Author Andrew Klavan Describes New Book 'A Strange Habit of Mind'

"With Andrew clavin. He is the grand master of the Andrew clavin subscribe, hit the little notifications bell on YouTube, watch it. He's allowed me to transcribe, thanks to Eric we have transcribed his yaf lecture. I'm going to be posting it because you need to read it. If you're not into YouTube or whatever read it, it is that good. However, he just is a grapho maniac. He doesn't sleep. He says that repeatedly on his show. So he's got a brand new book out, a strange habit of mine, no spoilers, but what's the series about? The series is about a parent college professor who's got a very dark past who's got a very violent and dark past. And in this one, he comes face to face with a billionaire social media tycoon. From South Africa? Who he thinks is canceling people in a very egregious way. And it's a story. You know, we were talking about anti heroes in the break. It's a story about a guy trying to go from being an anti hero to becoming a hero that really is what the series is about. And how do you do that? How do you get past the past into the future into being a better man? And here he finds himself faced with questions of race, questions of gender, all the things that are bothering us today and making his way through it as an honest man. And these are issues in the real world. No, I just make this stuff up. Sounds like a good movie script. However, however, no one else would have published this, but mysterious press seriously.

Journalist Julie Kelly on the Endemic Corruption in the FBI

"I'm back with Julie Kelly. Julia, I was asking you about the fact that the Democrats can't stop themselves, it seems they tried to impeachment, they tried Russia collusion, and it looks like this is they're on a quest in search of a crime. They have their target, they have their suspect, they have their person they want to indict and it's just a matter of what do we get this guy on. And interestingly, it seems that so much so many of the pundits and the media and so on are all sort of brazen disregard of law. They really are. So going back to what you said at the end of our first segment, Debbie is right. I'm sure she'll be happy to hear that. But of course, she's seen how this plays out in places like Venezuela. But also, we see that this DoJ is producing all of these imaginary charges. I mean, you have this DoJ, Matthew gray is the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, who is charged about 20 Americans with seditious conspiracy. This is such a rare charge. There's not even sentencing guidance for it. No American has ever been convicted of it. Yet Matthew graves managed to go to a grand jury in Washington D.C. city that voted 93% for Joe Biden convinced them that nonviolent people like the oath keepers who walked into the building and opened door carried no weapons, assaulted no one. Didn't even vandalize property, that they somehow are guilty of seditious conspiracy. So this Justice Department doesn't have to convince anyone except a grand jury in Washington D.C. of these imaginary crimes. I mean, you have people going to jail for years on a charge of obstruction of an official proceeding, which I think is one of the counts that they are going to try to charge Trump with.

Glenn Kirschner Breaks Down the Data on Trump's Impending Indictment

"Obviously the hubris in this reporting, the Trump is, oh, I'm not concerned witch hunt. It'll be fine. But I mean, this is obviously we know from the two pat subpoenas this week that this has reached into the Oval Office, and obviously there is reporting that Trump's attorneys are counseling him that he may be indicted. So what do you take from all of this? From the latest recording. Three, really important data points, staff one. We saw the Rolling Stone reporting that Donald Trump's legal team is preparing for him to be indicted and this is what I love. This is why Donald Trump's legal team is like the worst legal team imaginable. Except for Alex Jones. Yeah, the good point. They're saying, we are preparing a defense that will be putting it on quote the fall guys. What did we see a couple of days later in last night's CNN reporting? Donald Trump has been counseled to cut off all contact with and not talk to Mark Meadows. The only reasonable inference we can draw from that is Meadows is flipping, right? Maybe he has flipped, maybe he hasn't flipped. That's what you counsel somebody when it comes to, you know, one of your buddies who is now cooperating with the feds do not talk to him anymore. And then the third data point is the pat cipollone subpoena to the grand jury and Steph all testimony is not created equal. Because the J 6 testimony that pat cipollone gave, we all saw it. Some of it on videotape, he wouldn't answer the big questions. He wouldn't talk about what Donald Trump said or did. He wouldn't talk about Trump's crimes. He gets away with that in the January 6th committee because they don't have a way to compel him. They can't test that privilege once he asserts it. When we get witnesses in the grand jury, we can test that privilege. We can overcome it in real time because when pat cipollone and the grand jury says executive privilege, I've done this a hundred times, not with executive privilege, but with attorney client privilege. Fifth Amendment privilege against self incrimination, spousal privilege. Doctor patient privilege, et cetera we walk over to chief judge barrel howells, chambers, the chief judge of the D.C. federal district court who has supervisory authority over the grand jury, and we litigate it in real time, and she rules, I predict, Joe Biden has an invoked the privilege, so you lose because Donald Trump doesn't get to invoke it. And there's a crime fraud exception. So belt and suspenders, you lose twice. Now, pat cipollone, go back in there and testify

The Inflation Reduction Plan Only Inflates Taxes

"The president scored a couple of wins, the chips act he's doing a dance, although that was bipartisan. And of course taking out zawahiri is a grand and good thing. And I give him credit for pulling the twigger, I give Nancy Pelosi, try to forgo into Taiwan, but we're still stuck with this reconciliation bill. I've explained it this way. We don't know where senator sinema is if they get her and the vice president and everybody on the floor. They can pass this nightmare, which is it's called the inflation reduction act, not about inflation, doesn't reduce anything, and it raises taxes and spending. And as Joe Manchin not acting, it's collapsing. First, what's the story on senator sinema? What do we know? Yeah, we don't know on that. She's been very quiet on it. As she's going through it and she'll make her decision when she makes her decision, but you are correct. They're calling this the inflation reduction act except the problem is when they actually scored it, it doesn't reduce inflation. They say it reduces deficits as well, except when they scored it, they said it doesn't reduce deficits either. What it does is it increase taxes during a recession in those taxes specifically hardest hit manufacturers in the United States. So while we have a supply chain issue, there are raising taxes on manufacturing and making it harder for them. It does hire thousands and thousands of new IRS agents to do audits. The focus of there's no focus on the audit. So it's small businesses. People in every income bracket that are out there that they're going after with new IRS agents, it does raise the cost of natural gas, which is going to raise the cost of energy. It does make it harder to be able to develop new drugs and my favorite piece of it. It literally takes quote unquote savings on the healthcare side from Medicare and takes it out of Medicare, which is already having problems financially and moves it over to the Affordable Care Act. So it literally takes money from the investment for 76 year olds and moves it over and gives subsidies to 26 year olds instead. So there's a lot of problems in this bill that it creates more issues than solves issues.

Take a look at the new PGA Tour schedule and you'll understand why players are upset. Vegas to Japan. To South Carolina to Bermuda to Mexico. He says, for the viewers, it's a flick of a remote. For us, it's 20 hour travel days and tens of thousands of dollars in expenses. That tweet already has 1400 likes in 25, 30 minutes, and then he follows it up by saying, to himself, we should be playing in major cities, places where they have an NFL football team, not Bermuda and Puerto Rico. Us little guys have feelings too. All right? He has caught a ton of shit for these tweets, but he's right. But he is right. Listen to that. Listen to that, that 6 week, that's what 5 weeks Vegas to Japan to South Carolina to Bermuda to Mexico. Vegas to Japan? Yeah, so to South Carolina. So they're going to be the little guys are going to want to play Vegas because it's really in the season because it's a wraparound. So they want to get off to a decent start. If they get into Japan, they're 100% going because they're pretty sure it doesn't have a cut. There's no way they're going to have an event in Japan with no cuts. So 1000% they're going. And then I guess I guess presumably. You take that off, I would guess. Where are they playing? I didn't even see where they're playing. But they're playing somewhere. Like the golf course.

"Spare room. It's fine. You can stay here as long as you like or do. Like a photon. The champions you bleed has changed after the Spanish Grand Prix, we only have one more week to find out how Charlotte Claire will retire for a second race in a row at the Monaco Grand Prix. That's all to come on this episode of box of neutrals. Oh, you want to listen to bucks of neutrals? Well, how about you fill out this form? Yellow one. Oh. For the Spanish Grand Prix standards. This was a pretty good Spanish Grand Prix. I think we got a lot of things happening, but a lot of, you know, pit stops and Formula One related paraphernalia. I thought this was quite a good one. Yeah, it was good. I don't know if it was bonkers. I don't know if it was chaos, the way some other people are calling it, but it was good. I mean, I don't know what spared this, but lately I've been watching replays of the race, but I set up to watch this one. And I had in the back of my mind, the old ghost of porcelain has passed and sort of thought, now I'll give this one a chance. Sounds great, I did, because it was there was plenty on offer. Maybe there's a connection there. Maybe if you watch more of them live. Please watch the Monaco Grand Prix for all of our sakes. And thank you. All right. I'll be more excited. Just for you. Just for me. And listen, of course. Of course. I mean, it was extremely hot that seemed to be there. I'm always skeptical. I don't know if you have a side. Whenever you hear them talking, whenever Simon loses, we start talking about, oh, it's hot. It's really hot here on the ground. You can fry an egg on the asphalt. And inevitably you go and check the weather and it's like, oh, it's 28 20. But it was actually quite warm, unseasonably warm. It's almost like a climate is changing. And that seemed to really shake up the order here. Perhaps to the detriment, or certainly the detriment one reason or another, of all my child le clue, whose engine decided it was too hot, wanted to go home. Too much. Shouldn't have thought about it too much. It's too hot today. And packed it in along with his championship lead, considering it's only what was it too round to go? Was Australia two or three rounds ago? Whatever it was. When we were talking about wow, hey, they just bloody dominating. It's all over. Yeah, it's really, boy. I'm finding this one had to peek a little bit because as soon as you think I'm in with a shot because we're stepping cape's retiring all of a sudden he comes out and he looks like, oh wow, this might be the first race ever step in finishes that he doesn't win. Except. It'll win. Because haywire, we didn't actually really get a proper reading of where they both were on form because max had a little spinny spin. But before he could really recover and challenge then the clue decided to just give up, he just got bored. So we didn't actually get to see who would have won the fight, but I mean, it would have been an interesting battle, I think, between the two. Yeah, that is the big question coming out of Spain, isn't it? Because it was billed as the big race that we find out after the upgrade packages are applied. As Ferrari fixed the tyre problems and so on. And in the end, we didn't get any of those answers. The start of leclerc's race looked pretty good, I guess, so that's promising if you're a Ferrari fan or a leclerc fan boy. I do exist, I guess. You're allowed to like what you like. Whoever you want. It's fine. But we don't know, I guess we'll find well we won't really find out Monaco either will be because Monaco is a weird grace. What's after that on the calendar? Azerbaijan. Yeah, that's always weird as well. So just keep yourself into those coming up. I was coming up, aren't they? Just a bunch of weirdos. Who invited them? I tell you what though. I mean, it might have been a hard in temperature, but all the drivers were getting hot under the helmets inside this race. It was wonderful. One for the high blood pressure. I themed around a thing. No one was happy. No one was happy at all. Clay was unhappy because he lost a certain quote unquote win. Verstappen was furious because he thought, oh, it calves down here. Bloody Perez is unhappy. You're playing my car, and he didn't want to. Hamilton was unhappy because he wound up being lost and he wanted to retire. I retire. Retire. What are you talking about? No one was happy. No one was happy. Yes, you're right. Even Carlos Sainz wasn't happy, but that's just a general disposition I think it was for you Ferrari career, unfortunately. He's got resting unhappy things. You want jostle seems happy most of the time. It's kind of true. He seems pretty. He's still in the honeymoon phase, isn't he where everything's great at Mercedes? I mean, Mercedes did actually look pretty good this weekend, but he's managed to rise above all the unhappiness that's been pervasive with Mercedes Benz because he's just bloody happy to be there isn't he George and good on it. Just in one of his one of those ways where he was finally in a sort of a fight for a podium. So that's good. I mean, Mercedes, of course, went without the challenges and being told at the end. A million pieces that would be good too. So I think about this, but this is the unhappy Rand, and I thought it was a good race. I don't want to leave on a down note. No, well, maybe we need more races where the drivers get angry. Maybe we need more, right? Maybe we need to like, you know, stick them in terrible traffic on the way to the track more often in the morning or make sure that they don't have the correct milk available or if your total wolf the correct type of bread. Can we start it? Don't you get me started? But what about some extra step and obviously there's some question of a wind and he spins and he has to recover whatever then there was a DRS button. So how did you read all of this DRS? It's just more unreliability from red bullies than although what I have enjoyed in the aftermath of this is that there's and I'm interested to know what you think about this because it suddenly being great up a little bit like it's been made a little bit more obscure because there's been this implication that actually Verstappen in his rage of it not working the first time. Just kept hitting it and opening and then closing it himself without realizing it because we saw on the TV a couple of times, didn't we? That it would open and then close a medium and there seems to be some suggestion from Helmut Marko and I think even Christian Horner that actually all those times it was closing because he'd just press the button so many times. Proving that he goes, unlike it's clearly maybe they need to install a button that's more like an elevator button that does nothing. And that way when he's in raids to get it won't be a problem. So it's hard to actually know how much of this was clearly an unreliability factor, wasn't he didn't have any qualifying as well. But I don't know there's a bit of the bit of a cranky Max Verstappen in there as well. They must have been something behind it because he wouldn't have been hearing the button a million times thinking it wasn't opening. If it hadn't happened the first time and he hit it and it didn't open. So you can say he contributed to the problem. He made it worse, but I mean we can't all have been at his own thing is I mean this is raining world champion max. I think he doesn't do. This takes like that.

"And dressed in a flowing white tunic. They rode around the elaborate set which featured a huge sparkling yellow sphere as its centerpiece, representing the sun. We all watched as David and his horse were locked into a cage. Which was then raised 15 feet into the air. We're carefully watching David and the horse in the cage when suddenly. They disappear. The giant yellow sphere opens to reveal. David and his horse. Hi, I'm David dreamer, and welcome to my wonder dome. Now, you think you just witnessed me and rainbow here disappear from that cage. And then reappear from within that sun. But in reality, I was in the sun the whole time. You see, the horse and rider you saw go up into that platform were actually a body double. What is he doing? He's revealing how the trick was done. Cut the commercial. Sorry, David's the boss. Ready camera one? See, these are all just tricks. But later in the show, you're going to experience something very special. You'll watch me disappear for real. Now I want you to forget everything you ever thought magic was before tonight. And prepare to be amazed. As the show continued, David revealed trick after trek. It's a mirror. See? All of his most famous illusions exposed. You see it's actually a trick crate with a hidden door on top. He even had a section of the show devoted to sleight of hand. And when I passed the coin to this hand, I'm actually doing what we call a French drop. By the time he was ready for the grand finale, he had exposed the secrets to 18 different allusions. There's a secret passage in the stairway that leads to this hole in the stage floor. So that's how that's done. When he came back from commercial, David was surrounded by his audience, all seated comfortably on pillows. Welcome back. Tonight I've been showing you all the tricks we use to make pretend magic. But now I'm going to show you all something very real. Something that's as real as the universe and goes to the very foundation of what it means to be a part of it. Through the practice of transcendental meditation, I have experienced wonders that are indescribable with words. So tonight I am going to give you a demonstration of this magical practice. For the next 20 minutes, I'll be meditating. And I'd like you folks in the audience to join me. And you at home too. And near the end of our meditation together, something very magical will happen. I will disappear. As you can see, I'll be sitting on this raised platform. There's no smoke. No mirrors, and no trapdoors. I'll simply be seated here with everything visible and in plain sight. You're all helping me with this. Your energy is amplifying mine, and we are all in this together. It's very easy. All you need is a mantra. And I'm going to give you one right now. Your mantra is a secret, so don't tell anyone. Now I'm going to say your mantra, and then I want you to say it back to me. Your mantra is. Everything is possible..

He actually he wants to be a magician when he grows up. It's so cute. Do you have any advice? Sure. I mean, my advice to any aspiring magician is the advice I have for everyone, which is meditate, at least once a day. Just get him connected to the universe. It'll change his life. Okay, thanks. Marvelous show tonight. Thank you so much. You're too kind. I'm Joe Schwartz. This is my wife, Judy. I loved when you made the old lady turn into a little girl. You can show me how to do that. You know there's actually a woman in Honduras who turned back the aging process through meditation. You don't say. Mister dreamer, Stan Atkins. I have a new magic shop in Rochester the dabbler. You should stop by. Share some secrets. Sure, next time I'm in town. Great. But Judy. Yes. I have to ask, are you familiar with the maharishi Mahesh yogi? I can't say that I am. Judy, the whole world is a dream. And when you wake up, you'll see the reality of life, which is truly glorious. Their universe is bubbling over with wonder. The mind is so magical. It can do anything. Magic is real. It's as real as you and me. Hey, David, can I steal you for a moment? You sure? Judy and Joe, it was a pleasure. Likewise. It's so nice to meet you. What's up? I just got a call from Stephen at the network. They were ecstatic about tonight's show. Oh, that's wonderful. They're still waiting to hear back about the ratings. But they already want to book another special for late June. That's 6 months from now. Yeah. I don't know, Pamela. Well, it's probably a lot of money. I get it. I just don't know. Just hear them out. David, we are so proud of the work that we've done together. Over the past three years, we have attracted some of the largest audiences in television history and we want to show you how valuable you are by paying you $750,000. For one hour of television. That is how much we love you. Wow. Plus any backend on syndication. Look, if I'm gonna keep doing this, it needs to reflect where I'm at. Right now. I mean, people seem really into watching me do this faco stuff. When the universe right in front of them is already so beautiful and so magical. I just don't want to be fake anymore. I love that. I mean, David, we're on board. Let's make it real. We'll get back to fundamentals. We'll really, really connect with people. I get that. And we can make that happen. That means complete creative control. Well, no one gets complete creative control. I mean, Johnny and Mary don't even get complete creative control. Not for a live TV special. Okay. Well, thanks for the opportunity, but David will pass. Well, David, boy, you're wife, drives a hard bargain. Ex-wife. Okay. Let's talk about this. At the age of 27, David dreamer became the highest paid television performer in history, and was given complete creative control. I was a huge gamble, but I guess having David was worth it. I mean, he wasn't just the biggest magician of all time. He was one of the biggest performers anywhere. I only wish I'd known how far he'd take it. Okay, so you're locked in a wooden coffin. It's fully equipped with a heart monitor. The coffin slowly lowered into a 6 foot pit. And there's like a bunch of hooded men shoveling. See where you're going. Right, so you're running out of air, your heart rate slows. Everyone freaks out. Oh, what should we do? Should we dig him out? Oh, we need to save him, but suddenly the head dirt shovel or raises his hand to stop. Snaps off his hood. He is David dreamer. Tim la rose. It's uplifting. You defy death. No, I don't want to end in a graveyard. It should be, should be all about beauty and wonder. Maybe you should be buried in a rose garden. Oh, my God, yes, and the rose is wilt when you die, and then they spring back to life. I love it. I hate it. Okay, then? What do you want to do? I. I want to do something real. What, you want to do another escape? No. I'm not. I'm more interested in the potential of the human mind. Ah, you mean like mentalism. No, I'm not talking about tricks. You're not? No. He prefers illusions. No, guys, please. I'm talking about real magic. Well, the realest magic I've ever seen is this guy does contact juggling with a crystal ball. How are you? Michael motion, he does amazing work. Why aren't you listening to me? What? You want to do something real? I. I want to do something magical. Okay, now I'm confused. David, what exactly do you want to do? When he was 7 years old, David tuned into The Ed Sullivan Show to watch The Beatles. But it wasn't the fab four that shook him up. It was the very next act.

"Come. He was gorgeous. He was different. Veteran stage magician Harry Milton was an early mentor of davids, and became his lead illusion designer. Well, magic was totally in a rut. It was just the same. Old vaudeville shtick, but David found a way to break through all that. For David, it was out with rabbits and top hats and in with peace and love. He looked like a rockstar. But it was more than just a look. David made magic beautiful. You know there are people who believe that our minds are much more powerful than we ever thought possible. And that we can actually use our minds to make physical objects. Disappear. So if that were the case, it might look a little something. Like this. And what we saw next was nothing short of astounding. In the world of magic, everything is possible..

"I shit on him and we say it's getting e web's the a remember those battles and like the the i'll give you an example like a moment shade between ricardo in and norris. You know if it was a world championship battle it wouldn't have been the same is cogil But because it's a it's a team effort and it was attained grand prix victory as opposed to an individual if it because the not rising for any individual plaudits really at the moment. Let's say aiden wanted to use time if they are Championship contenders the picture. All altogether in terms of that dynamic saint before you say novelty in roseburg know. They absolutely love that. Have good moments like that bahrain. Twenty was sixteen battle where they were rising really hard really fairly and they both taps love the battle afterwards and it was smiling laughing about it afterwards but to quickly deterred very sour. Not long after that. But that was also just as fine for every sort of khan and lovey-dovey moment and i don't want these are real men onto team. It's all those amendments that of championship battle that grand prix victories. A they easy going to be easy to come by with grown for and then it is a world championship and he's facial hair spray but he hasn't wanna well toddle yet and that's the one that he really really wants. And this is a different you know ferocity a to us and the has to be and it's great to watch is just mexico spectacle because at the end of the day is much sport. It's still entertainment as well. So you can. You can have calculated to i. Reckon yeah i think it's i think there's no problem with the overall rivalry. I like that sometimes. Red bullies petulant and mercedes sometimes comes across his arrogant. But that's that is sports. That's all of it. You don't get to the top level of the multimillion billion dollar motorsport industry and then just shake hands over on all the time. That's just not i think that's fine. As long as now on assaulting anyone outside the paddock at the end of the day or getting into punch on delivering school. It's good everything's fine. I think it's to wrap up the incident. I suppose yes. They both left the grand prix with no points but maximum step of course got a couple of points over lewis hamilton. The sprint rice. two points. so he's temperature believes that five points. It's hard not to putting aside the idea of whether deliberate i don't think it was It's hard not to say that red bull racing didn't fundamentally win this weekend in the championship battle rights expected to really call pain because this i mean we saw in qualifying mercedes was nearly half a second faster than red bull to leave with an extended championship lead staff in any way. That's a pretty big weeden for monday for them. Yeah they go to wi with. It was a fairly average. You know we we think about the sunday results The perez with the five-second penalty. And so he he was bumped off the podium as well Yeah that they. At least the you know in terms of both hamilton verstappen walking right with effectively points. Nice substantial point to the weekend oceanside. It's it's not the not the worst result however there is a hangover effect. Because obviously max now has three m three greed plice penalty for the knicks grown prey. So he's you know he's going to be to work on that for. I'm but in our three grid penalty arguably fee finishes on paul for the next race for example in stockton full at the end of the world for him in that regard. Either so it's Yeah it's it's not a dealbreaker entombs if he's world championship but i do do have to wonder though for the next girl and pray because obviously it's going to be repaid of silverton where he's going to get hassled about every he's gonna he's gonna get the sheets press conference because it obey the pace of every single. Tv journalists in deviant. They have to ask the question asked him sort of north south questions like books brezler command to ask but i gotta ask you questions about and that the growing prey so he's going to suck it often with a and again you have to think that in the psychological battle hamilton will be again their heads in that front because max's walked away essentially the villain of that grown pray. He'll be handed by the press in the late up to bring he'll be annoyed about that. Whereas louis desaix in halo often. Yeah we'll just we'll just carry out. There's less greasy ryan hamilton. The certainly more on for stepping in and red bull and yeah. I don't think it affects them. But it's just it's an. It's an annoying background noise that they probably don't need. And this is the main at the crunch point of the championship rounds to go. We've got russia and then a bit of a break in turkey and then a bit of a break still. I think depending on whether or not that race chain do and then we've got a real condensed drawn to the finish. This is now. We're well past the championship establishment face. We're way past that we'd and it's still so close. It is almost already met the qualification for down to the wire even if someone broke away now we've had so much already. It's such a long as as in any other year. This would have been down to the y. Already but the pressure is gonna mantovano precious ambiguous thing. You like to say about sport and that's sort of true but it's gonna can. This is way whether or not verstappen nate's championship. Winning experience on this way crashes like this will irritate more. Because you can't say well there's more than half a season to go. There wasn't silverton. Every rice is gonna count more. It's going to become only more interesting. How h drive response that it's going to be interesting and i do wonder now just to wrap up this weekend if one sprint qualifying trial left at the brazilian grand prairie normally anyway. Yes that's only small points but then as we've said estaban has extended he's championship laid this weekend solely because of spring qualified the title as only five points. I can't help it one way. The of course the points in any of the spring qualifying can because you've already had a couple but secondhand that's gonna influence all trial successful right. Imagine you've sprint. Qualifying judge to have decided the championship. Does that mean we keep it. Does that mean the pressure will be great to then get rid of it because it'll feel weird. Wow it's had a couple of isis full off the kalemba so it kind of even the the the the points lost. But i did think about this. How much bearing this has on on the championship. But it's the same for everybody so that and it's not just spring qualifying this you have a whole heap. There's rice in you think so but also not enough as well so the margin for era a lot smaller so if you think about it is what are we got the the rask grown one go russia turkey at sites. That's three mexico for brazil. Alive the table say rice and then saudi arabia every w we got seven or eight races so mental with me takes over five times before bed forty odd points at play then sprint rice as well and then you've got fosters latin as well said theoretically mec sets the fastest lap had finishes it in the points for the next seven or eight pray. Those that's another seven or eight points upi slave and in the context of this battle. That's that's nothing to sneeze at so every single point. Cancel no matter where it comes from. He's he's going to. He's going to be really on these.

"Water and then just put over you and that was a tremendous help to have something you can dip in the water to put over you and send certainly a good hat sunscreen. I have my sarong as well for my. Yeah one thing. It's pay money to see those pictures. Actually my sarong came from fiji so badly. How up you kind of have your clothes. You wear on the river during the day and then once you get into camp you wanna get out of those wet clothes and let them dry then. You typically have a change of clothes your evening wear so to sue you wanna get into dry in and evening enjoy camp. But you don't need a lotta stuff you know you can use the same clothes over and over every day but it's enjoyable to have keep your river closed separate from your camp close and then i would say some things not to bring. I was thinking we might need some snacks. We were provided snacks during the day. So we didn't need any snacks. I had brought some nuts in ziplock bags. Well one night while sleeping had not zipped my duffel in a few little desert. Mace found their way into my duffel by not. That were my ziplock bag. So no need to any of those snacks. Unless they're secured better than my were. Yeah they they provide all the food and snacks. You'll want to need. Yes as we start to ramp this up. You're standing in the prettiest spot in the grand canyon. Where or possibly you're sitting. Where are you. What are you looking at first robin you the most. I'm gonna use prettiest in it in a unique way the most inspirational spot for me. That was just completely moving. We head in that rock area with all the bishnu sheets to rafts. Were able to move into side little pocket. They called it the reading room and we were just talked in there with the motors off. it was completely silent. The walls are probably fifty to seventy feet high so just completely quiet and we sat for a while and then one of the guides read a story about one of the early explorers of the river and then another guide broke out his harmonica and played and it just was beautiful so that was probably my most the prettiest spot from an absolutely amazing amazing experience to be there randy. You've got more trips to think about here. We gave you more time. This is so so so difficult. But one of my favorite places is the wheat granaries. it's a classic spaw. You've most likely have seen pictures of this thing. You hike up from the river Five hundred feet or so and you're at the edge of this Rock side There's his old granaries and assist the classic view looking straight down the river. He see the light reflecting off the The entering colorado river look straight down through the gorge. So it's that view from the neck week granaries looking down river actually..

"They'll have a fully cooked meal which could be anything from lasagna. To any type of this they do some incredible cooking in dutch ovens from we had a trout. The last night was. I always i guess a very special night. We had shrimp cocktail and then steak. We had ice cream. I mean the food really is amazing and that was one of the most impressive things to me is. How a on these jay rigs daypack all the supplies and all the food. Our trip is only six days but it was packed for nine days. Because as we helicoptered out another group helicoptered in for the following three days to finish up the rest of the river so when we left lee's ferry everything that was needed was on that those two rafts with thirty seven people and that just impressed me so much. The guides are amazing. That's actually true of the spa boats too so on these eight seventeen eighteen day trips or never re supplied with food or anything impressive. Yeah does that mean the menu changes as you get further along on the trip here. That part of the trip is very much scheduled the way they packed their coolers and freezers they actually have it staged so that they'll use like the stuff a lot of stuff they need for the early part of the trip on the top sure and so they will use food and things that might have shorter time for eight kept earlier in the trip and later in a trip gonna have great food by the end of the trip but the lettuce might be starting to wilt a little bit interesting. What else do people need to know before. They book their trip for the grand canyon. One thing that i would like to point out is some of the options for not necessarily the type of trip but the length the trip in the section of the river both robert nigh have been talking about a trip were essentially eight went near the whole length of the river. There are other options for example. All river trips start at least ferry but some people will go as far as phantom ranch. Which is the main part of grand canyon where people hiked down the the bright angel trail phantom ranch so you can do a rafting trip and they referred to that as the upper part of the river or the first half of the river even though it's really not half it's about eighty miles downstream. So you can book a trip where you travel from these ferry to near phantom ranch but then you have to hike out. It's a ten mile five thousand foot. Climb in it's a significant part hike. But you can do the upper half the river where you're hike out where you can do a trip where you down at. The same point beat a rafting trip and then do the lower half of the river so they would call that exchange trip where they're exchanging passengers in the middle of the trip. Kinda like when robin referred to whitmer wash my one eighty eight where she helicoptered out. They had people coming in and joining a trip..

"Rob was mentioning hiking and how hot it wasn't everything. That's actually something. That river trips will adapt to for example a lot of my river trips. I've done have been in the spring or fall when the inner canyon temperatures are a little bit more moderate. and it's more conducive to hiking and longer hikes away from the river in the summer time when it's much hotter they tend not to use some hikes and Do a little bit less hiking and you'll spend more time playing in water and under waterfalls. So that's actually also a difference in that. How many river trips will adapt what they do during the day to the current temperatures and seasonable the year. And do you find that you have a favorite time of year to go and the grand canyon. I would go anytime now. It is seasonal right. It is seasonal and the fall. I think the fall for example my upcoming trip. It'll be late. September into early. October as a couple of reasons for that one is the temperatures are more conducive hiking. But also it's the non motor season in other so starting in. I believe it's early to mid september. They don't allow motorboats on the river. And so it's only boats on the river are are non motorboats. It's less traffic on. The river is a lovely time to go and usually the weather is pretty stable. I guess that brings up another thing is what is the the rafting season. The private river trips will go year. Round 'cause they will go whenever they can get a permit but the commercial rafting season usually starts in late april into the end of september. Early october there are no commercial trips on the river on the winter months. That was my understanding excellent. Let's lay out as you start from east to west and you're going down the canyon. How is it going to change over the course of your trip. Probably one of the most spectacular days for me was our third day in they called rapids day and what it was as we were entering the gorge. Which naive i was going in..

"People lived in this case it's difficult to get to but that of course made it very remote an isolated and of course a source of water right there but we're talking about petroglyphs from i assume the ancient pueblo or what we used to call the on assi yes exactly. In fact many of them lived seasonally in the canyon. Oh interesting yeah. I saw some you know other. The other belief is at that time. Which is i believe in the fourteen hundred fifteen early fifteen hundreds. They believe that the climate was different than and more amenable. Some would live there but many would migrate. Seasonally bend different times the season growing crops and bringing crops and some of the stops along the way you can find granaries where they used to store their crops and things like that and we had hiked up to an area where they lived and saw like the foundations of living areas and then also pieces of pottery and cooking utensils in. It's just all nicely just laid out and everyone just looks at it and just leaves it. There's so much history that you learn actually. Is you raft both the history. And then the geology. I found the guys are just fantastic with their knowledge. So there's so much learning that goes on in this to a club. You mentioned being one hundred seventeen degrees. I want to get back to that. Because i think a lot of people have been to the grand canyon. Hopefully most of our listeners have had that opportunity to be the grand canyon. it is an amazing place. Even if you can't rafted but the difference in temperature between where they were on the north or the south rim and the canyon floor. The river is pretty stunning. I have been on the grand canyon at the south rim. I think when it was snowing and they said it was eighty degrees at the river. And so if you're there in a warm day at the top you can imagine that it's the kind of day that robin saw at the bottom. Typically twenty to thirty degrees difference depending on the season because one thing that people don't realize is how high the rims are right in the south rim is around seven thousand feet and the north rim has eight thousand feet at the river level..

A lot of people think it's it's a music venue in it is but really the music. Venue kinda grew out of the radio show.

You still have to tip your hat tip that stetson We should tell them why they miss that. One broadcast it was after the assassination of martin luther king the city of nashville. I think most of tennessee probably was under curfew so they had to rerun a program and i think they did a live show the next day or later something during the day earlier that day before curfew i believe they tried to show so they still data show that they just missed the live broadcast that night but all the other ones dating back to nineteen twenty five. They made pretty neat. Yeah i actually went When i was a kid we went to. It was an amusement park called oprey land. Usa which is now. I think sort of a shopping center mall kind of thing But back then it was an amusement park like a country. Years pre dollywood. Oh you went to the opera land. Usa yeah oh wow okay. Yeah and so we also went to the grand ole opry house and i don't know if it was a saturday show and now they do shows on tuesdays fridays and saturdays but i don't remember much about it but i do remember being in that building in seeing the Sort of barn shaped motif sn age.

"He's in a positive way that we've recently put together a customer experience team that monitors all of our social media Outlets because we found that so many people are trying to reach Jeff Not The Grand Design through social media because of its convenience and they're on their phone anyways, and they're looking at Facebook anyways or Instagram. They want to be able to get feedback. So our group of customer experience individuals. They are actively taking a role in our customer Rally's in our social media and pretty much the social I would like I guess you could call it the social liaison office in our customers and our customer service, which so far has been a great success and I think customers are really caught on appreciated what we're do we use all those platforms if we did and we'd be nuts. Okay. Yeah. I'm glad that I heard you mention that the customer forms. That's actually when people ask me that they're shopping around for an RV and you know, what what should they do first customer forums or one of the things that I recommend that people do first month after they have decided like, you know, they they picked out the style they want anyway, I recommend people going to customer forums and hearing what customers are saying about the products that they purchase and what they feel about them. Ask those people would you buy again and and things like that? I think that's a great resource. I think do you if you talk about forums not only are they independent of you know manufacturer control, which is nice. It gives people an opportunity to speak freely give positive negative indecisive feedback on whatever the topic is. But yeah, it's it's definitely an asset for for RV owners to go on and say hey, here's what I like about it. Here's been my experience and often times you're going to get the true feedback positive negative or indifferent on exactly a lot of people's ownership experience. I think I think if you're an RV owner right now and you're not part of life for my I think she really, you know consider doing that so it's a great experience. Now you guys have I've seen Regional Grand Design rallies throughout the country. Do you have a big rally every year? And where is it off? Yeah back in the old days when we weren't fighting covid-19. Who knows when they'll be back but we're eager to get back out there and do that. But yeah, we do have Regional rallies. We've actually got a lot of great rallies birth. North America and and actually as of the plan of this past year will we will be active and not only the United States but also Canada doing some rallies so our plan is to get back moving on Thursday because our rallies have been a huge success. We've got a lot of great people that helped us put those on we call him wagonmasters and they do a great job and they they really help support The Grand Design Brandon, how may help support our family of customers? So I think that's probably going to be an area that you're going to see a lot of expansion in as we get back to the the normal life, I guess and something definitely want to keep your own on but yeah, we've got a ton of them across the country and Canada right now. Can I ask you what are you most excited about in the future of Grand Design whatever you're allowed to share. I guess I'm addicted to keep seeing the company grow. You know you look at where Grand Design was even two or three years ago and you look at where we're at today and what we've done and you get the chance to go off..
