The Green Green Grass of Home

"Hi I'm Chris. Kepler and welcome to disease happened to you. I'm an actor voice actor audiobook narrator and writer. I love telling and sharing stories about the strange experiences my friends and I have while doing mundane things like grocery shopping. That's why this podcast features funny stories from fantastic writers about our daily anomalies a micro audio book about life and befuddle men. Just for you. Our story this week is from. Randy's blog on blogs spot from my little book and here is the Green Green Grass of home. Hate it always have. The fact is that I am allergic to cut grass really not enough to not have to do the job but it does. Era Tate. Me Beyond a mild allergy that sets one often a negative direction the realization. That one is doing the dumbest and most boring job in the world is probably the real reason for the feelings. I state this opinion with apologies to toll collectors and those who read patents for living. Of course I also offer my apologies to my brother in California and Arizona. Who have no idea what I'm talking about? The portion of the Earth on which you live is not afflicted with such items when all your lakes are dry. You certainly don't have to worry about a lawn. Let me help you understand. A lawn is a patch of green on the ground that surrounds a suburban house for reasons that are not apparent to me the peak altitude of that lively greenness must be kip somewhere under a height of three inches or the neighbors will become agitated. What cropper you grown over there fred. Lynn Alfalfa I wish Alpha Alpha would make a lot more sense. Did you know that ALFALFA has the highest feeding value of all common? Hey Crops and that I can look things up in wikipedia. Since this height is a requirement one needs to mow the lawn this entails passing a noisy smelly energy wasting and dangerous machine over every square inch of surface which is not occupied by flowers or Shrub that once made has painstakingly manicured to exact specifications that you the more operator do not understand but woe be unto the more operator who confuses these things with the lawn. The law needing mowing consists of grass. This is a low growing plant. That has a key distinction existing. Nowhere else in the plant. Kingdom it suicidal. It is always in need of attention so that it can continue its life water and fertilizer and pesticides and TLC often in the form of psychological. Counseling must be constantly applied less the grass wither and die. This is indirect weeds. Which are any plants not classified as grass flowers trees or shrubs? Weeds are survivors and thrive in spite of attempts to kill them. Hardy native plants every bit as Green as grass but somehow unacceptable floor. Racism is what it really is. Dandelions should be classified as pretty little flowers but they are misrepresented as the scourge of the suburbs because they usually choose to grow in spaces reserved for lawns. As the places to thrive and raise their family violets are weeds. Maple trees are wheat. And when you get right down to it. Giant sequoias are weeds. Unless they happen to fit into your garden of shrubberies like Ed Blythe Old Mansion in Rhode Island seriously. They're redwoods used as garden elements in Rhode Island. But that's a different story. My hatred of lawn mowing extends backwards in time to the day when my proud father determined that I had reached the age where I was responsible enough to do the mowing. I think I was twenty four nor maybe a little younger dad wouldn't get a powered rotary mower too dangerous. He said I wholeheartedly agree. I replied this job should only be done by trained professionals but dad didn't buy it instead he bought a real lawnmower. The push kind fully human powered. I managed to push that thing around our postage stamp size lawn without too much trouble. Even though I complained incessantly and I learned that leading the stuff grow too long actually made more work not less. Unfortunately we moved to a new yet unfinished house another long store. You won't be hearing today shortly after we moved into the trailer behind the uninhabitable behemoth. After the sighting went on dead determined that the rocky dirt field needed to be turned into a lawn and to his good fortune. There was a young boy to toil on this task while he was at work. The anointed area to become a lawn was huge. The House was on a double lot and soon there was a whole lot of Reagan going on eventually one pile of small rocks was carted away. A pile of mid-size rocks was made into the only stone fence on stone fence road and a few huge rocks. Stay right where they were for aesthetic reasons. The lawn was seated around them all was well except for one large dip in the front yard where the densely treed side yard drain to the street. Contrary to my sensibilities dad decided that the Small Canyon did not add character and needed to be filled. The huge truck dumped the soil near the top of the Canyon. Did I say soil? Dad Got robbed. It was all sand undeterred. Dad moved the wheelbarrow to the side of the pile and put a long handled shovel in my hands. I think he said Ding boy GIG so I dug and dumped doug and dumped and Doug and dump some more I never would've finished but onto consecutive weekends dead pitched in and finished off the pile grumbly about someone less energetic than himself as he worked the pile was gone. The seat went down and always will until it rained. Then I had to shovel the lawn back into place from the street where it ended up if I thought dumping wheelbarrows was a pain. The first time around my feeling was doubled as I had to. Horse the wheelbarrow up the hill to fill the canyon wants more. Additionally Dad's workload had intensified so he was not available to finish the job but I finally got it done then. The Lawn sloughed down again after another heavy rain so I found myself shoveling once more. How many times I going to have to do this? I wondered homer aired when he recorded the tale of Sisyphus. It was not a huge boulder. He pushed up the hill. It was wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow of sand. Only be washed back down each time. He thought he was finished. It essentially the grass took hold. And the wash outs stopped. That's when dad finally acquiesced to get a power mower I was thinking that I'd finally have a real more like most of my friends. Maybe even a writer but dad came home with the oddest power mower I ever saw. I didn't realize that they made real taipower mowers and it looked like these slab deb concoction that it was a push mower with a small guest engine. Welded to it at least heavy thing. Power the wheels as well as the real looking at the contraption. I realized that there was another car to be played. That just might get me out of mowing powers a scary thing and should be respected. Dan this is an impressive machine. And I'm happy you have provided it but you know how I love nature and when you get right down to it I really don't WanNA shred a toad. Alas now with this powerful machine sooner or later it will happen. And I just don't know if I could bear shredding towed you on the other hand are made of sterner stuff. So you should know fine said Dad. I couldn't believe my ears that it worked but then he added. But you won't be using the car. What no no car. I wouldn't want you to take the chance that you'd run over a bunny damn. I hadn't seen the car. Bunny Gamut coming. I had to give him credit even though as a teen was completely sure that everyone his generation was stupid. Maybe just got lucky regardless I pulled the starting cord and headed off over the greenery toads. Beware so why piloting the contraption. I had plenty of time to think about how much I hated mowing the lawn as I trimmed. That sloping expensive green over and over and over again one's mind drifts while doing a dumb and boring job. I even wondered how the activity came to be in the first place in a nutshell who came up with this crap. My extensive research has yielded the discovery of a manuscript dated Juno fifteen eleven detailing a conversation in the halls of Palazzo Vecchio when it was new of Oh in the Republika Florence. Here's the translation Niccolo. I'm afraid this rising middle class would create problems. They seem to be aspirational and have some means. I'm not sure what to do to keep them from interfering with my divine rights to power and wealth. He s sire. This is a problem however I believe there is a solution. And what might that be? Use their aspirations against them. Sire what do you mean? Since they covered the trappings of royalty. You need only to instill them with the desire to have the basis of them go on provide them with an ideal and they will waste their time and capital pursuing it. You have a staff of gardeners do not but of course you have been in my gardens the fine shrub so wonderful expenses of grass. The finest anywhere. Don't you think certainly sire they are fabulous and now you must use them. Bury the middle class in my garden. In a manner of speaking sire you will divert them from anything of consequence by merely holding up your lawn as the pinnacle of royalty and the most excellent symbol of privilege. And how do I do that? Indirectly in discreetly sire. What monarch would you say has gardens almost as impressive as your own? Why Do Komo Dana? Of course but not nearly as magnificent as my own precisely all you need to do is publicly inform. The Duke and the commodores will fall in line aspiring to be as the royals. What must I say to the Duke? Simply this sire. My grass is greener than yours. That can possibly work. They can't possibly be such couch sheep. Oh Sire you give them far too much credit. They will acquiesce. I can see legions of them. Not only futilely striving for your level of excellence but competing with each other. He pondered and then smiled. I'll do it so much benefit for such a small bit of. Guile you know Mac. You should try to book. Perhaps my prince perhaps but leave out the part about the lawn. It's just too good to give away as you wish. Thanks so much for listening. If you enjoyed the story let me know and share it with your friends. Follow me at Kris K. K. Aria on twitter or Kris K.

I'm still like who the effort they talking about after the angriest or to feel like I'm a terrible person for even having these thoughts. I tell myself it wasn't that bad. It's not like he beat us. Anyway, I would love mantra to get me through this day and to have in my back pocket. Come father day. All right. One of my favorite sayings is that the green green grass on the other side of the fence is fertilized with bullshit when people die shovels come out for all the bullshit. We pile on top of their grapes for the neglected child. They might as well hit you in the face at that. Pook shovel it is just cruel. Now, let's gently tease these spaghetti strands apart number one parenting is hard for sure. But your experience is different. It is different. You had a crappy dad who failed? You full stop you deserve better. He gets no grace there. Number two. It is easier to be a grandparent than apparent. I say this lovingly with all my children piled in bed with my mom in the next room right now. As a grandparent US zero responsibility, which makes it way harder to screw up. Seriously. It is a low low bar to be a good grandparent show up twice a year, bring toys or candy smile. Listen, hugs leave. That's it. Honestly in most scenarios, you don't even have to be good. You just have to be not terrible, not unpleasant. Number three alcoholics are deceitful as part of the disease. The had the drinking and surround themselves with the neighbors demand. Everyone ignore the big drunk elephants in the room. Number four. This is the hard one I work with several recovering alcoholics. All of whom have screwed up their children in various ways the lengths to which they will go to really make amends with their children. It's a on ding to me. Truly astounding. Doesn't sound like you're dead. Did this with you? So this is why I doubt that he truly changed. Sobering up in changing. It's not same thing. If he had changed. He would have started with you, family therapy and real outsized efforts to fix things. It's easy to be terrific, step grandparent. Again, you don't even have to form a real connection with anyone. I doubt anyone got more of him than you. Did. They just got a better show the person reference that the funeral. He never really existed. Those people didn't really know him. They didn't have a real connection to him. He never failed them because he was never let them come close enough. He never put himself in a position where he could fail them. And if these people aren't going to hold him accountable. It doesn't sound like they didn't his lifetime than they cannot hold you accountable for the feelings of loss. His neglect created. Number five. If your dad was abusive, toxic or main during your childhood has never taken responsibility for how he hurt you. And the legacy of neglect continues to harm you to this day. You owe him and his memory nothing folks on yourself in which you need no-guilt allowed. Please please I say this lovingly if you aren't in therapy now get into therapy immediately and deal with damage. This man did to you the feelings you described in your Email are precisely what they're 'pests are four touching on the root of your anger and working with it until you are undisrupted consider a support group like alanon. Meet other people who carry similar burdens. It's okay. Not to be okay. You aren't responsible for the damage he caused, but you still need to fix it. Back to the mantra in this moments of anger. If you feel like others got something he denied you remind yourself. It's the same elephant different show, the green green grass on the other side of that Bence was fertilize bullshit. It doesn't get easier. But with time and therapy, you will become harder to disrupt. Coats. Loved and you are winning. And you are definitely winning at life.

South Carolina Pro Wrestling Report Special Edition-Scenic City Invitational Review with Bruce Mitchell from PWTorch

"And. Hey, it's bollocking live from the CDC city invitational. I am joined an honored to be joined by Mr. Bruce mischief from pro wrestling torch, Bruce. How're you doing man to see and file? I've had two great weekends road between wanna wile. The Dane able Luther as George triggers national hall of fame and all that goes on that weekend and then sin city invitational here, right? Outside of Chattanooga, Tennessee. This has been tonight was a great show. Yes. Stuff going on a lot of talented wrestlers just put together and a cool fan base to watch it with to vary distinctly different events. Right? Both well done in their own way. Yeah. You were telling me earlier that in these two weekends, you've seen to really distinctly different styles wrestling. I don't think people understand Carolina's mid west kind of the deep south. It's it's very, very different. It is different in the places that this brings together, you know the best of the region and more than that. So you had you had the monster and you can put me on the PC Oban lag now? Yeah, by far and you had that kind of big grown man stuff you had the, you had joy Lynch who won the tournament the king of the moon salts, but moon salt that was more than just something that was pretty that really? Yeah. Well, you know, you had the emotion. Shen of. The Carney's and and the presentation. You had a real mix of of good stuff and and fans respecting it, and it wasn't a, you know, it wasn't a smaller smart Aleck crowd. It wasn't a. That's right. Oh, you know, this is awesome crowded. That was they knew what they're watching. The characters and the rustling God over it was I enjoyed it. And I tell you what that the match into the semi-finals with a PC and Joey went was as good as I've seen in a long time. I thought I thought the booking of that match was absolutely incredible because the cancer, yeah, Joey Lynch being. So you know, being the local guy, he can't. He made it to the finals last year, one of the favorites coming in this year and he's facing this monster who might be the hottest name on the independent scene right now. And just if you get, I guess it's going to be on power bomb TV. I mean, that's a must watch match. I agree. And it was it was the horror movie Trump of, yes, you gotta kill them Auster and select move salt and just really freaky. Monster setup reminiscent some of the undertaker nod is that not as rougher and have we killed the monster? Have we hit anoth-. Moussaka kill the most havoc and finally did it. And I thought it was just really constructed match. Welcome by both competitors, and it is one of those stories that you wanted to see. Got a winner loser, but you want to see PC again for sure. And Joey Lynch came out of it looking like a star, right, good night. So there was a lot of bait on Twitter. What do you think the final count on the number of moon sauce was? I heard eleven eight hundred. Nine hundred. Seven I I was I was eight. Okay. But I mean, I'm not gonna say the numbers guy on this because I was also like mad and you sit there and hear that moon salt. Barely sit up Howard as it was so much more dramatic. Did it sound silly in a way? Just talk through it, but the drama of it and this and and the beauty and the and the impact of those moon salts and then just Carla, what plays, you know, it's bad. Hammer movies is still around the old universal Frankenstein Dracula movies because he's white out of that. He's he's, you know, he's got something. You know, he, he's got a character already. That's fully borne. I mean, I know people been on that and I was kind of slow on it, but I'm. I was watching the videos, but I'm like this. This could take anywhere. Right? And that's the coal just a second ago. Young man came Justice from your negative woods. Walk by how do you think he had a good show in this week? It's been my, you know. You start going, you know, you run your promotion. You see the God, you see the guy putting the ring up and then you see the guy referee some than we see the guy. In canes, in canes case maybe where Matt. I mean, you know, you know, maybe mirrow mass, get his ass kicked in the, you see him and you see them get more experienced and get things under his belt and just. It's really, he's got a lot of tower. He's got. He's got places to grow and to go. And this is moving out of conference on and he had he had two very good appearances tonight. He's and he's got that mix of Brazilian jujitsu, right? It's martial arts and then wrestling a us, and he's a good brat punk too. So it's good to see. And then you know, it's always fun to like always fun to know who the mom is into watch are. So mama mama. Justice is trip, so. Oh, yeah, we were watching her on and she was. She was getting into it man, and it was very now. I'll say this thing as far as maturity goes, I give a lot of credit 'cause I went over my arms around his mom, the beginning of the match pointing like and didn't blink an eye. Yeah, I was like Gifty. That's right. That's all right. That's right. That's right. I always like coming to this because you know people in our region, the Carolinas, I'm very, it's. Always good to get introduced to new to new wrestlers too from the from the midwest because there's so much wrestling, you could hardly watch all of it. Who is somebody that maybe you weren't familiar with that leaving this weekend, you're going to go and the and the guys at the w. torture like this is the night. This is some. This guy is in some ways green green grass, but Ivy. Cross cross. I'm sorry. I cross I cross is. Potential is a prospect. I mean that in the real sense of agai crossed someone to look at now and go, I saw him win. Yes, green and his basics, but a great work, a great authority to them. And then real big and athletic he can. He can do some spectacular things. Now he just needs to. He needs to fill in all the blanks, that that guy, that's that's the one the first one, even though I wouldn't see was the best competitor tonight or or anything like that last two nights, but it was just the one where you go if he puts in the work and and and in the ring and gets the right the right instruction and all that. He could see him at the top of the business. He was he was one of the guys and you're not, you know, talk privately about some of the things with wrestling and how wrestlers look. He's the guy when he walks in the room, turn your head right side, who who is this guy, and then. You know, I thought when I saw him, I've seen guys like the tall muscular Gaza star power, and they come in and you're like, but he has outstanding afla. He has. He can. He can already do some things where you like, wow, he's got the wild factor, but now it's like you gotta have the foundation to build the foundation. But he young too. So that's the guy was looking at porn. Yeah. He's been wrestling like two years and to to be in the scenic city invitational two years in. That's, that's. That's pretty happy as well. Bruce. I know you got some friends and family here. That's right. Hey, so let everybody know most of our listeners, you know, we talk about the torch all time at work and they go to read your work. I know you just did a lot of work there at the hall of fame in Iowa did a lot of audio and writing, but where can people go to to find your work and get the PW torch Kellen all do Bruce Mitchell show a lot about this event. Probably tomorrow sometimes if I if I ever make it home right degrees where but I'm follow me an already put up a lot of pictures, put up some more from the event tonight. Follow me at Mitchell PW torch. You can and then Peter torch dot com and PW torch dot com. Slash kgo VIP fourteen years weekly podcast. The second the longest wrestling weekly podcast there is and the second, any kind of podcast. And of course still right every week. Lots to read lots of those. It's a great bargain. So if you interested in going to w. Torch dot com. Look for the button that says, go VIP, but appreciate you gossip port all the time. Let's go. I forgot about this. You've been doing a lot of traveling. You got one. You got a big trip coming up in about a month to Secaucus Tevi feeling about star cat. That's going to be an amazing weekend. It is cholera Thompson made a little little trip here last night. And are you serious? Yeah. So Conroy came all my goodness. I am saw. I should've you down good. And, and you know, I just think that's real. K. justices mom? Yeah, work. Yeah, trying to work. Yeah. So, but yeah, I mean. It's it's already looking to be a major success along with all in. And then all in being three agents and professional wrestling with leverage was starpower right having this weekend and all these podcasts always says, come together and frankly way Keller and I have never done a show together with Dave Meltzer Bryan Alvarez. So that was very big thing too much. I think a lot of people can enjoy that too. So I think that's it. Fight TV dot com. Slash star cast can get. You can people like me that aren't going to be able to make the trip to Chicago, but that's going to be great. But man, what? A what a great, I agree. If you get the fans next year, if you get the chance to come out to the SEI it is. It's an event like no other there. I mean, there's just it's almost like a family here, like family reunion for. Yeah. And also you talk about seeing different rustler's and you know, and I did. I mean, I, I've always wanted to this for years and years and years. And I brought my one of my many, many Duke shirts as. And got my picture taken with the drums, blue Duke, the dumpster Droese the and he hasn't made an appearance in eight years. Right? But I mean, so I was that was fun. But I mean, you you see people from around the country who love wrestling and no it and talk about all kinds of things, and they have a lot of fun. Now, there was one unfortunate part of this weekend and it goes along with it. It wasn't official thing. The scenic city prom. I'm still having to wash my eyes from what walking into that room and saying, I can't even describe it something of something out of blue velvet or you need to get checkout. Now I didn't laws being broken, but they should make some new try. I try to keep this show, you know PG thirteen? Yes, but you should go check out Nick gauges tweets from about the. Oh, a Nick gage.

"Ocean plastic smart loves problems IBM let's put smart to work visit. IBM DOT COM slash smart to learn more. Hey this is jad radio hey this is radio lab is supported by IBM problems inspire IBM to push the world forward that's why so many people work with IBM on everything from city traffic Listening to radio radio from WNYC extreme popularity of American country Western music over the last fifty or sixty years with aboriginal. Australians you mean Hank Williams would be recognizable to somebody somewhere in West Era Someplace and book club Don Williams has actually gone to Zimbabwe where he has built a soccer stadium with forty thousand people twice in a row and the crazy thing is like eleven years ago we did a show called pop music which I think it was initially Like about like wire certain things from weird places from Tennessee to Zimbabwe say or then from to Afghanistan she get a song and it moves strangely around the world is popular for now I just wonder like what exactly are they hearing I have asked Grenadian Solutions Trinidadians of making a state choosen Bobbins love Dolly Parton travel at Marriott hotels dot com a member of Mariot Bond Voi- your no not for others and when we were stumbling about this question way back when it was a thought that we heard I from Mova Sky Aaron a Fox he is catchy like why do certain your arms get stuck in your head right but I think it also ended up being more interestingly about why do certain songs seemed to sort of just slip across borders stories like as an stories in the lyrics I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison and I went to pick her up in the rain but aborigines are actually run over by train thousands actually that's not what Professor Fox's saying he says ignore the details and listen for the larger story which has to do with Eh cowboys pick up but it has spread he says to the most unusual places of some examples of that and there are quite a few include the Hey I'm Jaboomer I'm Robert Krulwich radio and we have been spending a Lotta time dancing and professor of musicology at Columbia University in New York and the Damn Country Western lead Guitar Player Country Not that rock and roll too deep down Austrailia absolutely

dancing you know the Dalai thing going on in another and other operational their user an UN both of those those breath moving with migration and with regret your lonesome for something and the thing you're missing is deal hometown the Green Green Grass four act get to the station in a pickup truck she got run over by a damn no train that doesn't sound very aboriginal to me you know how many it's a couple of examples you can think of I missed the fire may miss the cricket though where do you start the first hit country song was a nostalgic reverie existed except in heads and the music started just been so if people in Los Angeles and in Chicago heard country in their minds around me along for something simpler something to you that's left behind and I realized that I was only dreaming what would be the best to more than fifty percent urban dwellers in other words country music really exploded and this is not an accident when most people no longer lived in the country Zeke is born when the country becomes static idea and so in America anyway suddenly there was dreamscapes of country places that no longer in these people in these faraway places don't speak English what are they hearing will it's important to understand English and the real enthusiasts around the world are English speakers however one explanation for just as logical that people who move from the country to the city in Asia in Africa Australia might have exactly the same experience these songs are Sung in English popularity elsewhere is that even if you don't speak English the message is literally in the music itself there is grammar here in the vocal ization the twenty seven and that happens to be the moment if you look at the US census as he'll tell you when the United States crosses the threshold from more than fifty percent agrarian and rural dwellers singers this is a very normal country western thing they actually make croaky sound that is very distinctive Oh land we Jn been Russian Chinese American aboriginal Australian tiny of why do you like country music and the first answer is virtually always something along the lines of its instruments instruments seemed to be crying steel guitar is the sixers out of the country because it's recognizes iconic of crying human voice Aaron and Adam I hear that train to come in and around the country music genre we normally associate with Kentucky Nashville West Virginia can fill the venue with a band playing Dolly Parton Song everybody will know all the words in God isn't that rocky top and most universally evolve Don Williams home the green grass hearing Fox's you can boil much of this music down to just this feeling you look and lift Oklahoma party if John Williams were to go to Dar es Salaam Zanzibar or two key it's called the crying

A. H. I. R. I'm who is he a fourth grade and takes us inside closes the gate behind the scene changes suddenly it's a garden birds chirping and then sit up go on to a Professor Fox has a book on this subject real country stops and he points to this old fountain in the courtyard and he says something new jeep in jeep start laughing and the this is the fountain where Ahmad's ear I remember this is the Song Sung to me but it did sound familiar so screen that comes right in right here young Afghans the time especially young Afghan he had a concert all the poison girls would come to his concerts wearing new clothes and not only all the as good as Amazon and this is where the story gets a lot darker really have coded anti government lyrics in them and then he would have other lyrics about how freedoms the most important thing so what did the government doodle they ban songs from the radio they start throwing him in jail regularly but even when he gets out of jail he refuses to play any of the Communist Party of but he plays plenty of his own shows in fact after one concert he meets this beautiful woman named Fahira the way she tells the story he taps her on the shoulder he says hey his hat he can I talk to you I the women wearing skirts and Jane Fonda haircuts the men are wearing sideburns and they're doing their James Dean just what people are wearing it's that there's the sense of playing accordion here you know forty girls forty euros now they did call cazenove for reason but was that okay because in Afghan as a year would come out publicly praising the government and he always refused to do it anything political he wouldn't play the show and some of his songs especially later songs started to act nineteen seventy-three the rush and start to move it and the new president that they put in he doesn't really like Ahmed say you're at all why well it was really in their interest fearless of Sun but the foreign growth the also were in love with let me just play one little

filling up with people fifty hundred two hundred they're inside the house they're outside but everybody else tells me he was shot in the head probably by government operatives and the news spreads through all the neighborhoods in town so you have Tajiks Pashtuns whose backs they're all getting up used to play his accordion plays accordion dislike me saying that Forty girls lying down there and he was going to do to you that's all I want to tell you to be careful but I'm in so you're in his wife they don't do anything they don't they don't leave why he says oh we'll go after the baby I

Gun Dog Training: Subtle Changes Make a Big Difference | Ep #23

"Everybody welcome back podcast episode twenty three Michael Jordan comes to mind, Rene, or twenty three this might be maybe get longer. But I don't know that it has to be super long. And I don't know that we one of our things we've done these podcasts is we're not trying to I well, I guess we are trying to I think a lot of our content stuff goes gets along. You know, we, we do seminars or an hour. Plus, we do DVD's the used to be an hour, when we redid them. They turned into four hours. I mean, there's the lengthy and so that's okay because I do think there's a ton of information, but I think it can be overwhelming. So our hope with podcasts, are there -tunities where we can kind of do just shorter stuff thought random thought stuff, we've built them off of. Questions that we've received we're actually going to be doing some pretty interesting projects coming up little early announce them right now but got some really cool things that we're working on that. I think are all valuable ways of sharing information, but I've gotten into a habit recently and part of this. I write for the badger sportsman we do article for them, there by by monthly magazine. We've we work with groups like gun dog North American white, tail and some of these different media outlets in so and as we continue to grow some of that stuff I've gotten into habit of using my phone under notes. I've just got a kind of random thoughts random stuff that comes up. Sometimes it comes up during my training. Sometimes it comes up on driving my truck. Whatever it is. And I wish I had done this a long time ago because I always have weird random thoughts that come up, and then I think I'll remember it. I wanna write an article about it. Or our remember it, I'm gonna do. Video about it with such such dog. And then I forget them. So I've gotten into this habit of trying to just jot notes down. One of them. I did this weekend. Was the note reads subtle changes make a big difference. And the my note behind that was the bumper. And so I that's what we're going to talk about in just literally got a message at eight fifteen it's eight thirty four right now. I get a lot of messages questions, Facebook, Instagram stuff. Just got one on Facebook read it to you says you're, you're he'll work. Video reminded me he'll work video. He's referring to is. That's most of those posted success, we posted at six days ago, on Facebook on YouTube, and Facebook, so YouTube has a of stuff. It's got our Hugh work video. It also has it's called he'll work stopping dog from pulling. And that's what we titled it, it was a it was a clip that we filmed at our last workshop Kyle Middleton. Kyle and Cassie Middleton were a couple from down southern Wisconsin were there with their dog prime and we. Prime came really nice dog, but he had a tendency to pull in Tennessee to be out in front, which you just can't have because you lose control, especially if you're gonna our goal is ultimately, we wanna work, the dogs off lead completely. We don't want him on a leash. It gets in the way. So this guy made a comment that you're Hugh work video, which is what we think he's talking about reminded me of my five year old lab, and it clicked with the constant tension on the lead that I have had. So this video shows there was just constant pressure and correction, lots of tap tap tap tap tap. Tap tap. I'm not big on tap. Tap tap. Tap tap when it doesn't do a damn thing for you. I want a one time correction to get a result and then have zero correction and then until it's necessary, so I'm zero or ten I always say ten gets the change ten varies like ten could be this today and in a lot less pressure tomorrow, but ten. The change zero is where I want everything else to be no pressure whatsoever. So anyway, it says a question though, I have is how does it work? When the environment is uncontrollable. I e distractions dogs people's cars, etc. So my note was subtle changes make a big difference. My note had to do with the bumper. So I was out with Cody, we just recorded a podcast kind of giving a, a summation of what we're doing with Cody go back a new series that we're doing on YouTube handling a dog teaching dog teaching Cody in particular, how we're gonna handle her back rights and lefts. So one of the things I did this weekend. Didn't film it because it really wasn't. We weren't working on back, but I worked was working around extending lines and I was actually working on sending out of a little dog out that we have little little waterfall hut thing that we that she's gonna hunt out of. So I walked out with dummy, launcher and the dummy launcher if you've ever used a dummy. Launcher. It's got a canvas type dummy. That's wrapped. It's like I don't know nylon thing that's wrapped around it. It's got a cylinder inside of it may the steel that sides over your little shaft of your launcher. You put your blanket you fire it and boom, launches a bumper. So gives you distance it adds some sound some gunfire type zone. So what I did was I set her in, in the little dog hut. I walked out about fifty yards. I launched that dummy real high in the air real nice lob in fell down fell down in area that she's comfortable picking up dummies. I mean she picked a lot of them up there before. It's just this time I launched it with a dummy launcher. No big deal, didn't think it was a big deal at all. No, Cody is new back to us. I trained her last year center home when she was about a about a year and a half, she turned to this weekend had a little birthday party for yesterday. So I haven't had her back for five six months now and I did not use that. Dummy launcher with her before I sent her home just decided I was gonna use it now, whatever. So I did. Center out on it, it was a long line relatively long hundred twenty five yards about. It was a mode trail. It ran right to took a right to this area. Little bit of cover picked up lots of dummies before lots of bumpers there before. Center, she took the line, really strong. She ran down, she just hunted and hunted and hunted in hunted. And I, I, I stopped her and gave her hunt whistle. And we've been working on that little hunting area try to pin her down Holden areas. What I'm trying to get her to do get into spot, and then holder in that area. She hunted and hunted onto couldn't find it. Turn finally gave up came back, and I was frustrated thinking, what a way to start this out. Right. So I go down there, I can see it. I mean it's green green grass, but I can literally see it. So I get back into that area. She was right in the area so get her in that area lost lost. Find it find it Wissel all this stuff nothing nothing nothing running over it. So I literally picked it up and teased her with it, and through it she, she ran right over the top of it and kept hunting kept hunting. And so I went, what is the matter here in at that point, it would have been very easy to be upset. Would you know? The amount of patients, you need is is is high right? So I was I was frustrated so but I realized something is clearly wrong. She knew it was there like she's didn't pick it up. So I grabbed it picked it up put it in her mouth, I told her to hold. She's been holed condition. Put it in her mouth. I said hold I backed up three or four feet. I recalled her to me. She brought to me she delivered. I turned around I pitched it. She sat solid not steady. No break islander a center, she ran out picked it up turned around. Brought it back to deliver it to hand just like she had done it a million times before. So I brought it back to her little hot. I did that probably two or three times I brought her back to her little hut hundred twenty five years away. I went back fifty yards from her. I took the dummy lingerie shot at exact same spot back to a little hut. I liked her out. She ran right down to it. Picked it up. Brought it back to me. No problem whatsoever. So what, what was the issue? The issue was. I changed a bumper. She had never picked that bumper up. It is different. It looks different if feels different two different material different shape. I just read about it just read about another guy. I read a blog of his Barton Ramsey, southern kennels guy. I read a blog he did some field trial things a lot of guys trials, I don't trials but he was at a trial of some, some type and he had a dog. That was freshly imported. I don't remember that exact details of it, but it was freshly import. I think it'd only been in the states for a couple of weeks and he took it to a trial and he competed with it. And they sent it out on retrieve. Really early on in this trial that he was in and the dog ran to the area. It was a marked retrieve the dog ran right to the area. Took a great line. Ran right over the dummy in and continued to hunt looking for something else, clearly and sit didn't pick it up. Didn't bring it back, and he and he said his reasoning was, it was a certain type of bumper that, that dog never seen before in the UK, and it didn't it didn't know what to do with it. And so you got to remember dog see stuff all the time. In about that aren't necessarily retrieves. And we don't want them picking up everything we wanna picking up certain things so that I had read about that. I read that blog, like, I don't know Friday, maybe, and this was Saturday that was training her so really kinda was fresh in my mind. And I went, man. It's that simple. It's simply just changing the bumper, and it's similar, but it's not the same and by just getting her used to it and getting comfortable with it not a problem should just, just clicked. Now, this guy's question, you know, he's got this five year old dog. And it clicked with him that he's putting constant tension on the lead. And so he made an adjustment. Seems to be working one of the things we, we made in that video of some real sharp corrections, one of the things that we did with, with Kyle. And I've been doing it with some of my dogs. And it's been affective and just a little thing. I picked up from another guy. A trainer. Mike tallies is name. But he takes this. He takes us lead new wraps, it around the back of his legs, brings it back up to his right. Hip, so dogs and left hand side brings the lead around the back legs brings it up to the right hip and holds it. I hold it on my bag in a certain spot, the perfect length. And so every time I walk if the dog is too far ahead. I feel it on the back of my boot just a field thing. But so we'd talked with Kyle about doing that. He started doing that, and then it's slowing down all these things. All these little things that you can do to help get better. He'll work in. I do think he'll work is, is really critical. So this guy made an adjustment seems we working the question, though, is, how does it work in an environment? That's uncontrollable e distractions dogs cars people. It won't. You have to understand that little changes, subtle little changes make humongous differences, two dogs. So a lot of times I get messages from people where their dogs doing really well at the house, or in the yard or in their backyard or wherever, and they train their lot, and they've got they mastered it, and they get really well, they do really, well there, then they move and they go to a new location in the wheels fall off, and it's not because they don't understand it. It's because they don't understand it there. And so we just really have to get in this habit of recognizing and realizing when there are little changes that happen distractions are changes. The environment is change. If there's another dog this guy saying dogs while he also said, the environment is uncontrollable. I don't believe any any environment is uncontrollable. It's whether or not you maintain control in the environment, so you can take dogs too distracted area. Ios, you better not take them off lead if they're not under one hundred percent control, and they're, they're not, they're not able or capable of resisting that temptation, so it's incremental, it's you just have to you have to create these uncontrolled areas in a controlled way, very, very small steps. So he brings up distractions that could be anything. I mean that could be kids that can be rabbits, that can be all sorts of stuff dogs is clear so working with dogs, I don't work young dogs in large groups and expect them to be able to focus. I may I may my process might be get really good with the dog by itself. And then take one of my older dogs Taylor. Maybe importing her out and have your sit at remote, remote, sit at a distance and she can just observe all she's gonna to lay down and watch to not going to be past. She's not going to create an issue, not gonna make noise. And this little dog will have to work with me and focus on me instead of her. And as he as at little dog gets better at that. I can get closer and closer and closer, very it's, it's that's another dog, but controlled the situation and I slowly get closer and closer to. Adding more and more to the to the temptation part of it. But maintaining that control people in cars. Cars is not something on experiment, by, like, we don't go cars until we know we've got a ton of control. With all other circumstances in all of their surroundings and our situation, so it's just incremental eight z doesn't work with the dog ate a B does be to see does CD does eventually, you can get to see. So the point my point with that note was probably going to write something about it. But the, the smallest little changes can make humongous differences and make really dramatic impacts on your dog success ability to find success and fail. And so next time you're doing something in the dog's not doing it. Well, struggling with it, remember this and kind of reverse engineer, the situation and say, what, what's, what's the reason instead of getting pissed off about it? I mean, I got pretty mad at Cody 'cause she blatantly was not making retrieve, and that damn dog and all the frustration and the anger, and everything, come out and. With her. If you're watching if we got this YouTube series with called, Cody go back. You'll learn real quick, that she's just sensitive little thing, she's very, very sensitive. She's she in. It's not in a bad way. I don't mind it at all. But if you put it in the hands of someone with, with a relatively short temper someone who likes to push their little dogs around, you won't get much out her, and you won't like her. I'm not interested in pushing her on a little dog. I would like to see how do we get them to do what we want with us as opposed to making them. I want to ask them and have them have them do it with me. So because once I recognize ninety nine or more percent of the time when the dog doesn't succeed, it's my fault and so. Ask yourself next time the dog doesn't succeed, whose fault wasn't whose fault was it? Elliott has made Elliot's made some some, some things recently where she's become. I think it's just a matter of she's become too confident she's big. She's come to think she doesn't do much on, and she's become very bold. And I don't mind that because she's real easy to get back checked into place without, I don't need to put a lot of pressure on her. But she's become so confident in I've become so lax on my. Being real precise. I've allowed her a little more freedom, probably than what she can handle. And so she makes assumptions in the field and I've complicated drills to the point where I don't have necessarily the ability to control it one hundred percent too long distance too many things in between us physically too many things in between us mentally, for the dog that could be changing cover that could be the, you can't see me through the brush, that could be all different things. But I have realized I've pushed her to the point where we've gotten some pretty challenging setups and because of that. And because of things were going so well up until this point, I just think she's made some assumptions and she doesn't think she does wrong. And, and now I've gone back and I'm doing some very simple things and trick almost kind of tricky here a little bit. But simple setups. But doing things unorthodox not the way we normally would do them to see if she is willing to listen to me, and do the thing that doesn't seem like what's normal rather than doing what's normal, and going through the motions, in example is. A t imagine the letter t so there's a fence in the back and she's sitting in the middle of that fence where the of the top of the T would be the fence and the line from the dog the dog sits in the middle of it, and I sit in line, so with the dog so we make the shape of T me the dog and then the cross left. And right would be the fence. I put a bumper on the right hand corner. I put a bumper in the left hand corner of the fence. It's, it's a square fence. So in those two corners, there's bumpers. So a right hand, caste would be ninety degree turn for Mita her, she'd run that, that line fence pick that dummy left hand would be the other way. So I take dummy and I put one in each corner, and I left them there for a while, like during the session they'd been there for a while. We've been away from this area for a while. We come back. So there's really long memories. She's done. Multiple things and other dogs are done stuff, so there she. Knows she knows bumpers. They're but does your member? I don't know if she does not then I take a bumper. And I throw it. Halfway between me and one of those corners. So it's at, like forty five degrees angle. So it's halfway. And so she, she knows the bumpers there. And so I throw one to my left, let's say and I give her a stop whistle. Hand up left hand and I'm gonna send her out get her out to the left and I wanted to run to that corner. But she knows there's a bumper that just threw it and its should have to come forward and left at a forty five degree angle to get it. She doesn't gingy. Maybe doesn't remember that there's one in that corner. So I handle her to the left as she comes running out to that bumper towards me. Forty five degrees angle, the pick that bumper. And I told her no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. And I put it back on the fence because what do you mean? It's right there. I know it's right there. I can see it. You just threw it. Eyeliner to the left again. She does the same thing. No, no, no, no, no. What are you doing put it back? And so now she's looking at me in her by languages changed. And she goes. Boy, what do you want me to do here? We'll now we're going back to basics when I give you a left hand cast you turn to the right you're you turn to that direction in go ninety degrees and you turn and run. And so she did that and I use the fence as my guide and she ran the fence line. And you could tell she's running the fence line going, it's not out here and all of a sudden, she sees it and goes, oh my God. It is here. So that's like this little wake up moment for her to say instead of me assuming I know where it is. Every time I should probably just follow what he says, when he says, go left, it's ninety degrees when he says go right? It's ninety degrees when he says go back it's one hundred eighty degrees. No matter what I think, where the bumper really is. And so those are all these things that, that's one thing that Ellie we're just going backwards. We're just gonna take steps backwards and we're gonna go on, we're gonna fix these little things, and then we'll go back into the. Field. And I bet you she'll be much crisper. She'll be much sharper. She'll perform better. So. That is that got off topic. But the point of this one was be aware of small subtle changes that you do in your training that throat can throw the dog off in and I'm not saying don't challenge the dogs because I do think you have to the yet challenge them to the point where they do make some stakes. They don't make mistakes. They're not gonna learn anything so we have to challenge them, but we can't go so far challenging them that they're lost. You gotta go just a little bit. It's like taking a little bite off of it. A little bit off a little bite off. Don't try to eat the whole thing. So that's it. That was number twenty three that was Michael Jordan for you guys. Thank you for listening. We appreciate your help. We appreciate your support with this do me a favor. If you would subscribe to the podcast, if you wanna check out the go back Cody series, or any of our other. I mean, we got tone of stuff on our YouTube or Facebook, Instagram stuff. It's all at dog bone hunter. Please check those out. Thank you for supporting us. We really appreciate it. We're gonna continue to do these. Getting momentum. And that's what we're after. So it's a process. It's just like training a dog growing. This is going to be just a slow process. So thanks again, and we will talk with these.

I don't think I want to be flashy but I definitely love color now. It doesn't look like it today. I have kind of green nine and my sign stay. Curious is kind of a meeting for meaning I green over here but it's comer but I do believe her said all kinds of different shades of Milanov and purple lavender. Oh just teals. Although Shen cars we got just mentioned it bill slow put some reiner born warriors brighter. Yes but that's the difference in nipple all different and the okay. We got some more love for Mary. Thank Mary yes. And it's one of those things that I grew up with her. I lived on a farm and farm very vivid. Everything's Green Green Grass blue-sky and red cow and blacks cows. And and it. Just I guess kind of permeated my being to wall to wear bright colours when I put on a muted color and you got it in red great nine I love it. Wearing muted colors actually brings me down in the thinks drooping that color. I know vibrant so it just makes me lineup if you will trying to get the right color. It's it's not matching your shirt okay. It's not us pig. Oh No it like all right. I'm going back to two -til. Oh Marian is so talented with her electric knowledge. But I was rocking your yesterday. Design that Mug. Oh my God you can do anything. You perfect wonderful programs software. That will do just about anything that stand on your head right married. A that's interesting. I'm glad I'm glad we're talking about that today. Because you're I love to teach brought to teach how I can empower view to create your own stuff because if you have to pay somebody say nothing against you know designers or graphic artistry thing sometimes. I even have to go there because you know to enter print but if you can design what you see in your head if you feel something and actually make it happen on the screen. It was really good. I love to teach people how to do that. So mating and I were creating some products that we'd like to share with our community and one of the most beautiful Shaw. The other one was among and and I'll show you my mugged not today. It's so you're at Nacchio parts on the side. I love it but imagine it. Euro could think about a design and then actually put it on something like a t shirt or mob or or a poster a blanket. It doesn't matter what it is. Wouldn't that be fun as so? That's where I really get enjoying that. From what I do for a living and that is teaching people technology so I thought why not let Lady Liu. Watch me as I am. Up Lady so one of the things that I've found over the years is that not one technology handles it. You have to sometimes go and mix and match so we could go over here and get the right shape and size and color of the background and that we could go over here and get some right image that we could nip Then we can take that imagine over here and make it you know a different color and and then we can put it all together and then hit the button. That says hey. Let's sure yes wasn't that fun. I enjoyed it tremendously. I can't wait to order my up and I'm not a coffee drinker but I'll drink water out of my cup. I'm not Brad might suggest when Nazi yes it more. I feel our audience of aftermath. Sure Marianne is leader as you can tell. I'm sure and a trainer and a teacher and a lover of people and she has a mastermind that meets every week on. It's usually evening at eight thirty nine. And it's so very affordable we down there and there's I think sometimes there's that many people and we can all get on zoom at the same time and see each other and interact with each other. It's like they're right here in my living room with me that's the beauty of zoom and that we're using today you can. Have your friends visit you anytime you want? Just my logging into zoom. That's the easy way to use aren't out with that. One is zoom dot. Us and it's a free apathy and you can buy the paid version two and it gives you a lot longer time but it also gives you a longer more people men but the free one is great for just the everyday person and I love it. I learned it. I had the aren't I am living here in the country by myself. Marian and I have always loved visits. Just armed zoom. Sometimes every day we're together and it feels so that I don't know if anybody else has that `isolation challenge that I kind of have up here and I don't mean arm isolated but sometimes I feel I am because I'm so far away from you. It's a vibration that you can get through this computer fatigue. The president-elect fee and you can talk to them and they bounce things are of fill this masterminds back to that. She teaches different things each time. Right now right now. We're running about email marketing. That's it has great and I missed it because my computer was down our patch up because I want to learn about all that kind of food and being technology challenge. I turn to Marion from is tough. And she's always feared he knows what in Albuquerque who the person doesn't understand trainers are so advanced in their thinking and in their training that they don't know how to come back down to the level of the and Marion fat handle. So if you're looking for a mastermind face reusing go and gap training and make new friends. We do have meetings from time to time where we all get together. In fact most of us were together couple of weekends ago for an alive training. Marian didn't use them so it's so much fun if you can join us Marian tell them the details about patriae on okay. Sure sure if you go to patriots DOT com. I can put up in the chat room. If you patriots dot com slash natural curiosity. You'll go to the page. Which shows you the different levels that you can join but the one that lady talking about is the mastermind and Like she said we will every single week at eight o'clock central time on Tuesday nights. And I tell you I I say girls and I don't know if people believe that I would do it for free even if no one paid me but of course on I did have to charge for it because it takes a lot of time and I put a lot of effort into digging up the training and organizing everybody and then I always allowed my mastermind efforts to come to my classes. My physical classes at no extra charge. So if you're in Houston Gary or sometimes people drive down here from Dallas. Just join That's that's another plus a my opinion. It's a plus to get together. I one yeah and have you a hint of how much it costs and just over six dollars a week and you. What else can you find for six dollars a week? It would give this training when she trains every week on something and then we share among us and a lot of people have great ideas. That thank you need. I have a challenge.

A History of the Jews in 23 Million Objects

"The this is is to be one. Vitelle Aviv review. Hello, and welcome to this very special episode of the Tel Aviv review. It's special because it's the first episode of more than five hundred that I'm not recording sitting down in our studio or in someone's office. I'm actually walking down the aisles of gigantic. Archival vivo, the institute for jiffy surge in New York City together with Dr Stephanie Halpern, the acting director of the archive and Leo Greenbaum and assessing archivist and Boone archives here at Uber as well. Hello to you, too. Hello. So we need to start with a bit of introduction about what is it here in the evil archive and you know what is really the mandate of ego, and it's? Sure. So Eva was started in nineteen twenty five in Vilna, which was then Poland and the idea really was to be able to study Yiddish history language, literature, and culture in a systematic way. And part of that was collecting the stuff of, of every day Jewish life of folklore of the history of the customs. So that's the way you've oh, started out, and it, it remained in Poland in Vilna until World War, Two when it's life in eastern, Europe was cut short, by the holocaust, many of its holdings were looted by the Nazis. And some of them did make their way to New York, and so Ye Vilnis prewar holdings, constitute a small section small about the normal. It's still enormous. It's over a million pages worth of archival documents. But, you know today, the archives has twenty three million records and. Over four hundred thousand books in Yvo documents many other things as well. It is many other things as well. So we have paintings, we have objects. We have. Collection of underwear from the lower is, so it's under political as an political aspect in the collection. So would you say that, anything that is historical and Jewish finds its way to the vault. Yeah, I was scope is broad. We, we specialize in eastern central Europe. But with, with we'd cover with oriental Jewish material, we've material and Israel, and it's mandatory Palestine. So it covers entire well, basically of Jewish life, such an enormous collection make its way from Europe to merica on the, the woman people really struggling to save the lines. So, like I said the small amount that we still have from our pre war holdings, made their way, sort of innovative different ways but much of it was saved by the paper brigade. Right. A group of, of people who were able to, to smuggle materials, and hide them in different places in the Vilna. Ghetto. The building happened to be the original Yvo building happened to be right outside the Vilna ghetto. And when Eva was established in nineteen forty in New York knowing that, you know, the future of Yvo in Vilna was limited, they started actively collecting as much as possible, and we still actively collect today. We get what Leo a couple of collections in probably. A week is we get enough of two collections. A day, sometimes we'll one hundred twenty I should say hundred twenty donations of various size. Vigils presbyter not solicit another program to collect. We use seven-day passed. So the very incites for a single object, two thousands of pages of documents. So that's a very wide scope. How do people know to come to well, besides obvious website situation, they know from literature and, you know, I guess we could improve publicity that's what you're helping with, you know. So an I in my experience, explain to people, where I work is, how is it not spread over? I dunno mid-size archives around the way, I think that you've oh for a very long time was the only place and it still is the only place to send materials like this people who knew about ego in Vilna, and people who knew about what he was doing, you know, here in New York, just in the media years after the war knew that this was the place to send anything that had to do with eastern European. Jewish life. I'm an ego sent you know they did studies. They had many, many publications for a long time research. So you've was getting the stuff out there for people for Jews to read to learn about themselves to learn about their culture and was able to raise Yiddish culture history and language and literature to a different place. Those we're we were literally, the first Fasano the first gun ization to collect materials on the holocaust because is evil based was was based in eastern Europe, people who most of whom did not survive. We're collecting documents manage to hide as Dr Houghton mentioned match. Highlights holocaust documents Bertini, the holocaust and says, in, of course, we were committing more extensive collection of testimonies. Those are some Nazi documents have you been able to salvage things from eastern Europe, after the war is still working process, and in terms of. Absolutely. And we have a large scale digitisation project, which were embarking upon to process, digitize and reunite our pre were holding so there was a large amount of material, that was recently discovered in Lithuania that actually, you know, had come from Yvo. So the Edward blank Yvo they'll not online collections project. It's, it's, it's a name we're about halfway through. It's a seven year about six and a half million dollar project. So for the first time ever, since before the war, all of prewar holdings, which are still in existence will leave reunited virtually and so anyone anywhere in the world can just go online and see sometimes document that maybe you've oh, here in New York had four pages of, but, you know, another two pages were were found recently in Lithuania. And now it's the full record that people bring stuff over all the time, do you ever turn anyone away? Very than somebody, something yesterday. For instance, of -pedia we I, I had another place dealer, because we have, so so that's dilemmas because of space wise I was going to mention because Mr. as the Jewish aspect that the boondock labor movement was founded eighteen ninety-nine is a central clearinghouse was based in Switzerland because the parties in eastern Europe, and especially in Sarah's empires, actually were not legal. So much of the material is here. Now that's pertains part, polish Russia, diversionary parties. So with started collecting since then, an American labor movement. So we have this non-jewish aspect in our collection as well. Okay. Let's stop looking at some of the of the artifacts that you've got in what had not, not all of them what you'd expect to find in an. And I'll show you some of my favorite and I think many of them are actually, thanks to Leo, that they're that they're here in our, so I'm going to show them some of my favorite Leo. If you have any. Yeah, we're only in, in what we call record group one, a one, the Arden object collection, and we have everything here ritual, objects, but also just a whole button collection. So let's see. So this is a love these here. These are have you ever seen anything like this a lot. It's a the. A small glass Cup Nathalie. And there are in this box, you can see there about twenty or twenty five of them, and these actually would have been heated up there called bunkers, they would have been heated up and placed along the back in the arms and the legs of person men. The idea was to draw out the toxins from your skin. And I think that it's something that's actually popular now again, but people on the lower side, would have gone and to have these bunkers placed on them to drought their illness or you know, make them feel better, and we have a few sets of bunkers, but this, this one that I pulled for you is one of my favorites because they're still wrapped in the newspaper that they came in, when they came to evoke a nineteen seventy nine so while the bunkers are from probably the nineteen ten or nineteen twenties. The paper themselves is also this historic artifacts, so we know we can date when they actually came into the. Someone told about giving Bunka books of bunkers to only one we have about. But it is because again, you know, oftentimes when you think of Jewish life, and Jewish culture, you think only of the Schule or, you know, the rituals the holidays, but really Jewish life everyday life. And there's so much you can learn from these objects that you wouldn't otherwise be exposed to. Let's see what else let me close. We owes I like to call this Leo's button box rightly oh, you love collecting. You love collecting buttons. This is the one with the Hebrew actors union. Pins all show those. Yeah. Yeah. Is a box of different pins that we have here again, you know. Some of these, I wish I could wear you know jacket now. But this particular box is filled with morning pins, not pins, you wear in the morning, but that you would wear to a funeral and they all have the pictures, the date of death for a variety of Yiddish actors, they were put out by the Hebrew actors union, which was the first theatrical union in existence. And some of them say, we mourn, the loss of, of this actor and the, the funerals of Yiddish actors and writers and cultural figures was really a big deal for Jews here. From nineteen twelve nineteen twelve. Yeah. We have some from nineteen. Oh, nine Jacob Gordon, who was one of the great shredders the, the first Schrader, playwright actually, to have his work translated onto Broadway in nineteen. Oh, six. So anyway, the these pins would have been given out to members of the Hebrew, actors union, who would wear them at the funeral of, you know of these writers and actors that says, Nixon ruining this letter there, there is I don't know how that made its way into the morning pin box. But it was stuck it in the right. Yeah. Morning, the American Republic. Right. Right. Yeah. So, you know, and I don't know thirty thousand thirty five thousand people could attend some of these Jacob Adler, had about thirty five thousand people at his funeral. He was one of the grease yet. Great Yiddish stars through the go-to will fishery receive the this was the puzzled by the Hebrew, actors union. They still have a believer, building them one blood from Saint marks place. But they had to clean out the building, basically. So they look for this was the logical place to price preserve this sturdy that may be still material. They're inside the ticky of doing a museum, but has not materialized with substantial very substantial collection. Some of it isn't another room. Component includes plays and by radical information about actors. Yeah. Music does. Yeah. Yeah. And we have here Yvo the most extensive collection of theater. Material, I would say, thousands and thousands of posters, many of them, actually are prewar it, you've Avila had, what was called the esta, Ruckle Kamensko, Yiddish theater museum collection and use theaters from all over the world. So from South America America, we have also films them by American tourists. When they were visiting the old country in the thirty say these films are unique. There's not that much material so has survived. So have. Films like that, by silent, but still quite unique and of the these are just extras, but the vast collection of recordings along kinds of Jewish music, mostly, it is Hebrew, gun to'real, you name it about fifty thousand pieces, and our sound archives. Tell this is the place to go and many of them are not in commercials. You can't get them anywhere else. Let me show, you one more piece from the section the you'll you'll see out good. Yeah. Hardly anyone ever gets to see this. This piece on the bottom shelf here. Yeah. I got it. Oh. Leona. Explain what I don't know I like to see the label actually, the Essen, Abraham who is not disposed editor of the longest lasting literary magazine suco, the future, which lasted over a century. This is. This is. Him in the flesh. It's almost him in the message another custom, it was guess I is about, as I know, but it was a has been dominated creating it's Easter, the customer would suppose maybe not a European custom an about America thing, America's well, that's on the issue. But we have a number of these death masks is, and it was really done oftentimes so that portrait's or busts could be made after a person's death. So often you find these death masks of notable individuals or public figures. So as. Account with let's say doesn't more. That's frequent Jewish custom generally speaking. So when you, you know you open up the box, and you see just just embodied head, you know, and you can, you can even see if you look closely you can see the wrinkles around the eyes and I don't know if you if you see on the side here, but the skin is sort of falling back loose, and that, that is clear, you know, that he's lying on his back that this has been made after his death. Yeah. You can even see around the is the, the GAAS, you know, that would have been put there. So this is, you know, this is a very unique piece here. Yeah. All right. So let's. Always fun to take these things out. But the most important aspect is putting it back so that it can be found again. Yeah. So record group to seven that's how we were able to keep to keep track of everything because we give it a record group record group to seven is the, the papers of the Jewish community of Salonica. Greece was very large Jewish population. Not in eastern Europe in. No. But it's, it's something to Jomon that goes beyond. Actually, the papers are largely in, in Latino, so we have, you know, papers here in twelve or more languages, basically any language that Jews would have would have spoken greatest hard to sort of say, only eastern Europe because eastern European Jews spread out everywhere. And so two just limited to countries in history. Lease video yet just had near-monopoly of jewelry making in Yemen so collection of that, too. Just in China to his European Julius. Yeah. So the Jewish community in Salonika was, thriving community until about nineteen seventeen. When there is this, this great fire at that sort of destroyed the infrastructure of the community itself, and some Jews left because of that. And then in the early nineteen twenty s with sort of Greek nationalism growing, there were anti semitic laws that were enacted that, you know, 'cause juice to, to also move from Greece. And then, of course when the Nazis come in, in nineteen forty conditions are, are, are, you know, worsen and ninety eight percent about of the juice of, of Salonika are murdered in Auschwitz are deported and murdered announcements. So there were twenty one register books that documented the community of, of Salonica Jewish community of Salonica written in Latino and they're only three surviving ones, and they are here. Yvo. So you can see here. This is a, it's a large heavy book that, you know, the, the spine is, is this, this book covers the period, nineteen seventeen to nineteen forty one and few open it up backwards and you open it up. You see that it has the names and ages and other information about individuals, the Jews of Salonika here, and it's like I said, it's, it's all written in, in Latino someone's research into the roots of the family from Greece would find may. You know if if they happen to be in here. But yes, we get people all the time who are here to do family history and, and Jeannie genealogical research, we have about fifteen hundred Leo lawns, Mitch often collections, maybe even more. And that's another big source of, of family history. You know, these immigrant. They came from. Many of them have closed down. Somebody exists on internet only, but they usually does besides social function that issuance function. And this has been supplanted by insurance companies, so they were century burial society, but something they provide insurance functions as well. And they were collecting money to collect money flow for, for Israel later, on the dose of the hometowns via the United Jewish. He joined distribution committed other and. Have extensive portion of in Iverson. Well, incidentally, the lantern Trafton you can always find cemetery plot records in there because a lot of times, they would sell, you know, sell a plot in a much larger group of, of their, their lines, so you could be buried together. Okay. One more thing here. Hertzel's hertzel's theater. Hertzel's diary uses up up here owned the Inskeep. Remember the folder? Remember the folder, number good. That was going to put this. Which one? Well, since given collection since giving a catch against give it is was was a leading poet survived. The war catcher guilty was another poet who actually I'd only survive the war about. Airplane accident later on. So they would instrumental what you mentioned the paper, the gate, some. Well, there was no leadership that will call eggs in there and so much material demands three evil here by various and sundry way. So that two components one component is material, which is pretty holocaust someone immaterial belong to our library there. Also 'cause Hsun library, Soviet squawk, which keep by when pollen was attack dogfight Vilnius for about a year or so they threw in Italy speaking, sort of a lot of Jewish material from other institutes. So we have a mug things died. It came to us different source chief his family, but that are very well, the materials, the second opponents records of the villa ghetto not generic Jewish records posters various things there including handmade posters, and Sunday survive. There's a book about it. I can give you free pamphlet about it. They were either Saporta sort of buried in different locations and Porsche was hidden by sympathizer outs sympathize outside ghetto women on. She might who's Simba juicy was active in the Russian movement. There's a whole book about in French in effect so they were different bunkers in there about the city and, you know, a lot of times these materials, would, you know, the paper would have to put it on their person to get in out to smuggle it out. And so, you know, they're their their, their lives every time they, you know, they try to save a document or to rapid Horace crawl around their torso. You know, it was really, it's a remarkable thing. You know that they did. So this theater Hertzel diary can say I can never the so this handwriting. It's actually for the most part, written and pencil on these very small. It's a tiny diary. And it was from eighteen eighty to eighteen eighty seven I believe he kept us so really before theater Hertzel is it's hurtful. This is just on the cusp of, of really starting to formulate some of his ideas. And you know, part of what we do here is not just keep the materials, not just house them, but we also have to make sure that they're preserved properly, so you can see here with the Hertzel diary, that there are pages that have been mended by different conservators. So here on this page, for instance, the corner has been ripped off and age and being aware, Nick things earlier moldy, and so they're cleaning and kept in it's been kept intact. And you can see it's been put on this particular pages input on a backing so that it can be kept intact, even longer. And now with our digitisation efforts, you know, this will be preserved for in digital form for, for many, many years. That came from different tools to the other of artifacts in the collection. Yeah. Pretty were component give various sources. And this, I believe was purchased by a relative of Hertzel before the War, I believe in my correct. Yes, I'm not sure about that. But I think what you means by different sources that it is part of egos, pre were holding, but it, it didn't necessarily 'cause sowing the some of the Soviets material into the evil. And this was that I've been gliding strewn library, and there was also a society for at lighteners. What was called translated into English hotter. Translate English precisely so, which Sevilla's of was called Judaism of Lithuania, not for nothing because they were number of culture institute, cultural, institutions, their major constitutions. So when the Soviets game they just poured everything that will building. And now, those are institutions on exist in fed DeShaun was here and visited as there were some successes in the family net states. Shall we? Go upstairs to the seven to seven. Okay. Now we'll put it away later. Okay. This I'm going to put away though, because that we have to climb. Don't forget, your notebook here or you want to feel. The car. We're gonna take care. Okay. I'm always forgetting Mendel folk and Leo's always finding it. So Leonova where everything is in this archive, including mine. Oh fuck. Yeah. So we're now on the seventh floor of our sax on the seventh floor holds many of our art pieces and thousands and thousands and thousands of posters from the ish theatre from different territorial collections from we have wall newspapers here. Also from the trade union, seeing pronuncia the initials in English, and they were take Bronner is not communist. So some of these posters that's the collection and they're only needed. No. Sponge. We do have Spanish of war collection, which includes reddish materials. There was a Jewish brigade company from Poland primarily Archie from France. Paul Joe's, we have their bulletin here, which is fairly rare, but it's been published. But no. Our purchaser, now, all different languages, Hebrew, polish Russian, Japanese Vietnamese, Shawna me him. We'll have in Chinese Cuba oil. Mary. Yeah. Okay. So you're lucky to be here today on this particular day we had a bit of a small crisis last week in, we were forced to move around some of our materials in the stacks. But because of that we have something that's amazing that very few people get to see that's out that we, we had to pull out. So I'll bring you back here. It's of a Trine that was made for more Schwartz. More shorts was alright meter actors. Yeah you know what I'm talking about. And it has at paper Michelle, they sort of look like shrunken heads almost of every character from you'll Chacao, which he put on nineteen thirty three was a it was a huge production. There were something like thirty or more of different voltages, but other is servicing. It was himself a great novelist. Joshua singer. So this is something that, that never get CNN. You know, you can see that the hair and the, the, the different masks that were warn, you know, jewelry of the costume, so. So show you a few things from shoe other things from the seventh floor. So we have this painting, which when you when you open it up. It looks to be just the painting of, of a man, a stately looking gentlemen, with a tie and glasses. But if you turn into the back. You see that it's actually. Almost. Maybe it says it is it is. Yeah. So you see that it's actually painted on the back a piece of, of Torres girl. So say in court was the twelfth chancellor of Germany. He was of Austrian. Yes of Austria. He was the chancellor for two days only before the on Schloss. He was Nazi. And so this, you know, is just another way to desecrate Jewish life, and Jewish culture, I think this is the only one of these that. Objects here. But I think the only one I've seen here. I've seen other things like that, but not. How did find it's well this. I know we have some nut should've got some. We got some of his stuff from soldiers who served in American army, and they pick the stuff lying loose after after the war, you know, so. Of I think got them, not to not too long ago of someone who was in the army, and, you know, they're came in addition to his Benach yours and the knife that he used that the army issued knife. There's also pins and insignia of various loaded guns. Stuff to you can buy stuff on EBay, of course including photographs. No, not our policy to do that. Mostly done by anything policies to take things very early. We bought anything to accepting don't think people can get from a thank you letter which can use for tax deduction services. So this is going up statism sorry this. Yeah. This is I think, you know, very precious. Yep. This document that we have here. They're all of our documents very freshest this, this thing. This is new. I didn't see, but this is a book of New Year's greetings that all of the children who were in the lodge, ghetto school system, made to recount, ski, who was the head of the union. Rod now the blood. For russia. Shana free rush on the nineteen forty one and from Caskey was, in many ways, very controversial figure. He was. He was horrible. He but he also created many social programs in the ghetto. And so it happened just so happens. The let's go had the one of the largest school systems Bill with her. The children's Dacian nuts demand that the children, the ported only so-called productive workers states Gretchen, get shrinking. Depart, the elderly people, and people who could not physically work, so essentially become a labor camp. That's happened to get us through including Morrisseau, so this book, which is has a wouldn't cover and it's leather bounce. It contains the signatures of the almost fifteen thousand students and teachers who were part of the lodge, ghetto schools and honing savant about two hundred of thousand. Yeah. So, you know, every single signature in here is sort of the last remaining. Piece of this child life this, this of names of names. Yep. And you can see they're numbered men. They're in a variety of languages, Yiddish polish and as you can see here. So this is actually a very, it's a beautiful painting of sun said, in these, you know, green green grass. Right. This is from school, number nine Leo G wanna 'cause this one happens in polish. So if she skewed the juice learners judgy were, thank you for the good you down. We wish you Mr President he was called president. This is as of skill the of the Jewish Yudin rat is Jewish council of jail, but saw those they should labor work and lie, relived love, we'll get a lot of for long. Log she should long long years. So this is like they last long a long time. You know what I mean full of these greetings, you know that. Thank you to our leader for doing all of these things, and these paintings, do these remarkable objects that you've just turned me ever go in display. I mean if someone wants to see them we do, we have exhibitions here of many of our pieces on, we often lend things to other museums. So, yeah, I mean, the our purpose here Yvo now is not only to collect, but because collect collecting without having someone used that is kind of worthless till we have about five thousand researchers ever. A year. Come and, and use our materials we have an open access policy. We tried to fulfil every research requests that we can because again, does no good in sitting on our cable box. Right. People have to use these materials right about the history, you know what can tell me about the digitization process of talking about millions upon millions of documents. And other folks, I before anything's digitized we have to have some kind of control over, intellectual and physical. So oftentimes, we will, you know, reprocess the collection, which takes time. I did actually goes every, every page goes through conservation to make sure that the materials can be handled. And then it goes to our physical, physical materials can be handled it goes to our processing archivists who will, you know, go through every piece with them in the proper folders. Right. A finding a four it so that the materials can be found by the researchers. And then it gets sent to be digitized to be scanned. And then there's a whole process on the back end of, of what happens after digitisation. But eventually these materials are made available online through a search portal, where are you type in a type of search term, and it will show you every instance, every document that, that satisfies that search term so really is going to revolutionize the way to access our material who? To do. Sounds like a never ending process. It is a never ending process especially if we keep getting to collections in every week or every day. But that's that's what we have to do. Our duty is to make these materials available to researchers to preserve them for the next generation to us. So you can't stop this process stuff and they'll Grynbaum thank you very much for joining me today of this tour of the Yugo. Thanks very much.

"The morning morning, everyone we are still waiting for mark, simone to show up I know he's there. We have a little technical problem there, so We'll just sort of get things going. I'm sure he's going to have more to say about this controversy involving president, trump and hydroxy chloroquine now obviously mark is a defender of this practice lot of controversy about it and I I will tell you that in terms of the use of this drug to treat corona virus. There are a number. Number of stories I know a couple of individuals and actually several that have taken this, and it's been very very effective in treating corona virus the issue here for the president and I. Guess You gotTa. Give encourages a man of his conviction. He's touted this thing from the very beginning so he's taking it, but as a prophylactic and I guess you have a lot of people are worried about that. Of course. Nancy Pelosi was worried about him. Right calling him obese in. In the the delicate category, so you gotta wonder, but again it's it's. It's his decision. Now we have another part of the tri-state area opening today. Believe it or not even realize that Connecticut was the last state in the nation to open up. You would've thought New York is, but I mean that's the only New York City here. We're under lockdown for God knows how long, but Connecticut reopened today. they have allowed retail stores to open? A malls can open on. You can go to restaurants as long as you're dying outside. And I will tell you. I'm here in South Carolina and that's the situation that we had here for a number of weeks now and Y'all remain under a big lockdown up there in new. York but I must say it's fairly normal down here and I. Think what life can return to a fairly normal routine with certain precautions. Clearly if you are in the endangered category, I mean if you're a patient at a nursing home, or if you are undergoing chemotherapy or your immune challenged, you gotta stay home. You gotTA. Stay home to protect yourself. You don't mingle with people, but if you're a relatively healthy person, I gotta believe that you can go out. Maintain that social distance going to be a a thing that we're going to have to for quite a while anyway, but you can go out you can go to. A restaurant made reservations for dinner tomorrow night. I'm going to eat outside, but What you get you go to the table. There's plenty of space between tables. And for the most part, your servers have masks and gloves on, they sanitize the table. They don't give you re usable menu. You'll get a piece of paper, or they'll just put it up on a board and you can read the the menu items and choose from that. And then when you're done, your table is sanitized. It's rinsed off with a disinfectant salt pepper shakers are replaced, too, and it sets there for awhile, and in most cases you're outside, so if it's in the sun, it's going to help with that and everything's fine, and I will tell you to here in this particular part of South Carolina head area I keep. Keep Track of the local statistics and amazingly when this thing opened partially, there were about two hundred eighty I can get you. The numbers for two hundred eighty cases of corona virus in this particular county, and it's pretty much stayed the same well. It's two hundred ninety nine right now, but twelve and twelve deaths, and that's been the case for like a couple of. Weeks here in the death toll is very very minimal, so. Mark Are you. There yeah I'm on my phone. Oh, what happened? Well we had as you know this perfect system, the greatest software that I would connect with, and they decided to put in some different Tom. Oh you know what I know what you're talking about because I have I have? The new tuna works perfectly you got you gotta push the right buttons. Oh now I've lost the phone. Can you hear me on the air? I yeah. I've got you I got jogging here. Where you can hear me on the air. I can hear you Well I. Assume you're on here. I can hear you in my headphones. Okay I guess they go ahead. What. Now, you know we had. We had the system we had set up. The software knows for like four weeks. Not a glitch never went off once, and then they wanted to put in a whole new system and I said well. Maybe maybe we should just stick with the. Of this new one? So. I knew this was going to happen, so you can hear me fine. Everybody can hear me I, got you. Okay Great. So, what we're talking about I I was I was listening to burning and sit. What were you guys talking about? Talking about reopening, I was telling me about how it's. You know it can be functional. There's no need to be locked down forever. That's true except our ratings are up like forty percents since this lockdown people not only listening, listening now for the whole show, and governor Cuomo. He wants you locked down, so you? What briefings are ratings are through the roof? Maybe you should stay lockdown. Okay, go ahead. Don't get out of the House. Now we need everybody at first of all Connecticut is open right now right now. What's it what time is? Ten twelve things are open. You can go into stores. You can go into restaurants open in an hour and they at the last minute pulled back on the hair salons. They can't open yet. That's going to be delayed. The Governor says the hair salons needed more time. from what I hear hair salon owners telling me they didn't need any more time. They were ready to go, but the state wants a lot of things done. They want like plexiglass between the stations and that kind of stuff, so they'll be opening a week or so, and are you talking about hydroxy chloroquine? Yes, yes. Yeah lot of doctors have called me. they're worried that Democrats in the fake news and the media might actually be killing people. Now you might cause some deaths They're all using hydroxy chloroquine. They've all been using it. can't used on every patient. The doctor has to check you. Make sure you can take it. If you've got any kind of certain conditions, you can't take it, but in all. All the cases they've used it on different great success dramatically brought down the symptoms, and it saved a lot of lives, but they're telling me now. Because of what fake news has been doing, they give it to. People and people are afraid to take it, so there were actually worried. There could be a death or two from people, not taking their hydroxy Clark. Don't listen to fake news. Your doctors know what they're doing when your doctor tells you. Hill check your medical history and your heart and your ekg and your other medicines. If he tells you to take it, it's okay to take it. They usually give it with a z pack or with zinc vitamin. C. But it's working on everybody, but you know what I've decided. The birth this and even doctors have said they think this. it it. It does work, but no one's convinced. One hundred percent of works preventative wise. They're not sure it can absolutely prevent it. In fact, they don't think it can really prevent it. What they think is. If you're about to get it, because Kita Hydroxy Clark. Get it in the earliest stage. You can get it if you can get it on day one. It's going to really help you, so they think if the president's taking if that's true. that he must have had a much bigger exposure than what's being reported. You know there was what was the story that Valet that he that served them lunch. HAS THAT NOW? That makes sense that makes sense. If, somebody else had yeah, because bunch of doctors have told me that if they had them start on drastically that that means the valid interest bringing a classic coke put down and leave. He must have been in the room for twenty minutes here and there. Must have been around a lot and it must have been a couple of other if if they think there was some serious exposure to the. That's why they would start him on it so if he's taken it. You know if he's really taken it. That would be the reason why so We got Have you been around anybody who later got it. That happens sometimes. No, no I haven't been near anyone. Thank God yeah. Yeah, and I've been careful I'm going to go, but what's like I was with somebody or are. They ran into start talking to me too long or they got too close. and you start to worry about it came right up to. He's talking me so now. I call the person like a few days later. Just make sure they're okay. I call them But five days later. How you doing everything good? found. Then I do for fourteen days because fourteen days is the longest incubation then on the fourteenth I call Sunday sound great and he's fine. I JUST WANNA. See how you doing now. The Guy Thinks I love him. Calling him. We want to know how he's doing I. Hope they notice that after fourteen days I never talked to you again. You got to that so. Connecticut is reopening today. You'll be now. Here's the problem. They're GONNA do outdoor dining and Connecticut as great outdoor restaurants, but. you're going to now be dependent on the weather. I was checking the forecast It's Memorial Day weekend looks pretty good. It'll be like in the. Upper sixties you can eat outside in the upper sixties, but look It looks like rains possible one of these nights, but the most crucial thing is getting US reopen getting people back to work especially this area New York. You know we have a million people in the tri-state area, the work in the restaurant industry or depend on it. You gotta get them back to work. Did you watch the president yesterday? Do the roundtable with all the restaurant owners yeah, I was reading. The fake news went after him. They said Oh the president was awful. It was. Was cringe-worthy watching and talk to these guys. And they pointed to the Thomas Keller, segment! Thomas. Keller is one of the three or four chefs in America in the world. per se in new. York French kitchen in California, and he kept interrupting. Thomas Keller was cringe-worthy article, said I went and watched it. I could see why he was interrupting Keller's Great Guy. He's a genius makes the best cooking videos you'll ever see. You could never cook anything in his videos. It's too complicated. You'd have to set aside three years of your life one of these dishes. But Keller was talking about his problems. Now with suppliers. You can't get supplied and trump was asking. What do you mean like butter? You can't get because we'll have to have a certain kind of butter. And he said it's very important to get the butter from certain months of the year where the cows eating the right type of green grass, because of it's a little later in the year there eating. Hey, and it can affect the flavor of his butter. So this is why trump was cutting them off. Realizes their millions of people in the heartland of America, starving to death who can't afford a can of tuna? And this guy is worried about what the cow ate that he got the butter. Butter might be a list. that. That's why trump is president because he actually stays in contact with the real world. He's not a guy who's ever gonNA. Eat Any Thomas Keller anything I've seen president trump's diet. It's a Cheeseburger, a club sandwich, grilled cheese, a milkshake, a steak, and that's about it. There's no. Fee. Chef came out of the way to came back to the table, said Mr. Trump I'm sorry. We don't have any butter with the cows eating green green grass, the cows eating. Hey, would that be okay? It's not something. He's. So now this is, it's hard to believe. This is Memorial Day weekend coming up. I cannot believe it so the beaches. will be open in long, island and so the beaches in New York. City are the only thing close right. The governor's open the beaches. And it's only here in New York. So what would that be? That would be rockaway Queens. Brooklyn Coney. Island all that. Kinda stuff now you can. Mayor has set it up, so you can go to the beach, but you can't go in the water. You can't near the water. You can look at the sand. You can't sit on the sand you can Walk on the beach, but you got to walk very fast. Don't stop. So what is he thinking? You know you cannot get the virus in very bright sunlight I mean. If if somebody came right up and spit in your face, you might get it, but the virus is killed in bright sunlight. It doesn't transmit very well by the way yesterday was very windy, so I talked to. Some people think I'm afraid to go out in the win. They save somebody, coughs or sneezes droplets come out. They could go six feet, and then you read these crazy reports. It can go ten feet fifteen feet if it's really windy. People got worried, so I asked a few experts on this, they said high wind is better. It disperses the virus all over the place. It's less likely to. In high winds, so if you get a bright sunny day with a lot of wind, you're all, said Actually, a very humid day when it gets really humid in the summer. Don't worry. That's when you're absolutely. The safest virus cannot get you on a hot humid day. Because the way it gets to you if somebody coughs sneezes, or even talks reallowed droplets come out of their mouth, little microscopic droplets come and hit you. But on a very humid day the air is is moist, so it's filled with millions of water droplets. So when they shoot the droplets out of their mouth, they'll go to all these water droplets and be totally watered down by the time they get to you, so you're safe on a hot humid day so in the middle of July. Don't complain about the weather. It's saving your life now. There's all these people saying We'll never get back to I. Hate this new normal. This raise new normal. We'll never get back to this EVAC seen. Vaccines not coming for a while. That's probably the end of the year. And even then you know when they have a vaccine. When it come up with it, they got a test to see. If there's any after effects or anything, so wh- Joe Bartlett. Would you be the Guinea pig? You go first and get that I don't want any vaccines. No Sir I'll take my chances with the droplets. Yeah Let's have Democrats take vaccine, and then we'll wait. And see what happens. and and by the way all you in the fake news. Democrats all you trumpeters. We'd like you to sign a release form that you will never take hydroxy chloroquine. Quinn's should God. Forbid you get the disease, you will not take it. You'll refuse it. save it for the. People that want Hey. We got lots to get to Check out the webpage. There's some really good stuff up there. If I could remember what it is, but I'll tell ya just click here and oh. this is great. Did you see Biden yesterday Now? This guy's brain is completely fried. He is not there anymore. You know he can't remember things. Sometimes. He's talking about the corona virus and he can't remember what it's called. Watch this video. He can't remember the name of the virus. That's a tough one nowadays and then Oh. What's this? Seinfeld maybe oversaw saw this. This is the corona virus episode of Seinfeld. Also I. We kept. I kept telling you about this that the Tesla's going to get wiped out by There's all these tesla killers coming. These are incredible. Electric Cars Porsche has one Jaguar has BMW. Take a look at this video. Here's the tesla killer from BMW. This is the electric car of the future of this. It's all up in the web page to seven ten W. O., R. Dot Com Slash Mark, seven ten W. O. R. Dot com slash mark. President going to to the Ford Plant. He's GonNa Visit Implant today, and in this plant they require everybody to wear masks so as asking. What is the president wearing masks quasi wearing a mask in every briefing start? Why don't you wearing a mask and? have you ever heard? CUOMO takes questions everyday. Nobody nobody's ever said to him a y you wearing a mask and he does the briefings from a different part of the state every day one days in Buffalo, one days in Queens at the MTA headquarters I, think yesterday was at North Long Angel, traveling all over the state, never with a mask on. Nobody ever asked him that they asked the president every. Favorite part of the briefing when he takes questions and fake news into their act, and then the president has to respond. We've announced a plan. We're opening up our country just rude person you are. Yeah, that was her. When are you GonNa? Come up with a plan to. Do all day they're. They got five thousand people putting together a plan older, she actually said. Why don't you have a plan on how to Ryoko? We've announced a plan. We're opening up our country, just a rude person you are. Y-. So, but listen, let's. Remember. If you look at Florida. They have a bigger population than New York City. They've got Miami which has got his bottom many people as a New York City and densely populated, and they've got other major cities like. O or Landau in Tampa they had like a thousand cases are thousand deaths, and we had a phenomenal number They had forty thousand total cases. We have three hundred and forty thousand. They get totally out of control. Not to mention their budget is totally balanced. Ours was ten billion before this even started so cuomo become the hero. Go Round the Santa's isn't the here well? We know the answer to that liberal PL- privilege of course now governor Cuomo made possibly the dumbest mistakes ever threw out every step of this crisis from not shutting down now we're looking back at. It said he didn't shut down fast enough. The Santa's shut down at a much earlier stage I don't mean the date, but it's how many cases you know. Disentis like a thousand cases shut the state down Cuomo. Wait until whatever was twenty thousand cases before shutting down, so we shutdown way too late. Governor. Cuomo made this the dumbest decision ever in history of sending corona virus patients into the nursing homes. Remember, even had a rule. Nobody's allowed no visitors, no family or visitors in the nursing home. They were worried. These people might have the virus, but when it came to the people that definitely had the virus just got tested for the virus. They're sick with the virus. He ordered the nursing homes to take them. Telling them they can't take the family or visitors, but they could take the P- The people with virus and spread it all over the place. Four thousand senior citizens dead as a result. Now, give the governor credit for this. This was a smart decision for him. He then secretly snuck into the recent budget a law that you cannot sue a nursing home now so if you're one of the relatives of somebody that this decision killed. You can't sue the nursing home now. Can you imagine that is one sneaky governor, isn't it? Sneaky he does that do. You gotTa give them credit. That's pretty smart. Anyway. Let's go to Kevin Fairfield Connecticut Hey Kevin how you doing? Mark Mark I'm just calling to say just calling to say thank you. Just, calling to say, thank you for not taking a single day off through this whole thing. For being there for us every single day you and joe both. Honestly it means so much. You've taken this all really seriously. Like your responsibility to us. It's been amazing, and that's why I'm calling true. I think every day at noon. People should lean out their window and blow horns and banged pots. For me in jail. I don't see that ideas not going over, so no, no, no, no! It's still happens every night at seven o'clock I hear a banging a rattling I think it's my my dishwasher's broken or something I say go into what the hell's that noise? And then I realized. It's seven o'clock banging their pots outside but it's. It's well deserved for those frontline healthcare workers. They are doing incredible work. Let's go to Vincent in Brooklyn Vincent. Good Morning Mock rock I s I spoke to yesterday I had my research revisit what my doctor finally! This is one of the top Manhattan. I suppose they're going to perform the surgery. Can we. Can we ask what it is this? All slugging day I think they want frank removing. So anyway, they the doctors did not have kind words for Andrew Cuomo and Dr Fao. One of them called Saudi. I'm Chad, doctor and the whole controversy surrounding hydroxy chloroquine one of the doctors while they were working me. Say Hey, look, if you. If you know the person, the country indications, their previous conditions it's fine more more often than not and another thing they also trashed Cuomo on is not using US as conflict, the hospital ship, and not using the Javid Center and also when all of this was done at two and a half hour work up. The doctor takes me in his office de Doctrine, says look almost still king. Cuomo still has this on lockdown and we're not gonNA be able to do your surgery until. So. Tell the truth. Be Honest. What is this is a sex change? Tell us what it is. What are you get? I'm old school. Man I'm only. Kidding you? But I day and they even said I. Mean this is totally unnecessary for most surgeries because you even get to be in the hospital overnight more often than not, it's just it's just really a power trip, and a lot of these guys afraid to speak out because they'll they'll. Doug kicked CUOMO's for sending inspectors and pull their licenses, and they're going to be careful because they worked for major hospital chains. Mark Vincent Good Luck with I. Hope you get it. Thanks for help. You get the surgery. Thanks, you know killing these hospitals in these doctors that the can't do the elective surgery because that's ninety percent of their revenue under normal times. When you talk to doctors, they all hate vouching. They used to love them two months now. They realize you can't at one of the complaints about. he's in bed with big Pharma. Bill Gates the World Health Organization. He was recommending chloroquine five years ago ten years ago for Corona viruses suddenly against it and the other problem with him. He's never worked as a doctor. He's a clinical researcher. A whatever the hell he is. He's a politician with a stethoscope, but he's never worked as a doctor. He's never treated a patient in his life. That's one reason Deborah burkes is. Is very good. It's GonNa much better background than faculty, and somewhere in that background for fourteen years. She treated patients at Walter. Reed hospitals doctor, so she knows about prescribing medicating watching cases all the way through anyway when we come back, Lionel will be with us. You'll get to the bottom of what the hell's really going on with. These people but I on seven ten W. O. R., let's get the latest news. Here's Joe Bartlett. Mark Mayor de Blasio, announcing a four-part plan to keep seniors safe by addressing concerns in nursing homes that includes expanded testing more staff response teams to deal with an outbreak and a shift to home based CARE Governor Cuomo easing restrictions in New York for the Memorial Day weekend. He says the holiday should be commemorated, so he'll allow ceremonies with ten people are less MTA testing ultraviolet lights in the subways to see if it's effective in killing corona virus. They paid a million dollars for two hundred thirty UV lamps. They say it will be expanded to buses and commuter trains that successful and president trump continues to defend his use of. Of the anti-malaria malaria drug hydroxy chloroquine, there's no proof that implants off corona virus, but the president believes it gives him some additional safety. The next update at eleven breaking news at one start your day with Len Berman and Michael. Riedel, in the morning six to ten tomorrow I'm Joe Bartlett on seven ten W Wars Uw O., our weather channel forecast below average temperatures again today, mostly still a bit breezy with winds out of the East northeast at times, gusting up over twenty miles per hour high's mid sixties, forty five tonight sunny tomorrow mid sixties, increasing clouds Friday with a chance of late day, showers, low seventies, meteorologist Ken Boone. Well of course you know Lionel Longtime. Radio TV host Youtube Star. You should check out his shows Lionel nation at Youtube Lionel nation at Youtube Lionel how you doing? I'm doing terrific by the way you make fun of Joe Biden all the time. 'cause you know Joe Biden's out of his mind that Joe Biden is wary is Joe. Biden doesn't know how to pronounce Covet How many times have you ask? Joe Bartlett everyday. Joe North Carolina South Carolina South. Next Day job North Carolina's two choices thirty times into you finally get it right I'm kinda worried about you. All right you can't tell. Could you tell North Carolina from South Carolina? Don't don't even deign to. Solve these people you know mark. This is one of the most fascinating social experiment ever. This is really not about Cova by the race, not corona virus because there's seven of them. It's one in particular, but I'm finding people. That I thought I knew who are acting. Incredibly insane, not asking any questions just doing things. You all have these funds a friend of mine on Facebook I. Look at me I'm getting. My. I'm doing my part getting my getting. Anyone for check chess for what Larry? The the thing. What are they doing? You stick it Joe Rod in my nose. And what are the results? Go now. Are they checking for anybody? Well What did they do with What does that mean if you're positive prowl? It means Eh, you are. Are you in control of those findings? Well, what if YOU WANNA contest? Those you know I I'm just trying to do my part now going to say this, there's music you can come in if we check your temperature. Mr Simone. You're ninety eight, oh. You're ninety nine. Is that too high? I don't know I brought my own temperature. You'RE GONNA. Have Your own while I'm going to challenge you as I can to be at Wimbledon. Referee what are you got a hundred or one I got ninety eight nine. Oh. That's. What does that mean? Can you imagine excuse me? I gotTa Reservation Pardon me I'm doing basil temperatures I've got some minimum wage highschool drop. Excuse me, who is scanning foreheads and going to apply this data to a chart. To German whether your degree of Febrile l'idee. Nobody knows what what they're doing, but I think I can't wait for the vaccines. What is the vaccine check You know. Is it tested while I? I can't tested any side effects No, you know why. Everybody's so upset with the Hydroxy Clark with because the vaccine industry think about eight billion doses for every man woman, child and Inbetween on the planet. Versus some Kinda cheap hydroxy Clark win, which proves to be effective. In, not vaccinating you. Not Preventing maybe. But actually addressing the problem that that problem, and then you've got this poor judge a General Flynn now mark. You're attorney and prosecutor why the Hell could adjudge takeover a case in prosecuted. Kevin Judge Sullivan. Yes. Am I allowed to withdraw the plea? Well? Yes, underworld eleven and others, yes, so the federal rules contemplate me pleading guilty under oath, and then changing my mind and was drawing right. Yes, that's what the rule says. Yes, without being charged with perjury for having live, the wool says you can withdraw if you like. Now. You would think somebody was saying you never hear. Withdraw Plea, wipe because you pled under oath, and we're not going to accounting inter facilitate or suborned perjury. What Flynn's doing. He's basically trying to avail himself of the rule which allows you to withdraw plea now. The funny part of this is normally most most judges say look. I've got a docket. I kinda liked to speed up even big cases. If the Department of Justice doesn't want their case, Hey dismiss it. It's your case especially when the DOJ says Whoa Whoa wait a minute. Hold it. This is wrong. Yeah, I mean the idea of what this man has been through. and. You know mark the thing. I can't figure out. Is Bar to your trust him. He's the only man I know who can tell you something. And you feel good. But nothing happens like he catherine Herridge, who was fantastic on CBS how they allow her to maintain her job on CBS where she basically puts out more. I think not pro trump appro, pro justice stuff so bar six with her and says. We're concerned what they do. Their general funding what they did during the course of the transition is on. And therefore severely calls into question, the degree of due process that may have been violent wall general bar. Are you do anything about it, you know. What about this?

Until the last vote is counted Tuesday November sixth on MSNBC. This is the New Yorker fiction podcast from the New Yorker magazine. I'm Debra Zysman fiction editor at the New Yorker each month. We invite a writer to two story from the magazine's archives to read and discuss this month, we're going to hear miracle polish by Steven Millhauser, which was published in the New Yorker in November of twenty eleven if the polish had made me look younger if it had made me handsome, visit at smooth my skin and fixed my teeth and change the shape of my nose. I'd have known. It was some horrible mechanical trick the story was chosen by Stewart dieback, poet and fiction writer who story collections include paper lantern love stories and ecstatic cahoots fifty short stories high steward. I deborah. So what is it that most draws you to Stephen mill Hauser's work? Well, I'm attracted to the kind of fabulous world that he creates a special fineness for. Writers working that dimension a fiction, but the other thing that I really love about his work is just the sheer beauty of his writing. These got all all the tools. You mentioned to me that you have been teaching the story miracle polish in a in a class on writing fabulous them. Correct. When I saw it in the New Yorker, I gobbled up and put it in. My course back, and it's it's stay there. I mean, I rotate the stories, but that one has as remained how do you? How do you define fabulous him? Not the way I would have this was a scholarly discussion. But for the class, I describe it as anything that's not realism. Really, I cheat a little bit. You know, they they come in thinking, they can write science-fiction and some of them do. But the chorus pack itself leans heavily towards writers like Millhauser, bore Hayes. Karen, russell. Sara bynum Kelly link than so they kind of pick up a message, I suppose from it. And those are all writers who who take quite realistic details if daily life and do something new with them in a way, right? Exactly. Yeah. I guess there's a little bit of magical realism and everybody since Marquez. Where you've got that mix between the realistic details, and then the some kind of transition that jumps into the other world, but makes miracle polish stand out for you. Well, I I one of the things that these stories often do is that you you see kinds of of stuff going all the way back to the tail tried and true. Magical imagery, for instance, the mirror. I mean, how many how many zillions of stories have there been that play around with all the imagery that comes out of a mirror. The the other the reflection kind of the d'appel ganger. I mean, you could just go on talking about all the stuff that just that image of the mirror. Does. And so in a writer does that the writers kind of tapping into if I am allowed to kind of a pop psychology thing that what a young call that archetypes. But what I love about. This particular story is that there's a downside to when you do that as well. Because it kind of concede like the image is also been used, and what I love about this story is that Millhauser takes all the power of that mirror imagery. And then he makes it fresh again. He does something with that image that I've never seen anybody else. Do. Yeah. It's more subtle maybe than most mayor stories. Exactly. Yeah. We'll talk some more after the story. And now, here's Stewart dieback reading miracle polish by Stephen Mel Hauser. Miracle polish. I should've said no to the stranger at the door with his skinny throat and his black sample case that pulled him a little to the side. So that one of his jacket. Cuffs was higher than the other polite note of done the trick. No, thanks. I'm afraid not not today than the closing the door on the heavy click of the latch, but I'd seen the lines of dirt on the black shoe creases the Warren down heels shine on the jackets sleeves the glint of desperation in his eyes. All the more reason I said to myself to send him on his way. His I stepped aside and watched him move into my living room. He looked quickly around before setting his case down on the small table next to the couch. I'd made up my mind to buy something from him anything hairbrush, the Brooklyn Bridge by didn't get him out of there. I had better things to do with my time. There was no hurrying him as he slowly did each class with his bony fingers and explain that a mournful voice that this was my lucky day in the suddenly open case, I saw six rows of identical dark Brown glass bottles each a bit smaller than a bottle of cough medicine. Two things struck me. The case must have been very heavy, and he must not have sold anything in a long time. The product was called miracle polish it cleaned mirrors with. Easy flick of the wrist. He seems surprised even suspicious when I said I take one as if he had wandered the earth for years with the same case feel to bursting with unsold bottles. I tried not to imagine. What would drive a man to go from house to house in a neighborhood like this one with porches and old Maples and kids playing basketball and driveways, a neighborhood were girl scouts sold you cookies and the woman across the street asked you to contribute to the leukemia drive, but no strangers with broken down shoes and desperate is came tramping from door to door lugging heavy cases full of Brown bottles called miracle polish. The name exasperated me a child could have done better than that though. There was something to be said for the way it sat there flaunting its fraudulence. Don't trust me shouted for all to hear don't be a fool. When he tried to sell me, a second bodily understood from my look that it was time to go. You've made a wise choice. He said solemnly glancing at me and looking abruptly away, and he clicked his case shut unhurried out the doors. If afraid I'd changed my mind lifting slat of half closed blinds. I watched to make his way across the front walk with the sample case pulling him to one side. At the sidewalk he stopped put down his case next to the sugar maple wiped his jacket sleeve across his forehead and gaze up the black. If he were the new boy in school getting ready to cross the school yard where faces who are already turning to stare at him for a moment. He looked back at my house when he saw me watching him, he grins, suddenly and frowned jerked. His head away with a sharp snap. I let the blind slat drop. Ahead no interest in mirror polish. I placed the bottle in a drawer of the hutch where I kept extra flashlight batteries packages of light bulbs in an unused photograph album gave no more thought to it. Early one morning a week or so later, I stepped over to the oval mirror in the upstairs hall as I did every morning before leaving work as I tugged down the sides of my suit, jacket and smooth my tie. I notice the small smudge on the glass near my left shoulder. It'd probably been there for years ever since I brought the mirror down for my parents attic along with the faded. Armchair. And my grandmother's couch with threadbare arms. I try to recall whether I had ever cleaned the oval mirror before whether I had ever bothered to dust the oh, mahogany frame, carved with leaves and flowers. I understood that I was having these thoughts only because of the stranger with the bony fingers and the worn down heels as I went down to the hutch. I felt a burst. Vera tation as I heard him say this is your lucky day of stairs. I pulled tissue from the box in the bathroom and unscrew the top of the Brown bottle. And the dark glass in white capital letters stood the words miracle polish. The liquid was thick slow and greenish white. I applied a bit of the tissue and wipe the smudge when I lifted my hand, I was almost disappointed to see that. The spot was gone was aware of another thing the rest of the MIR look dollar tarnished had I really never noticed it before with another dab of polish. I set to work wiping the entire surface right up to the curves of the frame. It was done quickly. I step back for a look in the light from the overhead bulb with its all glass shade mixed with sunlight from the window on the nearby landing. I saw myself reflected clearly, but it was more than that was a freshness to my image a kind of mile glow that I had never seen before I looked at myself with interest. This in itself was striking for. I wasn't the kind of man who. Looked at himself in mirrors. I was the kind of man who spent as little time as possible in front of mirrors, the kind of man who had a brisk and practical relation to his reflection with its tired is it's disappointed shoulders. It's look of defeat. Now. I was standing before a man who resembled my old reflection. Almost exactly but who had been changed in some manner. The way a lawn under a cloudy sky changes when the sun comes out what I saw was a man who had something to look forward to a man who expected things of life. That afternoon when I returned from work. I went up to the oval mirror the polish glass, I was struck again by a sense of freshness. Had the MIR really been so deeply in need of cleaning. There were three other mirrors in the house the mirror over the sink in the upstairs bathroom the mirror over the sink in the downstairs half bath, the small circular mirror with a wooden handle that hung on a hook beside the upstairs bathroom window. None of them had seemed to need cleaning before when I was through with them. I saw my new reflection. Glowing back at me from all three. I looked at the Brown bottle of miracle polish in my hand. It seemed an ordinary bottle a bottle like any other if the polish had made me look younger if it had made me handsome that smooth my skin and fixed my teeth and change the shape of my nose. I'd have known it was some horrible mechanical trick. And I'd have smashed those mirrors with my fists rather than allow myself to be taken in like a fool, but the image in the mirror was unmistakably me. Not young not good looking at anything in particular little slump heavy at the waist Pao chief under the is not the sort of man that anyone would ever choose to be. And yet he looked back at me in a way, I hadn't seen for a long time away that made the other things. All right. He looked back at me. The thoughts sprang to mind like a man who believed in things. The next morning. I woke before my alarm and hurried over to the oval mirror in the hall. My image. Glowed back at me. Even my rumpled pajamas had a certain Johnny look in the polish glass. The dull wall seem brighter the bedroom door Richard Brown the bathroom mirror. I shone forth. The whiteness of the sink burned in the glass. The towels looked fuller downstairs, the reflected window and the half bath showed part of a brilliant curtain beyond which lay the green grass of childhood summers all day at work. I thought of nothing but the shining surfaces like coins, catching the sun. When I came home. I went from mirror to mirror striking poses turning my head from side to side because I've prided myself. I never having false hopes. I never permitting myself to imagine that things weren't better than they were. I asked myself whether I might be allowing the mirrors to deceive me, maybe the greenish white polish contained a chemical that upon contact with glass produced an optical distortion. Maybe the words miracle polish at cost cells in my brain to fire in a series of associations that affected the way I saw reflected world whatever was happening. I knew that I needed another opinion from someone I could trust. It was Monaco who had set me straight Monaco who had no Monaco who looked at the world. Through large kind skeptical is darkened by. Many disappointments. Monica rive as she did twice a week after work once on Tuesdays and once with her overnight bag on Fridays, and as always when I greet at her. I was careful not to look too closely at her for Monaco's likely to draw back and say something wrong, well, raising her hand anxiously to her hair she had a habit of assessing her looks mercilessly. She approved a variety is like the shape of a wrists in the length of her fingers put up with their calves was unforgiving above her thighs for chin, her biggish knees. Her hips her upper arms, she fretted over any in perfection on her skin like a mosquito bite or a heat rash or a tiny pimple and often war hidden band-aid on his shoulder. Calf holding him some ointment place. She wore long skirts that came down to her ankles with plane blouses over plain white bras. She liked to mix dark greens dark Browns and dark grays for shoulder length Brown hair was usually straight and parted in the middle. The sometimes she pulled it back and gathered it in a big dark clip that looked like an enormous insect. She inspected herself in front of any mere searching for flaws like a teenage girl. Oh before a big party. In fact, she was forty and work doesn't administrative assistant at the local high school for years. We had edge toward each other without moving all the way. I liked how she hesitated little before easing into a smile like the slight heaviness of her body, it's faint awkwardness. It's air of mile tiredness like tau when she took off her shoes and place their feet on the sack. She would wiggle her toes, slowly and say crinkly her is that feels really really good sometimes in a certain light when she held her body a certain way, I would see her as a woman for whom things had not worked out as she had hoped a woman sinking slowly into defeat. Then a burst of fellow feeling would come over me for I knew how difficult it was waiting for something better waiting for something that was never going to happen. I took her upstairs to the oval Mirren switched on the light. Look at that. I said swept out my arm and a stagey way. It was a gesture meant to imply that what I had to show. Her was nothing much really nothing to be taken. Seriously. I had hoped the reflection in the polished MIR would please her in some way, but I hadn't expected what I saw for their. She was without a touch of weariness afresh, Monica of vibrant, Monica a Monaco with the glow of pleasure in her face. She was dressed in clothes that no longer seemed a little drab a little elderly, but we're handsomely understated seductively restrained. Not for a moment to the mirror maker, look young or beautiful for she was not young. And she was not beautiful. But it was as if some inner constriction had dissolved some sense of her drifting gradually into unhappiness and the mirror. She gave forth a fine resilience Monica. Saw it. I saw her see it. She began turning her body from scientists side smoothing down her lung skirt over her hips, pulling her shoulders back arranging her hair. Now in the mornings, I rose with a kind of best and went directly to the hall mirror, where even my tumbled hair gave me a look of casual confidence the shadowy folds under my I spoke of someone in the habit of a facing and overcoming obstacles. My cubicle. I worked with a concentration and with an eye lightness of heart. When I returned home in the late afternoon. I looked at myself in all four MIR's. It struck me that before I could reach the oval MIR in the upstairs hall I had to pass through the front hall crossed the dusky living room with its sagging couch walked the length of the kitchen climbed two sets of creaking stairs. The long went up to the landing in the short went up to the hall one night after dinner, I drove to the outskirts of town where the old shopping center faced off against the new mall in a battle of slashed prices in the aisle after blenders juicers, I came to them I saw tall narrow mirrors square MIR's framed in oak and dark walnut round mirrors like gigantic eyeglass lenses Chevaliers mirrors, framed and Coppard brands mirrors with rows of hooks along the bottom. Avoiding my reflection as well as I could for these MIR showed only a tired man with a look of sorrow in his eyes. I chose a rectangular mirror with a cherry wood frame at home. I opened a drawer of the hutch took out the Brown bottle. With a few careful swipes of cloth. I polish the mirror. I hung it. In the front hall across from the closet and X to the boot tray with its old slippers gardening shoes and step back. In the light of the ceiling ball. I saw my reflection standing with a cloth over his shoulder and looking out at me Sieff ready to hurl himself into whatever. The day might bring the sight of him standing there with his sleeves pushed up and his cloth over his shoulder and his look of readiness. All this made me smile, the smile that came back to me seem to stream out of the glass and into my arms. My chest. My face my blood. The next day after work I stopped at a furniture star and bought another mirror at home. I polished it in hung it in the kitchen facing the table. His I ate my dinner. I was able to look up whenever I liked and see the oak table, the gleaming plate with its chicken leg and baked potato the glowing silverware my reflection looking up alertly like someone who's attention had been called to an important matter. And Friday Monica entered the front hall and stop sharply when she saw the mirror. She glanced at me and seemed about to say something then turned her face away. In front of the mirror. She stared at herself thoughtfully for a long while without turning back to me. She said she supposed it wouldn't be such a bad idea to be able to check her hair and blouse before entering the living room, especially when it was pouring down rain when the wind was blowing. I said nothing is I watched her reflection. Push your hair boldly from her cheek together. She and Monica move toward the edge of the mirror disappeared into the living room. In the kitchen. I some Monica's lips pull into a little tight circle. It wasn't expression. I'd never cared for with its combination of petulance and stubborn severity. But in the new mirror. I saw only a flirtatious pout. It's just an experiment. I said if you really don't like it, but it's your house. She said. That isn't the point. I said. She threw me a look and Lord or is it was away. She had a protesting silently she sat with her back to the mirrors. I brewed her a pot of her tea. Seated across from her. I was able to look beyond her strained face to the back of her head the back of her blouse collar showing through her hair the top of her shoulder blades. They all seem to be enjoying themselves. She talked to be about her troubles with the lawn, man. Once when she turned to look out the window. I saw in the mirror the curved line of her forehead the upward slant of the bottom of her nose the little slope between her nostrils and our upper lip. I was struck by the fine liveliness of her profile. I let a day peice. But the next day I bought a large dark framed mirror for the living room and hung it across from the couch. I took out my Brown bottle and polish the mirror. Well when I step back. I admire the new room that sprang into view in the polish depths. Monica would of course, push your lips together. But she would come to see was offer the best the mirrors of my house filled me with such a sense of gladness that a room without one struck me as a dark cell. I brought home a full length mirror for the TV room rectangular mirror with a simple frame for the upstairs bedroom and identical one for the guest room down the hall at a yard sale. I bought an old shield shaped mirror that I hung in the cellar behind the washer and dryer when evening when I entered the kitchen restlessness seized me. And when I return from the mall, I hung a second mirror in the kitchen between the two windows. Monica said nothing. I could feel our opposition hardening in her like a muscle. I wasn't unaware that I was behaving oddly like the man in a grip of an obsession at the same time. What I was doing felt entirely natural and necessary. Some people added widows to brighten their homes I bought nears. This. It's such a bad thing. I kept seeing them at yard sales leaning against rickety tables piled with pink dishes are hanging in hallways and bedrooms that estate sales fancy end of town. I added a second one to the living room a third to the upstairs bath in the front hall. The back of the front door, I hung a mirror framed in a dark wood that matched the color of the umbrella stand when I passed by my mirrors when I caught even a glimpse of myself as I walked into a room. I felt a surge of wellbeing. What was the harm now? And then Monica try to be playful about at all what she would say only one mirror on the landing lender expression with change as she saw me sinking into thought once she said, you know, sometimes I think you like me better there, she pointed to Amir, then here, she pointed to herself, she said a teasingly with a little laugh, but I never look was an anxious question is if the prove wrong, I turned my full attention to her before me, I saw woman with a worried for hidden. Unhappy is. I imagined her gazing out at me from all the mirrors of my house with is serene and full of hope an impatience came over me as I looked at her dark Brown sweater at the hand nervously smoothing her dark green skirt at the lines of tension in her mouth. In order to demonstrate to Monica that all was well between us that. Nothing had changed that I was no slave to mirrors I propose the Saturday picnic. We packed a lunch in a basket. Took a long drive out to the lake Monica had put on a big brimmed straw hat. I had never seen before. And anew light green blouse with a little shimmer in it and the car she took off her hat and placed it on her lap. She said back with half closed eyes and let the sunlight ripple over her face. A tiny green jewels. Sparkled honor ear lobe. At the picnic grounds. We sat at one of the sunny and shady tables, scattered under the high pines that grow at the edge of a small beach. It was a hot drowsy day. Smoke of grills rose into the branches. A man stood with one foot on his picnic table. Bench an arm resting on his thighs. He held a can of beer stared out at the beach and the water kids ran among the tables on the beach three boys in the length. Bathing trunks were playing catch with enormous. Baseball gloves in a lime. Green tennis ball, a plump mother and her gaunt teenage son were hitting a volleyball back and forth. Young women in bikinis and men with white hair on their chests strolled on the sand in the water. A few people were splashing and laughing a black dog with taller swimming towards shore with a wet stick in its mouth farther out you could see canoes moving and ORs lifting with sun flashes of spray when I turned to Monica I saw the whole afternoon flowing into her face and eyes. After the picnic. We walked along a trail that led partway around the lake here in their narrow strips of sand at the lake edge people lay on their backs on towels in the sun. We made our way down to the shore through prickly bushes on the sand. Monica pulled offer sandals lifting up her long skirt. She stepped into the water through backer, head to take in the sun with closed eyes. That moment it seemed to me that everything was possible for Monica and me going up to her. I said I've never seen you like this. With her is still closed. She said, I'm not myself today. She began to laugh, then I began to laugh because of what we had both said, and because of her laughter and the sun and the sky and the lake. And the ride home she fell asleep with her head against my shoulder. The long outing had tired me too though night in the same way in the car. So the afternoon uneasiness had begun to creep into me, the glare of the sun on the water hurt. My is the heat pressed on me. There was a slow Nissen things a sluggishness. Monica seemed to walk with more effort is if the air were a hot heaviness, she was pushing her way through the two of us she and her straw had an eye in Mike cargo shorts seem to me like actors playing the part of ordinary people enjoying a day at the lake. Fact, I was a man weighed down with disappointment a man for whom things had not worked out the way he had once imagined a quiet man cautious in his life. Timid when you came right down to it, though content enough to drift along through the little rituals of his day. Monica. I glanced over at her the back of her hand lay on her leg. The four fingers were leaning to one side the thumb hung in front of them. Something about those fingers in that thumb seemed to me the shape of despair. When I opened my front door stepped into the hall behind Monaco. Then the good feeling returned. In the mirror. We stood there. She and her shimmering green blouse die with glow of sunburn on my face deep in the shine of the polish glass her hand rose and a graceful arc to remove her straw hat. In the living room. I snatched glimpses of her in both mirrors. If she walked buoyantly toward the kitchen in the sunny kitchen, her cheerful reflection picked up a pitcher of water that caught the light. I look at the second mirror where she began to raise a glass of shining water post, suddenly and opener mouth in a lusty yawn. I'd like to lie down on a cassette. I turn my head and Soffer tight lips and tired islets. I followed her as she made her way slowly up the stairs and past the new mirror on the landing for a moment. Her hair glowed at me from the glass at the top of the stairs. She walked sternly. And without a glance pests the oval mirror and into the bedroom where I watched her bright reflection. Lied down on the bed. Closer is. I was tired. I was more than tired. But the sheer pleasure of being home filled me with a restless energy that drove me to stri through all the rooms of the house from time to time I stopped before Posht MIR to turn my head this way and that. It was as if my house with its many mirrors, drew all the old heaviness and weariness for my body. And in a sudden burst of inspiration. I took out the bottle of miracle polish which was still two-thirds Phil and went down to the cellar where I plight it to a new mirror that had been leaning against the side of the washing machine. Waiting for me to decide where to hang it? Later that evening as we sat in the living room. Monica still seemed tired and a little moody. I had let her to the couch and try to position her so that she could see her good-humored reflection. But she refused to look at herself. I could feel resistance coming out of her like the push of a hand. In the mirror. I admired a shoulder of her blouse. Then I glanced over at the other Monica the ones sitting stiffly very quietly on the couch. I had a sense of a sky darkening before storm can't I thought I heard her say so softly that. I wondered if she had spoken at all. Or perhaps she had said can what did you? I breathe it out barely able to hear my own words. I can't she said now there was no mistaking. Such a perfect day. And now this. She raised her arm and a weary sweeping motion that seemed to include the entire room entire universe. In the mirror. Hurry in playfully swept out her arm. I can't I tried. But I can't I can't you'll have to you'll have to choose. Choose. Her answer was so hushed. It seemed barely more than acceleration of air. Between me and her. You mean her? I hate her. She whispered burst into tears. She immediately stopped took a deep breath burst into tears again. He don't look at me. She said. But that's not I said I have to go. She said and stood up. She was no longer crying. She took another deep breath and rub their nostrils with the back of a bent finger. She reached into a pocket of her skirt and pulled out a tissue that crumbled into fuzz here. I said holding out my handkerchief, she has a tainted took it from me and dad that our nostrils. She ended back the handkerchief. She looked at me and turn to leave. Don't I set? Me or her. She whispered was out the door. During the next week. I flung myself into my work, which was just complicated enough to require my full attention without interesting me in the least. At five o'clock, I came directly home where I felt soothed in every room. But I was no child. No, naive self deceiver intent on a vetting predicament. I wanted to understand things I wanted to make up my mind. From the beginning. There had been a deep kinship between mannequin me. She was wary train to expect little of life grateful for small pleasures honor guard against promises accustomed to making the best of things and the habit of both wanting and not during the white something more. Now miracle polish at come along with its Arab swagger, and it's taunting little whisper why not seemed to say why on earth not the mirrors that strengthen me that filled me with a new life made Monica bristle. Did she feel that I preferred falls version of her glittering version to the flesh and blood Monaco with her band-aids, big knees and her burden of Cyrus? Drew me was exactly the opposite. The shining mirrors. I saw the true Monica the hidden Monica, the Monica buried beneath years of the scourge -ment far from escaping into a world of polish delusions, I was able to see in the depths of those mirrors the world no longer darkened by diminishing hopes fading dreams. They're always clear always possible. Monica. I understood perfectly would never see these things as I did when she looked in the mirror. She saw the place that kept pulling me away from her and in that place arrival of whom she was desperately jealous. I felt myself moving slowly in the direction of dangerous decision. I did not wish to make like someone swerving on an icy road. Tartan embankment. It wasn't until another week at passed that I knew what I was going to do summer was in its fullness on the front porches. Neighbors fan themselves with folded newspapers sprinklers sent arcs of spray and patches of lawn and strips of driveway which shone in the sun like black licorice at the top of a ladder. A man in a baseball cap move. The paintbrush lays Lee back and forth with Saturday afternoon. I had called Monica that morning and told her head something important to show her. She was to meet me on the front porch. We sat there drinking lemonade like an old married. Couple. Watching the kids passing on bicycles the squirrel scampering along a telephone wire. A Robin was pecking furiously at the roadside grass after a while. I said, let's go inside. She turned to me. Then as if she were about to ask a question if that's what you. Want? She finally said turn both hands palm up. When we stepped into the front hall, Monica stopped. She stopped so abruptly that it was as if someone had put a heavy hand on her shoulder. I watched her stare at the place for the MIR head hung, she looked at me and looked again at the wall. Then she turned and looked at the back of the front door star panel shown Dolly, enter the hall, light, Monaco, reached out and touched her fingers to my arm. I took her through every room of the house stopping before familiar walls and the living room a photograph of my parents looked out at us from the wall where one MIR head on the other place was bare except for two small holes in the faded wallpaper with its pattern of tall vases field with peyot flowers in the kitchen new poster showed many kinds of tea places of the oval near in the upstairs hall. There was a framed painting of an old mill beside a Brown pond with two ducks. New bathroom cabinets with bevelled etched mirrors Hong over the upstairs and downstairs sinks. I could see the gratitude rushing into Monica's cheeks when the tour was over our letter to the drawer in the hutch and remove the Brown bottle in the kitchen. She watched me poor the thick greenish white liquid into the sink. I washed out the empty bottle and drafted into the garbage pail next to the stove. She turned to me and said. This is the most wonderful gift that you. We're not done yet. I said with a touch of excitement in my voice, and let her through the kitchen door down the four wooden steps into the backyard. Against the back of the house all the mirrors stood lined up slanted at different angles. There was the oval mayor from the upstairs hall leaning on a cellar window there. They were the two front hall mirrors, the kitchen mirrors and their wooden frames the shield shape mirror from the seller. The living room mirrors the bedroom. Mir's the full length mirror from the TV room. A pair of guest room mirrors, the upstairs bathroom mirror removed from its cabinet the mirror from the landing the downstairs bathroom near the other mirrors that I had bought polished and stored in closets ready to be Hong square mirrors and Brown mirrors swivel mirrors on wooden stands. Amir shaped like a four leaf clover. And the bright sun, the polished MIR's gleam like jewels. Here. They are said throwing out my hand I began walking along in front of them from one end to the other is I passed from mirror to mirror slanted against the house. I could see different parts of me, my shoes and pants cuffs, my belt and the bottom of my shirt. My sudden whole shape in the tall near my swinging hand now, and then I caught pieces of Monaco's rival standing back on the green green grass. And now I said as if I were addressing a crowd, they paused for dramatic effect. I glanced at Monaco who stood there with a look that was difficult to fathom a worried. Look, it seemed to me I wanted to her sure that there was nothing to worry about. I was doing it all for her. Everything would soon be fine. I bent over behind a broad mirror at the end of the row, and withdrew a hammer. Raising the hammer high. I swung it against the glass. And I walked back long that rove mirrors swinging the hammer sending bright spikes of glass into the summer air. I cried smashed another see I shouted. I swan I smashed lines of wetness ran along my face bits of mirror clung to my shirt. Who was over faster than I thought possible? Along the back of the house broken mirror glass lay glittering on the grass here, and there an empty frame show triangles of glass still clinging to the would I looked at the hammer in my hand. Suddenly I threw across the yard hurled at high into the row spruce at the back. I could hear the hammer falling slowly through the Neely branches. There is set to Monica. I made a sweeping gesture with both hands the way you do when you're done with something. And I began walking up and down in front of her. Terrible excitement burned in me. I could feel my blood beating in my neck imagined bursting through the skin and brilliant gushes of red. She's gone. That's what you wanted. Isn't it? Isn't it all gone by by are you happy? Now. Are you? I stopped in front of her. Are you are you? I've been close. Are you are you are you haven't closer still I've been so close that? I couldn't see her anymore. Are you are you are you are you are you? Monica. Do the only thing she could do. She fled. But for she stood there as if she were about to speak. She stared at me with the look of a woman who had been struck repeatedly across the face. There was hurt in that look tiredness on a sort of pain tenderness, and along with it all came a quiet sureness as of someone who had made up her mind, and she turned and walked away. There's a restlessness so terrible that you can no longer bear to sit still in your own house you walk from room to room like someone visiting deserted town every day. I mourn for my mirrors what they're gleam of miracle polish where they'd once hung I saw on the patterns wallpaper framed paintings door panels lines of dust. One day. I drove out to the mall and came home with an oval MIR a plain dark frame, which I hung in the upstairs hall. I used it strictly for checking my suit jacket. Once when the doorbell rang, I rushed downstairs to the front door. But it was only a boy with a jar collecting money for a new scout troop. I could feel grayness ifting down on me like dust a bottle of miracle polish. Was it so much to ask? One of these days, the strangers bound to come again. He'll walk toward my house with his heavy case tugging him down to one side in my living room. He'll snap open. The clasps show me the Brown bottles on row mournfully. He'll tell me that it's my lucky day in a voice that is calm, but decisive and self assured I'll tell him that I want every bottle every last one when I closed my eyes I can see the look of suspicion on his face along with a touch of slightness, the shadow of contempt the beginnings of unbearable hope.

You mentioned that you think of miracle polish as an an Aladdin's magic lamp kind of story. What what did you mean by that? What genie comes out of this lamp? Well, the reason I said that is that as we mentioned a little earlier I teach this class, and I learned from teaching it. It's it's interesting. I watch kids try to write these stories college students, and one of the things that became clear to me on the after teaching it is that when you're writing a story using an image like a like the mirror, the miracle polish one of the things that's happening is the same thing that you would expect that of a love story that is if you put two people together there has to be some kind of interaction, and if it's a say, a vampire, the vampire has the bite you have to put a stake in its heart. It's a racket ship or a time machine. You have to get in there, and it has to take. You somewhere? And so one of the things that that I loved watching Millhauser on the story is creating the interaction with the polish with the merit self and seeing where it was going to take him. And I think the secret of these stories the Aladdin's lamp story, the Snow White story all the stories. We call fairytales is that they invariably lead to one great theme and the theme is transformation. So what do you think is is transformed here? I one of the things I like. Exactly sure what strands form, but it it. If you read Millhauser stories a lot of them are love stories. So one of the things that strikes me about the story is that it's it's an absolutely non romantic unromantic love story. The other thing that Millhauser likes the theme of allusion, and the star is very much about is there an illusion or is there not Lucien going on here in those mirrors? But added to that in this story is there's just that sense of he mentioned that all the time of of disappointment in life of reaching a point in your life, where you're beginning to realize that all your hopes and dreams for it are not going to be realized, and I'm going back to that comment about a story that seems to have many realistic details, even though there's a magical quality to it. Talking about life in that sense of. I think these characters are in their forties. Reeve reached some point. And you're already starting to look at the downhill side of it figures into that question. What what's the theme of the story? How how is it transformed? And it seems to me that the transformation in the story is the realization that there will be no transformation. Or that transformation is itself is loser. Yeah. Yeah. Do you think of this is a kind of parable or metaphor for something? Any kind of images story, whether it's finally magical or whether it's even just stays realism. The image always comes to mean, something more than it self. It always takes on meaning. For me, the story certainly does does do that. I mean, certainly it. It's in some ways story of addiction. You know that he he starts to need this vision of himself and of Monica so much that he can't live without it. I find it. Interesting to see that you can draw parallels to a lot of things, but they don't necessarily go all the way that was one of the features of that. I really loved is that it it refused to be predictable. And the character himself talks about obsession. And then seems to reject the idea. So one of the things that Kirsty reading the story is that as savvy as he seems to regard himself. A skeptical as he seems to regard himself as willing to tell the truth about himself as he seems to think he is one isn't so sure that any of that's very true by the end of the story. What he what he finally does to the Tamada is horrific. Yeah, it's interesting that it's it's sort of plays on the on the story at narcissist. Also, you know, but what seems to fall in love with is not so much own reflection. But maybe Monica's reflection. One of the things about the closure in that story. The way it ends with the mirrors in the on the lawn is that so much of American fiction, even more film. You have a closure. One has a closure violence some kind of violence action occurs. And at the end of the story. These are two very middle class middle aged people. And yet the the violence that Millhauser is able to vote it's more gesture than actually physical. But it it's a kind of violence that I've that I've never seen in an I can't think of another story that that manages to vote violence without, you know, yet another gunfighter fist fighter car chase all those kinds of tired out images. But the the psychological violence in the star is profound. What do you think? He's. Acting out of at the end. I mean as anger is at resentment that he's having to give up this vision for Monica as it. He describes himself repeatedly excited. Right. And he's not an excitable guy. I think you can have different ratings of the story, and I do, but one reading the story for me is that one of the things that strikes me is that they have this undefined or maybe it is defined relationship. And there's there's absolutely no Aratu schism in it whatsoever. She comes over whether suitcase every Friday or something, but she just both of them what they seem to have in common is a willingness for companionship, and a feeling that they that they have things in common to live these kinds of waterdown lives. And yet, it seems as if he's trying to show her something, maybe even blame her for something at the end when the mirrors offer some way to make life more full of hope and more vivid cheery Jackson because she feels it's he's fallen in love with her reflection and that with her. I mean, he's he's clearly trying to hurt her. But he's also trying to show her something that they're giving up. It's it's interesting. You say about the violence of the scene because no one no one gets physically hurt no-one gets physically hurt at the same time. He smashing these mirrors. And he's picturing his blood kind of spurting out of his neck. You know, almost as though he sort of feels he's he's somehow murdering himself, and I suppose if you're smashing a mirror. You are smashing yourself. And then he kind of just annihilates his own vision of Monica. He kind of when he gets in her face. He gets close. He can't see her anymore. You know, he's kind of he's murdered something in her too. Right. But interestingly after she's gone. He's not missing her morning her. He's he's, you know longing for the salesman. The the sales who who seems like a an extra. From any number of magical stories. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, he could be selling magic lamps. He could be selling. Jeez. Just one of those guys pops up. And he enters this realistic story and brings his little badge. Ical object disappears. I want to go back to that opening scene because very first line is I should have said, no, I should have said no to the stranger at the door. And so he knows this. And yet he lets him in invites men. Because he sees his shoes worn and he's in. He looks desperate is that out of generosity visit out a recognition. Well, I had the same take on it that you did which is that without those warrant shoes that guy's getting in the door. But the other thing is that. Although the story doesn't make a big deal out of it. It seems that the way Millhauser writes, it is that his strategy the strategy of this character, which is hardly surprising. Is much kind of strategy that say one might use with a with a panhandler that is out. I'll give you a quarter give you a dollar, and then you have to go. And at the end of the story he plays with that same idea. The the next time the fellow comes it won't be about buying one bottle of miracle polish which justifies having him leave. He wants them. All right, which is funny because doesn't take that much. Be hard to you know, use them all. When he looks in the mirror, and he sees an and suddenly sees himself not looking defeated or disappointed. But as someone who expect something of life or has something to look forward to what's really wrong with that. We might have we? Why shouldn't he be allowed to see himself that way? Well, he asked the same question. Any almost manages to convince me, but I, you know, the the the stories full of ironies one of which is that the way Monica enters the story is that she's coming in there to try to confirm his take on the mirrors in turns out that actually she then becomes the force in the story that that seems to make it a moral decision for him. In rather than a granting permission and sharing it? She creates the conditions where he can't can't have something that seems like you should be able to have them. What what harm are they doing at he continually asks and. His behavior does seem a little. But. At an actually adds kind of interesting of comic touch to the story. Really? When you. There's there's a real cinematic quality to some of these scenes, and when you actually. Kind of take that one little step back that are reader can take. Look at this house now full of all these mirrors. They're almost the kind of an oddly comic effect with. Maybe this is just just his justification. But what he thinks he seeing when he sees Monica in the mirror is is true Monica. You know, the person she was before she was worn down by the the disappointments of life. She thinks he seeing some fantasy version of her that doesn't really exist. Right. Which do you think is right? What do I think is? Right. I think what's I think. What's right is? That mill one of the things that seems Millhauser does is the character that he brings in as. To to witness the effect in the mayor confirms that there is an effect in the mayor. So this is when once Monica arrives in the story, we know that he hasn't totally made this stuff up. She see something different in the mirror as well. But we never know that she really sees the exact same thing that he sees. And the way he defines what he sees in the mirror. He goes out of his way to make sure that the reader doesn't have some kind of simplistic notion that the people in the mirror now, look, sexier like movie stars or anything of the light. The words that he uses over and over again if they don't look disappointed anymore. They don't look the pressed, and it it's really a pretty it's kind of a high wire act for him. For the writer here. And I think he it's one of the branches of the story to actually make sure that we're not just getting some kind of comic book affective looking that mirror. But at the same time, creating enough of a sense that there's something special going. Well, it's interesting that when he when he describes what he I saw in Monica. He makes it quite clear that what drew him to her was her look of disappointment, you know, in the end, the kind of kinship of that, exactly. But we don't know that she really looks that way. Right. He talks about her in the way, he talks about himself and the way he talks about that guy who was selling miracle polish. He seems to notice in people body language and appearances that all lead to defeat, and we really don't know that Monica as necessary accepted that or even sees herself as defeated one of the things that remains unclear to me about the story. But it's a. Indefinite nece that I find a track of about the story is is whether she ever shares that with him, you know, for instances. The day in the story that is most like looking in a mirror is the day. They go to the beach, everything is vivid. It's really pretty much like they're two people. In love cheer, self said. We had a wonderful time at the beach, and yet he can't manage to get back from the beach without ruining that Dan himself. He looks at her hand off. She does all she is sleeping beside her and the position of her hand on her body looks like the feet. And I don't think that if Monica wakes up and looks at her hand, that's what she's thinking. This is actually the guy that she is hooked up with and comes over to see every week. And this is his sensibility. So what he presumes Monica sees. And what she might actually see are. I think are two different things. We also never we never know what? How she sees him look in the mirror. You know, if she prefers the mirror version of him. Kind of you know, drag defeated version of him in real life. She doesn't seem very interested in the difference between. Yeah. Well, that's a great point. I we don't even know that she that, you know, the kind of dragged way he sees himself and the dragged away he sees her. You know, he I mean, he tells us that she doesn't like she likes her fingers, but she doesn't like our knees and so on and so forth. I think all that unusual about that. I mean who who doesn't have take the photograph with the side of my face or wait. I'm having a good hair day or a bad. I mean, it's it's not particularly unusual. But on the other side of all that he takes it a step further. It's always about disappointment and defeat, and I'm I'm not exactly sure that that that step. He takes beyond parents into appearance, meaning defeat and disappointment is shared by Monica. I suppose it's possible to read to read the story thinking that to Monica these are just normal mirrors. And he suddenly put hundreds of the map in his house. She seems to realize that there's something about her in the mirror that he prefers to her. And since we're very clearly told that she doesn't turn into some. Beautiful seductress in the mirror. There must be something that she does see they're in a woman that she doesn't even refer to us herself. She calls her her. But I think it's kind of ambiguous. Yeah. Yeah. People have talked about this story as being like a twilight zone episode. I was thinking that if if it were that then this character would kind of cross over into the mirror world, and maybe have trouble coming back or something. But we'll Houser doesn't push it to that point. He doesn't push it completely into unreality keeps out somehow in the slightly plausible. Yup. Yep. Just right arise that. Yeah. It's that it's that very lack of him falling prey to the temptation to take that step. That makes me admire this story. It seems it seems what he does with. It is way more original than finally to do it. A lot of starry stew, which is. The the character loses himself in his own reflection. Or? Yeah. I just don't know another story that quite goes to the direction that this one does that's very tale without the the happy ending. Thank you so much extent.

Which was Lauren? You're being condescending. No I like the arts are alive. It was a movie theater it was a it was an art house movie theater now. It is a performance venue but it was an art house. Movie Theater at the time wasn't going to the art house movie theater so cool when you were young APPS. Yes it was like. Wow I'm Jan movie that a lot of people don't even know even as a thing. Yeah San Luis Obispo when I was in college and it was like we would just go there everywhere. I mean that was that was. When are you know independent films to were like huge time? It was like you know what I what I find. Very comforting about those movie theaters is that they all have the exact they show the exact same movies right so like you always see a double feature of a hard day's night with the monkeys head that's always tear head with head line within racer movie and head. Why does the Beatles make them? They made a couple of movies do that though they do that. Because people like to be too well because people don't get to see them that much without the Internet and so it'd be like a way to get on them. The moves are actually pretty funny and fun. They have like lines and stuff always being more like a music video. I can't tell whether they're sort of improving but I know they're scripted because they're too funny. Yeah you know what I mean. But there they deliver really yeah. They're good. They're very charming. As praising is bringing is good help is not as good but it's still fun like they were ahead of their time. With like the F-. There's a fight scene that has like Comic Books Down Effects Before Batman did it right and then yellow submarine which is an animated movie. Right as weird and had is not that great in my opinion is very experimental. Very of. It's easier to watch Arnold Schwarzenegger's Eraser and head. It would be just like watching a razor. My aunt had a video that she took at at Oba. Beatles concert like a home movie and then she really back in the day and she wants to the Times burned. Whoa go. Isn't that sad so she took like a super eight movie and see them in Chicago? Yeah would have been Chicago or India but everybody put their video recorders in a bag although super yeah those locked back rerun or rerunning the DOOBIE brothers. You don't understand what we're talking about and we'll we will ask people to ever talk about it from that. Sitcom in the eighties. Yes I know my messing up to things rerun without from what's APP dynamite. Dynamite is is good times. What's rerun what's happening? I'M GONNA look real computer. What's really keep saying it?

GimMe Hey what's and don't I know? This is is he from that. No is he from that. No okay wrong on everything. Okay so rerun dum dum Doo Doo. Rerun smoking a Doobie brothers concert. I don't feel like I really am familiar with this. He was going to. I think you already. And he was approached by a guy. Like hey while you're there could you tape recorded by. I'm a secret concert tapert. Yeah and so he just an old fashioned with an old fashioned reel to reel. I know that a real awards it was it was. Yeah but it was one of those boxy taper. People had their homes had to wear a trenchcoat over it but he he loved the Doobie Brother. Doobie brothers so good that he had to do the rerun dance. Which if you'll remember it was sorta like this. I see of it. And then the tape recorder fell out and spilled out right in front of the DOOBIE brothers. Yes and then all went to the end by the way. They're playing a tiny tiny venue right and I guess it was their old highschool or something. I don't know if we're supposed to think they were all literal brothers. They were family. That went to the funny. They all moved to the edge of the state all pointing at quarter on the. Didn't they come by wherever they used to hang out the next day? Talk to rerun about why that's wrong. Yeah Yeah Rerun. Why was his name? Rerun? It was that before they had reruns of TV shows. They didn't have the technology to run television shows until eighteen that runs. I think it's a serious question. Okay let's look we're all. We're all very upset. I if memory serves he was in some kind of dance crew and that was like his dance name and then it just carried over into the was it based on the word. Rerun from television shows being rea- people did not invent the word rerun no different if it meant something else what you were wondering. I do not know if it meant something else to him. Maybe it meant somebody else but reruns have been around since like you'd be a kid and you go onto rerun since the fifties probably since you were little cool up when they first started star in the sky that took balls like the first time that the first time they've ever had is what we're gonNA show you all one and they didn't get any residuals right.

154 He Could Go All.. the Way!

"Hello and welcome to misinformation Trivia podcast for ladies, Jesse Love Goo Trivia and stick annoying teams as we are your hosts I'm Lauren and I'm Julia Hey Joel High Lord. We're we're still in pandemic mode while we're recording this. Yup We're recording a bunch ahead of time, so you know who knows where we are when this comes out, but. Yeah so in recent weeks in in our current time line where we are right now. It seems that the only like sports thing that has happened in the last I. Don't know four to six months. NFL Draft Oh. People were so excited for the draft. It was finally sports thing is. That is live that we can watch. That means something, and it was just so much like it was basically like zoom screens, and they would show like this. Is this draft persons at their house in this draft person at their house and you know. Maybe they got the call, and then they stood up and cheered, and they were on the camera, and that was like people were so excited, just three. Sports. Just want the, and it's not even playing sports show Yeah Rama's of eventually. Yes, going to be able to play sports. Yes, and I talked with our friend Tara Shout Tara. The other day and she was like I'm so excited I'm so excited and looking forward to tonight. And I was like why she said because the bills are gonNA. Release the schedule for the fall. I was like Oh my God so. Late. So I'm trying to do my best to help. Bring some more sports related content to fill that D- to fill Azam because clearly there. Actually I was inspired from a couple of weeks ago and we talked with Father Brad. And he was talking about the new. Orleans Saints, an this. This one play at our liens superdome that really re revived the city Yup and it really made me think and so today we're doing. He could go all the way. This episode is on famous plays in football history I love this. This is great sell. The things going to be talking about they do come up. Trivia they are frequent references, I know that there's a lot of people out there that don't like sports, and then you go great a sports ball question by up like guys. It's fine. It's fine to like pop culture. Yeah, I like sports. It's fine to be a nerd. Whatever like whatever Ya is not a high Falutin. Thing the way that some o pretend that it is and we don't pretend that it's. You know. Oh, my Gosh! No, it's not sit. Nothing is sacred in trivial so anyway. Little Tangent, no, it's totally and you know what not for nothing I'm not somebody who watches sports on a regular basis, but I can appreciate it because you know what sports is just storytelling. It's another version of storytelling. It's a war. It's a battle. It's a battle of wits. It's a battle of strategies. It can be really engaging in. into thread to have in common with people to say like it's uniting about Buffalo. Bills Fan. You're all high liven rock down the street. Same thing like if I'm Pittsburgh and I. Somebody runs through a stop sign and I go to yell at them, but I see that they're stealing. I much less likely to flip out so. Wow, that's something I learned about you actually. Good I'll. Sure to keep that. It's something we all have in common common thread. ETC, so the thing is when you talk about. They come up a trivia. They are commonly referenced There are some of these things have had like big impacts on the sports, world and broadcasting, and that kind of thing, so oh, yeah. We're GONNA stay with the NFL. And I'M GONNA. Go in chronological order so the first one I'm talking about is called the Heidi game. This is November seventeenth, nineteen, sixty eight, and it was the New York jets versus the Oakland Raiders so. Kind of starts out your run of the mill Sunday. Football game between two rival teams, the jets and the raiders it ends up being notable because of its very exciting finish. Oakland ended up scoring two touchdowns in the final minute of the game to win the game, but the game got its name for a decision made by the Games television broadcaster NBC to break away from its coverage of the game, the East Coast to instead broadcast the television debut of the film Heidi causing many years to miss the raiders comeback so right, yes. Yes I remember hearing about that. At some point. It's like it's a big deal. The people still talk about the say, so. The game was supposed to be televised to most of the country beginning at four PM eastern time with Kurt Gowdy and Algebra. Data's announcing in NBC. Hope that viewers who tune their TV's to the game wouldn't just like end up. Okay, because this is nine, hundred, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, eight by, so they hope that once you are on that channel. You were just GonNa leave that channel on because you would have to get up out of her seat and physically walk over to the television. Channel and the power switch and change the channel selector. You know instead so they were hoping that this good game when keep the audience in their seats to then watch, the game is entirety and then be a perfect lead in for the networks, special presentation of hiding the Joanna Spivey Children's classic, which was scheduled to air after the game at seven PM, Eastern. So under television roles at the time, the jets raiders game was actually blacked out within ninety miles of Oakland. Even though it was a sell out which left the local Oakland NBC affiliate and other NBC affiliates in the nearby markets, unable to actually show the game, so that alone weird role in of itself but Heidi was heavily promoted by NBC and TV commercials and newspaper advertisements. Leading through the newspaper. Oh! Well Joanne fiery. Heidi is going to be on the night at seven PM. So all this advertising and the network hoped again I just have a big audience, especially between families because the network anticipated that families would watch the whole two hour film together. So they sold the block of advertising. To watch manufacturer TIMEX so it wasn't like a bunch of different advertisements like this car commercial. This food like TIMEX bought. All of the ADS for this two hours of the show is basically Heidi presented by time. Yes, so under the terms of the contract between TIMEX and NBC Heidi had air promptly at seven. PM, Eastern six PM Central and could not be delayed or joined in progress for any reason, so Oh, this jetson raiders games going on, and as the fourth quarter began fourth quarter starts, and it's six twenty eastern time an. Ex began to like worry. They were like Oh. No, this game actually might not be over by seven. PM. Around six forty five members of the public began calling NBC and it's affiliates and demanding like your guys are going to show the whole game, right? And then other people were like, but is Heidi GonNa Start on? The. I was reading in the newspaper, so I don't know I don't know what that wasted. So these calls were like jamming. The switchboard's apparently like reportedly blew the fuses and one of the switchboard at prevented decades from talking to each other to resolve the situation, so with one minute and one second remaining in the fourth quarter. My God Burbank Broadcast Operations Control played the closing football theme. and. Walls viewers in the Pacific and Mountain. Time zones ended up actually being able to watch the game to its conclusion, those in eastern and central instead. It's seven. o'clock saw little girl on a Swiss mountain, and we're unaware that Oakland was. Scoring Two touchdowns to win the game. Oh my God. So this came had an influence on sports broadcasting practices. The future NFL would contractually stipulate that game telecasts be shown to their conclusion in the markets of the visiting team while other major leagues and events adopted similar mandates, so you will hear people talk about the Heidi game and the thing that is most ironic about the Heidi game is the TIMEX. Company so Watch Watch company. This rule to go into effect. I mean they started it on time? Did they did indeed started on time so again. That was nineteen, sixty eight. It was the jets verse the raiders the. Raiders ended up winning that game forty three to thirty two. Next near and dear to my heart and. All of those who bleed black and gold on December twenty, third, nineteen, seventy two. We had the immaculate reception. Stella this is also the Oakland raiders versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, so the immaculate reception. It's a play made by Pittsburgh steelers running back Franco Harris. At the end of the Nineteen Seventy, SEVENTY-TWO AFC divisional round playoff game against the Oakland Raiders at three rivers stadium in Pittsburgh with the steelers trailing seventy six in the last thirty seconds of the Game Pittsburgh quarterback Terry Bradshaw threw a pass attempt to Frenchy Fuqua, so the ball either bounced off the helmet of Raider Safety Jack, tatum or off the hands of Fuqua, and as it fell steelers fullback Franco. Harris scooped it up. Like didn't touch the ground. looped it up and ran down the sidelines for a game winning touchdown izing. NFL films has chosen as the greatest play of all time as well as the most controversial actually so the play was also selected as the greatest player in NFL history in the NFL networks, hundred series, and the play was a turning point for the steelers who? I therefore decades of futility with their first playoff whenever and then they went on to enforce super bowls by the end of the nineteen seventies. You know no big deal. Startup so big deal Pittsburgh in when you. Are Flying through the Pittsburgh airport if we're ever allowed to fly again, and. You're coming down and you're going to baggage claim. There are two statues that greet you. There's one of president Washington. Crossing the river. I don't know and then another of Franco Harris. Recreating the Immaculate Reception It's great. That's amazing. It's great, so steelers game thirteen to seven, and it was against on. December twenty eighth nineteen seventy five. We have A. we have a play called the Hail Mary. Yes, so this is the Dallas cowboys versus the Minnesota Vikings at this game, and with twenty four seconds left in this very important Game Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger, Staubach hurled desperation pass for fifty yards down. The field to receiver Drew Pearson for the go ahead score and the cowboys ended up winning the game seventeen fourteen. After the Game Staubach was quoted as saying I closed my eyes and said a Hail Mary. Perfect. IVAX game comments about the player thought to have popularized hail, Mary as a football term, and you hear it all the time now. You're like okay. There's three seconds left. You know they're not going to win the game, but whatever he could throw a hail Mary and that's where the that's where it came from came from. starbucks saying this as you know a prayer. But. So that was the first time that the term was popularized and the cowboys beat the vikings seventeen fourteen. Right one that. Dear old engineer Josh isn't doesn't love November nineteenth, nineteen, seventy eight. This is the miracle at the meadowlands. So this is Eagles versus the New York giants. Right so the giants, their heads seventeen twelve. This like this is like the end of the game. By the way, giants are up seventeen twelve. They could easily run out the final seconds of the game. They had the ball. The Eagles had no timeouts left, and if you're familiar with like the last two minutes of any kind of football game, you know you know okay well, they can do time outs. They can just run up time off the clock Blah so anyway. On third into with less than thirty seconds left in the game quarterback, Joe, his arch ick botched an attempt to hand off the football to fullback Larry, CSONKA, so instead like he went to hand this off to him so that he could like. Run out. You know the ball essentially instead Philadelphia cornerback herm Edwards picked up the drop ball and ran twenty six yards for the winning, or so at the time there was no kneel down rule, and with the giants victory, all, but assured the CBS commentator had begun to read the end credits for the game like saying well. Thanks to Joe Smith on the truck in the sky on the field, and he had to like change his reading. The. Credits into like play. Call with like actually. Dropped the ball and he fumbled the ball and. Turns Med words you. GotTa touchdown so. The week after the game both the Giants Eagles implemented a new offensive formation to be used in the end of the game as part of town, so it's properly called the victory formation or their victory offense so. You'll see this happen in games nowadays like okay. There's twenty seconds left on the clock whatever they're just going to kneel down like pretending. The ball protected forty. Yeah! Don't hand it off to anybody. Just stay there. Yes, so this game legitimize the quarterback, Neil coaches everywhere took heat of the giants, fate, and immediately begin strict and quarterbacks to sit on the ball, and similar situations, so kneel down is basically primarily used to run the clock down, either the end of the first half of the game itself in order to preserve lead so I ended up getting like a loss of a yard or down to do that, but again you're minimizing the risk of a fumble. Giving the chance has recovering that so. A team could actually run off over two minutes with three straight kneel downs, if the defensive team has no more timeouts, so it is a strategy now. Some peop- some purist like just a waste of time and whatever but anyway. Steve doesn't understand it, Steve. He has an irrational hatred of running out the clock. Just play the game. Yes, what your there? Well, that's what we're on the New York. Giants would argue. It is, it's called miracle at the Meadowlands, because it took place like Philadelphia had no chance to win this game, and then this crazy ass fumble at the giant stadium caused this to happen, so remember miracle at the Meadowlands, November seventy eight eagles, giants eagles one, thousand, nine, hundred seventeen, and also the giants fans often refer to this play as the fumble. Remembering along. We're in January tenth nineteen, eighty, two. We have the catch. Woo Ready, so this is cowboys versus Francisco Forty niners. As part of the NFL playoffs nineteen eighty-one NFL season with fifty eight seconds left in the game, and the forty niners, facing a third and three San Francisco Wide Receiver Dwight Clark made a leaping grab in the back of the end zone to complete a six yard touchdown pass from quarterback Joe Montana, which gave the forty Niners, a twenty eight to twenty seven win over the cowboys, so it's called the catch. Catch the ball. Ball all the time they caught the lots of times before, and since, but the catch is widely regarded as one of the most memorable events in NFL. History. It came at the end of a fourteen play eighty three yard drive engineered by Montana and when you watch when you re, watch this you're like. Was He even trying to throw the ball to Dwight Clark or was he just Salah? Yeah, it was just like. It was only six yard. There's something as pass, okay. We're talking about like other guys that like throw eighty four yard pastelle. This is a six yard touchdown. Pass it third and three and some people are like he was just trying to get rid of the ball and then like gopher. Tried to get it on fourth down instead but. This go forty niners, where the recipients of the catch, and they won the game twenty to twenty seven interesting. Cool all right. So we went for. We had the catch now. We have the drive on January eleventh nineteen seven. This is the DENVER broncos verse the Cleveland Browns. The drive was an offensive series. In the fourth quarter of one, thousand, nine, hundred six AFC championship game played at Cleveland Municipal Stadium Broncos. quarterback John elway in the span of five minutes, and two seconds led his team ninety eight yards down the field and fifteen plays to tie the game with thirty seven seconds left in regulation. Thanks to a touchdown by Mark Jackson, so Denver won the game in overtime making a thirty three yard field goal pulling off a three two twenty. Win Over the Cleveland Browns. This ninety eight yard drive ranks as football prototypical clutch performance. So you will, you'll hear people talk about this today. One fun fact that drive was featured in the movie. Hot Tub time machine. Okay, so they go back in time or in January nineteen eighty-seven, but and they're saying in the in the movie due to the Butterfly Effect. They distracted Mark Jackson. starring. Mark Jackson was distracted by a squirrel and he failed to catch a pass and Cleveland went on to win the game and so. That's just. Like like it was big enough deal in the one thousand nine hundred. This ended up getting into. The? The classic film last film, Hot Tub Time Machine, which I've seen multiple times at this point i. Never seen it. I guess I have to see it now since you've seen it so Yeah, it's it's funny. Oh, yeah, I hear. It's funny. It's certainly again I sometimes i. don't see movies, not because I have no in interest is just doesn't happen to me. Seek them out fairly well, speaking of something that happened to you, January, twenty, seventh ninety-one. WHY RIGHT NO ABOUT TAX! We'll give you the heads. We'll tell you when you tune back in your. So this is the buffalo bills vs New York giants at the end of Super Bowl. twenty-five with eight seconds left in the game. The buffalo bills trailed the New York. Giants by a single point they called for kicker Scott Norwood to try a forty seven yard field goal, which would win the game and the championship for the bills. Okay, but forty seven yards it was considered near the limit of Norwood's kicking range particularly on a grass field at the time. So He's tried. At eight seconds left in the game. The kick had sufficient distance, but it passed about a foot to the right of the right hand goalpost, Oh and the goal attempt failed television sportscaster. AL MICHAELS calling the game for ABC announced the occurrence to a stunned television audience, no good wide right, the giants then took possession with four seconds, left and ran out the clock free. Victory Bills Fans also call this the miss. The bills lost their first of four consecutive Super Bowl Games, and this was the closest team got as the next three. Super Bowls ended with the bills losing by. Considerable margin suitable amounts of points. Yes, the Youtube Song. Stuck in a moment. is about this. I didn't know that Yeah Yeah that song stuck in a moment. The can get out of it. It's about that it's about Scott Norwood. Scott Norwood it wasn't now all his fault. Not But. If I. Remember correctly that the town. Really he was run out. Yes, we're man. so yeah, that was the giants beat the bills in the Super Bowl and that one twenty, two nineteen. I'm sorry bills fans. This isn't going to get any better. No because. January eighth two thousand. We have the music city miracle. That's the Tennessee titans versus the Buffalo. Bills. This took place during the NFL's nine, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety two thousand playoffs, occurring at the end of the AFC. Wildcard playoff game at Adelphia Coliseum in Nashville Tennessee the bills on third down kicked. A field goal was sixteen seconds left on the clock to take a sixteen to fifteen lead. They were pretty much all celebrating at that point, but on the ensuing kickoff return tighten. Tighten state and frank, wide check through a lateral pass across the field to Kevin Dyson, who then ran seventy five yards for the winning touchdown to earn a twenty two to sixteen victory? There is a lot of controversy among bills fans whether the gas from why check dyson was really a lateral, or if it was a forward pass, which would have made it illegal but again. It's just. It's you know. It's a real. It has become part of the personality of the whole city and its fans. It's just. It's just a shame is what it is so stahl. Sorry Music City Miracle. Titans win twenty two to sixteen. Speaking of laterals December, twenty, first, two, thousand three. We have the river city relay, and this isn't. This is insane if you don't know what this is, this is insane so I. Don't Know Orleans Saints I the Jacksonville Jaguars. All, right there are seven seconds left at the end of regulation in this case. Seconds left. The Jaguars are up twenty to thirteen on the saints. The Saints are on their own twenty five yard line. They have second down and ten, but there's only seven seconds left in the game. They're on their own twenty five yard line. They're down my seven points quarterback Aaron. Brooks passed the ball of the right side of the field to receiver Dante Stallworth. He caught the pass at midfield. He bounced off a tackle attempt. He turned inside. He broke a few more tackles, so the clock was already zero. There's no time left on the clock and that's okay because you're in the middle of the play. The plays happening. It's okay, so so solid had this ball? Clock reached zero. He pitched the ball to the thirty four yard. To Michael Lewis for his team, who then ran the ball to the twenty five yard line of Jacksonville, he then turned and threw the ball to deuce mcallister, who ran to the Jaguars 20-yard-line mcallister, then throw the ball to the right side of the field to jerome path on who caught the ball, the twenty four yard line of Jacksonville and he dove into the end zone. It's okay if you're not the quarterback, it's okay if you throw the ball as long as it's not a forward, pass it can. Yes, at the same yard line or behind is fine so anyway. This was like three laterals, okay. Seen this. Ever happen. There's a lengthy delay while the officials determined that every ball transfer after the past was indeed legal, and my eldest saints needed was a John Carney extra point to send the game into overtime, so they did all this craziness. Nineteen. They just need that extra point to get the to get the game into overtime. Okay, so John Carney lineup to kick the extra point. In, the kick sailed wide right. Oh there's a very famous reaction of the saints. play by play radio announcer. Jim Henderson with just like a horrified scream like. Wide. Right Oh my God. How could he do that? So, so the saints they understood. Some of the bills feelings. Because, even after all that madness, Jacksonville hung on to win that game twenty two nineteen while. That's insane can't believe that that happened. Really Fun. That's a really fun. Play like watch. The highlights of. All, right speaking of the saints. September twenty fifth two, thousand six. We have Yeltsin's blocked punt It's also called rebirth. So this is the Atlanta Falcons versus the New Orleans Saints, and again as Father Brad recapped in his New Orleans episode The saints had returned to the Superdome after Hurricane Katrina on Monday, night football in week, three of the two thousand six NFL season so again they're away from New Orleans playing away from New Orleans for the whole. Whole season, the saints went three and thirteen that year like fans were like freaking out? Yeah, they were totally awaiting like their what their new quarterback drew brees would be like and their new head coach. Sean Payton would be like so Saint Safety Steve Gleason was responsible for one of the most dramatic and memorable moments in saints history when he blocked a punt by Atlanta Falcons Punter Michael Keenan early in the first quarter of the game at the superdome. So, Curtis Deluge recovered the ball in the falcons end zone for a touchdown. It was the first score in the Saints First Game in New Orleans in nearly twenty one months. So it was intense like. Yeah like as as Father Brad said like it's just like lifted the spirits of everybody in the city, either like we're going to be okay, turns out this drew brees guy ain't that bad. So. Yeah and Steve gleason is like really important figure to the city to in September twenty eleven the same year that he announced his diagnosis of having LS he was awarded a super bowl ring by the saints, and at the same ceremony he was given the key to the city of New Orleans by the Mayor and July Twenty twelve rebirth statue, depicting Leeson blocking the punt was raised outside the superdome. Some big deal for them. All right February third, two thousand eight. We have the helmet catch. I don't think I know okay. So this is the New York giants I. The New England Patriots in Super Bowl forty two during the final two minutes to this game. quarterback Eli Manning escaped from the grasp of three New England Patriots defensive players, and through afford pass on third down and David tyree made a leaping catch. He caught the ball with one hand, and then press the ball against his helmet. Down, like. They couldn't get both hands on the ball. He had one hand on the ball and press it to his head to keep it from falling sliding office. So the play was a thirty two yard gain, and it led to the game winning touchdown with thirty nine seconds left, and was instrumental in the giants, seventeen to fourteen upset victory, over the Patriots, and that was the year that the Patriots had went sixteen and know during the season. Yeah, so they were undefeated during the season, and they were on the verge of becoming the first NFL team to finish like going through the not only the regular season, but also the play offs. Oh, the giants spoiled that for them and. Yet you love to see it. And NFL films Steve Sobol called it the greatest play. The Super Bowl has ever produced who? Yeah. It's it's. It's neat to watch that, so that's called the helmet catch. So, we talked about the miracle at the meadowlands. We also have the miracle at the new meadowlands. On December Nineteenth, twenty ten engineer Josh is his rubbing his face right now. Why say those so? This is again. The Philadelphia Eagles New York giants at the giants new stadium. Right. December nineteenth, twenty ten with just eight minutes left to play in the fourth quarter. The Eagles trailed the giants by twenty one points. What's okay, so the giants are up by twenty one points with eight minutes left in the game. The Eagles went on to score four unanswered touchdowns in the final seven minutes and twenty eight seconds of play. Including a punt return for a touchdown by the Sean Jackson as time expired to Sean Jackson became the first player in NFL history to win a game by scoring on a punt return as time expired. The Egos Eagles one, thirty eight to thirty one. Oh. My God, did the I'm sorry, it's it's as if the giants did. They just lay in the grass. Took a nap for the last year of the game wow. So yeah by. Giants fans tend to call this game. The punt because that's what happened to go wrong. In a similar way that miracle at the meadowlands was known as the fumble, but yeah both of the meadowlands incidents took place the eagles, and the giants, and unfortunately the giants did not come out victorious. That's rough. That's rough. And, then finally, speaking of fumbles and the NFL. My my favorite and probably yourse- The Butt Fumble. On November twenty. Second Twenty Twelve So. This is the New England patriots versus the New York jets. In this game, the jets quarterback Mark Sanchez collided with the rear end of his teammate, offensive Lineman, brandon, more causing a fumble, which was then recovered by the Patriots Safety Steve Gregory in return for a touchdown. So this play was the centerpiece of disastrous sequence in the second quarter, where the jets lost three fumbles, and the Patriots scored three touchdowns. On offense defense and special teams all in the span of fifty two seconds of game. That's embarrassing is often considered one of the most inept plays in NFL. History is also ranked as the most embarrassing moment in jets history by ESPN. But fumble fumble. That's a shame. To see it. And then I just had a couple from college football. I wanted to talk about you. So in college football. November twentieth, nine, hundred, eighty, two. We have the play. I mean. Let's let's get a little. Connie. Nineteen two. They took it the play they took. This is the Stanford Cardinal Versus the California golden bears so when I started talking about this, you will know what I'm talking about. Okay Stanford Right. There's four seconds left in this game champ. Stanford has a twenty two nine thousand nine league. They got a field goal. There's four seconds left. The golden bears used five lateral passes on the ensuing kickoff return ended up scoring the winning touchdown with no time left for twenty five to twenty victory members of the Stanford Band came onto the field midway through the kickoff return, believing that the game was over which added to the confusion and the folklore of the game. You have almost certainly heard the call. The band is out on the field. Go to the end zone the bears one. So the initials ruling of CAL touchdown was highly controversial at the time, and they'll play has remained a source of shall we say intense disagreement in the last few decades, especially between Stanford California fans so the controversy centers on the legality of two of their five laterals, as well as the chaos that ensued when the Stanford team and marching band entered the field while the ball is still alive, so that's a very very famous college football game end. The Band is on the field while the GUY is trying to run into the end zone. Yeah. Right November twenty, nine, hundred, nineteen, four, we have. A play called the Hail flutie. Also Call Flutie Hail Flutie also called them your hone Miami, so this is the Boston College Eagles versus the Miami Hurricanes. So Boston College with Doug, Flutie at quarterback jumped out to an early fourteen nothing lead in the first quarter before Miami. Led by quarterback Bernie, Kosar stormed back to tie the game. So the two quarterbacks like this is apparently like a really really great game. They had fifty nine completed passes in total like more than nine hundred yards thrown in total five touchdowns total like that's. That's pretty high. With twenty eight seconds left in the Game Boston College trailed forty five to forty one. There are three quick plays. The took the Boston College Eagles from their own twenty yard line down to the hurricanes 48-yard-line. Doug flutie called the fifty five flood tip play, which the receivers were supposed to run straight routes into the end zone. They were then supposed to try to actually tip the football to another receiver like Kinda bad just to somebody else, and with six seconds left on the clock flutie scrambled back into his right narrowly, averting Zach as time expired, he threw the football from his own thirty seven yard line, which would have meant sixty three yards to the endzone against thirty mile an hour winds by. By the way what again, he'd already thrown the football like forty five times during this game, the Miami defensive backs didn't think that he would be able to throw the ball into the end zone with six seconds left on the clock from that far away, so they didn't pay any attention to wide receiver Gerald Phelan, as he rian behind them. The ball came straight down over the massive players untouched into Phelan's arms for the Boston College Eagles to win the game forty seven to forty five. Wow! Apparently a really. A really great, really great game, a really great play. WE'VE THE EARTHQUAKE GAME October. Eighth Thousand, nine, hundred eight. This is the Auburn. Tigers for the lsu tigers. So Auburn led this football game. Six nothing with less than two minutes left in the fourth quarter. This sounds Super Boring for a college football game, okay? LSU's quarterback Tommy Hodson drove the team down the field before throwing an eleven yard, touchdown pass to Eddie Fuller on fourth down, and the lsu tigers upsetting number four auburn by a score of seven to six. Crazy right. No well. The Games name, which the earthquake game resulted from the reaction of the crowd after the final pass, which registered as an earthquake by a seismograph located in Lsu's how Russell Geoscience Complex get out. Get Out. So apparently like. The crowd went wild, just stop in and screaming and jumping, and whatever they won the game. They upset this team, and then like a couple of days later, somebody in like geoscience lab was like. And then they calculated it and figure it out. That is when it happened in a kind of like. Build itself up in lower like there's other. ESPN was on campus filming something like the next year and you know it came up and then it became this big lake. then. It really was at the time. It wasn't anything, but they refer to that as the earthquake game. And then last, but not least. The kick six, this took place on November, thirtieth twenty, thirteen. This is the Alabama Crimson tide, the Auburn Tigers so. It's the seventy eighth is bowl. It's like college. Big College Championship game featuring number one ranked in two time defending national champion Alabama Crimson tide as a ten point favorite. For ranked Auburn Tigers. So after falling behind the second quarter, and then again in the fourth quarter, Auburn rallied late to tie the game twenty eight to twenty eight with thirty two seconds remaining. After the next Kickoff Alabama quickly moved to the Auburn thirty eight yard line at which point. The clock ran out seemingly sending the game into overtime. But Alabama coach Nick Sabin challenged the timekeeping call, and after a video review, they put one second back on the clock. You're like okay one second whatever? Technically, so the Crimson tide lineup for potential game winning fifty seven yard field goal. They're like okay. Whatever like we could? If we don't make. Overtime right. Yeah, however, the kick was short. Auburn's Chris Davis, who'd been positioned near the goal line, caught the ball in front of the goal posts, and then he ran across the entire field through players from both teams, the opposite end zone, scoring the winning touchdown for Auburn on its last play the game. There's no time left on the clock. Obvious No. The runback was technically about one hundred nine yards. And is officially could only be considered one hundred. Return according to the NCWA rules, but this was like just apparently so impressive in the radio announcer was like. It's GonNa win the football. I hope you like on my impressions that was. Football game. No, it was just so like improbable that this this would've even happened, but ended up winning Auburn when the football game thirty four twenty eight on a hundred nine yard. Return for A. Field, goal. That was too short. Amazing, that's amazing so. Those are some football plays that I want. Those are great. Thank you so much. Fun like like watching the clips. Once again Steph just. In hearing like like when you hear like a really surprised announcer. It's the best so great, surely the best thing. All right so. So I was like okay. Not Everybody likes my sports. Not Everybody likes sports episode I was like. When I do quiz I WANNA do a quiz on like the opposite of football. Sure so, but I don't know what that is.

Question Five, this country's flag has three equal bands of green, black and yellow with a Red Isosceles. Triangle on the left side centered in the triangle is a yellow five, pointed star under a cross, AK47 and A. On an open white book if you're in Maputo, you're under the flag of what country. Alternatively, what's the only countries flag with an AK47 on it? I'm the. PUTO makes it sound like it's an African country to me. So I don't know I'm GONNA. Say The Democratic Republic of Congo. Not In the rate region this, Mozambique Zambia. So, so they have a lot of. Their flag green is the riches of the land. White is peace black? The African continent yellow is the country's minerals and red is their struggle for independence. There is an AK47 rifled symbolizing defense and vigilance. There's a Ho referring to the country's agricultural ISM and the open book stresses the importance of Education and then there's also a star representing Marxism internationalism. Okay, so this is one of only two national flags, featuring and firearm. The other. I didn't know there were. Others Wada Maula so Guatemala's flag has a pair of crossed rifles, symbolizing Guatemala's willingness to defend itself as well as a pair of crossed swords symbolizing honor. So you'll see a lot of swords and staffs and Scher even spears things like that on on countries, flags, but the only ones with firearms. Mozambique with an AK47 and Guatemala, which has rifles on it. Seems scary but sure. Questions. There are three countries with dragons on their flags. One is the land of Song. One is a European island, and one is a very happy country in Asia. Can you name me two of them? I will throw in a milkshake in bonus points if you get all three. Okay one is the land of Song. One is a European island. And one is a happy country in Asia guess. Happy country in Asia. The one of them Thailand Mellow, shoot. K. The land of Song. MILKSHAKES. So this Asian country is is widely known as being the happiest country on Earth. Like I wasn't doing a play on words they're they. Are they measure? They measure their country success by their Gross National. Happiness or something oh my gosh. Oh is one of the Malta. One of them is Malta. Yes, okay, got Malta one. In! The BOOP boop. Happy he shouldn't country. The Philippines now. Shoot, is it Indonesia? No shoot is allow. I. I didn't say Asia was an island. Oh right right. Oh shoot I don't know. All right. How about? How about in Great Britain is there a flag? With A. It's a European islands right. You said Okay. That was Malta. That was not an island with Malta. Okay, so you're saying land of Song. Ireland! Shoot. Just tell us. Oh, Wales poop. Of course they've got a dragon. Lindor real still. Actually, you got the most Obscure One Wales's straight up a big red dragon on on a white and green stripe background. Bhutan is the happiest country in the world. You know what damn it. Earlier. Yeah of course I called back so Bhutan slag is. It's there's a diagonal. Split of colors like a Goldenrod, and like an orange or burnt orange on the background, and then across the middle is a. Black and white Asian dragon with on top of balls with his feet so very very bolt there. The one I think the hardest is is the Malta because Malta's flag shows the George Cross, which is the second word of the United Kingdom honor system, and on the emblem of the George Cross. It's it's teeny tiny up in the left hand corner. It does have the effigy of Saint George and the dragon surrounded by the words for Gallantry, so multiple slag is like it's a rectangle. The left side is white. The right side is read in the on the white side and the upper left corner. There's a tiny. With a tiny Saint Jordan. Tiny Dragon. Well, you know you got the hardest one I've got the hardest one. All right question seven, this red flag with a trace skeleton of legs, joined at the thigh, bent, the knee, pointing clockwise with stars for Spurs at their heels, is explained by the legend that a great warrior repelled an invasion by transforming into the three legs, rolling down a hill, defeating the invaders. You can buy that story if you want to. In pounds sterling since the country is a crown dependency in the Irish Sea. What is its name? That is the Isle of Man. It sure is Yep. I love the Queen. Elizabeth the second is the head of the island man and she's called the Lord of Mann. The title when you're in charge in each and eighty one, the Isle of Man Parliament Tynwald became the first national legislative body in the world to give women the right to vote in a general election. But only if you were single is excluded married women for some reason I don't know. JEEZ So anyway. If you see this flag, it's it looks really weird. It's very weird thing, but don't confuse it. With Sicily's flag because Sicily's flag depicts the head of Medusa in three years we on top of three legs, bent with toes, pointing clockwise. Those the three legs of the Sicilian flag are caught a three in Chrea. Clean trying you. Know. You know what that was phenomenal. Said to represent the three points of the island, which is triangular in shape so if you look at these flags next to each other. The I love man's is just three legs and the. The. Sicily one has the head of Medusa and three years of wheat on top of these legs to. Clean cle-. We're still don't know what you're trying to spell it for me. I, men a C. R.. Is that all one word Yeah Oh, yeah, you got it Trina Korea. Got It. It's called try skeleton. Is An art motif term I. There are like three things. That that make up a symbol so I'm guessing. It's like the Italian version of that. Basically. Questioning believed to be the oldest continuously used national flag in the world. This flag wielded by kings of its home country since the fourteenth century features shifted white. Cross on a red background. If you were visiting Queen Margrethe's second, who's been reigning monarch since nineteen, seventy, two or the headquarters of Lego in what? Would you be. Is, that Switzerland, no, no! Was So sure. So! Oh Noah. Oh, no is Sweden! It's not Sweden now It's an off center white cross on a red background. Yeah, I mean I can see it in my brain's. Why did I think Switzerland? Now you know what I was, so I was so positive with that. That I wrote Switzerland that I didn't think about it again, Who's where's Lego? I, know that's what I'm trying to think. Where is Lego? You just didn't episode on it and say you just just one hundred episodes of last year. Poop, where is it? is on the European, continent. Yeah Oh Shit A. Part of Europe yeah. Denmark is dead, Mark Okay. See Jesus, I'm sorry so the. Flag is officially called the Dannebrog da e. b our og. Shifted Cross Design Element was subsequently adopted by the other Nordic countries of Finland Iceland Norway Sweden Denmark proper, which is the southern most of the Scandinavian countries consists of a peninsula jutland, and in an archipelago of four hundred forty three named islands, the largest being Zealand in Nineteen, sixty, nine Denmark was the first country to legalize pornography. Congratulations Race Job Denmark and for more on lego checkout episodes sixty four. Like. For a second. For more for McAfee. You know what to do. Please you don't need our instructions. Question Nine, this perfectly square flag consists of two vertical half's on the left solid yellow, signifying specific rulers, spiritual power, and the white right side, which shows a Thira to cross keys, one silver, one gold, neither pearly, and a Red Cord, connecting the keys in what country with a population of about eight hundred twenty five. Would you see this flag? That's the Vatican yes Vatican City. It is one of only two square flags, the other the flag of Switzerland. Damn use! And finally question ten Leeann Blue with a golden triangle below a black arrowhead. This country's flag somewhat resembles the starfleet emblem.

Greatness of God // He Leads Me (Part 2)

"Everybody this is Keith Roy I'm the founding senior pastor of celebrate church in Sioux Falls South Dakota, and this is our podcast I just WanNa. Say thank you for joining us and it is my prayer that this week's message would truly encourage you enjoy. So I, have to tell you the story. There's a story about a Golden Retriever, a German shepherd and a cat that all died and went to heaven. Think, you're gonNA appreciate this story. Okay. Well of course God who created them, greets them at the pearly gates and says, welcome. But before you enter I, need to ask what do you believe Well the golden retriever went first and said, well I believe that. To be man's best friend. and. So I just felt the need always be by his side and and be there in love on him and guy was like, well, that's that's good. I'm going to have you sit right here next to me on my right side. Within the German Shepherd said well I believe the same that I need to be man's best friend but I felt the need to protect and into know that he's always safe when I'm with him and Gaza Wa. That's good. That's really good. I'M GONNA. Have you sit right here on my left side? and. So he looks at the cat and says, what do you believe in the cat says well, I believe you're sitting in my chair. Phil Out of truth to that isn't it but here's why I say that. I think if we're honest were a lot like the cat. I think I think sometimes we think were sit in God's chair. I don't say that to be mean or rude. I'm just saying when you look how we live. That's a reality. In fact, let me help you with something. That's big right now in our world and that's the goat. WHO's the greatest of all time? The goat now can I just ask if this is a big deal to you? Who Cares? I mean when it's all said and done in fact, let me just say this way. My Bible, says, there's only one who's the greatest of all time and that will never be any of us. And that's already been determined. and My Bible says at the greatest of all time every knee will bow and every tongue confess that he is the greatest of all time but I don't think that's what Jesus was trying to do because I find it interesting that people want to know the goat. They're chasing the go and if we can't be the go at least we can vote for who we think should be the go right. But just to play on this. My Bible says all goats go to hell. I find it interesting. And that we were never called to be goats, we are called to be sheedy. Which I believe stands for somebody help experiencing eagle problems. Okay. Because that's what it really means to be a sheep when we finally humble ourselves and recognize we need a shepherd. Fair. It's a big deal in by the way why we are in this series on the goodness of God how do we live that out looking at psalm twenty three because here's the problem with the goat thing. Because if we're trying to be great of all time of which we can never achieve because there's already been established. Here's the deal. Do you find it interesting that when we finally like the cat get into the chair? The chair is never enough. Which I find interesting because God who's in the chair? That is enough. So God's okay being God but when we get to be. We still want other gods. I just find that very interesting about her heart. There's always another mountain to climb. There's always something more we want. We're never satisfied. Until we finally realized that. God is in the rightful chair. And when we learned to be the sheep of his pasture, it's then. That we have everything we need. Amen to that. So if you've got your bibles. If, you would to psalm twenty three. Psalm twenty three. Now while you're going there, we're going to read it a little bit later in the message and look at it again. But I wanNA talk about five basic needs that we all have. Okay. Now here's what I find interesting. These five basic needs are the same needs that she path. Okay. We all have five basic needs and we began last week talking about the Lord. Is My shepherd I have every thing I need or as little sally said it. The Lord is my shepherd I don't need anything else. And I think she got it right. But. There's five needs that we all have that I think we need to wrestle with and deal with. So here's the first one is the need for sedition. See the need for sufficiency. Now, Jason Leeann says these words. It was spring. But I wanted summer the warm days in the great outdoors. But it was summer and I wanted fall the colorful leaves and the cool dry air. It was now fall but I wanted winter the beautiful snow and the joy of the holiday season. And then it was winter but I wanted spring. The warmth and the blossoming of nature. I was a child. But I wanted to be an adult. The freedom and the respect. I turned twenty but I wanted to be thirty. To be mature and sophisticated, which I find interesting because I've never met a thirty year old anyway. I was middle aged. But I wanted to be twenty again. You know the youth and the Free Spirit. And then I was retired but I wanted to be middle aged the presence of mind without limitations and then. My life was over. I never got what I wanted. Boys at a picture of reality. Isn't it? It's such a picture because if we're honest, we all seem to have this unquenchable if I can call it this disatisfaction have you ever noticed that or let me say it another way? UNAPPEASED. Restlessness. It's crazy especially in this country would you agree that? It's like nothing is never enough. and. That's a problem. And I will say this any yet it robs us of so much. It just robs us and by the way according to bio. It not robs us. But it also keeps God from releasing in us. What he really desires. This need for sufficiency. But I wanNA say something I. Don't want you to miss this the green green grass of the home we desire. Is Never on the other side of the fence. I say all the time. If the grass is greener on the other side of the fence you can bet the water bills higher too. That's just a fact. But. The grass is green where you water it. And My. Bible says the Lord is my shepherd. I've watered the grass with everything that you need. For always looking at the fence, aren't we we're always looking over the fence and we'll say like this it it's better off well, it may look better off. And you may think that someone else has a better deal but I'M GONNA clarity you right now you're ready for this. The grass is only greener. Where the Good Shepherd is allowed to be. The grass is never greener. Where you want the Good Shepherd to be. The grass is only green. With a good shepherd is. See here's what the Bible says in Second Corinthians God is able to make all grace abound in. You notice that God is able to make all grace abound to you ready for this. So that always having all sufficiency in everything. The Lord is my shepherd. I need anything else. I've a need for sufficiency and I find it in the fullness of him. In fact, someone's this way the secret to life the full life. Is Not having what you want. But wanting what you already have. Now, that works and everything. You want a good marriage. The way the good. Shepherd. made it. You ready for this. A good marriage is not having what you want. It's wanting what you. Are have. My wife is everything I. Need because she was given me my God and God as the center of our marriage and he's the Good Shepherd IV everything I need some exempt. When you understand that the secret TOFA life is not having what you want. But wanting what you have and my question is, do you really want? The Good Shepherd And maybe even deeper question is. Do. You even have him. As the Good Shepherd. Through your mind right now. when you said we're always looking for the next best thing Roaster Phil God shaped hole in our heart. we're trying to fill it with everything that's of the Earth obviously God, is not of the earth. So nothing is going to fully fill out all. You also said, you know we're looking forward to the next season. I've noticed just in my life when I was younger I wanted to be you know older I wanted to be eighteen I, wanted to be twenty one that I wanted to be twenty-five and. Then when I got to about thirty then it's like, okay I wish I was twenty one I wish I was eighteen. Since my kids are the same way I just wish older well, no, you don't because when you are you're GonNa to wish that you took. You know. you. You wish that you would have enjoyed that more because when you're always looking ahead, we're looking back you're missing out on. Today and that's the president. That's the gift that you're giving. You know that's what you're missing out on. So People fall into the Trap of Destination Addiction. were, they always have an addiction again, it's a good work could test the nation addiction. They want to get to that next destination and when they get there, they think they're going to be happy but they're not. So then they have the next destination, they WANNA, get to just like climbing the highest mountain, and then you find there's another mountain that's higher cycle. Now got to climb that one. Then You keep finding Nemo Higher Mountains than you've got to keep playing those until. There's nothing that really there's satisfy until you have gotten your heart to fill that hole phil what's missing? Let's last week we went to see the big sunflower. Fields. and. I had a memory from a few years ago when I was in Africa. And we've driven out at night and so the next day when we came driving back, all the sunflowers were open but I mean the since thousands of acres sold for the hour and a half drive up to the sunflower place I was just all twit just. See it was so excited and honestly not much bigger than this room was the patch of some. That we driven to and I was so disappointed. Now, I was delighted I had an hour and a half of expectation that was just filling my heart with joy. But I, fell from a high place to a little place. When I saw that little field, my gratitude no longer was there at all it was just books. So. I think that's the way it is sufficiently. Do we think if we learn more get better at do it more often we're going to be proud of ourselves or we're going to have accomplished something great but really it's the journeys. That's greatness not the. Not The rest of it. I find a problem with expectations or addiction. We're talking to destination diction is the reality is is never reality you know what? When you get there it because obviously we're dry season right now and so a lot of lawns are looking a little bit less than what they would normally look because it's been super dry. That was on a walking area Norman Walk Night. Long looks great. Looks so green. That is a great look a lot and I got there sure is total wheat. But it was greener than green. Grass in it I, don't think but it was Greece could be. Man That's that's the way it is in life. What I think is going to be there when I get there. Isn't what it is because I put an expectation that is real. The second need that we have. So we have the need for sufficiency, but we all have this need for security. Don't we the need for security? In fact, I this kind of kind of amazing that every one of God's creation. In, the animal world has some sort of defense mechanism in it. Did you know that? It except sheep. And chickens. Ironic. Neither one of them were given. Any kind of defense they like do helpless animals I mean. SPIDERS and snakes have venom and poison at least some and if they don't have it just their sheer presence. Creates a sense of defense. Would you agree with that? How about lions? or any type of cat in that world they have a huge roar big teeth that are usually if you will many of them are agile and quick. Elephants have their brute strength. Crocodiles have a hard scaly skin with razor sharp teeth that are setting a very powerful jaw birds fly. Be Sting. She. poop. They eat. They poop. And they? Run away. Sounds. Little personal. I mean think about it. But here's why I say that. Because the only security now, watch this do not miss this the only security. that a sheep has. Can Be found in. Their shepherd. The question is. WHO's your shepherd? Or if I could go to remember the titans who's your Daddy. That's all they have. When it comes to security and by the way. That's all we need. According to David. I'm a sheep. I have no security but in my shepherd, I don't need. Anything else as long as that Shepherd is God right. It's crazy. This is what David met when he wrote in Psalm Eighteen listen to these versus the Lord is my rock and my fortress. In whom I take. Refuge. That's my security. Not Let me help describe this for you in Cape Town South Africa there's a mountain called Table Mountain. Now it towers some three thousand feet above sea level, which isn't really that high. But it stretches about thirty, five, hundred feet if you will in diameter now. You get to the top of it by going up with cable car and they say that the view is incredible. I've I've not seen I've seen pictures, but I've never been there in person. But many people go not for the view. But to see the rock rabbit like animal called the Doc-. Because it's known. For that area. And it's quite an amazing animal. It's like a little tiny rabbit that when it becomes afraid, it runs for shelter. In the rocks, the crevices of the mountain now don't miss this. If you want to capture one. You'll have to overcome the entire mountain. Because they've burrowed ways to their. You'll never get to them. This is what David was saying if you want to get to me. You're going to have to go through God. He's my. He's my ship. I don't need anything else. See I want you to know that God is the rock that never moves. He's the rock that never roles. We have all the security we need. Amen to that. So we have need if you will for sufficiency, we have a need for security, but here's the third and then we're GonNa talk about these to the need for stability. The Need. For stability stabilisers are everywhere in life like an airplane. An airplane, tail fins and wings why? For stabilization correct. Chemistry. In that whole world, they have additives that they can put into a substance to prevent an unwanted change. Those are amazing stabilizations. Okay. A bicycle you can add training wheels. Trite Rope Walker has poll. You with me now. But. Let me get personal and let me ask you something. How would you label your life right now? Calm. Or chaotic. Would those closest to you say. They're stable. Would those. That are around you. To find your life. See, David said what? He makes me lie down in Green Pastures he leads me beside quiet waters. Now let me help you hear as we're GONNA moment we're GonNa we're gonna read this but I want to start giving you a glimpse. What's going on here see the word quiet aware very weak translation or still waters. That's not what those words mean. They actually translate non turbulent waters. He leads me beside waters that make no no choice. And don't miss this. Okay. because sheep frightened easily. Boy. Boy. Does that say a lot about US especially in the last five months? There's a lot of God's children walking in a lot of fear. For for no reason yeah, I'm going to have to say that. Because the Lord is my shepherd. I don't need to freak out about covert. You with me on this but there's a lot of people freaking out and in fear. But the shepherd. Would never lead his sheep. To drink at the foot of a babbling brook. Or waterfall now there's two reasons for that. One is it makes no ace. And it would put fear and panic in a sheep. And a good shepherd notes. That is perfect. Love cast out all that fear. So he wouldn't lead you there. But. There's another thing I want you to catch to. The only thing when it comes to water sources. That make no noise. Are the deep waters. And so when he says, the Lord is my shepherd. He leads me beside the non turbulent waters. He's not just saying because I don't want you to be full of fear, but I also want to grow your faith. I want you to have deep stuff. y'All catch. That S. See that's a person, a stable life one who walks in faith not in fear. One, who has depth Not, one shallow. See we have a need for stability and that stability actually comes. From the Good Shepherd. Does that make sense? See I. Don't know what Storm Right now is tearing into your life, but here's what I do know. The good, shepherd wants to lead you to quiet waters. See I don't know the financial burdens that you face or the relational breakdowns that you're going through or the work related stresses that you might have. In your life might feel all churned up. Here's what I do know. There's a good shepherd who wants to lead you beside the non turbulent and to the deep waters. If you guys know. But the captain of a ship? Doesn't fear. Out in the open sea, his greatest fears when he gets close to land. Because that's the rocks are. That's where if you will the occurrence takeover, that's the waves can come and beat against the boat. So they don't fear the storm out in the deep waters. They fear it when they get closer to land. In that. Interesting. And the same should be true for us. Still waters are deep and silent. Shallow waters are fast in noisy. David Watts to get this. In. So in Song Seventy-three, here's what he writes. The Earth has nothing I desire. Besides, you Oh, Lord. They're has nothing that's the shallow noisy stuff but the Lord is my shepherd. I don't anything else. What's going through your mind and heart but we think about these two security and stability and my life of. Town of like come to realize that. For example, we were gases stability. There's just a lot that has to do destabilizing you that comes from warring about the things that you basically have no control over. your finance is what you're going to need the next day. What you're going to need the next minute you're always concerned about that next thing. But. What I've come to find out is. Constantly, trust in the holy. Spirit. Eases all of that. Because the Holy Spirit. Sometimes just reminds me that Luke. When you think about this things when you worry about this things, does it change anything? But every time you have depended on me. How's IT worked out? And that's just only the reminder I need most of the time. But there's that piece that God brinks. When you hand over everything to him and say God I'm not in control of my life I'm learning control anything that happens to me. You in control. In the early stages of our marriage I found myself putting my security and stuff and Every time we'd get into an argument or disagreement anything I always had it running through my mind is going to be. is going to be it. You know is this GonNa? Be the. End. Of our marriage. But as I AM growing in Christ and I'm fine. I have found my security in him. And I wrote down. You need to put your search your security in the one that cannot be shaken and you won't be shaken. And I find that. Now when we have disagreements. Give it to God, you know there's He can't fix it. But God can. Here's the fourth need that we have. The need for significance? Need. For significance, now I don't want to miss this. A young man grownup may see blonde hair and blue eyes. K.. and think. Maybe, I could be my wife you know. A recruiter. Probably will see a talented point card or future quarterback right? Think we have got to have that guy. If you watch the voice, they hear the next. Great Rockstar right. The next great beautiful voice. Am G America got talent k they see the next great talent. Someone. WHO PROBABLY END UP IN VEGAS and have their own show. Here's my question. What happens when the BLONDE HAIR TURNS GREY? When the athlete can no longer run. The voice no longer holds pitch. And the talent runs its course. Now why do I say all that? Because to make it big in this world and find significance you ready for this. You have to be willing to lay down your life. But to make it big in God's world. He already did that for you. I just find that interesting. We're always looking for significant since. So our is become if you will in our ears and all of our senses begin to judge that, right. So if I'm the next person on the voice. If I'm the next person that possibly could play in that game or I'm the person that can juggle the three balls in or on the one she likes. I can easily find my significance in that. But what happens when all of that fades because we all know a will Back to the go. The grace of all time we all know whoever fills that void will eventually be replaced. Correct. But. God says something different. Let me say it this way K.. When? I see a bunch of sheep I don't see. I usually see wall pot roast lamb chops. That's what I see when I see. The good shepherd see something totally different. Crazy. Where the world says, if you want significance, you're going to have to pay the price. God, says iron paid that price and already deem you significant. That's why I'm your shepherd. You don't need anything else. You don't have to play the game. And see until we get that. Until we embrace that. We're just GONNA keep running. We're. GonNa. Keep Looking. You know they tell me that the fastest growing crime right now in this country's identity theft. which I I find sort of sad. But ironic that somewhat hates themselves so much they wanna to be me. I think that's interesting you. Good, luck to that. All right. But here's what I want to say though because when you go through it. They say it's horrific. But here's what I want to help with. Your identity is far more than your credit card number or your bank account. It's so much more than that or or at least I. Hope it is. See I think the greatest danger of identity theft. Is never realizing the significant incredible creation you are in Christ. I think that's the greatest identity theft. Because you can always recover your identity this side of heaven. But you never know the Good Shepherd. You'll never recover that identity. When it's been stolen. What's going through your mind before we wrap this up? Where so quick? As humans to dig and dig and dig for the approval of others. And, we can get ourselves and such deep hole to where our morals are stripped from us. Our identity is stripped from US and You we just need to come to a point where we lift our hands up to our daddy and say help and he will be right there to lift you out of that hole. People are very easily influenced by what's going on in the world what they see on social media on TV. And they're quick to. See what is the is the fact that popular at the time and do that because they know that will make them known or famous, but then fadul change. So then they're looking for the next fed essentially like you said with identity theft, they're basically letting the world. Identify who they are the leading the world, determine what they're gonna do with their life. Instead of looking Jesus Christ land and finding who they really are who Christ made them to be. We've gotten so engrossed in his wall and the issue of finding significance in the wrong things. that. It affects what are Papas eventually is. and Christ called us to. To be representatives of him and walled. But what we see ourselves doing a lot of the time is trying to find significance in the world. Were supposed to be like a picture that the word Luke's at and say, this is what I want to be like this who I'm supposed to be like. and. We can only be able to do that when we find out significantly. Christ. and. The more we get to know, Christ, the mall we get to be like him and the more the word gets to new WHO use. Because Christ has come and we are his representatives here on earth. And if we continue to strive for significance in the world, it doesn't do. What we're supposed to be representing any good. Because basically turns us into what we're. Not. Supposed to be. But if we continue to seek significance, in Christ post few pople's in Christ. That helps us to be that fieger that Christ can use to show himself. To the word and say, this is who I am. This is who you should be, which is eventually what we're all called to actually do. Don't you think sometimes what's hard about that whole thing of significance. Is really believing that we are. Exactly what Christ Jesus wants us to be. and. I sing in order to receive that we need to be still. To be still a lot more than we naturally are. We need to be able to receive his word in a way that nourishes and feeds us in the form of belief. Because if you just boil it all down and look at it, it's it's pretty amazing. That he who created the heavens a nurse and through the stars in the sky and created you and I. And knew what he was doing when he did that. LOVES AND ADORES US IN CALLS US as his own? Soundly. Very. humbling. We need to be still know that. That leads right in. To our fifth need the need for spirituality. Now, I did say that we have five needs. Okay and she had the same need at least as animal. This is one they don't need. Okay. Because they don't have what we have and being made in God's image soul. But we have this deep need for spirituality. But here's the tragedy. When we do not get that spirituality here. We'll look for other substitutes. So this is what people I think can quickly look past. But this is why there's so many different religions in the world. It's not because. If. You will. It's the right thing to do. It's the center need looking for something to fill. That's why there's so many of them regardless of race language or culture all people groups have a basic intrinsic need on the inside for something spiritual. For something bigger. Because we were created for that. We were created to worship Almighty God and we don't get it. It's why we idolize athletes. It's why we idolize actors or actresses. It's why for eighteen years we television show entitled American Idol. There's a reason for that. In fact, every weekend. Many people will attend church not because they're saved. Because they're looking for something spiritual. In that crazy. Not Everybody going to church even gets it. But they're there because they're trying to. That's why when nine eleven happened. You know who of which I don't agree with our president at that moment who said, you know well, we're worshiping the same God And that's not true. Okay. But the reason why church attendance and mosque and and and all kinds of temples and things were packed. Because in the middle of crisis, we're looking for some answers. There's a spiritual thing within us. That's a beautiful thing. Okay. The question is, is at the Good Shepherd. Because only he can satisfy. And when you have him, you don't need anything else. Now I told you we're GONNA look at verse to here but I want to set this up before we do as we wrap this up taking you back if you will two thousand three when Pixar came out with the movie cars. It was a great animation a about this lightning McQueen this young rookie race car driver who had an ego problem. I mean, it was all about him and you get that real real quickly in the beginning and his entire life was about speed. In fact, the movie opens within the dark and you hear speed I am speed. And that's that's what he was all about. And of course, he gets into a race and there's a triple tie if you will, and in a week later they're supposed to race it off for the Piston Cup. But in the midst of traveling across the nation to go out to California where the race is going to be like in Queens somehow finds himself lost in a little town called radiator springs, which is filled with a bunch of collecting Weirdos. Okay and and all he wants to do is get out of there. Because, his security his significance, his stability you with me everything is wrapped up in speed. I gotta go I got things to do. But in this little town. He starts a fall in love. With these other. Really kind of ECLECTIC Weirdos. And on one joy. Reid. He's out with Sally. who was a if you will lawyer? A rich lawyer out in town and she finally got tired of it. And so she said, I, started to derive until I broke down in this little town he goes why do you stay she goes I fell in love. And Lightning McQueen goes with a corvette. And she goes no and she pulls over to the cliff and says with this. And you see this beautiful. Unbelievable Canyon in down in the bottom little radiator springs. And then lightning goes wow and he looks over the right and there's an interstate. Cars are just full on the interstate driving. And he goes look at him. They're all just driving in their missing all of this. And she goes. Yes. She said the highways used to move with the land. But to save ten minutes. They built interstate. She said where people used. To drive okay. Have a good time. Now, the drive to save time. And in the end. Of that little moment. Lightning says something that I totally disagree with he goes sometimes. It's good to slow down. Thank you for that. And she goes. You're welcome. And in that, I would disagree because people I want you to catch this because this is what the Good Shepherd wants to get. Is that it's not good sometimes a slowdown. The Good Shepherd says you need to slow down all the time. And yet, we don't do we. See I don't know if this happens to you. Happens to be a weekly basis I pull up to a stoplight. There's two lanes. and. There's always the one car every week. This happens there's the one car who you know he he or she is thinking it's mostly guys. And they're thinking you are not beating me off this long. y'All been there. and. Sure. Enough that light turns green and you know he was thinking that. And you just Kinda like. What an idiot, right? And you pull up the next stop light where he's already awaiting. And the same thing happens and then you have that moment maybe you don't but I do. I'm that guy. Thank. The Lord is my shepherd. I don't need anything else. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me. Beside the quiet deep waters. And the next week, we'll be talking he restores my soul because we need the restoration. But, I want to tell you something that most don't know. and. Then I want to hear your thoughts. We'll wrap this up. But already told you that the quiet waters and the non turbulent ones. And to get to the quiet waters needs to be deep waters. Because God doesn't want us to have fear. He wants to have faith a deep faith right and that requires death, but it says. He makes me lie down trees Latian says he lets me but that's a bad translation. David's literally saying sometimes you need to be made to lie down. We don't like that that's a problem. In this country, we don't want to be made to do anything. But I would say this until you can let God do that he ain't your good shepherd. Because sometimes he needs to make you lie down now. Here's something you probably don't know back in Jesus. Day David stay they didn't have pens they didn't have pasturelands divided by fences. It was just free range. And so she liked to watch. But. Here's what you need to know about sheep. A sheep will never lay down. Until all of their needs are met. Think about that. Is He. Your stability. Is He your security? Is he not just one of them. Is He your significance? Is He? Your spirituality because if he's not all of them. He might be for them. But if he's not all of them, you're still going to wander because you're still looking. With a net. That's why David said. Sometimes, I need to be made to lie down I'll explain that. Back, in Jesus's Day David's Day. A good, shepherd, new sheep wander and when they wander. It could cost them their life. And when a sheep does that too often. The shepherd will actually break one of its lakes. because. That's how much he loves them. Because better to have them crippled with the Good Shepherd. Than to be dead. Out. In the Wilderness. and. So when you see the picture of a shepherd and the sheep around its neck. Put the sheep there, and he would feed it and water. He would nursing and he would speak to it. So the relationship is growing. Almost one hundred percent of the time. He'd finally put that sheet back down it would never wander again. Now, why do I say that do not miss this? Maybe, cove it. Is God's way of trying to break our legs. I'm? Not Saying. It is. But if there's one thing that God desires. Is that we come to him with a broken spirit. Because worship can't come to him. Any other way you worship auto broken this You see that because he's the good. Shepherd. Sometimes he needs to break my legs to make me lie down 'cause I need to realize that everything that I need is in him. Right and he'll make sure I get well watered and fed. because. He puts me out in the green faster. and. That pastor is always gonna be everything I need and he's going to get me to the quiet waters which are deep and they won't be full of fear. You see how this goes. People this is important. We catch this. David said in Psalm four I will lie down and sleep in peace for you alone Oh God make dwelling safety. Those are great words. Those are great words. I began last week. If we have a wrong perception of God, it will influence and impact every area of our life. If, we have a right perception of the Good Shepherd. It will influence and impact every area of our life. Now, I'm going to close US something just a minute real quickly but what's going through your mind as we wrap up I can't imagine a picture of a shepherd bringing the sheep there and say, Hey, hurry up hurry up we have stuff we gotta do her up drink hurry. You can't speak up and yet. I think man especially before covid. That's the way we ran a lives. Hey to the kids hurry up and. Get to gain hurry up. We got we got we got this got to do and we got to get to this and and about like we were that. We were just about speed all the time. And I know for me. One of the things that has changed over the last month has been my my acknowledgement to God and asking for forgiveness of being in. Hurry. Way Too. Much. In in Saint God I'm sorry for that trying to fit you into a slot even if it's a devotional slot and not just breathing and walking in and just lane here in having space and that, and that's something that has come to me more and more. So I agree that you just talking about that. Being in that please of total surrender. Really can affleck. Just. Hit. Me Hard now because. There are times when it seems like we pick and choose what area of our lives we wanted to surrender to God and. Just you saying that you have to give everything. You can't pick and choose you can't say okay this this part is off limits for you I can handle this part. and. Then you can have the rest. That's not good enough. Because just like you said the the sheep will continue to wonder. On tests found, the fact that the shepherd is able to meet everyone of its needs Dan it's would lay down. And I think. We tend to. To not put. OUR ENTIRE T That's the entirety of trust in God. Because sometimes I got my life and I'm like, okay, I think I trust God consigning these this this and this but I think I have to work this out myself. Even if it's a wishing. That I knew I have to trust him with as well and I seen here I think I. Have to repent of that because. I feel like I have to surrender everything to him. and. That's the only way. I can get everything that he has for me. A, man. Amen and I'd like to use that. To offer some questions. Is He the Good Shepherd of your life. His he all you need. Springs me. The question are you really saved? Maybe, you gave your heart to church, but you didn't really give it to Christ the Good Shepherd. I have to ask that. If you died tonight if you died right now, do you know for certain that you would spend eternity in the greenest pastures? With the Good Shepherd. I want you to know if that's not clear. If. That's in question, it doesn't have to be. There's good news. He cares had he will meet every need. The Bible says I am the door. That's what the Bible says. If you enter through me, you will be saved and you will go in and find green pasture. Wow and what did you say and the water? I give. You'll never thirst again. Everything we needed wrapped up in the Good Shepherd Amen Today David was right. We get that promise right? Every other promise God. Falls in place everyone. He is. The? Good. Shepherd and you know it's interesting. We talk about cheap. One of my staff said this to me I thought it was beautiful. The. Perfect Lamb of God. And the Prophet said. Not, one of his bones were broken. He was a perfect lamb of God. Who took away the sins of the world? But, you and I. We will always be broken and we're willing to accept that and received the one who never was. But, who knew no sin who took Garson? It became our sin because love. Oh. He's a good, shepherd. Me Pray. Father. There might be one just even watching right it says. That's in question for me. I don't know for certain they can right now. I pray that they would just realize it's. It's not if you will in how it said. It's just in the purity of of simply saying these words and if you're one of those people just repeat after me. Lord forgive. ME. I'm broken. It's in you that I have everything. I don't need to keep wandering. Keep looking over fences. Keep searching. You are the Good Shepherd. I don't need any thing else. You are the perfect lamb of God. Lord those words that's all they need to say those words. Surrendering their life just as Joseph said, those are credible ways. It's all about surrender. And when we do. We will be satisfied. You will lead us. To the waters that we will never thirst again. You will take us into pastures and yes, we may need to be made to lay down. But the one doing the making is worth being obedient to. You alone satisfy. This world has nothing to offer. But boy in you, we have a whole lot offer the world. and. That's what matters God. We say thanks in advance in Jesus name. Amen.

The homesickness letters

"This is an ABC podcast. My guest on conversations today is Jeff green? There was a time when Jeff just draped Australia growing up in a counselor state in the deepest north west of England strategy was a fire way paradise of kangaroos and sunshine as fate would have it. Jeff ended up living in a strata which meant that paradise got somewhat less rosy while England became the place. He dreamt about all this emotional doing and froing is the basis of his new comedy show called lettuce harm hijack. Hello. Tell me about the conversation. You having with your mom the morning what she being up to my mother. She was in that which which is just a little village nature, which is round from in the north west of England. She spent dancing what sort of dancing does get up to while she seventy eight nearly seventy nine so, I'm probably Shumei's not hip hop. And. Early seeming. You could pay you never know what what passes I think it will be ballroom, dancing, and and she loved it. And she saw a group and honor band showed a group. They were they were great. And she wished me look to come on the show. So she's a fairly sparky character. I'm guessing. Yeah. Absolutely. I'm very lucky that my mother, despite you know, approaching eighty doesn't seem to be showing any signs it's low in down. And and my stepfather was well, it was a little younger than she took a bit of a toy. Yeah. Totally could he's he's very supportive, and was has been I was very lucky to for my mom to meet my stepfather. What did you look like when you were growing up? This pictures of my mom, very beautiful lovely is. And and bit of Dolly birds and damage any catch in. She was married. Three times before Shane reached thirty. So you know, she easy twenties. Well, that's what happened in those days. I'm gonna say those days in the fifties and sixties. My mother was married at sixteen and had my sister eighteen should three kids at twenty four. That was just how it wants an a lot of the reason for that was that she wanted escape home often. I think nowadays homes just fall to comfortable for children are gonna friend. Denise Scott says if you ever want your kids to leave home don't buy them, a double bed wants to go to Beth ain't going don't go get married instead yet, I'm bring someone else. Oh, yeah. But in fifties and sixties when home was two up two down, which is what we used to call those places and an outside toilet and coal fire. Most people that were in grinding, poverty and also an animal. Boy, it's for for the Lou in the middle of the night, which I used to use. When I stayed at my grandmother's and I- terrified children about it these days, but but if when you when you're surrounded by that you dream of getting out, and I think that's what women did they wanted to get out. So where do you come in the lineup of husbands and whose offspring you? I'm my mother's. Second husband a little bit of confusion. I've actually had three surnames I three cents before was even even school. Green. Is my third surname. I was born Jeffrey Nielsen that was my mom's first husband, I quite his name for some reason. I've never really asked him on what some some sort of hiccup of dates going on and you don't prize. So so fall into the future into the past. But that was Jeffrey Thomas, and then and then by the time, I was sixteen. I was Jeffrey green kids at school on the witness protection program. Kept changing my name we conscious about it at school. I mean, how unusual? Does your usual to is to normal most people at not true most people, but I knew quite a few people that came that went home from the school holidays known as Jones came back as keagan. Yeah. It was it was just normal. What what boys and girls did when their mothers new husband and win. What about fear personally, when these switches happened was it confusing on this is this is what's happening. It was. It was just what was happening. Yeah. I was her two sisters. They've got a different name to me not to two sisters to hoppers. I'm an two stepsisters. Am I I'm I'm an only child in a family of seven and how do you get on? Well, they I don't great with all of them because I am the sort of the fulcrum to them. I've got something in common with that everybody. Then diagram if your family you sit right at that lodestar exactly I could never draw a family tree when I was growing low kids grew from meter is not at rhythm. I concede to this bit of the family to that bit of the family been struck by lightning several times as you say he from a broken go. No, more of a dour bombsite to be honest. What kind of house did you and your mom leaving? When you were a kid. What was his counselor state live? So countless that was a place called play can in Chester and just as very Twee gesture is two thousand years old. It was founded by the Romans used to be called diva was the the twentieth. Legion's main base firfer keeping the Welsh in check. That was the whole point of it was a place to to cross the river. Dee and you can't you can't go anywhere. Interesting. Build a cop without digging up some kind of Roman villa and then on the outskirts of that was was a place called Blake on which is built in the fifties. At the time. It was the largest counselor state in western Europe, only, Molly. Yep. It was it was big. But it wasn't rough. I mean, we we were told you live in Blakeney. It's rough. It was it was rough for their for chest. It wasn't rougher for the north wasn't Manchester. Rough way where you've got a room to your car and all east London rough. It was probably Australia. Rough. You know, people if they don't sell Oldman Milkin the cafe that's considered. Was it a high-rise though? I mean, what did it look like, no we had it was a mixture of council houses and private dwellings? And we had a council house, which we bought from the council for two thousand pounds. And I lived there until I was ten and then my mom and dad divorced and I moved into a flatter council. Flammable butchers, and we were sort of terrorized by these dogs Easter come and try and break over open the bin bags that the butcher's left the bones in most of the time were sort of beleaguered at the dogs. They're now you can come out. And that was that was a tough time for me. My sister. My sister's we're going through their their exams J James sixteen and it was last thing she needed to be moving and and acting to a new way of life and and in that show dinner exams. I was younger. And then my and then we moved back into to our old house when my dad moved out they come to some kind of financial arrangements. And then we'll there there my mom meta last spend, Dave who I was very lucky that she met him. I said earlier and the reason for that was because I saw slot. Started off the rails. I was stuff we well. You know, I was hanging out at night. My mom certainly didn't have the time and energy to look after all of us and go through her divorce. And and I used that opportunity to to use that freedom to mix with another crowd climb on the school gates climb over onto the roofs, smashed windows. Go onto the railways burn down huts that kind of stuff down hops into burnt down. The hot meant to burn down the school of the wind changed the hot got it. So I am. It was when Dave came into the picture that the burning down of hot stopped all stopped and he provided some stability most of all these provided financial stability. And so instead of me thinking twelve thirteen that my not natural course of my life would Beata to go and get an apprenticeship will become a Baker or become an electrician will become somebody's fitters mate. And then the main purpose to provide income for my mother was we used to call it Cape in a you have to pay keep and and it was my sister's pay ten pounds, and my sister Jackie had had assassin John will had to I had. I had a paper round. We'll have to give my money even from their age of thirteen onwards. And so when Dave came on didn't have to do that so SUNY, I think a little bit more ambitiously. So I I was always quite clever at school certainly relative to everybody else. It wasn't a wasn't it. Hi ball. And and I managed to get my own vols and then much to get my levels. And then I became the first boy that schools go to university. Wow. That was that was. Yeah. That was purely because Dave settle. I can we can pay you. So no one in my family ever going to university sister. Now, I'm you know, I'm studying chemical engineering Birmingham university. When things could have been so different. I think when you were still a teenager or even young your mom did consider a big change to to your life. It'd be a big consideration. Will she thinking? Yeah. Absolutely. When when when I was ten when we moved to that that flat above the butchers. My mother brought home some pamphlets about Austrailia, and these pamphlets are were there was a single parent migrant opportunity, and we were dazzled by these these leaflets five leaflets, and and showed this beautiful straits in the opera house, and and kangaroos and and the and the. With platypus is on the back of it. But it's still at the queen's head. So it was still comforting. It wasn't too far. It was it was comforting. But exotic and so we were planning to leave me my sisters. My mother nineteen seventy four mum went through the whole process. Went through the interviews. She got all onside. We'll radically thought we might get a koala handed to us at the port. And and then and then my mom said, we're not going and we'll scratch heads. Well, it sounds great while going, and I've talked about the sense. And she said, well, there's a clause in the contract this assisted passage contract. That says if the Australian government deems that she my mother is not financially or not prove that she's financially independent of the state within six months of her arriving. And they and by the way, your government. They they provide the parameters of that. And it's non-negotiable then she would have to hand the children over into care. Wait a minute. Yeah. Is true. That was that was true for her. Wow. And and she said, I just could not sign that document that said if I she said anything could have gone wrong could have broke my leg, full nil. I could've lost my job anything that meant that. In six months time. There was some scintilla of of reason for the government to say. Fail. The testified the children after come to us. And then we would have been, you know, formed out to outback farms or wherever wherever it would have been my and she went it was the risk was too. Great. So we're not going. Well, that's the kind of alternate argument. Always read the fine print anything you sign. Absolutely. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. In fact, when when I saw Kevin Rudd apologize. I think it was to half a million brutalized children that became the forgotten Australians that went through that same system. I remember saying to my mom 'cause that was luckiest guy. Now, Jeff we're gonna change Keith lot. I'm going to play something for you. And I'm gonna get you to explain to me what this evokes. Let's listen. Time in Britain and Germany is twelve noon and Austrailia it's nine pm in the far east at six thirty pm in Canada seven and a New Zealand eleven PM time once again for worldwide family favorites. Tell me why are we hearing that stirring piece of music grain? What's it all about that is two way family favorites? Which is a UK BBC to abuse radio to show that used to be played a twelve o'clock on a Sunday lunchtime. It started out in one thousand nine hundred forty five of us originally forces radio show that connected the British forces in in Germany Gibraltar in Hong Kong to their families back home, then morphed over the years to include the empire the old by the Commonwealth. And that's what we call it. Sorry. Date on. We still. Think principles? Does. So then it then became. As I said, this this this connection between Australia New Zealand, and that one million ten pound poems that translate that came over between the forty five and eighty two that's what ended and the and the and the people that they left back home so officer before emails, and before a Skype, and before, you know, all these things, we'll even funk attack expensive and and tricky to arrange in this period. Absolutely. Yeah. Maybe nine pounds for a minute. If you could get it not to be connected via Singapore. And and then down the line and Darwin. So these people used to write these little, postcards, and they would request songs, and I would be listening at age ten or eleven with my mom, caulking dinner and the the smell of burnt. Put chicken and with Jim blitstein side. Been taking the plastic bag. My mom's a wonderful cook there were moments. But so, and we would we would we will listen to these these stories, and and what struck me was with these people who are talking they were young women, usually, and they were they were sending messages to mom back home saying, hey, we've arrived in wa and and we're looking forward to seeing him in three years time in the little one sends their love. And and we're Elizabeth is is is is not what we were in matching. But please play green green grass of home by Tom Jones to us. And I was and I know people for Mandurah people from Ipswich, and and yak and dander all these really interesting, and exotic sounding places that I never heard of him would never ever imagine. I would ever visit just imagined bleached rarely bleached whites sunshine, and and and this may be the Dilip scene. But but at the very heart was homesickness for the people back in England. Wales and Scotland Nyland that they they weren't saying they went likely to say, I am they were in search of a new life. I actually meet some of those people now sometimes with my job, I do do shows on cruise ships. And which is now got very so quite quite often, an elderly clientele, and I'll I'll still, hey, these northern accents with these little ladies with Dundee lime flow for hair, and they were almost ralian. I've been back to England for fifty five years I've noticed too, but you must have been the ten pound poems. Here we are you those young women in pinafores that I was listening to and of course, they're elderly and grandmothers. And you know, it's interesting to see them, they all come full circle with their own, grandchildren. It's interesting that you and your mom and sisters could get that flavor of homesickness before you even left really account. So flat in Chester. You got good a sense of that emotion. Yeah. Absolutely. It was well it was the it was the the tyranny of. Since and the fact that they wouldn't see them. They wouldn't see these people that they were writing to these people. But I knew that they would desperate to stay torch. So your mom didn't immigrate under the fear that your children would be snatched from her, and you stayed up at home stays at school and the first kid from your school to go onto university. What did he study I should engineering as originally mineral engineering became chemical engineering? My not talking to Jeff green, the highly regarded chemical engineer instead of Jeff green, the comic, you might you quite possibly you could have done you have been on mount is a radio, and I would be working in the mine there, and, you know, probably before to my pension that's going to be just around the corner, but like some fool, I I was very lucky I left university. I went to a company called POC selling oxygen and acetylene to welders that was my first job over got fed up other glamour of that and wanted to find some alternative course of my life. I was. I was really happy in that job. I'd always been good at maths physics chemistry. Like a lot of kids boys, you know, when we gender profiling. That's what boys did actually want to go to university. I realize I really enjoyed lane about sleeping in getting drunk. But it's also boy boy behavior certain categories, exactly. Got my two one. I got a great degree went to be part of their Greg graduate training scheme. Hated hated being around this this industry felt it was very restrictive didn't like the the the the rules didn't like anything about being employed by someone else we still living in Chester gnaws living in living in a place called Gilford just outside London. And then don't buy girl. I end the girl I was engaged to it university. Gokul Mandy don't to me. I am which at the time. It was the most painful that was ever going to have to me, my friend his ear of Sal who. Is now a big cheese in the crown prosecutions. Have I was at Uni with he said, Jeff I'll cheer you up. We'll go to this new place. I've heard about called the comedy store in LeicesteR square. Now, the comedy store was the mecca of stand up comedy in those days. Ben Elton was playing their Stephen Fry. Hugh, Laurie Robin Williams would drop in the young ones were playing. It was just those accu- round the block, and we got tickets to see the late show Friday midnight the show dental to clock in the morning. I was twenty three couldn't believe this world existed. And I loved it. I go along a see these three comedians three great comedians and their dress by light may they're my age. They're not in Spangler, suits. They're not telling hack jokes that telling stories about their lives stuff. I can relate to and I'm thinking, this is wonderful one out. How would you ever get to do something like that? And as I'm leaving. I see on the on the door of the comedy store for piece of paper with the comedy store that ahead on it. And it said open spots. Interested acts if you want to try out for five minutes at the comedy store, contact this number, and and we will give you a booking and butterflies erupted in my stomach hours. Like this. This is how you do it. This is the path that is how they did it. Those boys on stage of seen. So took the number down in an told talk to Nasr about it. And if I win tonight every time I looked at it. I got terrified when you can't do that. You did not. That's not something you can do your allowed other people. Do those exciting things you you're an engineer. After a few weeks. I started to get the the nerve nast Nazir said to me Jeff this. There's a place called Jackson's lane cabaret workshop or read about it's in Highgate north London Tuesday night, five pounds, go there. Comedians talk to hopefuls about what the circuits like. So I went as a halfway house a winter to that. And what you do still is still doing comedy from those thirty two years and years get out we're the only two from the little group. What was he like he was weird quirky just out of Sheffield university or had very long Khotan and spoke funny, but lovely wasn't quite as his his genius had not shown itself at that point. He was just odd. I liked him. And he liked me. I ended up they made the same about you thousand pounds to start his first comedy club. And he paid me back fifty pounds a month. And I went that's gonna take forever. You should really just to get royalties. I think. What did you learn from that as you call it halfway house? If we relaunched into yourself, not really anything to learn how to get gigs. How to be persistent what kind of what kind of gigs were around Sony? My off dozen in London this comedy scene in the UK's enormous now, but it was half a dozen. It was just a cottage industry it was rooms above pubs. It was it was places little vegetarian cafes would just move the chairs from a corner, and you'd stand in the corner with no microphone and just perform you'd be followed by a juggler. And then a clown that would would stick a firework copies backside, very very bohemian Avangard and I loved every minute. And it was so different to engineering. What about the hecklers could they as good as the comedian clues were were amazing? This those I used ice to one of reasons I talk quick is. Because it's it's a response and defense to heckling. I found delivered lots and lots of jokes as fast as possible. They would be daunted by the onslaught. And and I mean that's kept me in good stead. I enjoy performance to that. But that was the reason there was no dawdling. Those no mulling over and contemplating your punchline, no shaggy dog stories. It was jokes jokes jokes to keep the the hecklers off and people would you know? Guy walked on with a with guitar, and he had a blow up strawberry. And he starts playing guitar. Someone says what you did with that stupid prompt. He says, well, it's just part the acting when I was talking to the strawberry. But still at first moment where you go from thinking of this fun and exciting and actually standing in front of people and trying to make them laugh. How did you first get goes the first gig was I start to write some jokes. And there's lots of things to learn in in standard, especially when you when you were at original performer, I perform in euro material that you know, you've got to learn how to ride Joe she go to learn Joe construction, you've got to understand stagecraft pacing audience interaction lights microphones in this. It's an an it's for somebody that never stood on stage. I wasn't an actor. I wasn't somebody that had a grounding in amateur dramatics. First time onstage was my first time on stage. And and I wrote it all on my hand. I learnt it by rote walking around my flat just saying over and over again. I the first thing I learned was was to wait for the appl-, wait for applause. Wait for the laughter. Flaws. Flaws. For the wishful. This is the wish will aspirated Kobe. Exactly. That's one of the things my wife. Always complains to me about. She's she's you've got a laws people, clap you, and you tell for work. It's a real being a bonus. No. No me do the dishes on get clapped. I said we got clapped when you dropped your dinner at hungry. Jack's your skit on a chip the trae when overhead to give you a standing ovation. It's not true. But yes, yes. That is part of the tradition that you get clapped twenty walkout stage. I think really it's it's an opportunity to create energy. Could we need we need energy a dead room is dead room? And everyone knows what how terrible that is to clapping just gets everyone going, and so which which we will then use that opportunity to to start create a connection. That's the most important thing in comedy is connecting three rules and comedy connect connect connect. And that's and that's your job as a comedian. Is you have to attend to that connection between you the origins at all times from the beginning. And also try and tell them jokes. In the meantime, as well when that connection doesn't work though, Jeff how's that when that connection doesn't work? That's when you're dying. And there's usually a good reason for it to some. Reason. And then you have to summon up all your strength because what you want to do what your mind tells you is to speed up get it over with. This is terrible. This is embarrassing their uncomfortable your comfortable, please make it all end very quickly. Just just knock the jokes out. But you can't do that you have to work. Counter intuitively. You have to slow down you have to let the origins get back on board with what you're saying. Most people in the world are lovely and want you to succeed does a few crazies. But most people are desperate to to. Will you want to success? But you gotta let them help you and you have to slow down. So you're fighting this this heart rate, that's in the one forties with this need to talk and allow people to connect with your and you to connect with your own words. And and and hopefully at the end, you know, you'll get a few laughs to walk off with some dignity. And when people say how how did it go? You say went fine. Then you go home smash be flat. Did that happen to you much? When you. Yeah. And you learn way more when you die than you, do and you succeed when I when I died on stage. I would go home and be up all night rewriting, my material rewriting changing the order working out. What went wrong? Why did it go wrong, everything you question everything? And that's vital. I mean, it's the same in any industry when you when you fail spectacularly, it really focuses the mind because it's so horrible that you don't want it to happen again. It's part of the apprenticeship is like us going to Notre Shen as he ever lost. His eyebrows. What of course, he has. That's just what happens people have catastrophic events in the early days. But then sometimes people change careers a result. Yeah. That's and that's fine. Comedy will find you out. It's not for everyone. There's been probably ten thousand people in the world of stand up comedy gate, but there's only a few hundred that wanted to carry on. Cast broadcast and online. Listening to conversations with Sarah Oskoui on ABC radio's. He more conversations anytime on the listen up or go to ABC dot net dot EU slash conversations. Jeff. Few describing you early days in the comedy scene in the UK. How tough was it to make that you'll job to shift from selling oxygen to plummets is up. We said you do that. When I said. When I said, I'm sure. Was it tough to actually make it as a as a professional? There's a lot to be said for not realizing quite how hard it would be in retrospect, it didn't feel that difficult. One of the first things I made sure I did was clear my debts. That is so debilitating its limits all of your options. And I mean, I was very look I came from an era which had the government paid for your face, and you and you actually full grant my parents were poor off for me to be looking to get paid to go to university. I'm still spending that money. So much. And so I, but I cleared my post university TAT's, and and I was working at bear in in the morning to at six AM finishing five six o'clock. Then I would shower the note Goto, gigging, not finish the gig. And that wanna hang out with the comedians because the ones that didn't have jobs, we're all going to each others houses after that. And I want to go to not go home and get ready for B O say I have a having said that they were lovely to me. So I I clicked debts, and and then I started to get more work. I I then want to competition, which was swimming. That's. Which was for the the comedy store new act of the year and in nineteen nine teddy in that in that competition fuel is now household names. Let it go. Jeff, and I sent me to Montreal to learn about comedy over in the states. So the Montreal comedy festivals. Huge this three big festivals reviews. The Melbourne comedy festival Montreal which is used the just for laughs festival in June. And then the Edinburgh fringe, which is my servant the three main events in any comedians calendar, if you can get invited to them they went they sent me there. I saw these great comedian. I was still working I came back, but I was starting to get this kind of Prentiss ship and in nine hundred ninety I had enough money to to lend friends money if they needed it. But also to I thought if it doesn't go if doesn't go, well, I can I can probably last a year on this money, and if I don't eat chooses and Fridays, and so that's what I did. She cried her eyes. I was going to say the first getting the family to go to university was devastated. She said, I said mom going to be. I mean, she thought comedians were drug addicted alcohol. Ick. You know? But but but I wasn't. And so I I I said moments. Honestly, it's it's something that I love my mom's always been supportive of me. I'm actually I I know I'm her favourite. I she never said it. But I know I could see her eyes. And and and so she was going to support me whatever I did. And of course, you know, as they say in Onis, happy Onis happy at least happy child Joan rivers said that. And so if I was going to be happy, that's all she needed to hear. And so and then she saw me on desert set next on Scharzenegger and so vested Salone being the comedy act. And and so all those tears were forgotten. What was the relationship like with the other comedians? I mean, I know that you must enjoy each other's company. And it sounds like you learning from each other. But does it get competitive to like is it a bit Beata when you see eighty do what it is does not not people genuinely deserve it. And most most people that you see all really hard working super talented people. It's the best to rise to the top. I mean what we could. Also, the does a few. You know, rough diamonds that never made it. But those probably a good reason for that. But most of the people you see Michael mcintyre's the idiots odds. The you know, the day fuses the Adam hills all of those people of apply themselves work hard. And and have some something a little something that the origins can latch onto. So you worked hard if you're building up this career in the UK, you're on TV. You're doing comedy circuit. You're impressing among the fact is sitting next to Arnold Schwarzenegger advance why relocate to half the world away. So I wrote three books that became bestsellers in in the UK and the living together the set of being single the tragic follow up and the having a baby should ask you. What's w in each of them pay? You know, how to tell you. Offer to. I used to remember them all but I was in that was two thousand to two thousand five hates to pay. They were they were. They were great. I had a radio to series of my own the green guide to life, and I never be housing. Hams. Didn't had two lovely children the born in the rule free hospital in Camden. But my wife was really happy Fiona was very unhappy home when I say home a mainland in London. Everything looks rosy from the outside. But I knew she was struggling. She was a Melbourne go, and she didn't have a family with her and she didn't have her friends with and she was having to bring up two little babies that weren't sleeping and a husband that worked nights and came home was for where certainly enjoying his life and n being creatively fulfilled. But she wasn't. And I was very aware that that something had to give that she wasn't. We weren't gonna last. If it stayed like, it was going to say, I guess, it's noting. That means that you the eight is. Of being married rather than the eight eight of single data's. Yeah. I I enjoy being married to you. And I and I knew that the future laying in Australia at some point not at that point. I still had lots of things going on. Then Fiona gets a phone call from strata that says her dad's really poorly, and that she needs to go home as fast as possible. And I mean that night. So I got the phone call seven in the morning, I was actually away. I was on toll my friend had to take her and the children my children to to Heathrow airport on a flight at midnight. November the temp they got home November twelve Mr. day. She saw her data pasta. Remember the sixteenth and. You know, I got the phone call toll mule that. But really the bottom fit was Jeff I'm not coming back Konkan back to London a need to stay here. And it be a moment. And just this is home for me. And I find I'm ready to come. You know, forget my career. Actually, I'm also I'll start again. And I really believe that I'll try I'll take a chat all took a chance looking back. My goodness. I was doing the craziest thing because there's only four gigs in in Australia for comedy comes. I can play them in a weekend. And they're I noticed expecting to live here forever. So I packed stuff. Fades came let stay where she was an shipped. All that. We ended up in a little flat lived with her mom for a while in Heidelberg and right during the Bush fires. It was the millenium drought. Two thousand nine the GMC. You know, the Julia artists new was incredible time the mining. Boom credible time to to to relocate an I just went. Well, that's got to have no choice. This wonderful thing about having no choice. You back to the what I've got to make this work. And I can't go back. You know, I have to stay here and apply myself to this country. This brings us to the new show lead us home. Tell me about the idea behind behind this sharp the show I wanted to oversee its tenth anniversary of being here. And I and I've always wanted to of rose remember that that show him the two way family favorites. And and those letters home explaining how they were getting on. And I and I read. I read books about the people Scottish ladies of written letters have been published the breathlessness excitement of this new country and often, swimming and Manley. I got burnt by the sun and mother, it's so clean here in Australian an an and I love those and I knew I had that in me. And I knew I needed to talk to my mom about what I don't hair. So I wanted to walk back this this past ten years through letters and some emails, and my notes in my diary to my mother explaining how he'd been getting on for these press ten years. So I decided to create the show that she would receive a letter from me each year. All true people have said, this isn't a pistol ary memoir. I don't even know what that means. But I said, no, it's a comedy show. But everything absolutely everything is true corner, logically factually will. And and so that's that's what the show is about. Can you read some of these? Let's start with the first letter that you wrote that you right to your mom when you arrive in in two thousand and nine. Yeah. So the written on these era grams member, these these very thin sort of sort of tissue, payphone lovely. There's such a Nevada. Thing to get in the mail. They. Yeah. Yeah. I'm sure everyone stack of them in the attic from from granny antiques from way back. So this is one of my first latter's much twelve two thousand nine mom, but one relief to say that we're finally here and sunny, Australia, we've been ten weeks now. And it seems like only yesterday when we arrived in Melbourne all of us living in one room, if your mom's house in Heidelberg, our suitcases stacked up around us sleeping on a futon, which is Japanese for concrete. We're out of there now thank God. And we've got a little house near the beach and a place called Saint Kilda the jewel of poor Phillip bay Melbourne's playground, and they discarded mattress and abandoned on depend capital of Australia. It's weird but walked through Saint Kilda streets, and you'll never be more than ten feet away from pet of dusty old on depends, kicked into the gutter. Red Pez blue Pez grape has bonds Calvin kleins are after wonder what could testify befell the owners of all these. Depends. They felt compelled to continue the rest of their journey commando style with all the chafing that that entails. It's one of life's mysteries hope there with why we need pocket in pajama tops. And how it is that people snort always seem to get to sleep. I. That's my first. It sounds like you're in a little bit of shock the Jeff by the extremists of the situation that you've found yourself in. How tricky was it to live with the mother in law and two small children that was that was very difficult. It was very kind of her. We're actually at that point also in a bit of a hot housing, boom. You know, it was very difficult to find rented accommodation. No matter how much you offered may have offered six months Renton events in her house in Warren. We got turned down considered. No, you just weren't good enough. So. Yeah. It was it was it was tricky for us to to find a place. So we got the we we took my mother-in-law's offer of the place. I remember this creaky bed and the children and all the suitcases and the and she's one of those elderly ladies that doesn't put the air conditioning on for anybody may put off half an hour on Christmas tops, forty five. So you know, it was sneak the economic. The street signs strategy or is something that you were struck buys. Well, the road signs. Did you reflect him about those? Yeah. So his another part of this. First letter, mom, you asked me for my first impressions. Now, I live here. Well, it probably know the Australians little better than when I first arrived, especially being married to one below. It was be curious to me because despite a shared language Australians do have funny ways. Not just the obvious ones like answering year now. Yeah now. Yeah. Not perfectly straightforward questions or using get lost in form of warm greeting for starts when you live here known a car. You realize the roads in Australia don't have any signposts to anywhere where you might want to actually visit that might be the beach the airport or have been a gig pace cash money. But only if you get there on time, Jeff, there's just this ridiculous assumption. You've lived here your whole life, and no way you're going. Sure, they'll give you science the southeastern suburbs. But who still navigating by compass and Sextant in two thousand and nine to be fair. They have named and signed every Pissy little creek the road crosses from Melvin to Cape York Perth to Port Hedland, Shauna. Sees creek dead horse creek. Vincent's? Creeks creek black water creek on and on perhaps assuming I'm driving four hundred head of cattle and trying to get the kids to the playgroup from the CB. The also invest in science that give helpful advice like don't sweep and drive as if it's a conscious decision people are making while at the wheel are just can't imagine anyone's crank in the seat back to grab a twenty minute power nap while Saint to their partner, I'm very tired. But I'll keep driving just give me a neutral reach Adelaide. Will you? Tiff green seeing a strategy with English is in letters that he imagined riding back to his mom in the UK in this period. When you staying mom and laws pice what kind of geeks? We getting site. You know, the comedy saying he was signed much smaller than the UK. How hot was it to start doing shows? I got an agent which was very lucky. I got still my agent now guy called under Tyler. And we came very good friends, and that was one of the keys to to getting stuff outside of the normal comedy of those the comics lounge in Melbourne at the sit down comedy club in Brisbane and the comedy store and soon he's played all of those said very quickly, and then I needed to branch out. And I remember getting offered some gigs in each team or although it wasn't told me as he's team. It was actually just we do some shows the Australian troops. And of course, being a new permanent resident and eager to play my part in this wonderful country that I was now calling I suggest also will what? The fate as no fee says you're doing it for the for the owner sit in England, we gotta Fe ten thousand pounds to play for the troops. So it's tough work and dangerous not AM eight we'll give you a pair of redback boots. So got these boots. And and I went and had a bit of training session. And then we and then we were we were flown out to east team or to perform for these diggers young diggers, those police tightened in two thousand and nine and the diggers and the and the Kiwis were within call key line, keeping the the police in the army from from killing each other all the shot hadn't been five. Sometimes I said once said GM coming off, and I was an eye on that gave me going Blackhawk helicopter wonderful. I was there was a guy called, Ian moss. Right. Who's from coaches? Everyone would know onsite. I'd never heard of him. I didn't know who he was. I thought he's part of the catering team kinda sandwiches. Did we gonna? Having it the team. Oh place makes no it'd be it'll be cold wraps local products. Is that what you'd be provided? Jeff I'm in. I'm in. Most most. Please to meet you. He's headliner and I've seen him since. Mistook guy cleaning up litter. Yes. I don't know. He was he was lovely a wonderful acoustic guitars, and what a great show for the Australian troops. I am but eight because each team is a Catholic country, which I know idea in Indonesia is Muslim, but this tiny little speck of the Costa Darwin off an island is t- molester is Roman Catholic all devout. And and so when I get to the show, I realized there's all the diggers mean an looking at them all then then they're there in their camouflage. They've been on patrol. So they've all this black stuff on their face. They're M sixteen rifles. Now, that's a tough cake. Right. That's not heckling a lot of jokes. A little red dot appears on your forehead. But I'm looking at these people and then I'm lacking. But who those other papal nuns that must have been twenty nuns that had come from the local nunnery? And and and it sat in the show that the comedy Scholley to see though. I know I did imagine where you pitcher show between soldiers and the really tough audience. It was it was they were lovely think. They didn't I couldn't walk. There's nothing to. Survived that. And then I think came back home by Dow and what happened in the gig out there. Yes, darwin. Yes, dalwin was interesting. It was the first time that I'd realized that Australia wasn't just a, you know, a different version of England. I actually included in one of my letters to my mother in June fourteenth two thousand and ten if I can read that pleased. I love this country. Mum, or I did until I stopped in Darwin on the way back I performed my first ever show there if you can call it that any lingering thoughts, I may have had that a strain is just a Sunni version of England, but with palm trees and parrots has after my experience in Darwin been firmly banished for start the climate the climate is the stuff of nightmares. It was thirty six degrees in four thousand percent humidity. Oh, my God mother the sweat, then the organizer call Dame. Oh, who seemed to be permanently drunk said to me just because of the weather. I've decided we're going to do the show outside. But don't worry. I've put some fans near the side of the stage to keep you. Call an upset the lighting rig up outdoors. You'll be fine as you know, trusting source. So I said, okay, all the boss, you know, what you're doing. Well, he didn't know what he was doing as I walked out on stage. He turns spotlight's on and instant every flying insects from ten kilometers Sony descended upon me. They got to those fans and fired into my face. It was awful. I'm trying to perform at the same time. I'm being peppered with these tropical sized creepy crawlies which having to spit out MC punchline are swallowed something Madonna what it was a muff has keta boogie. I do know it stuck in the back of throat on any choke to death people in the audience thought, it was part of the act heard someone say that bird swallow in broke was funny.

My wife used to say to me, Jeff. I'm your ticket to sunshine when she get angry with me. She stop saying that. Money back. But what about the the sense of ease? You say when you back in in Chester. How lovely it is is this still a part of you. That's really only understood in the UK that that is bit hard to hear in strata. Or is something you miss about your heart. Whenever I go home. I always when I come back one of the reasons I don't go very often pop from the price of the flights. But one of the reason is I getting credibly homesick when I'm back, and I'm very more link, and I found the best way to deal with any kind of of that homesick is to is is to is to avoid it. And I really focus on the future. I try not to focus on the past when I'm home. But I also the great the cure for him sickness is cold hard realism, you're on holiday. It's not raining. You haven't got to go to work. It's a different environment. You know, those all those ten pound poems. We talked about those millions that came over half of them went back, and then an half of that came back again, and they were in this constant state of flux, and they and they destroy themselves financially and matrimony really because they just weren't sure. Just gone back and had a bit of a holiday and then realized you know, whether whether life truly was meant to be they wouldn't have had so much heartache you now bring. Up your kids as astrologers. I guess how do you imagine the kind of childhood they having compared to the one that you had back in the UK? Also, my friend went ruining them. Okay. Kids a ruined my kids. You know, they they have school fates. They cycled a school through Albert Park day off after the grand prix. You know, they don't know that I really wanted that. When fairness has won the children's brought up in Australia. I was always for that. There's a thing about stadium fee a wider than the rest of the world's what the shoemakers. No, it's it's because you're bare feet and you wear these good. Good looking at me critically this. There's a thing about having bare feet off or thongs or wherever it is. That you sit you're not you're not ensconced in shoes. Feels like a slow to me just talking about the wide feet. Destroy is issued a form of celebration. It's it's bear for carefree.

office now hold on so you're just you're just like some some some custom hot sauces and yeah do you think do you think part of the person barbecue is kind of yeah for sure yeah i i'm not sure what isn't a good one guy's been making you will throw hotdogs on the pit every once in a while literally he already has these brisket they're really actually but if you score them are custom at all you can go straight to hell don't mess with it's kind of a perfect to yeah no change anything about it i think just throw it on a bond mustard almost certainly need man marshall data brad you know just

street just talking about hotdogs doug the french french if it's like a special team or sausages or why are you got a snack shit like that you're making this extravagant long zona things about the snacks sit down like a huge meal if you're into so much and it's so heavy and it's like you're around it you smell you see it all the time you wanna eat like different stuff but also appreciating when you have done a good job and just like oh man it's gonna be really good for those guys you you're you're you're like when people get players you know just looking for the person who's like super it's like you know like what is this is it good the best thing is when people are ready an organized and if there's like a group they're just like were getting a little bit of this seven a pound of this and i have found that the most annoying and the worst thing is like a family of six and they all get the exact same to me played one after another after another after another after another guys we could have been done with this like ten minutes ago and you would have been able like oh wow look at the plate of me looks awesome we get pat yeah that's like are are constant out here it's like it did if you meet plates or if there's damage sandwich you know here's your chance like people are gonna listen to tell them how to properly order i mean it depends i mean if you're by yourself you know like give whatever you want to me played much you know different things is you wanna try but if you're with a big group you know if you've had any any experience there like listen to the person who's going hey we should get this we should get that we should give more of this is you know like it's just it's nice to get that big trade me that's what everybody wants right you trust the cutter you know if you if you feel like you can i guess if you're like hey we got six date how much do we need the thing that's always nice when they're like hey late honest ready were hungry you would just down hey let's go give me give me your best shot down there when you think i'm good so also brings us the importance of cutter a think why is the cutter so important is it just it makes and now the two things one time thing you want it to be sliced right you want it to be you wanna look at it right they control at all they have i mean they have every opportunity to present it as good as it could be or as bad it takes so damn along the cook the food that you you wanna trust to it's cutting it and we've got some good good people here thankfully but it's it's a lot of attention to detail and all proceeds are different and everything cuts differently in just a little you know the the i didn't know when something's rioters something needs to be cut a little stickers center it's a lot a lot goes into it i would say it's more important than the cook honestly because you're you have the opportunity to prison it just right or do the opposite it's the last line of defense right you have if you have a terrible brisket cook there might be like one or two slices of it as you conserve and then you're if you have somebody who's knowledgeable on the block and they can you know mind those out of there you know get those couple of slices at a really good presenting well and then chop the rest up and just like shut up you know showed off the job how do you feel like i know but i've actually seen it's like a it's like a move for some people they like distraction and it sounds like a lot of cutting their now have you along smuggle arm of the huckler billion to take a bus or cold ice in the temp gauge right here it looks okay were you were cooking and podcasting only one here in maryland remember the mayor and so i mean how what's the outlines of closest now so here's the forty minutes thirty minutes thirty minutes so we're out in you know why nice left one cricket i couldn't cut down before we recordings so guessing really here that the nature of the marine a write off the to ninety so what were these roads go backwards austin and then there's there's two other directions to write about some and then you got going on there are certain direction lots of people like coming going to big ben big bend as he attraction brings a lot of people in investor so we get a lot of that like on weekends we have like a local crowd on thursdays and fridays usually and then saturdays and sundays where people traveling around then you see a lot of pressure or or she had a a u s the you have to roll through that checkpoint i wonder if they some people will be good barbecue which i find the way but it'd be crew in a dog that dog so far the point we've got elliott yeah the brother sending this fire someone's gotta do it now working phil you've got some customers had not affirmative action against some more yeah were a rig in the middle scale really without z almost go swimming pretty soon pretty excited about that you've got there a we yeah we got the ninety four to nothing it's they do such good work i mean they're very talented and they're very very they're very proud of what they're doing they take time they appreciate the craft and that's it goes right along with barbecue to what they're doing in their pets they they care about what they're doing you could tell they care about everything they do it in detail on that on the manafort hand on their thousand dollars be on i don't know how to explain they do such a good job which is calling sculptor rather what they're telling the guys and they host the guy they got everything you couldn't be cooler than those in a good a flag real real good in march they listen to jason is bell shutout jason is bell hunting season he they lost nearly broke yeah he you know he helps and well the the beautiful wilbur yeah he threw the airwaves yeah there's a lot going on but i mean there are now names and barbecue pits which five ten years ago and it wasn't really anyone you know maybe if you had a restaurant brands friends but yeah i like celebrity in i think up until then it was like oh we know you just got uncle he's a welder like something like that yeah when you guys you guys got the customer doesn't mean that's why my house is just a hyper something that's a weird alabama up until very recently every single barbecue pit has a made out of different things see sizes of the chambers and the fire like they they all looked at different they all work on put together a little different they all know worked a little different now it's just very like a modulus and that's you know everybody's got the same same off that same fits that's why you know looking on the little a direct and we have over there some of the brad specialized and a hollow yeah yeah so fun and you have a pretty big hug austin right this is the one this is the one who he is a that is a half fog 'em if they're a little bit smaller consider the whole 'em and you guys the whole though regularly now yeah it's it's on the menu everyday everyday versatility brisket is only on saturday yeah you guys you guys in the wild probably menu everyone else 'em i dunno maybe yeah compared to every marketplaces probably a very wide one day we'll know man you know we'd like to mix it up that way everyone should i think the worthless yeah look at say specials none of the money yeah i think it's just a change it comes from the source saying we wanna make sure switching everything responsibly everything we get from texas 'em everything we get is like obviously no hormones no biotic pasture raised really really high quality meat by people that we raised by people that we know i heard forty four farms just starts on to you right yeah 'em i mean we buy their cheeks us the only thing we get some forty four i mean it's not that hard cheeks just because because it's not that like high rise like thing 'em we is harmful brisket got picks from south texas to support these what what do they do the news two one oh three a heritage breed cross a large black and red waddles so the really meaty really fatty the pasture raised other it right now yeah right now this will get they did they come out here and things i mean you kind of want one of those guys cooking their paws they are big supporters of that suddenly obviously they support is is that what you won the that must've yeah so they're like yeah yeah yeah for sure i anytime anybody comes and tries itself any other part it's just pretty much the automatic 'cause we love them so frawley all the demand in meat is great so it sounds like you've done a good for you guys have trouble be on either it's a struggle we were on forty four farms for a little while and they cut back in we've since which darpa brand which is we'd love is well good a it is a little different but different distributors out here we can get some things through texas something's not protect you know it's it's a little tougher for sure it did when you unraveling versus what what lets you know like you just marveling or tremor that's what i the harboring got the butcher processed the way they presented to you out of the package is morgan to understand on as trim say a marble yeah there it is i mean you you have a lot less when you're tremendous if you have a lot less questioning going on you're just yeah bussing amount and knocking amount it's easy to to work with pressure there yeah yeah it's great when you guys were wrapping they really nice good a you think it's interesting that the world is i mean there's there's versus against china japan you think it's interesting that this thing that no one cared about not too long ago is now worldwide craze you guys get people coming from all over the world we do other we'll make sure i guess really big ben so you know people are coming from all over the world to see big ben but when they come in here they're like oh we want brisket and then they do kind of explaining to them like they're like oh first of all the here's we want brisket but it doesn't necessarily mean they know what they want they want the point but then you kind of ethics funny tone and that's where are cutter comes in important he explained it to him he you know feeling rundown but we do see a big a wide sorry i'm more of a wide range of curious coming out to marathon a big men that their interest in the brisket unlike incident barbecue and it's recently i mean a film history some i guess i know i'm sure there's some of the smell like i'm from someplace and i'm blown away when i had the food i wasn't expecting it to be bad 'cause i saw the pictures and this is really good auditor like you heard it here folks long and hard like tough communication and then it you know you you you know you then we in the dnc smile thank you but people it'll come up in to see the pitch we had this pit out here in open for a while so it's like super inviting the come up and walk up and see what was going on in every almost at you it seemed like every person who is foreign those walking through like i go check about what's going on in here i gotta check this nope we open it up you know when you when you know about it in ninety nine percent of the world they only see tiny versions of this home depot so when you see him on the lou is expanding one of those frank man's it's kinda cool because you're also just cool i mean it's cool to see just a ton of me you know open up until just like whoa look at all the you all have a challenge with people out here about selling out more of it that it's pretty sure that's a problem a problem yeah he's from everywhere especially but when you whenever i guess you're either going down in the park or coming from coming from for davis were coming from albino like oh you're ready out oh sorry about having read and then you you feel bad but you're like hey man like only fit so much and then like people were here's why not the door and you can only do so much it's good but you also feel bad it's a bummer not having like a place across the street then you're like well were sorry you know but there's some you could being so hard people do travel fritter and then show up and you have a pretty good sense of demand other days where it's like because a little bit a pretty unpredictable water we wanna say there we have it down but we don't it'll change weekly he is it because of events or moving i think this is whether has to do with the big ben there's gonna be a nice win were gonna get you know we're gonna get a lot of traffic is also if there's something going on tomorrow in alpine or here will have more traffic but even weeks so we don't think we're gonna be busy will sell out it's just hard it's hard now i mean it's been hard the whole time but especially with us being so isolated and then you have a line open to like move all right let's go you know it's good to have people at the door but at the same time it's hard to judge out here yeah for sure we figured out food so that that come from you know you're working with a barbecue ever deals together and they are a millionaire retirement yeah it's it's it's a british coming together here it's it's a lot of the rich brothers yeah it's just kind of learn on the fly mean we didn't cook anything i love barbecuer cutting so we kinda learn backwards like what it should look like what it should cut like a and then were ready to cook it obviously we i think so yeah i mean that have the idea of a finished product in know what goal is is helpful measure a and then take step backwards and it's a dog and give the hardest part is like you know when you pull that thing off when you when is it done when is not over done mhm and if you cut it then you know attack tile sensation you know what it feels like when it's done you know where the tender bruschi feel right yup you guys preferred hold it a little bit before you server or you kind of you know finishing a few hours before i guess at some of the places now they finish at midnight hold it for ten hours oh sam along the way we'll williams is that just gives me some of its own juices again and yeah but also i mean you said earlier people don't like it when you run out right so just being ready way ahead of time with everything way ahead of time much better than trying to beat the clock service you know i'm pulling off risk it's you know on saturday morning that's not good says it's like i'm way behind something went wrong last night this become like we put him on friday morning friday night they rest on their 'perfect in the morning and then were just ready to go so that that seems to be the the way people do it now it's interesting because there's no lines out the door for like literally what they pull it off one hour before that so yeah burger so yeah i see some that's the cool thing about snow says they like break all the rules and it's so great the break all the rules over one day a week yeah and i'm i'm missing like i usually just know so yeah i'm sorry i'm sorry on any of it i think it's worth it i got it the drive out here yeah role is the barbecue here i'll give me a little office jeremy here so are you guys seen a rise in like people showing up i know there's all these people have no idea of water or what but extorted people i actually i saw someone asks play its nose hair these moberg smokers and so people are starting to get the stairs like builders yeah there's off the barbecue and you see more knowledge is you're meeting people yeah for sure i mean it's just about how they display that knowledge well you never wanna hear the god is like oh i wanna competition in kansas city here's a we get that austin less less knowledge moberg and more a person home backyard liberties regroup yup yup to tell everyone up in assumes were kicking mosquito no yeah i'll go up and it's like no no you what's the predominant mosquito yeah is it a cookie so you know i don't like it we got a hot fast and it's a we've been a yeah we we've been forced to from time to time it's it's tough to get get out here for sure relearn we saw some close off the postal carrier now so you guys get a shift in well we get shipped infancy meal sometime but now we've been gonna get i mean will go get in front of screwed splitter over there so we gotta do in the best log splitters in the game yeah i'm not one of the best long i'm not giving anything away but in front of him very well period where the smokes road really all i'm trying to burn up all their big he's trying to get the big in long island man is what i'm sure it's a is there a reason why he goes like the little small just oh you have a couple of these different pits around here and it's easy the other ones require a little bit more attention the deep financial year yeah you gotta have some you could work with the the big pet doesn't mind the the little log so it works out yeah he's again so it is dangerous working at a barbecue place is also very is it hard to say no to the facts i'm dreaming one right yeah i would say i would say dangerous to yeah i mean you're you're drinking beers if you're cooking barbecue wherever you're going but it's convenient we have it has good beer russia should we drag her brother over here yeah here's a lot take my my 'cause i'm gonna call that how john lewis we all have on that one is i gotta tell you about that we endorse him if you're all right we just durban were veering pull it out like a little bit so i must have missed you guys with the barbecue you look you look familiar when they got here you must have seen me that at least one probably at least you know that's the first barbecue place i ever went to like in austin i said wait in line when there was no line first you guys when you were already there is a wind everyday nice and that was a quickie those before the trailer grocery okay across the street gotcha so that's where you guys were there and we had like that brennan was i i think are first interview of the show was brennan he he shut up like two or three hours after i would say like when he got the story and that was that was the the first interview is waiting three hours for brennan lambda show in would leave a guess i'm pretty happy being out out here in the country for sure it's been awesome yeah and i change of pace a unified you can't really compare i used to come out here ten years ago and compared to that that you really have you've got this cool grocer you got all these little towns of blowing up restaurants and hotels and convenience west so there's two good barbecue place low here at least had at least there's a million and a half and you guys were giving me the scoop on some good tacos and fort stockton hunters energy for suction super legit so how a tacos oj's i like you guys go there once a week or how far away is that from here in our drive we go like once a month brawley that's it yeah sometimes more like driving through will sometimes ordered get it to go it's a little already in the car but we make it happen anyway and they do most of the tacos or what yeah i mean their menu is is pretty unreal when you first see it it's a they do they do it'll get into all that is doc is there jane i'm not gonna ever that's actually a menu item is the tacos those it yeah and if you go you have to you what almost kind of have to wear it is it is it like it's like a breeze laundry oh yeah like universal orange and like orange juice in no no i think it's some like man that's a really good cook beef rush fresh crunchy onions or what's on tap they got cucumbers on their really rush hours give it a bad ask ranch in yeah their estimate salon tro yeah it's legit so how do you besides cooking barbecue of her twelve fourteen hours straight how do you how do you stay busy out and marathon texas that's a hard question we like to play golf but you know the courses are closed monday days so that's one of are off days samuel jaylo sucks right so tuesdays will tell you that a mundane is good outline rides marins a that true value is huge shoot i thought they fixed the helped me fix my camp though once on those big ben broke yeah they're legit yeah it's a serious problem apps yeah yeah yeah you you you wanna have a so you wouldn't have are there a you know we've got a burner on all this stuff going it's pretty green out i guess there's much of a burn ban right now now it's gotten a good amount of rain honestly i inhale which is unfortunate you got you got ended up we've got some holes in the no this is built on little regress rocks upstairs old in detroit the texture really i like through the windshield everything not the windshield tail lights a side mirrors well lots of cable sitting outside when this without an a there's fossils that supports a cable or frankly west texas weather is extra system but it is it is it just comes in and out of nowhere what is coming you were a little bit but you'd never expect what it's gonna bring and sometimes it's a little worse then you have you had to hide under bridges and stuff not personally but i've tried yeah we've tried to put are we there's not a whole lot of coverage out here when it comes vehicles so a lot of garages and not let a garage and so we do our best but i've only become afraid of lightning since we've lived here because you look around and you're like there's nothing that's that told this should strike before it strikes me that you could see it coming and you're like oh shit going to they were driving in we had these i even looked on the radar and they were like just dots and it must be the road must create heat or something 'cause they literally followed like a curve in the road and we just had him one after the other and some were heavy rains someone were totally cool summer like crazy cross wins yeah there's joey was yelling at so we also pro patrice by the way that yeah what did i usually atlanta dream did you all know you were gonna do this you wanna get the hell out of town and then he from this place of what you know what i mean we've lived in austin all her life so getting out of town is nice for sure not the main reason we get left but we saw an opportunity which came first leaving here or brick well the first of all we left off some chicken chicken little here but yeah we wanted it you know you must like philly came all the way i heard the worker are interview yeah it's not a bad loss at did you come out interview he talked on the phone interview in about three weeks later we're here actually botch some risk it's on interview yeah ever tried to figure this direct keep it out would only thing in the room when we interviewed this whole thing were screened offered here and it was just this bit and we took the sat down at first avenue is i mean we'd never we have a winner rolling his eyes hey you have to learn i used to so what chips to you know it's sometimes these podcasts are place where all of a sudden just confessor old barbecue so you have to screw it all up before you can like have any idea what you're doing right yeah you have to fail ethically i think that's i think that's where most things there's a bunch of episodes of this podcast no one will ever hear that were pretty much useless sometimes like going in the competition you just go in and you hear about some guys who you know they've got trophies lining their whole little tent and then you go and the guys just wasted couldn't care less this year they're walks away and i'm just like okay this is this is this is fun this is never gonna hear a have have you had any interesting people here at dave grohl likes barbecue i know he's been traveling around reviewed dave roger that would have even as he hasn't come yet a you have some interesting people you see people from me people from like the power someplace you never be yeah yeah we get people around the world a which is pretty surprised i guess big ben's a pretty big destination go jail and so you know some people just don't stop there they just got a big band people stay at the gauge i see a lot of people staying at the gauge after their big ben drifter you know shower inhabit actional dangerously dan in front of you could probably one of the reasons that that hotel so it's a nice hotel so they know like if you crank it up a little bit everyone's been deprived of yeah looking at a border checkpoint i can't get over like how filthy that makes me feel i don't have the crawl across the border i'm not politically but i'm just like i'm still in texas and i'm a texan and i'm going american companies go home yeah stopped thumbing your dog sniffed me it's weird right after they were a you guys go big ben how much are you here most days a week i know you were here mondays and tuesdays off but yeah so a arnaiz off we i've been once since i've lived here which is been a year now and a big ben's beautiful spot i've really when did you get a bookie if you're crossing and that's only open wednesday through sunday so nice that's been a difficult challenge that you gotta make one more reese brother is that you gotta find the the lost brother and get to smarmy barbecue you're coming prosper for awhile ago a what do what do you like stories about bookie us i've never been oh so he wanna go i wanna get gotcha yes i mean can you you drive there even get there i guess you cross on a you can drive there you drive there but there's also a crossing from big ben joining joining us give us even take a bird relational our look this is checkpoint and then they they take you in like you've been about rider you can like a robot kenny like get drunk and burke here's what do you think oh yeah any food and you're drunk and they only we've been planning on going on sunday the only issue is we both get grounded in the beliefs were stuck there oh wow okay i said so that's been a mastermind that's a good way to get a get out of work though i'm becky area that i'm gonna drink another margarita and cry about it i love my passport i'm gonna be here for a while it is there there must be a like a road i guess there's one little road from mexico that goes to ps like 'cause there's no way like it's it's not cut off but when you look on the map there's like there's barely anything there it's like cut off at the river and then if you get you pay someone to take you across the river to the checkpoint and then you're yeah i met a guy the last time it at big band we met a guy we kinda like the the river was low and we've talked to him about how we all had a terrible spanish that we just kinda talked and played with his pit bull and then went back to america and yeah it's crazy to think like the borders right there yeah it's pretty great i mean i think it's awesome jail and just having a surplus and it's a big it's a big thrill ferocity voiced by the border you think it's funny that the two of you ended up quitting wherever q not necessarily did you always kinda like have the same interests yeah we definitely have been have the same interests and i guess lost in college not what the fuck you're gonna do you did you hear the college but when you t okay so you really never left austin no no what's wrong with these guys right it sounds like did you travel much when you were growing up right yeah yeah decent amount of today what part of austin you grow up in all over the place i mean we we knew elian left mainly west dawson high chair that off not nice right downtown yeah i play tennis there a couple of times i mean that's a it's a cool spot it's a it's interesting how is helping someone with some volunteer stuff and we had to go to the school and it's like it's like a fortress now is like security cowley before you even go in prison at feels like some say plus the kids probably agree with you yeah well were out here in marathon marathon american and you guys ended up out here evans out here cookie and you wanna you come join us again over the the reef the the race brothers are a key but you're name's bigger big bold letters what would you like to know what's it like being living you're a so i work at a food truck these guys actually so brick and mortar like adam primary i'm the one who's envious of them you kidding me i tell you i any a dishwasher inside really nice it looks really nice is a dishwasher you don't actually detract amiss yeah we're machine or like we watched it i tom bradley we collectively wash dishes you upgrade of the other ones really to were handed over easy competitions well no no we're not gonna go crazy like they were gonna get a big twentyfifth trailing input are five hundred gallon in this chat box on feed from kohl's from one of the other health department says you don't have one trailer out there so we've got up above among wondering that yeah will build the defense resident do that or what yeah he'll probably do ninety percent of work when i say we i mean brad that a welder it's amazing it's amazing that he's super passionate about it in a he's he's awesome he anytime we have you know something wrong 'cause and we do have things going wrong with a good cause i built it a big you know just thinking of running behind me and sleeping on my trash and fix fix the mistake so that's a no no no no it's only like i dunno once every now and again you know it's just like a general maintenance things i thought you added some stuff to it frees more gonna wizards have different so jeep it put like a different smokestack on it and stuff no said the same smokestack 'em you didn't you seven five bucks stores open door that's georgia's been yeah now has nice door with their biggest investments skill you could cook good barbecue on you know you made a i mean that's how it works truly well first of all a weather with work cooks really good barbecue hasn't quite falling apart 'em i dunno it depends if you have they completely trashed pet it's hard to produce something good on it it's more of a challenge have a really good at it just makes it easy so you just pour it all the time and then that's when each rather cool stuff on we were talking about that throughout the big rig snack throwing screen yeah hotdogs never i don't support hotdogs a i don't know what else i like doing a little flap the salmon on their every now and then smoked fish are you a bronco is cooks ridgewood of ribs on her menu so he's always been like a river after yeah usually spares a male sometimes sunday back you a you have a certain spot you put those two more hot or no i kinda liked the baby back ribs i mean did you give him a lot of smoke wait till they render the against the ticket glassy they may be flipping over if you want wrapping up some people flipping some people don't let me wrap new wrapping some people doubt smuggle rap on you guys and the we don't flip w do app near apor fall well is that just kind of like blasted the less or you get the game where you want yeah we cook i'm pretty we let him go for quite a while so they're they're relatively tender when they go in full but it just kind of help some finishing in the holding them in the oil is helpful we do sauce and little apple cider in water then spread said it's the fall works out for that spreads right support like this was a kind of removing reintroducing most right but this is the best on the cook days he's everything running a little better for sure it's hard to say humid out here since were from the austin we'd like felt it so intensely spent the last week and then skidding more humid out here i'm indiana will say humid out here in dry i mean we got it's really nice right now philip group so there's a there's really no austin whether or not that is what twelve fifteen years ago and it was just like desert were three summers well i mean this is gonna be crazy swings in temperatures we called gimme colder the high i think it'd be out of the thunder storms are gonna be worse it's called global warming folks it's real effects is gonna get the climate change and we've we've had some of the biggest swing looking at something about that it's not it's storms have gotten intense lately everywhere but at the same time there's thing is interesting because i know the catalog here's gotta be get fat green green grass everywhere the hey is probably super good it's probably really i mean i i've been out here a dozen times maybe i don't i can't remember one time where else like everything's great fiber rose green screen everything in any direction is kinda cool yeah like i don't even know it's a pretty place in this whole grains reassure a you guys got looks like the longest run you you might do like in a day just go to the french connection here what you guys were trips you'd like to say yeah i mean we take dangerous on her off days basically every every day they were off way they're good alpine gotta more shocked and depending on what we need a but yeah he does get a we don't yeah we don't shop a whole lot of fresh grocer no wherever i mean if we're grabbing a twenty six dollar eighteen packs are not never a what's what's the the things you do know they have you done i've never been any diner we haven't been there now what what let's go to oakland spot is a reality upon it's like very similar to what we have is tell here's that's like chicken fried steaks steaks burgers yeah yeah texas plessey at this dinner at a chicken fried steak yes i did it was delicious you have health and you're grabbing jalapeno do you think there's a way to that's that is a shocker using a river exists which chicken fried steak 'em chicken fried steak they dish is a little heavy i think i would i dunno there's something a little bit fresh on top domestic on i know maybe just like a little like a little herb salad or just just a little something that's got some brightness to it homicide might be nice yeah we're at convenience west pickles and onions and yeah i heard on you a circumcise even had like a it's like a ruthless oh yeah nice together kind of a fresh crunch by that there is some vegetables on the side of the plate i all those 'em anyone's guess they do a bad job asides sides mixing it up yeah for sure so on this show we talk a lot about you know you're message to the people out there you message to enthusiasts if you've learned it rooms have you been watching this on youtube what's your message to i mean i've been here here in the season guy you got some young whippersnappers here their ambition getting the game a you know what you're messing with salesman there's people out there that it's gonna get where you're at 'em while i'm still trying to get where they're adam and say that again because they have very good morning to drug but but they invited guests of each other a i would say two things first of all find a niche do something unique you know making could make a difference i would also say season all sides here brisket man see some of on the grand these people immediately decides they're brilliant port but you're shy bass you're gonna give me a burned out when the seasoning on it so they're just doing their bottom or what yeah all sides sacrilege everywhere no score you're on a never evening and also every side anything else you're you're very passionate about free does on every single slides in every single one that works on everyone prove me wrong and that messes with the guys the one where i can keep it simple to do what needs to be done but don't i i don't know we we were not bound by a lot of like tradition ernie style of being out here but at the same time keeping it simple we can end doing german check stuff and and also paying respects that is is cool i think you know keep like watching a fire for fifteen hours you know in in being passionate about being there for fifteen hours you don't give a shit while you're there attention to detail little things but i yeah i dig the old school approach and like the you know we just burn off stick offset burners yeah very very small little kids yup twig forgeries what they call me yeah no i think just using an er works works and as long as you're passionate about it again like that's all that matters you love cooking i think that's where it's all about or whatever and then you got the reason for this have anything in stories in the change it up you all right here you could give you some tips well recipes might have in the world is trying to pick his brain you know just not it's not like right now my best portrayed as well i appreciate it feels like you know he's are is are background lesser a and i appreciate you guys you know so it's cool to see barbecue growing and running around the state in the country it's just the two stories will be here and lots of stars take take my time i hear american has we appreciate you coming coming hangs listen to the cricket they let you go through the same thing all

King George | Welsh National | Festive Racing Preview | Racing Postcast

"Here at Patty power with the home of the money back special with some incredible offers every single week. Check out the website or APP today. Terms and conditions apply eighteen plus plus begun to walk home once again. How welcome today's Monday post cast? I'm Lee Melissa. Said and I am standing in yes mighty not available today having a day off but Stuart Roddy well calling from the racing post is. He's very much a viable is is David Jennings and is from Ospel and says potty power is Frank Heiki and we have some fantastic festive steve racing for two over the Christmas period. And before we do that though we're going to have a quick look back with three minutes on the weekend weekend at We'll start with David. David ask you on Saturday. The pre-christmas 'cause no good rising did anything `catch-your-eye for the future did anything catch me for the future not necessarily with Chapman millions. I taught the the March hard was obviously but disappointed. And both my old buddy lamb surged. Did boss Lami surge. Tends to do I think he gets own fair press. I really do so so fan. Let me search okay. I will defend defend all Lami surge types which you could put all that category this various other horses that you can input into that category. Okay yeah why are these horses called rogues okay yeah. There's a lot of people who say hired two boats Lami surged are rogues their absolute. It robes are fakes. Okay they are given absolutely everything that they can they want to raise. They want to go as fast. Wants to everything everything they want to run from you and yet the of horses like Dino's being of this world whereas mccaw you had to absolutely beat the living daylights out of them to get them to move under heroes with a horse light. LemMe such as soon as Nico picked up the whip. He stopped yet. But that's because he's given you everything he can without the Whip uh-huh that's my point. My point is these horses that gives you everything they can with. The jockey happened to resort to pressure. A rogue's I'm yet your horses. Who need all the pressure we can get to get them to give their best and their heroes? I just think there's a little bit of a flawed system there when we kind of fish these reputation do you see I do and I think he thought she a beautiful philosophical sentiment as well in days gone by. Dj You would have been a huge fan of green Green Green Green Desert back to Greenland DOJ pole. Yeah Jimmy Green Green Green Green. We'll from Green Green Desert. Let's go into the Green Green Grass of Kempton Nsen Park on boxing days. George Day on both say fantastic. Enjoy before we get to the king. George let's look at the supporting great ones the first of which One fifty five is the lab. Books Co star Novices Chase Dj. I know you have your for Christmas in this race. But we'll just keep the views and listeners. Waiting waiting for two seconds and first of all Stuart Riley the Corto star the Felton. That walls discuss cracking race. Isn't it. You've got black off in their slate house house back in NOVUS company The Nichols to catch my eye obviously pulled US incredibly well this time of year Had Danny any whizbang in shorter in the betting. The Harry Cobb Dan has opted for master. tommytucker massively caught my eye less experienced of well I mean by fairly light on experience but yeah he he he's the one that I would be signing with at this stage News from Paul Nicholls. Why not she Appearing on the writing platforms a little bit close to boxing day but he was saying and earlier on today in today's Monday impost CASS world. The Danny Whizbang. He sees as proper old-fashioned staying chaser. He put him in because the ground at the moment is soft. It'd be dries out. Potentially he might come out Kamata Tommytucker classy horse One of two multi less time and it went very soft. He administered by but two strong strong candidates for the Koto Star from digit. Dj is your big boxing day. One of the two nickels. Oh Yeah Oh yeah master Tommy Tucker this I think this could be a star. I really do an a couple of different reasons. Why him so sweet? A Master Tommy Tucker first of all the top two. The Americas are the as as our friend grave. Rodway would say enough to solid options in this race like slave house. I was disappointed with last time. I'm not sure he's a proper grade. HARSE black up. I had to run the race avenue. Brie I'm still win when you consider all the went wrong with champ. And then you come onto Mr Tommy. Toker who to me did remarkably whether to win over to money to around Kempton to get back up to beat who dares wins the race. Look to me getting away from this is absolutely Ludi crying for three miles around attract like Kempton on. This is not a strong renew liberation. All you don't take no. I think he could be exceptional. I really do. I was praying praying that he would be declared. Obviously Dainius was in there on master. Tommytucker Baltimore declared you obviously think that maybe one of the might run both. I just prayed master. Tommy took runs. He's got a hold on. He's a tone strap on. This is the day I think we will all realize that master Tommy Tucker is a potential parts of the future. I think he's a star on. I'd be disappointed. It doesn't win. Oh Dj tremendously bullish about muster. Tommy took two great names. must've told me took it on. Danny Whizbang EH. Looking great names of Nichols naming the second grade while we're GONNA look at on boxing day as the ladbrokes Christmas hurdle hurdle David Jennings. You said. It wasn't a strongest Kutai starts not strongest Christmas Hood Law. There is no. It's not no it's kind of interesting isn't it. It's it's every year it was bouvard air was going to be long. It's on and said this is. This is more open and more intrigue and I think I like fusing raffles what I came him at the priciest. No absolutely not I don a blue. I'd be a little bit worried about the ground for the fact that we haven't seen it for quite a while at look. I'm a big Fan of EPA towns. I'm not saying he's a good thing or anything like this in this race. But she's she's got the that the swagger To to make to the top just loved him what she found off the bridal industry Jerry At newbury alot of time she. She responded to pressure you know she hit the lion hired on it just at least it got away the idea the at that she was just a Philly I think she called me very good weather. This is just a little bit too early in her education. I'm not sure I will be having to abandon the race. It'd be hoping that EPA. Tom Can win and I think she's potentially the sexiest horse in the race as already could just be year too early but I hope she wins sports. Jay Payment Monitor ask on Sunday for features. Each that Stewart's hold onto the racing post. He said EPA. Tom was his tip of. Hey sources for the Christmas period. I'm sure he wouldn't have a handicapped. Good thing Cassani wasn't telling me about say we'll say appetite is a good thing for Christmas. The Christmas odal. Yeah I mean it's Nicky Henderson dominated a As this division quite often is in Britain I think like every time I look at this race I just keep coming back to Vidana blue and thing like why are we ignoring the blatantly. The obvious She's five pounds clear of everything else in the race on official ratings. She gets seven pounds from pretty much all of them. She's incredibly well in on that front. She won the race Nausea Austria against the Horse. Who would be heavy odds on lining up here like what I would move adobe in this race and shared the beating of him last year like I just I think looking at these ninety two about her is a very tasty price and why overcomplicated? I'm will you be having a bad. I will be backing he will will be backing. Vidana blew a DJ. Not WanNa be I you with Vidana blue on the old leases then two three five the King George order six chase the reason why Stanford is all the presence on Christmas Day on boxing. I hummed. Inga Advocate George. Small Select Field Stewart. Roddy body to superstars from the poor Nichols Yard Superstars from the Colin Tizzard yard which of those two yards if either of them is going to win the king. George coach. Yeah I mean I. I do think it's going to come down to those two yards burt. Everyone seems to be writing pad and Willie mullins and that. That's a pretty potent combination as well so I do just want to give them a mention but I do think it comes down to to the nichols big to versus lost in translation. To be honest I don't see thistle cracked getting involved as lovely as that would be a just thing he'll probably though they'll find him out in this chair now should wacky. She may well to and you know it's it's just one of those things he wasn't he wasn't able to be kind as oboe. Lashed declined as ibos arguably going to be better. This year this will crack Com was so I just just I've I've outgrow him out and not keep it between surname lost in translation inclined as I buy and I think I mean surnames. The obvious one on form. He's looked sensational off the wall. That three very good horses and the way client as ovo traveled through this race last year it was a serious performance like that was one of the most visually impressive impressive performances overall of last season. So I think this race suits him down to the ground and the prices. He's very tempting something I do think that one of the other two may have his beating and I would probably side with surname as I recall then has but the prices are aw. I'm getting more and more tempted by clammed as okay not necessarily convinced you win but the price is you think he's the value proposition I do at the moment. Yeah Okay Okay David Jennings. CNI first of all. Does he stay. Yeah he probably wear late. Imagine look I copied completely wrong here and I thought would be easily at at ask us on. Didn't I'm. I'm just not convinced by surname. I'm really not convinced about and the factors. You know these big performance of us off the fact that right going back to to to the big Jule that was out your fee surname and at no stage you know stage watching the race was located. Algae are going. This is the best horse we've seen in the last couple of years. It was lethargic his jumping was per. He looked everything looked effort that they I talked I was never happy. I'm since transpired. Obviously has worked since race. Hasn't been gold and the vibes have been very percents on all your team realty on the day. That was a two horse race. Harry Cobb was interviewed after the race and he said obviously potassium performance. What a brilliant ours wouldn't quote? That I thought was interesting. I wasn't really happy in the first part of the race and I thought that was quite interesting and I go back to the form of UH spectacular win over waiting waiting patiently. I think there was a lot of stairs in that race. That likes to wait impatiently Fox nor was in their police log just think he still has approved like look. I would absolutely love as as he can win the race for twenty lanes and he's the next call to star. Opponents is an unbelievable trainer. I am very much taken. Surname your name on. I don't think he'll finish into I too am I tink lost in translation should be favors on. I think he is by far the most likely winner. The rates all you think we witness a two spectacular novice chasers last year in Lawson's Asian deputy. So they're form time and time again has been Frank Deford assault. He's been burning this season as has lost in translation. The people wounded were lost in translation. Have enough speed for for for the king. George Repeat Defeat assault over two and a half miles in the dipper chat. He's got more than enough pace. He's versatile tactics while I just wonder what tests the crack in there. The Way to win this race couple years ago even his good run in the race last year when when crack was ridden aggressively opened the pace. You just. I wonder Snapping on a unhurried captain said he was the whole way for the first month of the race. Now certain Coby coby star. Kobe Bush to me just hasn't done it for me yet. Gloss transition's GonNa win this Towns ob second. I think he's rock-solid on debt. I think I think I think Sarah. I'm Kobe founded look as a Kobe completely wrong but that's my opinion and it was a very well expressed opinion as well. Oh so we've got a big tit for lost in translation for DJ in the George. Junior liens Wisconsin days. Oh that's fair isn't it. Yeah the mind okay. What about Julie? I think it's a fascinating race like you I would prob- lean towards lost in translation. Spoke with this morning who again basically used the AMA. He said listen last seat. And we didn't even have been the always chase US ruling against deficits through the best to multi more fulfilling British Novice Chaser last season CNI He looks fantastic. Hose and are probably won't be as as quick to question his ability as you just think I think he generally you want you're looking for May or may go kaput Kinjo choice. They Kempton is a much stiffer. stiffer tests than people give critical because they go flat-out Jenry from start to finish on. I think lost insurance is probably the most solid the two to fix waste but a fantastic race and really looking forward to and I'm also looking forward to the Irish Johnson Stevens Day and some one to know wonderful novus before we get onto to Leopardstown David Limerick. We've got That that that big rice great one hollered limerick season. I'm potentially going overboard. It could be the best roy at Limerick as ever stayed with Faheen versus some much betting exchange. Yeah it's a cracker. It's it's one of them that you are hoping that was obviously the race at that percent of the race limerick. He didn't know who was going to go to their present. Who Go to Limerick but just in the last couple of days? It's been shaping up that it was going to be Llerena factor to diarrhea at said and then fucking peacetime Croat limit and like it's so fascinating. Donate like us because like these are probably terms and conditions. You know heavy grounds two and a half miles limerick you know. That's his this. This is his thing is going to be tried within a couple of days. And you're dealing with a Horse Lake Sam crow who I think we know. He has all the ability in the world. It's getting that ability. Autobahn I think he would one the dream more easily I think he would have beaten fact with Ariza he stood up. He shouldn't have fallen. He really shouldn't have fallen. It really annoyed me. He should've find the lake. I didn't either is the part of that just needs to just man opener you know. He needs to just say it comes up right. I'm season chase are eyeing the real deal on a needs improvement improve it instead of this. bullyish stuff that he's been doing at to me. I'm I'm very very forgiven. And I'm going to give him a chance. I'd be bitterly disappointed. If these beaten uh-huh hearts to start in two thousand within a couple of days I'll be one of the best horses we've seen in our lifetime but for me. It is Samuel but your message to miss your Christmas message asylum grow as Mono Mono just just go and show us the ability you have noticed like every two more questions and dancers we start the answered some of these questions well. I'm not sure what he didn't explosive. That David Byrne but even so stewart some cry or fine the massively would be with samco account have seen Tal Light. I think as David mentioned his age he hasn't horse. He wants while he was fantastic. 'cause he's still beason SAMCO should absolutely smashing. This could be a situation where like Sam Cook could be able to get really massive number here because he is a good schools or the hurdles. Yeah but I mean he's he's been decent enough over expenses too. I didn't like the way he jumped last time time. Crow fell on his last start but realistically he's not he's looked really competent fences whereas heen looked a bit that mistake and then got a bit nervous last time. I just think I'm crow. Oh has the speed on. Emi's everything enemies go age on his side and I and also given the nature of the race because it's small field. Oh Jack Hannity has to do is worry about Kahin. Follow him around come upside and to just go away from him and I could see him putting a really healthy being on a kite. So I'M GONNA go slutty off script now produced this album because he says oh my favorite grains the one time. But I'm going to go see this link into the other great one chase. Nobody's taking place in Ireland. On savings day the wonderfully titled Racing Post Novice Chase and again a fabulous contest. You LLERENA factory notebook. Look and also in their jingle and royal rendezvous hunting. Rigorous is cracking rice. Isn't it this is what you want. This is what these grade ones. The over the festive period the Dublin racing and then Cheltenham like this is what you want from them. You want these really good horses taking each other on you. Don't on one picking one race and other picking another in the moment in the spring. This is cracking. You've got three seriously exciting prospects and then and it's one of those races you can make a case for three because the opposition so good you can pick holes in all three and that's where it just like. This is what reasons all about your excited. I I love this race. This is a crack. You read it. Nobody who wins. That's the tough question isn't it. You go round and round in circles on that. I saw it on the thing that I find really interesting about. This race is notebook in fact there are two of the horses who've put in some of the best jumping I've seen from a novice in the long time they both been exceptional sentences this season. So that's going to put an awful lot of strain and pressure on the jumping and because they jumped so well fail it's GonNa come down to those two I could could I. I'm not ruling out arena. Still coming pass them by. If I had to side with one of them I might go with. Henry has also night book. We've been really really impressive. Walking from inside phone okay. David Jennings I F- Had Cheltenham Festival. antepost wager on Fakhir. Doodo retour in the racing post article local on like going to be happy with that bets off the two twenty leopardstown on since Stevens. Sure look you could be he's a very very good horse. WHO's a terrific jumper ice fancy Lorena the yeah looks? Don't be dopey. Moyo opinion puts a little bit to be no faculty area like that jump in display various. I think if I wasn't in there we'd all be saved. They've central jump fine but it was just he was taking a look so slow through the air. It was unbelievable. It was a terrific trump. Play but you look at arena. I I just see the Saudis of our and the scope that she has and look back on the champion hurdle was probably ridiculous that she started five to two ruby was never taught you. Travelled at all jared at that race it was always going to be that would make another factor. The diaries knock at ninety rate waste. They're racing off levels sued him. And you know Daca form into Gowran. Park beaten Albeit Manila was first day at school. Over fences Rachel Watson hired him. You know it was dropped on perfectly respectable chasing Debbie from Indo who the needs further but the radio was quite slick. I know she was quite low over few fence. Home Straight but to me in a Williams win this race He's wounded with some pretty good horses over the years on everything to me like we're guessing we are guests Arena but everything that I've seen from. I'm hurt suggests to me to see copious over fence. Maybe hopefully a bit like sample in Limerick disc will be the day where Llerena finally tells us that she is the real deal diving five it just little Question really didn't have to find a rice. Faheen Llerena would be going in the limerick race every two and a half no because I think he runs his best top top arkell chance industries. Like if you go to pass winners that he's had in this race at full one seventeen sixteen obviously do the fifteen Go back to every collegiate air blacks term so his best too much runs in the racing post associates. So that's why Llerena is here. Okay and Willy running a newcomer to hurdles in the greater juvenile hall at one ten in. Yeah Yeah. She's like this is quite good race. You've got away with the city in there and think aspire tower could be very good point and I think even I put in the paper I talked twenty to one party was a big vice spire tower very very impressive on Debut got up to America of eighty eighty six. When trained by Steve Gollings in the flat fast enough to win over minus one there was a horse that sadly slipped when it made her debut at I'm Kinda run away Rachel blackmore for the I kind of you know four or five Over the final Mayan I taught. His Job was absolutely brilliant and the fact that he was so keen in the first part of the race instill hot Chilled from the home. Turn on the inside track at Punchestown. Talk a really really good performance and I take aspira. Tarik will be very good twenty two one for the big price to me. Ku interesting stuff and Steve us in that race Not Particularly No. I wouldn't claim to be the biggest form buff when it comes to juvenile Al Irish formed. The only thing I would point out is Brendan. There aren't many talking up. A horse. Then Brendan but he came out with some cracking quotes this week about Clemenza events here saying he believes is all the way to the top thought. That was interesting but yeah I'd I'd be more than happy to follow. Dj Jay Glorious Okay. I'm before we end Paul One. But again to Frankie for Hayes views on Leopard's town on Stevens night on the twenty six December leopardstown in the Frank. Nice to nine hardly a grey to The one I like here is aspire tower for Henry. Brown has now he was very useful. On the flash he was a winner of a numerical nursery for more than the far along for Richard Hunting off of AC as a two year old for three year old career on the flat he switched to Steve. GOSLINGS run a very solid season without actually winning was placed numerous times off Max in the mid eighties finished third in a listed race in Hammonton as well Before switching itching to Henry debris has for her career note his hurting debut was probably the most impressive harding road. I've seen by juvenile this season and that includes Goshen who everyone's falling over themselves far. I was very keen in the race. He got a slightly hampered and lit up early bind into and ran off the course force after being so cain attain Quinn the harshest Comington after the second last. He's going to fall a little bit of a whole overtaken but he actually did. He kicked on and one tortilla thanks. That farm looked radically strong the second FDIC docker was very well back from double figures overnight into eleven to four fracture more they rarely leave the bony after the house is one of the flash on the previous start as well so it was in farm and obviously they find his chances. Undeterred Wolf Prints actually one very easy in his next start so as far as terrorist. I find it Leopardstown. I actually think he's value in the triumph of the market is right at the moment checkout potties rewards club simply place five beds ten pounds or more across any sport in a week and you get a free ten pound you bet then next week teams he's apply. AJ PLAGUE DOT Org. Welcome back everybody looking ahead to the festive action on this Monday. Postcards with Marissa's colleagues to Roddy on on Debbie Jennings on Frank Hickey from Patty power the big betting race in Britain on December twenty seven th which I mean say he's critic Friday's and it is the choral Welsh grand national. Typically wide open affair elegant escape eight had in the whites and the anti post betting Stuart Riley Go through the wash national fours and delivers with a winner. Oh Nice and he's a Christian. Thank you very much Yeah well start with elegant escape thing. That's the obvious place to start. Obviously a classy horse really made for these staying. Our tests is so of race. That just screams out. I think talk white heavy ground round chaps though is going to be a tough ask for any horse but if anyone can do is probably him. There's a few others of interest in there. I know that you're a fan of now McKinsey. I am Truck Lodge is interesting with local Williams taking off three. That caught my uh-huh Christian Williams. He's quite keen on one that I really liked. I mean that's the other collins is our hosts West approach look great at Cheltenham runs in. This'll correct colors. That are behind us and you know I thought ran a really really impressive race at Cheltenham. And then when he didn't win when he won and then wasn't really given much of a out very early in the The ladbrokes trophies Aleppo's. Yeah Yeah Yeah So. It'd be interesting to see him up and tripped a trip here. The one that really catches my eye though is yellow inky okay. Having moved just from Venetia to pull nichols I mean the wave. Venetia sources are running at the moment. You probably wouldn't mind him still being there but you know. I think it's very interesting. Move to pull with Brawny on boards How she's made for these inch she's all about getting a horse in a nice jumping rhythm? Yeah and You know she'll be chatting away to all the way out that long straight and yeah I mean you'd like to hear the conversation. Yes the dictaphone. During a race that would be great. Yeah and when I mentioned my faction voice support I believe it annoys was fair it was on the. Oh you've got a completely right and chat limit. I got it completely wrong that right from Robbie power as STU has stealing tone their hair and I think has been my idea the race for quite a while to be honest with you. I just hope the road at Newbury like it was elaborate trophy. I know it's one of the biggest races of the year but that for me was an exercise and getting a horse fish for the big day like the way briny road. Yeah Lanky Anki. It was fired into fences. And you know really. He had a proper proper owners. And I know you. People looked at a farm and then say that he finished twelfth of twenty eighty. Four speaking twenty eight But I tell you rat a lot better than I thought it was the perfect For the West Front where you need to be superfish and I think public use the race perfectly to be honest with ice Anki turned in the race last year off from micro one five four. Like he's only nine year old seems seems to be arraigned for young am Think Ya'll Anki. His Douglas Ronin. The way degraded is going to be the fact that he's had the perfect prep and to me. He takes a load of boxes. Sim I think he'd be buying. They're giving funds him. How many boxers now McGinty take and then begins? He takes plenty of boxes. Actually I oh I thought he was kind of interesting. I think I could narrow it down to four horses. That can win the race. Elegant escape as McGinty is to yell. Enki is obviously three three. And the other one that I talk wireless Puddles Bay as well. I wouldn't be surprised if that ran really well. So they'd be my my four against the field and no McGinty. He's he's quite solid. I I think like if you back each way you'll definitely get paid Dj. Nobody's must report to the football. Boys are trying to get into the students. which goes to the finale juvenile? I'm not quite quickly. Dj who wins another juvenile hurdle. Finale juvenile heard is that what timely is one chips on the table. Yeah no that's fine. I'm just clicking into here obviously favors. Yeah I would have no real strong opinion on the race. A I'd be taken on all mine calling because I know the farmers Franklin who one cents Bush Sam just the way he goes He's fairly hard on him South Fund. I'd have to see the final decks. Plus I'd be taken on all of mine. Would you be taking on all mankind. Probably would the only thing I'd say is Dan Scouts in just the other day and he he said the Halsey was most looking forward to over the entire festive period was all mankind and yesterday which I think is notable the one that catches. She's my I just that the price is at the moment is John McCain. Who is Navajo Pass just on format I think has anywhere near as much defined with the top? Two was as the prices suggest suggest both take on. I wouldn't take an old mine. I'd be locked down. Skelton be with all my son before. We're they've checked so stupid. You know I would like to. Hey I would like to hear Frank Hickeys views on the Welsh national nights ahead. Dj Okay. Let's get let's get Franks fees. Get the Welsh grand. National is one of the big races over Christmas on the one I really really like hair is potter's corner for Christa Williams. Now this horse actually had really because for harm going right back to the beginning of his career. He was second in appalling to kill crave Before winning his bumper for Paul market he then went to the gray to bumper daintree where he was actually charged batteries Hale and Bells Hill. That was a really strong pumper but what was incredible. was that Bouvard dare and brainpower. Some harsh. There would be hiding that day. No for old-timey tornadoes. Be An absolute stare could roll not wet in such a high-cost bumper shows. The ability has not thrown Harlan's races doing okay. We're winning a couple Decent enough novices etc.. But he's calling was really been over fences. He was very unlucky not to win the chase. Last year I thought he tipped up to who else when looking like he was gonNA play a major. He raised three pounds for that before the Midlands National That was run over. Four miles to farms on re-testing ground around and he actually outstayed Missouri. Who looked really handicapped at the time? There was fifty spectrum dot. They're unbelievable stamina now. That's a hard one for chats so because the like like today's it's going to be really testing ground over three three months and you only want real slogger to win this race record. Attests does north and the Koch is the. He's run therefore targets on one three times doing time he was beaten was over two months seven on grounds. He probably wants a fair but it had to be at his best and even he was beating so he'd beaten two and a half flanks employers who are harder to raise a couple of weeks go over three miles taught. It was just going to be a prep. He actually ended up winning despite fight. Not being fully ramped up as the mall season has been described national. And we're going to be extra places in the race. I think he's absolutely nailed on to hit the frame at least unless unless he gets a hampered or something like I literally stood thought from Frank on the Welsh national the Leopardstown card on Friday again. So many good good rices. DJ Shall We start on the the Wong ten on Friday which is the big the big two mile L. Chase again one of my festival. ante-post bets shocker. And Pour Soi and the champion chase. I'm going to be happy with that after this race. Oh yeah yeah yeah like just really watch your piece of workweeks. Leeann volumes are very very very very strong visitor Robbie power with Nidia his up on the road to Cheltenham. You know he's advising people to back. This report runs in this race and Lee. You have taken his advice at Sherlock. We're just hoping this heart superstar on everything points to him being seriously special so I just hope he wins. Obviously at the price is four to seven so he's going to be a baton proposition It's one of these ones. You just want to be way which I'm hoping where tempus one on Friday on this stage. Dj Seo likely champion chase or not you. A massive defeat is solely financially. Go to come back the same day. Yeah I I'm I'm daffy biggest fan I think daffy is just or lower attitude at low goes by but obviously checking purse while beat him fair and square approaches time. I say that post like Talk Daffy Big Day I was in the jail when heat loss transactions. So he could've just been a little bit over the top Right now if you're asking me a free jumping tastes. I put it on Daffyd assault. Both there is a big chance shack personnel. Could just be a second second coming. It's hard to say this stage isn't it. We've not really seen enough even to be getting his carried away as we I think he's one of those losses. It was an exceptional performance when he wiped the floor with Daffyd. Soy but I kind. NFL Daffy is too good a horse for that to be pure form to know what I mean. Like if you're that far you're an absolute monster unless is he is slightly below himself or lettuce an absolute monster unless he's an absolute once and that could be possible but I'd like to see a bit more evidence before before on anointing anointing him a guy Do you want to say anything about the future champions. Obviously it all departures do I. I don't know let's have a look. Yeah I mean there's some great holes in the future future champions novice hurdle is in the great honor roll as well as one of those races. That's just one of one of the exciting novice hurdles this time of the year. Yeah I mean Abracadabra says looks really good vibes from blue sorry of always been held in really high. Esteem ran great at the Cheltenham Festival. I wasn't that impressed on on a hurdling debut horses improve. Yeah it's one of those raises. Really exciting is also one of those races. You're looking down. There's an awful lot of modern sources in there is a question as to what's going to turn up Joseph's go a few DJ on Easter on. What's running the budget? Abracadabra blue Salary will ruin Alamgir Ron. I think envoy Alain Does Ron wait for the lawyers and as numbers and top new. Sarah you win get intrigue. Painful advocate addresses a four year olds. At let's think he'd stay two and a half miles approaching I think he's more speed horse. Looked away jumped onto me. I just think like he he was. He was a bit ahead of Africa. Diverse in the champion bumper any jumps quite loud and so I just think he's better Numbers on to me. He's the most likely when I wouldn't be surprised to see easy work on his odds. I know he's had quite klay regard so maybe easy work. Each way to price flew. Sorry okay making those two on. Dj Patty Pouch. How a chase huge field honeycutt? Jerry's has your name written all over. Who wins the race? Love Love the race to my to against the fee and the first of them is ex patriot. Life for Ed Murray Holding off America one hundred forty six just only expose over three miles around the triumph for two years. I think it was forward to deputy to sell you actually in the Shining Fargo and all you think ex Patriot is type horse. That code really improved for the step up contract and I don't think we've seen the bathroom over trae minds on the other. One is Manila affair for no lead. The Manila is very independent. Needs an absolute bugs to the more took statement that percents that more Manila Fares chance improves at demo against gets a failed. Both of them are twenty two one ex patriots. Manila Fair. I'll tell you what race is as you could have four or five against if you look like you're being greedy. Yeah absolutely the horse the no catch my eye is another. That would right the ground really heavy. But it's the MARLINS horse Schefters votes twenty five to one that that's where where I landed when looking at this? He's a whole slew of always lights. Really got some classy form yet when you go back. And he's just the Horse that I've always felt has had more potential than and he's quite sean yet. So hopefully you can tap into that okay. Let's hope he does Is it is patty power. Stay at Leopardstown on Friday. We should hear from putty pilot in the flow of Frank. Hickey the big race at Leopardstown on the twenty seven is the potty power chase and I'm GonNa take flora was a massive price. I Cop York for Nolan. Me's piece that this horse half-brother death work of dental work with high costs novice chaser. Nacion on what. He was disappointed. Only start this year. Co develop into goal called candidate before the ear is out In France copy was actually second in a hard to raise to see posh CPAs the horse that I had well in the Caspian Caviar Goldcorp. In the last two seasons seasons in the one forties he switched to knowing me he's had one run at Leopardstown toes and sixteen finished midfield. It feels but obviously picked up some sort of injury because he was off the track for two years before reappearing He won enough and on his reappearance before finishing fourth integrate. Great to at Limerick last Christmas. He doesn't meet his handicap debut in a pretends qualifier off America. One hundred thirty two and what. He benefited from the fall. All of two at the last he may want anyway And he was paid grade level at grade two level for the rest of the season finishing midfield and the bar before slightly slightly disappointing runs at fairyhouse and the punchestown festival now. He's been campaigned. Over whom on fall you've over fences today it's not would be a trip very much on the charts which to me suggests that they've been lonely him. Hope for a handy mark he gets in here off Amac one hundred thirty four on the step up to three definite favor. He is only two pounds higher than in his handicap harder to win. Enough remains only ronin handicaps. So I think it's fair to say he could be on a decent mark. I think he's a massive price at the moment. So He's what I throw a few quit on each way with the extra extra places we'd be offering on the day. One of the great ones Ronald Leopard sold over. Christmas is the party. Power Future Champions Novice hurdle and Arba KC Brad Blue Sorry would attract. Everyone's attention. I think one might get onto the radar here in Donna. which would be second-string JP honest and Willie mullins now? Interesting enough. Witty mones won this race for the last four years. We're only once was a with the first string that wasn't toes. The fifteen with long dog is sixteen. tournus one when second-string for mullins in seventeen whiskey sour one third string ring announcer armone one second-string assigned to Simona no extra Jonah Goldberg backgrounds before switching to Willie mullins he. He was second on. Its debut season behind visions on air was a fair enough effort at the time visions and air was being touted as potential Supreme Novices Hurdle Horse. We didn't see him again until this reappearance at as over two months three on backgrounds when he shows actually good determination but also turned out to be long long house pours readily comfortably. MM forbid they were clear if they no longer pose opposite dotted up in a maiden Harlot Navin Saints on the. He's potentially being told us a horse for the festival. So this licks Sudani looks to definitely slipped in under the radar hair potential beanie to price if we get the runners as well. Potty Power Games has over two hundred fifty if you'll favorites to play the online. How are we going to attempt to name them? All in this ten second ad before the TS and CS kick in. There's Black Jackson plus becoming aware. Who Welcome back to the final part? All this festive Monday postcards. And it's now time to wrap proceedings with some tips so David Jennings walls no giving us your your nap. I think you've already given his. You're not based on what you're saying about particular horse anymore. Horses the fancy over with those two days and festive period. Yeah just a horse. That low rollet solids I think in two thousand ten percent on the twenty six cedar. Wood Road Jaroslaw. Clint train's debut Ralston. Takes Strive for Chris Joe. That could be huge price. They just say rodents odds you know. It's it's a good race. It might be enough to win. But it'll be a big price. I think Rome well in the twelve forty demanding. Her I think in Toucas can win this for Joseph. O'Brien American watch and in the wooden forty five which is the handicap hurdle and. It does a couple in here. That are quite interesting. Kobe potentially well handicapped and the one that I taught could have a bit to offer off. It's mark was a father Alba for a Gaba problem went Jonathan more and one last time to mark one hundred nineteen but just to type A horse. That Gavin uncommon does really really well which fodder outlet so they. They betrayed that I would be given chances to ash set on the twenty six superstar. Jj Stu anything. Oh she wants to mention yeah outside of what we've already gone over earlier. Obviously there's a whole of MC Shannon's in the one twenty at Kempton on Boxing Day Hold the note Just impressed me last time. Think of come on for the run and Is that handicap one with Glenn close last year and Saint Connections actions. Yeah that's one I'll be. That's one I'll be okay. I'm sure I'll come. He was some point sometimes. Someone told me to back. Hold hold the note in a race at hunting and I think but not my beacon playing their own as an editor all out rod before his time Frank Aka will give us his his limerick on Friday on the twenty seventh and Limerick three. It's a two-month handicap this a little a bit of a sneaky one that I've been running off for Christmas gunman for a couple of years Prince's minor for John. Joe Walsh laster running this ferry race of America of ninety-six and look like he was gonna dot up forty tip off at the second last now. He saw him very far and saints onto last time when falling at the last when looking like he was going to finish second and he runs here off America. Ninety seven only a pound heart nostra when he was going to win. I wouldn't be surprised that this has been the same ever since tipping up last year. He Cou whether it be fair an off off price maybe seven or eight to one hopefully and he deftly looks like one that needs supporting so we thank frank liberate said. I'm we wish a Merry Christmas Smith and we wish now the boys naps is will off the FBI. Now the naps David Jennings writings all. You're going to deliver with the hose.

Caught Offside: Champions League Final PREVIEW

"Six. With this. Eric. Finding. It's. Swings. Goodness took. The goes. Ago reggae? It's incredible. Rakic quickly. Effect big reggae to leave. Out of the. Lucas? Lucasville. Good. Caught offside with agriculture and. JJ. Davani. Offsides from the Upper West side of Manhattan if gulling and change a fannies Champions League final three edition. What's up, brother Amana? My nervous excited all the feelings seriously today. Today. I watched so much Liverpool related content. I got a motion of I started thinking about my father back in and watching it feeling guilty, that I'm here, I started seeing movies on video is of people in Madrid fans already singing Madrid dot me absolutely hyped effect guilty thinking should be there. I started thinking about the way I felt straight after Kiev and thinking this might come round again, there may be no shot at redemption. No year later where back for the first time in the history of that story. Twelve taught them Hotspur Champions League European Cup final. And, you know, I think. That's, that's the thing that I've been trying to wrap my head around, because we're obviously coming at this from completely polar opposite perspectives. You know, the thing that, that I keep thinking about is the history of the moment that Tottenham in, it's a club that's been around since eighteen eighty two. Like you say they, they are storied club with a great history. But there now they've now reached a level that they haven't reached before and one that a lot of Spurs fans. Probably never really honestly, if you caught a Tottenham fan in an honest moment. There's a lot of Spurs fans that never would have thought this would be a thing that could happen. So like, as a Spurs fan right now, I think you, you're watching this, and you're like the realization is hitting you that you are now in history like this is these are moments, the Lucas more goals, the, the offside goal for him sterling against Manchester City, like every one of these moments that you are witnessing. These are the moments that you will. Tell your children about your grandchildren about whatever goal or whatever it is. That's about to happen on Saturday in the. Champions League final like when Tottenham scores if they score a goal in that game that will be that could become the next the new biggest goal in the history of the club like this is living history right now for this club and it's that's a Wild Thing to like be conscious of that, that you're witnessing right now a fair via for me to tell Spurs fans how to feel but you are playing with house money somewhat. This is an amazing place that Spurs fans when Alan Sugar owned club when Ozzy are dealers was manager. You mean the club was in relegation battles it had to draft in Germans in, in the form of your conclusions men in the mid nineties to keep the show on the road. It was often even when things got better under Harry Redknapp. They went very very. It was boom bust. They went very bad under Sherwood people like that. They had one day Ramos, Komen. This is a place that Spurs fans didn't think they'd be in. I doubt they thought they'd be here so quickly. I remember the feeling of when of when Redknapp not, not just got them into the Champions League. But when they when they qualified out of the group or, and when they beat AC Milan in the round of sixteen at it felt like that moment was, this was a pinnacle. Yeah. Yeah. They lost Real Madrid in the quarter-finals and no one really bad. And I was well, you know, this was an amazing run and get to see them now at this level. It's, it's, it's hard to hard to comprehend to go back to what I was saying. You didn't think it would come so quickly under Mercier Pocchettino. Let's be honest. He was to Southampton manager with a very fresh and very young CV that had a lot of space to be filled in and no in a short period of time. You are where you are and Spurs fans. Just drink it in it's, it's absolutely unbelievable. And I'm not being patronizing. No think that what I've seen four I was too small for eighty four of two years of it. I seen four European not, including not, including two thousand and one. On the U F A Cup final not, including, you know, the, the Europa league final twenty sixteen but I've seen all these finals Liverpool Spurs, don't get to eat at this table very regularly. It's amazing. Especially when you when you go back in your head to what people were saying after the summer when they didn't make any move. They were a punchline and they're in the Champions League final without having done that the owner. I'm the only loss from this season is the loss of cheese room. We'll never have that cheese ru. Which we did I love cheese. Oh man. This is going to be an unbelievable podcast. This is one of those podcasts where I can't even believe this is a thing that we get to do for a living lake. How fortunate we are to even be able to do this right now because of how much fun this is going to be we're going to break down this game like you wouldn't believe we've got really are five major questions coming into the Champions League final that will go into great detail. We've got our dream scenarios for how this could potentially play out in a perfect reality for us. Champions League special nail bag. We've got our predictions at the end. It should be a really really enjoyable podcast, and I have slipped in a five stars five years review, over nice, save save that, that'll come at the joy that people will all really like it. Okay. So stick with us for that, and, of course as we've been saying throughout the week, we want to remind you once again. Soccer fans unite Liverpool fans Tottenham fans, everyone unite at the Harry lemon on avenue B between second and third streets in Manhattan. We're gonna be there this Saturday. What's time you getting there? I mean, the games at three I was planning on trying to get there by like one. Yeah. I think so too. Yeah, we're going to secure seats. We're going to hang out come over, we'll have a drink with you and we're just gonna have a good old time. And when the whistle blows, you will need to shut up because it's going to get ten started seeing the tweets from people that say they wanna come. I saw you sent me the one from the Tottenham fans say they're going to be there. So what about this from snick tunes who's flying in from Madison, Wisconsin? God took come watch the game. Like he's flying in for Madison to watch with us or is he can already be in New York. That's what he said, on the Instagram. He's flying in from Madison, Wisconsin come watch the game. With you guys that straight away. Unbelievable straightaway. You turn into into my mother, when visitors are coming over my God. There's nothing ready. Oh my, my will I fill his expectations. He's literally, this guy is flying. The guts of a thousand miles to have a pint with two guys who got. Yeah. What are we going to do? I feel like we have to begin with tales of the podcast. I feel like I need to like, like he can stay over my house. Like, what, what can you do is the guy from Ecuador Coleman? Are you serious? He's intone. So he's going to be there. So he's in town, though. I think he's in ok-. There's two guys mistrial who've contacted me independently to say they're sorry. They can't make it. That's, that's okay, go. It's going to be so fun. I can't wait for every aspect of this and then the game happens, like honestly, honestly there. Kobe gore Vidal Ronald Reagan, and Marilyn Monroe could walk in. And I wouldn't I mean. I would, I would not care because that'd be watching the actually me and gore would have an intellectual, you know matching so probably kick it on that level. Let's do this man. All right. Let's just get right into it now, like I said, five questions, five big questions for this Champions League that we want to start with, and I really the one that's on the forefront of the minds of Tottenham fans. Liverpool fans. It's about the two injured players coming in. What would you do with Harry Kane and Roberto for me? No. Let me deal with for me. No. Because I think it's fairly straightforward. The picture is a little bit clearer at for me was absolutely replaceable for Liverpool links, that hold from three together not to mention the work, he does offensively an intern of pressurising, the opposition fees, faith, and we believe according to your Klopp that he is he starts. Yeah. Here's what you're gonna had to say about for me, though, status. Be trained was potty training last week. Look, really good everything. Fine. Then we took him out again and we'll be in training thing from tomorrow on again. So all what we saw so far looked really good. And, and he will be will be fine. I'm pretty sure seems like it's open and shut case. Yeah. I think he will play. I don't think there's the same jeopardy over him that there appears to be with higher, Ken. Yeah, let's talk about that I want to start with this remember, the, the narrative that I immediately shot down as lunacy that Tottenham work better off without Harry Kane, just like the height of stupidity of prisoner of the moment syndrome this season. In all competitions Tottenham work, twenty four twelve losses. Three draws with Kane without him nine wins seven losses too. Draws they average over a goal per game with him in the lineup and just zero point seven goals per game without him. They are still a very good team. When he's not there, but they are not the same. That is clear day. So I mean, that doesn't really do anything for me. That's that's very dry Andrew Wong. I'm laying out there, the foundation of just how important he is Jimmy. You're, so here's the thing, there's been this. There's been this talk that I've heard on Tottenham Twitter that is really simplifying it. Oh, well, if he's healthy place. And according to Kane he saying he's healthy here straight from hurricanes mouth about his status. Feel good ready started trying to tame sweet. No. Great. So, yeah, I guess that's down to the major kind of a sesame over this next week. And she is I'm not a play or from when I feel pit, so I just wanna make sure I'm ready for anything started training with the team last week. All right. Here's what Pasha Tino said he said I can't say he's one hundred percent whether he will be available on the bench or out, but we're so happy and positive about his progression. This is not as simple as if he's healthy. He plays. It's just not. I know he's, he's that great and he's that important of the team, and he's a top three striker in the world, you know, that's all clear and obvious to me, but there are other factors at play here. Here's what I do if I'm Tottenham don't start him and kills me to say that, but I don't. And you know reasons for one. I just they can't afford at the cost of situation from the. Athletico Madrid Real Madrid when he came off in the ninth minute they just like when you're the underdog going into a game like this. The ships have to fall properly for you. They can't afford that. Now I've seen him at training. There's been videos. He's cutting on that ankle. He stopping on a time. He looks great. But you just if the ankles week I don't you don't you just don't know. So I wouldn't start him but. He'd make an appearance for me. Certainly probably look it all depends on how the game is going on with the score is. But the thing that's important about him is, you know, it's hard to it's hard to plan around this specifically but penalties could matter in a Cup final. He's very good at them. So if he starts the game then he's not playing ninety minutes certainly not gonna play one twenty because he's just not at that level of fitness, he'd probably come off. I don't know depending on how it's going seventy minutes, eighty minutes, something like that. If this game is close and penalties are looming. I want him out there. So I'd rather bring him on in the sixty fifth, you know, and let him go the rest of the way and at least allow him to be an option should get to that point. But. I think I would just rather him be out on the pitch for the end of the game rather than the beginning. And that's me just going off the assumption that he's not giving you ninety matter what and you have an extended bench in this Champions League final. You have twelve substitutes instead of I think seven so you can name twelve you can name them in your party on undecided. What you want to do then you also have the option and look it's it's European Cup finals. So there's every chance that goes to extra time you can make that Ford substitution and extra time so you can really assess as you go along. If you wanna use an I'm not starting him because I think spars can function up front without him. I think without him the attack is like he's a fantastic player. But the attack does take on a different dimension. I'm not saying better dimension. But I think that, you know, would Lucas Mora with Delhi alley. Which human San there are kind of a different option for Spurs that can cause problems for Liverpool as well. He's you get different things from those three. You'd love to have him fit. But it just seems too tight through ties played since April knife, I made there like a fitness concern is a real thing. I just I don't know. I just can't be on board with Tottenham contingent. That say if he's healthy. He plays. It's it's just in a Cup final. Yeah. Okay. If this is born with late in the season. I'm okay with experimenting, but the stakes are a little too high to just like be so black and white about it. Here was Steve Nicol on ESPN NFC on the Cain dilemma up until now I've been seeing if I Keynes no engine you just plan from the start plan from the star. And if he blows gasket after fairly minutes, forty minutes wherever as you take them off. But listening to him, they're not if he's only just joined the rest of the players on the field. He's going to be so far away. So no. My thinking is well, you know what? Maybe just keep this guy for desperation for the last fifteen twenty minutes if you need. That's what is about to say. If you're two one two nil down he's a better. Option coming off the bench thought dot for me will be the way to go. Yeah. You've got to think about starting Ken, how that changes the rest of your team. You know. Impacts it back the field. Let's while we're kind of on that subject. Let's talk about what our eleven's would look like because there's another player while we're talking about injury concerns. I'll go first with Tottenham. There's another player that isn't getting quite as much publicity understandably. So Kane is who he is. But a player who could be of, of relative equal importance for Tottenham in a game like this. And that's Harry winks, who also has not played for Spurs, since April ninth and who also seems to be at a level where you think he might be able to give further along than Cain in his rehab. So the reason he so important to me is because like he is the guy for Tottenham who I look at and say, okay, he can kinda be a stabilizing force in the midfield. He can be a possession guy. You know, he can win the ball back and kind of, you know act as a defensive holding midfielder, because if he's playing for me with Tom, I have to kind of midfielders in more of a central defensive role. Because I'm so afraid of Liverpool's attack. I feel you need to guys there to maybe protect your back line. I would have I'm gonna I'll give it a go with winks. I'll start out with him. And I have Mussa soco next to him. And I feel like that's why you need wings because the soco is not really that guy. He's not a defensive midfielder. He's a guy who's going to attack and so named name your team because I'm interested here this. Well, keep her obviously, Hugo Louise went with four in the back I kind of danced around a little bit with three, we'll get you have to play that little because when Tottenham in Liverpool played in March it was a massacre against the back three they have to go with four. And so if you're going with four, it's an obvious choice. It's everyone's healthy because it looks like for tongue is one hundred percent. So rose out of rail for tongue in trippy in the midfield, I went with soco and wings from kind of that base. And in front of them, I go with Ericsson on the right deli in the number ten role and son out on the left with Lucas Mora upfront and attack the deli Lucas. Connection. I mean, if you watch the second half against I actually saw just like are clicking. So I'm comfortable with that. And then at the first, sign of trouble in the second half round the fifty fifth, sixty sixty fifth Kane and by the way, like just thinking about the boost if it's one one or something like that, like, the, the lift that it could give Tottenham just to see him like take off the warm ups, and like the buzz that will go through the, the crowd for that moment. I it could be big. I would also note that you pick your starting eleven but be aware that pot and Klopp putting in particular has been able to make in game changes and turn games. So, you know, he has that ability to make up sitution make a change make a formation chance. Here's my starting eleven. Allison goal, obviously Alexander Arnold Matic. Van Dyke in Robertson. Philbin, ya'll Henderson to his ri- when out into the left Saleh for me. No money, I think with you guys. It's, it's a lot more clear cut. This is kind of been at least as of late for beano, maybe being the one that's a little bit different. But like this is kind of what, what you've won with recently with everybody fish. This is how I think the team would Leno. We don't have the, the missing players that we did for the second Barcelona that required. That rejig are the first leg against Barcelona where you saw went out of occupied that's base for, for me. No would usually be so this team, I gopher on interns that midfield. It's very clear. It's what I talked about before it's, it's not heavy metal football. It's trash metal death metal and you get that intensity, not midfield. And I would. That's where I would actually we'll get to it. But that's where I worry for Spurs. You ready for the second question here JJ? Yeah. All right. Who has been each club's unsung hero in route to the final. Well you go. All right. There's so many own song, heroes who became song, heroes versus Barcelona in the semifinal, second leg because of the key players Liverpool were missing. Soul O'Regan comes in. Does what he does scores the goal to goal Shaquir. He sets a goal for when album when album himself played in an unfamiliar role in the first leg was dropped came on Robertson, did oh Henderson who didn't start and Barcelona put in a monstrous effort in the secretary Joel matchup for his role stifling, the bar satanic. There's a there's a flag gone to Madrid of with a picture of Joel not on it. And it says keys wallet. Phone messy. Things that are in your pocket to check for. But I'm going with somebody for whom it such an impact way back in the group stages. It's one nil Liverpool have to beat Napoli at Anfield in the final group game, the only taken five points from six matches the ball goes into the box it falls to arches Milic on the Brazilian does this. These. Circumstance as good assigned as you'll see. That's why you pay the big money for people to pull at stumps on this just what it not to. No. There was the number of -able say it's an unbelievable. But there was a crucial save then against Bayern Munich at home in that Neal knew where it just comes flying off from deflects off. Joel Matic comes flying at him. And he's in the right place at the right time. Don't forget to saves he made from Jordi Alba and messy in the incredible comeback game. Because one goal kills you. It's done. It's over. So although it's never over and I'm through. But you know what I mean? So Addison quietly for a really expensive. Cool. Keeper has been very good. You and I are kind of on the same wavelength here. Oh, yeah. Because my unsung heroes, Hugo lorries interest, goalkeeper this mainly because this was the season where the narrative on him turned for the worse, and the great irony of it, is that, that turning point that tipping point happened against Liverpool in the two one with the out of old own goal in the ninetieth minute. But in the Champions League, he's been spectacular and Tottenham are simply not in this game if it's not for him. Let's go back Manchester City, first leg the penalty called against any rose on the controversial Hamble. Here's Hugo Reese. Clear. Preventing city from getting that away goal was everything. I mean you can't even express how precious that was now seeing where Tottenham of gotten to what about is safe from Donnie vanderbeek, second leg against. One hundred percent. And by the way, go back. See, you look at it now, I went back and I was kinda rewatching all the highlights from Tottenham road to this point, and you see the final score with Dortmund over the two legs, four nil. Go back and watch the highlights Hugo Reese was in the first half of the first leg he was he was immense. He was incredibly as one of their men of the match and then Tottenham scored three goals in the second half to make it look like it was this blow out and give them the cushion that they had for the second leg where they added one more, but without him you just don't know. And yet irony of ironies weakest performance of the last month or two months of Premier League football came in that match game that came at the end of March against art actually win in March. Was that early Liverpool March thirty first? Yeah. Well, the thing for him is out. Expect him of all people to be able to cope with the pressure this moment because remember he was a net for France for the World Cup final. He was a net for France. In the extra time defeat against Portugal in the European championship final. So hopefully, he someone who's kind of immune to the, the pressure of the moment. Let's see next one JJ. What or who will be your x factor? Jordan Henderson here, I am naming the most successful signing of the Daniel Kamal era. Not charity, Adam, or Stewart toning or indeed aunty. Carol a player, I have wrongly criticized on this podcast. And here I am naming him as my ex factor twelve months ago, I was in a bar in Kiev in the early hours of the morning drowning. My sorrows on already video had surfaced of basically clips of Jordan Henderson's passing cut up with the heading. This is why he's not good enough. If Liverpool are to go to the next level, like one of those Josse artists, I touch videos. Yeah. Exactly fast forward to Anfield against Chelsea April fourteenth and Henderson is still in midfield. Albeit in an advanced position to the right of his old birth on creating for C for saudi-omani as opener, if Henderson can bring the same aggression and drive to that position in this final that he did against Barcelona turn the ball over create harass. Ass press. Heart intimidates birth backward, set the tone for a long long night for the Londoners Thursday video in all my content watching today, which was just such a joy this video that finest taken on fulltime were Henderson is on the ground. On the side Ling spent, there's nothing left and Joe Gomez comes over and lifts him up. And he does his interviews. Does whatever unease just pumping his fists and he's phone? This little Nisha Andrew. It's an inside right position. He's not a winger but he can make runs in between. He can find himself between the lines. He can also just bully other bully, the fullbacks pulley centrebacks of Spurs bully, the Santer midfielders do what he did, if he can unleash the dogs of war like he did against Barcelona. He could be up -solutely crucial. And he's been released from that holding position where he's had to set temple and do all the things that we really didn't think he could do like Ken early said earlier in the year and I quoted it because I thought it was great when he receives the ball on the half, pivot. Look into pass it and set temple he looks like a man who's utterly paranoid about what's about to happen. He was just stifled there and even Klopp said it clubs at him. Sorry played him there for nearly two years. This is something that was stumbled across a upon a little bit. And something that has kind of I think become a strength for Liverpool. No, he's released some hot and I think he could be the x factor. Can't leave from saying, but it makes total sense does make sense. Let's see mine is simple here. I don't really have a ton on it for me. It's Tottenham central defence, there's no way around it. Like I don't care how well of shell whoever's playing Tottenham midfield, you know, they're going to do the best. They can to limit Liverpool's opportunities on the counter to try to win back possession. Both teams may press high. It'll be interesting to see how that plays out. But ultimately, Liverpool's front three their attack is terrifying, and they're going to get opportunities and they're going to break through and it's just it's inevitability and you just if you're a Spurs fan, you just hope that these two guys who've been playing side by side for both club and country for years now they have to hold up. They have to positionally be right. You know, Robertson and Trent Alexander. Mulde are gonna be firing balls into the box to the best crossers in, in England. And in all of Europe. You know, for Tongan out of realm, it's got to be like that Gucci on. Woo verse Spain Confederations Cup for four a one header out of the box repel header header out of the box out of the box. After another. That's what it's gotta be. I mean that's what I remember watching that day. It was just like he was the spin, couldn't get anything through everything was headed away. That's got to be these two guys set pieces, Liverpool or so dangerous on set pieces. They've got to be right. Can't have any unforced errors silly back passes Tottenham play out of the back. Have to be careful with it to me. It's like I feel good about them. I don't mean to imply that. I'm nervous. I love the two of them back there. They're two of my favorite players on this team. But Liverpool are incredibly frightening in attack, and these two guys are gonna be on their heels for the full ninety or wherever long game goes of all the grid defenders in the world. You had to pick from all the great performances you went to Gucci on all time favorite player. Good Lord love him. All right. JJ which manager fourth question here, do you think needs this more? I didn't like this question. I don't like the narrative that this brings us into. This brings us into the weaponized area of football Twitter where pep Guardiola is a bald fraud Klopp Hasim won't X amount of finals, and it's owner failure, and pot is a bottler. I just don't enjoy this kind of thing. Like I said, I think tina's done brilliantly to get this team to championship final for a number of reasons. That I'm sure I've tired, the listeners out with, with me reading it off Klopp as well. You can say, low Klopp has certainly had the money in the last few seasons to meet the needs of this team and to get things done that he's wanted, but he's also coach. He's made players better. We'll you we've seen that on so. Yeah, you can look it back in and talk about the Champions League final letty loss against bar, Munich and talk about playing against Savita losing that final where he admitted he got things wrong. You can talk about the the League Cup final last season. When we lost a Manchester City all those things they're all there. Sure. And you can say. Liverpool have spent X they need to be doing this. It's Liverpool football club the pressures on them their favorites. That's fine. But the idea that one of these managers needs this or else, some part of what they've built is not really isn't worthy. I'm just not buying it. Fair enough. I mean, the answer to the question is Klopp, whether you like the question or not that is the ants. Okay. This is from Ryan Bailey at Yahoo sports. He writes this, he says on paper, there's no way that Liverpool should lose the two thousand nineteen Champions League final. They have a better European pedigree than Tottenham the superior squad a better head to head record. And his team has a huge point to prove after losing all three finals, they've entered under Klopp. If a team earns ninety seven points in the Premier League and reaches a Champions League final, but somehow fails to win any silverware questions must surely be asked their coach now that last part strong questions. Most surely be asked. Here's the thing, I obviously, obviously. His job is in jeopardy here. And, you know, with the exception of like a couple like Liverpool aren't trading your Klopp for pr- probably any other manager on earth. He has built something there, he is beloved there and it almost feels like he's got a job for life. But the one missing piece for a while now with him. He won the German Cup in two thousand twelve and he's lost six straight final since then, so you know, there's a like is too strong to say he's got this monkey on his back that could start to become willing. We Carrillo at the monkey though. We the media make the monkey on. I'm sure of course he wants to win. There's no manager out there that doesn't want to win, but he has talked open emphasize the journey, what this team is creating he did say, at the start in his very first press conference, if by the end of X amount years, we haven't won the league or or won the European Cup. You know, I'd be very disappointed. Probably be surprised those things are all true, but it's more of a want. It's more of a certain amongst liberal finds its expectation. Liberal in any European complain? Well, that's the thing. Ultimately look like I said, the quest you're right. The question is a little bit unfair because when you're talking about Patino and clock. You're talking about two of the best managers in the world. That most other clubs on this planet would kill to have it's really just club by default because with Paci TI. No, you can't really say that it's him because okay? The narrative on Pasha Tino for the past few years is great manager. He's gotten Tottenham to a level that they didn't think they consistently be at but can't win the big game. Well, look everybody's idea of what is the big game. I guess that's that's subjective. But ultimately, he beat Manchester City in a quarter final of the Champions League any beat I accident semi final. And he's gotten Tottenham who didn't make any signings in the summer two Champions League funnel. So I think regardless of what happens in this game. He's kind of destroyed. The narrative the Tottenham can't win the big game under pocketing my expectation is that Liverpool would win this Champions League final. I will not be walking away thinking it reflects anything on mercy pate. No. Agree. Completely agree, by the way, you are not alone in that expectation the s p I, I saw today is seventy two to twenty eight in Liverpool's favour. That's big. That's a big number. It is big. Number one that I know you take very seriously, you know. What was the Espy that we was torn apart that we were like we're never trusting this again? Probably the Liverpool Barcelona SPA. Yeah. What was Liverpool's chances when that starts seven percent, something like that? Yeah. All right. JJ one more question here, fifth, and final one in what area of the field will this game be one. Course I've gone for two because I cannot stick to the rules. That's fair. We saw midfield is wearing to begin. We saw them Barcelona game. The ability of Liverpool to overpower suffocate a team with their present. Tackling Henderson for being yo album. We expect canton survived that early onslaught the times that Liverpool of blown Spurs away. And by the way, they are increasingly less over the last few games, there's only being a goal or so in, but the times it has happened is when Liverpool of got off to a fast start. Who will be in that Tottenham midfield suco, plus winks? Whatever fitness is he at sharpness all those things come into it. And that's where I think, Liverpool hold an advantage key to the meeting at the end of marriage was out, white with auxiliary wingers, which are basically fullbacks now as liberal, destroyed, Spurs, in the first half to Robertson, Trent Alexander Arnold Spurs play the back three and the key to them turning that around in game was basically Martinez. Cellphone plan. That's right. You're right. Called it in. They went to a four and any rose pushed up the feed, which gave Trent Alexander Arnold something else going the other way. I think participant four at the back tried to restrict restrict out exander Arnot Robertson, limit the space down the flanks without what that may end up looking like is not one or two year attackers at any given moment is going to have to slot in slot, white and try and create maybe a five in midfield for Spurs are basically suffocate those angles for Liverpool. They have to try and stop the Liverpool play through the liberal press where it's possible notch or how they do that Sukhal. This is the biggest game he's ever played in bar the well European championship. Final. Yeah, I. A kind of agree with, with what you have here. My mind goes straight to one position, but a position that occupies two areas of the field. I am looking at these Liverpool fullbacks for all the great players that you do have Monay Sala for me. No Van Dyke. I don't think there's any two individuals that scared me more than Robertson and Alexander Arnold in the PL, and Champions League this season. Those two competitions combine Trent had fifteen assists Robertson had thirteen assists. Let's look at the two meetings specifically between Tottenham and Liverpool. This year September fifteenth Liverpool one that wants to want should have six one note, nor it's important well or six two sons should have been awarded a penalty in extra-time that tie game. But nevertheless, let's see fifty four th minute for me. No goal puts Liverpool up to nil. How did that come about Andy Robertson lofted in a beautiful ball behind the defense Tamahu who then played it right? Into for me knows path very. Well done March thirty first. Very well done Liverpool to one again. Sixteenth minute. Andy Robertson bombing forward takes the past plays in an incredible ball for me. No for the goal ninetieth minute. The own goal. We all remember it. But how did it happen? Because we all remember Sala heading back across goal in the re smacking it off out of who knocked it in. But how did that ball? Get to Sala Alexander. Arnold played in a beauty to set the whole thing up. Yep. Liverpool killed everyone with their fullbacks perhaps, no one more so than Spurs all progression from Trenton exander Arnold is key getting the ball into the areas that it needs to be in. No. How do Spurs? Do I don't. Sacrifice. Do you sacrifice you go for the back and you do kinda ran in your full box? Well, here's how this isn't my idea. I'm not evolved enough mentally with the American brain to know how to stop these two. So I will lean on a former Liverpool player to offer his advice reading now from the BBC a piece that Stephen Warnock wrote. Former Liverpool defender. He says the way for Spurs to hamper Robertson, and Alexander Ronald and hurt Liverpool is to leave fast players up the pitch high and wide, like Sun, Hung men or Lucas moral. That means if the reds fullbacks do push on, it's more of a gamble because they know it is left to their centrebacks Virgil Van Dyke Joel Matt tip to deal with those players. Let's not forget also Spurs potency on the break, which was evidenced in the March meeting at the end of March. Look at the chances that they created on breakaways soco in the eighty first one on one with the keeper. I mean, that was just a brilliant piece of, of chef shepherding. Shows the right option shepherd at him because if that goes to sewn Andreu, it's good night delights. It's to one. It's, it's so weird for me to sit here and try and get into the mind of Murchio pate. No, I'm wondering I'm wondering if to begin with he is ever so slightly negative, if he's ever so slightly easing baby ease into the game, make sure were tight fourth the back five in midfield kind of job or Tottenham conceded. A lot of early goals like that, and something to worry about this. It can't happen this time because there's no second leg and Liverpool high dot ability to blow teams out of the water just a final exclamation point on these two fullbacks for Liverpool and just how special they are in league matches the season in the Premier League. No one created more chances for Liverpool than Mohammed Sala after him, though. The second most chances were created by Robertson, the third most by Alexander Arnold. Those guys created more chances than for me. No or saudi-omani incredible. It's amazing how good they are because. On. It's amazing. How many different players have stepped forward because if this was last season, you're almost entirely talking about that front three Utah. We have barely mentioned saudi-omani Bertie mentioned, Muhammad Saleh, because it actually doesn't bear. Mentioning we we know what they can do. Henderson? The two fullbacks even look look at the, the center half in his ability to play pass over the the oh my God. All right. Let's digest all that. Okay. Let's take a breather. We'll take a very quick break. All right. They can good thoughts enjoying it loving it digging it. We're gonna take a quick break. When we come back, we have our dream scenarios for how this could play out reach of us. We've got a big Champions League mailbag. We've got our predictions. We've got a five stars for five years review. And I have a soundbite that I wanna play from you. Like, I, I know we did red cards on the ester days podcast card. But can I can I have like my dolt of the week? Who is it? You're not going to like it. But it's me. No, no, no, no, no, no, no. But I mean it it's Liverpool related okay? Somebody said something and it just like anger is just like for some reason, struck a nerve with me annoying and smug. So I've got that free as well. Don't go anywhere. Back now on caught offside fidgets funny. So we just did all that analysis, which I must say it was very well done, and very insightful very intelligent. But largely nonsense matters, not a not a wish because say, for example, the center half falls over clutching your center for retirement and his shoulders damaged and asked to leave the field. What if you're goalkeeper who hit thirty seven two out of so many concussion points in a concussion test later on. Throws the ball into the net twice the leave. It was the great Mike Tyson. That once said, everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth. It's true. Anything can happen, you know. And what's especially dangerous for what I did? There was talked about a Spurs team. I think will be picked, nobody's Scooby doo yet. What? Right. Chino's gonna pick. Yeah. So, but that's the fun of this. That's why we're here. Oh, yeah. About it. Sure. All this fun. We need Ben. We need to vent, this excitement somewhere, by the way, do you know who else is excited who got a listener, who's flying from Brazzale ten Georgia? I'd first time NYC to watch the game. What you guys love the pod keep it up Lord. Then we have another much more snarky man who got into me and said that I made him are told him he had to buy me beers when he that's not the case. We'll look like it is worth saying this, it's going to be so fun hanging out with everybody. But that's really what this is like, I know, sometimes ESPN does. Live shows and things like that they're not doing now. This is just like a hang out like we're just going to watch the game and, and have fun. And just like this, I called ESPN, I said, can we organize watch party if they said, excuse me, who are you? Did you get this number? Yeah. All right. So we're talking about how everybody has a plan to get punched in the mouth. So you and I you had this idea yesterday when we were leaving here, when you you're like, we should really just lay out, like in a dream of how things could go for each of us of what that scenario would. Yeah. Incompetent dream scenario yet. Do you, do you wanna go? I, I I'm Jay dreamland. It's one one at halftime Liverpool's early. Onslow brought a gold through Saudi Omani. Spurs equalised on half-time through Lucas Maura after taking advantage of a breakaway the put a merge of fire and brimstone and take the lead through verge of Van Dyke header on the hour. Spurs exchanges. Cain sprung from the bench like gazelle and the defame there eighteen for the middle section of the second half. Then in the eighty second minute dispossessing laboring in tired, Christian Erickson, Sheridan, should cheery, racist, clear, and has open field ahead of him Roberta for me. No escapes out of our album races onto an outside of the foot pass from chicanery. The Brazilian deftly lifted over the advancing lorries. It's always see and of dream sequence. Let's see, I went a little bit of a different route here is we now. Scenario. Here we go JJ ready for my dream land. We win five new. Second minute came goal eight-minute Cain goal, fifteen minute, vandyke own-goal, thirty third minutes son goal. Forty four minutes. The soco goal fifty first minutes, the soco goal, sixty minute Cain hat trick. Seventy minutes saw own-goal eightieth minute Lucas more goal. Eight minutes, you'll Matt does get one back on a corner. Well, taken in the nj what we're left with we're left with nine one. You didn't even engage with a little bit of Dr I'd had the Manchester City like to if it's now twice in this tournament really three times if you wanna go back to the group stage when Tottenham had one point from three games and neater resulted, Barcelona and needed to match Inter Milan's result against PSV at home in Milan. So three times in this turnament Tottenham pretty much thought that their Champions League campaign was over. So I'm good with drama. Like I've, I've had enough drama in this turnament. Honestly, the last several more Champions League campaigns. I'm ready for just an absolute massacre. You take out never mind massacre, somehow and I don't think it'll happen, but you take just a boring to new goals, either side of the half. Well, there's really nothing can no longer at a point now where it can no longer really be boring. Like, no matter what it is that happens. It will be excited up, you're, you're right. So, but it is engaged with. The idea Kareem world. I want no part of it. Look, I gifted you the Matt tip goal on a corner. Okay. Just take that and be happy. We've got such a great Champions League mailbag here. I'm excited about it. First question, Ian LeVine, who will have the bigger impact on their team in leading up to the game enjoying the game? Klopp are potch. It's a little, it's a little bit hard to answer that because I mean, both managers are good at adjusting potch. We've seen it with Klopp. I dunno. I I'll cop out. I can't really speak for like the lead up. All I know is reading something about Hugo Reese, and his like true love for Pocchettino where it says, in the article that he even has his, I guess the French players were given replica World Cup trophies to kind of be theirs. And he has his imposture Tinos office for Tottenham. Like there's a there's a true love there. So I know that these players will do anything for him. I think they've proven that. I mean, that's that that means everything going to game like this, you know what else is in punch Tinos office, a bowl of lemons, which he changes rotates regularly, the lemons, he believes ward off negative energy. They absorb. Orb like a sponge negative energy. And then when they go off, he throws them, out and replenishes them. And he says, sometimes when the chairman comes in Daniel Levy a lot of negative energy comes into he was joking when he said it, and it goes into the lemons, he did this weird interview with talksport and the best part of the interview, the most Sipho part was lemons, I'm gonna say Klopp because Klopp is. Supreme motivate or to go back to back champions leaks, particularly after the heartbreaking last season to have the team loose enough to be able to create what they did that masterpiece in the second egg against Barcelona. I think they're obviously both highly influential managers, but I shared it for Klopp. It's, it's a very tough question. They've at three weeks on both of them have said the ideal, obviously Spurs needed the three weeks for injuries in Liverpool, Liverpool extent. I think the ideal amount is you play a week after your last game of the regular season. This has been a long, wait, the so, so there's that aspect too, by the way, real quick, the, the clip that I played there from the nine one it was that was that audio was when Tottenham beat Wigan nine one do remember who scored the ninth goal. Probably not. I could just tell, you know, Niko Kranjcar. I mean, it's a Redknapp team what he well, you know, crouch while, you know, him and awry, Sydney, cried shell. Well, you now or Luca should show, Luke you now. The Louis Korea. What's your prediction on how agonizing along the pre-game cermony is going to be oh my God? I mean, this is that's that is the one fun part of like not the ones when we a lot of fun parts of, of going out to watch the game together. But, like we can ignore that until exactly like when you're at home. Yeah. At home. Sometimes you're able to really like better lock it on the game itself. But you gotta sit through just as he says, the agonizing build up when you're out will be talked. We're gonna be talking to everybody about the game and just about the, the seasons and like everything a little different. I pretty much skipped almost all of Duleep last season. She played the opening ceremony and I was outside with the Ukrainian riot. Police checking out their gear had some unbelievable gear. The dogs were just own just incredible yet. So I went into little bit later. I did catch a bit of Duleep oh, but it's going to be the imagine dragons. This. These guys are again. In. We stopped touring ages. Go we work for you. Wait but shows. From the Super Bowl to the. There. VH1.. Inside the music behind the music is going to be so lame. How do you know you don't know what they've been through? How dare you? They had one hit and then decided to cash, it all in all I'll say this about them, and look, they're not, my, they're Hartley, my favorite band. But. Meaning which even the biggest hater of them would have to at least concede that they're not. They don't have one hit. They do crank out like top forty hits free. Most Samsung with a few tweaks very well be true. Whatever a Deedles, some might say. All going to be. It's all just it's, it's the kind of music a thief executive would design for a World Cup bounce them. Emmanuel one hit wonder. That's wrong. Emmanuel Lugo, I'm Liverpool supporter. I am so nervous. We'll take that as a comment. I agree to. There's a there's a nervousness now that is beginning to, to, to take over at Brendan and that was it yet. I was at a comment, I said common question. Oh, no. Absolutely. Brendan breezy honesty burned. When I read this, I was gonna drive to your house and give you good slapping focus on the Noman. But I'll read it, Andrew. I would love to know how you stand on a couple of things because I've listened to the pod for one though and have been wondering if Spurs win the Champions League. I'm Spurs fan to just potch relieve and Keene. Stay. It's the eve of the Champions League mine. I'm right to be not today. I, I went to what was the website, I went to was BBC or ESPN. Fs. I dunno one of the soccer websites that I go to all the time had a story up about what will happen with potch and I was just like not yet guys. I mean the desire for content is always going to turn out these stories. But at, hey pew, as we haven't seen either manager utilize these before how could the expanded bench and fourth sob- an extra time affect their substitution tactics. Well, that largely depends on how the game goals bought it is something to consider huge, especially when, like I said, with Kane injury, you can know dictate little bit more again depending if the games heading towards extra time, maybe you wanna save him for that will the thing is, what would really what you could do with him. If you if you really felt compelled it could allow you, if you don't start him to bring him on a little bit earlier. And then if he needed to, like be subbed off in. An extra time if you just couldn't go the full length of the that now becomes an option whereas before, really wouldn't. Yeah. And I don't know. I it remains to be seen, but it is an interesting thing, that's going to be cropping up for this. Wave Champions League final his Sonate ass-. I'm Spurs fan on, it's my birthday on Saturday. Will I not worry about coming in to work? I work retail at Dodger Stadium. So it's not an important job for me. If I get in trouble bueller that he sent his knowing that it might be read out on the show. Yeah. Better hope. They're like nobody else for the dodgers listens. All I'm sure the dodgers organism though was just never know refreshing their feet. Look, jobs, important. Can you not talk to your boss and say, look, it's my birthday my teams in the Champions League. Final. Chemical men, a little bit late or not at all and take extra shifts next week or whenever the dodgers play again, or whenever you work. It's probably a ten ten start champions leagues at three. So the game will be well over. He's gonna wanna. A party in between. I say, well, I don't. What have somebody fill informed that I'm sure he's probably considered that it's not an easy thing to do on short notice Smith. I just wanted to take a moment ahead of the Champions League final to thank you. Two gentlemen is the recipient of a team via help fund at the beginning of the season. I follow the sport off and on and mainly had interest around the US men's and women's national teams on the World Cup since I was given a new team I dived headfirst into their history and found him, perhaps it's just a magnificent season that the boys had, but I don't think I have ever seen myself fist pumping the air at one PM at work as I was witnessing one of the greatest all time comebacks and I was so emotionally invested. Never would have thought that when I hear a song, I get goosebumps. Nonetheless knowing the words starting on start echoing them back at my TV. So again, thank you. For giving me a home that Smith. Who's a Liverpool fan? Let's go to the Graham, who will be the most smug, if they win so many people have asked this. So he just completed into one question. I naturally smoke. Yeah. Yeah. And I have some of that in me as well. I will channel my inner Jamie Caraher with this. But I little when the older Pinkel. Bid if you say those words to me, I it will be hard for me to not smack your face, which words like if you just get in my face and scream like in that voice Liverpool of won the European Cup. Ha ha like it's only earth. It will that will just like we just heard again. But I think the older Pinkel. Bitch is the genius darn fairly for my smugness. I channel, there's a south park episode, that is literally based around the smugness of, like people like me. Well, people who specifically people who own hybrid vehicles. Now, I'm not necessarily commenting on whether or not what I think of that. But the episode just nails smugness as thing I think I wanna go more this, and what you, you can't see it. But what you'll hear is these people are so impressed with themselves that they love the smells of their own farts, and that is the route that I'm gonna take everyone here drives a hybrid. Of course, we're a little more progressive, and head of the curve here in San Francisco. Anyway. I'm sure you'll find it much better here. Yes. You'll find that San Francisco's pretty much more open minded grownup than the midwest. We're just a little bit more protective of our environment here in San Francisco. Yeah. We sure are, but that's going to be you. So this'll be oh, yeah. I'm going to hop box. I think now we've discovered that Spurs are just one of you know the premier teams in European football. Oh, yeah. That'd be you. All right. That's gross. By the way. Jesus, we all do it, though. The only crispy fries, you must add a former Liverpool slash Spurs grid and replace a current player for the final. Who would you choose this is the best question? What awesome question? So you mentioned this to me before. So I can really think about it. And it was not easy. I'm going to remove winks not because I don't like him as a player, but because I think he's going to be really important in this game. And I just worry about his fitness, and I'm gonna let let's just throw LUKA modric in there instead. Well, I like that sub. Okay. I decided that I would just after calling him my ex factor, but I would remove Jordan Henderson, and think of this Stephen Girard playing in advance position. They're just go you get to tackle you get to shoot you get to break into the box onto things you get to create. You don't have to do anything. We got the being behind you. I think that would be grit dealer option would be for this final in particular a snarling, grim soon as with the full nineteen eighties bubble Perm and tash just smashing into Harry winks. There you go. You're still cylinder softy. Do you have more because you just mentioned in aim one. You just mentioned a name there JJ, red card. Oh, no Graham soon as he made a comment that just that was by. I know it's just annoyed me. I know that you probably have more male, but it while you said his name, it just annoyed me, so much. Listen to this from Graham, soon as I believe this was on the website, balls dot e okay? R's website. Yeah. Spur shouldn't be there. You know Spurs team funds to you sit anyone season. This team's going lose nineteen games in Oakland petitions. And yet, the funding selves, on the final jumpy as league, you'd say, you're talking Nelson's of some of himselves fortunate to be there. I would like to remind grams. Soon as of something. This was brought to everyone's attention. From bardy, one of the guys on the fighting cock podcast, Grimsson mentioned the nineteen losses for Spurs this year across all competitions fair, fair. Let's go back now two thousand five home on obviously fourteen losses in the league. One loss in the League Cup one FA Cup defeat and three Champions League losses. Let's do the math JJ an add that up to nineteen. And this Spurs team is miles better than that Liverpool team in a lot of positions. I mean they don't have. Maybe Stephen Girard bought like look at some of the players Liverpool hat as well. Jimmy Shaw, ori- Smeets, vitamer Smeets are who who finds can look back now. What rose tinted glasses? I've never heard a player cost out more times in my life play Liverpool fans Vladimir Smicer don't even get me started. We have to get DD ham and off the bench to rescue things on. We had. I agree. I totally all know. Is that residual bitterness? Let's not forget that. It was Graham soon as who started out at Spurs under Bill Nicholson, because Bill Nichols was coming towards the end. Yeah. Wow. Yeah. And Bill Nicholson gave him the road he revived his career than under Jack Charlton and at Middlesboro and then went to Liverpool. So as he still bitter all these years later Spurs along there along there because they beat everybody in their path. All right. They belong, you can't the belong there and cope competitions is nonsense. By the way, is this the rise only one six is this the rise of the English teams in European competition? Again, I don't think they've ever fully. Since since on expert in one thousand nine I suppose. Yeah. Maybe maybe it is maybe this is a new era. No, with the with the money that's come into the primarily, but it's really it's Liverpool. Going back to back city were semi final quarterfinalists. I don't I don't know how quite the money that is in the league right now. Like look what's happened. You know, the Italian league has kind of fallen down the plaudit when, like there were a number of years, two thousand three Milan, Versi dentists in the final AC Milan. Stranglehold over this competition. Brown of came in you can plot from four onwards, though, can't you re and say that there was a revival of teams than there was a Spanish takeover. What's maybe swinging back again? It's all a little bit cyclical. Yeah. Oddly enough. This is the seven time. The two teams from the same country will meet in the Champions League final four of those times have occurred in the last seven seasons. Yeah. Interesting. And that's been mainly through the Spanish dominance, well by German iron and Borussia Dortmund. But you're right. The, the two real athletic. Oh matchups. And now this Tottenham liverties, phony Liverpool on Spurs of spent wisely on in case unrestricted budgets, whereas the money has been spent widely in extravagantly by Manchester United. It hasn't proven to be anything on. I mean cities breakthrough in Europe has yet to calm in terms of a trophy, but they're very much established power in Europe still. But there's only a few. Yeah, I don't know. I'm not sure the read that yet we're on that subject, I wanna ask you a question. So if you go most European Cup slash Champions League victories by country, do you know who has the most eighteen times a club from this country has hoisted the trophy? Is it inland notes? Spain England is now assured England is currently tied with Italy for second with twelve however England is a sure of obviously a winner from this year's Champions League. So they will move into second with thirteen Spain eighteen England thirteen come Saturday with ever proved with almost half of those Italy were noting with twelve Germany, seven the Netherlands with six and Portugal with four. I should've come up with. I should span straightaway. When you consider how many Real Madrid of one, right? Yeah. Silly of me is that it? No. Oh, two more to more to more. Mario Marshall call ten on the Instagram's will Liverpool fines be more happy, winning the Cup and rail Madrid's backyard. I don't think they're taking about that. That's not their backyard. The Wanda is at lead. He's home. I if the final was in the burn abode, there'd be some kind of linked to the past. But honestly, I don't think it's got anything to do with, I don't think plays a role not really haven't even given that announce a court. And finally Riyan dre whoever loses should sing the winning teams song. You wouldn't think you'll never walk alone. I don't feel like I wouldn't make you do that feel like it would be awkward June. Mean the low somebody was saying to me. Oh, you JJ. You must have had you must have a great bet on this being asking about the bets like. I think I think people realize that we do a podcast together on having to listen to the other ones. Joy is kind of the win. The stakes are high enough. It's the game. I don't need to like, enhance it with some dumb bet that like this is really this is for everything though, this if Spurs win on Saturday. All my cough, cope winds are white. They're wiped kinda all kind of there's league games. You're right trade every single one of them for this course. So there wasn't JJ. We're going to give our predictions. But I think we should save that for the very end the show. So you know what I'm gonna do right now. I have our five stars for five years memory of the week now. I had mentioned the other day about doing this one and you seem to have no interest in it, which, I don't know why. Because I think people really liked it. Did like it's the rap listening. Yeah. I felt like this was the right time even though it's a relatively recent memory. I think this is the right time to dust off the rap battle for this. This weeks five stars for five years review. So here you go. We'll get back in the time machine and only go back to the end of March of this year for this one. Is your five stars for five years memory of the week on caught offside? Head now from coughs, I towers. We're up on like the eightieth floor. Now, we had downstairs into the caught side towers, basement were crowd is gathering JJ for the battle that is set to ensue don't in the bunker, it's growing me. Condensation on the walls. In the air of anticipation almost a crackle in the room because they know there's two guys can spit lyrics like there's no tomorrow to enter their midst to the white his men ever seen such an event. So we flip flip a coin to see who goes first. Here you go. I know flip. All right. Tails. Oh, it's heads. You go. I all right. Here we go away. We go. This is this need any introduction. Or are you just ready to go ready to go spit fire? Yeah. Here we go. Spurs may have top four in the palm of their hands. They still like drop it and Daniel Levi's never opened up his pockets, your new NFL stadium. Stop it. You want a brand new home? But buddy that ended there is nothing in that stadium. But a lot of dreaming what you're going to do now. Harry Qena start at talk about leaving Delhi alley. Erickson Batonga Pacino. When they gone then what's the plan your new stadiums? Your only satisfation damn Adra, golden grumbling Nichols drawn on trying to convince y'all Spurs relevant comes onto strong. You ever stop and wonder why the pods too long? That's goes old, Spurs, Andy keep singing the same old song. We make progress plan better promises, plenty child, please. That's why you're trophy cabinets empty. Everybody gathered around Bobbi Mohan Monte, going to town for the annual beatdown. That's it. Spurs Spurs lots of spur. Vicious attack up. Oh man. All credit personal credit liquid MAC Miller made a person. So it goes is to beat from his album swimming. All right. All right. See you. You ready excited for the response for a little Jisi. Here we go. The scores. But look a little deeper, then. You'll learn much more checking out the table for the last nine years. I on top eight times more hardly even peers you went head. I'm supposed to be in pain, men, keep your most Sala with Harry Kane. Yeah. I know. Our trophy cases bear. It's hilarious. Just about as funny as Laura's carry as much watching it, you know, you start to shut her a see your challenge is starting to sputter. Meanwhile, keep getting told that our off come and wind Lee. No signings, Tottenham keeps on homing. Billy, Elliot Richardson are attack is never done, and what you gotta stop here comes the sun and last year took that one Yama. Plas it up and send it out like it's a podcast. You think cops impressive next a pot? He's a hack. Marizzio trippy end England's light fax, our new Brown.

Any please could care less on Tottenham feel that God. Impressive. On the roster. For years. Grow through lot of great artists. You don't mess with me now, I might try and sign you. Or you too hard. Jay records the battle. Piece is been your five stars for five years memory of the week. I think people listening to that. And remembering the comments people were genuinely surprised that thing that, like, we both had a competent showing that rat battle. I think people were surprised you brought the fire did that was fun. That actually wound up being a lot more fun than I was expecting to be who, who would have ever thought. Like if I knew then that these two teams will be meeting in a championship final. We would've saved that we don't clue especially the pessimism after the first legs. We were done. Yeah. So that was your five stars for five years memory of the week reminder to everybody. If you go on and leave a five star, I tunes review of the podcast with a favorite memory of yours from the five years that we've been doing this podcast. We will do the best we can to track it down and use it one of these upcoming weeks in the podcast for a future five stars five year memory of the week. So you go. That was fun. The rap battle. All right. It's time it's prediction time Bucko. Do we need dramatic music, dramatic music? They're Agri wear. What are you, have you wanna go first? Can we stop imagining drag?
