Wouldn't you think of the word America. But what specific fix symbols. Come to mind the Statue of Liberty Baseball Burgers a world class albeit very expensive college degree. Those are all good guesses but for a a long time a sweeter treat has represented the best and worst of the United States Apple Pie. If you're from around here then it's a good bet that you've heard the oft-recited recited phrase as American as Apple Pie. But what's the origin of this patriotic slogan. First let's back up and look at how apple's landed on America's shores ores apple's had been cultivated around Europe and Asia for thousands of years but when European colonists arrived in the Americas they found only wild crab apples small Soured dry apples. That aren't good for eating unlike some other fruits. If you plant and appleseed there's no guarantee that the resulting tree will bear the same delicious fruit. You Ate Apple. Trees tend to revert to their wild format grafting on branches from developed trees helps and you also need pollinators honeybees to grow the fruit so although the original settlers of Jamestown brought apple seeds and seedlings with them from Europe planted them in their new homeland. The first apples grown in America were mostly used for CIDER rather than desert. Now let's Talk Pie. It was only with the availability of granulated sugar through slavery and trade. That dessert hurt pies including apple pies came into popularity in America despite the Apple Pies Common Association with American Pride Europeans and actually got in the whole piping. I think down centuries before a recipe for Dutch Apple Pie can be traced back to fifteen fourteen and the English were so enamored with apple pies in the late fifteen hundreds. They even came up with Pie. Themed soliloquies so who was responsible for impressing apples into the American mindset. That that would be one. John Chapman also done by the more famous. Moniker of Johnny appleseed. Contrary to popular belief appleseed was no mere American legend he he really did exist and what's more. He planted apple nurseries around the turn of the nineteenth century throughout Ohio and other Midwestern states and he sold them at a tidy profit off. It appleseed also gave away countless more seedlings to pioneers who set up apple orchards across the nation he became legendary because he mostly walked estimates. Say somewhere around ten thousand miles over the course of his life all barefoot and with nothing but a single knife for protection. He became a symbol of rugged individualism individualism and frontier expansion and in the years since the United States has developed a whole slew of truisms associated with apples including an apple. A day keeps the the doctor away and one bad apples oils. The bunch the phrase American as Apple Pie popped up in print as early as nineteen. Twenty eight was being used to describe I blue Henry Hoover the first lady of the Hoover Presidency and what a good homemaker she was but it wasn't until World War Two. The apple pies really became stamped into the American consciousness as a patriotic pastry by then good. Apple's had been common for a few generations and the dish was thought of as Homey and Dispel Jack due perhaps to a popular song titled. Ma I miss your Apple Pie. Published in nineteen forty one and apple pie being the most frequently served desert at American military posts during the war. It became a bit of a mean for American soldiers to tell reporters that they were fighting for mom and Apple Pie and boom boom. The Apple Pie became American given apple pies strong associations with America. It's perhaps not surprising that it's not really a homegrown. American can product but something baked overseas and brought to these shores but since immigrants are a key component of the United States there's perhaps no better symbol of America in this delicious Dessert Desert.

I'm Lauren Bogle bomb and today's episode is a classic from our erstwhile host Kristin Sager the topic what is sinister Fisia Asia. And how does it work brain stuff. It's Christian Sager. Have you ever heard a color or smell the sound. If so don't worry you are not alone instead. You're part of a group. I consider super powered you have sinister Asia or are you've done some crazy drugs and maybe that's different episode but when people with Sinister Asia experience input from one sense it results in the experience experience of another sense so if you're a sinister Like author Vladimir Nabokov. You would associate letters with colors graphene color sinister estate Asia. That's what it's called and there are different types of sinister Asia. Nabokov called his color. Hearing this graphene color stuff is the most common type but since Asia can occur between just about any combination of senses or cognitive pathways and not everyone will experience the same type of sinister Asia the same way so all these soft Sound always seems like fire engine red to one since teed it may be cobalt blue for others some people with this condition see music which sounds kind of beautiful when you think about it. There are less common types such as lexical goose dettori sinister statia people with this condition taste certain flavors dishes or entire meals based on a picture word or sound smells could have colors and shapes to the list goes on. There's mirror touch sinister. Asia ordinal linguistic personification and number form very person sees numbers as a distinct map. So this is all fascinating but how do people get it. Researchers are still working on that one but they believe condition tends to be somewhat inherited or genetic as about forty percent of sinister have a close relative with sinister Asia most sinister sinister recall having the condition for as long as they can remember it might sound like people have made pneumonic connections with sounds colors or so on but research search shows it is a genuine sensory phenomenon rather than a memory exercise for example if we drew the number five all over a piece of paper scattered with a few twos forming a triangle. Most people would have a hard time seeing it. They would have to look closely to search for the twos and and then slowly construct the shape but a graphene color sinister concede this triangle almost instantly researchers think that sinister Asia is a kind of cross wiring in the brain in graphene colors sinister seats. Seeing a number stimulates your graphing region and the Area of your visual cortex that responds to color. Stimuli one theory is that there are increased neural connections in the brain of sinister leads that that could have been the result of less neural pruning. That's what they call. It neural pruning while in Utero. Even Cooler is that there might be actual the an atomic differences in the brains of sinister like increased white and gray matter in their brains one. Bit of sad news for all the non-citizens ministy out there. Although one study did find that some exposure to color letters built up their association. The effect didn't last so people can't just just catch sinister Asia but hey it's not like all the sinister. Let's have a great time. It can be uncomfortable to see a number in the wrong color and one electrical Gustav Tori Sin. Estate said that if a certain name doesn't taste right to him he has a hard time liking the person it's attached to and it's time to talk about drugs. Don't act like you didn't know this was coming. Hallucinogens might be one way that sinister Asia can be manufactured. Several drugs can produce vivid sinister Asia in non sin estates which might be a key to understanding the condition one researcher there has posited that in non sinister needs information in a multi. Sensory area travels back easily to its single sense area but in sinister a bit mixed up along the way. Hallucinogens may temporarily alter the users neuro chemistry confusing does exist in connections. I mean let's face it going to a concert might be pretty amazing for people with visually Associated Sin Steve. Today's episode was written by Ben Bowen and produced by Tyler claim.

Today's tip is to become more intentional about your time thinking about what you would like life to look like at this time next year. I always love those best of the year lists that come out in the last few weeks of December and I love using this time time to reflect on the past twelve months. Twenty nineteen has brought all kinds of wonderful things to my life like this podcast. I hope that as you reflect the last twelve months you also have much to be grateful for. But as you're thinking of the past I find it's helpful to spend a little bit of time thinking about the future to no one is guaranteed tomorrow but most likely twelve months from now you will be reflecting on another another year come and gone so take a few moments today amid any new year's festivities to picture future you let's say future you quite happy with life. He or she is in a celebratory mood. And this is partly because future you has successfully dealt with whatever is weighing on current you right now think about how you might tell the story of your current problems with their happy resolutions maybe current. You is feeling overwhelmed with work but future you on New Year's Eve next year is is feeling far more in control. Why is that well? Maybe you hired a great new assistant or maybe you raised your rates and moved on from clients. Who Worth your time? Maybe you got a different job. I have no idea how you resolve this particular situation but if you picture the story you might tell you can start to see potential solutions that you can work on now you can also start to plan in what will become the years highlights nights maybe future. You is happy because he or she is more energetic than current you. Why is future you so energetic? Maybe it's thanks to those twice-weekly early morning workouts that you've done consistently as you picture your future self reaping the rewards of your choices. It you become more motivated to talk with your family members or tweak your work schedule to make those workouts a reality now in any case one way or another time will pass the new year starting now but eventually it will end and as all years have ended most likely you will be looking back on your life twelve months from now those twelve months will be filled with something but right now they are completely blank. What they are filled with is up to you? So what will fill this time. If you were to really feel like popping the champagne corks next new years. What would you have done in this time picture? This a happy future you and you can spend the next twelve months helping to make this a reality. In the meantime the Laura thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time.

But when he was a teenager he accompanied his father on a trip to New York City and state there even after his father returned. Learned to the Caribbean. Jack's plan was to get an American education to find work and to become involved in politics and he immediately said about reaching with those goals Jack enrolled in the New York evening high school and got his diploma in Nineteen Twenty Nine. He later took evening classes at New York University where he completed the three years of study toward a bachelor's degree in Business Administration Jack found work at a paper box factory and he managed to work his way from being a box walks cutter there to being the vice president of sales but as he witnessed more racism and discrimination jat turned toward a political career in nineteen eighteen thirty.

The tradition began in nineteen o seven when a ball made of iron and wood covered in one hundred light. Bulbs descended a flagpole all the latest version of the ball boasts two thousand six hundred eighty eight crystal triangles and thirty two thousand and two hundred and fifty six led modules. The New Year's ball drop. Has Its roots in naval history inspired by the time balls introduced in the early eighteen. Hundreds these devices were fixed towers and coastal towns and would drop a ball all at a precise moment of the day to alert nearby ships captains. When to precisely set their navigational tools called chronometers? The current New Year's tradition is a particularly American American affair and the Times Square ball drop has inspired numerous imitators around the country and even around the world so today which is New Year's Eve if you're listening on the day the episode comes out I wanted to share some of the weirdest most wonderful things that people drop to ring in the New Year for more than two decades a city in central Pennsylvania Selena has celebrated the tournament calendar by dropping a massive Baloney spiced to meet is popular in the region and Lebanon. Pennsylvania is home to several producers service plus. There's an annual Baloney festival every January for the first twenty years of the New Year's event a single two hundred pound Bologna. That's about ninety. Kilos would be lowered powered by an industrial crane right before had been night in two thousand sixteen though the tradition shifted from one massive Baloney to twenty individual blocks of Baloney weighing in at ten pounds owns or four and a half kilos. Each the reason. For the change the organizers the annual event donate them to charity after the drop and it took too long in the hours after midnight to slice this up one gigantic Baloney. Apparently for twenty twenty a disco ball will be attached to the Bologna. Let's go next to Saint George's Bermuda where revelers avelar. Don't just get to celebrate a few hours. Before most of the rest of the Western Hemisphere they get to watch a gigantic onion. Drop at the stroke of midnight as musicians artists performers in street food vendors. Live up kings. Square Saint George's founded in sixteen. Twelve was Bermudez first. English settlement and the island became major producer and exporter of onions. Glittering golden onion covered in light bulbs descends about the square which overlooks Hamilton Harbour and laser show and fireworks traditionally follow the event rent but back Pennsylvania in addition to the Baloney the drops in Lebanon less than two hours away. The city of Bethlehem celebrates or that enormous peop- drop that wraps up a two day celebration known as peeps best. This sugary and divisive marshmallow confection is generally produced in the shape of a bird and is most commonly found in the US around the Easter holiday. Just boring the Bethlehem based Candy Company responsible for peeps also makes my connects and hot tamales. The giant EH dropped on New Year's Eve weighs four hundred pounds. That's about one hundred and eighty kilos and finally let's head to Sunny Arizona and the city of show low. This locale gets its unique name stays as a frontier town without a name and the story goes the two rival cowboys and ranch. CODERS were playing an extended game of poker and the loser would vacate the city leaving the other with hundreds of acres of land the deciding hand in who would stay and who would go. According to city lore would belong to whichever cowboy oh boy could show low by holding the lowest value card possible and the winner turned over a two of clubs these days. Not only these cities Main Street tamed. Deuce of clubs but show low drops a colossal illuminated playing card every December thirty first. It's just a block away from where a statue commemorating. The card game once stood once stood because the original fiberglass statue accidentally burned down during a candlelit vigil in two thousand sixteen. It's being replaced by Lebron's one.

Hello and welcome to savor of iheartradio and stuff media and I'm Laurin vocal bomb and today we're talking about chestnuts. Yes tis the season for chestnuts. It is yeah. Yeah that Nat King Cole. Song was a was a favorite it on the holiday rotation in my house growing up my main association with it is it from the show supernatural which did at Christmas episode way back in their second season which their fifteenth season. Now you guys so Had that song and it's really dark because it's a scary show violence violence. Oh stuck with me. Oh let's see I can see I'm making her fees that no one will anyway. I love it. I watch it every Christmas. The actual food I do not have a lot of experience with no no I was actually. I think two years ago when I was in Japan Japan and it was October and I remember because there was a lot of fun Halloween stuff and I was in this huge huge sprawling market in Kyoto. There are all kinds of foods. Foods and snacks and roasted chestnuts were everywhere everywhere so I tried one and I was like okay. Oh it was good. Yeah it's actually one of the very very very few foods that I'm not fond of meticularly like They taste to like cloying enrich to me like. There's like a sweetness sweetness and a richness. It's like too much rain is like do not want Yeah I don't know either I my parents. We literally roasted Over an open fire when I was at and I was like what is this crap Like five year old man was not having And Yeah as as an adult. I've tried some snacks Especially yeah I think Japanese snacks that have some in it. And I'm like no no my although we did have a district Fabio holy over at The reporter if Beer bar five points anyone familiar with Atlanta that were filled with a chestnut mixture. And those were fine. Yeah sounds good. I mean it was also also with like shaved. Brussels sprouts with cranberries. And then I want to try them again. I'm curious if I I would. I'd like to try them in the. US and whatever people are doing around Christmas time. I want to know what that's about. Yeah I'm willing. I'm willing to try I don't like it when I don't like food like everything I want to eat but okay let's get to your question Yeah Jeff Nuts. So what are they well. Chestnuts are the name of both a few species of temperate. Deciduous trees trees and they're nuts in the genus Costanza The four major species are the European which is C.. Sativa the Chinese which is see more Sima the Japanese which is C. Grenada and the American which is C.. DANTATA and yeah. These trees can vary in height from like thirty to one hundred feet which is around nine. Nine thirty meters with these oblong leaves that come to a sharp point and have serried at edges and they can live for hundreds of years and this nut is our first true. Not What are the balloon. God we should do so So soy really officially officially looked it up to try to get my head around. This definition of true nut is that it's it's like a fruit and seed Combo unit becomes a hard generally inedible. Shell that does not open on. Its own okay. No no never Okay so chestnuts. Grow like this The trees put off these small clusters of flowers in the late spring or early summer and the female flowers will usually be clustered together in groups of three surrounded by a sort of capsule of these tiny brax which are which are stiff little flowerbeds yeah And when the flowers are fertilized those three flowers will start growing into three individual nuts. each Each each creamy white with a chocolate Brown husk and shaped sort of like cloves of garlic. Meanwhile that spiny capsule grows with them forming this spiky Greenham Sheath sheet or or Burr and when they're mature the burst open and dropped to the ground or sometimes just drop the nuts have to say when I saw a picture of this. I laughed aloud because I was like. Why did we name? It didn't Totta and I saw the picture and it made sense. I I laughed. I laughed it off. Okay I see. Yeah 'cause they're they're very spike's they're they're very toothy looking. They are yeah a little bit little bit monstrous but so Once once you get this nut okay to eat it you're GONNA you're GonNa WanNa Cook it somehow but In order to do that you're going to cut a slit or an X.. In the husk and then generally boil or roast them until the flesh tender and Husky soft enough to be peeled off and the the flesh will be this creamy yellow something like the texture of cooked potato the flavor is rich and sweet and earthy and yeah. They're they're used in both savory and sweet dishes they can be ground into a flour for soups or desserts. Mashed Mashed and fried like donuts made into periods for pastry fillings. Or attitude any number of dishes for a boost of that sweet richness than some people apparently enjoy folk uh-huh In those trees themselves are hardwood. The that would has been used for construction and ornamentation. Pretty much everywhere they grow around the world and and that would contain a lot of Tannin which once extracted is key in the processing leather tanning. Yeah the what has also been used to make paper very very much useful things to do. What about the nutrition yes where food? Show weird impassioned. Wise chestnuts have a macro nutrient profile. More like a grain than most other culinary nuts like by caloric intake. They're like eighty percent carbohydrate but they still have double the protein of most grains and Owais less fat than most nuts. So yeah I'm weird little in between category that they feel they've got an excellent smattering of vitamins and minerals comparable to some fresh fruits or vegetables. So they're a little bit carb heavy but especially paired with a bit more protein And other types of plant stuff they will totally feel you up and and keep going and give your body all that stuff that it needs to you know body. Hey right yeah all right good on you we we do have some numbers for you. The US makes up less than one percent of global production most of the fresh chestnut sold in the US are imported from China Korea and Italy the yearly the value of chestnuts imported into the US estimated to be around twenty million dollars. The justice is sometimes used in the place of potatoes. Yeah and dishes around the world and Africa Europe Europe Asia. The French Call high-quality Chestnuts Model and candy them. I'm interested in that these days. Most of American chestnut consumption consumption does happen around the holidays either roasted over an open fire or as an addition to stuffing slash dressing and spotting chestnut trees in the wild make national news. So good reasons that we will get you will so rare. Our old chestnut trees that they are named like when people find them. They can nate. Oh Wow yes yes like this is Bob. Hope there's a bob out there the American just foundation labels them as technically extinct but yeah that was not always the case at all.

Traffic to ocean plastic nick new schools to new energy flight delays to food safety smart loves problems. Ibm Let's put smart to work luke visit IBM DOT com slash smart to learn more Thank you sponsor yes thank you so chestnuts are old. Oh Oh yeah. Oh they're they're not new. Yeah as in up there with the first foods eaten by humans insert that old chestnut to hear an old old chestnut. Yes they were one of the first domesticated crops see sativa probably originated in Europe and probably specifically in Greece and end or possibly China. You know one of those five thousand year old Chinese poetry mentions chestnuts and remains. Chestnuts have been found from one thousand years prior prior to that in areas of the Mediterranean where green growing prove difficult. Chestnuts were a fantastic option. Yeah the ancient Roman spread them throughout their empire and also also there's evidence from Japan dating back to a little bit later on about one thousand CE. Yeah some records indicate that street vendors were selling roasted chestnuts by the sixteenth century. You see in Rome jumping ahead and then seed and Totta. The American variety of the chestnut tree was known to native Americans long before European immigrants arrive. They boiled the leaves down for medicinal purposes and when the Europeans did arrive they discovered just so many chestnut groves everywhere. Yes at one time. The entire eastern coast of the United States was rife with chestnut trees several accounts exist people living in regions with plentiful chestnut trees. He's and they tell. The people who wrote chestnuts helping them get through tough times a lot of these nets were open anybody to forage and plenty of them. One Quote Boot Mountain woman said a grove of chestnuts is a better provider than an easier to have around two. I like this mountain woman. I what do your other accounts claimed that. In some forest during chestnut season inches of chestnuts accumulated people made use of them and putting ground them up into deflowered for cakes and breads are just plain old rusted they were fed to pigs and cows and believed to impart superior taste to meet. The Wood was preferred by woodworkers for crafts and log. Cabins and many main square was shaded by chestnut trees. Over one thousand places in Appalachia had chestnut in the name in some parts of of that region chestnuts were used as currency children called chestnuts shoe money because at the start of the school year children got their nets together to buy shoes. Yeah some historians sometimes informally dubbed Roasted Chestnuts as America's first fast food Imagine that they were also a popular popular tree with horticulturists Thomas Jefferson experimented with graphs of American and European chestnuts at Monticello in seventeen. Seventy three just for example but Yeah other folks were bringing in other varieties Throughout the eighteen hundreds and this led to the creation propagation of a lot of varietals up through the early early nineteen hundreds with the advent of steamboats and completion of railroads in the eighteen sixties Kentucky was able to sell some of their plentiful chestnuts. They were available in general stores stores through door to door sales people at its height in nineteen fourteen. Virginia's cash crop supply of chestnuts was over two million pounds hoof. And this brings us to a huge huge events in America's chestnut history blue light. The light display Japanese chestnut trees carrying fungus spread. This fungus spread ended eventually nearly eradicated the American chestnut tree population which at the time numbered around four billion. The infection might have set in earlier. You're in the one thousand nine hundred but it wasn't reported on until nineteen four Yeah it was first described by employees at the Bronx Zoo so it's sometimes reported to have come from there and then in nineteen thousand four but it's more likely that a number of trees were brought into various areas of the northeast with the infection writes writes this fungus attached to animal fur and bird feathers and a live just not to one written anecdote from the time advise that you had to get to the degree that just naturally before or the Turkeys. Do you wanted to get your hands. On some chestnut point being they helped spread it far and ride this fungus. Yeah and the the way the way that this blight light works is that the fungus creates a lot of salic acid which which eats away at the trees enough to let the fungus in to to feed and grow in the trees tissue which which causes these these cankers that kill everything around them and prevent any part of the tree above the infection line from you know getting nutrients from the roots and effectively leaving you with a stump New shoots will grow from those stumps forming sort of like sad shrub. That's also vulnerable able to the fungus But yet it prevents the tree from really growing or producing nuts by the nineteen. Th State Commissions were formed around this issue these commissions this push farmers to chop down trees plagued by blight a paper out of wholesale Pennsylvania implored woodmen burn that tree spare not a single bow. The Boy Scouts Scouts got involved in several states. How searching for blighted trees in the hopes of creating a blight free zone? But all of these initiatives proved unsuccessful in the Nineteen Twenty S. The bismarck Daily Tribune reported efforts to stop the spread of this bark. Disease have been given up four hundred million dollars. That was the value. The paper estimated the trees are worth worth ten years and years earlier. Yeah Hoof. The Daily Tribune wrote that. This amounted to the loss of conspicuous and beautiful feature of the landscape in this country and went on to lament lament schoolboys of the future. Who read the poem of the village? Blacksmith will ask what is a chestnut tree and the poem reference is one by Longfellow also also of note. This was especially devastating because it coincided with the Great Depression a North Carolina Lieberman wrote in the Nineteen Thirties. Certainly nothing could be more unsightly than the gaunt and naked. They could chunks of these dead trees standing skeletons in every vista which the I. Turns the. US Department of Agriculture began trying to develop a resistant chestnut hybrid the nineteen thirties but despite decades of trying they were unable to find a solution. Shut down in the one thousand nine hundred. Wow Yeah oh eighties. Eighty five percent of the chestnut trees located in the great smoky. Mountains had died off by nineteen forty just a few groves and California and the Pacific northwest survived with the rival in the nineteen fifties. Most of our chestnut tribulation was gone botanist. Call this one of the greatest botanical disasters in our history. Who F- someone who grew up Kentucky? During that time wrote I thought the whole world was going to die well. This was a hugely important product for food for shelter for income and it was just this gone. Well Yeah but what. Let's turn it around. What about that connection to the holidays adding adding we'll learn light asked me to do ripen in the Thanksgiving Christmas season then they bloom late spring early summer ripen fall to early winter and rights and papers would depict train cars full of them enrolling into big cities just in time for the holiday season? The Christmas Song chestnuts roasting over an open fire debuted in the twentieth century with that Classic Line Nat King Cole. Cole was the first to make it. Famous in nineteen forty six is actually written by Mel Torme. There you go there you go. Chestnuts played a role in other Christian traditions. Before this on the feast east of Saint Martin's Day. They were given to the poor representation of sustenance and in Tuscany they were eaten for Saint Simon's Day. A wedding. Tradition on Corsica calls for chestnuts is prepared twenty two different ways at wedding. I would love to hear more about this off early. Christians sought that chestnuts. Were symbolic of chastity okay. uh-huh yeah the American Chestnut Foundation was founded in nineteen eighty three with the mission of restoring the American chestnut population to its former number. There were six six thousand members by Nineteen eighty-nine and that year they started a breeding program. Corn Geneticist Charles Burnham reading about the shutdown of the US government hybrid program. We mentioned earlier realized they'd made a major misstep in ignoring back crossing so scientists in the US haven't given up on the chestnut tree. They're experimenting with breeding American and resistant to blight Chinese chestnut trees and then crossing the resulting specimen with pure American chestnut trees. Some scientists fantas are working on sequencing the DNA of American chestnut trees and the plight yen one of the ideas. That's come out of that. Research is that we could genetically engineer American Chestnut has not trees that essentially de weaponize this fungus by by creating an enzyme that breaks down that acid that the fungus produces and so oh yeah And they successfully created trees like this. The gene responsible for creating the enzyme comes from bread wheat. Researchers have been working on this since nineteen ninety But it's only being seriously considered for distribution like in the wild this year And it is to be fair really tangling topic attempting into reforest with a genetically modified organism. But but the researchers say that the modified trees don't harm local bees or helpful. Fungi or tadpole so looks looks good. Maybe and yeah they can't just introduce Those blight resistant genes from the Chinese chestnuts into you. The American chestnuts because it's like a whole suite of genes. It's not like a couple of genes that you could just be like boop boop. It's a whole tangled web thing MHM It is. Another tactic being steadied involved infecting trees with a virus that could potentially kill the place. Yeah I know I feel like a good backfire backfire okay. Five hundred blight resistant. American chestnut trees were planted in two thousand eight and two thousand nine. Scientists are also interested in the chestnut trees ability to sequester carbon dioxide side and reclaim coal. Land Yeah I read a lot of land that was previously used for strip mining Chestnut trees would be a particularly good use of the nutrients trance that are still in that soil and restoring that land to something usable. I had no idea I had no idea. This blew my mind that they these trees used to be everywhere. Yeah Eastern Eastern certainly like they. We're never very populous outside of the east rate. But who've just gone just gone and I've always kind of wondered about it because the line in that song wrong. I would think they're everywhere. Yeah why why's that even in the song what and now it makes more sense Sad it is. I got bombed out about the guy when he was like children won't won't now. Yeah yeah and I mean and they sound like really glorious Laureus Tree they do and the and I was like one of the small rabbit holes that I pulled myself out of was about Woodworking some of the woodwork work in houses from the turn of the Twentieth Century And how common chestnut hardwood floors and and other fixtures were you're right and how like that's a really good sign that houses from before a certain point because after that point rate Yep Yep this has been a happy holiday episode. You're welcome everyone fascinating stuff though. Oh Gosh Yeah and I'm sure there's a lot more I I didn't know this was such a huge event American history. I'm sure there's a lot more when it comes to Japan and China other places than the. Yeah they're also grown in Korea and it sounds like there's a lot of really interesting information about like Eastern Europe But yeah we kind of focused in on this because we're like oh wait disaster and there was so much resources resources on it so many papers written about it. So you know you didn't before same for me. Lessons always learning. Yeah yeah that's about what we have to save with chestnut. We do have a little bit more for you but I got one more quick break for away from her sponsor Problems it's human nature to hate problems but why is that after all problems inspire inspire us to mend things.

Oh Yes oh I love this coffee setup on track right gosh that's fancier than I have in my house. I know what happened my house aspersions. Yes Jen route while listening to your episode on S. cargo. Today I was instantly brought back to my two thousand seven trip to Morocco where snails are common dish. My first encounter with them was in the souks in Fez where they are sold. Live like in this crawling mass in one massive market amidst the hundreds of stalls and the a monkey and snake handlers. There's a row of half a dozen little stands all selling snails boiled in broth. Snails are sold in little bowls with a little bit of broth and you sit at stools stools around the kiosk very hot dog. Stand kind of VIBE. You eat snails by pulling the media. Bits out with a toothpick. There's quite a bit of meat in there. I found the taste quite similar to mussels clams with perhaps a more earthy unless ocean flavor. Of course the broth is a big contributor to the taste but the simple preparation really allows you to taste the genuine flavor of the sales. I've never had proper French as cargo but we used to sell it at these semi fancy grocery store. I worked at the university and it always looked a nauseating amount of butter in there. I would highly at least just trying the boiled snails ever get the chance. Morocco has other amazing dishes to Jean passed. Dea think that's how you pronounce it which is a meat pie? She says dusted rested with a sugar and cinnamon and sometimes made with pigeon mint tea and of course the endless souks filled with every type of food imaginable including camel meat worthy of another podcast trip. Perhaps yes yes yes. That's right now okay new trip. She also has pictures and they were great so many snails. Thanks to both of those listeners. For writing to us.

We're living in right now so much suffering so much rancour so much hate and there's all that social media it gives you a serious case of foam. Oh as Teddy Roosevelt once. That comparison is the thief of joy. Sorry if I seem impatient. I'm not a fan of pleasantries With the WEATHERMAN. What's in the news? Study show the average person has about twelve twelve thousand to sixty thousand thoughts per day and that eighty percent of those thoughts are negative and ninety five percent of the thoughts are repetitive. That adds up to a lot of ruminating about a lot of bad stuff. So next question. How do you stay positive in today's world? In my opinion the happy guy or the girl is like way more three dimensional than just like happy like it's a fight. It's a war. There's a lot of things you can do to try and stay positive. You're about to meet a very happy guy with some uplifting and Saipem advice and you can even dance to it about novel multi-platinum pop singer and Songwriter Andy. grammer work reads like a playlist positively. His platinum singles include hits. Like keep your head up which loved. Thank you good to be alive and the ridiculously asleep. Catchy Song that became an anthem for monogamy. Honey I'm good. He's also got a popular positive. podcast called the good parts and he also has a new album out called naive. And so- Andy. I'm so happy to see you because I could use a little positive in my life I love you. Thank you so much for having me. Your the whole story is so interesting but before we kind of dive into your life you sometimes have to defend your positive attitude. Don't you I mean you have to Make sure people understand that. It's cool to be happy. I feel like I smile quite a bit and I have just in the world. That kind of came in always like looking for the good. My late husband used to say I was hardwired for happiness sounds like McNamara. This error is named exactly right every once in a while. How what you will get back from the world if you are? This type of person is that you don't know what you're talking about like can't you see how crappy the world is like. Why are you smiling so much? You must not know. Oh so you kind of get into this corner of like. Oh you're like cute. You know you're so sweet and he comes by like smile. If you're happy must be stupid. Must be stupid because you don't know what's is going on and so what do you say to people who have that attitude. It's almost like a rebellious way of being like. Call me whatever you want. This is how I live. This is how I am and I'm making it for people likely and there's much more to me than a smile on my face because I guess a lot of people think you have to be dark and Moody to be interesting totally yes and you WanNa prove otherwise is yeah. Hopefully the. There's there's people that can see that that's not always the case and everybody has all these sides to them right like. I have dark and Moody in my life but usually that dark and Moody is trying to get to somewhere. That is worthwhile where I can grow. Where the world is worth it where I want to show up and be a part of this thing rather than just be a dismal about it? Let's talk about sort of how you came into the world with a smile on your face. Yeah I was born in Los Angeles and then my dad is a children's singer so I got some of my good vibes from him and my mom. They both wrote these children's songs together so they were following him around so they moved Nashville and they moved to New York. And that's where I grew up up here in upstate. New on our north of Europe. Let's go monitoring very and so you are surrounded by music all your life when you're very little kid and we have a clip of your dad's singing Barnyard Boogie. He loves to inform by the kind of an everyday GonNa do yard Buggy and then my dad got act. So where do you do you think that was this. Just a children's record or was he took it really seriously. He was incredible. He was my dad's. That's grammy nominated children's singer so this is his job. You travel all around the country and around the world singing the kids and your mom to was museum as well. Yeah so this came to you naturally. Yeah and genetically predisposed to the older that I get the more I realize. How lucky if you WANNA be a songwriter to grow up in a house with two songwriters writing songs all the time is pretty lucky? Data and you started writing songs yourself when you were fifteen years old yeah started just taking stabs at it was never really pushed on me. You remember the first song you ever wrote. Yeah I think it was. Something called the doorstep or step to a girl about like you GonNa come pass the doorstep. I'll hang outside and flirt with you a little bit. You're a busking and I've never even heard of that term. I guess it's more of a a wet. Is that a west coast trial. No I haven't really heard of either so you were a street performer. Nauert so you were doing. What a Lotta people do here in central park or in the subway waiting Dean area you were performing? So what kind of things were you doing. And what did that experience teach you a lot. I understand quite a bit because at its very fundamental level the idea yeah of not waiting for anyone and just going and doing it is really important in any career especially in arts. Do not wait for permission. It's like freedom of speech you literally can't stop me. I'm allowed to just start doing what I do. So that was really important for me so I did that for four years and I'm starting to learn what it is that I had to offer and what was working and what was not working working. Say what kind of songs would you sing sing covers. I was seeing my own originals and no one would stop going all right. Well I gotta write some more You know cover Maroon five and I'd cover One Republican I try like Michael Jackson and all these different things to see like what's working here trying to find myself on my sound. I imagine that you encountered all different kinds. The people and a real slice of humanity you really do. And what's being on tours thing when spock is Santa Monica's tons of tourists come. It's going to Santa Monica where the Third Street promenade and yeah. It was like this awesome waiting into the water of what it means to be an artist. And how honestly the whole ecosystem them of what an artist is. which is you? Put yourself out there. Some people like it. Most people don't and if you can hang with long periods of solitude waiting while averages ignoring were you then there are these moments where something catches on and now there's three people five people now there's a hundred people and you're the man for about twenty minutes. Let's and crazy. Everybody wants her Autograph Street. Yeah they walk by your CD who signs for me. Holy Crap this is awesome and then they all leave and you're back to like okay. I got to figure out how to build. Oh this back up again. Could not get less pat day job gossip ordinary ordinary straight. So in the beginning when you're bad and you play C.. You would be giving me attention not me giving you a service right. You're you're giving to me because I'm bad to actually make the switch to where like I'm doing something that is beautiful touching your heart or making think like actually giving to you that actually switches it to we're like I'm giving you the service and for the first time with my music started to do that as a street performer. And actually those four years. Where where it started to switch so by the time I left the street it was like like cool off a little bit figured out how to write a song that gives rather than just ask? I don't all men you wrote your first song really based on your experiences variances as a street performer of called. Keep your head up which is such a great fun upbeat catchy song but you're feeling kind of rejected when you wrote it. Yeah it was a a day of no-one putting anything in my case which is usually get there early set up and wait for spots. You're like there for like almost eight ten hours so full day of the world being like no. We're not interest loud and clear. Know enough of you so I packed up all my stuff and then I literally did this. I looked up up at the sky and I said I'm never leaving so your move like I'll be back for the for the rest of ever like until I go. I'm here I will be here and I'm not gonNA stop showing up so you might as well just like make something happen for me and then I went home and wrote us on you. wrote a song became a huge hit. put it out in the world but I mean what was that like here. You were busking and suddenly you become this well-known singer songwriter. So what was that like. Yeah you hear on the radio and then you're going around the country in the world and people start. You'll see things on youtube recovering. It and then you go to play a show and they're all singing it it was It was pretty spectacular. Tell me the process for writing a song. Because I've played the piano and I've always wanted to be a songwriter. You know I just think it would be so fun and I've tried a little bit. Of course we tried to alright. A song called if I only knew my husband died of cancer and I thought how different people would act. I actually just went to a funeral. This morning of a dear friend Ryan who was killed in car accident. And would you do anything differently. If you only knew that your time was limited. Would you be more generous and loving and caring green and which you not waste a moment be mad at someone or getting in silly fights and I just think the idea of really taking advantage of every minute to be happy and loving is a wonderful thought so take that idea run with it. You can say what songwriting is to me. The at least is you have that thought which is great thought. It's like if I only knew as lyric. Yeah it's like a great lyric is a great idea and then for anyone who is listening to songwriter. Peter is what's going to happen. You're going to write the song and it's GonNa be so sincere in you. It's like a perfect pure little thing and then in the process of taking it out of you and actually I putting it out into the world. You will realize that fell apart and crumbled into like a terrible thing and he'd be like crap. It was so good in me. I know it. I really like connecting to it. I was getting so oh encouraged and as you take it out it falls apart so the only way you can actually do it is to write it again and you read it again and then you write it again and then you read it it again and being a good. Songwriter is someone who gets better. And better at the process of actually putting it into the world in the way that actually feels inside you because that is an unbelievable art but I feel like I need someone to help me because maybe I'm just a lyricist not necessarily as songwriters where Basel should be wet and sue me. I think we got it. Okay all all right well. We'll talk gasoline when we come back. We're going to talk about how to stay positive in this increasingly depressing world for living in. Because I think the people are feeling anxious and unhappy and depressed. And we'RE GONNA get your prescription around everything no problem I got you when we come back. Maybe the world the problems. It's human nature to hate problems. But why is that after all problems inspire us to mend things. Bend things make things better. That's why so many people work with IBM on everything from city. Traffic to ocean plastic new schools to new energy flight delays to food safety smart loves problems. Ibm Let's put smart to work visit. IBM DOT COM slash smart mark to learn more. Hey this just in. It's officially fall. Means a lot of things to a lot of different people changing colors time to break out the pumpkins break out the football football most importantly break out my friends at truly hard seltzer truly has only one hundred calories but as five percent ab in only one gram of sugar per container. It's that can't miss. Drink of the seasons of pickup in. Try Truly Hard Seltzer today. Truly Drake what what you truly want. Music can really change commute so dramatically again. I think that is a songwriter. You're just trying to find what's true about being here for some reason. I don't know why it's harder to make the happy side of things. Sound cool but if you catch it the world really needs and we all freak out of the way known sunset bills Mosit- high incoming goals breadcrumbs province riots. We talked about being surrounded by music as a kid and by children's singers having parents parents who sing songs from the time you're hopping out of the womb. Must kind of make you a very happy person. But what else do you think shaped you and made you positive because I think we all have different thresholds of happiness. Sure different happiness levels. I think one of the quickest ways to become happy that the only failsafe that that I know is to be of service to other people stay. which sounds weird ridiculous? It's kind of like when you are laying on your couch and you're lethargic what's the best thing to make you feel better. He's gopher run. And then you know you feel better. So in a world right now where everybody's got their phone in front of their face and the cameras voicing back at them all day long. We're like very self right now. I think that makes you very unhappy. And the more that you can go outward and do something for other people be of service to somebody else figure out how what your daily life is is being of service. That will undeniably make you happier. Every time I agree with you because I was thinking about that as I was sitting in this funeral service this morning and I you know when you you go to funerals you hear such incredible things about people you wonder. Gosh why didn't I know this person better. or how can I have. What David Brooks Calls Eulogy Values? How can I be the kind of person that people would say those things about true? You know when they're no longer with us and I I started thinking about when your external facing instead of so focused on yourself and your own problems and your own complaints and you know things. Things that are usually exaggerated and instead and of look around. And how can you help other people and make them feel better. Yeah instead of being consumed by your own is is the quickest way to be happier. Mellon ask you this. You were at a funeral this. I have a podcast about what I think are the most interesting questions the good parts of our story. What do you think happens when we die is one of the things I'd like to ask? I think nothing nothing lights out. Game over yeah. What I love about this question is there's no right answers all solve really fun? I was raised a Presbyterian me and my mom was Jewish but I do sort of I think believe more in I agree more probably with the Jewish faith that your spirit lives on in the hearts parts and model of everybody else if everyone you can shape other people who come after you buy your presence in their lives. That's what I think. Oh I wish I believed in heaven and that I was going to be on a cloud eating Philadelphia cream cheese. I just don't think I do. How about you so Alabama high one of the things that I got from the faith was. There's these writings about how we we believe that it's like the womb to this place is a good analogy so so when you're in the womb. You're growing arms and legs that you don't necessarily know why you need them. It's actually making you more uncomfortable in there and then when it's time you move into this new place where you get to use these these things that you were growing. Oh my God this is awesome and it's much vaster crazier cooler. You could ever imagine much bigger so the idea. Is that this place here. Living in life in the world world. You're supposed to grow spiritually and then once you leave this place that then you use all that wherever you are next. So where is that where it's impossible to describe I. I don't think that it's a a cloud with cream cheese either. Where do you think it is? Do you think it's sort of some kind of particles brain literally. He is incapable of understanding it. But I do think that it is worth growing. It's like we're here to grow for that place so then when you're talking about your friend's funeral I am sad ed but I'm also I do think that this this guy is in a really great place I really genuinely do. And it had many wild experiences with my mom was passed on that just like further that you can't prove that to anybody but in my own personal beliefs. I think that he is in a wonderful place. Tell me about your mom. You mentioned her she. She died of breast cancer. When you're in your twenty s and I'm curious how that affected you and how you were able to maintain this sort of upbeat? Positive attitude are the song. My new album called. Wish you pain which you can make sense of this. which is you only grow from things? Usually that are really really difficult. And if I was going to be someone who runs around the world and sing songs that are trying to uplift people. That'd be pretty obnoxious. If I didn't understand pain I hope your doubts come like monster garage dreams. I hope you feel the lowly homelessness. There's no one else believes I'll question whether you they had chance up until that point in my life life was pretty easy for me. I like was good enough. Exports was like homecoming king wasn't like trying like why isn't everybody. Abby awesome. This is great and then at twenty five I lost my mom and my whole world got completely rocked and I was for about a year and a half. I went from being the Super Gregarious. Guy To just like at the dinner table or the frontier will just completely Louis quiet silent taking in like. Oh this is what so. Many people are feeling when it comes to like sadness and pain difficulty. I really needed that to not be annoying and not understand. I have any compassion towards how hard it can actually be so losing. Her was like very grounding. And I think song keep your head up is saying be happy amidst how difficult this is. Most happy songs are still grounded in pain. The Matt Cells Stray. But a wish you pay was your mom sick for a long time. It happened really fast. They caught it late. She passed pretty soon after we found out again. What's crazy is my relation with? Death is different but she behi- Shoes Behi- too. I actually got to sit with her and we had a whole conversation about like almost like a train. The station for me when I was like. Oh my God I'm so sad I don't WanNa lose you but are you a little excited about where you're going and we had this awesome superintendents conversation that was like man. Maybe I don't know what is it who you know so that is either to anyone listening. That's either like a ridiculous silly conversation between two people that are trying to make themselves those feel better totally fair possible or a really really sweet spiritual conversation with me mother and his son. I love these conversations. These are my favorite. I hope that was the ladder best Honestly despite the fact that I'm Scotia cynical but I know that you do something you keep your mom's spirit alive with something called Cathy Grams. That's what I did as a way to to work through my grief. I don't do it as much anymore. But right when she passed away I would at any of my shows be like if you're going through something if you are having struggles or troubles as a way to get through this. I will write you a Kathy. Graham which is like a short teeny little song offended over youtube to you it was kind of wild l.. Because you know you just having a normal day and then you get this email. That says I'm going into back surgery for the fourth time and I'm really stressed out about. I don't have any arms or legs and I'm I'm going into back surgery. You said you'd write a song like Oh my God so that I get on my guitar really fast. We got your back get back back right. It's like send it off off. Probably did about ten or twenty of them in that period of my life. You're really upset but then by doing things for others. It is amazing how quickly that makes makes you feel different. You know then getting these incredible beautiful emails back from the family of the girl saying like. Oh my Gosh you've been planning this over and over and over before she goes into surgery. There's a random stranger that now like kind of family with my musical career is basically trying to do that as much as I can on a worldwide scale meanwhile you went on dancing dancing with the stars in honor of your mom loved to dance. She did Oh my God I watch that show sometimes and I think would you do it I you know they've asked me to do it a couple of times. I first of all I I don't think I could because it's very physically taggers bright and I also think would forget everything. 'cause I would panic and I would draw blank. Once it was my time to dance. It would just be freaked out. I just don't think I could do it but I admire people do. Did you have fun. Doing it. Fun is in front of the word. Now who's your partner will fund. But what you're talking about her. Name's Allison Holker. She was awesome. It was the most stressed that I think I've had in my whole career. Like like why would I invite was doing it. They wanted to ask me go sing the national anthem at the game. One of the world's series which is supposed to be stressful thing like fine. That's great way out of here. Let me stop doing the cha-cha I would love to go do that. But it was really really good and it was really sweet to do for her. She loved to watch and she was like a big fan of dance. GotTa get to every night. Go get quiet before I went out and did something ridiculous. Like dance for her very far in the process. You're made like eight shows. Wow that's okay good but no mirror ball for you mere ball. I did not deserve the mirror ball so k.. Justice was served next.

And she's my favorite one of the songs on this. This new record comes with a pretty wacky story. I'm share it. Share it so I get this call. My Wife Goes I. I got a phone call with this guy named Daniel Brinkley. And if you've heard him mm-hmm struck by lightning was dead for twenty eight minutes and then wrote a book about his near death experience so like what he said happened when he passed away. Okay I don't know exactly what to do that information in but sure my wife gets me a phone call. She says you should call them like all right. I'll call. I'm like fifty percent. That's ridiculous fifty percent like my mom. If he says he can talk to people like maybe whatever ever so I called the guy. And I'm like Kinda skeptically on the phone and he goes like all right. Your Mom's name's Kathy Right. I'm like yeah still kind of like not ever. What are we doing here? What are radio and yeah and he goes she? She's saying very specifically that she wants you to write a song to your daughter about everything that she would say to your daughter because she can't be there to say it now it's like honestly man that's just a great idea. I don't even know I don't know what's going on here but I've written like way we're songs on way less good ideas so I will definitely do that so I write. The song is called. She'd say and my mom is a huge Paul Simon Fan. She loved the graceland record where he went to South Africa. Ladysmith Ladysmith Black Mambazo and it's like dimes on the soles of shoes you can call me out. These are all amazing songs. And this is one of them's so I write the song I get in the car the next next day after I rinse song on the radio says Ladysmith Black Mambazo is going to be in Los Angeles and at that point now like this is so weird now. I'm like laments like internally weirded out by this phone call the fact that one of my favorite groups is going to be here so I chased him down and I'm like I think I just gotTa follow this all the way to the weird end that it is and they agreed and we have this insane song called ingred to sing. It was so is this wild song called she'd say Featuring Ladysmith Black Mambazo who ooh and when you hear like the African singers it gets so insane and then it's me singing to my daughter all the principles and truths that my mom would have saying to her. You never got to meet your grandma every night a guy to kiss on. Pick me up that you will never listen to the sweet sweet sound of. I've had so many weird experiences like that that I just live in like a weird magical lane and I don't know what to do about it. I don't necessarily. I don't say it's true or not true. I just like this is my life did. Did you tell the singers the group that you'd have this over huge photo of my mother and we put it in the studio and they came in and I told them all this insane Saint Story and a quickly started writing in Zulu. The words what she'd say and I love my mother and I miss my mother so it's like they're singing Buddha Woah. It's like wild. It's one of the most incredible experiences so my daughter is going to have this song that whatever may be. My mom wanted her to here which which is really sweet. She Dodge old. What other weird experiences have you had if you just had to name one more? Because I'm fascinated by this. I had this experience actually picked up on the news Up in Boston where Playing a show in Boston and I'm sitting at early Brunch by myself for your show and he's six like elderly ladies come in and sit down in the corner and they were making me. Think of my mom and I'm like Oh man I should pick up their lunch but then sometimes you have to worry about doing that because then you look like you're trying to be a big shot or whatever I never mind keep keep eating my breakfast and then I had this thing being inside is like you should probably go pick up lunch. I was like no. I'm having this internal conversation with myself now like now if you're crazy 'cause it's like so intensely saying go pay for their lunch like Fine so I get up. I go over to them and I go. Hello Ladies. You all seem very very sweet. I don't WanNa be weird at all. I just like I lost my mom. You're making me think of you all and it would mean the world's me if I could just pick up your lunch. This lady starts crying and she stands up and she goes. I lost my son. WHO's your age and like we? We announced hugging this lady. So this happens to me and I don't know what to do with it and we took this photo and I wrote it out and it became a viral thing up in Boston and then the news came and took photos of together. Like the sweet little moment that occurred. I just think there's way more going on here than we all think there is. I don't try to say I know what it is but there is like a sweet interplay of stuff occurring that. I'm not necessarily scared of but it's like it's insane. Do you think you're operating on a different spiritual register because of your faith and because of the high and what is it exactly. So the Baha'i faith is a world religion very simply based on the unity of religions. The idea is is that there's just one God and that God has come down in succession throughout all the time so Judaism Christianity Islam Buddhism. All these are like different accents of God and so that's great because there's so much strife and conflict. The act comes from religion. It was a wonderful way to grow up because everywhere that you'd meet someone new you'd like same team right but it's obviously very important to you and to your life. Yeah I mean so there's like a lot of principles that if you're raised this way can't help but affect how you see world so this idea. That pain or struggle is something that is for you to grow from. That is a huge deal because when bad things happen to you it's not just like Oh me again. Dan Life Sucks. It's like what am I supposed to be learning from this. How am I going to grow from this or am I going to take from this experience? You did an incredible video about a woman who was dying of Breast Cancer with her little boy that was with Justin Bell. Doni show right He asked this show called my last days Jacksonville. Doni he's on Jane the Virgin. He's Raphael from Jane. The Virgin. He's also maybe one of my best friends in the world so he started doing this show called my last days where when someone's terminally ill a friend of theirs will nominate them. To be on the show injustice injustice crew goes in and then the interview them about. What's important to them? What are you thinking before? This thing happens as really powerful. I'm sure it's incredibly powerful. Is it sad is uplifting and you've probably watched a lot of these. Is there a common theme that people talk about or feel or regret in their last days. Ace really centers. What's important while you're here? What are we doing year? These are my favorite questions to ask and this show gets into you way. More about how you treat people loved ones being around your family again back to being of service. How are you actually being of service to other people and so this show? It was A lady named L. E. who is passing away and her son was a big fan of mind so I wrote him a song to sing to her when he missed her when she was just brutal saliva. That's an alley passed away. She passed away but again all context. And how you feel about that right so if you believe that they are going somewhere else and that one of the ways you can keep in touch with them is to do good deeds in their name. There can be sweet this around it that I really I think there is. I know that you're a really good beat boxer. I mean in the land of beat boxers. I am not but I know how to be boxed. It'd be all right go ahead. You're basically just mitigating drums set. So gimme the kick is going to be like a PF sure then the high end and like what like give me a little more bottom like pf fff. That's fine then the Hi Hats T. ask Yep and then like a K.. Turbine doing great. Now caver this like give maybe like a year a full on beef sounding absolutely fantastic. Yes now you're off and running fast so I knew Katie Eh. We're having a good time thing about positively and I don't know how to I mean I can't stick around promises. It's not depressing town. Did I love that. Do you ever feel like you just wanted. Turn your whole image on its head and be like a jerk and dark and Moody and like steel ice cream cone. Everybody has evil thoughts but not in general down like let kids keep their ice cream cuts misconception about me they'd like I'm happy and I'm like no look to go deep. This is my favorite. Someone passed away and I was like. Oh Man I actually have a overly like I love to talk about death partly because my mom passed away so fascinating to me spend a lot of time thinking about so it was wonderful it was really nice to meet you and be talked to you. You already have had cast and we're gonNA write the song if I only knew if I only know that's good that's what you come out of this before we go.

And we mentioned the Solomonic Dynasty and its last emperor highly selassie and previous hosts hosts. Sarah Lena did an episode on him including his connection to the rastafarian movement in February of two thousand eleven. So we're going to share that episode today. We hope you enjoy joy. Welcome to stuff. You missed in history class. A production of iheartradio's how stuff works. Hello and welcome to the PODCAST. I'm Sarah Dowdy and I'm dobalina chocolate boarding and it seems like we're gradually stumbling upon kind of sub theme for the PODCAST here. It seems like situations keep cropping up in history in which someone's remains are discovered uncovered identified and buried elsewhere. Yeah like a variation of our main exclamation theme almost exactly for example. Take a Perron. I think the before our time Stephan you missed in history class did a podcast on Perron and how it took more than twenty years to bury her and it was for political reasons and her body traveled kind of all over the place Italy Spain before finding its final resting place in Buenos Aires and that was a little different because I think they kind of knew her body was all time. Yeah yeah they were always afraid who is gonNA get stolen though. I think that was always a concern right. And then of course there was our recent podcast about Henry the fourth. We talked about him to kick off our Bourbon series that has been ongoing and his head was recently identified and will be reinterred this year with full state honours so kind of along the same lines ends and with today's episode. We have similar sort of situation. Though with a very different set of circumstances the subject of this episode is highly Selassie he was the last emperor of Ethiopia sometimes known to his subjects as the king of kings and the lion of Judah and Time magazine wants even made him their man of the year ear members of the Rastafarian movements which is how a lot of people know him they even think of him as their Messiah yet. He didn't receive a proper burial when he died in. Nineteen seventy five yeah. It's always surprising the people who don't get the proper burial So his remains were exhumed from a makeshift tomb in nineteen ninety-two But his his official funeral didn't take place until the year two thousand so a pretty long gap between those two dates and even then when the a funeral finally did happen it was pretty controversial. It was tough to pull off. There was a lot of debate With the current government of Ethiopia of how it should happen. Yeah so why did it take nearly thirty years to bury a world renowned leader. That's just part of what we're GONNA look today as well as the conflict between Ethiopia Ethiopian. Italy that put highly selassie on the map in the first place on the international stage out there for everyone to know his name and see. Yeah but You know of course before we talk about. What put him on the map? We're going to talk about how he got to be Emperor of Ethiopia in the first place because he was not heir to the throne it was not his destiny At least so it seemed he was born too far maccagnan on July twenty third eighteen ninety two and he was the son of a prince. Ross Mekonnen Conan Ross means prints And his father was also a noted general in the chief advisor to the emperor who is Emperor Menelik the second In power at the time that far I was born And he was related to the emperor but not that closely he was emperors grandnephew view and there were kids and grandkids who are in line to take the empress place. It didn't seem like this. Relatively distant kin would eventually rise the thrown. But little did they know too far. I was pretty intelligent. And he impressed the Emperor Menelik very early on and so the emperor started appointing too far to these provincial governorships at the young age of fourteen and he became governor first of Saddam. Oh and then the Harare province so he's governing and his policies at the time were considered pretty progressive compared to what was out there he wanted to decrease the power of the local nobility by pumping up the power of the central central government so for example one of the things that he did was developed a salaried civil service. Yeah we have our minds so much bourbons to this kind of reminded us of richelieu and Louis the fourteenth centralizing the government With a with King with the emperor But meanwhile while the young too far is working on all this the emperor dies in nineteen thirteen and his grandson lease Yasu takes the throne But this man is not very popular and not popular right from the start part of it was he had converted to Islam and the majority of Ethiopians at this time. We're Christians Christian so his subjects weren't particularly happy with that point too far away on the other hand who was a devout Orthodox Christian he comes to represent resent the Christian resistance at this time so the country's younger generation they support him for this and also because they're becoming enamored by his progressive tendencies unsee. So with both of these things working for him he's able to depose leash asu in one thousand nine hundred sixteen and that makes Malik the second daughters Audie to empress. But there's a problem with that because at the time it was considered unseemly for a woman to rule in her own right so Ross is too far I is named regent and heir apparent to the throne. Yeah and it's interesting too because You normally think of a region and a ruler working at least somewhat in tandem especially if they're two adults but this was not the case. The ruler is what is a pretty conservative empress compared to rust fireeye but he seemed to be the one who was really pulling the strings he was the one moving his more progressive agenda forward and it is pretty it is pretty progressive in nineteen twenty-three he gets Ethiopia admitted into the League of nations the relatively new League of nations that point in in nineteen twenty four. He becomes the first Ethiopian ruler to ever go abroad. He visits Rome and Paris and London and by Nineteen Twenty the eight. He's sort of elevated this region position a little bit and he takes the title King of Ethiopia. A little to have a king and an empress here In it sort of shows you where the true power all in his power is elevated even more in one thousand nine hundred thirty Wednesday to dis making Rastafari Emperor. It's then that he takes the name highly selassie which means might of the Trinity. So now he's truly empower these the emperor he is the emperor. Emperor something else is happening at the same time in a land. Far Away in Jamaica about the last thing you could expect to happen yet. Ah Now of course a lot of snow the story but at the time it would have been maybe kind of surprising to some people's ears where things so when highly selassie became emperor ver- it fulfilled a prophecy or a prediction that black leader and founder of the back to Africa Movement. Marcus Garvey had made years before what he had said at that. Time was look to Africa for the crowning of a black king. He shall be the redeemer so when this comes true so to speak back in highly Selassie russifying Azam is born obvious now or that name Rastafari so a couple of primary Rastafarian rastafarian beliefs. are that the only true. God is the late Ethiopian. Emperor Highly Selassie and that Ethiopia's the True Zion which was kind of a paradise on earth and one of the key doctrines is that they will someday return to Africa from which their ancestors were taken a slave. So those of you who maybe are fans of Bob. Marley have heard some of this before. Bob marlies very famous for being defiant. So yeah but there's a there's a weird element to all of this and that's that highly philosophy himself food being revered as the Messiah Hours The only true God by Rastafarians doesn't really go along with it himself because he's a devout without Christian so he never really accepts his status as a messiah as a deliverer that these people sort of thrust upon him. I think that's Sacha Gotcha. What a strange? What a strange deal to have going on there? Yeah and I think when he was alive people asked him about it. You know did you. Did you know about this. Did you know that you're considered a messiah. And he was just kind of like yeah. I've heard that but I don't have a man. He just said He. I'm just just a man. It's no any also at the time. At least he had some major problems to deal with that without thinking about how he was considered a Messiah by Yep in this episode of stuff you missed in history class is brought to you by.

Your kids are at school. You just need the Adt go APP which has a handy SOS button this episode was brought to you by Adt Pretty much as soon as he became emperor he had some issues primarily the rising tensions tensions with Italy. Here's just a little bit of background on the situation. Between Italy in Ethiopia. Italy which call an is most of the Red Sea coast in the nineteenth century three had tried to invade Ethiopia before mental. Ix Army had defeated the Italians back in eighteen ninety six the battle of Ottawa and this was considered a big victory for Ethiopians opium's and for Africa. At the time I think many sources have said that this was the first time in African army had actually met and defeated a European army and conventional battle. So Oh big deal. Yeah definitely a big deal if we fast forward though to highly selassie rain We have Benito Mussolini and power. He has by this point become dictator of Italy in eighteen twenty two and initially. It seems like he's not that interested in Africa in Nineteen Twenty eight. He even signed into this Treaty of Friendship with Ethiopia which at the time was the last African region that was free from some sort of European control? So it seems like Italy was backing off. Maybe the opium Italy would be cool with each other. That was not the case though. It wasn't long before Mussalini started changing his opinion about the country in his intentions in that may have happened for a few different reasons. Yeah for one thing. It's possible that He wanted to avenge the eighteen. Ninety six defeat some people suggest that just conjecture at this point but also Mussalini Eh as we know it was a fascist and part of the whole fascist doctrine as the state should try to expand its sphere of power and influence so that was one thing another thing thing was he kind of just wanted to stick it to the rest of Europe. At that point he thought Italy had gotten a raw deal at the end of World War. One Great Britain and France had both increase creased colonial holdings and Italy didn't really get. Its share of the spoils from his point of view. Yes so he was he was looking to make some gains In the trouble officially officially started in December nineteen thirty four and that's when a Royal Ethiopian force drove out this Italian encampment that was stationed at Wal which was way sis on the Ethiopian territory It seemed maybe from the Ethiopian perspective. Like the Italians. Were a little too close. Maybe they shouldn't have been there They were certainly a threatening presence but the Italians really used it as an excuse to go after Ethiopia the opium like look. They're not they're not treating this treaty in good faith. They're not following it. This is not a treaty of friendship if they're driving away from this OAC's and so they start to gather up their forces in east Africa or the East African colonies to eventually mount an attack on audio right so highly selassie sees this coming and he's pretty freaked out about it. He appeals to the League of nations at this point but but they really don't take any serious steps to stop the Italians from waging an attack. They issue kind of slaps on the hands threats and promises at one point they restrict trade with Italy but this doesn't really work either because countries involved especially Britain and France won't really commit to it and there's a reason for that there is mostly because members of the league particularly Great Britain and France. As I mentioned don't want to upset Mussalini too much. They he wanted to keep up an alliance against with Italy against Nazi Germany. So they didn't even really consider taking military action to defend Ethiopia the time they don't want to alienate Italy And their own European concern seemed to trump those of Ethiopia so on October third nineteen thirty. Five Italian troops start making their way to Ethiopia into Ethiopia and the Ethiopian army. Face them but they were just not prepared for modern European European warfare. At this point The Italians used airpower. And this this kind of sounds like it's right out of World War One combined with world war or to almost but the Italians basically crop dusted the Ethiopian troops with mustard gas and The GOP suffered three times as many casualties. Casualties is the Italians. A lot of the world though considers the stand made by highly philosophy and Paean really brave and noble though it's wet and makes highly Selassie Time Magazine's man of the year in nineteen thirty. Five people are impressed that They're they're mounting a fight against something so overpowering cowering. Yeah I think they almost saw it as like him. Taking a stand against the whole Nazi fascist power out there By May of Nineteen thirty six though the Italians made their way into the Ethiopian capital and they proclaimed Ethiopia part of the Italian Empire so highly selassie was forced into exile. Yeah and that June he goes back to the League and this time. He's a little more ominous he says quote it is us today. It will be you tomorrow. which is extremely prophetic coming in? Nineteen thirty six on the eve of world. War Two So so of course. In exile he has to take refuge. Somewhere outside of Ethiopia so he goes to England for about five years but it's interesting Mussolini's his own ambition to Fulfill that Fascist doctrine and acquire more territory is eventually his undoing. Eighty opium at least right in nineteen forty. He sends this enormous army to invade neighboring Somaliland. which was a British territory at the time and the British though they had fewer you were troops actually answered with a pretty well organized and well played counter-offensive? I think the Italians lost something like two hundred ninety thousand soldiers through either either being killed captured or wounded and this managed to drive the Italians out of east Africa altogether including Ethiopia. Yes so with Britain triumphant Up Highly Selassie got to return home and he was restored to the throne and proceeded to govern for forty years and he was welcomed welcome home by Winston Churchill himself. He sent a welcome home cable in which he said. Quote Your Majesty. It was the first of the lawful sovereigns to be driven within from his throne in country by the fascist Nazi criminals. And you're the first to return in triumph So that would make a really nice end for got a nice positive note. Yeah the a fairytale podcast But unfortunately it's it's GonNa keep going for better or worth. I guess there are more twists and turns to the story definitely so as the LA Z. As emperor does a lot of good things in his time him as ruler of Ethiopia he implemented some social economic and educational reforms for example Established sanitation programs provincial schools. National Sean Universities and even encourage some students to study abroad. Continue their studies. There hinted. That's partly his undoing. Yes it is He also played a significant role in the later years. In establishing the Organization of African Unity he established a constitutional government as well but the constitution and this is part of the problem onto is that it gave him most of the power. Yeah it's kind of a an outward constitutional government So you know. We've got some reforms in Mare. Some good things happening yeah. Something's to give him credit for but some people didn't like the way he was running things. And part of that was that the regional rulers or at least a lot of them felt threatened by his centralization of government he felt like or they felt like philosophy was taking power away from them and giving it to the lawmakers in Ethiopia's capital And a lot of Ethiopians who lived in developing areas. You know lived outside out of the cities Thought that too many privileges were going to the nobility which to make matters worse. A lot of these Landlords landlords these the the nobility the people who owned much of Ethiopia and were largely absent also happened to be related to the emperor so so nobody likes to see that. No not at all this episode of Steph. You missed in history classes brought to you by. WW formerly formerly weightwatchers. I have got some exciting news from them.

Head on over to. WW DOT COM that's WW DOT COM to join ww today with a limited time offer to add to this. There were some people thought the strides that the government did make were just too slow and unevenly evenly distributed students in particular especially those students. We mentioned who studied abroad. They complain that Ethiopia social political and economic developments. WERE WAY A to slow. They had studied marks and had all kinds of ideas of their own about land reform any quality but they were the only ones workers teacher soldiers they all wanted Ethiopia to catch up to modern times too. So it's ironic. We see sort of from the beginning to of our podcast to now. He seems to have come. I'm full circle. I he was thought of as the progressive leader modernizing the country and now he's the exact opposite. Yeah everyone advanced beyond him. It seemed tip to some people. I guess what happens when you rule for forty years or more So there were a few revolts and rebellions. Of course if you have these unhappy people but the most serious of these revolts occurred in nineteen sixty up. The emperor was the way visiting Brazil and his imperial cereal bodyguard staged a coup. A lot of university. Students supported it and they even managed to seize the Imperial Palace. Fortunately for highly early Selassie the army and the air force remained loyal to him and they squashed the rebellion pretty quickly But he knew that that things weren't stable bowl that his position was no longer staple to know even before the tells American Committee in Nineteen Sixty in this is a quote from him. The tide which sweeping Africa today cannot be stayed. No power on earth is great enough to halt or reverse the trend it's march as relentless and as inexorable as the passage of time so so he knows he's at risk and Ethiopia's at risk in as the nineteen sixties were on. This resentment really just continued to grow grow in there were a few issues added to that one was Aricha which even though it was legally an independent country it was absorbed by Ethiopia nineteen nineteen sixty two and for Ethiopia. This seemed like a pretty good deal because it gave them access to the sea which everybody wants their country to have access is to the theater and yourself better yeah But a lot of Richard's opposed it from the start and they formed the militant Arabian Liberation Nations front which the acronym for that is Elf To to protest this being absorbed into a country that they they didn't want to be part of right and there was something else that happened. That kind of added to highly celosias unpopularity. At that time age early added to it. There was a a famine caused by drought. which wasn't that unusual in Ethiopia? But the famine that occurred between nineteen seventy two and nineteen seventy four killed several hundred thousand Ethiopians and many felt that highly philosophy. Just didn't really do enough to help people. He they suggested. Also that the government had tried to cover the whole situation up yeah and though there were protests and the situation became really desperate starving people in a tensely a government cover up is going to make the the populace really angry and on September Twelfth Nineteen seventy four. The emperor was deposed. Finally successfully deposed in a revolution that led by a Marxist. Colonel named Mingas Stu Highly Mario and some accounts say that highly saucy was driven from from the Imperial Palace in the back of a Volkswagen with people in the streets. Jeering at him so really undignified exit for this Emperor of forty years. Yeah in eleven months later highly. Selassie was dead at the age of eighty three at the time report said that he died of natural causes but many actually suspect that he was murdered. Word in one thousand nine hundred six valets testified in court that when they found his body there was a strong smell of ether in the room. which suggested to them that he had been suffocated or perhaps perhaps strangled? Yeah and Minke Studio does give the emperor burial. So it's it's not as though highly slash. These body is destroyed or lost immediately But he said to have interred the body vertically head down next to his office latrine and then covered it with two feet of concrete to quote it deter a ghost who has reason to be restless and this is pretty unrelated. But I couldn't help but think of Dante's inferno this is the punishment for simony Germany which I guess if you think about it long enough with Messiah and emperor staff thrown in you. Could you'd work out some sort of connection there but Clearly a very undignified burial. No it wasn't but he did get a more dignified burial later on. His body was exhumed in nineteen ninety. Two you after the fall of Mengistu's government and at that time he wasn't buried right away his body his remains. I should say there wasn't a body at that. Point has remains were put into a small coffin that said do not open they put a sign that said do not open because they weren't quite sure what was gonNA happen really eared isn't it. I mean strange In there a few attempts to bury him you know get this. Do not open box in the ground somewhere but things just kept on getting in the way their arguments. It's about how the funeral should be run. You know whether it should be this state funeral for a former emperor or some sort of Hush Hush private family affair here and I think once when they tried to hold it elections got in the way so things kind of kept putting it off but it finally happened in November of two thousand and it was attended by one of his daughters and many many grandkids. Bob Marley's widow is even there are few Rastafarians there although it's interesting to note that most Farias don't believe that highly selassie is dead. Oh yeah how. `Bout that but Bob Marley's widowed. If she was a funeral I would assume maybe she came to pay her respects in general. Yeah but in addition to them I think there are somewhere around ten thousand to fifteen thousand the people as the total turnout so not nearly as large as you might think it would be decent. I guess but not a tiny family funeral either right and there was this great Two Thousand One story in the Canadian magazine Saturday night and it follows one of highly selassie grandsons Beta Maccagnan. who was living in Canada? The the time through all the events of the funeral. And he kind of recounts his time growing up with the emperor and I just wanted to mention it because I thought it was a really cool story and I and it really. I think shed a lot of light on who highly selassie was I mean we've been recounting through episode. What he did but what? What kind of man was what kind of man was he? So just a end off the podcast. Since it's been kind of a sort of depressing end in decline. We wanted to just say a few things about who the sky was. Yes yes he was ORCA Hollick. That's probably not too surprising He was friendly with President Tito of Yugoslavia who would actually convince him to take vacation. So that's pretty bad. If you have like a fellow president having to tell you to to kick off at the end of the day. Yeah but he did do it. He would go on vacation and take all his grandsons and daughters with him are the ones that were around at the time and So he had a little fun now and again I guess he also was said had to have a Gravitas that made even close members of his family fall silent so imposing presence He was also very concerned about decorum he didn't. I want you to interrupt his morning exercises for example because he thought that no one should see the emperor doing something so undignified so his grandson and this article relates late like running in in the morning to visit him and he said sometimes it'd be great and you'd run in there and everything would be cool but if you're interrupted him during exercises you would definitely get in trouble for that just imagining winning the barbells dropping or hollering But he he did like his grandchildren. I mean that has probably already come across with these family only visits and stuff. He spent a lot of time with the kids and his grandson said quote. You could ask them about the most serious aspect of politics when you were seven. He would answer you as if you were his equal and he'd question you and challenge you see you could see the other side so I guess he does seem to have an interest interest in youth and education. That's pretty consistent throughout his reign and That goes along with treating a kid like somebody who can converses in verses and equal with you and a really caring side too. I think I was telling Sarah earlier about the story. And how he mentions. The emperor himself would poor the grandkids milk in the evenings so they would all kind of gather and he would give them their evening milk himself and the milk ceremony right but the grandson mentioned mentioned that most people had left by the time. The revolt came around. So you know he he thought he would leave too but then when he came down to get the milk one tonight there were only two of them and highly Salafi sets left two grandkids left right and highly selassie said. Is it just youtube tonight. And he said the the grandson in the story Beta he. He realized at that point that he had to stay because there wasn't anyone else so very inching very loyal grandson and so oh just let's just to kind of give you I guess showed there are two sides to the story. Some people still disagree with his policies during his reign but there may have. I've been another side to him too. Yeah so you can have the family man. The popular ruler the unpopular ruler via long. Going on yeah a lot going on a very complex man. Mandalay really interesting went to research.

I'm not even religious guy but he's Jesus Isa's just playing at Lsu that was. I was at a Buddy's house report on Saturday and I got there early. It was just me and him watching the game having a couple of beers and it was like. What are we watching right now seven touchdowns in the first half texts with a lot of people in the league? Just talk about if he's a one hit wonder what what does that. One Song like Stairway to Heaven Hotel California like a great song ever let it be by the Beatles have talked about being a one hit. Wonder if you're a college player you know just meaning you have a great season. You Win this championship if they could finish it off against Clemson. which as you you see the other quarterback for them? It's pretty damn good two Trevor Lawrence. WHO's basically the modern day paid manning? Joe Boroughs Legend with our guy. Eyo some stories. Just that I I saw around the league things interest me and then middlekauff mailbag at John. MIDDLEKAUFF is my instagram. Handles my twitter handle but on instagram. DMZ are wide. Open you slide up in in those and we answer questions right here. But I'm going to start with the coaching carousel in as a recording. This I guess the big news was pretty kitchen. Sunday night. Pat Shurmur Monday morning. The Washington redskins have already fired their coach as a recording. This Jason Garrett is has not been fired yet and and my missing anybody. Giants Carolina is another but they fired Ron Rivera. They're pretty good mood. You know once they fired. Ron Very looks like the the assistant coach is really going on Carolina. Basically look like a collegiate team down the stretch. Gods what what a pitiful effort. But I've got a couple of things. I want to get off my chest with the coaching carousel. Before we get into some of the situations one. Sometimes you see on twitter. Everybody feel sympathetic in. Listen working in the League now. Granted I will. I haven't been around many sloppy coaches and they only head coach I worked for is one of the best coaches Oceana League assistance. Sean McDermott in the playoffs. Doug Peterson the playoffs. Matt Nagy was in the playoffs this year. Everyone's like Matt Magsi. He's emmys worshippers eight with a quarterback quarterback that couldn't complete pass us. He's going to be fine so I was around a lot of guys. That deserve shots did earn shots and are widely considered high level. But I've been following the League really closely and just working in the bay area. Seem from Jim Tom. Zula chip Kelly to actually Jack. Del Rio wasn't that bad relative. You've to the raiders have had but there are a lot of coaches like Freddie Kitchens feel sympathy guy just lost his job Freddie Kitchens. There is not another other job in America that I think Freddie Kitchens could make a hundred grand. He signed the contract. I'm guessing a four year contract in Cleveland. The obviously only worked one of those but in the NFL gets contract guaranteed so if he was making four million dollars that would be twelve million dollars he signed. I know a lot of successful so people just in life like you're successful financially if you make two hundred and fifty grant making four million dollars a year for a job that he had zero business Attaining Pat Shurmur we knew he was a terrible head coach. Maybe a good offense coordinator. I think it was more of a one year wonder in Minnesota. But he he clearly could motivate high school team let alone. NFL team again. A guy who became a multimillionaire for the second time around and now he's in the coordinator Sir Cycle where if you're coordinator in the NFL you make seven figures a year. You're not an ad will employ so when you get fired. They have to pay you to go away. I don't feel much sympathy. the-for guys that had no business having those positions to get fired. I feel a little sympathy Veronica Vera Ronald. NFL coach. He got fired and it clearly rattled them a little bit. Ah Yeah feel some sympathy there. But I don't feel sorry for Freddie Kitchens whose family became set for life because of job he didn't have. I'm sure people listening in corporate situations you work for these middle managers depending on your companies. Were Hell they might be making half a million dollars which is a ton of money and you go. How could this this Bozo get this job and you don't when that guy gets relieved of his duties because eventually they all get exposed just in football when you're the head coach you get exposed immediately if you have? No business is just doing it because it's a public job. It's clear your team has a basically a quarterly statement every Sunday and guys like Freddie Kitchens Chins and Jim Thome soula get sniffed out by week. Three you can't hide it so I feel no sympathy in that in in that realm and the other thing is failures. Good thing so for all these guys. I've been fired a couple times both times. The best things that ever happened to me in my life and only once in Philly when I have another year I just I had to figure it out in radio when I got fired. They had to pay me to go away and I trust me. I wasn't making a million dollars and it was a powerful feeling and I learned from it. I got better like adversity. Should help you in life. You should go back in the mirror. Look in the mirror revaluate. I wish some things and be better. Look how awesome. Andy Reed's Benson's he went to Kansas City Ron Rivera. I don't quite understand why he wants to go to Washington which it seems from the outside is whereas headed. Maybe something changes. But I don't know why he want to do that. But I'd say this I've seen Ron Rivera resume somme. I think he'll be pretty successful. And I think in the short period of time to learn from it he's GonNa come back and kick ass and take names but the NFL. It just has so so many guys in the league. I don't think fans quite fathom how much money these guys make I mean I think we understand with head coach Freddie Kitchens or whatever but even these coordinators and a Lotta coordinators in the NFL for every good coordinator and now actually lots decent amount of coordinators or head coaches but in the past and differently in college a what once you get in that coordinator cycle you start making seven figures seven figures think of how many people in your life that you know that make seven and figures. Are there really like the best guys. Making seven figures. Now there are a ton of good coaches division to that if they got their chance in the NFL they work their way. Yep would run circles around guys that have jobs and I think the hard part about. NFL why you see this turnover. One and coaching at such a rapid rate is the league's never generated more money. So buying these guys out of contracts I. I was my gym where I live in Walnut creek in the bay area. I really liked the gym. It's a really nice. Jim and I spent my only activities. Go there everyday. Just spend a Lotta time. There's also like a hotel slash. It has a bar it has launched. You can work there. It's like it's a little starbucks but it's big can do a lot but they're raising the rates and they've raised the raise the last couple of years now two hundred dollars a month and I started thinking like i. Am I going to be two hundred dollars for Jim gets I live in the suburbs. I don't live in New York City of San Francisco. That's insane but it's worth it for me to pay even two hundred dollars. I'm not really cheap in the sense but I do have to draw the line somewhere. It's just stupid. It's getting to the point like give. It gets like three hundred dollars. I I don't know I like the place I'm at believe hell to fifty. I might be out but it's still two hundred dollars to me what it was two hundred dollars five five years ago I would not do it now. Doesn't mean that much just like buying Freddie kitchens out of eight million dollars means nothing to Jimmy Hassle absolutely absolutely nothing relative to what the two hundred dollar gym membership to me. This eight million dollars telling Freddie Kitchens to pack your Shit and get out of your means absolutely nothing. The explosion of money from the meteorites deals allows these owners declared. We have no clue what they're looking for. The majority of these owners have absolutely. We no clue John Mara who you know from the outside buttoned-up shirt tucked in Amara owes the New York giants. You go you know what if you just ask a casual guy not like intense New York giants fan but just the guy on the outside that would go the guys that run the giants. Those are super successful high level guys. The last two coaches they've higher Mac Avenue and Shurmur lasted a combined. Four years they have. They have pretty much raised their hands that they wrote Coughlin one for whatever twelve years they have no freaking clue what they're doing absolutely none not because the hard part about a coach you can look at his his yards like coordinator where he ranks. You can call people that have worked for him or ask players former players that have played for them but it's really really hard to quantify what a coach brings the table on a day in day out basis because when you acquire a business. Let's say you can look at the spreadsheet she can get an idea of the revenue streams the expenses. How you can fix things where he can cost cut when you acquire a human being? It's why the draft sword it's why so many draft picks hit or. Excuse me miss and you know guys that we think are no brainers often miss because you can't quantify people people it's impossible it's hard. I'm not I'm not acting like hiring coaches easy. If you said John Middlekauff tomorrow you own. NFL T- There's probably I do this for living. I fall coach and I know monthly. I could text a million people. I could get a bunch of people on the phone with I. I'd like go after Kyle Shanahan if I owned an NFL team. I would just try to buy them out. I don't know what I'd do. Just try to acquire him or McVeigh. I would get a guy with already job. I wouldn't go the coordinator route so I. I'll be the first to acknowledge that this is a difficult process but I think we also have to acknowledge these owners have no freaking clue. They're doing Jimmy has them on whatever seventh head coach eight head coach. He has a resume of doing shady stuff outside in the business world. He clearly has no clue what he's doing in the football world ruled in the Cleveland. Browns are full on dumpster. Fire and the One thing that Colin is going to hang his hat on one of the greatest takes ever is when your organization is in absolute shambles. Having an immature. I is probably not an ideal person to draft number one overall you know. Derek Carr with the raiders become pretty polarizing. Are they going to keep them. Are They GonNa take them to Vegas is a good enough is not good enough. Check down too much thrown away on fourth down. Will he ever be good enough. The team gets good enough to Kazillion in the playoffs. Those are all valid questions. But here's the one thing I know about Derek in six years and I've wasn't I like the I personally am not even quite sure where I stand on him as a player. It's definitely not as strong as where it used to be. I've seen how dysfunctional the raiders are firsthand. And he's handled it pretty damn well. And he's handled it well because he's a pretty mature guy and he's not he's basically the opposite of Baker. Mayfield where if you would have put Baker Mayfield in that situation. The same thing that would have happened this happening to him now. What happened to him over the years in Oakland because these franchises can never figure it out or just in constant turmoil? They're always interviewing people every couple of years because the money's irrelevant to them which is crazy as it sounds. I mean they're they're paying million dollar coordinators to go away head coaches that they'll eight or nine million dollars. It does not even matter them. It's all couch money. I with my two hundred dollars is stupid because at two hundred dollars to me means more than the former or eight million dollars to these infiltrators by far. They're getting free two hundred ninety million dollars from the from the League every year. That doesn't even count the money. You're generating in your stadium ticket sales all the other stuff parking so this situation is just not going to end. I think we're going to continue to see this because you go. Who's going to win for the next couple of years? All the chiefs ain't GonNa stop winning the Ravens. Probably you're not going to stop winning even if the Patriots are no longer quote unquote the Patriots as long as that guy named bill because the head coach. They're going to win now. Maybe not win twelve thirteen games. A year they'll be nine ten even if they take a step back the bills pre DM stable. Gosh Shannon's not going anywhere Sean. mcvay you would've thought the building was was on fire this year. They went nine and seven. You know what the browns would pay to go nine and seven seriously. They just had the best roster in their last twenty years according Gordon. I'm just based off people known Cleveland. See tweeting about it that fall the team closely. They want six and ten the lions who kind of felt like a pretty good team when Mike Three games drafting in the top. Four so the same team. Stay shitty all the time to think. Like the raiders. Lions the browns same teams always always back. Like maybe maybe the bucks now kind of breakthrough because they have a good head coach but they were kind of gift that head coach the only reason that Bruce Areas the head coach Tampa Bay buccaneers. Because he got sick. Can you just kind of retired if Brazilians. That wouldn't have you still would be Zona. It's like they were ever going to get rid of him. Would you get these head coach. You stay with them and the the Redskins I keep getting back to Ron Rivera. Listen you get rid of Bruce Allin. That's great but bruce. Was He picking the players players. He wasn't negotiating the contract. I don't really know what he was doing. I think it's a little window-dressing that it's easy to point the finger. He was more of the problem. Here's what I do know every day and I talked to couch Shanahan last week in just watching his press conference. He's take multiple jabs. The guy that truly is the one meddling in everything about who to play say what plays to run is the frequent owner so that and that's the one constant in all these organizations unless they sell is the owner and no. No one has a crazy. Because I don't know if you can overcome that the same jobs typically come open every year because it does not great jobs you can tell me in theory. The giants job should be good. You'll like Saquon New York giants massive market some history. Yeah they want a couple super bowls with Tom Coughlin. But I got a Dave gettleman. It's gotTa be my Jim. I get Chris Mortensen buddies with Tweeden. They're not firing Dave gettleman because he picked saquon Barkley. MOM could've taken saquon Barkley to you could argue. I and I love to go running back number. Two overall. He drafted Danny dimes. Are we Danny dimes. Is some franchise quarterback might be had some moments. But he might not be hell. You could argue that. I saw more upside at a drew lock in the last month and he started Danny All Season Long So this coaching Jin Carousel the sympathy. I have for these organizations. And even some of these fired coaches slim to none and I. It's going to be a lot of hope and these guys are going to get hiring the same press com last year. They sweep press conference about Freddie Kitchens and look what happened so it's just same shit different pile. Hey Miles it's me Jack uh-huh right here right next to you next to me. Yeah just like a work. Hey I wanted to join with you to tell people to Ituna into a very special episode special up yeah of td the is Akea is this is actually look. I know you saw. The social media is at the Elliott. Oh so he said what. Are these two juggernauts podcasting doing their when Mazda calls me up and they say miles. We know that you're loyal. Mazda owner we want to align with you Um because you get it yet. You know what I'm willing to answer the call and help dinged help. People understand the power of it so we did is. We actually got to record a a special episode inside the new Mazda C X Thirty where we talked about Kinda like flow states and feeling alive. And how we feel alive. What makes us feel Yeah it was really doped actually record inside the car. I got to press a lot of buttons and make them mad because of like please don't fumble around in here but said I'd like to explore nonetheless nonetheless. If you actually want to check out the first ever see thirty check it out and Mazda. USA DOT COM slash IHEART. Or if you're trying to check it up. Irl them pull up to the local dealership today. Okay let's dive into some of the playoff teams. What I did is I just ranked? I didn't rank. I mean I just took the seeds. NFC AFC and I just put a word next to it and it on a quick and we'll just move on star with the NFC. My my my preferred conference. Actually I don't know I like them both equally but the NFC the forty niners the word or the phrase that I picked is earned. It they were are the best team start to finish in the NFC all year and if it wasn't for one of the great goal tackles you know the best goal. Oh line play. We've seen since Malcolm Butler pick now. There was clearly more on the line and the Malcolm Butler pick than just the one seed or a five seat or you know depending ending. Both teams were going to the playoffs but that was a huge play. That might have been one of the bigger goal line tackles in a regular season game. I've ever seen so the forty niners earned it deserved it. Seattle was not the better team but won't get to them in a minute but the forty niners are thirteen and three cow Shanahan. The hands had a phenomenal year. Calling plays Jimmy. GAROPPOLO's come into his own nick. Boza Holy Moly I. I was wrong on on him. He is he is unreal. I mean he might be one of the better rookies. I've ever seen in my life like name me a better defensive line rookie you can say. Yeah Alden. Smith had I think fourteen or fifteen saxes a rookie. The difference was he played in he was just a rotational guy. Didn't start one game was a backup. Now he was the nickel pass rusher but they are depending on. Nick boasts not the run chase the quarterback just dominate and he dominates nominates. He is a certified ass-kicker God's good the Green Bay packers. I don't get them I. I really don't loves it areas Smith. I liked their defense. I love their front. I kinda like their DB's but I don't know man. Rogers that game against the Lions we all have off days. I might be having enough podcast right now. You might have an off day next week back to buy back a work. He's had kind of an off off year and he missed some throws in that lions game. It's one thing to overthrow a guy on a go route or be have he's got some random receivers in there have the timing off on deep comeback across the Hash. That's traveling thirty forty yards in the air. It happens all the time happens to Brady and his prime manning mahomes you name it. He missed a couple as they say in basketball. Some bunnies someone's that Aaron Hall of fame. Rogers hits in his sleep and I don't know now they're the two seed. They went thirteen and three. I don't see a dog. I don't see it the New Orleans Saints. Either they're dangerous. That's the word I would use. Dangerous Actually League is the one that text me that he thinks they're really dangerous. I agree now now the part that makes them a little less dangerous is when they kick Minnesota's asked we'll get to them a little later they're gonNA have to go to Green Bay and then go to the forty niners honors. What's crazy for the forty niners? This is captain obvious for them not to make sumo. They're going to have to lose at home and they've been slightly better on the road actually but it's like are they. Don't lose a game at home. I think the one team that can beat them at home in the I guess two teams Seattle and New Orleans New Orleans. Excuse me I've been. I've been told. Stop calling the New Orleans Saints. Are The saints. Go to Green Bay who I think the saints are better than Green Bay but check the weather. You know. It's high the high twenty s low thirty snow. Hell could be colder in a week. That's not GONNA be easy. Even if the saints are better Philly what a culture year for them and you know you gotta give went some credit. Everyone was Kinda crapping on him. I kind of went off maybe over a month ago like come on Carson. You gotta you you gotTa stop throwing these rockets guys five feet away from you and he just Kinda got better got better and these last four weeks. He's carried a team of guys. I fall football for living. I watch college football all along. And I've I haven't heard of some of these guys and even some of the guys that I had to look up and I went Greg Ward Junior guy the Guy Oh yeah. He's the wide receiver on London. Scott or Boston Scott. I don't know any of these guys. And and he did it and credit to him credited doug this was a culture year for them it's nice to have carson. Everyone's like Oh you're gonNA lose her all. This money can't make the playoffs. He made the playoffs. And Doug do you know three. He's straight years in the playoffs. Deaf town in Philly there on them but man another year in the playoffs. This you could not exactly ten and six or eleven and five year but COBB had there was a report. I was watching the red zone and it was going back and forth basically between the cowboy game game and the Eagle Game. And they're like Brandon. Graham has just gone to the locker room. They don't think it's that serious but the reason why the locker room is because there was a line nine to go into the blue tent like they they lost Brandon Brooks Their Star Guard on a pat at basically sums up on appea- he's out for the year. What how does that free can happen? Seattle the only thing that comes to my mind are are two things really toughness off nece but ultimately Russell Wilson in the analogy. I use day on the radio was if you've ever seen lone survivor with Mark Wahlberg loved the book It's one of the books I read before I went audiobook. Only he gets in those guys get into a position. The former Ranger Navy seals into a position position where they're surrounded and they don't have the high ground and when you don't have the high ground now I've never been a war. Never been a navy. Seal Love Watching Navy. ABC's shows you're basically screwed especially if you are easily outnumbered like they were in that situation in Afghanistan and they're surrounded everywhere and ultimately we actually three of the four guys died in more Warburg's character. Marcus Latrell somehow lifts running away from them. Firing back and I'm not trying compare football to that level war. Even though we use the analogy going to war and stuff I think most of us know what it means. I have nothing but respect for fourth goes online nine for the marines any level but Russell Wilson was a the equivalent on a football field where he had no business of coming out alive of that game when it was coming winning the game and somehow against San Francisco. That's much more talented much more healthy. He still found a way at the last second to get that ball in a position to win the game. Just a remarkable performance by Russell Wilson. If you don't think Russell Wilson's one of the best players as you've ever seen one of the most remarkable magicians in the history of the League. I don't know what to tell you. Minnesota one and done I I see zero chance. Let me repeat zero chance. The Kirk cousins goes on the road to the saints and Sean Payton Drew Brees and that team which is absolutely absolutely rolling and even has a chance if he can't win just random Monday night games. How's he going to win a playoff game in the dome in the dirty south? In just the hotbed of football right now you've got the LSU tigers playing there in a week that they're playing for the national championship. Joe Borough Yeah drew brees. Yeah Sean Payton Bring All these records Michael Thomas Fun Cute Little Story Minnesota Sia. AFC Baltimore dominant. They really since I think about week four when they lost the Kansas City. They never lost again and they have been awesome now. I do have a little bit of a question on this team because I don't think that. Listen Lamar is an incredible athlete and his running is running back like I mean. He's Berry Sanders Anders. I do think that these in the playoffs they gotta take that away from him and force him to get into a position where he's gotTa pass now. They had the lead. They can just run the ball on you but if you can get a lead on them you'll force him to pass and they'll get away from just their their bread and butter. Which is the run game if you can and stop the run game or just make them a little one dimensional? I think they can't be beat or at least make Lamar prove that. He can beach that way because they haven't really had to do that. He's had a lot of. He had multiple foreign five touchdown games where he got through five touchdowns on Monday night and then you look at the box one hundred yards. That's that's not normal so I'm not trying to diminish what Lamar accomplishes the. MVP The league. But I think it's going to be a little more difficult starting now. Kansas the city there little lucky that rough. It's magic out hot. They weathered the storm Mahomes knee. I dislocated and they. They lost awesome games in the middle of the season but their point well right now. Their defense has been awesome. It has been lights out for over a month. That defensive lines plan plan honey. Badger makes multiple plays a game. Honey badgers bad as they did lose thornhill. WHO's the rookie? Who's been playing really well as sneaky big loss but I I think the chiefs right now if I had to pick or my pick to win the AFC? The pats. I don't think I don't think any patriot. Fan would tell ya any otherwise they are in absolute shambles losing a Ryan Fitzpatrick he went eighty yards with with sp first round by on the line. You're at home against a team that was quote unquote tanking. Three months ago. That the one thing to lose Miami random October week seventeen gene win and you get the two seat and they couldn't stop him. Say That out loud. That is insanity. I'm picking the titans to beat the Patriots. There's this year or excuse me this weekend and I I actually feel pretty confident about it and I I am a borderline patriots stand when it comes to ballot check comes to Brady but I I think they are. I think they've done this year. I I really do. I have zero confidence that they win this game. If the Miami Dolphins and Ryan Fitzpatrick can beat you. You don't think the Tennessee titans who have a running back that looks like Khalil Mack. Who led the League in rushing who have AJ Brown that also kind of Khalil Mack? Who just dominating and Ryan Tanning? Who's pretty damn good? And they have a coach. The kind of knows the way bill and Tom Thank. I Love The Times this weekend. Houston did they're just the ultimate hot coal team. I have no clue what to expect you. Could you could convince me to things. It'd be hard to see them win by twenty because the bills defense so good but you could convince they win convincingly you know just in control the whole time bills never have a chance or you could convince me they get blown out and get blown now by the bills. That score could be like seventeen nothing so again. It's it's on the Houston Bill Scale. But I don't know they are. The great wildcard hard in this whole term because they do have a quarterback they do Hopkins. And then you have a coast has been in a lot of big games one that many of them but they're the biggest. He's hot and cold team. I think in this whole tournament the buffalo bills just physical. They are like upset city here for both these teams. The bills and titans ends to win. But I I know the bills can do two things. I know. They're not going to be intimidated. Plan this team. They have a corner. That in theory in White did should play with Hopkins. The now they're wild card is the quarterback you know he can't have one of these games where he's overthrowing everyone you ha- you have to complete pass in the playoffs. This isn't you know week week. Seven against the Jaguars Plan Vance Joseph in the cardinals. We got a complete some passes on third seven in a tie game in the third quarter on the road. In Januar- this is this is the big boy games. So that's why I if I was going to bet on Tennessee. I'm not probably going to bed on Josh now. I can't bet on a quarterback that I can't trust to complete basic passes but if he's gone and that's just streaky quarterback and that's kind of what he is their infrastructure and their style. Dial they can win this game now they make a run. I guess if if the PATS Titans win the bills win the chiefs would get ed. The bills. I'd like chiefs there. They wouldn't really score the titans upset city baby upset freaking city. There can't be a a singular more important personnel signing in free agency this year. I guess it was technically a trade that for Ryan Tannehill Hill to the titans. Because if they had just acquired a Josh Rosen. Nick mullins just some random young guy or we're just some crappy old guy like a chase daniels. There is zero percent chance are in the playoffs because Mariota clearly early-season forgot how to play. You had to bench him and if they just want to put it in some other random guy like Mason Rudolph Duck. Hodges type. They weren't they they've been explosive on offense. I mean AJ Brown. I think what has nine touchdowns Derrick Henry been awesome and Tannehill though is had rushing touchdowns and when I say rushing touchdowns. I've watched multiple games as you're sitting on my couch and the Red Zone Ryan tannehill diving over guys. In the end zone. Like Diskette Willis team to victory. They all I can say. Maybe he's upset. City Rabl Label Ryan is eight out loud. This is one thing right now. I'm picking Ryan Danneal to go into New England and win a playoff game. If I say that out loud five times I might just stop myself. Go John You're the biggest idiot. What are you talking about? But if you've watch the Games in two thousand nine hundred nine it's not as crazy as it sounds. Can I tell you about my friends. Linked in hiring.

Okay let's dive in Joe Borough and some. NFL Stories really quick. I think Joe Borough officially is one one of the craziest college things we've ever seen ever to be to go from two thousand eighteen. Now it's a little over hyped. Like nobody wanted them. People Act like it came from D.. Seven he signed a scholarship to allow state. So you can tell me. You wanted to three star undergr-. He went to Ohio allstate at a high school. Raise your hand if you know anyone that went to Ohio state at high school. Not Now like people that you've met later you're in life or follow you know some former. NFL Player on twitter. I'm saying out of high school. How many people do you know that will house code? You showed up to your high school or wherever you played high school football or went to high school neighboring players. That's a leap thing to happen. So let's not act trek joe bureaus a little engine that could but clearly backup guy transfers. Lsu again transferred to Lsu. Say That loud so hyphen up the underdog thing but when it gets LSU is first years fifty seven percent sixty five picks. I remember watching a couple of times last year thing. Yeah just cool little quarterback you know better than what they've had but nothing special this year at first. I thought it was a little over hyped. I T. I remember being out with some friends early in the season and get dinner somewhere and we were having some drinks and they had had the Lsu Texas game on in the background and a couple of POPs. And I was like I remember firing off a tweet like holy moly. That was died after he was like second or third touchdown. That's ex- game. He made a couple of plays in Austin. That we're just this kid man guys playing well. LSU's got a chance then game after game after Game Sec Championship game by the end of the year. You're like heisman trophy. Lock this dude in what we witnessed the I get. It was Oklahoma. Aw but to have seven touchdowns in that first half to run around and throw these balls on the move moving around with your Michael Vick. Throwing absolute dimes forty to fifty yards down the field. I don't care how damn good Jefferson is Maas. Kit Is the other sweet wide receiver is and I've been told their suite for meadville standards talking first rounders a couple of those guys he's hitting them in stride in the hands as they're running four four speed it was jaw-dropping. How incredible that first half was against Oklahoma because everyone by the end it was like Oklahoma? Sucks yeah guys. They're not UC Davis. They're still Oklahoma with multiple draftable players number nine the Murray Kidd it is a borderline first. Rounder the defensive coordinator is viewed as one of the better defensive. Coordinator is in the country. The guy they stole from Ohio State Guarantee I always grew up his name but the ball guy. He knows what he's doing. Joe Borough Bay that guy look like he should be relieved of his duties at halftime. Joe Boroughs two thousand one thousand nine hundred fifty seven percent sixteen cents five picks. It went up seventy seven percent or excuse me to seventy seven percent in one year. His completion percentage increased by twenty percent. Twenty percent he went from sixteen touchdowns to fifty eighty five touchdowns. And when you're watching these like it's not like he's I remember Mariota used to throw touchdowns and it'd be like guys wide open. He's hitting guys in coverage in stride on the move that you just go. Yeah I don't even know what to say anymore. Just just take them number one people going like what's his bus factors. You just gotTa take this Guy Number One. I don't even think there's an argument like the level in which he's plight light. Now you're GonNa do this in the NFL. Doubt it unless Joe Brady comes with him and Hell Joe Brady be the head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals in a year which might not be a crazy move but the season this kid had is. I'm just thinking of some seasons in college. Sports Carmelo Anthony in two thousand three when he led Syracuse the National Championship. It's probably in the last twenty years one of the better. Just I mean that was a basketball thing but one and done season controversies and boom championship. The Brow Anthony Davis Habitant Basketball squall. A couple of times and looking Carmelo Anthony underachiever and he's still a pretty unreal career. Anthony Davis become the best players in the league. That's usually happen into basketball. Not Football because in football of your one your wonder there's usually a huge red flag. I think there is somewhat of a red flag. Why did this happen but I keep thinking thinking like doing it over and over and over and over and over again it'd be one thing if it was a one year wonder with like six five or six games every single game? The Guy Plays in. He eviscerates the competition. If he wins the national championship throws four or five touchdowns against Brent Venables and Clemson. I think it will go down as the greatest list single collegiate season we've ever seen and I don't even know how you describe it beside. It was like Peyton manning mixed with Tom Brady in an LSU issue helmet mixed with a little. Michael Vick is it was. It was incredible thing to watch. Sometimes you just watched something you go. Yeah I don't know if I've ever seen this before. And you know when you see it if you were to throw in three or four touchdowns in Oklahoma Game. They won by twenty points. Twenty five point like this bad ass. Awesome do Seven touchdowns in the first half seven. That was that was crazy. I'm still I would argue. That's that's crazy. The craziest thing to happen than even Seattle San Francisco and Seattle San Francisco. Sunday night was nuts but that game just that performance given that he had just won the heisman and Etto Chiran the do keeps living up. Keeps answering. The bell goes some stories Adam. Grace just refused to say that he likes Levy on bell. I don't know he just hates Levy on belt. It's just that simple. They ask them. Do you think he'll be back next year and he's asked the GM like Adam. Do you WanNa do not like this guy. Then Levy on bell quoted the tweet with like a Jif. Just come on Adam Adam is not I. Don't I guess appreciate guys refused to capitulate in the sense of. I'm just going to do everything the way that you guys is. Want me to do it via the media or the fans but this is like you're not going to trade him just do you hate him. That much like was he really the problem. Now maybe he was. I don't know anyone with New York. I mean I know Phil Savage but I haven't asked him about this. I don't I don't know I don't get it but cases cases weird with that Jameis Winston. I don't know what can be said. That hasn't been said but thirty. Interceptions is just an incredible feat. It is a it's a milestone number to end the season with a pick six to start I don't know if he started the season with picks and he started his career with a pick six seven pick sixes thirty overall interceptions and then to say to to have the the incredible lack of self-awareness the after the game that yea take away a couple of picks Ballin come on James. It's like are you serious. You can't take away. Those those picks happen you thirty of them. I was thinking today when Philip rivers that thing that went viral him kind of crying at the end of the season. And you start thinking you know Philip Philip Rivers. This guy laid it on the line but God. He had a pretty bad season. How many picks Heathrow twenty-five he threw eighteen James Through twelve more interceptions Philip rivers? If you watch the charger game this year it it's impossible to watch charge game now. See Him throw multiple best because it felt like every charge game I watched three and James Through twelve more picks james picks aren't just like I'll just get rid of them you thirty and there is the other side of the coin where at least he pushes the the ball downfield either thirty three touchdowns but James You thirty picks Q.. Imagine if you added up the yardage of the Pixie through I know. He threw through over five thousand yards through thirty three touchdowns thirty picks over five thousand yards. You could add the interception yardage do might have been a sixty five hundred yard. A quarterback raiders finished the season after going six and four one in five one in five they can say they made progress. They want but you finish one and five and you limp your way to Vegas. Technically they're going to have as an Oakland and they're going to training camp and Napa. It's the only team that moves but actually doesn't leave that's ever happened in. NFL history but pretty bad finish. And when you watch the Broncos you go are. We sure that they don't have more upside. The raiders have a long way to go. Somehow Somehow Mitch. Trubisky led the bears to a game. Winning drive against the Vikings backups. WORST CASE SCENARIO FOR THE CHICAGO BEARS FANS BAT leads the bears to pick up his fifth year. Option for you guys. So now I've heard from a couple people that know or the would have I wouldn't say no. You know the only people that might not it'd be like Tony Kahn. And shod con people that are pretty tight in the league at Mar Doug Marrone GonNa Survive. There was a story this weekend ended. He was going to get fired. And that's just seems to be false anthony. Lynn feels like he might survive. I Know Dean spanos despises paying people. So maybe might keep them so he doesn't pay him to go away as well as other coaches he has in the past. But I don't know man I would get really Anthony Lynn. You're not AH YOU'RE GONNA go into the new stadium in Los Angeles Anthony Lynn. Good luck on that and bet the broncos. I watch a decent amount of drew lock this last month. He's a pretty intriguing player. I actually think drew lock has a chance to be pretty good. I mean he's got A. He's got a pretty potent arm. There was a scene after the game with elway on the field next to him. You could see elway was had a pretty big smile beaming ear kind of like yeah. I think we might have some here next year. Bradley Chubb Schauble Back Off Injury Bombs. You know I don't know if he's quite what he was still a good player. They have another good draft. I think broncos could be a team next year to make a little noise choice for the playoffs Lien's Redskins lions win three games the the redskins won. I Dunno to game three games. They were justice terrible. The redskins won three games as well they combined with six games. Both those two teams desperately tried to win games. All all season long like desperately tried to win games. They combined to win six guide. What just trainwreck franchises guy? I feel for the fans of those teams all. They want to win games. They both of them mustered up three wins. Free wins a three win. Season is is about as bad how does against right because as we see the winless seasons are outliers they happen once every decade and then like a pretty crappy seasons like the Brown six and ten a six and ten feels bad. A three win season is just awful. Remember those NFL films. He's put up those bloopers. That's that's Kinda what a three win season feels like just bloopers after bloopers and for fumbled after picks after balls hitting guys in the helmet stuff like that and Man Carolina crumble rumble. After they got rid of Ron Rivera I mean what a gutless finish to the season. Could they have tried any less. And I get their quarterback back situation Kyle Allen will greer to suddenly got awful when Ron left but that that actually makes raw book. If I'm interviewing Ron I got well Ron clearly you were. You're the foundation of that place. Because you left. I don't know if the you know. They say the cats away the mice is will play. was anyone listen. Anybody feels like key clean. McCaffrey were probably trying I. I don't know if anyone else dried. Because that franchise fell apart Situated on the Beautiful Beach Baja Mar is spectacular.

Obviously boroughs unreal dominance. There's no way the bengals don't take him. Listen the pod talking about how big of a deal it. It is for a player to fall into a great organization the draft and how we've seen players time and time again have much more success when they follow the better organizations. This seems to be the case more so skilled players I rather than quarterbacks because a quarterback and dictate a lot of success of how good an organization is Breeze Wilson. ATC what what is possible. What is the possibility that borough denies the Bengals enforce a better team to trade for and what implications will that have on him his legacy and expectations around him where he can pull the trade? Well I think we forget I mean elway. Did it five symbols later. Two Super Bowl rings. No one cares ally. Did it two Super Bowl rings. Be Bella check twice. He's been the man of the year in the NFL. No one gives us yet. I think Joe Borough Roll. What makes it a little complicated isn't as heisman trophy presentation? He kinda did a little like Lebron Brandon himself is just a kid from from Akron and he played in Cleveland then he left but he ultimately came back and one thing you can't deny and I don't blame him ultimately for leaving. La Akron the city of the state of Ohio. Means a lot to Lebron way job role. Talk like the State of Ohio means a lot to him and like. You said the one thing with quarterbacks order bax is I think especially when you're young like boroughs actually little her for a rookie but you'll be twenty four years old or twenty three years old is I think he's going. I don't think that I can just turn them around. And you know watching a little bit of their game on red zone the other day Gadjo Mixon's pretty good joe mix. It's a really good like last half of the season I just. I don't see him. I don't see him doing that now he could I think the way he would do. It is I'm going to refuse to sign nine with you. I'M NOT GONNA sign with the Bengals. But after his heisman speech and I would have said not knowing anything about him beside him. Being from there I was that might be on the table but after watching that speech and how much those people mean to them. I thinks he's GonNa go to the bengals because that's for the most part in the in the NFL. You just go to the team in the draft you and if you're the number one overall pick you get thirty five million dollars used to be the savior of the franchise are the packers the worst. I ever team to get a by their schedule soft. NFC East Week raiders chiefs without mahomes barriers and lions in their own division. We're very good. Don't think they have a win. Against A legit get team all year. They're destined to get blown out when the saints come to town. The divisional round Rogers isn't what it used to be outside of Devante. They got no wide receivers. Jimmy Grandma's shelve of his former herself. All I'd say is that if if the game against the same on a neutral field like a bowl game I'd say I completely agree with you. I The saints are GonNa Boat Race them but the Games in Lambo and if it's fifteen degrees and it's freezing freezing cold. Do you have faith that drew brees at forty years old. Who has historically not been great outside? He's GonNa go out Lambeau and just let him up because of the game was was if it was reversed in the packers. Were the three in the saints. Where the two we would all agree the saints are GonNa Destroy Green Bay? I don't know I the the packers I I am in agreement there one of I'd have to go look like just I forget you know. All the teams have been I but for the most part usually one and two seeds or like the niners the Ravens the Patriots the chiefs Guga teams. I I do not view the packers like that a big reason. Why Roger's been off but I I do Kinda like him home just because they're home field advantage in the playoffs? Offs is a major home field advantage. And I mean major homefield advantage. See if I can What would the score be of Seattle was healthy? Twenty six I think Seattle could played with the forty niners. They were healthy. If the if the Seattle was fully healthy they would be one of the best teams the lake. They'd be the forty niners. It'd be acquaintance game. It still is a coin flip game because Russell Wilson's incredible so even if they're terrible they're still actually going to be good because it got Russell Wilson. And if they are good with Russell Wilson Wilson. Then they're just going to be good so the reality is long as you got Russell Wilson. You're going to be good that simple whether you're healthier not. It's it's he's the he's the great great equalizer right now. I'd say in sports more than any other player. It was remarkable that they kept that game. So close do you think cam getting a starting job back I would. Yeah I mean what are they gonNA do will greer looks bad cal. Allen fell off the map I guess the kicker kicker would be who's going to be their coach. Maybe the coach despises Cam Newton for some reason. But it sure feels like it's trying to Cam. Newton is going to be the starting quarterback of the Carolina Panthers next year. How can the obvious? Pi Now be reviewed at the end of the game the NFL should do something about this. What do you think possibly do well? I'll be honest. I saw the replays lays it looked like the offensive player pushed off them. You know I don't have a big problem with that play the the quote unquote. Pi didn't get called because on the on the series. These were the niners when they punted. It was second and five and they called unsportsmanlike penalty on play when the offensive Lineman was just trying to block guy. I had no clue what was going on and the barely got touched. So I don't want I'm kinda tired of doing is complaining about the refs you now and I and I get the refs grew up and I've gambled on Games where you wanna you would like to physically beat up the REF I I've been there I get it but I I. It's exhausting constantly. Blame the refs. Just win the freaking game. You know even Ohio State that call where they guy. fumbled wasn't egregious call. It was clearly a fumble should have been a touchdown or I don't even. I was Kinda drunk by that time but whether the score there ball whatever. The situation Jason was but how had their chance to win at the end of the game. They had their chance. And just feel threw interception the Enza and and maybe it's just living in the bay area. Having the raiders. Always blame the referees. I just I can't do. It now. Did the referee screw up last year in the NFC. James Game of course are there agrees airs at the end of the games the cost. I don't think the wanted some obvious call because the offensive guy is creating contact can shove defender so i. I don't know I just. I can't take blaming the refs constantly anymore and I despise the referees and I think think a lot of them should be fired. So you're hearing from a guy that's not like pro ref. Well I was wrong. Hostile beaten the niners and the division around here. Maybe they will. I mean if if the Eagles and the saints clearly as we all probably agree even Vikings Fan can't feel good about this game. beat the win that game we will get niners. Niners hawks packers saints pretty solid. Second Round Middlekauff Mail back. That delay of game by Seattle was a loser move. Do you think that delay of game considering knows a home was a worse. Look Than Not Rushing Sean and the Super Bowl. What do you think it was worse? Personally I think the delay of game is extremely inexcusable. Worse than the Super Bowl. I had a forty niners executive. Now I think he was a little drunk on late late late Sunday night after they won. Said what you think Carol's GonNa get destroyed tomorrow for them. That and I'm like yeah. Am maybe I just think that so much happened after that the you kind of lose sight of that play but it was a pretty egregious error by the offense. I don't really know who's to blame. The niner guy. Thought Carol was the blame now. He's the head coach so anything that happens on his watch in Defensive Pete Carroll. He's not the offensive play caller. That's Brian Schottenheimer. Brian Schottenheimer and Russell Wilson kind of working in tandem. Then offensive position coaches are in charge of if you're changing personnel like if you're the running back coach and you want more sean or homer. He was wide receiver coach tied in coach making sure the right groups and that's not p carroll that's those guys job what does the famous bill belichick saying. When it's when it's written out do your job? I think a lot. Some of that's on Russell Wilson as well like you can't in in filled today on doing some radio and John Clayton was on and he said I guess Peak Harrelson's press conference days like I think sometimes when you spike in that situation in your mind as a player and I don't know if he said it as a coach but maybe people on the sideline just assume it's like a tight end when you only got forty seconds seconds. I agree it is a that. Error cost them the game because if they if they just get to the line don't have a delay of game they run and marshawn in and I wasn't I you could probably ask ten different people from Bella Chac Andy Reid Sean. Payton every offense of Guy Guy. That's coaching the League. What what they thought of that? Pass Russell Wilson that ultimately got intercepted by Malcolm Butler and I would imagine decent amount would support it given given the situation and you still had other shots marshawn Lynch but that delay a game it was bad it it it killed him because the niners loose the game. If you're the forty niners how do you feel after beating the shit out of the seahawks total domination and winning by an inch. How do the forty forty niners play better and still almost loose? No turnovers only two sacks garoppolo totally comfortable in the pocket because the Seattle's their boogeyman. I mean Russell. Wilson's the bogeyman. Seattle franchise the bogeyman. They can't shape that franchise ten franchise. It could be careful me you in like six other guys plus Russell Wilson. It could be Nick Bosa. Navarro Bowman Patrick Willis Justin Smith and we'd still score some touchdowns just Seattle. They J- There's just some aren't even know they. Just there's just something with that franchise against the niners hot take take forty niners the events we better without Saal in two thousand twenty thoughts. Well you'd have to tell me who the defensive coordinator is I would lean. No I think Robert Solace pretty good. I think he's a pretty good coordinator and bias. I like bald guys and I like Robert Solid but I I would lean no. I've been watching a lot of the cardinals this year and I love the away the counter place such a great talent. Do you think the cards have what it takes to make to compete for the division in two or three years and if so what pieces should did they add this year in the draft. Will you go. They got the quarterback. They have a running back. Chris Kirker have wide receiver. They drafted a bunch of wide receivers last year. So there's there's some of those guys where you need to step up the draft some offensive lineman you go house their pass rush while they got the best. Pass rusher in the league. They could use some more defensive lineman they could use more defensive players. I don't think a coordinator very good Vance Joseph by cliff Kingsbury. I think said today in his final press conference. They're going to keep them. which would not be my move? I would relieve him of his duties you have to. You can't compete for the division with imagery coordinator but yet they just need a ton on a guys on defense. When they were having with Bruce Areas they were clearly good on offense? But let's not forget from collapse Campbell two dams be to the honey badger the powers I think his name. What Buchanan Tony Jefferson like? They had dudes they were flying around. And wrecking shop with Todd Bowles also blitz and everywhere so that you gotta be good on defense. You can't win in this league. Without being the reason the chiefs now have shot defenses. Good the reason the ravens are playing. Good Good Lamar Jackson and the defense the niners defense. You can make fun of Rodgers and the floor all you want and trust me. I have but Zahra Smith looks like Reggie the white so when you have a good defense and you can make plays on defense gunshot. Quick question for the pot so I'm a razorback fan in and watch greenlaw play a lot. He never looked like that. But I have seen come up big in a few big games for the forty niners. So is he really that good. And and what do you think of them I think in the NFL today guys like Greenlaw. Who is you know? I think like two hundred thirty pounds really athletic linebacker that that's modern day football linebackers that can fly around and he is a big time athlete and I think it also helps. When you're you're just around a lot of other good players when he's on the field he's next to Bosa Buckner Armstead Sherman's on one side? He's got Fred Warner on the other side of them behind him. He's got Jimmy word. And when he's healthy quasi tart so he's got in D.. Ford is GonNa come back for the playoffs get great players around him all over the place all he has to do with just whatever his job is Bella checks s whether it's just you know cover a certain portion of the field man up with a tight end or a running back just help bracket player in the red zone. You don't have to do that much and you can just use your breath lettuce and there's one element of the niners team. This year separated them and I think helped make them the number one overall seed. They're physical cool and you cannot play for them. If you're soft the moment you start acting softer playing soft. They bench you as they did in that game with Keller weatherspoon the the physical bad asses only in green lost. Just he's he's a physical dude in sometimes. That's what's tough about college scouting. There are probably a lot of people in the country. Even the niners took him in the fifth round. Soggy drafted the second round. We've got some athletic attributes. But maybe a little underdeveloped Upton East planet at school like Arkansas fired a bunch of coaches and he gets the forty niners and you just maximize his talents. That tackle was textbooks. Not even the right word was just. I mean it's a historic moment. For the forty nine franchise won the division against their rival. short-term rival is the religion rivals now for a decade in rivals actually strong. It's been a one sided rivalry. Four time they beat him in a decade forth. They were thirteen three against until that game. Now they're thirteen four- Seattle for those winds. So I'm with it is fascinating and I. It happened with a lot of players. You Go God. I thought this guy was going to be good. But he's really good and I think you gotta be Green Lights flashing more than he's like. He's not he's not blue keithly or anything but he's he's done a hell of a job for man he really has. Thanks everyone for listening. Have a good have a good week.

The the forest buckner of the San Francisco Forty niners stops by one of performance by Joe Berle one hour from now. We're going to play a game called Joe Borough versus uses not Joe versus the volcano. But would you take Joe Borough over a list of NFL quarterbacks after what we saw last night joy Taylor is joining me. How are you I I am? Wonderful has a great game last night it was enjoyed every second of it was going to be a little bit closer but yeah I am. I'm glad I was worried about job. And LSU is fantastic. Six hundred twenty eight total yards against the very great clemson team who was favored to be back in this game next year. It should be noted the O B J Jarvis Landry. Lsu Team lost three times and finished in the outback bowl. This is what happens when you get the quarterback right they cinch it all together. LSU's been a football factory for as long as I've been watching football but never had a team like this because they've never had a quarterback like this in the San Francisco. Forty niners have got a lot of good players in the last three or four years and a great coach but they're foreign twenty money without Garoppolo. Aaron Rodgers got hurt a few years ago nine games. He missed three this year with a rookie head coach. I'm still not sure a great coach. They've won fourteen games. Joe Borough tied it all together but I wanNA talk about a bigger broader part of this story and why football continues continues to be so much more popular than basketball in America College. Football's a million times more popular than college basketball and the NFL ratings are up on every network this year in the NBA is down nineteen percent. And I like basketball. But one of the reasons football connects with so many Americans. It's US Joe. Borough was not even considered an NFL prospect in September. He will now be picked number one. It's it's mid-january hard work kicked to the curb transferred and doubted. He's coach -able. He worked his ass us off and he is going to now make millions of dollars. The Joe Borough story doesn't happen in other sports other sports. Don't have half of their players players like the NFL that are undrafted. Look around Football Baker Mayfield transferred twice cuyler. Mary told the transfer Russell. Wilson had to transfer for Cameron. Aaron Rodgers went to junior colleges. Patrick mahomes nobody wanted him. Drew brees Goethe Perdue. Joe Berle had to transfer. It's the story of overcoming of being told no pampered. Kids are spoiled. Kids are bad adults basketball basketball. Too much into pampering. Oh the horror highschool to duke for six months coach K.. Bill Self Awful football says son come to our school minimum three years probably four at manned up five we wouldn't consider paying you. You'll get hurt. You may have to ride the bench and transfer but when you come out of the tunnel of football you'll be emotionally and physically a man and prepared prepared for the millions you can make basketball panders and cottle's and Pampers football all does not. That's why half the League is undrafted. That's why it's us. It's overcoming Ed or Giron mocked and kicked to the curb. Football develops men. I've been an NBA locker rooms hockey locker rooms baseball locker rooms and football football locker rooms an NFL guys. After four and five years of getting their butt kicked in college they come in Hungary. Grateful and man man they marry earlier they grow up faster because they have to overcome this weekend in the NFL playoffs. The highest drafted quarterback is Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins. His first team bailed on him. He got hurt you you know we want to get a younger healthier guy what Ryan Tannehill do whine about. It complained. Call his agent. No he packed. His bags grabbed his family and went to Tennessee And Rides the bench and crosses his finger for another opportunity and football was gives you one people get hurt. People disappoint disappoint and Tannahill will now play FC Championship. I love basketball but I respect football because it asks so much of you and it develops you. It's not a race to get you paid. It's a race to make you a man. Joe Borough last night is planned his arse off and I texted an NFL. GM He's a really good GM. And I say what do you make a job borough and you know what the GM told me he he goes Outta. I didn't know in October but every time I watched him he got better. Yeah he got better because he had to transfer and he was. He was told at Ohio. State you're not as good as the other guy and last year he was humbled. Joe Borough is not just the football story. He's an American story. He's relatable I. I can't wait to watch him play at Cincinnati and he may not make it. Maybe it looked like Baker or maybe looked like cuyler. Or maybe a look like Lamar Russell Wilson. But it's a story. I can connect with hard work overcoming coming kicked to the curb. It's the story of the NFL playoffs this weekend. And the story congrats to Lsu and Joe Borough of last night let me shift to this it it was also it should be noted and I know you won't believe this. It was a great night for Trevor Lawrence. It was Trevor Trevor Lawrence. Since he was fifteen years old and I saw him at a camp when he was sixteen. He was so much better than all the other our senior quarterbacks and he was just a junior. Trevor Lawrence has not been on a football field probably for close to ten years years and been the second best quarterback in that moment on the field he got hit last night. He got rush last night. He got humbled last night. He didn't play very good. Everything was sailing. He was nervous anxious. LSU Can do that to you. Trevor Lawrence's life so far and I'm not saying he has earned it but it's been a lot of Saturday's when he's up by thirty two at half that is not the NFL the NFL is about making you uncomfortable. And because dabbles a great coach and venables a great coordinator and into football factory. He's thrown a five star receivers and handed off to five star running backs and he's got four and five Star Offensive Linemen and the ACC right now doesn't have another program with those kind of players. Trevor Lawrence his college football career has been a lot of forty seven. Point wins and until last night not a single loss loss and the loss was great for him and he was humbled and he was nervous and he was overwhelmed. I mean good God how good are. LSU's used defensive backs Lord you'll be seeing them on Sunday real soon that freshman Lord but this is the story of the NFL transfer doubted benched. Trevor Lawrence's career didn't last night didn't have one and I'm watching him last night and I still think he's an increase. He's not going to drop in. The draft means nothing to US suffered a rare and serious medical injury. They will be moving up. They'll be multiple multiple teams moving up and scrambling and giving away half a dozen picks to get to WHO's smaller. Who's had multiple injuries? Trevor Lawrence. Losing doesn't isn't hurt his stock. One iota do you remember Andrew Luck losses. Nobody cares. He's aid all time transformational talent but his career until last night was really about comfort and last night he was uncomfortable and he sailed it and he whistled overheads and he got whacked. Act Any any look like for the first time in a long time not remotely comfortable in the pocket and afterwards I think he knows it was okay first of all if you did a really good job brought a lot of pressure did a good job mix up the coverages but just end end of the day. I just didn't play well enough for us to win. You know too many missed plays by me. Miss a lot of receivers and you know just wasn't my night. Manna socks but you gotta look back on what you've done and we've done some. We've done some great things. And we've got a lot more in store head to great quarterbacks once headed to the NFL one on his head of the NFL and about a year just loved watching both of them play the good the bad the ugly.

Now I've got my own personal opinion on this. I did not think he he was a good fit and Cleveland and I think he did what he did to the colts. It did not do his reputation. Any good I think he is lane kiffin. You'll love him or or you hate him and there's a lot of NFL. People that will never touch Josh mcdaniels. Because what he did to the colts and Chris Ballard and Chris. Ballard is closed with Andy Reid in everybody in. This league. Loves Andy Reid but it does matter that he's coming back to New England as joy said because I do think he matters more to. Tom Brady and New England right now than any other team. And I had said during the year that if Brady hit the market there would be a Lotta suitors but one of the things I like about my job is evolved grow. Watch stuff I sit and watch games all weekend all day. I get new information and I've said before I was a pilot. Nuro my plane I got new information. There's a lightning storm coming. I I would take it and turn right and avoid the lightning storm if I was a doctor and had your son or daughter on the table and had new medicine that could help them. I would use it and in Sports I. I don't stick to opinions. If I get new information I thought Brady had a bad December. I thought he looked tired. He is forty three at best. Marginally athletic athletic and now expensive and kind of stuck in his ways. I watch Joe Borough and I watched too and I watched Justin Herbert. who was very good in the Rose Bowl? Oh and I see Trevor Lawrence and I watched Justin fields and I think to myself. Is there really a market for Tom. Brady I don't know you know I've said this before. Four about Russell Westbrook. The League is trending away from Russell. Westbrook who's having his worst statistical season in a decade. It is a shooters league and he does a lot well all but he doesn't shoot. The League is trending away from Tom. Brady old expensive and not capable of great mobility as offensive lines fail. That's not where the League is going so ask yourself what is the market. We've got three. New Bad. Teams will solve their quarterback issue. Since he's getting reading borough write it down. Miami's probably getting to a and then the chargers or Carolina will move right up not back to get Justin. Herbert I think all three after watching borough the last couple of weeks I think all three are going to work in the NFL. In fact there's a new trend happening in football which is awesome. If you're a pro football fan or Laura College Fan. There's almost no first round quarterback busts. Anymore Josh Rosen. It hasn't worked Paxton Lynch was a bust outside of that. The last fifteen like thirteen thirteen. Or like you're GONNA WIN Games second round guys third round guys. You can win games the NFL is adopting more of the college principles. It is allowing for much much greater success and a much greater hit rate for quarterbacks. They're not only working in the NFL. Now they're working fast like they're working. King Fat Josh Allens like he's a playoff quarterback. Lamar Jackson is going to be. MVP so they're not just not just working. They're working quickly and I'm watching borough. He's going to work pretty soon. And Trevor Lawrence will work and to is going to work and Justin Herbert. He got better than the last. Two Games against Utah Wisconsin. He's GonNa work and I'd ask you who wants a a forty three year old quarterbacks expensive the games moving away from him and you have a quarterback deficit so you say Jaguars no oh. No Nick Foles was making twenty million. You don't have any space more. Well the raiders. They got their car. Come on let's let's move past Derek. Cars ars good. He's going to stay. He's going to stay Oakland and then I start looking around and I think to myself Chicago. No they can continue to pretend that Mitch trubisky's their guy also remember twenty-seven-year-old on your old teddy bridgewater is on the market. I like Teddy Bridgewater. I I would have no problem if I was a team. You know out there like the colts are you'll get teddy bridgewater and then I would draft a couple public quarterbacks behind him. I don't think he's a ten year guy. But he's twenty-seven he's smart he learns a playbook doesn't make any mistakes he doesn't win all the games for you but he almost never loses a game for you but what's the market now for Brady. The more I think about it the more I watch college football the more. I see all these young quarterbacks working the more I watched the trends of the league I I don't think there's a huge market for him and he's getting his centreback. Read that story yesterday. He's getting Josh mcdaniels back. They've got some cap space. It's a fairly fairly young team. In certain spots it's expensive and others like Stefan Gilmore and old and others but I think it's much easier for New England to go out and get Amari Cooper than it is is for. Tom Brady to go into a new city was little bit rigid little bit expensive unless you have a great offensive line like the colts that seems like a good fit for me. I don't think it works works. I mean I think the colts is the one I kind of think works offensive. Line smart respected coach good. GM ready to win now. I don't think Giselle Giselle is GONNA say. Let's move the family to Indianapolis. I think she's tolerating Boston tolerating it. She's a supermodel. Would rather live in Miami Los Angeles. I just don't think there's much of a market I think it. I think it's drying up. I really do. I think New England's the place for him one more heard the heard streams twenty four hours a day seven days a week within within the iheartradio APP. Search her to listen live or on demand. Whenever you live Andrew Luck and was in college? I was like sophomore year. I'm like Number One peg Trevor Lawrence parents. I think he's great. I think he's a transformational talent. all-time talent I don't look at last night and worry about anything. Good Lord Folks People who've college games all the time. Tom Brady lost a few Trevor Lawrence is great. But Joe Borough somebody that you know. None of us thought he was going to be this in September. Most of us didn't think he was going to be this in October. A few of you didn't November. Many of you did in December now January. We're like yeah. It looks like a number one picky got better and better and better and he's an older kid and he's been around it's five years but it's like he got better better better better better better so I think he's a legitimate number one pick today but the question becomes. How much do I like him? So I like to give my opinions on stuff and then if I'm wrong you can call me out. Never afraid of being wrong. Don't give a rip about it so I'll just size up. We're going to play a game called Joe versus over over the next ten years. This is over a decade. Now would I rather have job borough or who joy Taylor offers you ready to go all right here we go okay. Would you rather have joe borough or Lamar Jackson. Oh that's easy. I'd rather have Lamar Jackson. He is a unique athletic talent allen he also has the Ravens Organization behind him. And Joe. Borough we'll have the bengals organization meaning Baltimore tends to draft better players and have better coaches coaches. So I would take Lamar Jackson. Because I think who your coaches and who your owner is and who your GM is matters but rather have borough or Baker. I think burrows rose a better prospect. I think he's bigger. I think he's more athletic. I think he throws a better Deep ball he doesn't have silly videos with law enforcement. I don't think there's any question that burrows a better prospect if you ask. NFL GM's today about who's better prospect. Its Job Ryan burrow or Big Ben. Okay it's ten years I would take Joe Borough again. I think big band is GonNa come back there. There've been stories this year that he's not sure I mean a lot of people like the injuries worse than you think so. I think Ben's got about two years left in the league. And you either have borough or Tom Brady Eighty. That's Joe Borough again. I I think burrows actually a better prospect. Tom Was And he's also twenty-three instead of forty three right. Tom's got maybe two years. Here's left's remarkable. He's twenty years younger than me is going to be playing in the same league. Would you rather have joe borough or does Shawn Watson. It's a tricky question because one is a world class athlete. beat the and one is with Houston which is hard to get your arms around. They keep winning their division but are they well run I'd probably go to Shawn Watson Watson because I think he has a quality boroughs good at a lot of stuff what is he great at. deshaun is a great playmaking quarterback to Sean. Would you rather have Joe Borough of Patrick Mahomes not real tough. Mahomes is the best quarterback talent Over the next ten years bro. Derek Carr borough is a bigger quarterback. I think he's more athletic quarterback. It's not an easy one because I like Derek Carr more than anybody else but I don't think Gruden's going to bail on him and I think I I think Gruden and mayock have drafted well so Derek's got some good pieces around him. But I think the Bengals have some interesting offensive pieces so I would take slightly borough here. What about Joe Borough or Carson Wentz not close when says bigger stronger? Better arm I think winces in all time talent. He's been beat up. But if you didn't if you watch borough in the last three three or four games of this year folks put a. I'm Joe I mean. He put a team on his shoulders and carried them into the playoffs. Wins his a phenomenal quarterback town. Would you rather have joe borough or Dak Prescott. Oh come back to they come back. Hey would you rather have Joe Borough Daniel Jones Daniel Jones. I left on him. I watched him in college. I didn't think NCUA special and then I watched them in the NFL. And I'm like he's special. He's a really good athlete. They're very actually. They're very similar. I missed Daniel Jones. I saw him in college and I did not think he was a spectacular and I made a big mistake and I think the giants are ready. I actually do if this coach can coach. I think they're ready to pop. I think they have some good players. I I like downs. But I'm GonNa go borough there. Where would you rather have borough or Aaron Rodgers GonNA play for probably six to seven more years As far as arm talent not close errands. Also one of the smartest guys GonNa take borough while we let's be honest struggled last year at Lsu it's GonNa take them a while to figure out the NFL system. So Aaron Easley Joe Bureau or Kirk cousins. This is an easy when I take. Borough I think barrels a better prospect You know I mean he did. We forget is about kirk cousins. Kick Kirk cousins is six one and a half. He's not a big guy with not a big arm and he's not overly athletic attic. He's surrounded by a ton of great players but burroughs a better prospect. How about Jer Jonesboro or his hero drew brees burrow because brees has about one or two years left that that seems like? Would you rather have Joe Borough Matt Ryan Well. Do I think burrows ever going to be a top ten quarterback in the league. No never I know. I think he's going to be a good player. Top Ten quarterback Matt Ryan to top ten quarterback. So I'd take Matt Ryan Top ten quarterback horse for that all the great players. Good God who's moving out. The best statistical season in college football history Baker. Mayfield one heisman. I don't know that. Would you rather have Joe Borough or Jimmy Garoppolo Blow Garoppolo Garoppolo's Kyle Shanahan and George kibble. That may be the best young coach and the best young tight end. got is so Jimmy. The pieces are elevating. Listen you're asking me next ten years. I know what I'm getting from. Jimmy Kyle Shanahan Kyle Shan Matt Ryan the MVP. I mean you he we gotta be honest about this stuff. It's not just your talent whose elevating it. Yeah I mean where you go. And who's Payton has helped drew. brees Kyle Shanahan guarantees Erin. Tease Garoppolos. Problem I mean guarantees it for the next ten years. You'RE GONNA multiple pro bowls Joe Borough or your favorite Russell Wilson. Not How close Russell's the best football player in America. That was an easy way for you. Would you rather have Joe. Borough are jared Goff all right so Joe Brown gets act Taylor Jared Goff gets his mentor. Sean McVeigh and by the way the rams have shown ability to get free agent. Cincinnati hasn't rams draft. Well again I get Sean mcvay with Jared Goff you get Zac Taylor and Joe Borough and by the way cheap owner and an organization. That is old school in their drafting and scouting. They don't have don't have a huge scouting department. They tend to be like one of these teams that never moves around in the draft. They just if they have six picks they make six picks rams are playmakers and dealmakers during the draft. They're going to get better players around. But rather have joe borough or Tyler Moore Mary Conroy fantast. Nobody watched him play this. You're Kinda Murray's fantastic. I love watching him. I think he's the next Russell Wilson. He's a baseball player. He slides. You'll never get hurt. I think Murray none of you guys are watching him. I live right next. Arizona's I watch Arizona. I think Kayla Marie is special. I'M GONNA go with Barrow there. Would you rather have borough or to To tools drew brees to two is a better tease a better prospect. He's he's not because you're going crazy on this I. I'm not going crazy number for a long time. Now I've always liked borough to. Would you rather have Joe Borough or trevor. Laura not even close glows. Trevor Lawrence is the best quarterbacks in Andrew Lock in college he lives close though Lawrence his bigger. He's faster he's got a cannon. I think we're just going crazy. I think it's overreaction I overreacting. I'm very consistent are. Let's revisit it another. Go at it Joe Borough or Dak Prescott I think okay. Let's consider everything. Okay Mike. McCarthy Zeke is over the next ten years I think I'm taking back attacks tax right now. Do we think might McCarthy's better than Jason Garrett I am. I've always been high on deck so this is this is tough for me but I really. I'm all in on Jonesboro REDAC- Holy Crow. I what is though I will say this. Obviously we're considering all factors and the bengals are the the number one factor in where you go really determines whether you're going to be successful in the loop unless something happens drew brees ask you know and you wind up somewhere else so somewhere in my crazy mind. I'm I'm living in this temporary fantasy land. Where the dolphins are gonNA trade like three of their picks and move up and get Joe Bureau and Cincinnati is going to move down? It's MacAulay Culkin. I liked AC raw. I got nothing against Joe Berle. But you're putting up six. You're putting up Jimmy Jimmy Garoppolo in one playoff game. I mean over the next ten years ago. We're projecting what's going to happen. Jared Goff is a classic. Everybody hates Jared Goff. He's he's got shot in dealmaking. GM they're willing to do anything to win in La. I am one thousand percent in on Joe Borough the only issue I have which is a major issue. Obviously it's the bengals that's a real concern. He good enough to overcome the bengals. I don't I don't think he's the kind of talent allen that can overcome average now. Baker had overcome totaled fung. I don't really think there's anybody that could come. What happened with the browns around? But I I think you you need a special player to overcome kind of May and Cincinnati's kind of mass scouting. Med borough especial all right. Well there you go joe overseas anywhere. I put my name on all of them. So you people on the Internet can like freeze frame all those when Rosa thirty eight time Pro Bowler Nine Super Bowl rings now. We love that I love. They sure to catch live editions of the heard. Weekdays at noon eastern nine. Am Pacific on Fox. Sports Radio One and the iheartradio. Now we get ready for the NFL playoffs. And I said after this weekend this these are four really good teams but the one to me that can beat you more ways than any other. The one that really league checks the boxes for me. From fullback to D- lined offensive tackle the quarterback coach to safety to tied into wide receiver is the San Francisco. Forty forty niners and joining us. Live via the coward Global Satellite Network deforest Buckner brought to you by Mercedes Benz the best or nothing. You know. It's interesting afforest. Thanks again for coming on the show when you play a team like Green Bay and you have success against Green Bay and then you're going to play them again guys like me in the media. Say Ah brother this is trouble. Do you take anything from the Green Bay. I win or does Kyle Shanahan say bury the tape. I don't WanNa see it. No I mean you. We're going to watch the game all over again like I we find out. We're GONNA play the packers again. I put that game back on sort of watching film film. You know just looking at things that I could have done better in that game and you're GonNa pick things you know from the game that you could have gone better. Could've did better but obviously we're going to get a whole new team coming into to leave is and everything that you did in. The regular season goes out the window because the playoffs is a whole different base. People forget this you guys start eight no and then virtually for everybody gets hurt. Your both tackles get hurt. Your fullback gets hurt. George gets her got wide receivers hurt and take me back to the middle of the season when you guys went into games and you didn't have seventy or top twenty players. Take me back to what it was like to overcome that. Yeah it was a grind especially having you know buying week four you know that whole part of the season was a grind losing guys and you know it was the whole next minute mentality mentality and just preparing you know taking it week. One Week at a time and Honestly you could see you know the character in the team the grit in all the guys finishing. You had a lot of close games back at in about ten of our games throughout the season came down to the last possession so it just shows oh the testament to all of the guys in the team you know being be ready and staying ready. It's funny but you know between George Kill and some of the players on this team. People were saying this last last week you guys have a pro wrestling feel to it and it is fun. You guys are fun to watch. Take me back to the first time that you saw kittle at a practice. Tesla did you know instantly. Oh Lord we stole this guy in the fifth round. Did you know he was going to be something like this. Yeah honestly mostly his his rookie year you know. Seeing some of the catches he was making in contested passes. You know Just battling defense and Offense Throughout Training Camp and Ota yea seeing some of those catches that he was making you know you could see that he was a special guy and you know the growth that he's had each and every year has been amazing to see and the type of he he made his and obviously overall player. He's a superstar man and his his all pro for a reason and I'm just lucky to have him on my team. Now Robert saw is that good looking bald defensive coordinator who screaming and yelling and then you have kyle Shanahan the genius on the offensive side. Tell me how much Shanahan participate -ticipant in the defense or does he let Robert Run the show. You know I think Kyle likes to see. Oh you know overall what the defense is doing but Solid pretty much takes it over. You know what I mean and you can. You can totally tell practice to even throughout training camp you know both of they they like to compete against each other and especially you know the offense and defense competition periods. You know they're going back and forth so it's great to see you know the competition you know within and everyone on the team and you know just making each other better each and every day when you face Aaron Rodgers you had success the first time but I want you to take my audience to force into you facing Erin. He does a lot of you. Know he's playing at the line of scrimmage he's manipulating he's trying to draw you off it becomes a very mental will game. Compare him to other quarterbacks I would say you know making all those checks at the line nine you know. All the audibles relate into Tom. Brady 'cause played against Tom. Brady my rookie year and you know he did a similar thing. You know what I mean making. All the different place is checking it at the line although audibles everything and getting the ball out and making some great throws so he you know areas of Future Hall of Famer. And you know he's you know he's scary. Okay back there and so you know we gotta do a really good job like we did the last time in. Start with the run game show on the run game early and You know making a drawback bass became and try to get get after early. You know when you look at these upsets Tennessee beat Baltimore. I mean we're all its jaw-dropping and all all of a sudden Kansas City falls behind twenty four nothing and you're sitting there now as a number one seed. You're at home though. The world thinks you should win this weekend can do you ever do. You ever think to yourself man. This could be a trap this. This is a huge trap. Like how do you avoid the upset. Blinders you gotta put your blinders on. Man Automates come in each and every day like we did last week. You know ready to go You know every single guy in the room coaches and everything came in each and every day ready to work Didn't matter you know all the outside noise we got. We got guys that play for each other. Trust one another once we get a good game plan. We just make sure we execute whenever Game Day is and that's what we need to do this week is Jimmy G. A verbal guy. Like Garoppolo at practice. What does he like? Yeah I mean he's a verbal guy you know he's you know He. He's a hardworking. Dumont Movement You know seeing him. Go out there each and every single day Trying to trying to work with his receivers after practice you know making sure they got that connection. everything I think The way he the way he goes about his business he's a true pro. And you know all of our trusses within him Just to see his grow throughout the season has been amazing. He doesn't care you know about the stats or anything you know he. He's wants to position to win. And that's what he's been doing a really really high level this year to forest buckner. Forty niners favored it over Green Bay. Second time in the show. Good luck to you bud. You're an absolute blast to watch. It's one of the best delight in a long time. And now you've got de Ford and Kwan Alexander Alexander. The Band is back together. Good luck to you. Yes sir. Thank you and forget to quasi tart. He's been a big big big part word of our our defense this year. See how like that. That's a good teammate. Right they're giving a guy.

Or wherever you get your podcast. He's as good college. Football coaches we ever had three national championships wanted to coaches to win a title to different schools. Sabin is the other of course. Urban Meyer of via the cowherd global satellite network. Let's start coach. Let's start with this. I think it says a -CCOMPLISH team as I've ever seen they beat all these teams I don't know if they're the best team. But good Lord they beat a lot of good teams and a lot of SEC powers. If I said to you best college team ever what would your reaction be. I think best offenses college team ever would be a great argument of the best quarterbacks season a quarterback ever have would probably be. Yes best team ever did. I kind of looked it up. Sworn in yet Clemson and then you had the Shooters another team that we saw. That had better offense and defense production so I think when you talk about team you gotta find a team that does Ford Estate. And they're both teams. Were top five offense defense awesome. And then the Florida gator team. In a way you had you know a top fifteen offense and defense I think when you put it all together it certainly one of them but you know when you have twenty twenty soft ranked defense. I think that's I think there's some better teams. There's you know you are a very good recruiter. You really understand personnel I mean you just. You've been able to pick a lot of players and you get it especially on offense and I look at Joe Borough and I'm going to ask you as a personnel guy. Does he remind you of anybody you've had does it translate to the NFL in your opinion. Well the ones that I've personally reminds you Alex Smith who's a warrior competitor editor Brilliant Guy. I spent many times talking to joe throughout the year. And I know Joe Brady and M Zinc of the co- the coordinator job really put together. But Joe is very involved in those game plants. He's that's smart of a player in Alex. Pence was the same way so Alex. Smith's was the first pick overall in two thousand and four for Joe will be the first overall pick in two thousand and twenty reminding remind me both though each other. What did you learn about Trevor Lawrence? Last night the Clemson quarterback coach. Yeah I love Trevor Lawrence I I saw it firsthand eyewitness to witness it against Ohio state on loved does toughness. I think he had a couple obviously hype passage yesterday. Lewin accuracy issues. But someone asked me. Do you think that hurt his draft stock absolutely not. He's got another year he's a great football player. And I just I I also get help toughest guy and this guy's top snails so you'll be. I think you'll be the first respect next year. He hit the ball sailed on him coach a little last night. Is that pressure. I mean it did. It did feel like the ball sailed on him. I love that question and we used to. I still tell the story about cartel Jones when he made his first start and in the national chess. Game Against Wisconsin Alabama. We played most of the game outside aside the Hash marks because I knew adrenaline would be pumped up. I knew no the worse it can happen. Is You overthrow a guy down the middle field overthrow down the sidelines incomplete. So Oh I'm sure. He has played in the big show before. But you know. He was inaccurate compared to what he's been throughout the most you've won three national championships. When when you're preparing for a game of this magnitude coach do you have to coach a little different because the stage is so dramatic and grandiose else yeah a lot of people think once the pre game speech? Like how do you motivate your team. There's very little pregame speech very little motivation and I can't speak for or coercion or coach. Sweeney but I would imagine it was all about. It was all about actually lowering the pressure. Lower in you'll calm and everything doubt when you're playing a team team that you're supposed to beat that's when you have to charge everybody off by going but the bigger of the game but robbery game the playoffs or National Championship. It's all about preparation and again that team healthy I don't I don't I'd be shocked. I'd love to hear what Kodjo says about that but I think it's more about just not not some great pregame speech. You never really had failure at the college level coach got fired. I was told no by USC. He's a remarkable Kabul's story of American redemption. And I have to admit I I am shocked by. I always saw him as a coordinator great recruiter. A wonderful man. But I I never saw the head coach thing. Are you a bit surprised at or Zorana. Hoisting the trophy last night. I love coach. Oh I've known for twenty years how I knew him back when he wasn't Miami and then Sonny Lubick was one of his dear friends and I worked for sunny so I got to know way back in the ninety s and then I coached against Ole Invest and. I think you know he'd be the first to tell you that he probably made some mistakes there. And when you when he was maybe not the first choice at Lsu also they hire are guy you know. I was always happy for. I thought he he's the perfect. Fit Thrillers you. You understand culture. And he's a great recruiter and I think the first thing he did was surround himself with elite coaches. And you got Dave Aranda you got the Co Offensive Coordinator's offense and let him do his deal. That's that's motivate inspire recruit. Yeah it's fun. Last night I gotta be honest with you. I Like I sat and I picked Clemson to win and about halfway through it. I'm like you know what this is a good story I'm happy for Lsu. It's good for the state of Louisiana. It did feel like to me. That clemson came out. They've been here before and had a good first quarter but boy coach the last three quarters I just thought. Lsu was a better team. Their secondary was absurd. I felt Lsu was absolutely a better team team is how you saw it. No doubt they had seven wins against top ten teams seven wins against top ten teams. Their body work wasn't even close with anybody else in the playoffs. And that's why I picked them to win and pretty much closer to score. I thought because it Trevor Lawrence because of the Coaching staff coach renewables and obviously taste better before Thompson. I thought it'd be a game of wes but how about this last year the NFL draft. I'm so Josiah Ron and he said you realize you're boy voice saved our jobs and he's talking about Joe Bureau and he wasn't talking about this early. How great of a quarterback because you still learn it he had a very workman-like career last year? Last Esta a year last year but his leadership his ability to motivate others inspire others. Everybody else around him their level play. He looked me right in United States. Your boys saved our jobs. And that's one of the reasons. I picked them to be in the playoffs right. Allie jump kosher on because Joe Joe told me you know. He was here on on the Fourteenth National Championship team and he knew what that chemistry is like and he felt that they had it at Lsu and they stay healthy and really happy for that group.

We speak to you from our present which we can only assume as your distant past the turbulent time that was the early twenty first century during the great great cataclysm that will surely befall our civilization. We began this monumental reference of strange obscure human knowledge. These recordings represent our attempt to compile and preserve wonders offers and ESOTERICA that would otherwise be lost so whether you're listening from an advanced civilization or just reinvented the technology to decrypt our transmissions. This is our legacy because he you. This is our time capsule this is the US UH-HUH UNIV- accessed entry 707 dot. Da Four one four certificate number two five four five eight the leaf blower funding drift. I buy my a now discerning. Teacher Ling's will we'll hear in the background. Presuming that future. Ling's are a have auditory organs. They're not just reading transcripts description of the omnibus although entirely possible and I support them. I like podcasts. That have been transcribed more than Listening to them even so if you're a nominee bus featuring you like to transcribe podcasts. You're in a slave society where you're you're large eared. Slaves have found these records created in a text version of them for good job. Genius Way to be on top of that your pyramid but those of you who are auditory creatures will hear in the background of this episode Reappearance of the leaf blower that appeared in last week's episode or. I'm sorry a Christmas Eve episode. We had an amazing reaction to that people were just like like. Let's have more of V floor. Can we get more leaf lower noise and John and I thought police we can do for devoted fans and what says Merry pre-christmas more than power tools that are noisy and controversial. That's a gift for Dad. A like it just stopped. What if the League Florida stops right as we? Oh I think it's perfect. Because a leaf blower on the show throughout the show would be pretty annoying but Elif lowered just to herald the entrance of the show dude. It's pretty nice. I totally floors four to herald things. Wait the leaf blower routinely goes off and then start six. And that's the beauty of the leaf if it if it just made a continuous noise you would eventually not here the leaf blower but a leaf blower has some kind of trigger that that allows the operator to go and and and sometimes it wants a little rest. So you'll get hurt and then you'll be like this is great. I can't believe he's finally. It's it is strange that power tools. Have that operator option. It's kind of like the the Mercury Space Program where the astronauts said. Hey we don't want to just be a tin can like give us a control. Giving some switches do you think the original leaf blower was just a thing that was always always on a handed it to the guy and he was like well. You know I'd like to have a little more a ton I mean. All power tools should should just beat on or off if a lawn mower just made one sound. It's the river and what about my agency is a gardener. I know well. Here's how I express my art through landscape architecture. This is what the future should know. All things will eventually be Roomba sized where they just become you know little robot little robot. Discs travel the world. I just saw a movie about There it is. It's Barret goes on the other side of the house wall. I was trying to think of the name of Silicon I just have this movie about Silvio Berlusconi and the movie starts with his Immaculate Lawn out in back of his I don't know where he lives. Sardinia say his amazing Sardinian beachfront media. Mogul a state and the lawn is just patrolled rolled by a series of Roomba sized automatic mowers going about their business keeping his lawn perfectly manicured twenty four seven. I just want a device that keeps the moles from piling giant. molehills don't offend are subterranean listeners. Right sorry malls. They're the worst like a sorry mold but we're going to slam them. Live under the ground. That's fine do whatever you want under their right but do you have to make a little pyramid of dirges because why you carry the dirt to a single location and built a giant pyramid. That's how civilization starts moles. Not by building tiny little pyramids everywhere you go. We got thousands of little ones. You're a nuisance. But as soon as you can build one big one you're a force to be reckoned with your demographic yep no and then start sacrificing virgin moles on the top up. I was GONNA say former political action committee one or one or the CAN. Do you have as a dad as an American dad with a big the house. Do you have a power tool collection slash slash fascination. I feel like my my little noisy things. What are your garage or kind of limited? When you're an American debt you have to noisy kids rights but do you have a weed whacker which is very noisy super noisy dangerous got a little fiber thing that flips around decapitating weeds? Or whatever else you put under their moles do you enjoy using it or do you hire that work out. I used to enjoy it and increasingly with age and and with the novelty wearing off I have stopped enjoying it like when we first got people to like do the stuff. I wanted to take care of our sprinklers and whatnot. I hated preparing tearing sprinkler heads every spring. Sure I would tell the guy. Give me a quote but then give me a quote without mowing because I want to mow my own lawn. Yeah and then the quotes were like the the same. Because it's just like the New York Times Sunday edition cost eleven dollars and then all week long. It's an extra fifty cents. Apparently just just they have the lawnmower there anyway. It costs you more. If they don't use it right at that point I even stopped mowing my lawn. Plus it seems like most of my lawn mowing was lawnmower. You're maintenance but this seems like something you would have farmed out to your kids. Who are looking for chores looking for reasons to justify the their food consumption like before my the kids were old enough to actually do it and now that my son is old enough? I feel like now. We've got assistant in place. Where a vast invisible underclass does all this work for us? And I'm the worst typically wrong. I'm a huge part of the problem. Soon we'll be a poor Genzer right with no visible means of support and no access to my amazing wealth and no history of doing menial Labor as a child no experience with it I mean I let me let me come to Kaitlin Defense here. There's no reason that she shouldn't be put to manual labor. Just as much dylan. She's only I guess she's. She's starting to get old enough. She could be mowing lawns when we go to. When we go to my in-laws place and he's got a big manicured golf? Of course looking. I think I mentioned it on the grass show and a riding mower dylan will happily hop on the writing more or do whatever you want a ride though but yeah that's a free ride but at home home like the the best we can do is hey we have a cleaning service. That comes every few weeks. Hey like Iruma disaster you need to pre clean for the actual cleaners right which always seems like a like a droll irony. We've prepared him for a role in which this invisible slave class exists. But you still have. Ah slightly inconvenience yourself to avail yourself right to to clear a path for them. When I was I think what was is it? I mean I was seven years old. I think when my mom I showed me how to use a push mower really and we had a you said you had one of the the non power our kind. Well we had an we. When I was young we had an unpowered more right and I and I was given that job? There are several pictures of me polaroid. Pictures Zor washed out CODA chrome photos of me leaning my entire body weight into this push mower where the handles was above my head As I because we had a giant lawn I mean we are. We had a third of an Acre smallest lot in Alaska. You can get. I was given this job mow. Oh the lawn and I spent. I spent an entire Saturday out there pushing this like you know those handlers are not. That's not an easy method. My memory of this is that you enjoyed. It loved well because it was a it was a man sized job and then I got old enough that my mom allowed me to use the electric motor and the mower and ninety eighty percent of that was just keeping yourself from mowing the electrical cord like you. You know you had to do this. Constant constant moving of the of the the extension cord my the first time. I've tried to use the weed eater. She cut the cord. She cut the cord but the electric mower mower was was old fashioned one and so a lot quieter than a than a two stroke gas gas mower but still pretty loud thing and I felt. I was very empowered by having a power tool but when I graduated to the gas lawn Mower I still fill every time I start up a gas mower I feel like a grownup I just have bad associations with the Moore's that won't start I I feel like what a hassle this is. Why do I why do I have to every spring after? Remember pulling out pulling okay. What's going on? It's the starter starter in most gas mowers have two cycle engines in two cycle engines. Are One ones where the lubrication the oil that is necessary to lubricate the the. The mechanical parts is actually added into the gasoline. I've never had the kind you have to mix. But what a hassle. Yeah it is is a hassle. Well you don't mix it yourself but you put poorly oil into a separate receptacle. It mixes into the Gal that I've done are there. Some kind re actually have to mix two parts. Yeah fuel the old-fashioned to cycle motors like the dirt bikes and older mechanical stuff. You had to take a bucket and pour a UP. Some mixture of gas and oil to alchemist basically to get your lawnmower started. Then the small engine manufacturers realized that if you just gave the consumer an extra place to put the oil and you had a little machine that mixed it in their little drip that would make consumers a lot more comfortable tavern. I have a four cycle engine. One that actually has a separate lubrication system much more expensive and most gas mowers don't have that but But those mowers those those. Moore's feel like it's a lot of ways it's our as young suburbanites your first exposure to being in the charge of a powered machine. It absolutely is dangerous. Feeling of ownership. That comes because you can imagine the adult mowing his lawn. Yeah and you realize that you no you push down the thing and that things starts by itself and you're like Whoa. I'm walking. I'm now that guy. I can turn and wave jauntily to neighbor as I take a pass across my front yard and you see either. You see the results of the work you're doing. I mean there's nothing more satisfying than being than make it. Well I mean there's plenty more satisfying the sexual intercourse is better but look the greatest pleasure in life but well node law. That's what I've always said problems. It's human nature to hate problems. But why. Why is that after all problems inspire us to mend things? Ben Things make things better. That's why so many people work with IBM on everything thing from city. Traffic to ocean plastic new schools to new energy flight delays to food safety smart loves problems IBM. Let's put smart to work visit. IBM DOT com slash. SMART to learn more looking back at at your well mowed lawn lawn and looking ahead at the at the scraggly weeds. I mean that's a that's a big thrill. I definitely had that every time I like to me. The weed whacker was the epitome of that like You have just tamed the Wilderness. It's the only time I've ever felt like a pioneer and you used to have a much larger lawn than you do now is in the city city. We have a small lawn and that's fine. It's better for the earth to have a small better for the earth. Blue Grass is bad as we as we've described. I just bought a new house. That has a very large bramble and in going down there and hacking away at the at the unwanted invasive species and trying to improve this property. I realized that this kind of gardening is a up is deeply satisfying at the most basic human level to go into a overgrown ravine and turn it into a sort of you you know to build the most rudimentary trail. It's a meditative work that that you're immediately in a flow state. He really are. It turns out that are most primal hatred is for thicket. Yeah right it's like if we could just turn all of our human animists that we turn on each other we could just turn away to where actually belongs if there was a lack bury's if there was a continent that was just overrun dicker bushes and we could each send a representative army there to combat them. It's basically the plot of starship troopers except those bugs. They have some turns out. They have fully conscious. Will you remember when George Bush. After George Bush started to unwinnable wars he would clearing undergrowth to pressure whatever the rush right and he seemed happy. Yes Scrub Oak Problem Arkansas. We need a continent of Scrub Oak. Maybe one global warming makes Antarctica turns it into Nevada or whatever that's what we should use it for just put blackberry bushes down there send UN forces and blue helmets and just get out their aggression. It's like when when my dogs need to go run around outside. Well part of the as as we discussed on the grass episode. I mean a real symbol of suburban success A is to have carved your plot of land out of out of the bramble and now be responsible for maintaining it in high style and as you you get richer and richer you have more and more land. More and more impeccable grass. Most people are not rich enough to have lawn rumas. But but you do you keep up with the Joneses kind of necessity that you because you're gonna see their nice long next to yours if yours. This is the Dan Ryan Lawn. Everyone's GonNa know it's back we'd Wecker. It's delightful let the record show that I said what the topic are. We going to do under the Sun. And you said what do you think about the leaf blower now. I thought you meant what you actually meant was. What do you think we can record while my neighbor is using his leaf blower right and I thought you meant should we do a show on the leaf blower right and it turned out? I have of an awful lot of leaf blower knowledge. So this show replaced The Franco Prussian war or whatever we could have been doing right now. This is a spontaneous this spontaneous omnibus on the leaf blower. That is currently right outside our window rights out right. It's the winner of the bunker. So really the only the the only the third person who has third most influence on the show after you and me is relief labor. Duck my neighbor Doug. Yeah my neighbor. Doug likes power tools. He keeps his house. Impeccably manicured and and I recognize the sound of his leaf blower being doug's leaf lower and. He's it's here in the we're in in the depths of Seattle winter which usually has no snow but it does have a lot of leaves clogging soggy leaves clogging gutters pioneer. GotTa blow them. You gotta blow all that stuff before it gets soggy and starts blocking the gutter or literally your your stream flood. Also this is the argument for leaf blowers now leaf blowers czar. A fairly new technology the original sort of concept of a of a backpack blower hand held blower was a was for spreading. Insecticide was a fog machine like to to spread. DVD to kill mosquitoes and other patents. Yeah it post dates. The Romans were not walking around with big bellows. Well they may have. Let's say you dermatitis how how clear the leaves but the first the first kind of backpack emotive power thing. That wasn't I wasn't a vacuum or a or a a wacker was a was a blower that blue insecticide developed by a Japanese company called Q.. GNOCCHI zapped after the war. This is after the war sort of the the pre Korean War so late forties and it was used. This technology was used as a as a fog or all the way through the silent spring era. Jeopardy's worried about guns listen Mothron's or is like they absolutely were but they didn't know that insecticide could be just as bad. They were importing or exporting it to the United States. It wasn't until the seventies is that the idea of a the the idea that a blower just to just a simple blower that didn't blow anything else but but air The I did. This would be a useful appliance not just for garden work but for all manner of kind of municipal maintenance prior here to this everyone raked Richton brew and it was kind of a comic signifier. How awful raking leaves was? It was a punchline about Dad's spending ending all afternoon making a big pile leaves and then the kids would run jump or a gust of wind would blow it all away but it was one of the funny hilarious areas trails of suburbia rents right and and it was not this was before most people have the option of contracting with a landscaping escaping company. That would come around and do this work. It was a symbol of kind of the the the the onerous underbelly of homeownership ship. But people kind of enjoy sure because it's a wonderful sort of symbolic fall behavior. It's just carving Pumpkins to get out and rake up all your folly because it is a chore that you know you're not going to be doing year round so there is that you're like you know for a couple of years. I spent a Lotta time. Ray I've never owned a leaf blower but I've lived under my trees and my neighbors abors trees enough that I had to do so much raking. Yeah and cal you get calluses. But you know they're still being about out nice about being out in the crisp fall air and you know you know that trees going to dump all its leaves over the next three weeks and then it'll be done well my daughter who's eight and a half as you know. Her best friend is Doug's daughter who lives across the street and she and Doug's daughter this autumn develop they they. They watched ghostbusters. Speaking of backpack based technologies and they they were excited about ghostbusters and they were talking the next the the day after about ghostbusters. And how exciting it makes them feel good. Busting made them feel really good so good that they wanted to continue busting and they were talking about what they could bust and they realize allies they could bust leaves and so they started a company the two of them in our living room called leaf busters. They came they came up with a theme song. Which of course this is? The first thing you do is it just ghostbusters theme by re Parker Junior. With a new with one word of statistical then they also combined it with another like huckleberry very hound theme song that they also change the lyrics to and they made a mash up which is their theme music and then they took took rakes out of the garage and started already going door to door completely unprompted by the adults ringing. doorbells saying we're here to buster leaves. Did they have a right to resist fund for them. They had a rate. It was five dollars each Sirleaf now. Five dollars for the for however long it took and we got a fifteen dollars minimum wage in the city lab at these girls were establishing their own their own new economy. I mean we also have anti child labor laws but nobody was putting my kids to work and you know and of course I was then pressed into services the only adult that believed enough in the league busters to follow them dutifully around the neighborhood kind of hiding behind neighbors cars while these girls went up to the front Door in their independence in their new independence and struck. These deals with people. The two of them have so far may twenty dollars each busting neighbors leaves CBS. You didn't tell them to raise prices. They have been suggesting that they raise prices. But they they're contemptuous of me. And my capital Listrik. Dad Busting makes us feel good. Yeah and they're like late. Capitalism makes you mad okay boomer the problem. Additionally in the northwest is that a lot of the debris in lawns is pine needle based yes and so goes right through a rake and a Lotta. The neighbors have said we don't want you to rake are pine needles. We have somebody do that with a leaf blower and so my daughter who a week ago had no opinion about leaf blowers at all has become incredibly anti leaf blower. She feels like they are to percival stealing her jobs. But the second of all these leaders come up here. She's realized that they're noisy Z.. They're dirty and it's unnecessary because all you need is a broom. You don't need this power tool so I've been really soaking in leaf blower animus for the last week. It looks like this is all kind of smokescreen. That's you know driven by the fact that she's been put out of work by a leaf blower. She's like the Detroit auto line worker worker watching the robot do her job but but now she's pretending she cares about the environment the Gr- great irony is that Doug who is currently a belief blowing right outsider in the middle of our show his daughter who is who is one of the main leaf. Clusters isn't that isn't that what we think about about boomers. Yeah they they don't mind they got. There's thanks boomer anyway. The the in the seventy s all of a sudden leaf blowers came on the scene and leaf blowers are They have year round advantages because although raking leaves is very seasonal. A sweeping the front of storefronts keeping the gutters clean. Now it's now it's at ninety second job right. Public Parks maintained eighteen. You know if you had a rock garden and it had debris in entry big if it's well I don't know as as we move away from grass toward white rock birthright maybe climate change will give Iraq or. Maybe I'll just become a tech billionaire. It's really hard to clean a rock garden of debris unless you have a leaf blower talk to me about snowblowers. Is that a different invention. It is a snow blower is a neighbor who has won a snow blower is A. There's basically a McKee at large mechanical. anacle screw kind of the the the type of thing that you would use to augur a whole were well it sideways and it it it It collects the snow and directs it to a To a spouse shoots it backwards shoots it either over to the side or backwards backwards somewhere out of your I mean the classic snowblower move is to blow the snow in the right where you need to be blowing. I hope it doesn't shoot shoot directly backwards because you would just be walking along putting it right and you can the snowboarders have a spout that you can move so that when you turn and come back the other way you can flip it over and put all your snow in one place. But that's an you know kind of Auger based thing and it doesn't work that well with Seattle wet snow either no and the greatest snowblowers are ones That they put on the front of locomotives to clear the snow off off of train tracks. And they are. They're propeller blades. That are the size of a of the front of a train and are they just making a big win win. Tunnel basically the well it no it actually the propellers physically hitting hitting the snow chopping it up and sending off to the side because in certain parts of the world snowfalls heavily enough that it blocks trains. I mean you need. We need these devices. They're kind of their famous Alaska The white pass a Yukon railroad uses one to great effect. I'm trying to imagine a train with a big propeller. It's not like moving super fast. It's it's not like no. It's moving slow enough that this propeller can work but leave. Laura's became very popular especially in California where popular companies where people are lazy or they're paying other people to do their work that's because they're lazy and the recognition that on the part of everyone that that you could do a job four times as fast with a leaf blower as you could with a broom or a rake sort of revolutionized the big cleaning up of public spaces. Okay Okay groomer. Oh but these were. These were to cycle motors in a lot in most cases or they were connected with extension cords which we are not Super Handy and extremely loud extremely loud and polluted. There have been the studies done that. Show that AH using a leaf blower for a half an hour to cycle leaf blower for one half hour of leave blowing puts the same amount of particular emissions and co two gases into the atmosphere as would driving a Ford F one fifty from Texas to Alaska. I saw the American Lung Association Recommends Against Leaf Blowers Hours for that reason. Worse than cars for that reason and also because leaf blowers blow all the allergens and toxic chemicals that have filtered down onto the ground all the heavy metals and Mercury's and are cynics. A you know basically vaporizes them into a cloud that surrounds as you the blower yeah you the blower and anyone who's walking around you know some of those smaller particulates remain in the air for hours afterwards. Is it just because they don't have you know. Autumn automakers put in new technologies into their engines to make the run more efficiently and the small size of leaf. Blower Motors means. They don't have any of those benefits least. bleep lowers and gasoline motors are using very or I'm sorry in lawnmower. Motors are using the very basic the little little engines simplest kind of converter on one but but that would require that it be a four cycle motor. So you'd need you know you you would. They become increasingly complicated. And the problem with the two cycle motor is that they're extremely inefficient in terms of how how how much of the fuel they actually combust about. Thirty percent of the oil gas mixture that goes into to psychomotor just comes right out at the other side. As vaporized petroleum products without even burn doesn't even get burned. So they're not you know they're not It's not even smoke exhaust. It's just just pure black. Got My gas guzzler here. So as as leaf blowers became more and more popular in California as a as a way of manicuring all these you know these these palatial lawns all this all these not not just states but they became very popular in suburbia one of the arguments four leaf blowers was that much of that work had prior been I'm done with with hoses. People would stand out there in their front yard owner M and wash the dirt out of their driveway. Well now you can do with the leap lower and in California Borneo as the omnibus has showed more than once. There's a there's a water shortage. I've never done that but I have have used a lawnmower to rake my leaves leaves to just just choose them up and mulches Montezuma the bag if you WANNA compost. I have spent a lot of time with garden. Hose out kind of washing down driveways because I live in the northwest where water is in abundant Topi s nothing but water. We just gone that California's leave our hoses. On all winter. We use we use water to solve all our problems. My Yeah but this was a selling point for leaf blowers the Labor saving also water-saving. But predictably California is also home to a lot of very special people who are very very precious. Who are we talking about here? We're talking about upper middle class homeowners in Carmel by the Z.. And so the recognition that these were disruptive polluting and also extremely annoying machines caused the residents of the aforementioned Carmel by the to ban leaf blowers even before they were invented. What wait a somehow the they they were using leaf ever attain a level of technology? Such that leaves maybe move magically through the air. We hereby banned them advance. So you're saying they passed this law back in the fifties or six hundred seventy five Carmel by the head head Had banned this kind kind of backpack blower and there was no commercial one. Such thing of it was on. It was on the on the horizon the the the curate to Gnocchi company had introduced the leaf blower as a leaf blower rather than just sort of them all purpose blower blower in nineteen seventy seven. But there were already they already were marketing blowers for other backpack blower for other purposes in nineteen shortly shortly thereafter. Maybe a year later the company changed their name to echo the ECHO company which still sells leaf blowers is one of the main producers of lethal lower but Carmel by the sea was ahead of their time Beverly Hills Band leaf blowers in nineteen seventy eight and net begin a You can kind of see that. It's all communities where the homeowners themselves are not convenience that much by the existence of leaf blowers right. They don't mind if they're low paid staffs brooms yet. Take a few hours longer in a quieter. Fashion Russian right and the argument. You know the landscaper argument is that it costs a lot more to do it with a broom but residents of Carmel by the sea. Right aren't really that concerned about it. Compared to like sitting at home looking at your Faberge egg collection hearing that annoying sound that thankfully now Doug has stopped we've blowing again. Should we change the topic of the show. No I don't think the Franco Prussian war but but wealthy neighborhoods across the country. Sort of like dominoes. One by one band leaf blowers Rye New York and You know it's kind of richest point. One percent and in the poorest chunk of America where nobody's using power tools on their lawn anyway right apartment dwellers or whatever but there's a vast middle of suburbanites who hate the noise. I don't like pollution much but also hate raking more right and as it became more and more of an environmental issue it became more uh-huh easily band or leaps became more easily banned in larger municipalities Washington. DC Los Angeles has really la La bans leave floors. Well Ah yes and Seattle has not controversially right because it is although it is a pollution problem increasingly more and more were electric and then eventually battery-powered has battery power technology. Got to the point it could. It could make pant held leaf blower lowered that had a reasonable range. What's the noise difference like? That's a lot. It's a lot less noise with a with a battery powered blower although there's still a worrying motor you don't don't have this this Grinding gas engine. It's more beautiful noise although this leaf blower that we've been listening to is is a battery powered one. It's an electric power. It's still not great. It's not it's still not great. Do you think it was like if the time comes. That leaf blowers can be made to have harmonious melodious sound. Maybe if if one just played the nutcracker suite can you think of any technologies you would ban right now should they ever exist like would you like to write a law like that. Oh Gosh I can think of so many laws. I WANNA write for things that don't exist yet. Why didn't we do it for like facial recognition like we had the chance all right yeah? the cats out of the bag a the the the thing that battery powered lawyers don't do is they. Don't stop creating eating air pollution in the form of heather kiss still kicking up the stick kicking up then there's even more mercury and arsenic on the ground now than there ever was. It's a true. Oh yeah because mercury arsenic companies that are just. Make it to aerosol it. They just seen all the movies. They're just all dumping it near schools and then the enterprising lawyer the crusading lawyer has to call him out on it. And maybe it's Matthew Maclean. Maybe who knows they're a gas partly blower creates over one hundred decibels of noise in his. It's something that becomes a workplace hazard. It's why you see all those a leaf blower people with muffs earmuffs on the same thing. I now where vampire weekend shows because I'm extremely old hall. It's too bad. Do you have to buy them in the children's in section. Don't they all pink and ever Unicorn. I actually do wear earplugs at concerts and maybe I should have started sooner. I should have done it. I actually have custom custom ear plugs but I like molded to the size of years they drip cadillacs in there or something. I always forget I always forget to bring them. I dislike how the music sounds is when you put them in your your your Dan Hannan and then you put him in. It's like oh well the expensive ones they don't muffle the ones that I have have You can they have a perfect. They let a perfect screen of frequencies through so you still hear that thumping base. Although I I've been doing thing where I'd put one in one ear and then it out. Yeah I liked each year. Goes deaf still but at half the speed but keep me one of your pointed away from the stage and you'll be fun. You could just use noise canceling headphones for your neighbors doors and you smell l. like one we recommend that you listen to this show retroactively. Listen to the show with noise canceling here from so you don't hear Doug now there is there there is still a big market for these landscapers will say that one of the major you know as we move away from as homeowners alike. Well I mean we don't care about the extra cost. Although I think that is convincing for for your regular homeowner like Doug would care about the extra cost. Doug won't spend an extra two dollars to doug wouldn't even give five dollars to his own daughter Rakers as leave he was like I have a leaf blower. He's not a client. Get Out of your own lawn. He's got support leaf busters dog but a lot of lot of landscapers will say that much of the landscaping that happens now is municipal landscaping. All of these public works projects all of the city streets and so forth and that additional cost if if if if people were doing that work manually that is your tax payer dollars and you know that resonates with people but leaf blower technology continues to be a a kind of growth area. In fact just recently Elon. Musk no less than e Lan. Musk announced that this is this year announced that massive laser in space. That will shoot the leaves on your lawn. No Tesla Tesla is working hard battery tech. Is that the main thing. Well no Elon. Musk right. So he's using every part of the buffalo and he's trying to create a quiet electric electric leaf blower situated on the beautiful beach. Mar is a spectacular new resort destination.

Yes yes thirty. Five percent visit our DOT com. That's Baja Mar dot com B. A. H. A. M. A. R. dot com. So here's my ultra. Sonics you just pulverized shoot vibrations at the stuff and it just turns into dust. But then what do you do about the dust. Then the world is covered with a layer of leaf dust blow it. You've got to blow that where you blowing it to. It's still going to be leafed us some more four well there are also vacuums. Do this work right. That can vacuum up and I think if you pulverize the leaves then you could come along behind them with some kind of noisy. Electric Vacuous doubling. The number of noisy things one to inhale and wanted to exile but if they seem officiant if they were all room bas the the Elon. Musk story has an interesting antecedent. which is that about a month before you are known? I'm sorry a week before Elon. Musk announced the quiet electric leaf. Blower Rainn Wilson Star of stage and screen local local legend. Rainn Wilson Seattle Seattle. Dwight Rainn Wilson of the office. Television Program tweeted at Elon. Musk he said. Can you make a quiet electric leaf. Blower I'm a week later. He Lan announced it. Rainn Wilson said. Hey thanks Ilan give me some credit here and he lan said no we we were doing it already meaner Nina. What a Dick couldn't you just be nice and say we appreciate your input? We deserve I know I would like to say hi. Five Rainn in Wilson for for taking to taking it right to to bet he did I bet he launched his fabricated all these backdated documents humans to make it look like they were working on the flowing lasers laser robots But I think I'm GonNa say it was all dwight well. Yeah let's let's let's give Dwight credit where credit is due in less. These are the robots that eventually become sentient and they're all on our front lawns vaporizing arising us. Well that's the thing I mean if you've ever watched any when I'm and I know you have any of those Boston. Dynamic videos of of their robot dogs that absolutely absolutely look like terror. Kill machine has been invented to kill you if The name the name one of that will kill you quick clocking out in your yard pulverizing leaves with a laser beam and then vacuuming them up. There's gotTa be organic solution. There's got to be some kind of bacteria or some kind of illuminates leaves. Choose them up. That's not what was some kind of cool termite. You just unleashing your yard in the morning you wake up and has no natural predators. It's all kind of know it gets so full of the leaves chews up that it just immediately dies and becomes more food and then there's a there's a mole plague. I guess you're you're always going to have these extra analogies. I don't know well this has become when you can do is what we're already doing. Cut Down all the trees in Suburbia as long as they die die of Dutch. Elm Does the cover of American students can use the decline. This problem solving itself very quickly on the lead. Bluer leaf blower controversy has become kind of a a Like a not a personification but exemplar it's the it is maybe one of the key exemplars of a sort of suburban Nimby clueless. NECE signifier you wanted to say signal I do. It's a signifier Nimby clueless nece SNC becau because because so much of the complaint about leaf blower for Noise pollution seems to come from incredibly credibly privileged people who have almost no real problems real problems and no sense that that this is a minor complaint plaint relative to and this popular within our culture right that if you make a minor complaint. There's always a chorus of people there to remind you that people are dying of starvation and etcetera etcetera right. Your complaint does not measure up to the ultimate complaint and. I don't think we've arrived yet. At what the ultimate summit unassailable complaint could be. We need a problem so bad that you can always use it as a punchline. I believe one hundred percent. There's only so many hours in a day. Every minute I'm spending whining about leaf blowers I should be spending raising money for cancer right right. I mean there's always someone whose child died of of a horrible condition a little bit younger than the last person whose child died and that person has and that person probably a quarterback the quarterback whose child was a little older as as mad but there but there is a real dividing line culturally now between people who are defending leaf blowers and people who are opposed to leaf blowers the woke side of this debate. It's not clear I mean really is are you on the other side the earth. You're also with the angry. Ultra rich nimbies. Who can afford manual lawn care? But you're if you're on the side of the worker then you you are also on the side of the polluter and the flavor the mercury and the noise right. Nobody likes mercury annoys. Nobody does and and so. Well how do you I mean what. Let me let me put it to you. Ken As as the Woke Omni Buzzer as the jury of all woke nece. Which side do you come down upon? There's gotTa be some Solomonic move compliant. How do you cut the to cut the leaf blower and half a Are you pro rake or pro blower. I'm pro rake. But I'm pro a vast government program of getting inter underprivileged kids out to to to rake the world to rake the world at at at competitive market hit pay. So you're saying that you have your. If it were up to you. We would nationalize the raking industry. You would pass a fifteen dollar an hour law and put underprivileged youths to work raking the law raking the lawns of Carmel by the sea or anywhere else anywhere for the living wage. That's that's the basis of of my of my planned Which I call lease across America rakes across America. Yeah what's the K.. era kind of a big great society. Camelot what would it be. It would be yeah it would be the elites project administration. The I guess I have to argue for the technology side and say that like everything. Silicon Valley is going to disrupt the disrupt both sides of the leaf delivering awful venture capitalist way. It'll be an APP. We'll be an athlete. Bring some sad a person to your house to rake. You'll find out later. He's getting like eighty nine cents an hour. Write your offer him a tip and he's like we're not allowed to take tips wink wink wink. Please give me food. My family hasn't eaten in weeks. And that concludes the leaf blower. ooh and hopefully it includes your neighbors leaf blowing. I haven't heard it in a few minutes. Oh No it sounds like doug is gone home entry seven Oh seven dot. Da Zero four one four certificate number two five four or five eight in the omnibus. So now you know how to get your topic on the show. Just stand next to John's house and do something annoying and he will do a show about it. Yeah that's right. Let the record show. I have a neighbor named dog as well. But he's very nice and makes sense soap. He'll just bring over. It's not just bring over lavender soaps that he's made in his basement presumably not with human tissue presumably. We assume I wish that You know my Doug is fairly nice neighbor but he has never he has a kind of cake thing that every once in a while he brings over a piece of cake but every gift gift from Doug has strings attached. Not Our dog are doug will bring over the nicer. He'll always tell us I didn't use any human fat or tissue in this and we're like that's odd that he always insists on that but but we believe him Listeners in the unlikely event that social media still exists. In Your era you can find our tweets and posts at Omnibus project on all the platforms. John is at John Roderick on twitter and instagram. I am Ken Jennings on twitter but I don't the followers. I'm fine. Follow John. There was a facebook page at which future links could complain about. All the parallel universe comics. We did not mention on the show. That's currently what it's for right now. At least we received digital communication at our email address. Nobody knows what the is for. Just a weird thing about it could be anything really email electronic. I don't think that's electric mail. No you're trying to addresses the omnibus project. Gene Dot Com people could mail US physical artifacts. Send us all your mulched. Leaves and chick tracts two or all the Christmas friends you didn't want to the omnibus project.

The expenses of the omnibus by pledging to donate at Patriot Dan dot com slash omnibus project links from our vantage point in your distant past when we he may be in the last age where people could be annoyed by something so small as a motor on a on a on a thing on a machine. That's doing work that really. Nobody cares about. Like you're living in the post apocalyptic wasteland where the sound kind of a leaf blower would be music ears because it would symbolize a halcion time when we had so little to worry about also when there were relieves before we kill all the trees are skin wasn't sloughing off where we didn't have to code ourselves in sewer mud just to survive a brief run run across a sunbaked escape. It's just I just realized this. It's all an implication of suburbia people. Living in cities are used to terrible noises. And don't complain. People in the country treat live half a mile from their nearest neighbor. Right suburbia was where we'd still jam people together. But somehow gave them the expectation of that they had a bucolic privacy. Yeah Yeah and I think they're awful lot of leaf blowers being used in the cities. But you're right they just are part of the The jackhammer at seven am again Lovett. Taxi Cab Horn WanNA city. That's why you want to be on the twentieth floor of the hotel. Well we hope and pray that this catastrophe we fear may never come in in that sense. Ken Maybe we should rejoice the Doug is still out there on his roof blowing pine needles into his gutters the one of the one of the great constants of modern life.

That's Baja Mar dot com B. A. H. A. M. A. R. dot com. What do you think the universe is a friendly place? Yeah Yeah you know. The Earth is pretty cozy here. Weather's is not too many erupting volcanos everywhere. The sometimes I feel like everywhere else in the universe is a bit bit crazy you know. We got stars exploding. We got galaxies crashing into each other black holes. Seemed to be gobbling. Everything and I am so glad I take this neighborhood to live live in no black holes in the neighborhood. That was your real estate. I talked it over with my in the Asia right and especially black holes. I feel like they are this incredible destruction as source in the universe and other these machines eat everything up is anything we can do about it. I'm not sure maybe maybe we could nuke them. Doc for hamming cartoonist and creator of PhD. St Comics Hi. I'm Daniel. I may particle physicist and I don't live anywhere near a black hole. I have one in my backyard. It's a cute little baby choline. I feed it light and mass and energy does it have preferences. It is a care what you feed it. Yeah does like the you know. The high protein organic back light and matter. I don't think black holes are discriminatory. I think they'll eat anything. You need them. Well welcome to our podcast Daniel and Jorges explain the universe. It's not pet black holes Dana Lahore. He explained how to take care of your black holes there you go a guide for the everyday black hole owner black holes for dummies dummies. By Daniela here man is taken. I'm reading that Book Right now as we podcast clinically. That's the sound of me writing. But welcome to the podcast Carr's which is a production of iheartradio in which we talk about all the fun crazy amazing bonkers things in the universe. How long they will last what we can do about them? Can we understand them and try to explain them all to you. That's right all the amazing and beautiful things that produce light and illuminate this incredible universe that we live in and and also the really destructive and powerful things did strength things. Gobble them up for ever. Possibly I feel like one. Big lesson of astronomy is that things things on earth are calm and friendly and cozy like sitting on the beach in Florida but that out there in the universe is like a lot of cosmic violence. Obviously he's never been to Tiv even Ohio Florida man. That whole visit holmium. The Sun is a huge exploding nuclear bomb and galaxies easier crashing into each other and black holes. Gobbling stuff. If you like. It's less friendly out there. You know. We're lucky to live here on the Nice Cozier. Yeah Yeah it could be a lot. Worse is what you're saying. Were your expectations. And you're in paradise. Welcome to Paradise. Well it's both awe-inspiring because you have these incredible forces on cosmic scales smashing into each other and also a little terrifying you know it's sort of like sitting ringside a heavyweight match or I guess it's more like sitting ringside like a wrestling match. Do you never know if some three hundred pound dudes and right on right on the add some black holes Guinness Spillover and in in our lab. Yeah I I read this wonderful science fiction novel recently. It's called perihelion summer by Greg Egan one of my favorite authors and the premise of the book. It's not a spoiler. Is that a small black hole will enters our solar system and screws everything up. It's really fascinating to we have enough petfood for it. We feed it you you like. Maybe this guy go away. It'll be like Yuck. It came here to liberate the Black Hole. You're keeping in when you're keeping your backyard. Unjust Wade called it. Oh man that's the sequel perihelion winter no is a great book and You know it just brings to mind out there. In the universe I really powerful forces things. If they entered our neighborhood could do serious damage. Yeah and so one of those maybe. The most powerful destructive force in the universe is a black hole black holes are Kinda scary right. They are kind of scary. And it's amazing that they're both both suber destructive right so powerful nothing can avoid their pull and on the other hand. They're the product of the weakest force in the universe gravity. We've talked about on the show of the fundamental forces is the weakest by like a factor of ten to the thirtieth amazing that the most destructive thing in the universe. Chris comes from the weakest force. Wow that would be the subtitle. Be like black holes colon gravity's revenge revenge of the gravitons gravity's back and it's coming back for. Your pet is amazing to me that gravity in the end wins. And it's because it's just patient you know great everybody nobody else has done with the party and gravity still there. Yeah Anti I think it makes people wonder like are we at the whim of these incredible forces in the universe. Are we powerless to do anything. Anything about it could we if a black hole came into our solar system. Could we do something about it. Yeah this is a question that listener wrote in and I hope it wasn't a listener. That was worried about their existence. Wasn't worried like oh scientists. Can you cook up some super fancy black hole killing gun Roy. Stone wrote into US and asked us this question. Heller Daniel Hurry. I'm Roy from Florence South Carolina. I really enjoyed your pockets and hope you have many more in the future. My question is this. Is there anything the thing that can destroy a black hole or much energy. Would it take before. It is completely removed from our universe. Thanks I look forward to hearing your answer. Yeah I love this question. Because it's sort of like pays homage to the powerful forces out there in the university but also has some hope like hey humans scientists can you come up with something to protect us from the any bully of the cosmic neighborhood. Yeah my question is why does he want to know. I mean maybe he's got a black hole and getting out of hand. Beat some tips here. Maybe this wasn't such a great idea. Or maybe he knows something. We don't know I don't know for the thing or or wait. Maybe he's got a black hole is going to destroy the earth and he I he wants to figure out if has any defensive. Scoping out g defenses these answers make me feel comfortable to Royston cosmic or or you know just pure intellect wondering about this question from an academic point of view. Let's go with that that's right all right. Let's let's Curiosity is his intent. Curiosity is his intent. Exactly and it's a wonderful question to super fun question. Certainly on the podcast. We'll be tackling the question. Can We destroy a black hole. Oh Dunham thumb great question right like we think it's worth a weird question because how can you destroy a whole like. How do I need like a whole? How do you destroy it? Did you fill it with something. The whole the whole still there is just four That's interesting yeah like sometimes I have a hole in my schedule and I feel it with a meeting. Does the whole philosopher time that can answer that question for there. You go but I I think he means like how not not like you have this black hole. That's sucking things in and destroying them. Can you like do something about it. Make it go away. Yeah but you know your point goes to my mic criticism of the name black hole which I never really thought was a good name because it implies that it's an absence of things right when in in fact black holes is Super Dan's Blob. She'd be called like a black mass or a black rock or something because there's a lot of stuff in there. It's not empty. It all you wanted to name the whites heights and Blob. The whiteson would ever at the white collar on whatever coming door to winning the a noble prize for discovering the Whiteson. Whatever I wonder if you do this for settling worthy of a Nobel prize or I guess when you discover something for that could you name it whatever you want? Could you name it to Whiteson. Whatever and people would have to use his name? There's a great question First of all. I'M GONNA make a pledge that if I ever do discover something abell worthy I will call you. We'll get we'll get to chime in and Cam whatever no I think that That basically whoever names it gets to call it that but there are some experiences in history where they've been overruled like discovery and particle. Yeah the guy who discovered discover particles. He called Corpuscles. Nobody calls at Corpus Cheol now. Because it's a terrible name and so maybe just six around for few years and then eventually if it wasn't in good enough it just sorta falls out of favor measured society. Got To chime in on your your kids names that one. We'll go with whatever well you you know. Eventually your kids get to chime in and they can change their article. Don't get to do that but there's a there's another famous story in history about two different groups discovering the same particle Nicole. The same moment giving different names. And how did they decide. Or did they tell you. Hyphen amy hyphenated that that story on another podcast. That story has so many fun. Wrinkles will tell it under their podcast was hit for later dash another time precisely but I was curious how many people out there have plans to destroy. Black hole have ideas for how to destroy black hole or worried about destroying black holes so I walked around and I asked asked people what they knew about whether black holes could be destroyed. Yeah so think about it for a second before you listen to these answers. If you approach in your as you think it's possible all to destroy a black hole. What would you answer? Here's what you've had to say. I can't but thanks hawking radiation black holes just do the job themselves elves none so much manually destroy it. As far as I know we can just wait as long as we can for all of it to be admitted as hawking radiation sort of watch to fall apart exactly we can watch it fall apart. But I don't know if on command We can accelerate the process. I guess if I had to destroy yes how. How might you destroyed rival? I think still existing event. But I don't know I know because I I think has boggles there so dense In matter I feel like we just don't know that much about it yet but I mean I don't know for sure but I know I don't know I think it'd be cool I don't I know a lot of black holes but from what I do know. They're like unless so I don't just seems cool. I can't explain why it just seems very cool is okay for record your answers. Yeah this is currently account countered thesis trends in your answers. The first question is do you think it's possible to destroy a black black hole. I think maybe how would you go about. If you had to visit Blackpool coming towards earth you can save the planet. How would you destroy the way like a up? The black hole gravitational field right so if you have something that can counter that singularity that may be strive like oh I in this capable so then you can't really do anything to buckle all right. Lotta great answers. Yeah a lot of great answers and here. I went ask some experts. I asked some particle physics graduate students. What they thought? Does this count towards my thesis. That was my Grad Grad student to add to Marty stressed out. I know they have enough to do. Grad students can't really say okay. Not Their adviser but my favorite part about these answers is at everybody had something to say you know everybody was like ooh fascinating. Everybody wanted that power they wanted to know. Oh how you could destroy a black hole. Yeah I think the overall reaction I got is that people were a little surprised by this question. You know. They're like Oh. What like the the idea of destroying a black hole never even occurred to them or heard of it but as soon as they heard the idea they want to know how you think Heidi the vampire? Why never hope it would be? You know wouldn't it here. I got an idea. I should've asked people for money. Are you collecting one. Hundred dollars towards the black hole gun. Income Fund is a black hole. Any money you particle physics. The whole field is a black hole eh but you know I was surprised to buy this question. You I open my email now and I saw what you wanted to talk and I was like. Oh Wow that's a great question. I never in thought about like wanting to destroy a black hole but it does seem like a useful thing. There you go folks. This is an episode of the PODCAST. Even Hor he would listen to well ahead of ourselves here. I am and listen to all all of it. Even the parts we cut out even cartoonist. One knew how to defend the earth from block. I I mean here. All do behind the scenes the lead did to lead A. That's right that's right all right. So let's get into this question and it's super interesting. How do you destroy black hole? And we'll get into we'll recap what a black hole is and can they can think about whether they can last forever and we could destroy one but first let's take a quick break Hey Miles. It's Me Jack Right here right next to you next to me. Yeah just like a work work. Hey I wanted to join with you to tell people to tune in to a very special episode special APP yeah of TDC. The this is actually look. I know you saw the social media is at the Elliott. Oh so he said what. Are these juggernauts podcasting doing their when Mazda housed calls me up and they say miles. We know that you're a loyal Mazda owner we want to align with you Because you get it yet you know what. I'm willing to answer the call all and help. Ding Dong help people understand the power of it so we did is. We actually got to record a special episode inside the new Mazda. C X Thirty Where we talked about kind of like flow states and feeling alive and how we feel alive? What makes us feel lie? Yeah it was really doped actually record inside the car. I got depressed. A lot of buttons. Make them mad because of like please don't fumble around in here but I said I like to explore nonetheless if you actually want to check out the first ever see X.. Thirty check it out and Mazda. USA Say DOT COM SLASH IHEART. Or if you're trying to check it up I r. l.. Them pull up to the local dealership today all right. Daniel wet is the formula for destroying a black hole. Do they have an auto destruct button. mm-hmm yeah you just announce a self-destruct in one minute. I know you send one tiny x wing in to the Flaw Long Black Hole Ryan and you can blow it up that way and then use force me stay on target. Yeah the key to destroying something as is a physicist is to understand how it's made understand its life cycle would hold it together wants in life and then try to use that against it somehow. I guess that's sort of the formula for storing. Yeah yeah that's isn't that a one of the rules of World War like noth I enemy or is it a philosophy you know cost make a singularity that might destroy everything that was socrates plagiarized from socrates. Yes let's Lewis may require recap recap of what a black hole is. So you're saying it's not a whole or black it's not a whole no a black hole. Essentially runaway gravity remember gravity is a four Senate pulls everything together anything that has mass or energy gets attracted to other things that have master energy and that's what gravity is and that's would holds us onto the earth and that's what keeps the earth going around the sun and that's squeezes the sun so that fusion starts it's the weakest force in in the universe but you get enough stuff together and he can be quite powerful right. It's Kinda like love right. It's it's the underdog in this crazy universe but at the end it holds everything together. I thought the lesson there is that loves the most powerful force in university and overcome gravity. There you go so can love. Just wear black holes at I think the interstellar your podcast Matthew Yeah remember interstellar not a documentary people. Okay fiction. That was wasn't it. Yes that's theanswer. In every Hollywood movie love is the most powerful force of his Yep Yep even in avengers arrival also love wins out in the end basically weekly all about low write. Basically love is what screenwriters. Good too when they don't know how to get out of the physics in a plot that's right because physics has not yet discovered a fundamental memento force that aligns with love gravity electromagnetism. We've got the weak force the strong I love We don't really understand it. You what would you call the quantum particle for love off the coupon the Cuban. I see what you did there but anyway so that's what a black hole is gravity. E-eh just like the gravity that keeps this planet together. An US annette. But if you take that gravity to an extreme crammed a lot of stuff held together by gravity already in a small amount of space. That's right because gravity never gives up it just keeps pulling and pulling and pulling and if you have enough stuff if he big enough blob eventually. Gravity gets so crazy that it pulls it into a dense enough object that there's so much gravity that it basically bends space ace because remember gravity is not just this force that pulls stuff together gravity Benz the shape of space which is why it changes the direction that things move so black hole as mm spaces bench so much that basically pops off from the universe and becomes self contained. Nothing can go out of it. All the paths inside their lead. Closer to at the center of the black hole is no way out of it anymore right but it doesn't close itself off completely because you can still get into it right you can still go into local can you. Yeah it's like a trap. Yeah yeah maybe should be called a black trap instead of will black trap here but this is funny discontinuity because it's like a one way wall in space now and it's not like if if you ran really fast or if you pushed really hard you can get out. There is no path out. No matter how fast you go like photons inside a black hole. There's still moving at speed of light. They're just moving towards the center new direction. They can go in to get out right. What if I really strong rope and I lower you in like? It's the strongest rope in the universe. Yes and I lower you and can I pull you out. No you can't end. Actually people have done all these sort of crazy thought. Experiments like super strong ropes. Lowering people aim. What would it look like Once you cross the event Horizon Essentially that rope is broken Broke in. Oh because not even like the attraction between the molecules of the precisely of the rope can haul keep it together. Yeah a lot of these thought. Experiments try to cheat. You have these rules. Nothing can come outside side of the event horizon but then you add like oh a super strong rope. That can't be broken. That basically breaks that rule that nothing can come out of the event Horizon Music superstar rope implies that you could pull hole on the molecules that are inside the event horizon from the ones that are on the outside of the event horizon. And you can't right but if I use wonder woman's Lasso uh-huh again fictional universe you can do anything in our actual universe. None of that works but the cool thing about black holes said they just keep going they gobble stuff often the gobble stuff and the size of the black hole depends on the amount of stuff inside it so as it eat stuff it gets bigger than as it gets bigger. It can eat more stuff and you see where this goes ghost. Yeah let's talk about the life cycle of black hole right like when a black holes form it's really small. It's a little BLOB. Then as eats more things it just grows rose and it doesn't peak. I guess it's one directional just keeps going bigger and bigger and bigger kind of like your career and never peaks. It just is keeps going precisely end black holes form when stars. Are there really big when they collapsed when they done burning their fuel and they can't resist gravitational pressure sure they form sometimes at the centers of galaxies and those were the biggest ones are and black holes. Just eat the stuff around just get bigger and bigger. They can even eat other black. Kohl's seen that happen. Wow and and they can get really big. There is some black holes that are like millions of times bigger than the massive dike our sun for example the ones at the centers of galaxies are enormous their millions of solar masses and. Nobody knows how they got that big. Like if you just take a bunch into stars and form a galaxy then you get a black hole. The center in the black hole grows and grows but doesn't growth that much so we're still trying to understand like how black holes at the centers of galaxies got so darn big our models. Don't explain it but you know we have these ideas like galaxies combine sometimes galaxies bang into each other and then the black holes at the center. Eat each other and become one mega black hole and so there's some fun ideas thereby how you can make super big black holes by having them eat other super big black holes. Wow Doc I mean basically. There's no limit to their size right. And I as far as we know it's not like Like a star that grows and gets brighter but at some point it it starts rights to run out of fuel and dams and becomes somebody else blackhall as far as we know just keeps on going forever tried if you keep feeding a black hole it will keep growing doing that book. I don't know if you ever read that book to your kids where they get a little pet fish and the guy. The fish store says don't feed it too much and you know why not take the too much and it gets bigger and bigger and bigger and never stops growing. You know Black holes or like that you need to keep feeding them they will keep growing. There's no theoretical limit. Nothing things says you can't have a black hole of the galaxy or the size of the cluster of galaxies reason. Why not at some point? It doesn't collapse base you now. I'm just thinking bigger and blacker whole I don't know like it detaches from our universe and goes off into another universe or something. I don't know like it doesn't it at pinpoint a collapse or becomes a theoretical impossibility. No there's no limit. Their black holes grow and grow and grow you keep feeding them. It will keep growing growing. I guess the question is why isn't the whole universe then just a black hole right now like why haven't had hasn't it all come together until big giant black hole. Yeah that's a great question Two answers to that one is things might turn into a black hole eventually. Dude one of the reason that we're not in a black hole yet is basically rotation like they're same reason that the earth goes around the sun instead of plummeting into it are stars going around the black hole the center it's not plummeting into it because we're orbiting and that rotation keeps us from falling in I see we're in the flush part of the giant toilet toilet flush universe. I like to think that it's the cosmic suburbs and urban center toilet flushing suburbs. We're flushing toilets in the suburbs and the other reason is a galaxy super far apart like why doesn't our galaxy just get gobbled up by black holes and other galaxies. Galaxies are crazy far apart and dark energy is pushing them. Further and further apart deep future the universe might be that all these galaxies eventually collapsed into into their own individual super mammoth black hole but then those black holes won't merge at dark energies keeping them apart Yeah that's interesting. I guess I hadn't thought about it before because our our son is kind of like a black hole it is like a giant source of gravity. And if you think about it we we. Don't get sucked right into it. We are like in an equilibrium with our son and the rest of the solar system. Yeah we did a whole podcast episode about like what would happen if you replaced the Sun with a black hole same mass and the answer is it would get darker but we would keep orbiting. Because I'm you till just have the gravity of the black hole pulling on the earth and it pulls on there at the same way any other object of that mass does black holes. Don't have a special power to suck you in. They just have gravity resist gravity by rotating running really fast basically in the sideways direction. Yeah so go so. The Earth is is getting pulled on by the sun but it keeps missing right and it misses again. Mrs Again is constantly falling towards the Sun and missing right right. It's like a lasso like the wonder woman to you all right. Let's have a mini podcast. Episode Inside is about wonder woman out of your sister. Let's move on all right. Well I guess the question question is does that mean the black holes last forever you know. Can they keep going and technically. They'll outlast everything else in the universe. The universe the venture any just be black holes. That's a great question and you know as I said before. If you keep feeding a black hole it will keep growing and growing and growing but another question is what what happens if a black hole stops being fed CEO like a black hole in the middle of space and nobody feeds it anymore. You know you go on vacation. You don't feed that black hole in your backyard with was it lasts forever or will eventually fall apart. I see you starved. Black Hole does it eventually wither die. Yeah and it. Turns sowed that black holes. Not actually black there's a big give off the tiniest little glow and that glow means they're giving away energy so if you don't feed it eventually that glow will leak out all the energy the black hole and it will evaporate. Yeah this is a Stephen Hawking radiation right. It's IT'S A. He came up with this idea. That black holes are actually leaking like. They're not Airtight he was the first one to think about black holes from a thermodynamic point one of you because from my point of view of thermodynamics. Everything in the universe has a temperature and everything that has temperature glows and it gives off radiation depending lean on that temperature. It's called black body radiation. We can do hold their podcast about it so his question was like what is the temperature of a black hole. If it's not zero it must irradiating and if it's radiating where's that coming from and that was the you know a year is life figuring that out. While imagine the moment he thought of that question like I wonder what the temperature of a black hole is. It's actually pretty well documented he was on a trip. I think in Moscow and a couple of Soviet scientists asked him that question. They're like hey what do you think is the temperature of a black hole. We think of might not be zero and this moment. And he's like Oh my gosh. And they're like often scribbled his notebooks for a year and figured it out this. This is something I never quite understood about hawking radiation so the idea is that at the very border of a black hole the border of the event horizon or or like the you know the point where nothing can escape Eh. The idea is that the universe creates a particle. They're out of nothingness and it splits off right. That's the idea like one half goes out when have goes then and somehow we call that. Evaporation can you explain a little bit for me. Yeah so this is a tricky concept and formally it comes from requiring that black holes have temperature and then try to figure out what the temperature is an and finding a way to make that consistent for different observers moving at different speeds. It's very complicated. And then this these sort of pseudoscience hand wavy explanation that you often hear about hawking radiation and that's that that's the one I just and it doesn't quite perfectly makes sense but it's a fine would think about it. So there's an introduction to the topic right and the idea is you have a little blob. The space just outside the event horizon not inside or anything. That's inside the horizon will never leave. You have as blobs base just just outside. And then you have this gravitational force from the black holes incredible gravitational power and the blackface boroughs a little bit of that energy and and it gives it a fluctuation and turns it into a particle okay. So you're you're getting like a boost of energy from this gravitational field that boost turns you into a particle particle splits. Let's into two other particles matter. One of them falls into the black hole and by conservation momentum. The other one has to go the other direction so it goes away from the black hole right and so it escapes and so what you have is basically a blob of energy that originally was inside the black hole because it came from the gravitational field of the black hole and that energy is now leaving with this particle. That's gone right. And so the the mass of the black hole essentially comes from its energy and so it has to give up some energy energy to boost away this other new particle than it's lost. Some of its mass. Oh I see it loses the energy when it creates this particle. Yeah it's energy gets used to to create this article and then loses one of it and doesn't come back remember that the mass of an object equals MC squared. That tells you that the mass of an object comes from it's it's stored internal energy and so gives up some of its energy than it loses a mass and so it's not like something that was inside. The event horizon actually escaped but some of the stolen some of the energy from the black hole. OAC It's about the one that got away. Not they're not about the when they went into the back. All the love story again. uh-huh knows it's a heartbreaking story here because they broke up and they they never got back together. That's sort of a way to think about how a black whole could lose some of its energy which is another way to think about you know warm objects radiating I black body. Radiation shouldn't be something weird in particle physics. He's just like it'd have something hot on your stove top. It glows right. He gives off energy so anything has a temperature is glowing diffusing energy out so the ideas will black hole a lot of energy. So why don't they lose some of that also into the outside universe and this is like a little picture of how microscopically that might happen right. And so the idea that the black hole is at the very surface kind of emitting light or photons and that energy that's going away from the black hole which means that eventually it's like a candle eventually maybe burn out. Yeah it's not just light. It can give off any kind of particle hawking. Radiation can produce positron electrons or Mules Antonsson. Actually one of the cool things about black holes that we might be making it. Sern is if you make a tiny little black hole at sern. Evaporate Super Quickly and in low vapor into every kind particle. That's out there. Through Hawking radiation so the signature of a black hole in a collider. Is this like crazy. Spray the huge variety of particles. Nothing else makes that which is why black holes and collider's are so fascinating to look for All right well I guess they demand lesson is that black holes. Don't live forever that's right but it's the very very slow process. You have some enormous black hole. This is A. It's pretty black. So it's leaking tiny tiny bit of energy all right. Let's get into. How slow are black holes dying on their own house slow? They're getting snuffed out and also if we needed to accelerate the process. Could we actually do something thing to destroy a black hole but first let's take a quick break. Hey everybody we want you to know that stuff you should know is brought to you by Hulu. That's right I love Hulu. I used Hulu. That's honest and you know it with the largest streaming library full of your favorite reality. TV Shows Hulu just happens to be the home for reality. TV's biggest fans. Yeah biggest fans hands of say all the drama sure or biggest fans of all the tears who doesn't love those tears tears. It tastes delicious and all the heartbreak in my all right sure and all the competition. Who are we kidding? This is reality. TV Yep so start your free trial. That's right we said free trial L.. Today you can learn more you can learn everything you need to know really at Hulu Dot Com. That's right free trial today at H. U. L. U. DOT COM Daniel black holes evaporate slowly. Meaning they give a little bit of light and energy to sitting there if you don't don't feed them which means that eventually black hole sort of shrink down into nothingness basically right. That's right if you have a black hole pet and you're going on a long long vacation you do need to rein somebody to feed it. Otherwise you will not be a runaway. Prizes and destroy Earth is yes so depending inning on your motivations they're evil villain or savior make your decision but it takes a very long time if you had a black hole like the mass of the sun and we'd never seen a black hole l.. As small as the sun the smallest black hole we've ever seen as many times the size of the sun but even the black hole with a mass of the sun with TC ten to the sixty the seven years to evaporate. Oh what ten to. Is there a name for a number that big ten because like the age of the Universe is is not that long or the size of the is not that big no the universe member ages in billions and billions. So it's like ten to ten right because a billion is tend to the nine and the universe is thirteen point eight billion years old so we're like ten to the ten years into the universe. This is tend to the fifty seven in times as long cheese so basically they live forever. 'cause that sounds crazy to think about being still alive then or the universe what might look like at that point yet but remember we have no idea what the timescale for the universe is like you know a hundred hundred thousand years into the universe lasting billions of years might seem crazy and so you know only ten billion years into the universe maybe this is still a flash in the universe will last for ten to the one hundred years we just don't know gay maddening. Some aliens that ten year ten to the one hundred quick. Hey remember back then when there were l.. He's black holes everywhere. I used to listen to this podcast back. Then what happened to those guys. These the evaporated like everything else it's called talking cancellation of your. But the more math of the black hole the longer it takes so if you have a smaller black hole wrap evaporate more quickly which is why for example black holes. We make it sern if we do make them which super tiny like the massacre Proton would evaporate super quickly even like a black hole. It's like two hundred tons of stuff we only take about one second to evaporate. Wow that's amazing so if you take two hundred thirty tonnes and make a black colby massive but it would only last one sec. Yeah it would evaporate away in just a second okay. So the thing that black holes need to do to survive is to eat the the bigger they get the longer they will last because the slower they will evaporate all right so I did. Two black holes don't last forever but they last a a very long time practically forever and so the question now is Daniel. If a black hole came towards us and threatened the existence of our solar system and our way of life. Could we destroy a black hole. Then what can we do to accelerate the destruction of a black hole. It's pretty tough I got three ideas he is. I'm not sure any of them are going to work. These are your ideas or like the scientific community or are you saying. I don't speak for the vitamin the royal. We or is this the Daniela Daniela Basement. Ideas I gathered together all the ideas that are out there and I speak for for scientists. I'm wearing a white lab coat. I'm on the news. Here are the best ideas from good. The first idea is a bad idea. Sort of the Bruce Willis of ideas and that's Let's get right. We got these powerful weapons every time something comes to endanger change the earth in movies. At least they dislike. Shoot up new. Try to blow it up right like break. It up like Disa- disrupted because he is the black hole comes from its densities. If you could somehow like cracking in half then maybe you could weaken its power right you. Well I guess technically right like if you take a black hole and split it in middle and separated separated the two Has It would dissipate the black hole right with like because it would go down eventually and also it depends exactly Liane the structure of the matter inside the black hole embiid if general relativity is correct and black holes have a singularity inside them then splitting them in half just makes to who smaller black holes. So I say you can't actually get rid of the Black Holiness but if this distribution of stuff and you can break it in half and you can lower the density enough of if quantum mechanics is right then has to be distributed. You could lower the density enough. Maybe you could stop it from being a black hole all right so then. Is it possible to break. Went up in blow it up. No it's still possible and it would backfire dramatically in act three of the screenplay because you're basically just throwing fuel on the fire scene Black Hole is not just a collection of mass its energy at the mad. The the mass in the black hole comes from its energy so you just pour more energy into a like a nuclear bomb. Tom Has a lot of energy. It just makes it stronger. Oh man it's like It's like that super villain. That takes all your punches and transporting into energy. That tissue you back with is exactly like that. It's like you know you got a pilot glue and you're pouring more glue. So I ah even if I throw a giant bomb explodes inside the event horizon. It wouldn't help break things apart. No just make it more dense and remember nothing can lead the event horizon so even if it blows up inside the event horizon is still just going to be a exploding nuclear weapon inside the event Horizon Making the mass the black hole larger right. They won't blow it up. Nothing can leave and so it makes it more intense even if you threw a star into a black hole right which is basically a huge bomb. Oh Okay Hold Ellen. Somebody told Bruce Willis to. We're canceling the plan where you're saying who's agents not going to be happy with. It is basically nothing no matter or energy can break it up because it's already a condense collection of matter and energy even thought you know what if you through like another black hole into it but this time it's an anti matter black shirt like an anti a black hole made out of entire. We're you fed of as a little kid with anti matter right. Yeah because Matt anti-matter both matter and so in principle you could make a black hole out out of anti-matter but again it's just more energy so you throw in and black hole into a matter black hole and you're just going to pour more energy into it. It's GonNa make a stronger blackhall matter what kind of matter you put into it man. This is giving me nightmares here. Let's is making me really uncomfortable for some reason like the like like villain. You can't stop BERTA so that's a bad idea to try to blow it up to give him more energy or what are some of the other ideas all right so there are some other ideas involve trying to make the black hole spin black holes are dense blobs of stuff right but some of them we think are are spinning. Not necessarily. They don't have to spend but some of them can spin. You mean inside whatever's happening inside it has some sort of rotational the moment precisely because England can't go away and so something falls into a black hole and it was originally spinning a rounded. It's still spinning around the center of mass when it goes inside inside the event horizon so the overall rotation the black hole reflects the overall rotation of the stuff originally that's why like the solar system is still spinning because angular momentum from the initial l.. Gas Cloud is still here so if our solar system eventually becomes a black hole it will be spinning while. But we don't know what's going on inside the event horizon though. Do we know for sure that it can still keep spinning energy. We don't know for sure but we're pretty sure that angular momentum is conserved in our universe. So it's a pretty fair assumption and the fascinating thing is that the size of the black hole depend not just on the mass of the stuff inside of it but also on this rate of spin and the faster the black hole spinning dinning the smaller the event horizon. Oh really yeah so the idea is maybe you could like shrink. The event horizon by making the black hole over-spin and you can drop stuff into it. That has a really high spin ray like goo going really fast. Almost tange into the event horizon right. Like if you want. If you're pushing someone on the mirror go rhino and make them go faster. You can push on the edge you could you could over spin it. Maybe so if we take all those spinning toys that kids were playing with is a couple of years ago you know the ones that would into ball. Bearings fidget spinner saved spinners. That were huge fad. And you tossing. Villa listen to Bruce Willis to deliver. Let's get back on the ship. We have a new idea that we're you'd be easing but that's basically yes I mean you saying if you give the throw a bunch of stuff that has a lot of spin and in my shrink the the black hole yeah and this crazy is theoretical idea. Nobody knows what it would actually work. But if you did that you might be thinking but the mass is still there right. Wouldn't you still. We'll have a singularity even if it's spinning answer is yes potentially take a black hole and turn it into what we call naked singularity which is a singularity without basically soclean event horizon around it. Nobody knows what that would look like what it would be like. And if he would be any better or worse than having a black hole well well having a naked anything You know makes things more play. Yeah yeah that's why that's why paramount interested in their screenplay that's that's a spoof. Version of the the Bruce Willis movie negative. Can you guys think nobody knows if it would work. And nobody knows if it'd be better worse than just suffering through the destruction the original black hole but in theory might be possible to over spin the black hole and turn into okay. But we don't know that might be better or worse we don't know yet exactly but technically you hire me to destroy your black hole and then I turned into a naked singularity. I'M GONNA be invoicing you all right and I am sure we'll gladly pay that if restoring alive from your naked singularity and then the last idea actually came from a listener center really asking a question and you had another listener. Answer the question. Yeah another listener spontaneously wrote in with an idea for how to destroy Tori black holes and wanted to know if it would work and I thought Oh. I'm trying to figure out how we could destroy. Borough that's suspicious. I feel like guys are two people are playing you here Daniel. Maybe they're just a different. One is an alter ego the other one. When is the anti black hole version of no a James Casteel from Indiana? He wrote in asking about dark energy. Remember dark energy is expanding space and so it's essentially diluting. Everything so he wanted to know is dark energy happening inside black holes and if so could it like expand the space inside a black hole enough to basically shrink the density so you no longer have a black hole clever like eat the black hole from the inside out remember a black Hole Ada star from an inside outside. There's like SORTA turn it down strategy back self. Yeah like blow it up from the inside through space itself. Yeah exactly so great idea James and when we do want to build a black hole gun you are definitely invited to be on the task he can pull the trigger. You press the big red but But is is there something to this idea. Could you make dark energy gun or ray or bomb to expand the space inside inside of a black hole while they're a lot of problems with this idea. number one is. We don't understand dark. Energy is like at all. We think it's some property of space when you have various configurations of matter in the Universe it causes space to expand. But it's it's very actually very very weak. It's not very powerful at all. It only adds up to a big effect because space is so huge. The dark energy for example plays no role in the structure of our solar system because the gravity of our solar system is powerful enough to overcome become dark energy and so when it comes to a black hole dark energy is basically negligible right as new effect at all. Yeah but it is everywhere like love. Isn't it it's everywhere like like love but we don't actually know if there is dark energy inside a black hole because we don't know what dark energy is if it's a property of space itself then yeah there's some effect from dark energy inside a black hole but we don't know it. means the expansion of space anyways it would be much weaker than the gravity of the black hole together. dark energy is just one factor and to answer whether space is expanding after fold in dark energy to fold in the matter and radiation density of the universe than you crank it through general relativity the equations to discover whether or not you're getting expansion reason there's expansion out there in space is because dark energy is the only thing out there but if you have matter and energy like in a black hole all then you're not gonNA get expansion right but I guess the question is is the idea is that you know maybe one day we'll understand what dark energy is. Maybe one day we might be able to harness it or concentrated you know like if there is something out there in space in the universe. I can expand space. Maybe that's one way to kill by callers was like if we understand. Maybe we could make something that will expand the space inside of a black hole I lost count. Of How many maybes yes. We can build a dark energy gun. Give it to Bruce Willis then yeah the plans rock-solid which makes the point you make is reasonable all right is that there is something that can balanced gravity. We described earlier black holes or a runaway process because gravity takes over and eventually Wins because it's always attractive practive but you're right. We do know that there is something about gravity that can be repulsive and that's dark energy and so eventually if we understand it we might be able to manipulate it and cause a black Kohl's to fall apart from the inside using dark energy but there's a lot of maybes between now and then right all right so it sounds like our best ideas are fidget spinners. uh-huh Magical Unicorn is our base idea magical. Uniforms is definitely a good idea. Automated Magical Unicorn. Being written by Bruce Willis in love to save the universe. Welcome to our pitch. Thank thank you for coming to our pitch. We'll take those billions of dollars now. Thank you very true. We want a big advance. We're not delivering the script until the the end of the universe. All right. Well I guess I mean to answer the question. Can we story a black hole. It said it sounds like maybe not I mean it sounds like we have some wild called ideas but so far they seem like pretty inevitable part of the universe that will basically be around here forever and maybe we never go away. Yeah if I had to bet. On the most likely fate of the universe it would be a bunch of galaxies that collapsed into black holes separated by vast distances Mrs so it's pretty dark and bleak version of the future. Well we hope dead stimulated some thinking out there in you guys about what black holes are in whether they'll be around for a very long time or whether we could destroy one if we had the need to and whether or not it was a good idea to start a little black hole pet in your backyard. That's right and just in case. Save those fidget spinners. They might handy later and anybody out there with Magical Unicorn please get in touch. Yeah so this is a great question question and so if you guys have a question out there please send it to us. What's the email address Daniel questions at Daniel and horray dot com?

Merry Christmas everyone listening on I receive your well wishes. I hope you're listening to this. The day after Christmas delayed like your listen because Christmas Day not a time to be listening to money podcast right. Sometimes you need to get out of the house. You're you WANNA take a break from the family. Go on a nice brisk walk fresh air. Okay actually sounds really good at eight. PM like these guitar. But of course we're releasing a best Christmas Day like we need some time off to but we're this episode that were re-releasing. We talked about money your brain buying happiness which by the way I think that specific the civic title is one of our best titles. Yeah money your brain and buying happiness feels like that your brain on drugs kind of thing with the fried eggs right. I'm I'm particularly fascinated by behavioral finance and kind of what makes us tick and what makes us do what we do. I think sometimes when we understand kind of what's happening beneath the surface when it comes to the actions Sion's that are causing us to delay saving to actually accrue debt to buy more stuff just that awareness can helpless then begin to curb some some of those habits that have become ingrained in that are leading us down a path of handling our finances poorly so yeah. I really enjoyed this episode and I think it's definitely worthy of a replay here. Certainly well we we dive into Donna adaptation as well in this episode part of that is that there's basically this sort of baseline happiness that we have regardless. If good things or bad things has happened to us and I think this is timely. As well with being Christmas that sometimes folks get bummed out around the holidays or right after the holidays and I think sometimes people we'll put a lot of stock into just the parties and the presence and all of that and there's this high whether it be emotional or whatever you have going on and then a few days later that's not there and you're like oh all that excitement is kind of gone. You never see that with children after opening a crash like oh my gosh I just had the best time of my life and now what do you think sucks. It's all over but like you said the the awareness of it right. I think in this way it's good to be aware that as well because sometimes folks do struggle with that and certainly there's a lot of reasons that folks ideal without around the holidays but this might be one of them and keep that in mind when it comes to spending and how that can influence you know your mood and even and beyond your mood so yeah. That's why we're replaying this episode Joel. You mentioned like kids being bummed out or something like that after the holidays. Did you ever have a gift that you didn't receive as a kid or even as an adult where you're totally sad about because you didn't see that one gift I'm sure there was like honestly I can't think of anything at the time and it's not because I always got everything I wanted. That certainly wasn't the case. Sure Joel Christmas. Were pretty chill around our house. But I specifically remember I think my biggest Christmas letdown. I remember the hardest Christmas ever and because my dad had to work on Christmas Day and remember like sitting around our whole fan my mom my two sisters and we were counting down the minutes until my dad. Dad got home because I think I think probably often do gifts until he got home exactly. Yeah so we're like staring at the presents under the tree and we couldn't unwrap and you're like oh my gosh this yeah. It was like two thirty minutes after noon before we could actually get cracking so I think that was probably the hardest Christmas for me but also you know what that was probably a really good lesson for me to learn to that you wake up and you gotta wait for everybody. You GotTa wait for your fan so it was hard but looking back I kind of look back on it with fondness too. Well there you go my parents recount the story of me as a little kid where I I had of course as a little kid. Plenty of amazing fantastic gifts but you know what I didn't receive hungry hungry hippos as a little kid. I was so bummed because I had my heart set on that for whatever reason then. My parents asked me where you happy did. Did you have a good Christmas. And I kind of looked at them and just said but I didn't get my hungry hungry. We Hippos just imagine young Matt so disappointed you ungrateful Little Pun. Well hopefully. I'm sure we're going to experience that with our kids some day whereas there's your totally unhappy with how it goes down but those are learning experiences for all of us and and again ultimately were not satisfied by the more we accrue and I think this episode points in that direction. There's some really good information here and it was a fun one to create some really excited to release us one on Christmas Day Matt. Hope you enjoy yours with your family my friend and and Yeah for everybody out there. Merry Christmas happy holidays. Happy Hannukah whatever you celebrate. We're glad you listen to the show. And we're thankful you're part of our podcast community. Yes that is right eight-man so without further ado. Here's that episode. Welcome to how the money I'm Joel. I'm Matt Today. We're discussing money your brain and buying happiness penis Joel. What's up buddy? Hey Man I wanted to mention I asked you how you're doing but then I just immediately moved on you. Don't care about me it hurts. How are you doing? I'm fantastic dude. I really am a Slight cold I feel like I might have a touch of the sniffles. Hope people out there. Don't notice it too bad but I feel excellent other than that. You look excellent. Thank you my friend so a couple of episodes ago. I mentioned how my credit score got dinged because I got confused when it came to paying a payment through a credit union because they had a Janke almost non-functioning website which we did say is one of the biggest downfalls to doing business credit huge huge downside so many positives but there is the fact that they're running on Microsoft dos weather systems. Yeah it really is like Geo cities but for banking but you mentioned at the end of that little piece at the end of that segment you kind of suggested for me to give credit call and then a couple of days. After that I thought man I really should give them a call like man that got Joel. He's he says smart. I didn't because I was able to quickly after that applied for another credit card because the credit card sign up bonuses yet again I talk about that too much and I got it so I didn't I was like who cares right but just the principle of it and I kind of wanted to see. How easy was it was so easy? I called up up my credit union and yeah man I just told them straight up truth I said Hey I got a little sloppy This is my first time working with you guys and notice. I had a delinquent payment. I'll talk milady super nice and said all right right now. I'm going to go ahead and send you a letter and you just take a look at that and basically it was a letter for speeding. Something that was incorrectly reported on your credit report port right but the problem is is that it was correctly reported and so I told her that I was just like hey I said hey. Nothing was done properly or incorrectly. I'm just looking for forgiveness like some mercy and she totally heard me. It was just like you know what. Let me see what I can do. She's stuck me on hold. How's the hold music? Oh I will say it wasn't like the big bank in cold music where it's like the Yes because they couldn't afford that John But somebody else got some Bryan Adams Rolling Tobacco summer sixty nine but they got somebody else do it within five minutes. They they were like yeah. We can take care of that for you and I was like seriously. Don't even worry about filling out the letter and I ask is there is some sort of confirmation number and there's well we'll send you an email once we once the email out to the three credit agencies to the three credit bureaus. Yeah we'll confirm that and send that TV email. And then Tim later. I got that email as well so twenty minutes later from start to finish. I had that lifted off my credit report. I'M GONNA boom shock locker buddy. Yeah so I'm doing my best. NBA Per station. So I want to share that because I wanted folks to know how crazy easy it was to just ask for forgiveness in this case and specifically working with the Credit Union. We kind of knocked them last time. How so they just don't have a slick of an interface in how their controls it's just not very user friendly I guess but they make up for it and real human interaction and because of that I still one hundred percent and happy with that credit? Union Man Yeah. That's awesome man. I thank you for challenging me by the way. Of course yeah. I love that because I feel like most of the time people resign themselves to whatever it is in their life whether it's paying too much for cable or whether it is something happens that they forgot about and they're like well I guess that's the system and I got to pay the price and I think most of the time right. That is the system but you can make a request. You can make a phone call. You can ask for forgiveness. This and the same thing has happened to me before. Let's say we paid the credit card bill of two days late. I feel like every time that has happened. which is superior like once every three or four years that happens and then I called the credit card company and they waived the late fee and they waived the interest charges? And that's just one of the things that most people don't think to ask. They just say a well. I guess that's what happens. Dang it this is kind of how it is and the move on with life you know. It sounded like a couple of weeks ago when we talked about that. You're thinking all right. Well I guess it's fine. It's not that big of a deal. Glad you made the call because you found something out and he found out that like you can do it and most people. Most of the Times companies will respond positively. If you you just something small and by the way especially with your local credit union that's GonNa say especially with a local credit union company. That actually cares about you because to be honest if that was wells Fargo Wells Fargo not so much another one that happened in all likelihood so yeah I love that and sometimes you ask all right matt. I wanted to mention to you the other day I was at Costco. That happens every other week. Usually for me and they got all the Christmas toys and stuff like that out and I noticed that they're selling smart watches for kids and it just seemed like the craziest creepiest thing to me. And I don't really have much to say about it except for the fact that what are we doing to our kids kids. How should we be thinking about how our kids are on screens? How they interact with technology? I just thought that having smartwatch. That's buzzing on a kid's arm arm and I don't know exactly what they're intended for specifically but it just seemed like to me as a two guys who we try to be conscious about how much we use technology gene then how much our kids do too right. Like I don't know about you but my cats are not allowed to use smartphones or ipads ever ever. I just don't see that as good for them right now in their developmental cycles. Exactly but just to see that it's becoming a new thing and the kids for Christmas are GonNa get a smartwatch. And they'll be on their technology and attached to text messaging and twitter and instagram. Whatever even more on their wrist? I don't know it just seemed a little right. Yeah well I was GONNA ask. How did you know that they were meant for kids? Because of all the colors and yeah yes the colors will. It's the section there in so I think because it was just colorful all like I can see you one of those like Oh man I love that thing saying I do. I do like colorful stuff and so yeah but no it was totally labeled as a kid. SMART RIDE I didn't even I don't even remember how much it was or I don't know how many functions they perform form. I just thought that that trend overall turned in general. Just a little and that's a great. There was an article recently on New York Times article going around about kids and screens like whether it be smartphones or tablets that I thought that was super enlightening. Yeah right and so. They're talking about how it used to be where one tablet per kid was like a huge selling point so parents would see that and think. Oh this is the school system I want to be in our. This is the class that I want my kid in that sort of thing. They saw it as an advantage. But it was crazy without article is highlighting highlighting. How the sort of more knowledgeable folks in Silicon Valley specifically that had created the technology and behind the programming and the ones who were in charge of of making it addicting and satisfying to be on your phone to hit the refresh words like a slot machine right? They're the ones who are not allowing their kids to be on tablets omelettes. They're the ones who are pushing for reform within the school systems to not have any sort of technology to force kids to talk to each other. Yeah added to respond to their teachers thing to where Steve Jobs was kind of the first person where that came up where he was asked about his kid playing on an ipad back in the a day and he said what are you talking about. I would never let my kid things. And that's kind of the general trend in Silicon Valley. Is that people that create this technology to keep us addicted. They're they're not letting their kids play on. Are you crazy. Yeah their own kids play fortnight or download those apps because they know what it does and it turns how it turns this into zombies and so I thought that was really enlightening article just from the standpoint that the people who create these technologies aren't letting their own offspring participate and for me. I mean it makes me think twice about how much I let my kids engaged with those things. I don't want them to know what an APP is yet. You know when just in kindergarten and I want them to be blissfully ignorant for quite a while to come in. I thought the kids smart watches was like this opposite point where we're slow man. Yeah we're technology acknowledging our kids to death at the same time so interesting stuff. Yeah and interestingly. We're GONNA we'll kind of get towards some of that at the end of this episode but we talk about. We're talking about happiness to a certain extent and that's just a distraction. The technology the screens the games the APPS all like all of that are distractions and there are things that promise happiness and and Yeah by the end of this episode. I think we'll get to some of the things that actually do provide happiness. Now you can actually buy it but if you could you would buy a beer because beer your makes you happy. And let's tell everyone were drinking right now so our buddy Andrew donated a beer for the show that he brought back from Chicago. It is Mars Brewing Mars ars community brewing. Oh Yeah Mangueira flux. And this is a berliner vice with mangoes and Brett so we will tell you more about this magnificent mango beer here at the end of the show our menu and kickoff. So let's get into this money your brain and buying happiness and you kind of just alluded to it. Buying new things makes us happy right all way. Yeah sure for a minute. There's a concept that we really want to broach today on the show and it's called Dhani adaptation or the head-on a treadmill and I feel like this concept can help us frame an understanding of what buying happiness looks like well it helps us understand the effects of consumption. Howie how he by and it kind of helps us come to grips with some of the potentially unhealthy cycles that we have with spending assuming that it will move the needle on our path to happiness and so I think delving bringing to an understanding of this concept will help us do better at thinking about our spending and then prioritizing saving for the future at the same time so let's go ahead and define it head-on adaptation tation is the tendency of humans to quickly return to a pretty stable level of happiness despite major positive or negative events or life changes ages and also to the head on adaptation? If you want to think about the head on a treadmill as like you're moving forward like it seems like you're making progress like you're moving towards happiness happiness but when in fact you're stationary like you're not moving anywhere like in in relation to the things that you were around. You're not moving anywhere. Even though you're putting forth effort to move forward you're doing all that in order to stay in the same place and we're going to sort of relate that to spending and happiness oftentimes that's when you do hear about head on adaptation tation that's specifically in regards to how we register our own happiness and and the things that we do to get there and so for example if you make more money your expectations or or your desires for things or whatever it is that you like those also rise the rise in tandem with you making more money and so because of that you have the same amount of happiness happiness right. There's no net gain. There's no gain in happiness. You're you're sort of stuck there and it's also important to keep in mind too that this is sort of a theory right like this isn't necessarily like a law but it's something that scientists and researchers have seen but you know you can't really really prove it but there have been a few studies on it that I feel like help frame this concept for us and and it's not certainly not like an apple falling on your head from a tree it's not like Newtonian in that way but gravity. Yeah it's it's not it's not one hundred percent biological science sir. Anything by it certainly makes sense. I feel like from a human experience standpoint and it also makes sense you based on some of these studies that have been performed formed. And we'll get into some of those a little bit later on too but I don't know about you matt just literally from human experience standpoint. I have often found myself in the past buying something thinking thinking that it was going to satisfy a need or that it was a neat. Little was legitimate. Need right then and there for me making that purchase thinking it would move the needle and ultimately I forget that I even ordered it and then shows up on my doorstep and I'm like Oh yeah I ordered and then I try that item of clothing on or I use that item. Whatever it was or I eat that piece of food whatever shift and I completely forget about it pretty soon after the fact right so in the end it didn't really move the needle on my happiness levels through to any meaningful degree? Although there were little bursts where I thought it would sort of like a sugar rush. That's right yeah exactly. Yeah I specifically remember that more poignantly as a kid. I can remember if I've got my own money or if I had convinced my parents to buy me. This slingshot like a serious Syria. slingshot like it had a extra bar that one of your forearms to stabilize it and a hat like a site on it. It was like crossbow. Part slingshot was this. Your Red Ryder. Bb Gun is SORTA. I sort of that moment but I was so stoked about that thing in house is going to be able to like walk through the woods and start shooting squirrels exactly and the frigging ban on the thing broke man and maybe we should've taken it back but I think maybe I was too embarrassed to tell my parents because I had so much of my hope and like my ambitions thousands of my happiness set on this objects and I quickly found out that this wasn't at all something that was buying and I didn't want to make the trip back to the PX to returned that thing do you ever heard of that term on military bases. It's like you know I grew up. My Dad was an army when I was growing up. And so we would go on posted hosted. PX There's I don't. I don't think there's any sales tax that's why I was always cheaper. Sort of like the Walmart I guess for the base that they had everything there you could go there even slingshots slingshots especially slingshots in my pocket knives man. So let's talk about that study that we referred to about relative happiness and it showed that lottery winners were no happier eighteen months later than their counterparts than people that didn't win the lottery and super interesting study that followed these lottery winners that a control group and then they had this group of people that won the lottery and they kind of tracked their happiness levels over a year and a half and it turns out that the people that won the lottery. Their our happiness certainly peaked. Sugar rush that you mentioned immediately after winning right but the levels of happiness soon thereafter kind of reverted back to normal allstate and people. That didn't win the lottery right. They didn't have that sugar rush bike but their levels of happiness remained relatively constant as well. They're the exact same place place eighteen months later which is insane to think that right right. It's actually the thing is I've thought about this a lot just especially with recently. We had some really high lottery a couple of folks wanted right in everyone like office talking about. Do you play the lottery or you buy tickets you know. There's a lot of water cooler chatter about it and and honestly I would never play the lottery and it's not because I'm too cheap to buy a ticket. It's because I think a lot of winning the lottery actually worse for you in so many ways than than it. It's better under which remain. Yeah I think if you won the lottery and everyone found out about it everyone would treat you differently. There's so many negative side effects of having crap. Tons of money that people come come out of the woodwork. And they WANNA you probably ask for loan right now man. I don't want to talk about Joey GonNa Cover Beers again right. Here's on Joel. Exactly what if you could win the lottery lottery like nothing insane. But let's say a million right. What if you could win the million dollar Jackpot and it was secret so no one knew what would you do like? was there one thing that you would change in your alive or would you switch it up completely no so I think to. I've thought about that. I think if I won the lottery the the amount of things that would change in my life would be relatively small. Yeah I think you and I've talked about this. Actually this kind of stuff somebody if we won the lottery. I don't think we've talked about on the show before though but if we won if I won the lottery my life would be incrementally better in the points that I care about. Yeah so for instance. We've talked about the why of money in that episode. I mentioned a few things that I prioritize so I would probably prioritize those things just a little bit more. You get two pieces pieces of folk art every year instead of one exactly and I would take two awesome Internet trips every year as opposed to one and that it would be that sort of incremental change Because there's not really much in my life that I want to change that you're doing now. That isn't already making you happy right. Yeah Yeah So. That's that's kind of my thought process behind it. I think it's a really good place to be too because I know there are a lot of people that are have hard financial situations where that would make just an amazingly big difference in the way that they can live. Yeah but then again for for those people oftentimes as you as you see reported out who start off with very little money win the lottery have all that money and then rector lies basically completely wrecked they they they throw it all the way they spend it quickly They buy things that then they can't afford the recurring costs on and it damages. Your lives irreparably in the end too. So yeah well I probably would buy a tesla. I'll say that. Oh that's a good call all right. You Probably WanNa get Tesla you right now. I'm GonNa have to do that actually. Emily and I were driving the other day. I saw one of the road. And I I said you know in about ten years. We're going to have one of those because in ten years that model everybody's GonNa have one of those in ten years basically well they will just be have become so much cheaper. Yeah it'll be like a four year old Honda onto a chord. It's like you see him everywhere and they technologies to improve so much that our ten year old Tesla. Nobody's GonNa want it at that point in time so probably true me and nobody wants my six year old Nissan Leaf right now to slap a new battering that Tesla get a go on talking about. Oh Man I can't wait so back to that. Study was a nineteen seventy study about lottery winners. It turns out they were no happier eighteen months later than they were when they had actually won the lottery right so just realize and keep in mind that those things won't give you that ultimate happiness and keep in mind that needless consumption just won't make hugh happy. So here's what we're not saying. We're not saying that you shouldn't reach for a better job or that. You shouldn't attempt to try to make more money no way. Those are worthwhile goals. We're we're just saying that they're not gonNA move the ultimate happiness needle and that also applies to the little things as well if you're used to keeping your house cleaning in house and doing it yourself as a family. Well well once you step up to hiring a professional clean every month you add in that cost and that convenience. Well it's really hard to go back but after a while it just becomes routine you get used to having someone else clean your house. And that's another example of Hispanic adaptation that as a cost into your life brings you nice little birth of happiness. But it doesn't really have that same effect month after month as it did. Initially when you first made that change that can also be called lifestyle creep right. We've talked about this before. And so these these are ways that head on adaptation can be a negative thing when it comes to spending and your lifestyle after the break though we're GonNa talk about how Donald Adaptation can be a good thing or a necessary thing. Tell me more that I will after the break. I guess I'll wait it it. Did you know that you're supposed to brush your teeth for two minutes. Yeah two full minutes. It doesn't sound like that long but most people rushed they're brushing and don't get through the whole time time. My Gleam Electric toothbrush notifies me every thirty seconds to switch squadrons so I get every area of my mouth plus automatically turns off after two minutes to make brushing easier. I do like that Organiz approach to brush your teeth. The other thing is it's nothing like the other electric brushes all bulky and awkward. The Gleam is sleek minimalistic and beautiful and black back or white JEKYLL. The new battery operated gleam electric toothbrush and get free shipping on every order on gleaned dot com slash how to money that's G. L. E. E. M. dot com slash. How how to money or available at Walmart I met back in the break in just a second ago? We talked about Hispanic Adaptation. We brought up this big big concept. We talked about how it is similar to this treadmill right that we make an incremental change their lives and we feel like we're happier and then boom it dies off pretty quickly and we ultimately haven't gotten anywhere in the process exactly so let's talk about. How adaptation can actually be a good and necessary thing into that study that you mentioned earlier about the lottery winners so in that very same study they also focused on severe accident victims so like paraplegics and they found out that they were happy? Eighteen months later than the control group like the folks that were not involved in an accident. Yeah that's crazy that's crazy to. I think that someone that went through such a traumatic experience. That lost limbs was no less happy. Eighteen months later that you would think to something like that. That's completely Li life. Changing in the negative would result in a loss of happiness. Over time right. Yeah but to think that it has that even flipside coin effect. It all just balances out out. Yeah it's so obviously I'm not recommending. I don't think either of US would say like this is a good thing right to to lose a limb or anything like that but it is a fascinating concept and it was the study was done back in the nineteen seventies and so just just to think that interviewing these paraplegics over time time that their happiness was. Obviously after the event was precipitously down but over time it didn't suffer and their happiness Rosbach to kind of normal levels and that's just a fascinating thing about the human mind the human brain and the way it's wired and what is wired to do is to withstand Dan trauma that is the good part of Don Asian right that we can withstand trauma and kind of result back to baseline sense of happiness. We can see something crazy and utterly horrific and kind of go back to living life right in a normal way and to me that that Kinda blows my mind that we're wired in that way but just knowing knowing that just knowing that knowledge is power in that way to kind of see that this is how my brain is wired and we can see the positives and then we can also see the negatives and we can adapt accordingly accordingly with that knowledge. Yeah most of all it just shows the resiliency of the brain because it's the brain that's making these decisions right maybe not actively but it's the brain that saying saying okay. We're going to kind of keep an even keel here. Another term used sort of described Donna at this emotional thermostat so that any time. There's like an extreme ornate. An extreme but like one way or the other from where you want it that it would adjust and just kind of bring it back to the baseline and so after enough time like you said man like you adjust to the things that you do just regularly or the things that just happened to you and so it essentially just becomes the new normal so in terms of money and spending like like. We're talking about if you're consistently being frugal instead of it feeling like you're depriving yourself and doing something. That's painful eventually. View those choices as normal and then the more expensive and lavish choices that used to make those then become these sort of ad normal way of doing things the things that just seem foreign to you. Yeah and so we recently had the episode. Are you frugal. Or are you cheap. And we talked about that concept and we essentially met you and I we held up the value of frugality and we said that's a really important thing to adopt and being cheap is not a good thing but being frugal is and I think one thing. Though when people hear the word Frugal they ultimately one of the first swerves comes to mind is the word deprivation and they think if I'm frugal I'm depriving myself of the things. That are actually GonNa bring me happiness and I think what this concept of Dodig adaptation reputation brings to the surface is that you're not forgoing happiness by being frugal. What you're doing is you're adapting to this way of normal in your realizing kind of what's true true about yourself those other things that you're pursuing that you think will provide you happiness aren't going to and so you're going them you're choosing instead something that is simpler and in something that allows you to save more and find more financial freedom in your life and all that to say that? Initially there might be some pain still right like that initial like after you say like no I'm no longer going to purchase this. Like they're sort of like with the accident victims. Maybe like there might be an immediate decrease in what they would consider happiness but then after that it levels out right like you you know we still have emotions and they're still sort of polls and draws to like not Wanna go by that Tesla or whatever it is but what's amazing and this is what we're talking about is that the mind is able to sort of reconfigure and adjust to that new point and like you said it doesn't become deprivation anymore because you have told yourself no. This is how I'm GonNa live my life now now. I am in charge of my own spending and frugal becomes the new rallying cry. It's it's sort of the new motto that you follow what you're all about all right since we're already talking about science that's right like in Donna. Adaptation we're talking big words. Well let's talk about maslow's hierarchy of needs because there is a basic level right the can't make cuts to that and you can't adapt there. Are these basic needs that you have to meet. And you can't say well you know what I'm GonNa Starve Myself For weeks on end and assume that my happiness level will just revert to that basic mean. And that's not the case right. There are these basic needs that you need to have met. And if you don't have those things there's just no amount of adapting that can make your brain be able to understand having a lack of things like food shelter clothing safety and love rhyme and even like there's more intangible Emotional thing yeah. You can't deny yourself those things then think you're going to adapt. Yes ultimately we're not talking about those baseline needs that are innate to every human being the concept of adaptation and the treadmill doesn't apply there what it does apply to what we're talking about in reality is how we consume. How how we spend and how about upgrading our lives right? There's kind of a sentiment out there in popular culture. I think that when we get a little extra cash or even if we don't have the cash we need to upgrade ourselves upgrade our lives and if we upgraded in this way or that way and make our lives just a little better here there even if we don't have the money there's a sentiment that that's okay and what we're trying to push back against that and we're saying no no no think about this concept of photonic adaptation anytime you're thinking about you increasing your lifestyle in a meaningful meaningful way buying a new car or getting a bigger house or just those little purchases that you make on Amazon that you think are going to gratify you and ultimately forget the order it shows up on your doorstep and you're like oh I guess I did order that thing. That is what we're talking about. Those are the ways that you can kind of use this concept of Dominic adaptation to your benefit. That's exactly right and that's what we're talking about so like Donald Adaptation earlier. We're talking about how it's negative because you get used to things just from consumption standpoint and now we're talking now had an adaptation being a good thing because you can use it to to your own advantage specifically Try spending less than just notice that you'll get used to it. Plus you'll be more happy happy by saving more of your income because that you're going to be more prepared for financial disasters and so because of that you'll have less stress and then in the end is well you'll be working towards financial independence independence and that's the end goal of trying to be smart and wise with your money and you're spending. Yeah another thing practically to consider is to delay your purchases. I think it's really smart art for us to take something like a two week gap between the I needed phase and then clicking the purchase button online or going to a store to buy what you think you need. That's a good rule of thumb. So yeah think about instituting that sort of gap in between something that you say you want and the time that you actually make the purchase that can prevent you from buying something that what is impulse and that leads to that sugar rush of happiness but ultimately doesn't move the needle practically in your life plus you don't WanNa have just food shown up in your doorstep like does. Does Your House Dog. I know it's weird right another thing to matt a lot of people. I think it's become so easy for us to buy things today. Just one click to purchase on something like Amazon. So maybe ending your prime membership even though you like it and you feel like it does serve you all in some ways. Maybe that's actually the smart move for you because it would prevent you from the sort of behaviors that you think are maybe making you happy but when you actually take stock you take a step back and you think about it. They're not making you happy right so maybe actually kind of giving being a buffer for yourself by not having Amazon prime. Maybe that could actually help you out in the long run worth noting that happiness levels in the US are not increasing despite big increases in wealth living standards technology. Just all the stuff that we have the means though is that our stuff and our circumstances have little impact on on our happiness. Their studies show that we control roughly forty percent of our own happiness which is huge man. Fifty percent is our set point and so typically that that means it's just determined by genetics. It's just kind of built into who we are. And then the remaining ten percent is what's controlled by circumstances so those are the things that are a little more outside of our control. That's just amazing that we still have control over almost half of our own happiness all right after the break. Let's get into those specific things that will increase our happiness and they'll also help put our finances and better order to the future is closer than you think in all starts in the palm of your hand you may have heard the news right.

Be sure to tune into into a very special episode of stuff that was recorded inside a Mazda. C X thirty at the L. A. Auto. Show where I discussed all the INS and outs of human centric design. While you're listening be sure to check out the first ever see X.. Thirty at Mazda. USA DOT COM slash. IHEART or better yet to see the entire Mazda vehicle lineup visit your local area Mazda dealer today man like you mentioned. Let's talk about those specific things to increase your happiness and these are things again that don't involve that mindless spending and consumption. The the first thing I wanted to mention was appreciation for what we already have. Dude what I love about this is that this is almost the exact opposite of Dominic Adaptation. This is focusing on something rather than taking it for granted and just letting it fade into the background and so what I mean by that though is to save her the things we own unlike savers seems like a weird word to say but experiences that we get to take part in in our relationships. These are things that you want to take for granted and just assume that they're always going to be there but just really deep focus on and really enjoy. You want to hang onto the happiness that you already have right there right there with you dude specifically the read about the STOIC or anything like that the branch of philosophy and I don't know much about the Greeks. Yeah but definitely don't don't delve into too hard. Yeah I haven't neither. But what I've specifically learned is really helpful for me is to do this thing that stokes focus on which is called negative visualization and it is a way for them to practice appreciation and to focus on something that they have that they feel like. They're taking for granted. And you do that by imagining that. You don't have that thing or that like something really terrible happens to that thing right so whether that'd be like a relationship like imagine something terrible happens to your way or just you know just imagine you don't have a wife and what your life would be like or say you're kind of getting fed up with with your job and you're kind of complaining about it but I started a new podcast Dave Ramsey and left you behind exactly think about how terrible you would feel if if you actually did that eh but it's sort of removing from your mind the experiences that you have of something that you already have imagining how terrible it would be if that thing wasn't there in in your life it's just a way to focus on the things that you do have and for Mimi and it makes it really tangible and it brings to light the things that I do have like the amazing blessings I have and the the amazing family everything pretty much everything that I had if if you think about a long enough you're like man this is actually a fantastic thing and it can be something that I've been complaining leaning about or something that unfed up with wrap my head around it properly you really start to appreciate what it is that you have. Yeah that's a really good point actually. And that's not something that I feel like that. I have never really thought about it like that. The negative visualization aspect. But two things I feel like my wife and I do try every night with our girls to ask them and get them to talk about one thing that they're thankful for based on that day. It's a really good practice for all of us because then I have to think of one two and some days. I'm like a really bad mood and I don't want to but if he doesn't WanNa think tonight daddy's not happy. It's really good for me every day to have to think and call out loud and say it and talk about it with my girls something. I'm thankful for because I have so many things to be thankful for and then another thing the other day actually. Emily and I had to talk about this. Because I feel like I was maybe complaining a little bit about one of our tenants at one of our rental houses there was just really. I don't think any need for me to be grumbling like I was about the circumstance. It was pretty minor. After all and ultimately ultimately those rental houses have been so good for us as a family they have been so good for our ability to kind of live life on our terms the way that we want to live and and so. I don't know talking about that with emily. After my grumbling kind of allowed me to have a different perspective on the tenant and kind of on on the good thing that is that rental house and what it means to our family so it wasn't necessarily this concept of negative visualization which I think is really interesting. It's like a step that beyond maybe a little depressing but at least just thinking about. What am I doing about? Why and my grumbling about something that in actuality like can I think about the positive side of that because for me? That was just huge this week. Yeah just to kind of think about that problem from the complete flipside of like how how good I have it and I think that is a really good way to to change your mindset especially when you're grumbling or complaining and oftentimes I feel is a conscious watches thing like you have to consciously do it. Oh Yeah you're not going to naturally want to do that and so you have to write it down or something and put it. Put it in front of yourself in the morning. Maybe so so. You're reminded to do that or put yourself in the path of others that are going to remind you right like my wife. She does that for me. Well and hopefully I do that for her. Well that if she is coming to something with a bad attitude I can talk to her not chastising way but hey we'll think about this and you know what remind each other of the good things that we have half because as humans to right. It's easy for us to get bogged down in those negative feelings and having each other about something off of and to it. Help us to think about something in a new way. I think that's really important to all right man so that was appreciation which is awesome. Something that you have control over. And so some additional channel factors and things that do create real happiness that you can't change are things like meaningful work and when I say meaningful work I think a lot of times the first thing people think of our oh I need to go ahead quit my job and get like a real job with that I really feel fulfilled in and I think there's a lot of people out there that have jobs that they would say aren't great but like you said if you're mindful about it and if you're conscious about it you can within that job find meaning within that job you can find Sort of decipher like how through this my serving other people. Well how am I helping people. And that's the sort of thing that where we talk about when we're talking about meaningful work. Yeah you can think about the positive things that your job brings you. Even though it's not necessarily the dream job right you wanted to be and it's also helpful to look at the bright spots right the the good things that do happen whether it's just one one thing that day that was good that happened at your job or one great interaction that you had with a CO worker. I think it's a good way to kind of put a spin on a job that maybe your little tired of or board with. That's kind of a good way to help you. reframe right the good things that your job is currently Even though maybe it's not necessarily the dream job that you've always wanted or that you're super excited to wake up and go to every every day so true man another thing that we have control over our our relationships at least we have a lot of control over or the input right the things that go into relationships and so be embedded in good relationships and this includes your friends and family. You need to make sure that you're in a a nice tight community where you feel understood and were you know you're able to help others and others are able to to help you important your life as well. Yeah and we also have a whole episode on the necessity of community where we kind of extrapolate that concept further. So you check that out in our backlog as well back in the archives man so try and grow and investors relationships right and trying to do that too by engaging with other folks without being lewd your smartphones. Yeah we talked about the whole smart watches thing earlier and screens in general and how distracting they can be sort like this sneaky thing. That's like weaving. Its way into relationships where you're not seeing the other person for who they are and ultimately what that means is like you yourself. You're not being known own and with that leads to are just sorta shallow unfulfilling relationship. So keep tabs on that another factor that leads to happiness in your life that you have a a substantial amount of control over is good health. There are so many studies connecting our physical bodies to our happiness and doing yoga taking a hike bike riding right right like we love bike riding. Those kind of things are instrumental to your good health and your happiness. What about yoga man you? You can do yoga recently. ooh Oh you let everybody know that I like it all right so mission that though definitely not a yoga pro yet But my my wife super into it and she's kind of asking me to go. Hey Eddie you go on a Friday morning before I go to yoga with me and so I've given try a couple of times. I really dig it. I think it's really good for a couple of reasons. I think it's good for my body but it's so good for my mind like we're talking about with smartphones and stuff like that. There are so few times where I don't feel just completely connected and like Yoga. Our is time where I'm completely disconnected from anything except for your own mind my own breathing and so it's it's been. It's I didn't really find kind of do that together. And and so yeah. I don't know I would recommend yoga to people and you know what there's like the stereotype to think for dudes. That Yoga is for four women. Maybe I'm wrong. I stereotype is changing and dudes in there. There are a few but I would tell any guy that's hesitant or the thinks it's not for guys you're wrong and it's totally for guys and girls just such a good experience for your mind and your body. Yeah highly recommend it. I just think it'd be awesome. Awesome for everyone else. That's there actually with you. That gets to watch you. Try to stretch. Because you know you're like six foot seven or whatever and trying to see you bend over and actually touch. Your toes might hilarious. There are certain questions on my wife asked me. She's like did you hear the instruction correctly on that. Because you're really doing what you're facing vowel but it. Yes so yeah. I'm pretty inflexible. And some of the moves. Have to kind of what you're working on it so keep it up. Yeah I'm working I get there. And lastly man of you have control over your purpose right the things that drive you the things that you make time for figure out what those things are and make sure that you're doing them things like hobbies and and also to sort of like again like I mentioned what drives you financial freedom. Like that's for us a big Y behind why it is that we save and why it is that we invest and why we we spend less when we bring back the right man that concept of hypnotic adaptation. We think that maybe working a little bit more To make a little bit more money money to buy a few more things right that that kind of treadmill assuming that those things will be the case a little more work a little more money little more consumption that will lead to happiness. That's kind of the treadmill that we're saying you need to jump off of that things right. That is the scary thing that there is no end to it right. There is is no end to that sort of mindset and finding your purpose making time for meaningful hobbies and exercise relationships were important work that is meaningful. Yeah like those kind of things are life changing and so I would recommend anybody. That's listening right now to maybe stop after this episode and write down some of those things that that arm meaningful to you do the work of thinking about it and putting pen to paper. Because that's how you're GONNA make a meaningful change and jump off the treadmill of a little more a little more a little more and I think probably Matt and I would both admit that for us. This is difficult to write you kind of do that. Natural brain shift right. We talked about about for good or for bad whether it helps. A paraplegic recover after an accident or it hurts a lot of winter and their happiness level is just the same eighteen months later as it was before they won the lottery. That sort of way that your brain works. Well it's got good and bad and Matt and I would say is easy to get on the treadmill and it takes a lot of work in conscious thought to hop off and hopefully after this episode's done you can take a little bit of time to kind of think through some of these things and what brings you actual meaningful happiness in your life and make some changes in a lot of what you're saying right there is the why behind money. And that's an actual episode. We spent an entire episode talking about about what it is that drives you. What is your Wi behind money? And that is so essential so core to the decisions that you make every day when it comes to your spending and lastly if we're are gonNA continue the treadmill analogy is being generous and to be generous and to give your money away and to spend it on others sort of like hitting reverse on the treadmill right right because instead of going full speed for just to sort of stay in the same spot. What you're doing is doing the opposite so you try to give of what you have and think about what good you can do with your money so seeing the needs of others around you and in your community is a much much healthier lens to look through then comparing what you have or what? You don't have to your friends or your neighbors. I love that buddy. I feel like the treadmill is almost got a flip it. Yeah I feel like it's almost as myopic thing where you're looking at let yourself really. That's all it is right. Yeah and and the opposite of that probably the number one way to combat that maybe creating a list of all those things like I just talked about but but then the other thing is being generous with what you have. Yeah because being generous with what you have is this great way to kind of combat this natural instinct distinct to want to accrue more. It just completely reframe things and I give you just a proper perspective on life humanity community and and what actually matters. Yeah almost see it as like an antidote to like selfish spending and consumption commercialism just everything sort of gross and bad out there right tripling people for one hundred fifty dollar. TV Black Friday right yeah. It's the exact opposite. Yeah exactly yeah. Let's get back to this beer. Then this was the mango Faira flux and that is by Mars and they are Z.. Humidity brewing company out of Chicago and our for an Andrew brought this beer back from Chicago so For us thanks Major. What'd you think of this? It was really good. I tell you what man I think. Mango Beers are where it's at not a huge fan of mangoes themselves. Flaming goes like the fruit. I think it's the texture. It's kind of slimy you slice it and it's still stuck together like why is this still stuck together. Yes so don't really like to eat mangoes but mangoes has it. He's Asian to itself like the perfect beer fruit. Yeah so it's a bottle conditioned Berlin of ice with mangoes and Brett in that break is like a nice dryness but with a mangoes. They're nice little fruit little fruit touch to the end of it. I really dig it yet. Almost had like an champagne effervescence too. Yeah so that was kind of Nice. It was nice and bubbly right when you're porn it. Yeah Yeah So. I never had anything by this. Before and the Mangueira flux I would recommend a man really good arm final thoughts we talked about how Adana catnip station can be a bad thing. We think that buying things make us happy but it turns out. It's more like a sugar rush and it doesn't lead to ultimate happiness so really just just understanding the concept in the reality of the treadmill that we're on that's the place to start. That's right man like buying that quick little thing you think is going to improve your life but in reality your happiness is level comes right back down to that sort of baseline happiness and because of that had on adaptation can also be a good thing because if something negative were to happen to you if you get enough time you're also going to readjust readjust and for you know what you're going to be at a point to where you feel close to the same amount of happiness that you did before that terrible event would happen and so ultimately you want to use this concept of Donna Augmentation or the Hispanic treadmill to your advantage in spending less money if you kind of realize these characteristics about your brain and the way it works it helps you to combat and fight the urge to spend more realizing that those little sugar rushes of happiness that you get from a quick purchase. Don't really move the needle in the long run and changing your habits can actually lead toward more long-term happiness by creating real financial stability in your life. That's right man and so one one of the ways that you can bring that long term happiness is appreciation and what I love about. This says that this is truly as the complete opposite of Dominic Adaptation. It's Savoring the things that we own the experiences that we get to take part in and most importantly our relationships hang onto that happiness that you already have i. I love that concept. My friend is just so good to sit back and appreciate the good things that you have in good friendship man. That's like at the top of the list. Are you saving our relationship right now. Is that what you're thinking of this very instant love you buddy so also being generous that is the other main antidote to that hypnotic treadmill to get you to hop hop off by giving what you have your time in your money in serving other people around you in meeting needs that exist in your community if you live a life of generosity rosty. It's kind of like throwing a wrench in that treadmill electronic parts that's like fizzle and spurts Marquesa flying exactly and so that's kind of the way to get yourself off of that crummy treadmill life right and getting into something more meaningful plus running on treadmills sucks man. Have you ever run on a treadmill. Do try to avoid running altogether. Like if I want to run somewhere where I wanna go to get outside and actually run running on treadmills terrible in my opinion. I feel the same way about stationary bikes. Yes don't get it. Yeah Yeah I don't get it at all. Get outside all right. That's going to be it for this episode. Thanks everyone for listening.

We speak to you from our present which we can only assume as your distant past the turbulent time that was the early twenty first century during the great great cataclysm that will surely befall our civilization. We began this monumental reference of strange obscure human knowledge. These recordings represent our attempt to compile and preserve wonders offers and ESOTERICA that would otherwise be lost so whether you're listening from an advanced civilization or just reinvented the technology to decrypt our transmissions. This is our legacy because he you. This is our time capsule this is the US. uh-huh you have accessed entry. Six three seven dot easy one seven zero four certificate number three eight nine three three eight induced demand. Excellence the whole correct. Today's the very first day that I drove here to our recording bunker through Seattle sprint. spanking new toll tunnel. Oh that's right. It costs money now to go through the tunnel that they kind of They you gave us a little taste for a few months of of not charging. It's pretty smart. It's like the gateway drug right. It's like standing outside at a school near kids. You on this free tunnel and how was it Was it less congested. As a result of now costing two dollars it. It was a buck twenty-five this morning it's variable so outside of rush hour cheap. Good to go bleeper. I had to buy a little sticker. I'm not clear on how it works. You know they have put a sticker behind your review mirror and a surveillance camera and they have the cameras in there. It's it's a little bar code or something I don't know just seeing it visually with its little retinas. Like if I were in the camera could I tell everybody's cars and charge them. I put it has an RFID. If I D chip in it yeah it probably does right. I think it probably does. I was going to say infrared but we don't are all RFID. Now Yeah I don't even know what that is. It just means that somebody can read my credit cards. It's a phone. It's it's frogs related. Yeah that's right you need to. That's why I keep my wallet wrapped in seven layers of aluminum foil. I have one. I have a cap that I wear under my wig. That's GonNa Affect Your posture at some point having just six inches of aluminum foil in one of your pockets. My Wallet has this Little Flap that says rfid on it. No it doesn't but I don't know what the flap even. What even is this of its I do I have to put that flap over the security does this symbolize that? The whole wallet has amazing. Maybe maybe is it like when Superman can't can't see through lead like Lex. Luther has to hide his operation behind A. That's exactly what it is detained. Because you're sitting there at the you're at the gas station you no longer have have to put your credit card in because it's just reading the apple pay off of your retinas or whatever but the person is willing to pay for gas. Read Your brand and it takes that much out of your your bank account. The guy in the in the Ford explorer parked on the other side of the of the pump is has a has some sort of you know electromagnetic addict Superman that. He's just got an APP on his phone. His download the ninety five cent after this turned his phone into a rooted steeler. He's the roofing. Bandit of of Arco Station. These are really complex and perilous times. I feel like I. It doesn't trouble only because it hasn't happened to me yet. Oh nothing bad has happened. You've had your your identity theft. Did Not in a big way. I've had to change credit card numbers a couple of times because people bought big ATV with them. I guess or they always buy small things. I'm very confused. I tried to donate to public radio. Last week will never do that. There's my first mistake. No I support support the incredibly well funded Seattle public radio and I just want to pour more money on their huge pile that they have in the back room and I wanted me to prove I wasn't a robot just to give one hundred bucks two. Oh Yeah Is that a problem for a lot of robots donating to to NPR. Well you you know how half the things I do on the Internet now. I have to prove I'm not a robot but then I'm I'm I guess I'm doing some fairly sketchy things on the Internet and would I want to just ask you. I like it when it's just like a euro at. Here's a box. If you're a robot you legally happened to tell me by checking that box no robot would know to check this box. It's it's the ASIMOV's test. I hate the ones that I fail like. Pick out every traffic light in this picture. And it's like really I don't I can't and I was like a second level sometimes. Oh good I'm on level level. Two of picking out a traffic sign. I think you go to level two if you fail. Is that what it means. I thought I was just really good. And getting to the fossil finding finding stop upside more find more crosswalks can cross box. I I think the reason why even charities have to do this now is because people were still in credit card. Chart numbers will test the waters by giving fifty dollars to a nonprofit and that's how they know the number works and it's just because all these crooks because they just love supporting the impartial journalism of of public radio so the tunnel was great The tunnel was ten minutes cheaper or ten minutes cheaper ten minutes faster than the freeway. Now listen ten minutes. Faster is ten minutes cheaper time. China's money it. In my opinion it is and your time is worth more money than the average bear should have a huge money. My H- goals balloons that I swim through my house. What I need is time time with my beloved children before they turn thirteen and hate me time? But you really have to do that equation now. Because you're thinking the tunnel is GonNa Mukasa Buck twenty-five ten minutes quicker. What would I rather have right? I'm not getting ten more minutes of my life. Do you think your time is worth twenty dollars an hour. But I'm getting the same amount of time all this time. Saving thing is kind of Bolt. Let's just do I wanNA spend it staring at my phone on the freeway. If I'm stopped behind another car and my glances toward twitter. My terrible person. Yes maybe no you are. Maybe I haven't how many times have you impeded the flow of traffic even briefly. Because you were focused on something and you know I'm good. I'm such a people pleaser that the very first time someone had to tap on their horn because I was looking at my phone at a light I'd decided I'm never doing that again. Ever again so I'm still getting my phone but I'm nervously glancing up at the light like literally every three years the first one to go the light turns. Because you're like me. Are you really good at this at at being a non phone driver who know I'm also bad. I what I try to do is every every week or two I I. I swear. I'm not going to carry my phone with me anymore. I'm GonNa just use some other technology the sun to me so I'm GONNA use the John I'm gonNA use my shortwave radio that carry around in a headset. I have a hat. I have a helmet has to a beer cans in it and also assure wavering. That's amazing. That's where coach calls in your signals. You GotTa have that. But I but I'm the same like if I sit at a traffic light. I'm nervously glancing all the time. Not because anyone has ever honked stop me but because I am so infuriated when someone else does it and I don't want to. I don't want to you. Got The internal Hong Kong debut. Your conscience do them just like do not be that person does. There's a lot more responsibility. When you're the first person you're behind someone I feel like I have amazing peripheral vision and maybe everyone America thinks they have above average criminal leading? Not because it happens. Sounds to me all the time but I feel like if I'm behind somebody I'm looking at my phone. I can tell when the guy ahead of me brake lights go off but if you're the first one in line if you can't see the red-green change out of the corner of your unless you're right you'd have to have one or you have to hold your phone up directly in front of the traffic signal like but then looks like you're taking a picture of something that's not. That's not really bad. I mean if you if it appears that you are monitoring the traffic signals with some APP on your phone that makes you even more complex and compelling this cool guy. WHO's somehow hacking the traffic? What's he doing? He knows he's got a back door into the ribs. Got Do you remember the old. I've still don't know if this is hundred percent true but fire engines and ambulances always purportedly had the power to a change traffic lights and I sometimes just a week ago. I saw it. I think happened. Yeah but who knows if the light would is going to turn green anyway for a long time. When I was in in my teens and twenties the rumor was that if you're coming up on a traffic light and you flash your brights in imitation of a of a you know of a of a of a flashing light of a of an emergency vehicle? Do you have to have red and blue headlights. No I think it was just flash your headlights and that there are sensors answers in the traffic lights. That will change if you flash your rights and so for a decade when I was on a a road at night. Can you give me the date range here when when when Save Save between one thousand nine thousand. Six Hundred Nineteen ninety-six. I if I were the only driver I would flash lights at at a red light and what about. It seemed like there was a there was some causality the light would turn. And how much did you need. Economists would like to know is how. How often does this have to happen to keep going one second term? I think it'd happened thirty percent of the time and thirty percent of the time I felt like there was probably rigged for some other reason and thirty percent of the time I felt like it was my timing was off the rest of the time. You're like this one's broken but thirty percent of the time I feel like the light would change on my behalf offended that I had a secret hack in hindsight. It seems unlikely that they were putting low light. Sensors would have existed in the late eighties. But would they'd been putting them in every the traffic signal. Probably not although you know the I mean I haven't read every page of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. There might be in there. I did the same thing but I just thought it was a speaker so I just stuck my head out the window and went to turn turn. I tried the other thing if he driving you. Just say under your breath Lake Turkana. Dan I had. I just do an Improv exercise where I would feel more like a fire engine or an ambulance like just Kinda give the impression maybe carry myself. It'll method that is like an ambulance to see if I could trick the intersection. Lee Strasberg method. Exactly if you were. We're in firearms. And what kind of fire engine would you be. But this is the kind of When they built that tunnel they tore down our big waterfront freeway anyway? One thousand nine hundred forty s era viaduct earthquake damaged built on swampy Phil viaduct and it was exactly for earthquake. Related reasons reasons. They weren't like one of new vibrant thing. We can add to the city. Let's get rid of this awful elevated freeway from the era of elevated freeways no the thing had decrepit cracking so badly that the next quake was gonNA knock I think the big quake in San Francisco where the Embarcadero freeway fell down on. People and pin cake to them was the next day we all drove on the viaduct with a lot of trepidation on the upper one odd. I definitely thought that many times. I'm just going to ride it right into the bay when it when it starts to fall but But from the timer we had our last nerve quake in two thousand one last big earthquake. That really rattled things and when they finally tore it down was a period of eighteen years. Right up where we were driving on a on a thing where we had been told visible the next break. It wasn't visible cracks chunks chunks were falling out of this thing and I'm not an expert infrastructure but is that not what you want chunks falling out of era elevated free ways. Did you go walk. You walked on it right. After they closed it I did and walking on it was the most terrifying thing I've ever done in the sense that I've been driving on this thing every day or or as many times a week it had a beautiful view. That's how you could look at the Olympics. You could look at the water you can take your mind off the possibility ability of imminent death but walking on it you really were stepping over giant missing pieces of this concrete freeway where you could look down forty feet feet to the ground. It was like flying in one of those One of those Bush Airlines and Alaska in the nineteen eighties. There were a lot of there still are a lot of Bush appealate airlines up there. These are all your all your symbolism metaphors are related to Alaskan Bush pilot and there were a lot of progress in war was like this one Alaskan asking Bush pilot. I remember there were a lot of planes and this is probably still true but there there was less regulation than a lot of planes that were very old and held together with Baling Wire. I remember getting on a plane down to Seoul dot now from Anchorage one time and it was a it was not a small plane. There were ten passengers on it and and you can absolutely see daylight through the floor playing in the in the in the crack between the door and the and the fuselage and take through multiple places in the plan you can see daylight. We're all used to being on airplanes. That had no installation in that were very loud but but I had never been in one. That was so this this was an airline right. It wasn't just a guy on his plate but they were not flying at some elevations where they had depressurize. Oh No no no no yes you know. They're they're all up. Just puddle Jumpers from Anchorage to Gary Airlines. Yeah get down and just flies fifteen feet off the road if you wanted the Albatross from the rescuers. It's exactly what was the. We'd like to go rescue a little girl. Oh It's pretty windy out there. I had A. I had a roommate in college. who had a car that was you know with the floor had rusted through? Maybe we all have made you or drug dealer hydro across the country and you can see the freeway with and I just remember thinking you know. We're very close to a flintstone stone solution here like if that all gets a little bigger we can literally do that. But one of the solutions one Seattle was tearing down the viaduct offer again public code collapsing freeway reasons. was a tunnel and the city kept voting down owned multiple billion dollar tunnel but a bunch of different options were moved to the city voted. No on all of them and one of the options could have been just do nothing to get rid of this main arterial through downtown Seattle and a lot of the discussion said that this will not be as catastrophic as you think. Now what we're what was your take on that at the time as voter think I voted no on everything. I think maybe wander here Seattle Way. I'm a straight ticket ticket voter. Nope the Party of no not that one either. nope sorry good space guy. Hey Miles it's me Jack uh-huh right here right next to you next to me. Yeah just like a work. Hey I wanted to join with you to tell people to tune in to a very special episode special up yeah of TD. The News I is this is actually it. Look I know you saw the social media is at the Elliott. Oh so so he said what are these two juggernauts podcasting doing their when Mazda calls me up and they say miles. We know that you're loyal. Mazda owner we want to align with you um because you get it yet you know what I'm willing to answer the call and help Ding Dong help. People understand the power of it so we did. Is We actually got to record A special episode inside the new Mazda C X Thirty where we talked about Kinda like flow states and feeling alive and how we feel alive. What makes us feel alive live? Yeah it was really doped actually record inside the car. I got depressed. A lot of buttons. Make them mad because of like please don't fumble around in here but I said I like to explore the less if you actually want to check out the first ever see X.. Thirty check it out and Mazda. USA DOT COM slash IHEART. Or if you're trying to check it up. Irl then pull up to the local dealership today The because I had been convinced by you know probably some new urban type in the stranger who had told me we can just get rid of this thing thing. We're convinced of that. Yeah it seemed. I liked the fact that it was counterintuitive and I had discovered some new secret that other people who had not read some wired article did not know sure hurt which was hacked. The freeway you can just you can just get rid of stuff. And it's not as bad as anyone thinks. Well I think the Embarcadero is the is the thing that everyone uses to demonstrate. Yes right they tore that entire freeway down and it was the only thing that connected One Oh one the only way to get from one. Oh one to to the major freeways anyways to the to the Bay Bridge on paper. This was a terrible idea. You just GonNa you're GONNA come off the Golden Gate Bridge and have to drive through the streets thing the street think. I think what will happen to downtown. You come up. You're very angry through the streets where my children play with their toys. Streets of San Francisco where Michael. Douglas does cop stuff tough but they did tear it down and they they rebuilt the embarcadero as A. I guess they say. Pedestrian friendly have having been a pedestrian on it many many times very wide. It's not super friendly. I mean if you try and if you try and run across it going against the light it's your basically like really you're on your your bombing run through the death star. It's frogger and that's going to happen on. Our waterfront is well. It's GONNA be a why it's GonNa be replaced by a wide surface boulevard a wide boulevard where where people are driving faster than than probably but but the embargo is nice. and honestly you don't basically Vancouver is D- San MM Franciscan said right. Is that what they wanted will vancouver. Never never had a freeway going into the town. It just had a super wide boulevard. That was that were traffic when really fast but had stoplights but Vancouver had had a the first lush which was where you bought soap. That looked like food and three by your bath bombs. And that's exactly what San Francisco one. I go up to Canada and I sneak bombs across the border. But they're bad ball balm's do you have any bombs uh-huh officer are you saying with silent l like people who say almond get out of the car so so I was very much in favor of tearing down the viaduct and doing nothing and doing nothing. Leave the streets as they were build a park in that space and let the chips fall not literally in early. The chips were falling. The chips were already fallen right. Let's that's why you couldn't turn it into a high line types park because again it was going to collapse super unsafe. A lot of people wanted it to be a highland highland park and I was because I'm on the Seattle Music Commission or although I got an email the other day the didn't exactly thank me for my service but the email included the line. You know All of our emeritus members. Hey I was like am I one of those now. Am I am an emeritus. But as a member of the Seattle Music Commission possibly emerges we possibly marriages we We had a very vested in the redevelopment of the waterfront because there are lots of opportunities to build venues places where musicians can ply their trade. There's a big psychological barrier to building it elevated freeway through a neighbor through an area right. You know like you'd think it wouldn't change the underlying vibe much to just scared of a freeway but it does. It does in a major way and and so I went to a lot of meetings of the waterfront redevelopment people and boy when that idea of of turning the elevated freeway into a park came around you know some citizen initiative the waterfront redevelopment people were more opposed to it and more more like circle the wagons to make sure this doesn't happen than almost any other aspect of the project. Do they know. It would be catnip into Seattle voters. Yes they we're going to have a thing like Chelsea they absolutely felt like this thing that if it gets out of hand people will really wanted and it's a terrible idea and we have to stop it was it was a behind the scenes. Glimpse of how municipal politics sometimes worked around when I seen it was a terrible idea for structural reasons. If you don't want cars up there during earthquake you don't want a bunch of Pedestrians Austrians and cotton candy vendors. It was a bad idea but what they what the reason they didn't like it. Is that Seattle. SEATTLE LOVES TO GET A bunch of well-meaning people together with a vision and the vision they had for redeveloping. The waterfront did not include a decrepit. We've chosen the division was just like no and once they had the vision. It's different from an Old Testament version. I work out and God had given our committee this we have all seen it and now we must make it come to pass yes. This happened in Seoul Korea my own my own home you see daylight through the Kimchi. The Alaskan Bush pilots come in the accidentally to Korea. There was a freeway right through elevated for right through the center of downtown Chengguan freeway a and I think it was the main arterial hundred sixty thousand cars a day pouring into downtown on this thing and they built it. I think through the only sometime in the post Korean War seventies or eighties. Maybe we built it in only stretch where they could which was where the river used to go through downtown so they had covered over a nice stream and giving us in a dirty smelly noisy elevated. This was the Providence Rhode Island's philosophy of urban develop whoever the Korean Robert Moses this exactly and sometime in the two thousands the new urban EST movement in some vision of urban renewal daylight. The rebel day decided we the stream would be amazing. This could be a all you have to do is get rid of the only arterial into downtown Seoul. And they did so on freeway they just tore down and last time I was in Seoul. It was like a paradise like part of town. I hated to go to now. Had this beautiful park lined and streamed kind of babbling. Its way through the one of the biggest cities in the world with lined with fountains and vendors and public art and they had just turned turned it into Portland or San Antonio River walk or something for for one block of Seoul This is a phenomenon called reduced demand where you get rid out of a good and once the good is gone. There's no supply demand drops people decide. They don't want it. You see it in. There's a movement now to you turn a lot of urban thoroughfares into pedestrian streets. They turn Broadway through Times Square into a pedestrian street a couple of times a year. Now I think and everyone everyone tells them. Don't do it every other street around. There's going to be a disaster right and it isn't because demand is not fixed. It varies according to the Policy Changed Changed Surrounded Dallas did the did the opposite or a different version of it at that we hear about Seattle to which is cover the freeway. We're hearing about this now. Everybody wants to live. I five through Seattle and Dallas did it and and what had formerly been a big GNARLY. Early freeway. Scar through town is now one of these food. Truck rivers farmers market catalyzes. Everybody's up there just completely like there's no. We have no big freeways. It's all just watch for you. It'd be times I would like the freeway scar to be gone it really. I was thinking about this the other day. I live near Era Lake in Seattle and their stuff just on the other side of the lake. That seems to me a whole different neighborhood. Inaccessible in an approachable and in fact I could walk there from my house except for the fact that they put I five right through ninety nine. No I'm talking about on the east side of the lake when they put five maple leaf. Oh I see maple leaves should be a quick walk walk from Greenland those neighborhoods should consider green like their park destination. But instead there's you know there's ten lanes of freeway through this is amazing radio. uh-huh programming for future links. That live in Tasmania. We're like maple leaf okay. We really should explain this one time in human history where where people lived in big unworkable cities. There was a brief century right when the invention of the automobile and the artificial cheapness of fossil fuel meant that instead of living thing and working in a convenient area wherever each other people decided. Here's what's better. Here's what's better. I'm going to live in one place then. I'm going to work someplace far away from there and then I'm GonNa shop and do all my errands in third place which is neither of those. It's some kind of mall in different suburb. and Luckily I have a metal box that will take me to all these places and I feel I feel independent a metal box that used to be super fun to drive but now just is another form of total suck edge because of congestion everybody got one of these metal boxes. Apparently that was unforeseeable foreseeable. Right well and there are a lot more people than there used to be. There are and that's one of the things that makes the math and the planning on this super hard but you know as early as the nineteen thirties thirties. When when this was beginning this was not the postwar levittown boom in suburbs but people were starting to be the boom with automobile met? People could live further author away from what they would have considered old neighborhoods and still have an efficient lifestyle. And you know streetcars as well. Early transit right grew sprawled cities in in a way that they had not before there are a lot of neighborhoods in Seattle that. We're specifically designed around streetcars. So that and we think of these now as being very close close in neighborhoods that are very walkable and by Kabul but back then that's where the forest began. Yeah and and and they built they built. The the Streetcar Cornet Work Around The idea that every streetcar stop would be a little neighborhood. Hub and here grocery. Here's where you do your banking and when I ran for city council I advocated. I advocated for a like a sort of a rebuild of that of that network doubt was not a popular turned out program. It turns out there. They made them all into Baijal by trails. Right and people are not going to get rid of their bike trials. Well it's not just is that but there is a there is a lot of at least in Seattle a lot of resistance to the idea of of like the hard infrastructure of rail because people have been convinced that buses can do the same thing that trolleys do accept somehow. They're flexible because they can. You can have a steering wheel and turn them a different way if you want. They can respond and they're cheaper. They aren't over. Time is that true because because buses are because the they require so much. I mean. There's a lot more wear on a bus ride a trolley. Just the life expectancy. The of the infrastructure is a lot sort of long lasting than than buses but also in urban planning and I hate to be Joe Urban Est here but but what you don't consider is going to be joe what you don't want in public. Transit terms is flexibility which you want is is to have development follows rail in a way that it does not follow bus line. And if you have consistent train stops then you have a lot of predictability in terms of density here and density there. And you don't have this crazy sort of morpheus Building that happens but that's the market. John See this. This is the core of this debate. Is How much planning should there be. And as early as the nineteen thirties. One streetcars ars were allowing urban plans to start thinking about outlying areas and to have visions of massive highways starting to run through their heads. I read I read the. What's the Robert Karabakh about Robert Moses? It's that right. They have the same first name. Robert Caro Writing About Robert Moses. Does he only read books about people named Robert is is Linda Johnson actually named Robert. Robert Lyndon Baines Johnson and he's a blues the yeah. No that's right. They're both Robert. I thought I'd screwed up for Robert de lis fantastic. I'm waiting for the Robert Redford. Book The in the Nineteen Thirties Robert Moses noses was kind of the the most powerful city planner in New York and therefore in America and he had no training in any of this stuff. But you wouldn't know no legacy has been complicated by the Robert Caribou until the book came out. I feel like people's Goto. Conventional Wisdom about Moses was not that he was corrupt racist who made terrible decisions and that's kind of our understanding of him now. Although all you have to do is is walk around stuyvesant town or I mean what on the lower east side or take. Bq E anywhere to feel at least in contemporary terms. Evan leaving the racial aspect of aside that those both I mean the Bq he did the same thing as the freeway in Detroit just went right through it did it did. It's sort of what you're saying. It made chopped off made streets that were two blocks apart seem ten miles apart and then of course stuyvesant town. It's it's funny the power psychological distance. We all know. That store is still a block away. It was there before they built the thing but now it just feels like I have to go across his terrible freeway and it is. It's like crossing the river. Hell River a hell frogger river at the time of the new deal when the Roosevelt administration was freeing up all this money for massive infrastructure projects. I'm listening because I love talking about the new D- Oh boy we need is a new new deal in my opinion. Hey all the green new deal. I'll take all this. Cash was available and rubber. Moses was the only person who has shovel ready projects ready to go because he was a guy with one of these old testament visions and he had very clever thing he would do which we still see today where he would just tell legislators or Aldermen or whatever alter people that it would be. You know this thing thing would cost one tenth of the actual cost and then the city's committed and then it creeps up to two hundred million dollars when he said twenty. What are you going to do? We're already working on it. We can't stop sure so he was able to get a ton of federal money for massive road projects Manhattan and Long Island But the The results were not what people expect it in. Nineteen thirty six. Robert Moses unveiled these amazing new thoroughfares to Long Island the Grand Central Expressway the expressway. The Lawrenson Expressway thirty-six ninety-three six. Yeah and there was all talk about how we had solved solved. Manhattan's traffic problems a long island for generations. We've got these three new wide expressways heading out into the hinterlands and within three weeks seeks traffic returned to previous levels which surprised the hell out of the city that had just paid the equivalent of billions of dollars for those new expressways so by nineteen thirty eight. They're already building new expressways out to Long Island. It happened with bridges as well in nineteen thirty six. Robert Moses Opens detri- Borough Bridge to relieve terrible terrible traffic on the Queensboro Bridge. It's a new way to get across the East River and again within within a matter of weeks or months. Traffic is back to as bad as it was not just on the old bridge but on the new bridge as well so bad that in nineteen forty they have to build the Bronx Whitestone Bridge to relieve traffic on the Queen's driver and then then within Within a matter of months all three bridges are as bad as one bridge used to be the city's trying to figure out what's going on here. They've estimated that within in one year they managed to create six million new trips across the East River just by giving people more bridges to. That's fantastic it's fantastic. I think if you want more trips across the East River I mean it's just a fantastic statistic fantastic statistic. That was wonderful. It really is nice. You know in nineteen eighteen thirty. The population earn. Let's nineteen forty. The population of New York was seven and a half million in two thousand and ten. It was only only one million or not even one million more people so so we're looking we're thinking of one thousand nine hundred forty New York as being kind of a smaller town but but it's not. It's already interesting. It already had seven point five. We can vision. The density of of a lot of that is obviously the skyscrapers offers of Ghana but also people have moved out. Sure there's been sprawl hormonally. Yeah and we see this weird. They called it traffic traffic generation. And it's it's a phenomenon. Cities are starting to see time and again unexpectedly you know L. A. Widens the four. Oh five and was never within and weeks. The newlands are just as backed up as the lanes Meet the meet the new traffic jam. Same as the old traffic right. Boston does the big dig. And it's a Boondoggle by the time it gets done at least we've got these new lands for the city and then cramped day get just as craft. Have you been stuck in traffic in the big dig. I haven't the one time I used it after after flying in it was after hours. So it's not so bad duck in traffic in the big. Why did why are they still calling it? The big dig does no. It's it's like the freedom him tower they can call it whatever they want. It's always going to be the freedom. Why did they decide? It's one World Trade Center now. Do they hit the freedom they do hate the freedom. It's precisely why was it was. Is it called French tower before and they had no I think maybe they thought that calling it. The Freedom Tower was like taunting try and fly planes into it and so it was originally called. We dare you to fly planes into this tower top yours. No the big is awful to be stuck in under under because because you're because you're very conscious it's like being stuck in the Hudson stuck under the Hudson claustrophobic yeah you just. You're aware of there being a giant body of water over your head and that's at least for me uncomfortable. It's one thing to be speeding through there at one o'clock in the morning at and seventy one delusion of safety that comes speed starts to collapse. I'm going to zoos ahead of a of the of the wave of water in a movie. But you're just sitting down there like choking on other people's exhaust. There's nowhere to run. Got No options. I don't like it. This audio book is terrible that I'm listening to give me out of here. Yes so the. You know the thinking about traffic doc was always that it was just like a liquid. You just gotTa give pipes to pour through and you're gonNA make the pipes bigger one if it wasn't what if it was a gas well as we expanded to fill larger pipes mean more liquid. It's a it's related to an economic phenomenon called induced demand and people are going to say can you didn't mention induced demand manned until over half an hour into the show but people won't unlucky actually Iguana Iguana Squid hybrids complain. But look doc we've been talking about India's demand the whole time. Did we call it by its name. No no we're just be us about our cats know. We certainly were not. We're talking about induced demand in in a in a roundabout fashion. Just didn't know what the word was and now now we're there. It was not a roundabout fashion because we didn't discuss roundabouts which is another European city planning initiative initiative butter a city planning initiative that is amazing but in implementation in in Washington. You often see them with stop signs. I love coming to a roundabout stops. Somebody just wanted to put us in the middle of this intersection. Apparently and that's fine. Okay stuff done. Also Americans don't know how to use them. I always stop in applaud when I see when I see perfectly constructed roundabout that somebody was like no we have to put a traffic light here. The The phenomena induced demand works like this people. Want something only because people want more of it if you give them more of of it. There's not a lot when you look in the research on induced demand. There's not a lot of goods that economists apply it to Interesting because it seems seems like it would be applied. Broadly yeah I mean. Do people want coffee more if they seem more starbucks. Maybe but there's not a lot of research on it. Let me ask you this. Did you ever want to go to a bar. Where you through axes avatar? Yeah did it's really the only thing I wanted to. Every time I walk into a bar I thought another says fine socializing. They're selling drinks. There's a jukebox. I'm into all of this. But where are the axes. It smells smells like ax over by that Guy Ding. I think economists would argue that. Maybe that's the case of latent demand that there was this untapped desire clearly because once they're there are people do it right but I think this is a good example because yeah if you had pulled this question should bars have axes in two does five you would have got one hundred percent agree. No affirmative right reasons but now if you pulled people there'd be a certain percentage uh-huh of people maybe a large percentage that say. When does the axe throwing far in my neighborhood? Hope Right which nights of the week is xtra which nights or trivia because I want to be there an axe throwing throwing night but I do feel like induced demand applies to starbucks or starbucks. Little if there's no there's not. There's not thirty coffee shops in your neighborhood. You won't think of that as a as coffee as a social signifier right before. There was a meeting type before there was a starbucks inside of a supermarket across the street from a free standing starbucks across the street from another starbucks I. I don't think people needed that much coffee. And now they do they really do. It was coffee wasn't liquid. No way coffee was a guess. Coffee was talking liquid in the pipe and aerosolize coffees floating into our bodies caffeinated. Our Desire Zaire for more and more starbucks the latent demand means pent-up desire for a thing that didn't exist and that that's easy to see you know people maybe people did did want phone with a better camera and that's why they get excited about the new iphone. It's something that people already wanted. People wanted a flight to a new new location and so the airline introduced it. But you know with the new product can come advertising and awareness that build up maybe people didn't want to go to Belize but now there's nonstop and people will think instead of Hawaii what if I just go to Belize. I've seen billboards right. I've seen fire. I've seen rain. I've seen the following three things. I five second rate third billboards about believes situated on the beautiful cable beach mar is a spectacular. Learn new resort destination in the Bahamas with your choice of three oceanfront hotels.

I've seen research on induced demand applied to is insurance especially in our time. Now that we're we're talking about applying health insurance two broad groups of people making it more broadly available preps on a public scale. One of the worries you here. Is that well. If people have better insurance prince guess what sure they're going to use it sure they're going to be out dating prescription. They've got they've got a cough. They've got a sore knee. They're going to go to a doctor right and on on certain media outlets is this is a boogeyman damn them. Can you imagine the front of them to go see medical care when they had health problems. Although there is a small a small percentage of Malinga lingers sure I was thinking about that like and I'm sure nationalized health systems have to deal with a small percentage of HYPOCHONDRIAC hypochondriacs hypochondriac. There should be hyper. They want more Andrea hyper hyper hypochondria. Whatever contra is what is what is the root of HYPOCHONDRIAC? Oh this is interesting. This is is more interesting than traffic to me. The whole show is going to be about this now. Congress is from the Greek for cartilage. So a HYPOCHONDRIAC. I guess theoretically someone who doesn't have enough enough cartilage. A hypochondriac would have too much too much cartilage big ear lobes. I guess I close hypochondriac because I've lost some cartilage in my left knee so the derivation Arab Asian does not have to do with joint pain. The I guess the Greeks said that the your your hypochondriac house was actually place under your cartilage. It was your torsos between the ribs and the naval so your your body cavity there. That's one of your key locations right or isn't that where you too much cartilage that she can't get out right. Well that's also. Put Your Sacco a Seppuku sword right in there and it just kills your cheese Sepulvado. Uh Watch Co was your that. was that great. He was that great detective in the Ads El Al Pacino with a beard you put you put Sepulvado in you. And he the He roots out your police corruption. It's not clear to me. Why the word Hypochondria hypochondriac means the area in your midsection? I do believe we should save this for future future future omnibus. Because I feel like a lot of future links may be entirely midsection right all. Their health problems are related to their HYPOCHONDRIAC. Akos that's right. Well so I guess all national health systems probably have to deal with. There's a tiny percentage of the population that wants to be at the doctor that will over seek kelp ran. You have to put regulation in place to account for that but aside from that. It's not clear to me that people seeking medical care is the worst. More medical medical care would be awful for society. I guess that's the kind of depends on ideology and I wonder. I wonder if there is any induced demands as a result of opening opening more doctors. They're putting more doctors. Offices are opening more access to Dr. It appears to me that there is if you if you think Qalat about the the broad variety of medical options open to you and maybe you could argue that latent demand. I don't like going to the doctor. I don't like talking to doctors. I don't like sharing elevator with the doctor. The problem is not just that they're born. Yes talk about golf. Although they are they are boring they also are bad at making eye contact and and to abrupt. I think on a relationship basis. You're unhappy it has nothing to do with your own health and mortality. Because that's my problem. I don't want to go to the doctor. Because what what if they tell me. I have to eat more brand or I need to start taking pills three times a week or something bad is happening. I don't like talking to doctors because I want a portion nine eleven and can't afford one and so I don't want to talk to them about their Porsche. Nine eleven that I'm convinced they don't appreciate the European for So but aside from insurance aside from health insurance traffic demand is the big area where induced demand comes into play because cities are starting to see this cities. These were not planning around the idea that they could not solve problems with more lanes. It's it's so counter. Intuitive that like a lot of counterintuitive things it it your mind resists it even even after a thousand reports and all the statistics reveal the truth. You still kind line of once. The streets should be wider. And if you're at a municipal position you know th that's your main. Your main weapon is throughput. How do you solve these problems problems? If not for that from two thousand eight to two thousand eleven I believe Houston built the Katy freeway. I kind of knew beltway. It's twenty six lanes worldwide with Asher you have to count you have to count four lanes of frontage roads on each side to get to that number and that's a Texas thing the freeway than it is long well it's got giant frontage roads on either side and I guess that's meant to keep traffic flowing but in Austin the giant frontage roads. Don't keep the main freeway from also being clogged and stopped all the time. Even frontage road I believe is a regional term and maybe that's not what they would call them in in Texas in Alaska the frontage roads are actually often called frontage road like the name it is. I think it's like that in Utah as well but back East I. I'm looking at it at a at a at a word regionalism Dialect Map They're called access roads much of Texas. And also the deep South They're called feeder roads in scattered areas around Houston so maybe these were defeated. Either roads their service roads service roads are the most popular term. That's rust belt up into New England. Pretty much the whole eastern seaboard. Florida Louisiana Office road is like it's different than a front row trying to think of it as a restricted access wrote. It's a service road like the kind of road that goes around an airport but inside the fence not outside the fence. I like on these surveys. We're one of them is. I've never heard of this concept because you have to wonder who those people are who are like I don't say drinking fountain or Bubbler. I'm going to check. I've never heard of this concept but it's the same people that don't know who they're gonNa vote for until election. No To all of these options. I'm Seattle voter anyway. He spent two point eight billion dollars to them on on this massive project. Twenty six twenty six if you count the furniture and it is the widest freeway in in North America and as a result of all these new lanes commute times are now fifty five percent longer. What than they were really? Wow and you know. Methodology is a problem here because as you say cities are growing the reason why they're building these new roads us because there's new growth there's new development right but there's a feedback loop there to where the new lanes lead to new development whether you want it or not but some there's now been a lot of research into this and some of the study showed. There's almost perfect elasticity. If you add a certain amount of Carleen you will add a certain the amount of carleen usage and it's in some of these studies. It's about one to one like you. Can you know how much you're going to be adding because stuff. Just GonNa keep keep running at capacity good and it's a free good now in contrast to the city of New York which has only grown about one million people from nineteen nineteen forty to nineteen to two thousand ten the population of the United States in one thousand nine hundred forty one hundred and thirty two million and end the population. Today is three hundred thirty million. That's that's it's trebled speaking to people for whom it's probably probably sixty five one hundred billion trillion billion or you think sixty five great dino I think sixty five people sixty five sixty five inhabits on or their survivors drivers traffic problems except for the abandoned cars sitting on the freeways right when the Zombie. Can Siphon gas from in order to power your generator to consolidate your water her. But that's extraordinary. All that growth is has presumably happen. Didn't happen in New York so it happened in the West right and a place like Houston in one thousand nine hundred eighty was just a couple of tumbleweeds and and like a dry goods store and an emission agai chewing on a piece piece of grass in a rocking chair. Maybe a Spanish guy in a syrupy selling tamales they had they had a messed up relationship but it with a love relationship. They didn't know how to say that they loved each other but now Houston is win. The top five largest cities in the country might be number four. And that's an almost impossible planning problem. I think city planners are now getting used to the idea that you cannot plan more than a decade in advance like you just long-term planning can't exist because the problems are too complex and chaotic and unforeseeable which is which is also a huge problem because most of these infrastructural improvements need about a ten year lead time like Seattle right now. All of the problems we have right now could have been addressed addressed by good planning ten years ago and the planning that we were doing ten years ago was trying to fight a problem. That was already ten years old and now we're starting to build the thing that would have made Seattle inhabitable ten years ago but it's no longer. Are you talking about Light Rail. I I wish induced demand was also applicable in light rail terms because our light rail ridership is growing but not exponentially. Eventually the trains are fuller. The debate about Light Rail is pretty relevant here. Because you're starting to see in our area. You're starting to see pushback on the the idea of induced him and what was once. counterintuitive is now becoming. Well enough known that if it's not affecting policy yet it's at least starting to come up at the meetings right. It's coming up in the committee's there's always always some pencil head waving some papers in the air and have you seen this article on cross cut. There's GonNa it's getting widespread enough through kind of the techie. Jackie Internet sat again again. Future Ling's who live in. Tasmania like cross. Cut that a look long municipal. Suppose as I'm sure you all know but all wired or whatever people are kind of aware now. There's this weird counterintuitive thing with traffic and possibly it's been oversold a little and getting a lot of pushback from say the Cato Institute reason magazine. A lot of these libertarian. Egg heads are saying. Well this arguments terrible because it's going to be used to build big light rail boondoggles we gotta we gotTA. They kept us while we can. Here's Nicholas Cage. whose hair is a bird? Argument is invalid so their objections are sometimes. I've just methodological like like you know this research is incomplete right. Sure this was awful in Houston but maybe it worked in Dallas or this only looked at interstates if you also look at state highway this kind of ticky tack fouls but is there. Are there examples of Light Rail. I mean obviously light. Rail's a boondoggle where you build it but expensive but does it does it not pay so does not induce demands the pro. I think Light Rail I think light rail induces demand. But you're Seattle Chattel Hippie in Salt Lake City in the nineties they built a they built the beginnings they build the backbone of a pretty Nice Light Rail Grid and no one wanted it right. Everybody talked about what an awful idea this was and only this out of touch liberal city government could get away with this in common sense Utah. That knows the famous liberal liberal government of Salt Lake it is. It's a loophole in the yellow belt. I guess whatever that's not the right expression the Austin it's it's a loophole in the the Bible Belt is that right. The buckle of I mean buckle of the Bible Belt as much that would be fun to sign and play. It was the center though that it would be the bulwark of it. That would the bulwark buckle of the Bible Belt. I feel like there's no. There shouldn't be any traffic in Salt Lake because the streets are one mile across and no one lives there. Thank you Brigham. Young for making sure that a covered wagon turn around at any point at the intersection of First Avenue. First Avenue and First Avenue the next block the next crosswalk will. We'll be one mile that way because all the city blocks are going to be the size of a sugar beet field for any future. Lean it hasn't been to Salt Lake. It is really a sight to behold there are a traffic issues in salt. Lake congestion is beginning and so in the nineties. The seemed like a terrible idea to start putting train light light rail but they're kind of got Mormon conservativism where he Mormon Industriousness Tae. Here's something else we can do to make this uninhabitable place Nice. We found like spacey trains. And so do they have like broom fights. I mean how do they. How did they resolve those issues? They hit each other with with with with rascal sticks. Actually everybody gets out there. Rascal beater now. The thing about Salt Lake is it actually is like this. Incredibly Liberal Island rights takes pride on how about. It's you know it's great. LGBT culture and so forth. I should say that Salt Lake has an extremely progressive homeless housing program. Ram Yes they they. They build houses for cheap. The first places to have a However housing first model? Yeah and it worked there in in places where building new housing is cost prohibitive. It's trickier but any who different boring omnibus. We're doing this boring. Yeah so they put it in the light rail and I think there wasn't deuce demand people were like. This is a train. This is cool right. Ridership immediately outstrip outstrip projections. And now. It's a beloved city symbol. It's been expanded to the airport ahead of schedule. It's been expanded to the university. Had scheduled extensions have been built all the way down onto the county north of it and the county south of it so that's regional heavy rail essentially and the and the one of my big platforms in in in advocating for light. Israel was that rail is cool. Don't like taking the bus. But they love taking the train. Unfortunately Seattle only has one light rail line and currently still a backbone like Salt Salt Lake City in one thousand nine hundred seven and it takes fifty five minutes to go from the airport to downtown. So it's so you really have to commit to. They built it at grade through the poor parts of town. Yeah because they could get away with it and now they're building it in tunnels through the Nice white part of town. Yeah something's never changed. Robert Moses the the heart of the libertarian objections to the canoe conventional wisdom on induced demand. I cannot be resolved by methodologically because they are fundamentally philosophical. Blah the libertarian. Take care would be. Hey sure the these new are still crowded. But there's eight new lanes that's more people out doing what they want to do. Yes independent lead making choices. Doing their business okay. Maybe they're going to costco three times a week instead of one. That's good right as American. Exactly that's their God given right. And that's that drives the economy. You know this this idea of the city as as a busy anthill. That's still seems very futuristic to us that's what we want but those is busy metropolis by all have have like trains. Moving around in lecture track like Fritz Lang never had traffic on his on on his weird elevated tunnels Zoom Zoom. So on the one hand. You've got them saying. Hey this is clearly what the market wanted. Therefore it's right and I think it's crowded that's also right right right you know. There's an invisible hand making traffic and you gotta respect it so I don't Wanna I don't WanNa introduce my dystopia in philosophy into this already Super Boring podcast. We're really talking but my But you know. I think you don't have to look very far into the future to see that these to see two things Self driving vehicles and a growing monopoly on control over self driving vehicles vehicles because self driving vehicles are I mean. There's a reason that Google Apple Uber that all these companies are are currently pouring a lot of resources into building the technology of self driving. They want to get there. I want to get their first because there is the opportunity to have a monopoly control. You think it will basically be infrastructure. It'll be like it'll be like okay utility but it will meet who runs our self. Driving cars privately owned utility privately owned companies that are using publicly funded roads four or a hat but effectively having a monopoly over them. So if you can no longer drive into a city in your car. If you're libertarianism is at least truncated when you get within the city limits because you can't have self driving cars and manually driven cars on the same roadways after a certain point because the efficiency if grandma is looking it has turn signal on in his driving around town you know. You're you're superfast robot cars can't it's too expensive to deal with her systems can only repack them in if everybody's a robot right. So but once those robots start if the if global governments have not have not regulated access assess than what you have is Google controlling her or uber controlling who has access to the roads right or they could merge informed Guber goop guber Google control everything. But then they're going to say if your credit rating is below six hundred. You don't get a car and at that point. The only way you can move around a city is if if there's a public transit network that shares this this burden and of course there's no right now. There's no plan in place to tax these these private companies to pay for the roads that they're exploiting because it's not happening yet but governments are thinking this foreign advanced ten years from now we're building tunnels and whatnot and twenty. Eighty six lane freeways ten years from now there. It's possible or within twenty years that the roads congestion that's going to be completely different equation. That's dominated by this very small number of of private contractors and without some regulation without some government oversight public option. Sean if you will right up either both a public option and also some sense of some sense that these companies are are using doing what we want. They're doing what we want but they're also exploiting Our roads right wizard of the the day that you have to park your car out in federal way because you can't drive into town and all you can do is either choose between a light rail that takes an hour. And a half. Or get hovercraft from apple that will get you either in five minutes but you need a six hundred fifty credit rating to rise Ari Cato Institute like we'RE GONNA have to regulate these things like once. These are effectively the only way of moving around be because is it requires a system right you can't you can't it has to be an integrated system well. I mean even in our time. The arguments around induced demand say a greater the market is being served. The market is not aware of things that cities in fact the market is running counter to things that cities will want on the larger scale. That want to reduce sprawl sprawl for environmental reasons. Though you know they want to reduce pollution they want to reduce reliance on fossil fuels. Electric cars. Don't Pan out off. It is is not the only factor right and convenience is not the only factor cities may not want to develop a certain place where people would wanNA drive if there was a costco. You know they're maybe well that's the argument that we don't lose all the farms right around the city just because people want to build big developments there so the question becomes do you trust trust these technocrats to make the right planning decisions than I do. I've always been I I. I was always sitting in the front row in elementary school. We raising my hand. I I making sure. All the rules got enforced at recess. I like to be told what to do by the smarts one of the things that one of the things about old school liberalism is that you do fundamentally believe that people to go into public service are people of goodwill now. That isn't maybe necessarily which ever been true or or certainly isn't true now the charade that the whole thing runs on them but I know a lot of people in public service and almost to the to to the person I believe there are people of goodwill who've dedicated themselves to To the public good and so I still do believe that. A technocrat who's WHO's working in a in a you know in public planning isn't there for money and I don't think they're there because they're power mad or ideological even but I thought you'd be the rebel like I thought so you don't feel like your Your rebellious rock and roll character makes you. I'll do do what I want. The market is right libertarian. No but I am a rebel in the sense that when you build your super system I'm still going to drive my seventy two corvette with no mufflers right into into the heart of it park on the sidewalk and go into a coffee. No guber is GonNa shut you down immediately let them try and that concludes induced demand entry. Six three seven dot easy one seven zero four certificate number three eight nine three eight in the omnibus future leans in the unlikely event that social media still exists in your era facebook book twitter instagram.

All my best content. I had to go to instagram separately to look at your content and it hurts physically. Because you don't post there I used to have my facebook and twitter linked where everything the thing I put on my twitter. We're on phase two and then I was told don't do that. You're annoying people who don't want on facebook but the problem is I don't post on facebook anymore so all those people people are over there yelling about the economy and talking about white but white national all or nothing my tweets are a gas and they expand to fill any social media platform.

"It's no secret that the best part of any social gathering or any special event is that beautiful moment where someone proposes a toast. And I'm not talking about just the bread here folks. I'm talking about that. Move where you take glass who extended into the air and you see something kind generous dignified and true about your closest closest friends and Family Sam Adams agrees and that's why these started the toast. Someone campaign created to encourage all of us to take a moment and through a simple toast to let more people in our lives know that we care about them and to remind everyone that life is better with dignity. Better with respect and better better together your buddy. Mr Bob transmitting across America. It's not always read these stories about nightmares and again I've had doctors tell me and I've been diagnosed with PTSD. Because I've been jumped. Few urban jumped jumped attack. I'm house broken into lots of stuff like that. Death threats. Debbie said at at this story. Scientists have identified the part of the brain that causes bad dreams which could possibly lead to a way to prevent them. They remain higher activity in the left hand. Side of the brain brain is we have bad dreams. Research took brain scans at participants who also described their dreams bad or angry drink profound associated with an imbalance in front brain activity that that movie watched where the Guy Climb the rocks freecell Russo. They looked to his brain out stuff in his brain. How am I gonNa say what it is because you watch the documentary? How much does it Costco? Brain looked at what I think about like. How can I get something like in my brain when I was having those seizures They did a thing on me but it was just for that but they you say they're trying to figure out how to how to work. PTSD people couple of things have been suggested to me one. There's like low dosing LSD. That's legal. Yeah Yeah I mean I. I'm not there people man. No it's not even like like like acid. I don't know dose. Listen we're Chris. Oh non-drug culture now. I know I've never smoked a cigarette much less than what we'd so. What does it do you see what that's called in doctors will administer it what does LSD micro microdosing? We'll make people feel sharper ends part of fighting. PTSD they've done it with people that come back from war and it helped it actually helps them. My pettiest awesome so bad sometimes and I even eight saying 'cause I didn't fight for our country got beat up whatever. It is a different level. Did you see our ignatio her brain skin because she had that just I answer and the bomb went off and like twenty. Two of her fans died. I mean it was really her. Brain has been scanned since then and it shows where the PTSD is. Yeah so I mean it's you don't have to gone to war. I remember the first gun hill to my head and I got whooped with a gun. Pistol whipped feel it. Yeah I was like like oh how about that. Just got hit with the gun but then I got a jump to work anyway. Bunch of crap but I struggle and that's why almost ordered wind the other night. I told you almost I've never uh-huh drink alcohol because everybody's died from my family but I was like man I need something to take some sort of edge of me right because I go to bed and I'm just like um I mean I walk around like that just as tense as can be. I don't know man. A brain looked at or something. Feel good maybe someone to take you on AH experiment you wake up and I'm speaking French. LSD Promo. I'm not the microdosing. Oh you something. I've read about them doing with vets and stuff when or people who have been had some serious issues with PTSD. But anyway I was like figure out. What's on my brain 'cause I've I? It's terrible because I get sick. 'cause I'm not sleeping like I wake up and I am I am I am I. Dreaming is been breaking a mouse. And we're about to get murdered after walk around and touch things in my house and take my hand and touch the counter and touch the couch. I know I'm nutty. But maybe they need just need somebody in the bed with me. Well I mean you oh this your no. It's not like a meeting hall. It's the NERDY meeting Goldberg. Stand on the street anyway. Our Gab Dot food bowl show. I was reading this story about wedding photographers. Oddly expensive right yeah the Fr- yes slough like things like that so you don't think it would be that much be like flowers cake photographer that like eats up your budget wedding. Photographers revealed the red flags. They see it ceremonies a signal doomed marriage because they go to a lot of wedding and they're like these are the things that we see it. We go oh this weddings pre marriage not gonNA laugh ready it whether there was proper cake etiquette meaning sometimes one of them usually the groom will force cake all over the others face and embarrassed barest. UPSET THEM I've seen it happen handful of times and I talked to a bunch of photographers. A most. The Tha that's a signal that the relationship in the last longtime the take the Kagan slamming their face. And as you do that. Shut my wife's face and she did not want it. She wanted a classy hearing your mouth. But I've told you for years if you don't shove the cake you're a sissy and you. You set a bad precedent for the relationship the marriage. So you've gotta shove and my grandma even told me I know you're not GonNa disappoint me. Your disappoint me. And you're gonNA shove that cake and I shoved that cake. Was She mattia. She's not happy not abby for how long about thirty seconds I was like. It's your wedding over it let's go. Let's be romantic so sweet sweets as Gabriel tongue to get over like I didn't tell you she's really mad that you didn't know I can tell you if I'm really gonNA work from mega worse number. Two this tigers are saying if these happened happened during the wedding bad news because I see a lot of doomed marriages having an outdoor wedding. Oh yeah why. Yeah well one of the Tiger said that if it happens at a park even specific parts they go to where people are doomed park last minute Mike. Some of these outdoor places. You can get a lot easier than you can some of the indoor places and they go well just shows too. They probably weren't working hard to get that venue just like we had to say Green Gavitt thrown together other professionals China and say distrusted. Any sort of outside venue. We might get married outdoors here. You're all set. Yeah Hey congratulations. One and outdoor wedding. Yeah I did. And why vetoed shipped a church. Finally so if you have a bad fight on the day of the wedding they say. Weddings are notoriously stressful for the bride and groom having a terrible fight. Tends that'd be a bad omen on the day sometimes after Photoshop. A smile and people say because it'll be fighting so bad that's hilarious. Thorough photo shop is smiling. I think you do that. Well those three there. And so. If you're three for three our sympathies he's there you have it Delano how are you good. How are you there she is what's going on with you? What do you WANNA say? I was calling in because my husband and I last night went to Lowe's to get some paint to paint our baby nursery and and we thought that our gift card had forty dollars left on it and we had eighty three dollars in our Indian total and the lady eighty ran the gift card and it came back and the receipt print it out and she threw a gift cards and I was like wait a second with their money left. And when my husband and I elected are Indian that gift card balance there was four hundred and twenty five dollars on this gift card idea where it came from but my husband. It was like we should be like lunchbox. Go back in and spend all the money before disappears or find out what happened. What what did you do? We called my dad if he was playing a nice funny prank on me He wasn't and we've just kinda been processing it and and you still have the car they'll have it. Yeah go spin it. What are you waiting on? You are right. You should've spent last night. Gosh I'm in four hundred twenty five dollars on it lows right now. It doesn't matter by it and then you can take it back and they'll give you and then it's a legit gift card. What's your take back? Where knowledge already? How did you get the Gift Card to begin with Elena so we bought new appliances for kitchen and got the gift card as is a rebate? Okay and the Gift Card was only supposed to be a hundred and fifty dollars but instead it's we have four hundred twenty five and so he was like eight hundred. It was it was really five. Hundred dollars is what happened. They got a five hundred dollar rebate on accident when it was supposed to be one hundred and fifty guess what that is the world telling you. You've been good people. Oh you deserve it. Go spend it by whatever by a ladder by a wheelbarrow plants for your garden by cement. It doesn't matter just spend spend it. Yeah we were to do for fridge okay. So this is what I would do. Okay Okay Yeah you take the card back to lows. Do not be honest about it for your say stop still. There're Arab business. Let me let me speak on this. You take the car back and say hey. Would you mind checking to see how much is on this this card and then you have them check and if they're still four hundred dollars on it you say that's what I thought. We called and check the balance online last night. And all of it's coming back thing. It has four twenty-five can can I. I'll buy one hundred fifty a salvage now delaying it comes to this. Because are you going to feel guilty about it if you spend it and buy something and you never really wasn't your money. Will there be guilt alter now. I don't think so. See then let me recommend a solution because it seems like you're going to spend and I don't know that I would. I'M NOT GONNA act like Mr All all right all the time Mr New but what I would do is. Let's say you have a four hundred bucks left okay. Water hose now wait. Why don't you you go and spend half of it and take half of it and spend it on something like organization in your neighborhood or in your town that could actually use it and then spend the other two hundred it on yourself like if instead of just putting it on yourself go? There's got to be like an animal shelter or there's gotta you can buy well. That's not winter anymore. Yeah why don't you split in half APP that way. It's only half the guilt. But somebody's getting the they could build a bunch of hammers for habitat for humanity. There you go by yourself a riding lawn mower. That's more than that's expensive. That's all I'm going to tell you that some more than this. Hey that would be judge common sense. They you have an extra gift card bobby like yes. Judge Commonsense coming through. I feel like you would be like ooh. Somebody gave me this way too much. Join Wjr am I supposed to have this and who knows the person working at Lowe's might be like I don't know how to refunding that money. It's yours just just take it and then they gone but if you look it's like I'm like say it was a mom and pop shop something like that. I mean. Just 'cause lows is big. I think people feel better about rally be different. Because the businesses more success I think sometimes in our head we do justify it because if that's if it was a mom and pop they may be depending on that four or five hundred dollars so you may feel like ooh. Let me wrap this up on the. Let me wrap it all up here with the logo. WHO's Abo- here's go back say? How much is on this card? They're going to say four hundred Bucks Hall. They're going to say to them. I I think that there was a mess up in my rebate. They're GONNA go will. It is what it is and then if it is spent half of it on something good and half of it on yourself. That's what I would say. Delano were you. Please update me as to what you guys do. Yeah okay. That's what I would say. Thank you so much. Thank you for sharing your story with us.

What do you if you're trying to get your kids to eat something healthy? Stop calling healthy like don't refer to it as healthy then and they think. Oh it's probably not gonNa be good because Broccoli's healthy and that doesn't taste good so just say oh. This is so yummy. So start using the word a Yummy An awesome and eliminate healthy supposed to like trick them. I don't know they did a test on a bunch of preschoolers and worked. Well I guess if you're feeding them healthy things things and they don't like it. They would assume healthy with anything. They don't like right right even as adults. You can tell you that to your husband's out there to in real good point I could preschoolers Yami. I'm so tastes good. Even though it doesn't so that's the tip that is the tip and I'm start like with my son if I stay healthy. He's not that turned on turned on to eat it. But if I say this will make your muscle strong. I know that works for him because he wants wants to grow muscles. So that's what I use for him but for my daughter I'm GonNa Start saying Yummy I was looking at your interest story and I saw him standing on the wall getting taller. He is has Z..

Amy Let's open the mailbox mailbag. What's the question? Hey Amy I was hoping you could pass the question along to bobby show. I'm currently dating. I have noticed so many guys go to line as let's grab a drink when cleaning a first date as someone who doesn't drink very much it's tricky to navigate. I know bobby doesn't drink at all. So what does he do. When the GO-TO first date suggestion is to grab a drink? Thanks Samantha I'LL SAY I. I think let's grab a drink as the standard. Hey not too much pressure. You have to invest too much in the tonight. It's easy get to know you line. I don't think that's a weak way out actually. I think that's kind of A. Hey I'm going to respect you and say hey let's just have a drink you you can get out of this pretty easily accents feel about that. Yeah no I think that's true and I think an easy way to kind of flip that is instead be like like sorry. I can't do it at night but I can meet for coffee or you mean if there's a drinking yeah if you're wanting to not do drinks that's an easy switchover to still do drinks during the day so for me. It was more about the question at first like let's do drinks like to me. I don't think it's a cop out at all. I know that's a standard line. That's not a cop out at all but also for me. I don't drink much to me. I can't do coffee a lot of times so I'll just go and I get there early and I get a fake drink because I don't mind talking I don't drink but then like why don't you drink and I'm like well. Everybody died from. I'm drinking and drugs and I don't WanNa do that. I know that's not for me and if you go. Hey I don't drink. They start to act differently around you and I'm not going to drink than either. No that's not the point of it point of it is. Let's have a good time to talk. Most people can have a drink. And that's Kinda the lubrication to make talking easier. I would me what I do in early. Get a fake drink. Tell the bartender. Hey keep them coming. Don't mention that it's not a drink. Sometimes they'll go. Hey what are you drinking. And that's something like all. I'm just taking it easy tonight. I keep it alight. Just say things and then you can say it if you feel comfortable but I always find if I do say I don't drink that it turns into more of A. Oh it turns into about me. I don't want that. Yeah so the question gene. How do I do it? I get there early order deal with the bartender. I say hey I tip you good and backside and then they just keep them coming sometimes mutation drink album slow strong and drink and go wrong. Just tell people things in their mind feels that way I mean yeah. It's not the guy being cheap a little busy and I really WanNa pay all the dinner listeners. Get a drink. It'll be a lot cheaper. I don't feel that way but I'm the Guy Morgan number. Two I do. I do almost for furthering because I almost don't want them to buy me dinner because if I don't don't like them let our do Kinda feel bad that they bought me dinner and I'm like really want to go out with you again.

This may be far out but I wondered if you could put in a word for me to have bobby play at my reception my four year old and I listen every day. Okay and it would make his day just as it would be icing on the cake for my special day Pong. Imagine if I played at their wedding like what the people who had no idea what the show was I would think she said August twenty twenty. Listen No I'm not congratulations on your wedding by the way. I'M NOT GONNA play a wedding because people that would be like what's happening here. Why is this guy doing dopey funny songs for the wedding? I have to go to the wedding November. I don't have to go but I've never been a destination wedding and often feel the very selfish sure because I got to take a day off work and then pay money to go to a wedding your mind but fun okay but I never been so. You're probably right. I've learned a lot of things in my life over the past ten ten years that most of the things. I've been arguing about wrong. The only thing that I've been right about all my life is home. Alone is not a Christian movie other than that. I've been wrong many things who's going to that. Our friend Mike Destination Sweating. I'm going you're going. Amy Wow I told Eddie. He needed to go because he met his wife at a raging idiot concert band and I I can play. We would actually play that reception but we'd play a funny song like somewhere somewhere during the ceremony. I mean maybe we'd married him through song. See Him I'm warning y'all to do something like that. I mean that could be cool but yeah I don't know you were going to Mexico to ex-girlfriend text ex- me and was like. Hey I got an invite to this wedding. Oh and Alba's like yeah and she was like should I go. Who Good Question Luce ex girlfriend Lindsay? Okay wait to the wedding. You're talking about right now. Yeah F- her. No no no. No no never know what I'm not allowed to go. I think he's still fun if she went. 'cause bobby's already reserved for plus somebody else. I mean I'm acting being like I'm confidently going. I have to we have my husband and I still have to figure out with the kids but now it's like okay I i. I'm just putting it out there that I mean yes ongoing going. So and then if Bobby's going makes it easier because we figure out the whole work thing was bobby fun okay Wow what are you gonNA do. Well a first of all first of all I Rueda him. Invite her no no Because he's putting bobby an awkward spot. He's closer to bobby than he is with her. And you gotTA say Bros.. Before this is okay here. This is ullmark text message from her. She was going to Mike's Wedding and I say yeah she said I don't know if I should go or not and I'm talk about me or because it's in Mexico. I never been to a crazy way like that and I said to her. Do you feel like you're super close to them. Don't feel pressure to go. That's good because because even Eddie close to them. He's probably not going to go in that. You would like yeah. And they've been to a few shows and they sent me an invite. I just don't know then. I didn't respond because because again I don't have anybody right now that I'm going to take but you're out there with and again it's a longtime who knows it is kind of weird though It's weird situation. Oh are you worried that you're going to be out there and it's paradise and you may sparks marksman fly again. No I mean it'd be awkward for somebody if like I'm there with someone or she's there with someone I'm not that's you and I. I like the way you put it like you. You let her down gently like don't feel pressure to go. You didn't come out and say no don't go but really the meaning of that text was look. I think it's probably a better. You stay back it really. Is it really. I think there was probably a touch of that but mostly it was like. Don't feel pressure bad. Eddie's close to of an Eddie minor techs. Yo Dude what are you thinking Because again they're closed and their own unless you are still really cool. I'll text them for you. I was a bad thing etiquette. Groom so that's the rule if you invite one accu cam the other yes absolutely. You've got to pick which one you want. You can do this well. That's that's the benefit is that Lindsey super cool whatever is happening like Lindsay's cool. She's coolest he's is. It actually does go. It'll be good drama. And she goes and she has a dude and I'm there by myself just like exactly you know pull them. There's nothing happening. You can throw spit. What does that mean no?

Empty with the gaslight on it is worse for your car because like little stuff. That's messed in the fuel tank and get stuck in the filter alter and so you need to keep it gassed up because you can do with severe damage to your car. I've I've read on empty all the time he hadn't thought about crazy I don't run empty because I'm scared I'm going to guess mostly and I'm Jay. I'm pretty conservative and everything that I do that way time gas. I just bright. Here's what I envisioned. I'm on the interstate. And there's an accident and everybody's just sitting there and I'm about to run out of gas and then I run out of gas on the interstate and there's nothing for me to do. You can't get anywhere. Wow I'm not that forward thinking oh I'll dream about that stuff. My husband fills up at half a tank. Like if it's half a tank it's empty and I'm like and then so when he gets in my car and he sees that I'm happy to hang he's like you haven't filled up. I'm like no. Does he get an at times. Yeah he's mostly the one that fills up my car. Actually he'll get like that's something there's been months over. I don't even go to the guest. It's pretty Christmas. Yeah because he knows whether kids. Yeah somehow somehow somewhere in the week or so. He'll end up driving my car at some point and if he does it just gets filled up well beautiful. There's also the thing were you know. Sometimes you just can't can't afford gas in your car can you. Maybe you can keep it at that point because like I said it's bad for your car. There's a lot of little things in their house sediment and stuff gets through it and Mess it up and then boom you get towed gotta get repaired talking thousands of bucks folks. I saw this story about these. Two students hacked their school to get out of taking tests. We think about that. I mean funny but bad to fourteen year olds fourteen in New Jersey tax. Their school's Wi fight network so they could get out of taking test at work until the school trace things back to them and they were both arrested for criminal computer activity. Wow so they figured out a way to hack into the school's Wifi router and shut down the Internet since their tests on computers Internet was needed. No wife I make no test say no no Wi fi. Sorry hey listen they did some. That's smart and they beat the system for a while it's a legal need to do is start using their smarts for good This is what I read this story by the way they were both arrested charged with criminal computer activity and conspiracy to commit criminal computer activists Juvie. Well I don't know what's going to happen. This is what I I would do is I would say. Hey because I think there's a lot you can learn from people that are doing things in a different way and then even in a legal way like you go. Hey okay well instead of putting the kid big house us like teachers did their shorts. Exactly how you did this so we can learn how to actually build against things like this. You'RE STILL GONNA get in trouble. You'll get a free pass for sharing but it's not gonna be as harsh right. You know most times to like to find bad guys you have to go and talk to other bad guys and get them to so credible nobody know what can yeah. I haven't seen in a long time. But yes Leonardo di Caprio he's in jail and they take him out in the FBI or whatever hires them well one. Yes yes at the end. That's what happens. Sometimes they take that mob guys they have to go to other mob guys. It'd be like tell me what happened. And then the gophers you're blaming a mob guys light his whole life but you have to go to bed people and get them to rat another bad people even though they may not be the most credible so you go these hackers and be like. TCU Hack this fix it for us and you still get in trouble community service them. Yeah that-that's pretty as a parent party would be like impressed by your kid.

That's Baja Mar dot com B. A. H. A. M. A. R. DOT COM Hey what's up nerd fam how you it doing. It is December thirty first New Year's Eve and I just want y'all know we are thinking about you but also we are busy partying traveling. So we're GonNa hit you with some of the best of this year's ner deficit to fill that void before you go party tonight so Enjoy I mean I guess you just jump right into it for anybody who's never heard of it or don't know what what we're talking about. What is Afro Afro anime well? is really based on like the first part of the word Afro so like when people hear Afro enemy. You don't WanNa think about a fro- like a hair apples more about that inspired by Africa taken from the African Lens so if you're talking about fighting with weapons you're going to look at African weapons wins if you're talking about martial arts you're not going to see a Jitsu you're gonna see like lamb or some sin although Senegal wrestling techniques. You can see Africa techniques in the Afro so basically Africa inspired in terms of Lor Techniques Magic Juju in an annemie kind of a medium which is like you know when someone is angry. Have not on the head. You know powering up some of those things it's You know we in creating the name. It was kind of like it's very much. African dice. Bork but we we also we're GONNA give Vino shouts out to the people that kind of you know brought us to the John. Relax so it wasn't like we're we're GONNA create a name that completely disregards arts the contribution of those who did amazing work in anime that got us even thinking about creating stores in this media We're going to create a name that okay shows. Show show some love but then very much lets you know this is Afro animated. This is Work we're going to tell stories through the African Lens right so I used to always say that you know when you painting painting you have this like you know your oils and all that and so Adam as kind of like that you have all the drawing is the continent. You're drawing certain themes in the continent continent Pan African specifically injuring civically from Kenya specifically these different ethnic groups spirits. So when you talking about you know now has nine tails we. We have a tortoise in only shout out to a Nancy. You know what's talk more talk about an anti you know we talk my west African thing so you know that's sort what Africa enemy is. What are some of the because you both grew up watching anime? What were some of the titles? I guess that really got you interested interested in moving into animation. I mean I got a first foremost. Give a shout out to whoever made the decision On cartoon network to create okay to not you don't realize how you've affected entire culture of people. I'm talking about from hip hop to like animation to even comedy. It's so much ingrained into the culture. I just heard this new artist of value or something like that or the stallion as she had a bar and I was like hair yellow light. Go see this little talk. We care for so shout Tagami like I normally used to Russia Russia. Our homework done. You know just we can get in that primetime. Our from the condom wings Cowboy Bebop aren't just Samurai. Jack Rony catching the bottle. Side of Mass Larry. It'll be like that was like are like introduction and then we're like we started getting on the Internet more. Wait a minute. There's more losing that was the only anyway we could get it and then get your family involved. That's the funny thing that's one thing. We made a mistake a little bit then. Enduring communities huge huge huge. I mean the black dice work. They're looking for that. This is the time before podcasts. I This era. When we did this kickstarter this time before podcasts via content push push so it was just a different time before the facebook grows even came out and all that so really? Your community was critical. Well I if I can just jump in for the time you're talking about is very interesting because I feel like now. Black nerdiness is very mainstream but there was a moment not too long ago. Where black people on twitter figured out that we all liked? DB's some reason. We all thought we separately liked it or we didn't but you had the same dudes foods who was jogging dudes you know were also in two DB Z.. The anime fan yeah so like exploded on right around around the time that now we hear it in music and all that but there was a time when we thought it was like our little corner and it wasn't as in vogue or cool to just flaunt your nerdiness yet so now now we I think we are in an era now where people are just super seeking it out to especially when you got taste of it like Afro Samurai and Boondocks. I know people. There's something you you touched on that I think is is really important. I want to highlight. Because it's something we've talked about in past episodes where Hollywood especially especially coming from this personal spot in Hollywood is there is a regurgitation of just the same eurocentric stories. And then I think you were right. You did see that trend. You had cocoa. You had book of life and even then we're slowly getting but it's slow because like because they don't know these stories so so it's either they're waiting for a lat next creator to come and bring it or still it. You know what I'm saying like all the way you know as I get older get a road and h you know something. I've see among a lot of my. You know ethanol peers is their relationship with their ethnicity. And you know my mom's from Louisiana my dad's from Nigeria. And you know my dad gives me what it gives me but like you know the way I grew up I was never surrounded by a lot of other Nigerians like we went to this association meetings out. Of course out of you say you got to break it down. So then June's like to to meet in big organizations men and women associations associations with this so we're very you could be three years old and you know how to conduct the meeting because you talk to it like in corporate meetings. Nothing compared to what I had to sit through. You know we've been talking about Afro animate and there are certain things that stick out to the people as Afro anime. And you know. There's there's something we talked about during the break. I want to hear you display all the listeners but also why I think that's a good thing because you almost certainly goes negative but I think it's a good thing so we're GonNa Talk About Afro Samurai and the boondocks which are like the two. I think closest things people we'll think of Afro or if they do go ahead. That's the problem. That's the problem if you if you uh-huh quick and I will start by saying Google ripping out. Yeah I'll start by saying the good Shot the mcgruder. I don't think he realizes what met two young black kids who had a newspaper in their hand will go to comic section and Sierra presentation can we just take just take two seconds seconds to really land on that because you are so right I would. I would run into the Sunday funny and you know I. We had that one for better or worse I think the life family and shout out to him to. I'm not going to go so when I saw boondocks that changed my life because not only was it the black man but it also had anime style style to it so I was like. I'm in because you know really truly like to because before. That like animates me was just you know you're DB's you AKU show Tingey Muya so to see like an Afro done in an anime style. It just opened my eyes to a new world so yes. You're I totally know. No that is the good be like. Oh you changed my world. That's the best thing I'm GONNA say. Can I start Obi. Take the gloves off so here you go so first of all the starry boondocks. Yeah now I mean and I do this with African futures them now if you represent just the continent you actually represent the the GNARLIEST amount of black people in the world period so that representation is actually small by. Boone actually does not represent the dice. Bore like if you would actually start from a continental perspective just by numbers game. Yeah that's number one number two is like boondocks had this thing. Where like like loser was that one Dude with the With crew like like why would I create a character give life to an imaginary character. The hates on his own people I can do it like this is very important but you gotta understand the power of media. Yeah you gotTA understand the power of media this already is in our community community is already there now. We have a name for them. And let might take on that. Because you you would do a disservice for what boondocks was doing. Because yeah we created Uncle Ruckus but we still have sheriff Clarke out there. We still got a yeah. What about the person who's going to say because he's my man but like right right now in this? Yeah we have those so like I think that put like a word because there is this idea of like. There's this idea that like you know I feel like it is something to like. He was speaking to like this type of person that we always see and I think it's because like boondocks doc is like specific but I think that still drives home your point that it's only covering the small aspect of it. I'm the biggest biggest biggest. I don't know why I I say I don't want to say I guess proponent but I guess like I say this a lot where there's truth to let the media you're controlling and there was a point where like you know you did have certain folks you know I don't think I need to say which folks who would take that character and really like him for the wrong reasons our Yeah Yeah it's the day Chapelle off-camera laugh yeah. I know what I'm talking about. You know what I'm talking about. Yeah so so like I that is extremely valid and that was the main thing like I said like characters that can easily become these like caricatures. It got really hyper. And that's what I'm saying like you. Who you but? He was dipped in Japanese philosophy. I couldn't like those things like like. We're having this one individual of African descent fully involved in Japan. Dan Flynn Jabbar. Like as if we Abel's your boss. How how some Masai You keep going? Don't have traditions at a really powerful. That can help. Help you navigate the streets of whatever and so a lot of those things like Kinda showed this kind of the depiction that to me was very much very close to do the dea type individual put that in and I put in the same class. Because that's the thing is like like the fro- like like that's it. An- corn rows like like some dislike literally would African futures in all these like what we're trying to do. An independent creature trying to do is like even hair. Here's the most political thing that literally. We have so many different styles now whenever we try to have a character draw draw one of our characters they saw Killie. Remember that yeah just to kind of take you back when I earlier. When I talked about how everyone had to go through obese regimen of reading African literature we have to deconstruct A lot of artists a lot of artists who we worked with you know they were taught western styles maybe Japanese styles so when we brought them to an African story it would bring that with them and we had to literally break because it there would be a situation where there's a full description of how this character is supposed to look and the artists would come back with this random Stock African mask not even aftermath like a Tiki mask on the arm. And then some hugh type here and we're like no shirt by weight. That's yeah where did you get this from. This is like Adam Character Blake. Did you read the description. And then within one of our other characters we have have to actually stop one of our artists because we realized every scene. The character was getting lighter and lighter and lighter to the point where I was like. Whoa Bro? What is what is going on? He was like oh I don't know he he couldn't even answer me. He even realize I was just in like what was internal well. Yeah that's totally systematically and you see it all docs is part of that system and even depiction action of black woman. We're talking about boondocks. boondocks is not is not the interns. Like look I'm be real like like. Is there any depictions of black women. Ah Y'all that y'all could vibe with in boondocks exactly you're going to give me before. I ah we I mean if he and I have had these conversations that unfortunately also times when you are the first you bear the weight of your entire community. Well here's the deal now is is that in. Here's one where I'm going to come in for Aaron just for bid we are blessed that we and we have to admit Mitt that the three Nigerian sitting at the table knowing our culture where we from all those things we have to remember that a lot of African Americans aren't blessed with that information and so they have to go off of what they grew up doing. And I think that's why it's afros in And it's corn rows and I think like the the the caricature of it. That whole show is talking very specific. And I think you're right in due time especially now if you look at that compared to what we see in Black Panther the the the diversity in not only clothing like I almost wept when I saw for the first time on the big screen because we see growing up up display that being said Riley is a specific black person. PUGH is very specific lifers even who cedric Yarbrough. broers character the like whitewash black dude. Yeah varies it is an of. Yeah I mean right there in the name it is a show of caricatures and I think that was and I think the I think it wasn't for us in sense of like so you shouldn't I guess we should've mentioned that. This is a spoiler. This is going to be spoiler. Heavy for game of thrones if you haven't seen China it's kind of hard to tackle the series as we go into season by season without Spoiling some things. So that does bother you and you're planning to batter no no catch it and binge it before it comes out this weekend you might want to take a not a nightcap you might WanNa nightcap and also rain check. That's the word I was looking for it. If you're going back to what you were saying about having more mass appeal I think the fact that it is so grounded in reality and the politics of it all is what brings in in your mainstream viewing public. Because I think if they saw magic and dragons and all that right from the beginning they wouldn't believe it whereas now they're already invested in the reality of that world world so they're more apt to believe. Oh crap there's dragons you know that's the That's a good point because there are like I have talked to friends who are trying only get their friends into the show now and it's kind of being that same argument was like. Oh you mean the dragon shown us like to call it. The Dragon Show when we AH waited and worked so hard to get to the dragon right true well right before so for talking about the show right before. A game of thrones slot was true blood and I grew up like I was watching true blood. Same thing yeah. Vampires a lot of say yes S.. WORD PEOPLE IN BILL. Wow Wow I episode. Wow this is how much of a hyper nerd. I was like uh-huh boobs but don't but I agree because so I remember like everyone. Oh yeah everyone in my family. AM watched it. I remember like my I would go over and watch it with my cousin and her husband and it was like so I don't know so Raunchy but like they weren't into Scifi fantasy and that type of stuff like that type of war and I think because they kind of made it like. Oh No it's kind of like a soap opera slash drama slash just skin innomax essentially is what helps get it. Get it in and true. Actually come down a bit. After that first season that I got Hella magical off doggone x came down and then it was like theories and all the you know Hollywood stackhouse books. No Sim very similar. To the game of thrones the books are like those books are like you know. You're you're Y- lots of sex scenes very into it like it wasn't quite eight saves of Shantha. She wasn't quite there but it definitely was like the book club was like. ooh We're GONNA read about this type stuff and I only knew about it because I uh-huh funny enough. True blood was deep into my head. Space because the Personnel was dating at the time was a big fan of the Sukey Stackhouse Books Big Fan and you know she was from Utah. So you know that was real spicy their their whole whole of getting a little taste there. So yeah that's and I think yeah the same same thing where you just grounded enough reality and kind of almost in the same way the MC you kind of pulls in regular people where you just kind of find that other genre so there there is this at its core if you eject. All of. The magic came thrones is a show about politics and I think true blood was about kind of like a soap opera now but like that I hate using the term because we kind of I WANNA say like high so soap opera because there are like soap the opera shows that seem more mainstream than actual soap operas. But I think it's you just call it soap opera. Because you know the new thing now saying like with movies like hereditary the and and us should there be a term called elevated horrors like no. It's horror it's the same horrid just because you feel smarter doesn't mean you have to alienate people when you like it. So that's why was against calling it like high soap opera but like yes soap opera. Yeah but you're right Danny that that show ended and the people that watch true blood with horns on Sunday night. I was one of those people I mean. I watched her blood to the end. Even though I was like this show is not good anymore and I don't care I'm still watching it and yeah then what am I gonNa do with my Sunday nights boom Gema throat so moving onto season three pretty brutal pretty brutal. No just the redwood a big deal season three brings the red wedding which I think was another moment for people like neds execution. Where you're like? Oh man they can totally slaughter all the guys and wherever. I thought the story was going. Guess it's not who boy that was one of the most. There's nothing better than your book. smugness you know because like everyone who read the book knew it was coming and so like when people were freaking out over like nettles even Ready you ain't even right because even in the book it's so it really I didn't I never watch reading. I only read reading it. It it really sets you up you really think this is the moment they're coming together. We're about to Voltron and takeover and everything just goes south pass and I imagine the the show set the same thing up especially because once again though the I think. The popularity of game of thrones is. It's subverts our expectation of how heroes fight villains and how it's supposed to work and the red wedding is one of the several. I think it's so cool. Though that that will forever ever be in pop culture history red wedding. Even if you're not a game of thrones like you know what it's from and you know what it stands like what it means. I just think that's so cool to Oh bike. Forever altered film and media or like media history. Yeah the red wedding is a big deal and I do think that it hit all the show hot vice chairman. It was super superfund number. People never give him again. I was actually watching it with meg. Turney you I don't know if either of you know Meg But she was one of my co host on source fed nerd and she hadn't read the books and I had and so we're watching it and she's like on her phone and I'm like hey hey penitentiary. Now pay attention. I don't WanNa see this and I wish that I had action. Because she lost her mind But yeah that's that's how everybody was giggled like a full watching people's reactions because I went through it two years earlier when I read it in the books. There is always something to of like reading something shocking. 'cause like turn page. Oh my turn the page. What is this? I remember reading it when I was on lunch. Break from a job and I was like almost at the end of my thirty minutes and I was like no no must keep reading not done yet and I really WanNa touch on what Danny said because I think that is true. That is such a big big moment and something that when you can have one phrase or one word that will let everyone know like people who probably don't even watch game of thrones know. What red wedding was because it just blew up the Internet so everyone had to find out what this thing was And and are interesting. Because like I'd never watched the Star Wars trilogy growing up my just you know that just wasn't nothing. My Dad showed me because he'd never cared about it and I watched it maybe five or six years ago and it was interesting watching the movie knowing everything that was going to happen. Yeah I knew do that. DARTH vader was Luke's father. I knew that but to watch it play out it was cool does even see things whereas like Oh. That's where that's from. Yeah that is cool. That's super cool Yeah I mean. There's a lot of theories and what. Some people have expectations for what this season could entail. Do either of you have any theories or guesses of what you think. John's taken it all on its increased. John's taking it all and it's GONNA reset or we're going to have one huge apocalyptic event and my big kill. Mary is that brands going to go back. In time and net starts going to say no. I don't want to go to King's landing and nothing happens. Nothing it's going to be able to defend it because because remember ned believed in protecting the wall. So they'll they'll defend him. Because Ned Wilson the required it forces is just GonNa Reset everything where it's just gonNa be like remember. What was that one? I forget it was a horror movie. Where like every time you made a wish it would go bad and then like you were tortured and the end of the movie which she was like? I wish that one driver wasn't drunk on the job in nothing ever happened. I mean we could have something like that. There's a big theory. That brand is actually the night king because he tries to go back in time to be the guy that is the guy that's turned into the night king. I'm and then get stuck in that body and turn it in the night king. So there's two brands coexisting simultaneously but we have no reason to believe that two brands can coexist simultaneously continuously. which is Kinda? The debunk for that theory. If you will. But there's a lot of people in the brand is the night king camp or that brand is going to become the night king because wise the night king so intent on killing the three eyed raven. We don't I just don't want anything to happen to. Danny I feel very connected to as we share the same name and I play her. In a game of thrones roast at meltdown might be up on youtube somewhere. Oh you're enjoying these dope apps but even when it's a flashback clip episode. We still need to pause for a break. So we'll see when we get back. Hey Miles it's me Jack Right here right next to you next to me just like a work. Hey I wanted to join with you to tell people to tune into a very special episode special APP yeah of TD. The this is actually look. I know you saw the social media is at the Elliott. Oh she said what are these two juggernauts podcasting doing their when Mazda calls me up and they say miles. We know that you're a loyal Mazda owner we want to align with you Because you get it yet you know what. I'm willing to answer the call and help Ding help people understand. Understand the power of it so we did is. We actually got to record a special episode inside the new Mazda C X thirty where we talked about kind of like flow states and feeling alive and how we feel alive. What makes us feel lie? Yeah it was really doped actually record inside the car I got to press a lot of buttons and make them mad because of like. Please don't fumble around around here but I said I like to explore Nonetheless if you actually want to check out the first ever see X.. Thirty check it out AMASI. USA DOT COM slash IHEART. Or if you're trying China check it up. Irl then pull up to the local dealership today. All right welcome back to the best of narratives in part one. Hope you're enjoying it. Let's get back to the hits and it. Can you describe what yes okay So hector actually has flash cart like trading cards trading cards of every character. I kid you not every character that has ever appeared in the MC you including custody including side people that got killed in three seconds They're all here and he is placing them all out right now on our large desk Actually this is born even the we have the ancient while I'm trying to look for like a sigh. Any skewer while here's up records coors ceased and he has decimated next to Peter Parker Is that what we're call. That's what marvelous calling it is the decimation okay. Well let's take a quick second before we jump into this. There's two things I WANNA do. First up top. You might be listening. Wondering is this like another recap is like. No this is more of a hype episode. Cool as of right now. This Friday question mark Will I will as you're listening to this. I saw it last night the premier broker to that case I died and this is the last recording of my voice I did I did. Die Out on top correct as of right now. This Friday in game is coming out and this is just us kind of talking about our favorite moments. Really just a hype episode as You. You know you know. You don't need a structured everything that's you know. That's that's kind of that's what what fascist one True We. This is just a pure hype episode and also just to catch up and what better way. This is the perfect way to book in the last episode. We did what we did run through each however sure there were two movies that happened between the last episode and we have you and now so before we even jump into our favorite moments. Let's talk about what happened in how we felt about him. Because because because we counting infinity war too because we I guess we didn't talk about reading the so three movies tween that so after our episode Infinity War came home and that this was. It's funny because I feel like everyone at this table head strong emotions about it. I where we in the do we watch entre together. Danny I think we watched it together. Yeah you watched it before me and then again I feel like I invited. I have invited did you till like every premier but you were you like had rooms. You're writing it. Yeah I know I was busy. I'm not I'm not. I'M NOT GONNA blast you or anything. I was just APPs asking so I remember. That movie was a wild ride. Bad Infinity War. Where's the more I think about it with such a wild ride and everything had introduced? I feel like it did flawlessly and just the ending even though you kind of felt something like that like I didn't know the decimation mation what's going to happen but I knew something that would be such a huge cliffhanger. Since they was going to be two parts was going to happen right and it happened and even the way it happened kind of just shook everything up because they really did get us. They hit us with the debate there. Because you get thanos getting axed and and we're all we actually did do it or did it. Yeah Gotcha snippety snap It was Movies amazing in. It's such a fun like and then at the end gets depressing. But it's still such a fun. Ride is how you put it. I think is a perfect way to describe it if because it's just like it's just a huge victory lap for marvel. It's just I'm going look at ten years of characters that we built up like you care about talking raccoon you care about. You just met her in the last movie. You just met him back when the last movie. And you'RE GONNA be stoked to to see him show up you know on the field and and it was it handled it juggled characters and storylines so well he carried overtones from from previous movies. Like Thor Ragnarok which you finally get around to seeing. Did you dig it. Yeah of course so like that that TYCO. Itt Sort of version of four pretty much carried through into infinity war but it was also still like the mighty not that Ragnarok doors any different but this was like that thor and then all of his family gets killed at the beginning and now now what are the stakes and what does he have to deal with breath and it was It was mind blowing than easily. became my favorite Movie in the franchise thus far again. I don't think it's the best one but you have have to judge these movies on a couple different things in one of the things you cannot ignore as like. They're all building on one another. They're able to do thing that not a lot of movie franchises barely any in fact fact are able to pull off so flawlessly and even though they have flaws they course correct and they just kind of keep going so they yeah infinity wars not a normal movie. It is a movie that that takes is place after ten years of building one or two or three movies a year audio. CD on Hector on on Youtube. I'm holding up a picture of Carol Danvers. Amid uh-huh billion dollars a billion dollars to store windows actor has been punctuating his wits about you and I held up a picture of the ancient one from no one saw no one side And but yet no. Let's yeah. We have demo nervy cap tomorrow which I'll think homely I was I I loved it so much I mean everyone had like certain gripes but there are certain things that made me love it so much. I like that moment at at the end I mean at this point. We're we're in sport. Look we listen to listen where she stands up she stands out. Oh which where she. Ah I think the the the moment after that when the guys like all right monory mono which is such a classic movie trope and her just blasting him on my thank you because every time I met happens to them movie I just want that to happen and also for it to also have this meaning because you know that that was like spoiler. That was just definitely mirroring all all this all those like outright guys to debate me no I have nothing to prove to you. I'm in office your ATV talking head. What what do I get out of debating you? I think it's pretty cool to see a big movie super movie like this. The past couple of movies have provided me with some of my favorite movies and favorite moments. I've been watching stuff like thor ragnarok black hair like these movies are really unlike loving more and more and more in Captain Marvel's going to be one of those where I think it's a big deal that we saw a woman actually say that in a movie we like this this genre to go. I have nothing to prove to you to say that to a man that might not be a big deal to blotted dudes but I feel like it's going to be a big deal to a lot of young women. See that to go. Oh I can just say that great so biggest issue was people comparing it to wonder woman. I'm like they are literally not the same at all. They don't have the same origin story. They don't have the same Lake Komo characters like they're not even one was a period piece in. My opinion was awarded movie. It was a war movie like not the same at all and Kevin Feige. He said No. We're going to go in with her already. Captain Marvel already having her powers and like it just was so. I'm like that actually shows me that you're not as well versed in comics. If you're trying trying to compare to randomly just because they're women that's the only thing you have to compare it. I think it's a frequent thing People that are upset that the status quo is being challenged whether they know it or not. They subconsciously. Do that though pit a thing against another thing. I'm a big trekkie. Every time I talk about how I'm really enjoying star trek discovery. The new show people always jump jump in and let me know ads. Not as good as the Orville and I'm going well then do you really like the Orville. Are you really learning lessons. On how to better person from shows like that or you just trying to dunk dunk on my thing you know and make yourself feel better about your thing by by pitting two against each other when you don't have to do that when the new star trek show was announced and who's going to have a black female lead lied about. I saw a lot of people online. Go Yeah we'll deep space nine did it. And I'm like yeah. That was twenty years ago. Yeah we're not done making movies with black leads or making shows with Blackley just because they did it and it premiered in nineteen ninety-three like blade. Movies are done blade. Movies are great and we should give credit to blade for being the sort of the movie that really jump started Hollywood going. Let's make a bunch of super comedy movies but blade is not on my table right now and that's a problem so we need a new blade like we're not done with black superhero characters. Just because three blade movies were made for me. It was just like there Carolyn Caroline Diana could not be more different to even their films shouldn't feel the same period. There shouldn't be the same character and they don't they the only thing that's the same as that they're both the first female character of respective. Were a thing. But it's annoying to me that one had to be better than the other and all these conversations conversations so same thing happened with him because you know she's needs to be kept in Marvel Oh Lectures and better like ephermeral better. It's shut up. I'm very happy that they They both exist. I'm happy they both exist but that they all cheered each other on like Gal. Gadot cheered on Brie. Larson like tweeted about it. You Know Brie Larson like cheered on Zachary Levi's exactly Levi chaired on bring Larssen. They're adults that are making a lot of money too so they don't actually care about all of your gross. Yup I like the bread comes uh-huh but a whole different set of breadcrumbs. Because I sniff those civil war breadcrumbs and because it was so very similar to what happened in the comic civil war just heroes trying to do some stuff causing mass mass destruction in the government and one thing I do like about civil war both in the comics and the movies is it's the most host grounded thing to ever happen in comics. Yes wrong with this. Go down without the government trying to get involved and I think it also flips it on on the viewers and the readers. Because we you paper you think cat would be on the side of the government absolutely and then it and him. I'm not being on. The side of the government is such a strong message. Yes because yes everyone thinks that caps this agent of the government. He's like no he's an agent of good. Yes which means that if the government is also the fact that he is willing to go against the government is the most American thing. Yes I do and I think people often forget that I feel like in the grand scope over like yeah. Everyone thinks that you know patriotism is being subservient to who whoever's in power in the government and that is not the case we were we were built on. You know defiance so like the fact that he's like no. This isn't right this this is not this is this is not good. I have to stand against it and someone like Tony. Who has always been like the opposite where he's doesn't like control he doesn't like he is on the side of government because he's the status quo? Yeah it's such a beautiful. Just even when he goes against the status quo which is is the first iron like the beginning of him being iron man he know the suit and I are one. It's me I don't trust anybody with my weapons except for me. He still has this mentality of like. Well how how can I change the. He's not trying to affect the status quo. He's just sort of controlling it on his own. By you know by his own means genital mean like an end in this movie and we can just skip aunt monroe quick. This is a great film. Aunt managed to St Louis but my favorite moment and Atman is where at the end of the film he goes. I love Cassie and then shrinks into the micro verse verse to kill the Villain Yellow jacket or to destroy him because then he gets trapped in that cool little crazy dimension. He has to come back great little moment but little moment of self sacrifice from Scotland but back to civil war. Oh I was just going to question because civil war the comics came out in like two thousand six. I believe And incredible came out in two thousand four four. And your big Brad Bird person feel like those have similar. It's kind of fascinating to me. The government stepping in and saying you superheroes are actually causing more harm than good good. No more super yeah. Yeah no more soup. An idea. From Watchmen Alan. Moore's eighteen eighty six. Like yeah I think. Even in some marvel in DC comics even before watchmen and they sort of hinted at and explored certain stuff. I know that maybe it was in the eighties too. But it was a superhero group in DC comics in World War Two active during World War Two called the Justice Society of of America and then they revealed later during the fifties McCarthyism forced them to hang up their Cape because they didn't want to reveal their secret identities. And they were are you are are you commies are you read. You know what this is like. We're GONNA we're not going to work for the government working. We're retired from being superheroes so that idea has kind of been floating around but really the incredible ables did a great job of mainstreaming it and civil war. The movie is different but similar in spirit to the comic book. Details are different the details a different. Yeah Infinity War. I loved all the humor. I've said this before. I you know. I understand that it was upsetting slash traumatic slashed sad for people but I will laughed so much through this film. That did you react to the end. Though do you remember when did it and then people started to disappear. Were you laughing still laughing. It does not listen. Oh you're the worst. I didn't laugh. Listen I was giggling a tiny bit at the person in front of me. Who was freaking out? How about it happening and I understand but I would be okay? Come on like like green characters are back. I'm more concerned with this with endgame and can't let yourself get taken away by the stories. All right all right I was. I was there but it was a little. I wasn't laughing. No I was I felt for them. The biggest part was rocket in groot. That was that was interesting. He said was right group. The last thing he said was ways he said I am group. But you know what that was supposed to be a dad. Oh Yes oh. That's rough rocket. Oh that one was really hard and of course. Everybody really don't WanNa go go. Who is sad? I mean I know that he's coming back for pictures but Okay I get it I totally get it. I'm not saying I loved it. It was one of my favorite marvel films of all time. Yeah I'm not. It's it's hard for me to listen. Dragon Ball Fan. We get our heroes wish back all the time so like it's hard for me to feel those deaths you were saying like to collect the the balls and the Fox so which is put the dragon balls in their ailing your heart time. Because I didn't I didn't I tell you what you're where you're coming from because we are aware tapped in we're aware of what's going on. What the contracts part one and even when Infinity Gauntlet the comic book came out in Nineteen Eighty one? It was only like a month or two wait before everybody got brought back after Thanos actually snapped it. This is impressive. Because it's actually a year like in its. It might not be three years again like empire strikes back return of the jet I buy but for movie this is the scale the scope I I will say this. I think that the Infinity Gauntlet Saga. I'll go the infinity. War movie going into endgame is going to be something that people watch five years from. Now they're doing their re watches they go back and revisit it or they're gonNA show their kids for the first time time and when you see endgame in that context we just going to be sitting down and it happened. You know five six eight years ago and you re watch game or you rewatch infinity war and at the end everybody snaps. You're GonNa be you like Dang I'm about to pop in the next movie and it'll be fine but Dang my kid doesn't know that it's it's it's the same way people now will watch the empire. Strikes back and Hans on Solo gets frozen being. Like oh I see what you mean. Okay it will it will. It will have a different meaning and feel an impact when you go back and revisit it and what it says in the larger larger scheme of things and I also think that it will when you go back and reflect depending on how endgame is GonNa Shake out. It's going to be sadder because then games not about what we gotta get everybody back in Games about the rest of the characters and how they're coping and so we haven't seen that movie yet but actually you have your premiere last night so you saw it but the end game is about the future. It's in the future as I'm recording this. I haven't seen it so I can't technically spoil anything. Please don't get mad at me because I haven't seen it as of this recording right now at this moment but I think I think it will actually be sadder because because I don't think some of these characters are going to survive so I think that that we'll be that will be difficult to see if they are brought back. Maybe they don't make it or some of the ones that did survive. Don't make it and I think this might be like one of our. This would be like one of our final films. Essentially Comoro died rocky got his next snap. Oh yeah a bunch of ads guardians like they're gone one thing I will say the probably the last thing I'll say is the coolest thing about finally seeing the trailer that was like the ones that I saw was when they're like just get all the infinity stones. That was what was crazy because that is the solution. That's always been the solution is is you gotta go find them And then you connect them Just like you gotTa Find All the Dragon Ball so you got to go find them. Bring them back. I'm super excited to see because if it is the fact that everyone's GonNa go and literally find all of the infinitives. We're probably going to be so many different worlds and too many different things things so it's GonNa be a wild ride. Hope you're enjoying these dope apps but even when it's a flashback clip episode so he still need to pause for a break so we'll see when we get back situated on the beautiful cable beach.

That's bomber dot com B. A. H. A. M. Ayar Dot Com. All right. Welcome back to the best of nervous in part one. Hope you're enjoying it. Let's get back to the hits. Yeah so how many times have you have you seen at wants now or have seen at once okay but it was a lasting experience and I have talked about having stopped talking about it since. Like even game of thrones day out still still talking about adventure so feel good about it. I know it really saw. I mean it also sat with me as well. It was something that honestly even though it was three hours didn't didn't feel like it. Not at all didn't feel like three hours so I guess we can just dive right into it and how did you feel. How did you feel about it? Compared to all all the other films so I went back and watched most of the MC films before and then every film that was very specifically inside of this film. I watched again Afterwards and I felt so this movie. We're wrapping up so many storylines that it has very like like lovely prominent police like it's the end of like the Great Tony. Stark Lake The Emotional Daddy Drama Saga and also you get the end of captain. Marvel's like sacrificial journey But in the same way that I feel like altron left people with a lot of questions shen. This movie left me with a lot of questions however I will say I watched all Chine questions anymore because setting up questions to be answered to judge I just series in the middle like as an end of a chapter. And you're like so good like I feel like we got where we need to be. You know questions about some some of the deaths but overall it was like you know this is a really solid place to land We'll have to see where they pick up some of the strands of the questions later. It's hard to sort of judge the film. I'm in a series. You don't know how it's going to end your meals great. I think it did a great job closing the book on just kind of the the original original Mc you crew lake you know cap you know rap that story of which is it was beautiful to me as a fan of the comics because that doesn't happen in the comics in the comics cap just keeps fighting never he. He'd never gets that back so for him to be able to get that back in. The movies was like an extra surprise. It didn't see coming aren't aren't that it makes sense for him to rest. Yeah the decision captain. America make. Aren't man you know finally getting wrapped up which was great. I think I call that. I said they're both GONNA diabetes. They both didn't die but they both Kinda got wrapped their stories wrapped. And you know it seems like they're going to kind of bunch for with guardians. Maybe which is is which is the interesting thing Black widow dead. I think she's GonNa think they smoked her. The movie that's on the docket is a prequel like that's so they're just going to do the prequel. It does seem weird to do a pretty cool. Yeah I know but I mean I feel like prequel coming after time travel knowing that the zones soul stone is an exchange And the captain went to place all the stones back exactly where they picked them up she could easily pop back up up. I just don't think that it's necessary though. Sometimes I I. Sometimes I feel like it's okay to it. That's like real life it's okay. Hey sometimes to retire a loser heroes. That happened in real life. We lose people that we care about in real life and It's funny that you know that you wrote for Playboy playboy I just wrote a thing a piece for them on them. How Endgame Tackles Failure and mortality. Mainly how I when I watched this movie the I watched it as someone that has. Depression seen how they were put into this bleak world where they suddenly found themselves purposeless. They suddenly suddenly had no purpose anymore. They were so lost. And didn't I didn't know how to. How do you carry on when you feel like you have more purpose? How do you carry on after grief? How do you carry on after loss? And so that to me when I walked out. Everyone's like how do you like. How did you like it and to me? It was like oh my gosh should spoke to me from that place of it was the most vulnerable vulnerable. I had ever seen them that to me. Is The side that I that I wanted to see. And Yeah they've all we've had loss and other and other films but this. This was the first time where it was really like. This might not work out your jump. Is what really kind of screws with your head at the beginning. Because I it's like okay. Well we're picking up. They're gonNA find us. Oh yeah nothing. That was a great moment. And there were lots of good bread crumbs within all that Belykh cap saying how he this is the second loss for him because he had that loss in it really did. There were a lot of setups that were great. There's some little heavy-handed like I don't think Tony Stark certain needed to say and don't die in the process goes like all right. This is this is but but I always say those ones are for the people in the back. Who are going to happen? It's like oh big big big moments if you if you have a daughter man. They really came at us. Light boom right at the top with Scott Lang and his daughter was like ouch boom and eh with his daughter's like Oh this moment. Our coach boom. Then you get the moment Clinton where he misses his daughter out just back to back in his daughter. Just kill me now. How how how do you miss it? That missing you tour literally like it was crazy but to go back to your earlier point about like the female like just Gina. Wilson is really that if you probably inappropriate to call. But I'm so sorry but she she's awesome. She created the force. Which is the all female marvel team dope she? Hulk has a really prominent role in a lot of churches. That we haven't yet gotten to in the marvel the universe but seeing these women that we've been traveling with and especially you kind of got like a little moment of this infinity war with the Natalie Equate By the scarlet witch fighting. But here like seeing all like six eight of them lighting just tearing shit down amount. It was amazing. They're wonderful. I would see that moment like I really just WanNa see the fight over and over again. Yeah we're like scarlet witch is straight yep about murder you are has just was about to die he was about to die until it but it was so funny because like Mike. This is where the nerve brain gets in my way again. Because you're still so much stronger in the comments you can literally be you you can snap without a which is why they didn't do it in the movies. Because that's that's what they do an X.. Men Women to powerful than they have to I was like Oh man we made them too powerful. We have to kill them on but the cool thing about the way the set up is that we could get that snap eventually likelier. Yeah give it like ten now. Maybe so pissed I know Santa's now scarlet which yes scarlet witch. Okay good. She's not so important In eliminates like all of everybody with the extreme. Yeah she she. She doesn't even she says. No more mutants just speaks the word here. No more mutants and almost all mutants things are good. Read House of him. If you haven't read it yet it leads up to that. It's so good because it it in. That's kind of why like everyone's like I don't know why you need the X.. Men but like the stuff like house of him an advantage versus X.. Men is you have these two super teams like so far and what we've learned in this movie is the vendors go uncontested but in a world where x-men exists. There's a whole nother team. That if they feel like they have interest could go toe to toe with them. And that's what House House of them was about as Wanda Maximov. She has this break from reality and today's show. We got to do something about that. Now reach terrorist Chris Level and we have to kill some and they're basically having this discussion of whether or not to kill her X.. Men are like she's our people so this is Our decision and they're having this fight and the fight eventually. It's it's very beautiful. It's the rising tensions with that pisses Wanda off so much. That she's just like you you all these problems and everyone's trying to have control over her. It's like really looking back on. It is really just a kind of interesting look like. She's just tired of all these like people in her life trying to tell what to do and she's like no more mutants it people lose their powers. I wanted to say it was so I think I was like yeah. I think that they're going to introduce it's new characters and then when I saw the roster like when that final scene of just how many characters they had to bring back to really wrap this up. I'm like Oh yeah so it makes sense that they did introduce introduce. And maybe they'll slide and I don't know maybe one of the new avengers like maybe I don't know who would bring back silver who we really need. Aaron Taylor Johnson the NC you. I don't know maybe America they will show up in here. They're trying to get more. You know Queer representation and I was like maybe I just now. When I I looked at the whole they were going to do that? And and gave winter being unripe fully dragged by hector previous. When he pointed out I was complaining meaning about the civil war? This is what I want it. That fight when they rush towards each other looked like a comic book spread. I was like this is it I almost Bert like. I had all those tears and I almost I in tears of just pure nerd happiness. Because you know you're the theater of your mind when you read these comics you make something so exciting when you see these pictures. Come to life in your head and you you're like this would be so cool as move but they would never be able to do it and to see it like to think ten years ago that Thanos like like look. I don't fan is a household name now but daniels even an encounter was this cosmic level hero. Like I was explaining like they'd levels to like marvel. Heroes 'cause there because I was like it's crazy 'cause Benaissa's Venice's a cosmic hero and they're like what. Oh Yeah no you have cosmic marvel. That's all space stuff. I was like you get a taste of that from guardians. But there's a whole level of that the you got your vendors level and then you've got your street level which was cool because they're building it out with all their netflix shows. You had your street level heroes. Then you had the defenders and we're going to see what happens with that you know Disney Disney plus in five years totally different form but Disney about to take over every now Sony too because Miller and in Philip Lord are now doing a marvel TV series with Sony. Yeah the scree like nine figure deal. I'm hearing rumors that there's GonNa be starting a whole new departments of things over there for that. Yeah it's GONNA be Walleye. I'm so excited but like looking to your earlier. Point about Introducing new characters when Peter went back to high school. I swear I was looking for. Come on uh-huh in the background. Maybe she's Easter Egg. They've really starting to establish a group of young shore can start taking the lead in the next ARC So it'll be interesting to see. Let's well that's what I feel like. Monica Rambo was. That's what I feel like. She's going to be when they introduced her. I mean she has is to be so so your five year. Time jump to because she's She's an adult now and of course the scene that everybody. Nobody can't stop talking about the scene that I was at the press Green Nina how you know how people try and be there. I was there at one. Okay okay so this morning I was at the nine o'clock you know how people at Press Greens try and be professional. They never never laugh. That did not happen. This loud Saabs in my mind there was no all the league's really yes next week. Click clack on on his keyboard. Like yeah you review in the movies to see it here so but everyone's trying to be professional when I say Cap- got at that hammer and everyone's just rub. It just made it more. I'm glad people were trying to keep it together because it made that more powerful than everyone forgot the that they were trying to out here trying to pretend like they're professional. We went wild cap. Grabbing the hammer is something. It's it's crazy to me because I feel like I'm we're arkell right now. About what changed and Cap. The made him worthy to carry the hammer versus vendors. One win they all tried to pick up the HAM right. It was only four. Who was worthy ready? which sort of makes thor like the only pure hero from this dirt which really changes your perspective? Like Thorpe changed so much from Ragnarok to right now but I feel like there's so much more the character has blossomed so beautifully into himself and now we've had three people carry the Hammer Thor Captain America uh-huh and then Vision carried it for brief moment and Altron. I think What is your if you don't mind what do you you think? Change honest with Tony Track. Because he knew about The winter soldier killing Tony's parents enter so he was lying keeping a secret and I think that a layman sure if the hammer had a problem with it but I think the cap had problem with and could never have seen himself truly worthy because it was the only only secret from the vendors it was really his only betrayal of the vendors ever and every time after that he just very straightforward with him literally caused the Civil Awards So that was I think Him coming clean about that him kind of restoring things with bucky which we'll get to that in a minute I I think that his conscience is clear. and He's good to forward now is I felt it was my thought was that he's prideful. I feel like staying. Yeah I feel like captain. America has a lot of pride because it takes a certain level of pride for him to just like I I think he he like you. Know how you can be prideful. And that's it's fine. You just have too much pride. There's confidence definitely line. And he never took a now you know he never took a now frozen ice for eighty years. I mean that's more moreover palace life. That's more of a pause. I mean he like as far as for him. Fighting for justice never took an AL and then handed him that L. and it made them reevaluate everything he he is but I like yours better this idea of going back in time changing things in it affecting your future isn't true because that moment where you go back in time is now. You're right right right so so it is not necessarily creating a new timeline. It's almost as if you started it and went back and added added to your current timelines experienced everything up until that point and came but everything that changes is just new is. If that makes timeline is still affected. The one that you know the one that you pulled more out of She doesn't exist. She's not in two thousand fourteen anymore if she stays as in the present day is there's not still a good Maura in twenty four. According to the hulk the way he said it twenty fourteen already happened. So you're you're just pulling Damore into two thousand nineteen but twin all. The events are almost destined. They've already happened so you don't interrupt that so so so basically my only question was okay so Peter will still get to have a camera and he probably will also get this morning so I do think that she's he's GonNa. This is my thing that I'm GonNa Project that we've talked a little bit in dischord. I do think she's GonNa pop back up and Guardians. I was a little Easter egg that they showed it said searching for Gomorrah at the very end when you know when thor came onto the ship When Peter was looking searching for he was looking for Maura right and I think that was an Easter egg of? She's going to pop up. She might not be leaving the ship with them with Nebula in store and quail in rock and group. But I think that she will. I think that was the the best way for them to be like. Uh She's not dead. How are we going to get her back in here? How are we going to you know? Finish out this franchise and I think that was the also. I'd imagine like Gamaa all right if you went back to two thousand fourteen more and she just got realized that she's in the future and she's into this guy she's not gonna just go back on the ship I think she's like I'm GonNa Leave. Good morning she's time like if you go back onto the guardians like in the first one it's all about about like we could be a team and you know if you want after your father. That's the thing we could do to like. But like let's just try to figure this out and then part two was all about like we have to admit that we love each other like just say the words words I believe it. It'll be okay and so I think the next one will be about him trying to figure out how to get her in a way that isn't brought together by tragedy which will be really interesting because comores entire tire. Life has just been like one long tragic events and now she's on her own she's got the level of independence and I think that Peter is going to have to come to terms with that and give her like space as in time to figure out what she wants before she could even possibly begin to be in a relationship like what a crazy thing we pulled out of time. Meet your sister kind of become scissors. Kill Your father together and then find out you you had this entire life that you can't remember it's just why just really is that. We had two women that killed themselves because Natasha killed herself and Nebula killed herself even though it wasn't like her but she killed the other version of herself. I thought the saddest part of that when they were like you know you can change. And she was like he won't let me and it was just so her her character orchestra so tragic it really is and so it's at least exciting. Even though that Nebula didn't survive that this new Nebula with the next Guardians Guardians. I'm excited to see what will become of her character. Yeah it's cool. It's exciting because like even though she died she was really killing off a part of herself she never liked anyway and it. It's it's so much less tragic because it's something that she always wanted to shed even even the self who's like I can't change desires to wants to and so so for her to be like you know this gone and I'm just going to be whoever I WANNA be. It's exciting and I hope we like. I really like her in guardians to and. She's like finally on her own and I'm going to sell phillies people out of over it. She's so bad ass and I think we're going to get a lot of that kind of fun bad ass Nebula that we haven't had a lot of time aside from the cap I cap. Fight the NEBULA verse Nebula a fight and then when she smacks her and She's like you're weak and she was like I'm you and I was like. Oh that's such a good lie was like uh I'll put it in your face you know. We're getting towards the end of this and I do want to wrap up one last thing another relationship thing than I thought closed up years almost got me in my field with Tony and his dad. Oh Lord I that was like he just. It was years of everything he thought about his father being cleared up the moment he was like I will do anything for that kid. Yeah and I'm just so consumed consumed by my work that I cannot focus on them but I do love that kid I was like Oh my God. He needed to hear that you watch the scene from civil war At the top where he creates creases called Bar which is a binary automated something or other. Basically it's the thing. He creates that connects to the hippocampus projects XS parents and he gets tell his parents. It's the last time he saw his parents. It's when they do the young Robert Downey junior and he gets to tell his parents like he always wanted under say before they died. which was essentially Tony's actual words similar like? It's Okay Dad. You did the best you could right. We're getting here the last line. He says whose dad is almost identical but instead of walk off his dad gets to respond. And if that doesn't just give you the shivers like I just article about the legacy of Tony Stark. Because it didn't instruct me how much I like the character until his journey ended because to me. I'm like rich entitled Douchebag like okay it's fine like down genius is junior infectious like you love his performance. You want to watch him. He's a wonderful performer. But Tony Stark is constantly just running headlong into decisions making giant mistakes and then really getting mad when people are like he wants to clean up his own mistakes. He doesn't want to really take responsibility ever you know he's he's sorry that it happened but I'll correct it and I'll do it by myself. And it'll all be fine and that constant like tripping over himself is always causing problems and it's what makes his final snap so peak perfect because one. He's got the assurance that this is the only way and we've seen Tony constantly to every ironman movie every vendors me put his body on the line he's willing to die for this cause but it's never really been worth it. You didn't ever really have to. You're never going to be the leader that Captain America just naturally was but you need to be you a rebel and a Patriot and that is so American and so closely ideals Captain America holds whose heart. It's so close to what your dad was always trying to achieve like. All these years that he fell were so far away from him gave him the respect. I mean the fact that what cap does with his life after value. Tony's message and Tony's agenda. I'm just GonNa go a simple life because we all deserve to have that. At some point it is the most miraculous accurist rx like it is. I hope that eventually we can get this with all of the character by the way they did it with Tony was it was pitch perfect. The most I think the thing that made it the most perfect. The the icing on the top is the fact that Tony Ins the way the MC you started the MC. You started at the end of iron man when he says I. I am iron man and the last line that Tony Stark says in the MC you is. I am Ironman stall just doc who I've gotTA breathe a second or I'm just reaction. It's okay you can discuss. This was another one of those like splashes and this was a horror. Movie centered around you know black culture blackness and And everything and I remember instead of like I know there was the bloody Mary. You name three the three times. Yeah and people said that for Tandy man where I grew up like if you say candy man in the Mirror he comes kills you but it's five times five times in the actual movie but but but people like three times in the mirror. Yeah my fiance still won't say it really still today. I was telling her about it yesterday. I was like yeah. So we're doing candyman. She's like you can only say name so many times I was like it's not gonNA still. He's he's not wrong. You know it could. No one knowing that I know have said it five times. There were some controversy that the film was depicting racism and racial stereotypes. Stereotypes this film based on that scene. You just described the problem. Is You know what just according to rose. I had to go and have a whole set of meetings with the ACP because producer so worried and what they said to me was. They'd read the script what they said to me when they read the script was why are we even having this meeting. You know this is just good fun. That's why you receiver nature fun. This must be the national Advancement the National Association of the Advancement of Caucasian people. Their argument was why shouldn't have blackbeard's ghost. Why actor play Freddie Krueger? If you say that they can't be it's really perverse this. This is a horror movie. According to Madsen I was an am now worried about how people will respond. I don't think I don't think Spike Lee will like this film defense. He's right conspiring like anything. Like that's that's he's in it no strache Oh my gosh. This is great because I want to know how much of that is true. I love the quote. Why shouldn't a Black Sea coast? There's like imagine how much better Whoopie Goldberg would abandon Santa Patrick's if she was why would she goes. Oh this is all this off to the best start because I mean this. This is the the amount of gravity to approach this movie. But also it's like it's funny because it is like a ten poll in the black community. It's important it's important to us because like we he said why shouldn't black people be a ghost or Freddie Krueger. We're seeing a lot of funny things but I'm not joking. How big of a impact candyman has I mean? There's what's the other like big black horror movie. Yeah besides tells from the yeah. I think that's it. I think it's candyman tells us came along you know and Get out yeah so yeah. There's been nothing for thirty years now. It was either this or acrimony from Tyler Perry scariest movie for Oh O-man so So so we went to Chicago. He was scared now. We're talking such an excellent like caught up got up So now we get to the casting which is wilder. Yeah then we ready for so Eddie Eddie. Murphy was the original choice for the role of candyman but his filmmakers cannot afford him which means both the film was off to a great start but also he's not the choice like well. The biggest comedy star is GonNa be our horror guy. Yeah do oh you. That's that's how I learned my Eddie Murphy. Impression needs some tightening up the point. I mean at least you did. uh-huh todd negotiated a bonus of one thousand dollars for every beating. He suffered well filming twenty three times. I mean that's smart. Yeah just like you know you gotTa Pay Me Iraq. Every time I gets done also like how do you do. Oh you just lie or do they check you. Know when you're talking money talking about Iraq. I'm just saying I'm at the doctor right mattress. You know. It was the ninety. So I can't said you like a picture of my polaroid in my Marquette Marquette. So you have to believe me. I'm calling you on a landmine. Oh my gosh I'm if you want to weigh Jeff Trammell right over there. We read through the plot candyman. I'm glad we waited this long to do it. I'm glad we got all the making of the all that out of the way. Okay because the plot itself needs to be dived into because also another thing to remember while we're going through this plot is keen. Peel is rebooting. This is going to be. I keep calling my bed Jordan the all together for the rest of my life bill is remaking this is GonNa be fun to see what what he decides to keep on what he gets rid of. And I think it's going to be a lot of SCOPE CHAPA apple blah. What reading Oh my gosh all right? So the dog's it's been decapitated Ameri Baby Anthony's missing okay. And she attacks Helen in the midst of defending herself. Helen is arrested by the police. Trevor Ellen's husband bells out of jail but candyman appears to Helen again and cuts her neck causing her to bleed to a point of unconsciousness. She blacks out again. Bernadette appears at the apartment in his murdered by Candyman who frames Helen for the murder. Helena sedated and placed in a psychiatric hospital after months day at the hospital Elena's interviewed by psychologists in preparation for upcoming trial she attempts to prove her innocence by summoning candyman. Kills the coaches not escape. Making it harder to prove. Wait a minute wait wait. Wait wasn't his goal to prove that he is a real thing he why is he putting on his murders understand. Oh I am starting to remember last time I read this plot and just you reading. That's all I must say. You are not and will never be read because now I'm remembering what happens and I remember why it raced By memory once again still going to revisit. Why if you are back in in civil war slave times for very you know? I don't even know if Kenny Manmade is June teeth. I don't even think he made it why he coming back and killing black light. You shoulda died. If that's that's how you handle handle your Your Greece seems like he would only kill white people. Yeah especially like white men because he was in love with a woman so yeah why is he killing it. After after all these years still fall for white woman would learn more than one. Try One sister. Change Your Life convincing. They're in good. You are running back to Helen. Is this a movie about me.

Welcome to night call a production of iheartradio. Hello and welcome to a night. Call Holiday Special Release Of a book club episode. Normally these book club episodes are reserved solely for our patriots. But we're opening it up for the holidays to try in convinced more of you to join our club patriotic and also as a little treat this book club episode is communion by Whitley Striber a very strange sort of holiday detail about an alien abduction. That may or may not have happened. Please enjoy and we'll be back with more night. Calls in in twenty twenty. It's eleven forty eight. PM In a cabin in upstate. New York and you're listening to the night called Paul Book Club Hello and welcome back to the Night Call Book Club. My name is test Lynch. I'm in Los Angeles and with me. I Have Molly Lambert Emily or Ashida guy for this month's book club were doing communion and this was probably I thought this was our most difficult and dance But to get through shows it. I'm excited up that challenge but yes yeah it was like the first thing that felt like a primary source into the paranormal with all the baggage. That comes with that But I'll just say up front in the interest of total transparency currency. I did not finish this book this month. I am very very sorry to all of our patriots subscribers. I will always try to finish it from here on out. I was just in the middle of moving. It was also if you don't finish the book club book if life gets in the way and you don't finish the buck that's okay well in this in this in the case of this one it can be a book club for like Whitley's drivers yes I've site or entry or like anything having to do with him generally hate but clubs actually because as soon as they get assigned book like the last thing I wanted to do it just takes me to high school in that way. Always you know anytime I've ever been in a book club before it's just been like. Oh what a big responsibility. Possibility yourself up to get in trouble with your friends by a book club is I love the night Culpa Club but I also yeah. I feel like nobody's judgmental about isn't uh who you can read the book however you like you can watch the movie. It's not like that seinfeld episode. If you watch communion and that's what you're working off that's fine two. I really wanted to see the movie. If you haven't yet dame yeah I should maybe do a bonus upper something throw. Yeah 'cause I'm so I like because I was the first thing when we started reading nate I of course saw oh. There was a movie made with Christopher Walken in. It must check this out and the images from it are incredible so I was very very curious. The author didn't approve of it. Christopher walken played him as a Dick. Yeah talk about what. What comedians about you guys? So Oh yeah well Willie striber is kind of the most interesting thing about. 'cause communion derailed his entire career so basically communion into it started his career as a UFO. Allah Gist Guy Pholigistic. He also post so we should say about at least driver. He's a the author he was supposed to be like the next Stephen King almost if not every single one of his books has been turned into a movie most of them very high grossing seen movies. Yeah he wrote the hunger which is like turned into a movie was personal. Favorite of mine. But Tony Scott's Catherine Deneuve and David David Bowie He did the day after the book. The bid after tomorrow is based on. That was recently and that was recently and that was post his life getting ruined. I'm doing air quotes right. Now Tom by communion so he's like done okay for himself. He's in resigned and he's made. He's almost as if he's made of bargain. What he talks about about being exiled from is that his like Super Rich New York penthouse friends started to think he was too weird to associate with which is to be fair? He started associating with a lot of UFOLOGISTS. And you know Alien Fan. We know the his friends were really early. fringy right but the right. Some of these people were like taking a plane to secret peto islands. So I'm just saying maybe striper chose the right striped striped spirit. World go towards seeing those like secretive Peto Island New Yorker conversations. Are you could be talking about. What did he say? Say he like hung out with Lou Reed and Lou Reed spiracy. Theory's pretty chilling arrives is from Texas. He's from Yeah San Antonio or near San Antonio originally and then he wrote a bunch of horror novels adopted and then Eh communion. He started writing in the eighties. He it's based on it's based on a bunch of experience but the primary experiences when it started all happened in In late nineteen eighty-five October and December. Nineteen th the day after Christmas. Nineteen after he had finished his Christmas. Goose finished his Christmas goose and working working on a hearty novel about the Russian Revolution. And he's cross country skiing a lot. Yeah Yeah so he had to experience. I believe in the nineteen eighty-five one in October and when the day after after Christmas that he kind of focuses on both at this upstate house That he's gotten with his Hollywood richest. It's his weekend house yes But then yeah over. The course of the book was published in Nineteen thousand seven very soon after these events transpired And and then over the course of the book he kind of goes back into his past via regressive hypnosis and discovers that he has had earlier contacts with visitors but also one of the weird things about communion is that it's kind of credited with like establishing the gray as the the stereotypical alien Morm- But he willie strivers really clear throughout the book that he has no reason to believe that these are extraterrestrials right. He's kind of like I think maybe but I have no evidence that they when people say that. That's what it is. Because he's like like I never said that. Yeah and he said it could be just crazy military experiment. Yeah where they come kidnap people in the night do things on them which is way scarier area. There's a interview that was earlier this year. So a very recent interview I think tussling to for us Included in our notes. He says something. And I think this is sort of assimilated some some things. He said in the book where he says I've also unfortunately had an influence on modern. You're fo folklore. I think it's all folklore. It's something that that people don't understand. And they generate stories about it. What I'm interested in is the something that's their what's behind them And so yeah and he talks a lot about like he's he goes and does research on other people's you folks -periences prior to that kind of comparing recurring images and experiences and commonalities and stuff and like and that approach to. It is like one of the things I'm like. This feels like a very rational way to if you have an experience that feels unexplained like this. Like he's going in about like he's doing what I would do it basically so I feel like all that is super interesting because it's not it's not like oh I've been visited by aliens. It's like I'm having an experience at similar player to these other kind of abnormal experiences. Other people have had What can we learn from the sum total of these experiences as testimonial especially from the beginning? It's framed aimed really well. I mean obviously. He's a horror novelist. It's sort of written like a horror novel. It reminded me a lot of some of the. HP lovecraft staff. I just like was living my life in a weird part of the East Coast and then an inexplicable thing completely out of my frame of reference that it completely horrifies me and makes me unable to function in life after. He has one of the experiences he tries to kill his son accidentally sort of let me like a knife on his son or something. I don't think so talking about your house like this weird encounter with the sun. which again again? We'll get to that later whether well it's after the. It's after the October incident where they have friends over her. And everybody at least shares a recollection of like strange lights and a found a blue light. Yeah crashing noise like things clattering. Yeah and then he talks to his son about and this is so like you said it was like a horror book. This book scared me more than like most other books ever have. Because there's this part where he goes to asked his son and he's like yeah. I was worried for a second but then the little doctors came and told me like it was all going to be okay. And so like and those those sort of unexplainable things I mean. It really gets into kind of subconscious stuff it gets into a lot of like like childhood memories and the weird foggy or not really quite quite sure what was a dream and what wasn't that comes out of childhood memories including his own. That's all super super interesting to me. Yeah and actually I think that's the scariest part is just unrelated to the idea that your memories that some of your memories are are what he calls screen memory our memories that replace. I mean a lot of if you if you kind of go. Oh down the web whole from at least driver to his friend. BUDD HOPKINS UM WHO's mentioned in the book as either for the hypnosis guys. The knows Rosiak with Dr Klein but Hopkins kind of became famous in his own right because he he would observe these hypnosis sessions and then he kind of started. Did these like therapy groups for survivors of alien abductions. But he had no background in psychology. kind of playing fast and loose with people who were describing like really intense and often the experiences were a lot like rape or child abuse and but Hopkins was very sure. Sure that the alien abductions were real and this is like the only answer and so the regressive memories through hypnosis and the screen memory is they just is obviously as you're reading the book there's a feeling of being you know the fact that that is like a very dangerous kind of thing to do something. So eighty eight is what I remember. Being the Big Lake. Panic constantly in the eighties was things like that. Was Lake repressed memories. People doing regressions that lead to like recovered memories that are real and that was like how they did all this satanic panic style. Yeah was to. It'd be like Hey. Do you remember when this crazy thing happened and kids are like. Oh Yeah Yeah I remember that happen. Yeah I mean you're still kinda getting out of the trend of analysis As as your main kind of form if there be in that very kind of old school still for Freudian Way because screen memories like a fourth thing yeah And all this sort of like psycho-sexual memories such a scary idea right but I totally it makes sense though but I again like in that case a lot of this stuff does feel like abuse stories. Yeah I guess it has the pattern of it. The kind of the way that the mind shields it from from oneself is it feels really And then that makes it even scarier right like that's not less scary when you have a tricky thing is that Willie striper. Has I think the forward to this book which was written much later but when he talks about how depressed I he became and how you know. He was just so frustrated because he feels as though you know he's been cleared by neurologists. He doesn't they thought maybe a temporal lobe epilepsy or some very very clear about that. He really good talk about it a lot but he he's just saying just take me at my word what I'm describing there. Were physical symptoms symptoms in some cases witnesses. Who who were at the cabin? Who saw something weird happening so I think he was finding it very upsetting like we're not obviously the first to say? This is not probably what happened. What happened could have been something real bustle all of that stuff? When you're saying it does just sound like such abuse stuff like you're telling everybody what happened but nobody what he believes? You like. Well even like the one thing so maybe we should go through and just like talk about at least the to nineteen eighty five five incidents. Yeah and because one thing that I think happens in The first one he talks about not the first one chronologically in the one thousand nine hundred the the the day after Christmas one. Yeah is like this recurring thing. That also happens in the the one on the train. When he's a kid is like this feeling of like Oh and then suddenly I was above whatever was going on like I was seen everything from a bird's eye view which is just like I'm just like Oh that's an out of body experiences? Ask like that's what that feels like. That's all I was just thinking somebody who's had like anxiety attack. I was like Oh yeah like disassociating renews. You're having something happen that you have to leave your body but the day after Christmas One yes. He had his Christmas goose crossing water. Ski Cross Country Skiing later afterwards and was like unusually fatigued by that was like phone one of his first symptoms that something wasn't right but click interjection I hate cross country skiing much and it's such a lake weekender thing to do at your country homer. I'm just like you take something. That's like fun and dangerous. He he sucked the fun out. And then you're like take a walk but we're GONNA make it harder fully understood it. I always thought it was like a competitive sport. Where you just like ski for a really long in time? Like that's what it is. But it's like you're walking on skis. You're on an order shack hiking on skates not snowshoeing snow shoeing. Yeah some you know I. I always thought it sounded delightful because like all bundled up and having to Swish. Swish wish swish any winter activity. I was like God that must be the most unthinkable ever. And I'll never get to do it so I'll never know leading only clangs grace skiing that I did for so long because my mom used to live in Minnesota and so she had skis still downhill. Skiing was too expensive. You had to get the rail the the lift pass and all that stuff but like we would go to Mount Rainier go cross country skiing and I hated his biggest fight I ever had with my parents as a child was a I would beg me to go cross country skiing with them and for some reason I just always refused and it was like a two year battle because your parents were making. Yeah exactly Zack. It's no anyway is walk. I just wanted to go on would. Yeah for the FIT. Wa- walk off some of that Christmas coups meeting my goose and my jam. He gets a little guy comes into his room. A little guy wearing like like a plate of armor something. Yeah what she thinks is like because they've found his gun and they think he's going to shoot him so they've like pre armed themselves or something something And he just like suddenly as standing up with his clothes off in his room and then is being transported outdoors. Eats he kind of. It's like A. He describes a bunch of lake weightless hands central hands like shuttling him out the door and he's like yeah. Yeah he can't move it's very dreamlike. There's one part where he talks. I don't know if it's when he's leaving his room or some other part where they're moving but it's like he talks about being like he's like mid stride aid and frozen and getting like shuttled out like floating out and I just looked at. It just sounds like dreams. I've had it's very is very evocative. It also sounds like sleep. Paralysis also is like this. Just sounds like you had a really vivid nightmare that you had sleep. He would say the Physically he had been he you know it looked as though he had been roughed up so his defense against the sleep paralysis. Argument is there were physical Michael Marks but yeah so he has. He's brought to the slake clearing in the woods and I forget if something happens there does he you get some kind of. That's where he goes up. He goes up. Yeah and then. He's in a ship. Yeah he's like I'm in a messy room room. And he's like she. She's brought into the reality of the experience when he likes. SMELLS SMELLS Leeann. Yeah she's like what can we do to get you liked screaming two thousands parenting thing of like. How can we help if your body let me let me smell your hand? The only normal response yet doesn't it. Smells like cinnamon. Yeah and he's leg. That's how I knew it was real. Yeah Doc gooden smell the cinnamon so strongly I mean again like can you remember smell from a dream like I don't I don't think dreams have psych. Hi can run but I can't remember smelling something in a dream but I can remember like everyone acknowledged of yeah yeah That part is so compelling to me you would think he would have asked to read something because you can't read in dream how that's true. Litmus test that supposedly in dreams you can lake thank. You can't look at a page of ladder There are no rules in dreamers. Have you ever read a book in a dream. Probably you can. You can be Holding a book and you can be trading understanding a story but you can't physically read and adrenaline dreams anymore. Because I spoke to which pot. But that's when I stop stop. I have the type of vivid nightmares. Such as might produce a communion dream in very clear that he doesn't do any drugs although then he's like like he's such a liar about Italy ally talks about in interviews. He'll talk about like he went to England. He was like in and out of Eric Club. Yeah come on man you Hero cocaine is situated waited on the beautiful cable beach.

That's Baja Mar DOT DOT COM B.. A. H. A. M. A. R. dot com. Yeah I mean again. That's another possible explanation. A lot of that stuff psychological side effects affects down the road especially yes But I don't know I'm not going to diagnose quickly stroke I'm just saying other people have tried. Yes so yeah he that what was his first experience. He was returned. Eventually I forget. Did they sample him yet. They did they was that man. The probed The anal probe job. And that is where that comes from is what I've learned. Yeah that was like the beginning of that being a South Park because he says it ruined his career. Because that was the first South Park episode entirely about this particular alien abduction book. Hot So weird I never. I think I just thought these were even older tropes of alien abduction but now that I think about it. It's very eighties for somebody to introduce like and also their sexual assault involved. Yeah you know it does seem like in the fifties and sixties it sort of just like on the cow comes back down weird I mean obviously 'cause I was looking I was like where. When did these I start documenting? UFO sightings well. This is. What's interesting so there was an essay was actually a back and forth between two people on we are the mutants? It was so so fascinating to me because they talked about how I think it was in this one How in the fifties the UFO was seen as a largely like non non intervening kind of thing was just sort of like an observational thing? But then in the eighties this is when there was like this explosion of people people claiming to have had interactions and one of the things that they say that I think is really interesting is just how this is a book that is completely really about stripers. I fear and the way that he tries to protect an arm this cabin in the woods so he has an apartment in New York. He doesn't even really talk about his this sense of like fear there he talks about how in the country he's afraid he's installed like motion sensor lights shotgun. There's a security system eighty leave. It is eighties but it's also very strange to go from a city where you would understand feeling like oh but especially if you're from like number of in Texas but I just I thought that like he's clearly such a paranoid person he talks about. How like the reason they went to the country was because he was having like nervous breakdowns in his apartment in the city where he wanted to be a paranoid right person to have nervous breakdowns? What he was having he was having like intruder fantasies nightmares specifically intruder nightmares and like like home invasion nightmares? which I feel like we're also just like super stoked by news all the time in the eighties? Yes we'll also. He had this experience. I don't know if he talks about it in the book but he talks about it in a Interview about like his parents left him alone for eleven two nights or something when he was eleven I was I feel like a totally normal thing thing back then but striking they took the restor yeah. They took his siblings. And then it's just left to left at home and then he like looked into a room. There's like the window. Above an air conditioning unit was open and he called his parents and like well. If you think this woman is linked come in call the cops and then the cops this came and he said they were really freaked out and then they just left and I but I feel ache that will put like a fear of an intruder intruder fears. L. Malone I had a wicked fear of being home alone I think everybody does a certain point also just because again again like local news especially as always like putting that out there as a reason to be afraid and never leave your home. I feel like that was why in the eighties. People were were supposed to leave their homes. You turn your home into a fortress well. This is kind of like the other element of eighties man to it in the the kind of shadowed eighties eighties. It's like the boomer idea of. I am chosen this. They also talk about this and we we are the mutants thing where they were just like. It's so boomer to be like I'm GonNa like overarm overarm my house. I'm so afraid of someone like sneaking in and disrupting this like perfect whatever but then also I am like extra specially been chosen for observation by a aliens and then at the same time in the second half of the book. He is really throughout the book. He talks a lot about how stable his family is He loves his his wife. He loves his son. He doesn't drink he doesn't do drugs and then occasionally he'll Kinda slip and be like well. I mean I was drinking myself to sleep during that time. I was having a bad period between October. There's some real Stephen King stuff in there we even king after the first abduction my whole family was really stressed out all the time me sort of losing it yes. It's the these conflicting reports of how life was and I mean I think it's you can't fault him for being something was going to be stressed. We're just just presented as a novel. It would be just like an amazing horror novel but the but he was very firm nonfiction and its follow up there was on the bestseller Seller lists in New York Times was like I we will not classify this as nonfiction. It's fiction and he was furious about it which is also understandable. I mean he's very sure that he lived it and they also talk about he introduces early on about his own conflicting memories. And how the shooter thing thought he was he. He said he would tell people. He was on campus for the University of Texas Shoe. But he wasn't yeah but he had a very specific false memory of it So a lot of it does sort of sound like compulsive liar stuff where people make up stories that are interesting to you. Says anything off of you know he was like they relies but they weren't lies because I believed them. Yeah wait hold up. That's still that's bad is a lot like that's still a lie. Yeah you know if you know that it doesn't lineup but then there's that stuff there's all the animal memories to where he's like. I saw an owl but like I knew I didn't see now I don't know I thought I saw an owl like all that kind of stuff where it would have been so weird to have a bar now already. I know high right. You're in the country in a barn. Yeah is it weird or is that why people always say that they see instead of aliens because it's only people in country houses barns sounds like it made me be like is is everybody upstate. Seeing aliens just like had a little bit too much wine after dinner and they don't WanNa talk about it. He had been. Why one drink and one glass of wine? I mean that's the kind of thing whereas a person who would desperately like WanNa get myself credibility where that's the obvious answer is just so drunk. It's like I'll tell you who I had one drink. Yeah and one glass and it's like you don't remember like it was like how many years ago and you're a member. How many drinks yet but they sort of? So yeah we're if somebody like interrogated you relentlessly about like okay. Then what did you do. When did you do like your own story? Might Start to slip just because like if you tell it over and over again it's GonNa Shaft left and you start to question things that you would take for granted like because it's being called into question again. We're back in the land of trauma and all of that. But I also wanted to talk about the October because that one is interesting just because there are other witnesses there yes And this is again one of these things where it's like. This is one of the things where it's like hard to write all the stuff off because they go to the cabin with Anne and what's Sir husbands anymore. So frazier naming of the friend like you know that thing where you invite your friends over to your for a weekend and then you have a lovely the weekend of cross country skiing and you you make a delicious brunch in the morning but not until after you've like threaten everybody with a gun because you maybe saw an alien yes he doesn't threaten them with a gun he just has a has a guy thought. That's what I'm talking about. I thought that he brought the gun out not everybody was like what are you doing. No mentions that he has it matches to them. He just mentioned in the course of like he says that he so. I think it's after the October thing. When he was feeling really unsettled and like felt like something was like at the House or somebody who was coming to the house? Ah But he's still hadn't kind of decided it. was these visitors. Yeah that he bought the shotgun which I mean okay. We don't condone guns on this podcast podcast but again if you think. I don't know it doesn't sound crazy to me that he has a gun in a cabinet in the middle of award system is the crazy thing. Yeah and he acknowledges that I too. He says there's no reason. I should have this stuff that I got. It was just feeling so nervous Yuppie eighties and somebody's like we can sell you this. It'll keep you save sliver. I lived for many years with the eighties. Yuppies in the country had a security system now inside the house unlocked. Is Ashley Doors Open. Yup It would have been very very rare. I mean he was definitely definitely super-duper paranoid but yes so. Let's go to the October with Jacques. ZSA ZSA ZSA. James on the This is the the one where he's very clear about. WHO has their doors open? But but that there's a a light that comes in through a window in the living room that I the rooms open out onto and he sees it because their doors open and then what does he say. He says something to his wife like no he. He says that the house is on fire. He starts freaking out in. The House is on fire. Like did I leave a six. Doesn't he say like. Did I leave a cigarette. Bernie or something I don't know but he's like something must have been burning and I must have fallen asleep but then he's like instantly also like never mind is fine. Go back to sleep. And then he apparently early goes back to sleep. Oh yeah well his. He says my mind inventoried the possibilities. I watched this blue light because it was a blue light. So that's what made it super weird slowly creep up the ceiling as if whatever was causing it was slowly moving down into the front yard from above. Finally I hit on what seemed to me to be a sensible solution. The chimney must be on fire and dropping sparks. Your chimney you something about it at once. Then I fell into a deep sleep great but that's the thing whereas like yeah that's what he goes back. And that's the thing that feels really nightmarish to hang of like when you're in a dream and you try to like run and you can. That's what all his abduction experiences are like willing. Also has I mean he also just has these unaccounted for like blank spots and like. There's a whole thing missing time. The missing time I'm in Texas is terrifying. Oh my God Austin stuff where he's like I was I was heating up my food and then I looked down in. The food was totally cold because six tower's gone by right. Yeah so Budd Hopkins. His friend who later like observes his hypnosis. He wrote a book called Missing Missing Time. Because the thought apparently is like the the thread that goes through all of these abduction. Yeah Alright says and that people who are abducted once will be abducted again and have been conducted before he claims and the the evidence of this abducted you know. The fact that they'd been abducted is the missing time these blank spaces and and they'll talk. He talks a lot. I don't remember if this is in communion or in the Bud Hopkins thing but People driving and then like coming to in a while and there's a white that's right. Yeah that's I signed a nightclub night. Call event poster based on the driving adoption. We we remember when we had rush field on the show. Yeah yeah no I thought of that too. Had the experience where they were later brand park they went to the park and they walked up the hill and they were all of a sudden in a car. Yeah I gotTa Duck Dead something similar happen to me. I'm not going to let go at go into but I don't think it was enough doctors to go into it now. There was. There was a time when I was not drinking or doing anything I had one drink. It was the Dutch because we I went to a party. This is a very long time ago with friends and I wasn't like very comfortable with the crowd so it was like all drive and we were on the freeway and there was like a you know I have no idea how much time elapsed but all of a sudden I was like in a different lane had missed the exit. It no idea what had happened but I had been having fainting spells at the time and I assumed I had like you know how to fainting thing but normally would the fainting spells. Yes I would like collapse. Yeah didn't Yeah and it's and what's weird. Apparently is that the car continues. Like people aren't usually harmed in these instances. I my understanding when they're I mean. I don't think I was like missing time. I think I was zoning out in my mind wandered and I drove badly But it's interesting 'cause you're like oh one of the things that they point out is like you would think if you were zapped away that you would your car would crash crash but it seems to be not the case that the car continues on the path. It's just that all of a sudden you're like somewhere you shouldn't be well. There's also the idea that you're like entering a parallel dimension. Bodies still there right. You're you're rival thing. Where time moves differently? When she's in the show spent I forget which way it is if she can spend like four hours in there and like thirty minutes have gone back? Can't remember or think it's on arrival or else I know what you're talking about visiting visit arrival contact. Well Yeah I WANNA talk about contact to another. There's another common trope that that contact deuces wild which is like like the idea of these visitors being interested in our minds and our subconscious and so we like gathering data from them and then using that to talk to us or communicate with stargate again which is a great movie Some kind of about ancient aliens. Yeah no I think I watched last year dimension MOMS fan the movies amazing could James Spader plays like a wholesome virgin and it's like the most perverse everything movie. He plays a guy who can only get it up up for some weird thing like in that movie. It's like Pyramids me to you James Van same so I want to talk with you guys. About what what you thought about weather at least driver was so one of the theories I read about and I don't remember where but was that the there. He talks a lot about the female alien who he's kind of like yeah. I don't know if he's wisely says he's attracted to her but like like for some reason I'm like they have a real Salmon Diane. But he's like also like physically aroused in her. Yeah and he. And he's like uncomfortable but he also so it's like we don't know if they have genders we can't right. Yeah so this is like in in some of strivers fiction. There's a lot of like you know. Vampires having babies Abe's with human things about mating with meeting with the ancient mystical creature. But what's kind of weird. So basically uh he had also written speculative fiction about both nuclear apocalypse and climate apocalypse and he. He was like super on that in a day which I think was he had done before. This all happened during the nineteen eighty-five stuff happened to him. Yankee had been super steeped in it. But yeah the his fears ears like he clearly was just so freaked. Out By the speculative fiction and he definitely and some of the stuff too. You're like Oh that's what a lot of people are going through that now. Yeah and so he kind of was I think he. He was basically in the position where he was like well. We have to like think about alternatives to Earth be and he had a son which also like is stressful. Like even if I'm fine yeah E. might not be fine and he he kind of was calling the climate crisis in the eighty S. One one of the first people to set about like what was going to be like in fifty years and he was totally right. But I think you know inventing this kind of race of like beings who are smart enough to be able to like so they implanted a chip in his ear which then he thinks now can read his thoughts and also like suggest things to him like the number one hundred and thirty seven. Were just like one thirty seven and then he has to figure out what it means or whatever But it's almost like he was so panicked about what he thought would happen to the world that he had to kind of invent a way out and he you had to be chosen to be the Messenger and like the mother alien who can save us all. I'm sure he would hate that reading on it but but they he does isn't isn't isn't there some point where they are talking about climate change. The aliens are talking about the future of the planet. I feel like I didn't make this up now. That sounds familiar familiar. Is he gets a like a weird visit in the night. This is not in the book later. He gets basically the suggestion for day after tomorrow. This is crazy from some like dude. TRENCHCOAT who walks into his hotel room after midnight and tells him like we can't abandon our planet. Let's talk about that stuff. Yeah so some of striber later books so his his work is generally like this horrid novels and the history of commune impose communion work. That is all supposed to be nonfiction. But and there's also a lot of like apocalyptic stuff around communion and post communion town. So he wrote this book the A key which is about the visitor who supposedly. The man in the trench coat came to him from the future probably told him a bunch of secrets. People have pointed out that all of the secrets he heard from this man actually come from a George Gerda. Jeff who is this philosopher That at least driver was really into studied for a million years and We should talk about him a little bit. Yeah he's I'd never ever heard of him him either Armenian mystic and philosopher and chief. I think it's Gergiev incurred Jeff. Jeff I don't know I don't know how to read this thing on here. He he came up with what he called called the fourth way which was a self help method that involves. Oa like dancing. Barry invented something called the the gergiev movements. Yeah which are a combination of other sacred dances. Basically this guy was sort of early on the kind of synthesizing eastern religions with new age stuff Tim And so when he brought it to America a lot of people got into it. Frank Lloyd. Wright's there's thirty nine movement and Remillard but it looks like what he did. I mean the the Gergiev stuff is not super quack. Easy actually like one of the conscious. Labor is mindfulness and then intentional suffering. And it's got a little. There's a whole lake. It's got a little bit of like Matrix to it because it's all about like everyone is asleep until you wake up. You have to wake up and live your life consciously because otherwise you're just going through the movements and I think the Gir- Jeff Movements and help you wake up. I WANNA learn them. Yeah somebody wanted teach them to us. Yeah well he gave the first public demonstration of the sacred dances in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine so he was like he sort of gathered followers throughout throughout Europe. Marlene absolutely like took this from for away. Right I mean yeah yeah. It's so interesting I can't wait to read more about this. Yes so interesting but he also did like any stuff as well so he yeah. The called biaz above tales which is a allegory about an alien okay or his grandson with his grandson about an alien Leeann. And the aliens grandson and they like go through a bunch of trials on this planet and it's like a metaphor for something but it's also about aliens so so the guy who came to strivers hotel room and told him so that guy the guy who showed up at his hotel room didn't he say that he he was like. Hey I I'm trying to make sense of my notes on this. The man warned him about climate crisis by way of a strange anecdote about a child who could have invented extraterrestrial travel but had never been born because his or her parents died in the Holocaust is like what the synopsis that like Aita From what the man said to at least driver which seems like Well there is an episode. Oh described in communion about him trying to build some kind of spacecraft as a child because he received instructions from he told his friends his his friend had the memory of him as a kid which seems like out of context. Some something that kids says. Oh I an alien came and visited me and hold me how to make a spaceship shop. I'm GONNA make one. And then he like knocked out the power in their house. It was using magnets. Yes some kind of magnetic connecticut. Whatever the fuck but Yeah but that's just what I thought of when I except for the whole Holocaust the Holocaust throws in a whole interaction. Yeah I mean some of the later stuff it starts to seem to rope in more just kind of conspiracy theory e. things from other corners and sort of be you know in the way that people start to be like just asking questions that's right right. Yeah like maybe. It doesn't add up to anything. I was reading a lot of stuff like this new book about the Manson family murders that was written by somebody. Who Sort of research it for a million years and like didn't necessarily find anything new but then took that as evidence that like everyone was lying because they didn't want to talk about about it? Yeah Yeah I feel like the but I just I read an interview. That guy where it was just felt very similar to try interviews. Here's where it's like at a certain point once you start to unravel it's like it all starts kind of falls apart. Well and part of me is dislike slake when we talk about ghosts and stuff like that. I mean I've never seen a ghost. I also just like pretty much. I'm interested in the idea. Goes Pretty Pretty much fundamentally. Don't believe in them the end of the day for Really GonNa ask ask me so like is that why I've never seen a ghost. It's that kind of thing where it's just like he's had this sort of paradigm shifting experience. We don't really know the truth of it. What actually happened but whatever it was it is open them up to a plethora of possibilities of what could be happening in the? Here's my my reading a lot of his books. Also in the way that they are about like communing with some other species at magic well his interesting that he so boring in St St because all of his books are like really queer. And we're you know and that is like he's also a Catholic guy and there's Catholic esotericism in their mark to me. I was a little bit like this about a guy Situated on the Beautiful Beach Baja Mar is a spectacular new resort destination in the Bahamas with your choice of three Ocean Front hotels tells the Grand Hyatt SS Rosewood.

That's Baja Mar dot com B. A. H. A. M. A. R. DOT COM Again that goes back to the thing of like. Oh my life is ruined. Because I can't hang out with my friends right like he's still considers that got to be something that's like missing that like this. He he will stick to the truth of of his truth is truly is true of what happened to him but he's still like hanging onto some idea of like normalcy more more and like his case. It's very like white bread. America normalcy that. Yeah he's not. He's not like willing to give that up totally because he's like. Everyone should be listening to me because I am. I'm the smartest man alive. Obviously I'm telling the truth it's yeah he's so forthcoming I think what What what makes it hard to completely dismiss? What he says happened to him is that he is so he seems so open than to any number of possible explanation? Toil young as it stays true to like the only things he does know our. He was physically affected. Sometimes James there were witnesses. He apparently approached people You know about things and didn't didn't tell them what him and they kind of. Yeah we got a tonight letter about this. We're somebody brought up the possibility that this book was about child abuse and about the author character abusing their son and the whole thing being elaborate sort of way to try and make sense of that which we don't know we're just speculating but definitely. It has a lot of similarities to the shining came to me. Yeah totally yeah. This feels like a dad with a problem and some secrets. Try Not to like ruin his kids life by being a real person listen but like yeah inevitably will yes I mean. I think it's really important for us to state that all of you know any kind of speculation into so whatever happened is purely speculation Because I really feel like what what happened is a person with a very vivid imagination. Imagination became completely paralyzed with fear. And it was like a a kind of you know. It was informed by the books that he was. WHO's writing the research he was doing like he was hanging out with art bell right in the book that would become the day after tomorrow and like you know He? There was this weird overlap for him between his friends who were kind of fringy and his friends who were intellectuals and he kind of got this weird You know slice of the Pie. where he he was getting really really smart conspiracy theorists and that's who he was surrounding himself and they really reinforced? Like you should be terrified. You should be terrified in in your cabin. You should be terrified that the planets explode and he I think he had like against totally speculative. I think he had a psychotic break and then I think he kind of recovered from it but couldn't integrate that into like his experience as he found some other explanation and he's opened that being a the possibility to kind of he says like something happened. Yeah but yeah. He's he's that's a yeah exactly we like he the the fact that he leaves that possibility open that he's never really actively trying he's not a biased. When there's a word for this and like the scientific method where where you're whatever it's like confirmation bias or something well he claims he's not somebody who lake UFO doctrine but it does feel like all of his fiction nations about like special people? Being chosen to commune with yes and otherworldly being and his most recent book is like his wife died and then I guess he keeps blog. or He's like channeling her he met. He has to meditate twice every evening in this special way because if he doesn't then the aliens will tap him and kiss him and wake him up and when he meditates he is able to feel his wife's presence and also his wife he and his wife had made a deal before she he died. She was sick for a long time. Said after we die. Whoever dies I don't directly? Try to contact me as a ghost. Do it through our friends. which like what's yeah okay? So apparently his wife passed away and then conduct contacted his friends and be like call Whitley. Yeah and it was like an hour and a half after she died. Yeah yeah which is bizarre. Your host son is your do. I just can't imagine yeah. It is like the shining. It's like what do you what what is that like to go through that when you're when you're a kid too it's like you need your parents to be stable. Even if they're not so like maybe they try to hide the fact that like they. Also don't you know what's going on in our afraid of things and so he's pretty clear in a few different moments. He talks about the fact that he tried to keep you know anything that would disturb his like he he tries is according to what he says he tries really hard to like preserve normalcy for his son. seems to feel really guilty about the times when his son became aware that something was going on. But it also kind of reminds me of you know The more gallons or more gallons for instance where it's something that you know no one believes you and of course there's that element to it and it. It's so isolating that if you find other people who claim to have experienced this and you know again like the folklore kind of builds builds on itself and people have more similar experiences because of that but you just form this really tight community and it Kinda Ostrich Blake. You're bound together by the only they're the only people think you're saying gene and well there's a really great x files episode. Yeah about communion one of the best x files episodes of all time called Jose Chung's from Outer Space which is about Charles Nelson Reilly playing a witless driver type. Guy Named Jose Chong who has culled from outer space and the cover is exactly the cover communion but with the alien smoking a cigarette. But it's like a classic episode also because it's kind of like a comedy episode And it is about people's different stories different overlapping stories about an alien abduction. And how they all. It's like a rush Amman. Yeah yeah thing where nothing really lines up at the end. You know it kind of like seems like he's a Kook but then it seems like what if he's not he's telling the truth great episode recommended to everyone. But that's where I encountered this for the first time. I had never heard of this book until you suggested it and now I have found out that it is so deep in the consciousness it is also just derailed. This man's writing career and and so I mean it's a hard book to read also because it's like in the way that when you read a book where it feels like somebody is having a mental breakdown in the writing and then it makes you feel like you're having a mental breakdown and timing of reading. This was also I thought really heavy because In the past wheels. Since we've been reading this book the Jeffrey Epstein the whole thing went from being a pretty straightforward but crazy story to a completely plausible conspiracy theory. It's not a theory that and that's the thing. Is that all of a sudden. You're you are reading mainstream news and completely entertaining the thing rob ability that there is a conspiracy right makes you feel you feel crazy because some of the stuff. They were posting on crazy days and nights and yeah me neither like where that stuff I saw I was like. Oh this is just going into pizza. Gate Stop Pizza Gate but then it was like no no this just like the grain of truth that was apparently in the telephone game of Pizza Gate. I got stuck down a very regrettable rabbit hole that did not start with me me looking into Epstein suffer. It started with something very too weird to explain here right now take too long. I ended up. I ended up on a very fringy. I wouldn't say it was like a message board but it was like that it felt like it was two steps away from that Rational wiki cool chillier. You know but like they were talking about there was a threat on Epstein and they were just saying like this. Is the thing like people make fun of Pizza Gate. 'cause they think it's like about about Hillary Clinton has a sex ring in comet pizza or whatever that place is called like we're talking about like a whole phenomenon shit and I was like for the first time I was like Oh shit seeing like in a weird way like because as that story started to zoom out I went on this other podcast. It's true and that's just about that stuff we're slipping that's the times we live in your brain conspiracy theories back for the left. That's what we set out to do. I know you know somebody who's seeing inherent vice it's like the actual best movie for the trump era because it's about Out at all. How all those things do lineup how it feels conspiratorial? Yeah in cities. Especially when you're just like oh like this person's in the pocket if this person really knows the people who shouldn't know each other for any reason except that money and power is changing hands eyes wide shut as the documentary. Ah Shut Israel. I'm not over that I do feel like I've become more at least driver a little bit because all this stuff has broken my brain a little bit of like Oh wait like there are like evil rich elites offering sex trafficking rings in broad daylight in front of people people just using the fact that they're rich cover for crimes. Nobody should be able to get away with Yup Then anything can be real. What's yeah but that's so that when you look back that with hindsight with like autumn's razor you're like yeah of course came up on crazy days and nights I was like take this is so detailed? How could it be fake? Yeah but it's like who like it's too crazy and far fetched and lake. Once clearly started implicating the Clintons. I thought it was just I right wing stuff but then it came out to be like just beat for beat true and then one of them not anti but him with many asses the other one was posting about some of that stuff he posted a great like three part blind item about it again. Not Seeing any of this is true agreed three I could not read it. I'll I mean it was just writing. I know but it has a terrible. It's like zoomed out on the software. It was like it's not even about the sex trafficking bringing about different nations. Having like secret deals with each other involving you know and that part again broke my brain up seen since is the fall guy. It's all like is everything is connected and then you can't do anything again after that you just start thinking that way about everything and suddenly you're writing books about. UFO's magic happens. I would encourage people to go to at least Strawberries website is called known countries. Yet he also does the podcast dreamland which was a former art bell podcast? He's like an active content maker. which is kind of interesting? Yeah then this interview we can link to of his recent. I mean he's still like I mean he's still well on the key. The thing that's funny website is that it is it is all this stuff and then stuff about climate change like really passionate like like cogent stuff about climate se come if he wants to come collective awards for being right about climate change. Now it'd be a great time for him to reappear and be like. Hey guess what yeah yelled it called it. I also. This is one last thing I wanted to say just as far as like believing him about this stuff I just like like so I I kind of started to play the game like if I wasn't alien civilization that was coming to study another species. How would I go about what it? What would be fun nerd game? That's like a lot of the like a lot of stuff. On first blush does look very dreamlike in kind of random and like feels like cobbled together from like some real corporeal experiences the way that it always sounds like surgery yeah But the one thing that I was thinking about is like the repeat things like like this this thing once you've had an experience you're going to have more and you've probably had once before it's just like well that's just having a control like if you're if you are studying monkeys in the wild you're going to tag them and you're gonNA come back and studied the same over time. Certain people are acting as control subjects for the alien. We'll yeah I mean that that makes makes sense to me. How are they being chosen? I don't know because they're very special. And they write great white. s what if there's like an Epstein island but it's a planet warble ain't nobody seeing what if there's like evil elite you know. They already have colonized. Would you be surprised if Elon. Musk already owned a secret planet. It'd be so surprised me stop tweeting. Would've just gone. Nobody should own a planet or an island. I agree Do you think do you think what do I think about. What should people own islands notion ocean wire people chosen? Yeah I mean so this I think for anyone who wants to answer that question. Go Look at the BUDD Hopkins Wikipedia. Because I I felt like it gave me such a good frame on this. I mean I do think that it's that you you know people who are he. Willie's drivers are really good writer like granted. He lost me by the end of the book and I was like I cannot. I can't because I didn't in trust him and I didn't enjoy being mired in the conspiracy. Twenty four seven. It also may start to feel like you're losing it a little bit. It has has like. I've only had to put down a book once before because it had that effect on me. And it was this Oliver Sacks book about hallucinations. Aw I read that literally how to stop reading it because if you're someone who's ever had mental health issues and you start thinking about your brain in the in which it can fail or glare out the human brain as green memories in this like. Oh Kay definitely sure. I've screen memories like screen screen. Memory about the matrix driver would say he was chosen because he's a really good communicator. With a very open mind and he I think that he would say that. Like the the creatures that he had written about in fiction That then ended up resembling the creatures that he met in the eighties when he was abducted. Or whatever That they had always been with right he was writing the book. Because I've already already been honoring. Yeah I mean I have to say like before reading this book I was way more open to the idea that this dude had met extraterrestrials. And by the end of it I was like. I don't think that happened happened. I haven't gotten to that part. Yes I'm still like pretty. Oh like I'm I'm not my first. My first instinct is not to be like. He's out of his mind. I it is. I don't think he's not quite like a psychotic break either to me because what it really sounds like an a gun. He's Catholic like Enlightenment Enlightenment. You know. Say Your special you ascend did and now you come back to Earth with knowledge that nobody else has and you have to live among regular the people knowing more than they do which was what he was feeling about climate change. That's true that's true actually inconvenient sort of truth an extra inconvenient truth is on town that Appel Gore was like and by the way I got this from alien right. You've been less would be done about an the alien. Would you be at all surprised the most lizard person present. You make me so happy if he was an alien like bring it on. Yeah yeah well I anyway. I still recommend people read this book. It's super interesting firsthand account. I'm putting that in. Air quotes the retrograde input or Retrospectively cinnamon hand account and as. He said himself if they are they can't be lies because even if they're not true he believes them and and I'm like okay. I that that I can digest. I mean something happened to this man. He's trying to process on he's honestly trying to bring us and it's working it if nothing else. If it's not a book about your foes which I think he would probably even. Yeah you did not say it's a book about. UFO's called communion. It's about communion. Well it's about the human in mind like the processing anything in his case. He has a lot of crazy stuff to process. Like you know I think it makes you think about your own experiences and stuff that you've been through which is like why it's so scary. Yeah and honestly I think one of the scariest things is the is the hypnosis this and they're aggressive memories and stuff like that and that is very it's a very good unintentional warning against doing that because without any oh Without any of that I think this book would have gone in a totally different direction. And the more you know about that the more you think. That's a very very shaky foundation to like. We're also the thing about hypnosis. Yeah it's just. The human mind is vulnerable easily manipulated. Poke around in there. That is the scariest I yeah. Yeah I am scared of it for those reasons but I was also just like what. Come out right yeah. Kalanick's is getting wanting Yeah what what would you. What kind of alien do you? I'd like to meet I don't know I mean I like the idea of well. I actually do like the idea of like the contact like alien it. Like especially after reading this like the alien that like minds your subconscious and presents as something that is compelling compelling to you it's like a of worship testified alien scary though it is but it's like very ill because I would want to know what what would it be. It's it's like or it's like even like stupid shit like Captain Marvel. There's a thing where they go and talk to. Whoever the great authority takes the form of like whoever however in their mind is like the most admirable person to them so she sees it at bedding? I personally don't care for in a space movie when they finally meet the alien and it's like your dad wife. Oh yeah or like child self. You know I would like is the the little ones ends in the jars from flight of the navigator. ooh Those are my platonic aliens. I want like who are those little weird guys from final fantasy like bulls. Yeah Yeah Oh yeah those would be cute or triples. Yeah that's something off docile. Yeah not overbearing. Something that purrs yes birds. You know the cat from sailor moon. Yeah shows up in the first day and starts talking to you. That's what I want. Well she's an alien cat ruled out some saying like. That's the cat comes to tell you that you're also an alien. Yeah that's my favorite thing about Salem. Also is that they're all technically aliens. REINCARNATED UH-HUH I start Well I think that's. That's it for communion. Thanks everybody nobody for reading along with us.

You're like fuck him a loser. This is so that was the only offer I've had so far and I took it a good one person now not really is that showrooming showrooming and I feel like such a cop. Is that what it's called square feel feel different. I don't know I did it once when I was a sophomore in college and it was fun.

I I think I'll be okay because it's like back in my it's in San Francisco which is where I'm from where I started so I'll be in a comfortable space and I'll be performing with friends and but Yeah I wouldn't. I don't think I'd want to just be out doing a show in some random. Yeah I remember when I was starting doing New Year's Eve shows in like they. They were like restaurant like like the the Sweet River Saloon. I think one and it was in the middle of the reading or Santa Rosa or something and just be Out in the middle of this restaurant hoping for the best. Yeah Riverboat not. I wish never working in restaurants restaurants and it. It was crazy to me the amount of people that make plan like restaurant dinner plans for New Year's Eve even all it was crazy. I'd like even working at restaurants in Times Square. My early twenties and stuff like that like the restaurants are packed on my who the fuck makes like is sully celebrating new years like at a restaurant. I don't know maybe says in Times Square packed like a decade. I did New Year's Eve shows. They were my favorite shows. People were very well behaved Improv. They will sketch you performed. The I would perform I. I prefer that so much more. The first year a couple of years ago it was the first year that I didn't do that and I was like. Oh I guess I'll go out like people do and I hated that with all my hours like oh no. I've made a huge mistake. This has gone to an Improv. Show the different types of saying you know would rather be doing this. I remember when we were in New York. Couldn't you kind of like you're starting out there. Is this kind of like ethos like near communes right. If you're not performing on New Year's Eve and are really yes it was like I did a show at the lowes movie. Would you go out to where the concessions were if you pay extra for. VIP You got open bar. I don't know what the what they were giving you. If it was like good stuff or not and then we were like you know in front of where the movie screen is. And they're all sitting the stadium style and have been doing. They're open bar thing wasn't it that they could go in a different route. Going to different groups have different different rooms in the middle of the lows. Oh sure L.. What is the murder at L. Roy or whatever that's when I'm not talking about the fact checking tyler murdering different but it was? It was sad right same page. I wore a nice dress. You're great career performance. I was at a total loss. There's a great photo of us from the lows forty thirty second or third or fourth. Maybe some thirty different. I had to be three hundred. No that's an AMC okay. This is what you were at the Nice one. Yeah all I know is it was just like those. That's a huge theater and people who are going to their different rooms and of course the whole point is that you've paid your paying for that free alcohol so everyone out of their mind and it's like it's alcohol and just like thirty steam trays of shrimp. Oh yes is there a lot of trees a lot of little broilers keeping some fried chicken fingers and I was like no this. This movie in some of those theaters is the are already an adventure show you were at the thirty fourth and eighth. One I would uh-huh I saw fruitvale station there. And Oh my double. Before a break-up that I knew was coming up being that theater was the most senior in your tendency to see really depressing movies around bad things so why is that is it part of a bloodletting. Well you know I love I love Catharsis persistence forced upon me. The first Christmas home after I came out to my parents and my father died. My mother and I went to see doubt the day after Christmas had a huge fight like the on Christmas Eve really speaking on Christmas and it was like an emotional Christmas and then we went to see doubt uh-huh afterwards went to an olive garden cried where they got different.

I was the last time I was in San Francisco. I New Year's Eve if I did it and then I was like you know one of my wait around for and I just left Greek. Yeah I know it's crazy. You think that New Year's is going to be a big deal and then it comes around and you're like What what do I need to like make plans for or even like any of the like I don't have you ever done the nightclub thing where you pay like a hundred and fifty dollars and that's what I was talking about? It was the worst. That's it wasn't even a nightclub. He was like a bar. All bars become come even worse than they already were like that and tonight fifty dollars to come in. But don't worry you get your first to drink if you can wait in line forever and you're like Oh yes yes sounds like a kick off the year. I don't know what that clever New York was. That used to be a church but now it's like God yes I did into seven. Three people all said that three on cool people it into a huddle room was it. Wild models are my God people. I would never advert until this year when you got him too late for this. That's okay never. We're too late for drugs guys.

I mean standing outside trying to get a cab on New Year's Eve or something the surge pricing of the Uber's. That's not what I want to be. I think we should all be partying January. Second I forgot got about a cab. Issue that cab uber. I once when I lived in San Francisco I once walked home from wherever I was. I said you know. It's time time for a stroll and I'd just like to in the morning. I just walked all the way across San Francisco to what last black men in San Francisco at a two. In the morning. It was fine. It was weird going through the tunnel. I had to do that. That was the thing I never thought I'd see myself do is be one of those people walking along the edge of the just trying to make it one hundred no no been. No one was too drunk that night. The Clinton you know so I'm sure I was too. I mean not like hammered but if I was too drunk wherever I was I would have been like I could just sleep here and that would because I've done stuff like that. Schober the walks. Yeah that's done with this high tail it across town. So are you over over walk. Are you guys doing big things for new years this year. We don't have any plants. I'm sure this is what happened. A couple years ago was we stopped making plans and then we ended up gained together with a couple people and it was a delight. Yes yes it was truly. It was like Jacqueline Chris.

I I mean if I could change places with her right now just a quiz and also be in your lap to see very the spine non threatening us now. I think this is the question we started with that. There was a huge hued. Gasp of what are you looking forward to. That's not when we went to break. What are you looking forward? Resolutions revolutions. Are you guys all going to remake your psyches. Two Thousand Twenty. Yeah you starting. Fresh Twenty Twenty Barbara watchers year. So what are we doing. Do you guys have do make resolutions. I've never really made. I've kind of like never read one for me Yom Kippur. That's when you make your resolutions. Jews we We we do things a little differently down in Judaism town really wear the data Hanukkah. What is your resume what have you what are you deciding? What do you make? What are you doing? I'm actually here's I'll tell you this I thought I'll hey I'll tell you this we've been out here. This is more like a continuing one. But when I WANNA like Rev up in twenty twenty I noticed that coming out here to Los Angeles Ellis. My brain changed and that I don't make a lot of things for fun anymore. My brain just like can you sell it and if I can't make it even if it's just like a dumb video I'm wake nick I gotta get back into the spirit of the thing. That is why I want to do this stuff in the first place so I got a dumb even just a stupid idea for a video to put on twitter or something like that. I WANNA I WANNA do that. I started doing that more in the last month or two and that's a good one. Yeah I did the opposite here. My brain went the other way. I was like what it doesn't make money but will hemorrhage money doing that all the time got I love. La My lift ever told me his resolution on the way here which is again. We're this is earlier. Hold on unprompted unprompted. No he asked me how I liked Hollywood and I was like I like it and he was like no. My resolution is for new years. Yeah to get the hell out of the city and I was like. Oh uh-huh driver your car. You can drive noir detective listening in the sequel equal. Not as good. It's still fun scared me. That's one and there's a lot of pressure to like come up with things and I feel like this guy's been stewing about that. I tried to think of something because of this and the only thing I could come up with because I usually don't do one because everything's perfect. Think of as somebody. We're here as I was like. Oh maybe I'll Delete some of the thousands of emails. I have May. Maybe I'll do. They'll do something like that. You now like right now on my phone. I have sixteen nine thousand hundred emails. What are you saying? Sixty nine thousand seventy three and I was like we know what kind of a lot I should find out. How many from best buy I haven't get rid of them all and start over? Yeah that's is I'm just one at first. You didn't really confused. They also realized now this might become a group of people trying to make me better intervention. There's there's everyone's pulling a letter. Is why letters little red dots on my phone. I I got to hit it immediately. I can't imagine yeah well. Here's what happens if it gets. It gets to a crazy crazy number. Then it's hard to say illnesses say. When did it start? It's been a slow build but then I realized my picture unless I delete stuff now that was like I wonder if it's because of that so then I I've been so I'd like today very very easily deleted like two thousand emails and was like oh I should do this. I gotTa do this. We'll do you have you have the G.. Miller has the promotions tab the Social Tab. Yeah just just delete the entire great a love it. Some of the some of those promotions good shot shut up. GRANDPA is sixty nine thousand four hundred twenty now do it for the the. The greatest douchebag number of all time sixty nine or twenty there are no. I was there earlier today. I got rid of it. I just feel like you know living in L. A. and I have a lot of girlfriends that are always like. Oh let's celebrate you. Know moons not in retrograde or whatever. Let's burn our intentions tonight. The time you know whatever the fuck it is so like all year long your resolution and this time of year is like when you actually I guess like say them out loud or to you guys on a podcast during the year. It's a it's a resolutions. Always end up being the same fucking thing you you want to do all year long. You tell yourself you're going to do so. I haven't figured them out and I have no mine. I mean minor like the same named I think like I feel like the older I get the more fearful. I've become like just like you. You know just an art in love in in life and work and things like that so I really I wanna go back to that reckless mindset. I had twenty eight so you know I didn't give a fuck and I was just like being fully myself. I felt like and now I'm a lot more like whether it's online online or around New People or whatever you know I try I like I'm more guarded and I don't like that because it's like we are all going to die and you know what the fuck am I like holding back because and it's so funny because you know like even like five years ago when I feel like I started to kind of feel feel this way you'd think Oh no if I tweet that or if I do this then sums are and none of those fucking repercussions ever happened like they really not a bad tweet. Something with that but like I'm talking about like or if you were to do like logging video or or something that you're just like fearful full of it usually. It doesn't matter I can do it. Yeah you are the woman who took a photo at Auschwitz. That's right giving the the forgotten all about that. Just go the lack. The worst people who are supposedly cancelled for doing the worship in the world are fine. Yes are Pfizer Pfizer if you had a bad tweet where you had a Typo or something. They're not that you're talking about whatever. Put anything that great. Get me canceled out into the world. I mean like something we're like oh so and so's going to judge or someone you've a crush on is going to judge me you know it's like life moves on and like you don't even give a fuck with that person thinks two weeks. I don't know if that sort of thing I should write that in my phone. Just look at every now and then myself. It's really beautiful. Oh Aw oh yeah. Sometimes I look at my own twitter feed or like instagram feed and I was like what like delete delete. Why no and you see this? It's as if other people are doing the same thing which of course they are. I know all of you've looked at their own. You know what's Tyler to the last six thirty six hours tally everything that I like to meet New People and then go to the oldest posing they have so they know. I'm fine. Have you done that done on that thing where you look at someone's instagram feed in the like a really old. I've done that I know that's GonNa seem odd They got as bad. I was like creeping on someone to see like a friend of mine where I was like. Okay she'll be now and there's like oh who's her girlfriend trying to see everything. I just want to know nosy and then I double double tapped and I was thinking but it wasn't even it. Was the girls pay double tap owner stranger from two thousand seventeen then they undid it but I was like. It's already been liked to that question if they were not you so alert right like once you've liked it even if you still come up so and so they have the trough you're push alerts. Are you hoping that you would tap. It would go away a signal to the past. That's what wreck it Ralph is about the sequel. I've seen them but when enrich the Internet China Naomi's look to emulating from McClintock. Take us back. We asked you before this started. We said you talk about Ralph Way too much. And the sequel. Ralph Riggs the Internet for for the time being. Can you not bring it up. I know I know I tried. It's been four hours. It was good for so long. Kevin do you have any resolute do you. Do you know whatever I don't I just don't I don't like I don't I don't like starting at the beginning of things because I feel like that puts too much. I don't like to start a thing on Monday. I'll do Tuesday. We'll see how it works out because otherwise it's too much pressure and so with New Year's Eve or whatever I'm just like yeah it'll you know I'm just I'm just trying to get home. That's all I'm thinking of. Does anyone do. This is more for a birthday because for a birthday I do I link. I'll have I'll have a way more of crisis where I'm like. Okay after my birthday. I'm really going to pull together against New Year's birthday birthday. You feel like Tekken Yeah. We're I'm like wait. Yeah and then that next day you're like Oh that was just a day. Yeah then you forget later club now you know. I'm probably the most significant thing that's ever happened me. On on New Year's Eve I was broken up with on New Year's Eve. Oh hours hours before like a party. Oh God and it was. Let's not was it really fun. Or you're just saying that. In retrospect it it was fine. It was good. We're still great friends.

Now I'm got to try to tell you why don't we take another break. And then come back actually Kevin talking about well. You said it wasn't your. What was your before we go? What was your worst first before we get to the break? What was your worst New Year's Eve if not getting broken up with was Well there was a couple years ago. There was one where Oh the one. With the break-up we I went out to the party everything was fine and then I came back and I lived in this big house. Where are there? Were a few people living in the that sounds really weird but anyway Roommates and in a couple of squatters one of the one of people saying they're her friend came to stay with her and that woman lost her damn mind and got an argument with our roommate's boyfriend and then at some point these people started banging on the door in the front yard and we were like what the hell and they're yelling at us and I was like. Oh we're going to have to is shit going down amount like well after the you know answers. Or they're like there's a woman on your roof and she's screaming to call the police right now and I'm like what and it's this girl girl who was visiting and she had I don't know what she was on but she had busted out of the window and was hanging on. Just this little you know well sort of wedge of a rooftop screaming that she she can come back in the house and they needed to call the police smell. That's true so that was probably my by worst. It was that was annoying. Do you think it was her worst. Remember she was okay. I think she's on you every year. I taught myself. I think she had a wonderful time that night on a rooftop and had to be dragged back in the house and then kicked out we had to kick her out. Some random dude showed up terrified and took her away way. Wait what was it some some random dude that was connected to her all this Guy Talk Radio and the guy had just met her. Oh because he was. It's like hey I don't know. And he was some kid. He's like twenty one. She's drama shows up. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Why was it was a great by Rando Cal Rizzi and okay okay? WE'RE GONNA go to a break.

That's looking at right now. But she might be a little wasted Huh. Aw that is the stare of a high person. Will you picked trigger guys while I tell you about this terrible New Year's eve of my that I had it was New Year's Eve oh eight December versus an eight. Oh nine now living in Australia and it it was like you know. It's upside the world so the seasons reversal. You can be real slutty on New Year's Eve and he's not stupid. Okay you know what I mean like warm. So you're like let's make it work and I was at a friend's house party and then I was going to go downtown where they were doing fireworks by the Sydney Harbour. You know by the Opera House and it's going to be gorgeous it just it's kind of like the equivalent but at Times Square. But I felt like I'm not from here so let me do that. You know what I mean like I would never two million dollars I was like I'm the call and okay. There was a Swedish gentleman anyway. Yeah I was like I'm going to go and so I go and it's like a New Your Times Square New Year's eve and it's like packed and I am trying to get through the crowd and basically already the fireworks might have stopped or something where basically I am walking against everyone so a sea of people walking backwards and I'm trying to walk forward. It's get to the Swedish man's apartment and I hear like I'm walking to get him in a little on SAMBA. Honey in a really doing it. I was young or nine of SAMBOL Louis mini dress. Too Damn tight back when Arca suck and my gut and make it work. Oh I thought like a barbershop. Quartet coral caruana wonderful. So you're hitting that harmony. I am walking and I hear I hear a a glass bottle and okay somebody drop some bill and I looked down some what has happened. I don't even know and I look and I go home. Also spilled their drink on me. No no someone has kicked like a Shard of glass bottle into my foot like the top of my foot and when I say it on a street corner with a pool of blood around me I am not because honestly look down there and then I'm having trouble walking and then it was. Oh the blood is coming off of me because it looks so bright red that I thought someone like dropped a fucking cosmo or like like like blood style. You come how out of a pool of material out of it was ridiculous and I'm like literally standing there and so now to talk about probably like this girl picking up going to twenty when when you're a random guy barely know so and so at first I was like Oh really help me but I was like. Hey I'm supposed to meet you to come here because I can't go and then which is so funny. 'cause I'm standing there. There was this whole moment where people walking down like walking the street. And there'd be a little like Hey lady and then they were like look down. uh-huh leaned up against I remember like the burberry store. Downtown has fancy stores leaned up against the wall of the Berber store. 'cause I don't know what to do blood everywhere and then like some fun random asset you can always find some Africans no matter where you go in this world and there was some African in who was like. I'm a doctor. I go. What kind of doctor? Because even when I'm off I go out no you. Yeah and he was like a sit down he goes. Sit Down and put your foot up and I can't sit down in his dress alike you anything. Sit down down. And then he tried to like get some paper towels from somewhere and then of course again because this New Year's Eve downtown okay. Yeah there was an ambulance on his way to somebody else. That stop forbid someone else is having a heart attack stop to grab. It was crazy. I didn't sort of like the guy. One of the guys went over there. It was like she needs help and I was like I'm not I didn't know what it was but I thought Oh ambulance situation and then of course I was like I don dobie nameless. I'm thinking it's GonNa cost me a million dollars Australia where you can get in an ambulance walkaway. Fine pay you the exact Edmonds Act and to be fair a an Australian ambulances just a drunk guy with a wheelbarrow honestly. He was not that far off. It was like literally like a young dude where he was like. He's a you're right may right the blood one stop sign and so I end up so he liked the Amazon. Just gives me like a little tape. They do to kind of like close up something and then I ended up going to the Swedish guy. He was his friends and they had had party of the apartment. And then we end up like watching reruns of sex in the city on the on the TV. And then Kinda made out a little bit and then the next day was the size of a golf ball and are gonNA fucking Watt and I ended up golf ball like the top. It was like literally a giant like swollen on the top of my foot and what I find out and this is why I said I'm a he was. He's barely because I was. I was staying in a family. They rented a room. And that's where I was living in the woman she was she's Taneomi. I do something where I can't come down the stairs limping she goes. We're taking you urgent care so I go and the doctor is like Yutian has stitches but now it's too late late. 'CAUSE you're supposed to get them within the first twelve hours of an injury where he's like. Okay is too late for me to do that. He's like you really need it. And then I was like okay. He's just cover up and keep it clean. Confine them like a week later. I'm still limping. I had to quit my job. I go to a separate doctor a week after happens and go. Yes and he goes okay. Can you wiggle your toes. That was the first time anybody asked me that. And this entire process I could not I could not see. This is what I'm saying is like the healthcare is free. But it's the best okay. One asked me to move my feet before before that happened so it turns out and cut a tendon. And so it's like your big toe. Has One tendon in the other toes. Have another tendon. It cut the other toes tendon so I couldn't and this year to get that movement back in those so then my resolution for two thousand thousand ten you know coming off of that was. Don't kill yourself. It'd be try not to get murdered so that was really the worst New Year's eve of all hooking up with a Swedish man watching the sex and the city re run holding your foot up for leverage so injury base because of a hookup on New Year's Eve. I just stay at the Party I was at you know what I mean. I was too eager to leave. The party. Knows wearing these boots with a wooden soul and I knew they were slippery. Sorry but I forgot because I got a text I gotta go and I slipped on the stairs and like twisted. I like sprained my foot but I was like I'm fine. I've got somewhere to be. And then Mike thought people were cab to entertain someone. I woke up in the morning and was in so much pain that I almost threw up and like had to crawl. Oh like practically nude through his shared apartment apartment to find bathroom that had advil and then I like sort of like cross back poked at him. I was like I need help. He's like like well. I'm going to work now so I walk to get a cab. Oh great yeah so then. I went home my my roommate and best friend. Mimi played a bacon. Hello everybody listening. If you're going out tonight don't go to a second location. Yeah Yeah Yeah you get eleven. PM totally. I remember in actually two thousand. What did they call it when all the computers are K.? We went. I was in college and we went to Vegas just because I was in college college here in l. a. and we always went there but new years is going to be this big huge fireworks like what you're saying basically Like Sydney just a lot of people and we are so so excited but one of my girlfriends was on. UCLA's dance team and she had met this older just talking already looked identical to daddy warbucks from Jenin. He said all the what's not exactly and so in his name was like Jordan or something. He's basically like the dance team pimp and she was trying to get us on board like Oh come on he hangs out all those really expensive. craps tables and Blah Blah Blah. I was like let's just like you know. Get Shit faced and go to the club you know but anyway so Jordan was going to take us to this really really cool party Off The strip and Blah Blah Blah. Well we end up going with him and I have a feeling like the whole time I was like a lot of friends always fell for guys like as with the become the fuck on so anyway we get in like this caravan and they just like shut. There's probably like ten of us in this suburban and they take us us off the Strip and it's at that point it was like eleven thirty five eleven. Are we going to this. This is a huge fucking off the Strip party. We end up on like the twenty fifth floor in a building under construction. Uh well miles from the strength and we just sat there with to drink and like you just see the fire like a whole strip is just partying partying. And I'm just looking at my friend like you fuck and the biggest new years our lifetime. Oh My god God I believe hold up. Don't poke around in there okay. What did Daddy warbucks? Looks like where was what was this place yet in an abandoned building that I think probably a friend of his like hat under constructor he kept telling us it was like a penthouse party penthouse party. And it wasn't it was like a building. Yeah I'm not kidding you Foley under construction like and what was he doing there was like hey ladies he realized realizes was insane he was trying to my friend and he had been. What was his plan with that? I think I think he actually sleep just like wanted to have like girls young girls around him. It was just like one of those guys but Yeah Tank No. He was just like twenty one like he was. Probably I would say like sixty or seventy ASAS fifty. Yeah and that really felt like for me for some reason that could be on the coast. That's what that's what I love about this so I have a feeling I feel like this guy didn't think it would work and so the whole time you're on your way there. He was like. Oh No this is my thank God. They're still coming. You WanNa be. Oh my gosh running water. I like that second location though. That's so true. Don't go to a second location case. Did he ever mention his dark passenger. Now let's see Dexter Dexter. He would line it with plastic. You know before killing you and then wrap it up because it keep it tight right but a lot of those Henley's yeah tyler. Laugh the second concerns about the guys do it. Yes ended if you Hey what time. We found one hundred dollars New Year's Yup the general conversation that one hundred dollars we done every a couple of therapy. Because that's how I it starts with. Open your heart your time for couples therapy and ends with. Hey one time I. Five hundred dollars. The couple's therapy we went to. UCSB Party Act. Yeah it was the first year we were together. Maybe maybe secondary I the second and then it was like some party and I just like looked down. I have a good eye for finding money on the ground cool and so even in the crowded dark party I was like that's money and the Andes. A good person see this. Will that someone's money. Who should we give it to go? Who Am I? Don't walk up to say. Is this show. There's no there's no one of your your hands okay. Let's hear your plan. No US through it. I through my head says I wrote. I did relent did I said we should find someone. And then as I went through the logic of what can we do shit but we agree. The play thing would have been to get one hundred dollars worth Mozzarella sticks and that was a missed opportunity but it was like at a big place a big party. Yeah and so it was like who like. There's no person that was like in charge of the Place House. You don't do anything the first person you ask. Yeah like so. It wasn't just people somehow got infiltrated people. I I got robbed at night and came out with a hundred dollars wasn't me. I can't find out she founded in someone's I opened up someone's thing. They had with them on their shoulder. Free Coats and one of the other room. No but see. This is the thing because that's what people make fun of me for for keeping my personal me all the time and yes I will take it on stage. But that's the thing though you go to a party and just putting your shit down in a warehouse now so all all these people's bags got my purse and I'm looking for money on the floor.

She's basically seeing it all. And now she's ready to share a story her exclusive audible memoir entitled Be Baddest Bitch in the room navigates and takes you on a journey through one of the most creative periods of Music time-line Ladies and gentlemen. Please welcome our guests on quest labs in Sophia Chang Very happy to thank. You felt like you. You're killing it with the MERCH. I think that one teaser kind of other kind of scheming on his jacket. Even though this jacket they may be another one too. That haven't uneven warn yet to audible there you go see what does that on the back. It says Mother Lover Hustler Warrior Hustle. Worry right well I'll I'll start at the top asking. Why why did you feel at this point in your career? Now is the time to share your story. And what do you think we can learn from your journey. So Oh Amir. I'm sure you were told this for years. To of for years. People said you got to write a book to write a book you know because of our proximity to do. You're actually an artist. I was artist approximate awesome. It and I just couldn't wrap myself around how that was not an exercise in narcissism. And you know what am I gonNA do. Oh I hung out here. I did this and I was I. That's that's not interesting to me. But when I started working universal in two thousand fourteen and I took on a number of men. Tea's like you bill straight out of college twenty two right and they were all women and I understood that my the vast and varied experience particularly as a working mother as a working single mother could be instructive than I was like. Okay if I can be of service to people people then I'll step into the spotlight but before that I simply wasn't interested so you you just wanted to strictly stay behind the scenes I did I did I was oh you know. Don't look at the one behind the curtain. I- skirted the red carpet. I never wanted to be in the interviews. I never wanted any of that Now you know I'm I'm going to be everywhere but in in terms of what people can glean from my memoir. I mean what I say is that my memoirs for anybody who ever felt undervalued under heard under seen anybody who said yes in the face of so many no society. You know anybody who kind of pushed up against whatever confines were placed on them in any boxes that were placed on them and anybody who dared to tell their story and the lessons that I hope the people can glean is that I think that what you will gathers and I'm pretty fearless now. Granted I have always had the middle class safety net. So it gives you a privilege to be a little bit more fearless than others others But I got fired I got hired. I quit many many times over. My you know. My Lincoln profile is like reading woman piece. It's you know it's just a matter of I think it's really important to pursue your passion and for first in Asian immigrants That is really not something that we're taught to do right to pursue your passion. Exactly we are so it. It is so narrowly prescribed lawyer doctor under scholar Engineer Right. And if you want to stray from this out it's very very difficult and I understand it now as a mother but also looking at my parents and thinking of the sacrifices that they made as immigrants leaving everything. They knew behind and coming to Canada in my case. They don't really want to hear me. Say I WANNA be a sculptor right right because in their mind. They're like old. We didn't leave everything we know. And we love so that you could go do this profession session that we see as kind of unsafe in a way are you the only child or DFW older brother Ivan older brother did he follow the the family he did but he's also extremely passionate about it. My brother is he sought Chang. He's a tenured. English professor at Vassar. He's a ten smartest people I know. And that's his passion So Oh French lit was my passion until I heard the message and I went in and I was curious about how it became. You're passionate and I was reading about the house. Now's candidate right. Yeah but that still doesn't mean that becomes your passion to study in college and speak it fluently because you are well I I what I will say is that I'm fluent in speaking English with the French right which is far more interesting and much. More Fun You know I grew up in a family of academics. My father God rest Cecil was mathematician. You know again. My brother became a professor. My mother was a librarian so I grew up in a household where everybody was reading. You know and my parents points. Were reading the classics in English. Which I think is extraordinary and again because it was just always assumed that I would follow suit? It didn't occur to me to think outside outside of that paradigm so that was the suit that was that was within the suit right so now do they understand well. I know your father isn't with US anymore. But your mom does she noted. You're a pioneer pioneer. Because like you said you said you wanted to the first Asian woman in hip hop. That's the pioneer because there are a lot now I wonder not. I don't think my mother would describe his opinion China and to be honest with his jacket. for thirty two years up until right now when she can actually tell her friends that her daughter wrote a book. My mother couldn't tell you what I did. There's no way they're like she wouldn't understand what it means like. What does it mean to do? An are my mother was born in North Korean. Nineteen thirty two. You know what I'm saying like. She's she knows the guys like what it was the moment when she met with those who did and they were all really gracious and she. Yeah she met a bunch of the artists that I managed. Yeah attitude like I know people understand me Kinda collectively. I roll whenever whenever I mentioned that. It took me two albums to tell my dad that I was in the root boy. It's that that fear of wanting to disappoint your parent or not wanting learning to disappoint your parents and you know my dad was busted his ass. Since I was five two point private schools like to go his route. And so so for you to like sneak out of it to do some you WanNa do is heart like when did you first of all with Vancouver. What what was the environment like before? I know that you come. To Jesus. Moment was hearing the message by grandmaster flash and the furious five but before. Then what was your life generally early like in Vancouver so it was very comfortable. You know Vancouver's beautiful and it's green and lovely again. Middle class went to went to public schools but I was very much a yellow girl in a white world. Who wanted to be white? No question I was born in nineteen sixty five and so when I'm ten right right and I'm coming of age so to speak everything I see in the media whether it's television film commercials or magazines is Whiteness Whiteness. Every every representation of beauty and power and sex appeal is white and so I wanted to be white and to be frank I kind of wonder how does a person of color growing up in that not want to be white right and as I shared the story I have had so many people say to me. I felt felt the exact same way and so I was. You know I'm watching these shows in these movies and I yeah it was You know I grew up getting called Chink Jap Gook for sure I got you know. Chinese Japanese dirty knees look at these all of that stuff because racism then was just simply not as codified defied and so kids would be in your face and the thing that I learned very early on to was. You're learning this from somewhere right right and you're probably learning some of it from your parents. Maybe they're not teaching you that charming Little Song but they are somehow instilling in u or rather not instilling feeling in you. The the you know the virtue that you shouldn't be ashamed person and judge people but you know and make prejudgments about about somebody based on their skin. So you're descending isolated community you weren't and you weren't amongst like your family and there was never get my cousins to fuck you up or no no it wasn't it wasn't really like the hat We weren't that isolated because my parents were part of a burgeoning Korean community but we were all immigrants. Everybody's parents spoke with accents right. We all ate food that looked and smelled and tasted different. All of our parents had quote unquote. Funny Names James so there were all of these things all of these markers that clearly indicated that we were other right and the world never ever stop telling us that we were other whether it was making fun of my parents names again saying something about our food. Thank you why people for no acknowledging that Kim she's a superfood and the thinking unless you think you would invent boom breath I don't think so You know all of the all of these things that kind of diminished right who Who we were? And you know. I've been thinking a lot lately about visibility and eraser for and I think that any of us who live on the margins understand understand what it is like to be systematically institutionally erased and so in in kind of denying my parents history history their heritage their culture. And Making Fun of it to me you are diminishing and you're erasing them and I certainly didn't have this language when when I was a child but I really felt that I was That I would you know in in making somebody feel other your necessarily making them feel lesser. I see was Sophia. Your birthday or was it that that's a good question no So everybody in my extended family. He has a Korean name. I was the first person in my family. Born outside of Korea and my father chose to name me after a Polish mathematician addition and that was a conscious decision on his part. Okay yeah I see so Not many people know this about Vancouver Besides having one of the best most adventurous ice cream parlors have all the time shadowed to Casa gelato over five hundred flavors. They I didn't pay for that plug. Sorry you know home is not. Many people know that the national national anthem of hip hop was created in Vancouver in Mushroom Studios The incredible Bongo Band's Apache was was actually created in mushroom studios in Vancouver Holy Shit. I didn't know that that's that's amazing. And much more. You know so. Yeah so for me. It's not shocking at all that your passion for hip hop culture. Because I'm sure that you know people Vancouver. How did you find that moment? But you know the the national anthem of hip hop was was born there so tell it was about that moment where you heard the message and I you know for a lot of us that were around real time like the message was definitely one of the besides rapper's delight to me. The message was one of the first what I call war of the worlds moment where you stare at the speaker. You're wondering what the Hell is this. Like uh-huh what was that experience like for you and how did that transform you. I WanNa talk about that and then I want to ask you about your experience. I'd be very curious to hear about your experience the first time you heard it too So for me you know. All I'm seeing around me is whiteness and then I'm seeing yellow this because their Asian immigrants there. There are lots of Chinese and Vancouver And then there are some Brown folks. Meaning South Asians right but I have no exposure to black votes and letting x folks and again all the representations of people of color are are coming through the media and that at the time and still largely as the case is who the white male lens now and I also wasn't because I grew up in Vancouver. I'm listen to top forty radio. I'm listening to white music. I have no exposure to this remarkably robust and rich tradition of Gospel. Rb Jazz. None of that. I'm not exposed to any of it so when I hear the message I'm in Twelfth Grade. There's this kid raid the Greek kid. He He loved music and he brings twelve inch record to school. We're in the lunchroom Where we're in this music room at lunchtime? And he he puts on the record. Now the thing that I always loved was dancing and so But I listened to disco actually to be fair I always loved dancing and so immediately the beat hits me in the solar plexus right so I have a visceral response and then I hear the lyrics and I just think i. I don't even know what I was thinking. But I remember I found found it. So compelling and in retrospect when I think about it I think it's because it's the first time I am and again I didn't certainly didn't have this language sixteen seventeen that I heard people of color talk about themselves and represent their Own World as opposed to white Hollywood saying this is what Brown People Yellow People Black folks do right and I am also. There was a sense of urgency and anger and pride that resonated with me really deeply because again being a yellow girl growing up in a white world who wants to be white. I didn't feel pride. I felt shame and embarrassment right right and so I hear the message and then I think wow and also on a French major so I'm literature major and I studied poetry and I knew it was poetry. There was no part of me that was I. I don't understand why people don't think it's poetry. I think because poetry and I think it's literature and then and then I see the run DMC video for King Iraq so I've only heard the message and then I see King Rock and I'm like. Oh Aw oh my God right you know arms you know just exactly the B boy stance and just this this claiming of me and this is who I am and I will not let anybody else to find me nor will I let anybody else tell. Oh you who I am. I'm fucking telling you who I am. That was revelatory. But I I'd love to ask you because the message is the first song that I heard right. Certainly not the first hip hop on the you heard. What struck you as being different about it about the message? ourself into that point Of course like I was eight. When Rapper's delight came out so that was just? What the Hell is this? And the second second time I had that moment was not many people write about The adventures of grandmaster flash and the furious the veteran's grandmaster flash on the wheels of steel. Basically the first record that demonstrates cutting some trying to decipher how this noises made and can do so. My Dad's thing the and all that shit so but with the message stop scratching my Isaak's records. Great I I would say that sit in my dad's car and came on the radio and even he had to take a pause. It like it but everything in that song hit me because I didn't know none of what none of those street terms were. I didn't know what a pimp was. My six year old cousin had to tell me like I was like she had to get a pit like last night. Pips could make it on. Yeah but literally everything like you know one of the train. I'm like wait. They're pushing people on the train platforms and the midnight train Georgia platform but to me to me. The last minute of that song when they got arrested Yo that scared the shit out me. And then that's that was. That was a moment where I feel like the first father and son Talk Really happened where my dad told me like. You know that could be you that that might want husbands. That could be the forty ninth street and just the whole like man. You know my first lecture about police came of that song I was like wait. Why why are they getting arrested in what what's what's going on here? You don't remember the ending like what does that again targeting like at. I wasn't old enough to understand when stevie wonder did that on living for the city But hearing that that definitely I'll say the last minute of the message is was Such just a paradigm in my life. That's where I was told who taught fear of the police and whatever you do straight up you know all that stuff so yeah that that affected me in ways that I can't imagine how my father impacted people I really hope they know how they impacted active all the time when you know whenever I see them how that is. That's amazing. Thank you for sharing. It really seems like a from so many of the interviews views that we've done here that the message is like the the equivalent of the Beatles. Ed Sullivan Performance. You know that people or people people who are that. That's when their life change. Well Ed Sullivan Ed Sullivan. I'm in TV. I'm the wait viral now. Youtube like everyone. Watch the ED Sullivan Show on Sunday nights at nine pm on CBS. So if you had the platform of being on the Ed Sullivan Show your career was made. And the Beatles made their American debut on the Ed Sullivan in show and everything changed after that like my parents is watching them. Did they ever television. Yeah were they born. They won't be difficult don't i. Just don't think I don't think that was forever. Well here's the thing. My relationship with the Beatles Steve I was just saying and then I kinda do my relationship with the Beatles actually. I knew all the black artists who covered the Beatles before I even got into the Beatles so it took a lot of impact at the age of eighteen realize like Oh gladys knight and. The pips didn't do that song. I am bill withers didn't do the song first and Wait stevie wonder if we can get out for nothing are households. Were different in a way. That's like my as my mom woodstock. She's like girls. What the fuck? No I know I get it. I mean the Beatles definitely impacted a lot of music lovers. It's not just their their target demographic s but you were even if you were black. You were watching at Sullivan show. Welcome to the year.

Better get home insurance right So how when did you make your move to America like like I was I was twenty two and I was literally writing out my graduating essay and I went straight to the airport. I skipped graduation graduated. We were just talking about this when I was so anxious to get back to New York so I have to. I have to give it a little bit of context so as a French major first of all living living in Vancouver. I knew I wanted to break out of and Cooper and as a French major. Maybe she'll sleep the right of course and then I went to Paris and I met the French and I was like oh no. I'm not doing this and then in my final year of college I came to New York and I met Joey Ramone. I thought he was Johnny. I called them. Johnny Joey addresses soul and I had I had heard the message I had visited New York and I knew okay. This is where I wanted to be as a friend. Decision decompress on right. I was like a fish to water when I moved here. I stayed with legendary rock critic. Nick legs McNeil and his girlfriend and they introduced me. It got me a job working at Paul Simon and then I kind of an eighty six eighty seven and then is grisly. Exactly on the. You're so correct. You really are like this. How do you keep it on your head Yes so it was. He's coming off the worldwide Graceland tour. Okay so do you have a regular job during times. I'm trying to figure out you said. So what regular job is. I'm the assistant to his tour. Managers coming off great for before. Paul Simon like how you I I think I might have found like I had a job working at a studio but also at that time. Yeah New York was not as expensive when me and my friends talked talked so this is in the late eighties early nineties when me and my friends talk about it where we lived in that time none of us could afford to live. There are no fucking way. What part of so I was living? Well I lived on the upper west side with Columbia students for a while but then I live downtown at fourteenth and seventh and then I lived at the archives. which is this really beautiful beautiful white glove? Br Building Elevator Doorman building in the West village. Not a shot could afford to live there now not a shot. I mean when I was when I was coming no-hitter nobody lived. Nobody lived in Brooklyn. Sure as fuck nobody lived in Queens and now all of my friends live in Brooklyn and Queens. Because we can't afford Manhattan and anymore like nobody can afford the city anymore so it you know. I can't afford the apartment. I moved to Brooklyn apartment. It's really tough some but they're also three of US living being in a three hundred sixty square foot studio but we were like in early twenties and who gives us probably like one hundred dollars. What was that? What was the environment like Beckton? 'cause because it I would imagine that mid late eighties was more that was post anterior. So the first era of downtown now New York scene. So what was the the scene into So what was really amazing about the scene at the time was that it was really Lee. Small and I'm not going to say insular because it wasn't insular it was small and it was focused but it was also very inclusive Yousef and we were all at the same clubs so you had deejays. MC graph artists be boys all there but you also had managers and in our publicists agents attorneys. I mean you had every single sector of the industry there because in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven hip hop is still a relatively nascent industry. Three okay right and so again. It's localized and it's centralized and you had. DJ's like red alert. You know and we would go anywhere where red was spinning. You had Clark Spinning. We would go anywhere the Clark was. Would you go so there were there. Were different clubs. There was a there was a moving club called. There was payday payday and it was these three promoters. It was chuck beaver an Patrick Moxie and they would. They would move around and they they started to name so they named the club's after chocolate bars so there was payday. There was one hundred grand. I show right. So they're named after a bunch of chocolate bars and they they could roam now. This was at a time where you could do this. No Way. Could you do this now. Not Shot right like I live down in the lower east side and I'm pretty sure that one of the clubs that that I went to back in the day was housed in one of the high schools like they rented out high school auditoriums. They rented out Abandoned like Chinese restaurants and stuff like like that and it was so amazing because again this before the Internet. There's no doubt and we would they. Would they would hand out flyers and then we would just all call each other and leave messages on each other's answering machines google it and we would. We would just make sure that we were all there and there was a feeling of community because we they were all there for the music. This is where records were broken. Clark Kent singlehandedly broke color me bats. I WANNA sex ex- you up sex you up and I remember being there. I think it was actually did. He's house when Puffy had a club. over here on fifty four street and you know none of us had heard the song literally. None of us had heard the song he had a white label. And the opening strains come on. And you know you're on the desks when you're dancing and then you just stop because you don't know the record and the record came came on and then in the became an egg Oh shit and years later at twenty fourteen at universal I was in the internetwork doing a anr Admiral Island Sam. Who was one of the members of color? Me Bad said that they were in the club that night and that was the first first time they heard their record played. San was that George Michael Vanilla Ice James or the other one. Kenny Kenny. Gee How did you know the album helped. I didn't even know the time. Chance was the second one enjoyed. That was my join so so it was a really really close It was a really really close knit community and you know it was such a village alleged inside new. Do you know right right before fat cat on fantastic the chance to talk about time chance right all right. Hey this is beautiful community and I was welcomed into the community and I was embraced. And I'm really grateful for that and that was a privileged because hip hop obviously was is not of my making you know it was not my world and yet hip hop was like come in so F- and you know the first people were crazy. Legs and DJ Jay Scratch at the New Music Seminar. Yeah let legs has the store where he's like. I'll never forget the first time I saw you looking across going. Who is that little Asian human? That knows all the words to Brand Nubian step to the rear right. There's there's like. I'll say in early nineties night. Oh See. That's the era art. The era that people mostly tell us about the shows like Latin quarter and all that stuff but kind of a SOB's period. I don't hear a lot about so I don't always wondered L. Q.. And all that predated me for sure I yeah I never went to land. Quarter never went to Dan. Syria most of my all. Certainly my friends who grew up in New York did so but you know the other thing. That's interesting about that era. Is that so you have these small Roman clubs right but you also have mega clips and they're all gone. Palladium dorm tunnel tunnel. Right the attornal limelight. These places were dare go to the tunnel I did. I did at at certain point though I stopped because here I think Chris Lady God wrestling wrestling lady was like. Don't come self doubt is like don't come. Can I ask your question. I don't know if this is uncomfortable. But I'm just as I'm listening because you are to me a pioneer in ways Because you're in a club you knew auto lyrics and stuff like that. How did you navigate around the N.? Word and how did you realize that was like a hot button because you're from Vancouver and there weren't aren't we weren't around and be like well. This ain't cool and this is cool and because even before hip hop I grew up knowing that even though oh I was called Chink Japanese Gook I I knew that the N. Word it's it's used against people the way that those words were used against me so even if it's in the lyrics and my favorite artists are saying it it never felt right to me ever because I do know. Is that weird. The thing where it has been made is different than than most slurs because it has already made cooling away and other others have issues dealing with that like I don't get it. It's so cool to say. Yeah I yeah I yeah I can't. So what was your I inside industry job as far as hip hop is concerned. Where did you first? It was a Job Doing anr at Jive. So I met the Captain Aka. Sean Carousel God. Rest his soul He was doing a job he. Sandra trump called quest. and He. He said I'm moving to the west coast because of the time the west coast was had a burgeoning hip hop scene right. He said Celtic I moving to La. I think you should interview for my job. So Wii interviewed for his job with Barry Waste very very very smart president of Jive records and Barry gave me the job although he did tell me he said the second I walked in the door he went off. She'll never get the trump John. What is Berry like I meet many people that work with him? What is he like as because really I mean berry was to me? He was almost Def jam before Def Jam because he's the one that signed like philly artists short the entire power label made it his own and all that stuff. Before you know Russel's rick out establishment. What was he like does area? I believe Barriers Cornell Grad Barry is also the son of High Weiss and high was also in the music business and Berry is so smart so so smart. You know you're in in rooms of people in as soon as they start talking you go. Oh Holy Shit. You're so smart. He was he is also one of the funniest people I know like literally Perry. I was sitting here in thirty seconds. He could be laughing. He didn't incredible impersonation he was amazing as a boss. He could be pretty exacting And you know Berry very so there were all these trades back in the day there's billboard but then there's Gavin there are there's FM QB. There are all these traits and all of these trades many of them have local local record sales reports right berry would go through every single one and if he saw an artist sold fifty copies of the cassette in Kansas. He'd be like call that person so you're absolutely right. I mean Berry signed short I mean not but you know jive signed short. They signed spice one you know. They had their tentacles out really far and I think think that was berries vision to understand really early on that hip hop would expand far beyond New York. So He's I love working for very. I learned so much who did you. What artists were you? Did you sign anybody a job doing your terrain. I signed food. nickens casual souls mischief. I signed an amazing artist. Name is Kilo hello from the West Coast. Unfortunately I left and that that didn't ever happen. So those are the artists. Yes Oh my hud. And then I worked with Tribe and care us one and Yuji K.. And and you know a a bunch of other. I mean they had an amazing roster. How did you guys all right? So speaking of Yuji K- You know kind of the the globalization Zalin or no the the not the globalization where I guess hip hop really going national. Sure how. How are you guys able to because in before depth? GM guys were. I am going to other. Terry's Not New York. Yeah signing artists I would philly with Jeff Oil and and steady steady being schooling and then expanding out. So what was it about you G K and spice woman and well too short and wasn't volume ten. Also no no. He's on our proper. But what was it about those ours. Especially what you G K I I think for. I didn't sign any of those. I can't take credit for signing any of them but I think a lot of it was like I said I think a lot of it was seeing sales figures. I think a lot of it was understanding that that but it couldn't be that alone right so then we get in. We get an indication that there is a buzz around a certain artists and I would literally call a record store and say so you have of this artist name. So and so how is he selling. How was she selling? It was always a Hito. How is he selling? And then whoever was running the local record store we give me a sense cents of what what was going on there and if it sounded promising I would then say. Can you please put me in touch with his manager and then it would kind of go from there but U G okay How did you decay come to us? I don't remember but everybody had. It couldn't simply couldn't simply be data which is different from now because a lot of artists I think now can get signed purely purely off of data it was data driven but then it was also talent and you know there was something so unique Godhra Soul Kimsey about about pimp and about Bun and about what they were presenting now. We have the ghetto boys from Texas as well right but Yuji K.. I don't know I just just remember the first time I heard them. They felt really new and fresh. But dirty. And grimy away that I really appreciate So it was probably a combination of the two. Well this is what I always ask. NR's when they come on the show. Can you name three acts that got away that you really that you. You had a chance to sign that you had like sort of Basel one before they got became a thing and they went elsewhere Well everybody's GonNa tell you because we all had the demo but there's no way I was going to be able to sign them Dasa fix were at my house forties forties a week and sign them. Yeah House of pain. I was friends with monks from back in the Cypress Hill days saying grave diggers. I wanted wanted to sign. It wasn't able to sign but the funny thing about the House of pain story. Is that again. I was friends with mugs and I had the demo and now the thing that was really frustrating to took clive calder. The owner of jive records was that DOS effects and house of pain went pop now before summertime. None of JIVES HIP hop artists. Went pop right. I think that Oh my God what. What's that little boy group? They asong another recreation is five little boys always. Oh I am bugging that. I'm not remembering anyway. They had a song about kiss. And that was the I feel. That was the first number one billboard song for Oh Hi fi. Five the the kissing game. So it really got under clive skin that I wanted to sign dos effects and I wanted sign house of pain and they were they were big pop hits and so after House Pan after jump around came out. He said you know he's he's South Africans. If you come down to my office do you do still have the house so paint demo and I said Yeah and so in his mind when I played the demo the you know the noise alone yeah I always say that mugs was kind of the The the the the the next generation of The bomb squad hearing bring in the noise that that he was convinced that when I played the demo original demo that that sound wasn't in the demo but but it was and in fact it is it is it is all right we will have. We will have arguments all right so the big debate is right. Here's the deal. So it's not prince's voice is rosy wings. We've been having that that I didn't know that I didn't know what. Okay so mugs them. Keep saying that it's junior walk in the All star but I win distorted and so what they will never saying that it is. They're saying that it's junior walker and the allstars I forget the name of the song okay. I'm still maintaining that. It's Prince's get off intro so essentially actually when I went back to so I played it for Clive and he was like Oh damn it and when I went back to mugs I said how close is this to the version the demo version to the one that got on the radio radio and he said it's the version that gone on the radio. There's virtually no distance between so you're saying if they lost the YELP scream horn line that you guys would have signed it. What he's what clive was saying was when he when house of pain went jump around became a big pop hit he? He was so frustrated that he hadn't let me sign it and he said Sophia. When you play me the demo that sound was not in what I'm saying like do you still have? I made a difference. That is funny so at this point had you started the relationship will yet no okay. That's why you said U. S. summer. Ninety three okay. Okay so okay well. That is weird of all. The label like Jive was just not labeled that signed any member of the wound like not even inspected deck. So my guess is they were too expensive really. Yeah see like we're Tommy boy. Yeah they already must they. They had a chance. So I'm sorry I'm just catching the budget. Wise jive really didn't have a day where we were we were a scrappy little independent and we were. We had to be really competitive in other ways. That is so weird because at least the look of it and the ads that you guys purchased and artists that you represent it I I was always I never looked at you guys as a Tommy boy underlying or even a rough house. Boutique Label considered you guys absolutely super major. No Oh I think I think we were major major players but that had to do with the fact that everything else other than big advances compensated for that right so I'm i. I was competing for hieroglyphics. That was a competitive deal. Will I can't offer as much as a major label cam but what can I offer. We'll look at our roster right and what people need need to know is that talent can be an amazing talent magnet so when we can talk about the facts so those boys from from the Bay there from East Oakland and we have spice x one and we have to shorten. We have poo right so they so there is also thinking about who you're label mates are going to be and that's how we were. That's how we were able to be competitive but it wasn't by. I spending a ton of money. I see way I I gotta ask since you're associated with. What what effect do you think that that battled severe head on their momentum souls of mischief did a infamous battle against the fear in and On Bay area radio. And all I know is that that's all we listen to it to me was the equivalent of of kill bill when my daughter was just saw with Lucy. Liu Yes vote which in both battles. But actually I was thinking of when when you Thurman just took out the crazy eights. Yeah just taken now. That's what I okay taking out but I will say that severe just one like it's for them and they had casual so it was like really we eight of them versus one of him and he just took them all one by one and we just never. I know that that had an effect on Tariq was like I have to be that good where I can take tendencies that sort of thing but I mean did that. Do you think that affected their momentum a mentor or yeah confidence at all or is it just like whatever if it did. I didn't see any sign of that. And also also you know being around those guys you know Kung Fu we say sharpen your blade every day And at the time when I was around them and they're sixteen seventeen eighteen eighteen nineteen years old. They sharpen their blades all day. Every day I mean to be around them was to hear them freestyle more than you would hear them talk. So Oh yes is. Is there this epic battle and you know severe is dominant absolutely. But I don't think that made them Kinda shrink and go. Oh my God. We're we're not good anymore it to this day. I don't think that they That they have any doubt as to as to their skills real okay. Well there's still going going strong. Yeah and I kind of wish didn't cut his hair for solid again. Say it again when Mandy lost their angle. I am me because I was like. Where's the which one is?

I no I'd I'd seen it on like a local like we had our own local Aj Shine from W. Katie. You and Philly had his own like show the avenue on Drexel University and he would show it and it was just like This is so cheap. I'm I got it though. But I kind of feel like people have reconceptualise and and sort of sort of the way that people talk about princess dirty mind at the beginning like this sort of thing I was like. Why are you really so for you with with the early Wu? Tang light light. You were truly aboard and you knew that this was going to be a thing. Yeah and I also think that there's a little bit of civic pride going on there because simultaneously. If I remember correctly the the West Coast was on the come up right now and so there was a sense of like New York New York. We've got the right. Yeah like we you know here. That's right and then you have nine and they're I'm from Staten Island and you're like how could does anybody care about Staten Island and the and they did this thing and I think that it wasn't look week. You could talk about raises beats all day long and I remember what it felt like to me. Was I think it impacted me on so many different levels so at at that point I'm considering myself a proud New Yorker even even though I've been there for less here for less than a decade but it was so New York right like I feel like resist beats and he describes him as grimy. Were this really unflinching. Look at the dirty underbelly of of the city and then and then you have their rhymes and he somehow harnesses nine guys and what we used to call a posse track right so now if we we made that record you would fly somebody the beaten they'd send you their eight of their sixteen Right but but back in the day they were all in the studio. They're all sleeping on reserves floor in Staten Island right. And so you have this kind of you. Have this osmosis happening thing and it just felt huge. That's how it felt. It felt in terms of volume of how many emcees there were but also the fact that I never heard beats like raises before I was like. Oh Shit what is he doing. I am far from the musicologist. You are and I could never deconstruct it. The way that you can't but the anr in you wasn't thinking like I would think that eight ours are thinking fighter flight. I gotta find the next big thing to keep justify to find my job in my position so my first thought would be this way too low fi like this is not gonna be on radio right. Oh like that that your your inner. Anr wasn't already tainted and taken over your conscious. Well what the what tainted. It was the deal that he asked for so none. None of us could sign Wu Tang clan right right so it was already off the table but it in the same way that the message hit me viscerally hit me viscerally early and remember. I met them really soon thereafter so it is one thing to hear the record. It is another thing that really grainy Glo. Five time code five thousand dollars where they're not even. I don't even even all in that video and then to meet them and I think because I had the privilege of being in proximity to them really really early on before the first album came out I it was. It was really really really clear to us. Certainly New York all of us knew like Oh this is going to blow it. It's GonNa blow not necessarily because we thought protected neck was a commercial song. uh-huh none of us thought this is like summertime right But it just felt like this swell You know I say my memoir There's this really great Victor Hugo quote. He's service diesel. Mimi on raises parliament as you on DVD. which has I've been kind of loosely translated as Something like you. You can't fight an idea. Whose time has come and so but literally translated as you can resistant assistant invasion of armies? You cannot resist invasion of ideas but in my mind they were both they were. This army came at the same. Oh had these incredible ideas and that was all resist vision. Look he couldn't have done it without Wu Tang but it was you know he was the abbot and that was his creative genius. So was he the First Amendment that how did you start working with the organization and what we're so heard. The Demo loved it. I became a evangelist. I played it for anybody that will listen. Listen listen listen to my shitty little yellow Walk Sports Walkman I and couldn't sign them But I was a huge fan and then the grave diggers demo came across my desk and the grave diggers. He wasn't asking for the same non-exclusive so that was something that I could definitely try to sign and I- range to meet him And I remember like it was yesterday. I remember the weather what I wore what I ate eight where we ate like. I remember so much about it. And in that first interaction of course we talked about the grave diggers and the parameters of the deal in the creative vision but we also also talked about Wu. Tang but you know this as well as I do when you get a new conversation with Rizza It's never just about music. And and you know I I. I've been saying for a while but to me. Re is the Bruce Lee of music. And when I say that I mean that Bruce Lee was took a lot of different traditions. Bruce Lee grew up studying wing. Chun right and that is very traditional Kung Fu form but he studied many other forms and then he made his own form called a Jacuzzi. And I kind of feel like that's what Rizza did as have many producers kind of take all of these not disrespect any of them honor them all of these different musical and sonic traditions and then to blend them and to make his own thing. Now again many producers have done that why I call him Bruce Lee of hip hop is because he is additionally a philosopher. And I do not. I cannot think of other artists noticed or producers that I think are true philosophers and this stems from an intense intellectual cultural and spiritual curiosity so raises the guy that has like many artists traveled the world a number of times over but he is also the guy that doesn't go to to whatever city in whatever country whatever corner of the world and say you know. Just just find me the nearest McDonalds so I can eat food and I'm comfortable with. He will eat that food right he will find out where is the place of prayer whereas the faith here. What is the language what is the culture and he will immerse himself in that and I think it really comes out in everything that he does now that that's expanded far beyond music so he was the first one that I met and I I describe it as being you know? The first time I met Rizza was like going through many different chambers. Then after I met him I met all the rest of them in the last one that I met was dirty God Russell. How was it navigating living his life? There's two people on Earth that I've met both of their tour managers with the Roots Organization. my boy Silbert When we were interviewing him and my first question was so what qualifications occasions do you have? that you feel would be beneficial to us. And he said one thing he said. He's I've been public enemy's tour manager. The last twenty years flavor. FLAV has never been late or missed a show. I was like higher. Y You're hired. So what is the amount of of JEREM. Mind tricks that you have to do to keep them organized so I could never say that they were never laid working with me at all or that. They didn't Mrs. This is show but to talk about dirty I I call him a song. I call him a You know managing older dirty bastard can can certainly seem oxymoronic but I think that I did as good a job as anybody could Look a son had an addictive personality. There's no doubt about it. He was addicted to sex. He was addicted to alcohol and he became addicted to drugs but when I managed him he he didn't even smoke wheat. Like I remember him being like get out of your hate the smell of that so I knew him before he did drugs but he did drink a lot and he did love women and and so there was a lot of There was a lot of damage control. as you can imagine but the thing that I want people to know about ace on his that he was so smart he was so smart and he had such a creative vision but he was also intellectually very smart and he was really really good with people he was so winsome and he could charm anybody when he wanted to he. He was super protective of me And he was dead loyal and I keep quoting my friend Julius owner. WHO's a Nigerian American director? Who who made this movie earlier? This summer called loose. And it's about a transracial add up T- And he said in a Qa that. I think that every person in this world should be granted access to the full spectrum of humanity and. I think that any of us who live on the margins are not granted access to the full spectrum of humanity I think rappers in in particular are not granted access to the full spectrum of humanity and so what I try to communicate in my memoir is who were these artists to me so I am far from a Tang expert. I could not tell you what Al what sequence the albums came out in what the names of all the the sole none of that the samples any of that. The only thing that I am an expert on and I am an expert on this is who they are as men people to me and and I think that I have a unique lens into the wound verse because of who I am but also who they allowed me to be and how they let me come into their world and I think that speaks volumes about them. I also managed so I manage all three letter members of booting. ODBC and I managed Rizza What I call his extracurricular activities so I did not manage him as an MC? And I did not manage him as a producer user but I manage him as a composer and then he's beginnings the Trent his transition into Hollywood Yes so his first go stars composing it goes to me That was nemo who is very close. I believe he's Jim Jarmusch his nephew a NEMA brought Research into To to Jim and then I kind of picked it up from there so it was killed bill and it was blade and I believe it's so plain So we did that stuff together and he had already started writing and directing. But you know the thing that I say about. Resume is He is truly living his childhood dream so when I was a kid I wanted to be a doctor. I wanted to be a fashion designer. I never thought that I'd be doing this. And I love my life but risen as a child growing up one of I believe eleven children of a single mother growing up in the projects of Staten Island Brooklyn He Watch Watch Kung Fu movies and he imagined and draft. He would one day direct and now he's directing from where we Bernie's writing them and he is starring in them and I. I actually don't know anybody else. WHO had this vision? And he is truly visionary from when he was a child so managing Brazil was a delight. Managing Jizzle also incredible. I would say that was my favorite client because And you know just like I do. He's incredibly low key and he's so gracious juice and he is so magnanimous and he doesn't WanNa be recognized and he doesn't want to be famous. He doesn't want to be any of those things and he he is so Kind and I really love managing him because he allowed me to transition him into lecturing and not every client. Lets you do with that right so somebody might say. I've thought about it so but I don't really want to do it because there's this thing I do when I'm so comfortable and I've been doing it for decades and I'm getting paid and I know how to do this whereas lecturing texturing is very very different you you're basically standing naked there are no pyrotechnics. You don't have a hype man there's no DJ. There's no lights there's no sound and your and your audience. They're not drunk. They're not high right. They're just sitting there and they're looking at you and you're standing at a podium and you are speaking and literally the first place he lectured was Harvard. That's the Korean in me. Me and literally the first words out of his mouth was were. I'm so nervous. And that's Jessica were. Yeah he said that. Yeah Yeah and you know what the saints and and you know what. I did the same thing with Joey Badass and Saint. He said the exact same thing. What was it? I'm just curious what was what was just I lecture. So he spoke about his love of science. You Know He. He like raises deeply intellectually curious. You spoke about his love of science. He spoke about his is His inspiration and his creative process can. Can you talk about real quick in in the prologue you had a moment headed memoir. I was jealous of have you in describing the relationship with Tang because of a situation that happened with method man and the guy. Jamal and I was jealous because as a woman who's been in the industry for years we we all know what is light. You know you're telling beautiful stories but at some points being that woman in the room can be adversarial dismisses and no question that moment of no protection right. Yeah yeah so I don't know if you want to reiterate that story but sure also in a way I also wanted you to tell the the opposite visit of that story when it wasn't that protection of method man right. I mean so when I when I started doing an R. I was insecure around it right. I'm thinking I'm a Korean in Canadian. French lip major and do I really deserve this job of being a gatekeeper. In an arbiter of a culture again that is not mine right and so but but the way that hip hop embrace me was really fortifying in me. Gave me a lot more confidence but no nothing more than when tank claiming so it was very very early on. I might have met that meth once before I go to the studio to see them and he says so. If you got to see I just got my video in For method man and so he takes me to the back lounge. WISC risk pass. Everybody takes me to the back land and he sits me down and he plugs in the tape and he stands on the wall doesn't sit with me stands against the wall to watch me because he wants to see my response to the video and sitting next to the television facing me so this gentleman is not watching the screen. He's looking at me as methods. Is this Guy Jamal so the video plays and I'm super excited. I'm like Oh my God because I'm already in love with math and so the video plays and as soon as the video ends he looks at me and he says where you from now anybody any person of color will tell you. That's a loaded question. If you ask a white person that they're going to be like from Columbus right or or my you know. My parents are whatever but this is this is a loaded question. So I am a petite Asian woman in the inner inner sanctum of Wooten of Wootton world. And it is clear to him and I could see the calculations it is clear to him. I'm not sleeping with any of those boys. He also knows that I don't manage any of them. I'm at this point. I don't a and are any of them so who is this. And how did she get in and again to this day. When I'm around Wu Tang I am almost always the only woman in the room And this is a very privileged place where I sit so he keeps an feign innocence. And I say well what are you asking me where are you from. I don't really know what that means. Where are you from and then I broke and I said okay? Well if you're asking where I was born born I was born in Vancouver. My parents are create. If you were my parents were from there from Korea. If you're asking where I live but before I could even finish answering this in this very methodical way. Meth math just flew in between us. I don't know if you've ever met him in person. He is six four and he is Toria. Slowly the nicest with his hands of the clan and Yeah no no no Oh boy no he can they all throw the fuck down but method ghost forget about it so he flies in between us and she just expands. Sounds like the hulk and he was like that Sophie Chang. She's down with woo shoes. Some Shaolin Motherfucker. Don't you ever who the fucker you'd ask her where she's she's from. Don't you ever disrespect her again and I was like. Oh my God now. Nobody had ever defended me like ETA. My it was it was just this extraordinary moment but so the demonstration was amazing but to deconstruct. And what I I think I want people to understand is he knew exactly what the fuck that guy was saying. You know what I'm saying. He totally understood that it was there was there was a racial subtext to do it and there was a gender subtext to it right. He didn't give a shit where I was from because essentially he wasn't asking a question he was saying. What are you writing the the Fokker? Because you don't belong I belong here. You don't belong here and you know again. Wanting to tell people about the humanity of Tang now methods known this guy for. I'm sure along ask time. This might be the second or third time. He's met me and his feeling was like now be. We're not fucking doing that because she's ours and what I say about Tang that look I had several friendships and hip hop. Ah and an enduring ones that have to this day. Before Wu Tang I was embraced and I was welcomed. The Wu Tang claimed me especial. So it's a thing that you're talking about Amir right like So what I'm saying is that everybody knew that they were going. To be huge. And there were hordes and hordes and hordes of people surrounding them. And for whatever reason they just want like this. You're coming with us. We're keeping her right here. And I feel that way to this day I will never ever leave that breast pocket. And can I give you a remake official right now. Had Me Bill. Sugar Steve and other bill Frontino Eh or claiming you. That's beautiful protects you. Can I just make a point. F Y cause some people might be thinking. Oh she's she's the Asian woman in in the click so she's the one that brought the awareness to all the call. Can you clear that. Oh yeah no first of all when I say that I'm a I was in love with. Math is the platonic love of my life Because Yeah Barry forever and his wife to Mika is just this gorgeous luminous creature that I adore. No He's one of my love. No no no no no no in fact no. They grew up watching Kung Fu movies. It was their escape. But they also the themes of brotherhood and loyalty and defiance and oppression really resonated needed with them and so again going back to it. I'm a I'm a yellow girl growing up in a white world. I want to be white. I come to New York I get you know I get into the hip hop world and I understand understand that there's another way to be in. That is proud of who you are. And then we'll Tang embraces me and it is the first time that I truly see the beauty beauty and profundity and the power of my culture because I see it through their eyes. That's amazing because they introduced me to John and Chai Fat. Wow this is the love your in life this my life and Kung Fu movies so before that none of the folklore. You weren't Saturday afternoons soon. Total Cultural Denial for me why it was culture. Denial and it was cultural rebellion. And so I start watching Kung Fu movies with my girlfriend Maria Ma. Oh who's taiwanese-american we're like food so we go around and we're looking. We're looking at all these different schools. And then we hear this shell in Monk Teaching Kung Fu. And that's that's like hearing that. Hit a quest. Love is teaching giving drum lessons cooking here. That Tiger Woods is going to teach golf down the street ruler so we hunt him down and we find him and and we go in there. We talked to him. He speaks Mandarin. She speaks Mandarin. He speaks no English. I don't speak Mandarin and I go home that night and I call my parents and I said I'm GONNA marry today. I knew empirically empirically and absolutely and then I left the music business. I stopped managing dirty hard right. He's a Shaolin Monk and it. They said they were like hang on a second. My Dad's hang on a second. He looks up. He's like Shaolin Monks. Mary I don't know what the Fuck Shit Chang God Recipe Sabas right there with his crazy daughter daughter and so I leave the music business I have. I don't even think about it. I run His name is Shri on Ming. I Runyon makes templates at thirty. Thirty Fourth Generation Shaolin Monk. A He has a vision that he wants to replicate the Shaolin Temple in America. I introduce him to Wu Tang so this I did. I introduce an actual Shallan Alan Multiple Times. I also was the person who orchestrated and plan and produce the tour that brought it to Shaolin Temple and he was the first artist in fifteen hundred years to ever perform in front of Shaolin Temple also took him to Tang mountain where the Abbot of Wu Tang clan met the abbot of Wu. Tang now and so. I created those historical moments but had it not been for Wootton clan. I wouldn't have the two extraordinary children that I do almost a twenty five year practice of shelling food that I did before I came here. And that's why it was so hungry so I am. I am eternally grateful to Wootton because they brought me back to myself in the most essential and important and critical way and so in going back back to myself again in going through these chambers with them they you know they brought me around to my own heritage. And what's extraordinary. Is that Meth said this to me. He said you know in a funny way. We kind of introduced you back to Asian culture and I was like how he saw astute. I have I- methods like my son. He's a he's a pisces so he is super in tune with energy and he's deeply empathetic and he knew that in the same way that he knew. Jamal said where are you from. He understood understood that this is a hostile state. This is this is not a question. It's a hostile statement. Wow Man that's that's you the stop playing. Of course. Yes Ma'am we want you on this.
