"But it's so interesting. I knew a guy, and this I digress. There's no time to digress. But here we go. I know a guy who 55, 60 years old. He said, you know what? I'm sick of living in LA. He was a writer. He was a TV writer. He's like, I want to be an over the road truck driver. And he's been doing it. He got divorced. He had a bad, you know, he had a bad, you know, change of life, kind of dude thing. And now he has back problems. I was like, let me tell you something about it over the road truck driver. That's a young person's cake. Yeah. 12 hours a day. Can't be good for you. Yeah, that's not ideal. I don't know how you fix that, but it isn't, yeah, it is great. But the other book and this is a more historical fiction and is the flashman series. I don't know if you have ever read the flashman series, written in the 50s. All right? Harry flashman is a terrible person. And he always wins. He has given slightly his comeuppance, like Andy ashcraft gave me the first blessman book we were dating? Yeah. He was like, this is an amazing, it's the history of the British. The first book is the British invasion of Afghanistan. Guess how that went. Anyway, so much like it went every time anyone tried to invade a kid. Yeah. So what are the reasons I think I attached onto the Stephanie Blum series, which again is super entertaining, but it is wildly unrealistic. And when you are in a state of trauma, awesome, as I'm when I feel a little bit better, I'm like, what that come on now. Really, she only eats donuts and cake. Right, and yet she's super hot. Super super hot. It's actually it's kind of funny how they never quite describe sometimes what kind of shirt she's put on, but she never describes her body, which I, you know, sometimes you read these things that it's like, you know, she could tell the way he gazed at her was that it was like no woman. None of that kind of stuff. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Is it written by Janet Ivanovich, right? So it's not about a woman. It's written by a woman..

"Trying time. It is 4 10 on Monday. We are dnd, Minsky and Doyle on estimates and I'm Bill Doyle. You know, this show is a little unusual for radio talk shows on that we we don't do, I guess that often because, you know, mostly we hate people so So you know that when we have somebody on we tend to really like them. And this is a guy that we've known for a long, long time. Republican state Senator Declan O. Scanlon is with us. Hey, Declan. Hey, guys, How are you doing? Well, thank you. So weird introduction, wasn't it? Look, I'll take it. You know, we don't hate you, deck. Lynn. Look, that's the bar success for my wife that I had to figure. It's a good day. As long as she doesn't hate me. That's good As it gets from this, they're all thank you. There you go. All right? Um, uh, Senator O'Scannlain actually wrote to me couple of days ago because six days ago I wrote something and it was about the upcoming governor's race, and it was nine reasons not to vote for Phil Murphy. Where we'll get to that in a second. But Senator I I need to ask you. I read very little about this. I maybe have some of it wrong, but the budget vote. A couple days ago with this ridiculously bloated 46 million billion. I think it is a dollar budget. What was that business about how little time was given for the lawmakers to actually read through this and digest this? The Democrats didn't want to give you guys very much time at all is my understanding. They voted it out of budget. It's a 280 page document that no budget committee member Red, not one. How do I know that? Because only minutes before was the document. May develop and there were there were hundreds of millions of others. Spending bills during that same budget vote Budget committee that were voted on even before they were made publicly available. So one of the worst aspects of of how we do our budgets in New Jersey, particularly this year. Is the lack of transparency. I mean, nobody who voted on this thing. Uh, I bet have read the whole thing. And I've read a lot of it between the budget vote and I'm sorry. The committee vote right the floor. But even I mean, it's it was impossible to do with thorough. Reading of the document, so we spent well North 46 billion of your tax dollars and nobody who voted on well. New Senate President Steve Sweeney said that parts of it had been released and that everybody knew what was in it. Just not all put together. How would you respond to that? Would respond that, you know. Look, there were parts that were left intact. But you don't know where the edits were. There were. You know there was some half hearted attempt. To point out some of the things but you really don't know And and the right friends. He didn't He didn't read it either. Oh, my God. Yeah, I mean, you know, it goes back to the old phrase Devil's in the details you could have, you know a few small items that that that could amount to something catastrophic. And you know, things like this ought to be tended to more carefully, and my understanding was the Republicans did not like this one bit. But the Democrats were like, well, too bad It needs to be voted on. You get what, like an hour tops was the compromise. I think Well, no in budget the but the committee. The Budget committee vote was minutes Then there were a couple of days between not vote and the floor votes. Gotcha. Right. It was still it's still impossible to decipher. 280 page 46 plus billion dollar budget in that in that short period of time, right? I mean, even to do your own research on, uh, on a lot of the items could take days alone. It's It's just, uh That's exactly what and by the way, they also had a full board list. So within that same 48 hour period, you had to digest another 100 bills. And try to understand them and try to decide how you're going to vote. I mean, it was It was impossible and look, I try to read everything, and I couldn't read it all. So we were voting. Everybody in that chamber was voting on things, the budget bill and others that they had no time to digest. We're understand now that you've had time to digest it. What do you dislike about it? Well, look, there's there's probably close to $2 billion in there that I have some serious concerns about. Yeah, probably between four and 500 million in individual line items add on That most of which probably removed I and you know, and and not damage the budget for the average of New Jersey and one way or another, there's a $1.2 billion. I suppose it diffuse mint. Section section did the 3.2 billion in debt and defeat mint of winds that they didn't outline so that itself could be Another $1.2 billion pork Flashman, and they could have itemized these things. So why didn't they really so more than a billion dollars is we We? We don't even really know what exactly it's for. That's true. Yes. Oh, my God. Like I and, you know, And then you have the 4 to 500 million that you'll you'll know now they didn't release who put those standing items into the budget. So you know you could guess when you see money going to certain legislators districts. It was them who requested it. Uh, right. You know all New Jersey and be paying 4 to $500 million to things that don't benefit them at all. To walking trails in one town to returning a sports field in another. Why shouldn't every town Jeff? These things were really the Why should any town get them at all? It should It shouldn't be the case, right? Ended up over time. You're talking over the last five years or so a billion and a half dollars of add ons like this. It's real money, I and, you know again shouldn't happen, And if it's gonna happen, it should happen. With the clear light of day on it, So all taxpayers know everything. Their money is going to this. This budget is coming in and election year for not only the governor, but all seats and this was just to me. It was like Santa Claus budget. You know, Here's your tax cuts. Here's this historic, huge pension. But how much is the public being set up for a disappointment in future budgets? Because it's not always going to be like this right? Yes, And that's a real serious fear that a couple of years down the road when the largesse of the federal government is exhausted, and it's huge, I mean, it's an obscene amount of money that we didn't really need came about because of the pandemic relief. Yeah, exactly. The pandemic shave this administration's fiscal, but The the money coming from the federal government bailed them out of having make really any of the tough decisions which eventually will have to be made. Regardless, we're not flush with cash because we're acting responsibly. We're fresh the cash for completely artificial set of reasons and see borrowing last year. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah, I didn't want to talk about Hey, listen, um I know I'm kind of setting you up unfairly for this..

"Flashman. So last night, Joe Biden gave, I think what is clearly the worst address to a joint session of Congress I've ever seen. I mean, legit, terrible. In every possible way. That was the worst address to a joint session of Congress I've ever seen. I hate these things. Generally, When you go back, you didn't listen to my episodes about Joy addresses to join sessions of Congress. I hate the monarchical aspect of it. I hate the president wandering in and never be cheering you. It's the president. We're so excited. We treat him like he's a king, and then everybody stands in cheers for everything, he says. The president is a plumber. He has a specific job to do so. I hate that from the beginning, but this was really, really bad. It was a barely conscious old daughter. Mumbling at you for an hour and a half about how he was going to spend more money than God has ever created on a variety of proposals that will completely reshape the nature of American government. And honest to God. I almost wonder whether the strategy is he's going to bludgeon you into unconsciousness. And then while you're unconsciously just gonna lose your pockets. He's basically Cardi B. He's gonna bludgeon you into unconsciousness. Then he's going to rob you right? That's the actual I think premise of the Biden premises of the Biden presidency because Here's the thing. The Democratic Party needs your Biden. They need your Biden specifically because he is this because he cannot hold it together because he starts mumbling and wandering off into cornfields because he's not threatening as I have suggested President House plans is there to hide the water stain and the water stain is growing. He's exacerbating the water stain, but they need him there to hide the water stain because Villa Kamila Harris Co president Harris out there making a speech about how she was going to spend $10 Trillion.10 trillion They keep saying six trillion It's not six trillion this aside from the $4 Trillion budget, $10 trillion, If it were Kamila Harris saying this every build. Wow, That sounds kind of radical, but be cold. But because it is this old man they wheeled in on a gurney who can barely string together a full paragraph. We're now supposed to believe that his home moderate and fine. So I mean, maybe the maybe the bug is the feature. Maybe the fact that Joe Biden is a horrible speaker. Maybe the fact that he is in obvious cognitive decline. Maybe the fact that Joe Biden was almost inaudible last night. Maybe that's the feature Then there was the optics of the situation. So we're supposed to believe that we're on this optimistic upswing because you know what we should be. The pandemic is coming to an end. A huge percentage of Americans have been vaccinated, and Joe Biden was out there counting them, but he's in a chamber. Where people are socially distance and masked. Every single human in that chamber was vaccinated every single one. You know, it's been a great message they actually want to push vaccinations. If you wanna push hope what you would've done is gonna fill the chamber with vaccinated people you to send all these people are vaccinated, which means they're back to regular life. And you can be, too. But Joe Biden can't say that you see, because of Joe Biden were to say that and he wouldn't have any lever with which to cram into law all of the spending. Joe Biden's entire presidency is premised on the notion that there's a giant crisis out there, and he has a bunch of manufactured crises like income inequality or racial inequity or climate change again. Some of these things are real problems particular. Particularly climate change is a problem over the course of the century, but it is a solvable problem. It's an adaptable problem. It is not a crisis. He needs an actual crisis so conveniently for him. We just had one of the biggest crises in modern history. We have this pandemic, but the problem for him is that the pandemic is now basically over. If you live in a red state, you know the pandemic is over. Because everybody is back to normal. They're living their lives. So Joe Biden has to continue to maintain that the pandemic is still crippling America. Yeah, eventually. Get out of it. How many days will eventually we'll? Is everyone here? Because he can't acknowledge if it's over. Now, then we don't need any of his garbage spending programs that are going to bankrupt the country destroy the American dollar raise inflation kill investment rates. We don't need any of that crap. Right? As it comes to an end, we're gonna go back to the economy We had just before the pandemic, which was the strongest economy in 50 years by all available metrics. So he has to prolong the pandemic. So instead you got this bizarre optics of Joe Biden vaccinated in a chamber with 200. Other people all vaccinated, socially distance, and then you'd have a shot of the crowd and he's supposed to be exciting us. Right is supposed to be the optimistic wave of the future. You look out. And it looks like what the inside of Joe Biden's brain must look like a bunch of empty space with an occasional human here and there. It was bizarro world. Frankly, I don't even know why the Republicans mask they should know they should have gone in there and they should listen. You wanna take me out of here? I'm vaccinated. You're gonna have to explain to people why I need to mask when I'm both fascinated and socially distance. The whole idea here from the Biden administration is to continue to promote covert panics. They can ram through a bunch of policy and they're going to tell you that their policy is not radical, because this boring old man is pushing it. Because this dude who sounds like your grandpa, not like a grand public when he was in his sixties, and he was fun, and you go go karting with him. But your grandpa when he was in his eighties, and you had to start thinking about whether you're going to move him into a nursing home. That guy is going to cram into policy a bunch of radical stuff, But it's not radical, because of course he speaks on your camera. Jim Because how could that guy be threatening? How could that that guy be radical? So again. I think the Democratic Party needs him. I think they need this. So that was the speech last night, and it was bizarre. I mean, he lied over and over and over again, he said, a bunch of things that were just weird. He cannot speak. I can't get over the fact that there's still people in the media who are attempting to proclaim that Joe Biden is with us. He's not with us has not been with us for some time. It's very sad. He's the elected president of the United States. Makes me sad for the country that the elected president of the United States is a person who Honest to God cannot get through a speech in a coherent fashion that was not coherent last night. And here is your body. Just a little taste Here is Joe Biden. Stumbling over himself. This is not because Joe Biden Had a stammer that he overcame, which is again an active, tremendous strength. This has nothing to the standard because for most of his career, he didn't speak like this. He only speaks like this now because he's old and because he's becoming addled here is Joe Biden last night just Stumbling all over himself. With regard to Russia. No concerns some of you Well, I made very clear to Putin. We're not going to seek. Ask actually, ex. Excuse me. Escalation. I said before the speech that watching by the speaker says an American is like watching Nick Wallenda walk over a volcano. You just know there's gonna be a point where there's like a man like I hope he's right. Like Every so often they should cut live to them. Every time he goes up and down the stairs of Air Force one, you could be watching history in the making. That's the pitch for Joe Biden. Okay, So we're gonna get into the actual content of the speech in just one moment, because the entire thing here about how you have to generate enthusiasm for president who clearly not only someone who we should be unenthusiastic about, but who is promoting policies that would make LBJ and FDR blush make Barack Obama blush for that matter. It's pretty astonishing. It really is. I give a preview last night on the daily wire backstage. What I thought it was gonna sound like and it was pretty dead on is pretty dead on. We'll get to that in just one second first know that a lot of medical issues that we just put off the medical issues that are just annoying to talk about or uncomfortable, and you think maybe they'll just go away. But there's certain medical issues..

My question Donald Trump ran as a law and order president, and it seems pretty ironic to me. That Anybody would believe that he would incite violence. Against the police and other people. I just haven't heard anybody talking about that. So that's why I'm bringing it all. I mean, the president did say peacefully unpatriotically march to have your voices be heard, but they edit that part out. They don't Listen, This is a show with a predetermined outcome. It always has been. And you know, I we've been rebutting it on TV. I don't even know or would recommend. You know, Some people are frustrated with the opening comments of 11 attorney this Bruce guy. I don't even know the guy David shown. I thought that a good job. I wouldn't spend more than three hours. They don't need 16 hours to just ramble on and hear themselves talk. I think it's the question and answer period that they get to closing arguments and let's get the vote on. Let's move because the votes already predetermined and get back to the business of people. But if they want witnesses all mall I got my list of witnesses ready to go. Thanks. Steve. Tammy, South Carolina. What's going on? Tammy? Are you Flashman? I just make a comment on these four folks have lost their jobs. I understand how they feel. Because we were in textiles in 2000 won. We lost their jobs. Now they make it sound like it's this big fairy tale that everybody's gonna run out and find a job. They're not It took us almost 15 years to get back to the same point that we were my husband and I You know financially, I get it. No, I mean it's terrible. And you can't You can't just run out when you have one steal. I worked in a textile mill for 28 years. You can't run out and grab a job. Especially when you're in your forties, and you think he's a very, very technical, very skill specific jobs that are not easily transferrable from one business to another. I mean, this is that this in some cases or decades of building a career to the point where you really making a good living, and it just got ripped out from underneath you and all the world will you get it? We want you to get another job, but there is no other job. And there's enough Americans out of work now. Because of the pandemic, and then we're gonna legalize millions more to compete for the few jobs that come online, and that's going to drive down wages. Well, that's not going to get them. 100 Grand Plus And it's not going to get him the benefits they used to. Richard Trump that how you feeling today? Unbelievable. How it was with us it you know it took us. May 2 years to find a job. My husband went back to work because he could do just about anything but still, you know, it's just said I feel so sorry for this people feel so I feel so sorry. All of those people. Me too. I really feel sorry and I feel helpless. I don't feel like I can help them. Don't feel like I You know, I'm trying to get people aware. That's why I brought Patrick Morrisey on disease. Attorney General's attorneys general are gonna are gonna help stop some of this. And if we can stop it than these guys, hopefully we can preserve their jobs. You know, But, you know, I'd rather talk about saving the great jobs, careers and lively hoods of Americans and talking about the stupid impeachment crap in the shift show charade that we've got to cover every day tired of it. And when this thing is over, and the president is acquitted, it's time for the country to engage fully. And become aware of what the hell they're doing, because it's not good for American workers. It's hurting Americans. These policies are hurting, hardworking, law abiding, tax paying. Ah, great Americans. That's what it's doing. That's that should break everybody. So I thought they cared about the working men and women of this country. Apparently not. As if they did. They wouldn't be so cavalier about you will go get another union job. We're going to get another union job. We're not going to get it. It's the $100,000 a year jobs that they don't fall off trees. When you got an industry and you gonna wipe out the whole thing, and then have Hollywood recommend you wipe out even more of them. I'm gonna listen to Scarlett Jo Hanson and Leonardo the crappy Oh, God help us. Really give a rip what they They've got their money. Go live their life. Leave leave American workers alone.

"Live everywhere on the heart radio app on this Tuesday it's February. 9th President Trump's lawyers are arguing that the impeachment trial in the Senate is unconstitutional. One of their arguments, of course, is that because the president is no longer the president as written in the Constitution, you cannot have a trial because the only remedy For an impeachment trial in the Senate is to kick somebody out of office. The problem is he's been out of office for a couple of weeks already, so we'll keep an eye on that. That vote actually is expected later today. It's only gonna be a simple my simple majority. To consider this constitutional and then move on to the real part of the trial. Well, Los Angeles who will have the attention of everyone Next year. Next February, when, for the first time in nearly three decades, the Super Bowl comes to L. A. It will be a beautiful, so fi stadium and what a stage it will be. Cathy Schlozman is joining us. She is the L, A Sports and Entertainment Commission president and CEO and Kathy. I would assume that the clock started on this a long time ago in terms of preparation for Super Bowl 56. Yeah. Everybody thinks the clock turned on today. But, yes, we We started in 2016 when we won the bid in May of 2016 planning, but really the big work and And the excitement is starting today. What do you have to do to get them to agree to put a Super Bowl in your city? Ah lot after there's a There's a lot of responsibility, and they want to make sure they have a lot of events. It's not just the game and the things that are happening at the stadium. They bring so much business to the city with events and activities that were happening, so we have to Go out, find a different venues for them to host it. We have to help with the transportation and the marketing and promotion and, you know, they want to make sure that the residents in Los Angeles know that the Super Bowl on the activities air here and that they can participate you they don't want to just come there. Not a one and down there, not just a one game. This is a event that takes place for an entire week. And there's activities you know, and promotion and marketing and think economic impact that's happening the year leading up to it, you bring up economic impact, and I think it's gonna mean so much more next February than it has in years past. When you talk about bringing the Super Bowl to a city, I mean, because this is AH community just like every many communities in this country that have been shut down. For a year now almost and Ah, lot of people fallen on hard times, and this could be a boost for many people. You were right. We're the reason we're excited to have the event coming here. We were excited before Cove it But now with 2022 the game coming, this is an opportunity to bring business to the hospitality industry. The hotels, the caters all the people that haven't had any business over the last year, So it was exciting before it's a tremendous opportunity. Now we're so grateful that we have it. Coming up when we're going to be coming out of coded life will be getting back to normal, But people really need a shot in the arm. They need something to look forward to, and they need to know that there's some opportunity for them to participate, and that's what's exciting for us. Happiest. Lastman is l, a Sports and entertainment Commission President CEO Talking about Super Bowl 56 coming to L A. About a year from now, how Why does this spread geographically? I mean the reach of the potential impact of this next year. Right. We're telling everybody again. It's not about just what's happening at the stadium. This is a region wide. The whole Los Angeles County is going to be involved. There's going to be activities all over the place. There's gonna be hotel bookings all over the city and the county can't just do it. In the city. There's so much business that comes it has to spread out and it's great opportunity again for everybody to participate in Los Angeles. We should take our show there for that week. Well, if you could talk to somebody like that idea happy, huh? I knew if I had a connection like Kathy know somebody Gabby's Thank you so much for joining us. Appreciate it, And we are super excited and we were talking about the possibility. You know, these two Los Angeles teams. They both There's a shot for both of them to end up in the title game. I know. Wouldn't that be great? You know, you usually would not want that because in college football, you're dependent on the people traveling to visit to watch their teams that Super Bowl. Everybody comes for the events. It doesn't really matter who's playing on the field. So tab. Both of our l. A teams in the Super Bowl would be fantastic. Even even just in the hunt would be found. Totally. Kathy. Thank you Once again, we appreciate appreciate it. Okay? Flashman there again. L, a Sports and Entertainment Commission president and CEO of the You think about what was lost not by any fault of their own. But what was lost by the Tampa area simply because they didn't have almost two entire weeks of events and parties and things that lead up to the Super Bowl last year in Miami, you couldn't go anywhere without there being some sort of Super Bowl event or it was soon to be, or they just had had a Super Bowl event or insignia or some sort of celebration. I mean, it is just such a She said, shot into the arm of cities. When you have this magnitude of production and events and all of it, it's It's crazy, and it's so exciting to think about and I can't wait for those stadiums to have fans in them again because you know, just going to the game, which is great. It is. Wonderful, but you know when you don't have the fans, you miss Ah, huge percentage of the experience of a game. Somebody was talking about that It was an interview with a player. Somebody is talking about that. The Actual event itself. On Sunday, it was one of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I can't remember who it was, but the question was, Did it make a difference for you? That's your home field like you knew what to expect. You know what the playing surface is, like? You know, the temperatures like you know what the the just where the locker rooms are like that type of thing. Can help the team feel comfortable doing what Still, Andrea response was, Yeah. I mean, Yeah, we knew everything was, but it's just it was different enough just because it's not home field advantage. Guys there are used to not knowing more things are. Well, First of all, they're led into the stadium. They're they're led in by people who know exactly where everything is. They don't hurt for anything. They don't wander around like me and Matt in DJ When we can't find the press box that there is different rebel directions on the hotel stationery, right? Like you take a left out this door. You go up two flights of stairs, take a right and then knock and then to give that guy An egg that's behind the window of that door. I mean, it's really crazy when you when you have to find the freaking press boxes, But they don't have that struggle. Who did. You have to give an egg too? There was a guy in Buffalo. You couldn't get to the press box until you went up A couple flights of stairs took a left. Took another right went through it. A couple trap doors was a whole to do. Hey, did you know that more people watch the Super Bowl in Boston than in Tampa? That's funny. That is funny. You know why? Yes. One Brady? Yeah. Oh, my God. J. Tom Brady's done it again when we come back Swamp Watch Bruce Castor, former President Trump's defense lawyer is speaking to the Senate. The argument today is about the constitutionality.

"New Americans. Yeah. And now he is signing the third and final immigration order of the day. These Children and reestablish Our reputation as being a haven for people in need. Thank you very, very much. And President Biden leaving the Oval Office couldn't hear him responding to those questions, But Max Burns let me ask you, the president said. I'm not making new law. I'm eliminating bad policy. What is your view on these three executive orders the president signed today. That's absolutely right. And honestly, this could not come a moment too soon. This is not only I think the president making clear to the progressive wing of the party that he's taking seriously their issues. But also a man who is morally outraged as as I was, as someone who was in Texas during Thies family separations and working to end them. It's something that has outraged people more than I've ever seen in my life. And it is, as he said, a great moral and national shame. So this is this is the first in a number of long steps to hell that that wound and very well said, and we want to thank so much Democratic strategist Max Burn contributor to the Daily Beast and the New York Daily News and the independent. So good to talk to you. And now joining US myself and Rick Davis Bloomberg contributor. We're delighted to talk to representative Chuck Fleischmann, who has represented the third Congressional District in Tennessee since 2011 he serves on the Appropriations Committee, as well as the subcommittee's for energy and water development and Homeland security. So Congressman Fleischman. Thanks so much for joining us. Good evening. It's great to visit with you all. Thank you for the opportunity. And I want to start by asking how you're feeling. We know that you had were diagnosed with Cove it and how are you doing? Well, thank goodness I threw it quickly. I actually was diagnosed in very early January, and unfortunately Had to miss the inaugural inauguration I had done to President Obama's second inauguration and then President Trump's inauguration but due to cope, But I was unable to go, but, uh I'm back running. I'm strong. Thank goodness Say I'm healthy. But I do sincerely wish anyone who has been a afflicted with this the very best of health and a quick recovery. Was so good to hear that you're doing well and I couldn't agree more. Let let me just ask you about the what? We were just want listening. Tomo President Biden signing three executive orders regarding immigration and you sit on the subcommittee for Homeland security. He was also congratulating the new director of Homeland Security Secretary May Yorkis. What is your view on these three executive orders he signed today as well as his statement, which I think was striking that I'm not making new law. I'm eliminating bad policy. Well as the ranking member, meaning the highest Republican on the homeland Security appropriations subcommittee. I have worked for years on these issues. I've spent a lot of time. Going to the border. Looking at the situation. I have been disappointed with the rather, um, frequent use of the executive pin. That President Biden has done in his short, tenure assed president. I would much prefer to work these matters out through the normal legislative processes. But, um I'm very concerned with the status of the border, our border security. I've spent a lot of time talking with the men and women who work down there for the border Patrol. S O. I'm rather concerned about this again. I think we will see in the courts. Many of the executive orders Being challenged, probably on a case by case or order by order basis, But it's been again really, I think an over abundance of the use of the executive pen and not really a good way to start an administration. When I watched President Biden's speech after you normal From my couch. Um, he talked about unity He talked about, uh, in a very positive way, bringing us together. Uh, I think the the frequency and volume of these executive orders Coupled with some of his his other initiatives, such as this covered package, where was not one to Republican real Republican participation. Is leaving us with a sense, perhaps, of empty rhetoric. Actions speak louder than words. So I'm disappointed, but he is the president and until the courts and the American people do otherwise, But by being vocal, I'm afraid he's going to continue to use the executive pen with these executive orders. Congressman Flashman shifting gears a little bit on going to the fact that you are the ranking Republican on the Homeland Security subcommittee. You know we had an event today. In addition to the executive orders, Alejandro Mayorkas was confirmed. Aziz, the new secretary of Homeland security. Today's conversation has been mostly focused on immigration, but we know that there are many other issues besides immigration that the Homeland Security Agency covers including cyber attacks, which you know we've seemed to have forgotten that there is a significant exposure to the attacks that we've had this last year. On guy was curious What you think the priorities are. If you had, uh, Secretary Marcus sitting in your office tomorrow morning. What would you tell him? He needs to focus on It's an excellent point you make clearly cybersecurity. But I'm Clegg. You've touched on the fact that the Homeland Security subcommittee of appropriation funds so many different things. Clearly we will be very active in protecting the nation from cyber security. I have talked long and hard about protecting our nation's infrastructure. Our great capital city in Nashville had a bomb blast on Christmas Day and the damage to the infrastructure that caused that was caused by the blast created a ripple effect in terms of technology and the inability to stay connected. So I would I would focus on integrity not only in terms of the cyber security side, which is very important But also on the physical side of of the grid in protecting that the other thing looking at our our subcommittee we fund TSH TSH has come through with the number of initiatives recently. I think in a very bipartisan way, and I think what gets lost is As we work together, Republicans and Democrats on homeland they have always been A few divisive issues, the wall ice and things like that. We're seeing President Biden address those in a way that I would disagree with, but he's addressing those but probably 90% of the issues. They're Republicans and Democrats. To agree on and work together Secret Service funding. For example, FEMA funding tremendous degrees of cooperation. They're in a bipartisan matter. So, Congressman, Can I ask you?.

"Next hour, we'll be going through President Trump's farewell and what we can expect from a Biden administration. Nothing particularly wonderful. So the events went off without a hitch today, sort of an odd feeling, because obviously we were watching Inauguration take place in middle of pandemic. There is a military lockdown in Washington D. C about 15,000 troops in Washington D C this hour by the way, is sponsored by express deep in your data. Is your business protected? It expressed VPN dot com Flashman. Washington, D. C was largely locking down. The the people who are at the event or not only all mass, which is usual, but also they were all sitting quite far. Apart from one another. With that said the spectacle of it was still rather stunning, considering the saw these 400,000 flags in honor of the 400,000 people who have died of covert in the United States. The actual pageant and pomp of the thing we're still Pretty well done. And that that's what you would expect. I mean, to be frank with you. I'm not a big fan of pageant and pomp in any circumstances with regard to the presidency of the United States, simply because to me, the president ought to be treated like a plumber. I mean, we should swear men in the back of a taxi cab, and then he should just start plumbing as soon as he gets to the White House. All of this. He's the leader of the country in the conscience of the nation kind of seven. I prefer my family to be my conscience, but any case it is what it is. So the activities of the day lead off with Joe Biden being sworn in here was Joe Biden being sworn in as president. Now you got it. You got to give it to him. The fact is that this guy's been pretty persistent. He's been running for president. He was 30 years old. He's 172 years old. So that it just shows you that ambition, limitless ambition and enough time to make nearly anybody president here was a job. I was fourth in today. Please raise your right hand and repeat after me.

Okay. You could have, like a little fireplace screen on the test. Lynn. I love that. Hey, one of the best things about this program in particular is that we get Tonto. Interview celebrities and authors and even CEOs of public companies. When you guys email us and one of our producers, Greg Totter off, got an email from a listener or because it was a TV viewer about a company called Inspire M D, and they're probably traded on the stock symbol NSP R. There is inspire MD is in the cardio oId space changing the way cardio cardio cardio car car. It'd already a disease. This is lying down, and that's a tough one. But this is about strokes. It's about managing artery disease and here to talk about Marvin Flashman is the CEO of the company has been very generous with his time here to come on the air. Marvin, How are you, sir? Good to talk to you. I'm very well today. Thank you guys. I appreciate the opportunity. Yeah. Good intro. I appreciate you have some fans. Apparently they wanted they wanted. They wanted to see what you had to say. So we thought we'd bring out there can you talk about you know what you guys do and give us a You know, we're a couple of Johnny lunch buckets here, and the rest of our audience is much smarter than we are. So if you could kind of break down what you guys are all about what you guys were doing that inspire MD Sure, absolutely. Thanks for the opportunity. So inspiring ideas is a growing medical device company with a highly specialized, focused in stroke prevention and managing credit artery disease. That's that's an awfully big, bold statement by, um, But as as we all know, heart disease and strokes really account for the predominance of Really awful medical conditions, both death and disability and by way of our advanced platform of our stent technology called See Guard. In this really interesting, innovative design of applying mesh to the outside of our stead. We think we've created a breakthrough device that really is, has the opportunity to change standard of care. When it comes to help brought it order diseases managed and basically what you're doing is that's almost like that's that's a support system. Is it not? Sort of you're gonna stand that sort of creates the flow, But then that sort of supports the entire Biologics. Be around your vein and everything else. Talk about how that actually works for us, would you? Marvin? Yeah. So the simplistic view of this is it is a nightmare. All standard self expanding stand, which is pretty commonplace in vascular disease management. It's wrong Other but what's different about our solution is we have something called micro Net mesh. Which is for woven mesh outer layer about the thickness of a human hair, which is stitched to the outside, admitted and stitched to the outside of our state technology. Which prevents symbolic reactions or plan for protruding and breaking off during the standard procedure, So as many people know afterwards, sclerosis and artery disease grows over time, and what often happens is during the stent procedure. These particles of plant will break off and without On over later supporting filtration system. What ends up happening? Is these mini strokes post procedural, So right? You're right. It's a It's a very simplistic of it, but sophisticated solution. Hey, I We can't do an interview with a biotech bio pharma bio company without talking about the C word and that's Cove it, you know, obviously. You guys have been able to move the ball forward Little by little during this crazy 2020. Can you give us a top down looking what It's like being a being a bio farmer Biotech company in the middle of Pandemic Has it has it? I mean, you've got 35 years of medical experience, I'm sure you haven't seen him like this. You've been with the biggest companies there are and you've been with early stage companies as well. Give us your top down overview. What's what's happening, how we're doing and what it's like being a company in the middle of all this. So we're certainly an unprecedented times, guys, and I think the challenge for us has been wearing a touch business. When we're in the theater in the cath lab with our physicians. It's where we do our best work. We take a very consultative approach. Where hands on, we work with our physicians to do these procedures, so the challenge for us has been Just to sort of being locked out of that environment, and our physicians are frustrated Also, because obviously Covitz is dominated their environments as well that the good part of this for us is that these procedures for the most part, are elected. Most of the acute stroke center taking place are still being managed, but many of our procedures are elective procedures. And so it's not a question of whether or not the procedure will happen. It's a question of timing, and so we have taken this opportunity to continue to move the ball forward. Educate our physicians and work with our distributor partners to try to make ourselves available Aziz necessary And as you know, the world is sorting itself out. But when disease states occur, they have to be addressed, and it's all being sequenced. Now. The majority of our business is also outside of the U. S. It's in Europe. And and so they have been particularly hard hit early in the cycle, but are responding favorably as well. So it's It's been a challenge all half years. They're running medical device companies. They're all struggling with same Same effort, But we're still continued to offer solutions, and this is one real partnerships and credibility comes into his name is Marvin Slawson. He's the CEO of Inspire MD one of the companies that you guys asked us to interview and you can go to their website. Inspire them. The calm there publicly traded on the stock symbol in SPR. I gotta ask you Marvin about the FDA. I mean, I think we're all hoping the FBI's putting all of their resource is now into keeping us all healthy. But obviously they've had to put a fair amount of triage to use your parlance into Kobe. Right Are people like you being pushed aside because that's a very serious disease that you're there's gotta They have to be able to me. There's still cancer going on. They're still you know, there's still blood diseases going on. There's still heart disease and stroke. How did they? How are they managing in your opinion? Yeah, I think I think remarkably well, and we were actually quite fortunate that we got approval for our FDA trial during the worst part of the pandemic. In fact, we're thrilled to be able to initiate Pretty soon here on an approval from the FDA are clinical trial to enter the U. S market and this happened right in the middle of the coded crisis, And I think from regulatory perspective, they they've managed remarkably well in keeping all companies including ours on track and with breakthrough technologies and pipeline. It's actually worked my favorably for us. It's a lot of work. You know, we initiated the effort with the FDA over a year ago. And so we're thrilled to have an approval to move forward with our our clinical trial to enter the U. S market. Marvin.

Happy New Year. Among other things. January 1st is public Domain Day. That means copyrights expire on works from 95 years ago, so everybody is free to rewrite or remix or just play around with classic books and songs and more. NPR's Petra Mayer reports on what people have been doing with it all. So here's the thing with public Domain Day for 20 years. It didn't happen in 1998. Congress passed a law extending current copyrights from 75 to 95 years. And that meant that until two years ago, nothing new was coming into the public domain. That all changed on January 1st 2019. Since then, A flood of popular culture from the 19 twenties has become available early, silent movies, pop songs, books like the Prophet Mrs Dalloway in The Great Gatsby. So what are people doing with all this good stuff? You know, Like Gatsby, I was captivated by Nick That's author Michael Ferris Smith. His new novel, Nick comes out this month, and it imagines a life and a backstory for Gatsby's and it, Carraway. Smith says he was snagged by that moment at the end of the book, where Nick suddenly realizes it's his 30th birthday. And then right after that, he describes it as anticipating a decade of loneliness. And that is what really stuck me like When I read the decade of loneliness line I remember actually stopped there, and I said the book aside, Smith says he saw so many parallels between Nick's life and his own at that age that he decided to write next story, although he says he just assumed Gatsby was in the public domain. When he started writing five years ago. He was a little taken aback when his publishers told him the book couldn't come out until 2021. But Nick is one of the few really high profile works to surface from that flood of new public domain material. Jennifer Jenkins is the director of the Center for the Study of the Public domain at Duke Law School. She says. A lot of what's happening is on a smaller scale. I've had e mails from parents who say Hey, my high school kids, an amazing musician. And guess what, In another Rhapsody in Blue is free. He's going to play it. He's going to re imagine it and maybe we'll put it on YouTube. Some publishers have put out new editions of books like Khalil Gibran's The Prophet, Jenkins says the works become more available and in more editions, and that is self feeds creativity, So we do absolutely no, that happens. So why aren't there more Nick's out there? Glenn Fleishman is a journalist who's covered copyright issues. There's some very popular weird copyright cases that involved lots of lawsuits. And I think it makes people worry. Flashman has experienced some of that worry himself. He loves the classic song. Yes, we have no bananas, which entered the public domain on January 1st 2019. So he organized some friends at a New year's party to sing it, And they put the song up on YouTube. Moments after midnight on January 1st wait..

"And the listeners of KQED. This is morning edition from NPR News. I'm Layla fold in and I'm Steve Inskeep. Happy New Year. Among other things. January 1st is public Domain Day. That means copyrights expire on works from 95 years ago, so everybody is free to rewrite or remix or just play around with classic books and songs and more. NPR's Petra Mayer reports on what people have been doing with it all. So here's the thing with public Domain Day for 20 years. It didn't happen in 1998. Congress passed a law extending current copyrights from 75 to 95 years. And that meant that until two years ago, nothing new was coming into the public domain. That all changed on January 1st 2019. Since then, A flood of popular culture from the 19 twenties has become available early, silent movies, pop songs, books like the Prophet Mrs Dalloway in The Great Gatsby. So what are people doing with all this good stuff? You know, Like Gatsby, I was captivated by Nick That's author Michael Ferris Smith. His new novel, Nick comes out this month, and it imagines a life and a backstory for Gatsby's Nick Carraway. Smith says he was snagged by that moment at the end of the book, where Nick suddenly realizes it's his 30th birthday. And then right after that, he describes it as anticipating a decade of loneliness. And that is what really stuck me like When I read the decade of loneliness line I remember actually stopped there, and I said the book aside, Smith says he saw so many parallels between Nick's life and his own at that age that he decided to write next story, although he says he just assumed Gatsby was in the public domain. When he started writing five years ago. He was a little taken aback when his publishers told him the book couldn't come out until 2021. But Nick is one of the few really high profile works to surface from that flood of new public domain material. Jennifer Jenkins is the director of the Center for the Study of the Public domain at Duke Law School. She says. A lot of what's happening is on a smaller scale. I've had e mails from parents who say, Hey, my high school kids, an amazing musician. And guess what, you know now that Rhapsody in blue is free. He's going to play it. He's going to re imagine it and maybe we'll put it on YouTube. Some publishers have put out new editions of books like Khalil Gibran's The Prophet, Jenkins says the works become more available and in more editions, and that is self feeds creativity, So we do absolutely no, that happens. So why aren't there more Nick's out there? Glenn Fleishman is a journalist who's covered copyright issues. There's some very popular weird copyright cases that involved lots of lawsuits.

Why You Should Consider Audiobook Creation Exchange For Your Book

Why You Should Consider Audiobook Creation Exchange For Your Book

"What's happening? It's down here and I'm just tickled to death that you take a little bit of time out your day to spend a little bit of time with me this episode 78 and the first in the series on self-publishing an audiobook. We had been talking about self-publishing a book online for the past 16 weeks. So I I'm just I'm over it. There's other avenues we can look at but honestly, I just want to kind of switch over to them. Antibody book publishing if you're not there just yet. I really believe you should get there like ASAP and I'm going to give you some very good reasons here and stays episode. I know some of you might be thinking. Oh my gosh, it's overwhelming. There's so much stuff. I've gotta learn. I don't know. It's too expensive audio books are more important than ever. People are now consuming downloadable audio content through the ways of say podcasts and audiobooks. So you've got to get off the game now become an early adopter before this train takes off. I'm telling you that back prior to 2015. There was something that was called the Kindle Gold Rush to wear off everyone within their mother was publishing things on Kindle Direct publishing and making hand and money hand-over-fist easy for me to say Right. Now that's happening in audiobook publishing and if you are not getting in now, I really think you got to do it as soon as humanly possible and there's many options you can take advantage of one of the best places to start is going to be audiobook creation exchange now for brevity's sake I'm just going to call it a CX. So just remember that you need to remember audiable creation exchange is owned by Amazon. All right, originally started back in May of 2011 was actually put together by audible. So that's pretty interesting. In fact, they distribute audiobooks only two three platforms Audible and Amazon, of course and iTunes, which is kind of a peculiar relationship off considering that Amazon and apple are essentially competitors. In fact when you want to price match a book you want to drop it down to free publish it through apple and dead. Do It free there and then you'll have Amazon go ahead and price match fun fun fact, but here's the funny thing about iTunes you can tell that the competitors because you only get 25% royalty before a CX takes their cut. So yeah, that's right. You get twenty-five cents out of every dollar When you send it on over to Apple iTunes for your audiobook, so just just a heads up. There are other options. In other ways that you can make far more money as far as royalties go when you go into iTunes, I'm going to talk about that in future episodes for now. Let's keep on a CX so they actually serve as a Marketplace between a narrator's and rights holders. Now, that's the people that own the rights to a particular work most of the times if you're a person who's listening to this podcast, you're probably an author so you are actually a rights-holder. There are few ways that you can do narrator deals. Okay, you can do a finished price per hour right finished price per hour actually works like this. You have an audiobook let's say it's ninety five hundred words and maybe when it's read out loud, it's an hour's worth of listening content. That would be a finished our so you would essentially be paying a narrator per finished our for something like this. So let's say for instance I get a hold of my buddy Anthony Flashman and Anthony charges. Say two hundred two hundred fifty dollars per finished our I'm just saying this is a rough guesstimate. I'm not sure if that's what Anthony still charging but that means if I have for instance a month to our book that's going to run me $500 for him to do that book. Now some of you are kind of cringing you have to remember on the other side of things as a narrator. They're not just simply sitting down pressing record and calling it a day. They've got to go through your manuscript. They actually have to highlight certain areas. They have to prepare for it. They have to look up certain words and the pronunciation of those words and if you're dead, Fiction work. They're going to probably have to study the characters and figure out specific dialects or how they're going to deliver it, you know voice acting in general takes a lot of preparation
