"By the way. If you've seen a picture of him, it's just he's got he's the whole character, the bow tie, the whole thing. It's out of control. RFK Junior goes on Rogan, who I really like, Rogan. And then he comments on Twitter. But let's actually go through this, James. OK. In a broader, more macro sense. The fact that you can have a podcast discussion between two dudes, not on CBS, ABC or NBC, and then have a reaction on it on Twitter, significantly move the zeitgeist and the national conversation. That's not. That's not what happened a couple of years ago, we have a whole new way of challenging preexisting orthodoxies now. Well, that's I think that that's because for the last two, three years, people like us, if I might give us a little credit, have gone around, dedicated a lot of time and energy to trying to wake people up and the trust level that our society has for these experts. Yes, is sort of abysmal, sort of bad. Now, it wasn't people just like us, though. I mean, the covid thing was a catastrophe from the get go. People were starting to see through it quickly, pretty quick, pretty quick. And it's just kind of it's been this shambling, you know, I picture like a bus going down the street, pieces falling off the wheels. This thing skidded to a halt a long time ago. And people's trust in things like the CDC, FDA, public health and general. It's all gone and it should be gone. It should be gone. We had a high trust society where we were so comfortable that we trusted things that took advantage of us. And the trust was not was not earned. Right. That's right. So one of my rules of thumb is the more power something has over me, the less I trust it. They have to keep earning my trust. Yes. Continually earned. They don't get it by you have to continually renew the trust. That's right. And when you make not just one misstep, but if they're missteps or not, is a deeper question. But 500 errors from masks to lockdowns, kids in schools, so many errors that it's not possible that it was statistically random that they got the wrong answer to every single thing. I, I believe one of the main. So I think the middle ground explanation, because most of our audience is, OK, they're evil and they want to abolish all of humanity. All right. Could be people try to do it before. Some people say, oh, no, they just didn't mean well. I think that is actually there's a third explanation, James. OK, when you are not studied in wisdom or in the ideas of right or wrong. You do not know how to answer the big questions. So, for example, CDC was posed with moral questions, for example, should you lock down your young? That's not a question for a scientist, because they're scientists like, well, we must their questions. We must stop the virus at all costs. Right. But then the question is the moral question, which is, well, childhood development actually matters a lot more than almost anything else. Yeah, the weighing, the weighing of two different. Yes, but but this is what the Roman emperors and the classics teach you. Yes. Which is to be studied in the question of temperance and prudence and how do you balance one thing against the other? Sure. The the the different levels of ethics, as Aristotle would say, and our leaders would say, but I'm just commanded to get rid of the virus and. Who's just at all costs? That's why we know about ordinary men just doing my job. We've got to get rid of this thing at all costs. We've got to do this. This is what the scientists said. Of course, they unleashed a model and the model doesn't make any sense. Instead, everybody in the universe is going to die and they use this as justification. Now, I think there are more cynical and of course, there were that found themselves in it, but the vast majority of people peddling it. Sure. Yeah. But they're also following some of these people. For example, Randy Weingarten was using closed schools as a bargaining chip to get a trillion dollars. It was a hostage situation. That's right. And to get Joe Biden elected. And she said so. So this is this isn't like I'm concerned. And blue states did this as a way to get bailouts. J .B. Pritzker and Gavin Newsom did it as a way to get a federal government bail out of huge amounts of money and all this printed money. Now they get inflation, inflation. So they have a new crisis. They get to milk. Yes. And why do they always need a crisis? Well, when you have a crisis, you can justify taking extraordinary steps, emergency powers or whatever it happens to be. So a crisis freaks people out. And you say, well, normally I wouldn't consent to this, but we're in a crisis. Normally, I wouldn't run fleeing from my house and leave it unguarded, the door open. But it's on fire. You know, when there's a crisis, people people allow for different behaviors. The about 30 seconds, what is one practical step we could take to weaken these people? You already said it. It's mockery. Anything that lowers you want to think generally anything that lowers the public trust level in these people. So mockery, exposing when they lie, exposing when they say they want to control us, exposing when they say that they want to force behaviors like Larry Fink did get a lot of mileage out of playing that one little clip of Larry Fink over and over and well, people have to have their behaviors forced. They won't put women on their boards if we don't force them to. So we're going to force them to any of this. Anything that lowers that trust level, that raises the suspicion level and takes away the power of their fake credentials, I think is the key. I feel as if we have a little bit of momentum right now, don't you? We are gaining momentum. We have to keep the pressure on everybody. We are living, I think truly in the next 18 months, we could deliver a death blow of the woke. We're not there yet. Things have to fall in line, but we are at a place right now where these people are finally running for the hills. James, we're out of time. Thanks so much. Thanks so much for listening, everybody. Email us your thoughts as always..

"Dr. James Lindsay continues with us. So so James, you and I were talking in the break. How do we win? How do we beat these people? The Marxists, one of the ways is mockery. Yeah. Why? Well, they don't like to be made fun of, Charlie. It actually they put themselves on a pedestal that they're better than. So you and I have talked in the past and I want to get too heady that they're kind of elite, elect, gnostic geniuses. They know you don't know. That's the basic principle. They know the secrets of the universe, so they get to be in charge. They're the stakeholders. Believe the experts, blah, blah, blah. So if you make fun of them, this pomp that they've given themselves, this pedestal they place themselves on, they fall off of it. That's one huge reason why mockery is so powerful. Yes. They have to look important. They have to look serious. They have to look like they have the grandest, smartest ideas. And if you just kind of point at that and you make one of those memes with like, you know, the bell curve with their stupid argument at the top and the smart guy, the Jedi and the moron agreeing, no, they're just grooming kids, you know, it cuts right through all of their their pomposity. Secondly, though, when you can teach people to laugh, if you want to get people over, you something like this, it's, you know, generally shameful. They're not going to come out and just like admit that they were wrong. But if you can get them to laugh at themselves and laugh about it and laugh with other people about it, when comedy is the vehicle for this, they'll overcome those prejudices and biases. They can let their mistakes go. It's a kind of a non -religious pathway and a very light pathway to looking for kind of self -forgiveness. And I think it's extremely valuable because imagine being caught up and it's really going to be hard to admit, wow, I got sucked into thinking that cutting the genitals off of kids was a good idea. That's going to be hard to just confess, but you start making fun of it and you can kind of let it slide into your past, reckon with it on your own. And if we can learn to laugh and joke about these things as a population, I mean, they have nothing to stand on because people forgive themselves for the guilt and shame cycles that they keep themselves. They thrive on moral superiority when it's really moral depravity and they take themselves so unbelievably serious. I'm talking about the woke intelligentsia. That's right. And humor, mockery is incredibly effective to build consensus to delegitimize their institutional power. I mean, I go around and I talk about all of the crazy, scary words Klaus Schwab has said. I'm, you know, he points out we're going to move from an economy of production and consumption to an economy of caring and sharing. And you're like, oh, my God, that's communism. Right. And people are kind of like, what? But then you say he wears a spacesuit and people just lose it. And all of a sudden he's not a serious character anymore. And it's really funny. You just we make the meme of him wearing the spacesuit saying crazy things that goes viral and all of a sudden his his authority is cut out from under him. It pierces the zeitgeist far more effectively. And there's a reason why Stalin and totalitarians lock up comedians. Yeah, because they could build consensus and weaken your regime. I mean, they can tell truth while getting you to laugh. So you'll accept the truth and you don't get caught again in that shame. You don't get caught. You don't it looks like you're not calling somebody out as the phrase goes in Wolkland. And it's this kind of soft way to deliver truth. But that gets it in. This is going to be the pride flag in 2030. James, did you see this? What do we got here? You see, put it up. Oh, yeah, they need created by Microsoft every single that that's not enough identities, though, James. No, it's not. So there's something to that. Let's dive into the philosophy of it. Why is it that the pride flag constantly has to be changing? Well, first of all, that is the progress flag. So the name the name tells you why they've moved from pride to progress. Is that correct? Yeah, that is technical. When did that change? I don't know. A year or two ago is when I stumbled on it. Who knows? So when they started to do you know, so it's like a colonizers flag as it is. And now the colonizers flag is being colonized by this angry triangle moving in from the side. But it represents in their own words progress. Well, progress doesn't end or more technically, the dialectic doesn't end. So that's how the dialectic progresses is, well, we've got to look at this next more granular issue. We've got to look at this next more granular. How does it mix when you're demiromantic but you're asexual? What does that mean? And so this becomes its own secret identity. And so what we need three more colors for that. And there's no bottom to this because, first of all, it's all made up. Second of all, it's it's narcissistic self exploration. And so as widely variable as personalities can be, there's going to have to be colors for everything. So I wrote this when I was studying Leviticus the other day, which it came to me about kind of democratized scripture for all of humanity, that the left thrives on secret society language written in a way only their people can understand. Yeah, that's right. Why is that significant? What I just said? Well, there's a lot of things that are valuable to that, but it allows you to signal to other people that you're you're talking the lingo. It allows you to say things out loud, kind of like H .G. Wells had the open conspiracy was the title of his book. Well, you can do an open conspiracy. We can sit here and talk. And if I'm talking and what the left always says is dog whistles. If I'm talking in code, then I can say things to you that you and I know what they mean. But everybody else doesn't know. So it's it looks innocuous but actually contains an agenda. And that can be easily weaponized in policy. I can say, hey, I just wanted to say we should acknowledge diversity in this policy document. And I think we just acknowledge it. But I mean something really specific, which means you have to have, you know, training and critical race theory. The gnosis. Yeah, well, the gnosis of the secret mind. That's right. Be able to understand. Otherwise, I'm not going to take you seriously. Right. Well, I mean, that's what gnosis is about, is that, you know, the secret meaning beyond the regular meaning. I just came across the thing the other day and it's talking about, you know, this it's talking about bringing the sustainable development goals into people at the next level. And it's talking about this eight stage process. It's called the Human Dignity Score or the Dignity Index. That's called the Dignity Index from Unite Ed, which is united, which is spelled. But it's Tim Shriver's project to push into education, to bring spirituality. He was on MSNBC this morning. Education. And so they have this dignity score. And you look down and it's like score of one is like this really horrible stuff. Everybody's prejudice. Score of five is all men are created equal and so on. And then there's three more levels where it's you never disagree with anybody or whatever, you know, honor everybody's personality and whatever they say at level seven or eight. And so what you see, though, is that the true theme of truth and equality and, you know, a fair and equal society is level five. But they've got three more levels. They know the secret sauce to get past, say, the American experiment and take it into some some brave new world. So that is exactly why they use coded language, is because they secretly know the secret meaning that the Constitution contained. They know the secret meaning of the Bible contained. They know the secret meaning. And you don't. And it keeps them more powerful. Yeah. So what they'll do is they'll point to people and say, look, level five, this is what you think is being a really good person. This is human dignity. But there's three more levels past that, as you know. Come join our cult. We'll teach you level six. This is how cults operate. This is how cults operate. And this is how all of their stuff works. We know, you know, the Bible, you know, the Bible really well, but did you know that in such and such there's this meaning, there's this other meaning to the Jonah story? Come here, I'll tell you, we know your thing a little better than you do. And the reason, but you don't know, you have to pay a tithe or give us your time. Yes. In order to get to that secret. And you can't trust your priest or your pastor or your religiously or yourself because they don't want you to know it because they are keeping you down. The American system, so keeping you down, just talking practically. The of proliferation the widespread reading of the scriptures was a challenge to secret gnosis. Yeah, of course. Of course it is. If you can read the scripture for yourself, if you will. Yeah. If everybody can read the scriptures in their own vernacular languages, by the way, speaking of something that was a capital crime, they killed people for printing Bibles in languages people could read. They killed Tyndale for translating the Bible. They did. In the early 1600s. And so this was a death sentence to do this because they didn't want people to be able to read and find out for themselves, you know, I don't think it says that. And this is what Martin Luther is very famous for having noticed. It doesn't say some of the things. And then Martin Luther got caught up in his own thing. By the end, you know, there's this fight about baptism and he says, well, somebody came to him and said, well, I don't think it says this. And so what did they do with him? Martin Luther was like, ah, and threw him in a well and left him to die there. And so this tendency, which is the desire for power, can corrupt you in this way. And then you have your secret understanding of things. So even the guy that saw the corruption in the late Catholic Church, late medieval Catholic Church, couldn't resist the temptation for the corruption himself when he had the power. So we have this secret gnosis or mine, you can call him philosopher kings, the credentialed class, and you must have the certificate from their club. Otherwise, you cannot mention. That's right. But if you do not think in the orthodoxy of the club, then we're going to destroy you. These are class defectors or academic, like you're an academic defector, right? That's right. You have the credential, but you don't share the orthodoxy. Right. And that's what we just saw from this Victor, she, I don't know how I pronounce his name, this Democrat. He's like he's like 19 or something. This young Democrat operative, he's big on Twitter, came out of nowhere, probably just straight up a psyops, probably a Fed. Yeah. And so this guy is like going off about this Joe Rogan, Peter Hotez, you know, meltdown that's going on that I call it the Hotez meltdown, as a matter of fact. And I have a mug of Peter Hotez mug. It says Hotez mad on it and a picture of him looking really angry. And the other side says fuel the mockery. We have that's what I'm saying. And so I have this I've literally got a custom mug, but he says, well, we have to we have these fools like Joe Rogan that don't have degrees. RFK is a conspiracy theorist. We don't listen to them. We need to listen to the people, the MDs, the doctors, the secret gnosis stuff. Exactly. And then in his next tweet, though, he's like, well, there are people with PhDs that are saying the other stuff, but we don't listen to them. And so that means they get to arbitrarily decide. Yes. That's exactly right. And who doesn't? When you layer a society not on wisdom or practical judgment, prudence or temperance, the great classical virtues, and instead you order society on credentialing. That's right. Then you get to decide who gets to speak. Now, yes, if you have a PhD in mathematics and we're talking about quantum theory, I'm going to take what you say very seriously, unless it's bunk. Yeah, well, if I come out here and tell you that, like, four plus five is six, you can correct me, even though I have a PhD. At the same time, there has been unspeakable terror done to humanity by people with PhDs that were unchecked by the common ordinary person like lobotomies. Well, yeah. And just one that comes to mind, gender affirming care or concentration camps or euthanasia. Frustrated academics are the most dangerous people in the universe. You put that on a bumper sticker. Frustrated academics are the most dangerous people in the universe. They know a lot of facts. They might have a lot of knowledge, but they don't have a lot of wisdom and they don't know what is good or evil. They don't believe in such things. I'm just in charge because I'm an academic. Who is this, Dr. Hotez? So Peter Hotez is a well, he's a big vaccine covid pusher, the vaccine peddler, right? He is one of the biggest peddlers. He works in Houston at one of these medical centers down there, Texas Children's Hospital. Yeah, I've forgotten all of his other details. Some tropical something or another with viruses. But he is one of the biggest covid vaccine peddlers. And so RFK just went on. Rogan is why he's suddenly famous. And RFK said a bunch of RFK stuff about the vaccines. And so Hotez goes after it on Twitter. So Rogan's like, was Hotez mentioned in the episode? I haven't listened. I don't think so. I haven't listened either. So he just imparted himself. He went on Twitter and was like, this guy's a crank. RFK is a conspiracy theorist. This is blah, blah, blah. And so Joe was like, come debate him and I'll throw a hundred thousand at charity. And now it's like over one and a half million or something like this. This guy's kind of become a meme of himself,.
Dr. James Lindsay and Charlie Unpack Corporate Liberalism
"James Lindsay is with us. He's the author of several books. He is prolific. I don't say that lightly. I read almost everything he publishes from new discourses to marksification of education, race, Marxism and cynical theories. Is that the whole canon? That's the whole canon. Yeah. For right now. Make sure you just get the mic up there, James. So happy Juneteenth, James. Is that what today is? Yes, that's true. Yeah, it is. I forgot. It's not important to me, so I forgot. And I think that this is an attitude, right? I feel like these kind of fake holidays, I mean, Juneteenth is a real holiday in Texas. Yes, but I mean, we know what this is. We know what this is. And so having forgotten that it exists, I think is kind of a is a key mentality that I think a lot of Americans should have. You know, speaking of forgetting that things exist, I'm sad. I'm sad to admit to our audience that as a family, we use Amazon more than we should. When you have a young kid, it's almost unavoidable. However, it was it's interesting. You know, I had to go pick something up at pottery barn kids and I had to leave, you know, gay stuff everywhere, pride, all that. By the way, Trevor Project, go donate. Oh, you have the A is for activist book. Have you seen that little baby book? I actually have a copy that one of your thoughts on totally out of control. And then I was just interested. I said, OK, went to Amazon .com and then Whole Foods. If you walked into Whole Foods, which I hate to say they do a good job. They really do. Their produce is excellent and all that. Even though it's run by an oligarchy. Not one thing, James. Is there something to this? Not a employee with a pride badge, not a flag, not a mention, not a you could donate to the chemical castration of a poor kid in Mississippi poster. What's going on here? Well, that's interesting. That's a really interesting feature of reality today, Charlie, because it seems like, you know. It's everywhere, but then there's certain places it's not which we see what it happens where it's everywhere, right? Like Bud Light's getting crushed. Target's getting crushed. Target is a competitor to places like these targets getting crushed. Amazon's not getting crushed. Amazon's not doing this. So you can kind of see that there's this game being played that may be pushing people towards certain vendors.

"Yeah. Amen. And so the has Mitt Romney made an announcement yet of whether or not he is he's going to to run? Yeah, I'm pretty sure he has, although it's one of those things that they're really trying to keep, you know, to the last minute is the it is the out, you know. And I really think they're they're trying to get the pulse on these polls. But really, the only people that put out polls in Utah are, you know, very in deep with with that wing of the party. So how reliable those polls are, I don't know. But, you know, they try to show, hey, you know, even though his favorability is dropping, you know, we still think he has a really good shot at reelection. But I think he knows he's in trouble and it doesn't seem like he's doing much at all to try communicate to with the grassroots or earn the base back at all. And so, you know, I'd be shocked if he did run again. It seems like almost everybody that I talk to here in Utah is convinced that he's not running again. But we'll see. You know, it's it's something they could drum something up and then have him, you know, run again or what could happen is he could drop out. And then Spencer Cox would would appoint his replacement until the end of the term, which is also something that happens a lot in Utah. Spencer Cox is no good. Gunner, I'm glad you're running. There is a promising theme happening. We just saw this in North Dakota of grassroots strong conservative patriots that are running and winning for National Committee Men's State Party chair. The moderates are being thrown out of the party and MAGA grassroots America first focused on the strong issues is ascendant. Gunner, thank you so much. Thanks, Charlie. And it's important to reiterate there is a significant disconnect between our elected leaders and the grassroots massive chasm, a significant disconnect. And this is about closing that gap. It's about giving the grassroots a voice and having the RNC be a people party gunner We want to highlight these stories as they pop up. You too can run for state party committee states, your state central committee. You too can run for national committee, but you could support someone that is. These matter so much. We have to do this state by state, by state, by state. Every state and territory have these races. And usually it's just kind of typical RNC insiders that dominate the grassroots are getting involved. And it is really making the stakeholders of a failed RNC corrupt regime nervous. The more people centric, the more grassroots centric the RNC is, it'll be healthier to hold our elected officials accountable and win..
Utah Wakes Up: Mitt Romney's Approval Rating Hits All-Time Low
"Gunnar, let's talk about, you know, Utah in particular. Obviously, we have Mitt Romney and it is a predominant LDS state. Are you starting to see trends or patterns that people in the LDS community want a stronger conservative agenda, not what Mitt Romney has been offering? Well, yeah, I mean, a recent poll just came out. His approval rating is lower than it's ever been. There's just been things that have been happening recently. I feel like, you know, where people are people are starting to wake up. You know, look, you can fool us once, but you're not going to fool us twice. And the people of Utah have really woken up. And we now have some some people who are stepping into Ron and some some great people like Mayor Trent Staggs, you know, who are stepping up and people are getting behind. So there's definitely some optimism to be had. I'm certainly optimistic that Utah is not going to be fooled twice. And the polls are really starting to show that.

His spirit, his love of this country, he's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA.

Well, first, thanks for having me on Charlie, it's always great to be here. You know, I joke with my wife, I've been involved with Turning Point in some form or fashion longer than we've been married. It's a long, long relationship that I've come to love and I think it was 11 years we just celebrated, wasn't it? That's right. So congratulations, man. It's incredible what you've been able to accomplish with Turning Point USA and I'm just happy to be involved in some way, shape or form. But yeah, in Utah, I'm sure you've seen, we've been dealing with just the craziest situation where the grassroots just feel like, you know, we're completely disenfranchised. You've got this sort of, you know, wing of a party, this rhino class that forcing stuff down our throats that nobody in Utah wants, like this woke flag, like porn in schools that has taken way too long to even get removed and still hasn't been removed. They're now trying to remove the Bible. And it's just it's issue after issue where the grassroots is like, look, we this is not our GOP, so no one's donating anymore. It's just apathy all around. And so I'm running in hopes that we can bring some trust back to the Utah GOP and show that, look, with this young representation and with the grassroots back in charge, people are going to start donating again..

You know, I joke with my wife, I've been involved with Turning Point in some form or fashion longer than we've been married. It's a long, long relationship that I've come to love and I think it was 11 years we just celebrated, wasn't it? That's right. So congratulations, man. It's incredible what you've been able to accomplish with Turning Point USA and I'm just happy to be involved in some way, shape or form. But yeah, in Utah, I'm sure you've seen, we've been dealing with just the craziest situation where the grassroots just feel like, you know, we're completely disenfranchised. You've got this sort of, you know, wing of a party, this rhino class that forcing stuff down our throats that nobody in Utah wants, like this woke flag, like porn in schools that has taken way too long to even get removed and still hasn't been removed. They're now trying to remove the Bible. And it's just it's issue after issue where the grassroots is like, look, we this is not our GOP, so no one's donating anymore. It's just apathy all around. And so I'm running in hopes that we can bring some trust back to the Utah GOP

Dinesh Reflects on the Teachings of Thomas Sowell
"I talked a day or two ago about Thomas soul and it's for me it sort of refreshing to do this in contrast with critical race theory. And of course, there's a new book out on Seoul. It's called maverick a biography of Thomas sol, it's written by The Wall Street Journal writer, a Jason Riley, and I've kind of been making my way through the book. But as I do, it also flashes my mind back to my friendship with Seoul over the years. And the way that he has been a mentor to me. Years ago, when I published my book at the end of racism, this, by the way, is my most scholarly book. If you haven't read it, it's. A giant book, several hundred pages, 2000 footnotes. And the book was a little controversial because it talked about the reason why you have group differences in academic achievement and economic performance. It attributed those differences not to race, not to biology, but the culture. Even so, Glenn Lowry, prominent black scholar who was at that time affiliated with the American enterprise institute, another guy named bob Woodson resigned from AEI, they sort of, they broke with AEI and it was a supposedly all over my horrible book, and at that time I was, you know, this was only my second book. I was a young scholar, so it was kind of a problematic for me to have these luminaries distancing themselves from AEI was causing problems for AEI, but to my defense rushed the greatest black living scholar in the country, Thomas soul, who basically said that he had read the book extremely carefully, and it was the best book on race relations written since Gunnar modals classic work in American dilemma, published several decades earlier. Over the years, I got to know soul and his wife quite well, his wife is also an economist. And I thought interesting as I would talk to them about racial discrimination and they would go, you know, dinesh when people think of race discrimination cases. They think of the sort of classic civil rights situation going back to the 50s and 60s a black guy and a white guy apply for a job, the black guy is better qualified the white guy gets the job. Hey, that's racial discrimination. And they go out of a hundred cases dinesh today, only one or two I like that. The vast majority of cases have nothing to do with that at all. They are all based upon statistical issues of underrepresentation. So a black eye applies to our job. He's actually not qualified. He doesn't get the job. But then he sues and he claims that blacks are underrepresented this corporation and because blacks are, let's say, 12% of the surrounding population in San Jose, but he wasn't hired at this Silicon Valley company. They're obviously racist. They need to implement affirmative action policies, so both soul and his wife said that is actually the normative. That's the normal case that is now fought out in

I love watching quarterback play. I love watching these young guys develop and turn into stars. But ah, the joy I feel when I watch Joe burrow, not only play quarterback, but like talk and share his personality. Who he is as a quarterback is so entertaining and moving and I just like, man, go watch that video. Joe burrow Mike dub against the Jaguars. You'll be like, dude, this guy has got it. He's awesome.

How do you spend Washington if anybody doesn't know he played in their national championship appearance? Super interesting to see him call the plays to Eric berry a wondering if you're going to cover eastern Washington versus Montana. It's a rare game where an FCS school is on TV. With it being a former school you went to along with how the game went with eastern winning in dramatic fashion and storming the field, would love to hear you talk about it on your show and the first time that people saw the red turf.

And Christian wilkerson, he's gonna have to pass through waivers and it sounds like there is going to be a little bit of interest in Christian wilkerson across the league. Maybe not enough to get him signed through a 53, but I do think there's a possibility that Christian wilkerson will get claimed. If they do cut him, so that's an element of it is that we have to think as well. But gun rose, the one thing I want to stress and I know fans are soured on him as a wide receiver because of the drops. And I totally understandable. But the one thing I want to stress is, if you look at, let's just I know we always say Julian Edelman's career and compared to gunners and it's for a good reason, but also lofty, right? But let's just take Julian Edelman's career trajectory for a second. And open pray that gunner can follow a somewhat similar patty. He's not gonna be as good, but as somewhat similar path, catching the football and working on your hands while you're converting to wide receiver is the final step, right? Learning how to run routes, learning how to get open, learning how to create separation, learning how to break and how to run an in cut as Troy Brown said the couple weeks ago about gun royal shaved ski. That's item number one on the list. And Gunnar has this summer proven that he can get open, right? He's gotten better at that. And that to me, I got a little bit more breaking news here. What do we got? The Patriots are releasing Bill Murray. Okay, he actually had decent at camp there. I didn't think he was gonna make the team. But he did something to camp there. Me, I didn't think he was gonna be kind. Murray's likely to land on New England's practice squad of Doc claimed. Wow, so I just broke it on the air and didn't have enough time to be done. Oh, you were. I thought you were reading that off Twitter. No. So Bill Murray waved, we'll get to that in the defensive line here in a second. Let's wrap this up on the wire receivers though.

I'm i don't know what i'm thinking out but just wanted to correct myself there but okay. So what advice you know kristie you have for someone wanting to turn an idea into a business. Yes yeah for sure I can ask that question all the time. I did it in how i think it is a great way to do. It is to start small scarred as a side hustle and improve it first before you go all in on it so That's that's how done it with with both businesses My wife started extremely small. I think she spent five hundred dollars to start the business I shake it was the same way though. started as a side hustle and idea that i had I invested what i thought was you know a very small amount at that time To get it started in one house able to then prove the model and get to a place where i could support myself off that income that i went all in and that point to go all in and be ready for a lot of ups and downs roller coaster ride but You know be passionate about what you're doing. That's kind of how i how side-hustle starts to find something you love doing and then find a way to make money in what you love doing For me it was working out on the ice. The bottle itself out. I never thought that was going to be my way into sports and fitness and it worked out but You know just from passionate and gladly do and i just kind of stumbled upon the opportunity and then went all on it so That's that's what i tell people. Just be bashing about what you're doing started all you don't need a brand new idea with all these crazy pants and stuff are you need to do is is start small find a way to make it work and they build on it right because you've got to keep your expenses really low. You know maybe unless you and you don't i typically. I don't think unless you're go. Hey shark tank is different but typically partnerships. Don't work that well and it's always good to just keep it small right. Keep your expenses low. And then you don't have all that additional pressure on you right did you. Did you have. Did you feel a lot of pressure initially when you started your company. You're a little scared at first if knock is The second company was you know the money out spending on it was just not even anything that would make a dent in what we what we had so No that's i feel comfortable doing it. It wasn't a lot I think maybe my first purchase with setting everything up ten thousand dollars At that point. So i didn't go crazy with it It wasn't anything that. If i lost that money wasn't gonna lose my house or anything like that. So comfortable amount for us and and that's why there wasn't any pressure there as well That's kind of in you really. You could start anywhere. It just takes longer more money upfront. Sometimes but you can always start as small as possible and just keep building and building money back into it. And i remember when we opened the first piece of patrol. We didn't even we didn't chris. We didn't even have the money to finish the counter but we we had the oven and we had to make table and we and we paid the rent. We opened the doors and we start selling pizza. You know and then you know ten years into that came with wingstop and the rest is history but you know it we start small. You know and it's funny. You know you start with with plane boxes. Then you have the money to get printed or custom boxes it it's just kinda crazy. So many great stories entrepreneurial stories Especially here in america. You know and i do still believe that anyone out there listening. If they've got a good idea the passion and the focus they can achieve the american dream. Would you agree absolutely page.

At any point you wanted to quit for sure for shipping came in and Half of it. I had to actually replace every lead on it because of it was defective so good example of just. If i didn't have a lot of passion for doing i would've just stopped right then and there but Yeah it's it's been definitely a roller coaster. Ride lots of ups and downs. And it's it's not easy so you'd better love what you're doing As an entrepreneur. You're going up. You're going to be at one of those that bethnal most of them fail and the reason is because of that is it is a crazy ride so you better really like what you're doing.

Us seems to be a leader in cystic fibrosis and really trail-blazing the way especially for these treatments and medications and that other countries certainly benefit from that but just the healthcare system in the way that it's set up and just the cystic fibrosis like communities and organizations are probably not as active as you know it is in the us. The simple fact that matters the cystic fibrosis foundation to be recognized.

"gunnar" Discussed on Boomer & Gio
"You're fighting a straw man argument. I know but if you if you listen to the players you know you. Have you have an incident. Promise you up four. And they're all over the league. That's that's the issue you know. I mean but and they're one guy throwing something is is a big deal. I thought i thought trae young's take on it and trae young's dad take on. It was amazing. Was i k- fueled by alcohol. You know it's unfortunate and portray young. He wants to play basketball and we should all be sitting there watching this kid saying wow. Wow he's he's a spectacular player this it's lp j. license plate guy joins us what's going on guy what's up everybody. Good morning good morning. Hey man i gotta. I gotta tell you there is. There is no room for that kind of behavior that players take enough abuse verbally. I just i just don't see any reason to throw rifle. You know anything at a player. I do think that they should be banned. I do think they are they are. They're all being dealt with what i what. I don't agree with this. In some cases you know the people that gave him the tickets lose their tickets and that's not fair to the people that own those tickets. Yeah you know what though. It's one of those things where you gave a ticket to this moron and now you're going to have to pay. I mean. I don't actually blame anybody for that if you're going to get your seat that you own and you gave it to get so drunk and belligerent. That they're throwing stuff players like they're going to go to the degrade to punish every aspect of that so it doesn't happen again. Thanks joe i had four tickets for the rangers. We used to give them the donner. And if you wanna take his friends or sydney if she wanted to take her friends yeah you know and it was always an understanding that when you go there you you're going to behave yourself and you're going to enjoy the gaming. Cheer your team on and it never would. I have ever expected any of gunners friends ever crony thing. But if i give my son the tickets at he takes three buddies with them and one of his buddies is smashed in the attic gunners control and he hurls a bottle onto the onto the ice. I mean but that that could be the case here. But you never know. That's never going to happen because it's you set that standard. You set that expectation with gunnar and his friends. Gunnar pick good friends. You know it all goes all the way back in the how you raise your kids like in you show up at a game like that. And you're acting in that manner chances. Are you completely blitzed. You're someone who's a jerk to begin with like the my point is that it's never going to happen in your seats with your key. I do you think. Do you think that the kid that threw the bottle at kyrie you think that he had no upper level seats and made his way down towards the end. You know when everybody's leaving around around and everything came down and specifically through that bottle of kyri to be the case. I mean if it was his family's tickets. And i could see him losing him if he bought it on stub. Then no the person who bought it on stub hub. Whatever but my point is that. There's only certain. Instances should lose their tickets if they weren't there but tell you what the nba does have problem though they you know it is. It's obvious this is what but you were kind of saying the opposite earlier about how is you know. It's one person here one person they're not sixteen thousand people coming i..
"gunnar" Discussed on Boomer & Gio
"Boomer and geo last night corey kluber yankees getting in on the action. You probably heard about it by now did happen last night. And we've been talking about it all morning we've been going through all the no hitters in yankees history actually and we've been ranking them in you can check out. Wfan dot com. We haven't been doing steve liechtenstein. Yeah okay what. So by the way six no hitters against three teams same three teams the rangers in the middle pack in terms of hitting but the indians and the mariners the mariners collectively as team or batting under two hundred. So you think the mets are bad and the yankees are having troubles. How about if you're a seattle mariners fan. Yeah well they got jared kelanic though so those things will turn up when he winds five and ps aerobics. The indians batting average is two thirteen. Apparently the yankees are the fifth worst hitting team in the american league with a collective batting average of two twenty seven fifth worst. Yeah no it is unbelievable. Actually but i guess if you watch the game just totally believable. But it's unbelievable that that's the situation we're in so the mets are the sixth worst. Were the six lowest man. We have just gone through some really bad. Baseball's you have the both teams winning records show. The interesting thing is that a lot of teams haven't really been hitting it's the worst collective batting average in the history of the game to this point. So they they screwed with the baseball's or is it because strikeouts are up and spin raiders. Better for the pitchers. What is it like most thing. Most things in life boomer's a little bit of everything. Yeah it's a little bit of both. There isn't one specific answer. I think it's a little bit of everything how he is in merrick.

Patriots Special Teams Help Shut Out Los Angeles
"Couple of things from this game. I wanted to highlight the Special Teams. I will say I know a lot of people are looking at the Chargers and saying well the Chargers are terrible and that's true. But let's not forget Gunner olszewski should have had a touchdown against the Cardinals as well the week before if it was just Blindside block whether it was a legit call or not, you know, hey, that's what happened and it would have been a touchdown. So now that's two straight weeks that we've seen Gunner olszewski have three really good punt returns. I do think that means something because how many years did we sit around and say man, can they just find somebody other than Julian Edelman that could first field upon and then second make a play and I thought the second returned by Gunnar olszewski. It was a great job by him. You know, I do think if you get a little nerdish inside of what happened the touchdown return that's because the Patriots play games with the Chargers. They had, you know, they brought what looked like it was going off. And all blocked punt and that was to bring the Gunners in and because the Gunners came in on that formation thinking that the Patriots were going to try to block the punt. They couldn't get down field in time to get to Gunner Gunner gets a touchdown the second return that Gunner had that was really good. That was Gunner, you know setting up his blocks the hesitation move being patient. So I do think there's something that you can take from it. Are you going to get touchdowns every week? Of course not but if somebody can actually feel pumped consistently in maybe give this offense better field position Greg that's huge because we know this offense is not been consistent. So if you can get some extra yardage from a special teams, especially on the punt unit. I do think that means something
Interview With Gunnar Breivik
"And im your host not gotten meaningful. Sport is a series of discussions on the y and how involvement is sport than physical activity can be an important part of a life worth living. If you are interested in the theme you might also want to check out meaningful sport dot com there. You can find podcast. Show notes read a blog and access many resources for further explorations of meaningful sport. This is the third and the final part of our discussion with goon. Who is a professor emeritus. At the norwegian school of sport sciences professor bribes work has been foundational in philosophy of sport and it was a great honor for me to have him in the podcast sharing his thoughts and and his exciting work. I will briefly sum up the previous episodes in case you haven't listened to them already. Part one was an exploration of heidegger philosophy and how it can be applied to our thinking. Round sport goner charities working on technology of the sporting human being which builds upon heidegger philosophy but also extends into novel new directions. That can help us understand how we find ourselves in the sporting world in the second part we discussed heidegger notion of authenticity. An how governor has used the when exploring skydiving. We also discussed existentialist ideas about breakdown and temporarily and how to apply these ideas in sport and today in this third and final part of our discussion. We move away from existentialism and focus on ecological sport which has been one of the key topics of goners. Most recent work concerns of sustainability are among the pressing concerns of our collective human agenda worldwide. But what would ecologically sustainable and ecologically acceptable sport. Look like how much do we need to rethink the way we practice sport or even the fundamental ideas of sport. You know a society. Let's listen to what gunar has to say. I think now it would be really a nice time point to talking time so Let's let's move on a little bit to discuss Some of your reason work. You have written about this already a long time ago. But now you have In in some of your reason work started to connect sports. today's pressing global concerns about sustainability. And an and what is going to happen to our our planet as a whole in terms of the environmental crisis. So you've pointed an inspired philosophy With few exceptions there hasn't been Discussions about what is what would be an ecologically acceptable or sustainable sport. And what would it look like. And so One of the things that you have drawn upon in your own work of exploring this ecological sustainable sport mr norwegian philosopher hardness so Let's let's start explorations of the that topic area and you can. You can tell a little bit more about the arneses work on on deep ecology whether on unnecessity interesting in many ways First of all he will set a leading national philosopher when he discovered so to say the importance of the the new science of ecology which came up in the sixties of the costumes.

The return of wolves to Yellowstone Park
"Problem since ancient times, they've been portrayed fables and legends and the bible as fearsome voracious predators. The story of the big bad wolf may be the most memorable. And frightening of all the fairy tales told by the brothers Grimm that grim reputation actually produced a very real result in America in the early twentieth. Century wolves were wiped off the landscape trapped poisoned and hunted until there was not a single one left in the American west when the National Park Service decided to bring wolves back to Yellowstone park in the nineteen nineties it followed a bitter debate between wildlife groups who wanted them restored. And ranchers who most definitely didn't two decades later, the wolves of Yellowstone still stirs strong emotions, but they've also had an impact that almost no one saw. Coming. In the dead of winter Yellowstone park is a beautiful, but forbidding place howling wind subzero temperatures, six feet of snow. Just finding enough food survive is a profound struggle for every animal waterfowl bison, elk foxes. They all have to work for every morsel. Yellowstone was the world's first national park. Founded in eighteen seventy two and remains one of the most visited millions of people come here every summer, but they used to pretty much leave it to the wildlife in the winter until the wolves came back behind the treatment. Now reports of a wolf citing can produce a traffic jam along the one fifty mile stretch of road. The park service keeps opening the winter. Visitors with spotting scopes gather in absolutely frigid weather for a momentary long distance view Bellevue came from Germany to see wolf, Doug. Smith runs the Yellowstone wolf research program for the park service. And no one predicted. This would happen actually we indeed the appeal of coming in to see the wolves. Yes. And it truly has been amazing and hundreds of thousands of people a year, we estimate come here. Justice sequels. Tourism pumps thirty five million dollars a year into the local economy much of it spent in the winter, which is prime wolf watching time we've seen flows all three days we've been out Glenn. My is a retired FBI agent from Arlington Virginia. Kathy lumbar is a retired cop from New Hampshire. They both paid an outfitter thousands of dollars to take them with watching. So what is it about wolves that bring you all the way out here from New Hampshire to sit out here and just hope for the chance to see them. They've been able to burn wolves back into Yellowstone and they've thrived. So that's just an awesome thing to see. It was January twelfth nineteen ninety five when the first gray wolves captured in Canada were carried into Yellowstone park. It drew both national attention and fierce opposition so much that armed guards were posted to protect those wolves. So the first walls released into Yellowstone park or released rightback here in this thicket. Yes, so total forty one over three years. How many are in the park. Now, we've got ninety six and ten packs, and it's been roughly a hundred wolves the last ten years very stable, those ten packs of about ten wolves each are without a doubt, the most closely observed and studied wolves on earth our goal is to keep touch with each pack. That's our goal. They do that by trying to attach radio collars to at least two wolves in each of the parks packs. So you fly. The airplane. Find wolves in the open that airplane radios, a waiting helicopter on the ground. The helicopter flies out with a gun in the back seat. That Gunnar is almost always Smith himself. And you fly up alongside that wolf, and you should tranquilizing dart into it. Five minutes. It goes down. We process the wolves. We take blood. We measure them we look at their health, and we attach a radio collar, and then we follow them for their life. Hopefully that life by the way typically lasts about five years. You'll Allstone wolves are fears and territorial the leading cause of death is a tax from other wolves. And their look is uncontrollable that look says I ain't going to conform to your rules. And I'll die before I do, and that's powerful. That is a location of a wolf data from the radio callers has helped Smith team to learn volumes about wolf behavior. Folder is by them. It also helps all those wolf watchers. Find them truck service employees. Rick McIntyre is out every day listening for signals that is from a black. Male Wolfram revenues seven and then spreading the word. Did you like to see a gray well of two okay? So it's a little bit right of center. Oh, yeah. Oh, look here comes a whole pack. Wow. To receive you can count the mall. It would be to graze six blocks four five six black ones and the white one that went by in the should be a second gray. How 'bout that? We had spotted the junction Butte pack, along a ridge line about two miles away. Like most packs, it's led by an alpha, male and alpha female, the only two wolves in pack who mate with each other greyhounds, a female is still leading to the right? And you see how the ones behind are playing. She's determined to lead them to the west. They're running along the top right along the real. Yeah. That's magnificent. We can see these wolves from the ground, and it's been a sensation. So we've learned a lot about packed dynamics and personalities and how social they are. What do you mean describe that for me? They won. Wannabe together, their pack animal. So the power of the wolf is the pack. Nowhere is that power more evident than when a wolf pack is on the hunt for elk its favorite prey they worked together because they have to your average wolf weighs one hundred pounds or so, but your average prey animal is much bigger, but below seven hundred fifty pounds a colleagues five hundred so house of roughly one hundred hundred twenty pound animal going to take that down. They do it. Doug Smith says both by coordinating their attack and by zeroing in on Volna, Rable, pray. They're going to take the week. So they're making their living off of calf elk old elk injured, elk without wolves. There was an overpopulation of Elkin Yellowstone as wolves have cut the size of those hurts. There's been an unexpected side effect plants that elk. Feed on have made a comeback which has in turn produced benefits for other species. All the little trees have come back since we'll recover this Goey filled with shrubs has all come back since we'll recovering and the wolves are a factor in all of that very simply put wolves Email elk eat this when the L kit reduced the eat less so beavers and songbirds can respond to the growth in that vegetation. And it's Doug Smith is quick to say that it's not as simple as he just made it sound, but that hasn't stopped some environmentalists from declaring wolves the saviors of Yellowstone's ecology. There's some people who will try to convince you that wolves could probably solve Mideast peace and world hunger. Randy Newberg is a Montana hunter who hosts the TV show and podcast four hunters. He remembers how emotional the debate over reintroduction. In was between wolf haters and wolf lovers wolves are wolves. They aren't the big bad wolf, and they don't have rainbow shooting out there asking like everyone would think they do. There's something romantic about a wolf, right? Bless you've seen it chewing on a live cow. Eric Costa's family has been raising cattle and sheep one this Montana rent for one hundred years. He says he was worried from the moment the first roles will brought back to Yellowstone, which is about one hundred miles to the south. You know, they weren't going to stay in the part. They're wild animal their go or they want to go. I'm sure you knew it was only a matter of time before they were going to get here. Oh, yes. There was no doubt. And there was a set of tracks. Very well cost a new that wolves would follow migrating elk out of Yellowstone and onto his ranch and that they attack his livestock if given the chance he started hiring range writers to watch over his cattle, and he bought guard dogs to help keep wolves away from his sheep live sheep, pay for things. Live cattle pay for things deadwood and stole his defensive measures have kept wolves away from his livestock, but neighboring ranchers have lost both cattle and sheep to wolves. The thing that's never monitored. When I talked to these people is the loss nights of sleep. The nervousness. We'll track on my place today, or I actually saw wolf wolves around you can't measure compensate for that are wolf attacks on livestock, a serious problem. No. It's rare that it happens. But if it's happening to you. It's a serious problem. It was that fear of wolf attacks that drove ranchers and settlers to eradicate them in the early twentieth century after the Endangered Species Act was passed in one thousand nine hundred seventy three wolves were among the first to be listed and a campaign began to restore them to Yellowstone park after that happened in the nineties wolves quickly spread out of Yellowstone and into neighboring states, so many that there are now nearly two thousand in Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho after a long and bitter legal battle, those states finally won the authority to manage and sometimes kill wolves outside the national park has. This management of the wolves helped to lessen some of those passions to calm, some of those emotions I think so so to have wolves you have to kill the wolves and some situations. Yes. The first situation is cut and dried any wolves that attack livestock are immediately killed themselves. I think that's hoped a lot at least with the ranching community and people feel better if they're not powerless to deal with something and then wolves are hunted. There's hunting season on wolves all three states have. So having wolves be hunted has probably increased people's willingness to share the landscape with them two of them. Randy Newberg is living proof of that. He filmed a wolf hunt a few years ago for his TV show. It took him eleven days and one hundred miles of trudging and tracking through the snow. You went out looking. For a wolf and saw how smart they are. How cunning they are how athletic they are. If you wanna increase your respect for world's going chase them out on their landscape, hunters and ranchers and avid wolf watchers. Rarely see I'd y but they know agree on at least one thing. We've got a gray wolves are back in Yellowstone for good. People love this. You know, we live in an artificial world. It's stores and cars and roads and buildings wolves are real and people crave. It they love it. We almost have this thirst for something real now.
