A highlight from Gavin Wax
"Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original, something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Metaxas. Wow. It's Monday. Happy Monday. Do you know where you are? You're in New York City. No. I got to tell you something. I've been saying the same thing, but I've been so busy that it gets to a point where it's unhealthy. So, folks, feel free. I covet your intercession. If you don't understand that phrase, good. I covet your intercession because it's been tough. Good stuff, but last week I was in Omaha, Nebraska. This weekend I was in Colorado Springs. I want to talk about that. Just to let you know, in hour one today, in a couple of minutes, we're talking to Gavin Wax. He's the head of the New York Young Republicans Club. We're going to be talking about Israel, current events, Biden, Trump, everything current events, and he's terrific, so in a couple of minutes. In hour two, we're talking to the world's tallest man that we've ever interviewed. He is seven feet tall, and when he came into the studio, I got physically frightened. Suddenly I felt like a mouse, and I ran. You grabbed his harp and you ran out of the castle. And I clambered down the beanstalk, and then I realized, no, that was all in my head. But he's seven feet tall. I want to be clear, John Disneyland has a lot of things to say. We don't talk about his height, but I want to tell you, Nehemiah Strong, he wrote a book called Nehemiah Strong. I won't say anything except it is fantastic, fantastic, and we've got to have him back. He's an amazing man, but he is the tallest person I've ever interviewed, and we decided that he's the tallest person I'm ever going to interview. We're putting a cap on it, so anybody who is taller than seven feet, if you say, we emailed the program, we sent you our book, I'm sorry, those are the rules. John Disneyland is the tallest person I'm ever going to interview, okay? We had to cap it. At some point, it gets out of hand. It's like a limbo pole. It's like if you go any higher, you're out. Something like that, or the opposite. But honestly, we just had to put a cap on it. You've got to have limits. You've got to make rules, folks. Seven feet, that's it. I'm sorry, okay? I don't make the rules, except in this case I did. All right, so that's what we have coming up today, really, really strong conversations. Tomorrow, in hour one, I have a next -level conversation with the great Naomi Wolf. You'll see. That's hour one tomorrow. She's a big deal. She's a gift to this country at this time, I got to tell you. Later on in the week, we have Doug Giles. He's the hippie -dippie weatherman that kills lions. Always fun. Yes. We've got a lot of guests coming up. And then tomorrow, we're filming, this week, we're filming some Socrates in the Studio events, which I can't say too much about that. But in December, we're launching a streaming platform, Socrates Plus. So exciting. And we're going to be posting some of these things. Heather McDonald, Anthony Bradley, whom I know from the King's that we're finally doing some Socrates in the Studio events. But to get back to where I've been, I was in Omaha. I spoke at Hank Kunneman's church last week. I emailed Pastor Hank and his wife, Brenda. I said, you know, I'm going to be in Omaha for this event with the Speravita Institute. By the way, the Speravita Institute, amazing, amazing. I keep meeting these heroes. It was incredible. But so I spoke at Pastor Hank's church. I just went to dinner. They said, oh, we have a Wednesday night service. Would you preach? So I did. Then we went to Colorado Springs for Jim Dobson, who is a living legend and a great American hero. Doesn't get greater. He puts on a thing at the Broadmoor Hotel every year called The Gathering. The Gathering sounds like creepy a seventies movie. The Gathering, right? Yeah, it does. Yeah, The Gathering. I think it's a I think it's a role playing game that you buy packs of The Gathering. Yeah. Were there robes and hoods? Yeah, I thought of I thought of a title for a for a bad horror film called The Blooding. I knew Chris would laugh. The Blooding. Yeah. The Gathering. Anyway. Anyway, so you brought hearing you brought your amulets to The Gathering. Yes. The Jim Dobson puts us on every year. And I want to say Charlie Kirk spoke. And he just you know, he's got nothing new. He's it's a lot of fluff, basically. A lot of a lot of fluff. No, he's such he's such a wonderful. It's such a joy to to hear Charlie. Ben Carson spoke. Jack Hibbs spoke. I put this on on Twitter and on Instagram. But to be around folks like that is so encouraging because there's they're saying a lot of what I'm saying. And I realized they didn't get it from me. This is God speaking, you know, some truth to encourage us. So it was it was wonderful. I spoke on Saturday night, followed by Gary Bauer. Gary Bauer. We got to get him on the program. Gave a speech. I just thought this was so amazing. It was such an amazing speech because normally I go places on the speaker. I don't get to hear people. And it was absolutely amazing. There was also a video from the new speaker, Mike Johnson. Incredible. We're going to be talking about him with Gavin Wax today. But honestly, it was it was it was such a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful thing. But we've got to get Gary Bauer here in the studio because some of the stuff he spoke about, I just thought it was just beautiful, powerful, powerful stuff. And he's taken on a position with the James Dobson Family Institute. So anyway, OK, that was that was incredible. And then your wife joined you, too, which is always fun. And Suzanne joined me, which is always fun and wonderful that we get to travel together. She may go with me next week to Dallas. I'll be in Dallas. I'll be in Chicago at the end of this week. Next week, I'm in Dallas, the Council for Life. After that, going to Washington, D .C., Intercessors for America. Dutch Sheets will be speaking at that. I'll be speaking at that.

We just I did an interview last week with this Trump impersonator guy. I don't remember his name, John John D. Domenico. Yeah. Ladies and gentlemen, trust me, like he is so great. It was so funny. It got a zillion views on rumble like it got it got 10 times as many views as we normally get. What's great about John is I think he's one of the best impersonators out there for Trump. I think a lot of people just memorize bits. He actually can improvise in the voice like he's done it so long. He knows that's no that's the genius is that you could say anything. And I was asking him like real journalistic questions and he responds no matter what you throw at him. You don't want to miss it if you if it's if well, it's on rumble and also we're going to rerun it, too. We'll rerun it. But you got to you got to go to Eric. Folks, don't make me beg.

we're gonna do a quick for this series I mean this will be this will air while I'm on paternity leave so we're having twins one week from this recording of this episode yeah jingle your balls less than one week six days jingling all the way did you say jingle your ball yeah do it now while you can exactly so basically we're gonna do a quick gauntlet of episodes there'll be a little more bite-sized episode but basically that way we have new content while I'm away you guys can enjoy some stuff so but it'll go be a little bit shorter but not a lot of shorter yeah because you got Sean Jordan is actually on the SpaceX rocket right now I know he is in low orbit right now just left hovering yeah yeah yeah I mean he spit a lot of inheritance to get up there but good for him for you yeah he spit a lot of inheritance to he did both and he was a disgusting sight but he got up there yeah hey astronauts need hookers to John's proud to fulfill that role okay so some quick info we're drinking A to Z Riesling which is from the Willamette Valley in Oregon this is a holiday centric wine it is it's nice I mean it's how would you how sweet would you describe this it's not over if you're going for like one to ten I don't know I guess like I've had some white wines like white blends that would be sweet I don't even know where I would put this app I mean it's on the sweeter end of a white wine maybe six or seven six it was like it's it's not cuz anytime sure getting the sevens and eight you're like yeah certain deck almost like dessert wine or those sweet red wines yeah but this one's you know six not not juicy fruits gonna move you tasting this it's like this go really well like a honey baked ham oh I don't know if I'd want other sweetness with this I won't be able sweet ham is the most first of all me it's a little salty I think you have a couple glasses you won't care yeah that's true but yeah this is probably this is a $15 Riesling it's a pretty good price if you're looking for a Riesling that's a little on the drier side try cabinet if you're looking for something sweeter trying to isolate so from Germany but this one I think it's kind of in between those two yeah good spell K maybe I need to know okay I thought you were trying to say cabinet I was like I don't know if you knew that he said yeah that'd be awesome if I like worked at the wine store all those years and this didn't rise as an R in there yeah so a little bit of info about hook we'll go through this a little bit quickly but book was released December 11th 1991 chat 32 years ago god I'm old I saw opening weekend I don't know if I did I know I saw in theater I was very I mean I probably did yeah yeah I was very excited my first Spielberg movie had I ever saw in the theater yeah this was the first movie I ever saw three times in theaters really the next one was blade in 1998 nice and then the first spider-man I saw like five times in theaters I was never been topped since I was expecting something random like you know Miss congeniality to know so the first one theaters never again no okay so this girl's 300 million dollars worldwide against a budget of 70 rumored budget of 70 million if you look up different sources they'll put it as high as 80 or 90 million it was one most expensive movies ever made when it came out it ran way over budget and way behind schedule which is rare for Steve Spielberg he's almost type-a directors working he's notorious for going under budget ahead of schedule so this is a rare thing where it's like they they were behind schedule this had been a project for Spielberg for a decade it was in development hell for years before it actually got made Spielberg almost opted out of this movie completely to direct the movie big with Tom Hanks but he decided don't come back to this one then hooks premise is something that would basically cause most movie executives to write a blank check it's a sequel to Peter Pan with Robin Williams as the adult version of the character Dustin Hoffman as Captain Hook and Julie Roberts as Tinkerbell and pretty much all three actors are in their peak form yeah and peak popularity this is all the men in their primes the through the movie is basically divided into three very different acts where the first act has hook or a hook Robin Williams is a middle-aged Peter Banning who is a corporate raider you know he drinks too much he works too hard he doesn't pay attention to his family he goes to England where his you know he's an orphan his caretaker played by Maggie Smith's getting a big award and when she's getting her award at the same time did everybody else cry at the same time it's like I cried did I get to you yeah I don't know where they all stood up I was like oh my god this movie just started fuck this getting all misty while that's happening mysterious figure breaks into the granny Wendy's house and takes the kids from their beds they come home and the police can do nothing they offer no real clues and that's when granny Wendy drops a bomb on Peter and says he she is granny Wendy or she's windy from the Peter Pan stories but Jan Berry and he is Peter Pan and he has forgotten his true identity and Phil Collins works for Phil Collins has a cameo yeah yes and David Crosby this is one of the pirates yeah and Glenn Close obviously that that one's I think a little more well-known at this point yeah and so basically she says he has to go back to Neverland get his kids and he has to relearn how to fly fight and crow that sets up a very long second act of movie where he goes to Neverland courtesy of Tinkerbell played by Julia Roberts supposedly she was a nightmare of making this movie she was very I could do that to work with Spielberg is an actress director and he never he said he would never work with her again because she was so temperamental difficult to work with leaving so I don't think I've ever heard him say that about any other actor supposedly he's unofficially said about Tom Cruise but that's just a rumor so so basically it's a long second act he meets the Lost Boys including Rufio all the other yeah Dante Bosco uh-huh and I like how I just agreed with that yeah uh-huh like a porn name Dante Bosco with the tweety bird that I had so well because he does the voice of Prince Zuko and Avatar the Last Airbender I'd see his name Dante Bosco I was like man that sounds cool if he was a porn star do you and then that in turn sets up the the third act of movie which is I mean alternately very silly and very violent I mean there's a key character death in there that I can't believe that they killed a certain character at the end of that a little bit dark for kids now we'll get to that in a minute so basically that's what I have for notes what do you guys think I'm so you guys have seen this both a billion times yeah so take start with you so every watched about a week ago and first off Dustin Hoffman I went through watching that movie for decades not knowing he was hook yeah I mean for forever yeah and it was like I think I mean I'm talking like I'm it might be like 15 year 10 15 years ago so half my watching time of that I just never thought it was him and I was like holy shit that's Dustin Hoffman yeah and so that was so funny as a kid you don't really know who these actors are I mean he knew who Robin Williams was at the time and Julia Roberts but it was like I had no idea about Dustin Hoffman anyway he's awesome by the way yeah I've never seen this in theaters and not in liking it but not really under understanding it like the story when you're a kid all you want to do is see him it's like it it's like the Disney cartoon all you want to see is the young Peter going around doing stuff you know fighting and just messing with Captain Hook yeah so when there was a storyline I was like what the fuck is I just remember being like what is all this story stuff but then when he goes and if like finds himself when he actually you know learn how to crow you're like oh this is badass this is fun then you only get this huge battle scene kind of in the third act so I don't know why it always I thought the movie just kept growing for me every year I watched it like I appreciated it more and more and more and I watched it this time I was like I like how you said it was like a really long second act cuz I thought that when I watched it I was like man they were I forgot like this the early parts telling the story hook coming in the scratch on the wall it's like I said I'm here for kind of forget these things and then I really was like I was like damn this movies like how long is this movie I've kind of forgotten hours and 20 minutes yeah I was like long for kids yeah I mean not necessarily kids but yeah guys I thought that in the middle I was like damn we are really trying to set this story up about how he needs to learn how to be a kid again and I was like man we're just enemy didn't bother me but I did but after you said it I'm like that was kind of a long second act a lot of story yeah I was like my god but that being said this is still to me a fuck a flawless movie and I wish I could bitch and complain about it and it's one of left we've talked about a thousand times it's hard to take nostalgia out because going into this maybe I think Travis had even said it the other day was something about like spoiler alert it's a tin for me and it was like it's just hard to watch this guy's it's like it's hard to watch this film and take that away so when you're sitting there watching it you're like yeah because and to be honest I think I liked it even more now because I try to think of like man Robin Williams like kind of kind of killed it knows like because you've also seen how many shitty movies yeah I think so it's like going back to me like oh my god they did so well yeah the whole thing I was like damn they kind of killed this and then even thinking like Dustin Hoffman and then shmi I don't know why I fucking love that dude that it was like and Hoskins it was Roger Abbott that's right yes and it was like I knew I was like god he's great in this I loved it she was one of my favorites but I don't know the kids you know they always say how difficulty worked with kids but like I thought all those kid actors were pretty good or if you always kind of got on my nerves it was like just cuz I hated him beginning he thought he was better than pan but after watching him I was like man he really sucks at acting he is just not a good actor moto poor poor bastard that's up but uh but yeah spoiler it is a 10 to me but I look at it at different things now like like you're saying like I can see how this could be a directing hell you know you think of that poor bastard I was like I mean that'd build that whole entire set the whole you know that whole ship it was like when you look at that standpoint you're like damn this must have been a freaking production Oh huge yeah yeah and so I think I just have more appreciation for films now not even really because like you zone out with a film like this you're just like oh I've seen it 20 million times I'm probably going to watch it again because even my girlfriend was like I was watching oh you're watching hook what the hell and I was like sorry I'll watch it again it ain't that hard I'm saying yeah I'll watch it again yeah I'll watch it right now yeah exactly so I again I don't even know what to say about it but it's a 10 movie I love the acting I think the kids are great there's some great one-liners Robin Williams effing kills it Tinkerbell pissed me off a lot in this film I just I think I knew Julia Roberts was not liked very well and I was like she was kind of a bitch she's kind of wrong for the part too yeah it was like and I think the role of her just didn't fit for me but nevertheless loved it as a kid I think I love it more now it's just another film that I think just one of those rare films that will hold the test of time and actually it might be getting better if you can appreciate it on a different level yeah yeah and I just had a random thought of like who would be perfect in that part from that time period would it be Lori Petty from like League of their own slash yeah point break oh yeah she had the short hair yeah yeah she made a good ticker bill I didn't think wow that would have been good so look at a Julia Roberts and then that voice yeah actually I like a little yeah yeah damn I mean it's like looking it's like Julia Roberts it's like you're a glamorous movie star and you look like a glamorous but they dressed up as Tinkerbell yeah it's like it just doesn't work yeah I'm so no sorry I kind of ranted there but it was like but still 10 movie he loved it and it's it's like gets better it's it's a fine wine and like literally is getting better with age yeah absolutely I loved it because it hit like every note of after watching obviously they didn't have Tiger Lily or any of the Native Americans in this film and now you know 2023 you're like okay that was probably a good move for it because that you know it's true it's what and it's why does it why is why is beyond its years yeah perhaps you even had like the the mermaid show up they didn't talk about him they were just like okay we got to have this happen cool but they set it up perfectly and and especially during when Wendy's getting the the award and they're cutting back and forth to the kids and like the storm happening and I love the fucking hook on the window oh yeah and they they foreshadow it greatly like obviously the John Williams score kicking up there and like the wind blowing up and toodles freaking out and you know the kids get snatched up but then they're coming in Robin Williams is coming in drunk and sees the door the broken glass and it's like oh shit opens it up and you see the scrapes yeah now we've got the the music going and he's following the skate scrapes up and you're like oh shit that's a hook yeah and then you get up and it gets kind of scary because you see lies up there she's like the children were screaming and you're like I can let me off this fucking Willy Wonka ride and I'm not fine up for this and they they get up there oh and during that whole time too right before that they show the hooks ship in a bottle where toodles like turns around and you see it and it kind of they do the the the sounds of the ocean and like seagulls and stuff as they're showing it I'm like oh that's so fucking cool nice like little moments that I watched as a kid and I was like oh all right but now I'm like oh man that's so fucking well done just showing it like with the sound design hovering over the ship and then going on that was that was a really cool sequence to see in this but yeah I fucking loved they did all of the things even from the plays like you have to clap to the whole like I don't believe in fairies you have to bring him back to life for the clapping or whatever they mentioned you know like the crocodile and mermaids all that stuff they mentioned trying to like that what hook wanted to go it's like us me was like oh you'll feel better if you wake up we'll go kill some Indians tomorrow's like I'm tired of killing lost boys on Indians so they at least mentioned yeah that they are there but I even loved the like the the topography of Neverland where you can see the compass point in the sea just everything is fucking cool it's like he you go to Never Neverland or no it's not it's like you go to Wizard of Oz and suddenly there's color everywhere yeah it's so fucking great and you know he goes through his hero's journey but he also they they go to the places that they were even in J.M. Barrie's original book they mentioned J.M. Barrie too which I never seen or after seeing Johnny Depp and Finding Neverland and learning about like the original and like the writing of it when I saw it this time I was like oh J.M.
A highlight from John Dyslin
"Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original, something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Metaxas. Wow. It's Monday. Happy Monday. Do you know where you are? You're in New York City. No. I got to tell you something. I've been saying the same thing, but I've been so busy that it gets to a point where it's unhealthy. So, folks, feel free. I covet your intercession. If you don't understand that phrase, good. I covet your intercession because it's been tough. Good stuff, but last week I was in Omaha, Nebraska. This weekend I was in Colorado Springs. I want to talk about that. Just to let you know, in hour one today, in a couple of minutes, we're talking to Gavin Wax. He's the head of the New York Young Republicans Club. We're going to be talking about Israel, current events, Biden, Trump, everything current events, and he's terrific, so in a couple of minutes. In hour two, we're talking to the world's tallest man that we've ever interviewed. He is seven feet tall, and when he came into the studio, I got physically frightened. Suddenly I felt like a mouse, and I ran. You grabbed his harp and you ran out of the castle. And I clambered down the beanstalk, and then I realized, no, that was all in my head. But he's seven feet tall. I want to be clear, John Disneyland has a lot of things to say. We don't talk about his height, but I want to tell you, Nehemiah Strong, he wrote a book called Nehemiah Strong. I won't say anything except it is fantastic, fantastic, and we've got to have him back. He's an amazing man, but he is the tallest person I've ever interviewed, and we decided that he's the tallest person I'm ever going to interview. We're putting a cap on it, so anybody who is taller than seven feet, if you say, we emailed the program, we sent you our book, I'm sorry, those are the rules, John Disneyland is the tallest person I'm ever going to interview. We had to cap it. At some point, it gets out of hand. It's like a limbo pole. If you go any higher, you're out. Something like that, or the opposite. But honestly, we just had to put a cap on it. You've got to have limits. You've got to make rules, folks. Seven feet, that's it. I'm sorry. I don't make the rules, except in this case, I did. That's what we have coming up today. Really, really strong conversations. Tomorrow, in hour one, I have a next -level conversation with the great Naomi Wolf. You'll see. That's hour one tomorrow. She's a big deal. She's a gift to this country at this time, I've got to tell you. Later on in the week, we have Doug Giles. He's the hippy -dippy weatherman that kills lions. Always fun. Yes. We've got a lot of guests coming up. This week, we're filming some Socrates in the Studio events. I can't say too much about that, but in December, we're launching a streaming platform, Socrates Plus. So exciting. We're going to be posting some of these things. Heather McDonald, Anthony Bradley, whom I know from the King's College. Interesting that we're finally doing some Socrates in the Studio events. But to get back to where I've been, I was in Omaha. I spoke at Hank Kunneman's church last week. I emailed Pastor Hank and his wife, Brenda. I said, I'm going to be in Omaha for this event with the Speravita Institute. By the way, the Speravita Institute, amazing. Amazing. I keep meeting these heroes. It was incredible. But so I spoke at Pastor Hank's and said, oh, we have a Wednesday night service. Would you preach? So I did. Then we went to Colorado Springs for Jim Dobson, who is a living legend and a great American hero. Doesn't get greater. He puts on a thing at the Broadmoor Hotel every year called The Gathering. The Gathering sounds like a creepy seventies movie, The Gathering, right? Yeah, it does. Yeah. The Gathering. The Gathering. Yeah. Were there robes and hoods and things? Yeah. I thought of a title for a bad horror film called The Blooding. I knew Chris would laugh. The Blooding. The Gathering. Anyway. So you brought your amulets to The Gathering? Yes. Jim Dobson puts us on every year. And I want to say Charlie Kirk spoke, and he's got nothing new. It's a lot of fluff, basically. A lot of fluff. No, he's such a wonderful. It's such a joy to hear Charlie. Ben Carson spoke. Jack Hibbs spoke. I put this on Twitter and on Instagram. But to be around folks like that is so encouraging because they're saying a lot of what I'm saying. And I realized they it was wonderful. I spoke on Saturday night, followed by Gary Bauer. Gary Bauer. We got to get him on the program. Gave a speech. I just thought this was so amazing. It was such an amazing speech because normally I go places. I'm the speaker.

Moody's Investors Service has cut China's credit outlook. We get the story from Bloomberg's Anne Cates. Moody's lowered its outlook for Chinese sovereign bonds to negative, underscoring deepening global concerns about the level debt of in the world's second largest economy. Moody's cites China's use of fiscal stimulus to support local governments and its spiraling property downturn, adding that they pose risks to the economy. China says it is disappointed by Moody's decision and that its economy will be highly resilient and has large potential. In other news, US job openings fell in October to the lowest level since March of 2021. It adds to evidence that the labor market is cooling and it reinforces market expectations that the Fed will be able to cut interest rates next year. Allianz's chief economic advisor Mohamed El -Erian says not so fast that markets are wrong to expect imminent cuts. I do believe that the Fed is done raising rates, but I don't think that will validate what's currently priced in by the markets in terms of rate cuts next year. El -Erian says the Fed needs to be careful with its forward guidance for markets. Saudi Arabia slashed has its crude oil prices for Asia by the most since February. Bloomberg's Yvonne Mann has more from Hong Kong. Saudi Aramco lowered its flagship Arab light price for January by 50 cents, is now priced at $3 .50 a barrel more than the benchmark. The cut was less than the market estimated, but it's the first reduction since June. The cut marks a concession that nearby markets have weakened as supply surged from non -OPEC producers. In particular, Saudi Arabia is facing heated competition of cheaper sweet crudes. In addition to cutting prices to Asia, Saudi Arabia is also trimming some supplies to the US.

A highlight from GEN C: Exercising the Innovation Muscle With Julia Klim, VP Strategic Partnerships, BD at Equinox
"Gen C is the generation of the new Internet. In Gen C, the C stands for crypto, but it also stands for creators, the connected consumer and collectibles, both digital and physical with on -chain provenance. It stands for culture and characters, the ones we play in games and the companion ones that AI is building alongside us. It stands for community and digital citizenship and the new set of transparent and trustless tools being built to govern them. These are the people who were raised on a different philosophy on how they look at money, how they look at identity, how they look at privacy and how they look at the hybrid, digital and physical spaces being built all around us. And finally, how they reimagine their relationships with the communities and companies they interact with. We focus on how brands large and small are building for these audiences. Welcome to Gen C. All right, everybody, welcome back to Gen C. Exciting episode today. Our guest will be Julia Klim. Julia is VP Strategic Partnerships at Equinox. Equinox, for those who may not live in a city that has an Equinox, is a very high -end wellness experience. Jim, they now are into hotels, one of the pioneers of wellness as a lifestyle. They also own SoulCycle, which I'm sure most of you heard of. So I think there's a lot to learn from Julia. I'm really excited to talk with her. But first, Avery, there's some stories that have been popping up. I don't know if you heard this yesterday, but Tom Hanks is very mad at AI. And remember, this is the guy who used a lot of very advanced computer techniques in the Polar Express to make himself look like any person he wanted to. But he is upset that a dental service has created an AI Tom Hanks and has put it into his commercials. And he's saying, that is not me, and I did not endorse that. And I kind of feel like this is a little bit of the dark side of what AI is going to bring, where anyone can put anyone anywhere. And as someone like yourself, where you guys also make traditional advertising and commercials, how do you feel about this in terms of just the IP realities of celebrity culture? We never want Forrest Gump to be upset. And he is creating a ruckus, but rightly so. At the same time, he's expanding and enforcing rights as it relates to talent, as it relates to creators. And certainly, we would never use a name image like this without the appropriate permissions in place and the proper rights, all approved by our business affairs team. Deepfakes happen all the time. I don't know if you've seen character AI. That stuff happens a lot. I think when you're using it for direct commercial gain, that's when you really cross into a place of enforceable legal action. Brands use AI -assisted versions of talent all the time. If you think about Shah Rukh Khan Cadbury, which is a Mondelez brand, used to a few years ago during the pandemic to do this happy birthday kind of thing and allow SMBs to leverage Shah Rukh Khan in their message as part of a broader campaign they were doing. So that kind of thing is fine because he knows about it. He's getting paid and everybody knows that it's AI. I think in the Tom Hanks example, that's an example of the talent not being on board, not having endorses and not getting paid. And rightfully so, not wanting someone else, some dental business to benefit from a fake endorsement from Tom Hanks. So I think we're going to see a lot of this, but I do think the laws are pretty clear cut around protecting the name, image and likeness of talent and of celebrities in these kind of cases. So I think we'll only need like one or two big misuse cases for people to shut that down. And from a big brand perspective, like I can just tell you, we would never, ever, ever, they would never approve that these types of large companies are petrified of being sued or doing anything that's so risky unless they had been approved and vetted by the talent themselves. I'm not worried as much about the big brands as much as I am the just brand spam that could happen on something like Instagram or Twitter. And the fact that, you know, there are a lot of these kind of shell shadow businesses where they spin up 25 storefronts that sort of are all focused on the same thing, ghost kitchens, Amazon FBA, totally. And they just run all of it through these marketplaces for really low CPMs. And it's one thing for Tom Hanks to see himself in a dental ad, you know, in the U .S. is another thing for him to see it in Malaysia. And so I just wonder how much globally also this is going to be a problem where that rights management of IP, by the time you send the cease and desist or try to find the person who's a two person, you know, shop who is an e -comm play, really just playing on low margin. It's a challenge because knowing whether or not the person is involved may not matter, especially kind of the further you get away from Western cultures.

Surviving Covid and Chaos: Looking Back at the Early Days of K9 Culture
"August 1st, 2020, so right in the middle of the pandemic and that was the good old days of... Not the good old days, the days of quarantine in a lot of places, everyone's wearing a mask. Should you wear a mask? Should you wear three masks? Should you wear 72 masks? Oh my God. Six feet away from people. How many boosters should you have? I mean, it was just chaotic. Nobody knew. No, we didn't have shots then. No, there was no shots. We're not going to talk about that. But you had to be six feet away from everyone, which is really nice because the leash is six feet long, so that was awesome. So yeah, we opened up. It was just Laura and I for that first month in our facility here. We did not... God, do you remember? We didn't even turn the lights on in the back three quarters of the building because why? Why do we even need to go back there? It's just the two of us. And so that was the first year, and it was August 1st. We didn't really do boarding trains for a while. We tried to discourage them because we didn't have kennels at that point because when you order kennels, they're usually a six -week lead time, but because of COVID, it was a four to six -month lead time. I mean, everything's lead time was just ridiculous because everyone nationwide, worldwide was not working, working from home, whatever. And just general trial and error, like we did cinder block kennels first. Yeah. So we had to build some cinder block kennels. So we had some. And then once we did have a couple of boarding dogs, once those first initial dozen kennels were built, then we had the ability to board. I guess we always do. So someone's probably listening, well, why didn't you just put the dogs in the crates? We did. We But it's not what we like to do. I don't like dogs sleeping in crates all the time. I don't know. I just, because if they're not training, they're in a crate, and then if they're sleeping in a crate, I don't know. I just. But we did have crates. Yeah. Julie's office was the first kennel room. Yeah. Your office was the kennel room, air quote. Oh, God. I don't even think we had a break room. No. The first couple months. And then the break room we slept in. Yeah. Well, first we slept in Wyatt's office. That room was. A noise. Wasn't too dark. No, it didn't. No, we slept. The first time we slept in the grooming room, but there's ticking because right by the grooming room is. The fire suppression, fire alarm system constantly beeps during the day. You don't notice it that much. But when it's. At two o 'clock in the morning, when there's not a sound anywhere, like what the hell is that noise? So yeah, we made it one night in the kennel room, which is, or excuse me, the grooming room. It wasn't the grooming room at that time. It was just a room. Then we went over to Wyatt's. And then we moved to Wyatt's. Oh, I remember why we only made it one night in Wyatt's office. The way it's laid out, it was too small. You know, you try to get out of the air mattress to the left or to the right, and you're up against the desk or a wall, and I thought, no, this is crazy. we So then moved to the break room, but it wasn't the break room. It wasn't the break room. And Wyatt's office wasn't Wyatt's office either. It was just a room. When the people left this building, they left all the furniture. It was full of crap. Yeah, because they went out of business and refrigerators and they went out of business before COVID. They haven't paid their rent in like a year. Yeah. So there was like a whole bunch of crap here. It was an indoor soccer center facility before. Yeah. We sold all of it. Yeah. Facebook. That was one of my jobs. Facebook marketplace. Just getting rid of all the soccer stuff that was left. We had couches here. We had chairs. Cheers. Scoreboards, goals. Cooking. Soccer balls. Cooking because they had this little bar here. Oh, yeah. Yeah. They had that. Freezers. It was interesting. Who was our third person we hired? So the next one that came on was Wyatt. Wyatt! Wyatt came out at the end of August. Still paint the walls. And then a week later. Oh, I forgot about that. We finished. Yeah. We were still paper walls. Wyatt's little baby. Wasn't the baby's two? Make it look like a dog. Alex's like two. Maybe one. He was here riding around doing stuff while we were painting everything. My mom even came and helped paint it. She was 70 years old. It was pretty cool. Yeah. It was cool. I felt bad. We worked her to death. Yeah. We took netting down. It was a lot of work. The building's 47 ,000 square feet, so there's a lot of netting that has to come down. Scoreboards, goalies. Windows to clean. Oh my God. All glass walls. So all of our training fields, they're surrounded by eight feet tall human shatterproof glass. Well there's soccer prints, hand prints, human prints. Head print prints. I mean any print you can think of on both sides of those windows. I know for a fact I spent a whole entire eight hour day cleaning windows and it wasn't even half that. Not even. And then when we got that one with one side we went, oh shit. Now we got to go on the inside and do it. We're not dead. We're only halfway done. And you can't see the smudges until unless you're on the other side of the glass, so you could clean it but not miss parts. It took a long time. And then light bulbs, we replaced over, I can't really count, I know it was over $5 ,000 in the first two months of light bulbs. Oh my God. That's how many light bulbs they had lit. And in the middle of doing this, we're training dogs because Charles sold a few dogs the first week we opened. Right. The first week we opened and they knew they were our first. In fact, those first two dogs, Laney, she was just here boarding last week and that was three years ago and we were just all joking with the owner. I remember when he came in, it was just the two of you. And then Hank. And then Hank after her. Hank. They're both two of the most dog aggressive dogs we've trained. So right off the bat, to this day, they're still two of the most dog aggressive dogs we've had. And they both ended up liking dogs.

"We get it. You're busy. You don't have time to waste on the mainstream media. That's why Salem News Channel is here. We have hosts worth watching, actually discussing the topics that matter. Andrew Wilkow, the next D 'Souza, Brandon Tatum, and more. Open debate and free speech you won't find anywhere else. We're not like the other guys. We're Salem News Channel. Watch any time on any screen for free 24 -7 at snc .tv and on local now channel 525. at preggertopia .com I'm not going to say that George Strait automatically means that I'm here, but it's a good signal. Mark Davis in for Dennis. A certain Texas twang coming from George, if not from me, but a certain Texas flavor when I am here and it is always a joy to be here. Mark Davis from 660 AM, the answer where I am the happy morning host. And boy, was I happy to be here this morning. Happy being a relative term. It was demanding for everybody because I'm here in central time talking to the West Coast crew out there in Pragerland where everybody was working really late between radio and the Salem News Channel. Just fantastic coverage last night, post debate, all kinds of opinions flying thick and fast. So I'm just really enormously pleased to be here in one of my frequent fill -ins. It's always a joy to be here for Dennis. And you can follow me on Twitter or X or Guacamole or whatever they're calling that thing these days, at Mark Davis, M -A -R -K Davis. And the best way to get ahold of us, of course, is the phone lines that are used in the show every day. 1 -8 -Praeger -776, 1 -8 -Praeger -776. Again, I'm Mark Davis here in the big bustling DFW. And wherever you are, I have some things I need to know from you. You ready? And what I'm gonna do is put some of it in question form. Most of my obvious offering is to get your thoughts and ask the blanket question. What did you think of the two big things that you could see last night? One of them was the debate on a stage in Milwaukee. And the other one was seen by perhaps 10 times more people. I mean, are we at 200 million? At some point, everyone in America, if not around the world, will have seen Trump on Tucker. And we'll talk a little bit about whether it was smart for Trump to do Tucker instead of the debate. It certainly wasn't dumb, it certainly didn't hurt him. Because after all, as we've learned by now, nothing hurts him, at least not yet. And by the way, every candidate on the stage last night, every candidate on the stage last night, dreams of having a bump, having a boost like Trump will get today from another arraignment. This time under the aggressive thumb of Fannie Willis in Fulton County in Atlanta, Georgia. He will turn himself in at some point and you will then almost be able to palpably sense the fundraising boost, the poll boost. Here is the truth of the Trump poll numbers. There's something we know, but there's something numerical we don't know. Again, one eight Prager 776, one eight Prager 776. Talk about Trump's decision not to be on that debate stage. And then we'll talk about everybody that was on that debate stage. Cuz it was a fascinating night for Vivek, a so -so night for DeSantis. A really good night for Tim Scott, a surprisingly, momentarily at least interesting night for Mike Pence. Nikki Haley did great, but did she get enough Mike time? Chris Christie, that New Jersey bully boy thing, that just gets really old, really fast. And Doug Burgum and Asa Hutchinson were there as well, which is about the old, I got nothing bad to say about these guys. I've got nothing bad to say about these guys. Hutchinson was an okay governor of Arkansas, really needs to be awakened on some of the gender clarity necessities. Doug Burgum seems like a wonderful guy, and what a tough nut, keyword nut. Who plays basketball the night before a debate? Who does something that has even a remote injury risk? My colleague Mike Gallagher and I were talking, and he said, if I'm on the debate stage the following day, I'm putting myself in lockdown. I'm gonna be in bed, in some type of pneumatic bubble. Nothing will get to me, but so that I don't rip open my Achilles tendon. Which he did, so he had to crutch himself onto the stage. And I don't wanna be cynical enough to say that this strikes me as debate theater and that it was faked. I don't believe that, I don't wanna be that guy, I don't wanna be that cynical, but I will be this judgmental. How dumb is it to do something the night before a debate that can hurt you? So of course, I know driving on the highway can hurt you and da, da, da, da. So I have all kinds of hot takes on how I think everybody did. I'm gonna frame it in terms of what I expected versus how they did. And then we'll talk about what I expected from Trump on Tucker. I expected it to be stratospherically good, and it was. So we have specific Trump on Tucker observations, and we have specific debate participation observations. And it all takes place against this glorious, fascinating backdrop of late August, 2024. Here we are, we are still September, October, November. So we're still four and a half months before anybody votes for anything. Change is still possible, but how plausible is it? How many times have you heard people say, yeah, in this particular year, by this point, Newt Gingrich was in the lead? Yeah, in this particular year, Rudy Giuliani was in the lead. Well, guess what was not going on when Newt, obviously, neither gentleman ever became president or ever will, it seems, for multiple reasons. There was no Trump, nobody had a 50 point lead. It was just wide open, it was five or six or eight or 10 or 14 or 17 people all running now. Trump is the alpha dog, the king of the hill. There is nothing that has dented his support yet. I will tell you the one thing, I wouldn't even say might, I'd say the only thing that can, the only thing that can, and I'll do that here in a second. In fact, probably got to get to that first. 18 Prager 776, 18 Prager 776. And again, my name, Mark Davis, follow me on Twitter, X, whatever you want to call it. I can't say X, it's Twitter to me, I don't know, I'm an old fart, what can I say? At Mark Davis, and I'll take a look at those during the break. But the best way to get ahold of us, of course, with your thoughts, 776. 18 Prager Okay, I do have a fresh column in the Fort Worth Star Telegram, I'm proud to write for the Star Telegram and the McClatchy newspaper chain and Newsweek and Town Hall, but the thing I did an immediate, I pretty well do mean immediate, turnaround reaction column for was the Star Telegram. So if you go to star -telegram .com and look at opinions, find me, Mark Davis, there is my column that talks about how Vivek and Pence and Tim Scott helped themselves. I mean, the only people who did, but they did. But the enduring question, the enduring question is, can anybody catch Trump? Is that even possible? So if we start with the premise that they say anything is possible, not anything, okay? Asa Hutchinson, Doug Burgum, or Will Hurd winning the nomination is as close to not possible as the English language permits, okay? But let's just say that in these turbulent times, where almost everything seems volatile, it was volatility that kind of lofted Trump in 2016. There were a lot of frustrations, there he was, he seemed anti -establishment, he caught the wind of that in the sales of so many Americans. The timing was just, it was perfect for Trump. Now, eight years, next month, wow, he and Melania came down the golden escalator at Trump Tower. In a way, it seems like yesterday, in a way, it seems like 100 years ago. But anyway, everybody knows him now. And the love for him and hatred of him are both baked in so solid, so two things are true at the same time. With Trump as the nominee, you're going to get two things, guaranteed two things. The love for him and the devotion to him and the desire to flip a huge middle finger to the establishment that now pursues and persecutes him, that will be on fire with energy. The other thing that's gonna be on fire with energy, every Democrat, Biden could be actually dead and on the ticket, and Democrats will crawl on broken glass and walk through fire to deliver another loss to Trump. So that will be in furious force. So which of those forces, which of those phenomena is greater? I don't know, and neither do you. Are there risks to making Trump your nominee? There sure are. But are there risks that a whole lot of people seem totally willing to take? Yes, indeedy. So what is the one thing that might erode Trump support? And I'm not saying it will, but it's the only thing that can. I'll tell you next, and take your calls next, 1 -8 Prager 776. Mark Davison for Dennis. The Dennis Prager Show. Gold dealers are a dime a dozen. They're everywhere. What sets these companies apart, and whom can you really trust? This is Dennis Prager for AmFed Coin and Bullion, my choice for buying precious metals. When you buy precious metals, it's imperative that you buy from a trustworthy and transparent dealer that protects your best interests. So many companies use gimmicks to take advantage of inexperienced gold and silver buyers. Be cautious of brokers offering free gold and silver, or brokers that want to sell you overpriced collectible coins, claiming they appreciate more than gold and silver. What about hidden commissions and huge markups? Nick Grovitch and his team at AmFed always have your back. I trust this man, that's why I mentioned him by name. Nick's been in this industry over 42 years, and he's proud of providing transparency and fair pricing to build trusted relationships. If you're interested in buying or selling, call Nick Grovitch and his team at AmFed Coin and Bullion, 800 -221 -7694, americanfederal .com, americanfederal .com. So, whether you are watching, or listening, or both, we appreciate it. Mark Davison for Dennis here on Debate Night. I was gonna say morning after, depending on your time zone, the day after, what do we think? I'm gonna take some calls here and sort of intermingle my specific thoughts about how each candidate did. And of course, you know what the short part is, how Trump did with Tucker? Simply superb. It was just vintage Trump for 47 minutes and it was awesome. It was just a reminder of how great he is and why everybody wants him back, or nearly everybody wants him back. I will tell you, not to be a curmudgeon about this, but I still think he should have been on the debate stage. I totally understand his logic. Why should I? They're 50 points behind me. I don't need to show up for this. I totally get it. He's right about that. It did not hurt him to not be there, but it was a missed opportunity. There are millions of people for whom the last 10 times they heard Trump talk, it was all about Jack Smith, and Fannie Willis, and Alvin Bragg, and this persecution, and that lawsuit, and this vendetta, and that witch hunt, all of which is true. But it can be fatiguing to some folks who are not a junkie for this. And this would have been an opportunity for Trump with a bunch of rivals, and a bunch of pretenders to be sure, and a bunch of people at 0 .5%, and I know, I know, I know, I know, I know. But it would have been him talking about borders. It would have been him talking about crime. It would have been him talking about climate, which by the way, he did with Tucker, but he could have done that too. Not to get greedy, but why not do the debate and then sit down with Tucker tonight? Wouldn't that have worked? So yeah, but it was a statement. I understand it was a statement. It was a positioning statement that says, I don't even need to be on that stage as they all run for who's going to be the last person left when there are two candidates left standing. That is, by the way, what last night's debate was about. It's what the entire campaign is about for everybody not named Trump. At some point in the spring, there'll be two candidates left. One of them will be named Donald Trump, and the other one will not. And everybody wants to be that other person. And forever it looked obvious that it was going to be DeSantis. It doesn't look that way so much right now. Now it could really be the vague. Will that sustain? Is this kind of a flash in the summer pan? I don't know. Your thoughts are welcome. 18 Prager 776. As I get ready to go to the phones, here's the thing. Everybody, I get asked this all the time. Is there anything that could change the calculus? Anything where Trump just doesn't have that 50 point lead anymore? Because while we're talking math, here's what's undeniably true. Trump can win the nomination, can breeze to the nomination without poaching one single supporter from anybody on that stage last night. Obviously, he could do it tomorrow. DeSantis, just to pick somebody or the vague, let's go with DeSantis for the moment. He needs to poach half of the Trump poll numbers. He's got to go get half of those people. Half of the people saying we want Trump, half of the 50 some percent, if not more, who say we want Trump, who say that now in August, have to stop saying that by the time people are really voting in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina, and Nevada, etc, etc. So what is the one way that happens? And this is a half court shot, maybe a full court shot. And that is that some of the poll emotions right now, some of it, most of it is we want this guy to be president. We loved him then, we love him now, we want this guy to be president. You know, the usual earth logic that people use in expressing support for a candidate. But some of it, and it'll have to be a lot of it. And I don't know that it is. But certain x percentage of it has to be folks who may or may not require Trump to be their next president. But they are furious at what's being done to him. It is a show of support. I mean, why do you think the poll numbers will go up after he is arraigned today in Atlanta? Is it because a bunch of people will just look at issues around America and decide, oh, he is my guy? Some may, but most of the poll bursts and the fundraising bursts that happen after each continuing litany of indictments is people saying, oh, hell no. It's what I call the Jason Whitlock effect. Jason Whitlock is the wonderful broadcaster, blogger, who was on the Tucker one, I think might have been after the first indictment or the second one, I lose track. Jason Whitlock was on with Tucker when Tucker was on Fox and said, I don't even know what I think about Trump. I'm halfway with him, halfway not. I like some of what he does, some of it not. I don't know. But tonight I'm hardcore MAGA. Tucker, tonight I am hardcore MAGA, Jason Whitlock said. And it was as a statement of revulsion at what was being done to him. Now, if that's a bunch of Trump support, cuz here it is in one nutshell. By the time we get to, we go through Christmas, we go through the holidays, everybody digests their holiday meals. And then we all get rolling in January of 2024. And millions of Republicans go, whoa, okay, now it's what's always been serious. But now it's time, time with a capital T. It's not about whether we don't like Jack Smith or whether we think 2020 was rigged or whether we're just not about anything else. Other than it's about one thing, one thing, who beats Biden? Who gives us the best chance of beating Biden? And if the similar numbers of people who think so today think that that's Trump, and by the way, it may well be, then nothing will change. All these campaigns, all the DeSantis's, all the Viv Hanks, all the everybody's, I don't wanna say it'll be for naught, but it will not bear fruit. It will not bear fruit. If, however, and it's funny because right now we got the sort of the fresh angst, the renewed emotion and determination of what will happen after Trump is dragged before yet another tribunal for yet another non -crime. And we can talk about this some today if you want. There's really only one thing out of every single one of these stupid persecution prosecutions, all these indictments, all these things. Really, they only got him on one thing. There's one thing that he just really should have done differently. And that's the handling of those stupid documents. Give back the stupid documents. If you do that, then that's not even a problem. But all this election related stuff is insane. He thinks he got screwed. And guess what? So do I. Guess what? So do most of you. We don't get to believe that. And if we're him, we don't get to act on that and make phone calls and secure meeting space and tweet to somebody to watch a TV show, all of which has been criminalized by these lunatic prosecutors. But in January of 2024, it's not gonna be about that anymore. No matter how we feel about that. No matter how we feel and no matter how resentful we are of that and how much we wanna stick with him. And I mean, in that regard, if millions of people say, God bless you, sir, God bless you, we love your presidency. We want those policies back, but the damage seems to have been done.
Monitor Show 14:00 08-04-2023 14:00
"...in this poll saying that they don't want to continue to support Ukraine. I think that people like Chris Christie need to go there and give them a little tough love. Pretty remarkable stuff. Great talk. Rick and Jeannie, the best in the business. Our signature panel and Bloomberg Politics contributors, Jeannie Schanzano and Rick Davis, meet you both a little later on Balance of Power on Bloomberg TV. We've got a lot more to go here. We're just getting started on the fastest show in politics. Our two of sound off starts right now. Broadcasting 24 hours a day at Bloomberg .com and the Bloomberg Business Act, this is Bloomberg Radio. Now, from our nation's capital, this is Bloomberg Sound On. An indictment was unsealed, charging Donald J. Trump with conspiring to defraud the United States. This is the first former president to be charged with trying to steal an election. Bloomberg Sound On. Politics, policy and perspective from DC's top names. I think we've seen Pete Trump. I think it's downhill from here. I think it's premature to totally rule out Donald Trump. The question is, what's more important to him, staying out of prison or getting elected as president of the United States? Bloomberg Sound On with Joe Matthew and Kaylee Lyons on Bloomberg Radio. Wages are rising faster than expected. And yeah, that could be a bad thing. Welcome to hour two of Sound On. This jobs day with monthly data showing payrolls up less than expected and wages staying hot. We talk this hour with the acting secretary of labor, Julie Hsu, with analysis from Angela Hanks, the economist at Demos. Most Republican presidential candidates are loath to criticize Donald Trump, but they have some big differences with the former president when it comes to economic policy. We'll explore that later with Bloomberg's Ryan Teague Beckwith.
A highlight from Michael Thompson
"Welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show. It's a nutritious smoothie of creamy, fresh yogurt, vanilla, protein powder, and a mushy banana for your mind. Drink it all down. It's nummy. I want vanilla. I want vanilla. Here comes Eric Mataxas. Hey there, folks. Welcome to the program. It is my privilege and joy to have as my guest right now for the whole hour my friend, Pastor Mike Thompson. Pastor Mike Thompson, welcome back. Oh, I'm so glad to be here, Eric. Wow. It's a great day to talk about wonderful things in the United States and about the power of the kingdom of God here. Yes. A little excitement and encouragement is not a bad thing, especially when it's not phony. And it's not phony. You're not blowing smoke. I tell people this whenever they ask about you. attracted What initially me to you and kept me listening to you on YouTube is that you are very sober -minded. When you say something positive, I know you're not putting it on. I know that it's real. It's true. I want to tell people, if they're not familiar with you, that you've just written a book, which I recommend very highly. It's called Third Heaven Authority. I want to talk about that in a few minutes. But I think so much of you and so much of the book, Third Heaven Authority, that, of course, I wrote the foreword to the book because I really want people to be familiar with you. And they can be familiar with you by reading the book because there are tons of stories in there of who you are and things you've experienced and about the concept of Third Heaven Authority. So I want to be talking about that. But you, I believe I've said it before probably a few times, that you were one of those very, very few people, in some ways the main one, who gave me hope during the darkest days after the stolen election of 2020 and all of the things that were happening. And voice your from your pulpit on your YouTube channel gave me hope because it didn't feel like you were in some kind of an echo chamber telling people what they wanted to hear or what they hoped was true. But you were really saying what you'd heard from God. Now, I'm sure there are people listening who say, heard from God? What are these people, nuts? Turns out we're not nuts. you're Turns out mistaking us with people who are nuts. This is serious. But we do take it so seriously that we understand that it would challenge some people. They say, well, that's, you know, that's a bridge too far. I'm not sure I can go there. Well, stick around or you can read Mike's book, Third Heaven Authority, because these are important things that we know that we can hear from God and we know when we hear from God and when we don't hear from God and then we don't make it up and say we did hear from God. So but you've been encouraging, Mike, very encouraging to me because you have said over and over that God is not done with this country. And he has spoken to you in various ways explicitly about that. So I want to talk about that a little bit. What why do you say that, you know, God is not done with America and that it is his will that we pray America back to God? Oh, absolutely. You know, I firmly believe that in the natural realm, so to speak, I mean, you got to understand, of course, we're human beings. We live in the natural realm, but we also live in the spiritual realm because, you know, we have a human spirit on the inside that it receives Jesus as our Lord and Savior when we accept him. Holy Spirit lives on the inside of us. That's the eternal part that when we go through physical death that goes on in to heaven to be with the Lord. So there's a natural realm and there's a spiritual realm. My point being, Eric, is that it's easy sometimes because of our training to see what the devil is doing in the natural realm to see what's going wrong. And if we just focus in on that, then of course, we're going to be discouraged. But we're also spiritual beings. And so we have the capacity to be able to see the form of the Lord, to see what God is doing, to hear it by revelation from the scripture. And, you know, the Lord, I'm one of those guys, you mentioned it, you know, very prophetic, been having those encounters all of my life, 45 years of ministry. And I just I see things, I hear things, I know things in the Spirit, and they're all encouraging when you see what the Lord is doing in the circumstances that may be ominous, that may be dark. We focus on what the Lord is doing. And that kind of faith is what brings us to the point where even I wrote the book on Third Heaven Authority, a prayer book to teach people how to see in the spiritual realm, to see the form of the Lord. And then with the spiritual authority to be able to engage in that and help God. A lot of people say, well, help God? God doesn't need any help. He does, because it is God moving through his body, his believers, those who have accepted him. Let's be clear. The Lord designed it that way. So, you know, on some level, God doesn't need help, but he chose us and created us in his image to be a part of what he wants to do. So if we don't do his will, he has given us the freedom because we're made in his image to not do his will or to do his will. He's given us that freedom. And so he exhorts us to do his will to participate with him in what he is doing. So when people act, as you just said, like, I don't need to do anything. It's like, well, that's not God's design. God's design is that he created you to do something, but he can't force you to do something. So it's an amazing privilege that we have as those made in his image and born again and filled with his Holy Spirit, that we actually get to participate in his will and in being a part of what he wants to do in history. And I think that's a big it's important that you brought that up, because a lot of people have a misunderstanding on that. You get people that are really fatalistic and they think, oh, it's all over. And they act like there's nothing they can do, even potentially, to make things move in the right direction, like it's been decided. And and you I know that that's that's not right until the Lord decides he hasn't decided. And they're acting. They're putting themselves in the role of God and saying, oh, it's done. It's got we're under judgment. It's over. And God hasn't said that. No, not at all. I believe that God's hand is still on America. You know, Jesus gathered his disciples together and he said, go into all the world and preach the gospel. He didn't say go home, make bologna sandwiches and wait for me to do it all. He said, go. And in Matthew 16, you know, where he said that I've given unto the ecclesia of the church, the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whatever they bind on earth is bound or shall have been bound in heaven. And whatever they loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven. So he uses us. He flows through us and hence your book on the letter to the American church. You know, it's activate. Believers need to be activated. They are the enforcers in the earth realm of the kingdom of heaven. When I wrote the book, Letter to the American Church, I'm not prophetic, obviously, in the way that you're prophetic or or or Chris Reed or Dutch Eats or Hank Kunneman or, you know, but I do know that the Lord called me to write that and spoke through me in that in a different way than he speaks to you and to others who are gifted as prophets in the office of prophets who move in the prophetic as we as we say. But I don't believe the Lord would have called me to write Letter to the American Church unless it was his will that people would read it and be activated by it. Brought to repentance because of their inaction and say, you know what? I got it wrong. I believe God is exhorting me to to get involved, to speak out, to be part of God's solution and stop being apathetic and really selfish and doing nothing because so many lives depend on it. We're going to go to a break, but we've got the whole hour with Pastor Mike Thompson. I want to encourage you folks, please, to get to know Mike Thompson, to follow him on YouTube. He and his wife, CK, have a channel and to get his book Third Heaven Authority. As I said, I wrote the forward to it because I believe that God speaks through Pastor Mike Thompson. And I want you I want you to be encouraged, as I have been encouraged by his ministry. So the book is Third Heaven Authority, and we'll be right back every day.

Tom Hanks address Harvard graduates
"Actor Tom Hanks gave the commencement speech to graduates at Harvard University Thursday. I'm Archie's are a letter with the latest. Tom Hanks thanked Harvard for giving him an honorary doctorate and a school volleyball, even though he never did a lick of work there. His advice to graduates referenced the Declaration of Independence, superhero comics, an actor Marlon Brando. He says Brando, who used to call him Tommy handkerchief and himself, Marlon brand flakes, said something that stuck with him. He told me that when he was a young man and registered for the draft, he filled out the form for his name and age, but when it came to his race, he wrote human. The sound is courtesy of Harvard University, Hanks urged the graduates to fight not just injustice, but indifference.

Hank Johnson Labels Republicans As 'Props' in a MAGA Broadway Show
"Here he was again yesterday at this House judiciary field hearing in New York City trying to deal with the problem of runaway crime in major American cities like New York. Hank Johnson is back. The Republican witnesses who have used their time to criticize district attorney Brad has served as props and a maga Broadway production. The real purpose and coming to New York City. Can we have order? The real purpose in coming to New York City. Gentlemen goes to spend. Stop the clock. For the audience, I've said several times now that we committee has to be in order if anyone continues, then we're going to have to ask for some people out. Please don't talk. Please don't talk down to us witnesses, please. You know, somebody you can hear at the end there, don't talk down to these witnesses. Do you understand what Hank Johnson, this scurrilous imbecile who represents voters in Georgia actually said? He's talking to crime victims and calling them props in a maga Broadway production.
Remember When Rep. Hank Johnson Thought Islands Float?
"I'm so embarrassed for the people of Georgia who keep electing this guy. He's the guy who's so dumb. He thought that the island of Guam was going to tip over because of too many troops on one end of the island and they were going to cause it to capsize. He thinks islands float. United States congressman. Eric, should we bring it out of archives because you really can't, it never gets old. They were holding a hearing once on Capitol Hill, and there was an admiral testifying about the presence of military troops on the island of Guam. Listen to congressman Hank Johnson. My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize. We don't anticipate that. The best part is the admiral's pregnant pause and then diplomatically saying we don't anticipate that happening, congressman Hank Johnson, because islands don't float. It's okay. The military isn't going to capsize the island. You big dummy you. I mean, really, the real answer would be, are you serious right now? Are you a United States congressman? Are you pretending to be a United States congressman?
Rep. Hank Johnson Calls Republicans 'Jack-Booted Thugs'
"Representative Hank Johnson is at the House judiciary hearing today in Manhattan And let's listen to some of this Cut one go Maga Republicans continue to resist even the most basic reforms like universal background checks If Republicans really wanted to stop we have universal background checks except for the rarest of circumstances That have literally nothing to do with the murder rate in our country I challenge you to go out today go to a gun shop or a gun dealer legitimate gun dealer or an NRA convention legitimate event and purchase a gun and not get a background check Other certain kinds of guns you can buy without a background check You know if you're a collector of Revolutionary War Civil War type weapons and that sort of thing But I'm talking about modern weaponry That goes back a hundred years You won't be able to get any automatic weapons But you will have a background check Go ahead They would be in D.C. right now Working with Democrats to pass common sense gun legislation Instead like Jack booted thugs they've descended on New York City using violent crime as their pretext So Republicans are now Jack booted thugs Jack booted thugs In other words Republicans are like Nazis
What Do Dems Do Every Time They're Struggling With Their Narrative?
"They went there They went there What do Let's start with a question Let's start with a question because you can avoid an assertion It's very difficult to avoid a question as a very astute political analyst once told me If you're ever going to run for office don't ever forget that Start and embed in your speeches a lot of questions to the audience It keeps them awake if your speech is on adult topic No I'm serious because a question automatically accused the brain Like a response is required And assertion or just a statement or something people just ignore it What do the Democrats always do What do they do when they're in trouble on a narrative a storyline with a news piece whatever it may be What do they do You know the answer Jim's racing his hand What is it Jim Pop quiz Yes yes Yes Look what I have created You got to pull that for me I used it up now Poor Tom Hanks and castaway created fire The Democrats look at what Dave grant every single time they say you're a They can't help it You're a racist If you're new Tom art mmm um So he used to laugh at them all the time But he'd go on with that for 15 seconds That's their thing Now the thing about the Euro racist attack is 30 40 years ago in this business If you were called the racist it would folks It was a really big deal What do you know Dan You were 48 Well I studied the business I love this business The editorial talking head commentary business And you look at what's happened to people in the past when they made missteps see the real or fabricated If you recall the racist it was the end of it You were done The thing now is the Democrats have used it so often and so ridiculous and such a ridiculous fashion that it's typically gaffed off
Baseball Is Back!
"Things about growing up in the south or way where you might grow up into something universally unites it. And especially for young people playing baseball young boys, softball baseball. For me, it was baseball, getting that first glove, getting the ball, going out and throwing, you know, molding the glove, the way you wanted it to fit around your hand, you know, just getting put it under the pill, putting the oil, the glove oil under on the glove, getting it bent in, then putting it under your bed, you don't get it where it would be real lose. You wanted it is loose. You could be, those are all great memories of baseball and today, as we talk about Friday sinus this week, yesterday was the opening day of Major League Baseball. It is a lot of changes. We're going to talk about some of the changes in the rules. We're going to talk about the teams. And just go over a lot of what's going on. So James, by way, doctor Texas on my way of New Jersey and a mets fan at that, welcome back James, it's time to dig into baseball today. I'm not sure I like the way you said a mets fan at that. That's if they're lesser than. No, no. No, that's funny. So I'm gonna guess you grew up a braves fan. You better believe it. So you were so Hank Aaron is like your guy. Now, hey Gary, you know, he's amazing. I mean, but I grew up in the town. Here's the funny part about baseball in Atlanta, okay? As opposed to as you well know, and everybody on this podcast is harder than they see it. Sometimes in the background when I'm taping. I am a falcons fan because in Atlanta, basically falcons and the braves came to Atlanta at the same time. The file comes, however, are just the falcons. And so I'm also very much of a raiders fan and enjoy watching football. When it comes to baseball, baseball, I've always been a braves fan.
Joe Scarborough Blames Republicans for Nashville Shooting
"I didn't have the ex Republican congressman blaming Republicans for the Nashville shooting on my bingo card. I just didn't. I understand the nature of activists and there are active activists on the right. There are activists on the left, activists aren't typically average Americans. So it's hard to even recognize this type of activism. I want you to hear what Joe Scarborough former Republican congressman said with his wife, you know, grunting affirmation next to her. She's making sound effects and she's, you know, making noises of disgust as he rails against Republicans because we're to blame for what that person in Nashville did to those beautiful people. Listen to this. We now live in a society in 2023 because of Republicans because of the NRA because of the gun manufacturers who make millions and millions of billions of dollars. We now live in a society where the cops are afraid of the convicts. We're former presidents. Former presidents, they make martyrs out of convicts who stormed the United States Capitol. These Republicans are the enemy of the rule of law. Everywhere we look. They're so worried about drag what book our drag show, whatever they do, all of this stupidity. They're so afraid that somebody's going to read a book about Hank Aaron. They're so afraid they're going to read a book on Roberto Clemente, but they're perfectly fine with AR-15s. All over. It's the freaking world. They're sick.
The Bailout of SBV
"Dave McCormick, as I read superpower in peril. I was very fascinated by the Bridgewater backstory on ESG, DEI, your tenure there, ray dalio, China. But I noted that you were making the round with Hank Paulson when 2008 collapse occurred. And I sat in the oval with W and 5 other talk show hosts on the last Wednesday of his presidency. He was explained to us the Sunday afternoons of 2008, were always spent doing something crazy that he swore he'd never do in his life, but they had to do it because 2008, we were at the brink of the collapse of the financial system. Are we back on that cliff? This week or did we were not close to that clip? What Dave McCormick thing? You know, I've learned to not be too confident. Is the honest answer about these sorts of things? I think the response particularly on the liquidity that's available across the bank system should go a long way in terms of giving some confidence. I think that we'll probably see some other banks that go through the washer here. But so I think if I had to guess, I think we probably averted any near term disaster. The bigger problem is where I started, which is you've got this low interest rate environment for a long, long time, and people are making a bunch of investment decisions based on that. And now you have a rapid rise in inflation, which is leading to a rapid rise in interest rates, which is creating a mismatch. And that mismatch in our banking system that mismatch across our economy, that's not gone away.

"I'm pretty sure like I try that again and it wasn't the flavors of the combinations, but I've done so much stuff that is good that I'm still looking forward to trying new things. We just Victorian, I were looking at the cookbook and saw that Ethiopian tibs recipe, which is involves cooking venison and spiced butter. And oh my gosh. I don't know how I haven't tried that yet, so it's funny. One of the things that I think it's come through pretty clear in the podcast that I'm a huge fan and that I can't give a high enough recommendation to get the hands on the book, but I even had a dentist working on my fill in a cavity and the hygienist was talking about her boyfriend just turning the whole deer. He was going to shoot in hamburger, and I was just absolutely dying because I was like, you're doing a lot. As soon as they got their hands out of my mouth and they're like, you need to buy this book. Don't do this. Don't do this horrible thing. You're making a mistake. Then spend the money, get this book, you'll thank me later. So yeah, that was a real treat. And on the fishing side, I would just encourage people to try some different things. I mean, there's a lot more you can do with fish than just batter and fry. So if you want to expand your horizons and tickle your taste buds, you should check out that hook line and supper. And we should say it's a good read too. Like he is not everyone who knows a lot of things and is an expert, or is an excellent chef, is also a good writer, but Hank Shaw kind of ticks all the boxes. He's actually a good read. He's fun to read too. So you can't lose. Well, again, thank you guys for listening to this podcast. Seth, thank you for filling in for David while he's out shooting at targets and selling both spiders, but it's been a true pleasure of mine to co host this with you. It's been a lot of fun. Yeah, absolutely. Thank you for having me. Yeah, absolutely. And so I hope all of you have enjoyed this and I really, truly hope you go out and check out Hank Shaw. You can Google him, you can go to his website. There's lots of different ways to find him. So until next time, thanks again for listening to the rag cast outdoors podcast. We hope that you've enjoyed the show.

"Right in the middle of the one on fish intelligence, and that one, I'm very interested. I love that episode. I love that episode, because not to get too far away, but the sky is Australian. And he's the world's leading authority on fish intelligence. And I was just blown away by this episode and I don't know. It's fun to be able to talk to people like that. Yeah, and the thing that blew me away said that fish can recognize people's faces. I was like, wow, that's pretty incredible right there. Right? Yeah, there are a lot smarter than we give them credit. That bass that you caught last face was I could never liked you. Yeah, no, it's great. And I just want to say how grateful I am that you came on the show. I mean, I know you've got lots of other things going on and the fact that you took some time to spend with us just means a whole lot to me and I noticed Seth as well. So thank you so much. Absolutely. No, it's been fun. Let me know. Let me know in the errors and I will share it on that series of tubes. We call the Internet. That sounds excellent. Yeah. All right guys, I'm going to go get back to work. And I'll talk to you soon. Yep, have a great night. You too. All right, see ya. Bye. All right. Well, we just wrapped up with Hank Shaw, award winning author. That was quite the conversation. I feel like I got a ton out of that, Seth. And I mean, that was a lot of fun. Yeah, it's fun to actually get to hear someone that you're familiar with. Either for the podcast and get to ask your question. So that was a really a huge treat for me personally. And there's just some things that it's so easy to forget to bleed your fish. It's such a simple thing, but like to be reminded of like, oh, that's what I can do if I really am serious about harvesting and treating that resource with some respect. And having something that I can really, truly enjoy when I get home. I mean, that's one of the things that my wife and I it's like Victoria and I love the fact that we get to eat like kings because of things like that. Just taking better care of stuff in the field. And you've really put a lot of the recipes to use. And you talked about a few of them on the podcast, but why don't you talk about a few of the other ones that you've done that you really like. So I think the number one and we definitely did talk about this one in the podcast because as he said, people misinterpret how many chipotles you should put in the barbacoa, but the barbacoa recipe is one that's really special to me because, as I mentioned, like that memory of how tedious it was to try and turn shanks into hamburger, the way my family did it, we didn't just ride in things forever. We would actually remove all of that connective tissue, and it was super tedious. It's most of what I remember about butchering parties when I was a kid hated it. And the front shoulder and the neck too. And some of that meat sad to say, we would get a lot of it, but a lot of that stuff ended up as magpie food because of kind of the yield we would get once you actually, once you get rid of the silvers, that connective tissue, the silver skin, you've lost so much that you don't end up with very much, but boy, if you slow cook it, and that

"So for all of you out there who like fried fish, if you don't know, as you're frying fish, turn your oven to warm, or 200°. I like 200°. I like it actually hot. But a baking sheet in the oven, put a cooling rack on the baking sheet. As you fry fish, put them on the rack and then keep frying. And then when you're done, a, all your fish is hot. B, it stays crispy and doesn't get mushy and gross. And that simple little thing could change someone's life. Yeah. It's like the swiffer. Yeah. Or if you're like me, you're consuming it as it's coming out of the fryer, right? It's like one for you, one for me. I'm guilty as charts. I like doing that. All the walleye cheeks don't. They don't make it. Well, that's fair. I mean, you're cooking. And I'm catching. I'm like, hey, I caught it. I cleaned it. I get the cheeks, but. Oh, yeah. I mean, halibut cheeks out here in the west. That's the same way. No one gets them but me. Well, we've already kind of gotten adjacent to some of the some of the last things that I know I wanted to cover with you. And one of those is just if you're introducing wild wild food to someone who's new to it. What have you found to be the best ways to go about doing that? Because it sure seems like people have expectations for meat in particular that are really based on what they get at the grocery store in terms of the kind of beef pork and chicken. They get at the grocery store. And wild meat isn't that. But I think we would all agree, like if you never experienced some of those wild things, like you're really missing out, it's not a neutral thing you're missing out on. But how would you go about introducing and I'm assuming you've done that tons and tons into these people to new culinary horizons? Well, I think there's a couple of ways to go about this. The first thing that we have to differentiate is you're not me. So I get a lot of leeway with people like I've served people like crickets and bugs and stuff and they're like, okay, fine. Because you know, I'm going to make it taste delicious. And they're willing to do that trust fall with me. Until you have an audience that is willing to do a trust fall with you, the

"But if you're I mean, I've seen people fish and Wyoming when it's 85, 95° out. Yeah, if it was me, I would want an ice cold beer anyway. So you bleed a fish, put it on the street. Here's what you do. You get one of those. So, okay, I'm going to preface this by saying yet he doesn't pay me. But Yeti makes his awesome cooler backpack. And I'm sure some other companies make cooler backpacks. But I have one from Yeti. And so you catch your trout, lead your child, put on the stringer arcade's blood out, well, you've got your, you should have your Yeti backpack full of ice and beer. So put the fish in and take a beer out and then just keep going back and forth until there's only fish. There you go. I mean, that's all you gotta do, right? You just rotate them. We used to do that with crabs and Long Island. So like we'd be crabbing off the dock and we have a case of beer in the cooler. And I can assure you, by midday, when there's more crabs than beer in the cooler, getting those last 12 beers was extremely difficult. There's three or four dozen angry blue crabs trying to get you. Yeah, I'll bet. That would be a little sporty. Sticking your hand in there, but yeah, I think Seth talked about it. When we were younger, we had catch fish, throw them on the stringer and not think twice about it until we got them home to clean them and do whatever. And I know about, I don't know, maybe it was 7 or 8 years ago. I read it. Article and in fish man by Doug stange and he was talking about bleeding fish. And just the difference in the quality of your fish and then of course icing your fish too. And I caught some suckers a few years ago and I actually tested that theory on, I mean, these were some pretty good sized white suckers. And some of them were blood, some of them weren't. And then I fully off the fillets just to look at the meat and see the difference, and there's clearly a difference. Between the ones and the blood and the ones that aren't. And people are like, no, no, there's not. I took a picture. I'm like, yeah, there is. Look at this. It's totally different looking meat. Like one was really pink in color, one was more light in color. And you're cutting boards all bloody. Like I did this. This is the exact same test with sheep's head in the Gulf of Mexico. And they're kind of a porgy.

I feel like maybe could've lead with the fact that it's an actual holiday the united states. We have a question from laura who writes dear. John and hank. I just had to buy a ten dollar pot of lettuce because my dog peed on it at the market. It's a head of lettuce in a pot with dirt in it. what am i supposed to do with it. It looks fully grown to me. Am i supposed to plant it. Am i supposed to take you leaves off of it at a time. Do i just cut the whole thing off to the fresh salad ever. I want to ask the seller. Because pretty madame neon account and my dog peeing on his lettuce dubious advice would be greatly appreciated since celery. Laura missed that. I thought it was a typo at first while This so for as long as a little weird to sell a full grown lettuce while it's in a pot still at that point you just cut it off and sell it but not just that it's weird to have it on the ground at a farmers market when everybody brings their dogs to the farmers. Like what do you think's gonna happen. I don't know. I think i think you see. I think that that's that's a little bit the dogs fault. I'm not gonna blame anybody like also firms markets and missoula. You can bring a dog. And i think probably for this. Very reason Okay it's wild to me to think that you could bring a dog into a farmer's market just like it's wild to lots of people and other places that you can bring a child into a bar whereas in missoula there are no bars without children. Yeah no where else are they going to be there. I go to a bar. That has a playpen pen area to put your child in l. Tell you. I don't mind that in a non kovic moment but i minded in a covert. Now i don't i have not been to that bar in a at least eighteen. I hope they've closed down the playpen just for the moment but we'll see. Yeah my guess is yes. I think i've done this. That you can take leaf off one time and maybe you can prolong the life of the lettuce and with the lettuce gonna wanna do. Is something called bolting where is to send up. Its flowers to produce the seeds for the next generation of lettuce. The moment that that happens something. Something occurs inside of the lettuce that makes the leaves taste bat and And so that's the thing to watch out for if that looks like it's starting to happen you're gonna wanna cut that lettuce and make yourself a real real good solid immediately e e. Yeah you don't want it to get even close to bolting really. Yeah so i. I'm a big fan of just eating it the moment. It looks like you could eat it. Yeah that's when it's fresh freshest. That's kind of my guide. That's kind of my guide with the garden when the lettuce looks like I could. I could probably lettuce. It's a little softer a little more pleasant little sweeter. Even maybe so yeah. It's in my opinion. It's almost never too early to start. Cutting lettuce. let us happy to to be harvested while it is still in pot doesn't mind getting its leaves yanked off. I think it's pretty used to that. But if you wanna let it bolt and have a bunch of flowers. You'll be surprised by what happens. Which is that. The lettuce has flowers. And then we'll have seeds and then you can take those seeds and plant them next year. If you want to grow your own lettuce that's fun. We had our asparagus bolt year. Because we didn't know that there was asparagus planted decades. How near our garden. And we're walking around one day and i was like ballots gonna like an asparagus spear and it was so next year. We're going to have a spare guy. Asparagus has some kind of weird growing season. Doesn't it or is that the thing is that is the thing that grows up. Is that the flower it use like. Catch it before it does it branching. I don't. I don't really know. But i know i know. It takes a while to grow asparagus. Like it takes a few years. And that's why. I've never planted it before but then it turns out it was here all along. Hey nice by the way i have. We've had a great year in the garden as you would expect from being fairly homebound and yep not to brag or anything but this weekend i harvested and processed two thousand strawberries. Y two thousand. How did you count them all. Well hank. I don't know if you know this about me but i'm a counter. I always have been i love. I love accounting another good. Count the the irony is that i'm terrible accountant but i do love to count so basically freeze them in trays and each trae. Right fits one hundred seventy five strawberry. So it's easy to figure out. How many strawberries. You've harvested are amazing. Though the cherry the cherry harvest here in montana's looking really good right now but We'll see what the squirrels have to say about that But if i unfortunately. I think that you will miss cherries. While you're here. They will not be ready yet. That's okay. I've i feel like i've had my fill of fruit for sometime. I got love cherries. though. I love strawberries strawberries. Are there my favorite thing that we grow in the garden. 'cause it's like i understand how you grow potatoes and lettuce and peppers and everything because it tastes all that stuff tastes at least a little bit like dirt you know Like lettuce tastes enough like that. I believe it came from dirt. Strawberries tastes nothing like dirt. It's just it's i can't even get my head around the that. Strawberries grow at a dirt. They there are lots of fruits that don't taste like dirt and they all grow out of the dirt. I know but it's like if you told me that like ice cream sandwiches grow on a vine i would be like. Wow that is surprising. Yeah i- i maintain. I've said it probably four times in this podcast that if like candy manufacturers came up with grapes everybody would freak out. Yeah a so true. It'd be like. I cannot believe that you made that. It exists loads in your mouth. It's so sweet. Yeah i would like to try to grow grapes someday but it seems like it's a lot of work. We have neighbors who have grapevine on their fence. It's like concord. Grapes like big big hunkin seeds in them. Yeah Have to spit the seeds out but they are so good. Yeah they're like right on. The road see is kind of take them right. Because it's like well. I mean like hey like they're they're on your side but they're also on our side so we're gonna take a fall ac- that if if you're walking by my garden and you're in need of a strawberry. Please god take one last thing. I date is another strawberry right now. Yeah it is. I i mean i also just to state the obvious. It is wild to me that strawberries.

I don't want to change some of his. Just total silliness. We lovingly called him. His lizard stomps 'cause he'll get all four feet involved You'd like to go to bush's in my kinda like stomp at them so that the lizards will run out. The funniest thing is he misses the lizard. Half the time they run out and he doesn't even know he's still standing there stomping expecting the common. I'm like dude. They're gone like they run around the corner So that's been fun. And then in recent years since we started using a long line more he does these gigantic hops that he just like hops into the bushes like a gazelle like he tucks his legs under and does giant sometimes a double hop edge again. It's just hilarious. And so we do what works than we keep him like man safe and let him have as much freedom as he can to enjoy life. My god that is beautiful. So was there any back story on hank before he came into the rescue. Unfortunately we don't know much. He was at a shelter up north. I don't even know he was owner. Surrender or a stray.

"That's what we'll leave this story for now. This is only part. one hank. Aaron's life was very substantial. There's a lot of content there so this will be a two parter. I'm gonna take you into the story of how he actually wrote babe. Ruth's homerun record with vin scully on the call and craig sager interviewing him at home plate. It's a beautiful story that i'm sure you will enjoy for we go. I do want to leave you with his amazing amazing feats of baseball glory. He never hit. Fifty home runs in any season but yet was still the home run cake. He had a career batting average of three zero five and may twenty five all star games. Now you may be wondering how he did that in twenty three years. Well there were a couple of years there at the end of the fifties early sixties. That major league baseball was trying to help. The major league. Players increased their pension by instituting two midsummer classics per year. So if you may both all star teams you may four all star teams in two years hence the twenty five in twenty three years got gotta check out the rest of these statues though number one in major league. Baseball and total bases runs batted in an extra base hits number two at bats behind pete rose and number three in hits behind rose and ty cobb third games fourth in runs scored. He won the nineteen fifty seven. Nl mvp to time batting champion. Three time gold glover and those record twenty five all star games. Earning them in every season except his first and last he was inducted into the hall of fame in nineteen eighty to ninety seven point eight percent which still blows my mind that he wasn't voted unanimous as he was nine votes short of the first unanimous choice. Second only to ty cobb in nineteen thirty six now since then mariano rivera in two thousand nineteen became the first player to be unanimously voted into the major league baseball hall of fame and while i disagree because i believe there were many more players before him. That deserve that accolade. He was a great ball player as well and great ballplayers. They're hard to come by and it's even more difficult to come by legendary ball players. That have a huge heart in our humble and down to earth. And that's what hank aaron was. And i want to leave you with a quote from former commissioner bud ceiling. May he rest in peace as well. He said if hank aaron that he is a true hall of famer in every way besides being one of the greatest hank was a wonderful endear person in a wonderful and dear friend not long ago he and i were walking the streets of washington dc together and talking about how we've been the best of friends for years correspondent who would have ever thought all those years ago.

You wrote arguing the definitive Henry of biography and anybody with Hank. Um Sorry, aesthetically autobiography. But he talked about how he was very complicated, but certainly extraordinary, gracious. Especially having known some of the stuff he had to go through and put up with, um I can remember reading a book about about him chasing. In fact, it actually took him through the year we got 7 13. It was another early book of About Hank here and just the stuff he was facing. Even that years kind of approach Hank ever approached Babe Ruth's record on but it's just It's so hard to believe that, you know, die for achieving something that he did. Um, it was really vilified by a chunk of the American segment. It just It just sounds so foreign. I guess it shouldn't be. But it did just does to me that he was vilified for for, you know, just simply breaking a record and doing what he was asked to do, and Just from a playing standpoint, I did. The one thing is never one to disable listeners career played into his forties played hurt. Um, it's funny. The all time home run later never had a 50 home runs season, which speaks to his level of consistency at numerous four year old run season. I'm so it wasn't like there were a couple of outline for years on D had to me and I will say this. He's always gonna be the home run champion. I'm so no, I'm not I I recognize Barry Bonds in that regard this side 53 head. I just don't I read something, I guess. From his point of view, Hank's the one. The things he's most proud of is. He never had 100 strikeouts season and also have what 3300 something hits and people don't talk about that they use up there in the in the all time hits list. Yeah, He was a pure hitter. That's that's just That's incredible. I mean it most power hitters, especially today at the day, even on power hidden going on every team in baseball. They got 78. That's trekking out 100 thousands of years and he never did it. He just had natural power and just just took a normal swing at it. It's funny. I mean, he actually hit crossing and I believe up to a point where he was in the minors and might have been right. Even when you still playing Negro League baseball. They got him out of batting switch switch crossing it. And can you imagine somebody doing that Unbelievable. Yes, he did it cross and think about that. Sometimes that would be weird man. I'm just sitting here trying to do it myself. That doesn't even make sense. I couldn't even know what a Wiffle ball bat. I don't think Right? God, I wonder just I guess he never had instruction when he was little of how to hit a and what you gonna do? The guys knocking the ball over the place? So why change it?

I remember my dad was a big Dodger fan. He grew up in Brooklyn. So Even though we lived in Cincinnati and around we moved a little bit came back to Cincinnati. Uh, my dad was still always a Dodger fan. So I can remember watching was that that was, uh If you will. Monday night Baseball games back in the days when you were lucky to have a game of two on a week, and that Dodgers braves game was a special broadcast of Hank had a chance to break break the record and watching that live there. You did. It gave me goose bumps to watch it. I remember I was just a little guy and There's a lot of carnival shit to hit 7 14 years. Cincinnati. I mean, hit it the day after, Remember those that was a dancer. The great Tornado outbreak. So the awful tornado outbreak in the first game. You guys talking about 4 30. Marty confides down and a whole lot more. Um and then, but that after the home run, they decided initially they were gonna shut him down for the next couple of days. 11 trying to break the record at home, and they booed him suck. It got in and said. No, you're going to play him and he ends up the man's ready. Matthews, there's a former teammate is with the with the old Milwaukee Braves sitting on the manager. I'm gonna sit in, eh, So he set him against Tom going. Then they decided to claim in the last game of the series against Clay Kirby and We went over three and got a chance to go back to Atlanta to break the record, So there's some confidence. You don't think he's you know, he hit the home run in the first part of the game first about of 1974 season to tie the record and could have broken in here and they wanted to break it at home and see what happens. That's what it is taking place. And Marty was that was that was Marty's first. Yeah. I mean, I'm sure you've done this free trade about stuff like that, right? E wanna ask Marty when we talk to him? How many minutes? Were you on the air? When you made that call because it could have been many. No, I think I think if I'm not mistaken, either his third or fourth in line, I would think force that's about where he was hitting them. So forth from the lineup of the first inning of opening game that long. I mean, not long ago. Well, welcome to the big leagues, Son you go. There you go. So to a Swiss gear skinny. Let's talk some of the NFL games this weekend. I think obviously, the big one is the bills. Kansas City game. Looks like patch from Holmes is going to play. I mean, there's a shocker. Yeah, exactly. They had any chance of not happening. But what do you see? And what do you like it in that one? We were not like buffalo, and I don't want to be a contrarian and just say because of that we just biggest It seems like if they need to win your shootout. We're gonna win. You shoot out. If they need to stop, you will stop if they need T throw it 30 times in a row like they did the other night. But don't throw it 30 Times in a row and Kansas City while Patrick Holmes is certainly other world wait. This year. It just seemed like they haven't put people completely away. They had a great chance on Sunday up 19 to 3. Thank you Make your toes in the section. At the very least, they should have gotten a field go out of it, said Butter. It's the upright.
