Kevin 'Votestradamus' McCullough Breaks Down Various Races
"Kevin, you were just making a point. Please continue. I want to break this down because in Virginia, New Jersey, you had two different approaches in which both states really had a Republican push. Jack chiarelli and Glen youngkin both outperformed what the polls were saying going into election day. The difference was in loudoun county in Virginia, the Democrats tried to stop the counting. They didn't really have a reason for it. They just said there were abnormal abnormalities. They needed to stop and check on whatever. They were going to start the next morning. His lawyers immediately said, nope, we're going to keep going. You're going to do this now. They took it to a judge, judge said, yep, you got to keep going. They kept going. Glenn youngkin was governor of Virginia the next morning. In New Jersey, Bergen county pulled the same thing that loudoun county did, only they were allowed to stop. And most people in Bergen county went to bed on election night thinking that Jack chiarelli had been elected governor. It was a big upset. I was one of them. I reported from the chiarelli campaign that night for different media groups. He had a significant lead in the state. The next morning, when Bergen county suddenly had the votes counted, there had been more than a 100,000 something to zero swing in just the one county. So here's my first caution from my calling yesterday. Anywhere you see this stuff trying to happen. If the RNC has not lawyered up and ready to take people to court, the minute that it gets tried, you're going to be in trouble in those races. But my hunch is that there's a lot more people watching out this year to make sure that we don't have those types of things happening, particularly in the Senate races in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Arizona and Nevada, which if we win those four, we win the Senate. Last thing I'll say on this, it is very, very important that no matter what race you think you're voting for, that you make sure that you take three to four people with you tomorrow
Allison Gill: Justice Is Coming for Trump
"You said many were worried the judge cannon and Donald could delay the DoJ classified documents investigation for months as it turns out the delay lasted 16 days. Happy Saturday, that was happy floppy. And I retweeted. Yeah. I have said this before Allison. We just had our mutual our shared hunk, Glen kirshner. On Friday. And I really do feel like justice is coming. And I don't know which front and maybe all of them and when, but it certainly is there is a lot, as you always point out, for all the people saying nothing's happening, nothing's happening. A lot's been happening. Yeah, quite particularly that the hammer that tis James brought down in 222 pages of a lawsuit against Trump and his crotch goblins. And I'm exceedingly excited about that one because that, honestly, I mean, if he gets indicted, yeah, he should be indicted. We need accountability. We need rule of law in this country. But you know, he'll get like three to 8 years, maybe, and because, you know, he doesn't have a criminal history, believe it or not, he doesn't have a rap sheet. And he probably won't go to jail, jail, he'll probably be on home confinement so he can continue to have a Secret Service. This New York attorney general Tisch James lawsuit is what will break him.

"Contract extension boy available at all target in Walmart. Right. It's an action figure with karate chop action. He's got it in his hand and he's pointing to the signature. Ricky Stenhouse junior is always somebody to look at when you come to these plate races as well. One win, two top 5s, three top tens on a poll. Average finish of 20.1, which is tenth best. We got an Austin Dillon now at number well, there is no number. He drives the number three. One win, three top 5s, 8 top tens, a poll average finish of 15.5 third best. And how about Kevin Harvick two wins of this racetrack 11 top 5, 16 top tens in a poll? Average finish of 18.057. He's a guy who won two races in a row heading into Watkins Glen. That hot streak is still going for. Maybe he can get another win. And the driver with more wins than anyone in all the land. Three wins at Daytona 11 top 5 is 12 top tens. His name is Denny Hamlin. I think I forgot that. Average finish of 16.5. And that's fourth best. Yes, yes, yes, boom. And a couple of other drivers we probably should mention who have done well of recent Bubba Wallace and Michael McDowell at Daytona. Yeah, when you look at Bubba Wallace, that's an interesting thing. He finished second, Daytona 500 this year. He finished second, the Daytona 500. And that 43 car, several years back when he was with Richard Petty motor sports. And now you know you look at things, he's kind of put together a track record, four top 5s, four top tens average finish of his career, 12.5 at Daytona. I think that's a good call. And of course, Michael McDowell, we've talked about him at length before. One the Daytona 500 last season to kind of etch his way into the playoffs for the first time in his career. And he's always a formidable threat. These plate races. Definitely now, we've got all those numbers. They're dancing around in our heads.

"Goes to the left. Some of it gets crossed up right here. You are in trouble. Look at that. There is nowhere to go. There is no evacuation route in turn three when you get to the top of the hill. Things get narrow, Kyle, and you can speak to it. I mean, you get caught up in somebody's mess, you have absolutely nowhere to go. Yeah, I think I'm the one that crossed up and took out Mark and everybody. So thanks for the memories there, back then. Everyone say it. But here's the deal. That is that is and Dale and I know it at the same time. It is like crashing in your driveway. Man, you've just blocked everything, but at the same time, that's where you have to make time. Because if you lose time coming up through there, from two to three up through the S's, then it shows up at the bus stop. It shows up at the end. And that's when you're just a setting up. They're going by you on both sides. So it's critical. And you, you do a great job and you can visually see who's making time and who's not making time. You see them carry that left front, you see them sideways, whatever it may be. But that is a critical part of the racetrack that always goes as far as the analysis of the racetrack. Always, people are like, yeah, up through the S's. No, up through the S is where you make your time on a qualifying lap where you make your time a lot of times during the day. Well, if you stop and think about it, so turn two is the first turn of the S's. Well, when you get that launch in that right hander and you start that run, you've got to almost be flawless and you got to get a good launch up at it too. You got to transition over into three and then ease into four and then go to the back straight away. Well, if you scrub off any speed, you just killed your backstretch speed and you killed the entry going into the inner loop. While at the same time, here's something I've been hearing this week with the loads of the cars. I mean, Randall just talked about shop limiters and the bump stops and all this. You hook that curving at the bottom of two and that car jets out on you. Next thing you know, you're crossed up and here we go with multi car pilots all that stuff. You've got to be laser precise going up to those S's. And if you get off course, you can hang it up. You're done. Yeah. You could be where all the action is this weekend with these new cars. I don't know how much of your life is spent taking phone calls Batman, but you've joined a call in show. Yes. I'm afraid you're up for another one. Greg, joining us here on NASCAR, America motor mouse, Greg, what do you have for Mike Bagley and the crew? Hey, guys. I'm a huge fan of the show. I'm from Tommy Stewart's hometown of Columbus, Indiana, and sort of a big supporter of Kevin Harvick. I just want everybody's thoughts on what's everybody thinking about Kevin Harvick when the championship this year. Batman answer that one. Everybody just calm down. Okay, let's talk. We actually win the championship three, three weeks ago. And then now we get somebody come onto the scene. Look, there's a lot of recent left to go. And I think Rodney's shoulder is summed up best this week when he said, you know, we can go here and we can win this race and next week, we may be out to lunch. And then the next week may be decent and there's no consistency. We'll get pockets of it. It was a surprise that they won this past weekend. Michigan just perfectly timed pitting and caution sequence for the four team. And they were able to take advantage of it, got the race pulled away. I think that perhaps maybe they're onto something. They said it started in Nashville, and they say that, well, we've not done a whole lot. Look, Ronnie's shoulders is roddy Childers. We all know how Rodney is. I think Rodney has found something maybe. We'll see only time will tell. But if they don't put it together at Watkins Glen or Daytona, I'm not that worried, but show me what you got at Darlington. Show me what you got at Kansas and, you know, those mile and a half tracks like that coming up. And we'll see if they got a championship worthy effort. But right now, I'm confident about the four. I'm not sold that it's going to all manifest itself into a championship. I'm getting close to being pretty sold. And I think you said on Monday show DJ that right now you've got the four in your championship four. I only have three of the four, but I'm back here. He's one of them. I've said that the 9, the 11, and now the four are the only three that I think that I say can maneuver their way through. And I think the playoffs you may disagree with me, but I think because of everything that you are saying and what Rodney church is saying about being on it for a week or two and then all of a sudden things go away. What you can't have that when you get in the playoffs unless you're going to win a race in each one of the rounds. So I think this may be the most pressure pack that we've seen. Oh, it's going to be pressure pack. Those are not about it. I just can't get a gauge and maybe you guys can. But I'm not being able to get a gauge on consistency. Like Joe and nagano with Darlington. He shows up. He was running second, moved by to win the race, comes back, can't find him the following weekend of Kansas. Then the next week he'll be decent, then they'll miss it by a little bit. A lot of these crew chiefs are still guessing mode, like they're still, yeah, they got simulation, but they're still, I don't want to say necessarily trying things, but they're not necessarily sure with confidence until they can go back to some of these racetracks for the second time and going through those notes and all that stuff. I think it's possible that the 14 can get on a roll, but I've been bitten already several times this year with teams that I thought that were going to get on a rolling continue and they just don't they fizzle out for one for one reason or another. And let's not forget pit road speeding. Penalties and pit road issues and all that stuff.

"Head this weekend race at Watkins Glen James, you're on with Randall Burnett on NASCAR America motor mouse. What you got? Hey, Randall. I wanted to ask, after winning at both road America and Indianapolis, what have you and Tyler learned going into Watkins Glen this weekend as well as the Charlotte roval for the playoffs? Well, definitely, you know, like I said, we've been looking at the setup stuff. It is going to be probably a little bit different than what we've had. The tires, you know, the same. So we've got all those notes to go off of. But just this road course is so much higher speed, you know, we see some good speeds at koto as well, but we also see some really, really low speeds of coda. So, you know, it's just a little bit different animal. And it's always been that way, even when we were just racing at Watkins Glen and Sonoma, there are two completely different animals. So we've been working on the braking zones. And getting through the bus stop good and over the bumps there. So Randall, two wins in the last couple of months here. One of those wins came after you guys had dealt with a lot of noise going on with Tyler Reddick leaving after 2023. I know that the team obviously has done a great job of just being able to block out distractions and focus on the job at hand. I'm wondering if you can kind of speak to that because I know the number 18 people night and I realized you guys have kind of been tight knit. You guys have been together for a while more than just this season. Can you speak about how you guys have sort of worked through all that noise that maybe you've had the last couple of months and still be able to win with Tyler Redick? Yeah, no, no, like you said we are a pretty tight knit group most all the guys that are on the team or something like a couple that haven't been with them the whole time on the cup side and some of us have been with them since the extended days. So we've all been pretty tight worked together for several years now and you know so it was a little bit of a distraction at first. But I think that when an indie kind of showed where our teams at and what we're capable of and that's focused on giving Tyler the best product we can every weekend and Colin good races and giving them put good pit stops and putting them in position. And that's what we're going to continue to do. That's the best way to showcase all the talent on this 8 car that we got. I just Tyler, but all of our guides as well. We were having a discussion here earlier about being at this point in time in the season, two races to go before the playoffs and how people race. And Dale and I were reminiscing about when you just went to the racetrack and tried to beat everybody and tried to win everything. And that was it. But you guys, it's different. And explain if you can walk me through it, maybe a little bit as a crew chief. You know, you've got guys out here that are already in the playoffs. You've got guys that are trying to get in the playoffs. You've got guys that are trying to get stage points. There's so many different agendas when they drop the green flag as a crew chief. How do you wrap your brain around that and keep up with that plus call your race and put yourself in position to win the race? The best you can. Well, the first thing you do before you get on the pit box is take some goodies and get your headache on after thinking about all that. But no, we've kind of been on both sides of it. This year's, you know, this year we're in a lot better spot than say we were last year last year, we were racing our teammate for that final position and the points to transfer in. And so we had to race Watkins going very different. We had to race even road America, Daytona, things like that, very different because we were trying to get as many stage

"I want to bring international drivers to the NASCAR Cup Series and you see here that we're already making history. Sunday at Watkins Glen where we have drivers from 7 countries the most ever in Cup Series history in one single race. We've got drivers from Finland with Raikkonen. Daniel Suarez obviously in Mexico. Mike and rockenfeller, whose overall winner of 24 Hours of Le Mans from Germany, he's also run the Rolex 24. He'll be there. He was a former F one veteran from Russia. I mean, the list goes on and on. Yeah. Maybe we'll see IndyCar guys. 1969, they were all from the same state. They're all from the same state. You know what? But you're right. You only had drivers from 5 or 6 state, period. You know what I mean? We didn't even do that. So that's pretty special. To an answer to this question, I think we're closer to seeing those guys. With this project 91, and just in general, with this car, I think this car brings our sport, brings NASCAR and what the car itself is closer to the IndyCars closer to sports cars closer to European racing. So it's not as big a transition for a driver to jump in. Yes, it's a transition. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying that all race cars are the same. But what we had before was so foreign to what akimi Raikkonen would say. So far and to what a Rockefeller would look at. Today they look and they look in the wind and they're like, yeah, I've seen this car before. I've been in this car before at some point in time. There's so many things. So I think that's part of it also. I think it's great. And it's great for the sport and you look at it. I just wonder who's going to be the first driver to really welcome someone like kami to NASCAR and giving that little punch in there. Right or left rear quarter panel, depending on what corner it might be. Yeah. Well, certainly not. But unfortunately, right? Depending on the turn one on the first restart, we're expecting it'll be quite the welcome for these guys. Oh, yeah. Can you imagine that? I can't. Wow, man. Hey, welcome to NASCAR boys. Turmoil. Watkins Glen. Let's take another phone call, NASCAR America motor mouse, welcoming Justin to the program, Justin. What are the I for us? Yeah, I guess it has a question. Where do you think cases could. Not only work overall
Allison Gill Doesn't Trust DHS Inspector General Joseph Cuffari
"You were tweeted, Frank will see our other shared superhero who said metadata shows ten of the 24 Secret Service personnel did have a text around January 6th that were not retained and you said the DH SOI G, the one who waited months to go to Congress triggering two whistleblowers has now halted the probe that was getting the metadata. So talk to us about because Malcolm X was just on last week, he said they're going to get those texts, but you know, I think Glen kirshner this morning, not so sure, because this is the group that knows how to do that. It's always presumably they would also know how to make them disappear. What do you think? Well, they clearly did. And I mean, they have to do a lot of work to make these disappear. And they did that. It seems like they did that work. I don't trust this. This Cuba. He's a Trump appointee. He is the one who quashed the investigation into the Secret Service attacks with rubber bullets and tear gas at Lafayette square in the wake of the George Floyd murder. I don't like him and it seemed like the Secret Service was getting somewhere with that metadata. And those ten individuals and 24, the original 24 whom include people like ornato and angle. And then he comes in this OIG who sat on this information since February and didn't tell Congress comes in and tells the Secret Service to stop their investigation because he's doing a criminal probe. And I've been asking one thing I don't know and one thing I want to find out is when the office of inspector general does a criminal investigation, they're probably some oversight from the Department of Justice because the OIG can't charge anyone. Right. And so I want to know sort of what that process is. Does declaring a criminal investigation by an office of inspector general bring in the Department of Justice for some oversight because I would really like to see that
Glenn Kirschner Feels a Trump Indictment Is Overdue
"Glen, you just tweeted when the J 6 committee revelations about Donald Trump's crimes. It's time for the DoJ to indict Trump and his co-conspirators. I was saying at the top of the show being out with chairman Schiff last night, we were saying that I understand he Liz Cheney, Elaine Laurie, others, putting public pressure on DoJ. I think that's fine. And I know you're of the impatient crew like I am, but I'm just curious, you know, because other people point to, you know, whether it's the eastman, the Clark raids, as you just said, the Bannon indictment to say that the Justice Department is working. Where do you come down on this in terms of, I mean, are you saying when you say now you really feel like Trump should be being indicted now? Yeah, I think a Trump indictment is long overdue. I try to exercise patients because I appreciate you need to build the strongest case possible against a former president and his co-conspirators. But you know, I just did a piece for MSNBC daily and I said, look, at some point, it's great that you're involved in covert investigations, grand jury investigations, which are secret by law. You're doing things behind closed doors, but Steph, there comes a time when we have to see overt public law enforcement action, like when we have witness tampering, those people need to be arrested promptly and publicly one to neutralize that threat and to send the message of deterrence to others. The problem is, no one on team Trump is being deterred. Why? Because there's no overt public law enforcement action. That I fault the Department of Justice war. They need to start doing that now. I don't care if we don't see a Trump conspiracy indictment tomorrow. We need to see some of these people who are tampering with witnesses and destroying evidence. We need to see them arrested now, and then you build on that.
Glenn Kirschner Explains the Gravity of John Eastman's Pardon Request
"Let's do a clip number 16 here, eastman asking for a pardon. Doctor eastman emailed Rudy Giuliani and requested that he be included on a list of potential recipients of a presidential pardon. Doctor eastman's email stated quote, I've decided that I should be on the pardon list if that is still in the works. Doctor eastman did not receive his presidential pardon. Glen, you've talked a lot about pocket pardons and who may or may not have them. Just in regards to eastman, what do you think about that that consciousness? I mean, that is almost better than a confession to crime. And here's why I say that. When somebody confesses to a crime, 15 seconds on how it usually plays out, you're arrested, you're Miranda, you wave your Miranda rights, advising you that you have the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney, you waive those rights, you agree to be interrogated, and ultimately you confess to the crime. When we go into court, you know what every defense attorney and defense team will argue, that confession was coerced. It was involuntary. It was improper. It was in violation of the law in one way or another. When you request a pardon, there's no coercion coercion. Nobody forced you to request that comes from within. Based on your belief that you committed a crime and its consciousness of guilt and the only way you can get away with your crime is if the president pardons you. There is no coercive police conduct anywhere near John eastman's request for a

"It was so much fun, and it was something that for our family, Glenn and I and our three children, it bonded us in such a beautiful way. And we were able to just enjoy him and celebrate him while we had him with us, it was wonderful. In preparation for meeting you and everyone here, I wanted to make sure that I watched the movie again. And what I was most struck by. Was the love that your children have for their father. And how protective they were on stage. You did a lot of things right as a mom because these kids were so generous and so protective and yet they honored their father so much. They never stepped on them. They just guided him. Talk a little bit about that. Well, we tried to prepare for everything, just in case. And when you're on stage, the lights are blinding you in the eyes. So we wanted to make sure that Glen stayed safe. So Ashley was wireless, Shannon, on the other side, he played guitar. He was wireless. Just in case Glenn got too close to the edge of the stage, because your death perception can become affected if you have Alzheimer's. He never did, but we had that coverage just in case. We had other tricks up our sleeve. We had to make sure there were never any children in the front, row, because if there were the entire show would be sung as Donald duck. Because he loved children. And he loved to do Donald duck to children. But a soft light to let him see the audience's faces was really helpful because he loved people. And if he could see the people, he was mister entertainer, you know? He was telling jokes and singing his heart out to them. And he just loved to make people happy. One of the things that you said in the movie was, you know, I feel like I'm a stage mom because I'm running around chasing after this guy because there were times as the disease progressed that he would go kind of off the handle and be running down the hallway and knocking on people's doors and that must have been hard on you. It was difficult many times on the bus or in the hotel room trying to make sure he stayed in the room because people with Alzheimer's will wander and get lost. And so we had to watch him every second. And he would say to me, are we doing a show tonight? Yes. 7 o'clock. Okay. Are we doing a show tonight? You know, this gets a little tedious after about an hour. It was so amazing because once we got him to the edge of the stage and the lights came up and the intro to general on my mind started to play, it was like he was back. Music brought him back. And he walked on to that stage and he was a pro, he loved the music. He loved to, like I said, make people happy and the audience loved him back.
Gov. Youngkin Making an Early Impact in Virginia
"Now, Glenn young is coming on and governor yanka has had a great first week in the eyes of Republican. What would you ask him, Jake Sherman? It's my first interview since he took the oath of office. Oh my God, you're putting me on the spot. We are very good at this. You don't have to be worried about being put on the spot. You do this like I do every single day. I don't know what I would ask you to be honest with you. And I have to think a little bit about that. I mean, I mean, listen, the front page of the front page of The Washington Post yesterday, listen, I think candidates like our politicians like him are making a simple bet. And I think that bet is turning out to be right in a lot of senses. As a parent, I think at 30 right, which is parents are frustrated. They're sick of a lot of these mandates. They're sick of living under handcuffs. And I think and by the way, I have plenty of democratic Friends, my wife to Democrat, most of our friends are many of our friends or Democrats. And they sound a lot more like Glen young in these days than they do like democratic candidates. Let me follow up on that, Jake. On the issue of COVID, on the issue of
I-95 Closure in Virginia Ends After Hours of Driver Despair
"Help, I 95 is reopening in Virginia. After the winners storm, I think we all know senator Tim kaine spent 27 hours in his car because of the United States senator, we are focused on what happened, but imagine having four kids in a station wagon. The fetching message he was up late last night, reading horror stories of parents with children one ambulance driver was kind enough to let four freezing kids. They were turning on and off their cars, sleeping an ambulance on gurneys. That'll be a memorable experience. How you can not get organized. This is Ralph northam, Virginia Department of Transportation yesterday. The funniest thing about Twitter were that the morons on Twitter were blaming governor elect Glen young for the Virginia Department of Transportation and aptitude in failing to plan and execute any kind of a close the highway keep people off of it order, which is what they should have done. Just close the eye, keep people off of it until it's plowed. Ohio turned pipes been doing that for years. So Glenn young can just can't get there soon enough. And the national reviews Dominic Pinot wrote a story late last night why I 95 in Virginia is jammed. And it comes down to the Virginia Department of Transportation, lack of preparation, inability to execute and general ineptitude. And this has been 8 years of democratic management. So what did you expect? The Commonwealth used to work when governor George Allen was there. And now governor Glenn young is going to have to bring in an entire new group of managers infused some private sector know how and knowledge. In an era of weather forecasting, if it says 7 inches, then you plan on 14. That's what you do. If your parameters are going to be safe, it's always easier to say, oh, so we missed. And that's what happens with hurricane season. People prepare, then it misses, and that's
Jim Hanson on His Political Expectations for 2022
"On. Let's look at the political system in the last 11 months and what we can predict for the future. We have I consider him there's some real greats in America, a handful, like Victor Davis Hansen, one of the greatest political minds for me is Newt Gingrich. He said the insanity of the Democrat party right now is a function of the fact that they know they know they're going to get totally shellacked next year. And they've got to they've got to stuff it all in the kit bag right now because they won't have control. It is fascinating that the arch strategist, Nancy Pelosi, is refusing to confirm that she's going to run. She's bought a $25 million house in Ron DeSantis state of Florida. Sorry Ron. So are they not going to try and treat? Are they not going to be able to cheat enough? Do you agree with that we take over if we do? What happens with the rhinos give us your expectation given the last ten months what's going to happen next year? It's been heartening for me to see how badly the left is screwed up and the fact that the backlash started right here. In Virginia. You know, our first win was turning Virginia back red and that was massive. Let's unpack that. My argument having had Glen on the show having met him is he didn't win it. He pivoted, he saw the mama bears, he embraced them. It was the mama bears that won it. I mean, I didn't think he was going to win. Honestly, you know, Terry, the bagman for the clintons, I thought he's going to do whatever it takes to win it. Who won in Virginia and why, Jim? We won. And everyone on the right one and I don't care Glenn can mean very little to me personally. Terry McAuliffe losing means massive things to all of us because it showed a we can win elections. There was so much disheartening. They tried. You know, they were trying to say, where's my extra panel trucks? Full of ballots for fairfax. And they never showed up. All right, so we can actually win an election. It gave us a little momentum, throw in the written house verdict and then actually they are very verdict showing that our justice system works. The jury system works and we have that. It takes a little wind out of the sales to the left, and now we're looking forward to 2022 and parents everywhere are rising up.

"Speaking English as a resident of Virginia, I am, of course, buoyed. I am very excited by the recent victory of Glenn young of his lieutenant governor of his attorney general. What is, can we read a broader significance into this for next year and for 2024 or is it rather sui generous as a resident of the Commonwealth, I look at what happened here. And I see a businessman not unlike president Trump with no political background. He brought a business like attitude to the campaign, talked about getting Virginia back to work. But in the last few weeks, because of those mothers you mentioned at the school boards, he very adroitly pivoted to this culture war issue of fighting critical race theory and vowed to ban it on his first day in office. Is that a model or should Virginia be dealt with this as something unique? No, I think I watched lens campaign closely and talked frequently with his campaign manager. And I believe that the turning point of the campaign actually was when he went to a loudon county rally of a thousand people who were upset about the schools, and then in the debate when former governor Terry mcauliffe said that there was no place for parents in schools, and that was electrifying and as you pointed out Glen is a businessman and built a good campaign team and they actually had something up on the air. By the next morning. And just throw home for everybody in Virginia, the term of thought that there was no place for parents and schools. And that, I think became the signal moment that began to change everything. No, young can also did a very adroit job of having Trump's help in rural and southern Virginia where he's extraordinarily popular without having Trump campaign in Arlington and fairfax county where he's unpopular. And so junkin was able to pick up all the support in the suburban counties from people who were upset about the schools while picking up all the support in rural and small town Virginia from everybody who was pro
Where Are All the GOP White Supremacists the Left Keeps Talking About?
"Where are the white supremacists that we keep being told about Jennifer? I wish I was out. I don't know what they are. They're at the Glen young in rally paid for by The Lincoln Project, pedo protected. Oh, hang on. I just connected two things. Isn't that interesting? Lincoln project protects pedophiles like Jack Levi, with 21 young men, children as well who had inappropriate sexual relations with. That's The Lincoln Project white supremacist problem with Rick Wilson and his wife cooler with the south shall rise again written on the cooler with the confederate flag. Oh, and then there's white supremacists like Charlottesville, so I think there's a connection here, isn't there, Jen? Yeah, you're absolutely right. Everything that the left calls us is exactly what they are. We've seen it from conspiracies. We've seen it to what they call the people on the right. It is just them trying to shut people down and to try to deflect from who they really are, and it's disgusting. We have got to do a better job of spreading the message. I know talk radio does it. Thank God for that. But when is the news media going to wake up? When is the left going to stop trying to brand the right just because they can't articulate facts because they don't have any to bring to the
Founder of American Majority Ned Ryun on the Glenn Youngkin Playbook for Success
"And we're back with the founder and CEO of American majority Ned Ryan. Let's break it down. Let's look at what does this mean? Yes, it's one election, but it's a resident of the Commonwealth. Right, man, I'm excited. It's so easy to ride off all these overpaid rich bureaucrats who moved into nova change the demographics of the state. Well, that's over. This man, the nice thing, my wife, you know, said, the thing about junkin is he's like Trump because even in his acceptance speech, he was rattling off the things he's going to do day one. Yeah, that's right. He's going to have a committee meeting. No. No. Batting CRT tax cuts put advanced courses back in. Right. I mean, there's a whole long list. Huge things that as a former CEO of Carlisle group, you know, he should be able to actually implement in a business like fashion. So let's pull back from the Commonwealth. Right. Let's look at what this means nationally. Let's look at what it means for next year and 2024. Let's break down first the Trump effect. I think my old boss, I might be biased. Played this really delicately and well. He did. Because he did that phone rally, but nothing else. He did a soft endorsement, but didn't come out banging the drum on Fox every single day for Glen. Glenn came out of the closet came in on my show after mucking around my producer for a few weeks. Quitting himself, well, and then once he came on maestra, he was you opened, you know, the force that he came out of breitbart he came out of Fox Glenn was everywhere suddenly, very interesting, which means he's not fully distancing himself. He walked a very fine line. Extrapolate this for next year in 24 Ned. Well, that was the smart part about what young Ken did and I think he literally has laid out a playbook for Republicans in 2022 if they're smart, which is a massive question. Let's be honest. We're talking about that master question next. Right. Drive the playbook. The playbook is he saw he took the side of the parents. It's common sense approach in which the parents should have an advocate in which we fund public schools, we should not be abused by them. We should not have our children indoctrinated and then our kids. And it's our money. The funds everything. And Republicans need to embrace this and go, yeah, we're siding with parents. I mean, this is so common sense. I still have been around politics so long. I'm sure there's going to be Republicans will find a way to mock this up in 2022. But if they fall the Glen young can playbook and embrace it and say I'm gonna be an advocate for parents, parents have every right to be involved in their children's education. They should have every right to be involved in how their taxpayer dollars are

The Lincoln Project Organized a Group to Carry Torches at Glenn Youngkin Event in Charlottesville
"Win. Did you hear what happened with the Glenn young campaign the other day? This kind of took off on Friday. There's a really, really shady organization called The Lincoln Project. These are a bunch of disgruntled former Republicans, I guess who hate Trump and now they're pro Democrat. Now they, you know, lift up Democrats every chance they get and they're capable of a whole bunch of dirty tricks. Like this one, they had a group of, I think four men and a woman. And they went up to a Glen youngins campaign bus and they wore like long sleeve white shirts and baseball caps and they were carrying tiki torches. Like the. Crazies that were protesting over it Charlottesville. With the tiki torches and whatever they were chanting, and that of course was a tragic event that culminated with some evil lunatic plowing his car into an into a crowd of protesters and killing a young woman. Well, somebody from vice, the media organization recognized the woman, in other words, these white supremacists, whatever they are proud boy, want to be with the tiki torches, they were pretending to be young and supporters. And then, of course, the mcauliffe campaign oh, righteous indignation. McCullough of campaign social media manager, Charlie Olaf tweeted out, wow. At a campaign stop for Glenn young, people were holding tiki torches and chanting we're all in for Glenn. Disgusting reference to the 2017 unite the right rally in Charlottesville.

"Show off the oh we're talking with Glen How are you Glen Welcome to the show Closer thank you very much for a wonderful show I have two quick questions The first is my father wrote a will listing my mother as his sole beneficiary when he passed his will went to probate which froze his assets pending final disposition which created a financial hardship for my mother So I asked my attorney if I could avoid probate and so we created a trust for me and we transferred title to my home from my name to the trust and the question is my stock account is in my personal name should I also transfer that account to my trust now or just state that upon my passing that should transfer to the trust so that I can pass it to my errors Yes I'm assuming this is a revocable living trust Yes Yeah so yeah this drives me crazy about lawyers a state attorneys I'm sorry This just makes me mad Here's the issue The answer to your question is yes And here's the issue When lawyers draft trusts a trust is a set of rules Explains how assets are to be managed and ultimately distributed either to yourself or other people both during your lifetime and upon your death So a trust is picture it it's a vault And the trust is a ironclad set of rules that the law and the courts widely bless and it's a routine part of financial planning And you go to an attorney to get that trust to establish it to get it into place and to build that vault The problem is it's just a vault If the vault is empty the trust itself is of no value There was getting a trust does no good at all Until you title assets into the trust until you put stuff into the vault So your lawyer had you retitle your home into the name of the trust so the house is now in the vault Good for you But the lawyer stopped was done What the lawyer should have said to you we need to do the same thing with all of your financial assets Not just the house.
Donald Trump Dangles Possible Campaign Stop for Glenn Youngkin in Virginia Race
"And a friend of mine asked me today, does it help or hurt Glenn young in Virginia? For president Trump to go campaign on his behalf. The Trump team is signaling a hint that Trump might go to Virginia and campaign on behalf of Glenn youngkin. Now, the Democrats in Virginia are clearly banking on tying Glen junkin to Donald Trump as if that's going to be an effective deterrent for Virginia voters. I don't have any crystal ball. I don't know the answer. I can't get into the hearts and minds of independence and Republicans and Democrats in the Commonwealth of Virginia. I just know that Donald Trump is going to be the centerpiece of the national recovery we're going to have to have to repair the damage that these Democrats are inflicted upon the United States.
McAuliffe-Youngkin Governor's Race Tests Democrats' Tenuous Hold on Virginia
"David, when I considered the Glen young campaign, Glen young has probably said he is combined everyone from the forever trumpers to the never trumpers. That is the winning formula. And you have to do it in such a way as the independent don't even think Trump is being discussed. And I look at that race and I think Terry mcauliffe is getting a lot of voicemails saying Terry, sorry, we're not going to be able to make it on Tuesday night. It looks like a wake over there right now. He could still pull it out, I suppose Joe Biden's going across the river today and I suppose anything is possible with turnout, but boy are parents angry over Virginia schools, and not just CRT, the quarantine rules aren't driving people, nuts. Yeah, look, I have to say, because Virginia has over time become so reliably democratic. I don't think you can rule anything out and even Republicans who are optimistic. I think this thing is going to be really close. But I think where Terry mccaul is made a mistake is without Trump in The White House. The fact that he's an ex-president and I think may be attempts to paint Glenn youngin as a Trump foot soldier ineffective. And I think he did not focus enough on the issues that voters care about. A lot of them, this stuff is way over complicated. Sometimes you're on the wrong side of an issue because what you believe because of timing. But sharing a call have had a chance had he done so to say, look, you know, I've been gone for four years and I realized what has happened while I've been gone and why I flawed my successor, we need to make changes and you go to focus on this just as much as when young can do. And recognize the problem they had in the suburbs. I don't know if they took suburban votes for Democrats for granted because of how the Trump era was. But I think there was just a miscalculation there. And even if they weren't going to focus on education, I thought issues and issue issue based attacks unless the personal attacks are present themselves in such a way that you just can't pass them up. I thought it would have been much better than trying to paint on junk and as Trump because it doesn't answer to voters how are you going to fix my problem?

"glen" Discussed on In The Draft Show - NASCAR Talk
"Interesting interesting news but hey good. Good for good. For for mr Chastain watermelon man forgetting that gig. Yeah bring in there. I think this is a boost for him. And you know that obviously means kurt. Busch is not going to be staying at track. Calc- officially is a free agent. I'm thinking though that he's got something lined up. I mean they're obviously. We're the rumors of twenty three eleven. I think that's probably a good bet for a second twenty three eleven car either with or without a charter because Kurt said after the announcement made some complimentary comments about A about ross chastain and said yeah you know. This is great for him. He's a young hungry driver. He reminds me a lot of myself. Just without the attitude problems so good that get the kurkin realize that but for him to say something. Complimentary after basically chastain takes his car literally the number one then that makes me think. That kurtz probably pretty confident he's got something else lined up already. That just hasn't been announced yet. Yeah i'm sure it's just gonna take it's just everything's starting to come out now. Everything's gonna start to trickle out now and you know by the by the first round. The playoffs will know about seventy five percent of what's happening next If i may if you have a the history of the cars yeah so it started. The forty two was the Was the flagship car. Started in eighty nine with kyle petty Then it went through kenny wallace. Tommy kendall bobby hill junior before kyle petty returned then jin solder Joe nemechek phil. Parsons joe nemechek again. Then kenny irwin junior And then after kennedy era junior pass. They switched the car number. Two a one Okay and then. That was great. Pj jones bobby hamilton. Junior jason leffler darcy schrader scott pruitt jimmy johns and then and then it went to after scott pruitt went to the air. Sorry after jason. Leffler went to the forty one spencer in the taj car with scott. Pruitt running the glenn. Casey mears reed sorenson scott pruitt again. Running a road course And then goes to the number one when marty x. Game over for that one year before jamie mcmurray because that was the the number one was bought up. Diy right and so direct was there and then he went elsewhere to. I think he went to michael waltrip. At that time. Jamie mac went into the one and now we got kurt. Busch the forty two as it is now started as the forty six while you don jr. martin morgan shepherd. Jeff grieving tommy kendall. I think that was the first union car Remember that green the green thing. Oh yeah yeah yeah And then it went to the. Oh one in ninety nine with jeff. Green steve grissom iran hornets. Jason left the road the oh four in two thousand one for a race. That didn't qualify. Then jimmy spencer. Got the forty two with jamie mac and casey mears after that one. Pablo montoya kyle larson. Regan smithfield in. And then kyle larson kensington. Ross chastain as we sit right now that's pretty good and that by the way everybody all from memory. yeah no. that's a lie. I wish remember would be surprised if it was off. Remember i had. I had to look that one up because it confusing the forty eight car. The original forty two exactly. Yeah no it totally is for sure. So in addition by the way to track house now making the second driver selection having their team locked up for next year with daniel suarez and ross chastain which by the way they will have ross chastain in the number one and then of course he'll swear is in the ninety nine so they've got both bookends of the numbers But track house also says. They're looking at running the indy five hundred in the future. Of course that would be an indycar. Not in one of the cup car. Try but yeah so. Yeah basically just marx's like we got the cash and we got like the plan and we're going to make this happen. I don't understand it. I mean i would love to sit down with jason marks and talk about the business plan how it all came together because they literally went from like nothing to like to khartoum buying out chip ganassi racing talking about getting into other series and you know celebrities cabinet in to work with them. I mean dude must have insane business skills. That's all i gotta say. I think we've talked about it before. His dad part part owner though the warriors. Some stuff oracle like he has the business acumen. I mean we've seen people come in that. Have money tried to put together like a real operation and not really have much success and here he comes and bam. I mean you know whereas doing okay already right out of the box. Now they're buying up ganassi and they're gonna have chastain two and two car operation so it really is interesting that they've been able to do so much in such a short amount of time and i think it helps a whole heck of a lot that time yours is there. Norris of course the architect for Earnhardt racing the racing before that whole thing happened. Yeah And now he's with track house. I think that's a huge thing and It's you know for them. It's it's pretty pretty interesting. But yeah i gotta figure the money. There is The money is there for trust marks. And there's going to do anything. Yeah yeah so so. Let's move on There's not a whole lot more to talk about. Although i do. Wanna get to this numbers thing for next year Nascar starting this weekend by the way. Watkins glen there mandating masks for everybody That is not an unexpected development We're recording this show a day late because my job we had to stick around for a meeting about the same exact thing and It's only gonna be enforced in enclosed areas regardless of vaccination.
"glen" Discussed on Slate Money
"Hello welcome to the glengarry. Glen ross episode of sleet money goes to the movies. I'm felix salmon of axios and i'm pointing to my long term co host here and i'm gonna say what's your name. What's my name fuck you. That's my name is dr an eighty thousand dollars. Bmw that's my name or whatever. Your name is not i-drive eighty thousand. Bmw your name. Is mary child. That's accurate istan. Name's mary childs. Yeah not quite the same punch volkov. Same points but is a fabulous name and you're fabulous besson and you have all manner of awesome stories on the radio right yes. I tried to deliver awesome stories. i am a co host at planet money and we do fun narratives that are about like business economics finance things. They're usually capers yet educational this movie. I'm not sure if it counts as being either educational or k. But will they could probably make claim to both if you really twisted. But we're going to talk about lender again written by david mammoth directed by someone entirely forgettable and acted by a cost. Everyone ever heard of lots of white men. Doing lots of david mamat acting. It's a movie that has really resonated for decades people love to quote it. and wigan unpack. Why coming up on slate money goes to the movies. I'm not trying to be a diva but should we actually say what my name is. Maybe it's emily. Emily pack slam. The name is not q. Okay mary glengarry glen ross which suddenly find incredibly hard to pronounce. Where were you when you first saw this movie last night in preparation for today. Yes i felt like this was an opportunity to do some of my like finance wall street homework as a journalist covering the space. I've long that. I need to watch movies like american psycho the big short glengarry glen ross and others that constantly get referenced but it does have the effect of like you know how when you see borat after. Everyone's been quoting it to you for ten years. Yes yes it takes the air out of it so now you're watching it and you see alec baldwin say always be closing. Oh okay now. I know why everyone's been talking about this whole time. And then he leaves the movie and we never hear from him again. This is wildly misleading. Yes you thought. This is now like baldwin and in fact it's a jack lemmon movie which no talk about because jack lemmon is not your typical hard-charging charging swear david mamat kind of guy. So even though it's actually a jack lemmon movie people think of it as now goldman movie which i feel like is kind of the takeaway of like we tend to maybe intentionally ms understand movies like this where we like latch onto the alec baldwin swagger successful eighty thousand dollars. Bmw character and forget that the entire point of the movie is the jack lemmon character. It's the classic thing with these movies. Just like wall street where this is like a tragedy about jack ramen and the other guys too but everyone is like i wanna be alec baldwin for some reason because he sounds cool. Looks cool makes a lot of money. He's a closer so are we can't close the leisure given. You can't coche it. You are shit. Hit the bricks powell and beat it because you are going out. The leads are weak. Leads a week fucking leads a week to week. I've been in this business fifteen years. Fuck you that's my name you know. Why mr because you drove a hyundai to get here tonight. I drove an eighty thousand dollars. Bmw that's my name. you know. This is the paradox of last polka. Michael lewis book that he wrote it as this sort of course about the accessories of wall street and everyone like. Oh my god. That sounds amazing. I want to work on braintree and to this day people come up to him and say you inspired me. And he's like. Did you read it just wondering do that about okay so this is an interesting question. This is a known trope when it comes to. Gordon gecko right gordon. Gogo is precisely the courtroom retail who become some kind of folk hero because people don't understand what the author of the movie was trying to do in this case. I think it's very fair to say that the author of the movie is not the forgettable director who did forgettable directions. The author of the movie is david. Mamat was he trying to write a sort of course tale about the excesses rampant hod selling and capitalism and conversely did people misunderstand it and take it as a celebration of something i think i mean. I can't speak to david's intentions here. We haven't spoken about this particular film. But i will say that it does seem like this is a modern death of a salesman that the salesman dies. And you're sad and somehow that got lost that gets lost in the cultural interpretation or at least the kind of things that like imprinted on all the ducks that watched it. I can't speak to what he was doing either as a play or screenwriter. Paul him maybe. Why don't we get him on felix on this. Show emily with the single exception of smith cameron. I think this movie is a critique of wait for it toxic masculinity. This movie is all about the horror of being a man in the united states and being trapped in that. Yeah i'm being trapped in it and you have to prove that you are a real man with your brass balls by always closing which is really a metaphor for sex. I mean alec baldwin literally says all over and over that it's fucking or whatever but yeah this is toxic masculinity and for a large portion of men who idolize the movie. I'm maybe that's exciting to them or like appealing. You want to be like a man. I don't know. I'm not a man who desperately they have to appeal or kind of have to identify with the alec baldwin character because the alternative is horrifying. Jack lemmon. yeah. I will definitely say. The in terms of gender occupations salesman has to be way up at the top of the list hod smooth-talking sales professional as exemplified by pretty much. Everyone in this movie. With the exception of kevin spacey is incredibly gendered role. You see it also in some of the titans of business in the real world people like tim. Armstrong say was famous as being very successful salesman when he was google. Or who's the chairman of cbs. Who was just legendary for selling ads late. The list memphis yeah. Lesbian investors really hot salesman and people celebrate that. And it's hard at least for me to think curve anyone with the possible exception of like elizabeth holmes who was like a great female salesman. I don't know man. I think there are a lot. I feel like okay. First of all like all of hedge funds sales is not all much hedge fund sales. Now is women that's true women and also like you have that spate of girl bosses. That did an incredible job with marketing and like finger on the pulse of whatever worldview wiest spouse at the time granted we've all moved on somewhat violently from that world view and punish them as a result. But i feel like the audrey gallons and the steph corey's et cetera. Okay so people. Don just come back very quickly. Say there's a big important difference between sales and marketing. It's important not to conflict the two. And i remember talking to ken fisher about this. Who is really the guy who explained it best to me. He obviously has. These funds sells financial investments to rich individuals. And he's like marketing is important. And then what you need is like a sales person at the end of the marketing funnel who will close the deal will close the sale. And i'm seeing this in masterworks right now. You know that this company which seems to be inescapable trying to set alight fractional ownership of paintings. They have a huge marketing operation. They have this massive marketing operation like buying ads in every lake financial newsletter podcast and everything and twitter but what that marketing operation does. It's basically just gets you to type your email into a box and then leads to say. Then that's the lead and then sell comes. And it's the salespeople. Julia drive company. I have many thoughts. Try to distill them. I women do sales felix. We've never bought makeup in a department store. But if you have those do not walk out without a full bag. Two hundred dollars for every time or a fifty dollars. Whatever i'm always sucked in real estate. My god likes. Don't let a real estate person near your house. you will sell it. You will buy one. It'll be a disaster by might know something about that..

But where there's sort of act of moderation using some statistical techniques things that people usually call. Ai so what happens. Is that any measure talking about like you know gay marriage or something people can enter. And here's what i think about gay marriage right and then People can say agree or disagree with someone else's statement and based on their responses and the language in the thing you can then cluster these together and you realize okay. Well there's this population of million people but there's only really like ten opinions more or less like everyone's kind of there's one or ten things that everyone's say and then you could actually identify which of these is. The most articulate way of saying it based on what people are voting for right and then you can read those ten statements. Right people can. You can't listen to a million people but you could read those statements right and then you can have people say things again but then you can score the next things. Not based on how many votes you get. How diverse across the groups from the first time are the votes that you got so you actually get points if you manage to get support from people who are coming from different things. We're not just repeating indignant digging into the same position but we're actually creating new positions that cut across the existing divides i see and if you rate a system like that you can get pretty quickly to at least some rough notion of consensus on most issues and it's come up with some really brilliant thing so like one example take. The gay marriage case is that they went through a system like this and in taiwan very traditional confucian society. There's this notion that when people get married their families automatically get married as well. Because you know the whole notion of extended families the confucian tradition and so forth but the thing is like a lot of the younger generation. Don't really believe in that..

You wrote a piece for wired a little while back Entitled is an ideology not technology. It's very provocative title. What do you mean by that. And what most people misunderstand about a the way that we use it today in our daily discourse i mean i think the reality is most people. Don't know what it means exactly anyways. Everyone has a pretty vague notion of it multiple literally. Just think it's a the robots are gonna kill us that's like mo will say that and then that's about it. Yeah well. That's just like i think i would say. Probably most people don't even have the robots are gonna kill us they just get some weird techie word and then i think you know most of the rest of the people think the robots are gonna kill us anyway but i think that white hey i really means within like technical communities that are developing it in the people that are investing in it is quite different from what the usual description that people superficially. Give him a lot of people say. Oh wow there's this amazing stuff like there's these neural networks that are like recognizing people are there is you know were. Sometimes you know.

That's that's no longer call day. I and anything that's like cool and new just gets call day so that's not a very useful definition. That's basically just like calling all technology. I and in fact the people who were like actually building these things and investing in them. That's not what they're trying to achieve. They have a very particular vision. Which is they want to create autonomous systems systems that operate independent of a lot of people's oversight or involvement and achieve intelligence.

And i think we are in a golden age where we've got these two great books that are actually useful that you can actually learn something from but that are also like you know. They have depth of information but are also accessible to someone who hasn't worked in radio or worked in podcasting or gone to broadcast school or worked for many years as a A writer at a cancer nonprofit like an anticancer not profit antics.

All all these Self-conscious overweening i would say malignant self-consciousness cut have manifested once. I came out took me a long time to come out Twenty came out at twenty-five leaving a string of horribly disappointed women in my way coup. Who i just kept dating because i i just couldn't believe it to be true. It couldn't possibly be me despite the donna summer despite the crop. Top despite the lifeguards. I just thought i attacked everything than all these feelings. The way i would attack any other feeling which is like oh. There's a logical explanation. I worked in a library then. And i went to the sexuality section and i discovered something called the kinsey scale. I said okay. Well this explains it. I'm not gay. I'm just you know a that's fine. This explains all these feelings. And so i would just push it down push it down and date these wonderful horribly disappointed women to whom i'd make You know dutiful love. I would say it was like yeoman like efforts and then one time something happened in college and say okay. Well this there's no. There's no thought process behind that there's no rationalization behind that this just instinct. This is this is the difference this makes sense now but it still took Twenty five years and big chunk of therapy because at the time i went away to the writers workshop leaving behind a woman. I'd been dating in new york And she was incredibly supportive and she was gung ho and all in. And i saw that that break as the logical way to break it off and become who i was and find myself in the cornfields of iowa which i was. It's a whole other story but But i just felt so guilty. And then when i eventually started dating i had. I haven't remain to this day. what. I call I think i'm just relationship oriented but now realize a better word for that as clingy. I'm clinging and i just So the the intimacy trusts body shit All that stuff just made me kind of hate casual. Dating and i would. I would lesbian up real quick partner up With very wonderful men. But it was my i. I would get so self conscious and so nervous that sometimes in a casual hookup it might affect the Hydraulics shall we say. No what. I'm talking about there. Okay so yeah so just. It took so long to open up to my husband that i just Not can use the word cling. I i treasure it a treasure what i have with faustino. Because it's it's something.

And i fuck adjust and my mom worked at the school and was just such a school spirit person. She worked to that office and then she were principal's office and she was so full of school spirit and she kept trying to get me to go after sports which was not my cards and then go for the band which was also not in the cards so i edited the newspaper. That's that's the concession. I gave to her. I will do this. One thing But yeah gave bars just i. I can't ima- i hooked up. Never possible just just was too convinced a that everyone was looking at me and judging me and be holding the same thought my brain that would ever look at me so That is that is not a.

"Edit what you wrote that morning and then you close up at three. And then have yourself a gin and tonic. And and and that's ridiculously prescriptive. Everybody has a different process. But i did find that As as it was putting around in the morning and making waffles. Whatever the fuck and then. I was on my way to the chair. My subconscious was doing the work so that there was no faffing around. When i sat down i would sit down and i would just start from where i had left off the the day before as opposed to spending the first hour just sort of with start stop so there is something about structure and about Bad rigor it's there. There's something about it that actually works but that said people read how they right and One of the mistakes that i would try to sell is that everybody should write the same way. And that's not true now but people do have the idea that it's supposed to be fun and it can be but it isn't you know i mostly is eighty percent isn't i think it was mavis gallant. No no.

You're incredibly supportive husband who has Had a social life. Tell us everything. How did you meet mini-scandal. Because i was assistant manager of the big gay bookstore. Here in dc. It's longer there because bookstores and he was who'd come in at night and work. This is before. I got the the toxic day job and We you know we were both dating each other people at the time. We knew that there was something happening. And if If i if either we weave through the through the our guys over Over the barrel. Whatever we'd we'd hook up and we we did. It happened in the very timid way. That many things happened with me back then when i was not A a sexual dynamo We went out for a milkshake. Like it was fucking our town and at the at the duplex steiner. The big donor here in dc after our shift and then I kind of hugged him and gave him what he came to. This day calls him. Pop kiss which is a little as we left as we went our separate ways and to me was just i was. I was french and the guy in in my head it might as well been. It was miss cheek. Was a lip hopkinson. That's that's i guess. My my distinction. But yeah and then after that i mean we have after that. We moved in together after three months We got sort of what our friends called. Commitments earned but commitment ceremony. But what we call the party. We just kind of got up in bed and said vows to each other and then we had a party that night and cause and that was i guess in Ninety nine and then fears back got married married and Yeah it's been twenty. She's going to say twenty two years. I'll two years. Wow okay. yeah and he is cuban-american and so people tend to think okay. Well you're the logical Uptight want and he must be the fiery latin firebrand and that is not the case. We are both rigorously logical people. He is just more much more Of an extrovert much more. Open and and Smiley than i am. And so people make that mistake So you mentioned not being sexual dynamo looking at the arms. I mean with this is where i wanted to go as well. Thank you okay. Let's talk about physical transformation. Let's talk about midlife. Let's talk about the fact that we have a new landscapers. They apparently show up at this time. Like literally our landlord. Jaz changed now. There's apparently this is their time. So speaking of arms out of the landscapers look well. I don't know i haven't seen him yet. I've only heard him. Okay all right Yeah i remains near. Its raking all breaking news. And this is this is. It's not supposed to sound polish. Not supposed to sound overproduced. It's supposed to sound and by the way at npr. Like we all were while working from studios now and we're all. Our dogs are barking. And you know we'll see it's it's been a long time a really long time and in the beginning. The first few months we'd hear from listeners. Like oh it's cute. Oh there's a child crying there's your dog taking a dump and And who knows. Now i mean for me. It's gone on far too long. I can't wait to get back in the studio. I heard that. Yeah well how long do you think you guys are gonna be back us. Do you guys could probably get pretty soon. Right i d. i'm not sure we are now a part of the world of wonder nasc and they have a space and it's kind of up to them as to when it will open. I i don't why we're we gotta get back to your body This is what we were here to talk about floor. We've blurred requiem dot going to keep us and there's no leaves. There's no brick probably rally some mortar mortar. This is this. Is the universe saying lynch degree with that. That's exactly what it is. I disagree more So yeah. I've always had like buddy shit I grew up not a chunky kid but a pear shaped kit was on a swim team. We do drills.

"They are they are they know what works and they and they stare into that so prepare to number three is Leave room for discovery. So if you overprepare you're gonna just gonna be dead if you just spout and talking points at each other. It's not going to be anything so for pop. Culture happy are for example. We each come in with stuff you want to say but the goal is always to find something in that room that we didn't necessarily think about think we'd find when we when we put on headphones The idea is you. You wanna let the audience in the way to do that is to let them into the process of you guys. Finding something like they're part of your thought process when you do that Ru four is as i say. Be yourself but better pithier smarter. Funnier if possible Remember that this is. It's not it's you're not putting on a fake persona but you are distilling yourself somehow. You're you're kinda trying to find out who you are and find the corbett and then finally Important one i put it lasts. But it's the most important rule is edit people think that pop culture is not edited. Because we have such great editors can take out on and lips max and digressions and where we say something idiotic where we got the date wrong where he mispronounced mangle. somebody's name. All that stuff is edited out. It makes the show sixty seven percent better because people are taking the time and it takes more time than people realize to actually go back and try to figure out what's best here and let me just not waste people's time right. That's you're gonna contract with people. They are giving us their time. You have to give them something. Worthwhile and editing is. The is the magic word editing a secret. As far as i'm concerned you guys do all of those things so beautifully. Because you do there is such. There is a structure to pop culture. Happy hour but there is also. There's obvious joy that you have each other's presence. You like digress. In ways that are always interesting and smart and it's yeah you've you now it and it is crazy crazy because there is no barrier to entry but it is it is wild to me. How how many people just don't are just like what this will be is like me and my friend talking right because people get and it's if that's what you're reaching for it that's when if you are just like i want i want this i would create a podcast for me and my friends To listen to and to get feedback on that is fine. This book will help you do that. Because we'll help you sound good. We have stuff about microphone. Placement at all and editing techniques will help you do executive that if you wanna grow it. There's also a lot in the book about that. It's again it's about narrowing your audience being consistent. That's thing that podcast listeners. Want consistency if you skip a date if you blow a blow deadline we hear we hear from it. We we hear people Kind of coming back to us because again. They're not paying money necessarily but they are paying with their time and they have slotted. I'm gonna listen to this podcast this morning when it comes out and if that date you have to do a lotta work to To make it up. It's it's what you owe your audience. I gotta say this is a. We've just surpassed two episodes and i'm still actively taking notes on here. I'm like editing We had not thought of doing that. Maybe will well. I mean yeah like dude we are still when we start a pop culture and we're very upfront about this. We each we picked from our friend group right. No linda that well or stephen but a new very well And if we're doing it now would we go into a studio and say you know what we need. We need to hear from more middle age. White people that is these are voices that desperately need to be heard and so when trae left they gave us a chance to start rotating in people with different perspectives. Different voices may the show better because we tended to agree with each other on way. Too many things and That's not to say that somebody from a different background would would necessarily disagree but representation. Have you heard this before. I'm going to coin a phrase representation matters and now we're five days a week And the four main hosts now Ha aren't necessarily on every show we can pull people in to speak to do something that directly impacts their cultural background and also we can then bring them back to talk about. Something really really doesn't because the people we bring into the show are just good critics right regardless of Who they are and so they can add something to a show like we are later parts but as ruksana. How did how did she. She was great on that show. But we're gonna bring her back to talk about something completely not that intersex her identity in any way because she's a great cultural critic and shows better when you do that when you think about things up front this is. This is what the the the opening of the book is. Just here's a series of questions we ask ourselves before we even think about putting your podcast. You don't have to answer all those questions but it helps to know that they're out there like we didn't know that this question of diversity was out there because we were so stupid and we created showing her own. npr was not part of the process. If they were they probably would. Have you know how had a a little bit better handle but we were just thinking. We'll do this on our free time. It really won't go anywhere and just go to the studio after hours and we'll put it out and It will be. This is what we think it'll be for. You know friends. People people like us and as soon as we realized that there was just all these major blind spots that we haven't addressed the show. Got better.

Let's let's put it that way. It's just awesome many great rex. I'm telling you and you have just written the npr guy into podcasting. We will discuss but what is in like. What are you subscribe to. What's your what's your weekly podcast diet. I it's it's too many. I have to go to thing here. Because there's too many editing given time let's see keep it must have seen. Tv gazed episode ever the original cast. Which is actually a great Podcast where people come on and talk about their favourite most formative broadway cast albums ninety nine percent invisible Behind the bastard radio lab. It's been minute with sanders log rolling newcomers Which started as a podcast. Where learn locus and Nicole buyer nicole buyer would watch star wars and feel pain and watch What did they watch next. I think the harry potter. No haven't done the harry potter. I do watch lord of the rings and they felt pain. Now they're watching. They're watching media films. And i feel pain. It's different it's like it's the tables have turned and i love it. Does boys make my day with john. Got but jessica lemon stopped me when i when you've had weekly you must remember this.

Or how are you getting all these then. I think people listen to one point two monsters in green not. Well let me throw this out your use. The stitcher app. You can listen at one point. Two five speed which i consider to be offensive My fiancee disagrees. Yeah it would shave some time. Certainly save some time. But i have a dog. He needs a lot of walking. So there's got we got dishes. They're made for for washington. And so i got i. There's never time when i'm not listening. I have these Near noise cancelling earbuds and so My husband isn't about the noise. Cancelling earbuds is. I'm just walking around the house listening to stuff but because he's often tried to tell me things i don't quite pick up on but Yeah it's just. It's it's my. It's my thing and i think the reason. Npr asked me to write. This book is because i was always stopping the long-suffering underground Who is the head of the vp of programming npr. And it's not in the hallways and tell her about the latest. You know i would tell her about homophobia teller about The you must remember this and she said okay so we're gonna do this thing. Go ahead and write it and marching orders were that it not be textbook that it not be dry technical manual. They wanted it to seem conversational. So i think they thought of me and then also if it could be funny adjacent. That's also and i feel like you're such a trusted resource on this because one could argue. It is it is. It is hack at this point to say like just what the world needs is more podcast. But we're in a way. We do need them. Because you're consuming a million of them. A day i could use more podcast but they need to be good. And so that's where you come in. But what if you are able to give us any any little nuggets is the glenn walden sort of theory of casting. Well i'll give you the npr theory first and then i'll switch to me the npr theory. Is that you don't want to start a podcast until you are reasonably certain more than reasonably certain that there's an audience for it otherwise you're just talking to yourself And so what that means is spending some time We do it in way. Too many meetings. But you don't have to this book you can. You can just do a couple of exercises of the book to really figure out. Who is your target audience who you're trying to reach and then think as fully as you can and this is just as optimistically as you can about what they look like not just demographically. But what are their habits. Where do they go online. What other podcasts. Or the listening to what tone to those other. Podcasts have And so if it's the first question to ask isn't what i wanna talk about. The first question is who wants to listen and if you do that Then i think you have you. You will any and you keep that in mind. Then you're going to hit the thing that That podcast many many many many other need which is clarity and consistency. And i think that's something that That causes this term. That i refuse to us but that others have used including the new york times pod fade raise only know it from chapter one of your book or the. It's just the notion that You know pod pa- podcast start but they don't have the staying power because people just can't get around twitter. Whatever it's it's it's a thing that happens and it's thing that happens for most podcasts So but i at the end of the book. I come with five rules to podcasts. By which are basically number one is be authentic as they say you can fake authenticity. You got it made. But no i'm talking about how You don't wanna come off slick or pre-processed. You what podcasts. Do that broadcasts doesn't is they kind of get inside your brain and one of the things that podcasts nurture as talked about a top of show is this kind of unit directional intimacy. This feeling that you're talking to your friends or you're sitting around listening to your friends talk. And when it is all created in a lab. I think listeners. Pick up on that Now you can answer a question for me before this podcast. Did you guys know each other or were you put together for this podcast. We actually were put together for this. Podcast okay that is a kind of alchemy that happens only two rarely because you guys nail it. You guys have exactly the kind of thing that is that causes people to come back and listen as you are at the top of the show talking to each other. It's it's i love the guests. It's my favorite part of the show The the other thing to do is to prepare. And this is the thing that people push back on me. A lot on is when i prepare do research like you know if it's an interview show do research on the guests. If you're you're talking about a topic do some research on the topic. But people say i just want to wing it. It's just me and my house out there. Just speaking off. The top of the heads were hilarious. You may be but When people come to me and they say well like my favorite Are comedians just. Winging it and i'm saying they're professional comedians. They know their audience. They have spent a career honing their voice. So they've done this work that i'm trying to tell you to do. They've done the preparation work already. So that studio They are a heightened version of themselves..

The conversation didn't go that way is to kind of just follow that and you know. There are arguments on both sides of this issue. I think they're certainly subtext. And the thing with A square focus that we look for subtext and we create subtext. Whether that is intended intention doesn't matter what you made is what matters and you made a film that you can read any way you want and i happen to fit three that there's something going on there but not everybody will and that's cool too okay. Which brings us. I suppose to anthony mackie's thoughts on the whole thing and the search for subtext in what i keep calling the talking snowman. Yeah as do. I do i. Can i refuse to talk colored anything else. Yeah i mean you know you take something as pure what was the other thing pure beautiful summa sexuality and which i heard okay.

This is the whole batman robin thing. Right i mean yes. This is this i one could write a book about how And there's chapter in the book devoted to the idea where have to explain queer theory. You know queer semiotics to extensively the straight people. I think will be reading the book. It's like this. Is when you depict batman and robin dick grayson bruce wayne waking up in bed together To you writer to you artists might be. Oh they're just chums but To folks especially back in that time this was a strip. I think in the fifties. It doesn't matter what you think because the queer fokker out there and we're looking for a presentation anywhere we can find it even places where we can't and we create it and a medium like comic books and film where so much of it is body language and you know unspoken on on Textual is Communication and then that's where we can find it and for years we had to be content ourselves that we don't anymore and that's good but You know it's I i would ask. I would ask the street folks to just maybe shut the fuck up. Every because their objection does tell so much. It is it is. It feels like it's hold over. Its appeal holdover some earlier time. Who would be in your gay subtext hall of fame Well let's see I i think you got your Your sh sherlock holmes and watson..
