"What's his name? I keep forgetting his name. He was in Spider-Man movie. Sophia Vargas, what's his name? Spider-Man movie. Joe Joe. Oh, yeah, yeah. Yes. What is his name? I can't even remember and I met him anyway. I apologize. I'm sure he does want to tell you. Yeah, I'm sorry, Joe. But he's done his and he's very into it. And I've definitely watched a good deal of. Geller Geller's wife or Geller's husband. Michelle gellar's husband. Freddie Prinze Jr., dude, D&D. And his is very easy to parse, I think it's pretty close to what we expect. Or what you could expect from a good group that is still entertaining, but at the same time, probably better looking than me and most of my friends getting together. That's another thing. You got us who are like, you know, everybody looking like their friends. But moving to games for a little bit, but I know you've got, I want to make sure I give you some time so that you can go get your haircut. But I wanted to talk about it. So first of all, did you like halo infinite? I did. I enjoyed playing through the campaign of halo infinite. I thought it was a very, very fun I thought the addition of the grappling hook was really fun. Well done compared to what I worried about, I thought it was gonna suck to be honest. I thought it was gonna suck. So there's rumors. There's a lot of, you know, we had some issues, of course, people leaving and stuff. There's been now, I mean, I've heard it from a bunch of people, I just don't know if it's true, but it certainly seems to be true, which is the idea of, you know, there's a possibility of them moving to unreal, which I think makes sense in some ways you have these custom engines for a lot of these companies and then over years they don't pan out as well. You see the switch. We see these big companies delivering products that are, they're not really ready for prime time now, which has been something for triple-A for at least ten years, where and by the way, why did I say triple-A? That's not true. I've seen Indies deliver games that aren't ready. But we do see a title like halo, which I think is premiere. We saw the Master Chief collection, which admittedly, in my book, was unacceptable in its original form, got somewhat fixed. But we see these companies have you, when you play a triple-A game, do you personally have a different expectation of that, is it price? Is it triple-A? Is it the company making it? When you and I'm not saying as a reviewer, if you're I'm not saying your opinion that you might put out there.

Jennifer Horn and Sebastian Discuss the Power and Magic of Radio

"Welcome back to one on one with kra LA's Jennifer horn. So let's tease this out because everybody's listening to the show why, because it's not just they want news. It's not just that they want information or the breaking news, they actually also want they actually love the medium itself. So let's delve into that for a little bit. You have taught me a great deal along with one other person who is also a mentor to me and that's John bachelor who I consider to be the master of the long form. I love long form radio. I dedicate one hour of the show. The last hour of the show, like this one to want to long form. And he helped me understand is you did too. With radio. Well, you just said it in the beginning. You said, you're talking to people at the most vulnerable, they're most private they're in their bathroom. They're at home they're making breakfast for their kids. So it's a different meal. Number one. And secondly, and I look at Russia and others who really led the way. Because it's auditory, there's no fancy visuals that you can use as a crotch. It's very intimate and it is about establishing a relationship, which really, if it's done well. And I think this is what you and your co host grant stinchfield and other great hosts to it's a friendship with the listener. Isn't it Jennifer? Absolutely. You know, I had a lot of coaching all throughout the years. There are a lot of people who go into talk radio consulting and there's a woman named Valerie Geller, who I think is, is phenomenal. And she's written a book about radio. And her most helpful piece of advice is she said, when you're doing a radio show, stick an empty chair in front of you. And just visualize the person that you're talking to. And so I think what's different is when you watch television show. And you see people even in cable news they'll say, our audience, or all of you at home. That's not very personal. Let's just mean you're one of the thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of people, maybe who are watching, right? But when you're on radio, when you are talking to you, can you believe this? What should we be doing about this? How do you feel about vaccine mandates? It becomes very personal. It's a one on one connection. You're not speaking to the masses in radio, or at least you shouldn't be. I think in good talk radio you are speaking directly to one person.

"On a trip when it was 99° and boiling hot, and I said, oh, it's such a warm place and I got there. Oh my gosh. I think I missed that. But it was lovely weather that day. And quite honestly, I felt after Hong Kong experience, which was wonderful, but very different to come to a track which was starting fresh, even though it might not have been considered a major track. I don't think that mattered. I wanted some of that sort of intimacy bank. I wanted a little bit more of that. And I got that. And I got the real hands on of being involved in putting every part of that piece of the puzzle together and having a very extensive role they used in many things which I am very grateful for because it helped build my skill level and it also helped build my gratitude, really, because I think when you look at yourself in the bigger picture, you're just filling a piece of the puzzle. And that puzzle is a major thing to be able to pull off. And a lot of checks have folded since emerald downs. And I see it, even Arlington just recently. And it's amazing. There is an Australian to see a track of that magnitude go under or go out of the Bolivian. Outrageous. And yet we've seen so many in the short period of our industry time and mine in relation to the bigger picture, I think it's really interesting to see what matters and little tracks might not be so little because I've learned that you can get things done in a smaller track that might be much harder to get done. Bigger tracks because there's more bureaucracy. That's a 100% fact, but my experience as well. Robert, always good to catch up with you. Always good to catch up with you and we'll continue to watch woodbine as you guys still a little less than two months left in the season and appreciate your time as always good to talk to you. Thanks, and I wish you well. Thank you so much. All right. Well, we're back after the short time out. It's a JSON horse racing podcast, brought to you by twin spires. This is the Jason beam horse racing podcast, brought to you by twins fires. All right, big thanks to Robert Geller always good to talk some woodbine racing with Bobby G I was good to just talk to Robert. And I appreciate his time. I come up tomorrow, Joe Bianca, going to join us from the TD end editor associate editor, I believe at the tdn and also a host of the writer's room podcast, a very good racing podcast, if you're looking for other good racing podcasts, we'll talk to Joe about all of that. And more on tomorrow's show, horseplay Thursday, Michelle, you're going to join us to talk Southern California racing and talk about some of the breeders kept contenders coming out of there as they have their home field advantage this part of this breeders cup season. So we'll talk about that with Michelle coming up. I got a great message. I think I want to say, you know, I tell these stories on the show. I give opinions that we talk about all this stuff. People will email me, hey, when did you do that talk about equity and pick 5s? I'm like, oh man, I don't know. Some Thursday in the summer. I'm bad about remembering when and if I talked about things, but I'm almost certain that I talked about when I was in Cincinnati about a girl that I was seeing at the time and sweetest day, which I think this past weekend was sweetest day and it just cracked me up that she remembered this. Because to me, it's just such a great story like her and I had met my first year at river downs. We decided that when I was in Portland, we were going to kind of keep talking. You know, we hadn't really dated very long when I left. But, you know, we decided, hey, you know, this is going good. Let's see how it goes. So, you know, I get back in September, whatever. And octo middle of October comes around and she messages me on a Monday just like ragingly pissed. And I'm like, what's going on? And she's like, you didn't even wish me a happy sweetest day. And I remember going what the hell sweetest thing? What are you talking about? And she was like so mad about it. And she's like, she's like, you don't need to get me flowers or car, but at least I wish me happy. Sweetest day. And I was sitting there looking at my phone. I didn't even text her. I called her right then and I go, what are you talking about? She's like, you didn't get me anything for sweetest day or say anything or anything and I go, I don't know what sweetest is and she was like, oh, okay, yeah, you're gonna take that account. So I told her, I was like, go Google this, 'cause I Googled it, and it turns out it's like a thing in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois or something like that. In that one Kentucky maybe like in that one little triangle of states. Sweetest day is like Valentine's Day, but in October. And so her and I have always kind of stayed Facebook friends. You know, we check in every couple of years we'll send each other a message. Hey, how you been, you know, she's a school teacher. She's a wonderful person. And she sent me a message on Sunday saying just wanted to see how your sweetest day went and I thought that was great. I had doctor in a while and it made me laugh, so good times, and if you're in Ohio or Indiana or Kentucky, you're Illinois. I hope you had a good sweetest day as well. Well, we'll see you guys back tomorrow, Joe Bianca joins us tomorrow. Have a great rest of you Tuesday..

"I think it dims and lowest the opportunity for that horse to season honors when they were not necessarily needing to do that. They had achieved the mountaintop really with the RICO with by mile. And it was clear that in a sprint they would have some pace pressure. But ladies slide the benefit and it was a great finish. I was surprised by the end of side running so well. I thought the run of the race was Olympic runner. It was an enormous finish, came from absolutely mild out of it to finish closing on them. Like a train and probably would have got up in another few bounds or 20 odds. But the reality was the race was really one early by Luis did really well on that horse and he rides Luis Contreras right really, really well for Ivan Delos. It just seems that I've had such a great partnership over the years and he's the owner and breeder of these flat up. Amy's flyers one of several really cool woodbine race horses that have been going on in the recent years, starship jubilee and pink Lloyd and silent poet. It seems like there's just kind of been and maybe that's always been the case up there. I'll be honest, I follow probably a little more since you've been up there just in general and it's easier just to follow raises too. Now with everything you can watch online. But do you have a favorite of any of the kind of local stars that have been there the last few years? You know, I do have my soft spots for horses. I mean, it's been a delight to call pink Lloyd. And I think the thing that pink Lloyd has suffered from is the fact that people are never traveled outside of woodbine. And yet to his credit, I thought the win by extravagant Dubai made it really helpful to pink Lloyd fans to say, you know, that horse was soundly soundly beaten by extravagantly with soundly meeting, I think it came out to win the big race in Dubai. And there's no adapting Lloyd is quite the legend in terms of woodbine. And it's just soft spot for me because very early on, the producer of the show on woodbine racing live. Would you like to do a segment on horses to follow? And I said, yeah, that was the very first segment ever. And I said, yeah, I've got my horse and I send it to him and it was pink wood and they had never won a race. And I was like, oh, this was going to be good. And the funny thing was, for some reason, timing, you know, how things change on TV. We couldn't do the segment. And I was like, oh, I don't know. I think Chloe came out of the next one. It's his first stakes race. And then it was he never looked back. And I'm like, damn. But ego aside, I always had a soft spot for him. And there's almost called sky gaze. I particularly liked because she is a man that Mark Cassie. Amongst his many, many entrance, has always put in multiple interesting races the last few years and she's been really valued. I know she lost for last start, but there was a day when I really liked her and she was about 20 to one. And I didn't understand why. I thought am I missing something here in the fall line? What does she want? I think Raphael and others was on and I was excited because I thought that was a great price play. So I always had a soft spot for her, but really silent poet was a very significant win after the death of Martha, a master Gonzalez was loved by everyone was wife of Nick and the Met horse went on to win in stakes company last year. It was just a really significant moment for everyone. But you guys always moments that take you to affinities for horses and people and I just think that's something that just you don't try for, and it just happens, doesn't it? Yeah. Robert Geller joining us here on the program. I want to ask a little bit about handicapping and pre ratio stuff. I feel like I've been seeing you on there more is that the norm or is that a newer role? That's a good question. I don't know. It's just evolving. I'm very happy with it. I think because what's happened is there's been a lot more coverage that would bind to being able to obtain through circumstances of the COVID situation that happened last year specifically, which meant that some of the codes like sports could baseball and basketball was slow at being able to get back. TSN opened up a space for racing to go and do what was called woodbine racing night live and racing night live has been a very big successful venture for the racetrack because it goes out to new fans who are watching on cable network. And so we feel that space and it's been renewed this year. So Jason's been involved in a lot of things. Jason port Wanda has since dawned I've taken on that role and other more I would say public speaking physicians because we did the second time basically stronger together. It was cold where Jim Lawson our CEO and he would talk about the developments in COVID. There was a lot of uncertainty. We were very penalized as a racetrack. Unfortunately, through policies and misunderstandings. But we got there. And so with his absence or his being stretched to do other things, I would cover him on the show and I was also interested in putting they wanted me to do some input for the racing right live show and I started doing some racing one O one segments that are terminology for racing fans who are new. But I'd like that. I actually find of course there's an ounce you don't want to be devalued for just by doing too many things that take away from the announcing. You don't want to be a premium donor. You want to find a balance. And I think it's interesting because sometimes when you get more involved, you enjoy the job more, but you have to do things you like. I don't like doing certain things. That aren't in my flow. I'm not particularly good at anything technical, and I'm not particularly rational when it comes to handicapping. I'm not one of those buyer people. I don't like space. You can so I'm very specific in the style I like to do it. But when it's in flow, I really like doing things. And I think camera for me has been much more enjoyable this year than it's ever been. I don't know why. So I'm starting to find that that might be an area where. There is value as the answer to be present in it. But I don't want it to take away from my position there. Yeah, I mean, I used to always love hearing you with Joe at emerald downs doing that kind of stuff. And it's funny because I've always said, I think one of your best skills is spotting how a horse is traveling during a race..

"I'd be curious to know what our listener breakdown is via like where. Like we know it's weird. Like, you can get graphs and statistics and all that stuff. And like, sometimes I'll, you know, I'll read the stats from what country I think I did last week. What country has our lowest listenership? You know, and there's always one download from some tiny country somewhere. But we do get breakdowns in terms of states and and all that. And if I remember right, I think California is the most, but that kind of makes sense on a few reasons, right? Like it's the biggest state, most population and I'm somewhat West Coast person. I'm trying to hold on to that even though I know that that's not going to be the case very long. But yeah, like we get all this detailed. Oh, no, no. Wait a minute. New York is number one, at least for the last month. Oh, that's by market. That's not states. Okay. I got it now. But anyways, but I'd be curious to see what people listen more in their car or, you know, just like in on their computer or phone, be curious to know. I know apple is the number one place people get it. So that makes me think that people listen on their phone most. But that can also be like, you know, you tie it in your Bluetooth in the car. That's how I usually listen to podcasts when I the only time I really listen to podcasts is when I'm doing the micro cross country drives. I don't have like regular ones I listen to, but usually like 5 day drive across America by the end of day one or two. You know, you've kind of gone through your shuffle and your music selections and usually it's like day two and three, I go day two, I'll listen to a lot of full albums and then day three I'll start getting into podcasts and start doing that. But how are you find us? I honestly, like, I don't care. I'm just so glad that you guys tune in and looking forward to talking to Robert Geller today, the voice of woodbine will recap a little bit of the weekend up there the EP tailor the new Arctic Roberts thoughts on some of the races from woodbine. He seems like he's been doing a little more handicapping on the television signal, so I want to talk with him about that. He's someone who I really have always respected his opinion for how a horse looks pre race and how it's traveling during a race. So I want to ask him a little bit about that. It was funny I was watching a documentary about Gary shandling on HBO. I love love, love loved. The Larry Sanders show, which was kind of gear shandling as a fake late night TV host. And there was a scene in this documentary where and it was funny because as I was watching it, it was after the race is Sunday Night. I got home from grant's pass where, by the way, we had a cat run on the track during the races. I posted a video of it on Twitter. It was kind of crazy. I just saw it out of the corner by binoculars. I go, is that cat? I said it in the race call, but the barn cat must have hopped over the fence and all of a sudden he saw a 7 horses running out of him and said, nope, I'm back. I'm going back. But I got home and was watching this documentary and prepping to questions to interview Robert with. And Garry Shandling is talking about this experience he had where he lived in Tucson and he was wanting to be a comedian in college. And George Carlin was playing up in Phoenix. So Gary drives in his car two hours up to Phoenix, and he goes in and he it's before the show, and he goes in and George carls just hanging out at the bar. And so he brought with him three, I think he said I came here if they were Scripps or just like ideas, comedy ideas. And they were in an envelope, and he said, you know, I, you know, mister Carlin, I'm Gary shandling. I would like to, you know, be a comedian, I would wonder if maybe you could take a look at some of my stuff. And so Carl says, I'll tell you what. Come back tomorrow, I'm playing here all weekend. I'll talk about it. I want to give you the night to read it. So he drives back to Tucson. Drives back to Phoenix the next day. Gets there and in the green room where Carlin is supposed to be hanging out is his notes, and they're out of the envelope. They're spread around and there's kind of notes written all over them. And so he's like, wow, he actually, he read it. He says to him he goes, you're green, but there's something there's something that makes me laugh on every page. There's something funny in every page he goes. And if this is something you want to pursue, I would do it. And the next thing Carlin did was, or I'm Shannon did was move to LA and pursued it and obviously was his career was arousing success. I bring that up because I had that moment with Robert. And so it was interesting, you know, I'm sure I've told the story over the years, but when I was working at emerald in the press box, and I had heard the call from staffer. This is Ariel call. And I went out by binoculars and I started practicing at emerald in the grandstand in the press box, not really telling anybody I was doing it, but just doing it and finally at the end of the season, I made a tape of my little tape recorder. Affixed to my T-shirt. And so finally at the end of the season before they let out. I took my tape to Robert, and I said, you know, would you mind? I've been practicing announcing what you mind listening because I had met Robert when I worked in the press office there. So I kind of knew him. And I remember I'll never forget he was sitting there listening. It was on old headphones and cassette tape. And he just sitting there nodding, yes. Okay, yes. And he was so encouraging. And he really just stopped me and he goes, you can do this if you want to do it. I think for a lot of people and obviously Gary Chandler, it's happened, but I think this story is very universal for a lot of us in our lives. We have someone early.

"Whatever it's easy to read books sparking hard to read them. But you gotta try if washington desperate housewives. I'm going to give you a one. So you're rating the person right now. I'm reading this This like very like non real not a real person but look the desire the desire our spend watching desperate housewives. I would say that is one on a ten scale activity that somebody would do. Maybe two if i'm really jenner's and say washing professional wrestling is a five Yeah neutral because there's something about it that i respect which of course it besides the fact that it's people actually good at very good at something doing something very well but i also liked the vitality of it like i think the energy and the vitality of it it's almost like listening to really like intense Like a rap song or something like it has like a good like confidence. Almost you know Energy like can transfer to the viewer as well. I imagine you can wash fucking wrestling than going to the audition or some other like a job interview. And i'm gonna fucking kill it. I love it for that. You know like would gives to to. It's a tool. I feel like it could be a tool to somebody. And so i'll give it a five but you know i can give them more than that but like five is a new church. It's not bad five. Sounds a lot better when you when you start with a one then. A six does from a ten. No for sure i I was yeah. I was laying on the land here very clearly and by the way. If you'll love bachelor or desperate housewives or any sort me at shut up. I love at one. I am watching the bachelorette season so am i watch. Tv show alone is the best show on television. Shane watson poorly. What's what what about you. Where does wrestling full for you. In comparison to some comparisons to something else. That's a tough one. It's never easy. It's not hurts. i will say. I just want to point out because i thought that was so interesting when you compared wrestling to rap music. I think that is such a good interesting comparison. That other people may not understand but when you said that i was like that's exactly what it is because you know i'm not gonna listen to rap music but i'm like if i can see like the very specific very like angry rap. Music can be looking yet. That's right. I'm gonna fucking do what i have to ben you have. So that's what i'm saying is like the common perspec- the common perception of rap music is anger violence. But then you listen to like. Let's say kendrick lamar and you hear. He's talking about struggle and pain and and heartbreak and sadness and love and triumphant. There's all these different emotions hidden behind. Under the perception of this violent loud you know extravagant form of of music. So i think that that is an extremely accurate comparison. So not oldest songs though. Not all the rap songs to do that. Do calling back. I was listening just to be like mike crazy. Like how did the song was written. Move bitch get our the way ludicrous. In his way merely for real for real there was some lady his way and it was but it was also talked to. All women like you could tell from like the lyrics. So of rap was around which is called the era. I'm a big fan of eras and their names shane. Please tell us what's the deal. What are you going to compare it to. So i'm gonna actually compare it to hip hop music to route. You loved it. I loved that comparison. And i love rap music i rap..

"Sakes for for not hurting themselves as much either. I would say that the that that does play into a factor of the switching from from real to fake. But i think that's probably that was probably secondary so i think what happened and i don't i this is just a real. I love it. i love it. I wouldn't take a guess that they changed over to decide who wins and loses first and then people were getting hurt and the wrestlers probably came to the bookers and said. Why don't we choreograph it. So wasn't choreographed. At first. it was just. They knew who was gonna win. You know boxing. Yeah exactly boxing today. Exactly and what we're talking about is so long ago. Was that what anybody's even enjoyed in. The past forty fifty years swatter television is is not what any of that was that it's been entertainment for quite some time. Now yes so the term So the term that's used in wrestling is is k. Fehb which was originally a term used by people in the professional wrestling industry. You know in those like the thirties. Forties era to let other wrestlers knows like a code word to let other wrestlers note that there were fans around so to get into character and so if there was a bad guy hanging out with a good guy and they're like really good friends You know so bad guy as a heel a good guy as a face So if there's a face in a he'll hanging out the second that they hear the word k. fe they switch back into and they are not seen together. They loathe each other. You know joe night when you see us like you like fuck like this doesn't make any sense before we hit record it was. I mean it was. It was total. Kafer yeah exactly. This podcast is actually a cave this. Yeah this podcast is caffeine. You're experiencing it now from what i understand that they've kind of let go of that a lot obviously with the reality shows and and just in their general public life. Yeah so that was. After the nineties there was there was a a a thing called the curtain call like an event called the curtain call which was at a non televised event. The four wrestlers scott hall.

"Goes it goes in and out so wrestling is only as good as its worst storyline From a wise man thank you thank you because so there are two there are two. Wwe programs a week main You know main roster. Wwe programs to guys kind of an idea of what. The wrestling world is as far as programming goes. It's you have monday night raw. Then you ever friday night smackdown. What that is. Those are two different rosters Because they have so many wrestlers. They split these brands into two separate shows. Basically doing the same thing telling completely different stories. So the fried smackdown always. We're missing women. This is bad. yeah I don't wanna pull you guys away for a mezzo. Us want to end this. We just go and want to load up on rock. Yeah we'll be back and we're back. That was crazy. Episode crazy guys knew. That wasn't real though right. Yes so okay. Raw is three hours long on monday. That's three hours long. It was dying football. Had to deal with that. Yes yes Tough smackdown is two hours long. Then they have a show called annex t which is originally started as the developmental program So it would be like you start in annexed. He and then you get brought up to main roster smackdown or raw and then it kind of evolved and people realized well. The best wrestling is happening on an xt. Because it's people who are giving it all they've got the writing is a little there. It's a little bit more hands off And kind of letting these characters exist to find their their voice and their their character And then it just you know it became. There was a lot more creative writing on an xt. People were taking more chances. Those chances were paying off. So people start loving annex t and so now it's kind of become this third brand so that's that was wednesday's and now that's tuesday's ben. Another wrestling company started up two years ago now called a e w With is run by tony kahn. Who owns the.

"You're watching women's wrestling to watch women and that thankfully has changed significantly to where the tops. Some of the top stars in the industry all over the world right now. Some of the best performers. Some of the best athletes are are the female wrestlers. Yeah blown up enough to their reality. Show an some arguments. I would say they've the reality show helped blow them up gap salute. Yeah i think that they were. It's interesting so this is the bella twins they were kind of They became like the turning point in one of the turning points in female wrestling where or women's wrestling when you started to notice. Hey this more people were starting to talk. Hey this is more than just eye candy. This is like their true athletes in. And i don't want to diminish the true athletes that were there in the attitude era and like early Wrestling like gail kim and Trish stratus and they were still fantastic. Athletes they just couldn't get through the glass ceiling that was triple pane and said they weren't given opportunity exact even be athletes. And so what happened. Was there's Within the past four years there was something called the women's evolution. Which is they went from being called divas which was what the division of women's wrestling in. Wwe was called. It was called the divas division To just being women Which was nice which was a nice change. I'm sure for them. Diaz alter yeah doesn't have the greatest connotations attached to and that's that was kind of the believe we're in a new era now right yes so i skipped over an era which is called the ruthless aggression era which happened which was like which was like a two thousand four to. Let's say two thousand and ten. I could be wrong on that last number. But i know it started in two thousand four actually started when john cena debut. This was before white. Rapper this was before that he was the doctor of thug annex. Which was his real title can't believe it seems like a distant memory now. Yeah yeah madonna. Del formative family extremely. It's what made him. The wrestler is because like that's when people started giving 'em attention he was just above guy and boy shorts Who was like a decent wrestler and was good at being angry. And then he dressed up as vanilla ice at a halloween party. A wwe halloween party and they're like you know spit some bars like you know rap and then he wrapped and everybody was like. Wow you really good. And i forget who it is but somebody leaned into him. It was like. That's your gimmick. That's what you gotta do. You gotta be a white. You know white rapper. And each of us. yeah again. The story so shane when wrestling zahn you glued to the tv. What's your deal like. How obsessed with this thing so it.

"That's the thing is like you know. This is kind of a all over the place in the way that i'm explaining it but manziel. Yeah i need you to know that your man's planning right now. No i tell my husband all the time and he's like well. I'm explaining something to you like holly you make it anything but that also you guys asked me to explain it to you. I feel. Kindness isn't trap. no no no. I actually don't mean mentally simply negativity just woke up from a nap. Five more minutes where. That's an excuse so i'll take it back. It was just a regular regular regular explaining x. but yeah so basically. That's that's my history and then in college you know i kind of kept up with the. I'd see you know posts on the internet. I'd see stuff and i never like. They tried to beat it out of me but they never could because it was like i always had an appreciation and love for the theatrics of it. You know and i'm curious actually gonna hurt real quick so obviously wrestling appeals especially somebody who participates in wrestling like yourself to somebody who loves the athleticism overhead but also theatrical element and i love percentages. Like it's joe. Live by percentages hanson rating system on this podcast so what percentage if you were to give a percentage to like to theatricality of Wrestling another want to death. Lettuce system albeit. Where would it go or has it changed over. The years has changed. I don't think it's. I don't think it's changed. I'd say. Seventy five percent theatrics twenty-five percent athletics. Because not yeah so not a big fan of much wrestling like to watch. Well that's a. That's a different thing it's like. Yeah it's like changing the channel. You know it's a completely different thing is like i can watch amateur wrestling and appreciate it the same way. I can watch like strongman and appreciate. Wow that guy. Just lifted so much weight and then i watch amateur wrestling. It's like. Wow that guy so fast on his feet and if i watch professional wrestling i'm like wow that guys loud and he has a funny voice cool costume and he just did three backflips in a row. Like it's it's kind of all encompassing. It's it's such a tough thing to split up you know because there's so many aspects of professional wrestling that work together perfectly to create this incredible form of entertainment. Yeah there's the acting within the match and within the physicality but then there's the monologues the backstage bits and they the store lines get really crazy. I remember One valve venus had sex with like a triad gang members daughter something in their non to cut off his penis backstage with a samurai sword and the lights go off and he saved and they reveal that it was john.

Like fetch It's like It's like if a mom dog picked up a dog by the back of the neck Accept it it's the front at the neck and then the baby the mom dog through the baby dog into the ground. That's what a choke slamming. And that's what you did to your fellow Neighbors yes yes. I was not six to three hundred pounds. But i was larger than that and we all got very interesting and then because of that as i was i graduated middle school and then was going off to high school and i wanted to play sport and i'd played every sport i could try and I didn't like football. But that was kind of what i was built for and then i found wrestling and high school so i wrestled for two years Which i was very shocked to find out that is not the same thing meaning. There's less of the theater element in it. There's the moves you cannot do a choke slam nope nope it's all like raffling. Just it's grappling straight grabs. And i enjoyed it but the community was very strict. They like no nonsense. You know. I mean it's like everybody was treated like an olympic athlete. There where it's like.

"Why out shoutout to the audience. Exactly so yeah we. Can you tell us more. Shane like to our audience. Maybe like me but maybe they just like wrestling professional wrestling to them is just. The word is just as background noise. That can hear keep hearing in their life but they don't really understand like what does it so unpopular about it because there's so many people who follow it so that's the thing is. I don't think it's unpopular by any means like we said it's a multibillion dollar industry. I think it's misunderstood by people who are not wrestling fans. I think once you're wrestling fan. And you kind of open your eyes or or you open your your mind to it your heart your heart your ears your orifices you can open your orifices wrestling. All you want there are wrestlers. Who have done it but Yeah i think it's it's people view it as as kind of in the same way that you would view like. Tlc show about a person who weighs too much like it's just trash television And advent like dorky like to. That's like the thing that yeah exactly so often. I hear from people who are You know diehard anime fans Calling wrestling fans weirdos. And like you know it's fake right. You know like that. That is i think the most common misunderstanding in The world of professional wrestling fandom is that everybody knows it's fake. This isn't news to us. I believe is is is like the late nineties was when that became like universally no according to my research. I hey. I've read an article about professional wrestling two hours ago. Apparently like people in the early twentieth century thought that this is still like authentic and then that's ideas slowly started to disintegrate throughout century. Kind of like watching a jackie chan movie and enjoying it. Then someone says you know. That's fake riot. He did the fake controlled stunt for entertainment. But it was. That's why it was awesome. Because it was done and and they did it. Yeah exactly. I think i think it's a in a way. It's a lot like kung fu movie. I think that's a really good. That's a really good comparison is because often people like oh well it's scripted And sasha i want to get back to the history of of professional wrestling and the the understanding that it's that it's scripted In a minute but for that comparison. It's yeah it's it's like watching a 'cause it's not choreographed fully you know There's a lot of communication in the match between the two performers There these performers are some of the most incredible athletes. You can you know you can watch because it's just the the pure strength the agility the the ability to do what these people are doing is not something that just a normal person an untrained person can. Do you know endurance is insane. Exactly i mean there's what is often referred to as like an iron man match is like a sixty minute match you know. There's there's some great classic ones between like shawn michaels. Bret hart you know when you when you watch the best in the game. Go sixty minutes. It's like a a the most common thing. I compare it to is ballet..

I got new kid on the way that. Say the same thing i'm like. Hey i adopted a puppy and a kitten this year. We're doing great so all about perspective. Exactly they're all making me jealous. I need at least two more puppies to make this year balance out so many to be adopted crystal do it. Well laura always handles intros. 'cause i'm a little bit nervous about getting right into it but has it affect awesome. Well should grady's child come. Well we're on this podcast. My payback will be. I will do the altro and i will make it really fun and exciting or grady as well as for everyone. I'm going back. ok. Grady make sure your wife is holding that kid in just a little longer. I will awesome. Well really excited. But i wanted to start off by asking or having you because lauren. I know your stuff all the time. I'll tell us a little bit more about what you as the trainer. Yeah you bet so. One of the initiatives that we've got going on right now is trying to scale our on boarding process trying to scale our customer education process and so i- host to open our series for the company the first one is called new customer webinars and it's designed for customers in their first thirty days. Tell them to get acclimated. Software learn how it works. Learn some use cases and then the second series. I host automation hours and in the automation hours. What we do is we help. Customers have been with us for plus modestly around that area and we on one of our amazing partners. Join us and talk about some more advanced topics really revolving around. Yeah that we've got to automate yet. The most success out of our software not about baseball. I know automation hours. Have come in really handy especially during covid trying to work on their make. Sure that it's functioning need it. Would that be honor now. Is i think when you're working in your business. That's when you're like you're not putting out fires and you're just like everything's just going in years. I'm just following along your day as managing you working on your businesses that outside in approach What's working what's not. How can it be more intentional. I think there's a lot to do right now. Is is pivot is the word. I love the geller. Mantra they saw. Hey i can't do business the way that i was before i've got a pivot somehow and that's really how the automation hours reborn like. We were going to have these going for two weeks as we find the curve and it was going to be done jokes on us. It's still going and so we have to go. And it's been a really really wealth of just good information and actionable content or just people over and over. And we've actually raiders to come and join us for every single session with great And so it's just great those customers out there that know that one of the best can do for your business get educated. Be able to know. Hey there's probably things out there that i don't know it's that vulnerability i talked about the such a failed entrepreneur like we have to be vulnerable in order for us to get better. You go to the doctor and you've got some sort of chest pain in the ass. You how you're doing. You're saying. Ben tastic dot can ever better like you're going to have a hard time. I've actually gone to the doctor with my mom or and they asked that question and she's listed like twenty things wrong with their before we get there and she's like oh he's been really good and i'm looking at her like no. We're getting into this today. So i'm like what about all these things doc looking at her like how could you say you're good with all these example. I know and that's really cool that it that it just took off like that you know you were only planning on having it a couple of weeks and here we are. That's amazing now. Do you see that these new customers have some common issues that that you also have. When you're starting your business i mean. I know we haven't gotten to that yet. So i know i'm jumping ahead. But the reason why people jump into these webinars to fill any kind of needs that they have. I think for me. The the common thread that i've seen is in. It's kind of but the idea of follow up. that's the global. There's different ways that we follow up that we follow up but follow up his always the common theme. It's an idea of something has occurred. And now i need to react to it and i don't do and so helping customers realized that one is that. Hey there's stimuli out there that usually react to and helping you understand how you can react and what tools you have at your disposal calva. Sylvia that reaction

"Even when they weren't under compulsion to do so any longer. I think looking at the shaolin brothers shows us the different ways that jews have historically reframed their identity immaturity even though none of this is is exceptional to our world even though these are all things that we have open to us today and try and explain that the the generation of gershon vendor eric and reinhold show was among the first to have the opportunity and the need to reframe their jewish identity as they felt that their parents world of liberal assimilation was failing that they saw an end as they felt that their parents. Judaism was spiritually unsatisfying. Yet they still identified as jews. They sought for themselves away to redefine their jewish identity. Yeah i mean. I think that that's a a story that that we see. Play itself out again and again Across generations why is it that you think that this story is so interesting. And what is it that you want us to take away from it. In the biggest terms that german jewish history matters. And i think it matters now actually more than it did twenty or thirty years ago. I mean the american jewish community which is highly integrated and economically successful is finding itself confronted with rising antisemitism debating. What it should do. We ask ourselves who our allies. what should we take. And we don't know the future. I mean i'm not saying that. To american jews are going to face another holocaust or even the rise of fascist government but the american jewish convene might find it interesting to reflect on the choices made by german jews. Choose like the showrooms and the institutions that they established institutions mike the central council institutions like the lower house and look at those models as instructive if inspirational for the construction of the community and as elucidative unreflective of our own debates. You know. I think that the american jewish community has debates about the nature of jewish identity. Religious diversity like these have echoes in the debates in the german jewish past debates that the show of family had as it developed and forged its own identity as germans jews and his german are. Well thank you so much for this really. I think interesting conversation about the show about german jewish history. So just want to thank you.

The show alums a history of the german jewish bourgeoisie from emancipation to destruction. It's a fantastic book. That tells the story of german jewry as a whole through the history of one family and in particular the four scholem brothers each of whom followed their own political and historical path gerhard or gershom scholem the zionist who is most widely known for his scholarship on jewish mysticism alongside. His brothers. varner the communist. Reinhold the nationalist and eric the liberal. It's a multilayered approach towards thinking about jews in germany as well as the broader possibilities of history and its contingency the scholem brothers really showcase the myriad possibilities for political and cultural activity of jews in germany prior to the second world war as well as the different outcomes of the jews in germany verner was murdered by the nazis at involed gershom immigrated to palestine and eric and reinhold made their way toss. Australia altogether sketches the outlines of the german jewish cultural and political millea as the diaspora of the jews of germany after the holocaust and so the scholem family is simultaneously an eminent middle class. Jewish berlin family and at the same time. It's also distinctly normal quotidian every day it showcases through this microcosm the whole story of choose in germany in the lead up to the second world war and the holocaust as well as aftermath jay. Geller is the samuel rosenthal professor of judaic studies at case western reserve university's department of history in addition to the show alums which will talk about. Today he has also written jews in post holocaust. Germany nineteen forty five to nineteen fifty three. I'm so excited that jay is able to join us on the podcast today to discuss the show alums and german jewish history in the largest terms the book and the issues that it raises helps us to think through both the history of jews in germany as well as the legacy of german jewish culture on a wider scale. Thanks for listening in. Welcome to the podcast. Thanks thanks for having me. This book is is such a fascinating. Approach the micro history really that is focusing on the four scholem brothers. You know obviously gershom. Scholem is definitely the most well known of these figures who are studying you as a major figure in jewish intellectual history jewish scholarship. But i think that part of what you've done here which is so interesting is to bring forward a handful of people who each represent different pathways through german jewish history and this really illuminates a lot of important issues. Do you maybe want to explain briefly about these different trajectories About these different figures in the show family and what they represent in the eighteen ninety s arthur bitty show-me who are the owners of a print shop berlin had four sons reinhold arish varner and gerhard litter known gershom and in time they viewed the travails of german society and experience the ambiguities of not the difficulties of german jewelry and they chose for different political paths. Brian whole the oldest was a national liberal or right liberal. Eric was a liberal democrat or a left liberal van was a social democrat and later became a communist in gershom of course was zionist so in this one family among these four brothers we see four political paths taken by german jewry in the first decades of the twentieth century raven. These weren't the only pads but they were by far the most common covering most of the political spectrum verner began his career as a socialist but he joined the communist party at the time of the The merger of the independent social democratic party but the communist party and he quickly rose to become the second most powerful member of the german communist party. He was a personal rival of of stalin and the stalinist clique in german communism in the mid nineteen twenty s when stalinist is attempting to take over the other communist parties in the commoner

It's just just Listen, Tonto, listen to the The person that you're listening to it and and and don't ask questions. Okay, not to speak ill of the dead. Yeah, he didn't. He didn't prepare because he said he wanted to come at the person the same way his audience the list, knowing anything. Yes, And if he knew too much, he might not illicit the valuable information that his listeners would need. If he already read the book. Well, then he already knows where the story's going. And he would ask leading questions. It was a perfect cover for a guy who might have been lazy is lazy gets, but it didn't matter. Hey, Tom, enough energy to have like seven heart attacks. Yeah, That's what I got. He said that he actually was considering killing himself in 2019. I don't wanna live dependent on others. I've had a full career. There's nothing like This is a fiesta and to accept just to do more. And I thought I'd buy. I don't know how to commit suicide. How do you convince yourself? I don't know how they were pill you could take that might be a pill. I don't know. I was ready to bite the bullet. And I said to him chance. Bond. He started to cry. I have seen a crisis and she was three years old and he said, You can't leave us. You can't leave us. And I changed that minute. I was losing thing, and then I wanted to get better. I want to get better. Not to be on the air. But for the kids, you know, there's nothing beats Children. Nothing. The best thing I ever did in my life was be a father. Yeah. Okay. Hmm. Esso interviews ever watching Interview Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra, the Beatles. Jerry Seinfeld. Lady Gaga, Who, by the way, dressed up like Larry King for the interview with suspenders that tie really Donald Trump and Snoop Dog, Tina Tammy Faye member her Sure Tammy Faye Bakker. Yeah. And Putin them all the time. He talked him all you know, So I go. I go way back with Larry. Not that we ever met. But I knew him. Not through a CNN days. I was in college when he had his late night radio A show on mutual. Uh, Network. I guess it was and the best thing for me, so it's a three hours showing it would run. I don't know it was like from 10 to 1 or from 11. It was a really a late night show, but I'm I'm something of a night out, and I used to love the third hour and I don't know if he did this every night or if it was just like Friday night, so his third hour would just be storytelling, and he would tell stories about his childhood in Brooklyn, growing up in Brooklyn. And they were hilarious. And I think right now I'm lucky enough to work with a guy who reminds me when you tell your stories. You remind me of the great Larry King because you all be often suspected. There was a kind of polish to the stories because the punchlines were so perfect, but still there was more truth and than fiction in those stories. He's a great storyteller on the air, and so are you. Let's remember, Tom. Thank you. That's very sweet of you. He that when he was doing that, that was like one o'clock in the morning. Yeah, no more guests. No more phone calls. Yes, like Let me tell you about the day And then I met John F. Kennedy. I'm driving my car. It's 11 o'clock in the morning. And I wasn't paying attention and I slam into the back of another car. I see his head move..
