Apple reportedly steps up effort to build Google search alternative
"Financial times ran a piece saying that apple is working on an alternative to Google search an interesting story. It's an interesting idea. According to the paper apple is stepping up efforts to develop its own search technology as us anti-trust authorities threatened multibillion dollar payments multibillion dollar payments. Google makes secure prime placement of its engine on the iphone already. There's so much about this story that's fascinating to me. It looks like first of all apple. Search engine is already running. Although it's not really a search engine exactly. The financial times says when people type in request for info from the home screen in iowa. Fourteen apple has started showing its own search results looking directly to websites rather than going through a third party in iowa. Fourteen today view. The report says the operating system shows apple generated list of search suggestions rather than the google results these results include auto compete style. Excuse me auto. Complete style. suggestions generated by apple showing that it is learning from its one billion users common queries. Okay see i kinda just want to read the whole story to you and then go back. Point-by-point it's the financial times. Why don't we start there. It's the financial times so of course. They're concentrating on the money. Part of it as if apple just started doing this yesterday. They keep saying that the doj is suing. Google for anticompetitive behavior at the center of that suit or near. The center of that suit is the fact that google pay somewhere between nine billion then twelve billion dollars a year to be the default search engine in safari. Everybody says for iphone. But it's for safari right. The doj in the past few weeks at right were suing. And i know we've known that that was coming for a while. But it's not like falcons can suddenly turn on a search engine from nothing. of course they haven't turned it on nothing Two and a half years ago. The got john john andrea. I'm sure i'm pronouncing that wrong He was the head of google search supposedly. They said it was to Increase their artificial intelligence capabilities and siri virtual assistant but he also brought eight years of experience. Running the world's most popular search engine the financial times. Points out. I mean sorry. It doesn't mean that apple is in creating an alternative to google i. I'm going to go ahead and keep reading. And then we'll i should have read the whole thing right. Experts financial times talked to Some of whom used to work for google. Say it wouldn't cost that much for apple to do this. And that apple has hired the talent to do it. That apple could do it because you can't just go in license somebody else's search technology if you're going to be an alternative google. I did not know until. I was reading the financial times story here and this could explain. Why dot go. I love duck duck. Go doug goes. Was privacy focused search engine and you can go there instead of google and you can type in your queries. And they're not being tracked and that's great They rely on being. It turns out their licensing beings technology. Now still your information as dang between you and duck duck go. It's not going anywhere. It's anonymous all that stuff. It explains why duct that goes results. Aren't necessarily as good as you might want. Duck tuck duck goes results to be apple. Can't just skin being. They can't just skin duck. Oh right they have to come up with something better if they're going to compete with google but not everybody thinks they're going to compete with google. Dan wong associate professor of business at columbia business. School said it would be extremely difficult for apple to ever catch up. Go-goes advantage comes from scale. He said and the endless user feedback helps to tune results and identify areas of improvement. Google gets hundreds of millions of queries every minute from users all over the world. That's an enormous advantage when it comes to data surprising. No one apple declined to comment for the financial times all right. There's so much about this. That's interesting and also i think kinda wrong in what. The financial times is arguing first of all. They're saying that apple is doing this because they're worried about losing the twelve billion dollars nine to twelve billion dollars that up. A apple gets every year from google for being the default search engine. I use siri as often as i can. I know people who don't use siri at all. Google still spending nine billion dollars even if he does get better. Google spending nine billion dollars for apple would not be a waste of money because there are lots of people who are always going to google it. They're not going to ask siri for whatever reason. I know that. When i'm out of the store i don't ask siri because i don't like to talk in public. I don't like to you know. Spread my business around. If i'm worried about a search engine tracking me. I'm certainly going to worry about you. Know saying out loud the grocery store or well. That's the only place. I go now saying out loud to the grocery store what i'm searching for. Nobody else needs to know that. At that point i will start typing stuff in at that point. Is it google that i'm going to. I have set my default search engine to duck duck go and that is another thing that this whole of this seems to sort of ignore. I mean the fact that we do have choices at this point. And i would imagine that somebody at least at apple will go ahead and argue. That what google is playing for is placement because people are lazy or people like google or don't realize they change it even though apple has made it clear that yes you can. Google earth could still pay nine billion dollars a year and not lose their money even if apple gets better at what. It's doing now as far as apple trying to build a search engine. That's going to replace google. I don't think so. I don't think apple is trying to replace a bill. The search engine that everybody is going to go to. Because i don't think apple wants that kind of headache. I think all of this stuff about siri better and about apple's being better. I think all of that is true. I think what apple would like is instead of going to any search engine you pick up your you ask a question you get your answer not kicking over to the. Here's what i found on the web. Not thinking oh. I need to go to google or i need to go to ulta vista wherever it is. I need to go to look up stuff. I need to ask jeeves by. Golly i think that's the part of this whole thing. That actually excites me. The most the idea that my virtual assistant could become more of an assistant unless a virtual thing that it could become a a source that i turned to to ask questions and get answers

The First Days: Genesis
"Audience. For Genesis, is crucial and particularly when we get to these first days, we've covered this a little bit already, but it'd be good to just circle back so that we make sure that the audience knows This is who the original audience is for the book of Genesis and so when we're talking about the book of Genesis, we're talking about kind of. Volume one of a five book series called the Pinta toot the first five books of the Old Testament Genesis Exodus Leviticus numbers, deuteronomy these books are entrusted. These words are revealed to Moses who is now the representative rescuer and leader for the people of Israel, and they are getting this revelation on the outside of Egypt. They have been rescued from Egypt they have been brought to Mount Sinai and goddess forming then to take them in to Canaan to the promise land that is the original audience. This is post exodus Israel hearing from y'all way creator of the world. So they're hearing a creation story. That predates them significantly, it goes all the way back not just before their time in Egypt but before father Abraham all the way back back back back to the beginning and why is this crucial for us to understand when we start looking at genesis one through eleven that this is who the original audience is. Yes. So one of the reasons Moses writing is because he wants to prepare that they're in that in between space between they've left and where they're headed and so he writes these first five to give them roots and shoots. He wants to root them in. This is where you came from and he wants to give them shoots. He wants to give them something that will hold them steady. In the place that they're going so it's it's the history and the law is the combination that you're gonNA. See there and we talked about in a previous episode about the sort of the classic worldview questions that that these eleven chapters in particular are asking and answering, and as you pointed out Kyle I think that they're not just asking and answering those questions in a vacuum. So those questions of. Where did I come from? Why am I here what's the problem? What's the solution those questions are being asked and answered within the context of where they came from and where they're headed so that they will understand why Israel is a nation set apart yeah. Yeah. That's really good and so. We the roots and shoots thing is that's very valuable. So the story is not just. Oh, you did. Okay. Great I am I. The only one here is not just add living. GOLLY shoot. Now. Yeah. I think that that's really good in it reminds me of something for end of the show friend friend of ours WHO's taught for us in different environments that roots and shoots. Things reminds me of what Jerry. Jones says jt you're gonNA love this quote. You remember it. If he says, your creation story determines the trajectory of your culture. The. Roots and shoots thing where like. Israel is receiving a creation story and jt through this word out in an earlier episode but it's important I think it's important. To capture this creation story, we could call that a cosmology. COSMOLOGY and they're receiving it in in a world of competing. Creation Stories competing cosmology. Jt isn't that right? Like Israel is not just they're not like Ginseng. Story in a vacuum. They're receiving the story in a world where there are other accounts of how this has happened at yeah. Just back up what is what is cosmos? Like? Why do we have the word cosmology? What does it mean? Are you asking me? Yeah, I'm asking you is used it so you should make him to find it. I don't know if he can but I'm pretty sure you know I'm just getting. Yeah. I mean it's just talking about the. Creation of the cosmos of the world like it's it's just a fancy way of talking about the creation account and how to make sense of who is the Creator? What is the creation? What is the purpose of the crater creation relationship? You'd say, yeah, absolutely I mean, in some ways, cosmology would be like theology cosmos is the world the Earth, right? So it's like study of the World Study of the Earth Account of the world words about the world whereas theology is words about God's when we're talking about cosmology or cosmology as we're talking about words about the world, the account of creation or how things came to.

Gottlieb says health officials "failed" White House in early COVID response
"Meanwhile, President Trump's former FDA commissioner, Dr Scott Gottlieb, told CBS's face the nation Sunday that the White House leadership was failed by health officials early on during the current virus during the pandemic. Look, I think in this respect the White House leadership was failed by health officials. We did not have a diagnostic in the field so we couldn't screen for it. We should have. We should have started working on that in January, and we over relied on a surveillance system that was built for flu and not for Corona virus without recognizing that it wasn't gonna be a sensitive in detecting Corona virus spread. As it was for Blue because the two virus has spread very differently. Those were two critical failings. Now you could say, Well, the president put those people in place. He's responsible. You could make the second order arguments around that, but I think ultimately the White House did not have the information they need to make decisions. Key function of agencies in the government to provide policymakers with accurate, actionable information. The White House didn't have it, and I had a lot of conversations with White House of this time period because I was concerned it was spreading here and I was pushing them on and they were. They were telling me over and over that they were hearing from top officials. From the agencies that they were pretty confident that it wasn't spreading here. I think when history looks back, that's going to be a key moment. That's what was going on over February. So godly, preparing to put the blame on health officials on Sunday late last week, though, when pressed on the president's words and actions in March, golly but spread the blame
Calls to boycott Netflix over French film Cuties
"A controversy brewing on Netflix. It's actually a pretty disgusting story. I remember I saw the trailer for this a couple of weeks ago, and I thought it was pretty gross. And apparently, it's It's worse than I thought. There's a movie that is now on Netflix. Called cuties. It's a French movie, They say it's a coming of age movie. But it's about 11 year old girls who apparently want to dance like strippers and dress like strippers in act like strippers and do and the parts are played by 11 year old girls. I haven't seen it. I haven't followed the controversy that closely but somebody who has joins us now it's Christian Toto, film critic and the proprietor of Hollywood in Toto, calm, It's t O T o If you're a conservative looking your way through the entertainment world, that's where you want to go. Welcome, Christian. Well, thanks for having me Thanks for coming back on the show. So cuties. The name in and of itself is a little bit gross, especially knowing what it is. But Explain the controversy. Well, it began with the advertising. There was a poster for the movie that show these 11 year old girls in sexy dance outfits and posing very provocatively. And, of course, that course an uproar. Understandably, so And Netflix that Oh, my gosh, I'm so sorry. This is an inappropriate The movie doesn't reflect us. But this is a very bad poster. Take the poster down with our apologies. And then the movie debuted. Ah, day or two ago, And now people are seeing it. I confess I have not seen the movie, but I've seen enough clip. That that poster Wasn't far off and that there is there's a scene going around Twitter. Gosh, well over a minute, and it basically shows these Three preteen girls in these very mature outfits doing dance moves like like a Miley Cyrus. Like a lover like someone you kill you pay. As an adult to see if they're in the movie. But the brought back the blowback to this I mean some of the reviews. It's one of those movies that this get it. There's a huge disconnect between what the critics say. What's believe in rotten tomatoes like 90% fresh, It's certified fresh and the critics have it about the people haven't about 6%, and it's telling in this UK telegraph headline. Cuties. Netflix Review a provocative powder keg for an age terrified of child sexuality Right there. They're admitting that this is largely about child sexuality. 11 year olds are they not? It seems very obvious. You know, Here's the thing. The movie and the director has said that she is trying to be critical of this cultural movement, and I appreciate that. I think you can tell that story. But he also think you can tell that story with a modicum of her strength. You don't need to see, you know, over a minute's worth of girls undulating to get the message. There are so many artistic ways that you could capture that without showing it aggressively in your face. You can do it in shadows. You could do it in snapshots. You could refer to it but not show it directly, so the fact that it's really on screen in your face force along Is gross and again, you know, I I'm a first Amendment guy. I don't want to censor art. But by golly, you can't see that This is inappropriate. I'm I'm aghast that there are so many defenders. There's apparently nudity of these girls, which again I think anybody who streams this movie should probably be We looked at with a jaundiced eye, but there's also they one of them takes a picture of the their private parts and posts it on line. It is and it's 11 year old. It's one thing if you had, you know, a young looking 20 year old actress playing this But to actually have really 11 year olds to this. It's bordering on child pornography, and they're like the state of Texas. The attorney general has been asked by a legislator there. To look into this. I'm curious. Reed Hastings is the CEO of Netflix. He's got a book out, so he's making the rounds. Hey, did a 10 minute interview. I believe yesterday with CNN. This didn't come up. Has Netflix commented on this beyond the poster would really doesn't reflect what's going on in the movie. They went radio silent initially. But then I believe yesterday they defended the film. So they're on record is defending this particular product. And by the way, you know, we talked all about diversity. And we need more diversity in our culture. And in many ways that is accurate, and I applaud that on some level for sure Don't want to discriminate anyone. Diversity within the film critic community. I'm a critic. I'm up on the right. To say that I'm a minority is can you name another one? But listen, there's about I'd say between five and 12 critics We're on the right and there are hundreds and hundreds who are left of centre and it shows in their report ties, so I don't think there should be a quota system. But if everyone is really concerned about diversity There should be Mork critics of prominence who are people of faith and and you are a conservative Jew who could call out something like it's kind of been the framing of the left defense of this movie Cuties. We're talking with Christian Toto film critic. The defense of this movie has been well as uptight conservatives, then that's almost why it seems like many of these critics like it is because People who aren't big fans of child pornography are against it. Yeah, Yeah, listen, we're living a tribal agent's left versus right. And if anything, even hints at that demarcation, it's game on. But you know, this is this is not been in. This has not been a secret. The movie screened it Sunday. I believe it may have won an award of some kind. I need to double check that. But, you know, listen, finances and very prestigious film festival, probably the most prestigious in the country, and critics have fawned over it. What if that say that the critics really just missed this. I've seen the quick. It's enough. It's really uncomfortable and again. That movie. From what I understand is being critical of this part of culture. And again. I have flaws that you could. You know, that's a message that could be out there. But as an artist, you can share things not share things. You can pull back. All sorts of ways to artistically captured this exact same I go, I go
Vanessa Branson on her latest book, One Hundred Summers
"Vanessa France, and welcome to the writers. Thank you. Thank you. Now of course, you'll family name is well-known because of the entrepreneurial success of your older brother recovered, and in this book you give us a wonderful portrait of the whole family going right back a couple of generations. Search should we start with your grandparents? Golly well, Kim I just state why I wrote the book in the first place because I think it's context utilizes why I wanted to go back and look at my family. I actually started writing it on the twentieth of January two, thousand seventeen. It was the morning of Donald Trump's inauguration and I was so thrown by. I was quite frightened actually, or we were all very fearful about what was going to happen and everything all my values and everything I felt I stood for being threatened by this man to power. And I wanted to I couldn't articulate why I felt so nervous. And I wanted to really ground all where all those values came. and. So by looking back, I wasn't gonNA rush by myself a tool I just wanted to ground where it came from. So I started back with the birth of my father he was born nineteen eighteen. And roll the sort of serendipitous. It was exactly one hundred years before I started writing the book, and there were these mighty seismic changes back in one, thousand, nine, thousand, nine, hundred. I wanted to serve slot the family into a historical context as well. Because the both sets of grandparents came from different worlds didn't they? Yes. Nothing. That was one of the things that I was excited to investigate. My father's family was really quite educated and very good fun actually and very playful. They weren't in the grammar school boys and they all went to Cambridge. And they were ventures and travelers and extraordinary. My my mother's family was more of middle class but I was very interested about the class in England as well and how we've always felt as a family now, quite sort of class less than I wanted to find out where that came from because I think they were quite horrible to your mother, I yes. Well, she was sort of show. Girl you can imagine I mean they were they were slightly snobbish. My grandfather was a high court judge in he wasn't landed. He didn't have a stately home, but he rented one and they had lots of staff and long drive and they did shifting with the right people and let's say and then my mom turned up and she was on the stage and I think they would rather said. That they're blue eyed boy they're DEB's delight as they called him at fallen for this rather so crazy. Well. described it herself as a flippity Japan but. Anyhow it was a very enduring marriage and Utah wonderful stories of the courtship and all the rest of it. It's very beautifully done, and clearly they had a huge amount of affection for each other. And for their children, how would you characterize your childhood? Well, it was sort of heaven really the with very little cash. My father wasn't very successful barrister in he was slightly forced into it by his father and. One of the defining characteristics of all of us which is really was really interesting to sort of nail is that we're all dyslexic and both my parents are dyslexic. They just found schoolwork in academia very difficult and my poor father was sort of shoehorned into being a barrister and he shouldn't have been. So he was there was never much cash around but. They were just sort good fund, my parents and. They both been through the war and I, think life was just to you know they'd seen such terrible things experience really quite a lot of hardship and they just wanted to live for the joy of life again and they gave us that in bucket foles and just embraced all K- also adventure and people and everyone was welcome and we had very very happy childhood action. It sounds like this wonderful big messy household with just lots of lots and lots of animals the countryside I mean does sound so much fun. Tell me about your siblings then well, my brother was born in nineteen fifty and I wasn't born until nineteen, fifty nine, and then we have assisted in the middle. and. We've sort of space do and Richard Got Adhd and he was very very energetic and rather than sort of repressed him I think my parents soon realized that I mean in Heaven Forbid Kids nowadays would be on Ritalin or something and they set him challenges and so my earliest memories were keeping Richard Busy sending him off on on really long bike rides and really difficult things to keep him occupied for the day and lots of mealtimes. My sister just lovely to me and. I wanted to be held on Halloween because of the things. We teased relentlessly and there were lots of sort of games but. Missed quite interesting. Now in my mom's still alive, she's ninety six and I'm sure a lot of people listening to this all recognize this but we all still fall into type as if we're still ten years old. And we'll. We'll want Mommy's attention you know, and we'll still play all roles and it's it's possible.
The Lifelong Gardener, Toni Gattone
"I'd love to start by having you tell listeners exactly like where you are in your garden life and practice what it looks like right now, your relationship to plants, oh? Golly. Well, you know like you I have my gardens never looked better. Because I'm home. I'm I'm not going out and so all the weeds are gone and we live in a very small piece of property in. Marin. County in the town of Lark spor-. and. We have to elevated raise beds we have about. Thirty. Containers. And Vertical Gardens. And they are all chock full. Of veggies and fruits. I've got a aspired apple tree was six different kinds of apples, which is very when you have a really tiny yard blueberries that are, oh my gosh. That's like the fifth year of of their life in containers and a we have more blueberries this year than we've ever ever had. So and I got of course I've got roses and ornamental season But I have to say the roses have become the bane of my existence in the garden because I'm always fighting black spun. what are you GonNa do it you need to hear you either GonNa live with it or you're going to pull them out. Right and I did I I did decrease them only got five rose bushes now. And they better behaved here. That's all I can say that's what I on when I go. Okay. You gave and where you are in Marin what what does own would that be sixteen, sixteen seventeen okay. All right. So you are you are cooler by quite a bit than than me and warmer in the winter and interesting I. I love the idea of the blueberries in containers, and of course, the vertical gardening and the raised bed gardening in the container gardening is all going to be part of what we're talking about. Give us though I wanNA. Go back a little bit because I think you have a really great gardening of history and story yourself that brought you to this love, and then the work that you're doing with this love, will you take us back to the people and places and plants that grew you into a garden and plant loving person Tony Well, I think the the great inspiration stare into my grandfather's backyard in Chicago. He was an amazing gardener I mean you could. You could eat it seemed like each blade of grass in his backyard was was healthy and. Vibrant. His roses I never saw any sign of disease anywhere and he had a very small but jury productive Vegetable Garden and I I always saw the joy that was on his face when he was sharing with us the flowers in the fruits of his Labor. And continued with my mom and my mom, and I had a beautiful. Relationship, we were like two old shoes we used to say. she she was very supportive of me and whatever I felt like I needed to do. It was like, okay great. You know one of the the pivotal moments in my life was the Loma. PRIETA earthquake. Because that year my father passed away and then when the earthquake happened. My Foundation was shaken to the core. Yeah. What year was that Tony Eighty Nine and. I made up my mind when I finally got on the ferry to come home and I could see San Francisco inflames. And I said, I don't WanNa do this anymore. I don't WanNa work in downtown. San Francisco. And I applied for an equity line on my home, and soon as that goes proved I, quit my job in downtown San Francisco and I sat in my garden say now what? And my garden gave me of the inspiration to start a business in the garden industry. I didn't know what I was going to do but. Eventually, I found my way to find beautiful products that I loved and manufacturers that I wanted to represent and then slowly, but surely I added. To My company and I would find the products that good a garden shows and find the products and train them, and they would go out. We would all go out and sell the products to nurseries and gift stores and hardware stores all over California. And I loved it. I loved it was so much fun. but eventually I, I lost my my passion for that it took twenty eight years but. I walked away from that and twenty eighteen so that I could you know focus on being a speaker and author?

Why Do Ladybugs Have Spots? Do Dragonflies Bite?
"We're talking about dragonflies and ladybugs. And we're going to be joined by someone. We've talked to before on an episode. We did about moths. I'm kept McFarland with a Remote Center Frigo Studies Research Biologist and I like to study insects and all kinds of other flying things. Why in the world do you like to study insects of all the creatures you could study? Well you know. I've studied birds and I've studied mammals, but insects to in my world. Everything you can think of. That's in the movies insects do it. They do strange things that we'd never imagined possible, and and it just excites me to go out there and find out what they're doing. Strange things like what lift something that would be like US lifting a car or leap tall buildings that kind of thing. Yeah. They're like the Superman the animal world, they can do all of things that we couldn't dream of Fahd of the sky for hundreds of feet. Fly Long distances. Long distances like three thousand mile sometimes longer than we never imagined swim underwater for long periods of time. I mean you name it. They do it so. The water and walk on the ceilings. Yeah, so it's just crazy things they do. There are so many kinds of insects estimates range between two million and thirty million different types of insects. If you count up the total number of these animals themselves, scientists think there are ten Quintillo individual insects on our planet. But we can't do an episode about all of them. Just think how long that would be. We're going to focus on to cool types of insects. You have sent us questions about dragonflies and ladybugs, but even those are categories of insects with lots of different species within them, as we'll find out more about later, but first. Let's dive into some of your questions. My Name's illegal. I live in Seattle Washington in my question is. Why do ladybugs have spots? Claire. I am six years old. I live in rent. Would Missouri and My question is how do ladybugs get their spots I Aria that result I live grateful or Kaleida it by question is how to ladybugs have spots well. Here's the interesting thing about ladybugs. There's a lot of different kinds of ladybugs and the ones that we usually think of are the ones that are red with black spots or sometimes a little white spots on them. And that represents maybe you. A quarter of the species of ladybugs, there's a whole bunch of other ladybugs that are black, Brown, red white, even some kind of other colors mixed in like yellows, and so the traditional thing we think of the ladybugs of the ones that are black and red, but there's all kinds of others that have all kinds of other patterns and colors associated with them how they get their spots. I'm not really sure how they exactly get their spouse, but one of the things is spots. Spots are the patterns are probably on them, so that is a warning to other insects or even birds that they might not want to eat them, because they might taste poorly, and so it's a way to defend themselves against being eaten by birds or other insects to some types of ladybugs have a certain number of spots and others have a different number, or could you know the same kind of lady bug lined up ten different individual bugs. You'd get ten different spot patterns. The answer is yes. It happens, both so there are lady bugs that have certain number of spots in evac through even named after that, so there's a native lady bug in North America called. The nine spotted lady bug, and it has nine actually, and there's the seven spotted lady bug, and it usually has seven spots. There's a twenty spotted lady bug, and you get the picture. There's different kinds of ladybugs that have different amount of spots, but sometimes within those groups they can have a variety of spots, so there's one. One kind of Lady Bug comes from Asia called the Asian ladybugs that's been introduced. It's been brought here in an outlives. North America and sometimes it can have almost no spots, and sometimes it can have maybe a dozen or more spots on it, so it's really variable. Compared to say, the nine spotted lady bug, which almost always has nine spots, and we have listeners and I think every continent. EXCEPT ANTARCTICA, we haven't gotten a question from Antarctica and do ladybugs also live on every continent except Antarctica. I'm pretty sure they are on every continent, except Antarctica. Yes, and that brings us to this question. Hello, my name is Hallelujah I live in. Rwanda CA golly. My question is. How many different types of ladybugs are there? There are over five thousand different species or types of ladybugs in the world. And as Kent said, it's not just the spots that vary, their colors can vary, too, but those colors are basically always there to warn predators that the lady bug will taste terrible now. Some of you are probably wondering why they're called ladybugs. Anyway or maybe you aren't even sure what insect were actually talking about. Not everyone calls them ladybugs for example. If you live in the United Kingdom you might call them, lady, birds or Ladybird Beetles and Kent says he actually doesn't like the name Lady Bug because they're Beatles, not

Seven Generations - With Karl Dockstader (Oneida)
"Hello and welcome everyone and we're so glad to have you today. Joining me is Carl docstater and just to give you a little background on this guy he's a member of the United. Nation, and he's the program called for the four year Fellowship Center about four years ago. He and a colleague of his started a podcast called one dish one Mike, and since then it's transformed into a weekly on air radio show, and recently he. He became a recipient of Canadian Journalism Foundation CBC. Fellowship for his. Outstanding Work I've been on his show before the ever since our show started. We've communicated back and forth, and finally it's my delight to introduce this man, and on top of that all he's an avid buffalo bills fan, so I would like to give a big severely to Mr Pro docstater You're very kind to Gaydos in the youngest log into low to Jota, what's the? What can I do? GEICO Ajayi? That translates to many Ms Carl. Just kidding There's there's a lot more in there. that I I like to introduce myself with Mitch official name is often as possible because our our language is under threat. I think that using any language like even if you only know Golly, even if you only know gateway when you're saying goodbye to someone or or something similar to goodbye, or or if you're seeing Jawa, thank someone. I think that every bit of language revitalization is is important, so so thank you for for having me on your show I have a gigantic fan. If you go into the archives, you can find an episode where we interview Andrew Shannon I may podcasting Betsy Andrew and I think that it's really just forty five minutes of meat gushing lick offend will. So but but you're worth it I mean it, it's it's really be concept. Your show that that you're doing at I'm I'm glad to be on for for something. Maybe a little outside of the box of avoid normally, so they are having beats danger. It's it's outside of the box, but i. feel like when we started the show. This is more of what we wanted. It's easy to talk about dead people because if you. You get something wrong well. They're not around to defend themselves. What's really hard for me? Is from a loving history and background is a lot of times. We try as hard as we can to point out. The the members of the six nations are still around today. There's still a vibrant part of our communities. They still contribute still here at not not like two or three of them left and on our show I have to. To purposely save the holding. The schone are instead of the haughtiness. SCHONE did and a lot of times we use the past tense. I I apologize to it now. You know when you're talking about past historical events that happens a lot, but we'd like to point out all the contributions that people have made in the past, and how the influenced our history and culture and society, and so it's just good to have somebody from today. Today that can can speak for today. I know you're just one person I. Know You don't speak on behalf of all indigenous people on the continent. I know you don't speak on behalf of everyone from the Oneida nation. You probably don't speak on behalf of your family either. It's good to have other perspectives because Caleb. I realized that we're limited in our scope. I wanted to have somebody come on. That could give me an. Update, but just what is Oneida culture like today? And what are the issues that your people are facing today? And then I also WANNA. Look towards the future a lot of times we get bogged down today's issues. Today's Oracle stuff, and as this podcast is recorded as different, but I realized that years from now decades from now hopefully, when people are still listening to you and me working back through the archives that you know we can, we can look forward and see what what does the future stand? What does the to row treaty mean for both our peoples in the future going forward. So that's a long winded. Introduction, BUT I want to turn over your Harlan just give you really open ended just give me a background about yourself and your upbringing. Yeah, thank you, thank you for the opportunity again. I think that what you said is probably key at. If if you're just tuning in if tuning in because of me than you've heard me, say this before if tuning into your recoil, ledges, mystery podcasts, and you're hearing me for the. The first time I think it is important that we're hitting on that concept. The Ngoni people are are still here and I, even like like I had to check myself I was helping my daughter my my nine year old at the time ten year old daughter. Do you a project for history? And it's it's difficult to sift through the history texts and to see them. Talk about how we were as people like, say we. We are as a people like we were still doing. Ceremonies were still. I'm literally trying to grow white corn, even as we speak like I'm. I'm sitting here. Thinking created rain last night because we're not something that their lives in a textbook sitting on sitting on a shelf somewhere, that's something that we want to bring a so having opportunity to come on with you today to to really remind people that can onto says about about living. Living History. History is something we're still living right now is super cool I. one of the reasons I like to get on. This side of the microphone is is that I don't have to talk about myself, so it's it's different since since I now you're the one that's technically behind the Mike but I mean I can say is that it's What it really pride myself on is is activity in my own community. I went and I volunteered tirelessly from a friendship center work at the forgery native. Friendship Centre by day. I volunteered there before I worked there I volunteered at the other friendship center in our region, the Niagara Regional Native Center and that for everything we do is indigenous people I. Think I think it's really evaluated on a on a community level and I. think that's something that we've actively done. Is that individuals? Success is just not the metric. That's not the measurement for for who we are as. at least in in the community circles that I that I hang out so so for me. My production into community was movement called idle no more if you will see American listeners after how how familiar they'll be with that movement, but there was an effort in in two thousand, twelve, twenty, thirteen to to really got environmental measures to take away protection from wire to fundamentally changed the relationship between the government and indigenous people. In four women stood up and said that we're not going to be idle anymore. We will be idle, no more and we need to. We need to put a stop to this. And our people got behind those women and all of our people. It felt like like there was a total consensus in our community that had an off and I saw the seismic shift almost ten years ago. Where people like we have to do something so so for me, that was almost may may rebirth into community I was I was just living regular life, and you know trying to trying to hold down a good job trying to buy a house and worrying about the things that normal people. People worry about and then. I saw this groundswell of activity in our community, and it really opened. My Eyes Act that we need to work together to federal sell change

He'd run into sprints before that winning one this year and finishing fourth in his debut at Belmont Park last July and while his sire quality road one multiple graded stakes at a mile and an eighth doctor posts never wanted longer than seven eighths of a mile. So I'm pretty sure that when trainer Todd pletcher and owner Vincent Viola learned that the Belmont stakes would be shortened from a mile and a half to a mile and an eighth. They were probably not to dismayed. Dr Posts next start might come in the Belmont and Soda Talk About Him to talk about the return of racing in New York and other related topics we welcome in the gate. The man who has the best seat in the House to watch Dr Post his rider the two time defending clips award winning writer Iran Ortiz Junior. Tell us about all that. He overcame in winning that race at Gulfstream. Well he John Hord. I is learning by racist Green Green. Like I'd have to stay on him and but he everything's good in the behin. He wasn't bitching horses. I gotTA using monitor be to keep their then. Golly talk was the intimidate. Then we get through then. What getting now because he was seeing the horse. And what's more comfortable for me to start going because I can ride then. Finally when he gets. Put THE HEAD IN FRONT. You just take off like he got some work. Your go no yet can be a nice sort down the road will. You've said that when he grows up a little mentally it'll help him now. What shows you that. He's not yet mature in his mind.

It's not too bad for me and I'm happy because like that. I'm okay to see my family. You know after I check from other also. I'm Don T my baby so I'm glad they do. They do hopefully they keep doing it their way to how challenging has it been to learn the different procedures that each track is taking to make sure that you follow all those safety and health rules.

Keeping Your Dream Alive with Drew Holcomb
"Today or conversation is with music city icon drew holcomb. And you may remember that. We talked to drew's manager Paul Steal a few weeks ago. But here's the thing you need to know about drew. He absolutely refuses to be limited by other people's labels yes? He's a killer singer and songwriter. And believe me you're GONNA WANNA listen to the end of this episode. But he's used that foundation of singing and songwriting to lay a platform for becoming an entrepreneur. An investor a business owner. The guys creative he's disciplined. He's an absolute anomaly. But all of these different roles and qualities they've come together to make for a pretty remarkable and outrageous life but as you will hear his path toward becoming one of Americana Music Most beloved and authentic figures. It was one that actually started over twenty years ago and it was birthed out of a tragedy. I played music all throughout high school. I was your classic like Gout. The Guitar Planning Life and Learning Songs and having fun just with friends. I didn't write a song until I was a junior in college. I went to a personal tragedy the summer after my junior year of high school at a younger brother special needs who passed away very unexpectedly. I was actually out of the country and music was sort of thing. Kinda got me through it so really for me. Music was this personal sort of healing anchor. Anchor exactly I've no thoughts of doing it professionally especially talented at that time. I don't think so. No no not really I mean I was. I was fine You know I always had a very sort of ernest. Hard-working like plow through it. Sort of ethic involved in scouts and was in the student body organization. And all the things you know at school. I Love School. I always student so I went to school to college with the intent of going to graduate school to study. History on my goal is to write books and be a history professor so that was the dream now somewhere along the way. My junior decided to go study abroad and I studied in Edinburgh Scotland and I didn't really know anybody so I took my guitar with me. You know that was like my main hobby was playing guitar and I just started writing songs like at night. I'd finish my work or whatever three roommates. A Frenchman Franck Thomas the German Dave the Canadian and drew the American. That sounds like the makings of a killer ban. Yes that's right court. What are you studying in? Scotland studying church history so studying sort of like a variety of classes but Studying sort of fifteenth and Sixteenth Century Scotland. Studying the early sort of early Roman church so sort of. Constantine through you know the the break-up of the Roman Empire so just like nerdy stuck just had your guitar with you the whole yet. I wasn't writing songs about any of that stuff. I mean it was informing you know in a way but now I just started writing songs and really. It was diving into that pain because what I knew I was GONNA do. I started writing songs because my senior project at. Ut was an oral history about my brother. So I was interviewing fifty to eighty people. Nurses doctors friends teachers cousins. Who grew up around him in his life. And I was trying to figure out why this like kid. With Spina Bifida made such an impact when he his funeral was like twenty five hundred on my word so I was just personally curious and also just thought it was a great way to sort of put this history stuff to work to do this oral history and so part of that was started writing songs about that. Sorta as a sideline and extending come home from Scotland and start my senior year. My friends start playing songs for my friends. They're like Ayman is a pretty good. You should maybe give this a go so I started looking some gigs in Knoxville. Like at bars and I'd play covers and originals. Invite my friends out and this mentor of mine. Basically told me so. Hey man graduate. School can wait a year to like. It's not going anywhere much to take a break. Do this music thing get a job. See what happens. And that was in the fall. Two Thousand and three and here we are in two thousand twenty. Golly that's crazy so when you started doing it and you were playing in those bars. You couldn't have been making much planning those bars. No it's probably pretty scrappy beginnings for a while. I would assume yeah really four or five years of absolute scrap absolute scrap. Was that whole time where you think to yourself. This is what I want to do with the rest of my life or were you just filling time. During that season I was enjoying sort of the process of seeing the country of convincing by then friend to date me and Mary me I was enjoying the freedom I really found a lot of freedom and being my own boss that was like also and I was like well. That's pretty cool. And then also the same time I was sort of looking at the writing on the wall of the other dream going man. It's like really hard to get a real decent job at university especially as sort of a you know another southern white male just like there's a lot of those PhD's in history saturated market. So I just honestly the part of it I was really loving the business and I was finding satisfaction in putting together the band and the recording process and learning I was growing. I felt like you know all these things. I didn't understand about music. I mean as a kid you get a record and you think Oh. These people just got no room. They've set up. Some microphones push record. And that's what you hear and then you realize that. Oh It's actually this incredibly long and arduous process but very satisfying process and so I found myself enjoying it and just kept going based on my dad. You know I'm just GonNa keep doing this until it stops growing and it didn't. You're still. Here is your idol dip. It was your dad. Supportive or your parents supportive as you were kind of pursuing this dream very supportive. My Dad always jokes. He says he has all these friends that tell him like. Why did you let drew do this? And he's like I let drew do anything you know. He's twenty one years. Old graduated from College Emmy debt which was Nice Ozone. Scholarship makes a big difference in your twenty two years old about. Can you pursue this dream? Well I have all this debt and I gotta get a certain amount of money job or can I like try to do something independently with it of hamstrings you? So I didn't have any deaths and my dad basically told me like. Hey Man if you're gonNa work hard at this your mom and I are in your corner like let's go for it and actually took me guitar shop and bought me like the nicest guitar he could afford and said like this is our send you on your way thing you know. Wow so very supportive stuff had other people say like I wanted your parents. Let you do this crazy thing. Let me amount of adult. Yeah that's right. You don't have to have your parents permission but it sure helps. Psychologically I think to have people that believe in you that in your corner day deal but also. They weren't covering like they weren't paying for you to do they work. They work funding your dream. But they were supporting your. Yeah but I gave me alone ten grand and make my first record but it was expected to be paid back. And did you pay of course? I figured you're probably not still in the payment plan. No I read this in. I think it was rolling stone. That wrote it. It said while working at a Memphis studio in the early two thousands holcomb started playing small bars on weekends and eventually found himself zigzagging across the south in old Volvo Wagon and putting nearly three hundred thousand miles on the car and five years first of all. Is that true very true? John Actually totaled at around two hundred and forty thousand miles and took it around mechanic and he he made it drivable not put another ninety thousand miles on it. That's insane you're going all over and then it says initially. He says he was barely making ends. Meet playing at the most random coffee houses and community college. Lunch hours anywhere. That would give me a little scratch to play my songs. So that's a pretty accurate representation. Those first few yeah definitely and you know some of those college. Gigs were literally community colleges noon and they had these entertainment budgets that they had dispensed they bring you in. I'd bring my own P. A. And severe that set it up in the corner at start playing and literally a third of the room when they realized the somebody was sort of interrupting their lunch would put their headphones on to listen to their music. While I'm playing in the corner so you had to have pretty thick skin letting you know their checks cashed and that's how I was able to afford to keep going so it was complete survival. Did you have moments where you were just like? What am I doing at least two or three times an hour? When I was playing shows seriously though you know sometimes about halfway through that period is when I got married. Ellie was a schoolteacher and then after a year of teaching administered go on. The road means so really my last year of doing a lot of those colleges she was with me and that was so much more fun because we were just getting the car and just laugh at how terrible the experience was you know like. I said they were the gigs paid and that was the right around the time we started having some success with songs on TV and film. This song live forever came out which did really well On. Tv show. Parenthood was the season. Finale montage moment and we got paid enough to get a van and we started getting asked to go on tour other singer. Songwriters. Dave Barnes and Marvis. Are these sort of smaller. You Know Club. Things were also starting to really make real fans and then it became. Maybe I want to do this for the rest of my life. Real to that point it was like this is a big.

Lawrence Wright on Researching a (Fictional) Pandemic
"Last book was God Save Texas Nonfiction. I believe there was a play in between and now this just curious how you go from one project to the next and and forgive me if I skipped a project that may have been in between as well years ago. I made a resolution that I would only do things that were important or fun. Was you know the state of confusion about what I wanted to do with my life and I thought I as a journalist I like to be on the important stories of the day but I also realized that it didn't want to give up things that really joyful and so those are the polls stars of my career and I think is sort of understandable that I would now be working on a musical but you know if you take those as your pulse stars in. I think you can have a pretty interesting career. Are they ever important and fun? Yes this book was. I know it sounds you know is is is a rather bleak book but I really had a wonderful time researching it and going into the world of of public health in all these swashbuckling intellectuals I just admire them so much so I I really had a good time working on this book. All right I'm going to cut to the chase and let everyone know who doesn't know already that the end of October is a fictional story of a pandemic so before we get into more about it and want to go back again to the origin stories. You've said that the director Ridley Scott Asks you a question after Reading Cormac. Mccarthy's the road and that that was your inspiration. What was the question? And when did he ask this? When were you sitting around with Ridley Scott talking about this? This was a decade ago and he is questioned was what happened because Cormac didn't say anything. About what event or of nature had brought civilization to heal? So I started thinking about what could do that and of course I thought about nuclear war but I was a young reporter covering diseases out of the Center for Disease Control in one thousand nine hundred ninety six. There's a swine flu outbreak in the legionnaires disease and I had become enchanted with that world and the courage and ingenuity of the people that I found there and so I thought it'd be an interesting place to find a hero because I felt that those people that I met were really heroic and that disease had been underestimated as a problem for our society in modern times. So Ridley Scott ask you this question about a decade ago and you had been thinking about it because you had reported on disease over the years. When did you actually start working on? This novel really never made the movie. So like Mr Destiny of so many projects in Hollywood and about in two thousand seventeen. I've been thinking about this story. Still is in my mind so I decided I would go back and work on work on. It is a knock and this time I would dive into the research even more deeply and let the story emerged more naturally rather than cinematic -ly so that's that's how the novel got started. You are such a master your master of many forms but I love your nonfiction so much. There's so much research material in this. Did you think maybe there should be nonfiction? I DID CONSIDER WRITING ABOUT MORE DISEASES. But you know it already had an imaginary character and a world which it was said. I got attracted to the idea of tempting it as a novel. It seemed a challenge for me and I wanted to see if I could do it. Who WAS THAT IMAGINARY CHARACTER? Will the name of my heroes? Henry Parsons in the late. Nineteenth Century in England. There was another influence of outbreak and a young epidemiologist named Henry. Parsons was the first to prove that it was caused by contagion and not by my asthma's in the environment you know. He's totally forgotten figure. But I decided to tip my hat to him and name my character. Henry Parsons he is a man whose life has been touched rather savagely by disease and works out of the Center for Disease. Control where I had done by early reporting. And he's an epidemiologist who's confronted many diseases in the past but has always known that there was one awaiting him. There was going to be the big challenge so the CDC is in Atlanta Georgia and the United States. But this novel the breakout begins elsewhere. You have it really kind of take hold in Mecca. Why did you choose to do that? We'll after nine eleven when I was working on my book looming tower. The Saudis wouldn't let me in as a reporter so I got a job. I was mentoring young reporters at the Saudi Gazette in Jeddah which had bin Laden's hometown and one of my very first jobs was to supervise their coverage of the Hodge and I was was not allowed to go to Mecca myself but I was in communication every day with my reporters and I was very struck at the time about the hazard of gathering of people in one place from all over the world and having every year some disease arises sometimes more than one and there's an epidemic in Mecca and then people get on airplanes and they fly home. Well you know what if it was something really dangerous suppose it was like the nineteen eighteen flu. That was in my gosh even when I was living in Saudi Arabia enter the CA-. Golly flew right. This is her fictional virus. Tell us about that sickness. And how did you come to describe what this flu would be like? Why a flu even influence is unconquered. It's the great killer it every year. We lose maybe you know fifty thousand people to influence a very dangerous disease. Clever in a way in that has always mutating. And you never know what's going to show up the next year. I mean the the fluid self that comes every year is sort of a descendant of that nineteen eighteen original Spanish flu right. That's correct Pamela. We're right now. The seasonal flu is H. One IN ONE. Which is the strain that killed between fifty and one hundred million people in nineteen eighteen? And I said as a young reporter I had done stories out of the Center for Disease Control but one of them in nineteen seventy six was a sudden outbreak of h one in one which is what public health officials had been dreading their entire careers. And it was a young man of recruit in Army Base Fort Dix in New Jersey. David Lewis suddenly after a Long March. Came back to the barracks in died. They examined the tissues discovered. It was h one n one Tremendous panic took place in. I win all over talking to people in Fort Dix and enter the members of David Lewis is family and so on the big mystery was he was the only one who died and yet you know there was this in national vaccine program and it became kind of catastrophe for Gerald Ford because people got sick from the vaccine. It was just a total mess but hanging over this was peculiar FAC fifty. Two hundred million people died you know a century ago and then only one and then in two thousand nine to the H. One in one came back as a pandemic and it was more like seasonal flu in his still with us but the the question I had was what would happen if something like the nineteen eighteen flu brand new novel virus came into our culture. How would we handle? It will be better prepared than our ancestors were in one thousand nine hundred eighteen and so the the flu that I create Congolese is really modeled on that. Old Virus one that came out in nineteen eighteen. It was also a hemorrhagic fever. You know there was no resistance to it in the population. I actually created a template that is based on the progress of the flu in Nineteen Eighteen. So in the novel the fluid advances across the globe. It pretty much mirrors. What was going on in nineteen eighteen?

Well we're done I'm GONNA send you my podcast with the guy who talks about digital diets and how to figure out what what's useful to and Wean Yourself. I'm liking this diet useful. Yeah a number eight if you could be commissioner of life for a day. What one rule would you enforce it? All of society would have to adhere to commissioner of life. I mean it's so corny but just respect each other. I mean it's the last year or so almost everyone said something about you know. Be Kind or be respectful inspect each other. I think the world we're living in right now. Make an umbrella that we can enact a lot of change either. Yeah for sure To less number nine. What's what's the most you've ever been most scared? I've ever been Probably I I was scared for eleven years. I was scared a failure. You know like so you. You're never you're never not afraid. NFL Player. I don't Care What anybody tells you in a few if you're not you should be and not to hit anybody but just you know because you could be embarrassed about being embarrassed. There's some guys who their worst and bear. You couldn't even ask some of these guys you have on the pod. What they're most embarrassing moment was because some home you know and that's that's failing in front of millions and millions of people and that's what's happening every Sunday maybe when? I flipped on the new river in West. Virginia we've flipped ooh about You know wrath. We were doing a rafting trip me and my buddies back home and I flip in and like I don't know what they call these things Mattie or something or world you and I got sucked under for a while. I was GONNA die Yeah that that would be and then I saw Barracuda on vacation once it was like six feet and swam on me and I probably Pete a little. That probably didn't help. I don't know if that moves them away. Absurd evidently not during the shiny objects since I I hear and of course Shiny Ah Shiny Bikini on. They warned us not to get in the water shiny objects on and I six Barracuda swims by them. Like what are you doing else Find the number ten. What three words would you most hope that people would use to describe you Loyal oil friend Tolerable good not tolerant. I mean tolerable take time but just holler tolerable because if if you're tolerable these days because there are so many just people like I can't even yes if you're tolerable. That's a good start. I feel like a lot of people even in social circles that that like each other secretly just can't stand being around on each other and so if I'm tolerable that's that's that's a good thing Thank you so much for coming on and I'm supposed to ask. Is there anybody I should have on the podcast that you would love to hear that you think is oh yeah Allan Allan Okay on it. Thanks so much Chris. I know you're busy and I really really really appreciate you giving me the time problem. Sarah appreciate it. That's what she said. It's time once again for South Bitch sessions where I rant about something that bothers me and I fixed it. This week was going to be about shitty onion rings where the onion isn't cooked enough. So you kind of you bite through that delicious crispy fried stuff but then you can't get your teeth all the way through the onion the whole while steaming hot onion slides out of it. And you burn your mouth and then you have this empty shell of the fried part without an onion it for the other half which is really disappointing but it feels kind of silly to complain about that or really anything else right now. I'm sure you are also still reeling about the death of Kobe. Bryant his daughter Jonah and seven even others and he had a complicated legacy which I've spent all day writing about and what you'll be able to read soon but there's no denying the tragedy of his death and the loss potential and his young daughter and her promise and the other kids and people lost so I think no complaining today and no snapping and no feeling good about anything either afterwards. George just as sort of acknowledgment that with these moments we are reminded that life is finite and we never know how much time we're going to have and so we should be kinder to each other and we should spend our time more wisely so a little bit less complaining this week for me and a little bit more being grateful for the things that I have. If you've got a dilemma for the commissioner fix you can tweet it to me at Sarahspain or go to that. She said in the ITUNES PODCAST APP Subscribe Rate Review. Leave a dilemma in your review. And hopefully I'll get to it in a future podcast. Thanks as always for lasting about an hour with me. That's what she said..
"golly" Discussed on That's What She Said with Sarah Spain
"Our criminal justice system is and I'll always try to be involved in that sort of thing. I think that if we can fix our educational system while we do and we can walk and Chew Gum like we can change the country And the planet and I think that certain populations have been given so much less opportunity And and kids don't have a choice where they go to school and that's the most messed up. You know I've worked with. I work with adults and you know a lot of my charitable efforts out out of our programs but kids are blank slate. And you know and kids don't have any agency over what they're doing and so You better believe where you go to school. And the opportunity have sculpt your future opportunities and who you become as a person and so I WANNA get involved in educational side of of it I decided hey. I'm not making a ton of money. I think the way we can get fans energized to donate and match because that was the whole point. One of the uncomfortable. Sticking points to me was. I don't WanNa look self-important. I certainly am not doing this like for the clout or something thing. There has to be a reason to donate a million plus dollars. 'cause like most people do that. There's a bunch of super rich people doing that every day around the world like I'm not the first. I don't deserve that much credit. Where we do deserve credit is energizing fans and the reason was an entire year salaries? Because I think that spoke to fans say like I'm doing this for free. It's my love Luckily get behind yeah And fans got behind it in Philly fans matched. My efforts Our efforts at the foundation and we doubled our investment Macaws that went to organizations like summer. Search that went to scholarships that went to a whole host of things and we did did more than two thousand eighteen. I had to keep a little bit of my paycheck. But you know it achieved the desired outcome which was getting people more involved in the Philly area And football fans as well and looking at this thing like this is an exhaustive. You know social justice is become this like stigma to a lot of people where they hear it and they run will like if criminal justice too messy and you're afraid to get involved like fix our school system and there's plenty of people working the criminal justice space as well. I'd lobby for for bills before with Malcolm in Harrisburg Worked on cannabis legislation decriminalization stuff. we've done bail system stuff Looking at some of the shortcomings of that stuff but you know the educational stuff is a slam dunk for me. Yeah in you're right. People who want to turn their nose up at issues they don't care about but then also don't get invested in in everyday things that they could help with either. There are clearly not not just holding that up as a reason to hate or or two. I know we're running out of time a couple of speed round questions for you. What's the the Everything is almost nothing that was better as a football player. The only thing that's better as football players you get your ego stroke more and I don't even I don't know if that's a good thing Yeah that that's that's about it. Game Day is is the only thing I miss and honestly game day when the weather gets cold because I want to look at those guys out there sweating their asses off week. One two three and there's nothing on the line that didn't do it for me watching a playoff game in philly dead. Yeah Yeah What's the one thing you're happiest to be done doing regularly like ice baths or getting hit all the time or getting dressed for practice? Actress In in warm ups I hated practice. But I didn't hate practice 'cause the team periods like I did not mind that at all but all the everything around it you know you get out of meetings. You're hurting so you gotta get in the hot tub. You GotTa get paid all my broken fingers taped I gotta you know warm up my strain calf and then I gotta put on all my stupid practice stuff. That has to look exactly right team rule and I gotTa do it in thirty minutes like that was something that just always annoy me and then you get out to the field and if you like football enough to like team period you gotta wait thirty minutes again through this entire stretching process and by now I'm cold you know like I just want to give out there and go so I don't miss everything that went around practice meetings. You know getting ready for practice all that. But you didn't take a super long time to just chill and travel and do whatever you are part of a digital sports network with content driven by athletes and celebrities called Chock media. You do podcast with them. you work for the ringer. I don't believe you were ever one of those athletes that said I'm never going to be the media and immediately became the media. I think you've always had a good relationship with with media. But why do you feel like something you wanted to jump into right away. Well I mean I knew I'd never want to be one of these like I never wanted. My Dad's my dad's on. I probably Fox Sunday and like he's got to travel to west coast every week. You know since I was Kelly I don't even know how And it looks pretty hard The money's good. He's made more money after he played than and while he played by far because they weren't making money like that back then so kind of have the luxury of deciding to do what I want and knowing that I'm opinionated And I also need something to do every day. I need structure in my life. That's the way football players are are we had structure and something we had to wake up to and pressure packed jobs for you know decades now if you include high school in In College because you were if if you were working towards a professional you know in a professional direction. There's always pressure so now it's like if you get out and you don't have anything going on. That's where I think you get in trouble and I see guys dealing with that so I thought hey podcasts are cool. It's not a lot of pressure unless you you get good. So it's a good news bad news thing. I founded on like a Lotta people. Listen to my podcast told that I'm supposed to grow it so you know if nobody's listening it's low pressure and If people pick it up and it starts Kim popular then Then that's a brand right and cross that bridge when you come to it but I'm enjoying it. It's a way to keep exercising a a Lotta the same habits. I had when I played studying answering the bell and like having something to do the hustle and like I don't have a lot of time as you know how you know stringent some of this. This stuff is like and I bit off more than I could chew. I fall honestly had like free podcasts on Thursday night football okay Adams James Co so I was worn out at at the end of the regular season just like I wasn't I played minus all the eggs. Yeah Yeah I mean you can. It's it's a very different kind of tired but it's tired. It's it's like your brains tired of talking and thinking and trying to remember everything all right senior and you're tired of like you're tired of like. Hey everybody this is my opinion right I believe or not. I don't WanNa do it every day but somedays you're told. Hey you're growing a youtube channel on your podcast like you need to be regular you need us to. You are the week. There's no like Thursday. I'm in a bad mood or feeling like who gives a shit what I think You start to like talk. which sucks a little bit? Yeah I like talking probably more than anyone on earth if I've got a highly questionable around the horn then my radio show our after show. I don't want anyone to talk to me and I don't want to say anything it's like I'm done with the brain. I'm checking out for an hour. I hear you I feel the same thing. Obviously not as much pressure doctors I can see you on. TV SO NFL paycheck to fall back on more people watching you and listen to me so so maybe one day I'll be there and I'll have to have to deal with that. Yeah we'll turn even around the horn put. It looks okay. Super Bowl speed round. Did you have any superstitions before four games or things like even for a big game honestly it just became it became a music thing. You just listen the same song so for me. It was Immortality by Pearl Jam so that kind of became the the Super Bowl playoff run song and listen to a lot in England and Listen to it right for ran out and then Randomly walking out before Super Bowl practice or before playoff run. Were walking out for practice and me and legare blunt two guys in the Patriot. The Patriots are walking through the tunnel at the link. And there's music plan and it's like a Thursday and The radio they never play us on the radio and sure enough. It's on the radio and I'm like Oh man who's GonNa be good playoff run and like it was just me and LG in the hallway so eerie and that became the song for me. That's great post game. What's the difference in the celebration with the pats and the one you had with? The Eagles Eagles was a bit better for me because the post game party was a bit like more intimate PATS post game. Party was a lot of people They was like free access. Almost most like people who bought tickets to the game is great. I WANNA spend time. I WANNA spend time with the fans to but I had this big group and I was so stressed because I'm trying to wrangle everybody and get people tickets to the party and whatnot and that can be tough when there was like five thousand people in big convention center and then the Eagles one they had in a little bit more private. There was a fan cy which was awesome. But then you go in this back room with more private and honestly I think the PATS had it too but I had to many people to get back there so yeah and then you know you've got I'm sure plenty of stores that you can't tell but is there one story you can tell from from your time in football of a guy you know partying before the Super Bowl or getting caught the lady in jumping out of a window or one of those crazy ones that we here. Well there's certainly one that I have that I'll probably when I tell it in five ten years you can Well I'll say I kind of broke it on Sarahspain show but You know there was. My Dad always tells a story that I liked salmon. LYLES EVO Miss the bus to the Super Super Bowl and They had to take a cab through like standstill traffic. I mean this is like an eighty two or eighty three and they got out and walked like the last mile now. This might be one of those. We walked to school. And you know in the snow us ways and maybe it was a a hundred yards but I know that they had to walk. And there's nothing worst being late. It's like a recurring nightmare. Mind be late to a football game or was my entire career. I can't imagine being late to bowl and ended up on time but they had to kind of power. Walk Walk in there. Is this a good warm up. That's all it was just wanted a little extra. I've probably would get the lactic acid out. Yeah exactly yeah before before I let you go you have to do the one thing that everybody does and nobody expects.

"People looking at players that look like you're in the NFL. And I can understand Stan Watch some guys who are younger. Don't have the security. I have from a job standpoint or the the attitude of like I've done what I WANNA do I can understand why maybe some of them don't speak up but I wasn't going to be the one especially everything that happened in my hometown in Charlottesville and You know I wanted to raise my fist honestly but I get made fun. Oaks looks like a black power symbol. So I'd be like doing the black power or symbol and people would think like I'm a nerd So for me. Put my arm around mouth because my way of raising my fish as well with I am so You know there are players in our league who have experienced single you know first person view or would it be third person. I have no idea Some of the issues that are plaguing our country that we were talking about without getting to sleep and everything you know. I think a lot of fans have the the opinion that if you're a millionaire and you're black you're not black anymore from standpoint like you have to deal with what goes along with being black America and it was disheartening. It's heartening to see the way a lot of people. Try to use the flag as a shield us. The military's a shield and not talk about these issues. Everybody loves it. The players are real. You stick microphone players spaces for decades As the media and people watching home say I want the real answer like. Don't give me any can stuff and then when players give you real answers and they talk about what they're passionate about. You're upset and I'm talking about people that have not use error the the media but people watching at home. Now it's time to shut up and dribble You Know Hey. We want players to be charitable. We don't want them to be community. Eddie minded well. The communities players came from are not the communities the you know community workers always handing out turkeys like it can be messy. It can be He. You know showing that you care about your community. They're trying to transform legislation or you know shed light on issues. That might be uncomfortable for you. So I totally was supportive. And I didn't want to be supportive in silence because that would make me fake knowing that I have the opportunity I have to to talk about it. Yeah the massine is yes I think is the part that that trip's people up and that's why capture nick at times being a not the perfect messenger made it easy for people to ignore the actual message and and people even people who maybe think that they actually are on the right side of things. I WANNA make change if they don't become uncomfortable. While seeking that change they probably aren't really understanding how serious we need to get about some of this stuff before it's actually going to move the needle and so and so it's okay to be like my thing is we get caught up in this thing too much where people that believe i. I don't WanNa seem too much probably is your twitter. You probably believe a lot of the same stuff I do. I think sometimes on our side of the fence we we do all this and and then we say cut everybody off that thinks differently and don't even try to have a conversation with him. Well so what's the point because if I'm making a gesture sure we're talking about an issue and only the people that believe the same thing as me hear it because I've taught everybody else offer. I've said they're not even worth trying to change. Then there's actually no growth like there's actually no growth of this crowd that's on the right side of things in my opinion. Yeah so you know. That's been a challenge for me as a lot of times the hardest stuff. I don't mind here in pay white guilt. Boy You know. Whatever in my favorite? That's my favorite one. Yeah I'm guilty to be white. My my son's name is Waylon I can't dance You know I like way I love. WHO WII M I I? I don't dislike white people. I've heard that before I've heard white guilt. Like what am I guilty about like you're guilty. 'cause you don't WanNa talk about it. That's the way I look at it. I can take all that stupid stuff. What I can't take though is people on my side of the fence? That really seemed to be confrontational about little details. Details of how we get it done. And that can be the most disheartening thing. If some of the infighting now the people I know I'm gonNA fight with anyway. I signed up to to To go head to head with disagree with me but when somebody on my side of the fence you know what I'm talking about there's a lot of. There's a lot of messing as comprehensively in this entire entire thing and I think that's that's what sucks about it and website. We mentioned earlier makes it even harder because you could argue with somebody. You agree with on that website. Oh much time doing. I saw a lot of time doing it over the last couple years so I don't mind the mean you know direct messages. I'm a big boy. I don't mind people in my mentioned I haven't had a single person come up to me and tell me they have an issue with the way I think because I think it's more intimidating but you you got people in your mentions all day talking shed and that doesn't bother me what bothers me is some of the lack of progress because of Some of the people thinking there's zero Wiggle Room mm-hmm for my way or the highway type. How do we get this done? And that can be disheartening to. There's a really amazing story of a woman that was raised in the Westboro Baptist Church and people from twitter started following engaging with their and showing up at her protests and trying to talk to her about. Why do you believe this you know? Why do you think your parents raised you with this? And eventually eventually she came out of the Church and does a Ted talk now about how instead of people yelling and screaming and fighting her they wanted to get to know her and understand her and then talk her out of why should we. It'd be doing these hateful things and it's a perfect example of the things we maybe don't try enough. We kind of consider people lost causes but it takes a lot more work than just arguing over the internet which unfortunately elise if the in person stuff and to me like I've I've had I've had a hundred conversations with people that think slightly different. I'm not you know somebody might be you like. Why are you having conversation? I'm not talking to all right people you know I'll let somebody else do that. You know in a friendly manner but for me. It's somebody with like a policy difference or you know that would be a disqualifier on the Internet like I'll at least have a key. Let's talk about it and I'm GonNa try to tell you I. I think that I'm right and and you might. Have you know some thinking to do about or maybe you haven't heard everything or you know i. I've had plenty of those conversations in person and I never see them occur. I many times on the Internet. You know I've had people in person be like you know what you're right. I never thought about that. People have Nonni Long-time how many times almost I never heard anybody in the Internet. Literally say I was wrong Right unless us a loser sponsorship or something. Yeah Hey or even even on a small scale just having a conversation back and forth like Oh you know what I was looking for that back that would disqualify my point. You gave it to bring me so I was wrong. I've never seen never like I talk about on the pod because there's all these studies into the psychosomatic responses of engaging in person where your body Audie is actually reading someone else's eyes and lips and body movements and you are trying then even if it's subconsciously to find a connection point even with someone you're arguing with and we lose all of those online. We don't hear their voice we don't see their face and we're in fact not trying to connect and then that makes the the engagement sort of difficult even if you think you're open minded and you're willing to be proved wrong you probably not you're probably just GonNa get more and more dug in and that's why it's a problem how much we do online but I think I think it's the same reason why spouses you know like my wife and I should not argue over tax. Yes it's like it makes. We don't figure anything out and like we can't read each other like we lose the human connection on lobbyist level but we lose it on a communication level which is what you're talking come out and and it becomes the new normal just type it each other and by the way. Good luck having somebody focus on more than two eighty and character land like. That's the Max works out right now in society so I hate that. I hate that you know a lot of times. You'll tweet something and you know people start bitching at you about about a point. You didn't even make right or they won't read the context because there's multiple things you said the other day my husband sent me a bit Moji not even tax. It was a pick a stupid cartoon tune of him. That said thanks for nothing about something I thought he was seriously stopped up the stairs. I had I think I was a kid. I was annoyed and I thought you're being serious the way work. Yeah let's talk about you know you. You gave up your entire salary in two thousand seventeen to charity was part of you. Were honored Walter Payton. Nfl Man end of the year award in part for that you gave it to a bunch of places. Why was it so important to you? And why did you maybe make the statement of saying my whole salary versus a lump sum. Did it how people really understand what you doing the investment. You were making well one. I always wanted to see how much I actually liked football. 'cause it's always always been in Dallas for me it's not like it takes away from from The way I play I mean like the way I play is going to be also all that's it that's all I know and working working as all I know but you know from a standpoint of you took the money away. I kind of wondered what that would go like now. I didn't have that in the pipe for a long time or anything I just knew we were talking about a lot of hard issues that I was interjecting myself into and you know it is so easy for me. Eight to talk about issues when it comes to achieving quality in our country. It's easy and like even to get me praised. Everybody used to be like. Hey thanks for being so brave. I'm like this doesn't seem brave from where I'm sitting because all I do is when people walk by me on the street is telling me how happy agree with you man. Thank like you like. There's actually a lot of love there and the people that that are gonNA cuss me out behind a computer. I don't give two shits about them so it was is all positive now for me I need to put some sweat equity and like how am I getting action behind my words and you know I was working with the players coalition. And you know working with this time especially early on like cab Eric. You know Malcolm everybody was on the same accord and We were attacking different angles. You know from the criminal justice system to education to all host of economic Job Fairs that type of thing and what I was drawn to and where I thought I could make the biggest difference was educationally because I I still see as messed up..

"Responsibility so being released when Jeff Fisher. Sure call me. I said don't even apologize. It's all good. This is cool with me like maybe it'll work out for the better and And Yeah I got to go some new place in Winston championships chefs. But I would be lying if I said it was ever the same in the locker room. even with the special lockers we had as the guys who are fighting through one of fifteen in seasons to a fourteen seasons playing their ass off and really like spending years together and that was that defensive line. We hadn't Saint Louis move very good. Robert Quinn William Hayes Myself L. Rockers. Aaron Donald Nick Fairley Eugene sans a ton of really good players in Lakewood. I never played on in a room like that again. Even with some of the heralded groups. We Yeah you play. The season for the Patriots won a super bowl played. Two seasons for the Eagles won a super bowl there as well it feels to me and this is just from afar. Your memories of the Eagles Win feel more specialty. Your connection to that too you. Accomplishment is that just because that's a huge thing for an eagles fan Dan and one of many for the Patriots or was it about the team you were on well. No I wouldn't just talking about the locker in the locker room was great in both places and I think that's what gets lost in New England when people have varying opinions on. You Know Fun in New England I might not make the hot water lane Johnson for saying he'd rather have a bunch of championship. There's people that look at New England. It's very authoritarian. I had a great time. I had never won before that landing spot and by the way the last fifteen years I picked between took free agency and never having that for agency to pick somewhere since I was a junior in high school I went down to being picking game and I I took a a Washington can visit and I'm glad that I passed on that I I almost took a Dallas visit canceled out on that last second one build told me hey assigned but it came down to Atlanta and and New England. Of course that's team we ended up Down Twenty three to In the third quarter of a super bowl and I remember sitting there On the sideline and saying this really just comes down to pick and and I'm a moron. I played eight. Years has never won. And Yeah I mean like I picked the wrong team and and of course that chains and everything else is is history but New England was special may because individually. I've never won. We had a special group number one defense in the League scoring defense. Two the year I had great teammates. Mate's Gaza I love and then Veg mcquarry. Danny Amendola was there. You know a bunch of my buddies And they are truly good men in that locker room. But you don't live in the city. I live in box. Borough never spent a Lotta Time in Boston The scheme wasn't great for me. And that's a big part of it and how I enjoy football playing three technique Not really my thing and when I got the Philly we were the first. The fashioned was which in which we won that Super Bowl with a auto backup quarterback all the injuries we add being picked to be towards the bottom of league and went on a super bowl. Backup quarterback person city's history being an underdog and all those games and playing a bigger role individually. We played in a four three. And that's why I went there. I wanted to finish my career doing some. I knew how to do well. and that was play three yards in the backfield field in the run game and and and rushing the passer so having grown men come up to you sixty five years old seven years old and saying I waited my entire life. This and they're crying. You know pads awesome organization or some fans but they're used to that and Philly will always be that team we will always be a part of it. You know five live camping trip down the line. If they get there will always be i. Yeah that's really cool. It's really it's really awesome. You mentioned Playing for the Patriots. What's something then? We should know about valujet that we don't has a great sense of humor. I mean some people who'd this it's desert dry But it's a sense sense of humor at the end of the day. We all have different types of humor we enjoy and his very dry and And he would make me laugh on a daily basis but when it comes to bill I always say this. The thing that separates them from other coaches which makes him. The greatest of all time is he can walk around the field in a circle and coach every reposition at superior level then the position coach who's probably dedicated decades of their lives. Coaching that position and bill just knows football comprehensively at a level that no one else does. And that's situational stuff to the building of a roster being kind of defacto. GM to having coached different positions and you know He just masters all that and you look coaching now today. And you've got coordinators. You have teams 'cause you had some guys who were supposed to be motivators. There's very few coaches that do everything. And he can do everything yeah. I don't think anybody can argue his greatness as a coach. Now whether you want to play for him. I think probably you have to actually do it to know that because it's kind of like an argument with like a spouse. It's actually she more frustrating when they're disappointed in you than when they're mad at you and I feel like kind of like what belichick would be that person that you just don't WanNa let down and you just don't want to let them down even even if they're not going to be the screamer. Although I'm sure he screams at times as well. Well I had. I had a number of coaches that I didn't want to disappoint in. And you know even Jeff Fisher or who people give a Lotta crap you know that was somebody. I never wanted to disappoint because I felt like he cared about me as a person. Doug Peterson as well. You don't WanNA disappoint bill bill for that reason but you also know disappoint bill. Because you don't get a lot of second chances in that organization and If he sniffs a problem boom he's GonNa put that fire out before it gets going and you know that's for some players an adjustment Where they're used to having leeway in New England whoever you are they can get another you you know? They shipped off Chandler Jones the year before a couple of days before I got there because they decided you know. Here's a guy who's a hall of fame type Rusher we don't WanNa pay 'em there are some issues whatever we don't need them. There's only a couple of people we mead. We'll get pass rush by committee with a bunch of guys are going to have five six sacks a year and You know he's done that in a bunch of different instances where he just decides. Hey I can win without a person or the scheme is much bigger than the player. The organization is bigger than the player and he keeps things things strictly business in a really interesting way so I believe that it's not. It's not so hard when he has to make decisions that are tossed and personal people. Speaking of sort of being a team of pieces that could be moved in and out. Tom Brady is the one piece that has not been moved in and out and this feels feels like the first time that were really potentially talking about him leaving you personally. Having played with them having watched him for years. Do you want to see him leave and go try to do some. You know some of what he's done somewhere else or you want him to stick with the with the Patriots are be done. I'm kind of as a sports fan. I WANNA see chaos like I like I like parody. I like interesting news stories and I think that Tom and another uniform if he so chooses loses to continue playing we'll give him a great opportunity to prove himself and bill respectively Proved himself as well without Tom and Tom Without bill so I think it would be an interesting thing is a football fan. I think that if you're looking at New England there's a couple of ways you can look at got it. Listen that was not a great team this year and they still want a bunch of games. They're going to have a hard time keeping like twenty free agents In place offensively we talked about Carson. Not Having a lot of weapons that was ridiculous attrition. You know kind of Tom didn't come out there with a lot. You know in the beginning of the year. Yeah you're depending on a guy who you know. Quite frankly looks like he's lost his mind And I'm not being funny to try it out. There and carrier offense offense is the guy stretching the field And a guy who's been hurt but boy it'd be being jewels some other pieces like the first first round wide receiver bills Dell's drafted and his tenure in New England That means there was an issue there from personnel standpoint. Nothing since that Super Bowl that we beat them and we put up. You know five hundred plus yards. I think bill decided if I'm reading between the lines. I'm never losing a big game again because of my defense and I thought that there was maybe an over correction from a personnel standpoint dumping everything the defense and Tom was left with nothing to throw to. You know and for a number of issues too with with the offensive line getting dinged up. Losing Gronk was enormous dabbling getting hurt. You're running backs. Use them like receivers. That's about what you got. And you're passing ASSINGAMBI JEWELS AND And I think Tom Getting a new exciting start. Also the fun part is like trying to pinpoint where he might go. 'cause it's a mystery history. Plays everything so close to the vest. If he does leave New England he could get paid. I know money's not an issue but I know pride is an issue with him. It has to be. He's been taking haircuts for so long up there and probably wants to be You know recognized for His grace and he wants to prove people wrong so you got to the Eagles calls after the pats you managed to be a part of their first super bowl. Ever you make incredible ties. It felt like the team mates that you met there and became a part of that history with Particularly Malcolm Jenkins and you made a lot of news as the first white player to sort of acknowledge and be a part of Kapernick and Malcolm Jenkins a number of other players player's anthem protests. You didn't raise your fist. You didn't neo but you did support Malcolm and you were willing to openly talk about it. Something that a lot of people talk about the need for for white allies in the fight for racial justice. And it's understandable that many players would be reticent about joining and not feel like they want to have to take on the flack. Why do you feel like you're in a position to handle whatever criticism you might get from teammates from fans from the League? I never got a single critising in the locker awesome. That's the thing about Locker rooms and I can't paint a picture of every player's ideology whether they're white or the black because there's a lot of black players who didn't nail or you know Raise the fist or even joining any semblance of protest. So I think there is a there's a level of like you have to understand these players in the league. It's a culture where that's not welcome from an ownership standpoint for an office point name it sounds simple and I don't know if would I like to think I've done the same thing when I was younger if I want to make it as much money but I've gotten what I want out of my career So even if I was convicted on these things earlier in my career one there was never an opportunity to to show that I mean I had my twitter. You know I I tweet about these issues my entire career but you know here we are. You are in a situation where somebody needs to step up. The looks like me in some form or fashion and I might be one of the ones that steps up and I've always been one. That's had a hard time keeping keep my opinions myself but you know now. Hey look people looking.

Very male and gross, that's bad. It is too bad. And that's the thing that I think is we find with a lot of folks from this part of the canon.

And again, it's just that is one of the things that I think does not stand up about a book that people referred to as one of the greatest works of the twentieth century. Sure. And I think maybe the book that comes to mind is. Peyton place. Is that? Oh, yeah, sure. Where at the time it was it was you know, the book that scandalized America or whatever, and it's it's all titillating, but, but because of shifting standards that you know, none of this stuff in it has the same punch or reads the same way which sort of affects our ability to experience the book as it would have been experienced then? Yes, I do think somebody a lot of face. I do think some of the stuff in this book still has a punch to it, but we will get to that. I do. I want close out on just Roger Mexico. The closest thing to a romance in this book I think is they are fairly minor characters. We've, we only see them for the most part in this first section with a little bit of loop round at the end. But just is in a marriage with another guy. But she hits it off with Roger and they end up seeing each other a bunch wall the while the war has basically moved them together based on a sign mints. Okay. And Roger is very aware that without the war, he would not be with her and when the war ends their life together will end. And there's only so much he can do about that. And he's also this very data minded statistics, heavy person who still feels very spiritual connection to Jessica that he can explain and it goes against what he thinks the way the world works. So I wanna give a shout at to that just because. The rest of the book does not have a lot of. Warm emotion in it, and even even unrealized or kind of relationship that doesn't have a future is closer to that than than the rest of the book..
