"Ben, they read a poem of their own that's been published in the magazine. Today, my guest is Amanda Gorman, who served as the first ever national youth poet laureate, received a 2020 poets and writers, Barnes and noble writers for writers award. And in 2021 became the youngest inaugural poet in U.S. history. Amanda, welcome, thank you for joining us. Thanks so much for having me. So the first poem we've selected to read today is declaration by Tracy K Smith. Tell us what was it about this particular poem that caught your eye as you're looking through the archive? I love this poem because for me, it's really a masterclass in the erasure poem, which is to say, how do you approach a preexisting text and discover interrogate find new meaning of what has been left unsaid? And so this is a poem that Tracy K Smith wrote basically re approaching the Declaration of Independence as a site of deep racial reckoning. Well, let's listen to the poem. Here is Amanda Gorman reading declaration by Tracy Kate Smith. Declaration. He has sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people. He has plundered our ravaged hour, destroyed the lives of our taking away our abolishing our most valuable. And altering fundamentally the forms of our. In every stage of these oppressions, we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms. Our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our immigration and settlement here. Taken captive on the high seas to bear. That was declaration by Tracy K Smith, which was published in the November 6th, 2017 issue of the magazine. So I love that you picked that poem. I think it does a lot of what you say, but it also has this wonderful repetition in its petition Ness. How did you come to erasure and understand what she was doing with that? Willie whenever I read Tracy K Smith, I'm reading it as a student. I think she has so much to teach me. And something that I love about the way she approaches this poem is the way in which she completely deconstructs a text, which has become so familiar. So familial, I'll say and kind of political literature..

"Without any data to support it that most people have never been part of a conspiracy or even known a person who has and the thing that struck me as man first of all. I grew up in chicago. Where i don't know how it isn't york. But you don't get anything done without paying somebody off influencing and everything is a frequent correct and then i was a research associate university has arizona for an i left because i thought you know the phd process and that whole thing was very political quote unquote Which is also conspiratorial. And then i got into business. And i had a business and built my business. Sold a to A nasdaq company. Everything about that. Everything about business. Everything about large financial transactions is holly's conspiracy show but then the first one you use an example of conspiracy and my audience will love this. A conspiracy was behind the assassination of president lincoln. But not president kennedy and again since we'll wrap this up. But you guys need to. Google united states house select committee on assassinations and then add conspiracy or sound data. I mean that is. The finding of that committee is that it was a conspiracy. Well i guess you can tell them pretty worked up. It is so so skeptical so anyway. This is a dialogue. That i'm glad we had. I'm sure it's gonna make a lot of people uncomfortable. And i'm sure it made our guests a little bit uncomfortable but man you got to your work. You're gonna come on the show. Here's my interview with sarah. And jack gorman welcome to skeptical where we explore. Controversial science and spirituality with leading researchers thinkers and their critics. I'm your host alex today. Well we have something special. Because intelligent science driven dialogues with people who disagree are difficult. And they're not only difficult to have these kind of discussions but they're even difficult to arrange him. I can tell you. I can't tell you how many i've tried to do. And it's really hard to get authors to come on if they have any sense of. The party isn't going to agree with them. So when holly who is the rep from oxford university press originally reached out to me and said hey. Would you like to do this. I was like absolutely just make sure. They're down with it. So i was delighted and surprised so i think this is good. It's an opportunity again to have these kind of dialogues. That are can be difficult to have. But i think can be important too so our guest today are super bright super-qualified dr sarah gorman and dr jack gorman join us today why don't we start by talking a little bit about your.

Most feel of strike tokens leaders rawness and authenticity to sky. And i think his struggle to find anywhere. That is a promo piece for sky news australia. Which no matter what you think about rupert murdoch's sky news. You got acknowledge that sky news. Australia's mainstream and the reason i bring it up on. This show is because they were in the news recently because they had their videos banned from youtube because they dared to challenge the idea. That masks are effective for covert nineteen. Which i could go on and on about and i'm kind of tempted to. It's this interview. I haven't coming up with sarah. And jack gorman of the new book called the nine to the grave why we ignore the facts that will save us and so right off the bat. This is so classic. Skeptical this like ten years ago. Skeptical because he's people are super smart qualified. Sarah undergraduate degree. Harvard phd columbia. Jack has an even more impressive background. Md columbia psychiatry multiple fellowships taught at the med school. There i mean these are very very intelligent. People in the book is atrocious. When it comes to the science that we've talked about for so many years on this show. It completely fails from jump street. It fails from the fundamental scientists. A method it's not a position statement. So again i could go on and on and i can't a lot of this this interview slash debate that i know makes a lot of people uncomfortable. And for those of you who. It doesn't make uncomfortable. Let me tell you are in the minority. When i do interviews like this most people really do not like this kind of dialogue. But i gotta say where else are you going to hear this kind of stuff. Where else is this. Silliness going to be exposed so speaking of silliness. Here's where is start. Which seems obvious to me to anyone who cares about science and that is should we limit scientific debate. Should we feel okay. That scientific debate is being banned being censored. Here's a clip. Very disturbing to me. When people talk about information being dangerous and opinions being dangerous why would ever want to limit a scientific discussion. Because we don't agree with somebody. I find that very troubling. I do think that anybody who is spreads information about a medical technology that people need in order to survive. That's not true and usually it's intentionally not true. I don't think that they should be allowed to have any fat form. They want sarah who would determine what's not true..

"Since the launch of sputnik in nineteen fifty seven humans have been sending all sorts of things into space stuff like the serious eight and new satellite just launched by stitchers parent company or cargo space craft bringing supplies to space station's not to mention the most prising stuff like golden records or read tesla's an estimated thirty five thousand bits of Incentives right up to objects at the size of double decker buses up to of course international space station which is said to be the size of american football fields or five bedroom house. That's dr alice. Gorman associate professor at flinders university in south australia and one of the world's leading space archaeologists she studies all sorts of ways. Humans have engaged with space including these tens of thousands of objects rocketing around in earth orbit. And that's just stuff four inches and bigger there's believed to be millions of objects anything smaller than that. They distributed from lois little bit which is about two hundred kilometers above the surface of the us up to maybe about one thousand two thousand kilometers then. You have raged. That's just cold middle or medium business and then you get into. The high as obits. Miss includes Stationary orbit which is where bust of telecommunications satellites used to think of these orbits kind of like three lanes of a running track with satellites and spacecraft as the runners zipping around and around in their respective lanes. But note that for this analogy to work the track would be really really big and runners relatively teeny if we go out there and look at these might only say one object within your field. You so that impression. We have a stuff's closely packed together. Just together that's actually luck. Absolute worst case scenario. Which we're not at yet. There's growing concern about what will happen over. The next few decades as there are a lot of plans to launch way more stuff into orbit. And here's the thing.

There's so many big math of oak tree. Yeah. Off ground, high gusting winds. Those canopies work like massive sales.

All the work broader off a road that runs off storm water systems throughout the whole footprint and path of the storm will be overwhelmed.

So I would say that the documentary does two things, one of which is tell a story that a lot of us probably are of these plants and we familiar with because we saw it on the front of tabloids all through the two thousands. When we were standing in the grocery checkout aisle, and that's the story of Sidney stares, the pop star who started off as a member of the Mickey Mouse Club when she was a little kid, and then ended up having multi platinum record She played kind of Ah, We'll go sexy combination character and a number of music videos that were very popular on MTV, and she essentially was one of the biggest pop stars of that era but then ended up becoming much more. The focus of Intense scrutiny by the media by paparazzi about her personal life and about whether she was going off the rails. Whether she was a fit mother the end of that story. Was that she was forced essentially in the documentary argues into a conservatorship where her father took control of her state and her person. Again, according to the argument that she wasn't fit to do that herself. So the second thing the documentary does is dive into that conservative ship and asked the question. Is this really what Britney Spears blocked? So in your piece, you took a look back at how the media and I would say society in general treated her as she gained more and more fame and what's notable is how looking back There's so many moments involving the media and Brittany that air cringeworthy now but really didn't get much, if any scrutiny back then. Yes, I think one of the things the documentary does most effectively is run through what feels a lot like a worst hits real media interactions with Britney Spears. And this isn't just crazy. Tabloid headlines making fun of her when she's clearly struggling with real mental health issues, Bonified establishment interviewers like Diane Sawyer or Matt Lauer, and she'll see for going on these shows and you'll see people asking her when she's 16 about her breath and whether they're implants. And then you'll see Diane Sawyer, playing back to her a clip of the Maryland governor's wife, saying that if she could shoot Britney Spears, she would give him the opportunity because Britney Spears broke Justin Timberlake's heart essentially in that that's really bad example. For kids, you'll see Matt Lauer basically. Confronting her with the question of whether she is the horrible mother. All of it is laced in this kind of nonchalant misogyny that I think we all considered sort of standard sort of normal, totally acceptable and watching these things back in the day, watching almost every late night host just totally rip into her. It seemed like Of course, this is OK. And even of course, there's the matter of comedy. Watching it now it is just shocking. Grotesque. It seems like our cultural reaction today is precisely the opposite of what it was back then. I'm joined by Molly Roberts, Washington Post editorial writer who wrote a column for the post on a new Britney Spears documentary and the reaction to it. You also explain in your piece the time and this idea that society was trying to get closer to celebrities. There was this push Kind of make them into. You know, normal people talk about that aspect of all of this. Yeah, This was just around the time that you would look at those tabloids that you could get in the grocery checkout aisle, and they have a page on them, said something like stars. They're just like us. And it would show you pop stars getting coffee, for example, or just stepping out of the house to get the newspaper. But they were wearing sweat pants and they didn't look as Stunningly attractive as they do in more managers, photos and the idea there was well. We want to bring them down to our level. We don't just want to aspire to their family want to aspire to relate to them, And I think that Part of the attempts to relate. Let us to do things like make fun of them when they were having real problems, things that aren't funny because that was a way of bringing them down more tar level and making them feel like they really were Maurin reach. I think Britney Spears suffered a lot from our impulse to do just that. You know what I was thinking about Britney Spears following this documentary and all of the reaction to it. We have a tendency in this country to build people up and then to tear them down and then sometimes, depending on who they are, and the circumstances, give them a second chance and build them back up again. We've seen it time and time again. Tiger Woods would be a good example of that. But to me, the difference with Britney was She really wasn't doing anything wrong to beat Orange down. She just got caught up in the tabloid frenzy. And it seems like all of that led to a breakdown, which we all watched and and in. A lot of cases didn't really handle right. Probably not how we would handle a celebrity going through a mental health crisis like that today. Yeah, I think that that's exactly right. I think that we basically wrote a story for Britney. And then when we wrote it, it came into being and when she was trying to do was just to live her life. But we weren't going to allow her to do that on her own terms. And so now when we asked the question, and when the judge asked the question of whether she needs to be under the conservatorship It's hard to say, because she's not allowed to speak, but Even if it's true, it doesn't have results from our insistence that she was never capable in the first place, the narrative that she was never capable. The paparazzi were desperate to prove so they pursued her without quarter constantly, and it was partly that That drove her to the place. She ended up. I'm joined by Molly Roberts, Washington Post editorial writer Talking about this new Britney Spears documentary and the reaction to it now. This doesn't excuse some of what we see in this documentary by any means, And I certainly don't want this to come office sounding like slut shaming or anything like that..

"W F L. A I would never see him Tampa Bay on this Friday. January 29th. I'm Brian Gorman with me this evening, Reggie on the board and joining me Now I have columnist for Business Insider Josh Barrow, who you can follow on Twitter at J. Barrow to talk about this week's stock market volatility involving stocks like Gamestop and AMC and Josh. Thanks for taking a few minutes to chat with us about this. Look, I'm certainly no expert on the stock market, and I think like a lot of Americans Their parts of the story that can get a little hard to comprehend if you don't live in that world, But I do like to think I have a little bit of common sense. And while I'm certainly not shedding a tear for hedge funds, or the super wealthy, losing money and look, some people can navigate a short squeeze and make some money, more power to you. But the issue I've had is something you laid out really well in a recent column, the reality of game stops value doesn't match the markets valuation of it right now. I don't think you have to be a CNBC analyst. Understand that's eventually going to be a problem. Yes. No, that's right. I mean, the value keeps fluctuating Last I looked, it's around 300. It's gotten over 400 per share. On. So that implies that game stop is worth somewhere in the ballpark of, you know, between 20 and almost $30 billion for comparison. That's the on the upper end of that range is what best buy is worth Best Buy has about three times as many employees about five times as many sales. Most importantly, best buy makes money and made about a billion and a half dollars in 2019, while Gamestop lost more than $400 million. Game stops. Business has been in structural decline because they sell their a physical retailer selling video games. The video game trade has been moving online increasingly not just through shipping of video games, but through downloads on so the company has been troubled, and there had been a dispute among investors. There were, as has been noted this week. There were a lot of investors that took short positions on game stop that is betting Its share price would fall. There were other investors who said, you know, actually, Gamestop can successfully pivot on go back to being profitable. They'll close some stores. They'll move back. They'll move toward doing more online retailing and they will succeed. And so there. That's the first thing to note that not everybody in finance. Not all the big guys were shorts in this. There are people who were long game stop all along. They have made a killing. Because of what all of these posters on reddit have done. The this dispute over Gamestop came to the attention of the Wall Street bets Subreddit on Do you started to see a lot of investors, many of them who are small investors, although I think we should note That people who are who are serious people who work in the industry who have a lot of money. They can also post on reddit message boards. We shouldn't assume that everybody involved in this movement is some little guy, right? This isn't just you know, a bunch of people who are barely getting by yet have not only had the time but also had the wherewithal to pull off. Short squeeze end just happened to have the money sitting around to do something like that, right? And even if you're a small player in this, you had some money that you were able to put in the stock market. And so there's been some narratives online about how like this is like the poor rising up and this is an extension of occupy Wall Street. If you're trading a brokerage account, you have some money. It doesn't mean that you're a big guy, but this is about This is about middle income investors. Basically, I have a lot of people who have more time on their hands more money on their hands cause they're not traveling. I'm not going to restaurants they may have gotten into trading back last spring, and the stock market has done great since last spring. Bitcoin has also done rate since last spring. So if you started dabbling in investing Orrin doing weirder and and more aggressive things in investing, it's quite plausible that you made money over that period. Not because you were smart, but just because the whole market went up, and so I think that has gotten people a little bit greedy. But so basically, there are two stories about what has driven Gamestop through the roof. The short, interesting game stop was really high. Now there's been a There's been a miss description of this where people say that There were so many shares sold short that it was more than everyone who was long game stop. It would be impossible for all the short sellers to get out. That's not quite right. That's based on a misunderstanding of this, but But the short, interesting game stop was very high, and what that meant was when people started buying and all these before posting about by game stop. That pushes the price up, and if you have sold the stock short, you have to borrow it in order to sell it on Daz. The price goes up that becomes more and more costly for you to do in the person you've borrowed it from. You have to put up more collateral so that you can stay there. And so that squeezes a lot of the short sellers. They they have to get out of their short position by buying stock. Because they can't afford to stay in the position with stock getting so expensive. And when all those short sellers go out and start buying stock instead of selling it that pushes the price up more, which uses more of the other short sellers, and it could be a self fulfilling prophecy. No, that's been happening here. But you also have people just posting like, you know, we're gonna rocket this to the moon, and it should be $1000 a share s O. Some of it is basically just a more ordinary stock bubble. Where you have irrational exuberance around the price, and that is also pushing the price up. And as you note Fundamentals of game Stop. Do not regardless of whether you by the short seller story.

"I'm Ryan Gorman with me this evening, Reggie on the board coming up at 7 35. I'll talk to staff writer for the dispatch Sara Isgur. We're going to spend some time going through a bunch of the different allegations of fraud and voter irregularities. Some of the different lawsuits that the Trump campaign has brought forward so we'll really get into all of that. I think it would be a very informative segment. Sarah knows campaigns. She knows elections and she knows the law. Perfect person to do all of that. So again, that's coming up for you at 7 35 where things stand right now, just to recap the current official electoral vote count Biden in 2 53 trumpet to 17 the reason that If you turn on the TV, some of the networks have trump to 13. That's because Alaska is still counting. Trump's gonna win the four electoral college votes from Alaska. So I'm just lumping that in with what he already has the states where we're still monitoring the results. Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Nevada and Arizona. The phone lines are open. I haven't gotten to take any calls because Election night and on Wednesday night the post election show those were national shows, and then last night, the president had his news conference that kind of backed everything up. For us, and then I had some guests, but I do want to go back to the phones here. 809 69 93 50 two's the number 809 69 93 52. I'll start with Don in Tampa, Don, thanks for the call. Time. I just wanted to call the, uh, Thank you. War. What you're doing. I listen to this radio station all day long. From about nine o'clock in the morning so late at night. And I would do the same thing over and over and over again. And you come across with Very refreshing to knowledge. What the truth is, and I just want to call Let you know that after hearing your last caller Well, thank you very much done. I appreciate that. And you know, I got to tell you I've been a little frustrated with some of what I've seen on TV in particular. Forget about Talk radio. We know what that's all about. But I think John King on CNN, Steve Kornacki on MSNBC, the ones that are handling the maps and the vote counts and all of that Bret Bear over at Fox. There's some good good reporters over at Fox News that have been very good, but I've been extremely disappointed with. I'll give you a couple of examples. Jake Tapper at CNN. I was watching. I had him on in the background a little bit again. I've got all three cable news networks on and I'm just, you know, monitoring them throughout the day while I'm doing my work and putting everything together, and I heard some of what he had to say today and just outrageous. You know, I don't get it like This is an opinion show so I can give my opinion on it. And I d'oh. But like if you listened Election night or if you listened on Wednesday night, our post election coverage When I do the national shows, it's not those aren't opinion shows. I'm there. The host And to just let you know what's happening and even a lot of this show honestly because we're in the middle of election results coming back. I just don't think it's the timeto. I will have plenty to say opinion wise about what I think has transpired and what we need to do going forward All of that. But the analysis part It's not difficult. To just offer the straight narrow analysis and keep things fair. It's not hard to dio and I'm somebody who's very opinionated yet I could do it. I turn out like Anderson Cooper with hey, had eternal comment the other night. Some of what I've seen on MSNBC, Of course, some of the Fox hosts. I mean, it's just I don't think it helps this country at all. The people who have really been focused on the map and the numbers and the returns and all of that. I think they've done a very good job. But I think some of the host some of the anchors, I think they've made clowns out of themselves, to be quite honest with you now. Earlier today, Um I was going through a couple of difference Things, including I wanted to take a look back and kind of assess where I wass. So I made some predictions on Monday night. And I did the Electoral College map and I did the Senate map. And I made my predictions talked about him on the show posted my maps on social media again. You can follow me on Facebook Twitter at Ryan E. Gorman and I told you there were four states that I just didn't feel very comfortable with. They could go either way That was Florida, North Carolina, Georgia and Arizona. But the rest of the states and the rest of the pics I was very comfortable with. And the results. That's assuming everything goes how we expect it to go and again. I'm pretty confident the ultimate outcome, and I wouldn't say this if I wasn't confident. If I didn't really believe this was where things were headed. I think it's going to be gentle Biden with 306. Electoral college votes and President Trump with 232. But I looked at what I laid out compared to the reality of the situation now. And this is what I got right?.

Thanks so much for taking a few minutes to join us and let me start with the tissue. We were actually talking about this earlier in the show because you have the governor trying to figure out a way to potentially Open up visitation at some long term care facilities. It's very difficult balance. I wouldn't want to be making that decision. You did an investigation into Florida's long term care centers and how some have been disciplined for putting residents at risk for Covad 19. What did you uncover during this investigation? Right. So of course, it's been all covert all the time. And all the so much effort and focus has been on these long term care facilities and, of course, the residents and staff aside being The most vulnerable to this virus. So there's been so much attention on them specifically, so much support provided But yet still you've got we took a look. You know, after four months, five months Governor essentially shut these facilities down to the public. We found facilities. Nearly a dozen of them who had been disciplined by the state of suspended in some cases were some pretty egregious violations, including everything from a facility in the Tampa area. Brendan That had no covert 19 policy in place to begin with, but alone, its staff not wearing the proper personal protective gear. In other cases, you had Covert positive patients being rooms with non Cupid residents. Yeah, that kind of co according I think was Was something that really took the secretary of the Agency for Healthcare Administration, sort of back when we spoke to her. That's I don't even know what to say. I mean, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out maybe don't room a cove impatient with the non covert patients in a long term care facility. That just seems common sense Several incidents of that several different facilities. And so yeah, it makes you wonder. Gosh, what? You know what What's going on? And look, you know, by and large and the Secretary's was very, very clear to point this out correctly and accurately that You know, there are some 4000 long term care centers of assisted living facilities. And so you know what? You're looking at one of these, You know, incident when you're talking, you know about it, you know, small fraction of the vast majority who are doing Things right and doing what they can with. Of course, you know, Always limited resource is always limited staff. But still when you hear these things, and you talk to the family members Of the people who are directly impacted by this. That's when you really think what is going on. Like what? You know, get it together. Now, did you hear when you were talking to family members, the fact that visitation had been suspended and rightly so. I think that was certainly the right move to make. But that also left ah layer of accountability missing where normally you have family members and friends going into these facilities. They can kind of see what's going on. Now. That was no longer the case and Was that part of the issue that allowed some of these facilities to get away with not doing the right thing and putting their residents at risk. Well, I think if you talk to any elder advocacy group, that's exactly what they're going to tell you. And I think that there's accuracy for that, right. I mean, part of you know the accountability is Family members being able to visit and seen firsthand what's happening. So we ended up talking to a group director. He spoke to the director of families for Better Care based in Texas. But this is what they do. And you know their point. Wass. Essentially, that is, look, you know, without families being able to visit your missing so much accountability there. Their point is state worker. State inspectors need to be in these facilities. More often, we know from the secretary of the Agency for Healthcare Administration that every scene home has been visited by state inspectors at least one since this pandemic began. What remains unclear at the time of our story was how often they've been back. And by the end of the evening, or rather, by the end of the day yesterday, we did get some work back from Thie agency that Ah assisted living facilities had not been visited a TTE least once, so those those inspections are currently ongoing, and those inspectors are actually happening on Lee when They're referred by either the Department of Health, County health departments or individual complaints. And so there is still a gap in that kind of coverage in the facilities that again are these hot dogs. This virus. We're joined by ABC action News reporter Katie Lagrone here on PM Tampa Bay, who did some great reporting on Florida's long term care center, some having been disciplined for putting residents at risk for covert 19 and when you say disciplined in your story, what exactly do you mean? What happened to these facilities and are they vulnerable to potential lawsuits from the families? There was a big discussion early on as to whether or not the governor was going to provide for some kind of immunity for these facilities. Tell us a little bit about that. Well, okay, so as far as the discipline we know that a number of these facilities their exhibitions were suspended, and you know even that you hear additions like Wait. Are they still admitting people and yes, A lot of these facilities are still admitting People. And in some cases, you know, fines, Penalties even ah, plans of action to you know, to be revisited in terms of lawsuits. You know, we did a story a couple months ago about lawsuits and sort of the need for loved ones. Family members to document everything as we continue. Going through this crisis. And you know that immunity? Yeah. Where does that stand? Has he has He made a decision on that the governor? I have no idea who you know. Would we know if he did? I mean, that's been out there for months. I reported on that at the beginning of this pandemic because right away Doctors. You know the medical field nursing homes. Local providers were calling for this. It's already past in several states, but I what I guess it hasn't passed yet here in Florida, but you know that's that's something, I think. That type of you know, the civil part of this is always gonna be part of the equation. And that's why any kind of advocate or you know, Elder attorneys going, Tio remind people Tio document who you're talking to what you're seeing. In the case of one of the folks who we had spoken to you for a story. They had actually placed a camera inside the room of their loved one. You know, letting everyone know this was just something that they had done when they have admitted their loved one a year ago, and you know that Yeah. I mean, that. That's kind of their way of documenting. Thanks. So you know, the civil part of this will be interesting to see Won't it? And equally interesting to see what if anything, the governor does to protect facilities. Look, you know, these facilities are dealing with a lot and they're you know, by and large You know doing it? Yes, The numbers are terrible Residents and staff and long term facilities account for way too many of these cases, nearly half of all deaths reported in the state. But you know, the resource is our are still slim, You know, rapid testing, and it is still an issue. Staff. Now you're dealing with staff who you know, are there They're just exhausted. You know, I mean, you talk to people and we'll talk about how you got that. There's only so many people who know you're losing people in this industry, you know, in terms of people just not being able to Continue are getting sick themselves..

"I'm Ryan Gorman with me this evening, Felix Vega and James Berland er on the board, joining us on the hotline right now we have Hillsborough County Economic Development Director Lindsey Kimble. Thank you so much for joining us for a few minutes. Lindsay, we appreciate it. Thank you so much for having me appreciate it. So first of all, tell us about Hillsborough County's Rapid response recovery program. What the program is and then what this means now that it's entering application Phase two. Sure so this program designed to help our locally owned businesses here in Hillsboro County. We know that they are the backbone of our economy. We want to do everything we can to help them maintain and survived. During this Cobain 19 crisis. That is so negatively impacted them. So we launched a program, which is designed to provide ah working capital that can provide reimbursement for payroll expenses. It also can provide a reimbursement for ah, those costs associated with preparing the workforce. For the new normals for buying sanitation supplies pp. Reconfiguring your office remote working costs. Those sorts of things talk a little bit about the hit that small businesses. Have taken heater into Tampa Bay area and in particular Hillsborough County, based on the small business owners that you've talked to throughout the course of this crisis. What are they telling you? Oh, my gosh. Right. It's just it's devastating. It's heartbreaking. Every application that I that we read that I've picked up has been just really heart wrenching stories of people you know, were full. This donor's put their heart and soul into their business. It's a family affair. A lot of time. Um, it's it's their lifeblood into Reed. You know the the economic injury that's been caused by this crisis in terms of loss of sales supply chain disruptions. Um, you know, customers not able to come out to their to their place of business because you know they've been either forced to close the non essential It's just really taken a hard toll and and to see that the revenue declines and the number of employees that have had to be laid off. It's just really. It's very stark. Are you finding that a majority of the businesses that you talked Teo and you attempt to help our ableto hang in there, or are you finding that many of them are just having to close down? Ah, the majority that we're talking to. You are able to continue. They are hanging on. It's it's you know, a tightrope walk right now for some of them. But they they're doing it. They're hanging in there. They're adapting their fighting new ways to reach customers. Like I said, through maybe online servicing or for restaurants, Of course, you know, transitioning more, too. To go opportunities and and leveraging some of the delivery services and having their own delivery services. People are even adding physically adding to go windows to their structures. That's another item that we can reimburse under our programs if they've had to add Physically adapt things in their building and the costs associated with that, So it's just, you know, it's all about just being resourceful Industrias. I just think that they're doing everything that they can survive. I'm joined by Hillsborough County Economic Development Director Lindsey Kimble, who's here to talk about the county's rapid response recovery program. Entering application. Phase two. Are there certain sectors, certain industries that you're finding have been hit harder than others. Well, certainly thie retail in the restaurant. The bars who all are qualified under this program to apply. Um, you know, certainly they've They've been impacted the personal services. You know so many applications from you nail salon in a hairdresser's and you know, I want to point out. One of those folks are are sold proprietors in a long time They're renting a spot in the shops. So particularly hair dresser example. I want to be really clear to every he's listening. You know, if you are a soul proprietor, you are eligible to apply. Ah, lot of times. You know the programs that were sold out by the feds and the state. That was a gap there In a lot of times in an FDA financing, there could be a gap for sole proprietors are program is open to sell proprietors. Um, So again, That's just a way that we're trying. Tio. We crafted a program that we wanted to fill The gaps that weren't left by people who are left out of everyone started the PPP program and the Idol loan program AA. Lot of folks got left behind. So we try to craft this program so we would target The smallest small of our small businesses first, and we're slowly expanding the program to cast a wider net. So as you mentioned the beginning of this interview nowhere in faced right now. And that has cast a wider net across the entire county. So this accounting program, But it doesn't matter if you're within a city limit or not, you're eligible if you meet the other criteria. You can apply for our county program. It's it's absolutely Countywide. Lindsay, this is Felix Vega. I want to get into some of those details because you have three different categories, depending on what kind of business you have in certain revenue requirements. Could you walk us through what those are turned for the businesses they qualify. Sure. So in your class. You want three different programs? Correct? Yeah, because there's the kickstart for small businesses. The backto work you mentioned, I think with really interesting is safe at work to make those safety improvements. Right, Right. So right, So we have three different programs on and they were crafted purposefully to hopefully address this three different specific needs of small businesses because, you know they're going very inside. Like I said, we have sole providers we have business is a small This could be anybody up, Tio. You know, 101 100 employees and in our program, we tracked that by employees size and by revenue..

"gorman" Discussed on 5 Questions with Dan Schawbel
"Dan Shaw Bell. My goals to create the best advice from the world's smartest and most interesting people by asking them just five questions. My guest today is the founding member of the Black Crowes. Steve Gorman born in Michigan Michigan. Steve joined his elementary schools band playing the drums. At Age ten. He moved to Kentucky aspiring to be a guitarist that in college. He was a broadcast major while playing drums with several bands. In one thousand nine hundred eighty six. He formed the band lack of interest with his friends to record their first demo tape a year later he started playing with the black roads for the first nine albums then eventually rejoined in two thousand five more. Recently Gorman founded the band trigger happy and author of the book hard to handle which was named after the Black Crowes hit song. I caught up with Steve to learn more about how he was able to navigate a multi decade career such celebrated ban and what he's learned along the way you've been part of the Black Crowes for over two decades. Witnessing the success struggle and breakout firsthand. How you able to mentally and emotionally handle the highs and the lows in varying degrees of success Initially you know the easiest part and the most fun and all the things that feel the way you think a band is GonNa feel or actually in the local bandies no stress all a dream and the pursuit of trying to make things actualize to realize something young and you have nothing else to concern yourself with. That was all great. Once we hit the road and had a record out that turned into a hit things went sideways. Pretty quick in a lot of ways and not just for me for everybody. The way I handled it was to put my head down and say well as long as we work hard and as long as we stay together and united will get through anything. I'm a very team oriented guy Not Everybody in the band had that same philosophy and power struggles and and An Egos and insecurities that we all had to contend with. They showed themselves pretty early. And unfortunately we were so young that we got set in our ways and kind of continued the band for as you said. I'll actually almost three decades without really ever stopping and really doing the work to figure out how to be more effective at communicating and working together. He say you'RE A team oriented guy. What do you believe are the most important qualities of a teammate? Or in your case a band member and which the wants to avoid and why you have to know your strengths and and just as important if not more you have to know your weaknesses and you have to be willing to let other people do things. You're not so great at or that you aren't interested in doing. I mean to me. A band is not an extension of anyone or any five people's emotional or mental psyche wellbeing. None of those things have banned is. It's you know I never looked at it as a business. But it's an easy thing to compare it to. It's a mom and pop shop. Somebody needs to run the register. Somebody needs to stock the shelves. Somebody needs to figure out the books and in a band. You have all those responsibilities. You don't think about that as a local band. You just WANNA play shows. You just want him to get a record deal. It's important as you grow. And as the band's career grows that you evolve and take a realistic at what's required. We entered an entirely new landscape and stuck to our guns as to how we viewed the world as a local band and it was really damaging I think ultimately communication and or you know better analogy actually a basketball team. Someone rebounds someone passes someone shoots and if everybody understands their role in respects everyone else's contributions. You can go as far as you want. If you were to start another band right now. What would you do differently based on what you've experienced and why while I have a bad actually called trigger hippy? That is is in a lot of how that band operates is based on things I learned with the Black Crowes. Which is it's okay. It's perfectly fine to have somebody establishing the tone and the direction but you know the old adage you can go faster alone but much further together. I JUST WANNA keep make sure that everybody's on the same page. Everybody knows why we're doing anything we're doing and feel everybody out. You don't have to allow one person's opinion to derail an operation but everybody's opinion as valid and everybody at least needs to be heard and understood. What is the most important business advice you've learned as an artist? You wish you knew when you first started. Oh man you know. Every day I would probably have a different answer but I can say that the most important things that we were we were given great advice early on and we didn't necessarily follow it. I can't say thankfully that we were ever misguided or led down the wrong path. We were given great great opportunity and great advice. The thing that we probably struggled with the most and I'm including myself in that of course Separating separating the art from the business we went and made records and once those records are in the CAN. The goal is to get as many people as you possibly can to listen to them and you know once you've created your art sell it is foreign as wide as you possibly can and don't you know we had A. We struggled with feeling like that made us sell out so that it weakened the music by trying to do promotion and to me you know. The the art is only of use if it receives an audience. I think separating the two worlds you know like art and business can co. Mingle quite freely as long as you remember which one is which and not try to combine the two. I think it's like a separation of church and state when you combine them. They both get weakened. And what is your best piece of career advice? follow your gut because your gut is ultimately the one thing you're gonNa have with you forever and when you know the biggest mistakes and regrets. I have aren't when I made mistakes. It's when I made a mistake that my gut new was a mistake and I did it anyway when I say I'm a team player. The downside of that was to a fault I was a team player is a much younger man I would. I would give way to what I thought was for the greater good despite my central nervous system screaming at me. No this is a serious mistake because ultimately when it's all said and done you're still the one who's waking up in the middle of the night with your subconscious tapping shoulder going. You knew and you didn't do anything about it. So you know your gut is really all you have right or wrong. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom Steve to follow his journey can read his book hard to handle and find them on facebook twitter instagram where he shares announcements live performances travels pictures of his family and his cat. We hope you enjoyed today's show. And the amazing advice. Our guests provided. Remember that you can only benefit from advice if you packed on it before you do.

feels that way but we've become a big government country and even with Donald Trump in office don't forget that the house did approve a yesterday a one point four trillion dollar spending package then he's looking at sign in it I mean I hope tonight in his rally that he brings out the bill it starts going through it and saying nope nope nope not gonna do it nope not gonna sign and I told her I

little frightening.
