"Everybody would. There'd be enough money that everybody was comfortable so they were motivated to to work and work hard. We could just help as many people as possible. That's that's always been my dream. I'm hoping that i can kind of touch on that. With the telehealth thing. Moving forward we don't have to have brick and mortar and we don't have burn up gas driving around. But that's that's what i would do if i could do that. What trip would i make. Boy i was. I'm lucky in that In my military experience. I got to see a lot of the world but it was all hawaii end Different aspects of different countries of asia. I've never been to europe. And i'd love to go back on irish mcdonald. Obviously and then again. The german side of my mom's family. I'd love to go. Maybe visit those countries in europe and maybe identifying find some relatives in See what their life has been like since their family came over and established my family and Love to go to europe like everybody else but me has good good good plans. I like both of them. Actually europe i. I've been there a few times love it. I believe you'd love it as well. Is there anything else that you would like to discuss or bring up in this podcast honestly for students out there native and nonnative but but certainly for the native students if you really want to do this first of all. It's amazing because like you said brad. There are so few american indian psychologists it is a pretty exclusive a society to be a part of its and humbling and honored to be a part of. You can do it. You can do it if this knucklehead can do it you can do also. I didn't even have math in the only math i had in high school. I sat across from my cousin and We the the teacher had us for homework. Roy exchange papers with the person across from cheated for each other. I had no. I had no idea how to do algebra by the time i got to college. Okay that's not. That's if you were better off than that at least in terms of math and we had no science. Give me a break You can do it but it has to come from your heart. It has to come from your spirit and you've got to believe in yourself and You can do it. It's a huge commitment. It's the biggest commitment that you can never make in your life next to your kids and your spouse perhaps but if you have that dream and you know you do you hear even hear my words i you know you do.

I didn't have an appreciation for teddy roosevelt park. Like i i do now. Went out there about eight times. My eighty six year old year-old father got to spend time with him looking around trying to find an elk. We saw a few elk. But we saw so much more and it's the beauty and the author of being in nuke. Beautiful country was eagles and a couple badgers and every other kind of animal except in elk or a cow elk. That wasn't in the park anyway. But what a fantastic experience that was. And i've had to give up a of that over the years quite honestly Being free on the weekends to go fishing or hunting doesn't always work out. You always hear you have been here yesterday. While yesterday was friday. i had to work. You know we have stuff to do on friday. So i couldn't be here. Get their saturday. And it's a mess of so.

"I did it. My wife. And i did a a every friday here and the afternoon we we run a program for all the clinical students. We talk about different kinds of therapy and different things in the field and our clinical training director asked me to come in and talk about equal therapy and so i came in and headed all staged of course and started talking about equal. Therapy in my wife is over at the door. Watching and kind of gave her the high sign she brings in two kittens or who kind of kittens. All of those students. That are kind of sitting there going Yeah this is really interesting all of a sudden just by having two kittens in the room. It changed everything you know. So animals are powerful in the outdoors as powerful to. And you don't have to go to an echo therapist to realize that. Get outside right. I was going to add that there. I know there are a number of people out there that not only believe in the echo therapy but they also believe that it is a different experience if you can take off your shoes and socks and actually feel the earth and there's a lot of studies out there that some people actually respond to the earth and change their heartbeat blood pressure all of that stuff and so i found that very interesting when i read that it. Sure can We we use the term in lakota Grandmother earth and so do so many not just not just the lakota people in tribes. But so many young. We always sit here. Mother earth grandmother earth. Well there's a reason that we use that we we don't say the earth my pal or the buddy we referred to the earth is our mother and grandmother. And when you get that kind of a vibe and that kind of feeling you know why. Here's a challenging question and it's going to be difficult based on our discussion. Your professor licensed psychologist inside director. And all this passion that you have for helping students and anybody for that matter getting into the field and and Academics in as well. What do you love most about any of your jobs. Oh that's actually pretty easy..

"Yeah you could. They're not just phones anymore. In case nobody noticed they're pretty powerful and so and then with the pandemic there started getting getting reimbursements not only reimbursements but the full rate oftentimes medicare medicaid private insurance for tele therapy and you allowing folks to do it in their own home. So we've started offering that service as well with two tribes into to tribal entities of doing around around the country to different tribes in organizations as well. So that's been again if there's can be any positive byproducts of this horrible endemic maybe a cultural change for psychology to to understand that especially in rural america. You don't bread killed four vehicles in trying to do private practice and consulting around. I've worked with over twenty two different tribes around the united states. I i've brand new brand new vehicles. Random to death there. Lord knows where they're driving in driving and driving and driving and now we don't have to do that. We can do this. And so that's been that's been really challenging because it's a whole new adventure in field and aspect of our field telehealth until a therapy but but we're learning more as we go and so we offer that to well. Thank you for that summary next chapter that. That's you know. Because i'm not going to be here you andy forever but i wanna to kinda slowly transition to do in that the next chapter right well. I'm sure you're going to do well at that. It's my understanding that you mentioned the equine assisted psychotherapy falls under the amine umbrella of echo. Therapy is that is that correct. Right and Echo therapy is very expanding area in our field that includes well first of all. It recognizes the outdoors as being therapeutic. And you know any of us that that are outdoors. People know that if you live you know one thing that's i know is really cool about minneapolis. All the parks in around the lakes and stuff that it. Sometimes you wouldn't even realize you're in the middle of major. Us city in the minneapolis saint paul area there. And how good you feel just walking your dog or being out or or running the five k or hiking how good that feels. It helps it. We call it therapeutic don't we you know it's horticulture growing plants. It's even hunting and fishing and conservation being in the outdoors. Being on a boat on the water with good. People is therapeutic. So how do you take that and harness that and maybe for folks. That aren't used to that or have recognized how therapeutic that can be. How people who've never seen a horse never touched a horse. And i can take them and say this is dr dolly or dr thunder are do and they can touch a horse and feel that connection. It feels good and they feel better so aeko therapy That that is the umbrella term for all of that hiking and and horticulture at all Echoing assistant they're all of that dogs and cats for crying out loud looking. You can't winter store nowadays without an emotional support animal. I don't know what i really think about all that. But if it's those animals helped decrease anxiety help people feel more able and capable in their lives. And so for that aspect of it. I i i think resonates to echo therapy.

"Take it for me going in alone like i did. Thirty five years ago sucks and there's a lot of excuses that come up to make you wanna quit. Luckily i found the society that need psychologists and lots of other native graduate students that went on to become family absolute family. So we're there there's folks out there that will support you and help you but but you gotta find us. We can't find you very good advice. I like that. And i get the sense even before this interview that if somebody reached out to you if if this reached a you know a handful of people that were interested and they didn't know where to start. I've a feeling that if they reached out to you since email you'd be all over that. So that's that's what i'm here for absolutely that dream that started when i was in grad school of what could be bread. I don't. I don't even feel like i have a job. I telescope students all the time. This is my life. It's my way of life and everybody. That knows me knows that. That's the case. You sure you don't have the kind of success that you do. Without that. The in that level of commitment i think want my brother. John dr john chainey down oklahoma state and our sister gita sweney at the university of montana whose passed on had that same drive. And we've been there since the beginning and that's what we're here for like. I must say. I appreciate that. And i like hearing that. I wish all faculty staff had that drive and motivation. I'm not saying that. Some don't i'm just saying what a wonderful world it would be. If one hundred percent of of people have that drive. I might add one other thing. You were talking about support. You're talking about Emotional institutional academic support. I'd also say Proactively searched for some of the financial support. That could be out. There any grants any internships. Anything like that any other thoughts regarding that that yeah brad. Wow that that has exploded so much with with the advent of the of the internet. It back in the day that you know everything was paper and telephone and you'd hear about some scholarship from foundation or university or something like that somewhere or a company ford fellowship.

"We had a workshop. No take a look at what it bringing in people with different world view that can stimulate and maintain a different way to run. your academic railroad takes. Yeah very good points. I agree with you and ally even when i reached out to you. I said we are looking to be an ally. And i showed some of my ignorance when i my eyes were opened when i started looking at all of these different programs That were available. I didn't even think about the need for those programs and unfortunately it would be nice to get to the point where everybody just treated everybody the same and they looked at that but unfortunately that's not the case the two things that i'd like to add Doug is that number one in order to help Alleviate that disproportionate number. You also have to get the information to those people letting them know that these programs are available. Some of them aren't even aware that some of these things are available. So that's number one number two is you can Provide more interest into the psychology field by talking more about the psychology field with people. If they've never talked about it or talk to an adviser talk to anybody else in the field our they even supposed to know that it exists and be. How are they supposed to know. Hey this is really interesting or they figure out. I find it really interesting. So i think those are fair. You know another two things to to think about. So if you're in the field. I would urge you talk about it with your friends and family with colleagues because you might eventually reach somebody who oh my gosh. I never thought about going that direction. And then they might. You might bring in more people and improve the interest in the field as well. Wouldn't you think absolutely and and to to kind of flesh that out brad. If you're hearing this and you think that wherever you may live. I don't care if you're downtown. Minneapolis near city year or anywhere in the united states of america and lots of other parts of the country of the world. But if you're anywhere standing on mother. Earth grandmother earth. And you look down. There's under your feet at all you are standing on native land in in that maybe in last hundred hundred and fifty years the native people have been driven out of there. But for whatever you want to believe ten thousand fifteen twenty thousand years and a lot of our tribes. Believe that we've always been here. But even if you just want to go by the science in the archaeological record for as long as potentially twenty thousand years every bit dirtier standing on in this country is indian land or it was indian land and land and all of those thousands of years of spirits and the animal spirits and all of those ancestors tied to that land are still there and so you are on you are standing on any you live on and you eat and you love and you work on indian land. So i'm not. I don't say that to make anybody feel guilty at all. That's not my point. My point is once.

"That you you you select and train and graduate outstanding students and you make very competitive to get into then right. You know because you only have so many faculty and so many faculty it can. There's a finite number of faculty that can work with a finite number of grad students. You know you gotta be on thesis committees and dissertation committees and mentor and advise and all of that so it limits the number of students that you can take well. How do you do that. Well historically academia has increased the standards right increase the the quantitative standards forgetting into training. You gotta have a higher gpa. Gre scores to even get a sniff at getting into a program like this will look at who that disadvantages people of color disabilities maybe older students students. So it's not rocket science. Why and it's not just american indians but certainly been disproportionately more american indians. That have not been matriculated through into the field of psychology. It's lots of folks under underrepresented and underprivileged marginalized groups. American indians up in our part of the country in indian country is recall it. Well that's us. And we're talking about north dakota south dakota minnesota montana wyoming our region will. That's indian country. I know my friends. Southwest don't navajos and apaches don't don't get pueblos. Don't get mad at me. It's it's all indian country. We realized that but for our region of india are big part of any country and until a cultural shift in departments an interesting programs occurs. What do i mean by that. A cultural shift cultures value. everything differentially. You know one culture may value this more than another one. Culture may discard what is extremely valuable in another culture well. The culture of academia then has historically suggested that a good student or in other words one that is capable of getting into our program. Has these characteristics high. Gpa hygiene ira's and if that's your culture of value and What do you get you get white middle to upper class. Young people that have come from privileged a schools and school systems.

"And certainly to the extent that we have without having the support every level up the chain of the clinical program the psychology department college of arts and sciences university boorda regions. All the way up to the very top and we've had nothing but great support ever since ninety two. When i first got here and we i got the program established. That's one thing and to illustrate that. Ever since i got here. The clinical program and the department has allotted two slots per year in every clinical cohort. That are dedicated to the inside program. One that i tried to fund with program funds from the grant and the other the department picks out as gta so our target every year is two per year and that varies a. There's one year that we took four. We might take one. We might take three some years. We don't take any if we don't have the clinical program in our other graduate programs. All have criteria for consideration in inclusion. Like like all graduate programs do and you have some lean years here and there were. Nobody meets those cutoffs in meets those criteria. Or you have even more heartbreaking you. You have several folks do meet the criteria but they're stars and they wind up going off somewhere else and you lose them and you wind up getting nothing. So that's that happens and but what's great is the department and the clinical program in all of their support have always been there to to say basically. What do you need. You know what we need to do to bring in another and can we get another. Can we get another. And as long as they're good solid students and by that i mean not just native. That's that's great. It's a qualification. But we want students that are interested first and foremost and primarily in getting her phd and going back to help american indian people maybe their own tribe maybe but if not some other tribe they go back into those communities and they're able to. Those communities will reap the benefits of their academic journey here at. Hopefully we've trained them right and good and you can't do that with all that kind of support. I did notice if you go to the u. n. d. site and that's Almost everywhere we see it coming up about this program inside a program as well and so it's not that tells me honestly that It's not only you. That's pushing the program. It is on up Throughout the university. academica Program as well. And so. I am pleased to see that and You mentioned earlier that there were two others.

"I'd go to north dakota we we we made fun of north dakota and south dakota and montana we really tell ethnic jokes grown up north dakota did you hear about the north dakota in the and all that so that certainly wasn't the plan but A the truth of the matter. Is i as i when i was on my internship and it was interviewing i interviewed at the university of montana and they offered me about one thousand dollars less than i was really kinda open for and i had been getting offers from these other places to go interview including you in d. and i my first effort it really trying to to run some leverage. I said well. I think they offered me thirty two and i was hoping for thirty three at that tells you how long ago it was and i said well i guess maybe i'll just have to go up to you indian Interview up there and the chair the department at the time said you gotta do what you gotta do. Doug so i said out and so there was off. Came up here and as soon as i got to u. n. d. and thankfully to not different jeff home who was in the clinical program at the time And mark rabi. Who is chair at the time. Were were instrumental in getting me up to interview and helping to start the inside program. And as soon as i got on campus and everybody's heard of in mid the indians into medicine program here at you and there's a few others as well but there. I got to u. n. d. and realized there were already indians into something programs. There were twenty two different indian related programs. Here you in d. And there still are most of them in a few new ones and i realized it was because i was all about starting inside program had in my in my bag you know and so wherever i was going to go. I made that clear that. I'm if you take me. This is what i'm gonna do. And you andy said that's what we want you to do and i realized well. Okay not only do. I have a welcome environment in context. But i don't have to reinvent a I if i went to any place else i'd be blazing a trail and i'm not necessarily having to do that at u. n. d. because again we have so many american indian related programs so i never looked back. I said never planned to become a north dakota's but i certainly am glad that i did. Yes i did notice. I'm gonna show the screen for everybody as well again. And this is actually Focusing there was a nice back in december of two thousand and nineteen. There was a nice article talking about the program and your role and If you can see this this was nice. Gave a lot of information on will provide this afterwards as well but it talked about inside in inside. D you wendy's indians into psychology doctoral education program and some good pitchers here. Here's you with shirt. Yeah i was just gonna say it looks very similar folks. And then you're you have a phd student there and then it gets into how you started the program what the goals of the program are and then it actually gets into a little bit. More of some of the numbers of how many indians are You know in the country versus The percentage who are actually in psychology let alone Received their phd or gone into clinical psychology as well so.

"Arthur mcdonald who is also one of the first native americans to receive a doctoral degree in experimental psychology. Tell us a little bit more about your father and how he became passionate in in that area as well. You know. it's funny brad. I never really thought of it this way until you kinda phrased the situation that way but my dad kinda fell into the same boat in the sense that he was a veteran of the korean war he was combat vet in korea started college on a football scholarship and of met up with his men a a mentor in the psychology department. Who really just took him under his wing and experimental psychology. And that's what hooked my dad into getting his phd. He was the first native american to get a phd in experimental psychology at usd. And then obviously. I was the first Parent child combination. When i got mine in clinical psychology. So i it to some extent. I've followed in his footsteps but in others. It was really dr jackson who was my mentor in clinical psychology. But certainly in the old larger picture of it was definitely my dad. I was how strange and odd and special and unique for me to grow up on reservation. my dad took us to the northern cheyenne reservation. Because he had a grant a back in the day was h samson then came along later but To train he had a grant for a program to train para professionals on the reservation through montana. State university where. He was chair of psychology for a couple of years. There we moved back to the res- And that's how we got to northern cheyenne. And so i had a. I had that role model for sure someone that had even just gone to college. Someone that that had a doctorate. D was dr mcdonald and That's something certainly none of my friends and he was the first person in our family on my dad's side obviously first person in my family to get a doctorate in anything and so i was really lucky to have him as a role model for being able to achieve the ultimate in academic success. So you know. I kind of had the two. I was very very lucky to have the to one of them being my father. Then dr jackson. I'm seeing a theme here. You are lucky person and your family but dispute that when it comes to me but not only that you know you. You've had a lot of hard work Going into developing the program at u. n. d. and that's a good transition to talk about. Hey you've been at n. D. for about twenty nine years.

"Lot of change things have settled down And then during my research. When i was looking into how many American indians are in the psychology. Field i found that. We're really underrepresented. And i have a feeling that that's part of your focus With the programs in so tell us a little bit more about you know. We talked about your undergraduate studies. How you got into psychology now a little bit more about what turned you on about looking at more of the american indians and native americans within psychology. Well i can. I can easily look back and recall as all of my friends and relatives growing up on the reservation. Seeing citing a psychologist on most of our reservations in the seventies Sixties and seventies would have been about as rare as seeing. Maybe amelia earhart and bigfoot. Riding on the back of the loch ness monster. Going down the road it was. It was something that you just didn't see. And and at the same time the sixties and seventies were of great Certainly national and even local upheaval in our country. Certainly similar that. We're going through now and a lot of our reservations. During that time. Were were in the throes of kind of evolutions as well if you look what happened. Pine ridge in the seventies and stuff and but but beyond that there were the psychopathology and the mental health issues and problems in substance abuse and domestic violence were were being untreated. Because the fact that there were no mental health professionals a few social workers here and there perhaps a psychiatrist that might come around once a month for the more seriously afflicted mental illnesses that required medication but short of that there was no assessment. No therapy going on in our world growing up and So clearly obviously the need was there and the need is still there. Thank you for that. That gives me even more. I do. I have three screens in front of me. So i'm looking around and looking at all of the research that i did in preparation for this and you covered some of the stuff that i was actually going to ask so. Thank you For covering that most of the time when Our audience members Listen to our podcast or watch our podcast. They they're looking for some advice from our guests. And so at this point. I want to ask you. What advice would you give to those. Who are in their undergraduate or even in their masters and seeking to continue their education in a graduate. you know Ah program as well Receiving their doctor..

"Changes are not coming to Alamo Plaza. The Texas Historical Commission has given the thumbs down to a plan that called for moving the cenotaph about 500 FT. Away to the South. Doug McDonald, who heads Alamo Trust says This is a huge blow to the Alamo Master plan, which was supposed to make the plaza look more like it did back in 18 36. If we really love Texas history, and we think the story of the Alamo is important, this is our one opportunity. Our lifetimes actually tell the story to tell it well, to tell us of public understand that The move was backed by tourism leaders and groups like the Daughters of the Republic of Texas. But it faced opposition from many Texas Republicans like Lieutenant governor Dan Patrick, who felt that moving the cenotaph would disrespect the defenders. San Antonio Police were involved in a shooting late last night at the Westway Apartments on Cool Labor Road That's on the city's Westside officers were responding to a burglary when they heard a gunshot come from the apartment. A woman and five kids came running out of the unit until police there was a man with a gun inside. When officers tried to talk him out. He fired several shots at them. Officers returned fire hitting the man. He is now hospitalized. No word on his condition. Police chief William McManus is reviewing Bodycam footage.

Remember, this virus is still present in our community. So mask up, Keep 6 Ft of distance from others. Wash your hands frequently, and if you're sick, please stay home and away from others. Six new death were also reported on Tuesday. Nierenberg says it's too soon to tell of the bump in cases is related to the Labor Day weekend. President Trump is blaming China for the US heading 200,000 Corona virus death. Trump called the milestone a shame, but claimed the number could be over two million. If the response wasn't done properly. The US leads the world in both total cases and number of deaths from the virus. President Trump, meantime, says he will announce his Supreme Court nominee this Saturday at four PM as Republicans want to confirm the nominee as soon as possible.

One hundred seventy plane, one, eight, hundred, seventy, seven, five, hundred, because right now Ryan when he got forces McMahon. You think Mike Tyson's done with the speaking out allegations, and has anyone ever mentioned the allegations that Angel from EC W? Mentioned against Paul Heyman and fully and some other people. Go Rhino appreciate. I am not aware of any new allegations against poulains. Anything about that as far as Mike Tyson I. Don't know what's going on there. I mean obviously Mike Tyson went to prison. He did his time. Is that enough people. I guess that's a personal choice. Given that he fought coming out of prison given that he's done a million projects since he's come out of prison. Generally speaking one would look at and go. Perhaps Society thinks Mike. Tyson has paid his debt and. has been quote. Unquote rehabilitated I. Don't know, but you know in these times. Are People going to take a look at what might is did very very well documented, and well. People have a new opinion on Mike Tyson organ. Will they look back and go he? Paid his debt, and and that's it so I guess we'll see what happens going forward, but I have not heard as far as things going with. With Mike Tyson one, hundred, seventy, play, one, eight, hundred, eight, seven, eight, seven, five, nine. You can also tweet being Agim, Valley. I've talked about this before I've said this before. we do not deserve reneging. She's so incredibly incredibly talented and I love for now. And let me. Let me, say this. I am a happily married man. Rene Young obviously happily married woman It would not be age appropriate, many many things. I want you to understand that while Rene Young is certainly. An attractive human being very easy on the eyes. I. Don't I four, renee young or when I say that I love when a young it's. It's nothing of that ilk. Renee Young. He's a supremely talented broadcaster, and I speak from years of experience when I say this, she is one of if not the best studio host I've ever seen. And she could have from what I understand gone to ESPN or had other opportunities, but because she's such a wrestling fan. She is chosen this path and she is so good. And what she does when it's hosting pre-games or hosting, W W we backstage or any of these, these like I said these studio environments now. Granted. Her play-by-play was not the best. She was Kinda thrown to the wolves and look. We all have pluses and minuses, and we all have gifts. We all things that we can certainly work on and. I don't know. Maybe you could have been coached better. Maybe she could have been put in a more nurturing environment or an environment where shoot have more opportunities and not have to fight for air time with more experienced people when it comes to play by play, but when it comes to a studio show, she is so good presentation. At helping her co hosts and the people on the panel and presenting guests had bring out the best in guests, and not only that. She is also excellent at knowing when to back off now. She's a wrestling fan, and honestly I don't know exactly all of our wrestling Phantom when she started a lot of favorites, what her era is, I'm not overly familiar. I don't Stalk Renee young in that regard, I just have supreme respect for her abilities, but when WWe backstage, for example, when Ricky steamboat was on a few weeks ago, and he was walking the camera around his wrestling, then and showing all of the pictures she just let it play out and let Ricky steamboat ricky steamboat. The show a few weeks ago when she was talking to A. Heart and seeing punk was on the show and see him Pong, and Bret Hart or having moments together, and talking about everything and seeing punk and I mean this is the most positive way was fan buoying all over Bret Hart it was fantastic and Rene young was smart enough again to be a great house, and just be quiet. Lay back in the play out now that in her case less was more. So when I say, we don't deserve a young. We do not deserve renee young. She is so good at what she does and how she does. And to hear now that she is come down..

ready for your it's a good point to really doing the math on it everything by Thai guy get out of my way kids god okay all right Hey people are an item I can explain this so maybe someone else can for me because I don't I wouldn't I this would not be what I would do there is a group of people who are lining up to swim in the Chicago River next year well there's so bomb that they canceled it this year this is the guy Doug McConnell is and his co organizer don McDonald which should be a very very confusing Doug McDonald on McDonald how to organize a two and a half mile open water swim in the Chicago River ill for September of twenty twenty it has been done they said in nearly one hundred years there it then there may be a good reason for that and imagine in and a hundred years ago is because people fell in the couldn't get out we don't say that yeah that was a horrible situation there isn't defined path that you're supposed to take to get something like this approved so I can stand by the city department for a little betwixt well they're supposedly from this September and so the city kind of came in at the last minute and said no it's not gonna happen this summer for the September this call center for two thousand dollars is helping the companies and buildings along the river will take part in this and he's got some BL also has some charities right they alas and some other things that are that that are billion do you want to do this for and the proposed path now some of them okay then how is goes because this is not the prettiest part of the river and think it's from ping Tom a moral park which is down in Chinatown and then up along the way past Roosevelt you know like that where that all the construction is right now that's actually to Sir empty land along the banks of what they call the seventy eight yep and then you get into downtown that's pretty yeah right we get it down everyone kayaks right and then you make the turn and you basically stop at like Clark street which I don't understand that's not the good that's that's the part of the river at least the people we've talked about the river that's the part of the river that is not the freshest water because the freshest water is further east where yeah the lake flows into the river because of the lock so you don't get too close the locks that's true that's a very separate issue that's why we have personal injury attorneys but that's yeah right does not is not gonna be the freshest part in the interesting part here is they're saying that this wasn't because of the on the helpfulness of the river that it was more because they were concerned that there were boat traffic and currents in the river that could pose problems for the summers this is a bad idea under all circumstances when the what I'm sorry I I wish him the best way to get to the lake no there's there's a king places to swim right I mean I mean over the lake is the lakes got its own problems I don't go in the bath tub or playpen or whatever they call that because that's got weird currents but there are there are some areas in the lake we can do some open you know water swimming if you wanna do that you're not supposed to go in the water the plant and everyone's in the place say every week I see boomerangs of girls jumping off boats in the hammer and the last that that particular area is that there's a swimming lane in there between how street bridge and beech and oak street but you got to be very careful on that because there are people that jump in around the Chicago Avenue underpass and try to swim across the aisle park and they'll make it because it's a lot further than it looks that's true and there is a current there's a site current to take you straight out to the other side in navy pier americana rips around yes tell you know anything yes I just the site is sitting at the football Lauren lack of yeah in the in a little kiddie pool area just kind of soak in there on the other while trying to swim that yeah the the play pen is not to that's the way they have and plus you know like on a Saturday or Sunday each of the war the playpen you don't know what's going to but when you pull back out you know what's going to be on your toes yeah or attached to your to your your swimsuit what is the friend bro hanging on to me good app and that could be too it and there's a lot of hats to the back there you know that's like they are not allowed to go into the play pen area on a boat this is the area between high street beach and the the S. there that the turn at lake shore drive you're not allowed to go in there unless you have your head to the back rules are rules people right head to the back can you gotta have you gotta be you have to have rented your boat RB on your friends both the claim if you're about and it was fake captain right I think I think this is a guy that it turns out the guy was actually ran to get of chartering the boat illegally to you yeah he's not actual Ciara cavs is on a cell phone yeah we'll take you out there right I can totally take yeah don't worry about it even they give these met the guy on the interwebs right Sir there is some apps somewhere some say fate captain the fake captain app Cappy every to the back I don't know what this out and then you and then you got you got to get out there and then you got to make sure that that there's more alcohol than could be expected in the back eliminate for the beat out for the day for the people to be drinking in annexing it's we want Spanky I found her top but not about gosh Tommy I mean so backwards well the water I like when the when the tile the boats up next to each other and then people walk across and then there five six boats away and then they can give an Interpol leaves or they had too much to drink it really shouldn't even attempt to write and they're on the wrong vote at that point yeah they'll go back with.
