"Coach, I know you've been asked this question and we'll be asked with many more times and we'll get back to coach lesion in a second, but did you did you sense what we were about what we would later find out from Kirby smart during that period? Oh, there's no question about it. You know, like I said, I was a first time head coach and will came down and he was the defense of coordinator and you and you right away. I'll tell you will mud champs a phenomenal coach, one of the best I've ever been around and we had like $10,000 left in our budget and we did it the secondary coach. So we hired hired Kirby and you just could tell that he had the it factor as well. And after we'll left us to go to LSU after year one, we promoted Kirby with a stellar one year of experience in coach and football and he led us to the second ranked defense in the country and to the quarterfinals that year. So those guys were good coaches before they got to me and I'm awfully excited and proud of what they've done thus far. And their careers and especially this season. Coach, we're going to start calling Kirby smart a Chris hatcher disciple, not a Nick Saban, disciple. Don't do that. He'll get mad at me. So I had nothing to do with his success. Other than playing this year and giving him an easy 33 nothing win. Well, you were paid well for it though. We were paid pretty well. We were. It is helping pay the bills around here. We're talking to coach Chris atcher in the remembering coach leach and we've mentioned to so many times since yesterday morning about the number of coaches that that system helped produce. So what do you think there was about coach league that enabled so many people to learn? But even on the defensive side, you know, Dave Aranda and others. But primarily on the offensive side, we've listed the names, including yours, countless times, what was there about him that so many people like you were able to take from him and coach mommy and move it forward. Well, I think the obvious thing is just, you know, he's extremely intelligent guy. And of course, a very unique personality, if you will. But the biggest thing I don't know that everybody really comprehends is how genuine of a gag that he was. He always took the time to hear your story. He was fascinated by it. And then he took the time to help you learn and help you become a better football coach. You know, Sonny dykes and myself, we were graduate assistants that Kentucky had a little old house that we lived in and, you know, we'd sit at the office and coach leeches in his office and just listen to him for hours at a time, talk about everything other than football. But we learned an awful lot from him and he has a huge footprint in college football and I'll be forever grateful for the time that he spent with me. In fact, just last week, you know, we talked on the phone back in 1995 about us to state as a student coach and we actually went to Fargo North Dakota to play North Dakota state. He took about 30 minutes out of his time and we reminisced and of course he gave me a dissertation on how to go up there and what to do when I got there and but it was just devastating news, but just a great guy that always took interest in the young coaches and the players and made you feel very special. And let me close on that because we've heard so many stories from not only people that worked with them like you were played for him, but just common people off the street that had some interaction with him and some of us are still amazed at the stories. You saw it at an early age. What do you think there was about Mike Leeds that made him such an everyman? Well, just as curiosity, I think had a lot to do with it. You know, sometimes I think he got bored with just being quote a football coach. And you know, we always talk about that with our players, you know, you need to learn something new every day and sure enough he was all about learning new stuff and learning about people. Try being a GA four and who likes to go to bed early and having to driving back from football clinics and stopping at different places and him just talking to gas pumping gas or the custodian there cleaning up a convenience store for an hour at a time trying to get home and get some rest. So very curious gal always wanted to learn, but I think very genuine and won't to hear what other people, how their lives were and the stories that they had to get to the point they were in their lives. Chris hatcher who played quarterback for coach leach and later worked for him and forever a friend and disciple coach, thank you for making time for us so congratulations on an amazing season and we will talk to you again soon. Thank you so much for coming. Thank you, Paul. You bet. What an interesting story. In terms of that coaching tree, we will take a break. Much more to come right after this.

"You are listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. We're back. We'll talk to Chris hatcher in a couple of minutes who played for coach leitch and mummy at Valdosta state and now is the head coach at Sanford. University in Birmingham. Let's check out Kim in North Carolina. Hello, Kim. Hey, good afternoon. How you doing, pal? We are doing great. Thank you. Listen, I want a couple of weeks ago you were talking about you were a tennis safe player that didn't ever beat Alabama and they were very powerful. Nikki Marvin. It certainly was Mickey Marvin. You now die downstream. I did. I can't remember, I know it was a couple of years ago. Somebody called me and told me that and I was shocked to hear that. Did you know Mickey? Oh yeah, we played again against each other in high school. My senior year my sophomore year we won the state championship and that was their only lives. And your honor they won. And you were understand this, Kim. I mean, I was sitting there with Mickey in the locker room and Mickey, what, I mean, he was he a guard or a tackle, I can't remember. Guard, and he applied and failed for years. Oh, yeah. I mean, and he is a big guy. I mean, a monster is human being and he was sitting there. Thanks so much for calling. He was sitting there, he was sitting there with tears running down his cheeks, and he looked at me and he said, I'll never be able to tell my children. I beat Alabama and he just started bawling and I'm like going and it was really the first big story at the school newspaper and I described it. It was quite extraordinary for you to call it. I was so sorry to hear that Mickey had passed away. Chris hatcher. Joining us now, he had Sanford last weekend in the quarterfinals, after a stunningly great year in Birmingham, of course, the former quarterback at Valdosta and he also worked with coach leitch and coach mommy. At Kentucky, Chris thanks for joining us really appreciate your time. I know you've been asked about Mike leash over the last couple of days, but we really appreciate you making time for us. Well, first of all, appreciate you having me on the show, a big fan, always wanted to be on the show, unfortunately, it took this devastating use to make it happen. So maybe I can get back on one day and a more a little bit more cheerful move. Well, I hope so, coach, because you've done such a great job, I'm very familiar with your program or watching your game the other night, way out there in the Prairie. I know it was a really great season. But let me ask you, just let's start from the beginning. I think if I remember quickly, you predated coach leach at Valdosta. Tell us about your first meeting and interaction. Well, I went down to Valdosta state as a walk on Mike cabin, former great quarterback at universe, Georgia was our coach and we ran the a formation and he left to go to east Tennessee state after my freshman year and here come waltz in gab Morse, Hal mummy, and Mike leach, our volunteer coach was Dana holgerson and they said, hey, we're going to do this spread offense. And being a quarterback, I still thought they were crazy. For the type of offense, we were running. But once we got involved in it and started winning games and throwing the ball all over the place, it's all I ever wanted to do. And surely he was a great innovator and a very good friend of mine, even though we spent those three years as a player coach relationship. And from there, you matriculated with the group. Up to Lexington, you had some amazing success out there. I remember that guy. I think it was your first year, maybe one year, beating Alabama, never forget that game. I think it was an overtime too. In Lexington, describe for us how things changed because up there, it was the same, it was the same story, wasn't it? Well, it really was, you know, we got in and fortunately for us, there was a good quarterback there, Tim couch, and you know, one thing about coach mummy and coach leitch, you know, they believed in this system. And that belief carried over to our players. They brought a jolt of energy and excitement to the Kentucky team and the fan base there. And we ended up, you know, after a year one, we, of course, we beat Alabama and overtime, still have a piece of the goal post on what a monumental win, first time in 75 years, Kentucky had beaten Alabama at that point and the next year we find ourselves in the first New Year's Day bowl game at 50 years in the outback bowl versus Penn State. And then after that games, the game that coach leach ended up going to Oklahoma and ended up being the offensive coordinator there. So great memories and that success was duly related to how mommy and Mike leach. Coach, it just reminded me of a story. I wrote it. I think I read an article in the local Birmingham paper right before that Alabama game at Kentucky. And I was less than flattering about coach mummy. Let me put it mildly talking about his hair and his flamboyance and I said something like, you know, maybe if Hal mummy ever learned some humility, he'll be a successful coach and of course they won the game and our producer calls him on that Monday to be on our show and he said to tell Paul when he learned some humility, I'll be on his show. So it was just an amazing time that win catapulting Kentucky take us through I mean, was there ever a doubt for you coach that you wanted to go into this and do what you had learned from how mummy and Mike, of course, well, no, you know, we had such great success about us to stay. We went to the first ever playoff game in the history of that school, we take over a team at the university of Kentucky that had been down and all of a sudden you're selling out games and Mike and howler the talk of college football and having great success and at 26 years old. I got a call to go back and be the head coach at Valdosta state. Where I got to work with Kirby smart will muschamp and that's all I knew how to run quote the air raid offense. We talk about how simple it is. It's simple because I wasn't smart enough to do all the complex things that Mike wanted to do when he first got there. And I said, you know, we just run a few plays in one formation. I may be a little bit better at it. And so I claim that I'm really the reason the air raid is what it is today due to my ignorance and been able to learn offensive football.

"And 1 p.m. central time in starkville at the coliseum. So that's 2 p.m. Eastern Time. We'll have more details a little bit later. On how the program will be set up, but certainly. Some news on the moral service. We'll have more on it when we get it, and it's made available. Thank you for sharing, appreciate that the school sharing that information with us. Auggie is in New Orleans. Good afternoon. Good afternoon, Paul. And first of all, I want to say that the SEC network has done an absolutely great job. It was respectful. It was dignified and it gave us it was mournful. It was sorrowful, but it was also a laboratory. And I can't say it better than Jim said it. Jim really said it very eloquently. He says he can't find the words, but I think he did. And I think of all of the sports networks, I don't think anybody could have covered it like the SEC network did. First of all, I'm not sure any of the other networks would have covered it like the SEC network did. And I know it's trite, but the motto of the SEC it just means more. I think it really does. And I think that your show in particular was the centerpiece for the celebration, no doubt about it. It was covered under other sports shows, but like it or not, you may deny it, but it's absolutely true. You are the PR man for the SEC, whether that's in your job title or not. And you absolutely knock this out of the park in the way. You were respectful and dignified and devoted really, this is the third day to Mike leach. Now, speaking of Mike leach, we always talk about how quirky and kind of off the wall he is, but that was always joking. And I like Jim didn't know half the stuff about him that are heard. And he just seems like, you know, we had asked this question if you could go on a trip to, let's say, Europe with any of the coaches who would it be, we joke about coach O because he'd make us laugh, but leitch was definitely a guy that you'd want to be with because not only would he appreciate things, but I think he would be one of the guys. He would be somebody that you would really bond with. You get close to and just the way he treated normal average people spoke a lot his character. And I know you mentioned other coaches really feel self and grand and important and don't really have time for the common man. We can all speculate as to who we think those coaches are, but absolutely agree with you. I think a lot of folks do think a lot of themselves when they get into these positions and you always appreciate the people like Mike, who really understand their humanity and how they relate to other people. And I think that's one thing you're show did and I know we're moving on from the sorrow phase and looking into the future, but any at this point discussion about naming something at Mississippi state for coach leitch? Augie, I have not heard that. I feel certain that will happen. I mean, I think it would be surprising if it didn't happen. And I think the school today in some of the news that we are passing along was in it was in a particularly difficult spot. Normally, I think you would not have seen the news coming out like we did, but we are literally one week away from national signing day. And there's no time, you have to have some stability in a program as important as this program is. So, but I'm certain president Keenum and others there will find the right moment to honor coach leads to even beyond where we are right now. Cody is in Illinois. Good afternoon. Hey, Paul, thank you very much for taking my call. Thank you. I want to reiterate everything that all the colors have done. You guys have done a terrific job in honoring a great coach in a good man. Thank you. Thank you. I'm saying that. I'm a little history for your listeners. And they do know that coach leitch is from Cody Wyoming. And his last football game that he suited up in was to stay championship game against Laramie, the plane, and my grandfather was the head coach of the plainsman. Oh, wow. And he was, I think he was going for a 16th, 17 to 18 state championship and they lost. They lost to Cody Wyoming. And prior to that, my father was the head coach at Cody and Cody Wyoming. And so there's always been that relationship in terms of coach leach being from Wyoming. And that thing and he's a Wyoming guy and the hey Cody out of curiosity. What's the temperature like on a late November Friday night in Cody Wyoming? I don't know 'cause I didn't grow up in voting wounds. It couldn't be very nice. My father named me because I was his first high school job, but my father and coach leach kind of had the same path, my father went to law school and he told my wife, if you want me to be miserable all the time or do you want me to coach football and be happy? And so my father did the same thing. He was a high school coach. And I met coach leech one time in 2000 at the coaches convention in Atlanta and he was the same guy in 2000 as he is today and where he's at and have. So did you, I'm curious, did you go into coaching at all? I did go into coaching. I am in coaching right now. Okay. Yeah. I assume. I don't know why that was a hard deduction on my part. Grandfather, father, son. Yes, and but I've always had this thing from coach leech, everything he's done for football. He's changed the game. He's genuine. He's pure. I've had a friend that's worked with him before. And what you guys have done to memorialize him and a lot of people don't know who he is, but he's as good as there are in this profession. And this profession, there's a lot of characters in it, but he's one of the good guys and what you guys have done on your network the last couple of days has been unbelievable. That means a great deal. Well, thank you for sharing your story with us, Cody, be well. Thanks so much. That's a very interesting story there. Let's check in with Joseph in Mississippi. Good afternoon. Good afternoon, mister Paul. Thanks for taking my call. Thank you. Hey, welcome. Thank you. I just want to know, remember, I guess a couple of days ago that there was a little snippet on the channel that showed where coach leach when he was at Washington state had decided to him and one of his colleagues decided to teach a class and they didn't think they would get that many people were in there. It was football and also in war. And ended up being like, I don't know, 600 and 20,000 to one to sign up for. So they made everybody write essays to be able to who is going to be able to take this class, which it didn't even have a credit was loud, but I just think he was such an intriguing interesting person. Now where is the other got to met him? Because that would have been awesome. I thought I'd been able to be in the Joseph. He really was all that and you write about that. That was a story that ran a couple of years ago by gene mojo housekeep. Thank you for calling. Appreciate it. Jack is in Kentucky. Hey Jack. Enjoy your show. First time caller. Thank you. I just wanted to give my leads and how many credit for the air raid we had a quarterback named Tim catcher, if you remember? I'm sure. I know, Tim. Well, he went on to play for the Cleveland Browns after that. So you got to get my credit for opening up modern day football. What's the number one draft pick the Yuri came out? Right. Well, Mike, the vote of those place for him and.

"Hey, welcome back, checking out the show live certainly the tributes continue to come in for my as there is news coming out of starkville about what could happen next in relation to the coaching search. Many media reports, including Pete Samuels reporting at this hour that defensive coordinator Zach arnett will end up becoming the school's next permanent head football coach. He is expected to receive a four year contract. He has been the defensive coordinator there, dellinger reporting that Mississippi searched for a permanent athletic director. Remember, John Cohn left 7 weeks ago to go to auburn, that has now been delayed final interviews were expected this week. There had been some people wondering about that as a prelude to looking for coach leeches successor that is now taking a different turn. Let's move along and check in with Susie, who is in Georgia. Hello, Susie. Hello, Paul. Can you hear me? I can. You sound great. Thank you. Good. I turned my TV off. Just in case. Wonderful. That would interfere. Turn it back on afterwards. Why do I DVR your show? Okay. No, no, I watch it every day. I'm a 74 year old widow, retired teacher. And grace and Georgia, and I watch you literally every single day for four hours. You really impact me, but today I really stuck through and kept calling back and calling back because I watched the SEC channel. So I watched Monday when, you know, that tough day. I thought my place and then yesterday, when I heard he passed, I just turned on the SEC channel in the morning and watched all day. Just everything through you and even after your show after 7. And I just want to thank the networks, I want to thank you and your staff, what was put together, my daughter graduated from the university of Tennessee, all my money went there from Georgia, but I did not know about Mike Lee's the coach other than he was the coach of Mississippi state. And I am so touched by this man. The humanitarian man, Mike Lee, certainly all you talked about with his coaching and that's so interesting, but what struck me all they were the stories. The wonderful stories from people like me, I've never got to meet him, but that he touched. And this is what life is truly out, you know? You learn wisdom as you get older. And Mike leitch was just one of a kind. And I just wanted to thank you for all that you did for people like me yesterday to get to know my fleets. In fact, I got on last night in order Geronimo. That's wonderful. His book. So it's just a pleasure to talk to you. I watch you during game day. I'm just, you know, an old lady that loves college football. This is love my balls. I want you to know something. What you've said is so meaningful to everyone here because there are just countless people over the last couple of days who work behind the scenes and made what we do in front of the camera, a snap. But that means a great deal that you would be as loyal and devoted and I hope we hope you have a great holiday. Did you still have family anywhere near? Well, I have my son that still lives with me and then I have my daughter and national Tennessee with her husband who graduated also from the university of Tennessee. They live in Nashville and have 8 month old grandson Jack. Oh, wow, that's great. And that would be my first grandchild. I got a couple grandchildren. God grandchildren, Alex Sophia and Jude from my best friend who passed away 9 and a half years ago. And her family is my family. So it's going to be a wonderful holiday with both the Evans and the la viola family together. Sharing our gifts and my heart just goes out to Mike bleach's family and his grandchildren, you know, this time of year is tough anyway, but he's so young. I lost my husband. He was 64. And I was, I was 61, from lung cancer, 13 and a half years ago. And so I have a wonderful life though now. I found someone from high school that we knew each other during high school and we connected and he's in Michigan and we've been together for four and a half years long distance, but just like I lived through that with my mom when she lost my dad at a young age and I find that so interesting that you would be able to reconnect with someone like that. And I'm so pleased for you and I know that has to be a small comfort, obviously. Well, it does. He was my, he was my boyfriend and high school's best friend. Oh, wow. And I know I'm sounding like a busy, I know I'm sounding like a really busy body here, but I'm really curious. His wife was a good friend of mine. So I mean, obviously you went through the morning for your husband. How did you guys reconnect? His 50th high school reunion. I went back to it. I graduated a year before he did. So Robin the cradle here. And we connected there and his wife had passed away several years before that. She had front noble dimension, dimension. And he took care of her for 15 years. Oh, my goodness. It's a wonderful man. Just that truly tells you about his soul, his spirit, his faith. And we just got together and we just, you know, like 9 months later. He called and we talked and I went up to Michigan and from there on. The long distance. Yeah, this has a hallmark series written all over it. Oh God, and yeah, my family's list, I'm sure they can't believe her even talking to me. And they probably know that I have tears in my eyes because you just bring me such joy every day. I just, you know, you are part of my life and have been on TV, but yesterday was truly, truly. And I think, like you said, what struck me as yes, you talked to the people, but it's what had to be done to put everything together so perfectly. And so honestly, this man was so intelligent. He was just and I loved I loved it because he was spontaneous. I loved how he would love to get off topic because my family will tell you that's me, you know? I've noticed that in the last couple of minutes here. Oh my God. It's just a real honor, Paul. To talk with you and just to convey, thank you. I hope you, I hope your staff have a wonderful wonderful holiday and just continue to do what you do for us out here because we are listening. Susie, this phone call is meant the world. I've had a great time talking to you and you'd be well have a wonderful Christmas and don't be a stranger. Okay. I can relate to that. I can say that to, hey, thank you, Susie. Wow. Thank you, Paul. God bless you. God bless you. What a great call. Was I being too much of a busybody there? I'm just curious. There are a lot of people out there, and I lived through it with a mom. Who lost her husband when she was 44 years old. And there's so many other people that go through that. And I know there are a lot of techniques today and social media platforms, but she just the high school reunion is the key. Anyway, we're going to take a break here because otherwise I'm going to get more trouble. We'll have some news on the Mike leech public memorial when we come back. You are listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. So we have some news now on the memorial. It's Tuesday, December 20th.

"You know, hire a coach day one. But the more philosophical side of me says, you know, you had to kind of go through that struggle, so I wouldn't change a whole lot. Because now where I am and I'm continuing on the journey, I just appreciate it that much more when I wasn't good at communication. When I wasn't good at encouraging, when I, when I didn't have all those skills. So now, when I look at myself, today, versus where I was, you know, just go back ten years, ten years, ten years. I mean, I've just grown so much as a person. So I wouldn't change a whole lot because that's my story, and it just becomes that much more powerful, you know, looking back. And ten years from now, in 20 years from now, I'll look back and say, oh, what a fool you were. New perspective, right? it changes. I wouldn't change a whole lot. I mean, it's just part of part of the journey. You know, I sure enjoy working with you, Steve. I consider you a very coachable client. I don't know if I've ever shared that with you about share it now. Do you recognize that you're very coachable? Yes. I'm married. Well, that would be a clue. Happily and Teresa and I will celebrate our 40th anniversary. This coming August. So I get it. But yeah, you are actually very coachable. And I enjoy that quality in a client. Because it allows me to do my best work. Yeah, it's been amazing. I tell you the a.m. huddle in just a small tweaks, you know, and everything, you know, everything that we've done has just been small tweaks and they've made big changes like today. Stacey, who was leading a.m. huddle this morning an hour, this close to 500 reviews, and they're just all excited, and I like winning. And if you think about metaphorically, small hinges can move really big doors. And it's just really small, small, small. Well, really hard. Our exercise has been very much fine tuning, because you came to me as a client with a very, very successful practice, but you also embrace a mindset like myself, where you simply want to be better tomorrow than you are today. And so it's been very much an exercise in fine tunings, but Steve, I know that you enjoy playing golf like I do. And I think if you looked at my golf swing and who do you like today on tour? Just name someone that you like to follow on to or that you think's got a pretty decent game. Give me a name. I love Jordan Spieth. I love George. He's been dry. I just love his character. Yeah, Jordan's. He's on the verge of a really good year. But if you look at my golf swing and you look at Jordan's beast gull swing, they're not radically different, but he's doing a whole bunch of little things that is producing a much better result that I'm getting. On Michael on the golf course. And it's really it's the power of those incremental changes. You know, we did something really fun in your practice with some coaching on with your team on inbound calls. On how phone calls coming into your practice. And I would say that your team had a really good foundation. But we made some minor tweaks to those when your team that are on the phones, they would get an inbound call from a potential new patient and I feel like the improvement was geometric in terms of the result by making some tweaks a minor minor tweaks. Yeah, small, small, small hinges moved really big doors. I love that analogy. Well, hey, we're at a good point to just kind of bring this tyre ribbon on it. Steve, I want to take a minute and say thanks to you. Thank you for sharing your story. It's very inspirational. We didn't talk a lot, but maybe we'll have you back another time and have you talk a little bit about leadership, but do you do a tremendous job of recognizing and leading your team? And I want to give you that compliment because it shows in your retention. It shows your ability to attract and keep quality team members. But you do a great job in expressing gratitude to them and in recognizing your team members and in providing the leadership that they all want. So yeah, I want to say thanks for coming on the podcast. Thanks for sharing your journey with us. And hey, thanks for your friendship. And I appreciate our interaction both professionally and personally. Thank you. Thank you, Gary. Thank you. I also want to take a minute and thank our listeners. We love what we do at the thriving dentist show, but we couldn't do it without you. There's one thing you could do to help us. If you haven't done it already, jump on iTunes and write us a review. That'll help more Dennis find us. On that note, let me simply thank you for the privilege of your time and tell you we'll look forward to connecting with you on the next thriving nation.

It was a minute twenty and absolutely no players before what will first of all why the extent of it that was too. Yeah that's it like a balancing there's usually interviews the whole thing. Why would you even put them on there. Just knock them off the list for the year. Take them up. Eight is uncertain. Or and if you're going to announce them as eighteenth or you do. Is you just say number eighteen. Show watson then you move on how about if you want so awkward. But why wouldn't you simply do this number. Eighteen to shawn watson. Give your analysis do it all and at the end say not sure what is situated just off the list and put an and then at the end to say well a guy who would made this list but didn't was shawn watson because of what's going on in houston and you don't need to go through a minute twenty of this. Everything was obviously a very awkward. But at least he's top twenty. But i'm not sure that's the introduction. He wanted him to the top twenty. No probably not how on the field never question everything else is. Well yeah. I mean it's true but i can't believe that the nfl at somebody's sitting there and approve doing that.

"Communication skills feedback accountability. Some of those soft skills that we like to teach at our company. But things that i wanna put on the table for anybody starting a business anybody. Running a business is that the job of the owner is to ensure or the leaders in general is to ensure that you're all moving in the right direction that people are able to be better. That doesn't mean for instance. That i should be the best chef in our company just because we have a kitchen at the same time that shouldn't negate the involvement the belief the engagement of our chef. Because i'm not a better chef than they are like. It's it's something that i think is easily in the human mind overlooked right. You have a circular toxic death loop on right. Which is. I was treated. Poorly as an employee i also had a boss who never showed up therefore i talked a lot of shit about the boss. I'm working really hard. What the fuck is the boss doing And you know. There's two different kinds of bosses in that category. There's the boss who was probably three. There's a boss who really doesn't give a shit it's completely checked out and has no influence is not even setting the tone for the company. Just complete like rhinos. He's in the wind. Where the fuck is a. I almost those like in my mind like the restaurant investor. Who's like here's all the money you get a restaurant. But i'm in charge. Then there's the boss who cares but he's not sure what they need to do to set the tone so there may be the new boss there floundering. They're not really good at connecting the dots. And then there's other bosses you know there. He's activated maybe. Sometimes he's a little overly involved if you go back to these quote unquote bad bosses right. I had a bad boss. He was never there so now. I'm going to be the boss. So i'm always going to be there. Yeah i'm gonna be doing everything in everything i do. It's going to be the best. Hold him accountable. Every yeah every job at my company people are going to look up to me and say you know what chris does that real. Good all real nice with that shit. I'm gonna. I'm gonna bring it chris. It's completely not feasible nor should it be. I mean if you if you have a organization. It's complex you. Should understand how all the pieces work right. You're not going to run a coffee shop. Have no idea how suppressive works. Hatcher baseline stuff has to happen. Yeah baseline you need to have some working knowledge of the industry that you're going into it's going to be really rough or you better know someone who does really really reality better be on your leadership your back guess team too but that that toxic mindset where that almost guilt forms from it's kind of it's kind of neat to as an employee be able to detach and look at like okay. What am i actually upset at my boss. Four like what. Am i mad about roy. Really and that disconnect yourself enough and trying to see things from the other person's point of view and saying like okay. My boss isn't here every day. My boss maybe is not even the best barista or the best chef or the best whatever that could be because he doesn't give a fuck about anything that could be because he's doing these other things that allow this thing that we have to thrive get ready. If you're selling a restaurant and you're a single business owner will have to happen because for every you know input and output that you see there's a system that supports that input and output right. Most people think about those systems in the base level. Like oh cool. My boss does payroll. He pays rent. He fixes shit. That goes wrong which those in themselves are not super easy new business owners. Say a lot of fucking time and they're having to the bank being on the phone just for that. Yeah and then there's all the other intangibles that go come along with setting up the culture of the business that doesn't necessarily have to do with being on the floor. It's like all these moving parts like. We were doing job descriptions this week right so writing job. Descriptions like that's one aspect of it the second aspect of bringing in is someone who can filter out resumes. Hr person super thankful. That's something that we had to grow into. Third part of that is calling people back so in our system we can kind of guy the vision and say okay. Cool job description should look like this. It should be spiring. It should be engaging it should be fun and interesting and our hr person can say okay cool. Yeah that's awesome. We're going to make that happen. They can take that posted to need posted to facebook marketplace posted to wherever it needs to go posted to our website. Did you to the web dude. To put that up on the website they can bring in resumes. They can filter through all those resumes. They can take relevant resumes and off to the team leaders who are looking to hire in those departments and then the team leaders can call when a new business. That whole situation happens with one person and that's the boss the owners of the business. They're doing every aspect of that so we have our team leaders because we are having a little bit of a labour crunch saying hey it's been really challenging to get people in it actually takes so much fucking time to hire people.

Maybe i feel like they're part of the experience. of course. not every gallery will do that because of a cost and time but do you think about all those things. I imagine that you do renders budgets. Yes dependence on on the exhibition. Sometimes when curated there is a motassedeq team Team of workers can choose the color of the. I can get things bill that had the extra walls built to divide the rhythms different ways. That's been tastic but very offering. It's low budget. I have to work myself.

That had been touring so you have to think of how this is going to be packed transported end that i will not be present at each place to open it and put it up together so you have to thank smart so each gallery will actually manage to display right and some of the challenges there is also that of course this each gallery has different space in different size in you have to make it fit for all of them but i actually like all kinds of practical challenges like that. They have to figure out if you come up with something really really smart and is and they also have different skill levels in installation abilities as well too. Yeah i know.

Not based upon those Children who have them most needs and how to serve those needs but rank the Children pay someone how much money they're going to bring it to the state. All about the money in his office at the University of Baltimore Law School. Hatcher's collected stacks of the state proposals and contract he read from one proposal where Maximus of lists the money it's found and the states it's helped, including. Alaska, California, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska. Rasca, New York. Maryland, South Carolina and with Scott, at least 15 States or county agencies have signed these contracts now or in the past with consulting groups in Iowa. 42,888,000 and revenue was generated. Maximus in these documents, says 15 to 20% of foster youth are eligible for Social Security benefits. Probably no more than 10% get signed up, which is why these consulting companies can play a role. Still, it's a small part of child welfare funding that yours about 1%. That's not a huge impact to the state foster care agencies but to the kids.

The CDC Doesn't Know Enough About Coronavirus In Tribal Nations
"In August more than five months into the pandemic Jordan. Bennett. was about to see some data she'd waiting for for a long time. Yeah. No a truly I was really excited because there hasn't been any data on American Indians or Alaska natives since the start of the pandemic from the CDC that's right. Until last month while universities had released a good bit of data about Covid and its effect on some. Native, American and Alaskan natives. The CDC really hadn't Jordan would know she's a reporter and editor with the Public Media News organization Indian country today she's also a citizen of the Navajo nation and she's been covering the pandemic since the beginning as well as a twenty twenty census and all of Indian, country no big deal just all of Indian country Yeah. The whole. That data that she'd been waiting to? was released by the government as part of a weekly CDC report in mid August the title of the top red. COVID nineteen among American Indian and Alaska Native Persons in twenty three states and when i read it, it was Kinda already something that I knew and a lot of native public health experts already knew and what I was really looking for is you know what is new that they gave to us the report said because of existing inequities, native Americans and Alaskan natives are three point five times more likely to get the corona virus than white people but anyone who'd been looking at tribal nations as closely as Jordan had could have told you that they were. Being hit especially hard for example, at one point earlier this year, the Navajo nation, which spans parts of Arizona New Mexico and Utah The nation's now reporting nearly four thousand in nineteen cases in a population of one hundred, seventy, five thousand had an infection rate greater the New York State. Eight PM curfews on weekdays and on weekends a fifty seven hour lockdown, not even the gas stations are open. That was just one tribal nation that got a lot of attention. Many others had infection rates that were also higher than the hard hit states in the northeast like the Colorado River Indian tribes in Arizona and California the Yakima in Washington state or the White Mountain Apache tribe in Arizona. And data from the states where many of those reservations are located weren't included in the CDC report, which gets it a larger problem. If there's data had you know where the impact is, how do you know where you could send testing to where there's a lack testing? You have to have that data in order to create policies into also figured out how to distribute vaccines. This episode was the CDC does and doesn't know about Covid in native American and Alaskan. Native tribal nations and how Jordan is working to get more data to the people who need it most I mattie Safai and you're listening to shortwave from NPR. This report from the CDC which linked to in our episode notes does say two important things. The fact that native Americans and Alaskan natives are more likely to get the virus. That's one. The second thing is that compared to white people young folks in those communities people under eighteen tested positive at higher rates. When it comes to these findings, the CDC did make one thing clear. Here's one of the researchers on the study, Sarah Hatcher it really important that the. This disproportionate impact. Likely driven by versus stinks social and economic inequity not because of some biological or genetic. Persisting social and economic inequities we're talking about access to healthy food housing income levels, stuff like that. Here's Jordan again the and other just like public health infrastructure or in like the lack of investment in the public health infrastructures in native communities and you have over credit households, anders a number of inequities that this pandemic is bringing out. More on that in a bit. But first Jordan says that the CDC report is notable for what it does not include this report did leave out tons of cases right now it only looked at twenty three states and it didn't include Arizona. Is One of the hot spots in Indian country. And they account for at least a third of all the cove nineteen cases according to the report. They also left out states like Oklahoma Washington. California Colorado thousands and thousands of cases. And researchers from the CDC were up front about leaving all that data out. Here's Sara Hatcher. Again, our announcement is really not generalize beyond those twenty three state overall. And we're not really able to speculate whether we expect the overall rate to be higher or lower we. The reason some states got left out was because the they recorded about race and ethnicity including that for native, American, and Alaskan Native Cova Cases was incomplete and that was really at least surprising to me because. I like how can you not capture this data right here you have Arizona where you know again, the Salt River Pima, Maricopa Indian community Healer River, ending community, White Mountain Apache their cases are thousands You had the tone, nation and Navajo Nation and the possibly Yawkey tribe. There's just thousands of cases in this one St. So many gaps like in this data as well. I think just points to how the CDC doesn't really know tribal communities and know that Indian health system and how it's built instead up. So, let's talk about that. Now. It's much more complicated than this. But basically, when tribal nation signed treaties giving up their land, the federal government promised to provide them with healthcare and set up the Indian Health Service, a government funded network of hospitals and clinics. To deliver adequate healthcare to tribal nations but that's not what's happening right now and what the pandemic is very much highlighting. For years the IHS has been way underfunded per person the federal government spends about half the amount of money on the IHS. Medicaid. And that's part of the reason a lot of tribes over time have step to establish their own privately run tribal health clinics. So throw history. They all IHS. But then tribes wanted to you know take hold and own and operate their own healthcare. So that's how these tribal health clinics came about. At this point, the large majority of healthcare facilities are operated by tribes about eighty percent in those facilities are encouraged but not required to share data that they collect on the virus but Jordan says, that's something a lot of them do not want to do not with the federal government or even with reporters like her even now as a Navajo WOM-. In as a Navajo reporter, it's also difficult for me to try to get the data. Because then I understand that like I grew up around my background is in health and so I I know you know it's because of settler colonialism but also research to a lot of times and medical research you have researchers going in parachuting in parachuting out and they don't give back that data it at least from everything that I've seen the past several months trust is like the main factor in this That's one thing trust. There's also the reality that doctors can get race or ethnicity wrong in California where it's pretty prevalent from what sources tell me some doctors will just check a box on native people because of their surname, their surnames, more likely to be coming from like a Hispanic or line next or origin like Dominguez or Garcia or you know today's assumed there Um Latin x but they're not, and if those people wind up dying that seem incorrect data can wind up on their death certificate right? You don't know what's going on or the pact of the pandemic if you don't have that data if you don't know what the person died from. How are you going to prevent it and prevent more from dying from it? These factors lack of trust underfunded public health infrastructure, racial classification all add up to a picture of the pandemic that isn't complete. For example, there's an alarming lack of covid hospitalizations data for native American or Alaskan native folks stuff like if somebody was admitted to the hospital, the ICU or even died compared to white people, CDC only has about a third of that information for Alaskan natives and native Americans and I think that's just again it just goes back to how well you know the state health department or even like the CDC or the public health experts they're not these tribal communities
How a Top NLP Startup is Growing, with Caitlyn Brooksby, Executive Director of PR/Communications at Canary Speech
"Is the executive director of PR and communications at Canary Speech Walking Caitlin. Thanks for being here for having so Canary. Speech was named one of the most promising. Nlp STARTUPS TWO THOUSAND. Nineteen and the company describes itself as being at the intersection of healthcare and technology. Can you tell us a little bit more about what Canary Speech does? And why it is seen as one of the most promising and I'LL BE STARTUPS. Not a great question. You know what I think about. That really takes me back to origin story right. How do we start so five years ago? Our founders Jess Adams in Henry Call. They had been friends for over nearly three decades. Honestly and you know they had lived their careers and they got together and what they wanted to do was set auguste standard in a speech and language industry. They were poised to do it right both. Jeff and Henry. They have a clear the experience in Ashley had the excitement to do it and it really well doctors one question and why light you mentioned because normally talk about speech language industry it really can get techy if you don't really deep which is exciting that fun but what we started with nearest started with was this is how is was humans understand the raw motion in the words that someone speaks. You know when you're talking to your sister or your best friends and you ask how their duty say no good but not you know. There's something different right it's off. And how can we do that as humans? And how you use and what we've done is use machine guided machine learning and to really understand identify conditions. So that really is us so now. Today were six. Hatton's later boss. Us An international. And we've just taken this to a whole new level of redefining speaking language in the healthcare industry and so we talk about healthcare in No the intersection there. That that's really what we're setting out to utilize each language in the healthcare industry and bringing it just that step further so about you know. That's exciting because it does take voice to another level like you said you're not only hearing the words but your understanding you know they should behind what's being said and especially in the healthcare space. That's really important. How are you able to do that? I mean if you can talk about that a little bit. Is there a lot of testing research? They're able to kind us to understand the emotions. Someone's voice yes so really I like to Don frears and so what we've done is we've identified two thousand four hundred fifty eight biomarkers in speech. Okay what is a biomarker? What we're talking about here is like tonal. Quality these aspects of speech but mo up. It's what our body creates. And so we're gonNA find these biomarkers and then we developed bottles that are Z. Specific so they're not person's right cake a rich history of somebody's entire healthcare data and compare it but really what we're duty is a disease that he used mass in really scaled and just be utilized healthcare industry and then he used these models as our speech data so we started out here siege. Five years ago we really were focused on farm street. We were in FDA. Hire me cynical. Trials to this is very controlled environment right and we did this. Because we wanted to be able to cruise our technology and energy to get s right wide able to really tune in for router market or the playstation of it and so we really spent a solid three years of just focusing on these controlled. Studies REALLY AMAZING COPIES. Who wanted to get their to market or just simply to help with a civic disease and so that was really exciting to be a part of that and then we really moved into studies where we from the one hundred group right that were testing to really like in the thousand. Just last month we were able to reach a project that had heard ten thousand over dissipate and that was just exciting me. Mary siege his coming to blow background. Like how is this talk about area of science but what we realized early on was that we need full sets to go into a steadier going for project so what we do is hatcher tissue speech on a person's smart device so we use iphones IPADS android. We use these devices to captures fees. We also talk about the intersection of healthcare technology. What's really exciting is. We decided again early. On though he needed to create that bridge. What we were doing in the healthcare street was connected to what we were going to rate so reduce we include the gold standard Or are the panels which used to go to your doctor if you're dealing with stress I e Rd typically piece of paper that you're asked to allow the pen and paper and rate yourself on Howard layer urge years weeks ago and that's what your position uses to solve. You treats the symptoms that you're dealing with when you work with your physician that you say you could just read their seconds of across cheer South Kearns for the doctors I and made from that based on her stress near Zion Unions. And now we're there which brothels really exciting as a company you've made strides that that's a society scalable. That's Donbass it and resilient school that your physician to news you can use these tests. Don't have to be administrated within the hospital space or in the administrative is like family real and that's a place where is comfortable and you think about what's gone on over the last three or by months with coded ninety it really brings tall houses centerstage in funny. I was seven or eight years ago. I was on one of the committees to bring telehealth mount healthcare in your mouth. Nearly ten years ago I started my career there and is now. I'm embarrassed to say but I used to work for the very first time three months ago. I got a cold sore. I mean I knew it wasn't over ninety but I knew I needed some kind of policy packer. Someone is able to use tell homey bonus. I think that's really going to become the nor so. Yeah that's simple bit of our coaching kind of how I see it. How we see ED signing into healthcare. I agree. I mean we've definitely been using. How much more than we have over time and like I said I love that you all are kind of focusing on this emotional piece. You had mentioned earlier that your company also has multiple patents. Can you share with us? What they are. And why was it important for the company to have patents and do you think that something other voice technology companies should be doing for sure so that we pride ourselves? Moore is coming non-negotiable or Henry Projects. They knew that they wanted language. And in order to do that we had to prove that our technology was novel. And it's really exciting. Because just two weeks ago he had are six patents in the EU and so total right so acid time is for the EU. We were awarded one hundred of our planes which is now is not Donald Law. We were in a meeting with one of our clients. Actually find that I met last lie. Voice show guys and they astor pat they. So what do you think about these pens and looked around set rock-solid on that was exciting? I was excited be in for CEO. So I'll break down. Three strategic areas are Hatton's first one is that selection of the twenty four hundred biomarkers show and that had is called is slipping speech germs for building models for detecting medical conditions. So that patent is discharge behind. It is how we go about these biomarkers and using them within our guy and then the second is the. Pat Huddle is medical assessment based on voice. So there's really strategies around this particular the versus we use these selected biographers to identify. Disease are hunger stations. Each right. We're not to read this verbatim Hans. That's awkward not natural right. We're saying hey is our technology on conversational speech. Something that you and I are right now. And then. The third kind of strategy area is use of this artificial speech on vices in zone patented utilize the techniques together on smart devices. And what would that be your watch or your phone right? In an dots really were strategies are

Derby d'Italia Preview
"Hello welcome to the show. The Italian peninsula is pulsating at the prospect of the the Italian. I described the anticipation level. Here is above average shackling shocks. The only major daily Steve Nickel Craig Burley Guide Makoni is with US too. He is certainly quaking at the prospect of you venter's against Inter. We can see they are the top two teams in in Syria. After six games into perfect with six wins out of six events is just the two points behind them. The automakers actually actually make it into slight favorites to win this at home. You've into sit close to two to one for the win just over two to one on the draw gap. Let's start with you. It's always a massive game but many are calling this the biggest WTI Italia in close to a decade why simply because it's really the first time in close to a decade that that interacts legitimate contenders they've won every game name thus far in they're coming off a Champions League week where they went to the camp now in Barcelona and for more than an hour they play really really well and then perhaps had a dip at the end and so all these factors together coupled with all the all the subjects here obviously you've got doggone thing and Bep in Mata going back to take on to take on new Venice. You've got you know geico go dean against skips. Ronaldo renewing old rivalries there. You've got show many things going on on the side as well. I think there is a sense that the people are ready after so many years of vendors dominance for for somebody to go and deliver the title and it would be quite a story if it were who does it contain against Syria sorry of course gap the battle of the recently deposed Chelsea coaching say. Let's let's get to the teams that you expect to see out there. GAP STARTS OUT WITH INTER-WAR. What is it starting eleven and we look at blue collar. Who Missing Out in mid week? He's should be fit again so he's up front. There's no Alexis Sanchez who suspended of course foolish suspended I might add highly would've started anyway Dombrowski of coming in on the right wing Mozart elite for beyond that it's really interest- best eleven recenter backs and really explosive midfield led by Stefan with and Brockovich rough and what about event is Gab. Renaldo is starting to click yeah some debate about whether it's developed Renaldo whether it's GonNa be Wayne and who Seattle upfront some debate over the formation I should do. There's a lot more than certainty here which weird when you think society team we know that his best eleven we'll have douglas on the wing and that that four three three with church turns before for two off the ball but there is no douglas costs are so the thinking is we're going to see somebody in the whole it could be Aaron Ramsey. We will the Aaron Ramsey it could be. There's also the option of been lining up as sort of the third man in that three prong attack in midfield. Probably what what right now you would say three and ambulatory continued to write back in part because the show and then levels out in part because he's done a pretty decent job there and obviously community but we know that he's not gonna be back until the new year so it's partnering Pucci Delicious Delicious Prospect. Isn't it great big one for Ramsey's relatively house played the GOP said they'd give teams a bit more hard to gauge because Sarah has changed around and they have a big squad but as another market down for inter who started this season fantastic well okay had a big challenge in mid week which the the Ba- lost whoo certainly won't disgraced and the debt of CIANCI's against the US side who haven't quite had the straps yet. I think gobs mentioned this before. I think one of the big things enter is not just the fact that they've got. Some new faces in the playing field is the fact that Antonio Conte has given the funds hope as well and you know. Here's is a guy that goes to ut lingering around seventh previous even towns around it goes to Chelsea has a has a bad star tones it round that season they went new league and to get off the six games in the League of Women Star. I think giving everybody a and rightly so I'll look forward to but the two biggies is tested all coming within four or five days and then you know got good gauge of where enter our by by Sunday night I coming off that loss against since Barcelona as well I I'm interested to see coney goes both because of the Madrid in bothell on an yes they played well for no doubt shed but ultimately law is he going to try and set trying to save some energy because they they gave me or will he try and take advantage of the modern pop because it's five against four my opinion of safely we three you. You know sorry one which which we did. He go accompanied my mind up whether he goes on the front foot or whether it goes conservative. Yep You get the sense out there. Slow Start Conventis is starting to enjoy full now and Maurizio. Sorry starting to figure things out as you'd expect. This event is a still you've enters the daytime daytime defending champions for for a reason. I still think that this is you've enters. That hasn't hit full stride just yet. I feel they can go up a game or two and I act who is coming would be playing seemingly for the long term now. I don't think he's found his confidence either. Just yet alongside Baluchi intend to catch a new Venice. This is about as good a time. No parental yeah to get something out of it. I can key players Craig fee. Oh you who stands out on either side of the ball who the potential gain decide his sentence. He's playing Brnovich. Didn't the hard graft in the middle of the macaca could come back in the game. You know mind united we were critical as GONNA show up in a real big games. They don't come much bigger than this. He didn't play mid week so so he's he's. He's fresh off blocking the site so he'd be a big shot mentioned from you have a lane how does young Honduras partnership with Benicio Gab. I wonder mental block. Perhaps for into the get over here. They've only beaten you've inches one time in the last thirteen in Syria. I don't think so we look I mean have a whole lot of issues mental and otherwise have had over the last decade but you know I'm not a believer in those statistics. I don't see how it's relevant. What happened eight games ago ten games ago when it was different players? It was a different manager different manager on the on the you've aside as well of course obviously when you're when you ain't that it does feel as if you you're kind of always climbing a mountain. It's a very Sisyphean pursuit if you will but that's add any dog team especially in the first six months months what they're never lacking is mentality so. I don't think that's going to be an issue in issue for them at all. I think give this game this game. I don't think it's going to be won or lost by mind games or whatever this game is going to be won or lost either either tactically if one of these two teams and weirdly Qaddafi who's the one who's perhaps more likely to throw a curve ball and change things up rather than Cold Day. One there or it's going to be won by individuals because you've got some tremendous game changing individuals on the page from from merely Ghannage to China Rinaldo obviously to as as we heard from Craig the likes Consi Louder Martinez whose looked sharp and maybe lukaku offers a different type of challenge stevie could possibly be a game decided by which defense plays better the the defense has been spectacular. They've conceded feed. No there's only one mistakes in my head as could game could be decided by Rinaldo. Yeah I mean the truth is I'm listening in right now. This could be a good thing to play event. Remember l'ennemi vent is no last couple seasons regardless of the monitor players have we sat and watched little about how the moving the ball well decree logic get the feeling that was more event as it never played. GUETTA fought to get resolved. They always get when at my house most. There's one team and there's one. Guy Renaldo who comes up trump scored in both games at the San Sierra last season prediction timeshare. which way do you see this going? I in and to get the job done. You know I think we've seen enough from into suggests that and as I said on a standby this is as good time as any to to catch Venice. I think to get three points. Golden Lost Zero sorry at the wrong country park for that aw just particularly say come on it was nothing to do with. We talked about insurance. There's nothing to be by defendant grip pace in the bowl from massey the touch from Suarez just go finish one of those things it wasn't all over the place yes they had to defend but they were beaten by couple of Grit Gold folks and I think that gives them heartful game because the well I'm GonNa go for an intimate on win and another Markelle Dome for them in the League to who they're going to be a Hatcher Kuni. Event is don't lose. Don't lose so you're saying say saying juice. Hugh had junior bets into we've all event is always come up trumps. You County back against him in a big game blue gabby. You get you get the casting vote here. What's going to happen diplomatically. Sit on the fence here. See something I think into draw points for the first time in the season. I'm going to go with with a high scoring hiring draw to to something like that. Maybe even more I know you wouldn't normally think so. Look at city is a game. It's going to be tight but I think there are enough off individuals out there and you know this is still Saturday's. You've and I could see a game with practically different outcome but along the same lines of what we saw when they played Napoli so basically gobbled says you won't lose that'd be Eddie can place for the girls rose for a high scoring draw the rest of the Syria fixtures on Saturday and Sunday looking like this
Couple on rescuing CA boat fire survivors: “It’s just one of those things you can’t unsee”
"We also want to bring you up to date on that horrible story about the boat to caught fire off the coast of California and some of the people who were on that boat are still missing. this was three thirty in the morning the boat was near the Channel Islands it was a scuba diving expedition all of the passengers were as sleep below deck candy when this fire broke out and trapped them down below deck now such a sad situation and apparently they had no opportunity to get out it's hard to imagine I'm no expert on boats it's hard to imagine there wasn't a Hatcher something that allowed them a chance to get out now listen listen to this call the Coast Guard says the the the person calling was the captain of the ship you will not hear his voice on this you will only hear the Coast Guard emergency dispatcher but to you'll hear the dispatcher saying what do you mean they're locked inside below deck can can't get out what do you mean you didn't have any fire fighting equipment on board the ship. while that is stunning to hear that all of the crew members got off of the ship they got on a some kind of a little skipper something and went to a nearby ship that was anchored and were rescued the passengers were trapped below us so again just imagine this this boat and was there only one little door that provided to the entrance and it was it jammed who knows if we'll ever know why it was locked and then for the whole thing to been engulfed in flames I'm gonna suggest a fire extinguisher not gonna do a whole lot of good at that point if if the oxygen was the combustible agent here that just made this thing go up you know just in flames instantly a fire extinguisher to probably not going to whole Lotta good in a situation like that this is three thirty in the morning but it does when you hear that audio it makes you wonder why didn't somebody who's on the crew and they were all awake at that time they were up they were all on the deck yeah according to their version of the story. why didn't somebody try to unlock the door and that's you know did they Trier was that every man for himself and the crew and the captain I'm and didn't go down with the ship don't know about that part but did did they did they abandon their responsibilities to try to help those passengers and they just said I'm getting out of here surely Hanson was on board her both the grape escape it was moored several hundred feet away she was awakened by five men from this boat banging on her own vessels hole this group of the the crew escaped on a detainee and they told Mrs Hanson that a bad fire had broken out on their boat. and one man had a broken leg to the man to search the water near the boat but didn't locate any additional survivors the men were all distraught they said they had celebrated a birthday party for one of the ship's passengers on Sunday evening. and Mrs Hanson says you felt so helpless to see this in the black of the night it's three thirty in the morning now they're out on the water all she could see was flames that engulfed the entire boat now I want to be clear it's very much speculation Donna maybe those crew members tried to help the passengers in some way before the flames in the fire just prevented them from doing anything else other than than saving their own lives don't know if we'll ever know the true story there Coast Guard record show the conception was last inspected in February the ship was in full compliance with regulatory requirements that would imply there was fire extinguishers onboard someplace then if that yes that box that's according to captain Rochester with the U. S. Coast Guard vessel walls launched in nineteen eighty one it had box for forty six passengers all the passengers slept below deck according to the U. S. Coast Guard and there was only one way out boy and and so does that mean the cruise school quarters were above deck I guess and that's how they were able to to get often of just the passenger bunk beds down below Kelly I I I have not seen yet why all of the crew were up at three thirty and on the deck it it's just not spelled out so far in any of the reporting the federal government has sent a team from the national transportation safety board to investigate there is out there today investigators will review the safety history of the vessel and the company they will review the boat's design they will look at the fire fighting equipment that was on board and how the crew was trained. going to a spokesperson for the federal government national transportation safety board Kenny this could go down as one of the worst disasters in the in US history for this cut type of boating yeah for maritime like this and and this investigation it'll be a year mark before we hear what's really happened there I'll surely they're gonna try to understand the cause of the blaze to along with all the other they have to mention yes what what what started it why was it so big and spread so rapidly that the crew had to get off immediately and couldn't do anything to help save the
