You know we've always had an alcohol problem for a percentage of our population. we we developed enough and phetamine mean and a cocaine problem over the last. Twenty years, and in the last five, six years Oh actually even a little longer. An opiate problem has has become. Our most serious addiction challenge. Kind of the most common addiction issue that you see people coming into your center with. It it's interesting. I've run Iran the largest treatment center in Las. Vegas of. Gene. Years.

My last year or two I remember looking at pharmacy reports and we were all scratching our heads saying what is this Oxycontin and why did it not show up two years ago and now I remember when across the ten million dollar mark at the Insurance Company for monthly use so it really begins began spiking. Thirteen fourteen years ago. It became. Newsworthy in fashionable. Six seven years ago, and now we're a were still squarely in an opiate epidemic.

Kanye West Says He Wants Taylor Swift's Masters Returned to Her
"West. Conney. Let's I don't know if he's listening to crystals nightcap the chances are point zero, zero, zero, one percent, but he's out here. What we need him to do I don't know if he's all talk right now I'm really hoping he'll walk the walk but today he tweeted something that I have personally been hoping that he would tweet for the past few years. So he tweeted that he is going to personally see it that Taylor swift gets her masters back from Scooter Braun. He says Scooter Braun is a close family friend and that he believes Taylor should own her masters. So either Connie seeing my tweets or he's listening to our podcast or he seeing the swift that are attacking him on twitter or he's just. A good guy. No I do think he's a good guy. You guys know that I've been. Back and forth with Connie, it's been really hard to be a a loyal fan to him because of his past. But as of recent watching his interviews and stuff I feel like. What he saying makes sense I admire his passion and his perseverance. I think he is a genius I think sometimes geniuses. Think, way ahead of their time and I think that's where Connie's been stuck at because he did address the whole him wearing a make America. Great again, make America great again hat and He said that with that whole thing, he was just trying to show that just because you're I'm black just because you're black doesn't mean that you have to be a Democrat or follow the status quo like he wants to show that he can do whatever he wanted to do, and in that he did hurt people. He didn't really acknowledge that or apologize for hurting his fans that way and that was years ago. That was four years ago however I do understand and see where he's coming from in that aspect and now that he's saying that he wants. To help Taylor swift with her masters. Dare I say that I'm becoming a Connie Stan again like dare I he's also been tweeting about drake lot and Not. Going to lie. It does make him look a little bitter like it makes him look kind of like a hater. And I think. Maybe it's just because drake hasn't been responding publicly and I've been saying that like one here. Drake's going to say but drinking say nothing drake. He's a man of very little words drake. He'll put it all in his music. You know he told US exactly how he felt about too cautious with his latest song, which is called laugh now cry later right And I think the same is going to happen with this situation I. think that we're going to go new song from Drake and he's going to be subliminally addressing these things. Because It's just hard to stay silent for so long when you are. In the middle of. The biggest artists. Twitter outbursts, thoughts. This is what kind of an episode but not really again, I don't want to discredit him because I feel like he's saying facts saying what's true and I've said this and I started tweeting. A few days ago or was it weeks ago? So I just really WANNA. See what Drake's going to say I am happy that Kanye got his twitter back definitely gives us something to talk to and look forward to I'm happy that he's tweeting positively about Taylor Swift I'm happy that he's scooter bronze family friend. You know what I think about Scooter Braun. I think he's awful. I really. Think he's off for. I, think that he likes to play the victim I think that he likes to play innocent He knows that he has Justin Bieber on his back. He knows that he has day when Lavar. That's got his back and I just think it's really wrong what he did to Taylor buying her masters when. He knew that she couldn't do it herself I think it was really wrong i. think it was dirty that he was posting stuff on his social media saying you know high bought Taylor swift or his friend posted that like imagine his friend posted ella when your friend buys Taylor swift and it was like the article of him buying her masters and then Scooter Braun reposted that I thought that was very tasteless and kind of like rubbing it in Taylor's face and. Do, I think Kanye West is going to persuade Braun to give Taylor her masters no I I don't think that Scooter Braun is. An undercover narcissist

Friday 18 September
"Now, as we just heard, China's navy is acting live fire drills near the Taiwan Strait. There's little doubt about the intended audience because in the slender credit, where'd you file of us? President Donald Trump remains his phone call shortly after his election to President Chang of Taiwan the first time the US president or indeed president-elect had spoken to the Taiwanese counterpart since nine hundred, seventy, nine, president trump clearly understands that there is no more reliable way of winding. Up China then embracing Taiwan, which may be why he has now dispatched the highest ranking American envoy in decades kaethe crutch on the secretary of State for Economic Growth Energy and the environment, a rank which seems calibrated to annoy China even more by making any overt rage on their part appears somewhat silly one joined with more on this by Isabel Hilton CEO of China. Dialogue is a bill first of all the the visit of chief crash and I've allowed time for everybody to furiously Google is just trolling on America's part. And Up to a point you you left often you know one elements in the winding up of list, which is that he's there to attend the memorial service for former president of Taiwan, Li dung-wei who has counted as the most hated Taiwanese in Beijing because leading Guay was the man who really lead Taiwan to democracy and was also an advocate of Taiwan as kind of independent cultural and political entity from China. So he's really not very you know he's definitely not on the Christmas, Card List for sheeting pin and to pay tribute to him is pretty certainly would be read in Beijing as a as a a further effort crime. So what degree of C- Will Beijing be at over this visit? Well I think we're seeing it now. I mean a great deal of of rather dangerous firepower is buzzing around at the moment An. We've seen really since June kind of escalating provocation from China, in sort of entering various kind of buffer zones which are pretty much being respected for decades you know around Taiwan that you can you can threatened and rattler cage but on the whole, it's been recognized that if you if you cross certain. Lines then you are risking at least an accident so. I mean the the the problem was that you know. In. The last well, just today actually eighteen Chinese bomas an and find the jets and Taiwan's advance buffer zone and that caused the cost Taiwan to scramble its jet. You had a lot of very you know serious. Flying around and I think that. Is and that along with the naval exercises and and a great deal of rhetoric is probably as far as it will go. But you know we have seen a prolonged campaign for the last three or four years of diplomatic isolation of kind of steady pressure on Taiwan from China, and certainly this doesn't help. You correctly observed that the US envoy is there to attend the memorial service for a former Taiwanese president. He will also be meeting with the current Taiwanese president is likely that anything of actual substance is being discussed between the president of one country and the Under Secretary of state for you know whatever from the other one or is this again? Largely. Theatrical. I wouldn't count on it being largely theatrical If you know we, we've wh as you know, we have a kind of dealing confrontation between the US and China and some alarming voices in Washington. Are, advocating, for example, the United States should supply nuclear weapons to Taiwan, which would be pretty crazy move in my view. But. There is a commitment from the United States to supply to Taiwan such a defensive Capability as is required now, it would be quite easy to argue that in a situation of enhanced tension greater a military supplies, more more military supplies. Packs more advanced military supplies were required and I would expect that to be part of the conversation I would also expect at least saying went to be exploring the idea of more formal cooperation between Taiwan and the United States last US official. To visit, which was relatively recently that produced an agreement on of collaboration on health I think timing when would very much like to see a free trade agreement with the United States. So again, I think this quite a lot to discuss an I would be surprised if this visit took place without some of them being on the table is anything really likely to shift in the near future though in any direction where this is concerned is everybody involved not basically biting their tongues and one hopes. Metaphorically as well as literally holding their fire until election day in the United States and certainly hope so you know the the US position on Taiwan, which is a it's a treaty obligation to to make sure that Taiwan can defend itself. This doesn't actually commit the United States to coming to the defense of Taiwan, but there is a kind of strategic ambiguity in in this treaty, which is designed to stop Taiwan declaring independence and therefore provoking China to stop China assuming that were it to. Stage a military salt. The. United. States would stand by and and not come to the defense of Taiwan. So the ambiguity in the US position is designed to keep both sides. Calm. Under a trump administration of calm is not a highly valued factor in Washington's calculations but I think. That the hope would be in Washington that enough kind of chest bearing and beating. We'll just keep everybody from doing anything too rash said, he don't think that China would relish an armed conflict, but on the other hand if the United States and Taiwan scenes to provocative in Beijing, in order to satisfy, it's increasingly nationalist domestic opinion and a PLA that seems fairly rested at the moment they might feel obliged to do something and as soon as you do something in a situation like this, then your provoking something very, very dangerous indeed
Secular Strategies for Politics
"I'm joined in studio, the One and only Sarah Eleven. God I haven't heard that name in a long time. It's so great to be back. Gosh and it's weird. It's our first time in studio. Yes. You've done a actually come a little closer. You've done a lot of stuff with me, but it's always been over the phone would call in like every week back in the day and the old the old dogma debate days don't even call the show that anymore. but it's like. You've been so active in the political scene and it's funny that there's there are a lot of new people listen to the show now, who have no idea who you are, and then are some of the old school people who were like Sarah. Seeing a long lost cousin. Great. So have you been first and foremost good really well, I just moved to Los. Angeles. So. Thank you. Welcome to the fires and small quakes. It's so disappointing. The first week it was clear skies as beautiful and we were like Oh man we're going to go get our beach tent and and all this stuff, and then it's like now now it's. Hazy skies and it's really depressing and you know I sound like a very privilege right now. Go to the beach. The opposite effect for me the first six weeks I lived here it was rainy and cold, and it was like. I know it was six weeks straight in everybody everywhere I would go they would always go. It's never been like this. We don't know what's happening like it's never been like this I'm going. Yeah. Right and then sure enough it went seven months without raining or something it was gorgeous seventy five degrees every day for nine months out of the year or something, and then it rains again and I'm like, what's this falling on my car? This is bizarre. It is really is really rare that something like this happens, but it's that's what they said about. The last weekend were like this is the hottest weekend and all of all of the year and my place doesn't have air conditioning because it usually doesn't need it most people here that and they're like, why do you not have air conditioning? There are a lot of people go out here a little bit north of Hollywood. So where I am it's common to have AC but down actually on the beach, most people don't because it's like. Seventy S. Literally. Just crack window open your door in. It's fine. but last weekend. Right here where I am I say you a screen shot at one hundred seventeen degrees right here at this spot for you. It was one twenty-one. Few miles away. I can't even imagine one, hundred seventeen. I actually walked outside just to see what it was like literally like an oven it is. You just don't want to do anything used. and. I'll say it's still not as bad as like ninety six degrees in Texas. Because of the humidity humidity, you could take a shower and get out of the TUB and you're sweating and you feel disgusting. It is actually a swamp people forget. Reason more than one reason why it's So let's get into that. They remember you from a different organization. We don't have to dive into all of that, but you are now Founder and principal founder. If you wanted to say with or what, but you're now the founder of secular strategies. So let's get into a little bit of what that means because. I think more than ever. We need that right now just the name it says so much talk about what you do, what you were going to Asians. Sure. So you know I'm I'm really kind of like a meat and potatoes doer and always have been I'm I'm really most interested in just getting things done and getting them done as effectively in strategically as possible and I one of the inspirations for me to start my own company to work with. Clients focused on religious freedom separation of church and state was and you were part of this right in Texas in two thousand sixteen. When we got the secular caucus running that is now totally a pre- pretty much self reliant fundraising for themselves. I would say we spent maybe. A total of like five thousand dollars investing in that in that whole event and that that startup period and. Now, four years later that organization has you know a chair Vice Chair secretary treasurer is raising money got a resolution pass in two local counties van in conversion therapy in Texas. That is and more endorsing candidates. Remember correctly was was that the first ever secular caucus for advancement convention I gave a talk at that. I spoke. I Yeah I remember I remember being able to like I was just I got to say that I got to give a talk at the first ever everyone that's huge. Yeah and now they're like fully functioning. Yeah and now there's one in Nebraska just got one stood up in Florida. So they're they're secular Democrats of Florida and I'm working on. Virginia Colorado And Kentucky now, and we'll get into that in a second but I go back to twenty sixteen when I talk about what I'm doing today because from my perspective. That is one of the highest return on investment projects I have ever done.

So awesome that you guys just say I was thinking about this this podcast years ago and we called so much of what's happening in America right nine we actually have the records to prove it just like the audio records of trump. We have the records to prove that we called a lot of this four years ago two, thousand, sixteen I feel like it's five because I've aged horrible fifty. In our minds in two thousand fifteen but it came to fruition in two, thousand, sixteen but. But. Yeah we did we and one of the things that we talked about which we all have talked about is the role of the media and how you guys are getting it wrong in. So many ways we talk about that but let's start off with our first topic so. It was twenty twenty. I think. You know every single one of us is battling some level of low grade or high-grade. Depression? You know he's just kind seeping in for me. The end of the summer is really hard moving into yet another season and still being in lockdown You know also just the weight of these decades, centuries of racism and injustice in this country. and that is kind of the backdrop for our twenty twenty-nine election update. We are now less than sixty days away from the November election I know, right so both the trump and binding campaigns are really upping their games. We think, right. We'd Hoke we know the Republicans are the Democrats. This election season but hey, the pandering has started as well. I don't know if guys have seen this actually was one of the first people notified about this campaign video by by Joe Biden people that are associated with the Joe. Biden campaign it's a campaign salsa song called. Biden. Muscles. Things. Just just. Coming off. Applaud keeps going. By. By then? Okay. Okay. Okay. So Oh God that's going to be playing all over Kissimmee Florida. I'm telling you they're going all in I know the people that created it. Very committed they just basically put Biden on the hook for that stuff right there. Yeah ecological in. Los Angeles. Off The detention facility. So his own campaign song is saying he's about to do that. Yeah. So and then the other thing I just wanted to add. Yaas who Maria interviewed.

"For natural gas, you know Joe Biden wants to incentivize. Renewable energy he wants to create jobs he says, his client plans jobs, plan he. Is Providing, these incentives, retrofitting buildings, putting charging stations for electric vehicles around the country, but he doesn't WanNa. penalize. Fossil fuels. Coming up how to tackle the climate crisis without angering the fossil fuel industry. Emily clear that Joe Biden is facing a real challenge. On the one hand Donald Trump is claiming the Democrats plan could cost livelihood spiders promise to abolish the production of American oil call shale, and natural gas laying waste of the economies of Pennsylvania Ohio. Texas North Dakota, Oklahoma Colorado and New Mexico destroying stakes absolutely destroying states and others millions of jobs will be lost and energy prices will soar not. So message that may well chime with people in a state like Pennsylvania where you become this story and where a lot of people work in the mining. Industry Biden is trying to respond to that with his own economic arguments and it's not only a crisis. It's an enormous opportunity. An opportunity for America to lead the world and clean. Energy. And create millions of new good paying jobs in the process, and clearly he's all say facing pressure from the left of the party from people like Bernie Sanders in terms of climate change, we face an existential threat, not only here in America, but around the world and Alexandria Zhou Cortes this is not an elitist issue. This is a quality of life issue you how does he respond to their arguments around radical policies like a green new deal he's involving them in his plans so and writing rewriting his climate plan he had this unity taskforce with Bernie Sanders supporters, and he also worked with some of the staffers who had put together some of the. Strongest climate plans from his competitors in the Democratic primary, and so a lot of these people because they are actively working on this plane with him they are supporting it even though they think it has some shortfalls what shortfalls they think as they want him to say specifically when we're not gonNA have coal power in the US anymore, they want him to say specifically when we won't drive vehicles that run on gasoline I think what's hard for politicians in the US to do is to say fossil fuels will end. No one wants to say that publicly running for an election where they might have to get some votes for moderates votes from people in. Important Swing states like Pennsylvania where you become this story in a coal mine presumably Joe, Biden is worrying about voters in areas like that. Right and it's not just coal miners in places like Pennsylvania it's oil and gas industry, which is just about exploded there, and while Biden has a lot of support from some of the big unions like the electrical workers and auto workers, people who are working on things like pipe fitting and things that are central to natural gas are lot more worried about the future. Of. Their industry under a President Joe Biden essentially to environmentalists. What you're saying is Joe Biden has a package that looks quite good but not as good as they would hey, because he's really worried about this particular group of people are there reasons to be hopeful the he might move further in the direction that they want him to absolutely because when you look at how much has changed over the past few years and US politics and also in our understanding and awareness of the climate crisis, the plan that. Biden has put forward. No one could have imagined a major candidate putting forward a couple of years ago. I keep thinking about this interview that I had with Lonnie Stevenson who is the president of the Electrical Workers Union and the US, and they're endorsing both Biden and his climate plan and what he told me as you know when we decided to do this, we knew we would lose members. We know a lot of people wouldn't like it but the transition is happening. We have people who are members who? Worked in coal plants who have lost their jobs we know where this is headed and we wanna be at the table and figuring out what happens to us in the future. So if we're GONNA start losing oil and gas jobs, we want to be a part of that discussion to, and he says the only reason that he can support Biden is because Biden won't say that he wants to ban fracking and the Biden is open to things like capturing carbon from fossil fuel plants and keeping nuclear plants running. Given the people that Donald Trump has put in charge of the Environmental Protection Agency given. The regulations that have been welcomed back given the decision over the Paris Agreement. How bad have the past four years been? For the environment. For the climate problem, they've been about as bad as they could be from the US government and. We've basically seen that we continue to have emissions reductions, but there's just totally flat line and the next president if it's Joe, Biden he will have to. Really work very quickly, not just to write new regulations and issue executive orders and try to reverse the things that trump has done but to work with Congress to get substantial legislation under way to..

"From. Dornoch. So I guess, I want to go back to your now study for your partly for your book of rising authoritarianism in the in these other countries and since Belarus's top of mind do you think that? You know when you have this crushing realization that we had elected trump. That's sort of true. However, you define we and I know we're not meant to dismiss the electoral college but there has been an uncanny nece about trump's an uneasiness about his legitimacy that it sort of like like the Aaron Sorkin like deep down. We don't talk about it at cocktail parties like you'll start take sound like Louise. Mansur something. If you start if you if you if you rail on about ill-judged. Russian interference. Exactly. And also you know good old gerrymandering voter suppression and some of the discontinuities in the in the in the voting, and of course, the fact that the majority overwhelming majority voted for trump opponent. So when we're taking the temperature of the country, it's weird to say. You know the most important thing about Lance Armstrong is he was such a great cyclist that he won all those races. You're leaving out this major thing that where there's hacks, there's in this case, Russian interference and I don't know what to make of that is has the illegitimacy questions sort of dog do you through this time and also it helps me when I sort of read the country especially now when trump's approval so far down but when I sort of read the country to think. You Know He. He cheated his way to power and that means that most of us. And most of US went out for Hillary Clinton. You know like just when we're trying to understand the country, maybe we should try to understand why. So many of us supported Hillary Clinton, and it was a referendum on Obama we were going to have. We were all wanted another. Four years of you know Obama and that I, think maybe a little harder on Russia and that I think was really incredibly interesting and Somehow, just jumped into well I. Guess the country's All red, and now we need to talk to everyone about their economic insecurity and kind of feel their feel out racist. We gotta go to the West Virginia diner to to somebody who hasn't voted for a Democrat in fifty years Yeah. I mean you know I traveled a lot around the world when my my memoir came out and I'd get these questions and it always earnestly explain that Barack Obama had a sixty percent approval rating at the end that Hillary got more votes that the there wasn't a dramatic shift in public opinion the US. Here's how I look at it. One way to understand what's happened in the US. is to look at other countries. So let's look at hungry. In Two thousand ten Victor Oregon gets elected Prime Minister of Hungary riding a wave of right wing populism in response to the financial crisis. Then sets up a corrupt system where he in Richardson Cronies who then fund his politics, they buy the media and turn it into propaganda organs for for propaganda organs for Bonn.

"Hasim, what is down trump done to model democracy as something is an attractive force so that allies of Vladimir Putin's like the guy in Belarus under pressure right now you'll some heat. This is what Putin wants. He wants a discredited demoralized distracted America that is not setting a democratic exempt. Yeah. I mean the the moral authority that we I think squandered on. Election Day. I had Oslo. Bali, who is a friend of mine? Who teaches at UCLA was I think my first guest when I when I started hosting the show and she was November tenth or eleventh or something, and she said the pox Americana is over and you know we need to take a breath and say what are our commitments now as as far as individuals as citizens and what are kind of professional commitments or? Political commitments now that that has dissolved and I think. Pox Americana just a great phrase to revive their because we know we lost a lot on that day and in the last four years, but it's hard to put our fingers on it. Exactly. Right like like we didn't have we didn't have harmony in the homeland even in two thousand fifteen you know the idea that we're polarized you know tell that to the birth irs hoop out this a long time or the truth irs or whoever else and crisco batch, and then the idea that we are, you know that we've lost moral authority I mean I think you know at least the Islamic world thought that we were morally bankrupt back then and And I think Europe was suspicious of US although you know it's hard to say. But in any case, pox Americana is something that was just an article of faith with with us as we came of age you and me and does seem to be kind of gone now. So I want to just talk about the dovetailing of your own professional and political commitments since two thousand sixteen. So maybe just take us back to election night. Did it instantly on you? As it did on Professor Bali that you you would have to make some changes and you'd have to find out where to be most effective, and also what were you most afraid of? It did and. The way I'd up kind of the version of what you said which I agree with is I always try to explain to Americans as someone who travels a lot. It's not the fact that Donald Trump is president that is so problematic. It's the fact that we elected Donald trump president and that's something that can never be undone and it it calls into question everything about American leadership in the world because. We have this this awesome power the world has kind of not only because of our military but the world is kind of generally looked to us to set the direction even if they don't like our policies and they hated the Iraq war and they they blame for the financial crisis. Yeah. But in a way, trump is worse because it just showed such a profound irresponsibility. That we would let someone like that get to the highest most powerful office in the history of the world in that election night and I I knew I'd seen the kind of radicalization that had taken place in the Republican..

"That's why you've had much more provocative. Iranian actions across the Middle East and we've been at the brink of war with Iran like twice including bizarrely during covert seems like forever ago. But in January instead of focusing on getting this virus control Donald Trump was assassinating running general and literally inviting t lands. Sorry a ballistic missiles raining down on American facility in Iraq. So That's how close we've gotten already and it has been very painful to watch because it was very predictable that this is what would happen if they pulled out. Now, of course, reversing anything you did and I said this beforehand but we're the roughly the four year anniversary of the Republican National Convention that nominated trump but which also newt gingrich cited the piece about your I. Don't know if he was very strange and it was at the end of his, you know he he cited the piece in which you were. This was going to say spend golly but it was. Something more intense, Rasputin. Yes. You to Barack Obama and that you had. Yes sold a bill of goods to the American people who you know were would have all opposed the deal and this was part of the thing that that trump would rectify. Okay. So turning on the Obama Administration during all that on its head doing stupid shit with abandoned was one of trump's goals and getting out of the deal it what. What relationship did it bear? His contempt for the deal. How did it fit into his relationship with President Vladimir Putin of the Russian Federation in your view. It's an interesting question. You know I think that the Russians obviously were part of the Iran nuclear agreement in supportive of to an extent. But when people always ask me like what does Putin want like? Why did he put all this investment into trump? Did he want to get the sanctions lifted over Ukraine? I it's not that like what Putin wants is to put the US basically out of business as a superpower. He wants US divided from our allies. He wants US distracted. From whatever it is, Putin wants to be doing and he wants us to discredit democracy generally because democracy itself is a threat to vibrant Putin because he doesn't want. Democracy to come to Russia and this fixation did the United States has with Iran is very good for Russia and China because think about how illogical it's GonNa look to history that the most powerful country in history of the world, which is what the United States was after the Cold War I. think that's a was now was completely obsessed with like a medium sized country in the Middle East and not China. Not Russia. So to see the US completely divided from our European allies. In Iran deal leaving the Iran deal was a major rupture with France United Kingdom and Germany That's Bodmer. Putin's interest seeing the United States like. On Iran and and at the constantly the brink of war in the Middle East and you know here we are in twenty twenty years after nine eleven and we're still Y- preoccupied with this one region of the world.

"What was part of? It's interesting that trump basically gave life to every criticism of me and Obama like everything they said about the Iran deal everything about Paris everything's, of Cuba, opening will they got to do whatever they wanted right and so so you know the trump presidency is the manifestation of by worst nightmare sense like think of your worst troll in life becomes the president states right and they're. Very Determined I. Mean Not all my trolls I. Think are determined. They're not fixated on me enough that they would want to just reverse everything I've gone from the color of my drapes to you know my hairstyle but because of trump's fixation on Obama as his white whale, he did want to reverse everything. So don't do stupid shit becomes. Let's see what is it again reversing it do stupid Shit as possible. Exactly. Max Out on the stupid shit and then also reverse the Iran deal because it has Obama's name on it and so on I agree with you. If you know I think I tweeted one time like one thing we have learned from this time have been the virtues of the Iran deal now that we're without it that was accomplishing a lot in. The region since since two thousand sixteen did you expect the deal to to really follow park has had some support on the right and I think at the very beginning of trump you might have thought he's got his eye focused on the southern border or these other things that he'd really run on an inspite of the Michael Flynn commitment to stamping out radical Islamic terrorism they. Maybe wouldn't do this take away the Iran deal. How did that evolve for you when you saw must really going down well so when when Flynn got ousted after fifteen days, there was about a year when McMaster was the national skirt advisor Mattis's at defense were they were clearly doing everything they could to save the Iran deal. They didn't want the risk of leaving which by the way was ironic because mattis is critical of the Rondo on came out it just shows you when you're. Actually empower, you might prefer to have an arms control agreement place. Yeah. So I actually thought there was a fighting chance of the thing could survive, but to trump, it was interesting how the Iran deal was. So central to just kind of their narrative about Obama and his foreign policy and his weakness in his coddling of quote unquote radical Islam. You could tell the trump wasn't going to give it up and then John Bolton became national skirt advisor. The thing is toast. Of. What's been interesting in watching it play out is the arguments that we made that they called dishonest at the time were essentially that it's either this deal or the Iranians advanced their program. If you leave the deal, you're going to strengthen the hardliners in Iran and you're going to risk war and. Literally all those all arguments that they said were so dishonest and said, I can constructed a totally fake echo chamber to make those arguments, but they've all happened. Iran is restarted its nuclear program. The hardliners are clearly in charge there..

"These next seventy, six days will echo through generations to come. Hello and welcome to trump cast I'm Virginia Heffernan. Steve. Bannon. Chief Carney has been arrested. Federal prosecutors. That's right. Nabbed. Bannon at everyone's favourite javert joint the southern district of new. York remember. That's the oldest district in the land at trump cast favorite. It's older than the Supreme Court and it first convened on November third seventeen, eighty nine and has been collaring baddies like bannon ever since and by the way you know the first traitor they nabbed in SDN y Seventeen eighty-nine probably looked like Steve bannon except in a shabby Red Tory code and I'm getting carried away because by Bannon. And they also got him for the right thing it's not for trying to build a wall to lockout refugee toddlers not for crimes against humanity because that's just elitist snowflake kind of EU stuff but they got him for screwing over the white nationalists who wanted to build that wall good old Bannon, the president's former campaign adviser. So He's pretty close to trump. He is in handcuffs today with three other Carney's for defrauding donors of hundreds of. Thousands of dollars in the border wall fundraising campaign. See it's the corruption, not the racism that will take them down and well, that is sick in its own way. Bannon is still in an orange jumpsuit with long pants and no cargo pockets for today he's also if he ever land behind bars for real the only person all this might look better after some time the clink a little commissary user in for redness relief never hurt nobody. And once again, I say this as a rotation American. So no offense intended. But there's other good news and this is good news but there's pain in it watching the Democratic National Convention last Night Hillary Obama Comma Harris I was like a lot of people fighting back tears I actually successfully fought them back. It's a it's a habit learned in the last four years. It's not the time in my case for fully felt pain. Not even now there's too many miles left in this, but I did realize when Obama side last night did you catch that? It's so rare for him but he side. That there's a collective exhale in our future maybe not November maybe not even in January. But there will be a moment one day when we can stop winding up our grief like thread on a spool about the lives lost at the border and to. Cova. and to diseases of despair, including suicide and addiction, and in Puerto Rico. And also the jobs lost in the brain's loss to disinformation and trump's lies and the hope loss to white supremacy and a rapist president who subjugates women by mulling them and the relative harmony of our whole sociopaths that's been lost anguish and terror and mutual contempt. With Obama cy I realized that with every suggestion that this boot might one day be off our throat I become slightly more able to actually experience what a siege this has been. It's not quite hope but I'm told that this is something hostages feel the end is in sight and I, know that sounds dramatic but there is a quality where some numbness and fighter pilot vigilance drops for a second and emotions begin to on Spool. So today after all the repression and not crying, it seems clear that one day maybe we can all breathe out in one of those rowdy yoga size and begin to take stock of the losses without flinching.

Travis. Kelsey deal not really I would just say that that vh is basically telling the NFL that the emperor has no clothes. You, know. Back. In in the spring, one of the big national reporters I forget if it was Schefter rappoport, one of those guys tweeted that Patrick Mahomes contract number might have a thrower in front of it instead of three and you and I don't remember you and I talked about it at the time. Well, what does that mean? Exactly does that mean? He's GonNa make forty plus million a year or thirty plus million a year and we Both agreed he was probably talking about the total contract number. So I wrote an article on that basis and I just got crucified for Oh no no no. They're talking about the per year thing you know he's not going to get. He's not going to get a four hundred million dollar contract and I wrote a whole article where I laid out how you could give Patrick Mahomes a four, hundred, million dollar contract but I, did it. With the traditional model giving them a big salary bonus that goes out through the. First five years of the deal but it was a ten year contract I said Okay here's how you could do that. Here's how you could structure it contract like like like that and make it work, and then when it finally happens not only did the for the first number contract start with a four it started with a five. For crying out loud and there's no salary cap there's no signing bonus on it. So visas is totally outside of the box with the rest of the. NFL. Whether this is GonNa work over the long term is another question you can look at the mahomes contract and see it as an albatross hanging around the neck of the chiefs over the link of his deal. But as Craig just pointed out a couple of minutes ago, what this does is allows them to move stuff around in the contract because they haven't. Inserted themselves into a signing bonus arrangement right from the beginning of the deal and that will give them some flexibility down the road. It may be the smartest thing anybody's ever come up with or maybe the stupidest thing of all time it's hard to know right now hindsight of course is twenty twenty Greg any final thought here? Brent Tillerson Chris Shea absolutely. off-season I mean they deserve all the credit in the world poorer structuring this coming up with the way to make all these pieces kind of fit in tetris like into this equation in twenty twenty off season and going forward here and I do think that a lot of people are going to look at this and say, Oh, the chiefs are never going to be able to afford anybody they've got. Holes in on the team coming up. There's not going to be a way around it but I love the flexibility. I think we're going to see maybe a longer term plan as we go into twenty, twenty one and really recognize what Brandt and Chris Shay and Brett VJ and Andy Reid I mean the entire organization has to buy in in order to structure contracts like this and organize the team. Like this so it's going to be buried. Curious to see if this works you're going to see a lot of teams like Jon said kind of follow in that model and try and build upon that the way that the chiefs have done. All right guys.

No new money this year but a guaranteed sizeable roster bonus is due next year. What it means is ties to the chiefs four tight end Travis Kelsey For the next six years when he's done with this contract, he'll be thirty, five, thirty, six years old. So this is one of those contracts that's like a forever deal. As I said I have John and Craig with me. John I'll turn to you i. what did you think when you saw this contract extension? Well, it's It's not that surprising. We've been talking for a while that the chiefs we're GONNA try and figure out some way to get Kelsey extended before he got very much further into his. Contract I believe the nerd squad fellas were speculating that not too long ago thinking that was going to be the most likely thing that would happen in fact even before Chris Jones. contract. So. It's it's not that surprising. It's interesting that it happens on the same day as George. Kill gets his deal in San. Francisco. But indications are the chiefs have been working on this for a few weeks that appears to be just coincidence yet George kittles signed a deal earlier this morning to pay him. A million per year. It is worth wondering if it is a coincidence, maybe the chief side and Kelsey side, we're watching just to make sure that kiddle wasn't making far more than what would be Kelsey and as numbers start to come out, we're not even really sure who's making more per year at the moment it might end up being Travis Kelsey if it's fifteen, million a year depending on how this deal goes Craig, when you heard about. The deal what were you thinking i? I. Was thinking initially that there was going to be some cap saving up front we know that the NFL has allowed teams to have free agent visitors. We know that there's a couple of high ticket guys out there and the easiest way to move some money around was through a Kelsey extension. So I was thinking that maybe we get to see a little bit more money upfront. But we didn't I think this just looks like they're taking care of Travis, Kelsey for the next six years, they want him to retire achieve They've obviously structured it similarly to Chris Jones from the initial reports here, which means that they can probably move some money around later on in the deal, but it does mean that they are committed to him for a little while here Patrick? Mahomes. Is Happy I think that. You are seeing that that Travis Kelsey is going to be a chief for life just for reference, I had to go and look it up. You will be thirty six when he is dumb with this deal that is the time when Jason witten actually had his initial retirement and went and became a broadcaster there. So put that in perspective you know kind of about the length of time that some tight ends can play. Yeah I look at the tight end position and it's not like the running back. Or even the receiver position for some reason that position has always seemed like you could play past the age of thirty and be effective. We saw that in Kansas City with Tony Gonzalez and moves onto Atlanta's still having an impact on the football field. I thought it was interesting I. I had the opportunity if you guys remember to talk to. Travis Kelsey back in June of two thousand. Nineteen coming off of what was ankle cleanup surgery, and one of the questions I had was with Gronk retiring was out of the NFL at this time. Remember before he came back to play for the Tampa Bay buccaneers with gronk retiring. How long do you really WanNa play that was the question I asked Travis Kelsey. Do you have a number in mind of how many years you WANNA, play? Forever. I Lo- I love this game in I. Honestly I can't put a number on it. Unfortunately came this game has an end for everyone and and I know that I'm trying to take care of my body as much as I can with kind of why I got the surgery after the season this this past year so that I can play as long as I can I have a blast every time I come into the facility with this new these new coaches, players, and everybody I, mean, there's more lecture building that I've felt since I've been here in Kansas City. And the expectations are high and you know what it kind of like started playing football. So. It's It's it's something that you know I love I love Kansas City. So I hope I'm here for the the entire career that have the NFL and and hopefully arcade cheeses stay healthy can clear as long as I can. Hopefully that's That's many many many years ago that interview on the Arrowhead Pride podcast network before the chiefs even won the super. Bowl. So you could hear that desire in his voice and then when the chiefs go and win the Super Bowl and you look at the connection that he has with Patrick Mahomes, he has been mahomes as number one target the first two years of him as a starter I think Kelsey has to be looking at this situation in Kansas City and you need a quarterback. One of the greatest tight ends if not the greatest tight end of all time, he has that connection he needs to have production each and every year. Why not stay here at least solidify that hall of fame legacy as a floor, and then you could be looking at if you continue this production, you may be the greatest tight end to ever play the game statistically. Yeah. That's and I think people are going to stay..

"It was just that I use that free time for other things because too scared to use it for the things that really mattered. So again, if you can start these things now even before Fi-, even before you leave your fulltime job then when you get the Fi, you're going to be in a much better position and you're going to be able to just like hit the ground running 'cause you're going to have all these hours to us, but you're going to know how to use them. So think about how you used your time during lockdown. If you had any extra time, I know the parents out there probably had less time than they did before lockdown. But if you did have some free time, did you use it how you thought you would, and if you didn't, then how can you start to live that sorta life now even if you are back to work and you don't have as much free time well, I think that's it. For this year there's obviously a lot of stuff that I've learned about myself about the world that I didn't expect to learn this year, I'd be interested to hear. Any lessons that you've picked up from the last few crazy months. So just head over to the show notes for this episode and put them in the comments and how look forward to reading those again, if you haven't subscribed to the email list or the podcast yet just had ever to met faintest dot com slash advice or subscribe on Itunes, and then you'll get to know when the next episode comes out and hopefully that will be sometime in September in I am seriously. So excited about it and finally I hope everyone out there is doing okay. These are crazy times and a lot of ups and downs and Some scary stuff going on. So I hope everybody's healthy Paul of your families have been able to stay healthy. So take care thanks for listening and I'll speak to you in fires..

"Money can be withdrawn tax free in the future because obviously governments are spending a of money to deal with this cova crisis and we don't know what taxes are going to be in the future but there seems to be a higher probability that taxes would need to increase the pay for all of this this year I'm just going to try to diversify my texts advantage accounts bit more and put some more money into the Roth side of. Things I'm also thinking differently about travel rewards. So if you've read my article articles, you know that I was building up a big stash of miles and points. So that the next time there's a big stock market crash I could use all of those Muslim points to travel while being fund was much cash into the down market is I could well, I didn't expect that the crash would come with a global pandemic, which means that we can't travel anyway. So that's been interesting. Because that sort of foiled my plan to use all this points. So I started getting a little bit worried about having huge balances in those programs because airlines are struggling at the moment hotels struggling credit card companies are likely struggling. So having a million points scattered across different programs was a bit risky for me at this stage. So I've actually started using some of this points to pay for groceries which I am surprised about myself, but the deal was too good to pass up. So I recently found out that, I can use my chase points to. Grocery bills off of my credit card statement and normally that's not really a great redemption. But since I have a chase Sapphire reserve card I was able to get one point five cents per point, which is a decent redemption. It's not amazing but it's decent and the fact that that's same card was giving me five points per dollar at grocery stores for the whole pandemic that. Means I was able to get seven point five percent off of my grocery bill, which was pretty much expense during the three months of lockdown. So it turned out to be a great deal. It's allowed me to get through some of my points and lower my point balances a bit more, and it's also saved us some money so that if the market does decrease again, we'll have. More cash to put into it. If you're interested in learning more about the card that is definitely been my Go-to card for the last three or four years ever since I came out I hopped onto soon as it came out and it was amazing for travel. But like I said, it's been great for groceries and stuff to during the pandemic. So if you're interested to learn more. About that.

"Is then we're off. Sorry not sorry. I really enjoyed that and it made me angry. Yeah and I can't fucking believe the world in which we live at every single time. Yeah so most games. I I didn't realize that you just like it's kind of like movies. How many bad rebuff movies have you seen like even at Walmart like God? I feel like I feel like there are thirty. Thirty van. Helsing is made every year. That movie wasn't even good to start. Wasn't I got. Yeah but these Games terminal champion. I still enjoyed Loyd it anything that I get to learn a lot about. I'm very happy. Yeah I'm very happy to explore like what happened this game because this is my favorite part about doing the show. Is I get to be like what happened to this game weapon to these people. Where did they go on? That's why the producer of this game. I want to be like. What did you like? Oh you did Wolfenstein like that makes this. That makes tone. Then he made a boxing in game. You know what. The boxing game is called Vander. Holyfield's you pander Holy Shit is I just had it. Why did I eat? Did you forget ready to rumble. Oh that sounds ready ready to rumble. Ready to rumble two. There has never been good boxing game. Save punchout really really. I don't think there has one on Gamecube. Those a boxing game was a ton of fun. Somebody shout out some boxing games at me so that I can play one right now l.. I la into your computer and not that switch game where you have goofy arms a box. That WANNA play switch. Goofy armed game that I don't I I do but not for this purpose. I don't think anyone this is a weird fucking game and I'm glad that we really kid chameleon the fuck out of it anyway. If anybody else played played eternal champions led us now. Let's not thought about it how much you liked. It didn't didn't like it. I assume you liked it because you were a child. And you loved video game so I'm certain you liked God. There is a point in my life. Or if you've been like Joan play term champions and have a Sega Genesis. Eternal Champions Cherry slushy had been like oh you et me understand all that ten year old. Jessie needs I love the opening of it. Because I think it's slash. His name is the Caveman. That sounds right. Jumps up jumps on the Sega logo hits the Bunch yes in runaway. Well they have a different one for all of that. Do they all attack the Sega logo and like in destroy it in different in with their own special moves. I remember that that point of it actually felt like nostalgic because I only saw clips of it and then when you actually see the game boot up I was like yeah when you see the game Buddha. But it's a serious logo talk about the fact that there's a caveman with the club named slash first of all. Can we talk about the fact that there's a caveman with the club named anything. And that's you had the. How could you communicate with him? Understand what's going on to die and the future. I'm on my way and say that Caveman just was supposed. He's he's I he's a he's a caveman. You're only supposed to live so long. It is hilarious. Think that they were like this. Man is destined for greatness. It's like this guy has a brain rain half the size of a modern human. I'M GONNA go out of my way and I don't. He probably isn't good or evil because understand that but he probably just is horrible I. I wouldn't leave him in a room filled with women in general I if you left him in a room the room would be destroyed. Just Kill Industry Henry anything. I'm pretty sure he wouldn't be the one you want to survive to ever know. He shouldn't be in this game not at all not at all but that Chicago gangster. Oh boy could he had done great thing you know what if this was just nineteen twenties Chicago gangster like fighter game I would actually would have been interested in that game would have been. Does that would have been a dope game but instead it has to be like we have to pull from everything thing. 'CAUSE street fighters like they're all over the globe and mortal combat. They come from like hell or whatever different dimensions and all this stuff I don't. Does it feel feel like this game. I know like I know that it's not but try to like try to come try to see where I'm coming from. This I refuse refuse other points of view. Does it feel like this. The game was made not by a video game company but by Pizza Hut. No that was called Ninja Turtles. Okay Okay Fair enough. I get what you're saying. I feel like most games in the nineties. We're like this could easily be something that comes with their Pizza Hut. Yeah because this is an arcade game. Was this an arcade game. I think it wasn't it was it was because this arcade game. I don't think it was because I remember reading back. That was like I think it was. Yeah it was purely console. Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's a turtle champions and I want to go get a slurpee now. I want to go get a pizza. Hut Pizza. I'm now realizing that you can just put whatever you want in front of it and then just GonNa make it Cherry. Yeah this is. The best flavor suck at blue res-. It's very strong. Feeling he's via champions. Didn't hate it did love it. I'm so happy explored it. Yeah I would say like so many of the Games we're exploring before and after eight you know it existed What are we a refining any parallels with all these SEGA games refined like yeah man? So we're finding that I fucking whiffed on video. Sega Genesis to US playing the Sega Genesis as well. It feels like ever I. I grew up loving the second genesis and as I look back on it. I think that it was a console that failed to finance identity. I think that it was competing with the Super Nintendo. So which had its identity locked in place right from the get go and had amazing games and I think playstation came out and they did dreamcast and everything else is kinda faded. It just faded away because they never found what their games were and they never found a true sense of what they wanted that company to be exactly like they did sonic sonics awesome but then they just didn't have anything else like I don't really know sonic took off sonic to was amazing and sonic and they did a bunch of bullshit songs spinoffs but what else was like. They had their Their claim to fame. RPG was fantasy star where we're final fantasy was on Super Nintendo They're fighting games. Were mortal Kombat and streetfighter which were also available. I think on Super Nintendo or you could play them in arcade form. Yeah like there. There was nothing exclusive to Sega Genesis that felt like you needed to play it. Yeah with Super Nintendo. Like you needed to play a fancy six. You need to play Super Mario World. You needed to play the Celtics Games. Just all violent. Yeah they were savings. Violent tried to be the Anti Nintendo. But you can't make a a persona for yourself any kind of personality yourself based on what you're not you have to make it based on what you are. Yeah and all the Sega characters are now on unintentional basically. Yeah fucking outlived him hard. Yeah they all right. That's it that's it has been before and after eternal champions Jesse a key Keith Jesse. Se Jesse key journal Champions. This new players joined silence. Yeah question twelve what year.

One not too right. I think to take a long time ago. Okay okay all I know. Is We own this game I in this game. It's so fucking funny. 'cause how I feel about this game is the B- cereals that the ones that don't have boxes X.'s. Yeah I know the bags of it's the frosting flakes yeah and And the the nutmeg toast crunch and the Chara. Because you're you're not explain the story of fruit your next plane. The story you're like none of this makes sense like this is the dumbest Group of characters to get. I get the story like the concept behind. It is cool because there's a concept because the story is just like what if we took all of these people in history and they died in their history but we can keep them alive because he would go on and do something important because trying to explain that they're like nobody's good or evil which I'm like makes no fucking sense you have to have some morality -ality to wait I. We'll go into okay. We will go into it but sure am I looked up the story just if you look at the characters. There's a guy literally named blade. Did Ya any looks just like Wesley. Snipes Blade he does except that he's wearing Greenspan Green Star Trek visor. So fucking funny. Do you want to just jump into the game and then we can talk about in detail. Sh Yeah I mean. I'm so fucking curious. What the plot of this game was? In retrospect just jump into how would you know your favorite talk. Okay here we go into it before we can jump in. So I'M GONNA go ahead and guess not very very well and the second game and we're going to do today might be a a little bit hard but it fits perfectly into what this I would. I've never done world these games. It's hilarious that you're going to be fair warning warning. You're not gonNa be good that that means it's really really really not going. I mean that's that should come with life. Yeah you have to sign something. It's like things aren't going to be a warning. You're not going to be good at anyways.

Let's let's treat you being wrong as being question to. How many composers did this game have now? This was surprising three five. Oh how is more more than one more than one composers like. My answer is preposterous. Five five people to make the music like there's nothing billable music. There's nothing memorable. They only needed one person. Have there's five I figured to one board computer made all the music the scheme question three. Where was Tom Brady born California? Okay Southern California Santa Barbara so close San Mateo San Mateo California does he forty two. He's he's forty is he. Just forces forty got five years left him got five. That has long. As as long as he doesn't open his dumb fucking mouth as long as you just fucking Jesus Christ stops talking about most players retire like thirty thirty. Yeah like Darrell. Rivas like thirty to know you are. Oh Brady hasn't been hitting up hit enough. Oh check the injury reports. My man that that dude has suffered no he. Hasn't yeah that's fair question.

"You don't need to kill a game shows in Chicago or through nine of the simpsons gangster. It's a Chicago gangs the FIDORA and the and the trenchcoat make it very much and the shoes and the slacks everything. It looks very much Chicago. It's like Tommy guns. I Picture Chicago gangsters. I love that you pick Chicago because that to me. Just nineteen thirty's gangster. Stuff it probably is cog to me is like something about Chicago's who's the biggest Aga's gangster of all time all time of like American gangster Al Capone from Chicago. Yeah there you go well. I picture that because I think subconsciously. You're like Chicago Scott Adalah Shit on him and trump Chicago. Yeah the mayor's for the past fifty sixty years have all kept Jackson Connor so it was also the he. It's Marinara sauce on his cheek. So deep dish pizza recently out Pacino. Everybody is now or is he. Cuban win doesn't matter put them in move me. It doesn't matter make them play both. Is that racist one earlier at seven. I know I know I have no idea what the plus the only fighting game because for years again. Play these Games on and off. I I jump back and forth. I played a lot of video games. We forget about this as adults but there is a point in your life in game. That's the game you know we're you would be bored. We don't have points anymore. We're bored as adults. We have too much to do as a kid. There are moments Rosa. I'm bored beaten this game of beating this game. I haven't played this one a while so I would always was come back to these games so I would play like a general chaos which is a which is somewhere between a fighting game a strategy game off an awesome game that game probably just call it love it. Yes it'll just get a bazooka and you made a guy go from human skeleton and then fall down house one god how brutal and great you know what it was. What's that fucking is all the mobile games now like all the castle fucking look like they look exactly the same? Yeah they really do but this is a game that I was just plug in and be like I. I was into games that were that. Were kind of a `Nigma that I couldn't understand because I was like there must must be something to understand the most. There must be some payoff for this. Just a lot of fucked up crazy character thing about Wolfenstein. Three D is I thought everyone had Wolfenstein assigned three to eight because like the three families I knew all three of US had Wolfenstein Three D. That's I love. How small your sample sizes allowed to be when your head home he was? It's like Oh so three of us so we all do it. Yeah I felt when I lived in Chicago in the nineties like Michael Jordan Chicago. Every single movie took place in Chicago. Ah everything in the nineties. Was Everything Chicago everything and then it stopped because you know reasons you know this is dangerous there now. It's the the new Detroit. You're the one thing I will allow myself to do. is to look up some of these characters and see if there are any big ones that I forgot I mean some of these characters have guns is the other so these characters. Just get to like have fucking guns and be crazy. Look which she's just pictures pressure limit all right all right. It's your limit is pretty good though I mean I'm sure you're gonNA tear this one apart and I look forward to it mostly at this point point. I'm like a it would be so much work to Google this game if I just did the first half of before and after with Keith. He'll do it for me and tell me everything. I need to know everything. He'll get to hate these characters just before. I do I I'm excited to see it. I'm wondering if I played this. When was it was on? Sega is Sega and Sega Masters Master master system. I definitely pride player. It's such a weird game because it feels so much like the creators were like. This can be dark but also like Khitish but mostly it feels dark and strange Sega like the beginning of violence right. It was just like Fuck Janko for Nintendo. Wasn't violence is not at all. They Jealous Lower Sega. Genesis was pretty eh up. This is also one of the first Games Like I fighting games. That was console arcade. You know what I mean like street fighter arcade and mortal no comment was okay but this game was consul. Because you don't you think it would have been harder to make. Even if this was an arcade game people would have been like. This isn't okay. Well that that would have been overshadowed mortal combat. You think ooh because it was an arcade game so it was accessible for mortal combat. I think was more combat. Had Way more blood an and you can do the blood code headway more blood. This one was hidden blood you had to earn. It almost fell. Earn your yeah exactly. This almost felt like a game. Those marketed towards kids. Who didn't want their parents to know how violent their game was it was on the DL? This game was fucked up on it service. It was just a fighting. You've been on the deal. This game was really messed up. So they're like health books for fifth graders. I'm learning something of a giant Jack and this this is all I need this page Regina. That's all I needed right there. The text of the Word Vagina. I'm a thirteen year old boy. ooh Fuck in Bane of existence. I can picture every guy listened this like just nine there has like I remember that you. Yeah I remember that. Remember that guy's got it. Yeah I text books. They were filled with gold for desperate little kids so it wasn't Goldeneye. It was this game the house and the shooter's it was the game where it's like. We don't secretly no. I was also a I should tell you. There are few moves in here like a few characters and moves that are just super super fucking weird like what. There is this futuristic. I I want to say his name was blade or blades or something and the green spandex suit guy and he had this thing on his wrist and it was so shitty it would shoot out like this little string like if you made a fist. It would show up this little string with this little capsule at the end and if it hits you like shock you knock you down but it was so slow and small and dumb looking. Yeah it was like the the lease intimidating and he also had a mover he would jump up in the air and do like a kick down at an angle where the whole lower have this body would basically turn into a lightning bolts. Okay and that was just go back to being normal. What is lower? I don't know so. He's like a superhero. Maybe I think I think his level is just the one with that huge oscillating being fan. You can throw somebody into I love this game but I fucking hate it. That's because so far none of it makes any sense. I what would you do if you if we came back and it still didn't make any sense very pissed off to search for it like I think I get more pissed off. Ofek Games for being bad. Because he and I work in Hollywood worker asses off for the stuff that we do and none of it comes to fruition and you just see see people like throw bullshit and a wall made some what Jesse and I have realized what most of adult life is is hilarious because you go to a business you go here you go there. It's all made up. There's just one guy with a shit ton of money and we ask that one guy for some money to invest in a Guy Damn thing that's an adult is it's weird and so when something like this gets made. I'm like who fucking money to make this. Who did like why how? Oh which gatekeeper. Did you meet that nobody else did. It's not movies now. You're getting noted to death and that's the reason is bad now like somebody invested in Game and you've got to tell all the plebes how to make a game or whatever and you're the charter in charge of it. So that's why I'm like what the fuck happened. I don't think you're going to find an answer to that. I don't even know if that's what it was like why I bring up like Nina Kuni. Sometimes I'm like it's beautiful. It's this yet explain. Yeah there's some bad games out there man. There aren't but it's like there are bad games. But then their games and I'm like I don't have this get pass in the light of Day who invested in this. How did this get invested? Why why? But then it's GonNa be great awesome. I best can lead to a bunch of different games TMZ. I guarantee you ever made this probably working on streetfighter right now or moral clerk numeral. I would not be surprised to find that they worked. Oh you know what I wouldn't be surprised to find. They worked on the Fight Club game. Oh did you play that. I play back games. Garbage is on Gamecube. Like you could fight literally like the mob boss. Something like the dude. The sideburn was like a bunch of it and like you could be Jack Jazz in quotes. Yeah stuff like that the game. This is bad games. Bad game this game this game. We don't know yet. You liked it so obviously age gotTa have something about it. Yeah got something but but again I liked kid chameleon so I don't want to put myself out there. I learned very early in recording. This podcast with you that I should make myself vulnerable because it will not be respected in general. Don't make yourself vulnerable terrible. Take advantage of united on accurate and it wasn't that kid community was a bad game so it was a waste of your fucking is just too many levels to learn in just like no but whatever the case let's check out some internal Sheffield guys. We'll be back right now. No like in a few seconds makes But we're back the half. I've looked up eternal champions. I'm so curious.

"You just want a wealthy to the kelly family and if you're wrestling with the leadership question if you have a topic you would love for to explore or you know someone who would make a great gaspar are show send us an email to are oh i pod that's r o y p o d at a u p y dot e d u well in this episode we are tackling the question is it's eight four year degree obsolete in this modern age as we see now technology is booming at such a high speed an the buzz word of the time in business is talent and filling talent shortages judges so on this episode phil sat down with the ceo and founder of kenzi academy shock we to have a conversation about this disruption that's happening before we talked chalk let's talk about the kenzi academy around the united states the high tech sector is booming these companies need coders and folks understand how to make machines work and talk to each other and process artificial intelligence the challenges that colleges and universities are not putting a talent out there fast enough the sector is very hungry in response to this need we've seen pop up around the country very innovative coding academies these academies offer half year full year to year programs that go straight to the heart of developing the cody needs the technology sector requires kenzi academy is one of those and kenzi academy solves a unimportant problem that faces high tech companies here in indianapolis indianapolis is the second fastest growing high tech sector in the nation anes the kennedy academy enemy produces talent within a very short window that's immediately deploy to these companies to help these innovative organizations grow and shock leads that charge an is changing the conversation in a small way on how you deliver higher education it's a very subtle disruption they introduced for example he goes straight into the technical material there's no general education requirements there's no classrooms it's all a collaborative learning in flipping the classroom any any any learning that you were doing a traditional classroom is done online also here's the one that's that's it's the most interesting at the kennedy academy you don't pay tuition until after you've gotten her job after the fact not before the fact and these were refreshing ways to look at higher education but they make us colleges universities universities sort of reflect back on what we're doing in ways that we can improve the experience where students and delivery of value for our region so shock welcome to they are a podcast it's great to have you on today were very excited to talk about the kenzi academy in this sort of revolution in tech training that you're helping to leed 'em an you know really comes down to speeding up the learning so that talent could get out there and fill those needs 'cause until those jobs were filled these companies that are begging to grow and their customers are wanting more of what they produce they can't do it and so figuring out how to do that in a better way and a faster way has so much economic value but of course you know the candy academies not only coating academy out there the candy academies part of this larger movement this larger innovation that were seeing in the tech education sector what's the contrast here you know you've got you've got big corporate training centers like i'd be in training center you've got large a well respected computer science departments and technology schools around the country and established universities why is it that traditional higher education and also big corporate training centers are not producing enough talent fast enough so i think universities and colleges journey has been doing a pretty good job quitting telling the power icon of me for the last few decades but what's happening if you look back the last ten twenty years it's that the the change will be economy really accelerated we move very very rapidly from industry age to the data and information age and if you look at universities you know many of them you know claim hundreds of years of of of history and legacy which is great but a lot of did the the the current system is pretty much set out for the industrial revolution a it set up the train pretty much assembly line like kind of workers how good people at a you know a memorizing information and producing bridge and taking tests and repeating instructions and all that but in the new digital data economy it's no longer about those that ability it's about how do you involve a at the pace of technology evolution how do you think critically how do you solve problems seeing issues that you've never seen before and request a very different mindset and just unfortunately a a a you know we see that law university programs are having trouble keeping up would that change on how fox business change and therefore what you're trying starting to see is a lot of employers try to come up with that one solution a they just gave up one waiting on universities to give them the talent they need so a lot of important starting to innovate on their own to kind of look for in train talent or were all kind of create new a providers a you know schools like kenzi that came out we came from employers side because we knew how hard how desperate companies are looking for talent and looking for the right skills in the talent talent pool a and that's why a what's happening right now as the politicization of new training mottos looking to addressed this major gap in the market and i like we mentioned earlier d a i'd be an example is a you know in baton rouge a they set up a center where they were initially gonna hire a hundred thousand people would see what the partner but quickly i b m start realizing that they the the graduates do not have a major skews get from idea needs an i i it's been horrified began to get what they want so a company like i'd be ended up starting a you know bypassing love universities including their own training program even reaching as far down in high school students to provide apprenticeship another kind of training to ensure that they get steady supply of talented any you know chuck as as the kenzi academy addressing this issue of reversing talent shortages in the tech sector not only central indiana but in other areas where the cans academy has a presence how is what you do how is you're educational model different than what we find in the classic university approach so what happened a couple of years ago a kind of addressed the market we saw proliferation of we call them coding bootcamp a they also do other things in marketing and design and everything but in general just a short three mun programs a that were that the goal is it's kind of addressed the skills gap and a lot of those companies start taking off but then we start to see pretty much a consolidation and also kind of a slowing down growth because of some of the the fluffy design but what the boot camps where they showed that there was a huge demand outside of the university in college system 'em so the kenzi model pretty much we take kind of the best out of boot camps and also for universities to create a new model a that would provide enough a time for people to train the muster the material and be ready by not having to wait for use of their life going back to a computer science program so kenzi programs i won the two years in length so a lot longer than eight three month coding bootcamp by less than half the time of the fall you're a university a we are project based learning enslave classroom so there's no you know as you see hippo campus here d'arno lecture halls we set up the template stomach extremely uncomfortable for someone to lecture for a long period of time so so a student's comes kenzi every day and they learn not by listening to lecture by by doing real work everyday and then discovering how to do the work and discovering how to solve problems along the way and also all instructors are known faculty a so will we hire only industry petitioners so there's a all instructors are essentially you know hiring managers so they know exactly the skills and the kind of attitude they need in the talent a so we have the ability to cross the curriculum as well as how we teach to a pretty much in an apprenticeship fashion you know trading up ainu piling on talen a that a we are selves one higher just said something interesting used the term arm quote waste of four years interesting question do you believe college campuses may be obsolete in the modern age so first of all a that full years is valuable you know i it might sound went to a four year university program so i'll be a hypocrite but critics say that you know it is a totally useless 'em the way to kind of give you a little more context i say in the term of nontraditional students which is the main kenzi student population a so you're you're tradition students people coming out of college a a n a typically if you wanna go to college i say go to college but we have now is huge a population of non traditional students and this up people who are either a older than a typical traditional student a couple of different backgrounds teeter peter has some college dropped out or had graduated from college was under employed or unemployed people who just decided to skip call it entirely a and what we're seeing the trend right now over the next few years then nontraditional student number will overtake the tradition students as the the majority of the population so we the current university system is and as you look at the non traditional student a they many of them don't have the luxury of you know spending for years on some of the kids that were commitments movements all kinds of things so what they need is what is d most optimal possibly a not necessarily shorter's enough time for them to get all the skills they need to be able land a job and then be successful and then another trend we're seeing right now is just going back to my earlier a statement as how fucked technologies evolving gone other day that you can get a four year degree look for a couple of years maybe do a masters and then then you could work until you retire that that lifestyle that that way of life is is is totally a you know a a us updated by now you know we have a new one every year end and it comes with this is how fast technology jay z volving moving and what really as a as you know as as a professional has the talent when you really think about his lifelong learning and what that means is that you know the the the future higher at will no longer look like will not let me look what it is today they will look more like you you you have you can either go full year into a two year whatever treating it as get the skill get the job and then along the way either do it parttime medication or go back to school few years from now on and an obscure yourself and continue to obscure so so then you could adapt to the changing workplace and the changing technology landscape and so what you know what the wool we're seeing moving towards is yes you you you could still have that four year but the full year will not be sequential it could be one of two years of training work and then a hopefully earn enough college a credit that a you can we use those college credit to be able to get a degree in another one at two years timeframe chuck you talked about sort of the mechanics of how all the candy academy teaches engages students but when you get down to the bottom line more fundamentally.
