"You're that dialed into specific routes that you need to throw a little bit better, because would any of us have said that? I mean, remember when he didn't throw the deep ball? Well, we all knew that right his rookie year like, how come you can't hit the deep ball? He's got to work on that we all that was kind of in front of your face. You knew he had to throw the deep ball better maybe was after a second year, Whatever. Would any of us have said, You know, he'd better throw that in cut route a little bit better. You didn't. I'm not thinking that way. So he might be yelled at if you did. You didn't see the big article I posted about I did a whole article about in cuts. Okay. Alright, fine. Right. So I mean for him to come out and say that, I think means he he is really kind of dialed into The little things that he needs to improve on to be the best quarterback he can be. And then I think the third part which is what I mean the big the big picture here. Josh Allen is an alpha male. That's what he is. He is a leader. He is a guy that has been groomed to be Quarterback, his entire life. A leader, um, on an athletic field, just his personality, and I think that plays into He's never going to He's never going to sit back and say I've arrived. I just can't imagine this young man with this personality being like that. He never strikes me as anyone. I don't care if you won a Super Bowl if he wins two Super Bowls. Josh Allen just doesn't strike me as a person who says Hey, that's good. I'm good. I've had a great career doesn't matter. What happens from now on, Um Sal, with us, 80305 fifteen's that will be at mandatory minicamp. Covering it for us today. John and West Seneca, You're on wdr with Sal. Go right ahead. You guys are good. Thank you. So a big question that I think that we need to talk about going into the season is that Like is the addition of Stella to away really going to bring back our defense to kind of 2019 form because I remember you know, obviously, when we came back to last year in their defense, studying Allowing a lot of points. Everyone started asking the question what was wrong? Lot of people, you know, said it was Starla to away because you know, he's good, big defensive tackle that kind of takes up the A gap. And you know, I can totally understand when people say the defensive line helps out the linebackers and the linebackers help out and safety. I can understand why One person's absence can maybe lead to a chain of events. That would make a defense go from top three to maybe Average to below average, and I don't think we talked about it enough because we were just so collaborate with the offense scoring 500 points, So I think my big question is Do you think Starla to Lloyd's edition is going to make you know this defense go back from average to Top three Do not think that one particular individual in this case star Lotulelei This is a really fascinating question, because of course he's going to help, and I think that this is a big focus of exactly what you said. You're not wrong at all. Like when people said last year. What's wrong? One of the first things anybody would point to. Well, you know, they're really missing star in the middle. I want to caution people that are thinking that Oh, this is a quick fix It started. There were other things that went wrong with this defense last year, they couldn't get to the quarterback as well as they wanted. I mean, getting them down. You know, Leslie Frazier said. You know they they pressured the quarterback quite a bit. And I agree with that. I think they got to the quarterback. Pressure wise a little bit more, you know than people realize, but they didn't get the quarterback down. But the other part of this was like they gave up some more deep passes last year than we're used to. Um, you know, I don't think they tackled as well as they wanted to, especially early in the year that that probably has nothing to do with star literally. He's on the field 50% of the time. He's mostly on rundown, so You know, I I would caution anybody against thinking a that suddenly getting Starla tool is just going. Oh, we're so fine. Now we're gonna vault back up into the top. Whatever defense But also, you know, just thinking that that was that or pinning it on him and being gone right. That's the other part of it. Don't just pin it on. Oh, star and he opted out. It's because of him. That they needed to play better on defense last year as a group, and especially over the first six weeks or so they were not the same unit we had seen. Part of that goes those guys. As we've pointed out many times its score effect the Bills offense is so good Teams are more aggressive against them. And when teams are more aggressive against them, sure you might have more opportunities to make plays. But you're going to give up more plays, and I think that is something you have to be aware of. Probably should before I let you go do the whole reminder thing. Mandatory Mini camp is open to the media. Uh And I think when we you know, we talk about the bills sell. Obviously Wouldn't you know questions and not positions and battles and Cornerback too, will always come up..

"Keelin Jay Kershner. Excuse me like the allergies. I found myself By the way, ladies taking your advice did Zyrtec that was called Zantac. But Santa will be a combination heartburn. How is that? Well, Zantac got pulled from the shelf, so I don't even know if it's available anymore. What would be a combination of a What is Zyrtec or Xanax? What would happen if you took them both together? I have to be very sleepy, right? You really have to think a nap. Hey, when you got allergies and anxiety and bring him on there all set, huh? Okay, So this is a study that has been done. I find it interesting how often we discussed polls or studies of things because they make for interesting conversation. This one suggests that most of the police departments in our country are not sharing information about their use of force. This on the heels of the, uh, the award the awarding of the Pulitzer Prize to done, Ella Frazier. Did you see this teenager who filmed the police and the activity on George Floyd? She has been awarded the Pulitzer Prize. It's an honorary Pulitzer Prize, but it's called the special citation from the Pulitzer board. Or filming the final moments of his life. Can you imagine if we didn't have that video? What would be going on? Derek Chauvin would probably have gone free and none of the honey did She happen to be there? What do we know about this young? Lady. I don't remember. I remember the video, but I remember too much about I think, as people started to gather, I think she was just there right place right time or wrong place. Wrong time, however you want to say it, but she just started filming it because that's what kids do. They just automatically start filming everything. So the last time a special citation was issued, it was to Ida Wells, who is a journalist who exposed the lynchings. And mob violence against black people. This is so it's been a while since it happened. I think it's a coincidence that it is they both have gone to black women. But that's kind of you know the fact that this sort of thing is noted, there's a reckoning here that needs to come and it becomes a It's a source of Consternation because most people want to see the police do well most people want when they see the police they want to have, you know, Expect help. My That's how that I grew up on that. Grew up on the police helping when there was a problem. The police would be there to help you. Unfortunately, what has turned into in too many cases is there is a the the Opposite. In fact, you want to stay away from the police because they're not there to help you. They're there to harass you or to give you a perfect example when somebody's tail light is out or let's say There's I'm going to give you an example. That happened to me. I had a problem a number of years ago with a truck up in a real rural area when I was coming back with some animals and was late at night. Coming back to the farm, and I had. I think it was a flat tire. And it was. It was something that at 11 o'clock at night I didn't want to deal with. So a policeman camel as some small little town called oak, Um The policeman came along and he saw they had a problem. And he said, Okay, how can I help you out? And so he helped me change the tire. And he followed me. He can only go to the town line. But he followed me to make sure that I didn't have any more problems. That's a vivid imagine that's a vivid imagery. That I have, and it's so It's so makes me want to Think that police are like that everywhere. I would love to have everybody have that experience by and large They are. But nobody tells us stories. Everybody tells the other stories. I don't I don't have that experience anymore. I have When I have a problem the other day, I had a problem with the truck that I picked up in Vermont. Uh, I mean a trailer and I had stopped along the side of the road and the, uh, it was something I had to kind of fix myself or do policemen stopped and said, What's the problem? He wanted to check out all the lights and things that I said, I'm having a problem with the brakes on this trailer, and he said, Well, I hope you get it fixed and he got in his car and drove away. So that's not helpful. I find that not helpful at all. I mean, it was a dangerous highway, the least he could have done. It sat in his car with his lights on until I managed to get it fixed. But I was going to say if you didn't have road flares or any like safety equipment with you, unfortunately with just provide, fortunately, defunding. The defunding of the police. So doesn't allow him to have the time to do that anymore. I'm sure of it because you have think that's a convenient excuse. Yeah, I don't think it's a convenient you just said it had was what? A month ago two months ago? No one has actually been defunded. Yet last weekend, 100%. They have Victoria in L. A. The LAPD has been defunded by $150 million Yellow Sheriff's Department. Not the same. I've got a lot of experience. My teeth are long. And I've got a lot of experience with law enforcement. Some of it positive, some of it negative, but I do not find the attitude these days. Well, you've got a little attitude on your own. No question about it. And one of the reasons I have an attitude is because they don't like their attitude. Don't expect that I should be put through the wringer. The expectation is and maybe I get it because you get arrested for something that you shouldn't have been arrested for. I did it because he taught he can't stand authority. So no, That's not why I gotta rest. Lem has nothing to do with why I got him. No, it is not at all. You got into a huge fight. They probably would have been real nice about your world. They wouldn't have your arrest. What was the warrant for you already? It was for me not serving on a jury, uh, so wrong because the next day when I went to court, I showed the judge The the jury. I was the chimp the where they call it. The foreman, the foreman of the jury. Oh, So you had your letter to prove that you had the letter to prove it. And the information that was on an old license that I hadn't used for years was what they found. It's just that kind of stuff. That's not police. That's not good Police work. What is that? It's harassment. And there's player if you let me just play devil's advocate here, if your police officer and you see a warrant for someone's arrest and you pull them over, you said there's a warrant out for your arrest and they start bad mouthing you. What in the world are you supposed to do? Didn't do anything They put. They put me in handcuffs. Put in the back of the cruiser. My truck was parked along the side of the road. They were going to have a toad. I said No, I'll have my people. Come get it..

Steven Soderbergh's 'No Sudden Move' to Premiere at Tribeca Film Festival
"There's a new steven soderbergh movie coming out. Oh really just assumed. There's one every month now. Accurate that is fair but i reference of course there in the question out of sight still my favorite steven soderbergh movie. And there's a reason for it. Soderbergh himself said when asked about making this movie. No sudden move which is a heist movie. The last time. I shot a movie in detroit with a great script and a great cast. Things worked out. Pretty well yeah. He made a masterpiece. This one though. Unlike out of sight is a period piece it said back in nineteen fifty five and is about a group of small time criminals who are hired to steal the documents. Seems like it's simple josh. I don't know if you've heard this before it's a heist that seems like it'll be simple And then something goes off if you want to make a move proposition for you. It's never your fault. is it offensive. Do you think i was skiing. I'm sure there's going to be some interesting socio political elements to the movie being set in detroit in the mid fifty s. A time where you know. Some of the big auto plants are starting to close. You've got this growing class and racial divide. So it's gonna be a grittier piece. It is going to be more akin to something like out of sight. Or even maybe kind of the limy versus the breezy flash of something like ocean's eleven but the cast just like with ocean's eleven is also a big big reason to see this movie and i guess clooney jack fully himself danny ocean himself was originally set to star and had to back out due to the pandemic but listen to this cast even without clooney.

Rhythms of Sacred Protest - Koach Baruch Frazier
"Wanna talk about somebody coming to to do what you're doing which is to be in rabbinical school after a career in another field. I'm just curious about that because up until relatively recently being a rabbi was like something that people did more or less out of college and as somebody who's now on the old side. I kind of feel like i actually have learned a lot in the last thirty years and if i were to become a rabbi which i've got rid would never be but if i if i did today audi much better at it than i would have been thirty years ago and so i'm wondering just could you talk a little bit about how you made that decision to become a rabbi. After having done something else for a long time. And how has that influenced the way that you experience being a rabbinical student. One of the things that was on my mind. When i decided that i wanted to go to rabbinical school was as a leader Leader in community already in saint louis missouri. Which is where most recently from people were already assigning the title. Rabbi to me. It felt very strange. A i that was one thing that propelled into rabbinical school. The other thing is that. I spent a lot of time as an audiologist and i was starting to notice that some of the people who were coming to me weren't necessarily coming to me for their physical. Let's say a problems or their physical situations that they were actually coming to me. And i was more so as chaplain than i. Was there. audiologist in as that started to shift. I say you know what. I think i should go to school. So that I've gone to school for a audiology. And i felt of my career was great and i also knew that there was foundational learning. That made that career great along with the experience in so i decided that i needed to go to rabbinical school to get some foundational learning so that those moments in time when i'm spending with people as their rabbi that the foundation is there

Yeah and i didn't go back into look in the box score. But when i saw your question bill i assume he threw at least three innings. If a reliever comes in with a lead and throws at least rantings their credit with a save now your point is well taken he certainly and and knowing dobnak he would be the first one to tell you that he was not effective but according to the rule.

"frazier" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"And producer for him l. dot com and sarah. A you and i are texting back and forth yesterday. Want to tweeting out With your help some information about francisco lindores contract which is Which i find really interesting before. I dive into that morning. Good morning thanks for thanks. Have read so exciting. What are we. Today is day six of the season. It feels like we're already one hundred so we're drawing conclusions and i'm going to be asking you whether or not you wanna draw inclusion Later in our segment here but i Talking about francisco lindores contract. It was interesting but just think talking with a couple of people yesterday that for between his salary for this year which is twenty two point three million and his signing bonus of twenty one million which is paid out this month this is not a signing bonus which is paid out during the you know the length of the contract. He gets all twenty one million dollars before the month of april. He's got forty three point. Three million dollars in compensation for this year which united determine that's the highest in baseball history for any player for one year. I mean it's incredible first of all what contract structure not just blew me away because i feel like we. We think about sports not even just baseball contracts. The signing bonus always seems to be spread out over a couple of years. I was so interested to hear that. But you know we spend all offseason talking about. Trevor bauer is. He can get the forty million average annual value and we had our eyes on the four zero for that reason but based on how everything is going out and you mentioned deferrals talking yesterday is going to be friends at school endure now i will say that the payout of signing bonuses is not as well tracked as overall salaries are but i did my best looking through the last two years as we know with contracts how they've gone up especially balloon in the last maybe five to ten years. There's really nobody else who i found who could have really come close to this kind of number in a single year so truly interesting and i wonder how it will be listed moving forward. But that's really just for me and research less well and i think it's a nice job is agent. David meter that he got him. The signing bonus in the year leading up to this looming labor issue like i. if i'm agent. i'd wanna get my players some money before we hit this labor thing because no one really has an idea. What's coming out next year. Absolutely i mean we just don't know what the c. d. being up in everything alson. It's just really interesting because it was already a great deal for the player and for the team you know but really great deal for the player with three forty one million starting in twenty two my two and everything else but it's interesting because you know with these extensions that kick in the next year you're not usually looking at that year that he is signing it necessarily kind of like mckee bet steele. Didn't kick in until this year. I believe but instead he's getting a huge payout to start it and as you said the years in the timing certainly can't be an accident all right. Let's play the numbers game number. three number. Three is one hundred. So jacob degrom through eleven hundred mile an hour pitches last night. He has now thrown forty four hundred mile. An hour pitches in the last two seasons. Which is thirty one more than the next starting pitcher on the list and the next starting pitcher on the list is six or sanchez. Who we don't exactly know when he's even going to be pitching this year so just further. Prove the point that he's got quite a hefty. We'd there and it was. I mean i think at this point we can call that a classic degrom game all around. He became the first pitcher in mets history to get the team's first season which i thought was a really funny note. He ended up two hits on the night and rbi but of course saw what happened with the bullpen. We saw as we've seen many times. Jacob degrom leaving with a lead the team going on to lose the game says the eighth time since twenty eighteen that he had a six or more innings. Scoreless start where. He ended up getting a no decision. And that's to more than any other pitcher in that span. And the mets have actually lost five games where he had we. Six ending. Scoreless starts since two thousand eighteen. Which is tied for the most in the majors and the most common reaction to that. When i put that out on twitter last night was like really only five. Because i think we know what this feels like and it certainly felt like that again last night number. Two number two is five so last night was the fifth time. Aaron judge and giancarlo stanton homered in the same game in the right in the regular season as teammates three of those were in twenty eighteen april fourth june sixth and july four and then once in a in a double header last year but they both homered in the same game. The first game of the doubleheader. They've also done it in three postseason games so there's a couple of ways to look at this but certainly it's encouraging is offense in this just gets to the point of when they made that trade in december twenty seventeen to get giancarlo stanton. Everyone was thinking. Oh my goodness. How many times are you see judge and stanton go yard in. The same game really hasn't happened that much because of health and these guys haven't been on the field so that's gotta be encouraging today keys and hopefully we see a ton of the season number one number one is eight so the as are the third team since at least nineteen o one to allow eight or more runs in each of their first five games of the season. And i mean you know eat feels a little arbitrary may be but that's a lot of runs to be giving up so the only other teams to do that. In each of their first five games of the season were the nineteen ninety. Five white sox in nineteen seventy four padres and. It's been a little surprising to me. I had the astros winning this division. But i expect today's be better than they've looked on. I think they could look a bit better. But the pitching has been a huge concern. You lead perfectly into the question. That i was going to ask you which is do. You think oakland's and trouble because i do thought you know during the offseason when they lose lame hendrickson they lose market simeon. You know an important leader in their clubhouse and their everyday shortstop and and look i people like elvis andrus but it's not like a player who's on the rise and so i i really feel like wild. I'm also as i told you during spring training. I'm buying the angels type definitely and we've seen we've seen the angels look good. I mean both they and the astros are now foreign one. But i agree with you. I mean i expected the issues with the as to be coming more from not having semi and not having hendrix. But i think the starting pitching issues in just like across the board pitching issues have been really magnified. I mean they have the worst run differential majors right now. By many runs minus thirty three as their run differential the only other teams with a negative double digit run differential are minus eleven. So that's significantly worse than everybody else and obviously these high scoring games. The astros scored a ton of runs off with them and they gave up. Bunch runs last night to the dodgers too. But i yeah. I mean it feels like the as have been this team the last two years that you don't necessarily always expect then. Hey they're always kind of there by the end of the season or the wildcard or whatever else. But i'm not sure that that can continue this year based on. Not just how they have left. But if you really take a look at that roster what house they've looked has meant and i think you would agree with me. Also that historically it feels like that when we get about may thirtieth. That's when oakland puts everything together and they take off like. I don't know the exact numbers but i. I'd almost be willing to bet.

Not statements what does that look like to you what it looks like and i think this is very important is one what we want.

Michael rothstein covers boxing for espn and is behind the scenes. Look at clarisa. Shield is journey to. This moment is out now on. Espn dot com. Well michael we are honored to have you back on the show as well because you have this piece. You just reported on clarisa shields. Who is the biggest star in women's boxing. Maybe ever and her event coming up tomorrow night. it's being called superwomen. Some are also calling it. Her story play on history. But i need you to explain to me. What exactly it is that makes all of this so historic well. It's a couple of things. Pablo i is. This clarisa shields is the headliner on a pay per view card and there hasn't been a women's fight. Headlining a paper view card. In twenty years. We're talking last time it happened. Was layla alley and jackie. Frazier light and I don't think anyone listening to this. Podcast probably would remember watching that fight because it's been that long but they went one step further and not only. Is it her headlining. This is a car completely full of women's fights there's four fights on the card and this is going to be friday in her hometown of flint michigan in front of a little under. Maybe two hundred fans because that's what michigan is allowing at this point in this audience is going to have to come through paper view and this is again for classes. Shields and for promoter mostly because this hasn't been done before so there's no metrics on this there is no read on buys would be good or bad all of this is her taking a big bet on herself and who should be fighting. She's fighting marie eve to care who is also undefeated and they feel like. It's going to be one of the best fight in women's boxing this year and probably the best fight. They could have made for clarisa shields. And that's one of the challenges. Foreclosure shields right is. She is so good that it's tough to find opponents that are worthy of are very similar in some ways to. What can alvarez going through on the men's side if you watch that fight on saturday night because they are most just dominant so there are a lot of ingredients their them going to bite into but first off. When was the last time we even saw clarisa shields in the ring so the last time we saw her was january twenty twenty and that was against ivana hobbies in and she won a unanimous decision. Not twin make story the fastest fighter men or female to win titles in three divisions and choruses shields is plan was to fight for times last year. This fight against murray you care was initially scheduled for may ninth covid and did that so then almost immediately once boxing started to maybe possibly come back her and her team wanted to be one of the first fighters back. They went to their partner at the time showtime and they said hey we would like to be on an early card but it just never happened. She had dates in september. She had dates in october. Then she was told. Hey you're not gonna fight on showtime at all in two thousand and twenty.

God says that's a that like we joking but like put out an ad or get campaign going. that's like imagine walking down fuck in silverlake boulevard. Insert this street where there's half the amount of cars and it's quiet electric buses and like the sidewalks big enough that you don't if someone is walking slow or that's the only thing with l. a. If someone's waiting for a bus or someone on housed or temporarily on the street yes a big to do because we have no space for anybody. Because we don't think about the people on this. All we care about is like melrose is four lanes fuck lanes and parking on both sides. That's six lane six lanes four and it's dead stopped traffic the whole time. It's like i don't go need more more like you. John but i want. I understand not wanting to ride the bus personally. If you're one of those people but if we pay money and infrastructure into getty. You're never going to be forced to ride the bus this is. This is where i get really worked because this is a this is the same shape as abortion and the same anti vacs. Where it's like. No one's saying you have to get an abortion. You're saying we're not allowed. And i'm saying we because i'm putting myself on the left side of i believe women should do whatever the fuck they want to their bodies so but these people aren't just saying like i won't like i disagree. If you say. I will never let my daughter get an abortion but that might be the only person you're allowed to not let get an aboard right and like i get it. You don't want to vaccinate your kids. I don't get it. let them die. I don't give a fuck but you're not allowed to stand in front of dodger stadium and not let other people get it kovic dragging you out of your house to get a fucking needle in your arm. I'm with you on the nineteen eighty-four of it all okay. The orwellian of death death panel the version of death panels that applies to buses. I would. I honestly personally would be part. I would volunteer. I'd be part of that drag people out of their homes and forced to ride the melrose bus. Okay but you're right. It seems like it's a little bit far fetched. I don't think that's necessarily what's going to happen if we say Put in bus only lanes. The thing that to me seems like an obvious goal but is never never a goal. That seems like it comes out of any politician's mouth year is. La is the former and this is something people don't think about. Elliot's the foremost bus city in the country. Like we've lost a ton of bus ridership and yet like it. It is clearly the backbone of system here in a way that the subway is in new york city with the l. is in chicago. It's clearly the the centerpiece of our transportation system and you know more than a million people are writing it to get around out of the ten million people that live in the county so using no idea was that. That's a sad to fall has fallen quite a bit from there. I feel like now like eight hundred. Some odd thousand because of uber and sucks but the thing is like when you look at that and you see there's the The existing demand for that transportation service seems the reasonable response would be la should have the best bus system in the world. Why not it's not even that's not even a goal that like a lot of other places have or have to state but in la very much could be what we're targeting and it's just simply not like we're we're always like okay. Well good enough is fine for the buses and and then they'll be like oh but in but in fifty years our rail low you away. I like these people are like well. I'm not going to ride the bus. So i don't care i'm like well. What if we make the bus great. Yea maybe maybe. Maybe the reason we don't ride it is because it's a more inconvenient than it has to be a more crowded than it has to be a little more difficult to use than it has to be if we simplify all that and make it easier for people. Maybe you people might not use their cars or once a week. A person who would normally dry for that errand. There'll be like well. I'm not really going off melrose. I'll just take the train all the way down to stereo la buca and jump out there and have dinner like sex. Just shit you can do if buses are. That's like in new york city. It's just like you could be like. Yeah we'll get on the one and we'll go up and we'll get out at seventy six somewhere around there in l. a. it's like what. oh no public. Transit is not going to a conversation. People would be like getting your car. It's brutal it's eleven hours of traffic to go eight miles but that's the only way to do. It was like no no. I mean i've had so many experiences. Even even when i live downtown surrounded by all the where all the train lines connect up just trying to get people to try transit and being like you know this big booster for like look. I hate driving uber's expensive. Let's let's just take the bus. Let's take the train without fail every single time. I've tried to introduce somebody new to the metro system. It's like okay. We get to the bus stop and Yeah that bus said that it was coming in two minutes but actually came two minutes ago in the next one's not coming for an hour and you fucking do. You didn't do okay.

"Recent elections of like nip and people feels like the the right people who have like other people are getting involved in local politics. Pita like you and hayes flip something for a bunch of people who are like. Yeah i guess. I can complain about trump or i could like be a huge swing in this little council district which can have positive effects directly on mine and my neighbors lives and you just open my eyes up to that. So that being said that all into like do we should we have hope about. La should we like about the year like mass transit and like getting off fossil fuel cars. Complete though i mean yeah i think going back a couple of years like Things have changed dramatically. Like something an example that i can give that gives me hope for the future transit and l. a. is that those those cuts. They did to the bus service where they were just like okay. Twenty five thirty percent of the money that we're spending on buses. We're just gonna cut it. Fuck it everything will be fine. Most of the people who ride the buses are very very poor. And we just don't care what they have to say. They actually went through and undid those changes just about a week ago because there was such a huge backlash to that and that is something that i've never seen happened before and all the time all the years that i've been watching metro stuff here. Normally people show up there like a handful of people show up. They're like okay. You're making a very bad decision. It's going to hurt a lot of people they're like. Okay cool check do it anyway. I totally agree. I agree so like seeing them. Fully backtrack on something like that. Seems monumental and i mean like as as much as i love as much as i love it when i hear from people like you know ellie podcast got me into local issues and stuff like that. I feel. there's been a whole infrastructure. We're incredibly lucky to have just this infrastructure that's been built up over several years. You know groups like dsa and other local advocacy org who've done an incredible job of pushing that exact message that you're talking about. How do we channel. Some of the energy that exists year into some of the terrible ways of living that people are just accustomed to you and don't even think about on on a day to day basis so i do have hope and i think that it's really just a as a as a product of the energy that has been generated here and just seems like it is building and building every day so i feel that things will get better from my small slice of my small sample sale of l. a. people which is a lot of comedy people. Hollywood people and podcasts people. I'm happy to see a lot of freelancers with free. Like people who don't aren't grinded to the core like being like yeah wednesdays i do this like meet johari doing Like all these comedy people hayes being like maybe the but the icon of that. Of just like yeah. I've got into are volunteering and then helping blah and just seeing that and you're like oh that is something i could do with my time and and also i think i i'm thirty nine now and i'm like i'm around for however many more years and it's like do i wanna just care about like working money and going out to restaurants. It's like maybe. I'm and i don't have any kids and me and my wife currently are not planning on having any kids so we gotta spread our wealth at. Because i'm a big proponent of like i mean this is no one this is not brilliant mind thinking or anything but like if we all just put out like ten per if we moved our radius of what we are empathetic towards. Yeah out ten percent more. All of us there'd be so much overlap of our our empathy radius. That like you you wouldn't. I think the generation before us our parents generation. I think you're younger than me. But like our parents. My parents generation was like the. Get your kids to college. Get your kids health insurance and get your kids into a nice job and and fuck here and if your kids don't get it because your neighbor got it. I mean it's like if a neighbor gets it. It's not for your so. Do not think our generation is like ma- especially like pressure on i'm speaking. I don't have a kid that i'm stressed about like. I hope you're so michael. How do i make the world better for the world's slightly better for way more people like i think we all have a mindset. I'm i'm thirty. So i feel like My parents are very much of that. Same mindset you're describing as much as much as i feel like you know they have latterly tried to change that i feel like it's pretty deeply instilled in them but i feel like for us like growing up especially now it's become very apparent that like we are the people who the latter got pulled up on. Basically what are we going to be. What are we gonna be doing like fight it fighting over what's left after all. The glaciers are melting. Everyone and and i think it's partially age thing partially the vibe here. But i have confidence in la just because we are. There is still that hippie wellness undercurrent which is dangerous.

"I didn't think it was the best written article. I'm sorry whoever wrote it my bad but I just said that out loud and I think he's heard worse than that. I think I do think it is important to to point out that is an article about sobriety as a trend friend not necessarily true recovery very very different things and yeah and not written by someone who sober in recovery now it would be hard for that for Senator Understand Dan how to actually write a piece that touched on all avenue yeah absolutely 'cause 'cause all avenues were in that article article like any avenue ever in the history of mankind isn't isn't that our whole and you could tell it was written by an observer and not not a participant for sure what were your you. Were your thoughts on it. Honestly that Sunday I read that. It was very very upsetting to me. it upset me because my sobriety was such. We're such a fight at. I know that so many people sobriety is a fight and I felt like it diminished my pain in decades decades of pain. Cnet had come before me because it made it like me made it look like sobriety would super easy and that's not most people story or a I love Let people are sober curious and that more people are trying on sobriety and people are getting sober for the health of that but like if you're GonNa talk about sobriety like you you can't diminish the fact of what it of the hard work that's died by most people who are a large majority of them are trying to save their lives and so it really that part that part really upset made so I I I was like obsessing about it and reading other people's comments about it for unlike Sunday and Monday so I'm I'm finally okay about it. I see both sides but that was my first reaction action. that's how I on. I mean it's not new the this the trend if it's if it's truly early a trend than it's so new. It's so like just barely born you know so I I don't know I'm GonNa be curious to see Nada. Trend Ball all people entering getting sober for centuries and centuries. You know like ended your chip for their health. They did so they would stop. Killing themselves is operating everyone around that and that's the truth about what sobriety has looked like in the past week because more people are talking about recovery because these people are building building all these new paths and talking about like this alcohol free movement where you don't identify as an addict or an alcoholic. That's not where there is such just spectrum of of how one drinks and people didn't understand that before and so now that like I you know all these there's there are so many more people know happy about it on social media and writing about starting blogs using this that using the Taj eggs so it gives it was more people the opportunity to seize sobriety as like something cool and like that can that can help your health in multiple in multiple else for ways that that's very very reset and so I get like the new sobriety but it's not I don't I don't know yet and the new sobriety isn't like I'm so I drink a little because to me. If you drink a little niver like you're not really sober. I hate saying that because I'm like such a are trying to be as nonjudgmental as possible about composer cadre like if they're ask me like if I am. I find sober if I smoke. We easily like you're sober like if you however you wanted to find your like I'm not the judge and jury you can figure that out for me. Sobriety is abstinence but like claiming in a New York Times article that could reach billions of people that you're sober you can drink a little is like potentially harmful and dangerous. We just want to call bar for the like. I just like potentially really date. That's potentially dangerous is a very very like diplomatic weight of with that. I hear that and I'm like Oh Barth Yeah. I don't know I don't know but you're yeah to each his zone to each his own. I don't have time to judge everyone. I won't be a good the judge judge from repulsed drag race judging table that would be my I the I duNNo. It's it's going to be. It's going to be touching for a while just like watching watching the conversation continue and I know that the vox article that came out as well just talking about you know let's bring on the sobriety influencers now and I know that there's a lot of Kito of consumerism that goes into that and the yeah. I like that article a lot more not because just because my boyfriend was featured but because like it actually talk about like the struggle of what recovery and sobriety as talks about like house you as an influence or if you have an audience like that struggled with mental addiction. You must be very very protective about audience. It's you have to be really careful about what you're saying and and they they went they went more into doubt the like of like a person's recovery story as opposed to just like putting links of different programs that you can sell like. I think it was covered a much better earn. It sounded like it was written by someone who at least had a much had a better understanding of what covering that understand the Ghia I one hundred percent agree with you much better understanding you know and and to be honest there's so much about about that world that I am completely like ignorant of like when it it comes to like inflict influencers what they're selling and coaching programs like I honestly don't I don't know I don't think people on instagram. I just thought so. I kinda keep my blinders on and protect what I'm doing but I don't really pay attention the rest so I'm out. I'm sort of out of sync with that so I think there are some things that I was just unaware. Aware of like well like what would you say you were unaware of. you know the people without credentials selling winging expensive programs to people that are vulnerable and to like me being an entrepreneur. I've always managed like worked on events. It's like with for instance like with sober by southwest this past. March like that project was my baby with you know and and we and we wanted did you this. We wanted to bring that experience but it's also a business where you know you hope you don't lose money and you know and also being a woman. I you know I feel like so. Many of us are sort a pressure to apologize for wanting to make money and so I was sort of caught but I think when I when I first started here some buzz about people like being taken advantage of I was like wait but I'm not taking advantage of people if I'm trying to learn the business but there's just wasn't aware of and that's the thing is like there are people like you. You like Kali like like there. Are you know bore. Macau went like so many men Chris Amazing what he's doing a far bear so many people who are doing such good work and they were very but there are people who are like Dettori rely on the Internet so it's hard because like for me for example if I got to but like and Austin always gets this on his like how how dare you try to make money Africa variety or like how you know like like Houston T. shirts or whatever but unlike the sweetest person ever but like you weren't allowed suit make you're allowed to make money for the work you do me as like if I get paper like writing right like I know that I value myself my myself enough to you get paid but there are also people who are like you know like they may have five years sober. They may have like six months sober but like they don't care about like their audience. They're not like compassionate kind like they're. Some people are students. Make money and meet working in addiction treatment. I asked you know how mini body like predatory people there are who are trying to get people to reach out to them for help but who covered up the something else just so they can you know get them to treatment and get there because they have insurance alike. I reckon I'm like hyper aware to that because I'm in this industry and so I like I like see that but I ask so I I think it's hard because there again like so many coaches for example holly like I don't I've no if she had any coaching credential lane when she first started but look which she built like she's a bad ass so and and she saved and changed their people's lives so so it's hard for me to say like. Oh well you definitely have to have credential and let gets dislike. I think people I have to be very selective on what they choose to sign up for you now right and we're protective of that audience because we're in recovery ourselves so we don't want people all to be taken advantage of. I feel I don't know I'm still learning about that like I said I was completely ignorant about that. I could definitely brush up on my social. Media skills as far Farkas is like looking at a real life and don't starehe well no but I do post host a lot of videos of being like dancing alone in my kitchen. I love your I know but I I'm like this sounds spun today but but I also don't know about all the tummy teas so maybe although I get emails about that people being like email too. I finally felt like I made it and they actually follow up to their like an email. I'm like honey. I got it. I just deleted it. Yeah I know L. I find no not interested so tell me what's next. Tell me what the next year of your life looks like in addition to writing your book and working on your amazing career and and keeping your incredible relationship with cute boyfriend like what's going to happen in what's I mean honestly. I really don't know I never like I'm not a planner. I don't plan out my life like that but I plan to stick around at the at the work. I'm I'm doing I. I work for a treatment center are multiple treatment centers in California. Doing Digital Marketing Plan on obviously reading my book than getting the book proposal Diane. I'm going on a few trips this summer ministry my family soon like I'm GonNa do the things I've I do. You know every every single day like I. I don't hardly have any big plans other than like the biggest thing for me is going to be working on the book. Those are pretty big plans. They sound like to me. You're killing it Laura. I have come in as a writer so I don't do well. I have a couple more questions before we wrap it up. You know I knew that a big part of my hesitancy to get sober was the fear of missing out like imagining what life would be without substance. How would you address that. What what would you tell the girl that's just like you. That's the you know educated achieving. You know you know just like confident women that also has this thing this thing that's taking control and can't imagine life without it. What would you tell her. I I would say that we can do hard things and remind thank them that person of that but I asked like as I've already said sobriety is my greatest. It is the thing I most proud of. It has given me everything everything I never knew I wanted and so much of what I don't even deserve. I do know that I know how difficult it was for me to put down my might myself since of choice and I tried to quit on my own multiple times I would I would work on getting additional support that if someone has tried on their around to try to find something that interests them whether that be fair he or refuge recovery or yoga a or working working with the sobriety coach going to like Bana Sober event like yours like there are so many more options and Internet that has so much information now that I think we just work on actually doing the acts not just like thinking about quitting. We actually have to put down like that substance. We can't keep doing research in reading books and you know like we actually have to stop using are drinking in order to start recovering in that order. A lot of people wait to dive in. You know like I hear a lot a lot of women who won't who want to stop drinking alcohol and they're doing a lot of research about it but they're not actually stopping and so I think I like it really begins when you when you stop and it doesn't matter if you slip up or half a mistake drink again like you never lose what you what Uvira Barn during that time but your life will turn into something that you never could've imagined then and and it will be good so perfect perfect in so true. I totally vouch for all of that. Guy's everything she said is true. Well how can we you find you. Somebody wants to get in touch with you. Read your blog. Where can we go so on instagram. It's silly Leira that's where like I do most of my writing reading I write a lot on instagram and UPN visit my blog for like past work that I've done Larry Frazier Dot Com. I'm really not duty to many new blog blog post right now because I'm in the middle of writing writing the bulk and that takes it out of me but he followed me on instagram than that..

"Play not my life far before everybody addicted to substances because I was going from relationship to relationship a two relationship but there's a lot of pieces I've had trauma in my life not like huge big T. trauma where but little little trauma little T. trauma is trauma. I think my obsession with validation and my obsession with like what like trying to she constantly make my parents proud and live up to their expectations really hurt me. I quieted the voice that wanted to be an artist and via writer and and listen to it in i-instead shows to pursue a career in something about would make money so I think like I mean there's there's so much more to that but over time I've been able to unravel a lot more of why a like why I became addicted because I did have besides the fact that my parents wanted me need to achieve it was only because they wanted me to be able to have a family and provide for them like my parents loved me. Immensely I was raised in like a a wonderful suburban neighborhood in Arizona and my parents live my life like they were the ones who are searching the streets when I would go missing. They were the ones that got into Rehab. They would be the ones who show like showed up at psych words they can be out from jail like so so it was surprising because I graduated college in three three and a half years. I've Sumer crew had an NBA pepperdine like I was big at like an entertainment executive at discovery network and so it's it's Kinda crazy to think that someone with all this success in her life and who was loved so deeply in had such a wonderful family and have any trauma that you could see from the outside headlight got to be such up at that time I wanted to find myself is such a bad drug. Addicts will in there in lies the confusion with so many people when everything looks fine on the outside and then dot that voice starts to creep in and starts to ruin things and it's like well but wait. Everything looks fine. I there's no way I could have a problem on. Its it's so quickly it just it it you go to the dark side so this is. I hope that this question doesn't sound stupid but with with love addiction and drug addiction which when do you tackle I I I mean for me. Here's the thing I tried to tackle my my drug addiction but then and I got caught up in my love addiction and so if I am I didn't ever address the love addiction issue until my last treatment center Their wives are women in my life like my counselors. Rehab and women in in the twelfth step teenager that would tell me like you've who've got a problem with guys like you can't do this like I got several warnings and I just wasn't I wasn't willing to look at that because I also was like so oh terrified of being alone and I felt so defeated and I had such a poor self-esteem and have someone who loves me and believed in me and like reminded me that I was beautiful. I loved when no one else in the world. Were saying that like I. I was also obsessed with that. So what happened is basically there was at the medical director was as sex addicts at the rest we have. I went to and and he said Larry and I don't know why they sent me anybody finally but he said Larry you're never gonNA get sober until you you deal with your issues with men and I finally heard that and I liked died. Avi Treatment at at the Rehab but I dived into reading about love addiction. I worked. I went to sex and love addicts anonymous. I worked with a sex love addiction therapists and like I did that thing that they say a you know don't get into a relationship for a year and that doesn't mean that and I was perfect because I wasn't because I was still on tenure like talking to guys and sending them news and things like that my first year of recovery but I didn't get didn't get in a relationship and I was working myself so for me. I don't think it would have been possible for me to really get so had I not actually worked on them. Both at the same time time because you know I tried to stop using drugs then if there was a guy around some I would. I would use them instead so I think it's a different story story for everyone but like I typically would believe that we should address thing. That's like about to kill you and the thing that was to me was was drugs. Yeah that makes sense. What's the absolutely makes sense yeah. Thank you for explaining that to me. When you exited your last treatment and you know you're finally starting to get to the root of these issues as an established some really solid sobriety. What was your plan of recovery like. What were you doing to stay clean and sober in that first year and then what doc look like in years like two three yeah so when I finished treatment I went to sober living it was all female sober living and Dan I I lived there for a year I was like the House manager that sober living and also what I learned is my psychiatrist told May Day the best way to measure the health of a woman is her relationships with other females when he told me that is like I have no relationship better females in more like I pushed them all the way and I only wanted to hang out with food so it was really important for me to establish friendships so like being in an all women's sober living with other women my age who are going to meaty tour during the work who are committed to their sobriety and to also have like a stable environment that was pretty strict I've been to many several important four but none were strict as this one so that was helpful for me and I asked her joins I went on so I was in a group called drug addicts anonymous which I know you're familiar with but basically we use the big book of alcoholics anonymous but just change the word alcohol for drugs so it's very similar to a am working in like the AA steps in and working your way to the big book so I joined. That group got a sponsor. I worked through the steps within in six months because that group believed working the steps very very quickly before I went to S. L. A. I they do that very long. I probably did that for like four months but basically that it was too intense for me. It was like you had to identify like your bottom bottom line and top line behaviors and it was just like I always was looking at how I was dressing. If I was flirted like and and I don't know how much did I go but basically like the way that I was masturbating like all these all these things I had to address and it was just too much so I went therapy. I went to sex and love addiction therapy. I I got a job. I got a job at trader. Joe's working in Dallas. LS and like that was honestly wonderful for me. Because the community there were so supportive my recovery and I it was like a step down from obviously actually my professional life before but it was a wonderful experience to learn how to be responsible and accountable accountable again high also Oh. I didn't get relationship for year. I listened to a lot of music I wrote. I read a ton like I read all the time hi and I found and like for me what was important very important for me. Personally was to develop a relationship with God and I've always pretty much believed in God I never really had an issue with God but I thought of God is judgmental and so like I read poetry of Room Neom was able to redefine what God looked liked me into that was that was really really helpful. I hang out with my girlfriends a a lot like I just I had a lot of structure and for me. If I had really time it was like it was terrible for me. If I felt bored word I really couldn't handle myself so I tried to. you know I was kept busy might February and so in and actually it was about two years into my recovery. I'm still going to drug addicts anonymous when I was doing like three service commitments the week speaking treatment centers I was walking women through the steps I was in a new relationship e- N's I had this new job at a treatment center marketing and my life was just growing and expanding and I and I wanted to not have to do these slight the service commitments because I've been doing doing them for nearly two years like I wanted to drop one and I called my sponsor and she basically said she can sponsor me. If I dropped one of my commitments and so out of Ralph at around that time I started listening to the home podcast with Hollywood occur and more McCowan and they had this private facebook group and they were woman men in that group who relate recovery either win a as a supplement or like were holistic path without a for my whole trying to get over from two thousand ten at that period in time. I didn't even realize that you could get sober without a without working. The twelve steps theft like I thought that was the only way I thought you had to have a spiritual experience. I working twelve steps and there is no other way to get sober. Unlike when I first read hollies work mark like or hips bride manifesto is like Oh no I'm not oh no. I can't listen to that like that. It's dangerous spouse sewing like I was really against that but then I started being more open minded and I started realizing like wow look at all these women who they're not telling me that as only way instead like back I had been told not to reach South Health Book because the only book I needed was the big book which didn't really stopped me from reading help bucks. I I stopped but but like an I also at that time when you try like Yoga and people in my community were telling me like Oh that's too were like like kind of grow like winning two separate ray and do things outside of just a twenty four seven and in my in my community were concerned about that and so there were also issues like it was like talk to God go to a meeting our help someone else might I at that point like I needed. I needed something additional. There were issues in my life that that wasn salt in solving tests S. slowly my sponsor dumpy obviously and I didn't WanNa completely quit going to a but I so I kinda went but like we're you know once a one on search. Weiss a week and the people at my job they were very hardcore into a and they were very concerned about me. My boss told me I was headed for relapse laps a lot of my friends in the community like I was in. MDA eight I would I would die without a so.

"If you're the kind of person who calls out people for breaking their anonymity I would recommend you find a sponsor or for someone to help rather than judging people for their ways that they are trying to help so when I hear my recovery friends say in public or imprint that they're a member of a I am so proud of them for being honest and open and if you're shaming them for that doesn't make you a more devout about member of the program that just makes you an asshole guys. I'm saying all of this coming from a place of being so grateful for the program I give it a lot of credit for giving me a really solid foundation and a major selling point is that it's free and like nothing is free today but it's not a perfect program program and guess what nothing is perfect at a certain point you get to start developing tools to help you discern what is best for your life and your recovery the as you get stronger and if that means not going to meetings for a while so you can focus on something else. That's helping you then. That's a great thing. It doesn't mean you have to break up with the program. I'm altogether or that. You can never go back. It's a free country and you can come and go whenever you want. No matter what that old timer in the front row tells you you can also try it and hate it and never go back. That's fine too but I would encourage you to at least try it with an open mind and really try to work twelve steps not just I sit in meetings so just like shopping you gotta try something on first and see if it fits and if it doesn't maybe switch sizes okay try different meeting. Give it a shot. Just like you would also give other things shot and then pull what you need from each success you can create a program program with a little bit of this and a little bit of that and when that stops working try some new stuff the point is that you can always change your mind in rarely does anyone just picked one aspect of recovery and only do that one thing for the rest of their lives. Stay Open. Stay flexible and just make sure you're nice to yourself. The last piece I need to talk about is dedicated to those people. He loved to talk about why a doesn't work for them. If you've tried it and you didn't like it it. I am so happy that you figure that out but I don't think that means you need to start sharing articles about a being detrimental or creating a mission of telling everybody. Why A as bad. I mean if it didn't work for you. That doesn't mean it won't work for everyone. In fact it works for a lot of people but those success stories often stay within the rooms when people uphold that twelfth tradition of anonymity. The last thing we need to be doing is pulling people who want to get sober away. Hey from something that might help them. A might be one of those things but they'll never know it until they try it and pressuring them not to try. Something is what's detrimental. You have to let people figure out what works for them and then encourage them to try everything because we can never have too many options before we get to today's interview.

We'll let's dive right into this and if you would tell me us all of us your sobriety date and I know that we don't really have an alcohol story. We've got a pill story which we which we have covered on the show but would you describe yourself as a high or A. I love functioning user addict human whenever word I WANNA use why don't describe myself fanatic anymore so ooh I would have said that at first when I was just using opiates I was high functioning but then when I turn to adderall I hit tons and tons of rough bottoms and would be more way more low functioning and my sobriety date is February ten. France's fourteen love that congratulations on that. It's amazing feats. We'll tell us before we dig into your recovery giving you a little overview about you where you live how old you are what you like to do for fun. I just turned. I just turned thirty six happy birthday. Thank you eleven Tampa. Florida and I've lived here for a little over two years. I actually used to live in Dallas. I lived in Dallas for about four years before moving to Florida and I've lived in Los Angeles for ten years and I grew up in Arizona so what I like to do for fun a ED. I right I have a blog. I'm actually writing a book right now. As well I cuddle with my piggy pizzas and I run. I read a lot I listen to podcasts. I've been to I've shows on television too and I hang out with take my lover and my friends and that's kind of what I do for fun. I love it. All sounds amazing. I'll be over in twenty minutes to hang out. Let's talk about your story and we'll keep it short because I kind of like focus on the recovery side of things on this show and if you would just tell us how you got into it and got out of it basically the gist of it just like the beginning of it is I was in a car accident eh at work in two thousand when was this let's see two thousand and nine and I got prescribed opiates so that's kind of when when I got like physically addicted to opiates but for my whole life I was a high achiever. I wouldn't call myself a perfectionist actionist but I was really obsessed with my parents being proud of me and from outside validation and so I was always in competition with my sister and I wanted to be smartest her so like everything I did was about like leasing my family and during this time I heard graduated with my MBA a couple years before I had a wonderful job and entertainment and then I had quit my job to move back to Arizona. Ah because my fiance was unhappy in Los Angeles and we ended our relationship after a lot of verbal abuse but then physical abuse as well and so I was like kind of trying to get back to the life I want sad I moved back to Los Angeles and so I used like you know had this huge job. That was my identity and so I had finally after the job in television television production where I got in a car accident. I got an opportunity to be a vice president of sales for Entertainment Group. E End a couple of days before I was supposed to start the investors at the company pulled out so they couldn't bring me on board and I was like because my identity was tied to my labels and I define success is happiness that broke may and I felt suicidal unlike super depress and my was crying on the floor of my neighbor's apartment and she told me to call my psychiatrist and I called him and told him I was suicidal. I wanted to guy and he basically said he had the answer from the pill in a pill and I drove up to the pharmacy the next day and discover at that was adderall and I don't have add which is what adderall is typically prescribed for but he prescribed for depression and suicidal aviation so as soon as I was prescribed that drug with unlike five months I was experiencing drug induced psychosis paranoid delusional hallucinating voice sank in so for the next four years I kind of battled that addiction from living in my car being strapped down on beds and ciphered going in and out of Rehab and so relocated and I was also coming to terms. I didn't come to terms with this fact until two thousand fourteen but I was constantly getting out kicked out of Rehab. We're getting relationships with men and I was only hanging around that and so I realized also that I had a love addiction as well so in two thousand fourteen I actually went to treatment argyle while which is close to Dallas and I got treatment for both my substance use and hand my love addiction and it was the first time that I had gone to Rehab wear. It had a therapeutic component in terms of life trauma a treatment DBT CBT like the Rehab that I had gone to three times in Los Angeles. Basically said doesn't matter why you're addicted all you have to do is worked twelve steps in and you'll be freeing and so I never really dug into the underlying reasons for my addiction and I think because I both worked on my love addiction and had a different therapeutic approach is the reason partly one of the reasons why I was finally able to find long-term recovery man. That's a lot of stuff. I have a few questions questions. I is with adderall Did you start abusing it right away like to bring on this psychosis or was that something that like you were using prescribed and ended up so I was actually using less than prescribed prescribed at first because the doctor prescribed me the highest dose that you can prescribe in California which is like sixty milligrams a day and so I had I had tried our like once or twice but I didn't really know what it would do and so the first time I took it like I didn't sleep for two days. I was even like swallowing booze and Zanex an ambient to try to sleep because I had so many amphetamines ambien. I didn't have a tolerance I actually was using less. I would take like half of a pill a day but eventually like AAC it just my tolerance screw. I started liking war and I and I realized that I could snort the adderall with Zanex and so it's like I can't even think of the term right off my head but but mixing those two like it was kind of able to balance out the sediment high however like obviously by doing that and then continuing to take more that's what led me into the psychosis and and that started he said five months after shaking yeah yeah and another thing that happened during that time though is that when I was prescribe that medication I was dating someone and because my addiction had gotten so terrible he was from Quebec City and he we were living obviously in La but he wanted to escape me and he couldn't. He didn't have the guts to break up with me. You know he had tried to get me to stop. Do We'd read the drug that just wouldn't stop him so he moved back to Quebec City and when he moved back it was like I didn't have anyone to really watch over me at night and I didn't have to sleep in so I stopped sleeping so insomnia mixed with L. A. and all that yeah so I think that's why came on so much more quickly. There was a lot going on in my life during that time and I'm when I started abusing pills in the Berkeley and it sounds like you know usually my next question. Is You know. Did you get to the root of the issue but it sounds like the route was the the love Addiction Sean Right I think that's that's definitely part of it. That's the reason why I could never like maintain any sobriety because I would get with a guy and we'd relapse laps together. and I did realize that I had love addiction..

"All the way to the bitter end like he, he starts swinging at it, and then he sees it's far outside any lunges out farther for it, and then he sees it's even farther outside any extends in sorta gasps for it. Kevin. Balare until that pitch got past them was thinking hit. It hit. It hit it and Todd Frazier. Swing is a perfectly sensible swing for a pitchy got fooled by he it was one oh he thought he'd get a fastball. Took a big swing a fastball. It wasn't a fastball and he didn't. He didn't like go. We'll maybe I can still hit it. He was content to take strike. He just took the you know, he, he was gonna get a strike, and he swung right through. I mean that his bat did not deviate from its plane at all and is like you swing it a festival down the middle. Exactly. That's exactly. Right. And he I think that's a rational thing to do. He guest, you know, he guests or misidentified it and he was wrong. That happens all the time. It's quite a say a persuasive case to, to Sants stuff that he was able to mislead him. So, but is this any different than a batter who bails out of the way? Curveball in the curve ball drops into this own for a strike. Not really. You know, you, you, you, you just identify it wrong, and then it does something different. And in fact is lines we're talking about bad swings. I'm gonna send you a video that is titled is this the worst swing ever in the MLB must watch, and you're gonna be delighted when you open this. I must watch it so watch it. This is from twenty fifteen talk razor. It is it is a curve ball. He gave up on and then it broke back into his own, and he thought swing. And he's way too late. He's. Swings. Like, you know, like this, he's swings. As though the handle of his bat is, is sewed on his stomach, like an umbilical cord like the bat, never really leaves his gut any tries to sort of desperately chop at it. And that's Todd Frazier getting fooled another way. And that happens all the time. I think that if you just think about the incentives here you'd rather, once your fool that badly on a breaking ball on one out, you'd much rather take the strike than possibly make contact with it. And so I think that polars was rational to there were two strikes. Like you say he might have been trying to protect the base runner. And so he was trying to make contact. And so he did what he wants. He got fooled. He had to keep going through with the plan Todd Frazier, once he got fooled was able to just say will, you know, will will try to hit the Bank tomorrow and then Todd Frazier in two thousand fifteen had two strikes and had no choice. But to little silly, I think everybody's doing the right thing here in the that's all when would conclude based on those two swings that may be tied Frazier snot, great at picking curveball. The turns out looking his pitch values per one. Hundred pitches curve balls are actually the pitch that he's had the second best results on of any pitch type in his career. He has been a good hitter against sinkers and he's been a good hitter against Kurt balls, hint. He's actually worse it everything else. So he is he's good at picking up Kurt balls. Usually it looks like just goes to show that when we're at our worst. It's not necessarily Representative of our typical performance. I think that more hitter should be guessing more often. So maybe that's why he's good at hitting balls. Maybe he guesses and he takes strikes and hits dinger's. Okay. All right. And less thing, max Scherzer bunted in bedding practice and broke his nose. Bunted it right into his nose. I sympathize as someone who's nose has been broken by baseball under different circumstances. But equally embarrassing looking circumstances, I think, in my case it was just playing catch in the park and..
