"That. And again, we're distracted. We move on to the next thing, but on the next thing. So what are some of the things that what are some of the companies out there that you would say right off the bat, they are working overtime against the values of most of us. Target. Target. Target. I knew you were talking to target, because that's the top level. Target. Yes, and I am one that used to love the target experience. The whole going there, the something about the aesthetics, the whole experience, it's very appealing. It's hard to give up. I understand that. It's convenient. There are several targets around. But come on, it is nauseating to me now to know what they do and to still support them. However, what my policy is, Walgreens is another one that is a really not good company, which is your child Walgreens. Walgreens is a very well-known company. So think about this. Think folks, how big these companies are, they're everywhere, and you kind of feel like everywhere. The choice do I have? I got to drive on the road. I got to go, I got to get this. I got to get that. I can't avoid it. But you're telling us, if you can avoid Walgreens and target, that these have become tremendously woke companies. But the point is, okay, if your child has a fever at three in the morning and Walgreens is the only 24 hour entity open, go get your child some Tylenol or whatever at Walgreens. You make the best choice that you can at that time. Amazon is really hard to compete with. I mean, they've got, you know, we're in the Nashville area. We can get same day delivery. There are some times that we have to use Amazon and we don't like to use Amazon and we try to avoid it. We want to shop local. Then we choose a mom and pop shop if we can't find just a local something we use a smaller brand name that's not a family owned company or American made. So we try to do like a sphere of local and then family owned and then so we try to avoid the big box brands as much as possible. But the point is that you make the best choices every time that you can. And not to brow beat yourself and not to just go crazy with trying to be dogmatic about it, but just every choice beware of what you're trying to do and realize that each purchase that you make, it is a vote. And if you're just careless and you do Willy nilly, whatever you want to do, you're making a vote towards the left's agenda. If you don't pay attention and say, hey, I'm going to try to be more aware of what I'm purchasing. What are some of the, some of the particularly good companies? Are there any that we can even think of? Are there any? Yes, there are. And I'll just name a few that some of our top ones would be like patriot mobile, a very small cell phone company, but they are, they score very high. Waffle House. Hobby lobby. Chick-fil-A. Those are some of the ones that we know of that score high. But we also have some that score in the neutral zone. If you look on our website and you see in the threes, those are neutral and we celebrate the neutrals because they're focusing, like I said, just on their product just on their services and they're doing a great job and we really celebrate those. We recommend those. And what we want to work on are focus is to work on those companies that are just below the three, just under there, and we want to encourage them. We want to email them. We want to target them and say, hey, can y'all move a little bit? Can you maybe stop doing this product or maybe this campaign or this educational program? Maybe drop the CRT a little bit. And then you can move towards a neutral score. And then we can celebrate you too. So that's our focus is to help companies get more neutral. So they're moving away from that political stance. Well, the whole thing is we want to incentivize them. We want to say to them, listen. We would like to shop there. Would you change this and this and this? Because if you do that, we're there. And you will see. Exactly. But a lot of them don't know that. And unless we send an email or unless we get involved. And I know all this stuff you can find at second vote dot com again. It's the number two ND second vote dot com. But you just mentioned a couple of good ones. You said patriot mobile, waffle House, hobby lobby Chick-fil-A now waffle House I hadn't thought of. They are right. You're saying that they are a good company on all this stuff. They are scored very well. Yes, they're in the fours. They're scored high. 5 would be the highest and we don't have quite a 5 patriot mobile's close, but waffle house score is very high. I believe it's a 4.85. They score high on our score system. That's a big deal, folks. I just want to encourage you to the extent that you're able to get involved and to begin to understand where do I spend my money. And post it on social media, tell your Friends. I'm not shopping here because of this policy, but I'm shopping here because of this puzzle. You have to spread this idea. You have to spread these ideas, but patriot mobile waffle House, hobby lobby, Chick-fil-A. I always say. Davis rental. What's that? Avis rental. Avis? Avis rental. They score higher than hertz and enterprise. Hers and enterprise score very low. Avis son of a gun. Well, that's yes. Terrific to hear Rebecca because I would have never known that if I'm given exactly between Avis and these others that I ought to go with Avis. So folks, we got to we got to take this seriously and we got to spread the word wherever we go. We'll be back. Rebecca Hatfield, I want you to encourage you folks go to second vote dot com. It's two ND second vote dot com. This is a big deal. This is a movement, folks. If you.

"Tell me Eric, why is relief factors so successful at lowering or eliminating pain? I'm often asked that question, the owners of relief factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right, designed to heal. And I agree with them. So the doctors who formulated relief factor for them selected the four best ingredients, yes, 100% drug free ingredients, each helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of before ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway, and that right there approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. So if you've got back pain, shoulder neck hip knee or foot pain from exercise or just getting older, you should order the three week quick start discounted to only 1995 to see if it will work for you. It works for me. It has for about 70% of the half a million people who've tried it and have ordered more, go to relief factor dot com or call 800 for relief to find out about this offer, feel the difference. Hey there folks. As I hope I warned you, I want to talk about something that's very, very close to my heart right now. If you've been listening to this program for a number of years, you will have heard of this, there's something called second vote second vote dot com. That's the number two ND and it's about using our money to affect things. We all say, well, I got to vote. I got to vote. A lot of people are too dumb to vote. I'm not addressing them right now. If you're one of those people folks, go repent and then vote. And tell everyone you better vote. But there's way more that we can do that is vital. Way more than just voting. And the money that we spend and how we spend our money is something that I think a lot of people, it just never occurs to us. Well, we're living in really woke, sick times, and suddenly we better think about this. So I'm really thrilled to have the president of second vote. Yes, it's an organization to talk to us about it. Rebecca Hatfield, welcome to the program. Thank you, Eric. Thanks for having me. Well, you and I bumped into each other in Las Vegas at freedom fest. I don't like Las Vegas, but I love freedom fest. And I bumped into this fun people and you said that you were the head of second thought. I was like, wait a minute. We need to talk because I want my audience to hear about this again. If they haven't heard about it, how did you, first of all, what is your vision for a second vote? I mean, if people go to the website to second vote dot com, what are they find? What is the, what is the plan? Okay, well, our vision is to educate and inform consumers where watchdog advocate. So what we do is we let customers consumers, investors, what we let them know which companies are basically neutral, which ones are focusing on their product and their services and which ones are becoming more political, whether it's right or left. So that's what we do. We inform the market consumers. We believe that in a capitalist system, which is what we a free market was we are supposed to have, which is not exactly what we have. That's what we're goal is. We believe that the consumers or the guardrails. And so until the consumers say, enough, we don't like what you're doing until we speak with our wallet by voting with our wallet and saying, or our voices until we raise that rise up and say, hey, this is enough. No more. We're not taking this. You're not shoving this down our throats by either stopping, shopping there, and going somewhere else. So when you don't go to one store because you don't like what they're doing and you choose another one, you're voting, whether you realize it or not. Now if you don't like their prices, you're making a vote. You're saying, I don't like your prices. I like these prices. Or if you don't like their quality, I don't like that quality. I like this quality. So you're making a choice, you're making a vote. First vote is at the ballot box. Your second vote is with your wallet. Well, this is huge. We've had our Friends on from inspire investing, the way you invest your money, where you invest your money or 401k, whatever that is, that is important. But right now, we're talking about something that is previous to that. Much more central to our lives, how you spend your money every day, where you shop every day. Where you buy this, where you buy that. I think we have to be upfront Rebecca and say that there's no way to get this right. In other words, we're living in a broken world, and no matter what you do, no matter what car you drive, what are your always participating in a broken world. So you could drive yourself crazy, you know, there are people that are going to say, well, I can't even, I can't drive a car because that car company did this, and this car company did that. And I don't want to get my gas from that company. And so the point here is not to drive yourself insane, but it's to be responsible to educate yourself and to educate your neighbors and your friends and relatives. And so we've had examples in the past that really kind of rise to the level of public consciousness, where everybody says, I can't believe what such and such a company did. Disney, the worst. I mean, Disney should be canceled for a thousand centuries over what it did. Now, there are a lot of people have already forgotten about that. They think, oh, I don't care. Folks, we've got to be serious about this. These companies are taking our money and it's not all about being entertained and being comfortable. Sometimes we have to make choices. But when a company does something as brazen as what Disney did, which is effectively standing with wicked people grooming our children, it says sick as it gets. You need to take that seriously. I don't care if you're a fan of Disney or aren't. You need to understand that you make it possible for them to have that cultural power and to do tremendous damage. So we have to take these things seriously. But oftentimes, it's not something as big as.

"Absolutely. Did you see after roe versus wade, how many companies came out? I mean, we couldn't keep up with all the companies that came out and said, we're going to jump on that bandwagon of paying for employees to go out of state to have an abortion. And that was a huge, huge thing that suddenly all these companies were saying, that's what we're going to do. We're going to do that too. We're going to pay for employees to go out of state if they have to. What are some of the companies that we would know that did that? Oh my goodness, there was Cisco. There was Starbucks. There was all the national media brands. Target, it was well, to me, the biggest surprise was Walmart when they recently did that. Because they originally had said they weren't. And then they turn around and said they were. Is that what happens I buy? I believe so, but it's like, hey, you want to help kill a baby? Go buy something at target, folks. You've got to think that way that your money. You do. You can go anywhere you want. This is a free country. You can go anywhere. And we have to understand that they made these choices, folks. We're not trying to punish people just to put they have freely made these choices. Why? Because they believe it will benefit them. Target. And all these companies think that if I do this and this and this and this, I'm virtue signaling and everybody's going to support me. Well, that's what happens unless you don't support them unless you understand that you have a responsibility to make them know there is a price to pay in the opposite direction. If I make that decision, plenty of people will say, you know what? I was shopping there, but I will not shop there now because that's a bridge too far. I can not give God's money to that corporation because they have made it very clear where they stand. Well, and also think about it. If they have a pregnant employee, if she were to go full term and have maternity leave, that would cost them more money than just sending her across state lines to have an abortion. How sick is that? And then at another aspect, they're opening themselves to me up for a lot of litigation because if they pay for an employee to go across lines for one medical procedure, what about another one that needs a heart transplant, or a life state, another lifesaving procedure, and they won't pay for that. This seems very, very erratic to me. I don't think that would be a sustainable policy. Well, again, it's called virtue of laying in there playing a game. And of course, the media generally is on their side. So we have to use our voices. We have to be much more vocal. And anybody who doesn't understand this. I want to be really clear folks. God wants your faith to touch every part of your life. There's no such thing as a little religious corner, okay? That's where the devil wants you to keep your faith as in a religious corner God wants you to take your faith into every part of your life and to bless people in everything you do, whether it's buying a product at a store or how you vote or what you say publicly. God wants us to live our faith out for his purposes. And if we don't do that, if we say that, well, I just, I paid ties usually and I go to this church and you think you're covered, I'm here to tell you, no, you're not covered. God requires far more. And he's insulted he's offended when we try to play that game and think, well, I've covered it up. I've got a fig leaf covering up my nakedness. It's good. It's fine, I'm good. No, you're not good. It's not good. So we'll be back another segment with Rebecca Hatfield. Second vote dot com doing God's work. It's two ND second vote dot com. Please check them out. Please share it on social media. This is a real movement. This is exciting. Never loved and tried to call you. But only 9 to watch I realized why twice. So let's welcome back, talking to Rebecca Hatfield, who's the president of second.

Spending God's Money to Help Your Community

"A mission from God, folks. Remember The Blues Brothers. We're on a mission from God. This is a mission from God. He wants us to be stewards of the money he allows us to have for his purposes and that just doesn't mean ties and offerings. It means when you spend your money, where are you spending it? Are you spending it responsibly spending it with people that are doing things like Walmart just the other day? They used to be a pro American company, even though a 140% of their stuff is made in China. But they just the other day said, hey, you know, we will help you to kill your unborn child. We're going to vote against the idea that children in the womb are sacred. And we're going to make an extra effort to take the profits we make from people who buy in our stores to help women do the wrong thing that's going to hurt them. And it's an unbelievable thing. So if you have to shop in a place like Walmart, well, I think you can go there. But it's a challenge for us to find places usually Rebecca local places. My wife is big on this. Support a local mom and pop shop. It might cost you more money. But folks, it's God's money. It's God's money. That's right. And when you support these local places where the especially when people share your values, it really does affect everything. It's not just a one time purchase. It affects your community. It affects what comes into your community.

So we've got some exciting products that are about to be released that are going to help it make it easy, easy, even easier, and accessible, so it'll be right there when you're shopping.

Folks, we've got to be serious about this. These companies are taking our money and we are it's not all about being entertained and being comfortable. Sometimes we have to make choices. But when a company does something as brazen as what Disney did, which is effectively standing with wicked people grooming our children, it's sick as it gets. You need to take that seriously. I don't care if you're a fan of Disney or aren't. You need to understand that you make it possible for them to have that cultural power and to do tremendous damage. So we have to take these things seriously. But oftentimes, it's not something as big as.

"And so, but he can only come here once we're done with this. All right, so a few things to share. First of all, in a couple of minutes, we're airing my conversation with Rebecca Hatfield about second vote. Folks, this is big stuff. We haven't aired this yet, right? I can't believe we have another. This is very important. When you hear her talk about, it sort of how we spend our money. Are we giving our money to companies with woke values and how we can change? And so this is exciting. So I always want to bring hope to our radio audience because frankly, we need hope. We need to figure out how do we move forward in a positive way. Rebecca Hatfield is my guest. And that's about how you spend money. That's number one. Number two, we're not talking about that today, but we have had one of the sponsors on this program. Is inspire investors and I want to tell people to go to this website inspire advisers dot com if you go to inspire advisers dot com slash Eric. Does anybody going to do this? I hope people do this because this is, this is the way forward folks. It's kind of like the Rebecca Hatfield thing. How we spend our money, that's up to us. We have freedom to spend our money with companies that support our values or don't. And we're going to talk about that for this hour. And actually in our two today, we're going to be talking to Brandon Tatum, which that's totally unrelated to this. But I want to remind people we're going to re air my conversation with Brandon Tatum about his life and about the new film out at Salem now dot com. But how we invest our money with if you have a 401k or an IRA, tons of those funds, they invest your money in woke corporations. And so to find out if you're invested in corporations that are woke and what to do about it, I'm asking you to go to inspire advisers dot com slash Eric. It's just one way that we can be good stewards of our money. So folks, please check that out. Inspire advisers dot com slash Eric. Okay, now Alvin. Yes. Before I've got other kind of kooky vacation stories, but before I say any of them, I also want to remind people that we've just got today and tomorrow to hit our goal. We're not there, folks. We're trying to raise money for refugees in Ukraine who are starving. This is not about the war effort. This is not about supporting the Ukraine war effort. This is about supporting the people whose lives have been torn apart. And who literally can't feed their kids. So if you go to our website, it's metaxas talk dot com. That's the radio website, not to be confused with my personal website, Eric, my taxes dot com, where you should be going every day. American Texas dot com to sign up for the newsletter. But if you go to metaxas talk dot com, you'll see the banner and we want to encourage everybody. I don't know how to encourage you folks except to say that every dollar you give goes so far, every dollar is four meals. That's how far they're stretching this money. So there are hundreds of thousands of refugees who can't feed their kids, food for the poorest stepped up, but they need our help and they're still plenty people who listen to this program who haven't been.

"Overflow railroad tracks and roads are obliterated farms and homes or ripped away by flooding one panicked residents fleeing his home in a rowboat shouts. Let's pay hatfield ten thousand to quit. Meanwhile charles doesn't see what the big fuss is about in the midst of the storm. The rainmaker call san diego city hall with an ominous message. He says quote. I just wanted to tell you that it is only sprinkling now within the next few days. I expect to make it really rain horrified. The officials asked if he's joking and he apparently responds quote. Never more serious in my life. Just hold your horses. And i'll show you a real rain for two more weeks. The destruction continues on january. Twenty seventh another reservoir gives way sending a forty foot wall of water crashing into the coastline. The wave sweeps away everything in its pat trees livestock houses and people. One guy clings to a small tree as he watches houses and cattle sweep past him. Some of the animals are alive but many are already dead. They look like helpless. Little toys completely powerless. Miraculously this man makes it out alive but not everyone is so lucky. More than a dozen people lose their lives in that wave alone. By the end of january the skies are finally clear but the city is incomplete shambles. Fifty people died in the deluge. Even those who didn't lose loved ones basically lost everything else. People are hurt horrified and angry and they know just who to blame. They call this hatfields flood. Charles though is still out in the woods by the reservoir he filled. He can't understand why everyone's so upset. He fulfilled his end of the bargain. He proved he's the best rainmaker america has ever seen and now he's ready for his payment coming up.

Clark now back to the story. In the aftermath of san diego's january nineteen sixteen storm. Charles hatfield is either truly oblivious to the cold reception that awaits him in the city or he just doesn't care and the end of january. He treks the sixty miles back into town with a big smile. On his face and an outstretched hand like vattel. Be ten thousand dollars please. and as you can imagine. Things don't go so smoothly. The city council has no plan to pay him the way they see it. It charles did 'cause the storm he's a monster who doesn't deserve a penny if he didn't he's a con artist. Hoop still doesn't deserve penny. Not to mention if they did pay him. They're essentially saying they commissioned a natural disaster. Which isn't going to look good when they filed their six million dollars worth of damage suits which is worth close to one hundred fifty million today so all those council members who were eager to hire charles a month ago are now calling the flood an act of god and when charles protest. They sent him to a city attorney. Who essentially tells charles. He has two options. One he leaves sandiego empty-handed and never shows his sorry face here again. Charles could try and fight it in court. Legally his case doesn't hold any water. Nobody ever signed a contract. It was a verbal agreement or two they could sign a contract. Now they pay charles the ten thousand dollars in full and then charles would be liable for the city's millions in damages. What is charles pick. Well he's fit so he chooses neither. He's beating the odds before so he's willing to try his luck and take the city to court and he does. But the case drags on for a year and in the end it amounts to a whole lot of nothing. Charles had no contract and no way to prove he caused the storm before the case. Resolves charles decide. It's best to leave san diego now. You might think with everything that happened. Charles would find himself unemployed but with a bit of distance. The events in san diego seem a little less grim and a lot more magical. It even becomes a selling point for charles. He refers to the storm as the most potent test i ever made. He may never collect his ten thousand but he was crowned the king of american rainmakers for the next twelve years. Charles works everywhere from canada to cuba to honduras. The money is good. The destinations are exciting. He's on top of the world and a long way from his dusty days on his dad's ranch but even for someone as lucky as charles. The good times don't last forever when the great depression arrives in nineteen twenty nine. His business takes a serious hit. No one can pay him even city governments. Don't have the cash to throw it. Something like rain summoning and fdr's new deal leads to the construction of more dams and better water infrastructure across the country which essentially render his services. Unnecessary charles hatfield is never proven to be a fraud but in the blink of an eye. He's obsolete and yet somehow his star keeps shining in nineteen fifty six eighty one year old charles attends the premiere of the rainmaker. A film inspired by his life. It stars katharine hepburn and burt lancaster to hollywood heavyweights and in the twilight of his life. He's back in the spotlight where he feels at home where he thinks he belongs. He dies two years later taking his secret. Twenty-three chemical formula to the grave but his legacy lives on in the work of other rainmakers. Yep that's right. The days of attempted weather modification never ended in recent years. A technology called cloud seeding uses chemicals like dry ice and silver iodide to encourage clouds. Make rain the whole process is controversial for many reasons. The technique doesn't quite prove that controlling weather is possible but there are real reputable trained scientists that are invested in finding out and if it is possible. It's also possible. That charles hatfield science was as real as he promised. I mean if you look at his successes. The results speak for themselves. Maybe he was way ahead of his time and he invented a technology that scientists are still struggling to recreate. But there's another more likely explanation. One that most experts agree on charles was a well educated gambler. He studied meteorology. He did his research on weather patterns and he played the odds. You would travel somewhere dry. That was likely to get rain soon and put on a convincing enough show that he could take credit for what mother nature would have already done anyway. Regardless of what you choose to believe the biggest secret to charles's success was that he understood something about human nature. We really like to be in control. We don't like to be at the mercy of fate. We wanna feel like our lives belong to us. We want it so much that when we're not in control were willing to suspend disbelief and bet against.

"A concoction of twenty three different chemicals aged in casks throughout the day. Charles keeps talking up his science. He assures his clients that it's the future but for all his confidence there's still a slight furrow in his brow. He meets this to work. He can see his future success so clearly he can almost taste it but he doesn't dare breathe a sigh relief until days later when it starts to rain in the end. Charles's technology seems to deliver on his promises. Sure it could have been a coincidence. But it doesn't matter. It rains enough to get him paid and to leave the ranchers singing his praises. Charles hatfield rainmaker has credibility and he wastes no time putting it to use later that year he shows up in los angeles with his vats of chemicals and in no time at all he catches the attention of the city's business leaders charles says he can make eighteen inches of rain fall from the sky in the next five months of course. He has seriously upped his rate. At this point it will cost them one thousand dollars or close to thirty thousand dollars today but he still offering his same money back guarantee and he suspects these city folk have some pretty deep pockets. And that's a good bet. Not only do they have the money. They're desperate. It's been devastatingly dry lately. It charles can deliver. It would save all the crops and reservoirs in los angeles. Which in turn would save. Lives and really. Can you put a price tag on that. After the deals made charles gets to work once again he does everything in broad daylight knows secrets. Ellie residents gathered to watch as he builds. His tower pours his special chemical recipe. Then they wait for rain. of course it doesn't happen instantly. Charles reminds his impatient patrons. It's science not magic. The chemicals have to rise with the heat react with the air and attract clouds only then will the condensation build and everyone will see the results in sure. Enough by the end of his five month deadline it starts to rain. In fact he exceeds his promise of eighteen inches by an inch or two. The entire city is thrilled. Charles becomes this subject of public fascination a minor celebrity white knight one headline declares young wizard of meteorology proves his ability to fill orders for rainstorms. Now charles has some real momentum. This is what he always dreamed of accomplishing money. Fame success he works steadily from nineteen o five onwards for everyone from water companies to cotton farmers to minors. He travels the country from oregon to washington to texas. Meanwhile he is rolling in cash four inches of rain. He's paid the equivalent of over a hundred twenty thousand dollars today for one gig by nineteen fifteen. He's racked up seventeen different commercial contracts. Does he sometimes fail to produce rain. Yes but he can't win them all especially with so many elements at play temperature pressure wind all that meteorology stuff lay. People wouldn't understand the press falls for it. They don't pay much attention to charles failures in the grand scheme of things. One magazine writes his disappointments have been very few of course. Very few is very vague. So i don't know charles exact success rate but none of that matters because big storm can wash away every failure and sometimes it washes away a few lives in the process. Coming up nature shows its strength. Hi it's vanessa from cast. And i'm here to tell you about my new ten episode limited series obituaries.

The west coast is going to be ramping up. San diego wants to stake. Its claim as the go to port for all these boats so the city plans this huge promotional event. It's meant to be like olympic level big but if rain doesn't start falling there's going to be no water to drink and no crops to feed all the people coming in obviously the city's government is freaking out so when charles hatfield pops into town promising he could fill their reservoir no problem. Most council members are happy to take him up on his offer. They don't even mind that he's charging ten thousand dollars the equivalent of more than two hundred fifty thousand dollars today but there are some skeptics. This one council member named herbert fe does entrust it. He says charles is a con man. Peddling quote rank foolishness but as usual. Charles is only asking for payment if he succeeds. It's no risk all were work. So the council votes four to one to give him a chance. Now charles is no novice at this point. He's been in the game for over ten years with this is still his biggest contract ever so the pressures on as san diego is preparing to ring in the new year of nineteen sixteen charles sets off on a quiet hikes through the woods with his brother who he's recruited as an assistant they're heading for a spot sixty miles east of the city right near the marina reservoir the one he promised to fill but as he starts building his usual worksite. He realizes he's been followed. A bunch of san diego residents apparently caught wind of his plans and hiked up to watch him work. A crowd watches as he builds his tower and mixes his chemicals. But this time around. He does something unusual. He lights some of the pans on fire which maybe is an accident or possibly a new technique regard lists. The smell is horrible.

Times wanted to understand the weather but without science they had to invent creative ways to explain it so the greeks told stories about a pantheon of gods who used whether for their own ends. The book of genesis gave us the story of noah and the catastrophic flood but by the time the industrial age was in full swing. People wanted to do more than explain the weather. They wanted to control it. After all by the nineteenth century powers that once seemed impossible. Even supernatural becoming commonplace humankind had harnessed electric light in glass bulbs. Couldn't someone figure out how to control the rain. The first man to vie for the title of scientific rainmaker was james pollard. Espy an american meteorologist. He believed that he could set these massive forest fires that would heat the air up and create enough condensation to make rain. Unfortunately for him and the forest he obliterated his theory didn't work. Throughout the rest of the nineteenth century other would be rainmakers had similar non results and pretty soon people began to suspect that the whole concept of weather modification was just wishful thinking until the early twentieth century. When a self taught weather aficionado enter the picture with a bit more optimism. His name is charles hatfield as a young man. Charles is working a day job as a sewing machine salesman when he comes across these stories about rainmakers like james pollard. Espy and he's like these guys are pedaling something valuable more than hope. They're selling life. Charles spent his youth working on his father's ranch in california so he understands the importance of rain. Water crops means a healthy harvest which means enough food to eat. If you could find a way to prevent droughts there might never be another famine. Sure every attempt at actually doing it has been a pretty big failure but maybe charles can crack the code and if he can he can definitely make a pretty penny off the deal. So charles learns everything he can about meteorology atmospheric pressure humidity wind patterns. It's not a formal education. But he feels like he really has a knack for it and when he's done with his books. Charles starts experimenting. He climbs a windmill tower near his father's ranch and starts messing around with some chemicals to create his secret formula. I'm not exactly sure what these experiments are or what goes into his miraculous rain potion. Charles never tells anyone his secrets. But i do know that by nineteen for a twenty nine year. Old charles is ready to go public with his new technology. He plays some ads in the local paper calling himself. A moisture accelerator. His work isn't magic. He stresses he says quote. I do not make rain. That would be an absurd claim. I simply attract clouds and they do the rest. The ads catch the eye of some ranchers. Just outside la. They're super intrigued. Especially because the former salesman has an incredible pitch. Charles promises a no money down guarantee. Nobody has to pay him until after it rains. And he's only asking for fifty bucks which is worth about fifteen hundred dollars today and don't get me wrong. That's not pennies. But ranchers are used to hefty business expenses. And if there's a drought they'd lose much more and plus charles doesn't look like a con man. He clearly has ambition and a healthy dose of bravado. But he's serious about what he's doing. He looks like he's been in his lab for so long. He hasn't seen the sun in years. Now there is something a little off about his piercing blue eyes. But it's the kind of off that could just be the mannerisms of genius so in the end the ranchers are like you got yourself a deal on the big day the ranchers show up to watch charles's process. There's a lot that goes into it i. There's this wooden platform elevated on tall stilts charles apparently calls this his evaporating tower. It's so tall. It looks like it's ways with every light breeze but that could also be a mirage from the overbearing heat next charles halls up some of his secret sauce and pours it into these big shallow trays were. It will eventually evaporate. Naturally he doesn't tell the ranchers. What's in the mixture but he does give a few hints it's.

Charles spent his youth working on his father's ranch in california so he understands the importance of rain. Water crops means a healthy harvest which means enough food to eat. If you could find a way to prevent droughts there might never be another famine. Sure every attempt at actually doing it has been a pretty big failure but maybe charles can crack the code and if he can he can definitely make a pretty penny off the deal. So charles learns everything he can about meteorology atmospheric pressure humidity wind patterns. It's not a formal education. But he feels like he really has a knack for it and when he's done with his books. Charles starts experimenting. He climbs a windmill tower near his father's ranch and starts messing around with some chemicals to create his secret formula. I'm not exactly sure what these experiments are or what goes into his miraculous rain potion. Charles never tells anyone his secrets. But i do know that by nineteen for a twenty nine year. Old charles is ready to go public with his new technology. He plays some ads in the local paper calling himself. A moisture accelerator. His work isn't magic. He stresses he says quote. I do not make rain. That would be an absurd claim. I simply attract clouds and they do the

"Cmos such a pleasure to have you here today. Thank you very much sean. It's great to be here. Thank you and so you know you are In from the uk and a love that you know the work you guys are doing from there is translatable. You know the nih and there's a lot of learning that we could do in the us health system and overall just In general across the globe. But you know before we dive into the work that you're doing at impulse than amex tell us a little bit about you and what inspires your work in. Healthcare against cat is eight phil to work in because you cannot do well for our employees for shareholders for the people of the impulse team by doing good for the patients getting the best thing for the patient galloping damage what inspires every day. We have quite a lot of Gauged on our website where patients themselves are talking with them or they spontaneously talked about how we have been able to change. That lives in. This is very motivating. That he's Everybody wants to have professional fulfillment but seeing this patient at being able to play with the grandchildren go shopping. Were their partner win. The davis likud then is something we find very motivating. Yeah for sure. And it's just a an amazing time to be able to do it. We do in health care and so talk to us about your company and how exactly you guys are adding value to the healthcare ecosystem. Yes they now makes has developed. Ccm technology which is for patients in with caught fire. We had intervention had feigned grew. Having implantable device is for those patients that have exhausted financial statement by that not yet sick enough to qualify for a heart transplant or a full replacement off the palm of device. This is a lot of patience. Six or seven million patients globally. Roughly one one and a half in the united states and these the hatfield epidemic is growing fast the american heart estimates that is growing aspect four percent but he had a number of grocery four percent but he had are very valid our patients they can walk at most one flight of stairs. They can walk a thousand feet and then they stopped short of breath. They edit three from deep official daily life. They cannot go to church or the synagogue. They cannot go shopping. They cannot spend time with family went. We do is to try to help them to leave the latch that we have developed so extensive clinical trials and genetic development a device that makes them be to enjoy life again and we have immortal that the hope is here and i think this is how we think we're adding value now. We have also shown on many occasions that will reduce there okay. The frequency of their visits to the hospital the space course very much and so we save on resources. We have a detached of technology allows them to go for long without the pledge. Michelle we do. Take into account the economics. We actually value to the system but we also create value to the patients themselves by to join that lives. Now that's fantastic and simos so the so the work you guys doing. Obviously you guys have brought the technology to the us really globally. You're based in europe. But sounds like you're making a big difference here would you say makes. Ccm therapy just different or unique and what it's able to provide to patients show the communist based out of the united states and the technology brain development has been done in the united states. You jesse is unique is that we are helping people through a completely different way before People getting mushroom shorter treatment. Obviously everybody will exist for excitement before they concede that any device but instead of moving to the very invasive transplants ridiculous divides thinks that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars Ways for the patient we have stimulate or show. Take very unique concept we had. We had to develop survey stake in more than twenty years of research and more than obligations that basically trains the myocardium eight single it like when you go to the treadmill and you Start getting exercise overtime over the three months winter. You start feeling better. It's a very similar without device to very simple implant. It's now the fifth generation of the infants advantage simply for forty five minutes at basis typically. Go back out the same day at home and they don't even need anesthesia for implantation. Just like the dacian. This feeling better. They see the effect building up and This is what they consider. Unique is not only that it's a completely different not replacing the pump. Were just training the supporting the pump and training it to make able to deliver the blast at body needs but also that it's a fairly simple process. You know justified the five minute implant. The patient typically has to charge because we usually childhood by any to charge launch a week for forty forty five minutes and we have shown that more than ninety nine and a half percent of patients soundtrack. Because they see improvement cho- i would consider the uniqueness here is the concept itself which is malaysian. But from the patient's standpoint relatively big help for a relatively low invade not very invasive procedure and not quieting loss from this patient other than a weekly detach very good very good and is it charged externally or how how is it. It is a tax completely Just like your to say back. The judging and In new generations of the device which i'm happy to talk we are actually improving what we get out of. The device show not only the patients chancing but also devices being every week so we get out of the typical court lahore liberty three months in check your device which is just a bad into the basin. We have to think it through from the beginning in a way that is convenient to the patient inefficient for the healthcare system.

"And he swore that it had mccoy's branding on its ear and hogs were extremely valuable to the of the farming economy of the mccoy's so rand off brought charges against floyd hatfield and due to the statements made by bill stayton who was related to both families. The case was decided in favor of the hatfields the ruling further inflame the feud as randolph mccoy viewed. The outcome as unfair and in june eighteen eighty stanton was killed by two mccoy brothers salmon. Paris who were later acquitted on the grounds of self-defence. Wow that's just everything right like once. I think this and then the other side thinks that because they lost then they. That's i takes revenge and then they're like no no. There's this who lots going on there. Yeah but this debt. That was really. Why the mccoy's were upset The hatfields weren't really upset yet at this point well but except that they got they had well. Staten was yes related to both family. So maybe they sort of cared that he was killed but maybe it wasn't like a direct hatfield. i guess sure So it seems from that point. The feud had started At one of those things that happened before the feud it wasn't uncommon for hatfield and mccoy to have relations but after the feud started it was definitely looked down upon by both families and hardly ever happen. One time it did though was with john. E hatfield and roseanna mccoy after randolph. Heard of this union. He disowned rosanna. She went to live with the hatfields for a short time and then with their aunt and uncle on john's e was arrested. By the mccoys and outstanding kentucky bootlegging warrants. He was freed from mccoy custody. Only one rosanna made a desperate midnight. Ride to alert devil. Anse who used rescue party. Well the story go. She became pregnant with john's baby and hearing that she was pregnant. John's john's e did the only thing a man would do in this time is he abandoned her. No i'm just kidding. But he did abandon her hatfield and not only abandoned. Her left her for her cousin. Nancy mccoy who they got married later on. Roseanne is baby died before her. First birthday of the measles and rosanna died at the age of twenty nine. I suggest this is the romeo and juliet of the story. I mean i love it. I you can't. You cannot have a feuding family like this without the The romeo and juliet. I mean it's just so perfect that you would have a romeo and juliet story with this feuding feuding families. It obviously reminds me directly of romeo and juliet Of course But anyone's interested in midsummer night's dream the play within the play is based on pure missing. Bisbee which is the original greek romeo and juliet. I mean that's how far the star crossed lovers thing goes and there's a serious thing where they're like talking to each other through chiseled hole in a wall and like all this stuff like it's just such a classic story and to know that it happened in real life like still in that story. Romeo doesn't abandon juliet when when she gets pregnant. That's true it doesn't happen in pierre mississippi. Either they they. They don't movies with her with her cousin that you're so that's the real world part of it. Yeah yeah so in the eighteen eighties. It was kind of a thing to have a big election day. Party in in towns Now this particular town unlike We're going to talk about the twenty twelve history channel miniseries they d they depict everything Like there was an actual town and there was actually a like a bar. A saloon on. There wasn't either of those things yet. It wasn't established yet So but they would get together in the fields and have an election day party and in eighteen eighty. Two ellison hatfield was killed by tolbert farmer and bud mccoy This was on the kentucky side..

"I don't know how to describe what happened to me in a friend a few years ago other than to say that i can't really explain it but it changed me forever. My friend and i decided to go on a road trip through the south. We wanted to be spontaneous. Oh we didn't book any hotels or anything. We would just look for an airbnb or something like it to rent for a night when we figured out where we running up each day while one night we on our way to lexington kentucky and our tire went flat like nowhere in some small town that i'm not even going to name but just know that they were also kind. A local mechanic offered to fix it pretty cheap but it was getting really late so his sister Offered us a place to stay in her home and gave us dinner now. I know you're gonna say that. Sounds like the start of a horror movie. But i promise you everyone was really nice to us what happened. Was that night we were in the spare bedroom fast asleep. Some noise must have woken me up because it was quick and i was just awake fully awake not dreaming. I know i wasn't dreaming. I could hear little noises like cooling. And when i looked toward the noise in the corner i saw something that i know. I couldn't have seen but he did. It was a woman sitting in the rocking chair holding a baby. She was young and looked so she smiled at. The baby was giving the baby her finger to hold. I wanted to scream or shout or speak. But i was just so captivated by this vision. Nothing came out after a few moments. She looked up at me so sad and then faded away. I heard a gasp and looked over at my friend. It seems i had been shaking her awake and she woke up just long enough to see her fade away by the next morning. My friend had dismissed it all as a dream. I couldn't bring myself to ask the nice woman who is helping us but at breakfast. She told us the most amazing story. She said that before we move on from the area. We should visit the hatfield mccoy visitor area that you can see where some of the more famous feuds events happened and then she said the most extraordinary thing. This house is actually a part of the hatfield. Mccoy feud roseanna mccoy here with her aunt after falling in love with with john hatfield and getting pregnant.

Pro-Trump mob storms the US Capitol, touting 'Stop the Steal'

"So we walked through how we got here. But it doesn't quite do justice to that queasy feeling you got when you saw people marching through the halls of congress and breaking down doors when you saw crowds of people cheerfully waving their flags from the capitol balcony. So i wanna bring. Abc's chief white house correspondent. Jonathan karl and abc senior. National correspondent. Terry moran terry what did a day like. This mean for the united states of america. What do you take away from it. A dark day for the country and i think most people feel that way. This is one of those days that that that will remember and that will be remembered. I if it fades into the mist of history. I'll be surprised because it is something that's never happened this this mob. What does it mean it means. We got through this election. By the skin of our teeth they failed to attempt to obstruct the congress. This failed insurrection. Only underscores how crucial the task before us is for our republic. Joe biden one. Absolutely no doubt about that. But if we're not for the person of mike pence and mitch mcconnell maybe in a couple of other people you know. This mob might have represented the end of the democracy. That's what they wanted. They wanted to stop the certification counting of electoral votes certified by fifty states and give the election to their guy donald trump. Nobody knows what the hell is going on. There's never been anything like this. We will not let them. Silence your voices. we're not gonna let it happen one thing. I was struck by the chance. Fight for trump fight for trump not fight for america. This is a movement in our country and it reached a terrible bloody apex at the cap. Very jonathan karl. I mean you were keeping track of of not just congress not just washington but like inside. The white house has a switch flipped in washington when it comes to how people see the president and his his mission here. My sense is that we are looking at the end of the trump era. All i can say as count me out. Enough is enough of tried to be helpful. I think you saw a moment here. Where donald trump after a string of losses that led to this day loss on november third the losses in in georgia and the senate races in good conscious object to the certification of these electors not to mention the override of of of the veto. That happened On on new year's day You know the president has has seen a a series of things that haven't happened throughout his presidency. Which is losses at the hands of republicans. If you vote to overturn these elections. Wouldn't it be the opposite of what states rights. Republicans have always advocated for them. This would do m- the electoral college forever. And there were certainly a lot of speculation. i think we we had spoken about the possibility of donald trump going back to mar-a-lago and mounting a comeback or at least becoming a kingmaker in the republican party. I after yesterday to those who wreaked havoc in our capital. Today you did not win. Violence never wins. Freedom wins and this is still the people's house. I don't really think donald trump As republican kingmaker is is a likely scenario after after january. Six or after january twentieth. Does it go beyond that jump. Because you know you heard terry talking about mitch. Mcconnell in even mike pence these forces that were kind of constraining president trump. But how far could that go. I mean what kind of constraints could we see. On president trump going forward. It turned out that it was not his orders that got the national guard into washington. Dc you've got people resigning out from under him overnight. Essentially saying were sickened by all this. And now we're even giving talk about like the twenty fifth amendment. Is that a serious possibility. I there is We we have confirmed. There have been members of the cabinet. Who have had conversations about the twenty fifth amendment that would be effectively removing the president because he is mentally incompetent mentally unable to do the job. those conversations are happening and they're happening not just among the cabinet where it's relevant but also among The president's allies some of the president's allies on capitol hill But that's a. That's a really steep climb. That is an extraordinary thing. You would need in a vice. President can submit a declaration to congressional leaders saying the president is unfit for the job. The president now can contest that and if the vice president and cabinet persist that would lead to a vote in congress but that has never happened before under circumstances such as these now. That's a real long shot. But it just gives you a sense of where we're at and how how worried people very close to donald trump are that those conversations are in fact happening. I'm sure that there are responsible members of the cabinet. Who right now are thinking about. What are their obligations under the oath that they took. And they're not thinking about those things they should be dairy whose complicit in what we just saw i mean you know. I think that's the question that it's going to be weighing on a lot of people going forward here is. Is it enough to say. I condemn violence. But i do believe this. Election was a sham with without any evidence whatsoever like what are the legacies of essentially everyone else in washington stemming out of these events well i think as senator ben sasse republicans nebraska put. It lies have consequences. America isn't hatfields and mccoys. Blood feud forever. america's union. There are a lot of reasons to vote for donald trump. There are lots of reasons to vote against joe biden or against hillary clinton but to tell the american people lies That the election was stolen by some combination of software companies Hugo chavez out of the grave and i don't know the bigfoot that has consequences and to stir it up and drive people to the point of you're telling people they're stealing your country from you. They're stealing your country. They're going to take your guns and they're gonna. They're gonna slaughter babies and kidnap them and put them in a file rings and all the rest of it to wind people up like that. What do you think is going to happen seriously. Especially under the leadership of donald trump. Who has a gift for bloody language as a gift for stirring people up. But we're going to try and give our republicans the weak ones because strong winds. Don't need any of our help. We're going to try and give them the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country he's in march to the capitol and he said show you aren't gonna win by weakness it takes strength. Be strong up there. You know that whole rhetoric of of brutishness in violence and the fist is is the real power anybody who went along with that and plenty. Did the american people may very well judge you to be complicit but i would just say. I'm not as sanguine as john about this is all over. You know these kinds of movements sometimes take fuel from an event like this a lot of republicans. Now have a taste for this kind of this kind of politics. Look what happened in the house. Some of the people who breach the capital today we're not trump supporters. They were masquerading as trump supporters. And in fact were members of the violet. Terrorist group antifa more than half of house. Republicans voted to nullify the election after after the mob attacked the capital. That tells you that. I think this is a long way from being dead.

They've been on the road for over ten years exploring all the world has to offer and met while traveling impro- back in two thousand twelve working at a disaster relief nonprofit. They have been traveling together. Twenty four seven ever since along the way they started a travel blog called. Don't forget to move which over the years has become their fulltime job and now focuses on adventure travel and responsible tourism helping their audience. Experience the world in a more sustainable way. They also hosts a podcast nonstop bon voyage which is a comedic travel. Podcast where they talk about all things that can go wrong while on the road and today this shared with us some of those few things that went wrong while they were on the road such as having survived with farm animals in columbia and their adventures in their converted ban. Welcome deals and christine. Thanks so much for joining us today. Thank you so much for happiness having us so. I know you guys are big travelers. And i'm super excited to hear all your stories because i'm sure you have a really crazy ones from all the places you've been. Let's start with which one you think. Is the craziest driving story of them all. Oh we have definitely had a little crazy driving stories a lot of the time. It's not driving as self And the one that definitely comes to mind at the start would be al time. In northern colombia. Traveling at will play kabale. Bella which is pretty much a middle of norway pursuing. It's almost the northernmost point of south america and it's not a allowed to travelers go. They say it's kind of like the wild west of columbia so it's pretty far off the beaten track and even just to get it takes a bit of emission. He goes had couple of buses in a couple of different small mini vans. And then you finally get to a little place called arabia where you take you jump into a full and this is not your standard full by full. This is a four by four that has been so personally modified to have sate. Elise a dozen people in the back. Try like a pickup truck and the journey. There is four hours of bumping around in sloshing around in the mud depending on the season being crammed with about a dozen people into a full person seda and picking up a lot of livestock along the way like chickens and guards in all kinds of crazy things. So you are basically crammed in the back of this four by four with at least a dozen other people of course all locals. We were the only other travelers who went that far. I guess and then random animals start coming in so we had piglets on the floor. We had baby goats on the floor at a chicken on my lap at one stage. I think i had a baby on my lab. I wonder if we had a little baby. Sir whose baby was but there was a lot of south coming in and on our way back out was the same thing tons of livestock tons of animals just like feathers everywhere and we were leaving very early in the morning. It was maybe four. Am before it was even light out. And we were stopping at all of these farms in little houses along the way and we had some unexpected visitors strapped to the roof. We had three shoes. Desert tortoises will probably about six foot wide Honestly the biggest ever seen in my life and about five or six men were putting it on top of the roof. I don't know where it was going. The poll seeing but Yeah it was quite a wild ride. Yeah it was literally wild. Ride just filled with animals animal. The funny experience is that common for them to like four turtles or tortoise on the roof that he's definitely how i told us on the roof experienced but it is quite common for them to travel with livestock especially when you're traveling in rural areas in indigenous communities. Quite common for them to you. Know they got the coming from the local markets so they've got a chicken and it's tied up. They've got a guard or luke pig. Hug todd their fate name jumping the boss jump jumping the car and go back home. And that's fairly common. We they call it. Chicken buses in central america raisin. There's a lotta chickens on him. Where the animals with you for most of your trip or like how long were you with. The animals offset hotan. So this place. Here is is pretty oscillated. So this is a few rule. Sort of villages Affiliates little so to commune areas along the way but most of the people going from sort of point either point bay and they traveling with all that livestock eight a two they were bringing it back so yeah pretty much the whole four hours. We will sloshing around in the back of these full by four pickup truck with a whole bunch of animals and people just like one guy with a chicken. Walk it off but then one guy with tj can gets on so it's always balancing let made you choose to go there out of all the places since it's not a very typical worse destination executives and at that point we had spent probably Maybe a year in latin america. And we were just ready to get like pushed the boundaries. And get even far off the beaten track and just really wanted to go where we're not going to be surrounded by backpackers cause of knives and colombia and peru in those countries you kind of end up on the tourist trail and you just get stuck with me. No and it's great. You make a lot of friends that way. But you're kind of sick of just being surrounded by backpackers all the time. So we wanted to go somewhere where it's just all locals. We could really get to know the culture and just push boundaries basically and that seemed like the best option and it was an interesting experience. We're definitely the only travelers we saw their ended up sleeping in hammocks outside of this cabin thing in the wind and the rain and we just wayne in this hammocks is pretty intense but it was beautiful just super rugged pristine landscape out there right on the coast but still very desert and dry and yeah is really gorgeous and we'd heard that the junior was half the adventure and definitely was probably one of fiber journey stories that we tell because destination was out there. But you know we've been traveling for eight years ten years

So what's the deal with this new coronavirus strain in Adelaide?

"I'm health reported taken tyler. Opposition and journalist author norman swan. It's thursday the nineteenth of november. Big day yes. Big day especially for people in south australia where yesterday we were hearing that. Not only have a south. Australians going into an incredibly tough lockdown but a short one. we're also hearing the chief public health officer nicholas spirited talking about how this strain that circulating at adelaide ease different. It's shorter incubation period. People with it don't seem to have as many symptoms. What do we know about this strain in adelaide and it truly is different or if it's just looking like it's acting differently. This was said during the crossroads motel outbreak. In new south wales when the virus spread from victoria it was said there was a shorter incubation period. More likely to spread E- symptomatically and explaining why there was a really significant superspreader event in that hotel in new south wales. Now we've not heard very much about that since that was certainly at the beginning. Now the saying the same thing here. Now i've i've spoken to a couple of people who kind of know how this virus behaves and they wonder whether or not in fact what's going on is that you've actually got super sporting events and they're so significant the super spreader events. You start to wonder whether or not the incubation short and could be true. It's still not clear what the virus is. What the subset of the covid nineteen viruses. The has been a stream code in for three nine k which has been picked up in south australia. It's not entirely clear whether that's the form that circulating not that's one that's growing uk europe and really quite common there. It's on the spike. It's where it looks the so-called h two receptor which is how you get the lock and key mechanism going into the The cell and people have looked at various strains and wondered whether or not there are significant characteristic. So what what are they talking about here is to use technical terms a short replication cycle. In other words it replicates very quickly but it infects people and the more like. It's more likely to cause a symptomatic disease upfront. That's the kind of picture that i suspect. The chief health officer in south australia was Was communicating whether that's going to bear out when you look at this and when you compare the data from europe i mean clearly it's coming from the uk. Certainly this in forty nine k. is coming from the. uk. The have been suggestions in the uk that they're getting some short incubation periods viruses with a symptomatic spreads. Certainly you've got a lower mortality rate but hospitals are filling up. So i think this is a story that had to pan out but it's clearly spooked the authorities now. The you cannot separate the lockdown from the belief that this is a short replication cycle more infectious virus could spread he symptomatically. That's what they believe. You got to try and extinguish this virus. You've gotta get outside australia and the only way to get this virus outer and extinguish it. 'cause you don't have any anti viral treatments is by lockdown and stopping people from mixing and stop them sharpened quickly and stop the virus spreading. That's the way to extinguish the virus. I'm reminded you had james hatfield back in march if you can remember back. That far on the health report norman. And he made the point that the golden rule of networks basically the family trays viruses. is that if it looks like the virus is behaving differently. Ninety nine percent of the time it's actually because of the epidemiology or the way that the humans the house of the virus are interacting with each other so could not be possible that it's just the way were behaving rather than the virus itself. Yes exactly that's the point. I was making a few minutes ago. Which was that could be. Just had some really quite dramatic super spreading events that were worried about. Its pizza parlor. Four thousand people for goodness sake are in isolation although now it's the whole population that's an isolation you also could. Well be the the behavior. Rather suddenly an appearance of a new strain that scott these characteristics particularly when the strain that hit from victoria into new south wales there were saying the same thing and they went quiet on that because in the end i don't i'm not so sure that the virus that they got into new south wales was so terribly different from the one in victoria and i don't think people were arguing victoria that it had particularly unusual characteristics.

"News today of how protests in Portland, Oregon, have changed now that federal agents have backed off. Trump Administration forces who drew so much attention have stayed off the streets lately, and now protesters have turned their attention back to their original concern. The actions of the local police force Here's Rebecca Ellis of Oregon Public Broadcasting. Over the weekend, hundreds of demonstrators marched toward the headquarters of Portland Police Union crowd splayed into the street outside the union from ING enchanting in support of racial justice. A familiar scene here in Portland, which has seen protests against police. Violence continue uninterrupted for more than 70 days. Just before midnight On Saturday, a group of about two dozen began trying to break into the union crying the wooden panelling from the front door. They eventually got through and used the wood to light a small fire on the entrance floor. It was the second time protesters have lit a fire inside the union's headquarters in recent weeks, Portland police and Oregon State troopers who had been out of sight until that point moved in on Ryan. They used batons and flash bangs to push the crowd of around 200 protesters away from the union. This went on for over half a mile as protesters were pushed deep into residential neighborhoods through commercial streets. Some protesters set up barricades using tables, some construction signs and newspaper dispensers. Parents. Moses, black business owner in the area, drove over to help clean up. This does not have anything to do with the call. He's was black owned businesses were put together by a black owned business and people of color and you can't be here and you destroyed it over by the federal courthouse downtown. It was much calmer scene. Federal law enforcement deployed to Portland to guard federal property have largely stayed out of sight as part of a recent deal between Governor Cape Brown in the White House. Oregon State police now guard the building. Nearly two months ago. Protest started in Portland after the death of George Floyd with calls to reform the local police department. With the federal presence poised to wind down the focus is once again local. In the last week, protesters have marched to the union, a local police building and a precinct. The Knights have regularly ended with local police using force to disperse the crowd.

"What's up everybody is you and skipping meals David Hatfield joining this week is Tina mini everybody just Davis. Scoop and friend and SAM clayborn. We've got a great show for you this week we're going to talk about. The crazy crazy crazy deal about spiderman being exclusive to playstation. In Marvel's AVENGERS WE'RE GONNA flip through the August nineteen ninety issue of video games and computer. Entertainment. But I. Really all you need to know right now is that spunky to is finally finally coming out, September fifteenth just over month away I couldn't be more excited listeners and my friends on the show have long long heard me talk about how much I love love love spunky. Maybe my favorite game of all time cheese maybe I don't know why does it need sequel? Doesn't necessarily need one, but the like I, I. You know spunky. So brilliant and they've spent so much time making the sequel like I'm really excited to see you know how do you with with this one and what? During their, how deep they're going to get maybe they'll go so that they a lava world. You, what do you want different in this game? Necessarily different but I mean just play spunky I can't believe. We're still talking about this. You don't want the game he don't own a to do extra. This is the problem is that people like you demand sequels and they should be made everything was fine. I was I was never demanding a sequel I've been excited for the sequel though it was announced we've had to edit these episodes several times to remove your demands they're getting increasingly. Violent. My demand for this game increases. If you're if you're an Egyptian prime subscriber, you dame, it's eighteen minute weekly rant on spunky to yeah they go to edit editor. Yup you can download them. Eric while you're excited for this game looks like it has more digging. Know. It's all about systems. Interacting with each other in in unexpected surprising things on your quest to reach the end of the game. So I'm just excited for all the new stuff that they're going to add to the game. Off many many different ways to unexpectedly die during a I love spunky and. I was just joking about all that before I think the cool thing about spunky is the thing I like about Mario Brothers Games where it's like. So focused on secret stuff and as people discovered all the secrets. That that probably alone gave me hope that this game would just be like just full of like crazy cool Meta difficult things to accomplish. That that's why I needed a sequel, you catch all the seeking discover all the secrets you need more secrets. To. Shoot up date. They're like we added a bunch of secret stuff. That's the patch notes like that's the patch. This passes a secret. Good candidate for guides him. It is it is although it's kind of a it's really hard to write guides for Rogue Lakes because I'm you can kind of like classify like eventually with speeding this game became really interesting spunky because. You know there was like a type of orientation of the first level that like made sense to not restart on I think. That's really cool. Right. People basically start breaking the game to figure that stuff out but otherwise, you just gotta be like. You might see a snake. Not If. You know there's there's like a shortcuts to people could take that are built into the game that aren't yet I don't break the game. Yeah. You can tell people never to pick up certain weapons and stuff like that I. Think there is a There's an element to that type of strategy guide writing, which is interesting because there's there's a there's a public out there that I know people don't don't expect this. But it's true that just read from start to finish a game skied while they play it and I did that when I when I was a kid rock Tynan skied and didn't lessen my enjoyment of the Game I. Love The indepth page by page look at all the stuff in this game aspect that guy and people like that. So that's different from like a spunky guide readers like here's some tips. Good luck. And then apparently also. The Sony State of play today it was announced at Alan wake is coming to control DLC. Correct, but we don't have more information than that. Yeah. Honestly. I had like a I haven't been able to watch state of play in its entirety myself, but it was narrated to be my friendly gears. He makes an appearance and it has been long speculated that the DNC in meant in question would be across over with Alan. Wake. So this kind of confirms it but apparently, the trailer did not divulge much more about like. Easter kind of character or is this going to be like a playable character or villain may be and I? I guess I didn't catch this while I was playing control but I suppose or maybe I don't remember but I suppose we're a lot of references to a writer. So that's why we're the relations coming

"What's up everybody? Welcome ties you and game. Few team at Hadfield joining me. This week is Tina Amini deposes back. It's back does scoops. Johnson Davis Scoop and SAM clayborn. What's on your Hatfield today? I'm starting to the campaign The Game I was gushing about last week or not tunnel castle has been removed from the Nintendo e shop on switch even though it did nothing wrong. It's an amazing game needs to come back Switch so I'm starting the campaign. Eternal Castle did nothing wrong. Didn't show a bunch of blood or something like pixellated blood. It wouldn't I don't even think would have been red. Blood is pixellated I don't understand what that means but we do have a great show for you today. Lots to talk about lots of really fun. let's emails to get through. But I Tina. I know you've been working a lot on summer of gaming. Brigham and now Our schedules out in public. That everyone's gotten a chance to take a look schedule. It's all kicking off next week teen. Is there anything you want to like? Highlights or like make sure people are aware of when when when do people need to start tuning into our coverage? Absolutely I mean yeah next week June fourth but you know full disclosure. We reserve the right to move things around as necessary. I think a lot of people are you know making announcements and catching up with their own assets and their own team figuring out work from home scenarios. So it's important to for us to stay nimble. Which is what we've been doing as we've been planning this whole thing and making lots of shifts and turns but as far as highlights First and foremost is the first time that I actually putting on a press conference of our own and not just that. But we're putting on three press conferences. We're calling them. Aegean Expo That's gene fifth. June eighth June ninth. So it's all exclusive content. Some of it is actual game reveals Some of it is the developer interviews along game. Play that you're familiar seeing from us during normal three during normal June time frame but I think the other big thing to know is it's kind of impossible for us to be like completely transparent about everything that we're working on because we're still working on it so there's lots of other to come so it's as full schedule as we could get ready for. Public is just to give people an idea of what's to come in the show and get excited about things that they're personally looking forward to But lots of big updates like from blizzard and xbox and a lot of those a big people that you like seen games from had something here that I thought was really cool about this E-3 Is not just about the big press conferences. When you got three you discover games. You see a bunch of cool stuff on the floor. And that's the stuff that I feel like. We have the unique obligation to show people like. Yes you guys are. GonNa be able to see these big conferences. Were carrying them. We're going to be awesome stuff on those and those games are gonNA cover too. But I don't think there's anybody else that has the stuff that we released at Over the past couple of days are schedule has a something for everybody. It has games That only this people that like this show will like games that people that I would never play for everybody. And that's how he three should be seriously like there's a lot of people out there that are going to be. You know a watching these big stream streams this summer but like check out what we have. We have cool stuff to show a lot of lot of NEAT nexgen games. You've never seen before on that note. I can t something for the Games that we haven't talked about publicly yet Which is yeah. We're trying to be as inclusive as possible if you like. Vr Games we'll be VR games con content. There like any games will be plenty of indie games as well And we're creating a new segment around our dear friend Tom Marks where he'll be highlighting You know hidden gems essentially That you might not otherwise have been able to see if you were just paying attention to a big conference and that is a big part of like us being able to go to these events discovering games that are harder to Come above the fold of the big squaring drops and the big Sony drops. So it's going to be like his segment that he's creating on his own And hopefully identifying some some cooler lesser known games up post. He really is. I mean you know. Bow Ties and pies aside. He's still the very best even beyond that.

Lewis Hamilton on How His Formula 1 Career Led Him to Collaborate With Tommy Hilfiger

"Welcome to inside fashion at this week. We're sitting down with a race car driver Lewis. Hamilton is a six time Formula One champion but he has also started collaborating with Tommy Hilfiger. I sat down with Louis the day before. The collection was launched at London fashion week to get his backstory to learn how he became one of the most successful Formula One drivers in history and the approach he used in his collaboration with Tommy who made a very special appearance towards the end of our conversation to talk a little bit about what he saw. So here's Lewis Hamilton. With special appearance from Tommy Hilfiger inside Fashion Lewis. Hamilton how are you? I'm great value. I'm good thanks for having me tomorrow. Big Day it is has been a huge build-up as so much work has gone into to have in the show here in London. Which is really important for me to have and You know I get to be involved in so many of the elements in for example. Choose London as the launch of the two thousand Twenty Spring Collection Spring Summer collection and bring wanting to really highlight the fact that I am British. Yeah even though I'm working with US brand and you know see. Tommy you see a lot of the American flag everywhere and I wanted to remember that. A collaborative Both and also there's just some so much culture here and style and great autism so it was very important me to bring you cool before we go in depth on the collection. I wanted to go further back. Because you know the hard work didn't start with this collection and it goes back many many years to bring you to the position where you can even contemplate doing something like this absolutely so. I never interviewed a race car driver before so educate me and little. How how. How does someone become a race car driver? How does that even happen So I mean we kind of stumbled across it in the sense that so I started racing when I was eight K. My parents with us to live with my dad on the weekends. My Dad was you know this kind of Awkward Guys I. What do I do this little kitten? You know like a lot. Dads are and the thing that I loved loved. 'cause so as left car is crazy about cars as a little boys are in yeah and So that tons of toy cars. I used to Had A little radio control car and the actual like the initial point was I was full and our next door neighbor from the one bedroom. Flat that we lived in in Hatfield He built models of boats and he had built this radio control car. He was driving in cocking on the road and he came over and join. Do you WanNa go and I was like yes about two and I remember driving this thing and I was really good remote control car. Everybody was really quick. Yeah 'cause a big one that believe for thousands four year old able to control this little car with a joystick controllers and so then he bought me one and we started racing four hours racing against people of our age. Who's young establish Over ten years and and I remember to watch the racetrack. You stand on the podium to look down upon it and to to go with the Kind of defense to the over. I had to stand on like three D. A. K. cases and racing. These guys who you know. Spend their hard earned in to raise these. Cause and unbeaten imagine how angry these look. These guys were Still four yards five years beaten. Us Am anyways my dad than was like Hayes head to Akron Coordination's clearly very great and I think he was talking to someone. That's why didn't try to go when I was five. I went to Spain with my dad and we came across a go kart track and that was the first time I drove a car and again that was natural so I thought my dad bought me one from an old newspaper. The back pages was V fifth hand yet villain by like five. Six families really bent and crooked and rusty and stuff. My Dad resprayed woods Stuff like diy still like being Hewlett was and then we entered some races and we one from the one the fresh race. And I loved it. Some I if you do you keep working out at school will do whatever. I can't keep racing. We WanNa First Championship when I was ten and the rest is history silent. Us Thirteen by full monty. Youngest EVER TO BE SUCCESSFUL. Is that one day. We Start Recruiting People. That time right but now they do so. I was the youngest ever to be signed. And also you know. This sport never been diverse. Yeah was gonNA say because you didn't come from like a privileged background. It's a very expensive sport. It really is. So what was that like for you? It was? It was really for me as a kid I was. I was having fun in A. Yeah we go to school in my weekend. I'm going to my friend's house devastated by Rhonda Right and I loved it so much am but my dad was really hot for my family. My Dad remortgaged had to remortgage house. God knows how many times He had four jobs at one stage in the early stages which sounds crazy because there was no future plan for us you know but it was just hoping that we love doing but it was getting more and more expensive How can I? How can I make money to pay for the tires this weekend? How can I keep the call going? Nowhere weekends wells like aside to do a race number desert. I'm I'm sorry. I've done the money this weekend. So He's been the the one of the most infamous stepmom. She's coming to a new relationship as a kid there and she gave up her life. Saving and belief and the commitment was just. It's so special to the real story is not the success that I've had that that people from working in a working class families can really relate to dance. Who Don't know what to do with his. You see people out there today. Support naked on the side of football pitches the same the same thing and there's not a lot of Jarvis data have that background so as the Honda to a lot of people to relate to. But that's the one. I'm trying to make sure that people know because we came from nothing you can do it with a lot of hard work and of course you've got to have fortune on the way in the sense of meat if I didn't meet the boss of the four one team a win of signed and without that signing I would have made it because we would add money. Have you seen cool runnings? Yeah Yeah of course. You know my favorite that took place in Calgary. Yes I grew up in. Calgary did yes. I was there for Olympic no way where the Jamaican bobsled team shown. Yeah Wow and I got two weeks off of school does those. I was in the opening ceremonies. Actually no way so I spent the whole and we were obsessed with that to make him pops team no way. Yeah the the W tops. 'cause I was I was like I don't know in one thousand nine seventy five thousand nine hundred eighty eight. I was thirteen years old but yeah I remember that team. Why Cool runnings? I'm just remember watching cool. Runnings Is My favorite movie and causes. So just the most relatable story that had as a kid so I always relate a lot my life to that movie casino. They arrive this rust bucket at the top of the hill. For the first time they put out and everyone everyone goes quiet and I always relate to light me. My Dad arriving you know would race track the race rapid he would say with trump's because of you know what we have these great close the 'cause shoved Shoved in the back of the boot of vodka and we be picking up on the floor and it looks doesn't look good and A lot of people looking us like what they doing here. You know because again. It wasn't a diverse group. Is it always been a white dominated sport however there was in in the early stages there are there were some other families are trying but they would have they run out of money but So a lot of that you know we just did our talking on the track as they did in the Post said they kept. They didn't win over the nitty. Did they narrowly people's Hopkins? Yeah they did. But you've you've gone on and you become you know without exaggeration. A living legend in your field six F one titles the first one at the age of twenty three youngest ever at the time. What what did you learn about achieving success at such a young age at such an elite level? What does it take? Yes you had some lock. You had clearly got a gift incredibly supportive home environment but at the end then again it comes down to your dedication and and then the focus on what you wanted. Yeah talk to me a little bit about that. It was really difficult out. Search the journey. I think people generally seem to own see the tip of the iceberg. Don't know if you've ever seen an iceberg unknown. How big is beneath the huge? Yeah and there's a picture I found that shows you the success one sees this little bit on the top underneath his world however is so you know. I'm people tune in today and see someone that's one times in the championships and 'em probably not fully aware of how it's taken me years Windows Eight. Danton pro to those twenty two and when I got two phone one so the build up to it. It's just not prepared. You prepare to race. Don't get any preparation tons of media training. You don't get prepare repression tons of what you know. No-one said this is what's going to happen when people start seeing on TV. And that because that's a real shock to the system and Am working no this when you work with a big station when his thousand people behind you working to make your decisions out on the track impact every single one of those you know so if you're selfish Choices and you make mistakes and crash. Everyone feels it. Sure there was a it was a lot of pressure but And again being that we came in every conversation so you the first year the first back from one driver. This never been here again. No diversity in it's only me my dad really people of Color in the in in this which is quite felt alone. A little bit in that sense But it was a great platform for us to do something great and

"What's up? Everybody welcome Digesting Games. Muros Daemon Hatfield joining this week. Is Tina Amini. We switch seeds. Okay and Jefferson Davis goop now. I'm all messed up and Betty and we've got a great show for this week. Big Show show so much talk about Next Gen console features. We're GONNA talk about a new mortal Kombat collection. But I sam is something you'd like to share. I don't know if I have something that I'd like to share. Keep hearing every week on game scoop that if you turn on recurring segment your final fantasy seven game and hit a button. It tells you where the heck to go. I'm just going around here in this game. There's no door anywhere I know what the heck to do. So what's the tip it on the original game you would hit select. But I don't know what he's pursue I think now there's a little arrow on my guy and then it highlights exits isn't there we'll be era. I don't have have to believe we say bleeping You can't even you know it's so blurry that's fine inside okay. Well we believe you. I'm we're glad that you can finally are you in disc to navigate around. This is why you wanted to switch to or not. There's so many things going on. This is very helpful. Thanks everybody nobody we did it and thanks for nothing game scoop we told you twice. Yeah well until somebody tweeted at me I remember see. There's a thing that happens is called game scoop and show Amnesia and everything we talk about on the show. I at least don't remember we just scout right after this. That's the thing with some off with the version of it. I get is people like tweet me some some funny quote or something that they like from the show and then I'm like what's that and they're like you said it my. I don't have any memory of that. What happens with that too is that it's usually something that I said when they say that to you and you're like I definitely remember saying that I'm like I said all right? Let's get into it. Let's get into it next. Gen Consoles cels their top of mind with everyone. Everyone's excited about him. I like him Your for them. Yeah you think they should happen. Has Several of them at home. How he doesn't they were action? Our friends over at Games Industry Biz ran a survey of eight thousand gamers aged eleven to sixty four across Germany Spain and France and Italy asking them what next Gen console feature is most important to you to the people that took the survey. And we've we rent service similar GM. But I thought this is interesting. It's a pretty good sample size. Eight thousand people in the in in Europe. What do you think is the most the most wanted next? Gen Console Feature Agra compatibility roller. It's not I think that was our whole the result when we were in that poll on our homepage also We Will Dan Stapleton random feature around how backward compatibility is basically the trend for next Gen. It's become the standard was subscription options service on there. That was not on there. It's gotta be no it's gotta be like power it was it was better graft who can forget better graphics there's the fullest hold on. No no I just think it's amazing that people could look at AAA Games today and be like insistent. I just can't can't we can't get here fast. No but you gotTA gotTa War. No but look. That's the kind of quote in like ten years gets brought backup like think about. Ps Three Games compared to now and like there's probably some from games give two thousand eleven. We like Video Games canton. Don't look at Asai said before era is why we need games to look better than this and I I mean they came. Looks Amazing still. There's handles on like a big part of it is like frame rate right right. So it's like maybe in level of detail and quality to your earlier point maybe we've picked out a little bit like the. PS three xbox one the big debates where like the relief relief finite amount of differentiation between graphical fidelity. So maybe that's just a carryover. Yeah well better. Graphics was far and away the most desired next Gen console feature feature in this survey the only other feature to get anywhere close to that level of consensus was shorter load times Eight K. Resolution was less important than motion motion controls backwards compatibility and ability to play physical games so they want better graphics but AK resolution they. Yeah uh-huh deprioritization. Just means you have to buy another expensive television. I don't even have a fourteen. TV At motion controls were important to forty nine percent of all survey gamers and fifty ninety seven percent of console gamers. That's weird really a new over that I thought so too must controllers like the playstation four controller that have slightly augmented motion controls. Charles like those are almost entirely abandoned. Now there's like an spiderman it had a little bit of that but like it's never it's never used anymore. It's really funny to go back and play like older like like when that was a newer thing and launch. PS Four Games. I think it's uncharted for where it's like. You shake the controller to throw the grenade and they have the They always added balance. Beams in every game. Amy Add balance. Meet Him. Yeah didn't need that. But you know you gotta have the controller valid on it Backwards compatibility what's important to forty eight percent of all surveyed gamers and fifty nine percent of the the console crowd and playing physical Games was important to forty seven percent. Surge surveyed gamers fifty eight percent of console. Gamers the situation for backwards compatibility where when when it was taken out of consoles a lot the reason ing was always like we have data and nobody uses it or it's actually it's only the parents correct career. It's a selling point for the parents. Oh they'll get to use all their old games. Okay I can justify the or for a kid to say that to the point that it is such a Trojan horse thing. I don't think a lot of people keep their collections. Enes and Dipak in they. Just don't because we're on Vega cops. I've talked about this on skip before but the backwards compatibility on xbox xbox live ecosystem is such an underrated. Did it's so incredible like those games the fact that you're not booting into some separate weird. Og xbox or xbox three sixty interface. It's like those games are just there and you can buy them and play them like you can buy symphony of the night on Xbox one it's like you're sx. I bought sx three. I just had a desire to play it ten dollars. It was installed and played. It was all beautiful like cool. My Hat's off to them for that. You can donate your former councils who need those anymore. Yeah I'd I just I just do it. A normal person does and they're just sitting under arrest office like this you can just bring them in and put them under your desk. Yeah that's my new under the bed. Yep to just hide it. They're just storage. Now Y- true I was just. I was stunned by how different. These poll results are from from what we would find if we surveyed the audience I think graphics is that it's been that that's been the Super Nintendo. It just sounds so funny to me more pretty better graphics wchs load times like are they really. That long like both Sony and Microsoft are talking about load times and demoing them and then it was. It pulled second here behind graphics. Yeah exactly bullets. It's because they've been talking about them. It's almost like a marketing trick. I I would assume but it. It's dependent on the game in terms of times. Yeah Control was pretty insane. I mean I play mostly I have the choice. I play most P. C.'s. So maybe I'm not I don't know how long. ps four times are for a typical game. These days The lowest priority features were virtual. You'll reality compatibility and hand-held motivational. Sorry Nintendo. Yeah it's cool that after you know I guess seventy years of area or so of video games existing. We're finally solving load time. It's been a while I like. We got through all that stuff though graphics will we're we're still tweaking. I understand that's an ongoing issue. We're almost done with graphics load to previous generations. But but we're GONNA fix ex- load times. That was just low on the list for a while. Low Times weren't a problem. At the beginning. It became a problem two decades.

The Legend of Coach O

"Why this much emotion coach such a big game? They beat US eight years. I got tired of your no so I mean it was time I told the team tonight. We taught allied. If you follow college football you probably know that voice. He belongs to a guy who's loud road tough in might be more suited for his job than anyone in America. LSU head coach at Oberlin today ahead of Monday's national championship game against Clemson. We tell the story of a man who seems like he was built in a lab to coach football in Louisiana and why despite that. It's actually surprising that he ended up there at all times. It's Friday January tenth this is espn daily presented by Dell Small Business David. How's it going is going quite it will mean a thank you for having me David Hale writes about college football for ESPN so your story is about coach? Ed Osea Ron really the legend coach. But I want to start by talking to you about perhaps his most noteworthy characteristic which is of course his boy to get to where you wanna go see like you have to go undefeated you have to beat Alabama you have to keep on going and then you have to win Sec Championship then you got football playoff oilfield so if you start thinking about my favorite thing in the World David is being in a room and watching someone here at for the first time because because it really never fails to shock. Anyone who's hearing we knew was going to win that game. Today we started Monday. NO-GO windows gape go. Don't you want to write his autobiography. Just so he can also do the voice over work. What's on the menu at the odor on household today? What are we got cocoa? My mom made a special gumbel but it was on. We'd better win the game. It would just be so wonderful. One of his first jobs was at Arkansas. As assistant strength coach the players there thought he was pranking them they. They didn't think that anyone actually talks that way. And they couldn't make heads or tails of what he was saying. Either it was. He's just he would get excited and start saying things with this gravelly Cajun accent and then he pointing the direction and they would just go do whatever was in that direction because they had no idea what he he was saying but he was saying it loud enough that they were afraid of him and it was only after like he'd been on the job for a month or two that they were like. Well I you know he's kept us up a long time. I guess that is his voice. We love the voice. Everyone does now but it at times says constant now. Yeah he's coached in some places that are not Louisiana. Yeah everybody talks about how he is Phyllis you but he was in Miami he was in Syracuse. He was in USC and and his last stint in USC he came on to replace place Lane Kiffin as the interim coach there had some success at USC. And I think there were folks there who would have loved to have given him the fulltime job because he had that success. But there were also folks Has Been reported by numerous folks I think including Bruce Feldman that the voice was one of the reasons you couldn't hire him as US's sees coach because you're the voice of the program. You're the face of the program you're the identity of the program and that's not USC right that's not La. Look at how he talks. He's not the model of USC so we can't hire them and there's a lot of folks at USC or probably kicking themselves for that exact thought process now. Well the voice is a perfect fit for Lsu else you I mean just about everything about co is a perfect fit for Lsu. It's almost like if you reverse engineered a coach based on Louisiana Anna Football. It would look sound and act like him and he's got roots right. In the state of Louisiana. He is from the Food Perish. It's bio country. Outside of New Orleans. His Dad grew bon shrimp boats ways just every bit the sort of central casting version of what we think of as Louisiana. You know if you've watched waterboy you kind of have a rough idea of what I think it owes runs. Background is one of the great anecdotes that his mom gave me. Okay so he was in second grade and broke his leg and the doctor fitted him for a cast. It went from foot all the way up to the upper thigh and he picked up some trudges out there and play football on crutches and about every week or so she would have to drag him back into the doctor's office to get fitted for a new cast because he would get it so dirty and muddy and mucked up from playing football in a full leg. CAST I'm sorry they let a second grader. Played football. I don't know that even let is the proper word there so much as he just went and did it So he kept playing in high school then college got to high school and he was a full grown man from day one one and he was a big guy and went to college as a defensive. LINEMAN ended up at Lsu for a year and hated it because for the first time in his life football ball was hard he was not having immediate success. He was not playing routinely He was being forced to go to classes. He wasn't super eager to go to and and he left. Lsu went back home and thought maybe that's the end of college football. And I'll go get a real by job like my dad and I'll go work on a shrimp boat and turns out. You may be surprised to learn that working on a shrimp boat is much less fun than in football And so I think that was you know when you talk to his mom that summer after he left. Lsu went back home to work. Real jobs was was a lot of ways sort of a turning point for coach. Oh and that he got a taste of what life is like when everything is not being handed to you to. How did he end back in football? He decided he needed to go play football again which meant he had to go back to college which was not really his favorite thing but he decided to go to northwest Louisiana State. That's where he finished his career and then went looking for football coaching jobs and the first job he could find was as a strength coach and soccer. Yeah shocker this. Like three hundred pound beast of a man finds a strength coaching job. And the job. Java's with Arkansas. Ken Hatfield to coach the time Ed walks in. And he's this beast of a man and he's got that voice and he's so excited and he's like I don't know if he can do this job but he sure looks the Bart's so we're going to hire them and tell you ended up getting into coaching. He worked at Arkansas for a little while and I think he really wanted to to do something. More than being the strength coach the ends up landing miraculously enough at the absolute heart of college football in the nineteen eighty s and early nineteen ninety S. Which is at the University of Miami? They celebrate a Miami the Hurricanes Complain and the coaching on the same staff. Tommytucker Ville tougher telling me they were. They went down to Key West on vacation. You want one year and they're in like this Nice restaurant having dinner and get the talking about football technique and overrun so excited about it. He likes slides tables out of the way and gets down the three point stance and he's trying to explain technique to to top Ville and he's like pushing tables and chairs out of the way and like diners are just looking over gawking. At what the heck is is this man doing your. But that's just sort of the approach that he brought and I think his time at Miami really offered him an opportunity to prove that ed behind that bluster and the Raspy gravelly cage invoice that there is a guy who really knows a heck of a lot about football. How did it go for him? In Miami off the field not great. He was someone who went out a lot. Drank drank a lot and the things that you could get away with when you're twenty northwestern Louisiana you don't get away with as a coach on the staff of one of the premier programs grams in college football. And so you know the story that really I think ended up up ending his career involved him being a bar. T was thrown out of the bar for being too intoxicated and he was not happy with that and ended up getting into a fight and legal proceedings. Happened in that essentially was the end of his time in Miami but I think it was also sort of a wakeup call for him so when he gets away from football ball it was a lot of ways probably very much like when he went back to work the shrimp boats after leaving. LSU Is that he kind of realized. This isn't the life that I want. This isn't who I WANNA be. I don't think that he shies away from those. Oh stories now. He's still shares them with current players in in the way of trying to relate to them and going through it and a lot of ways has probably been in what pushed him to turn things around and become the person that he is.
