K, if you're looking for your next career job position or side hustle. You gotTa wake up every morning and say look I can do X. Better than anyone else in the world. Does that some sense? Good. So. Let's let's apply a filter over top of your life. Things I loved that we could do when I was doing some cad work computer aided design as you could turn layers on and off in a drawing. Also do that sometimes when I'm working with gamp the open source. Image manipulation tool kinda competes with photoshop and a sense, but it's open source I. Love it running on Lenox and on my Mac. But. That's that's overlay a layer. In there are three options in this layer. It comes from the book that Tipping Point by Malcolm glad well. By the way if you don't have it.

Hundreds Rescued, Vaccine Playbook & Big Ten Reversal- Thursday, September 17th, 2020
"Today is Thursday September seventeenth. We'll tell you about the historic flooding across the Gulf Coast and where the storm once known as Hurricane Sally is headed next also, the US government has a new playbook for how to hand out Covid nineteen vaccine will break down plus the big ten changes course, and it's getting back to football this fall after all twitter's updates ahead of election day and rebounds plans I smart glasses. Welcome welcome to the newsworthy all the day's news in less than ten minutes fast. They're fun and on the go America Mandy. Thanks so much for being here. You're ready. Let's do this. First an update about what was once Hurricane Sally. It's now battering Florida and Alabama with what the National Hurricane Center calls catastrophic and life threatening flooding. The storm made landfall at Gulf shores. Alabama as a category two hurricane yesterday it since been downgraded at last check this morning it's now a tropical depression but as expected, it's still doing a lot of damage to parts of the Gulf coast in Pensacola Florida the. Fire Chief told CNN the storm four months of rain in four hours. Some areas have already gotten more than two feet of rain and they could end up getting another foot this morning in one Florida county that includes Pensacola that flooding hit a depth of five feet nearly four hundred people had to be rescued there today about two hundred, National Guard members are going into the area. In case there are other people. Who are still trapped over in the town of Orange Beach Alabama one person has died across both states for an Alabama about half a million people lost power. The force of the storm downed power lines, blew off, roofs and uprooted trees in some places in both Alabama and Florida officials are telling people to stay inside not to go out and look at the damage yet. They say it's too dangerous for most people. especially with the roads damaged and many live power lines still in the streets, electrical crews from other states traveled to the southeast to help restore power as soon as possible as early this morning, the storm is still moving slowly at around seven miles an hour. So Alabama, and Florida are still getting the worst of it eventually later today the storm is expected to move into Georgia, and South Carolina weakening as it goes. The US government has now outlined a new plan for Corona virus vaccine. The CDC unveiled a so called playbook for states and local governments. One part of the plan it would have covid nineteen vaccines available for free taxpayers technically already put up the money but Congress and the trump administration agreed to allocate it for these vaccines. Another key part of the CDC playbook it tells state health agencies to create vaccine planning committees made up of leaders from places like hospitals, long term care facilities, and pharmacies. Still it's not clear which vaccine will be ready I remember both Medina and Pfizer potential vaccines in their final phase of testing in the US the CDC says as soon as one. Of them gets the okay. It will start to be distributed within twenty four hours at first though NBC News reports it's likely that initial supply will not meet demand. So the CDC playbook says, vaccination programs will have to start gradually healthcare workers, other essential employees and people at high risk of severe illness are expected to take top priority for who gets the vaccine. I. One thing that's important for states to work out is how to track when people get a vaccine and which one they get. If more than one will eventually be approved the front runner vaccines both required to doses either twenty one or twenty eight days apart states and cities have a month to submit their plans. Well, a new strongly worded report lawmakers say both Boeing and the FAA did not do enough to prevent to deadly plane crashes. The report comes after an eighteen month investigation into what caused the two Boeing seven thirty-seven Max jets to crash Democrats on the House Transportation Committee. But the findings together saying there was a horrific culmination of mistakes that set the stage for the crashes it points. To bad engineering and says, Boeing rushed through production ultimately, the report found the company profits ahead of safety it also says the planemaker withheld critical information about seven thirty, seven Max from the FAA. Its customers and pilots and overall. It says Boeing's culture needs a safety reset as for the FAA the report says the Government Agency had terrible oversight and sometimes dismissed its own experts to side with. Boeing NPR reports todate. This is probably the most comprehensive investigation of what happened leading up to the crashes. Lawmakers come through six hundred, thousand pages of records and interviewed two dozen people to put this report together some now say they'll draft up new legislation based on their findings. Now, it is worth noting no Republican, staffers signed off on that report and some said overhaul of the company. Is Not, really necessary calling the report partisan meanwhile Boeing says it has learned many hard lessons from the crashes and it's making fundamental changes within the company to this day. The 737 Max jet is still grounded. It hasn't flown since March of last year that could soon change though Boeing had worked with pilots and the FAA to fix the plane and it could soon be recertified to fly. The big ten wants to get back at the College Sports Conference just reversed course and is now going to fall football a shot after all remember just five weeks ago the big ten delayed fall sports, pushing it to the spring hoping to keep players safe while there's now a change of plans the conference now says, it'll start up the football season the weekend of October twenty third instead the university presidents and chancellors the wants to change their minds and make that call the now. Say Safety. Protocols should be enough keep in mind they face plenty of pressure from players, coaches, parents, and even president trump over the last month to restart games, and now they will. All fourteen teams will be scheduled to play eight regular season Games in eight weeks plus will have the opportunity to play a ninth game in December the Conference Championship and to be clear this reversal from the big ten only applies to football other fall sports like soccer and volleyball on hold for now.

The Federal Reserve is promising to keep interest rates low for years to come until at least two, thousand, twenty, three this affects borrowing costs for home buyers, credit card users, businesses, and more. So the Fed hopes continued low interest rates would encourage more borrowing and spending and it's needed fed chairman. Rome Powell pointed out. Americans are not spending at the rate they used to be and the job market is still hurting. Of course, things have improved since the peak of the economic downturn. Year back in April the unemployment rate was nearly fifteen percent. It's rebounded lot down to about eight and a half percent, but that's still much higher than the pre pandemic rate of three and a half percent chairman Powell said he's happy to see some progress, but he also won't lose sight of the millions of Americans. Still out of work he promised the interest rates will stay near zero quote until. The economy is far along in its recovery Powell said, he wants to see Congress take action to provide more economic relief president trump agrees he's now showing his support for that one and a half trillion dollar relief bill. We mentioned yesterday it's not clear what's included in this proposed bill, but we know a bipartisan group of lawmakers has been working on it. Hoping it compromise is actually possible to be continued. Starting today twitter is cracking down on misinformation about the election. The social network says it'll start labeling or even removing more types of misleading election claims. For example, it will intervene if someone says, the election is rigged, the ballots are being tampered with without evidence and overall twitter says it will not allow tweets that spread confusion or undermine democracy to go unchecked. You'll start seeing those changes now and then on election day, there's another rule twitter. Will Not allow what it considers misleading information about the outcome of elections. The company gave an example no claiming victory before the numbers are in and certified president trump and some other Republicans have criticized twitter for this type of thing accusing the company of bias against conservatives. Oh and remember facebook is also making some changes ahead of the election. For example, it's not going to allow any new political ads in the week leading up to it. Speaking of facebook is with the maker of ray-ban as in the luxury sunglasses brand the companies we'll be working together to design a pair of so called smart glasses that are set to be released next year no word yet on what kind of features have. But techcrunch reports they'll be re band branded facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says these smart glasses or quote the next step on the road to augmented reality glasses. The company is joining a crowded field though the verge reports Amazon Apple Google and Intel have their own projects, smart glasses in the works as well.

He's a two time superbowl winner and five time MVP and this is the first year. He's eligible to be a nominee. He's in the running alongside other football greats like, Super Bowl champion Charles, Woodson, and pro bowlers, Calvin Johnson Roddy White and Charles Tillman in total. There are one hundred and thirty nominees which will eventually get narrowed down to just five winners. They'll then be inducted next August. And that's it for the main ten minutes of news today. But now it's time for Thursday and today we're explaining emergency use. Or e UA The FDA will give a medical product this special kind of authorization during a public health emergency. Sometimes, it's for a product that's already been FDA approved for one type of us, but the same product will get emergency authorization for a different type of US other times. It's for a new medical product that hasn't gotten the agency's official green light at all yet the FDA does this products can get out to the public. As quickly as possible during an emergency when there's no FDA approved alternative at least since getting actual FDA approval traditionally takes years. So the agency will not give just anything emergency use all their relation. The FDA says the potential benefits of a certain product have to outweigh the potential risks during the coronavirus pandemic. The FDA has granted a lot of e you as for things like testing kids, ventilators, and treatments like severe and convalescent plasma. Thank you so much for listening today.

We welcome you back. So much has been made out of the return to play and how great it is but one of the aspects. We really haven't heard much about what are the players. Think about this. Our next guest David from the athletic Has done a deep dive with his colleagues at the publication and website. And it's it's quite interesting to say the least The name of the name of the story player Delay College football players confidentially discuss their return. David thank you for being here. Great to have you on and Really look forward to hearing about the process here good afternoon. Yeah thanks for having me fall so really interesting that this is the one part of the equation. We really haven't heard from so. How did you and your colleagues Attack this story. I think we noticed. What a lot of You know I'm sure you noticed and people that follow college. Football noticed over time as you know we heard from Politicians University presidents athletic directors coaches about the return to college football. We've not heard from players and you know obviously The school started. The gatekeepers may are no. There's not a lot of opportunities. Talk Layer then and when you do of course. There's there's some power dynamics there prevent players from speaking honestly and if you know what do they think about the shutdown? What are they thinking about coming back? What do they need to feel comfortable coming back and we wanted to answer some of those Difficult questions and so we use you know. We used our network of reporters and our network of contacts and and forty five players from all five power conferences group of five and the players to answer some of those questions and and get a sense of where players are In all of this. And you're GonNa you read that piece up on our side. There's a wide variety of opinion. I think you know like a lot of people in the country. There's a of opinions but who two things we really took away from it or one. The players WANNA come back. You know. I think there's a huge Conversation about well players are back and the students. Aren't that call into question. The definition of amateurism which I think is a fair question But the players actually feel more comfortable coming back without students because there's less people on campus last opportunity to transmit a virus and get sick and all those things so that was interesting But if they can't the other big takeaway from the fans can't Ten Games I thought players it just be. Hey we WANNA play regardless but more players said they would like to delay the season. Wait until it was safe for fans to to attend that was Surprising to me But ultimately we want him to what the Exercise Yeah I noticed in in in the survey. There's some personal stories here that the players didn't have tested positive but they knew people. How did that affect their their approach? Well I think you know a affects everyone differently. I think you know we didn't get a chance to talk to them. A lot about how it affected them financially. But I think everybody's feeling that as well and I think you know just this is a whole new World the players were kind of thrust into with very little notice. You know it was really back to that time in March Monday. You're Kinda keeping an eye on it but life is pretty normal and by the next Monday. You know everything. Shut down and and a couple of guys we talk to. You. Know he's got a cinder block and a backpack walking around and that's how he's working at curls with that and you know And not like some guys have the opportunity to to work with with private coaches into work with trainers. But you know this is This this is affecting everyone guys are trying to make do But this is It just put everyone in a very difficult situation and it was. It was I think integral to the sports to allow players they An opportunity to be heard because I think whether they realize it or not. They've got the at stake. I think in all of this situation. They're the ones being put their health and safety on the line and in this conversation they really been marginalized and then we were trying to change that. David from the Athletic David. There's so much conversation about this and guest earlier. Who talked about wearing masks? I immediately saw some blowback for that. Some of it depends on where you live in pretty much in the South. So you understand. There's a there's a divide but I was. I was really interested in the article. You see there was a quotation from power five defensive back and another another linebacker that talked about the media and the way the media has portrayed this I I realize a lot of other people have complained about this as well but I was surprised. Perhaps too to see it from young people. Yeah I think to two big things you know for one on social media you have cable news you have all these things you have all these different outlets a lot of different sources of information. There's a lot of Missing there and to this is a brand new virus that people still don't really understand and so I think as recommendations and realizations and these things are studied and and all of these things are changing over the last couple of months I I. It arose people's trust in well. Does anybody know what the heck they're talking about you know and I think You know anybody who's been also media for any amount of time over the last two months I'm sure seeing things that have ended up not being true and I think that that players you know that jumped out to to some of them As well you know I think as reporters we have a responsibility to be diligent and then try to get rid of that but you know there is a at least in my lifetime. I'm only thirty two but in my lifetime I had not experienced a time when the the trust the media was as low nationwide. That was right now. No it's pretty bad and I and I and I think part of it because even in the Sports weighing of of Social Media. This is become a a wedge issue and Those people are reading that. And and you're right. A lot of people don't know what to believe. I hope they I hope they at least listened to their their their coaches administrators administrators. Because enough of them are are cautioning them overall. I mean there's so many things in here I know you've treetop that a little bit but Those who are concerned Let's talk about that. I agr- brooker. Some are most most want to get back but this is a real serious thing if there is out or if there are outbreaks these are the young people who will be on the front line. Yeah I mean. I think it's difficult because the players have a lot of talk. You have the exact same big question. Everyone in the sport has and that is when somebody says positive and I think that's very clear that this is going to be a when not an issue what happens. We've been talking about this for two months and I have not heard a good answer for that. You know in any sport but especially in college football. I think you know the players feel of course and I think a lot of people feel safe way. That one positive test can't mean everything gets shut down immediately but there has to be a plan and there has to be some level of knowing. Okay if this happens then we have to do this. And that we have not really heard And so you can't enter the season where everyone's flying by the seat of their pants you. You know you're not gonNA have the season cancelled you're going to have a lot of games cancelled if you don't have a plan and that's what they gotta figure out and you know I. I think that the players had a huge concern about that. Most employers. We talked to know. Hey I guess this you know. Maybe I'm really sick. I don't fear death. You don't know we don't know what the long term affects virus are but they don't your debt but they do fear. Hey what happened? I WANNA get this. Oh somebody in one of my teammates gets it what happens then and they do fear or my plus family going to be safe. You know we talk about you know. Fans being a games and players were most comfortable playing front of fan if they're socially distance fans whatever the amount of fans there are they feel fine playing in front of them but we talked to a bunch of players said what about my family. My family wants to come see these games. They're going to be in the. Are they going to be safe at school going to do what is necessary to keep them safe? Make me feel comfortable about that. And that's a stickier issue and and that's something that a lot of players are worried about so I think you look at the biggest concerns. Those are the things that popped up for. You know my and keep me safe. Most of the guys pretty confident in that. But what exactly are they going to do? Is is a more difficult question that they really have to answer now. The players are coming back to what happens when someone test positive. What is the plan there? They don't have an answer to that and my family can be safe in the season. Those those are three big questions. I think that we really Heard from players when we asked them. What are you most concerned about this fall? David Evan from the athletic a fantastic piece a really deep dive From David and his colleagues David thank you very very much Great Work Thankful anytime. You Bet Just amazing or read and really.

It's GonNa have US playing regular-season in December but I'm afraid just GonNa go the way of Nascar. There's not going to be you buddy understand. No Yeah I mean. I think it's hard to predict that right now. I mean I T- today's one of those days where it's like watching. The stock market goes up. It comes down today. It's like straight up. I think there's optimism but I don't think he really That's why I think commissioner he's been so careful in in the comments that he has made that you you can't go too far outside of your comfort level here making predictions but but right now the I've talked to a million athletic directors. I mean they're all planning on fans getting in at some point absolutely now what I wanted to ask you. Is this what the Big Three colleges losing their starting quarterbacks Georgia Alabama Lsu? How do you think about Jack? Bill St Jacksonville. Nick is GONNA affair with those schools this year. Well I think he's in good shape. I mean he He certainly has a lot of experience. I think no no spring hurt a few people But but ultimately though I think though Knicks is going to be an amazing quarterback this year really go. I really can't wait to see him.

But there's a lot of or have to wear masks every day ten hours a day in order to keep their job and be able to work. I think it's pretty sad. If they say we gotta wear masks go to football game three hours and everybody starts crying about it maybe they ought to just give them a diaper like death. Oh give him a diaper while got and I mean you're not you. I know you remember the New Orleans. Saints have no problem. Where bag overhead? No you're right by the way.

If they start football back near everything we play ball and all that will you guys be doing the SEC network. Onsite thing he again you know. That's that's something. I really have no earthly idea. And I don't sound like nobody's even brought it up. no Hey let by the way politics let me go ahead and and give a PSA for all our listed out there things are back to normal and then some down here in this part of the world. It's bumper to bumper alway to the beach. The police is ever dadgum where y'all like you got sense. I know I know I. I don't mean to make light of this. This is a serious subject but Social distancing at Gulf shores is. What about four inches? Have big the prophylactic is I knew. I knew you'd send us into the weekend. Adam hoge hanging our jobs okay.

Yeah Great candidate thank as probably got some pool or do they used to be there. John Cameron swayze. Yeah you know. Here's the thing I tried. They always tell you a radio or newspapers you when you talk to someone. You think that you're being heard nationally. And when I talked to you there about three people in America they can understand this conversation. Like we're sitting in a bar in in a row to eighty in Birmingham like back into a good old days is dollars now. Now now I have to ask you because Andy Katz lecture the audience here about an hour ago on mass. The mask on your job absolutely and you know what as I've always said whatever it takes to bring the paycheck home if they don't show up but ethnic I'll do it because these days brother.

Oh He's looking. He's he's ahead by thirty points in the polls. I know any when you listen to do one of his interviews on the radio. Everything reminds me a Ross Perot. He's got all these talking points and it's the same on over and over but it usually likes of fire so our we try to avoid politics but it was a punchline until you it was a good punch line so you stepped on it as you can tell. Chris was like Always describe Chris among the mercury seven for those of you who don't follow the space system or NASA that was the first group of astronauts. Show that were part of the the manned space group with a back in the sixties late fifties early sixties. We will take a break much more to come as we continue here on a Friday afternoon. You can tell. We're we're into the juice you're listening to the Paul Finebaum show podcast. It's been another incredible week on the show. I'll say this Raga doses sleep now. Let's throw it back with the FINEBAUM. Bomb Friday rewind to welcome gate of the program President. Thank you very much for being here. One thing is we need to get over panic. He'd be calm about this thing. It is here. We're going to deal with it but you know if one of our athletes for example tidy on I about football right. Half one of our athletes gets against the coronavirus. We can't just shut the whole the whole thing that we've got to figure out how to control that part of Fokker doing someone's GonNa come down to the coronavirus. I mean let. Let's just be clear about so. The question is how to handle it. Do we have isolation rooms? We put them into quarantine a number of things like that. Move forward with our next guests who Over the last couple of weeks as Received an incredible amount of notoriety and probably as much criticism as a coach who blows a call on the goal line at the end of the the SEC championship game. Our next guest is governor Brian Kamm Governor Camp. It is a great pleasure to welcome to the program. Good afternoon Paul. I told the coach Kirby smart that same thing that you just said the other day so a lot of conversations. That's one of the things. I was talking to coach. Smart about the President Moorhead University Georgia. And other people about what? That's going to like what they're working on and not know all the president's Especially in the. Sec are having conversations with the commissioner and and making decisions in conjunction with Public Health. Bugs just like we are and you know we stand ready to work with them. I think we gotta continue to follow the data and the signs and the advice of public health officials. Say what that's GonNa live like. I believe it's a little too early to tell whether we're going open on. Labor Day with a packed house or sparse crowd crowded all coach Kevin O'Sullivan for our sport. Obviously GEEKS GONNA grow and get even better. We really need some relief when the N. T. Double A. I'm and I'm hoping that happens. Obviously we're going to get more kids to school. We're GONNA get more kids back to school. You know. Our sport is giving you know in your thirty five players on your twenty seven three on scholarship. But when you're going to get more kids to school on the front end and GonNa get juniors back to school seniors. I'm just hoping we get some relief on those numbers. The biggest thing to happen in college. Athletics is football needs to get back on the field and what that looks like.

Thanks for being back with us and I know the challenges continue but hopefully everything is going well and as far as the testing I've heard from our our Medical folks you know it'll be around sixty five dollars a task that they would do but but We we've had advice that the best best prevention and the best way to handle this is is doing all those premium preventative measures of of testing temperature. keeping things sanitized Making sure that we're were screening on daily basis. Were masked if you can't if you can't keep the sex separation making sure that people at rest Take extra precautions all those things that that to try to prevent and if there are symptoms that that then you'd welcome back Dr Show.

Everything download the homeadvisor APP to get started. Could even this Memorial Day was in many ways a study? In contrast perhaps more than ever because in today's traditional memorial day mix of official remembrances for those who died serving this country in the armed forces and porgies marking the unofficial. Start of summer there were contracts. Within contrast as the coronavirus death toll approaches one hundred thousand Americans killed the president's aid Arlington National Cemetery. The man running against him former vice president. Joe Biden at a veterans memorial in Delaware. One wearing a mask not contrasting signals or perhaps contrasting priorities as for the Vietnam memorial with the names of fifty eight thousand servicemembers killed over the nineteen years of that conflict two contrasting traditions remembering the dead but preserving life. A virtual ceremony was held online. Those who survived the war might also survived this contrasting signs as well and how the commander in chief chose to conduct himself in his moment is in. This moment is a self-described wartime president. Today at Fort McHenry in Maryland. Reading prepared remarks. He sounded like any other president on any other. Memorial Day as one nation we mourn alongside every single family that has lost loved ones including the families of our great veterans together we will vanquish the virus at America will rise from this crisis to new and even greater heights. Well that was at five twelve in Maryland at two thirty four on twitter. The president called Pennsylvania Congressman and Marine Corps veteran connor lamb quote an American fraud over the weekend tweets and re tweets the president. Mock the looks the weight of three prominent women. He flung other insults as well. Which don't bear repeating. He continued pushing a baseless conspiracy theory about the death of the young woman. Who worked for Joe Scarborough back when he was? Us Congressman and. He played golf the very thing. He attacked President Obama for during the Abullah outbreak. If the president is still believes there is war underway against this virus. He clearly now sees it. As every state for itself we've learned that the administration's latest plan on testing continues to largely put the burden on individual states experts. They voicing doubts the executive director of the Association of Public Health Laboratories told me New York Times that when it comes to obtaining the supplies needed to do that testing which has been a huge problem. Already is you know said quote. You can't leave it up to the states to do it for themselves. This is not the hunger games. Let's hope not then again. The president as you know has already weighed in quite clearly on the subject setting the tone as far back as March thirteenth Dr Fouled. She said earlier this week that the lag intesting was in fact a failing. Do you take responsibility that. And when can you guarantee that every single American who needs test will be able to have a test? What's the date of that you know? I don't take responsibility at all. Because we were given a a set of circumstances and we were given rules regulations and specifications from a different time. And we're now in very very strong shape. Keep him on his back when he said that it was hard to figure out whether he was merely ducking accountability. In retrospect are also going forward. Well today the answer seems clear. The president is leaving responsibility to the states. While also tweeting. The credit for any success belongs to him meantime. He's not telling the truth about conditions in those states tweeting yesterday quote cases numbers and deaths are going down all over the country. Well in fact sadly data from Johns Hopkins University. New cases are going down in just ten states the rising and eighteen and holding steady and twenty two in other words in forty out of fifty states corona virus infections or not declining. Now it would be good to report tonight that they are but that sadly is not so. New deaths are declining slightly. The blue dotted line. There is the five day moving average however because we can numbers tend to be under reported and corrected upward later and this is a three day weekend. It's hard to join any conclusions yet. Much less definitive one says the president has and you won't hear this president or his administration reminding those states where cases arising that under the CDC guideline is and the guidelines that the president and the coronavirus task force once backed. That was just a couple of weeks ago. They shouldn't be reopening. He's doing the opposite. Though in fact tweeting this morning quote transition to greatness get ready it is already happening and that type of language when set against what nearly every health officials says including ones on his own task force is creating the final holiday contrast side-by-side two different. Americas this holiday weekend when it comes to coronavirus in one you see. 'em teaches people keeping their distance wearing masks being cautious in the other even in states where cases or not dropping there are people packed together. Throwing caution perhaps viral particles to the wind and in the middle of all this. The president has been threatening to move the August Republican convention out of Charlotte North Carolina. If the state's governor does not in the president's words quote guarantee we will be allowed full attendance in the arena stuck out thousands of people from all fifty states packed into an arena in the middle of a pandemic from more. Now the state of the country this Memorial Day both from a public health and political perspective or joined by CNN chief political analyst. Gloria Borger also see medical doctor slain gander. She's an epidemiologist and infectious disease specialist and Co host the podcast titled Simply Enough Epidemic. So Dr Taner what do you make of the trump administration's doubling down on their strategy of putting responsibility of testing on the states. Do you think this will turn into the hunger games scenario with with competing for resources and supplies yet again Anderson I think sadly the federal strategy is no strategy and at an abdication of responsibility to the states. We've already seen a hunger games. Lord of the flies kind of scenario previously involving Bente laters and other personal protective equipment. And I think we're going to see this continue. I think there just needs to be more leadership and more role modeling from the federal level which were just not getting right now given all we saw and heard from the president this weekend. I'm wondering what message he's sending to Americans about the virus and and where we stand in the fight against it because it is this strange doubles double speak. I mean that you know He. He talked about You know others playing both sides. Whatever that meant. But he's seems to be making both sides of the argument on the one hand through his task force they put out these guidelines about how stage should reopen but then he's undercutting it immediately and continually and that seems to be where his focus is now. Well he's undercutting it and then not paying attention to it and then when he orders states who have reservations about churches opening to Reopen Salmon override U. which by the way has no power to do The messages things are normal. Everything is back to normal. I'm out here playing golf. I'm not wearing a mask. Never mind the warnings from Dr Han at the FDA or Dr Burks that everybody has to be careful now really careful about the way we reopen and the way we behave on this holiday weekend. The president the president's message was I'm in charge. Things are great. Things are back to normal. The economy's GonNa get popping pretty soon so not to worry. We have it all under control which gives people think a certain Permission to say well if he's not wearing a mask. I don't have to wear a mask if he's out there playing golf not wearing a mask not worrying about the pandemic. Well okay fine. That's good enough. I me and that is a mixed message Anderson Doctor. What about the testing standards laid out in this report? That testing three hundred thousand people a day focused on those likely to have. The virus is sufficient for containment. Does that make sense? You Remember Bill Gates being on on our town hall a couple weeks ago talking about the. You know the two hundred thousand Tests a day figure that the administration was using he essentially said that's a phony number Because it takes days for many of those tests to get results and by that point person very possibly has interacted with any number of people in potentially spread the virus. So what is the the point of that that that old test That number is nowhere near enough so it's just a pretty quick math if you say if you WANNA test everybody who comes into the hospital which is what we're doing right now. What we call a rule out when you come into the hospital to make sure you don't have bits that's already about one hundred thousand test today. Then you talk about testing everybody. Who's in a nursing home both the residents and the staff maybe twice a month so every incubation period. So that's another one hundred and fifty thousand tests a day and then you have people working meatpacking. People who are frontline workers doctors nurses. Emt's not to mention people who have symptoms and people who've been exposed so those numbers or more like a million tests. Today Anderson a million tested there but I mean is that is that a realistic number two that one can actually do and get results in a timely manner. Well I think with the advent of what are called Antigen Test. This is the third kind of tested has come out which is really a test for the proteins of the virus. This much quicker simpler cheaper test. That does promise to help us scale this up. It's not as sensitive as the PC TESTS. Which were the first test to come out test for the material? But if you're talking about repeat testing people on a fairly frequent basis you know. Once twice a month depending on the setting That probably is sufficient but we need to be scaling up that capacity dramatically right now it does seem and I mean it's awful thing to think about but it does seem like there's a such a clear obvious political calculation by this White House by this president on battling this virus. I mean that's what it seems like. It is being seen through political terms. I mean obviously even just his focus on churches reopening. I mean you know I you know He. He has not had a track record throughout his life of being a big a tender of churches And you know obviously everybody wants religious institutions to be able to to open and function and people be able to express their faith and gathered together But it's the idea that you know. He's the person pushing this when it's really not up to him It's just one of the more obvious political kind of considerations he's making sure short is anderson throughout all of this. We've seen a president who wants to take responsibility when it's good for him such as saying I think. Churches need to reopen this very important. He's he said. Churches are essential and he wants that to reopen. It comes to taking responsibility for testing as we were just talking about Forgetting enough swabs for testing From the beginning of this getting enough PP etc. He's like well. That's up to the states. It's up to the states and so in terms of reopening its estates. Do it well. He'll take some credit for that but the governors are the ones they're left. Say Wait a minute. It is as you as you use the phrase before the Hunger Games. It is the hunger games because we have to compete against each other. And why didn't you use the defense production act from day one to help us so we didn't have to compete? New York doesn't have to compete against Oklahoma or whatever state or the governor of Maryland. Didn't have to go to South Korea to to get what he wanted. So it is a president who says wait a minute your responsibility when it could fail but my responsibility when he's giving the political message. Which is. I'm a cheerleader. Things are going to get better. Things are great here. I am out on the golf course. I personally don't want to wear a mask. It's a personal decision. So you know that's up to you so it is. It is clearly political For this president who by the way was tweeting liberates states would democratic governors. Who were worried about reopening too quickly? If that isn't political I don't know what is Dr Gander when you see a states reopen. There's there's there's several states have reopened that have not seen an uptick in in cases Which you know people look at it and say well look you know that stayed. There hasn't been obviously you know we're looking at the numbers cases. Rising eighteen states falling ten holding steady in twenty two states. Would you say to people who say well look? The economic damage. Being done is worse than than the medical issues. Well I think one issue that has not been clearly communicated to the American Public Anderson is. Why testing is so important here. So it's actually twofold. It's both for public health and for the economy so from a public health perspective. We WanNa know who's infected right now and we WANNA separate that we want to isolate them and offer them treatment. We want to separate them from people who are not infected. So we can break chains of transmissions. We don't have ongoing transmission. And secondly if you think about it do you want to go get your haircut or see the dentist when your dentist hairdresser might have co bid whereas if we had more regular testing of everybody something that Paul Romer the former chief economist of the World Bank has proposed the idea that I would see my dentist and I know that he's been tested in the past two weeks. That would make me feel a lot more confident about going out in public and so testing is really key to protecting the public health and the economy was a picture from the ozarks. Were showing their Gloria doctor thank you so much. Our next guest. Silicon Valley executive has been writing extensively and very influential about the pandemic is writing. has really been essential reading for me and for many others. His latest effort can be seen on Youtube. Posted today compares. How tightly countries have locked themselves down with how well they've done in slowing their outbreaks his Tomasz Polio. And we're glad to have him back on the program to Oscar to see you you you've described what's happening as a hammer and dance. What happens if some states continue to observe strict guidelines or at least Stricter compared to what other states are doing which is the hammer while others. Start what you call the dance as we saw this weekend a lot of dancing has begun. That only works eve travelers going into the state that he's doing all. The right measures can be quarantined. So for example have been doing that and enforcing it. Everybody that goes into the states are into a two week getting to tweak quarantine. Many other states have rules like this but they're not enforcing them as a result a state for example like California that has been very aggressive on the hammer and wants to dance but he's getting a lot of people from outside and they're not being quarantined than all of these efforts have been worthless. How do you see big picture? What's happening right now? In the United States we are seeing one of the only places in the world where the highest level of sovereignty decided not to use its power That hasn't happened in nearly any other country in the world as a result. Obviously we were just saying. The states are left to fend for themselves. But they don't have all the power so that other countries have been one of the key ones that other countries have eased the one off closing their mortars and so this is something that there are some precedents for and I think at these points and even then some states don't care as much as others. I think that the states that really care about shooed consider that is really just quarantining. All the travelers are coming into into states. Is that even possible for state like New York or you know. I don't know for any state. Is it really possible to close their borders and quarantine anybody who comes in impossible and But some of his states have. It's easier than others for example. California all off. Its neighbors have very few cases and other result for California's Israeli Easy Sima from Hawaii or Alaska that they might just WanNa on quarantine people coming from airports Obviously for states like New York. It's harder but we've done this in in Europe in Germany for example or check so vodka. All these countries are very very interconnected. They had a lot of people going back and forth from the states and for a few weeks just goes orders. You know part of the reason for locking down was to give the healthcare system sort of time to space out the cases and not be overwhelmed and not collapse have has it. Has that actually works so moving forward. We're seeing all these places reopening If there is a huge groundswell now of cases what happens? There's two goals right. One of them is to prevent that from happening in the future. And I think we're in a better position now because at least we're alert know what's going on with testing much more and if there's a massive outrage we can see that coming so. I think that is A. We're in a better position. In that regard. The problem we have is that going for that strategy. Which mitigation might end up with what we called her immunity in my means that we don't go for a lot of people being agree Being Infected the time but overtime they accumulate accumulate accumulate and by the time sixty five percent of the population has been infected. You having a comfort the US a million people dead. So that's ease the issue that's states like twenty four now ally like the Idaho like Alaska one to avoid if we can crush the curve and really get the cases to a minimum until backseat retreats. Man's we can open the economy safely without all the death. And seeking this burden there is I mean if if the vaccine You know takes longer than people. Think herd immunity. How long would it take to get her immunity? And the I think the best country that has explored these Sweden Sweden in they said. We're going to be cautious. But we're not gonNA close a lot of places. The closed some schools And the ask people to stay home and when they said at the beginning was there's no way to stop this and by May around twenty five to fifty percent of our population. We'll have these anyway. Well it turns out that they did a test of antibodies. The way we The ones that we were talking about before Around the beginning of May they were expecting again. Twenty five fifty percent of people infected. They found seven percents And so that means that they are ten times like we need to milk it by ten. The number of infected and then In order to get to her immunity and so was not. It's not going to be fast is going to take time. And during that time people are scared to go out. They don't WanNa consume and the economy is penalized instead of taking the heat. Early on aggressively. And then once the case controlled opening up much more Much more confidence and offered the death toll in Sweden is grab much greater than it's than any of the neighboring states around it you've also written about CDs and spreading. Can you explain what you mean by that? Yeah so so the two keys there right. He's you don't want I if you're doing one hundred hundred zero controlling the cases in your state right. I want to come into the state and seed. Uk's then after that you don't want them to spread into into the state and so there are some rules that you can fellow to do that. Like for example for travelers if you wanted them for two weeks all of them than suddenly. You're you're seeing is much lighter and then the spreading and we now have good understanding of what works and what doesn't for example. You were you. Were TALKING ABOUT ABOUT CHURCH CHURCHES? He's really not that byner is not churches open or closed the issue churches. Is that a lot of the spread of the coronavirus is perfect for churches in three spreads. Really well in places that are contained. A lot of people were together for a long time singing talking and touching each right. So that's why there's so many outbreaks in churches and this solution should not be open or closed in fact. It's not a lot of churches are open remotely and there are other many ways that we could do to open openly. Open them safely for example. We could be doing these outdoors. We could be wearing masks. We could mean making sure that everybody keeps sixty apart. These measures would dramatically reduce the contagion in churches but these rules of thumbs are also valid for all economy. We can using these insides changed. The economy changed. How businesses are set up so we can the economy more safely. I appreciate all. You're doing all your writing about thank you very much. We're breaking news now from the White House in the wake of new numbers out from Brazil. More than eight hundred fatalities Justin the last twenty four hours according to the government of Brazil nearly twelve thousand new cases to the US. Germany diamond has the White House for us with the latest on what the administration is now. moving up their travel restrictions on Brazil. Right Anderson just yesterday. The president's had announced these new travel restrictions barring most foreign nationals who have been to Brazil in the last two weeks entering the United States that was supposed to go into effect on Thursday at the end of the day instead. They are now moving that date up to tomorrow at the end of the day tomorrow. This of course comes. Anderson is there has been an explosion of cases of corona virus in Brazil. It is now has the second most reported cases in the world. We should note that president trump has floated this these possible restrictions last week but prior to that Anderson. He had repeatedly praised the Brazilian President Bolsonaro for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Despite the fact that Bolsonaro has been one of those leaders who has repeatedly downplayed the threat of this virus and really pooh-poohed the notion of these lockdowns and really focus more on the economic impact than on the health impact in his country but nonetheless. This seems to suggest Anderson that there is a growing concern at the White House about this and we should note that the CDC Director Robert Redfield just a couple of weeks ago. He said that if there is indeed a second wave of this virus where second peak of this virus in the fall in the winter in the United States that it likely will be triggered in part at least by growing cases in the southern and so this is certainly part of the concern at the White House and among the coronavirus task force in the White House. We should note. Anderson has left open the possibility of additional travel restrictions on other countries in Latin America enters in Germany diamond Germany. Thanks very much next.

We've been talking tonight about the president's celebration of this holiday weekend as a turning point toward His push to what he calls a transition to greatness being a resurgence the economy looking at the numbers though in states such as Alabama experts worry about a transition to something worse. That red line is the moving average of new cases in the State. Moving there in the wrong direction in moment. We'll be joined by the mayor of Montgomery Alabama I our Gary Tuchman reporting from Gulf shores corona players cases. Alabama are going the wrong way. They are trending up but the state is now wide open for business. Social distancing is the states rule but then effort has often been an exercise in futility at restaurants and bars in the beach towns of Alabama this Memorial Day. Weekend as people come back to party at this restaurant and bar in Gulf shores Alabama. Many wonder why it took this long to open just here just to have fun and meet everybody and they go rhino across the street. The beach is jammed. Groups are supposed to be six feet away from each other. Police work to enforce that groups are also ordered to only consist of people who live in the same household. There is no active effort to enforce that Bailey. Cars Twenty one. She just graduated from college. Everybody's gotTa go somehow. Yeah but in a way like I mean I don't want to. I mean it's ask what God has in store for my life family has the same mindset as me and We kind of disagreed that If we get it we get it on. We're GONNA handle it as a family and just get over it. 'cause that's what family does when. It comes to corona virus. Medical experts will tell you. They're very concerned about the immediate future. Here in Alabama on the speech though your eyes and ears will tell you something much different. Just like the flu right. Not just like the plumage contagious. That's play also they do doctrine to me. That's that's just the way I look at it. Juvenile concerns about being at the beach with so many people with your children. How COME YOU'RE NOT WORRIED. All that someone could be sick mocked by and get you sick because it's there's enough wind and air the it's going to clear out here. The wind in the air. Don't clear away. There's no proof of anything like that. There's wind everywhere in the world now about it and then there is the issue of masks. We saw a grand total of zero being worn on the beach. Do you ever wear math now. My wife and kids do I. Don't come you don't I just feel I'm GonNa be okay but the masks to keep you okay. It's to keep your wife and kids okay. To protect them I get it. I get it Survival rate is so high. I think you're not worried about them. Getting sick I'm GONNA live I. We're all gonna get sick for something eventually. President trump is part of this conversation. I mean he's not wearing masks. I'm not gonNA wear masks if he's not worried. I'm not work. The president. Yes sir. Speaking of Masks Alabama has mandated for restaurant and bar workers. Some restaurants have but it others. Were you arrived unannounced and shot cell cellphone video employees. Were not wearing masks. The manager here telling us after our visit. He now given masks to his employees with instructions to wear them at other restaurants where we also saw an employee wearing masks. The manager told us they will continue not wearing them because she wants it that way. Despite violating the state order traffic very heavy in Alabama's beach towns all nearby hotel sold out as the holiday weekend began. Alabama is back in business convinced surge or not when it's time to go. It's just of time to go. Gary joins US now. Who who enforces violations of the state reopening orders? Well Anderson the police departments throughout the state of Alabama out. That right to make those kind of arrests. I talked to short time ago. The Police Department here in Gulf shores. They say they've made no arrests over this Memorial Day weekend. I talked to one police officers on the beat. He said they've issued several warnings. Now at this time it's not the most pleasant thing to make these kind of arrests but you don't have to be a sleuth defined these restaurants around here with waiters and bartenders. No master all over the place. As a matter of fact I got my lunch at a place just like that earlier today Anderson Gary. Thank you stay safe. Steven Reid is the mayor of Montgomery Alabama. He joins US now Mary. Thanks so much being with us. You've said that Alabama's easing restrictions has given people a false sense of security. I guess when you see the beaches of Alabama crowded with people know social distancing not wearing masks are you concerned absolutely gives me pause to think about what we may see the next week or two when people get back to their communities from vacation down on the Gulf coast problematic. That people leave this matter for me that people are cavalier about. Their behavior is problematic to me that we have not done a better job at the state and national level of explaining the seriousness of this virus. To not only the people directly but also to their friends their family and certainly our first responders and medical personnel. Who also participate in this. It's difficult for any public official. You you know. Obviously you want your community to economically thriving and you want people your community to be safe and healthy. There are an awful lot of people are just you know tired of lockdowns or being at home and you know. See the president not wearing a mask. And just think whatever's going to happen is going to happen how do you what do you say to that? Well what we're GONNA do in Montgomery is to make sure people understand. We have not won this battle yet. We want people to stay at home. We want them to wear masks when out in public. We'd been strongly encouraging that for now a couple of months. I we're also asking them to adhere to the CDC guidelines on social distancing. But we also understand that people are seeing stories of recovery. We're working with a small business community to make sure they get back up and going We have fun together. Recover together fun here in this community to help our small business owners. But we don't want to do that at the expense of the health of the community. We have to continue taking these precautions. And we're trying to over communicate not only with business leaders but our faith leaders as well as a hospital administrators. Who told me that? This is a crisis. This is something they have not seen in decades in this region and they are very concerned not only for the community but also the staff so they haven't a mostly and physically spent staff right now and that has a domino effect not only here in Montgomery but throughout this region and we just have to continue to Sound the alarm without concern. Do you in Montgomery how do you do? You have power to enforce. I mean who? Who's WHO's in charge of enforcing the mandates from the from the governor. Is it city by city? Is it up. The local officials Baya largest city by city county county-by-county county except for maybe two counties ought sixty seven in the state. We have to adhere when the governor lifted are the sale tinplate order. That really made a big impact. I think that gave people a false sense of security of where we stood in this battle against the pandemic so we're continued to try to explain to people where we all right now and what we're doing is we're trying to partner with is we're trying to partner with people so social media influences to let everyone know where we stand and we still have a little bit ways to go to beat this virus. We're just not there yet and we have to get people to understand that or we're going to have a second way. There's GONNA cost us much more than it already. Has You know you've been very vocal about the lack of ICU beds. intensive care unit beds in Montgomery. I know at one point. You were down to one. Icu bed laughed. Where do you stand with that? Now are your hospitals we. We've seen marginal improvement. We have probably seven percent of of ICU beds The hospitals believe that this is manageable but is not sustainable. And that's what they ashamed with me is that they are concerned about as they are concerned about their bids. They concerned about issues as well as just the overall resources are dwindling. So we aren't at the cliff yet but we can see it and so we're just trying to make sure people understand We want to slow things down before we get to close near Stephen Rain. I appreciate your time. Thank you very much wish you the best always a pleasure up next breaking news on potential crowbars vaccine in the works. The news comes as a group of researchers at Oxford University say that declining rates of infection may hinder the ability of scientists. Everywhere successfully develop a vaccine. We'll explain that ahead. Breaking News Report on the race for vaccine a tenth company now says it has entered the human trial portion of the testing process. Maryland-based NOVAK'S SAYS IT expects preliminary safety effectiveness results by July. Whoever different team in the United Kingdom is advising caution when it comes to news about vaccines researchers at Oxford University your past the small clinical testing phase and are now trying to test thousands and they say they face a hurdle that may at first sound like a positive declining infection rate of the project leader told a British newspaper this weekend. That is more difficult to test a vaccine with fewer people getting sick quote. There's a fifty percent chance that we get no result at all for more on the hunt for the vaccine. I'm joined by placing medical analyst and director of the Division of Medical Ethics at Nyu Langone Medical Center and in Hayden a trial participants vaccine being developed by the company for Derna. Or when you hear that this Oxford Colonel Virus vaccine trials if fifty percent chance of showing no result at all this after the amount of time and money. That's been put behind it. Is that a a a setback. How do you see this? Big Tech Back Anderson. It's predictable in some ways because you're trying to test a vaccine as the ebbs and flows. We know that in some parts of the world it's rising Brazil or in other places it's diminishing like the UK so when you start out to test it and give it to people you're presuming. The virus will be there to infect them so you can figure out the vaccine works benefits. If it starts to get tamp down by behavior change just ebbs and flows. Naturally you're usually at risk of wasting time and while the president likes to talk about work speed in developing vaccines I think we might have to think about some alternative research Trial Designs in order to get answers in first of all. How have you been feeling since since we last spoke because you're you're participating in a study from Derna a for the vaccine? Where what stage are you at? That's right yeah so I've received both doses of the vaccine at this point and I feel totally normal. I feel like I did before. This whole thing started That is to say know. I'm in good health so at this point. I'm just just waiting and being watched by the clinic in do you get in. I mean do you have a sense of how long this may take for for your free? Yeah unfortunately you know as a participant. I'm not given any information about the trial and he's sooner than anyone else. So recently Madonna was the press release showing some preliminary data from my study and seeing that press release online was the first I learned about. You know a bit about my own body about the fact that I have developed. Antibodies as a result of this vaccination. It's unclear yet whether those antibodies are going to be useful. But you know I'm sort of like everyone else just waiting eagerly for this kind of news right. If memory serves me the small and medium doses of the vaccine were the most effective or the least side effects. And they're going to continue with those not with a higher. Did you get the higher dose? I did yeah. I was among the first people to receive the highest dose. Did you get a lot of side effects? I did have a bit of a rough go. Things for twenty four hours their Fever nausea things like that that passed after about a day. I'm happy to see. Madeira is discontinuing. The highest dose. At this point I think that's good news overall But there's still a lot to be hopeful about for this candidate vaccine moving forward. Of course still. It'll take months till we know if it's really working. Aren't you talking about different methods? I mean can you explain? The difference between clinical study like Ian is participating in. What's known as a challenge study which I think is what might have been referring to him since? Oh in the standard study that Ian is in you get these safety reports. And then you've got a jump to like ten thousand people and you need a big number because you're waiting for nature to infect people who have given the vaccine to to see what's going to happen so it can be a long haul months maybe a year. There is another design. It's ethically contentious but it's one I would defend. That is back tonight. The people and then deliberately in fact maybe four to five hundred of them with the virus. Pick people who are young who are facing a pretty remote risk of death or hospitals. -Ation in the reason you do that Anderson is that does speed up the ability to get good or data quickly. You're not waiting a year. You can get an answer in month so obviously controversial because you would only take volunteers people who knew that there was no rescue for them if they were to get really really sick from getting infected. But I think it's something we ought to be thinking about and Art The ethics behind on your Nethon. You you look ethical issues. All the time is the fact that just the the global nature of this. The death toll does that tip the balance in in a case. Like this for you. I think it does. We're up to one hundred thousand deaths year every month. We delay trying to see if the standard method of getting an answer gives us a vaccine. That can work it. Means hundreds thousands more deaths worldwide. While waiting remember Anderson though risk factor for young person. Twenty to thirty who might volunteer hears about the same as donating a kidney to try and rescue someone else. So it's not a wild risks. They're taking it somebody. Would you tolerate and again? You only take volunteers. You'd only take people who certainly understood what was going on. I think if we're GONNA get hopefully a vaccine maybe won't be this first one maybe be a second one maybe will be the third one we try but we need speed the the the world basically is going to have to vaccinate his way out of this pandemic ultimately and I think the standard way of doing it is just too slow in A. I know you're not spoken about this before. We're we're what do you think about the challenge? Study idea yes. Give it a lot of thought to Britain bed on it. Basically I'm not looking to rush into something like that but it's something I am open to An and I've written that. Basically conditions have to be bright and there are several conditions it has to make sense scientifically of course. It's risky but as Dr Kaplan mentioned for people like me were pretty much. The lowest risk cohort. There's something like a ninety nine percent chance that I wouldn't even need to be hospitalized if I were to catch Cova so that's one. You know that certainly lowers the risk of bit it would be better if we had medications and interventions but at the end of the day if the conclusion is that a challenge study really could speed things up that there was scientific justification to do it and it could perhaps prevent a second wave It something that I would be open to In hidden we've talked before and I just think it's amazing. What would you've done thus far and Thank you and thank you for talking about appreciate an art Thank you Important discussion have or cap on. Thank you up next week until remember those who have fallen to the krona virus. A police officer dedicated his life to his family's community so you bet him when we return. Us Bank thanks. You going to work and for staying home for treating patients and having patients for being on the frontlines while having our backs. Thanks for working together and playing podcasts. You love us. Bank can't thank you enough but we can do our part that's why we've donated millions to help our customers employees and communities in need equal housing lender member. Fdic we mentioned the top of the broadcast day now. This nation will have suffered one hundred thousand deaths. Due to the coronavirus it is a staggering figure in. We can only begin to really try to wrap our minds. It's more than just a big number. Each death obviously represents a family. That's been changed forever and as often as possible in this program. We want to remember those who've been lost tonight. Randi Kaye brings us the story of New Jersey police officer. Charles Roberts was police chief said of him in a statement to CNN quote. There was no other like him. An officer ready to aid any who needed him. Charles Edward Roberts had zest for life and a twinkle in his eye. His wife of nearly eighteen years Alice Roberts calls him the ultimate people person with a generosity that was unmatched incredibly generous. Giving selfless empathetic person. Rob As everyone called him had a knack for making people feel safe. A perfect fit for his job as a police officer for the last twenty years in Glen Ridge New Jersey. There was nothing rob. Wouldn't do for his community with the crossing. Guard calls out sick because many of them are senior citizens. You know he would be the one crossing. The children. Rob Made family priority to the father of three coached. His kids teams and together. They went hiking and fishing to mets games and concerts. This is video of rob teaching his youngest daughter. Natalie to ride a bike. Go not only all by yourself you did it gone Eilly go. He would just just constantly incredibly positive towards everyone. You know you got this. You did it a constant source of encouragement then. In April everything changed. Rob had been self-isolating upstairs in their home. After seven of his coworkers were diagnosed with corona virus. Rob had bad headaches and had lost his appetite and sense of taste but he didn't have any fever still on April twenty first just as the healthcare worker was telling rob over the phone that he had tested positive for the virus. He collapsed and stopped breathing. The healthcare worker on the other end of the line called nine one one and robs fellow officers race to his home. We found him collapsed on the floor. I was frozen on the stairs. And his Co said he has a faint pulse and I think he radioed. Everything's kind of a blur after that but he radioed for backup and he's shortly after he started CPR. And just remember getting my kids to the basement for three weeks. Doctors desperately tried to save rob. His sister also waited for answers. It's IT IS HEART-WRENCHING F. Three children who Absolutely adored and looked up to him and we were It was like we couldn't breathe for three weeks Just waiting for information updates around town residents put up blue hearts to support the officer. They also held a vigil on the Families Front Lawn but rob never regained consciousness the day before he died doctors allowed Alice inside her husband's hospital room. We face times with the children from the bedside on May Tenth Mother's Day. We just basically told him he wasn't alone. We played music forum. We told him it was okay to go. Rob Died may eleventh. He was just forty five years. Old Doctors told the family rob had surprisingly low potassium levels which stopped his heart. His Wife Says Rob's brain never recovered from lack of oxygen. Alice says she and her children are grateful for the time they had with him. Were not angry. Who were just grateful. We just wish we had more time. And you always think you're going to have more time. It's just so quiet without him. It's just it's like an energy has been sucked out and is just a big gaping hole rainy k. c. n. n. West Palm Beach Florida. What a man. What a family. Our thoughts with the entire Roberts family tonight and all those who've been suffering to the coronavirus we'll be right back.

We walk into your back. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to welcoming our next guest Who recently Retired as executive editor and Vice President of the Sun Herald in Biloxi Mississippi where his newspaper was awarded the two thousand six Pulitzer Prize gold medal given for public service. There's no bigger honor for their coverage of Katrina. He's also served as the editor of the Shreveport Journal the daily Oklahoman in the mobile register and perhaps most important. He's spent thirteen months serving this nation during the Vietnam War as a marine and He's also the only guests in the history of this program that I have worked for twice in my career and he is a distinguished a journalist and a and a friend in Stanton. Thank you so much for being with us this afternoon. Good afternoon Paul. And not only are you a my former boss We had a conversation earlier. And you helped me more than you'll ever know we. We were talking about This crisis that we're all going through And what we are trying to do here and I can't thank you enough for For sharing some wisdom and I hope you'll share some with our audience as well. Well I'll be happy to and I think You know you precipitated. The conversation by reaching out to Your listeners and and You know in a way that I think was Very inviting to say that You know it's not necessarily business as usual on the sports talk front that we don't have live sports to talk about doesn't mean we couldn't talk forever about Things that are are precious to us and in that arena. But there's also something else going on that I think you're particularly Well equipped to help guide a conversation. They've if that's what your listeners wants to do because the response that I gave to to Europe he'll was to say You know that the genius of the Finebaum show. Is that your listeners. Take you where their hearts lead and therefore let them lead and I believe that While you know you can be a tough guy. Sometimes I think you are especially empathetic to your audience at times when That sort of voice needs to be heard. I specifically mentioned the time of the Or if a Tornado. Tuscaloosa that you helped not only Let the voice of Tuscaloosa and the people and the fame that they were feeling her to the national audience at a time when they were being torn in other directions by big news events that you stood as an advocate for them and I think There's at least a good possibility that If you reach out to to your audience now and ask them to be part of the National Conversation About. How can we all sort of get together? We're It's not a normal time. And so let's have a shared experience of of what we're feeling and what Quite some of the things that we can do maybe craven headwork of of action to To be of use I've seen you know stories. Where where some some groups Are Making mask or whatever it is. It may be something well beyond my ability to to imagine right now but I met somebody out there listening in Carolina or Connecticut or in Alabama Has something to share with all of us about the what what's happening and and how we might be abuse talking to Stanton instead. I WANNA I WANNA take you back to a time when you were the editor As I mentioned in Biloxi while Katrina was going on. And if you were watching on television every night You saw Anderson Cooper and others Live from New Orleans and a lot of us We read but we really weren't Acutely aware what was going on in your community which was absolutely wiped out. And I want you to tell the story about Your advocacy for that community and how would ultimately didn't make a big difference. Well we really understood that our have a story to tell that was beyond anything that most people could could comprehend. We lost sixty five thousand homes and businesses people without power You know the the the things in life that you look forward to and enjoy You can watch TV here because there was. There was no electricity. They were not the to watch for the most part and so You know the paper had a a pretty unique role at that time and The the people that the journalists recognize it was a good story here and When after Katrina passed you know they saw the debris line and realized that this place was smashed in and wouldn't be Well for a good long time but as soon as the levee broke and And THE ORLEANS. We said the giant sucking sound her on the Mississippi Coast was the National Press. Heading there for what was understandably You know a story that was as big as it gets. But in the course of that The plight of the people in Mississippi got Got Lost so We recognize it both. We had to tell a story. We had to make sure that our people heard the story. And and we Did Not miss a day of print. Which is you know. We're is a particular point of pride for our staff But also We recognize we were telling the story of Mississippi Story Online which was somewhat new at the time so we worked hard to tell the story elsewhere but we delivered a paper to people that were literally trying to stand up out of the debris sale In any event we also felt that we had a role to advocate for this place to make sure that we got an attention. Enough attention For Our story and and we did that with a front page editorial among many other things that said that talked about the invisible coast even though Mississippi was suffering similarly to the New Orleans. Story wasn't being bird so the consequence of that was that we weren't getting the kind of aid and support from the government is for one and I think that That voice ultimately was heard but we also Recognized and I've heard this today and listening to some of your listeners who who have called in that they want to To participate and be heard and they've got opinions that they feel are valuable and need to be known so we you know. We think there's something to be done in that regard that will Will help United States and and I guess one of the things in talking to you. I'll come back and talk about how we we did that. We tried to balance the aspect of Not causing people to feel worse about their plight then perhaps they should but to encourage and To bring to their attention inspiring stories. That were happening all around us as well as the as the pain. The suffering the debt so One day maybe two days after the storm they was a decision that we had to make because we had to fantastic photographs one. They were beginning to bring the bodies out of debris and Black Sea and it. Was you know a picture that really told the story? It was a very somber picture but it was a group of firemen that had a piece of plastic that was burying the remains of someone that they had just removed from from the debris. And it was it was back lit. The Sun was coming through it and it was a very evocative picture of that moment but at the same time there was A picture of a young man and his mother he had had left the Lexi before the storm had hit and then he had come back urgently was trying to find his mother. The House was gone and somehow they got together on the beach and we had a photographer that was nearby and recognize what was going on and they embraced on the beach. And you could see you could look down the Lexi beach and sea miles of what had once been in our city and They were standing there in a moment of joy and and love and that embraced told that story very well. So you know you could say well. They're bringing the bodies out and the body cast becoming known. That's a big part of our store here but the headline was Hope amid ruin and so I think that's maybe what we all are searching for right now. There's a lot of things that concern us and we don't want to be too frightened about it but we you know we realized what what experts are telling us and when we listen to them we know that the They're concerned at a very high level. When when Dr File? She speaks with with urgency. About what we need to do as citizens to to help make this You know to reduce The the pain that's about to be visited on us so in any event. I think you're a very good facilitator of those kind of conversations and we could somehow. I'm not necessarily encouraged to believe it's going to be one hundred percent but try to ring with our political disagree months out of the conversation and find some sort of common ground that we can work together on Intel stories of inspiration. And you know what we're doing. How are we engaging our children and grandchildren and in the story and You know rather than just sitting our houses in the NBA fearful of. What can we do to to help others? Even in a You know quarantines like circumstance. Maybe I wanted to follow up on that now. I agree with you on the political aspect. But you have served as an editor in in Louisiana Mississippi and Alabama where we all know how politics is viewed. But how how do you convince a lot of doubters out there or can you? Or maybe you shouldn't even attempt to that this is real. This isn't Some minor event that That is being used as a political tool. Well I you know one thing I would say I. I wouldn't try to do that because I think it's You know your own purposes and and one of you would be called into question. I don't think people could would believe that you know you were the genuine arbiter of fairness because unfortunately we have sort of fallen into a tribal existence. Now where it's it's all about my group versus the other group and that's why I think you know I remember the moment is is unfortunately most Americans do after nine eleven when it truly seemed that we achieved the moment. Where all of those you know the baggage of of Partisanship sort of wilted away for awhile. And we found ourselves together and our hearts were just You know we were hurt but but patriotism and it's best form came to the fore and people were doing things together. That were were heartening to both there by you know. In this case I hope and of course we're in a political season as well so it makes it difficult but I would say you know the thing that to me You know may have have a role in that is The president and his Supporters seem to be saying pretty much what others are saying and and they're trying to to pull the thing together as well as Those on the other side so it seems to me that there is a more or less an agreement about the seriousness of the matter and the scientists are certainly Saying that the medical Folks are saying that so you know I'm i. I guess I grew up in age where both I mock consider myself a person of great faith but I think you know science and faith can can meet the common ground. And that's what What I believe should be happening now and I. I wish that everybody would say that. I want to see you. Know the peaches people frolicking on the beaches or doing something else. It it it makes me wonder what it takes to get everybody's attention on a matter of such gravity. Fantastic words from Stan tighter. Who KNOWS All about this from his own personal experience as an editor and certainly his service to. This country Stan thank you. You've you've helped me such today and I know the audience has benefited greatly and Please stay in touch. Thank you very very much for your time. Thank you I appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. Thank you very much Stan. Tighter distinguished journalists of many many years of part of the the editor of the Pulitzer Prize winning team that that helped get the Ba- lexi Gulfport area through one of the worst times while so many people were looking to the south rightfully so Katrina did such damage to New Orleans equal damage to the Mississippi Gulf coast. We will take a short break and resume your phone calls here and Good time to get in eight five to four two seven two eight five you listening to the Paul Finebaum. Show podcast. Welcome back. What a song. Let's give accidentally calls? Richard Starts US off next from Gulf shores. Richard thank you good afternoon. Hey Richard Okay. We'll try somebody else. I'm an you are next up on the hit parade. You know Paul when you go to the phone and say Richard. You're next Richard Spice Ahead Paul how you doing. Thanks for taking my call so I guess I'll say that think it's taking my call. I'm glad you called. You Know Paul. The one thing I recognized about this show years and years ago. You can insert any ban. But there's always a guy in the background that you notice. But you don't notice it. The Beatles with George Martin you would equate to a George Martin Kinda guy but yet as talented this all for those guys. 'cause you you know when to sit back and to things and I tell you if you had the the the briefcase with the nuclear button you know when to push the hell out of it and you know when just casually leave it alone and not worry I mean you demand I was listening to jeff talk a little while ago and he was talking about. I might be jealous because Jim was complimenting. You know the biggest compliment that this show has ever given me was when you said I was part of the Mercury South and I've always taken that with a with pride because that means kind of their in the guts of the beginning of it all and And this pitchers Kinda prove that. I'm the longest continuous car. You're not thinking of me. Pretty well and The one thing that a couple of things that I do not live within my life. Jealousy and animosity revenge type things that just don't concern me and Everybody on this on this program is very unique and we said time and time again. Jim Greatest caller and I say that not that he's got great calls but he tends to move the needle and he makes people think he makes people respond in some people give accused of responding too much to Jim like myself and made squirrel. But that's because Jim Fascinates and there's never been a guy that could come on this program and say things Jim does and take a lot of Texas tests and pass it no one none of it's true absolutely none of it's true but I'm telling you he would pass every one of those because he believes that stuff and how many times have we heard. Jim Come on here when somebody was complimenting him and get in on the phone call and do exactly what he did with Jeffrey of the day. Jeff is the next block listener. That's fixing to me gyms rats and and that's great because Jessica caller and Jeff brings a lot to the table. So does Jim so the Squirrel so does the Greg. Sodas a lot of people. But I've always. I've always loved the show because this this show as an emotional roller coaster ride. We've been through every emotion possible on this program. I believe when you think so. Yeah I think by now I mean this completes the circle sadly it certainly does because this is where we've never been before and I heard Jim's called today and he was asking you some questions and the thing that that guy from Jim's call was he didn't WanNa talk to you at all every time you tried to say something he said you was. You was talking over him but Jim just call. He wanted to call in and complain. And that was basically it. And and in in Alabama today they said all the restaurants had no nobody inside the restaurants. If you won't food you gotTa take it and leave and and you know if that's the way it is that's the way it is and I've got no complaints with that because this is where the government and the the medical people like you ask all I mean we just got trust all this with. We believe it or not. It doesn't matter this is what it is. Thanks and we'll survive through it and yesterday when I was talking about you being guy for this terms you're not cookie cutter because you have a gift that so many others don't and you created that elbow room but swinging you're damn elbows and and I know you're starting down better jobs or good jobs. Let me say that. And that's because you know what you're doing and you believe what you're doing and belief is in the pudding today right today. Thank you for taking my call. Thank you very much. I appreciate that Let's think we do have Richard now back from Gulf shores. Richard Thank you very much. Thank you I just It's sitting there listening to Steve kind of and I and I'm thinking well you know. Maybe my troubles are not so bad. I was a athlete when I was in high school. And it's been about fifty five six seven years and the further away. It gets the better athlete. I bet you were an but why I got interested. And because it's an athletic event or than real job and so I got the message today at about three o'clock in the afternoon that We were told to leave the We had we couldn't serve food and we couldn't serve beverages and no one could eat inside the restaurants and it was really a a shocker. Especially since I've got a couple of I every skews me. I think I'm a little emotional I've got a couple of restaurants that we have been listening for the last three or four days and every day that would be another something thrown at us and we have Emptied the restaurant. We've now. We have an idiot. We've lowered the seating capacity to less than fifty percent. We've got people that are just all over here trying to eat. None of them are coughing. But I don't know anything except that Is Very tough to be shut down and I was listening to what it's GonNa take. We've gotta be shut down there for three weeks at the end of three weeks are just gonNa be pieces of restaurants to put back together. It's just very different. Let me ask you as a as a small business owner Richard I think I know the answer. But what does it mean to have to shut down for that period of time or longer? Well I've got people that have worked for me for a long time but it means that the people are going to have to scatter you've got a twenty percent of the people are really in and out work. Different places But when you get an orchestra and orchestras working great. And let's go to Beta Ron player. And the based on player doesn't know is Whatever from third base in it ruins the whole thing. So it's it's like an orchestra when you go into a restaurant and it's Jenin is just really sure a great thing to watch and it makes everything good and and it it And I would think Because certainly the service industry is so hard to get good people and when you have great people It makes me WANNA come back and it's a killer when you have you know what I'm not people I just left. And They WanNa know what's GonNa Happen Tomorrow and I tell them I really don't know we're going to go to a takeout Delivery that I have about as much as the man in so I just don't really know what to do but I guess we're We're going to do what we have to do. But I think it might be painful for a whole lot of people that really Have been coming to work and doing their jobs. And now It's not political. It's not political with me at all. It's just that I just the athlete in me as a bad to say. Wow what anymore. We're going do what am I going to do because I It's it's been a tough year and here we go. That's just the way it is boy. Feel better if I could get some Cheese WITH THIS WINE. I'd be a high well. What you what you have done here is is you brought some reality to the situation is one thing to read the news. It's another thing to feel it an inexperienced. And you've done that and I thank you very much for that. I know of no words matter right now but I think you have. You have brought this home though. Well my mother always said. Don't worry about nothing comes ain't nothing going workout. No Way Hell. I was in you down here. One time about thirty five years ago you were standing there. Speaking and people wanted to ask you a question and you said well. I know y'all are not going to have me back so I'm GonNa go ahead and you were right. We didn't like the answer in you. Don't come back nope that's yeah. I mean. There was a long period of time in my career. I I knew I could speak Honestly every group. I went to because I knew there was no chance of a return engagement so I do regret that a little bit now because I'm sure I missed a meeting. A lot of people like you but I I do remember the group. You're talking about. Yeah that was fun. That was what you did. Take the check. I cashed fat quickly to. That was a good well anyway. Well Richard our best to you and I. I do hope you'll stay in touch and because I think it helps to hear that and it and it doesn't make you feel any better or Help Save what you're trying to preserve but it does at least make it real. Be well Richard. Thank you very much. Thank you fantastic Call their sad story though unfortunately too many of them. We'll be right back. You're listening to the Paul Finebaum. Show podcast comeback. Glad you're with us as We are Harking on Thursday night for stay spring. What a difference. A week makes Just Day a week ago the NCW basketball tournament was cancelled. And everything else. Since then We had a caller earlier today in some of the Swedish are going through or organically and because we've never been there before Talking a lot about Disappointment and and and and the confusion we're all experiencing an an man named cody called in. I would like to share the call with you for those who missed it. Earlier is is going to be real. Quick it's about this virus and it's about for the younger generation I'm twenty eight years old. I'll I love to have a good time. I love to go to the beach. I love go late. I loved Gold Bar. I like the club. I like to go all over the place man but you know what I'm GonNa leave my house. I ain't GonNa go anywhere and the reason being is you can't just think about yourself in this situation you gotta think about others and I'M GONNA Prentice Electricity of been doing it for about five years and my lead guy that I work under an electrician. He's sixty three years old smoked about a pack a day. So what happens if I go to the beach the Panama City this weekend like I'd love to I probably would be was this and I go and I catch this virus and I come back to work and I've passed this onto him. You know I'll be fine. The experts telling me at twenty eight years old. If I call this I got a ninety nine point. Eight percent chance of being perfectly. Fine so what should I be afraid of right? How well do you think? I'm GonNa Sleep at night if I come back to work because I have to work. I can't stay home from work. I'm single at twenty eight years old and I have to make every paycheck. I think I'm GonNa Sleep night if the guy that's taught me everything. I know about what I used to make. A living is in the ground now because my own selfishness and stupid people gotta think about others as well think about your parents. Think about your grandparents. Think about the older generation. Think about your neighbor. Now's not the time to be thinking about what you WanNa do. What you need to do for yourself. I have nothing to be afraid of. I'm not scared of this virus at all but I'm not going to go and get it because I'm not gonNA take the risk of passing it on to somebody that it can be lethal threat to. Everybody needs to think about it in that manner and I think if you do think about it. That matters young person. Maybe it'll bring a little bit more light to the situation. Make you think about the health of others. A little bit more than later today Caller cody on this program. Let's get back to the calls and Brian is up next in Nashville. Brian Thank you. Hey Paul how are you today? Thanks for taking my call. You Bet did a loss inside calls. I WanNa just check in with you. See how you're doing. We're doing great Bryan and I. I think everyone As you have heard and listened to is going through this in a different way but The better question is how are you doing? I'm doing okay my life. We thought we thought she was going to be Like shortened or in terms of ours and whatnot and then She works at the mall here here locally and they decided that they would close until April the third and so she's She's actually been fortunate. Enough to the mall is going to help In regards to the financial part of that and with me being on the analysis list I pretty much I went. I wish that basketball game the Vanderbilt South Carolina Game On that Saturday and wound up okay with that but since then. I'm the only time I've been out as last Friday. I went I went and did my taxes and pretty much other than that. My wife kind of been my legs in regards to getting anything we need and and that type of thing. I'm I'm I'm laying low I work for I work with giving support group out of Lowell. And they've pretty much encouraged anybody. That's either had a transplant or in the process of getting one just to say At home and kind of remove yourself from everything So we're definitely filing those those orders. Why I'm really glad to hear that. Brian I wondered about you because I didn't know what What effect this is having on? Somebody that The needs the healthcare system very badly. Yeah on twitter. Today I saw that For the life of living donors They've kind of suspended testing right now for living donors then and not not all transplant centers. But a lot of them have suspended testing for living donors. But what I'm doing I never really used twitter until since. She's my flyer that one day and I've I've made a distance flyers For 'cause I got back in. December became advocate listed at the University of Cincinnati. As well so. I made a flyer for that so being reaching out to people in the sports industry and also horse racing and just putting the word out and that I've had a lot of tweets and I'm I'm just You know I maintain maintaining positive strengthen. It's I think it's just important. We all live day to day. Well Bryan thank you And you'd be well my friend and you stay in touch with us Police thank you so much for calling. Jason is up next Mississippi. Hello Jason How are you doing doing all right? I am thank you for calling good. Good Yeah I got a well number one. I just want to comment on that cody. He he's right. All of us have our own way of Doing our part to keep you know the people that can get affected by this safe work in the medical field and my wife does too so We JUST WANNA keep everybody say but The the reason I'm calling is Do everything with the corona If I'm right some of the seniors and stuff is eligible for another year that will that affect recruiting for the next year and some sports. Well what we're talking about. There is the spring the Spring Sports I don't think it's going to have any effect on anything else I mean I don't know the numbers game and you know first of all. I think it's probably too early to know whether How many people will will will take them up on it but I I think young people right now if you're a senior or about to finish Ray eligibility I'm sure you're somewhat Bewildered Oh yeah no doubt no doubt. Yeah. I'm a big Michigan State Fan Love Baseball and basketball and I just know their seasons were ended. You know short and I didn't know if they were going to give the seniors you know another year and then would that is you know. I was just won't know if that would impact recruiting for the next year because some of the ones that would go on to the next level would still be there if they choose to be and I just didn't know if it would make room for high school upcoming players to get recruited. Well it's a question I'll see if I can get an answer for a thank. You very much really appreciate it or heading to a break back with much. You're listening to the Paul Finebaum show podcast. We welcome you back. In our little world of sports there has not been a lot of news today. University of Alabama. Shut the campus down. Pretty well ended any hopes and there was a little bit not much of a of getting anything done in relation to spring practice I don't see any Any campus opening again. And I think we're just GONNA keep on with Sports standpoint At least in college sports to have very little substantive news The spring has gone You know we'll start looking more ahead in terms of the the the summer catch a calendar. Which is there isn't much really really once you get past Memorial Day other than the College World Series. Which we know is gone. The next event is mid July. Which is SEC media days? Which the commissioner said yesterday is still on the books and there's no reason for it not to be on the books but there's also no reason to have any confidence that we're going to get to it so there's just no way of knowing is what. I'm trying to say it. I know I know. There's a lot of very specific questions but there are no no real answers and I say that because I thought we had a neil pain was on earlier. He's a he's a writer for five thirty eight and I thought he had a really chilling comment. that That I've heard but not really thought about very much. He said that in New York where he he lives the prediction. And that's all it is calculation that the peak of this will occur on May first So if that is the they're using models that That overlap were overlay. What they've seen in China and other places so if that happens then how much time after that is there for things to get to a point where some semblance of normalcy occurs. I thought it was really interesting. That in China Were this was such a a raging. Wuhan they are now returning to some normalcy apple. Stores are opening The Chinese Basketball League is returning. But it's hard to really a target really get any Any clarity and by the way. There's that's not really the most important issue. I don't want anyone to misunderstanding. I thought that last caller From re think his name was Richard. It really got to me. I mean here's a guy who runs a successful business. I think based on what he said a couple of them and he's been shut down and you say to yourself. Well it's only four. Maybe a couple of weeks. Well have you had any of you. I haven't done about the way I'm just asking. The question is how many of you ever run a small business in brought in any revenues for a couple of weeks. It's it it's it's it's heartbreaking to hear that top story and we would encourage you tomorrow of both positive and negative thoughts stand. Tanner may one of the best points of the day. We need to hear some good stories to. We need to hear how people are helping other other people I it can't be all doom and gloom. It's been a good show. Thanks for being with us. We we needed it. We'll do it again tomorrow. Have a nice evening. Thank you for listening to the Paul Finebaum. Show podcast the Paul Finebaum. Show Airs Weekdays on the SEC network beginning at three eastern.

Staley lives in southern Alabama. She works as a waiter at a restaurant in Gulf shores right on the beach. Well, she used to work there. Anyway, I usually would make anywhere between. Oh. Like five in eight or nine hundred dollars a week. It was enough to cover her expenses rent food not just for her but also for her two kids a fifteen year old and her two year old son, it was tight but it worked. Then came covert. Staley became one of the more than eleven million American women who lost their jobs in the start of this pandemic a restaurant reopened for a bit. Then Hurricane Sally shut it down in September. Now, she's back to looking for work work in a service industry that is still devastated. Affordable childcare is hard to come by and the stalemate in Washington means there is no guarantee of any extra stimulus coming her way. Jennifer Staley is, stuck. I, really hate asking for help. But I don't have any food and I don't have any. pull ups for him and I don't. I just don't have anything and One of my managers from work went piggly-wiggly and got me groceries. And I ran around after the hurricane came through picked up Murray's and I'm going to forward them for the next time I might not have money. So I've gotten help. But. I've had to really I've had to beg for help and it it sucks. Consider this. More women than men lost their jobs in this pandemic, our economy millions more what if the recovery ends up unequal to?

It's been six months now since the unemployment rate peaked back in April, people are starting to get back to work some jobs are coming back, Valerie Wilson. Is An economist at the Economic Policy Institute, a nonpartisan think tank in Washington. DC. She starting to see some trends as we have continued on. It has become clearer and clearer that the recovery from this recession will not be nearly as uniform in the federal jobs report for. September. There was one stat that caught Wilson's I. The number of people who left the labor force. So the way that we measure unemployment in this country, the unemployment rate only considers people who report they have actively search for a job in the last four weeks. That means if you're not actively searching for a job, you may still be unemployed, but you're not counted that way in government statistics and a disproportionate number of those people. Are. Women. In September alone more than a million American stop looking for work eighty percent of them were women women especially, women of color are overrepresented in jobs that have been hit hardest by coalpit servers, housekeepers, retail workers, that kind of thing and Wilson says childcare has gotten harder. A lot of schools and childcare centers are still closed. So many women are faced with a set of choices that are all bad. Do you go? To work and expose yourself to the virus but continue to bring an income. Do you not go to work you know have more protection from the virus but not have the income for women in particular who are single heads of households with minor children in school, they're having to make choices about childcare. At the same time they're having to make decisions concerning the economic security of their houses as well as the health of their households. There was another striking part about that huge number of women who left the workforce last month. Of the eight hundred and sixty, five, thousand. More than three, hundred, thousand of them were Latina. So whereas white women may have been a more likely to retain employment because they had jobs that they can do from home of women were employed in jobs that they were not able to do remotely. That's Valerie Wilson of the Economic Policy Institute. In. Peers Briana. Scott spent the week speaking to Latinas around the country asking about how they're making it work. warned not. It definitely wasn't a choice for Celeste Selwyn to step away from work earlier this year. So fifty one she lives in Santa Rosa California she's worked as a social worker for eight years working with kids and young adults started pandemic solving tried to keep working fulltime was all eighty five of her usual clients. But are some school closed issue she had to take over watching him and teaching him. She's a single mother. Her son is twelve years old and he has autism. So He needs a lot of extra help. He was having severe behaviors like leaving the house was flooding in the bathroom broke the sink it's not that he means to do it. Selwyn son needs constant supervision and help with things like going to the bathroom in normally he'd be in school all day getting help with speech therapy in reading and keeping himself calm. But for Selwyn having to do all that alone was overwhelming. It was really hard and I was really at my breaking point in March. where I I didn't think that I could continue. Continue going on. Trying to care for him. And being like all these emails and phone calls from work, I couldn't even shower. So she tried working part time for a while but without the medical benefits that come with working full-time hours, someone would have had to pay a couple of hundred bucks for a son's medication every month. So she went back to working fulltime in July she packs it all into her mornings. Now when her son is at his comments instead of later in the day, long as my child doesn't go hungry. Am I bills are paid that we keep the lights on. I mean it's a struggle. But, you know as women of color, we make things work the other primary factor in why so many Latinas have lost their jobs or dropped out of the labor force is what's called occupational segregation in other words how Latinas are overrepresented an industry industries like restaurants, service hotels, and housekeeping. By April seventy two percent of domestic workers report they were out of work according to a study done by the national, domestic? Workers. Alliance. Many of them are still without a steady job like, Rosanna a Rubio, she's fifty two years old originally from oral y she came to the US about twenty years ago illegally in nationals the Miami where she cleaned houses and warehouses host a GonNa. Comment soil up on the Mir in command shot as at the beginning of the pandemic, she lost most of her cleaning jobs. Now when she can find work, she says, she can bring it about fifteen hundred dollars a month, but her rent is a thousand dollars. So she slept with just a few hundred bucks most months for everything else when she's not able to find work, she's had to get help from her nineteen year old son or from a charity fund. And those Komo Massa. Baynes we need are contrary informatics audio. She says, she's worried about catching Kobe because she's hanging on your before in the cleaning products she uses sometimes make it harder for her to breathe. It's a bind, her job might get sick, but she doesn't have healthcare. So she need that income from work to pay for medical bills. She scared, but she says you just have to keep going. On like a task traffic Komo beneath a moment. Kick. Says that when immigrants face a pandemic, those without documents suffered the most especially domestic workers. While other women could be helped by second run a stimulus tracks. Idaho is an eligible to receive one for now she says. She's just trying to work as much as she can save money and prepare like she would for hurricane. NPR's Briana Scott. Victoria David CESCO. Soto hear stories like all of these and she worries big time. She's a public policy expert at the University of Texas and she tells me that without any helper changed the hardships facing women like the three we've heard about may not stop with having to go part time. We're probably also going to see a lot of women. Spiraling down and it pains me to say this, you know having to move in with relatives. Probably, this is going to be a cause of potential. Homelessness among women. So I think that if we don't see something happen in terms of of a real solution, we're GONNA see real pain and suffering in your view what's needed to right the ship? I. Mean. Is it about another stimulus package? A stimulus package is important, but we're talking about structural change here. The United States comparatively speaking it's really embarrassing what our childcare system looks like. We have this patchwork system where you have had start, which is amazing but had start only serves about seven to thirteen percent of those families who need it we have the the credits that help higher income families. The fat only covers about a quarter of the childcare costs. So we need to re imagine what a childcare system in an industrialized nation like the United States looks like most other of our peer countries have universal pre K for universal pre-k three. A lot more supports in terms of child care we we need to step it up. What might the lasting impact be especially on those communities that were hit the hardest rate had the largest numbers of job loss. Right. So if we don't see. Structural change not just sending out a check a check his good to to tied one over but more meaningful structural change. We're going to see the inequalities that we're presence doing right now only widen and at the same time set women further back we've seen women slowly, but surely make gains in terms of closing the pay gap. It's still a a yawning divide, but we are closing as we're increasing our. Education, as we're getting more into the stem fields, but without the structural supports of childcare and also targeted female workforce training because the other piece of this is that we know that women are over represented in the jobs that are low wage low skill that are the most easily automated. So if we're not retooling are women and getting our young girls in school ready to engage in the fourth industrial revolution. Women are danger of falling behind. Victoria. Day.

You know it next year is thirty six. The thing what was that mean you're going to be on the wrong side of the thirty. Good news is I look like I still look like twenty nine ish thirty. I feel like I can pass for that. So that carded every once in a while. I think he'll look Sarah's age. Yeah. That's twenty eight. Yeah. But Sarah, looks like she's nineteen totally right. Yeah. She does, you know, I could just turn this around on you right now. What do you mean? Did you have a birthday party? Yes, I did. I was my invite. Oh, no. Yeah. No, it's, it's not like that. Okay. So. Let me explain it to you. It was obviously a radio DJ since I was sixteen years old. And my first music festival that I ever covered as a professional radio DJ was called hang out fast, and it's in Gulf shores, Alabama. So it's like a seven hour drive from Nashville to Gulf shores, Alabama. And it's on the beach. It's really cool. It is the first one I ever did. If you go YouTube, like me and hang out and like musicians, you can see some my first interviews as so bad, though, worst interview ever. So nervous give verging something specific Annette yet, like I remember like. You know, when when, when, like the TSA person is, like, thanks so much. Have a great flight. And you're like you to like, oh, yeah, you're not going to go I was doing stuff like that. Whereas responding to, like, what the what the artists were saying, and it was making zero sense, and everyone just like okay, so anyways, that was my first the first, and then, then I went on to cover bonnaroo, and could Chela and freaking lollapalooza, all of them. But my first one was was hang out fast and my favorite moment of that. First one was that my birthday fell on the Sunday when it ended and they found out that it was my birthday and this, you need to remember it was a pre small festival the time, and the roots like Fallon's band, but like the roots are their own thing anyways. This is long before. Fallon had his own late night, talk show. The roots had found that as my birthday, and they ran off stage and house at backstage VIP drinking for my birthday, and they had squirt guns, and they just shot. They were all shooting me, wis, squirt, guns, and am I it was like my twenty whatever twenty third birthday and I was just getting drenched, by the roots. And I was like. So I vowed I'd always go back. So I've, I've never missed the hang out fast. I love that. But here's the thing, it's also my like I've college friends that have like houses down in Gulf shores and mobile and stuff. So, like we go down there and fish and go crabbing and it's like a really fun. So there is waiting to your invites because like the house that I stay at is just like my old college buddies. The I thought I was something in town. No, no fun dinner. Oh, no. I didn't do anything I left town. But the here's the thing there is some serious political dealings right now in Alabama. Oh, my okay Riddick quickly. Yeah. I watched the bachelorette. Oh you did. I'm and I remember like years ago when I would watch Miss Universe, and miss USA, Alabama was always the prettiest girls, and I was watching the bachelorette and Hannes from from two friends, and they were on at I was like, oh my gosh, like Alabama you go elevator except right now. My gosh, yeah that's that's horrible. And I didn't even think about that. It was just like I'm going to hang out fest night. Got there. And I was like I posted like, you know, like we were side stage like Jim not to sir sly, and someone's like you shouldn't be there, because Alabama, and I was like, okay. Oh, I didn't even think about that. And I'm sorry. It's just like this your life. People are so annoying. Wing. I mean you're going to condemn you for anything you do. Yeah. I know you can't win on that in that front. But and I also like I'm somewhat sympathetic to people being upset that I'm going there. But I didn't think about it in those terms I thought about it in. This is a fun birthday party and I've done it for a long time. So anyone who was upset at me just understand where I'm coming from. So, and I think if people understand that then they will be as mad, but also women your body you make decisions men should have no business in telling you what to do totally agree with that. And that's the end of that conversation, let's get in and out of that one as quickly as possible. So. So help more states don't follow the I know it's kind of scary. Ethic? So, yeah, what's going on with you? Wait. Would you got for your birthday? What was the best president? Minds in the mail. Visit what did I guess, Sarah address after? Yeah. Yeah. Syra got me, like, like, okay, so she got me a real cool. Like, what is it velvet jacket because I've been saying that, like, I don't bring it on the red carpet like I should like she's got a whole team of people making it. So when she goes down the red carpet, everyone's excited, and then I show up in my men's warehouse suit in their dislike why why I've been saying consciously been like I need to get some cool, freaking outfits, you know, for the red carpet, and I was like you know what I wanna do. I wanna look like everyone in Harry Potter looks like I know like old velvet suits, and like very dignified, smoking, jackets xactly, and I think I said it drunkenly, and she was like she went with it. I've got it and I got a fantastic. He gave it to me when I was like drunk, you know, like midnight or whatever we excited. So I like put it on like with my bathing suit is a great big. Of me just with like this, like, velvet smoking jacket and a bathing suit. So, you know, watch out red carpet because I'm coming for ya. She also got some golf lessons which I'm excited about, oh my that's, that's a really good out of the box gift. Yeah. So I don't know. Is that the saying out of the box thinking outside the box? I think so. Yeah, that one can pass. So what did you do for my birthday? What day? Was it last Thursday? Okay, Thursday, doing fun. I'm no. Max had to go back to the hospital on Wednesday still throwing a blood, I'm no. He stopped eating and Friday, I had a Louis Vuitton event that I couldn't go to because stayed with max on acceptable house at a really good outfit. I bet. And omega Saturday. I made it pass the four five which I rarely do if it's a day off. And so one to Beverly Hills and had brunch with my two best friends who are they Gina and Halley? And it was so lovely shower or anything. No, actually, gene is on it. Okay. Yeah. Excited we're getting down to crunch time bro, like the show is about to happen. Yeah. You freaking out why kind of I've been like doing press interviews. Yeah. And like they're talking to like the cast individually and so like the questions like God, I wonder what they said for this, and I always ask, I'll be like, what are we to say? Yeah. It's starting to get scary. It's not feeling like we're all together not feeling like a cast right now. It's kind of feeling like everyone. It's like hunger games. Everyone's like on their tree, stump Whitten for the horn blow. Yeah. So bitter run get your weapon girl. But what it so here's a thing like every time I've ever been on a rally to each other. It's always like one scandal, one thing. And then you just get questions about that, like, basically the entire time. So like what is the question you, you're getting right now? It's not that exciting. It's just how is it different than the original? They're not even doing, like, how are things with you and your brother? They're not allowed to anymore. How really yeah. Okay. So we yeah. We won't be in the same room. I don't know how we're going to go to New York. So you, you started doing press. Are you doing press like in the same room as everybody else? But. So they've had to split the group into two groups. Yeah. And so it was in your group. And with all the boys day said Justin, and Frankie interesting, and then it Spencer, Heidi Adrina Whitney. What do you think they separated from the girls? The boys have my back during the show so hard. I love the I love these three guys so much like I cannot even explain because there's I'm really dramatic. The thing that happens in the series like really bad, and they just like they're like, bodyguards from me. I just absolutely love them because I'm not ever not ever I am in the wrong sometimes. But I'm not in the wrong for most of these scandals and to the boys just like they have my back. I love them. The girls rules are like fair weather, friends, sometimes. You know, I'm and also like when you're on a TV show. I'm not a competitive person, but it like gets to that competitive place where it's like, oh, can you give me your trainers phone number? And then, you know this didn't happen, I'm giving example. And then, you know, your girlfriend is like, oh, I don't feel comfortable sharing my trainer. So it gets. Yeah. I'm not kidding like makeup artists like, Nope. No one wants to like help each other like it's weird. But it's goals I love my girls off camera. Do you ever do that as well? No, every I literally share everything. I don't even have like one makeup, artists that I'm completely loyal to and like they both understand that. Yeah. But I okay. So let me give you an example inland, and I have a jewelry line called me me London. A girl on the show with me named Rosie. She had a jewelry line. So ours is. Manufacturer like the beads are from all over the world like main the islands and they're manufactured in the far east. So Rosie was getting all of her jewellery manufactured in London, which was probably like eight times more than what we're paying I gave Rosie the woman's name, and like number and Email to use her, like that's a competitive jewelry line. Same TV show their friends on, I still was like dude take this will take Jenny. She's great to hook you up. Never even think to me. So I didn't even know that she these girls, they're just rude. So does that make you change the way that you're going to nice going forward? No. Because you get what you give, I'm never going to stop, you know, like a Beatles lyric wanting to help. And yeah. So I didn't even know. That she had taken on Jenny until Jenny, emailed, me, and she was like. I'm doing this order below and I was like so Rosie's contacted you you're, you're working with her. And she's like, yeah. Yeah. So then I saw Rosie we're like at some like Christmas London event, and I was like, hey, so you're using Johnny. And she was like, yes. And I was like, oh, she's on. Yes. Joe my smoking Jaakko. Oh, like you're welcome. Like I really. And I explained that was like, we both have jewelry lines around the same show like you're welcome. And she was like. She farting at this point to know that sir posh like. British posh the boys are so much fun. But I mean I always ask the boys and text the girls. Like would you be upset? If I had my arm around, Frankie or like, you know, they're carrying me. So I check.

Okay. So did you watch the first episode of the bachelor, obviously you did? I haven't seen it yet. I'm sorry. What haven't I was out of town last Monday down? You have Tibo DVR would ho- what year is offering? Two thousand six. Yes. I just haven't tonight. I'm gonna go to catch up with all of it of he had time for game of thrones. Yes, I because I'm ABC don't kill me. But I like game with thrones more than like the bachelorette. I think that's okay. Wait a minute. So Pilates classes morning was very upset about the ending of game of thrones. I don't watch it. Don't like have a spoiler alert. But like were you upset or did you like the finale but very upset? Okay, that's only because people are mad. Okay. So just tell me tell me what happened in the first episode of the bachelorette, okay? So is the best episode. It's everyone getting out of the limo and member migrating onto limo was being drunk the night before. And introducing myself saying, I'm drunk for eight hours, but I don't get hangover. Yeah. Okay. Road work. I who else said that, that happened to them. We're like, oh my gosh. Oh, shayna. Chain on. What, what was the one of the biggest moments that happen in the episode? Okay. This one guy, who's not even like a standup trying to find the photo that I took. Also, watch Tron, Kellyanne Ryan. Okay. So that was kind of a scandal, because Halley shading the bachelorette. That was disgusting. Without one guy wrote on Twitter, what I had no idea. You're talking about. Oh my gosh. So I'm not going to name names, but someone said be careful Kelly, the bachelor pays for pays for your paycheck. And I think that's really unfair because Kelly's men in this business. I mean she was a soap opera star. She's, I mean she's literally like Regis. Now, she's been in this forever. Not for man to like condemn her saying no like this show is what pays you not your hard work. I don't know. I was by as someone who's a part of the bachelor franchise. I would say that it doesn't make any sense to me to talk trash about a fellow ABC show. Like what why would that help anybody anybody's career like if you're all working for ABC and working for Disney, it should all be like, we want everyone to succeed, and like talking about it. I don't think was just a good look on. Like anyone's part. Yeah. I'm you know who did say something really cool. It was Ellen Pompeo. And I've always been indifferent to her. But now I love her from Grey's anatomy. Yes. And most paid actress on the network. Like all time. I'm so bachelor back to that. Yes. I got to watch everyone's entrance. I did not love her dress. I thought she could have done better go. So the one guy the I really like is this guy named Luke p is so weird to these on my season. There was Luke Pell. So there was another Luke p. So when I heard like all the stuff going down, almost like did Luke, Pell disco double dip back into the bachelor world. Apparently, it's a different guy. He didn't make didn't make the bachelor. So like, come on the bachelorette. Yeah. No, no. He was on. He was on the bachelorette. Okay. So what happened? Okay. So he is just like an all of her. He cannot believe his luck that he's here, his sister, his family's like sounds very normal. And just like nor like, not in this reality or like showbiz like no interest in that on his sister signed him up, or mom or whatever, and he like, he can bear the. He's speechless. He's just like you're the most beautiful and it's so true and sincere. And then there's a jerk on it. Who? Has a girlfriend, and he is vile. There's a guy who has a girlfriend, but he is so vile like his responses to when she's like calling him out are like will we broke up, she's like, well, you just texted her before you went in, like you're obviously, if things don't work out with me like you're going to go back to your girlfriend, was, like, no, no, no. She knows that if you choose me, who are broken up, and like he just like that kind of stuff, and like you just hate him the more he talks 'cause he's also so arrogant. And here he is like completely lying, but he's not like giving any. Not apology. But just like an ounce of thought or care. It's just like oh, he's just noted we find much. He's got a girlfriend. I think it was like her two girlfriends. So she had her two friends come out with her, and there were like they had the best job. They were basically spying on her in this ban China, like see wish guy was cool. So anyways when that happened, she was so upset. And she was crying because they were spying on her. No. She loved that because of this guy who came here, and she's all about, you know, don't come here. If it's not for me. So. She's very upset. She goes outside and starts crying and all the guys like guys suck. They're all like sitting there like lose sucks. Like we've lost so much time. Did you get to talk to her? We'll know that guy took like an hour time. And they're all like talk like upset about their time. And here she is by herself outside crying, and like all these douche bags. It's like aren't even realizing wait, so you're not here for her. If you're not chasing, her out like she's. Okay. So why crying you just met this guy, and you got to know that there's going to be a handful of douchebag years hanging out and must just be the pressure of the first night? I nobody seems to me, the crying is a little if this happened like, hey, there's nothing wrong with crying. All right. Wells having eight weeks in that, that makes sense, but the happened the first you just like, literally just met, you and I found it you have a girlfriend, okay later. Get out of here. I mean there. Yeah, because it wasn't even like. She had been talking him all night. I know that's what I'm saying. Like that's a little occupied on the brakes on the waterworks their sister, Kate. So, but I didn't do the episode. So I could be writing in for this. Okay. Okay. So, but Luke p finds her outside, and he comforts her with his great hair. Probably I'm good hair. Yeah does. Yeah. So look at these photos, I took it was just like you took. Yeah. Of the TV screen, 'cause I was going to Instagram it saying, I love them. But then I forgot because I was watching the show scroll through, like he just looks at her with so much. I've seen a rose in her hands. So that means he got the first impression. Yes. And the guys I can't like on a say watching this show like Kelly, Ripa feely, oh. These guys are all douche bags, there is a guy that son himself in a box because he's the box king, he sells boxes. And when she took the rose or something, happened, I told maybe you remember. Something happens. And the Bocskai just goes will, I didn't get any time like this, like something so gross. And you're just like. She just dodge such a bullet like the oh my God. I don't know. I just can I go back to the Kelly Ripa thing, real quick thoughts on it? Okay. Let's yeah. So what her quote was was basically. It's disgusting that thirty women will go and like obsess over one, man like we should be like, we're, we're farther along in society than this. And like this isn't a good thing. That's what my dad said to me. Okay. All well and good and true, but there is also a show called the bachelorette, which is the exact opposite thing, which is thirty dudes fawning over just one woman and not to say that, it's, it's right, but it kind of evens the playing field am I wrong and thinking that. Yeah. I don't. I mean, like okay. Okay. So we're watching the bachelor so long ago is at my parents house, and it was in my early twenties. And my dad said, would you ever gone this? And I was like y'all be the bachelorette and he was like, but you would never go be one of these girls. And I was like God. No, like I'm not competitive. And I would just be like, okay, you have them like it's not worth it. Like my happy ending is somewhere else. And he was like good, because I would rather you never get married than ever feel like you need to fight for guy or you know, go above and beyond, or with a, you have to fight for it, and you have to go above and being on, and you have to work at it is that I'm single I don't know if that's what it is all my God. I was like twenty two and now like I was like yet dad said, never get married. Never do anything for the other partner. No, you didn't save. That. But I, I agree with Keller was original statement. But I in defense of the network, they, I feel like they the, the, the see-saw evens back out when they do it with a bunch of dudes, going after just one woman, I don't know. I think the, the thing in Kelly's quote that just made it a bet over the line for ABC or whoever's mad at her is that she's the word disgusting. But, like nothing in that quote, is like she's just giving her opinion that she thinks girls are all to special to fight over one guy agreed. Right. So I think it's just the word discussing that has really changed that quota something so controversial view. And here's the thing. No one cares A now. Yeah. And also love Kelly Ripa, but also key Kelly gotta know from my own personal happiness. How do you feel about bachelor in paradise because that shows different that's just a bunch of people? Dating a bunch of people. There's not like one after the okay with that because it's like even couples. Yeah. Yeah. I bet she loves that show. Her marks watch have some popcorn and some tacos, do you think that she likes the hills probably not only discussed her? How would that make you feel if she went on the Kellyanne Rivage that shows disgust, I would still up when I was younger like she was my role model. I wanted to be her. You wanted to be a daytime actress, and then yeah. Told you. At Hearn that in to a talk show high, but it tycoon only only she can do it, though. She's, you know Osborne. Tried crash in, like people have tried Kelly, Ripa just wins killed. Yeah. Love her and Ryan. He's so cute over there. They're like best friends. You think so? It's real. Yeah. Definitely because he knows way too much. You know is like her outfits. She knows his outfits shoes. He has at home and Mark. I'm gonna go watch it too much. Mark is like going shopping with Ryan to get Ryan all decked out and cool stuff scrape. Okay. Kelly and Ryan, okay. Yeah. Like them and my dog. And I live in two thousand six. You are a seventy nine year old woman. Oh my God funny. You say that is that is my dream lifestyle. I wanna check into an old person's home right now. Really, you just lay there and they give you food, and you watch TV. It's better than chilling in hospital. If you think about it. If you're in a really luxurious retirement home. You've got a pool tennis. All these nurses saying to be FOX Shaw homes. Are you talking pool? I feel like in retirement homes. I think using a Florida and that just puts people go. And they dislike live, and like the double vista estates. And then there, I'm down you just want to retire. I want someone to take care of me. You do I can on my own. Okay. But like I would love them to feed me just really be lazy, just as lazy, as I can't like literally like soup into your mouth. She I could probably do that. 'cause soup is hot cocoa. I guess just like bringing me a tray like that'd be sick. It's just like being a kid again. When I miss, I'm, you know, when your parents are sick, and they would just feed you and they even if I wasn't sick. Yeah. It'd be like a snack when they pick me up from school. It was just sick. You just want to be way. Waited on hand in a. Yeah. Yes. Okay. Okay. So that took a long time for me to get to what we figured out was that you just see the Butler. Exactly. Oh, southern charm is back. Have you watched that is there a Butler in it? Yes. Okay. Let me know. Speak, a Butler's southern Charles back. You've never seen it. No, I know Chrissy Teigen likes it a lot. So that means it must be funny. So what's the what's the deal with it? Oh my God. It is the best reality show. I think and I've been saying this since it started. It is the number one reality show since the hills like it is, it's got a group of like these young singles, and they all grew up with each other, and their family lines. Some of them are, you know, four father, my forefather built this, and, you know, that kind of stuff. My forefather was Jefferson Davis. Yeah. All related to presidents like somehow and. And it is so good. There's this one guy who's not on it this series. But this is why you need to been jet. This old man named Thomas Ravanell is like in his fifties, like he's an old man starts dating. This girl who was like twenty pather Thomas revenue. He gets pregnant on purpose because he's like, supposedly, the Ravin all family. So important. And, you know, and he's never he's never married. He's an aside a child totally. So I mean he was not into it, but all of a sudden, she gets pregnant, it's really fiery with them like he hooks up with other girls. He just got arrested for like harassing the nanny or something. He's like an alcohol. He's a mess. She was a mess, too, and she was the one that was like having to go to rehab and the baby was taken away from her this all in the show. Okay. And that's only two characters like that's chew customs there's still so many more with all this trauma. So then it's so nasty. They hook up. One more time a few years later, she gets pregnant again, child quite potent for an older gentleman. I'm telling you this show is so good. And then there's that one guy who just wants to be a bachelor forever. I can't think of his name right now. And it's really sad, actually because I've, I reckon, he's like early forties. So this isn't the show, Christly knows best. I've heard that's incredible. Yes, it's insane to, but so where does the southern charm take place on a plantation in Mississippi North Carolina by? For a show that you love a lot us. Have very little facts, South Carolina. I'm dyslexic. Max's, growling out, you. Yeah. Okay. I have to go hostess thing. So I hope a trivia app. I loved your via verse sports said, I don't know if you like sports. So I have to drive an hour away from here to go host it some sorry to leave to the south. Going to. Yes, I'm going to the south cool fun driving. I know not. Little bit south hill, south, I have no clue. Well are gonna watch bachelor tonight. Yes. On watch bats are now I'll have something to say about it next week that chew to catch up on. No, it's going to be a lot one guy jumps, the fence God. Of course. Anyone show up with a band.

Like all the guys are like feeling like Aw. This guy, this guy, I was laughing go walls, I swear by all for one, but the thing was, and then they followed me around that entire night. And so, like every time I talked with her, they'd be in the background speed like did. And she's like this every day, and I was like, yes. We making sweet sweet love.

Sort of trustee played one of the sympathetic rednecks. The Wind Shelton Film. Today's episode is brought to you by James Patterson's latest but it's not a crime novel or Fiction Thriller. It's a nonfiction page. Turner called the Kennedy. Curse. Patterson is an expert thriller writer and so he's able to tell the story of the Kennedy family like never before the Kennedy curse about far more than the JFK assassination. It covers a range of subjects surrounding the family. That helps you see things differently. The Kennedys were always taught to win at all costs. And they did but the costs were unimaginable. Their name synonymous with American royalty their commitment to public services legendary. But for all the successes. The family has been blighted by assassinations. Fatal accidents drug and alcohol abuse and sex scandals. I used to go down the old school rabbit hole of conspiracy theories so I'm happy to get a fresh take on a story like this just following all these conspiracy threads can be a real time. Eater time suck as they say in the current vernacular the Kennedy curses a revealing fascinating account of America's most famous family as told by the world's most trusted story tower in fact. James Patterson is one of the biggest selling writers of all time. His books have sold in excess of three hundred and eighty five million copies worldwide. The Kennedy Curses out now and good bookshops globally and is available to download as an e book and audiobook. Okay so look you guys. I want to address something that I think upset. A couple of people we three right. At least three. I go through stuff in with the shooter would have cutter. Or you're just beating myself up or just getting anxious about everything and freaked out You know not just about the disease about what happens when we get out in my am. I GonNa do this. Am I gonNa do that like you know when my brain runs away with me? There's only a couple of things I can do. There's only a couple of ways to wrangle it back in you. You know when I when I get into the future horror and it's fairly dramatic self talk that is engaging okay to make myself feel better. There's you know in this addressing what I said the other day. I'm done I'm done I'm done. I'm fucking done. It feels good to say that I'm fucking done done with what exactly whatever it is that I think is causing the anxiety work living in this country eating life cats it cetera. It really doesn't mean I'm done it. It's just comforting to me. I'm tr- I'm working on some other ways to deal with it in in in the sort of acceptance realm you know like hey man you know this is what it is right now that that feels okay but like a few seconds later. I'm back to like them fucking out done with this shit fucking done with it. But that's better than I'm GONNA kill myself. I think we've made progress just by me saying I'm done in a general way with most things but the point I'm trying to make to you is clearly. I'm not I'm not done is what I'm saying. Okay I got an email from few people one guy sort of like you know. Go Fuck Yourself. If you're done just do it already. It's not gonNA matter us. That was nice email but this woman Julia subject line. I'm done in quotes. Hey Mark how funny it is to see the mantra of my last few days repeated by my favorite comedian podcast or going live on instagram or actor. Cetera. You and I must have had the same tiffany at the same time about just being done. I'm done worrying. I'm done being anxious. I'm done spinning myself out. No actually Juliette was quite different. I'm done with the things that caused those things. Work love cats life. You seem more together than me. And she writes doesn't mean it actually does a full stop no not really but it helps because it's like I'm holding a stop sign up at my brain and I'm just like stop done. No that's good that's PROACTIV. I've noticed this white dropping anxiety past couple of days as well but whether that's just a cycle and it will be back in force in another couple of days remains to be seen hanging there mark. Thank you can't wait till this is over excited to see what we all look like. Oh my God I'm excited to fucking hug someone. Christ that has been the worst love you Julia thank you. I'm not done. I'm not done joy I'm staying. I'm staying in the saddle. I'm good this one. I don't know if I can read it. But it's sort of it's about Laura Linney Dad. She talked about him difficult person. So I guess I can read this Subject Line Laura Linney. Dad's squashed my creative soul. Hi Mark Listening at this moment of the Laura Linney episode. I was in graduate. Creative Writing Program at University of Pennsylvania in Nineteen Ninety and Romulus. Linney was the writer in residence. My workshop mates responded. Powerfully M- positively to the opening chapter of a novel. I was working on but the acclaimed. Playwright tore it to shreds. The class was stunned and I was crushed in real time. I dropped out of Grad School for two reasons. I still remember that feeling thirty years later. I struggled through lots of depression and OCD and addiction for years as a struggling writer until finally getting sober in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight and then I struggled with depression and OCD for a lot longer after getting sober. But that's another story. I'm coming up on twenty two years of sobriety and a bit congratulations pow. I've been reading my old Manuscripts unpublished novels and screenplays during the pandemic quarantine. Some of my stuff is good. Some of IT IS BAD. Most of it is both anyway. Laura sounds like an amazing person and something about her description of her father soothed my thirty year old artistic injury for this moment anyway. Go figure I've emailed you before I moved albuquerque five years ago and I'm a psychoanalyst out. Here Nice only mildly crushed that you never responded previously kidding. I think thanks for being consistent. Entertaining thought provoking voice in my head and nearby there. You Go David. It's Your Day David. It's your day. It's happening David in Albuquerque. It's happening. I'm glad you landed on your feet after your hurt feelings. I hope that wasn't a straw man. Heartbreak never never goes away. It just never goes away.

Yeah Man I love a hotel motel. Whatever I realized when I was like twenty six and I had only stayed in one hotel ever. Yeah like you've never been away from home now. I've been away from home full time but we were so stupid is like punk kids. We would like asleep in a car or whatever it was and yeah and then get a motel realizing as an adult that like now only costs like forty dollars some places for a cheap one for like like comfort in or pink or something but when we were kids on tour yeah ten dollars between the four of us but instead we car didn't people's houses yes. Hopefully that was. The hope is begging on stage and yeah hey man please help us out. And then he threw on basement for their parents upstairs. Shivering Dude.

Yeah I've opened for Comedians. Ea really got it down packed where they like no all the questions and right buildings for some dudes at that. Take you with them and put you up. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's nice best. It is and then like like who've you open for I opened for Boa Open for Dimitri and Rory and tie glass the Nice Fellas so now let's let's talk about these guys because I know all of them Now somebody like both. I'm sure like you guys get up and eat and hang out a little bit. But when I was opening for him he couldn't talk because he he's about to tape his special and he had lost his voice a while and so he was trying to keep his voice So we would go around town and like I would have to talk for him everywhere. So we'll extra added open open forum at the restaurant and then after the show we talk and hang out but before the show is how many shows you do at that guy like fourteen thought. Yeah and and who is the other bone? And Rory Rory probably have with the right. Yeah we we hung out a lot. Yeah to meet. You probably not so much Dmitri now we would just hang out and green room.

It's gotTa be fun to open. Tied is fucking wild man. He stays up all night talking to people really just like whoever wants to talk to to hang out in the lobby. Idling wilder sad the fine line between like man. That's Kinda sad a little. Yeah well no it would seem I walked. I walked back to the hotel after like visiting friends of mine or something like that and rebound and he would just be sitting in the lobby like talking to at. Oh that's nice. Oh so he's just not necessarily people at the show but not offers around. Yeah just socialize. Yeah lonely guys. Socialize is great. Yeah it was awesome so I appreciate you coming during the plague. Well Yeah not many people willing to make the journey. Even if I guarantee them a clean environment I sprayed down that Mike with the some alcohol. That's not vinegar and that's pretty well. How Hall and there's a hand sanitizers available. I've got rubber gloves. I haven't really been leaving so I mean other than just do little go to the store. Whatever it is but I'm I'm really excited to get to do this so I i. I don't care if I get sick or whatever I'm not I don't WanNa get sick but I'm GonNa get you sick. We're we're we're on top of it. I'm going to have to figure out how to open the door. Like you know the the thing. That's weird is that it's it goes both ways. It's like I'm I'm just as I don't think I have it. But they make you kinda paranoid. Maybe I'd do. It keeps sucking in to see if I can like hold air in my lungs good. Yeah I've been running. I went running yesterday. Good even skating skating. Yeah can't run. Don't got any ligaments in my knees Really I would see these people running and I'm really jealous but you can skate. Yeah Yeah it's like I can choose to do one or the other but apparently running is really bad for my knees so I can skate and I don't have to use both in my knees in the same kind of way. 'cause pushing right one of just holding your foot on the board. Yeah Yeah Yeah. I noticed a little bit skating in the special not much a little bit but it was like. Oh like one little thing. That was fairly complicated. Nfl Do that. Second Nature kind of deal. Yeah you can just do that. Well the inland onto boards or something. Yeah well yeah. Hey that's cool. You notice that you're the only person does as well. Nobody's I mean I did land onto boards and was something that we sat there for a second trying to do. It would be a big moment. And of course it's like. Why would that be a moment at all? It was kind of quick. Yeah a quick moment so you and I. I guess I should preface that you and I were in your in sort of trust with me Wade. One of the redneck young men in and but also when we were shooting that now Obama you inform me that you're on glow and I didn't realize that but you were the fan of of Wolf of a she'll Sheila Sheila Sheila Gale. Gale ranking the genius and you showed up at At the at the at the wrestling match dressed her. Yeah that was you. Yeah and so. When I was onset I will you know we had met before that years and years ago there was no way. I was going to remember doing your horrible show. No so so I didn't I I didn't WanNa say hi because I looked like a fool if there was ever a way that you did remember that. I'd have to make you force you to go through the Rolodex of like the specific things in that show to even maybe our violence. Yeah now I I remember that because a sort of like I did not like doing those kind of shows and I don't know who talked me into it who who said it was a good thing to do. I just remember that. It was over amped. There's something fucked up happening there. Everybody was way too. Excited or too worked. Up was not a good environment for a comedy show. It should have been and I just knew there was no way. I wasn't going to get up there and ruin the vibe and also be mad about no did but do you remember what you did. No okay you just made you were like I can do this like this kind of Shit and you were like doing bits that you thought that the audience was going to like making fun of them but it killed like and you went after Zach L. Fnac is who did like his absurdist stuff. You're like doing your more absurdist ideas. You did something about a dolphin or dolphins or something really funny is great and at the beginning of the show we set our friend on fire and so we were like we didn't know what the Hell we're doing and looking back. I hate that the following getting set on fire. It's the worst dude. Yeah Yeah it's like it's like you're not really hosting as much as you are creating a place where you can do your crazy shit and then like oh yeah. Here's a guy we asked to come this right. Here's a very. Here's a guy who makes a living. Doing I keep thinking about like what we we got. Zach of anarchism. Marc Maron on the same show after that happened ten years ago. Like kinda remember standing in the back with Jack on like thinking. Like what are we doing? Yeah why are we doing? This still hadn't done comedy in years so he was trying to get out and getting out of that was the first. Oh Yeah but what is it? What was it was called Power Violence? But what was the theme? What was why was it. 'cause all these shows back and these produce shows have some grabby angle. A lot of what was it exactly. I mean the the titles kind of heavy right violence was like a genre of music that we liked me and my friends which is like a grind core metal core blast. Beat right right right. So that the stuff Fateh Sweden sorta like black meddling and black metal but less aesthetically dark dark more like silly against so we call the show that I don't know why and we didn't know how to comedy. The truth was that I started doing that. Show because I got money from my mom who died and she was like. Don't spend it on rent so I can rent a theater. That's not right. She she was more like put this towards your dream right. Yeah Yeah right so I Rented that little black box and then we started just like we are already in a band playing around town and it was like it was the band we were called took took. Yeah she O K s which was like it was during the kind of garage explosion like in the two thousand seven era who came out of that explosion just to give some context. Segel those guys but they were just miles cooler than us in and we were just idiots on stage and talk too much and like nobody likes us. We're annoying everybody and so when we started that show. I had the band guys in the show with me and then we would bring up. Stand up COMEDIANS. 'cause. I didn't realize that stand up. Comedians would just do show. You can get huge names do anything staff and then we sort of stopped playing music and just would like fuck around do whatever we could to get laughs. And then eventually kind of evolved into doing more of a focused show stand up show so but previous to that. You didn't do comedy now. I took classes at UC. Be and I. I wanted really badly to be a comedian. I would try every four months to do stand up in a way so that dream was music music for my whole childhood and then I moved out here thinking I could get into acting and writing. Well let's go back. Because I mean I watched a special. It was called the golden one golden one and It's pretty emotionally raw and I'm like sort of specialist of emotionally raw at times but like there are moments where it's like not particularly comfortably raw like there's moments during the Special Mike. He doesn't really have a handle on this yet. He's he's he has no closure at all. I miss kind of hard to watch but there are good parts too and I'm not saying that the bad part I'm just saying it's a slightly courageous insane part where you have an atom. I is it hurting. You know it's absolutely true. How did he? What pitch this man? I mean yeah but I mean the idea of getting closure the thrust of the show is about your mom's death and then her being an entertainer In playing at this place as a regular performer. In you going back to that place of a full circle thing to your hometown to i. I guess that's what it is and then this was an exercise in getting that closure like you don't have it but maybe this will do it right and I'll show everybody this. This painful attempt to display all of my talents and the Rosh way possible in front of friends and family at this. We're joined now. Where is that place? Where where'd you grow up? I grew up in a place called Gulf shores Alabama in the floor Bama. Is You know. It's like on an island in Alabama pleasure island and then the floor. Obama's right off of that island still in a piece of Alabama Culture Dido key on the line of Florida and Alabama go sure Alabama is by the it's on the water and it's next to Florida. It's like that corner. They're like what's the Closest Town in Florida Pinnacle? Oh yes so. This is like the observation. I had you know watching. It was a lot of a lot of. Florida is the south. Yeah you know most of it. Probably and but there's this moment where I realized when you were performing at this place and I saw some of the people in the audience that if you don't come from the south you know you just assume that all the people that look a certain way. Act A CERTAIN WAY. And but you're definitely not of that ilk in your sensitive guy who kind of went the way of sort of Imo and God and were different in and a slightly fragile sort and when I watch you performing in this environment there's part of me that's sort of like man that's gotTa suck but but then I realize but you're from there and they know you like whatever they're going to judge you as you're writing things that you're still one of their own. Yeah right yeah man. It was like I was freaked out by that. Because that you know like I I wanted to make sure that the because I'm like an La New York kinda comedian. I love doing shows out here and I'm super progressive and all the Shit I like has nothing to do with the south and so going home I was like God damn and I gotTa do it here like these didn't have to well. I didn't have that was the pitch that was kind of the idea. So I'm went around and I go into Birmingham and other places to test out to make sure that it would work And found that they liked it more than a lot of a lot of the shit they liked more than people in la and new york times. There sort of excited to see professionals. Yeah Yeah did you know certain rooms that you know? Kinda get the rotation of the local cats you know just to see but somebody's got some chops. Yeah good but also but I realized oh I I understand that but you are still genetically and emotionally from that place and in in what you were talking about in the special about being the kind of kids. You were like Imo Goth. What just already kid. You're doing that. They're so all those fucking rednecks whoever you still had to go to school with them and they had to deal with you and you dealt with them and they dealt with you and that happens everywhere yeah so like. There's you weren't an outsider. There's this idea that anybody that goes to the south of there not from the south is an outsider. And that I think is Kinda true. But you aren't even though you're a Weirdo. Yeah the South has plenty of Weirdos that totally an even more weirdos because they don't have the access in the same way that the big cities do so like they get the half version of something like half evolved version of the Ku band or like the band. That doesn't look as in the way that they're supposed to look right so they become even stranger than the Weirdos in the big city. They're trying to do something. It's almost like they're you know the blob right totally. I've Kinda makes a weird kind of creepy facsimile of the person it absorbs. Yeah man so like when I was in my bands like we never access. This is something I always noticed is like we never had access in the south to the pants of the time so like there would be guys wearing like skinny jeans or whatever but we didn't have skinny jeans so we would still be wearing like these chunky looking whatever five. Yeah Levi Five. Oh five but with the rest. The top half looked to the right way right but the bottom half. We looked like fools right. You didn't match the no well. I mean that was the thing though I mean that was sort of like I mean real but that was always a thing even in the original wave of punk you know. They had to get the record sent to him. Some cat and who who owned a record store can be the channel to get the shit. Yeah you got to get people to send you the clothes from New York. Someone had to bring them down but the skinny jeans things. I thought most people most guys resolved by buying growin. That's what I would do right or the target and get girl pants distraction pants. Yeah yeah that's what I would do when they yeah. I mean I just watched like a bad documentary on the replacements. You know just how weird theme of of local bands you'll having like there's a cover band. There's the ones that are the rock Bam. But then there's art rock people that and they're always gonna be dressing addresses and doing weird shit but it's almost like A. It's like a staple it repeats itself over generations in one form or another. There's always gonna be that banned. Yeah and you were them. I'd say we were. We were playing with them. We weren't them we were like we were. We were pretty okay. We were fine. We didn't seem to ever fit completely in with anybody but it was also if when we would go out of town when we go to Nashville or somewhere then we would become that ban but in our scene we were okay. It was just like but also in our scene. There was not enough bands to even make like a proper Zine Gulf shore and Golf Pensacola is like where we would end up playing. That was like really are offensive Pensacola. I've no sense of what that's why it's like. I mean I've been to Tallahassee. It's similar to Tallahassee. Except it's on the Water. Oh so there's more of that. Beach Yahoo Shit. Yeah even even your brother like there's a moment there where you're seeing your family and your cousin young these documenting moments where you know when you're talking to your cousin you know about your your mom's death you know like he looks like fucking southern. Bro. Yeah then all of a sudden he's all soft and breaking down Liam and he's he he he stayed home. We all left. My brother lives on a school bus and drives around with his family. My my cousin lives in Denver. He stayed there so he's really dealing with all of the family. How you know. Yeah well yeah your brother like there's this guy about and of course he's he's a good guy. Yeah like Free Spirit. Dude can still play some guitar. Big Time Yeah but like what is the story? So he's your older brother and there's just to you yet. He's my older brother from a different dad A really yeah so his dead And my mom were successful drug smugglers I guess is the story and his dad went to prison and Then when my mom met my dad they had me and five six years later and yeah but your mom has a twin sister. Yeah and they were they had they were Music Act. Yes in twister sin twister. Yeah of course. Yeah and but just sort of talk like if you grew up in the world of like music or local scene or art and a local seen. This story is familiar. You know like the we almost had a record deal. Why didn't we record it like there was a time where we were? Kinda hot. Yeah and you kind of focus a lot on that. I do. And they and they came. They came closer and closer than I thought. When I went back home. You know talking to my aunt like Oh yeah about the record. Deal the virgin record deal. Yeah but like Like okay so so. They're doing this act. After the drug dealing husband goes to jail she marries. Your Dad. Who's kind of like that? He's come back into your life and you get to see that guy. His quite fit in with he must have really turned his wife around some. Like you know he's you I. I don't know it's almost sober gay. Yeah but so your mom and he were married for nine ten nine or ten really wrote it out. Yeah but was like because your mom was it drinking and drug addicted persons. Yeah somehow managed. She sort of managed it like fell apart when I was about eight. My Dad Jokingly said the other day that it had about six good years but really it really was. She didn't manage. No I mean maybe until eight or nine. It was like that's when everything in with my dad to. That's where everything kinda really started visibly be like I get. There's like wine bottles in the house after the break them. Why GEWISS CHAOS? Yeah Yeah Yeah. So but but like was that during the time where she was her sister fucked up to their. Everyone was fucked up. Yeah her sister got sober. I Oh so. Did the the getting out of control coincide with the musical dream? Sort of fading or no really. The first. There's been. There was a lot of hiccups like they were most like. Most promise was in the late Seventies. Nuclear uncle was playing Bass Guitar. Oh my uncle who is in the Guy Ricky. Whitley he's online. He's just some swamp man who always always sorted in the band now. He lives on a swamp he's like completely probably doesn't know corona has happened. Yeah I just got him back there. Don't play the show with me. Found him well he he sent me that. Vhs tape of my mom him playing so that was sort of what kicked this off. It's like Oh man. Yeah so they're like see. That's something that we don't know what you're talking about swamp people right there's people in Alabama Liam swamp people for sure. Where do they live like like is the swamp like is there like a road where you're like well you would take that road and then you're you? WanNa go see. Some swamp passes some detective shit. Let's go man where they are. Yeah and they go in there and their New Orleans to earn Louisiana coast and but but he has to have some density so the foliage density to be swampy right. Yeah we have all that where I'm from like every type of body of water you could ever dream Well people who you can tell the type of person. They are. Just by like Oh. He's wearing those rubber boots. So yeah yeah like a swamp okay so the swamp guy sent you the video. That was nice out of nowhere and nowhere. I wonder what that was about. I don't know he just sent it to me. He found it and felt compelled the senators that the only existing video that I have. Yeah that exists. Yeah that I know of. And there's other ones hurricane. We used to have a lot of tapes for Hurricane Katrina. Wiped away a really. Yeah wow that's so wild and that was the one that triggered it okay. So what are the hiccups hiccups? I they had a lot of promise. They were in Jamaica and the seventies living in Jamaica. Plain sing you know meeting every famous. You Know David Bowie. Bob Marley all the People Keith Richards. Maybe yeah I'm sure all new ever came down there. They were the girls. Were like. Oh sing back up. And just like they're now with white girls living in Jamaica Hussein. Yeah Yeah and they were identical twins and they were like beautiful and just like love the players and pretty big rock access some pretty serious memories totally remember the twins. Do I remember. That's when I realized going home. It's like all of these innocent stories that I hear like. Oh Yeah your mom. My mom would always tell me I spent the night David Bowie. You know and I remember as a kid thinking. She spent the night like walking on the beach. David Nice sweep over and now I'm like. Oh Dan that David Bowie is fucking. There are worse things Nudie. Yeah totally yeah so that was happening and then my mom met her husband. My brother's dead. And then they got into smuggling drugs back and forth from Jamaica. Yeah so then. He got caught that the that was like that became the focus and they had a kid who who died in a car accident to at that time so lake. It just was like thing that we I think you really delineate that stuff in the special in the documentary like you know you talk to your aunt about the kid your mom loss but you know I guess it was your brother your half brother anyway but it happened long before you right. Yeah yeah so he died. Her husband got arrested. That was like a big hiccup in the music thing. You know what I mean. Yeah and then Before he went to prison they had my brother when he went to prison. My mom moved back to Alabama where my aunt had already moved back then they had the second wind of Sin Twister. Okay let's focus record all the songs they recorded so many good songs in this great studio called Airwave Studio in Birmingham and And so that was like the moment for them the like they might actually do it this time the mid eighties and then it just didn't really happen again and then this is your mom walk in theater and then yeah then my aunt moved down to Gulf shores fears that my dad left mum followed to Gulf shores. So where were you guys? We are in Birmingham until I was a little kid. You know just until his shot that Shit live there so but like at the scene at home though I mean what yelling and screaming and throwing shit and I know it was just mystery constant like I don't know who's GonNa come home. Luckily had an older brother. Who Air you know it was just There was no classic movie drunkeness. It was like nodding out kind of like fucked up mine. And my mom's like an ex junkie like or she was a junkie and she died soon. Dope yeah so like it wasn't like right right so it was more. You know she alive. Go you know total there. It was like Oh if she starts drinking. Chile the seizure. That kind of thing so it wasn't like a as energetic is right. There's no sitting Nancy Shit going on your dad. Looks like kind of a control freak. Dude will yes I mean and my dad was like until ten years ago like this backwards hat kind of cut off Jean shorts guy a really and then he met A new his wife who and they've like very much in and now he's obsessed with fitness and kind of like Yoga Golf but he's a sober dude. Like you know real deal does thing. 'cause that guy fully doesn't runs meetings and all that right right. Yeah Yeah I mean it was sort of wild that like you know. 'cause a lot of the jokes in the show you know were you know. You're kind of slightly dark joke. Some of them were about the family. Who's more of the songs? A lot of them in some of the interstitial stuff that really kind of told the story of where you come from right. Yeah Yeah so what? You didn't end up having a fucking drinking problem. No no no. We were like my brother was. He got five more years than I did so he. We both had like a lot of hate us for alcohol in the other way to go. We just like I was this kid. Who just fucking hated it and link hated it and felt completely uncomfortable and pissed off anytime like every time we know turned thirteen. When I'd see like my friends are starting to get fucked up here just like fucking pissed but trying to be cool about it in Santa. Didn't care right in that lasted until I was in my mid twenties. Probably this like rage about it And then my brother was a little bit more chill a really similar kind of a ruin away. Yeah what's the time line on like? When she died not that long ago right she died eleven years ago eleven years ago. Yeah Yeah so I was nineteen twenty and you were still at home no I had just moved to. La Okay so your your dad leaves And you're how old was nine. Oh so officially laughed. When we had like ten years being down there with your mother will yes so then. My Dad came back when I was in high school. My when my dad left my mom was in and out of Rehab or in trouble and be like on on. What's IT called recalculation probation. Yeah it's refund mess me and then my dad had gotten sober. He was in living in a halfway house and doing all that kind of that life. He lost his law license and was he was a lawyer and he came back to live in Alabama after visiting one in like seeing the kind of shift show. Yeah Yeah and you got stepped up. He for sure stepped up. Yeah it was really weird he kind of realize like wow you know johnny and wit have already figured this out how to raise themselves so. I'll like get them a place to stay and live and take care of them and work you know. He worked as an assistant at a title company. And just figure out how to help them. In whatever way I can. But they've got it so it was still like we didn't have any real rules or anything but when we had like a consistent place yeah and you had your dad for whatever that was worth and he's always been like dude any time. I'd love to talk to you and tell you what happened and what went down and I waited until just recently firms before the special. Yeah we sort of like about two years ago. He was driving me to the airport and he like kind of laid it all out. His whole fucked up shit was surprising. No I mean once he hear it from him he was like. I didn't expect to live this long. That's his that was his idea. He was like the Shit. I grew up liking. Was All these people this free love. And and then my age for some reason everything is than Fedex and like all the there was no more people smoking weed and having sex with each other it was like shooting heroin and getting aids and like it was different thing but I still. My parents never hugged me and I just wanted to die so he was like I wanted to live. Fast and a good looking corpse had a family. And we're so I don't. I don't think it's a good thing but I I guess I get an year but like the one thing I noticed about the whole thing so we'll get to it so you by the time you leave to come out here. I mean your mother's kind of lost you anyways. Yeah no I watched my mom die like one hundred times so it was when she actually did I it was. It was a really hard and painful but it was some way it was like a relief is terrible. Isn't sounds yeah. Think she's actually gone. And when did because in another part of the the sort of stories that from the specialists like your aunt then your mom's twin sister stop talking to you. Yeah for no no. I mean all kinds of reasons when my mom was dying it was absolute chaos with them. There was like drugs and money stuff and a safe with a ring in it. Oh all kinds of shit like that and my aunt really was like going through hell dealing dealing with her sister and then She was doing some fucked up stuff some bad stuff to my brother who were watching her mom. Diane Ultimately like I went to the funeral and I was like. I'm never gonNA talk to any of these people again. Oh really yeah it was. It was a bad guy. That's no worse than everybody. Yeah everybody I I mean I went to the funeral and they didn't like you know like they had decided that they didn't really want anything to do with me a long time before that. I think because I moved in with my dad so So this this strain. When at the funeral they had a slide show of of my mom and her first son Casey in their life together. Yeah and then a slide show of my mom and my brother and then they didn't have anything of me really. Yeah and so. I was like fucking. I'm Outta here. This is it. I left like failed. Went Back to California. Never looked back. So who called you to tell? Your Mom died your dad my brother she he said we need to go home. A you need to come home. Your mom has got a couple more days And she was keeping it a secret that she was dying. What would she dying of? Sarosa seen all the things that area all the things that that life the gift of that the Tanic souvenirs rate of a life embracing health. And it's like dude at that time every one of my friends down there to like each one of our parents were just dropping dropping in the same kind of way real drugs or alcohol. Yeah whatever it's just like a hard living kind of place down there so when you came out here it seems like you know. It's not that specific but it seems like before she died or whatever was going down there. You just need to get out of there. There was no way I was GONNA stay down there and you didn't. You had a vague sense of being an actor or I stopped doing music because I had taken it so seriously throughout my whole childhood and never had like a life outside of a band. Yeah and so I had stopped doing and I don't WanNa do this anymore. I admit it my friend and codirector. Clay who I grew up with down there. He had gotten a scholarship into Savannah. College designed for a short little sketch thing. We had made a good school. It's a great school and then I was like well. Maybe I could do something like that but I couldn't go to some fancy school and then I met a guy in Florida who worked at a special effects company in La in. I was talking to him about it like could I wanNA move move to la? And he's like dude. Give me a call when you you know and I'll hook you up with a job as a PA. So I was like great. That's what I'm doing. And that became my plan and then moved out here right after high school in. That guy never answered the phone. It was like rudest awakening in media. I've heard so many stories of the people that like this one guy. They don't know the guy that well but they're like I'm going this one guy who I don't know didn't know middle. Yeah said come on out and I'll set you up man and I wonder how many times I've done that to people. I try to only offer things that I can handle that I can really do. You know what I mean so all right so so you come out here. But that kid that co-directed the special with you Claes's yeah and he was part of power violence as well. Yeah see guys have been working together for a long time since we were ten really band with me. And he's out here. Yeah what's he doing? He's just making stuff. You're writing directing little things you know me and him are hopefully to make more stuff you know if they let us. Sounds like you should make a real script about the family. Yeah Yeah I want to. I'm trying that's what we're trying right now gothic if anybody's Listening D. movie. Yeah because I think that. What's really compelling about drugs and whatnot but in family tension but it also focuses around a very specific period in music where they were kind of doing a stevie nicks trip. Yeah yeah like a dual dual stevie nicks trip. Yeah they love. I mean and I found all those tapes. There's at one point when my man is talking about Casey like we're at the kitchen looking about the kid died and the two inch tape of tape. Yeah and She was saying those. Were all ruined by Katrina. And I got them all digitizing the guy was like these are two inch tape. You can't ruin these like indestructible so. I was listening through shit all the way back to like seventy five you all you have it. Yeah. I'm getting a bunch of songs remixed and mastered because it's like some of them are isolated tracks. Yeah but there's like recordings of them fucking around in a bar and asked him doing like a cover of whatever fleetwood. Mac's really really cool. And then you can hear him talking to each other in between songs and like entertaining the crowned. No kidding. Yeah that must be nice. It's really cool. Well that's that was sort of the interesting thing about you. Know retrieving this past but okay but can get background. And that's how did you hear? What the fuck would you end up doing? I got a job at a skate. Shop in Santa Monica acted skate. Jump on the third street promenade and a good skater. I'm okay not not by California. Standards Rally Bama standards. I'm good because the ground isn't even good enough to push around on the once you get out of here. It's like there's a real good skaters but you can hold your own. Yeah Yeah Yeah and so hit a shop. Yeah enough to be the guy behind the counter at the skate show but also probably the non intimidating guy. Yeah especially with their kids right. No asking. They need some Alpha skateboard jock totally. You know you're just like you could do a few tricks and be probably. You've probably the onesie east more skateboards by eight year olds in anybody. Totally they really connect with me. Nobody is ever been intimidated by me in their whole life. So yeah I was just doing that. And then I looked up on mice base. I was like a it looked up people. It was like is anybody out here from the South Trying to be an actor and then some people were like. Oh Yeah. I'm from wherever? Here's what you gotTa do and I went to an acting class in and I was like what else I need to do. And then they jacked in some some like a scam radio. I'm sure some type of pyramid scheme and their that. You need to get a head shot. And I remember. Not knowing what headshot wasn't saying what is a headshot row L. and so they you know it was a scam studio. You know one of those things where they're like we'll meet we'll introduce you to an age. Yeah Yeah Yeah okay. So how'd that work? Did you do any did you do acting? I did all of it and then I got into real serious stuff you know and took it really seriously. It was like growing up like loved movies and Gus Fan Sentence. Shit like that. My Own Private Idaho was my is probably my favorite movie bill but especially back then I Realized that like everybody out here was who was working in all these acting classes on shows like gossip girl or whatever it was. They had never seen a movie in their life. They were just like really good-looking. Sure people cast him and stuff and and I just became super bitter about it. Oh yeah prematurely. Better yeah inside even getting into the game. No not fucked. I'm trying really hiring. These people are actually doing it. And they don't know anything about it or hear about it and so that luckily that shifted into me. Doing I was doing the band but then I started doing standup. So we're doing the Santa. I started just like in all the rooms right and still you know pretty much just like east side rooms. You know we did some shows you ensure you missed. I remember one time thinking okay. I have a joke that I think mark might like right when I got on stage. Where was that It was it wasn't meltdown but it was at meltdown right again. We're show or something like that. Yeah you were with your niece. Oh Eden was in town that one time got her in there. Yeah yeah she didn't seem to care much the I didn't know if I could keep her there like I took off Well no I mean I was like. Oh He's sitting he. We were sitting in the crowd which was kind of like odd and then East right after whatever knows I. I like to sit in the crowd. Sometimes I'll sit in the crowd when openers on a at a theatre in school and get the feel. Yeah what are people experiencing as this feel for the people and it's good but so were you making a living doing comedy no. I didn't make a living doing comedy until three months ago. Do The brokest of anybody. I've ever known until like three months ago I would. I mean my buddy clay always like. How do you people's live? Yeah doesn't for me. It's like unemployment and some crazy job or whatever you know Yeah No. It wasn't until recent that I guess because it is sort of interesting like you now watching the thing the special because I remember I saw like a trailer fordism but then I watched a special Mike Man. He's like he can't decide what he wants to do. It row watching the confusion. He's he's pretty good at a lot of things he's not willing to let anything go and he's protecting himself from failing at any one thing by doing many things pretty well. Yeah that's a good. That's a good way to put it. I don't know if I would put that on the blurb. No yeah well nobody. The thing is like I related to it. I'm not trying to be negative. I understand putting stuff out in the world. That in retrospect was really probably too raw for for for me to to know you how it would land near. You know what I mean. Well it comes from complete desperation like for music for me. Yeah desperation for what though any any thing like? It was desperate to connect again right with good night. Okay that's different. That's different than but that's not desperation for money and it's a desperation that y'all can through and creativity where you know you need to be seen By whoever you know like yeah this is me right. I mean it's some in a way desperate to be seen but like for me. It was like getting that tape like my age. It might comedy agents had just fired me right right before Mike that Guy Ricky. Whitley sent me that tape and I was like really. Yeah the absolute fired you because they can get you work or yeah it was doing the golden one show but there was no music in it yet now and people just started as a one person show kind of about your your death your mom and swear to yeah less about the parallels of our failure or oh okay that that that theme this sort of like we both were failing. I mean the thing was like you know you're young right. But she was young too like when she was kind of. I kept thinking. Oh in that video. She's my age right right right and and she had already it already all happened and now she's at this bar. Should the house band yeah? She's kind of done right and I kept going. I've just been let go and his this. Would I gonNA fucking do right right right? And she called me the fucking golden one in lake all the time and So yeah so. That's kind of how that worked and then. I had recorded a bunch of music. Maybe if I recorded these songs that wrote about you know my mom or whatever. It is a breakup I'll feel this connection in this like creativity and record all these demos with a friend of mine and then I listened back all these lyrics message. This fucking embarrassing. Never GonNa Chill Anybody. These show everybody. Well I just changed all the lyrics kind of make them more embarrassing. Okay just taking removing metaphor out to make them funnier. Yeah Bryce like if I had a song about my mom drinking yourself to death just saying my mom. Drink yourself to the right answer. Is she a party Toy Diet? Yeah Party to death party to death which was one of my first jokes like seeing among party to death and and like so. Yeah it was like it was just all out of this lake like fluster of like desperation to just like connect creative. I think it was good. It was just like because I'm sort of Sensitive to my own discomfort around performing uncomfortable things. 'cause I've always done. It always been the way I start. You know like I'm GonNa put this out there and I know people are laughing because they're uncomfortable. They're not laughing because like I have complete control this joke laughing because sort of like. Oh man what the you know. And that's the type of laughter. Yeah but but it seems to me that you know doing the songs and telling the jokes around this stuff. I don't know why. Why was your discussion about putting the song? Having a hard time getting a boner was like I put this in this really necessary. I just feel like it's nice to have a break from the death to talk about erectile dysfunction white and things up a little bit. Nobody's talking about it. Not Enough people were not enough. You were being honest about sometimes. There's a there's a certain type of person who will come up to me and I'm like Oh. This person lost his mom to alcohol right. And then there's the type of guy who's like easyknit come talk to me and I felt like he can't get a look. I mean back when I was younger. I understood exactly what I understood the performance anxiety part of it. But like you just have to you getting better with that and you just have to shift and say what you want. Someone who's patient very patient confidence occasions. Yeah just sort of like you know. Shut up it's happened. They with me but but it seems to me that most of the Closure that you got was really really seemed in the to the conversations with your cousin and your aunt was like really where the shit land because you like for some reason throughout a lot of that documentary footage. You didn't really like. I could feel you not being able to get to your emotions around what you would. You'd lockdown like what your old man Shit. Yeah you're you're locked down. I mean your social and you can be funny but you know you couldn't let go now and it's just a in you know in therapy and all that stuff too. It's just been such a part of my life forever and I. I don't know necessarily how to access my anger and over. No just like my my being fucked like in my childhood and my Dad. Veiling my mom. Nobody taking care of me. I I don't know how to access the anger about it at all so talking to them. You know the things that I get emotional. A bounder are usually not even involving them. It's like so yeah I I didn't Imo in the way that I wanted to but then there is also more. I didn't want it to feel like the apology tour. You know me like going around and talking to those everybody trying to get them to say. I'm sorry or when it might be I didn't feel that at all what I felt was Like you know was your cousins empathy. Clearly there's this back story about them all turning on you and then you know coming back and doing this that there was a real moment air where you know he. He seemed to feel bad. Yeah and in. That moment was pretty pretty amazing right. Yeah he He feels a lot of guilt. He he he was there for me. When my mom was dying the cousins were there him and My other cousins and my brother but he feels a lot of guilt about my childhood. Not being there You know they my brother and him and my cousin my other cousin Jenny. They all had a car and drive away. Just Kinda often. I WAS STUCK IN MY COUSIN. Wilkes feels a lot of and they all do they And that was a whole. That's a conversation we've since had together through the four of us but it's like what leaving you. They feel bad like leaving me just as a kid. Yeah there to kind of break the bottles or whatever it is when they could drive off and go fuck guarded. Yeah exactly you're dealing with the sad part of partying they're gonNA go and have sex. And but but when when you regroup your aunt like how is that I mean? She seemed a little withholding but she was but willing and she's become less withholding. Now it's it's personal for her to She was very willing happy to talk to me right at home moment of using your mom and her twins. Yeah yeah and I realized kind of Jesse get older and I just can't remember if sometimes why I'm so angry. Yeah right and and I think she might be able to articulate it but she feels guilt in about how everything went down and you know she. She's still dealing with. She says she dreams about my mom every night. You know she That was her entire identity was my mom and my mom together twins. It's rough man. Yeah especially when you're like creative together. They're identical yeah and so I just I did become a started. Have a lot of sympathy for her. And she's sober to yeah. Well that's the thing about your man is like. He's he's seem. Would you kind of like you know born again? Sober Dude like I mean like born again like sober not Christian or anything like that. He knows how to do the work and processed shit. Yeah and he's willing to do it. But it's still going to have that kind of practicality element he's willing to take responsibility right you know but he's really Kinda doing the work he has the language. Yeah they looks like he's done the work he's pretty solid. He's he's done all he can do. He can't live in the past or or in shame anymore because he's recovered right. Yeah that's totally what it is. He doesn't feel like wake up every night. Guilty kind of thing because yeah because you let it go. Yeah yeah which is part of it. Well have you ever done the Alanon thing? When I was a kid I would. Yeah with my mom I would That was part of Latino mandated. Sort of thing that I I would have to be a part of but then I haven't really been that big of a part of that since I was a child. Holiday Acoa no. I haven't done any of that. There's some good fucking I hear some pretty solid. Acoa SHEEP ON. I know a couple of cats who do that you know who come from a serious alcoholism families and that's like a kind of emotionally Grad level. Kinda Shit that's cool. Yeah because specific thing I mean you know it just like it seems like contextualising is the difficult thing like you know if you're going to therapy right and you're working on this stuff and you're trying to access the grief. I mean it would seem to me that being that what you're experiencing is highly common for people who were brought up or who grew up in that shit. Yeah you know what I mean. And being partisan group mind round it would probably enable maybe some more access. Yeah Yeah you're right. I should do stuff like that. Yeah maybe once a week or something once or once or four times a week while I may. I'll tell you who I know. Okay so now. How is this special? Being received two people have been nice on the Internet suite. That of itself is really rare. People have been cool. I do. I didn't know but I do. A Bill Hicks joke. So people have been really angry about that. Which one about Jesus on the Cross and that's right that's Lenny Bruce Joke Winnie will. People have been tweeting the bill his version of one desert. Okay I think because people have been tagging you and all these plus they go. Marc Maron widmer. Thomas Steals Bill Hicks. Joe Telling me that you get it. And they tag Joe Rogan to. So that's been the most of the hatred. Good Man I you know I. I did think I accidentally think I I think I did. I thought I did a bill Hicks wine on CONAN. Many years ago played me forever. It turns out like a lot of people were doing that. Yeah so and but but you're joke is exactly what. What was it my mom? My aunt called me one year and my mom's death day which is a weird data. Remember somebody but we're taught to remember things that way when Jesus comes back feel like he'll be like I thought business let's remove all their memorabilia from the worst day of my life here right right right right. It was certainly around when Lenny was around but I get it. Yes so you dealing with a little of that deal with that but other than that. Everybody on online has been really cool. People have said Nice things and I didn't necessarily think that people would connect in the kind of way you know so many people have felt the same kind of shit rile right and so it's it's been cool. It's been nice. You know people have been nice to me giving you more work or I don't know yet because right now we're stuck at home but I hope so. Yeah the you know special been out since late February So I hope it. Does you know like I. I had to cancel the tour. But right of course did come along with like are you developing for HBO. Now no they just gave especially now. Yeah how it happens. They saw they saw this version that I was doing before I had music. And they were Lincoln and not too interested in that then I was doing it With Music Bo Burnham saw that and then a twenty four got involved And then we pitched. Hbo This idea and like of me going home and kind of doing it there and then they were like cool. Yeah let's do that. And they just Kinda let me go and then we had to hurry because the tourist season was about to end so we need people there to actually go to the show so we had to shoot like a month later. So you shot that for outside of friends and family which I guess was what a dozen mate shooting you. Shout that for Real fucking. Yeah Gulf shores tourist. Yeah pretty brave. How were you? How'd you pull that off without their woman Sean? Patton used to do a show there like twice a year and that place not there at another place similar to that and they love it man. John would fucking demolish just like telling whatever stories you know they're just open B- southern boy to right. Yeah we're from New Orleans. Yeah so it was like they were cool it you know. They and they laughed more at a couple of jokes than anybody. Like that dumb in love song and I thought that I was one of maybe more similar to them politically than they realize that. Making Fun of them on. It's funny you know. It's like they were cool at the end of the show. I was like Whoa. How did how people's MOMS or Dads died here in like ninety five percent of the crowd? How Sean doing shots great? Yeah Yeah I've seen a long time I you know I don't feel out of the kids your generation that often you know. It's funny as when I first started doing comedy. You around all the time like maybe right before too. I would see you like all the weird shows maybe early. It was like right when w t F had started. Because like I was still like I had to like I hadn't I needed to kind of like get some foothold. I needed to work and I think I was working at the store but like you know I didn't WanNa do the improvident really want to do the laugh factory and I and I felt at that time. I thought it was necessary that I do those places for that audience. That was a missing piece. Were those audiences and that because I had been part of the original comedy movement in New York that like I had some sort of places but like I. I never liked the audiences that much. It was just too selective. Yeah you know I came up in clubs performing for a broad base of people and then it just like everybody was so precious in. The comedy was so specific. I always presented it. Yeah so you know I did. It and people did like me in. It was fine. They seem to be like here. Comes our cranky uncle but I definitely had a sort of like resentment through the homogenization of type of comedy. Because it was all the same. Yeah those audiences. Yeah I think I mean I like going to the comedy store. I've tried many times to get in at the comedy store. And they just can't it's like just going and hanging out all the time now. Those audiences that were kind of built. You know through all comedy or through whites weird because now there is sort of a new generation of. You're actually excited comedy. Audiences people have become the because we're all sort of putting ourselves out there. I'm glad forms and because of podcasts. There's just a whole world of younger people that are like on top of it and know the dudes and our ended the thing and they come out you. It's really kind of what was before. The plague Kinda Heyday for it. All and and it seems like that's happening. A lot of those. All spaces are kind of closing down or they're not as many right no way. There's not nearly as many all shows as there used to be. It used to be like you could do a show night show a night but now it's like and also used to be the comedy store. Nobody was there are no United States. Yeah so what's yeah it's like it's it's crazy. How kind of flipped flipped around right right and a lot of the people that were driving. The scene also became bigger acts. Yeah and so they didn't they don't do it anymore. L. Came famous. I I was thinking about that the other day or like maybe about six months ago like Shit. Nobody from my crew has gotten famous. It's like it going to be because of the group the guys ahead of us. There's like ten of a Mugabe Super Big. And then there's y'all seen y'all got super vague and like fuck. Where Hardy in our thirties nobody forties. Oh yeah that's good. That's a good reminder. It's also funny to think that I was seeing you now. The next one up like you know I think like exact I would say. It's probably the one after me. Oh Really Kinda maybe maybe not I mean like I remember when Zach started. You know I don't believe we started the same time I feel like he started a little after me. Like Rogan's definitely in my generation. All I know is the one on top US. Was that eighties crew. You know like Seinfeld and all those guys and you know we're the wave after that and then there's another wave that's and then then you guys and that's always the best thing you know something that everybody you always ask people from the store that they always skip right over. That on your podcast. What is you'll go. What was it was that you always get? What was that I like about Jim Carey and they just go down and then they talk about something else and we say why is it. Always skip over the Jim Carey conversation. I don't know I feel like he wasn't around that much that there were certain people that started there. But like that's true you know. He doesn't get mentioned that much. I don't know how long he stayed in it. I feel like you know it was kind of like meteoric. Yeah like you know when he locked in but I don't I it's a good question I don't know I mean I wish he would come on. Yeah it's weird. He hasn't what no he doesn't. He sort of an isolated duties in odd dude. He's changed yeah you know. But he's very very creative guy. But I don't know as more podcasts exponentially grow. I think that that kind of like the idea that they need to do this. One kind of gets a little diminished When when there's so many other ones I I know. I'm sort of that second wave. Oh Gee I wasn't. I didn't invent the podcast but it helped popularize zipper now. We're at some other level man like you know there. There are certain people that are like you know they have a choice. All I can offer someone like Jim. Carrey is like well. I talked to Tom. Driesen and And Jay Jay Walker. So yeah if you wanted to be part of my little oral history experiment around the comedy store you can come down to Obama jury know that. Guy. Sure no I know. I'm just saying that like that right whether they do this or DAX. Or if they're of a certain type of mind that can do joe whatever. Yeah Yeah Yeah I run. The same shop over here hopefully will be able to continue doing live ones. It's hard to say you're the last live one. I've got booked low really. This thing is really working out for me. This corona make some calls US willing. Yeah but I guess we really don't know what's going to happen. Yeah podcast is okay. I guess people want make more cartoons. Now there's indoor stuff that are okay. It's going to be the big. There's going to be the big everyone's getting a whole new skill. Set PEOPLE NEVER HAVE TO LEAVE. And maybe some cool albums or some terrible true. Yeah right depending on how people creative people are using their time like as I casually getting on the live instagram. Like ten minutes. And I'm like this is stupid. There's nothing happening. I'm yeah I'm I'm out here in the garage again. The people love it they do. I wonder when people are going to start slipping and I can pack you guys okay. I'm losing it. We're just filming stuff. They definitely shouldn't be filming. Oh that'd be great already happened a NBA Guy. Accidentally filmed himself getting a blowjob on instagram. Live really near. How do you accidentally no? He said he was hacked to. But it's like his hand on those definitely. Something people are doing if they can. Yeah all right so have you talked to your at Yeah. I talked to her lunch. I'LL GET I. She's never going to this but I'm GONNA hopefully. We'll surprise her with the record that they wanted it all mixed and mastered and that'd be sweet get labeled a put it out. Some little reissue label. You know you're a man press five hundred or something. Yeah that's the dream. Well that's nice and maybe then everything will. You'll be better. I don't think so.

218: Holly Winn | Why You Need To Use "The Color Code Method"
"Alright it's time to talk with our featured guests Holly Win Holly. How you doing today go good doing great the sky. That's good here. It's good to hear it's refreshing. Say this quite a bit with other guests but like it's refreshing to hear that people are doing great and we're experiencing recession and experiencing a pandemic but it's good to know that you're kind of looking at this in a positive way you know what. I mean an optimistic view. You gotta find the good in things. That's for sure. Yeah I completely completely agree so holly right now. Tell us a little bit about your past your present some of your future goals. How'd you get into this field For me original background is graphic design and marketing Being from Minnesota I went to the University of Minnesota Duluth and gained my graphic design degree. There I mean focus. Early on in my career is it. Basically the design and marketing aspects and kind of alignment future goals. I've pressed forward with a little bit more of my marketing Aspirations so I came from the background of trade shows and large format printing. So you think. We're getting into the dental industry with marketing. Was there channel products where I'm at now currently and I was looking to be a part of something. That's good company was looking to be able to better people's lives and I've definitely found it worth their external products. So it's an interesting start but I really I have enjoyed it fully and I don't know if I could ever get out of dental at this point so you started off not in dental though right. You're what was the link to dental? When did you start saying okay? Let me start working per to just yeah it was. I guess I like. I'd mentioned that reach out for anything. Better people's lives I mean. I looked for different jobs in like art education and just didn't really make any connection there and Other than Matt Dental just kind of jumped out at me and especially their dental products. I mean there's lots of fun. Bright colors their brand awareness that I've been working with this is really eye-catching and it just kind of captured me and and I've been here ever since so then in the you mentioned your experiences or your expertise is like mainly in designing and marketing. What have you seen since the day you I guess graduated from that design and marketing to now. How has that changed? What's what's been changing. What's evolving well? Definitely just communication in general mean I graduated in twenty twelve but we have a social media graphic designer that she graduated just recently within the last three years here and just the amount of stuff that she has learned with social media and how to approach consumer is in a different way has just old light years of different than like. I said I liked the couldn't Claire Age but I know she was quite younger than me but she's just such a great skill set that I've found and yeah mostly that communication. It's just there's so many different outlets in trying to hone in just a few and really just rocket launch so communication is what you feel like something. That's I agree. I think communication I mean. We've we've I guess made more ways to communicate with people in a ton of like before it was just thrown than phone text. Email right and then now it's like social media and all these thing it's almost like as if we have our phones but then when we get a call where like. I don't know this number WHO's this and we don't antibiotic. Yeah but when we get like a direct message. Dm or or something right on social media where like Oh let me open it up. Let me see what this is about right? And you're more inclined to to look at it so it's almost as the phone has a different purpose for it. You know what I mean then. Just like answering. They're playing kidding because of because of the way we utilize social media and communication. What about design? Yeah Vault what's in design that you've seen has evolved in the design aspect I would say capturing consumers differently I mean. People are definitely pushing their brand awareness and just coming from a more relatable source. I mean each brand I feel has a certain voice that they need to feature and if you can find that voice than really connect with your audience like that seems to be key with the design. I mean You can have an amazing product but you definitely need to have some type of voice and backing in story that really needs to push it forward and that seems to be kind of like a key thing in design. I think that makes things have that little spark that kind of intrigued the consumer which is needed. How can someone find that boys? For example of our starting mile business or something and then I said I want my designed to look like I care. Okay now now what right like? How do you put that into context? Have you put it into like a design? Or how can you even find that voice? Where were you can outlay it to design? Yeah I think like you said like if your message is something that you WanNa promote about that you care and that's where you're kind of your voice is coming from. I mean working with the designer and really expanding that message of the feelings and usually with this design and creative background that you have like even this format of carrying like there's a sense of a color power that can go with a softness that needs to go with it so you kind of build on that and within design and marketing. I mean it's huge the communication that you have with your end user. Whoever you're communicating with how to push that forward and just bring up examples and if you like something and grabbing inspiration I think it's just that's kind of the main focus is getting that inspiration invoice out forward. Seru that creative net. Gotcha Gotcha okay. So then let's talk about business. I know he kind of alluded to it before. But your area of expertise is especially in zirk. What is it? I'm currently the marketing manager. But I do work closely with our a graphic designer Again main background had started off early career as graphic design to move very creative outlet person. And that's do you feel and this is kind of a hard hitting question here. Do you feel like most dental offices? You work with or dental practices or just dentistry in Dent. In general do you feel like it's sometimes a creative industry or not so much of a creative industry definitely a creative industry? It's I mean I've looked at different Aspects of dentistry. And just kind of coming from that design background like one of the main things is even just how people match shades of T- The to till make that stealing or whatnot and that artistry in itself and very impressive like that just like blew my mind watching videos of that and being more aware of bashing. I mean it's definitely an art form. Yeah I agree I agree. How can someone? And this is the marketing background of few. How can like someone has dentists? Who who is creative? Who's doing on that? How can they market that to the general population in the best most easy way to understand or not the best way because there be many ways but like the most easy way to understand most acceptable way for the patient or the community? It'd be like Oh they're artist. How does that work? Yeah definitely I think just making sure that you brand your practice and that your present in the community and I mean video and imagery goes a long way. I mean cell phones nowadays. That's how we capture life and I think it's something that dentition utilize and look at what we're doing and posted on social media. Show their patients what they're proud of and passionate about. I think that's totally. Were putting out there. Where do you think right now dentition? It'd be posting or putting that out there on like what what what social media platform or or what will adjust their website. Like where do you think would be best right now right now? I would say instagram. That seems to be like kind of the hot topic and I mean even on top of that with the younger generation I mean I have it. The Tick Tock. App is phenomenal. If you need a good laugh but there's great stuff on there. I think you just need to put yourself out there on any pot from you. Can I mean obviously there are certain platforms that reach specific audiences like Lincoln? More that professional aspect. And there's facebook that you can probably go more business with where instagram intake top. You can maybe have a little more fun with it. I think it's one of those things. Like any of them are really great but instagram seems to be kind of my talk. One that people really connects with and message back and forth on and comment on products or Just communicate that way. Yeah Yeah Take Talk. I don't I mean I know a lot of people are starting to use it but I I haven't heard and maybe it's because like I don't have my ear to the ground but I haven't heard many new patients coming in from there or like what what what is the demographic for. Tick Tock like. I said it's Kinda younger demographic stuff nearly a comedic relief and found myself during this pandemic. It's something that just kind of like it. Just kind of. It's nice little release but I do find lots of the hygienist on. They're just doing fun. Little things are missing their patients and doing dental on their dogs or their cats and trying to chase their husbands down cleaning their T. If so it's like I said more becoming directly but it's definitely kind of fun to share and be a part of and Again it shows that passion that you have for your job and I think a lot of dental professionals do have that passion otherwise they wouldn't be doing it. Yeah and I do believe like Tick Tock continues it will it will continue to pivot and involved so I mean I think it is good thing to to stay on top of mind right. I would be interested to know anybody listening like if anybody has already gotten. You know you patients from there but with Instagram yes. We do an facebook too but I know instagram right now and to me. I feel like incorrectly from wrong. But do you feel like those are two different beasts like instagram facebook. Yeah I do. There's just it's a different audience in a way And again different communication I mean. Instagram is very picture motivated. So I think people like to scroll through and if you have something interesting show like that's a good place to do it. Yeah I think so. Then how do you think someone should if I'm listening and I'm like okay on a star posted on instagram? I'm committed I'm ready now. What do they post like a picture of their outset of their practice and be like? Hey we're accepting new patients like what do you think is the best way for you? I Want I want you to think like as the general population and you're just scrolling on facebook right. How would you stop? Or what would make you? Stop on Ah DENTAL OPPOSITES FACEBOOK or not. Facebook instagram page. And be like. Oh this is well. This is interesting. Yeah definitely I mean like. I said dental to professional passionate I mean. Show the inside of your practice. Show how you organize the near Sterilization Center. I mean this is stuff that patients don't always get to see like your day to day life and Interview your staff people like to be relatable and I think getting that out there of that communication back and forth as a patient and seeing it and introducing your staff like what better than a friendly face that you've already seen on instagram. And you're walking into it like hey I know you I mean. I think it's a great way to do that What should they not do on instagram? I think it's good to keep it light hearted definitely Keep Communication Open But I don't think just don't let it drop. That would be the main goal. I would say you're gonNA start an instagram. I would certainly post as often as possible Once a day just make sure your president. Because that's what people WANNA see. I mean if you post one picture of your practice accepting new patients and it dies down I think you're going to kind of lose that luster of what it could really be calm and then instagram also has instagram's stories right. So what would you recommend for that? Oh again same kind of thing. I mean showing off your practice showing off your brand Maybe even something. If you go out with your team or celebrate Tori thing I mean again. It's not relatable factor of seeing these people doing what they're passionate about in connecting that way got you during this pandemic. How can they do that? Because I feel like we might get tunnel vision and be like okay. I have no idea what else to post about I am. I'm not seeing patients. I'm not seeing my team. I'm basically home. I mean I can go to the office but I'm basically home and I. I mean I took and like so many shots and videos of my sterilization. Now what certainly I think. A huge Part of that would be what you're doing to get ready for reopen and then it's GonNa Happen it's GonNa look different. People are probably going to be a little nervous to come and but I think you need to show your patients that you are taking the Syria. Then you're moving forward and doing the best for your staff as well as the patients themselves. You WanNa make them feel safe. I mean of course everybody wants to feel safe or have the answer is and sometimes. It's hard to take that when you don't have all of the answer is but if you can at least give them what your doing your sterilizing in between You're going to be wearing personal protection equipment as best you can. I'm sure that's kind of a hot topic. Obviously one dental practices can get that type of stuff Another one would be that aerosol control I'll do a shameless plug here. We HAVE OUR HIGH VOLUME MR thirsty. Which is a great piece to control Aerosol in the dental office And I think you're showing that you care about them enough you're passionate enough about your business that you are taking precautions for that. Yeah I think what would be really nice. You kind of sparked idea right. Now he's like maybe make a a post about each of those right now all in one day but like this is to step one. I'm like what we're doing number one. We're doing this right. That's you posted on Wedneday number two. Were doing their assaulting number three. You're doing that and you compile those videos and then put them on your website on like frequently asked questions somewhere in there you know. And then when PLO scroll down yeah they can see like oh I had. How safe is? Now what kind of baby P P P do you have? How are you making sure? I don't know something right with Arezzo. And then you they can click the video and watch it. You know what I mean. And it's also been on social media so it's GonNa it's GonNa leave them to your social media from that Web from your website but at the same time. It's a frequently asked questions you know. So in case they people did miss it on your social media in the past. It's on your website now. So it's interesting. I like that idea right now. Hollywood can identify do today. There listening right now and they're like okay. If I did exactly what holly is about to say my business will improve. What can they do today to improve their business? Certainly I mean there. Donald products were all about helping practices with safety happiness and efficiency. So the main goal I would say is just taking this time this time to clean out get organized in Gulf shores and cultural your cabinet get expired materials pushed out I mean again. It's an unfortunate situation that we're people are not able to see you patience. But I think you should utilize this time for growth and really dig in as much as you can get organized and get a system in place. I mean. We're GONNA eventually going to reopen and it's GonNa be hard hitting I mean. Certainly People Wanna get their teeth cleaned. I had an appointment right before this and everything shut down and I can't wait to get in. I mean it's getting those systems in place to really make sure that you're ready at year. Efficient team will be happy at lower those stress levels for staff and patients That would be my main thing and of course again dessert. Donald Products and other shameless plug. We have our caller method which is a great way to Color Code and get organized and be ready so breakdown to be really quick. What is the color code and and the method so right now if I have the free time what should I be doing with that? Yeah certainly so we have a staff. We have our sales staff that have clinical backgrounds. They each have a boat. Twenty years of clinical background and so working with one of them to holding and with that kind of consists of is that we have the Resin products that have antimicrobial inside of them. It's it's not like coding of any sort but it's actually in the injection moulding inside of the material so it box any type of mold or bacterial growth which is fantastic but Beyond that there's trays. We have instrument holders everything is color coded to the point of making it easy for everyone. So if you have a crown and bridge that you're wanting to do everything. Is that in the pink tab the pink trae and the pink insert and holder. So you're not guessing or anything is it's all available to you. Pull IT ready to go. It has a locking cover on top locking cover on top of the top and the TRAE. Everything's covered safe from It's really the best way to kind of push forward to get that efficiency and overall just a great atmosphere feeling even for the patient. I mean the stuff is colorful. It's bright it's welcoming. It's kind of the route to go. And that's been that saying We can that on your website right. The color coding and really quick other shameless plug guys. I believe Holly has in case you are interested in search. You have a special offer deal. Yeah we got a little something going on. So essentially we're really wanting to help practices be as efficient as they can win. This reopen happens and We know people not practicing at this moment with Overhead costs. I mean. It's it's going to be tough and we're kind of Pushing forward with an organized. Now pay later option but we want you to take this time get organized get the color methods Sutton play. Become the most efficient practice you can. And we'll defer the payment and Tau November twenty twenty. So kiss anybody's interested in like they're listening to like those are coded then. Now is the time so awesome? We'll talk about that a little bit later but right now these next questions are just again to the head of someone who isn't totally involved and the clinical side of dentistry every single day on the day to day. What would you holly like to see more from a dentist? Oh absolutely definitely a patient. Involvement that interaction With patients I know usually when I go in you know you sit down and say hey John as you get to know your hygienists really well I mean there with you most of the time and the dentist POPs in checks your teeth and pops right back out but I think it's great to maybe take an extra minute or two and really converse with them. Show them your system and your passion about your practice. I mean you've you're there you're opening it. It's exciting. I mean. Share that experience with them and market yourselves like here our system. This is what we're doing. This is how this works. I mean get them interested. It's definitely something that I've never experienced and I think it's it's worth doing to come back with the patient to connect with them to take the time right like to get them to conversation. Yeah to see about their lives a little bit more. I agree I feel like sometimes we tend to try and rush it right because we wanna see more new patients but I feel like that's more of a thinking wider mindset instead of more of like in-depth like let's get more from this patient in the sense of what their Abou- who their front where they're from who they are and in return. I mean everybody knows somebody so they might refer you somebody right in return and so forth but you're building a deeper relationship with them beyond just like teeth make sense. I liked that certainly absolutely And then right now Ali. What do you hate or dislike about dentistry? Oh that's a good one I would say to not sell yourself short as a dental practice. Take Pride in your brand awareness. I mean you are a business and connecting with the community and putting it your branding out there I know we do a lot of imprinted insurance retainer boxes that we see come through and Before I started at Donald Product. We just did that text on these boxes while now I mean we've come into the twenty first century and we are printing full color logos on these things and full capability of that printing style. And we still see a huge amount of them. Come through with. Just touchstone them. I mean you gotta you definitely have to be your own advocate. I'm in push yourself and get a logo created and and put that out there. It's worth it. Do you feel like that's getting better now. Or It's getting the same or worse. How do you see that? It's probably about the same. We've had a couple of comes through that extra. I've taken kind of upon myself got. I'll see it's just a text and I'll look up their website and I see a beautiful logo and it's like. Oh Man so. I'll usually send a little sample of what it would look like printed just for them to see and that usually entices them to change their change their order the next time around. So take pride in those logos and what you've built your passion overall. Do you feel like sometimes people are like I mean who who really going to see the logo right or like to you actually. Holly what's the definition of a logo to you? Oh Another good one. Cut me off. Guard there I guess it's something that represents your business. Obviously that's kind of an obvious answer but there's definitely more meaningful behind it. I mean anytime. You're shopping as a consumer. I mean not just visiting a dental practice I mean packaging and different things. Kinda catch your eye and I mean certainly with my creative background. I tend to go a little bit. Probably further in my mind of what these things mean or why it looks that way but yeah I think again it. Just kinda backstop your brand awareness and your voice really Dacha rebrand awareness your voice so it's super important to to kind of already have before you're making the logo to have like a your mission statement or your values really your voice right and then that's your so that makes sense. Then what what you say because if you are hiding your brand it's Kinda like you're hiding your voice right certainly. Yeah Oh get it out there. Shot it up the rooftops so then to you. Where have you seen the most effective places where people can put their logo on? Oh that's a good one two. We know with the social media marketing. That's really easy to push it out. There it's free. You've put it on instagram. Your facebook Obviously we do like the venture retainer boxes. That's a kind of brainer. I mean if you have someone with a retainer or mouthguard I mean that's certainly an easy way to get your advertising out there for free if you're giving those away Yeah that's kind of our name here at dental products so then zirk how did how did they do it? How did they I guess? Use Your logo as a voice our logo you're saying Yeah No I mean we try to brand everything that we can. I mean from our high-volume section with Mr Thirsty. It's branded right on there. And as well as our crystal HD mirrors we have zirk right on the front of them but again even beyond just the physical drying or digital logo itself. I mean it's the whole aspect of the feeling and the brand awareness. So it's it's colorful. It's eye catching. It's it's different than most dental advertising out there so I think it definitely sets us apart so I was just keep that in mind again the whole your voice and what you want to put out there. I mean we're a fun friendly company and I think it really reflects in those colors and Canada overall organization that we like to promote man. I agree one hundred percent. I think it's more like if we were to look at Holly. Would we know and like a dental conference? She's with zirk right. And it can either be because of the way you talk about Cirque or what. You're wearing or something so. I think it's the same thing like if we were to look at you practice owner right. Do they know you or your team. Works for your practice. And if you're if people are y never heard about that practice the you need to be. You need to have more brand awareness right so people know about your practice for foremost. But they're like Oh you know what I you look like that you look like a dentist who works here or you look like you work for. Holly's practice right. It's like yeah I to me because you're out and so I think yeah you're right. It goes beyond. I think that's a good question. I always ask yourself like. Just walk around with people know that you know what I mean because it goes beyond just like almost the logo. It's more like hey. Are you talking about your brand? Are you showing your brand? Are you doing everything you can with your brand and then that's where you can ask yourself? Yes or no I mean you can tell yourself yesterday now right so late. Yeah let it for rush. I mean it's a part of you and get it out there What do you love about dentist? She right now has afraid now with everything going on. I guess just the sense of community and we're all in this together. I mean I know that. It's Kinda that stereotypical cheesy answer at the moment. But it's really interesting to see the support that everybody has been giving. I mean different online forums and social media and just communication even with those A manufacturer manufacturer to the end user and Yeah just support and communication and really putting it out. There of how practices can help each other. When it's time to reopen and then to you what needs to change for you or like the general population to be more open to dentistry. Now I know like things might be a little bit different. Now right people might start seeing dentistry a bit more essential especially because now but I know before in the past people are like. Oh the dentist I gotta go. You know. They have like that little. Guess right what do you think? It's a change in order for people to stop doing that. It'd be more open to it. Yeah I think just the patient experience and in general I mean the overall atmosphere of practice. I mean if you're personable and taking that time to communicate with your patient and I kinda reiterate the the reopen of what you're doing for them and kind of going beyond just are okay. Your teeth look good byes in six months if thing just taking that that little bit of extra time with them is totally worth it. She's taking a little extra time to you. How much time is too much time Wow here in Minnesota we have the Minnesota goodbye with relaxed from forty. Five minutes to two hours. I mean obviously you kinda now you gotta you gotTa Communicate. See where people are at. Some people are sharers. They like to over share. They liked To talk a lot and you kinda just have to know when to cut it out there I feel like there's a sensor feeling When you kind of need to close things up but there's people that don't like to share and I think it's just kinda gauging where you're at with people. Some people are going to accept it. One hundred percent appreciate it and some people are going to be like. Why are you telling me there's some I think you'll just have to engage with how people are feeling and I think that's definitely going to be a thing for reopening as well of gauging people because again the whole safety factor and there's Pin Democrats. It's scary and I think just making sure they're comfortable as much as possible. Also definitely Kinda gauging it out I'm ready and then talk to me about cirque. What are you guys doing right now? How are you guys helping out? Dentist what are you guys got going on? Let me know yes. Certainly I mean. Of course our mission is help. Dental teams achieve safety happiness efficiency like I inside and our expertise is just vast. I mean we've been in business for fifty years and producing an extensive line products that help elevate the patient experience and improve infection control and just overall getting organized. And I think it's a great time to do it and Again with Aris old kind of being on the forefront of everybody's mind we have an innovative isolation evacuation products like Mr steeper the high volume and think puddle for our low volume creating just an overall easier working environment for dentists and their staff as well as just comfortable patient experience and I think just trying to make sure that anxiety is kind of a common aspect. I feel like for patients. And now it's going to be even more heightened with this pandemic so I mean I think it's time to change it and you know our resin based products per caller method or A great attractive way to keep organized and keep things colorful at your side deal. I mean it can be scary to see anything beyond that. I mean making sure that things are cleaned up and prompt and good to go with a simple way to create a peace of mind for patients and their visit. You give that the warm fuzzy feelings during during their but Do you feel like You mentioned the colors right As far as the. That's a big thing. Do you feel like that has A sort of impact on the patients the colors that you guys use. Oh Yeah It's like a shot. It's kind of an atmosphere and I mean even goes beyond that. It's kind of a cognitive thing. I mean if you kind of think about it that stainless steel the instruments against like a stainless steel tray or even the instrument holders the cassette some kind of like clanking and whatnot. I mean it can be a little frightful for people so that our resin kinda products kind of eliminate that factor and They stay looking sharp through sterilization process. I know sometimes a stainless steel can get more oxidized looking and kind of have a dingy look to So I think it helps a lot gone. I think so too. I feel like Now it's more than just like you know I mean Gone Yup right or gone. Google and you'll see people nobody ever talks about and we mentioned this a lot like A. Oh my Gosh my number four on the cavity this came out and then the shadings little. Nobody says that they're like Oh. My Gosh. This office is old like back in the nineteen hundreds or you know what I mean. They're like this is the worst experience or they'll talk about paint rate or whatever where they might say. Good things right like this is like futuristic. This is the best I felt so calm. I felt so relaxed. It's the experience that people talk about. And so if the stuff that you use on the day to day to make profit right just the function if you use that stuff on the day to day already but you can utilize it to create a better experience at the same time now doing to you know what I mean like. Now you're now or talk in an hour talking because it's like I feel that's why like cirque because I feel like you guys have kind of utilized the stuff that we have to use right like fourteen knife spoon knife right. We gotta use the stuff to eat but you a way to make it. We're GONNA use a four expert or knife making enjoyable for the doctor and the dentists but at the same time we get a better experience for the consumer or the patient or the prison eating right so to me. I think. That's that's that's awesome. You know what I mean so I appreciate what he's doing so if anybody's interested Holly. Where can people find you? Can People get more information on?

Why just vacation in the Caribbean when you can go on an adventure with Royal Caribbean. Come seek at Royal Caribbean dot com ships registry Bahamas. Hello. And welcome to save her. I'm Gary, and I'm Laurin Bogle bomb and today we're talking about alligator. Yes. Yes. We are. Because you didn't know you can eat alligator. Absolutely. Some of you might be questioning why? But we'll go. And just for like fun setup story. My cousin wrestled an alligator to save his dog a couple years ago. My goodness. Did what was the dog saved? I like. For all. Like, you would have led off with your cousin coming to a tragic end. I probably wouldn't have included story. Yeah. Yes. Both cousin Dogar. Okay. He does have a pretty massive like scarring on this side like scratch or bite or like by. Oh, dang. Hey. Yeah. He's. He's a wrestler. He's tall guy. Also, he lives in Florida. If you're wondering where he encountered this gator. It wasn't Atlanta. If it had been it would have something serious would have been wrong going on into Lanka. That's fascinating fascinating story. Also because it keeps coming up because I keep bringing it up Scooby doo on zombie island. There's a character called snake bike Scruggs who is a gator Wrangler. And he's I'm Mark Hamill. If I didn't trust in you, and and Mark Hamill, I would start to think that you were making things up. So that you could keep talking about Scooby doo on zombie island. I mean, that's not. Below me. But this is true in us like one of my favorite characters because he's got all his voice, so tough. And you know, caters everywhere, it's it's quite the film. I I believe you about that as well. Perfect. I can't wait to watch it. Also, I happen to have a favorite alligator in her name is lefty. Yeah. And she lives in a national park in Gulf shores, Alabama. Oh, she lost a Pau o the Park Rangers caller lefty. Well, I I don't personally have a favorite alligator. But I'm I'm glad you'll have to introduce me some time. Oh, I will. She's tough though. Oh, I believe you. You always wanna keep keep a good distance. Oh, I feel that way about most alligators thought what you've got most animals, honestly. But especially Gators. Yes. Alligators are by the way, these state reptile of Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi. Oh, wow. I'm relatively well. Acquainted with them. I did grow up for a while in south Florida. I'll also I went to the university of Florida, the mascot of witches the gator the Gators. Yes. Yeah. Big chopping. Yeah. Yeah. It is great to be a Florida gator or so they told me that's that's the chance I can feel the enthusiasm and school spirit. Well, I mean, you know, I I wasn't wasn't on the football team. So it's yeah. Oh, yeah. And feel good. I didn't have that much of a. Yeah. Okay. Can it? Sure. My mom went to the other one Florida look at his state university. Yes. So does that make his enemies? Are we rivals? Yeah. Oh, no end of podcast. I must've been dry mom school. Always knew it would end like this. Through state mascots, and we'll not I also wasn't into football. So I went to one game my entire college career. I did have fun. I went to I went to one as well. It was a homecoming game, which I think should count extra but two points. Yeah. Right. Totally. Okay. Yes. Anyway, I'm also went to Auburn is the same colors as the Florida gate it. Oh, intrigue abounds. Also, this headline. Yeah. Texas. Great grandmother shoots. Twelve foot gator as revenge for killing many horse. Wow. That is quite the headline to come up when you're researching a food podcast that is there was some strange reading for this episode. Absolutely. And that brings us to our question. Alligator. What is it? This is a fun one. I I love I love these animal episodes because it's always like what completely fascinating and beautiful creatures also tasty. When you deep fry it. There's something very odd about reading just. Oh, wow. It's this huge huge animal. But also, it's an restaurants. You know? Yeah. Yeah. Respect where your food comes from. Yes. And yes. So an alligator it's a big old apex predator? Reptile long jaaz along thick body and a long tail all powerful and better suited to water than land. Because its legs are a little bit stubby w legs. There are two existing species of alligator there in the crock Diliah family, and the genus name is alligator there's the Chinese species classification, alligator sinensis and the American classification alligator, Mississippi and SIS. Yes. That's it that American alligator can grow to about eight to fifteen feet and can weigh about three hundred to a thousand pounds for our metric friends that's about two and a half to four and a half meters. And one hundred fifty two four hundred fifty kilos. Not small. No, no bigger than me. The Chinese alligator is usually about half that size, and they usually in general live in the wild about forty years out of known to live to about twice that age in captivity. Wow. Because they are reptiles they have they have scales. The Chinese alligator has thick armored scales all over its body. The American is a softer on its belly. And they lay eggs, and they are crap at regulating their body temperature. They tend to live in warm freshwater wetlands where they can sunbathe on land to warm up and then cooled off in the water in the states. That's a mainly coastal areas of Texas through North Carolina. And they are opportunistic eaters, which I think also describes both of us would agree in in the case of alligators. It means. They don't usually expend energy like actively hunting. But we'll just sorta wait kind of stealthily for prey to come along. Whatever pray that might be. They have around eighty teeth. They don't chew with them though. They just rip and and their teeth will fall out and are replaced as they wear down. Terrifying. Yeah. They can also I love this bit. They can store. Excess calories in the form of fat reserves at the base of their tails and thus survived for like up to two years without eating. That's like the long con of waiting somebody out two years. They'll get comfortable. But then I straight. Oh, man. I feel like you just really felt like seen by allegations. Maybe maybe I do like a good revenge tale, this is not a bad horror movie. It needs to be. Oh, right. Get on it. It's like jaws, you know. The son or daughter of jaws and the next movie is. Just like that. Exactly. What we need it with Gators. Yes. Very important one of my favorites. Male Gators announce they are ready to mate with a Bello Bello. If a very serious Bello. I don't know if we can I don't know if we can get one for the show. But if we if we can find one it's gonna go right here. But yeah, no, they like alligators definitely chatter with each other. Yes, they're social creatures. This is the best research a yeah. They're one of the only reptiles that actively cares for their young for like two years after hatching and other than the biggest males and females which tend to be solitary. They often hang out in groups called congregations. Oh, but they also eat sharks. Like smaller sharks the shock. So now, we get a crossover movie, right? We've got revenge. Gator and revenge Cirque. Who crossover potentials very important when you're trying to sell movie these days, that's what I hear. I think we should not even air this part. We should get this. No thought of this before this is a golden goose lead by. Oh, I would watch that movie. I'd be ashamed of myself after probably but watch it. That's okay. You know as long as there's good snacks. That's true. Many pl-. Okay. Okay. I cannot plan a menu for this movie. That does not exist. Hunting alligators tends to be restricted in the United States, and it's generally illegal in China where they are endangered. Most alligator meat comes from farmed. Alligators often, the eggs are collected from wild nests and then hatched and raised on gator ranches, which is a great phrase, the Ed collection is also restricted. I mean, not that. I think that most people would like get it into their heads to go knock over gator nest for funsies, but hope not goodness. No laws do differ by state, but farmers who collect wild eggs generally have to release a certain percentage of hatchlings back into the wild. Once they're a couple years old. The Gators eaten. In restaurants, are usually farm raised and two to four feet long about one meter when they're killed. But some folks hunt Gators up to thirteen feet long almost four meters and freeze the meat and eat it all year long in the you have to have a license and tax hunt. Gator in the state legally part of the license requires that you harvest all Gators that you catch if you don't sell it noncommercial hunters are only permitted to hunt during the month of September the me offense halted and preserved and skin is used at boots belts and wallets in Florida Gators caught south of the the portion of I seventy five that runs east to west across the top of the Everglades Gators caught south of that cannot legally be sold for me because of the mercury levels in the water. Ooh, thanks humans that portion of ice, by the way is generally called alligator alley. Oh, yeah. And some alligator ranches also function as tourist spots. ES? You can pet baby Gators their ES. I have done that. Did you have the time of your life anytime that it gets to pet animal? It's my best day. Yes. And especially like, I really love reptiles because they're so smooth. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, well, the word again. From the Spanish word L, Garth Bo, meaning the lizard make sense. And if we're talking about the taste like chicken. Yeah. Yeah. You've had alligator right? I have most times it's has been fried and chicken like maybe a bit tougher game year. Yeah. And I've read that in in texture it's like Dr chicken, but in taste, it's more like white meat. I saw it described in food and wine as a love child between grouper and chicken. And I did have blackened alligator tail in savannah. And I would agree. I would agree with that assessment. Yeah. Yeah. Some sort of like a spring year flakier chicken, kind of I think I've I think I've only ever had it like fried and like little like alligator bite like nugget forums. Yeah. But yeah, that's good. I've I've read that it can be a lot like a veal. Oh, really if you're into that. There's a few cuts of alligator meat that are popular the tail contains these four cylinders of muscles running down the length of it sometimes called tenderloins which can be sliced crosswise into cutlets. There's a cut from the back of body like a like up behind the legs sometimes called the sirloin. The cheeks can be eaten out you woulda pork or fish jowls. The forelegs are eaten called wings. They look like the chicken wing flats. Whoa. Oh, yeah. And there's meat on the ribs in Louisiana alligators. Eating and Stu sauteed grunted, a sausage. I feel like you and been had alligator jerky on snack stuff. Yeah. I mean, it tasted like jerky is that like generally the consensus because you had a lot of types of jerky on that show. Jonathan strickland. Brought us like a batch of of weird jerky one time, and it was just jerky for days. Like there was. I mean, but yeah. At a certain point, I think this one did have a little bit more of that of that texture that I'm talking about that kind of like springing, but once you put jerky seasoning into something. It's that's what that's the flavor. It's Turkey jerky. Yeah. Well, people do eat it in all these various braids a restaurant. We didn't get to go to. But was highly recommended to us while we were in New Orleans, Jack Imos of looking at their menu. And there's something on there called alligators cheesecake, I am equal parts dubious and curious. I'm so interested in what that is apparently around New Orleans. Many families have a personal horseradish sauce recipe to accompany their family gator. I've heard telev- alligators sushi. Oh my goodness. I know. Well, I don't know if it was raw or cooked. Well, if anyone knows please write in. Yeah. In florida. I read the most popular part of the gator is the ribs over in China. Alligators are associated with myths about like fierce, but benevolent earth dragons, some historians think that alligators were a basis of some of these myths and alligator meat is thought by some to have positive. Health benefits for those associated reasons? It is rarely eaten these days because the species is in danger. But when it is it might show up as a stakes in rice bowls or in soups. Yup. And what about the nutrition alligator is a it's it's a pretty good meat. It's a it's super high in protein, pretty low in fat and cholesterol. And that's because unlike in mammals, which tend to have fat marbled through the muscle, the fat and alligator is mostly between the muscles and the skin three ounces of a tail cut has thirty nine grams of protein and only four grams of fat of that's a if that's dietary thing that you're looking for then. Yeah. There you go. If we look at the numbers the American alligator was once on the endangered species list. But now holds the no concern label Louisiana produces the most alligator meat in the United States and demand for gator has gone up in the past several years. Doubling the price. Ice from about six dollars a pound to about thirteen dollars, a pound perhaps more so than most other meats, it's suffers during economic hardships outside of that region. Oh, yeah. Definitely. Oh. And keep in mind that six to thirteen bucks a pound. That's wholesale. Gator meat can cost upwards of twenty bucks a pound retail. But yes, very volatile market and the market for alligator skin goes hand in hand with gator meat because it's it's bigger. The alligators can market is bigger. Hide can go for twenty to forty dollars per foot. Ooh. As a twenty fifteen the seventeen farms in Florida sold one point seven million dollars in meat and six point eight million dollars in hides during the recession in the twenty ought some farmers stopped collect gags to hatch entirely because the market for leather dip, so hard as a the market for luxury goods was dipping writes gator is a popular choice during lint as in. Okay. Meet up shin for Friday's because it counts as seafood, which really cracks me up. I guess I mean, they listen to the water a bunch. I guess it was up for some debate so much. So that the archbishop of New Orleans was asked about it in a letter pinned in twenty ten and he responded thusly. Yes. The alligators considered in the fish family, and I agree with you Cording to the writer, God has created a magnificent creature that is important to the state of the week. And it is. -sidered seafood. Well, there you have it. Archbishop can argue and it is a fun rabbit hole. The planning restaurants have to do in Galilee communities around increase demand for seafood during lint New Orleans is just about the best place to be during lint, which is supposed to be about deprivation in the words of archbishop, quite frankly, and I can say this because I'm from New Orleans having to fulfil this law are this guideline of absence of meat on Fridays. Is a no sacrifice whatsoever. That's the reality. In Louisiana over three hundred thousand alligators are harvested every year valued at some thirty three million dollars. Uh-huh. Singing alligator on menus outside of the south is somewhat of a rarity though. And because of that it is sometimes described as one of the last truly local foods, I kind of enjoy. Yeah. Yeah. But the alligator has a long and interesting history. Yes. And we will get into that. As soon as we get back from a quick break for word from our sponsor.

Thank you sponsor. Yes. Thank you. Okay. So the alligator the specific species has been around about one hundred and fifty million years hall. Yeah. They outlasted their dinosaur relatives. Okay. Well, good for them. So pretty old. They're doing pretty good job surviving eating alligator, though is a bit more recent. And as you might as you might imagine from the creatures terrifying visage is born of necessity. I've actually read from Forber alligator poacher that it is easier to run an alligator ranch than a cattle ranch. But that being said, nah, likely alligator would not be my first choice if I saw a lineup of animals rights. Yeah. Nope. Either. No, a native Americans in. What is now northern Florida where hunting and eating alligator a time before? Europeans got over here. Maybe like four thousand years or so the Tamukua living along the northeastern coast of the Gulf of Mexico would smoke gator to preserve it. And I read a Louisiana Choctaw legend about alligator. Can we do a little a little legend break? Always cool. Okay. Yeah. So the tail is about this hunter who comes upon an alligator dying of thirst. And he helps the alligator get to water and afterward. The gator tells him how to hunt deer, you know. Like don't go for the young ones. Don't go for the mothers. But the ones that were old and had lived useful lives. There's an emphasis in the story on on greeting and thanking the animals and that giving the hunter greater power and the story ends with the hunter telling the story to his people. And it says that that those who understood the alligators. Wisdom and followed its teachings would become great hunters and never go hungry. That's a pretty good legend break. Yeah. European settlers were most likely eating alligator in Louisiana in the eighteen hundreds. It was being consumed in the southern United States by the mid eighteen hundreds four sure at one time alligator meat was believed to be medicinal. And it still is by some particularly for asthma and the common cold, the scales were once thought to cure syphilis. As European colonists. Forced native Americans in what's now, southern Florida down into the Everglades in the eighteen. Hundreds those native Americans learned to hunt alligators to those were the Seminole and miccosukee tribes, and yeah, they they learned to hunt alligators and incorporated them into their cuisine the traditional methods that they developed to catch. Alligators are sometimes performed for tourists to this day. It's sold as being alligator wrestling. But I mean, it's really just like alligator don't bite me. That's basically what it is. I mean, it's very impressive. I don't mean to undersell. Oh, no. This is the thing that I have also seen. I'm like legitimately nervous. And yes land you thinking about even this like four floors up like in Santa sound like somehow I'm gonna turn around. Gator looking in the window. I. Stubby Paul is is does. I think I think we're safer now who good colonists. In Florida started hunting alligators game and for their hides as well a bit later in the eighteen hundreds and this started to be when alligator populations started dwindling, and that was exacerbated when alligator skin became a really hot fashion trend in France in the late eighteen fifties. And then further again when the confederates turned to alligator leather for shoes and saddles during the civil war. This is also around when industrial leather tanning technology developed, so so the boom on alligator skin was driven by that as well. It was kind of like a Gators were in the wrong place. Wrong time kind of thing. Yeah. Some folks were eating alligator eggs by the nineteen hundreds. And this brings us to one of the most super depressing. Parts of this episode. An article from the Washington Times published in nineteen came with a story about a zookeeper in New York who sent to black children into an enclosure twenty-five alligators and crocodiles purportedly to the entertainment of the patrons. And to lead the reptiles to a different enclosure. In the words of the zookeeper. The gator had quote epicure in fondness for the black man. There's no indication in the article that the zookeeper ever faced any punishment or any negative language around his actions at all time magazine reported on a similar thing. In one thousand twenty Florida black babies being used as bait for hunters looking to kill some alligators with no intention of saving the children. The Miami New times had a similar article and in one thousand nine hundred nineteen the Richmond times dispatch reported on it with more concern for the alligators than the children in alligator eating a black baby was a float in nineteen o to parade in Saint Louis and some storylines read these. As as as jokes. But even so that's pretty despicable. Yeah. Yeah. That's the worst. It is. It is hard to say whether these were real events that happened or just particularly cruel fictions that were designed for white audiences with ugly thoughts about people of color during this period of American history. Like, really unblinking racism was considered fashionably titillating in some circles. It's where some stuff like a like a lot of HP lovecraft s- work comes from which you know, has many admirable qualities, but it's also just racist. Af. So yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Others that there's there's that. Back to alligator populations by nineteen sixty two the population of wild. Alligators was so low in the United States less than one hundred thousand that Florida outlawed hunting them a national law would be passed in nineteen sixty seven and those laws. It's considered one of the most successful wildlife. Preservation attempts ever by nineteen eighty-seven alligators were removed from the endangered species list and the following year. Florida began issuing limited hunting licenses limited funds from the permits. Do go towards a gator conservation and the population in Florida is now over one point three million. It's pretty decent. Yeah. Over in China by the nineteen ninety s the hunting of alligators for food, and as vermin as farm started encroaching on their wetlands hit a really scary peak, the largest population at the time was a single pond that had eleven alligators that was surrounded by rice, patties and. Video rental shop. Yeah. There were fewer than one hundred thirty alligators. Total in the wild with work. There are now larger populations in captivity. But they are still considered endangered. There's about ten thousand total with more being hatched every year. Though. There are concerns with such a small pool a of inbreeding causing genetic problems down the line. Yeah. Sure. By two thousand six though some restaurants had started serving olym-, it'd amounts farm raised alligator in China. Anyone in China right in? No, yeah. Yeah. It was apparently like a big like kind of fashion like. Ooh, right. Yeah. Yeah. Meanwhile, back in the states Katrina 's damage to Louisiana wetlands did severely impact wild alligator breeding grounds. The oil spill wouldn't wouldn't help either. No, no. And then for some mysterious reason the history channel has a series called swamp. People about people in Louisiana who hunt Gators lots of not so great things happened on that show, including a cast member getting arrested for selling alligator meat illegally. It's been called out by Dominic Monaghan. No less. Okay. But others to for glorifying the killing of animals and demonizing alligators. It started in two thousand ten and yet still running during perhaps its peak popularity around twenty thirteen to twenty fifteen. Yeah. It drove popularity and prices of alligator meat like way up like prices doubled in those in that two year period. And a few other related shows have popped up as well. Gator boys. On animal planet starting in two thousand twelve and growing up gator in two thousand fourteen. See I would love growing up gator was about like being in a UF family university of Florida. And then, but you know, you can't you don't wanna go there. And it's all big lie, and you to find out the way to tell you. See I would watch that show. That sounds like a good show. Not not none of this nonsense. Oh in in two thousand fifteen amid that boom some alligator ranches experienced theft. What's data crime wash these stole some one thousand one hundred eggs in a single heist worth around sixty six thousand dollars. Oh my goodness. We need to do a whole like miniseries on food heist. I am in in a 2017, the Florida fish and wildlife conservation commission revealed a two year undercover sting to catch poachers. Mostly Valla Gators, but other wild and protected species as well, they wound up arresting nine people, including racketeering charges like criminal organization, wo four of those people one of the defendants said that the sting didn't even scratch the surface. What's but others say that the worst of the charged crimes were only committed because the undercover officers like go to them into it like entrapment? Oh, so wow. Yeah. I haven't read it follow up. But. Intrigue. No so much intrigue. Kinda reminds me of the rescuers down under with crocodiles. But is that whole poacher thing? I just watch that very recently so fresh on my brain. Oh, man. In two thousand eighteen a clean by gator hunter. And chef that Gators destroying the wetlands, and that's hunting them was a good thing. Was deep monks. Bring it up because it circulated enough that there's a snoops entry about it. You know popped up in a lot of the results. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, you know, in certain areas, certainly I I think that they can be considered like vermin like that need to be controlled better. Yeah. Oh, well, this has been quite we have covered a lot of ground in this at the set. We have oh goodness. We've got a little bit more for you.

Absolutely Peggy wrote I was born and raised in south, Louisiana. I am loving this series based New Orleans. I didn't learn how to make Gumbo until after I married. The first time my ex mother in law is a Cajun granny as we call her makes the best Gumbo in the world. She doesn't cook with the recipe. But it always tastes the same. Delicious to me Gumbo. Always tastes better. The second day. The flavor seems to intensify. So when I do make it it is always the day before we also like to serve Gumbo with potato salad. I like to eat a little potato salad in my combo. I know granny makes her route in a black cast iron Skillet and adds it to her water ten minutes before she serves her Gumbo. She snips green onions tops and chopped fresh parsley. I now live in Minnesota. And brought my Cajun cooking skills with me. Oh that sounds does. Oh. Oh, Genucel wrote I just listened to your episode on kit Kat bars, which by the way are my very favorite chocolate bar, but only the classic forefinger bar. You revealed that the inner shock oh layer is in fact, partly made up of ground up kit, Kat bars that didn't make the cut for sale that reminded me of my summer job during undergrad where I worked at a wafer cookie factory away for cookies are those rectangular cookies that have three layers of away for with two layers of sugary cream like filling and the common flavors are vanilla strawberry or chocolate. The are not exciting cookies and that always disappointed people when they heard what type of cookie factory, I was working at the time. So I'm a little disturbed to find out that kit cats, my favorite chocolate bar, basically, the same thing. Anyway for those wafer cookies like kit, Kat bars. There was a certain amount of what was termed rejoined who that was mixed in the filling part the re grind would be from wafer cookies where the layers separated had bubbles were cut wrong or packaged wrong and could not be sold. There was an entire job consisted of going around all day long gathering up all the unsatisfactory wafer cookies grinding them up and delivering them to the bakers to include in the mixing. I thought it was really gross when I started working there. But I got used to it really fast. And yes, we were allowed to eat unlimited cookies while at work, although for me that only lasted a couple of days at the start of each summer fun. Interesting summer job, right? Wafer cookie factors. Yeah. Oh, I mean, I love that. It's somebody's entire task is like more. These unsatisfied back on gooky. Yeah. Eh night. And I love that. Like this. This kind of cookie cannibalism is like a known factor. I know in in cookie baking cookies. What a way to put it. Well. Thanks to both of them for writing in if you'd like to write to us.

"Working interferences is intended for mature audiences since the hosts never grew up someone needs to be the adult. Welcome to working interferences with Josh and the dental acclaimed podcasts for the average dentist. Here is Josh lanes. What is working? Brexit's podcast. It didn't vice show. I'm Joshua Austin, and I am lands Timmerman Lance. There's so much. There's some nights that we get ready to have this show, and what are we going to spend the next forty five minutes talking about. Uh-huh. Well, we seem to fill it probably works out. And then there's nights like tonight where we have, like so much stuff to get to. Yeah. And so normally we have this kind of foreplay where we bullshit, about something and like this weekend, my notes, I have just like jump right in question one like right at the beginning make sense. And then I log on to read it. And I see at the top of the news, under several of NBA. Paul Pierce admits to crapping his pants in the NBA finals against the Lakers and Flickinger knee injury. To go to the bathroom. I wanna spend a ton of time on this. No, we don't have time. Lance hoops, I shit my pants. L roker. Yeah. I mean like. The KMart commercial and wiser, it Paul Pierce doing cameos in these things. Wow. I this is revelatory. I remember that game you here's I remember he came back in that game. And starting like just buckets just nail in buckets in, I remember like man, this is like some Willis Reed stuff wasn't commando. The what did they say the rest of the had to take the Android off the bench commando? I'm assuming they have like the bicycle shorts kind of. Like I land. Pressured shorts or wherever I'm assuming they have plenty of those in the locker room. I'm going to accuse to believe he was commando just Fremont at the whole app. Maybe he was. Maybe I mean who am I to say in? I mean if he had a good game after that. Why not just keep doing that? Exactly. It's your lucky charm, I'm literally packing right now for the Gulf Coast conference. Oh, doing Friday. And my rule is is that a New England? I know it's in Gulf shores, Alabama. Oh, so it's not just a clever name. Yes. No. I've decided to put put any abortion of jokes that I normally make I'm not going to do, though. No kidding. I don't I don't have any of those in my in my set. I've is lacking. Yes. Does not not yet. None none. Nist. No worship jokes. I always packed him. Any underwear? Just be like you just don't know, right? Like you just never know. And so this sort of seeing that separate it makes me like oh, yeah. All right. That's like I'm doing the right thing. I kid you on. You want. So I feel like Paul Pierce is now retake sort of legendary working interference a status just from this. I we need to dive into this, again, during the summer, I'm sure, we will have some some slow points, where we can really dissect the because we should be able to find footage of this on YouTube. Yeah. And we can hamburger Jones zapruder film, this, these alternate angles and whatnot of this footage, so that we can see this. But I think we you know, we really have to get to the the week. Yeah. Yeah, I just want to talk about Paul Pierce, now lives. This isn't advice show the night, it is. We answer your questions. We answered questions refined on all those neat little Facebook groups. We answer questions from Reddit Denison, dill team members at their own unique brand, vice so please, we need your questions. They are the sustenance. We crave gets your questions to working in a for instance. Humil- edgy. Mel dot com now. We don't want just any question. Do we Lance keeping in mind that we have a sponsor this week, and we have to do quick turnaround on the show? We're not interested in those, no nine pissed simple questions, we don't want about going questions, like who's the greatest NBA finals comeback story of all time, because we all know is Paul Pierce, baby. The greatest NBA finals comeback story ever. We want the questions that Gordon christianson cannot answer listener one carry. Asks seems like working interferences has a wild topic to discuss. Didn't want to talk about this. I didn't either but I probably got ten to fifteen different messages texts. Emails people with the same sentiments Kerry. And as Jalen rose would say, on the Jalen and Jacoby podcast. Got to give the people give the people what they want or I'm hard pressed not to I mean I. I'm going to handle this with kid gloves a little bit, Lance. I think you probably was well, I it's, it's the wise thing to do. But I feel like we need you. Give some sort of just play by play here. Sure. Yeah. I think there is some lack of perspective. And that's why the whining continues is because they don't see while we'll get into that, because I think that's the meat of the of the it's the media beaten potatoes. But for anybody who is mentally healthy and stable and does not take the dental Facebook world both of his seriously as some people do. So last week, there were some questions about something called the dental profit academy. I didn't know what the DPA was dental profit academy was apparently was a group of people resent of, I guess, a website resource a hub of information that was sold as a lifetime subscription by Dr a Nissan homes of Jamaica. If you don't know who Nissan homes is yesterday. On stage. Oh, I, I may have heard that as well. But I don't have hard fast information that she did. Indeed or did not pass gas on stage ones. Again, I don't have confirmation of that. She runs. She has a podcast called delivering. Wow. She has a vast Facebook groups. I don't know if I would call it a kingdom. What's under a kingdom feifdom? Yeah. But she's like a leash. Lowered of occur. Delivering. Wow, fiefdom I guess fail. Yes. That's exactly right. And so she has the sort of devotees acolytes these sort of Seth go. Dan, esque glowers. Yeah. And so they kind of are all in on her and in her, I think, quote, unquote tribe, is, is what she refers to these ads. The Dallas Ma apologised. Yeah. Try what you know, whatever you wanna call. And so she also had this. Dental profit academy, which was sold. I guess some number of years ago through two three four years, he talked to as a lifetime membership. So few hundred dollars whatever and you were supposed to have a lifetime access to the information held in this dental profit academy was only it was that the only way that memberships zeal. Yeah. This one time package lifetime access to all of the information held within, what that information was. No, I was not a member. Apparently some point last week, they decided in a niece and her and her fiefdom over which she's leisure. Lord. I just like saying that Lee Lord. Decided to take down the dental profit academy. And start a new. Hub of information resource of information whenever you want to call it. Okay. And the people who had already paid lifetime access were not given access to that they were marketed to, to buy once again, by lifetime access, and then they were told hey you've got one day. That we are. We've got a day or two day whenever it was, you have a drop dead date at which point dental profit academy will no longer be reachable. So going get all your stuff now and some people were upset because they paid for lifetime access, and they were not going to get that, and some people took to the groups in posted their grievances. And there was some traction on those posts. Yeah. Upwards of at least the post that I'm currently have in front of my eyes. Three hundred ninety eight comments some four hundred comments on this. Over time. I guess, over the span of a day, or two or three I don't know the exact time, I'm a niece decided, he this was not a good idea. We kind of screwed some people. What can we do to fix it? And I think eventually at the end the resolution was, hey, those people who are dental profit academy paying members, the lifetime will be grandfathered into the new service, cool. That was the right decision. Yeah, absolutely made the right decision, and I applaud her, and her tribe for recognizing the fact that people are frustrated responding to that fact enough somewhat timely manner, and being fluid, and deciding. Hey, this system that we have set up his bat. Right. And we should fix it now. Whether you want to get into on, I'm not gonna get into motives, or any of that stuff, like, you know, whatever now. There was a problem and she fix it. Uh-huh. The part of the reason that the optics on this problem were so bad was because she had gone on some podcast, excuse me. I don't know what it is. I could dig around and find it should gone on some podcast and made the comment that she made a hundred and seventy five thousand dollars in three days on this dental profit academy. Well, let's. And. That. That's a tough look when you've been at the podcast with season two episode seven of behind the membership row with your host the membership guys is, is the name of, of the podcasts. So there's kind of record of how well she did on this and now she wanted more money and, and, and fixed it. And how long had this existed was you said, three years, a couple of years, you know, I, I don't I wasn't a member, so I don't have the exact exact timing on this, but she fixed and cool. And I think at at least at first on the threat, she was very I'm sorry, you know, I see this is what we're doing. Okay. It's not enough. Y'all. Let's do this very quickly became. It very quickly became a plea of. Being that an ISA was a victim of polling. Of people saying, you know, mean things about her at cetera et cetera. A very quickly turned from. I made this bad decision and fix it and took care of my customers to. Whoa. Is me? I have a child with some developmental anomaly. Or so I, I don't remember what the exact wording was. But this has been so hard on me and you guys were so mean to be in my life is so hard because I have this these issues at home, and it very much became a plea for victim status. Yeah. That's, that's, that's where I that's where I draw the line. That's where I have a problem. That's that's to me the line that got crossed to win. I was like, hey, you know everyone. Let's just get this thing fixed and you know, life life will be good. And then it became to me, this other narrative that just was I feel. Tone deaf. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I. I've never walked in those shoes. So I'm apt. It's hard for me to say what I would have said, how he would have handled it, but I tend not to bring in irrelevant backs to contribute to backstory that, that doesn't make. It's not like that, sort of, oh, woe is me on the victim. Is that, that to me a such a foreign? That's such a foreign thought process to me. That I don't. I my brain would never even go there. Yeah. My brain would would never talk about. What rare gastrointestinal issues? I have what personality or whatever developmental disorders that my children, have whatever personal dynamics are going on between me and my significant other. Right. That stuff is irrelevant here. That plea for victimhood I think is, is such it's just it's, it's such, it's not the right way to it's not the right way to do any, it's not the right way to do life. Right. And it's hard to, to garner sympathy in act as a victim, if you make a hundred seventy five thousand dollars in three days. Yeah. Yeah. You, you, you, you done well, and not that money is, is everything and get like an ISA, if you're listening to this, which you're not promised. I told her the respect everything she's done. She's, obviously built this dog right, like right. I wish I was smart enough to come up with that, right? But obviously I'm not. And if I was I'd have fucked something up at some point to all right. Oh, yeah. So I get it man. We all make mistakes. I did we did some I figured out, like we had a stupid system in my office that we fixed today. Right. This stuff happens. But if Ventoux just hit it right into that, like, I think. We especially, and I say in this country and the funny thing is she doesn't live in this country. So it was in Jamaica, but even still like. None of us are freaking victims, man. We we're in such like we are in the cream of, of life like you know, I I don't know her financial, but she's in the top five percent of wealth in the world, right? Yeah. Easily super successful. Is this massing multiple businesses that are all doing well? And somebody said something mean about her on the internet. Does the victim gonna happen? There's tons there are there only real life victims. None of us are there's people that don't have a place to sleep. There's people that don't know where their next meal is coming from. There are people who are bought in traded in the sex trafficking business. Right. Yeah. Those times so what he said something mean about you on the internet. In the grand scheme of life. I think her exact quote is this has been the worst week of my life. Yeah. Yeah. Lisa, you've lived a really damn good life. Yeah. Yeah. This is the worst part of your life. Because that tells me either number one, you've never had a family member pass away. Or number two, your priorities are royally screwed. If this was the worst week of your life. Yeah. I mean, there's something to be said, if you're gonna put yourself out there and you're gonna prop yourself up in into us a status that yet, you're going someone's going to say something mean. Yes, who happens. You're who cares? Yeah. Who cares? Yeah. Yeah. There's always going to be a hater you're, you're, you know, I'm sure she thinks I'm a hater because I like to make jokes about things. And sometimes I make jokes about. Yeah. Her her tribe. So to speak in some of the folks, that are in that tribe, and the passionate which her try follows her. Those are all things they've joked about in the past, I don't respect her. What I don't respect is this immediate plea for whoa. Is me deserve your sympathy. I was bullied. And so what should have been a one day thing. Hey, we changed this, it's fixed because of this sort of victim playing that's happening on all of these groups now by her, and her trimbe. This is now we're going on week two of this, right? Like we've been through one this, this happened over a week ago. Was it in there still stuff going on today about about how there's this fake Facebook page, about dental hub three sixty and then that's that that's cyber bullying and cyberbullying caused people to commit suicide? And so we can't. We can't stand for this anymore and it's like you know. Yeah. Yeah. That. Escalated pretty silly silly response. I. I don't know. Thank God, I, I spent a, a little while about six months ago or so. Quitting all these dental groups. So i'm. I'm in some but, but not nearly what I had been. Magin. I got to tell you, it's a glorious moment when you really don't have that much dental going through your newsfeed kill for that. Like. Yup. Homo or something, you just can't cook with groups proud of his land says that we used his these contents. That's true and my role in this show. I'm not the best editor I will edit probably what would you say fifteen percent of the shows that we do out of the seventy something shows we do? I think I've edited maybe ten less than that six eight somewhere in there, so editing, not my forte. Sound engineer is not my forte. I find the questions. So I gotta have questions some of these groups. If it wasn't for that, I would go Adly leave them all. I do there's, there's two names that I want to put out there real quick. And this is just sort of standing up for my boys. Okay. I feel like. Jason Lipscomb, who's who Chris off our called Jason lips. Come. You laugh. The hardest last week. I love you Jason. But she didn't. That was funny anyway. And Alan Meade are getting really like torn asunder and being called all sorts of crazy aims being bullied, by the people who are accusing them of bullying them, 'cause weird sort of, of self defense mechanism that doesn't count because they feel like they were already believed. I don't get it. But Jason and Alan are getting dragged through the mud because they quote unquote just let this happen. Well. Dental hacks nation, which is where a lot of this transpired is Jason Allen's group and they are very open about their libertarians. Yeah. They just like they just let stuff like they don't even look at the post before they get approved they'd just approve everything. Yeah. And they let the market. Decide out, they don't curate what happens in their group. Yeah. Adam Smith and economics. It's their group. They could with it, it, how are they are they supposed to certify the dumpster fire without letting it become without it becoming? All right. So if you want to curate, if you have a group, and you want to curate it, cool. It's your group, give it right to do that. Which you don't have the right to do is to come in and put Jason Allen on blast for running their group the way they want to run it. And at some point, there was a comment of well, I gave Alan the idea to start the group. Okay. So that, that means that he has to do it. Exactly your way, is that it I, I don't understand that defense I Joe I don't from my personal experiences, though. Jason Allen is I don't think either one of them have a mean bone in their body. I haven't seen it. I really don't. I just like I, I think that the tribe, quote unquote thinks that people think way more about them than they actually do. Uh-huh. And this is a conversation. I've. Have with a couple of those people. Like you really think I think a lot more about you than actually do the amount of brainpower us on. You guys is virtually zero percent. I don't think about you and tells stuff like this happens, and then it's like, all right. Well, this is what number of minute are we on? This is twenty minutes a show so great. But other than that, I was I'm always looking at I never liked to be the first person in a market. Okay. I like seeing someone go in first and then seeing how I can adapt the idea. You make it better. So I have I'm launching a new a new new mastermind group. Oh. So it's called the talk all the shit you want about Josh mastermind. And so I need one thousand people to sign up entry fees, one hundred seventy five dollars. Now that's a lifetime. Membership guaranteed and is part of your membership. You get to say whatever the hell, you want about me online in person, whatever, and I don't care because why all the hundred seventy five grand cash to go to the banquet. That's why won't care about what he says about me online. You're a I don't know how old how old and he is. This is a bad idea. It's always a bad idea lands. But guessing a woman's age. Yes, not. I'm just guessing. You're a forty five year old woman. This, this stupid like this needs to not be the worst thing that's ever happened to you. Yeah. It's just gonna get worse. You need a strict. You need a grounding indeed. If this is the worst week of if that was the worst week of your life, you got some live into do girl. You got some they've into do because you're just living behind your computer and that ain't good for anybody know, can I count on you to join my mastermind group plants probably not? I need a thousand people. So for this to go down any two thousand people show, outlaying counter seventy five bucks. Vin MOS, great to maJ. Austin DDS on Ben mo- pay pal geology, DDS dot com. Any of those just submit your one hundred seventy five bucks in his soon as I get the mastermind group is live. I'll even give you a list of curse words in names. Just you don't have to think about, you know, anything like you could just pull you like sort of, like one of those critics, like what's your Harry Potter, name, the month, you were born in your favorite color of the shirt? You're wearing your whatever like that's coupled with your Harry Potter name, like it'll be like that. It'll just be a super easy way to find it name to call me. You know, like a chopstick goblin pizza faced. A goon potato like okay it's just a random name. Generator came up with. Yeah. Perfect. What do you think Lance lifetime membership? You look with that put it on wax, Lance, as I heard some young people say, putting it on wax on wax. I have not heard that one. It up. Eric, I'm old. Putting it on wax is a reference to the beastie boys. And Herber dictionary says spoken word so profound moving or inspiring that they should be recorded on vinyl. Put it on wax. Lance already putting it on wax. Good question, too. Do you have anything to add to that one, I have none listener Jeanette asks? And now I can finally say that I've seen everything it's been a long time since someone asked me for dental advice at a party used to happen. Frequently, but it hasn't come up lately, maybe it's because I didn't offer could advice. That one harnessing crime, or perhaps because typically respond with reciting my office hours and encouraging the acquiring party to call my office during set hours but today was different. I was at a party, I was at an effing funeral. I just threw three spadefuls of dirt on the coffin. I feel like it's a Jewish thing. The rabbi was still halfway into the prayer in I always visibly. Distraught. The distaste was my friend's father known for many years, Israeli quit, and intelligent in a man who left too soon. This family friend, Andy longtime patient at some dental issue. She had already had an appointment scheduled at my office tomorrow with my associate. But since I don't work on Friday. She felt this is the perfect opportunity to bring her dental issues up at a funeral. She's a great patient. Neither her nor any of her family members ever miss an appointment. She pays in full never negotiates or questions anything. She needs a lot of work. She didn't spend as much on her dental implants in my practice is the crowd action clients, spent on all their other implants. But I'm pretty sure she came close and they want to be rid or I suppose, the big rollers have more flexibility. Well, big rollers? Hot. What's on high roller? Is that what is that is that where I'm getting stuck on that, like that seems weird? It's weird. I think it's high roller right? Tyrod. We'll go big roller some more flexibility. Just makes a big floppies. But still at a funeral. I usually a pretty good with a witty comeback. But this time I just stood there, blinking until my husband will me away. This is either rhetorical or possibly suitable for working interferences. What the app is wrong with people, which is a question that we've been asking. But if yet to find. A suitable answer. Have you ever been approached for dental advice? At a funeral. I have not I have not that doesn't mean I won't. It's just hasn't happened yet has not happened to me yet, either even at parties and stuff like that doesn't happen to me often. It has actually been a little while since I've been getting the proper. Yeah, it seemed to happen a lot. When I was a new grad, I don't know why they seem to be more often than than now. But. Maybe I just got that resting bitch. Face thing go and people know better. We'll be athletes got RBM strong. So this, gene happens to be cheated Dorfman hosted behind the smiles who, who I me, personally, I adore. Awesome. Great one of the highlights of my days. When I see Gina posted on something. Can you mitt something? It's be judged. No. But go ahead. Remember you have to pay one hundred seventy five dollars my group to judge me Jesse until you pay that one. All right. All right. I enjoy the show. Downton abbey. Same. Great show. Love the show and it's a soap opera. Oh, yeah. I get it. I mean it's not like the movie you can wait days of our lives. Is that the pool I was looking for sure? Soap opera still on. No. I think the final one just got pulled. So there's okay, so they're kind of done this to me like this is it's a soap, I it's on BBC or whatever PBS, whatever it is. It's a so far. So, so I, I admit it with some trepidation about judgment, but I like the shit out of that show soak show. So good, especially like seasons one two three amazing. Yeah, I remember lots of people started tying me. Uh-huh. It seemed like it became like I the writer's room. Here's a bunch of British guy sitting around is like okay today, can you can off, somebody like that was just their play this kill somebody just they couldn't figure out what to do? Somebody died a lot of people died. And I think main characters that they probably like, wish they didn't have killed off, like one episode after they killed them all. So there were a lot of funeral scenes. And what, you know, the, the costumes were such a huge part of downton abbey very much very much in black is very slimming. So as a very good. Yes. I mean it was. And so, the, the sort of I don't remember which particular main character this was referring to. But I specifically remember, like they're being discussion on down Abby about, like wearing black and certain sort of like morning, clothing for, like months after the funeral like a certain number of months or whatever number of days. It was it was a long time, and they would have to wear, you know, these sort of morning tire clothing morning with the you not the time. Hey, and there was a lot of the only thing I could relate it to sort of like a tortilla holder that would go on the back of your head, and then had a veil that would come over, you know, the women's heads the women's Faso, black. Yep. You know, I guess, signified that they were in morning. I don't think anybody would ask advice if you had she been wearing some sort of traditional black veil, do you. Yeah. I think that would that would help. What do they call that thing? I just searched for a black funeral veil and kind of the exact same exact stuff that I was asking him up so morning veil or funeral veil. That seems to be to me, you know, just an instant sign of. Hey, maybe don't engage. Yeah. That, that seems to be a universal truth. So I think we need to come back out with the sort of tortilla holder. It's a black fail attached to it for funerals. Can you make for everyday attire? Just people noted not doctor you wanna talk to you. Yeah. Yeah. I might not be a bad idea. Actually, we can maybe come out with some sort of working interferences, branded funeral veil that can be worn that really gives the signal of. Hey. Don't talk. I'm not interested in any type of communication small talk. Whatever. Funerals are always uncomfortable for me. They're never a good time. Anybody who's super comes funeral? I guess I should say I mean they have wedding crashers, but there's not really many brokers. Yeah. Yeah. Although AMC curious about the spread, you know, the food spread after a Jewish funeral. You know, do we have to lock goes, right? Got the. Another Jewish food. Yeah. That, that stuff. Do we have that yet? Do we have the brisket like what which one, what is it is it good Jewish food? Or is it the sort of train wreck Jewish food? I. Right around that time, I think to the fortified wine is always good to get you to your funeral. The, the problem with the funeral to me lands is I don't really even want to, like, say anything to anyone, I don't want to have any thoughts because assuming it's not a relative of mine, I'm kind of like. When is it appropriate for me to make another joke? Right. I it's, it's inevitable. I'm going to say something wrong. Right. So how can I just not say anything 'til we leave I make a joke in the car? Can I make a sarcastic remark after week? It home. Like why do we have to change clothes from the funeral? Does my suit have to be off before I can say the sarcastic thing or, or, or, or not as the next day before I can't. So that's sort of part of the reason. Like I'm just not talking much at a funeral to anyone. Much less asking somebody for for advice. Yeah. That. Yeah, I use humor as a as a defense mechanism a coping mechanism in so. Hole in my in my psyche. And in my. And in my brain in general, like of what I fill that hole with. Yeah, my David, if you'd roles to not, not say anything, I think this is a super tough look for the patient. How would you handle this? Because I think genus husband was Johnny on the spot. I think sort of arm around. Yeah. And then one hand still on the shoulder. She got that kind of move going on and just sort of leading her away. I think that's the perfect move. So is husband. I don't know what his name is. I think he nailed it. Yeah. What if Holly's not there to do that for you? Lance in someone asks, you about whatever bogus crap like, what's, what's your move? I it's usually I'll say the wrong thing in fend, anybody within earshot. So she usually knows better than Li me unattended. Yeah. Otherwise, yeah, I'm I think you just have to go with. I'm so sorry. My mind is elsewhere. Yeah. I think what you have is a good one. Yeah. Just stare at them dumbfounded, open mouth, and eventually figure can't have that. Can't have that, like, oh, you're a stupid idiot look on your face, but potentially, maybe just more of a deer in the headlights. I say I know look, I think that would sort of buy you some. You know, 'cause all you really got to do is like, three beats of silence and having that during the headlights look and I think this patient gets the sort of drift of. Oh, I've done something terrible. You know, but I have found many people do not pick up on nonverbal cues, and continue digging a hole and saying Moore and terrible. People suck. That they do Lance that they do. So I think Gina next time you have a funeral. Where the sort of down Naby kind of funeral mourning veil say you don't have to have to deal with this. You're gonna then have to continue to do this sort of downton, abbey six weeks of mourning clothes, like only black for six weeks. No color and flowers and anything like that consult, the, the Dow Naby style guide right for their information, which is something I do regularly anyway, you know, because I always I always do wear the, the, the, the black tide had dinner, but the white tie, you know to, to after noon facilities. Uh-huh. You know. So you have to you just have to be up on that. So if you really need a valid is what you need you need your own Mr. Bates. There you go. You need your own Mr. Bates. So thankfully, Gina had her Mr. Bates with her. Well, they'll know you're in England. So that's masturbate s-. Thank you. So. Yeah. Where whereas funeral veal, and I think people leave you alone. I'm actually gonna try, but we're the veil tomorrow, we're go and just sort of see, you know how things go. Boy, they are Gina would say. Hey, lance. Yeah. We have a sponsor for today show. Yeah. How about that? I want to give a big shout out to our friends at dental economics and the principles of practice management conference. That's coming to Norfolk Virginia Norfolk Norfolk. I'm going to say Norfolk okay. Because I'm comfortable saying Norfolk okay. The Daytona that July eighteen nineteen twenty nineteen at the Norfolk waterside, Marriott. Wins. Jimmy frustrations is a business owner, what time of day, is it? I think the answer for most of us is yes, that would be a positive affirmative. Yes, we all have frustrations. And we often go to conferences, and leave with some raw leave with some fluff, but not leave with solutions. And that is not this conference right. So if you come July eighteenth and nineteenth in Norfolk Virginia to the dental economics principles of practice management conference. You're gonna hear from some of the industry, heavy hitters, like Roger, Lavigne. Have you ever heard of him I have Diane Waterson? There you go. Vinh cardio. Chris Salerno the dream boat himself. Greg, presi n Shuman Jerry McGoldrick, Patty dig Gandhi, Lucia Shuman, Allen, Schiff, ship thickener. I mean, these are like the financial names of names. Like these, these are the folks to talk to. And they are doing registration deals, baby deals. Registration, we love the deals early bird registration has been extended. So you can still get that discounted price actual full group or the full cost of this. So for eight hundred dollars but you can get that for much cheaper. Five ninety nine is the New York now. Argon meals. Networking crews on Thursday night. A little little fun. Cruise around the door folk harbor, I guess, inlets. Lord. So check out. Let me get you the right website here principles of practice MG. Mt dot com. So it's principles of practice MG. Mt dot com. Principals a practice management conference by dental economics, be there or be broke whence. They go. You ready for a doozy of Riddick question. I think so read it use her own snap. Says. My dentist might secretly be a gang member, not a dentist. But just last week, I saw signs that my dentist might belong to a gang. I was in his office and getting my annual cleaning. I couldn't help. But notice, what looks like a chain hanging out of his dubber. So he was walking back to review an x Ray. He took. I got up inspected. It is a really big goal chain with a golden tooth at the center. I have no idea. What kind of gang uses his teeth for symbolism? I put it back before he returned at didn't want him to think I was snooping. So I didn't ask him about it. But on my way out he stopped to talk to one of his employees pizza in his office and saw frame with the words, teeth gang and skeleton crew on the wall, which only reinforced by suspicions Zinni, one else think maybe my Dennis Hesam skeletons in the closet. I would have a bone to pick with him over it. But I think I'd better mind. My business. Do you think that he's in a game? Well, the first thing about skeleton, the teeth gang club is we don't talk about it. So own OEMs, snap, we're gonna find you and the luminaries your net. Yeah. You're now you're now, March, marked man. We're gonna find you. Here's the thing leads. If if they're Dennis was secretly game. I really hope that they would pick a better name than teak, gang or in crew. Or are you sure this about the lamest group if that's true? Would it surprise you? I went to Wikipedia to find a list of names of criminal enterprises gangs, and syndicates really crossed the world. And I scrolled through them. And I found some some cool ones. So I'm just gonna read kind of someone's that I'm just scrolling through, and I find cool. Okay. All right. Then this teeth related, or this, these are just these are just gangs in joke. All right. All right. Black eagles. Okay. Super cool, right? Okay. Low status. That sounds like. That's intimidating right? Very intimidating. Just put a Paul Pierce and cut my pants. Yeah. Abso hundred percent. This. There's, there's a couple from Canada, that one is that both make me laugh. The revived organization. It sounds like a hedge fund group. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. It's canadian. So it's a very polite. The other one I love is the bacon brothers from Canada. Only a wearing the bacon. Brothers a better, you better pay up a or I'm going to come back with this bottle, and they pull syrup and break it over your head, go raptors. Hey, go Lee is Kevin mascot is, is who Kevin bacon. Okay. That's a good idea though. I would like that. I missed that one. I was thinking of Kevin fryer, our friend. And like I maybe I mean does he does like an old mafia. Part of Cleveland. I love all the sort of crime families the resute. Oh, crime family, the Trone Lupino musette, Dan up Badia said, there are no gummy seal. Those are like the sort of family groups. All right. This was super cool, the Broadway mob sewer. That's great super cool. I like this the circus cafe gang. Okay. I'm not as intimidated. Let's Gary, but the level of this teeth gang scholar through the polish mob has a few entries. One of them is the kielbasa, posse. Here's the thing. If you're invading, the turf of a polish mob, you know, they're going to get pissed and they're going, maybe have some retribution. So the key is if you just walk in backwards, you can tell them that you're leaving. And they'll, they'll. So that's how that's how you deal with a polish mob joke for us, how you infiltrate the gang coalition joke for you. Lance got it. In in Hawaii. We have the company, which I feel you know, I'm not I'm not as, as, as that's not as intimidating the Gambino crime family has an offshoot called the ozone park boys, which I guess, are really into the green new deal. Probably, you know. Yeah. Let's see here. What else do we have? We have a lot of just like this, Kansas City crime family. The Los Angeles crime family. Cleveland crime family stuff on the nose Denver crime family little little on on the nose. Not very creative in the Jewish, mafia in New York City. We've got the bugs and Meyer mob. The Rosen's Feige gang the Rothstein organization, which, again, sounds like their day traders. Right. And they're just like their heads up and going. Folio. Yeah. Absolutely. They're totally give you some investing advice as well as the ship hero brothers. Oh, but this one is good. This is the best Jewish, mafia gang. Okay. The Yiddish black hand. Oh, that's a good one. That's gonna leave a Mark in Boston. We've got the sixty nine th street gang now. He's okay. Let's see the Cleveland syndicate, which I really think the Cleveland Browns should change their name to the Cleveland syndicate in Philadelphia. We have the black mafia and the junior. Black mafia, less imitating a little bit little bit Oakland. The sixty nine mob. Nice. Okay. Again in Baltimore, the Williams organization, which is an offshoot of the Crips old really the Williams organization. They sent a defense contractor fund, right? Like it's very straight. Very, very strange. The two we gang doesn't again, strike much fear in to me. They got a bunch of names. Like Danny Hogan's gang which I guess, all depends on whether or not Danny HOGAN is intimidating The Danny Walsh, gang that Tom Dennison empire. I like that one, the Tom Dennison empire. This is this might be my favorite one. The Belgian mill you. It's still European. It's not even funny. The balancing man. You I don't know if it's intimidating but it's great. That is great gang name the Belgian you. I want to join I think you could because you do have your Belgian dental license. Right. That's right. Yeah. I should contact them. Is there as a contact information there? They do have a, a do have their own Facebook pages organised crime at started in France. It was based in urban major cities, such as Marseille Grenoble Paris in the own. Okay organized crimes. We're gonna criminals are collectively known as the French mob, and singularly known as the bull voyage, aka, the goodfellas operating thin limit. You we've stands for the or translates to the underworld, but I don't know if that's a direct translation because. Bill us more like in the middle in. I've used that term before, but never talking about the underworld. Yeah, you're y'all Ron. The black hand. You know that like the Chicago black hand that's the black hand is great. That aims or innovation again like county firm it just don't put organization organization just doesn't make it scary. A lot of a lot of wants a numbers like thirteen thirteen seems to be a number because I think there's. MS thirteen you know that you would have like in California. But there's so there's a lot of thirteen so at dental, gang morality yen, I don't know. I don't I don't know enough about numerology to know like, what thirteen means other than I know it's considered unlucky. But you could totally have like a something thirty two gang right flight thirty two teeth. The tenth avenue get, you know, so all that sort of, of these are geographic, which you can't really do everywhere. Right. So this kind of kind of be everywhere, I saw this, and I thought, maybe this is related, it says Dutch mob. But when I first read it, I thought I read Dutch, IMO be and I was saying, like, you know, media Kusel buckle. What about like what about the IMO d boys or something like that? With, like a z boys Z. Yeah. Well, you gotta have it see that legitimizes you right away. Always throw the Z. Yeah. Also in, in Europe, the Gooch gang which I love okay, the burger bar Bohai switch again I'm not really intimidated by because I've never been impressed by burger. I've had in Europe before. Think of any. No, I love this. This is a big gang in South Africa. The area boys. Very generic. Oh, them area, boys. Not Aaron area area. Okay. We got the sixty nine years, the motorcycle motorcycle club. Of course, the Hells Angels super pagans motorcycle cub the sons of silence. The black pistons, the highwayman, the motorcycle clubs all have cool names. They, they tend to. Yeah. All have cool, cool name. So I, I really feel there's a burglary ring known as the sugarman gang. So maybe we'd be like anti sugarman gang. Right. Right. I'm really thinking like, like, like IMO d thirty two boys or something like that. Right. That's kinda there's not really a cool gang name for teeth the thirds. Ooh. Yeah. A group oral surgeons. Yeah. I think the odds. I do like that one, the screwdrivers there you go screwdrivers. That's a good one. That's I think that's just a Moody's gang. We need to get necklaces. Big gold necklaces with golden plants on him. Yeah. I think that'd be great. I think that'd be great. So it's kind of a cool thing. I think we got is the screwdrivers I'm fairly certain. What was the guy's name own snap snap. Yeah, that your dentist is not any gay. That. Really? The odds of guess. How how many dentists are there in the United States? One hundred thousand something like that. Nice round number. Yeah. Someone out of the hundred thousand dentists the United States are any of them in a again. I really doubt it, I doubt it. I doubt it. I doubt I heard an ISA homes as in a game. I heard she's a she's trying to sit a low a cartel. She ready to go to runs it. You better.

The Economy Is Driving Women Out Of The Workforce And Some May Not Return
"Layoffs Food Stamps Hurricane. This is not what Jennifer Staley had planned for twenty twenty I'll be fine. It's fine everything's fine. It's It nothing's. Staley lives in southern. Alabama. She works as a waiter at a restaurant in Gulf shores right on the beach. While she used to work there. Anyway, I usually would make between. Five and eight or nine, hundred dollars a week. It was enough to cover her expenses rent food not just for her but also for her two kids a fifteen year old and her two year old son, it was tight but it worked. Then came covert. Staley became one of the more than eleven million American women who lost their jobs in the start of this pandemic. Restaurant reopened for a bit. Then Hurricane Sally shut it down in September now she's back to looking for work work in a service industry that is still devastated. Affordable childcare is hard to come by and the stalemate in Washington means there is guarantee of any extra stimulus coming her way. Jennifer Staley is stuck. I really hate asking for help. But I don't have any food and I don't have any. pull ups for him and I don't I just don't have anything and One of my managers work went piggly-wiggly and got me groceries. And I ran around after the hurricane came through and picked up emory's and I'm GonNa Ford them for the next time I might not have money. So I've gotten help. But I've had to really ahead to beg for help in it it sucks. Consider this. More women than men lost their jobs in this pandemic era economy millions more what if the recovery ends up unequal to? From NPR, I'm audie cornish it's Monday October nineteenth. Off. And I don't. Want to leave. White Male. This representative democracy a new series about voting in America from NPR's through line listen now. It's considered this from NPR. It's been six months now since the unemployment rate peaked back in, April people are starting to get back to work some jobs are coming back Valerie. Wilson is an economist at the Economic Policy Institute a nonpartisan think tank in Washington DC she's starting to see some trends as we have continued on. It has become clearer and clearer that the recovery from this recession will not be nearly as uniform in the federal jobs report for. September there was one stat that caught. Wilson's I the number of people who left the labor force. So the way that we measure on employment in this country, the unemployment rate only considers people who report they. They have actively search for a job in the last four weeks. That means if you're not actively searching for a job, you may still be unemployed, but you're not counted that way in government statistics and proportional number of those. People are women in September alone more than a million American stop looking for work eighty percent of them were women women especially, women of color are overrepresented in jobs that have been hit hardest by Calvin servers, housekeepers, retail workers, that kind of thing and Wilson says, childcare has gotten harder. A lot of schools and childcare centers are still closed. So many women are faced with a set of choices that are all bad do you go to work and exposure to the virus, but continue to bring an income. Do you not go to work you know have more protection from the virus but not have the income for women in particular who are single heads of households with minor children in school, they're having to make choices about childcare. At the same time they're having to make decisions concerning the economic security of their houses as well as the health of their households. It was another striking about that huge number of women who left the workforce last month. Of the eight hundred and sixty, five, thousand. More than three, hundred, thousand of them were Latina. So. Whereas white women may have been a more likely to retain employment because they had jobs that they could do from home. Latino women were employed in jobs that they were not able to do remotely. Valerie Wilson of the economic. Policy Institute. In Peers Briana, Scott spent the week speaking to Latinas around the country asking about how they're making it work. warned not. It definitely wasn't a choice for Celeste Selwyn to step away from work earlier this year. So when's fifty one she lives in Santa? Rosa. California she's worked at the social worker for eight years working with kids and young adults at the start of the pandemic selling tried to keep working fulltime was all eighty five of her usual clients. But some school closed it. She had to take over watching him and teaching him. She's a single mother. Her son is twelve years old he has autism. So He needs a lot of extra help. He was having severe behaviors like. Leaving the house was flooding in the bathroom broke the sink. It's not that he means to do it. Selwyn son needs constant supervision and help with things like going to the bathroom in. Normally he'd be in school all day getting help with speech therapy and reading and keep himself calm. But for Selwyn having to do all that alone was overwhelming. It was really hard and I was really a- my breaking point in March. Where I didn't think that I could continue. Continue going on. Trying to care for him. How being like all these emails and phone calls from work, I couldn't shower. So she tried working part time for a while, but without the medical benefits that come with working full-time hours, someone would have had to pay a couple hundred bucks for a son's medication every month. So she went back to working time in July. She packs it all into her mornings. Now when our son is at his comments instead of later in the day, long as my child doesn't go hungry. Am I bills are paid that we keep the lights on. I mean, it's a struggle. But you know women of color we make things work the primary factor in why so many Latinas have lost their jobs or dropped out of the labor force what's called occupational segregation in other words how Latinas are over presented an industry is like restaurant service hotels and housekeeping. By April seventy two percent of domestic workers report they were out of work according to a study done by the National Domestic Workers Alliance. Many of them are still without a steady job like Rosanna. Fifty years old and originally from oral why she came to the? US. About twenty years ago illegally in naturalism. Miami where she cleans houses and warehouses. Cuando comment soil up on the Mir and Gomez shot as at the beginning of the pandemic she lost most of her cleaning jobs. Now when she can find work, she says, she can bring it about fifteen hundred dollars a month but her rent is thousand dollars. So she slept with just a few hundred bucks most months for everything else when she's not able to find work, she's had to get help from her nineteen year old son or from a charity fund. And those Tacoma Mass. But baynes among we need aaliyah contrary infamy Akita. She says, she's worried about catching Kobe because she's hanging on your before in the cleaning products she uses sometimes make it harder for her to breathe. It's a bind her job might get her sick, but she doesn't have healthcare. So she'd need that income from to pay for any medical bills. She scared, but she says you just have to keep going. Catastrophe Komo beneath memento. Says that when immigrants face a pandemic, those without documents suffered the most especially the domestic workers. While other women could be helped by tracks Idaho isn't eligible to receive one. For now she says. She's trying to work as much as she can save money and prepare like she will, for hurricane. NPR's Briana Scott. Victoria Day Frencesco Soto hear stories like all of these and she worries big time. She's a public policy expert at the University of Texas and she tells me that without any help change the hardships facing women like the three we've heard about may not stop with having to go part time. We're probably also going to see a lot of women. Spiraling down and it pains me to say this, you know having to move in with relatives. Probably, this is going to be a cause of potential. Homelessness among women. So I think that if we don't see something happened in terms of real solution, we're going to see real pain and suffering in your view what's needed to right this ship I mean is it about another stimulus package? A stimulus package is important, but we're talking about structural change here. The United States comparatively speaking it's really embarrassing what our childcare system looks like. We have this patchwork system where you know you have had start, which is amazing. But head start only service about seven to thirteen percent of those families who need it we have the the tax credits that help higher income families but that only covers about a quarter of the childcare costs. So we need to reimagined what a childcare's them in an industrialized nation like the United States looks like most other of our countries have universal pre K for universal pre-k through a lot more supports in terms of childcare, we need to step it up. What might the lasting impact be especially on those communities that were hit? The hardest right had the largest numbers of job loss. Right. So if we don't see structural change, not just sending out a check, check his good to to to tied won over but more meaningful structural change. We're going to see the inequalities that we are pressing right now only widen and at the same time set women further back we have seen women slowly, but surely make gains in terms of closing the pay gap it's still. A yawning divide but we are closing it as we're increasing our education as we're getting more into the stem fields but without the structural supports of childcare and also targeted female workforce training because the other piece of this is that we know that women are represented in the jobs that are low wage low skill that are the most easily automated. So if we're not retooling women and getting our young girls in school ready to engage in the fourth industrial revolution. Women are at danger of falling behind. On Victoria Day Francesco Soto of the University of Texas. It's consider this from NPR. I'm Audie Cornish and I'm Jonathan Wilson from W. A. M. U. and I'm Rachel craziest. From DC Est. it's considered this from NPR and W Amu. It's eleven o'clock at night on October ninth and DC, at large councilmember Anita bonds gets a knock on the door demanding that she come out and talked to a dozen or so protesters about their housing demands she declines, and then here's them start to protest outside her house. So bonds as the chair of the Housing Committee in the group says that she broke her promise that a bill reflecting their demands we get a hearing in early November. They saw the upcoming calendar earlier that. Day In that promise hearing wasn't there? Sunrise Movement DC is an environmental activist group in the area with the group wants is comprehensive rent control legislation. So that would mean increasing how many tenants benefit from rent control in limiting how much landlords can increase rent every year. Now, Anita bonds is a black woman. She told W USA nine in an interview that the group used kkk tactics that night but the group denies the accusation it didn't end. They're this whole situation became an issue in. A very crowded race for citywide council member at large candidate Marcus Goodwin who is also black defended bonds after the protest saying the group harassed her, he accused his competitor Ed Lazier of Encouraging Sunrise Movement DC to protest outside her house Lizard denied that he had anything to do with the bonds protest. He said, instead, he was advocating for protests at any public officials home including his if he is elected all of the energy that we have this past summer around police brutality in the face of policymakers at their homes, thousands of people testifying that's the kind of thing that puts pressure. As someone who supports the go? It doesn't it doesn't put pressure, but it shows the community back. Sunrise. Denied Liz ears involvement in anything happening at Bond House. It's important to note here that sunrise DC has endorsed. Liz. Zere who represents among the more lefty candidates running he's a top tier candidate along with Goodwin who's more moderate and business friendly and after Goodwin said that there is a connection between. Calling for protests and the protests in October at bonds as house, we saw another demonstration, a group of people under the banner protect Black Women showed up at Xeres House the same night. As Goodwin Statement I spoke with Jim Jones. He was one of those protesters and he says, he brought some friends along. Here's why everyone for him was in policy. Civic Eight I. Don't condone that right because when when it when it happened, we're going to go to steven like, Hey, what is it? What is the candidate that they endorsing their leave? What did he say right is going? To denounce his because he wanted to stand behind there. He said nothing right. Then you know how it goes these days your silence your salad is taking your head that you're you're you're integrates when you're right the wages went two thousand simply getting apology. Did. Have some skepticism about the protect black women folks he called it a campaign stunt. Now Rachel it's not unusual or new to hear or see people protesting. The homes elected officials and private citizens in the district has been going on for a while. Right. That's right and just as long as it's been going on, there's also a lot of controversy around that tactic. During the trump years, we've seen renewed attention to home protests who can forget the dance parties outside of a bunket trump or mike pence's house or more. Recently this summer we saw a Gogo Dance Party the Postmaster General's House, and the idea basically is that a politician or business person shouldn't be able to escape the consequences of their actions just because the workday is over and there's another element that rings true particularly during cove it, which is that. Other places where activists might target for protests like political offices or hearings, those offices are closed in the hearings are virtual in twenty ten. The DC council actually passed legislation to limit protests in residential areas. I am curious Rachel. Getting back to the initial controversy here anyone pressed Anita bonds about why the measure that the Sun Rise Movement wanted on the agenda hasn't been. There yet. So Anita bonds did make this promise that November fifth. We would see this hearing and as recently as last Friday, it still wasn't on the agenda she says, she wants to pair it with some other legislation having to do with rent control and housing but activists are saying this specific legislation is something that folks are clamoring for and it deserves its own hearing. Thanks for joining US consider this from. NPR listening next time we'll make sense of the major stories happening in the Washington region and elsewhere in your world I'm Jonathan Wilson and I'm Rachel courteous. Um.

My Dad noticed when they were cleaning behind the stove that there was mould on the wall and went to find out where the mold was coming from long story short, he has to take out half the kitchen and the entire bathroom. Their homeowners insurance that they would not pay for Becau- for it to be fixed because the leak was old, but the league was behind the wall.
