Making Peace With the Taliban
"From the New York Times, I'm Michael Barr. This is daily. Eighteen years ago, the US declared war on the Taliban promising to drive it from power in Afghanistan. Mu g Michelle on why we are now offering peace to the same group. It's Monday February fourth. Would you remind us how the Taliban came to wool in Afghanistan? So it was in the space where? The Soviet Union was trying to install a government control of Ghana. Stan. And the US and CIA was funneling money to resist that. When they first came down this road in December nineteen Seventy-nine few Russians realized it would take more than nine years to get back a game. Once the Soviets were pushed out Soviets withdrew defeated in nineteen eighty nine for the guerrilla for the CIA was funding. Many Soviets will ask of Afghanistan was it all for all those guerrilla fighters started fighting each other over power. Country quickly disintegrated into civil war. With the Russians gone. The Americans lost interest in Afghanistan burder, leaving everything and out of that emerges, a group of sort of village Mola's trying to rally for order and security and Justice. This kind of altruistic group which wanted to bring peace to gone at initially there were very popular. And because there's so much anarchy and chaos there pretty well received them they sweep across the country pretty quickly. But once they do take over most of the country. They are stuck with this realization, how do we govern? Now, they had no experience in government. Now, we have control of these areas. People must pray five times a day and anything recognizes vice that must be stopped. So they try to focus on what was most important to them, which was religious beliefs and piety. The way to solve Asian is to stop are young and old people committing sins like shaving beards chewing tobacco smoking cigarettes, all crimes like robbery, try to control. How long you beard is how short new hair is whether women cover up enough where they show any ankle women should not walk on the streets or go to the shops, Bishop stay at home, and where job television music Bataga fee. All those things they take away, but on service delivery on health sanitation that all that stuff. They were stuck. They didn't know what to do. The United States launched an attack this morning on one of the most active terrorist bases in the world. So the US started paying attention again, it is located in Afghanistan and operated by groups of -ffiliated with you SAMA bin Laden when some of the actors that he was following elsewhere people like bin Laden al-qaeda terrorism is one of the greatest dangers we face in this new global era found their way to the space that the Taliban had created enough gonna stop. We saw twisted mentality at work last week in the embassy bombings in Nairobi and Gara Salone, and what does the US want from the Taliban when it comes to people like bin Laden, and the group he represents Kaieda will the US wanted the Taliban to surrender bin Laden and the US under Clinton carried out a few strikes that barely missed bin Laden. But the. The pressure wasn't to a level that kind of made the Taleban pause and make that they're only calculation do we give bin Laden or do. We not that calculation changed after the attacks of nine eleven. Has the attacks were carried out and planned bio kite on by bin Laden out of? So as an act of revenge in retaliation, the Bush administration gave the Taliban ultimatum or two weeks ago. I gave Taliban leaders a series of clear and specific demands close terrorist training camps, handover leaders of the al-qaeda network and return all foreign nationals, including American citizens unjustly detained in your country. None of these demands were met and now the Taliban will pay a price. Missile explosions light up the night time skies, and the aircraft tracers streak over the capital city, Kabul. And specifically what was the Talibans role in the planning and the execution of September eleventh attacks, there is decent consensus, most of the Taliban were not aware of the specifics of what bin Laden, and Al Qaeda were planning cooking up. So what the Taliban ended up kind of providing was the protection for a guy who had a history of doing things like this. And that history suggests that was probably going to do it again. And despite that they had harboured him. So that's what came to bite. On my orders. The United States military has begun strikes against al-qaeda terrorist training camps and military installations of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan when the US undertakes this military action enough ghanistan what kind of distinction does it make between al-qaeda which is the attack and the Taliban, which is given al-qaeda refuge. There is no distinction. The military action. We are taking we talk it'd against places we know to be involved in the outcome. The network of terra or against the military, upper authors of the Taliban. We are joined in this operation by our staunch friend, Great Britain, other close friends, including Canada, Australia, Germany and France have pledged forces as the operation unfolds. We're talking about a government of largely simple Mola's for all of a sudden finding themselves in the middle of one of the biggest. Stories in the world more than forty countries in the Middle East, Africa, Europe and across Asia have granted air transit or landing rights. We are supported by the collective will the world. It is complete sense of retaliation and the Taliban didn't put up much resistance. Actually. They've never faced the kind of power that they faced from US air campaign, the jets flying overhead the size of the bombs and the frequency of the airstrikes. They started running pretty quickly. And that moment something happens that could have changed. The course of the war pretty early on. Women lucky. Which is why? Some of their most important leaders draw a letter, which essentially is a surrender letter for very very minimal demands. Which is they wanted safety in return for surrender. And they sent that letter that the drafted to Hamad Karzai darkly. Ron did buddy. Who had just been appointed as an intern president of Ghana stunned. So they send this letter to him saying, hey, we don't think we can win anymore done. We want safe in return for this. And our understanding is at Hamad Karzai communicated that message to the Pentagon and the American officials us in contact with. And what happened was the signal that came back was pretty clear signal from Donald Rumsfeld. Who was secretary defensive time saying we do not talk to terrorists we are not authorizing. If anyone wonders negotiations, which would result in freeing, people that ought not to be free freeing of people who kill other people as terrorists freeing of people who have record of harboring terrorists. We are not in the business of authorizing any kind of negotiation, which would let people like that go. So what was the Bush administration's? Thinking in so quickly rejecting this offer to end the war and enter some kind of negotiation with the Taliban. Will we have to remember that all of this is happening in matter of weeks after those massive attacks? So in the psyche in the American psyche. But also in the calculation of the Bush administration, there's a lot of sense of hurt in revenge in and all of that. So they are grunting on that kind of energy had we retaliate in a way that makes it clear we won't tolerate something like this again and partially because the nature of the Taleban defeat was so swift that one could see why the US would want a pure victory that if this government of the Taliban collapsed in just a matter of weeks than why not finish it off. And you can have the full glory. And that was the launch of what has become the seventeen year, bloody war. Doc.

A large scale salt at one of the most violent regions of the country left six American soil this morning suicide bomber killed thirty two people in an attack in eastern Afghanistan. The body of staff surgeon Chester McBride came home to report from the United Nations says civilian casualties of the war enough kenniston have risen to record levels in the last year as commander in chief. I have the termined that it is in our vital national interest to send an additional thirty thousand US troops staff. Ghanistan Afghanistan enemy sniper tames attack. U S marines and Afghan troops as several gun battles erupted, Monday, the financial and human cost of the war and ghanistan has gone up every year over the past five years. No one denies that. We have inherited a challenging and troubling situation in Afghanistan war in Ghana. Stan now it's eighteenth year. The American people are weary. Of war without victory. Wore Inam Aghanistan has caused America. The lives of more than twenty two hundred US troops one trillion US dollars yet the Taliban now hold more territory than at any time since the invasion. Jeep how is the Taliban remained such a potent fighting force in this period, despite the military might of the US and its coalition allies. I mean, it it seems almost inconceivable. The most important factor is the Taliban had a safe haven across the border in Pakistan in a place where they could not be targeted bay could take rest they could plan. Dick could be trained. They could be supplied. They could come back and that problem of safe havens, just did not change it all in seventeen years that was one problem. The second thing was that we're talking about a place where there was no government structures. The US turn to warlords to militia leaders to politicians who didn't have great track record as their partners and the power and the money the weapons that went to them. They abused all of that that created. Grievances that created space for the Taliban to exploited in to recruit from the rally against what was this American funded project enough themselves and during these years as the Taliban insurgency is growing in strength and effectiveness does the US at all we consider the possibility of negotiating with them of sitting down and starting to think through what a peace deal might look like with them for a good decade. The US had a military. I ball the idea of talking to Taliban was not entertained much and wanted that military. I approach last for so long. Was it US national pride was it? Still smoldering anger at the Taliban over September eleventh. What was keeping the US from ignoring what seems like the reality of the Talibans reach and power. Our and threats. I think it was a mix of all those things if you talk to diplomats commanders in officials who involve during those years, they would say initially the military hubris and fried in this greatest military in the world wanting to tackle this problem in going at it head on that kicked him. So that decade than became a mindset that the military was so heavily invested in this place. An entire generation of military leaders kind of grew up in this war. The for them admitting not even defeat admitting to the weakness that they couldn't tackle this problem military. It was big road that was hard for them to cross. So what began as we refuse to negotiate with the Taliban because of what they have been apart of became we refuse to lose to the Taliban. Absolutely. And now has become. We will lose this war, and you can win this war either. Until I guess now. Until now the United States is eager to end this nearly eighteen year involvement in the war enough ghanistan which has killed tens of thousands of civilians soldiers and tied by our circuitry of state. Mr. pump said that we the United States are ready to talk with the Taliban and discussed the role of international force now states will support facilitate and participate in these discussions. The American military commanders are talking more about peace than civilian sometimes it feels and we'll see what happens, but we are talking about peace. I don't know that they're going to be successful. Maybe not probably than who knows. It might be. They might not, you know, my attitude and all of that stuff. Whether it's North Korea or anybody else, maybe they are going to be successful. Maybe they're not going to be. But we have negotiations going on right now enough ghanistan. Some would you what do these negotiations that the US is now having with the Taliban look like so you've had a pretty large size of American. Diplomats officials in the room across the table from a decently size, Taliban delegation, and a couple cutlery diplomats in their sort of mediating facilitating and they've been going at it for hours and hours some sessions lasting eight nine hours. What has changed? Now is that the Taliban side comes with a little more thority wear. They engaged in discussions of limited couple issues and those two. Issues are the American withdrawal of their forces in return for the American demand of the Taliban, the Taliban guarantee that the Afghan soil would not be used again by terrorists like Okada to attack the United States. So how different is that deal? From what the Taliban was offering when it wrote that letter in two thousand and one to Karzai in the US in terms of what the outcome ends of being in practical terms for the US and for the US national security interests. It is pretty similar, but in terms of the spirit this perception back, then it would have been defeated Taliban, offering a surrender. Now, you've got a Taliban trying to negotiate the best therms. They can out of a pretty strong position against an American government. That is in a hurry to get out that their president President Trump is losing patience with this war in the diplomats were negotiating for President Trump that table are moving what kind of urgency where everybody else is saying this is America in withdrawal. This is Americans trying to create as much face saving for leaving award. They could not win a special. So it's kind of the same deal for the Taliban that they offered seventeen years ago, but arguably significantly worse. Deal for the United States the same deal in terms of what the Taliban are conceding, but not the same deal because the Taliban the time would be conceding defeat. But now they'll be conceding in return for pretty good terms and the nature of those storms that is what is creating concern. Now is that the US is so entirely focused on these two issues, but the Taliban are willing to give these US pretty easily because they have their eye on the real prize, which is what which is their role in the future of STAN how much share of the power they'll get and they think if they can satisfy the US and the US starts wrapping up here. They will only get more than what they already thing. They can get enough Garsten because the Afghan government side is so dependent on the US both finan-. Intially militarily. But also in this perception of having strong bulwark of a partner in the US, and the US is signaling such rush such urgency to get out that it's leaving them vulnerable on all those fronts. So the US is negotiating primarily with the Taliban. It's like you're saying in kind of cutting out the Afghan government that it supported for seventeen years. That's intriguing. Yes. Yes. And partially that was because the Taliban for a long time had that as their main demand that they would only negotiate with those who overthrew them, which was the US military and even conceding that demand the Taliban that they would only negotiate with the US. I lot of people are seeing in that signs of how desperate the US's an how slippery. It's negotiating positions are in this effort to secure a disengagement from this costly long conflict. So we are negotiating with the Taliban now on their own terms on their own, basically. And how has that left? The people in Afghanistan feeling I have too much you talk to people your friends, your neighbors, your family about this. What did they think about the fact that the US is negotiating with the Taliban and negotiating as the Taliban wants is negotiations to go. We need to remember that when the Taliban I started they came the back of this anarchy. And although there were an oppressive group, they brought people physical safety in the past seventeen years, and increasingly more and more. So the Taliban have resorted to tactics that have been absolutely Afghanistan. As a recent surge of deadly van claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing overnight and these sixty people dead and hundred fifty one inch officials say the attacker driving, ambulance packed with explosives, finish security checkpoints, designating voice recognize exclusives and ambulances that blow up in public around about killing dozens and dozens of people Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack this morning. Blast comes one week after Taliban attack on a hotel in the city. People died after an attack on a children's agency. This morning have killed nineteen security. Personnel. Officials say eight of them dumb-down phone game with ten Afghan soldiers died during an assault on a military academies. The fifteenth talk in Kabul in the post twelve months, the deadliest since two thousand one the kind of bloody attacks that people will not forget so on the one hand when people think that this group will return to have a share of the power all of the brutality that they've been associated with in. Recent years will be very fresh on the other hand, you have parts of the country where the values and the freedoms and the luxuries that came with the past seventeen years of attention and money that came to the urban areas of the cities to build this new democratic Afganistan as an alternative detachable their large parts of the country that those values that much. Money that attention did not trickle down at en- does parts. The only thing that has trickled in the teen years has been the violence in the bombing. So for them they just wanted to end. Because it makes little difference. Whether it is the government of Ashraf Ghani, or if it's the Taliban. That's in power. I wonder has the Taliban become more of a terrorist group more of a deadly lethal force now than when the US dismissed them in two thousand one as terror group that it wouldn't negotiate myth in is that perhaps in part because of the war that's waged against the US and its allies. Absolutely. There's no doubt about that. So if we're giving the Taliban a peace deal now or are on the verge of giving them a Peacedale when they are more violent than when this all started in two thousand and one and when we dismissed them and said, no, we won't talk to you. Because we think of you as terrorists what was the point of this twenty year, long war? Precisely that is a question or a lot of people are asking and deal me way out of this war. When you talk to American officials is if they give the Taliban a public justification that the war that they've raised insurgency that they're fought for seventeen years was justified in worth. As seems like the Americans are willing to give them that to find a way out of this. And it raises the question. What did the United States and fight for your seventeen? Would you? Thank you very much. Thank you like. Interview with CBS Margaret Brennan broadcast on Sunday. President Trump said that the US was close to a peace with the Taliban. And I think that they I think they're tired. And I think everybody started we had to get out of these endless wars and bring our folks back home. Now that doesn't mean we're not going to be watching with intelligence. We're going to be watching and watching closely. Brennan asked the president what would happen if I'll Qaeda or any other terrible return to ghanistan after US troops leave. And we'll come back if we have to have very faster planes. We have very good cargo planes. We can come back very quickly and. Yours. What else you need to? Is there anything he can do that would somehow convince you to give him more time in office, the governor of Virginia? Ralph north is rejecting calls from fellow Democrats that he resigned after the revelation of a racist photograph on his medical school. You know, and I consider we were elected to the Senate at the same time. Look he's lost the authority to lead. He's lost authority to govern. He has to resign isn't the best interest to the cardinal sin. The best interest of the party. The photograph of one man wearing black faced the other AKU Klux Klan was discovered by a local blogger on Friday prompting a written apology from north but on Saturday north reversed himself during a news conference saying he had not appeared in the photo. And was unsure how it ended up on his European. When I was confronted with the images yesterday. I was appalled that they appeared on my page. But I believe in and now that I am not either of the people in that photo by Sunday almost every major democratic leader in the country as well as the head of the end of lease EP had called on north to step down saying the decision to put the photo on his yearbook page, whether he was in the photo or not made it impossible for him to represent Virginia. As governor just just to be clear, if it turned out that he's not in that photo that wasn't hand in the photo. And he had nothing to do that photo going on his plate. He was there as a mix up as he seemed to indicate at the press conference yesterday that would make no difference to you at this juncture. No, you know, he finished medical school was received a yearbook with a racist of pitcher on his page in the yearbook, and he has said nothing about it. That's if the I'm Michael seawall.

Sandy would say we were doing all those name that we thought that you know let's just put a band aid on it but it's a gaping wound that goes back to our childhood that go back to pass relationships and we just begin to realize there's a lot of depth to the baggage pitch. That's Pasture D._A.. Horton describing the aftermath of an epic argument that he and his fiancee Alesia had just a few months before their wedding. The good news is D._A.. Andalucia are still happily married and we're back with us today on focused on the family your host is focused president and author Jim Daly and I'm John Fuller John. We had a great and I would say at times eye opening conversation with D._A.. And Alicia about their love story it was beautiful. It was tragic repair of it was all of those things in the most important thing it was was God centered and I know the listeners would have heard that last time.

I appreciated the vulnerability and the commitment to really stay together that our guests communicated about they had a lot of opportunities where couples I would hang it up but they didn't D._A.. Militia welcome back to focus thank you. We talked about that six hour marathon argument that you had we'll just let people being suspense there. If you didn't hear that you gotta you gotta listen to it but let's pick it up today. On some of the tools rules that you talk about in the book enter the ring that helps you and your marriage and has you know really brought you too much healthier place that idea of communication conflict as the big banner Youtube have had those epoch arguments and you've been able to make through there. I know some couples listening right now are saying how did you do that and that's WanNa talk about. Tell us about the day when you were about to do some marriage counseling with another couple and all of a sudden things things went haywire set the picture because this gene and I can relate to this one show so Saturday evening. It's in the fall time November and it's chilly. We live in Kansas City Missouri at this time and we have a couple of coming over for marriage. Counseling and Alesia has been cleaning the house. She's been making our world famous lasagna bread salad. The whole nine kids have been cleaning and all of a sudden. I get out the shower. Give my clothes on. I'm ready and ask Aska Lisa how I can help and this is the eleventh hour and she looks at me and says Oh now you want to help when I've been cooking and cleaning and I've been getting up to the kids. I'm glad you gotTA shower. I didn't get a shower but you gotta get a shout and she's just sitting. There and I'm like okay. You know what I'm just going to wash the dishes and let you kind of do what your flesh. Why don't you just go get us? Our go get ready gloves. She comes right back and says you know what I'm sick of being in a loveless marriage and when she said that as daily just like the previous broadcast. I said I rebuke you. That was my thing for her. She when she says loveless marriage that is that's where I go from zero to one hundred immediately so I just slammed my fist on the counter and I said forget it. I'm done on and I walked out which is jeans timbaland boots on in a Hoodie in the middle of November. It was cold outside and you have guests coming for guests. You're going to be council for marriage counseling and teaching them how to have togetherness. What's what's the next frame look like walking around frustrated praying back home again? Daddy's gone you know I'm trying to console them. Make sure everything's okay also contact the couple's. Tell him hey probably tonight. It's not a good day schedule yeah so we're literally trying to figure out okay. How do we talk about this but not make this a knock-out drag-out conversation? I ended up coming back to the House and consultant children. Let them know sometimes this happens. They had not seen US act like that. It's not because we didn't have arguments but it just never escalated to that degree in them being old enough to be aware that mom and dad ain't good right now and so we had to let them know divorce is not an option. That's not on the table. Dad got frustrated but it's the whole day it's not just just the blow up and so from there we contacted the family and you know I gotta get up the next morning and I had a preach before congregation and I don't hide these things so you know I'm just saying man. It was a rough night last night. Walk through the passage then we have a meal as we had an got happy feast the very next day and so the couple as members of our church so they come up and say hey we're sorry about last night. We say we got to be honest with you. Look we got to an argument. She said we in a level of marriage. I lost it. I was out walking the streets for like thirty minutes trying to you know tempered myself down and they just is Boston. I laugh why they were so relieved and just thankful that we could just be vulnerable in real to let them know y'all. We don't have it altogether don't and so. I felt like that kind of helped tear. Sure that wall down for them to really see us as just regular people who have regular issues. Did you need to help each other yeah. Did you eventually do that counseling with them. And what did they seem like how did that go. We actually started out the GOP fees and we started talking into them. Just sharing what happened and I I think we schedule another time with them but that point after we got up from that table. The wife came to me said I'm just so thankful that this is probably been one of the best counseling sessions we've ever had so thank you for your vulnerability. Thank you for your openness and thank you for helping to see that we're going to be okay. We just walked through some practical steps that we've had to develop in our own rhythm of marriage to say how do we go from the point of escalation to conflict resolution. They had to be all ears how they were in a few other. People were too in terms of the projections. I think a lot of us feel like we have to put out there. Were together couple. We have our act together. We don't have issues so why is VAT and how many couples do you deal with that. That's really the barrier to honesty into one this. I think there's for US number one millennial so we're just GONNA put that out there that may encourage somebody. They may discourage somebody out but what I recognize is one of the virtues who's generation lead generally speaking we value authenticity and so I think an generation there's a little bit more of a Segue to be honest about broken lists and being human beings rather than previous generations from what I've seen in my own limited understanding manning. Is this facade that everything is altogether. We got the picture perfect family <hes> it doesn't work that way anymore and we recognize. We're not tired retired of playing the charades like we really want to make sure that people understand Jesus meets us in in our mess and people need to see that in realized that and so that way when you take down that facade people recognize may have gotten work on Y'all then he can work on us so it actually gives more hope to say Jesus as more accessible than what you think so. I think that's one of the things things it's helped us. Help couples deconstruct those walls. I think that language in Fiji's to Paul Talks about Jesus finished work it just dissolved the barriers of separation that we as human beings consent ourselves specifically in the body of Christ whether it's ethnic or gender but I think that we build these walls of self preservation has helped me see how I even build walls of self preservation but Jesus came to destroy those walls so that I can be who he wants me to be. It's really well said and it really it goes right to the root of our flesh. That's why again in marriage we become more selfish selfless and that's I think Ghinwa the Lord set it up. You identified four what you call never see the things never to do in marriage <hes>. Let's go there for some practical health absolutely <hes> I'll start and you want to piggyback off each other okay so one of the things I realize is when we came back from the fight and had to talk to our kids. We wanted them to understand. We never want to avoid the issue. I think that's one of the things couples often fall into this idea that we're just gonNA avoid it. We're GONNA pray that goes away and whenever bring it up again and then they sweep it under the rug and the trip over it and so we want to make sure that even though in our moment in the heat of the flesh we don't want to escalate things with our flesh. We just say hey. Let's table this for another time. When we can actually talk sensibly and more lovely it'd be more civil about it so avoiding the issue shouldn't be something that we do <hes> but we make sure that we say hey is not a good time to talk about us? Now we can. How can we come back and talk about add another time? Yeah that's good I think in addition to that also we want to try to develop rhythm of not fighting back so never fight back. What I mean is like in the situation that we just talked about? At least you said a trigger word came right back with another another trigger word. I could have said something would made her upset. I could've said I rebuke you and then that would have been fighting back. So what we recognize is that you know what it's okay to walk away but in the way we in which we walk away has to be dealt with tenderly and filled with compassion to say listen. I'm walking away from the moment. I'm not walking the marriage on my flesh. I'm so tempted to fight back and right now. I know that we should never fight back so I need space. I'm going to give you space. Let me get along with the Lord limit gather my thoughts and we will come back so that again we won't avoid the issue so we have never avoid the issue never fight back. What are the other two now the other one we would say never act as if you don't care I feel like for me? I think one of the greatest things I can do to hurt him as act like I don't care about his feelings and emotions after he just just laid it all out there and expressed his heart that it'd be the most hurtful thing that I've done to him before out of my own hurt was act like I just don't care about what you just said and so I felt like that's a trigger. Don't try to avoid that and try to make sure that you are actively actively listening but also acknowledging the fact that they just laid their emotions out there. So what are we going to do about it. So if you're not ready for that discussion how would you say it to D._A.. If you don't want to act like you don't care but he's just told you something. That really irritated. Did you yeah what would you say to him. I would say hey like I think it's I hear your heart but I'm I'm just going to be honest. I'm stuck on my my her right now and if you can just give me some time in space to be with Jesus so that way we can come back together are and <hes> revisit the conversation but I feel like he's. He's really good about giving me that space so that's why said creating space would be important because in that moment if the person's not ready to talk about it. Let them have that space yeah nothing. That's one thing that we've had to learn. Is that for someone for the spouse that this is just been brewing. I had to use the analogy just a few weeks ago to help you understand. I'm not being emotional list. I'm not a robot but you interrupted my train of thought when I'm working on something deeply bleak concentrating on something and you came to me with something that you've been thinking about so we grew up in the mid west it gets very cold winter and I said basically it's like euro warmed up car and you're coming to me and when you engage the conversation you're warm. You've been running heats work in you've been on the freeway. You're you're all going but I'm just now getting the ignition started on my car and I'm cold so I'm cold compared to where you're warm. Give me a few minutes to disconnect mentally from the work that I'm doing so that I can give you full attention and that you give me space is to let the car my heart warm up so now we can go on this drive together and we've had to learn because I do the same thing she'll put it all out there and I have nothing to say and she just takes that as the worst defense because she just literally gave me her heart and I'm like I don't you know what to do with this and a lot of that as I've talked to other men they're like I don't know what to say. I don't have the right words. Am I going to say something and I'm like I know I have all those thoughts going on in my head I think in that moment you just gotTa beyond say. I don't know what to say other than thank you for trusting being me with the content of your heart like thank you. I don't know what to do with it. I know you don't want me to solve the problem because when I try to solve it you learn here on pins and needles so. Takes time that last one is never used manipulation boy that can be you can be blind your own manipulation so hey I guess how do you become aware of win your manipulating and then how do you back off yeah. I think that's what Colossians three where you you know. Paul tells us to put on Compassionate hearts be tenderhearted full of compassion full of forgiveness when when your spouse is becoming vulnerable they're like Klay in your hands and if you have evil intentions impure motives karnal thoughts you can shape them by shaming them and guilting them and turning the entire issue back on your spouse and you think you're Scott free you went and argument but you could potentially lose your spouse. It's not worth it and I think from me. Philippians chapter two one often often have to go back to is saying do not nothing from selfish ambition but consider others needs more significant than your own and if in that moment I'm not thinking about my spouses needs and what he needs from we at that time I'm GonNa easily manipulate the situations and from my outcome for the betterment of me moment even if it satisfaction of winning argument so he another area that really creates marital strain are the finances and I know in writing the book you took a close look at that I think identified a stat of thirty five percent of couples it meant that finances or the core reason that they have such disharmony in their marriage you to experience that like most of us is young couples that what was does your story when it came to finances what was going on. I always tell people when Damon I got married. I had a checking account and savings account <hes> with money in it and with <hes> red numbers right four different checking and savings accounts with red numbers on my end until we obviously had <hes> different perspectives when it came to our finances and we still do we still do we don't we don't see I on everything but there's a lot more harmony mini now than there was when we first got together so over some of the colossal missteps that you had what was did did you hit a bankruptcy moment or we did early on and on marriage <hes> so we grew up in poverty we grew up in the inner city and <hes> we always believed in the American dream that that was the the reason for living and so our faith in Christ everything giving to the local church all that came as a footnote to the American dream and so you know at a young age we were a year and a half into our marriage. We got approved for alone much more than we should have got approved for this was on the twenty two thousand seven two thousand eight era of the bubble yes and so we took all that equity in the home and we added a basketball court redid our basement fifty one an inch screen TV cars family trips timeshare that we never used credit card debt and we were just racking it all up in the entire time I can't even think of time we ever contributed to the local church and and we're working with Jesus the whole time we're like man thank you for these blessings. You're renting from heaven and <hes> and we hit we hit the reality that man we have racked up debt that there is absolutely no way we could pay off and we had to come to Jesus and repents. It's and in that moment of repentance we recognize we surrender all these things we had filed bankruptcy Chapter Seven and we were twenty twenty seven twenty eight years old in our some of those disagreements I mean did you guys. Did you fight fight fair and that or did you play together. No we didn't pull it together because I felt that and here's here's the kicker it was a house right next door to my parents also across the street from my brother. You're not just was it the American dream but whole family was there you know and I felt that what from me walk away from this means. I'm walking away from everything that I want my family everything that I ever knew everything that ever wanted to live for you know but obviously it was the wrong way to live <hes> and so yeah we never came together on that. He wanted to go. I wanted to stay and it was a law that really did a a move on both of our hearts as okay we're going to go in this direction and he humbled us and it was in a good way because we went to a Bible College. We stayed on campus. It was a two bedroom apartment that was old army barrick and <hes> roach filled mold infested and that was some of the best times are Mary. We felt that it was more of a simple way of life. We felt that we were able to concentrate on things that actually mattered versus trying to fill it with things I didn't matter <hes> and just really spend more time together the move from the fifty one inch T._v. to the thirteen inch Disney he princess television that was our daughter's we borrow that from our it does and those were sweet moments sweet memories because that's when God began to allow us to form an interdependency so I had to shed my independent mindset at Lisa had to shed her co dependent mindset and we had to form this new authentic interdependency and Jesus use that that old renovated army barrick as the space was our beth-el we met with God there and I yeah I think it leads us to the next kind of emphasis in the book that you talked about and that's suffering together and the benefit of suffering together. I don't think in the Western culture certainly in the United States. That's something we run too. I think we run from an even as you're describing driving it. Oh How quaint that you had to go to this cockroach-infested area for a little while to get close to God isn't that sweet and you had to give up your big TV right so sweet but described the benefits the deep spiritual benefits of suffering hiring and I know people are cringing right now. Go WHOA WHOA I didn't sign up for this Gospel stuff too well. Then you aren't really reading the word that's true you know I think from my heart. The idols of greed consumerism comfort and self self were the distractions that kept me from seeing the full radiance of Christ in my life but then also on my marriage and my parenting and then when Jesus stripped away all those things because we would prey those dangerous prayers Lord anything that you don't desire for us that we've amassed take it away any did answer operators which is a good thing according to i John Three our hearts nut condemned and got his answering our praise and harmony with his wheel so if that means shedding materialism so we can have more of our Messiah then so be it sold our marriage can flourish and so we begin to recognize denies that and realize that you know what come hell or high water Jesus is with us. He's never gonNA leave us and we're committed to each other and then came deaths and our families then came <hes> a diagnosis with multiple sclerosis for Alesia then came challenges <hes> with God. Relocating our family from Kansas City Atlanta to North Carolina then finally to Long Beach you know all those seasons of change and suffering allowed us to recognize that God was forming us as husband and wife melting us together in those fiery trials trials like what we read about James Von Yeah. This is so good. I'm sure people are thinking I want that. I want that. The subtitle of Your Book Is Fighting Together for Gospel saturated marriage. We talked about that last time and you gave some definition around that you defined what that looks like <hes> so eloquently but you also believe that discipleship within your marriage is a key component for living our lives according to the Gospel. I'm sure some guys are backing up from hearing that just now discipleship discipleship in my marriage. That's where I want to rest. That's where I want escape. That's where I wanNA get away because I've been beat up all day work tough and I'm trying to be the best dad I could be. I can feel men backing up because it feels too heavy. You want me to disciple in my marriage and you want wives to disciple their husbands and marriage described that force make that edible down to bite size. I think for us <hes> it just came with understanding that we both had a lot of spiritual immaturity and I felt like from me I got had a really brick may have my pride and helped me to understand that I need my husband to pour into me and not just be my pastor but be one that brings me back to Jesus when I don't want to go and vice versa and was we realized that we are strongest accountability partners in that's a good thing and not necessarily a bad thing then we both said okay. What does it look like on a day-to-day you know kill we stop and pray together? Can we go chromebook together. You know we begin to see what fits our schedules and make time for that and even if it came from Hey I'm gonNA listen to podcasts. Can you listen to it and then we talk about later sure it came from both of us doing those things together and we Botha edified and we wanted to do more of it so I felt like those are some practical ways that we thought that we needed it and it helped us but it had for me personally ahead realize how to overcome my pride and say I do need discipleship in this area. 'cause you're a stronger in this area examples over and over again to me. It keeps ringing in my mind that you're creating intimacy. Yeah everything you're doing when you talk about the tools of a strong gospel saturated marriage. It's creating intimacy which is what the Lord does yeah I mean that is his tool a man the intimate with me and I'm GonNa take places but <hes> you know we're down to the last few minutes in there is some cutting questions as I read the book that really caught my attention and these were questions you defined as for husbands to ask their wives the D._a.. What are those questions that you might want to start with you know in the area of communication <hes> basically how can I improve the ways I communicate also does my tone of voice a nonverbal body language reassure or does it upset you? I so appreciate everybody's cringing. We've been married. My wife and I've been married for thirty four years. These are questions. I need to ask tonight because I know I put her off. Sometimes I know there's an eye roll or there's a certain tone it just she hears it differently so I appreciate it very much what you're saying right and it takes courage to ask but it actually takes more courage in great occurred in disciplines listen and here the answer responses well. There's a couple more so hit those up for in the area of listening to you feel like I'm paying attention to daily also in what ways do you feel like. I'm not listening well I've had asked her that on numerous occasions and she gives me are honest feedback and again it's come to Jesus moment rob gotta confess and repents and then finally I think in time together and knowing his love language quality time it's huge so I have to ask her. Am I paying enough attention to you. And do you feel like I make you a priority or not. I just wanted to add something here because I feel like these Zor some of the great questions that we often feel like it's just the husband's job to do and to ask but I think for US wives. We need to be asking these questions to them so don't WanNa miss that I want people to understand. It takes both of us working until Dina tonight the you have to ask careful. Let's ask how to go about getting that question asked Yeah I love when he when he leads in that then I wanna follow and when he followed when I follow I wanNA fall that example by asking asking him those same questions. That's good now. That's really good man. This has been a great today experience and I do appreciate that vulnerability that you've brought in as you described the millennial attitude of authenticity. I mean it's good. That's the way we should all be. <hes> sometimes sometimes we we described too much but there are things that are learned in our culture and that you pick up and I think authenticity is a great thing. It's one of the reasons I'm so excited about the younger generation younger leadership in the church because I think they are connecting in ways. The older leadership failed to slow down and take notice of or to change behavior so that they were more real in allowed people to attached to the Gospel in easier ways so I love it. I see what is being done and I think it's a something that's led by by the Holy Spirit frankly I think that's what he's up to. What a wonderful message entered the ring fighting together for a gospel saturated marriage who doesn't want this book? Just call us here at focus on the family. Get a hold of us.

"Path grade is here on the please radio network. Welcome to it that way through the week. Course jeff will join us to chew the fat coming up in about half an hour. You know as always kind of a broken record but there's a lot to get to today just every single day. It's it's a selfish choice. On what using what you don't use really. I mean i think we might be up to seventeen and a half or even eighteen minutes of information and entertainment jammed into just to our a bowl statement tanker. I know i know today feeling it. I'm feeling it. i think it's true. We are living in a cloud and piven world. Aren't we sure they're throwing more things and you could possibly imagine at us From the border to the key to the covid situation to the inflation situation the us economy. That's going to hell in a handbasket and this was the guy who is going to. He was gonna take care of the little people heart. A little people doing right now. Are you doing if you're not to among the wealthiest americans the upper one percent. A bet you're doing really well with the higher gas prices in the inflation at the grocery store. These are the things that hurt. Poor people the most the middle class the most start raising the price of gas. Like it's going up and people are hurt by that. You feel the pinch at the grocery store. There hurt by that. I mean you were going through the list. There we've got race issues gender bullcrap yup covid mandates and and and edicts. Wherever you begin. I dunno. I don't know they were so concerned about the border in the children. D'ici in each forty children up to cheating or suffering at the border. I can't believe it the children they don't give a rat's anus About the children conditions for the migrant children at the border right now more than forty five hundred migrant children mostly teenage boys at fort bliss in texas so this is just at fort bliss. They've got somebody just went into it and went into their enormous tents. That are unsanitary filthy. One of federal employees told reason that it was just appalling. Said i'm not gonna lie. We've got people dropping like flies. It's talking about the employees are leaving in droves because it's just not something that they're used to this facility is growing fast and we're getting kids on a daily basis. We don't have enough staff to maintain but keep in mind. There's no crisis here. This isn't a crisis all he said. I've been into one dorm one time and i was like yeah. I'm not going back. They're they're filthy dirty. There's food on the floor. There's wet spots all over the place. The beds are dirty. I don't know what's going on. Or who's responsible for ensuring that dorms need to be clean but we all need to be responsible for telling the miners to clean up after themselves. We have already caught staff with minors. Inappropriately Is that okay with you. Guys he asked rhetorically. I hope not. We've also caught minors with minors. You know we've got teenagers in this shelter. What's happening with teenagers. Hormones raging out of control. It's important that we maintain safety and vigilant be vigilant Stop what is happening if you don't watch these kids and you're not the one who's going to step in. Who's going to be that person to stand up for the miners. Because that's what we're here for. So the children are also being ignored. Apparently when they request Medicare some of the incidents and complaints. We're getting also or that we've got miners were requesting medical due to not feeling well and staff members were telling. There's nothing wrong with you. Go back to your bed in the age of covid. There's nothing wrong with you. Go back to bed. you're not going to test them or anything. These are legitimate complaints. And it's my duty to let you know what's going on because if you know who these people are. You need to report them. So that's what's happening right now as the border. It's going really well y- because these are the democrats so they cared deeply. Oh my gosh. These are the ones who are filled with feelings in motion. And they love the little person and they love minorities in the love. Immigrants these non-documented citizens. We love him. Much day. One you know. They opened up the border. I didn't care what kind of consequences. And what kind of conditions they were going to be creating with their with their policies and it took over two months. I look this up. It was march twenty fourth. When biden named kamala harris as you know in charge of the border march twenty four so it took him over two months to realize that they created a nightmare and now we are sixty four days later. Harris has not yet visited the border. Still yeah she's. They're not interested in the border. Afc crying about this on video. I haven't seen it lately. That's all they talk about in the early years of trump was how terrible his treatment was of these unaccompanied children at the border. That's all we heard. Torn out of the arms of their mothers over and over and over again. They bellyache about it now. They couldn't care less than could not care less. It's i mean you know that this is who they are but then you see an action. It's still kind of hard to believe it's just. It's it's stunning. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three by the way Support for israel among young adults is down forty one points. Oh in three years three years you never say i. I don't know that. I've ever seen a movement either positive or negative in one of these polls that that that is that drastic that fast evangelical christians in the united states. Who in the past have been staunch supporters of israel Not so much anymore. A new survey found that this is eighteen to twenty nine year olds and this was an online poll conducted between march and april surveyed over seven hundred individuals just to three point seven percent point margin of error with ninety five percent level of confidence ninety five percent. Sure that this is accurate in these are eighteen to twenty nine year old. Did you say evangelical. Yeah seventy five percent is what it was three years ago. It's now thirty. Four percent that is after a president that demographic largely loved donald trump Was the biggest ally in the oval office. Ever right that makes no sense at all well except for the indoctrination they're getting. They're getting indoctrinated in schools And and this is the effect. This is the result so thirty three point six. When you break it down. It might not be quite as bad as it sounds on the surface when you break it down thirty three point. Six percent of young evangelical said excited with israel twenty four point three percents said they sided with the palestinians and forty two point two percent Didn't take any site at all. Support for israel though has precipitously dropped And it's the same survey by the way from three years ago to on the question of a two state solution. Forty five percent said they support the establishment of a palestinian state alongside israel. Thirty five percent said their neutral plurality of young evanger locals locals forty one and half percent said israel treats palestine fairly twenty two percent said they don't and thirty five point seven said they were neutral on the issue. Now what's the biggest problem. The the biggest problem is probably split between the propaganda the get in school and from their and and the lack of knowledge about the situation. Because i i think a good number of them don't know and don't care what's going on in the middle east. They couldn't care less in fact half of those polled admitted to having very limited knowledge or no knowledge of the israeli palestinian conflict. And so there you have it if They don't know anything about it if they do. They've been propagandized by extreme idiotic wing teachers and you know what they haven't heard they never. They've never heard that. The palestinians already had their two state solution offered to them from the beginning in nineteen forty seven with the un participate partition when they allocated fifty four percent of the area for a state called palestine. forty-six percent would go to a jewish state of israel. And by the way as we mentioned last week jerusalem would not be and israeli city. It would be an international city overseen by the un but instead of course they went to war in nineteen forty eight the palestinians and the arabs to take it all they've also never heard that the real abusers of the palestinians are the arabs. Who really honestly don't want anything to do with them. They've never heard that. The palestinians who have good jobs in israel have to keep it from their friends and neighbors in the gaza strip because if they found out that they were working for jews their families could be killed. So they don't even they don't even admit that they're working in israel. They've never heard to this day. That the plo charter. And certainly hamas calls for the destruction of israel. They don't hear any of those things because the media doesn't talk about them and they're not talked about in schools. It's always the poor picked on palestinians who are just bullied by the big bad israelis. She's eight or nine million people surrounded by one hundred million arabs who hate their guts and want them dead. Want to drive him into the sea. But it's the palestinians that were just all broken up about he's mean meanwhile israel is do you know that actually have and they've actually built their society into something civilized. Something that resembles what's going on in the west probably stolen. I mean what. What if the palestinians built in the gaza strip bombs. I know the answer to this. One is bombs they build bums good answer. Good answer survey said number one number one answer. What do i win You win a brand new. Two thousand and twenty one cadillac seville door handle screw. Congratulations congratulations where do i collect it. I would like this See the man after the show will take care of you. who's that. Yeah you'll see. I feel like i'm not even gonna win. That this whole thing feels like you don't even think you're getting the door handles. Scroll corey the man. Who's giving me. The door handles screwed. I feel i answer to this afterwards. All right triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety-three also add pat unleashed on twitter. It's just a is ridiculous World and ridiculous policies and while biden pretends to support israel. he's not really lifted. A finger to support israel as we told you last week the ceasefire came from. Who did it come from the administration. No no came from egypt. Egypt did his work for him. Yeah yeah the egyptians did it crazy. But what biden did do was to lift sanctions on the pipeline in europe for for the russians so they could finish up their their pipeline. Now he did that. Not because he's in love with vladimir putin like a you know donald trump thank. You was an agent for the russians. Come on and where do you think the sanctions game from. Didn't come from the biden administration. They just they're the ones who dropped it and he's not getting any kind of flack for that. Hey how come. You're pro russia. Hey what kind of weird relationship you have with vladimir putin. You're not hearing any of that. So dropped the sanctions on the russia to germany pipeline. Nord stream two. Because it's almost completely finished way. What i'm really glad you didn't let the let that get in the way when the keystone pipeline was up in the air Does that make any sense at all. Yeah we it was almost finished so we said go ahead if these exact actions were taken by donald trump let russia finish their pipeline keystone Gosh you're an agent of russia which he probably in hindsight shall have done that because then you put the left in a bind like. Oh my gosh. Do we support the environment more. Do we support the narrative. That trump is putin's lapdog. Gosh i can't take this can't take it it's gonna be. It's gonna be a very thirsty day on this end i can already tell it is. It's hard to believe it. Honestly is he actually had the gym blitz to say i've been opposed to nord stream from the big. That's the pipeline from the beginning. Now they know how. I feel convinced me. Oh man do counterproductive to keep the sanctions because it was almost completed I don't even understand statement. That doesn't even make sense. White house announced biden will meet with Putin in geneva next month all right to go so well for us. Oh yeah you know. We got the upper hand there On our hundred fifty year old man who has no cognitive ability anymore going up against vladimir putin the only question about that meeting is will vladimir putin right in on bareback on a horse with a shirt off. Yeah i'd like to see that's that's honestly only question with meeting. Oh my gosh. I seriously. I want that meeting televised. It'd be in order to we or do we probably not crowley on all right.

Two patriots says dispatch gray unleashed unique I love the fact that they're also going back on the wuhan lab theory. That was so ridiculous and insane when trump said it well because he said it that we didn't believe it. Wait what that's exactly what. cnn innocent. That's what they're saying. Yeah because it came from trump. It was conspiracy theory. But now it's coming from biden whose brain dead so we know it's true. Oh oh all right. Do you want to play cnn clip. Would you like to see that. Because they're fun. This matters understanding where kuroda virus and how the pandemic began matters a lot of discussion lab leak. I think was clouded early on. Because they're winning the suggestion by some that. It was somehow a chinese weapon that that caused this. That's not what we're talking about here. We're talking about a lab accident. But we've come a long way from people dismissing this as a conspiracy theory to a lot of people taking seriously it for a second listen to the spin get out of the fact that they blew this off and discredit and discounted it for a year just because of donald trump and he's already snuck in chinese propaganda that it was an accident. Not right liberate anything. They weren't making a weapon or blah blah. Remember anybody saying it was necessarily a weapon me thinks you protest too much Hanan dot is amazing. Did did he specifically cited as a weapon. I i know that they. He alluded to the fact that it was created in the lab and then it escaped. I don't know that necessarily said it was. Why is he. Goes no what purpose you would be doing with that. But and there there's been reports over the years. I mean going way back that. They're messing around with biological weapons for weaponry. Yes so still. Take the spin on this now to to go back and try to rewrite the way. Cnn handled this thing as amazing. See the rest of this. We have john and look. I do think it's important to remember that part of the issue when this was first being reported on and discuss that after the pandemic had begun with the then president trump and mike pompeo the Secretary of state both suggested they had seen evidence that this was formed in a lab and they also suggested it was not released on purpose but they refused to release the evidence showing what it was because of that that made this instantly political. I think that there was you know example thousand when the trump administration learned that we own credibility over and over again people are not immediately going to believe you especially in an election year however that does not mean. It's not worth discussing. There has been a allbeit relatively quiet focus on whether that was the origin of the virus in it is compounded by the fact that There aren't have not been clear answers from chinese officials about it and that investigators trying to find out the origin have been stymied. So i do look. We're in a different period of this. John but i also think remember because i think it's getting reframed in a way that's not true to what happened. I don't mean here. I debate by trump supporters about what house and raised a lot of people. Want just answer. Why people just want answers and cnn's we go for together. We just want answers reframed. Just look at that report. Oh man as they're talking in the upper left corner. It's a picture of their god. Anthony fauci Just because he's now not convinced. Oh well nath how. there's something there. Yes he's not convinced and part of their argument was that president trump didn't come forward with any evidence what evidence has found. She produced that he's got doubts about this. Whatever denies china produced that it wasn't created in that lab in they act like this is all brand new. They bring up three months ago. They just referred to well. We've been stymied when we tried to investigate. Well the who went over though. Yeah i thought we already got the answer. They didn't report on that one. Sixty minutes had that clip. Remember that guy went there and he for what are if you're going to work in china on corona viruses and try and understand their origins you should involve the people who know the most about that and for better for worse i do. He says the team did look into the leak. Theory during a visit with lab scientists refined deemed it extremely unlikely extreme said do audit the lab and they annually. Did you audited after the outbreak. Yes was anything found test. You're just taking their word for it. we do. There's a limit to what you can do. And we right up to that limit. We ask them of course vetted in and the game. We got to be believable. Leave -able correct. Renting warrant the chinese and in a cover-up they destroyed in and punish scientists who were trying to give evidence on this. Very question of the origin will vote wasn't task to find out if childhood covered up the article. I know i'm just saying doesn't that make you wonder. We didn't see any evidence of any false reporting in china and that's fine and we ask them. We asked them and they said now. So what are we supposed to do. Of course we believe them of sorts That's fascinating seriously. It's really fast. But cnn didn't didn't object to that report no at the time. They waited until their god spoke and now that they're god anthony. Fauci is quote not convinced Now it's a big thing. So they're spending this thing. Washington post spinning this thing. Fact checker checker Glenn kessler wrote a timeline to explain how the wuhan lab leak theory suddenly became credible. What he say he writes that in recent months the idea that he that it emerged from the wuhan institute of raji once dismissed as a ridiculous conspiracy. Theory has gained new credence. He was one of those. In fact. kessler was one who called it a ridiculous conspiracy theory and now now. He's supporting the theory. For one thing efforts to discover a natural source of the virus have failed gay so they can't find a natural source second early efforts to spotlight a lab leak often got mixed up with speculation that the virus was deliberately created as a bioweapon mixing ingredients in just like. Oh what are we gonna make rainbows today. The hell do you think they were doing. What are they said they want to do. I swear this media and what happened a few months ago that changed the political climate in this country. That would allow them to put this out there. Did we have a change in leadership at the top and now now now we can say this without trump getting the credit for for throwing this out there. It's exactly what's happening. This was part of kessler's fact check last spring against trump statements that the virus emerged from the lab questions about the virus. Origin brought a rush of alternative theories. Some claimed the virus was a bio weapon. Other suggested it had been altered for a scientific experiment or was simply viral. Sample that escape from the lab. Let's be clear no scientist. We spoke to the new. Corona virus was designed as a bioweapon. These are two distinct and separate ideas. Of course the first is about a purported fact in the second is about analysis of the fact. But they're conflating the two and that's That's why they're saying that. Well now now we're not conflating. The two and so maybe it was released from the lab because maybe it was something else. I see and by the way we can't spied and credit whatsoever as this thing goes forward because an inquiry was put in place at the state department. During the trump administration the biden administration shut down. As soon as they got into office he gets no credit and this he hasn't seen anything it's because she uttered at one time an interview. Now they're allowed to pursue this and they're still not going to chase down the truth By the way kessler one of the kesslers facts when he was fact checking. The trump claims was that in four years he claimed president trump made two thousand five hundred seventy three false or misleading claims. If they ever did they do that with obama because obama light every single day are they doing it with biden because he lies every single day you guys are shoddy. Well orders other pathetic. The washington post to cnn. And you're out in all of this. Is that well. We just can't trust trump so that's why we couldn't latch onto that theory a year ago. That's like ted cruz. Just said the media in particular the washington post is just pravda. Now they're just pravda so you you can't trust anything. They say anything they come up with. I mean look at the backflip. Here is amazing. Well it's good that we send us tax dollars over there to the wuhan lab. Yeah but i mean how much and and if that's the case i'm sure that's that's one of the very few expenditures that don't seem to be really solid expenditures that the american people want paul and got some progress yesterday. Did he go through. Some of the things that That the us funds in including a wuhan lab yesterday. Yeah that's what am author favorites from the national lab. One from kentucky we may never know whether the pandemic arose from the lab and wuhan but we do know that so far. No intermediate animal host has been discovered. Thousands of animals at the wet market have been looked at none of them have carried covid. Nineteen we've tried to infect covid nineteen into bats. It doesn't grow well and bats. It seems most adapted in suitable for humans. He may not know whether this ever arose out of wuhan lab. But i think gain of function research where we take a deadly virus sometimes much more deadly than covid and then we increase its transmissibility. Mammals is wrong in two thousand fourteen. Nih stopped all of this research. I'm using the same definition to say any gain of function research should not be funded in china with. Us taxpayer dollars. And i recommend it. Yes thank you mr president. I asked him to vitiate the sixty vote. Requirement for this amendment in your back time. Is there objection without objection. Loyd it passed by the way. Overall time has yielded back. The question is now on the amendment which passed it. Pass voice vote and hopefully we can stop sending money to this lab ran. Did talk about some other ways. Our tax dollars are being spent. We'll have to share that with you later on pat gray unleashed and he's on the blades. That kerley it's time to chew the fat not just true best.

And what am i. We posted here. That is oh my. Gosh oh my god get stopped sat in this room. Apparently she didn't bay never three days and She said in this room if they had to Sit in the bees had had to be a dark room and everyone was in a protective suit except her all right and they because they wanted to keep the bees calm and she took perfectly still for eighteen minutes video but they were crawling all over. She said that they you know they put plugs in her nose and ears to avoid any B.'s b.'s entering right and So she did that for this and gets bill really. According got stung weird individuals not good stung by the bees. Apparently hadn't seen her new movie at those who wish me dead. 'cause stronger just for good measure a little disappointing. Yes i really wanted it to be good too. i like. I like the action movies that she's in but not that good Good really disa-. My review is disappointing Really she is a firefighter Chorus struggling meets the kid on the run from the bad guys. The kid's dad the forensic father gets killed. They chased the wildfire giving away plot detail. Okay then all right spoiler alert. They live. I know it's been out two weeks as made a wapner. It's on hbo and it's coming in and out about thirteen million. So far worldwide. So is there a fire yes. He's a while okay or firefighters. You know of course. You can't have a wildfire firefighter with fire. Fire right and so she to come to grips with her pass. Loss was a warming. That's all that happens. Fires everywhere. I like never before ever witnessed on the face of this planet. We've never had fires before now. We have fires. Chances time cameo from smokey the bear. The show is smoke. Did that by the way. Just this is another. Little spoiler alert wasn't climate change. It wasn't climate was not climate change completely inaccurate. Then movie well you know. We have speaking of climate change. I'm not sure if you're aware but mainstream. Economists have deliberately and completely ignored scientific data and instead made up their own numbers guy. Steve king fellow at the university college london's institute for strategy resilience and security institute for strategy strategy resilience and security. I was wondering what his strategy claims economic forecasts predicting the potential impact of climate shed grossly estimate the reality and have delayed global recovery. Efforts aid thing that's going on. It's the underestimate of climate change. Thank you i say. The world's going to end in ten years. We really only have one thank you. It's pissing me off. Claims war level footing is required to have any hope of repairing the damage. Here we go. This is just getting declare war. So now i guess he believes that the scientists that don't believe that climate change caused the iceberg. The world's biggest iceberg now to break away the Named a seventy six the hundred miles long sixteen mile wide Broke off the at arctic shelf. Yeah that. They believe that that wasn't climate. Change just machines. It's just a natural cycle. Yeah it ice breaks off in fact more an indication that there's more ice because it got too heavy to be supported by the rest of it and it broke off my gosh. That's not a climate change thing. All i know the line. Thank you thank you. All i know is that they are grossly underestimating. The reality on boy and they have delayed global recovery efforts by decades. Yeah that's a big piece of ice floating out there too. Yes it is. I mean bigger than relocate. Like a football team there. Yeah that'd be kind of fun. yeah. I mean eventually. It's going to melt so you know minutes now for quite sometime now. Well light sometime. Still gonna melt. What else you got instead. Proving that No job is sacred. I'm all for a drone deliveries. And we see here jordans. Golf course His best has the uses drones to deliver goods to his special golfers out there in his luxury. Golf course brings them drinks and food or snacks or whatever they need at the At the grove. Eight pretty cool. Yeah it is. It's kind of cool. I you know the thing is. I'm all for drone deliveries seriously. I want i want to be able to order something from amazon and have it land at my house just like that one and land on the top of my house but when you're golfing yeah You have to have green girls. Girls girls carring not drones. I don't know the girls out there on thirteen eighteen when we've been talking about it for so long. Do we have to be michael jordan on a golf course in order to get drunk delivery. When is that going to happen for the homes learn. Well it is starting to happen around the country in places that are that have the rights that are delivering stuff. So it's close. It's close they're just have to get The go ahead from some of the municipalities and The faa is located in several areas around country. Already so it started. I mean it's why it is it here in. Dfw a huge hub for amazon. I don't know but it needs to happen. Air-traffic a bet. It's it's hard to work out that whole thing. It's an issue. It's a little bit of an issue because the air three thousand flights coming out of dfw dfw everyday. That's i don't know how they're going to work. I don't know either. I don't know either gonna do. You just mean they're going to fly a lot lower obviously right but still i mean landing planes in this area over and over and over and over over. You're going have the fronts. The go over our houses alone every day Just now not even the dfw. I mean just the alliance airport and they're all all the time hundreds of flights a day. Yeah so you figure it out right figuring out that i figured out yes ryan thank you. What are we paying you for. Because eventually they want to deliver in under an hour. It likely order it. You've got it in an hour. I mean that's amazing maze. That's what i mean. That's what i want a lot of. I wanna be able to have. It just dropped order. It is there eventually. We're all going to be six hundred pounds because we won't leave our house we just won't we won't get up we don't really need. We walked to the door. And that's about it. I could never see a scenario where is locked down inside their houses right. Thank you believe something like that happen right now. Opt right silly time you've mentioned we don't hear afc crying about the border But you know the reason we don't really see grind. Pat is because she's in therapy now. She's a therapy now. Injuries that season therapy following the trauma. She incurred from being inside the capitol complex grain. Ury even realized so the congresswoman she also and believe it faulted president donald trump's administration's treatment of latinos. As another reason. She's sought counseling. And she said i'm doing therapy but also i've just slowed down The trump administration had a lot of us especially the latino communities in a very reactive mode. And i've been putting myself in a more proactive. You're reactive representative presley convinced her that she went through trauma convinced beginning of the visitor that you did go through trauma she said. I think after january six. I took some time and it was really depressed. I explained to her. What happened to me like the day of because i ran into her office we saw the video she was like you need to recognize trauma those are quotes. And then i was like. Yeah yeah i like like. I do need to recognize you know like like trauma like whatever you know. Whatever like just like over. We saw the video. It was security that was hollering looking for. Yeah she was hiding from security. I mean right. She was scared police. Were going to do because it was really likely that they were going to harm her. And some was so anyway in the capital. No no she was other stupid building right. yeah she wasn't even in there but like i had like trauma drama and like whatever like yeah like whatever representative presley convinced me that whatever the worst the worst unbelievable worst seriously unbelievable gray is least welcome. Great triple eight nine hundred thirty. Three ninety-three pat unleashed on twitter. Where d- mx dm tweets thao. She has the track record of an unemployed map. Lewis meteorologist and yet. We've trusted him to inform us about infectious diseases for forty years. What does that say about us. Yep yeah what a lot of things about. It's just one of them Lone wolf with the number of times jeffey said wildfire. I'm surprised pat didn't break into song. Good point i know you know the classic rand paul. In wildfire. she ran calling wildfire. She ran into colleague. Go murphy right exactly by martin knows michael murphy is believe what you'd find on that particular record. But i think later on you went by ethics and stranger with a needle tweets if a drone accidentally deliver something to me is it finders keepers asking for a friend answer to that is yes from poop. Leah's careful some pilot may think the delivery drone is a ufo. That's probably happened many times. Cape katie martin. Shouldn't we be dead now from acid rain. Yes yes that and the hole in the ozone which should be you know because the ozone is there. I guess to siphon off some of those harmful rays and now with that whole you don't have it well except right well except for the fact that no. It's not no no it repaired. It's oh yeah. Is there even a hole left. It's back no highway. The train was somebody's making money. Dials not the and apparently acid. Rain doesn't follow any work. Because i talk about that in three years disappeared. All right triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety-three also pat unleashed on twitter. John cena especially now the hub. The crecy that's coming from the nba. And hollywood is staggering. Isn't it sure is that surely is because they have no no vision of themselves alpha aware. They don't have any self awareness as all laura's jeffey said no vision of the show they don't it's just too muck info and that they don't it needs to be a square jeffey saying no no vision initiative so they do not far better way to say i like it. Let's go with it. You know vision of themselves and it's true yet is it is true. They're all about the oppressed and man. They love freedom and the hate fascism and they don't like oppression well except for the impression from china they love that sh they love the concentration camps for the whitacre's shish the persecution and the genocide really of the week. There's shh don't say anything. Though and his big heinous crimes that he had to apologize up one side and down another they do. He actually mentioned taiwan us. He said he said the word. Taiwan again corby. How long is the delay this program because now he said it not only that he called it a country rather than i wanna province. Yeah but he may not understand because he profusely apologized. I think we have the apology here. Don't we okay good. Check out the apologize award for a second. He apologized in mandarin. Yeah oh yeah you. As a rule speak man driving. He does learn for this apologize. I think he actually does speak me. I don't think he just picked this up for this stupid dozen Well i for one. don't really. I do mandarin chinese. A lot of people are shocked by that is thought i spoke all languages. I'm sure let's see it all right in mandarin. Here's his apology bouche. A fearful have hung miniature us so in one of them. That i found one. Whoa whoa. I made a mistake. royal everyone asks me ruge will if i can use chinese julia fast and furious. Yeah so you gave me lots of interview information okay. I made a mistake will be made a mistake which say right. now it's so so so's important. Huckle respect china and chinese people in hon. I'm so sorry yeah youth. I'm sorry. I'm sorry very sorry to understand i. I love china and chinese people. I'm sorry yeah you said that okay. I love chinese people to come on serious. Sorry for he never told us well mistake. You made a mistake calling taiwan a country and he may not have heard because it's only been seventy years it is a country so Can expect though that with seventy yesterday. I mean it's like the surgeon general for for smokers that just happened in nineteen sixty three. You probably haven't heard yet that it may cause cancer. I didn't even know what happened did happen. Yeah it's weird now. We're almost sixty years ago. As a matter of fact it's kind of fifty eight. I would say at this point. That is pathetic. If he has one american fan left far too many minutes unreal. I think it's fair to say that. John cena has no himself clear about that but he does actually have vision of himself. He loves just looking at himself. And thinking these mr superstar. And i'm going to apologize to china. Know speaking is in their tongue. And everything's gonna be okay. I still wanna make millions of dollars from china. He must have a cut of the take. He's got some backside money there that he's concerned with because it made one hundred and thirty six million dollars over the weekend in china and good lobbying china decides that they're not gonna give that money to them. That's a nice day that we're not gonna pay it. I don't know what the arrangement is with hollywood. How they get those receipts but he wants them wants the money. He wants the cash that i mean. How could you have an ounce of respect for that guy after this one ounce tie. One is a freaking ally of the united states of america. China is trying to bury us in many different marched in the streets for freedom were marching in the streets for communism right taiwan and hong kong needle battling for for liberty and freedom and and to to maintain that which they've had for some time now and china is just stopping on both of them or trying to stomp on. Taiwan is what they've already squelched hong kong and now they want to do the same thing to taiwan It's really. It's unconscionable that these people are such unbelievable cowards. Unbelievable cowards. wow. How do you even employ the sky. Course it's hollywood so they're going to be fine with it. You're going to find cheese. And the ridiculous way he apolo- i am so so so so so so so so so so sorry i am. This is very very very very very very very important. Be any more pathetic. Could it well and in chinese amazing amazing triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three also at pat unleashed on twitter You know what if he had said what if any. How are we ever going to prove where that virus came from. When you've got this kind of mentality you're not going to. I mean if we're gonna back if we're going to backtrack on every single issue that involves china. Emily vardi backtracked on this because they tried to make it try and this is why too because so many people are concerned with their overseas market in china that they insist that china not be blamed for anything. And so. it's racist if you say. This virus came from china. Wow we better overcome this. Because it's really dangerous. No doubt about that might as well put gijon ping in charge of this country right now. We're already stop. If you look at the connections between the biden's and china man. I i wouldn't have ever guessed that this you know again five ten years ago. It's it's really startling. When you think about it and you think how bad we thought it was in two thousand nine in two thousand ten with obama and then you look and you see what transpired. daycare thousand eight two thousand and it's like the obama administration were part of the founding fathers. Go to now tesli. I mean actually said the other day. He actually gave trump credit for fast tracking the vaccine. What did he really yeah. There was some interview he was where he i mean. He gave the trump administration credit. And i was like wow am i. Yeah that doesn't happen. The right at doesn't have slipped into a parallel universe. Digests so. But i i mean i certainly couldn't believe it and it will it so you're right. I mean it was a definite other lifetime during obama and we thought it was so bad. nothing nothing yeah But it's gonna get better because this president is in charge large so sharm yelled power. Thank you sharp as a tack. Man he really is. You really attack. We showed you yesterday again.

Side of city hall is free and clear and you know there's some some some policemen here to make sure that access from the west side city hall into the aqap safe and of course there's free ice cream so komo kids so free ice cream. Come on down. Kids get a vaccine. That's why the coroner is running this whole thing just in case because we're taking care of things in one so that's great when when they decided that location they obviously didn't have any of that They couldn't see themselves The didn't have a vision thing right free ice cream though. Yeah but what does he do. I mean this is insane. This is out of control. I mean we're having to bribe kids with ice cream without parental consent. What is the deal. This is weird man jeffrey. Did you get the vaccine. It still vaccine both my friend vaccine. Hesitant. yeah. I don't blame you We have some calls here from people who got the vaccine or know somebody. And and i got to tell about the magnets on where they got the vaccine. We'll talk to them coming up here in a minute It's interesting certainly interesting interest. And they're going to try to tell you that this is all conspiracy nonsense the already al. It absolutely is not. It's absolutely one hundred percent real on the magnet sticking to the vaccine site hundred percent real. Yeah jeffey i'll give you some ice cream. Okay it's a hundred percent real. No you the vaccine just do cream is all yours. Come on down to the coroner's office is pat. Gray unleashed triple eight. Nine hundred thirty three ninety-three also pat unleashed on twitter. Luke thuan finnity look to infinity and beyond her just to infinity just to infinity. That's old school tweets us this How do we know people's arms weren't magnetic before the covid do previous vaccine could be the cause. I'd like to see a before. And after video to be one hundred percent convinced. I got both madeira shots. In the same arm. I'm not magnetic gee-gee tweets So is it safe to call the call it. The china virus now. The media has admitted their utter incompetence. Zelda bird tan. Well there's a freudian slip. If an i ever heard one vaccine center at the coroner's office exactly and from patent me do it. They're definitely thinking ahead. Coroner running the vaccine site running law and business. Just jump security forum. That's all let's go to an in washington. Hey an you're on the blaze photo. I just tell my experience or not so it works okay so i went Thursday to get my first shot. I had to get the fire and Within twenty four hours. I had seen videos. And yes they don't know if i was wanting magnetic before this started but I took my arm and it's back and at this point i can do a key. I do. i mean. I don't understand the concept the coins because they aren't magnetic but i can do a surgical i do. A nail clipper my stick to your arm. That's incredible just at the injection site right just at the injection site and sometimes hitting this. Sometimes it does stick on sometimes. It's not a strong And also say. I really don't think it's like a microchip or anything like i'm not into the conspiracy theories but has to be some type of chemical response for this created and i'm curious to see what's that me to and and again you don't know if you could if this was Able to happen before the vaccine. I don't I've always had low iron. So i don't necessarily think this is all i realize most people don't say hey there's some clippers. Will it stick to my arm. I get that but So have you tried a penny yet because people are saying pennies. Stick to you. We have images of penny sticking on a on a listener. Actually there's that. I know and a quarter but to provide the argument on the other side. They can stick to the other side to Might be skin but hold on a penny right now okay. We go excited. I am to actually. I've got fingernail clippers next Either arm for me. Yes sick about an inch away from me induction site and are you freaking out at all or are you just thinking. It's a party trick. So i'm not necessarily freaking out just because they don't exactly know today. No that doesn't seem i do right now. Are not getting the second shot though. You're not you're not gonna. You're not gonna do it again. Yeah that's interesting. Why are you afraid like a walk by a car and it will slam into you. Or something losing my. You're going to become ms magneto. Parley into a superpower yard. It's just more so the concept like if it's doing this now like what else can we deal right right appreciate it. Thanks a lot has been your reaction to the now. She's not go ahead for the first twenty four hours again. Because i already had it bad elsa had a pretty bad orig- reaction to it to the they also have said that if you have covid one shot may be all you need if you've had color the yeah all right. Thanks a lot appreciate it. Also they say if you've already had it maybe you don't need to get it because your your chance of having a severe reaction goes up to three times. I if i had it. I don't think i i'm pretty sure i would not get it like keith. Kids is adamant about it but he shouldn't get it because he's already had it. I think he go with music. Do you think he should go. Yeah okay do. But what i think you should. You should closer than those. Get it from the coroner just sastra's then just in case. Oh who was just said this. A couple of tweets came in along that lines would you do it for brokers and yeah and then and then what did somebody else say a cook. Anna had partner then right comment about brooks and then extra white just said Luring kids in with ice cream. isn't that called grooming behavior. No kidding I'm looking for this let's see here. hang on. let me try to find this real quick. I thought i saw somewhere that. And i need to confirm this but the people who came down with sars in two thousand three apparently aren't getting covid so that would suggest that it's a curl writes the covy to ensuring that would suggest that maybe your your immunity last for a very long time when you get this kind of maybe infection so juvenile. Even less of a reason for me to get the vaccine was interesting. I have a doctor that told me. Don't get the vaccine under any circumstances. Since i had such a bad case you also have a talk show host. Who told you the same thing unless you go to the corner and you also have a person has told you to get it. So i'm torn. What do i do. Do i go with jeff advice. Yeah it's never go with jeffries advice. That's the answer. All right the uncle of chris cruise wife so chris cruises wife's uncle got the dern shot yesterday yesterday. Yeah so chris Shot this video and it looks a little something like this. There we go. That's the is that the penny no a battery a watch battery totta now. I don't know who julia is. I don't know if he's still connected to her. This is like a mistake. He made He was drunk one night but There you go the the battery sticks to his arm and you can't say he's holding his arm in such a way where it would stick regardless or it would stay there because his arm would have to be horizontal for that to happen. It's not it's vertical so it could be a reaction for different bodies for the plenty of the shows obviously doesn't work for some people right of what's in the shower to your reaction and then that causes you know a small portion of your body to become magnetized for a brief period of time. Get over it still. There's so many there's so many things we don't know about it. We don't know what's in it. They haven't told us what's in it. It hasn't been approved by the fda their immune to lawsuit There so i don't know. I mean it's it's a little nerve racking to think about hold on jeffey. Justice old are currently dealing with magnetic arms to quote. Get over it so it sounds like you're ready to get it then Or should you get over it and wrote the sleeve. Let's do this go up to canada. Get it from the coroner. We could do it on air. You wanna do it friday. We'll get somebody in here to give it to you on the air. Good with that He's going to get back to back.

They do in fact in almost every case where some racial threat repeated nasty words on you know in a threatening way against a minority in almost every single case. Everyone i know of. They've all been hoaxes. Police last month told the blaze that a white highschool student who said she was falsely accused of sending racist messages was not a suspect in the headline grabbing incident Which the superintendent of white bear lake area schools in minnesota had referred to as a hoax. Now it turns out according to police reports obtained through public records By the college fix the school had stated that a person of color created the instagram account. From which the racist messages were sent. Who could have seen that surprise. Every time previously all that officials were willing to say. Was that the responsible. Party is a female juvenile which clouded the origin of the racist messages that spurred a student walkout and a protest and a lot of fear and a lot of false accusations and they got everybody all excited again based on a law and it's all based on a lie as always it was a hoax sent under false pretense. The student poses no threat to students of color. It was a student of color. They won't say which color which is asinine but as always in these events to no charges are of course because it's okay. Yeah it's fine. It's fine to do the hoax. The false the e create all kinds of division within the school in the community. Don't worry about that Because you won't be charged. You're going to have to start charging these people with crimes so we can put a stop to this once and for all they know if there's no repercussions they're going to keep doing it. Why not they're just trying to so division here it's really bad and i don't understand why they continually don't pursue this amazing amazing then.

Correct offend can you and this place costs forty seven thousand dollars a year. I mean that's almost as much as harvard. That's four thousand. A year less than harvard costs to support that they're covering. Yes that's right that's right. Thank you jeff for that for that analysis columbia grammar school and preparatory school on the upper west side founded in seventeen sixty four oldest nonsectarian independent school in new york and now has porn classes available to kids between sixteen and seventeen years old The attendees sexuality workshop most believed would.

Podcast #939: Streaming and Cord Cutting
"Welcome to the HDTV PODCAST. Featuring guys are under dairy in. Afraid Russell now the HDTV PODCAST. Welcome to Episode Nine Thirty Nine the HDTV and home theater. Podcast this is Friday March Thirteenth Yuga. Yuga nother episode of the. Hdtv hunter podcast for you are. Is it a freaky day for you so freaky Friday third into not a freaky Friday? It is a normal Friday for me and just guessing right now. Because it's not even Friday yet. Then you ask me that so. I tried it. Yeah I'm asking look into your crystal ball and will it be a freaky Friday? You're saying now looking into the Crystal Ball. No IT WILL NOT BE. I see myself doing some woodworking in the afternoon. Doing some work in the morning and then Enjoying some music and Bourbon Friday night. Nice Yeah I don't see myself switching bodies with any of my boys or anything on Friday so I'm predicting also not a freaky Friday for me as well but you know what I tell you that would actually be Kinda cool to go back into like a twenty year old body and You know go to USC big man on campus. It seems like it would be super weird though right it would definitely be weird. Yeah yeah I'd be trips me out. I mean everyone does it as if. Hey this could totally be cool to go back to be young again. But now I think that would mess with your brain way too many different ways. So let me ask you this. I've I've thought about this before. Like I said I can go back to high school with the knowledge that I have now Things would be so different and it would be because now you're a fifty six year old man living in eighteen year old body and then I thought about it. Although the bodies only eighteen the mind is fifty six. So that kind of makes you a creeper. Doesn't it exactly? That's what I was thinking is that you're like an eighteen year old dude and is eighteen year old women and that would be normal. But not for me. 'cause me think about that creeps me out so yes. I have thought about it but in my mind is it has nothing to do with that. It was mostly sports. I would totally have a different approach to playing football and baseball in high school. And there'd be all kinds of other things I would do. I'd write myself notes. Invest in apple and Google Invest in Microsoft. All these things. I would have tried to leave myself note so that when I switched back to my fifty eight year I'm fifty eight years old. Not Six fifty eight year old body. My eighteen year old self when he came back with. Say Oh what are these notes? Okay better invest in Apple Google Microsoft. Then I'd be sitting there really rich. That's the scenario where you sort of do the Mardi fly you go back in time right but if you just ended up switching into like a younger body than I mean there's a Lotta stuff. I know that I could get away with in school that I was too afraid to get away with when I was a kid that like it was just kind of a normal kid. Afraid of authority sort of thing that now I I knew I could get away with a whole lot more stuff and I could have a whole lot. More fun in school But the whole other side of the of being an adult in high school just kind of freaks me out all right. Let's go to another approach. My Dad God Russell. He was very strict Person He he was educated engineer. He always was kind of and this was more of the parents back then. Thought I didn't know anything you know. And what are you know? You're just a kid right so imagine now with what I know. I go back to my eighteen year old self. My Dad at that time would probably be about forty so at this point. I've got like eighteen years on him right and so I I start challenging him on things but not in a way that would get me in trouble because no matter what I still respected my dad and did whatever his wishes were but I would. I would kind of put things out there. That would cause him to think like. Where did that come from you know and not be disrespectful but challenge them on things when he would tell me something that I knew was wrong and I had google to prove them wrong because nowadays when my kids challenge me on something I go prove it to me whereas back then you literally have to go to a library to look something up and then you had to go through microfilm and microfiche to find articles that supported your opinion? Now you just type that into a search engine and you can have the results in in no time but I would challenge him on all kinds of things in the thing. I'd probably end up giving them a nervous breakdown because he's like. Oh this kid's GonNa kill me. Yeah you know I think anybody who's been listening to the show for awhile knows that I can ever once in a while. Have a little bit of a mouth on me and I certainly did when I was younger. And and unfortunately with my parents to as well But Yeah If if I knew then what I know now I would have been called my doubt and so many things that you just made that up. Didn't you you have no idea what you're talking about. Because I can look back on times in life where he told me things or said things had to happen a certain way and he was just making it up because I know me as a parent and a lot of cases. I'm just making it up. I'm going with what I think is like the best answer but I have no idea and I you know I would have challenged him so much more. It's a good thing actually back then. Yeah I didn't know then what I know now. The one thing I would have done is when I was younger. I would've had him quit smoking a lot earlier than he did because he ended up dying of lung cancer and the Doctor Said Smoking Kinda was what push that on so I would have been like annoying in his face. Kind of I'm saving your life. You know kind of thing all right enough of that let's get into some Home Theater and That was freaky Friday discussion.

Supporter but when a piece of HD GUY. Knowledge improves my home theater. I want to say thanks through a CAF POW house. Hd Guys help let me count the ways. I ratings DOT com. You introduce me to this website. And through their in-depth review in analysis. I saved six hundred dollars on a new. Tv because the twenty eighteen model was just as good as the twenty nineteen. Little aside here. I spent some time on ratings dot com. Because I realized that I've still in my analysis paralysis on the new TV and I've been using ratings dot com to do the exact same thing but matt continues on hang on spoiler alert. You're going to see that analysis paralysis goes back to twenty thirteen. Yeah Yeah Yeah no kidding. Aright so Matt's continues on audio gone. He said I needed to channel amp to power a second zone and I wanted something a bit better than just an off. The shelf amp through the audio gone marketplace found a use rotel amp. That sounds great not to mention the weekly newsletter from audio. Gone where you can see these incredible list listening rooms people build. I tried to get a pair of six foot. Tall Wilson Audio speakers but the twenty thousand dollar price tag couldn't make it through the Finance Committee and says Bang for the buck guides. You guys do a great job reviewing lists of TV's and receivers that give the best value for the dollar. I picked up an APR that you recommended and was really impressed with the options in performance for only four hundred dollars and last but not least svs while my twenty year. Old Validation still works. It was time to find something new. And you've mentioned svs several times. The sub is the heart of any home theater. So I was a bit skeptical buying a huge of online without hearing at first but I pulled the trigger on a PB. Three thousand and holy but kickers Batman thing is amazing. I don't have a dedicated home theater room. So it's in our combined media area kitchen slash family room while watching the movie. A quiet place as the monster was walking up the stairs. Each footstep shook the house in every dish in wine. Glass was rattling. I'm laughing and my wife was like. Isn't this bit much when a sub makes you giggle like a schoolboy? It's pretty good. And then Matt finishes with congratulations on fifteen years. I know have been with you guys for at least twelve since ours recommendation in two thousand eight bridge. Abcd I'll as seventy year projection TV. I actually owned one of those. Jvc's sorry that was me and another aside there. He says here's to another fifteen years changing our lives one. Hdtv at a time. Thanks Again Matt. So brayden is sent the Does email onto my contact over. Svs because he put in a great word for svs and then he ready goes. Oh you guys are coming up. On fifteen years. We should collaborate on a giveaway. So I'm in the middle of that. I have no idea what's going to come of it. But I'm hoping that I can get something lockdown that on our anniversary we can announce a really cool giveaway with svs or all right. And then Sean fess lers fasteners email. He says What have we got here guys? I'm a longtime listener ever. Since I received my Ipod Nano over ten years ago. You know when I read stuff like this brain. Disa- me interjecting. When I hear that people been listening to us for that long. It just makes me so happy. And it's like we have these friends and I recognize tons of the emails and sometimes I'll think about someone who we would exchange emails with frequently and then I don't hear from them and I say oh I hope they didn't drop out and then every now and then we'll get an email and it's this great connection that we have with everybody. I wish there was a way we could do. Some sort of Community event where we could all kind of get together but I was looking at. Were all our listenership is now granted. It's like ninety five percent in North America but We do have listeners. All over the world so maybe we need to look at some sort of Online thing we're bringing you and I get on a we just chat with everyone. 'cause I see some people do it on On Youtube and maybe we don't do anything other than just chat and see who shows up we'd have to Kinda announce it in advance. So is that something you'd be up for. Yeah totally virtual HD guys on well. We'll talk and I see the people when they read the comments and we talk about you know going back in time and you know taking over our eighteen year old bodies again all right so let's get onto To Shawn's email here he says I've heard that some setups are extremely dark with hd our content. And I would like to hear what your experience has been with this and how to prevent it. What the recommendations that you have to mitigate the issue issue backstory I entered the HGTV world world in two thousand and six. And I had a front projector in a ninety two inch screen installed in my basement on embarrassed to admit that. I still have the same projector receiver at this early stage. I'm looking at projectors as well as L. C. D.'s and all displays and that's from Sean and he's in Hartford Wisconsin so A the issue of the darker scenes in HDR is. I don't have that but that's because I typically watch movies in the evening not during the day and yes the scene some scenes. We'll be a little bit darker but because we watch with the lights down I can still see detail whereas I think if you're watching in a very bright room it could make it hard to see detail but beyond that I don't have any Input and I and I do know that is an issue and some people have complained about it. The other thought I had a Brayden was when blu rays first came out. Do you remember some of the discs. Just weren't very good in a lot of the studios. Were still trying to figure out how to master for Blu Ray discs. I'm wondering if some of that is going on with hd our studios are trying to figure out how to use HD are yeah. I mean that's entirely possible but also Referring backup to Matt's email ratings dot com does give you two categories in their on. Hdr performance for every TV that they review and some are with content. Just kinda dimmer than others that are brighter and do better with HDR content. So it's it's probably part the content itself and then there's probably part the display. I know for Sean. That doesn't help if you're looking for a projector but if you are looking at LCD and led displays ratings dot com is a great place to look for HD. Our performance of those sets and our next emails from John says it's a correction for you the new security feature that's being implemented for home kit not restrict your remote access of your home kit devices if you read that again about the most restrictive mode being limited to your apple devices. It's their gateway if you have a home pod that's the gateway to the Internet if you have an apple TV that can be the gateway or have an ipad. That can be the gateway. What's allowing you to do is restricted from other web access? A says a home kit would be useless for most of us if we had to be home to control our devices unfortunately some non home devices open themselves up to other web communication or Internet communication. So essentially you're web kit becomes your web gateway for those particular devices. They can still get out to the Internet but it has to kind of go through that web kit channel so to speak. I is what he's saying. Yeah I kinda misunderstood that one. I Read that article last week. All right. Oh twenty twelve tweet. Tv's from wheel in upstate. New York says hey guys longtime listener and Longtime Petri Patron says just listened to episode nine. Thirty six where you guys were talking about. Black Friday deals on televisions and twenty twelve and are asked if anybody is still using one and would they write in and he says the fifty inch plasma that sears was selling for three hundred dollars in two thousand twelve man. Can you imagine that three hundred dollars for twenty twelve plasma? He says I believe this was the same one that the same one I bought back in Black Friday and twenty eleven. It was fifty inch It was a fifty inch. Panasonic Viera Plasma and I believe it was an entry level s fifty model and yes. I'm still using it today in my master bedroom connected to a TV a T. Bolt for the last nine years. It's been absolutely perfect. It doesn't get used much anymore. Probably only three to five hours a week. But it's still very good picture and I'm very happy I bought at some nine years ago. Keep up the great work. Your podcast is by far my favorite in the first one that I listened to each week when I download the latest podcasts. On my list and thanks for that email will Brayden you no longer have any plasmas right. I know you had the one. They're all gone. I'm assuming yeah all plasmas have moved on Yes. I gave mine to my brother when I bought this four K. TV. A few years ago and he was moving in him and his son. Were moving. The last Ma and my My nephew he slipped and dropped the plasma and everything shattered. He was so upset but I was even more upset. All right and let's see our next meal is from Robert who is a smart home technology specialists. And he's got some feedback on episode nine thirty where we talked about. At and T. TV and he says working with a broad cross section of consumers from retired professional couples to seniors in assisted living or just normal nontechnical people that grew up with a TV just being a TV. What we take for granted still isn't as mainstream as one might think there are a lot of consumers that do not have an apple. Tv Roku or a fire TV while other people you might think have upgraded their TV's have not upgraded their TV's so they don't have a quote Unquote Smart TV either. Although personally I don't like the pricing in contrast issues with the new. At and T. set top box. I can totally see the benefit for some consumers of having a simple all in one. Tv Box for watching TV and streaming content. The consumer only asked to deal with one company. At and T. For both the APP and the service including the remote control for. At and T. Getting rid of physical installation and sending technicians to the home to troubleshoot the coaxial cable amplifiers repeaters splitters and assorted hardware and simply ship out there streaming box directly to the consumer will actually increase their support and customer experience while dramatically lowering their operating logistics expenses conceptually to us geeks and techies running. Apps on a general purpose or flexible device like an apple. Tv roku or an android box or a computer is intellectually more appealing and liberating but the practical support issues of dealing with all the mismatches between firmware and software upgrades and all the edge conditions. Where things may almost were but not completely isn't the best consumer experience. Imagine if you had to reboot your toaster on a weekly basis or can't use the BAGEL setting ever since the new software update broke that feature. He says so. I'm not surprised that in the last year or so I've seen a lot. More regular consumer clients that are using. Smart. Tv's and say they're good enough they don't WanNa buy an TV or roku boxes to do so because in their view it's already built in for free in the TV THE AT and T. Boxes aimed at these mass market consumers. That WanNa simple plug and play experience for watching TV as long as cord. Cutting is still confusing inexpensive when it comes to local channels in sports the. At and T. Box provides a simple solution to otherwise struggling multiple services or juggling multiple services my fault subscriptions to multiple APPS and even over the ear antennas for mere mortals and non geeks. And then again. That's from Robert. Robert thank you for that email and yeah I mean I totally get the argument but I think and this is me Brayden kind of going off on my opinion on it. You still have all those same issues with an. At and T. Android box where you have to make sure that all of the APP center on it 'cause. At and T. Isn't going to provide their own version of a Netflix eappen. All those things so they're going to have net flicks and they're going to have Hulu and Voodoo and and all the other APPs on there so you're still going to have the mismatches and the things that almost work the same way you would with an apple. Tv roku probably even worse because from my experience doing those things on android boxes a little bit more of the Wild West than it is on something. That's a bit more locked down like an apple. Tv or road. Who I think the difference. Brayden is that they are going to control it. You as the consumer are not gonNA downloaded so they'll push out the updates. They'll push out delay the NETFLIX that works. So if there's a Mitch mismatch it's on them to deal with it because they're the ones who created it right so they've uploaded a new Os if you will. But in their quality control department they should verify versus like Netflix and all the other APPs that are on the box so I don't think it's going to be as much of an issue. Well that is a huge expense for. At and T. unless they decide okay. We're only going to support like a handful of the APPs that are available because there's thousands tens of thousands of apps that consumers currently on those shoes I know brain but I don't think they're going to allow consumers a download APPs. That's my point. I think it's a completely closed system. It's it's It's just think of it like your cable. Box THE DIFFERENCES. It's got android running on air and you yourself are not going to do the downloads. At and T. Is going to push the software to their boxes. Just the way they do with cable boxes. Okay so sorta like those old slide. Smart Blu Ray player but you had a selection of fifteen apps that you could use on the BLU ray player but you couldn't get to like any apps that you wanted exactly. It is literally the same as their direct TV or their universe or your comcast. I it just think of it like that. The difference is instead of coming over the cable. You know like a proper cable. Tv SERVICE IS GONNA COME OVER IP TV. And that's how they're going to get the continent to the box. My thinking was that there are just so many but I think they need to do this to start weaning people off of the other services in probably this is where they're gonna go in the future. Flopping are you flopped flipping right. No no no no no no I still I'm not gonNA ever do this. But Robert pointed out and so did a couple of other listeners. That there are a group of people who just don't want to deal with Getting apple. Tv Roku or whatever and downloading APPs my mom being one of them she just wants the TV And Regular Channel Service. My guess is this one. I I don't know this fact but my guess is you would even put in Channel. Two thirty two to four. You know have traditional channel numbers instead of using a remote to scroll through things I think. So it's meant for people like my mom who do not want to deal with APPS and eventually many years from now. I think they're gonNA phase out the direct TV so that's why they're doing this. I still think it's one of those situations where if it's GonNa take him ten years to get that in ten years. Most of these people might be used to using APPS anyway and if it's essentially the same thing as a cable box then why would anybody use this thing instead of just keeping their cable box that they've got I mean what's the appeal to it? I know it's over the Internet. Which probably makes it actually. Unfortunately you know when everyone's using your local cable network and everyone comes home at the same time and they're all streaming at the same time quality goes down your speeds go down so other than the fact that you now have to contend with the fact that you know you might get pixellated Video you're watching and stuff that you didn't get before when you're on cable what's the benefit to it over. Just keeping your cable that benefit to the user is not much the benefit is to eighteen. T. because they don't have to send an expert out they'll tell you they'll be able to tell you connected and if it's if you've got a WIFI connection they'll say here go to this page and hook up your Wifi or if you've got an actual ethernet connection just plugging you're either net and that's all they'll have to do. That's the benefit and Because otherwise it got to have somebody come out there and turn it on so if you've already got Internet so there's a benefit for. At and T. But the consumer essentially often one cable box for another cable box. That's one hundred percent true. That's that's where I was doesn't make sense to me. What's the point in In your camp on that the benefit is for them now if they were just say you know what we've got two years we're going to phase out direct TV so if you've got direct TV You you're GONNA have to get this box. That kind of makes sense to me too. They're they're saying that we're not going to support the satellites anymore The satellites either going out of orbit. Whatever that happens satellites ran out of fuel? Whatever it is so let's fast forward to. That's where we are and this is their approach that over the next year the are going to phase this box that makes sense to me but so early that I I. I don't understand the benefit. Are you going to be able to get Sunday ticket on this box? I didn't see explicitly that you can but I think that's probably because there's a contract that says You can't stream it. And even though this is going to be their box of the future it is still streaming and I think the networks and content providers just have to get over streaming versus Over the air versus cable. It's the same thing The same net result. So you know. Let's free up Sunday ticket to everybody because I could see that as a huge benefit to the consumer of being able to get Sunday ticket on a box where you don't have to have someone come out and install a satellite on your roof and run all the whatever cabling in boxes and stuff. You need to get it to work if they can just ship. You one that you get on your Wifi or plug into an Ethernet connection and now you have Sunday ticket. If you know something that you wanted to pay for. I can see that making a lot of sense but in a very easy way for someone to switch over to an eighteen t product without having to do all the direct TV set up and that's a whole nother subject. I think NFL. Once his contract expires they should just sell. Sunday ticket the way MLB in basketball and everything else is done on as an APP. And if you want to buy it you buy it and you have it anywhere. You go simple as that. Make a lot more money if you ask me okay. Last email longtime listener chuck in thousand oaks. Says I've got my video seventy TV connected to my Denton. Apr X Twenty Three Hundred W receiver. When I turn on the TV it sends a signal to turn on the receiver. Also the volume mute controls are controlled by the TV turn the volume up on the TV and it does so on the receiver. I actually see both volume control bars overlaid on top of TV at once. Yeah that's that Control over Hdmi I use that on my projector to actually now works early on. There was all kinds of issues but now it it works great call control CDC Anyway he says however lately Half the time when I turn on the TV it does not turn on the receiver. I then must manually turn on the receiver using the dennen remote control when this happens. They are no longer linked together. I can only control the volume on the receiver via the receivers remote control so to try to fix this problem. I turn turn off the TV and the receiver and start all over and sometimes this fixes it. Sometimes it takes. Several Thai tries sometimes give up and control them separately. What do you think happened? Why do you think this happens intermittently? I can understand if it stopped completely. But the intermittent part I don't get nothing has changed recently to cause this the TV is the same the receivers the same hd. My cable is the same. You think if I did a factory reset on the TV or the receiver both would solve the issue. Thanks for your help so I reached back out to chuck and ask them. Did any of the units in the sequence in the Series. Have A firmware update. Because that could have caused it. Maybe they broke something and he said No. That was the only thought I had so anyone else have any ideas. I'm putting this out there to you. Britain and the and our listeners. If they've got any ideas yeah I mean it happens because there's a handshake between the two devices and if for some reason that handshake can't go through then they will just decide okay? I can't control you and it'll move on. That's why you know even when you turn the receiver on manually afterwards. They haven't done that handshake. They're not the volume control. Doesn't Work My. I thought like you are was one of them. Got A firmware update. That changed timing in that handshake. Did something to interfere with the handshake. And maybe a firmware update was applied. That wasn't manually. Applied was somehow automatically applied to one of them by the manufacturer in the background So in that case if it was like Some sort of update that was applied in the background. A factory reset may work. It may get you back to the original factory firmware. But I do a little googling. I and do saving figure out where to find the versions of your different products in their menus before you do that. Because it's possible that that won't fix it at all Ya Se his. Tv is disconnected from the Internet. So that there's no way the T. V. could've gotten it so then it just maybe the other devices in there and I doubt the. Hdmi cable came but You know you can check that some sort of grounding issue that just popped up recently in his power. I don't know I'm kind of throwing it out there for anybody. Who might be able to help all right so jumping over doing a little bit of news. Sonos has been under fire lately for the way it handled a few decisions around its oldest products last fall the company introduced a trade up program. If you own one of Sony's of Sony Sonos oldest products you could send it to the company and get a third and get thirty percent off of any new gear however to get the discount you had to put your old products into quote unquote recycle mode setting that would permanently make them unable to connect to a network or work with other Sonos gear so essentially brick mode. Today the company is reversing course. A Sony spokesman confirmed that the trader program will continue but recycle mode is no more if you WANNA get thirty percent discount. You need to prove you. Own One of the eligible legacy products by validating serial number once. That's done you can apply the discount. Anything Sonos is currently selling its online store and the trade up name isn't exactly accurate anymore because you can continue to use that legacy hardware as long as you want so no says you can give it to Fran keep it for yourself sell it. Recycle it send it to them doesn't matter unfortunately if you've already set some products to recycle mode you can't reverse it but they did say customers in that situation should reach out to customer service to see what can be done And I totally get both sides of it like hey if you're trading up quote unquote. You don't have to ship it into us to pay the shipping costs. But you're gonNA break it because you're essentially trading it out and get something new but at the same time if you've already got it and what's the point of breaking a you know so the second mode that they're in now of saying hey we'll give you thirty percent because you're buying more stuff from us you know is is a perfect thing. 'cause that's driving more sales to to their website and then you can still keep it or give it to a friend or give it to a kid or whatever I think it's cool a cool program but if you already briefed you may be permanently bricked. Yeah and I do not understand why that was a requirement. Anyway it just seems silly Is it because like you said if you were to give it to a friend? You're introducing them to Sonos. Maybe they're going to buy more product having the thing. Just go dead that nobody can use. It is pointless to me. Yeah if you move it to like a room where you didn't have a Sonos before like you put it in the garage and you didn't have one there before. Eventually these old products are going to stop working right. 'cause they're not still supporting them their legacy products eventually. They're they're going to you know not work or not. Have the features that you want? And you're still gonNA want Sonos in that zone. So you're going to upgrade that device at that point and you're GONNA pay full price for the upgrade yard. Used your thirty percent off so all around. It makes more sense when you think through kind of projecting into the future to say yeah. We'll let you we'll give you thirty percent off because you own one of our legacy devices but you don't have to break it exactly all right so next email. A sneak peek of a product page from an upcoming ring video doorbell three show some upgrades over the ring video doorbell. To which includes a Pre roll feature for the doorbells plus model that captures four seconds black and white video before motion alert goes off. The product page described it as first to market feature for a battery powered Doorbell. The basic design of the video three dozen appear to change much from its predecessor but the new models face plate will be face. Plate will be easier to remove. It will have a near motion sensor to reduce false motion alerts and we'll have a two point four and five Gigahertz Wifi. Currently only two point four is available and it's not clear when the doorbell will be available and last new story for today. Google reportedly will turn to android TV to power. The next iteration of its chrome cast ultra device. Odongo that's expected to come with an external remote android. Tv's inclusion would allow users to incorporate Google assistant as their search engine and more easily cast content to TV sets equipped with android TV. And I think this is a good sign for those who like Android TV or when you use android TV based boxes because like I said before it's always been sort of a wild west But if Google's building it into the chrome cast maybe it'll get a little bit more love and attention and kind of get pulled into the same conversation as Apple. Tv roku fire TV. All righty so We've been doing this for a while now. Now that we're into new decade we're going back periodically and reviewing a year That we had before so today. We're going to review twenty thirteen and as typical. We start out with our predictions for that year. So we'll go through my predictions and Brayden. You can go through yours. I one I had was social. Media will determine whether a show stays on the air and I don't think that data's one hundred percent true but they are using social media in some of the good numbers for show audience size. Sorry sorry I was just GonNa go through mine but we can go back and forth no problem you and do all yours far away. Mandalay back and forth all right my first one was just a simple one just audio smother plasma so I was waving goodbye to plasma and I don't know if it actually bailed in two thousand thirteen officially but not soon thereafter not long thereafter deficit. Like totally said that wrong but I think I reply. I replace it with the correct version. Who knows someone could send me a correction and I said product placement will be big and that was in response to people fast forwarding through television programs on their DVR's and so another way that these menu the content creators. We're going to make back. Some of the money was with plot product placement and there was some shows like The Mindy Project used product placement a lot in a lot of other ones do Even believe it or not news uses product placement because I've seen some stories on some of the podcast that I listen to where they break down a new segment and they say this is nothing more than just product placement. They treat it as a news story. But it's nothing but nothing more than product placement every year you get this at. Walmart has Some guy comes out and Pays the layaway for a bunch of people. They treat that as news and that is kind of like Walmart It could be the peop- Walmart themselves doing it to get the news. And then they team up with the news media to Show that story. So there's these kinds of things are going on but anyway so that was my thinking. I think it's bigger but I wouldn't necessarily say it's big There were some shows where it was ridiculously beginning was chuck if I remember right the Toyotas and they would stop in the middle of the show and talk about the features of their Toyota. Minivan a lot of them would do that. Yeah yeah all right. My next prediction was all by that for three hundred dollars. The average selling price for a forty two inch ten eighty P L C. Tv will be three hundred by the end of the year. Three hundred bucks by the end of the year down from four eighty in two thousand twelve and I have no idea if that came true or not but I don't think you can buy a forty two inch ten eighty P LCD TV anymore. They're all like a four K now so probably hit three hundred at some point all right and then I said apple will enter the home automation market and they actually did but not in twenty thirteen. The first home kid Products were available in September of twenty fourteen. So I miss out by about a little more than a year and a half and my next prediction was. Let's be more than friends as the economy continues to struggle and the price of electronics continues to plummet twenty thirteen. We'll see at least one maybe a few large mergers or acquisitions in the consumer Electronics Home Theater Industry and I can't think back to a single large merger acquisition. We've seen some sort of in the home automation with ring. And some of those smaller devices being gobbled up by the bigger companies That was obviously more recently than two thousand thirteen But I don't remember any big ones huge changes in the CBS show of companies. Not showing up anymore so big changes in the market but not the mergers and acquisitions aright and then I said we'll see a true smart TV I don't know if that happened in two thousand thirteen but we definitely have true smart. Tv's now our next one stream it to me this year will see new release available via streaming in an all you can eat subscription package. Still haven't seen that happen so didn't have it in two thousand thirteen still hasn't happened in two thousand twenty. All right and then I have. Movie Studios will eliminate drm for from their content and That sadly has not happened and my last prediction was. You can take it to Grandma's house in twenty thirteen. Someone will show the prototype for a truly portable tablet computer and I think that was the Surface came out in twenty twelve. I don't know I don't even remember what I was talking about with is truly portable computer. The IPAD PRO didn't come out for a few years after twenty thirteen. I can't remember what I was thinking at the time. It feels like this. The surface was already out but maybe it was just the weird version of it. That didn't have like a desktop and stuff I don't know man. I probably got this one wrong. Odds are I gotta go all right. Then we'll go through we put. Cas twenty thirteen wrap up. I'M NOT GONNA go through. This whole thing is kind of long. I just wanted to point out a couple things brayden. Maybe you might want to point out something to we had at sharp we saw the world's largest led TV. And I believe they were showing an eighty five inch eight K. TV. This was in two thousand thirteen and we were pretty impressed by that and there was a they were not showing any the elite. Tv's and if you remember. Sharp bought that name elite from pioneer. I believe so. We didn't see any back then. There were several. Oh lead. Tv's all the way back then. I think it took still a couple more years for them to make consumers but lg had an Ol- ed Panasonic had the world's first or the world's largest sorry Ford Ko lead and then Samsung had some leads. Sony had Samoa leads So even companies that haven't come out with Oleg. Tv's were showing lead. Tv's back then in the last thing we'll talk about here There was a thing Brayden and I would always go check out and it was a glasses. Free Three D and a company called steam. Tv networks would always show it in and they would have like little footprints on the on the carpet and you were supposed to stand there because that was a sweet spot and it was kind of cool because it did really look like three but you moved a little to the left or right in the three D. effect one away. That was a technology that never went anywhere and my guess is partly because three d just kind of disappeared. Yeah being remembered every year we went it. Seemed like he got a little bit better. But it's still. There was such a big gap between a little bit better. And what was actually you know? Really usable in a home. Where if you had one spot on your couch where you had to sit in order to see three D if you sat anywhere else. Everybody just saw blurry screen. Didn't seem like it was going to be very viable but it was kind of cool each year that we would go and check it out. It's like oh it's getting better. It's getting better. It's required. Got There all right and then in two thousand thirteen the HDMI one point. Four a was available to us and that was in July of twenty thirteen and later on in September the two point Oh. Hda PLANO was announced but some of the things that the HD one point four had was HDMI Ethernet channel. And that was it's not like arc. That was so that you could connect all your devices via Ethernet. And then if one of those devices had ethernet jacks it could end up being like hub or a router or switch. I never saw anything make use of that. Do you recall anything that that made us that. Yeah I thought it was a good idea specs. Yeah I mean I would assume that all the specs beyond then still have it and I still haven't seen really anyway talking about hd my ethernet because a cool thing there is if you would connect your Even if it didn't have the The hub what you could do is connect your Ethernet to say your receiver and then if you connected your your TV and all your satellite boxes and whatever else to year receiver they would all have ethernet connection and I thought that was a great idea that I don't know that it went anywhere They also added support for additional colors. HDA micro connector. Came out back then and then there was also the HDMI connection system were new cables and connectors for automotive video. Systems were designed to meet the unique demands for the motoring environment while delivering true aged equality. I don't know that anything happened there as well but That was at the time pretty cool stuff and back in the day the direct TV. Genie was a big deal back in twenty thirteen. And it said we said if you're have if you're a DIRECTTV subscriber. The genie is a great upgrade and so the genie was Essentially the the directive version of the dish hopper right Yeah Yeah But now Every device essentially as a genie right. Yeah so we were excited about that. In fact I even went in was gonna get a genie and when the guy came to the house he talked me out of it. He said don't get any genie's you can just use all your set top boxes as Jeannie if you will because they would all communicate with each other and I said Oh sounds good to me and then now with direct TV now or ATV. Now I can watch anything anywhere doesn't even matter so yeah all right and then this was. Kinda back in twenty thirteen. We were already thinking about this projector versus a large format TV. So here's what we said in our conclusion. Our analysis kind of like a goldilocks and the three bears are largest. Tv is perfect on size but too expensive. Our smallest projector is perfect on price. But too small. So gotTA laugh when we're calling a seventy inch. Tv too small. But let's just go with that Wa- our just right projector. The eighty inch sharp gets you immersed in the action without breaking the bank requiring a complicated installation final. Thought if you want to wait until Christmas. There's a ninety inch that will be available at a half price so even back in two thousand thirteen Brayden we were talking about wanting to use the large format. Tv As a projector replacement and we never did know I may still but I gotta get out of this seven year analysis paralysis for me. I did go I so I did have a projector than I bought a seventy inch. Tv which was a little bit smaller than what we were talking about here and we no longer felt a desire to go upstairs and watch on the big screen because seventy inches was actually pretty good in a family room. And now I have the The ultra short throw which works great and daytime and I only use that for like sporting events During the day for the most part because even with the ease of use HDR and the beautiful color and everything. We Still Watch downstairs. Because it's close to the kitchen and I think that's why if you were to get something like that in your family room That would be the ideal situation. Yeah Yeah I agree I got. I just got to do something right. Something's better than nothing. So all we're back in twenty thirteen areo if you remember them they were big deal was a service that allowed you to watch and record. Live television from anywhere within your home coverage area via an Internet connected device. A low caste is making a run at doing the same thing thing but areo essentially got sued out of business back in the day. They were the ones that had these arrays of you know thousands of antennas and then you essentially would rent an antenna from them and then they would take that over the air and converted the digital and streaming out to you so essentially. What they were saying is you're using an intended to get over the air. Were streaming it to you. But because they were quote unquote retransmitting that content over the Internet. They got shut down by the broadcasters And low caste is trying to do it now but the broadcasters are trying to shut them down as well all right next up I had new. Tv shows for twenty thirteen. But there's a lot of them. Why don't we just skip that and If anyone's really interested I can send them a link to this Let's go to With our Black Friday preview for twenty thirteen and what we do there is just Summarize what the best deals were in two thousand thirteen so in the thirty two inch price range. Walmart had various brands seven twenty. Ptv's for ninety eight dollars and you know what they haven't really got much lower. I think ninety eight dollars is the minimum it you can get a TV packaged manufactured package shipped and sold. I can't see it going any cheaper other than buy one and get a thirty two inch for free that we talked about last week. Yeah and then that. How do you WanNa do this when you want to take him out? Go ahead doesn't it doesn't matter to me. I mean I think it's the same content either way you've got a more dulcet voice. The tones people like to listen to you speedy here. I'll take the next category and then we can go from there so the next next one on the list was the thirty seven to thirty nine inch. Lcd TV's best. Buy had an insignia thirty nine eighty p one hundred sixty nine bucks and then sears. Had A Saiki. Thirty nine inch four K. Which back in two thousand thirteen was a big deal but also a big price at four hundred ninety nine dollars for a thirty nine inch four K. in where is Saiki today Then there was the forty two forty two inch target had the element forty inch ten eighty P TV for one hundred seventy eight dollars and then target sweeping the list and forty six to fifty two category also had an element fifty inch ten eighty. P for only two hundred and twenty nine bucks. Do you think element? Tv's are available at target right now. I need to check because a lot of times these companies that only show up during Christmas time Some I next time I go to target. I'M GONNA go see if there is an element. Tv there or if they're just kind of like a black Friday brand. I wonder if there was a target house. Brand isn't target. Usually the only one that has element it could be could be I. I don't I used to just go to the TV section and just look at. What was there? I just haven't done that in years all right. And then the only plasma TV that was available was sears selling a fifty one inch Samsung seven. Twenty P for four hundred twenty nine ninety nine and then the last category on the list was the big boys the sixty to eighty inch. L. Kmart had a westinghouse sixty inch one hundred twenty hertz. Ten Eighty P LCD for only five hundred and eighty eight dollars and Walmart had a video seventy inch ten eighty P smart led HDTV for a thousand bucks. Ninety eight all right. Then I'll I'll do this real quick Brayden the receiver buying guide for twenty thirteen. We had two receivers at were over a thousand dollars and it was the first one was Marantz. S are seven zero zero eight nine point two channel ten eighty P Four K ultra hd pass through and that was two thousand dollars and we also had on the list of Sony S. T. R. Dash. Da Fifty eight hundred es also nine point two four K. VR RECEIVER WITH AUTOMATION FOR TWENTY. One Hundred Bucks so today. A comparable What comparable receiver will cost you? There is a Marantz for K. U. HD. Av Receiver. Its model numbers SA are sixty fourteen. It's nine point two channels. It has all the new format because back in two thousand thirteen. There wasn't an atmosphere. It even has amax enhanced it has Amazon a lady online streaming home automation essentially everything. The two thousand thirteen model had and more for a thousand dollars less. It's GonNa cost you fifteen hundred dollars but if you go the Sony route. They have the S. T. R. Z. A. Five thousand. Es It is a nine point two channel AV receiver similar to the one above. And it's twenty two hundred dollars there. You get everything that the two thousand thirteen model had and more of an update for audio formats. Airplay that kind of thing but it's GonNa cost you thousand one hundred dollars more. So marantz is where you WanNa go if you WANNA get some savings from twenty thirteen. Sony is just charging the same amount for basically a little bit. Better equipment. Yeah and then. The last thing we'll talk about from twenty thirteen was we went through our HDTV buying guide and gave you a bunch of TV's that we thought were good. Tv's two by two thousand thirteen and then at the end of that list. We always do our ultimate Christmas present and that is the almost like You know money is no object. You go out and buy yourself the best. Tv You can and put it under the tree. If it'll fit we had two on the list for two thousand thirteen. Both of them were ten eighty P. TV's one was the sharp Elsie Eighty L. E. Seven fifty seven eighty inch awkward squad on ten. Eighty P smart led three HDTV loss of acronyms. There that was thirty. Six hundred and eighty eight dollar super expensive in today's market And was Quash Ron R. O. Was that thing where they added like the Yellow Pixel to it. So they had four. Rgb Aniello made a whole bunch of colors or whatever you really didn't and the other TV that we had on the list was the L G fifty five e eight ninety eight hundred cinema. Three D ten. Eighty P curved. Oh led with was a smart tv so this was a ten. Adp back in the day nine grand so I think we had to go with curve because everybody like doing the curve stuff and Oleg was curved And Ole Ed. At the time we'd seen a bunch of CAS was just like light years ahead of all the other tack and it looked so much better But you were paying a lot of money for those lead. Tv's back in the day. Nine grand For this fifty five incher. Yeah and it was curved. What were we thinking? But because I think at that point the fact that it was really what won us over? Yeah and then. There was one that we left off the list. It was an eighty five inch four K. Tv Samsung had an eighty five inch four K. For forty thousand dollars by an eighty five inch four K. TV. Now for like fifteen hundred bucks. Amazing isn't it so all right? Let's move on here. There was a poll over at ABS. Forum du Stream Movies live TV or shows and The we'll go through the categories and tell you what the percentage is so one person or the first thing is Ice Stream. That was thirteen percent. Yeah that actually came in at number four on the list of the like. The highest amount of people responded to that. And then the next one said. I'm a true cord cutter discs for movies and shows plus over the Air TV so no paid subscriptions to anything at all. That was way down at four point. One eight percents. Very few true cord cutters. You know it's funny. I think back in the day that number would have been higher but because now of these over the top TV services people are less apt to cut cord and just go with a low cost Ip TV. Service are right and this is I prefer discs for movies and Stream. Everything else That's interesting that's at twenty. Two point six nine percents of those are your movie aficionados and the movies will be at their highest quality assuming that those disks are you hd disc or at least blu. Ray Yeah and that was actually the number two highest lea- responded but this is also a BS forum where a lot of people consider themselves to be kind of like a video files or whatever or maybe they felt a little bit ashamed if they didn't say half the next category on their is streaming plus over the air live. Tv is all I need and that was almost nobody down at three point. Five eight percent then I stream movies and shows US cable over the air Satellite for US cable. Ot A and satellite for live TV. That was at thirteen point. Seven three percent. And what was that number five or number three and the next one is the number one and it says I prefer discs for movies streaming for shows and cable over the air or satellite for live. Tv The number one answer on the list at twenty eight point nine six almost thirty percent of the respondents chose that one so they're getting that's people that watch movies on disk. They stream their shows and then they still have cable or satellite for live TV. And then I get everything for my cable. Satellite provider including on demand TV services for movies shows and live TV and that was one of the lowest. I think that might have been the lowest at one point. Four nine percent and this next one is just a weird category. And I'm surprised that got as many responses it did but it just says I have a collide escape so I- download movies. I also stream and or have cable satellite over the TV. So this is anybody that had a kaleidoscope so they download their movies and it actually got three point five eight percent so you know as same as people who have streaming plus over the air I I was surprised that that many people had to collide escape there. You go in the last one actually got zero percent. It said what is all this. I spend my time gaming and yes nobody. Ats Forum spends all their time gaming They'd be at gaming of forums. I guess all right Let us know where you find yourself in there Pretty much I am streaming for everything except certain movies. I will watch on the disk on my projector but only the first time and But I'm also finding. I'm having a hard time now where I feel the the hassle of buying the disk and watching it like Is that much better than what I get streaming because I've seen some really good streaming stuff and I know I know it's better with The disc but it's kind of like if you can have a pizza dead has like everything on there and you really love it. But let's say you can have the same pizza and maybe one topping is missing or even to toppings. It's still good so that's kind of where I'm at. I'm at the Supreme Pizza with maybe two toppy toppings missing. That's what I think about streaming nice. I like that analogy. I'm definitely an ice cream. Everything I do. They only the only way any contact gets into the house anymore is via the Internet. Yeah exactly okay. All right then the last thing we want to talk about here is there was an article that said cord cutters. Don't care about live. Tv and are willing to watch ads according to Nielsen. I thought that was bogus. I I do care about why A live TV. And I'm not willing to watch ads but sometimes I'm forced to and that's very rare when that's the situation so They had two tables on here. We have links to all these articles but two tables that I wanted to pull out here. One is the importance of video streaming attributes. So we're going to go through these. In the highest to lowest order so cost is the most export Important to streaming attract attributes an eighty four percent of. The people said costs was most important. Where do you fall on that breeding? Where do I fall as far as exactly exactly? Is it important or it is important. But it's not the most important I wouldn't put it at the top of my list and the second one on. The list is ease of use as eighty-one percent and that to me is also important in maybe more important in my opinion than costs. Because I've had some some streaming services that I canceled Hulu because I couldn't figure out how to watch the content without so many more ads and the ease of use was an issue. I didn't Hula. Cancel who live So ease of use. I think to me is more important than cost. I want a product that I enjoy using a you know. It's funny you mention that I tried. Hulu live and I gave up on it because I thought they interface was terrible and same thing. Ease of use their basically killed it for me Right variety availability of content and that is important But for me to get that variety and availability. I have like five different services that I subscribe to yet but I think all the content providers know that that's really high one was seventy nine percent. That's why everybody's investing in putting their own content out the next one on the list at seventy seven percent was streaming or playback quality which I think is important but I don't know where I'd put it on the list because I just kind of take it as a almost like A. GimMe that they all essentially are the same. I don't know maybe there are people sitting down and comparing the livestream quality of all the different live streaming services. But I just take it as as take it for granted that they're all basically the same but It's interesting that That is not the number one cost is more important so people are willing to give up a little bit of quality for cost for me. It's not the cost. It's the it's the convenience and I think convenience is on here somewhere Speed Menu selection loading content. Yeah I agree fortunately for me because I have very high speed Internet it looks pretty fast. The next one is accessibility or search for desired content. Seventy one percent and okay and then there is accessibility across devices to me. That's important too because we watch on multiple devices. Yeah and then the next one which I think would be huge for me at fifty. Six percent was resolution available. Full K Four K ULTRA HD HD. Whatever I'm you know when I rent movies I rent him on Voodoo because I want to get the highest. That's where I do believe the Voodoo has for rent movies the highest quality available. It's expensive though and so when I read the The title of this article this kind of what the next two topics the next two attributes are going to talk to that the streaming ads skipping ads feature was only fifty two percent to me. That's very important. I'm surprised that it's as low as it is And for me a lot of the services I have I just pay for the no ads. I don't even have to skip. Yeah and so. That was fifty two percent barely over half on the skipping ads feature and then just below that forty eight percent so under half is the AD free feature the AD. Free option That to me might be the top of the list to the ability to have an ad. Free version Because I I hate the ADS in. I'm willing to pay a couple extra bucks a month to not have ads okay. So let's see content available for downloading. Offline that is A-plus I can see why is low as it is but I do enjoy that because when I go on a trip or something I love loading up on content because I don't know what's going to be on the airline. Ifc system and I can always make sure I have something to watch simply by downloading it and the next one is menu recommendations. I have no idea what that means but it was only thirty. Eight percent of people but thirty eight percent of people are really interested in menu recommendations and last one is content available live. That's important to me for sporting events and news so I do want I do want content live and if you were to tell me that You these services. Do not have a live option. I don't think I would go for it so the at and T. TV now gives me live content which is very important and then I supplement that by buying the CBS and Hulu and having Netflix and Amazon prime so well so that was the bottom one on the list at thirty seven percent. So that's what led them to this title. That says cord cutters. Don't care about live TV. But I questioned the the phrasing or the the wording of this where they say content available. And if you're in your mind saying how important is content available live to me for net flicks now. I don't care if it's live or not like I don't care if I have to tune in on Tuesday night at nine o'clock to watch Netflix show. That doesn't matter to me whatsoever. But if it's live content that I need to watch live like a sporting event or like a debate or an award show or whatever then it kind of has to be live. So do I care if Netflix content or Amazon's content is available quote unquote live? No I care at all. I mean that's at the bottom of my list but for a a to the content that needs to be live in order to be consumed. Live it if that's what I'm getting. That streaming service for you know if that's why. I Have Youtube. Tv or sling TV or whatever. Then that's GonNa jump up all the way to the top of the list because that's why I have that streaming service so I think this whole kind of wording and phrasing of this is a little bit funky and then the last thing we'll go through here is the reasons for subscribing to additional paid video streaming services and the first one is to expand the content that I have available forty-seven percent people said that I totally agree with that. Yeah that's a no brainer. And then to watch programs I used to watch on. Tv and can't find anywhere else. Thirty seven percent so I was like watching the office stuff like that totally. Get that too then to watch a particular program that I've heard about again. A lot of times listeners will say oh you need to check out this show so it's great to be able to go back and watch seasons of a show. That's no longer on the air so I'm totally down with that. I'm I'm jiving with this a lot better. Yeah for sure. I mean that's what I use. Hulu for for the most part To access original content exclusive to streaming platforms thirty five percent and there are a lot of people that are really really into some of the series and stuff that are on the different platforms. Stranger things in that so totally get that and to replace other more expensive TV services Minds more do enhanced but okay replace And then the next one is to access content with limited or no commercials as twenty eight percent and that would be way up on the list for me exactly and then to control playback of content Like play pause whatever. Okay that's great when you are watching. Live if you've got a dvr you can kind of do that now. But I I get that and then the the next one. Twenty one percent is flexibility of cancellation policy. I love it. I mean. It's not a huge thing. I guess it is a huge thing to me. I wouldn't sign up with something if it was like a Netflix. That required me to sign up for a year or anything so yeah. I guess that would be a huge win for me as well. Now I have signed up for your like Disney plus. I just paid for a year because it was a great deal but Yeah I can If they were to say Netflix. If you lock in now well maybe give you a good deal on it right. Lock in now. You can save five bucks a month. You do the math at sixty dollars. It might be worth it. But that's because you know you're going to like Netflix. And in my case I knew that my kids were gonNA like Disney plus a brand new service from scratch. I don't know that I would do that. And then to enjoy Allah card options. Brayton's been preaching this since almost day. One of the PODCAST. Yeah I wish it was more all cart to be honest with you because there's a lot of stuff on on the streaming networks like Netflix and others that I don't watch and I don't care about to be able to you know Kinda. Hone down my netflix subscription. A bit the next one is to access live content At nineteen percent and this again the same thing as the last one. I. It's just if that's what you have that service for then. Obviously that's what you have that service but that's not what I have half of my my streaming service is four or more than half. I only have one for live and the last one is to access content on the go for sure I do use a lot of content on the go and to me on the go even means when I'm at my mother-in-law's house I have access to my content there so I think we're living in an age where TV or media. Whatever you WANNA call it is so much better. And we have access to all this stuff but Even with that set. Sometimes there's still nothing to watch brayden yet. Do you know what I'm surprised that that access content on the go or on mobile devices was as low as it was. 'cause you know everybody and I think we've even seen a you know surveys. And other things in the past where people watch a vast majority of their stream content on portable devices so maybe they just take for granted the fact that hey all these things work on these devices so it's not a huge deal for me to get it on the go but you know I mean. I can't tell you how many times I've been sitting at the mall outside a changing room or or whatever or something event at you know in a downtime and I can just turn on Netflix show or Amazon or even stream live TV. It's huge it's awesome. I don't know why it's at the bottom of the list only eighteen percent. Yeah alrighty so that is it for today show thank you everybody for listening.

Twist and get a fifty dollars our credit towards their first job post a welcome back to this week in startups. Keep working on it. We'll get there first up purpose Kenny. Tell me what are you working on. And what's your biggest problem. Sure so thank you for having me. I we are building expedia for group airfare with a twist where we partner with airlines to opt to automate their offline group sales so before that we really get started. We you really want to explain. What group airfare is? It's a product that every airline cells. It's about five percent of their total ticket sales and most of the world's airlines sell it off line meaning that if you're a school a sports team or a tour operator you have to call multiple airlines just to get pricing. The the product is unique in the sense that it allows the user to hold large blocks of space with just a deposit that's refundable and then it allows them to split their payments and pay their final balance thirty days prior to travel and allows for free name changes so over the course of the last year we've been working on recruiting airlines to either test out are white labeled product or integrate directly into our marketplace and our issue is that now we have were pre revenue company and we have multiple airlines that want to do pilots at once so we have a really simple revenue model. We charge six dollars per ticket and a mid size airline would basically do about a million group tickets a year so do each integration is worth about six million dollars in revenue. Okay so your issue is you make a percentage of revenue and you have the the chicken and egg problem. You don't have a flywheel going crack because of the way you've chosen to price this taking six percent said of every six dollars or six dollars per ticket. Yeah Thank you for the education by the way. This is a great way to ask a question. You explain to us. What groups house was? You anticipated that my first question or anybody's would be what percentage of that is you know percentages group sales anyway. Sure it turns out it's five percent which is actually meaningful. So I was like okay. Check box that down and I was trying to figure out what the discount is or why they even do this for and you hit you headed off at the pass. It's not necessarily about the discount. It's about the features and one of the features is the name change. The other is locking in the pricing and the other is the pricing term. And you're able to cancel for free. Oh and has cancellation. Yeah like full fare tickets do. Yeah but you're locking in a lower price for a group at this fair so group airfare affairs typically more expensive more expensive and more expensive because you're blocking out those seats you're blocking out about like say fifty seats at one time so you're taking the fifteen cheapest seats and then you take those and then the price goes up. God then it goes up and then the airline gives you an average got it and then with all the benefits they put a little premium. Now I understand it even more because they do demand based pricing crack the less is available the higher the price demand based pricing. If if you're looking for a group your book fifteen tickets and then the next fifteen people to buck pay the price in the final fifteen people truly take the price so if if we were all in the traveling version of cats the Broadway show the beloved show which is not a bad idea. Hadn't everybody's doing for the next couple of months we do that. The the sixteenth person gets screwed the thirty first person who really get screwed and whoever the last five people are are if they want to be on the same flight or super scoops I get it so I think that what they're there's two things one if you're fabulously wealthy then fund the company yourself if you believe that this is a great opportunity if you're not fabulously wealthy. Try to convince somebody. Who is I give you an angel check? Who maybe isn't in the professional venture community who probably wouldn't fund this until you prove it out some more then there's a third adoption which you may not have considered which is your pricing might be the wrong pricing? Okay and I understand why you came up with the pricing airlines typically pay expedia speedy and those type of people to three dollars a ticket right about that. Yeah and so you decided to double a triple VAT thinking. Hey that'd be great but all those companies actually now make their money from hotels as you know. Twenty percent of hotels thirty percent of hotels and people stay in hotels for three or four nights so they almost book the tickets as a loss leader to get your email and then upsell you on the rental car and the hotel which they get a bigger percentage of I understanding. Yeah having sat through hundreds of travel pitches like this. You're making enterprise software correct and you're doing lead Gen and demand Gen so I would pause for a second and say what if I made a tool for the person responsible for the travel planning and sold that tool to the person on the team who has the book travel. Oh sure and you said to them. Hey if you're booking travel for fifty dollars a month you can use our software to coordinate. What are your main pain points that make them in booking software? Because they do that. Right now in excel document or a Google Doc. Running email thread consuming. There's nobody out there who made enter. WHO MADE SAS software for the people who are booking travel on a regular basis like the coach or the person who runs the team? Sure Zach. Correct that's correct and you consider it. Yeah so in full transparency Our founding team comes from a travel management company. And we did exactly that got so we already have a basically a contract contract management system for the customer and essentially what we've done is we've taken that to the airlines like Delta or Virgin Atlantic and we said we have a contract contract management system. Now we want to into we want to integrate with your back for that though that function with for the people who are the group travelers I how do you charge them. Like a travel agent with ten percent on top. Yeah so essentially. That's what roughly comes out there so all of these things where you take a piece of the action are very hard to get started if you're an outsider. In Silicon Valley has built and sold the company hard to get funded by default but SAS companies are easy to fund an easy to get the flywheel going if you build something of just rudimentary decent Capabilities so the other possibility is that you create the software four four. The agents who book group travel on their side and you make it super easy to solve three or four of their problems in other words and now they have their own archaic systems. But if you had a fresh system and there were a couple of airlines who didn't have anything southwest doesn't even have a program where they have deprecated and they don't even want to answer the phone and they just try to push people to not do it. which is probably what's happening here it's true? Is that what's happening. So yes so some of the airlines are basically trying to push you to book in groups of nine and just instant purchase so it is happening. They don't want to do this right right. They would rather you just pay full fare and they WANNA get those lights full and get there so and they know you're going to do it anyway they you. You have no choice. If you're flying team you have no choice So they they're doing this progressing Lee so maybe setting up a system where they could just manage it better on their side or bringing them groups and then charging them again a SAS is price so instead of saying I'm going to take six dollars a ticket which then I don't know they gotta get some business walk. NBA To build out a model. What if this grows? We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA lose our margin because our margins thirty dollars a ticket and we're giving these clowns four dollars and they're gonNA take ten percent of our actual prophets. That's going to be terrible if this thing works. Yeah it's bad for us. That's a bad place to be if you're billing software to say it again in the customer who has to use that software says if if I use this Solution it's bad for me. That's not good. And we exception of drugs because the value proposition is so great for fennel In heroin I like well. I know this is terrible for me but I have no choice. It's just that good kind of true It's funny because it's true so I think making software that actually solves this and then there's even stepping back and thinking. Is there another way to solve this acute the problem for teams and travelers in groups. So I would study what their problems are. And maybe think about enterprise offers a better route than a percentage of the marketplace replace. So can I share with you a little bit about the one customer that we are working with now so we have an airline that we're doing a pilot with now and essentially and they're paying hang nothing. It's an unpaid pilot. Yeah exactly so basically. We have to prove ourselves in order to get up and running the company's poor and doesn't make any money I assume don't uh-huh you're scared to charge them because you were afraid they would say no. That's exactly right. Yeah so damaged in life. Don't be scared sure. Insist like if if you're fearful earful. It's not gonNA work well. As a general strategy in life or business I think he had come out of it guns blazing and you gotTa make pay. 'CAUSE you're providing value if you get nine nose in one person gives you a three hundred thousand dollars to build this out for them because they were going to build it themselves for two million. Yeah well that would be a better option than just getting one person to say. Yes for a free pilot got it. Yeah I mean and also if they say yes to the free pilots have new skin in the game which which mail out a laugh if when that person person quits whoever your rabbi over there is like looking over you and making sure everything goes well they leave and then you're like. Is Anybody in charge of. There's no I'm not inheriting that project. No I don't believe in group. Sales gotta have some skin in the game with a company goes. Oh you know what we're we invested. A we put the first hundred of two hundred and fifty thousand dollars into this project. Even though that person laughed we need to finish. The project was already got the budget for it approved and we want to see the results got too big mistakes I wanna stay in the percentage and the other is doing UNPAID PILOTS WANNA keep hearing more about it so senior updates to updates at launch dot com. And let's get up. Let's give them a big round of applause. Some thank you. You already knows then desks. It's the world's best customer support system we will use it. We love it but what you may not know is that they having entire range of products now and they call them the Zen desk sweet and that includes integrated customer support that lets you track and prioritize.

In startups next up is lease from bloom bras else. Okay at least tell us what is bloom bras so I found a bloom bras out of frustration. I could not find a sports bra that worked for me and when I started to look at the marketplace I found out that there were so many women who are in the same boat that I was so Seventy percent of women now are decoupled above and that number continues to rise. Most of the brands stop at a D. Cup and so when I started looking at the product they said it's not really an engineering. I'm sorry a design flaw. It's an engineering challenge. So I brought him people from NASA the shipping and packaging industry a woman who does all of the coarser tree work for ballerinas opera singers Oprah etc and. I said I want to create a system. That's GonNa take the weight from the front pulled into the back be completely adjustable comfortable breathable and something that doesn't make you feel like you're wearing a suit of armor so we've been shipping shipping for about a year and a half we've got partnerships now with Rei macy's title nine in Universal Standard that continues to grow and we're building building a community that includes curvy women so again our size range is now the most body inclusive on the market twenty-two Fifty six l L. L. Yes C E F G H I J K L which we can't keep the larger size stop. You telling me that all those letters exist in bras all day more than exists in Bras. Yup Take a moment there. Let them settle it. There's like eight more sizes that you carry carry eight more sizes beyond De. Wow Yeah. I didn't know that. Let me ask you a really dumb question. Is this such thing you said that this was a booming market and it was like doc expanding market potential. So many pundits I live in Pun was not intending that one but it is an expanding market. Is that because because of obesity or because of augmentation so not augment- Augmentation such a small piece of the market so couple of things one is yes. Hormones hormones in our food. Obesity women are girls are developing earlier and then a lot of these women just have never been able to buy a proper size and then you have vanity sizing thing so somebody like. Victoria's secret that they're psychology saying if your measurements let's just say are thirty four C.. And they tell you you're thirty two D so you're GONNA be a lot more product. Okay so there is a phenomenon known as vanity sizing. Yes if you give people the Extra Cup size yes. They feel so encouraged by achieving a D. instead of a C though by more if they are below a certain range yes the kearlier women women that they don't they don't really want that. Wow I'm learning so much now well thank you and so people have been ignored. Yes hormones are kicking in augmentation is minor but people are bigger generally speaking so bras need to be bigger and more supportive. Got It and there's always room. One of the great great things about this D to see movement is that the direct to consumer movement is consumers love incremental continuous improvement. And they won't shut up about it so I have this eight sleep bed and I tell them my friends about added Tesla Owners would shut up about it and so if you actually make direct and both of those are direct to consumer products or on the web whether it's a test or the sleep an invest renewsleep but none Tesla If you make something that is that much better and consumers find out about it. They'll spread it for you so you just have to be really focused the product which it seems you are. What is your biggest challenge today? So our biggest challenges we've got two one is actually sizing. So that's specifically to that market market A lot of these women have never bought a Bra online. Or lets US define sizing sign not sizing of the cup size. We're talking about the market. No sizing of the Cup size dotted okay. So we lose so we're getting right now between one hundred thousand three hundred thousand unpaid to our website each month but no your seo but no paid and But they drop off so so we're not getting the conversion okay. Yeah but it's an extremely high bounce rate and then the second one tied directly to that is returns got it oh so people go by the Bra and return it because it's not the right size and can you reuse that Bra or no. After they do it it depends on what condition it gets. Okay these leaser very specific tactical questions which is good because I deal with tactical questions all day long literally. My entire life is talking to founder understood tactical questions sometimes we move to strategy and sometimes move up to the mission of the company but you got the mission it's pretty good and on a strategy basis seems inge pretty solid direct to consumer. But let's get tactics if people are bouncing off your site do you A. B. Test your website. And so who's in charge of that. And how many experiments did they run in the last thirty days. So that's a great question so we are just starting. Ab Test now. We tested a lot of different concepts. Remember my question. Is there somebody in the company in charge of it. Okay great and then how many tests did you do in the last thirty. We have probably I mean I would say gotta got it. We've had about eight thousand people that have in the last right. You know what I mean by. Ab Testing you have one web page. Go to four thousand. The sage goes to the other four thousand. You as you have software to do that said you know okay this season which is fine a lot of times we meet companies who have not started this part of the journey. And what you're gonNA find as CEO's of product centric CEO is that you have to take that passion you have for product and then translated into a passion in for Marketing and growth tactics and all the tool set there and every time you level yourself up with those tools. You're going to answer your own questions but as a founder. You're kind of like I'm just going to hand that off to somebody. It turns out for you. I would give yourself zero credit starting from right after we finish our conversation conversation so from now on when you look in the mirror and you wake up every day I want you to give yourself zero credit for the product you created. I want you to be disciplined about that. Because as founder you can get like like really excited like Oh you know invested in Newburgh. I'm a genius right but that's over. That was ten years ago. Let's forget about the fact that you made a great product. Start judging yourself on your ability to run a D. T. C. Company at the highest most professional level. That's why you give yourself credit for in order to do that you have to master. Ab testing of your homepage. And that means learning about why people bounce what sources they're coming from and just had yourself run AB tests you're going the need to learn how to build those pages yourself and set them up and look at the metrics and you know what it's not that hard building a world class product and being brave enough to start a company. Those two things are much harder than learn those techniques. Now you can buy it. You can have people teach you if you really want to ramp up fast find consultant for a hundred bucks an hour and have them set the first three or four tests up with you and then you take them over. That's a great way to maybe hire two of them in parallel have one person doing one set of tasks for you have have another one doing another set of tests. And that's what I like to do. I'll use these consultants from time to time to just level up my own knowledge. And that's what you're going to need to going on that journey of leveling up your knowledge as the CEO. Because I can tell you the. CEO of the companies that are working. That's what they give themselves credit for. Okay I got the product it's amazing great table stakes. That's what you're supposed to do now. All that growth stuff you gotta learn yourself. How many tests can you run? How can you changed the creative copy writing what the offer is one thing as you know? Probably I think it's the company all birds that makes quarter sizes of shoes so I'm sure you've been inspired in part by that okay so most people don't know about that anybody here ever buy a pair Aubert's who's bought all birds one in two three four great and when you bought them did you By Chauhan's did you order. Did you wind up with two different size feet or the the same size for you to have the same as did you. Did they ship you multiple shoes. You're atoms yeah. Oh it's Adams that does has it. Okay sorry Adams you're right EJECTA posted. Has Anybody ordered Adams. There's some hipster shoes anyway. What they do their their concept is they send you three versions of the shoes? So I'm nine and a half they'll send me nine and a quarter nine and a half and nine point seven five and for each foot. I try each one on and then send back the others. So that's a really interesting concept that you might want to go with send three bras or bras and send back whichever one on the first order and and then lock them in. We tried that and it. Some of them came back in pretty bad shape. That's that's the only reason just was it was a lot of being at this. Stage of the company is a lot of work managing the return. So I mean it's it could be a differentiator if returns are a big one way to deal with it. The other one is to send maybe a three. If people want to order they order their first bra and you send them or they you get their mailing address in their email and your consultation online with them and then when you do the consultation you send them three like fitting bras or some sort of measurement kit to actually actually the measurement that might be another opportunity so we were investors in a company. Called Bench made modern. What they did was they would make a three d? Cad Drawing of Your Customized Sofa which was you know fifty six inches or fifty four inches and they would send you this print out a fifty inch couch on it on paper in a tube. You've fifty inch fifty one inch to inch all the way to sixty inches and you tape it to your floor and you black. You know what you know if we were you know like got married. And this was our living room. He'd be like Oh here. We are like what do you think honey. Do you WanNa make fifty two or fifty six. You've put aside table there and you actually tape it to the floor and it actually worked. Yeah so there might be a creative solution there now. What was your second problem? We had another challenge drinks for returns and exchanges which tags this might be a pricing issue. I'm assuming you charge twenty four or thirty four dollars for this bra eighty eighty. I don't know the last default of Rob Two hundred forty a natural guy. Just let our price point is somewhere between a athletes in a lululemon right. It's athletic Ross. Eighty perfect so at eighty dollars cost twenty dollars to make or something like that so you you have. You might just need a little more margin to absorb the stuff where you might need to sell them in three packs or something to absorb this kind of an issue so might be a pricing issue. uh-huh and this is where you're going to find out really quickly if you actually do have product market fit because if people aren't willing to pay extra for them you know that you might have a problem like the Tommy John Underwear not cheap. They're not competing on price. But they are competing on the quality of the fabrics. The feel al and I like every year or two I try a different type of underwear and just go back Tommy. John's every time it's interesting Tommy. John's like twelve at a time. And then I take the other twelve and I just throw them away twelve new ones in every whatever eighteen months. Yeah it's interesting. When we do pop ups we sell out like we just said one a couple of weeks ago in New York sold out in two hours but it's translating that onto online sales show? If that's the case you might be in a clicks and bricks kind of situation. Relation was the term people used to use for this. You Might WanNa find somebody who doesn't carry bras currently and do a BRA party and just use is that it might also another interesting idea if everybody's buying up all the instagram ads on facebook ads and twitter ads and it's not a good place to buy anymore. Maybe you do MLM because that has a bad connotation but an ambassador program where you find your most passionate customers you say. Have you ever considered being an ambassador. We'll pay you two hundred dollars a month or whatever one hundred dollars a month plus give you a for free and all we want you to do is do abroad party and you might be people you can empower to be to start this whole company off as a from the ground up and if there's there's that much margin and abroad if you say to them listen the browser eighty dollars and if you sell them we'll give you thirty dollars. ABROA- yeah we're doing right now we're giving them Eight We give them the BRA at a very very discounted costs and then we're giving them eight percent up until they hit a certain number and then it jumps support percent for the affiliates yet brand new ambassadors using a third party for that. Or you know just there's A. There's an APP that does it for us. I Yeah I mean this a bunch of different websites that do that kind of stuff. The ambassador programs in the early days or quite effectively. Because then you build the space of really passionate users how many Bras Rossi sold today about twenty three hundred great. So you're really in an interesting position you you have a database of couple of hundred people who loved the product. Well a couple of you probably have a database database of hundreds of people of which dozens might be super passionate about. Do you know who those dozens are. Do you have a formal tactical way of operationally identifying them so the answer is kind of we're still too small and the market is too vast to really. There's there's gold gold nuggets in there so our big consumer markets curvy women obviously and then new moms women who have gone through breast cancer and then women who are older so as they've gone through kind of their menopause journey they're not stopping being active. They're coming back and they're the ones that are buying repeat but they're not on facebook as booking instagram. They see an article that's written in the Pittsburgh be and and that's where they find us. Yeah so there's so many tactical things there. It's great yeah and I think you should really take some great pride and joy in the fact that you got to hear and now you're faced the next next set of complex problems. Yeah which the fun part about these problems. They're they're very tactical right and the way to solve these is tasked stuff and to talk to people who have done it before. And that's my hope for you. It's one of the reasons the accelerator that we run has been very effective. Live is once people go through the accelerator. We have a slack channel or second stints with two or three hundred founders in it and one of the rooms this is about DC ones about growth hacking. You no one's about fundraising etcetera and they can help each other and share notes because even although it might not be a sim might not be the exact playbook it might rhyme a little bit and there's all kinds of different offline techniques that you're experimenting with that a very powerful you're not going to solve the mall instantly. I think you have to get comfortable with maybe between three and ten times trying to address address these problems to actually solve them. Yeah now that's the hard part of this journey is you're like okay. We're going to solve the landing pages and have to solve paid and we have to solve influence. Josh and fundraise and fundraise off feels like really Difficult the good news is if you can find just one thing that works even a modest level level that you can control lean into it so find something in there if you know. It's you know boomers and you know whatever forty to seventy years old. Then that works. Those people do exist somewhere online and knowing that ideal customer and just leaning into it I'll give an example We had a company that applied to the accelerator called Panty prop which then rebrand as Ruby Ano- and they make Swimsuits and underwear aware for when you have your period that don't leak. And that don't require tamp that can be used with pad and they wound up getting incredible. Seo So for some reason about swimming when you're on your period and had to deal with that without Tampa and they just knew the MOMS of teens teens were. This was a very important problem to solve. Yes and when you have that. ICP be ideal customer profile like that. Yeah that can be very freeing when when crystal new and she was just Spoke at one of our events scale when crystal figured out that her ideal L. customer profile was the mom whose daughter was just having a period or had recently started having period that really became the North Star of the company Eh and then they made a kit for your first menstrual cycle and they started doing events around that I can't and kind of celebrating womanhood and that process and boy did they figure it out so for you. If it's people who have menopause or post childbirth and the Bresser larger for whatever reason of because of the hormones and breast feeding lean into one get the dial in an ideal customer profile by six or seven of them and that maybe isn't price sensitive. Yes yes. Like boomers are not price sensitive. And that's why they've been our our most successful market but it is market that it's not as easy as writing in a facebook ad. This has been amazing. We went double overtime. Which means super promising as a company you should apply to our accelerator? Let's give it up for release from ause. Well done nicely all right. Welcome back to this week in startups live all right well done promise or pronounce. Aw Pranav knows that's right. Pronounce got got it. All right these are orange and blue shoes in front of me. which are the Knicks colors? So you're trolling me. Great Way to start this out of terrible mixer and we'll always be. Yeah thanks for that all right next guest joking. It's brutal all right. So you have a company called GLIMP- G. L. Y. P. H.. And you make these. Are they slippers shoes. Slides really really call these. What are the kids? Call these there. WHOA I lo- I right? I knew that so. You have a company that makes loafers. That's right that's correct all right right. So it's a direct to consumer loafer. That's right why should I buy your loafers. And not whatever comes up. First on Amazon Amazon. I wouldn't buy what comes first on Amazon whatever's got the highest reno atmosphere. How that album works? A little suspect will suspect. Yeah okay so whichever. One has the highest rating on there. What what why are yours better? So so. Cliffs are made with digital knitting technology in our goal from a design. Standpoint has been the only pair of shoes somebody needs to own their most versatile bear shoes so for guys specifically a Lotta guys we find like where them to wedding with the suit. They'll wear them on the beach and and I kind of everything in between so if you like to travel light that could be one reason you a fan of these frazier said Yes us your fan of the loafers. Yes you said digital knitting. That's what you said digital knitting. That's right nobody here knows what that means. What does that mean I know a digital means and I know what knitting is what is digital knitting? mean no so. It means that the upper of the shoes designed with computer and constructed with factory factory automation. And so this technology to do this kind of thing that's been around for a while but in the last few years it's kind a lot better and so these automated knitting machines have become come much more precise than they were in the past and they become a lot quicker. Why is that important? It's important because you can make products like this so maybe five or ten years ago go you can make these. How how we're loafers made previously if it wasn't done with digital knitting technology will so usually you you'd make a low for out of a different material? So this is a blend of recyclable fiber fiber traditionally loafers or made with leather. So you can use a different material. Is it more expensive or less expensive. It depends on the loafer. We sell them for one hundred twenty five dollars talking more about your cost so if I were to buy a leather or a pleasure or vinyl or digital knitting knitting technology those are all different technologies. Is it more expensive for you to make it this way or is it cheaper or the same. It depends on Michou so if you get into the equivalent. Yeah yes if you find a way just as note for everybody says we're all entrepreneurs it depends the worst answer ever. You're the expert Bert. So when I ask you a question like where any investor plant a flag and have a position and it depends. We know it depends. What we're looking for is for you to to me saying is a coffee shop nearby and people are like it depends and it's like well? What does it depend on? How far do you want to what what what Clive I have coffee do you want? Just be like. There's three coffee shops within ten blocks of here the most expensive hip one is the cheapest enclosed this. This is why and the middle of Road starbucks is two blocks away in Z.. That's like crisp. And it's one of the things we train people in our accelerator is to answer questions since that. Keep the dialogue going and don't frustrate the investors who are trying to invest in your company. So let's try it again. Is it cheaper for you digital threading already make a leather loffer for you as the producer of these rights. I I think it's comparable to you know maybe I could Cole Haan lauffer. So what does depend on is the quality of leather. That's being used so most leather out there. Pretty cheap doesn't last very long is comparable to that cost if you you you know if you have a bunch of really high end shoes then that weather might be more more expensive. Let me show you how to answer that question. Great question for a comparable lifespan. The comparable life span of equality. Leather is going to be about thirty dollars to make that loffer for us our loafers that are made with digital threading will last twice as long as even the highest quality leather and costs the same and some cases for the most premium leather which is about fifty dollars. There's a loafer we can do it for forty percent last. So it's a great question so just like you're. You're doing the sorting and normalization of all the variables for me to I understand so basically it costs you what to make one hundred twenty dollars shoe ballpark. Ten Twenty Twenty five twenty five and do you own on that machine. Is that a big expensive machine. Make these in China or Taiwan or something. We work with manufacturing partners in China. I think in the long run you can do it yourself. But the machines Sheen's themselves are very expensive. What do they cost and who makes them? There's two companies that make these machines so they're Shimazaki and stole Install okay let's try it so she she must accused. Japanese stole is German but the people that are great at operating these machines in the engineers on them are primarily Asia in southern genes are about one hundred hundred thousand dollars so they're expensive in two thousand dollars by the way it's not prohibitively expensive for us right now. It's not for you not for you like we're venture capital. It'll kind of like show to see how we one hundred thousand dollars to have a backup spare and the reason I ask you that question. I'm going to give you a little background. That was a probing question that I don't care the answer to. I actually don't care that much what I wanted to know was do you know who makes them. and Are you like so obsessed with this that you could tell me the names of how much they cost. It's a probing question that question wasn't about. The shoe is about you and you passed it with flying colors. So congratulations nations. Did everybody feel his credibility. Go up when he answered that. And that's what investors are doing. They ask you a question which is why you have to be great at answering questions You're not yet fifty fifty but we'll work on it. Okay tell me your biggest challenge our biggest challenges around goal setting deceive you. Some context on the ground in China for eight months came back so that a presale really. Just you know selling backpack people. Try them on buying them to that. That gone to five hundred startups. Sold out another small batch. Now we're doing a few thousand dollars in revenue per day. We just launched again last week but so the question for us is like really like what our goal should be in order to raise institutional seed round and like we Kinda have this thing where we're selling them online. We're using social media channels. We're doing some paid some organic and there's kind of this thing where we can sell them profitably at one amount but we can also if we want up dispense and crank things we can sort of break even or lose more but will grow more quickly and so it's really hard for us to know like what our goal is to raise that reineck. What should we what we should be doing? We've kind of taken in. You know a a few hundred k now off some great angel investors but we'd love to really scale the company up. I think we need institutional money to do that. I just WANNA know how to get their great great question. Okay so wrong unpack it a little bit for the audience and you can tell me if I'm wrong you've gone through an accelerator great You sold a couple of thousand pairs of these in one or two runs of shoes news. You did it Guerilla style. Maybe you tested some page. You did it in person you do whatever it took. You made a little bit of money. So you've sold. How many pairs total total? We've sold about prior at five hundred fifty K.. Where some we doesn't fifty K.? Before we last week okay. Since last week we've done around twenty K.. In Revenue Eh. Okay total number of shoes sold than is thousand. Two Thousand Pairs. Yeah less than I probably like eight hundred okay. So you're still in. The product market fit bit phase. So you're still trying to figure out what consumers think of these. Do they want them. And you're just starting the GO-TO market phase. So that's a little bit early for Venture Capitalist Venture Capitalists today are looking for indeed AC- companies. I would say a minimum minimum of five million dollars in sales. Let me say that again. Five million dollars in sales is what a venture capital firm would wanNA have to invest venture capital capital firms are now doing typically five and ten million dollar investments for a series for twenty percent of the company in order to have a twenty percent of five million dollars. That's twenty five million post money valuation right. The country's gotTa be twenty five million in order to be worth twenty five million you'd need to have about five million ars in revenue five or ten times five million would be twenty five to fifty million right. So that's how people will value the company that's the goal to get VC's and I'm talking about outlined benchmark or sequoia craft ventures in recent Horowitz Kleiner Perkins light speed. They tend to invest in my experience when there's more more traction in these type of companies once in a while if they know the founder they've worked with them before maybe they would do it pre-funding so you're talking about seed funds so we're talking about a homebrew homebrew or a Cape or capital or cowboy ventures repair ventures. Now how do they make their decisions. They would look at this. Yes I think and we would look at this the same way What's the union economics on this? WHO's the founder? Do they have some unique unique insight with this product and what are the customers customers. Think of it and that last part I think is super important. One of the reasons Adidas Company can break out is because the consumers are so passionate about it and the product market fit is so extraordinary that repeat sales and refer a friend Metrics off the charts. So I think birds or oil oil birds at what is it Adam or atomic atoms. Some of these things had very passionate user user bases so I think having passionate user base really matters here people who ordered many times many different versions of it and then the economic works wchs are important. You're also in a very crowded space. I think is that right. I think that's right. Yeah and I think people are a little spooked right now because of what happened to all birds words and they got copied by Amazon basics and stuff like that so I think people fear Amazon. You need to have an answer for that. And so I I would look at building this as a sustainable business with great margins I would not try to have growth at all costs. Because it's it's a little bit out of your hands The venture capital communities current view of data see products in highly competitive space. Like shoes. Because you're not early you're late right. You're couple years after all birds and other options in shoes so I think you've got a challenging situation. Which is why I would figure out how to make this unit economics work? How much does it cost you to acquire a customer paid marketing channels? Today are paid Caq. Jack Paid CAC is twenty seven dollars and then about half of our sales to date have been been free so referrals or people finding out about it. Great Tell me about the referral program. How does it work? We don't have a referral program so just people telling each other got word of mouth is what you refer to okay word of mouth means. There's no compensation referral means. Things are some compensation for the people doing the referring so that might be something to turn on some sort of referral program. If you refer you get ten dollars off you get ten dollars for for our friend anybody here ever tweet or share socially a dropbox give five gay. Get Five GIG or Uber. Give twenty-five get twenty five. Everybody ever do that. I have okay. Good half the people in the room. And that's all you need. So that's great. That's a great opportunity. Turn that on so now since you said. These costs one hundred twenty and it's twenty seven dollars. They're one twenty-five yet mcgann. twenty-five Caq is twenty-seven customer acquisition costs twenty seven dollars. You told us a ratings cost twenty or thirty to make and ship Yup. Yeah in that range okay. Let's run it up to thirty the bigger of the two numbers round the CAC up to thirty. That means every time you acquire customer online you get sixty sixty five dollars in profit and if some percent have returns five percent or ten percent of whip the breakage winds up being thank you might be clearing fifty dollars per order who's also shipping people's houses tariffs. There's other cost cake then. I think when they another ten in yeah you make forty dollars of the one hundred twenty five. Yep I think that's fair forty dollars would then let us the cactus twenty seven every time you get a customer and get their money take that money and spend it on the next customer correct the trend I think so in the the Caq you have is something you can kind of control in so the more dollars that you're spending per day the higher you're GonNa get more revenue you're going to rent so I think to your original question is what you should do. Here is I think you should run a profitable business And get passionate users and then be able to sell that in twenty twenty two investors. This is profitable already we can just keep acquiring customers if you give us more money. That's not going to office space or me giving myself a raise or paying back some loan I took. It's is just strictly going into paying for more online advertising. And I've proven it over these twelve months these three months so three to six months. It's of ten percent growth month over month in paid advertising resulting in growth profitably. I think it's a no brainer that you close a seed round. But you don't have that you have spike. Yeah we just selling out. We'd have these really small batches. We don't have any money and we started the company so we take our money by more shoes a four month lag from when you place an order to on the shoes was sitting in a warehouse in the United States. we've got the done at three in because of five hundred. I think now we've got enough cash to have consistent been Tory. Yeah so I think that. You're on on the cusp. I would not go for growth at all. Costs that is unnecessary. Because I think the investment community after we work. We're now moving into a post growth era and moving into a profitability era. The public markets want profitability. The private markets wanted to growth and now how growth at all costs I would say and now we're GONNA move into a new era which is growth is we want growth. That's reasonable and strong growth and strong prophets as opposed to. Don't worry about the prophet to raise prices later. Let's raise prices when we get to one hundred million customers right. That may have worked for Uber. Uber or Airbnb to like raise prices. Later I don't recommend it for you in twenty twenty because remember you're operating in a system known as the the world and in that world there are sub systems in the subsystems are the public markets in the private markets and investors investors. Right now our feeling very cautious about growth at all costs so under no circumstances would I tau any of our companies to go for growth at all costs and I'm on the board of a lot of companies with this does come. It's a really pressing question. So I think you're you're thinking the right way that doesn't mean you can't have growth goals. It's just that the goal the five acting revenue. year-over-year is no longer. I think really interesting to people if you can do three times year-over-year sustainably so five or six times. A year over year growth unsustainably not attractive to investors. I believe today three times euro. Three axing year. We're over year sustainably for. That's really helpful. I appreciate a well done. Let's give Pranav Pranav yet. PRANAV Broncos a big round of applause and thank you these are amazing. How did you know nine and a half?

Let's get back this amazing episode. Everybody wanted this week in. Start up We're talking getting crisp by like right next up on. The show is Mark Doc. And he's from a company called recapped a company which recaps failing startups. Now no no okay. What does recapped do doc great question so we found out that terrible word for finance? After we started the company recap means this is a total shit show. How do we fix it? We just take everybody on the CAP table. Able we destroy any equity they have and then give it to the next people so we don't do that so we are the first project management platform built specifically typically for businesses to us with their clients. You're the first project management software for companies to us with their clients so as opposed to using Asana UH in my organization which we do love I would use. I can't use Asana with our clients. Have you ever tried inviting twelve all different stakeholders in there. Actually haven't now okay. So that multi-player multi mode multiplayer yes project management was single player. Went to multi not player your multi organization specifically around closing complex deals managing pilots and then on boarding those customers got it so oh who would be your ideal customer. Tell me about your ideal customer profile. The creek questions so we actually have two right. Now that we're experimenting with one is startups of any size you now if they have a complicated sales process or implementation where there's a lot of checklists lot of moving parts and deals fall apart that's the ideal one the second one that we're having good luck now with closing are the fortune five hundred enterprise companies have twelve month sales cycles lot again. A lot of moving parts a lot of complexity everything falls apart at a certain face. Okay so I'm at an enterprise software company and I need to sell into a big the company and its a three to six months south psycho. And there's a bunch of things that have to be done in order to close that sal you make some checklists for us to on both sides hides work on the implementation scope of work etc.. So if I'm just doing this internally I can use whatever task manager I have whatever plug in for slack or Asana UH perfect but if I wanted to have my client. Let's say the client was Goldman Sachs for software and there have a compliance department they have technical. Api Department they have it you can invite their it department. You can invite all of their people and stakeholders into the checkpoints and say beazer your action items in order to get the deal closed. Exactly Okay Hatch. Come up with that idea. I wonder I needed myself. So what so as a VP of sales leading couple sales teams. And I spend years before that in what company it's called Academy it's it's like the pre version of lambda school got it so you would have enterprise partnerships partnerships. It's interesting she had an itch scratched. It I'm great. How many is the product launch recapped launch? Yes so we came out of private Beta couple months back and have decent money customers a dozen two two thousand or three three dozen three dozen customers of those customers. How many are paying you? All of them okay. Now now you got my interest on top of the head. Yeah so we did an Alpha launch earlier last year and about twelve hundred one time payments so we have a couple of hundred monthly active users. Got It perfect great. You're testing so just you know what's going through the mind of an investor. I'm like I don't understand if this product is really necessary or not the sounds like maybe it's too niche but then you sort of the results were so good you know you. You could fake a half dozen customers my two fraternity brothers others my cousin. The person the two companies I worked for before I convinced them to buy the software on their corporate cards. And you can kind of fake it. I'm not saying that. Other accelerators editors do this kind of stuff and they've other company courage kind of like faking south but I do see that little bit of faking and I'm like where did you source these first five or six companies first and then eventually And then I just cut them off the past and I'm like did you work at that company before because those you make the best customers or is it a friend of yours. Who's doing you a favor? Verlander new solid. Because that's really good. If you can sell into your network secretary give them permission to admit it than they admit it. And I'm like okay. Well this is a complete fraud. I'd say that on my mind line not outlined so I usually think let's talk about the sixth seventh and eighth customers so for you. Thirty six can't be faked. What's your biggest challenge today? Yeah so actually. It's your point so really when we're talking to customers and this is kind of two fold because his customers and investors so there's really two it's one we get on a call and someone's like Oh my God. This is a huge problem for me. Never solution out there all by the spot and makes up about thirty percent of the people we've talked to the other seventy percents whether they're investors are customers are like the need educating so how do we balance or how do we find those early adopters and when we were also talking. VC's even even though we have revenue we have traction where sometimes told that we're too early even if they invest in pre revenue companies. Okay so if you ever break makeup with somebody like in a romantic relationship once or twice okay in the hours days or weeks before months before making that decision would you say that it was anxiety producing or no big deal. Okay so now you know what it's like to be an investor it's incredibly anxiety producing to tell somebody who's sharing their hopes and dreams that you spent an hour with and maybe our mutual friend introduced thus and now I have to tell you. Oh my God. Thank you so much for sharing your wife's work. No I mean it is hard. So that's why I always say not yet and I try to founders. The candidate reasons why that makes me the Unicorn of investors because most investors do not like to be honest honest about this because it could hurt people's feelings hurt people's feelings and you're like listen I don't want to date you. You're just really annoying. You know imagine saying that to somebody like I can't stay in this this relationship you're very annoying. Is that person going to come back and date you if you made a mistake. And what are they. You know it's so. Investors are not honest with their feedback. And so I would. Whatever they're telling you I would write it down? And then I would do probing questions to try to figure out what the actual reason is so they they say not enough revenue not enough customers. You say totally get it. That's awesome if there was a certain number. I'm not going to hold you to this. But if there was a certain number of of customers or revenue that would be a great time for me to re engage with your firm. What would that number be? And if they say fifty thousand dollars a month okay they probably are being honest if they say yeah. I have to give that some dawn talk to my partners. Or there's like any paws and the paws is not followed by a number. Then that reason was probably not the actual reason was probably. They don't like you. They don't like the idea. They don't have any money left in their fund. I would just not take it personally. I would just move on very quickly because it is a numbers game and you only have to get one you need only have one person say yes for everything to go right for you. She can't take it personal most. VC's Meet in person with a hundred or two hundred people to make one investment that means ninety nine hundred ninety. Nine people are getting bad news so you seem like a very logical driven person to me and for you. It must be short-circuiting to get no so I treated very much like tails process. which for me? It's the same thing right. Every knows one closer to yes frank but for us it's really just like when we see them. Invest in companies. Is that have nothing more than slide. Okay I guess that's in the dark place now. You're in the really dark place. So jealousy anger frustration to the dark side. They will lead. This is the road to darkness earns. I literally had this happen. All the time and it typically correlates with the most driven founders. I just saw X.. Company raise one hundred million dollars for less than a fraction of what we've just done. How on Earth did that happen? I'm going to go raise one hundred million dollars for my company and it's like I have to sit down and say okay. You don't know what happened on the other side of that relationship. They could have been in a fraternity together or worked at Goldman Sachs together and they are gist simpatico and they WANNA do big projects together or that could be a first time investor. WHO's about to lose one hundred million dollars making the biggest mistake of their life and that was the stupidest bet you could ever make? But you're sitting there going. Why can't I get somebody to make that kind of investment? I E imagine you were running a co working space that launch. Watch before we work and then you watch we work raise a billion dollars and then two billion dollars and ten billion dollars you would be bouncing off the were you like. I know I looked at that building. I I know what they paid. The broker told me what they're paying. Doesn't everybody understand that they're losing money on on that office. Every customer they get they lose one hundred dollars a month and that person just invested in their company. They're going to lose all their money. You're right so I had this happen all the time. And there are weird things that happen in this world all the time and you have partial information. Your job is to ignore the out wires and focus on the normal companies. VC's invest today in SAS companies. That have low churn that that have land and expand and VC's tend to engage when they have to three or four million dollars in annual. Run rate are you anywhere near those numbers I everything except for the revenue great. So you're not in the VC car yet and when VC's do jump the fence and give a fabulous amount of money to somebody somebody. It tends to be somebody they worked with before. Who took the company public? Did you take a company public or salad. And where did you work with before you do any of your current investors. Are they friends friends of yours. Who Knew you before the angels will be correct so now you proven it because there's somebody who doesn't have rich friends who can't get the angels was like? I have more traction attraction than that guy and he got angels to do it and he doesn't know that those angels are people who trust you from your previous relationships right. So that's what's happening in the world and so so if that's what's happening in the world you have to look at the average not the outliers. So if in their portfolio two or three things they invested in pre revenue. That's fine they're probably know that person previously and had success with them. Don't take don't take it too personal because you're looking at it with logic and it has to do with relationships and also people make mistakes like Masayoshi Sun looked like the guy in the room. which by the way I know he is is one of the smartest guys in the room and now he looks like a fool? I can assure you. Masayoshi Sun is the furthest thing from a fool and closer to brilliant and amongst the investors of all time. He just happens to have made a mistake or two here which can happen. So what are the things you can control You can control getting those meetings being gracious and trying to figure out ignoring what people tell you. The reason reason they're not investing and just trying to get when you re engage with them. It is a numbers game. Your job is to figure out why they said no press them a couple times to figure out what what what could have resulted in A. Yes if they're willing to give it to you if they're not dunk on them later. When you actually have revenue and then and there's a series of investors who liked to take make investments in companies with under a million in revenue kind of my bread and butter today is finding companies that have three to fifty thousand dollars in revenue and getting them to come to the accelerate and solving this very acute problem? which is how do you get people to make a decision here? Because there's too many companies to deal with. I'll give you a handful of examples. Fit Bot had three thousand dollars a month and revenue when they came there are a million dollars a month and revenue now two years later lead. IQ had two or three hundred dollars a month in revenue. I can't say what they're making exactly because they haven't been public public about it but it's millions of dollars and so people will make the decision as your credibility goes up so oil you can do is focus on getting your credibility and a delight. Your customers just delight your customers. I introduced Uber. twenty-one investors in a room half the size of this three people said yes including including me one thousand nine hundred no the defining company of the last ten years is Uber that's the highest valuation doubled the nearest competitor. The most important company last cycle accompany before that was facebook the company before that was Google Company before that was Microsoft or apple or both so most investors miss so for for you to try to put any logic into it is a fool's errand makes sense okay. You should apply to the accelerator great job. Let's hear it one more time for mark. Awesome Prizes Been Great.

That was really the P._B._S.. Was the best one on the one you saw. The remastered is I'm talking one. That's on demand right now under documentaries that I think <hes> C._N._N.. C._N._N.. Put out a officially. It's like the footage is so good. It looks like it was filmed yesterday. Crazy how crystal clear the reminds me of the how good the movies are the cinematic the right stuff right right of course there's an amazing amazing and then Apolda. Tom Hanks Apollo thirteen the wives the way they because in this re in the real documentary you can see then those movies how they totally captured the style the fashion the Hairdos the whole thing then reel footage looks exactly like the movie footage unbelievable while they study they study that shit so but man it was fifty years ago that we went to the moon and going through that documentary it's amazing all the steps that had to go perfectly right or we were gonNA lose those astronauts what's in the Nazi factor the whole thing to Nazi factor Werner von Braun. They're all Nazis the whole all the Germans that they brought over to pioneer the space program here. We're all I thought it was log islanders. No they worked on a rocket or something and why is my voice getting sticking on Long Island wait the Germans built a technology for Apollo Eleven Huntsville Alabama. The Space Rocket Centers Huntsville Alabama Werner von Braun was upon on here the program designed the Saturn rockets that were the rockets that carry the whole any all that stuff and so the core team three or four of them were Germans and they were Nazis. They got him out war tunes had come over here and help us. This is the nuclear program those world you watch the documentary Carl about US landing on the Moon Adore tiny. I living complete analog life. That's good for you became these house and watch him crush jeopardy. I don't think those guys are supposed to be the original astronauts and they lose a few and training three died. The first accident three Gus grissom into other guys died in the fire where they couldn't get out of the capsule velcro caught on fire or something trauma or something. I couldn't get him out the door shut. Something crazy couldn't get them in town. That was the most tragic but there were a couple of them. You know he had never heard I told you earlier he had never heard Gil Scott Heron Whitey's on the moon. I haven't heard in honor of the Moon Landlords and honor of moon landing week. I go carl you ever heard this. I go everybody. Wasn't that interested. What a what a great capture like what the ghetto actually forgiven how ridiculous they thought it was like we're starving out here you going off into my sister now? What is on the Moon Oh what a great her phasing ause beginning this well but what is on the move? You're in the E._R.. In the Bronx you really worried about one small snap for man now. He's trying to say that whole was for Whitey more than anybody under saying not everyone. It wasn't the you posted you thought it was great that fifty years ago that this country united and watched yes love and admiration and I just like the non necessarily Carl gave me a boo tangles motherfucker. I was having emotional moment looking at with I was looking up at the mood fifty years later and I just had thought and then I have to deal with this asshole right so I hit him with my k. and you know it was it was a truce push push allen but but all the staps men that one maneuver where they had I think it was Columbia that help me out where they had a rotate all the way around then go back in all right to to attach to the Eagle yes yeah they had to do a flip around a flip around us live around which is insane and then when they landed the Eagle Goal Columbia was rotating the moon with Michael Collins. We all know that Michael Collins didn't get to go on the moon and then when Neil Armstrong was land on the moon there was a football field type crater that he had a maneuver around and supposedly he he had less than thirty seconds worth fuel left. That's what they said. Yes absolutely so how. How did they get the fuel to take off to go back to where Michael Collins is rotating in Columbia Buzz Aldrin's backpack hit something in broke a switch Joe yeah he he turned and moved and it made snapped off some switch that was a switch was one of the last thing that you needed to switch likely on position before they leave and he forgot what they said he grabbed something and made a little makeshift? Thanks shifting and stuck it back in there and it went from we have no connection we have and they have to switch it why something like the old macgyver June gum and baling wire and hit someone they're like Oh we have a connection flip the switch and the best part of that documentary was they had their heartbeats. Oh yeah they were monitoring their heartbeats and Neil Armstrong was landing the thing so he his his heart rate was something like one hundred fifty two beats a minute and then they had buzz Aldrin who was just chilling Dylan at least cycle. That's interviewed him. We've had him on. He's amazed I love buzz altering and still he'll just chilling Neil Armstrong. I was like the unbelievable but it was it was a great doctor different way. I've walked in guys. You're you're sous-chef. He's showing me you on Telemundo their car. Oh man that girl but it's just scared again why and then and then your boy he loves you because he goes. You think Carl's funny English. Check this out. Check out how funny he is in Spanish and I'm like I I. I don't know spatters. Oh my God they took six years. I took forty five. I picked up chef. You said chef. I know that were cool. I'm Bilingual Deli the other day it's on the upper side and on the side of my look to faults in the up they don't think false small guy from Israel right so the these three guys they're making the sandwich making sandwiches the back and they're talking in Spanish and they'd look at me realize I'm not Spanish.

Wwe WWF superstar all the time and we have an announcement the waiter of last week's debate which we undertaker and Chris Jericho from the polls. Was Chris Jericho.

Are you happy with the results? Because I know how to because I let him on the ticket slide the last one I should I should went on. I should went show. Michaels Alaska so Jericho is just. He's left so many like he's done so many things Undertaker's been loyal to the company men. But it was up to you as you as you as Josie guys one so Jericho is. He want to polls now so he gets to the by the finals. He goes out of after Johnson of beating Randy Orton last week and stone call beating Brock last week we gotta talk about seen versus Stone cold this one is going to be a A head scratcher. Which I think I always thought these two would be the finals or be seen overseas undertaker but when you think wwe and the most merch. I I'm pretty sure stone-cold Encino all the top merchandise people of all time We put Sina you put Stone Cold You put Deacs you put Like you said those guys. Those guys are up there punk Daniel Bryan. Yeah those guys out there but like you said last week you know you'd like during the attitude era use you the amount of the amount of three sixteen church. You saw was bananas. De de Deborah Everywhere fucking late they will all over the fucking place union. You even think motherfuckers were fucking real wrestling fan. Say What the Hell Are you doing wearing? I should it a new Gucci And then you have John. Seen on the merchandise side and it's like I every single kid in my school other dressed up Johnson for Halloween or more his chain gang shirt guys just like that all the time. What do you mean your White Justyna bore the white the white outfit from animal crossing the fucking Jordan sneakers but the Both both loyal to the company at their at their times. Don't go as obviously you know an EC- W W W previously but once he once he joined the wwe ship he didn't leave you. Consider that loyalty in a way or do you consider him still laying like the other guys who didn't move around like it's GonNa take her. He didn't leave no matter what This one he. He was the quintessential model of what s may from Straight out of lovie W Let's make a sports entertainer fucking prototype. And that's what they got that that was him. Who's don't call no Sina talks? Don't go now I just want to go to a I wanna I wanna I because stone cold Songkhla was Mr Reinvent the whole fuck in their the the era of wrestling right. I wanted to go. I wanted to go to see the first because casino is very underdog story. I just watched the ruthless aggression episode again with CNN. I did not know I completely forgot that. During his run before the Fella nomex gimmick they were about a fire him like he had no character. He had no charisma. He had the worst gear on the planet and the fans. Were just not over with him. Do you remember any memories of the early Johnson before the Thug Annex Gimmick. And where are you a fan of it or was it too generic for you because I remember I watched went? The other nominees was around not before he looked like he looked like the create a wrestler. When you make them on fucking smackdown Shut your mouth for sucking create a fucking restless is like very default wrestler. He came in and he just looked like that. I was the prototype and I was. I think that was his name to a folk protest. Another bed name. I mean it just. You could've changed the gear. You could have gave him a better song they just you know. People love the ruthless aggression part of things. But there's no rules aggressive without character and if you don't have character in the wrestling business you're not you're just not gonNA make it. I feel especially back then. 'cause now it's all the whole fighter. Gimmick you have see the Octagon Gimmick where. I'm out of character. I just want here. I'm here to fight win belts crap. I get that I hate it but Sina was definitely not a character before the thug annex thing even when he did the The whole thing with Kurt Angle and afterwards when he was When he when he was in those throw away matches and fucking smackdown and shit. That's what I'm saying like. Okay now. That the Johnson even said on the documentary. He was like if you if you people come up to me and tell me how successful. I was before thug annex and I was and he and he told them he was like. Are you still watching the same program me that failed? He was like I was going to get fired from because of how bad and stale I was and the you know the story about. How is that a novice gimmick came upon right at a whole bus ride and they heard a freestyle and shit like that. Boswell Makishi nevertheless the Stephanie Heard. It was like you make something out of this. Their their story about saying that she didn't actually hear it at. She heard somebody say that he can do that. And then she. He did it for her. And that's when it was that it happened Well th that's true that I came on on TV. Because then they replayed that of the Halloween special where Johnson a wrapped his elvis. Stephanie wasn't as Elvis. Sir was ver- Nella ice. Oh I'm white man. I don't know all right to white people who've jacked from the fucking Black Hotel. You're right you got it you nailed. It was the hair. No no that was that was Vanilla Acer. Well Guess What? I'm not culture. You all the Hamburglar hamburglar. I'm not cultured here. Losing to stoke calls came in from. Www came in he came in with that Ringmaster fucking gimmick under Teddy biondi. Who was bland. He was the blandest eating speak. It was like what are we doing here with this guy? Yeah No He before he was before the whole. We're GONNA reinvent you to Chile mic freeze. Chilly MC freeze. He was the ringmaster Which can you imagine if somebody gave you a paper? And one of the Gimmick names on there was Chili mic freeze. I would've I would've changed presents life today asks with that Shit. I'M GONNA get the Fuck Outta here you know what is It's funny about that. Like the different names and stuff like that Beyond the Mat or behind the Matt or whatever documentary was beyond everyone. Vince gave him the name Puke. He's he's GonNa he's got up here okay but in the documentary like at that time like during like the the the they were hyping that up. Yeah because Vince isn't George the the narrator even the Russell's like y'all have a big shot here Mike Nowadays Audi a joke and the fact that that was hype back in really show how the nineties was. But which don't call I think it was. It was a blessing in disguise with the whole beer. You know but. When did he really start? I think the king and the wing was winstone. Call really became three sixteen. That's when it started right. Well yeah that was because after the whole jake. The Snake Roberts thing and cut the Promo about That the jake was on his run with the his whole religious belief and stuff. He Yeah he he cut that Promo after he wanted. And then that's when it was like super over and Shit So each of them had different characters. But when I look at when I look at the winner of this this this this this competition I have to go at. GimMe Gimme stone coats. Top few besides events few regret the fewer Brett the biggest ones he has the the trilogy with Iraq. That was that was that was. Okay I I watched a few of matches. you had those. You had his his little runs with mankind. I mean he had he had some here on on a large scale. Although he had a smaller window than Sina did with the company he had bigger. More impactful feuds were guys in a business I mean whilst wellstone colds and on that time you know that that made her that Miguel break time for. Wwe So the fact That's that's don't call was the head of that when he had when he had a Madonna wrestlemainia match was shown Sean was was going to buy out afterwards. That was basically the the match that that helped put him over that and the IM match with With with with Brett. So what's that I was that she Pretty it was. The Best of the best metal is on a car through the rest of the show sucked stone cold. Just was what. Wwe was completely opposite of few years. Prior I I wanna I think so called. Biggest draw factor was. He wasn't duke the dumpster. He wasn't The Repo Man. He was a bad ass motherfucker. Who wanted to drink beer and kick ass right Ben? He had the three stages of Hell match AAA CHELSEA. Other ones that he had he had. Who's more relatable to the fan base? Though was seen or stone cold you guys watch. One of them was more like realistic. Holy Shit like I could rock with this weapon dude. 'cause I I was. I was a synagogue. I was a kid. I didn't I didn't Mind Sina and actually was a kid. I watched university show. Did you just freeze? I just lost him. I lost lost. I lost you all scheme so okay. I'll wait to call me back What happens when you social distancing ladies and gentlemen so GotTa find you? We're back I well. You know we're back live cool okay. What apple we sat down with something. You DID DISCONNECTION LOSS. What the fuck man we go. Okay I said now I had to bring you back and I said you go so yeah. It's different because with with your your era my eras different the worst part about seen grown men my age probably a couple of years younger than me who were stone cold fans and then Soco leaves and then you become John Cena Fan. That's Louis Eighty Louis. Louis Coyote Louis Coyote. He acts a War John. Cena shirts and hats and had the chain gang fucking chain and everything. What fucking God. You insane was wrong with you. I just don't understand the I don't understand what what's wrong with being seen a fan was because of a PG era it was it was kind of like being. A fan of your dorky is little brother. It was weird. I feel like especially around your age during the Times if you were a senior shirt you were considered a mook and don't get me wrong. I when he when he did his freestyles it should. I thought it was funny as Hell I I. My man got bars Spin and spin. But he got stupid with US spinner belts and all that shit sure was the duck in the ruthless aggression episode basically every wrestler said it. That was the most disrespectful thing they ever did with the spinner belt. My thing is just like an extra thing to sell merchandise. Of course they were going to do shit but it was like okay fine when he did it with the United States Bill. I get it because the way to the plate was that it was like it was already circular and in looked like a turntable something. That was fine but when you did it to the championship it was Really guys please all. You're not happy. We were had with a spinner boat. No but that's not. That's not John's for. Maybe it was who knows I was involved with us. She Ben is. Ben Is Right Stone cold save WWF. This is what I'm saying. Though because when we have these guys clashing a different arrows. You have a big part of the impact of you like if you save the fucking if you save the fucking how how the company was at the time And to be honest with you John Cena when he was champion he was W we was in a safe net. There was no real competition besides the growing of Tna stone-cold had a fight every week and try to make entertaining Entertaining show every week and I think he did that on the rustling scale. Ray What do you think about These guys going head to head with the wrestling and ring in ring work because I think both Emerson of not similar. But they're not as funny because John is known for his five moves of doom yet and don't call. No I three now. But you know what stow-n-go had to change after Owen Hart incident where Owen broke his neck. He couldn't wrestle like he used to wrestle so he has become the broiler that that's what you call adapting to to your environment. Scene was just like everybody knew what was coming. What was GONNA Mobile? What was going to come off but you see matches with him against CNN. Punk him against Sammy's. Zane him. Against Kevin Owens you seen that he made Like the goals with big big match. John that he he he can pull something out his ass. He can't pull out matches once he once. Once he started getting word of the five Moussa. Doom was like renovating his career. Even set in the back he was like. GimMe opportunities with these guys hence the US championship invitational every week on Raw. And he wanted to show that he had more moves in his He had more moves in his holster which he learned on the way. I think he learned last minute. But it's still that he can learn if he really wanted to end his widen his range of moves. I I don't think still doubting stone-cold st stuck to his fucking formula at the heart thing happened. What do you do is you mentioned what was the biggest rivalries of rose the biggest rivals rivalries and seen as For Seena I think the most I personally I want to go with seen an edge is my favorite Senior versus edge senior versus show michaels. In two thousand seven was very fucking good. I'm watching it right now. senior versus Shawn Michaels. A great match. Twenty three if you remember it Cnn also Cnn Orton actually was pretty good as well. Cnn triple h but nothing beats nothing seen overseas as for me. Nothing I've seen a senior or in Sina Brock Seabrook. Good one as well. Yes absolutely and I've seen a J styles if you WANNA throw another good one in there I kinda. I didn't mind their feud at all. Either if you WANNA to talk about current Not that far away with the recent The ones I do once I did hate Sina rock CNN. The Rock was obviously a stunt for money and it was pro. Poorly done is watched once in a lifetime again. Which was not really. WanNa let time terrible scene wrong which has seen a punk was awesome see. No punk was great But for me nothing be seen in edge. I as much as people hate the good guy seen a was henry's ride. Jbl as well. Those are great and even e- Even even when they did it again in two thousand and eight with them when they went to great American Bash. I was there Darla seat. Jbl during the New York City Street fight. I didn't mind that either. I think people hate Seena that while you than than than than what are you talking about? 'cause they're every single feud he's been in people praised? What's what what was wrong? Well what was wrong with him at edge? What was wrong with him and and HANG IN MONROE MARTIN RIGHT WHY. Because he had five moves he still made a work. If you'RE GONNA IF YOU'RE GONNA judge on the five moves doom than than you could judge half the half the WWe roster one thousand nine hundred brother because they had five or less. Have you not seen Kevin? Nash's moves it? I Love L. Kevin Ashes His his response to that. So this guy. His name is Nolan Ryan. And you had to tell me. The Best Pitcher of all time has one pitch a fastball. And he still can't be considered great. No no no. No yeah he he he's Reich Dulles won't say but see what that's my point. People hate seeing because of his low move set but was he not the number one guy for ten years. Now you look at you look at. Ut You dig about that longevity but you also think about how long stone cold could have been on top if he didn't get the neck injury if he didn't have to deal with the nagging nagging knee injuries They put them in a shitty storyline after the fucking on the invasion bullshit and he fucking turned and became a vince sympathizer. Yeah and in the whole thing would him versus Razor Ramon? I didn't either He was in limbo for a couple of years. I can I think his time Do you think what do you think the problem was during that time which don't call during that limbo time? You'd think they would. Do you think it was Vince himself. Or do you think it was the fans getting just a little bit stale with it. What is it about the later years? Winstone co went into limbo. Like you know what I'm saying. Like versus Razor Ramon Shitty invasion angle and like. They really not do him so they made him a general manager. Fucking Rick Bischoff. The best thing that happened with the invasion angle was the Booker T. Angle. That was the best thing to happen from that. Which Book Teaching on? One may be AAA mania. I said that every day let it go. Let it go. Which we need to have another debate on different episodes. I'm going to shout them out. Isaac said that I told them I was like I was watching. Wants to mania thirty five last night when Kofi when the Bell. Yeomanry were emotional. WanNa why? Because he's the first African American who won the belt is it goes. Oh Booker T. was different belt. It doesn't count. That's the that's the WCW chapters booker. T. So I was like the fucking taste booker. T's the first african-american word. W What what about the lock? He's Half No. We want a pure pure African. We want pure Africans. We WanNA pure black. Give me a pure black or and it's funny. I'm surprised viz never gave them our truth. The World Championship. He was close when he fought Johnson capital punishment. Yeah his Idol when he looks up to yeah it was getting there But during stone. Calls Tom. What do you think the problem was? Do you think he's going to stay? Do you think he would just getting to it? Was it was too much of the same thing with the guy or do you think you. His injuries were holding him. Back from being may not have also done with. I think he was. He was he needed a spark and he was like I needed something to get older. The vignettes were funny as hell. So actually when he was like Ham and Kurt Angle. Fighting for Vinci's Lov and shit like that right the Koumba Milo like that. Kinda Shit that yeah repeated European everything that fucking Vincent said during the meeting with the invasion group and it was like an undertaker was like. Can you shut the hell up breath? Bradley's Best Promo Breast Promo Guy. Yes he wasn't seen award or not saying about saying who's the Best pro-mugabe to him. Asena SOCAL I do like CENA's promos. I'm not mad I never medecine is Promo early on. Here's a little stale. But now I think he he could always come in and cut a promo. I always care when he grabs the Mike but nothing was better than watching Monday night. Raw and seeing Stone Co grab the MIC and go off doesn't matter who invents. What what he's starting to. That's fucking annoying. I hate to what thing I do But don't call was was known for you. Know starting for starting a lot of catchphrases he and he started a lot of up Like what and Slome cool said so I have you had anything about that. I've seen an really gave me a catch phrase or something that always remembers to that scene said. Besides you can't see me which was mang thoughts on the Promo. I think it's called. Winsor me on that point. I'm on the other end of the spectrum. I'm more of a senior guy because right now you can put on the mic. Like he's done recently and he still kills stockholders on sock gets on the Mike Right now and it's like who's drunk uncle. Just grab the fucking the wedding Mike to fucking gills the the the the the the congratulations announcements shit. In his defense. He said on his podcast a few weeks ago. He in his defense. He said that he wanted to do a an interview on the stone. Sixteen Day with him and Byron in the ring but Vince was hell bent on doing that. Funny Stupid Shit with Byron. And he said he wasn't for another reason why I'm going to explain later on in the episode. Why I'm done with this bullshit. Yes no I agree. I agree but don't sit in his defense he what he wanted to walk in the arena knowing he was going to do that. So can't be really mad at it but so Do this only bracken right the only one then the winter. This one goes on to face Jericho in the finals. So out of the two who do you choose Aurora Robert? This is Ross. Now I sit down. Think to myself. Who really who was rough man? It's Rothesay at this. Might be the toughest one for me. I don't know about you but this is easy for you a while. Thank I wanNA thank billion Anna. Don't take a Shero for vitamin in their wedding tonight. If it weren't for you to I won't be drinking. All these kinds of bears have my whiskey. Give me a hell. Yeah you're pussy tonight after marrying your life But for me it's a ruffling. It's it's rough like my shit. I took I'M GONNA have to go. Do you have an answer? Because I don't have one yet. Oh come on stopping be a man. Okay hamburger hat on and fucking be man. Shoot from the HIP. And I'm GonNa go with what I know what I think and I think the greatest wwe wwf superstar of all time. Is John Cena low? John Seen for. He's gotTa go the finals as much as you hate the guy he did. People people say the old stone cold save me but John didn't okay good argument but fun fact here. They were putting the rocket on Brock. Brock was supposed to be Johnson's position and he left because of his bullshit and they took a chance on this Guy Johnson and it took a chance on him and he became the number one merchandise guy in w e history. He became the face of the company for more than a decade out. Think so coke even say that and regardless if you liked him or not he put on a good mate event every fucking mania him versus Shawn. Great Emerson Triple Eight. I really enjoyed John. Cena vs fuck. Either rock was a little shaky but I will always remember when I think of wrestling and I grew up. The first thing that comes to my mind is Johnson versus edge ladder match for the championship and moments like that seeing Johnson against those great great heels He really he really made the ruthless aggression era in my opinion the best era in wwe. History. I consider ruthless aggression air better than the attitude era. So that's the case. I'm choosing Johnson over stone cold and by by the way you full you is really do love the attitude era. It was it was good does because you can costs and do a dirty a little risque. Things doesn't make a great. I just I watch some of us and it's like wow you guys really relied on the main event for the whole show. Yeah Yeah there's a lot of matches during the attitude era. That was like what the fuck is this. What is this head? Bangers versus any attitude era they brought out fucking Terry funk and call them chainsaw Charlie and you see what I'm saying. Are you fucking kidding me and you brought them out because of the fans were in know who that is really the fuck. Terry funk is once again. Vince McMahon not being educated with up unease but read. The question asked to you all we go to the polls who or do you have. I must tell you both men have done. Great fucking things for the company. They have phenomenal. They've done for nominees. John has brought merchandise brought a younger fan. Base is probably to blame to live fucking. Wwe had become Disney But yet the man is charismatic. The man had Ah Chemistry with many other wrestlers. I think he only had I had a fallout with only a handful of guys of course because you know he. We Politics One too many times which he shouldn't have buried the next The next the next. It's very the next but John is another guy that He had his. He had his faults. He was just. There are certain things that after a while for me it was just. I was like okay. I'm done with him I I really am I. I don't I don't WanNa see this guy anymore. I did have moments. Stole call coming in? It was rough. It was tough for him to come in. Came in from a weird background with the E C. W transition like I said with the ringmaster Ted. A Teddy didn't give him a migrant. Finally once they gave him the ball rolling stone cold persona ran he was probably the the emphasis of what the term tween really is because supposedly a hill but everybody fucking love him exactly Numerous numerous bouts that to this day are considered classics by by by Fans and critics alike had a big fucking hickup like I said with that whole invasion angle. And Vince McMahon You know alliance and Shit like that Really didn't really didn't WanNa play ball when it came to the brock ladner thing and Had to call it quits so for me. I have to say Greatest of all time when it comes to Johnson and stone cold is Aurora Gold Poll Stone. Cold Steve Austin. Because who are without him. Wwe would not exist. It will be done so scenic. I'm in no competition was laid out for them. There was no competition was stole. Call the Vince Angle. And all that Shit with red heart so Michael's all at the Rock W would not exist it. Would it would have been. Wcw WOULDA aided whole. I'm going stow-n-go. Stalled Co were going to the Paul again. Gentlemen Okay Well. You heard it here first. The poll will be posted on. Facebook is going to be posted right now. right. Now right now because we don't want to wait until Thursday right now you'll fuck you man exactly. I posted the other one the day I was there. Johnson and stone Our guys so this means you guys have the opportunity to vote again. Johnson or stone coast evolves in the winter of this poll will face Chris Jericho in the finals next week guys. I'm sorry the Skype I would have had it up and running but apparently it wasn't. I don't know why it was taking any calls. I'm going to see if I could get up and running for next week show hopefully next week. We're in better times. I don't think so. I think as a matter of fact everybody's going to be watching. We're supposed to have a WRESTLEMAINIA party but apparently I think we might watch it on fuck and Facebook Messenger. Which might be fun if you put it on the page. I got to see if we can hook out. Maybe we could do a whole group Watch along go watch along kind of thing. We'll do that with that. So guys On facebook live What do you got Wrestling rundown ready or what? You're watching wrestling ready. But I do watch wrestling. And then We can Hold on a second because I I at least queue up some cheap sag just I could I could. I could whatever you want to do. I've seen one down to all right. So let's run out quick and then we could go guys going around. We'll give you a bonus part of the show for facebook live.

Wrestling went down. Ladies and gentlemen the current Cram of I'll show ladies and gentlemen even you news whatever and so ladies gentlemen boys and Girls Children of All Ages. We are here. We are live rushing rundown yes. We are wrestling rundown his ear and once again we are here. Typical tabloid not taking no breaks motherfucker. So as to how started a segment to Robin Filial as all scared take you know the first piece of news we have is regarding to Wrestlemainia and no. It's not about the audience about the talent it has been confirmed by ESPN and from other outlets. That Roman reigns has officially pulled out of Wrestlemainia is not facing Goldberg. No more and a few other wrestlers on that list. It seems like Andrade not going to be at mania. A few others are not going to be at me. I think the MS is also sick and I don't and the numbers keep on growing now in regards to Roman reigns. It seems like there's still a masterful a match is going to be going on. But they're saying that the possible replacement will be Braun strowman. Oh Joe fight for universal belt but speculation says that Gobert will be retaining because of bronze Romans recent independent wrestling comments read. What are your thoughts and you think Roman is wrong for pulling out last minute because people are actually this is making news waves or out of the interwebs. Wait a minute. Goldberg will retain because a bronze fucking independent wrestling people saying that. They What's his name Ryan Satin he said that they might not give Bronco Brown the belt now because they said that if they can condoning what he said. Now podge is today about those comments. Kid they don't care. W media's a care about that shit wrestlers that's sports entertainers. What did he give a fuck about that shit? I don't know about your thoughts on this whole Russell's backing out last minute I mean you just be happening what. I've been the show Sydney to be happening. What's the latest yawns called instead of Ios? Vince will not give up. The show must go on. The show must go on. Chris Watt died that day. They still fucking made a damn show. When he did a show in wrestling they did like highlights shit like that yes but they still had something on TV. What so Who's to blame here? It's it's I mean this. Beyond is he race stereos out Dana brokers out misick would do Roman now is pulled up and people are saying that he's sick. No Roman pulled up because he had. He had leukemia. Business Immune system. He's high risk by. Oh he chose to stay home But Speaking of this This topic I want to Segue real quick. Don't call was on. Espn this mom. Today with Peter Rosenberg and made a quick comment read. And I want your thoughts. Peter Rosenberg went on to say that he feels bad for drew McIntyre because there's no audience share his moment with like quote unquote. If he wins he's going to win. I don't know anymore but still to say that it doesn't matter that the wrestlers don't care about that and when it comes to Wrestlemainia they care about their own personal goals and they care about basically he said. That drew McIntyre weighing. The bell is going to affect anything if the audience is there or not do you to believe that is true I think the fans matter man I mean after hearing the Kofi pop after hearing the the Dog Ziglar pop at at Roy after mania the fans do matter though they do and drew in the belt in empty audiences just it. It's not gonna hit the same man. No it's not believe me. You wrestled watching Wrestlemainia. This year is going to be like watching a twitch stream. No I is going to be like watching a a like a fucking action movie. They're going to have they're going to do cinematic fucking special effects and shit like posted right was that drew. Mcintyre posted Iraqi for esque Iraqi four ask Video of him in the woods during the training montage that rocky against Ivan Drago and stream. He screamed Bra. Then tell you this is this is GonNa make the movie which I don't blame them for making a movie They changed the Johnson and a female to a firefly funhouse match. They made styles undertaker a buried alive match. They're trying can you? Can you really no no? It's a bone yard match or bone yard match style stolidly comment on that saying they can call bear live because of Pat Reasons either pattern raises all what you call it on cove. Ed like the fugger. You don't want to lose what I don't know what is but seems like what's the meaning. Of course we'll go on as usual but some Russell's will be staying home so we'll find out who stays who goes and maybe we might get. Co Poke Fees Goldberg Wa. Do Week or two.

Man Brady was eating steak and was talking down to them saying that They don't eat before he eats. Then Reynolds sneezed in the video. You catching up on me. Yeah Yeah Yeah Reynolds sneezed which also upset Lee. The sneezing part dates back to various stories. Told by people about Vincent man-hating people sneeze around him He I don't know why. We man like people sneezing around. You can't control it But all right Meltzer stated that some people are very upset about the shots at Vince. Mcmahon by Lee He said people within W we are upset and they found it unfair. That really took that shot. Basically making burly his gimmick that he's a visit man rip-off snow. No wrestlers are offended by that by the way. No it's actually Bruce Prichard fucking Fucking Meltzer. Should people really be fucking upset at this? I I I kind of enjoy people called a corny people called it's stupid. I thought it was actually not that bad mine either. I didn't think it was that much of a of a slap in the face others fine.

I can't doubt brother I'm done it. They're not even trying anymore. You don't even they don't even care in when you hear the stories from before they don't even care it's when you hear the stories of what they're not wrestler. As sports entertainers there. Don't say a belt say tidal. You WanNA title shot. You don't WanNa go for the bell. What's the Vince likes wrestling anymore?

Yup Dan dynamite kid was calling it and if fucked his spine up and then fucking Ben. Wa was holding partners. I'm doing it anyway. It's funny 'cause you would think you would think that you wouldn't think the spine. I think he's Fox's head up but The spine as well but he he basically doing a big belly flop on the fucking hard play on the wing and and people think Oh. You don't have to really cause he bleeds every time you fucking does. It's been why there was no match I've seen and it's not him bleeding. These gentlemen legit fucking brutal fucking tight. You gotTa take a consideration. The the all the factors was like a perfect storm of tragedy about to occur the death of Eddie the steroid steroid use and a C. T. e. all. That was a perfect storm of disaster waiting to happen. Yep He was the he was the. He's the perfect example of downfall in terms of like you said golden everything up. I mean look at it. He was on steroids clearly and the story while he was on steroids was beside to being a known factor that everyone was using back then he was a small guy and wwe never really pushed with the business the small guys so he had a he had to get built in some stolen. Some stand in some stature there. That's why he did that. the clear because The fucking chair shots I'm looking. I'm watching I'm watching the network old wrestlemanias and Shit Yo. These chair shots are fucking ridiculous. and I'm I'm hearing the stories about it and they're saying Yeah No. It's not even like a light chair like you just have to like tense up and and take it right now. I know why they don't do it. No more holy crap that and then a lot of stress from home seems like him in him and dance. You were fighting a lot right so it was. It was a recipe for destruction. Wh what are your thoughts about? What are you talking about? The what do you think what are you? What do you think about the whole Correlation Eddie because I think the number one reason why. He went over the edge with painkillers and steroids. I think Eddie that killed him original. He's crying every fucking day. It was there already but it was also think to to to have to deal with. Eddie's deft away it happened how it happened Basically knowing that he and Eddie was possibly sharing the same kind of lifestyle and that maybe kind of knowing that your time will be coming soon. Right so Eddie. Went through which you know. Everyone thought Eddie relapsed. He didn't he just He's heartless done anything else. I looked that she goes. Yeah because Charles said it him. Eddie and Chris with The travel partners the JIM partners. They'd probably be the same methods. And then Chris Will pro-kremlin looked at it and he. I some next to see if you've seen the transformation of the two from WCW to wwe they fucking swollen up really really quickly I it it it was. A transformation was many so eddie coming looking like this and then when he came back after his suspension it was like damn what the fuck yet they used up. Boy Do Well you know like I said before the whole Daniel Bride Ramos Stereo and basically been want. Eddie Gimmick you know th they wouldn't put it wouldn't push any guy oversee guy under six feet so you got me too early. What I'm saying like any guy would big muscles so you know venture like big sweaty men big sweaty men bits. It's just I. It's just a sad sad story of no because you didn't WanNa meet been Wa- seem like a sympathetic guy there in during this this whole This whole Angle of of what became his his his tornado of a fucking of misfortunes and Downward slope to to a demonic fucking mental state with the Bible and you didn't want to really make him into a sympathetic story but you had to think about the shit that he had to go through to fucking make himself a top Tier Guy To to fight through the the the loss of having his best friend gone although at the end of the day. You say fuck. This guy's a murderer fucking took his wife and his child and and put them out. Well I another thing. I didn't know your documentary. This motherfucker had the dead bodies in the health for two days before he kills himself that I knew I knew that data I knew what the hell did. He constantly been doing in house or two days when he bought his family body. Were rotting to the core. That's something that that's that's the thing that troubles me because die goes to tell you the metal the mindset that he was at he was already in a deep dark the she was already gone and then they said that the next the next morning that's when he took out his son and after he killed a wife the next one is when he took out the sun and Dan do. They even looked on his computer and they went and found. That ain't no that. He looked up on computer ways to die ways to ask the history of computer. Yeah they looked on that and I can only imagine I I I I. You can't probably can't even imagine what he had in those bibles in the in the diary that he had it and they will say news most deepest and darkest fucking disturbing things that you could. You could probably read and it's it's it's a sad is really really sad and it's true that so many people were affected by it but the two people in the middle of this couldn't even connect with each other for thirteen years. No not at all and then thank you Jericho which you know jerk was in our finals. And I you know I had a little negatively about that but let me tell you when I tell you Chris. Jericho was probably like. I've seen all on shoe like the nicest bucking guy outside the ring and the guy who really cares. I'll tell you it's in Jericho went. He made sure he invited book. David End An NC sister. I forgot her name story Who A. W. to reconnect which They didn't they couldn't even they weren't even talking for that long. And you could even see in the documentary. Where when David was speaking. He was crying and Chris. Jericho Chris Chris had come on come on Cameron told him. And say it's okay it's a Very big he looks eerily like his fall. This crazy yes he does. He looks he looks very much like his father and the fact that he's training now to become a wrestler and he walked the same in the same easily. Become exactly Chris doesn't he? He needs to stay away from that. Shit Save Yes yes. He does same thing. He said he wants a theme song. I'm like you know then you do Dan being you want to stay away from that as possible Just like you know 'cause I'm not GONNA lie for a couple years my stance was you know. I think what's triple h comes then was gonna come in the hall of fame and it's GonNa be something special but it's going to be the small adding after watching this. That's not happening. I did not know that he was never two days. I didn't know that I didn't know all the details. And and just hearing hearing the information that we received especially you know not just with Eddie death. Because I didn't know about this year with travel I thought he found him dead. He was still alive which I didn't know that. Yeah especially me get chills. But the worst part was they showed pictures of the legit house in that fucking documentary. Holy Shit they want a picture of the fucking the bottle of wine or wherever he was drinking in the gym with with the with the weights on the fucking With the weights and everything getting children talking entire fucking thing then. It was crazy. I never thought I didn't think GonNa go that details like but like Derek said it needs to be done. It was hard to do. Jesse was one of the hardest things he had to do. It had to be done at it opened. A lot of is definitely open. Mind and not to those guys who've been watching it since season one. I love the fact that now. Everybody's jumped on it and era there watching. Yeah those guys they they shoot it while they go into real depth in detail and they do their research looking up as much as they can about. These stories is Keleaf role for all one. Gene people don't understand that's Shit fucked up a Lotta dues careers man that Shit. That's fucked up a Lotta guys pushes you know and this is what I'm telling you. You hear a lot of these stories and you hear a lot of the the the antics that goes on with with Vance and all this stuff and it just I tell you it makes me say I can't anymore. This guy has to just go. He has to go away he really Lisa. Just retire on the. Xfl think he he. He thinks he has. He still thinks he got the golden touch. It's like no about this close you're not relevant and when you start hearing he started and then when when with the whole when Chris Pass and the only I mean when when when he passed but when the whole thing happened and they buried Nancy in a buried Daniels any recent? Jr You had send him to be the sacrificial lamb. What a fucking bag if Jr. I'd be pissed I really like. I like Vince. Sent someone else and then. Jr got the fucking lamb bashing he told the fucking leave. I they really venture and the worst part for me was not the wwe Jericho Chabot and like the the small group even tried to aid David and the rest of family. He's W W didn't call at all. I mean I get in some way but like a diva was a key. A little small killed that time. Who just lost his mom and dad you would think they wouldn't put the blame on him and Vincent do something to help him. But nope Damn said that. No one even tried helping Madonna. W We and then they say. Jr funeral out that good job. Then what a real classy move. Yeah that's I think that's fucked up shit. I very fortunate very unfortunate fucking story and it's like I say it's now people like they're talking about. Oh he should be in the hall of fame get the fuck out hell. No no no way. He committed Yeah no he. There's no way that's happened. I I I was like. Oh okay maybe we'll maybe put no now crazy please. So what else do we watch wrestling Well we watched a lot of recaps. But I'm not around rewind the WRESTLEMANIAS on launch snack down. But I'm not going to be talking about those. I've been talking about the new products we've been we got this week. Which was You Kevin Nolan's came out Just him in. Rawlins had a quick Promo Roger admiring the performance center I also related but You know they built up on the performance center He said that He wins at mania and made the car last year. You know just basic stuff going up the matter. You sign for Owens because I. I'm really not a good match but I but not now and not not the way it is not the way it is now Which by the way did you see? Did you see what possibly Wbz GonNa do positive with the with the fans that killed? I'll kill them because I think he's so fucking annoying. You Know Damn Right. They'RE GONNA put. Some of them are very much on that stream. I like. They're they're gonNA put the. I can't see the person's name but you know exactly what I'm talking about exactly. Yes no no no. No they won't they won't they're not a fan of it so they won't put that out double the Golden CEO terrible idea. Terrible trying to keep it. I remember I think. I think we started goofing. They do it in. There actually might do it on my own. No if that's the case I'm GonNa fucking get the streaming shit done so I'm going to get on and put a picture of like some trouble tablets. Promoted I slash is a sign up for it so I just drink. Coronas Wallace on And also on raw they Pull he cut a promo about drew. didn't nothing crazy to say how he's GonNa beat drew up about a played leads nurses senior versus twenty fifteen. Not going to go over that Andrade Angel Guards Feed and Ricocheting Cedric Alexander To face the street property WRESTLEMAINIA BUT IT TURNS OUT. Andrade actually hurt so there will be a replacement for that match. I'm assuming it's going to be the club but take you don't know Streep Roberts defeated Shane. Doran and Brennan vink which I was happy to see seeing Thorn No Brennan drink is but Alex. Shane Thorne I I do. But it was just a quick tuna match with their for Wrestlemainia Chenab interview. And it's terrible I had to grab a mic. It'll but when he wants to hear basically the interview Promo work. She's all right I you know he's I just I just don't think she's on the Mike at all I don't know hopefully annoys me. She has no. Oh Jeez say much shouldn't need to say much. She should say much this whole interview. Sonata. It should be. It should have been more shooting the hip not an interview. But you know Becky respond by sneaking on the smashing her with share Not exactly that match Out Sir Leon Roth Our Man I think knows Leon Rough. Oh yeah he does. I think I'll I wonder he's he. He knows him growing independent wrestling come organization so cool also long raw we had Oh we had ag south challenging undertaker to a bone yard match gear which we pretty much covered it. Send A D. You can't say buried alive or anything like the bird to the circumstances. Yeah something is because it was going on. So that's why Y- probably South undertaker's mystique is the and the. It factor is gone says. Let me show some cool runs his life. I love the fact. They brought the fucking lion video that hinder Michelle Pool with the Tigers. Or some shit like that Fucking hilarious He feels like it's his duty to bring the undertaker back with the match types that only the de commando which was a bone. Your match very alive. You know what you know. It's the same kind of match I love it a lot And I really want bad entertainment. Come out I don't see the dead man coming up at Wrestlemainia I see. I see the motorcycle coming out in that year. You owner 'cause they just made him so not the dead man anymore once. They put the video of him in Michelle Cool Tigers and a pool. I was just thinking going back. Whoop sorry this is what I focus going back to He's going back to American bad ass. What do you think yeah? He's he's he's going to do like a mixture of both or something that because now that he's more humanized it's like but he made a twitter not match-winner. I knew downhill from there. Which which is gonNA which is going to lead me to when we talk about all elite because the the the hypocrisy that goes on with certain people but got about. He doesn't watch. Jim cornets reaction to that. You So Yeah It just Boehner matches announced and finally we had randy Orton accepting edges challenge or Cut a good promo he. I'm a fan of the Adam. Copeland is a mock for edge shit. I don't know what that was about But the match And I was watching the. I watched the entire documentary last night. Do My homework and story about that real quick before we continue Getting the documentary. That was right after ED retired right. He was getting interviewed and he was saying he allows me to retire next year anyway. Happy Retired I'm now in the Wilderness. Like I moved out I was going to retire anyway. Always Bullshit and I'm sitting there going. You're acting like you're happy retired. I get you want that positive outlook but you know damn well actually with eating you. Alive which Documentary it was funny 'cause He said stone cold had the same problem with the next several fusion. Neck surgery right and Stone cold dead. She was like my advice to you is don't go into a bulletin pry. He was a go. Find something to do. 'cause I don't know if you noticed. But when some retired he went down to his ranch in Texas for like three five months and didn't speak to anyone now. He just disconnected himself. Yeah he just kept on everyone so he told me that I do that but to see that documentary edge like crying and my basically saying like I'm tired. I'm tired and all that stuff. Too now goosebumps goosebumps. It's wrong Just a couple of Promo a couple of shitty matches and the clery plays Nothing important but Quick shot did you McIntyre for that rocky four vignette he made. That was probably the best video. I was probably the best video package. Wbz's done in years but it's funny because that wasn't Wbz played you McIntyre's people. It was so perfectly shot list. Oh He's only did the whole rocky montage and his dad played as looking I'll should the old Guy Mitch Talking about A guy may cut me may also cut me. Mick and Iraq Mickey Nicky and he his dad he was like he's ready to face the be. It was fucking perfect like he had a talk with twenty other. Irish guys like Scottish fucking guys. In skirts it was fucking. It was better S. It was like game of thrones esque but shocking drew like making the best out of the situation Then we're going to be very quickly Although so Onto the next show and the over annex t rather quickly a few important things here Tethered res The seat in Austin theory are I don't know. Are you liking this whole awesome theory to Cathy but keeps losing live? I think that's what we're doing with. Listen theory here They're they're showcasing him. Getting a little little thing here trying to find out what was going to be a good A good angle for him. A good one who they gonNA yeah So Tyler Breeze Defeats Austin Theory It would be open opening match. You'll Shirai based Leah for the number one the number one contender ladder match entry and Yoshahara one is way better than yours or or as you leave which Were the first to competitor. We're supposed to fight this evening. But he'll sure I came in the last minute and one very good choice there. I didn't know who's GonNa leave the if if if your income in I I. I don't know what the fuck but okay What else happenings T- For North American title contender continues to Barrel. Triple Threat I guess we're getting veggie Covic Keith Lee and a priest next week for the North American title Tennyson Ray defeated Kate. Carter and let her match qualifier gray choice. They're only Morgan. And Danny Burch picked up a win against the new team of the one and Brendon vink. Which once again they were there again. I guess they're really pushing these guys. Well they just weren't the same area at the same time. And they were all taping together. That's my that's my What that is but we'll be looking at any birds pick up a win. They need to get up on the tech division. The Division teeny cal. They're the medicine for that Chilean undefeated who T- mile don't know how to say that extended Squash match Cameron grunge defeated a lot of matches on the next day this week. Saying fuck you a W we'll give you more tamblyn grind defeated Tony Niece and Finally Annex T we had triple h coming out and announcing that CIAMPA. Donald will be Well I I suppose triple agents have put this matchup wrestlemainia booker. Donald cut him off every time he was about a complete that thought he said this isn't about the biggest stage. This is a deep personal rival. Rivalry that just needs the bare essentials which I found that was good right. And it's basically I guess the blow off because loser leaves yet This is He's find an empty building and put a ring in it. Trying I talked with is. They're trying to find an empty building. Put Rain It. And then he touched on the address and they shop in two weeks. So that's fucking cool. Then that's like some roller shit. I would it. But the loser leaves annex t If they keep up the hostilities afterwards. They're both guardsman exte- after After that altercation we found out that killer cross is coming to and the predictions were true. The rumors were true. It seems like we'll be getting killer cross if I could see killer costs versus also chomping next. I'll be happy but we think glued to the main roster out of peace. I'M GONNA go with CIAMPA. Yeah I wanted to be chomping. Yeah yeah the name roster he's GonNa be squashed Like fucking dogs entering the rest of the small guys. So I'll going shopping there but those are Not Mad at a lot of matching a lot of content They tried they tried to go up against any. Aws Did they succeed. Do a good job this week. Noon men with new into a better job. Good job it was. I mean it was annexed. He wasn't anything crazy. Yeah but they tried this time. Actually what bill matches and last week we know matches so I guess I saw. W listen we gotta give him some entertainment. We gotTA GET DOT matches. Fuck this ship So on the Eighth W redbird very excited to talk about Roy. A rare type of boat this one. So let's go over eight w dissect this amazing show. I don't know how is it that day could able to pull off. No Fan matches and still be entertaining. Yeah yeah I think it's just the the I think it's just because it's outside. The commentary is a little more energetic wrestler to try to make some noise and they're out there. There's some there's something that that that W is definitely missing the WS taking over but the Nice store cody Rhodes and on commentary just to find out cody match with Spurs. He even said the microphone. Oh I want to go through the tunnel through so yeah. I want to go through the tunnel funny but kind of unprofessional. But Hey there this time you need to laugh right so fucking. Cody Rhodes faces Jimmy. Havoc Cody Rhodes. Picks UP THE WIN. But then the video shows up of Jake the snake Roberts. What do you think about that problem because I found it lackluster? Yeah I did like it that much Jay too much these days. Just when it's needed you could see we told you. The snake was shooting. They hit and they they did a one shot there. But Jake Jake the snake Roberts basically telling cody that he just wants one Given the chance to meet doesn't matter where there's no matter where he wants Archer to face code your meat just wants cody then goes on twitter and says that he will not be facing that. It's archer heating so prove himself and he's proud to have less archer w but he's not gonNA face he doesn't deserve it so that's our show will be debut next week against a jobber which. I love the whole thing of Orchard shopping at the bit to get cody. The Ring Heights up when the match really happens That's what you call. Wwe building right. You call building up a story. It's called that does Darby al we thought about that when I thought I loved RB Allen I like Sapien it was a it was a it was a pretty pretty good branch I like him. I just think him and Sam you got a little bit too much of the same. Gimmick it's Kinda Kinda yes dushi indefinitely Eh. That's I guess that's why they put your face because then they will have three. They should put Gioja Nella Kim. Cbs and fucking shabby the fucking. Or would you say it was It could be saving enjoyed tag team. Like why the fuck not? They're both bad. They're assholes Y Y Y Georgia Leila face when usually make these two guys heels or fuck it even put them in a statement with fucking Put them in a stable with someone else. Look with with Put them in the state but with fucking Kaido fucking yeah make something out on spears. Make them make them a three a triangle. A couple of people are Oh there's too many factions. Hello Japan you guys fucking Love New Japan. But they got like four major five major fucking factions over there. What do you take Stables state sable sell merchandise. Yeah exactly And please I want the death triangle? Shirt I listen bad ass a but gee kager defeats Chico atoms in a squash CHICAGO ADAMS CHICO VALUE. Bloated man out with the squash After he defeats Chicago Adam. Moxie comes out quickly. Hit The paradigm shift on Hager Your quickly rebound to grab Moxie for Ankara. Walk Muggsy escapes. I'm assuming we're getting Moxley and hager the next couple of weeks which Hager needs it because Neang cares not a fan of Hager's work a little little little stale but it's fun. We get a medical update on Nick Jackson from Vanguard one vanguard one spies on Nick Jackson working out in his garage The health meter is registered at sixty one percent recovered once once once the book and drone had literally scanned into Jackson gave a health fucking meter to how how how recovered he is Once Nick Nolte van drove flew away. What do you like? What are you what are you doing? What this vanguard shit the fans like it fans do Man Like it Yeah what's over? We'll we'll talk about the rest and get into the What do you think? I'll cody fucking On commentary this week. Cook was cool is a lot of references. That people might not get a little bit over. But he was showing. He knows his his wrestling history right. Fuck winter on when he's trying to call the The the the Darby Allen match. He's he he reminds him of of staying and finishing move Darby Allendale. Which if Darby Allen can lock that up better than I actually be a nice finish that definitely could be a hundred percent there I I think Darby Al and kids had great futures and we make a point with with With that match then we had funny w dynamite. This week we had. Oh Jesus completely forgot about this disaster. Okay well. It wasn't a disaster. We had a quick video with Brodie Lee. Cutting steak with Alex Rentals and John Silver on the table basically a parody until about this during wrestling rundown a parody of instruments Basically saying that no one else eats before he eats and You know Out Settles coughed release said no no he sneezed and he fucking went off on including sneeze rubber vets. 'cause Vince hate when people sneezing for him? Is that a thing with bosses. They hate when that should happen for jobs. If my boss sees yard in front of his face he sends you home. Well some people take that as a sign of disrespect right. I know like during summer can't hold a job. I do a meeting with the whole staff if the L. Hefei Yawn during the training. You send you home to some people's as soon as a form of disrespect So you know brody went off on that. And he had a match. He debuted this week on dynamite Brought me fought who probably phase Brodie Lee for was a Cutie Marshall it was not more show car March Shots debuted this week. I pull you Kinda week this week. week this week He looked on of Rusty a little bit. I don't know nothing really should have reversed edition of put. Chico atoms with him and he was talking Hager Hager. Yeah Smart Book. Ladies and Gentlemen Smart Booking Broadly did blow SUPLEXES SWING SLAM THE DISC. Larry which I guess finisher now is the parody of fucking brain wide sister. Abigail very bitter and everyone in it so Like Jesus Christ. I don't know if you've ever watched the documentary when Wcw fired him and Paul Heyman took him under his wing and like signed into EC. W Bishop Daddy bring me back home and the member because don't call her Some coast city couldn't go and pull him was like no role until you can wrestle. We're GonNa put you on the Mike and just like Air Your Grievances. Yeah every week you just bash. Wwe I thought this is GonNa do now. He's GonNa Bash. Wwe every week like some cold water crandall ladders that. I didn't know I didn't know Dan rather like this and WCW every week. He didn't bash the company. I feel like we're GonNa get in that direction with brody now But if you watched his interview Chris Jericho's very interesting guys. Go check that out Also need w this week. We had Kenya Mega Verses Semi Bavaro For the AAA championship very random. But SEMI. Lavar loss but in my opinion semi put on a type of performance. That makes you take notice. I think that send with Martin. Been The star of the show this week. What do you think I it was it was? It was a good match Entertaining Kenny had been on TV for a while as an inner ring so it was a good return for him and Sammy did showcase that he could hang in a ring. A couple of you know top to your guys a few a few problems with me. We'll just like a couple of things But you know that's just nitpicking at this point and finally we had a moment to the movie. We're all waiting for the confrontation between Matt. Hardy and Chris. Jericho comes out and he called out by hardy but vanguard comes out and Jericho basically cuts a promo on vanguard saying that he called vanguard a piece of shit. Oh Jesus Christ I cannot. We Peoria Europe with reaction. This he okay this right hold on these facts straight on this on this on this on this segment. Jericho's plans to offer hardee's spot. The inner circle of vague are one. Kale. I jerk off the draw on a plane. No place in the inner circle then Ben Garth Lou away in pitch. It came out and he teleported to the ring now before we continue read. What the Hell so hell was that? time filler and Matt Hardy responded to to that segment and he said himself. I Mad g e this deigning though it is I'm not I'm not mad at it. It's fine I thought it was funny coup but the hypocrisy because if wwe did that oh the fanbase will lose their shit wrestling fans. My God Talk Shit reacting to his on his partners even saying I usually get e w slack. But I'm not doing a here because I know damn well if this happened on raw road be butchered to a flynn. They will give it health but you know for some reason all fans or wrestling fans will give all Alita pass because it's already an anonymity. Excuse you know. There wasn't any fans and you know. That's the gimmick were but yet undertaken comes out fifty five years old the magician with the smoke and the lightening and exciting. Oh my God really another undertake a guy we get in come on. He goes away. Hardly teleport the ring and if you look closely they did that in part and you can see Chris. Jericho like not in the same direction. Previously thing is head going like clicking another direct. Yeah it was like a tick Tock Tock I can't figure out how aid w pulled that off. The background guys dogs though it wasn't filmed earlier in the day that camera trickery It was done like an hour before the show but okay and run from one spots another. That's all you gotta do. Yeah exactly less than ten minutes. Jerko and hardy exchange be words but Hardy explains his current existence. And more is what bothered did this is what bothered me. That shit also way too fucking long talk about feeler vessel. Oh my God. And it's now Damiri. The Mascot is Damascus. And Abraham Lincoln Martin Luther King or they're in the crowd right now. Oh my God I said it's done you say Martin Luther King's like more Luther King's here. He had a dream one. Listen at the time has done A. We can't do this anymore I can't did. The broken should has done for me. It's it's done when we when I happened. We were like Oh let the fuck is this. And everyone's like Oh shit is fucking funny as hell then brought it to wwe and it was like the woken harder. Okay fine now aws. I this is what we do and we bring in his back. Were the word overplayed. Yeah I D- We. We played our card a little bit too much. Now it's over and people and people are saying that on. Wwe Shit because they didn't give party creative people are telling me and go. Hey listen you thank you? I don't have the Coriolis and gentlemen Now think to myself. Maybe W was right now. Giving fucking back that much creative because I don't know if it's entertaining. They believe but it only keep pulling a trigger nets. Shit Hell No. It's also a w do you. Do you remember what you said? Your sport like field wrestling. Remember what you said your sport you're going to be a sports like feel Yeah remember to is you and your nothing you are you are you. Aren't that at all So hardy turned down. Jericho's offer The funniest part of the night for me was hardy knocked down. Jericho with a one punch To sell the power of Damascus. Then Jerko had magic up his sleeve. I forgot what you said. God Damn Is like what the Fuck Jerko say you remember? Jericho said he was like. He's his own. He made fucking Sammy. Guevara appear some show. The he made a spell or some shit like that Well my I have to find a kid now fucking. He's had some Luke Shit. I ride that. He was like he was like I got my act or something like that. You'RE GONNA kick your ASS. And we'll borrow ambushed hardy down. They've already controlled and then hardy. Of course doing the PYRO. Fire magical heads as once again. Eight WFANFM lovey. But if undertaken arcane did and it was like Oh God real I I missed Kane. Did that should tell you the story about that right. We came to this shit. I was at Smackdown kids and I was more up the stairs with large popcorn. And I got scared so much in the fucking fire. Because I didn't see it coming up on my top four. I was tight so That was during the make thirteenth shit. Pretty sure Hardy of course controlling the MED on the entrance ramp to all burn Jerry. Going with our Lenovo all right. Close the Shit Up. Magic head. Finally on smackdown Came out attacked everyone in the in the in the match billion Sasha. They're not going to be separate. But we all know.

Now that she's pulled from wrestlemainia due to wanting to be there and from travel issues AAA AAA. She gives a backstage interview after really God After they replay trip believable rains which makes no sense because this matches has been officially cancelled. I don't know why they went with it.

What do you think I dig out? They got to pump it up as much as they can because people are already not sold on his match. But what can you do this funny I? I know it's funny. I thought it worked and if this is their attempt of this is I think this is perfect. If you don't have an audience and you really want the Mystique of the fiend and undertaker as guys to be alive with this the best way to do is put them in Gimmick matches whether outside with no audience anyway so you put them in a firefight funhouse matching. There's no audience anyway. So you might as well make it a gimmick match where you know there's no fucking audience and same thing with the very live matches in my opinion i. It's a great way of of them trying to make last minute changes to make it work and I can't be mad at all. I just hope it's better than the fucking fucking. That rain randy had fucking pointed horns place wherever fucking shows call. I forgot what that was called and finally on smackdown Russo's fee The new day contest after the Miz and Morrison after Morrison interfered and they announced at Wrestlemainia. It'll be the new day.

No doubt will be crazy. I somebody like it'd be like Chat Roulette and somebody's dicky's yet from jerking their people But besides smackdown My wrestlemainia day challenges still going on. Today I watched Wrestlemainia to Me Twenty O. Eilly WRESTLEMAINIA twenty-five today. Oh Nice Nice. Yeah that's the Media Day challenges still going on now. I realize one thing older wrestlemanias Suck Dick Gephardt. That's all I've watched interesting this week. Buddy you don't have melted gave fucking Hulk Hogan and Andre the giant wrestlemainia three minus four stars. Bet HE CHANGED MINUS THREE. And Yeah it was something. It was something but you know back then. That was considered good. Now it's Considered Trash Shit watching wrestling ladies and gentlemen and when we return our our in depth conversation with the man himself Mr Extravaganza yes Larry Legend himself. He stops by and believe me. You don't WanNa miss this conversation. It's probably in the upper top tiers of the best conversations. We had on this on this show I was I. I love this dude. This guy was so open and very honest and his stories about wrestling and his and his upbringing and also if he goes full details about his his his his moment in the spotlight when he was on a prices right. He wasn't a person. I like to watch the video. So guys don't go anywhere. Stick around we will return with the dow down the greatness SNL cast shake me a case. Lay Her schick landscape. Which of you can't wait for over sixty two movie credits to translate down greatness. Snow shake me only Invalidity color site. We had to get a corona virus to get you on our show. Finally I know manage times are tough right now. So why not? I'll take a gift and a curse though hit edge. You're saying thank you sir. My Pleasure Dick sent me a message and after we did that little Promo video violence and suffering that. Show that got. postponed You know there's nothing that I really would say no to him for because we were all let down by that. Was it that though? The whole the the way that he came up with the idea of just doing a South Park. Look and everything. It's so you guys it connects with what you guys are. You know what it is. It's so it's so pro wrestling because there's not I would say that there's not one person in the crowd at a pro wrestling show. That's not a pretty big fan of South Park so the fact that nobody had done that type of kind of crossover up into this point. It's just a testament to like how brilliant Isaac really is these concepts and things and he just asked me to do like a really quick voiceover. He gave me all of the lines to say. And you know I don't really know all that stuff technically like how to cut things up. Editing layer sounds and you know lower thirds that's not really my my thing but damned if he didn't do a great job on that. It's just a shame that that showed not going to go off was postponed until may hopefully we'll be able to do it in. May It was awesome. Because of how basically showed you guys and proper elevate you going down a waterslide or something sounds like you. You're out of the amusement park right now. Oh no no. No that's That's Super Smash Brothers for the switch in the background. You know Quarantined you know. Who Do you play? I play Kirby Aww Shit read you pay to the I do play as Kirby as well I only I only play as Kirby but I play bowser and Yoshi anybody who had the down d. that's like You know a drop down like Anvil type thing. I liked them. But I like Kirby the best because he can switch it up he can start to drop down as the envel- and then pull off the sword. Let's switch it up. So if the person like blocks or or tries to dodge you can still get him with two blocks from that soared so I like him better than Yoshi and Bowser but anybody. Who Does that like down smash there but I like those characters long objects got you with with long juicy object. I get what you're saying and then there's nothing wrong with that depending on depending what scenario you. Hey Twenty twenty. We're all about the die cut. Now that's fine. What's your take about this do you? Are you like me that? You're you're thinking that this is just a fluid a WWe logo? Is there. Something really serious about this was going on. Well I'll tell you this much. I'm not into conspiracy theories even though I often go down that rabbit hole on Youtube. You know late at night when you just have nothing to do and see all of those things but What a what. A convenience smokescreen to kind of like killed and for a few mania is now people have been talking about how you know. Oh next year. Ww JUST GONNA go into whatever the talent is whether it be New Orleans or Tampa whatever and just like by it out like make sure that they are the only show that can be in. You know a certain amount of space and that might be the case with Tampa because I know a lot of the shows were in your city and you know I'm the outskirts. Maybe not on the grounds of where mania is but when it the hell of a coup if they did like just or someone orchestrated just the for the to justify the means of like shutting the indies out completely like stopping them from business. You know it's funny that you said that because I would love to believe that. Mcmahon had that connections and power to just close everybody out and still be able to function what was going on. Yeah well I mean He. He's had his. He's had his tactics throughout the years of how can kind of like crush people and sort of close the door You know buying up you know. Hello did you lose me ask you lost me? And I'm so sad because I thought we were bonding here. Larry we we had. I thought we were too. I'm not actually playing mashed playing in the background but I didn't even realize I said I was just talking away to no one just like I had a lot to say. So where did I leave? Where did I leave off? When did you did you lose me on how we were just talking about the whole Being better than Kirby no we were talking about your thoughts about how this this pandemic is is affecting your livelihood and wrestling in whole especially in the South Park. Promo is a prime example. That's like one of the best promos that I've ever been a part of and you know right when we were ready to release that on Monday night when everything really you know. Got Serious in some regards so you know. I was very appreciative. That is still promo so people can take a look at it as hard work but Yeah it's IT'S. It's really putting a damper on a lot of people financially and also our spirits. You know because you know a lot of us live for this you know live for this so thank God for people like match Fremont doing each show and you know. Ccw's doing your show tomorrow night Saturday night special and just the people that are riding content during this time of like you know you know the unknown like what's going to happen with all of us. How is it that you're going to be dealing with You do you have a an outside a career or funding or a way to get money. You have an outside of this. Yeah I work at a restaurant or at a restaurant. I have a couple of different roles at a restaurant here in Baltimore and restaurant. Gigs are gigs for people. Like me because you can just kind of say. Hey I need the time off. I need this time off and the restaurant basically as well as long as you get the days that you can give us. You can have whatever days off you want. Just basically tell us which days off you want for your gigs. Then we'll give it to you and so can say for like almost two years now. I've never really run into kind of a problem where it's like at work. You know because I just might dates well in advance and I tell them that and you know I can support myself doing the announcing emceeing hosting and also in a restaurant and of course the restaurants closed now but then again all my gigs have been postponed or cancelled two. So I've got a lot of free time for a Lotta smashing. Yeah that's that's that's definitely terrible and I'm sitting there going. I can imagine Larry at rest are going. We have two tables for free. Anybody coming up right now on. It's not that type of restaurant at all with restaurant. I probably would have a lot more fun but these dogs. We have no no no no. It's a matter of fact. I'll tell you if you if you were to call the restaurant that I work that you could to hear me hosting because you know I'm the I'm the voice mail you know. So if anyone calls reservations or anything like that Big at the big a very similar. Hi there that I started with that That South Park. Promo call that restaurant. So you know. That's one of the things I do. I host and I- Barista deliver deliver things to the other restaurants around there but it's definitely not a place that's tailored made for the type of hype that I bring to show. I would hate to hear that. Larry's like doing a voicemail or the The the entrees for for nine is I will everyone to say that Our our specials for tonight is soup. Does your you'd have to hear that. From Larry I want to hear the Larry. Well well you know what? It's interesting that you say that because in addition to working at the restaurant I don't think he's like voiceovers. I do like Isaac asking me to do the voice over South Park. That's not the only you know. Voice overs were just from the comfort of my home. I record something I do. These voiceovers that are these Like MMA kickboxing recap of like Like fights that have happened and Whatever I let anyone here the voiceovers they are like some of the like you sound like an eighth grade science teacher talking about like you know like it's just not it's not me you know. It's not the me that you know his legendary. It's like almost like even WanNa put my stamp on that because I'm not really giving it my all but that's one of the interesting things that I always bring up in. My career is like a lot of the times for the anime and Fox and things I don't have to give half as much of the character and inflection and the pizzazz and the fucking showmanship that I have to give for pro wrestling show. Because you know EMANATE FANS. The kid talks not really there for that. They just want the red quarter. Who's in the Blue Quarter? Okay let's see these guys kill each other you know in wrestling. You know it's like you want to you. Know introduce from the purified waters of Lake Minnetonka with sixty nine sexy mega tones. You know our presidential you know. All all of that stuff comes with wrestling and a lot of the times You know I'm spent after those those things. But if you ever get a chance to listen to any of my W K A ringside roundup. The W K A ringside ground OPS. Tweet them I put them on Youtube and everything. But you'll hear like me kind of like talking like an instruction manual it. Too much like too much of that legendary. Stay on anything just like your seatbelts. In the Cup holders are onto your ride. It'd be a long Larry Legend ride. Oh Yeah Hell Yeah. We'll go through a lot of things I do. A Lotta things like too much was the young Larry Legend in fifth grade or in kindergarten. Letting everybody know this is Larry and I'm letting you guys know that we're about to get snacks not right now. Today we have peanut butter and Jelly. Or She's in crackers. Whatever you wish you hit the nail on the head. I'M NOT GONNA I'm not gonNA say that I have always been presentational but I've kind of always been really proud of my voice like always been really super proud of the way that my voice sounds and like like like my schoolmates of things and people that I'd lived around. I always like really admire way that I sounded so I never really h-hit that or tried to sound any other way than the way that I sound right now and that's often with no inside voice so I got a lot of trouble in growing up at school because like I would just be talking too loud or like you know announcing things like you know if someone on connect for like it was like you know if the fire alarm wrong because you know like just being too boisterous Larry going. Oh and it's like we're not. We're not playing being tonight. Larry one hundred percent. Tonight's we're playing a pain in the ass in the household. When did he know that? Your Voice was very verbose it was known. You know. 'cause I'm I mean I'm eighty so like I was right at the height and infancy of Intendo so like a lot of the Times. I was really just like intendo it up and then if I wasn't doing that I was trying to convince my big You know the guys that looked at my neighbor to like. Let's do like backyard wrestling with like some cardboard in the backyard. If I wasn't playing video games I was like you know trying to like create a wrestling show in the backyard rudimentary. 'cause we're talking like nine and stuff like that so But I was never a handful around the house. I was ever getting into mischief around the house because like I said like I'm I was born in eighty one starting to really hit like to be a thing when I was in first grade and eighty six So by you know I got that in the end. It was just like every week. Do Good in school will get a new game you know. Don't don't act out too much. Get a new game And then like I said if it wasn't that it was like Saturday trying to convince my you know the guys join neighborhood. Hey let's not like bike. Let's not play football. Let's not play ball. Let's let's do wrestling. I'M GONNA BE HACKSAW JIM Duggan. You'd like to carry the word that's what it was like the early early. You know you know that's my thought it to like you don't really like soft delight real hard like big boss. Four nights a big long lumber good Larry other words quarantine shoe what are we doing? The Gaming Side Smash Bros obviously. You'RE A big Nintendo Guy. But besides that or we played anything else. You know what I played so caliber to yesterday. So can choose my all time favorite fighting game of all time not the whole caliber series specifically so caliber to the game by just played that the other day. And you know what I was. I need to finish Luigi Mansion for the Gamecube too because I bought my Godson Luigi expansion two for the Nintendo ds or Nintendo to Diaz. And I said when you get done this I'm going to be done the first one and then linearly. I WanNa play yours and he told me this years ago. Obviously we're talking and he was like yeah. Sure I never got around it because I don't have time to be like gaming as much anymore but I wanna finish Luigi Mansion and then I also got on rampage. I don't know that game rampage may have rampage. That is just the Canada rampage. Which one do you like to use? Probably lizzy yeah. I think I think of her as a lesbian. I think that's kind of a little joke that they were tried to like the classic Georgian. Ralph George because you know he's burly and you know he has a little bit of. Yeah Okay Yeah I get it but I'll tell you also that I mentioned that I also like because In King Kong vs Godzilla which was kind of like a kind of like a wrestling tape. You know obviously there was a lot of Japanese storytelling in it with what we go to the city and whatever else they that they were trying to stop space expert matching. But you know it was all about King Kong Dila. Why would the big Guy Villafane and I really didn't like King Karma that much so I was like when I was younger? I had that tape. Kim Congress has got Dylan Enzyme. Vigorously like King Kong. Like beat scout diller into the ocean. And then Godzilla just doesn't come up anymore so it's kind of like. Did he kill it? He did he retreat. Like what happened here but you Kinda Call King Kong the winner because kids music played at the end and he walks up the up the ramp way it stop it. You'd ever seek out Dylan again so I didn't like that ending so I think that's another reason. I probably like because I was a big Guy Mark Roe and what was the. What was the first thing that you fell in love with? I wrestling video games rustling wrestling. Definitely I mean it just was like really funny to me like when I was when I was younger. I'll never forget the first thing I saw wrestling. I wish someone could find this clip from it was like these two guys that looked like Kinda like the Legion of doom. Or maybe the powers of pain and the announcer. Who was like Gino? Colin type guy asks them a question and as soon as he put the microphone in the guy's face firm to answer the the the wrestler bit the microphone the top of the bike report off. He just lives like he just like took a huge bite out of bitter ripped it off with heat and when I was a kid I literally blacked out laughing at the fact that something like that. It just happened on my screen and I thought it was the funniest thing I'd ever seen so just like how anything can happen. Wrestling edge could come back like a lot of the times like I'll be. Why don't you like pro sports like football and I'll be like damn if only might get cut out just start coach at Chicago? 'cause all this shit you know for sure but I would love it if like you know you know. The by dolphins are doing really bad shula cubs without audience buckets. Cooter come out one time. And he's like really but what's what's he was in quickness it that you did you have anticipate that you wanted to be a wrestler or did you because for me. I loved wrestling. My uncle was a wrestler. And my whole thought. Process like yeah. I'm not GONNA do that. I take him bombs as much as I love. Wrestling was any thoughts of you possibly being arrested. Well I mentioned you know I was always trying to get my friend and still like play backyard wrestling with me now again. I'm talking like I was like eleven twelve so we're talking like ninety one ninety two like so like this wasn't like anything more than like let's watch. Wwf Superstars and then let's go do that match that we just saw between ten and the men on a mission and the quebecers like do that in the yard But like yeah I was always really like wrestling with like the sport that I liked Just grappling at this. I thought maybe grappling Ino in the ring in with other other men could be very sporting. It could be something like that. It wasn't something really gravitating to or I mean. Here's the thing I'm not GonNa lie now that I'm thirty years old. I can look back on things. I think that probably wanted to read that. I wanted to wrestle. A lot was also to like Russell. You know like you know because that can sometimes lead to other things. I've learned as I've learned getting older and I'm sure that I'm sure there are a lot of my friends that I grew up with. Some of which aren't even here anymore. Unfortunately but a lot of my friends would like to hear that but a lot of the times I think in the back of my mind. I wonder if like now that I am the way that I am. If any of those guys were like Damn. That's the way that he always wanted to wrestle. Missile all right like sort of some sort of compromising position probably do you know face to me. But that that was at the time the furthest thing from my mind. I really just want to replicate as close as to I could like Shawn michaels super kick and Bam Bam bigelow tech but off the top rope and like you know this was before we were even recording things so it was all just in in good clean fun but you know now that I can look back on it. Who knows I probably was selling some sort of weird fantasy In bike like grappling. Because a lot of times when we did those those mashes they weren't like body slam suplex like just like I'm going to grab you would like stopped by foot off the ground and punch you would like to handle you know like because he's doing together we're doing like it. Did you know so Larry? Let me ask When to be very tongue in cheek very vague as we when. When did you know that you wanted to wrestle with men? Well you know something. I'll call you. I went to Catholic school. I eighth grade so big. No no you know that kind of talk about type of like you know the feelings that maybe I was experiencing and maybe questioning so that was not anything that I could ever really talked to the priest out or anything or because I wasn't even Catholic. My mom just sent me to Catholic school because it was kind of one of the best education should get Baltimore about like public school to speak down on my city but at the time it was like. Oh you want your kid to get a good education cinema Catholic school. He'll wear uniform. And you know pray the Rosary and just be good clearly. Not The case you know with a lot of those people that I went to school with myself included. I guess you could say but You know it wasn't until I went to high school once I went to high school and when I started to like be around Jewish people an ATS people and like Muslim peop- in other Annette curse right Catholic school. It was like a nice little sandbox of nothing. But it was kind of like if you don't do it this way you're GonNa go to hell. You know so wasn't until I went to high school that I kind of started to meet other people that maybe were curious the way that I was also I was. I was in an environment where that would be like kind of like not like your but we're like. Oh you're that that's cool. No that's that's kind of really what I was like okay. I think that this is the way from me. I'M GONNA wait. It's interview going. Are we talking about wrestling here? We're talking about the light ties. Larry legend a whole tablet. We Open Up. Everything goes beyond wrestling because at the end of the day the real miss that happens with this show and with the people that we interview is not about the cut and dry. So how is it that you became an announcer? How we want we want people to hear the real you. If you're not open to talk about it that's fine. We getting no no no no no no no. It's not just that like again like you said like typically people are like so. How did you become an announcer you? So we're going on but I think you probably don't remember was you always have your everywhere but I've bumper to bumper too many times and I've always told you I want a conversation with you. Not Larry Legend to ring announcer. I want you and this is what we're just enjoying right now. Because at the end of the day you know this is what we does the legacy that we live with and yeah when the mice go off and the oldest whatever the case may be and. I don't WanNa have to have. This whole process is low because of what the society is going on right now. It's like no. We've always wanted to hear the wrestlers the announcers the manager is the promoters and I wanted Larry Legend to be a guy. That's always been the guy who's pulled back on on his shit. This is what I wanted to have for us here and one big thing for me that I need to access. If you don't mind no hot dogs Burgers what's yours? How burgers. What's your favorite? Yeah you want to know you're talking to lower you remember Sir right now. Okay remember Larry. I like American. Mercer is a Burger Guy not achieved not a cheeseburger guy but definitely a burger guy. I like I like on Nice pair of Bun. Okay now Larry Larry Larry Legend okay. The emcee and host of many like various orting events around the country loves a nice juicy plump. Hot Dog and I have a lot of fun letting people know that I enjoyed that both of all but they both have fun. They both have different burgers around burgers are well. I'm I'm saying like it's Kinda like you asking me if I'm an ass man. I've got a like that. There's a wise like a definitely about a pair of on a pair of fun. Not just like the hot dog along the base circular. What's that type of thing out there too? I love you I swear in love you. You fucking compensation had in my life. This is awesome. You fucking amazing. When did you know that did you? Did you take Theater courses in school. Because I'm a guy I if you can't tell I've been very very prolific. What do I speak did you? D- absolutely yeah. I was so although I was in Catholic school. And you know you asked me earlier if I were like as Rhumba Grim bunks around the house. I was not but I wasn't school and I got into a lot of trouble in school and I went to a couple of different psychiatrist. Actually and one of the psychiatrists said to my mom You know like with Boisterous as he ended. And it's presentational at the as maybe you should think about getting him involved in like theater where he's gotta learn lines and like say like do all this like it's like he gets a show like he gets his own show where people are paying to see him and you know my mom with like well. He's really terror. So we tried it and I just took to it. Naturally I went to a Oldest African American theater in the country. It's called the arena players. It's in Baltimore and they have exactly what that is. Yeah Yeah they ever theater program and Shortly after my lost my grandmother was started at the sixth grade so it must have been around like eleven twelve My mom got involved in local community theater and that is what actually rescued me from. Catholic school because In Sixth Grade I was in Catholic school. I sold a lot to say but you know really didn't know you know didn't have voice kind because I didn't know who I was but by doing the community theater liking it being into the costumes learning lines and all of that. That's what led me to go to a performing arts high school and that's Kinda got me out of Catholic school because I was going to go to a Catholic school and if I went you wouldn't be talking to me right now. Probably be the coach of a football team or something with a wife. Three kids or something. Because you know that's just you know the blend blend into your environment. I had done a lot of blending first to eighth grade and Catholic school with. Luckily I got to high school where it was like. No you don't have to be back. Could be this or it could be or you can be this. You know like so we know for me I was. I was since early age. I gravitated being the I guess you say the spotlight of Bradley the household and I needed my mic suppression. I had to get it out somewhere. Another Day gave it to me that way and in high school was my my escape because I was able to do a lot of things that I'd never was able to do in my everyday life. I did plays whatever the case We. What was it that you realize that? I'm not GonNa hit the ring to be a wrestler. I couldn't I could take the talent or the education that I got from school to forbid a ring announcer or commentator something later when we realize that so that happened. That happened in college and it happened because I couldn't afford to go back. I was Undergrad. White you Studying Drama Department Tisch School of the arts Classic Ninety Nine. You know that's what I I moved to. New York was in ninety nine but It was there that kind of like broke it down to all of us and they were like. Hey guys you may have come to school to be the next ends on Washington when the next Lawrence led We want to let you know that they teach you to lease drowsy. Bird way of of of of acting. They give you that. No No. It's funny. I did Stella Adler Oh trying to stop this my third. They're Strauss Adler and when I went in for me. They wanted me to do Strasbourg and I was like. Yeah that doesn't fit for me. I don't like this well. The thing about it is is you learned that their oil from one school of thought they all come from one from one school of thought and they're just branches to kind of create the most trump performance You know but no I I did Adler and like okay. So this is what I mean by like they opened my eyes and like Kinda. Let me know that what I thought it was gonna be wasn't really what it was gonna be so first year. Undergrad going dark school one of my first classes ballet and like I'm looking around looking. Listen I'm looking around at all the rest of the actors like guys and girls and I'm like guys. They're saying no shakespeare that he does that. This is something that I don't I have. What are we doing like? And we didn't know it at the time but with Adler with teaching us like how to see through other parts of her performance by like so like right. Now you know you maybe want to just be an actor but maybe what you're really what really is. Your passion is the move blocking like how to move around the state or doing a character with like a wimp or something like that. It's like living that reality or in some cases like me. Maybe the part of packing that really moves you. Is the voice like doing different voices in like kind of being a narrator of play as opposed to like the the star actor of it like you know so you know they really just said like guys. Don't don't sell yourself short because there may be something that you have. It's truly your passion that you haven't found yet and it's funny because people always say that just because you're not in the front lights of the stage. It's it's doesn't mean that you're not the better player behind the lights. You know what I'm saying and people always lose themselves thinking that you need to be on the front the front lights of everything but you know that is that we level things. We're leveling a level type of people so like one person may aspire to be you know because he's on the poster against Brockway Russell Beatty. That's their dream. But like there's another guy that's really critical to Roman reigns even doing anything that guy's name as she ever Johnston the guy who's like made all of that like us it over the years that we listened to on this think. That's it but you know what I like you. You don't have tried to say whatever that I know is of your favorite song. That wrestler came out to that Major. Jump up on your feet and start screaming before the rest of the you've been bathed one step out onto the stage screaming and going crazy. I heard the glass shatter that guy to me. It's like a legend. He's bigger than alleged. He's an icon and most people would never even know what he looked. Like if you walked right up to anybody He's one of the you know the magicians behind the theme. That's what I call them. And that's kind of like you know I I would say in the same wicked Gino for landing or want to check it out of the wrestling Realm like Dick Clark like think about how much of a Master Clark was it. Bob Barker like all these hosts that could effortlessly just host things keep you engaged and use their voice to kind of make you believe so yeah So it was. When I went to when I went to college I turned out. They were like Larry. What you love is rustling in the part of it you love the most is the announcer or the backseat interviewer. Boy Out this fucking school and go do your wrestling thing. And I didn't leave. I dropped out 'cause I couldn't afford it anymore by a suit as I moved out to Baltimore With the intention of saving my money to go back to Nyu I like sound wrestling school You know and it just doing my diet of five at the local mall. I found a wrestling school at just. You know told them who I was and when I wanted to do and how maybe they could help me how they can help me to achieve my goals and my dreams and the rest is history. I went and I did move back to New York but I never went back to school And I think the education that I got 'em. Cw Bone breakers training academy is way more worthy gonNA degree from nyu. You can just tell people you went to. Nyu never ask you to produce the degree to show that you went there will be like. Oh Wow that's nyu we yeah. You can just say it. I've done it before. I've said that I've gotten nyu and it's changed. People's perception of these fuckers don't even know if I'm telling the truth you know but I could say like I went to bone breakers pro wrestling training academy and people will be like why you know again the leveling like oh well an ivy league. Education is way more than you know. Rinky-dink Jim with a ring. Set up in it. You know with axl rotten. You know a god rest his soul drug drug addict. You know trainer but I wouldn't get those those lessons up for the world just as much as I wouldn't get the lessons that I learned at nyu or carbon for the world either. So Larry gotta ask number one moment or favorite maximum even now so far you you've been everywhere in the indie scene. There's gotta be a moment that we will always hold you for the rest of your career. Honestly we're sitting on this. This fucking compensation is awesome. This is going to be probably top three for us. What what is your number one ring announcing moment of of all time. Not Someone I guess I guess I. I guess the first time that I ever did a show at Madison Square Garden like the actual Madison Square Garden. Not The annex theatre. I've done a lot of shows in the annex theatre the Hulu Theater now. I've done like seven or eight shows in the Hulu Theater but one time I was blessed to do like an actual boxing match in the garden. It was just the under part And that was probably like just like just sit standing in the garden looking up at all those like those big screens that they have over top of the rain and you know just thinking I I ate at bed like Michael buffer was like you know. Let's get ready to rumble. He was like doing the main card of the Madison Square Garden Event. And I remember he came up. Tim I got some things that I need to tend to be district out so the gentleman who singing national anthem and like I was like. Wow Michael buffers talking collie he's like talking to me like we're working together and then I was like wait a minute you are working together with Michael Buffer. Sure he's probably GonNa make art guaranteed a whole lot of money that view but my he's talking to you as if you're like his contemporary which. I was and we're in Madison Square Garden. Doing on showtime boxing. You know of that and we were and then. Donald Trump came down behind me with Milan. Yeah this was before. He was in the hall of fame for he was in You know The private hockey but like whole it is it is. It is what it is. I'm GonNa say this real quick and then We TALKED FOR ABOUT THIRTY MINUTES. And smashes calling my name but I just want I just wanted to say about trump and I don't care what anyone says about my opinion and I'm going to start saying this a lot more like as as much as from is almost a buffoon and very clownish in his delivery He had mastered the ability to be able to kind of like rally A crowd around. Whatever that he's saying in like win with his words And bad it's kind of like something that I think like Paul Heyman. Has I think a lot of people. You're have this kind of gift of Gab. Very may have four with the gift of Gab. You're right yeah exactly. And it's like it's like can't not. I don't like him but you can't not like almost beforehand. What are you talking about? Hey this what I'm trying to do with the masses for us to be on the show or people listen. I might see a lot of ridiculous. All my calls might say a lot of ridiculousness but I'm trying to bring you in. That's what it is talking about. And he's got a great job at that and also on another level we are dealing with a pandemic right now. A state of emergency. But I gotTa Tell You with trump in office for all of us to combat sports and wrestling and sort of things of aggression like business is really good with him kind of you know. Wwf back on track W scraping everything is going full steam ahead because I believe the agenda belligerence but he has kind of like instills a fervor of like you can fight and you can win like that doesn't necessarily mean with your fifth but it's like if you need you you've got to fight and you gotTa Win and that is at the heart of like wrestling kickboxing football basketball. So you know policy Dan I know that my life admitted affected negatively to drastically since Donald Trump's president budge. I'll tell you this. My business has been booming for us. That are involved in combat sports with him in office So you know it is what it is like. I don't I don't like any of them. I don't like any other people that are president but I'm not going to be like I dislike. I'm assuming that I I I. I'm not I'm not a partisan kind of individuals I don't really give a shit hole. Says if you you government we'd go for government. It's not like I'm not gonNA vote in for anyone but I do have one thing before I let you go at. What does that's awesome that you spent the time that you did with us and you spilled so much as a matter of fact. I'm I I we're grace is that. I don't think you've shared that much on any podcast that you'd be a work. Well I mean I'm quite come offers at like. Yeah I was like this isn't GonNa take more than ten minutes and I looked at my phone and it's been like a half an hour so we could. We could maybe set up another time where we can lead over one. Another heart too. I was sitting here telling my calls Seattle Home. I got I love him. I need to get him again. I do have to ask this. Fuck happy on the prices. Right okay so when you when you just ask me what. My greatest like announcement was that was like. He's like I wanted to say that it's high between the time that I was on. The price is right and the time but I know but I mean the garden. You know. Watch things there from when I was a kid like created. I watched the straight with those two or like from my grandma. My my aunt. That wasn't really liked by game But I mean what the hell happened? I just Talking one one Dole. Tim Show what what. What is your your this this this guy from a little town of from Baltimore and all of a sudden you get cold up. Was there that they knew you were was legit. That you've got picked randomly okay. So here's the thing I have a buddy that just went on that show. Let's make a deal and my buddy. Before he went on the show he said to me. Larry how do I get up there and I said to him? All you gotTa do is tell a story. And what they do is they do like a pre screening of everybody. That's GonNa be an audience member and when they do that pre-screening it's kind of like you have to consider that like an interview and Basically just like you said as far as like big from a small town you know I told them I'm from Baltimore currently living in the Bronx. It's my mom's birthday we'd never been to La. And I thought. Wow we're out here why not go visit. The price is right. So they're right. There in a nutshell is is made for TV. They want a person who's bringing their mom out to see. The price is right to get up on the stage and win. And that's what I did but the thing about it is. I wouldn't have winner to win the been from my mom because again prices right is not my jammy. I don't really watch that show and I don't really know the price of like fifty one inch plasmas stuff so like I won by basically just looking in the audience and finding my mom and every time that there was something to bid on besides the wheel the wheel. It's just like all random. Every time there was something going on I would look at no one else but my mom and she would tell me you know she would write in the air. One five zero zero. You know that'd be like fifteen hundred dollars through and you know one thing led to another and the next thing you know. I was spinning wheel. You know I think it'd be the woman that was in front of me She's fifty cents and I spend sixty five and I was like okay. I'll day. Yeah yeah I I know what he's talking about that how much. How much did you know totally did you? To showcase showdown right. I want everything the only thing that I did the only thing that I didn't win as the other girl young winner. I didn't win her showcase listening to this after I got back after I got back from. La In the in the show aired. And I didn't even realize this 'cause I've always been terrible at math but one of my coworkers told me they were like Larry. Do you realize you were thirty. Nine Dollars Away. From winning the other girls showcase my might be was was only thirty. Nine dollars right being a double double showcase our song I didn't win everything everything but no I want. I want what I wanted to get up on the stage. I want the game that I play. I've spent the wheel when I wanted. I WANT TO SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN. I WANNA vote. That's fucking awesome. Larry are you still using this boat? Y'All know me well. Let's just taking a winning winning's man listen. Listen hold on. Let me talk for a second just like in that movie. Happy Gilmore learn. The price is not always right. You know Because you know there is no taxation without representation in this country so you have to pay taxes on everything that you win every prize that you went any amount of money that you walk away from the show winning you gotta pay taxes on it so I sold the boat. I sold the boat for like eleven grand to pay the taxes for ten thousand dollars a year from winning all of that stuff. The price is right in and move towards the tireless higher tax bracket if I actually with someone that made that type of money annually because I had to claim So I did. I want a lot of things I wanNA. Tv I want to. I want the I want a lot of things but I also want the I had to pay those pay. California's State Tax New York state tax and Maryland State tax on all my winnings in Queens. Yes I mean you know I mean I got. I got the fact that I'm able to talk about it with your tabloid sue ended up. I mean I mean the TV the TV that we WANNA still here the house. The washer dryer still here at the House I gave up. The fireplace insert to my aunt and uncle and then a lot of things they actually cut me checks for but the Czechs were taxed so it was tax chuck so I WANNA computer That was like seventeen ninety nine so I got like a check for about. I'd say eight forty two for that. It was tax truck for forty two. So that was that was a nice little just like hey I'll take eight hundred and forty two dollars. You know like fuck it. Uh You made a U-TURN U-TURN Shit into pancakes. Third form ended as go one. I liked the Larry. When you get what you search it and pour syrup on it made pancakes your great well. I'll tell you this much I got to go to Kabul San Lucas. And I don't think that I would be able to afford that type of vacation or bad casing out of his seat. Oh Hell Yeah it was. It was like all expenses paid. I was like in the village that George Clooney has a house in. So you know. It really wasn't my people but I had a good time and made the best of it and I got Just pissy drunk every day just like students as soon as the Pool Bar. Odin like a ten. I was like they're drinking like really bad. It was really bad and then by like nude I would go back into my Ron. Go to sleep till I fi- wake up as they go back out. Took a pool bar similar toll.
