BoN 2019/19 British GP Review
"This is true with micro lemon up rob. James and Django unchained McGinley lie from The Hague V._W.. Don Sue us. It's different. It's stiff it stands for Australian Broadcasting Kostic operation. It's different is nothing you can do. There is never been a better time to be British. fulbe the one fed or two bay in Dade Anything Britannia related because you good at cricket and he could afford the one now as well and specifically Lewis Hamilton as well six times. He's won the British Grand Prairie Michael saying the British girl in a couple of times <hes> in your travels. What was this one was was particularly special the atmosphere has everyone forgotten about brexit? I yeah it's differently in sometimes it's very similar philosophy because there was so much of it coming home last year and in this year finally came the bull as much smaller-than-expected. I guess two months ago it wasn't really good atmosphere later and it was the biggest crowd ever as well because they tactically as we talked about lost way delayed announcing the contract extension into Wednesday in fact it'd be me I'm staying at these two guys drive down from Scotland only to discover on their way hi it'd been renewed and they came down specifically because they thought it was gonna be the last one they never got a chance to go so the trick work tickets and it was a good week for everyone what Oregon that's a strategy ploy by a lot of the sick. It's the trying to sort of. Get the goodwill of people saying whole you Never Dr. This might be grace somewhere in Andorra in twenty twenty four you'll ever safe home with the one at Monza you might as well bookie tickets there. Oh we've got a decision until twenty thirty two so let's let's touch on that quickly the I mean it's always the will they'll weren't I pull the trigger in terms of cancelling the British Grand Prix at some point with a the costs were too high. We and we know the struggles <hes> even a country with a rich tapestry. He's such as bruce in his head with motorized informing the one. I've really struggled to Cape that girl and prey above water and solvent. What's what's the difference this time around? Are they getting shape right at climbing in a discount. A payment plan will definitely is cheap writer. It's like a by now highlighted dealer and I've spoken to Jerry. How about this one but it's worked out some way or another? The big concern for them was these London Grand Prix tool which skeptical about in general because I think Christian owner actually wants wants to acquire rationally. If you have a London girl in free it really has to be outside Buckingham Palace for various monuments iconic figure any wall of London Bridge. That's rich but it'll never happen. It's like when they talk about having a Grand Prix and Sydney over the Hawk agreed Great United States going to happen. It's impossible sired rather London Grand Prix but nonetheless that was part of the negotiations and they have one released freeze and suicide in general is going to be the chief right because when they rocked up informing one knows all about history of the sport that kind of stuff so if they win turned around and gave <hes> silverstone they marching orders the first circuit of the host of woman on freight would have been to be weirdness. Yeah would it be it'd be TRAVEC to be honest I think and especially given the rising that we enjoyed yesterday. It's a circuit we could. ILL AFFORD TO LOSE in the not distant teacher. It was a busy week gained. Was the British going. There was something that happened. Every day. It was it was a bizarre con of wakened and it started <hes> ridiculously in the press conference way. Daniel ricotta asked the hot eight and question whether Land Einars has cubes we can get so. I mean no physician to if I want to speculate about the young man himself I think he can think he's UH himself. It was one of the highlights though I guess and then you didn't stop may with private pods chat because there's a good video during the rounds of him hitting signs in the ball did a press conference later on the weekend so you got a good weekend and he did I tell you what lender is very lucky. The News of the world is defunct because they would have set up some kind of spy thing and I would discover that we can't talk about that affects the charming and that was bizarre that one but very very humorous to say some laughing at another usually dry press conference suspicion when data rake it asks whether European Aeroflot's mole bizarrely all my I I every morning say of course urine urine European time in Australian time I wake up. I've a routine that are set myself every morning Michael. You sort of you got check. Your social media fades because it's the twenty th century and interaction with human rights is a bit mounted and of course kidding me of that is the rich energy twitter accounts. Everybody got what deprives thoughts has the person behind that twitter can't because I don't want to be sued or will publicly lambasted by William Story. What sort of crush this morning we'll greeted with a very crude Microsoft pints rendering of milk flight with the Haas One livery on it if we go back a few days before that he said Oh no way withdrawing sponsorship of fun because they were crapping Australia what was going on what is happening? How good is it to have a truly unhinged company back in Formula One? It's been too long so you away too long. Since we had a situation like this since we've had multiple court cases over the save matter it's <hes> price to link actually during the week needs to be updated a little bit because as you say every warning pretty much something in his rich energy debacle continues to unravel unravel and escalate <hes> William story the I didn't even have described I think once they discussed homeless CEO Regina those seems to have completely come indeed the company not only the social media cavs ed twitter account but he reckons he's taking control of the company routed under new business the shareholders of trying to get rid of him because he's such a rogue uterus. Let's be honest completely out of control by Vegas. Someone should have taken installed Microsoft petroni's confused by the behalf and but the problem is that are still believes it has a valid conduct at once the sponsorship money and also because let's be honest. The tweet went out on woes at Wednesday night. They didn't have time to relieve anything so they I guess perch is going to the repaint the cars but they have that India's of winning the money with him story is broken up with the team several times and it keeps tweeting about home. It'll on in fact. He tweeted a picture of which energy can we thought logo that he's allowed to use in the Formula One paddock during the weekend <hes> it's Ju it is honestly on the actually on Friday. One of the more interesting developments was that why bikes which is the the company that he's suing them over that Logan said that they fell past the two week deadline ordered by the Courts for William Store story enrich entity to pay US thirty five thousand pounds. That's not twenty one billion dollars or something like that and so they're going to try and wind up the company and also declared William Story bankrupt so that's another court taste level and I think it's just tipped over the edge. I think is something that seems like he's maybe insane and this is going to catch on rebel over the next couple of weeks. I like to say what happened. Tell you what if knife and from be mogul podcast is listening. I think we do initial at the William Story because it's okay because <hes> Australia's far away from wherever he's he's of no fixed address is William Story so do hob abroad. It can't afford to fly here then he probably has some kind of get stopped at the border. The idea is to get him onboard. I'd be happy to take Richland's issue of box of newsrooms. Absolutely oh yeah anyways good money for us. I don't care where it comes. Maybe let's make that our summer project molecule. Let's do the documentary on on on William seward because it's absolutely fascinating S._p._F.. Weiss Land Yeah we ten pots on Netflix. I would actually rather watch that then drop to survive to who will ever gangs are all we have. It's GonNa End <hes> but then the fossil wakened Fahass just wait on and on and on Romain Grosjean losing his front wing in the pipeline during practice <hes> <hes> than Christ into each other in the rice goodness Gunther Steiner is yet again raid remained gray joining Kevin Magnusson the riot act. When will they learn this? This was honestly considering the US rich energy story which is good for everyone on except for us. I guess this was terribly in such bad. You couldn't even ride how bad a weekend this drive to survive must be thinking disappeared. They were in hustle up this weekend curiously curiously out of interest of course I would story but the cop continues to completely completely confirmed that team occasionally. It's quick over one lap at this weekend not even the really interesting thing was that remember John has convinced the tape I think with the words used were initially skeptical about it but they so desperate for ideas. I listen to <hes> to take his car back to the Australian. Alien Aerodynamic Specifications Magnuson was running the latest aerospace and joining the suspect they ran in Australia which lacked a lot of Dan's. What's the latest updates inequality his foster the magnuson so there's clearly something but still fast enough I should say because any equal to and he was slower than he wasn't? Thank you want so the car is clearly problematic in any specific how you should they just seem to lack an understanding not only of the ties because everyone sort of have a grasp on the ties adding its fate aside but a little bit difficult they have one of the key components if one after but they seem just not really understand they either and they did so to suggest after birth drivers retired off a couple of laps ignace reiss that it was a shame because they were trying something and I thought maybe it was gonna work that let's reminders was pretty slow after he took the KITSAP after picking up a puncture but he kept Magnusson Owen Kevin Benson hit him so it's it's a place for that team. Goumba Stein continues to smile but I'm sure inside. It's very terrible outcome. We both drivers retire. They get no points so no running any anyway to be honest and they go now to Jimmy still unsure about what's going on. Do we this I in terms of the former the one ladder <hes> is this I F L style in terms of wooden spoon. We know Williams are going to get there but in terms of morally at the bottom of Ladda Williams there is a glimmer of hope with them the same soy's Bay this glimmer of hope hype that they will just <hes> they'll be light at the end of the tunnel. They've been through a couple of tunnels in their time and they might just get rid of it. <hes> with the FRY thing if anything's happened there but of course that's a that's that's an area will cain oil on going forward but we've passed and the Costlo that go to not bag for a sponsor a US probably the most underperforming team at this point of the season innocent you say yes. I was actually talking to all of the sharp object about this early this morning. Is that of course Williams has one hundred percent the slowest car we know because we miss performing at its maximum. It's still very slow whereas you wouldn't hoste manages to get itself together. Become a quick like we saw what was a fifth place <hes> given confiding Australia full penalty. Sorry this potentially in the Cobb if you asked the question is you did very specifically underperforming take then you would have to say yes because Haas has potential but is so clearly not reaching that it I think it's one hundred percent correct the most underperforming team at the moment because it knowing where they should be. I kind of the resource question doesn't really factor into the unique business what I buy for everything and spend the money but the cost should be quick. It isn't drivers should be pitted behave. Do they not sponsorship before coming so this is yeah. This is really the most one hundred percent all right so if we're GONNA can't this has the <hes> the unofficial unofficial box of neutrals into financial sil- awards <hes> underperforming remarkably <hes> this point is the half one team <hes> slowest coastguards to Williams but in terms of the award for the my schizophrenic Formula One has to be the Renault F one team by long in the cause and called at different racetracks. It's they've they turn a corner one weekend in any of its on the G._P._S. unit is completely shut itself. RICOTTA had a had a chassis change in practice which was she probably did on purpose so he could get a new tab and it seems to work one is the Hokum Berg and recode. I fondly going into Q.. Three together Ricard I starting the best of the renter is in in the rice starting from <hes> position seven and <hes> double points. Go finish for them as well so that's finally some re yeah some good needs to that thing yeah and there's another team that has benefited from essentially devolving its car because Ricardo admitted after they had such a terrible Australian Grand Prix after bring a big upgrade package to the previous fringe creek took off some pots not all of them they recognized probably just cooked it to be honest and suddenly the cough felt a lot better and it was perhaps lacking limited downfalls but was much usable <hes> and they were more or less on par always McLaren they've got sort of alternating strengths and weaknesses and then on balance on a ticket like silverstone <hes> they would more or less evenly matched back ricotta spending entire days so the first of the rice battling with landowners in the second half collar science and so it has sort of worked out for them like got the question is as you say is whether this can be sustained because development rice continues between these James goes next season is pretty much the same regulation so work on this academic beneficial's next year can they they keep this up can they actually steadily developed rather than taking a step forwards and backwards and they're not gonNa Chassis is broken and the engines filed. At least you're not talking about. Indian five has a little while so it is a positive step considering how bad Australia ones but it still doesn't detract from the point that they really should be more forward at this point in the season expectations. I love also as well how much of <hes> sort of goldfish memory Formula One fans. I have a classic F One fans this time about what a month the guy we will bemoaning how boring the rising wall is the nature of the base. I'm condos crisis mazing at the F._B._I.. To fix form of the Wadden to let drivers pass and yeah <music> I if China ties right the cause noisy whatever waving traded with to really really good groans prey so far this season the twenty laps of that growing pray man it was it was so cool I mean I don't know what it is. There was something about Australia. Sure there was an air of anticipation. You can feel it on the grade <hes> that that was going to be a special grown. Pray well at least into that one and in the start of the British wine was absolutely electric. I mean the we saw the rice dodd recalls with Hamilton Batas I saw by so I don on the opening few laps and then of course Batas on pole position by nine bays of a second I've Ohio town here I and for Boris to relinquish the delayed and into get get it back in a couple of corners. It's bizarre that you always count bought S.'s championship slipping at well. He's championship campaign starting to slip away just in terms of that momentum but he's still pretty second in that Rice Ace yeah and he says this I was ashamed he finished second year not to take anything away from those handled and obviously very nice equally good tha Veltri S I would say but this was a very complete weekend football ass address some of the weaknesses that have I've had him full off the championship pacing last couple of months a little bit and he starts examining the most pole positions this year any drive by one but still <hes> he starts. I've let him down previously but he pretty much ice at this time around then when wheel to with Hamilton A and forty miles <hes> not only did he get Hamilton. Get Review Dacia smooth I into Luffield and yes I've tried to coordinate height. They're seventy five hundred hundred suicide still understand it <hes> and embarrassed coming back within the space of two corners and really eighty fos odd which acapa the truck drivers regularly project without because it really showed that he was really on this weekend and he deserved to win the strikes and I think probably would have had this safety connaught intervened about twenty laps. It's argument is it is of course an argument with an audit would have been able to hold Hamilton bought. He showed that he probably could have considering doing up to that point and this would have been a big effect on the championship to get back to the question because yes now up to sitting. Nine points with thirty one points before they could have come down to twenty four hours or less than a rice with suddenly. That's really dame on but I guess when the momentum is with you like it is with Hamilton has been much the same thing sort of just work out like that. It's interesting actually because is obviously the safety cop benefited Hamilton's Pedia <hes> but Mercedes was came to do to stop as they'd started with brought acitivity Milia but Louis how pretty much implied after the rice that he wasn't going to listen to the table essentially try to do a once-off anyway have that would've worked out would have been really interesting especially if the team had given what was the quickest strategy of the safest would have been a very interesting one it will find out they didn't result is that bought has on a little bit off the championship but if he can keep these up if he doesn't put his head down like he could last year then there's no reason to pass the turn up in Sault listen to similar things in Germany and Hungary is such a British wakened at the British Grand Prix. The service spoke going on in that country those Wimbledon there was the cricket as well Cy Yeah. It's it's that sort of one wake a year where I forget about all the probe political problems that they're having and enjoy. They're actually not bad at sport. I think equally the the other major highlights according to twit up was have good does the Braun two thousand nine Kaas and we still Jensen busted cut demonstration lives. Did you get to say the back <hes> add on track very briefly out on track. Yes <hes> and I always liked the look Brokaw. I've always liked it. I liked it. It was widened had no stumps issue which is not sustainable from overseas related but <hes> yeah it was good. Look it was good. I I'm not a massive nostalgia fan but I know I do like actually there was a lot of hype as you said on twitter Bath v I think someone sort of act I was to hear someone then subsequently as people do unto Admonish Damon said <hes> it's a hairdryer compared to the B twelve which I do agree. You're going to bring back. Bring back. It's we just enjoy nice things can we we we notice good survey Ted Invade. Oh notice good as Beethoven twelve. Oh have you ever heard the glorious end of a three ton. W Sixteen Subaru Boxer hawks are injured in Windsor with side. When I was watching in one nine five six he was when he was pricing topless and anyway <hes> the other exciting part of the weekend was of course with the the the ongoing battle the little bit of warfare that we're GONNA have in the next decade between Charlotte Claire and Max v Stafford some very eary's sort of a lot of dialogue you recall it pastas between each other pushing each other very harshly add on track bats thankfully with that much penalty between the clerk verstappen close going okay well? If that's the president was sitting after Australia. This is how I'm gonNA write some extra step and going forward yeah. That's exactly what it is. He sort of said that after let's say before the right so after officer before the British Grand Prix it was of course asked about the the non penalty in Australia Street and how he felt and he said I mean he said he thought it was a little bit inconsistent but he said if that's the standard we want to sit that I'm fine with that. I'm happy to rice and you could read that as someone trying to deflect a little B- being maybe pitch length but no actually the result is that both drivers accept except this is the standard and I actually happy with it and the happy to engage in it and as a result we got the best part of the rice was these jewels good as Mrs bought as was the best part of the rice was Likud nervous verstappen because they rice so hot. I Guess Yvonne Injured Eighteen N._C.. Conclusion literally would otherwise <hes> very fairly though they both gave as good as they got no one made any <hes> various contacts crashing as opposed to the other central Atlanta and and we got a really great Guiliani can't last week it's great because not only is Cleveland Right Action now but the twenty one years old so we probably about ten years of this tree yeah no bad could size. We're going to enjoy the next few we're pretty happy with that but <hes> <hes> I reckon again another sort of standby topic that will happen at the end of every single grown. Pray is is vital cooked plays discuss this we saw wearing collide with Max verstappen bizarrely though they didn't get stuck in the if if anything shook hands after the parade vehicle apologized and said no that was my fault. I'm sorry at maximum okay they even though remarkably for an Adrian newey car there Nancy obeying <hes> very a fast but you just go boo at them and then they'll fall apart for that guy to be able and instructed curb and then to actually get it going again and finished fifth was pretty impressive for Max Chapman and the Red Bull Honda combination but is just trying to remember that episode of the Simpsons where the federal the sort of the Grahahan puppies and they're all watching T._v.. And the guy hand touches the debate and it's like Oh heck you and the cat trust do it and he's from the maybe there is a degree of that you know everyone is saying happy. We look at the staffing things a little little bit jaded over Sebastian well. Maybe there is a little bit of that. It comes back to even when we're talking about. If you want to have the crash in Canada for example independently monitoring hundred fish and whatever but I think we said at the time and so they also opinion then universals made so many mistakes that you kind of run out of patience. With a little bit now we know he's extremely Quinn the collar extreme that he's a very talented drivers certainly among the best drives but the mistakes he makes the list seem to these sort of feel form and this was kind of a kind of an amateur mistake from I mean he wanted the heat back very quickly and with snapping back on the stand back and you know he wanted to try to end the inside not move probably would've they NYC hey but lifted y.. Tu Light realize it was no room on the inside then sort of had the hit the brakes behind the staff in the Lilac to be the downfall of society and the Vikings aren't rear ended. It really does contrast unfortunately for him because as we sort of said for the preceding we'll mice entire rights via the the Stephanie Clue we rising Qods off the track on the track in a fair way though we that ever crashing obviously or even really touching. I'm not sure if they've been banged wheels in this rights and the fact that in only one of two corners says you want taking move and stack his car and ruined the rights of another driver reflects quite Poli on at the moment and yeah I mean you just gotTa wonder what happens to him from here because these are starting to be shown by quickly as it becomes more consistent consistency is the or maybe the only weakness in Chris Haslam department but that's being massively improved upon the last couple of Aisin's and once that's sorted. I don't know what place Abeche invisible has at Ferrari other than being we I the number to drive. Oh I've got because soon liquid will probably be hit on points and he's only two or three points behind the moment I'm thinking of Costa vittles known school this game and then what happens I and so you've gotta wonder what Sebastian Middle's thinking in his position you know. He says you'll get over it quickly on stuff that he's been saying that since exactly a year ago when we was interesting actually because this time last year on the British ground premiums the last time I think nights owners box <hes> from E._S._p._N.. Was the last time he looked like a real champion. The subsequent is because he crashed from the lead in Germany. It's all downhill from there for what happens. An extra session riddle I just are you invincible. I E paying money then come back on the row pain McGinley of bank choose from variable lines kinds of between two cents and fifty six dollars. You'll money will arrive to you within two to three working months in a plastic bag in doc Elliott and hey uni students.

We're GONNA ray bad drill overreaction with oversteer or understeer understeer yeah obeying the truth of obviously being bulldust <hes>. I'll just as far a couple of questions that you and you on so whether it's under steel oversteer P._A.. Ghezali he he's position is Saif at ripple rising aw <hes> understeer which ones that is that actually I are we steer is not obvious theories. Oh Jeez hang on. I need to run software for this is not true obviously not true understeer true book visor actually very bad on to have audela have balanced okay now <hes> understeer balanced or Vista. Oh Gee there's too many components in this guy. I've ever really felt very sixty what it'd be down. Nonetheless question remains Guiseley. He's tenure any a ripple racy. He's GonNa stay of execution. A Red Bull racing understeer obviously <hes> on the state execution on this team. I think he does purely because there's not really anyone to replace your man to be fair. The hearing had improved weekend. Can this weekend when he said he came to this weekend. Speaking on Thursday seem very confident. He's going to have a good weekend for some reason. There was no reason to believe it and then he didn't so maybe he really has sold it at a news. GonNa be good now on so I think I think coming back the the next girl impre in Germany will be as news <hes> I can say it's balanced Daniel Kizzie s will be replaced by Yuri VIPs <music> at some point this as some point season. I think that's steer but who knows what happens after that. I think that too destructive twenty twenty <hes> maybe if it's never very good what did he didn't even know crash probably did too then hill. Ivanka was like they need drivers. We know that much I would spilling lender. Norris has poops <hes>. How old is he in nineteen probably oversteer? Okay okay well. You'd have to ask him yourself funny voice so.

"This is a show where you get to be. The star will make a great episode together. No matter how boring or awkward you feel. The best part is that it's all done remotely. So participating is really easy contact us at everyone cast.com and you can have your own episode on this show. I even made this cold. Jingle to remember it. I'm Anthony salvato, and this is Grace and mask. Hey, man, he gave a thumbs-up. You can't see it. And I also totally Grace and I'm definitely going to be making fun of his man bun. It's a new trend. It was a new trend like five years ago. Let's be real. It's it's still go off Ford, you know to be real though. It works for you. You have a beautiful thick head of hair which is great A nice beard and mustache and a brand new headset. That sounds really good. It was $50 at Target. So let's talk about the first thing that is most interesting to you, which is me now. I'm just kidding your blog. Yeah. It's the Platinum masks and really started the blog. I think maybe I think I officially just kind of went on Bluehost about a month ago, and I'm really I kind of just came up with the concepts, you know, really would just work. I kind of knew I was going to be working from home until basically twenty Twenty-One and I was kind of like wage Definitely need to start more just kind of just projects on my own just to kind of stay productive and busy and just be able to kind of meet new people. So how much more time do you have now that you're working at home? Like how much was your commute kind of taking time out of your life before? Yeah. So I was I'm working at Republic National Distributing Company and its National alcohol distributer mainly in like wines and spirits. But yeah, one of their locations is in Grand Prairie. So my overall commute was like really just like a minute drive from the Grapevine area. But yeah, I mean still working Ramones. I mean one of the advantages is, you know, just being able to roll out of bed and just start work from their home. Well, it's not even just the committee. You just have so much more time in general cuz you don't have to do your whole morning routine, you know, there's just so many steps transitioning to and from a physical workplace that yep. To worry about anymore. Yeah, I mean it's yeah, I mean really I think like a lot of the managers of my company are kind of seeing that and also just some of like our procedures programs we have to do less of because we're on a remote basis. So I think like they're kind of seeing this and they're trying to you know have us kind of run like a lot more kind of ad hoc programs are trying to you know, build on new procedures just like, you know, they kind of know just the amount of free time. We possibly have and might as well use it productively off. What was your inspiration to make this blog and what is this blog about exactly really the just the overall inspiration was I think before the blog I was right before kovid I was kind of doing I was in I was working with a lot of different nonprofits and kind of young professional groups in the DFW area and I really started home. In just a bunch of happy hours for these organizations and just in a way to help kind of young professionals and you do the Dallas area meet other young professionals down and really with a Blog I kind of just wanted to if I could have made people really as much in person. I still wanted to help get young professional voices out in the community down and really is also just questions that I have about this old covet situation just like really on some of the professions and some of the organizations like one of my blogs, you know on movie theaters and I spoke to a senior VP at Studio Movie Grill because that was really just the whole what happens to movie theaters in a post office. The world was just an interesting topic to me and just I had a lot of questions about it. So it's a lot about Connections to the local community. Yeah. Yeah just being able to kind of maintain a log. Connections with other young Professionals in my local area still being able to do that. Even though I can't do it in person and just hearing all their just the variety of different perspectives during this pandemic. You said used Bluehost for hosting you also use WordPress for your blogging platform or to use something else. It'd be honest. I'm I'm very intro to this. I'm kind of just with building the blog. I'm just doing it as I upload different articles. Yeah. I've kind of I've seen I believe I've used WordPress but I don't think actively with Bluehost. I'm still looking at the different plug-ins with so there's actually direct plugins. You can use on Bluehost for blogging. Yeah really with I mean, that's why multiple people have recommended Bluehost just on I think all the different plug-ins that come with I think just the one dead. Annual price whatever you're paying. I can't remember. I might have paid like $100 for the next year for I mean there's obviously different packages. But yeah overall I thought it was just a very simple payment structure. I see cuz what I do is I actually use Bluehost myself. Okay as a hosting service, they provide the server space and then I use wage press to design my website. Okay with the with Bluehost. Would you happen to know what like packaged you chose as far as cuz I saw a different packages as far as like the bandwidth. I wanted I'm like, you know, I'm just starting this blog. I don't know. You know, I'm not I'm not I'm not I don't know what to expect as far as the actual subscribers or weekly viewers, right? So I chose not the not the lowest package but like the one right above the lowest and it might even be more than what I need, but I thought hey I'll just, you know, be safe and just use the slightly more expensive one wage. To just to feel at ease. Yeah. I mean, I definitely probably just chose the lowest one and kind of just might as well, you know, just wait until I build up see how this subscribers Dome see how actual views go and just go from there. That's that's the way to do it probably because you can always upgrade later. Okay, cool. How can I access your blog? I want to check it out right now actually. Yeah, it's the Platinum ask.com. That's easy to remember. Oh, yeah. This looks quite nice. Actually. Yeah kind of with a Blog as kind of just playing with a bunch of different plug-ins as far as like religious outside of just posting and just like how I was going to what actual tabs I would really need. But yeah, just kind of a simple just all posts and then just separating each post into just different categories, like entrepreneurs creatives nonprofits based on just wage. What people are possibly interests I was going to ask. Yes. So for your so you were kind of talking about just just I mean, we originally talked on wage this app and I was going to ask like just how I guess for the past episodes. Like how do you normally reach out to people or I guess how do you kind of just build, you know interviews off that so far. I've reached out to friends and some of my friends have also had friends. And yeah, I've also used some apps to just find people to do this but on my website you have it right on the front page or anybody you can sign up. So that's why I like I said the vision is eventually people will just go to the website and be like, hey, yeah, I want to do one. Number one. I have to make sure that the show is actually good right choice and there's a lot of considerations for that. So I'm trying I'm trying to get feedback from people, you know, see if there's things I can improve and then number two is about promotion and I'm not quite ready to do wage. Full on promotion yet. There's still some things. I need to work out. I have of course friends and family that know about this and the people I interviewed know about it, and I'm hoping that one of the Avenues for promotion I can use is just that the people who are on the show, they're kind of automatically fans because they were on the show and then they'll be like, hey everybody check out this show. I was on yeah. Yeah definitely makes sense. I mean, yeah, I kind of know with just I mean I would say similar on really starting out with friends and family some of the posts I've done. I'm kind of deciding between them. Normally. I've been if I come up with a concept that I'm interested about on, you know, maybe I've done a post on coffee shops on Event Photographers just different businesses and professions. I'll write it and then possibly think of either friends or family or look at my LinkedIn Network or just any hashtags. I see popping up on something like a dog Stagram I'll probably try to send out maybe maybe like 6 or 7 emails to different people for that specific post because I kind of know I'm like the numbers game. I'm like a lot of a couple of people aren't going to answer maybe a few or going to be interested and then forget about it. So I'm kind of like yeah, maybe sending it to six or seven people guarantee. Someone will definitely be ready for either to answer the questions or do a phone call. That is one of the trickiest parts kind of getting yourself out there. There's plenty of people with great content that they don't get the recognition they deserve cuz you know, they don't promote or they don't want to promote or whatever one thing that I could help a little bit is you mentioned dog tags and there's actually apps out there that can take an image that you give them and then automatically generate a whole bunch of hashtags through image recognition. So for example, if you do a post about a month Shop, like you said, yeah, you can have either maybe like a picture of a coffee shop or a picture of coffee. Yeah, and then the app can generate a whole bunch of hashtags that are coffee-related and then you age and you know pick and choose which ones of those are appropriate and which aren't and then just copy and paste them. So that's kind of a neat tool. It's something that I'm going to be looking at in the future when I get a little bit more into the axle media aspects, huh? That's yeah, that's definitely well. I mean really with ya definitely have to check into what specifically that's called. But yeah with them, I mean really with a lot of promotion. I mean that was definitely a part kind of like finding out the right timing on when to I guess aggressively promote the poem The Blog pokes cuz I was kind of like I don't want to I don't want to really start showing at the people or like really trying to spread it when I have like one post on the blog, but then it's also home. I guess a catch-twenty-two on it's hard to find I guess more people to interview if I've had like a lot of posts and then no one's wrong coming onto the block or something. So it's kind of I've been kind of more and more trying to promote it or do more shout outs as I try to as I actually build up contacts that are you I guess similar or yeah, it's hard to it's kind of hard to strike about like, I I basically like just started on social media. I have I have an Instagram page a couple of posts of just clips from a couple of episodes. I don't really have any followers yet, you know, I'm not ready to to take that route just yet. I want to get all my promotional materials wage order. So yeah, I'm not really too experienced with that stuff just yet. But social media is is quite tricky and I know it's kind of a meme for like a social media manager is very like milenge. Sounding job, but you know, it's a it's a serious job cuz there's a lot to it. Yeah, it's definitely needed. I know with a group. I've been working with with our Global Shapers. They have it's a national or Global organization and they have kind of Dallas chapters. But yeah, they definitely dive awfully heavily into kind of some of the Facebook marketing because it's I mean pretty cheap to do. I mean, I mean like geographical local ads, you know for maybe you could do like a couple of bucks a day and get actually pretty high engagement with some of that stuff. Huh. And of course with the local ads, I'm sure the engagement is a month higher because it's more relevant to the the person's interests. Definitely. This is a completely topic switching topic. But you have a lot of strange drawings on your wall. Did you make all those? Yeah, I mean, it's I think I like a lot of people bring that up on the webcam. Yeah, if you want to see some of it but it's yeah, yeah is really made a lot of it when I was I think like early teenager like thirteen fourteen something like that off, but I don't know just have a lot of free time apparently and was able to fill up definitely a large portions these walls. But yeah, I've always had a kind of a thing for Thursday kind of kind of dark sharp yard and kind of like little intricate details and just kind of a bunch of like sketches. But yeah, yeah kind of had a white wall was like might as well fill it up. So the people you're staying with and don't care that their will is covered in sketches just takes more wiping sweat ever. Yeah. That's pretty interesting. Do you do a lot of Art? I guess I yeah, I kind of do it just for fun would not say that I'm just a naturally artistic person or like a really that I'm extremely talented with it or if it comes naturally. It's just you know, if free time then you know, I love to try just kind of new things out overall. I think I have like a couple of different canvases. But yeah, as far as long I guess natural Talent as being able to do something high quality in our really well, I don't think it's about natural Talent necessarily just about practice and some people like to practice and get better at art or music or whatever and some people just like to continue just screw it around. Yeah. Yeah. I'm probably I'm more on the the latter category. I would say the same for myself with it when it comes to creative Endeavors. Yeah, like I've done some music stuff. None of us really any good. But as how I know how to edit a podcast though. Yeah with music you kind of know the tools for like mixing am seeing a podcast is like a much easier version of that cuz you're only mixing a couple of different voices versus all these like different sounds and I did make a lot of like electronic music but even electronic wage. I mean, yeah, like it's not real instruments, but still it gets pretty complicated because first of all, you have to like figure out what the songs going to be you gotta either design the Cyclones to make the song or even if you're just using like presets like presets and there's a lot of people do even professionals. You still have to figure out how to arrange them properly off. So does the arrange like the sound choice or the sound design the arrangement and then the mixing you have to mix everything properly. You gotta add build ups and breakdowns and birth. X so it's a very creative process while at the same time being very technical because you have to know how to use all the tools to do these things. And you also have to know which tools are available to you because you may about certain tools that make your job a lot easier than somebody who does not know about those tools now with the podcast. It's pretty simple you just slap on a compressor and EQ, you know, you make some cuts off noise reduction or there's like weird sounds you can mitigate those. But yeah, that's my rant about sound. Have you ever thought I guess read or heard or the the book range? I have not. What's it about? Yeah. It's it's the the full title is range. I think why generalist try back in a specialized world, but yeah, it's kind of where you're talking about on people who do kind of a wide range of different activities kind of like you were talking about with working on Thursday. A music actually gave you the technical capabilities when it came to the podcast which you know, it might be two different things, but they could have a similar skill set needed. But yeah, I kind of dives into a lot on generalist just people who do a wide range of topics actually do have an increasing skill set that they use in different fields and the the world we live in right now that kind of really keeps on encouraging specialization, you know, just getting more specialized skill-set and like a narrower Niche or like an error-filled, you know, this book encourages more diving into just a bunch of different fields. It kind of depends what your goal is because God If you want to achieve Mastery in a career, whether you're a PhD or an engineer or a finance professional if you want to be at the top of your game, you have to have very specialized knowledge of those things, but maybe other people described by this book, maybe they jump around more and they kind of eventually combine a few years. They have shallow or knowledge of into something interesting. I mean it definitely it definitely brings on the the type of profession you have and also talks about if the type of Industry you're in life. Is it like a rapidly changing one is a rapidly like evolving one where you know one week is definitely not similar to the next one lie examples being I guess with firefighters on you know, you would have firefighters with you know, twenty-five years experience and Residential Properties. But as soon as they jumped into kind of a commercial building All that twenty-five years of experience in this rapidly changing environment. Did it really helped a lot with you know, a totally different scenario. So yeah kind of them really what you're going for but also just yeah the type of market and the type of sector urine is really important to would you consider yourself a generalist or a special list? Yeah, I guess I mean I agreed on just kind of you know, you don't have to really choose between the two but I guess more more in the general aside just because I'm really with my with my role my company they do encourage me for specialization on getting certifications and just really working hard on different types of tests. But also just the general aside on kind of job shadowing different departments and really when I started at the company at graduation after graduating from college, UNT I was entry level on the finance side and now I'm on the sales side and you know, they've kind of mentioned that people who you know kind of crossed apart like that and kind of build skill sets from different departments normally like a lot of kind of the people in our management or like higher levels kind of did something like that. Because kind of from a management role you want to be able to pull from different expertise from various departments or be able to kind of manage, you know, different departments need anything. But yeah, I would say overall kind of more generalist of anything. It's probably hard to say for sure because I mean you're still fairly early in your career and in your blog so, you know, I haven't quite found your path yet. I mean, I haven't either I'm just you know, I don't know what I'm doing. Yeah, well quick background of me. Like I was a software engineer for seven years actually and I've been jobless for two years voluntarily. Jobless. I've done some interesting stuff in the meantime, but nothing that's wrong like sustainable long-term kind of career path, but maybe I'll get there. Maybe I'll find something that I want to do or maybe I'll go back to software engineering will see and was wrong. I guess. They EDM was the EDM music did that happen in the two years or was that like before and that's been happening since my teens? Okay. Just kind of a side hobby. I never really took it really seriously wage, which is why none of my stuff is really super impressive by any means, it's fun though. It's cool to look back ten to fifteen years ago and like listen to something you made any kind of like reminds you of that time, you know, I mean, even if there's no emotional components of the music at all, you can kind of like visualize yourself in your dorm room or whatever like working on that song. It's it's like a nostalgic feeling. You know, I think I have maybe one or two songs kind of made with kind of some teenage friends and it's like I don't even want to it was like so badly made. I don't even even check it out again. It's like bands. No, no. No, it was like also with electronic music and it was kind of just walk really just with kind of just with the basic apple software's were like, hey we can you know, just relax. Yeah, pretty much I gotta say wage. I don't know how scurrilous got so good but making all those crazy noises and having them blend together. So well not easy at all. Yeah, I can say that mad props to him for being able to do that and kind of spawn a whole genre of music. You don't hear as much of it nowadays, but it's pretty big eight to ten years ago. Yeah. I mean, I really don't I guess I need to start like keeping dog. Was like who are kind of see I guess they had names and EDM right now in EDM. It's a good question. I don't know. I haven't really heard any like I'm actually DM music in like the top, you know, the top tracks maybe like pop music that's kind of like dancey pop music. But if we're talking like, you know house house music off like a V Chi or Martin Garrix, those those guys had some top hits. You're not really hearing that sort of thing anymore. Did you ever I guess in the DFW did you ever hear them check out the pyone in the Arlington area know what's that? It was I think it was primarily house music. It was the the Critter of circus. Soleil Faith had a side project called pyone and it debuted in kind of the Montreal area originally and I think our log And which was while it was their first time kind of the United States and Arlington, Texas, but it was basically just this giant pyramid structure that I think took a few hundred people can fit in and I mean it's by the creator of circus soleil so they have a DJ in the middle doing house music and then they have kind of dance performers come out and they don't do like kind of a huge laser light show and kind of different types of I guess animated shows on like the the walls of the pyramids. Oh and that's a that's a local thing. Huh? Yeah. Yeah. This was I don't know if they would be back here next year or something. But yeah. Yeah. It was I went to its November last year in the Arlington area, but I definitely liked the entertainment. I was a big fan of the just the different laser light shows and kind of the performers and everything. I think most of my friends probably would have preferred wage. I think some of them said maybe if it wasn't I wasn't a huge fan of like house music and maybe if it was something I guess different. I don't know the word for it. But yeah overall. I thought it was a kind of a cool experience. I would want it to come back next year, right. So maybe if the type of music was a little bit different you would have been more into it. Yeah, I think yeah, I was honestly fine with house music but I think from what I heard from just like a lot of people kind of talking about as maybe if they diversify just the different DJs or just kind of the different types of music cuz it's yeah, that's another thing was they kind of I think it goes on for a few weeks and each day of the week is like a different they tried to do it like a different theme I think like one was called like astral projections and one was kind of thinking like Safari or kind of like animal animal related. But yeah, like a bunch of stuff. Well, maybe with enough alcohol or other drugs. Maybe it's a little bit easier. How to get into the same type of music just playing over and over yeah definitely. Are you a big music person in general or is it besides, you know, making like tronic music with your your high school friends? Like are you are you a music fan really kind of with I guess EDM kind of like what we talked about on Palm. I'm like, I'm not passionate enough to actually memorize like a lot of just a different headlining names or no DJs, but it's just going out to events is just took over all its kind of more just the experience to me and just being able to be there in person. That's kind of more the enjoyment to me. Yeah, so kind of before pyone, I mean definitely went off at Stereo Live definitely a bunch of times and kind of Lizard Lounge and green elephant and kind of outside DFW area is probably not the the best phone. Play is to highlight DJs or EDM in general. But you know, probably different places in Texas. But yeah, yeah kind of overall just you know outside that going to get you know House of Blues events and a bunch of different stuff. Is there anything else that you like to do? Are there any hobbies that you've either picked up during the pandemic or have always had that might be of interest? Yeah, I mean definitely during covet I'm probably one of the many that started taking up kind of more running recently your let alone. Yeah, I mean, I've been running for it like how much have you been running usually every other day a few laps around my neighborhood but it's a pretty like high intensity kind of deal. So it's not like a slow jog. It's like maybe 15 minutes but like pretty high like sprinting not not like sprinting but enough to get my enough to be winded by the end of month. You know, okay, like for example, if you run a mile and like you're not sprinting the mile, but you can still go at a pace that you're like out of breath at the end you it was a vigorous paste right off. So that's what I mean is I go at a vigorous enough pace so that by the end of it it was a good workout and I have I have noticed like improvements in my cardiovascular fitness over all even though I was always into I was really into health and fitness before that even like I'd always be going to the gym and doing weight training and do some cardio, but now I've been doing them just more cardio. I'm not really any weight training. I have a pull-up bar, but that's it. And yeah, my cardio Fitness feels a lot better even though I know I'm getting a lot weaker. So what's your experience been running really before kind of the pandemic? Yeah really was definitely living a more unhealthy lifestyle between I think just not the best diet dog. And not really going to the gym as often as I should but yeah kind of during covid-19. But yeah kind of it mainly just starts off like run a minute and then you know walk a couple of minutes and so on until you finish 5K and then it's just every other day is just limiting thoughts walking time and decreasing that even more kind of increasing the intensity as you get more fit. Do you mostly run outside or do you use a treadmill mainly run outside? Yeah. It's kind of a long gray fine area. So it was definitely it was it was a little tough at first trying to find a lot of spots kind of around my neighborhood cuz it was kind of around the park it gets like especially at the beginning kind of like with kind of an April, you know is definitely getting really congested where you know, a lot of people are kind of coming up with the same idea about like on taking up running so it would definitely be crowded and kind of a lot of the kind of made running spots and then trying to find something just kind of running on, you know, just the dog Add box around the neighborhood and stuff it, you know that can be congested too. So it's yeah mainly just all outdoor running and just trying to kind of randomly choose like a different route every day or just kind of different direction when I was going to the gym. I was always sticking with the treadmill mostly cuz it was already there. But now that I'm not going to the page and my running has also been outdoors and it's it's it's more fun that way. Mainly I've been doing it just kind of depending on how busy I'm just kind of like doing in the evenings. But yeah, it's kind of cool just just to be able kind of wine unwind kind of after at the end of the day and just kind of go around the neighborhood and everything but I was going to ask on specifically with the with the gym or you not going to the gym. Are you very concerned it on being I guess very prone to getting the cases Oh, you mean like because it's a public wage. Environment you're asking if I'd be concerned about getting sick going to the gym and the answer is yes, even even if I were a mask in there, which I actually did things originally closed down for a while and then they reopened and then I I did go back to the gym and I would just wear a mask. But there's still a risk even with that wearing a mask does not make you immune to the disease, right? So I still felt there was a risk and of course people there there's people in there who don't wear masks who just like they don't care. So especially don't want to be around those people, you know, especially they're like breathing heavy during the workouts and also kind of just lifting weights with a mask on Monday it's doable but it's just kind of annoying to do I'm perfectly capable of doing it, but I don't really like to do it but mostly mostly it's about the safety, you know want to I want to stay safe home. I was really concerned at first cuz I was like man, I don't want to lose my gains but that concern kind of has one away. I guess now that I'm not go to the gym all the time and kind of like used to not going to the gym and it's not a psychological burden on me. You know, I don't care if I get if I get weaker if I lose muscle size cuz I can always build it back up right? There's always going to be time. Hopefully the pandemic so birth. Or in the next leg year and then I can just build back up which is an exciting prospect for me. Because Fitness to me is a lot of a lot of it's about the journey not so much the destination. It's a lot of fun to see progress. And of course when I'm not as in shape, it's a lot easier to make progress right when I was going to the gym all the time was very hard to make progress because I was already gave him all the time and I was in probably the best shape I've ever been and of course like it's it's possible that I could make progress. It just takes a lot more effort. Hmm. Yeah. I mean honestly kind of actually I guess should going to the gym more regularly and lifting weights really just during kovacic. Yeah kind of is it really the first time I get like I said on that anxiousness on like, oh man. I miss like a few days on like not going to the gym. I'm really need a I really need a go today. Even if I'm like really pissy or something wage. Was actually considering buying some home workout equipment. Nothing fancy. I was thinking about adjustable dumbbells. I don't know if you're familiar with those but like I don't really have the space for a whole record number that is so adjustable dumbbells. It's a way to have like a whole set of dumbbells and they're just kind of a all condensed until like one thing you gotta you gotta look at it. It's pretty interesting but wage just about dumbbells and just a simple bench that you can do whatever inclined you want. And with those there's a lot of exercise you can do a lot of effective exercises only problem is adjustable dumbbells are so expensive. I was looking at the price of the adjustable dumbbells. I wanted $300 and I was like, all right, that's expensive but not too bad. And then I realized I was only for one dumbbell and I need two of them. So if I want the dumbbells and the bench, I'd be spending upwards of maybe around $800 for those things that is quite an expense. So it's not something I'm sure I would want to do. I don't know if that's really worth it. Especially if if if in the next year, I'm back in the gym. I just spent $800 on this equipment that I won't even need anymore. Yeah. I can understand that. I mean, it's I remember my brother kind of show me like on some heavy thoughts on that. He was buying and I think it was just I think he was going to tell me like when he was get when he was getting an order online that you know as much cheaper when he went to when he kind of took that Target, but I guess maybe with online they're doing a huge markup on shipping just a massive weight or something like every like that. I don't know it could be part of it off. Yeah, we'll have to look into that seeing if there's any Sporting Goods store that maybe they have the same product for cheaper. But the other thing is home workout equipment is really popular right now. So that's also going to be driving up prices. I think yeah really at the beginning of the pandemic when I was kind of interested on trying I think it was when it was like the gyms were still closed. Yeah. I kind of went to a Target aisle and I think they literally the only thing in the workout session that was still there was like mats and those it even the Shake Weights were gone back up. People are people are just getting double each so as a as a recently certified personal trainer, I would not ever recommend that the shake weight. Okay. I think just after the South Park episode. I'm like, okay now I know too. Well, it's not going to hurt you but it's not an effective workout. Let's be real. It's more of a meme than anything else. Yeah, I think the creators of it knew it was is a meme. I don't even think they intended for it to be a serious product. Yeah, I think when they saw themselves on South Park, they were just I think they're jumping up with Joy Wok. Exactly genius marketing. Yeah. I kind of asked you about you know, how comfortable you were with kind of going out to the gym. Are you I guess like that with other businesses or off the things for the most part I am staying away from restaurants and things like that. I did go to a taco place once I wore a mask when I took my order indoors and then I sang Outdoors away from people. Okay. It was a friend's birthday and he invited like a few of us. So, you know, I tried to sit appropriately away from people Outdoors. Yeah, I'm definitely mindful of it. And I don't yeah, I don't I don't socialize much for that reason. Well, this is like our this is like social time right here the podcast. Yeah, you know, I haven't been going out too crowded places is what I'm saying really was with me. It's kind of just making sure I stick with really like a small subset of my normal friend group really just been hanging out with kind of the same like two or three people and primarily off doing kind of like outdoor activities, like hiking kayaking anything that kind of just yeah stays away from a crowded environment everything. I think that's I think that's the way to do it like hiking especially, you know, just it's it's easy to keep it an appropriate distance from people and still do an enjoyable activity. Yeah. It's definitely, you know, I think it's definitely increasing wage. I think for like a lot of people excitement, I guess about things like, you know visiting maybe like state parks and things like that. Yeah, I went to with the Labor Day weekend went up to kind of Arkansas to do some of the sites out there. But yeah, I kind of see a you know, a lot of people I guess with you know, people who are working who might have like p t o m missing, you know, they say we can't really do the city so I might as well, you know, check outdoor stuff. I'm curious to see after all this blows over some day if people are going to stick to those sorts of thoughts habits, or if they're going to go back to their old ways and just going clubbing. Yeah. I don't know what to see I can imagine some of it sticking I mean cuz I think it's like I think there'll still be some types of policies restrictions after the endemic I guess a family people would be more cautious in general. Maybe just the cultural Impact will be a little lasting one. Maybe it'll kind of influence certain Trends in New Directions. I guess one thing you really a question I have for you kind of on my blog is just thought if there's any cool, you know topics that you can think of or you know professions or business that you think would be like, oh this should definitely be talked about or this you know that you're curious about what can I change it might have postcode then well if you're looking for somebody to have on your blog I might have just the person for you or I don't know if you were asking specifically me that question. Yeah. No, it was yeah. It was definitely a just kind of like, you know, cool topics or anything, you know professions or topics that I would like to see you mean personally. I'm not interest that I would like to see on the blog is kind of a I think local startups would be cool to look at. Hm. Okay, so I know you cover a little bit of that with your your entrepreneurs section. Yeah. Really, you know haven't jumped into start-ups like that. But I know I have been kind of seeing a lot of the news with kind of like Venture Capital firms and you know how they're investing in the startups and Loans during this whole coven situation. So, yeah, I think that would definitely be an interesting topic to explore and startups are always looking for exposure. So I'm sure they're always be happy to participate on your blog. Yeah, definitely and I do know people who are working on startups. Like I said, like I said, I can hook you up with people. Yeah. Yeah. I'll I'll get you in touch and you can feature them on your blog. Yeah, that'd be awesome man. And you know vice versa. I appreciate that thanx Grayson was it was fun talking to you and getting to learn about your blog and everything else that's going on, and I hope we'll stay in touch and talk soon. Definitely, man. Peace

Pleased to be joined now by somebody who I know you are glad to hear from. I'm sure he's filled with holiday. Cheer as we get closer and closer to Christmas the One and only Dallas cowboys wide receiver. Randall Cobb Randall. Oh happy Tuesday to use. Sir How are you. I'm doing very well You know it's a it's a bit chilly. And so I'm I'm adjusting I might make some Chili. You know how sometimes you get certain foods when it's cold outside a house our theme song for you right now. How you got the holiday spirit? I mean you're getting ready Christmas Christmas tree and everything up and stuff. Yeah we got the Christmas tree up. We're GONNA decorate it today Let my son for the first quarter minimum. I guess Christmas look like going up here soon. So definitely getting into the spirit. Let's good to hear and I know you know you mentioned your son. I know you have such a huge focus on your family You know on our side our instagram account. We had a fun exchange with your wife. She showed you were wearing gloves and she was talking about how everybody was all curious about the gloves you're wearing I'm sure enough. She said it was you were doing that. We we had some fine out because your teammate Dak gloves whatnot fun. So tell me about I know you're working with Gillette. In Grand Prairie Okay Boys and Girls Club today. What do you got going with them? Yeah where the big event that was going to do today is it's all about you know characters off developed to experiences and choices that we make and it's always daily choices you don't like shaving in the morning and whatever it takes for you feel your bed so you can achieve your best. Also that's a really important lesson I think especially to teach young men an and and young people in general What does that come from for you because something you know one of the hallmarks of your career both in Green Bay in Dallas Nationally has been that you are a great leader and and you have all those strong values. or where do you attribute all that I I would say my father I would say that you know being being there for me and being around and and giving me an example TV show me. What hardworking you show me what dedication and showed me being a strong father? Figure of my life You know I think that. He played a huge role in who I am now and and You know that's that's kind of message to pass along that we we all role models that we can learn from what we can also learn from our experiences in through our daily decisions and the consequences. Good and bad. It's it's certainly one thing to pass this message on and it's really admirable thing on something that all people should do and and look to future generations but you've also been a leader of your peers. That's a difficult thing. It's hard to sort of rise. The leadership roles in in moments of adversity. Wherever the case may be you know is that something you just kind of continued as you grew up in you just sort of fell into those roles? Yeah you know I think one thing that makes a good leader is to be a good follower and sometimes you have to follow before you leave and and knowing who the frog you've gotta follow the right people you know it's not always about WHO's the best player who Is Talking to most. Sometimes this is leading by example and doing things the right way You know whether whether that be in the weight room whether that be in a meeting rooms on the practice field is it's is being good at the little habit of that you do daily In in trying to be bites out for the best you can. That's that's all important tonight. I certainly respect that I think it's an interesting subject this week of all weeks because I know your team is facing some adversity What would you say is the temperature of leadership there? I mean you know did you. You know you specifically coming in follow as as this new guy this season and then find your way man. What's that been like with your role on leading the cowboys? Oh Yeah I mean I think bad you know. Obviously we're we're going through some adversity right now and we're probably at a low point of the season season and the only way we get out of this is is too big ourself out then when it comes to leadership you know you when you come here and you can't. You can't be super vocal. You guys right away you know you gotTa make sure you earn respect you to try to do that. Offie the off season all through Training camp doing little things James and then just my practice is brexit. The right way teammate. Leading by example and it Kinda starts with your group You know I try my best to do everything I can for the seniors and and bill you know we all have different person so being able to semester everyone together and make sure that we're talking communicating and been on the same. I page through everything that we do and continue to go through You know at the end of the day you have to be the best that you can. It'd be put a team and and try to get the best out of everybody in group. You mentioned that you don't always have to be the best player. You know the fastest guy this guy. I know that some things stay in the locker room but who are some some guys and maybe some moments of leadership this season on the cowboys that you've been impressed by You know certainly. In your arrival rival there would be shocking or a little bit surprising other. Why don't think this is a shot but I think back as great leader You know a big around here and they're watching You know just routine and they seem to go through You know his background you you hear a story in the way that you continue to fight in the faith and he had everything he does You Watch You know the little things that he do Barium so For Game Day for practice The way he talks through the week About an opponent in the media rules and stuff like like that So by surprise I think that is one of our leaders and you know everybody go to five. Every time we step out on the field but I I definitely think He's been doing this for a long time. And a Lotta guys have a lot of respect for him and You know being gain kind of an older player. It's sometimes difficult for younger guys to listen to you so sometimes you wanted to take a step back in and while some of those this Guy Stephenson enrolls younger guys step into roles and Out I can't really speak for defense because I you know we're not really around those guys as much the fact that practice so I really couldn't tell you I know I know Jesse his words you watch what they do. Every day. The way they work they they come to work in their their professional about what they do. That's that's all great. And that's all awesome. I think fans will will love to hear that answer and so you certainly know. Audience Randall. you mentioned being older guy. It's funny how you know your line of work can make you feel old at such a young age Do you do you feel old. I mean you're nine at this point you know you're really used to you. Know football and everything going on. It's been so you know big part of your life for so long or do you still feel young And maybe not naive I use but new and fresh but maybe being on a new team is kind of reenergized her in that way When I was talking about older guy I was talking about win? uh-huh myself myself. No I don't feel I don't feel I can order Guy You know I think So obviously I've been in the League for a long time but I'm only twenty nine You know that is a little on the on the older side in this league but You know I I feel young. I still feel like I can play at a high level I hope that showed me with opportunities that I've had this year But yeah I mean. Obviously you know some of the guys coming into the League now their little twenty one twenty two twenty three years old and they were in middle school whenever I started my career so it definitely is sometimes can feel like a disconnect but I think they key young at the same time. We have a lot of similarities celebrities and in in this game that we play some Tom. I it really does keep players young I do feel a little bit on the difference. The maturity level but definitely still feel young. What's what's a way you keep yourself young? Maybe it's a show. You Watch on Netflix. Or maybe maybe you you still watch some trash. TV what's your what's your thing that you know is a little bit revealing their. I honestly think being locker room. You know. That's that's what keeps you young. It's always fun. It's always you know jokes and games and you know playing around and and enjoying enjoying ourselves you know making what we do or play a game for living. You know. That's that's fun you know. We're we're very fortunate enough to the to do that so I think that keeps you. You're young I mean it was like a boom. I'm committed to vote for the most for the most part is you know I'm I'm I'm being that role model. I thought that was for me. I'm trying to be that from my perspective last football thing. You mentioned that you so you think you're doing well with the opportunity. Do you know that you're sitting on more yards and you've had in a season since two thousand fifteen. Do you pay attention that kind of stuff. Yeah I mean I I know that just for the fact that I know that I was I was hurt. I've been heard of these patients injuries. You know Last year missed a bunch of games and Two Thousand Sixteen a few games so I I feel great. You know. They're through the through the season. My body showed up really well. I feel great You know moving around Really good I feel like myself and you know unfortunately we go through injury sometimes and you start. It's a wonder who you are but I know I know that I think I've proved myself in Proved that Accu still do this and I love them through the season. I know you mentioned being a role model for your son. And that's awesome and what you're GonNa do later on today. Do you remember when you learn how to shave. I mean do you remember those kinds of the moments in you know. Maybe you know First Time your dad showed you. I don't know how to mow the lawn or how to drive a stick shift into those things. Stick out in your memory. I don't remember the first time I learned how to save But I do remember watching my bet and I remember a happy happy little shaving kit when I was like five that my my dad got me obviously not with a real razor blade but it was one of those things as I remember using that when I was a kid but I don't remember the first time learning how both my dad was taught me how to mow the line. He thought we have. It's pretty much everything wash cars and all the all the things you do He was always there to lessen awesome. I think that that's sort of the perfect note to end this. I you know the the Bible says that children learn what they live And it sounds like that. Sort of your approach with your children in in with today's youth I mean kind of just serving is a great example and and being someone they can say well. That's how Randall COBB did it is that you know you know who knows what the rest of your career has in store for you is that you know it sounds like that's what you want your your legacy be alternate. Yeah I think so. I always say that you know the way that I try to live. My life is to be a model to kind of be a blueprint for other people. The bill by a and we all have stories. It's not always going to be the exact same. We're always going to have adversity. That we face in different ways and things that we gotta go through But to know that there's something on the other side of adversity There's another life that whatever that is that you want for yourself you you you can accomplish it through hard work and dedication and Through self confidence and continue to grow and learn and be the best. You can be every day you wake up. I think that's good perspective last thing Randall. I saw you gave some love on your instagram to your high school correct And some success they had. Yeah so my my high school Alcohol School back in Tennessee won their fifth straight championship in eighteen. He's been in school history and my nephew who goes to our rival school. They want to know And one state championship this year. and he's he's committed Tennessee right now And his One of my cousins those Americans. Well he's committed to purdue so we got a Lotta got a lot of athletes back where I come from and I'm hoping that I can. I made a friend in a in a model for them How they can make better? That's awesome well. I'm sure that'll make for some fun. Talk around the Christmas table when you get some time Later on hopefully. Hopefully you know you're pretty busy though you know through Christmas in the early part of twenty twenty Randall You're doing great work. Great job in the community and you know it was a pleasure to have have you on happy holidays. Thank you you too very big. Thank you to Randall. Cobb Gillette Grande Prairie Boys and Girls Club for making interview happen if you have not heard a lot of randall conflict between his signing with the cowboys. And now I think you now know. He's a good dude man. He's awesome awesome and he's the type of guy it's easy to root for the type of guy you wanna see. Have Success in his style of play is obviously very fun. He's really physical guy for You know someone that people sort of characterize as a slot receiver and he really approaches the game in life. I think the right way. And that's that's awesome to see it's great to see Randall. Devoting voting a lot of time and energy into giving back into raising. You know the community around him. We need more people in the world. Like Randall Cobb. I think it goes without saying and so Very appreciative of of him for taking the time to join us. It was very fascinating to hear him talk about leadership in especially leadership within the Dallas Cowboys. Because that is something that has been discussed a lot lately in fact it's something that has been criticized lately I wrote about you know. NFL Networks report that You know the team is been expecting more leadership from their younger players. And they're not getting Randall. Obviously visit did not say that but did talk about leadership among the young players. And how you know there's been a focus to let the young guys lead and so I think that's you know I thought it was really powerful or Randall. It'll set about. Sometimes you have to be able to follow to lead. Because I think that's true a lot in life you have to be able to fall nine and understand the way things work before. Maybe you want to try to step into whatever whatever role I mean and I'm talking in any capacity of any job any workplace setting and his school setting I mean obviously you know. Leadership is something that's harped on and talked a lot about with regards regards to sports and football such a powerful sport and allowed and ferocious game that you know the leaderships have been more obvious you know guys screaming and yelling Certainly kind of the face of that but I think Randall had a great point lead in the locker room. He lied in the meeting room It's the little things it's it's stuff like that I remember there. It was a video back. May I WANNA say it was early on in the season. I know he posted on the blog and the boys instagram story. Or maybe we posted an instagram post on. Its it's own by video of kind of the young receiver is making fun of Randall. COBB and the shirt he was wearing that day and just kind of having fun with him and I think that you know that's Randall. Understanding where he is it is point is a little bit old and these guys below to make fun of me and we're all going to bond frog good times etcetera. I mean that's really heads up awareness ernest heads of leadership in Griffin. I think you'd get it and so a very big. Thank you once again to him. Gela into the grand prairie boys and Girls Club awesome to see we will be back on Wednesday a are normally scheduled episodes of the show. So sorry this one went out a little bit late. We did have to accommodate the schedule change. So hopefully you enjoy mixture the best day ever right. I just have the absolute best day. The absolute best Wednesday of all time you know why because you deserve it we will see you magnon on my friends as always go cowboys and peace out. It
Keeping It Kissel
"Oh welcome everybody or a very podcast. this is. What are we even going to call our podcast? Keeping Kissel cast. That's a good question and I felt fine. And then he said everything's live and it was like and then everything went. I know yeah it was weird it went from like feeling totally fine and in pumped till like Holy Shit. We've been thinking about this for a long time obviously for everybody's list that's listening I would actually say this is a lot more The entire keeping kissel brand was all CECELIA's idea this is something you've wanted to do for ever At least like two three solid years of China here eight actually and for me all I wanted to do out of this. Whole deal was podcast. The reason why I wanted to podcast is because for those who don't know Cecilia. I mean you know her on instagram. But she is wise beyond her years and cease like you are. You are so magnetic. I don't know what it is but maybe we'll tell you all their shit he pulled tell you all their secrets if they get to know you and actually become in your inner circle or allow you into their inner circle they open up to you. I'm all bullshit you're all real and it's a really really cool. Thanks yeah this first episode. I th I think would be great for people to get to know us how I mean. I've got an episode in mind for us to talk about how he met. But more people to get to know you and your story My goal is to kind of interview and keep the train on the tracks but that was my thought that I think that's a great idea. I I guess maybe start start from the beginning. Everybody always asks what your heritage is because you look so unique. I was are you. Cecilia Kissel So my dad is German and My mom is Bolivia N- so I'm I would say fifty fifty and my dad is actually a Mennonite so I would probably say he's hundred percent. German. There's no said something funny about men and night Women and how they dress hotel yes dressed. Oh yeah so. We're coming back when we were in school and all of the mennonite girls Which my my dad. And my whole family left them in a colony though they're not They're not practicing mennonites. But my dad grew up that way so it was a deeply ingrained but At school all of the mennonite girls would wear their dresses with their runners. And that's trendy. Now Yeah and we didn't make fun of people than it wasn't like that but it was like a an obvious difference. Obvious difference would show up and wear that for sports days. The only the only sports they were really allowed to do was Track and field because their lives were to Pre committed to their lifestyle and working the farm and in the kitchen and those kinds of things so they wouldn't be able to commit to Sports true but they could do track and field so you would see all of these young ladies in their dresses and their runners running track and field and they usually beat everybody in New York. No we were in Toronto. And everybody's literally wearing floral print dresses those white Feel or Nike shoes. Cousins were ahead of their time. How they really were. And you grew up in northern Alberta. I mean a lot of people know him from Flat Lake Just outside of Saint Paul Bonneville area you met in Bonneville yes but you grew up in Hines creek what I was born in Fairview Alberta but my my dad's family all settled in Wordsley Alberta. Which is even further from grand prairie but then We I I grew up in Hines Creek. Yup and what are some of your fondest memories of growing up Growing up in the country in the country just like being in the dirt all the time. You do say that a lot being just on earth for our kids. Oh yeah having your bare feet in like garden soil or your hands like picking out carrots or potatoes fresh for supper. There's nothing like that You know it's funny because there are a lot of kids that think that fruit or vegetables literally come from the grocery store. Yeah but it's like I feel so blessed to be able to teach the girls like that food comes from the planet and it's our job to care for the planet for sure. I remember vividly as a kid watching One of our neighbors when she was when she was on the combine. And going around our acreage. I actually go to our garden. Which was we had a huge garden like this wasn't like she was stealing or anything but she would go into our garden. She break off a piece of rhubarb and wash it in the rain barrel. And then edit and you ever sugar No because I never liked rhubarb unless it was in rhubarb critic treat this snap it off dipping into the Little Cup of sugar so mean. Grandpa always had a great garden. Grandma Betty had an incredible. Herb leaves are poisonous. Did you know that I thought it was just point? Seta LEAVES NO SERIOUS DOUBLE. Check THAT. But pretty sure. I wonder how much you'd have to eat to Croak. I'm not sure I'm not sure. Can you go out? Is it actually really poisonous? Pretty sure Dr believes 'cause point Cetera. Leaves is bad for the cats. It'll kill cats. Yeah which is that cats like the moment they see them. I saw eager up on there. And he's like you know like he's chewing it and you're like why. Why is that even thought? Well you know me and how much I care for those cats but I know you're super passionate over the moon over the star worlds very kind of thing so then you go from Hines Creek into Bonneville and what grade you dates confirmed. They are poisonous. It is yes to eat ten pounds of rhubarb leaves. That I think like you can't feed it to animals or horses or things like that. It affect them differently and dressing Well just kill me. Random knowledge up here When you when you move to Bonneville it was for High School. What grade was that great eleven three and eleven or not? It was the choice. I made a choice. I didn't move When I was in grade I chose to stay and finish my year. My family moved and I stayed. Yeah Yeah and I guess I don't know if you want if you want to reveal this about your how many siblings you've got and kind of the five And reach two years apart Yeah we'll I'm excited to see them over the holidays. Yeah of course yeah. Yeah I'm I've never been more nervous ever at not that I had many many girlfriends and maybe only had like two serious girlfriends before but meeting your family especially just in your family background and now actually spending time with Yvonne and Areco Getting they're buying was an especially vence. Was everything that I needed. Because like your dad at the time wasn't that I wasn't as concerned but a super concerned about Yvonne. Somehow I had such a deep respect for my siblings so it was like really important to me that whoever I chose to spend my life with Could integrate into my family somehow Just because I think a lot of families can split up over that if it's not or Distance I mean. Our our lives puts a lot of distance between our family Between your family my family just because it doesn't allow as much space For us to give the time that relationships need to grow your we love our families endlessly. We spend as much time with them as we can but we sacrificed a lot for your career. Yeah we'll of course. I'm how I'm obviously thankful that you do that but I miss them a lot. Especially young so my favorite memories were when you first started dating. I would come and we were just watching movies. Yeah the House. It was so interesting because my family from outside looking in was seemed to be very together right now in your family coming into. That house was such a special thing because everybody cared for each other and we would absolutely I would yeah I don't know if that's like super common but It is in Malaya movies. We I would like to say we don't fight or have like our disagreements. You know. We might be confrontational and go at it. Head on but we don't avoid the issue and Flow through it pretty quickly and then there's just like we all kind of just enjoy each other's company for sure at least that's how I feel so when I when I came into the picture. Did you tell your family about me before it kind of met everybody or did you know what if. I remember the bash. I'm pretty sure we were friends. And My dad told me about you as an artist like he had saw you know that this guy was going to be playing in town and he loves country music so I think he was sold. I knew he was like an easy. Sell 'cause he just loves country music but for me Yeah I would not make that association I for them because it didn't matter to me I just like to. You still doesn't matter to you now. It really doesn't. I just love that you love what you do that. You're passionate about it so I think people would find. This interesting is that I thought you were dating a lot sooner like a year. No why months and months. I mean. We'll some of the things that we're doing would do the with me if you're like. Oh Yeah but we're two years apart so I'm two years older so you would have been seventeen would have been nineteen. My friends were in university. You were exiting highschool so which which. I never told you that. You didn't know that right that you thought we were dating. No no no yes. I know you didn't know that. I thought that you didn't know that. I thought we were dating when we definitely were dating because I was telling everybody in my circle that you're my girlfriend. Yeah you were. I An. I was not doing that. I thought we were just like I wasn't seeing anybody else necessarily by the time you thought that it just wasn't I think a conversation and then When you're nineteen. I don't think people your slightly jaded and I don't think Once you're out of high school that you're quick to commit to a relationship right and so for me. It was like. Oh Yeah we're just we're just fleeing. We're just doing this. This was more like I just was not a person I wasn't like in that mindset. I wasn't eager to settle down. I was nineteen. And then you're like so. Many states are percents shut. It was it was. It was love at first sight on. I get a million times. I do get it because if somebody if somebody was behaving in highschool the way that we were that would have been dating one hundred percent right but when you're like the at the age of university people are playing the field more. They're getting around. They're getting out. It's like nobody wants to label anything you know. So those two years difference. Although they make no difference now they did make a difference. Then do you remember some of the things that you had said like? You had your own checklist of things that you needed for someone to be. Oh Yeah like your husband. Yes I was a little girl. I remember reading this magazine Article and it was about Basically now how we would word it is like manifesting your dream and yeah but at the time it was like Prayer work I would say like a religious aspect or connection about like dreaming to fulfil to fill those you know to fill that And so yeah it is. It said to make list like a detailed list of like what you want your future spouse. I was probably like twelve and I wrote it out like in detail. It was like I want a man who plays the piano. Yes so you said that to me which is funny and I and I bought a piano. Yeah and you do play the piano. Not many people know that And you do it beautifully Thank you I wanted. A man who had blue eyes and light hair and who was kind and gentle and Obviously respectful and it went on and on. I don't I don't think I added the hide in there but like had I. I'm sure you know like obviously manifestation work had you asked about height you definitely would have wanted. Somebody told kissing height. Oh thank you I I I mean for me and my dream girl although I never really thought about it I didn't expect to my wildest dreams that you being as exotic as you are songs Ronnie White Men would be in my league. I thought I'd I'd wind up with somebody very normal very normal. No not even close. I would wind up with somebody very Fiat. And I mean if I if I describe this person anybody who looks this way is going to get very offended because tread late. I just thought I'd get the the beauty is in the eye of the beholder is such a real real thing. Yeah he really comes down to like your own preferences and who you found attractive as a kid or who is kind to you how they We put attachments to those things. Or you're very very personality. Based oh my gosh yeah. It was for everybody watching Because this is a youtube series as well We've got some great some really killer stuff that Cecilia designed merchandise. Yeah be kind just an important thing to read every morning but he wants a modern there. We're GONNA switch to wine and maybe some whiskey a little bit later. I wonder how much wine you could fit in one of these. I wonder probably two and a half glasses. Two thirds of a bottle maiming. That's pretty decent. Who got you the Cup that said this? This might be wine. CAITLIN CAITLIN assists. They're gonNA have her and Jason on our podcast. Actually all couples. We're GONNA get well depends on. How many people we we get listening to this day. Yeah but back to manifesting my dream girl your dream guy so we finally do get together and a lot of people kind of how do I say doers? A lot of negativity around how fast I fell for you and the fact that I asked you to marry I think people really struggle Remembering what puppy love was and when that transitions into like true love and then I think people Forget what it was like to be young. I think that's one thing I've really committed to myself in this process of parenting is that I won't forget. Yeah like I remember my first break up. And how like downright brutal that was and so when the kids go through their experiences I WANNA remember that and hold onto it and hold space for them to feel all the feelings because nobody did that for me and from my experience with you. I don't know that anyone did that for you. Too and space for my feelings. Yeah Yeah I never felt feelings your feelings but your feelings of love to your feelings for me. It was very like The attitude that it could be squashed that it could be removed that it could be taken away like that. It wasn't real and it's like I don't care how old you are Your feelings are so I wanNA swear. But they're so fucking real of course and like not only are they still real But I would almost say the younger you are the less jaded you are the more raw it is. Oh absolutely. Because you've you're feeling these things for the very first time. Yeah you just think future generations. Don't respect children or their feelings in. It's like you are just as much human as a child as you are as a forty year old fifty year old person. Of course that's not okay. Yeah well I know that you're gonNA do great job. Were were both going to do the best. We are best young kids. Yeah but anyways to move back to People not being in support of our relationship. Nobody got it. We got it. I mean we've been together. We've BEEN MARRIED FOR EIGHT YEARS. Going eight and a half years going on nine. We've been together for nine. Almost yeah and hallows after nine ten. What are we GONNA do for a tenth? I have no idea. Where did you get? I don't know but it's GonNa be good Tell us have. We been together total while we met March fifteenth. Two Thousand Eight. So yeah I mean. We've been together that summer's when we really got together. Yeah says at twelve years by that summer I was telling everybody you're my girlfriend by the winter. I think we enjoyed Christmas together. I did come to your Christmas that year. Right of Oh eight okay. Yeah Yeah and so there is a lot of pushback I mean. I don't know if you've ever been so serious about someone I have no idea like. I don't know your here's your history. I two girlfriends in high school I broke up with a one of them. One of them broke up with me and the newest like super attached. I don't know we'll know because I know what love is so I never said I love you because I should probably mention that the first time I met you. And you don't remember meeting mean this is like a funny story because which I was going to do. Actually an episode eight. But that's okay. Let's tell everybody know whatever. It just came up so I met you. You don't remember meeting me. We have a short story in a long story of it. It's funny because you ask the you. You tell the long version of it. So we sat out in the grass. And like I went to. What was it centennial? Bonneville was hosting a centennial for the province of Berta. You're right you're performing. I didn't know that you were performing. I was just there with friends and you were friends with my friends so we just all sat and hung out and I thought you were so sweet but that was like it. There wasn't like instant connection clearly. Not for you because you don't remember and We were just with a group of friends and then you performed reason why. I don't like this story. I remember everything. Bread has steel. Remember up like but I have a feeling that if we were to go back and that like if you fell in love if you're smitten then the. Us You were fifteen. I was seventeen. What would that have done? What would that have accomplished our? We definitely would. I don't think would have nice school out of relationship then Yelich head. It would have never worked. I know so if you had like connected to me then. What would that have done other? Everything happens for exactly so I don't remember you at all from that. We went backstage after you had invited us all backstage but you were like really good friends with one of the girls that I was really good friends with. And so that's how that worked out and we came back and hung out and I remember you talking about your current girlfriend at the time right and you were like smitten like it was like the sun and moon rose and set on her behind. It was like wow and I in in it resonated with me because I had been dating guys. Were like Maybe jocks or jerks or whatever and the I just thought they would never like they when they talked about women it was like the ball and chain the old lady like it was very negative and you stood out to me in such a big way and I I remember thinking I didn't think to myself like Oh i WanNa be with that guy. It was like I want someone like that. I want someone to talk about me that way. When I'm not in the room I want someone to swoon over me that way and here. We are what I remember meeting you. I guess your time. My first time March Fifteenth Two Thousand Eight the Bonneville Eggs society or pro Rodeo was bringing the chuck wagons into town. I know that you've got the last pair of tickets and so I went with the same friend. Yeah so Yeah I remember when you came in. Is this on TV. You see what? I'm doing right now. So did eight Bonneville and they're bringing the chuck wagons into town and so I did the dance. Yeah And Clint was in the van to support her Kelly. I didn't know you were playing. I didn't really like I remember you want. It was just down dress pants and a slate. Silver Gray metallic metallic Almost like a tube top. Yeah shoplift strapless top. Just unbelievable. You're tanned is could be you move beautiful green. I literally it was like it was like Like a Tom and jerry or a looney toon episodes like Ruga feeling. I'll tell everybody so. During the dance I played peaceful easy feeling the eagles and I sing the first part ways. Berkeley any rings lay. Yeah Yeah where where was your skin in Soho Brown and then I walked off the stage and I asked if Cecilia would dance with me yet and he had his band continue plan playing and so at that point. It was a big risk. I talked to the guy about that. It was going to do it before you did intermission intermission and they kind of all dared me. And they're like yeah. It'll never happen right because your way out of my league. I mean it wasn't a team and so but you said yes and I'm really thankful that you did I mean can't leave guy hanging I I did have a boyfriend at the time I know yeah and I. He was Super Nice so like I knew that he was in like a jealous type. I knew that it wasn't going to be like gossip. This or that like he was a very chill person to chill. That's how it ended. He didn't care enough but you know but it was that moment. That was a huge turning point for me because then we started facebook and I just couldn't get enough so one of the greatest gifts that you ever gave me. I think it was for maybe our five year anniversary. It might have been my birthday. I don't remember when I got it but you had printed off all of our facebook letters. I did that. Yeah my office right now. Are you kidding me? There's probably three hundred pages. God that gets a staple it together did. I is a book. What did they tell me? What did I do you you? You wrapped it all within a burlap like a string. Yeah like those kind of standings and then you put it in a box with tissue paper all around it and was just every single one of our basic our love letters. I did not know that I did that what I do remember doing that are so happy that she did it. That's so sweet was it? Did I give it to you and I did that scrapbook? No that scrapbook was was way earlier way earlier. We should bring that on here we should. It's so good it's still in Nashville. Yeah but when it fast forward over the last ten twelve years. We've been together now doing this. Podcast as we kind of wrap up this episode and how you grew up in Hines Creek in the Bonneville unit. I met a little bit and I think over. The course of these episodes will let people know more of our journey water. Some of the key things that you want people to get out of our story and the things that we're going to share is it. Just get to know US better. Because we've developed you know I guess a fan base now who care about us in our journey or is there something deeper that you hope people will guess things. I think the biggest thing is like we all want to inspire others. Maybe we don't all but I feel like our generation is like to initiate change and growth in You know to just inspire someone would be such a blessing but furthermore To connect to connect with people in a way that if year like drawn into one no more. You have questions or things that we can shed light on or if things that worked for us in our relationship are currently working as parents as You know just human beings or I miss experience. I hope that anybody who listens to this. Even though this is our very first First one out of the gate more of an introduction. I hope that we can find some topics we can talk with everybody on obviously on instagram. Keeping it Kissel or your Cecilia. Kissel mind Brett Castle and say if you want us to talk about something. You really want to know how we do this. We don't like to should on anybody and says that to us all the time not tell you what we think you should do. But just say this is what we do. If it's going to help you great if it doesn't help you that's fine but I think that we could really help out a lot of other couples with some of the Shit that we've been through the struggle that sharing is caring and I think that if you have time and energy to share with people One of my favorite things about social media is people telling me their stories. Yeah I find it so moving and when people comment I do my best to like minimum like the comment which at once. I've read it so I do read every single one and The ones that really moved me over respond back but as we end see so let know what our mission statement is here so keeping it kissel. The lifestyle brand focused on supporting and celebrating family. Equality and unity why those filigree pillars so obviously family is the most important thing to us Obviously before we had children family was like meant a lot to both of us but now that we have children holy shit next level next level stuff So anything we can do to support them and to teach them how to love and share and care and all those things The second point you said equality equality That's a big one. That's a huge one for me which I'm sure we'll dive into furthermore to be equal to your partner to be immoral As human beings. I don't care who you are. I don't care if you are the richest person on the planet the most successful person on the planet. We all have the same heartbeat. We all have the same blood running through our veins and we are all just people and if we could just treat each other like we are equal because we are nothing makes you better than me and nothing makes you less than me if we can do that. I think we'll all be better off. I agree and then lost his unity. Why is that so important you together? We're stronger while everybody. I really hope that you're going to enjoy these conversations back and forth over. I don't know how we have no idea how many were going to do. We have no idea where this is going to go.

The view from a COVID hot spot
"Item One economic statistics what they tell you and what they do not item to the federal. Reserve is I believe making a point. I three. Oh. You know everything else. From American public media. This is marketplace. Los Angeles I'm Kai Ryssdal. It is Tuesday today to sixteenth June good his always. Have you long everybody? We are going to begin today with an object lesson in if it sounds too good to be true. Probably kind it is the Commerce Department enlightened us this morning about the state of retail sales in this economy, specifically the report for May eye. Popping is a word. You could use up almost eighteen percent from April. A record percentage gain wise. But. You really want to judge this economy right now on a month to month comparison. I didn't think so. Marketplaces have replenish orbits is gone. When New York started reopening, it was time for William, bell to go outside I. Just want to go and do run an air. Don't WanNA. Get Out of the House so off. He went to the majestic soothing aisles of Home Depot I needed an up picking out a flower pot. I got the advice of the people who work there and she literally came up right. Right next to me and was helping. Pick out the right one. It was a little weird being that close to each other, but we both had masks on, so we kind of just accepted it. Lots and lots of William. Bells went shopping last month. Clothing and accessory store sales were up a hundred and eighty eight percent month over month, furniture and home furnishings up ninety. Ninety percent electronics and appliances up fifty one percent. If you take out car, dealers, gas and restaurants, retail sales were actually up one point seven percent in May year over year, according to the National Retail Federation. Where Jack Klein's chief economist with scattered more good news for the economy category, good news for the consumer, and now let's all go shopping for a brand new reality. Reality Check Lindsey Piazza has one for free. She's chief economist at steal. Yes, we did have some pent-up demand, but going forward with unemployment benefits ending with the P. P P program coming to an end, will the consumer be able to continue to spend at these more positive levels no according to jobs wallace at RSM, my sense is that the pub- doesn't quite understand. Politics many policymakers for that matter. The fiscal cliff that awaits the US economy in just six weeks six weeks is about when those additional unemployment payments end dazzling increases. Aside retail sales are still down eight percent off their January peak and yeah. Lots of businesses will come back, but some loan David Schwartz is an equity analyst. At morningstar research, some people will be permanently employed who right now may not understand that the Federal Reserve estimates that at the end of the year another six months from now the unemployment rate will still be at nine percent in New York. I'm revenge. Sure for marketplace. Okay so speaking of the Fed. We're going to do a brief disquisition. Now of the Federal Reserve I what it is saying and then what it is doing, it has not escaped our notice round these parts, and in the past couple of days, a couple of three presidents of Regional Federal Reserve banks have been out and about commenting on some economic issues of the day I. It was Rob Kaplan of the Dallas Fed on face the nation. This pass on fiscal policy from here is to be a critical element of the recovery. Fiscal Policy Congress in the White House taxing and more to the point spending then Mary Daly of the San Francisco Fed at a national press club event with marketplace's Kimberly. Adams monetary policy alone can't quit us back to where we need to be. We also need fiscal policy makers to commit to sustained investments in our economic future. The need for this was evident before the crisis, and it's even more evident now. Then on this program yesterday Rafael Bostick of the Atlanta Fed when I asked him whether he'd agree with what his colleagues said I'm committed to going and talking to policy makers, making sure they're aware of places where there does seem to be distressed continuing as a result of the pandemic, and I'm going to encourage them to think hard about doing things to help those people. So. That's a yes. The point being fed seems focused incredibly focused on getting congress to do something and doing it sooner rather than later. One more thing about all three of those people they each said some variation of this. This is Rafael boss here yesterday. For many people. The systemic racism is so ingrained in everything that we do on a basic level that they don't even see it. They don't think about it as A. Inhibitor of African Americans ability to do the things that other people get to do with no questions and I think what's changed is that people are seeing things happen? That are getting them to think well. Maybe things are different for African Americans. Maybe we should talk about this more and get a deeper understanding. Let me just in a rare moment of shameless self-promotion. Here recommend to you that interview. I did yesterday with Dr Bostick. It was all him the good stuff, not me. It's on our website also and more to the point. His Essay on systemic racism in this economy will have a link to that, too obviously marketplace dot org. Art So as promised what the Fed is doing and it is doing a lot among the latest. The Central Bank started buying corporate bonds today. That is not new. It was announced a couple months ago, but it's big deal as the Fed what it can to backstop companies and their employees, marketplace's Nancy Organza explains how it's GonNa work. When a company wants to borrow money, it can issue corporate bonds. The buyers of those bonds are lending those companies money now the Fed is going to buy a broad cross section of corporate bonds. If they meet certain standards, they must have been rated as investment grade. That is less risky as of March before the. The coronavirus lockdown started Christopher Wayland is chair of Waylon. Global advisors to the Fed is trying to be helpful because they are really uncertain about what's going to happen later. This fear Wayland says the Fed wants to be sure companies have all the money they need to. Whether the pandemic. The Fed is also making this program anonymous, just buying up corporate bonds without anybody asking it to that avoids any stigma from companies requesting fit help. Catherine judge is a Columbia University law professor. There's always a concern that if you're looking to the Federal Reserve as opposed to the market for financing, you might be revealing something about how desperate you are for financing the. If companies have all the financing. They need at reasonable rates with the Fed buying their bonds. They won't need to lay off more workers. Frank. No Taff is chief economist at core logic. The purpose is to help. These companies remain good employers in the marketplace stand on their feet, not lay people off, and hopefully bring people back into the into the workforce, and if a company isn't able to stay on its feet and defaults on the bonds the Fed. Chairman J PAL can turn to an emergency fund set up by the Treasury Department to backstop the Fed. I'm Nancy Marshall Genzer for marketplace. Wall Street today stopped me, would you? If you've heard this one before? The trump administration is floating a one trillion dollar infrastructure plan. Yes, it is infrastructure week again. That was all traders needed to hear? We'll have the details when we do the numbers. The big unknown in this economy. Well one of them anyway because there are a lot of big unknowns to be honest, is as jober swallow. Sit in Sabrina piece. What is going to happen when expanded unemployment benefits run out at the end of next month, even with tens of millions more people than usual, still being out of a job. Unemployment is policy worry over in China as well the official statistics. Say the jobless rate is around six percent the real figure, almost certainly a good deal higher market Blazers Jennifer pack set out to discover China's unemployed or getting along and it turns out. They're doing better than you might think. John Lee is an assistant manager at this entertainment center in Shanghai, some three hundred miles away from his home village in Eastern Province during the pandemic. His salary was cut then later, he was placed on. Faced with these setbacks, he did something you might not expect. He started planning a vacation. Home and I have not traveled. Since I started working in since there were no part-time jobs opening during the pandemic, I started looking at places that were not badly affected by the coronavirus at a time when most of us are vacationing on our couch, jangly packed hat, some swimming shorts, and he flew to southern Hainan. Island a genuine had had. Mostly spent my time at the Beach Surfing Swimming and shopping that one week vacation cost him a thousand dollars about a month salary for him, but less than the average monthly wage Shanghai. So, how does someone who hasn't been paid? A regular wage for four months afford a last-minute beach vacation well savings. I'd usually put away three to four thousand a month about half his take home pay the latest available data on savings in China comes from two thousand sixteen. It shows the average household put away thirty six percent of disposable income in the US. It's just seven percent. UTING is an institution in China's. Who May province? She saves regularly for her daughter's education, her own retirement and medical care for her elderly parents China may be Communist, but under its healthcare system still have to pay, and a big illness can bankrupt a family home unclog. Oil in the US, you can have a comfortable life with a job house and a car, but even if you have all that in China, we still feel insecure. You says she usually saves at least forty percent of her salary, which has come in handy during the pandemic. She was furloughed for three months then when she returned to work, her boss cut wages by so much. She resigned, but she felt it was a layoff in disguise like most people who move to the cities for uting has returned home to the countryside to plan her next step. Easy or harder mindset has changed a bit with the pandemic. I will definitely save more in the future. Luckily, the apartment she's living in was paid off just before the pandemic hit with a little help from her parents in law, the Bank of Mom and dad is usually the first place. People in China's seek help, even though most are big savers themselves a recent marketplace Edison poll showed that two out of five Americans survey didn't have two hundred and fifty dollars to spare say for an unexpected medical bill at the end of the month, a statistic that shocked ut. Or you can. Noah I don't believe it. I think most Chinese families can easily take out two hundred fifty dollars without a problem. I can shout high gently is back at work. Managing the entertainment center even got a bit of a race. Ordinary Sunday you're. On the phone with his mom, he tells her he just got paid, and we'll be sending her money that she will save on his behalf as usual Jonglei says mom brags to her friends about how much he saves a habit. She says that will fend off poverty and perhaps even attract bride. In show. Hi, I'm Jennifer pack for marketplace. Small businesses have been hit hard by this quarantine. Black owned small businesses especially hard. Some of them though are getting a boost now. Thanks to some twenty first century word of mouth.

I was all over this valley, Delivering Bach Lavar and meeting the most amazing people. All of them more white. All of them wanted to support. My business I didn't feel like it was charity. They want to support black members of the community, and what better way to do that than to support their businesses, because we want to have thriving businesses where we put in a good day's work and make a product and my case that people enjoyed. Now I'm thinking like. Wow! If this business continues one day soon I'll be able to be a homeowner again and home. Ownership is huge when it comes totally wealth one of the major ways to close that gap between blacks and whites Istra, home ownership and this last year when I had to sell my house, it was one of the most depressing times in my life because I thought you know. Did I do the right thing trying to build this business to the point where I had to sell my home? I feel like a miracle has happened because I tell you what three months ago. I would have never in a million years. Guests that my business would be doing is just booming right now. That was read a mcgarvy. She's in draper. Utah also makes the best Bach- Lavar ever or so we're told. This series only works with your help. You know, and especially, even if you're not a great cook. You can hook us up marketplace dot. com. Up We were were largely able to keep it out. It being that global pandemic, but first. Let's do the numbers. Dow Industrial's up five twenty six today, two percent, twenty, six, thousand to eighty nine, the Nasdaq gained a hundred and sixty nine points, one point, seven percent, Ninety, eight and ninety, five, the S. and P. Five hundred advanced fifty eight points about one point, nine percent, thirty, one and twenty four. Would that big retail sales number. That maybe wasn't so big. That's telling you about. Retail stocks were among the big gainers gap through eight point, four percent today Coles advanced eight point nine percent bonds fail yield on the tenure keynote, zero point seven five percent listening to marketplace. This is marketplace. I'm Kai Ryssdal. The board of regents at Texas A and M University has voted to create a one hundred million dollars scholarship fund to address diversity on that systems, eleven campuses. Specifically, the school said to make the university better reflect the population of Texas, which is twelve percent black black students though are less than four percent of the population at the Texas ainum system's flagship campus. From Austin Texas, marketplace and Euler spent his day figuring out how that was all going to work Texas am student Felix read grew up in an upper class suburb Houston. He's now a senior studying finance ams main campus in college station. He's white and describes his college campuses social bubble. We've grown up with the same type of people. At least that's been my experience and we become accustomed to. To those same people once we could say, he would like to see more people who don't look like him on campus. It'll prepare him for the workforce. He says right now, too many am students have a hard time understanding the civil unrest after the police killing of George Floyd Minneapolis Elaine Mendoza heads the board of regents, Texas. She says with the country, so focused on social inequities. There's. There's a sense of urgency to diversify the student body. There's no better time to get it off the ground to make the tough investment and right now the university is planning to Dole out the hundred million dollars in diversity scholarships over ten years, Julie Keller Executive Director of the higher learning advocates says more schools will be rolling out new diversity initiatives like Texas. A and she says the money. Money is a good start the key though is watching that implementation. The key is to watch how it plays out hello students are not only being reached, but how they're being served through rather time on campus. In other words, scholarships can change your demographics, but once you improve the numbers than it's about inclusion Keller says schools have to make their campuses feel more welcoming to more people. In Austin Texas, I'm Andy Ula for marketplace. Back in two thousand thirteen. We went out to Sioux Falls South Dakota for a series about this economy that were working better at the local level than maybe might have been apparent by looking at the national headlines. And one of the companies we visited back then was a small business called grand prairie food. It makes eggs and stuff hotel, breakfast, buffets and package breakfast sandwiches for grocery and convenience stores. It is also literally down the road like a mom and a half from that Smithfield pork processing plant that's been one of the hot spots of the pandemic. That might have heard about anyway. Anyway, Kirtland back is the CEO of grand. Prairie Foods Missile Adamec talk to you again. Hey, good to talk to you as well. Tell me, would you? What this thing look like on the way in for Grand Perry foods well, it's been quite an adventure out here in the heartland and actually when when things started to unravel back in March across the country I. I was on vacation with my wife. In South Africa and we, we literally landed the week that were really starting to heat up and I got back home just in time to have about eighty percent of our purchase orders cancelled. Because you know as you know, were pretty heavily involved in the hospitality and travel industry with our Food Service Operations and those folks were shutting. Shutting down very quickly about that time and decide, they didn't need it anymore. Yeah I remember when we were out there a number of years ago. I remember the whole. The whole big scrambled egg thing it was. It was quite the Quite the Senate machinery. I'm so, what are you? What did you do? How did you react as you work to save Your Business? Well. We're still working to save our business because you know you don't replace eighty percent of your business, overnight and Fortunately since you've been here, we established a second operation that we move that food service business to and the plant that that that you had visited when you were out. Here has turned into a packaged goods facilities, so you know as has happened with a lot of people as food service, a survey operations wound down. We're able to ramp up packaged goods business, so so that facility is running six days a week, two shifts day and and We're really pumping out a lot of stuff to rebuild our business with package goods. Did you do the whole PP to get some operating cash and SORTA? Taizhou over? We did the very fortunate to have qualified for that, and that quite frankly was a lifesaver it would. This would be a difficult road without that, so we're really grateful that that opportunity was there. I want to ask you a lot in back about the epidemiology of this thing, because you are in Sioux Falls, as is that big Smithfield pork plant Yeah, how worried are you? How worried were you when this was starting about your employees I imagined? Probably you have family. Members of your workers who work online and that that was a rough couple weeks. I tell you what because you know. It was shortly maybe a week or two after you know, we started shutting things down that that happened, and so you know we all just still kind of learning how to deal with this virus, and and how to keep it out of our facilities and keep people safe. And you're right. We do share a lot of family members with workers over there. We had kind of heard rumors early that they were having some issues over there and. So, we were tooted fortuitous enough that. we actually any employees who was associated with lived with family member whatever of an employee at Smithfield to stay home and. Do that for two weeks and so we were fortunate that we did have some of those folks that got positive results, but they weren't in our facility at the time that that happened, so we were were largely able to keep it out so in say a year would business going to be like at a grocery foods. Yeah, so you know as I stated it early we we lost about eighty percent of our business day one. We've recovered probably close to half of that with the other. Other package goods and You know we feel optimistic that within the next six to twelve months were. We'll be doing okay. You know we're not going to be doing as well as we were before with full operations going, but we feel pretty good about where we're going with our business. Well Best of luck to you Kirtland back. He's the owner and CEO actually of Grand Prix foods out in Sioux falls south goes missile back. Thanks for your tonsure. Appreciate. You Bet thanks! I appreciate the time. Despite the note on the way out today, about which it'll be interesting to see what the number is for this year giving USA's out with its annual report on charitable giving in this country, just shy of four hundred fifty billion dollars for two thousand and nineteen. That's a record in non inflation adjusted dollars. It's up a bit more than four percent from a year earlier. That of course was with a growing economy and the stock market that was shall we say overperforming circumstances that don't necessarily attach right now. Are. We gotta go here. Though is you're a moment of economic context for this? What to Tuesday right? Yes, sorry forgot. It's a book end of sorts to Sabrina piece on retail.

Dallas Morning News 7/20/20
"Good morning, it's Monday July twentieth I'm Alex Brody and here are the top stories from the Dallas Morning News it'll be generally sunny today with a high of ninety six expect a few clouds tonight with a low of seventy six. Our Top story is Dallas County Health and Human Services reported one thousand and forty four new coronavirus cases and two deaths yesterday the latest fatalities were in Irving man in his fifties, who had no underlying health problems and a grand prairie man in his seventies with underlying health conditions. The county said that both had been hospitalized in critical condition. The numbers bring the county's case counts to forty, one, thousand, two, hundred, sixty six cases, or about fifteen point seven. Seven for everyone, one thousand resonance and five hundred and twenty five deaths yesterday the State reported seven thousand three hundred cases, which is a dip after nearly a week of ten thousand plus statewide cases, the county said that since June first there has been a rising number of positive cove in nineteen cases in people between the ages of eighteen and thirty nine. The cases are being associated with large social and recreational gatherings that have taken place since early June. In political news suburban voters group that's helped. Keep Texas Republicans in power for decades. is now a core component of the Democratic Party's political resurgence since the election of president, Donald Trump suburban voters, particularly women have become one of the fastest growing segments of the Democratic Party, helping to power victories in Congressional and State House races, and potentially making Texas the biggest battleground state in the country, suburban voters are changing the face of the Democratic Party, which, in past years heavily dependent on turnout from the Party's black and Hispanic pace, the new coalition which includes an influx of democratic voters, moving here from other states, has put an emphasis on moderate politics, just as parts of the party's core have increasingly moved to the left Republicans say. Say, the loss of suburban voters is problematic, but view the notion of trump losing in Texas says fool's gold. Trump has taken notice of the suburban shifts last week he made pointed appeals to suburban voters, warning that former Vice President Biden and Democratic Party policies would cause their property values to decrease and crime to rise his comments were not unlike those made by people opposed to desegregation polls show trump losing ground with suburban voters, especially college educated women a poll by The Dallas Morning News and the University of Texas at Tyler conducted at the end of June through early July, showed Biden opening a five point lead on trump in Texas.

And then here's the best part, our friend, Sean bowls is going to be coming in, and wrapping up the entire conference, so that being sent, I'm going to hand it over to. Ears truly, Sean, takeaway, my friend. I can't use the best part. Thank you. All be talking about hearing God's voice for your world. Lonzo, especially business leaders onto preneurs. We're gonna talk about a hearing God's voice for real for real, like, we need to like you have to be a profit if you're going to have to your God. And so we're gonna talk about when I say profit, we're old charismatic also saying, God's nobody wants and he, he planned preplanned all these industries, and all these things are all city, our whole nation way before we ever entered into it way before manifested. So how do we hear and bring a line that was his original heart and what we see today? And so we're gonna we're gonna talk about this survey his heart knowing heart areas, art, and it's going to be revolution. Nations of checking out get on. Are you real? Or you can get on event. Bright is kingdom conference. Get your tickets were running some discounts. You get some of Shawn's, e course you his book, my book and anyways it's going to be phenomenal time. So please, get on there. Now get tickets while you can and have a blessed day. Right. Ready? You will learn here. I am fired up. So in my humble opinion, the two biggest events in Texas, this year going to be two months. Back the back. We're going to be shooting in may thirtieth through June. First is going to be the symposium in July twenty eighth. We're gonna have kingdom conference in emerald Texas. So that being said, I'm super excited to have Sean on and talk about the symposium. We're gonna talk about the prophetic in all the goodness. That happens with it. So Sean, took it away, buddy. I am so excited about these events because one of them we have, how do you hear God's voice for your industry? Your business detainment. Also, of course, the church while log ministry, but we have something happening every hours different. So there's like interviews panel speakers discussion times, and the main sessions people have to pick on breaks, just as, as, as many sessions is you wanna go to twelve hours a day or two days, there's the one it starts off. It's in the people who are coming, I love the voices John Deere, who's one of my heroes. You know, Chris vaulted a businessman Anna minister who's leading the spilled ministry in Bethel church running California. But it's such an entrepreneur meets politicians entrepreneurs world also battles tech company, which is amazing that we have Cindy Jacobs, who's going to be interviewed in talking about what it's like house. She start out in the prophetic. What made our profits the nations, some of the stories where she's met with more presidents in probably any other minister generation. When we have we have the spoil lineup Joyner catch out, do seeing them from South Africa England, and she's a physical physician, but she's teaches on a ministry in the power of that. And what, what is women's or the current charismatic, Pentecostal evangelical worl-, and she's writing, she's written a book on the or women. It's not just securely topic. Topic from minimum actually empower the writing him, all of this speakers coming together, and our in goal is that when people walk away from the bat that, of course, the intellectually, they're going to have a new level spiritual tolerance, but especially for the prophetic, but they're also going to be impacted by the atmosphere. The turtles will Jesus culture, Rick, Pino banned, the Binion's and upper, they're gonna have these encounters to take information assemblyman at spiritually think it's going to be really important. So the goal of this is just advertised confident parka suit what it's occupies, I think God's changing the narrative in the conversation over prophetic ministry, prophecy, in profits. Generation and I think that we're starting to see how people who hear from God are being led into a space, like Daniels. Joseph, and Esther. They're being led into a sweaters influencers, where they're actually speaking, God's original design that makes complicated things actually understood our generation, so real Quinn, Sean, let's go into old news. So why don't give people a backdrop because for some people prophetic just even when you say, obviously, it sounds weird, which it's not. So why don't you take the old as far as maybe current people's perspectives of what you seen in where God's going with that in how it's changing culture in a business. Sure, you know, we, we have everything the Old Testament, which is kind of reflexive that lost thirty years of prophetic ministry. A lot of people view, if you hear from God, it's going to be disruptive voice, that comes at, like Charlton Heston, Ergil this was points. God unique to turn this way, as a Christian, we should be anticipating bowsprit lives inside us is going to nudge us, whether we're reading the bible in, we have a life application on the scripture, we have, which is that's, that's one of the ways space or weather were making a decision on, on our in a war. We're gonna have our next business loans, or whatever we, we, we could be nudged by God to the right place at the right time that he designed hit. It says the bible, he prepared us in predestined for works, which means in the regional plan of desire for us in the host fierce job is to reveal what's in the office. And so he's constantly with the voice within us. He's our conscience is inside of our processes speaking to humanity. And I talked to people 'specially visited all time. I don't hear about this one was recently. He's like, you know, I just don't hear about about. Chris, my life is amazing for the last time that you did it active love that was right outside of your own and paid off big. And so I gave my son along daughter Masan Byron all the money for down payment for a house out of his inheritance gets great rhyming married because I felt like God, I always felt like it would change something for help and the daughter was really allows ROY. Around the house and the picture was so tell me what happened the marriage writing civilly got away shoot babies. She wanted to have families Gardner, everything changed their life and everything personality, just by owning houses in. So you think you were enough to make that decision that your strategy giving us money early, which is not normal was you? He goes while no serendipitous did it this. Could you believe that the boy solicitor inside of me nuts through conscience to do this up -solutely actually like a bad thing? It was beat that was God got is inside of me history. I hear God that way. A lot of you do. Hear a lot of you're waiting for the disruptor external voice to interrupt your life versus you. Walk with God is a Christian, and you don't have it. So we're seeing, you know, I consult with visitors entertainment news all the time. I wonder why jobs us to help them digest, if I will watch saying to them, not to speak to them as a prophet to. Kinda counts. Let's, let's listen to govern. Let's, let's look at what you've already heard. Let's physician it has applications and interpretation. So, Sean, why don't you kind of? I love that part of it. Because I really feel like his is profits when you can give a word, but you just gave a word in it can change somebody's life. But for me, I can help somebody here, God's voice not changed the whole dynamics like the difference between giving somebody officiant, teaching them how to fish radically. So how do you do that say was like when you're getting into the entertainment world or the business for like, how the dynamics what does that look like we could be as simple as I was with that Ailsa actress in Asia nation in all of a sudden, they buy out of the context of this person's like the Jennifer has their country wants to with sedan with her little psalmody. It was quite just her bodyguard her in her agent and interpreter in, in set what he needed. She said, I need perks of God loans. The end. Up myself Savall assess will, what do you want me to do? Like, just what, what what's in your heart? What she says? Well that's his powerful as if you hear it. So let's pray together. Yeah. To ask a big question asked, what do you think of me she is? I don't wanna know. I don't want to hear from him that way said now you do hear to change your so she goes, there is. And she's a Presbyterian nominal faith. Not really. She's known for someone compromising sexual seductive. Stop the same time. She's tried to stand her ground Christian in the best way. She your hell so she's feels a little compromise ago. So it's going to be convicted about right? But as she says, Holy Spirit, what he's income, you're thinking she hears for the first time airlines, she hears internally, I love, you, the softest voice near. It was a real voice in. She couldn't have if I gave it to her walkway go. I don't know if I believe, right? It was a simple word. It's just I love you the bible says it up, but she heard it from gone. She heard it from a fog it in changed her whole life like that moment change. Cassim realize how many times she heard that worse alive as she rising before she was saved or not always, so she she was how good was? I think the goal is if you're if you're profit profits to yet, here, author, influencers leaders situations, you know, conflict whatever, but they also release atmosphere lights know Samuel train thousands of profits over two thousand profits are unnamed in the Old Testament in the cave from saying schools are any trained his promise RBIs job was to create the atmosphere to where people could hear in most of the profits retraining Samuel in allies school, according to Jewish tradition had to have a fulltime career. So they actually had to have a job and be affective in their community before they exception to school. So we think, profits as people who are very priestly, their discount wander. Mystics they just wearing conference. And that's how it was modeled in the sixty seventies eighties, a lot of this guys were just circuit writers, who just priest attend meetings with the reality is the Old Testament scriptures out profits were. New counterparts out of. In Antioch in the early church is that they were affected community situations and Solomon, how the Rian had a council of God to be able to deliver deliberate where people come and listen to how he would just share God's perspective on how to rule rain at he would would just come to court. Like people judge Judy. Now, people just go to this courtroom just to be entertained by the voice of God, and how this Wiseman with juristic with. That's how the prophets where the New Testament they had a gift of council and wisdom that helped the complicated things in the heart. Thanks to become. Understood. So I knew I know I knew I know some of you have lots of stories I love stories because they're easy for people to remember was, like another one recently, where somebody heard God for the first time separate from the Ottawa where you set down, whether it was through. I've had Brad Clinton talk about, like smell or touch different. I don't know if you have any things like that, that comes to your mind, it's really fun. Because I think people need to realize it's not just audible. Yes, I talk about time where it's not we're looking for all say this, I, which is parents were married for almost sixty years, which is as as crazy on a very young man. So that Barrett's about. About. They took a lot to go the kids over the cook. They don't need to use words on a findings assault amongst asses chicken read 'em by major instincts, the more you are the longer. You're with someone the less words, you need inside Jackson's understanding, and intimacy about language outside words. Right. With God longer we connector Maureen O'Hara by nature and we're moved for, like, I love the, the bridal horse analogy, somebody rides a horse for years that horses, they'd be told her to go out ago, it becomes instinct for the ride the horse will work, God's countered, are, he wants us to know him that was when people are getting to learn how to hear got they have to understand the goddess visual imagery, that God's transcendent bring transcendence through music, their sound all these days, it's not necessarily direct words. So a recent story was a friend of mine who he was married for a long time. He has wife passed away, and he was talking about, you know, his heart because he was very lonely and all of a sudden. A song that was their love song came on the radio. He asked writing for soccer mice, Lord read permissively know enough. This is okay. And the song that was the love song. I love to came on any had a distinct memory that got spokesper where he remembered her saying, I will love you until we die if diving for you. Please compared to do and he remembered it because of their song. So God came through memory and a song. And there's even scriptural presses for how bad concern using memories. That's one of the ways spacious my motto profit spoke. So when you understand that it's wow, got so multifaceted, his not just trying to direct us by language is trying to get through our heart and change of culture. We are love that story. Man. That's good. Okay. So let's talk about I'm huge on obviously my books about speaking prophetically over lives. Love the you. But you mentioned in previous God has good works for us in aligning ourselves up with what God has to say the kingdom, which. Also translate past Hearns. I've heard his life changing atmosphere because chain our atmosphere, we walking stuff by speaking, what God's doing. You get into some of that know I think we're even wired neurologic. We were made of water and on, at if you, if you do one of the biological tests on rice for you. Speak over one jar rice, speak. Good. Words jar, what rice who speak negative words are rice, you speak in you neglect? And you see over a suit, serger time seven days. What happens that the rice spoke good over this is all schools in America. Do this the rest of these good words over its rivington, beautiful white was a bad words. It gets corrupted green molding, the ones that you neglect. Also this do this at home. Try on it. We're gonna do Mike, Mike kids, public school. It is teaching you that we are neurologically wired for goodness of you, would you bully her or if you? Do they talkers? They self talk, you're actually speaking or something, and you're bringing limitations capsule. God made us this way, and they gave us the words declares. We have the bible to declare all of the good things about the good, nature got decorations keys to Christian faith, that a lot of Christmas, lost the art of decoration. We think we should you know, Paul praises pairs of a church fourteen crasher appraisal of fees of the God, open, give, sphere relation to open, your eyes to see Jesus was wisdom revelation the way he's supposed to be seeing praise over them is declaring it over there, and they are supposed to quote sauce and partner to that, go a vet like we're doing with you in Texas, that you'll be on our earlier the month earlier, the goal is to provide atmosphere, where people start to look at what God is doing in themselves, the world around the income to agreement with it. And sometimes because we're mostly driven creatures, we actually have to. Remind ourselves, stay centered in languages, are that so learning how to make Deckers restrictions and prophetic overselves until we manifest them. That's really important. Yes, I get excited about that. Because I mean do you have a story. I mean I could go and I had tons. I put him in my book just like when you start to do that. And you start to realize that, especially I'm understanding of, like, say, somebody's listening to the show, their baby Christian. They don't even understand decorations or prophetic or anything but just being. We over what God's saying their life. Can you remember like an instance where you started doing that in, like a situation, radically changed my favorite one than its more? Recent is and we have a book called breakthrough prophecies present decorations for breaks during your life in I needed brakes about point where Los Angeles during the recession. There's a writer strike replanting church. We had no finances. We have I had lost all my money. That's like many of student lost. Right. My real estate when south the whole thing, and so ever saw number someone, had give me a word that said, God has a provision for every density birds. There's always a provisional every destiny and they processors for isn't for your destiny in you're gonna live recession for God's academy. Motte Ron and I had already read about cocaine the argument there's spices that I was I wasn't fear, but I was in full faith for everything needed because I was living with current Harka and the. Packs of that trauma of that. So I had to declare my way out of it in scriptures dude on eighteen. I've either got while and resources in like God, I don't have the ability without you. So I declare I have the will be or you to produce the resources needed for the desolate you have are giving your reward. I declared every day until it became real in my heart, because part of decoration is that you have to you have to overcome some places on belief in its security. So there's a lot of inward work that happens on the side soft. It's a Santa, then you start to come into revelations while where you start seeing you declare it, and your creativity starts imagine what it would look like fully resource student or that when I start to see Oma got I'm Bill Johnson. Gimme word if you're going to impact Hollywood, because we do James street. You're gonna need a Hollywood by Tampa Hollywood's budget. Remember about a urine declaring this going that word from Bill came back up like. I have phased that we're in steered billions of dollars switching so we can create Keeble in projects that would impact the whole world. And so, I remember, you know, three or four months, I observed for your into this declaring rod headed at breakthrough that year and there's a lot, of course. Oh breaks here. But I think three years after we had our first major corporate rates are a lot of it wasn't direct finances, but it was resources. There had creativity would believe. I mean, I'm so many creative ideas creative, ingenuity, we had buildings that were provided for our meetings that were created building solutions. So God spoke, an actually not getting a resource. I I'm answering your decoration prayers with a spirit of creativity before getting money because money years to solve problems. But I went to learn how to sell on creativity and relationship and zoom rebound. So when you walk in decoration you, learn who you are who got us your life. Matt negative side. Okay. So let's back up a little bit into that. Some talk about. Like even bringing you people because I know behind the scenes like for like you, and I, we have great people to us. Even in business like for my construction company, the way God is just brought resources in people like for you sometimes people think just finances or like you said, creativity came first, but did you start to see like points of contact or God was bringing you like key people that you needed to further that, like next step, all of a sudden they show? Oh, it's wild. Like when we started our business. Remember, we I had this impression higher yuno Jeremy works for me that Hiram. I knew downgrade a Jeremy ROY ministry, can you work as my personal society five tonight a week? I was a pastor time, and it's a start on business soon. While started ministry outside of our church. Would you consider working towards that with us? He was already working fulltime job for autistic foundation, it, he's brilliant in history. You know what I wanna do the second excited about this? If he did it, there's no reason for him to, because it was like a massive decorate a. And then it was like, not really significant. It's not like it's gonna be remodeled significance to do, but he had a vision of what we're supposed to become. And Jeremy is worth in if we made a few million dollars or Jerry, I'd want Jimmy, folks, because Jeremy, as a strategist project manager driver, and we have several types of people like that God's brought along the way to be as they end up being loyal in France. They train you like I feel Germany's CO out, and he manages us as much as we mad at Trump, he helps us to think about projects remember, I was saying you're going to over saturate. If you release these projects a couple years ago in the same year, there's actually enough room for your voice. They had to sermon is this is why different types of markets in Asia, helped us to come into as a author helped us to come to three different waves of projects ear which would have been unreasonable never greater. Visit. And so, I feel like we've had you know, she he's one of many that contain where she people with God gives to the resources of the right employees. It's the right, people view become greater you become more just because then a lot of people do things logs, but as a keen of, we're supposed to out of community out of out of company out of out of, you know, collected and I always try to build with collective of people that's why we are church. We handed over to our very best friends, a planet with me. And there was now with no drama in the hand off. It actually grew doubled in size doubled finances two three years ago, because we handed off, so because we're already doing and community. I really liked that. You talked about that kingdom idea because, you know thinking about I go back to Ford's. Like I played football when I was younger, this was pre Jesus. But on the similar like it was all about me because I was trying to get a scholarship I played college ball. I did all that. So, honestly, a plane is a team played for me in played like that even in the business if I for years in the Nys is came in the Holy Spirit. Convicted me started showing like I just love like even the fact with this conference that we're about to do with my book, that's about to release all the stuff like I'm a visionary. But I'm not a strategist in, in the Lord's been able to bring people like obviously, my wife people into my life. What I love about this to somebody, I can't take any credit for it. That's what I love about it, because there's, like Nike not be prideful about anything because I can't take credit for it because, like, yeah, I'm up there, speaking argue to write a book or whatever. But that's not that's not me. I think. I think the beauty net is that those are the ROY one when you're independent, and it goes back to the hearing, voices, if you wanna God result, you're going to have to have God process, which as it can't come by your Skilley, retelling, your relational, capital, your abilities, your finances. Those will be used in question, but it's gonna come with got going one step or a lot of passivity producing lifetime. The problem with that, as we see very allot of business kingdom minded people who stand up, or they don't care. They don't trust people. And so they get maybe once that asked their God, given abilities baby got once passed, but it's not a sustainable lifestyle has the body needs the body. We need the community. We made people who will come where we don't we're not the most powerful person or laps all the time. But we share that our God with others and that's really hard on it. I think the wayward teaching the prophetic in hearing boys were teaching from a psychological relational framework, as well as logical framework, so teaching emotion. Intelligence spiritual telling Ida profit come to my church. One time classes and said, I have so much to teach you he was kind of a. And said, hey, this is really a question, but where do you do Christmas? Alex Christmas numbers. Married single is why I'm single and I go last year. Passers house was it your pastor the pastor. Where'd you go to before? I can't remember civil who, who call birthday celebrates asking questions. It's important to caution Burton's, nobody next to who do you call in their birthday, every year is celebrated tickets. Nobody said you are so relational talks sick. You don't have any grounded relationships or family or connects community. I don't trust you. I don't like I'm not trying to me, but I don't trust. We're looking to build the people who already build families in the community or at asset. And that's how the prophetic because the prophetic, Holy Spirit spread counts or concert on comfort. So the prophetic should feel like people who are carrying that aspect of God. It's not the judgement criticism pointing it's wrong. It's actually winning hoop. People are in what is called him to be at who industries are who. Nations are not who they're not in the judgment is Jesus all Jesuit across. So our job is to help people understand who are in their rights kingdom. Okay. That's a weight of prospective. Okay. So on timeframe, if we get closer time, which we might be just tell me give me a signal whatever in will cut off. But I want you brought up a really good points. So I know that there's profits here from God. But you about like, the it's more criticism. It's judgment. The bringing stuff out it in. That's why people some view of prophetic is in they're scared of it. Likes me mentioned earlier. Why so people can understand why is that not New Testament because that's not who was in, how can they differentiate between, let's say somebody goes in accidentally somebody just get a terrible word in walkaway just devastated. Like all my gosh. I'm embarrassed. Why don't you talk about that? Because I think a lot of people experience, that Dan, I think that comes from an Old Testament, Taliban where people in old philologist argument that came from people who had a lack of psychology in the midst of churches where they the, the ministers were allowed to run over everybody in without care of love. Love is the primary goal the New Testament test lead through a few prophets priests kings of people in if those profits didn't hear forgotten God with people, they could get stoned misheard of user agenda that he gets his garden. Came through one for many right? Or couple for many in the New Testament were justified according, Martin Luther nailed these on the door, where events did a cost came from. Junk minister from a process, Mr. say were justified by Bates garbage rains all our own relationship that we don't eat a presale off its leads now. That means that the priests of the profits are there to help build Dacians for us to grow community enjoy identity, but they're not there to establish that what Jesus was already status for us. We also have repentance in the New Testament, it justified Byron face not mid secure about each other's ramifications were Metzer here, about yourselves encourage other people here, forgotten south's, and then profit can happen to the Safeway in that because I don't have to direct you in your life. If I do have a directional work for you have to weigh against like that with all when he's about to go to Rome, aggravates, the profit comes and says, don't go to Rome. They're gonna put you in prison. This is how it will happen in a little bit. Looks at said, I have to run us workout swimming. That's huge because they will testament that would have been a conflict, and the New Testament was all okay. Because almost just five is on faith. Agnes was never knock Alda prop on. But it showed a different model of prophecy supposed to work where each already have a relationship toys spirit. So easier for the second thing is that it doesn't John three sixteen seventeen God's, and Jesus did not come to condemn the world. Victim says that's the holy spirit's job. So we're actually supposed to trust the ho- scared to bring conviction in even prescription pulses kind this valley's people repents these kinds of scriptures were the goal of process, not three judgment conviction condemnation, but the goal process revelations team spirit process, the testimony of Jesus, and the test Jesus, as Jesus showing John, the grind of Kreis completed or way before it happened. So he's shows John what we're supposed to look like what he originally planned to look like at that's for business at when we look at industries, and people were supposed to God's original intention. So does that mean that we don't ever hear something that's negative? No. I've many things are negative, but we can discern things here things, but we have to have a full conversation with God about those things, like I heard out of friend. I heard he was strumming feelings about satin affair. And so what do you want me to do at this? They will tell the old school profits are generation. Are you be? His life level because that wouldn't cause him to turn to God make making even worse and more judgment. So I began a relationship. And so one point where admits meeting we were sitting next. He said is each other. I said, what he wanted to pray for his. I'm just gonna be really honest severe pornography in my life right now on my marriage Mousa Mike, I'm so devastated. You know, frankly, I think it was two months time praying for two months. I saw the life really praying through his playing for me like he thought so lot by God, odd showed somebody and you have the whole time you've been my friend. You didn't pull away from me. You love me as God loves you. He wanted to break, he loves your marriage, and he doesn't let I think this country father's racial line was lost thing. So we prayed into he gets therapy got sixes marriage, but it didn't come because I brought a condemning a victory word came because I was intercessor Fred. So when he could tell me about safe enough to bring it out. He was able to manifest a different result because of that. So it's all. Log before following love. I sports eight ball love like your life depends on an eager desire. Prophecy for following luck. Prophecy is for the sake of God story of love happening now. Love has two sides. It has we recited also hard side. My daughter cries, I go to school, enable lettuce to center school. That's way different than saying. Because Las Vegas is the city of San is going to be destroyed. That is not a New Testament profit word. That's God's never in the whole history of the new test. Mrs Jesus is resurrected at there's never been a time. You can look at Jesuit offices in the fruit of it leading massive salvation assist. Never have. That's good. Okay. So Sean one thing I wanna as we start to wrap up the point of this talk about the two conferences, mainly this imposing coming up on this going to list off. Listen names against listeners kinda understand like this is a event. I'm really excited about going. We're going to be doing some behind the scene interviews, but it to your wife Chris Valentine, John revere. I love John, reviving two twenty years, man. He wrote a book on honor that literally changed my life years ago that was radical Jesus culture upper room. I'm excited. Bob Hassans going to be there. His wife. Here's lice phenomenal. Businesspeople for not now. They're specials seniors. Lance wall now so out of all this is a lot of people. I know you're excited for all of them, obviously, you wouldn't have them all coming, if you weren't what are some highlights for you that you're kind of excited about that. Some of these or I'm gonna be like interviewing city Jacobs about. So her protects us, where world leaders and I think it's sectional is talk about those increasing. But like when you pull it out over, like I relation sorta pullouts stories publicly to our people, it gives people Kurds, that they can come for nations to Lance, while now on a talk to him about carrying preventative Metron, and how hard and good that's been because he's a looks like if you're not for Trump to say soccer, mom and Trump his head of prophetic mandate to do it. If you're Trump Interbike cited by, but if you're not trumpets kind of a weird, like how prophetic people carry those things I body Lauren hassle excited about their messages on business. Bob wrote the book biz. On Danny silk. And it's this changing for business. Remember hearing about speak actually Lawrence. Most profoundly prophetic speakers to influencers are now like she leaves influence or group, in San Diego where I'm the mayor's gonna fall thought political leaders sought church leaders, and she's helped to lead a conversation and say they that's changed the city really honestly, so like to hear her she spoke over other events and it's been profound just kind of like south missiles, you don't notice. She is in south street hits. And Bishop Joseph Darlington has one of my favorite human beings in the world. He carry something that Sony wine skin in the midst of bay around the old regime any carries something with a theologian as a profit as a musician that I think, has boys like is, as underestimated by this generous lost ten years. And he's like he's in seventies. And in heat when he speaks excuse me, literally, I feel like it resonates in the deepest parts of you Incan contained your opinion in second over certain things. Like if you're jaded, or confused about something he brings such deep hope the logically, but also spiritually so all of all excited about the worst teams, just like there's just a knife, or they're going to be amazing like I love her so much for me. That'll be one of my favorite parts. See the dancing the freedom. Cami, she's she's been a common writer in Hollywood for nine years. And she packs out the comedy warehouse becoming storehouse these kinds of places comedy clubs. Choose a sangria, but also in the groundlings for I'm still as eight or nine years. And she does she's moved over to the faith-based arena, too, and she's hysterical. She's so much fun. Chemical over exerting will can't wait to check it out me so all right.

I have a really hard time focusing. So I have all these people around me that helped me stay focused, but I'm excited though. Because God brought like obviously you're part of the book in awe in. I have all these people have written into the book, and it brings such a different dynamic of hearing odd in releasing those words speaking over live undecided about it, because it's it was such a God collective moment. Herbie re stats, why excited? So what we should do a whole show interview under books of your listeners could really here. Okay.

003 Stand Up Comedy Tips from The Nervous Comic
"This is the nervous comic. I'm glad you found me yeah doing back there she won't even hold Your Hand Rate Regina if you're from Regina I am not telling you all coming with candy and flowers and we are going to make up and we're going to fix that comedy intersection tell people you're a stand up comedian is are you funny and I have a different take on that are you funny is a very club or doing a show the audience managers the bar staff ourselves we're all wondering are we funny and hopefully the thing you do your holding hands things are going somewhere and sometimes the date is horrible sometimes yeah audiences for stand up comedy I have a certain idea about them I always think of every audience says a new girlfriend that you have to impress in the as a kid that was probably the only thing I thought I did well and probably the same thing as an adult another thing that always gets asked whenever you're is over the years I've always been told drunk crowds are hard drunk crowds are terrible late show they're drunk oh no the one of the things good and bad question most standups will hate that when you ask them that but as a stand up comedian this is the overall question that hangs in the air when we go to really dating the answer is yes by the time we're done it's a very hard question and it puts US under a lot of pressure but hey that's part of the game bad but I have had three shows that I felt unhappy about I did not connect properly so I'm telling you right now Jonah next time I am what's going to happen they're drunk recently there's been a couple of things that have changed my mind on this philosophy one I was doing the table is just one long episode of dealer no deal longlining contestants might after no deal button that you're on stage and that could be as short as ten to twenty minutes sometimes it's wonderful this like the best first date ever your data's flirty they love this show and it was their few groups of drunk people and there was a crowd that just wouldn't listen and they were very attentive but then there was a couple other people oh who were laughing at everything that I did so after my show little downhearted I went to the bar and the one guy who was laughing at all stuff I was doing came up to me and says inching is whenever I do talk to someone about stand up comedy they say why do you do it well I always wanted to do it I know that sounds cheesy but that's exactly what it is I this guy was also drunk it has nothing to do with being drunk and he loved my show another time the crowd was obvious idiots and I said well people have different ideas of comedy and besides they were drunk and was at that moment that I realized Oh me and my girlfriend we love comedy and you're so funny I don't know what those other people's problems where they should have been listening but they were just talking and being rude and very well and I was getting nervous because some of my stuff is kinda thoughtful stuff when you're drunk sometimes it doesn't always connect I made the decision to try Lee drunk there were loud they were a little rowdy but they were just there to have a good time and to act came on before me and they did not do all sorts of cheers and they love me they were my people and I love them and ever since then I've never had people get quiet because sometimes you don't read them properly I often stand in the back of the room and I try to read the crowd is a drunk route I actually don't have problems with drunk routes that much or loud crowds it's the quiet crowds reach them at the drunk level which I do have some experience with so I went up there and I threw all my drunk material atom I did remarried matt look at the menu eat at home contestant did only because the no deal tonight for the house getting dressed up in my boot jacket sometimes I look and I make generalizations it's a young crowd no problem I can square a bit I can talk about Forbidden Topic Wchs Sex I don't know why people there are six billion people on the planet sex is a good thing it's a natural thing that had happened of course when it comes I just wish the kitchen was open later I I can't I'm not psychic even though I do like it can show I'm not psychic and sometimes I make a mistake but I watch and see what are people are laughing at and making my own thing I'm talking about is quite a bit I don't know why people are so sticky about it but I've gone on when there's younger crowds and I've been a little dirty and they go we they also live in my single days for you a I jumped out of her seat she was like yeah it was the funniest thing I've seen in a long time and by the way that show was in grand prairie and he starts off hey guys by applause who likes women with big breasts and of course many men will gene shows and after that they go come you didn't swear why haven't you little dirtier and I'm like oh I don't know what I'm doing the crowds when I'm working with another comedian usually I'll help my buddy out because I'm usually the first guy on and when my buddy goes on still trust me bullying I said Yeah Yeah grand prairie the only things to do here is to drink have sex and go bowling actually the third I because you're watching him do his show while I'm watching you react to show I call it the third I what's in my head that Oh herod drunk crowd and it's a blanket thing that doesn't always apply so for all you budding comedians out there that's one of the things you'll have to deal with it's not so much fun shefty's formed sleep it just made it up it's not copyrighted and it is really fun to sit in the back of the room and watch you react to my friend doing his jokes and it was the crowd were clapping and this one guy was not just clapping he was whooping and he was obviously with his girlfriend thought for sure things are going to blow up and yeah but I'll bring candy for you to don't worry don't worry don't worry breath speaking of audiences I know everybody also asked about heckler in time or this comedian and he was pretty blue and he was talking you know the men and women and he was there was this couple right in front of me that I could see their reaction the look and I see a bunch of older people and go okay I'll have to clean it up a better than you know be a little sharper and I've been on stage and I do real quick a heckler but it's not the only one sometimes somebody just says something out of the blue and maybe they're trying didn't liked him and they're quiet and I can tell that you know they might be a little offended or a little out of place and and other times balances it out he says okay ladies your turn just an it comes to sex is size important well is girlfriend somebody's just commenting on your show and they're not really heckling they don't want to make you look bad they're adding and if they're funny if they're getting a laugh I will roll with that I will talk to them directly I will write down their bit the crime is going to be like Oh see you later but he kind of noticed her and he said something and she seemed fine and everything was fine and my friend continued with his show well of course he I I do you handle a heckler and what do you do to get around these I know the typical response you'll see for hecklers you'll see the interesting he comes off after set and a heckler had yelled out his punchline at the end of the show and he was mad it basically ruined the whole job yeah director show you have a microphone and sometimes I'll just get louder and I won't talk to them at all now sometimes joe like they're just constantly throwing some stupid thing at you and this happened to a friend of mine sort of almost happened to a friend of mine and it's really from him so it's also good thing to have a heckler in the other well no sooner had those words left my mouth then this guy walks up to my friend and says excuse me career a heckler commenting throughout my act and every time he did it I think nine times out of ten I got a great last that's probably part of the reason I love it there's always something new there's always something changing you always have to be dynamic writing new things writing now sometimes of course you've got a heckler that just ruins a show in the nail come up to you after say I really helped prize I might really and then they left we didn't go bowling with them with I looked at mark and I said did that coaches trivialized sex I I don't get it is that like a three point and they don't mind blue material and they're great crowd and I love them they were talking to us being the headliner Mr Marc Trinidad actually great guy and the rare occasion that I haven't driven which is always a treat and I was going to saskatoon and buddy picks me up right for me night in grand prairie drunk had sex and I just managed to roll a few games good for you grand prairie you've got a great sense of humor I love you the House and I thought that was great and we're Chitchat and we're just getting Outta town and he's from Ontario where you know there's a lot more you know uh-huh found a gas station so we turned off filled up with gas and then on our way back the same thing happens I don't know how awed loves that and you just have to be careful I think in my previous podcast part of my show you at the doors he goes hey hey right ice off the air you do your show was other women around number Oh a lot of comedians do not have licenses so if you do and you're half decently funny you'll get hired and if these are positives this will get you work because surprisingly for an occupation where people have to drive and we drive hours to go to in a movie a comedian and he gets a heckler and he'll just destroy him gale insult him that is a tool to handle people in gas stations and whatnot we got outside of Edmonton and he goes I'm running out of gas is there a gas station nearby the prairies man Asian over there how's it going Well it's blinking now I'm like great I might have to push the car to the gas station but we got there another time stories I get stories from the road again for any upcoming comedians. If you have a driver's license and a nice car apologize and here's a beer I felt so bad I hope you can forgive me in any walk away and I looked at my friend red water which is just outside of Edmonton fill up for gas at this
