Podcast Excerpt from Led Zeppelin - "Achilles Last Stand"
"So in september of nineteen seventy five robert plant still in a wheelchair joined jimmy page in southern california to write some new songs bass player john. Paul jones and drummer. John bonham would join them not long after once. They finished rehearsing most of the material in california. The band then relocated to music land studios in munich germany to record the album in november. The challenge was that the rolling stones had already booked the same studio for december. Which left led zeppelin with about two weeks to record the whole album. Jimmy page who not only played all of the guitar parts but also wrote virtually all of the music and produced. The album was working eighteen to twenty hours a day on it in the end they ran out of time. And jimmy had to ask mick jagger for two more days. In the studio to finish up jagger gave him the two days and jimmy page almost by himself recorded all of the overdubbed seven songs worth in one single night. And then jimmy. An engineer keith. Harwood mixed the whole album. The next day the album would be named presence and it was released in march of nineteen. Seventy six robert plant described this struggle to make the presence album as our stand against everything our stand against the elements against chance. We were literally fighting against existence itself. Unlike every other led zeppelin album. There are almost no acoustic instruments on presence at all. No keyboards no mandolins or recorders. No acoustic ballads. This is an album dominated by jimmy page's electric guitar wizardry and achilles last stand may be the pinnacle of his guitar playing and arranging genius achilles. Last stand is the first track on the album opening the record with a slow fade in on jimmy. Page's guitar played on his legendary gibson. Les paul nicknamed number one. The part is doubled and then panned left and right almost imperceptibly in the background there. You can hear john. Bonham hit a few notes on a symbol and with one hit of a snare drum into the song.

"Welcome memo lights to another round of the book views. My name is karna. I'm here to bring you the book reviews to help you. Transcend beyond your mere mortality. This is the end of the book month in today. I have for you my final book. It is the goads book of fish by richard flanagan. This book was published in two thousand and one so a bit more recently. And it's about four hundred fifty pages. In length it tells the tale of william buelow gold. Who was an english convict transported to. Tasmania also known as van demons. Land at the time and who becomes enamored with fishes. It's narrated by the aforementioned billy gold. Although the first chapter is a sort of discovery of this book of fishes and then a recreation of the book of fishes so sort of book within a book type tribe. We've seen this multiple times before. It starts off with billy gold in england and then making some decisions as being an artist and he has almost forced into the autistic type of world before. Doing some silly things gets transported into. Ben demons land. Tasmania and then more silly. Things occur and essentially sentenced to convict. Life says torches as imprisoning says beatings. All of these bad things happening to him. He tries to make his own life better through his autistic shoots and his entangled with some other characters in the book as such as the surgeon. Who is the one who gets them. Started on this book of fish this fascination of fishes and then towards the end of the novel he escapes. His confines. Goes on a journey gets recaptured. And then as almost put to death before being transformed into a fish of all things. Most of the action takes place on sarah's island which is an actual penal colony which is an actual jail where they would send convicts to do hard work and actually became a shipbuilding place as well. The island itself is tiny couple hundred meters in length and less that in with as well and the era it was set in the eighteen. Twenty s to the eighteen thirties. I believe so. This is when some technologies would just getting invented but it was still really berbar in sort of world a very brutal hosh

'Locker Room Syndrome' Drives Men to Think Big
"There's actually this. Study is a study by annabelle chan and they looked at data from forty three different countries with men. Eighteen seventy six years old and what they found was that they're actually more concerned about. Their penis is outside of the bedroom so they called it locker room syndrome. So they're kind of more concerned about what other people think as opposed to actually concerned about how pena size affects sexual function or sexual performance or how they're perceived sexually all. I would definitely agree with that. I remember the first time playing hockey and showering in the in the locker room and being so uncomfortable about it. But i played on a competitive team and we traveled and your parents eventually the point where they saying. I don't want this stinky thirteen year old kid in my car on a wednesday night for two hours reading. Take a shower after the game So then you started taking a shower and it was just this awkwardness where you're in the room. And you know perhaps some of the guy and again. This is a long time ago. Some of the guys which our some of them wouldn't and there's that initial kind of discomfort of getting naked in front of other men and again. This is a while ago. And i feel very differently now and then the funny thing is is. I remember my grandfather growing up. Who was very quote unquote macho and and all those sorts of things saying to me. One day when i- cowered in a room getting changed putting on a swimsuit. He's like we all have the same stuff he's he said. Just no one's focusing on it. Just get changed. It's not a big deal. You don't have to go hide in the corner but it's this weird being pulled in different directions. You're supposed to cover up all the time you're not supposed to show it. You're supposed to talk about it. You're supposed to say how big it like. These silly games that we play and again this is just reflecting on my experience. Grew up playing hockey and being a kid and the whole peanuts conundrum. If you
Connell Barrett on Being Authentically You
"Men who battle self-doubt don't know how to flirt and who just basically walk through the world being like, hey, I'm not good enough as I am. I need to pretend like I'm some kind of alpha or some kind of bad boy. And at the time, the mistake I made was I put on different masks. And I would try them out on women on dates. I would be the bad boy. I would be alpha male. I would be I had a date once with a woman had a huge crush on and she liked outdoorsy rugged guys. So I pretended to be some outdoorsy rugged guy and started making up stories about swimming with sharks. She's like how on Earth could do ya off the line and I have a terrible Poker Face on my forehead became this slip and slide of sweat and I don't even know if she knew that, I was lying to try to impress her but she could definitely feel like something was off and it wasn't until years later. I made this really dramatic shift leaning into what I call radical authenticity, which is about really leaning into who you are getting in touch with your core best self and not showing women that guy and it wasn't until I said, you know what? I'm just going to show women that nice nerdy theater. Musical theater, loving hipster, gaiam and Thursday. They like that guy and that made me almost instantly confident and charismatic, not all women of course the women don't like that type but women who like that authentic self who you show them going to love you. Yes. So that's essentially what I teach I say. Don't try to be all things to all people know who you are and like really lead into it. You mentioned the ice cream example, for me, it's like don't be a watered-down wine. Spritzer be a shot of the eighteen-year-old, good stuff, the scotch give her a glass of that, that distilled you and then if she likes that she's going to catch a bus.

Radio Host Jennifer Horn on Larry Elder's Chances of Winning Recall
"Where is larry larry's right at the top. But what's even more important because it's all about question number one. Do you want to recall gavin newsom. It's a to question ballot. I one do you want to recall him. And there is such a tightening in the polls. I honestly didn't even expect this but the l. a. times and berkeley got together. They did a pull that found. Forty seven percent of california voters supported recalling gavin. Newsom fifty percent oppose it. But it's a three point margin of error this is this is neck and neck right now. It's split down the middle. And you know these. Pollsters always oversample kratz in the state. So i am very encouraged. And i think a lot of it had to do with the secretary of state trying to keep larry elder off the ballot and we were on the air last week together at this very time when a judge ruled in favor of larry elder he couldn't have purchased better publicity. So larry elder. According to this survey the same survey is ahead of all of the other candidates and he is in. He's got a pretty good commanding lead. Actually he's got sixteen percent of the votes according to this new poll and then he's followed by john cox and kevin faulkner who were tied at six percents. This this is the way thing. And i love it. I mean it's poetic justice for the democrats that you have this system where it's one ballot. That has the recall question. And then all the candidates on the ballot so with a sixteen with a sixteen percent margin or not margin. but we're leading with with twenty other candidates. Larry could win easily. Absolutely all you need is really. I keep going back to about eighteen to twenty percent of the vote.
Larry Elder: Will Enough Californians Vote for a Recall?
"La times poll came out uc. Berkeley poll came out And i have eighteen points. My next challenger has a ten points. caitlyn jenner has around three. And i'm not dissing by republican opponents because it's a two step real simple deal unless fifty percent plus one vote rules that govern distance should recall recalled. It doesn't matter what the rest of us have. I'm pretty confident. I'm gonna finish with a higher vote tally in my other republican rivals. The question is whether or not enough californians are gonna vote for the recall and this poll came out this morning shows. Forty seven percents are in favor of the recall. and fifty three percent are not That's almost within the margin of error and that's about a five point improvement on our side compared to just two weeks ago. People are mad about the crime. They're mad about the mandates you're mad about the crappy schools that people saw for the first is because of the virtual learning that was going on. They're mad about the cost of living. You add it all up and it's perfect storm for getting rid of this
Are Unvaccinated Migrants to Blame for Recent COVID Spikes?
"I work in a medium with a whole bunch of smart people. I've known the great one as he's affectionately called mark levin for years mark last night was on fox. News asked a great question. A terrific question. A with with all the cdc guidance about masks about mandatory vaccines about all of it. What are you doing about the illegals. Here's mark. I have a question. For the cdc busy issuing all kinds of orders to american citizens vaccinated citizens are supposed to wear masks. Don't you understand when you tell people that they're not going to get vaccinated on the one hand you say hurry up and get vaccinated on the other hand we're gonna treat you as if you're not vaccinated that's not science that's stupidity and we've had a lot of stupidity at a federal scientists and medical directors over the course of the last eighteen months but you wanna know big stupidity. We've an open southern border. People are pouring into this country so fast we don't know how many covert cases among migrants and the rio grande valley sector surge. Nine hundred percent of the border numbers. Continue to rise. We don't know how many illegal aliens have it. We know they're not tested. We know they're poor. They're coming from poorer countries that they don't have access to vaccines. Maybe that's the problem. Maybe because our southern border is open by design people coming across the border situation. We're being overwhelmed. You look at the red map. The cdc director puts out there. What do you see. The southeastern united states is getting hit. Hardest southern california's getting hit hardest. How come they're not getting hit in north carolina. North dakota how come. They're not getting hit on the northern border the way they are on the southern border. Well we have some ideas about this. Don't we now the. Cdc is so out of control that it ordered not long ago landlords not to raise rates or to to remove tenants and a federal court. Said you're the. Cdc you don't have the power to do that. Hey cdc joe by never question for you for health purposes cdc. Why don't you issue orders to secure the southern border so we can make sure people who are coming across. Don't have the virus and aren't spreading in the united
Sam Darnold's Time Is Coming
"I'm gonna start with arguably my most controversial take of the day sam darnold. What's the heartache. And if he is he gonna go sir. Not darnold in slinging. Sam darnold three year career. He's never finished inside of the top. Twenty five at the quarterback position. He's also never thrown for over thirty one hundred yards or twenty touchdowns in a year his career completion percentage sits at fifty nine percent in addition if we look at last year specifically. It's his worst year of his career. Twenty two hundred yards through the air nine touchdowns and eleven interceptions in twelve games. If your take is that sam darnold is bad like you. Just prove that. He's bad like. I don't know where you're going with this but darnold is bad. You're trying to say is gonna finish outside of qb. Thirty two sam darnold careers. Been absolutely terrible. Nobody is going to argue that including myself. It would be pretty easy for somebody to up his career as of bust in move on and in fact. Almost everybody is already done that rightfully so sam. I am one of the few people that still truly believes in you. I'm here to tell you why showtime darnold is going to finish the season as a top twelve quarterback showtime where nicknames coming from you top twelve top twelve quarterback darnold the prospect in darnold product have been polar opposite so far. But let's remember that he was a number three overall pick in the two thousand eighteen draft. He went ahead of josh allen and lamar jackson. The reason he was drafted ahead of them is because scouts were drooling over his size his arm strength and his playmaking ability on the day of the two thousand eighteen draft dane brugge a well-known senior analyst for nfl draft scout listed darnold as the clear number one quarterback in the draft. Obviously that hasn't been the case but the point that i'm trying to make is a talent was there and i know space jam to just came out and unless the monster stolas talents. I'm confident in saying that. Those talents are still in that
Tourists or Terrorists? Officer Rejects GOP Lawmaker’s Characterization of Capitol Rioters

Should You Care about BMI?
"We look at bmi. It was first developed back in the eighteen thirties so many years ago and it was actually never ever intended for clinical use it was created as a statistical exercise and again never intended to be used and medicine but as we all know today it's widely used all over in the healthcare setting and it was developed using wealthy white european men as you can imagine this is not representative of our population. It's not representative of our different body sizes. Different sexes different races. So this and in of itself can absolutely be problematic. It doesn't distinguish between fat muscle skeletal tissue or fluid weight. And this is why you'll see some athletes for example who might have higher muscle mass and are considered to be overweight or obese but are actually in fact very healthy and when you look at their lab values. They're all within normal range. So here's just a few issues when we look at bmi being used as a measure for health right because it just doesn't take into account all of these important things that we really do need to be looking
How Much Does a Wedding Actually Cost?
"Experts project that twenty twenty one wedding costs will rebound what they were in two thousand nineteen if not higher so let's take a look at the twenty nineteen numbers. According to wedding wire the average cost of a wedding reception per couple was around. Twenty eight thousand dollars. Although i'd venture to say it was probably a little higher. Because according to the not here are the average costs involved with a wedding reception. Buckle up because it's a long one ten thousand five hundred dollars for a reception. Venue two thousand four hundred dollars for a photographer. Eighteen hundred dollars for a video for two thousand dollars for florist sixteen hundred dollars for a wedding dress. Three thousand seven hundred dollars for a wedding band twelve hundred dollars for a reception. Dj seventy dollars per person for catering and the average wedding in two thousand nineteen had one hundred and thirty one guests. I guess it's an odd number because of all the singles who want to go home or at least go to bed with a new plus one and that brings the total cost of food to nine thousand one hundred and seventy dollars. The rehearsal dinner costs on average eighteen. Hundred dollars five hundred ninety dollars for the invitations. One hundred dollars for the hairstylist hundred bucks for the makeup artist. Four hundred bucks for the party favors and last but certainly not least five hundred dollars for the cake that is a total of thirty five thousand nine hundred and seventy dollars to put that into perspective that the lot more than the down payment on one hundred and seventy five thousand dollar house or tuition for a year and a half at florida state university. It's a huge chunk of change. And again i would still argue that. Those estimates are probably low. I mean shout out to the bride. Who's spending one hundred ten bucks on a hairstylist. But if you're living in la you're probably spending five times that amount which brings me to an important point of course. These averages vary widely depending on factors like location. What time of year and even what day of the week it is. You're tying the
How Marketing and Communication Teams in Large Companies Prepared for EU GDPR?
"How does that get into your corporate communication space. Because when you're communicating externally communicating on websites. does it impact. Does it even change the language. Because i have worked with some companies very even the entire diet. Corporate communication strategy has been adapted to save need to demonstrate privacy and brick or trust centric language. Does it impact in your view. Or i think Many look at over the last. I would say five years right because it came into force in two thousand eighteen where we started preventing probably about two years ago that from any number of and and Of course after it was coming to force your periodic audits and other things to make sure we are compliant on all fronts Like any other company you can order changes in how reba capturing data processing data you know.

Let's give it to whoever is on the right or to intern or whatever it is and we'll we'll comply with just about comply with the bare minimum. I think was was very different than that way.

"This becomes a thing i hope. He's like norm from cheers but at every bar in south florida every bar that he walks into. And cody all of a sudden. There's just mob by people constantly trying to buy him. This would be the logical conclusion of his career and burnished reputation as they beer drinker. Does that happened to him. Often chris people recognize him by him things when he goes places in. Yes i would say. The in locally at a local bar sports bar felix sports bars and sporting events or the really. The only places. I don't know about you guys that i tend to get. Hey because you know it. Just that demographic but yes that does happen to him a lot but even getting recognized in a pandemic. they didn't come over to us. Normally they would come over. And there'd be like a bunch of group hugs. It was just a beer from a distance. It was perfect. What does he do. He always accepts. I'm assuming right because that's a kind of like a slippery slope right like 'cause if you don't accept then you're kinda rude of annual like the jurors were sent greg beer. And he didn't drink it. What you know and greatest too cheap to do something like this but have you ever been tempted to like whoa after getting recognized at a bar. The guy the magnanimous guy. Who's buying drinks for the table. Buying around for other people go into the bartender be like. Hey that table super nice to me but next put it on my tap. I actually thought you're going to be the guideline slips out and like when they're done like their tablets completely picked another great one another great one that i've always. I've always thought about doing that. But i've always felt like it would be weird or wouldn't be well received or wouldn't have the intended effects of making me seem like this incredibly magnanimous person. My concern with that is though like that. Seems like a very kind nice gesture right and then you leave and then like you go a day or two later and you check your your your statement at the bank and it's like four hundred dollars later. They added drinks to them. Yeah and it's just like why i totally missed. Read this situation. They seem like they're wrapping things up. And then they ordered a whole like four more rounds and a bunch of apps and then this is not like thank you for the beer. But like i paid six thousand dollars because you guys had a nine out for forty. Just tell them. That current rounded currently drinking predominates. Now you gotta do it. Like i mean that's a discount off of everything they had. I would absolutely you're swinging your spring. You bleep. you can't can't swing all the way you know like maybe like a swing now but the story so better if you do it without telling them like aegis they find out later on but also then you're kind of trusting the server whoever it is to not charge them for that round especially if you're not there because only one person knows that you did this. The one thing about leaving. It's a bit like throwing money in the starbucks jar. And we're like you wanna make eye contact. You need to make sure they know i like. You've held the money over the tip jar before for at least to be in the peripheral view. So there's a certain amount of like you do want to get the credit for him is that that's an interesting one. Is that a jerk. Move by the person tipping like. Why am i jerk for wanting the person to see i want the no idea of the tip is for them to look at me and say that person appreciated the job that yes so like. That's why i'm doing. And i'm not doing 'cause it's like. I know that i gave this dollar. It's just more of the. Hey i'm a recognition giving you the recognition. So i want you to have it. But that's like oh you don't you make sure to put your name. I always knew. I always put my name. Meaning we need to de stigmatize one in credit right there is no why not no but also like you give to a cause till like. Let's say a friend is doing one of those gofundme means and then you do it anonymously. And they don't see it then they don't know that you care about them and contributed money to their cause like there is a certain amount of not. You know what what's wrong with wanting credit. That's tipping at starbucks personal. I don't know how that works when you do that online. Does the person receiving it not know so like it's just like i don't know where any of this game i think they do. Actually i think i think like even if it's not publicly available i think the person who's running go fund me sees the name person that's good to know because i always put my name because i'm like i need them to know them to know. Go it just them knowing. Now let me ask you question on a on a popular go fund me like one. That is on social media. People are seeing an do you scroll through the donations to see what would be an adequate amount to give like. Where do i fall in the dan le category or do i fall in the You know a a lesser category in terms of givers. I have kind of a bone to pick with that situation right. Because you people do that. Right you go through. And you're like oh. This person donated. That person donated this person that person right and you see like wow they donated. Let's just say a thousand dollars ryan. You're going to look bad if donate twenty five dollars right but then if you start playing like the proportion game it's like well why twenty five dollars is really a higher percentage than someone donating like a thousand dollars that said you know like a rock star. Let's say i'm in a thing. And i'm like looking like wow lady. Gaga donated a thousand dollars like. I don't want people to be like well billions. No lady gaga. You know what i mean. And the only donated thirty bucks but lady gaga makes tens of millions of dollars a year. Like what's a thousand dollars to lady gaga. You know what i mean. Yeah you gotta find your level the nfl your level in that context. And sometimes it's lady gaga. And sometimes it's billy. Yeah i mean you kind of undercutting lady gaga considering that she spent five hundred thousand dollars to get her dog back well not on this particular hypothetical go fund me. She only donate one thousand dollars right now. Okay i'm just saying in this hypothetical you like code unease from under not to go full. Dan feeling bad for not taking a full dan feeling bad for micky arison during the pandemic. But don't you feel bad that like there's no amount of money that jeff bezos could donate without going. That's not enough like if you donate it. A million dollars to a worthy cause people will wind you donate ten million donated. Ten million go wants to donate one hundred million like like. There is no amount of money that would ever be enough. Let's just the entire some of his wealth. Yeah all of and then people would say. Oh you did for the taxes exactly. I gotta be honest. i haven't spent much time thinking..

"I would say at best but that you have to change and you have to entering it seventh and he's so is the end of his prime. Put it this way last year in club soccer. He scored more goals than he played in Games so I think he had fifty goals and forty eight so awesome and I leased over there. He's not bigger than the game no ones bigger than the game is the world's most popular game but over here and mls there was a time where I felt like tiger woods could start his own tour and be bigger than the PGA tour because has a lot of people who created the PGA tour with Tiger Woods and messy might be that guy if he came over while still being great yet which would have to happen quickly. David David Beckham by certain reports might have already been on that moving onto the sport that I think we might all agree. This is a sport that needs to try it because hockey. Its future is a little bit uncertain doesn't have any ESPN television contract really outside of what's going on plus and it's really drifted as long as I've been alive. Hockey used to be discussed the everywhere that you would turn if you wanted to go your sports. Hockey has a good youth system and the infrastructure rings the same everywhere. A lot of these arenas China's are comparable. Why do you think David Hockey might be the best case study for this well the reason why they're number four as as a major sport in some could argue. They're going down to number. I five or number six is TV revenue they do not have a national TV deal you sort of summarily dismissing not espn plus the fact is when it was the NHL on NBC that was not Hoti Big moneymaker for the NHL basically just NBC gave them time an NBA. NHL Got to sell the commercials etc.. I'm familiar with that sort sort of deal and I think the marlins kind of have that radio broadcast deal to where they're essentially leasing it to sell their own spots. I think they're national. TV Now national realty deal now is better and it's also massive in Canada so they they make some national TV money but it's not nearly on the level of the other. It's not even close which is why then value of the teams games in the NHL is lower than the value. It really makes perfect sense. It trickles down over television. It's all about money and the money comes from television so the first thing the NFL shell has to do is sit down with a TV partner whatever that could be Amazon so you talking about Basil's coming in and actually making a difference if he cuts to deal with the NHL where he says that we are. We're GONNA make you a major player and give each team an extra thirty million dollars in revenue but it's GonNa come with relegation you will have relegation the NHL. It's the easiest easiest sport to talk them into a considering that their future so uncertain and they have so much upside interested value that if you could tell them that you're GonNa have expansion you are GonNa have international no expansion and we are going to combine European Leagues and these in the in the Baltic area which already have a pretty great infrastructure famous. I think it can work. I right I mean you bring cage L. Teams in and all of a sudden. You're building a pyramid of teams. That are sort of going up down. You're right. I mean I I really thought of the terms but it is perfect because you're right they. They need a hook. I mean even you think about their schedule. Their schedule is concurrent with the NBA so I as as you know marginal hockey fan on a night in which there are playoff games on there are some nights. Regular hockey is tonight. It's fantastic but most nights I'm choosing the NBA like needs a hook. It needs something that separates it from the other sports. It's a for me one of the major reasons why it's not as popular because I don't think as a you know sports debate culture. We have the language for hockey like we don't know in Canada. They do but like we. I don't know how hot take Hockey Ryan but but at the same time you're right it does need a hook to separated from the other quote major sport. I would switch the calendar up a little bit but you know there's a it's. It's almost become a cliche. Every year. The hockey playoffs are show tremendous and you see it in the ratings ratings playoff hockey or a lot better such they are a lot better than the regular season hockey because has playoff hockey with these steaks. It's just so much more dramatic with promotion relegation which is my thought all along because you make meaningless games meaningful. haughey could really benefit from right. Can You imagine playoff relegation hockey right like game seven and hockey. I I've argued to the end of my dying in day. I was in baseball forever and I love the NBA's. My true love game seven overtime hockey the greatest sports moment that there could ever be. I also think it's a union that's probably most inclined to listen to some of these because even some of the great players you look at their contracts and it's just like wow that person's so great yet. It's peanuts compared to do some of these major. League baseball had as much money yeah revenue to pass around. I think we all agree that Jeff bezos needs to be at the forefront of change. I'm calling Lauren. Right now tanking and you didn't actually hear you. You didn't actually actually it's just hard to fake did actually here when you guys did it but I forget what you said so I had to come out of that acting like I just heard it. I hope you enjoyed.

"What do you make of Adam silver sort of flirting with this idea domestically will the reason he came up with the Development League is that he wanted leverage when he was negotiating with the NCAA so the so there's always a backstory it to every single thing that anybody does pretty machiavellian but it really is true and it's what baseball is trying to do with the minor leagues with NCAA NCA does WanNa play ball with baseball and in and do what baseball wants them. They won't take college players and they'll make incentivize high school players to come to the big leagues. Adam silver's a smart man because he's got the international fandom and the international money that baseball in the NFL CRAVE NFL goes to London now. Where do they go four times a year the amount of money that the NBA makes overseas sees is X. Times 10x what NBA AN MB do because they've got marketable players who actually succeed here how how many European NFL players are there. I mean there's a Scottish earn. My Cleveland Browns Norwegian kicker on your fingers. I Yes yeah okay in Major League baseball the number of European the number and I'm not talking about his hand. I'm talking and then over like you guys. He's got the day off on cigarettes. Six million people had twelve fingers well six on each hand and toast really yes he does yes. The toes is a bit of a revelation. He's looking at twenty four or large you shake his hand and we you always laugh laugh at each other and it's not making fun of him and it's not politically incorrect because he purposefully bisley would tickle his little finger on your hand way to say yes an extra. We asked him a bunch of questions because we were fascinated about this years ago on the Lebatardshow show and we asked him if you if you're eating ribs and you get sauce on finger you look at the answers of your pinky. You'll look the ultra conversations nations the six fingered so. I can't even remember why we're talking about Alfonseca but European players now go to the NBA yeah well and not even close go oh but are stars like in Serbia. Nicola Yokich is a star Star in Greece. We saw here in Miami with the Dallas Mavericks game to play the Miami he the two biggest Slovenian stars in there there was like a traveling entourage of Slovenians that came to my mind is like three thousand of them that created the best atmosphere all year like and also kind of wonder too if they're almost leaving money on the table sometimes because they're championships being decided to am three and four am European standard time like. I wonder if there's actually more opportunity for them to grow worldwide. I've tried in baseball to get afternoon afternoon. World Series Games that it can be prime time overseas when each row was plane. I wanted the games to be in prime time in Tokyo and the Union always had had an issue because players in baseball do not like waking up early at all. They hate afternoon games hate and I think getting back to your point about what Adam silver is doing with the Domestic Cup. I think you hear you're a lot of players going well. What's the point of that when you brought it up here on the show Stugotz goes well. Why would I be interested in that like what what ultimately is the hook and I think a lot of what happens between all of this is when you introduce relegation to owners it's well. How's IT GONNA hurt me. How my incentivized to do this and ultimately. Is it worth breaking the structure of the Spore. We talk talk about this with reducing regular season games like I've heard a genie bus quoted saying under my watch. I am never voting for less than eighty two games. We need to preserve the history of the sport art and it's like it makes sense in the world to not play eighty two games but because of people like her that go. We're not changing things that ultimately is probably for me. The biggest impediment even beyond on making it economically feasible beyond saying this will be great is well. What do we have to change for well. Do you think she's full of it when she says the history of preserve the money in my pocket translate slate that about the history of the game right what she's saying is what all the large market teams say when we talked about going from one hundred sixty two games just one hundred and fifty four the teams who were not in favor of losing four home games where the team selling out their home games teams like the moms were like yes. We want fewer home games. We're we're willing to play internationally and lose home games because we can't sell eighty one games worth of product well this sort of touches on this slightly but I've always been curious. I think less games is is the way to go. The players certainly want it and I think putting Look Sixteen Game Seasons worked out for the NFL quite well over here. Why did you always get push back on that idea do they automatically assume it's less money when he put more value on some of these games and you could always have the option that Adam silver trying to create right now as talk about reducing games in the NBA by no no no. I'm giving you eighty two games sell. It's just I'm giving you a different variation of that. Some of these games have different values local TV you sit down with Fox in. La Now sinclair and those those networks were billions of dollars because every single day during the summer when there's nothing else on the are winning the primetime time slot and they are getting more subsidies than if they were you know reruns of keeping up with the Kardashians and then you look at for example I mean we're we're talking about less games because we live in a place where in you know the Marlins and the dolphins and the panthers don't sell out their games there. You know television. Ratings locally are fairly low so we're going. Let's have less less solidify. The Saint Louis Cardinals sell out eighty one home games every year. They have no problem with people watching it on television. It's more than enough for them. But for me you draw in more people will by there being less of it right you make each individual vent more impactful but at the same time you're also you're you're also going to earn saying. I'm reducing your near to revenue because because we think in the long term we can make them more players. So what we said is. We'll go to one fifty four. The players want one fifty four. That's fine but guess what you're now going to make you know you're losing losing five percent of your of your salary. The average salary will go down. Five percent of the players said no go but the dolphins eight games they play. Are they sell out every again. They announced sixty five thousand for their first game this past week but I I don't know if that like did a lot of them. Were blue purple yeah but but I don't mean roll all the C- colors yeah I mean th they announce a sellout. I mean you're wealthy comers. I think David reveal that he actually bought lots of those tickets on percents. I'm just saying that the the even sort of eight games for the dolphins. There's still a problem when there's nothing. The team is playing for for right correct with relegation. They'd be playing for exactly which is a good thing so what I WANNA do here. I want to look at each major sport and will include soccer because that's where this whole all ideas and concept is borne of and more people are most familiar with it and sort of go through the pros and cons of y woodwork and why wouldn't work for that specific league and then maybe we can settle in on a good case study here in America. Nfl I think we're all in agreement. There's no way we're talking. That's born to doing anything sort of different because their business model is working all too well and they have a free minor league system the reason why I think the NFL should consider it is think about for example the quarterback position offensive line where they go. They're not ready to play in the NFL even after coming from college why win the NFL WANNA put together their Minor League where they're coaching up their own players and their own talent but you're right. I mean as long as you're getting it for free as long as college. Football is a massive massive industry. They're never going to go. I'm not GonNa let you guys off the hook because I could say the same thing for every major sport right. Everybody's making money in everybody's team is going up in value but let's try to get the NFL well they are and what would be the greatest reason to avoid tanking and collecting draft picks the way to do it is you can say that there's a maximum number of draft picks that you can have each year so the dolphins collecting all picks in two thousand twenty. It wouldn't be allowed so maybe they don't make the trade that they made and the second thing I would say to the NFL is listen. You've got to win four games. That's it you can go four and twelve in baseball. That's the equivalent of going forty one twenty yeah so at Tanking Baseball team loses one hundred ten games like that'd be a lot remember. That's an NFL team going five and eleven. I don't even know how you implement that outside of collusion amongst the teams because there's a penalty what happens when you don't win enough off games relegated okay so maybe in the NFL the the solve for tanking is either limited draft picks or instituting some sort of financial penalty which relegation sorta does right outside of the fresh matchups. You still keep some of the properties that is where I would be an NF. I I think I think the NFL could solve their tanking issue without introducing relegation. Where are you basically get rid of the college draft and turn new players coming into league into free agency and you wouldn't be incentivized to lose because you have to create an attractive situation that a young I'm player one again. Everyone's sort of push back on that concept is what the then this just becomes a believe measuring contests amongst the NFL owners will. What are you watching every Sunday. That's what essentially essentially this all is. How do you get to go to buffalo by saying you'RE GONNA start for my team by paying them more money than you than allowed to pay play other players okay. So what you're saying is get rid of the CAP. Get rid of everybody free agent yeah. I couldn't be more in that sport free agent dollars. Don't always mean success. Look Daniel Snyder's been on a treadmill trying to do that. It's a there's injuries years. Yeah you also wonder what his team would look like if he had the shackle of the salary recap off right where if instead of being being forced to keep his team under two hundred million. I think that's with the salary cap is vitas decided when you're on. It's been four hundred million on my team and see what happens. Let's move on now now to the NBA which actually does have some of these restrictions on being able to trade multiple draft picks. How do we make promotion relegation work in the NBA for me. It would would be really hard because the talent gap between the best. NBA Player and the Best G. League player is so massive that I think if you just brought autophagy league team into the NBA they would get destroyed whereas we see teams in soccer all the time come up from the championship and hold their own without really signing that many top there are so many any good soccer players that can create value and so many and the coaching because of the Lower Divisions Yeah coaching and soccer is really really good. I think a lot of people people view second division third as Minor League. It's not like it's fully professional high level players playing in the English championship for instance that come up and hold their own I for me the the biggest impediment would be that the G. League is so far away from being. Mba quality that what happens when you bring a team up and they just go in seventy two. It's such a great counterpoint with trump in right here because I think you're being myopic Chris Wittingham because you got the G..

Where can people get your work. Yes I'm now working at two in which is univision sports network working taking a mostly in English. Law People think that it's a Spanish only network but they're going to start producing a lot of soccer in English so that is my primary assignment now yeah so. I like cool things. I'M A fan. I WanNa see cool things. I'm a huge soccer fan as many of our shows fans. No I love promotion relegation but I don't have all the logistics cleared. I just WanNa see Rad things six and David's here to give voice to what the owners horseback might be. I just want to be general from it and start macro. I WANNA know why and I want you to articulate this very clearly. Why why do you like promotion relegation a soccer fan. What gets you going? Is it the fact that if a team doesn't perform they get penalized or is it. The fact that the team that's down in the dumps can lift itself up and it gets proven through promotion. I think those are really cool aspects of it a team getting promoted is obviously A. Oh cool cause for celebration you get fresh match ups every year but my feeling as a fan is a keeps a lot of the clubs on his because no no one is looking to be relegated. I like that it makes what would seem like meaningless games late in the season have significance normally if you're watching bengals dolphins at the end of the season you don't WanNa. Watch that slop at all outside of if you're betting on it well why hold so there's two reasons why people are watching bengals dolphins has nothing the promotion relegation has to do with fantasy and gambling and gambling is the only and fantasy or the two recession proof items. That's why supports leagues are getting so deep into gambling fantasy because you don't need competitive teams and as a matter of fact it doesn't matter who wins who loses and we can get right into this the number number one problem as I see it as a fan. I don't really have a good answer. Maybe Chris Wittingham can shed some light on this in American sports right now. It is simple be bad. Get rewarded with the draft in Europe. You have your youth academies and you have to really rely on scouting and sometimes you're signing players. Were six years old so Chris. What would you say to the naysayers that says it just simply doesn't work in America because of the system we already have in place and for me. It's the entrenchment Frenchman of the structures of the sport that make this really hard even for example in soccer terms where I think a lot of people want to see. This idea implemented a major league soccer just a couple of weeks ago. We had an expansion team announced for major league soccer in Saint Louis. There's reports that there's me another one added soon in Sacramento. These are owners that are investing two hundred million dollars to buy expansion clubs and if all of a sudden after they've paid the two hundred million to build up this league. You're not going well now. There's a chance at all of the revenues that you would get from playing in this league going to be gone because your team is in good enough. I don't know how many rich guys are going to sign up for ultimately for me. The impediment is the rich guys who want uncertainty on the investments that they've made yeah one thing. You said that you just have to make sure you clarify is they didn't spend two hundred million dollars to build up the league. They spent a million dollars colors because they believe that years from now their sons grandsons or somebody else like jeeter will come in and pay four hundred million dollars or five hundred a million dollars. That's so if you could go on this asset. Increasing value than promotion relegation would be fine of course and I think obviously these are viewed as well as has you know building things for the community as well as investments but for me the major difference for example you wouldn't have started relegation from the beginning with major league soccer because there was never ever any evidence that a league was going to survive as a matter of fact there were times there are times it major league soccer's history that it was. Harry Tampa and Miami were folded and there was is not a belief that that would be sustainable business model all credit to them. They've managed to do it but part of the way that you get owners to buy at one point. The crafts owned three teams James A. E. G. owned three teams because they're basically saying we're guaranteeing you that we're not going to relegate. We're not gonNA take revenue unique happy with revenue and the further along you get with that system being in place. The harder gets after all this work that you've done well. If you have a bad season you're out but you just made a big suction. You just glossed over by saying that we I promise you that we're not. GonNa take revenue away. We're not going to cut you off the kneecaps by relegating you but why can't we keep their revenue at levels that they're used to and still do relegation. You're you're marrying those concerts and I'm proposing that four relegation to work here in the US by definition you cannot cut off the revenue but you can implemented implemented system where you are playing different teams the following season so let me explain the anchor tenants of financially how it works in England for instance so a team gets relegated. I went it looked up Middlesbrough who are team that were in the championship. They got promoted and the next season they got relegated back down again so it's a nice example of you go up and then you go down again and so their revenues were cut in half year-over-year because the major money in England is the national TV deal which is one hundred million impounds guaranteed to the last finisher and goes and you basically have it slash half the next year you get what's called a parachute payment you get three years of parachute payments were you get fifty five percent of the TV deal of what you would have gotten the year before but the other thing that happens to that allows it to be a bit more sustainable although there is certainly plenty of Financial Joel Peril in the championship with the second division in England. Is there a lot of clubs that for example sign players to contracts where if they get relegated their salary goes way hey down so the their relegation clauses. I was looking up Jermain defoe since he was he was with Sunderland when they got relegated. There's a clauses contract nothing to salary go down but that he could leave to go and play for another club for free. there are for example. There are some clubs that have contracts but then you you'll recall when Josie Marina was fired at Chelsea. There were two points above above the relegation zone halfway through the year none of their players had relegation clauses and so they were at risk of if the worst case scenario happened they would have been screwed but the the the major thing that allows us to work is that on top of revenue going down Costco Down because you either sell players or their salaries go down. It's sort of built into the structure the league if you're going to be near the bottom you write that into a contract where the next year their salaries are not as crazy which is not foreign to what we see in American sports right now on your your former former marlins seen president. This is something that you did while you revenue goes down. You make your expenses go down right. The Way to do that is to is to get yourself in a position where you don't have guaranteed money going going out the door to underperforming assets so. I'm still not hearing anything that convinces me. That relegation can't work here in the US well one of the things that I heard in there that made me kind of fear it is. I feel like the unions have a lot of strength here in America and you're talking about. Some players are protected protections especially some players that have experienced plan at the the higher levels but to say your agent negotiate those protections for you all of a sudden wait. You're telling me I'm getting less money now. How's that GONNA fly over with a union right right and I I don't know I. I can't imagine that you know these things will be fought. Relegation clauses will be fought by unions but it's something that can be that can be implemented. There are other other sort of so it's fifty five percent first year than forty five percent than twenty percent in terms of the revenue you would have made in the primarily is what you make in the championship off of that TV deal. It's projected around forty five million pounds at the moment but the other thing that happens too. Is You know fans still come out to games and for example gate receipts for Middlesbrough the club. I'm using example only went up. One point five million pounds year over year so the fans still went. I guess the other thing that would have to happen too. Is Let's say Miami Marlins Orleans fans who are not showing up at the moment for the major league product with that attendance look even worse for a minor league product. Could you still half half zero yeah but it's also not apples to apples. Entirely I think if they were to ever do this in a in American sports I don't think you start off at more established Popular League David and I were sort of going back and forth on this and throughout the NHL which I think would be a fascinating case study but but as far as in Europe the protections are looked. If I'm getting relegated I still have a chance to have a big club in my sating because of all these additional competitions we have gone around and perhaps that's sweeten the pie for some of these owners that are getting sent down. I need to be able to get my money against the New York Yankees. that's where I make my number for the month or or something like that now for me. The the interesting thing that could happen as well is so it's not just going to set up a system of going up and going down you sort of have to change the entire structure of the sport. You can't have for example AAA clubs that are going to be going up and playing in major league baseball linked to like for example pawtucket and Boston right right you have to sort of separate that link and talk it would have to operate as its own club almost within Major League baseball so that it can get its own. TV deal it can sign its own players and everything like that and also the major one of the major financial aid because we were talking about financial things one of the major windfalls that come from teams get relegated another example in Newcastle they they had they got relegated from the primarily but they had a couple of players valuable to other European clubs straightaway when they get relegated they sell Masako Tottenham for twenty nine million pounds and Georgina Adam was a key figure for Liverpool for twenty four so before they've even taken some financial hits they've gotten so financial windfalls from getting rid of players but zone for the fans no but then they go and buy players have more championship experience that are more suited to that Second League that can you can still go up with them but you're getting rid of your best players that you can sort of be financially solvent one of the difficult things that happens is there isn't a financial mechanism for acquiring players that will that windfall to happen whereas if the MARLINS got relegated L. A. Gated. Maybe they could sell a play but that doesn't exist so the college draft almost have to go away. There are other things that would have to exist so that financially clubs can make money in other weight right and the the draft is a huge television deal which is big business over there which is why I think an considering. NFL's Minor League College football being its own huge enterprise. I I don't see this ever happening in American football especially in our lifetimes but it's why I think the NHL might be a really fascinating case study because already in their draft you have these youth youth clubs that have gone out and scouted players and sign players like you're trying to protect against tanking wasn't at the whole purpose race conversation. You made a comment like how is that good for fans and it's an excellent in point to which counterpoint look at the Miami Dolphins right now how Zaqoud for fans but how how is it good for fans what happened in Houston when the Astros lost one hundred games in a row hundred games a a year for three straight years..

And that's how I talked to my friends you guys. Don't you guys don't ever get your friends like that. You Know Yeah Yeah. I mean look if it works for you. That's cool Chris. I consider you a thank. You thank you felt good. Yeah Yeah thank you. I do feel like it took friendship next level Yankee at has nobody no no MC year. That's what we call. The mystery craters is going to be offended by that greeting. They're gonNA be like Oh. It's funny even though not really know what I said but they know we are now close personal. Yeah okay all righty. What guys hiring can be a slow process. Perhaps a little bit more space between this yeah talking about so Nelson Base. There's still a hat here. That's four Wayne Loves Harry Balls. Okay so yeah. That's not gonNA work space. You need between that and the ad as want you read this and say we have ooh LAUDERDA- also a Fort Myers right here. Okay yeah that long enough. How's this going. You want to restart it. It's going. Can you just say set up. What's what's in today's episode. What is in today's episode man. I'm really sorry to tell you this but it's a lot of me. I love it because you know but it's it's me and David Samson for Marlins team President and soccer's Chris winning soccer's second foray and in our mystery crate tanking is a huge the topic especially locally down here Miami with what the Miami Dolphins are doing a couple of weeks ago. We had a promotion relegation conversation one of the David Samson shows and nobody was really to prepare for so we decided to prepare and have a conversation. I think really ties into tanking. I think it's worth your time especially in the Salen we start trying to apply promotion relegation Gatien and how you stopped talking to each individual major sport. I'M NOT GONNA lie. When I heard that you guys are going to be doing this. I was like Oh. I don't know how this GONNA turn out but it was actually more interesting than I thought it was would be well. I didn't really bring much of the table because I was saying like moderator moderator. I JUST WANNA say promotion relegation because I think it's cool Chris. Wittingham huge soccer fan hugely informed armed on this and David Samson brought a lot to the table because he's the business guy he had a really interesting perspective on. All of this sports teams hire people. You know who else hires people. Those crappy people also higher trying to come up with a real number segue do it no go ahead cut here ready and sports sports teams tank. You know what else sports teams do. They hire people yes because there are people yup and people hire people and hiring is challenging and also can be a slow process basis for example cafe alturas. Coo.

"Fl. Ah cornflake wreaths this holiday season if you are so inclined please. I don't have a specific syria recipe myself but it really brings to mind the the one time i tried to make homemade golden grams and really just set them on fire in my oven so that should give you a brief puts. A sink picture of what i'm like as is a serial chef <hes>. Let's <hes> let's move onto mascot makeovers. It's a segment that we await before move on actually give a thought for what people can call in and leave us with males wise for the next episode yeah yeah. I had a good one so i don't know if you know but on tender they let you set in anthem for yourself a song that really embodies you and your spirit so i wanna i know what people's anthem series like if you were to do an autobiography but you're only allowed to pick a cereal rather than write anything. What would you do to besting testing cats. Lick your entire history. That is fantastic. What a wonderful. That should be the first question anybody asks anybody forever. I think the best anthem cereal is like the best idea i've ever heard so yeah. Let us know your anthems here on why i want to do a lot of those we just need tire upset at career <hes> <hes> tell me about this. <hes> the story that you found that made us want to return to <hes> <hes> <hes> mascot makeovers <hes> so we got a tweet recently about hold on pulling it up right here quick coco crisp a chocolate flavored crisp rice cereal say this is from twitter user max <music> but digital at norte. He said hi sorry. Have you seen this before coco crisp. It is a a sort of cocoa krispies or cocoa pebbles storebrand from laura lynn which i have not personally heard of but the mascot on it is just absolutely ridiculous officer tweet this from episode comes out but he appears to be some sort of furry brown's ferry raising or perhaps animal heart and he has a very slapshot expression. He looks quite doofus. He has several yellow tentacles as well as his is. Leg disappears to be chopped off. I was just thinking about cereal. Mascots and i've just never seen one like this. That's just so can eldridge terror but in like a cartoonist sense it's unclear whether the yellow bowl that he's eating it from his actually his his hand because that might make the whole creature in my opinion boy so so basically that led me to the question of if you were to visit to sign a store mascot for a serial. What sort of generic version version of cereal would you choose. Who would the mascot be can anything so. I have to take a cereal. The cereal pieces and in turn them into a mascot is that we're at is in this program stripped down to the archetype of that serial. It has no name no brand or family association association but you need to give it a new face. <hes> i think i would do grape nuts budgets but they would. It wouldn't just be individual pieces. It would be a sort of sand man. Esque figure are assembled from grape nuts that could take any form and it would be kind of a high energy thing for kids that would really appeal to them kind of like the genie from aladdin change in forms and doing a lot of great voices always maintaining that the grape nuts crunch and healthiness healthy healthy vibe i would say nuts and terrible name leslie forget yeah i think i would do sort of the cap'n crunch crunch berries archetype and really just assign it. The cap'n crunch crunches like sort of a nautical antiquity than i think we need to give a futuristic sort of you know robot ship captain who is israeli. Just you know bent on destroying relics of the past secure a brighter future for his own crunch berries..

"I can't really recommend it to anyone. We have seen as you sort of touched on your review. We've seen so many takes on this exact act for on the lack of innovation with regards to cereal <hes> shape and construction more or then flavoring which of course there's always big leaps forward in that i feel that we don't see a lot of innovations for it in in zero construction and i feel like fruit loops more than anything have been <hes> <hes> injected with a a a wide variety of flavors that don't really change the effect that much and aren't really that <hes> notable exception of course in my book would be <hes> wildberry fruit loops which are <hes> <hes> out of control good and worth worth every penny i said on <hes> twitter that they should change the they should be able to change the name to fruit loops freely should be called worst fruit loops because not as good as well very fruit loops the birthday cake you have what what was that carnival bery that the toy story did got baby shark down so i'm not looking forward to those and i did not enjoy the birthday cake. I feel like birthday. Cake is a specific. I don't feel like you can just say strawberry birthday cake great birthday specific flavor that i think has to give you a bit of that buttercream and a bit of the sprinkle. I think those are the two things you're signing up for with with birthday cake see the problem then and that between birthday cookie crisp and the multiple cold stone creamery birthday cake remix cereal. I just don't think cereal is a natural israel fit for the birthday. Cake flavor requires too much subtlety to pull off and such a very blunt and impactful actual medium like cereal. It's just not necessarily the best fit and putting strawberry on it doesn't really put a bandage on the wound here to to follow your example symbol. I'd recommend taking wildberry fruit loops and pairing them with donuts. Maybe if you want to get that fruity cake flavor yeah. I think that the donuts or you know what i could make an argument. The pig doughnuts is a better sim okra of strawberry birthday cake back seat. That's what upsets me. Most is that kellogg's really nailed it on the first try with that pink doughnut serial ever since it's just been like a dark mirror around that getting blurrier and blurrier every time until we ended up with something like birthday cake fruit loops that i just cannot bring myself to keep eating <hes> what we can bring ourselves to keep ingesting is your voicemails. If you go to pull the rest you can find a link to <hes> liba sir <music> <hes> some voicemails. We asked you a what was it. Dan swahili snack treats snack treats that are cereal based. Yeah i pretty shamelessly shamelessly promoted my unbirthday and said that if you were to bring a serial big good to a party what would be your secret recipe <hes> all right so listen to these than <hes> dan. I'll give you some time to come up with our question for the <hes> the following week but <hes> let's. Let's enjoy those now. Hello and happy birthday dan <hes> my family cereal recipe is either extremely common almond or it is just saturated appalachian culture to the point wearing a west virginian staple but my favorite is peanut butter. Choose uh-huh wherein you just mix like corn syrup sugar peanut butter and frosted flakes and cook it into just a gooey demass that you let said and then each you it real great. Hello dan and justin. I don't have a recipe involving cereal but if i can. I'd like to encourage you to make graham crackers at home. I would never ought to do this myself and i worked for shop that made their own graham key lime pies. It is a symbol process and the smell that fills your house's unmatched the result embodies everything eh about box graham crackers while completely blowing them out of the water the colors richer the flavors deeper. If you're like me you like the best they are burned.

"Seven select sub brand has released three different cereal and confection bonded bars a one of which is simply cinnamon and milk chocolate doc which to me was too boring too obvious kind of tired of cinnamon they had free rice cereal which is which is pebbles to the non contractually contractually bound amongst us in white confection which is okay okay interesting enough but then they have free hoops cereal in pink confection and the very existence of pink infection is enough to draw me to any edible treat. Let alone involves cereal as well. What a wild name for something pink. Thank free it is literally called free hoops cereal in pink confection. It is wild yeah if you look pink infection. There's it's not even really a lot of info surrounding it. There's like an old new york times article from nineteen sixty two extolling the the romantic virtues of pink confection but but i think in this case for seven eleven it's not so much romantic but it is it is about right for what you'd want from a cereal bill and chocolate or chocolate escobar because they really packet full of this little bits of not really fruit loops shrapnel and though they go pretty heavy on like the raw sweetness of confection like you know you know those those i don't know if they're lollipops but they're honest dick and it's usually dislike santa's head during chris for sure yeah. It tastes exactly like that. If you took a turkey baster full of fruit loops milk and just shove right in santa sara bellum and went ham sakata like <hes> like lollipop brightly bright light. It's a white chocolate pop that kind of vibe yeah. It's something you want to more than jury eat immediately because it's a lot super sweet but i think as a like a next to the cash register impulse buy i'm guessing i got the best of the three. I can't say for sure but i think it's worth a try. If you have somebody else to eat it with who can take the burden of second impact of of you of well from a free loop fruity free hoops to <unk> loops. You've got a new new varietal of the <hes> the fruit it loops. I have tried this. One and i feel like you are spot on and yeah yeah. He did pause three stress-free. Show remember november's podcast so i'm going to elegantly dissect the fact that birthday cake fruit loops though it's not entirely we knew it took me a while to get to it represents kind of the worst of the cereal industry right now it just made me frustrated because you look at kellogg's specifically and they've released a lot of just sugary ring cereals often with a little bit of a little bit of an ambiguous vegas fruity twist to it. We had unicorn cereal. We had peep- cereal we catecholamine cereal. We had toy story cereal and now we have birthday cake cake fruit loops which basically distaste the exact same as the rest of them just one note and one is being generous. One notes sugar sugar impact that the freeness of it. It says it's supposed to be strawberry in this case but it just is not come through in. It just leaves me really sad..
