"It's time for the often with ryan dempster podcast presented by sloan. I'm your host ryan dempster. Today i'm joined by the new voice of your chicago cubs jon berg shabby a i. I gotta tell you about sloan's no touch handwashing technology. It state of the art seconded non and couldn't come at a better time truly a league of their own so we want to thank them for providing that technology to people out there so we can wash your hands and stay safe while i've known for a long time that's right for almost twenty five years when i first got to the big leagues one thousand nine hundred eighty was working for the florida marlins and he hasn't stopped since he is really really one of the best. We're lucky to have him on the north side replacing len kasper so without further ado. Let's get down to it and go off the mound with boobs shabby what's up brother. You look look fabulous man and the new york street and good luck refreshed. I am refreshed. I'm excited i'm i'm i'm so fired up about doing this job and just all of it get a chance to move chicago everything. I'm really excited and do the we talked about it. Such a big move. I mean you're uprooting your leaving the east coast where you've been your whole life and moving into chicago. Why why why the chicago cubs what. What drew either. I think is i worked in baseball. My ninety seven. I i really got a sense right away out. Special chicago is a city and how special it is baseball city in especially the north side. So i i think that as someone that loved the sport so much spoke to a and then i think that it's just it's a city that's got great character. Great history obviously but it just it has always spelt familiar to me and then the baseball part of it. I always love going and doing games in places that feel like everybody's As excited as i am that service ago so it's really flattering as well. you know. there's a pretty pretty great broadcast history. You know in that booth. And i'm humbled i get a chance to you know. Follow in the footsteps of guys like len. And you know. Harry carey jack jechorek house and you talk about land. Land is obviously a dear friend. Both you and i he moved on one another way and you get to come in and take over for him any advice that he gave you or said any little tidbits. He gave you two to help ease into that. I don't even have that conversation yet. I am going to have that conversation with him. I mean i think this right like i. I think my antenna is up for. I don't know everything. I probably one hundred games at wrigley field and i've made tons of trips there year in and year out to chicago but even still there just things about being part of the community day in day out that i don't know the best thing i can do is keep my ten up to learn be open and just be willing to understand the things that i might not might not know ahead of time and i'm certainly going to lean on him before the season starts tin. Try and put him back to. When i started in what some of those things might be. I'm curious have you actually ever even asked you this before. Was there ever a moment or a time when you were you. Call one hundred games at wrigley where you were like. I can do this every day at this ballpark. I think the answer is no and it's part of what made this process. So no i always. Viewed it through the prism of i was doing games with the marlins with the braves nationally. I think especially the fact that that job was taken by one of my closest friends. So i think i was probably blocked off for thinking about what it would be like to be him because it was his job and then when it was presented to me was the first time that i really leaned into it. I know it's it. Sounds i mean it's it comes out of my mouth. It almost sounds ridiculous but the truth is when it was presented to me. And then i just kinda sat with it. Felt it and thought about it yet than it washed over me. Wow the be part of this organization this community and it's just unique. It just is. It's it's you know for every kid to grow up in the eighties for example and you even in a market where you had access to baseball. You also had access to cubs baseball and that was me. I grew up in in born in philly. Grew up in new york city two teens and i got cups baseball and that was you know. So there's it and what. I really leaned into it and thought about just day in and day out. It was like yes. Yes so i've had trouble i. It's been i've told people it's corny. But i'm a great sleeper. I mean with all due respect to you. I could fall asleep right in the middle of this interview. You just laid out for a minute. I've already asleep on that good but that's a trouble sleeping lately because just excited to just excited straight up. yeah. I i know that this city is going to embrace you know you. I know you're from the east coast. We have this midwest fealty. You're so kind and gentle everyone and and you know always willing to give your time. So i know you're gonna fit right in going back you know. I think it's pretty for me. It's pretty amazing for people. Don't know this my first year in the big leagues you were working with the marlins and here. We are twenty five years later and we're sitting here talking about your your your new job. The play by play guy was that always a vision for you. You know when you started way back then by the way your good luck charm because you were down there for two world series in florida so i figured that's eventually going to happen here again in chicago. So was that always a vision for you to to come to come back to get to that point where you were calling for a team or call nationally you really you know you worked your tail off to make your way through the ranks and get to where you are today so I feel like i've always navigated. You know my career in a way where just trying to be president in the thing that i'm doing and i'm not trying to map it out too much. I don't i really wanted to do national stuff. And i got that i'm still gonna get that chance of rape cubs marquee. You're gonna let me do suppose season based radio some college basketball. I can't say i was. I met this distinction sincerely actively thinking about. I want to get back to in team when getting back to two cups. The cups aren't just one of thirty. You know they they. The cubs occupy pretty special. Place when you're talking about getting a chance to be around it every day the day games and again how much it matters. So i didn't have the map down in a way that i thought that this would end up being it and now that i'm here it feels like yeah this this is it. This is the thing misses the hopefully job that will have for a long time and the day games. It'll be nice because then you can meet your bedtime. You were talking about you like to sleep so you can get to bed nice and early which will be which will be an extra bonus on that guy now. I'm like i'm all. I got one of those or rains and i had like a couple of stretches where during the pandemic i got one of these oral rings that measures your sleep and i'm like champ. I'm talking like you know. Barry bonds on performance enhancing stuff type level. And i as a sleeper. And i so every night you know. I sleep and they give me a score and there's a crown and awesome sleep earth but i got to a point. We'll call the times during the pandemic was going to sleep so early and then my schedule changed a little bit where you know like seven forty five. My ring is sending the notification that says your bedtime is coming up very soon. And i'm like it is talking about but then it's like the old guy tau so you know we'll go go have my tea or milk and then on now you're gonna have the need all that rests and extra rest because when sutcliffe comes through town you know he's gonna wanna walk around and show you all the places he used to or still goes to. Yeah we're doing the wrong finger. Am i i am for my yet. Merlin olsen arrigo merlin olsen merlin all capable. That's right oh yes will the pro. Yes salat. You one thing is i as i tell like. He's a bully. And i just kinda got to get them on the air a. That's what i do the batum around like a baby seal a little bit because that's not really an element when you're talking clever olympics. He's like others receiving votes. You know he's not. It's not going to be fast. So that's that's where i got. I gotta get him because he's he's big in chicago. Never ever ever be that big chicago And he's a bullying. I saw clip of youtube talking. And you guys were telling actually a story about me. It was a baseball game against the cardinals. You were in the booth and you were telling a story about tim bus. The former strength and conditioning coach who is staying at my house during the off season and he needed he needed to find a hockey stick his hockey stick and just a little background. Because you went to school up that way. You're from the east coast. Hockey stick was actually tonia monty and the story behind it was was that yeah he he had autographed it for me at the all star game in denver in two thousand and one i was doing a q. And a. with tony. So i still had it. I wanted to give it back to them during this interview. So i said hey bussey. Can you find this on national. Tv you talk about this. You prefaced it by the way i'm not. I'm not really sure to tell this story you talked about how he he took a picture with the hockey stick. Did you ever see the picture yourself picture. You never seen a picture. Well we're that's about to change for you right here. So this is this is tim. Bus strength and conditioning coordinator and now quality assurance coach for the los angeles. Angels of anaheim. And that's picture number while we can't show a picture number two but there's him with my tony money hockey stick. He said i found it down. Here you go. It's on the way. So i just appreciated you sharing that story with everybody and i just wanna know your thoughts on that body for a strength and conditioning coach. I mean you know look somewhere. Mike redmond is smiling at the oblique right. I mean it's just that's body. That's that's a body oli out I don't know that people needed to see that. But i you know i love bussey and god bless them that this really re i remember. That's one of those. I remember telling that story in the end. This is you know. Part of the deal is broadcast right. But i'm i'm telling that story debbie and thinking as i'm telling that story there two conversations there's the one that's coming out of my mouth near the one this could end up being bad. I could probably end up getting in trouble for this. This probably isn't you know. And he goes and looks for the hockey stick in my hand. I somebody might end up being unhappy at this turning out to be not that clean. Well we'll we'll just go. So yeah that's what happens. Turns out what was very clean yet. A towel to make sure that he was gonna clean. And i actually thought it was interesting because when i when i was watching this story again and i was going over it we were having dinner in new york and you told me. The rule of a broadcaster is never start. Telling the story with two outs. Unless you're unless you're vin scully. And you actually and you told that story with two outs and as you were finishing the story the strikeout happened. I think wainwright struck by is and i'm like boob. Just had he just had been scully moment right there. The thing i told you is that van can do it. Because the baseball gods will just have the hitter. Foul pitches off until then finishes the story. We actually did the mike. During spring training last spring training with risen bryant and rhys told his heckling jones have pro player stadium as a kid story him getting on first and he told the whole thing with two outs and at the beginning i had said the same thing to him. Dole out stories guys right. You're gonna be part of this no to any rapid out and he made the grab it. I finish and you know and tied it all together. And i was like well done and bryant heckling of to outsource to app story and another guy and you talk about two stories and you mentioned earlier in. He's obviously as big a legend in broadcasting especially in chicago harry carey chance to be in the same booth that he did you. Did you have any interactions with him. Any moments with harry carey along the the end of his life in the beginning. Part of your career. I had one and i think i told you the story before but i just think you you. You may have misplaced it and the people that i now work for. Gosh i really want him to stop telling this story. I just it. Because if you and i want to delight you and your audience i have to tell the story. This is a true story. Nineteen ninety-seven it's my first road game as a broadcaster. It's like thirty five degrees. Alex fernandez is pitching. He deals by the way that day. Not the point is it's freezing. I finished the pre-game show. I have to use of facilities. I finished. I had to come back and do the lions. I run to the press fox. Men's room you know the setup to urinals one stall quickly finish washing my hands. There's nobody in there. In watts harry carey to saul now. I'm drying my hands. And now as on drying my hands from the soul out loud not to me. Just out loud. I hear somebody close out. I can't my and i was like. I gotta go tell everybody this and i just and that was it and i ran and i went back and told daniel bryan enjoy angel and tommy hutton. Everybody that i could possibly tell that is my only interaction. Really inner personally ever with eric. Eric and i swear to dubbed martin people. I'll stop telling that story that's true that is true. You must talking to me. No he's just talking seemed so anyway. Yeah and we talked about this. And i'm going to ask you right now on camera. I have harry carey's glasses not prescription ones because that's like trying to walk after having twelve beers not like harry trying to walk after twelve years but i was trying to walk. That's how thick they are. But i have his nonprescription actual glasses. And i would love it if you would wear them for a game. I i am absolutely in on. That doesn't absolutely now. I also mean we need to just gently. Put it out there. Because i do not want people to assume that i am anywhere in that league or caliber or you're on saying but yes i would be delighted as long as as the people are all right with it. But that'd be amazed maybe maybe like for a seventh inning. Stretch or something where you're getting to have a little bit of fun that'd be that'd be a good way because yeah harry definitely definitely not in his league so this year coming up your your good friend. My good friend and second year manager david ross leading a different ship right. It's going to look different than what he had before. How do you think he handles that. And what. What do you think the expectations are for him going forward. I never had any doubt we worked in the boot together. Three years davidson. Other guy. That i met when i was with the braves. Oh eight was when we met and got connected relief through. I really drew my relationships of brian. Mccann and jeff rampur and got to know him there and then he moved around. But i knew he'd be good at this. I just i never had any doubt that he would be somebody. That would be a truth teller. He would be somebody that would be able to deliver an unpleasant message. Two guys that were formerly his teammates and are his friends. also this he's accountable you go back. There's no point in picking a couple of different things that happened last year with david where he came back and said to players and were said to the media. I was wrong about that. I just think that a manager being accountable and the ability communicate stuff. And what the expectation is. I think he's gonna just getting more and more comfortable and whatever hand he's dealt personnel wise. He will deal with it and he'll he'll com communicate to his players directly. And you'll know where you stand. He's done a tremendous job. I i totally agree whatever tools. He's given whatever those players are he's going to go out there and he's going to get the most out of omen and and really do a great job and and speaking of doing great jobs. The chicago cubs. They're lucky because they got a great one. And you come and aboard to be the new play by play guy. Were really really lucky on the north side to to have you and and here it off the mound to have you stop by for a little while catch up. They'll some great stories and give us a little insight to who you are so thanks so much for stopping by. Thanks dan p. It's great to see. I can't wait to see a person man. I'll tell you what.

Local Hour: A Barren Vending Machine

"The Billy Chad Wallich. For Back Dan is a big one. It was huge. Your sixty downright. Does I don't care about seeds. I. Know I. Know that we have those games here about getting in. Are you? We can get into to the dance. We can get in tonight with a victory phillies loss. A magic number two. Ladies and gentlemen, you just heard the enthusiasm of one Christopher cody because today is the rare day and we do not get this chance very often to say out loud to the country. Chris cody is a winner. He is a winner today his name. That's when his teams go into Jacksonville into the lion's den in Jacksonville, and they win his Marlin. His his marlins after losing three games to the braves by a combined seven thousand run his marlins comeback and are now one game over five hundred. They are one game over five hundred. Billy. How excited were you? When when the MARLINS won yesterday? The five hundred. Hundred Release A. They have right now a ticket to the dance. Do you will now we have a ticket, we ticket for trade that could take to the dance, but we're not sure it's GonNa take to the dance your ticket right now. Where the MARLINS AT What needs to happen. The the magic number is to what does Andy Slater say? It is I mean Right exactly a, they could just win two out of three against the Yankees and need no help or they could win tonight and have the phillies loose tonight could technically I think win one game and have the phillies get swept lose I dunno whatever I just know that we need to TCCB's to got that's what we need. Taking care of business, Lake Niche elements did last night. So much of a winner that he doesn't have time to even say taking care of business he just gives you the acronym. How do we arrive at this place where we have a team? That is one win away from an NBA finals appearance we have a baseball team that's going to make the postseason. The dolphins firmly entrenched to the mix in the AFC is and canes top fifteen deem it's all happening right here take. A global pandemic, an apocalyptic crisis among our lifetime it had to happen. We will take it. That's true. We're we're happy to have it. But when you ask when you has cows, the world's upside down well, this is how the world is upside down in many many places and also south Florida gets to feel like a winner today. Help me out with this guy's because I am so sick of Thursday night football and I'm so sick of Thursday night football that feels like last night's game did. What domination amazing. Amazing just not watch and then it won't bother you know what's funny about how I watched. I'll tell you how we watch because I didn't watch live. What happened was simply tape the game stayed out of all my devices and then I watched the game on fast forward today at five thirty in the morning I watched the game as fast as I possibly could and I was bored by that like once you go to a cell phone, you don't go back to a landline. Once you go red zone, you don't go back to one game and If that one game involves Thursday. Night football and the dolphins and Jags. That is a hard pill to swallow. Why can't you get past this Thursday night thing because all three Thursday nighters have been good Games, they've been high scoring affairs the Dolphins scored thirty one Joe Burrow through sixty times the previous week yet the super bowl champs chiefs play against the the Houston Texans, they've been all exciting matchups. These these haven't been crappy games to watch and you also get twenty minute condensed version on NFL DOT COM or something. So you don't have to watch it in fast forward. I have a Colin Cowherd Stahl analogy for you Dan. When you have sex, you don't always do it the same way. Okay. When I watch football on Sundays I, get my red zone in I get it like non stop. By. On. Thursday night relaxed I slowed down a little bit open ball wine. You're not a candle and then I watched one game. Nice I like to change it up a little. Every time Dan changing up, mix it up. On a Thursday night problem, it's just a one game problem multiple problems. First of all, I, also love and do imagine that you turn on your candles I don't believe you have actual authentic candles in your house. Just wedged think you've got fake. which you just Yes you light something But this is my issue because you say and help me with this because I was legitimately watching the game in fast forward and was bored by what I was watching in fast forward. So you guys tell me when you say it's a high scoring game because the under came in and Ryan Fitzpatrick through six passes in the second half and what I felt like I was watching is the deep pass was such a rarity that the one time there was. A blown coverage in Gardner meant you had a chance to make it a game. He blew it by ten yards overthrowing a guy that would have had an easy touchdown because everyone in that game was so unfamiliar with throwing the ball down the field. Yeah. The jags weren't very good last night I'll certainly give you that and Ryan. Fitzpatrick. Threw the ball six times in the second half because the offense executed as well as we've seen at dolphins offense execute and a half in god-knows-how-long like we should. We should have a conversation about Chan Gailey Hey Hay. We're that come from think Ryan Fitzpatrick completed its first twelve passes eighteen of twenty Mike Yeah you the Seki paths like He. He looked really good that first half and that's the occasional fits magic. You'll do that. Okay. It look I don't want to the feeling in the pooh-poohed dolphins saving their season because if your own to on your must win. You're just said that yesterday was a must win and they went ATC. Exactly. You're you're playing Jacksonville team that is the worst team in the League tanking on purpose and you had to go and save your season. But when you say that's a high scoring game a, what do you do with the following? Okay. 'cause Chris Wittingham put this out. The dolphins have had four games where they scored forty points or more. In the last twenty years, the chiefs had five of those in two, thousand eighteen the Patriots in those twenty years have had forty, six of those they are last in the last twenty years in producing the forty point game the high scoring game that doesn't feel the way that that one felt last night where it was a lot of zinc dunk like Ryan Fitzpatrick was not asked and you're right. It's the best start of his career. He's beaten the Jags for six different teams. Now, six differences Dad, he has beaten the jags. Six got and he's played for eight. But it was Dinkins Dunk. It was dinking dunk efficient it worked and it was good good way to Jacksonville kept the ball mentioned, turn it over. They didn't turn it over they were efficient on offense, but it wasn't very exciting for me to walk. He took his shots in the first half I thought and then you're right there was dinkum dunk after that and they were just sitting on a lead If you're watching in fast forward I imagine now that I had the context applied to it a large chunk of that. Game seems boring because it felt like the game was enhanced by halftime. If I wake up at five thirty in the morning to watch a game any day I'm GonNa think it's a boring game I feel your judgment was clouded by how early it was and how groggy you probably were. Then I get your point like I get Whittingham's point but we don't need it. We know the dolphins have been bad for years that Wittingham Stat just Kinda like proves what we are already knew not today it's got to on the bench. We're Ryan Fitzpatrick leads the league beard and leadership to use things to leash tear. Also I mean we're also cherry picking Wittingham tweets because midway through the second quarter he said this is the greatest dolphins offense I've ever seen I? Don't WanNa hear from Wittingham I mean seriously I don't care what he has to say about anything to be honest with the including soccer i. mean you bad football Dan you get jets broncos next week on Thursday night last night was fine jets broncos next week Pero in twos. But just. So you guys understand like because it is fairly flabbergasting and I'll leave it alone after this. But the fact that the dolphins have had four forty point games in the last twenty years the jets have had twelve and we know the jets are putrid. The jets have had three times as many like I have to explain to you because what ends up happening in this sport is people get fooled in like Menchu's exciting and you're not GonNa win anything that way. You'RE GONNA he's GonNa throw interceptions and he's value and a guy's GonNa come in at quarterback and he's going to look competent but he's not going to be somebody who's GonNa consistently beat everyone I need you to have in context how bad the dolphins have been for twenty years why does it? Why can't we just enjoy yesterday? What are we supposed to watch yesterday Dan the Meryl Streep Show with the wives and who murdered who, and then there's the thing in the testimony in. Black. What were we supposed to be watching yesterday? What are we supposed to be doing to enjoy? NBA Playoff game against the team the heat might. Cares about. Probably. Playoff implications I mean you know we can root for more than one team of Miami that just the Heat Dan Right? Like we can be happy for the dolphins and the MARLINS. Rose. Cores. Omani. This we can root for the marlins and the dolphins also. Why you really became a villain here and the? Great movie last night, devil all the time it's. Netflix heard rarely starring Brian really well done really well done movie stars in that movie. I didn't know there weren't named people in the movie. It was just I. I was surprised at how the name how well it was done Yes. Everyone does have a name. Thank you. Bill but they weren't. They weren't famous people I. Think you guys I think everyone here might enjoy that movie except for. I saw the mask last night, which was introducing Cameron Diaz, the mask bit rapi. Why would I like it just out of curiosity enough explosions. She's not allowed to watch the mask not allowed to watch the mask at all What are you guys? Does it feel like twenty years because I looked it up that's the last Dolphins Playoff Victory Lamar Smith game where he set a playoff record for carries at the at the time against the colts that was December thirtieth I think two thousand was a wildcard game. Yeah. There was a wildcard game was twenty years ago when you go, there were people who were not born that now have children. Right, that haven't experienced a dolphins playoff victory now I know for the browns. It is felt like that because I haven't been to the playoffs since the two thousand and one season not being the playoffs is a different thing. You've had the occasional playoff appearance I was blacked out locally but has it felt like twenty years for you guys Chris Yes it feels like I can't remember the dolphins being good. That's why just let me enjoy being here. That's why I don't want to play like I'm feeling good about this team the first on my life don't play him like last night when they were up twenty points late in that game, I was like Oh my God they might put him in don't do it I've got where I just WanNa keep a away not playing just so I can have this feel good the whole year I don't know I don't know what I'm thinking. Know that if he enters the game and then he's bad. Then it's like, oh, we're back. At least have this right now, take this away from the present under the tree he's wrapped and you see it what if oh, I don't know that could be a good presidents wrapped at somebody I can't wait but it's not Christmas. Yet I, don't want to open it just yet, but I have a feeling in ten. You want to open it because you play the seahawks that's going to be. It's not the Jaguars the seahawks and Ryan Fitzpatrick probably going to be bad in that game. Don't open it against the SEAHAWKS. That's the wrong data open president. Now, I think I might be able to trap billion a corner here I hope I can billy did you actually watch the dolphins game? Yeah. Had It on? Had It on the IPAD and I had the Marlins on the big TV lots of rain they were going to get that game regardless. All. Right. Ready for segment to FCC we like tried to. Talk about about whatever you guys WanNa Talk Fsu but FSU stinks they don't have a head coach I? mean. We have a good Miami hurricanes even when we we're not talking about. There's a lot of exciting things. The here are game away from an NFL spoons. I are the canes good though I? Feel like the kids are just in like idea and a very barren a vending machine right now, and they're like the best thing that we can click but they're not necessarily a great thing to eat oh, that is a great question right there. What is in the mid point of a baron vending machine like what is right at the middle I I want to know what's right in the middle ways orange crackers they're always there with a peanut butter. Yeah I think those are pretty good. They're always the one. Day. Yeah Atlanta's there's. We turn to our vending machine expert because no one had part of his balanced diet being entire vending machine quite like Roy Ballet Roy. What is the thing that is always left over in the vending machine? Those old barbecued ships from Tom's? What about isn't there like some sad brand chocolate chip cookie that no one wants like it's not a Hoya one that you chip your tooth on. A brand name. How about? Pretzels. Just. Rolled Gold's now. We're like, yeah. nope. If there's a such a basic thing I feel like they go out of stock quickly now lifesavers life insurance are always there. Yeah. Wait a minute. That is a really baron vending machine. If you've got to lifesavers, not just those the mint ones like you're. Wait a minute. Are we going to the last thing in vending machine because I was just asking the question of sort of like what's right in the middle you're hungry you arrive vending machine the vending machine is disappointing in general it is barren but what is the high end of what you simply will turn around and walk right out of the room because the best thing in the vending machine is blank because you guys went low with all the stuff you guys went the last thing in the machine. But what's the best of those final things because I'd get the peanut butter crackers if the butter giving you that Hungary at the? Vending machine and the peanut butter crackers are in. There were all getting the peanut butter crackers are we not? It depends on the vending machine at the old waxy studios. I was in touch and those peanut butter crackers that that she was in there since the Bush administration, right but a new vending machine I feel like that might be one of the first things you get. Those things are delicious if they're fresh. Middle, the road type stuff at a vending machine. Maybe some like classic original lays right like the low end of the lays and Gandhi things. Those are the best. Doesn't he stay saving Gundy as a remarkably plain eater for fatman like he doesn't like he doesn't like much of anything that is in plain. Roy The best things in vending machine according to you are is it cool ranch Doritos? Like what is the top? Let's do this as well. If you had to do metal stand a vending machine items, what is it that you're going with? Because honest to God you guys peanut butter crackers might be in a lot of people's top three.

Total nightmare before the show like he was pin bowling all over the place with rage on his face was also sliding all over the place because there was condensation on the floor isn't great for a high. Tech. Studios get used to it because this entire building is going to be underwater in about ten years. So Roy. Did you just make the thing that was last on the vending machine? Did you call it? We're talking about laze about lays the first one that I said it was done allegra-d Blake. Bootleg barbecue chips all right. So Lazy. Number two Roy. civil silver medallist is the NACHO cheese read. Gold medalist is. Gold medal is this. So. What? Do you have a favorite item at. I do have a definitive list here of the top ten most popular things. Purchased from a vending machine I mean I do have that how `bout? Yours. Though. I'm asking more. Oh, snickers bar while we had got now as far as like a meal I mean it is i. feel like I feel like Roy left off like the cream of the crop is the honey bun that's the number one. No because the honey buns since the Bush administration. I think a lot of people might argue on behalf of the honey bun being one of the last things. In my high school that was the first thing on all the time. And that's in high school. Now, if you arrive at a vending machine and that's all that's left, that's a sad vending machine. Pop tarts agree to disagree. Let's let's put these questions on the poll is the last item left in a baron of vending machine being a honey honey buns sad. and. is the peanut butter orange cracker in your top three vending machine items. Keep in mind right next Sudan honey buns cinnamon roll. Can we do the top ten here that do God's stealing from the Internet? Do we want to source this here? Let's do top ten. These are the top ten vending machine items of all time history. Yeah. Yes. According to a vending machines dot com. Yes. All right very good very popular website vending machines dot com number ten to got pretzels. Number nine checks mix. Number. A Jesus. That's at yeah. What's what year is this from This is two, thousand and eleven. Ola Bars. Status Vending Machine? Allama. girdle number six planters trail mix. Before vending machines actually got creative with what they were making this like a vending machine from the nineteen fifty number five reese's peanut butter buttercup. About Billy what? Are you laughing about how bad this list is what are you laughing about of and because I've found the same list and it's hard to find the date on it's a stugatz rolling up and say it's from thousand eleven. Believable lie. Data's on their buried in its August seven twenty twenty you typed in vending machines dot com. Yeah. Billy it's is good for the audience to know this everything Stu got says, is a lie. Moving. There are no facts. It's everything that dribbles from his mouth is untrue but it was so convincing to the way he's go from twenty or. Pause, pause like he was. Yeah No. Then yes and you've got to sell the line. It was two thousand. Eleven. Exactly, a number four sun chips. Chips we forgot about the son. Of the subjects? How did we do that number three pop tarts? I would say the saddling that's one. The last one I'm with you pop tarts in a baron vending machine. I, am with you Tony Shaking his head vigorously know what? Pop tarts are always the first one to go breakfast. Somebody sees it. Let me grab those department. Strawberry was never variety in the vending machine. You know the issue with the vending machines is that it really depends on the location right leg. If you're lugging a high school like a pop tart, a honey bun like those things go fast right where if you're in an office setting, you'll get other things like get like a cup noodles or something like that and lunchtime thing like whoa off. The worst thing in an office vending machine I think is popcorn right? Not because it's a bad snack but because then everybody comes once pc your snack and then there's sticking a dirty hands in your popcorn. Idly. Popcorn out of the work vending machines unless you're gonNA secretly eat it maybe in the bathroom dining I've actually. I am telling you that the. Who is depressive? Okay. The person who's got like some real issues with darkness in their life and that person is hungry and that person shows up hungry at a vending machine that is barren and all that's left is a cup of noodles that person is not leaving that room without committing Harry Carey suicide like that person is going to be done with life at that point. That's the saddest thing that could. Possibly, be in a vending machine cup of noodles it Harry Carey commits suicide. What happened in that happened it also depends on what part of the country that you're in because you're not gonNA find plantain chips in Boston. Yes I put it on the poll game at Lebatardshow pop tarts top of the vending machine food chain or bottom of the vending machine food. But what happened the Harry carry number two who got? Cliff bars. And finally, a little bit of a change of their these guys chair fart noises. Number one to gods the number one vending machine item according to a list from two thousand eleven and also two thousand and twenty vending machines dot com snickers bar. Did. You Steal Snickers. Early. It's neckers, Bart's your choice and my God. It is too early in the morning for your stealing in lies. But you dolphin game earlier this morning. Has Been a nightmare. About things like suicide Eric Carey. Just Google there's a there's an actual word that's Harry Carey I thought you were talking about the. I. Thought you guys were joking. I know. Now Asian, word Harry Harry. You're doing a bit. Broadcast wait a minute all. All of you thought that. Hairy Yeah, it's to Keating. It is pronounced it well, it's a fine keep. This looks like how to Keady. I. Thought you guys were absolutely no. Bid No, I, thought I thought you were like mistaken how Harry Carey? That's who I thought. You were talking about. Definition of Harry Carey I. Believe I pronounced that correctly Weller I've spelled H. E. R. A. I R. I. Like Asian or go to dictionary dot com or the key Asian. Let's see. Let's see. Let's do this. Let's have the payoff to segment B whatever it is that pronunciation dot com says is the correct way to pronounce in English Harry Carey I'd also like the definition for the audience I can't believe I carry Sarah Carey. Harakiri. It's harakiri album. Harakiri. Harakiri. HARAKIRI USE IT Harry. Harry. You. Think I'm. Not Harry Curie I mean Harry Carey. I'm telling you that audience right now is siding with me on this. The audience that knows what Harry Carey is that they carry the audience the doesn't know. What sides with you guys he's not saying Harry Carey. Though HARAKIRI. Eric Berry. But if it's if I said you what is a broadcaster that this sounds most like come on? We're Dan. Fair I was talking. To be most fair, I was talking about depression and suicide, and they used to sit important you guys talk about the. Ask. Harry Carey. The. Classic. Hearing. Roy, do, you have you have a deciding vote on this as everyone gangs up on me because they didn't know what Harry Carey was heroin. It's Harry Carey you pronounce it like that Yeah Sarah. Now Roy, you knew what he was talking about. Bush strangers, Miami Florida State Break Roy where you like me did you think that they were doing a bit did you think I thought that was a brilliant line by Stugatz to say what was not a bit at all it was just him being ignorant like I thought he was being brilliant. This is what happens around here. I thought it was him being brilliant as character, but now it's just being ignorant this him turning into magic. What color is the dress man Harry Curie. To. Harry. Carey again. On. Asian suicide techniques. Shame on us, what is the suicide technique? Incidentally? Can you guys give me the definition of the Harry Carey of the Harry Carey. Yes. Can you give me the definition swatting a bad baseball team for like thirty? Okay. To put a show on this you canes talk the analogy I was trying to make last segment before we got sidetracked was right now the college landscape is a bear in vending machine and the canes the best option in there right now. But some bad news for canes fans is that that vending machine is getting restocked this weekend with some Lsu some Alabama. Like what's SEC? We look good right now, but it's it's It could be a little rough not not as not looking great in a couple of weeks. I can't remember the last time you am was an eleven point favorite against Steph issue going into a game and eleven point favorite I know as you is a laughing stock I know they lost Georgia tech at home I know we spent a lot of time laughing at all the. People who paint painted themselves in Garnet and gold and then lost a Georgia tech team that FSU was favored to beat by more than a touchdown I know it seems crazy but and I don't know enough. So I'm going to ask Mike who has watched these games of watch these teams but I've been listening to a lot of local sports radio over the last few days I have because by serious Xm subscription has up any to renew it. That's not the only reason and I enjoy listening to those guys actually is the strongest endorsement about that but I. What I feel like there's had to be a couple allies in there somewhere like they're always Chris again if you weren't I'm. Here with US earlier in the show everything that dribbles out of his mouth is uselessly not factual. But what I have heard is people like Leroy Hoard and others the big dog Giro's telling me that the Florida State seminoles or this is the worst Florida state team that they've seen in their lifetime. What is that pot? They're that bad I mean they looked really bad against Georgia Tech They've got a quarterback problem. They're still doing the blackman thing occasionally at quarterback when I say that I? mean his name is Blackman I mean, that is such a jerk reaction. They're only on one and they lost power five team at home. They've they've had plenty of bad losses along the years and then they go to overtime against the citadel recently or something like that. So GonNa knee jerk. Off of one, they're not good as evidenced by the line. This weekend they've had a tumultuous offseason where their brand new head coach lost the locker room before even stepped foot in the locker room, the coach has covid nineteen and won't be there on the sidelines and Miami yet you're absolutely right that the college football landscapes going to be a little bit more congested, but the ACC's looking like. A bit of visionaries right now with all these schools playing seven-game seasons without really room to reschedule Games ACC looks pretty smart and getting an earlier start because notre dame gets canceled backgammon gets pushed it assembly twelve. All these other conferences won't have opened dates in the College Football Playoff I. Know we're looking ahead here in terms of Miami, but that is going to be an absolute mess this year. I think that anyone who listens to this should be encouraged by what it is that I was saying that revealed itself against Louisville Louisville is Terrible Defense Louisville will allow a great many. plays of fifty sixty yards where you're looking and you're like, how did that happen with? No one near the dude like it's just apocalyptic bad defense but they have a quarterback and they have a kicker like those things are so I and I know it's kind of pathetic to say something like they have a kicker but they seem to have one of the best kickers in college football and there were. Too, many times with that team in recent years where you didn't trust them to make an extra point, entrust them to get twenty five yards, a fuel position on a punt from Eagle. So yeah, the the kicker is a Grad a graduate transfer from Fiu you might remember last year when he broke Miami over his need all sorts of long field goals in that game, they also have an offensive coordinator you. The the two broke down coverages that led to Lightning-quick touchdowns from Miami I heard read Lashley talk he was like in preparation for that game I had those two plays dialed up when they showed that look they wanted to make the Eric King make quick decisions and go through his aggressions and he did that he he's already shown you in two games against UAB admittedly and Louisville who was really good at home and is the fastest team. Miami's probably GONNA. Play all season long that he can beat you in more than one way and he's he's actually quite a good quarterback that offense I would say they might. Have a bunch of certainly the fast offense. No doubt they. Will Cunningham these are these are very fast players very fast. Players Clemson is pretty fast obviously it end. But people that know this is I mean throughout the skill positions that that's GonNa, test the defense and we'll see I have no idea what kind of Defense Louisville has historically bad. We'll see what happens this week I think they have pit coming up but I'm encouraged by by Miami I have respect for Louisville specially at home UAB as well. So you have respect for the UAB defense you have respect. For Louisville especially at home but you have no respect for Manny Diaz he's got earn your respect. He does he does I've been burned I've been so embarrassed by this team really embarrassed by this coach to last year was the worst year I can I can recall they had years where they were bowl eligible. I would have rather I to suffer that embarrassment in the bowl game was so humiliating this Gabby and earn your respect game though it cannot no no no no. What game will that be dino. Tagged yet or if they win this game and all these games, even when FSU had some really good teams playing against some Miami teams, those games were tight. So we'll see what happens with this off week to prepare, which is never good for main ideas for Clemson and I'm managing Clinton will the doors off of Miami and we'll have to sort of gather ourselves and set new expectations but that's the ultimate Ernie respect game one of its close what if they beat? Clemson but it's a very competitive game will manny of earn respect I think every I think every canes fan has the I. Know what you're looking for yes if they if They have a close game at Death Valley I'm going. To have the conversation like what percentage of respect to do they get from you or winning game? It's like I want to know where is your respect level before Louisville you had no respect for manny, Diaz none zero. It was zero percent yes. So He Beats Louisville and climbs up to what? On the respect spectrum eight, percent four percent. That's that's the best one of the college football season. I dare you to find a better one. This is such a trick and I'm playing on Louisiana I was. raging. Cajun's yeah. It was pretty good. Win Percentage of respect I don't WanNa Talk About College football i WanNa talk about Mike Inserts there's a pie chart and it starts with nothing okay. Yes. The Pie Chart. On the road and even though it was against the fastest team I believe they'll play all year. He was a team that Miami destroyed last year with a worst quarterback. So really maybe three percent more if they beat FSU and astroid. Fashion nothing nothing you're still at three percents. Here's FSU. Piece of pirate last year's FSU over last year's episode game was their best performance of the season. So N- two, percent two, percent, two percent more Joseph more. So go to five percents. Zero respect from anybody as entering this season zero and then recruiting he earned like four and a half percent. Oh. Wow. So we were closing in on ten percent total. Have you seen the new turnover chain, it is sending a message throughout the state. It is the state of Miami. It's the state of Florida the you over and the Tri County area is highlighted in orange, and green. We are keeping our athletes down here Knighton. That brushing running down the sideline with that NFL speed wasn't a do that ends up at Lsu ran away from. Secondary With Angle. Yeah. See Goodbye soon as the past left hand but his ten percent fair. So I'm wondering what happens if they beat Clemson bills in the one hundred percent right they beat. Close game against clumps Willoughby a full ninety percent fill in the PIE or no? No No. No. If they be Clemson it's that's a fill in the PIE. Scenario close now we're that we're talking about scores of back, just stop with the beating Clemson all of us. I could apponaug bill. Billy no, it can happen. Billy. Help me out and. Just. Not Listen Notre Dame you may WanNa say away from those day can't be Clemson we're GonNa do this again I mean we'll see like I've told you a couple of times already they go into these clemson games and you think they're going to win and they lose by seven touchdown while they've only gone into one clemson game. Out To after the AL golden experience and yeah, they they're kicking game was a disaster they were injured in that ACC championship game and just so happens that they were playing the best team in the nation which absolutely smashed Miami. If they keep a close, you want something to build on for an eventual rematch in the ACC championship game and I want to be able to get excited. For said rematch. That's all I want to see when they go to death valley but we can't look ahead pass you guys rivalry camp. The question I was going to ask you billy is how you feel about. An F. IU kicker named Jose ending up as the University of Miami's kicker because this has got a lot of different things. First of all I love that the the University of Miami has a player called Jose. I don't think they ever had a player called Jose before I can't remember off the top existed a long time. I know. But it's search, right? It's it's a different part of Miami right when my talks about the state of Florida or keeping people gated in here. In the region on recruiting. This is a different side of Florida, the Jose's and he comes from F.. I you did you think it was traitorous that he that he decided well, wait a minute. If I could beat you am I might as well go ahead. It was like Kevin Durant move except for a guy named Jose Yeah and he's not that good. I don't know why you're saying he's the best kicker in college football he seventy two percent fuels last year that's not good. Oh, we just need three percent the year before eighty three percent they trusted him out there too doesn't mean he's the best in college football. I didn't say he was the best year over year year over year. He's been the most impressive kicker so far. And seventy two percent while yes he's missed some kick seventy two percent is a tremendous upgrade over the likes of Bubba BACKSTA and this is a reverse Kevin Durant. I. Mean this is if Kevin Durant beep the Golden. State Warriors with okay. See and he was like I. Think I'm to go to Memphis correct me again billy if you think I'm wrong. But my my I thought that we've gotten spoiled back. NFL. Kickers College football kickers are not ninety percent kickers because their college football kickers like it's very rare who was the name? Was it the guy who failed in the pros that was at Fau f FSU excuse me was it a No it was was in a what was the name of Your. Yes he failed with the box. Wait a flex your bucks muscle, Weird Uruguay Oh muscle gave you to Florida state kickers as well but that was a guy that was a guy that was in ninety percent but that always stands out like if a guy if your guy in college football and I may be wrong about this because I don't know the math on it but I thought that if your guy in college football made eighty percent of his kicks that that was one of the best kickers in college football. Am I wrong? So last year in college football, the best kicker was I don't even know what AF is one hundred percent guy from Oklahoma was one hundred percent. Wake was ninety, six percent the guy from Tcu was ninety five point eight the guy from ws was ninety five point. Two Guy from Memphis was ninety two okay nineties. Yeah. I'm wrong men in the Hash marks a further apart in college football which adds to the difficulty that adds your bitch potentially I don't WanNa put on the. A huge, the biggest game NFL history, but just get ready because MRS are coming with no doubt I. Doubt I have more trust in in than Bubba backs, but that's not saying much. But if Bubba back some makes seventy, two percent of his kicks, that's a different in results that that's a big difference in Miami results they lost a lot of one possession games. You know when it got super lucky and made it to an orange bowl in two thousand, seventeen, they're winning these one score games since then Miami's been paying for their sins and been losing those results that they want in that season, I may have the wrong. Memory here but I feel like the University of Miami hasn't confidently trotted out a kicker to try a fifty seven yard field goal. The Way they did in the Louisville Gabor's since I was thinking since Jimmy Johnson now todd made a massive kick in Fiesta Bowl against Ohio state. That's one of the most pressure field kicks I've ever seen. It gets forgotten because of the flag but seaver was unbelievable I look it up but I'm still looking up all time. Jose's at the University of Miami we've had to walk. I'm on that. I mean like it's like seeing a Miami player named pepper like. It's confusing to me and player here comes our hopes rest on pepe. Yeah. You're also I, it's a college kicker man it. You'd saying that we can trust them because he nailed a fifty seven yarder against. Louisville always makes me nervous because I'm superstitious and engaging sky he's going to miss kit kicks obviously but he's better than Bubba Really this team needs for the uninitiated close out this local hour as. Miami fields like winners today the city feels like we're winning I just want to go back to Harry Carey and the formal definition of what Harry Carey is. It is a ritual suicide by disembowelment practice by the Japanese Samurai or formerly formerly decreed by a court in lieu of the death penalty I. Now want you to see the image I was trying to conjure earlier the waxy vending machine room. An impossibly sad place. Sheila's in their neck hurts and it's just sad and terrible and small, and you go to the vending machine and it's barren and you're really hungry and there is a cup of noodles and now you kill yourself by ornament ornamental ceremony. Asian death by disembowelment that is what I was trying to conjure for you guys and instead I conjured the old cubs broadcaster.

But maybe at times some of the voices voices that call the game and those that have had a long and I mean long history in the game and we get the chance to visit with the Atlanta braves longtime play by play man chip Kerry very spent time in Saint. Louis did briefly Cardinal Baseball Chicago cubs. He's done the NBA. He's done football and now the voice of the Atlanta braves chip always. He's great to visit with you. How are you doing great great to be with you? Tell me a little bit before we dive into. What's happening here with baseball? And some of the trends is in the game and changes. You might make the game let. Let's start with your history in Saint. Louis you are a Saint Louis native are you not. I am a born and bred but born in Saint Joseph's hospital nineteen sixty five down the street from the old checkered home. The old Saint Louis Arena. Our family. Joke is that I was probably conceived after a game at old sportsman's park porn shortly before the new ballpark opened up Grew up in Saint Louis and West County went to Parkway West High School graduated waited from there in one thousand nine hundred. Eighty three My Mom and dad ironically enough met at CAM LEX My mom was Bob. HYLAND secretary My Dad was doing radio shows of course with my grandfather. Doing the cardinals games and Bob Hyland was my godfather in Saint Louis and You know the Saint Louis Roots of roots run on deep. My mom still lives out in Saint Clair Missouri. My grandparents were in front Nak. I have aunts and uncles. Do and the like and Saint Louis very much apart by upbringing and You know knowledge of the cardinals and stuff. You know the drill. You're born in Saint. Louis you know that the nineteen sixty four cardinals starting to pour your ABC's and I was. I was certainly no difference. And if you're born born near the Checker Dome that means you've got blue blood. I mean Saint Louis Blues Blood. So you're Poland for the Blues Right now. Look you know how much that win for. The Blues means needs to the city of Saint Louis. You've done their games and did them so well for so long You know I'm fifty four years old and I'm probably one of the few people that will say this publicly. I absolutely absolutely eight Bob. Yours guts I hate that. I hate that iconic photo. I hate that statue Great player but knowing what that meant that the blues in the nineteen seventy finals settles was I absolutely heartbreaking. I was only five years old at the time But Yeah I'm rooting for the blues. Big Time it's been great for the city and it's right for for fans to have that much civic pride in in Emmett team other than the cardinals with all due respect. It's a great sports town. Great fans passionate fan base and To see the blues have that kind of success and to see the support too cardinals or giving him man. That's that's that's a great civics energy. I love it when you have the name. Kerry is in a blessing or a curse. When you're in our business I think it depends on who you ask The you know look I the first to admit to you that My last certainly has open doors. That probably wouldn't have been opened otherwise But at the end of the day as you know Dan it's performance driven industry and you can either do the job or you can't and there's only one way to say this My Dad's been gone now. Ten Years Harry's been gone almost Oh you know twenty five years now doesn't seem possible And those guys are not position to influence my career anymore and haven't been for quite some time and I'd like to think that I'm I'm pretty comfortable and capable in my own skin. I know what I'm doing. I have a little bit of both of their personalities. But I think I've done this my way in my own way and then the most difficult challenge for me was going to Chicago Nobody could replace the irreplaceable Harry Carey. Except maybe my dad or me and You know to to go up up there with the same last name working his booth with his partner with his producer his fans his microphone for Goodness Sakes If I was to go up there and try to be Harry Carey. The third erred and broadcast the Games. Exactly the way he did It wouldn't have worked and it did work for seven years It was great for my time up there but You Know Oh. I'm very proud of my family name. I've got a son Harry. Christopher carry the fourth who's in the broadcasting business now is a a college sophomore I've told him the same thing that my dad and grandfather told. Oh may be yourself tell the truth and have do those three things in that particular order then Yup good chance to be successful no matter your last name as you mentioned you are Harry. The third did your dad is. Is Harry the second. And then there's Harry Carey And then your dad went skip you go by chip. I'm assuming that's by design. I mean if you if you go around around saying well I'm Harry Carey but that's a tough way to make a living isn't it. Yeah well that's why people ask what you're giving him. I mean how many I can't tell you. The number of times in Highschool School Parkway West first day in class you walk in and the teachers reading the role you know. Okay here's an ebay CEO Harry Carey and everybody everybody laughs right. That's I mean it's standard tr. I still get that go to the post office and they look at my mail go Harry Carey. That's a funny name So yeah by design. My Dad said Said I'm my uncle actually called the chip off the old block My son is Harry the force whose Middle Name is Christopher. So he's doing by Chris. That was my uncle's name. I am so there's some families synergy there But yeah I I don't think in this day and age you want to go through life being Harry. That's not the best person names to try to deal with. especially as this business because as you said you gotta do it yourself and be your own person. There's an iconic photo of you your dad and Harry altogether at Wrigley Field and correct me if I'm wrong but that was right before Harry passed away but you had the chance to do a game. Three generations of carries behind a microphone for a major elite game. Tell me about that It was surreal quite honestly and as the same time gone through the hourglass. Appreciate it more now as a mid fifties year old person than I did at the age of twenty four twenty five when I was doing. Those Games People have had this. I think misnomer that I was born with a silver broadcasting spooner silver microphone was put my Crib Rib and I had Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners my grandfather and my dad. That wasn't the case sadly My grandfather and grandmother horse my mom and dad divorced I didn't not much of them. Growing up I kind of connected with them via television and cable. TV when it penetrated West County in the nineteen eighties early eighties. I was a typical high. School kid came home and watch the cubs in the afternoon. When did my homework chores went to baseball? Practice came back and watch the rage. Play the giants at ten o'clock at night But you know I That day is just sort of surreal My grandfather was an orphan. Grew up in the south part of Saint Louis right behind. Union station didn't know his parents He had this great sense of familiar. Pride with my dad following in his footsteps he was kind of tricked into it With Bob Hyland a camel ex and to see his son and then his grandson. I'm doing what he did. I mean my grandfather is the personification of a self made Saint Louis Guy and he appreciated that moment perhaps more than anyone because I think he felt felt that he was finally successful. Something other than baseball He knew his son was successful. He knew his son was a very talented and capable baseball guy and then his son John was trying to teach those lessons to me to get into the business and Be Yourself be your own person It went by in a blur. We only did that one game together in Chicago. I'll never forget walking down the street with about twenty cameras and Blue Microphones and my dad and his sarcastic way lead over to me and said now I know what John Gotti feels like courthouse. No because it was a big deal but as a bigger deal too. I think my dad and my grandfather than it was to me You Know Harry was a guy that loves the limelight light loved the publicity loved be Harry Carey. He was a professional Harry Carey My Dad was much more private much more reserved. I'm a little bit of both But but I think The pride of that moment for my grandfather's the thing that I will take to my grave because again I didn't know him very well and to see that he had made something of himself himself and came from truly. Nothing Was a remarkable success story. And so for that. I'm eternally grateful and I'll never forget it being the Saint Louis Native And we talked about your love of the blues. You were telling me recently and maybe you can Explain this to the listeners. But you're telling me that the Saint Louis Blues whose name we may have Harry Carey to thank for that with the Solomon Brothers who owned the team. Tell tell me a little bit about that. I well I. It's kind of an urban legend. And I I have nothing to base this on fact but it's something that I heard and I never was able to confirm this with my grandfather People forget that Harry Did all sports in Saint Louis and back. In those days there was more than one rightsholder for baseball games so to make ends meet the Nineteen Thirties. Nineteen thirty four thirty thirty five. The Saint Louis Flyers were a professional hockey team in Saint Louis and Harry did so their hockey games and then he left and came back and like we all do in our careers made his way. Back To his hometown but he became friendly with the Solomon Brothers when the blues an expansion team and they were looking for the team name and they were bandaging some things about my grandfather grandfathers who had a great love of music. I mean this is a guy that got off. The Cardinal Bus in Harlem one night went to the Cotton Club by himself to o'clock working He said he said well. You know Saint Louis is known for its great music. You know the Saint Louis Blues and for some reason that name apparently stuck now whether it came from grandfather someone else. I can't confirm but I heard that he had mentioned that name. And that phrasing to the Solomon Brothers and somehow someway. That was the name that eventually stuck for the Saint Louis Hockey team. So yeah if if true you know my grandfather's tentacles for Saint Louis sports go far beyond The Saint Louis cardinals the nineteen sixties and and fifties and forties.

I love this conversation with one of my best friends in the business and truly one of the greats in this business and that's chip Kerry chip I. I want to go more into your your family history. We can with your your dad. Who here was just a great voice of Baseball? That's my best I can deal. And then a Harry Carey. I are those those are pretty decent right. You're not beg your John. Miller is off the charts good ebb chip and chip is a three three generation. Dose Trace. Ace Anyway I digress. I want to get more into you. So let's talk with Jim Carey here growing up around the business. I and seeing what your dad went through following a legend and then following your grandfather's you mentioned in our first segment from afar. What was that like for a youngster in Chip Carrie growing up in Saint Louis and loving the cardinals And just growing up in the business in seeing how it all played out. What did you take away from that experience as a kid took away a lot of things number one. It is as I said a couple of times a personality driven business. That had to be myself if I was going to be successful in it nobody can do Harry Carey. Nobody could be. We skipped Jerry. Nobody can be Jack. Buck Mike Shannon Bob Starr you put on the list of of guys that have been in the business a long time. You have to be yourself and and with that you have to have the courage of your convictions to go out and do the games the way that you think you need to do them I think as a young broadcaster I was fortunate not to have the twitter and facebook facebook era that we have now. Where every single thing you say? is micro analyze and play back. I mean look we we work in a business where there's really you know safety net. It's live TV and I'm sure you would agree Dan. Their Games said stuff it's Incorrect not by any lack of preparation. Asian but just happens The broadcast or trying to make your way in the twitter and facebook world. We live in now. I can't imagine how much more difficult it is for those folks to find their own voice choice and to stick with it when you have the constant drumbeat of criticism a out of jealousy or be out of Just downright twitter bravado that we all seem seem to to see all the time So that part of it was was a blessing Getting the basketball I for me. I think it was a big help Because if I'd done a Kamajor League Baseball at twenty four right away as a full-time basis the inevitable comparisons would have probably been a soul crushing to a certain degree I did it in Orlando Bill. I got away from Atlanta. I was in Saint Louis. I did the basketball for the Orlando Magic. Their first seven eight years of their existence. So I was in a smaller market and learning how to do this doing minor league baseball down there as well so I was able to get out and forge my own style. Have some success grow with the team and an expansion situation developed my own style and my own cadence and my own way of doing things which I think knock on wood is served me pretty well so Again as I said earlier segment I wasn't born with a silver microphone in my career. I had to go out and do like everybody else knows to grindstone suffer the slings and arrows improve work hard and hopefully advancing thank goodness. I've been able to do that. How many people come up to you? And you're in Saint Louis Louis whether when you were here as a kid and they saw Kerry and they said well well carry man. That's a unique name. Are you related to skip and Harry and and then you said yes and then how many people on a follow up to that had a story about either your grandfather or your dad all of them. I mean it's remarkable Your hand out your license to go write a car and Clayton where our team motel was and they look at me and are you related to area so yup grandson. Oh my God. You're kidding I it's really a fascinating fascinating thing you know. My grandfather left Saint Louis right before the nineteen seventy season and You know he's been gone from there almost fifty years and he left an indelible impact on so many people not just in Saint Louis but through cardinal nation through that fifty thousand blowtorch. Fifty thousand watt blowtorch on camel acts. They still remember Harry Harry Carey calling the cardinals in nineteen sixty four that dramatic finish and Bob Gibson and boyer's Grand Slam and beating the Yankees and all that stuff like we all do That is intensely gratifying and The same for my father dad went to Webster Groves High School. People ask you know every now and then we miss your dad and I went to webster groves with them. I mean that. That's what's the the the great thing about baseball in the midwestern towns You do become an extended part of their family and I think all of us who do who this business look. We love the game. We Love the sport but ultimately what we love is the connection that we have with the fans. Because that's what we're supposed to be serving and my grandfather grandfather was very very honest in in that Approach he didn't work suits he worked for the fans My Dad the same way. I'd like to think I do at the the same way and we never have forgotten our western routes. We still have as I said family. There is grandparents who were buried there I love visiting Saint Louis There there is something that pulls your heartstrings. When you go there if you're from there because you just get the culture you understand it You're not a mercenary. You bleed cardinal red no matter what uniform perform broadcast for now simply. Because that's the team you grew up watching and that's that's an amazing thing and to to be recognized in a small way as a relative of someone who meant so much to that franchise into that fan base is extremely humbling. Get extremely gratifying. Even as I say with my grandfather gone almost twenty five years now as you. I know quite well better than I am. Others that are in the industry. And maybe the first of our families to be broadcasters. You're away from your family nonstop especially especially if you're doing sports year round so with your dad in particular number one. was he around much when you were a kid. And how close were you to. Oh your father and number two. How often did he evaluate your tapes in your broadcasting and those types of things as you went along in your career a good questions Number one the answer is no My Dad wasn't around much My Dad mom or strive was five years old I was in we were in Atlanta Dad was doing the saint. Louis Hawks folks you might recall and follow the Hawks Hawks from St Louis to Atlanta. For the reasons I just mentioned he needed to find his own way and get out from under the gigantic shadow. Harry Carey Look He wanted to avoid the nepotism stuff and he had to go prove himself in a smaller market. which at the time was Atlanta? And he did that But I was five years old and they were living in Atlanta. Never forget I remember the day My Dad left A Green nineteen sixty seven. Mercury Cougar convertible. He backed out of the driveway way. My mom lives there. Her parents were there and I said where's dad going and she said he's going on a long road trip and that's how it was explained to me That my parents working it could be together anymore. And so we moved back to St Louis Move back there when I was in third or fourth grade and and stay there until I graduated from high school and I only saw my dad for visitation He was down Atlanta building a career he had to get his feedback. Got Back underneath them and only when I went to college at the University of Georgia. Did we really start to connect enact father and son and even then it was kind of a more of a friendship basis than it was father and son Once I got into business he obviously took a little more interest in what what I was doing. He never critiqued my tapes. He never You know really watched my games other than I guess what. Parental Pride. Whatever comments he had he kept to himself which was a good thing because I was real awful in the eighty nine was the magic fifteen games and I was worse than the team but stuck with it You know but but really the the the turning point for me was when I went to Chicago and was doing the cubs games We knew there was gonna be a chance that I was going to get to work with my grandfather and closed that parental grandfather loop From a personal basis. Forget the baseball side of it. I mean it would've been great to hear about Jackie Robinson's debut and watching. Ching every at bat that Stan musial had all of that stuff that my grandfather got to see From a history standpoint but just to hang out and find out what it was like going up on nineteen in Seventeen Lasalle street behind union station. Not Knowing your parents being penniless orphan kids selling newspapers to make ends meet Working in Kalamazoo Michigan with chick. Check her and Getting the cardinals job You know with the bravado walking in and saying hey I can do a better job than the guy. You're hiring. All those kinds of family stories is a history three that we never got to We never got to fill because he died before I was able to work with him in in Nineteen Ninety Eight So the so that part of it was hard from grandfather rainfall standpoint and that's why I left Chicago in many respects to come to Atlanta. I didn't want to not know my dad and Once I came back to Atlanta I got to be a son. I wasn't unhealthy at the end of his life. I got to buy and lunch. I got to take his luggage to his room on the road. Got To have a drink with him after a road trip I got to take into the doctor And and do all things that as a son. I always dreamed of being able to do but I got to do it when I was forty years old. Eighteen and for that I will always be grateful for The braves for allowing the opportunity to come back here and work with might add and hopefully Fill his shoes capably abeille on the TV side. Was Your Dad close at all to Harry. He was very You know back in the day it was You know sort of expected that the sun followed in the father's business and we always joked that's kind of what we call it. The family business for US You know people say. Oh it's nepotism blah blah But nobody says that if it's a third generation lawyer or a family on plumbing business in the sun and the grandson takeover and take it to new heights of for whatever reason because we're doing baseball and we're traveling with the team and we're on radio or TV people assigned to different importance to it. Then then perhaps they should But yes he was very close to my grandfather You know by dad was a great shining success for Harry Gary and that he got into the business that he went to college. My grandfather could only have dreamed of doing. But I say that with one caveat As I said earlier Harry was a professional entertainer. It IOS Beer Babes and baseball and there were times when my dad would come home from the University of Missouri in want to meet Harriet Sports Park and go to dinner and herring signing autographs. She was always Harry. He was never just dad. and that's the comment. My Dad made and I think I learned a very valuable lesson in that that there has to be balanced and I think my dad was very very good good at that balance. When it's time to have fun nobody had more fun in the booth or in the bar after the game that my dad but when it was time for the ball in play and big moment of a Game Basketball Ascot Ball football baseball you name it? There was nobody in my opinion better than he when it came down to doing the business of baseball and then it was when the game was over. We'd ride home from the Ballpark and talk about all kinds of things life in general and That was the balance that I think my dad saw was missing from his dad. And hopefully that's something else that was passed down to me. Final question in this segment. Men are guests chip carry the voice of the Atlanta Braves. Saint Louis Native Saint Louis in his blood third-generation now of the carries doing major league baseball. And this baby a tough question for you for you chip but Correct me if I'm wrong. There was a story and And you've related this to me and I've seen it on the MLB network special but win. Win Harry came to one of your literally Games Basically you're told that your grandfather and you didn't really know what Harry looked like or really hadn't met him can you. Can you describe what's kind of the other way around the stories. True Harry's Third Duchy who's from Saint Louis Doors Johnson Had Her had a son who was two years older than I was and was going to the same high school I went to Parkway West and Roger Johnson was the Catcher on the baseball team and Harry was that Manchester Chester Athletic Association on Manchester. One forty one watching him play on the big field we had played an earlier. Game and One of the coaches. Hey are the kids are saying. Hey your grandfather's here so cool so I walked by and he's an stands and I walk by and wave. Harry have no idea who it was. And and You know obviously I was crushed by that and I sort of went off and sculpt off to the side of the Stadium much the game. One of my coaches came over and said what's wrong and explain the story. My coach grabbed by the shoulder and walk me over and said walked up to Harry in the band between innings of the big game and say Mr Kerrey. Welcome to our ballpark a young player. Here's pretty good. I'd like you to meet shook his grandfather's. Hey young man how are you and the coach said. This is your grandson. And I was mortified Harry was mortified and fifteen people around him were mortified. And that's the point that I've made so many times. I Have Harry's last name and I'm grateful for that I. I wish that I had known him better. I have no animosity towards him in any way shape or form but I don't call them my grandfather He's Harry and and That's that's Kinda sad thing. I wish I had a chance to spend time with him. Like I said with that cubs job because of those Similar bonds that will always be either. I think are a little bit afraid and never were able to be connected because untimely passing great conversation here with one of the best in the Business Saint Louis native chip Kerry back with more in a moment.

Continue my conversation with chip carry in just a moment my triad bank is a full service financial institution. They have joined the scoops Danny Mac family. I've joined them.

Our relationship ship approach gives are valued clients. The Comfort of knowing all of their banking needs will be satisfied by a locally owned financial institution. Right here in in Saint Louis It's Triad Bank. You walk through their doors. Jim Ryan is there. He'll sit down. Have a cup of coffee with you and talk about what you need for your family or your business I I use them I hope you do. AS WELL TRIAD BANKING DOT COM TRIAD BANKING DOT COM proud sponsor of scoops with Danny Mac dot com. You hear the name. Carrie Buck Brennaman. And all those guys are legendary broadcasters with sons that are becoming legends in this game game. How often do you talk to Joe or to Tom? Who Follows Marty? Joe Obviously following Jack You following your your legendary dairy father and grandfather. How often did you guys ever talk and say? Hey how are you handling the pressure of having this last name and being in this business or did you guys do not at all I. I didn't really talk to either one of them about it To be honest with you I remember when Tommy was leaving Arizona. He called me At home and asked me about what what what he should expect because the reds wanted him to come back home and sort of be the guy the natural progression of the torch in Cincinnati's booth what that was like and I told him it's great If you get a chance to work with your dad you know you don't know how much longer any of us are going to be around. Take the chance And I think the same with Joe Kenny Albert. What comes to mind as well? Tom McCarthy and Philadelphia has a son. WHO's getting into business? F P Santangelo. Son is trying to do it out in San Francisco That would be my advice and that was. That was the only conversation I had with. Tommy the great thing I think is that all of those guys you mentioned got kind of a boost. Their Dad's Picked up the suitcase. When someplace someplace else built their own career built their own success and every single opportunity they had was allowing them to come back home? I think that says an awful lot about Who these guys are what they've done? What the organizations think of their family and what they're getting with this newest generation of people? I mean it isn't easy to come home all the time and a lot lot of times. It doesn't work out very well for for myriad reasons but I think in the case is Danny of of the guys you mentioned That's probably the greatest compliment of all that they've been allowed to go spread their wings and then fly back to the nest as it were and all of them have had a great deal of success and that's to be a congratulated. I think it's a terrific story. In every case agreed. Did you mentioned something earlier in our show about facebook twitter social media. How do you think your dad or Harry would've handled being how they were four? And in today's Day and age social media both away from the Mike and Mike. How do you think they would have handled it? Well I'll give you an example of how my grandfather father would have handled it Harry worked in Chicago. And obviously you had the cubs white sox things you didn't know if the people didn't like it didn't like it because the cubs and the white sox or they I just didn't like it period. My grandfather had terrific way of answering. Hate Mail Somebody would send him a letter via snail mail and he would get it in the guy or Gal which is ripping the no one combined with air their grievances like the you know the the festivus in June deal and Harry return the piece of paper over and right very simply the on the note. Dear Dan some blankety blank blank blank has gotten a hold of your home address. Just thought you'd like to know regards very caring. You can quit that paperback envelope and send it right. Back to them I think my dad will do that as well But you know in this business. Get thick-skinned you know they're going to be people who are going to be critically critics of your work I I I go back to the Teddy Roosevelt quote. You know it's not about the critic but it's the guy in the arena and most of the people who criticize your work have never done. I don't know the pressures inherently in this job of representing a TV networker radio network of ballclub the players. Here's the fans. All of those things are constantly balls. That are being juggled in the air. And you're doing real time But I I think both of them Developed enough of a thick skin that they sort of Were able to Process the constructive criticism. Maybe learn from it And the other stuff you just throw away as as part of the job as I said before before the difference is now it happens in real time and It's kind of like talk radio with one big difference on talk radio it's the host that has the dump button The host doesn't like what the caller has to say or the guest has to say they can say okay interviews over boom go to the next one With social media. It's spigot that you can't turn off That's why I'm not on it. That's why I don't participate in it anymore. it's it's not worth the angst and the aggravation It's unfortunate that's what it's turned into because as we know most of the people who say these things to anybody on twitter wouldn't have the courage to do it face to face and in person so I just choose not to participate in that particular swamp and I think my grandfather and dad while they would have been Very happy to be tested to answer. I think they'd be smarter up. Say That's not for me. You have a favorite moment behind behind the MIC Full boy favorite moment behind the MIC. you know so similar wire was pretty pretty special You know no in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight look knowing what we know. Now in some quarters having tarnishes the nineteen ninety eight season for mcgwire Sosa. It doesn't for me. In my opinion you have to hit the ball But having said that Bush Stadium Saint Louis Mark. Maguire Facing Steve trachsel hits that Topspin line drive there over the fence in left fields and nationally televised game and I remember Fireworks going off big celebration Sosa. mcgwire hug at Old Bush And I look over to the cardinals radio booth. And there's Jack Buck wearing a cardinal red jacket standing applauding with tears streaming down his face. Now this is the man who went through unspeakable little things in World War Two a guy that forged his own Great Hall of fame identity. Maybe the greatest broadcaster in in Certainly mid western history if not all the baseball fall and I say that with all their respective in scully With tears streaming down his face watching this moment because he knew Rodriguez he knew how big this record was in the history the sport and what it meant to baseball and I got chills watching that and then Jack talking over on our WGN broadcasts Talking about the game and we all know how ill Jack Doc was and those of us who had the good fortune of knowing him know what a great sense of humor he had while we wait to get on. The Air Jack Book comes over puts his head sticks to talk about this moment and put it into some historical context and he puts on headphones and says hey guys. What's Shakin decides me both folk? Stephen I were or you know laughter but grateful for that but Watching Jack Buck Watching that moment in Saint Louis mean working to cubs being lucky enough to be there for the cubs side out of that home. Run Chase what that season to me is my first in Chicago following my grandfather That one's if not the top five. It's certainly the top two and Tab Front row seat to history on that magical night in that ballpark where. LS Lou. Brock's three thousand fit and caught a foul ball from Ted Simmons as a kid that was That was as good as it gets gets for me. Did Jack Help you When you got the job and you started doing Major League Games and and Jack worked with Harry and there were some good moments some bad moments and and you're so what did he tell you A great story I was brought to to Pittsburgh When Ken Wilson was getting ready to leave Saint Louis they weren't gonNA bring him back? So they brought me into Pittsburgh doing audition Couple of games thou Rabovsky and I'll never forget sitting in the lobby of that old Western Hotel by the Convention Center USA Today Newspaper Getting Ready for the game and Jack was off that evening so Jack and Carol were walking walking across the little skywalk there after having lunch or breakfast or whatever and all of a sudden this quarter comes pinwheel through the air and go plans splat right on top of my newspaper and Jack Bunker flip the quarter and he started laughing. He came downstairs. Couldn't have been more gracious. He said good luck yet. You'RE GONNA do Great Al's GonNa Walk You through anything. You need just have a good time awesome. Thanks so much. That's great advice and is it all just one more thing. So what's that he said. Don't blanket up. So he descended on my way with kind of his endorsement of PAT on the back and go get him and Hours great we had a great time. I came back and did some games for the cardinals in New York about a week. Later and Had a chance to work in Saint Louis. Unfortunately that didn't work out but Gullible Moment Jack Brock sort of giving you a pat on the back and for him. I'm sure sort of a closure closure of circle to he knew the JOE's in the business I was getting started he was. He went out of his way to make me feel comfortable in part of the team. And I'll always be grateful for that. What would be your advice advice to young broadcasters? Like your son which I'm sure you've given him plenty of advice. But what. What advice do you give them? The first bit of advice for my son is get a haircut and get a job take off the payroll every says. Yeah exactly as fast as you can No seriously like upset a couple of times but yourself I will open every door. I can't afford him but ultimately he's got to walk through it and he's got to develop his own style. He's GonNa make mistakes I would avoid social media at all costs. If you're on it now as a high score get off it scrub your profile. Because people are GonNa look at that and if you set or anything that's stupid teenagers will do. And I say that respectfully It's going to be discussed and talked about and you don't need that hassle astles you could go in your career I would suggest read everything you can. Even those old fashioned things called newspapers Reach Shakespeare read You Know Hemingway Chaucer to read all of it. You never know when that stuff will come. Thirdly I would say Get used to being away as you said Dan you know He missed birthdays. Anniversaries you miss the big moments in your life life. I've got four children. I've seen half of their lives because we don't live where I work. That's hard You have to reconcile that with a lifestyle that you're able to provide even though you are away for a great great deal of of the time be fair to the players It is very hard playing major league baseball. I have never ever said. That's an easy play. or Wow he should have made that play. Life never seen a ninety five mile an hour fastball. And quite frankly I think it's a miracle that anybody ever gets a hit in this game And then lastly you gotTa have fun you got to be a little kid. You gotTA laugh at Yourself. You've got to laugh at the stupid stuff that comes up and you have to be a strong enough and confident. Enough that You are ultimately working for the fans hands and not the suits and It's a big business. It's very important but you are there to represent the game for the fans who can't be there in person on radio and television television and if you can do those things in whatever order you you see I think you have a great chance to be successful have terrific career and hopefully my son will because I'm getting older and need someone to push my wheelchair wheelchair about thirty years and I hope he's up to the task. I understand that too final question for you. You mentioned Vince. Gully Jack Buck Marty Brennaman all these great Dick Enberg. I mean you've met them. All is one thing or one story that stands out from one of those broadcaster that that that really has resonated with. Did you in all your years of doing professional sports absolutely first Major League game opening day nineteen ninety-one Braves Dodgers Old Fulton County Stadium. You did games. They're the old TD boozer separated by plexiglass window Doing the game would earn Johnson. I'm his color guy. I'm twenty five years old. I'm scared to death. I don't know what I'm doing but I'm in the major leagues and We finished the lineup. We did our open. We put our headsets down. I I take it off and I look out and I went. Oh my God. I'm a major league broadcaster and on the dance to me on the Vince Gully was standing in the back of our booths during a cup of coffee and listening because he knew Harry he knew my dad He walked out of our booth. Stirring a cup of coffee. Offi walked down the steps which were adjacent to that plexiglass wall where I could see him. And he takes his hall of fame ring and goes tap. TAP TAP on the PUCK glass window and I look up and there's been scully smiling impeccably dressed with his coat and ties during a cup of coffee and he looked at means and mouthed the words welcome to the club and in for twenty five year. Old Kid. who is trying to make his own way. Who was as green as the greenest apple you've ever seen in your life to be welcome to the club club by the Voice of Baseball? Didn't scully mental to me. And I've realized that story to him every time I've seen him and I will always have a debt of gratitude for that moment because for the first time in my life quite frankly I felt like I finally belonged to something and He's a big reason why and As I've said so many times just it's amazing. What a simple phrase will mean to somebody whether it's in person on radio or on TV? Unfortunately for me was been scully.

I. Thought the I thought the sneezing The suicide segment was the Harry Carey segment was the best segment today. 'cause you said Harry Carey committed suicide Mike. Can Burbank. Ride I bought both Harry. Carey had committed suicide and little did we did not? So I mean that's that's kind of the picture you painted to me. That was my favorite. All right. We should make that another poll billy at Lebatardshow. What was the best segment today was had vending machines or was it Harry? Caring anyone get made sad at the end of the Stevo thing like I feel like. It's just this is just he's just a he's performing for us talking about all the like insane things that he was in a really dark place for like I. Know I'm being that guy and I'm sorry but at the end of it, I was like, Oh this is crazy fun stories and then I was like man, this is sad of course, I mean drug addiction and depravity of that level is but he's been sober for a long time and one of. The things that is a rationalization for having those stories told publicly again, and again is the idea that you'll bring someone out there help with your sobriety. It's one of the reasons it's over people get sober are so publicly vulnerable they speak about it in in the idea that their words will reach somebody because he's telling you right there. He's saying look I loved it, and it's great but also I had to quit because it was making me fundamentally crazy. I wanted to ask him more questions like I wanted to continue. That guy can run through our entire season and I'd be good with that being our only celebrity prognosticator at Lebatardshow was the poll is always the place that you get the polls. What do you have their stu gods because I wanted to hear what some of the people had to say about that vending machine congress as the last item left in a barren vending machine being a honey bun said. Seventy. Nine percent of the audience said. I mean, of course it is is the peanut butter cracker in the top three vending machine items. Fifty five point five percent of the audience said, no, that's an outrage. It seriously I think if we'd put orange crackers, their people might have a better visual of what it is. We were talking about I think that's the failure of the poll system. Okay. Are Pop tarts in the top of the rankings of vending machine items or the bottom of the rankings of vending machine items, me and Tony Thick it's top Dan things at the bottom. Bottom wins out fifty nine point three percent of the audience said bottom but Tony me the great point if you're in the mood, if you haven't had breakfast yet and you stumble across vending machine, the only thing in the vending machine that's worthy of breakfast is pop tarts. That's shit. What what are you didn't light savers Optics are overrated there I said he said. It has been said they're just like one of you ever had a have you ever been satisfied with a breakfast. Learn how a last resort the of your breakfast it's a piece of a balanced breakfast. It's not the entire breakfast. You get a nice bowl of frosted flakes. You get a nice pop tart like that's what combined them. All. Right. So many different flavors to I've never like I've never said to somebody I had the best breakfast. This morning I had more pop tart. Put it in a jackass you ever put in the toaster. I'm that Jackass Wow. Wow. I think that's gets the final word on this. Okay. Really not try to the way Jag as well. Have you ever had a toaster. That's what the show going to sound like as we. Okay. We're I'm telling you for our long. We're doing this. It will be a time where we're talking to people and they're not even GonNa know what a toaster is. Still, going to be out of here, defending the toaster calling someone a jackass. Backward add segment. How many times has he done as you see on the third? Is it the third four time that he's done? It's amazing. It's like six million dollars a year. Blossom. It's unbelievable. Great. Take it isn't take. Final ball out lebatardshow on twitter. If that song was exactly the same and released by Calvin Harris instead of in diesel would a grammy. Seventy eight percent of the audience said, yes, Billy. One of the frustrating things about what happened with the terrestrial radio show is there's not enough room to move around inside all of the sponsorships and updates and everything else I feel like you could have gone ten minutes on that vin diesel song the the smile that came across your face when we played the music you and Chris the both of you you were you were swooning with delight I wanted to hear everything you had to say about a vin diesel singing. I Made I'm going to be honest. I cannot talk ten minutes about Vin diesel song. That's like two minutes long. adding. helped. It's been diesel. He released a song where all places like Kelly Clarkson show because of course, that's where indies would release his. New Song. Digital fans dancing along to it as we're watching computer screens having people awkwardly clap off rhythm because everybody's on a computer and it's going to be. A nightmare dancing on a digital screen like just going I wanNA watch the Kelly Clarkson show from my house which you could just. TV I'm assuming right but no, I want to be part of the Kelly Clarkson show crowd. So you go and then the like. All right guys. Big News. Today, we're getting the release of the Vin Diesel Song. We're GONNA. Need you all dance to it and we're going to show you dancing from your living rooms to the new vin diesel song on the Kelly Clarkson show. I think you do have ten minutes in you. I think if I keep poking and prodding you I will absolutely get ten minutes. I think billy has ten minutes on anything that's the thing. That's the thing. Here's another thing anything honestly though doesn't that seem like a nightmare you like think of nightmares you. Okay. Dan. You're not someone that strikes me as someone that wants to be virtual crowds right. But like given all of the virtual crowds situations that you could be in perhaps the one where you have to just be dancing in the virtual crowd seems like the worst of all the options right says most of them are just sitting there like, oh Basketball player rule. Clap terrible option when they're like that's Dan. So we're GONNA show you on national TV dancing in your living room of Vin diesels new song that seems like the worst of the virtual crowd situations right? It. Is Bad Chris were you laughing or you read face right now with laughter because of how quickly you worked in such a tight window that was amazing. The way right he's laughing at him seller you laughing at yourself there how quick you are getting a word in with STU WHA, amid. I love it because it's tough with zoom. So when I get one you. Crowd I love the self. Celebration. Have Thought. I was trying to listen to you billy and also trying to follow why it is that Chris fell out of his zoom camera red face laughing in how quickly he got in and out of their did any of you guys think incidentally, this sound I've got a credit someone here is all the smoke Mike. I got a credit all the smoke for playing this out. So they do a good job on their podcast. If, you've got Steven Jackson and. Forgetting his first name. And they're talking to Alan Iverson and Alan Iverson is being. A little shadowy with how it is that he's explaining that he doesn't want to name the person that he hey, the podcast is what Matt Barnes does when he's not looking for Derek Fisher that's right. All the smoke. Thank you and so here is that Harrison Barnes would have been weird fit. That wouldn't have fit exact the same all the smoke I can't know Harrison. Barnes. Yeah. Not really seems like a nice. Man. He doesn't fit well, it does it's not that Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson. They're just more rugged. They have a reputation at Harrison. Barnes. Doesn't they are barbed wire harrison barnes is not but here's Alan. Iverson. It was one of the things that was cool about listening to this is you could tell the reverence all really for St, Stephen Jackson and Matt Barnes specifically because of what you're talking about Mike that Alan Iverson represented that to them before they became guys in the League who were giving off just all of what that is the all the smoke podcasts Alan. Iverson. Gets credit as an inefficient basketball player for basically being the realist before it was easy to be the realist and so he was the face at basketball generation while Koby might be remembered as the best player especially now that it's posthumous thing you grew up wanting the arm slave, you wanted to look like Alan Iverson he trained sending the sport any set like eight fashion for the time it was interesting to watch Stephen Jackson and Matt Barnes sort of genuflect before a guy that is before them better at the stuff that they're representing they were like bench players on this podcast. Deferring to the superstar because of the cultural representation of what all this is Alan Iverson was living a crazy life. stugotz. I did a magazine story on him where I went to Philadelphia and it was a positive magazine story and it's my only real interactions with Alan Iverson over an extended period and the stories were amazing at how he was living. You know a guy would always get to have to be sent back to the city they were in because Alan Iverson had left blank amount of cash in the hotel room Tens of thousands of dollars in the hotel room and on multiple times he was living such a crazed a hip hop life right? Just living the basketball superstar nightclub live showing up at practices with liquor on his breath. Making Larry Brown crazy You know having that that practice rant. Because everyone knew how hard Allen Iverson, play let's be honest though it seems like the tiniest things can Dr Larry, brand crazy. You're absolutely right. So now imagine that tiny thing being six foot tiny. Alan Iverson because he was making him totally crazy. But a totally beloved athlete and he comes on here. And I I really respect and admire the relationship Stephen. A Smith has with Alan Iverson because Stephen Smith is friends with Alan Iverson but Stephen a Smith is also called out Alan Iverson away that was very public that helped save Alan. Iverson from some of his demons because Stephen a Smith was reporting that Alan Iverson was drinking too much partying post career and he was doing it because he was worried about Alan, Iverson and the fact that they've been able to repair their relationship when. I was really mad at Stephen Smith for reporting that stuff and all. Stephen. Smith said was hey, I could have reported a lot worse about you and you know it. I'm trying to I'm trying to help you here by by reporting your embarrassment to the world. So perhaps you might get some help. Anyway he's not talking about Stephen a Smith here I don't know who he's talking about even though the telling me it's wet locked but many of you thought he was talking about me because it involves my father. So here's the sound of from all the smoke I know you ate me and trust me trust me I don't hate nobody. Yes. I do I hate you. Is One guy did you know what I'm talking to the days talking about right now? I, know to. One dot not it ain't who you think it is server I got love for skipping. So you know I know people think skip is not you? What is the guy did do exactly what you do and just trust me the way you hate me. Hate you villa's mutual main feeling is mutual and you don't help me. And I hope you and I'm fine. I'm fine I'll. Regardless of how much you talk about me. I. Just know and and I'm not mentioning your name because I didn't want the whole world to even know that. When I give you that type of love but you know you know. You and you did. You. See. Now that right there see, that's that's for me. I was enjoying that clip just listening to it the same way you guys were the same way you guys were, which is like Ooh, who's it going to go after going to name him is going to name names going after somebody's going hard here, and then he threw my father's face into the mix and I was confused because I heard that. And I also looked in a mirror for a moment and ask myself wait a minute. Have I done something wrong or as my father done something wrong to Alan Iverson as a good chance you dad may have and you had no idea of it. I. Now, I understand having heard the SAM why you would. It's you because we've never met Mr Whittaker. So weird I love how everybody just assumes that skip like he's just the go-to I hate this person in the media like, Oh, I know who who you're talking about. Like it's not skip actually but Chris was skip, it's no longer skipped. It's now whitlock and is that. The thing is I was going to the barber shop and I went down and sat down in the chair and all the sudden I see that come across my timeline, you and your daddy like Oh. My God this is not going to be good tomorrow we are going to have a lot to talk about. So thankfully it was. He said it as if it were some sort of hint as to who was. Yeah. I love how it's Why are we? Yet maybe a chance shore I mean, it could be, oh, I mean, how do we know? Who's got a famous dad besides licks we've got the GOLIC's. Jack Collins. Worth Oh. Yeah. Lou Chris Collins let's say something bad. Jack Collins worth some head of hair. He's really good at that job. He goes I could stay gold. Eagle Son Walk Me Oh Jack Bob Buster said something about Iverson Kenny Albert, Harry Carey, junior more of Albert's brother.

Local Hour: Life Hack Attack

"So we're gonna get to the point where spo- and another coach is going to be taking off button downs and trading it because everyone is stealing weights thing and trading jerseys last night kyri and wins, lower trading jerseys. Like, I feel like wait has to be looking around. Like, why is everybody doing this? It's an epidemic. It's like you're taking away from the shine of Wade doing it. Well. Did it? I saw Justice run over to kyri, and they were switching jerseys before. And then I saw Wade with the jersey in his hand. And I'm like Justice just cut them in line. And then he switched it. Now has lem gave Horford his. Yeah, hasn't Louis gave Horford his jersey, which doesn't like has them in Horford of the exchange. Anything should be warm ups like game warn warmup. I mean, you don't have to worry about washing the game, worn jersey from UD. What's going on? With you d by the way, I thought we were hundred percent retired and something came up and he's only ninety percent what what has changed in the last few months that he thinks that he has more in the tank. I mean, I know spo- wants him back next year. But I think they just want him back for the SPO wants him back. Yeah. He said that he heard him say last week that he's just like, I'm not gonna talk about it. And at the end of the year, I'll start recruiting them again what the jerseys because I was watching the game yesterday. And my fiance asked me a very important question. I hadn't considered what is Dwayne Wade going to do with all these jerseys because he can't like put them up any. We can't all on a wall a million walls. Yeah. But I am with Billy like there has to be like the low end of this. Like who are the like scary Terry last night like that's gonna end up on his bathroom floor. Right. Yeah. It's gonna. It's gonna. Want the dog with might make a quilt right out of it. But I'm guessing Dwayne Wade has more walls than jurists. He's washing his car. You runs out of town. Give me the Jay Crowder jersey. Yeah. Who's the worst person? Who's Jersey's got and so forth. Gary Terry's, pretty bad. Yeah. Scary Terry's someone's got to be tracking this someone reach out to us with the full list. Yeah. There was. I got I got a partial list from he'd be LeBron James Vince Carter Anthony Davis. Trae young, Bradley Beal. Donovan Mitchell is eight Thomas scary, Terry, that's one Isaiah Thomas. Then he also had at least had a good year. He got Jamal Crawford to you. Got Jae Crowder. Nuts. Jake Crowder is a better player than Terry. Rosie got he gave away his shoes to Kyle Korver now to jersey exchange. Because it was the same game. He can't give away jersey to two people. So you had to give away his shoes. What did corker give him back cares? So you think he's going to just frame all these jerseys? Yeah. Well, I'm sure like he might make a like a big large piece of big large. Art installation of all the jerseys. Eddie got on his hash tag one last stand. We're gonna put that thing. He'd have to have a massive like he's got a fifteen foot all like eight homes. I'm sure you'll find a place. Good like buy a home just for his jersey. Absolutely. Could by the way, Beaufort. Dwayne Wade today your votes count for double. What is that? It's freaky Friday. If so many acquaintances get outta here votes count double today. It's fifty fifty fan and coach voting I think it's fan coach player, so player coaches fifty. So it's twenty five twenty five players votes count as double today to see. That's what I mean. There's just like a square, plus b squared equals all star games. Wayne weight needs to be in the saucer. He's going to be. Joke. Double what it's not a joke, but notes count double Sunday. Okay. Yes. Joe? I understand I understand. But the all star game that exhibition esp-, particularly particularly the NBA all star game is for moments like this. You have Magic Johnson making all star game when he's not even playing it exists. So you could salute these soldiers, I I like to see you whenever never plus riot is layers. Yeah. Man. It's absolutely. Like, Dwayne Wade absolutely deserves this as like a curtain call. He's a former all star game MVP's had obviously several all star games under his belt. This is really cool to see. And as he fan, I like to do players and coaches vote that way because I know fans do like the players and coach well players might. But the coaches aren't going to put the Wayne Wade as an all. Ben Simmons Kemba Walker like Walker deserves to be an also this year. It'll be one. Everyone's in fact, most people are bent out of shape over Dwayne Wade being in over Kemba Walker bent backwards. Do that thing where you lay on your back and like create a bridge. They're bend over backwards over. What did you say? I mean, they're they're just hurt. The butthurt over Kemba Walker not being in the starting lineup. He deserves it more. But no, actually, no it. He doesn't deserve it for more. Twin way deserves to be an all star because of his contributions to the game. He's he's an unbelievable basketball player deserves to have that exhibition Howard captains decided to top vote-getters because they're televising this year. So it's is it the top two vote-getters. Or is it the top vote-getter in each friends? I'm not I'm not entirely. Sure. I'm not sure how it was. I think it's the top two vote-getters. Yeah. Because I think in LeBron with a top two voters Jaanus in LeBron on pace to be at this year. Oh, that's taking that'd be really cool. Lebron better pick toy. Now. He's not going. He's a starter. He would pick them number one. But I want you honestly at the first pick in Janas to pick way. Just celebrate gets mad. But then they this. We always wanted. We always wanted to play one less all star game together. There's definitely we wanted to last time each other one last game one les, Dan. I'm honestly surprised that LeBron hasn't gotten out there and promoted Wade as starter a little upset by like that's coming a little upset. Yeah. Made a little bit. Are you shocked at LeBron's hurt right now? It's so weird. This is Warren to me. I don't even believe it. Honestly, just wanted some time off right? I saw a picture yesterday like him Pelinka and Magic Johnson like in the suite watching the game. And it's just like there's three guys in charge. Just like deciding who's going to be on this team late in the season. Kind of feels a little weird to have LeBron not entitled chasing mode. Right. This is not the NBA that I know this is not the tough out in the playoffs though. Because he man, I don't really think. So I don't how to make them. I don't think they gotta make a move. This is I liked LeBron ring chasing. I like LeBron trying to take down the top team. He doesn't stand a chance doesn't seem that chance. And I know maybe he can beat the war. Maybe maybe maybe anybody can beat the warriors considering that's a total mess, but to come out of the west too. I just it's just a bummer. It's a bummer because we're gonna have an NBA finals without LeBron in it it would appear as of right now. And that's going to be bizarre because he's gonna part of every NBA finals since I'm good with it for a year, though. We've had them like we just get a break from him. You're just hired of Hammy. Well, I certainly didn't want to see Cavs warriors anymore. So the dolphins sold don't have a coach right now. It's now it's Florez. Now, he's like the leader and O'Brien floors and it gets down to restart or Flora's. And I can't is it Ricciardi, Richard. I I hear people say different. I've heard Rashard. Yeah. You don't really hear somebody with the last name of just Richard bright? Have you ever? Usually s Richard really? Or is it Richards is an pitcher Clayton Richard not little Little Richard there. There you go. That's the example of someone's last name being Richard. Leslie, do we still have ROY Mond numerals and rob Ickes leftover from yesterday's day. So. So we do. We also got portal news, more portal news. And I am so into this transfer portal, can I get a log in for the transfer portal. Because the portal does exist, right. And we've we've discovered that there's an actual portal that coaches log into and say, oh, he's available. Yeah. Can I get a log in can somebody like like a Netflix? Password me, there's different versions of it. 'cause Jalen hurts is in the portal, definitely transferring this what's his name tape. Mark mardell from Ohio State. He's in the portal. But he hasn't officially said he's leaving Ohio State teams can talk to him and show their interest. But he hasn't officially said he's leaving transfer portal. You we are we had a horrible recruiting season. Right. But we are killing this transfer portal. Have you seen that bubble? Bolden play by the way, where he jumps over the line on a few kicks the ball to himself and then picks it up and scores a touchdown above a bulletins and absolute freak it looks really illegal that play. But it's very. It's one of those like Under Armour game. It looks like there are no rules that I what was going on at this high school that bubble. Bolden was at because him and Bredon Jordan were high school teammates, and they are freakish athletes is that one of your rob Ickes, Google Google buttonholed hold in blocks field goal. If you haven't seen this play because it's ridiculous. You back. If I watched that highlight see you back excited the last couple of days Billy about Jalen hurts and this Bubba guy. Jalen hurts your small at somebody from Maryland, though, he had followed like three straight people from the university of Miami. And then he just followed somebody from Maryland. Why would he go to Maryland's you come here come here? Just as he could start in. It's a bigger big program. I mean, the path to a conference championship game is a lot easier. Here lose to Clemson again. I don't know. I know but just name another school where he could potentially end up in a conference championship game as a starter. Like, that's what he's looking for. I would guess you guys excited for the Florida game. Get there. What if we get Jalen hurts? Are you excited for the floor? Yeah. We got a receiver from buffalo. Bograd? We need a Osborne. He's actually pretty good. He's actually pretty good. I one of the buffalo quarterback in the transfer portal. But he decided to enter the NFL draft. I I saw buffalo was like. Wow. Someone from the bills. But then I saw I was buffalo grabble joke to terminal. No. I mean, I did because it didn't say university of buffalo buffalo wide receiver J Osborne. Why would someone go from the pros? That's that's why I was like that's cool. That'd be cool. If one team every college team every year got to take a guy a crappy player from the NFL and Adam eligible, do you think Brett farve could tear up college? That's what I mean. Do you think? No. No, no. But specific to Brett farve. Do you think he could tear right now? Right. You really thought someone who's going to transfer from the bills to college. Well, you know, making a joke. If I told you the university of Miami could have Jalen hurts or Brett farve. Who would you take Brett farve Brett farve? Always. Yeah. I mean, I local he'll be right far coming back and playing we win the coastal. With Brett farve Ameri now as our quarterback. Now Marino's maybe two to far removed from playing could probably still sling him in a move around a little bit. I feel like five console move around because he's got those copper like braces and whatnot. You see that commercial with him and Jerry Rice or or they're just armed up in copper? You know, I saw with Jalen hurts someone released like odds on where he's gonna end up. You know, who I was on that list view FAU FAU lane kiffin coach beginning. If he doesn't end up at Miami. He was a favorite. You'd better be the fame. And honestly, I don't remember better be the favourite. He's following me on Twitter media's in what the follow pack. But if you don't end up in Miami if you who. I mean, if he made its FAU he would probably play in the conference championship. That'd be a sad, man. I'm just remembering being on that sideline for that for that bowl game two years ago for FAU those kids look like high school like Jalen hurts after being an Alabama. If you went to FAU just the size of his teammates. He'd be like this is sad. At least Miami players. Look the part. Yes. In the Miami locker room, he'd be like, okay. I'm out of normal. If he was at if they you he'd be like when my back in high school. I bet you his high school team was as good as you mentioned that receiver that obviously been a disastrous off-season Miami loss. Chef Thomas TCU Bo is at the top of the list, really TCU. Jalen hurts Maryland Miami's like fourth. So with Houston so Maryland tie with Houston. He's from the Houston area. Florida's on there. You saw. You saw Dana Hoeger Sens now coaching at Houston. He left West Virginia for the Houston job. He's got a lot of money. I didn't upgrade. He just went. No, it's an upgrade in terms of financials. But that's that's pretty crazy that Dana Holger, some less left West Virginia for that. What what you got strategy food courts with free samples, you guys bourbon chicken, you guys crush it. Make it circuit go round needs. That's what I mean. Like when you go to a mall, like do you like make the lap? Or am I alone that does that he did a lie? Like because I wonder like I have this moral dilemma when I do that. Because I know what I'm going to get, but I'll walk around, and I'll get a little bit of everything, and it's always chicken. So I'll just get all the different chickens. And I know I'm going to get something else. Like, I know. I'm just going to end up like Spar other something and I'm not gonna eat the chicken. But I want the chicken stuff, I usually eat sometimes I don't eat. Sometimes that's my meal. Just two laps the lap. Yay. You can clean up there. Because they'll give you the bourbon chicken, the orange chicken, the smoothie police owes has a couple of couple samples you only take one though, right? Don't take a bunch even if you're a people sometimes when I'm entering the mall because I usually parked by the food court when I'm walking in. Of course, you make a lap. And then when I'm leaving them all going back to my car, if there's other people holding the trays, maybe I'll make a second my favorite part of like the sample getting is when I know I have no intention of actually eating at this place at just want the sample. I take the toothpick, and I stand in front of the person doing it. I'm like, I just sort of put my I'm like, I might be back not gonna have no interest. But if you'll bad like, I don't want the person to think I'm wasting their time. So I go through this whole pomp and circumstance of rubbing my chin flavor. Profile them, all I go to there's a Chick-fil-A which always has like forty people online. And then there's a few places right surrounding it that never have anybody there. And it's sad because those are like family owned places and they're like sweeping and there's no one in their line. And they're. Cleaning and there's like fifty people at chick fillet, and I always feel bad. And sometimes I think should I just do a pity. Like, should I just go over to this? You know sub- cafe that? No one's at in order sub. Or should I wait in this line for chick? Just if you worry when gay. If you worry when gay. Paul which one are you on? On these. They have to have like contract, right? So like, the pizza place has to have a contract like this is the only piece of place, we're going to have right? But they don't have that for chicken because you never see two pizza places because I've always wondered why is it that a Little Caesars doesn't just open up in a mall and sell a full pizza for five bucks. When you're buying a slice of pizza. It's borrows for four bucks and just put spars out of business in the mall. I feel like these big chain do better when they're not in food courts because I've seen plays like taco bells of closed at at food courts like because they don't do as well as they would do if they had their own establishment malls in general are just dying ranks one Amazon little I read an article about malls being repurposes condos all of them. No, no. There are these like white elephant malls that are actually relatively new, and they're just totally retrofitted to be condos and some are still malls. Because there's some source that do good business. But a lot of the stores have been retrofitted as condo. So people live in the mall, and they have the cash registers like in their bedroom. No, they make them. What used to be Victoria secret is now like, I don't know three apartments. Like, Sears Victoria's Secret just prince money, Sears shut down to my mom. Like that would be a dope spot. Yeah. All the condos view their ROY. How many Roman numerals escalator, and you're in you're like condo. Because he used to live. I don't even know that I'd make rooms I think I might just keep it the same layout as a seer. Imagine Dan hasn't escalated in his apartment, ROY how many ROY Mond numerals we have a I I I thought three. Wait, the ones that we left over one through three. That's yesterday. Didn't I say, I remember I say seven I don't think I said for only three or these brand new topics. No three left. I paint the number. If you don't want to honor the original numbers from yesterday. No, no, no. We have reviewed those confusing now. Oh. Escalator? Wise words of Mitch Hedberg if an escalator breaks it just becomes stairs. But you need to escalate here's right, no action. If I'm living by myself, you just change the direction, you know, that you can do that with an easy touch of a button at the setting. I don't just never facture escalators that can only go up now, I know, but feel like escalators break more frequently though, you're more likely to walk up not moving escalator than elevator out of order. TSA by the way, lately because of the government shutdown pain in the butt. I actually have a life Hackensack regarding TSA asleep. One cares. But it's I ROY. So I I that's correct.

But I don't have the heart to kinda go to any of the management there and Radha matter feel bad for him. So my strategy is if I tell enough people perhaps someone we'll go to management and get him kicked up. But now, he's upgraded man. He's got like a little scooter got a basket on it. So now, he just drives around the neighborhood. And I saw him this weekend in half, the loaf of French bread that I gave him a week ago is still there in the basket, but they'll need it. Or this is our show with the stugatz on the ticket. All right. We're going to do the life hack attack. It's back. If you've never heard it before it's a segment where we all give you things you can do in your life that will make everything a little easier. You guys excited about the life that it's been a while. I know it's been a long time. We still haven't gotten around to building a formal open for it all it is. A bed than us. Just going like Huck does for the life. Chuck. Okay. But we need to explain the rules because it's complicated. We haven't done this in a while Billy. What are the rules? All right. Welcome people back to life habitat music. Okay. So this is how life pack attack works. Chris Cody goes around the room, and he has us give him life hacks, which are things that make your life easier. Now, you the listener can participate in the segment if you choose to how ever you're not giving us your life hacks. You're calling in two seven eight six four five six four eight three seven and you get to choose the winner. How do you do that? You ask great question. This is what you do you clap for the life hack, only, clap that you think is best. Now as Chris stated only, clap do not make more noise. We have a noise meter, which tells us who got the loudest noise now, we're asking for only applause, if you make a noise at Thatta, applause, you MU you, hey Siew. Boo you yell. We have your phone number. We have caller ID. Now, you'll be banned for life and that person's life hack will be disqualified seven eight six four five six four three seven if you would like to call in and cheer for your favorite life hat. Man. I just want to applaud you for how efficient you were in explaining that. Especially for Bill. How okay who gets to go first this week? We'll should we wait for calls to gather up. I feel like because wherever it goes. I didn't hear it. I'm never gonna win this game. Do you wanna go time leaderboard, Greg one one? I think I've one two one two despite being an absolute with yours. I've got a gem today. Billy's one one ROY. You're with me where we've never one one winless do have one third place finish. I'm creating proud of that have it on proud display at the house. All right. So we only have we don't have all lines locked in. They also have to agree to the terms of service ghettos, repeat it. Okay. I'll go first as I mentioned in the previous segment TSA entering the country, especially in customs. It's a total disaster. I experienced this recently on my trip to England and back there, fewer employees. You went to England at these stations. Okay. Now, I'm afraid to give you this life hack. Okay. That good because it's that good. And it hurts me if I make your life better because it's going to increase the people in my life. But you know, when you go out of the country, and they give you those cards to fill out, and you have to take that card, and you waited in long lines. You purchased? Yeah. Yeah. Anything to declare and you give that card, and they scan your passport. They ask you a question. And then you go, but it's a super long line. There is this app old mobile passport. Okay. It's absolutely a certified by the government. It's the real deal. You scan your passport, and you answer fewer questions than you would on that index card. It has its own dedicated line. Wow. At the airports. Nobody knows about this thing. I landed last Friday evening because there are fewer workers at customs. It was a two hour wait for people that were filling out these cards own dedicated line for mobile passports. I was in and on fifteen minutes, I save so much time so mobile passports, but don't actually download it and do it because it will make my life harder. Guys. You know, I hate to do this. I hate to interrupt, but you don't we have a celebrity Clapper on hold right now. No way see if you can get through it is just based on the clap. I'm not gonna think he's locked in celebrity clever. Can you clap, please? That sounds like he's all right. Put them back on hold. We have a celebrity clap run attack. First time ever today. I'm going to say, Venus Williams. That's my that'd be one of the two. Okay. All right. So that was my life. Heck who's up next ROY go ahead? Right. But those who still use blenders isn't easy away the clean your blender instead of trying to wipe the blades on a bottom plus some water in some hot water. And then some dish open soap in it. Just turn it on how so this is a life hack for those only with blenders. Yes. You're up neck. All right. You know, how some people have ice makers? Yes. Well, there's people people have ice makers in blenders. Yeah. Well, there's people that don't have ice makers. And if you don't have an ice maker have you ever been in Noida with how long it takes for you to make ice s by putting it in a nice tray and then freezing it. If you go to the store you can buy ice, and you don't need to do that. Wow. About two dollars by a winner. A long time. I don't even want to go. It was like a winner. Can't even get into how rebellious of an act that was. It's not a life hack by is instead of freezing you so. Well, look if you freeze it, you could only do twelve cubes at a time per tray, right? How many cubes do you think coming bag of ice a ten pound bag of ice probably has close to one hundred and forty four cubes if I were to guess at least a hundred forty four cubes by Matt is at least twelve trays of ice always lose this game. I mean, my if I'm using your strategy mind should be if you don't feel like cooking, go to arrest destroy go. Wow. And if you don't feel like waiting at the restaurant some fast food restaurants have drive through oh. All right. So I'll give mine I have a problem with that. By the way, cold. I just put someone on this is I have a minutes removed from you saying I hate interrupting, but here's the problem with drive throughs that I have they seem to take priority over people that go in and order food. I can go into a restaurant or like a coffee place that I'm not going to name or whatever, and I can order, and I'll see ten cars go by the drive through before they pay attention to my order inside the restaurant. Why is that? Why is it a priority? This reminds me what else was talking about before the show. Hey restaurant. Stop telling me. How many calories something is what I'm eating it. People are generally generally lazy and sometimes a drive thru line. You go to a Chick-fil-A. And you're like this is going to take me forever park, your car walk inside place it to go order. You'll get it a lot quick. All right. It's up being so lazy. Yeah. Well, people generally lazy now because delivery services like Uber. Yeah. I don't trust in restaurants. When you're going to put a range of calories. I'm always gonna think it's the small ones. So don't tell me this meals between six hundred twelve hundred calories because the. Is gonna soom. It's six that's quite the variance. Why why do ribs? Have so many calories. Have you ever noticed? How many calories ribs? Hi. I haven't. They always have like fourteen hundred calories or something like rid that seems like awesome. Maybe I know fat on the celebrity you agree that ribs have way too many calories. Definitely Venus me let me give mine real fast. All right. So you know, you have hand soap in your house and your bathroom or your kitchen nothing with the little nozzle that you push down on and you get soap in your hands. You're right. That thing gets once it gets low, isn't it annoying? When you're like, you're doing it. And like, I will leave it there for three months you long Backley. It's like you're still trying to work. You gotta like do fifteen Bush downs before you get a little bit. If there's a life hack in that little gap in between getting a new one don't do it don't say, I know you're going to say, but a little water. Don't you water in there like a third of the way shake it up? And now you got it's a little more liquidity. But it works. It will get you. It will that gap in between when you don't have a new one. It'll it'll fill the time in the top half of your life hacks, which says a lot about it. But it also you've also won this game more than loss. I don't know how I always finish is going to be tough to beat today by ice. I mean, it's a good buy ice. That wasn't exactly what it was was to explain it again. No. Win the rules of the does take a long time to make shut up with everybody doesn't have ice makers, and you can only make twelve cubes at a time on a standard ice tree. Now, if you just go on and you buy ice get it in a third of the time that it would take the freeze ice, and you get at least twelve trays worth of ice was actually help people. This is helping people. This is save. No only help people with blenders and people who travel I feel like someone just put a little water in their soap thing. And now, they're not they don't have an empty soap thing anymore soap water by more still clean, my life hack is by more soap about that. Right. But if like, you said you helped my life back you in the middle of that. You're like, I let it sit there for months because you just don't buy because it's been a terrible round trying to this. We have we have a conundrum here. And I want to know what you guys think of this are celebrity Clack Clapper has a hack bring them up that this person. All right. All right. Give us your life. All right. First thing if you have a refrigerator, why do you need ice maker? I mean, doesn't that keep this stuff go all right done with that? Now under my life back. So I had a week ago. Here. Here are you on speaker Venus? Leave me alone. Ago. Thanks band there with food and there were tongs to get the food. I saw one of my friends reach in and grab some food with his hand and put on his plate. And I came up from like, what are you doing? And then he explained to me. Well, everyone touches the tongs who've been pretty dirty if I just reached in only touch the food that I'm getting that's cleaner. I said your logic. Is sounds there. But it looks disgusting. No, one will stick their grubby hands and a plate of food at my house, Utah gets there and then go wash hands if you must I'm with your friend, hang up, and listen, I'm with your friend, Kim, hang up Venus. We need you to clap. If there's a tray of cookies, I'll just grab the cookie without touching any other cookie. It wasn't this an episode of curb. Yes, exactly, it was man gnome said about Bob I inside. All right. So that was Williams. I don't you just get the pickup tongs, and they use it then. Wow. All right. So let's run through the life hacks, and by sound of applause, applause only. Well, the term in the winter. I went I so I will throw my life hack, which actually is the only one that actually helped people. I think I mean out to the audience, and I will undoubtedly finished last year before we're going further Kinna. The my roll up the window because it's pretty loud. Don't. Yeah. That'll distort our clap ometer. We can all agree. Roy's was terrible. No. We can agree by ice was terrible. It was Roy's again ROY was. Exactly. No one's gonna forget. Well, we'll reset winter. We'll reset all of them. All right for the the voters out there by sound of applause, and applause only. Do you like Mike's by hack, which is download the mobile passport, apps and cut down on your way time customs by almost two hours. Clamper a lot of wind. Pete this game. Now, just remember our sound meter only. Register sounds that was kinda loud wind. So I got zero claps you got a clap and some wind disqualify votes. No, no, no, no, no, no. We won't score. This game. All right now to say say so we can vote. No, you go in order. Okay. Roy what was your life hack attack? My life act can take was if you have a blender, and you need a clean instead of wiping down the bleach hot water, but does dish soap in closed a lid. You had the right down that gym. I did. Disqualified. A club. We didn't ask clouds close the lid because you don't want to splash back on right? You know that this is a time consuming life hack because now I gotta just wash it all over again. Because next time I put something in the blender like ice cream. I don't want to taste the light. So well, you got to rinse it out afterwards. Then they won't teach like all right? If you're voting for Roy's clap now. Hiding a tractor. That's pretty good. Speaking of Joe was a blunder. I'm pretty sure I heard a blunder. Speaking of time consuming. You know, it takes a lot of time waiting for ice to make. And if you don't have an ice maker. You don't have to wait for is to make any more. Just go to the store. Buy a ten pound bag of ice. You have at least twelve to fourteen ice trae cubes made immediately. No waiting clap. Now flat. Off. Try to join me. I don't know if I'm going to be able to beat that. But if you wanna vote for mine, which is when your so Spencer gets low, and you don't have a new one put a little water in their shake it up. You gotta temporary soap clap for me. Now. Second place one with by. We haven't done our mystery Clapper's yet also you combine ROY in Chris's life hacks. No, you can't why not what if you're running out of mindset or just put watering eyes open use that to clean, your blood that by round of applause, which is the life hack. Venus Williams was do not use tongs when at a buffet just grab what you want because tongs filthy and everybody grabs a talks by sound of applause and applause, only, including don't put your damn blender in the sound even communicate work the plazas, not including the guest, right, by sounds applause. No, we can vote now Venus Williams. All right. Sorry, venus. The winner is Billy. Brilliant, my pack of by ice feel like I want. I'm gonna get some ice today. Into sigma. Do chris. Need the count? Here and that was the life attack. I can't believe it that Gerald is presenting the quarterly budget report with finger puppets. Here comes a one point seven percent decrease in fixed overhead. Oh, everybody. No. I can't believe how easy it was to save hundreds of dollars on car insurance. Geico. Projected increase and organic three revenue. Believe it could save you fifteen percents or more on car insurance. Donlevatar toll of Famer Tony Burrows peas in their show. Hall of Famer Andre Dawson does not stugatz. That is the news that I bring you. I'm a journalist disease Dr show with the stugatz on the ticket for a lot of people in this market. Mike after fifteen years doing this. There's an entire generation in there that has grown up with this show. Right. Nineteen to thirty five and the shipping container is proof of it. All you guys grew up with the show and in growing up with the show. We have learned over time that all of this savior shell game that the dolphins play with all of their leadership positions. None of them have worked not even saving somehow. The dolphins are to save in what the Browns are to Bella check somehow. And so now, these names are not in any way exciting. Nobody cares about these names. The names being thrown around of a bunch of candidates. We don't know. Hey, Dallas's defenses. Good. Let's get that guy. That's his name. Yeah. But not the guy that actually runs the entire defense because that'd be Marinelli. And you don't wanna go down that you've seen that? But so what Dan really believed in them at one point. So that's right because I believe in the mall, they believe he had a press conference in which he just said nonstop the merits of getting low. So he was gonna coach getting lower than the win. So if you get lower that should be a top everybody's priority list. I may be confusing him with mardi morning leg. I'm not sure regardless more and more than offense guy that really wanna make sons. What I wanted to ask. You guys though is it wasn't that long ago. In a previous incarnation of the show that what we would be doing right now. Throughout sports radio is go get John Harbaugh. Not Jim you've got the relationship with John Harbaugh. But how much damage is Harbaugh done to that? How much how much stain has he caused that? If they got him now of last year's because he hasn't done anything in that conference. The dolphins. Could do the Kingsbury thing where they're going to get the guy in college you would've loved to have Harbaugh five years ago, but John Harbaugh didn't make the playoffs again this year with a rookie Cordell when I'm saying Stephen Ross is relationship with Michigan. All that stuff. What I'm saying is is that not the savior higher like wouldn't wouldn't the fan base still get sucked into the savior higher? Instead of these names that you don't know you can't possibly have any kind of opinion on these gas Super Bowl winning head coach the dolphins franchises had difficulty in giving people their opportunity at head coaching for the first time you don't wanna first year head coach anymore. Although the leading candidates are. That would be first time head coaches. Yeah. John Harbaugh would certainly be the most exciting name in that. Jim though, what wait you were saying John was thinking. Yeah. Totally do everything. I was actually going to go down this path. John Harbaugh does the he does not only did he say not Jim is not a Super Bowl winning coach. No, John is just said he was talking about Jim not John said, he's a super. But what was most weird was? He was like not Jim John. He said that the other way. Gone tomato tomato. Yeah. That's more like tomato potato interest. Got the last name, right. At least. Yes. Just went Harbaugh. I was I was falling down the path because John Harbaugh very accountable and press conference is the opposite of gays like I'm with you should get John how confused where you when I was like he took a rookie quarterback to the playoffs shifts now, and you're like. It's weird. So who do you want? John. Maybe they can be like a co head coach. That both of inspired that isn't fired gonna show you how to do it by paying extra double extra to grab both Harbaugh's the entire Harbaugh family. Let him work together. The oldest hardball. The day. That's. That's that's playing chess everyone else's played checkers. Are you guys? Sure. That I was talking about John. Yeah. Where's your only? And I was like what about Jimmy? You're like, I'm not talking about Jim. Josh, john. That. Sean Harbaugh was the only thing that was missing from that. Of. What was that? Like, whatever ROY said. From jowls after you finish speaking actual sound. Okay. All right. Well, let me start. And Mike you start as me and ROY UB be my Gelt. Should we can turn up? Never worked. The dolphin. Both. What that never. Here's one. I raised all of you. Definitely not. On the religion chance. You have no. John Hubbard Bubba. Don't even talk for our song. No marker Ernie. I'm Jim the whole time. Sounds like we'll Ferrell's Harry Carey. Sounds like. Hey. This haven't person in his arsenal. Hold on a second. Everybody slowdown. And I think we just discovered something about ROY a hidden talent. Roy can you do impersonations you have characters. I've never heard you. So confidently deliver impersonations the way you have the last couple of days, not really I mean, all bad. I mean, do your hair Carey do it again high of body Harry Carey here live from Wrigley field in the press that no. I don't think it's bad. I don't think it's bad. His godfather somebody told me that his godfather was bad because his Marlon Brando was not bad. But it wasn't. Thank you. I did examine the tape afterwards. I thought we were being well her body. That's better. Wait a minute. Hold on a second. Okay. Let's have a Harry Carey off between Mike, and Chris I don't wanna do this. I don't wanna do. I wanna talk about Jim John Harbaugh or both of them body. Hobhouse off. Well, the have Jim John limited games over. Tom. Grace his base. This is where show gets old by the way, because so many people listening don't have any idea who Harry Carey a really just imitations of. I don't have an actual imitation. I only have imitations of people doing. That's what I'm doing. I will. Now, do very limited Harry Carey for you. That's going to be terrible. But it's in the context of the story. The Wrigley field. Press box is awful like the whole thing. I don't know if they've updated recently, but it's their closets there the bathrooms are small. It's it's out of the nineteen forties. When plumbers were going to work to watch baseball games. Like they haven't changed its dump even though everyone raves about Wrigley field. It's awful concrete awful and boot Shami on a super cold winter winter. You know on the precipice of winter in Chicago. He's in the bathroom, and Harry carrying a very tight bathroom comes up next to him, and in that distinctive voice that I'm not gonna do any Justice right now with my impersonation. So it's so cold in here. This. Cerro. Let me do it. I just paid. No, I'm not gonna lie. It was have expected you to do a John Madden impression. And at the end of the story was just about Ron Santo not air. Anyway, Harry Carey Seddon, whichever. Let's do it this way because my impersonations so bad. I just want you guys to repeat for me in your Harry Carey, I can't do it again because I forgot what ordinarily vulnerable. Yeah. No. It's so cold in here. I can't feel my own bleep is what he said. And in the voice of because he was rummaging around in the front of his pants and he's wearing so much close. So you guys wanna give that a crack? What was the bleep? Just save a one or two. And I can figure it out. It was in the front, and it was the word for that. That would be most jarring. Most most jarring in that circumstance company film. I carry what up to. I would play that game for the end of time pornographic, double entendre, which icago cups. I can't feel my would with a delivery. Who else? Do you want to do that? With you. Turk. Wendell who are some funny? Chicago Cubs names that we can why did one with wood that's going to be pretty hard to top think. Real while Mike. Whenever we played that game. And we say something's going to be too hard to top. Somebody always comes over this going to be like, okay, we're gonna find somebody named with the last name of Cox. And we know how this game goes can be more clever than that like having penis. Really unfortunate didn't get excited about that prospect. Traded Christian yelich, Ken. Excited for what is wait a minute. What is the guy's name is spelled penis. Like penis. No. We can make a why there, but it's it's pronounced penis. No. But I would get excited player. Player to be named later. That's one hell of a prospect right there. Mike your Miami Heat of five hundred again last night, they smoked Celtics Celtics smoke the Pacers at home. Everybody's talking about. Celtics offense is the best that it's been in sports thanksgiving Celtics, offense and Miami smoked them last night. Justice Winslow have you seen this assist turnover ratio career, high eleven assists. Razi twain Wade got stuff in a tank, can I ask you. I want to ask you this question. I wanna ask the audience this question if we had entered this season, and I said to you. Hey, there's a circumstance here where Justice Winslow is going to be getting double digit assists. Would you have been able to see it from the preseason? Like where he would be the guy. I'm not saying that he can't handle the ball. I'm saying trusting him with the ball like that to be at the center of the offense. He was not that offense of player the first two years in the league. He was much more. He was much Rahr than that. I'm not gonna I'm not gonna pretend to be an expert, but I wouldn't have been shocked by it because he was very good at bringing the ball up in initiating, the the problems with Justice or number one the shot and the touch around the rim. But he's got so many things that you could absolutely love especially in today's NBA with that size. I always sort of fantasize about a lineup that was a larger lineup with Justice initiating, the offense obviously a little bit Rohrer and he needed more experience there, but he's blown me away with how good ineffective. He's been at that position. His shot is improved. But it still makes me nervous. Anyone else? Like, he doesn't look what does he at for three? What does he what are you doing? Well, didn't have a pull up jumper yesterday. Didn't pull up three yesterday. That's that shocking. That shocking if he's hidden pull up yes or no audience helped me out here because I thought I saw highlight. But it was out of the corner mind I was far away from the couple of weeks ago. He was shooting a better percentage from three Klay Thompson this year, which is crazy right because it's the opposite like everytime, Klay shoot. You think it's going in Winslow? He shoots it so high you never think it's going in. But it does not your. Justice winslow. Here's actually because my father just started paying attention about when Justice Winslow started playing for. It's shooting. Actually, he's actually doing really well last I checked he was around thirty nine percent. And it's dip a little bit to thirty six. But that's a little dependable would've taken that. If I told you before the season that he would even be this guy that twenty percent one year from three no what what he is in this part because you've got we've been talking about the offensive side. He's been playing because of what he was doing defensively and Mike. In the conference. What stinks is that the bucks? For example, have a bunch of guys who do that on defense? He he really only have one right? The heat injustice. Winslow one of these, you know, just arm spread meet you meet you at the at the half court line. And you're like, oh, this is got some length. This is going to be difficult to do injustice can switch on you can keep up with you. And you can guard at times I've seen guard one through five brilliant defendant, wouldn't Milwaukee has something no one else in the league has because they're not Sampoerna not really not doing that much switching they just evolved game of basketball is evolved and the human beings on the walkie or evolved their length is such that they can cover ground without actually having the switch because they have the longest arms in the league winslow's. The only thing that they have that looks like that is what I'm saying. Even though I know what you're saying his arms aren't he's not six ten like some of the Jones juniors of freak to their Jones junior. You're kind of like a little credit. He's been good, man. He's been playing. Well, I'm not saying that he's I didn't mean it to say that he should be entirely out of the rotation. I was saying your team in order for them to be the kind of better that they wanna be he has to be on the lower end of your rotation. You don't want that dude? Playing thirty minutes last night last night. He's playing thirty minutes and has Saen Whiteside. Your max players playing twenty one. Yeah. Well, things are going bad. And let's not forget that was too long ago for this team, you kinda get defeated by the dare Jones junior experiments but credit to him, and he's another one of the these really good fines, they take somebody else's cast off and they develop them and turn them into a national player. And you can see why he's got plenty to develop just in terms of raw talent, that's crazy athlete and he's starting to learn how to play the game of basketball res- who'd you compare Derek Jones junior to last week the Andre Jordan. Forgot he was one telling you you watch him near the rim going to go go. Gadget arm. He has the same thing. Okay. But from this for three point line. So they're going to give them a max deal now to they won't be able to move them. Billy. Where's your following trends cynical? Billy. Haven't since you're wonderful. Larry carry in person.

Second i can segment today is a little unusual back in the day. Harry carey was a regular guest and harry would run a little segment called the more segment briefer are all longtime sponsor of the show fred bernardo call dead. Harry answered the phone. It's just a little bit of radio. Gold hope you enjoy enjoy it. As much as i did. Here we go. Here's brad garret and greg from january. The eighteenth twenty eleven joining me. Now is someone who has a very interesting product for your grill. He's here to talk about tonight. Let's go ahead and race. <hes> as i say race over the hotline and bring up the president and owner of grill great dot com grandparent's joining us here on for brad. How are you buddy. Well greg. How are you tonight. I'm doing absolutely fabulous. Brad and i appreciate you joining me from the road <hes> just so the central light yeah no that's kind of what we're hearing in the background but definitely wanted to get this done after last week's internet debacle which we can never count on but when you're doing internet radio and you don't have the internet. You're kind of in a bad situation so i appreciate your time out for me tonight. <hes> for the people for the people who don't know your brand and before we get into the product maybe a little brief background about yourself self and has grilling kind of always been a passion of yours. Yes it has i. I've always been a griller. I've enroll in thirty years but i have to admit i am new due to the grill industry. I'm a marketing guy. I'm a product guy. <hes> i've done some other new products in the past so this no this kind of brought me into the grilling industry and i gotta tell you after being in a lot of other businesses. There's nothing like the real. Business is a fabulous industry bradberry joining us here on the show so let's go ahead and talk about grill great dot com bread. Is this product something that you created. Have you taken it on as you said. You're a marketing guy and wanted to run with it. How does it kinda come to be. I said i've been new product development. I was working on a variety of things working for a fairly large firm. This design was in there. He bought a company and i was looking looking for new products and other things and this this is sitting on the shelf. It was designed. Originally for electric grill didn't have the holes in it didn't have quite the same designed and have the handle handle of the tool so but they fell a set. You know you ought to try this on your grill. It works marvelous so i took it home played around with it on my grill and fell in love with it but it didn't fit this fella's mixed but i couldn't go so eventually acquired the rights and he helped start the business and off. I went if you haven't seen it by the way go head on over to the website grill great dot com so is it possible brad for you to kind of paint say mental picture you know what are the key benefits and are these for the folks that are listening tonight that wonder why they would want to add this to an existing grill drake kind of give us some of the unique selling features in european sure well you gotta gotta start start off with. What does the girl do really right now. The great has been probably the least innovated part of a grill lotta times on the fuel source in the variety of configurations but the great itself is just a platform to hold food. <hes> the more i dug into this product i realized how added if it was and how it actually grills the better it makes it easier to do it makes it easier to do certain types of things with your grill so it's really a whole different design that it quite frankly does a whole lot better job and laying hang on top is kind of a plus because there's a lot of other grew a lot of girls out there so it's sort of a way to turbocharged your real just by upgrading your great so to speak so how does it work exactly. You're putting it on your existing grill great but what makes it unique in your estimation from using just regular grill great very fair question <hes> <hes> really think about first of all it's three dimensional so if you take a cross section of the thing that sits about an inch and a half almost an inch high and just got raised rails. It's big ribs that sit over a valley of whole so there's there's a top and a bottom to the top was what foods it's on the rail but the bottom of valleys <hes> kind of provides some protection from below but it also was where things fizzles the juices just don't triple way into the firepit dripped down into the plate and they actually steam and sizzle oh back into the food so it it's a three dimensional cross section that sears on the top and sizzles and steams down below so it really does. There's quite a bit more than your average. Great red barrett joining us here on the show. Grilled rate is his product in grill great. Dot com is the website site bread. I would imagine <hes> at least when i heard of the idea and actually got around to looking at it. I immediately thought a gas grill for sure. Is this something that can also go on a charcoal tolbert absolutely in fact really all the development work. I did was on weber. I'd burned up for over a year. <hes> fooling around with this product <hes> it gave me a lot more confidence to be more aggressive with the grill. I do less indirect grilling so from a coal standpoint it's fabulous in fact a lot of our customers of these big big companies who use these catering grills and a lot of mature coal and they run so they're you know they're not that easy to manage especially in open air environments and the grades provided a a whole level of protection against flare up and a lot more uniformity in terms of <hes> you know he control as well great for charcoal back. Ah you know the ultimate testimony i guess greg we've been very successful with the green egg and a lot of the other ceramic cookers <hes> you know and our great system has been widely accepted by you know that gang and you know how rabbit they are so absolutely. I mean you'd mention caterers. Is this something that you could see also going into to some higher end steakhouses or just restaurant in general the food service industry absolutely. I wish i had four hands right now. Yes i mean we the restaurant. Mark is one of the over the hill markets <hes>. We are in the handful of barbecue restaurants because there's overlap. You'll have to see a lot of these. Teams have their own restaurants and catering businesses so that's kind of where we're going but we've got some. You know some five-star chefs. I've got a guy ruling folk row on it out in the desert in california so the restaurant market it is there. It's just not there this year really for us. So what's the product made out of breath good question. It's really kind of bucking a trend here. It's an aluminum product. It's hard to analyze so we're gonna military hard code once the product has been made. It's but the aluminum is a much more conductive alloy granted. It's more expensive and that's why you don't see it on grills. More often use mostly just see cast iron. Maybe a porcelain coding so really to protect against rust but <hes> the the aluminum is extraordinarily more conducted more unifying and heat in fact you know he thinks in traditional engine other kinds of you know equipment are made out of aluminum and look fairly similar to our time they actually telegraph and transmit being much better so it's the hard analyzed aluminum and we are talking with the bradberry from grade dot com by the way is the website. If you wanna check out <hes> let me see here brandt now life the life expectancy and maintenance. If you get a pair or you get three or four whatever the case may be for your particular cooker what needs to be done anything prior and then of course after after cooks and to keep these things nice and hold up to par good question actually maintenance is less is more in the beginning because they'll season like a cast landscaping so i really try to tell folks to let them let them black and brown in overtime notice that they brush is easily clean on the rails so the rest of the gray will be kind of black and seared itself in <hes>. They'll last a lifetime. They'll probably lasts longer than your drill. They won't rust and they the heart analyzing thing is makes the surface twice as hard as stainless steel so they're hard to scratch. <hes> you know we've had them in restaurants. Going seven twelve ars shifts and daily and working just great so i think that there's longevity of them is going to be <hes> surprising to people. I've had several sets on my grill now for over two years and i'm using them three or four times a week. I i clean them once in a while in the sink but there's very very little care other than just brushing them during warm up. Do you need to use a special kind of brusher. Can you get after it with a stainless steel or brass brush. It doesn't matter really any brush. Even those girl pads you know with the plastic candles work pretty darn well. I should also point out that tool of the forefingers spatula also really doubles as a shovel device so as you get debris building up in the valleys down in the bottom of our art grace all you do is just shovel it out by pushing that tool down the valley so you can keep the bottoms clean with four finger tool <hes> because you'll build up some debris especially if you do a whole bunch of to get some filled up a degree so you can just push. You're right out with the tools to put in your request for a future show. Please contact john solberg solberg by email at john j. o. n. at the b._b._q. Central show dot com. That's right.

7-30-2020 Sports Talk

"And. The following takes place between seven PM and eight PM. Here we go. Seven ten, seven, hundred wwl. W. Welcome to sportstalk. I had my hat on earlier by inside Bichat I. was preparing for my extra innings. Had I've changed again we've got sportstalk until nine o'clock. Tonight I'm GonNa hit the button I'm gonNA open up the lines at five one, three, seven, four, nine, seven, thousand, one, eight, hundred, the big one, pound seven, hundred odd at and T. here is your schedule schedule your lineup please Lance McAlister sportstalk until nine o'clock Gary Jeff. Walker the nightcap nine to midnight midnight. We have time tonight talk reds, baseball I honestly I have no idea what all that was about that game could have been canceled at seven o'clock this morning I I have no I. Don't know I mean there's no, there's no fan element. There's no worry about fans and get into the ballpark and and maybe get some concessions and hang out and try to make it work. They're no fans to worry about both teams have to get out of town. I guarantee you the reds would much rather be sitting in their hotel in Detroit and I, know the cubs would much rather be sitting at their homes in Chicago I have no idea why waited till now They were never going to play a baseball game tonight I mean to me the untrained meteorologist looking at the weather this morning I said not playing baseball tonight and it is now official on there is no baseball but it's time for you and me we together to discuss the reds I have a question to begin the night. Here's the question. I know how you felt last Friday night. Last Friday after the reds won their opener everything went right I mean it was pitching. Defense and it was hitting in everything was clicking guys coming off the bench shogo with his first hit than a tremendous defensive play Travis Jankowski off the bench pinch runner. He steals a busy scores a run everything that could have gone right went right in man. You felt after that game holy cow, this is going to be awesome. And then for four days, you watched in frustration as the reds bullpen. Couldn't do the job for the most part the red starting pitching was excellent. There were questions about strategies involved. Then there came the news on Sunday that the reds were without Mike Moose. Dhaka's Nixon Zell with no real working understanding of what that might mean or how long they might be out as it turns out they missed three games during all that the reds lost one and then a second and then third and. Then a fourth and suddenly all the hype and all the buildup after all things we in waited for the red set at one in four, and we talked about man every game worth two point seven, and this is about a sense of urgency in. It's now a sprint. No longer marathon you can't afford a slow start. They started one eight last year they started three and eighteen two years ago. This is jess devastating. and. Then last night. They got their guys back. Mike Mustafa's came back Nixon came back Tucker. Barnhart made his twenty twenty debut and you saw what the reds look like and it's funny because last night on Kelsey Chevrolet. Extra innings. We we. We joked the classic Dennis Green Line, they are who we thought they were. And the reds looked like felt like a real legitimate threat in the National League. Central. Division. We are now six games into this I'd like to do a status check and I have every single line open with this question. Now. How do you feel? Because that's been quite a a wave six of sixty in the books the high up to the top and riding roller coaster the drop the plunge for four games, and now going back up in feeling good. Articulated if you could, what do you make of the first six because by the time, we talk about a reds game tomorrow night, we'll be one week into the season and that's a different week on a different timetable there were used to in the major league baseball season because it's no longer one, sixty, two, it's sixty and when you put six in the books. There's a greater significance and yet we've been given a lot of evidence to this point that sort through you looked at one way on. Friday night. Then you looked at it for four days of throwing papers up in the air terron things up and wanting to trade guys at fire guys and get rid of this guy, and then last night everybody thought Whoa that's what I'm talking about. When they led nine and nothing and yet inside of it is I set up these six days inside of just a game. Last night, we had the emotion of to nothing lead early moves back Moose on the loose, and then it was nine another. This is GonNa be awesome and then the bullpen like what is going on and like out a little bit dicey. And then the reds answer with a couple of more runs and they finished things off. So. Think of that range of motion. Think of that gathering of information over six games and let's talk about how we feel now. Because they're back at full strength, they are at least offensively they are whole right now and with their guys back. Do you notice what David Bell did with the lineup tonight. It's the same one as last night. Because cells. And move stock is his back and burn hurts here there's no mixing and matching with three guys out of the starting line up with bench guys. So, what do we think? I think that's our starting point. Tonight we're roll till nine. Before we're done, you're going to hear from sunny grain what he said last night. Oh I love it. I. Loved it. I loved it loved it. You're going to hear it. I WanNa get into something baseball wise I have never brought up as a topic on this show for a couple of very good reasons but there is there is such intrigue behind it I'm going to ask the question. And we'll see what we can make out of this journey until nine when we hand things to Gary, Jeff Walker and the NIGHTCAP. It's sports talk on seven hundred WWL W. Seven twenty two, seven, hundred, wwl W. A. It's me your say what's going on here? No baseball tonight it's been canceled. So it's an impromptu, a sportstalk carrier sportstalk presented by Kelsey, Chevrolet will do it till nine Gary Jeff. Walker, nine to midnight by the way the the highlight of the rain delay other than listening to the cowboy in Tommy Thrall with. The twitter version of the banana boat that was great stuff. The other highlight was Anthony Rizzo's back and forth with the reds over the wait to cancel the Game Anthony Rizzo at five thirty tweeted to the reds of the following and a graphic of the radar in in the Greater Cincinnati area at five thirty with a big giant yellow blob over the city and he tweeted, Hey, reds Wendy I think the window is asking for some friends maybe check at Home Depot for one obviously meeting. When do you think the window to play a game is? Asking for some friends that twenty nine other players sitting around waiting and the the the Nice. Day, maybe check at Home Depot for a window. And then the reds. As much as Anthony Rizzo throw shade at the reds the reds clapback. And this was good. Reds about an hour later. With this tweet, Anthony Rizzo. Found one. It's a picture of Sonny Gray holding a sign. And it's a picture of a window. And Sunny is pointing at the window. For Anthony Rizzo. Hey. Reds Wha. When do you think the window is? To set a gray on. The. Face and the picture they found to photoshop into it of a window bound. One was fantastic. Rest assured of this, both the reds and cubs players would have been it would rather been anywhere but sitting around all day waiting for a game that was never going to be played cubs could have been home and the reds could have been in Detroit in their hotels. Let's go to the phones five, one, three, seven, four, nine, seven, thousand, one, eight, hundred. Pounds seven hundred dollars at and T. Milford Wego Jerry welcome to sportstalk Hey guys with you tell me. Well I'm having a problem with the head coaching right now just because what sport? What sport are we talking? We're talking baseball. Manager. That man is okay. Here's a here's the problem you've got starting pitching that his pitching out of this world. And they're pitching shutout in the day and they in a yanking yet, jerry you hear what Sunny said after the game what he said David came out to the mound and gave him a choice and sunny gave him the ball and sunny said afterwards he's getting closer but he's not good enough to throw over one hundred pictures right now he's still building up from the shorten camp of three weeks. Okay. You know what? Then I stand corrected because the whole point was when a pictures on and they're in that zone. And he's pitchers right now have been absolutely there, and then our relief is been coming in and getting crushed and it's just sickening when you think wait a minute what are we pulling these guys but now? You got the short season too. So it's not like we've got a lot of time to play with and he. Jerry slow down a little bit. You just made the point because it is a short season and they had a short three weeks to get ready for it. So that's why sunny said he's not ready to throw one hundred pitches right now but these pictures have been pitching. For a lot longer than the position players have been and they should be in shape you know and I do to Jerry, would you what would you like to happen if how would you have played it out at David went to the mound last night said it's up to you and sunny gave him the ball and Sunday after the game said I don't feel like I'm ready for one hundred or more pitches I'm still building up what is the? What's the debate now? But. There is no debate to that. There's nothing you can do a back I gotcha I agree with that. But I'm I'm not gonNA dispute that yes. Last night. But what about the other pitchers because I'm sure. They, felt. Okay sure that they probably felt the same way because they had three weeks to get ready. One, how they had a lot more they've been pitching since March I mean these guys have been working with the catchers their arms should be their arms should be fine right now it's the position players that that should. Okay. So so again, Jerry before before I, let you run then you said they should be ready. What would you tell sonny great because it sounds like you think sunny should be ready and he's not bright. That's maybe that's. The problem at this point. I got you. I'd certainly appreciate your chicken how about Sil Phony Kevin we're going to sportstalk. Hanging out with. I'm well, how about you? I'm very had a good day today little wet but not bad got a couple of things and then I'm GonNa, just hang up and listen to. Me about it First of all, our our head coach manager. Manager. Right. I think people need to give them a break. The reds invested a lot of money into the system and the analytics and the coaching staff, and you know this stuff's not going to evolve overnight. But Case in point last night this stuff does work winker hit right into the the ship last night in one that The other is I WanNa talk about nailing. Well I do not I. Thank you for calling. But as we as we said last week, this station's On for twenty four hours a day in. This is the only three hour slot that is for sports conversation, and in this case, reds conversation and I certainly appreciate that everybody has a very passionate reaction one way or another it how they are going to receive what happened. Ten days or so ago with the kneeling but that is right up the alley of Mike McConnell and and Willie and most of the twenty four hours that are left in the broadcast day but I get the slice of the pie that's three hours for the sports. So we talk sports during that three hours of the the slice of the Pie that I get. We'll pick up will pick up Robin will pick up you and I've got lines open at five, one, three, seven, four, nine, seven, thousand, one, eight, hundred, and pound seven, hundred on at and T. let's go to Charleston South Carolina Hello Rob. Hey Lance. I wanted to to to point out that like I think eventually, we're going to look back on after we lost the fourth game. Nick Cassiano like went off on on like with the attitude, right like our major league. Baseball. Protocol, he dropped the F bomb. Basically revealed to like all of us that Mushtaq Stockists Ten del were tested negative. I don't think he was supposed to do that. And and I just feel like. And then the next day you know pet the on US and tim they'll win. They're appealing if major league baseball and then they go and you know they they're in the lineup the next night and we scored twelve runs I mean I just think that attitude is something that like we've been missing for years and I love the casinos does. Not. I would agree and I will add and I'm gonNA play it in the next segment. What Sunny said prior to the game yesterday where he basically now clean it up he he said last night after the game he told the players prior to the game they needed to come out with a little more fire a little more energy and in his words a little more give up blank in this game and he said, let's go and it was It I think batting combination shows you a where the internal conversations are between the players and and how they went through a lot of adversity. They went through three days without their guys wondering are they positive or negative? Is a mean we're going to be positive or negative, and in through all of that maybe even a little bit of feeling sorry for themselves and finally they kind of said going into yesterday you know what? Screw we got baseball games the way and they went out one baseball game I. Love that. Yeah. I agree but it's great to have you guys like stock s in Cassette Kathy on and not certainly great taking a leadership role and this we need that fire missing it for a number of years. Hey, I enjoyed this call again some time. Yeah. Thank you. Okay. Thank you. When we come back what Sunny Gray said, what he said about the conversation with David Bell when he came out on the seventh inning, what he said to the team prior to the game and what he said, Anthony Rizzo during the game, all of that as we roll on a, it's a bonus edition and impromptu edition of the carrier sportstalk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet on seven hundred wwl. Come out with a little more fire and a little more energy and more just a little more given at in this game and. That was my whole thing. Tonight. It was just I was just on the boys that was saying. We're come into play today like let's go. Let's go play a baseball game. Let's. Let's Go win a baseball game and. And that was it other everything else was kind of. You know. It was just that was just my whole that was just my whole kind of my thing. We're here to play. We're here to play today in Will we need to come out with a little more fire a little more energy and a little more give a four letter word starting with an S. ending in T. In this game. Sonny Gray and then he followed up with and I mentioned the adversity keep in mind this team would have been without newstalk and Sincil, for three days. With uncertainty of the testing they'd been without Tucker Barnard on paternity leave they dropped four straight. Sunny on the adversity this team had been facing. I just feel like we've had a couple of tough games. We've had a couple of tough things not go our way and I just wanted to today just needed to be about. We need to put all everything else that we got going on whether it's not having guys losing close games whatever it is. It's a relevant when we step on that field tonight and and that was it just just intent intensity competitiveness like we're here to play game today and that was. I don't know if you've noticed or not. But in the first inning last night. Anthony Rizzo leaned into or. At. Or didn't try to get out of a pitch that that barely click now when they're dietrich did that we love Derek Dietrich and when Rizzo does it, we don't like Anthony Rizzo 'cause he's on the opposing team I get it but at the end of the inning There was an exchange sunny gray as he was walking off had an exchange with Anthony. Rizzo Sunny was asked after the game about that between gray and Rizzo. I think that was just some competitors just competing but yes, I definitely wanted to. Definitely wanted to try to ignite something. You know let's let's I definitely. I wanted everybody know. That we're here to play tonight We're not going to sit back and just and just get our butts kicked. We're we're here to play I. I like that. A lot back. Let me give you two more in. This was a subject of much debate sunny was in the sixth had two outs and went into that inning with a really comfortable lead at nine to nothing if you remember he walked the leadoff hitter to begin that eating. Eighty eight who swore has made an error on a poor throw sunny then got a strikeout later in the inning would have been that final out of the inning and he would have been done. But the swears air opened up the door and kept things going well, David Bell walked out to the mound. And made a pitching change at that point. But Sunny was asked after the game about what was said on the mound when David reached the top of the mound with with Tucker was sunny. He asked me how it was doing if I if I could've kept going it was that was one of those decisions that. I gave I. gave him the ball and. In turn it over to the bullpen, but he was it was he was leaving the option open for me there. Sunny went on to talk about the difficulties of a short in summer camp. Regular spring training is six weeks. You Play twenty-seven Exhibition Games they'd been at home in quarantine doing they're throwing at at a college or out of their garage or in their backyard but not at the point where you'd normally would be for pitchers around Major League, baseball of being ramped up physically an from an arm strength standpoint and sunny addressed that last night. And I think we're almost there to just leashes be open and go out there and and throw but it is also something that you have to. It is a little closely monitored because it has it was very you can get ready, but it's still very quick getting to ninety one hundred pitches and I feel like I'm almost there to just to just to just go almost they're not there yet getting closer and let's remember we're a weekend of the season in two fifths of the reds. Rotation is gone on the injured list now, Anthony Sclafani was on the injured list Wade Miley. Now goes on the injured list look around Major League baseball starting pitchers, relief pitchers, They're having troubles because they're camp short they're not fully ramped up physically legs John Lester left a five inning shutout in a no hitter the other night after seventy five pitches because he said his legs were wobbling he's not fully there yet the other Guy Tyler glass now of the Tampa Bay rays. Left a game after four innings struck at nine and allowed one hit in his manager said arm strength. Wise. He was only build up to about seventy five to eighty five inches and they took him out of the reds have been and I give them credit for the call earlier criticized sunny for not being able to throw more I give the reds credit the way sunny in the way guys like bowring casteel have approached the offseason they are ahead of the game, those three have thrown. More pitches than most pitchers in baseball right now, the average starting pitcher has only been able to hang around and throw about seventy three pitches in a start the reds top three or throwing closer to ninety five pitches a game because they've worked their way to that through their lead up of three weeks and a now but they're not quite ready to be unleashed as sunny. Said, you know trevor got up to one hundred and five, and that's about as far as he can go right now. Next time out a little bit more next time out a little bit more. But let me state this on sunny. And I mentioned this last night. Sunny Gray for what he is doing for this team and I don't like talking about baseball and salaries but it's hard not to with sonny gray based on the Bergen he is. The reds are paying sunny gray ten million dollars this year. They pay him ten million next year. Ten million, the following year. And if they'd like to pick up his option in twenty, twenty three, they'll pay him twelve million dollars. Let me give you a little bit of perspective on what that means. The reds get Sonny Gray for three years. Costing. Them thirty, million? The Washington nationals, Max Scherzer thirty. Million a season. Houston now obviously pro rated numbers this year because of covid nineteen. But Zach. Earns thirty, five, million a year for the Astros Stephen Strasburg thirty, four, million a year Justin verlander thirty-three million a year David price thirty, two, million a year Clayton kershaw thirty, two, million a year. Chris Sale thirty million. Jacob degrom twenty five, Million Justin Zimmerman is making twenty, five, million a year. Sunny Grays making ten. How good is that deal look? In fact. Danny. Duffy makes fifteen million Mike League God bless Michalik I'm a big Mike Guy he's making fifteen. Tyler. Chat would've cubs makes thirteen. Roark with the Blue Jays makes twelve. The reds are getting sunny gray for ten million. For three years? You could get three years of sunny at one year of Kershaw, price burr under Strasbourg cranky shirts or Garrett Cole. Let that sink in for a second and that's not even getting into the value they're getting out of waiting whereas on his contract. Think about homer Bailey. All there are some contracts that make you WANNA curl up in the fetal position. But think of what has unfolded in how those dominos have fallen sunny grade. The Yankees didn't want sunny gray. They didn't even have a spot for him in the rotation he was he was bad and they say, we know to do with him. They took him out of the rotation and eventually they basically who wants Sonny Gray Redskin we'll take sunny gray. We'll take him. We'll pairing with Derek, Johnson his college pitching coach. We'll get uncomfortable. We'll get his confidence back Sonny Gray. Right now is the forty fourth highest paid pitcher in Major League Baseball. Forty fourth. In over the last year, his earned run average is about one seven nine. Big Sunny, Greg Guy Fun he he was I tweeted a couple of I tweeted a picture of a of a Bob Ross the painter because sunny was painting last night and I had video of a car dealer shuffling because he was delighted, he's just a joy to watch the the combination of bulldog the competitor, the the way he said the same thing about. Trevor Bauer on Sunday because Trevor Attacks Game. From such A. There's the the rawness of the emotion of Trevor Bauer. There's the science of Trevor Bauer and when you watch Trevor Pitch, it's like he is methodically working through a lineup and at the same time doing with a vengeance in that can be tough too because that's crossover of emotions the emotion it'd be just want to scream when you strike somebody out on a pitch you blown away and yet the inner workings the that the wheels turning your head of of your scouting report in all the work he puts into. Everything the breakdown of the pitch, the arm angle, the analytic. When that is flowing, I said, last night I think in the first six games of the season the most significant thing that has come out of the reds I six games. Ever Bachelor was dominant. Two years ago Trevor Bauer was dominant last year with the Indians was pretty good with the reds. He was pretty bad if trevor bowers dominant. I said it last night. I'll say it again tonight the Reggie going to be handful in the national league central your calls as we continue. Dale and Luke and sue and Tyler Zach all thoughts and contributions to make I.

Twenty two and a half million for homer. Bailey last year. That's two seasons of Sunny. Gray. Oh, Bob Nightingale the enquirer tweeting out the reds rotation they have said it with the rain out tonight they are. They'll push Bauer one day.

Hey. Dale. You tell me thanks for calling. Freddie gray is a bargain. He. In nineteen seventy, nine, Nolan Ryan was your first million dollar pitcher million I mean what a deal? Have a changed. Yeah, they have a little bit I wanted to talk to you about Joey Bado. I wanted your opinion on it. Just like the other night I'm watching the game and swear as GotTa. Swear as GotTa Hit, and he could have easily went i. it's hard and because the throw came in missed the cut off and Joey sitting there at second base. And there's one out and it's just for one thing I think that base running. I think they should make airs for base running 'cause I just see it over and over again baseball not played. It it's not play the right way you. Should be on third base. Suarez should be on second worked out because the next guy walked time and time again you see it not work out like last season and they don't score because Joey doesn't get the next. The next guy gets hit Angeli only gets the per based etcetera. I? Just wanted your opinion. Do you think they'll ever put him in the six whole? You meet, you mean moving down to six in the batting order. 'cause you're, GonNa see more pitches. I mean when I mean, what's what's wrong with the is he seeing what he's doing with them right now he's doing fine toy games in the theater, but I just see him I- ground's out and talk a lot of plays he's going on what used to. No no way you're getting all revved up here for one. He's he I think most people like to focus on power time for the tight for the team lead in home runs, and he's getting on base forty-three percent of the time. Why would you want him batting fewer time? Why would you move him down on the order if he's getting on base? In why wouldn't you just keep him at at second getting on base with with sugar in front of him I understand that but I mean, what will we be taught? Will we be saying the same thing thirty games ended that the season? Well, I don't I mean we're only why are we going thirty games? Why aren't we going right now in what's happening? or I mean it sounds like you wanna I'm confused sounds like you want to punish him for something. I. Well, you know I I can foresee what's what's GonNa Happen to. Just. So I'm clear. You're telling me despite the fact that Joey veto this season sitting three hundred tied for the team lead in homers getting on base forty-three percent of the time you are now looking into the future and projecting he's not going to do well. So you. WanNa punish him by dropping him down to sixth in the batting order. Is that sum it up? I. Don't think it's punishing. She'll do well on the sixth hole. I. Think. You'll see. What how? About how about this? How about you just leave him where he is well, he's doing well rather than moving because you're predicting he's going to do poorly. Patrick. Exactly. What I'm saying to you and if he does start doing poorly, do you think that they will weren't him down in six whole I? Honestly I'm more concerned about the next game. Then what might happen in the future I? Just I don't have I don't have analysis for that because I'm not ready to predict it's going to happen. You sound excited to predict it. That's going to happen or at least begin to prepare for it. I'd rather just watch what he's doing right now. Well I definitely agree with you. I'd leave him in there right now. But if it happened, that's what I wanted. Your opinion I wanted to see you think if he well, let's do this. You call me back in thirty games and we'll assess where he is. How about that? Okay. Can I ask you. Wish you could. But I'm out of time I gotTa Check News. Thank you for calling I I'm almost a minute late. At one hour to go. I feel good about the next hour. I feel better about it than the past hour on the home of the reds are no cure sportstalk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet Seven, hundred WWL W. Following takes place between eight PM nine PM. Sarah. Let's keep rolling eight hundred eight. Make it officially eight Oh, nine on the nose on seven hundred wwl w. this would be the carrier sportstalk presented by Kelsey. Chevrolet Arnelle Carriers Global Transportation Provider visit our LLC DOT COM Kelsey Chevrolet they're open for sales and service bonus edition of sports talk tonight should be reds baseball but there was rain and then the game was canceled and the rights are headed to. Detroit. They opened up. A series tomorrow night, the cubs they're headed back home no word on a makeup date i. believe there's at least one mutual off day but I also know the cubs are coming back here on August Twenty Third Twenty Eight, twenty, nine, thirty, eight, Friday Saturday. Sunday will see a potential double header and that leads me to a topic. We can add to the mix in this hour Jeff Passan of ESPN reports that we have a deal. Major League Baseball and the Players Association have agreed to stage seven inning doubleheaders starting this weekend. sources familiar with the situation tell ESPN seven inning doubleheaders. He goes on to report with a number of doubleheaders expected to take place on account of rescheduled games due to the current potential corona virus outbreaks, as well as weather related postponements like tonight shortening games to seven innings was a compromise that came together quickly. Obviously, the concern would be pitchers the wear and tear. You. Look at it this way you're not. going. To seven you're going from. Things to fourteen minutes I mean who wants to play eighteen innings in one day what purpose is served in these statistics for twenty twenty specifically don't get all bent out of shape for a change. They're ruining the game of baseball back in the day when Willie mays turned and ran at the Polo grounds and caught the ball over his shoulder and men were men and they took the ball every four days and they threw three hundred twelve innings they play doubleheaders and they played a lot of them. Well, this is twenty twenty and we're in the middle of a pandemic. So they're gonNA play doubleheaders at seven innings for the two games each game. Find by me. I guess my question I would assume this would be well one that's good for the reds because now they have to go seven innings that that by the time their first double header comes up you probably are looking at their starting pitchers able to throw seventy nine complete games. So I am all for in fact, if I could open up a can of worms, we've done this as the topic before. I would be fine if major league baseball just went to seven innings forever game and it was done with it but I'm not making that a topic tonight because it's already feels like full moon tonight and people have lost their mind. So we'll do that another day. But for the moment doubleheaders, this year will be seven innings I would assume total otherwise that beginning with the eighth, the runner would start on second base. And that would be the logical conclusion I would draw. That's the way it is right now when you go to the first extra inning, the runner starts on second base I would assume now the runner goes to second base to begin the eighth inning but seven inning doubleheaders. Now, official Per Jeff Passan of ESPN, the agreement reached between baseball and the players association all right Well, we could talk on that as well. Five, one, three, seven, four, nine, seven, thousand, one, eight, hundred, the big one and pound seven, hundred at and T. Gary Jeff Walker's in tonight. In you talk about a programming change from inside pitch reds game to extra innings to inside Pitch Rain Delay Sportstalk and. The nightcap with Gary Jeff. Walker. All right. Let's go to the phones and we begin here. Jack Welcome is sports talk calar. Yeah. You're talking to you my breaking up. Can you hear me a whole sending loud and clear? Seriously I'm standing in the rain you're good. Be careful. Looks like it looks like. This is going to be. The reds offense, which last year a little over four game that did. On base percentage a little over three hundred. Yearly enough. They have got to improve run production seven, eight, nine innings this year. forty percent of their last Lamy one losses one run. Sixty percent one and two runs. Up The relief pitching better, it'll offset the improved offense of the late INEX-. Yeah. That's a really good point and you wonder how much wiggle room they have for if the improvement isn't going to come within where does it come from because obviously the there is a trade deadline at the end of August but these are different times and the economics are different and I don't know if there is help to be found from the outside. You're exactly right to it lends in glazed. Get figured out Joe Goes Zell they activity important place centers this change and not rely on home runs for virtually all of its run-production. To they, they have a tendency to. They've had trouble for the longest time string together at ending that classic keep the line moving where your words a single and it's a it's a hit run. It's the double in the gap and all all of a sudden the lights turn it over. It's more of maybe get a guy on and let's try to hit the long ball. That's it is. It's not as them. It's kind of baseball today I'd be interested in knowing what percentage of Major League baseball results over the last several years have been decided by Iran or two runs. It's a loftier percentage like think and the reds can't played in a bunch of those in the last ninety games they. Win Got Jack I'm declaring you might call of the night and you are welcome to call anytime. All right. In in fact. Welcome you to call multiple times a show at this rate. So feel free to call soon. All right. All right take care I don't think I'm being sarcastic facetious about that. He is right on the bullpen Clearly it's gotta get better. I. Look at this white what they have to work with. You're David Bell who do you feel comfortable going to right now in a game you lead. A one two three run game. A Beyond let's go Amir Garrett. And who let's let's maybe reach a little bit and say Lucas Sims out on a limb. If if Nate Jones is healthy, I'm comfortable with nate because nate's veteran he's been there done that he's pitched in pressure situations. IV continues to be healthy I feel good right now with Garrett Nate Jones and Lucas Sims short sample size and Pedro strope. Beyond ad. And then it becomes a matter of what you're. GonNa do with. TJ antone. AG- Laziness Crapshoot Roll the dice, what is most concerning Michael, Lorenzen because of the group a year ago you you knew from last year to this year that would have to be improvements but you thought lorenzen would be good to go maybe with a chance to get even better and now he's certainly in question and I don't know what to make of the report what ten days or so ago I think what? The last week, Camp Michael hadn't thrown why is it? Well, he's experiencing discomfort I to say in the forearm and it was described as because he was working with a new grip on one of his pitches. If you can imagine I'm with my hand right now I'm doing different grips and seeing how that may affect maybe your forearm and maybe working a lot on that pitch maybe it's different muscles I'll know maybe But. The performance so far would lend you think there might be or wonder at least if there might be more to it, and if there is then heaven help him. Because if you're looking at options than PRISCO has I don't know pick from a group of. Jesse biddle David Carpenter Joe Kunal. Tony Santa on. Sal Romano Tyler Thornburg is he still around trying to remember everybody at presque off the top of my head? Yes. You have one hundred Green Nikola. Dolo. But let's let's tap the breaks a little bit pitched above able. That's and I will admit I'm. Guilty as charged. The off-season conversation, the spring training conversation the summer camps conversation was kind of like starting pitching. His awesome offense is going to be so much better and we kinda quickly went in the it'll be. Okay. And we were just kind of hoping and wishing the or the bullpens going to be okay and we were on to the next point that we're making. To this point, the bullpen has not been. Okay. More of your calls we continue five, one, three, seven, four, nine, seven, thousand, one, eight, hundred, the big one and pound seven, hundred on at and T. L. carrier sportstalk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet seven, hundred, wwl W exit ten. Eight twenty three seven hundred wwl W it's aren't L. Carriers sportstalk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet it should have been raised baseball rain white that out but hey, still talking reds baseball till nine o'clock Gary Jeff will serve up the nightcap from nine to midnight by the way and I. I keep running out of time to present this some night and before I run out of time again I wanNA present this it was a piece I want to say what say from Yahoo Sports last week about Super Stations And the cubs and the braves back in the day and it just it caught my attention and it created so many flashbacks to what it was like with TBS and wgn and the opening line, and the the piece about this was before major league MLB network, and before MLB TV, before espn took a hold of the American sports fan and long before we had our own. Networks devoted to our favorite team Fox. Sports Ohio on the TV side baseball fans didn't have too many outlets in the world beyond where they lived. One word changed all of that super stations. The super stations are where we fell in love with Harry Carey where we witnessed the greatness of Dale. Murphy where the idea of Wrigley Field is a baseball destination took hold. There were plenty of Chicago. Cubs and braves fans born and even more that fell in love with the game as a result the super stations mainly wgn tbs brought baseball to the masses in a new way. And Man when I think of Harry and Steve and cubs baseball and wgn, I remember how happy I was what I got out of class early an even when I was at Butler, we'll go back to the dorm room in this is eight, thousand, five, hundred, sixty, seven, eighty, eight, and watch cubs, baseball wgn, and just the treat of being able to watch. Any baseball on something that was called a superstation when you turn on the braves game on tbs and it was what Ernie Johnson and skip van wherein or Pete Van Wearing and skip Carey in braves baseball with Dale Murphy and Bob Horner and Glenn Hubbard Phil Niekro and guys like that and just reading this piece from Yahoo Sports took me back to how how exciting and different it was to think wait minute there's a network devoted to the cubs in one to the braves. and. We can watch all of their games and when the reds play the cubs or the reds play the braves, you can see him on Wgn TBS. and Bob Walled who was the longtime executive producer of cubs baseball made a great point in the PC said you probably had the greatest baseball salesman in the history of the game in Harry? Carey and he said to me we were creating baseball fans not just cubs fans but baseball fans across the country. Oh and when Harry would do the and take me out to the ball game and he's lean out of the booth with it holding the wgn microphone and swing it side to side. I never forget every time I go to Wrigley I would merval at the buses, the buses in the parking lot. Because the buses I always look at the license plate. And the buses would be from Iowa and Wisconsin. And Indiana. All. Over and it was busloads of people who clearly became fans of the cubs watching them on. GDN Who saw Wrigley and what you talk about a salesman in Harry Carey and talk about location location location. The Mecca. Afternoon Baseball Cubs Wrigley Field, Harry Kurt who didn't want to go to Wrigley Field. And I'll never forget one of the coolest experiences I've ever had was in Chicago I worked for Clt we were owned by the Tribune Company we were twenty four hour news channel. I hosted a nightly show at nine o'clock sports page in we carried his permanent agreement carried probably. Five or six cubs games a year. Brother Station, we were all owned by the Tribune, company and couple of games year four or five six slide over to us, and it was helping to cross promote us because we were the new twenty four hour news channel in Chicago and made if you put the cubs on their eyeballs would go. So. As part of the promotion of that, they extended the invitation to me to be in the booth with Harry and Steve, and for Harry to interview be. And so I, I'm Wrigley that day and whatever inning it was I joined them kind of like when. Jeff and Tommy. Do the second inning with the reds beat writers but they have me in the booth and while the game's going on Harry and Steve, this was on the GM wgn side Harry and Steve were interviewing me during the half inning talking about crtv tell us about crtv tell us about sports page. How can Viewers what can they get from CRTV like I was the spokesperson for the station that day and they were they never forget Harry say well, are you married and I look at Steve Stone? So Harry's getting it all this stuff about me until it people about it hardy married I'M A and I was in the booth when they did the the seventh inning stretch I I didn't get to do with them. I got to watch him but it was. As someone who loves baseball and AN RESPECTS LEGENDS OF THE GAME to be in the same booth with Harry and I, I consider Steve. Stone at broadcasting legend is well, he's still broadcasting Chicago to spend that half inning with them one being able to promote our station to what would Harry Carey. Says to you on Wgn radio that whether he did or not it was very kind of him to say when he when he said and I'll never forget this. I like your show. You seem to know your way around the world of sports in what you're talking about and I've like I'm like look at what Harry Carey is talking about me. I think the follow up boys are you married? My goodness. What is happening here but but just GM has such a pull and an attraction am I right? When I said wgn and cubs instead TBS and the braves. I'm thinking you probably flash back to like the eighty s and just some of the visuals of the of the Games in the moments, the players in the personalities and in what power those two super stations bad for reaching out to people. We continue more of your calls and I got I. got a couple of lines open five, one, three, seven, four, nine, seven, thousand, one, eight, hundred, the big win in pounds seven, hundred on at and T. at eight fifty better believe we're doing on this date in reds history but time to do news, the air carriers sportstalk presented by Kelsey.

Let me tell you phone stone was unbelievable. Tell you what was going to happen I and time again before it happens now but let me tell you how much time some changes you that time they were lucky to draw five thousand. And Nine, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, they signed ron say. His contract gave him fifty cents for every person over a million. One point six, million that year that was year they won the division. Now, and nineteen, ninety nine and there with my sons. The giants are there. We get there. We can't get a ticket tickets or fifty dollars a fourth any. Barry bonds wasn't even playing. Man Twenty years. That's how much again change. Yeah it really is. Hey, I appreciate the stories Harian Steve Thank you. I covered Let's see cubs cubs giants in the playoffs would have been what eighty nine I was. I covered that series. In fact I did a story on the ball hawkers everybody out beyond the Left Field Wall. Who? Who chased the home run balls and there were a group of professionals and I mean professionals. Their lawn chairs, they had their little TV's battery operated TV's attracting worthy balls were being hit. They had their their fish nets everything. It would be a mad scramble for home run balls out beyond the why did a story on that group but I show you the impact of of those super stations on this my memory as you know. Reds Fan. Mine entire life I can give you the cubs teams of that time was Jody Davis. Ketchup I can hear Kerry Harry, Carey Singing Jody Jody Davis Best Catcher. In the National League Bull Durham at first Leeann Durham they had Rhino Ryan Sambergen Second Shawon Dunston. A Zukas. Penguin Ron say at third the outfield would have been sarge Gary Matthews in left Bob Dernier. Center. Part of the daily double with Ryne Sandberg in what Zone Keith Moreland in right probably in those braves teams that was Dale Murphy and can't Oberkfell and Bruce Benedict or Polka robot Glenn Hubbard and Claude L. Washington Chris Shambles. Rick. Mailer. Guys like that. Phil. Niekro Oh and Ireland I know that because of the power of the super stations at that time. I add one more story than back to the phones I had opportunities around our Christmas specials. When I was in Chicago at TV I interviewed Harry met Harriet a try to remember what the name of the hotel was downtown or may have been in the the building he lived in but we met in the lobby and I did an hour long interview with Harry, just me and Harry sitting. Big chairs was hour long and it was going to run Christmas Eve and I'll never forget at the end of the interview Harry looks at me and he he had a beer is bud and he looked at me and he picked up the beer. Leaned towards the camera and he said, and this Bud's for you just classic Harry Carey and the following year for Christmas special. I had a chance He was no longer doing games, but I had a chance to go up to Jack Brick houses condo. And in his living room record an hour long special with Jack Brickhouse on memories of life and Times. It comes baseball and broadcasting adjust man. Legends Legends. How about here and Luke Welcome to Sportstalk? How are Ya Alien. You tell me. Okay so I was wondering what you would say to read. running out behind. Starting ninth. Grade or Not. and. You broke up a little bit say again, place of. I was wondering what you'd say to read team who is it running out behind powder gray if it's still too. Going for a game? I feel like when I watch the Games. They think they. Lose it because they were gonNA. You know it's funny because I mentioned earlier in the in the pre game and their last thirty two starts with Casteel on the mound. They're only seventeen and fifteen in. You almost wonder when you have such a dominant pitcher if you don't relax mentally and thank. All right he's got this. We don't have to do a whole lot and then it turns out you're looking and say we're all the offense for this guy. So I mean I Think of how lethal it is to be able to run those three out. If, you're the other team in the reds roll into your city, and you know you're going to face those three and a three game series holy cow. Gary Scary. Thing would be bullpen help. that. Guy on the break. Got The FAA. Let's his name Fulton Habich Yeah. Yeah. Claiming back or allowed to the camp. You know what? I think they I think I saw it on twitter today they claimed him back and we're going to send him to their alternate site. But let me let me double check that because I would make the I think you raise an interesting point it would appear they gave up on him. I don't want to say quickly, but they didn't show a whole lot of patience with him for a guy who in the past had been decent debate for them. How many great stories Hey, good reference. A DJ. Absolutely. Maybe. Even with the Astros. Were Sanchez. Excuse with the. Couple years back. You bring up a great point because it's going to be interesting come deadline time. I. Don't Know How many how many teams are going to be sellers I mean you figure? Figures everybody's going to be bunched up and thinking maybe they're in the race.

Thank you look forward to your call again trade deadline is August thirty first. What what, how, how, how sorted out is it going to be into? Right? You are buyers you are sellers your season's over it's not like everybody's going to be in the race, but I think it's The pool is going to be rather limited because with added playoff spots, more teams are going to thank you know we've finished strong over the last month ear we we got shot to be one of the eight playoff teams. Let's hold onto our guys unless as as as he says, if they're free agents than you gotTa. Make your your decision. All right. Well, head down the stretch. We'll do on this date in reds history grab some more calls. It is eight forty six to special edition of Our L. carrier sportstalk presented by Kelsey Chevrolet at seven hundred WWL W.

He said the reds clobber Columbus Seventeen to four at bank street grounds but Fred. Man of Columbus hits an unusual home run the ball landed down the right field line and rolled under a pile of lumber. But time the ball was found he had circled the basis for a home run.

Rube Benton from the giants he. Did, not, play for the reds until a year later because he was under suspension for gambling activities, it stemmed from his testimony regarding the Nineteen Nineteen World Series Nineteen thirty six Kaikai cuyler I think it's pronounced Kaikai. What's wrong somebody told me I try to phonetically look it up I think it's Kaikai I'm at that. He had eight consecutive hits in a doubleheader against the phillies three hits in game one five more in game. Two. Then I started thinking about Kiki Tandy Xavier Musketeers, and it really confused me. Nineteen thirty nine the reds extend their win streak to ten. With a doubleheader sweep of the phillies in front of Thirty Thousand Closley field, the red stand sixty and thirty leading the National League by Twelve Games over the kernels on this date. About one thousand, nine, hundred, forty, seven, the new. York giants stop. You'll blackwell sixteen game winning streak beating the reds five to four at Crossley field on this date.

Forty five games. Drawing. Much media attention that night. The MESON. Mad, finally, after forty five games, SOMEBODY'S PITCHED A. Complete game. Somebody. Look up the reds last complete game because it didn't happen last season. Well, I mean and to be fair what a handful a complete games at baseball last year. Welcome to baseball today this date nineteen ninety trying to change the look of the reds during an eight game losing streak runny oester shaved his head. It obviously worked. We know how things wound up nineteen, ninety this and think of that for a second ninety team. The wire-to-wire team had an eight game losing streak. This date nineteen, ninety, one trailing the cubs five to four in the bottom of the ninth. Paulo. Neil homers to tie the Game Bill Doran homers to win the game. This state two, thousand, my Guy Sean Casey extends his hitting streak to twenty one games and finally on this date in reds history. I left it by itself at the end nineteen, twenty, eight, the old left hander was borne Joe Nuxhall born on this date nineteen, twenty eight. Always to emotions I always smile when I say Nuxie name and then I think of how much missing. Go back to the phones five, one, three, seven, four, nine, seven, thousand, one, eight, hundred, the big one and pound seven, hundred on at and T. Columbus we go Michael Welcome to sports talk. Thanks for calling. A real quick to say any thing. doubleheaders. Now before all the baseball appears have connections if they do this in the minor leagues actually I say, yes, a you are correct. So. That will be used to you know some of the youngest guy point good point. The any for this year though. That's That's the best point to be made of all this. It's in the middle of the pandemic win were when injuries and the number of pitchers available and they don't want players hanging out together longer than they want. I, think we can handle it for the remainder of this season, and then things will reset hopefully to a more of a normal next year. Now. The one I do not know this are going to be true doubleheaders like. Late One game and then thirty minutes I would imagine. So yes, I would imagine standard time off to rest grab something to eat whatever you like. Okay that's all I need it. That's all I needed. Well, thanks for check it in I'm looking. Complete Games the last reds complete game was twenty eighteen. In fact, bear with me. Okay. Riddle me this. If it was twenty eight team the last complete game by a red I'm going to guess by who let's see. Twenty eighteen complete game. Oh. I. WanNa lost a bet on this. The last reds pitcher to throw a complete game. homer. Bailey. I would have probably guessed twelve different guys before knowing that that wasn't was that the no hitter, no hitter in two, thousand, eighteen track of the year. So let me give you a little spin through reds complete games over the years. None last year Homer Bailey and twenty eighteen. There were two in two, thousand, seventeen, sixteen, Fifteen. There were nine in twenty twelve the last time the reds had double digit complete games in a season was nineteen, ninety three. See that ninety, three team, and again, this just isn't the reds. This is Major League Baseball, today complete games and ninety three. We are talking Jose real with two TIM pugh with three Tim Belcher with four and John Smiley, with to all right before I run out of time the last time the reds had twenty complete games in a season. Nineteen, eighty-eight, they had twenty, four, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, three, they had thirty, four I think about that. In eighty three, they had thirty four complete games and the reds haven't had one since twenty eighteen. Now, let's go back to the seventies big red machine. Nineteen seventy five team had twenty two, the seventy six team had thirty three complete games sparky let thirty three starters, complete games that year let's see. It would have been Gary. Nolan seven Fred Norman with eight pads Zachary with six Billingham with five Gillet with four and Santo. Alkali three. I was a blast from the past. I wish I had more time. I don't we. We had to Arizona's tonight because it should have been reds baseball. Let's gather tomorrow at six O five. I believe we'll kick off a traditional inside pitch.

WWDTM Best of the Decade

"From NPR and WBZ CHICAGO. This is wait wait. Don't tell me the NPR news quiz. Hey Reset your clocks. It's a new bill any of curtains and here is your host. That the tastes pacemaker. TERRARIUM IN CHICAGO. Peter Sega thank you bill. Thanks everybody so it is a new year. But it's not just that it's a new decade of the twenty twenties we were supposed to have a C. Lab by now there should be colony is on Mars instead all we've managed to invent his slang kits but before we get disappointed in the decade to come we decided to go over the last decade. The twenty tens. We're actually not so bad. We asked our staff and you our listeners to name your favorite moments from the last ten years of our show amazingly we found enough stuff to fill a whole hour. I was prepared to fill the last half hour by humming patriotic music. Doo Doo Doo. Doo Doo Doo. Doo Doo Doo. Doo Doo. Thank you bell. We will start with a not my the job game with Cookbook Author Mark Bitten from twenty thirteen. My plan was to ask him three questions about the Superhero Batman. But faith sailly got in the way. Well Mark Pitman. We're delighted to talk to you. We've asked you here to play a game. We're calling holy Bittermann Batman so we sure this happens wants to you a lot with a name like vitmain being mistaken for the Cape. Crusader the world's greatest detective the dark night. So we're going to ask you three questions about Batman specifically the movie Batman and Robin. That was the one with George Clooney as Batman and did it is widely regarded as the very worst. Is that modern Batman Batman in had nipples. That is the one that after the first question. I am never inviting you back. Faith answer the answer to questions correctly and win. A prize took two questions correctly and winter price of one of our listeners. Causeway on our voicemail because Lewis mark bitten playing for Marcus playing for leanna Malkowski of Colorado Springs Colorado Colorado so the movie was horrifically panned by the critics when it came out but one of the things that got fans especially angry was. What was it a Batman is shown shown sleeping while hanging upside down? Be Sexy cat. Woman was replaced by a character called crazy cat lady or see nipples on the bat suits Flyer Day you. I don't know how you could have known that but yes it's September twenty thirteen. We talked to the singer. Jewel told us how she managed to get out of her hometown of homer Alaska and start a career. Thanks to the generosity of a particular person. Somebody we happen to have right. They're bringing forward a little time. You're fifteen years old. You're living living by yourself in a unheeded cabin near Homer Alaska. You're commuting to work by horse which I love hitchhiking. We're their horse gems on the way into downtown homer there were not but the drive Thru was interesting. I can imagine McDonald's and you get an invitation to apply to Interlocken the famous arts school in Michigan. And we'll tell me what happened next I was given a partial scholarship uterus about ten thousand dollars which I wasn't isn't able to come up with and so a bunch of the women in town and Bunch of my aunts helped me organize my first solo concert. I hadn't written any songs yet but it did. Co Co porter songs and in a lot of local businesses donated items and we auctioned them off and I make quite a bit of money but I was still short and Mr Tomba. That helped he. He made sure I got off to school and he helped write a check back so I just want to clarify because I love this. So you're like you're fifteen years old. If you're living by yourself you have no money. Here's your chance to go to art school and after the concert you were still short. How much money quite personal now in in the book you say that Tombo debt who you call homers resident celebrity wrote you a check for five thousand dollars? Oh I forgot to put it in there so yes sorry about that topic. You're getting all shy about information that I only knew because you wrote your dual high. I by the way it's been it's been a long time and and thank you so much for for remembering that but it's funny. I remembered it as five hundred dollars. Ah I like your version better but I also seem to recall that your aunt. Sharon was my bookkeeper at the time. And I just gotTa wonder now if I said Sharon Monte writing a check for five hundred dollars and always loved that Dan Sharon she was always very good to you. In Two thousand sixteen. The Chicago Chicago cubs won their first world series in a century shortly after that the cubs Pitcher Ryan dempster join the park in downtown Chicago. We are told that you do a pretty good Harry Carey impersonation I I should say before we go on the Harry Carey was the legendary sportscaster for both the white sox and for the cubs here in Chicago. I Love Harry Carey. He was like one of the first Broadcasters growing up in in a small town outside of Vancouver that we would get cubs games on wgn and so. I just loved them the fact that he could talk for an entire inning meant nothing about baseball. That's to me so I always liked to Pat Hughes who is now the radio voice for the Chicago cubs. Yes figure out here absolutely and he told me a great story one time was. He said they were driving to the field together. They were carpooling down and Harry was doing about ninety on the edens he was flying to the field and he got pulled over and pats like. Oh you're you're in trouble. Harry says hi fi broadcast through the cavs. I'm Deborah trouble right. You Watch this. I'll get out of this tickets. The problem so the police officer shows up he pulls up to the car and he you know he says can I give you license and registration and harasses. You know officer right would give you that but this is a stolen old car so he says Sir you might get out of the Clintons point he kind of starts to send. Something's going on his anything else. You want to tell me to be honest with you. I got a loaded gun in the glove compartment leases. Come on out here. He gets them out of the car and he he scissor anything else. I'm going to call my partner in here. Is there anything else you want to tell me. He'll if we're going to get right down to it officer got a dead body a little bit of list here. So now they got Harry and pat there over by the car on the trunk of the car in this cops going through the car and then all of a sudden his partner comes up to me says hey Mr Kerrey can I talk to you. Then he says officer cerise is well. My partner said that you said this was a stolen car. It's registered to you. He said you have a loaded gun in the glove compartment. There's nothing but in the insurance papers and he said you have a dead body in the trunk and all you have in their golf clubs and he looks a cop and the ice is love. Guess who's GonNa tell you. I was speeding. Do and it was just a few years earlier also in Millennium Park when we interviewed a local hip hop artists. Do seem to have a pretty bright future. So chance the rapper. You're welcome thank you so guy up in the south side Yes sir and you haven't been growing up for very long only about what twenty three. I'm twenty two days. Yea I'm a young guy you are and this story we heard which which is that You you've been performing since you were a kid right yeah Started out doing Talent shows and open MIC programs and youth programs around the city. And I've been doing it for a while now. We heard you at one point. You did a fine Michael Jackson Person. Wow that's crazy. That's D did do that at kindergarten graduation relation so less than twenty years ago. But yeah pretty reason so but the thing the story. We heard that if you have an origin story like a superhero that you you were thrown out of school for a little while High School and you took some time and you what did you do yeah so when I was a senior in high school I got suspended for having marijuana around the school. I wasn't even really in the school just so I got in trouble finish for having marijuana and I was suspended from school and so on that ten day break doc. I started recording a project. Call which was my debut project and put a lot of people on What I was doing and understanding? Is You put that on the Internet. You worked on four. I'll put on the Internet was ready and it took off making your name very quickly. It did a lot for me. You're doing and hip hop shows. You've put out some albums that have done tremendously well. You're headlining MM festivals. What would you say now? It he or she were here to the principal of the high school. WHO suspended you well? There's a strong chance that they're here because uh they're not here. They're listening. I'd probably say thank you to all the inspiration ratio throwing out of school. How do you actually compose rap? Are you so talented. That rhymes James. Just come to you or I would have to sit down with a rhyming dictionary and works. Today's but how does it. How does it come to you? That's it's a great question I think there's a lot of premeditation. If you will to making a raft you gotta sit down Focus on your breathing. You know you WanNa do a good workout pushups maybe sit ups Play cards are think about taxes. Think about all the people that you know. In the in this life impossibly pass life if you believe in that and then you know you take off your shoes. Put a pencil between your toes and you start writing in got to write that down a lot of steps to death but you own it you understand that whatever were you say about this. Everybody here will believe death going home like the thing about this hip hop with their feet. It would you please. Would you please give it to me straight. I'm forty six is too late for me to become a rapper. No I don't think so. So some people might say it's too soon to become a rapper. What we come back more about the private lives of mice than you ever wanted to know and Bob Dylan in a bag? That's in a minute wait wait don't tell me from.

Wait don't tell me the NPR news quiz. I'm Bill Curtis and here here is your host at the Chase Bank Auditorium in Chicago. Peter say golf thank you. Thanks everybody so bill Brian. I are reviewing. What many of you and some of US think we're the highlights of the two thousand ten on our show? My personal highlights of the decade will have to remain secret but suffice to say. You're welcome Your Majesty. Nothing dominated the decade like the Internet. Did the place where we ended up shopping dating dating. And as it turned out picking Presidents but trusting the wisdom of crowds didn't always work out as we saw in this story for March Twenty Sixteen Luke. The British National Environmental Research Council decided to let the public pick a name for its new research vessel via an Internet poll and the people chose in their wisdom in our wisdom. Chose what name this is why we can't have nice things this is. Why why because people named things boaty mcboatface? They're hoping for or a great and noble name from British history like the Shackleton or the R. M. S.. Benny Hill. But no the Internet has spoken the vessel missile shall henceforth be boaty mcboatface. You may laugh and you will but think of the crew who has to serve I. She's a good ship there. She sits body mcboatface. Ah I she is yard I and there is nobody more stern and commanding right than a British naval captain. And can you imagine that poor guy. Hail to the ship Captain Alan Majesty's vessel Boaty mcboatface votes face. I like the wipe that smile off your face and prepare to be boarded. How did that work? Did lots of people come up with that name. One Guy who has apologized came up with it and Everybody said that's the name you know that when it's time to Christen the ship hip they're going to have to do it with like a Capri Sun in September of two thousand nineteen. We asked Roy Blunt on himself. And Award Winning Sportswriter About Competition in India Roy. A competition in India ended in failure when none of the registered entrance could complete the task that they were supposed to be judged on. What was that task in India India? Well Competition not necessarily a sporting. No no but it was a contest competition of who who could do something best but it turns out nobody was able to do is have anything to do with the fact that India no no except for the fact that type of the fact in India India. They do eat a lot of lagoons. That probably somebody do that. Lagoon yes well. None of them could pronounce they. I bet bill can say legume so views. Oh People Moran out quite Jerry Lewis the way you did binge eating had to do with eating eating not eating. What else do you do? Well there. I'll give if they had been able to succeed. There would have been judged on length loudness musicality off. Course I got it lagoons good for the heart. The more the more you eat the more you exactly exactly. I don't want to say on the right in a competition that is literally the opposite of the MacArthur. Genius Award organizers had even developed the proprietary device to measure competitors quote fart parameters but no contestant no contestant could produce even one entry on stage and of course it's one. It's one area where you don't want to push too hard to do it. Because then it becomes an entirely different kind of competition now. While the failure was a disappointment for everyone in the auditorium it was a great relief for everyone in the auditorium. Wait so over here here. I'm just another guy. India Roy was also the panelists. We asked a question to November two thousand fourteen eighteen about a very strange experiment with mice. Roy Scientists reported this week in an interesting memory experiment in which they were able to use a laser to replace bad memories in in mice with mice. Have lots of that. They put that aside been how the laid back he was. Rector love to buy Now what I want you to do is is I wanted. Forget about the bit about changing good memories into bed with a laser. We don't know what that was about. Maybe it'll be useful Sunday but we're interested in is how 'cause they needed to do this experiment. They needed to give the mice a bad memory which they did with electric shock but they needed to also create a good memory for the mounts to conduct his experiments and they gave each of the male mice. What a memory of a you know L. A.? Female mouth will not non-memory well they did but not just give you hint. It's sort of like my Saggio Twat to a memory of doing it with basically basically in order to give these mice good memories that then experiment they gave the mice threesomes wow fantasy. So the scientists are sitting around. And they're thinking about what would give him a good memory and just you know is one of the scientists was about to say well we could go with cheese. Another scientist shuts three the scientists said how about fishing with their dad and the mice out that it was not the first guy. What's the bad memory? The bad number was being on a wheel while the guy with the three threesome was in the other tank trying to get over there to join. You know anywhere. The only in June of twenty seventeen. We asked Paula poundstone about a brand new. The food sort of in China. Whatever it was of course? It got her Mad Paula in China. SHOPPERS OFFERS CANAL PURCHASE POTATO CHIP BAGS. That contain what well the obvious answer. Peter Potato chips so can you give me a hint to ask for it but brands include lays lady lays I love that song. This lady include Eric Clapton. What Eric Clapton is inside? Not Cloud lab. Who is it? You're thinking of Layla. Who is it about Chris? My GRANDPA who is that Clapton. Bob Dylan Bob. Bob Dylan's in a potato chip anymore into an Eric Clapton. Being and it's not. It is a book book of his lyrics. A book of his lyrics coming up potato chip they do you know. I think our level of respect for Bob Dylan is just not where it should be to the untrained eye. These look like bags of Bob Dylan flavored potato chips which by the way is indistinguishable from salt and vinegar. What it is? It's a booklet of his lyrics inside the little potato chip bag. Instead of Bob Dylan becomes only the second Nobel laureate to have his work sold in snack bags along with Gabrielle. Garcia flaming hot cheetos. This makes any sense visit. Actually it does because somebody said why. Are you selling books of Bob Dylan lyrics inside potato chip bags with a picture of Bob Dylan on the front. Yeah and they said well we thought about what people really like and people really like potato chips. The we when you say we thought of the company decided that they would like to sell booklets of Bob Dylan lyrics to the good people to China. Yeah use the Nobel Prize winner in literature. I thought the story started with the potato chip people who were like. How do we spice this up? No no no but when you tell it to me that way I get it. Yeah it's like why not. I saw him in a nightmare. Right now you take you you WANNA sell delicious with it at the very beginning of the show when Peter said we're watching a bad thing happen and there's nothing we can do about it. We do something about it. Well this is America. And we don't get our Bob Dylan from a potato. The chip in February twenty seventeen. We had a reunion with one of our favorite guests from the prior decade of the soul. Great Mavis Staples. This amazes me. May this the last time Emme Rauner show was about eight years ago. Yes it was so what you've been up to since then anything. It's all been doing a lot of things. Peter thanks to you you. Yeah we started you on. I'm trying to think of all the things that's happened. So let's see you toured with Wilco Chicago band. And uh-huh was an arcade fire arcade Fi. Wow you were there in the middle of it in the sixties musical explosion. We all know that we all as we talked about last time. You and Bob Dylan had a little bit of a thing old guy the how if we been talking about anything that isn't that well we we. We covered that a little bit. Yes we did Last night she was here. So my question is Howard things. Different now touring around with arcade firing wilco and everything should be doing then it was back. Then it's it's keeping me younger people. But you didn't mention Dylan now know that I toured with Dillon. I didn't know that Yasser Tour with Dylan. Oh my gosh thanks wake aches and how was that was great now.

You're Looking Live

"The Marty Smith's America podcast is presented by T, so official watch of the NBA shop at US not T so shop dot com. Welcome to the martyr swissamerica podcast, all you, five and icon legend in the sports broadcasting arena on the program this week. And I'm thrilled and humbled that he took the time to do it Brent Musburger who, like me is the sports soundtrack of many of those of you listening, your life and certainly your youth. I can remember sitting on the couch with my daddy as young man as a boy, sitting there with dad, and watching the NFL today on CBS with Musburger, and Jimmy the Greek and Irv cross and all of those folks and back then there weren't all of the channels in, in from which to gain your sporting knowledge. Whether that's news highlights whatnot new stories and back then there was. Just that show. And there was no sportscenter yet. And there was no ESPN yet, and all those things it didn't it didn't exist in his certainly social media. And so those guys just became we welcome them into our homes. They became almost family members with what they gave us from an entertainment, and news perspective. And I have been in the last couple of weeks. Binge watching sports history, documentaries, thirty for thirty s and a football life on NFL network. I really liked those a lot rewatch the cinema movie which if you guys haven't seen it, please go find it, it might be the greatest movie I've ever seen. And you know we just a couple of weeks ago on here talked about that. Hurley Haywood movie with Patrick Dempsey, all those things. I've been watching them a lot and I just don't watch live TV anymore. I don't know why I just don't I would rather sit down and read a book or certainly spent time with my. Children outside, then I would to sit in front of the television. But when I am really immersing myself in history, and the icons of yesteryear that really shaped my life, and that kind of storytelling in any way, as watch these movies, I've noticed that Brent Musburger is in damn near every one of them, whether it was calling Lakers, Celtics or sitting alongside, you know, as I stated Irv cross, and Jimmy the Greek and those folks on NFL today man, he was there for most of them. And I'll tell you I will never forget standing on the hill above the backstretch at New Hampshire international raceway in two thousand seven and I'm standing there nervous, as all nervous as hail. I, I was so nervous because I was actually on the pre race. The NASCAR countdown pre race program to report some news story, or give insight into some news story that was breaking in the sport of the time. And at that time bridge. Rent was the host of our NASCAR countdown show. And so I'm staying on this hill with this camera in my face. My heart is beating out of my chest. Because Brent Musburger is about the toss it to me on live, national television. And I could not believe that Brent Musburger was about the talk to me on TV and I remember talking to my daddy after. And he could not believe that Brent Musburger actually said my name said it on TV pretty damn cool. And just that guy if it was an important sporting moment since nineteen seventy five he probably called it, other than, of course, the miracle on ice, which was Al Michaels, and we all know, we've heard that the you believe in miracles a trillion times in our lives. But man, Brent was the voice, he was the soundtrack of so many of those iconic moments so to get to spend this time with him, was very, very special for me. And you're gonna. Learn a lot about his path. I certainly did. But before we get to Brent, I want to just discuss hiring with you guys because hiring can be really challenging, but there's one place you can go where hiring is not challenging. And in fact, it's simple fast, easy, and smart. A place where growing businesses connect to qualified candidates that place is recruiter dot com slash Marty.

Why ZipRecruiter dot com slash mardi. Ziprecruiter, the smartest way to hire very few minds or smarter about the history of sport than Brent Musburger. Why because Brent lived it and man, it was so cool, spent thirty thirty five minutes with him here is my conversation on the Marty Smith's America podcast with legendary sports broadcaster, Brent Musburger. Man. It's such a pleasure to welcome to the Marty Smith's America podcast, a legend among legends in the sports broadcasting realm, Brent Musburger, who, if it's been a huge moment in sports in the last thirty five or forty years, even man, he was he was either there or he called it. And so it's just amazing to, to spend this time with you, sir. And I always like to discuss what people helped you and were influential in your journey. And you've had such an amazing journey who were a couple of those people that were real spearheads that believed in you, in a neighborhood, you to have that career, you know, more luck and timing played an incredible of role in my in my journey, when I was a newspaper man in Chicago, the CBS radio station, a transfer from all talk. Over to who's an information and the sports cast or at the time fellow of the name of Rick Weaver was very uncomfortable doing the two minute news updates and he wanted badly to return to play by play and talk radio. So he caught on as the voice of the Miami Dolphins when the NFL expanded down to Miami, and the radio station of general manager about Bill O Donnell at hurt me, simply as a guest of Hugh times. He called me over. I was a columnist at the time that this was American and he, he offered me a job, which paid me considerably more than I was making the newspaper and I had a family started at the time, and I wanted to buy a house, suburban Chicago. So I told him. Yes, I think I could do that. But I opened whose paper at least Bizet, and I went over to the managing editor, and he couldn't believe that I was willing to give up a newspaper column to return and become a radio broadcaster full-time. And when he didn't offer me a dime more. I said, look, it's been great. I've enjoyed it. Thank you very much, but I'm going to radio. So I made the transition over the radio and about the same time the news blocks on the stations the local stations start to expand because there was no ESPN. There was no cable. There was no place to go for the sports information, especially locally. So the TV station was located the same radio and they asked me, who kinda commentary of for us. We we'd like to see and, and we'd like to think about using you as a commentator. And so I being a newspaper man, I do that. Well controversy more her hair. So I taped about a minute and a half as I recalled a commentary suggesting that the Chicago Blackhawks Detroit either Bobby Hall, or stand Akita and around that on a Sunday evening, and it broke the all time negative phone list, down below at the television station. So that first part of the week the general man. Major call you want to be full time because because of the response, he got out of it, and I said, listen, I'm not going to suggest that the cubs trade, either Arnie banks around Santo, or go from there. So the mindful that that was a one time, only Bobby homes, damaged heathen. I laughed about it for years to come. They went on to win the Stanley Cup together. And obviously, the Blackhawks didn't trade either one even though Bobby later wound up playing for the Winnipeg Jets in the in the rival Hockey League that, that started up. But when I was with the television station, fulltime general manager by the name of Bob Wessler was moved by CVS to New York to head up the sports division. And that's when Bob decided that we needed a live pregame show, which led to the NFL today. So all of those stops along the line, but I'm already a lot of a lot of young people asked me, you know, how, how do I become a sports catch? What do I do? And going hard for me because I was in the right place at the right time. And I attribute any. Great intellect. I just think that I was very very fortunate. When I got the opportunities along the way, I knew that I had this opportunity and I made the most of it during the time. So it's very difficult. When I started out there, we're not a lot of sports catchers. Like I said earlier, that was no ESPN. There were none of the cable outlets, and so you really relied on the local television stations, but it's been a it's been a wonderful journey as it began. I fell under the influence of, of people like Harry Carey not always good, because Harry, and I would drink tonight at the night away, sometimes, but, but he was one of the great characters that I was around been Scully. I was fortunate enough to work with him, dick Enberg o- on the way all these guys that I knew. And it was a great era, to, to be sportscaster, growing up. And that's just a long way of saying, a whole lot of people entered into this, and I was very fortuitous and. I loved I loved every minute of it. I can relate. I'm very similar story. I'm a newspaper man as well. Studied print journalism in college was a newspaper writer out of college. And then this new thing happened called the internet. And I became a writer on an internet site and on and on. And then out of nowhere ESPN called one day, people believed in me and believed in my passion and my pro-choice, and I've been so blessed by that. So I have I can relate to what you're saying. Now, I want to go back to Harry Carey just a minute. What the hell is it like drinking beers with Harry that must be the greatest time a man can have? You got that, right. Marlena for like never had to pay for it. Every was really extremely generous and keeps loved me the up at that time because I was doing the ten o'clock Ripley central time zone. And so the news block would come up at ten o'clock in New York, of course east coast. The local news comes on eleven but it was ten o'clock in Chicago and the lights at the time. So his games were. And so he would he had a place called Tommy O'Leary's that I would walk down to, and he would drop by a he was already holding court. Harry Carey restaurant had not yet started up. So he used liberties basically as a base. And, and it was it was wonderful to watch. I learned a great lesson from Harrier that is when a person comes up to you in a in a setting like that designed, I graph you talked to he would he would stand there at the bar and sign. In every napkin and every Cup program. People in the world was hanging out, and then they would leave him alone and other announcers, and how I and we shared anecdotes, and I just love sitting there and listening to attack. Harry Carey, I, I, I will never, I will never forget the evening, somehow we got on the more of a topic of passing away airy set to the group. Now listen now, listen. Don't you any of you any of you ever allow them to cremate me because all burn for fifty years? And of course after laughs and always other around it was it was awesome to be around, Harry, he, he actually tried that hire me to come into his, his relief announcer with the cubs at WGN to work middle two or three innings, I own ously. I hesitated before. I. No may cave me a few nights sleepless nights one of the great characters of all time. And in that particular era baseball announcers, where the top of the sports announcing food chain, that's no longer the, the situation television, especially football has replaced baseball as the as the number one, go to sport for majority of the American population. But back in that day when I started out baseball was number one in Harry Carey was clearly the king in Chicago. Why did you say no? You know, I know I'm not quite I think I loved. I loved CBS. Was don't give about CBS at the time of the NFL today had started up urban and Phillips, and Jimmy the Greek were were great friends online. So I just thought no let me stick with what I'm doing. They've given me this great opportunity, and, and I did I had long meetings with the. There were a couple of times when I almost left CVS, the other one was ruined Arledge came and wanted to hire me one so the Howard goes so role on Monday night football. And that again lead simply plus nights on my part. I came I came very close. A ruined probably would have said yes to the ABC offer knowing how controversial I was about to become if I stepped into that because I knew what wanted we talked about it for a long, long time. Frank Gifford was the play by play man. And they, they wanted a little more vinegar to go in there with the all time good guy Frank, and then they would have had an athlete. I don't know that was at the time would have been would've back to the three-man booths. And now Rune flew off to an affiliate meeting in Hawaii. When I called back and I would I was all prepared to tell him. Yes. And then I couldn't reach you in airplane. It by the time he arrived over a hollow. I had a change of heart and decided to, to stay at CBS at no time in either of those that I go back and ask for more money or try to negotiate, they were both. Great offers and I gave them both serious, serious consideration. Wow. Isn't that amazing having earlier your path might have been completely different to Lutely? Absolutely you. You've noted the NFL today a couple of times and, and as a little, little guy, a little Tyke. I can remember watching it with my daddy, every Sunday. And he was it's this titan. It's this institution. That is in terms of sports broadcasting. It was the it was the example by which all that became the NFL pregame shows was founded. So it had to have changed your life dramatically. How did it change? Oh, absolutely. Well, first of all. It made me it made me completely. I mean, you know, first of all you came in with the last name Musburger, I didn't change it back in back in my day. A lot of announcers on television, actually changed their last name. For example, Jim McKay was actually Jimmy McManus. And he had already changed his last name. So there was this unusual last name along or last name then broadcast personalities used, and it became known strictly through the NFL today. I was simply an unknown commodity out of the city of Chicago. And so the, the NFL today is responsible for, for every bit of my career. Once I moved to the network level in New York. I mean that's the show that gave me a presence and, and then people knew who I was because of the NFL today, and it was as you say, it's at the standard because we were I and it was Bob west sorts. To go live and have live halftime and post game shows at the time because and then particular time Pete Roselle Commissioner with I was already very, very friendly, with, because he'd been a PR man with the Los Angeles Rams and everything back in the day before he became Commissioner back in that day, the NFL, made sure that the networks works really profitable of regarding their coverage on Sunday, especially CBS. That's how Roselle cut the contract with the with the networks after the prices soared for the individual franchises in the NFL that change completely the, the team owners wanted to milk, every dollar. They could out of television simply because of their costs. So the networks had to move at a different direction to get back what they were paying for this great programming. And so they expanded. Yeah. Fell today was a half hour Sunday as you know. And now I think goodness say they won't upwards of two hours because. They need that commercial revenue to, to pay for what they what they're paying the National Football League. ESPN obviously doesn't have Sunday games, but they have an extensive pre-game show because they need that revenue to, to pay the league what they owe for their rights to to Monday night football. So became more of a money game after that. I I've always thought that we had an advantage only going thirty minutes, let the problems which the Greek and Phillips, because both wanted airtime during the thirty minutes, but you could be, I think more suspect, you could you could offer stories of people were interested in a rather than just sorta droning on and on. Which is sometimes the case, because you don't have that much to go on with the games having not started yet on a Sunday. When you run the long long pregame shows, but it strictly related to money and, and nothing else what change. But during the, the NFL today it was the Grossberg. For the for the National Football League. That's what they, they took over clearly is number one when it came to the hearts and minds of the American sports fan for us. It was great being a part of it. And having this show go live, and I loved loved every minute of the of the NFL today. When CBS fired me nineteen ninety that particular full, I'll never forget the first out of the rancid, Montana. I couldn't even turn on the television set. I just walked kind of round out in the fields and went out and made friends with a couple of horses out there and talk to them. It was such a withdrawal for me, because I missed I missed the action on that on that for Sunday. Probably probably I'm not an unhappy person. I've, I've an optimistic person that was probably the toughest day of my broadcast life was not being on the air, and that fall of nineteen ninety. On that opening Sunday of the national football because I loved, I loved every money every even even the controversy that erupted, which omitted rake and, and things like that. I loved every minute of the NFL today, it was it was great. Yeah. Whatever I was able to accomplish broadcast, and it's a result of the NFL. I don't think it's any question about that. You noted that your surname suddenly becomes one of the most recognizable in entertainment. And so you got famous. I mean you there wasn't Twitter there wasn't the internet? There weren't all of these countless myriad outlets to consume sports news or entertainment, there was you guys. So I you guys became really famous. How'd you manage fame money? It's kind of interesting. I never let it affect me one way or the other. I think sometimes we go out to dinner and my wife was bothered more than me, people would come up and. Trude at the table. And, and so I guess, I guess the most valuable lesson that I took from those days with Harry Carey is that when you're out in a in a public situation, you, you belong to the public because that's who made you what you are responsible for, for whatever riches and fame that you have. And so that you, you owe to be nice back to the public. And if you and if you wanna scape that you simply go home and read a book or talk to the family, and voided, I, always, I always had that I, I knew when I could be real real private. It's just go home to Arlene. And I I was very fortunate. You know, we've been married now fifty seven years ahead, the two boys and always had nice homes for two and always enjoyed. So I knew I knew how to find my privacy. But when I would go out public restaurant or wherever airports, whatever. Nobody wanted to come up until I knew that everybody I knew that Akron had their own team. And they had their own and about sports. It's a point. And, and I was always kind of interesting, what people had to say because I knew that they also knew more entertaining than I did. I didn't know as much about all the teams as, as they did about their individual team. I knew a little bit about every team, but I always I always kinda kept my ears open as I traveled through this and, and I learned a lot. I learned a lot from the folks out there, but I never you know, I wasn't why I got into the business to become famous. I love sports. I was not a good enough athlete. I would have preferred to a played, I would have preferred a major league baseball player, but I was never never going to be that good at any particular sport. But I always knew even when I was six years old. Rounded, because I enjoyed the rhythm of it, I enjoyed the competency, the now I love to in my spare time as I have done the last couple of weeks. I love the National Hockey League playoffs in the NBA playoffs. And I watch I watch every night and marvel at the at the athlete's ability that's out there. And, you know the Indianapolis five hundred is is coming up. I've been interested in how they're pushing and I'll be watching the race on on Sunday and seeing how they do. So if it's if it's competition, I just enjoy it. That's, that's the rhythm of my life, who is your favorite athlete to cover whom you got to know personally. Well, it became characters after a while probably the most important to me was probably Mohammed Ali simply because where the radio station I. One thing that I had done for them as a newspaper and I had gone down and gotten more those interviews with Mohammed all eight. Now, an interview Muhammed all the back in the day was basically asked a question and get out of the way he would take it from there. He was he was the ultimate show. When are we go down to his house on the south side of Chicago? He had converted. He had become a Muslim at the time and you would go into his house, I knew the bodyguards would be in there. I knew they would be standing at the end of the whole their suit, jackets covering up. They were both packing every day, but then they would let you go in, because Muhammad view from being on the air, and in Chicago, and he loved to entertain. So he was certainly he was an important car and in my success because of the interviews that I would get from just showing up for the tape recorder land with a camera down probably the fellow that I. Really got to enjoy how go, thanks because he too was such a an easy interview. I love this optimism. I loved his smile, the people in Chicago loved him. The manager of this time was how Lopez, and he was such a gentleman. And when I traveled with them, he taught me basically all about baseball, he'd been a hall of fame catcher in his playing day before it could get managed or the Cleveland Indians, Chicago White Sox. Those people were were important to me, because of their availability, whenever I needed an interview, but there were so many and then, and then later, I developed a very close relationship with Pete Rose sort of an unusual way because he had come in as a player, he was an expert during the World Series and the NFL today. And the next week should be the Greek was taken ill and we all knew that P like to take a position of football drawn games. And we've. Brought him in it handicap games, and even now, clause Vegas. When I run into Pete after one of his autograph sessions, you remind me that it was a better handicap than than Jimmy the Greek. So, so it goes it goes on. And on my day, the one difference and is that we were much closer to the athletes that than the BDO folks are today after a baseball game. For example, I might go out drinking with a young. Dave. The butcher was a rookie pitcher with the Chicago White Sox. But we wouldn't know more about of writing about divorce are having maybe one, too many beer, and then getting back peers and they're getting back to the hotel room because it wasn't due to start pitching for another couple of days. Those things we, we were friends have relates back in the day. Yes. Sometimes we have to criticize them, but, but dick young the new York Daily News talk me that when you criticize an athlete, the one thing that you must do if show up the next day you. Walk in there and you give him a chance to disagree with you. And I learned that lesson and whenever I criticize an athlete, I was always there. You wanna talk to come on, and we had, we had a much better relationship than than the media does today. You know if an athlete went into a bar in my time, there was no cell phone picture of him. Nobody was going to send out over Twitter. It's a lack of privacy for, for an athlete today. I'm sure it has made it very, very tough on on some of these fellows. So it was an entirely different time. What impact does the loosening of sports gambling, and it becoming more accepted have on Pete Rose's opportunity to be a hall of Famer Brent? You know, mardi it's, it's a very good question, given it I've given a lot thought. The, the problem the problem with me is that I've thought all wound problem in my point of view is that I have. Felt all pretty blooms in the hall of fame and I have said at the bottom of the plaque it should say that he was suspended in whatever year for gambling on baseball. I don't think I don't think we should ignore this. I think is a vital part of the of the narrative about the game and, and certainly about about Pete Rose it, obviously down the road has has to help him in some regard. There's going to be some powerbroker who's going to agree not agree with me, but he's gonna come to the same conclusion that this guy belongs. But we should not ignore. What happened to him in the end? And so, I think it will come to pass due. I think it is close. I don't get as close at all. But I think it will happen someday. There's another fellow who, who certainly belongs in the hall of fame also in my mind, and that's Barry Bonds. I was around I was around Perry's father, Bobby bonds, quite a bit, and Bobby wound up having problems with alcohol. And so then he had to go to rehab took the cure came back and was clean and was able to go on with his career and his son before he got into whatever anabolic steroids. He he was involved with was a tremendous athlete for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Everybody remembers berry with the San Francisco forty Niners as well. They should. Because that's what the homerun prowess came to the forefront. But it it's hard to know more now. Whether or not we have an entire wing in the hall of fame, or the you people tend to forget that what Mark McGwire and Sammy, Sosa with that one year helped bring baseball back and both probably. Yeah. Yes. Baseball back with that great home run. Chase that they had. So, so all of those are controversies that will let the baseball people sort out, but beyond a shadow of a doubt Pete Rose belongs in the hall of fame. Let's stay on that topic because it's what you do now out in Vegas. Of course, you do such a great job out there with, with the program, you guys do focusing on betting, and making sure people are making the right bits and, and taking care of their paper. What do you think is the greater broader stroke impact? Brent of people accepting sports gambling more readily today, you know. It's hard to put your arms around one reason, mardi, first of all, I think there has to be a concern and care. I have said, all, even though I'm in favor of legalizing it because when it was illegal people were doing it anyway. And so, I believe that it should be carefully watched but not everybody should jump into it. And I hope that youngsters don't think it's easy because it's not in a game. I football for example, is a Greek always told me the football is not rounds and they get those crazy bounces things like that. I'll be asleep a gambling in particular had had a huge part in the in the rise of the National Football League point spreads. That was a stroke of genius by the bookmakers, who came up with that. Because if you were just picking winners on sided. But when you add, the element of the of the points British like that element of weights to jockey over twice. It's it's a lot. It's something that I've always been interested in, if fascinates me, I don't how difficult it is to win on a on a regular basis it fuels and I in the games, I think white now the media, the media has jumped on it because it was a forbidden fruit. And suddenly, it's legal and I think I think. Going to become more like Europe. It's there, but you don't pay that much attention to it to be perfectly honest, when you go over last year, for example, I was in London with the with raider for football game. So I made it a point to go into the various bet shops. I haven't been in London as often as I was I do that. That's basically every street corner. You've got two or three of the competing bet shops, and quiet there. There's certainly not as laborat- as, as our sports, which are the United States and. You know, people are not thinking about the Premier League in terms of gambling twenty four seven and I think it'll settle into that rhythm of the United States and just become part of it. If you wanna if you wanna take a position on the Toronto Raptors in the Milwaukee Bucks when they go back up to Toronto. Raptors looking to close it out and they will be slight favorite in that game. If you want the money line, or you want to give the more it's going yet, but you can sit there and enjoy that game without having without having wage around to. I mean, that's when we will see what kind of a rhythm, it's settles into over people in particular years Gulf, they like to bed during the turn amount as it's unfolding. They'll see particular player that they want that on, or they want to bet against someone in the United States, people are opinionated before this team is going to win. So hey, I I'm not quite. Sure that in came wagering is going, go to the extent that it has over in Europe. There's a lot of time or in a soccer match of the Premier League when you can make different wager. When you're watching in particular a basketball game, it's very hard Tibet in game because things move so quickly and fast now during that period, the bookmakers don't have as much time either. So somebody wish are about numbers and has an idea can can move quickly and, and make a bet. But I, I'd like to repeat, it's not it's not for everybody, not every youngster should think that he can retire because sports better, and I don't think you have to bet to enjoy, by the way. But I do think that because it exists, and because so much money has been involved that we need to have it legalized, and, and we need to watch over politics, the problem with the politicians as they want the tax revenue. And if you look at the books out of Nevada, it doesn't generate nearly as much revenue for the state as say slot machines. That's the that's the profits when or the in the state of Nevada, if a book makes four or five percent, and it given months. That's very, very good month. And I think the politicians have an idea that you make twenty thirty percent of these sports bets, and you do not. So I think it's going to become part of the American culture, I think it'll settle down right now. Everybody's making a big deal out of it. I know that your boss's ESPN bills studio, I think Bleacher report is putting one up. And of course, the heart of it in the United States will always remain to be Las Vegas. For more prominent bookmakers are and it's a lead up to a Super Bowl. I always thought that one of the things that public wants to don't who's favored and by how many points, but that doesn't mean that everybody's going to bet that they're just interested in it as a as a point of. Reference. And that's what I always thought was a huge part of the of the sports gambling business. Cover more things my man and I'll get you out of here. You were talking about horse racing jockeys a moment ago, and I have never experienced anything in my career like standing on the race track at Churchill Downs a couple of weeks ago when that when that seven came off the tote board, and everything shifted, when the stewards, disqualified maximum security from the Kentucky Derby. I can't imagine what it must have been like in Vegas. What was the findings impact of that decision in Las Vegas, Nevada? Matia. It was. It was crazy. I thought when national security, I came down. Everybody was kind of stoned to tell you, the truth that I you know, normally like you have in March madness and there's a buzzer beater, somebody knocks down when you basket the, the room explodes that didn't happen with this. There was kind of there was kind of quiet. The, the horse player the daily horse player in Las Vegas. The majority never expected him to come down. Okay. But they felt that was because it was the Kentucky Derby, that they would leave him up, Ed and that seemed to be the opinion. I mean it went on for more than twenty minutes that seemed to be the opinion. There was not a lot of shouting and yelling. They were just waiting for it to become official, of course, more gutters, who have maximum security in, in the particular race. I've seen all the different angles as, as you have sent men. You know I, I find myself I find myself a green now with the stewards. However, I wish that they had a rule that they use an English source racy. I would not have dropped him all the way down to whatever wound up being sixty seventy play after the one of the horses interfered with it faded way back. I would have placed him no worse than third in that particular race, which they can do in England. I don't think under any circumstances. He would have faded out of the money. Yes, yes, it was a dangerous situation. World will believe it was first impact that, as he came out, you know, in the one angle, he did move out two or three lanes. But I but think it was it was more shock than maximum security came down than anything else to standing there real time on the track waiting and waiting and waiting and then. When that when that seven came off the board it, there was a noticeable. Audible gasp, that washed across the hundred sixty thousand people there. And I was looking at my producer, and she was looking at me, and we were like what in the hill just happened? And then the booze started to rain, down well, along with the rain and the mode, and it was just a it was chaos at that point, it was unlike anything I've ever covered. Speaking of great amazing moments that we've covered I would love to know. And I'll let you go after this, this'll be a hard one for you Brent. What is the greatest game you ever called? You know, Marty. I have never I can't decide that. I've been around too many. I've been around too many games. You know, there's a there's a song it includes allies country and western song, which I love to listen to out here, Montana that yesterday is dead and gone. So what I'm hopeful of is that when the Oakland Raiders play the Denver Broncos on that first Monday night game on ESPN radio, the raiders at that becomes the greatest NFL game that I've ever covered. Because I always concerned myself the most about tomorrow, because that's the only I could control. And I've been around so many great games in the past the two that I think that have appeared on television, the most so I'll give you the two that I get asked about the most. One, the famous hail Flutie, Doug Flutie in Boston College rallying against Miami. College football and the other was triple overtime in the NBA on a Friday night in Boston between the Phoenix Suns. The Boston Celtics game five of the finals, one by the by the Celtics and the three overtimes I get asked about that because they replayed the most. So I guess I would go back to those two simply because I get I get asked the most questions. I'll. Give you a close with anecdote about Flutie, because, as a result of that, of course, we became great friends because we've done so many shows together about the end of that football game. But. As it unfolded. In following the penalty and Doug pulled out to throw the final hail Mary pass into the end zone which was which was caught. I didn't realize I didn't know I couldn't tell who'd caught the football but I was fortunate enough to have a graduate of Boston College, and the truck his name was Kevin O'Malley. He was an executive at CBS. He knew a lot about broadcasting. And he reached over the producers shoulder, he pulled the talkback. He back and said Brent, it's falen Gerard falen to which if you listen to that, I don't believe it going on. And then maybe after a little time lapse. I throw in the name so Doug and I are doing a anniversary special on the play. And I tell him the anecdote that I just told you and he says to me Br. I tell you the truth. I didn't know who caught it. I said, come on, we should know. He said we after we collapsed on the field. And everybody's hugging, and we run off the Orange Bowl up into the tunnel. I've got the center, right next to me, and I said, who caught the ball and he goes, Doug? It was your roommate failing. Oh, it just just some of those little things that happened democrat moments in sports. Well, you absolutely are, are one of those soundtracks of my youth, growing up in into my professional career. And I will tell you this, I will leave you with this, one of the great moments of my professional life was two thousand seven. Greener than grass, I've never made television before in my life and I'm at Daytona. I'm in Daytona Beach, Florida and get on the elevator in hotel in Daytona Beach, Florida. And I'm scared as hail. And I don't know what I'm doing and into the elevator walks, Brent Musburger, and I'm on this elevator with this icon, and I'll know to say Hello. Did you shut up to show? Reverence detail me per sheet them, what are you, so I just kind of nodded my head and said, Hello, sir. My name's Marty Smith. I'm one of these reporters over here for ESPN and you whether you minute or whether it was true or not, man, you go. Oh, yeah. Martin. I know your work appreciate you work of read a lot of what you've done and the door opens. And I'm like, I'm in shock and you exit the elevator. And the first thing I did this was about a year before my daddy died. The first thing I did was I. Got off that elevator and I call my daddy and I said, man, you're not going to believe this Brent Musburger might have been lying to me. But I think he might know who I am. Daddy thought that was the coolest thing of all time. And I still do. So thank you. I know we were drudge brave Marty. I know who you were. I still follow you guys at ESPN. You know what I mean? Yeah, I know. And I appreciate it so much. And I know you're busy on. You've got a big day coming up here. So thank you so much. God bless you. And we appreciate your time and insight, sir. Thank you. Thanks a lot Martin. My man we'll talk to you down the road. You take care of Asir. Keep up the good work. Man. What a storyteller. I love it. Thanks so much to Brent. Forgiving me so much of his time, and thanks to ZipRecruiter. The reason you guys got to hear that is because of ZipRecruiter that interview was brought to you guys by ZipRecruiter dot com. Ziprecruiter, the smartest way to hire. I love what he just said there to close the interview about Doug Flutie Travis because you talk about iconic moments in college football history, something you and me or as passionate about as anybody on this planet is iconic college football moments. And he called the Doug Flutie hail Mary in the Orange Bowl against the Miami hurricanes. See, I knew that one that I knew that was going to be what he picked, because it's so iconic and it never gets old to here. I was hoping that he'd pick a couple of other games that I was slightly a little bias, too, because he's, you know, for me, he's the voice that I always hurt because he's always calling the highest state games and to stick out for me. One is. Versus purdue. Holy buckeye. And then when a highest beat the team up north that same year. His words were, let's party Columbus, when they punch their ticket to go national championship game. Those two those are two. I remember where I was for both of those games. I mean it's crazy. What I think about is course you weren't born yet, I think about being eight nine years old, and that just nasty Celtics Lakers rivalry in the NBA finals that seem to be staged annually in the Boston Garden and the great western forum and Brent Musburger called those things, along with Pat O'Brien was the sideline guy. And I just remember his his presence man, he commanded those moments seemed, so massive as a little boy, in the middle of nowhere Virginia with three channels on television and me. And daddy locked in on those. Games just with bated breath every single thing that was about to happen. You can it's those games of from my youth were so indelible. I mean I can Nate you got magic Karim Kurt Rambus Byron Scott, Michael Cooper, Michael Thompson, clay's dead. All those guys are, are in my mind, and that's, that's the Laker side. You know, you got bird, perish Dennis Johnson. Kevin McHale chief Bill Walton. Like I do I can remember it so well so vividly because it was so, so intense and Brent was right in the middle of those things, call those games. And I just just so cool to hear his perspective. And as I said to him there during the interview it just blow blew my mind, a head to call my dad and tell him. That man, I talked to Brit Musburger and daddy. I think that man might know who I am. Maybe. Wow. I've been very blessed with those kinds of moments in that one was special to me, and I appreciate his time. So I think I failed you and we've forgot one question to ask him, which now we just wanted to have to have him back on is where how did he come up with the you're looking live because that's the thing that's list. It's almo list a thought about it, but I wanted to get him out of there as quick as I could after asking them all that other stuff, because that's one of those ones, you know, that that's, that's his saying everybody hopes to have something like that. Like he's got one it's. Four of them, man. And you are looking live is certainly the most recognizable. So thanks. Brent learned a lot. He might be like, I mean, what are we got four or five straight guests? Now that we got to have a second installment. So we'll add him to that list, and we'll ask him about you're looking live now it's time to discuss something about which Travis or if not experts than we are at least well practiced. That's choke and beer. And this is brought to you by Tico T. So is the official watch of the NBA each one of T, so's time pieces delivers quality performance and traditional luxury. This is graduation season guys. So this graduation season. Make sure to get the NBA fan in your life t so watch the tea so krono XL is a great watch for those looking for a sporty krona graph with Swiss technology at an unbeatable price shop now at US dot T, so shop. Dot com. I've been forty three years old for a month now. Six weeks Travis still hadn't got me. Let's go on expert. They may be I just don't know what's going on, man. They like they are obviously invested in us. So all you gotta do make like your Tito's liquor. It's like vodka. Call the CEO of tesol and tell me one interview then we'll get some watch. But if not, we'll settle for a couple of watches. Yeah, you can say no. That's cool. Just send us a sin. The Sibusiso krono XL, two of them. That's all we're asking for. We do appreciate an all seriousness t-, so's belief in us and support us because look they support us so that we can keep this thing free for you guys so that you guys can listen and not have to pay to listen. So thank you so much to t-, so antipathy cruiser, now let's get chugging be. So mad already. So one thing that I've really enjoyed about the NBA finals is the fact that when they're playing Milwaukee, there's a Chuck and beer contest on the Jumbotron, and it has made the what's that offense of lineman's name Travis David about Yari? It's made him famous. I mean he's made it famous, he's everywhere, all over social media, Instagram, Twitter chugging, these beers, and I will tell you, my man could chug a beer. I mean it's gone right down the pipe man right down. Don't see you. So at game five in Milwaukee of the Eastern Conference finals, this started happening again on the Jumbotron. And so the Landman says naming and Travis David TRE that could be wrong. You David, so David is sitting right, beside Christian yelich? Right. And so, David pounds, down this beer and he looks over yelich yelich, chokes down his beer, and then they look across the court at Aaron Rodgers so Rogers, it's his turn to chug is beer. And Rogers is not impressed with yelich. He says, no, he only had a half a Cup. I'm not impressed by that. So then Rogers he chokes his beer. Well, I don't think the Matthew Stafford the Detroit Lions quarterback was very impressed with that. So they're the restaurant him and his wife and some buddies or whatever they put it on social media of Matthew panel down, his cO bear so that then led Travis in me to this debate that we've had for the last few days about what NFL quarterback would be the champion of Kobe chugging, and I have two on my list that I think will be in the finals. Not think it could be Baker Mayfield versus Josh L. Cleveland Browns against the Buffalo Bills makers bakers are good one to go with I mean, look bakers one hundred ten percent on everything Baker does. And so, I bet you Baker I'll bet Baker could do it. I'll bet he'd be really good at it, but Josh, Josh Josh's big old, boy, I'll bet he could. I'll bet he could erase a beer, real quick to I'm thinking of Josh on this one, I just feel like a little bigger guy. Being up in buffalo now with the bills mafia feel like that's kind of like a prerequisite. I assume that his combine or his special work out with the bills that they're like, listen. We don't care about your forty like what you're Chuck time, because our fans can't have some do just sipping on some Pino. We need a guy that's going to go out there and chug some beers. So that is our homework for you guys this week. Hopefully, some of you guys watch the last waltz your homework from last week this week we want you to send us a note on Twitter machine at Marty Smith. ESPN at Travis rock. Hold send us a note of why your quarterback will whoever your favorite team is why your quarterback should be in contention should be considered as the greatest beer, chugging among NFL signal. Did you see Aaron Rodgers as tweet afterwards? So he sent it to the bacteria, and he said, make it scotch next time. Oh, so he's gonna make him making some excuses. Also trying to say I'm a classy drinker here. I need, you know. Scott. Listen Aaron lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Green Bay, Wisconsin. They don't drink scotch. His diet should consumes bear town, beer cheese, Kurds. Yeah. So I think he should what he should do is, is look, the guy is in my opinion I think he's the best player in football. He blows my mind, man. The throws he makes the comebacks you know he's captain comeback. And so he is really, really good. If a ball he needs to up his game with a co bear in his hand. I Philip rivers might be a sneaky, just fear guy. He's a sneaky. Oh country. Boy, I bet he could pan onto like he wears a bolo. You can't wear a bolo without being able to chug beer. Does he wear a bolo? He always wears a bolo. He loves Bolos so that, that's awesome. Yeah. Loves his Bolos Richard petty wears a bolo should I start, incorporating a bolo into my repertoire, I don't know. It maybe depends on what the event, you're at all. Those both those are pretty. Do I think I will want an eighth grade basketball, Mr. McGraw coach girl, used to make us in eighth grade basketball, we had to wear our nicest clothes to school on game days, and we grew up in Paris Berkman? It's a bunch of country. Kids. We didn't have the nicest clothes, and I remember one day I laid out my clothes before I went to school. And I had like some navy pants like, you know, navy pleaded khaki pants whatever I had a purple shirt. Lavender shirt, I had some kind of paisley tie that was purple and green and blue and I thought it tied everything together, I was wrong. So I put away the tie and I went with the bolo so we did you have when I was like your dad's tie. It was my, you had a bolo tie that age. I think all of us I feel like it was a thing for the Spartan eighth. Grade basketball team back in one thousand nine hundred nine was this at the same time of your cornucopia bad decisions? Same era. So you're. Cornucopia bad decisions, plus a bolo. I, I assume you didn't have a girlfriend pretty solid. I had all kinds of girlfriends. What are you talking about? Man. I see let me think if I think about my girlfriend, I didn't have a girlfriend in eighth grade. No. I did not. I had no girlfriend. I wonder what the reason was in seventh grade. I'm pretty sure seventh grade. Seventh grade my little girlfriend will share Rackliff. She was a cheerleader on a Peirce Berg lines and I was a play for the pairs Berg lines. Pop more football team. And I don't know. I don't remember share let me hold her hand or not with the cornucopia of bad decisions. Probably not. I can't imagine the cornucopia, plus the Bulla was really attracting too many of them. But many thing about the cornucopia of bad decisions coupled with the lavender shirt and navy pants and probably I had on some old like cons. I probably, you know what I put up a thing, the other day, I'll put up a tweet the other day. I don't know what made me think of it, but I just got to thinking about my shoes when I was a kid and I had to Walter Payton kangaroos, I had to Walter pain kangaroos that were navy orange and white. They were the sweetness ruse, and they had a tongue pocket where you can put your milk money, and I probably had those on along with my navy pants, and my lavender shirt and my turquoise bolo tie. Now, this thing was sweet may, and it had like a turquoise, Jim thing in the middle and some silver on it back, end the Dicky's to be wearing to the Ronnie. Dunn. Be wearing that thing out to the show. Is this back when you were in Dickie's to oh, for sure? Oh yeah, man. Oh, yeah. Yeah. We whatever reason when we were throwing. Hey, we decided it was a good idea. Not to wear shirts. I am. I am you know what I call being ginger? Right. I call it. Ginger vitus. I'm here. I am. I got this ginger Vitus and you just burn to a crisp. And then you turn white, again it just doesn't make like I don't know what I was trying to prove man. I don't even know what to say. Yeah, I'm glad I left you speechless. All right. That means we meet on that amazing bit of idiocy was story time with and Travis brought to you about thi so t so the official watch of the NBA shop at US dot T, so shop dot com.

Did I did Alaska trip with my girlfriend we just broke it up a book that the trip and went to Alaska with a girl just broken up with a long time. I can't believe purcell about this and you still enjoyed the trip I did because it's so amazing. Shouldn't we be saving this gold radio gold for next week when we're on in Juneau Alaska for the lunch? Wasn't that good I mean yes todd did you know visiting? Okay. Juno Seton favor movie to as I recall. We're going to take power IGGY and the stooges. We're going to take that out in the Rio taty share. Yeah. We'll edit that out I was thinking about not saying. Let's workshop this. So we're ready to go for Judo Alaska because you get one shot at Juneau Alaska and I don't screw this up. Okay. Yes. We haven't you been to Alaska or with Ice Columbus Columbia and they're not the same thing they are not. They're really close but I went to British Columbia to go fly fishing and I wanted to go to Alaska to do that but the place we went to. was in British Columbia that's where you go in you. You have one of those seaplanes and you fly any land on the water. It was awesome. Yes. So what better way to make a debut in? Juneau then let's go fly fishing. Let's go land in that plane in the water. Let's go do all that stuff dude. Okay. First things first I reached out to Kabila and bass pro shops and I said, could you send up some fly fishing gear and I think that that's on its way? Yes. So we have to start you know baby steps to learn how to fly fish. I don't think any of you guys know how to fly fish. I think maybe just a cane pole would be the best thing for you guys. But if you guys are willing to try fly-fishing, then maybe we can do that. Got Kin imagine with Todd. Okay Waiters on get out there and. We are getting. Let's do I'm getting waiters for you guys. It's all about that. We're GONNA have fly fishing, and you're going to have waiters and that means you go into the water. Take orders for lunch no no not a waiter I don't know what you meant. The waiter. Yes he does not overweight or something I know that dude. Make waterwings todd like little puffy things shot that I have of going out in the water. That I can't have you out there we get baked. Alaska by the way we talk about desert. Why don't we get to celebrate the new film and I've never had baked? You're not lived. It's legit. It's so good. Is it better than tear me sue? Definitely I don't. Know. I'm I don't know if I could go home to my wife if I said that Baked Alaska was better than Tiramisu. Yes. mclovin by Thomas almost died of hypothermia in Long Island I don't know if you've. got. All. That's right. Andy? I had the chills and I didn't do a very good job of hiding. Now it was fifty two degrees and it was raining and we were on the set of Sandler movie. And so taught. How To do this they sat on a bus full of strange. Air Conditioner conditioning and he. Seems sitting next to me and I shoot my scene and then he's like Back. And I go. What is wrong it was. So. Cold and now there's a woman whose job is our wardrobe I said do you see that woman? She's eight feet away I don't know why I got so shy. I'm usually pretty outspoken and that was the woman to. So you normally go up and talk to all the women even though you shouldn't but chat him up never know what's going on like. So? so-called. I said Todd it it just it's raining in it's fifty two, and then he goes I'm going to. Go on the bus I. Love the thought process to by the way of someone who clearly ill, I mean his face was like just the PALEST. I've ever seen as his like he's. Coughing and the whole thing is like, all right. How am I going to go make myself better? You know I'm GonNa go sit on this bus full of strangers in air conditioning and air conditioning like no concern whatsoever about making everybody on their sick. He's just like I know they're on a trip or whatever. They're here for being extra. I'm just going to go sit on that and in fact, still cloak local. I walked on the bus to tell todd, we start shooting and and the buses on drivers keeping it on. So the people on the bus and the people in about that sweatshirts jackets. But for some reason, they actually pumpkin and if I didn't grab todd off that bus, he would have been like the Nicholson at the end of the shining. He'd be there today frozen solid. He would not know how to get out of that so. He said to you. The. Day of the air conditioning on on the bus I said, did you ask them to turn it off? No I didn't think that. I must I figured everyone must have want the conditioning who am I to tell them not to have the knowing. Complained about your wife wife says, you're so upset with him. I was because I guess trump three if I had to rank them of angriest you've been. handled that poorly on many levels but I got you this role a walk on role in his sandler movie. and. Was Very. Appreciative. I. Just I wasn't feeling one I should have done something more than i. was about the situation negative. Yes I don't know if you know this but Seni- had a speaking role in that movie that went away because of the rain there in that scene, we were sitting with Adam Sandler early in the day Fritzy and mclovin had to go to. Wardrobe and Seton IRA sitting there with Adam. He goes come in and have some bacon. He had a big plate of Bacon and we sat there for twenty minutes waiting for you guys to get your makeup and stuff on and he was I'm GonNa put you guys in the stands and you're GonNa be hecklers yours be heckling I. Think we're heckling you Dan you're the coach. And the week of and then the rain out happened. So they had to bump that scene to the next day and found two other yokels by the way the new Sandler movie that I'm in Huby Halloween, it comes out on Netflix tomorrow. And by all accounts got good reviews. I. Don't know if there's awards but. I'm the school principal and there's a food fight scene and so that comes out tomorrow. Yes. To give out like the Halloween Halloween related awards for like actors and Spooky Movie I. Don't know they should have that I play on every other word of awards. Halloween is you can get something. Okay. We'll. Maybe why don't you come up with the list and give out the todd for its Halloween a little Jack Lanta on the topic of like the Oscar head it's a pumpkin hit yes. Hey Todd Juno that wasn't terrible job. Basically idea to even try to got it. Okay. I got it. Also Amazon music this week, the podcast that scene is with David Spade the scene in Tommy boy it's called me I did a time. I'd like to tear me soup and the next ten minutes my life. Wearing throughout your show. David spade talking about the scene and Tommy boy where he and Chris Farley are in the car and they're picking tune singing. So that's Amazon music. That scene is the name of the pod yes. I did a tight went over pretty well. But getting that much left to do I know say the second time it loses but scenes crack it up he always God blessed. Like did arrive were not. Just got a new affiliate Geno, Alaska that's the whole. That's what we're trying to accomplish here. Don't make get mad. I'm just glad they the thing up there didn't come down. The thing eighteen give you that idea. So. Let's send it out to I did a todd, the thing the curtain is coming down on todd if you're watching right now. Did you ask for it. Yeah. There you go. You're watching we put the big curtain over the cone of silence there. Hey doing todd. I get very. Nervous with this whole thing how much longer does it have to be me? You. Know what I'm trying I'm pressing the button it. All there goes it works. You know I don't like. welcome to the program already in progress. You Got Lakers and the heat coming up tonight man I don't know of Jimmy Butler is ever gotten this much love. In the span of twenty, four, forty, eight hours. Jimmy Butler has gotten as much love. He's probably when you think about bubble. Love. Bubba the love sponges bubble love. The Phoenix Suns Got Some Bubble Love TJ Warren got some bubble of tyler hero got a couple of day. In fact, we started talking about tyler hero we got tyler hero t shirts sent to us by somebody and now Jimmy Butler Jimmy Butler. The one of the great triple doubles in the history of the NBA finals that could change tonight. Because Lebron might have himself Jimmy Butler. Triple double tonight. What's the betting line Lakers giving how many mclovin hat okay. But Lebron always has a triple double and we wouldn't care literally. Oh, I know. But because Jimmy Butler did it against Lebron that's why it's a big deal. I mean it's the NBA finals. But if he did this against the clippers, it would not have anywhere near the impact. But it is triple double against Lebron. Lebron and Lebron didn't play well in the fourth quarter. And he did say you're in trouble in the first quarter and I love Jimmy Butler came back and said Lebron. You're in in trouble. But do I expect Lebron and company to Anthony. Davis probably WON'T BE IN FOUL trouble. He'll probably have more shots than Marquee Morris and they might be shooting from three point range. I. Don't know Bam out of bio is coming back. I don't think Gordon Dragages coming back and I. Still expect the Lakers to be winning this. Yes. mclovin. How do you set a line if you don't know about Bam out of bio or is that really not that big a deal? I think Jimmy Butler. Game because van not a bio was not in the game. Because Bama's down low now Kelly Olympic is out so he makes Dwight. Howard on the floor like you change the whole rotation there and as much as I love. Bam Outta Bio Butler was able to go down low and they didn't have an answer for him. And so it changes a little bit and if Obama's not playing I, expect Butler to try to do the same thing take advantage of some mismatches but. You know you try to figure these things out. It's just different trying to figure it out in the bubble and you know you have a short turnaround period which I do like. Because I remember covering the NBA finals for the mothership and it'd be like. A game on Thursday and then there'd be a game on Sunday and then there be a game on Wednesday like it was just as long as you could drag this out they would now we had trouble back then. But. Game coming up tonight. and. Maybe game three was an aberration maybe the Lakers show up tonight. Maybe this series is about to get a whole lot more interesting. And from the outset that's all I wanted. I just wanted it I wanted people to be able to see the Miami heat and understand what a great story. They've been this season not having Gordon dragging and Bam out of bio. They're not gonna be able to see what this you know. That's true story of what what they were all about this year but Jimmy Butler is certainly getting a coming coming out party here. And also, we look back now member in Philadelphia dealing with. You know. Ben Simmons and Joel embiid those younger players. Any would be frustrated Minnesota. The same way got frustrated with the younger players there. And in Miami those players listened to him and I think that's been the big key. By the way Doc rivers was introduced yesterday the seventy sixers head coach and apparently doc is all in on that lineup in Philadelphia. Here's DOC. Rivers I love coaching, I. Absolutely. Love it but. Just anybody I can tell you that I was ready to take a break. When Elton Call it was an easy get on the plane and take a look for me in just you look at these players as young players and their potential fact, and they've had so much success in some ways at the ages that they are already I am where I believe they can go for me is job he just couldn't turn down and that's why I'm just really excited about it. I hope it goes well for him. It just kinda resembles a younger clippers to. Where I'm just not quite sure the star players. Certainly with Ben Simmons and. NHS. Joel embiid his commitment and then you've got some. Square pegs that you're trying to put in round holes and vice versa so Got A lot of money spent on that roster there last night the chiefs became the first team ever it opened up four no in four consecutive seasons. In prior to that streak, they had started for just three times in the franchise's first fifty, seven years and here's Mahomes he's won thirteen consecutive starts. If you include the postseason, he's thrown at least one touchdown pass in all thirteen games and that's a street that puts him up there with Aaron Rodgers Tom, Brady, Joe Montana, and Kenny Stabler. Perfect game but those are the Games that fascinate me. You know you can be thrown four touchdown passes no interceptions like Aaron. Rodgers. Did. But can you win a game where you might throw for one eighty, six, one touchdown, two picks and you beat equality opponent because you're going to have those games you know not everybody is going to be the Atlanta Falcons. and Rogers, did look great last night the team looked great. But this is a falcons team that is you know leaking leaking oil. Then what I saw with New England I truly believe if Cam Newton is in there, it's a different game. They may maybe a different outcome because that defense was they had a great game plan and I do believe every time check his face Patrick Mahomes. He has had a better performance from his defense each time so he's figuring it. The question is, do they get a shot at them in the playoffs but with Cam instead of Brian Hoyer? Jarret Stidham. Goes fifteen twenty, four, one interception, jared stem two interceptions there. You know where you're at a couple of mistakes they're adamant had the ball go through his hands with a Tyron Matthew got the ricochet there but I think you run the football and just have your secondary. Eight guys back there. Seven guys back and that's what he did. Last night don't blitz mahomes. And I think that's the game plan. The question is, is anybody going to be I still want to know and I'll sit corrected here on the show. If somebody wins a shootout with Patrick Mahomes. But if you say, Hey, they got a good secondary and they ran the football and limited number of chances on the field say, Yep, that's the way to do it. When the ball into elements hands I think Tyrone Matthew. Pick six I've must have got a dozen notes. How's your? Hall of Famer Now? And then you said, you mean Tyron Matthew Yeah. Yeah mclovin. Yeah. We all have I. don't know who came up with it but the whole show is labeled with element is a hall of Famer with isn't fair because we just brought it up as a discussion point. Yes. People were coming after you to. Your you're you're at the moment is a hall of fame and you've said, no no, he's not a hall of Famer. He's not he's not. Other people were wondering if he play quarterback again. I don't I don't I shouldn't get lumped in with this. I haven't led the charge. We bring these questions up and then what was the other question we brought up one time All the Mount Rushmore. And then everybody had their mount rush- like we just throw him out and then whatever you do with them, you know good luck. Have Fun. Yes. Time when you've often said the history of the Super Bowl can't be written or discussed without join Edmund some whether rightfully. So we're not take that as Julian Adam, and she'll be part of the hall of fame because of what he did in the super bowls and that should maybe make him I'm not saying you said it but it can be construed as he's a hall of Famer for what he's meant to the Super Bowl's in the national football league. That, clears it up. I'm trying to explain why. That you they think that you have them in. Canton with the bust. Because of that line. And can't write the history of the Super Bowl without joy that'll make you todd. What about not clear it up I know it's I understand why they think that but I never said he's a hall of Famer I said You can't tell the history of the NFL or the super bowl with algebra Ataman dot dot dot, and then you know people right are there are other players who had unbelievable super bowls but that doesn't mean they're hall of famers. Timmy Smith had a great one Larry. Brown had a great one. But that doesn't mean that they're going into the hall of fame. mclovin that's not fair to put Julia data. No, I know I know this is this is short notice here but don't you put you put all the great steelers teams you put all those dolphins like so you put all the Patriots Right. No no, it's different now. The. The numbers there? It's just different. It's what we expect out of a wide receiver Lynn Swann with those numbers doesn't get in now. So Lynn Swann is the element of this nannies and eighty. Yes. After missing two catchable balls last night against Kansas City Eshelman has eleven dropped passes since the start of last season, no other player has more than eight in that span. Instead of the days of the day that passed out of the days dad. Here comes that what stat of the? And I'm not piling on Julian Edelman. Does. It feel like I'm trying to distance myself from Julian Etem and being a hall of Famer. Yes. Polling all those drop passes. That's a show of loyalty for Tom Do. What's at the start of last season? Last season? Yeah. He was dropping some for Tommy. He actually ran Tom. Town. Thanks Julian. A busy day in baseball today. Tonight, we'll check in with mark grant the padres analyst been doing a long time. You imagine sitting through those games, all of those years when you knew that you weren't going to be good and here they are facing the dodgers postseason. So we'll talk to mark I mark grant not good. Harry Carey Impersonation. So maybe judge years time. I don't think I do a great one. No, you don't. Just get made fun of.

To get fired is Dan Quinn Matt Patricia Adam Gays. And take no joy in this but you start to look at one that I coaches fired. Then an owner feels like, okay it's okay if I'm the second owner to do that and I was told that Arthur blank did not want to be the first owner to fire his coach and Dan Quinn it feels like it's not a question of if but when Adam gays if it continue I, don't know how it gets better for the jets and the Lions that keep blowing leads so matt. Patricia Dan. Quinn. Adam gays the probably be one maybe one or two more coaches that might. Vacancies there and Eric beyond the Kansas City chiefs offense coordinator's going to have his choice of jobs. They're more phone calls coming up. He spent twenty five seasons as the Padres TV color analyst, the former Major League pitcher. Mark Grant joining us. Now I pitch padres dodgers LDS. Game One is tonight at nine thirty eastern been a long time mark now are you? A. Long. Time. The. Bengal the postseason exact. I watch baseball women would so bad. I had a six pack before. John Green Apples the Chicago cubs will not the world series this year. How's it going? Dayton. Flyer Buddy. Dan It's been. It's been a long time my friend how are you? I'm doing great. Now while you're doing your Harry Carey Todd, Fritz has been working on a I. At all for Bobby. Bottles. Did you ever meet Harry Carey. I did and it was. I grew up Joliet. Illinois. You're very much familiar with that. Now everybody says you know you're. The product of your environment. Well, I believe you're also product your sports environment I grew up listening to Jack Accurate. In Harry. Carey. Well, Dan guess what kind of announce around going to be if I if I become an right, I'm going to be a homer. self-proclaimed I loved my Padres I love the game of baseball. But then again, you know you got to be critical about your team to and believe me there's been a lot of that over the years but I love my. FRYERS. I'm so happy to be in the playoffs this year. Bobble head over your shoulder. Too Small bobblehead. Can you guess who it isn't it is too small. Okay do you want me to bring it up over your? Yeah you can bring it up because they see all your pictures and everything. Yeah Yeah. I don't have a lot of baseball memorabilia, my house by the way of sport my Slab Yego shirt. You don't. You don't have many baseball memories worth having. What He's got a picture of somebody of behind third race by the DUGOUT backing up third. That's how we. What is your favorite baseball memory like just give the audience an idea of quality of play. You. Know I had at one, two, three, eight back in hundred. And it was game at Jack Murphy Stadium. It was. The most exciting. It was like an eight pitch innings well. Strike. Would couple of ground balls at GM shot the first Baseman who how many hall of Famers do the You struck out in your career? One that comes to mind is. Okay. You ask any pitcher numbers and they're going to remember numbers I, remember some numbers the one that really sticks out Ozzie Smith was to for twenty off me so. I mean I got Ozzie Smith. Obviously he was known for his glove. Fever that Or the time. So I I guess I can't remember I know probably your staff there has all stats like, did you face bonds? Did you face Maguire face? Good question I fixed. Barry. Bonds and you never had a home run hit like four sixty five. But you kept him in the Ballpark and you know what he I remember I was announcing Mike I five or six years whatever in Berry was the giants and I told Hey I own, you never hit a home run. So somebody said, he goes I'll bet you a dollar I hit a home run off I said, okay. You're. So the statistician back then there was no internet. So they check numbers, no home runs, but four, sixty, five whatever was. So he gave you the dollar bill he signed it he goes I only force. Averaged no home runs so that stuff's pretty cool I the padres kind of captured people's imagination here. You got a lot of young talent there. I'm curious Mark Grant Pitcher as opposed to mark grant the homer for the Padres, how you would react to tease hitting hitting a Grand Slam and having a bat, flip. As a pitcher. would. Be. Quite if I was out there pitching, it would probably. Just timing. You'd probably tick me off no doubt about it but as I've grown older and Balder and fatter I think that these unwritten rules sometimes are kind of just tearing up throwing away the game has changed so much and you know that I mean the entertainment value the old and they'll be added it let the kids play I'm I'm all for it. I don't think Fernando or anybody is really showing up a pitcher. It's the excitement of the game I mean let's face it the media we have these days. has these guys every single moment watching what they're doing when they're at that went around the river. So my in fact, we talked about this the facts when Fernando did that. I said Mike my bottom line was as a pitcher now picks better. What are we supposed to do three? You know just hitters to lay down the bat and then give the hitter a free strike and then just Late. In the pitcher free right now it's three in one. Makes that really really good pitch. You kind of take the knees opie. Now it's three two hour. I'm really project in rural something over whatever. So my my philosophy is bottom line. It's better making better kits three. You know I love it. I think you have to attract a whole new generation here. Now I don't want it to be gimmicky, but let's have some. People I don't think there's enough celebrating the game itself and. Old School Hey. These are the rules or the unwritten rules and I loved what Taty did I think it's organic I really do and when you look around baseball Dan I think a lot of it is organic because the guys are. Would you know these guys to? It's very, very important to know that it is organic or not just making this up. I want to know where it's written to where you know times have changed no doubt about it but I want to know where it's written that baseball was a tennis match where was a game to where you're supposed to? Proper and you know I'm all about not suit up the opponents don't don't give me rob showing emotion that's a huge part, and you're absolutely right with this crop of talent that we have especially at speaking Sandiego Manny Machado, Fernando, taty junior the whole shooting match I mean it's it's about time toward these guys. She'd show some show emotion and you know when a guy hits a home run and he backflips and he looks at his teammates in the dugout and does the fist pump whatever the case maybe. Fans loved that I've loved that it's the motion of the game in I have no problem. How the Padres beat the dodgers. Well, it's going to have to be well first of all the pitching a big question mark. Any baseball fan out who's been watching the Nelson limit my clever. CLOVINGER hasn't pitched since the twenty third there's a chance that he might start. lament hasn't since the twenty fifth September September. So I think the Chili Co for the poverty the starting pitching not question about that. There were six four against the dodgers year. How did they beat him? They beat Bueller earlier this year they beat Kershaw once you're GONNA have to grind out at bats. I know it sounds like a lot of shades but these guys are good pitchers. Let's face it the dodgers when you look at their pictures when healthy got really good pitchers it's going to be tough to be I. Think one of the Games is going to be possible for the padres how about that nine pitchers in the game major league record one of them probably going to be slugfest. The teams can't give Kershaw dealer but avoid the strikeouts I. think that's one thing Dan I remember Gosh. You talked about Watson bad baseball for many years might goodness. Over the course of some seasons after a ballgame, there would be counter four innings of strikeouts. Four innings of pottery hitters striking out that is not fun the call. To Watch did you cry when they clinched a playoff spot? I got a little emotional. Yeah did and I'll tell you why I'll tell you why. After watching so many all first of all, wearing the uniform for three years and living here, San Diego and having the the Gig that I. Do have you grow attached to your team and I was sick and tired Of the dodgers coming into town in chicken are you know what's around kicking their? You know what I'm not on the team but I say our. I was sick and tired of the cardinals come into town. I was seeing you get the idea I was sick and tired of people. Treating the poverty is like doormat of the National League come in and say Oh yeah, we'll sweep and three games. Are you know we'll be in their bullpen in the third inning which was true. Sick and tired of. And it was goes accumulation of everything. Mo More for the fans that have endured such rule baseball over the years very lean years to finally have something to cheer about in. All of a sudden just Kinda. Got To me and it was like Gosh that family in Lamesa that's been found the poverty since the. That family escondido that's been loving the poverty since nineteen seventy, the you know where I'm going with this. So it was an accumulation everything wearing the uniform getting their butts kicked, and finally get a chance to go to the postseason since two thousand, six inches, kind of all hitting. So and if you're watching on peacock mark grant has got some things in the background there but you're one of the I guess now who? Who is that? That is. Dwayne Kuyper. Oh, the famous broadcaster they're doing Kuyper. dwayne is probably my dearest friends based might light hitting doing Kuyper. tweet hyper one homerun. Off. A C. Stonier Cleveland. But I do love that you got. You Got Polka like A. Sticks there but you don't have a pool table which is interesting in your man Cave there I guess a nice little touch that it looks like you have a pool table. Have a pool table tennis cropped up on three colors right now it's OK mark I I understand you look. You don't have you don't have A. I'm actually sitting in all stadium seats from old Comiskey Park back in Chicago the remember the green wooden. Yeah. So anyway, that's about the only thing I have this is the only baseball thing I have in my house trae doing hyper bobblehead doll. The. Hitting Second Baseman, the Captain Duane Kuyper so.

Aaron. was asked that he asked too since they're heading into a bye week but he can't travel because of covid and what did Rogers think about that? He said it sucks totally sucks obviously, it is what it is. Especially as an older player I look forward to buy weeks it is what it is. We'll be here we'll make the most of it, but it sucks now in most years, Rogers would be able to travel and during a bye week there. But the NFL players sociation agreed on a new policy that requires players to stay in their home cities during their bye week. So they can be tested daily to limit any potential outbreaks. I understand it. Part of the game plan. Here. Can't let everybody travel all over the country during the bye week probably not a lot to do in Green Bay. During the bye week. I think that's what Aaron is saying fritzy goes is Aaron Rodgers taking a shot at Green Bay and I went. I don't know socks I gotta stay here in Green Bay what I usually go on a fishing trip I don't know if he's saying it sucks because I have to stay here. It sucks because I can't go someplace else. Team. You know he'd get a mini vacation out of this. So I don't know if he's saying after all these years. Now he says that sucks and Green Bay during a bye week after that Jordan love pick all of sudden Howard on the. Whole city. Yeah. If Jordan Love wasn't in Green Bay than it would be fine awesome that I had to stay here and I can't go We just came up with a question. And I don't know what the answer is but. Do Do. You have a policy when it comes to who your partner has dated before? So prior to getting married And seton and mclovin and I were on the basketball floor just talking about this now I I don't WanNa know anything. There's there's there's nothing good that can come out of it. But Even when you first meet I I don't want to know you know, hey, where you almost engage engage any. I don't want to know anything about. You have a policy. That we did have a policy. But I mean I know? We've all had a life before that I mean, we've talked about people that we've dated sort of conversation but how does it come up in conversation? To. Pens like sometimes you're like Andrew Andrew, Kissel, the story about how he traveled to. Juneau. Alaska and I went there with an x want yeah you know I mean that's a pretty natural thing. What does your wife? Did you tell your wife about going to Juneau Alaska mclovin with his girlfriend no. But I would and she you know what you have kids I feel like that part of your life has gone. So it's okay to talk about man melting so Paulie, you gotTA policy. I I like to know nothing I do nothing. I? Don't talk a lot about mine. I had a situation once where We took I took my daughter to daycare my young daughter, very young when you're old. And one of the other MOMS dropping similar one year old daughter of a daycare was a girl I used to hang out with. Quite a bit. And before I met my wife so now. The. Circles got the. Intertwined. Did you tell your wife that you dated her? Yes, I was forthcoming. But it's you don't want any part of it. You WanNa know hers she doesn't WanNA mind. It can't can. There's nothing good that comes out with. Typically No. Typically. No nothing good. Comes out of it todd. I'm a bit insecure if you guys just met me so I'll take a walk down memory lane out loud without my wife asking for any questions about what's going on in my not that I was Gigolo and had some great past but does she do the same? She does not because again, she's more secure and she doesn't need to do that. But I will say that's about a week or so ago. My daughter saw some old picture. From some book I don't know what kind of book she's keeping, which is like who is that boy or Guidon next year my boyfriend Mike back in high school and then I hear my daughter say he was really cute and that was necessarily shot at me but I don't need to hear my daughter talking about that. There's some good looking ex-boyfriend that my wife when I with high school. So that was in high school was still strange. I that's not bad. I mean, if it was like Oh, Hey who's this? WHO's this guy next to you like? Oh. That's Jim the billionaire that I dated just before your father then you'd be like Oh Dang that's sucks. Now you're stuck with me and you could've been with Jim the billionaire I wonder why Jim the billionaire didn't work out that must be really tough break for you honey but what do you want for dinner? That sucks for your high school boyfriend at a certain point Gabby like an adult that's have to clean out your scrapbooks in just make sure that there's no remnants of anything if you have like an old being with notes and stuff and pictures letters from an axe landicho who will be found ballantine's Kharj. Let it go I still have that play that had the veggies on it from Simone ships at bay there and throwing that played out that had the little croutons now does your wife ever played i? She told me not to open. Under the lamp on the side of the bet I'm not allowed to tell you that I don't know what's going on. final. Hour coming up. He's by Carmen.

You've been to Juno I did I did Alaska trip with my girlfriend. We just broken up but book that. Trip and went to Alaska with a girl I just broken up with a long time. I can't believe occasional purcell about this and you still enjoyed the trip I did because it's so amazing. Shouldn't we be saving this gold radio gold for next week when we're on in Juneau Alaska for the launch. Wasn't that good I mean yes. Todd did you know visiting? Okay. Juno is in favor movie to as I recall. We're going to take power in the stooges we're going to take that out in the Rio taty share. Yeah. We'll edit that out I was thinking about not saying let's workshop this. So we're ready to go for Judo Alaska because you get one shot at Juneau Alaska and I don't screw this up. Okay. Yes. haven't you been to? Alaska or with is Columbus Columbia and they're not the same thing they are not. They're really close but I went to British Columbia to go fly fishing and I wanted to go to Alaska to do that but the place we went to. was in British Columbia. That's where you go in. You have those seaplanes and you fly any land on the water. It's. It's it was awesome. Yes. You what better way to make a debut in Juneau? Then let's go fly fishing. Let's go land in that plane in the water. Let's go do all that stuff dude. Okay. First things first I reached out to Kabila and bass pro shops and I said, could you send up some fly fishing gear and I think that that's on its way? Yes. So we have to start you know baby steps to learn how to fly fish. I don't think any of you guys know how to fly fish. I think maybe just a cane pole would be the best thing for you guys. But if you guys are willing to try fly-fishing, then maybe we can do that. Got A cadged with todd okay. Waiters on get out there and the water we are getting. Let's do I'm getting waiters for you guys. It's all about the we're going have fly fishing and you're going to have waiters and that means you go into the water todd. Take orders for lunch. No No. No I don't know what you meant. The waiter. Yes he does not overweight or something I know that dude. Make waterwings todd like little puffy things shot that I have of going out in the water. That I can't have you out there. We get Baked Alaska by the way we talk about here and Why don't we get to celebrate the new film and I've never had baked Alaska. You're not lived. It's legit. It's so good. It's better than tear me sue definitely. I don't know. I don't know I'm I. Don't know if I could go home to my wife if I said that Baked Alaska was better than Tiramisu. Yes. mclovin by Thomas almost died of hypothermia in Long Island I don't know if you've. Gone. All that's right. Andy I had the chills and I didn't do a very good job of hiding now up it was fifty two degrees and it was raining and we were on the set of Sandler movie. And so taught. Really, how to do this? They sat on a bus full of strange. Air Conditioner conditioning and he Seems sitting next to me and I, shoot my scene and then he's like. And I go what is wrong it was So cold, and now there's a woman whose job is our wardrobe and I said, do you see that woman? She's eight feet away I don't know why I got so shy I'm usually pretty outspoken and that was the woman to. So you normally go up and talk to all the women even though you shouldn't but chat them up and you never know what's going and then he's like. So cold. I said Todd it it just it's raining in it's fifty two, and then he goes I'm going to. Go on the bus I. Love the thought process to by the way of someone who clearly ill mean his face was like just the Palest I've ever seen as his like he's. Coughing in the whole thing is like, all right how am I going to go make myself better? You know I'm GonNa. Go sit on this bus full of strangers in air conditioning and air conditioning like no concern whatsoever about making everybody on their sick he's just like, Oh, I know they're on a trip or whatever. They're here for being extra I'm just going to go sit on that and in fact, stoke local. Yes. I walked on the bus to tell todd we start shooting and and the buses on drivers keeping it on so the people on the bus and the people in about sweatshirts jackets. But for some reason they actually pumpkin and if I didn't grab todd off that bus, he would have been like the Nicholson at the end of the shining. He'd be there today frozen solid. He would not know how to get out of that. He said to you. Day of the air conditioning on on the bus I said, did you ask them to turn it off? No, I didn't think of that. I must I figured everyone must have want the conditioning i. who am I to tell them not to have the knowing? Complained about your wife wife says you so upset with him I was because I guess top three if I had to rank them of angriest you've been. I handled that poorly on many levels but I got you this role a walk on role in his sandler movie. And a very appreciative I. Just I wasn't feeling one I should have done something more than I was about the situation negative. Yes, I. Don't know if you know this but Seni- had a speaking role in that movie that went away because of the rain there in that scene we were sitting with Adam Sandler earlier in the day a fritzy and mclovin had to go to. Wardrobe and Seton IRA sitting there with Adam he goes come in and have some bacon. He had a big plate of Bacon and we sat there for twenty minutes waiting for you guys to get your makeup and stuff on and he was I'm GonNa. Put you guys in the stands and you're GONNA be hecklers yours be heckling I. Think we're heckling you Dan, you're the coach. And the week of. The rain out happened. So they had to bump that scene to the next day and they found two other yokels by the way the new Sandler movie that I'm in. Huby Halloween it comes out on Netflix tomorrow. And by all accounts got good reviews. I don't know if there's awards but. I'm the school principal and there's a food fight scene and So that comes out tomorrow. Yes. Ta give out like the Halloween Halloween related awards for like actors and Spooky Movie. I don't know they should have that I play on every other word of awards, Halloween as you can get some. Okay. Well, maybe you up the list and give out the Todd Fritz. Halloween a little Jack landed on the topic of like the Oscar head it's like Pumpkin hit yes. Hey Todd Juno that wasn't terrible job. We have basically idea even try to got it. Okay. I got it. Also Amazon music this week the podcast that scene is with David Spade the scene in Tommy boy it's called me I, did a time. I'd like to tear me soup and the next time in my life back. Wearing throughout your show. David spade talking about the scene and Tommy boy where he and Chris Farley are in the car and they're picking tune singing. So that's a Amazon music. That scene is the name of the podcast? Yes. I did a tight went over pretty well. But getting that much left to do I know at the second time it loses but scenes crack it up he always God blessed. Like did arrive, we're not I. Just got a new affiliate Geno Alaska. That's the whole. That's what we're trying to accomplish here. Don't make get mad. I'm just glad they the thing up there didn't come down I'm GonNa just yet the thing it didn't give you that idea. Yeah. So Let's send it out to I. Did a todd, the thing the curtain is coming down on todd if you're watching right now. You ask for. Yeah. There you go. You're watching we put the big curtain over Todd, the cone of silence there. Hey. Doing. Todd. I get very. Nervous. With this whole thing, how much longer does it have to be on me? You know what I'm trying I'm pressing the button it all no. There goes. It works. You know I don't like. welcome to the program already in progress. You Got Lakers and the heat coming up tonight man. I don't know of Jimmy Butler is ever gotten this much love. In, the span of twenty, four, forty, eight hours. Jimmy Butler has gotten as much love. He's probably when you think about bubble. Love. Bubba the love sponges bubble. Love. The Phoenix Suns Got Some Bubble Love TJ Warren got some bubble of tyler hero got a couple of day. In fact, we started talking about tyler hero we got tyler hero t sent to us by somebody and now Jimmy Butler Jimmy Butler. The one of the great triple doubles in the history of the NBA finals that could all change tonight. Because Lebron might have himself Jimmy. Butler triple. Double tonight. What's the betting line Lakers giving how many mclovin hat okay. But Lebron it always has a triple double and we wouldn't care literally. Oh, I know. But because Jimmy Butler did it against Lebron that's why it's a big deal. I mean it's the NBA finals. But if he did this against the clippers, it would not have anywhere near the impact. But it is triple double against Lebron. Lebron and Lebron didn't play well in the fourth quarter. And he did say you're in trouble in the first quarter and I love Jimmy Butler came back and said Lebron. You're in trouble. But do I expect Lebron and company to Anthony Davis probably WON'T BE IN FOUL trouble. He'll probably have more shots than more kief Morris and they might be shooting from three point range. I don't know Bam out of bio is coming back. I don't think Gordon. Dragages coming back and I still expect the Lakers to be winning this. Yes. mclovin they how do you set a line if you don't know about Bam out of bio or is that really not that big a deal? I think Jimmy Butler. Game because van, not a bio was not in the game. Because Bama's down low now, Kelly Olympic is so he makes so you can't have Dwight Howard on the floor like you change the whole rotation there and as much as I love. Bam Outta Bio Butler was able to go down low and they didn't have an answer for him. And so it changes a little bit and if Obama's not playing I expect Butler to try to do the same thing, take advantage of some mismatches but. You know you try to figure these things out. It's just different trying to figure it out in the bubble and you know you have a short turnaround period which I do like. Because I remember covering the NBA finals for the mothership and it'd be like. There's a game on Thursday and then there'd be a game on Sunday and then there be a game on Wednesday like it was just as long as you could drag this out. They would now we had trouble back then. But Game coming. Up. Tonight. And maybe game three was an aberration. Maybe the Lakers show up tonight maybe this series is about to get a whole lot more interesting. and. From the outset, that's all I wanted. I just wanted it I wanted people to be able to see the Miami heat and understand what a great story. They've been this season not having Gordon dragging and Bam out bio. They're not gonna be able to see what this you know. That's true story of what what they were all about this year but Jimmy Butler is certainly getting a coming coming out party here. And also, we look back now member in Philadelphia dealing with. You Know Ben Simmons and Joel embiid those younger players. Any would be frustrated Minnesota. The same way got frustrated with the younger players there. And in Miami those players listened to him and I think that's been the big key by the way Doc rivers was introduced yesterday the seventy sixers head coach and apparently doc is all in on that lineup in Philadelphia Here's Doc Rivers I love coaching I absolutely love it. Coach anybody I can tell you that I was ready to take a break. When Elton all it was an easy get on the plane and take a look for me and just when you look at these players as young players and their potential fact that they've had so much success in some ways at the ages that they are already and where I believe they can go for me is is a job. He just couldn't turn down and that's why I'm just really excited about it. I. Hope it goes well for him. It just kinda resembles a younger clippers. Where I'm just not quite sure the star players. Certainly with Ben Simmons and some limitations, Joel embiid his commitment, and then you've got some you know square pegs that you're trying to put in round holes and vice versa so. Got A, lot of money spent on that roster there last night the chiefs became the first team ever it opened up four no in four consecutive seasons. In prior to that streak, they had started for just three times in the franchise's first fifty, seven years and here's Mahomes. He's won thirteen consecutive starts. If you include the postseason, he's thrown at least one touchdown pass in all thirteen games, and that's a street that puts him up there with Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Joe Montana and Kenny Stabler. Game. But those are the Games that fascinate me you know you can be thrown four touchdown passes no interceptions like Aaron Rodgers did. But can you win a game where you might throw for one eighty, six, one touchdown, two picks and you beat equality opponent because you're going to have those games you know not everybody is going to be the Atlanta Falcons. and Rogers did look great last night the team looked great. But this is a falcons team that is you know leaking leaking oil, and then what I saw with New England I truly believe if Cam Newton is in there, it's a different game they maybe a different outcome because that defense was they had a great game plan and I do believe every time check his face Patrick mahomes he has had a better performance from his defense each time so he's figuring it. The question is, do they get a shot at them in the playoffs but with Cam instead of Brian? Hoyer. Jarret Stidham. Hoyer goes fifteen, twenty, four, one interception, jared stem two interceptions there. You know where you're at a couple of mistakes they're adamant had the ball go through his hands with a tyron. Matthew got the ricochet there but I think you run the football and just have your secondary. Eight guys back there. Seven guys back and that's what he did. Last night. Don't blitz mahomes. And I think that's the game plan. The question is, is anybody going to be I still want to know and I'll sit corrected here on the show. If somebody wins a shootout with Patrick Mahomes. But if you say, Hey, they got a good secondary and they ran the football and limited number of chances on the field say, yeah that's the way to do it. When the ball into elements hands I think Tyrone Matthew. Pick six. I've must have got a dozen notes. How's Your Hall of Famer Now? And then you said, you mean Tyron Matthew. Matthew mclovin. Yeah. We all have I. don't know who came up with it but the whole show is labeled with element is a hall of Famer isn't fair because we just brought it up as a discussion point yes. People were coming after you to. Your, you're you're at the moment is a hall of Famer and you've said, no no, he's not a hall of Famer. Is Not. He's not. Other. People were wondering if he played quarterback again. I don't I don't. I shouldn't get lumped in with this. I haven't led the charge. You know we bring these questions up and then what was the other question we brought up one time All the Mount Rushmore. And then everybody had their mount rush- like we just throw him out and then whatever you do with them you know good luck. Have Fun. Yes. Time when you've often said, the history of the Super Bowl can't be written or discussed without join Edmund some whether rightfully. So we're not take that as Julian and she'd be part of the hall of fame because of what he did in the super bowls and that could maybe make him I'm not saying you said it but it can be construed as he's a hall of Famer for what he's meant to the Super Bowl's in the national football league. That clears it up. I'm trying to explain why. That you they think that you. Haven't been canton with the. Bust. Because of that line. And can't write the history of the Super Bowl without joy that'll make you todd. What about not clear it up I know it's I understand why they think that. But I never said he's a hall of Famer I said, you can't tell the history of the NFL or the super bowl with Algeria Ataman, dot dot dot, and then you know people right There are other players who had unbelievable super bowls but that doesn't mean they're hall of famers. Jimmy. Smith had a great one. Larry Brown had a great one but that doesn't mean that they're going into the hall of fame. Yes. mclovin. That's not fair to put Julia data. No I know I know this is this is short notice here but don't you put you put all the great steelers teams you put all those dolphins like so you put all the Patriots Right. No no, it's different now. The. The numbers there. It's just different. It's what we expect out of a wide receiver Lynn Swann with those numbers doesn't get in now. So Lynn Swann is settlement of this nannies and eighty. Yes. After missing two catchable balls last night against Kansas City Element has eleven dropped passes since the start of last season, no other player has more than eight in that span. Stat of the days of the day that passed out of the day stat of the day. Here comes that what stat of the? And I'm not piling on Julian. Edelman. Does it feel like I'm trying to distance myself from Julian Etem and being a hall of Famer. Yes. Polling all those drop passes. That's a show of loyalty for Tom, do. What's at the start of last season? Last season? Yeah. He was dropping some for Tommy. He actually ran Tom Outta town. Thanks. Julian.

Patricia Adam Gays. And I take no joy in this but you start to look at once that I coaches fired. Then an owner feels like, okay it's okay if I'm the second owner to do that and I was told that Arthur blank did not want to be the first owner to fire his coach and Dan Quinn, it feels like it's not a question of if but when Adam gays if it continue I, just don't know how it gets better for the jets. And the Lions Keep Blowing leads so Matt Patricia Dan, Quinn Adam. Gays. They'll probably be one maybe one or two more coaches that might Vacancies there and Eric the enemy, the Kansas City chiefs offensive coordinator's going to have his choice of jobs. They're more phone calls coming up. He has spent twenty five seasons as the Padres TV, color analyst, the former Major League pitcher mark. Grant joining us now I, pitch padres dodgers. Game One is tonight at nine thirty eastern. Ben. A time mark how are you? I hang to. Times. The padres Bengal the postseason, Zach. Watch, pobably baseball women were so bad I had six pack before sex injury and. John Green Apples Chicago cubs will not greedy in the world series this year. How's it going Dayton Flyer Buddy Dan, it's been a it's been a long time friend. How are you? I'm doing great. Now while you're doing your Harry Carey Todd Fritz has been working on. Should around me at all grow for Bobby Word. Did you ever meet Harry Carey. I did and it was I mean. I grew up in Joliet Illinois and you're very much familiar with that. Now everybody says, you know you're a product of your environment. Well, I believe you're also product of your sports environment I grew up listening to Jack Akwa Kaos. In Harry Carey well, guess what kind of announcer I'm going to be if I if I become an right? I'm going to be a homer and you know I was self proclaimed. PADRES. I love the game of baseball. But then again, you know you to be critical by your team to and believe me there's been a lot of that over the years I. Love I love my fryers. So happy to being in the playoffs this year you got a bobble head over your shoulder. Yeah. That's up to small bobble head. Can you guess. Is a too small. It's too small. OCCA- to bring it up. Bring it up because I see all your pictures and every day yeah. Yeah. I don't have a lot of baseball. My House by the way in sport my slam Diego Shirt. Well, you don't. You don't have many baseball memories worth having. Know what. Somebody's got a picture of somebody behind third base by the DUGOUT backing up third. That's how. That is your favorite baseball memory like just give the audience an idea of quality of play. I had one two three back in one, thousand, nine, hundred. August, and it was. At Jack, Murphy Stadium, it was unable as. Inciting was like an eight pitch inning as well. Thank, Strike A. Couple of ground balls, GM shot the first basement, who how many hall of Famers do you think you struck out in your career? one that comes to mind is you know. You. You ask any pitcher numbers and they're going to remember numbers I remember some numbers the one that really sticks out Ozzie Smith was to for twenty off me so. I mean I struck out. Ozzie Smith. Obviously. He was known for his glove. Feed, for that. But I I can't remember Dan I know. You're staff. Did. You face bonds? Did you face Maguire facing good question I faced? Barry bonds and you never get a home run off get like four, sixty five. But you can't fame in the ballpark and what he I remember. Announcing I five or six years whatever in Berry was the giants and I told Hey I own you never hit a home. So so somebody said, I'll bet he goes I'll bet you dollar hit a home run off I said okay you're on. So the statistician back then there was no internet so they check numbers no home runs but four, sixty, five whatever was so he gave you the dollar bill and he signed it he goes I own you foresee average no home runs. So that's pretty cool I the padres kind of captured people's imagination here you got a lot of young talent there. I'm curious mark grant the pitcher. As opposed to mark grant the homer for the Padres, how you would react to tat tease hitting hitting a Grand Slam and having a bat flip. As a PITCHER WOULD Be. Quite. Often if I was out there pitching, it would probably. Distraught my timing you'd probably took me off no doubt about it. But as I've grown older and Balder and fatter, I think that these unwritten rule sometimes are Kinda just tear them up throwing away the game has changed so much Dan you know that I mean the entertainment value, you know the old and they'll be. Let the kids play. I'm all I'm all for it. I don't think Fernando or anybody is really showing a pitcher. It's the excitement of the game I mean, let's face it the media we have these days just has these guys every single moment watching what they're doing one at Monroe on the. Model River. So in fact, we talked about this after the fact when Fernando did that. I said, might my bottom line was as a pitcher now? Picks better. What are we supposed to do? Three Oh just hitters just supposed to lay down the bat and then give the hitter a free strike and then just Lay It in give the picture of free strike. Now it's three one. Now he makes that really really pitch you kind of take it at the knees up. Now it's three, two hour I do I'm really protected role something over you know whatever. So it might my flask via bottom line. Pitch Better make a better pitch three now I love it I think you have to attract a whole new generation here. Now I also I don't want it to be gimmicky but let's have some I. Don't know if people I don't think there's enough celebrating the game itself and it feels like old school hey, these are the rules or the unwritten rules I loved what Taty did. I. Think it's organic I really do and when you look around Baseball Dan, I think a lot of it is organic because the guys and once you get to know these guys to it's very, very important to know that that it is organic or not just making this up and I want to know where it's written to where you know times have changed no doubt about it. But I want to know where it's written that baseball was a tennis match where was a game where you're? Supposed to be a proper and you know I'm all about natural one of the don't get me wrong but showing emotion that's a huge. You're absolutely right with this crop of talent that we have especially at speaking San Diego Manny Machado for Taty junior the whole shooting match it's it's about time towards these guys. She'd show some show some emotion and You know when a guy hits a home run and backflips and he looks at his teammates in the dugout and does he ought fist pump. Fans loved that I loved that it's the motion of the game in. I have no problem with it. How do the Padres beat the dodgers? Well, it's going to have to be well first of all the pitching is a big question mark. Any baseball fan out who's been watching the Nelson limit my clemenger cleven hasn't pitched the twenty third. There's a chance that he might get a start. Lament, hasn't Pistons the twenty fifth of September. So I think the the Kelly seal for the poverty is the starting pitching. There's no question about that. There were six and four against the dodgers this year. How did they beat him? They beat Bueller earlier this year they beat Kershaw wants this year they're gonNA grind out at Bats I. Know it sounds like a lot of cliches but these guys are pitchers let's face it the dodgers when you look at their pitchers when healthy they got really good pitchers It's GONNA be tough to be I. Think one of the game is going to be possible bullpen gave for the padres. How about that means nine pitchers in the game major league record one of them probably going to be a slugfest. The teams can't give to Kershaw King Bueller, but avoid the strikeouts I. think that's one thing Dan I remember Gosh you talked about watching baseball for many years might goodness. Over the course of some seasons after ballgame, there would be counted four innings of strikeouts four innings of Padre hitters. Striking ow that is not fun to call that. Not Fun to watch. Did you cry when they clinched a playoff spot? I got a little emotional. Yeah I did and I'll tell you why I'll tell you why. After watching someone first of all, wearing the poverty uniform for three years and living here in San Diego and having the GIG. Have you grow attached your team and I was sick and tired. Of the dodgers coming into town in chicken are you know what's around kicking their? You know what's I'm not on the team but I say our. I was sick and tired of the cardinals coming into town I was thinking you get the idea I was sick and tired of people. Treating the poverty is like the. Of the national coming in and say, Oh, yeah. We'll sweep and three games. They're horrible. You know we'll be in their bullpen third inning, which was true. It's. Sick and tired of. It it goes accumulation of everything. More for the fans that have endured, such brutal baseball over the years of very lean years to finally have something to cheer about it. All of a sudden just got to me and it was like Gosh that family a Mesa that's been following the poverty since the PC outlays that family and Escondido that's loved the poverty since one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, the. You know where I'm going with this. So it was an accumulation everything wearing the uniform getting their butts kicked, and then finally get a chance to go to the postseason two, thousand, six inches kind of all. So and you know if you're watching on peacock a mark grant has got some things in the background there but you're one of the I guess now who? Who is that? That is. Duane Kuyper oh, the be famous broadcaster they're doing. Dwayne, his probably my dearest friends based light light hitting doing caper. High. tweet hyper one runoff. Stone ethically with other. But I do love that you got. You've got pull like post sticks there but you don't have a pool table which is interesting in your man Cave there I guess a nice little touch that it looks like you have a pool table. Well, you know I do have a pool table tennis cropped up on three kilos, right? Okay Mark I I understand you look you don't have it. You don't have A. Seating I'm actually sitting in all stadium seats from old Comiskey Park back in Chicago the remember the green wooden. Yeah. So anyway, that's about the only thing. This is only baseball thing I have in my house break dwayne Kuyper bobblehead doll. Yeah. The light hitting second baseman the Captain Wayne Typer. So. Well good. Luck and have you don't. You remember the last time we hung out. Should we talk about it. It. I can tell you where we were in when it was. Okay. Nineteen Ninety one. Atlanta Georgia. Jackson Gills Yeah. Craig's Sagar's bar. Yeah. That's retry God wrestle Crusaders Bar and we were just yuck ended up having a good time. Of course that was the year that the race of the World Series In nineteen ninety one I was hurt the official cheerleader team I did not pitch one inning that year and that's why the braves were so successful. So does this count as hanging out in his this fate that we're getting? In this day and age yes this is hanging out anytime. I can look at my ipad and see I mean you look great. Thank you I mean. You still have your hair. Yeah. You still you still look great and I feel bad because you know I was enjoyed hanging around you but there was no reason to have you on the show because you hadn't done anything successfully and and so I mean no offense mark I just I couldn't be on hey, another padre a season where you won sixty eight games. Right but I'm happy that we can reconnect because the padres the padres are bringing us together. Yeah, I can. The only success, let's see. The, all those bad years I I had some great food in the press area I I gained a lot of weight now. Eight a of Yogurt frozen yogurt all those poverty losses were tilted evenly because it was great yogurt machine in the press dining room. That's that's why I love going. Back then because of the Baseball the baseball wasn't so good with the yogurt. How many losses? How many losses have you been a part of as a broadcaster? The padres have you totaled it up I started I started in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, six, this twenty fifth season and I would say the teams that were five hundred were. Will Ninety Ninety Eight, ninety, six, ninety, six. Ninety eight two, thousand six, there were some good years there middle two, thousand, two, thousand, seven, thousand, eight. I would maybe fewer than ten. No the total of losses like the number of games that you've watched the padres lose in twenty guys gotta be gotta be over a thousand right? You don't WanNa. Get my stat guy to do it. and. Nineteen Ninety six and by the way, have you ever been mistaken for the Steve the Jerry Springer bodyguard St will? See. Wilko's yeah. Have you ever been mistaken for him? I have never no no. Never no local festival. Yeah. I can see also a little cal ripken to. Very very little now, very very, very little. They it's the at. Cal. ripken cow better pitcher. I'm being mean spirited here. I never got to pitch in the show. It's okay. Yes. Pat New York's. Great great to catch up with you and talk to you twenty-five years.

He said it sucks totally sucks obviously, it is what it is especially as an older player. I look forward to buy weeks it is what it is. We'll be here we'll make the most of it, but it sucks now in most years, Rogers would be able to travel and during a bye week there. But the NFL Players Association agreed on a new policy that requires players to stay in their home cities during their bye week. So they can be tested daily to limit any potential outbreaks. I understand it I. Mean That's Part. Of the. Game Plan here. Can't let everybody travel all over the country during the bye week. Probably not a lot to do in Green Bay. During the Bye Week I. think that's what Aaron is saying fritzy goes is Aaron Rodgers, taking a shot at Green Bay and I went. I don't know socks. I gotta stay here in Green. Bay. What I usually go on a fishing trip I. Don't know if he's saying it sucks because I have to stay here it sucks because I can't go someplace else. He? No He'd get a mini vacation out of this. So I don't know if he's saying after all these years now he says that sucks and Green Bay during a bye week after that Jordan love pick all of a sudden Howard on the. Whole city. Yeah. If Jordan, Love wasn't in Green Bay than it would be fine awesome that I had to stay here and I can't go We just came up with a question. And I don't know what the answer is but. Do Do. You have a policy when it comes to who your partner has dated before. So prior to getting married. And Seton and mclovin I were on the basketball floor just talking about this. Now I I don't WanNa know anything. There's it's there's it's there's nothing good that can come out of it. But. Even. When you first meet I I don't want to know you know hey, where you almost engage engage any. I don't want to know anything about that. Yes. You have a policy. I don't know that we did have a policy. But I mean I know. You know like we've all had a life before that I? Mean we've talked about people that we've dated sort of conversation. But how does it come up in conversation? To. Pens like sometimes you're like, Andrew Andrew sold the story about how he traveled to Juneau Alaska and I went there with an x want. Yeah. I mean that's a pretty natural thing. What does your wife? Did you tell your wife about going to Juneau Alaska mclovin with a girlfriend? No. But I would and she you know what you have kids I feel like that part of your life has gone. So it's okay to talk about. Man I. Don't think so. Paulie, you got policy I I like to know nothing I. do nothing. I don't talk a lot about mine. I had a situation once where We took I took my daughter to daycare my young daughter, very young when you're old. And one of the other MOMS dropping her similar one year old daughter of a daycare was a girl I used to hang out with. Quite a bit and before I met my wife so now. The circles got the. Intertwined. Did you tell your wife that you dated her? Yes, I was forthcoming. The Great. But it's you don't want any part of it. You WanNa know hers she doesn't. WanNa mind. If can can there's nothing good that comes out with? Typically No. Typically. No nothing good comes out of it todd. I'm a bit insecure if you guys just met me so I'll take a walk down memory lane out loud without my wife asking for any the questions about what's going on in my not that I was a Gigolo and had some great past but does she do the same? She does not because again, she's more secure and she doesn't need to do that but I will say that's about a week or so ago. My daughter saw some old picture. From some book. I, don't know what kind of book she's keeping, which is like who is that boy or guy next year was my boyfriend Mike back in high school and then I hear my daughter say he was really cute and that was necessarily shot at me but I don't need to hear my daughter talking about that. There's some good looking ex-boyfriend that my wife when I with high school. So that was a high school nobody was still strange. I that's not bad. I mean like if if it was like, oh, Hey, who's this? WHO's this guy next to you like? Oh, that's Jim. The billionaire that I dated just before your father then you'd be like Oh. Dang. That's sucks. Now you're stuck with me and you could've been with Jim the billionaire I wonder why Jim the billionaire didn't work out that must be really tough break for you honey but what do you want for dinner? That sucks for your high school boyfriend at a certain point to be like an adult that's have to clean out your scrapbooks in just make sure that there's no remnants of anything if you have like an old been with notes and stuff and pictures letters from an axe landicho who will be found ballantine's Kharj. Let it go. I still have that plate that had the veggies on it from Simone ships at bay there and throwing that played out that had the little croutons. Now does your wife ever played I? She told me not to open. The. Lamp on the side of the bet I'm not allowed to tell you that I don't know what's gone. Final final hour coming up. Regardless of how you load, I urge each of you vote in a democracy and the right to vote is the most powerful non volatile. We had all of us in America heavy duty to vote go. Voting, we're supposed to know how this works. After. All it's the cornerstone of our democracy at the ballot box. Everyone has to say. But the reality of how voting works in America and who gets to do. It is not as fair or clear cut as we like to tell ourselves long lines and confusion at polling place members of the Turtle Mountain tribe were turned away from the polls. Tonight, a backlog of undelivered mail is piling up in post offices Otari. I'm Katie couric, and this is turnout a podcast exploring America's voting record as long as there's been a right to vote, there have been waste to suppress it. So we're going to talk about it.

Moms Meet Happiness Happennings

"Hey franz it's moms make world the podcast where we talk about how to strengthen home and family. My name is mary. And i'm so glad you're you're if you're brand new. I'm shaking your virtual hand. I'm glad to have you from wherever you are in the world. If you're coming back to hang out with our family and friends were so glad to have you back again with us. Pull up a chair or maybe crap fund eat and get a comfy blanket or something. We're gonna have some fun today. I'm so excited for you to get to know daughter rachel She'll be talking about. How do we kind of a series that we may be doing here talking to different people but how do we find. Happiness mentally spiritually emotionally physically. All of those kinds of ways. And how does that sometimes translate to helping other people more happiness in their lives. So i am so grateful to rachel because she is in the middle of the thick the slog of a master's degree and she is super busy. And she's usually a silly little goof- folic like her mom. But this is more serious time and a more serious discussion And i'm so grateful that she could take time away to even do this usually. We're we're doing other fun. Things like walking and hanging out with family. But this is you know the podcast and so we're trying to be very professional about it anyway. Come join us. we're gonna have seen a minute. Tell me all about what brings you joy physically attain up. I think that's a really great question Thoughts of different things. Bring me joy in that area. I really love to exercise. It's a big part of my life. love to our love to run. I love to walk my friends and my family. I love to rock my rock. Climb pretty consistently. I've coached for a long time in that area led to do yoga. I just i really looked to move my body. And i think one of the main reasons of brings me joy as one while. It's very scientific. It's it's kinda hard to trick your body to not like exercise because our brains are wired to like it. It's a really great boost to all those happiness chemicals that people talk about really really easy way to get those going When you exercise. But also i really love to exercise. I think it brings me so much joy physically. Because i do it because i love my body and not because i hate my body. I think a lot of people exercise for the second reason and it doesn't really make them very happy But my focus is much more on. This is a gift that i can give myself and my body instead of punishment and that has has brought me a lot of joy. Wow i love that. I don't think i've ever heard anyone say quite that way. I do it. Because i love my body and not because i hate my body in some people. Isn't that where to think about. Some people actually hate their bodies and they do it because they hate the rotties so no wonder not getting joy from it. It's a really good point. You have always loved exercise. And i love that about you. I remember when you were little. My sister-in-law saying that the government would have taken her away by now. She's living in some third world country and train for the olympics. When you're like four because you were just you're always interested in movement but have there ever been times for you know. There are a lot of people a lot of listeners. Out there that sometimes you want to like the spirit is willing with flushes week. You want to in your mind and your heart but he just like also kind of want to stay on the couch and have another dorito or something. What do you do you ever have moments like that. Or how do you put yourself through. If you ever have times where you really don't want to get up and go Yeah i think that's a really good question. My answer as someone who considers result of really physically active is that. I don't think there's anyone on this earth who hasn't felt like that before So don't feel bad. If you are feeling like that i think that's totally normal My my advice would be that the more you push yourself to be consistent And and approach exercise with a positive attitude The success you will have in avoiding that feeling or pushing through it. So the more consistent you are the less you'll feel like that But no. I don't think there's anyone on this earth who hasn't felt like that at some point. It's good to hear coming from you. Jared your brother who's also super active has said as all your siblings are has said to me. If i'm ever in that position mom. And i wonder if this happens to if i'm in that position i tell myself i don't have to go for five minutes. I literally just promised myself. It's just five minutes. And then when i've done five minutes i start feeling that little bit of an endorphin feeling and i wanna stay longer and by the end. I don't really wanna leave the gym or the order elections. I want to keep going. Does that ever happen. Where you just have to give yourself a little promise. Like i'll talk to steal a little bit and see how that goes. Yeah i think that's a really a really great way to approach it. I think that kind of thinking in also just that attitude of being nice yourself. You don't have to go. it's not all or nothing you know like you can try a little bit and see how you feel. I think Even just maybe like you're going to the gym like it as like okay. I i'm just gonna do a really really light workout. Maybe i'll just walk on the treadmill or something and then maybe you'll get there and you'll think oh you know what. Maybe i wanna do this instead. And i want to try harder. You know it could be a. It could be any number of things i think. Just kind of focusing on on pushing through the feelings of not wanting to do it is the hardest part But yeah yeah. I think that's good. I think is also important. Remember that you can breaks. You don't always talk to you. Don't have to be militant about it and incorporating resting and recovery is is great too. I totally agree. I think in times of my life. When i've been perfectionist about it like it's all or nothing i've got to push so hard i've gotta do the entire thirty minute circuit. Or why am i even here if instead of just thinking okay. I'm gonna give myself grace whenever i need to take a break. I'll take rest. I'll just. I'll do whatever i want. Maybe i won't even finish this today. I'll just as long as i'm just consistently going towards it right. Think it as like the opposition that we feel right before is presented to us by oppositional forces. Whatever dark forces as a as if it were a wall of lead and that's not true. It's it's just like a little tissue paper partition so we we if we just push it a little bit. We just pushed through that opposition. It's really not anything hard to get through. It just looks like a mirage. It looks like oh it can never do that. I can't. I can't no i couldn't you know. And then you get like you said you get to the point where you get more consistent and then you start to really like it more. The more consistent you are. I think is what you're saying the more you like it and i remember reading a quote by a woman that i just love this quote so much. She said i wake up craving every morning. Like people crave food. I just what i've read. I was like okay so just she said i was doing. Plot is a six three and the other morning. And i was so happy to be there. Just i craved it the night before. I couldn't wait to wake up and go do it. That's a woman who's been really consistent and that's a great place to be isn't it. Yeah and it just gives us those endorphins. And then how does that translate for you like if you do a lot of heavy cardio or or whatever strength training wherever you are feeling even really good brisk walk and you and i do those all the time when you come back and you're feeling better that translate into a better evening for you and people you love because of that domino effect short answer is yes before i go into a more adequate answer though to the question i want to maybe bring the other side of this pilates lady into the. Because she's here come on in. Carol knows she's just because she's not here. Thank goodness she's she's doing pilates craving flatties. Right now you know she She is is is correct any. I'm sure that a lot of people. Feel that way. And i want to preface this by saying i rock climb pretty much every day. I'm really consistent about it. Like one of my favorite things in the world. And i've had friends and family joke to me that i can get really like honoree and movie if i don't do it because i just love it so much and then watch videos about it and it's a really incredible part of my life that being said like they're still you know a day every once in a while where i'm just like man. I would rather die than go to the gym and like that. Obviously i'm being dramatic but like and that's okay. And like i just i. I want to really be authentic in the sense. That like even the most like jazzed up. Stokes two little fingers instructor is really not going to be like that one hundred percent of the time. And i know there's no poly pilates just just so you know there's not being nice yourself and knowing what she just said earlier is great like you don't have to be all or nothing one hundred percent of the time. No one on this earth is so yeah so keeping a perspective. Yeah that ella. So then i think you're gonna talk to you about when you come back and what you bring from that fiscal experience that maybe blesses others. Oh yeah. I just think it's a really if you're in a funk or if you're not maybe in as great of a mood it's a really really quick way to Snap out of it and you know it's not always going to solve all your problems but It's just like i said earlier. A great way to kind of trick your brain into being happy and That definitely can help. The people around you and your good mood is a wonderful gift you can give to the people who are going to be interacting with you. I love that i. I don't know. I i love the idea and i loved the experience of having exercised and and i come out feeling energy and you bring that joy and that that happened your staff as it. Were that little extra spark to what you need to do next. And i knew a woman years going be and this is before i was really into exercise. At so many little tiny children the exercise i had was keeping them from killing themselves all day long because they were just so tiny and and prone to You know harry carey. That accidentally being little toddlers. But i listened to her give a talk once and she said that she had so much energy from exercising. She was super super consistent. And i i wanted to eventually there and she said i am so energized that sometimes i come home and i think maybe i'll just do more laundry. That doesn't even really need to be done. Maybe i'll just do extra loads and folded too. So i have something else to do because i don't even know what to do with all my energy. I've cleaned my house. I've done this stuff. I've i've done. I'm just ready for tomorrow now. Maybe i'll just do laundry to sort of maybe maybe need. Some help doesn't really you know. And so she says. I'm looking for things to do and i remember taking that away mentally thinking okay. So it's not just for mood joy. it's also it just gives you that extra energy aj. Would you agree with that. You just have all that extra energy. And i've had women say to me. I i really just don't have time to exercise. Because i just my my life is so busy and what have finally learned that it actually gives you the extra time like you have to go on faith and you've got to trust it and then you will get that extra time back. In fact i think all of exercise is a trust experience that learning curve. the beginning is just is all trust and it may be all trust for months where you think nothing is really happening. I don't crave this. I'm not interested. I don't want to go back and that it just finally finally kicks in. Doesn't it what happens to you. rachel you like. Let's say you had to go a whole week without any exercise at all. What would you imagine you would be like probably wouldn't be very very fun to hang out with I probably wouldn't be very I probably wouldn't be very energized. Just like you said probably how lot lower energy Yeah i think. I would probably not be not be my best self. Yeah it'd be hard to bring that then you'd be bringing that to your relationships right so yeah makes such a difference so three cheers for cheering or any kind of movement we can. We can do every day Do you have a favorite of all. I guess rock climbing. Probably your favorite right Yeah rock climbing several my favorite. I've always told people that Just 'cause i've done it for so long and Coached and stuff. And it's yeah it's it's so much fun to do with your friends as well. I've always told people like if you don't really like exercising. You probably just haven't found an exercise that's right for you. You know you're always dreading and you hate it like yeah you should probably stop probably not going to be fun but like try new things and see what works for you when you invite your friends to do with you and and find other ways to make it more enjoyable or maybe you just need to try different class or or get get something. That's more fun to do outside or just kind of find the right thing that works for you and it'll eventually become a lot easier to consistently. Well if i could go back in time and as much as i do like rock. You need to help me get better at that than not at all proficient in that but But i do love yoga. And i wish i could sort of go in a time machine and become like a twenty something and go and have gone with you and your sister emily katie. Now you won't see we finally only with katie. I'm to greece and have become a yoga instructor which you are also a certified yoga instructor. How do you feel about yoga. does that change. Is that life changing to or maybe not in the same way as rock climbing Yeah i think it's it's kind of a different strokes for different folks kind of thing. I mean everyone's gonna have their thing that they like the most but I definitely think the yoga can be extremely powerful. Form of exercise in meditation. And i think has Incredible mental and physical health benefits. yeah. I love yoga. I love especially right now. Something called pile by schilling johnson which is a combination pilates and yoga because and the reason she created apparently she said is because yoga was hard for her to sit still for that long oppose so she created a more dynamic kind of yoga that combined with the which. I'm really appreciating right now. So all right sweetheart. Let's go to the next category She talking about mental spiritual or what else emotional emotional take you. Pick our pick okay. Let's do mental for right. Now what do you do to kind of stimulate that what feeds you mentally That's a good question. I ask myself every day. I am currently a graduate student and I'm getting my masters degree in social work. So for school. I work as therapists And so kind of my main focus throughout the day is other people's mental health So i'm working to help other people solve that question all the time. And i don. I definitely don't think that there's a one-size-fits-all answer But i think that place to start is Strong and positive. Social connections combined With hobbies that you're passionate about so and you've seen it. We're kind of rolling the emotional and mental into one. And we'll make we'll talk about spiritual so i think you're seeing a reminder of what you said. Actually days ago you said mom than most important thing. Social connection in all and efforts to help people with mental health is that is that correct. Is that what you said took correctly. Yeah you kind of preface that with i. I'm not the originator of that statement. That's taken from a book called The body keeps score. Which i'm sure a lot of people have heard of. It's a book on The science behind trauma It's definitely a good to read if interested but the author does make claim in the book where he says Like throughout all of his research is done. He's worked as a doctor in a clinician for a long time Like the most important protective factor you can have for. Your mental health is strong social connections. Isn't that interesting Gives you pause during his pint pandemic and it gives me gratitude for things like zoom where you can still have social connection or even social media. I mean is so so in that vein of thinking is social media actually a good thing or is it questionable in other ways. I don't. I don't know i'm not expert in that area so i don't know for sure but i think my my kind of instinct responses that it depends on how you use it. It could be a really good thing for sure and they could potentially be pretty damaging if it's used as just like a comparative thing and and people are two isolated. Maybe you're something not there in person. Okay all good thoughts. Let me think for second mentally. I really love audiobooks and that books in general and that particular format really Helps keep my brain fit. It's like exercise my brain and i know you feel the same. Don't you about audiobooks. Do you prefer those over physical books. I'm like both. It depends on how busy i am. I really really loved to read when i said earlier. One of the best things we can do is have hobbies. Were passionate about reading his his. Definitely one of those for me And if i'm extra busy audio books are great. And if i have some more time i love to sit down and read. Yeah me too. Ideally i would love to just crawl heavy blanket and have a cup of cocoa. Sit on the couch. Front of the fire. Read a book. But that's not always reality so audiobooks. Fill that that for me. Because that's one of my biggest hobbies too. And i love reading. Those things are listening to them and then discussing books with all of you guys which is where my other favorite things to do. Have constant discussion about books. All right. well let's talk a little bit about how we feel our spiritual buckets where some things that bring you spiritual joy. I would say the first thing that comes to mind is Trying to serve other people. Think that that always Makes me see the humanity. Another as well as the humanity myself. I i feel like that's a really great way for me to strengthened my spiritual connection. It's my first response. I think that's a great one and that sometimes that's challenging to. It's almost sort of out of our covered zone sometimes. Isn't it to think okay with. I do to serve someone else you know. What can i. what specifically can i do And then gathering the resources and making the time and all of those kinds of things. How do you decide who you wanna sir Man what's I think maybe just kind of It's hierarchical like if you're clearly seeing someone needs help. I feel like that's a pretty easy way to say. Oh i'm going to decide to help that person right there and yeah can leg whereas if someone is maybe not as obvious that can be that can be harder but yeah checking checking in with people checking your friends on your loved ones and Know seeing who might need help as replace start but definitely the most visible and obvious Options are are a good place to start there to have a little personal feeling about god. Who would you want me to help today. i wish i could say that. That was something that i was doing consistently. But i think maybe you would be the the example there. I think that's a really good idea. Definitely for everyone listening. That was not my idea that was hers. And i'm very proud of how good of a prison she is. I don't want to take credit for that. Well you extremely service-oriented however you figure out you want to but you are also very prayerful person about other things. So i think we both find solace and peace and happiness in prayer right and then what about what about anything else. That we do spiritual maybe Reading scriptures Sure yeah i think that's that's a good one for sure definitely have a lot of people. Yeah and they've been been a game changer for both of us. Yes yes so that connection. And i guess when you're working with people that maybe don't believe in god. How can this is a hard one. But i'm really curious especially as a mental health professional that you're becoming. How can you help. People have that spiritual connection when really they don't necessarily share your love of prayer or scriptures. Or you know maybe the in our case the tellers. And how do you help them. But you know that they need. That's virtual connection. How do you help them or do you just kind of not cover that area with them. Ever come i. That's i think a totally different question for a different podcast. i as a professional. I have a very strict code ethic said i need to adhere to so oh you're not bringing up at all. I'd i focus on what the client wants to work on. So for instance if the client brings up I'm interested in may be exploring more spiritual side of myself. Then that's something that we export together and whatever is best for them they they can kind of learned that on their own But technically no. I never really have the desire to say. What about this Have you heard this billy graham. Talk yeah when it comes to spiritual stuff. Because i feel like that's so personal and also i would Be jolly as a professional for doing that. Yeah that make sense but if they bring it up then you're allowed to kind of encourage them to say whatever they want to say for sure. Yeah and i think that Spaghetti can help a lot of people with a lot of different things so If someone is interested in that than it could potentially be Really awesome for them. I know there's a certain clinicians who have dedicated their entire practice just to Helping people who might have a religious or spiritual concerns So yeah. I think that that could be positive for a lot of people. Okay so right now while you're in training. You're not allowed to do that. But when you become a when when you're licensed or whatever it is the next step you're able to choose like which like you could become a more like religious therapist or something. So i mean the short answer would be. Yes i think that like you could. You would have to maybe establish your own practice and say like i am therapist who specializes in people who are going through like faith crises or or religious problems like you. Could you could. Or how interest in religion or something. Yeah definitely put that in your In your specialty gotta but still if your client was like not bringing that up. I wouldn't just be like yeah. So do you want to think about it. Like i believe in god. I don't know. I think that's a podcast for another time. Yeah okay. I agree and we will have more podcasts. So let's close with that 'cause we'll have you on again and By the way spirit. Thanks for the fun. Walk today and thanks for being awesome daughter. Thanks for having me. I love you so much dr later. Okay thanks everybody. We'll see you next time.

We have an honour to interview somebody that everybody needs to know about. And we're talking about a subject that everybody needs to know about you. See a lotta mosque. Sit out a tweet. He sent out a tweet here in march and the tweet said this fear is the mind killer. Fear is the mind killer now if we look into the science of it some people say i wanna look into the science of it okay fine. There's this thing called the and the amid is the emotional processing center of your brain. It's these omen sizable portions of your brain very small. But it's hard to think logically when you're freaked out so somebody out there thinking. I want to do my accounting. I wanna do my accounting. You sit down to do your accounting your focused. You've got your your in your favorite chair. You have your accounting music queued up because you have to have your favorite music to focus. You have your favorite pen. You have your calculator. You are ready to do your paper. You're ready to do your accounting. You're you're ready to go and then you hear something. S gas leak. What is what is this. Is this a gas leak and you look to your left. You keep know what is gas leak. It is a snake near your foot and we looked down. He said surely. There's lot of steak but happened so fast. And all of a sudden because we've all had an encounter with a snake we've all had an encounter with a snake and it's not fun. I was swimming in my pool last year. A snake swims by. Oh schick above. Can't do it it's too much. I don't want the snake near my man made lake. I don't want it somebody out there thinking about picking up the phone to make a cold call but you can't because you're afraid because fear is the mind killer now. Today's guest has served on what i would call. Killer waves lingo. I'm not down with the surf lingo. I will be educated. This guy has served on some of the biggest waves in the world professionally. He is at the top of his game. And with the covid nineteen shutdown. He's working on another product. He's that he's been working on for a long time. He's focused on that. He still stayed in. Great shape is excited and ready for competitions to begin again but this everybody look them up. Don't listen to me. Look them up real quick. Look up nick. Lamb nick l. a. m. b. nikola ping eighty foot eighty feet tall waves waves. Eighty feet tall craziness. This guy put his life at risk because puts his life on the line every day that he goes out there. It's unbelievable there's sharks shark-infested waters. I just the whole thing doesn't make any sense to me nick. Lamb onto thrive time show. How are you sir. How's it going brother. I am excited talk about this topic because so many people right now with the cova chaos surrounding us are are just freaked out and they're unable to move to make logical decisions and it's i just want to start there when you go out to. How do you get out to some of these. Eighty foot tall wave you. you have a surfboard. But how do you actually get out to the wave right right right. Yeah professional big wave surfer. And i love to surf the biggest waves in the world. I'd like to go fast. I like the grip and rip it and to answer your question. How do we get out to serve these. Big waves one. You can paddle from the beach right or you can get a jet ski. Assist the pull you take you out to the lineup. And then your era at the lineup. And can you tell the big waves on its way. How do you know the big waves about ready to swell up in the ocean so this comes with experience time in the water and essentially at the end of the day is it's pattern recognition at the highest level. It's data collection that you have from putting that time in in whatever venue it is focused on and you get that with time and experience. Okay tom so let's say the. It's called the maverick series. i believe. What is the maverick series for people. That don't know about the the the skiing because you are one of the champion surfers on the planet. What does the maverick series or. What does that look like well. Mavericks is the biggest gnarliest heaviest deadliest wave in the world. It's located in northern california. Just south of san francisco and in regards to the mavericks series. I believe it's called the risk right. Which is a youtube series online. So mavericks plural called. And how tall are the waves out there on average my goodness waves foot ninety foot tall massive of water. So you're serving down the ninety foot. Tall wave niagara falls meets mount everest. Do you get scared. Yeah of course. I get scared. You know everyone gets scared. But i think it's important to tap into your courage. Reservoir all have occurred reservoir. And it's really important to tap into that and at the end of the day. I truly believe that you want in this. Life is just outside your comfort zone. So how do you. What advice would you have the listeners out there except three questions for you if i'm out there and i'm afraid of making a cold call. I'm afraid of sending the email might rejected. I'm afraid of having that tough conversation with an employee that maybe needs. It's time to move on now. Maybe it's what would you say. What would it would you have for somebody out to about ready to have to do a tough thing. I would say. Just do it if you find yourself in a situation where you're scared or fearful check in with yourself. See how your breathing you know. A lot of body. Mass starts with controlling the breath. If you can control the breath control the body but you're a professional surfer and you have have you done well as a surplus people don't know about the professional surfing. How good are you in the world. I've had some success. I've been surfing since age of five competing since age and nine california state champion. I became the youngest surf. Mavericks fourteen and then got lucky enough to get invited into the contests and i'm now the current defending mavericks champion. And that's a big thing it is in your world. Yeah absolutely okay. Okay so now again. If i am going through a moment my life right now when you're going through some causes fear at the top of this waves eighty feet tall. Do you say you say to yourself. I mean what do you what do you do to keep yourself from freaking out. It's gotta be scary. Well to be honest it comes from the preparation that i put on land and the confidence that stems from the preparation right so when i'm actually in the moment i'm so focused and i'm in flow state so it's hard to explain but essentially it's kind of no mind scenario. You're not thinking you're just doing so on a practical level. How could our listeners who are afraid of making cold calls firing somebody maybe make asking for capital firing. Somebody that did have to fire on having difficult conversation. Put out a new marketing strategy. That might not work me. Recently i went into the voting booth didn't have a mask on. I was freaked out. But i go in there to vote. People aren't going to vote for freight of the virus. What do you say to somebody. Who's just overcome by practical tips. Do you have more well. You've got to ask yourself. What are you scared of. What is really going on in your life. That's preventing you from doing the things that you want to do. You know you surf down eighty feet eight hundred foot tall waves consistently. Yeah bigger the better like to go fast. That's like the size of like. I'm six feet tall. My building has a twenty foot tall ceiling. I think twenty feet tall. So that's that's told big and he doesn't bother you. I mean it's what i love to do. I love being in the ocean. I love to go fast enough to test myself. And i'd like to risk risk it. You know you want the biscuit. Well you got a risk it if you want the biscuits right. We all want the biscuit. Now this is a this is a final questions here for somebody out there though. They the difficult conversation and it didn't go well. They made the sales call and they got rejected. They they had to do the do the tough to to do the tough thing and a lot of people get headache after this thing they literally. It's like the thought the fear. The emotion causes them. Physical heading go. Oh my cranium is. My crane does not feel well harry carey says. Golly i've got a big headache. You know you have fallen off a few waves and you've you've faced fear in the face. Then you fell down the eight thousand foot tall wave. It's okay to fall. It's got hurt. It does had a concussion or two absolutely and then use that down after having a pretty massive concussion and you said to yourself south i needed create a solution to this problem right. Tell us about the solution. You have for the headache problem right. So what happened was while i was serving nausori portugal the largest way of in the world i slipped and fell on a giant wave that ring my bell and ultimately left me with a substantial concussion so for months after the incident i had headaches and migraines like symptoms and getting tired withholding frozen bag appease on my head. I said there had to be a better way. So that's when i started to design. What is now ice beanie ice beanie ice beanie dot com dot a compression. Cold therapy hat that you throw in the freezer and you take out put on your head. Anytime you have a headache migraine or concussion. Like symptoms and it feels great. Feels like a ac for your head. Tough question tough question here. This is going to offend somebody out there. I any time. I asked us questions. Just sometimes people don't react well to this level of intensity without questioning so let me let me just throw it in there. Does it work thousands of customers gas task for them. So i'd have to see okay. How much does it cost. It's gotta be thousands of dollars. No it's only thirty nine ninety five. Are you throwing slicer in a in a lot of times when you're trying to pitch something you throw in like. Oh there's more than one hundred twenty nine ninety nine but now we've cut it down to sixty nine ninety nine know what was that.

"Okay. You're smart enough and gosh, darn it people like you like you people like it. All right, let's yeah, let's do this. So, hey, everyone would up its failed. Gerber shack. I'm here today with the man. The legend that is Tom Webster, he is what senior audio gig, allergist, something like that. Senior vice president for Edison research. I know. Right? That's it happens when you're old. You get that. And we're, I do a lot of a lot of things in my job. I'm mostly a consumer insights research person, but but man, the digital audio space for us. It's just blown up in the last two years. And that's kind of like ninety percent of what I do now. Yeah. Well, for sure. I mean, so it's interesting. You've Ben podcasting, longtime as well. I mean, you shave her have been doing the marketing companion podcast for a long time, and you are major consumer always sharing great insights about this. And now like people are finally starting to get this time. So why now, why are people getting this now? Is that really even true? Are people actually getting this now or not so much? Well, there's, I mean, there's two answers to that. Phil. I think one answer is that advertisers are starting to get it and I do a lot of work in in the advertising space, right? I work with a lot of agencies and buyers and also podcast. Works and streaming audio networks, and it's starting to become a safer place for media buyers to to place their money. And it's an kind of an important thing for anybody in the advertising and the media space to realize is that someone at an agency, someone who's a broadcast media buyer, or digital media buyer, they all have the same goal and is to not get fired, and you don't get fired by spending your money and safeway's. And so this space is becoming safer to spend money on. So that's, you know, that's one big thing that's happened. And as more money is entered into the space, the content game has ramped up. You know the interest in advertisers ramped up the interest in the meat in the press in general about things like podcasting, and you know. Just voice in general, have really ramped up. So. I think. We spent a lot of time fill in content marketing, talking about text in what you write and video videos is John or Mus, but there are three kinds of content. There's text. There's video and there's audio. I think audio has really gotten short shrift from marketers and advertisers in terms of its power, but that's starting to change. Okay. So it's interesting. I've been radio has been around far longer than TV. Yes, older than me Alder by a couple of weeks. So yeah, so that's good. Right. I mean, so yes. So why did it take podcasting so long? I mean, is it because we have no real statistics or what? What's the problem? You know, we do have. We have really good statistics. Actually, this is kind of a misnomer about a podcasting in particular, is that we don't have great stats about podcasting because there's always this disconnect between how many people downloaded a podcast, and then how many people. Listen to. We have great statistics on downloads that server level data. That's the same data that you would get from banner ads and click throughs and things like that. And so I think in the earlier days of podcasting, people felt, you know, people believe the edge cases in the edge case was that this podcast is getting downloaded but not being listened to. But what we've learned over the years is that that's not actually that doesn't happen that often when people download something, they listen to it. Apple will unsubscribe you from something. If you haven't listened to it in like three weeks. And so we have really good data. We have much better data in digital audio than broadcast. Radio has broadcast. Radio is a sixteen billion dollar business with kind of not that not great data, you know, kind of estimate son on a few hundred people in any given market what they're listening to what they're not listening to. So I think podcasting in particular, has been judged unfairly as. It's been judged to the same kind of standards that display ads and banner ads had online, but nobody clicks on those things. So what are you? Are you just selling impressions. Is a is an impression in a podcast better or worse than an impression in a display out. I think it's better. So it's, you know those those concerns are going away. So how's it better time? That's interesting because I think intrinsically I agree with that. I mean, that seems to make some sense to me, but I don't know why. Why is that? True? Well, a lot of it comes down to the. You know when people watch you fill, if you. You know if you mentioned a product or service that you that you use a lot, right? You have trust. You have an audience and you built that trust up. And that is something that we have tons of research on that conveys a much bigger force multiplier than how people feel about a banner ad on a site. Even if it's a site, they love even if it's a site that's kind of a niche website with great writers. They really support people don't necessarily associate the the advertisers with, you know, with the authors of that site like they do on a podcast. But honestly, this is something I've researched for twenty five years. It's true and broadcast radio. It's very true in podcasting, when the host of show endorses or speak positively about a brand or product or service, it has a real kind of force multiplier effect than it does more than what a television advertisement might do. TV ad tells people, here's a product or service. It has this feature or benefit, and you might like that. But what an endorsement in podcast does, it does more than just, here's a product feature service benefit. You might like it says, the people who support this podcast, the people who support making this content that I really enjoy happen. They must be good people. There must be good people behind that brand. And so on a give that brand chance. And that's a different proposition entirely. And I think that's worth the premium and it's really taken well over a decade. I think for the advertising community to get there to see that premium, but it's results are there. And so much of the talking a lot about advertising, I'll get the content but so much of the advertising that successful in podcasting right now doesn't depend on, you know, download metrics or listen metrics. It's all direct response. It's all you know. Order a casper mattress in and use this code or try blue apron and use this code. They see the results. Direct response works incredibly well in podcasting, so we know we know that it works. That makes that makes sense. Okay, that's good. Now, I'm curious. Does it matter that you know and the show is not sponsored by casper mattress. You just mentioned them just mentioned. I'm just bring them up because you what I am authored by casper mattress. So. Oh. Yeah. So use code Wendy, tune thousand one? No, but but but that would be a relevant advertisement on my on your show. Right. So as opposed to, hey, I get my glasses Xeni optical and I love any obstacle. They're also not a sponsor, but if they're actually listening Spicer me, right, they should be because true. I mean, I mean that sincerely I do love them. I do. I think I have some level of influence because most people recognize my glasses, they have not who I am, but they think guy with cool glasses. I get that so so. But what happens when we start seeing the the schmucks on that on podcasting that now advertise again, irrelevantly at a product, they don't use, don't care about, but happens to pay them eighty seven dollars a click. I don't. I don't care. Honestly, I don't. I don't. I don't actually care about them. I think everybody has a right to make money the way that they wanna make money. And I think when podcasting is a truly healthy and self sustaining medium every revenue model works. So if your revenue model is that you have a passionate audience that can support you with direct donations. You know, through patriotic or radio tovia was is a big kind of direct funding platform. That's great. If you're doing direct response advertising and you're getting good money from ZipRecruiter, you know, squarespace and things like that. I want that to work for you to if you wanna run national ads, if you wanna run, if you want to take the gecko as I like to say and just flat out play an ad from Geico. I want that to work too. I want them all to work, and that's it's a false choice. I think to try to say, do this and not do that. They can all work in podcasting because ultimately what podcasting is about is I want to listen to what to exactly what I want to listen to exactly when I want to listen to it and where I want to listen to it. And I think that is that can support multiple monetization schemes. I want them all to work. Yeah, no, I agree. I think also it's the who is delivering that content. I think in many cases that's important to write the personality of the host, the seven people that watched the show besides my mom, all like the show, hopefully me, I'm yeah, but really, I think that's that's important thing as well. So let's talk about the audio brand, Tom. That was one of the things that I think intrigued me about some of the research done is the power of an audio brand and how that's different and how that's the same as kind of the the rest of the brand. Yeah, I think it's an, I'm gonna talk. About this next week at content marketing world, and. One of the things I noticed about content marketing world, and I'm not faulting them. I've spoken there for this'll be my fifth year. I love the people there love Robert rose, Kathy mcphillips, and everybody associated with the brand there. There's one hundred and forty sessions at content marketing world, and only two of them are on audio. And yet audio is one of the three basic planks of content, right? You have texted video and you have audio, and it's not just about podcasting, and you know, so much of my practice at Edison is not just podcasting, but it's I work with Pandora and Spotify work with NPR in American public media and a number of lots of the podcast networks. But we also have this new thing that has entered our space, and it's I think, more significant than people think, and that is the rise of the smart speaker of things like the, you know, the Amazon, Alexis weed products, Google home. There's a Microsoft has a the Cortana series of products that come out and it's a mistake to think about these things as just a gadget is something that will end up at the back of a drawer somewhere. Just a speaker that you talk to. That's not the right take on this. The right take on this is it's how're going to communicate with computers. It's how we're going to get the media that we want to hear because it's not about the speaker. It's about the voice assistant technology, and that's going to get baked into your television very soon. That's going to get baked into your refrigerator. That's a big to your toaster and also very important. It's going to get baked into your car and when it becomes easy in your car to get exactly the digital media that you want to consume, that's going to subvert the entire audio space that's going to drastically impact broadcast radio. Because broadcast radio does not really have a great play. There you're going to, you know, you're going to I work in the audiobook industry. You're going to hear more audiobooks. You're gonna hear more podcasts. You're going to hear more streaming audio from people like Pandora and Spotify, and all of those things are nearly advertising free. They're either adds Spartan or add freight. And so what's going to happen is you're going to have this entire giant swath of the American population that you just can't reach with traditional interrupt advertising anymore. So a very bullish on the, you know what? We're calling the smart speaker space. What I call the voice assistant space because. You know, as we use those devices to get the content, we want get the media we want and also start to conduct commerce. It's going to become very important for brands to have a voice. I mean, a literal voice because if my commerce is conducted by just saying Alexa, I need more printer paper, where's the Brandon? That where's the retailer in that it's going to be really, really difficult for retailers that do not have a voice that don't have a brand voice for their retail to to become to get what I would call top of mine preference. It's one thing to have top of mind awareness, but top of mind, preference, when you ask your smart speaker order, this order that are you asking for a specific retailer, do you care about that? Or do you just want the thing to show up at your door from Amazon prime? It's probably the latter, so it's gonna be really. A difficult environment for retail, especially. But also for brands. Boy that that's really interesting. I hadn't thought about all of that. Yeah, that's mind-blowing men. So so. Okay, I've, I love like portable battery power packs, drama, big nerd on that. My favorite brand is probably anchor. Anchor works best. I second though is by buddy Chris rhymer. It's Busa tack. Boosted tech does not show up in the top ten a battery pack. So how does how does he flip that to have that on the top? Because I don't know that even I would know how to audio scroll to get to that, unless, hey, Alexa, give me the boost attack battery pack. Well, if that's how you're going to order it right. If that's how you're going to order a battery pack, then you need to have a presence. You need to have a native presence in that channel. So if you know if you're envisioning a scenario here, where. Your order boosted tech on. You know, Amazon, Alexa, and I've had to remain by the way because I set it off constantly as you might. Then you need to have a presence on that channel and there. Certainly some of our clients. Have that kind of presence where they can inform people about skills that are offered on those devices. I think you need to do something that's helpful to people of. You know, my friend, Jay Baer wrote a book called utility a few years back that we contributed research to, and I think it's important for perfume to think about audio utility. How are you helping people made to me that the greatest audio app of all time is older than I am. And that's the Butterball Turkey hotline. If you're cooking Turkey on thanksgiving, and you know you've been cooking all day at two hundred degrees and it's just not working out. Don't do that. The Butterball Turkey hotline is the thing that you can call in a moment of crisis. 'cause you need help. 'cause you're Turkey is a seminal pit and you're kind of you're in the weeds, right? You've gotta get this done and your handful. That's what audio is all about. So I think it's it's important for brands to think about how can I help people in the moment of need when their hands are full when they're holding a baby when they've got arms of the groceries when they're on their way out the door to give them exactly the things that will help them get through their day. And if you are the brands that can do that, if you're the brands that can be associated with that, then I think you're doing a higher calling, right? You're actually helping customers, and I think that's why we're all in business. Yeah, absolutely. Wow. Wow. That's really awesome. So, hey, Alexa call the Butterball Turkey hotline or Alexa. Right? Play some soothing music to help my baby fall asleep. Very similar. Cut needs, right? Yeah. Or, hey, Alexa call grub and deliver the Turkey because I really messed this one up. You know, all of those things are possible, and and I think you know having having a brand voice and there's so many examples of this. Right? And it's not just it doesn't have to be a human voice. It could just be, you know, audio branding. I mean, who can't who can't do the Intel inside jingle, everybody can do that. That's such a such a powerful piece of audio branding. I'll give you one of my favorite pieces of helpful. A helpful example of an audio. I content strategy and that's a podcast. It's about three minutes. Long call chompers chompers is sponsored by crest and it is designed for kids to listen to while they brush their teeth and it gives them something fun. It gives them some fun information or fun activity to do or think about, oh, and by the way, it also tells them every thirty seconds. Okay. Switch to the bottom left side switch to the top right side switch of the top left side. It's meant to be listened to while you brush your teeth, and I think that's freaking brilliant audio content marketing because it is in a context that any parent can imagine, like none of our kids brush their teeth enough. They just don't like adults don't brush their teeth enough. Here's this really short piece of content that is very subtly brand. Did it's not there's no ad for the product on their again. It's about, do you do liken trust the people behind the brand or they brought me this great content, I will consider them. That's really, really powerful, but it's a, it's a piece of audio that fits into your life while you're doing something else. And that's something that audio can do that video truly can't. And the text truly can't. Audio can really be a companion to the things you're already doing and finding the ways to help help the humans in a profitable and delightful way with audio. There's so much opportunity there. So an audio I content strategy. That's interesting. That's very interesting. So so. Okay. So for you work with a lot of the big brands, you got an idea on how smaller brand could actually think first time. Well, I think consistency is a big part of it. And also to have have distinct point of view. I think in terms of our company in terms of Edison in a, we do have a consistent audio brand. It's it's me. Typically I present everything that we do online. I present a lot of what we do. That's in the public eye that's on camera. And so when I go to agencies privately to represent clients or or present things, they they know my voice. And that's, that's such a basic thing, right? If I, if I ask you to think about a motel six ad, you can hear Tombo debts boys, just going to say, I sure do let him for Tomba well, and its consistency. And with consistency, comes familiarity and with familiarity comes a relationship. And so you know, those are the kinds of things that I, you know, any brand. I think a lot of here about to be brands, beat ABI brands don't often think about this stuff 'cause they think, well, we're just gonna put out. A white paper and produce a webinar, whatever, but having consistent compelling and engaging voice behind doing those webinars behind all the stuff that you put out there. People just don't think that much about it because most women are suck fell. You've you've seen some lousy webinars. I've seen some lousy webinars, and it's it's less about what you're seeing on the screen than it is about how people are engaging with you. So even the most esoteric beat ABI brand, I think has room to consider. What is your brand sound like? What does it sound like is it friendly's at thority is is calming? Is it a nerve ING? And all of those things are possible. Right. And and is that consistent? That's interesting. So I think that that tells me that there's opportunity for speakers like human speakers like you and me to possibly find either our voice or help a brand be the voice of the brand. Again, going back to the spokesperson, not because of celebrity, but because of consistency, which is a different conversation than that. Do you want. The sound like a mid Betty Crocker, midwestern housewife, or do you wanna sound like Sam kennison? I mean, I remember Sam kennison being loud and he was voices summit in in the nineties until he got arrested soul, right? So till he passed. But that's interesting. So consistency, I really liked that time. It really resonates. I think consistency is a huge part of it and just just thinking through, I think it's not something that people think through because content if you're writing a white paper or something like that, but nobody sees the human behind that, but the voice is. So if Akayev's the voice is so moving to people you think about the the most successful podcast rate. Now they're great storytellers with great evocative voices. And you know, every brand has a story to tell, and I think you know you and I both speak. I think. My speaking is one hundred percent audio this year. That's kind of new for me to kind of steer into such a niche in that sense. But you know, I'm having a lot of fun with it. Having people that have that are evocative and engaging storytellers evocative engaging voices and kind of, you know, as a brand being associated with that, it's going to be increasingly important, especially again as we continue to ask for content from things like Alexa, Google home, and these are not small. These are not insignificant phenomena that we've been tracking. We track any number of different technologies and media channels in our research at Edison and the smart speaker space. Just about tripled in one year. We've never seen any technology grow that fast. Smartphones didn't grow that fast. Nothing has grown as fast as smart speakers. They're essentially for a lot of people a thirty dollar computer that you can have in the bathroom. And when people get accustomed to. Asking for things from those devices, whether those devices are a smart speaker or whether that devices in their car or their television, they're going to get either the easiest solution for them or the thing that they have developed a relationship with the thing that they would actually go out of their way to ask for even if it's not the easiest thing, which is the ultimate definition of brand loyalty, and it's a given that it's a voice medium that requires a brand that really wants to play in that space to have an evocative engaging, consistent and brand appropriate voice that is. Always associated with that brand of product. That's that's so interesting. And this is this is just so fascinating to me because I'm I, it almost hearkens back again to the days of radio. Yeah. Yeah, because now there is a third medium, and even though we hear the age video, I underst-. I mean, it makes people like to watch video, but I'm seeing most people actually prefer to read video or to listen to it. And the fact that like Facebook video, you almost you can't minimize it. It's very hard. I mean on your mobile, sometimes it'll stay up sometimes not. I mean, YouTube is now charging for the right to let them play in the background. Right? That's just so so interesting how that happened. So so let's talk more about content, Tom, let's talk a little bit more about a a audio. I content strategy and how that might be different from even mobile first or video. I content strategies some of the things that we heard in the last ten years, but given that you said tripled with smart speakers at sounds like something need to do. Yeah, it really is. And there's so much opportunity for for brands and you know, even small businesses to, you know, to kind of own a little a little piece of someone's day. And I, I think, especially in for like local businesses and smaller brands to have to have a slice of time in someone's everybody spends time with audio every day. The average American listens to four hours of audio every day. The average person who listens to podcasts listens to six hours of audio everyday. They just listen to a lot of auto and anybody has the right to to have a tiny slice of that. If you are helpful and useful in the moment you think about the the daily commute, the time is coming very, very soon, not science fiction. It's it's actually possible now where I can just walk into my car and say, Hello car. Play my play morning commute and it starts off with my local forecast. It starts off with only the traffic that is relevant to the route normally take. It starts then with the news that I am interested in and then whatever whatever comes next, do I wanna laugh for few minutes. I'll get. I'll get the thing that makes me laugh her few minutes wanna. Do I wanna learn something new? I'll get the thing that makes me, you know, learn something new and that'll happen in twenty two minutes and it'll be customized to me and I'm going to love that. I'm gonna love that because it's exactly what I wanted to hear. We've done some research. We did a study called the commuter code where we actually mounted gopro cameras into the cars of people. And we, we had the camera mounted at, you know, their smartphone. If that's where they're media came from, whether dashboard or the radio, and we took, we basically coated all of these interactions about what people listen to how often they switched and the more technology that people had in their car, especially the people that had like completely internet connected dashboards, the less they switched, they had more choices. They switched less and a lot less in the reason they did that was because they could get exactly what they wanted exactly what they wanted. Unlike listening to the radio where if you wanna get to the, you know the Harry style song that you really wanna hear, you've got to hear three songs you don't the more connected. Your dashboard is the less. That's true. And so in that space in that world. Where people are getting exactly what they want, and they're increasingly willing to pay for the ability to get exactly what they want to to subscribe to Netflix to subscribe to HBO and Spotify and Pandora one, things like that. The harder it is to reach them if your brand, unless you're really relevant to their everyday life and audio is a great way to do that because it's a companion medium. It's relevant to me when I'm working out its relevance me. If I, you know, I live on the eighteenth floor. I don't have a garden, but if I had a garden, I would listen to audio while I was gardening. So it's just a chance to, you know, to add value in that period of time where people are doing other things with their eyes while. Wow. Well, it sounds to me like every brand would do well to develop a two minute show something that they could put together in two minutes that could be je appoint that inbetween so that you could fit. Into somebody's twenty six minute commute with the weather and the sports for the day, what the stock market is doing. And maybe just maybe that two minute tech show that is going to bring you a good tool every single day. I love that kind of thing, and that's there's so much growth and I'll go back to podcasting here for moment. There's somebody potential avenues of growth in things like odd casting. If you look at the the top twenty or top fifty shows podcasting, there longer shows their more thoughtful content. There's a lot of public media content, you know, this American life cereal and things like that. But if you think about the times in your day, when you can fit in those quick tips that little hit of audio, there's so much ential there for those things to to enter into people's lives that. I don't think the top charts top podcasting charts and things like tunes are at all reflective of where we can go there just reflective of where we've been. And I look any any of our speaker friends that have talked to me about getting into podcasting, and I'm going to going to do a little speaker thing tomorrow night with some of our speaking spill friends. I'm recommending really short content, not because there's a a right answer to how long your podcast should be. There isn't, but there are more opportunities for you to get your message into someone's everyday life if that message can neatly fit into the time where you have to go to the bathroom, right? Yeah, no, totally that, and it makes so much sense to me that we want to fit instead of going deep. I mean, it's great that you know today we can spend an hour together, but some people are gonna pop in and out. And the hope is that, you know, I'm going to slice this up so that they can pick the segment that's interested them instead of me presuming that they're going to be interested in the whole hour and we see viewers pop in and out. We see that happen all the time. So yet, you know, as we talk about that, those are the people that love podcast, those people that love audio, Tom, you talk in your in your article, one of the favourite articles that you've written about kind of the future. About the fifty two. What the heck is the fifty two and how does this relate to other people? So podcasting has been around for like fifteen years and it's never grown quickly. It's grown steadily year over year. You know, some years, one percentage point, some years, two percentage points, but it's, you know, it's gone in terms of weekly listening in the United States from zero back in two thousand five thousand six. When I first started tracking it to seventeen percent of Americans and that's not, you can't call that rapid growth. You can't call that kind of hockey. Stick growth, right? It's just steady growth, but at seventeen percent of the US population twelve plus, which is what we track. That's forty. Eight million Americans who say they listen to podcast at least weekly, where I think the, you know, the world in terms of media and advertisers start to to to take podcasting completely seriously as. Equivalent to radio and TV, and display is when you get to a reach of one hundred million weekly listeners. And so the the difference between what we have now, which is about forty eight million and hundred. This fifty two million weekly listeners. And one of the things that I often challenge people in the podcasting space is, you know, we know that seventy percent of Americans listen to a podcast, weekly, monthly, that's twenty six percent and ever. It's forty, four percent. Why is there such a gap between ever and seventeen, right? Why are there so many people that say they've ever listened to a podcast, but they're not regular listeners to podcast. And to me, that's all about content. They have. They found something at some point to listen to, they found it engaging or maybe they tried podcasting and found that it was too esoteric or too difficult to listen to the topics were not not of interest to them. And so I think there are a lot of people that have tried it and kind of discarded. It. We need to spend a lot more time looking at why that is and having honest discussion about how do you get the fifty two because we've got the forty eight and we got the forty eight doing certain things, but I don't think those things are going to get the fifty two. It's not naturally going to happen over time. Growth doesn't happen forever because those fifty two are different humans. You know, it would have been easy for the founders of my space to keep looking at their upward growth patterns back in two thousand eight and say, you know soon, we'll be bigger than GO cities or whatever growth doesn't continue forever. Growth stops at some point unless you understand the brakes limiting factors on that growth and what the article that you referenced really does is try to illustrate with some of those breaks are. Yeah. Interesting. Interesting. So for those watching and listening here, Tom, what? Let's just I should have done this at the beginning and that is what in the heck it does a what is podcast. Poboy you opened a box of worms on that. I know. Tell me tell me. Yeah. I mean, I have a very liberal definition of what a podcast is. On the one hand, you know, there's a strict technical definition which I despise, which is, you know. Content delivered by our s syndication via audio enclosure, sort of like a blog Beatty, but it's audio. But that's what limits podcasting where it is. That's like nobody cares about that made to me. It's just audio that you want to hear that you can listen to whenever and wherever you want. I mean to me, if you call your show podcast, it's a podcast. I'm not going to quibble you think it is? It is, but those. I'll give you some examples of kind of client stuff here. This American life is is available as a podcast. If you have a podcast app on your phone, you can listen to this American life. This American life is also on the radio. So that's not a podcast. So is this American life podcast or not. I guess it depends on where and how you access it. I mean, something's are podcast only, but then you know, you look at something like from the same producers, cereal cereal is not on the radio. So when it came out it was a, it was a podcast. It was distributed via really simple syndication. It was picked up by a podcast app and you listen to it, but our clients at Pandora also make it available on their platform. And that's just streamed audio. That's not a podcast in the technical sense, but it is because they say it is. So you know, it's, it's a whole can of worms. I think people get really hung up on on those kinds of things. I mean to me, it's a show you want to listen to whenever and wherever you want to listen to it and I don't care beyond that. Yeah, I'm totally with you. I think we should start calling them shows in fact, have stop calling minute podcast. Because frankly, sometimes I mean, I don't even. Get to the podcast part of it. I like Facebook live because I have a real conversation and of yours have questions in real time. They can ask them or they can come back and you know, you're my guess. So I would take you and say, well, great question, Tom, let's see Thomas to say about this. We can continue the conversation in ways that are not always available, but then eventually making available on only so that those that prefer that because it's not about me, it's not about you even it's about the listener. And for me, that's what's important is the person that wants the content. However, they want whenever they want wherever they wanted. So many platforms to go that we have that that the answer is not or it's always end, at least for me, it's all is always end. Yeah, and it's always about an fill you. You've hit the word, the word that I love, and that word is the show. It's always about the show. People don't care how they get the show, the care about the. Show, and we talked to a lot of people that are familiar with the term podcasting, but say that they've never listened to a podcast, and they have a lot of misconceptions about what podcasting is. They think they don't have an apple in their phone that listen to it. They think that they cost money. There's that nasty word subscribe that people use podcasts, always aided rate. Review. This show you subscribe being something you pay for with the exception of a YouTube channel, anything you subscribe to, you pay for it, and so I've always hated that. But ultimately it's about the show and you know if you were to ask somebody, do you have the Netflix app on your phone, or do you have the Hulu app on your phone? Most people would say, no, I don't know, but you give them the Handmaid's tale and and they're gonna figure that out pretty quickly like who? Okay. I pushed that h button that I can watch the Handmaid's tale. I don't care about the h. button. I wanna watch the Handmaid's tale and podcasting hasn't had the show. Oh, like that yet really has cereal did well with the chattering classes in the same way that madman did, but that didn't make it a mainstream hit. And we haven't had that in podcasting yet, but I can also tell you this, I'll I'll go back to radio for minute because I've worked in every spoken word medium. Just how powerful audio can be. I am old enough to remember. The election of Ronald Reagan in this country. And one of the things that really swung. Voter, sympathy and voter opinion towards him was an an audio campaign and it was it's an extremely famous. It's one of the most famous audio campaigns in advertising history done by Hal Rhymney Howell Rhymney had a speech only kind of agency and very distinctive voice, and he did a campaign for Ron Reagan morning in America. And if you are. You know, look this up on the YouTube. You'll find it morning in America because the sound of house voice and the optimism and the, you know, the the just hope in the message and how calmly delivered it. It was audio brand to entire presidency and obviously they, they, they completely blanketed the American airwaves with that particular message. You know, if you were at all radio listener during those years, you'll you'll recognize the voice when you hear it. And to me, that's the kind of that's how audio could capture everybody's imagination and not just, you know, this little slice of Nisha about this podcast with this particular show audio can aim higher than that in a lot of ways. And if you get that right match between. Engaging voice and engaging message. The magic happens in here and that's video. Can't do that video. Really can't do that in the same way that great audio. I agree. I wish VIN Scully, Hannah podcast. I would listen everyday man. I listen every day. I mean, look VIN scully's. One of the great voices in American history listened to. I would. I would hear him do diaper commercials. I'm all in on VIN Scully. Yeah. Well, and again, it gets back to the consistency of the voice. The fact that we could always trust too much like Bob euchre's Milwaukee, much like Ernie Harwell was in Detroit much like Joe, Joe buck was in Saint Louis. Yeah. And for me, it was, you know, Bob Murphy for the Mets in New York and listening to to aging aging Bob Murphy. Go and he settles under it. Back in the outfield here comes a fly ball. He settles back and, oh, and it's gone. Just because his eyesight was going so badly. Yeah, let's not forget about the famous. Harry Carey from Chicago, holy cow. Absolutely. I mean, that's that's why people. Funny, you mentioned this and I want to go down the sports rabbit hole here too much, but what people like Harry Carey VIN Scully did between here was produced something that fathers talked to sons about and father's talked to daughters about and and mothers talked to sons and daughters about you. Don't talk to your kids that way about a dry cleaner. You don't talk to your kids that way about a grocery store, but sports is a business. It's a franchise and the way that we pass it onto people a lot of has to do with the experience that's created in here and not necessarily by what you see and that you know baseball's a great audio sport in that way. And that's again, I think that's the power of that theater of the mind that audio can produce when it's done really well. It's not easy to do really well. Yeah. Well, that's a good point. My my favorite growing up. At noon. The noon show always had Paul Harvey and the rest of the story every day. Listen farm report from eleven thirty to one o'clock. We got a little two minutes, three minute blip in their Paul Harvey's the rest of the story. And there's nothing in podcasting like that right now. Honestly, Paul, Harvey was able to kind of unify a country, you know, left right liberal conservative in in ways that a lot of commercial broadcast talkradio does not do anymore. And in he had that ability to do it in four minutes to to just, you know, tell engaging stories that were edited to within an inch of their life and had just the details required to engage you and then that he'd do these great. Live reads, for, you know, kissed coffee mister coffee. Yeah. This is my favorite. I'm gonna do a very bad Paul. Harvey, one of my favorite Paul, Harvey rest of the stories that I ever listened to. You know he had this had this habit of he would leave you with a, you know, a tease that he would pay it off with something unexpected. Then go rate into an at at my favorite one that I heard was the man in the cab. My friends was Boutros Boutros-Ghali page to constipation. Never let it trouble you again. These like incredible. Boutros-boutros-ghali custom Asians like that, like that the Mannan have my friends. Boutros-boutros-ghali page to loose stool. He just had this ability. And you went with them on the ride because you trusted him, right? He had a trusted voice. He never violated that trust. And that's, you know, I've done so much research in the audio space, like even on the news side and people will believe something is true if they trust the voice, telling them that, and you can't violate that trust. If your brand, you cannot run jive by people or you will lose that. But if you are a brand that tells truths, if you are a brand that can earn that trust the voice that you choose, conveys all of that. Wow, wow. Well, that's a good close time because we can talk the rest of the day about this, but I think the big lesson here folks choose your voice for your brand carefully. Maybe it's you, maybe it's someone else, but think about who that is. Make sure that it's careful, make sure that it's consistent and make sure I would add that it's frequent because people forget about you unfortunately way too fast way too much coming at us. So ideally shows get listened to more than weekly or random random shows. So that's, that's interesting. So I like you have the last word here. What else? If folks are thinking, boy, you know, I'm gonna get started with an audio show. I wanna get started with an audio. I type strategy. What would you suggest to them? Please? Just be audience. I ignore what it is you think you have to say because the marketing department wants you to say that's not gonna work in audio never does be audience. I be specific about the audience that you want to reach be specific and intentional about the humans that you want to connect with and then connect with those humans and maybe the way that you connect with those humans has nothing to do with your stuff. Maybe your stuff is just the thing that brings you that message, but ultimately what people want, they want companionship they want helpfulness, they want to be entertained. They wanna be engaged, and it doesn't really matter what brand new are. If you can engage entertain and help an audience. You don't need to run ads for your product. You can just be associated with that feeling that people have. That's also really it's all about the audience. And so anybody thinking about entering the audio space with a podcast, show a skill in a smart speakers. Some kind of daily briefing. Think about the audience I think about, do you have the right, and do you have the skill and do you have the ability to fit into their lives in in a day-to-day sense? And if you do that's very powerful piece of mind, share to have access to. I'll put your audience. I always try to fit into your audience's day to day life while Tom fricking. Brilliant man. I'm so glad we got to spend some time together today. On the hill who also let me. Yeah, let me take us out here. So that was calm. Webster folks, hopefully enjoyed that.

Ryan Coon | How the Avail.co Founder is Pivoting to Accommodating Customers Who Have Been Impacted by the Coronavirus

"All right Thri based on today's show we interview the CO founder and CEO of avail. We talked about how to market your business with search engine optimization and learn how the avail dot co co-founder started avail. And we learn how you can hire veil to help you manage your properties. Are you a landlord? You have tenants. You want that process to be more efficient. Perhaps the good folks at avail dot co can help you with your real estate investment business also on today's show a chance to suggest a nickname for today's guest and I get to introduce our guest to a man by the name of snakes who prefer to take payment via a brown bag of sticks. Is this Mr Snakes snakes so as the Brown bag some shows don't need us a liberty in her to introduce this show this show too man. Eight kids co created by two different women. Thirteen multi million dollar businesses ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to thrive time. Shaw again Yes yes yes yes ladies and gentlemen on. Today's show we're interviewing the CO founder of Avail Ryan Kuhn welcome onto the thrive time show. How are you sir? I'm well thanks so much for having me. Hey brother I'm excited to deep dive into the origins of avail. Let's start off at the beginning my friend. Wh when did you first have the idea to create avail? Yeah the idea for veil was probably I about twelve or maybe fifteen years ago it was back in. You know the late two thousands. I guess you'd say the like seven or eight range. I had just finished Undergrad. Just graduated from college moved out to Chicago. Beautiful City was living in an apartment up nearly field with a bunch of buddies from school. And that was really my first time experiencing pain points of being a renter te from an independent landlord. And so I started thinking about these things like why AM I. Walking across the city to slide a rent check under this landlords front door. And why am I apply for property? Scribbling all my personal sensitive Info on a sheet of paper handing it over to a complete stranger and then a couple you couple years after that. I was fortunate to be able to invest in a couple of single family. Homes so invested in rental properties myself and saw it from the other side where now the landlord and I found that I was wasting a bunch of time as an independent landlord and really having seen it experienced the prom from both sides. Realize there's gotta be a better way. There's got to be ways to use technology to help automate and streamline the process of being a landlord and being a renter. Where does your passion for this problem? Come from I mean. Do you come from a long. Real-estate background is something where you've been heavily interested in real estate for a long time or is there a certain passion behind the desire to to found avail? Yeah I think of things so number. One have always had a personal interest in real estate. I think when you look out at the very wealthiest families in the country. They've all made significant money through investing in real estate and so have always gravitated towards real estate as really a way to build passive income and to save money for retirement and then the passion for avail really came from my personal experience my personal frustration of being an independent part time landlord. Who's juggling a fulltime job has a family and is also trying to do the right thing with my rentals and I knew a lot of other people who fit this profile. You know in the. Us There's about eight million individuals who are busy fulltime doctors. Bankers ATTORNEYS WON'T SULTANS FIREFIGHTERS. And they own rentals and our our mission here to fill is to really help these landlords in the renter's improve their lives. What was the first property about? Tell me about the first one was it was at hot was. It was a double wide. Was it a an Igloo up north? What what was your first property. Well it's funny the very first my very first foray into real estate Was actually back while I was in college. And My co-founder now at avail Lawrence. He and I were in this real estate. Investing class together back taking professor rushing class at the University of Illinois. And at the time we were like look we'd love to go out and buy properties but we we were poor college kids and so one of the things that we learned during that class is really learned all about these property tax liens. And what you do is the county will actually auction off their receivable. And they'll auction them off at a particular interest rate. And so Laurence Ni- re pulled some money together that we had saved working summer jobs and soft and we decided. Look we can go down to the county courthouse. We can invest in these tax liens. So maybe we're not actually investing in underlying real estate but that was really interesting for a into owning property or owning a derivative of a rental property that ultimately proved pretty profitable. Now assume that I know nothing about what you're talking about breaking down on a third grade level. How does somebody make money by buying these things? Yeah so what happens. Is You know if you or anyone in the audience. Here is a homeowner you know the pain of having the payer property taxes and those property taxes go to fund everything from schools to emergency responses and an all of the government services that we all take for granted. Well those property taxes are I mean the county the city the state they need those those taxes in order to provide those essential services. And so what they do is for people who don't pay their property taxes on time The county is sitting there. And they're saying well we've received eighty percent of the money were supposed to receive but this other twenty percent were sitting on. We still haven't gotten it because I need the money to go out and pay pay. The firefighters pay the teachers and everything and so what they do is the actually go out and sell those receivables out to individual investors and what they do is they hold an auction and at least this is how it happens in Illinois is the each count t it typically happens in the fall. And they'll go out and they'll say okay we're going to auction off these receivables and they actually start at a high interest rate so it starts at eighteen or twenty percent interest rate per six month period. And then what they do is they bid down the interest rate so as an any individual can go to these tax lien auctions and they'll start at eighteen or twenty percent and then over time those interest rates will be bid down. And so you may settle on is okay you can you pay the county? You make that the county hole for the amount that they're expecting and then when the county goes out and they collect on the money eventually they end up paying it to you with interest so the county is actually is still doing all the work. Collect the receivable yacht as an investor. You're able to collect and I think we're making somewhere in the high teens per year on doing this. At the time it was a no-brainer so mind blowing. Okay so for somebody out there or make sure we get this. If somebody out there It was trying to draw a little picture and understand this idea. You said if somebody does a thousand dollars of taxes to let's say the city of Chicago you go out there and you're buying that liability may be an eighteen percent interest rate so the right away. Chicago gets their money and then when they collect. You're making that eighteen percent and my mom and my correct oversimplified you gotta that's a much simpler way to say it but spot on okay so listeners out there we now know that you know something about real estate we now know your your entrance into the game one thing. I don't think a lot of the listeners are going to know. And this is this is GonNa be annoying. We need Harry Carey so here we go gone you. My friend have over six hundred thousand landlords and tenants all across the United States. Oh thank you. How have you been able to grow veil to to the size? It is today. How did you get your first ten customers? So they'll we launched the business about five years ago and it was really built. Our Product is built to again save. Landlords time provide a better experience for the renters living in those properties and when we launched avail. I think we probably made a mistake. That a lot of entrepreneurs make which is we went out. We invested a lot of time a lot of money into building a product that would say that would solve our own problems. Solve our own pain points and so we invested years into building. Availa building the powerful tools that we have we. I would say admittedly and I'm embarrassed to admit this but we didn't spend as much time on marketing as we probably should have and so getting those first ten customers clay. I'll tell you was something that it was a struggle and we had to do as we had to really go out and listen to landlord pain points. We had to understand where to meet them. And what we found is that in addition to not having access to tools like we offered avail that helps landlords collect rent online or list their properties and screens. Henin's one of the things that we found is that landlords were starved for information again. These are busy fulltime. Doctors bankers attorneys. They don't know the first thing about being landlords and so they're like the rest of us though when they have questions they go to Google and desert searching for things like electrons online. Or what questions should I ask? Tenants and so what we quickly realize is the power in content marketing and the power in providing resources out there so things like blogs and educational guides and resources we started investing in those and then landlords just happen to start finding that they would read it they would get value out of it and then they would ultimately you learn about our product and become customers now before. I WANNA make sure breaking this down because I don. I don't think a lot of our listeners. Know this and hopefully I am again oversimplifying. Make sure we get this. If you have a website that is crawling lake a searchable by Google. A guy like you might produce the most original relevant content about the subject you might you have the most html original html text or content about the subject and therefore people find you online if you could if you could share as far as a pie chart of the first one hundred customers that you gathered how is it is a percentage on this pie chart here. What percentage of them came from finding you online. And what percentage came from you cold calling reaching out to them for the first time during those first hundred customers the first hundred. I would say it was probably fifty fifty. Yeah I mean I talk a lot about the power of content because it really has been game changing for us. But we were still also out there hustling ozzy around there. I mean knocking on doors. Pounding the pavement harm clone people. Yeah now I gotta ask you this because I love cold calling I love. I Love Stories of Cold Colin. I mean to be there hot to tell me what was the. What was your craziest cold calling moment the craziest when we said man can't believe pull that off or it was crazy marketing moment like super rejection. Where you thought this might not work. Wow that's that's a really great question. I mean what's funny is I've I. I'm also a big believer in cold calling and I've been doing it really since high school and one of my first jobs back in highschool is sitting doing cold calling just outbound sales and so huge believer. But I think for us. What's what's been really interesting. Kinda funny like a moment. I probably would start thinking about some of these column older generation people who happen to own rental properties and people who aren't as familiar with technology. Maybe the younger ones in the audience and so we just have crazy stories about having to guide people through actually getting to a website and just different Different folks who who need help navigating their phone and getting kind of how do you get to Google stuff? That's one of the things that I think we can also Unfortunately as a technology get an a little bubble if you will and so we don't have all the right maybe as much empathy for for the user. So yeah it's really interesting because you guys are Nurdin out. I mean frankly. You guys are nerd. Now you know the guys are are such into technology. If you're not careful you know the consumer might not be as sophisticated as you guys. When you're you're cold calling you're in good company listeners. Know this but the founder of Uber Travis the founder of Uber. He wrote this he said I went to Google. Typed in San Francisco's chauffeur or San Francisco. Limousine I just filled out an excel sheet and start dialing for dollars right. The first ten guys I called three of them hung up on me before I got a few words out. A few of them would listen for like forty five seconds and then hung up and three of them said. I'm interested. Let's meet and if you're cold calling and three out of ten people say let's meet you've got something I gotta ask you this. What percentage of your initial calls actually said yesterday because now you have so many customers the markets chasing you guys you guys are clearly the market leaders over there at avail but out of the first hundred calls. You're making I mean how many people actually you know. We're willing to set an appointment with you. You know it's probably about that same percentage. It's probably about that twenty thirty percent and will maybe give you give you a little bit. I'm to listen and make your pitch bring it back to Harry Carey. I mean if you're betting I mean two hundred three hundred as a baseball player. You're destined for the hall of fame. That's right so I mean yeah it's painful but you really don't need a lot of a lot of shots go in to make it really worth your while a moment where you thought you know. This might actually work. You have a moment where you thought. Roll out the beer barrel Polka Polka. Roll out the barrel. It is time for because we have a live. This thing is going to work did you that moment or you thought. Wow this thing is going to make it. Was it yesterday? Was it a year ago. When did you have this idea that it did? It might actually work you know and I. I'm very genuine when I say this. We still don't feel like we quote made it. I think even I mean with six hundred thousand or so landlords and tenants who use our product every day and rely on it. I mean we're still out there fighting every day like it's day one and it's really all about. Just how do we stay hungry? How do we I mean don't get me wrong? We're definitely happy with where things are happy with. Where things going? But I think the worst thing that we could do is get complacent and be satisfied. So we're hungry but I guess to give a little bit and to kind of answer that question a little bit there have been moments. Where my co-founder born sny? We we talk all the time. And we're pretty close and we've had different moments at company outings and like our holiday party four months ago when it was actually okay to go out and socialize. No way no way you for pizza that you once went outside before these D- before cove that it was. Okay tell me more about this outing. I need to hear more therapeutic. Yeah we I mean. We were We were all out. We're at this kind of ping pong bar in Chicago and everyone's playing Ping Pong and we had rented out. The room is in this ping pong bar and standing there and we just haven't I looked around and I'm like wow. Can you believe that we got this incredible group of diverse people? That are in a sense. Like we've brought this altogether and we started this company that four or five years later has really found a way. It's a bring not only our customers together but really brings together this amazing group of technologists marketers. I mean everyone on our team that worked so hard you use a ping pong bar. Have you state at the Knickerbocker Hotel in downtown Chicago? I HAVE NOT I. I've heard of the hotel. Do you have a good story about? I WanNa ask you up near. There is a big bar that has like pool as a billiard tables. It's got bowling all these kind of things. It's not the kind of bar you went to kind of bar. Did you go to. Yeah Yeah you can picture it. It's got all the different billiards games. I mean darts bowling and it's really a fun environment. Yeah get everyone out little different than your typical holiday party of Santa around this this drink but did you see competitive juices phone. Does your game get better after one adult beverage added. What's the ratio? What's the deal I mean? Do you get better if one adult beverage or you better at the game of table tennis or worse. There's definitely a sweet spot where I think maybe one or two adult beverages. And you're a little bit looser your your but you get it. Get a couple more than a couple. Yeah your game can go downhill pretty fast. I'm GonNa tell you a story that it's a very true story and then you want me with a better story about Availa guy. This is my story. I was staying at the Knickerbocker Hotel. Speaking for a group called. You build a build your own house that kind of thing and I'm speaking to these guys and Long Story Short they have billiard tournament with all these people. There's probably three or four hundred people. Did you guys have a table tennis tournament? Did you have a tournament? Did you do that? Yeah of course okay. So they had a big tournament and I am a C. minus at the game of billiards but as a kid. I had a pool table in my basement so I was. I'm like a C. minus. Okay so I signed up to compete with all these people many of which who brought their own stick their own Q. They've been practicing. These are the real wizards. I mean these are guys who are serious and somehow after two to three. We'll call it three maybe four adult beverages. I have worked my way through the massive bracket of hundreds of people and I find myself in the final four while my wife looks at me and is like how are you doing this. You've never beat me. You've never met anyone we know. How is it possible? I mean I'm I'm I'm rounding up like first graders to beat little girls and pool. I'm bad I'M GONNA see mine is probably a D. minus well. Somehow I get an I start talking trash and I start telling the other guy how I'm going to dominate him. I'm GONNA timid him. He can't stop me. I'm feeling the flow. I'm riding the bowl and I win now. We get down to the finals and I all of a sudden it was like I realized they don't have talent. I don't have skill. I've never practiced and I got destroyed but I made it into the into the finals before losing. Did you make it that far in your tournament? Did you go to the finals? I didn't I was out pretty early but it was so much fun. Just watching and seeing different people on our team compete and I'll be honest. The the ones who wouldn't expect we're the ones who made it to that final final four. Okay now I gotta I gotTa ask you some tough questions about this. Avail thing you've got going on here. The website is a veil DOT Co. I believe Avail Dot Co. And if I want to learn more about it Sam a landlord I have two or three properties maybe one hundred properties. What are the steps? If I want to try you out and make sure that you guys are not just a bunch of table terrible table. Tennis people gathered and to scam me. Yeah anyone in the audience.

Oh they can get three months free for all of those premium features. How long did you from the time you started on this idea? Did it take until you started getting leads from your blogging? Did it take you I mean there's definitely a lead time. It's probably six months or so. Is it takes a Lotta time to create content. Get it out there. Have Google really start crawling it and what that means is that Google will actually start ranking it in all the searches so it's a long game it takes a lot of effort but you gotta stay consistent with it but now it's something that for us has been invaluable? What would you say to the person out there who thinking about optimizing their website? And they've heard you know they went and met with somebody like Bruce Klay Dot com or somebody like Seo Inc dot com or some local Web Company. I mentioned in some some reputable companies and the reputable companies. Say Listen to get to the top of Google. You gotTa have four things in place. Okay but you gotTa have great reviews from real customers. Okay you gotTa have the most original relevant content three. You've got to have a website. That's properly designed so google for it's gotTa be mobile compliant and they said Yeah. Yeah yeah but I've heard Google's changed and you can just copy and paste content. I've heard you don't need to write original content. What would you say to them? Oh boy don't believe it you you've really gotta think beyond just plagiarism. Which is an obvious. No no to really develop an audience and a community of people that want to do business with you. I think it's important to have a unique thing. This Saturday and said really have unique content and unique perspectives. And again it gets hard. It takes time it takes money but it's really critical to do it the right way and I think that's would ultimately google is getting at Google makes money when people go to Google and they search for things and they find what they're looking for. Yup and so you have to really try and think about what's Google care about well. Google cares about providing the best the absolute best answers for people's questions. That's IT and if you're out there as a business and you provide those and you do it. In a way that makes sense it's trustworthy high integrity. Doing the right thing. Google will reward you and what you say to somebody out there. I know you're not a search engine expert. I just want to dispel some of the myths out there so people say why I know a guy I know a guy and he knows a guy in we're going to do is I'm going to go back to the building over there. I'm going to give him a bag. It so it's a brown bag. Got Dying and then. I just to give it to a guy named snakes and snakes will give you back links. He'll will give you back links boom. It's like well we just cash over sudden your top and Google. It's unbelievable I know a guy. Go look for sneaks bring the Brownback? What would you say to somebody who says that's how you get the topic? Google? Now you just buy the back links I clam not an SEO but my my gut says you get what you pay for. Just real common sense. And I said that Kinda tongue-in-cheek because that's definitely a no no that anything that you can get that easily is not worth it from renting perspective. Do you recommend you collect rent from your employees or from your from your tenants by having them bring a brown bag of cash and it to a guy by the name of sneaks definitely not I mean beyond and I think it's an interesting thing you touch onto because one of the things that we're seeing more and more. I know we're recording us at the very end of April twenty twenty but one of the things that we here's C. An unfortunately here about avail are some of those like too good to be true. Yep whether it's Seo whether it's in the rental industry you've got to really be careful and be able to kind of even if the guy's sneaks promising ally you gotta gotta be weary of pro tip when somebody identifies themselves sneaks. You probably don't want to do business with them now. I have three rapid fire questions for you.

Mark Zuckerberg likes to wear the same thing every day sneaks when people bring brownback filled with cash What what would be your audio. Did you have one in? Us Secrecy. you know this super strange. I keep a thirty two ounce Nell gene water bottle on my desk and I probably drink two gallons of water a day and people just question you know. How do you do it? Why do you do I think just staying hydrated is one of the keys to staying sharp I think Dehydration Causes Fatigue? And so I'm just like always drinking the water. Well that is too weird. I'm just kidding. I'm kidding okay now. Final final question here obsolete listeners. Out there love to read books and you're a guy who has you managed.

Ep 63: Pyramids & Sphinxters

"Bye bye properly. Podcast for two brothers, and Kyle that rated statement nominee to be taken literally was up seven hype hyperbole. Why Hello and welcome to hyperbole podcast. This is a self help podcast for the helpless. My name is Stephan and in honor of president's day. I am going to talk the entire podcast like John F Kennedy, and my name the ebony and I personally. Impersonation so going to be willing to. Dia mmediately, please. Oh, I should probably say why I'm like, I mean, I should probably say why I'm like, Jeff 'cause I fuck in assassinate the jokes and five so funny. Vicky more like. Shooter like like, Henry Cavill or Lee Harvey Oswald. Oh god. We should we already started on a bad note. Okay. This is good ammo for all the people to stop listening to. Oh god. No, more sesame femurs presidency. Died office so presidents who died in office. Oh, man. I was going to do Nixon. But he died. Well after that do it his career career to it. You you left? He left an office. You didn't XM? Oh, okay. Well, then Richard next. Improving relations was trying. I like, oh, it's Richard Nixon with a fan just blowing his cheeks. That is amazing. Hello, everybody. Happy presidents day and welcome to hyperbole podcast. We're going to stop impersonating presidents because that is a precedent. We don't want to set we will moon precedents. Anyway, let's talk about reviews president sometimes get bad reviews. We get good reviews, and we like to share it. So let's read a review from apple podcasts. This is our latest review from apple podcasts. And it says. Nothing. It's empty. It's they don't say anything, but they just left a steaming hot five star. And so we picked that bag up. We are all smearing ourselves with it. It is so good naming bag of five stars on our doorstep, and we tried to stop it out. But now it's all over shoes. And we're wearing those shoes proudly with stains of five stars those guards everywhere, we go. We don't know who you are. But thank you. Do not ask what your podcast can do for you. But ask what you can do for your podcast. And that is as let your podcast can do for you. The terrible impression you still like Dana, Carvey and mastered discount. Harry Carey here. I got I got it. Is your podcast? Oh, fuck you. I won't wait and easily do whatever. Anyway, what you can do for your podcast is leave a review or it's just rating. We love it. We fucking love it so much we go to bed. You know? How little kids go bed with their little teddy bears. We go to bed with our ratings. And we're like great. So leave us a review love it more than others. But we all love it. Yes. Yeah. You know, those little girls that just have plush animals all over the bed. That's me with all of your reviews. So thank you. They help me sleep at night. Pretty each pill review onto a pillow sleeps every night. I do them. Oh my gosh. Some Oetzi artist is making Bank right now for me. Anyway, thank you so much for all the reviews were gonna go on to the beef. But before we do we want to read a quote from one of the greatest and wisest celebrities of our time. This segment is called Weiss. Oh, wisdom where we usually got a quote from Tommy why so where he just on Instagram decided that he should write quotes. So he started doing that. But they didn't make any sense to the public. So we with our sage president like wisdom would help decipher these shit show of quotes and help you guys understand them. And then use it as a focal point for the questions that we answer throughout the show. But tell me why. So started listening to the podcast. He didn't like it. So he stopped quoting. But that's okay. Because there are plenty of otherwise celebrities out there and this week, we've deci. Wanted to go with Connie west or the great. Yeah. So. Anthony, why don't you read this one as one of my I cons? I would love to read one of these. The great easy says when I think of competition it's like I try to create against the past. I think about Michaelangelo and Picasso. You know, the pyramids. Okay. So it kind of made sense to me until the last the last two. You know, the pants. I mean. Yeah. They're they're works of art. But they're not the artist. You know, I mean. I I'm not sure I'm not sure if that was around the time of Michelangelo and Picasso the thinks that Michael Egil Picasso. Collaborated and the pyramids that gave that were built. It was like pyramids Michelangelo with guest star Picasso. And then they just have these fucking pyramid. The weird ass face on the side. And he's like. That was definitely Mike Lange. That that shit was lit that was so dope. So I think this quotas about looking to the past for competition. So I don't think that we should think of any. Well, that's what he says. When I think of competition, it's like try to create against the past. Just like that me. Well, I mean, you know, he's like, you know, he sees the pyramids. And he's like all right. It's my move now. Like, he sees the pyramids. He's like I got a fucking top shit. You know, like, okay, I got I gotta edge them out. You know, like he's not just going to stand on the shoulders of giants is going to be giant L kicked on other giants on nuts. Well, yeah. Metaphorically speaking he is going to create the eighth wonder of the world with his words. So it's going to be like wonder of the word, I guess, maybe. Maybe there's just like inside the pyramids. There's some great. Fuck in database, or there's there's just some fucking. What do you call it? There's some. They're not a database. There's some there's some secret room that just has this collection of all the thoughts and works of geniuses like Michelangelo and Picasso. There probably is. And that's he's probably like, I think Connie is like confused as to what the real world, the Mike what rich people world is goes to all these like illuminate esque parties, and Mike, but he doesn't realize like no one else knows about that shit. So he's like, you know, like Michaelangelo. So what are you talking? Like there. So you're saying he's actually write about this stuff. But he just doesn't realize that we don't know. So he went to party in the club inside the pyramids that only the best of the best the most elite of humans can go to. And they're like, oh, yeah. Picasso michelangelo. They created the pyramids and their great works of arts. And this is also a an example of competition that you should try and stack yourself against when writing lyrics for rap songs. He's like oh. Yeah. Dog got it. And then now he says that's the world that they don't understand. That is exactly what I'm saying it. Okay. So the takeaway here is what? I think the take the main the main takeaway here is pyramids. We should just think about pyramids. The whole time. They're struck the classics that are inside them. The schemes that are inside them. They're artists the Michelangelo the Cosso truth graders. Pyramids didn't know that pyramid. Backwards is Dima rip. Demon very wrist Mukasa. It. Yeah. It almost spells out Michaelangelo. It's super close. Nice. Nice. Okay. Well, thank you for your great and infinite wisdom, I think we're ready to move on. And the next segment. The main one is called. And this is. Where we find questions or fans send in questions that they'd like us to answer. And we go ahead and answer them. It's the media part of the podcast, which is why we call it. Anyway. Let's go ahead and start answering these questions. Kyle. Would you like to read the first question that was brought to us by our fan, Jordan? Yes. I would I would like to read Jordan's question. Okay. So question one brought to us by our fan. Jordan. Thank you, Jordan. I want to become a random internet personality. How do I start? And how do I stop giving a fuck about what people think I want to be able to express myself in particularly towards people that feel the same. As me. I'm scared to be judged by the people, I know it should not matter as I have very few friends at cetera. How do I stop caring, and what platform would should I start with? I I was I mean the question the question ask her their name is Jordan. And it reminds me of a quite a famous internet personality that has the name Jordan. And I think that you gotta just kinda go with their model, which is like you got to appeal to angry and lonely young men such as presumably yourself, if you're a male, and you got a you gotta start saying pretty outlandish things. And that's you gotta just not give fuck because you know, the money that's going to start coming in to your Bank account, and you got to start talking like Kermit, the frog a little bit. And when you talk, and you give advice, and you see things you better be good at it. And you'd better Dom, well, tell people what you think and don't apologize for it. Okay. Because there'd be held to pay. If you don't see an Irish Kermit. He's a he's a Canadian that I've turned into an Irish kermit's. Ofter lucky charms. What are you to? Bitter Dom well wash your penis. If you don't it'll be here to pay. Okay. I like that. So first thing is have strong opinions. Wash your. Second thing. All right. That's great. What should he do though? What what what platform first off what platform? You can do the pants washing video feel. That's copying. Whoa. Actually wash his penis on you to. Copy. It's never been done before. I all I think it had probably has been done before. But I think that's been caught pretty quickly by the YouTube. Mature content flag people. That's why you gotta go to Vinnie. Oh, bro. They show that on them. They might. The wild west over there, man you ever poke your head into Vinnie. Oh dot com. Crate bids. You don't wanna know, man. It's like chat roulette, but but like, you know, but for two thousand nineteen. That sounds awful. Okay. So let's straight. Let's let's the penis washing video inside of a knapsack fill it with some rocks tied up and the road in the river. Let's drown. Let's not talk about any more. What else could this man do platform? I feel like YouTube is a good one because it is the second biggest search engine in zoo world. So they've got a lot of you have a lot of hungry is that are ready to consume your content. You gotta pick something to talk about though. Right. Platform dumps. Oh, I thought we were gonna wait brand. No more poop jokes talking said rebrand. No. Not rebranding. We're staying OD. We're we're we're losing you can talk about all you want. But I'm just gonna end it out. So you can oh. Man. You know, you gotta cover a niece that hasn't been just done to death. You know, like, you gotta you got to get into something new and. You know? Why don't you bring something back from the past? Because if you look at your competition like Konya does you got to think of the past? So why don't you? Why don't you look at peop- men that wore skirts or kilts, and why don't you just wear a skirt all the time? And that's your thing. It's random it's retro. And it's. It's something people can't really look away from. So why don't you just make a bunch of videos where you talk about the benefits of wearing a skirt for a man. And then you just you display all those for the world to see. Youtube in Scotland stuff. But nobody cares about Scotland. So bring it to America. Just do what an entire civilization is doing but bring it to YouTube bring it important place. Yeah. Bring it into the air. Don't wear any pants, then don't wear anything just where put a leaf odor your penis wash. No, no, no. I'm saying censor it. You have to choose a nice excess re to censor your throb Robby. Okay. We'll go back to throw me Romney's them. I'm using euphemisms. 'cause I'm sick of saying penis if I say it one more time going to vomit. So maybe you should wear. What's good? What's good accessory that conceal your throb? You ravi? Kanani component. DIY like the knitting and. Warmers for your Robbie. I locate that's a good idea. I like that you could do you could do YouTube how to videos. Yeah. There you go in you could mitt couldn't it warmers. All my let's definitely not called him that dog. What? A little cold. What's a good where what's good name for them dog? We can we call them Johns. Hong. Okay. How to how to make your own dog John's, and then you can make all sorts of ones you could knit them. Maybe you could do spandex. So then you walk around and you with nothing on on the top you can wear whatever you want a nice t-shirt. Maybe V-neck you could have a leather jacket a scarf a hat and then on the bottom. It's just the dog John and walk around, and and people will probably inquire about why you're wearing what you're wearing. And then you also need to make up a name for yourself one. Because that's what internet personalities do and two if you share your real name, you might get arrested for what you're doing. So I feel like it'll be better to have a pseudonym. Yes. Absolutely. And that's why it should be something like, you know, dick. But, you know, fifty seven or whatever I don't. I mean, something just completely sophisticated and you know, business friendly or maybe just dog John Dong. John Dong John Don, Don long, Don Johnson. Don, long Johnson dog John dunk. John whom? Right now, I was gonna say Mao Zedong, but that that's an actual. No, no, no, no, strong is. Okay, anyways. So you've make up your name. No str-. No str-. What's another name? We we inner Weiner, man. Weiner, man, if your name Weiner, man, I am we know man. Wait. What's good? What's good presidential name here Mousa dog? Wait, we what about Dick Cheney, and then you can have dick. Oh, that would be great. You could have chain for your dick. It's just Dick Cheney. Pinch. God sounds a heavy heavy. Oh god. It'll build your core. Strength to keep on. Oh, it'll be so sweaty and heavy. Okay. Fine. Dick, Cheney's not a good one. I'm just spitballing here guys. Brainstorm. I'm Dick Cheney. Good one, very good one. Yeah. We're or gorge W Bush. Oh, well, that's nice, man. That's a good one. Oh, man or a Trump stuff. A rage in Reagan Reagan. Oh my God. I think I've done with this. I this is turned into a lot of Dong in. It really did meet Jimmy harder. It ain't kinda. Kinda. Slogan. Not a name. Oh Williams shafts will any William Howard shop. So. Oh, yeah. Well, that's chatter. Say tricky, dick, you know, like, you know, next. Okay. I feel done with this question. Yeah. Make dick warmer a named after a president. And yeah, do president name and walk around with just wearing that. Yeah. Showcase the merchandise. Okay. All right. Let's let's move onto the next question. But before we do we have a quick segment. It is called judging a book by its cover self help for non-readers. So there's so many great self help books out there. But who wants to read them, we definitely do not. But we'll help you sound smart in front of your friends by telling you what it's about even if you haven't read it. So today's self-help book is called get your shit together. And that's by Sarah night. I don't know why the author is relevant. But here comes. Get your shit together. I'm pretty sure that this book is about getting your life in order, probably or. It is about gathering together. Oh, all. Oh, yes. All of you know, I said to do it. Big old farm feces. Okay. All right. Okay. Question to question too. Kyle. Would you like to read question too? Yeah. I got my shit together. All report to. How do I read question one? You sneaky Kyle. I'll yeah. You got me. The other too much. All right question to says, how do I get into the party life? I'm nineteen and knock going to college. I've moved to a new city where I know. No one, thankfully, it's not party. How do I get into it while not being in college? Sincerely, Tom party hardy. So you know to party, I don't know what that I think he means. I know how to party or maybe maybe a lot of words. No, I think what he's trying to say is the city is known to party like the city's not hurt. This is actual DJ's. Like, y'all one. Ex and then just rises up murders, tons of civilians, and it just like. Who? And then and then goes back down and smashes millions in like what the reading rainbow intro think those like some buildings like jumping up and down. That that's exactly right because that's the kind of partying on that is the kind of partying the DJ's. Like, yo yo who's got a new book and in the cities like I do take a look it's in. I was about to sing the song. But I can't. I know it's such a sad day. But anyway this. No, it we do you. We got it. Stuck in your head already? People. Don't know go look it up. And then you'll know it you could probably a minute will never leave your mind. Exactly. But anyway, let's enough. We'll save that for our reading rainbow podcasts check that out go to hyper V reading rainbow podcasts, and you can find us talking for six hours straight about reading rainbow. But that's the other side of the rainbows. Let's do anything. Let's stay on this side of the rainbow and talk about how to get into the party life. So step one for getting into the party life. You have no friends is that what you said. Yes. You know, no one. So fuck how do you get into the party life? You know, no one no party and go to it drives the streets waiting for to find balloon does out of the house, and then just walk in. I think that they should they should use my new app that I've developed a called party finder and just. Just log into the app and give permission to access your text message history and your location history. I don't know why needs your text messages, but it does. And and then. Developed a lie. Yes. I'll it's there. I don't know. More information good, right? Just say, yes and agree all the terms and conditions. Don't read them. And then anyways. So yeah. The party finder app is really convenient for people. Just like the question here who were looking parties, and they don't know anybody like it's a way to connect with parties happening near you. And I think that you should take a look, you know, let's check it out. That's a party finder. Oh. That's a great idea. Kyle. And so what I'm gonna do. Just like any great American is take it and steal it and make it better. So I think there should be out there called called Pender. And it's kind of like Tinder sounds a little bit like an Indian man's name. But it's called Pender. And and what you do is you scroll through parties that you're interested in. And then if you're interested, you swipe, right? And then if the party is interested, it will swipe right and you'll become a match, and then you could end up going to that party. That's awesome. It's location. Yeah. The lowdown. That is actually a fucking good idea. If you had if you wanted to throw a party, but yank God, no friends, but then you want to go to a party, and you ain't got no friends, then go to Pender, and then you can find party folks and parties, and then you find the right one, and you can go to it. Yeah. And then you'll know folks, they will invite you to parties on Pender. Oh my God. Do that's a gold mine waiting to happen. But I give access to all your text message history. That's the only way you need that you can't use the app without it while he probably doesn't have much text message history because he doesn't have any friends. So that's true. We need all of your phone records to. Yeah. We need as much information as possible. He doesn't have any friends. So he's not he's not gonna tax. He's going to call people all the time, and we need to all of your interests. Yeah. And access to future text messages and phone calls. Oh, my God and browser history as well. Browsing mode stuff. No more words access to all saved. Passwords. We not your little marks. We did you location all the time. Yes. Case we need access to all of your yelp reviews. Just to make sure. They here not do that says that he can make better mimosas than your local brunch place. Can make better ones. Right. Orange juice and shouldn't pan, but the orange juice washing fresh squeezed like some Tropicana. Up to Canada. Wait till you, try mon- Moses. All you saw deep bra. Okay tang. I don't I not like the person that we're creating here. This is disgusting even being okay? So anyway, download the app Pender and find a party swipe. Right. And then you need a good profile. So what are we going to say? How do we create this person's Pinter profile needs a good picture? Right. So what's a picture that shows that you are there for you? You are a crucial element to a party. You are like the fuck and croutons in a Caesar salad. One wanna eat. He's going to make sure that is not him. But they woman with with those dress, very scantily. Okay. I was going to say he should dress. I was gonna say you should dress up as an actual croutons. But I like that idea better. Yeah. Just be just or or or or could. Take a picture of himself as he could dress in drag and then when he shows up in their like, where's this person? Like, I am that person. So he's not really lying low. I think you should like is. She's just kind of lying. That's like that's like an awful idea from so many. All right fair enough. But what if you just took a picture of yourself next to the pyramids because that's one from asshole the aid because. Out of the party. Egypt. Walk me, the paramount, dude if you ever, but a Kanye west throws a party, and he sees some dude with on Pender that has pyramid picks. He's like bra bring that shit over here. All right, haven't gone. You can hang on a loan because no one else will up here. Tickle each other's fixtures. Finks tres. I said Spink Sers. Pretty good. Pretty good plan. Shrinks tres. Another example of another highbrow moment of. Okay. Anything else for this person? That's great advice for per limb. They're not gonna little okay. Sounds fantastic. Let's go onto the next question.

It doesn't save your progress. So like version coming soon. Yeah, we're working out. Anyway, let's go ahead and go on to question three. Anthony. Would you like to read question three? Yes. I this question. So are questioned threes. How not to be the runt of the group. I think it's his username. It's a fart Lord sixty. Far Lord ass. I'm always the runt always getting picked on and made fun of my friends last social groups, how do I get out of this role? Sincerely weeks, and I'm gonna call them far Lord. Sincerely, lord. Okay. So far, Lord I well. Okay. If you don't wanna be the runt. Probably pick. It username flash. Gamertag. I'm pretty sure it's probably the same thing. Don't be far Lord. Maybe just be like. Not far Lord. Anything like it is though because he's trying to pretend that he's not a runt his username as far Lord. You should be runt. Just call it like it is and own it. So arts, you're far runt or fart beta. Oh, my. Kate. Really gonna apt where? Oh, man. It's only in the beta stage, guys, we're just we're doing our forbidden. Liz. We're so high brow Jesus. Yes. Yes. Farts. Ever else? He said anyway in your friend, and social groups you always get picked on. I would say get really defense. No, no. No, no. No, no. Such a beta few defensive. Yeah. Find a flaw about every single one of your friends and just constantly focus on it. You have so many friends so that way every, but that's a way of establishing dominance. That's why that's why I'm the alpha this group because I whenever Anthony together. I'm like, Anthony, you know, your eyebrows. A really thin and he's like, oh, see exactly Anthony gets defensive Ron. Ron, and that's how I. Oh, just pick something really really strange and and. Very particular, very particular. I think that. He he should get a really aggressive German shepherd and always have this German shepherd with him on came out with. Yeah. And anytime they even try to like step to him that dog is going to growl and possibly bite them. And that's that's really good. Yeah. Like, that's like, you know, like Vladimir Putin does that you know, like he intimidates his political opponents by bringing a giant aggressive dog into the room. I think you should do the same thing, you know. And you'll be just like Russia. You'll be powerful, you know, not to be messed with you know, what I mean? Russia's not a runt. I'll tell you that. I feel like that's a great idea. But the dog it's a little big so bringing it everywhere might be difficult, but might be your dominance, you you'd bring that dog it shits where it wants. And you don't clean it up. Because. So you can bring. So when you go to the movie theater, and they're like, I'm sorry, sir. You can't bring the dog. And you're like, yes. I can you wanna you're like do you want to eaten by this dog? And they're like, okay, you're like would you like to tell the dog? And then they tried to tell the dog. Okay. Sorry. You can go just to spraying dominance. That's. Yeah. That's very of makes it a Mark the theater. So they know they know you from the smell. Yeah. Like come on with a run do that have bad ass dog. I don't think so maybe you should get a run German shepherd. So it's tiny, and you can carry it with you. Let's. Look, you what if you what if you had a little kind of like a shoulder saddle. So you could just rest on your shoulder. And then every time somebody gets like. Personal. He's in very stuck on the saddle portion of those five what did you what is that all five? What if you put it on your head? What if you just got a hat that was like a platform? Why doesn't it have good? You just wear like a satchel and put it in it. No. It's not a parent. It's a dog. But just a regular dog is so boring. You gotta make it. If you're going to really be alpha. You got to do something to spruce it up. Oh. No put a saddle on him and ride him around everywhere. See, that's that's a good idea. Nice a mountain sled dog and ride at everywhere. That's that'll be bad ass, and meet your enemies. Okay. I think now we're we're leaping outside the bounds of reality. We'll crime sorry. That dog saddle on hedge was. Not only is it realistic. It will be achieved by me. Tune in next week and Stephens dog eternal soon. So I think that's good. I think we covered that one. What do you think any other ways to not be the run to the group? I think. We're good. Get a dog get a get a really menacing dog. Yeah. That's a good one any other medicine pets that you could get what if you got a cat on. Yeah. We'll have to be really like, you know, that cat from mousehunt. Like that cat was really scared. That one bee movie in the nineties. Yeah. Hey, you know, you think about that? And you remember it must have been pretty good. I remember Nathan lane screaming his head off at mouse antics that mouse was bad ass duty was like he's cooler than Stuart little. That's for sure. So. It'll. Sastre the runt of the group. He needs a dog on his shoulder if any. So get a what if you just get a mouse, then that mouse terrorized everyone he showed everyone who is boss. Get an alpha mouse, bro. Arnel that way, Hugh's more. Like a beta mouse though, because didn't he just like like do antics to mess with him? He didn't like didn't strong, arm them. His just like undermined all their plans. I'm going to be honest with you. I don't really remember anything about that movie. Exactly. Really? It's it's good. It's duty. You gotta watch your man. It's like it's fantastic in go ahead. No, no, go ahead. I was I was good. I was gonna see I don't remember anything about it. But I do think that there was a scene where he just came out of his whole and then just brawled Nathan lane. Knocked me over at a he just flat foot fell on his back. Yeah. If I remember correctly, he made Nathan lane a plate of Radha ratatouille. We and then shoved it in his face and beat the shit out of him. Yeah. He knocked him. The fuck out does that five ago goes west is that? Yes, they were in they were in the wild west where he made ready to eat. And then. Beat up Nathan lane due date. They made that from the book to give a mouse a cookie, right? Oh my God. That's guy's been so many mice movies mouth. Holy shit. So. If you take a mouse to the wild west of Australia, and it makes rats and then terrorizes Nathan lane. Then you've gotta mix you've got the best crossover in history. I can't. I can't. And then fern gully just said fern gully, they're mice in that movie. I think like is a mouse. But it's not like. There is he just dies silly. Because he's so beta. Just gets sawed in half with the tree. Oh, that's uncovers. And man. About save the tree in the Saudis goes right through it. But let's move on shall we? So get a dog or a mouse. That's what we're saying. Right. Yes word. Okay. Cool last question, I need sandpaper. Hello, I need Sam paper. But I don't have Sam paper. Is there? A solution that doesn't mean going to buy some I don't need desperately. But please give an answer. Thanks so much. Sincerely in a rough spot. No. He probably. You've got to go are you near the ocean? Like is there? I mean, are you near a beach or? You know, get put some glue on the piece of paper and then. Down to the down to the beach. You got yourself assume sandpaper. It was free except that you had to spend money on glue and paper. So I mean, I don't know. What's true? Do you have any if you're if you're not? If you're not near the beach. Maybe you can. Can you isn't sand? Basically, very small bits of glass. Do you have any glass bottles in the house that you can just break shadow on the floor? And crush up into tiny tiny tiny little bit because I feel like if you do that then you've got some and then get the glue in the paper, and then you've got sandpaper. Boom. Damn. That's that's pretty ingenious. Actually, I think. You know, how without going to buy some could do you have a cat because cats tongues are rather abrasive. So you could just use your ope whole prop open your cat's mouth. And then just have. It lik whatever would you need to smooth out or whatever it is. Very adorable idea. But I don't think I don't sell if you're out like that very much. That's true. That is pretty pretty awful to a cat. Do you have a mount I feel like mice tongues or even more? What else is a breakthrough sharpest this sharpest tongues. Yeah. I think you're just gonna have to buy Sam paper. Yeah. I mean got to buckle down. Man. You could you know, you could just trim your beard down to the skin level. You know, where it's all briskly and. And then scrape your face against whatever it is. You're trying to sand. Maybe the nice the nice splinter deck that your spend three paint. Yeah. If you're gonna I mean, look, man, I mean, we're talking about frugality here, and using what you have around you the resources you have available to you, which includes your face and your head. So you should use it. You know what? I mean. No pain. No gain pain. No. Yeah. Exactly. Not good that man you Jerry would finish deck without the little splinters. 'cause you're gonna you're gonna say your deck and then by pate or finished refinisher deck, but you yeah. Yeah. Not even a sheet, not even worse sheet. Yeah. Diametrically opposed to San paper, he had lick not in my house like to shave your whole body, and then wait for it to grow some subtle. And then rub every inch of your body that grows hair rall. Sanding that. Dude in you'll be like such a bad ass. You know, it'll be like bragging rights, you know, like, look what I did with my body, you know, and and then just show your wounds, like if anybody even even mentions like, hey hurt. I hurt myself doing this whatever be like, oh, well, check this out. And then like take your shirt off or just whatever, I guess you used every inch of your body. So you don't even need to take clothing off look at this. And then she'll them the deck that you sanded sanded and also on top of that he'll save money on the stain because he can his blood for that. True. Would I feel like after he's done with this? He's gonna look like an image from biology book or an anatomy book where just shows is going to look like he's going to look like fucking Jesus. And that that movie with what's his name made yet? One of the just like there's beating the shit out of Jesus for like two Mel Gibson. Yeah. No gibson. Yeah. Beating yeah. That's gonna look like, funnily. No god. That's they actually did that because they needed Sam paper. So. You just looked pretty bad ass though. I mean, you got to admit like if you saw that dude like on the street with all that shit like you wouldn't mess with them. You know what I mean? Chill. He definitely was not the run to the group. That's why he was in the front and then the two are on the sides. Yeah. Dude, fart. Lord, sixty nine could really take some lessons from this one. Maybe we should apply. The same answer those questions crucified in front. I was gonna say this use your body's sandpaper. Oh, okay. Yeah. They don't have people beat the shit. Hugh. Got my that might reinforce your status. I don't know. For jesus. Anyway. So either rub your skin raw or use a cat's tongue or crush up all the glass, bottles and glass. A you have on your floor. And then get a piece of paper with some glue. And pick it all up or you're going to have to go and buy some sandpaper. The week persons option the person the lame. Oh, who won't think outside the box? You know, the person with the no grit will to brace yourself when you go to the store, and you're like I'd like sheet of sandpaper and they're like. Bitch. Pose? Take to get in peop-. I'll do for. Do you need help? Oh, yeah. Oh, I'm sorry. You need the sandpaper. Yes, right next to the tampons. Oh, we have an entire I'll for that. Uh-huh. You walk down that aisle people to start pointing and laughing at you. The cashier just sort of you. Mothers just cover their children's is. Where's she going? Mommy. Don't like I'll tell you when you're older, sweetie. The cash that ugly. Look like, oh my God. He's buying Sam paper. What? Oh, yeah. Lou is earlier water runs. Put a beta. Okay. All right. I feel like we answered all of those questions thoroughly. Beautiful. All right, guys. That's the end of our episode before we go. We wanted to give some shots. Thank you to sergeant MC fifty Cal. Thank you. Rub one. Thank you to summers. Amina tim? Greta and Jordan before we go we're gonna leave you with some food for thought. And this question goes read it, and they say why is it? Okay.

Oh real pizza pants no kidding start a business to start a business. He's off off off the he's on the Lam if you will. Oh Yeah on the Lam. Yeah you've got your hand crooked wrist over there. It's crooked looks crooked things. Are you right handed. Yeah and just so happens you have a right handed injury. Yeah we'll not an injury I had surgery carpal tunnel. Yeah does it. It did it work. Does it feel better crazy. Yeah vizier left. One hurt more yes. It's the pain from the left hand because he probably notice it. More pain in the left hand wasn't nearly as bad as the pain in the right hand but I haven't really felt a whole lot a lot of feeling in my fingertips in three years. Yeah and I woke up and was moving them around. And it's it's kind of weird. Yeah actually have function. Yeah the hand. Well Yeah I mean I had functioned to begin with so they move the tendon. So it's got a shorter path. So they cut the the ligament that goes over the tendons tendons in the nerve to open the carpal tunnel. Yes they cut the ligament the tunnel of the carpet and then he spread out everything and move everything around and he came back and he told me he goes. Yeah everything was pretty tight in there. So it's no wonder do they just like cut you open and just like fluff fluffer around because it keeps seeing things like tight and spread equal spreading go. I said spread around. It does okay the next topic. Do you have any news. Christopher I don't I don't know I don't really have any news. How you I have one thing that I want to talk about and I just want to hammer this home? That the movie doolittle is awful. Yeah well you haven't seen it. No I haven't but everyone it's like taking twitter by storm. I realize is taking the Internet by storm because it is not a good good movie. And here's can I tell you what the ending is. I'm GONNA tell you anyway regardless of you wanting to know alerts it. It's ridiculous so do little is a doctor and they are going to save this clean lady. Apparently and she is in a dragon's den. Okay Okay and they find a dragon. The dragon super mean grumpy. All the time and you know why because he has a pair of bagpipes shoved up his rectum. So you know the doctor does gives them a colonoscopy pulled. The bagpipes out. That's the end of this movie. Sounds like a great movie I Yeah so that's what so. Many people sending doesn't make bag as soon as he pulls the bagpipes out it farts in doolittle's face. I mean I love this good slapstick. Humor get Robert Downey Junior. I have no idea. Apparently money he was for it. What about the scene with the grill when he looks at? You don't happen to be scared. Yeah Oh man ride in the trailer. So John. CENA is the voice of A polar bear on the movie and as soon as he pulls the bagpipes out. And then this dragging farts in his face He says teamwork makes the Dream Mark. Well it out. It's just there's so many little catchphrases apparently in this movie. That are just awful awful writing that I need you to go see it. I'm going to go see so that I can find out how terrible it is. Heather once say you've got like a thirteen percent rotten tomatoes right and if you say you enjoyed this you have no credit like after this like you. Don't what did I take care for Star Wars. That would be ridiculous. You wouldn't be on the show anymore. I mean I'd have to replace you. We'll see we'll see Jerry. I don't know I don't know either but it was just terrible but there are so many people that have said that they've only wanted now that they know that Dr Or do little desert colonoscopy to save a dragon or to make a dragon nice every single one of them have said. I need to see this movie that I saw now that I've heard this so so I don't think it's doing any better business because of that though. Well I probably won't see it just because I don't I'm going on vacation nations soon and I don't know how I can have time. There's going to be enough time. I don't think so ken too much recreating. We might go to bed. Bath and beyond Alex has got time mm all day long. He does Zoro see doolittle. The wife wants to kids. So so how. How is this How long do you offer six weeks? I've been off since December sixth and the US this nice beard that I got growing pretty sweet. I like like the radio city Brewing hat to. It's my favorite local. Bruce Yeah the last time you're here I think he wore a radium city. You started that company with like three or your friends there. In Ottawa Annoy they used to selling liquor stores. They don't want any more right now they It became too much worse for the Keg. Only no I actually couldn't tell you where the kegs being distributed to anymore. Because I know they got at What's the one eighty? Can you be. Shakers Shaker yeah. Can you be red dog like I guess you can but I was going to say. Can you be a profitable brewery by only selling kegs. It takes a long time to make any profit along. I would think you make more most of your money on the kegs eggs because the overhead is so low. I mean the fear itself cost very little to me. Yeah I would assume so. It's your bottling pack. Jack and I would say it costs money which ends on and the Bar Pride takes most of the markup wholesale to the bar you know they're or selling it for a premium then sure Ed's beer. It's funny to see now light years of paying for Craft Beers at bars and what they're getting getting because I know that they're getting a sixth. A lot of places aren't getting a full half barrel that are getting sex so what they're selling per pint and what it cost how much they're getting for that versus where we're telling them for wholesale pretty crazy how much they're making on each well and the thing is like they make amazing beer. Yeah like I like craft beer and I've tried a lot of craft beers and nothing really ever wows me too much but every single one of the Radio City Beers I drink is phenomenal. I've never had it. I don't know if I've ever had one of my favorites. Doubts ever is clock out stout. It's like a standard. They got that space ace man. Ip a stout rates. I've heard of that. The space man blackboard that came later. That's a black a black. That's pretty good but none of their I t.. As are strong and happy very subtle. Yeah we we. We went for the more. Not Way more drinkable Mac. You in the face this every time as much as the one guy. He's a hop head that's all he wants is the most bitter thing that you can make give it to them. I was surprised. They haven't started making sours hours like that. It's a lot of work. It's a little and it's got to be Super fresh to write pretty much. Do you know house towers started. It's an infected beer. That's ultimately what happened. But it's drinkable like mad. Cow Infected. No no no no. It's like so like when it ferment. That needs to be a completely closed container. No air can get in it so no bacteria or anything. Basically what had happened was the first hour that was ever made bacteria got into the fermenters. Somehow it soured the beer so is that that's similar to like a Sour Mash whiskey distilled the processes still make a sour Nashoba. There's a completely different thing between us. Distilled alcohol and a fermented alcohol. I understand but for this you are for mending the grain to distill the beginning processes for the beginning process whiskey. Yes there's there's always a mashing that's interesting about whisky and any liquor honestly is like they all make a big deal about the beginning process. But it's all irrelevant after the distillation process. This irrelevant her elephants. Are you saying elephants up. Call that all relevant because you're just ending up with clean because it right or make sure you're not getting one hundred percent ethanol because he'll yeah but basically you're getting straight whatever that chemical is and then I mean obviously Z.. Whiskey your than aging barrels. So that's where you're getting a lot of your flavor from but you think you're really matters if you're starting from corn or rice or any other grain aim to make whiskey. I think carries through the distillation process because it is evaporated clearly does because every different WAIKIKI. That you've had that has has different grains in it tastes differently but they're also aged differently. Not all of them. I don't think it makes us big not. All all of them are our age differently and then like for Scotch Whisky. They have a certain mixture of grain. That is used for the man. I understand that but I don't what I don't know if it actually makes a difference so scotch is age completely differently than okay aged in. Have you ever had like a ride bourbon versus a regular bourbon like bullet bullet ride versus bullet Bourbon. Absolutely okay can you taste the difference soon. The two of them I mean but again I think I don't know maybe some of that's just the age they agem differently. Not If you're aging. I'm in a white oak barrel or a charred barrel age. I'm the exact same amount of time up in the exact same barrel I suppose right an adult is one thing. I'm a little more skeptical when it comes to clear alcohol vodka that I would agree with. I don't I don't know if that is a big difference because you can take There's like potato vodka and then there's what what else there's a bunch of different kinds but we'll people swear where by the differences in vodka. But when I was in college I had a marketing class that was marketing statistics class. Anyway in this class we did a blind taste test of different different vodkas. I don't know why that's quite the we had like ten different. I don't remember what the professor was trying to do. Other than. Maybe just we're just get you drunk. Yeah Yeah but we did a blind taste test but like skull vodka and like grey goose and like absolute you know spy span or whatever. It's kettle title one all like good whiskey good and bad but it was a one hundred percent blind. Think nobody can tell the difference between them. That's because at the base of them there on mainly mainly the same the same right just straight alcohol. The biggest difference between them is how many times they're distilled smear says it's triple distilled say maybe maybe that does make it more pure. That's why you have less of a hangover people. Say I don't say that that might be your perception but flavor and taste wise. Yes they are they are you cannot tell them apart. They're the same. I mean it's bad go. That's kind of what I think. Now like whiskies not not the case because the aging process changes everything Tequila. Same thing a lot of other Even Jin aged juniper berries after the distillation but like you know I don't know yeah I agree with you. Okay that's Alcohol talk what other than if you had jerry. That's that's it. I didn't really have much. I I know there is more. Oh Oh what was. His name passed away today from Monty Python. Oh Yeah Terry Terry we cruise. No no he is not a British white man. But I do really like Terry crews I do too. It's really good But it was Terry Jones. Terry Jones Yeah he was one of the original is up. What seventy three seventy seven seventy seven? So young pretty young. Yeah a he passed away so that said news and we were just talking about Monty python a lot on our top ten fantasy. Don't remember who he was in that movie exactly but I don't know he's he's at all those movies but yeah oh there was another little piece of news that the first images of Captain America came out from Falcon in the winter soldier. And there is a different white male in the captain captain. America's suit standing at a government building holding a shield which is supporting a theory that the government in this show like the government didn't want Fell Ken to be Captain America because of his Because of what happened in civil war he what was it called. He broke that treaty. Or I can't remember Sarko via the Sarkova agreement so I think in the like the talk is that they're still holding that against him. Said you cannot work for the government or be Captain America because of this. So they're giving giving in to somebody else. How he got the shield though nobody really knows but he unless they've made a different one or if this guy is a like a fake? Nobody really knows. But there is images of a white male in the Captain America outfit from filming so and see what happens there. Ah Wyatt Russell yes cool. Yeah so that's all that Kurt Russell Son. It's Keri Russell's brother brother is Keri Russell. Kurt Russell son no cousin Oh auntie maybe ah continue. Should we do some what we're watching. Yeah well I got a one news just one. Because I've had a lot of guests. Don't bring news I brought. I brought legitimate. Oh we should get into this. Since I've had a lot of free time he's got a free time and Alex brought us a little gift do for for the future podcast studio. Oh for the future. PODCAST studio I will hold it up real quick so you you could see how big it is also there was it says fragile fragile fragile messy. MCS Industries I've always liked MCS industries. Every time I've got anything there I will try to open this. Don't cut your hand. It's just scotch tape areas opening the package. He's doing a PISS poor job. You're here's scratch. I'm pretty excited about this. I feel like some kind of a painting of some kind or with low sir. Oh my gosh. It's framed. Holy the CAL that all puzzle. Is that a puzzle. You did. Yeah you about six to eight hours and you had it framed. Yeah that's amazing. Is it like glued. Yeah Yeah Oh you know just glued. Oh just glued on. How do you glued on top puzzle housing glue thing? That's like you sit role at are you just pour it on and comes with a little scraper and you just brush it all over. Wow this is OUGHTA drive. That's super that is definitely going on to my podcast. Studio Walk Star Wars picks. That'll fit right. Yeah I did another one. It was a Batman like all the villains and stuff in it and I was going to give that to you guys but then I really liked it a lot so I don't the one that that one took me like three days so you're a bit of a puzzle master puzzle or just something to do other than sitting. I agree I started to do puzzles. But you can't really play video games. You kind of have you played a fallen order. I haven't played that he says it's one of the greatest games. Well I didn't definitely did not say that. Probably the single greatest game now. It's not it has a great ending though it's not the it's not that great of a game but it has has a very good evening. Yeah you said that made the whole game I did. It made it worth it for me to look into still waiting for that disk anyway. Thank you very much. We're definitely GONNA hang that up. That's awesome. Let me see that again. I had was that spanning all movies now the new hope straight up right basically. Yeah that's awesome. I love it. It's got a grand off. That's really cool. Thank you you. I'm not a big puzzle myself. I like them. You like Amy Nice. Started doing puzzle over Christmas break. It's still sitting on a table able. Oh my card table in the house right now finished a satisfaction out of it. We spent three hours together just sitting there while all the boys were like doing something I don't know we really did not pay attention to the children at all and we sat there together. It was really fun. Actually actually the last puzzle McConnell one that threw me off. Puzzles is when I was in high school or so for Christmas or something I got a. I think it was called an impossible like impossible puzzle. Okay that sounds tear. It was a whole puzzle. That was the same it was in an ocean and it was the same picture of like this orange clown fish repeated over and over a million times. No and I'm like what is the point of this. Yeah that's not not fun and then I also had around the same timeframe one of those three D. Empire State Building Puzzles. Oh Yeah I can't remember what they were called those compaign Sahara to man that was brutal. Well why were you choosing all these. Like Puzzles Puzzles. Choose Major No. That wouldn't actually was pretty easy because that one looks like it has a lot of different things so different colors so like you just pour the pieces out all right. I want all the everything that's got blue in it and you grab all the blues and then you sit there and you do it. But the Batman one black no because it was like Gotham. Gotham city was in there. Well like vintage Batman like sixty six. It was actually a Thomas Kincaid So it was like an original all like a piece. Yeah like a commission. Yeah that's cool. We should do a SNARF fuck puzzle. Should I don't make I knew him puzzles main for sure for sure. Can we just sit here and cut out pieces like can you. Can you see that kind of but we we could totally have a puzzle man. Oh yeah that could be if you're a patriot. Dot Com Amer. Can you see it up there. No not really okay. Sorry it's a Batman one where he's coming like jumping in there was a lot of black and that and the other thing was with all the buildings like I literally had to look at each piece piece and then look at the poster that came with it. Now what Robin do you think that is. I mean I know. But I didn't even Scott Damian Wayne. I didn't even pay attention. I love being just kind of in the background there but then you had a hostess Meredith Penguin two and then figure out which building it was by the way the windows looked. It was pretty cool but how long that takes you the Batman one four days. It was a pain if you recover. You're just going right back and getting the other hand. I know you're GONNA wait till next year. I wasn't expecting for my hand to feel as good as it did. And now you're like Marie. This surgery part is Amari off and I still have time that I can use. What is it like going from? I don't know three five years. Whatever it's span of straight swing shift to that like two months off well? After the first three weeks I caught up on all the sleep that I had been missing and now I'm back into because I'm a night owl. I can't sleep and it's up till two four o'clock in the morning on my Gosh and then I sleep on the couch and Maj ever gonNA come to bed. The oil sleep on the couch last week spending easier because I'm supposed to keep my hand elevated and and the one time I slept in bed after like five days I think I slept on my hand. My arm hurt the whole day the next day. I'm like non sleeping on the couch. Which again all you've been planning Disney trip? I know that because you're missing me ballpark in it. We're just bored and well the wife and I know that we need to get it. The kids are getting old enough to where they'll appreciate it and Yeah Zurich Ages for that. Yeah for sure. We've had that conversation before for a couple of times All right so jerry. What you've been watching so again I've been I brought it up once before but I haven't quite finished it yet but Cologne watched like one episode of night. You know basically fall asleep Is Jack Ryan Boyd watching that too. If it's good enjoyed a lot I like it better than the first season I think. Definitely it's really a solid show. Yeah it's so good John Kaczynski's amazing I don't know the other actor's name he's good though to he's like a good straight man you know where he's just angry all the time. He was in suits but I never watched that show in the wire he was in the wire to You know I've I haven't seen all of the wire I've seen it but I don't remember him from it. Yeah he's that's where it goes like. That was like I big thing. He was as whoever the main character is in the wire. He was his best friend that was he was like his partner for a little bit and then over the I haven't and watch the wiring so long I know it's been like the last couple of years and tried to re watch it because I don't remember it and I couldn't like the production value was like not good. It's too far back. I loved it. I watched it a year ago. Yard half ago. Yeah I'll give it another shot can have you have. You watched the Jack Ryan the new season. I have not the wife and I have been made into and have you watched any of it. I watched the first. We came out. Man I like it a lot. It's different than I like how it's similar but it is different than what the first season and I just. It's the Action Shell that I needed because we don't really have like a like a crime action show. That is on Netflix. Or any other channel right you get the regular Like cop shows towns. Brigham Cop shows on ABC or NBC. Or things like that but I'm talking talking like big budget. Yes streaming show. You know like they spent money on this show. Yeah feels like they could've made a movie. Yeah I'm glad they believe they could no. I think this is so much better than series way better than the movies are just I think they are. They are not with Amazon. Kazan has made huge strides forward surpassed all the other streaming channels. Maybe the exception being HBO. But they're putting ounce else such amazing content. It's just not as on on a regular that's what I was GONNA say. It's it's few and far between though on what comes out. Relatively net affleck says just bombarding you with content and its media but a lot of. It's been much but just who it's almost two. Oh here is some news that I did hear. Just I read just today before I came. Is that Netflix release that the witcher is now the highest stir like the most streamed aimed shot Joe in net flicks history holy cow. That's amazing. Yeah glad of that on top of the beat the office. I find that impossible. Go for I'm I'm saying. For All Ranger Net flicks original shows it the according to them they never put out any numbers. And you never know well if Netflix is like really telling the truth or not on a lot of the things that they've reported for users and young's and whatnot but they're claiming as of right right now that the winter is the most streamed show in Netflix. For good reason it's amazing so it is and there's so many people that have watched that show it's really caught an old two the track and they've released a that one song as a single now. Yeah and it's charting. It is because it gets buried into your skull skull it will never leave. Call Sikora to your wits circuit over to Youtube that I follow. Low Leo Braci Alley Ma. Yes frankly broadly studios. He did a version of love of that song. I wanted to get the chocolate. Ray GotTa do it all rain Tall so cold and to your witcher off. Take Zondi I How does he know that I used to work in an office? But we're I'd be given two hours of work and was told make this last the rest of the day so so you don't get don't get caught on the Internet. You know how you get into like youtube warm moles and just next the video knuckle video yes I do. I know how that works so the next thing I watched. I've only got two things here that I've been watching is the I can't remember the exact name of it but it's the whole Aaron Hernandez Oh Marley watch that it's interesting. Yeah she she She said Marley. Charlie said it's not good. I can't stop watching it right. I don't you can't rate this on good or bad because it's just telling you it just like telling you the the narrative of how this man went from playing football all the time in his life to getting in trouble and ending adding up killing people in continuing on with his football career like nothing happened and then being arrested and ended up killing himself In the the bad part I this is just my opinion though so there is a story like an underlying story of him being a closet homosexual. I'm a sexual yet. They say that he possibly was gay but he wouldn't tell anybody else out loud. Sounds like he was. Yeah it sounds like he was but they it to me. It looks like they're playing that off as to why he was killing people when in reality like that. CTE DT brain issue that people get from the NFL that has a proven thing where it literally takes your brain autopsy. Bring this one of the worst I have ever seen exactly so. That's still not an excuse because there's a lot of there's not that don't murder no. I'm not saying it's an excuse to murder people I'm saying. Why would you put a show out that? You're kinda pinpointing his homosexuality as why he was aggressive and killing people rather than say like well. His brain was so damaged that the real cause was probably because of this brain damage that he had rather than him just being well aggressive served. Because he's hiding and I didn't see all of it but Marley pretty much told me everything about it. Sounded to me like they're making the case for like it's a bunch of things. It's like a terrible home life. A bad thing happened when he was a kid. HAS IT HOMO sexuality. Cte Yeah the whole thing to me is fascinating because I mean I'm going to go on record right now. I will never let my kids play football now and we. It's just not going to happen. I mean there's too much evidence out there now. Now especially when they're young and developing. Yeah Amy's in the same boat ridiculous. At first. At first I was against that I was like what they could play football but then it again like the more and more you see about so many injuries and so many and now they know isn't it's not big hits. It's the little yeah to every day. The practices the constant a constant nature of it. And don't get me wrong. You could see from things other than just football sure. I mean you can get the little traumatic brain injuries from you. Know racing from driving that car from going from driving go karts it's magnum significantly Because there was so much head contact even though you can say like there's no head to head hitting and you can't lead with your head things like that. It doesn't matter. I don't think sports going to be Long for this world at the. I don't think it'll go an high school level at the at the under high school level for sure. I think we'll still still see it at the high school level for quite a while. Because it's I mean it is an enormous out of the South Texas. You can't Alabama like all. Those states are huge into football. I mean you lounge closed down more Friday nights right redskin pride. I know it's crazy but I mean the evidence is insurmountable at this point. They were showing you know C. T. Scans of brains and stuff stuff of They did a junior CEO yes he had committed suicide and they showed his brain compared to a normal brain and they it just doesn't even look representative of what a normal brain would look like crazy too because a lot of the damage It's an interesting topic. We talked about it a lot in college and psychology classes but a lot of the damage occurs to the frontal lobe. Yeah and it's not specific CORTEX and that is the part of your brain. That's responsible for for like understanding consequences have actions like long-term planning. Isn't it like I'm making all like yeah impulse control decision making so. There's a lot of arguments in in the cycle. Psychology World That when you start to look at prisoners and repeat prisoners and people that are in jail a lot of times what you find is that they have underdeveloped or abnormally developed or damaged frontal cortex and some of that's caused by nutrition in the womb and Eddie young age so that frontal cortex develops a lot in the later part of pregnancy pregnancy. And then in early in the first five years of life. And if you don't have the right Nutritional setting like it will underdeveloped that frontal cortex and it will basically basically put can can put you on a path. So you're saying like malnutrition in the womb creates can't gangsters. Yeah I I mean not add people. That's part of the argument and the argument is that can you take people in prison. And when they have had this situation happen to them now they have this Badly developed frontal CORTEX so they have no impulse. Control is a big thing right with that also like Understanding consequences of your actions and so can you really put those people to blame for some of the actions that they're committing because they literally and you can have this out there. Yeah it's out of their control and you can have damage that frontal CORTEX and not be. I'm not saying like you have a disability. Like mentally like you literally just cannot make make you cannot control your impulses so like relation where you might be spurred to violence. You can't damper that down and think about like like well if I do that. It's going to lead to this series of actions that's going to fuck up the rest of my life but beyond the nutrition part of it. Isn't it true that your your whole frontal cortex hasn't even developed until you're twenty five. That's true honor percents so everything that happens between the Before the age of twenty five that you're doing to your head as as if playing football or some sort of contact sport could be detrimental to that prognosis that Cigarettes alcohol sure all all these kinds of things and the the signs isn't truly settled on the twenty five. That's just guessing at that early though. But it's I mean twenty five. What they're going with now? Yeah so there's a lot of people that and that's why teenagers are so stupid that's why they don't think about their future and they well and when they do it's completely irrational a lot of it and it gets better and it gets more developed. The older you get but even twenty one years old. You don't know what you're doing and that's when you start to have that at thirty thirty five or whatever you start to have that hindsight of like Manuel why was I. What am I doing? What do you think that your life? I changes dramatically twenty five years old. I agree I really do agree with that looking back on it but the only you know you've lived through it already so it is easier to say we'll so obviously I was going to do that wrong because you've already lived it but I would agree with you that something changes in everybody's life after a certain point in their twenties whether it be twenty five or not. I can't pinpoint it but I know for a fact something changed in my brain you know after a certain point because I it was dumb as a brick when my early twenties I know that much. Yeah I mean the impulse control the consequences but also like the arrogance of youth. I mean that's all needed to that. Frontal CORTEX so it's interesting argument that people that are in prison. That have had these issues like should they even be in prison. How do you? How do you assign blame? Yeah but how do you wade through that right you know like how do I mean if they've committed a crime regardless of well although there is is like you said before like that doesn't give him the reason to kill some correct let me reframe. It should be addressing. The problem differently should be addressing it for prenatal care so we addressing it through your child. Nutrition should be addressing through things like that in a in away that's going to have a more beneficial impact towards what happens. Twenty years down the road right and I think I do think You know like like the the full contact sports under a certain age should just not happen. Yeah I agree so there you go. That's the show I watched. LX is here to what about what about smacking your kids around. Is that okay. You can't be repetitive. Like like WH- wants and put them down. Yeah I get up I dare you you make it count and make picture. Their head doesn't hit the floor after you. Well that can't happen. I usually don't even have to do that. That's board my son. Deals zone damage. Image to himself. He fell off the couch earlier this afternoon and smacked his head off recliner. And as long as it's not three times height that's what I've been told at three told told you that my console at but that's a apparently if your kid falls from less than three Times its height your good. If it's over three times or you gotta take him to year. I mean I would agree with the over three times. You're going to the ER but how hundred three three times their height. I still think you could get pretty severe. Cash tripped the pavement and broke his jaw. So exactly that slide that your kid fell off of it. That was way more than three times. He fell but he fell in rubber. Mole he did he shot out. I don't care if it was rubber molter not that Lagos scratched up and I felt terrible. I didn't feel bad for him at all. I didn't get ahead of. You could see that he was far. The problem is the free. PREFRONTAL CORTEX CORTEX. He didn't have good impulse and it's definitely not going to grow right after that he should. I'm soaking wet all put soaking. What kids on I? I shouldn't go down the slide and fizz ball. They were being yelled at prior to this about not going down that slide and he chose not to listen and he shot straight off the side of it. Unbelievable all right. We're GONNA keep this moving. We got a lot minutes. You have eleven minutes Alex. We've been watching. What do you got? I have been watching every. Yeah a lot of stuff so I finished the witcher. The which and all that the toys toss a coin. What was your what was your take them? So I've been take your time but don't feel I've never played the Games. Read the book. Nothing so like you had a new blank so many questions. Yeah and if they don't address them or they will like I'm sure how did he get his powers in well she left and it took me address that took me lake often. There is what episodes so the sixth episode before I realize is that it was jumping between time period. Yes and I was like wow. Here's what you needed to number one thing you needed to do. While the show was going going on is listened to SNARF talk. 'cause we have would have addressed it but see I'm like three episodes behind guys. Oh here's the deal. Because I stole stole elven magic. They started have elephant magic they casino elephant. They had a major order. Whatever they destroyed the elves consensually cast them off they started making human hybrids are sterile? That had could harness the power of magic mills are the witcher's and for whatever reason they hunt monsters they're hired to and and there's other genetic mutants yes like a lot of the monsters are but the the witcher's are becoming more and more scarce I because they just hate them so they right and nobody's volunteering for it and they're sterile they're sterile and they're not making any more witcher's well and then that was another thing that I couldn't couldn't figure out 'cause vessel living forever. That girl looks like she has the exact same is is him. So he's like yeah so she can also control magic she can control okay. I'm serious magic. She screams in everything for of the number no no she's personalized. I'm talking about the girl that he's supposed to meet in. The Woods is destiny. Siri yet about her and I don't know about her either so like if you look at the way her eyes are going the way his eyes are like they look. Almost kind of chosen has the same thing that her mother had well. She's at the same thing that her grandma had. But it skipped Skip the natural Musici- clean that Queen Woman that got into the big fights. Jason was like actually fight battles. It skipped her her dog. He hates else. And she's Nile. Fan of hells elephants elephants. Ill will carry us. We met him. Yeah I just been something anyway go ahead go on. I finally went and watched star. Wars was the rise of skywalker. I liked it. Oh swearing said it like. You're mad at no. I'm not I haven't even listen to you guys is like I said I'm three episodes behind so I like it. I it was good. We do some nit-pick and can I see like the points that everybody makes and what I've maybe rather seen somebody else's writing maybe like Colin was to Varo. Yeah yeah that's a big thing right now. His grip got leaked and everybody loves it a yeah. Apparently apparently everybody likes issues. Did you read it. I looked into it. I didn't read the whole script but now finished before that I did watch gem and the the other day. Oh how was that. I've been wanting to see the yes. It got terrible. It's yeah it was a huge bomb at the box. It's not good. It's good to ours so so just all right. This is an action movie in its will Smith Like Will Smith Will Smith Times to it is but how can you not like that. Will Smith looks exactly like the age will smith he ki- kind of like they could have. I feel good for his age. I feel like the reason why they say Black Dome and looked at looked at a video of fresh friends. Alyssa can use whatever you want rather than just okay. This is will smith now and taking his face and Shag just taken his FRESH PRINCE OF BEL Air Face Right. Put It on a gay finished crisis on infinite. Earths I haven't seen any.

I've been watching the new season of twenty four days to Helen back. I A huge fan of Gordon Ramsay because in my kitchen nightmares was one of my favorite shows of all time. This is basically kitchen nightmares. I like his little commercial. which ones I use the cocktail? Stick Doc yeah they with this twenty four hours a hell and back. They added a little bit more. He's only got twenty. Four hours is dire. The restaurants aren't as dire dyers. They weren't kits Canada just a kitchen nightmares. The British version along side love it. Is this the one where he dresses up in like costume. Yeah which is ridiculous because clearly. Everybody knows it's going undercover boss. Yeah why are these cameras. Gordon Ramsay I do too like a lot of people hate him. I don't know why I get it. I watched his youtube videos. And I've learned more about cooking. I I've done it for years. Watch and they're so good they're simple and the biggest thing is is like like scrambling scrambling eggs. All He makes. He's got the best one about making an Omelette a yes. I'm answering. His stake one about making a stake. Is the the best way to cook a steak ever hands out here you yes I agree and I do it this way. I Cook stakes in this only way. I Cook Omelettes and eggs. He has is a He has a Teaching show that was only on BBC but I it's on Youtube now and It's amazing it's I. Love like his passion for it but also like that. He really conveys a lot of emotion. He does everything he talks about is like he's in love with this food but not even though like he cares like I feel like he genuinely cares about what he's doing and he just seems like a really genuine person completely agree. I've only been to one of his restaurants once in in Las Vegas and it wasn't like one of Nice restaurants. It was like one of his Burger Bar. Oh yeah and it was. It was really good. But I'd like to go Tanegashima. One of his five Vegas restaurants all Michelin Star rated. Yes I would too. I've never been to any of them. So that's what I've been watching that and I'm enjoying that. I started watching the new season of curb. Your enthusiasm did you. Yeah and it's just Kirk Right back in it man. Yeah it's curb love can't go wrong with that. I liked Larry David's involved. You know it's going to be absolutely I got one I gave up on marvelous. Mrs Mazel you gave up on it it through in the top. Did you really just. Is this the second or third season started season. 'cause I thought you liked the first one I did. But but there's too much other stuff to watch. Carrie L. Use the new season you've got to you really do have to pick. There's so many the cream of the crop you know. I've only done that with one show. What's the walking you through unless there's too many season? Unfortunately I threw in the towel at the last season as UH when they made the ten year time jump. I didn't even get to that. Yeah no I wasn't even close to that. They got a new show coming on spring a new walking that show. That's ten years in the future deals with the second generation that has been living in. Just I actually thought that sounds interest- it does Kinda some kids that grew up. In in the post apocalyptic of you know I would I would be in for that and they're going to movies gone. I only made it through the very first season. Where Jeffrey Dean Morgan was? He's tough when we're NAGIN was actually turned out like we were just talking about the other day on the shows a a little too much to handle all. That's all I saw. was that very first. She is in the comic book too. He's he's a major role in that series for sure but I feel like he's he's a little more palpable. I don't know in the comic book. He is like the epitome of evil and in the TV series they try to like his the epitome of annoying. Well I think they have to do that. If a sympathetic view well you look at his dialogue logging the book they can't put that on. AMC right so probably have to up his dialogue on the show. Well I think that's also an issue of when you do something thing like that in comics like it's easy to just think of like. Oh that's the evil bad guy you know this is that but when you on TV and then and you see the guy that you've seen a million other things like oh you know he's not always that big and it doesn't translate the film as well or digital. Yeah that's why I quit watching the show and I think that's why everyone else should. I'm still going to catch up back the rest of Cancer it so much I just felt like it was so repetitive. It was the same thing over and over. Honestly that's not the problem. The problem is that free view an individual episode episode basis. Nothing happens right. Nothing happens to advance the story. Forward all the story is given to you in season premieres mirrors season and mid mid rakes. midseason coming back and season finale. Everything else in the mental is complete filler. And it's so boring and see its character development but I feel like the show that did that the bass was breaking bad or loss. But breaking bad you had a huge episode and then two or three episodes where it was now a whole lot happened. They advance the story so much. I mean they had to advance the story so much faster because because it was there was a lot of middle episodes that were there. Were there slow in dairy slow. When you get to that next big climactic episode those those smaller slower episodes make more sense? I think every episode at the end of breaking bad definitely the end of every episode. They left you at the end of every episode. You you gain something from it. I I agree with you. The first thirty five minutes could have been slow. I agree they've awesome last season. A little bit news yes call Saul and they said that which is a better show than they said. Walter White and Jesse Pink men could be making an appearance. I'm I'm sure they will. Okay new show. I started watching only one episode out. Hbo It's called Avenue. Five starring Hugh. Laurie and Josh. Josh Gad really there on a cruise what. What's your view on Avenue Avenue? Five it's chock full of comedy stars It's getting terrible reviews but I really really enjoyed it. I loved it. I thought it was really funny. It's comedy comedy. He caught my attention when I first saw a like a trailer preview for it so I didn't realize it was out already though so I'm going to need to check it out only one episode but I Italy. I thought it was great. Is that week by week week by week but I really thought it was. I think it comes on after curb or whatever but I enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to keep watching it and I like Hugh Laurie in anything. It's getting really bad reviews from one episode. Yeah so watchman got bad reviews it did after one episode and those people eight Cryer dumb. Because that's the best show. All of those people have been fired. I started watching a little shaw called. peaky blinders one. That I want to start watching. Oh you haven't seen. I watched the first episode third the first season fire it very hard to get through but I did finish it and watched the second episode and I fell asleep. Three times is watching the second episode. So we'll see how that goes you just can't let what do people do. They have to sing and dance in front of you like you have to to watch the story playoff. This has happened three times in my life. I've tried to start this show and just having the hardest time with it. I think you've got a thing in your brain like a just a mental Ninja in your brain tells you you have to hate it because I like it. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA keep on it that's why for you I'm GonNa keep going honestly. Don't you watch the show. I started watching a new show called the Unicorn. It's on one of those old fashioned. Things called like network television. That sounds terrible Walter Goggin though it's the only reason. Oh Okay I knew I I love Walter Geoghegan's and it's kind of I've missed some of the first episodes I came in late. Never heard of. I've watched two episodes now. Isn't he a con man or something. No He's like no. It's like a family. A comedy his wife dies and he's like navigating the world of having daughters and dating and it wasn't bad. It's any fines to The Unicorn he's the. He's the Unicorn now I'd get the but it's really drama. Dama heavy comedy so at times it feels like if times it feels like a Sitcom but at times it like it's we'll be okay so we'll see it. I don't know that I'm GONNA keep watching. It probably won't and I've been watching the new season of Dr Who Chris. I've wanted to watch it the first two episodes and they're great. Here's the crappy part about the way the BBC does things. Is that like you can't watch any of the I can't watch window or in. I don't know any of the previous episodes. I don't have cable or satellite or anything anymore and so if I want to try to I know you do and I can't record it. That's the thing that the only way you could basically get if you set your Dvr Dvr to record that show because you never know when it's coming out what about the the BBC. So Yeah I could pay for another APP could do that I. I don't have to pay for them because if you have a direct TV subscription right exactly you. So is his for me. Personally I would have to buy the APP somebody else's logging. BBC's listening Yeah Brothers always always look great and it's my first experience with the new doctor. I didn't see the last season at all. So you're not you didn't go back and watch the conduct. I haven't didn't care. It was really fun. It was really good really good cool honestly I enjoyed it made me feel reminiscent of Matt. Smith doctor who completely different creators on this show. So that's so just real quick. We've really never talked about Dr who we haven't havoc on having hot cast but dr who probably has a bigger part of like my emotion and heart than almost most any show that we've ever talked about and it was also like integral into the beginning of our fridge. Absolutely was it was the start of it. Yeah it was it because of a little time and we had a little drunken argument where I said. Hey we both love star wars and I said something along the lines up. You gotTA check out Dr who I think I might like it as much as star Star Wars and I was like no way. It's not possible. I remember saying that multiple times it is not possible. Then you're just was talking because you're drunk and then I started watching and you said you're like the first season is the ninth doctor. Your husband and five. You've got to get through that season once you're done with that you know. Production gets better and the story gets better. You'll like it boy. Did David tendency my heart. He stole my heart. And then I was like. You can't change the doctor like so the catch with docked doctor who is that they will change into other like physically looking people. It's the same doctor. It's the same time Lord but their physical appearances different And I did not want him to go so bad like I was like you. Just WanNa go. This is where it was David tennant. But I'm not ready right. Yeah or something along those lines but yeah. It was very emotional. Season Finale Alley. It was re I and I thought it was really became a little bit of a Goofy Matt Smith Dr Who and then it was like but Bam Karen Gillan. Yup I hear right then. Amy Pond came into the picture and I was like I'm in a man. And Rory Rory was great man when he you become the Roman soldier and lives like a thousand years to be back earth that was on believable and then we both come and dropped off with Cataldi. Paul d where I dropped because where I completely dropped off. He's not good you injury. He's good but angry. I need to go go back. I never watched his second season. There's a couple of good episodes with Several good episodes in there. There's a couple of episodes with the. Is Stark Oh yeah remember what her character was. It was like the girl who died and the girl who lived. Yeah that's the name of those two episodes. Those were really good you. You don't who Cappelli reminded me when he was the doctor House House was the doctor and I was just right now and stick to medicine. I Love House not done yet. Did they have. The new. New Female doctor came out and I thought all right. That's interesting but I wasn't caught up on the season so I'm like well I can't watch this because I gotta watch the last year and that's the way I watch it and then finally this season started or I don't know if it's a mid break season I don't know what it is but no. This is a brand new season. I'm like you know what I'm starting over fucking so what I know the great one I was like looking into the episodes facades. They've got their only shooting or putting out like eight episodes an eight to ten episodes of Dr who rather than going along with them. Okay they've shortened seasons quite a bit. I think they did that with capacity to the The very last season but the first two he was on were like fifteen eighteen. Okay episode fifteen or sixteen episodes but then the last one he did was like nine and then the first season of the new female doctor was eight. And I'm assuming this one's it's going to be short like that as well. Apparently she's very good for ratings. Yeah that's what I that's what hurt. She's in very good. Let's she's good i. I don't know that she is yet like I'm enjoying her. The doctor As much but the story the lines have been very good. Her is the doctor is different. He doesn't seem as timing really. Can I don't WanNa see capable with that. A female slight. No I feel like you know like the last couple of doctors. They couldn't be in a situation that they couldn't figure out immediately. Really that's true and her. I don't know but I've only seen two percent so we'll see and that's really it. That's all I've been watching. I haven't been watching that much. I've been watching one other thing. I remember what is it. The final season Vikings. Ooh Time it's a good show. I saw the very first season is in of it on history channel back in the day and I hadn't followed up after Um they're all on prime minus the final season which transferred over to as an Amazon thing. Do they own history. It's still on history channel. Just the seasons one through five all free on Brian Okay. How many seasons other six th that are in the six hundred okay? Maybe I'll watch that. I've heard good things. That's a pagoda. It's a huge fan of Vikings. Yeah so all right so we're going to go and we should have talked about this earlier. We never did. You haven't faced any our our main topic of the night an hour and twelve minutes. It is we're going to do our top. Ten game shows vision. Game shows post game. Show our twelve hundred excited no stopping. I'm excited about it because we'll have to cruise through. I love game shows. I did I did too and We asked Alex was going to be on. And we had no idea where we're going to do and it's the first thing you jump to. So why because I've had them done for months because What are the game show fanatic? No I think I've throughout the idea at one point and then you guys said episode. That was the first thing you jump jumped to game shows if we want to be and I guarantee you what we said was it would be a great topic for Davidson up again and then we actually were going to do it. They even yeah and he chickened out. We've been calling him calling him calling him ignores US sends us to other messages. I don't know I feel like three months ago. We talked about it. And we're going to do it so I was doing drinking with how they're at the bar through list down Nice. Well I'm ready for it because I love game shows and game shows have been a huge part of my life. I've everybody's lives every bit as a kid. Especially you're really gonNA game shows but then a little thing happened and like when I was in high school we got Prime Star satellite television. Okay the pre game show network. Yeah the precursor to direct TV and the game game show network and I feel like that was a game changer no pun intended. It was because I was opened up to a whole new world of like seventies and sixties game shows that you know I never had seen before but we're just absolutely amazing I just watched them all and a whole bunch of new. A lot of them were shitty but like a new game shows. That weren't very good but you have always been a huge fan of game shows now. We should talk about so we decided on our wheel rules. Rules here yeah. We've got some rules so we obviously have regular game shows where you're trying to answer questions and win a prize. But then there's also elimination game shows right to where you are battling against their challenging another against another Persian to either eliminate them. I am or not be eliminated yourself on the show towards a goal of winning a prize. Correct we are going to include those news in this Soltau reality. Elimination shows are included. What we have decided to exclude our talent competitions American idol x factor Hell's kitchen things like that anything that you're you're still competing but your The competition requires a specific doc. Talent in order to do that and it's not playing a game talent oriented. What about face off on Scifi? I don't know what that's where they do. I do Hollywood makeup. I Know Nicholas Cage movie. Yeah Nicholas Creative in an Giang. It's called what about Rupaul drag race. Uh No it's a like America's not next forces themselves with drag Queens. Oh I thought it would be Rupaul. All drag racing John Force ultimate head to head battle heavy. I shook his hand. That's a another one of my friends that was in the army with me. John Ericsson. He's into racing. He does drag racing and stuff You know them real well because pictures with his daughter seems like a really great. Yeah of course no but no that would not count because like okay. They're not running America's next top model. None of those count. Those are talent. Competent challenge oriented. Yes So we will start at number ten we also real quick. Have five more.

It's just a show place for funny. COMEDIANS medians celebrities yet. You be ridiculous. One hundred percent and none of it really matters other than that. And I I always loved Gilbert Godfrey on their Betty White was on their lives. So it was a big over the centers where a lot of times older. Everyone's let's go back that shows since the sixties what's The really flamboyant older gentlemen that always word like warlike. Oh Yeah Close Elton. John No remember him. He's hilarious. Yeah it was like a shiny coat and I know who you're talking talking about. He was very flamboyant had like white hair and would like throw like yes glitter. You don't be an ad.

Alright Alex you're number ten number ten is when you hear the beep. Don't forget all the fun you can have on supermarket sweep. ooh supermarkets wanted to go on. That show is a kid that was the afterschool the school school. It's recently on Amazon. I've been watching them. Yeah I've been watching the kids. They love it. I love it so good. It's is not quite what I remembered but I still enjoy. I never understood why people didn't just run down the aisles and five things I feel like I could arm down and just I know you have to have I know I know. It's gotta be five things. Does it have A. There's a limit a FI. I didn't know that but still like go to the Medicine Edison. I'll just like I don't understand it. I feel like I could feel arlene up the other day because we were trying to figure out whether or not the show was filmed in a studio studio or in an actual grocery store. Now it's in a studio. They built old grocery store. One Hundred Guy's grocery games. Okay because we looked it up but I can't remember what we found out now. It's built studio that brought the products into well anyway. Yeah I love that all those Hams. That is really number. Ten is also going to be kind of a little bit of a throwback to my childhood and it is a game called double dare W Ooh. I used to watch that after school all the time it was a nickelodeon show And but when it came onto the game show network for Awhile to see. I never really watched that show because when it was on we didn't have cable so I would only see it in hotels. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah and I did love hotels. It was so fun it was family oriented and there was like families that would compete against each other or just kids competing against each other. There was always some sort of liquid dropped on people. Oh yeah was that the one where they climbed through the nose yes you. That's what I was just going to climb through the big mills and there'd be boogers all in it. It was like the perfect it kid game show watch and I watched it a lot. I'm always a big nostalgia guy and that is why it's number ten. Yeah great show. So we're on number. My number nine is I don't know if you guys will have it on your list okay. It was a little game. Show on comedy decentral Call Win Ben. Stein's money loved it. I hope that it's like a it's like a jeopardy but but a little bit better. Yeah but you have to go up against definitely a comedy. Oh Yeah for sure and a little unknown name Jimmy Kimmel Joseph. What's that after? Probably after the man show yeah it was during during a really win Ben. Stein's money was on like in nine late nineties early. Two thousand thousand eighty seven. Yeah something like that so it could have been right around the end of it. I guess yeah but I always love that show. I Love Ben. Stein I thought is dry. I sense of humor. Great Yeah and it cracked me up. Every time I watched it apparently at one six daytime emmy awards really. Yeah and out coach Jimmy Kimmel one outstanding game show host award in nineteen ninety nine. No kidding so that was my number nine. When Ben Stein's Monterey Hey rip Taylor? Who did he know? Ben Stein's was a speech writer for Nixon. Now I think it was Reagan. Johnson was a Republican. I think it was Reagan or Bush. I knew I did know that might have been Bush senior. I knew he was in the White House for a while as a staffer. Your number nine Alex. Fear factor fear factor. I forgot about that cockroach feed off. That building was not outta factor. Joe Rogan. Yeah screaming his head off. I never watched a lot of fear factor. I'M NOT GONNA lie. He used to. I did had a lot. I do remember though. I remember one where they drank. Donkey your yet. Yeah and you show. Oh so joe. Rogan talks about this on this podcast. He said maybe I didn't see you just heard on the podcast. Could've been but he talked about it. He said you know what ended that show show. He's an went to crazy like the it. This was like the remake when they were coming back Nixon by the way Ben Stein. That's what I did really think that makes them anyway. Anyway he He said they did that. Stunt were they drank this Donkey Semen and he said after that he he realized like we can't do this. I can't like this. That went through so many levels of management and people like you says that any said that hidden. I'm in production meetings and whatnot. Everything was just getting so ridiculous like you had to one up the next one the next one the next one and then that one comes up and you're like well first off. Why are we doing this and second off like what are you GonNa do? That's worse than this from this moment on and Joe was like I. I don't WanNa part a bit. So he stepped out and then the show kind of failed after that but yeah rightfully so I honestly I'll watch tarantulas and BS. He's on your face. I don't WanNa see that any. Yes sorry I cannot hide you know so you liked act that show. Yeah but the ninth best about nine eight above it might number line is a show. That's relatively new new And I don't even think it's on anymore I don't they tried to make a comeback but it's called the deal or no deal deal or no deal. I liked that show a lot. Because there's a lot of the suspense there when it comes area much so yeah opening that was like a huge huge hit like millions and millions and billions unions of your. Yeah I I so when it first came out though I was like. I don't need to watch that. I wasn't really big into the the game show trend at that point. And then I sat down star watching the show and I was like caught like drawn in you know and I wanted to see more liked it. I liked the style of the game. I like what she had to do. Is I always loved about that. Game like Howie Mandel to would. I always loved game is Real yeah it was Howie Mandel. Oh no I was thinking Wayne Brady to now. No he did he might have come back to make a deal There that's right. That's why they can dealer near deals was the Seattle. Yeah I mean I get it now. If you go to any arcade at the water park in Wisconsin dells in the mall. Have a dealer no deal all game And your kids will put all their money into that. Sure sure to ticket and they'll get no ticket every time it's the worst good game there is really anyway. What I loved about? The game was like the eighteen million different ways that you can think about in quantify like how the game works. You could run mathematical equations in your head to try and figure out like what should I pick here which I do. That's not necessarily the right. Wait isn't you know I'm just saying like there's just a lot of aspects to it. Yeah I thought that was cool and then there's also the mystery of what the Banker Guy's GonNa do. Oh and you completely have to guess at the cases started off so go to Vegas. There's a lot of deal or no deal. They're really six game slot machine type. I'm sure and like that's how you know you've had a successful game show when there's absolutely Louis Number eight yes. Mine isn't a similar vein to that kind of the first one that blew up the all new world of game show. I know what it is. Who wants to be? Yeah I am Regis Philbin. Ni- that shows WEAP- The nation. Ah Did and I watched it and loved it and they were super suspenseful and I always. We would all questions right and I could've sworn that that would be great at the game. Yes until the one that they always lose on is like the one you always lose absolutely and we all as a family would sit down and watch that show when it came on at night. It was a prime time show was like the biggest thing time Iran Hugh White Awhile and I remember watching the first guy that won a million dollars and everybody was like freaking out about it. 'cause a guy finally won a million dollars and then a few few more obviously one after that but I remember seeing the first one and it was a big deal and it was like a family event loved it. I loved that show. I think there's also a lot of vegas lots of you betcha. I'll I'm sure midday show for a while with Meredith Vieira abner after regis. Yeah my My Dad used to get mad at me. You watched it. 'cause I'd answer the question. That's not the answer and then I'd be how. How do we just covered in class like two days ago? You're in fifth grade okay. But it was like seven plus four. Why do you why do you think they made the TV shows a fifth grader? And it's really odd that The other day some old guy told me a joke was laying in bed with the wife the other night. We were watching. Who wants to be a millionaire? You WANNA have sex. She said no I said. Is that your final answer. She said yes and I said I think we got a phone a friend I saw. I ah saw that. That's not that funny number eight. Alex likes the password is spur. Talk Password Hazard. That's a classic. Just that's why it's on my list. It's it was an iconic connick show I can remember game show network tune in Yep I watched it all the time I love Password and they redid it recently right. There's a new version of Passover. Now I'm more of the vintage gameshow upset because the those vintage hosts could get away with all kinds of everything. The One guy who I'm sure at some point we'll talk about. I was in the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie. Oh Richard Dawson. Yeah the running man. Yeah that one Richard Dawson. He should be able able to just kiss every woman that was on his show. Other like Standard Wink. Martindale was like every game show. I don't remember it was a bunch of Richard Dawson's the one I remember from. Oh Yeah Richard Dawson would've like five. Yeah what who was the guy. We'll get password either but yeah. I Love Password. Wink Martindale was he did like tons and tons. I think he'd be. I'd like jokers wild and all these different games anyway Jerry. You're number. Eight number eight is survivor ever survivor. This is this is there was a little bit of question. There was a little bit of a game. Show is a reality show. So Rama in here is my argument. Human is that the overall show is a game. You're playing in entire game for a while to win it so it is is an elimination game. Show it's definitely a limiting we started. We decided to add. Elimination game. Shows and survivors might number eight. Because it's a and on top in every episode. There's an elimination challenge. That's based around a game. A game of some kind of main game to see who the winner is which would then Deichmann community. Yes but it could also propel your chances forward in winning the overall game and there's a lot of strategy to survivor. Yeah there is. It's actually a strategy game mm-hmm really for sure that's one hundred percent is and it's so fun to watch. I like watching that. It was a original reality. TV show game. I've really only ever seen one season. Really the one with the older naked gay to the first season The Guy He'll yeah Richard Richard yet. He that's the only season I've ever come back so many times. Yeah he's back up and there's one coming up in a couple of weeks they're starting A. It's like a a winner champions silence survivor thing where they're bringing them all to one island. Pick it up. It's you should watch it. Twenty years going. Oh man for so long crazy and I love it I really really do. I don't know why I don't get to watch it that often because I have lost all of my satellite now just ran away from me. I'm I can't afford it beloved Three it was kind of in the vein. It's not really but I always think I watched it all the time too though for the same reasons but yeah survivor. My number eight love it might number seven is the game. That's made up in the points. Don't matter whose line is it anyway. See I thought of that show. It's definitely game now. Nobody's winning anything points. Don't matter but it's still a game. Show is Improv. Perhaps comedy it's not a game going again. It's structured as a game show it's structuring. It is a game show gives. This is a winner at the end. It's structured as like an Improv class. An IMPROV game show. But there's clearly a game show or winning there is a game. The whole thing's the game I ever drew. Carey wants to pick that up and there's a winner at the end but see that games teams are made other than the points don't match Carey. Show was the only time that that saying ever became a thing. That's but he wasn't the original host. It was originally a British show that I never said it's the game show. Point points are made up in the right or the whatever the Games are made up in the points right right same thing with the brought it back for a little while yes they did with Wayne Brady the host. No it was I see Wayne Brady live at the reality. Juliet when I was in school really was amazing isn't it I Asia Tyler. Yes he should names. But you're really get it. No I think it counts and it's my number seven but greeted US green light show one hundred percent love that that was another show that would the town and watch at night. My Dad would like fall out. Yeah Brady Wayne. Brady was the best at the end because he'd always do those songs and everybody was like waiting at home like to see what song he was going to believe. Elif very good. Nothing has been funny in a long time. I don't know if anything has ask now. It has to be honest. Your number seven Alex jeopardy jeopardy. Wow that's how long that is a stunner. I like other shows better. I mean it's fine just back my window you know what is jeopardy quiz show ultimate quiz. It is it is the ultimate quiz show did you have you been watching the greatest based champion series primetime. Why have sort of that? We had a whole text back. We were live tweeting texting each other and connection this right. Now that's exactly what we were saying Davidson. It was intense. It was intense and Ken Jennings has always been my favorite loved contestants. Amazing think of jeopardy forever. That's the guy that like. Beat the computer and Austin Watson. IBM's Watson but it is a computer. Give him a break. He won the tournament of champions. He did he is the greatest champion of all time and an extra back. Who is we don't know this might be his last season so he's having massive medical issues? Isn't it got terminal Pancreatic Cancer Answer. Yeah it's like stage for is not not not good for him but Yeah it'll probably be his last season but anyway I've loved jeopardy entire life. I still watch it and let's Alex can talk about this show. I need to talk about them. I'm good we just gave all your answers for pretty much podcast. I'm just here. It's your puzzle that I did. I had nothing else going on so so my number. Seven seven is win. Ben Stein's money. Oh Nice I honestly wrote this down and I wanted to say in the last when you brought ended up. But I didn't WanNa say that I had it on my list is that I thought right off the bat like nobody's GonNa have this on their list. I loved the show. I really thought nobody would have have it on their list but I did. I absolutely loved it Ben. Stein was hilarious. How dry he was They did it was still a game show on the fact that they were always strange French. They were answering questions for certain amount of money up like jeopardy If they didn't answer I remember if they didn't answer in the form of a question and they did it three three times they'd have to wear a dunce cap And then they were like made fun of for a while. It was hilarious Ben Stein is apparently only a very smart individual. Oh Yeah it's a good show love your seven my number six. It is American gladiators that is a game show to game show. Aw Sure Yeah I love that. I loved it. Everybody in the world. Their favorite part was the tennis ball. Yeah Oh yeah yeah for sure that course I thought this was before we had this And you weren't in this because you don't have an iphone so I could not text you because I had no service service so I was texting message. Okay Jerry. I was trying to determine what was and wasn't a game show so I kept giving him examples and at one point. Jerry gots annoyed enough by me at me. He basically said he's like I'm not going to answer the question awesome. This is how he sounded in my head. I'm not going to answer every single game show in the world. I got better things to do. I didn't say better things to do but I did say I'm not going and like I sit here. I'm not going to sit here and answer every game show for you. You sound game just like also this is what ause giving a breathing treatment. I I mean it was a very hostile tex-mex I would've been. I probably would have been censored you did. Say I don't think we I. I said I don't think we need to sit here at answer. Figure out every game show that's ever existed. But I was trying to figure out a specific game show without telling you the game show which was American gladiators yes American Ninja Warriors. You did and that's when I ignored it was like all right. I don't care about that show I said I have one in the same realm of that that I think is better than would beat all of them which was my survivor. Okay I don't. I think you just need to quit putting rules rules on your list clearly. According to our thing that game it's it's a show and it's also limitations elimination so accounts and I love the American gladiators. I watched it nonstop and I wish it was on every single day. I wish it was on now. This is blaze. American Ninja Warrior is not as good as I know. It's not even close laser just saying this blaze this laser and this blazer dodgeball. I know but it's making fun of gladiators American gladiators because that's what their names were. All the six the six original American gladiators were Malibu lace lace race. I just I just closed the thing on accent thunder storm Gemini. Lightning man ZAP nitro. tro- he was. I remember remember. Saudi three-month rewind sunny. What about like forearm lab? They brought it back in the two thousand with kids they did. Yeah but anyway American gladiators Levin show. That's my number six and LX Nighthawk press your luck. Oh Oh no women no women and rebuilt of whammy originally press your luck and if you guys ever seen the documentary of the guy who who beat press your luck they talk about it on the gold birds do they ask. They do something Frank Right. I think I don't tally. Halley Endo no no not him. Here's he literally. That was the strategy my watch on co-ord- episodes rose by well. He memorized the patterns of where the squares would move and he knew how quickey had react to get it to move whoa to go to the spot that would pay him the most money or the prize that he wanted and he just kept doing it. He memorized the patterns all spots for it and he just hundreds of thousands of dollars so it just came back this year again they browse the nineteenth eighteen. It was revived. That's fine I'll take. It was it Paul Michael Larsen. I don't know maybe it's hosting now by Elizabeth is with banks really bank so she's like a huge everything like a heart term It is made by Bob Barker studios reviews and yet the original host was I actually thought week Martindale host. I think I'm wrong no I. I wasn't even told about Tom. Larkin Yeah I love. Press Your Luck Peter to the market. But I was saying Paul Michael Larsen was the guy who you beat my game. He won one hundred and ten thousand two hundred thirty seven dollars equivalent to two hundred seventy one thousand dollars in two thousand nineteen. It's the largest one day total of her one on that game show. That's crazy now. I love press your luck totally in the bag. I agree with you all all right Jerry. Mine number six is it. I have six as Hollywood squares. Nice I loved that show so much laughed at it a lot. I liked the setup of it and it was. It is a comedy show There was a winner. People did win and I I.

EP92: He's Just Not That Into You & Sex and The City!

"The. Guys today we are joined by dating expert, famous evil people for dating. It is a Mira tola God that last name, right? And Greg. Yeah. Canetti I would hope you could be able to pronounce right and currently hose the maybe it's Yukata cast, which Jaren ironic, because it was a fabulous experience. Jared left being like, I felt like we went to couples therapy. I feel rushed podcast I've ever listened to or done so weird because it's about sports scores cash. So that's really. He was recuperated and then you guys have also authored three books together four now. Well, the the first book name, Liz idea. Names on. I didn't wanna do it in a marriage being to doing. He's just not that into the famous. He's just not that into you. So you guys did take partial. Absolutely bring it because it's broken. It's a break up because it's broken. Okay. It's just a beep day just day. Just effing day. Keep your marriage from sucking amazing. Four though Mira? I haven't. I don't get it. I see you have a LaCroix or la- crying your hand. Sparkling water can join of passion, fruit flavor. I don't get people that drink this, and I feel like everyone that's drinking it is just saying that they like it, but they actually don't like it because I think it tastes like moose saliva. Right? Just that flavor or just look all. LaCroix's tastes like very, will not be our sponsor. It is a scam. Is it. Is it what moose Levin taste like, right. Go to the same clubs. Do. I love the passion for the lemon and the helium upon, I think they're delicious. So Donald talked me out of drinking them a couple of weeks. Why she just gives you should drink regular water. Is there really. Better. Right? Are getting Heiser whatever saying it LaCroix tastes so good. You don't think that. I think it tastes really good in there must be some cancerous chemical in there all done. I went back to try the other night. I did taste a little bit like this coins thinking, oh yes, nNcholas. Alcohol drink. That's the can. Oh, that's not good either. Right. I think it tastes a little bit like it's spiked. So I feel like I'm getting like a seltzer in involved co whose fingers this. Sturdy. Yeah. But I do I will have them from time to time, but I, I've gone back to water right well for that. But one thing I do is the fact that you co row, he's just not that into you, which is arguably movie that is changed all of our live movie in a book that is referenced everyday really almost every day of our lives. Do I say something that pertains to what you guys talked about in the in the film or the book? I like, how do I tell Jared and people about Jared and my relationship and saying that we are the exception to the rule always saying that. And then how many times do we tell girlfriends that he's just not that into you all the time. Simple answer. So can you please divulge in the birth of that book and where it came from, why you wrote it? How it kind of got started? I mean, it's a movie. I was well. Okay. So. I was working as a consultant on sex and the city. Yeah, holder thing. Yeah. And. I think it's the last season and I was I was on a lunch break, and one of the girls was right, or there said, I'm seeing guy and he won't have sex with me doing that's bad. And I stared at her for fifteen minutes. And then eventually I said, yes, I think that's bad. And then she goes because she divided about the night before and then she goes, we had to work, Greg. I'm like, are you mad at me now? I don't. Taking a tone how little someone have to like someone else don't have sex with must've been real growth? No, nothing. No. Choose one of the guys have been wanted have sex with me sometimes. Then they hate you. Also not the case. Well, here's the thing so like no shoes, actually the opposite and also a writer in Hollywood and like a person I had to work really hard to be where they were like there weren't that many female writers on sitcoms at that time, and this was the staff of mostly entirely women to game in and me. And so she was kind of exceptional. So I was like, why she letting this area for life sort of slack and why is she being dumb here and smart everywhere else? But I think sometimes people just want what they want or they think they don't deserve better. They don't think they're gonna meet anyone better and they try and make like you say. On this. Try to make. What do you say chicken? What is it. And. So I said. We started talking about eventually I said, he's just not that India and I don't remember even saying and Liz to Chiloe who's the co author of the book said, oh my God. Remm too. Join the conversation, and then we went back to work because we out in the hallway, went back to work, and that's always talked about. Girls were literally like just asking me questions the whole time. So if he I mean, literally, like if guys married to somebody else, then he can't. He's a choice. The. Probably said this for so many years, but it's still the most relevant thing ever and it will be the most relevant thing ever saying straight. I'm like that it's a very simple answer. Yeah, that's the kind of union element of it like, you're not wrong. He's kind of into you like you're not imagining this whole thing, but if he only wants to he's drawn or one whose family it just is that thing like he's into, she's not when you outlined it. You're like, why do you want these reduced versions of what you probably hoped your relationship would be like? Like a guy that only comes over at four o'clock in the morning, doesn't wanna call it by name or has a lot going on at work or as lives heavy right now. Just like, oh my God, yawn because I said, all those things to people when I was like, well, it's funny. You say that Greg that she had like all this stuff going on. You didn't understand why she liked someone when she was like putting all her effort and energy into every other part of her life and was smart and other parts of her life, but not that part of her life. But by. But my dad always said something that made so much sense to me which was reason has nothing to do with matters of the heart, which is twenty liking someone. It's like all your cue goes out the window and he started thinking like here instead of here, there were also women that hated the notion of the book. And there were like, I know when someone doesn't like me what I'm saying. You know, I'm not trying to trying to start. We're not trying to start a cult here. I'm just saying, this is what it looks like when anything's failing you. If you're if you work at a place for a long time and they passed over for promotion, it's not happening this place like get get real with what's happening in your life and look at the facts as opposed to ruminating on these. Well, maybe you know, it's gotta be a better time or whatever. Let's take it a step further beyond high got up with the concept of the book and more about how you've got to be script consultant on sex city. Like what made you qualified to talk about that female dialogue. This. Okay. So I stand up. Senate for thirty years. Michael Patrick king who is the executive was also stand up and we knew each other from doing this place called Argo which used to be over in West Hollywood, sort of like where all the mister show people came from Jimmy Garoppolo like it was sort of the beginning of the alternative comedy thing in the nineties. And he just liked me. He said, you were the guy I was trying to be when I was pretending I was straight. Slightly of all, you know. Like lamps furniture and. And I wasn't afraid to wear nail polish at the time. And so he liked me and then there's what he says, and this is for sure not PG. Hey, said I ran into many. I'd love for you to come over to sex in the city. Because the staff, seven women into gay men and nobody here knows what pushed you taste like. I, I was trying to hear that. I was stunned. I was like, what? The? Yeah, yeah. And. Yeah. So he. So then I went over there and that's exactly what on the very first day. That's what they wanted to talk about. Great. Do you know like the segments that we do on this podcast that relates the sexist city? Ashley? Did you talk a little bit about how Jared has always mad that I didn't call him big, but home from doing help us a dating day. He was like this guy, Greg told me first hand, like as a writer of Mr. big that I shouldn't be mister big to you and I was like, see, and you've built so much better after that conversation, nobody wants to be big, big as immature and unattainable and not available. Not improbably doesn't have great relationships and buys a place of Napa, whatever the hell he did. So. He makes really dumb choices hired. You take a Napa. You don't move to net. Okay.

I've told you guys this before on the podcast, but I think one of my biggest issues in life and a New Year's resolution every year that I really truly try and get better at is to drink more water, but I'm just not good at it like Ashley and Lauren are really not. I think part of it is because I blow it a lot and sometimes I have jobs where I have to be there in the moment. I don't have the liberty to run out to the bathroom every five minutes, and because of my fibrous, I do have like inherently wanna pee all the time. So those are reasons that I deprived myself of water which yes I know are terribly bad, but I have to tell you about this product that has genuinely changed my life.

We've had segments were girls call in and they tell us who their big is in their life. And it's actually been a huge part of like our podcast since we have you, you're such a coveted both of you guys. Can you kind of go into that character and like what was the idea behind big at first and how did it turn out and should carry have ended up with big. I mean, he's really funny, so I worked on the show, but I hadn't even watched the first season that wasn't on and married did. And so when we were on the time we we met so I got into it because of her, you know, and I think we've been using it. We fought about at the beginning. I thought big was cool were like, no, no, no, no, no. I was like, no, he's kind of a bad ass. You know. Crazily he'll I also was like, he's jerking around so hard. He's just sort of update version of Jon Hamm from madman like he's just an unattainable guy who's never going to find happiness because he, he thinks he also believes he's cool. That's part of what his charm bad ass. I love when calls Kerry kid like you're so cool. The hottest part of him. It really is. Yeah, that's a little bit of a daddy thing. So. No, but I think that is part of it too. I mean, you have to look at what those types are like eight. And on the other hand, if you break him as a character, he sounds great and he's John Corbett and he's good looking. But he was really just like a man boy that wanted help through the relationship and just sort of and also was wanted to to make done already. He wanted to go right to like just nuzzling and vacation like didn't want it. He wasn't super exciting in that way, but he was a good person. Who was the best husband. Do you think on sexiness city by definition? Was it Steve, or was it Harry Carey. Harry, harry's. Harry character. And then she ended up with the ball ball ball voyeur. Yeah, not Troy. Stephen, we always love Seve to save a weenie never addressed is the Maranan Steve named their baby really in his last name is Brady, I know rainy Brady because I think they wanted the ever. I think we're going to keep Hobbs for the kids last name. So it's gonna be Brady Hobbes. Then they got married. I know that doesn't make any ratings 'bout asked to. Ginger, either didn't need help relationship then didn't Steve really need help because he was like sleeping Moran, his couch and like it's, that's right. I think I like the actor a lot. Actually, I actually love Ron Livingston, but I thought he was the worst. I mean, he was the least exciting of all of the county. Forget all the people that were in there. Like we watch madman the other day new member. Sterling from swirling Hooper he was. Sterling, he is. He's a definition of a silver FOX. On fire, like member fire episodes the he wanted, didn't he wants someone? Oh, yeah, yeah. Bradley Cooper chicken wings. Yeah. Car? No, single and fabulous. Early on the table is nothing else fucking do in my life. Okay. So you're a fan of the show before you even got signed onto the show. Greg, like mayor was a fan of the show, and then you've got sign on for the second season. Two. Jessica and I were watching it together, wasn't it before that and I, it wasn't maybe. Yeah, you have two daughters. How do we tell our listeners. Oh. Children together six thirteen dies prime boy age. Do you help them or they don't care. You can tell you our, our children are very well read and well groomed through television films to the very high standards that nobody high school can possibly meet. I senior year old true is looking for like matters in Reagan's for light who was like. Actor Paul Bryers chain to be six open to their abilities and super romantic, but also broke it. Okay. Let's. We're looking for for all of our years, which is why I was twenty. I was twenty nine. When idea single find myself for the first time single Dan's. I have to say that Jared was, is these ultimate romantic comedy romance. Karoke Jared has no toxic masculine, but none of this school right. They're not there. I mean the all of the propositions that our kids get are literally send me news or do you want to. They tell you when they ask for nudes comparable with you. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, most of it, it's a, there's a, there's a way to sort of play. So obviously we're all girls in the house, so I sorta stand one rung out. I don't ask don't, and I also don't embarrassed. I don't say anything. I don't. I don't have any of that, like I tried to not to be negative about any of it, but I'm also like available. If you wanna talk about it, you may not ever wanna talk about it and you want and maybe on the first thing you don't talk about, but but I'm interested, but I'll wait till they bring it to me because otherwise it's weird though you you've called wrote. He's just not that into what are you be like the like, go to, they haven't. You'd be like the one person everyone's lining up to ask questions, but when it's your parents, it's sorta like it doesn't matter what you did there. I don't know. Sort of similar to the information that they like. You know, here's our relationship expert though. That's not gonna cut it like they're kind of Fassi when it comes to sort of the the low bar that guy of set themselves. You guys, what makes you relationship experts? I know that is like sounds like how they're Sheeham question authority. Really? No. Question dating. We questioned it all the time because I think what it is, you know, experts the word that they use because you're your guest on something and. And. Bachelor expert on access. That's right. That's right book at the beginning even in in the first book where like we don't do this for living TV writers. The answers on the covers takes. It's. Psychiatrist, not there. Smart ass friends you the real, but we think you're great. I think you're great. We don't have all those weird bad stories about yourself that you have right. And we're also not burdened by literature pertaining to psychoanalysis or any of that stuff. We can just say, hey, look, this is the way I feel about it. Here's my experiences, a man, and I've had both experiences. I've also been dumped and been called somebody too many times and stock a little bit, and. Sober, but the so I know it's like to be dumped as well to know when you like someone who clearly doesn't like you. And then I've also done all of the things in the book. You know, ghosted somebody or blown them off or whatever. And so I had experience and I had a sister who literally waited outside prisons to meet men like she picked the worst people. I couldn't do. You wouldn't even wasn't even a thought in your mind that this might be a good person. You're always like, what the fuck. What was wrong with that? I think is yeah, daddy issues. My mom is hard on her and yeah, that was a lot actually goes after prince charming and go after criminals, but we are raised the exact same parents are both fin tab. Fantabulous parents whose art dad's hood in higher reactions in her reaction her react Oehler. See, I think she never had a boyfriend. So I was like, well, I'm just going to get any boyfriend. So I'm like that maybe we envy reacting to what she is like the the behaviors that she is that or like through the blueprint, you're not for me yet of it's very interesting to see her in Jared, actually together. I want someone more like cheer maybe onto some. Yeah. I always do what I was doing. Nobody believed me, wow, actually, saddened, desperate desperate. Actually, like you knew what she wanted us you're looking for in, you believed I did. I believed so hard. I did all the inspirational quotes when it came to believing. I think I even I almost had believe on the back of my license plate just like I was like, it's gonna happen. I know it's no people think that I'm just to daydream me and I think that took looks real life, but it's going to happen. And then it really happened festive chick flick way ever. Yes, totally Minnesota. But you did you see the exception to the rule in the book, but you did like we would say to somebody look. This person may come back into your life, but what you have now is opportunity to cut it off and you decide what's going on. You take control of the situation. If you break up with somebody you, that's it. You've made the move, then you get to set parameters, get away from me. Don't bother me. Don't call me. Baker, right? If you're gonna come back to me, come back every single day for year and do this, and maybe we can have a chat about it later. Right? You own that space and most people when they break up there, but we can be friends and we hang out and it's like, no, no, no, no, no, you can't. No, that wasn't the relationship you were in. You know, it's like when losing my best friend, that's your best friend wouldn't break up with you. Your best friend is a different kind of friend. This is a, this is a boyfriend. Well, yes, so weird because our parents always say, my mom has been weird. My dad's says, your mom was my best friend, but my dad, my mom always said, I don't get calling your dad my best friend. He's not my best friend. She looks at in a completely different way, right? Right. Public has she belongs to still have sex with them and she wanted to add. He is probably like most older men like he doesn't have any other relief friends. And also there probably isn't somebody else that he tells everything to besides her. She may be has ten friends that she talks about stuff, but but he probably is only shared those intimacies with her. So. He sees it like that. First of all, Greg, I I in the HAMAs so go and take have a little by HAMAs spicy. Okay. Not really good to eat on air. I feel. Just really quick because I just want to wrap up the sexist thing before he completely divulge into. He's just that Intego. I'd love both of you guys to offer our listeners advice on like what they should do if they are in a situation with someone like big or someone that's just not giving them what they deserve, but so is it safe to say that you carry shouldn't have ended up with big, and do you have any stories from set that you can link spilled Tian. Both of you. No, they shouldn't have been up together. I mean, that's my my belief is that you don't. She doesn't. We don't know. She ends up with because, but she she's the one that you know would decide he's throwing person, and then we just don't have to pick somebody that doesn't have to be type because I think that's tough. The other thing is. And I didn't. I didn't. I had no say in the movies were completely different bouts tomato movie to make a movie because everybody liked it. Everybody wanted to be the way it was. The big thing I always talk about is in the original idea for the final season, it wasn't supposed to be and cough. It was meant to be Liam Nason and they, they, they. Courted him and they quoted him and they took him to lunches and stuff, and he and this way before taking these like, no, I still have a film career. We're all like human film career. Like you just made Michael Collins like nobody like it just didn't. It also, nobody knew television was going to be what it became, but he did end up how he was right about himself. He, he bet on himself and he became a big film star. But so you magin him now. And at the end, he was supposed to hit her for real. And then hid her for. Hurting it wasn't. It wasn't in the, but in in this they kind of budget with the keystone. Cops thing with that fight in the running around that was dumb because Burston cop is tiny man and not. I think. Originally cough and and big fighting. That's too big dudes having it out, and that would have been kind of romantic and kind of cool. Athlete until they're for Alexander whatsoever. I wonder if we would have if it was lame. Yeah, me too me too. Liam Neeson would have been, but as soon as he turns on carry, everybody would have wanted. I mean, that was just the idea, right? But now the story was written, nobody would let nobody would let her get hit. And if she did get hit, she'd kick his ass and then big would just be standing there because it wouldn't. They wouldn't do it that way. Lola is the female founded company offering a line of organic cotton tampons pads liners, and all natural cleansing wipes and Lola doesn't only have sanitary products. They also have sex products to which I've been using with Jack, wait, Lauren, Ivan, Dina, ask you about this, how because obviously I have been getting none as of late. What? How are the little condoms? Bill are great. They're really, really thin and they don't have like a stinky loop. So you don't smell likely techs, really, or lube when you're done having sex and you don't feel like you're going to get any kind of infection afterwards. I feel like sometimes chemicals will give you infections, right? Like you should be wary of like what you're putting running your body, right? So the sex by Lola line is available for subscription. So you never have to worry about your period like coming and not having enough tampon to always have them ready. You'll also have condoms whenever the magic moment hop. Which is so clutch because I think those are the two things that you kind of run out and getting you forget that you've run out of like I'm always like the day, get my period literally every single time. I'm like, darn it. I gotta run a CVS and if I had a subscription based like Lola, which I now do, it's saves time, saves my ass. And Hello of the guy comes over. You're already prepped because he got, you know, very thin ones too. In addition to condoms and personal lubricant, Lola now has cleansing wipes which go hand in hand with your period. I don't know about you. Yeah. No, I definitely use them up graded from the from the toilet paper. And the reason why I'm a huge fan of Lola is not only because they deliver it right to your door, you guys, but these things are well designed like how many times have we met like a tampon we didn't like or the just like didn't fit like you have those certain brands that you like? And I promise you, you're gonna like Lola. If you give it a try because that's why I really love it. I love the design and Lisi worry free about like one I'm putting in my body because they have a disclosure of all these ingredients, and it just may. Me and my partner feel more comfortable during intimacy because I mean, whoever that partner is the day, I know I know that law team wants to make me itchy actually in these don't make me. So basically, Lauren and I are obsessed with low. We really think you guys should just give it just give it a shot for forty percent off all subscriptions. That is a massive number forty percent off.

Oh, God shot of New York, and they wrote out here. So I wrote out here with them and they went back to New York. I went back to the like once or twice how fun was carried favorite. Share Sarah's Sarah's my face era. And then I like to. I like to Sarah and I liked him Samantha. Yeah, yeah, it's really sad. They don't like each other and relied. Yeah, that's really Gracie. You know, it's like a basketball team or a band. It's like done enough already together. You spend enough time with anybody. You know one one last question on that. How was it just to go to work? And then basically you're just like the dude view. They're like, is this accurate? Like is this the way a guy would respond in your life yet? Pretty much. Nope. Tweak that. I mean, there are stories in there from our realize like the wedding ring stuff in there is from real life. Whiting ring thing. The thing we're aging gets the wrong ring. Your lease town. I wanna know your love story too. Yeah, that was gonna. We need to know how you guys met. How be relationship experts met. Okay. So starting straight with new freeze. A lot of the stories that you see through the lens of the four girls in sex today for women were different writers stories and friends from reasons if somebody was Chupak was the posted. No, right? Yes. And she, she came in and went, I can't. Morning. I got broken. Somebody left me. They broke up with me on a post. It note dad. What are you talking about? Like all of that stuff somebody goes. I am with this. He's like, we pay on me and I'm like, I don't even know where we are right now. You know that stuff that you forget where does it come from? And so, yeah, so those stories, but a lot of our actual romance is in there. Yeah, bring part of can we hear the wedding ring story. The would win, Greg. I do have rain and it was very, it was sort of it wasn't a banner proposal, wasn't he didn't say the words. Will you marry me. The our parents also didn't have the formal proposal. They're just like, we're gonna get married one day, wait, what was then? They got married. What was the proposal? Did you ever see the beginning of something about Mary where he asset girl out standing by the treating, hey, do you think we know each other from from if you if you maybe some time or maybe you don't want it doesn't matter. And then I gave her a Christmas ornament know what kind. An angel made out of clay with a holding out of heart, but it was it was it didn't have that affect it would have been great, super confused. You used us. It's not going well. No, it's not. It's angel as I turned it over. See there's a ring in it 'cause I was like, he hasn't said anything. Nice to me where we weary like sure. Sure. What's happening, you just kind of chickened out when it came to asking the actual questions? I think probably like what had happened was my my mother had been diagnosed with cancer and I so I did it before I probably would have, I probably would have done it like six months later. Right? We don't have been. It was. It was that thing where but we're in Hawaii. It was used as a break up because we've just got why you like. I'm in. Even the words and there's no, I'm gonna. Sweetest heartbreaking store Britain. Ornament my mom who was an alcohol and woman. Very peculiar, smart Stanford grad, but she she said she, there was a ring that she has that I knew about. So she when I told her I was going to ask him to marry me. She was, I'll be right back. And then she came back and had the ornament. And I was like, I don't wanna what's happening entries like fee likes, you enough this, this. This should be enough. Which would be fine if I, if I were. Or if I lived in a homeless shelter, that was the best I could do. Leeann to like a man of no means at all. And I was like, I had to cut my finger off for this, but I, I, I had I had a deal with HBO like I had some there was I wasn't wealthy by any stretch, but I also just said, never. I'd never liked anyone enough to marry them, a loved dating. I loved being single. I like my whole life. I was newly sober, but I can't even thought about the ring or how you even go about like I didn't. It just didn't. You were big part of an, here's. But here's the, here's where made a mistake in that story of giving her the ornament and her thinking how cute it is that cameras pointed at me. Suddenly, I'm the star of this thing where this is the best I can do in her world. That's what you didn't think about me at all at all. Didn't ask me like I knew nothing about what she wanted, and I didn't give it to her. That's not a good way to go about asking someone to marry you. You should find because it's their thing. If you're asking it's their day, Jarod told that you guys. I know I have to make about what she wants. I know she'll only get married in paradise and she'll want to do it this summer and all that. It's not just it's not just a piece of jewelry. It's things you can wear everyday for the rest of her life. So it has to have some consideration. She's not gonna walk around with Christmas ornament, everything. My also married. Married at this ornament mayor where you just like, he's just not that into I. I was just like mine will lease. Be how this. This is. Make. That was since then bring in the ring thing. What happened is he's. I'm told I have a family ring like my mom's mom's ring, but we haven't ever talks about like working every would you want and type threes. Ciller type Reese, design hyphen Mary once before, and I had an emerald diamonds and says about having their movement time. I don't do that. Oh, that's what I want. And I was like, I like everything except for a marquee into pair feel like at this time, like twenty years ago, my sister like old lady look gamely, Nick gestured. It's not what I like. Diamond. Siebert rings life. So then. Review where he likes accurate with my little cottage and either the redo proposal has the ring. But the thing about it was we talk about times and it ends up being Marquette, a no. No football told actually time. But also I couldn't do anything about what the ring I was given, and I have the money to that was the ring you were given and also to be fair, there's not a person that hasn't seen ING. Beautiful on that doesn't mean she should like it, but it is, you know, she's long. It's. Really not. You're not wearing it right now. She wears the Banda, but that was that was waiting that every topic anywhere yours. I was having surgery and I took it off and when I went to put it back on my ham, fat run out and get another one that fits. 'cause you're secure with the whole ring also, does that bother you? She probably didn't even notice how they set right now really awkward. Waiter. We talked about the the, you know, the difference of points the ring and what have you. And that's where the story came up for her. Finding the wrong ring rise. Being. And then Aden thing I was I vehemently was against the. I go girl puts that on her chain. I leave that day. I leave that day and they're like, now he's got an stay in it and try and live with it. I'm like, that's the worst. I am telling you there's no Jew that would be okay with that. But the man boy, they fought me and I think they were right, but the part where he comes back those, I can't believe I'm here again. That's something I said to somebody where I literally got back together with somebody with the exact same. I'm like, why am I doing this again? How did I get here again? How did I just make the same choice again with the same person, we one trying to get married, but like that's thing of like, man, I gotta make different choices. I have to start picking better people at that time. I did a lot of girls at were men's pants, a lot of punk rock chicks and I was like, gotta do better than that next time out and it did, oh. Oh, would you have an issue of? She wasn't wearing her ring and. Bothers me sometimes. Yeah. No. I mean, if you on a necklace given how much she wears it in general, I I, it sounds weird other people, so it bothers me that bothers you and you don't wear yours though, but I literally couldn't get my back on and I can't mind suitable. It's got like a crown diamond, and I don't want to. I just I've had like you're not gonna put her on your chain. Also. She never noticed. Sorry about that. I just have a friend we've feeling I know couple people and the guy never wears the ring and the Lobi young hot guys, and I would never be okay with my husband like this age going around without the rangeland keys, his age different in my age. You're pretty okay. No. No one's looking a little bit different with age. It was really hot as I had his hip replaced man Technologie like Viagra, I would think that it's like I would think people older have better sex lives, and we do it in our generation.

Before we get set of questions or quick, what are the signs since you guys co-wrote? He's not that into what are some signs that our listeners can look out for. Well, if you're already asking yourself about like veering my head going this behavior. Okay. The nation's feel coming up. Friends like, you know he has called the week, but he's really got a job that I don't. He works at the grocery store, but it's important. You know, they can't let him off floor like there's just things that you start to do or you can hear yourself you, it's a weird thing. You're lying to you most of the time when you're telling ally, you're telling it to yourself. Everyone else just watching. You try not to say something and you're going. No, no, it's fine. And they know it's not fine. What are we doing? Yeah, shut up. It's fine. Yeah, because you don't want to be paranoid and people go want to be a bitch about it and and feel like feel like what they can ask for what you want a bitch about it, your life. You know, if you really like somebody, you won't be bitchy about. It'd be like, hey, man, if you if if Collin me or being around me is not your thing. Let me know because I'm I, that's not how I want it to be a mere said at one point. Look, I super wanna be married to somebody. I wanna have kids, and that's just the life I want. That's the one I'm looking for. If it's not the when you're looking for, that's fine. But I mean, I was looking for the same thing so, but she didn't say it in a way that was threatening. She didn't. Say it in a way that was didn't feel like it was an ultimatum. She just said, this is the life that I'm looking for as I move forward, you know, and that was okay with me of fire under your about, or were you. It's been interesting because now that I have found my person, I know what real right relationship should feel like when girls would tell me about their boy problems and like a guy that they were dating their concerns about it. I used to be like so hopeful. Oh, that's going to be fine. Oh, no, he likes you. It's it's for real. That's good time, Bob, LA. And now I hear I stepped back knowing what's right, and I'll listen to other girls stories and I'll be like, oh, poor thing. Just he's just nobody. Like when we used to tell dad about it, his response was always. That's bullshit. That's bullshit because he knows how a man's actually supposed to. Yeah, also you're really when you when you take an action on your own behalf always surprised how the world actually, like if you're like, I dated girls where I was like, I'm not that into it and then they just call it off and then I'd never hear from them again. It'd be like, how did that wait? Wait, right? Noticing is like self esteem, like somebody that went, okay, I put myself out there, but I'm not gonna. I'm not waiting around and then they didn't ever call again, and then you start to and then you run into that person later and you realize like I saw them different, you know, I guess I not that I would try to make it happen again, but you realize I probably broke up with someone. I didn't know because I had a lot of ideas about who they were, but their ability to just walk away man, they didn't let me that much be they had enough self esteem to go. Okay, fair enough. And that's a really intoxicating and anything jobs anytime you just go. Yeah. Okay. I'm I'm out. I've heard so many guys say that like I've asked how many guys that are married now that are straight. I'm like, you have to let me in the male psyche like or their people that you dated that you thought you could have been with, and they're always like, absolutely. But like looking back exactly what you said they walked away and I was just not in the mind set or didn't understand what I have because I know what I wanted to ask. I don't know what that looks Backley. You know, also most guys aren't thinking about it as much of anything as you. Think women do a lot of work for men in their heads, and then you're like, I didn't know, man. I was just thinking about cheese. Generally, thinking about getting some GM's effort, we put into decoding emoji left under a picture is exhausting. All we do also that cheese Kumbo I'm Basler impaired reminded me. Shaming just made me look weird if I sent an emoji. I don't like whatever. And. And take so much versus spark with somebody in the first place. We're not like minutes, not just visually connection. This is nothing. Yeah, right. You're less likely to throw those things away when you find yourself. Always trying to be okay with getting crumbs are cookie, you know, that's when you have to, you know, just because this person doesn't seem worth does not use my value. If I'm letting it accommodating participating in it. And that's on me. This is something even when I was I wasn't desperately simple. Even when I was very, very single and Nasr and I were both very, very single. She would always have the perspective of what's wrong with me, and I'd always say what's wrong with them and always thought that my way of looking at it has always been well, correct. Well, it's goodbye. They lack the self confidence you had because no one ever picked me to like like me back. Nobody picked me either. There's something wrong with them. I don't know. I always. That sure that I do have to say, I would love to open the floor outbreak. Now I've been on a couple of trips month and I've been around some friends and people who are in relationships currently and weren't so happy in them. I felt like maybe held back by them and for the first time in my life this month, I was like, wow, I can do whatever I want go wherever I want. I don't have a dog at home out of a boyfriend at homes. Amazing. I don't have a kid with anyone. I can still pick my perfect person, and that's fucking amazing. And I am so happy to be good. I really tell a joke about how aggressive always greener. And you know, when you get married, you end up doing things like game night and playing pictionary inches. Girls all the time. Let me, you know, like you're driving home fighting for a game pictionary, but. The emails from girls that are like, I'm lonely. I'm sad. I just wish I was. I wish I had someone to spend my Sundays with, and I think. Fuck you. Have a free Sunday. Was that life. Sleep in masturbate pizza. No, they're gone. They're going. Yeah. And it's. But I do think one of the things that is difficult about relationships that are really hard. It's like you didn't pick somebody so you could restrain them right? Like you love somebody and you want them to be yours, but you you didn't the reason you like somebody's because they are they are and the more freedom you give somebody look, if somebody's going to stray, they're gonna stray. But the more freedom you give somebody the more that less likely they are because what people panic about, especially as they get older. If I'm giant, I don't get. I wanted this thing and we're not, you know, this isn't working. This isn't like, I thought it was going to be. Everybody feels that way. And I think your relationship should be the one place where you're allowed to be like it's safe. It's safe. Say we want we can talk about it guys, gonna feel differently about women? Yes, they are. They are just forget what we were. Just animals. We're still animals. And so there are things that are just biologically different, but the conversation and the freedom to be able to Stephen express that lot of times I know so many people have done the like, okay, we're going to. We're going to swing. We're going to do this differently. We have open relationship and then nobody does anything or one person doesn't. The other person. I don't need to and then they don't, but they gave themselves the opportunity to not fail somebody rules. They'll fail because it just is the way that is. Cate with your need, but also take a big risk and say, look, if you if you think you're gonna go have sex with somebody talking about it. It's what I want the boy at chill to know about it. So I don't feel weird. Discuss what that is something I can do or if I feel that way, because it goes both ways and for different reasons. And I think why not have that conversation with your best friend in quotes as opposed to becoming these two people that are trying to hold some sort of parameter that doesn't make sense for now, you know, and that's why there's all the sneaking around. And that's why there's all that, and then the phones and all that stuff. Because I think most of the time when somebody's cheating they're not, they don't wanna leave you. They just don't there. There's something happening around working just leave you. But there's something not happening in your relationship. You're not talking about and it could be a million things. And the thing is them people get ashamed or they don't talk sit down and talk about it, you know, as opposed to go, hey, whatever's going on. I don't care just this is not the way this should happen. So let's talk. What is it? Where is it that this is going? And if that person can't talk to you about it, then you can go. Now we got to end it, but there's such a higher road to take and it's such an easier road. And I think more people would be happy, but I think a lot of times people get relationships and they feel I can't even be, I can't do this or I can't do that and also it when you're working to people or you have kids as for? No, there's some stuff you're not going to get to do too bad, you know, fucking you should have been in the band earlier. Learn to paint in the garage. Time, lots of time when the kids are gone, hit this pet. This isn't what you wanted, you know, then then either get out now or get it together, but don't, you know you can only do so many things. Well, you know. So even using talks base, which is great for all of us who are Justin a little bit high strung, maybe anxious about crazy things like you guys know Miami's -iety issues while you can get something off your chest whenever you need to with talks base, you talk about everyday challenges at work or at home, just chat about life there.

That's how you met or where you met. You guys part series. Actually we met for the first time on. I went to barbecue at his house, but I don't remember meeting I, I live with an actor comedian named David cross who you might know he's the blue guy on rested about -ment. Okay. I've got to say blue man. Yeah, and and he was gonna show mister show and all that. So we, we were around a big group comic. So we had a party at our house and grow follow who's an old friend of mine came, and she brought him era and she was making movie with bins. So Vince and Amirah and some of the people came to our house and I thought she was Vince his girlfriend, but she wasn't. She was highway saving too because she is. That once and I didn't remember party and I only knew Vincent Janine. And then. About a year later in Seattle as music and comedy. I was up there doing comedy, and he came up to a hotel arms. Like I know you. Laid the yearling. Remember name. It's weird. Barbecue cross. Oh yeah. For fun time had no. But we had a little while right then if you watch me walk away, I saw you watch me walk away in the reflection. Then I ask somebody about it and they're like, oh yeah, she's got a boyfriend, stay away from that. She's trouble and I was like, all right. All right. And then later we're both at Harris Alon waiting to guy and they're dippy. And called deluxe in. It was like, Ozzy got his hair done and all the Rockstars. All the rock people. Inter hair. I said, hey, we've met before and she's like, I don't remember. This is the third time and he's got gotta remember. I just shot HBO's like gotta get with me. Because I was in a very dramatic really. That was, you know, I was trying to separate myself from and it was just, I just couldn't. I wasn't open to anything. Kirkman. Greg. When you met in Seattle where you like this is my wife or was it like a thing where you guys started dating, and then that's when here's what it was. She looked like she was like, if you were window shopping for something that's better than like she, it was more expensive. A line from Sexton city. Like I was like, I was like, I don't think I'm ready for this man. I'm fucking t. shirt and jeans. I'm sober for twenty two years. I'm not really at that. I still drive a Honda Civic with Cousy covers. But when but but then I thought. I need to do this. I deserve it. So I ran into there at the hair salon. I did have a moment going back to the car I went and maybe who knows, but I'm super like that. I'm more like a, I remember get married. Yeah, I'm a little bit more. I'm more in touch with the feminine number at the Harris. Lawn got bite her to show that I was doing that night with a friend and she came, which is unusual and. Fringy was also doing it. County. Your friend just told me to come to. Engineered said, you should go out with my ex-boyfriend and. Second, right? And we were both dating. I was dating the people at the time, but but like dating dating dating somebody and then I didn't have you know. But I would only if I start sleeping with somebody that I would say. But we. Eventually. We want an eight date. We went started talking. We went on a date and it went really well. And you ask her track and she broke it off almost like she. She was like, I may have to break this off and I was gonna wait. And then she had people show up days and the thing I had a friend staying with me. On my work after. So I was just like, Yep. By the end of the year where you like not interior, just like whatever. I'll go on a date with him, like whatever I'm not really into actually sent me. His just shut us an HBO comedy special. He sent it to me and that my inbox at work for a number of weeks museum, signing vans and making records. And so I thought it was a demo. And then when I finally watched as a session. Oh, so nice. And we, he was so. Why am I not seeing this person? Then I reach out to him at least started like correspondent your Email and talking and went on a date. But I still had the the ex boyfriend that was gently to lose it. So I call her your big. Oh, no, no, he was. He was literally insane. He would just come in threatened to break all the windows in my house. KTAR on your couch. Oh, very cheese, and I didn't that. So she called me. I took her out on a Thursday and Monday center flowers and. Tonight and see that there's flowers here and then break everything in my you call. She said, I can't Ono. She said. Flowers are great, but I don't really think, you know, there's this guy in his thing and I go or you don't like me. I mean, you don't have to like me. We went on a date and I'll be appointed, but I'll live through it, but you don't have to pretend like it felt like a story crank. You're the shed and she should work on sealing. She just wasn't that into. He. I'm very literal Sommese. So I said, the situation person has come unhinged and I don't want that much information. And I said, I should love what whatever it is and then you said, well, look, maybe things settled down. You know, you can give me. This was in November. She was calling January. I said, you can call me. I took you out and gave you flowers if you're tall me. And then like the next morning at like six o'clock in the morning. She's found a reason to call me about something and then and then she called me every day for. Passionate little boy banging on my my door every night. And here's a grip saying like me, have your feelings. I'm not gonna demand you my feelings and I just been through. This thing is like that is an interesting person. Joyce updating, I probably, but like I did maybe two other people went onto dates and then I'm like, I'm done. You don't have to be, but I don't even. I don't wanna. I also wanna just wanna do that to be. And then she went out on one more day with a guy who made leather pants. And I was like. I mean that's on might. Suburban, and and then. Gave her Christmas ornament and the rest of the system. But it almost seems like you maybe were like, oh, whatever. I have a lot going on. And then like the way you acted which were so nonchalant grad you became intrigued? I was very cheap because I had not been dating adults. Right? I've been. Great. Question. Twenty eight, beautiful aid. Wonderful. I think I think I think is one eighty, and I've been married for and. Actually took us about a meta month and a half, which is uncommon. My most most we, I come over, we'd listen to record. We listen to music together and then we full around and go. Girl, I'd be like, really get out. Let's go, you gotta go, oh my God. But it was worth it. All right. Moving on to our questions, we have one that's very dominating in this message board. People really wanna know he's at still as simple as he's just not that into any more just like it was back when the movie came out a decade ago because has technology changing today's times is at any different now because of apps and the prevalence of texting and Instagram. Things difficult is is with the absence degrom decision media, Stephan, the tender. You know it. Giving themselves time to get to know people anymore. Literally, just window shopping and all of a sudden the world is yours stir instead of instead of being able to look at or girls, if you go to a restaurant now I can look at hundreds of. So the thing that's difficult about it is people are not. You know, really getting know spending time to see if there is any sort of interest or connection or or what have you. But when you do break down to. Spending time together? The wolves still lied. I think I think that just because you have different ways of communicating, it's really about clarity, and it's a psych about people's intentions. I mean, the play that I would make if I could get my daughter to do it go, I'm not on anything. I'm not. You can't find that thing. I have a service you can call and leave your name. I'll get back to blow somebody's mind. They'd be like, no, no, no, I'm gonna. I'm gonna Google this person. They got, they got enough out there. Understand why wait, how do you know what other people are doing? Delaney my face. I don't know what other people I have my own life. I study. I got family tracks shit to doing your life and that can't be found. I mean, privacy, I think it's going to be the new thing. Super sexy where it's like, you can't not going to send you a picture. You want to see it come over figured out. Becker series auditioning posted anywhere, but also I know a lot of guys that don't have social media so they can cheat easier. So sometimes it's nice to see what they're doing, but also the mail today, right? Somebody Madam I would. School on that on the phone. Just calling people and no trace of text messages just calls, you know, right. I mean. Right, right. And if you're gonna have an affair man beating neat entirely with it. You know what you don't do. It doesn't hurt you. I'm always like if you got a boyfriend, have you just don't tell me about his bliss? Yeah. Yeah. I mean. But that's really interesting. But I do think privacy's really interesting move, you know, I think being able to say or look, if you wanna talk to me and talking on the phone, I'm not gonna play this game with you or not snap chatting. I'm not a, you know, but I think we give away our hand too often because we want to be accommodating. And so we do whatever that person wants to do, and then we find ourselves going what I wish I hadn't done that before we go onto the next question I do. I am currently my own life liking the phone call more than texting now. I just think texting makes me over, analyze them, like what is this mean? We're supposed to be a period after this? Or are they saying this in a mean way a nice way. And I feel like no one really calls each other FaceTime audio. The clarity is like, I know people make phone calls. They're awful. They're like talking. Bill you're talking about that is true. It's like keeping on my hair. Right. Can't hear anybody, but if you're like, I would be hearing the sound of their voice. Josie hearing like what you know what, amuses them all the issues. Issues to do that for tax through Snapchat pictures or what have you? I think that's great. Go landline. Landline. I would get rid of all my technology. Would go away if it was just a landline with. That's what we have to think of somebody like you'd be home when they called you to think about them. There's no caller ID that they called and gigging leave a message. I mean, it was it was agonizing, but at the same time, there was something really nice about it because you, you have opportunity, make less mistakes. We were alive when this was the thing, not when we were dating. But when I liked voice in middle school, I'd be on the phone with them. And then my mom would fucking turn on AOL and is like. I'm talking to Stephen flying. So. Job. All right. Next one in the from the fans, how do you recommend attracting a guy in the beginning? Mostly the book gives tips on how to keep a guys interest once you already got it. It's. I'm firm believer of if you if you go to the places in your life where you shine like where you feel confident and beautiful and are being like a fuller version of yourself. Someone will definitely come around and fuck that up with their love. What you become really happy and able to put your head down on your pillow at night and feel like if it was only me I'd be okay. And. Last year. Right? I mean, the same thing can happen to me. I. Sober neural who like through a Skillet at me and I called my mom and dad go, maybe I just creep mirrored. She'll get married man make because I, I've never gotten close and I don't. And I'm just like I have my own apartment. I really like it like I like my life right now doing stand up, but I just dating is just like, I don't want to do it, you know, and and I don't care and maybe I'm a bachelor, nothing wrong with that. And and then this. Happens like that. I met scooter. Braun, we all know scoot Arana's. Yeah, at a bar and I was like, oh, well, you have because I love him and his wife, and he was like, you have to go places where people are smart. And I'm like, where Jimmy, your wife and he's like, I met her at a Ted. Talk to go places where you'll meet great people. You're not gonna meet him here and also probably know trashed at Ted talk to. Right? Yeah, right. And they're, they're, you know, they're looking for late mints. The great thing about this is you can have holding himself. If you can have sex random, you can find if you it's like Houston, not be able to meet somebody and then you have sex with them because they were the person you met. And then even if you just want us, they didn't wanna have sex, but he didn't know. But now it's like this lousy -bility to find people to do that. There can be, it can be compartmentalized. And so your options are you can do that or you can be a person who hooks up. You can also not hook up, right? You have the choices and. And I think that makes it easier because you aren't. You don't have to conflict. You don't have to screw somebody's life up by making them having sex with them too soon because you actually really like them. But anytime you have anything intimate happened too fast, even in a friendship, it's a little bit weird afterwards. Like we were that close a friend when Harry met Sally, he freaked out for a second brain. Yeah. Yeah. I think intimacy is something that's earned. Actually. You want it to last a long time because once you're over that thing and you're in a relationship, you know. No, it's not quite like the beginning. So make that beginning last I don't know by, hopefully I'll find. We're going to wrap up with you guys. Tell us what it what the book it's just a date is about all our single out there about to go on her state. It's just nothing. Date is a book that we wrote because we we're getting a lot of questions and feedback from people who are like dating doesn't exist anymore. It's all like apps and hooking up and hanging on groups and meeting places. But there is no dating or people only wanna tax they don't want to talk is that thing of. The great Malays of this generation people is there's no formality today, the way it used to be. And we wrote that book basically is a message of is use at the value of your time, not anybody else. And if you want to be taken on dates in some someone's like, you know you on hookup or you want to be that still like I'm available for dinner next Thursday. I'm a busy person with plans, or they say, you want when you want to hook up in a call me for the answer. Like it's just how to communicate setting your valley load yet. You want good. Also, I find it really odd that like when I like somebody I wanted to be alone with them. Yeah, that's what a data want. I want to or three hours of your time, just us. I don't want other people to be around. So if it's dinner or don't play tennis or going on a hike, want that thing. I don't understand why people don't people. When. I mean, like get some fucking balls like it's enough already raising these men that thing. It's like the guy I'm dating and it right now actually, who was like hitting me up on my Instagram like, oh, when are we going to hang out? And I would say the data mirror and then he wouldn't follow through. And then one day I said he message me. I was like, listen, no fence. I don't have the time and energy for this, but if you wanna go out, I'll go on a date. And then we went on a date and I wasn't really well. Wait, why? Why don't you hit me. Because he has a bad habit that you just broke. You have to break. It's just like lives out here. It's like, fifteen. I don't date adult. So not not on. Also, it's a matter of mental biz lays, is you lead type of things, but what let him he's really go because someone else will accept that Warren is like a diamond in the rough. I let I let them get away with so much. People will laugh at me. Because they don't want to start over. A lot of people think of something's better than nothing might be blocking you from and you've learned so much. We should start over you like you have all this information. Everything you do is a is a step on another path and then you. Okay, now I know. Okay, this crappy thing, I'm right all this stuff down on our member and I'm gonna practice it. But I mean, you're certainly worthy of having somebody follow you around. I mean, I I like that that made it difficult. I liked it. She didn't just wanna come over right away. I liked it really. I really make it happen. I had to put my to put into action because by the time I did, I didn't want to run. So like once we had sex, I wasn't like, oh, man, I was wrong. So many guys so many guys, like, I don't know what's happened, but Nope. Energy was driving at the whole time that other energy was driving it, but eventually to know somebody and that energy does my waiting. And you know that person is still wanna talk to you. I want. I don't want to go anywhere. I want to stay. I wanna stay here like I've never podcast before. What they're feeling feeling, what what are you. You like yesterday concentrating on. That's always a question. Where where are you at with? No. So concerned with how you're being and what there's something there for you stop actually recognizing what your feelings are, and that's I can be dangerous territory. 'cause you can find yourself in something like, oh, actually, I can't person all, or they're done as a box of hammers so anxious. Nobody in this room needs story that whether they're good enough. You guys, I'm upset with you. But I have so much more ask, will you come back? We do. Yeah, we love you our and we are so thankful for your time. Thank you for having been great. We enjoy coming out that you wanna plug or working people find you guys. We just released a couple of we. So how'd you sucking?

Nece is an all of alaska the wilderness. Like what is not wilderness in alaska. I don't chew now anchorage. I still don't think that counts. I mean no shade through alaska. There you know that is their thing. I wanna go so badly while not after this story because this woman okay Her and her brother and his girlfriend all went out in the wilderness for a low vaca- to stay a yurt. G walks outside to use the outhouse. Because you can't shit a yurt okay. It's basically just a fancy tent. Fancy round tent. that's elevated from the ground. What's the difference between a yogurt and glamping or do you glimp- in a yurt. I mean i think typically sort is used for glamping Okay but you don't have to in a yurt got it thank you. I don't i don't know if they were glamping. Sound like because she went into this outhouse she said that she sat down on the toilet and then something immediately bit her on the but right is she sat down. Her brother came running out because he heard her screaming and they initially thought that it was like a squirrel. Or mink ke- something small. But when they opened the toilet seat there was a bear staring back at them. A back fucking. We'll ask questions saying was it was it hibernating in there. Perhaps it was unclear. Okay so the brother said. I opened the toilet seat and there's just a bare face. Just right there at the level of the toilet seat. Just look right back up through the hole right at me. He said he shut the lid as fast as i could. I said there's a bear down there. We gotta get out of here now and we ran back to the year as fast as we could so as far as i can because at first i was like okay. Is this one of those houses. That's really just like an open hole alike in front of a river and she just like didn't see through no. I'm pretty sure this was like an indoor structure in the bear had managed to get into the structure and then into the ship receptacle. Why why would you wanna be there. Unless i'm so sorry to do this. You are hiding from the s officers because the only thing that image makes me. Think of is the scene from schindler's list and i say that as the granddaughter of a holocaust survivor these images haunt me. Assure sure daily And that why. Why is the bare their right. I love when when you invoke the holocaust i. I'm so sorry but that is the first thing that this made me think. Because that's the only other time i can think in media you know at which is where i get all of my references and my life force is from entertainment and i can't think of any other time that someone was just hiding an inside the toilet of an outhouse seen a. I really don't understand like why a bear. What have you have so many other choices for for where you could hide or go to sleep in. Just i think bears famously have a very powerful sense of smell. You would say so unless that was the cleanest outhouse ever or alaska in alaska thinks you smell different. It's so cold you take a shit it's just gonna go is. There is no odor interesting. I guess the wound wasn't that bad. The brother and sister they were able to fix it up in the next morning. They found bear tracks all over. The property didn't see a bare anymore. They figured the bear got inside the house through an opening at the bottom of the back door. that's why it makes. It seem like maybe these were just like out. House like an outhouse structure. Because i initially. I was just picked picturing like a house at the beginning of shrek where he bursts it. Open some buddy. One told me the world is gun. Romi there's also a neighbor living about a half a mile away that sent him a photo showing a black bear on her property a couple of days later so they were like mystery. Solved it as a black bear. That homeowner apparently tried yelling at the bear. But it didn't react it also didn't approach. But lumbered about its business like it was in a walking hibernation mode which did not know was a mode of hibernation. The bears could go into walking hibernation. That feels like the best phrase to describe our depression exactly. That's why we're all winter. Seasonal affective disorder is is walking hyper nation and it's because we literally evolution airily should not be awake right now my brain says go to sleep. Oh yeah also. The wildlife guy was like. I don't think you actually got bit. I think it just scratched due on the ass so like denying her experience and questioning typical. Just saying oh you had this moment. I don't think that's actually what it was. And how about you talked to the bite marks on my assholes man next staff at the university of michigan library had to temporarily close the building after three venomous. Spiders were found in the basement. Storage area. no don't like this at all. The way that you feel about. Snakes is how i feel about spiders. I an intense intense fear of spiders. And i do not like thinking about them when their venomous right so venomous a library was like shut it down vacuum this place. They did say so. According to a university spokeswoman spiders or not in any public part of the library and that staff closed the building due to a misunderstanding. An out of an abundance of caution which is it. That was the statement. But those are contradictory points. Ma'am was it. A misunderstanding or an abundance of caution can't be both now. I'm going to start doing. I'm just gonna start listing a bunch of possibilities. Whenever i'm explaining something and you can just pick which one you like. Best instead found mad lib. Yeah they were they were like. Oh it wasn't you know we didn't have to shot the whole shutdown. But i guess it didn't hurt the mediterranean. It was a mediterranean recluse spider of them not scientifically named recluse is not a friend right. That is not good. Yeah i guess they like enjoy living like basements and boiler rooms and you know just all of the places. But i'm never going anyway. So that's that's fine by me at a sight out of mind i did. I'm just like having a visceral. i can't feel my body like tightening. Okay take deep breaths. Thinking about there was a time in college because there was like this kind of grassy woodsy ness right outside of my dorm. When no and i lived on the first floor and there was a big lake hairy spider that ran across my floor and i have nightmares about that spider and the fact that that was just the one that i saw. I do like this is a university. Were able kind of like call up a biology professor and be like look at these spiders and tell us what they are. Probably biologists like most exciting day of the year. Yeah this is my this is my this is there like is there a doctor in the house and they can actually for the first time be like jess s because technically there doctor. Everyone for the whole their whole life is like. You're not a real doctor nerd. No one's asking for your help on anything. There is no emergency in which you would be called for so chill and now this time they're like oh well. The tables have turned. Guess what you better evacuate this building. 'cause this spider will kill us all anyway. Yeah the spider professor was like. Yeah they can cause some pretty big damage from minor skin irritation to tissue death. Which i do not like the sound of. I don't like the sound of that either. It does apply to you because you always have tissues like in your nooks and crannies famously. I shove kleenex and other tissue. Just kind of in my thigh gap When i'm sitting down. And then i forget about it and i stand up and it falls down in a dog gets it and then my mom tries to get it from the dogs draws and then the dog bites my mom and then frames me energy. She starts to cry. And it's like thing that definitely happened multiple times when i was temperature. Kogyo tissue. Death and finally authorities in arizona have accused a man of faking his own kidnapping binding his own wrists gagging himself and inventing a story of hidden treasure in the desert. All to get out of work for a month though we should hire this person the imagination the dedication the commitment. It's all there. It's just not being used in the right occupation. This is an entire disney pixar film. Okay people go to school to learn this type of like scripting and hans pulled it out. Riots he did stage design. He did set design. He did costumes acting old it except he actually did not sell it in a statement. Police said that the nineteen year old guy admitted that during an interview with detectives that he made up the kidnapping story. This is though i never believe. Oh you admitted a during a police interview well. Was there a lawyer present. We've all seen making a murderer. Yeah okay was there. Did you get registered. Miranda rights miranda hobbes. Do you think that's why. They named her maranda and made her lawyer. I would not surprised. The amount of times groaned out loud at the word play on sex and the city in the past two weeks. Did they name harry carey because she carries a lotta shopping bags. Yeah anyway. Here's what i don't understand the police show up because someone called them and said hey we found a man they get there and the guy. Still bounding gagged like. Can you imagine finding a person being. Like i just. I'm not even going to touch him until the police get here. You just leave someone tida. I mean kovin. I guess i don't know i just like i just love the idea of this person meeting like i'm just gonna kinda just stay right here and even though now that i'm saying it out loud i'm like i probably would. Who are you do you think you are. I don't wanna touch anybody. The guy eventually told officers that he had been out on an errand when two masked men abducted him struck him in the back of the head and knocked him unconscious according to the department he told investigators that he had been kidnapped because his father had a large amount of money hidden throughout the desert so these kidnappers were looking for his father's headed money. Okay owl's much less. Let's see you're going to have a bunch of Juvenile delinquents come in dig you a bunch of Even six foot by six foot holes at the desert anyway after days of investigating detectives couldn't verify any of his account didn't get checked into a hospital anywhere. There was no like security camera footage of any of this So eventually they concluded. That historically was fabricated. No kidnapping assault occurred. But again i i. We're just taking their word for it but it sounds like they might be covering something up and there might be treasure hidden in the arizona desert. I'm believe it time to start digging. And that's it for this week's worth things. I if you want to hear and see even more stories that were brutally light from this week's episode patriot on patriots dot com slash work for that and so much more next. We're diving deep into our email but her emails dive deep deep deep deep deep dive deep tidy tidy. Tidy time. let's everybody's been doing emails. They just they can't get enough of this stuff okay. It doesn't matter that the pandemic has been going on for almost a full year now or that stopped being able to read six months ago. Everybody just keeps sending me. They're stupid little emails and expecting me to reply to them and it turns out everybody needs reminding of what a proper email should contain because my my inbox is full of absolute belt and actually cannot frankly in fact i won't not be accepting these trashing emails anymore so this week. Let's dive deep into some of the worst email behavior. Oh next of all the hours of emailing our nine. Am to six pm. Eastern standard time excluding weekends and holidays. Other exclusions may apply if i get a single message outside of the legal email window. You're getting spam filtered. Yeah you thought you play fast and loose with the rules small. Now you can have fun with the erectile dysfunction emails and you barreled. Elizabeth work email last friday night at six forty nine and i just wanted to take this opportunity. Publicly admonished you for what i consider an active violence name. Shame shame shame. Dreamy doesn't g mail now g mail. Don't they have a built in feature. You can schedule your Yeah email young. Can i have tricks. There's a lot of these productivity websites business websites to try to tell you here's the most affected time to send an email. Guess what you're sending it outside of these hours of business. I'm not looking at Even in the morning. When i get into the office it goes right into the trash. I still probably be better for my mental health. If i turned off my email notifications email notifications on your phone. Yeah i just never look at. I as someone who has team that blew my fucking mind. What were you should clarify at the top. That most of this is just behavior that berry ask well. Yeah it surprises me because you rarely respond to emails but also like why do that to yourself. i don't have notifications on an. I have to be on my email all the time clear. I think it's just that i don't really get that many email i know and now i get so many. I've just let my inbox get out of control to the point where i have so many nonsense emails from newsletters and shed that i'm a it's like it's just like white noise you should just get a work email instead of having them both be the same. That'd be a good idea. what not just next. Don't send me any email. That says just circling back on this. Okay oh you're just circling back book. T-bond circling dora. I'll see you on the next time around. If you send me an email requires my response. I assure you it's sitting in my inbox absolutely burning a whole insides. I think about it all day along with the how one hundred other things that i've been organ my life eat away at me. I don't need you to remind me that. I haven't replied yet and guess what bumping up this email is just going to send me further spiral. It's better that you just let it sit there until the guilt consumes me entirely and i'm forced to reply or else l. die that's fair and don't you dare say just kindly following up on this. There's nothing kind about following up. Its harassment is what it is. You're harassing me. These things take time an email reply for me. It's like one of those bonds banzai. Trees grow it's gotta have space and time sometimes weeks or even months. They take a lot of care a lot of detail. Orientation is what i'm saying is like i. You're not just going to not just gonna like splooge our reply. It's gotta take it's got. I have to tend to it behind the scenes by kindly following up you. Just ruin the vibe. You killed the spirit you you murder my bonsai tree it is dead so don't kindly follow up on anything because you're you're getting big old. Fuck you from this house. Also i don't wanna get any email that starts with nice to eimi. I'm definitely guilty of this was a chill out house. Okay you have an. It's always oh nice to to meet you and before you know it it's out sorry to bother you. Can i ask you For for a quick little e favor no you don't know me. We don't know each other. I won't hear it. i also. This is like semi related. I want us as a society as a culture to move away from emails being formatted based on letter writing like most email addresses. Have our name in it. We don't need to do it like hey hey there dear blah blah blah comma enter and then starting a paragraph like. Why can't we just send them more like we send tax. You know what. I mean especially when it's like replying in a thread over and over again. We don't need to say hi every fucking time we just don't we know we're both emailing about. Is i think the initial email is is always like the most formal. But then when you're just replying the stuff it's like just chill just reply. I don't want to be the person to not start the email with high. You know like someone else has to do it. And then we all follow suit. Why don't we all agree that that's how he started. You know. get to the point next. Don't reply to any email i send with. Maybe we can hop on the phone and chat about this. Why don't you pull your message in a little bottle and shove it up your asshole. Since we're just throwing out crazy ideas that nobody wants to do chatting on the phone as a response to a text message an email psychotic behavior okay. I don't want to ever talk on the phone. And frankly if you suggest were enemies next every possible. Ending to an email is just offensive to me. Personally this gets at know the letter issue. Yes there's a right way to end in email without me being like okay. So we're in a fight like best best you sign off when you want somebody to know that you're like not afraid to slash their tires okay. Don't you dare cheers. We're not at a fucking bar right. Guess what. I don't see salmon diane anywhere. I don't know anything about cheers. Never seen about show. Also my least favorite is thanks so much in advance or honestly just thanks. It's just like don't thank me. Unless i've already agreed to do what you're demanding we're not going to do is make presumptions assumptions suppositions. Okay i call your. Thanks in advance. And i raise you a. I'll see what i can do. That's that's what i say next any email that doesn't contain at least one exclamation point is a threat. I don't know when it happened. But using a period after a sentence is now considered a dakhla ration- of war according to the eighteen sixty four geneva conventions. Were just all in this terrible trap. And i'm in it. I use an exclamation point after absolutely anything. I don't know how to get out of that. Unfortunately exclamation points are now the only way to end the sentence or else we're in a fight and there's this whole thing that like genders at to where it's like women have to use more exclamation points because otherwise they seem like they're being like bossy or whatever but i think that just everyone should use exclamation points because no matter the gender anyone who emails me without exclamation points. I obviously think they're mad at me. And then i cry. So why can't everyone just show some enthusiasm in their speech via the exclamation point. I don't know if it's just that i've been out of liked office setting for so many years. Now that i'm not used to like corporate kind of emailing patterns And to be clear. The office. Job that i had was at buzzfeed where nobody was professional. Anyway so next I hate a no subject bitch. Okay oh you think your time is so valuable. You think you're so important with your cut to the chase attitude. We're just gonna jump right into things aren't we can't even be bothered to hit me with the highlight up. Top shows some fucking effort. Okay do something with your life. Don't you stick your email into me. Dry this lou. Girl up i okay. Do you know what. I miss at the scene but also frankly i think all emails should just be a bullet pointed list. I feel like i can hear You know the scholars who listen to unhappy our saying. Oh we're losing the word. What about paragraphs what about you know. What about language. Aren't you a writer. Didn't you go to journalism school. Don't you want people to read. No i don't. I don't wanna read anything. I will dumb it down okay. If you're sending me paragraphs oh baby. I'm not reading all of that. I don't care if there are details that need explaining extra jokes you want to make you know the beauty of language you want to explore. I'm going to need to edit down also other types of emails. I don't wanna get any email that tells me to do something if it requires me to open up another window and when i'm talking about specifically as banks credit card companies doctor offices i've had enough of them sending me a whole email just to be like. Oh you have a message in the message center log on to read it now. This is my message center. Okay right you reach the message center. Leave your fucking message right here to open a whole other website. Just because you tickled me with with a little teaser especially known that message is oh you money. Oh you're going to tell me my credit card. Payment is due but not show me how much i in the body of the email so i have to open up an app and see what my balances be confronted with that horror no gas. Who's not getting paid today. Girls you know. finally. I don't wanna see any email containing a bill okay. Don't send a bill to my inbox. I prefer to get a bill in the mail from post person so that i can sit on the countertop on opened for several weeks i don't need to go into the same inbox right conduct off my erotic pen palling and then see the fact that i owe someone money no bill emails and frankly no emails period a men this has been my manifesto manifesto if you will wow new segment yes.

Who's she's the one that always walks across the keyboard and turns everything off. I don't have any animals in my apartment. Well that i that. I care for personally you know there might be stuff skittering around. We have no idea but there. It's times like these that i regret. I would love to have a cat run across my laptop. There's a couple of there's a coup- those two cats and a chihuahua and they're at an in an uneasy truce because they're all babies but it's it's really fun but it's definitely Muppet i guess that keeps it exciting. Well we like to start by asking. What is one thing you hate that. Everybody else loves carry sue. I okay but there's reasons why i find it's delicious okay and i always want to eat it after dinner but then it keeps me up all night because it's coffee right. It's unclear. i feel like i finally gotten a grip on like how much energy a cup of coffee. We'll give me like how many milligrams of caffeine are in a cup of coffee. And yeah yeah you. Can't that a slice of term assu. Well also it's usually at the end of meal at a late meal like a european meal like served at nine pm eight pm and then so you get the tear musso around ten and i always want to eat it because i'm always down for it but then i'm up all night in my airbnb or wherever right freaking out. I can't have coffee at night. I can drink in the morning. Which i love so tyranny says should be a breakfast dish but it's never serve for breakfast right. We can change that. I feel like we could start. Could start the rebrand or like d. calf serum issue. That's what we need but it's so good with the like cappuccino espresso all of the different ways you can make it and then it's just like i don't really care about the calories caffeine. It makes me stay up forever and also it gives me a kind of real weird sweaty anxiety. Yeah i'm i'm learning that to you. I don't know if it's just been because i'm constantly on edge these days Or if my relationship with caffeine is just getting a little too unhealthy but there is a fine line between being energized. And being out of your fucking mind with coffee and i straddle that line. I feel like a long rage trucker. Yeah i feel like an ice road trucker up all night. Like i feel like it's like for me. It's like meth because it sugar caffeine chocolate. It's cake will lady fingers still to this day. Loves a cup of black coffee after especially dunkin donuts. Cuffy about stuff strong. Yeah yeah he loves that coffee in particular and knee love to drink it and like very. It's very like sophisticated and adult. But i don't. I don't think i should do. I can't i can't and vibe and so i'm jealous and angry and then but i always order it right. I always order the term easter. I made earlier early in the pandemic and it took Took about fourteen hours but it was worth it. Ll made my own from scratch. Oh i got row. I went all italian all in. Because i'm italian. I say i'm chef boyardee. Italian like my family is our sauce. Comes from mccann. It's not that fancy. But i'm trying to lean into it. My talionis well. You're you're ben. How is the pandemic been. Have you been holding up. you know. It's different degrees of happiness and insanity in that like i just you know. I've never spent this much time in my house for the last thirty five years. But i have a a nice place to live. I live alone. Will i live with these animals and They're the best wishes me and my dog. And then i got the cats about a month ago and this is like really fun but it's also i'm like. Whoa who am i. If i don't do standup comedy you know it's because stand up. Comedians are not necessarily just able to just not do comedy. You know everybody can sort of maybe work from home. We can't really. We can't did some degree like we can do like podcast. We can do streaming shows which is gray. But i really haven't done a stand up comedy show in almost a year and it's very weird so i realized a lot of my personality is about that right. That is the that is the thing about i. Guess quarantine is everyone's confronted with. Oh it turns out that that thing that i was doing every day was an integral part of my personality. That is now just a for the past twelve months. Yeah have you gotten had. Have you done anything unexpected. The last twelve months. I have been well cleaning. Because that's all there is to do. But that's a whole nother thing unto itself and i mean i do have a sourdough starter. His name is son home rule. It's the nancy silverton sour dough starter with grapes mixed with like a traditional sourdough starter. So i have to that. I blended into one and then i it's through the pandemic. I had been feeding him every day. He had this pride of place in my kitchen where it was like constantly seventy one degrees and then i was like what he's got to go to daycare like i put him in boarding school in their frigerator because i can't with this era star and the animals who eat raw right which is a whole nother like crazy and trying to plants. They all. The plants died that. I tried to have so. I can't do. you don't know how people do it. I mean. I guess it's water and care for them but i just that sounds like too much her keeping it alive. It's hard you know it's also keeping it alive and being aware of it and doing the right things for it right right at this point. I'm lucky if i shower myself. If the the less. I have to do for others in this house. Yeah yeah i mean. The only thing that i do is if i get dick. I'll use the day. Sure sure that's about. I did just get one of the brigades that you attach the toshiba day. They they do sponsor show at grace. So this is my first experience with a betray and yes. It's the first blast was a little shocking. I'm not gonna lie the more i use. I think i'm like building up the callus a little. Bit and I'll java i'm big fan big fan. I love it. I mean i love it. I've had a day in this house. While i've been here for twenty years and i had the same day here for twenty years and then my parents have all the fancy japanese ones because they go to japan and they bring them home and they attach them and they're so nice. Those mine only has just a water. Function the basin but there's like air music water. Sounds if you wanna cover episode. It's different pressure of like if it's a jet or if it's just a babbling right depending on the mood that you're in you might be in a different mood. Sometimes you might not want a harsh and the hose it down. You might want to just like a spray a mist your and walk your ass into. Yeah i mean it is truly like bees. Are the most exciting things that are happening these days. So you have to celebrate the small things and if that's yeah having a cleaner asshole then that's where we're at. That's where we're at. I mean that in cooking which. I think it kind of goes hand in hand with that but i been cooking a lot and i've learned how to cook thai food which is really fun. I actually even have a mortar and pestle that i have to wear a skirt and sit on low to the ground and put the the mortar between my legs and like the baseball back. Like it is so to me. It's like the most asian. I've ever been his skirt on the ground with the pestle between my legs. Uh-huh hounding i yeah. There are certain things in cooking. 'cause i've been baking ally and there are some things like needing things there. Were quiet way much more effort than i anticipated like my arms are genuinely either. I'm so weak in the upper body or shis tough. Because i break a sweat. Yeah it's very tough. I don't have a kitchen aid. So when i make the bread i have to really need it. And it's it's physically challenging to do that I love that. I mean i feel like i went into this pandemic being like okay. I ju podcast of your comedy and coming out of it. Hopefully if we come out of it. I'm like i a full-blown baker now like this is my identity. This is what i do proportionally Yeah so that's this is where this is where we're both at it. Sounds like i mean because we have to do something because if we're not doing comedy it's like who are we right what do we. What do we worse. I don't know if you're like a comedian. Not doing comedy. It's like what is your life purpose. That's what i saw. Maybe this i. I haven't quite thought out this question but do you. Do you feel funny right now. Like have you felt funny. And you just don't have an outlet for it. And i ask that because i i've there are days where i'm just like i just don't feel like being funny did i can't muster it or it it's like I don't even know what being funny is. Because there's nobody to see it so is it. A tree falls in the forest. Is this funny or is this. Just funny to me or is this a joke. I don't even know like it's like we have no perspective because we have no mirror or no no focus from somebody else to sort of tell us. Oh yeah that's funny and usually that's kind of the way it is anyways. I don't even realize that anything is funny at all just like present. It and then people perceive it as funny but not. That's never my intention even rights just like oh okay you know. I don't even know so here and the other aspect of it. Someone just sent me a tweet. That was like it's important to remember right. Now that everybody you talk to is out of their fucking minds right now like and so it is like it's hard to gauge whether something even if you're tweeting or doing something on instagram. It's hard to tell whether something is actually hitting and working because it's like everybody is fucking out of it right now. We're we're all losing. We're all losing at but at least we're all losing it at the same time. Just the one. I guess it's the one comfort is that everybody is needing kind of self care. Everybody's needing a kind of reassurance that it's gonna get better things are gonna change and we're going to be okay right right. I mean. I feel like we're all that's the hope. At least we're all sort of like buying into the idea that we're all going to get back to normal but we'll see you know let's say at least we have technology i mean. What if this happened in the nineties where we would have to be like making scenes and writing the thank god would not have. I would not have been able to do that for sure now. I would have topped even due to the nineties. I i like reading. But i could never make one right right. Yeah i mean. I thought about that about the nineteen eighteen pandemic like what. What did they drew. You didn't have netflix. Didn't have anything to distract like you. You sowed i guess. Probably making bread too. So were baking bread. They were probably. I know they were probably will fighting for the right to vote right There was a different time so they were like not even thinking about the things like streaming was wasn't possible for them. Movies didn't even really exist. That much john anyway just started. I'm sure you know the next pandemic one hundred years from now they'll be saying the same thing about us like like how did they do these zoom zoom. They'll like find old screen shots from zooms and they'll be like six amazing. They didn't have sexology. They did. I wish they had sex. That would be great. Yeah at some point. If nobody's gonna invent it with all this time on their hands where we probably never will so we'll see we'll find out in the next year if they made it work. Yes i hope so. You have some live shows coming up though you're going to or you've been doing some virtual stuff yes. I did one a big one on valentine's day. And then i'll i'll continue to do them. I don't know exactly when now. But it'll be a recurring thing i mean. I have a pretty strong voice over career to animation movie over the moon which is the first big asian american animated features on netflixing in. It's up for a golden globe and so then. There's a lot of different adamant shows that i've been doing which is great but it's also something that is like. Oh it's so weird you know. I don't know when i'll be up i mean. When do you think we can do comedy again. I don't know. I mean. I was trying to think of that. 'cause i'm all i've been doing a couple of virtual bangs and it's weird to say like okay. We'll do something similar next month and the month after that. And it's i i don't like thinking of virtual as a thing that's gonna be around much longer. Let's kinda you kinda have to plan for that. Yeah i don't know but there's an art to it you know. There's there's a way to do it. It's like figuring out how to do that really well. I think is going to be a good a good project. And so i've been doing them pretty consistently over the last year and i think it's it's really fun. There's ways to make it really exciting and fun for ourselves too. Yeah you did. You did a valentine's day show. That was sort of giving dating advice. Lots of sex advice and like relationship advice and also influenced. I was influenced a lot by last year. I hosted the first virtual folsom street fair. Which is the largest. Dsm festival in the world. Then i regularly attend which is on folsom street in san francisco. But this time they went online and so it was the first time that i got to see all the applicants and all the performers in. There's so many new fetishes that i couldn't believe like there was a guy that was like all done up in duct tape in like an outfit. He made at a silver duct tape and then he was like sticking and unsticking himself inside of the tape and it was a little bit but it was also like hair removal but it was also kind of ups slash amazon prime. Mary blake box right rock. Who is really a box cutter and box cake. Then there was another one where speaking of planets it was they were using. Cactus for pain play so instead of leather. It's like cruelty free cruelty free cruelty right right so cactus spines succulents trickling and it was really amazing. They were like in a greenhouse. I was really moved by it. So she's talking about all these new fetish up. Yeah i mean. I feel like we're going to emerge with a new slate of fetishes. Like at this point my fetish was just seeing someone slips like i in the teeth for the first time is going to be titillating. I know but there's a lot that to me really reminds me of the last pandemic which for in my mind was aids and with aids. What happened was that we couldn't fluid bond with sex. So that's how the sim became such a big phenomenon because people were looking for ways to be intense and intimate without putting themselves at risk or if they were hiv positive putting other people at risk on that kind of thing was really a valuable lesson to be learned in. So there's a lot of joy and goodness that can come out of restriction. That i think is important too. I think that there's going to be a lot of intense weird a saliva based droplets based fetishes. Yes coming out of this. I yeah. I'm on board. You have a long list of things that we we haven't talked about that. You hate so. I wanted i to chat about as many of them as we can beer. I hate beer. Just all of this is. This is why i have to quantify. I've never had a beer. Okay so you're it out before you even try ruled it out and i don't drink alcohol anymore but i always thought there was something strange about it because people. I just want an ice cold beer or a guinness which is warm It just seemed like your drinking bread riot. Four something predigested. There's like yeast and and grain. That's predigested somehow the foaming. I don't know it freaked me out. Yeah i never had a beer. Maybe my experience. Because i feel like i m just expected to be culturally opposed to beer as You know a homosexual or it's just like oh you can't you can't get a beer. I have to order a cocktail at the bar but my experience with beer is all the horrible like american. There is essentially water. That i'm drinking. The idea of an irish like stout that is thick like physically sick. When you drink it is disgusting to me. It's like a shake all it a solid but not it's not sweet and there's just something off about it i i don't like any sort of brown liquor either. I don't like a whiskey or bourbon or anything because it just gives me a headache. So i like something. Like i'd like a vodka more something that's very. It seems more like a easier to assimilate to my body. Doesn't feel like it's gonna give me a headache. Ya you had a couple about like facial like exfoliating. It's it's because it's like you if you start you can't stop and then if you don't start it's like the thing but then it's like when you use a retinol. You have to use a sunscreen. I mean you should always use sunscreen anyway but this intensifies the need for it so because if you like melt anything off your face you've got to put something to protect it so then you can't even go in the sun and it's like a very to me it's like it's it's so much of a cycle that you cannot stop doing. So i hate any kind of exploitation because koreans also We have this thing about exploitation where they'll tear off the first layer of skin spa. And you get a scrub. Everything's gone because they think that the epidermis is dirty by it's just nature of being skin so they just repeat it all off and it's really scary i. I'm too afraid to do any anything stronger than like a wash cloth because i was asking that sensitive that like all bleed like all. My skin will straight up. Peel right off. But i guess that's the koreans try to get to the base layer to the durmus and it's not gonna happen unless it's like you know road rash like very much like it's so abrasive and it's a kind of it's almost like a protestant christian idea of cleanliness original sin. We've gotta clean at all off when it's really to me. It's just not. I don't like it. Yeah literally scraping it stuff off of you. Yeah no good. No no and this one i saved because i feel like it is the most aggressive chicken nuggets. Because it's this is like to me. They're so good and you keep eating. But then you're like what am i eating. Exactly what is right. What what is this chicken. Tender is probably better but a chicken nugget is like what is this. There's no real understanding of what is ground chicken. I don't know the the meat is very. It's strange because it's like not recognizable as meat. That's just how processed is it. But it's so. I want to eat them on right. Yeah that is true that the tender still identifiably chicken but a nugget is. That could be anything i mean. I think what it is is. It's just chicken parts. And then i got way too far in like trying to cook where i went to chinatown and i got a whole bird and try to dismantle it and then i couldn't and it was a chew overwhelming and then it had the head and i was like had taken off couldn't deal with it and then i went back to the same chinatown so i asked for one that was cut up because i thought well i'll just get the chicken body than i could with it but it came in and i had the chicken body but it had two heads and i was like this is really fucked like i don't know what's happening and then i had to put the heads outside. Yeah i'm just trying you know. I have a hard time facing the reality of meat right me too. Yeah the only way. I can really do it if i just completely separate like. It's just real cognitive dissonance. That has to happen because the more confronted with the fact that it used to have a face. I can't do it. it's awful but then you see like the chicken head and the eyes are closed and it just looks really sad and then you have two heads and it's like i like well i will think about that now so I think we're just about out of time. I didn't wanna get to gosh in the beginning but thank you so much for doing this. I i don't remember. You came to buzzfeed like five years ago. When i when i was there. Yeah and you told me you were the one that was like a. Have you thought about doing standup. You should do stand up. And i really hadn't before then and Yeah i i think about that so much and that was really like it was very very helpful in pushing me and getting me to do it and so good so thank you thank you and now we're here five years later and we will do stand up again. Some exactly seventy get there. Well thank you so much before Before we let you go where what should people go. Check out right now. People can see over the moon on netflix. Which is there I have an instagram. It's margaret underscored show. I have twitter margaret show Margaret dot com is. Where all my things are. My things may things and Yeah i'm doing different things. That may come out at some point. We'll see we'll thank you so much. And i hope i hope we get to see what another person again sometime all right. We're almost there. We're almost at the end of the show. But first our chasers chasers are the gut stuff that help all the bad shit. Go down easier starting with do better. White people where we highlight some anti-racism resources and other actions. We can take to make the world a little bit better this week. I wanted to highlight the trans justice funding project so basically over the last month there have been like a really scary seemingly coordinated effort across at least seven states to pass anti trans bills in state legislatures. It's like all of these. Different states are introducing anti trans legislation. and a lot of times it's like there's one group that will i kind of right a template and then all of these people just kind of copy the template and then try to pass it in their state And so there's at least been states right now where the bills are actually getting like hearings or votes this week and of course there's plenty of other states where their interest is legislation. That's not necessarily getting hearing or a vote but it's still under consideration so it's really scary so the really enraging thing also is that polls show that most people don't want this to happen they don't like even trump voters are like There's like a human rights campaign pull. That was like no. We don't care about that. Nobody wants this habit or at least a huge huge majority of people don't want this to happen so it's just cruel especially considering trans people particularly trans people of color. Trans women of color remain among the most disadvantaged and discriminated against so it really is more important now than ever to help out trans folks and the trans justice funding project just one group by they spread funds to grassroots organizations that support trans people in communities all across the country. So if you're looking for one spot to give some money that spreads it around to a whole bunch of other spots. This is a good one. You could go to the lincoln our show notes and give them some money. If you can and help support trans folks all right. Let's go onto what tv. We've been watching this week berry. What you've been watching haven't really been watching. Anything new is still on that northern exposure train. But i did want to mention that. I saw monari so beautiful so good and i wanted to talk about it because it wasn't just like the straight to video also in theaters and you rent it. You had to actually buy tickets for a specific day and then you could start watching it between the hours of seven and eleven and you had four hours to watch it. And i hadn't really done something like that before in this virtual life. We all live in now. And i really enjoyed it. Felt like it was more of an event and like we like had to have dinner done at a certain time and it was fun and it was also just a really really beautiful movie. So that is what. I've been watching this week. Lovely what am i you. I don't think i've said yet. But i or at least as part of my tracers that i've been really watching sex in the city. Ooh yeah i watched it. I think when. I first moved to new york thous the first time that i saw it. Which was when. I was twenty one. So it's been a while almost ten years now and it definitely has different a being older but it also like makes me miss new york. Even though i'm here so much. Yeah but just like seeing them. Do all of the things that i want to be doing going outdoors could going indoors going to bars like all these things. I just mostly. It's not even like the bars and the sex scenes. It's the like when they're eating at a restaurant. Endorse out a bakery. That's what i'm not. I know i know anytime there brunch. It just hurts. Yeah yeah so. I finished my rewatch got to the end. And now i'm gonna watch the movies which are famously terrible but matt and then i've also been watching rupaul's drag race. Uk which. I do have to watch with captions because they are unintelligible. Otherwise but i think i might actually like the uk version the season better. Wow so there's a of drag happening right now because both seasons are happening at once so i probably going to go. Watch that right after this What's your non. Tv chaser mine on tv chaser. I've got two real quick ones. One is sledding sledding as an adult. Still just as thrilling. As when you're going to. Because i'm in new hampshire and yesterday. There's this massive right by alex's family's house and then it goes into a second hill that is it's so steep that when you're going like it looks like a cliff like every single time. I was like but like in a fun way. I also is like this is the closest. I've gotten to being back on a roller coaster since last year. Which by the time this comes out it will have many years since we went to disneyland amazing. Yeah which was the last time i was truly happy. But yes so if you're an adult and you've you've had the urge to go sledding. Limoges telia do it. It's really fun and my other non. Tv chaser is that i got new glasses. Yes the audience must notice and must compliment. Because i now also have a new personality which is great for any of the people who reviewed our show and said get barry. Offer this shit. Well guess what new glasses new personality. So everyone wins and i am very pleased to have a a new pair of glasses in my rotation era. Amazing they're beautiful. Thank you so much. What about you. What's your on tv chaser. I i think. I might have used this as a chaser before. But hey if it works then keep doing it. But i have been a fan of making like very elaborate dessert. I like that. It is something i can do where i'm not looking at my phone or a screen and so the longer it the recipe is sometimes the better where it's like. I'm distracted for hours at a time. Can i go by this thing in a bakery for five dollars and save hours of my life absolutely. Is that fun absolutely. But i'm not going to do. I'm gonna make it myself and be proud of it. I've been making brioche. Oh i had some of your brioche in even though it was several days old it was still one of the best things i've ever eaten. It was so good. I don't know if i truly understood what brioche was before like. I've always heard that word. Used in restaurants like brioche french toast and i'm like okay just a fancy french toast and now i'm like okay. Now i understand brioche. Bread is baked with a shitload of butter in it and a shit load of eggs. So it's like super rich and amazing and you have to do at days in advance but it tastes so good and it's so worth it and this is who i am now. I wouldn't want you to be any other way that fit for today's show. Thank you for listening to unhappy. Our if you want even more unhappy our shit you can head straight to my patriot page.

Episode 7: Harchesca is Too Hot To Handle

"Hello everyone welcome to TV. Literate cast dedicated to watching trashy TV without shame or judgment. I'm Jillian and I'm Megan. Yay Yes still in quarantine stealing quarantine. I haven't left the vicinity of my house since March fifteenth. And What Day is April twenty? Four th now And I am losing my mind. But that's okay. Yeah I have a countdown APP now. The counting up to show how many days I've been inside. I I have been inside forty nine days. Eighteen hours thirty seven minutes and fifty two seconds. And there's no end in sight never a never ending. This is where we are now as fine. You know what I guess. It is very frustrating. I haven't extremely stir crazy but it could be worse at least there's net flicks. There's Hulu there's animal crossing there so much stuff to do now. So Dame's vote games all kinds of stuff so but I still. I miss scored a target breath Iraq. Yes and interacting with human beings other than And Oh yeah yeah you know most of the time. I don't really like to interact with people outside of the house but I probably will in the future once last assured that they're clean. I think that yeah. I think that this this change. Maybe I'll become an extrovert now. I know I'm GONNA be like look. I can't do my job from home. Please just let me work from home. Exactly just not having the option. That's really been messing with me this week. Yes I just want to be able to go to PETCO department dog food instead of ordering it online right I know. Yeah it's that's the worst part is like you. You have no option but to stay at home and do nothing like when you have responsibilities outside the house. It's nothing sounds better than staying home and doing nothing. But then when there's literally you can't do anything else it's like the worst possible thing like just missed like walking around homegoods. Us touching some pillows. Oh yeah just feel those blankets and billows pick up some trotskyists and decided not to buy them exactly. Yeah now I'm afraid to touch anything even in my own house even though I know that it's clean like no one's touched this coaster in a while but I'm still Lucia. Wash my hands. Yes exactly yes. She was real. Yeah Lord so Jillian. What have you been watching this week to take your mind off of things? What what's what's been going on in your life. I've been watching a lot of true crime. We're talking about this before we started recording that Heito true crime. I'm doing you know like the dateline podcast. I'm always watching datelines or we. We went to Dateline Secrets uncovered which is like the datelines with the followups. Oh which is cool but some of them are so annoying. Yeah it's there's a lot there's a lot of true crime out there and a lot of it is really bad. But that's it's still interesting to watch. I think you have the really bad ones. Yeah own that. Just been watching tick tock in the in the show. We're going to talk about today. But I did discover that Ryan Berg. Ara is now on Tick Tock. Oh that is great news. I haven't been on tick tock like at all this week. I don't know what I've been doing But now I'm GonNa go on like I either. An antique talk all day every day or I just don't watch it for a couple of days. I take a break but I really need to get on there. We'll have curated a solid list of things that you've missed over the past week or has all I could ask for such a supportive friend. What would I do without you not have funny videos for one thing? Yeah I mean. What's the point of life without funny dogs radios preach? That's the getting me through me to. What have you been watching too? I've been watching a lot of crime which we talked about I've also continued my rewatching teen mom two from last week. So that's been fun and I went back and watch some of the sixteen and pregnant episodes which have been depressing as you can imagine But yeah other than that We have both watched too hot to handle which likes to handle handle. Which is that flexes newest dating reality TV show competition and I think that we both probably have quite a lot of thoughts and feelings about the show. I know I do so many. I just stopped taking notes halfway through because I just was taking too many notes I think ended up. With like five pages like the first three episodes. Yay took a lot of notes to a lot of them. A lot of them are just like angry. I tried to like make a list of everyone so I saw that. I could start with that so we can put our feelings in order. So let's first start in like explain the show real quick explain premise of the show. I guess is that takes these really like hot sexy singles who are mostly really into like hooking up and sex and can't have decent relationships because they're so focused on the physical aspect of their relationship and so they go on this retreat and. I don't think they knew coming in. What the retreat was going to be like. Yeah I think they were auditioning for like a big brother type show right so they get there and twelve hours after they all get there and meet. It is told that they cannot have any type of sexual encounters with anyone in the house. And if they do they lose money from their pot of prize money which is one hundred thousand dollars to start with and there is an Alexa like computer thing. Launa listening to them in watching what they do. It's truly ridiculous. And they three some curve balls in there they kept it spicy. They did which who get into that. But let's talk about the the characters with our people because I'm sure we're going to have a lot of feelings about them. Yes so the first one out of the gate was Khloe from Essex I I think chloe is one of my favorites. She loved her but I was just like baby. You're okay you don't need to keep saying you're stupid. I felt so bad for her. There's even one would like one of the new cast mates came and she was like okay. Please nobody tell the new guy that I'm stupid and I was like that's so funny but you're not like everyone here is everyone will right now. Everyone I'm sure is trashed. Yes yes one hundred percent But I really liked her. I thought she was really funny and she was really sweet and I liked her a lot. She was like one of the only characters that I could tolerate on the show. Honestly Yeah No. I liked her to She really grow on me. I thought I wasn't GonNa Laker because e tail. You know she was the first out of the gate. Kinda was just like oh no it was great yes Next we have Sharon who has started out liking a lot but ended up disliking A. Yeah I I kind of wavered a lot on him throughout like I started liking ham and seems really cool but then he would say something and it's like Oh my God so yeah I have went back and forth with him. I mean just as quotes from the first episode it. He said he was a feminist and then he said that he went to school for Women and Gender Studies. So it's a blueprint pickup women alar and the thing. He was most proud of is his penis and he has a picture where he measures it next to an air freshener. Can I mean first of all what there's so much impact here? But what does the air freshener cancer like? It doesn't even I think because of the width. I think that was the intimation. Lord was that it was like a full like Lysol can yikes and to think that he brought those little white swim trunks to walk. Yeah really. He's brave there. Were also very wearing those tight pants. Yes I have many notes about the wardrobe choices on this show and how I think it was like a rule that every outfit that one of the women wore had to have boob cutouts and every single one of them or the Bikini had to show under boop every single time. Yeah they'll had to be under BOOB or it had to be loose enough that you could lose a boob exactly or both or both both goaltenders flying everywhere. Let him loose. Our next person is Haley from Florida. And just right. She was wearing those like crazy. Hippies seventies pants literally slightly see through and I was like what are her pants. Why are these happening? I see that I'm speechless about them. Like a fully trumped Khloe for me on ditz factor with the Tattoo thing one of her quotes from the first episode is Harry's from Australia which I have no idea where that even got. It killed me. That was so much she I could not stand her. She's her least favorites like she clearly just like loves the drama and likes to start Shit. I'm just not I don't have the time for that. Yeah yeah it seems like she was there initially in good faith and then like the second that something happened that she didn't like she immediately switched to like well. If I can't play with it you can't play with it either Taj. Yeah which was crazy and I love that. Her story was like. Oh go to Frat parties. Sigma Sigma Deltas. I Omega sorry. I don't know if I don't know anything about. She was just like nonchalantly telling that like a girl fell off the roof and broke her neck while she was there at the Party and she was just like you know ha ha funds times. It happens sometimes. Oh my gosh I was like. Oh no you're sociopath s so the next is David who's from the UK. I started out just from his interview and just from looking at him. I was like I'm GonNa hate this guy. I didn't end up hating him as my like. I thought he was okay. He didn't really use fine. Yeah I think the first episode felt a lot like he was putting up front to be like this cool British dude and then he was actually nice like a nice guy so I didn't have too many problems with them but he also wasn't super focused on. Maybe because he was a nice guy and this. There's You know this kind of trash person on the show. Yes one of my complaints about the show is that we got to like they focus so much on just a few of the people and most of the people that they focused on where like some of my least shaver people on the show and that was frustrating because towards the end. I felt like I didn't know some of the people like some of the cast members. We didn't hear from like at all except for to hear them react to Father Harry and Francesca. Which Brings Harry? Who's from Weensland Australia? We don't even know where I don't know where that is And Harry is like my least favorite type of person uh-huh and one hundred percent like just looking at him I was like I'm GonNa fucking eight this dude just the way. He looks the way he carries himself. Oh yeah no yeah holy shit the thing that I got me like apart from all of his other trash in the interview with he said. What's up you naughty little possum and like you cannot ruin possums for me no. That's not okay. Also why are you thinking? Possums are sexy. That's that is questionable for sure like I can kind of get people who think like cats or sex. Even though that still grows but like a cute possums are just like they lay down and scream atucha screaming potatoes. Which me yes. You're right now. I can relate can yeah. I could not stand Harry. He was one of my least favorite people on the show and he was one of the ones. They focused on so much and I just I could not by the end of episode eight. I was so happy that I would never have to fucking look at his little face again. Uh-huh uh-huh and same Franchesca who I say. Oh my God just. She's like the worst of the stereotype of Instagram influencers. Yes she's though. Kim Kardashian WanNa be like and she thinks that she is hot shit as smart and that hurt what drove me the most crazy about her in front. Francesca Harry is that they kept repeatedly breaking the rules and then they would get mad at the other people for being frustrated with it when they are literally losing them. Money and Francesca was like. It's thirty two thousand dollars. That's not that much like I. It's worth thirty two thousand dollars to have sex with Harry. And it's like that is the most elitist thing ever heard in my life. Yeah I went down a rabbit hole. Birlik a year ago of how much money can make on. Instagram has an influence her. And so people who have like a million followers can make like two hundred. Grand opposed yeah. It's post insane. How much money you can make on instagram? Like she is loaded. Yes yeah which is just crazy. Yeah she got. She hated her yahoo with so much she drove me fucking nuts. She was so mean to everybody. Played with everybody is like emotions. It's like I don't know I don't know she's the worst yet. In Harry are the worst and of course they are into each other make sense. They deserve each other. Yeah that's good that don't want to put that on anybody else exactly. Don't need to expose anybody else to that. So our next one is our religious experience. Jesus from Colorado. I hated him from the moment. He stepped on dealer Shell. He's your seemed very like sanctimonious and are they don't all. I just like a clock them because I like the second came on the scene I was like oh no he's from Colorado. That's not gonNA look good 'cause like I grew up in Colorado and I knew all of these exact matthew. Jesus they're just like. Oh you know once made a Bob Marley biography and that means I need to spread my seed near like no. You are a white man. You're the call and I never mind I'm just like Oh there's another sitting think deep things and you're like yeah you're deep things basically ten guy like what did you do with the center of Cheerios. Wow I have to admit I took a Buzzfeed Quiz on what cast member your most like and I got matthew so sorry. That's okay I mean I guess it could be worse like he was really fucking annoying but he's not the worst one in the how hill Franchesca. Yes exact- I would literally have had to like really reevaluate all of my life choices. If I got Francesco I would have had to take the test again. I'M GONNA have to take that test though I'll send it to you. Hell Ya but yeah he on Paper Matthew. Theoretically sounds like a good dude. The store owner until Being Dude but really it's trash man. Yeah trash man and he got like so predictable. Trashy of just he was fine. He's like oems deep thinker. Whatever Lola and then he just goes straight into like really sexist bullshit classic what can I say? They can't hold back and they nope all right so the next person is Rhonda who is from Georgia. I really liked Rhonda Rhonda. She seemed to really have a really good head on her shoulders. And she seemed to take this all very seriously from the beginning and really WANNA come out with a strong connection with somebody So yeah I really liked Rhonda. She was another one of my favorites. Yeah alone terror Her interview on the first episode. I was a little lukewarm on her. Because she's like myself at ten attend but then I'm like. Oh Okay. That's all right. I mean that's fine. Everyone else tonight girl. You got it. Go for it. Because she seemed really. I liked her a lot so next one is Nicole from Ireland unlocked. Her little accent I loved. I loved hearing her. Say FEC post so good. Oh Man but she was another one like. I really didn't feel like we got to know her at all. Like she was only ever reacting to what everybody else was doing it was about her and about her relationship issues and who she was forming connections within the house. So I just didn't really feel a lot of connection door. Yeah I think generally lighter and yet generally liked her because I think she took stuff seriously because she would only occasionally get dragged into the drama right but would mostly just be like participating in the show Bari in the whatever else they were doing like. Yeah I definitely like saying all those things. That's actually a good character thing if I go out of this show and I'm like yeah didn't really leave an impression. That's a good thing God. I liked the liked her. She was yeah she was she was good. Okay and then finally of the of the first bunch. We have kells from London. Low Tim. I liked him too. I think he got. I felt bad for him. Because he got kind of sucked into Francesco. Just wanting to be immune to Harry and then he caught feelings and he was like pretty upset the whole rest of the time but yeah. I liked him. I loved how you wrote this in your note. But he and his little interview he was talking about how he hasn't an Lion Tattoo and he got the Lion Tattoo because he's an Alpha male and then he says and also the Lion King is my favorite movie hung all God. He was so cute like I understand him as well in the same way. I understand Matthew. I know this man is just like putting up. It's hard front. He's like but really. I could just hang out with Simone Puma all day for Real I love lion takes my favorite Disney movie so I feel that completely. That's fair really thought about my favorite Disney movie is yeah. I'm not like a like I like Disney. I'm not a huge Disney person but I always loved. So you're you're wearing your mickey mouse years right now. I don't know I liked CAL's followed him on instagram. His just very cute. He's really cute. I always love him He here okay. So those are all the people that the show started out with and I want to talk about a little bit so this show really reminded me a lot of the circle And a lot of ways because one it and Co involved the Alexa Lana thing and the circle was kind of the same thing and also this show. I feel like like the circle felt very experimental like they had really no idea what they were doing. And I feel like they kept adding people and adding twists and it just. It never really seemed like an organized process to me like they were just kind of throw it just. I never really got the point of it. All like what was supposed to be the end goal like I understand. It was like form real realistic relationships without you know incorporating those physical aspect but I don't I don't I don't know I think the thing that made me feel. The most that way was that there was the prize money but we had no idea like who were how a winner was going to be picked xactly and I think that they didn't know and yeah they're like let's just see how it goes and I don't really care for that I also didn't really like like so. We were told. At the beginning that the prizes one hundred thousand dollars for every infraction they would get money deducted and whatever I guess. They didn't really ever introduce the fact that the money might not go to everyone until like the very last episode. You know what I mean like. That was never talked about and I. I don't know it's like what's the point of that. All THAT SPECULATION. And all that stuff if it's just gonNA end up going to everyone in the end. I don't yeah. Maybe they're just added that in yet. It just felt like all the way up until the cows in Matthew. We're like the accountants and keeping track of the money because they didn't always everyone money so I was always under the assumption that the money goes to everyone and I think it was really weird and like they just wanted to add something extra drama at the end that they were introduced the fact that. Oh maybe it's not going to everyone. I don't know it just kind of annoyed me and I feel like that just took away from the whole point of the thing you know. Yeah also why wasn't there any type of reunion or anything? I even like Google it to see if it's coming on and there's nothing like there's no reunion it's like why are we supposed to know that this experiment helps them at all if we're not going to touch base with them after it's like what Graham looking at all of them because I was like? Are they with each other like no idea? Probably I'd like a closure. They couldn't say anything. And after I was trying to seek as the two couples that really came out of this were Harry and Francesca and Sean and Rhonda. Where the two that like really like imply that they were wanting a serious relationship and I tried to look up both and it seemed like there were clues that both of them are still together but they weren't allowed to say anything and so yeah. It was really hard to find any information on like their lives after the show and that to me is a really big problem because this whole thing was an experiment to see if they could change how their relationships were formed and was the point in an experiment. If you're not gonNA get the fuck and results yeah let's see It says they are not together. They haven't seen each other since filming the show hit. Which ones should Ron and Rhonda? Okay Francesca and Harry are still going. Strong of course Well like I said they deserve each other so dear to get other people exactly. Yeah and yeah and and like the Circle. They added some people. Let's see I have Leno. Okay episode. Three they had bryce come in. Hook Hers Up. He was ice started out really hating him and I still he. He's not the type of person I would like but I did enjoy watching him on the show a lot. Just the right level of like didn't care about the process but still wasn't ruining it for everyone else was just like he was like the gym character. Just look at the camera. Yes exactly so and that was an episode of three and so. I feel like that was there was still five episodes left so there is enough time to kind of get to know so. I didn't. I was annoyed but not super annoyed because I was really annoyed in the circle when they kept introducing New People and then we wouldn't get yelled at all they'd been immediately kicked off but then in episode six they added three New People so episode. Six of eight. They added three New People. They added Korey Lydia and Madison. And I don't know anything about any of those three people I think that happened. Because they had haley bail and matthew bail and they were like shit. We only have like five people here. Yeah maybe but I guess. I don't know Yeah Haley. It seemed like she got. She got kicked out or supposedly because her and Francesco decided to kiss and lose money for everyone and then like for some reason golf that they weren't GonNa be like outed as the people who did in like what the fuck and then then she was just like a complete bitch about the whole thing and like actively did not want people to be making relationships and making money and so they were just like you can leave which. I was so glad that they kicked her off. Yeah but then Matthew quit and I don't really understand like why did he he? He felt that he was already beyond this plane. So we couldn't just like chill out for a couple more weeks and Wednesday money. Apparently not okay. Well whatever but yeah it just drove me crazy that they added people in in the sixth episode. And then I just feel like I didn't get to know any of those people and none of those people got to really get the same experience because they came in already on established relationships and people kind of having things with other people so I just don't think that that is fair and I just don't think it was. It added anything to the show except confusion. Yeah Yeah I think they could have put in lake one new girl or something to like. Yeah as the relationships but three people at once and none of them were any good ahead of them were that I think this would have been a much better show if they had had eliminations every week. Like big brother. Yeah I agree. I agree who hasn't grown who hasn't formed real connections. Who HAS LOST MOST MONEY? Gray in this this and that like yes. I think that would make it much better because I know they probably didn't WanNa make it super competitive but with having the money aspect anyway like it's already going to be a little competitive and race dating and generalists competitor exactly. Yeah it is especially when you're all in one house and like multiple people are into the same person I agree at P. It's there should have been some type of elimination. I just felt like there was no real like structure of things like. They had workshops which I enjoyed watching workshops. I thought that they were kind of fun. But at the same time like they're just didn't really seem like there was much of a point to it. It got into felt like. Did you watch fleabag. I have not watched bag okay. Well there's this retrea in fleabag that they go to where the women are in silence the whole time and the men get to go and like yell at sex dolls dressed up as people as women that they resent and stuff and that felt like this. Show that idea. That was a joke and just like you know what it's like. You know smash of your posters or talk to your. Yoni so much. That was a lot One of the things that I really did like there was a couple of things that I liked about this show. I really liked it. They had contestants from all over the world and it wasn't just the American contestants. I just thought that that was cool. And it just diversified things a little bit although I think that might be one of the things that made them all night have future relationship. That's true that's true. What are supposed to do. That's the thing that apparently Rhonda Sharon said in one of their interviews that they gave us just because she lives in Atlanta and he lives in New Jersey and they moved to the other place. Yeah well she's a kid so she definitely can't move. Yeah that that is true. I just liked it from the perspective of watching it because it was interesting also another thing I really liked was the really funny commentary like the woman who is like narrating everything I forget I saw her name does Array Birch. Ooh I like that name. Oh Yeah I love her name and also she is. She says that she wants to host a different sexualities. In the next season I was actually going to bring that up and that I wish that they would have talked about that a little bit and like while I appreciated having for contestants from all over the world it wasn't like super diverse. Yeah but I mean for a first batch of that's never been done before like they did pretty good too. I think that that's something where they could improve and they probably. I'm glad to hear that they are looking that way but I thought it was really funny like her. Mary was really funny. I laughed out loud multiple times. That was like my favorite part of the whole show is listening inhaling Francesca. We're expecting to get away with it. She's like great acting skills. Good actors no one would know leave in the middle. Like they're not my gosh. She's she was. It was really that was I. If it weren't for that Mary Shit I don't know if I would have been able to make it through it and Yeah Yeah we like this new trend of having just a lady comedian voice over for these because it was the same thing in the circle because I mean one of the things that didn't like about a love is blind. I don't care about you Nicholas. I'm sorry he's from Cincinnati though Julian. How could you say that? She can do voice-overs but yeah. I really? I really appreciated that too and I was also how it was in one hundred people remember. We were talking about that and they had the same kind of narration which was really funny. That's like the planet earth thing. Yeah I'm here to shows I was GonNa say I think that the virtual guides like the law and the the those reality shows. I can't wait until like in the future. Those are going to look. They're gonNA look so dated so twenty twenty big. This is exactly. It's going to be amazing. I cannot wait for that. Yeah we'll come back to it in twenty years the LX. So another thing I wanted to talk about is an episode for. They introduced this idea of watches so they each got to watch and if they were talking to somebody and they connected the watch would light up green and they could kiss and would not be charged for it. I I liked that. I think because the two I the more immediate feedback exactly gave them feedback and then also I think one of the things I was concerned about is like with the relationship. Obviously the physical connection the sex all that stuff should not be like the priority the first thing but like the physical connection is important and so. I'm glad that they allow them to express it at least a little bit if they made that connection. I saw that that was that was one of the things that I liked. Best about the show. I thought that was a really good addition with a clicker training right. Exactly Oh you. You made progress. You said something that actually was your emotions and what you wanted and felt. Okay you get you get cable wits. Holy Shit Okay I have to talk about. Francesca and Harry in the very first episode. Okay I'm writing about a when he just threw her under that bus and was like oh she made the move on me and it's like we do video evidence of you being kissed me just kissing kissing. You just do it. Yeah that's my thing with these people as. They kept like lying about the things that they did did. They not know that they're being fucking filmed like glitter. Really anyone can go back and watch that it was not Francesca. It was you so you just are seeming like an asshole and once again putting your own self in front of before everybody else and not cute. That's a big slither in move. Yes it is. I'm a slither end so whoops but I wouldn't do that. That's why you're Matthew Matthew Slogan I mean I guess compared to the Harry's leather at I'll take it so yeah I don't know Harry was just misogynistic. And shitty the entire time. And Francesca like girl. You have this lake huge ego but then you have no self esteem and I don't know how that works like. Don't get back with him. Go hang out with Nice Dude Oh my Gosh Kells also like this is just personal preference but like either not find Harry attractive. Ask all like I think he's so goofy looking and like so basic white boy looking which is like not my thing tells us so much more attractive than Harry. Even Harry was talking. She was like when Hells Francesco. Were like hanging out and carry was like I don't know why she would go somebody who's so much less attractive than me and I'm like have you. Are you looking at the same person honey? He's just racist yeah. Exactly that's that's that's the bottom line. Coups Kells is categorically a beautiful man. He is anyway. I Hate Harry Carey I did like their pricing system. Hilariously like I thought it was. I thought it was GONNA be like. Oh they can steal kisses and it'll be like you know five hundred bucks like three thousand dollars for a perfect. They actually got the operate. Yeah I liked. I liked that. They really did like really punished when they got charged. Thirty two thousand dollars for Harry and Francesca's night in the suite or whatever which was dumb. What's the point? They're literally like they sleep together. Anyway there they share beds anyway just feels week of setting them up for failure. Exactly it's I don't know I don't I don't know now This is a minor point for the whole show is talked by this to you as I looked it up. Holy Shit resort. That they are at is on a private peninsula and to go there. One Room is twenty three hundred dollars a night. Yeah you I mean it was incredible place but like what the fuck. Where were they in Mexico? It's called lake a playa in our eat okay. I figured it was somewhere in Mexico around there. It looked like Mexico but I DID LEARN. This show made me learn the word. Palapa which I did not know so she said I was just like pull up. I was like what CA I. I the first time I heard I was like. I must have misheard because that was not a word that computer with me and but yeah. Palapa is like the. It's like the covered area flake. A step up from Cabana. Yeah exactly so yeah I mean I appreciate learning new vocabulary so that was good now. We're going to put that in her. Next novels exactly Thuc fucking hate Harry. Yes he was just a top Vance. Yeah and my thing with the show is it was it was basically like the Harry. And Francesca show the whole time like Sharon and Rhonda got some airtime because but then everyone else like. They didn't really get that much less. They were reacting to how much of a Dick Harry and Francesco. Were being kind of the same ISM. Love is blind where all those people at the beginning. What we saw in like new than just were never see disappeared. Chabrier session was a lot from. Yes it was. I wondered like what I just. I have no about that because I was like in the first or second episode. I think the second episode. Maybe anyway I just didn't really. It seems like I don't really understand what that had to do. With the goal of the show like it kind of feels like it should've been later to have done the lake individual man workshop individual lady workshop. Maybe like an everybody workshop and then a shabby workshop. It was weird that they just came out the back the they they just came out with that one. It was weird but I did. I thought that the individual workshops were really good but I didn't really. I didn't really get this one and I didn't really understand like how this was supposed to help them form relationships. Yeah like I get kind of what they're trying to do like it was just like doing trust falls or whatever like you are bequeathing. Trust to people but they've had no reason to trust them literally just met. Yeah so it feels like it should have been later. I agree I agree after its actual trust falls right. Can you imagine Harry would have let it ruin fucking fall? Oh you know you know it Harry and Hailey would have been standing there who. It's interesting that Corey Air. Sorry that Francesca and Harry are still together. Because I really did not have a lot of faith in that there were like talking about planning a wedding and stuff and it's like you guys have a lean countries it was just like that's a lot to be talking about when you guys have only known each other for a couple of weeks. Maybe they're angling to get on ninety day. Fiance I who I see. I've tried to decide if I want that or not. I don't think I don't really think I do either. It would be. I'm sure it would be entertaining. But it would probably infuriate me more than anything. Tlc We expect royalties if you do yes as it was our idea. You're welcome the crossover episode. We did not know we needed. Who God I don't know it was just like such a ridiculous show it was. I enjoyed it a lot but also stopped in the middle and didn't enjoy it as much this. It was kind of parts of it I enjoyed but I could only watch like two episodes at a time and then I had to stop because I was getting so annoyed with everyone and just wouldn't the whole thing I think that this show could be better but I really think that they need to kind of just tighten it up a little bit and have everyone start at the same time. Please stop doing this. I cannot stand it anymore And I don't know I just. I just think that it needed to be planned out a little bit more. Concrete -ly at advanced didn't it just seemed like they were just like let's these people in here and then we'll just like make shit up as we go. Yeah that's definitely a valid complaint about him. No I do like that. They took a risk We have been getting you know same shows over and over again pretty much. We're on like what season forty of survivor. Even though you love it and I came upon it. No don't ever touch me about survivor. I will not stop talking about it. But like I there's so many league knockoffs survivor knockoffs of big brother. Now definitely of real housewives and whatever so I'm always glad when they and try something weird i. This show reminded me a lot. Have you ever seen the show? Are you the one on MTV? Think I've seen an episode or two but I've never like actively watched it i. I've seen a couple of seasons I don't really I haven't watched any of the recent ones but it reminds me a lot of the show because very similar type of people. They're not forbidden from having sex or anything but basically they take like ten women and ten men and I think they actually had one season later on. That was like bisexual will. I don't know I didn't watch that one. I don't I can't speak to it but the ones that I did watch. They brought them and I guess they had like matchmakers like find these other people. These people's per perfect matches and they had to figure out which one of the house was perfect match And it's it's similar in a lot of ways so if you liked that I would recommend watching are you the one Speaking of MTV. Changing gears slightly. I discovered a couple months ago that they have. Mtv's next on Pluto TV. How no I I love next? I watched like two episodes of it and I forgot how cruel everyone was everyone. Holy Shit there were so cruel. But they're fully. Francesca in Harry level. Loom I loved next and have to watch I also. Did you ever watch room raiders on? Mtv I loved Room Raiders. So good this all of the MTV stuff is great. Oh yeah I mean cribs like just think if we'd had a podcast slash radio show then I know we could've talked about cribs every week. We talked about next. When you're the one at pet my ride era of that show. I loved that show. I thought it was a slow boat on your boat. Yeah we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA put a Hot Tub and your sedan like. Oh Wow. That's what I want Ed Flick. My Ford Explorer. Now now has a hug back. That's exciting and himmy. It was so much but man good times really the progenitor of a lot of this. What would we do without? Mtv where would we be as a society without MTV TERRIFYING DID NEITHER MTV? We really did all right so. Do you have any more thoughts on too hot to handle that? You wanted to talk about today. I wanted all of them to wear more sunscreen. Yeah 'cause they kept getting so sunburn that I was like all these people are GonNa get skin cancer. They should have like a Mug as they should have had like a producer like beyond Suntan lotion and duty and like hounding everyone to make sure that they put Suntan Lotion on at the appropriate time I wonder how much footage they actually have. Because they were there for a month and we only eight episodes yeah. I shudder to think of the things that we did not see. Oh God probably just mostly everybody like sleeping off all the alcohol. Yes yes. It's one thing I don't like about. These shows is how drunk everybody gets. Yeah but yeah. That's exactly how it is on. Are you the one too? So yeah it's like a it's disturbing to me. It just feels like especially 'cause like if you've seen any of the interviews with like a girls from the bachelor and saying that they just kept getting handed wine after mine and it's just like attic. It's clearly like the producers trying to get the drugs to start shed and it's crazy cringe e for sure and now that I know what all the producers look like Rick Kurkim from tobacco King. Oh even more disturbing. I understand now I get it. I see why things are the way they are Yeah no yeah. I think that's all I have to. I would be interested in a second season but like I said I think that they have some work to do but I mean it was the first season so you have to give them some leeway that things aren't always go as planned and they probably had to have backup plans they had to use so I'd watch a second season to see what it's like for sure. Oh yeah up me to do. We have any superlatives. This week. the only one. I can think of is the most annoying. And that is Harry. And Francesca together. Together Harry for Neri Frontier here Chaska.
