it's an investigator that looks into whether or not Carol basket could have been. Responsible for the death of Don Luis and what that means for Joe exotic. So that's something you're into making tonight. Grab some food have. Ah, sit down and tune in for both things were back to back talking with Derek Lava, sir. When you when you watch that show, it's like these can't be real people. Each person is more bizarre and fascinating than than the last one. You talked to give us a couple of people We didn't see maybe on Tiger King that you talked to for this special that are really unique and interesting. Well, you're going to get Ah, I think the biggest one that you're going to hear have is ah phone interview with Joe, exotic ex husband, the one who was actually stood over his bed and put the put the gun in Joe exotic face. He's also in prison right now for murder, and he shed some light on the relationship between him and Joe, but also some of the things that were going on a far polygamy and you know, you know, sex and drugs and I think that you know, the people who visited the do the do did not know about. They did not see from Joe when he came out, put on his whole, you know, show Part of what intrigues me so much about this special is when the Tiger King special the Siri's ended on Netflix it seriously left. Just start for more. Tonight on investigation Discovery. We kind of get that MME Orb because they tried to do a special was mostly zooms and this and that, But tonight there's actually uncovered footage and home movies. Photos that you guys have acquired and that's going to be shown as well. Is that correct? That's correct. It's not going to be just a rehash of the Netflix special. Like I said before, it's the prequel to the Netflix special. So if you enjoyed Tiger King, and you're looking for a little bit more of an in depth perspective of Who Joe is because that's really what we focus on then then this is probably something you should check out. I probably don't want to know the answer to this. They did a pretty good job of hiding any potential animal abuse and the show was that a part of his life, though 100% 1000%, and that's that's why I am part of this is well. This man was responsible for the killing of at least five innocent tigers and himself at court admitted that there were many more and I really hope that when this is all said and done, 10 15 years from now what we remember about this whole Tiger King phenomenon. Is that it was the start off the end of, you know, exploitation and killing of tigers and also that don lose his family get the closure they deserve and find out what happened to their father. If that's what ultimately comes from all of this, you know chaos. And I'm all for it. I hope it's just not for, you know, 15 minutes of fame for Joe and Carol. No,

"Whether wasn't all that great. We're all locked down, couldn't go anywhere. And so I'm watching the tiger King. You know, it's It was. It was just it was nonsense. But everybody was consumed by why that because there was really not a whole lot to do. So I'm watching this. Yes, well, they're a bunch of nut balls. I lived in Oklahoma for five years about 40 years ago, and I don't recall anything like that out there, but whatever it was a phenomenon. But the tiger king lives on Joe Exotic is in jail. We know that if we watch the we watched the special And just I think it was yesterday. There's AH TV special in the works about what happened. To Carol Baskin and her husband missing husband. Don Luis. He disappeared in 97 in this special, they take a dog out. On the lake that, I guess was next to where Don Luis the missing husband used to live. And this dog, which is a cadaver sniffing dog went nuts. So they're thinking maybe they finally we're going to find out what happened to Don Luis. He may be at the bottom of the lake. You maybe someplace else Who knows? But now comes this. This special This is called Joe Exotic before he was King. It will immediately follow the finale of Joe Exotic Tigers lies and cover up. That's the one we're out on the lake with the dog. Anyway, Joe exotic before it was King And one of the experts on that show is standing by right now you know him from my sight was season 14 15 Big brother. He won big brother about 67 years ago. And now is good onto Ah, career hosting. These shows on cable TV. He is Derek Alabaster, and he joins us here on 700 wlw. Derek, How are you on this glorious Saturday? I'm good. How are you? Good, Joe Exotic. Now, listen. The best thing that happened, Teo, the Tiger King. Was. We were all locked down and we couldn't go out. And what we could do was watch Netflix. But this time this the show this this this this man, this This whole lifestyle became such a huge deal in the in the spring before we get into your show a little bit about that show without the epidemic. None of this takes off, does it I agree. I think it was the perfect storm. I think I can tell you personally for me if I was in lock down in my house 23 hours a day. I probably wouldn't have watched the series because we were starving for content and everyone's talking about it. You know, everyone watched it and It was a perfect storm for him. Yeah, it's you know, it's funny. I lived and worked in Oklahoma for five years, and I never saw anybody like him anywhere even in the far reaches of Oklahoma, outside of Oklahoma City in Tulsa. I never saw anything like it. His story, his phenomenon, his his farm or whatever you want to call. It happened after I I left that state. But I'm looking at this guy and I'm thinking Where the hell did he come from? When you think of the same thing. He was just so bizarre. Yeah. You still bizarre for me? I was like there's no way this guy's really There has got to be just for the camera and what we found as we watched it. And as you know, I do My own research about him is No, that thing. This is for real Like this guy. I really applaud, you know, attempted to become the president of United States at one point like he's for real. And and, Yeah, I was starting the watching. It was like that accident on the highway that horrific but you can't look away. Yeah, I know. And there's so many characters in so many different tentacles. I mean, they even have the one woman who was either an antagonised or a protagonist depending on how you view viewer. She's on dancing with the stars. Now, Carol Baskin And the people that tried to come in and I guess, rescue the animals from him. Just it's it's just a bizarre set of circumstances. But you're sitting there and you're watching this. As I said, You're a guy that has a number of different things going on. You got a best selling book. You have a resume in television. You're hosting another Siri's Did they come to you and say, Hey, Derrick, Would you like to host this Siri's? Or Was it something that you said? You know what? I might want to do something with him? How did what was worse the seed for all of this? Yeah, You know, I'm a contributing expert in the show. There's two or three other experts in the show like a clinical psychologist. And for me, it was just like, you know, what are we going to get out of it? But we're just trying to exploit the You know the narrative and give more than through the sky, or is there something to learn here and my takeaway was There was an opportunity to educate here and show how Joe Exotic didn't come out of a hole in the wall he involved over years because of the traumatic experience he had as a child. And I think that's something that I you know, investigators. Our job is to put away the bad guys, but I also think you should be part of identifying, you know, treat that contribute to someone becoming a bad guy. And that's where I look at this special. And so when they came to me and asked me about it, I said, Listen, if we're going to do something positive here and bring more attention to the idea that the things that happened as Children and young adults to affect our decisions in the future. Yeah, I'm in And that's and that's ultimately what I came on board. Well, and you come with resume, too. I mean, you're a former cop. I think you rose to the level of detective in Rhode Island in your town in Rhode Island before all of this stuff..

"He is asking President Trump for a pardon. From his 22 year murder for hire sentence. And his legal team. Hand, delivered a copy of the application to the White House a couple of weeks ago. Exotic submitted a 257 page case to Trump. Which argues several reasons why I should be pardoned, including a claim that he was sexually assaulted by prison staff. Here's the thing. You gotta know your audience. You've got to know who it is. You're trying to sell something too. Is Donald Trump strike you as the type of person that would peruse through a 257 page case about why you should be pardoned. I do not think so. Perhaps it should've been Two pages with pictures and graphs. He's sort of a day. He used to make these crazy videos when he worked at that that Tiger place that he did. He used to make these crazy videos in front of like a green screen with like dummies of Carol Baskin, that he would shoot with guns that would have been like that much more at the president's alley, much more entertaining. Or maybe A case that fits in 280 characters. That's what the president's used to 157 pages. I mean, I think we know by now he doesn't even read 257 pages of an intelligence briefing. I don't think he's going to read Joe Exotics 257 page, although I'm sure it would be more entertaining. Probably a probably right Carol Baskin is going to produce and star in a new reality show that's meant to expose animal abusers and those who engage in animal cruelty. According to a variety She and her husband, Howard, Baskin, goingto be teaming up with TV America's think factory media to create the show. Baskins will continue what they call their 20 year war against those who engage in animal cruelty, and they'll detail the history of animal abuse alongside other activists. This sounds like a horrible show this ends This sounds like A 30 minute or our long A. S P c. A commercial? Who the hell wants to watch that? I'm being hopefully, though it has happy endings. Some of the time is not all of the time where the Tigers air getting rescued and brought to places like Big Cat rescue. I'm hoping that it's more of that where they're going in and saving tigers. I would watch that. The team is also going to work to expose lawsuits and violations to animal rights that are connected to various companies and organizations. Well, if they're doing some, like undercover stuff, you know where they're exposing. Some farm or factory or something like that, and that that could be interesting. But if it's just gonna be Abused animals for hopefully, it's animals like get saved in the end in the end of the show. Carol Baskin said recently that it would be a huge relief for missing former husband wouldn't be found. Thanks to the commercial that ran during her dancing with the Stars debut. She said about that commercial that was put out by the family of Don Luis. I believe their actions or just a publicity stunt. But if it helps us find on that will be a huge relief. Of course it would for her. I mean, she lets say she didn't do it. Everyone in America thinks that this lady is a murderer. I mean, she what? I felt bad after watching the show back whether or not she did it. She did do a lot of things for you. The animals. She saved a lot of beggars. But you didn't come away from the documentary thinking. Wow, This woman has really done a lot for animal rights Down tigers. This woman killed her husband. That's all that anybody talk. What was it again? That led you to be so certain that she killed her husband. What happened in the Syria. We'll see. She married him when she was 19 years old. She says he was abusive and he cheated on her. And he was a terrible husband. So his disappearance, didn't you? No bother her. Particularly. She literally met him as a 19 year old prostitute. Essentially right, she marries this Brazilian air gets the job. Homer dreams. Yeah, gets the job of her dreams at a tiger rescue helping animals. He crosses the line a few too many times and off with his head and now her husband. Like kisses the ground that she walks on. He is very obedient. He does everything she says. At their wedding, he literally wore like shackles and chains around his neck and hands. Like as a chained up cat that she was walking. So I think that this guy now I was like, Oh, I better mind my P's and Q's. Yes, I cannot get on on Miss Baskins Bad side. You gotta be careful. If you're goingto do what Don Luis is alleged to have done and the woman's got tigers and she knows you know how they operate. Exactly. She's she's being sued for defamation by a former assistant. As part of the lawsuit. The daughters of Baskins, former husband or seeking more information about what happened to their father, So they're really going all in right now. The amended complaint to an earlier lawsuit was filed in state court in Tampa by Don Luis's three daughters, as well as his former assistant and McQueen. The lawsuit says Baskin to fame McQueen by posting a video diary entry on YouTube earlier in the month, in which she says McQueen played a role in Lewis's disappearance. Was this assistant in the in the Tiger King documentary and all are not to my knowledge. I don't They did have a couple of people like that that we're you know, more minor characters, but I don't particularly remember anybody standing out like that. Well, that's what I got on Carol Baskin and Joe exotic. I felt like it was important to run through all of those stories on the two of them. It certainly feels like 2020. Is going to end with some kind of bombshell. Involved in Carroll Baskins husband who disappeared. I would not be some kind of resolution wouldn't be surprised in the slightest And it fits out this year seems to be going. All right, coming up in a moment, We'll wrap things up in the final few minutes of P m. Tampa Bay here on NewsRadio. W F Ella hang up. No, you your evening is pretty full. Right?

A board has been funded. You can call the tip line, 646450653 Cola wrote that that is out of bounds. Or if Carol Baskin was involved. Well, she was involved, counselor. I imagine that someone would have charged with the crime by now. So I don't think we actually talked about it. There was another development just to give all the pieces to the puzzle. A recent former wife of the guy who was like the main grounds keeper of the the Big Cat Rescue, supposedly told his wife, I'll put you in a meat grinder just like I did. Don. So now there are people looking at the groundskeeper. From all those years ago. I don't I don't buy any of this. She's a compassionate woman who loves animals and people. If you happen to believe when you hear of cases of, you know, misconduct of any kind. If you settle or you pay out, then there's probably something wrong there. Well, you kind of gotta follow the same logic. With this breaking news story. The city of Louisville is going to pay $12 million to the family of Briana Taylor and Reform Police practice. This is as part of a lawsuit settlement months after Taylor slaying by police thrust the black woman's name to the forefront of a national reckoning on race. Mayor Greg Fischer announced a short time ago. Taylor's death sparked months of protests in Louisville and calls for nationwide for the officers to be criminally charged. The state's attorney general Daniel Cameron, is investigating police actions in the March 13th fatal shooting. Tuesday's news conference in emotional Palmer pushed for charges against the officers involved in the shooting. I've got two trains of thought here. I think this $12 million is ah, preamble to them, not filing charges. Correct. So I don't know. It doesn't bring the the all of the piece that you probably want, especially for other people who aren't actually receiving the $12 million, But the fact that this has taken so long And they agreed on the 12 mil thinks thinks that the charges are not coming. Agreed and feels like kind of a payoff. Almost. But if you weren't going to charge them anyway, I'd rather the family get $12 million, then nothing for the murder of Rianna. Tom Brady looks to be done.

The Heroine of Lime Rock Lighthouse

"Of the July thirty first eighteen sixty nine edition of Harper's weekly. There was a portrait of a steely looking woman in a long dress. Her arms crossed not the slightest hint of a smile on her face. The caption identified her as Miss Ida Lewis the heroine of Newport. She is almost totally forgotten now but back in her day IDA Lewis Miss Ida Lewis was a national hero a lighthouse operator who rode road into the stormy waters of Newport Harbor in Rhode Island to rescue mariners in distress. How many people did she save. Nobody knows for sure a dozen maybe two dozen but enough to become front page news for VIP's to clamor to meet her for a Polka titled Titled. The ocean waves dash wildly high to be written in her honour wasn't unlikely national hero. She was shy for one thing and she took up her post at the lime rock lighthouse after her father. The sea-captain suffered a stroke but the heroine of lime rock as she became known was intrepid and brave. Her first rescue was at age fifteen when she wrote out to save two boys whose boat capsized one time she used a clothesline to rescue two men who had fallen through the harbors ice ace another time she saved two sailors then went back to rescue their sheep. She wasn't instantly famous. Though in eighteen sixty nine after she saved two soldiers from drowning in the harbor the New York Times wrote she never here's the voice of Distress Neither Day without jumping shopping into her little craft and proceeding to the scene of trouble the Times added it is a pity that no testimonial has ever been given to this lady eighty for the many lives she has saved the fourth of July. That year was declared. I Don Luis Day and Newport presented her with three cheers and a new boat.
