The Rays Eliminate the Yankees In a Heartbreaking Game 5

"Me ask you this e because. In, twenty seventeen, there was this new core coming up right. And the thought was hey. Unexpected Ron made the playoffs one game away from the world series and I remember even the wildcard game against Minnesota that year was like just let this core group get a playoff series under their belt so that they get some experience and can grow with it. You got within one game of the world series one one of the world series it didn't happen. Now, there's a postseason failure in eighteen in one, thousand, nine hundred and get to the brink again, it doesn't happen in twenty losing game five of the LDS. At this point. Does it still if you're part of that group. visit. Still feel like you're ascending or do you start wonder if you've plateaued Now, you deficit they just sending I mean especially, those guys are so young you know what I'm saying like. inexperience in you know in age. So Yeah I. Mean You know going back over that run like seventeen we had to run. With all those young kids in. Out though I didn't I had I, didn't think it was gonna make the playoffs just just because we went to the playoffs in seventeen and everybody had career years we're coming back. You know with a young team I just I was surprised that we made the playoffs gotta ask. about a red sox end. In the next year, I thought nineteen, we were set up to. To to make a great run a debrecen. Obviously, we didn't do that. NFL This year you know is short season everything went on. So just to be able to to get out there and play and compete I think guys are excited. You know excited I mean I think is a lot to build on I. Don't think. I don't think you can up this year with the rest of them just because it was such a short season you don't think any. There's no like wondering are we the you know late nineties braves early two thousand braves where we're going to. We're GONNA get to a certain now they won one in ninety five to be fair to them. But then you know they're winning division after division after division losing to the playoffs losing the playoffs listen to play. Yeah I mean it does that enter the mind of this group at this point. I. Like I'm not in a group anymore so. I can't. Really tell you if they're starting to feel like that or not. You know. I was never I was never in that position I was about to say as a young player would. Myself as when I was young, I always felt like I had time like like August time to do you know what? I'm saying I got time to do, and then like I say, I, always bring up a seven because that was our year like we put it all together and that was a year and didn't happen. So starting panicking. So. You would have to ask the guys individually which year they thought that they were GonNa win in when it doesn't happen that year then you start panicking like shit maybe this this may not have you know hand. Right now all those guys play for the Yankees in they noted that the organization will do whatever they can to try to win auto free agents, auto players, and so no I think that they got time you. and. The reality is the starting rotation. Looked a lot different than what they had set out for because you thought you were going to have Severino James Paxton right behind Garrett Cole and you didn't, and obviously that changes the equation and made you have to use the bullpen differently, etc. Now, I, WanNa talk about coal for a minute see look if there's One Guy. Who acquitted himself beautifully in this Yankees. postseason. It was Garrett Cole I. Mean This Dude was everything they could've asked for he gives up one hit in this game and who knows if it's not for some weird wall overhang that Aaron judge got to familiar with maybe he doesn't even give up any hits in his five and a third innings. He. He really delivered and that you have to feel good about knowing okay. This guy is going to shove exactly the way you want him to this time of year yet. That was great to watch him be able to go out before. As that I know he wants you know what I'm saying. So it'll be good not this time next year everything rolling around you'll be fans in the stands and. Hopefully. We can have that Yankee Stadium proxy magic, and. Readiness. All the way to to we're supposed to be, which is a berated. I. What about pitching on three days Resi. What feels different like do you notice like all my arm isn't as strong I mean what? What what makes it a more difficult challenge when you're not pitching on your normal rush when you're pitching on short rest, it's not necessarily like your are being source. It's like everything else like little aches Oh you know you know you didn't get your. Your full arrest so you can't really overthrow You know watching that I felt like he was trying to give his normal effort their first ending everything was up. You know he was all kind of all over the place. Any just kinda settled in you know what I'm saying he gave us time you take a little longer than than usual and. He kinda settled into the game was able to find this delivery. That's the one thing about picking three days you have to find your delivery like. Were percent. Can you pitch at whether that? Sixty, five, percent seventy, five, percent, eighty, five percent. You know what I'm saying like you have to find that was going to make you be able to strikes in and be effective. So if it seems like you've found that right at the right time, you got to strike out and you know he kinda he kinda sail from after that I mean you have to Solo homer to tomatoes and then you know almost today what's that guy's name? You say his name well over process l. no the guy run our arousal arise arena Larussa Rhody. Almost curveball out but other than that. You know he pitched great. So yeah like you said I mean he delivered and and you know going forward that he'll be able to to to pitch in these situations you know several be able to pitch any situation. We saw what money can do to two nights ago. Yeah. Your boy came man Monte the Frazier Bryant Man, these guys these guys are in a good spot. So like I said nobody I don't think anybody in their Hispanic and not player. Wise. Anyway, you know that that's is the fans in the front office and stuff. You are the master of pitching on three days Resi and because of that even though it has a little less punch because the Yankees lost this game compared to what it would have been if the Yankees won this game. I want explore that a little bit further with you because you you did it a lot. I mean the way you did it in. Milwaukee with multiple starts down the stretch over and over again as you were just in Bistro and then we saw it in the nine playoffs as well where you did it the entire Oh nine playoffs and delivered you did it in game one and four of the AL CS is at it again in Games one and four the world series. What kind of advice did you offer Garrett Cole as he was getting ready to do it for the first time in his career as someone who did a lot and did it in big stages? You know what I didn't and I was watching the first thing that I was like man Fuck I should've called. You know what I'm saying. But I didn't he's he gates. He's he he figured it out on his own. You know what? I'm saying, I don't need to call bad like he'll call me if he did something. Yeah so I don't I don't want to bother him. I don't WanNa call him I know how he is. You know know the days before you know the day of leading up to historic. So you know I I don't want to call him but please believe I'll facetime mining when I figured out that he was making start. Well whatever you told Monte in the face time, it worked out really pitch well and game four and I was encouraged. You know see if we go through this game, there's not there's not a lot to nitpick and say, okay, this could have been done differently. This could have been done differently. We've just lost a game and. You just lost a baseball game to. All the time where we go to Tampa or we we play apple you know what I'm saying. So that's why I was so scared to play them in the playoff series because. That's the one team that I know that can fucking Peterson the series and they know it too. Yep Yet one hundred percent. It's how I felt last year too when they were playing the Astros and people like Oh we want the race I was like the race competing in the. Last. Year to we would have been counted the same. You know what I'm saying we would have been a seven game series for sure if they beat if last night got typically fucker pitches. Right move coming for the first. and. On the whole right I mean this is this is not what you are looking forward to. If you're major league baseball as far as ratings go I believe the Yankees when all is said and done at the end of this s I think they're gonNA have nine of the top ten highest rated games thus far in the playoffs they're going to have been involved in. So you know you better believe that there are going to be people who are wishing that the Yankees went as deep as possible for the sake of you know the economics of the sport, but from a pure. David Goliath baseball storyline, and there is something amazing even though it's not going to make my stomach feel-good or your Z. about the Tampa Bay rays and they're twelve dollar payroll. Taken down the big bad Yankees and Brosseau hitting the home run off Chapman after that like there's something crazy about that story how many times it I tell you that's not the way we do my career I'm not into. The raise but winning visit. I kept telling you that. The fucking raise

A Sustainable Startup Is Taking a Bite Out of the Toothpaste Market

"Something to chew on more than a billion toothpaste tubes or thrown away every year. That's the equivalent of fifty empire state buildings of discarded plastic tubes accumulating in landfills and oceans but wait isn't plastic recyclable. Well, that's what we thought. But earlier this month and NPR and PBS expose found that most recycling companies are only recycling milk jugs and soda. Bottles. That's Right Those Food Containers Yogurt Cups and other plastics that you painstakingly rinse out and throw into your recycling bin get buried in the landfill just like the other trash and toothpaste tubes typically have aluminum in them aren't recyclable at all. Now, one cheeky tooth care startup wants to clean up the sectors act bite toothpaste bits has one of those typical problem solving origin stories. Founder Lindsey McCormack was bothered by the toothpaste tube she threw away in her spare time she came up with a chewable tablet that foam just like her favourite paste the company rack up about fifty thousand subscribers in a year. Bite take sustainability. Seriously the tablets are vegan gluten free and packaged refillable glass jars subscribe to refills and they in sacks you can throw into a compost heap. McCormick also managed to ditch many of the chemicals found in typical household brands. She even made an appearance on his shark tank where she turned down a six-figure offer from Mark Cuban. McCormack said, she wanted to keep more control over the company Bite recently released a line of vegan plastic free dental floss. The startup will have to face down some goliath-sized competitors though toothpaste giant Colgate is making its own sustainability play overseas the brands smile for good toothpaste is nearly one hundred percent natural and certified Vegan most toothpastes can't be certified begin because the animal derived glycerin they use. USA. Today reports smile good uses plant based Glycerin instead, it's also packaged in a plastic tube made from high density polyethylene also called HD. HD. p. e. actually is recyclable is the same plastic us to make milk jugs smile for goods much. anticipated. Packaging has a long time coming. It took the company five years to figure out how to make a recyclable plastic tube soft enough to squeeze. Parent company Colgate Palmolive says all of its products will have recyclable packaging within five years. Smile for good is being rolled out in Europe the company staying quiet on when or if it's coming to the US though these moves away from non recyclable plastics are good news for the environment, and if there are any silver linings to the horrors of this pandemic one may be this sustainability has more selling power consumers are more sensitive to the environmental impact of their purchases, according to progressive, Grocer magazine and July study by new. York University found that sustainability marketed products continue to grow during the pandemic even as other brands floundered. That priority is clearly not lost on companies ranging from scrappy startups, worldwide conglomerates that one a sink their teeth into a bigger space of the market share by.

Should You Go to War With a Larger Company

"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su. And I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about if you should go to war with a larger company. So let's give you some context here. Yesterday were recording this as of August Fourteenth Twenty, twenty fortnight decided to go all out. They basically added in that payments and gay people discount, and you're actually you're not allowed to do that inside of apples ego system or android ecosystem because they charge either apple charges thirty percent commission I believe for Android it's about twenty percent or so. So both android and apple kick them off the. But what happened was epic, which is the owner fortnight by the way to do seventeen, billion dollars a year I believe they had their lawyers ready to go. So everything was drafted out boom lawsuit and basically what happened next was they had the nineteen eighty-four spin spin on apple's nineteen eighty-four added where that person came out and she spun around and through this thing. At the big giant TV and so look they were totally prepared to take off the gloves ready to go crazy and so yeah, they're fighting this behemoth seventeen billion dollars is the David Goliath is, what's what's apple's market cap trillion right over one trillion they're actually me up closer to getting to too there you have it. So what are your thoughts on this? Neil? Look at today I believe you should do what's best for your customers and users, and if that means you have to fight someone didn't do it because whatever's the best experience for your customers, your users what benefits in the most is what's going to win in the long run? Even if that means, you're going to have a battle with a really large corporation. Yeah I, think you know most people that are not in text don't know about the base camp founders how they launched. Hey and the how they're fighting they were fighting apple I don't know what ended up happening with that. But this is a much bigger example because everyone knows what art is and for them to actually file a lawsuit and then go against them and create a really nice add as well. That shows that you know they are sick and tired of being charged. You know seemingly outrageous kind of race it's I actually think it's apples prerogative to charge whatever they want. To charge, you know you're you're free to come off the platform whatever. So we'll see how this plays out. You know I think it's good pr you know from a market perspective it's going to be good for epic fortnight to just be like Oh like, yes I'm was actually standing up to apple and you know they're going to be in the news for a little bit more, and so we'll see what happens there and they're also big enough where they potentially when while most people who are trying to mess around with apple are much smaller have the capital while fortnight has enough. Money, but in general speaking, you should do its best beer users, and if that means you fight against someone than Soviet, you're doing what's best and what's right and at the goal then go for it you may not win. There's no guarantee of that but you gotta do what's right for people. Yeah I mean the final thing I'll add is look the discount on a permanent discount, right so instead of paying seven dollars or sorry instead of paying ten dollars for to buy coins for for in game items, it's actually seven dollars. Now I believe eight dollars. That's a significant discount because. I. Remember back

Discipleship: Our Role in God's Plan with Jeff McDaniel

"Don't find their own identity until they haven't interaction with the identity of God. They have to have their burning Bush experience. They have to have the road to Damascus experience. It's always unique. and. It always happens before they find who they are and the after find who they are before they find what God called them to do. Make sense in. The wego through life like what should I do? What should I be? No, you're asking the wrong question. The question is, who am I? Who is got in who am I because when you figure those two out, you'll never have a question about what you were called the do. So that's the second thing. You See. David. Start to do this right. There's so much wrapped up David but. There's two different aspect here. David I'm thinking about which let's get with the first aspect that is important for Americans is we think we are the center of the universe. We're the center of the universe. We think we're the center of God's plan. We think we're the center of everything right and and. Pretty. Most people are gonNA, come back and say, no other people do but that's not me. But you can see this in the way we read scripture. The when we read David and Goliath. Even look that I'm David. Bingo. Right. I'm David Who's my Goliath all this stuff. Some of the other characters in that story how David's brothers All right who reads the David and Goliath story and says, you know what? Man I really see David's brother in me. I'm released. All right. and. So we missed that or how about how about like how many times did God come through the Old Testament and like because somebody did something wrong like five thousand people would die. Well, what if what if that's us? Our role in scripture is the nameless Christian who died in the plague. Right. What if what if we're the older brother in the Prodigal Son Story? Exactly. Let's put that in perspective. When I preached the next TIME DOWN AT THE CHURCH BUT God has a much bigger plan and everybody has a role in that plan. Right. So so what Beth and I were talking about the other day is like everybody in everything in the world has a to play right that centers around God's plan not Gods God's plan doesn't sit around us we send around plan. So. One of the things I I plan on using this analogy the next time I preach but. Even in nature God has created everything have its rule and to play a part in support of his plant. So like one of those animals and nature that has a very unique plan in a very unique purpose as the Dung Beetle. So the Dung beetles job is to eat poo it just like it lives to eat crap. So when we when we look at this spiritually, what if we were called to be a spiritual dung? Beetle. Right yeah. Here's here's the deal though the Dung Beetle meant it loves poo. If thinks it's the best thing under the Sun Right. So, it's not like the Dung Beetle is like Oh man I got a horrible job here because it's fulfilling the God given purpose that it was made fortin. Now. Here's the deal. If another animal doesn't know what its mission is doesn't know what it's purposes, but it's like man that thing is so happy and this is maybe I should do what that's doing because that things happy and so now all of a sudden an animal that wasn't made be Dung Beetle tries to live outside of what God made it to be an all. It's GonNa be unhappy and find itself eating dirt. And that's what we do spiritually because we don't know who we are. So when we see someone who does know their identity, we try to mimic them. Okay. That makes sense that makes sense. Right. So you have people in the church all the time who just see the next celebrity pastor and just try to be what that celebrity pastor is Yep Yep. Even. Though that might not be who God called them to be.

Why Your Business Needs an Enemy

"Successful companies have defined enemies and you need an enemy in your business to go after Apple's enemy is the PC Tesla's enemy. Our fossil fuels are any cars are running on fossil fuels. Expedience enemy is your local travelagent overcharging you for your next trip. This is clearly defined in their marketing in their sales in their messaging, and there's a reason why they do it. They do it because it's important for you to define who you're not who you are. Trying to be the opposite of and this has a lot to do with human psychology as consumers. We know what we don't want. We don't necessarily know what we want, but we know what we don't want. So automatically, if you say, we are not this all the things that people get annoyed by you say, yeah, I don't like this and you automatically resonate with their brand who's defining that problem defining enemy some of the most successful marketing has been. Painting a business or brand against an enemy Sega did this in the nineties with Sega genesis pitting itself against Nintendo, and then later Sony playstation do the same thing with crash bandicoot against Nintendo clearly saying we're going after these people some beginners beginner entrepreneurs will say, well, that's kind of risky. What if that doesn't? Now there's no risk in that landing it's either going to resonate strongly people people are going to be like I don't know if I like that but it won't be vanilla it can't be ignored. The worst thing in business is being ignored and that's why it's very important for you define your stance we are not this we are here because we don't like how these people are doing things. The reason why this also works so well is because it gets in front of the idea that consumers are shopping around there comparing you against the competition and by getting in front of your saying, Hey, this is why were better we are not like this we're like this. This is also common in software web flow, which is a website building application for designers. Mainly, they have dedicated pages on how they compare against their competitors whether it's wordpress or squarespace they go head to head they don't shy away from it. They say these are our competitors. This is why we're better. This is why we created web flow. A lot of new businesses don't want to do this because they're afraid they think maybe Goliath is going to be down on David in the big company is going to get angry and retaliate or something like that. No, they're a big company. This is. Fair game they know it and they're dealing with our other competition as well. They understand the people that are the top of the mountain are going to be challenged and as the underdog people love an underdog story the love seeing and undertake on the big company and say we don't like the way they're doing their bloated there you know slow they're this they're that and we're here to give you something new if you WanNa. See a very good example of this. It's hey dot com I mentioned in an earlier episode this week behave dot com is a new email software it's basically a. To g? Mail. Is created by the guys behind base camp, and they clearly say that g mail is their enemy or traditional email is their enemy, and this is why they're better and they go after the competition to go after their enemy the our enemy does this this this? They don't respect your privacy they make email a chore. You waste so much time in your inbox again, your customers. Can really resonate with pain. They can really resonate with things. They hate, we all know we hate. So automatically when you are the person that's defining this, they feel like this person has a solution that's defining the enemy really does it really clearly states we're not this. We don't do this to you or all about this that contrast is really powerful marketing that contrast is really good for your brand. In also drives everything your business. So you know exactly who you are a lot of us we get lost when we do our marketing or email marketing or paid ads or even our copy on our website, and we're not really sure who we are. This clearly defines when you have an enemy, you know what you're not, and therefore the opposite who you are the other reason why this is so strong and it's so powerful. Is that when people? Shop around they come to your website they'll learn okay, this is your enemy. These are the people that you are going against. They might not even know that your competitor has some flaws and by visiting our website, they start reconsidering go into the competitor they're like, oh. Wow. I. Didn't know that people say that about the competitors I didn't know that this is what I'm in for. I didn't know that there are alternatives and because you're not trying to. Be a me too product and saying, Hey, we do this too. We do this to having a clear enemy and and really expressing that in the language of your website and your marketing really shows hey, there's a better way to do things you don't have to go with the status quo.

As Grocery Deliveries Soar, Startup Raises $10 Million to Unseat Giant Instacart

"As a result of COVID, nineteen instinct cart has become the Goliath of grocery delivery businesses as virus fears. Keep us out of grocery stores. We've been relying on food delivery mainly, INSTA- carts GIG workers called shoppers to keep a stocked up. This April INSTA- cart sales were five times greater than a year ago the Financial Times reported that I've popping growth hardly escaped. Investors Notice INSTA-. Cart raised another two hundred twenty five million dollars earlier this month that evaluation, approaching fourteen billion dollars. That's nearly double its valuation only eighteen months ago, perhaps needless to say instant carts thirty-three-year-old. A poor va mater is now a billionaire. But less you jump to the conclusion that Mehta can sit back and relax safe in his seat at the top of this rapidly growing industry. Thank again. A small startup called Ling is coming rich share of the grocery delivery business, though tiny compared to Insta- card investors are also taking notice last week dumpling raise six point five million dollars for a total of ten million dollars in funding so far founded in two thousand seventeen dumpling helps people create independent delivery businesses, the difference between shopping for instance card and dumpling is simple, but fundamental dumpling delivery workers own their own businesses Insta- cart workers are subcontractors paid by the shopping trip. Dumplings Co CEO's Joel. Shapiro Innate Danna make no bones about what motivated them to create dumpling. They felt sharing economy companies like Insta- card were treating workers on fairly so they created an APP that helps perspective entrepreneurs go into business for themselves to create a new business users pay a ten dollar fee for access to dumplings services and listing on the company's site where customers can search for shoppers. Bhai Zip Code. Shoppers paid dumpling a five dollar fee for each job or when they get busy enough switched to a monthly payment of thirty nine dollars. Dumplings model is not unlike Amazon's two year old partner delivery service, which also helps people start their own businesses in their case exclusively delivering Amazon packages supporters of the independent model say self employment in the delivery industry offers a number of advantages including higher revenue and insulation from the anti-god worker legislation that's cropping up all over the country so far fueled in part by the pandemic. The models seems to be working dumplings. Founders say customers or ordering twenty times more groceries than they were before in nineteen, and the company says it has helped. Two thousand people start their own delivery companies people. People like Kelly Vilchez in Orange County California. Vilchez operates under the business name shop girl. Oh, see. She told the L. A. Times that she's earning three to five thousand dollars a month. She's clearly a dumpling success story. According to the shop girl OC facebook page villages is featured in dumplings advertising campaign in contrast Insta- card has been plagued by shopper complaints since the onset of the coronavirus in March and April, many walked off the job, demanding better protection against Covid, nineteen higher tips and sick leave the Winston card initially claimed the strikes made no impact. Courts reporter Michelle Chang Rights. That's debatable on June. Fifteenth the Seattle. City Council voted unanimously to require that. GIG were companies like Insta- card and Grub pay their workers an extra two dollars and fifty cents hazard pay per order. That requirement is intended to last through the end of the COVID nineteen civil emergency declared by Seattle's mayor. Insecure has vowed a legal fight. Similar legislation is pending in Philadelphia New York and San Francisco Chang writes. It is these sorts of ills shortages of personal protective equipment, low pay and lack of sickly. The dumpling claimed self employment solves, but entrepreneurship isn't easy dumpling delivery workers have to do their own marketing and find their own customers, and they're on the hook. If grocery buyers failed to pay, which dumpling says is rare, that said any platform that helps the millions of unemployed grow their own wealth. Is appealing to investors, and it's interesting to note that dumplings mission says nothing specifically about the grocery business rather they say. We WanNA. Make dumpling trusted partner that helps anyone launched running grow their own service based business. Sure dumpling starting groceries. Be Questions. Where will they go next?

"goliath" Discussed on EconTalk

"It's certainly true that charter schools try to get. Motivated students and motivated parents, but of course many of them. Even, the most successful ones which are sometimes the most successful ones in the states that there in. Are Serving extremely poor. Children. From very poor families. And those children are having success in academic settings, other poor children in the state or city don't get from their public schools. What does your does that count? I. Don't actually think that's true I. Think what's happening is the selection process and I was just communicating yesterday with with one of the leading authorities in the country, one of the leading researchers David Berliner at state, and he sent me list of the charters in the saver Zona and the selection process as they required. Some of them require the parents to write. Some of them require certain grades that their a number of requirements that charters use skim the students they want to include those they try. They try, but in New Orleans say may that public schools are spending more and not getting better results I would say that there's a couple of things to look at one. Is that when we were? Back in the day when everything was idyllic, we did not include kids with special education. The charters don't want the kids with Special Education and I've been in public schools were there were sixteen year old kids in diapers? I've been in public schools where the teachers literally had to carry the children because the children couldn't. They were in a wheelchair. They couldn't go to the. The bathroom. The teachers were taking them into the toilet. Those kids are not in charter schools. Those kids are very expensive to educate and the federal government. When it mandated special education back in the seventies promise that the federal government would pay forty percent of the cost, and it is never done. It says while very very expensive burden on public education that it must beer. Well I guess I'm less I think that explains the magnitude of expenditure, but I guess the bigger problem I have which you don't. Mention, the book and I love your reaction as You make your very critical of the charter school proponents for their support of charters and their claims that public schools are failing. There are numerous public schools where children can't read and write and get moved forward without. Help. They, they graduate and they are poorly poorly educated. Do. You think that is not the case. Now I think that is not the case I think the cases that America has a tremendous skewing of income that we concentrate the poorest neediest kids in some schools which have very low test scores, and then say their teachers are to blame, and if only there were charter schools, and then the chargers come along and don't take those kids anyway. They push out the kids who have special needs. They push out. They don't want the kids who the. The lowest foreign kids, so those kids get pushed up the charter schools are not taking the low scoring. Kids are taking and Robertson disco says in his book they're choosing the families they want, and the ones that are the most motivated and those are not the kids who were the neediest kids, so they're not. They're not the neediest, but there are plenty needy, and right now in many American cities, those parents and those children have no opportunity. To achieve any kind of academic success, they have a very low chance of going to college. They have a very low chance of graduating from college, and they have a very low chance of being financially successful. Weight, isn't it? Let me just giving example of two cities that have a wide open for charters, and and one of them's wide open for vouchers Milwaukee has a charter a full blown charter sector. Of It has a public sector that's been stripped of kids in resources, an has a full blown sector. Old Three sectors do terribly no-one no-one has been saved. And the. Black kids in Milwaukee are performing on par with their peers in Mississippi in the charter schools as well as the vouchers schools the other example. I would off. You is Detroit Charter schools enroll half the kids and Detroit is today still the lowest performing city in the country so have to have some examples of success and not just give me the theory that I heard thirty years ago about the success academy in new. New York, you think they've cherry picked all seventeenth off forty one thousand students absolutely, and that those forty one thousand students in the public school systems of the poorest parts of New York City were thriving before doing as well as they're doing under the Success Academy Day or they cherry picking the best students their first, their first graduating class, began with seventy eight children in kindergarten by the Tampa graduated there only sixteen. Yeah. That's true. You think that's not a heart rate of patrician that is that was their first class. Though you gotta give them a little bit of a chance to get up to speed after fourth grade, they do not accept any new students now they kick out kids who in the dip or six foot? Where do you think they go? They go to another charter school I go back to the public schools. Success Academy is a very keen example school at. Practices, careful selection and high attrition, and you get great results with that. They're over. Over eighty thousand poor black kids in New York City who get scores as high as the kids and the success academy, so they have a lot of kids choose from who are poor and who are black, and who are doing very loan public schools. Let's go. That's a good comparison I'd like to see that that's that's definitely relevant. And the prudence in New Orleans when they switched to alternative school system. The achievements that Terry Moe champion here. I know you don't agree with his with his perspective, but I was on the New Orleans. School website They have big increases in test scores by the agree with you. The test scores are not everything we're. We have a chance to talk about that, but they have big increases in graduation rates from from high school. They have big increases in kids. Going to college are those luxury did would they have happened anyway to the kids if they had stayed in public schools well I think the first thing to know about New Orleans is about twenty five percent of the kids disappeared after the storm a temporary, those twenty five percent were not the wealthy kids. Kids those were the poor as kids who fled to Houston and other places, and never came back, so it went from being a school system that had sixty thousand plus forty, forty, eight, thousand, and the choice system ranked by the state of Louisiana shows a half. The schools are failing schools, so whether the test scores went up or not they're they're. They're still very low. In Louisiana. Scores are dominated by New Orleans which is the largest city Louisiana is one of the lowest performing states in the country, so you're talking about a district the New Orleans. Now. Which is blabber state of Louisiana and Louisiana Louisiana's one of the lowest scoring states in the country. So is this a model for the rest of the country I don't think so? No, but it says that the for fourth and sixth grade students, the percentage of students scoring mastery, and above in math increase twenty one percentage points. That's not unimportant. But that's still way below the state average. Yeah there. They got some issues that we're you and I agree is that it is absurd to think that the greatest school in the world is going to transform the lives. Of every desperately poor kid who is in.

They haven't achieved close the achievement gap They select the kids they want us.

How workers are fighting for their rights in a dangerous gig economy

"I was doing my grocery shopping at ten thirty last night and by doing my shopping. I mean I was picking things out on an APP that somebody else would get for me at the grocery store the next day and delivered to my front door and if for some reason I couldn't get a spot on that APP INSTA- cart and I guess we'd probably have ordered delivery for dinner using another APP that relies on another person to pick things up at the scary world and bring them to me. Yes I feel guilty about that but not enough to stop using these APPS and doubt that I'm alone in that right now we're relying on workers and the GIG economy more than ever and their job is far more dangerous than ever and most of them. Don't get hero pay or have job security or benefits. Some of them will have been fighting hard to change that and some of them have even one including a group here in Canada. The provinces Labor Board has ruled out food door couriers more closely resemble employees rather than independent contractors creating a groundbreaking precedent for others in the GIG economy. So today will tell you their story and we'll also tell you what happened right after that historic victory and we will do that as soon as. Clare. Who is just back from vacation gives us an update on covid. Nineteen this weekend Clare. Welcome back where did you go? Hey Yeah I took a few days off last week but didn't go anywhere. Obviously the furthest I went was to the park down the street. I am just glad that you came back. And before you update us. Can you explain to listeners? When will hear your updates now? Because we're changing that alphabet. Yeah will you know? I think we're kind of over the initial shock of Covid nineteen down the world and we've been hearing the phrase new normal lot so there will be fewer news updates at the top of the show from now on basically a couple times a week will update you on anything big happening with COVID. Nineteen in Canada. So yes you'll still get the news you need but maybe not every day and of course if God forbid a second wave hits and things do go downhill we will then be right here going down that hill with you every day and speaking of a second wave Clare. Let me guest as your report. Today involves some idiots in Toronto. Who were doing their best to make that happen this weekend. Yeah well that was what everyone was talking about this weekend. Because it was nice and warm out in Toronto and people wanted to go out so there were these huge crowds at Trinity Bell Woods Park on Saturday. Thousands of people were there with practically no physical distancing the city of Toronto. Call this dangerous behavior saying that. This threatened to undo all the work done over the past ten weeks so on Sunday. The World Law enforcement officers in the park and making sure that people were keeping that two meter distance. This is happening. As the number of cases of Covid nineteen is actually going up in Ontario and perhaps coincidentally two weeks after Mother's Day in Alberta the cities of Calgary and burks joining the rest of the province in allowing bars restaurants and hair salons to open today and there will be more restrictions lifted for those cities in particular on June first and in Quebec their concerns about an upcoming heat wave a minimum of thirty degrees Celsius for three days. Starting tomorrow the concern is people in long term care homes who don't have air conditioning. A long term care homes as we know have been hit the hardest throughout throughout this pandemic in Canada especially in Quebec so the Quebec Council for the protection of patients says. It's ready to go to court on this one as of Sunday evening. Eighty four thousand six hundred and ninety nine cases of covid nineteen in Canada with six thousand five hundred and fifteen deaths. I'm Jordan Youth Rawlings and this is the big story. Sarah much heads. Ida is the work and wealth reporter for the Toronto Star. She frequent guest on this podcast and now she has a podcast as well. Her new show is hustle. It's about the David versus Goliath battle. For Workers Rights in the GIG economy and episode two drops today Hazara high. You told us about this podcast when we had you on a couple of months ago and you've been putting the whole thing together. I guess well. The landscape has been shifting dramatically. So why don't you just kind of take us way back to the beginning and tell me about the GIG economy and food aura in particular When you first began this project which is a little over a year ago. Yeah that's right. It's sort of the May year anniversary of reporting on this story and there is really being so many twists and turns over over the course of the year. Some of which we sort of new would come a big battle at the Labor board an effort to try and unionize food aura careers. And then some that were just totally unanticipated. Obviously picked the pandemic being the major one there. So it's been a. It's been a really interesting. Year of following wet was really a unique kind of first attempt to change working conditions for workers in the GIG economy. Which I think is a word that we're all familiar with and we're so used to using APPs to get an uber left or order a meal to our doorstep but you know often. We don't interrogate what is happening behind the scenes. And so that was sort of the inspiration for taking a deeper dive into what the realities of this kind of work are like a new followed a group of food or careers for a year. Just tell me about them. I mean who are they? How did they meet? What are they like? Yeah so Fidora careers are really a diverse group of workers in the city. You know we've all probably seen them on their bikes with a big pink Fedora. Bag on the back or food or a jacket But they're not just cyclists. They're also drivers who go around the city delivering meals and I think a lot of people kind of assume that Workers doing this kind of job are often like young college students especially downtown a lot of the folks that you'll see on their bikes are are younger people but the reality is that the workforce when. I started meeting. Carriers was so much more diverse. You know a lot of drivers who are working in more suburban areas. Are you know New Acadians? Were supporting their families and haven't been able to find work in in their field. You know it's people who really do this as a full-time job is their career. Really They've been doing it for years And I think that the kind of overwhelming feeling that I sort of got from from talking to careers over. The course of the past year were just the fears and concerns around the protections on the job and a sense that this is a job that has really kind of fallen through the cracks that disentitlement workers from a lot of supports that many people take for granted. I think most fundamentally is a job where many express expressed just feeling like. There was a lack of respect and and one career Chris Williams who was involved in the Union drive. Kind of summed up why careers started organizing and trying to change that the broader issues around health and safety wages and dignity. And all those kind of stem from this other issue which is Fidora's misclassification of their couriers calling them. Independent contractors instead of employees or dependent contractors and that misclassification allowed them to avoid taking any responsibility for carriers. You talked about that kind of the goals of forming a union and one of them with dignity. Why is that so important? It's the hardest issue to define by in some ways. It's the most important careers have value. And I think it's the most important because that's personally by the way I think it's the most important because I think it's the one that justifies everything else like. That's why wages are important in many ways for me is because it's hard to live a dignified existence if your wages are two or uncertain if you don't know whether you'll make your daily quoted today or not and obviously health and safety connects to dignity because it's hard to be now when you're wearing constantly about your health you know it takes a toll it takes an effect. I want to explore that a little bit more but I I find the idea that we can talk about. These jobs is having fallen through the cracks kind of crazy. 'cause can you give me a sense of the scale of the GIG economy and Canada because it's everywhere right? Yeah anything I think

Why Is Plankton Our Tiniest Unsung Hero?

"One of Earth's unsung heroes is also among its tiniest plankton. A single celled algae. It's barely visible to the eye. But it contributes to some of the world's most important resources it's essential to the food chain. It's a main supplier of oxygen and it's the fuel that keeps our cars running and our homes heated these organisms. No bigger than a human hair float. The sunny upper parts of the Ocean. The two main types of plankton phytoplankton and zooplankton support one another phytoplankton and organism so small. The millions can fit in one drop of water produces its own energy through photosynthesis accounts for nearly half of all photosynthesis on the planet zooplankton which are tiny animals in. Crustaceans like Copa Pods. Along with other small fish and marine creatures eat phytoplankton. Then become food for bigger fish and so on up the food chain from seals dolphins virtually every creature in the Ocean. Each either plankton or an organism. That depends on plancton in a David versus Goliath. Battle filter feeding baleen whales like the humpback rely on tiny organisms. Such as plankton and Krill. A filter these whales take huge gulfs of water than use their tongues to push out liquid. So foods like Krill. Plankton remain right. Whales also swim up and mouthed through plankton filled waters. They trapped the plankton and third tongue. That pushes the organisms down their throat but plankton role in the food doesn't stop in the ocean polar bears and seabirds rely on Plankton. Fueled meals like seals and fish. Even humans. Count on fish and therefore plankton to survive Americans loan eat around fifteen and a half pounds or about seven kilos of fish and shellfish per person per year. That's a whole lot of plankton. Plankton itself is making. Its way toward dinner tables. It's not common in restaurants yet. But on Angelina and Nuno Mendez. Both shafts of Michelin starred restaurants in Britain added Plankton to a special event menu in two thousand thirteen. This included delicacies. Like a plankton cocktail and plankton risotto. Leon told the UK newspaper Metro. It's velvety dry. Before mixing it with liquid silky ones mixed oily an elegant pungent on the nose yet subtle and leaves a long finish in the mouth while it's still wearing restaurants. Plankton is slowly catching on. According to fine. Dining lovers plankton producers Spanish agriculture company Phytoplankton Marino are growing microalgae for human consumption and one chef even tried his hand at Phytoplankton bread. Plantains earthly contributions go beyond the food chain. Marine plants like FIDO PLANKTON KELP and the plankton. Pretty seventy percent of Earth's oxygen in fact pro chloro- caucus type of phytoplankton produces the oxygen for one out of every five breaths a human takes and IDA plankton superpowers. Don't stop there. Not ONLY DO THEY HELP. Produce Oxygen through photosynthesis phytoplankton take carbon from the atmosphere during the process of living and store it in the ocean. They die which ultimately helps curb climate. Change this is similar to the process. Trees used to store carbon in leaves since photosynthesis consumes carbon dioxide. The carbon is basically stored in each plankton. A one group of scientists found that FIDO plankton incorporate up to forty five to fifty billion tons of inorganic carbon into their cells and that petroleum. We used to fuel our cars. It's made reprocess. The dates back to ancient seas and also involves that tiny superhero of an organism plankton when plankton die they sink to the bottom of the oceans. Here debris settles on top of them and chemical reactions transform the materials into waxy kerogen and Bittermann a black tar. That's one of the main ingredients of petroleum the carriage and also undergoes further changes as it heats and it becomes what's known as crude oil or if temperatures are even hotter natural gas plankton may be essential but the small organism is also a little bit trixie scientists too long struggle to accurately predict fido plank to numbers and growth rates. But that changed in two thousand five thanks to Nasr's satellite observations and thus reported that scientists can figure out phytoplankton numbers based on how green water is when phytoplankton get stressed by cold water. They become less green phytoplankton. Rich waters become greener as conditions and growth rates improve. Oh and by night. Plankton filled water conglo through the organisms bioluminescence electric blue green red or orange researchers estimate phytoplankton makes one percent of all of Earth's biomass. That's the total mass of organisms. But that number is dwindling study published in the journal Nature in July of twenty ten showed that gradually warming ocean waters have destroyed some forty percent of earth's phytoplankton since nineteen fifty whether we know it or not all. Humans rely on this micro algae. That's why a forty percent decrease or more is worrisome.

Were Turtles Once the Size of Cars?

"Express. Look them to brainstorm a production of iheartmedia. Hey Rain Stuff. Lauren BOCOM here. Some of our favorite animals used to be bigger. The giant beaver of the Pleistocene was the size of a black bear. And the titanic. Boa was a snake longer than school bus and as big around as a tractor tire. There were hippo sized wombats humongous C- Scorpions and birds of prey. Size of small jets. We still have some giants today like the Blue Whale. The organism currently living on earth is a fungus that stretches some two point four miles. That's three point. Eight kilometers underground in Oregon but newby research published in February of Twenty Twenty in the Journal. Scientific advances beef up our picture. A stupendous geographic as a giant freshwater turtle the size of four door sedan which lived in the coastal wetlands of South America. Between five and ten million years ago before the Amazon River was formed. The study found that the turtle was one hundred times heavier and its closest modern relative and had the largest campus. Or Shell of any turtle ever known this whopping two thousand five hundred pound. Goliath. That's one thousand. One hundred and fifty kilos was also ready for battle. Some campuses were tricked out with front facing horns sitting on both sides of their head.

Their shells were also covered in big scars and puncture marks suggesting a few things about dependence.

How Hedonism Can Change Our Food System

"That'd be surprised to learn that there is a major monopoly when it comes to seeds globally over a third of all seeds are in the hands of just three companies in this mini episode Dr I'm in sits down with mastermind chef and regenerative agriculture advocate Dan Barber together they discussed the importance of seeds why Dan supports a hedonistic approach to changing the way we out there some of the biggest problems we have are are solvable by actually rethinking how we grow food and that's really what you've come to his chef as solving the problem of hedonism you have to go back to the farm and the seed and the soil grow food empowering message I want to go into the seed coat anything permit it because most people don't understand that there's a seed monopoly out there that the centralization of seed creation production and the selling seeds is happening at scale globally and is undermining local farmers and food producers all over the world and most of them around the world are women and small holders or formal what you just said is a front page New York Times story and I don't know why this is the the the seed industry is now consolidate the point that any new variety of seed that has developed sixty eight percent sixty eight percent is in the hands of three companies Nearly seventy percent of the future of our food is in the hands of three companies choose Monsanto and while Monsanto has just been bought by the by Barry there's dupont and then there's Kim China so there's there's three big players now I mean next time we talk that might be too but that is a frightening reality because because if you if you do and I think you should look at seeds as the blueprint for the whole system then you're talking about these companies controlling the system is that just a see that doesn't taste good at I number it's a blueprint for how you're supposed to farm and that's what scares me is that you're you roll out everything from the amount of acreage that should go on the where it should be grown you know forget rotations it's not in that but that whole baked all the way to the processor is what we're talking about that's how baked in it is that's a monopoly knowing what what I find most interesting is that the three companies we just mentioned are not seed companies chemical companies yeah they're creating seeds to sell their close right in like the it's what roundup ready sees the cause and what incentive do you have in that scenario to create a strong seed that doesn't need the chemical intervention I yeah there's not and that's where it's the David and Goliath story it's like that's crazy and people don't understand that because there's so much mixed messaging and because people don't think of food as as C. Driven you know we think too much of it actually as farm and Soil Germany even though guy we should be thinking more about small farms and diversified Zim biodiverse farms in soil and regenerate farms their all important but the seed is the blueprint for how that stuff gets into play and that's where that's why went to the seeds because you can you can have the best farmer like this Guy Klaus Martins mentioned the being I went to visit the most the best rotations the most regenerative and biologically diverse soil if you ever see that doesn't have the genetics to be expressed than what are we talking about you cannot have a delicious Haute or a delicious carrot that has is a bad seed grown in bad soil probably wasn't grown locally probably wasn't picked the right moment none of those things can happen and have a delicious jaw-dropping the experience it's impossible it's so it was beautiful as it when you focus on hedonism it solves the world's problems healthier is a soil that's tickets movement I think it's because while it may seem fringy or esoteric or on the margin it actually is putting a crack in and the whole agriculture system in crack in our thinking about food and when you combine that with these other huge transfer seeing which is the decline of our health the species and the obesity and diabetes epidemics and the decline of our environment and the climate change were experiencing and all the economic burden that comes from that I mean Z.. Global problem that has solutions but they start at the farm and have to rethink that it and really appreciating it through truly great food truly great flavor is one one waited to up end the paradigm that we have now we are now going out to eat more and more and this isn't just white tablecloth residents down for an experience that is unique to the region and and that's where the power of the culture comes into play we have to breed for that and that's what we're trying to do because that's also where the healthiest seeds are gonNA come from the culture but the environment what is specific about the region soil and micro-climate that will make this seed is fits all I want the seat to work the exact same in New York California Michigan Texas Canada Mexico India China and that Boyer the dumbed down the genetics to do that that much I know and flavor is just tamped down everything has tamp down but my point is if you eat the diversity that's required in the organic system you not only have this incredible array of flavors and nutrition at your disposal but you also have the regeneration of the soil which is true sustainability so that's I just think the ticket is this is this deliciousness and this you celebrate Tori hedonistic look at food which is so interesting because that's what cuisines and cultures have taught us over time for thousands of years seeds were saved and exchange as part of community self-preservation sadly between nineteen o three and nineteen eighty three we lost an astonishing ninety three percent of our unique seed varieties this resulted in more than just a lack of selection at the market seemed diversity compliments soil diversity and unique seed varieties allow farmers our chance at a productive harvest this doubles as a form of insurance if one crop doesn't grow as hoped there are others to fall back on Conventional Agriculture Embraces Mono Culture meaning one crops may be grown over thousands of acres and then the same thing is growing again after harvest this depletes the nutrients in the soil and puts the farmer at risk should think threatened that particular crop it also perpetuates a farmer's reliance on government subsidies by cultivating seeds based on flavor and variety and supporting growers who were passionate about regenerative agriculture not only will our food tastes better but we will begun to shift food system and exciting and positive new

He knew what other customers wanted to second. He newest competition. I thought it could outrun the smaller guys okay.

Google was kind of the biggest existential threat in two thousand and seven drew in his co founder arash ferdowsi one funding from the fame seed accelerator y combinator even so they still had to face sceptical investors investors would tell me that hey you know. This is a really competitive space. There's a lot of dead companies here. You're probably going to get crushed by the big guys as a founder you. You're the number one advocate for your product or service. When someone tells you you're going to be crushed. You need to come back at them with exactly why they're wrong especially if the person interrogating your idea is a potential investor drew's response was not what you usually hear from an impassioned and founder who's company's prospects have just been thrown in doubt now is like yup. I agree with all that this probably is a graveyard. We probably will get crush by the big is that's okay at least not have to carry around a thumb drive anymore. Don't be fooled by drew glib response. He didn't actually i plan on getting crushed. Despite the odds he was clear on his advantage. He was singularly obsessed with his product and he had very little to lose. If we build something useful that has value worst case scenario we build something awesome we saw the super interesting problem google comes allergy drive other people come knocking. We tell the company built something else. That sounds pretty good to twenty four year old. Living in an apartment afforded drew knew that one of his advantages was his youth his naievety his fearlessness the fact that he had very little to lose an even a modest success would be a big win more experienced entrepreneurs. I would bring a different set of advantages. The point is know what yours are initially thought he was at a disadvantage when it came to acquiring on users so we did what many founders try when breaking into a field to partner with goliath tried to partner with big companies and we'd go you know big p._c. Manufacturer 'cause. I'm like well. Maybe dropbox isn't something that you're going to go fine. Maybe it's something that just is pre installed on your computer who knows because we didn't continue bill to acquire large number of customers for freer. We've run out of early adopters but true soon realized the strategy came with a huge huge cost they would come in with cavalcade of middle managers and they spin your wheels for a long time and by the end of the day these companies are gonna do you any favors and so the idea a startup partnering with big company ninety nine point nine percent of the time just ends up in a bunch of wasted effort and can kill the company. If you're really unfortunate you actually get the deal and then you get spun around around by this massive machine. The spin cycle of middle management takes energy that could go into generating ideas innovation and forward momentum mm. It's something that many large companies.

"Angelina was the target right in case in case of so why night for Angelina? Yeah. It really not probably at least we've seen Evangelina in a long time probably thing for her. Yeah. Yeah. But I think that you're always you never are just thinking of one idol you're thinking like what if there's ten idols out there? So I think if Angelina was the target you would not necessarily steal her. You don't want her playing another. I ate like just just that'll okay? All right. We'll take a question from James. Do you guys think now with the players knowing where to look for the the the producers will come up with different locations ideas? Besides the challenges to hide immunity idols make it more difficult to find more than one. I don't know. I mean, we've seen idols the hidden some different places we had the merge Eitel. So Carl's advantage sort of a nontraditional idle fine. But I don't think we're gonna reinvent the wheel here. Ten f. Episode into David versus Goliath, they want they want to be found. Idols are fun. They make a change create opportunities change the power dynamics of the game. So I don't think they would try to make it really obscure for someone. What do you think? He didn't go to bring back hints. I really miss the hints. You know, like mysterious clues Nick and Davey, basically found a hint last week. Right. Right. But that was sort of like it was like a map they used to have every week. They would become a little more clear. Yeah. I guess I mean, that's sort of like a bunch of episode of leading up to one idol. I think in one episode. I mean, how many do we wanna see hints to the idol? I think that the show wants them to want them in circulation. They want them to play. They don't wanna have a tribal council with his no idle threat being talked about because it makes a very open and shut case. Yeah enough. This is a good question. From from Zach is it unfair that only a few players know of the existence of the nullify or in the game. How does this compare to the? Surprise fourth-place fire. Making twist during survivor heroes vs healers versus hustler. So Stephen should there be an argument where that if an idol is going to be in the game should Jeff Probst at the start of the season on day. One say, hey, everybody, guess what this season there will be an idol nullify or at some point. I used to be very much in the camp of if an advantage exists that can do something is completely unfair for everyone. Not to know what the powers of are. I've really come around to the idea that life isn't fair survivor in particular isn't fair. It's not a fair game. You know, there's a lot of random stuff that happens. Twists happen new things. Enter the game. I think maybe it used to be like a more fair game back in the day. When there was there were fewer of these things, and it was fine. More boring to lack of fairness is just part of the DNA. Unfortunately, it's not a completely fair game. Yeah. Would it be more fair? Certainly would it be less fun in terms of the TV probably? So I think you're writing the balance, and I don't know if you're going to be able to really reverse that trend. Yeah. Someone like, Dan he playing this. There's there's so much luck. And there's so much chance that goes into this game. Anyway, even it's very concession from the idea of like who you're being cast with are. You wanna try with people who are like you. Are you not on a tribe with people who are like, you know, you have people who are you're going to be your friends or they'll going to like h you and just the very core of that is somewhat unfair premise and just have to kinda ride it out you try to minimize the risk and maximize all you can do is minimize unfairness and minimize your own susceptibility and your risk. And then just accept what happens, Dan like, there's nothing he can do about this. Okay. Let's do another two or three questions here with Steven fish back. So he can get back to trimming the bird to get ready for tomorrow. Let's take this one. From Tiffany does the nullify our work as a concept. I didn't it wins.

"Merge here in survivor, David versus Goliath on a little upset that my made the merge. The jury didn't happen. Yes. Nicole did predict somebody would make the merge, but not. Make the jury kind of crazy prediction to make it did not come true. Yeah. Okay. But Nicole's winner pick Dan still alive out there. Still allies hanging. Are you feeling okay? About him. His name got thrown out last night. He saved himself. I guess I'm trying to be positive. Ok to idols is to idols. Not sure if he knows how to use them hanging in there. Okay. Hanging in there and his pants. What does that mean? Aduls? Okay. All right trying to keep it together. The I try to keep this a serious show. Somewhat serious. He put him in his pants. I didn't put them there. Okay. Call. We have had some great podcasts already, Stephen. And I got into everything on the survivor know at all about that vote. What did you think was going to happen at the tribal council? It was kinda crazy. But I was pretty sure that Elizabeth is going home you felt confident mostly because I was spoiled onto. Okay. So that that'll help that'll do it. I spoke with Elizabeth this morning on the exit interview podcasts, and that she was she was really fired up. Yeah. I bet she's really I didn't get a chance to ask too many questions. She was just she was kinda shot out of a cannon and love that. I love it. But I had a lot more more questions that I wanted to get to. So I feel that I didn't get into everything I wanted to talk about with Elizabeth well, then you got to invite her back on well, I would love to either. I mean, I think that she was a big character on the show that she was very fun. And she is who she is while I don't think that that is the best in terms of gameplay. I appreciate that. In my TV characters, you know. I don't feel like she's trying to necessarily give you something that she's not, and that's good casting and find finding Lisbeth and getting her on the shell. But did rub. Some people the wrong way Karl especially. Not a ton of love lost between Elizabeth and Carl. Yeah. Who was my winter pick? And he's looking he's hanging in there hanging in there. He's got drunk last night. Now will I thought that you could relate to that being drunk? I was I was drinking some wine last night when I was watching and Carl he had a couple of beers. And then started telling everybody that would listen. Hey, let's throw it out Elizabeth which ultimately did go with said a little bit poisoned goes a long way tomorrow on the podcast. I will be speaking. With the mayo jar LA LA mic Myer, Anna. We'll be here. I don't know why you have to say that at Nick Myer ano- is going to be here to get into all of the feedback from survivors of first episode after the merge Nick was a big help in your birthday amazing race. You was why what did he do? I was in correspondence with him throughout the entire time. You really help. He's a good guy. Very excited to have him back year for for this. My my original idea was I wanted Nick to come up here and host a podcast with the co host. And then we were talked to a guest. But then I felt like that the guest would be offended that they had to share their podcast with Nick everybody getting offended these. I look, I don't know. I don't know navy some that maybe we'll find a guest somebody down the road this. Hey, I don't mind being having a joint interview between you and Nick benefit was a woman, and it was video they wouldn't mind being interviewed by I don't know. I don't think you should speak for all women on that. You might be on an island with that one. So we'll we'll say. Well, I'll talk about it tomorrow on the feedback show with Nick, but we're gonna call Callan in just a moment..

"Put them together. Yeah, I mean, get black, isn't there? So I don't know. But yeah, I mean, it's as close as you can get burdening his new nickname. Yeah, now she'd be points to that one. Okay. Do you think that John Hennigan is doing well, like I didn't seem to be annoying anybody. I mean, he's not the school camp when seems annoyed by. All of his name, which would be I think the only thing you could get annoyed at right now, right? I feel like I mean, he lost a challenge, but that was a whole Goliath tribes float. As I said, making a very stupid decision. So I feel like he's good. Yeah, let's just put this in our pocket, giving a bunch of nicknames to yourself. Seems good giving a bunch of nicknames to all the other people on the tribe seems not as good that seems to get on people's nerves. I would love to. We're getting my quiet to all of them by pop culture titles. We'll get John Hennigan to give them all life zyypah nicknames, and like we'd le- sexual racist, politically, incorrect nicknames. I want to be on the Trump. I knew dick wants to be on that tribe. He really wants nickname. Okay. Let's talk about hot cap. Dan. Dan, we, we got to learn a lot about Dan in this episode and a lot of it. We got to hear about Dan's origin story about what what it's like to be Dan, how, how he found himself as a Goliath in bloom fat. Dan. It's not like we never had the confidence walk around here probably say yes, I'm glide, but now the most beautiful girls tell me I'm very good looking. Florida, Dan. All right. Now, Dan does seem to be the one person that survivor is acknowledging that he was a David day. He's the first person ever to cross the line from being David to Goliath that jobs you come back, you can't. You can't go back, but and Dan also that that fat Dan was not a Goliath fat. Dan was David fat. Dan, I saw. I never had the confidence walk around here and proudly say that, yes, I'm glad he bad things happen to fat. Dan, the weather's always bad. Yes. But now the quiz, yes, he gets the only one Chizzy point and now he is a Goliath and women and beautiful women tell him how good looking. He is. Yeah. I mean, it's an impressive transformation. I love that. He also, you know, he was like, this doesn't usually happen to me with the sherman's wasn't expecting it like you were talking about it in the preseason. And also, you know, he comes up to CARA and he's like, you're my kryptonite. Yes. He also said that to Josh, though, I feel like he was just holding onto that pick up line until we could. Said that Josh Wigley was his kryptonite. No, he told Josh that Caroline's is kryptonite, but I like what you said way better. I wish I wished I pull that clip right away. So, yeah, so he ends up meeting Kara and has this conversation with her. Blonde and beautiful. Yeah. Hey, what kind of what kind of girls do you like a blonde and beautiful. Yeah, right up my. He says that car is right up his alley, a number of times also. Yeah, I don't like the sound of that. I don't know what it is, but I don't like it like most like what Pat said. I'm like, I don't like it don't know why I just do it. Yeah. So Dan and Danny Kara, the two goliaths. Now if two goliaths get together and they have a child, the child is autumn adequately Goliath or could be a David. No, I think the China's automatically Goliath, so it seems like Elias is a lot of like your upbringing and stuff. I feel like if David and Goliath, oh my God, what if a David and Goliath go together, what would the child be? Baby could come out of the way my God. Yeah, that's intriguing. Now could to David's have a baby and it would be Goliath. Is that possible? I don't think so. No. No, I think I think that everything will be horrible for that child wherever my mother was a David. My father was David. Oh my God. Oh my God. Everything is not awesome. Have you got for that poor poor child? Yeah. This was also from Dan in Kara talking..

"Hello, everybody and welcome back to our survivor. David versus Goliath preview didn't have that many things to say about. Here's the guy who is whatever from David versus Goliath, but I am here with the first lady of podcasting, please welcome back to the podcast, the great Goliath of my life call sister in a call. How are you? I'm good, but I'm pretty sure in slam down. They don't allow podcast podcast would be slammed land. I, I would be just slammed right out of slam town. Yes. And here we are in a call we are, but days away from survivor David versus Goliath. We, of course, do this podcast. You and I have been together. I believe this is the seventeenth time that you and I are getting together to play on. Well, yes, I should be so lucky to get this seventeen times. I look forward to that day, but Nicole, we are here to preview the cast of survivor thirty seven which is, but only days away Wednesday night, we'll be the premier ninety minutes survivor David versus Goliath. Of course, this was not how we drew the plan up here for the survivor. Thirty seven preseason. And as many of the listeners know, either from following the big brother coverage or from social media that life got in the way here. Here in these last couple of weeks that Nicole, and I had gotten some really terrible news last week and very unexpected. -ly Nicole mom passed away last week and we have been in New York and with Nicole's family, and so for the call to make the time to even do this podcast with me is such a amazing testament to her commitment, and I really wanna say, Nicole, thank you for taking the time to talk about this nonsense with us after everything that you've been through here in these last ten days or so my mom would want the nonsense to go on. Yeah. Well, she, I think got a kick out of it. We spent a lot of time with her over the summer. She visited us for about two months over the course of the summer. Obviously, we had no idea that any of this was. Coming and she'd just come back home a couple of weeks ago, and we got this very unexpected news last week. And so this has really been a completely shocking event and we're just doing our best to pick up the pieces here with Nicole's family over these last a week and a half or so..

"Tell you how the players responded in the moment with thunderous applause. Thanks in no small part to the gigantic survivor David versus Goliath banner that unfurled behind the contestants at just the right time. Before long, the enthusiasm became something else. The David tribe consisting of ten men and women who are quote unquote used to proving people wrong and defying expectations were thrilled with their designation almost without exception. The opposite was true of the Goliath drive. A group pro describes as ten strangers with one thing in common winning and being used to having the advantage to squash their opponents. If Probst expected chest something from the purple buffed goliaths he didn't get it at least not easily. It required some time, some finesse and a healthy back and forth between the goliaths before they. Ultimately came around their place in the survivor food chain, more less at first the back and forth was a matter of words alone. In time. It became a matter of action after several minutes of opening banter, the survivors were thrust into the first battle of the game designed to embody the season's theme. Here's the premise of the opening challenge in which the tribes are playing for a day one shelter building. It begins with the lions who are tasked with selecting two champions from their own ranks while also selecting who they perceive to be the to quote unquote, weakest members of the David drive. The four players will then compete in a two v to obstacle course. One that's essentially designed by David's designated weaklings to be clear. The sprawling challenge occurring entirely on the cargo ship was built and designed by the brilliant John cure Hoffer and his team. But it's a challenge built for customization with three distinct. Ages that each have three distinct ways forward, not only did the David get to decide which path is there's. They also get to select the path of their enemy. Put another way Goliath chooses the gladiators while David picks the weapon, no spoilers on the results except for this, the way the challenge plays out is physical fierce and flat out fun..
