"I'm going to take a deep breath first. Okay. I think pick it's pretty good. I like it. I'm not with you. I like them. I'm kind of in unpick it. You're not with me. So what are we hanging our hat on here? That's my first question. Accuracy. Toughness, what do we got? I mean, I think he's getting rid of the ball quickly. Poised to me is like, I don't feel hassled in the pocket. To me, he is willing to take a hit, but he still feels like he's hassled in the pocket. Like so much of what he has in terms of his target distribution right now is where's the big guy? Can I get a contested ball up in time? Yeah, which is somehow this offense works, right? That should be their offense. What the hell is that? Are they going to do that? If they had a real quarterback pick and looks awesome. But yeah, I think some of that is the function of the offense. But it's not like, and this was true of him that pit too. This was a narrative they had on a pit that wasn't true. It's not like he's a guy who stands in the pocket and goes one and two to three. He never has been, right? Look down one, try to get one open and then I'll start to get happy feet and I'll start to move. I don't mind that too much relative to what he's dealing with right now. At least the offensive line is bad. But I see like an accurate quarterback who's willing to take a hit. That's good. That'll make you some money in the league. Now what, like I said, what am I hanging my hat on? Arm strength isn't there. Athleticism, like these are all just like average traits for him. So he doesn't move very well. He doesn't explain the ball very well. Is he like moving safety with his eyes? He correcting stuff pre snapped. Like none of that's there for me right now. So like I have proof of concept that he'll do it in the NFL level. He'll throw a catchable ball. That'll keep you rostered. But besides that he hasn't done anything yet to me, where I'm like, yep, there it is. If Kenny Pickett successful in the league, that's what it'll look like. I haven't had that moment with him. Wow, that was an assassination of Kenny Pickett. Was it? I thought that was pretty harsh. Aw man, I was trying to kill you fans are coming after you now. Listen, first kept up in that bugs game before it got hurt. Kept them hanging around. My dad's a big steelers fan and he thinks he saw the end of that CEO's game. He thinks it's Mitch time now. He said, Mitch got motivated by the picket, you know, please don't get back. The only reason that happened was Mitch had no time to think about the fact that he was going in. They just put them out there and dropped in the cold water. They should just start him like two minutes before the game. And then surprise go in with that. I'd like pick it. I don't know. There's something about him I like. And I do think for what they need. I like their receivers and I just want to get the ball near them and let them go make some plays. That's the right don't make any mistakes. I agree with you. That's the right way to play. We disagree. What about what about the two guys that chiefs got? Because they had mcduffie and Carlos. So mcduffie is been hurt. Carlos is a solid player for them. Carlos just was always going to be tricky because he's one of these edges that you draft that's never going to be like an 8 plus sac guy, you're going to get that once every so often. But he's really good against the run. He does generate pressure that other people clean up. He's like a yeoman dude, you know what I'm saying? Just going with his lunch pail and get to work. So carloff has been big for them, especially because karlov just can bump inside and play a little bit of like interior rushing stuff, which keeps Chris Jones where you want him, which is between the guards, right? Remember last year that was screwing around and putting Chris Jones as that was dumb. Now they put naughty Jones and Carl off this inside and then they'll put Frank Clark as the one outside Russia and that makes more sense. So they've been good and Brian cook, their second round safety out of Cincinnati. He's learned on the fly, spags defense is tough to get your teeth into it. You do a lot of stuff as a safety in that defense. He's handling his best he can. Alec pierce, the receiver for the colts. He's flash. He's been solid. Luke fortner is the center of the jazz class man with Fortnite center. Devon Lloyd linebacker and Trayvon walker the edge. They hit on their first three in a big way. Lloyds got some warts, but they hit. And that's been a big part why I think they've been a little bit of a surprise. The falcons with London and then Arnold at the cady, their second round rusher, like some of these teams that have been a little bit better than we thought. A lot of it is early contributions from the rookies. And that's something the Patriots weren't getting in the last few years. And then they finally, they hit on a couple guys last year, and then this year, they really hit. Yeah, you look at the top 5 walker Hutchinson stingley sauce thibodeau. The worst pick in that group is the lion's comfort. Everybody else feels great. Hey, can you? He had that three sack game Hutch and everybody lost their minds. None of those sacks are quality. They're all clean up. They're all cleaned up some games, which like it's good to finish a play, but be to tackle. You gotta be a tackle one on one and then stack the quarterback. You're gonna be the number two overall pick. He hasn't done it yet. The lens are like hard knocks. Anybody remember when people really were fired up at the back? Talk me out of pat Bengals tees. All right, so I like the paths on the teeth. I like the past to handle it's gonna be a rough night for fields. The whole ballot check thing of like oh, you guys can't do this. Great. And then it's been tough. The soliloquy he put out on how well coached and how good the bears are. The classic sign that he does not respect you. Excited about that. The Bengals thing for me is that they lost DJ reader. Their nose tackle really important key to their run defense and also middle linebacker Logan Wilson, who they're kind of trying to convince us, oh, you might play this Sunday, but initial prognosis is that he's not going to be able to go. That's the heart of the run defense. And if you lose that, they've been susceptible to the run. You saw what the jets were able to do to them. The cowboys did this to them a little bit. They lost to the running game. Now you get the falcons. The falcons are just a nightmare to prepare for. Like, why are the falcons in 6 O against the spread? Because no other team runs the falcon stuff. So you have to get into work on Monday and be like, we got to learn a whole new freaking defense when they put two full backs back there. They were one of the option and they got all these condensed guys and we have to deal with pants. There's just so much to deal with that other teams don't give you that it's hard to prep for them over a week. That running game plus the weakness that the Bengals run defense is what freaks me out for that leg. So falcons have been a trustworthy team for me so far this year. I would hope that so there's 6 no gets to spread. That's about as trustworthy as it gets. It's been that and it's been their team total overs because that offense has worked. With that said, the moment I mention a team on this podcast, they immediately shoot themselves in the foot the next week. So maybe it's my pro falcons edge that will be a strong for the bank. Or maybe it's my fault. Maybe just the stink of me this season, just getting on you. Through 5 weeks, $1 million pixel was tanking and I was having a great year. And then week 6, I had the worst week of my last two years of NFL betting for me. And $1 million picks finally went up. So we're just, I mean, if Tampa beats Pittsburgh, I would have had a huge week. Holy smokes. I can not tell you the amount of times I like that in the Santa Fe Buccaneers are in that game. It was one of those games where I was 2018 and they're like, here goes Tampa for the two point.

"I love Sean Ryan too here. I really do. I don't know how to tackle though as a tactical as a guard. I don't know if top one in the garden need. Like, I don't know if they need to take a guard in the top 100, but now there are next picks one 34, one 58, like we're talking about getting a little bit low here in terms of when we're going to take a guy that could have the upside to be a guard. Starting guard in their system. So Joe junior was the third round pick, Shaq mason was a fourth round pick. So this is about where to have this conversation. I think, again, I think the tackle conversation is more pressing. I hear you. All right. All right. Well, yeah, fortner is still, there are still, I think rasheed walker could break the mold in terms of pens. Okay. Well, I know we have our always been on that angle that they don't love Penn State guys. I mean, we're just hammering the Big Ten right now. It's a good conference, so no it is. The second best conference in college football. We got to hit the SEC later in the Stratford. I think rasheed walker's got smarter potential. I mean, all these guys at this point need some work, right? One other thing I'd say about rasheed walker is that he made 32 starts. So he has a lot of experience. So that's a big thing too that I think that they would like at that spot, right? This is not a Bernard Graham and started 18 games. At a low level school of central Michigan, you know? So this is a guy that's got some experience to him. Yeah, I just want to make sure nobody else obvious fell. I don't really think so. Yeah, no. A couple months ago, David hill was first round pick. Remember that? Good times. Big Ten. Rasheed walker is a guy. I think they're going to tackle here. All right, let's try, let's take rasheed walk. All right, so while this zips through, you want to just pull up the board, refresh the top 100 there. Yes. So we just completed the top 100. We got crystal lava in the first round, fell in our laps, had to do it. Leo chenal, really, really good fit for the Patriots that linebacker plugs the gaps can rush the passer from multiple alignments can play some in space much better athletic tester than we expected. I think that he just checked so many boxes there. Zion McCollum. I really think ziya McCallum is going to be a stud in the NFL eventually. He's on the right coaching staff with the right coaches. I think the Patriots the way that they develop corners. I know they haven't had the best of luck at the top of the draft and corners, but I think that he's going to be a really good player for them. To me, I think ziya McCollum is Kyle Duggar two. Just a corner instead of a safety. I think it's exactly the same thing. Great athlete, great tape down at that level. Rasheed walker from Penn State grip strength, strong, burly guy. I think he's got good length. I think he's got good upper body strength. I don't know, maybe there is some upside there with his footwork and stuff like that. We're finding a little bit. I think you could get, you're going to get a really serviceable right tackle. I think maybe you can have a left tackle there too as well..

"At the end of the day, they need three to four instant playmakers. I think they got three here. So there's that. Okay. All right, that's a positive spin on this one. All right, I'm gonna try to be nice. Here we go. Here's another one another Dax hill at the top of the draft, right? We got Dax here. I don't know. Well, trade down, right? We gotta trade down, grabbing Dax hill. Here, let's see if I can do it. No, I can't. That's a big deal. I'm trying to find out my phone. Just keep going. It's a screenshot of a cell phone, right? So we got I'll read it out in Dax hill, Leo Xiao, johny Zion McCollum, Luke fortner, Neil Farrell junior, kirin Williams villas Jones. Jason Poe, who's gotten a ton of love lately. Really good athlete. Really, probably the best pulling guard in the entire draft that maybe they can get in the 5th or 6th round. I really like Jason Poe a lot. So a couple of picks here I like on day three. Obviously everybody knows my love for real is Jones. Jason Poe, I really like as in their scheme as a power pulling guard, what do you think about Kyren Williams? I know the 40 times going to scare some teams off, but that kind of feels like where the Patriots pounce, right? Oh yeah, you're so worried about the four 6. We don't give a crap, right? We're going to take them anyway because it's a good football player. One of the best pass protectors that I can think of coming out of the draft at running back in a long time, like really a difference maker impact pass protector. And a really good receiver as well. We haven't talked a ton about backs. We haven't talked a ton about car and Williams. I think he's an interesting player for them. Yeah, he is. He's Tyler Beatty, but slower. And they're probably going to go on the same range, right? Anything that he boxed better already than pretty much anybody in this draft, right? So that's a big difference. When I look at this class though, I mean, you picked up future assets, daxton hill, day one, Leo Chanel, day one, Zion McCollum probably contributing by the end of year one. John metchie probably contributing by the end of year one. It's a decent class..

"They don't want necessarily the bruising run blocker like they've had and back mason on the right side. Zack, I think his tape is kind of like a an Isaiah win coming out of college in a lot of ways. He has some of those trades to him. He's got some positional versatility. He's a little bit bigger if I remember correctly than somebody like fortner, which might be better in this spot. They also drafted Justin Haran from wake forest. So they clearly like that program a little bit on the offensive line. Either one of those guys in this spy, I think are good picks. I lead towards Tom just because I think that he's more of that tackle guard versatility type of player, whereas foreigners more like center guard. And I think what they're looking for is more of a guy that can play inside or outside versus playing all three interior spots. So Tom's actually smaller than fortner. Nice three O 7 at the combine. Interesting. Ed Ingram is still there too, by the way. I tried to get him to show up here. I forget exactly what it is. I don't think we're missing anybody else. Marquise Hayes maybe, but pick your starting guard here, Evan. Zach Tom, who is it? Zach Tom's actually. Yeah. All right. Yeah. And there's that. All right, and we have to back to back picks, so we don't really have to, that's why I did it like that. I take the line, take the offensive side first, whatever. Now let's go over to the defense side. And here's what we have. I think it's between Malone or feral. I know it's probably a little bit of a reach for both. I think Malone right now Malone was so productive oncology and 17 tackles for loss last season. He had 20 tackles for loss two years ago. He just knows how to get in the backfield. I think you can cure him up as a run defender. He's big enough..

"I think we're going in the trenches here. So you want this whole board right now. We're picking again in 6 picks and the whole top of the board is offensive lineman. If we lose Tom, like fortner still here. Yeah, I think you're Ryan. I think all those guys are in a tier, right? Even Ingram from LSU's got some off field stuff that you have to look into, but all those guys are level players. So whoever gets to 91, assuming that the board doesn't really screw us and they don't go all in the next 5 picks. I think that's fine. So I think we grow, I think we go edge or defensive line here. Right, so that's why I was going to say, are those four are going to go in 5 picks. I'll take the risk, especially like buffaloes drafting alignment, I guess the Titans might, we didn't see what they did further up there. So if we're going defensive interior edge, again, I really like Malone. I would go Malone or feral, I think. Yeah, so maja Sanders is another interesting player. He was sick at the combine. I think was the story and he lost a lot of weight. It just was a weird combine for him, but he's a really good edge dresser too. Feral, I know there's a lot of positive reviews from him and senior bowl guy, somebody that scouts are high on and Malone, I use this comparison the other day and I know people are not gonna like it, but he reminds me a lot of Derek rivers coming out, but obviously without the knee and without the injury history and all that kind of stuff. Whoever's in that injury is free in college, but you just hope that the injuries go better for a guy like D'angelo Malone than they did for Derek rivers. He's a little bit more of like a rush linebacker than what I think they truly need in that spot, but I think this might be a little bit early.

"I don't hate adding. I think it's more in the fourth round. Okay. I think two top 100 nicks when you have the need to tackle is a little much. Let's look at the let's look at the rest of the O line board here. So they do have, this is just guards. They do have Anita guard. They might like coles strange. I could see them liking Cole stray and hang on. I want to, what are the other linebacker or maybe like, do you not call safety yeah, any third D line on there? So here's what we're working with. Here's the thing about coal strange that I find very interesting. Coal strange played some center. Remember last year when Bill gushed about having that extra pair of center eyes on the field can make a difference? Yeah. I wonder if he'd make a point of adding a collegiate center to fill that guard role. I think that a guy like coles strange could play day one guard. Like I think he could be your starting out with Luke fortner could be that too though. But you might be able to get in the fourth round. But our pick in the fourth rate, it's not for a bit. You know, that's Luke for around 100 is a day one starter. Potentially. You could get him into camp and he could be the starting left guard as a rookie. Well, look, if you're going to take a day one starter at 85, that's a pretty darn good pick. I wish that he could play tackle two in a pinch, but I guess I'm being a little bit. I mean, he didn't college. I think like as a depth option he could. He's not going to start, right? But it's a cold strange. Yeah, listen, I made the first three pixel. You've convinced me that as well. Can you pull up? Can you pull up just refresh? I'm going to pause it real quick. The board so far, who we've taken? Yeah, I'm there it goes. Unless this thing raises, there's a lot of open screens here. Yeah. All right. So here's what we did the top 100. We still could use a tackle safety linebacker, maybe another wide receiver. Yeah. Yeah, I think I would love to get another wide receiver here in the fourth round at the board, works out. That would be would be a really nice pick. I also wouldn't mind going tackle and doubling up in the middle rounds on offensive line to kind of show that thing up, right? So I'll pull.

"Prosecution related to the two 7 37 max crashes that killed 346 people in 2018 Boeing's former chief test pilot Mark fawkner has been charged with deceiving federal regulators about the flight control system that was later linked to both tragedies After faulkner pleaded not guilty his attorney David Gerhard said his client did not lie and did not cause the crashes Everyone who was affected by this tragedy deserved a search for the truth not a search for a scapegoat Joining me is former federal prosecutor Mark lytle a partner at Nixon Peabody Mark prosecutors have a trail of what seems like incriminating emails from faulkner complaining about the max software system the mcas that it was designed by clowns who in turn are supervised by monkeys and bragging about using Jedi mind tricks on regulators Will those be an important part of the case against him Well it depends you know certainly the case is an example that continues to show up in the modern era with email and electronic communications where people sort of just say what's on their mind They don't think about what they're saying So certainly some of those statements by fork are going to be embarrassing I would expect that the government would try to use those to the extent that they put knowledge in forkers head about the mcas failure or the mcas stimulation that he learned about I expected defense attorneys would try to limit that because it might be prejudicial or not relevant really to the charges In one he says I basically lied to the regulators unknowingly Does that cut for him or against him It cuts both ways The way it cuts against him is it's his statement acknowledging that he's received this new disclosure internally about where the mcas operates and what circumstances which is significantly broader than what Boeing had previously known and or disclosed the FAA So it goes against him in that way That's the marker where he's saying he knew about this And it sets the stage for future allegations that later on he didn't tell the SAA about it It goes for him because this word that he added unknowingly is sort of his statement that like wow I've had all these conversations the FAA and they told me all this stuff internally about the mcas but now it's different and now they're going to say I lied I didn't lie You know I just didn't know about it The email about Jedi mind tricking regulators was to an FAA official Does that seem to suggest that the FAA knew or should have known about changes to the mcas It wasn't like the FAA was totally in the dark here Yeah this is a challenging indictment for the government to bring on a number of levels But clearly before any of these charges came out obviously during the scope of the FA investigations of those two crashes and how they occurred clearly there were a lot of criticism of the FAA certification process that they weren't hands on that they weren't involved in certifying aircraft enough that as a regulator they should have been much more involved This Jedi mind statement puts a number of people in the FAA on notice that they should look harder at this They should have taken this and said wait what do we got here So clearly when fork goes on trial there's going to be a lot of effort by his attorneys I would expect to actually put the SAA on trying Faulkner is a mid level employee It's kind of hard to imagine that all this happens solely because of his actions or inactions That's right That's one of the real shortcomings of trying to charge one person in an environment where when you look at the indictment itself there's some emails by him where he's worried that he's going to cost Boeing millions of dollars and clearly there's an environment there where you've got an employee who's worried about that and maybe that's infringing his judgment But more to the legal point these wire fraud counts and this SAA fraud a critical element to these charges are at fortner intended to defraud somebody of money or property That's going to be really difficult It's clear that he lied and it's clear that he made some false statements and omissions mostly omissions but to say that he wanted to sort of make money through those lies It looks apparently that he's a mid level employee who's worried about his reputation or worried about a reputation that results in people saying he cost the company money and that's not enough to say he intended to defraud airline customers of Boeing What are the other elements that prosecutors have to prove For example is materiality an element It is materiality is an element in every broad case and they're going to have to show that but for these false statements things would have been different It's really hard to say because all of the statements in the indictment that alleged fortner committed fraud there really about omission They described a couple of different interactions that pork nurse had with the FAA after he learned about the mcas problems where he didn't disclose it And what is the context of those conversations it's really rare to charge a case just based on omissions Usually you're looking for affirmative false statements And omissions make it difficult to prove that somebody had a material fall statement too Well there's always a possibility of a plague Do you think that the prosecutors might be looking to flip him They might but this was a pretty extensive investigation And when the company entered into the settlement it would appear that Boeing did a pretty extensive internal investigation and cooperated with the government extensively So I would think that they have all the information that this is probably going to be the only charge coming out of it Thanks Mark That's Mark lidle of Nixon

"Is Bloomberg law with June Grosjean from Bloomberg radio I've been talking to Mark lytle of Nixon Peabody about the Boeing pilot charged with deceiving U.S. aviation regulators in the first prosecution related to two fatal 7 37 max accidents in 2018 What are the other elements that prosecutors have to prove For example is materiality an element It is Materiality is an element in every broad case and they're going to have to show that but for these false statements things would have been different The FAA would have been different It's really hard to say because all of the statements allegations in the indictment that alleged fortner committed fraud there really about omissions and they're not clear they describe a couple of different interactions that forkner had had

charge a case just based on omissions Usually you're looking for affirmative false statements And that makes it omissions make it difficult to prove that somebody had a material fall statement too It makes it more difficult I want to talk about Boeing settlement with the Justice Department which didn't cite for nearby name How will that play or will it play into his case No I haven't been able to review the settlement that much But it's certainly going to play a role I think generally for a defense of an individual to have a company for if you're certainly likely to blame Boeing and the pressures he received internally as he noted in some of his emails that he had pressure to not cost the company money And the defense attorney is going to maybe not legally have a basis to bring Boeing into the matter but it's certainly going to be something that's going to be in the background of the trial about how did someone how did this large company just have one person end up being charged criminally And how did what were the terms of Boeing's admissions that Boeing make any admissions in that settlement there's certainly their payment of money is it fair the defense attorney might raise Is it fair that Boeing doesn't receive criminal charges when a mid level employee does Or what is what looks like it appears to be an institution institutional breakdown So will the jury have to believe that he was a rogue employee who was carrying this out by himself or can they believe others were at fault as well and still find him guilty The jury can believe that others were at fault as well and still find him guilty It just goes to the sense of I think the arguments that the defense attorneys are likely to make are that the jury will appeal to the jury's sense of fairness And a jury can jury can nullify a verdict for any reason Now they get instructions from the court to follow the instructions and apply the elements of each charge to the facts proven at the trial But if the jury gets the sense that there's not fairness here it could really go the wrong way for the government You are a former federal prosecutor Would you rather be the prosecution or the defense Which side do you think has a stronger case Well this would be a tough one because in this case the crashes were so tragic the loss of life unnecessarily occurred and clearly Foraker had knowledge of this problem that could have prevented those crashes But it's clear that many other people knew or should have known about this and the defense are going to make a real big part of this case about the FAA and those FAA agents are going to have to testify a trial and they're going to be scorched on cross examination And it's likely I would think forkner could be convicted even if others weren't charged were involved when I charged in the case But I think that the jury it's going to be tough for the jury to go forward If the defense is able to get into their arguments the fact that foreigners kind of escape go Is there a possible There's always a possibility of a play do you think that the prosecutors might be looking to flip him They might This was a but this was a pretty extensive investigation and when the company entered into the settlement And again I haven't read the terms going settlement It would appear that Boeing did a pretty extensive internal investigation and cooperated with the government Extensively So I would think that I would think that they have all the information that this is probably going to be the only charge coming out of it Really because even Peter di fazio the Democrat from Oregon said senior leaders throughout Boeing are responsible for the culture of concealment that ultimately led to the 7 37 max crashes He's saying this shouldn't be the only indictment I think he's right I think it shouldn't be the only indictment but from reading the fact that Boeing that Boeing was allowed to settle and that Boeing's I would expect Boeing would have done a really thorough internal investigation into their compliance and that they would have done extent to be allowed to settle like this they would have extensively cooperated with the government So my expectation based on my experience the charges that came out now would have been inclusive of all of the people they felt they could make a charge and had a reasonable likelihood of conviction at trial Things could change of course and maybe could provide conversations that weren't recorded in email or something that the government doesn't have So of course that could always happen But I'm surprised it's only four here but I would also be surprised if other people were charged in this case What kind of sentence is he looking at Sentencing guidelines are with fraud cases are triggered and tied to what the loss amount was to the victim of the crime If he gets convicted and there have sentencing the defense and the prosecution are going to have a lot of sparring over weather forkner is accountable for the loss that these airlines suffered as a result of the crashes Their liability to passengers also that Boeing settlement 2.5 billion clearly Boeing is providing that amount and fortunate would argue after convicted that sentencing that he wasn't responsible for these losses He would argue for a much lower sentence than maybe the guidelines Otherwise if it's the whole amount he's going to have very high guidelines probably up to life in prison I don't expect a judge to give him that amount of time I think the judge would probably look at this and find he was a mid level employee But there certainly was a lot of loss of life The number of people who died in these crashes is really horrific So I would expect significant sentence maybe between 5 and ten years Thanks Mark That's Mark lidl of Nixon Peabody.

Back up a second. Hang on a second. Hang on a second. Who are you? Who are you with? And what do you talking about? My name is John Gordon. There's a group of 17 of us that invested in land between halfway between huddle and Taylor next to an electric substation to build a 220 megawatts. Um, uh, reciprocating engine diesel type, uh, power plant because we know her cot is 5000 megawatts short of their capacity. That's why you've got everybody's is out of power. Uh, they're turned off because ERCOT doesn't have the reserves and they've been lying to the public. I've been telling everybody this. I even told it to the ERCOT leaderships face down in a South Texas conference. You 5000 megawatts. We wouldn't be having people out if they'd be building the reserve capacity.

That means that Texas environment T c E kids, The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has given us a clear permit to build the plant and run it. So what's the holdup?

"When i was in like a freshman college and it didn't go very well A just wasn't my thing. But what i discovered through the process of trying to be a composer. It was that i. I love learning other people's music. I love learning how they came up with at their system. They're you know they're discovering their language especially the twentieth and twentieth centuries where music is really. There's so many little 'isms impressionism expressionism. There's minimalism and there's individual composers that are islands in into himself. So i loved learning how music works and i was inspired by the new ideas that somebody could come up with to make something really expressive in beautiful with completely new language. And i wanted to share that with my students. I've also i've i've at some of my downtime or darker times or more frustrating times of my fledgling career here. I get bogged down by all that. Logistical stuff we talked about and it just felt like day to day stuff and when i finding to when i started to really embrace a logistical stuff was when i realized that that could be my creative. Because i'm not a composer that can be my creative thing my creative activity which is to create events to create programs and to bring creative other creative people together so i think in that data so wonderful for my own spirit. Having i feel that the there's a major Problem with our education system in that fundamental education systems kids in school up from elementary. Maybe through college that. It's and i'm very much paraphrasing sir. Ken robertson here. I'm reading one of his books. But basically we are training people to be workers. That was the whole point of education system before that people just weren't educated right before the industrial revolution. People didn't go to school. There was no such thing unless you were going to be a priest or unless you had a private tutor because you were very wealthy You will not educate and then can become in. It became important to have workers that were able to be literate. that could read instructions to read. Manuals could operate machinery..

Oh he's really you know he's a straight shooter and i like working with him when we come up with something good so that you have to ask to ask for money. You have to know how to ask for money right. And that's that was that. I that first meeting i had with the padre was. Hey what's i need. I need somebody from afghanistan he said. And how you kind of great mentorship moment there. So moving forward now to what what i do is an orchestra now. You know as an assistant conductor of the symphony and also the music director of youth orchestra which is under the umbrella of the symphony Yeah there's a lot of staff members that you have to work with and you know it's it's the same thing it's all about working with people and we can't. I don't think anybody has ever in the past but able to just wall themselves off and just be a pure artist. Even beethoven had to struggle with publishers and try to find you know donors for his patrons for his work ultimately. There's always an audience so you have to find the audience. So it's it's yet that's the big thing you know. That's what's really difficult. Though as being a musician we have versus know doing another job.

"You need to find somebody who gets it. Just one person the research behind that and like knowing like what is that person's goals so that you can connect with them when you meet with them and you know thinking back to the initial summer that i was doing this you know when i found it i was actually staying on summer vacation so to speak from from mcgill. I was living in houston with my parents spending the summer with them and i would spend besides practicing three or four hours a day in the cello. I would spend a good two three hours on the phone calling. Family members calling anybody that i knew in in the iowa. Great lakes community. Where i wanted to do this festival asking them topics all over the place but basically saying hey. I have this idea. I want to start this festival. What do you recommend. Who do you recommend. I talk to and then they would tell me your name and then i would call that. It was anything from finding a pianist. Because i had to find somebody relatively local i found ended up. Planning somebody really wonderful in in In minneapolis which is you know driveable for our drive. Just in the west is drivable and so yeah it. It took a lot of a lot of. That's that's hot when you went entrepreneur. Basically you starting a thing. You wanna start a music festival. You want to start an orchestra. You just need to talk to lots of people and it's networking one one-on-one one essentially sounds like you're figuring out what your community needs. What your community. You have an idea of what you want to do but you have to serve the community so you have to find a way to to meld your idea into what the community needs and what they want and sometimes what they want and they need is not exactly the same people come up to me after our great lakes music concerts and say thank you so much for bringing this music here..

"There are options if you wanna be something called the five. Oh one c. Three which is what all symphony. Orchestras are for example You can you have to have a board of directors and depending on what state you're incorporating. There's certain Rules about that. But basically a board of directors they are the custodians of the organization Much like a board of directors any corporate business. They're the ones that oversee the The organization but you can get around that at least especially when you when you wanna start a nonprofit. It's much easier year to get going because you need to have a back backlog or a track record to convince the irs to let you inc a nonprofit so it's best to start with a fiscal sponsor. So maybe there's another foundation out. There that is sole purpose is to fund or two to house nonprofits under their umbrella like fractured. Atlas is an example. Right right so so the way that the the started i. I had always intended to make a nonprofit and we never got that point before. I moved on to work here. In sioux falls but what i basically the way i started this festival beyond having the idea was like okay. I'm going to do recital cello piano recital. I'm going to be the cellist. I need to hire pianist. And i'm looking for a venue to do this recital. So in the in the great is great lakes region. There's an art center there and they have a performing arts and it's a quite a nice. They have appropriate performing arts component to the programming as well as visual arts and i went to them and i said hey. I'd really like to to put this concert on you know. How can we make this work. There's probably some sort of fee for the use of the piano. Or whatever and they they basically convinced me not to do it. They're saying well we're more interested in. We're only interested in bringing axe from nashville you know having cover bands etc etc but you should go down and talk to the church. The father. Tom is really interested in classical music and have a really beautiful space. So that that was kind of like for the first nail in the coffin. Actually that ended up killing off the festival. Was you know that's a local. Performing arts center passed up an opportunity for really high class music to be performed in their space. And that just sort of kind of gives you example of sometimes people have different different agendas. So so then. I went down and i met with. Father brought my cello just walked in kind of cold meeting set up. And said hey. I'd like to to do a recital and can you help me raise some money. I'm going to need. I don't know whatever it was five hundred dollars from. And he said what about for you right question..

"I'm also an executive director of a music festival and here in sioux falls and so my my day is split up with you know coming up with musical ideas and also know grant writing and Recruitment of board members. It's really helpful to just have one very short in a couple of sentences in an email and if it requires more than that than you set up a phone call. I think it can actually accomplish. The the businesses needs to be taken care of more quickly over the phone or over zoom nowadays So yeah like top tip to hack. That is that. I've discovered just through people that i've interacted with that are really good. Not just marrying. But other other people that i've that are functioning at that really high level is that they they respond to emails pretty quickly but but with a really short answer and so i think that's more efficient. Just get to the crux of what you need to talk about an save the filagree for later so you mentioned this festival a couple times and can you tell me more about how you got involved with the festival And like recruiting board members in those kinds of responsibilities. What goes into all of that right. So so there's two festivals. That were that that i have experience working with The first on the first one is no longer really acting. I never officially candidate just sort of stopped So that one was called the great lakes music festival in boogie which is nearby to sue falls about two hours drive away. I have family there. It's it's You never would've thought that there would be this vacation. Spot of lakes and lake fun in the cornfields of i will but yet there it is. You can think the glaciers and last ice age for that little gem. So i grew up going there since i was a little kid. And you know when i was when i was still in school. I think i was before i came to the body. I was Finishing my cello degree at at mcgill and With a conversation with a friend of mine me thought you know. Divorce shot came to iowa in eighteen. Ninety three whatever Wouldn't it be cool to have a diversion festival. What we're trying to come up with a title that you know. Well there's mainly mozart mostly most about definitely divorce. Jacques about the go just with the geographic title but yeah. It was a festival that ran. It was never a nonprofit. Its own independent nonprofit at always has it was fiscally sponsored nonprofit so the fiscal sponsor was actually the arts committee at a local catholic church and the new backup and talk a little bit about how fiscal sponsorship works on case some listeners. I'm not a lawyer who don't quote me in. you know. This is your disclaimer but legal advice but yeah basically. There's a new. Us there are different types of nonprofits and the point of being non-profit is essentially. You don't have to pay taxes. And the people that give money to you. They can deduct that up to a certain level. They can deduct their their gift to the nonprofit From their own taxes so But you still have to report everything. And and there's a lot of scrutiny. That comes with nonprofits because it's clear that there could be a lot of fraud a great way to get around paying taxes. So that means that you have to have things very clear set up about what the mission of the organization is But there are a few options so if you for example if somebody wanted to start an orchestra or somebody wanted to start a music camp or music festival.
