Andrew, how are you? I'm good. How you doing, Jimmy? I'm good. I just realized I didn't put my phone on do not disturb. So I'm going to do that as we speak. And I'm going to let you know that I had a reader last week for my mailbag column on S .I. com, send it an email and said, when is Marchand's next appearance? So here we go. You made someone happy. Thank you that person. You made someone happy by coming on today. Let's start with this. A lot of media news to get to. Have you heard anything from ESPN or do you have any intel about how they feel about the last two weeks? How the staggered Monday Night Football doubleheader has gone? Because I've gotten a lot of emails and tweets about it. I'm sure you have as well. Yeah, I haven't talked to anybody specifically about how they feel about it. I mean, it is an NFL decision. ESPN is not in control of how those games are scheduled. Maybe they have some say, but it's the NFL decision. Yeah, I don't like it. Actually, in our podcast with John, it was my who's down this week. And the reason I just feel like I kind of said this on our part, it's too it's like having two quarterbacks and you have none. Right. And now if you have Joe Montana and Steve Young, there are two awesome games. Maybe that'd be better. But I just find my attention split and I don't know. And even at like halftime, I wouldn't recommend you go to the other game. Like I get what they're trying to do there, but it's not the NCAA tournament. And usually it's in like the second quarter, third quarter. So I personally don't think it really works that well. Now, I think they want to avoid I'm not positive, but I think they want to avoid that 10 30 late window. We used to get the Monday night and you get the, you know, crazy crew, either Chris Berman or Golick and Greenberg, you know, some of those crews back in the day. They probably don't want that late night game where, you know, you're losing that East Coast audience if it gets too late. But I don't know. I don't think this necessarily works. See, I like it. And what are the tweet? What are the tweeters say? Most people seem to not like it. Yeah. And why do you like it? The more the merrier. Give me as much football as possible. If I can watch eight games at one o 'clock on Sunday and four or five games at four o 'clock on Sunday, I can handle two games on Monday night. So, you know, I have two TVs. I put one game on each TV and two is better than one for me. That's just how I feel. Yeah, I've been a little running around these last couple of Mondays when this happened. So I may be a little bit, you know, my opinion skewed a little bit by that. It hasn't just been like I'm just chilling and watching, been running around a little bit. So perhaps that's, you know, maybe I could be swayed. I will say, you know, I don't know. This is a whole separate discussion. I would love to know your take on this, but I always feel like it's a little tough sometimes to criticize people in this podcast when I also have to book this podcast. So I try to be careful. Yeah, I notice you're very soft. That's what you're trying to say. Sometimes. So I'm sure this guy will never come on again, but they gotta do better than Chris Fowler on the secondary game. Just not, it's just not working. Chris is not a great play -by -player. Right. He was a great host, studio host. Can I say one thing? Yeah. He's on tremendous tennis. Like I watch the U .S. Open every single day. I think he's great on tennis. It's football where it's just something feels off. Well, tennis is also slower. And like you look at people who do really well at the slower sports. Like, you know, Jim Nantz is better than Chris Fowler, but Nantz is really his best thing is golf. And I think he's an OK NFL play -by -player. And at the end of his college basketball run, he was definitely, I don't know, OK is probably, you know, he was OK there as well. And I think if you look at Fowler and his history, now he's been doing play -by -play for a while now. And he has gotten better. Like when he first started on the number one crew, I mean, if I were covering it then, that would not, I probably would not have been that kind. Because he has gotten better, but it's not really good enough. And he's the rare case, I think with Herb Street, that Herb Street makes him better. Usually it's the play -by -player who makes the analyst better. And yeah, I think you're right. And I also think, you know, in fairness to Fowler, you know, ESPN put that crew together. They replaced Levy there and they had a year or two under their belt together as a team. And, you know, not the full team, but him and Riddick, Levy and Riddick, and then Jadolowski. And I think they kind of don't, they underestimate chemistry. It takes time to build it up. And so I think that hurts. And he just, he's a college guy too. It's hard just to come into the NFL. I know he, you know, he's talked how hard his schedule is with the U .S. Open. And then, you know, doing a game a couple days later. And then doing a college. And so, you know, that's hard. And so, yeah, he's not a tremendous play -by -player. To me, this is just me, it felt like when ESPN gave him that gig, it was more about ESPN trying to impress the NFL. Like, look, we have our number one college game. Like you had said earlier, the secondary Monday night game for years was, you know, Golic and Greenberg and Chris Berman with a cast of character. Rich Ryan did it one year. I think this is ESPN trying to say to the NFL, because now they have a Super Bowl and they have this big contract. And, you know, they brought in Buck and Aikman. Like, we're serious, we're going to take our, regardless of what you think about Fowler, he's their lead college guy. So, I feel like they're like, oh, look at us, we're putting the lead when, you know, that. Yeah, I think they screwed up and I think they know they screwed up. I think that they ended up shifting who was in charge of the NFL. It was Stephanie Drewley. And they moved her off the NFL after, you know, I think that didn't help her cause in terms of staying on the NFL. I think they were satisfied with Levy. He was a good guy, which they value. After they brought in Joe Buck, he was very gracious. You know, Levy's a very good hockey guy, especially studio host. I thought he could have, you know, could have been the pregame show on Monday Night Football. He's in, again, not their, in my opinion, they had other people who are better play -by -players for football, but it was good. Like, so, yeah, I don't think it was to impress the NFL. They got Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. They got the Mannings. I mean, they spend, they're spending 50, 60 million dollars a year on their booths. Like, I don't think the second team booth is gonna, you know. If anything, I think it was, there was a thought before Buck and Aikman that Fallon and Herb Street might get the NFL. Might get Monday Night Football. Might get the potential Super Bowl. And then this is kind of a carrot since they didn't get it. But I'd argue, and I even talked to Chris Fowler about this. So, I don't know if this is the case. I just don't know if, I mean, Chris Fowler does the national championship. He does the biggest college game every week for Disney. I can't, like, I get it. Maybe he wanted to do NFL. But is this really gonna satisfy him because you're doing a second game, which generally aren't that great? I don't, I don't see that long -term, personally. And I think also, strategically, if I'm ESPN, I'm putting a young play -by -player. Now, Joe Buck, we both think it's great. Like, he and Ian Eagle are the best two play -by -players going right now. And, um, but, Joe Buck's contract's up in a couple of years. If I'm ESPN, and I, you know, I think they'll probably re -sign Joe Buck, and they should. That said, he makes a lot of money. And, you know, I would be saying, who can I develop? What young guy can I develop? So when I go into that negotiation, I really have somebody who's on the rise. And I can say, hey, look, you don't want this, you know, the 15 million a year? Then we'll go here, you know? But if you start demanding, I'm not saying this is going to happen, but, demanding even more and more money, I'd want an option. I don't think they've created an option. They've actually put somebody in that spot who they've already said they'd rather spend 15 million dollars on Joe Buck than have Chris Fowler as the lead play -by -player. So, I just think negotiation -wise, and strategically, in terms of saving money, it wasn't a great decision. Yeah. I don't understand the insistence on the three -person booth, either. They had Fowler, Greasy, and Riddick. Excuse me, excuse me. Levy, Riddick, Greasy. Now it's Fowler or Lofsky, Riddick. To me, that, and, Fowler's used to a two -person booth with Herb Street. They have Buck and Aikman, which is a two -person booth. I don't understand the insistence on the three -person booth. It's just, for football, it just, I don't get it, but, that's just my - It complicates, it over -complicates it. Yeah. And like you said, chemistry. I think it's much harder to develop a chemistry with three. I mean, you know, the local Mets situation is different with Gary Cohn, Ron Darl - Is it in baseball, is it football? What three men, can you name - I mean, I guess back in the old Monday Night Football days, there were three men booths that had - Yeah, Collinsworth and Aikman with Buck that one year. Yeah, one year it lasted, you know. So, I don't know. But, there's no more staggered double -headers. The next one is week 14, and both games will start at 8 -15. I think that's the one that's going to piss a lot of people off. But, that's a long way down the road. You got the two TVs. Yeah. I asked you if ESPN, how they feel about Monday Night Football. Anything you've heard about how they feel about their new partnership with Pat McAfee. I mean, it's early, but they're bullish on it. I mean, they've kind of handed the keys to the network to McAfee. I mean, you can't - it's kind of like Stephen A. now. You can't really turn on ESPN almost every day except basically Sunday without seeing Pat. And so, you know, I think initially the ratings weren't that good. I think they got a little better in terms of the TV ratings. I think that kind of makes some sense because if you think about it, he was a YouTube show. Yeah, he's got to play for TV. Yeah, and he's still a YouTube show. Well, it is a play for TV because they think that they had Max in there before. They think that the ratings will be high enough that they'll be able to charge more for the ad rates. I guarantee you the money they'll make off of McAfee on social media and YouTube will be 8 billion times more than the money they made off Max Kellerman on social media. Oh, 100%. No, you're right. No, you're right. There's no doubt about that. And look, they want to get, I will say this, like, does it work? I think a lot of times when companies make big moves, you know, big time moves, a lot of times they make those moves when the person's kind of towards the end, you know, they got McAfee on the rise. Like, you know, we, you know, you and I have been aware of McAfee for years now, but he's really like, you know, here, I don't think he's at the plateau, you know, where most people go up and then they plateau and then they go down. He's at, he's still, I think, going up and then maybe the plateau is on the horizon and you can plateau for 20, 25 years if you have the right attitude and personality and just have the right act. So that's where I think that makes a lot of sense as a bet because it's not, I'll hit one close to home, Rick Riley leaving ESPN. I mean, leaving SI for ESPN where, you know, Rick Riley is one of the great columnist ever, but at that point, you know, whatever, maybe it was the internet, I don't know exactly. It just didn't really work as well at ESPN as it did at SI. And so I just think they've done that and that's kind of, you know, teams do that in sports and I think sometimes networks do that. And so I feel like signing McAfee in his mid -30s is kind of like signing a baseball free agent who's in his mid -20s and I think that's what you want to do as opposed to getting a, signing a 35 -year -old and, you know, thinking they can still play, you know, like, I don't know, like a Josh Donaldson, maybe trading for someone like that, Jimmy. You see what I did there? I don't need reminders of the horrific Yankee season. I just did that on purpose. I don't need that. My head was going, who am I going to say? All right, yeah, Josh Donaldson, but it was a treat. Just a, yeah, you want me to say Brian Cashman should be fired. It's amazing too, they replay that. I didn't know this was going to be the situation going into it, but they replay the show as soon as it's over, I think, on ESPN 2 and then they replay it at night on maybe ESPN News or one of their, what you said about if you're going to put on one of the ESPNs at any point in the day, you're going to see Pat McAfee. Yeah. So that's good for him. Like I, you know, people feel like - But I also think, ESPN has to be, they have Aaron Rodgers on their air every week. It's a news making thing that's on their air every week. They've got Nick, he's got Nick Saban on his show every week. Yeah. That's a news making thing every week. I would think ESPN has to be, forget the numbers because the numbers, I think, will be there. It's still a new thing. You have, the ESPN audience is older, the McAfee audience is younger, it might take some, but I would think ESPN just on the brand and the cachet of that show has to be thrilled. I think so. I mean, but if you talk, like I have, again, I'll probably make some calls here in the near future, but so I haven't talked specifically with anybody about that. But generally speaking, when these things first start, everyone loves it. So then we'll see. Again, I'm not saying, I could see it either way. Like, you know, McAfee has not really stayed at any of these, throughout any of these contracts he's had. So that's something to watch. Maybe this one he does, but that hasn't been the case previously. So that is something. I think the fact that he's on game day has to help the relationship there a little bit with ESPN. Here's the thing about McAfee. If you're managing him, in my opinion, and it's like Casey Jones, the former coach of the Celtics, was known for just throwing out the ball and telling McHale, Parrish, and Bird to go play, Dennis Johnson. At least that's how I remember as a kid. That was his reputation. And I think McAfee is sort of like that. Just give him the ball, let him do his thing. He's not looking to, you know, for some strategy. Let's, you know, triangle offense. He's not looking for that. He's looking for, let me do my thing. I know what I'm doing. And the thing about McAfee is he's very smart. Like, I know he plays this, like, he's not smart thing. It works very hard. He works hard and he's very smart. He's very savvy. He acts as if, like, you know, maybe he's, you know, just a dumb jock. But he understands the media business very well. We need, we need to discuss the Kelsey Taylor Swift thing because I actually think it's a legitimate media story. If Fox is going to get these increase in their demographics of the female audience, the young people, the NFL has gone all in on this thing. I mean, they changed their Twitter header to, like, a Taylor Swift thing. They're putting out Travis Kelsey Swiftiest plays on their social media. He's gained, I guess, a ton of followers, the jersey sale. Let me start with this. How did you think Fox handled it on Sunday when she was in the stadium? Do you think they overdid it? Do you think the fact that they had an unwatchable game takes them off the hook? What was your take on the Chiefs -Bears on Sunday when she was there? I think the second part, and I wouldn't take them off the hook, but I think the second part, you have an unwatchable game that you had to switch most of the country out of because it was so non -competitive, that you have Taylor Swift there, it's a big deal. And, you know, there's a lot of Taylor Swift fans who are football fans, a lot of non -Taylor Swift fans who weren't watching that game, but it was a talking point, right? Like, I saw Taylor Swift in the concert this summer, but that was kind of - Look at you! Yeah, how do you like that? Look at you! You couldn't even get tickets. Big shot. Where'd you get tickets? My daughter's friend just won the lottery. No shenanigans. Oh, really? Tickets were $235 each, which is still a lot of money, but not, like, $1 ,000. And it was just kind of happenstance, how I ended up going. I was going to say, if your daughter's friend got tickets, how did you end up at the era's tour? I mean - Were you, like - It's just a long drive to get to the metal lands, didn't want them driving back. They're older, they can drive, but at, you know, one o 'clock in the morning from Taylor Swift, so - But you were in MetLife and watched the show. Yes. Friendship bracelets? Well, you want to know something funny? This is a good one. So, my daughter's friend said to me, do you want a - do you want a jewel? And I'm like, no, no, no, I'm okay. Thinking she's saying a jewel, like a jewel, smoke. But she was saying, like, to, like, get bedazzled, a little jewel, which I would have taken. So later, I was like, I told my daughter, I said, but your friend, she said she asked me if I wanted a jewel. She's like, no, no, she didn't say you wanted a jewel. She said, do you want a - a jewel to put some ju - you know. Right. I didn't have any bracelets, but I was into - I liked Taylor Swift. I wouldn't go again. I kind of felt bad being there, because there's people who give their left arm to be there. But it was - look, she is an unbelievable performer. I mean, it was - you could - first of all, I liked some of her songs. Secondly, the level of performance. It was just, you know, it was an A+. I mean, that - that - and that is something, even if you didn't like her music, you can appreciate it. And also, I appreciate it if I had to go to the bathroom. Easy pass right in there. No one. Right. No one's leaving their seat except for people like you who aren't in it. Yeah, and especially, yeah, and more skewed women.

A highlight from SBF TRIAL: 09/27 UPDATE

"Welcome to the SBF trial, a Coindesk podcast network newsletter bringing you daily insights from inside the courtroom where Sam Bankman -Fried will try to stay out of prison. Follow the Coindesk podcast network to get the audio each morning with content from the Coindesk regulation team and voiced by Wondercraft AI. Judge Lewis Kaplan will indeed let Sam Bankman -Fried's defense team ask certain Department of Justice witnesses about their recreational drug use, sort of. The judge, who has overseen the case for nearly a year now, inched closer to resolving outstanding issues ahead of trial. Last week, it was the Daubert motions regarding expert witnesses. Yesterday, it was resolving most of the motions addressing testimony and evidence questions. The defense team can cross -examine cooperating witnesses about issues like privileged company information and their recreational drug use, though the attorneys need to notify the court beforehand. The prosecution can present evidence tied to FTX's bankruptcy during the trial over the defense's objections. We'll also see information about the FTT token and whether its price was manipulated by other FTX insiders. Separately, as reported yesterday, Bankman -Fried is once again trying to get himself out of second and through the duration of his trial. The FTX founder was locked up in August after Judge Kaplan ruled he'd likely try to tamper with witnesses. Earlier this month, his request to overturn that decision was denied, and last week, an appeals court refused to alter the ruling. But in a Monday letter, lawyers for the disgraced crypto CEO asked a New York court to let him stay at a temporary residence in the city with a security guard. They also asked the judge to let Bankman -Fried travel to his attorneys' workspaces during the trial itself because it was exceedingly difficult to prepare for the trial from jail. The security guard, who the lawyers say will remain with Bankman -Fried at the residence, will also make sure he doesn't have any visitors or access to any computers, cell phones, the internet, television, or any other electronic devices, the letter said. It's unclear if p the five .m. Eastern time today for the DOJ to weigh in on the application. Defense attorneys have also requested that Bankman -Fried be allowed to wear a suit during the trial. During his last appearance before Judge Kaplan, he wore a prison uniform and was shackled. We're still waiting for the trial to start. The trial will start with jury selection on October 3rd at 930 a .m. Eastern time. The DOJ anticipates this taking the better part of a day. White -collar attorneys believe it'll take longer. Either way, opening statements will likely begin the day after a jury is seated. The DOJ also anticipates bringing some witnesses up to testify as soon as next week, with the court docket hinting that those witnesses may well be FTX insiders like Gary Wang, Caroline Ellison, and Nishad Singh.

Let's see. I can find it. It's, uh, not that it's anything out of, you know, anything that we don't know about, but let's see here. Philadelphia swarmed by alleged juvenile. Come on, come on. Juvenile looters targeting the Apple store, Lulu lemon and footlocker. Yeah. So, cause they're starving. They're starving. They just, just need a little piece of ham and some Turkey. They need clothes and food. That's, that's only fair. I mean, they, you know, and once again, I know we've all heard this joke, but footlocker is not missing one pair of working boots. No, no, all the Nike's, all the Nike. Yeah. Well, some of those Nike's, I mean, Oh my God. Crazy. You know, talking about like, you know, thousands of dollars for a pair of, thousands, thousands of dollars. I was talking to my daughter and she said to one, one of her friends has a, as a pair of shoes were $1 ,200. I'll never forget the most expensive pair of shoes I ever bought. We were just starting a business. This was like 30 years ago now. Right. Crazy to think. And I remember somebody told me that maybe my dad was like, you got to have a decent pair of shoes. Right. And so I went up and I bought a pair of Justin and Murphy's. They're like 120 bucks at the time. Yeah. The most money I have ever spent on a pair of shoes. Now boots, I've spent more money on since because boots are more expensive, you know, hunting boots. Well, there's a purpose to them. I still don't spend more money on shoes. Like I'm wearing like Skechers or like $40. Like some of these Nike's $500. You can't tell me you're running faster. It's different when you're going to go out and buy a pair of like waders or something. You're going to use them. First of all, you're going to use them for the next 30 years. Right. And there's a purpose to them, right? Like, okay, they're more expensive, but I can walk through the water with them. Right. But if I bought like, if I had five, 600 hour pairs of shoes, I'd be afraid to leave the house. I wouldn't, I wouldn't get off the carpeting. Well, they're targeting the Apple store here, Glenn, because they'll buy jobs. And that's the only way to get a job is to make sure you've got an Apple iPhone. So it'll be like Chicago. We talked about this the other week with, with, uh, with Mike Speraza, Chicago is now forced to open or, or just talking about opening, you know, a, a government run grocery store in the inner city because they've all that. Well, they're going to, so they're going to, they're going to, the plan is to fight the communism with more kind of communism, right? That's going to work really well. But could you imagine how inefficient, first of all, Walmart's pulled out, Costco's pulled out, all the stores have pulled out because now target, have you heard targets now closing stores across the country? So target is now going through and discussing all the stores across the country, liberal target, liberal target. They put a black lives matter that they ripped down the smash of the window. I thought that'd be some sort of a shield or that we're just going to put up this, uh, this plywood and we're going to spray black lives matter on it. Hashtag hashtag BLM. And we'll be safe as they rip it out and use that same plywood to smash the window with. It's pathetic. There'll be nothing left in these inner cities. The problem is when it starts to spill over into the, into the, Oh yeah. This is, this is where it gets ugly. Well, they want it. That's what they want. That's, that's why people like, uh, the governor of New York, uh, you know, Kathy, the ice queen, Kathy Hochul is, is, you know, they first tried the push for section eight housing in the suburbs because that was only fair. Yeah. Now they couldn't get that through because the people in the suburbs are like, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Now they're busing in illegal immigrants in the middle of the night. And I tell you something, if these Democrats like Mark Poland cars were proud of what they were doing, they would have a welcoming party at noon at noon, high noon. They'd have a press conference welcoming our newest community members off the bus so that the whole community could see these family units that are getting off. You got the husband, the wives, the two kids, you know, the things that we see in our country, right? No, it's not happening. They're bringing them in at two o 'clock in the morning. So nobody sees, they're all, they're all 23 year old males, right? Or 18 to 25 year old males. Some of which are from the Congo. I don't know about the, uh, you know, the, some of the social norms in the Congo, but I'm just thinking that maybe they're a little bit different than the Western world. I don't know. I'm just thinking maybe not. Maybe they're exactly like us. I don't know. But they're exactly like us. Why would they want to come here? Why are they aspiring to come here? I don't know. Anyway, it's a fentanyl fentanyl up again, by the way, there was another report. I think it was on a Fox news. Well, good for the Republicans. I mean, at least part of them, I should say good for the five or six Republicans that are the extreme right wing, according to the media, that's holding this garbage up. No, shut the government down, shut it down, shut it down until there's no more money. Take the money, go into Ukraine and send it to Texas, which they did right to the border, which they didn't do last time. Right. Kept it open. That's what do you need? What do you need? We're out of control. The founding fathers gave the power of the purse to Congress and the, and the Pentagon, the Pentagon goes, yeah, you know what? We're just going to exempt Ukraine funding from the budget. So ha ha. We just went over 33 trillion. If you go online and look at the clock, it's moving fast, right? So we're on our way to 34 or 35. Can you even see the numbers anymore? They just blur blur now. So, so fast. Oh no. And, and good news, by the way, we're refinancing this debt at 5 % now, not at 1 % or zero like we were doing. Yeah. It makes a lot of sense. Yeah. It'd be great. Yeah. The fence talk about keeping rates higher for longer. I don't know. They're not going to be able to do that. They'll be cutting interest rates by next year. Mark by where? And the number one reason I say that is because when you talk to every economist, I say, that's not going to happen. And they are typically wrong. So if you take the, it's like saying betting against the casino, it's like saying, you know what? I don't think MGM is going to make money in the sporting books next year. Ma, they're going to figure out a way to make money. They'll rechange the lines, right? Well, you, all you need to do is look at it and get a bunch of economists in a room and ask them where they think the market's going to be and then do just the opposite and you would be way better. Yeah. Pretty much that's usually the way to go. No doubt about it. So the, the, the, the Pelosi, we were talking earlier about the Pelosi stock trader. Yeah. You can follow online. Now, some of these folks, we did the game show game last week. We talked about the, uh, the net worth. I picked the poor ones too. They were like 23, 21, you know, $20 million. Some of these folks are amazing. I mean, really just, you know, the wizards of smart on some of these are just really, timing is impeccable up here. This is somebody who is selling some software that I'll track it, which you can, you, you've pointed out, you can get it for free online, but, but the, the numbers are really astonishing. This Democrat Senator sold her Aspen vacation home for $25 million. That was just after she sold her Lake Tahoe vacation house for $36 million. Well, by the way, why, why do they own these big $25, $36 million homes? Well, a big, big part of it is because the taxation of it, right? So a Feinstein who's telling you your ordinary income tax rates are too low. She's shifting that to a capital asset, which is going to create a capital gain in the future or no gain. Or no gain. I mean, they're 10, 10 31. This is why when Donald Trump looked at Hillary Clinton right in the eye and said, you will not get rid of the carry interest deduction and you know it because all of your, I use it, of course, all of her bigger donors donate money to Hillary Clinton. And this is exactly the truth, right? They will never get rid of some of these things. Like they talked about, we're going to get rid of the 10 31 exchanges. Yaha. Yeah. Uh huh. Yeah. So the big developer strokes a giant check to the, to the Democrats off the table. Let's listen to her success though. Amazing. A Senator sold her Aspen vacation home for $25 million just after she sold her Lake Tahoe vacation house for $36 million. Only two years earlier, Diane Feinstein has been a member of the political scene for 32 years and her salary is only $130 ,000 per 130 grand a year. Now it's more now. That's a little bit dated, but it's up, it's up to probably 180 now. But, but listen to this. First of all, if it was up to 580, you're not buying $23 million homes, $36 million homes. No, no, we're going to put in multiple homes. We're going to, we're going to put the Paul Pelosi onto our research committee. You make a million dollars a year. First of all, most of, most business owners that make that kind of money, they didn't make it throughout their whole life, right? They didn't start making a million dollars at 20 years old. They started making a million dollars at 50 years old and it took 30 years to get to that point. Right? So my point is, you're not at a million dollars a year at age 50. If you did it the right way, the hard way, and you did it yourself, you're still not affording a $23 million home, right? Multiple ones. Yeah. Multiple, multiple. Right. Those aren't even her primary residence. Those are her vacation homes. She lives in, she lives in California. Listen to this though. And it's, it's all of them. It's all of them now. This is a, this is from Nancy Pelosi, stock trader. Uh, this is a tweet, uh, a Twitter feed. You can follow Pelosi tracker is what it's supposed to track or underline or something like that. You'll find it. Anyway, uh, three weeks ago, sitting politician bet against the U S economy so far. He's been right. Tom Carper bought $45 ,000 of PSQ and inverse ETF on the tech sector on eight 23, August 23rd. Since then he's plus 3 % while the market is negative 4%. Go figure. Wow. Go figure. Man, these guys are so good. Yeah. And they're not by, they're, I mean, these are, that's some pretty technical strategy. You started getting into options strategies and stuff. I mean, yeah. Yeah. These guys have become very, very slick. It's not just about buying a, you see, it used to be, okay, I'm going to buy X, Y, Z. Then I'm going to vote for or against something. You know, I'm going to short the stock and then I'm going to vote against them for both that, that, that. So the stock goes down or I'm going to vote for something, knowing that it will benefit the company. The stock will go up and in a sense front running. No, they're, they're in the options strategies now. They're in the market. Yeah. They're doing butterfly spreads. Yeah. Crazy stuff going. They're very sophisticated. They shouldn't be allowed to two things. When you go into Congress, I, you know, I would love to have a Congress person run on or present around the following platform, right? Number one, term limits, term limits, top of the list. Number two, though, while you're in Congress for the eight years, or wherever we allow you to serve 10 years, 12 years, whatever it is, you could not invest in a stock market at all. All your investments are frozen or your choices, a model, some kind of a model liquidated go to cash, or you could buy the fidelity balance to counter. You could buy the, you could buy the T -rope price, you know, target retire, whatever, you know, or you go to goes into a blind something or other where you have no idea. Right. It just goes into what you picked a one through five tolerance for risk and somebody else invest. Maybe it's just broad indexing. Maybe that's it. Right. Something that doesn't allow this kind of garbage to go on where, you know, they buy, you know, Tesla stock and then approve a huge, you know, oh, we're going to, guess what? We're going to build a, you know, for government funded battery stations all the country. Of course, Elon comes out and goes, we already got those, you idiots. I did that like four years ago, you morons. Amazing what Elon can do and what the, what the government can. Going back to target for just a second, not to digress, but I found WGRZ, thankfully came up with a list of the, uh, the target stores that will be closing, Mike, the full list of locations all in, all in Republican run. You'll be shocked. Yeah. Yeah. Right in the, uh, the thriving, the, uh, you know, thriving, the Minneapolis, uh, location, the retailer said the decision, the close was really difficult. I wonder if that was after half. That was the one they put the BLM on. Yeah. Oh, that was the one they put the sign on that said, please don't burn our store down. We love you. I hashtag BLM lit it on fire. Yeah, that's right. Yeah. Uh, let's see. I'm shocked though. I wouldn't, I'm surprised you wouldn't stay. I mean, you know, like just collecting, you love them. You love, you support them. This is what you supported. Remember you, you, you raised money, you gave money. Yeah. And guess what they did with that money. They agitators hired to whip up people in the community to smash and burn down your store. You idiots. So there you go. There you go. Nice, nice work. What else do you think, Mike? Uh, New York city's East Harlem neighborhood. That's going to be one that's goes down. I wonder why. Chicago, San Francisco for sure. San Fran. Yeah. San Fran. Uh, by the way, before I forget San Fran, Democrat San Francisco mayor, announces plan to require drug testing, which is good in an effort to, if you're going to receive homeless benefits. Right. But the funny thing was in this same passage, they're going to Texas to try to recruit police officers. The funny thing is is that the people they sent from San Francisco to try to recruit people. They didn't come back. They defected like North Koreans. Some of them got jobs. They get over the wall. They come out, they get over the wall. It was hilarious. No, they didn't go back. Well, the other five stores, Mike, three in Portland, Oregon and two in Seattle, five, three in Portland. They're pulling out of Portland together. All of these inner cities folks will be food deserts. You're going to hear that term. It'll be business deserts. It'll be nothing. Well, business deserts, nothing left, but there'll be, but target, don't forget target. Does target sell food? Yeah. Well, yeah. They sell food. Yeah. For sure. Yeah. Well, I don't go on target. So Walmart I know does Costco for sure. Costco is a food store. I don't think target is as big as Walmart as far as like fresh fruit, but definitely frozen food, all that kind of stuff. You know, aisles of pop and water and chips and right, right, right. And all that kind of stuff. But you can definitely frozen food. You can buy bulk frozen food there. So, so there's going to be food deserts, all over the place, business deserts, whatever you want to call them. You know, it's amazing because you know, the, there's no policing. And the sad thing is that is the problem. It's not, there's no policing. I shouldn't say that. Excuse me. No, you're policing your asses off. I get it. There's no ability. There's no prosecution. There's no bill. You guys are arresting people, putting them in and they go right back on the street. They're getting, they're getting appearance tickets. It's a joke. Your point is no, there is no policing anymore because of the system, the Democrats put together where the police officers aren't going to bother. If you're a police officer and you know that somebody is going to be this, this carjacking or whatever is robbery. And you know that there's a potential, you're going to get an altercation where you're in New York state. There's two police officers that have been brought up on charges recently with almost a hundred percent chance that if you do catch that person, that person will be right back. Yeah. A hundred percent. Why would you bother? Why would you bother? You're not going to put your life in line. No way. You want to go home to see your wife and kids too, and your mother or your husband or whatever. You want to be able to spend your Christmas with your family. Why would you do that? And they know that, right? The Democrats know that. This is, you can't be this stupid. I mean, who allows these people to go right back on the streets and say, this is a good idea without correcting this right away. You can say, okay, bail reform. Our intentions were one thing, but when you look at the fact that in New York state, we are now breaking records in towns like Rochester and Buffalo for the most amount of vehicles being stolen. We can say, okay, look at bail reform, put it in place. It clearly did not work. It's been a total disaster. These towns have turned to shit. We absolutely need to go back in the other direction. They're not doing that. They don't care. They want to, and they're doubling down, tripling down on it, tripling down. We invited this liberal on, you actually were on the show with him and he said, things are actually safer since bail reform. That's what his argument was. His argument was, and by the way, his argument was if we have even less police officers, cities like Buffalo will get safer. Well the thought was less police officers, less arrests. Less arrests means less crime. Dude, you got the whole thing backwards, bro. And not only that, but now we know that, right? Now we know, now you can, I mean, literally auto thefts are up 360 % in Rochester. They're not up 3%. You can say, well, you know, in Buffalo and we're in second place. And they can't play, they can't play in COVID. They're trying to like, well, it was a lockdown. People were at pent up, whatever. Remember that was the, that was the reason for the rioting and the ballooning and burning like, well, people had a lot of pent up. We probably should have locked them down. That was a little bit of the reason for the increase in suicides. You guys, you guys increased suicides because you locked kids in their homes, but it wasn't the reason that they went and decided to steal Nike sneakers from a footlocker. So check this out. Speaking of COVID, this is huge. This is, I don't know if you saw this or not, but this is absolutely ginormously huge. Dr. Fauci was smuggled into CIA headquarters without a record of entry where he participated in the analysis to influence the agency's COVID -19 investigation according to the house select subcommittee on the coronavirus pandemic. Did he need to do much with these left -wing CIA agents? Probably not. No, no, no. That's what they're smuggling him in for. Well they smuggled him in because they didn't want anybody to know that he was part of the PSYOP operation, which was hydroxychloric. By the way, the I think it was a Mayo clinic and some other hospitals now have come out as well as the CDC and said hydroxychloroquine, yes, indeed is an effective treatment for COVID. Oh, by the way, ivermectin also an effective treatment. The CDC now approving that. Now mind you, we're going to keep in mind that if there was any other treatments that couldn't get the emergency use authorization for these vaccines that clearly don't work. Amazingly, I'm still seeing people online go signing off my sixth booster on our way for the sixth shot, proud to get our sixth shot. How about how about one the other day, local left -wing nut job got her sixth booster shot, six shot and she still got COVID and then she said, well, I was so good hiding and it got all my shots and then I went to a concert and I got it at this concert. Well, first of all, you don't know that, but second of all, if you have six shots and you six shots and you still got COVID and you actually think that was a good idea, you don't need a vaccination. You need a mental, you need a mental check. I tell you, I know people during the during the COVID, the height of the COVID that were older, some of our clients actually that were prescribed by a doctor a hydroxy quirk when they were taking it once a week as a as a preventative measure. Yeah. And they, to this day have never had COVID. Yeah. And it's, it's, I mean, so it, but the sad thing is again, you know, we couldn't, it's all about the money now. And that's, you know, when people talk about the evils of capitalism, you're seeing some of that. Now, capitalism is the best thing on the planet, right? As far as, you know, lifting the masses out of poverty and creating amazing amounts of wealth. But the problem is this isn't, this isn't capitalism. What's going on. This is cronyism is what's going on. It is, Hey, look at, I will give you these government dollars. You're going to get this patent. You're going to get this. Unholy marriage between business and government. Mark my word. We were talking about Feinstein selling 25, $30 million homes. This Fauci will be on the board of Pfizer. He'll be on the board of Moderna. He's going to get shares of those companies. He will be blessed with with with millions and millions of dollars. His family watch and see, we'll be talking if we're, if you and I are fortunate enough to be around 20, 30 years from now, we'll be talking about the Fauci trust and watch and monitor that trust and see how big that family trust. Well, you see how easy this is now. You look at how they move money around and how the in your face money laundering folks. This is what this is. This is corruption and fraud. Some of the Bidens are great at the money laundering part. They got 20 shell corporation, but guess who's getting the, guess who's going to be controlling the funding to rebuild Ukraine. We pay to destroy it. And guess what? The Hillary Clinton foundation gets paid to rebuild it. Right. And guess who's going to get the contracts to rebuild. Oh, that'll be probably one of the Biden family members or somebody else's politically connected. Right. Remember it was, it was a Joe Biden's brother who got the contract, the multi -billion dollar contract to rebuild Iraq. No building experience, never been a contractor, right? No idea. Right. This is why these projects cost 500 times what they're supposed to cost. This is why when money comes into Buffalo, for example, $25 million to build homes, five get built. And you were, wait a minute, five, are these $5 million homes in the East side? Each of those homes would have been built for a quarter million dollars or less. And yet where did the rest of the money go? And the, the answer is never, we don't know. We don't know. We can't account for it. Or we'd have no idea. Or I mean, how many times have we've seen that in so many places that whether right down the local level or God forbid at the federal level between, you know, Iraq and others. I was telling you last week on the radio, I was reading an article about the grants that were coming into the city of Buffalo to plant trees. And I thought, okay, wow, like this could be sweet. Okay. You know, like I'm a big tree guy. I love trees. I plant trees every year. I do think, okay, that's one way to, first of all, I think it's one way to make a community look great. When you, when you drive around, let's say North Buffalo, all the streets are all tree. They look beautiful. You drive around the East side, it looks like shit, right? So, okay. You're going to take some of my tax money and you're going to directly plant trees. Okay. It's a win for the environment. It looks nice. It's going to bring things together. I'm like, well, where's the catch? This is a government agency. Where are they going to screw it up? You read through and you find out that they're paying $1 ,000 a tree. Now you and I both know that if they're saying it's $1 ,000 a tree, by the time it's done, it'll be two to $3 ,000 a tree. Now you, you're talking about $13 million worth of trees. You and I just planted trees. Every year we plant a few trees around our office, you know, three, four in the spring, three, four in the fall, just so they can start to grow and work their way in. And then, you know, plant more. We pay $250 a tree, plant it. Right.

A highlight from Day 8 The Archangels St. Michael and the Holy Angels Novena Discerning Hearts Catholic Podcasts

"A novena to St. Michael and the Holy Angels. O God, come to my assistance. O Lord, make haste to help me. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and never shall be, world without end. Amen. Day 8. The Celestial Choir of Archangels. The Archangels' primary duty, as is clear from their appearances in Scripture, is to carry out the will of God as it relates directly to humanity. They bring to the world the prayerful blessings of the Lord and the special concern of God for each and every human life. It is for that reason that the Archangels, like their close counterparts, the angels, are said to intervene so regularly in the affairs of men and women, be it on a battlefield, in an impending disaster, or in the private anguish and sorrow of the living. In each case, they impart a portion of their immense compassion and love, giving comfort, solace, or fortitude at the darkest of moments. By the intercession of St. Michael and the Celestial Choir of Archangels, may the Lord give us perseverance in faith and in all good works, in order that we gain the glory of Paradise. Amen. Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and for all that is to come, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen. Prince St. Michael, chief and commander of the heavenly hosts, guardian of souls, vanquisher of rebel spirits, servant in the house of the Divine King, and our admirable conductor, thou who dost shine with excellence in superhuman virtue, vouchsafe to deliver us from all evil, who turn to thee with confidence, and enable us by thy gracious protection to serve God more and more faithfully every day. Pray for us, O glorious St. Michael, Prince of the Church of Jesus Christ, that we may be made worthy of his promises. Almighty and everlasting God, who by a prodigy of goodness and a merciful desire for the salvation of all men, hast appointed the most glorious archangel, St. Michael, Prince of thy church, make us worthy, we beseech thee, to be delivered from all our enemies, that none of them may harass us at the hour of death, but that we may be conducted by him into the august presence of thy divine majesty. This we beg through the merits of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 09/25/23

"Were you hardwired into this program Mike? Kinda, yeah. This was an actual hit. The theme song of this was an actual hit on the actual radio in 1976. We have a happy day's cast birthday. That would be Potsy. Potsy is 74. I have no idea how old Ralph Mouth is. Well, they're all in their 70s. It's a weird birthday too because Mark Hamill, virulent liberal Luke Skywalker, he is 72. And you know, you just pause, you stop and you think about the career and what happened. The great Christopher Reeve would have been 71 today. That 1995 horse accident, man, I still haven't scrubbed my brain of that and what heroism and activism. So anyway, big showbiz birthdays. A lot going on in the news. You want to do some new stuff or the book, the article? Well, let's do both. Yeah, the book comes out this week, the Fox News book, but let's start, let's not bury the lead. This Washington Post poll has people in hysteria. I mean, they are running through the streets of DC with their hair on fire. This is kind of unusual. I've never seen a media organization like the Washington Post produce the results of a poll and then trash their own poll and bang on it. Right. It's an outlier. This can't be real. This can't be right. I mean, it's devastating news for Biden if it's to be believed. Now let's face it. Polls are quirky. Here's why polls kind of matter. We kind of, they don't. The reason they don't matter is because Lord knows we saw polling about the big red wave in 2022 and that didn't quite work out for us. So let's remember before we get too excited about polls that they are subject to change dramatically. But here's where it does matter. It does give a person like Donald Trump momentum. There is an appearance of momentum. There is the facade of surging and momentum, which kind of feeds upon itself. It just, it just snowballs. So it's real. I mean, it's very, very, it's very, very palpable. And it becomes even more and more unlikely that anybody's going to overcome him. But we never know. A lot can change. We still could, we still could change. How about the debate Wednesday? I heard you mentioned driving in. I thought I saw Burgum. Yes, you did. I rectified that a couple. He did. He managed to get 3 % in Iowa, 4 % in New Hampshire. Speaking of polls I'm skeptical of, there's one, but bless his heart. He seems like a good guy. It seems to be wasted time. I have a very short appetite for wasted time. How about wasted money? How about the money he's spending on the ads? You know what those ads cost? I know. And they're all, I see, I see six Doug Burgum ads every day on Fox news, speaking of Fox news. Every ad I see on Fox news for Doug Burgum, I think how many families of police officers would that help? Or how many poor people would that feed? Or how much, how much of a border wall would that fund? It's his money. I know he can do what he wants. But what a waste of money. It seems to be. Unless, unless he comes in third in Iowa or New Hampshire, kind of punches a ticket out of the month of January. And I mean, stranger things, well, not many stranger things have happened, but then maybe, maybe he ends up with some, how old is he? Is there running mate buzz? You're not going to have a North Dakota running mate buzz. There's not buzz about him over here at the 7 -11 down the street from the airport. Buzz. There's no Doug Burgum buzz. Here's the conspiracy buzz about the Washington Post poll that you just mentioned is that this is on purpose. They want to show Biden as desperate so that in the liberal and the Democrat ivory towers, they can really get the ball moving on replacing him with somebody who might have a prayer of winning. So that's not without some merit. I mean, you know, they got to be sitting around saying, this is our guy. I mean, last week at the UN, at one point it was utter gibberish. And you're looking, I'm thinking my Lord, that's the commander in chief of the United States of America. So the Democrats have to see this. Mark, no way he'll be the nominee. No way he's going to run. Shall I ask you? I mean, okay. I'll ask you again. It's a flow chart.

"Day 8. The Celestial Choir of Archangels. The Archangels' primary duty, as is clear from their appearances in Scripture, is to carry out the will of God as it relates directly to humanity. They bring to the world the prayerful blessings of the Lord and the special concern of God for each and every human life. It is for that reason that the Archangels, like their close counterparts, the angels, are said to intervene so regularly in the affairs of men and women, be it on a battlefield, in an impending disaster, or in the private anguish and sorrow of the living.

It's just about everything that's happened this week. I'm Eric Hanson, and we begin with President Trump, who made some controversial statements about abortion this week and called Ron DeSantis's six week abortion ban a terrible mistake. We might as well get this out of the way. We got President Trump with an answer to Kristen Welker on NBC's Meet the Press and her debut as the new host, which gave a lot of ammunition to Trump haters who want to hurt him and try to wreck his chances of becoming the nominee in 2024. This is an interesting dilemma that Republicans have. Here's the dilemma. Pro -life fighting for the sanctity of those unborn babies, the sanctity of their lives, the sacredness of the innocent. That's a centerpiece that's foundational for the Republican Party. And whether we like it or not, this particular debate that we're having in America over abortion is crushing us at the ballot box. And Donald Trump, I believe, was trying to address that with Kristen Welker on Meet the Press. Let's get it out of the way. I've been dreading this all weekend. Well, it wasn't all weekend. I mean, this first broke, I think, Saturday. They gave a little preview of his answer. I don't love his answer, but I also don't love the way Trump critics are pouncing on him, claiming he's not pro -life. I got into a big knockdown drag out, as I expected I would with my friend Mark Davis in Dallas, because Mark is now hell bent on proclaiming that Donald Trump is not pro -life. And he's saying that because of this exchange with Kristen Welker yesterday on Meet the Press. If a federal ban landed on your desk, if you were re -elected, would you sign it at 15 weeks? Are you talking about a complete ban? A ban at 15 weeks? Well, people are starting to think of 15 weeks. That seems to be a number that people are talking about right now. Would you sign that? I would I would sit down with both sides and I negotiate something and we'll end up with peace on that issue for the first time in 52 years. I'm not going to say I would or I wouldn't. I mean, the sanctus would really design a five week and six week ban. Would you support that? I think what he did is a terrible thing and a terrible mistake. But we'll come up with a number. But at the same time, Democrats won't be able to go out in six months, seven months, eight months and allow an abortion. Now, there are people who took that answer and proclaimed that Donald Trump is not pro -life, like it's important to proclaim or make some kind of declaration that he is not pro -life. I believe it's ridiculous to claim that a guy who's the only president to ever attend the March for Life, the guy who promised to get Roe v. Wade overturned because that was terrible federal. That was a terrible federal ruling and appointed Supreme Court justices who did just that to claim that Donald Trump is not pro -life is preposterous. It's absurd. It's virtue signaling. And perhaps it's just. The opportunistic way you chalk up some points for Ron DeSantis, because clearly Team DeSantis is pouncing on Donald Trump over this remark. I believe two things can be true at the same time. You can be pro -life and you can acknowledge that this issue is killing us at the ballot box. And we're losing elections. So President Trump has some campaign trouble to manage. Meanwhile, our current president can barely navigate a simple speech. If you miss Joe Biden at the U .N. this week, well, buckle up. Remember when Trump went to the United Nations and gave a really good speech and the media freaked out and said how goofy and wild and unpresidential and unprecedented it was, they had a complete meltdown and he gave a really decent speech. Compare that to the appearance of Joe Biden yesterday at the U .N. Now, even as we have all our institutions and drive creative new partnerships. Let me be clear. Certain principles of our international system are sacrosanct. Both Biden and Kamala Harris do the same thing when they say, let me be clear, run for the hills, because when they say, let me be clear, you're going to see nothing but mud and gibberish. I mean, babbling incoherently in front of the United Nations. And if that wasn't wild enough, you've got the Ukrainian President Zelensky. He marches in with his entourage. You know, I used to say I was torn about Ukraine. People that I respect insist that we have got to continue to fund the Ukrainian battle with Russia, that the American people have to help Ukraine with its border. We dare not have a wall for our own border, but we better, by God, help Ukraine with theirs. We better fund them. We better give them the missiles they want. We got to give them the ammunition they need. We need to. We got to stop Vladimir Putin. And if you push back against that, you're a stooge for Vladimir Putin. You're a Putin puppet. Just ask Tucker Carlson. When Tucker dared to express the belief that the American people have bigger fish to fry than funding Ukraine, he was thoroughly denounced and renounced as a stooge of Vladimir Putin. So there goes Zelensky marching into the UN yesterday with his bodyguards and his entourage, and he gets up to that podium. And what he said was pretty stunning. I expected he would stand at that giant podium in front of that ugly green background at the UN and talk about the need to fund his military. Talk about Russia's aggression against the Ukrainian people. Talk about Ukraine's place in the whole worldview of things instead. We got this. Even though humanity is failing on its climate policy objectives, this means that extreme weather will still impact the normal global life and some evil state will also weaponize its outcomes. And then people in the streets of New York and other cities of the world went out on climate protest. We all have seen them and when people in Morocco and Libya and other countries die as a result of natural disasters and when islands and countries disappear underwater and when tornadoes and deserts are spreading into into new territories and when all of this is happening, one unnatural disaster in Moscow decided to launch a big war and killed the tens of thousands of people. No wonder loony leftists have the Ukrainian flag in their front yard. You would think the Ukrainian president had bigger problems than climate change. Meanwhile, the United Auto Workers hit the picket lines this week. They made a few modest demands like a 40 % pay raise in a four day work week. Speaking of the UAW strike, I watched Sean Fain, the president of the United Auto Workers Union on the Sunday morning news shows. And you know, I admit I'm not a real big fan of unions. In fact, quite the opposite. I kind of think that unions have helped destroy many aspects of our economic system. In fact, it's a commonly held view that pension plans that used to be in place contributed to the decline of the U S automakers. Well, now the UAW is demanding pensions come back. They want the old fashioned defined benefit plan. And as Bloomberg points out, pensions are not worth striking over. You know what I find interesting about the UAW dispute? I heard all the talking points about how the corporate executives at the big three automakers make too much money. That's a Bernie Sanders mantra. That's an Elizabeth Warren trope. The executives make too much. You know, a company can be producing billions of dollars of revenue, but the Bernie Sanders of the world want to cap what an executive at one of those companies earns, which I always find so fascinating. It's as if they want to equate the guy or gal on the assembly line with the big automakers. Well, they're not the same. I mean it'd be nice if everybody made the same amount of money in life hate to break it to your life doesn't work that way. Some people make more than others and admittedly a lot of it is luck. I don't deserve the living that I make, but I'm very blessed to make a good living. There are people make a lot more than I do and I don't begrudge them anything, but simply because somebody that might have a show on television might make 10 times what I make. I don't think I should make what they make simply because we do the same essentially same thing. I mean, and Democrats always have such hypocrisy on this issue. Like somebody just texted me, how many homes does Bernie Sanders have again? It's more than one. But here's something that I noticed when I heard Sean Fain, the president of the UAW talk about executives compensation and how we're not making enough and we're taking steps backwards. I mean, the fact of the matter is the union gave up the defined benefit pension plan in a previous negotiation. Now they want it back. When you give up a benefit like that, you're not going to get it back. That's not realistic. And here's what I'm interested in. You know what was missing from all the coverage of the UAW strike? They never talk about what auto make auto workers make. Now I kept hearing how somebody on the assembly line can't feed their family. Really? What do they make? I kept hearing that Sean Fain kept saying the auto workers have taken three steps backwards. Really? How much do they earn? I know what they want to make. They want a 40 % pay increase and they want to only work four days a week. Now that's a pretty good deal.

Meet Rebecca Whitman, The Magnetic Abundance Mentor

"So I wanna talk to my guest today because everything I talk about each week in the beginning of my show, Rebecca and I are gonna be talking about today. So Rebecca Whitman, she is called the Magnetic Abundance Mentor. I love that. She's an international best -selling author. She graduated with honors from Princeton University. She was awarded Life Coach of the Year and Empowered Woman of the Year by International Association of Top Professionals. LA Weekly Magazine featured her as one of the top seven entrepreneurs to watch in 2023. She hosts the top 1 .5 % globally ranked, balanced, beautiful, and abundant podcasts, which won the Positive Change Award. Her philosophy divides life into seven pillars of abundance, which include spiritual, physical, emotional, romantic, mental, social, and financial. She helps people achieve balance within these seven areas so that they can experience more fun and freedom in life. She has been featured in New York Weekly, Miami Magazine, and LA Weekly Magazines. In addition to her appearances on ABC and CBS, she has guested on over 100 podcasts. She has given keynote speeches at Columbia University and UCLA and has shared virtual stages with renowned thought leaders Grant Cardone, Jack Canfield, and Les Brown. You can find out more about her if you visit her website. It's RebeccaElizabethWhitman .com. Welcome, Rebecca. Thanks so much for being here with me. Thank you so much, Melissa. I'm so excited to be on your show with such a delight to have you on my show a couple weeks ago, and now we get to continue the conversation. Exactly, yeah. So I was on Rebecca's show on her podcast, The Balance Beautiful and Abundant Show, and it aired August 29th. And you guys who are listening, you can find it on any of the podcasting platforms, Apple, whatever you listen to, Spotify, Google, and yeah, you can listen to the show. And it's also, it's on YouTube too, right, Rebecca? I think you're on YouTube also. Yep, YouTube as well as Apple, Spotify, and all the podcast platforms. Absolutely. It was so much fun. It was so much fun. So yeah, so now she's here. So let's talk about you and like what got you into this kind of this abundance mindset, like starting to do this kind of work? What made you want to do it? Were you always doing this your whole life or is this something that you kind of fell into or came to, I should say? Yeah, I moved to Los Angeles 22 years ago to pursue my childhood dream of being an actress. And I had small parts on huge shows like Friends, CSI, and 24, and I never got that big break. So I supported myself at children's acting schools and the children were busy during the day at school. So I would attend spiritual lectures with great teachers of the law of attraction like Michael Beckwith, Esther Hicks, Louise Hay, Wayne Dyer, and I started applying it to my life and I got immediate results. I was making six figures working part time at a kid's acting school. And I didn't quite apply it as well to my love life. I had a series of really painful breakups with emotionally unavailable men. And I even married one thinking he would change. Three years later, I filed for divorce and my marriage was slowly and painfully unraveling as my dad was slowly and painfully dying in a nursing home. And in one of our last conversations, he asked me to write a book. And a few months later, my dad had made his transition and my marriage had dissolved and I was sitting across the desk from my financial planner. And he said, Rebecca, I find it interesting that you are making more money than you've ever made the same year that you lost your marriage and your father. And I think you should write a book. So I wrote a book based on the seven key areas of life, which I now call the seven pillars of abundance, and it's called How to Make a Six Figure Income Working Part Time. And now I help women go from burned out to balanced, beautiful, and abundant. And using these principles, I'm now happily married to my soulmate. And now I just coach women. I have the podcast and I just love this mission, teaching people they don't have to be burned out and overwhelmed to receive abundance in life.

A highlight from Ep379: The 5 Fs Podcasters Shouldn't Neglect - Jerry Dugan

"Be consistent with who you're speaking to, what you're posting off. Still show yourself and be a guest on other shows, especially if the show is like yours, because those listeners will also want more and more variety and they'll come to you for that. Most hosts never achieved the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. What's up, podcaster. It's your host, Adam Adams. And today I'm joined with Jerry Dugan from Beyond the Rut. And Jerry's passionate about supporting business leaders, helping them with different things like work -life balance. So one of the questions that I'm going to ask, does work -life balance even exist? Because I'll tell you it's very polarized. On one end, everybody's like, you have to balance, you have to balance. And then I read this other book that said, no, it's not balanced. It's switch tasking. You go here all the way, then you go here all the way. And then there's other people that say you have to be out of balance for a certain amount of time. So I'm really curious just to start there. Jerry Beyond the Rut supports people with a life worth living in faith, family, and career. So a lot of the listeners that you have are probably around my age and your age that are probably struggling with the work -life balance and making sure that they are putting enough to their faith and their family and their career. And I love that. I want to ask, why do you think work -life balance is real? And what have the other people said? Yes, ultimately, I think they're all saying the same thing. Like if you really break down to what, like, even the folks that say there's no such thing as work -life balance, what they're ultimately saying is like, we make life choices based on our priorities. And when I talk about work -life balance, I'm saying the same thing. One of my hope is that when you're on your deathbed, I already know you're not going to say, man, I wish I did one more launch of my program or man, I wish I was at inbox zero more days in my life. You're going to say things more like, I wish I had one more day to spend with my grandkids and my great grandchildren. I would have loved to have been there for my daughter's wedding or for my son's wedding, whatever it is. And in serving in combat and knowing some folks who worked in hospice care, that is the thing that they hear over and over again, that people wish they had more time to be with the people they love and on the flip side, when they have the people they love, they wish they succeeded more in their career. And so it's like, what if you could win in all of that? What if you could take your career as far as you can and not sacrifice your family at the same time? And so you look at what's important to you and how are your current activities impacting those areas of your life? How are you doing with your family life? You know, okay, work's taking a lot out of me. Okay. Is that a permanent thing or is this a temporary thing? If it's temporary, then you talk it over with your partner and you decide from there, like, okay, yeah, this is temporary. What's the deadline? What does success look like? And what's the bailout trigger that says, all right, we're not hitting these measures doesn't look like we will let's scrap that and go another direction. So that to me, that is why I'm a big fan of work -life balance. It's not just strictly. I spend so many hours at work, so many hours at home. It really is. How is getting out early impacting all the things? Am I going to miss my children's big school events? What's that impact if I do? And what's the message I send? Because I'll tell you from personal experience, I was a lot of kids, superheroes, because I would volunteer my kids' school for a day and their dad had to go to work and it's not the same thing against their dad, because why did the dad go to work? Because he wanted to provide for his family. And so the motivation for a good thing for the family was there, but there wasn't that balance to, I also want to communicate to my child that my child is important. I want to communicate to my partner that she's important. And so it's, how do you win at all those things? And how do you find the right company that will support you as a person while also supporting you and your career growth and getting you to perform well to help the company also succeed? It's like, there's a way to find all that. I want to hear a tip or two. And I'm thinking you and I talked a little bit about this before we first press record. You were talking about the checkbox and a lot of us, we got a checklist and we're checking off all the boxes and it's seems like we're checking off all the boxes. It feels like when we look at the checklist, it's pretty much full, but we might not feel fulfilled even at the expense of checking off lots of boxes. So if that's us, we're listening and we're trying to think of what is it that we think we've had success on paper, but we don't really feel it. We don't really feel like we're everywhere we need to do. What's one or two tips for the listener to be able to feel like they're doing the right thing right now? I think the first thing is you got to know who you are and that's the big broad umbrella piece of advice. Know who you are, what is valuable to you? Like, what do you believe in? What do you not believe in? It's if you believe in respecting the dignity of every person, then that is key. If you value time with family, then your calendar should reflect that. If you value being a supportive person for your family, does that go beyond just monetary support? And so knowing your values, I think is very huge. What is your vision, your purpose in life? I have a couple of mottos I live by. One is the Dugan crest motto. So somebody around the 1500s and it's a miracle that the Dugans are still around because apparently these guys called the Saxons came into like Ireland and almost wiped us all out, but like good Irish people, we stuck around. And so that's not important. The important thing is somebody added to the family crest. Oh man, it's by virtue and valor. So for Tute et valore, and it sounds cooler when it's Latin. I hope I said it right. So that's one thing I live by is am I living my life according to my family's crest motto, am I living by virtue? Am I living by valor being courageous to do what's right when even nobody's looking. But then from there, I had a vision that I wanted my children to live a life that was better than mine, but also be set up to be better adults than I was to have better successes than I did to know who they are and to feel comfortable pursuing their own dreams. Like that's in a written vision that I have tucked away on Evernote somewhere. So you got to have something like that. Like, what do you stand for? What is life like for you when you die? And I love talking about these things called the five Fs, your faith, your family, your fitness, your finances, and your own future growth or possibilities. Like looking at your life through those lenses, what does success look like for you? So I guess that's the second one is defining a second, Jerry. I missed an F F that I got faith. I got family. I got finances. I got fitness. And what did I miss? Emily, faith, finances, and fitness, future possibilities, future possibilities, always growing to be better today than you were yesterday. And then what's that future state of yourself you'd like to become. And so being a constant learner is that future possibilities. One reading books that are outside your usual norm, listening to podcasts that are outside your norm, being open to ideas that are not typically in your bucket or wheelhouse either a, to see how your own ideas and beliefs stack up, because sometimes like I myself had gone through life and realized, oh wow, I held onto this belief and I met three people who completely challenged that is my belief wrong or is it just not as strong as I thought it was, is there more context? I needed to add. And, and so sometimes I realized I was completely wrong about something. And other times I realized, oh, I was missing a lot of context here. I believe this, but only in this context, because I also believe this and my belief should not undermine somebody else's right to be who they are. And so it's like, oh yeah, okay. I can wrap my head around that. And I can be a decent person in my community that way. And so that, yeah, the future possibility is that a bit more unpacked, I should have put that in. Have you ever heard of, I think it's Gino Wickman and I hope I'm not wrong. And he wrote like three books. One was like, I'm going to just type in Gino Wickman. This is going to be the easy way. Then I'll sound so smart instead of dumb Gino Wick man. All right. So he wrote three books. Yes. Yes. What the heck is E O S he wrote traction and he wrote what it's not showing me the last one traction, what the heck is EOS and there's another one called rocket fuel. Okay. So these three books are interesting and it kind of is what you're talking about, but in more of a business category. And so I think this is really great to extract it and bring us to the listener in rocket fuel, what the heck is EOS and traction, ultimately what Gino Wickman talks about is your business should have a culture or have values that you all live by. And so it's interesting because when we look at all of the things that we can value, let's just pretend that I don't know the number. I'm just going to say that it's 20 values. There's 20 things that are good. And most people would agree with 18 or 19 of them. So one would be honesty, but at what expense are we going to be rude and honest? Another one might be politeness. Another one might be doing the right thing. Even when it hurts, you kind of mentioned your integrity. Even when people are not looking, am I going to be doing this with my family crest and everything? So the Gino Wickman also talks about like all of these things that we can value. And most of them are important to everyone. Honesty, of course, that sounds right, but not everybody puts that at the top of their value. Maybe they put discretion, maybe they put kindness above it, or maybe they put honesty above kindness and et cetera, et cetera, they might put doing the right thing, even when it hurts as one of the top values. And so in RocketFuel and EOS and Traction, Gino talks about how we need to build our team, our company culture around where all of us agree on these main values. Like we value making money, we value serving the client, we value X, Y, or Z. All of them are good, but which one is in the hierarchy? And so when I'm hearing you, you basically gave me two things. The first one is you got to know who you are. You got to know your culture. You got to know your values. What do you believe in? And you talked about by virtue and valor. What do you believe in? What matters to you? And then you focus on it and you bring people along. And the second one is a written vision. Like you actually write down the vision where you put in faith, family, finances, fitness, and future possibilities, and you figure out how are you doing these? How does this work for you? And you write it down because everybody's vision, like a fingerprint has to be different. Everybody's culture or their values have to be a little bit different, how they put them. And for you, you're saying a way that you can check off the boxes is to just know exactly what the heck the boxes are in the first place. Know which things matter to you and get rid of the rest. So you can really focus on those. And I thought that was really interesting because not only can we do it in our business, we can do it on our podcast. And as you've illustrated, we can do it with our family, with our own lives, our personal lives. So I thought that was really, really beautiful. I appreciate you going into that before we move on to anything, something that I missed or something else you want to share about being able to check off those boxes and feel really good about it, even that person who might be listening might feel like it looks like they're checked off, but they don't feel completely fulfilled. Yeah. Similarly to how business, they have their strategic plan that pushes them and they make big decisions off of that. Does this activity support the strategic initiative of this organization? And the answer is yes, they keep pushing forward with some adjustments. If it doesn't, they're like, well, then why are we doing that? Let's cut that out and let's restructure and reorganize. And it's cool to see that there are these business and even podcasting principles and practices that help us create a better podcast, create a better business, and we don't realize how easily we can just transfer those same skill sets into our very lives. And so it's the same thing. You know, how many people do we know who are physicians who hate being a physician? I can think of two or three or somebody who became a lawyer because the money was good and they quit being a lawyer because they realized that wasn't fulfilling for them or me, I left my corporate job because I realized I didn't want to start all over again and build something that belonged to somebody else and it was time to go after my dreams. So even my mom like kept encouraging me to become a doctor. I was a pre -med student. I'm not a doctor now because I did not do well as a pre -med student, but I realized later on it's because that was never my dream. That was my mom's dream. She wanted me to be a doctor. She wanted to be able to live vicariously through me and what she wanted success to be, and once I realized, Oh gosh, I don't want to be a doctor. What do I want to be? Of course, now it took a 10 year journey for me to realize what I did want to be, but I got there, man. That's that's important. So anyway, that was it. Yeah. You're willing to walk away from something really good stuff. I want to move into just your podcast journey now for the listener. I'll point out a couple of things that I'm seeing with your podcast. Hey, I think it, haven't you been doing it for like eight years? Yeah, this particular year, eight years. Yeah. Amazing. So with eight years, over 400 episodes and a lot of traction, not going back to Gina Wickman, a lot of traction on your podcast success, I think that we've got a couple of listeners that haven't quite been doing it for eight years, they may have been doing it for a year or two, they're new. And they would like to have the type of success that you've got with your podcast. So I'm like to get a couple of takeaways, what you've done, what you've learned, what you would do differently. First, a quick word from our sponsor, but when we get back, I really want you to focus on what made your podcast successful so that the listeners podcasts can also be successful. We'll be right back. Hey, my friend, as you know, this episode is sponsored by my company, growyourshow .com. We want you to be able to have the best tools at your disposal without costing you a whole arm and a leg. So right now you can get a free list of vetted equipment that like mics, mixers, webcams, sound treatment, editing software, everything that you need. I created the whole PDF with direct purchase links, just to save you time and money to help it be more convenient for you. So this free PDF will help you skip all the guesswork. If it's on there, it's vetted and approved by yours truly. And if it's not on there, it's probably not worth the money. So go ahead and get yours at growyourshow .com forward slash PDF. Let's get back into the show. We're back with Jerry Dugan. And we've talked a little bit about work -life balance, helping leaders with work -life balance, making sure that you're checking all the boxes and feeling fulfilled and the five F's and his family crest, which I don't even remember what it said in Latin. I think it was Latin, but it really means by virtue and valor. And I wanted to talk about now, how is his podcast so fricking well known and he's doing a great job. He's getting a lot of success through the podcast. And hopefully you'll be able to take away a couple of things that can support you in a successful podcast as well. Jerry, what do you think made your podcast? Yeah, a lot of what I'm seeing really is in the last year, year and a half, really. So I jokingly tell folks, but I'm not joking that it seems like I did year one, seven times, and then finally I had year eight happen all at once. So it's no overnight success kind of thing. I think the first thing that really helped was when there was a team of three of us. So we started off with three of us. We all agreed on one thing other than the name of the show. And that was the avatar of the show. So we have an avatar that we named AJ. He's 35 years old, married to his college sweetheart. He has two kids that they both have together. One's in elementary school. One's in middle school. AJ has a mid -level leadership career going on with a corporation in a metro area. And got the car, got the house, got the six figure income, but feels stuck in life. And so from there, we start to unravel how AJ feels stuck. There's the commute to work. There's the no real future in the job he's in. Not really making any progress. Wants to be a good family man when he gets home, but he's just drained of energy. And this cycle is putting a strain on his marriage. The kids feel like he doesn't love him, which is so far from the truth. So how does AJ live the life that he really wanted to live in his faith, in his family, in his fitness, finances, and his future? And so that's what we did when we came together to start the show. Now where we had a lot of weak spots, and I feel we did the first seven years over and over again, was that when you listened to the early episodes, we were all over the place, we didn't really stick to that mantra. Like what does AJ really need? And I hate to say it, but it wasn't until like the other two guys quit from the show that I realized, Oh, we're so far from what we wanted to do, who we wanted to help. And so how do I get there? And so year six, really going into year seven was how do I niche this down? I worked with a couple of different groups that really helped me start to niche that down. Jerry, you're helping specifically this demographic. You're helping them specifically with things like work -life balance and really having a mapped out future or a vision for their future focus on that. Okay. What kind of guests should I have? And so this kind of leads into the second one, which was that pairing down that niching down. So the first one was having that vision of who I wanted to help. The second one was really paring down and niching down. How am I going to help AJ? And once I started to see that a bunch of doors opened up and the third thing was I needed to get the word out there. So the marketing piece, I threw stuff out there for the first seven years, but really it's in this last year that I've been more intentional about it. The posts that I put out there on social media are aimed at AJ. The shows I appear on are aimed at AJ and you know, as that guest appearance on other shows, I think so far in the last 10 months, I've been on almost 70 other podcasts and to the point where now I'm starting to feel like I'm in alternate realities down. Like, how do I know Adam Adams? Oh yeah, I was on his show. All right, there we go. We talked about this, this, and this, or how do I know, Deirdre? Oh yeah, I'm here, here and here. It's just all that starting to overlap. But anyway, those would be the big three is know who you're serving. The second thing is truly niche down. Even if you have a lot of passions, interests, try to stick to one thing and just kind of lit little dose of yourself, sprinkle into your episodes. That way people know what they're getting when they come to your show. And then the third thing, I know I just said it. Marketing.

Good morning to all of you Cafe Bitcoiners. Good morning, Peter. Good morning, Ant, Dombey, Jacob, Wade, everybody else in the audience, all the loyal listeners. If you're new, we play that song at the beginning of every show. I highly encourage you to go look up the words and read the words to that song. It's mind blowing. Welcome back, Ant. Thank you. Thank you. I see you guys held it down. Yeah, we were all sad. We missed you. Oh, I'm really sure. I had to explain you to my sisters yesterday, Ant. Oh, I'm sure that went well. You were the technical guy, that's the other technical guy who does other technical things and has other technical knowledge. All the technicals. We did have like the Wicked show yesterday, was it yesterday? I don't know. We had a moment where the scale was up, came up and she was like, I have a wicked question. And then that was KSD. It great. was All right. You're listening to Cafe Bitcoin. This is episode four hundred and thirty eight. Shout outs to our sponsors on Fountain Nosterness. Our mission for this show is to provide the signal in a sea of noise, teach the other seven billion people on this planet why there is hope because of this bright orange future that we call Bitcoin. Today, again, we're going to try and discuss near perfect energy arbitrage. I've been meaning to do that for three different episodes now. We never actually get to it because the content is so dang good. The questions are good. The discussions are good. Hopefully we get that today. There's also a bunch of nonsense that the lizards are up to that I think needs to be highlighted. We shine lights on lizards and lizards doing lizard things. And it's I hope it helps you guys. Peter. Speaking of lizards, my banking saga continued. So, you know, yesterday I was talking about having trouble transferring money in my account being frozen, et cetera, et cetera. I thought, well, I'll just go into the bank, get out cash, and then I'll go make the deposit into my friend's account. Right. So I put my tweet up in the nest. I'm just going to it's real quick. I'm just going to read it. I said friend needed financial support, went to their bank with cash to deposit. Teller, we don't take cash. Me, what? Teller, sorry. Me, manager? Manager, we don't take cash. Random patron looks at me and mouths, what the fuck? Me, thank God. I literally said this. I said, thank God for Bitcoin. I walked out of the place. My friend, thanks for the BTC. You said that in a bank, Peter. What? You said that in a bank, Peter? Yeah. You're on the list. Hell yeah. You're on the list. That's like saying bomb on a plane. I looked at this lady, this manager, I looked at her. I was like, what the fuck is cash for? She goes, well, you can go buy stuff. I said, you're a bank. You don't take cash? No, thank God for Bitcoin. I fucking walked out. I couldn't believe it. You're all on a list. Every single one of you. It's OK, Peter. I got on the list a long time ago. I was on a phone call with my bank a long time ago and it was just like a lowly customer support person. And I was like new in Bitcoin, like brand new and like, you know, feeling it. And I was like, this is why y 'all are going down. You see, this is why Bitcoin is going to take you all out. So I'm sure I'm on the list as well. OK, later today, second half of the show, we've got Eric Kaysen joining us. Looking forward to that. That dude, he's one of my favorites. He's an extremely passionate Bitcoiner and deep thinker, in my opinion. He says some stuff that is I mean, there's a lot of edgy people in Bitcoin that are willing to say and call out lizard nonsense. Eric pulls no punches, man. This dude, when he's laying it down, I'm like looking around the room thinking, are any of these guys that are in here fed? Because he's definitely on the list. And so is everybody in this room. Oh, I'm sure we've had feds in this room for a long time now. Yeah, probably. I mean, these are all recorded, right? So, yeah, I guess they let it back. Yep, yep, pretty much. Good morning. They won't get the emojis, though. Yeah, screw them. I wish these guys would do something illegal. Mike Hobart, good morning. Mickey Koss, good morning. Terrence Yang, good morning. Oh, by the way, congratulations, Terrence. Terrence was on Bloomberg again. Dang. Thank you. Thank you. He's a regular now. Whenever they want to know something about Bitcoin, they call Terrence Yang. Your star's rising, Terrence. And Terrence is like, oh my God. And Terrence is like, hang on one second. I got to hang on one second. I got to park this dim sum cart so I can go get into a nice background place and do my interview with you guys. Exactly. Exactly, due to my crappy or just something's not great with faces for my audio, so it doesn't do noise suppression. So but it's motivating me to take a walk. So instead of you guys listening to the piano music from the hotel again. As long as you don't walk into that ballet center again, Terrence. I think that was Beetlejuice. I did not record. Terrence, if you don't mind me asking, since I didn't see the Bloomberg appearance, what did they ask you about? Did they ask you about any of your opinions on the Binance situation or is it just strictly Bitcoin and price? A little bit Binance. It was price, not as much price this time. I think I'm not sure why, but it was more about ETF kind of timing. And we got into spot versus futures of the SEC loss badly against Grayscale. So actual signal then, that's good. Allegedly, yeah. No, they ask good questions. That's good questions. And then talked about some tax stuff, stuff like that. Terrence, you were telling them how it's going to go down this year. That's interesting. How did they react to that? I did point out that 75 % of quote unquote experts surveyed said that Bitcoin ETF will be approved by year end, which I don't agree with. Yeah. Who are these experts? Are they the writers that coined it? These crypto people, right, because sometimes our stars do align a little bit with the crypto people short term. So their PR machine is formidable. So I think they just go around and random crypto experts opine on Bitcoin ETF timing based on their chat TBT law degrees or whatever. Here's a big wrench, Terrence, and you have a law degree, so you can tell me if this is possible. This may throw a wrench into the some of the bets on the side chains. What is it possible for the SEC to approve Grayscale, but with a go live date that's next year or far out or some kind of ambiguous, like, yeah, it's approved conditionally with this. And then people, well, it wasn't approved. It was approved. That I don't know, but typically they just kind of approve, delay or deny. And then when they approve, you just have to do all the paperwork. It's like they're always approved with conditions. Everything the government does or lawyers do. And now you're talking about government lawyers. So every approval is like if you meet the, you know, registration requirements, blah, blah, blah, you can do it. Go ahead and file the paperwork and, you know, give us comfort that you're compliant. Yeah, but they can attach conditions like, OK, so you're saying you're doing the surveillance sharing agreement. We are only doing this if that actually gets signed is, you know, not clear that that signed it, blah, blah, blah. They might add some details. I think that's possible. I don't actually know that much about ETF approvals, but that should be how it goes. It's kind of based on all the other stuff that government regulators tend to do. Yeah, because that's that's my new thing is, is this is backed by no for the listeners, no legal knowledge whatsoever, zero. But if they can find a way to approve Grayskills, put a timing on it that somehow screws them and lets BlackRock, whoever's first in line for the ETF, go live first. That's what I see them do. Yeah, that's possible. I feel like they're not that explicit. Like, OK, so a couple of things. One, if you're a Gensler, political animal, Bitcoiner, allegedly, you would probably want to do what? Delay approval just because, you know, hurts to lose three to zero in the D .C. In or batches dispersed would be one of the big four. It doesn't have to be BlackRock, right? Because the public perception, at least in some corners of the universe, they tend to think that BlackRock is super evil because they're so big, totally misunderstanding how asset managers work. But anyway, you might pick one of the big four, the new one being Franklin Templeton, 1 trillion .4 AUM, I think Invesco is like 1 .6, Fidelity and BlackRock are orders of magnitude. So one of those big four. Maybe do it in batches, politically you might do, I hate to say it, Cassie Wedge from ARK because she's a woman and she's very vocal.

A highlight from SPECIAL REPORT: THE SBF TRIAL 9-19 Update

"Welcome to the SBF trial, a Coindesk podcast network newsletter bringing you daily insights from inside the courtroom where Sam Bankman -Fried will try to stay out of prison. Follow the Coindesk podcast network to get the audio each morning with content from the Coindesk regulation team and voiced by Wondercraft AI. Sam Bankman -Fried stands accused of committing wire fraud and conspiracy to commit several other types of frauds. His once mighty crypto exchange FTX collapsed in dramatic fashion nearly a year ago shedding billions in value and in two weeks he'll begin his effort to convince a jury of his peers that he didn't commit any of many alleged crimes while running the company. If convicted of even one of the charges Bankman -Fried faces years in a federal prison. If convicted of all of the charges he could well spend decades if not the rest of his life behind bars but there are some nuances here. The maximum prison sentences are just guidelines and like any criminal defendant Bankman -Fried is innocent until proven guilty even if the evidence made public so far seems damning. This discussion itself may be premature given his trial hasn't even begun yet. So how did we get here? Samuel Bankman -Fried who is 31 years old was arrested last December a few short weeks after his empire filed for bankruptcy and ejected the Stanford and Jane Street alum who helmed it. Federal prosecutors in the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York filed an initial indictment bringing 8 charges including wire fraud and conspiring to commit securities fraud, commodities fraud and launder money. They later filed a set of superseding indictments which the defense team led by famed attorneys Mark Cohen and Christian Everdell successfully argued can't be brought at this time due to international extradition treaty obligations. A second trial is tentatively scheduled for next year to address these charges. Over the estimated six -week trial prosecutors will place members of the FTX inner circle including former Alameda research CEO Caroline Ellison, former FTX chief technology officer and co -founder Gary Wang and former FTX engineering director Nishad Singh on the stand to testify against their former colleague, boss and roommate. They'll present information from FTX's systems and balance sheets and share audio recordings over the course of the trial all while the defense tries to poke holes in the case. In the lead -up these teams of attorneys will try to find 10 or 12 jurors out of a selection of hundreds most sympathetic to their case. Once Sam Bankman -Fried's criminal trial begins putting these months of paperwork docket fights behind us his fate will hinge on his jury's opinion. Is the former FTX CEO a crypto criminal or perhaps merely a victim of circumstance? They'll have to decide based on the facts of the case but their ranks haven't been filled quite yet. Right now the lawyers are debating how to determine who can make that decision. The process of jury selection heated up late last week after government lawyers blasted the defense team's proposed questions. A good number of them could influence potential jurors. They argued in a letter to Judge Lewis Kaplan. Some were too prying, others too specific the feds said. A handful are a thinly veiled attempt to advance a defense narrative the government claimed. Many of the questions they took umbrage with shared a common theme. They were about appearances. Sam Bankman -Fried is or was a master of appearances. From the first time this author spotted the sneakers and shorts wearing wild -haired billionaire on a yacht in To his final television interviews preceding his arrest the crypto wunderkind cultivated perceptions. He shuffled between personas that bolstered this image of approachable greatness. Sam was the guy you could trust to get it right even though he couldn't tie his dress shoes. I think it's important for people to think I look crazy the government quoted Sam as saying his crazy playing video games during interviews dressing like a dorm room schlub sleeping on a beanbag chair and oh yeah those disheveled curls made his greatness speaking on Capitol Hill pioneering massive philanthropic endeavors and oh yeah the crypto exchange FTX all the greater. But the government doesn't want to let the defense highlight any of that before the trial begins. They're calling on Judge Kaplan to reject jury questions that probe the righteousness of philanthropic philosophies and campaign finance. Sam's ADHD should be left off the table they say and don't even think about interrogating jurors FTX specific opinions. Real or engineered, Sam's game of perceptions has ended. He'll begin the trial as a well -dressed defendant just like any other. The government doesn't want his old image to dictate who might eventually put him in a khaki jumpsuit. We'll be in the courthouse each and every day of this trial bringing you news as it happens and keeping you updated. Want to follow along? Sign up for Coindesk's new daily newsletter, the SBF trial, bringing you insights from the courthouse and around the case. You can get the podcast each day right here by following the Coindesk podcast network. Thanks for listening.

A highlight from Marriage as Completion: Gender Roles, Part 1

"Welcome to Gospel in Life. The power of marriage is that it is a reflection of the gospel. Today Tim Keller explores how marriage can help us more deeply understand Christ's love for us and how Christ's love for us can completely transform our marriages. We're looking tonight at a subject that many of you are going to say, why did you choose that subject? And it's just like the mountain climber. The same reason the mountain climber climbs the mountain because it's there. Why are we choosing the subject we're choosing tonight? Because it's there. Because the Bible is God's self -disclosure. It's the written word of God and everything that is stated there, whether or not it happens to be controversial at this little point in time and space or not, we have to digest it, we have to understand it and so tonight we're going to look again at this passage on marriage that we've been seeing for, this is the seventh week now. We're looking at Ephesians 5 verses 21 to 32. But tonight we're especially going to look at this major issue where it says wives submit to your husbands and husbands you're the head of the wife. What does that mean? What does that mean? Finally tonight we look at it, it's an immensely complicated subject and we're going to look at it. So let's first of all read the passage, Ephesians 5 verses 21 to 32 and then we tackle. Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the savior. Now as the church submits to Christ so wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands love your wives just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word and to present her to himself as a radiant church without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish but holy and blameless. In this same way husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all no one ever hated his own body but he feeds and cares for it just as Christ does the church for we are members of his body. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife and the two will become one flesh. This is a profound mystery but I am talking about Christ and the church. However each one of you should also love his wife as he loves himself and the wife must respect her husband. This is God's word but we're going to especially look tonight at verse 22. Wives submit to your husbands as to the Lord for the husband is head of the wife as Christ is head of the church. What does that mean? Now there's a couple ways to put this. One of the ways is to ask the question that we are addressing in this verse is to say is there any differentiation between the roles and obligations of a husband and wife in marriage? I think I mentioned last week that years ago the marriage vows that were in the average church ceremony were different. Usually what the wife and the husband were asked to do were different. Different words were used. Today of course those vows are absolutely identical. The same words and yet every single place you come to in the scripture you see there's a differentiation. So the first question is, is there a differentiation? Is there an authority structure? What does it mean when it says wives submit to your husbands when it says husbands your head of the wife? Now we tackle the issue because it's there but you have to keep something in mind because all night especially as we as we look at this thing Christianity depending on the culture that it's sitting in can be either radically liberal subversive or horribly fascist reactionary in its appearance. See for example in communist countries the church has always been considered radically subversive why? Because it's subversive. The communist state is very conservative and the church was something that it tried to deal with but it was subversive because the church has always questioned or always not just questioned has always challenged the idea that the state is the final arbiter of moral issues and my values. The church has always said the state is not the final author and an arbiter of moral values it's God and so in those countries where you have super conservative state governments and state the church looks radically subversive but in this country for example very often Christianity looks reactionary and conservative. You know why? Because in this country the church is also challenging the idea that the individual is the final arbiter of moral values. The church has always said no the individual feelings and conscience nor the state. See the church looks right wing to the left and left wing to the right that's the way it is because that's the way it ought to be if Christianity is actual truth. If it's absolute truth if it's if it's revelation from God. If that's you see Christianity isn't to the left or to the right it's from above. It's not it doesn't arise out of the human spectrum it settles down into the human spectrum of thought and if it's true that it's from above then it's natural that it doesn't actually fit any particular ideology and every ideology is going to be deeply suspicious of it. So on the one hand you have what Paul says about women who in many many in many cultures in many societies is considered radically subversive and certainly you know that. In many societies when Paul for example Paul originally taught this divine teaching about the roles of men and women into an Asian society an oriental society that's what that's what that area was and of course because of the very rigid understanding of the roles of men and women in those situations the Christian truth was considered tremendously subversive that's why when you go to 1 Corinthians 11 you see Paul saying to the women when you pray and speak in church make sure you wear a veil. He's talking to married women why well see in that time and place when a woman was married she was completely veiled you still see that in many oriental countries in many Eastern countries she was completely veiled that showed that she belonged totally to her husband.

And then we also talk about Oliver Anthony, who I call a ginger Bernie Sanders with a banjo. Thought Crimes, where we say things that you're not even allowed to think in Western society. This is your warning. I'm just warning you that, yes, there is things in this episode that are not always appropriate for homeschoolers. Email us as always freedom at charliekirk .com and get involved with Turning Point USA at tpusa .com. That is tpusa .com. Buckle up, everybody. Here we go. Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campuses. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House, folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to tonight's edition, this week's edition of Thought Crime. Are you ready to commit thought crime? Because we've got a lot. Let's go around the horn. I'm not even sure because we got a lot of craziness going on right now. Our gas prices are up almost a full dollar here since last week, almost. And I was in California about a week ago. And I think are you guys hitting about six, almost $6 a gallon right now? Yeah, we are. Yeah, it's about five. How do you do it? I mean, honestly, Santa Barbara is a small town, so we don't drive a whole bunch. We don't feel it as much as probably like, you know, our Los Angeles friends. But I mean, at the end of the day, I mean, California is and actually this, this includes Arizona, Nevada, I believe, Washington and Oregon are considered the same sort of gas island. So they are as it has to do with where the oil comes from. It has to do with where they're getting refined. California has all these special additives and regulations that the refineries, these these benchmarks that refineries need to hit. So it can only come from certain refineries. So it limits the supply even more. It's a whole problem. So Charlie will be here in a little bit. He's at the Pastor Summit right now. He's dealing with some stuff. He's taking care of business on assignment, of course, for Turning Point USA, the faith coalition. But we're here. We're going to hold down the fort until Charlie returns. So shoot us your emails freedom at Charlie kirk .com. Let's get into the first topic here. This one, I think we've all talked about it, but we haven't all mentioned it together. This one, the the revenge or should we say the elegy for Willard Romney? Willard Mitt Romney has announced he's quitting the Senate total rage quit right before the 2024 election. So he's going to serve out the remainder of his term. And of course, as befits his character, he's riding off into the sunset by having the globalists at the Atlantic publish a completely obnoxious passive aggressive interview, trashing his colleagues, trashing Trump, trashing the GOP base. So what is the final word on the GOP 2012 standard bearer, the man who was the nominee for president in 2012? And, Blake, I think you actually have an excerpt from the from this article that's by McKay Coppins in the Atlantic. Oh, well, yeah, exactly, Jack. It's it's amazing. So, of course, he's everything about Romney is, you know, the supposed like, you know, politeness and decorum and all the damage that Trump does to our democracy by being always the last Boy Scout. Yeah, yeah, the last Boy Scout. So naturally, what he does is he announces he's retiring. And then, you know, in perfect timing with it, McKay Coppins has this biography that he's putting out that's, you know, all about Romney and has all these like data points in it. And he's basically just like Romney doing like a drive by shooting on other members of the Republican Party as he leaves. Let's see, like one of the lines from it. This is a summary as Axios summarizes it helpfully for us. Romney shares a unique disgust for senators Josh Hawley of Missouri and Ted Cruz of Texas, who he thought were too smart to believe Trump won the 2020 election. But, quote, put politics above the interests of liberal democracy and the Constitution. And then the even wilder one is for Senator J .D. Vance of Ohio. He says, quote, I don't know that I can disrespect someone more than J .D. Vance. That is a direct quote from Senator Romney describing Senator Vance, who he still has to, you know, share a Senate chamber with for the next year before he actually quits. But, you know, J .D., I mean, can can someone explain what what what is J .D. Vance done in his time in the Senate that's been so ill reputable? It could. Does anyone have what when he went to East Palestine and it seems it seems his crime is that went on there? I'm trying to figure this out. It seems his crime is that, you know, J .D. Vance came out of Ohio. He went to Yale, I believe it was. And then he was in finance and was, you know, and then wrote his memoir, which was very well received. And he's this up and comer on the coast. And then I guess he moved back to Ohio, started doing too many appearances on Tucker Carlson tonight. And like, according to Romney, it was like the transformation was just was just too jarring, like it was too too much of a transformation for for Mr. Romney, who himself has basically transmuted into this like Democrat, I guess. But that doesn't count. This is an interesting this is an interesting take on on all of it. And Andrew, maybe you can give us a sense of it, because what I think that Romney is really upset about here is that he's considering J .D. Vance a class a class traitor. He's calling him a class traitor and saying, look, you're allowed to make money in finance. You're allowed to make go to Yale. You're allowed to go to the great schools. But the one thing and you're certainly allowed to run for the Senate. But the one thing you're not allowed to do is actually go out to the people of your state, listen to the their interests and listen to their issues and then grow and go and try to actually represent them in the United States Senate. This I is think class traitor. I think that's really smart framing, Jack, because at some level, a lot of this is much more about vibe. It's much more about what Mitt Romney thinks is classy versus gross or respectable versus, you know, essentially untoward and beyond the pale. Right. So it's all based on his own little framework of of class structure, of decorum, those sorts of things. So it says here in this, he says he was also highly critical of Senator J .D. Vance, Republican of Ohio, who reinvented his persona to become a Trump acolyte after publishing a bestselling memoir, Hillbilly Elegy about the working class that Romney loved. So Romney loved the book. So at some level, I think it was just like, so I love this book. And how can this kind of become like a Trump bootlicker? Go ahead. Right. So I can there's there and just real quickly, it's kind of like because in the book, J .D. Vance's conclusions, I would say I don't offer this as criticism. I just say it's sort of it's an evolution on J .D. Vance's part because he sort of just says in the book, well, that that sort of that blase classic Republican line of, you know, and everybody just needs to pull themselves up by their bootstraps. I can do it. So can you. And we should cut taxes for big businesses and the one percent pays most of the income tax and that that's kind of it. And then when he went to actually run for office and started really engaging with people politically, that's when he shifted, not socially. Right. But he shifted economically to become more of a populist. Blake, what you're saying? Well, what's so telling in this article is like some of the just a little specific anecdotes that it does pick. And I almost wonder if Coppins is like subtly trolling Romney. Apparently Romney lives by himself and his family in D .C. It mentions let me get let me get the line here. It talks about his his his pad that he lives in. And it says the place had not been Romney's first choice for Washington residents when he was elected in twenty eighteen. He'd had his eye on a newly remodeled condo at the Watergate with glittering views of the Potomac. His wife, Ann, fell in love with the place, but his soon to be staffers and colleagues warned him about the commute, which, by the way, it's like a mile and a half to the Capitol. So he grudgingly chose practicality over luxury and settled for the two point four million dollar townhouse instead. And then, of course, this is not good enough for for Ann. So she never visits him when he's in D .C. So it turns into a gross bachelor pad that has it mentions there's crumbs everywhere.

A highlight from ELIZABETH WARREN RAMPS UP ANTI CRYPTO PLANS WITH SEC GARY GENSLER - DEUTSCHE BANK CRYPTO CUSTODY

"Welcome back to the Thinking Crypto Podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here, please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google, please leave a five star rating and review. It supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well, folks, we've got big news that Senator Elizabeth Warren has added nine new co -sponsors to her anti -crypto bill. They're all Democrats, those co -sponsors. This has not changed the trajectory of the bill as most of these co -signers were expected. This is being reported by Taylor Barr of the Digital Chamber of Commerce. And you know, it's not a surprise that they're all Democrats, but these Democrats got to get their act together. Many of them are not going to be reelected because of this stance on crypto, in addition to other political issues. And I'm not here to say Democrats are worse than Republicans or Republicans are better, right? I'm pretty much an independent and I look at who's the best candidate from that standpoint. But the Biden administration and many Democrats are really, really screwing themselves over. Now I want to be fair, there are many Democrats who are pro -crypto, right? We've seen Richie Torres, Ro Khanna, and a bunch of others who have been doing a great job. The problem is Senator Elizabeth Warren's voice tends to drown out many of the other Democrats. And she has a large following, right? Because of other issues that she covers. But we know she's corrupt and she's been doing a lot of backdoor dealings with scumbag regulator Gary Gensler. We know she sends him the questions and answers ahead of hearings. We know she's been working with him to try to get the crypto market in a mess. We saw that Promethium was a plant by Gary Gensler and the SEC. And I think Elizabeth Warren certainly helped with that. Elizabeth Warren also contributed to the bank runs that were happening early in 2023. It started with banks that were pro -crypto, of course, and then that domino effect happened where you had a whole bunch of different banks started collapsing. So I don't trust Elizabeth Warren. I don't think ultimately she's going to win anything here against crypto. The most she may do is slow us down. But crypto is going to outlast her and corrupt scumbag regulator Gary Gensler. But we do have to make sure that we keep fighting and we spread the facts. This is why I always tell you guys, contact your representatives, use Twitter and social media to your advantage, make content and much more. We can drown out all of her tweets and all of her things about crypto. And we see the narratives around Gary Gensler collapsing, his false narratives, and he's getting exposed in court. So the more Gary Gensler takes defeat, the more Elizabeth Warren's going to lose wind in her sails to back Gary Gensler and to say, oh, you see all these crypto things are all scams when the courts are disagreeing with Gary Gensler and the SEC. But we've got to be vigilant. We've got to watch out here. She's certainly not giving up. She's up to something. But we're ultimately going to win the war, folks, and crypto is going to outlast both her and Gary Gensler. Now speaking of Gary Gensler, some of you may have seen this video and it's hard to convey this on the podcast, those of you listening on Spotify and Apple and Google. But Gary was interviewed by Brooke Masters, who is a journalist at the Financial Times. And Gary was stating his false narratives and lies, right? He was saying, crypto, these guys don't abide by the law, there's hucksters, there's scammers, the same old bullshit, talking points. But surprisingly, the journalist, the interviewer responds saying, they seem to be finding some sympathetic judges, referring to the SEC's recent court losses to Ripple and Grayscale. Then she said, so you got to watch out there. And if you saw Gary Gensler's face, I mean, those of you watching the YouTube video, just look at his face. This is going to become a meme. He just, he didn't say anything in response to her. It was like this awkward silence and his face just tells it all like, he was not expecting that. And I'm sure it cut him deep. But even, you know, journalists and mainstream media are recognizing this guy is blowing out hot air. Like you can say all those things, but the reality of the situation is you just took a big loss with Grayscale and the judges are ripping you apart. And you took a big loss in the Ripple lawsuit, and it looks like the SEC is going to take a loss in the Coinbase lawsuit. So once again, the optics and narratives are falling apart, and this is what I've been telling you guys. A big part of politics is optics. And he can shout on the top of the hill that, oh yeah, there's all hucksters, scammers, and it's all securities, but the courts are disagreeing and that's where we're going to win. Now, quick word from our sponsor, and that is Uphold, which makes crypto investing easy. Uphold is a great platform that I've been using since 2017. They have 10 plus million users, 250 plus cryptocurrencies, and they're available in 150 countries. Another cool feature is you can trade precious metals on this platform, as well as 37 Fiat currencies. You can easily swap between those respective asset classes, Fiat, precious metals and crypto. So it's pretty incredible. No other exchange offers this type of functionality. So if you'd like to learn more, please visit the link in the description. All right, folks, we also got news here that John Deaton, yes, our friend John Deaton, who has been fighting on behalf of the 75 ,000 XRP holders, well in the library appeal, remember library is now appealing the ruling, given that there's updated case law with Ripple, John Deaton has filed his notice of appearance on behalf of Amicus Curae Naomi Brockwell. So if you remember Naomi Brockwell, she served as Amicus Curae, where she was stating that how she was using the library platform to earn LBC tokens and much more. I was also, you know, using the platform the same way. We know the SEC unfairly attacked the library here, but it's all, you know, the bullshit from Gary Gensler just attacking the market, not providing any guidance, not trying to work with the market. And even, you know, commissioners at the SEC, such as Hester Peirce and Mark Ueda have been dissenting on all these actions. So it's pretty clear what's happening. Now yesterday, we talked about the SEC attacking Stoner Cats NFTs, which was founded by Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher. And we know it's just unfair, right? We talked about it. It's like, well, you can't release artwork anymore. What about baseball cards and sports cards, right? Are those all securities now? It's just ridiculous. Well, Stuart Eldoradi, chief legal officer at Ripple, he weighed in on the SEC's decision saying, I don't know all the facts here, but I do know that a settlement to avoid a crushing SEC process without admitting or denying anything is binding on no one. A cynic would call it a PR stunt. What matters is that when seriously challenged in court, the SEC continues to lose. He's absolutely right. But folks, as we've been talking about for years now, the ultimate goal here is Gary Gensler has been weaponized. He's a puppet on strings so that he can come in and kill these crypto startups so that his big Wall Street buddies and banking cartel buddies can come in and take over. Here's another prime example, Deutsche Bank to hold crypto for institutional clients. Well, look at that, folks. Gary says there's only hucksters, scammers, and fraudsters in this market. Does that include Deutsche Bank? Does that include BNY Mellon, Fidelity, BlackRock, JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, right? All of them are getting involved in crypto in one way or the other. So let me give you the details here, folks. Deutsche Bank has partnered with Swiss crypto firm Taurus to provide custody services for institutional clients, cryptocurrencies, and tokenized assets. Taurus said in a statement on Thursday, the partnership means Deutsche Bank will for the number cryptocurrencies of for its clients, as well as tokenized versions of traditional financial assets, a Deutsche Bank spokesperson said, folks, see what's happening. Always watch what they do, not what they say, right? If you were only listening to the talking points of Elizabeth Warren and Gary Gensler, you may be scared, right? Let's say you're not well -researched, not well -versed. You don't listen to the Thinking Crypto podcast, right? And you're not paying attention and you're passively looking at this. You may catch some headlines from Gary Gensler and Elizabeth Warren and you're like, oh my gosh, man, it sounds like there's a lot of scams going on in this crypto market. I better not get involved. But we know, folks, watch what they do, not what they say. As Gary and Elizabeth Warren are saying that, in parallel, BlackRock, Deutsche Bank, Fidelity, all the big institutions are getting involved, right? The facts are right in front of our face. You've just got to look at the entire market holistically and pay attention to what's happening and who are making moves, who's investing, who's raising capital, and much more. So, crypto trading is not the bank's immediate plans, this spokesperson said. Deutsche Bank said it aimed to offer crypto trading in a World Economic Forum paperback in 2020. But, folks, let me give you a prediction here, which I think would be 100 % accurate, right? Just in a matter of maybe three to four years. They will all offer crypto trading. This is going to be, what is it, the 12th sector? If I'm not mistaken, I'm getting all my sectors together, right? Of the S &P. Crypto will be trading on stock markets. ETFs will be the thing. It's coming. We've seen the maturation and the growth and the adoption.

"We worked on it. And then there was an opportunity to do an off Broadway version of it in San Diego, which I, you know, terrifying myself, said yes, let's use the old globe. That's a home game for you. Yeah, but like terrifying home game because I very quickly was the guy I was like, oh, great. If this doesn't work, I did it in my hometown. This is not cool. But my mom, who is a huge supporter of the idea and was big Broadway and theater fan that was always trying to bring it into our family when I was really young. She would say, don't give up, don't give up. Don't give up. And when she died two days before the first audience came in, to see the play, it was like, oh shit. Now the stakes are as high as they'll ever be. What's going to happen? And what happened was the kind of whatever it was, the kind of feeling in the air that we already had combined with the enhanced emotion of what had just happened with one of our lead characters in the cast was we all had lived together and we were all in on things. So it was like a band. We were in our own little submarine and they were kind of like fuck it, man. We're going to do the best version of this play ever for Lester bangs and Alice crow. And people showed up every night, got standing ovations, and we shocked ourselves and thought, okay, well, we should go to Broadway with it. Why not? I mean, come on. And then the pandemic hit. And the cast stayed together throughout the whole of COVID. She did take other jobs. We were always in our they had like, you know, email chains and chat rooms. They were like, they stayed together and we had weekly get togethers and the weirdest thing happened. They stayed loyal in the way that people are often encouraged not to, because there were agents and managers on their side that were saying, get a PB pilot, man. Like, you won't make that much money in theater if it doesn't go to Broadway or whatever. It's like, why are you so loyal to these parts? And it was because we had that time together as music fans, et cetera, et cetera. So then it became something that a quest. And so here we are for all the right reasons. And people feel it in the theater. And we'll see what happens. But I know that it is true to the very thing that the movie is about loving music and. Idiosyncratic family. Well, that I didn't know the pandemic thing. That's an unbelievable story. I'm there every night, though. I really love talking to the fans. And a lot of them are exactly, as you say. I was scared. I was scared to come here. I drove from Boston and I said to my girlfriend, this is a role of the dice. But

"In the play. But that's all Phil. And I didn't spend that much time with them. And I don't know if he left our set knowing if the movie would be good or not. I was never sure if he believed in it as much as I did. I believe he believed in what he did. But you know, I was a guy playing music and playing music during actors takes and things and I don't know what he expected, but when I came to New York to have him loop some of his lines because of noise, he wanted to watch all his scenes. And I stood next to him watching his scenes in this little recording studio and he turns to me and he said, so I'm in a place tonight. And it's with John C Reilly and it's called true west. And I'm going to leave a ticket for you. And I'd love for you to come and say hi to me after. Sure. Here to loop you, man. I'll see that play. I love true west. So you go see the play and fantastic, right? And I go back to talk to him afterwards, and there was a whole crowd of people in the hallway, and you knew that Philip Seymour Hoffman's dressing room was at the end of this hall. But he hadn't opened the door yet. He opens the door, and he looks through all the people, and he points at me and crooks his finger. And everybody's looking at me like, why do you? So I walk through and I go into the room, he shuts the door and he goes, he made a fucking good movie, and I'm proud to be in it, and I know what's that movie is going to be, and I really thank you for it. And if I was sick and, you know, quiet when I was doing it, I'm just really grateful to be a part of it. Thank you for making the movie. And then he called the rest of the people and he saw

"They were like, oh, okay, he's that guy after all. But now I'm just forever, I see those scenes and I'm forever happy that you can look at that audience and it's pretty literally a 70s audience. But that's almost famous needed that. The thing is, the way you did that movie at some point, you have to commit you're all in in the poker game, right? It's not like you could be like, all right, we'll cut corner on this. You just can't. Everything has to be perfect. 1973, 74. And into that scenario, you put Billy Crudup who had only played piano in his life, and he has 6 weeks to play guitar. And learn how to do it. And Frampton, Peter Frampton was helping out as a creative consultant, which was really cool. Yeah. That was actually the biggest draw for Brad Pitt in the day. Frampton? Yeah, he was like, oh man, this would be great to have France in there to help me do all this stuff and to be with Frampton himself as a yeah, yeah, yeah. And Frampton was really great with crude up. And he had this wonderful thing that crewed up might have told you about where he said, okay, if you really want to be accurate as that guitarist, you have to pick a moment whether you're playing the right thing or not, where you just look up. Like you're summoning it all. From the heavens. And so there are moments in almost famous where you see Billy doing that. That's totally frantic saying like, do that. You'll sell it. But crudup did learn how to play, and he still plays, which is great. Wow. Well, you had that, and then you had Jason Lee, which I gotta say, I love Jason Lee in the 90s. He wouldn't have been my first thought for a frontman of an early mid 70s, but then he was like perfect. It was like, oh my God, how did I not see this? The hair, the beard. He was like, cut that skinny. All the lead singers back then had that kind of skinny, looked like they hadn't eaten in a couple of weeks vibe to them. And shirts that they tuck in. So it's like, but what he had was like the pure hearted narcissism. Why can't why can't we just look cool? Right. What's wrong with this? I love Jason Lee. And I love, you know, drew galing in our play is fantastic baby. And we put a lot more baby stuff in there because I just can't get enough to be nice. We can stay in the timeline, brother. Don't want to throw you off. No, no. I just had a Hoffman. You have Hoffman what for two days? Yeah. One of the great actors in the last 30 years. No kidding. And you have to do all the Lester bang scenes with him. Yeah. And he doesn't feel great. And it ends up he's like, I don't know, I don't know what my favorite Hoffman is, but it's in the conversation. It's like Kim and Scotty J, maybe two other ones. But

"It is. Like even just the way Williams room is decorated and subtle shit like that where it could just tell like you're just a maniac about it, right? Like every poster had to be perfect in the right spot. It had to all the albums had to be exactly what the albums would be and it just seems like you probably went nuts trying to figure out every single aspect of this, right? Yeah, I had one of those freak out moments that they tell about directors that what would now be a YouTube moment. I had one of them. I think I've had two in your career too, in my career at two. One was at the San Diego sports arena when we were doing the stillwater concert. And we had a good amount of extras and then kind of CGI more extra towards the back of the arena. But it was the same night, I mean, people were already seeing the mania of me trying to direct the movie coming because I think I was already I had already gone through this period where I'm like, we got to have this we got to have this shot be the cover of the Neil Young album time fades away. There's a guy with a rose here and he's right up here and it's got to be perfect so they're already rolling their eyes. But then they're talking to the extras and they're saying like, okay and when the song's over, you applaud and so they did it and all these extras were doing like the heavy metal horns Ronnie James Dio thing and like I love that but that didn't happen until the 80s. So we're losing time. We're ready to go. Let's do it and I'm like, no, the raw heavy metal rock horns are wrong. They're like, if they're looking at The Rock horns, you're in trouble. And I'm like, I would be looking at The Rock horns. We have to change it. So that was one of those moments where

"At all. What could have been? And exploitative TV show. I just was like, I'll never be able to hold my head up straight here. But you know, I got to stay friends. Pretty skillfully, you know, delivers comedic character comedy and I don't know, it all could have worked out, but I'm happy with the way things worked out. It's a full episode of Friends because the pain is so good. Do you feel like singles created the coffee? Kind of setting for movies and TV, 'cause I was trying to think, we talked about this when we did the rewatchables, like, what did it before then? I couldn't come up with one. Seattle did it. Seattle. They had already coffee culture was in full swing. Nobody had really written about it. Right. That's why those guys, that was the easiest job to get. If you're in one of those bands, you know, it's like, that was the version of the diner that they had up in Seattle, but partially because it was close to the companies that would later be pike place, et cetera, Starbucks and everything. That was all coming. But these places were so cool because they were so uniquely northwestern and the clientele was kind of rocking. So it'd be like a young community having these cool coffee drinks and then there would be other young people serving them and it was like, this is cool. This is a great setting for the found family. Of singles. Friends ripped it off. Yeah, I was like, when I was in college, Worcester Massachusetts, and I used to go to a Dunkin donuts, like ten minutes away to go try to write notes for a calm or handwrite half of a column. There was no place like that. There was no place like that. So we just sing it in singles. I'm like, wow, what's this? I totally same here. I was like, wait, this is the Denny's of Seattle. I'm

"Scott really was game to do all that stuff. I saw him, I saw him playing Hamlet at the old globe theater. And I thought he was wonderful. And, you know, you try and put the pieces together, he had to get a haircut, right before we were filming singles. 'cause he was doing young, right? Yeah. Yeah, he got a haircut that was a little too short. I mean, now, of course, it's okay. We should have just like died his hair platinum on or something. I don't know, but that length of hair beetle came now, but at the time it felt like a little out of kilter with the look of that guy who is an in between guy between the scenes. He felt a little bit more of a business guy. So, you know, you try and make it work and everything. We actually did a couple of takes with a wig at one point. And it's just a wig is a wig. We were just like, yeah, let's do it. Let's just do it the way you are and let's do it. Let's. Let it rip and he and Kira sedgwick had a very great relationship. And so hopefully there's some truth in there. But it doesn't play like a documentary. And that's okay. What you had, you wrote a diary thing like your diaries for making the movie. And that's good behind this scene stuff you and Ken was. I always thought my dream guy for that role would have been River Phoenix. And I don't know what kind of state of mind he was at that I know he was starting to have some issues at that point, but the straight version of River Phoenix's career if he doesn't get sidetracked. That would have been there. So for all we know, Campbell at the time was kind of developing what his style was going to be. So he could have tilted more to the River Phoenix of it all. Right. But he has a very kind of noble stature about his work. He's really a great actor and very director. And we spent that time together. We lived through it. And sometimes it's perfect and sometimes it becomes perfect. And sometimes it doesn't I mean, the casting, Jerry Maguire, it's like it has to be those two people. That's the other example of that, right? You just got two for two, and then you throw the script and you shoot it well, now you have an iconic movie. Yeah. But you can't graph how it's going to work though. Had come in twice and the last time she came in for Jerry Maguire, her dog had died and she was just not the right frame of mind. And she left for the audition and none of us even talked about. It was that moment in a room where you just don't even bring it up. It obviously wasn't going to work. And then, I don't know, 6 months go by or whatever and Gail 11 casting director really super good friend of mine says, you know, I can't get that girl from Texas with the dog out of my mind. Can I bring her back? I think she's probably not right for you. Probably not right for this story. Can I bring her back? And really, yeah, it was bring her back. She was a sweetheart, you know? And so she came back on a day when I think Mira Sorvino and Gwyneth Paltrow and a couple of other people. I think we're around probably Joey Lawrence Lauren Adams is in there too. I'm trying to think of like so. I think so, actually, I think you're right. And Cruz was there to read with them. And something happened. Renee walked into the room and he just made, she made him laugh. And she just came in with all that young spirit and there's a moment. I think I was even filming it, where Cruz turns around and he looks at me and he looks at her and he looks back at me like, wow. Come on. Yeah, come on. What are we doing here? Yeah, but it was also like a real human in the world saying, isn't she something? And that was the character. And so that was like Renee, we love Renee. To do a screen test together, but that moment, galvanized the fact that we could do an unknown against Tom Cruise, the ultimate known, and that would be Jerry Maguire. But we didn't know until that day. I said you nailed it too, but I sure changed rad tidwell, who is probably one of my top four favorite sports movie characters of all time. And the whole family, and it's just so unlike anything. The sports movie versus the RomCom thing with Jerry Maguire. I think I litigated this once. I can't even remember where I landed. It's both, which

"Those four ads just stage performers as to see those four people live. And you capture some of it and singles. Lane's thing in singles is out of control. I could have watched that for like an hour. Me too. But I think that's so unusual and so unique. And New York had a little bit of this in the early 2000s when they had the AAS and the strokes and a couple others, but it wasn't like this. I just don't think it'll ever happen again. It comes from those artists, you know? They really, they were channeling something. And like I say, Cornell was the most is the most down to earth person. And that's why it's so heartbreaking because he was he was among the most generous people you meet particularly in the world of musicians who often are very self obsessed and rightly so and stuff. But Cornell was a really open, hearted guy who supported so many of those bands just with pure fandom. And he smashing pumpkins are on that soundtrack because of Chris. Chris was like, I was in Chicago. We played a show with this band. You really should check this band out. They should be part of your movie. He's that kind of guy. The soundtrack became an all time all time all timer. It's all time. It's like whatever the conversation is, it has to be mentioned. It was interesting doing the research so where it didn't seem like you felt like you had kind of, and I know it's tough to talk about

"Now as the years pass, you captured it. But in the moment, if it's what, ten, 11 months earlier, it's completely different. That would drive me crazy. I would never get over that. You're absolutely right. But the thing is, the scene that you just mentioned was kind of a joke at the time. There was no Seattle scene. There was just some bands and a great radio station called kcmu. And they were all they took jobs in coffeehouse and stuff to be able to support their bands, but there was no scene like LA, like I had come from Los Angeles, and it felt not unlike San Diego. There's no real scene. There's just some bands from here. So the whole kind of inside joke of the singles, the Seattle that we filmed when we filmed it was this was like a joke to say, you know, we're a band in the Seattle scene. The weirdest thing was that the music was so good, soundgarden in particular, Allison chains. And it did explode. And I always thought if any of those bands exploded it was going to be soundgarden because I had been to a soundgarden show that was like a Black Sabbath combined with like a psychedelic thing combined with cheap trade. Or something, or Led Zeppelin houses of the holy. And I just thought like, this is so much better than the hard rock bands in LA. That I wanted to do a movie that had that soundtrack to it, and all the bands participated. A lot of them worked on the movie as PAs or Jeff amen was in the art department and it just felt like a group effort that all of a sudden the roving spotlight of media sensation came in landed on that city after we filmed it. So it was actually the spotlight that got it filmed at Warner Brothers was just kind of pissed off that it wasn't what Harry met Sally, you know, that was what they thought a romantic comedy should be. They're like you're giving us Matt Dillon with long hair. That's not Billy Crystal, man. Well, as you're filming it, never mind comes out, becomes a comet. And then Pearl Jam caught ten comes out a few months after that. Same thing. But when you started filming it, when you did, I remember in the research you'd gotten the cast together and you went to see a show and it was like, you went to see Mookie blaylock was they were getting pro champion yet. So you're filming it in the scene hasn't even taken off. I just thought the timing of that was unbelievable. And then by the time it comes out, the scenes happened. Yeah, it's bizarre. I remember Matt Dillon came late to that show. It was Allison chains, Mookie blaylock, and I think Kristen berry opening. But Matt Dillon had shown up from pre wig, of course, from New York. And I remember him sitting there going to jazz, man. I'm just into jazz. This sounds good, but I'm in the jazz. And the cast was looking at me like, okay, so this is like this loud thing that you really love. Okay, well, go to bed early, you know, but they started to catch a buzz. What it was was a really welcoming community of musicians and they were lacked pretension in any degree. And Eddie, you know, Eddie was just the shyest guy who could barely look up from this wall

"That it becomes one big trope. When in fact, life of the life of a band has many of those moments. Yeah, so it's just whatever that mix is that makes you feel like it feels to be in a band and being that kind of submarine together for years. The things that happen in the submarine of a band's life are often completely ridiculous and then out of the blue super resonant and amazing. Yeah, like the last dance with Jordan and that documentary about that last season. Even though sports stopped music, it still felt like it could have been a music band, right? It's a band that's at the precipice of breaking up. They've all been together too long. There's a lot of bitterness. There's resentment for who's number one number. It was all the same shit that we've seen break up our favorite bands. Great comparison. It was like a band film. And honest, it felt real honest, you know? You know what it felt like? It felt like it put you in the room. It put you in the room with them. And that's always the dream. If you have the opportunity to be in the room and actually interviewing somebody or be reporting on them, you just got to be aware of the details and get the details that only life can bring you. Get your details right. And just, you know, be a one person documentary documentarian. And give people the feeling of what it was like to be in the room, because almost famous the movie, the goal was to give people the feeling. Of being inside a musical elixir. Where music meant a little bit more. And these people were all fans living for that feeling of being transported by a song or a band that you love. So I can the movie make you feel that way. And the miracle kind of almost famous, which was like a four and a half hour first cut. I remember showing it to my mom and saying, what is this? And she said, well, it's too long, but there's a masterpiece in there. So get to work. And you can debate whether it's a masterpiece, but it did reduce to having the feeling that ultimately, you know, we thought we'd try and see if we could get it in a live theater situation. But the goal was always to be a noble fan and to use the opportunity to make a movie about that. Well, I want to talk about almost famous obviously. Let's go to singles just because I think singles for good or for better or worse sets up sets up almost famous, right? You have to talk about anything, Bill. Well, you have the ride, baby. You have this idea. First of all, you're in Seattle. We just did this for rewatchable. So I'm totally versed. I'm so appreciative. Okay, let's go. You're in the scene. You have this idea. It's right around the same time as we have Melrose place season one with the characters in the apartment building. We have real world 7 cast members throwing together and you're fascinated by this early 90s. People being thrown together where they become family. Even though they may not even have that much in common, but all of a sudden that becomes your family. But at the same time, there's this incredible music scene happening. And you capture it, and you have the movie, and they don't release it. And it just sits for months and months and months. And by the time it finally comes out, it's September 92. And it's late. But it's still cool. And

"Have borrowed at least just a whiff of that for almost famous, right? Of course. This is the Jeff Bebe band. Of course. It's actually becoming the Russell Hammond band. Sorry, sorry, Jeff Beebe, you're getting left behind, but I always felt that was Glenn Frey, right? Big time. Yes, absolutely. Because it's two guys that had bands that were significant in their town in their hometown. So those guys have very specific personalities until they combine their power. And that you get all the sparks from it and you get either direction. So this was one of those things that you don't get now. They asked me to come live with them when they were doing one of these nights. Wow. And what a time to live with them too. I have the cassette of them writing Lion eyes together. And it's all there on that tape. You just see, they just meld, man, and they know their influences, they have the same experience in a place called Tana's just down the hill from where they were living. So Lion eyes was about women. They had just been around. So they were aching about it and also just wanting to write a song that just had a killer song power element to it. And that was their thing. It's like, we got to put away all of our stuff, particularly fry. We got to put away all of our petty shit because it's about the song. I mean, Glen had a shirt that said song power. And that was also, that was not a joke. He was about the song. So they bowed down to the songs, but you know, there was a lot of stuff that went into getting to the moment where you're ready to write it and record it. And that's how it was cool being around them for that. Do you feel like all bands have to have

"Channels, right? The dramas are things like hill street blues and Simon and Simon. Falcon crest. Dynasty? So movies aren't competing against anything. So all the art and thoughtfulness and storytelling, like if you want to do it, you're doing it in there. Now we have not just scripted TV, but even like documentaries, you have the noise from that too. There's so many I was watching the one on HBO about the Murdoch family last night. It was really good, yeah. The South Carolina family where there's crimes and it's just, there seems like there's one of those now. Every 5 days. There's another one. Or there's like the watcher or we just have so much content and I wonder the combination of that plus, we've made a lot of movies. You know, it's like Nathan Harvard, my friend who is a big music guy, and he always gets worried about rock bands. And I was like, what happened to rock bands? Why don't we have as many rock bands? Well, we've basically taken the guitar and we've come up with all of these different outcomes for any sort of song, right? And at some point they start to become derivative of each other. And that's when music these other genres pop up, right? Wrap pops up hip hop and electronic. And you just keep innovating. And with movies, there's not really, it can't innovate in this same way, right? So then it drifts to these other things, like documentaries, and scripted TV, and maybe those are the innovations. That's my fear. It's interesting because music is operating with its sort of different American music is operating with a different synthetic history, right?

The movies were not always great, but there was a kind of moral greatness to them, like somebody's gotta do this America and here I am doing it. Despite everything. Same thing, right? People, like there was a there was a wing of Hollywood, liberal white Jewish Hollywood that was committed to speaking to what was happening in the moment, talking about racism, talking about anti semitism, talking about how about conspiracies. Well, think about the trilogy. That comes a decade later when there are no movies set in the past, right? And even the movie's set in the past are about the present. There's this conflation of time. I'll skip the house get 40 years of movie making just to get to the press and how in the last ten years we've gotten, there's no regional filmmaking. You see, I mean, I can't even, you know, it's funny that the way that Jordan Peele's movies, for instance, are essentially an amusement parks. Right. They're arranged around a kind of fun House universe. That is as much about a recreation. Where the amusement park itself is recreating or restaging something about America's past.
