Capstone's Jared Asch Welcomes Loella Haskew and Cindy Darling of Walnut Creek
"Jared Esch, the host of The Capstone Conversation. Today, we are joined by not one, but two awesome women from the city of Walnut Creek. And we are going to hear about what inspired them to run for city council. What are some things that they want to encourage in other candidates who are considering to run or not to run as you make the decision ahead of next year's elections? And that applies to people throughout the whole East Bay area. That's not just here in Walnut Creek. So hopefully their message will resonate with people throughout. So first thing we will do, Mayor Pro Tem Luella Haskiw, do you want to go ahead and tell us a little bit more about yourself? In my career, I was a CPA specializing in tax, but I also did family law consulting and other business consulting. And I was inspired to run for a couple of reasons, one of which is I was close to many of the people who were on council and I just absorbed a lot of what they could accomplish by talking to them and watching them work. But also, I believe that we were going into an interesting economic cycle and maybe somebody who had my experience would be a good addition to the council. And our next guest is Councilwoman Cindy Darling. Cindy, tell us a little bit about your background and what convinced you to run. Well, I'm one of the newest members of the council. I was elected in 2020. Before that, I'd served 10 years on the planning commission for Walnut Creek. So I'd seen a lot of the issues that were working in the development end of things kind of bubbling up that were going to council. And I was interested in having a bigger voice on those than you just have a planning commission. I'm also a small business owner here in the city, and I spent most of my career working on really tough, naughty environmental problems around the Delta endangered species. And I felt like I developed a lot of skills there in helping people work together and solve problems creatively. And I wanted to take those skills and bring them to the council and help move Walnut Creek in a great direction. That's great. I appreciate that. Luella, you've been mayor two times, including 2020 during the start of the pandemic. Pandemic issues, businesses shutting down and then lots of looting here in Walnut Creek. What was it like to be mayor during that time? Can I say that the first round was was sweet. I really enjoyed the first time when it wasn't quite so stressful. But I will say about 2020, whenever I've talked to anybody who have had been mayor in Walnut Creek the last year to have been assigned a job with mayor, there were so many issues. We had a police shooting that was under scrutiny. We had looting. And I'm not even sure anybody knows to this hour what triggered the big looting that was at Broadway Plaza. It could have just been the gangs that were beginning to form and take over other places. But we forgot about Walnut Creek has some really nice high end stores to do. And then they all came. I don't think it had anything to do with the political choice. Nevertheless, it was incredibly damaging to the people who were at Broadway Plaza and it didn't stop there. Other people were involved in it. I make a joke about the fact that when George Floyd had been killed and people were really involved in making protests, a whole group of people showed up at nine o 'clock at night on a Wednesday and had a riot in our front yard doing a significant amount of damage to our garage doors, burning flags, scaring the bejeebers out of our neighbors. The police did call us and say, get out of the house. So we were safe, but it was an ugly experience for the neighborhood trying to find the best of the worst. We did have to buy a new garage door and we now have a battery pack up. And then I made it onto the news the next day. So good spads, but it was tough and the fiscal issues were tough. We started out with anticipating a comfortable excess budget. It turned out that when everything had to close up, sales tax went away and then we had to figure out what to do about that. And we got lucky that we came upon the pop -ups, the restaurant pop -ups, and we tried every way we could to save all the businesses, did away with our now famous parking meters and let people park. There weren't that many people using the parking meters. And so it was a very difficult time. Nevertheless, a sense of proportion, a great council, a great staff got the city through probably one of the most difficult years the city had to survive.

"Today is a story of peacemaking, particularly 1919's of six -month Paris Peace Conference culminating in the Allied Powers Treaty with Germany, the Treaty of Versailles. And it has a lot of moving pieces. We'll start with the U .S. midterm elections of 1918, which could impact the Senate's future choice to ratify this treaty or not.

The Los Angeles Times declared, there are few living talents who could be viewed as as much of a New York theater institution. Interview Magazine said it would be difficult to overstate his status on Broadway, and Tony Kushner proclaimed that he is the premier theater artist of my generation. And those are just the quotes about his work in theater. There are many more about his work in film. But without further ado, would you please join me in welcoming to the SCAD Savannah Film Festival and to the Hollywood Reporters Awards Chatter Podcast, Mr. George C. Wolfe. Mr. Wolfe, thank you so much for coming to Savannah. Glad to be here, glad to. Let's just start at the very beginning. Where were you born and raised, and what did your folks do for a living? I was born and raised in Frankfort, Kentucky. My mother was a teacher, and she later became a principal of the schools. I went to that school. She taught me. It was horrifying. My father worked for the state government, and that's that. For the first eight years of your life, the town in which you grew up was segregated. Yes. You have spoken about wanting to go see a movie, 101 Dalmatians, and not being able to do that because of your race. Well, my grandmother was this incredibly ferocious figure who would take on anybody. I telling remember her that I wanted to go see 101 Dalmatians at the Capitol Theater. I remember her calling and them telling her no. It was sort of startling and shocking and fascinating because it was the first time I'd ever see her come into contact with a no. So that was fascinating. But then it integrated, and then at one point, when I went to high school, I was editor of the high school newspaper, and I went and convinced the man who ran the Capitol Theater that I should go see movies for free so that I could write reviews. He said, but by the time the review comes out, the movies will be gone. I said, but it's cultivating a love of movies, and so that's what my column will do. It was my slight payback because then I got to go see movies for free. I love it. Let's talk, though, there's a moment you've described over the years. You were in fourth grade, and your, at that time, all black grade goes to an all white class. But that time, I think it was probably a little bit older, so I got about the PTA and the singing. Well, I think by that time, Frankfurt was integrated, but I still went to this black school which was connected to a university there. And the principal, this woman named Minnie J. Hitch, you told us, because we were going to be singing a song, and the lyrics were these truths we are declaring that all men are the same, that liberty is a torch burning with a steady flame. And she told us that when we got to the line that liberty is a torch burning with a steady flame, we should sing it with a ferocity and that we would shatter all racism in the room. So I literally remember these truths we are declaring that all men are the same, that liberty is a torch, you know. And then racism was gone. And racism was gone, exactly. They were all transformed. But it sort of was like so cluelessly wonderful for somebody to tell someone that young that if you say words and if you say them with power and conviction, you can change people. And that sense of potency of conviction and language was embedded in me, and it's never left. When did you see your first theatrical production that was done professionally? When I was 12 or 13, my mother went to do some advanced degree work at NYU, and she brought me a log, and it was one summer. And so I saw a production of West Side Story that was done at the State Theater at Lincoln Center. Then I saw a production of Hello Dolly with Cab Calloway and Pearl Bailey. And then I saw a production, as it turns out, from the Public Theater and Mobile Unit that Cleavon Little played Hamlet. Wow. And it was done in Washington Square Park. Wow. And some in respect, each of those three productions had, I think, a lasting impact on a kind of aesthetic. Right. And the thing interesting about the Mobile Unit, it was free. And so it was seeing the rawness of that energy of the audience was also very, it was very, very, really wonderful and really interesting and great. So the throughout rest of your time in high school, you were increasingly involved in theater and school. I don't know if it was specific, I think, was it writing, directing, acting? What were you focused on at that point? Acting and directing. And also it's very interesting because when I went to that high school, I stuttered really intensely. So this is one thing I was talking about earlier. So they decided that I was stupid because I stuttered. And so they called my mother over to the school to say, and they wanted to put me in remedial classes. And she says, are you crazy? No, that's not happening. And so I developed an Evita complex. So I said, by the time I leave this school, I will be running it. And so I was editor. I was drum major. I was the worst drum major since the dawn of time. I just, you know, I was editor of the newspaper, of the literary magazine. I just did all these stubs just to, you know, how dare you dismiss? I could tell. And I never heard the story about them calling my mother over, but I could tell I was being disregarded. Right. I sensed it. And I went, no. So you start college in Kentucky and then move to Pomona and California. What at that time? This is there. Oh, yeah. We're doing the whole thing. Exactly. What was the idea of going out to California? Was it just to have a change of scenery or did you were you already thinking maybe that's where you go if you want to be in show business? No, not at all. I had always dreamed of going to New York. I would I would watch, you know, TV shows that were set in New York, like the Dick Van Dyke Show. And I remember this is kind of neurotic and crazy. But I what I really I was obsessed with Disney and I wanted to have my own amusement park. But I wanted money. I knew you need a lot of money. So I decided that actors made a lot of money. This is when I was seven or eight. And so and I knew the actors starved. So when I was seven or eight, I used to practice not eating. So that when I went to New York, this is insanely true that, you know, that I so I could deal with it, you know. Well, little did I know one doesn't need to practice starvation. So you graduate from Pomona, go to L .A. for a little while to do theater, to do theater. OK, now theater, as I guess you quickly concluded, is primarily in New York. Well, yeah, I mean, at one point I did shows and I started to get some good reviews in the L .A. Times. And then I got called in. I don't even remember for to be a writer on a sitcom. And and I and I said something funny and they said, oh, he's quick. We're going to have to tie one hand behind his back. And I took that literally. And that's when I went I'm moving to New York. You know, I just was it was like time to go time to go time to go confront a whole bunch of other stuff and things I need to learn and get smarter about. Well, so, OK, you move. It's 1979. You're in your 20s. You moved to New York. Early 20s. Early 20s. Right, right, right. Very early. In fact, I was 19. I was just pretending to be 20. Something like that. Yeah. You moved to New York. There are a number of years then after moving there that were we can say lean. You got to put into practice not eating so much. You what said once quote, I came to New York to write and direct. And when I got here, a lot of my rage came out. Close quote. What do you mean by that? Well, it's so interesting because in L .A., it's you know, it's you know, there's more space. So so, you know, poverty and wealth are very much so separated. And then in New York, it's, you know, they're next door to each other. And the intensity of the inequity at the time, plus the fact that I had no real power over my existence, sort of magnified all of that. And I remember I remember seeing I remember at one time seeing this image of this of this woman in a fur coat. It was winter and eating chocolates and there was a subway vent and there was this homeless woman sitting there. And she had newspaper wrapped around her legs instead of boots. And she was like like crazy and was like and just seeing those two images next to each other. It's you know, it's the thing about New York. Every single time you step foot outside your front door, you see somebody who is worse off than you and you see somebody who is living a completely different life to you. So you have you get instant perspective whether you want it or not. So in those those leaner years, you are teaching a little bit. You're going to get your own MFA at NYU Tisch in dramatic writing, your... Dramatic writing and musical theater and a double MFA. And then there's a opportunity to have a work of yours produced for the first time at Playwrights' Horizon, which is a big deal. Playwrights? No. And how did that go? Well, it it was interesting. It was it was ultimately the best thing that could have happened for my career. I didn't direct it. I wrote the I wrote the book and I wrote the lyrics for it. And it and there were things that in the rehearsal process that I. And also, when I first came to New York, I said, I'm a writer and director, and they said, no, you can't do both. You have to focus in on one. I said, but I could do both. And they said, no, you can't. So I focused just on the writing. So then I there were things that were happening in the rehearsal room that I knew weren't right. But in the spirit of ra ra ra, getting along and being good guy and all this sort of stuff, I didn't object. And then I remember there was a tornado passing through New York City on the day my bad review came out. So I'm standing on the corner of 95th and Broadway with the winds blowing. I'm reading this hate review. And it was so very painful. But it was really interesting because it was very good for me because, you know, I went, oh, if this happens again, if I get another bad review. And of course, I've gotten bad reviews. But if it's going to be because it's my vision. Because it's I because I put every single thing I had on the line. Everybody, we're only in the room to make a very beautiful baby. And if we become good friends as a result of that, that's fine. But we all have a responsibility. The people that you're collaborating with to do their finest, best work. And you have to do your finest, best work. And it was interestingly enough, when I was at NYU, the piece that I wrote that bombed, I went, oh, this is going to be successful. And then there was this play that I wrote just for myself called The Colored Museum. And yeah, none of y 'all applauded when I said the title of the other thing, Paradise, did you? No. But that's what happened. It was the most interesting thing because I wrote one for success and I wrote one for myself. And that was the thing that succeeded. And so it was a very deeply, deeply, deeply valuable lesson. It was just like, and then eight weeks later, all those people who trashed, eight weeks, no, eight months were that it were eight weeks. Eight months later, all those people who trashed me were going, oh, where has he been? Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Oh, my God. And I'm so glad it happened that way. I'm so glad that the first piece was treated that way so that therefore it gave me a clarity and a sense of responsibility. And doing and doing work that I believed in and and that was that I believe mattered as opposed to something that was going to lead to success. It was just one of those slap you in the face and get smart, George. So you mentioned The Colored Museum, which let's just say, though, you know, you had you're coming off the rough review. How did you even get the opportunity to do The Colored Museum, which is going to as if you don't know, it was the first big success for Mr. Wolf. So how did that opportunity even come out of that? Well, it came out of that because I was at Playwrights Horizons because the guy named Lee Richardson, who was running a theater called Crossroads, said you're at Playwrights Horizons. And I don't think there's ever been a black playwright at Playwrights Horizons. Do you have something else that you've written? I said, well, funny you should ask. Dada, Colored Museum. And so that's how it happened. So there is there were they were both connected in a in a in a way that didn't seem so at the time, but was sort of brilliantly perfect. I want to ask you. So The Colored Museum is produced at Crossroads in 86 and then moved to the Public Theater in 87, which you'll notice the Public Theater, the great off Broadway institution, is going to come up quite a few times in this conversation. But for people who weren't around at that time or don't know or whatever, can you describe what The Colored Museum is about and what the controversy backlash that that provoked was? Because it was you you had to develop thick skin early on because it was not all fun and games in response to that one either. Well, but that was different. That was called pure unadulterated jealousy. So that was that was that was just, you know, I came from nowhere and all of a sudden I'm at the Public Theater. And Frank Rich wrote a wrote a review, a rave review, and said it's the kind of playwright who takes no prisoners. And people thought and that meant he kills people. The language kills them. And people thought that that meant I was soft. So it was just like that was just dumb cluelessness. That was very that was very easy to dismiss. And and, you know, and it was it was just jealousy. It was and that I, you know, I went, oh, my feelings are hurt. Oh, I'm over that. OK, go to hell. You know, it's just sort of like I didn't I didn't sweat about that. Well, tell us a little bit about the show, because this is your big success. First. Yeah, it was first. Well, it's it's interesting when I was at NYU. In the dramatic writing program, there are about three or four people writing plays about old black tap dancers, and they didn't happen to be old black or tap dancers. And so and I was just I was just I just thought about it. And I said, so somebody has figured out, has made a decision or dynamics have been created so that people have decided what black is. And I'm going, I'm black, I'm black my entire life. And I view it as this ever changing, complicated, insane, brilliant, amazing thing. So it was an effort to shatter, shatter any preconceived notions that I thought were going to stand in the way of what I wanted to create. So I wrote this play, which was eight exhibits set inside a museum. So I wanted to shatter all the perception, any perceptions that were in my head. So it's to liberate me to go in any direction that I wanted it to. And that's what happened. And it became this and it became this very successful show. It played, I think, for I think for 10 months at the Public Theater. Then it went to the Royal Court in London. Then it toured all around. And now it's it's high schools do it now and stuff, which is great. So it's in. And then as a result of it, then I started getting interesting from that. I went from, you know, being completely flat broke to then I met the kids of studios. I got Mike Nichols wanted me to write a movie for him. Robert Altman wanted me to write movies. So all of a sudden, you know, these job opportunities happened. But it wasn't for many years that you actually went into film. In the meantime, you were kind of seizing this interest in the theater, this opportunity now in theater. There was a person who is legendary by the name of Joseph Papp, who founded and ran the public, who took a great interest in you and, you know, brought you in there. And and we can say, you know, in addition to producing the colored museum, right. Named you one of three resident directors there offered to have a producing entity within the public for you. This was a big champion to have. He then passes away in 1991. He gets succeeded by a lady who was there for only 18 months. And then in August 1993, this institution of the sort of first thing that comes to mind when you think, at least for me, off Broadway comes looking for a new director. How did you become aware that there was interest in you for that position? And was it was that job, which you then spoiler alert, got and held for the next 12 years? Was it what you thought it would be? Nothing is ever what you think is going to be. But that's the point of the journey. It was actually it was I was I directed a Broadway show called Jealous Last Jab. And then I was then offered Angels in America. And and then I was in the middle of directing a seven hour play. And then they called up my lawyer and said, we want to talk to George about running the public theater. And I went, well, I'm kind of busy right now. Can they come back after? And they said no. And so they wanted to make a decision. So when I was in rehearsal, it was announced that I was running the public theater. It was I loved the thing which I loved. I loved, loved about running the public theater was giving artists money, giving artists money and spaces where they could go do work. It was that, you know, because I after after Jelly, I went, oh, this is hard. Surviving Broadway and dealing with all of these all of the dynamics and the money and the audiences and all of that stuff. This is really, really hard. And you have to be really, really tough. And so I knew all these artists who were really gifted, incredibly gifted people, but maybe weren't as tough. Can we can I just mention a few? Because these are shows that were given a spotlight by you in those years, which, in fact, several of them were just revived in the last couple of years. So decades later, people are, you know, coming back to them. But let's note, Twilight, Los Angeles, 1992. This was a dear, dear, very Smith and important show there. That was 1994. We had Top Dog Underdog, Suzan -Laurie Parks wins the Pulitzer for that 19 excuse me, 2002. Take me out again. Just revive. So these are the kinds of people who were talking about where you can. And this the public was not particularly known for its being inclusive prior to your tenure. Well, I'd say it was I think probably yes. I think it's also a place that gave us, you know, for colored girls and it's also a place that gave us for short eyes. So I'm so I would I wouldn't totally agree with that. And also these were very smart artists and these were tough artists. But there were, you know, it's just you people when you're beginning, you need a place to play, which means you need a place to fail so that you can get smarter. Like I had with Playwrights Horizons, you need you need to to do the work and not feel the pressure of it being the biggest hit in the world because you're growing and you're learning and you're getting smarter and you're getting tougher and you're learning more savvy. Just like the things that I allowed on the first production that was done, I didn't allow on the second one. And so you get, you know, so you're growing, you're growing all these muscles. It's not just your talent muscles. It's your your ability to defend yourself and to protect your work and to go, I disagree with that. And, you know, I remember one time there was a writer who was doing a play and a couple of things got really wonky at rehearsals. And I said, well, why didn't you speak up? He said, well, I was just scared that I was actually doing a play at the public theater and somebody was going to discover I didn't know what the hell I was doing and throw me out. And it's that fear you have to get. You have to realize that fear and doubt and other stuff, all that stuff is a part of growing and you have to have permission to grow. And so that's that's what I took on very much so, which is creating a space that was there. I wanted the I wanted the audiences and the artists there. I wanted it to look like the subway at rush hour in New York. I wanted to have all kinds of people there. So that was the thing that I loved after a while. It became very, very clear to me that as much as I was creating spaces for other artists, it was very challenging to be one. And while being in charge. Well, let's go back to, again, what you were doing when you got that opportunity to go there, because this was the beginning. While you're creating these opportunities for people off Broadway, you were making your first inroads on Broadway. As you mentioned, Jelly's Last Jam, 1992, you co -wrote and directed this about Jelly Roll Morton and the birth of jazz. Your first Broadway show musical with Gregory Hines and small role the first time you're working with Savion Glover. And this gets 11 Tony nominations, wins three and sort of leads to Angels in America. Now, this is it's been looked back at. I think the New York Times looked at it as the greatest show on Broadway of the last 30 years. It's an all timer, obviously, but you first saw it as a spectator in Los Angeles. It started at the Mark Tabor Forum. There doesn't sound like there was even a thought in your head that you might ever have anything to do with this. How did that change? Well, Jelly had opened up and I worked with a producer named Margo Lion, who passed away, who was a very dear friend of mine. And everybody, you know, and there were some changes that were going to be made from the Tabor to when it moved to Broadway. And she brought my name up and Tony Kushner and someone called me up and said, Tony Kushner wants to come and talk to you. I said, OK. And he came over and he talked and I had never read the play. I had only seen it. So I talked to him about it and just gave him my observations.
If Kari Lake Wins a Senate Seat THIS Would Be Her Top Priority
"And one of the things they've flipped the script on Carrie, which I want to get your take. Carrie's running for U .S. Senate, by the way, in Arizona. I'm sorry I should have mentioned that. assume I a lot of you know, but Carrie Lee, Carrie with a K, K -A -R -I. Great candidate. This is an opportunity right here. One of my priorities and a lot of Republicans I talk to and good conservatives is a swamp house cleaning, especially at the law enforcement and intel community. I don't deny there are some decent people left, some whistleblowers I know have told me that, that there are a lot of people there who are great guys and women. They're out there investigating bank robberies in the Arkansas office and the FBI. They have nothing to do with any of this. Matter of fact, most of them love Trump. There are people at the top, however, Kerry. The FBI and DOJ, you know, have been involved in a number of conspiracy devastating facts, not theories. So if you were elected to the US Senate, can we be assured that this is going to be one of your priorities too? Because I know you can't stand these people as much as our audience can. Yeah. It's a top priority. We have to. Our federal government has been weaponized and turned on we, the people. I mean, this is the tyranny that our founding fathers warned us about. And maybe, you know, nobody saw that that's what the tyrants would be now. Here we are, you know, after the Revolutionary War. And we are dealing with basically a push toward going back to a globalist running the show. You know, they freed us from the globalist King George, and now we're facing globalism taking over and Americanism being gone. And so this is battle what the is. We have to go after the bureaucrats and the bureaucratic administrative state and our federal government. We're watching what they're doing to President Trump, and they're doing it to a whole lot of other people as well. And I think we've got to do a major house cleaning and I'm talking shrink these departments down if we to have starve them of the money in order to get some of these crooked people out. And the good thing is, if we can find silver the lining, Dan, is we're starting to see who's who is as much of a struggle as this is as much. It's dark. It's not fun. It's
Kari Lake's "Road to Damascus" Moment
"It's sad. I see it now. We hate it. The Kerry, I gotta tell you, that's what I told you at Mar -a Lago, we're talking to Kerry Lake, run for US Senate in Arizona. This is why we just don't do guessing, because I just hate politicians. I just do. They always lie to me, they come on the show, they say some crap. They had one guy I run it for Congress, he got elected, a friend asked me, seemed like a decent guy. He goes there and he votes against Jim Jordan, because he wanted assaulting. I'm like, I'm done. But I've known you for a while. You strike me as a very candid person. I want to bring something up, because I think it'll help you and me both. Every time I mention your name, someone fires back. It's usually from primary opponent. I get it, but still, I'd like you to address it. They say, well, she was in the media, don't I trust her, she could be a lib. I'm not your defender, you don't need it, you can do it yourself. But my take back to them has always been, they make the best conservatives. If they're running as conservatives, they obviously had some road to Damascus moment where they're like, holy crap, these people really suck. So if you would address that, I'd really appreciate it. I'd be happy to, and I have many times before. You know, I talk about growing up an hour away from President Reagan in his hometown, my hometown in his an hour away, obviously a few decades apart, Dan, but he was my original childhood hero. And he's the reason I registered as a Republican when I turned 18. But when I was a mother, first became a mother, I had two babies back to back. And that's all when the wars started and I looked at George W. Bush and I said, gosh, our Republican party has just become a party that wants to start endless wars. And it was only because of that when McCain ran and, of course, had covered him by then a couple of a couple of decades. And I knew this wasn't going to be the guy to end these endless wars. And so that's why I took a chance on an outsider. And obviously we didn't have a lot of good choices. And he turned out to be a nightmare, an absolute nightmare. But I have always been a fair and honest journalist. I think you you ask people I've interviewed, I had a 30 year career, 27 years covering Arizona. And I don't know many people who walk away from their dream job. I walked away from a seven figure contract, walked away from my dream job. Number one in the ratings on a roll, had been number one for 22 years, by the way, at the Fox station. And I walked away from all of that because I looked at journalism and realized it had become nothing more than propaganda. And this was during COVID. And I don't know many people who would have the courage to walk away from that kind of money, that kind of a career like I did. And I did that because I care more about our First Amendment, our Constitution, and our country. And I'm not willing to sacrifice my reputation, use my voice and my heart to spread lies.

Visit LegacyPMInvestments .com. That's LegacyPMInvestments .com. Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. Did you ever see the movie The Blob starring Steve McQueen? The blood curdling threat of The Blob. Well, way back when, Eric had a small part in that film, but they had to cut his seed because The Blob was supposed to eat him. But he kept spitting him out. Oh, the whole thing was just a disaster. Anyway, here's the guy who's not always that easy to digest. Eric Metaxas! Hey there, folks. In case you were not aware, Albin Sadar has written a book and the title is Obvious. No, really, it's obvious. Albin, could you back me up on this? The title is Obvious. Yeah, I'm holding a copy of the book right here, and it says Obvious, so it must be Obvious. Obviously, the title is literally Obvious. Yeah. If you read the book, if you see the cover of the book, the title is Obvious. Who's on first? Literally, who? His name is who? Okay, so in the book, every chapter is super short, and you say these things that are Obvious, but that need to be restated. By the way, you've got blurbs from everybody. You have a forward by the great author, Eric Metaxas. I don't know how you got him. I don't even know. Is he still living? I always confuse him with James Michener. I'm sorry. But anyway, on the back of the book, you have a quote from George Orwell, and it says, We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men. If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear. In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act. So this book is filled with truth. Every chapter is the statement of some obvious truth, which needs restating. So what which one should we focus on? How about the one the title? What is it? Who made you boss? Yeah. Who died? Who died and made you boss. And by the way, that George Orwell quote, he says, It's obvious is the first duty of intelligent men. I couldn't find any in my sphere of influence, so I just wrote it myself. So there you go. I hear you. I hear you. But the chapter. Yeah, I did want to focus on is is the one called Who Died and Made You Boss. I got to explain that actually the title is supposed to be in quotes, but it's not. The editor left it out, but it's in quote. It would be in quotes is because when we were children in the playground, if you're playing a game, a tag or something, then suddenly somebody changed the rules so that they could win the game. Somebody in our group would always say, Who died and made you boss? And of course, people. Yeah. Yeah. Who did? But we're living in a world nowadays that people say you can't call that woman a woman. She's could be a this or that or they and and and we have to stand there and say, wait a minute, who died and made you boss? Who are you? Who comes up with these things? Why do we have to listen to you? I'm going to listen to, you know, the almighty, because I believe in him. And he said male, female. He didn't say they, them, theirs, whoever. So who died and made you boss? I explain all that and talk about some fun stuff with some fun cartoons. Some of this stuff. What I find funny about it is it is like it's stunningly obvious. And yet we don't see it. I mean, the idea that we would go along when somebody says you can't say this, you can't say that's good. And we go, OK, or oh, oh, yeah, yeah. Simply saying, excuse me, no, no, you don't get to decide five minutes ago that there are 37 genders. I don't know who you think you are, but you don't get to decide that this simple little pushback of that, of stating the obvious that you don't you don't have authority over me. I answer to God and sorry, but I don't I don't need to listen to you. That's a simple truth, but we need to restate it. And obviously you restate it in the book titled Obvious. What do you want to say more about that? Well, I want to mention other things that that are obvious. What I begin with the chapters called Basically God Exists. And I talk about how to me it's obvious that God exists. I get one of my favorite little examples is in there and I end with the stolen election because to me that was so obvious. I'm sitting there saying, doesn't anybody else see this? What I love is that I got a I got a meme in here or a graphic in here from the Babylon Bee. They gave me permission to use it. And the title is it's one of their articles says White House announces all conspiracy theories are true, except for the one about the Biden stealing the 2020 election. And I thought, say, great. They nailed it because I had a couple I had a cartoon that said basically the same thing. But then when I saw it in the Babylon Bee, I said, I think they're going to say it better than I do. Now, I have a bunch of little cartoon characters in there and a lot of the artwork is my own. I must admit. And if you think the cartoon is of me, it's actually not. It's of Simon de Hundert, who is my alter ego that I write with at American Thinker sometimes because I've written an American thing. This stream looks a lot like you, Alvin. I'm just I'm just here to I'm just being honest. I'm just stating the obvious that Simon de Hundert, because there are these cute little cartoons that you have done in here. And it looks like it could be you. I'm just saying it could be. I'm not saying it is. Look, I'm not going to go out on a limb. I'm not going to swear in a Bible or take a polygraph. I'm just saying that's my opinion. It could be you. Yeah. Or not. Too much. Yes. Too much hair. I don't want to offend anybody. And only four fingers. There's a lot of funny stuff in the book. For example, there's a little cartoon here. I want to make sure I read this one because this is I like this one particularly. But it's a little cute, cute. It's it's it's your little drawing of the guy who could be you. But the quote says if Hitler were alive today with the left, call him Trump 2 .0. That's very clever and loaded, loaded with gems like that. It's also loaded with a lot of serious stuff. Oh, oh, my goodness. Yeah. One of my favorite things and one of my favorite chapters is and this is like a little parable. I tell is, is I draw a picture of a guy stealing a television set and the little parables about the stolen TV. A guy comes home. He goes into his living room. Somebody stolen his TV. So he runs next door to his neighbor and he says, hey, did you see anything? Somebody stole my TV. But while he's running over to his neighbor's house, he looks through his neighbor's window and he sees his TV on his neighbor's wall. So he grabs the beat cop. There's a policeman coming down the street. He says to the policeman, look, we have to go in this. My neighbor stole my TV. And the policeman knocks on the door. Did you steal his TV? And the guy says, no, I didn't steal his TV. And I said, policeman, let's go in and look. I'll show it to you. It's right there on the wall. The guy says, no, I'm not going to let you in here because I'm telling you right now, I did not steal that guy's TV. And the policeman looks at the other guy who accused the neighbor and he says to him like, well, that's good enough for me. If he says he didn't do it, then he didn't do it. So when the left tells you they didn't steal the 2020 election, that should be good enough for all of us. They didn't spend four years looking into Trump. You and I know, I mean, this is a horrible thing when you know something is true and people say, oh, no, no, no, no, it's not true. Or even worse when they say, well, you can't even talk about that. When you tell me I can't talk about something, that's when I get mad because patriots have died. Patriots have died so that we could be free and we could speak our minds in this country. You don't even have to be right. So it's one thing to say, oh, you're wrong. It's nothing to say, oh, you can't talk about that. We need to be just to speak the truth, to state the obvious, which you do in every chapter of this book is to be doing spiritual warfare. This is how we fight back by stating the obvious. And the fact that the election was stolen, not only is that true, but it should make everyone in America furious because what could be more despicable than people stealing an election from the American people, not from Donald Trump, from the American people? And so you have the guts in this book to talk about that. It does the crazy thing out. And again, this is the whole point of the book is like, you don't need to be some kind of a genius to figure out that it was stolen like it is obvious. That's why the title of the book is obvious, because everything you talk about is obvious. You're not making some arcane argument that maybe no, you know, for quacks like a duck. I'm sorry, but it's probably a duck. Yeah, yeah, exactly. That example after the book had come out, I said, oh, I wish I would have used the example of the duck, you know, walks like a duck, waddles like a duck, has feathers like the duck, goes to the bathroom like the duck, hangs out with other ducks. It's most likely a duck. Okay. And when the election was stolen, it was the New York Times that had to declare Biden the winner after like three days of a how come all this stuff coming in. Okay. I came up with probably that day. I came up with a dozen things that said this proves it. It was stolen. Yeah. Ladies and gentlemen, the book is obvious.

A highlight from Larry Taunton
"Ladies and gentlemen, we all know that one plus one is two, and two plus two is four, and 4 ,782 plus 4 ,782 is 9 ,564. But did you know that there's a guy so smart, he can do all those calculations in his head. Well, at least maybe the first two. Please welcome your whiz kid of the airwaves, Eric Metaxas. Folks, welcome to the program. We have our friend Larry Taunton, LarryAlexTaunton .com. Larry Taunton, welcome. How are you? Well, I think I'm okay. A lot of tough stuff going on in the world. I want to talk to you about Israel. Why don't we start there? What's on your mind? Well, I'm growing increasingly alarmed by the pro -Palestinian, which is to say the pro -Hamas gatherings that we're seeing throughout the Western world. We've seen them in Germany. We've seen them in France. We've seen them in Spain. We're seeing them in the UK. We're seeing them in the United States, in DC, a massive one in DC. This, I hope, is revealing to many people. Well, there's a variety of things that I hope is waking them up to. One is bad immigration policies. I mean, we've allowed the orcs into the shire, so to speak. And then, obviously, the potential terrorists who are living in our midst and anti -Semitism, the growth. I've seen that you've been tweeting about this a little bit in reference to your excellent bestselling book, Bonhoeffer. What we're seeing, brother, is some frightening stuff. Well, a couple of things. First of all, let's be clear. As with the Antifa protests, as with the BLM protests, this is kind of organized. In other words, this is not grassroots. I hope people are coming out. There are people, I don't know if it's George Soros, I don't know who is behind it, but there is no doubt that they are organized to do this. Most of these people don't have actual jobs. They're single and stupid and foolish, and they are easily manipulated to, hey, let's come out. So part of that is the theater. It's the PR war. And it seems to me that the radical left excels in this, that they can get thousands of people out to give the impression that, oh, there are a lot of people that hate Israel. And you kind of think, well, there are a lot of crazy people who have that view. But part of me wants to say that most people understand that Israel has a right to exist, that what happened on October 7th is evil and needs to be dealt with. So on the one hand, yes, the orcs have let into the shire, but on the other hand, there are people trying to manipulate public perception and using these rallies to do that. Yeah, I agree wholeheartedly with that, Eric. I think the comparison to the Antifa and BLM riots, really, they were much more than rallies, much more than protests, is a good one because that's what we're seeing here. But we're seeing it in much larger numbers, it appears to me. And this is directly connected with terrorism. I mean, at least BLM could pretend, have the veneer that theirs was respectable, peaceful about civil rights. When we're talking about groups of people gathering in support of the Palestinians in a war that was launched by Hamas, we're talking about direct support for an organization that is very friendly with a terrorist regime in Iran, with the Taliban, and with Hezbollah. So we are talking about outright terrorism, and that there are people, respectable people, people I like, even some conservatives, who seem to be on that side of the argument, I find distressing. When you say conservatives, I mean, who are we talking about? I'm amazed. Well, I'll not out friends of mine here. I'll just simply say that there are not necessarily even big accounts. I'm just talking about people that you see on social media, and with whom I have conversations, who are thoughtful conservative people who would read your books and mine, and yet seem to be falling on that side of the issue. And I find myself continually saying to them, what is it that you're seeing that is leading you to this conclusion? And you know what their response is? They will refer to a video or something to that effect that I'm almost certain is fake. I'm seeing a lot of stuff that is being put out, I'm almost certain is being put out by Hamas shows that babies that are supposedly babies that have been targeted, not just merely injured incidentally by the Israelis, but targeted by the Israelis. Okay, look, common sense tells you, ladies and gentlemen, that Israel doesn't do that. That's a lie. That is an absolute lie. Israel doesn't do that. The United States doesn't do that. If anyone ever does that, they're prosecuted, they're put in jail. So you want to talk about Abu Ghraib or whatever, we go after that kind of thing. We don't promote that kind of thing. And so you're right, Larry, that that this is being put out to fool what we used to call bleeding heart liberals into, oh, look what Israel is doing. But the fact is, this is what Hamas does. This is what ISIS does. This is what they do. This is who they are. And also, I mean, let's be clear. They are liars. They don't have a problem with lying. They don't have a problem with murdering and mutilating and raping. And so they will say anything and do anything. And the left seems to fall for it over and over again. I mean, I'm going back decades. It's amazing to me how the left falls for this stuff, because we would all condemn atrocities. There's no doubt about that, that this if were true, we would be the first ones to condemn it. But these atrocities are happening on the other side and people are acting like, well, they're both guilty. Not in this case, folks. We've got to be very clear. We've got to have moral clarity.

A highlight from 15 Authors of Titles on THR's List of the 100 Greatest Film Books of All Time
"Please welcome to the stage President and CEO of the American Film Institute, Bob Guzzale. Phone rings. It's Scott Feinberg from The Hollywood Reporter. He has an idea. And he's thinking about celebrating the 100 greatest film books of all time. I am immediately offended because top 100 movie lists are the AFI's real estate. But I did not say that to him. And the truth is I was just jealous because it was such and is such a good idea. And I thought anything AFI can do to help shine a proper light on this imperative work, well, we're in. But I did say to Scott, it's got to be A plus. It's no fake in this one. You have to have the most informed, the smartest jury. And he said, I got this. And he did. And today is a moment to celebrate that effort and the inspired writers who have brought history to life. Here to take his bow and to moderate the discussion, the executive editor of The Hollywood Reporter, Scott Feinberg. Now Scott is going to bring out the honorees today, but he has given me the gift of introducing you to the first. For he is the founder of the American Film Institute. He was there in the White House Rose Garden when President Lyndon Johnson first announced the creation of AFI. He was there to write the very words that define the Institute's national mandate. And he was there to lead the organization through its early years. And it was then that he planted the seeds for the AFI Center for Film Studies, now the AFI Conservatory. And it was then that he instituted the Harold Lloyd Master Seminar Series at AFI, so named because the seminar's first guest was Harold Lloyd. Across 50 years, these seminars have proved a rich historical record of the art form and have inspired several books on THR's 100 greatest list, including two of his. Conversations with the great movie makers of Hollywood's golden age and conversations at the American Film Institute with the great movie makers the next generation. Please welcome George Stevens Jr. Welcome George Stevens Jr. and we are excited to hear from you in just a second.

Please welcome Nancy Griffin and Kim Masters. Next up, he is, as you will guess from the title, his name. He is from 1969 and for many years thereafter the author of Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide. Please welcome Leonard Maltin. Here we are. Welcome. Next, we have the author of 1998's The Last Mogul, Lou Osterman, MCA and the Hidden History of Hollywood, Dennis McDougall. Next, we have the author of 1977's The Making of the Wizard of Oz, Movie Magic and Studio Power in the Prime of MGM and the Miracle of Production number 1060. Please welcome Algene Harmetz.

Please welcome Michael Tolkien. From 1989, the author of Goldwyn, a Biography, A. Scott Berg. She is the author of the 2006 book A Killer Life, How an Independent Film Producer Survives Deals and Disasters in Hollywood and Beyond, Christine Vachon. We're going to give an extra warm welcome to this gentleman because it is his birthday. Please join us in welcoming George Harrell's Hollywood Glamour Portraits 1925 to 1992 author from 2013, Mark A. Vieira. From 1999, the book Conversations with Wilder, the author Cameron Crowe. Ladies and gentlemen, take it in because this has never been seen before and I don't know if anyone will be lucky enough to gather this amazing group again in one place. I'm so grateful to all of you for making the time to be here. Many of you came from great distances and congratulations on your work being on this list chosen by 322 people from the industry. We're talking about filmmakers like Steven Spielberg, executives, David Zaslav and many others, authors including just about everybody up here plus many others, academics. You can see the whole list online but the point is it is a cross -section of the business. There have been versions of this list that were chosen by film critics. There have been versions by other constituencies but this reflects the taste of our global film community. So thank you again for being here and I want to also just quickly thank Bob Guzzale, Julie Goodwin and everyone at AFI not only for going through all the efforts to make today possible but also for their other lists that Bob referenced because were it not for the original AFI Top 100 list. I don't think I would be here in a career as a film journalist because that really made me fall in love with the movies in the way that I hope this list inspires many other people to check out these books and the others on the list. So thank you to them and to the folks at The Hollywood Reporter for supporting the list and Terry Press for helping us put everything together and all of you for being here. So the way this is going to work is we are going to go down this line a few minutes with each author about the origin and impact and revelations of their book and then we are going to have a looser group conversation afterwards but we're going to begin with Mr. Stevens Jr. These two books that you wrote drawing from the seminars that Bob referenced are you know just fascinating looks at generations of filmmakers who have spoken to students at the AFI, what you know they've shared about their lives, their careers, tips for filmmaking. I wonder if you can just talk about how early on, well again just a little bit more actually about how those seminars started because you were there at the beginning and when it occurred to you that they might make good books.

You're Getting a Lot of Bum Information About Tuesday's Election
"An political conservative. He ran in the Republican primaries against the conservative challenging The Republican establishment and ruling class The The establishment Republican and ruling class has not gone away and they never will. They get too much power they get too much attention they get too much money. Mitch McConnell is a throwback to the Gerald Ford era. Chris Christie is a throwback to the George Bush era and before Chris Sununu is a throwback to the George Bush era. Sununu is the governor of New Hampshire he's elected been there. His case is unique his daddy was elected there. Chris Sununu excuse me Chris Christie got elected first time around because the governor was corrupt, unethical, and adulterer and extremely unpopular. So you need these special circumstances they're not examples to emulate they're one -offs. the red It has but Reagan's an example to emulate and why don't look we ever at his campaigns and why don't we ever look at how he campaigned. What the issues were. Oh markets all changed no it hasn't changed hasn't changed at all. Of course issues change and move and somewhere but the fundamentals are the same. Let's take abortion. Abortion. And I'll be very blunt with you because Democrat Party billionaires and interest groups are willing to spend ten times more than Republican billionaires and interest groups on explaining the issue. So the Democrat Party defines the Republican candidate lies about the Republican candidate lies about their position and so when the Democrat Party is actually on this issue. Nobody believes that a baby should be aborted with partial abortion right up to the last second of birth. Nobody
What Can We Learn From Bobby Knight?
"Of the legends of college basketball passed away. I grew up watching this guy coach. You know, I, I remember in America where alpha men were more loved than hated. Not everyone loved them. But I think about Rush Limbaugh. I think about obviously Donald Trump. Here's a thought crime for you. Beautiful, big, great countries are founded and protected and made better by aggressive men. You cannot have a nation without strong men. Bobby Knight is not everyone's cup of tea. He had a spine. He had other anatomy too. He was a real salty person in a very good way. Bobby Knight, he would last, I think, an afternoon as a coach in today's time. Diversity, equity, inclusion. Go run sprints. Transgender, you're a moron. He would be not very tolerant of this, but Bobby Knight pursued excellence. He was a hard nosed Midwest. He was America first. We'll talk about that. Coach who pushed his players to the highest possible level. Bobby Knight was hated by the media for years. Bobby Knight probably pushed the boundaries a little bit too much. Threw a chair on the court. Play cut 137. Two shot technical against the bench and against Bob Knight. Steve Reid, an excellent free throw shooter, will have the honor of shooting the technicals. Look at here. Look at here. Bobby Knight is through his chair. Clear across the free throw lane. And I think he picked up another team. Bobby Knight also hit a kid. Shouldn't have done that. Very similar to George Patton. But Bobby Knight and Patton had a very similar way of leading. Lead, follow or get out of the way. Bobby Knight, I think, is the second winningest coach of all time. Now it's Mike Krzyzewski. And Bobby Knight wanted to win. We as a conservative movement could learn a lot from Bobby Knight. He did what was necessary. He was tough. He was intense. He was honest. He was the best that the Midwest had to offer. Honestly, I'm proud to have been raised in the region of Bobby Knight. You wouldn't want to face him and players wanted to play for him. And you better believe Bobby Knight had a temper. He yelled. He did some bad stuff at times. But on the other hand, his players had a 96 % graduation rate. He believed that if a player couldn't show up to class and get good grades, they didn't belong on his team. He did not pander to the lowest common denominator of this black pandering crap that now exists in NCAA sports. Oh, I'm studying physical fitness. Yeah, sure. Bobby Knight's like, no, you're gonna get a degree because you're probably not gonna be an NBA player. He loved his players and his players loved him. He was very well known for doing anonymous acts of charity. He never had a single NCAA violation, not a recruiting scandal like Jim Harbaugh, this Jim Harbaugh thing. But Jim Harbaugh might as well just get in the headset of the guys in the Big Ten. Are we sure that Jim Harbaugh wasn't just like hacking into the radio frequencies? Leading the team for almost three decades and winning three NCAA titles. One of the hardest things for those of you that I love college basketball, not as much as college football, but I love March Madness. I don't really watch regular season. I think it's kind of a waste of time. March Madness is one of the most beautiful things that America has to offer as far as you could learn a lot psychologically and culturally to win three NCAA titles is unbelievable. That is so hard. You're lucky to win one. You're lucky to go to a Final Four. Bobby Knight dominated, dominated, and he was an America first patriot.

"TJ. How much did you learn and how much more already are you now than if you had gotten the job back then? Well, you learned so much through all those experiences, right? And I've worked for four really good head coaches that have all had a lot of success from Greg McDermott, Fred hoiberg, Lorenzo Roma and Steve pro and Ben fortunate that as an assistant, those guys all empowered me and gave me responsibility to learn through mistakes, whether it's game planning, breaking down films, scholar report recruiting, you name it, scheduling. And so when the job was available, back 6 years ago, I certainly wanted an opportunity because I felt like I knew Iowa state I had recruited a lot of guys that had come here over time. Just felt like I knew what it meant to be the coach at Iowa state. Both through success and through some failures and challenges. And so when it didn't happen, certainly disappointed because you just feel like, man, that was the opportunity of a lifetime. And you don't know if it's ever going to come again. Now, I was fortunate to be retained on staff with Steve proem. And so I stayed for the year. And then you just never know when things are going to happen that can change because I didn't know anything about South Dakota state when that opportunity presented itself. There were some relationships in between and the athletic director there Justin sell who's a really good friend of mine now still is had heard good things and we got together and it was just a fit. And so you go through that opportunity as a head coach, you go through the opportunities ahead coach at UNLV and through those 5 seasons. There's some good, there's some challenges. There's some big games. There are some games that you're grinding out. And so you go through all those opportunities, you learn more about yourself. You become a better coach. You learn how to manage and coach people better, put a staff together better. You learn what things work for you basketball wise. What can you teach? What's your personality, you know, how do you bring the best set of players? And so to answer your question directly, I'm much more prepared now having those additional experiences as a head coach. It doesn't mean we wouldn't have been able to be successful before, but I know now that with confidence and conviction based on those opportunities exactly what we need to do here and how fortunate am I to do it at a place where I spent all those years as an assistant, I know it so well. And just the people, the administration, the fans, the former players, it's my spot. It's home for my family. So you went to transfer portal. And you did a really good job of it. I don't think you even probably realized. Because again, the transfer portal is a little bit of a crash. Let's be honest. You can do all your due diligence, but especially for you, you probably hadn't recruited a lot of these guys. Maybe you and ov or some of them probably it's South Dakota state. You're probably there when these kids decide where they were going to go, whether it was brockington or Kyle sure, and ruina, you know, but, you know, the combination of those guys in a talented freshman and tyrese hunter is just that. I mean, he's super talented, committed a probe. You ended up keeping him in Wisconsin kid..

"Out here. It's swagger. But you know what? They need that, man. You need a point guard that's feeling yourself and out there with those dudes. They got athletes all around him. I like her cruise. So good choice it for. I do like her case that he's not for. He's not for, but then Mather and his. And he's a guy who's absolutely been on fire lately. Let me give you some numbers. He's averaging 18 and a half points of game, shooting 38% from three. 59 from the field, almost 7 boards a game. But in the last three games, almost 28 a game, 8 rebounds a game, shooting 61% from the field and almost 50% from three. He torched Illinois and the thing, the reason I've got him at number four is I just think when you look at him, what do they want in the NBA? You want wings that can make a play. He's more than that. I think he's more than a three and D guy. I think he came into the year as a three and D guy. I think now he's more athletic than people realize and he could put it on the floor now. What do you think about a comparison? I just am throwing this out here. Feel free to say this is terrible. Can you be like Mikhail bridges? Mikhail bridge is a lottery pick. Or do you think better than mcel bridges? Better offensively. Better offensively. Not as good defensively. But better offensively. I think he's going to be able to do more off the bounce to be honest. I think Mikhail was and he's gotten better. He's expanded his game and it helps when you've got Chris Paul and Devin Booker and ayton down low, right? Nobody's paying attention to you in the offensive end. I think Matthew and I'm trying to think who I have compared them to, but he is. He's a really good defender. He can really shoot it. He's got great positional size. He's smooth. He's athletic. And he's only getting better. So do you have an issue with me putting him at four? I got him four. I get to and I be a 5. I would need to look at who do you got like 6 7 8? Yeah, so 6, 7, 8 right now. A lot of people have Jalen durn at four. I do not. I don't see it. And I saw him a bunch last summer too and obviously Memphis is a train wreck right now. But I would take my right tonight, though. Well, it's a big one. It's a big one, no doubt. Jaden hart, Jaden hardy, who's playing with the G league ignite. Patrick Baldwin, who's playing in Milwaukee, he's 6 9 can shoot it from the perimeter, but hasn't really done it..

"All right, welcome to another episode of the Goodman and humor podcast. Some Jeff Goodman, he's rob homo and he's been running, man. You've been working. I'll give you, I'll give you credit. You can dry in here. Yeah, now 5 games since Tuesday. For Sunday, it was good though. I got to see a lot of good teams and some games. I got to give a shout out to Brandon God and I got to work with Brandon Moore. Whenever you're with him, he's been getting records, buzzer beater, Georgetown Syracuse, you know, Ohio State, Florida, from we're calling Gus guard now. Yeah, no doubt. Who would have thought that to do records game with Purdue Rutgers Purdue might see state? Well, both good games. No really good games. Really good games. You know, I was thinking during the NC state game, this was when Peru was down like ten. I was like, you know, the last three games I have now called for perdue, thinking they were going to lose density stay with the way they were playing. Rockers, north Texas. Boy. They're going to take me off the Peru games 'cause man they just haven't been playing very well in the games that I've seen. But yeah, kind of a weird week out east for them. They did not play. Didn't shoot it great. And I think they're shooting his match a lot of these small deficiencies that kind of caught up to get them at Rutgers. Well, everybody kind of thought. And you did even in the preseason two. Everybody was like, well, there are better shooting team than what they showed a year ago. And they are. They are, but they're still not a great shooting team. They do have collective. To me, that's TBD. I think they can be they weren't last year. I feel like they have been the coaches felt that they were a group that didn't shoot it as well as their abilities said they should. And they probably started a little bit above what they are this year. What they were shooting 44% in three. So some of those guys have kind of come back to earth. Their point guard play offensively and I know that that's your favorite term. That's my deal. It's my deal. I'm gonna hit you on it now. Yeah, Isaiah Thompson has kind of been a non factor. He just kind of been out there. The last couple games. Villanova, he's making big shots. I think teams are playing trivia on Williams and Zack eating straight up. And some of those looks that were coming from post traps aren't there. And as they're talking to a really good shooter, but he's not the biggest guard. You're going to see out there. He doesn't have great size. Eric Connor is more of a defensive player. He made a big three at Rutgers made a huge defensive play late against each state..

Let's go. Well, what would say this was an audacious parley? Stupendous. All right. Which one are you most excited about of all those $1 million picks? I love it all. I love the big one, and I think that the falcons beat in the cowboys. Dan Quinn coming in there, Matt Ryan, looking at it laughing and saying, I know this defense. You know it's going to be hilarious about that falcon's game. They're going to be a 20 to 7 in the third quarter. We're going to be texting each other. And then Matty ice is going to start doing. The stuff he does. We know this going in. We know he might hurt our feelings. I don't know if what your text chains are like with hench and with times, Danny Kelly, but all Bill and I text. It's just the name of the team and an exclamation mark. Like, we'll go falcons exhibition board. Tire texture. It's just team exclamation mark. And it's like, oh, something happened in that game..

It was more about how how this subject made me feel. I need to get that out and that is that is valid to a certain degree but how was just coming like this volcano at him. He was like he stopped.

Data me this one out for you. Because i wanna hear from jason and jarvis because there are a lot of conversations that are going on in hollywood about black men and and leading roles and the ability to star and the hard work that has to go into this. Both of you are esteemed actors in the space. What has it been like for you right to ascend in this journey of saying you know what i'm gonna come from x and get to. Why why is. I'm going to be a lead actor. A leading roles in a major major production right. What have been the bears and would have been the successes for you in this road. Tasting junko for jay schwartz there there. There's so many successes and so many failures and triumphs and and almost in in this industry in general When you start talking about people of color especially black men. We're we're only in. This is my opinion. We're only now starting to turn a corner where people will look past begin to look past the real world has contexts and the baggage that they bring with them and start to actually see in individual a man a talent. Or what have you. Yes you might have gotten a job. Beat because we're looking you know it's a visual medium film and television visual medium and to an extent things on the stage to if you want to tell an august wilson story you know we're going to cast black actors because we're trying to tell a framing But i think now when you see more black people but also black men in leading roles and especially in leading roles that aren't necessarily connected to to a A historical stereotype. It really validates a number of things invalidates first and foremost the individual who's in the role but it also validates the people behind the scenes who were saying for whatever reason whether it be monetary whether it be financial or whether it be cultural or whether it be political you know. Winds of shit are shifting but the change happens and when those individuals are in those roles they're able to flourish in show the breadth of their humanity in their discourse. And what it also does is. It gives validation to people who have not felt seeing in that way. And what i mean by that is we. There used to joke in horror films and everybody said yeah black person in. They're gonna die. Neither smart i i i i wanna die or are we going on. We're going to do the oak. We gonna wait today. The nass once you go. Oh he's gonna she's gonna make it. They got killed. You know in person. Or that's true. Dombi tommy fan on. Just die right. Slowly fade out of out of frame or hats.
