You're going to go to break the tie here. You all done. We want to We went to Definitely go one more We're thinking possibly to while my wife's always know voting the idea of you know when ABC twins so she decided to get it out the way But Yeah we definitely want to You know we went to have at least one morning possibly to I got four myself. We had three boys and then got the girl on the fourth. Try if not. We'd have five by now but we got a grabs places. Miami or a handful. Now I can imagine that you You do everything you do and still be able to you know. Maintain about the work is I mean. That's a that's a you know. It's a big. It's a big thing. They accomplishment really right. If you could please take a minute here just to hit my listeners with a little bit about your background what you do. My name is Carl Heinz I'm currently playing basketball professional basketball player playing overseas in the early I play for a team called CESCO Moscow currently living in Moscow Russia With my family I've been playing professional basketball now for twelve years For those that don't know the Euro League is essentially the second best basketball league in the world. it's essentially the NBA Virgin on the European version of the NBA For people that I guess say familiar names. Luca Danni each Two years ago came from the League. There's a lot of you know big name players Beca Canada they have come came from Europe or vice versa. That are playing over We travel out to play some of the best teams in the best cities Whether or not as in Greece or without Madrid Barcelona And like I said I've been in. I've been living out for the past seven years. Yeah that's very cool. Kyle and I know you've had all these experiences. How about. How old were you when you first became a dad? Had it becoming a father kind of change your perspective on life. I became a dad at the age of twenty nine It it it literally changed everything I always say that being a parent or becoming apparent is the most self listing that you can possibly do Because suddenly you know it's before it was more or less you know about you know you or your wife or you know just individual and now it's it's more about the kids about children You know my day is pretty much surrounded by by their debt. You know whatever they WANNA do. We kind of know plan our days around that which is not having any other way out of the biggest lesson and also giving opportunity kind of realise. What's important life You know having kids having my family quotes especially you know over here You know being Here in Russia and Moscow. We don't you know. Our secondary family are the primary family members with us. It's just us so you know it gives us opportunity to kind of grow with strong bond together. Kind of you know Grow a relationship than I guess you would say. Possibly we were living living back home states. Yeah well said and what was the transition like for you to add to move to Europe and are you like. What does the school system like? I know your kids are a little young yet for it but What type of schooling do they have for the American families that live over in Russia Initially in the beginning just for me individually was It was a little bit difficult transition. just coming from a completely different culture Learning different language You know trying to understand a different way alive and then also just the whole isolation factor of it Initially when I came for the first You know I five or six years. I was alone by myself It's a my wife came over so just you know kind of you know having that I'm a big family so a lot of friends are starting to get used to being alone and kind of you know trying to use that time wisely But when my wife game Literally we're just talking about now. She was over here on literally less than thirty days and we found out she was pregnant. So like it kind of initially had used impact on us And my kids. I mean Moscow. Surprisingly enough is nothing. Like what you see you on CNN. Or what you see the rocky movies or no all the no John wicked all that stuff Let's complete opposite. Moscow is probably one of the most family friendly place was most kid-friendly places that I've ever seen Everywhere you go every restaurant you go to they have a kid space they have a play space. Have entertainers there the balls all the shopping centers? They have like floors dedicated to kids. Play spaces you know. They have a huge indoor. I guess you're saying that States. Almost like chucky cheese like luxury chucky cheese type type type of place bases Here in Moscow in his beautiful so my kids they enjoy it We live in a apartment building where there's a lot of international people a lot of diplomats a that other athletes live here so just downstairs they have a a. I guess a nursery or almost like a kindergarten Nicole. Joe's guard gear my kids. They go half the English and they do. Have they rushing so we're trying to get them exposed to to to learning Both languages and also get their kind of their ear under my exposed to Learning multiple languages like many kids here overseas in Europe and in Russia. Do Yeah. What an important skill to have to and that'll be very valuable to them growing up so I I shouldn't expect Ivan Drago to meet me off the plane right. No I didn't own and he's the opposite of you. If you ever have opportunity to travel to Moscow I would say definitely come. I mean it's definitely one of the most beautiful cities on the entire world. I mean like I said it was probably the most surprising factor when I came here. I was expecting you know all the you know everything that we heard going up but it's been completely opposite. Yeah you know what I'm curious about. Kyle is as far as the holidays. I know certain holidays like Thanksgiving Halloween or like unique to the United States. While you're over there do you kind of keep those traditions in your family. Is there anywhere over there. Where any of that stuff celebrated. So we're we're part of a huge international community here along with the you know the players on my team the players from other teams So we try to keep those traditions alive especially because we want our kids to experience that we don't just because they're living abroad. We don't want them to kind of miss out on opportunities so one of the things we did like we kind of worker. Straighted During Halloween. We have a Halloween party every year. And my wife and my wife is a event planner. here So she plans a big Halloween Party where we had ELSA. We had no decorations. We had all different types of stuff for the kids to kind of get a chance to enjoy and then with a rest of my teammates and some of the other residents here in the apartment building. We kinda work Granada's almost like a trick or treat type of things that kids could knock on the doors and we kinda give them the experience that that Those type of things in the same with Thanksgiving Men with Christmas and stuff like that and we tried to know. Make sure that That they get opportunity to celebrate holidays and have opportunity to you. Know had those experiences because he knows we know as a as foreigners living here Sometimes that can be the most difficult part. Yeah very cool and I know you're you're early here. The kids are young. What was so far. What type of disciplinarian are you as a dad? You spank your timeout guy. How do you handle discipline kind of the I I guess my me and my wife we kind of do the good cop bad copper? Say so it's up And y'all I tend to be the proper for most of the time I think it's just because You will my job. I travel a lot so you know my wife. She's there so she's kind of like you know the I guess you could say the the more disappeared disciplinarian but like you said we we we what we try to do? Most of that on the whole time out. They did early but we basically to explain to the to my kids. You know Why they're doing it. Why why they can't do it In this Kinda. Give him an opportunity to understand right from wrong. I think that's the biggest thing for me to kind of get that from early age. No No to understand why they're doing what they're doing is wrong so they can understand why it's wrong so that they won't make that same choice again. Yes very well said and I and like you said earlier there. It's just you and your wife out there together. Reason the kids from me. My parents both passed away before I had kids. My Wife's parents are divorced and they're not involved the door radio. It's just us together. Sometimes that could be a blessing and sometimes you can be a curse of what what what was kind of like your family especially the.

What was kind of like your family and especially like what was your wife's family's reaction to finding out that you guys would be moving over to Europe. The embraced it. They actually loved it. I think one of the best parts about me leaving overseas in our family living overseas that gives our family A reason to travel You know probably if I didn't play over here. I'm in Russia in Europe. None of our family members are probably have passwords so it gives them you know a great opportunity to now only on you know. Allow them to experience other parts of the world But also you know like I said build on new experiences a bit on new memories together so we try to make it a point to try to get Our family members out here For different holidays. Or you know different things that we have Just so they can kind of get a chance to experienced anything like I said. It's memories that we're not only growing together but also yeah that's awesome. Kyle and obviously the death of Kobe. Bryant sent shockwaves throughout not just the basketball but the entire world response. What was the response over there? In Europe the European League have any type of all tribute to Kobe. How is it handled over? There was literally coming off the when I got the news and immediately odyssey the just the kind of devastation in all my teammates faces in everybody in our our organization I'm illegal my wife Anything else started calling. Call my friends back home and it was being Kobe. Bryant means a lot to a lot of people especially international. I think he was a true own. Spokesperson Especially for the US Globally When it comes to apathetic You know he had A. He had a huge man accused lot to a lot of people Just because he no he was He was very well verse He's he's he's multicultural. Speaks a you know a a bunch of different languages? I think a lot of people were kind of relate to them late to him The early I did a bunch of different things. We had a moment of silence Each team we were the twenty four Twenty four shirts in in memory of imminent and the rest of the people that lost families We also did The Twenty Four. Eight southbound tribute sec like many of the special teams. Do in in even still right now. They're still many tributes going right. Now we play the game yesterday and Their team had a chicken in every team that we played so far has kind of tried to honor him Honor him in in the rest of the people that have arrested. Bakers have also lives in their own special way. So you know whether or not as you know people Ryan shoes or wearing t shirts or social media policy is is you definitely see it The huge impact that he's had throughout the world. Yeah I think one of the most important parts of his legacy or who he was is that he was a you know a first last father all the way father who was so important to him and right now. I mean in the United States were facing a fatherless crisis. We have way too many kids that are growing up without a father in their life. What is it? How is the family? Units over in Europe has composed over here and they having that similar crisis where. There's a lot of kids growing out of DAD's you don't see that over there as much. I think not as much I think you know. Generally the the biggest difference between a European culture in the United States cultures that you know normally when you're eighteen seventeen eighteen years old. You know your parents like you know you going your own you know you. You know your drought at House trying to kick you out of house possible and it's a little bit different here and you see You know you see families stick together a lot longer. You see kids still living their parents homes upwards until twenty or thirty until they marry until they had kids or even still you know you you see no groups of families You know whether or not the mother the daughter the brother Along with their wives living in apartment complexes living together. So I think here it's a it's a bit more family oriented Bennett is in a state versus like you said you have a lot of a single single parent households Because of the high divorce rate or because no Just because of the culture or different things like that but I think here family sticks together a lot longer and it's more of a family a family environment. Yeah that's awesome to see and Kylie no one of the things that we all struggle with. Dad's is the technology. We're all battling against it because it's hard to kind of lead by example anymore. Because I know myself just from doing what I do. I'm constantly using the phone or some type of form technology and I'm trying to tell my kids not to do it so I know your kids are young yet. It's for this as well but they already swiping screens. Are they involved in the in the analogy? A what is it like over there? Everybody the same thing I mean. Yeah my daughter is knows is better with my iphone and IPAD. Im and she's three years old. So I mean this is just the world we live in right now. You know the we grew up with a lot. Different toys a lot different. You know technology less type things and you know the opposite. Everything she does is on the IPAD and even when she goes to school you know she's three years old and they're doing everything on a smart board doing stuff on a computer you know. They're doing stuff one. You know doing stuff when youtube educational video so we try to find a happy balance. Where with the kids Week technology is so big. That's the way we communicate with family members because we're Brooke so obviously technology with facetime and skype and everything is like really big. Russ but we try to. Have you know our hours out of the day? We're eating dinner or together where we just don't have any. We don't have any technology to kind of have the happy balanced Were you know the away returned? Tv off and just so we can actually compensate more. Actually ignore them not to be. So did you know did it. Technology for all of us and it is an addiction. That's for sure had your kids. Have they been to the United States yet or have? They spent their entire lives so far in Russia. No so both my kids were actually born in the United States. so they came over afterwards in a while you're playing And we spend generally we spend ten months out of the year I spend time with out of the year in overseas And then I'm usually home for two months My family's usually here I will say a out of the ten months that usually here about eight eight eight months And then they go back home so generally they ate my wife and my kids they They kind of have be balanced But seeing no no the state in the eight my my daughter now he definitely No recognize the difference. He talk about you know her whole New Jersey and hurt delays in New Jersey. And everything like that. So she recognizes the difference since he's like we already booked a trip for them to go home in April and she's like Oh. I can't wait to go into airplanes. I can go home and I could see Nanna argosy GRANDPA and could see everybody so she definitely at the age now. She's starting to realize it the difference between the two which is pretty cool. Yeah and that's all see I'm speaking to you from Jersey today here and It's pretty cool. I imagine a big benefit to your kids growing up to have that a multicultural multi language benefit. That will be. What about for yourself here Kyle? We're about a month into the new decade here. What kind of goals as the happy self here for the future number one I think The the passing of Kobe. Brian definitely had a huge effect on me One of the things I notice about illnesses to his his balance of white how he was able to be such a great As well. They're a great entrepreneur Do all these things but yet state still be a great father. You know he was always know at all. His children stuff is daughter stuff. He was always very supportive. Very attentive You know to to to to their things and I think for me as a father and as an athlete you know. We're always taught at athletes to be married to our sport or Mary who are crap. And that's the reason why we're so successful at what we do and sometimes our families and our kids kind are the are kind of the ones that have to sacrifice you know they take the brunt of that sacrifice because of art because of my my athletic career. I remember I think it was ultimate right. I think he said that his daughters. I worry for by daddy in desktop. And you know this because no we're always traveling stuff like that so I think for me. My biggest goal in thousand twenty Is trying to find a happy balance so where I can be no more attendant. Why can still be You know involved with my career You know evolved in things that Basketball takes me athlete. Then also be very active in my children's is Especially oversight over here overseas in trying to be more present In the things they were just sometimes. It's not easy but I'm trying my best and I think that's why my biggest goal in two thousand twenty. Yeah that's good stuff you touchdown and a little bit here but the last thing I wanted to ask the data. Get on the PODCAST. What type of advice do you have the new dad or for that about the father? Who's out there listening? I think my my my lights I tell. Everybody is number one Enjoy the moment in staying in the present Because you know as you in as many parents note these these this time goes by so fast I remember my my dad and everybody stadiums like no. I feel like it was just yesterday. Were not years old. Even when you're old you ran diapers and I feel that way now even though my kids still young but we look at pictures and videos. I'm like wow like they've grown so much over the course of three years so I think that's my biggest advice. Stay President and enjoy the moment. Take take as many photos and videos as possible Because IT GOES FAST. You know kids. They grow by his growth acid. This time goes by fast so I said embrace of moment and enjoy the moment. I think that would be my biggest vice. Yeah very well said. Love the message. There's been an honor for me. I gotTa say karl-heinz Your First Class five all the way and thank you so much.

But I watch them every week, and I'll she's like Amarah or early or somebody like that do something in a located implement Bank of your game in try to learn how to make yourself a better player as interesting copying the best out. There. Was there someone that you kinda emulated either growing up or while you're playing at NC state? Not really I mean, always like those fast. I never like when damping Tom was in college. Love my left Aric article, but a younger kid out my favorite running back with worked on. So I was like work done a very Anders. I'm not sure if my game translates thought, maybe my toughness may be but I love of God. Yeah. And he seemed to be coming into a nice situation that had opportunity, and that's the key. You know, having worked with players as a team executive in agents. Always like where do you where what team do you end up on in? What's the opportunity in new head opportunity? Habur -tunities with colts. Now must be a great experience and must be kind of a neat thing to be playing alongside Andrew lock right behind him on the on this on the field. Oh, yeah. No. It's a it's a really great experience. I've had some great opportunities on the field and hope that made the most of them, you know, in the NFL and a lot of times, you only get one opportunity to cash in hoquiam Bill Alanna everyday. I'm waking up a best support kind of doing that trying to do that. And Andrew luck. I mean, I don't really say much about it will probably the smart Spurs I've ever met on the field. Just a he's a really great guy. And a really great guy that you want to be your later. Yeah. I mean, I know his family. Well, can you share any insights with my here's got the book club? And he's always interested in things outside of football Z share that with you. Do you get involved in that at all? Actually, Andrew very humble guy. Actually didn't even know he had a book club. I Monday just scrolling on I guess, my discover paid saw Andrew book club like look that was like, wow. So I've one wondering about Andrews enters a real private person. But I think enters the real professional enough in some really will on and off the field and in a Priscilla. So I think that's a really big thing. And he's just a great person be around like I said earlier and just a I think with him. The biggest thing is just trust you trust us. No matter what happened the play before. I think that's probably the greatest thing about him. We can get fact and still if I blow protection say he can still get up the next play. And trust me. And I think are one thing about the players that we take pride in making sure that he doesn't get her or hit. And we bail them out of that ball. I think the biggest thing with us and the line and offense as a whole. Yeah. I mean I've desk by one play from the first half of the season. When coach Reich went forward on that fourth down on the minus side of the field. Obviously ended up losing that game to the Texans and big important divisional match up. But you guys must have felt a lot of confidence in a lot of strong feelings for coach having done that correct. Oh, yeah. That helped us out a lot. I mean, it was kind of even though we didn't win the game. I think it's turned us around some if this. Yeah. Telling us letting us know that there's not going to be scared. He has competence and a all the players. You know, we thank them for just even the opportunity because I mean ever player all the players or for game online. We want to be out there. So I mean, yeah, it didn't work out the way we wanted to but nine times, and I think we'll make it happen. Yeah. And you got a nice shot going ahead. I saw I think I read somewhere you got three home games coming up so nice way to sort of make some hay early in the second half. We've had I didn't even wrong to be at five away games already. So I've been really anything. I'm excited to be at home. I love home games. I love hookah saw it. I love the environment. So I'm I'm personally excited back to this. Interesting.

I wanna talk to you about this in one of the reasons I had you on this week is I am told that you spent a good portion or a portion of your by week working in a bojangles restaurant true. True. Tell me about it. It was. I love angles. I think it started out the rookie premiere rookie for mayor in an interview with my son started in they asked me, what would I miss most like with the restaurant most than before you can even? The question is that bojangles? Arizona's kind of taking off, and I guess at us at like eight and a half connection connections with somebody in set it up. So last night, I went to bojangles when I was there for an hour. Just kind of a work in a took some orders outside the drive through in than a I didn't do anything to mess up on because it was very crowded, but I kind of people who thank you a couple of people noticed me, which is very interesting, and I think were trying to figure out why I was working at bojangles. But a good experience. I think is something I would do again. So where was this Bojan? I there's a lot of questions coming out of that answer. So wait was this bojangles? What about go genitals Onate at your favorite growing up? All these things. Looking zone NC state campus on western will boulevard, and I don't know why like low jingles. They have great chicken Beauvais biscuits are awesome from the south to the south near the drive. Oh, and then I think I can cook McCain in prior. If like, I think they have the best fries in the fast in history. Honestly. So I think that's probably why I like them. So tell me about this drive through how many orders, you think you handled and how many screw up? I don't I don't know. How many I have if I had a lot. And I like the I wanna line heading. It was kinda hard looking at the receipt, and then trying to figure it out and say out loud. I'm not really scream anything allowed. But don't have to scream out like a Korpi supreme with is p in some kind of. A fast move the really festival because you know, you have you have the police people some people won't exiting some people. I won't got in like how I think we had to go back to go back and give them some more fries. So it was a respectable. But I I think another perspective on my. And you said a few people did recognize you handing them in their food. Yes. It was actually very funny. What's the story? But that like your hand in the food, and that goes, whoa. Like, what are you doing here? Basically quite got that looker that question. That was basically the biggest thing so with bojangles, obviously, it's a favorite of yours in terms of the food. And you describe the the items on the menu. They really love you have some interest on the business side with bojangles. I here as well. Right. Oh, yeah. Definitely. It's kinda cool. Like, I'm confronted with Scotty mccreery and seeing him go to commercial and stuff, even though Artie Volvo drink was kind of interesting, but I love to do something with them. And hopefully, I'll keep building a relationship with them. They'll have an opportunity later on in life. And what would that be you'd like to own a couple of franchises or a franchise or as many sukey get on loss would love to? And I mean, I just went up the headquarters Sarlat North Carolina, which I never knew. Yes, I would love to do that. Yeah. I love hearing that young people in first-year players like yourself already thinking about life after football. It's always gonna put that's going to serve you. Well, do you have interest in business? It was that formed at NC state. How did you have that? I think my father just talking about the phone. He I was thinking I actually have opportunity of exit. Epo obsolete have a good amount of money to set myself up. And he said one thing you could always get into McDonalds 'cause I'm never going to McDonald's close. So I don't know how McDonalds tangos goes. But I love of. So I mean. Close down there. I've never seen one time. I remember seeing them big nNcholas goes out is when they're renovating, and then it came back with more crowded than ever like the ones on my house. So. It's been nice does bojangles. I don't even know this is a purely in the south. I guess the question is are there any bojangles in Indianapolis? Oh, no. There's not. Tough. But I think there in about seven, I don't know how many states, but I know the the most north state there is is Maryland. And when I was driving, Indianapolis, I think the last one I thought was going to West Virginia. So every time I drive go to that one. Alabama. But a nothing north and what about their food compared to say, I don't know other other fast food places Popeye's. I don't know what what is it about them? The quality and the fries and the biscuits. There's so many. There's so many hidden often. You compared to like pop is. But it like has daring like AFC, it has mashed potatoes, you know, as built bogere, biscuits, MAC and cheese, thirty rice. I mean, there's a lot. No matter. What won't you like chicken? You'll be okay. That's great. Yeah. This obviously love for bojangles in there. You are working at it. During the bye week special story anything else you wanted to share from that experience handing out food at that at that bojangles this weekend. No doubt about it. I mean, just I respect the people in the fast food industry who worked there. It's are too strenuous. Yeah. Especially if it's toba clock where like the one I was at the football game was to nap hours. So everybody was there getting their food for the game. Like one guy had one hundred dollars. Order kinda hard is the fast food restaurant. You get like forty piece of chicken, that's tough and waiting and people, you know, some people irritated on think is is really interesting. Did you go to the game have to work? Actually, I did not. I didn't I wasn't there long. So I want to spend some time with my family. So I watch the game on TV. All right. So you're back with the colts getting ready for the second half the season. What what has been the thing last question? What has been the thing about pro football halfway three or rookie season that did not expect or the thing that you're most surprised by? I think playing in a game. I couldn't believe on be their first off. And then a I was talking to somebody about that day. Doesn't matter like you play like as a matter. What protections are doesn't matter like you play. And there's a little bit different than college college athlete people and Omegas be the better the better team wins. The NFL has a matter. Who's better who's worse? I think it's really bad day and execute because there's no matter who teams, you know, you see you see at every week. There's a team who is supposed to be good. They lose team that what they were supposed to be. And I think it really just shows. Everybody is good. And it's just the execution at that moment in that time to make that play. Any experiences running into players that you know, like, oh, my can't believe he's tackling me. Like, a I know JJ watt or something has has that happened to you. Or you just gotta be focused. No. I mean, I didn't. I think my biggest while factor. Two was only planning eagles. I didn't realize they had that many good delighted like when I watch I but it's kinda like a faceless opponent. So we're in the middle eagles game. I go in the third drive. And I'm in the huddle not look up like that. Hello do not. I didn't even know. He was with the. Fletcher Cox than have one of Bennett brothers, operate Barnett rushing off the edge. And I was like Jesus Christ really four starts. So that was pretty good. Are you thinking this while you're lined up to to run the ball? So no, I literally like was sitting in the huddle like it was a TV timeout. And I noticed right before like in the military timeout now I was like holy cow. We ran that Iran, right until alone. Not accident funny part about Iran like a trap, and it just didn't work that way. So that was funny. It's great story. Well, now hime Hines you're engaging man. I Meyer you already what you've done on the field and your interest in bojangles, both as a employees, and maybe a future owner. Great to have you on the podcast. Thank you, sir. I really appreciate it. Really hope enjoyed listening. Nahim Hines talk about his experience as a young rookie with the colts. Interesting stuff about staring at the eagles front line from the huddle and going like that's a lot. Notre I didn't know he was there. And then of course, talking about bojangles in being a potential owner, you a products, let's hear about them under armor, whether competing training recovery.

Under armor, the best in performance Garron now fitness apps now for listener questions part of the podcast every week. I'll answer your questions just leave a Google voice said four eight four four one six five six five four again for at four four one six five six five four this week. We have a couple of questions will start with rob Anders is Robin. Pittsburgh, the recent wave trade the NFL what change do you think don't bring the NextWave contracts contracts cruciate in way of trade restrictions on players side. Notre clauses limited Sherry clauses etcetera that may have been after Voss, thanks. Yeah. Robin's great question. We had so much active at the trade deadline, even before with Amari Cooper with Damon Harrison with Eli apple and then at the deadline with golden Tate in Damaris Thomas and others. I think it's great. It, you know, it's a great way for people to stay active in the winter the hot stove league. It's also interesting that teams are now using trade as well. As draft in free agency improve their teams is interesting question. What will it mean for maybe the players? Well, if you have extreme extrordinary leverage. Yeah. Guess you negotiate for no trade clause. These are rare. They're few and far between maybe ally. Manning, I know Larry FitzGerald, his Hatem in Arizona, but good luck trying to negotiate a no trade clause unless unless extraordinary leverage like a pick a name like a Russell Wilson. Aaron Rodgers Cam Newton maybe the superstar quarterbacks but again, everything's a negotiation. Do you want to use your negotiation capital for a no trade clause when you can use it for more money, you know, or more language that helps you with future guarantees that to me would be more valuable because no trade clauses. You know? No one's gonna try. To superstar quarterback. I know you get in the line manning situation right now, but I never saw that as realistic possibility even with their season going down the drain trading ally. Manning it's going to be difficult to part with him, which may be coming was not going to get beat through trade. Great question, rob. And now, let's move on close to Pittsburgh looks like Chris and Cleveland. Knowing him as you do. Why do you think John Dorsey the Browns job knowing that? He didn't really have the power to fire. Hugh Jackson and the head coach whoever it is in going reports on the owner GM thank prison. Yeah. Do know John wall worked for my entire time in Green Bay John was there is the college scouting director. Frankly in the fall never songs on the road. He's seen college campuses. He's bird dog in and he would show up in the winter and get ready for the grind of preparation draft. But stream Lee skilled at uncovering in finding college players in building building a team that way and brought in his two lieutenants that I know equally. Well, Elliott Wolff Ron's son. I think the world of Alan's ohi Smith was with me a whole time. Green bay's. Well, listen, I don't know what the circumstances were on new John was out of a job. So I'm not sure he had no much to say about he would only come in. If they could fire the coach. But in the first interview with. Has them in every interviewee had obviously the questions would come around the coach. And I think they knew going in that may be Hugh Jackson wasn't going to be the be all end all with John Dorsey throughout his tenure holding hands walking in sunlight into the horizon after their time together in Cleveland for ten years, or whatever it is. But I think what we've seen is. There was a handshake agreement or whatever it was the John Dorsey was not going to change coaches immediately. But immediately became however, long became year and a half. So that's a good enough timeframe. And I think people get hung up on. Well, he's not gonna find the coach while he's not gonna fry the coach right away. He's gonna fire. The coach end that always is not good when you have GM in coach coming in on different regimes hired differently not together. And now we're gonna see John Dorsey heaven ability with has, of course to hire the coach, and these are the two that will walk hand in hand into the Reisen. Ideally after a long career together with some success. That's what we have to see. But in ruins your question. I think John Dorsey took the job knowing couldn't fire Hugh Jackson immediately. But he did not take the job thinking he was stuck with Hugh Jackson long-term had he defined long-term. Well, not two years. So a year and a half that ability had happened. Whether it was John or whether it was the owner sing it formed self whatever was the discord with with Jackson offense, coroner taught hailing got rid of both of them. So that's where we are Chris thanks for the call and thanks for listening questions, hoping joy. His listener questions you can call in and leave a question form L answered on the podcast for eight four four one six five six five four four four four one six five six five four again, a word from bed online where at the midway point of the NFL college football each game is more important the NFL you have teams emerging college football Alabama clearly the best but Notre Dame Clemson other undefeated teams as well.

Tales From 2 AM, Part 2: Family first, but it's good to make room at the table for the Steelers

"And we're. Back. We are back details from, am I am Brian Anthony. Davis on behind the CURTAIN DOT com, the family of PODCASTS. Thanks for joining us today what we're talking about today. Is What we're the we're the Pittsburgh steelers fit in at your family table. So, and that's exactly what we're doing. So I talked about. How Mike My wife? Who might girlfriend at the time back in two, thousand six? How she actually broke up with me in the morning of the draft in know I talked to her and I'm like look I'm here with you. I am. Taking all of you know taking your family too. Because, this is who I want to be with and So that's the only time we broke up and like I said, it was it was really just about twenty minutes break-up but. The thing here is you don't break up with somebody in the morning of the draft. Kid. Her all the time like you broke up with me on draft bay, and then I win every time. So that's the one thing. You can. You can write a statement defending yourself, but I'm I'm going to bring that up. She's like have whatever. But so. After that, we start our lives together and she one of her favorite things in the world she actually worked at the Disney store. And she. She is Disney fanatic. She's a mickey mouse fanatic. And loves them. and. So. I found the perfect gift on Ebay and it was a package. There's actually a Mickey Mouse bobblehead wearing a steeler uniform. So. It was perfect and we still have that and that's down in the steeler room and I got that for as a symbol of us together. Combining our love's. Combining our loves for for Mickey and the steelers. And doing it together and We actually got engaged Disneyworld. And I had a I had a ring. made an Indian A. PA. Hooked me up with a guy to make a ring. So it looks like now, ears, I wanted to make it look like hypo psych Lloyd's. But I'm like I'm not doing that but it looks like mouse years and we had a chance to be in the parade. and. The cool thing about being in the prayed is everybody's coming up to us because they heard your the wants to got engaged those people that work there. So were were backstage or or whatever you call it disneyworld waiting for the braid and this is This is now they're in the two, thousand, six season. So I'm wearing my super bowl champion sweatshirt. and. were, were UH riding through the parade and everybody's waving to us, and we're Disney geared where nobody and we were just asked because we were engaged and they always let families in. So it was our turn and was great and were waving through and people were seem swear are calming on my sweatshirt yelling at me and on how awesome it was steelers, no steelers and young where they're from, and then one guy said. Never forget this, I'm from Cleveland and flip me the. Bird. It was the greatest moment. As far as you know that guy was that passionate about being a Cleveland fame seamless steelers, Super Bowl champion sweatshirt that he gave me the figure at Disneyworld repeal. It does not get better than that when it comes to being in that rivalry with the STEELERS IN CLEVELAND. told. You earlier, I was going to talk about her love for Hines Ward and Troy Paula Mall and beddis. Those were her three favorites. And we decided before we got engaged that We were going to cohabitate and live together, and we thought we would get toxins together. We still have dachshunds. We a the dachshunds that we got. They have both pat passed away and. All man big Mar of what goody. Big. Marvin the House get to see you my friend Dallas Quinlan him in there too. As he attic. Noble. Nice to see. If, you're just coming in, we're talking about the steelers and the family. And making room for the steelers at your family table. So. We got these dachshunds together, these little boy and a girl. My role is. Let me name the dogs? You know you're not. GonNa. Let me name the kids because. When my nephew was born in two, thousand, six, my Godson as well. WHO's a huge steeler fan? Noah shout out. My Buddy. No, and fourteen years old and huge steelers fan. And That's our bond together to. It goes so many ways. There's so many ways to bond with the steelers and family. and. We got these dogs. and. But Y, Negra digress I was talking about Noah. So Noah was born I'm like. Trying to get my sister, a Mike Look, you gotTa Name Them Arthur Arthur Rooney Davis. and. She wasn't married at the time But she is now. But. Not Naming the Kid Arthur. Name Arthur. So like you know when we have kids Arthur and she's like and you're not naming the killer Arthur. Trying to get Byron, in there. But the my buddy, my buddy who got me the tickets dog, he named his Myron. So I mean I couldn't name a dog Myron So. I'm like I'm naming the dogs and we got the dogs these cute little barrel and boy, and she he just doesn't look like an Arthur and like. My goal, right? Let let's. Let's compromise on this? The girl Mukhopadhyay Lamelo. So, we'll call her polly. The boy. We'll call Hines Hines, ward? Davis. So it's really funny. I. Mean Heinz was they're both passed away now. We we lost hines last year and. We lost polly the. Weekend of the AFC championship game when the steelers. Play in a New England and two thousand, sixteen absolutely broke my heart. A little picture of her watching the game with me because she always curled up and watch the game and. We taught the girl, a we we taught the dogs. We taught the dogs. Every time they heard touchdown steelers, they got a treat. So when we young touchdowns dealers, the dogs would come running and they were, I mean, it was pure Pavlovian and it was awesome. And so the dogs were very much part of the family and very much a part of the steeler way too. Great. So. Snowman's in the house. Hey, what's up snowman good to see you. So. You know. So hines that we have. Heinsohn. Paulie and. And hines was a little maniac, sometimes, he would just run around the yard. He'd get loose and he'd run down the street after other dogs. He was tough lake hines. and. And he would my gosh, one time hinds jumped on the back of a golden retriever golden retrievers. Running around hindes on his back. Just hold on for dear life. was. A Larry's in my wife's Hines, Ward. Get back. Your hines ward like the neighbors thinks she's crazy 'cause she's she's yelling at Hines Ward and no clear. That's the dog's name. So just. Funny Story I thought I'd throw in there to. Hines and Paulie, very much part of the family. So, the kids connor was born in two, thousand seven. And Jillian was born in two, thousand, nine. So. Here's a big thing about that. You know what's what's the first thing that happens when the kids are born. You know? They, You know, of course, the clean them off in, you know the handling of the family, and then you're you're figuring out what their name is, and because we didn't know what their names were A. We. Wanted to wait till. We saw them. We had some ideas, I, knock to name the kids I mean there was going to be a ban there was going to be. Like, Hey, could be called this one Bebo, we call this fast Willie. No, no, no Brian So. anyways, you know the one of the first things you do within the first day is you have their very first picture and the hospital comes in, they take their official first I picture. My wife had these outfits picked up for their first picture and I'm like. All right. That's fine. I convince the people to. Be Get to pictures. Like what said, we get to first pictures? because. My wife has these these. Outfits. But their official possible picture has got to be draped in a terrible towel. And that's what we did there. Official baby pictures their draped in the terrible towel. Grandchildren. That's the same thing. Even if they're not ceiling fans I'm making it happen. It's what I do, but so this was my very first child connor was. Now I do have I do have a stepson. You could see them that family picture in the background wearing the T. J.. Watt. He's married now, very much a part of our family huge part of our family He's my first son. So Stephens my first son. But my my first born. COMME was connor. And he was born August fourth. So he had a birthday last week. Happy Birthday Thirteen, big thirteen and August theft was Mike. Tomlin's first ever game as a coach. It was his first preseason game. They were playing in the hall of Fame Game. And I was wearing my San, Antonio? Homes Jersey, they're playing in this game. I'm watching the hospital, they're getting some rest, and so we we dressed up. We dressed up connor in this little that we drape the tell on his bassinet, they're in the hospital bed and. I put a Little Jersey over on the swimming in it but. I, put him on them and watching the game in this guy comes in to give him shots and he's wearing ravens sneakers. And I'm like did. Ravens sneakers. His again, I'm a ravens fan and gives a shot. Connor starts crying. You know he's a baby, gets a shot. I? Mean, he's a day old voices, Guy, sticking me and. I said look I see that's it. Ruins fans. Trust them though they'll make you cry. They'll try to make you cry your first lesson a steeler. Fan. Now is my son, the biggest sports fan. Now, he's not a big. He's not a big sports fan at all, but he watches the game with us from time to time. But. And? Jeff. Hartman's kids do the same thing. they're. They're really good at this to they. See a Ravens Fan. They talk smack my kids talk smack on Ravens fans in any fans the entire time. Donald. You're right. It's a clear plastic tub on a car. So. You're absolutely correct. I. I'm lucky. You're lucky. I. Didn't even know the word bassinet. So. That's really funny. So. You know mark firestorm by the way.

We have all from western Pennsylvania here in Maryland, all these steeler fans in hey. Biggie Bronco if you were here, I'd invite you. Invite in. There's just one role you come in. You could wear what you want. You could wear Bronco Jersey, you wear Ravens Jersey, but the rule is and it's my same role as. If you're in a stadium, anybody's allowed in my living room, you just can't pee on the couch. So you be respectful of the team you're watching. And you're not a jerk about it, and that's what it is. Now, I think I, think it was big more of that mentioned that his wife, a cowboys fan. So. Back in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, six, I was dating. This. This woman when I was living in West Virginia, I brought her to meet my parents in in Johnstown. In they were. She was a cowboys fan. And the steelers cowboys were both playing in the playoffs that day. And the couch play later on plan the panthers. and. The steelers were playing the Patriots. This horrible fog game at Twenty eight to three game that they lost. And at one point, the hand off the ball to Curtis. Curtis Martin. Curtis Martin. Take offered eighty yard run. He's running down the field. Okay. This woman. That I'm dating. She stands up and starts cheering. She's not a Patriots Fan. She was just being a butthole I mean, look up. Sorry. If you don't like the way I'm I'm talking about her, she was just being a complete, but all right, just trying to tease me because my team was losing oh man was angry. My Dad's looking like dude, you're listening to you is what are you doing here? My God. I. Broke up with her. Couple of weeks later, I mean, I just couldn't get over I. There's that wasn't the only reason. It's Kinda. The last Straw. All right. I'm kind of done here. She's not respecting my team. And she doesn't fit in. She's not making room for the steelers at the table. That's it. There's no problem I would marry a ravens fan I would have no problem. If. They were respectful of it. Now, my joke with my son I never told this this. But I always had this joke with my wife about my son and you could probably see him in the background there. He's wearing the the Juju Jersey. When he was born I'm like luck. He could be anybody he wants to be in this world. He can be, he could be born anyway once in this world. If. He comes to me when he's. Sixteen seventeen years old and says, Dad I'm gay. I would say, I, love you more than anything this world and I'm. And I don't care who you are. You're part of my family. But if he comes to me when he's sixteen says Dan, I've thought about it. I'm Ravens Fan. So don't let the door, hit you where the good Lord Split. You. Of course, you know I wouldn't do that. But. That that's the joke we always had. So but I can actually. Ravens Fan. I could marry a bengals fan I just as long. As you're. Respectful, I, agree with up on the board. Says you've got to wives in the pick. Bad. Actually. No. That's my daughter-in-law. Sydney, who steelers Fan. So. That's the daughter-in-law. And whose birthday was last week as well too. So shout happy birthday. Mom I missed that in last week show. So. No. I. Only have one wife and So I'M NOT GONNA put two wives in the picture, but I that's really funny. Big MARV says, but she loves some players on our team. He's talking about his wife who was a cowboys fan. I'm going to switch her over the steelers. That's good. See he's still trying but big MARV I'm sure you're respectful of the cowboys. and. She's respectful. The steals in work. She could do that. Our good friend Marvin I think his wife's a saints fan and he roots for the saints for her to. If they're in the Super Bowl, I think the saints she's on her own but. You know you can cohabitate with, you can live with a another. A fan of another team. You've just got to. You've just got to be respectful of that exit. ABC and my mom used to like, Joe, flacco. Hey. You. You can't get on. MOMS but. You know Joe FLACCO mom come on. He's not elite. Mr and Mrs Stihler. Miss Mrs. Mr, Steele, keep messing up. We have the same role we love endlessly. Except, being steelers fan that's so hysterical. Are Gay P. knows where we draw the line and. The line is. Being a steelers fan, and I respect that because family's family. You throw in the fact that. You could. And you're gonNA accept your family. But, family is going to make room for what you love and you make room for what your family loves. I. Mean I. I do some things with my kids that. I go to places my Gosh, I've been to Took my mom to a clay Achim concert. and. People were like an Jeff Hartmann tried to take my steel, Jeff and Dave tried to take my steeler card away from me and I'm like, no, I'm proud of it. Take your mom to a clay in concert. She loves clay and I'm. going. Was a Christmas show. So it was cool Christmas music I. Loved It, and we waited backstage. I made sure my mom got outside the door, so she could be the first. Gets out because I got some Intel that you can meet them and he shook her hand and then ignored everybody else all the screaming women and screaming girls and shook my mom's hand and said Hello Tour and you do stuff for your family. But when there's something you love. INC, in steelers become a part of the family. Just like Disney has. Become a part of. My family too. So Miss. Mrs, Mr Steeler, I. Love that. You know what? You love your son for who he is, but the roles were steeler family. If he brings another team into the mix, if he brings in the the Ravens or the Bengals, you feel sorry for him, but like okay, I'll respect it as long as you respect. Our religion. That is I call it saint, Myron sometime. Which? which is a far from Catholic but. You were the the Church of Rooney Saint Rooney's I mean that's our religion that the house and and we are. And we embrace that so. So, many families stories. So what I want to do? And this is awesome. Snowman man is Robin Masters. That's what Tony and I call him. great supporter of the show. I bought my mom front row Kenny Rogers tickets for a few a few years ago. I don't think that's a sacrifice though snowman because I would have gone that Kenny Rogers for you that would with you. That's awesome, and may he rest in peace? There's one of those things my wife had to My wife's like, yeah. Did you hear the news when he passed away and she had a break it to me? So that's The, that's the thing. and. I tell the story all the time about how you know I'm a big eighties music fan and I know every song of the I, know every number one song of the date of every number, one song in the nineteen eighties and a lot of it was because I had. One and two. I had to watch. The steelers game because most of the game star one o'clock back in the eighties and I had a list of the top ten of Casey Kasem? American. Top forty in Katie K.. Simple. My Guy. So a lot of my childhood. Was Two guys. Two guys shaved. My childhood were Chuck Knoll. The Emperor. In Casey Kasem. Would you believe that they died on the same weekend father's Day weekend. In two, thousand I, I messed this up all the time and the reason I missed this date up because. I'm suppressing it I believe it was two, thousand, fourteen I kind of suppress this. I like that episode of different strokes when Willis couldn't remember anything that happened in Nineteen, seventy five. Remember the NBA champions. He couldn't remember anything because stuff that happened seventy five because that's when his parents died. So. So when they got on the same weekend, not only did they die on this day apart on the same weekend, they died at age eighty two. They were eighty two years old when they died. It's father's Day weekend and people were phone in the House and texting my wife Saint as Brian know yet she has. No, he's. We're about to be father's day gifts, and he doesn't know he hasn't seen his flown yet. I've got to go break it to. So. and. You know that's A. You know. But that's where family comes into play. You know they know. What's important to you? And the things that are important. Get a place at your family table, and that's what steelers do. I think this is really funny. Ezra Nehemiah. Another great contributor to the show. Benny, Hill shaped my childhood. That's really funny vote. Really. Funny. He'll was classic. Big Mar.. Is An eighties fan also? I'm serious I. I can't do it on the show here, but because you can think I'm cheating, but I do this in person. I used to win dates. It drives my wife crazy but. I can I can take absolutely any date in the nineteen eighties an off the top of my head. Tell you the day of the week and the number one song. So that's that's my thing. Yeah. Just me Confirm. That was two, thousand, fourteen man that I mean I suppressed that. Something, I will forget that again. I know it's right around there because it's something that I suppress. But here's the thing back to those two guys that shaped my childhood. Dying on the same day. Eased it would ease the entire thing. Was Kids on my lap bringing me gifts for Father's Day in the love of the family. and. Knowing that I was hurting because celebrities I never met. The kind of shape much out had passed away and they were May were trying to make me feel better about it. And you, but it didn't hurt as much. So. Hey, family steeler stories, WanNa hear him. Snowman says I was working twelve hour shifts. So I couldn't go. So I asked my big sister, take my mom. They gave my sister enough money to take my mom to dinner in t shirt, and that was the Kenny Rogers concert that it's talking about mania probably missed a great show because Kenny was great. But I, want to hear some some fun. steeler stories, some families, steelers, stories. WanNa to talk about the show. This is us. I'm sure some of you watch it of you probably don't and Y-. Wonderful. Show. One of the it's going to tug at the heartstrings, the very first episode. You know. The very first scene. It's the guys birthday and he's wearing nothing but a terrible towel. because. I was his wife's gift to him for his birthday, and then they show later on in the season how she purchased the terrible towel form. because. It was set in. Pittsburgh. They conceived the kids at froggies, which was a real. Pittsburgh. And? They conceived the triplets. And I WANNA. Give away too much of the show. If you've never watched because it's a really good show Conceived them in the bathroom at froggies during halftime of Super Bowl fourteen where the steelers beat the rams. So you know, it's It's a very steeler centric show. So there was an episode where she was talking to this guy she was dating. He said. She's like I'm watching the game with my dad. I can't go out with you tonight. or it was going to be the first date. I've watched the game. My Dad won't can I come over and watch the game with you and? Kind of our thing, and he kind of forced his way in and then. He kind of Kind of kick them out because he wasn't really paying attention to the game and that was her time with her dad and her dad had passed away in the earns on. On the couch with her and that's what she did. You know. And that was to make sure her father watched the game after he passed away and I've asked my daughter. WHO's only she's only eleven master couple years ago when I saw that I hit hey, what do you do that for me and probably scared her but she agreed to do that. Day so I could watch the steelers Miss Mrs and Mr Steelers. WE HAVE SAVED EVERY JERSEY. We bought for our babies from birth, and when they move out, we are making a blanket out of them. And that's awesome. Ezra Nehemiah says, my sister's a ravens. Fan We watch the immaculate extension together. What a sweet moment into that was Christmas Day. So that's really cool. and. You probably have that rivalry, but it's still Christmas in. The thing is. The steelers and Ravens are GonNa Foia Part. Joked about that that thing earlier. About you know my son wanted to be fan, but they're not gonNA pull you apart, but you have the fun rivalry. But when it comes down to it, you're bond with your sister that can't be broken. The laundry that you wear the the team that you root for the culture that you have. That can co as coexist as long as there's room at the at the table for the steelers. Really. There's gotta be room at the table for the Ravens to when your sister is there because. It's a rivalry. It's fun. And that was that was a bittersweet day for me because that's the day George Michael Died. And? My Wife, a huge George Michael's George Michael Fan and. Navy's guy. You know that that kind of a kind of sad We have a super chat from Dave, Shipley Twenty Dollars Super Chats with thank you very much for your hardworking money. We really appreciate it. My wife started whacking people in we one Jacksonville with terrible towel in two thousand three, she was whacking people with a terrible. Security to stop and settle everything down I. knew she was a keeper seventeen years later. Go steelers. Shipley Mrs Dave. Shipley. Your wack in people with a terrible towel. WAS IT IN JACKSONVILLE? That's even better Dave. You've got to fall up with that. I don't know if that was in. Jacksonville. My wife and I went to a steelers game in Jacksonville about six years ago. Yeah. It was two thousand fourteen as well and. It was seventy five percents. steeler fans. It was pretty amazing. West says my daughter, five years old. She doesn't really understand sports, but she is all about watching football on wearing a steeler jersey with her pops man. That's. Out. You cherish that Dave Shipley says, West you cherish that, and that's at my kids were steelers stuff all the time and they know they know what means even though they're not fans, they'll go talk smack. Snowman says, he works with a couple. He's a giants fan. She's a cowboys fan. How's that work? But you know as long as there's room room at the table. So. Oh. Yeah. Sean Monahan says, don't let your wife here. You say you could marry a Ravens Fan. Now I've I am married Lindor, but not a ravens fan. Big. Dog. Has A steeler color. That's that's really cool. Dough Nolan. Bad Trivia question. Can you name all the players that caught a pass for the steelers last year? T what? I'm not, I won't look that up but. We'll. We'll go ahead and put that on the. Tony would do that tomorrow. So I will not look that up and I won't even think about that and let's do that tomorrow because I like that or maybe I look it up and we try to get Tony on that. That's a good one on QNA and. Were, retro. Show. Be The next day to So. Sean Monahan says. My mother took me to my first steeler game in Tampa in two thousand when I remember that game. So I was there and watched Rome beddis dominate the paper Champs in person with my terrible towel. and. If I'm not mistaken, he threw a touchdown pass that Game Sean. I'm pretty sure he did. West says I forget what year was, but I'm sure someone will know we had just lost the bengals which eliminated from the playoffs I was furious and told my wife. I wasn't even watching the last game. That might be two, thousand three. I'm actually If that's possible, could be two, thousand and three. I'm not sure yet. Even missed the playoffs that that. Much. So probably either two, thousand, three or two, thousand, six maybe. West Hickok again, Klay December thirty first. Little. Did I know my wife bought me take as the game turned out to be a great time? That's awesome Donald. Here. I was working at Dino's bar and wings in latrobe. When steelers Super Bowl in two, thousand, five, it was almost like being at the game place was packed to the brim with nothing. But sealer fans best memory I have. Yoyo. steelers are supposed to be a fantasy being football fan. It's supposed to be a fantasy world. It's supposed to be an escape. So that's that's really cool and you you remember that and I'm GonNa remember those moments with. Dancing with the kids when the steelers won. Probably, one of my I'm going to wrap it up because we're closing on our but probably. I'm GonNa Save the last the last great memory. For the end Marcus Nash Love this three of my four kids were born steelers super bowl years one, thousand, nine, hundred, five, Oh, five, and eight. Tell you what? If. There's time. The fifth kid and. See if we can get them in a super bowl year here in two, thousand, twenty, I mean. It could be right after the Super Bowl. How about that? My daughter? We were pregnant with my daughter in the super bowl year. So that's that's special. Chandler Brown. Me and my mom went to a steelers. Panther's game fourteen panthers. Fans had white towels and we were waving are terrible towels and fans started whacking with thousands security step in Cut. Show last week. I just lost that I'm. But A. Where's that Andrew Lebar caught? Your guys show last week at the at least good show. Bad. I appreciate that Andrew Will. Barr. Thank you very much. Hey, if you missed the shows, you can go back. And Watch. That's That's the way. Appreciate. Yeah. Exit fees trying to get Mr. Nash to make more babies so he can win the Super Bowl So WHO HAS DAVE? Shipley says if they're in Florida, let me know I got luxury box in all three. Let me know. Hey. Come Out, come down to a game. Again, I would love to do that. Awesome next time, the steelers are playing I'm calling me up. Dave. My Wife Loves Florida to. As says in two, thousand, fifteen, I went to Cincy for the playoff game. I had VIP passes snuck into the bengals locker room and took a picture while standing on the Bengals logo. That picture will definitely be my funeral pig I. Love It. Sean. Says my wife was pregnant with my son during the Super Bowl. No eight same with same with my daughter. The night, they won the Super Bowl. She had to stay the night in the hospital. Wow. Oh, so during the Super Bowl. Wow, that's that's a gift. That's a better gift than the Lombardi. So that's that's really awesome. So I. Only have about two more minutes. I WanNa tell you my last story. So a lot of people hear me talk about this and I probably talk about too much. But in two thousand and three I was diagnosed with testicular cancer and. Some that I caught. Really quick. And something, I was able to take care of, but there was a question whether I can have children. and. So. And the you know they told me because he didn't have radiation. I went to Johns Hopkins. And they're like, you know you didn't freeze. So you might not be able to have children. But since you're not having radiation, you should probably be. Okay. And might be a lot of work to have kids too and I'm like, you know, I have no problem doing that. But. I definitely went children and. Ironically. I had taken the test right before and I got the results. I just wanted to know and I had taken. The test in found out that I was actually able to conceive what it would be a lot of hard work the day the results came the day of my first date with my wife and. So the something good a nine, and that's something. You don't tell her up on our first date. But so. You, know with the cancer, not sure if I I would ever. Ever be able to conceive and the cancer happened. The year of my divorce to so lot of weird stuff going on in my life and ended up being the best year of my life because I've found about myself. So. The make a long story short. It's Thanksgiving weekend and my wife wasn't feeling well and. And two, thousand six. She wasn't feeling that well during Thanksgiving and everything, and I'm watching the steelers with polly, my dog Paulo and watching downstairs in my basement, and they lose like twenty seven nothing to the Ravens and it's the first half and I was so mad, I had all steeler Super Bowl bobbleheads and I turn them around I. So I don't WanNa look at you guys right now mad at you guys playing awful why I'm talking to bobbleheads I don't know. So I turned him around. And she comes walking down the steps and I'm there watching the game by myself in the. steelers central. What I call it. She comes down and says, Hey, he can talk. and. I'm like, yeah, she goes. Like. skewer sucked today I. mean there how awful the ravens were beaten them. You know part Scotches, bloodied, Ben? Roethlisberger. I'm so mad at him, and she saw Pablo heads the bobbleheads around I'm like, yeah, she. She starts Lashley Okay Yeah I'll come back later. I'm no. What you need in she pulls out the stick. That moment. I, found out I was going to be a father for the first time. And that's. Twenty seven nothing didn't mean anything anymore you know. And I knew. I was like this is awesome and it. It, took the sting out of them losing. The game didn't even matter fact I don't even know if I watched the rest of the game I was so excited. But I knew I was going to have a little steeler fan. I knew I was going to have. Added my family. And there was GONNA be room for all of us at the table. And? Grays Day of my life and the steelers lost twenty seven nothing, and it didn't matter because family comes first. But. You always make room at the table for the Pittsburgh steelers. I'm Brian Anthony Davis. You could call me bad. You call me two. AM This has been pails from two am. I'm so glad my steeler family might be tse family all of you on the screen. Is.

WWW DOT abstract dot com. Now for this week's interview I'm talking with. Irwin hines creative. Director at basic in San Diego California. Let's start the show all all right. So tell us who you are and what you do. My name is Irwin hines and I am a creative director of one of the two creative directors at basic agency located take. Our headquarters are located in San Diego but we have offices in mountain view as well as Saint. Louis Nice Talk to me about your work at basic like what's an average day like for you there. Oh man so. My role as a creative director is different from some of the other creative directors at agency's role we each kind of focus on our unique the unique specialty. So it's pretty expensive so I focus a lot on client work of course and so that just involves managing teams teams of two to maybe five people in guiding the process throughout the duration of the lifetime of a specific project with one of our clients and doing all the initial strategy and so add basic. We don't necessarily have a traditional strategy department. We expect all of our creatives who actually dive deep deep into strategy so that's understanding the different cultural nuances of the the clients audience and making sure that we are making those like unique connections connections based on what the clients goals are and what the audience actually values at the base level. That's one of my roles at basic but but since I've been there for seven years was one of the original people at the company I've also really taken it upon myself to to help guide the brand as a whole so as an agency. We don't necessarily just view ourselves just as a service company. We also be ourselves as a brand that we're constantly trying to a build one of our products that we deliver is our service right so we're very inspired by brands like Nike. Of course until my other role is really you know what our brand looks like. What are brand feels like what brands sounds like? And then all of our different community initiatives that we do. So are podcasts. brain-dead indeed that's one of the things I kind of head up. Then we also have a community series called crafted that was actually built to help bring together two different creatives within San Diego and help them to rub shoulders and break down the barriers between the different industries or creative verticals and so I do a lot of community stuff as well as the client stuff so again. It's like pretty expansive. That is really expansive. One thing that you just touched on there which I thought was interesting is that you expect the creatives them. Imagine these are like individual contributors. Right you expect them to get into the strategy like often that that strategy part tends to be reserved for maybe you like someone higher up the ranks like maybe a creative director art director. I mean take that approach. I think it came out of necessity so so when I joined there was only five people so all projects. We had to wear a lot of pets so I joined as like a senior designer but as a senior designer. I had to you come in and build brands. And all of that stuff. And we didn't have a strategy department and what we realized is that having that designer that creative from the very beginning beginning thinking about the brand strategy thinking about how the brand's needs need to be met in or what the consumers actual desire is and how the product that we're trying to market trying to build a digital experience for actually meets that consumers need and having the designer on board from the very beginning just creates creates a stronger. More seamless kind of project in process as well as just a stronger experience in the end and so it's just sort of stayed that way because as we realized the value in it from the beginning and now with one of the products of basic kind of being the service that you deliver. Is that something that came as sort of an organic evolution of the agency. Yeah I would say so and I think again. It's just it's mainly because we like to ourselves as a brand and Aubrey brands have the things that they create. Add to their larger sort of wide or larger sort of SS in their their larger perspective. Effective in so we make always considering. What is our larger perspective? What is our Y as a company? And how are we bring that forward through the work we do in proudly police also comes from the fact that we build a lot of brands for our clients and we always tell them to start with the. Why understand why you exist? What your customer wants? And then make sure you're delivering on that constantly and then all of the thing all of the things that you do are just really an ecosystem of consumer touch points that reflect your why in so I think we just internalized that ourselves in. Try and make sure that we're constantly focusing on refining in defining are are Y so that our work at the end of the day can become stronger. How did you first get started at basic seven years ago? I was actually doing freelance us. And so I was freelancing working at home working with anybody networking with other designers. Just McLean's and I was doing that for about six six months. I started to get very very restless because before that had been at a couple of other agency so I was able to toss ideas off of people always able to like feed off the other creative energy and I thought I would really really love that. Freelance lifestyle ragged do anything I wanted and hang out all day and take whatever days I would at all and all of that stuff but after six months ice again started to feel a little bit. Stir crazy identified people to toss ideas off of and basic actually actually reached out to me because I was doing some freelance work through an ex employee of basic and so through that ex employees match. Lock who owns basic actually saw my work in decided to reach out to me and at first so a little bit of a funny story. There's actually a pizza place in San Diego. That's really big big call a basic and it was located across the street from the agency I had previously worked at and we would go there like every single well day so in basic reached out to me via email at first I thought it was a pizza company asking for to become a designer at Pizza Company and at at that point like my freelance work was like activision Sony like I had big clients of freelancer. It's I was like no. Why would I ever want to meet with the people people but because it came through the referral of one of my other freelance clients? I decided to go meet with them and less pleasantly surprised that it was an agency that was doing amazing thing work. Now Talk to me about the team that you're working with because I would imagine you know. After seven years at the agency has went through a lot of changes. You probably went through a lot of changes as a professional final. What's your your team? Make up like now I was Gonna say we do so. I think there's two answers to that question. Why is over the years? We didn't didn't focus on this and this wasn't like a thing. We try to do but because the company is ran by a black man so matlock is black and then a lot of the leadership up is black as well as women. We've actually created a very very diverse team with people from all over the world all different cultures all different perspective and that was just because we truly valued different ideas and different perspectives coming together on one space and felt like that. Collision of of different perspectives and ideas actually fosters better work right so that was the perspective we had every time we would hire someone we like the challenge us do come with something different and if they did. That's when we knew that this was the right person of course tastes level. Great Work raper folio. All all that stuff was like table stakes. Like yes have all of that stuff but you have to challenge us in. So that's why I was like. Please ask that question again. 'CAUSE I had to make sure I like gave this a proper response so again. That's one side and then as far as like the makeup of the team. It's pretty pretty standard we have about. I'm GONNA probably really like mess up the numbers we probably have about like thirty five people in our San Diego Office forty people in forty to fifty people in the mountain view office and then we have like eight people in our office in so the Saint Louis Office is really an extension of the San Diego Office. It supports a lot of the work that we do in San Diego and then the mountain view office is really just focused on Google and then some of our other sort of bay area clients but their main focus is google in so that team. Makeup is is a lot different than the team makeup in San Diego. The team makeup and San Diego is project basis for individual clients. So you'll have teams of three or four. We like to try and keep them smallest smallest. They can be a lot more agile nimble as well as allow all of the designers to really have direct contact with the clients that way. There's like hidden people right. We always WANNA kind of elevate empower all of our creatives like I was saying with strategy to really be the face of the company and to be able Tila someday lead their own projects. That's really our goal right. We Really WanNa make sure that each person grows so we have junior designers. Senior designers are directors creative director. And then we have kind of the higher level leadership team that helps guide and really think through the vision and mission of the entire tire agency all of those departments and all of those groups. We do our best to work seamlessly together. So we strategically have set meeting eating so that whenever the leadership talks about can then be distilled down in share to the rest of the team as well as we have methods for communication in the other way so we can take things that like maybe a new designer comes in and has some frustration points or some tension points with some points in the culture in all of this other stuff that maybe has some great ideas. We have tools and really is just talking but we have tools that allow that new designers like frustrations or your ideas to bubble up to the surface of the leadership team in. That's how a lot of stuff at basic has really done. Its more so done from the younger creatives this or from the ground level as opposed to top down. That's an interesting kind of model. And it's something that I've noticed as I honestly am interviewing wing and and hiring creatives and stuff is that there certainly is more at least. I'm finding that there is more of a need to have designers that have sort of lead projects in that way maybe not necessarily from into end but they were more than just say the team member that did you know visual design. They actually had a project project or part of a project that they really got completely oversee. So it's good that you've got the agency kind of structured in that way to work with clients. Yeah and I think it also it benefits us at the end of the day and of course the designers because then these creatives are well versed if there has to be a shift in our agency. They're not just trained in one skillset. They're actually trained in. We like to say they're trained in brand building which extends past websites extends past. US extends past whenever Robert New medium or media type. There will be but now you understand the foundations of how to build a company that resonates with people and then whatever that company needs. In order order to speak to that audience we can create it and now speaking of clients and projects one of the clients you're working with are the Webby awards which yes and people know from. I don't know if I mentioned this on the show but I'm one of the judges this year. How did you all end up working with them so that was like A? I was like an honor because they honestly just reached out to us so they didn't do any pitching process. They just reach out to us because we have won. So many Webby Awards awards within the digital category over the past like five years and so I think because of that they looked at us. Firstly but then they also saw saw the quality of our work in our focus on really elevating the brand and trying to define new you X. Patterns because we win a lot in like like best practices. And we'd do that by trying to look at and understand and really pull Ford let your brands. Actual unique value proposition is which brand's mission is very similar to win. People are creating a retail experience. For like Ralph Lauren. A Winterberg creating a retail experience for like off light like those stores look different because they're trying to express what is inherently different about that brand in far too long digital experiences. Were moving away from that because everybody body was sort of moving to these templates sized systems because they were like deemed as easier to use. And so I think that we came in because we started like the agency we started doing at the very foundation was mainly Brandon in ninety eight. That's all we approach all of our projects with a very very brand heavy mindset in so they saw that we really hone in on what that brands messages. What the negative true with this and pull that forward into the digital experience to create something that is still very very easy simple to use but also has just a touch of like difference? Something that expresses that brand the best the types of clients for you to work. I honestly think for me. All clients are the best type of clients. That may sound like a cop out answer. Yeah I was GONNA say the reason I say that because I mean obviously I like have ideal clients like the idea. Client is like somebody who wants to be Super Super Open Super Collaborative challenges us very similar to what we look for when we look for new employees. It's almost the same as women look for like our ideal client right like we want. It'd be challenged. Who wanted to be pushed with one? This work to be the best work that we've ever done not saying that it needs to be like the craziest design but it expresses your brand. It tells your story story and you want to push us because you know your industry better than we do and we know digital. Maybe better than you do. That's what we really look for. When we're looking for relationships the reason I sent off clients is only because I've been in situations where at first I was like? I don't WanNa work with this guy or this decline is like really really frustrating but just just based on my time being in this industry or maybe just comes from like me being a black man in America just realizing that most situations are not easy. Eighty and I'd rather look at it as an opportunity to learn and grow than ever like a challenge that I need to run from and so even those clients I said are super challenging. I think I learned something new. I learn how to look at something new. I learned how to navigate a new area or new industry or a new client and deliver something good at the end of the day and as an agency in general because our product that we deliver at the end of the day. Is this service of design. Zayn we look at our clients in. WHO's reaching out to us really as a consumer or customer and we try and understand their late needs we try and understand what's frustrating them about their company? What hierarchy they have to go through what pushback they're getting so we don't look get our project in a silo saying like we have to get this through in all this stuff? We really trying to understand what the client is going through what the individual like. The person is going through at at that organization so we can help them at the end of the day like at the end of the day their goal is to create this product. Get this website done. Get this digital experience done. Get this brand on so that they can help their company be successful ultimately helping them be successful and so we try and understand their pathway of growth. In all of that stuff. So I think I think that's why I'm like. Every client is great because every client as a person and at the end of the day. We're here to help people not just create websites. Gotcha great explanation there. I like that. So let's switch talk about your work at basic and I do want to get more into some of the the community work but tell me about where you grew up so I actually. I grew up in Cleveland. Ohio grew up in Cleveland. Ohio love it. Still just can't move back there mainly because there's not like the job opportunities although it is like having this like really awesome resurgents like every time I go back which only once a year in its during the winter so it's probably not the best time to come back from like San Diego. That's always sunny but every time I go back it's like there's something new there is there's new energy there's there's there's new creatives moving into that city so every time I go back it is cool and it makes me. It makes me miss it but again I I can't move back purely because of the industry industry and now my my investment in San Diego. Yeah that makes sense. I have so for folks that have listened to the show for a while. They know I've got family in Cleveland. My Dad's the family is from Lake. Cleveland Shaker Heights town. Yeah Yeah Oh wow so most of my family like my Dad's side grew up in Shaker. I grew up in Beechwood. So if you have family that from Shaker I feel like there could be a connection. Sound like they might know them. My family is like heavily involved in community stuff in Cleveland and they were like family of like five or six and the Shaker school system and so they had like somebody in almost every grade. They're probably a some overlap. I think there probably is. Yeah so growing up up. There was creativity like a big part of your childhood. Yes I would definitely say so. I think I always had a had an inkling for creative like my family would push me into doing sports. I think that was just like by default. What what my family did like everybody plays? Everybody was good at sports and so on top above like me wanting to be creative and my parents supporting that so they put me. In Art classes they encouraged me to try music. Although I sucked like I tried to play Trumpet Britt the worst experience and at some point I actually thought I could sing and I thought I could play piano but it was just me playing. Hang on my parents piano and I'll be in the living room singing and trying to play into like I think about it now and I'm like that had to be so cringe-worthy and my parents wouldn't yell. Let me let me do it so I think I had like very very supportive parents when it come came to like exploring my creativity but again I was also pushed to do sports sports but in high school I actually dabbled in like pattern making. I really really loved clothing and creating my own clothes so that was like my main main form of creative expression throughout high school was like making clothes or making shoes a really. Wow Yeah like I viewed that as like I would like drew and stuff when I was younger like super young but then as soon as I got into like high school and I like touched the sewing machine I was like Oh this is like this is dope. Oh I can. I can create the things that I put on my body. I don't have to wear other people stuff like that was like so cool to me. And I viewed it as this. I think nick this living testament to who you are inside so was like this walking billboard of sorts billboard sound so marketing but the reality reality is like this walking art piece. I always find that like very powerful like I didn't realize the power of it. Then I think I liked it on a very shallow level title but there was a power and creating something that I was going to put on my body or that other people decided to put on their body. So when did you sort of know. Then I mean with not only only this exposure that your parents support but you know even now. You're talking about fashion apparel and stuff like that. When did you know like Oh? This is something I could do for a living. ooh I actually didn't know that until my like second half year in college. My parents support it but it wasn't like I. I didn't have any patterns to look at when it came to a designer like I didn't know any designers I didn't know anybody who made it in fashion design or I didn't even realize fashion design was a thing like I was doing it but I didn't realize it was like a thing like I never even like. I never stabbed him. That like my my access access to like create a profession was actually architecture in so on top of doing fashion stuff in high school. I also did a lot of CAD and took architecture get your classes and that was mainly due to the fact that I had exposure because my parents owned development company in so I saw it and and that was like Oh. I don't really like I saw construction as like a place I could go in so my parents on the development company on the then my grandparents on my father's side owned a successful like exterminating company and landscaping company. I'm sorry my grandparents my father's side owned the landscaping company. My grandparents it's on my mother's side on the successful exterminating company. So those are like the pathways that I was exposed to on top of like doctors and all that stuff but like those those were the entrepreneurial pathways that I saw in so out of all of those I was like l. e. designing like landscaping like a landscape architect. That's Kinda cool. who'll or designing a home where people can live and like creating these spaces that impacts your emotions in in all of that stuff like I found that deeply interesting interesting so I took some architecture classes in high school just to learn cad and I also did like my senior project at my parents company with the architect? That's convenient yet. That was like super but again it was like it was basically like what I was exposed to. It made my path way longer to get hit to realizing that design was a thing I can do so like then. My first year in College I studied or Mike Focus was construction uh-huh management and with that I wanted to really focus on this idea of architecture city planning and that was partially due due to the fact that when I was seeing my parents build these homes so they built homes like they bought affordable housing in the inner city. And when I saw them doing that in we would actually go back and always meet with and talk to all of the people that we built homes for to help maintain them because he also had the landscaping business. And we also exterminating business. So we would actually help you to maintain their homes and it was amazing the connections and then the joy that we would see on these people's face right and and I think I was very very impacted by that like the fact that again space things that we create can uplift a community that it to me was like what the heck like this is incredible. This is incredible in. So that's what took me in this space of like really trying to pursue architecture or city planning and my whole thing of like city planning was like. How do you actually create spaces in cities that are equitable for both the privileged and the underprivileged? And how do you bridge that that gap between those two to actually begin to create some empathy. So people understand the other side night to meet. Empathy is like the biggest thing in the world. Because is once you have a sense of understanding that true understanding not just like. Oh Yeah I know what you're saying but I don't care once you choo- empathy from both sides. Then we can begin ends a push forward and work together to create equitable solutions for everybody. That might be like hell idealistic but that was like my mission. My goal my vision but I I feel like nowadays what they call it like service design or something ethics so you were ahead of the curve there except the only challenge was I hated math. I hated it so been like I'm there. I'm like designing cool things but none of them can be built. I also my teachers You can't make this at all but it'll be cool though if you cook right and so my first year in college that was happening and then I also took like art history classes and I had never ever taken our history so I didn't understand the history of right. I didn't understand the story of art. I understand the depths of art really before I went to college so that first year also took an art history class in that class us. They're teaching us about like Basquiat. Teaching about the cost of their teaching us about it was a very in-depth like all history of our in. They're talking about the impact that each one of these artists had and how they were and this is something I took away where it's like. Every single artist was every great artist. Artists was basically acting as a mirror reflecting society's ills back to itself so that society could actually digest it and understand it because in our day to day life. We move so fast. We don't actually take time to sit and think in see what's happening in front of us in the purpose of art has been to kind of create and take a moment and take a chunk of time and give it to us in a digestible way so that we actually actually can understand what's happening right so great writing great podcast great. Anything and I'm including all of these things on the umbrella. Art Do that right like they force us to have a conversation. They forced us the top. They force us to live in a space for a moment and take us out of our day to day so I I saw that and I was like Oh yeah. I'll have to. Architecture can just do some art to like have the same level impact so then I actually took time off school and I again. I still didn't know that I could do design. That still wasn't clear to me so I took some time off from school like about like half a ear and I went in like hung out and my friends like dorms at UPN and I would just go audit like classes and she was studying marketing marketing and advertising and sitting there with her being able to in sitting in those classes in like hearing about branding hearing about marketing getting hearing about light advertising L.. Shoot this is like they're using this power to create these emotions and create these feelings and create these desires. They're tapping into the things that like. Make US human like that to me became really really interesting still. I didn't know how to get into it because I definitely couldn't get into U. Penn after after dropping out of college so I went back to creating close again that was like my default. I kept making shoes and selling shoes and then one of my other friends actually saw the shoes that I was making it was A. Hey you should come check out the art institute of Pittsburgh and I was like yeah why not. I was kind of like down for whatever ever and then I went down to Pittsburgh and met with some of the people started to Pittsburgh. I'm not saying the artists who good would never promote the art institute's. That's just where I had to go because I didn't have a portfolio at all in. I actually wanted to do game design at first and it was is because they were like talking to me about their courses that they had going through all of the details they I mentioned game design. They talk about advertising. Sell to all these other things but game design and was interesting because it wasn't far off of what I enjoyed about architecture which is creating these immersive spaces that people essentially live in or for inhabit for a period of time and they'll spaces can be used to create connections. Incense Games are played over the Internet and it creates connections for people across the world. I was Oh yeah totally want to do that. And try and figure out a way to create like healthy games that like create these connections and try and build empathy with people but you needed a portfolio. That's like a constant theme where it's like. These are the things I wanted to do. But I didn't have either. The love of math wasn't good at math and and I didn't have a portfolio so then I was then forced into graphic design at the art institute of Pittsburgh and through my courses through my classes actually ended up Falling in love with it because like my brandon class again. It kind of re sparked some of the energy that I had when I was sitting in auditing the classes at my friends school cool whereas I o branding has immense impact is not just about the beauty. It's not just about the static but you're creating this like entity not you're creating this thing that if used properly will reflect and amplify the voices of the people that are supporting winging and so. That's when I knew that I was like okay. I'm GONNA do this. I'm GONNA go hard at branding. That's quite a journey. Yeah it's like it's a little bit it all over the place but it has a through line. I'm curious and I'm going to you know we don't have to dwell on it too much. But why would you never promote the art institute. I didn't go to art institute. I just WanNa be clear about that but I'm just curious why. Oh I mean there are for profit university. That's been sued mad signs and the incident. Pittsburgh is actually closed down. So I don't want people to against the Chicago Institute of art like that's an amazing institution and it has nothing to do with the art institute. The Art Institutes are all for profit. It and they they would like they lied and they would fudge the numbers for how many people are actually placing which was just sad because you would see people who like they would say they had really high rates and there were some people who got jobs like I was somebody who got a job but I did so much work outside outside of school like everybody. Who got a job did so much work outside of school? But they didn't tell you that right like if you're a student you're putting your trust in an organization position to teach you the skill sets in the things you need to get that job. It's almost like okay if that's a part of it. Why aren't they including that in the in the on boarding they say yes? You'll have your curriculum. You'll learn your skill sets. You'll learn the tools but in order to guarantee job. You need to make sure you're doing freelance. Let's you need to make sure you're going around to all of these different networking events. You need to make sure you're collaborating with kids from Carnegie Mellon you know what I'm saying like all of those opportunities were open but but it's like I had to figure it out and opened myself. Okay no I was. I was curious about efforts to reasons. I mean I like when people push back against these sort of I want to say like industry standard tropes of like you have to go to the school in order to make it as a designer like I do think and you know this is sort of a problem with the industry that there is still this notion of that you have to go to these certain schools like you have to go to the design schools if you consider a designer essentially I know just tell my story a little bit like I went to to Hbu. I went to Morehouse is. It's funny. You mentioned you didn't unlike math. I majored in math but like my first semester. I was like this is a lot and I really wanted to go into web design. I it was a computer science major and I remember my professor. At the time I was telling him I wanted to do web design because I had like been tinkering around with html L. Like reverse engineer say this is like nineteen ninety nine so this is for consul. While ago where I was like telling my advisor this and I remember him telling me how you know. The Internet is a fad. Like this isn't going to be around for too much longer. And if this is something that really want to put all your eggs in this basket let's get. You should probably change your major to another school. That was like Damn Okay and at the time I wanted to go to the art institute because we had we had to art right colleges here in Atlanta the Atlanta artists of Atlanta and we have the Atlanta College of Art on College of art is now closed down now we have a Savannah Atlanta College of art and design. Yeah here but for me I was like yeah the art institute's like that was it because I saw the commercials they would have these commercials where you could like see either doing all this stuff and I was like. Oh so this is where you go to learn design and then even later on in my career. Because I'm self taught even later on in my career there would. BV SORTS OF. I guess you'd call them gatekeepers. I suppose I don't know who would say like oh well you're not a designer because you didn't go to design school like yeah that's the only way when clearly. It's not the the only way you can. Yeah that's one of the great things about this industry is that you don't necessarily have to follow specific half or go to these specific schools in order to be a success breath. Yeah I was GONNA say like trash like very much so because again for me like even without the artist too I think I just needed to be exposed artist. Suit exposed me to the fact that this could be a profession but I did all of the work on the side and all my own like you can go audit classes to learn some skills or you can learn a lot of the skills that you need on youtube and stuff to me. I think the main takeaways of university city for me were some of the non design classes for the classes that were more focus like theory and Psychology like it does to me. The biggest helps because it expanded my mind as opposed to just expanding my skill set in so like if there is anybody who's listening. Who is is questioning whether they need to go to school or do I need to do this? I think as long as you're doing things that are expanding your mind so that you understand cultural nuances this you understand like again how to look at the world differently that to me is what as a designer university is really good for. Gotcha so from Pittsburgh to San Diego. That's a trick. Well really from Cleveland. The Pittsburgh San Diego. That's that's kind of a trek when you look back at your career. Yeah because I did my research I worked at a few agencies at no Biz. You know modify you did some work for digitize etc like when you look back at your career like what did each of those places kind of teach you like. Did you walk away from those experiences with like a nugget of information that you take with you now. Yeah Yeah I would definitely say I did. I think whether it be good or bad I definitely learned something from each of those experiences so I modify and some of the other ones were just like freelance clients like I was. I was the dedicated creative but they are mainly freelance. So it wasn't necessarily like major learning experiences right other other than like continuing to hone my craft res- notice interactive. I was also the only creative was brought in as like a creative director and it was is to help lead and build out this brand and I think one of the things that I learned from that was the importance of good leadership in the importance of a strong founder. And not say like notice actually didn't have that and I think that's why I learned it because I I saw what let in the experience and how it kind of destroyed the organization in the company and so from that is just like how to be a good leader by doing everything opposite of what that leader where did and how to be honest rice and making sure that you're inspiring your team and then when I went to Tara that was like learning how to manage growth because the d'italia was when I went to d'italia it was still relatively small. They had just gotten purchased by Jedi. Bt and over the time that I was there like expanded rapidly and what ended up happening. was you kind of lose. Designed for Culture Culture and the the owners knew that like their focus was expansion growth and almost taking over and becoming their own holding company that was like their goal and they actually they. They've done that so now they're called mural and Miriam is bought out a bunch of other digital agencies and and then digital media became Uram which is the holding company of all those other So like they were like super successful in that goal but I saw the sacrifice of creative to be this like bigger entity inside from there was making sure that when I go to the next organization Ms Ation that we managed growth properly so that we don't lose culture because we lose culture you have high attrition attrition costs more than keeping people as well as a cost that your work like if your your work is is is your product and if you lose all of those people than your product suffers. Yeah yeah that is so true. I see that now a lot of startups low tech startups. Usually that we're that's the case. There's been this sometimes over indexing on culture sure fit and oftentimes when bad things happen at a company like that and it's to the detriment of the product is to the detriment of the people that work there like. It's it's pervasive one stuff like that happens. Yeah now. You're in San Diego which we talked about this before recording I was like I don't think of when I think of San Associated Design or culture but like San Diego is one of the ten largest cities in the US which a lot of people know that. But I'm curious to learn for more about your community work there you said through basic that you all are kind of I. Guess the community series in San Diego. He talked a little bit about that. All right so I've been in San Diego for ten years when I first moved here like moving from Pittsburgh where you had like gallery crawls like once a month or like spending time in New York a lot where you just have a lot of culture like just a lot of creative culture and then even like touching l. a.. There's just like energy abide. When I moved here ten two years ago I was looking for those things and all I could find was like okay? There is breweries. And there's beaches like okay which is like super cool for a little bit. Especially when you're when you feel like you're a city boy and yeah I like the beach I'm gonNA sound like ungrateful like beaches like Nice but at the same time as a creative if I need that creative energy so when I first moved here there was like nothing in over the years especially within the past like three or four years I began to realize how wrong I was and just how hidden the energy in the Bible was in San Diego. It was like you had to know you had to know the people you had to know what's going on in order to find it so it was a lot more about the underground scene in San Diego and it was just like hard to find and Dan within the past like two years. That underground scene has started to really bubble up in so when we talk about. What is the creative scene in San Sandiego? We have like some of the best poets in the world like we have like our poetry society wins nationals. All of the time we have some of the best this dancers in the world. There's two dances in San Diego. Who Do choreography for like Justin Bieber? They have a new Broadway show. They do stuff for Britney Spears but they like I live in San Diego and we also have some amazing other dancers traditional urban as well as classical ballet. We have amazing chefs in an amazing culinary racing and then we also have like amazing creatives in amazing designers. I'm basic being one of those but you also have like grizzly in like a few other agencies and Young creatives who are here in San Diego and then you have like amazing deejays music so you have all of these different like amazing creative industries and creative spaces but one thing that we were seeing that they weren't rubbing shoulders so it kind of goes back to the thing. I was saying that I had this goal since the foundation of like my creative spark which is like. How do you build spaces where people can come together from different backgrounds and start to develop empathy and understanding and work together and again so you have all these different creatives in creative people in these different spaces and they're all doing these amazing things but they weren't rubbing shoulders? They there was no friction action. There was no collision and so we created this very simple series of this very simple idea of like just bring twelve people together from different industries different backgrounds. Different Cultures Cultures aren't racist together over dinner and we use food as the medium of connection. Because it's visceral it's easy to understand and it causes in spark conversation in so we strategically do like a five course a seven course meal mainly because it creates more time and then the food itself is never really the central focus of the time. It's there but really. The central focus is about creating a space for conversation to happen in these. He's twelve people. Do not know each other at all in they get free invites so no one has to pay because we WANNA make sure that it's open and accessible to everybody so we'll always have a a student will have like a somebody who works architecture will have a scientist will have like somebody who owns property within like an undeveloped neighborhood. We'll have fine. Artists designers will kind of mix and match these different groups and in each one of the experiences which happened. Monthly has a theme and we utilize the food to connect and to like make people comfortable and then the theme is utilized to create a unifying connection in conversation between everybody and those teams are like things like identity and in that dinner which was our dinner in December and that dinner the theme team was identity and it was about exploring the ever evolving nature of the self and what identity means to each one of us individually and so we usually start off to dinner with like introduce yourself and then kind of go into that line of conversation and usually that I run of conversation is like really really really deep where people kind of get really personal all. They expose things that they wouldn't have otherwise exposed. And maybe it's because it's a group of strangers so you feel a little bit more like comfortable in. No one knows me here. But they've been really powerful mainly because it's a small intimate group who ends up having a very deep conversation with one another and we've seen a lot of people begin to work together from the different from crafted experiences which is really the mangle like there's no other alterior motive other than bringing people together and then promoting and showing people that there's other things going on the city so you don't have to leave the also had like high attrition of like creative talent in San Diego because like a creative was like I do fashion but there's no one else here doing creative stuff I'll just go to la because there's more opportunity which right now they're still is more opportunity in La. Obviously like there's more people who appreciate that that's stuff so you have a higher or a larger consumer base as a creative in La but one of the the things that we're really focused on with dinner as well as all of the other groups who are doing really amazing thing so there's also this group called the travellers club. There's a group called weird us and I can go on with all of these different groups but everybody is now focused on creating an opening up the doorway for opportunities for these. He's young creative so that they don't have to leave so that's the dinner as well as like the energy in San Diego right now is like everybody is focused on building a community that can thrive and can be self sustaining and it's it's amazing because it's really collaborative so there's not a lot of like negative competition if that makes sense it's it's a lot of like collaborative co-building of the community that we all want nice visit. San Diego Sounds Taylor great energy also I mean San Diego's like right on the border to Mexico like you guys are right. That's like another beautiful thing about it is like we have all of this rich culture. One of the things that I find the most interesting we begin to talk about this. A lot through our crafted like instagram. Is this idea that culture sure is made by many in the beauty of San Diego is unlike some of the places in on the West Coast. SF`er unlike La people come here with different from perspectives in goals and backgrounds. Like a lot of people will go to. SF with one perspective. Been One goal so no matter what race you are. What cultural background you are? You have specific acidic perspective or goal. Res- here because you have the military because we're a border town because you have all the universities and the different levels of universities and then you just have random transplants flats who are coming here because it's something different or you have like the people who are coming here for the beaches. Yeah the people who are coming here for the music so you have all these different people that it almost is akin to something like a New York where you have this really really diverse makeup in. That's what makes the culture of New York into and to me it's like that's what makes the culture of San Diego is this diverse makeup in. It's just US realizing like over the past year. We've been realizing that that is true. Power like we don't have to just be a beach city in a brewery city we can be like a creative powerhouse and this year. We're going to actually have. I design week as well. So there's a lot of movement around San Diego and I'm happy to work in an agency that has been invested in me. Kind of take the reins on a a lot of the community initiatives and making sure that we're using our skill sets in our talents and authentic ways than like we still do can drive on all of those things but I think we used to just do that and we started asking ourselves. How do we as people who understand how to build brands? Start to build the brand of our own city in really give back to our community in a deeper authentic way that lasts so it's like the the teach Amanda fish versus just like fish. Were them right right. So I think what we're trying to do is build programs that teach people how to fish ultimately that will come back to other issues like homelessness or four other issues like education because by connecting these different people you can essentially begin to affect all of those different things because you're building empathy across these different groups so connecting. Somebody who like having somebody who. Maybe their family is being gentrified right or they're they're a part of like the gentrified ride class. You have them at the table. Wis like a property developer and maybe a city official and you actually allow to have choo conversation as opposed to just like yelling. That's like the main goal of crafted. Are You satisfied creatively. Oh yeah totally. I'm like I'm more than satisfied. Ed Parson because like whenever I'm unsatisfied just create something crafted like I literally. Just think about like okay. If I'm not having that feeling of expressing empathy or the feeling of me being able to tell my true authentic story and really explore who I am if I'm not having that then I just just create another avenue and another pathway for me to add it so I never. I never really rely on other people for my creative satisfaction of that doesn't make sense. I the reason reason I was asking that because I was talking with a friend of mine. Actually her name Dying Houghton. She's been on the show before to we're just you know kind of talking. Cash it up and she was mentioning. She's like beyond sailing. You don't take your foot off. What are you talking about? She's like the Vision Path. And now you've got the same series coming out and stuff and and like for me like what I'm doing these things and it's it's interesting. You mentioned like you sort of see the void and you figure out like how can I fill the void with something that can help so like with me with the anthology was like there's not a lot of people of color and indigenous. There's people doing enough writing about design like you go to a bookstore and you look in the archdiocese nine section. There are very few if any book there from people people of color definitely not from black people. Yeah and it's like where does that begin. It begins with just like you know writing an essay and like getting the the feedback from people and then building building on that. And you know I think now certainly with technology it's easier than ever to start up a blog and put your thoughts out there. One thing that I'm experimenting with this year is getting back to belong. I used to blog a lot and like the early two thousands and stuff and I'm thinking about getting back out there now because it's so much cheesier to just get your thoughts out before like yeah. That was blogging back. In the day like you had to know how to have my sequel database and install all to the database run the installation and then keep up with all this and you have to have hosting and domain and all this and like now I use this tool call notion which is sort of like like this all in one kind of work place it's like evernote and Trello and all these things like had a baby in its notion and like you can blog from notion so like no right a page and you can set the page to public and then because it's all in the cloud or whatever but like you can set that pace the public and then just have people read your stuff and it's like I have all my projects like I have all like revision path. Recognize all my stuff in notion and then I've got like a little separate thing that's GonNa be the blog that I'm going to start and it's I just right while I'm in here in published and it's so easy but I get what you mean about. You know you find if there's something that's not fulfilling you then you find a way to kind of get that difficult. Yeah and actually love what you're saying. I think that that's one of the biggest things within our industry that we've started to see an almost every other creative industry so like you start to see it in fashion and it's being led by these like black designers and I know I know that they probably wouldn't want you to call them black designers right because no one wants to be like pigeon holed in. I hate being called a black designer because I feel like. Oh you're just trying to say I'm good for that is opposed to just being like. I'm a good designer and I happen to have a very rich narrative that helps guide everything I do that. You might not have but like what you're saying about how we need more of that. We need more of that story within this industry within the design world because for far too long long it hasn't been there but we're here but it always feels like within this industry. It almost feels like we're the. We're like a minority group who's just like pushed to the side and it's it's not about us. You know what I'm saying like it's it's strange because the level of importance that specifically for me like black people have had within the building of America and what America as what America pop culture is a lot of stuff is based on pop culture and the nuances of pop culture and all of that stuff like like we kind of create that in our people create that we create the vibe of coolness that drives commerce right right around the world but people don't want to recognize that and so I think it's important like what you're doing hello important because it begins to shine shined light on the importance of these views and understanding these views and take antiques out of just the take maybe like a a young black kid reads it and it helps to take them out of just the consumer mindset of. Just I'm going to consume consume consume. I can actually create like like these platforms like instagram. And all of those things became popular off of the content that US create a lot of those youth are like young young black kids. They're creating content for an organization that they don't even know that they can work at that. They don't even know that they can build themselves. And so I think it's like just showing that pathway like going going back to what I was saying at the very beginning where I didn't even know things existed because I wasn't exposed to it and so by what you're doing you're like helping give that exposure hoping hoping that young kids are listening to this. I also man hope they're listening they're reading and even I mean not even though I would say just young kids because that exposure can really come at at any age you know just just know that the option is out there that there can be something different. That can really comment at any age. But yeah the what. What piece of advice has stuck with you the longest when you think back over your career you think over your creative journey like what is that advice? ooh So I never had like a specific mentor like ever in my creative journey. And I think it's just because I was a knucklehead so I never liked looks for mentors I would just always listen to like interviews from Kanye West West or like whatever creative. I'm super inspired by that time. And I think but the biggest nugget of truth that I ever received was like from my family. That just was about my father. One Time said I don't like who you're becoming and it was when I was losing myself for a little bit and I wasn't necessarily thinking about my heritage in my past my upbringing and to me. That conversation is the conversation that has stuck with me and helped to guide Eh. Although my my my father probably wouldn't remember this sled like one moment in the conversation that followed about making sure that you're checking checking with your heritage making sure that you're checking with the things of your past the things that your grandfather did the things that both sides of the family have done for me and didn't put a burden on my shoulder. It actually made me proud of WHO I am Roy. Come from and it made me want to truly honor that so that was probably be like the the biggest piece of advice again. I think I'm somebody who looks and desires to look for inspiration outside of my industry. I have never really looked at other design and other designers for my pathway. I really love to understand look at culture because the things that were creating are are all floor culture and so even with creatives my biggest inspirations are people in the world of fashion or the world music. So it'd be like a Kirby from Peer Moss or Virgil. Like those to me like some biggest. Inspirations because they stand for breaking down barriers and and was just by being fucking good. I don't know if you can curse on this side. I just by being good what they do and they they move with theory and a a message and to me. That's like that to me is my biggest inspiration. Is the idea of moving with theory moving with a message that is consistent and it might evolve over time but there's always substance there. Yeah and so for me. It's it's a combination of let my father said as well as is like growing up. I think I've always been like really proud of being a black man. No matter where I was or how I grew up I grew up in a predominantly white neighborhood head but I would like walk around school like my predominantly white school with my fist in the air. Because I was just like super proud of who I am where I came from it. I think it was because on top of like what the media would show you in all the negativity that the media was about being a young black man and how you can just be a rapper. You can just be this tonight. That's all you would see or criminal light the criminalization of black people. My parents had like these books. Forgot what they're called but we got. These books looks every single month every single month that would just dive into one like impactful like African American and so oh sing. Those stories alike. Booker T. Washington in like getting to see this diversity or like Harriet Tubman Like seeing those things at a very young age I got got to see the diversity of black people in that we exist on a spectrum of very large spectrum. And it's not. We're not just a homogeneous group so I. I had early realization that I didn't have to try and be black. I just was black and that hat. Blackness can exist on a very large spectrum but it still impactful. It's still carries the same narrative story but my hey experiences are going to add to that history and that legacy to create something unique but I need to make sure that I carry Gary all of that with me into every room. I go to into every like time. I'm sitting with like a CEO or a C.. Suite person at Google. I need to bring with me. The legacy inherited a blackness and be proud of it and speak with the strength of that heritage. Wow now where do you see yourself in the next five years. What kind of work do you want to be doing? Twenty twenty-five and so me and a couple of my friends actually started project. That's actually building a restaurant group. We have two restaurants one is actually opening like they're actually building. Currently one is opening at the beginning of twenty twenty one. There's another one that's opening in October. And then we have a retail space. That's it's opening and like next month and so that to me is the next project and it kind of stems from crafted which is again like this space space in just to put more Colorado. I actually explained crafted as a living art experience that uses space in food and art to create empathy between disparate groups of people. And for me going back to like what I do. Art As art. The true in goal of art is not to create. Something beautiful is actually to create opportunity for conversation. That conversation can create change but in a conversation list society that silos us through Algorithms conversations between disparate group of people stopped happening and therefore it kind of limits. The amount of change that we can in have like impactful chains so crafted was that opportunity for me to create a space for conversation between district people to create change in and so extending that. We're looking at how we can actually go into some of these different neighborhoods so the chef and the guy who actually has own these different properties on I'm a partner in it but like the main owner. He's from this neighborhood called national city and for him. He grew up there but he always had to leave there to go to restaurants restaurants coffee shops. Like go anywhere which removes that since a pride in your neighborhood and when you have a sense of pride in your neighborhood then people begin to invest best more invest more time and invest more energy into that neighborhood. It's very similar to what we're seeing now in San Diego now that they see all these different things are going on. People are more proud proud to be in San Diego and then they're more likely to invest more likely to stay in so what we're trying to do in this neighborhood called national city where all of our three concepts are actually opening on one st is trying to create a sense of pride in that neighborhood so people feel prideful. They WANNA stay. And they want to reinvest into the community and so it's almost. How do you move into a neighborhood or not even moving? Because he's from there. But how do you reinvest into your community without outed ever having the need to be gentrified so I think we're trying to like for me that's like my my thing is like how do we figure out this fucking gentrification problem uh-huh oh it's almost going back to my passion for city plant or not passionate like what my goal of city planning was is going back to like these things that I had had from the very beginning which is how do you create equitable living spaces and make sure that your fostering opportunities conversation to create empathy and so oh my over the next couple of years. We're going to be launching those three projects and then from there who knows will say is probably going to be more stuff like that like. How do I just just getting deeper involved in helping to build true community reinvestment community? I'm big on community. Well see well just kind of wrap things up here. Where can our audience find out more about you and about your work on line? So of course you can go to basic agency DOT COM to see the agencies work and if you want to learn more about crafted you can actually go on instagram at experience crafted again. That's at experienced experienced crafted. And then if you WanNa follow me it's just at or when hines berry and that's on twitter. This is all on instagram. I mainly use instagram. A partial because I'm managing a lot of different social accounts and I can't be like going back and forth between twitter instagram. I find instagram by my main space to create conversation. So yeah definitely the main thing I would encourage people to follow is probably the experience crafted instagram. Just because that's where I put a lot of my time. I am a lot of my efforts. Outside of basic sounds good. We'll Irwin Hinds. I want to thank you so much for coming on the show. I mean I sort of had an idea. Yeah when I started this conversation kind of where things go but you you blew my mind like finding out about more about your background and seeing how now you've been able to we've all of these disparate experiences and influences into your story and then use that to like guide your work and go back out and give to the community. I mean it is such an inspiring thing to hear one of one of the themes that I'm trying to sort of carry throughout the a year is basically. How are we as black designers helping to build a more equitable future? Whoa and I feel that certainly you are doing it? I mean one through your design and branding work but then also through experience crafted and then through these actual physical spaces aces these restaurants and retail. Space I mean when they say people out here like doing it for the calls. You're out here doing it for the culture. Thank you thank you on the show. Oh I appreciate it. Thank you man. If I could leave with one one last thing. It actually goes to exactly what you're saying I think and I and I when I've had conversation with like other people of Color in general that from a very young age since we grew up in America we were actually forced to learn empathy and a sense of understanding of people outside of ourselves before we even were able to understand ourselves and so I think that is a very very powerful tool set as a creative to have in our tool bill because we can approach every single thing with a broader understanding and bringing that in making ensure. You're bringing that in making sure you're not shying away from it to me would be like the one thing. I hope that people like move move forward with Big Big thanks to Irwin hines and of course.

In addition to government intervention the clan face problems within itself in the aftermath rule made him numerous enemies before his mistress Marcia strangled and then poisoned him to death what about you I liked the story of John F Baxter and the minstrels emerged victorious and reclaim the governor's office on May nineteenth eighteen seventy four but in the next citizens the Democrats even crafted grandfather clauses so that white voters could circumvent the labyrinthine stipulations the as a result the dreams of James Hines and other radical Republicans vanished at least for a century it also meant that whites end selves both Brooks and Baxter had nearly one thousand men on each side by the end of the conflict at least two hundred had been killed comprised of carpetbaggers from the north they were frequently accused of corruption thanks to their willingness to cross the aisle and collaborate with institutional this ultimately lead to a practice known as Jim Crow a system of segregation that maintained quote separate but equal vote they were unable to mount a successful campaign against the opposing party with Southern Democrats now in control the works of the republic to be elected and assassinating Republican leaders was no longer necessary the political dominance of Democrats slowed the fight five the fifteenth amendment which ensured that Black Man's right to vote was now part of the US Constitution the next year grant signed legislation requ quality on every front in eighteen ninety two a black train passenger named homer Plessey was arrested when he refused seemed to make headway social justice advocates pushed back with new policies for example in eighteen seventy president ulysses s grant router Shen Cycle the Democrats swept both the legislature and the governor's office because the minstrels and brindle tails had split the Republican Arro- thirty four year old lawyer politician and civil rights advocate James M hines many gathered for the Lars Kratz as Baxter and Brooks South the Arkansas governorship their rivalry escalated into an armed conflict known as the Brooks Baxter War during April and May of eighteen seventy four violence permeated throughout little rock and out into most parts of the states. When Baxter won the vote to sit in a black designated car in the resulting case Plessey v Ferguson the Supreme Court ruled that segregation was because their methods had been so effective by keeping black voters away from the polls clansmen ensured that democratic politicians continued however some theorized that this directive was actually a ruse so that the clan could continue its reign of terror underground fourteenth and fifteenth amendments which granted citizenship and voting rights to black people were effectively nullified in practice if not in name can radicals were compromised the new party champion poll taxes literacy tests and highly restrictive residency requirements before any ability they may have generally had no idea about his planned murder after Clark disappeared investigators were left with no addition with each victory for equality came retributive violent act or aggressive law and each time the white supremacists the seven year old grand wizard Nathan Bedford Forrest ordered the groups dissolution in January of eighteen sixty nine four months after hines death stories were short lived as the pendulum continued to swing in eighteen seventy two the Republican party in Arkansas split into two pharmacist? Democrats suddenly found themselves without an organized opponent by the mid eighteen seventies the K. K. K. as violence had slowed is it the same local businesses as their white counterparts this period also introduced the lynching of black people by white mobs but all too many L. facilities for black and white people lack people were not permitted to live in the same neighborhoods receive the same quality education or even in response a postal carrier named Victor Hugo Green published the Negro Motorist Green Book also known simply those who could stop the mayhem like police officers and government officials either ignored it or secretly supported it nine the as the green book in Nineteen thirty six it noted which restaurants stores and hotels were safe and welcoming for black travelers when this guide will not have to be published that is when we as a race will have equal opportunities and privileges in the United States from membership dues and was less invested in the merits of organized hate in fact records suggest that he may not have even had strong added lives to justify white supremacy on February eighth nineteen fifteen d w Griffith's the birth of a nation premiered a thirty five year old salesman named William J Simmons decided to revive the clan as an official organization Simmons mostly wanted to make money author candidacy Taylor later founded the Green Book Project which involved extensive research visitation of green book sites in preparation studes about race one way or the other to drum up new fee paying recruits he commissioned the services of Publicists Edward Young Clarke and Elizabeth Tyler the grants to bootleggers by the summer of nineteen twenty one the clan had recruited nearly one hundred thousand members and the violence was reignited nation for her book overground railroad here she talks about the importance of the green book not only as a guide for travel but also hey was not only anti-black but anti-jewish an anti-catholic as well eventually they're targets included everyone from eighteen twenty four experts estimate the k. k. k. boasted two million members aggression against minorities sword soon morphed into what they called a pro American group however there narrow definition of pro American meant that the KKK thanks to their efforts the reborn KKK proved even more bigoted than the original the new organization took on a life of its own it told the story of the civil war and the reconstruction including the birth and rise of the Ku Klux Klan however it promoted did the KKK's version of history depicting the group in a positive light inspired by the film in the fall of that year they soon found that the best way to generate a response was to market their message as aggressively and as hatefully as possible first survival it was much more than just a triple A. for black people it was really the life saving companion it will be a great day for us to suspend this publication for then we can go wherever we please and without embarrassment on the road in the introduction to the nineteen forty eight edition of the Green Book the authors wrote there will be a day sometime in the near future that day seemed within reach in nineteen fifty four the Supreme Court ruled in Brown v Board of Education to reproach the quote separate Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white passenger on a segregated bus in Montgomery Alabama despite the bus drivers demands parks the following month the Birmingham KKK was reinvigorated. They retaliated against the bus boycotts success by bombing worse without that initial spark of violence history might have been unimaginably different members of the clan had terrorized equal rights supporters for years but their thirst for revenge wouldn't be quenched until they committed murder but equal system and integrate public schools the civil rights movement took another step forward on December first nineteen fifty five when L. Aiding a local ordinance and fine ten dollars but her trial and the subsequent protests within the black community led to the Montgomery bus boycott I'm a salesman founded another sect of the K. K. K. call the united clans of America the following year which continued the same policies is of terror and intimidation by nineteen sixty five the Ku Klux Klan was again organized throughout the South and its membership included an estimated thirty purpose is after being tortured Edwards was forced at gunpoint to jump off a bridge into the Alabama River to his dad the home of Dr Martin Luther King Junior one of the most recognizable faces of the movement his advocacy made him a target not unlike James Five to fifty thousand people a century after James Hines death the KKK's reign of terror had only grown exponentially the three hundred eighty one day boycott propelled the Supreme Court to declare that public transit segregation was unconstitutional off the next year an automobile plant worker from Atlanta established a violent sect called the US clans nights of the coup infiltrate the clan the same way he'd earlier pursued the communists hoover assembled two hundred agents in an operation known as attacks this racial conflict culminated during the nineteen sixties civil rights movement as the K. K.

The parable of 3G Capital: Bad recipe

"The. Leaders the parable of three g capital. Bad recipe. The problems of three g capital are a timely reminder that cost cutting deals and debt. Go only so far not many consumers have heard of three g capital and investment fund, but it controls some of the planet's best known brands including Heinz Budweiser and Burger King in the business world three g house become widely admired for buying venerable firms and using debt and surgical cost cuts to boost their financial returns. But after craft Hines three g firm revealed a twelve point six billion dollar quarterly loss on February twenty first what appeared to be a successful strategy. Suddenly looks like a fiasco the implications reach beyond Kraft Heinz in total three g run firms at least one hundred fifty billion dollars three. Gs founders hold direct stakes in some firms while others are held by. Three Gs investment funds for simplicity. It makes sense to lump them together and call them three g notable investors have got not just eg but catch up on their faces. Warren, Buffett's investment firm. Berkshire Hathaway lost two point seven billion dollars on its craft Hines shares in twenty eighteen there is a queasy sense that three Gs approach of dealmaking squeezing costs and heavy debts can be found at an alarming number of other firms leverage takeovers on nothing new in the nineteen eighties raiders such as James Goldsmith terrorized boardrooms, while private equity tycoons launched buyouts, most famously of RJR Nabisco in nineteen Eighty-eight with its roots in Brazil three g has brought twists of its own to such barbarism one is the scale of its deal making it is history. Second most acquisitive firm. After Blackstone with four hundred eighty billion dollars of takeover bids, including the purchases of an highs Bush and SAB Miller another is its distinctive star of buying popular brands with oligopolistic market shares. It believes that competition in such industries is muted and that consumers will reliably drink beer and eat beans. Forever. Bud was after all founded in eighteen seventy six and Heinz in eighteen sixty nine. And since three g is confident that sales will remain study it then loads firms with debt and cuts costs using zero based budgeting technique that requires manages to justify every dollar of spending from scratch each year and reinvest only some of the savings in the best brands. It sounds plausible. And it worked for a time. Indeed the restaurant division. It's still performing reasonably. But recently problems have emerged. Elsewhere. Where consumers on getting more fickle and switching to independent beer brands and healthier food. Competitors have raised their game supermarkets on promoting cheaper white label Browns while e-commerce has given a leg up to insurgent brands and capital. Markets have adopted investors have urged other firms to copy three Gs cost-cutting tactics even as takeover targets have got pricier because investors expect three G to pay top dollar for them signs of trouble emerged in October. When AB inbev three Gs bare arm cut its dividend. Although it is still growing overall in North America. It's volumes and profits shrank in twenty eighteen meanwhile, craft Hines as recent woes have let it to cut its dividend and warned that profits in two thousand nineteen would fall alarmingly. This doesn't seem a mere blip. It wrote down. Fifteen billion dollars of acquisition costs for good measure. It also said that regulators are investing. It's a counting. Neither AB inbev nor craft Heinz is likely to go bust. But in the long run they might end up being broken up yet. Again, post cutting is essential immature industries, the process of reallocating labour and capital away from declining products and towards new ones as well. As two new firms is what boosts productivity nonetheless managers have to get the mix right between slashing expenses and investing for growth, while maintaining an appropriate level of debt. Craft Heinz has failed on both counts it now forecasts that gross operating profit in twenty nineteen will be slightly lower than in twenty fourteen before the two firms merged on its balance sheet is creaking far from being an exception. Craft Hines is a super. Sized version of the strategy of much of corporate America over the past decade, while they sail have been sluggish sixty six percent of firms in the S and P five hundred index have raised their margins and sixty eight percent of raised their leverage since two thousand date, a mania for deals in which or industries premised on debt and steady is in full swing AT and T has bought Time Warner Disney is buying FOX at Bristol Myers Squibb, sell, gene. These three deals alone involve over one hundred and ten billion dollars of extra net debt and envision a six billion dollar cut in total annual costs, perhaps the good times will wrote on. But there have already been too big blowups of acquisitive indebted firms. Valiant drugmaker in twenty fifteen to sixteen and in twenty seventeen to eighteen General Electric, which has just sold its bio pharma. In order to cut its borrowings. There have been lucky escapes to in twenty seventeen Kraft Heinz and three g tried to by Unilever for cash and stock for about one hundred and forty billion dollars. It was only thanks to a determined fight by Unilever's manages not shareholders that Kraft Heinz withdrew anytime of firm has a string of successes boards and investors tend to drink the Kool aid another Kraft Heinz brand. In fact, there unsentimental collective task is to enforce discipline. And to block bids by over firms since the end of twenty sixteen the value of three Gs portfolio has dropped by about a third lagging far behind both the S and P five hundred and food and beverage firms. Shares of Kraft Heinz have underperformed Unilever by an incredible eighty four percentage points since the failed takeover bid that's enough to make you choke. On your beer and burger.

Choose the delight. Yeah, she's great. She's fucking all earth. Anyways. Stay tuned. Yaw things are about to get more. Sharpen those knives. It's forced up a Doug kitchen podcast. What's up show? Nothing. You know, mo- another week another news cycle. Not a bunch of bullshit. Now, they're same articles. Everyone sending both of us. Ios talk about. A lot of people have sent us sort of like, the implosion of vegans on YouTube, or I guess exhibitions whatever there is they they're vegan personalities that were caught eating fish or eggs or something or decided to stop being in whatever it is young people were like, what do you guys think about it? I don't know. I really I don't really have an opinion. I mean, this is something that is, unfortunately, I mean, it's common in the Wien communities. I'm never really surprised when it happens, but this is pretty common in the individuality. There's a really popular vegan restaurant that's owned by people who are not only meat eaters, but they have animals on their property. Sort of like that slaughter and south right? Yeah. And like, I I don't know. I think that there is some sort of like shorten fraud to this that people like to see especially because vegans claim like this moral high ground that to watch them fall from grace on the internet. Just really every time it happens digging for me, as you know, so much of this is just click. Wait. Oh, it is you sure, you know, one person was outed for whatever if you thought any of these on lifestyle, influencers vegan or not are real people. They are. But what they're giving. You is not their real life. That's not what it's a polish version of the them trying to sell you something like these these influencers, they don't really they don't create a product. And then when you see these thirty minute videos like why am stopping being vegan? Or why I'm doing this? I was so sick. I could barely do whatever. Like some fucking vegan youtuber think he hadn't what a Jackie related months until he ate salmon. Like through. I first of all I was on a vegan thing. Yeah. That's a you saying you fucking weirdo. The second of all talks are what the fuck, dude. Like and serve a liar. Like. Like. You know what I mean? Like, you're doing it for the click. So we're not going to anybody's names or we're not going to link to anything because it's all bullshit. I don't like to Don culture. Like, we don't participate in it. I'm not gonna pile on. Yeah. Not every like argument need every single person twice. And that's something ROY a member. Sometimes you don't you don't need to have an opinion on it Email. I felt like a lot of people chiming in. When somebody's kind of falling apart publicly in a fig. Nobody asked you right, dude. Their personal life is probably a fucking wreck. Yeah. Well, they don't need your shitty tweets or death threats or any of that. You know, if you're a journalist, that's fine. But it's like I don't need to hear like fucking jaw rules opinion on the twenty twenty your. What does your? Don't need to know. I don't care, and that's what so much of this teach on cultures. Like, I don't need to know would Gena Davis thinks of. You know, it's just like not everyone needs to weigh in on everything. And with these YouTubers, the I don't know why I don't know why people were surprised that all I mean, this isn't specific veganism like people are just fucking hypocrites. Like, this isn't every industry we see? And celebrities, we see an elected officials. We see in tech companies like this is not specific to it. Just more fun when it happens to begins or short general because every time they opened the fucking mouth. They got to remind you like vegan, and it's obnoxious if you're going to sit there and claim the small high ground, and then it turns out that maybe you got some conflicts of interest like the plate of fish eggs, got chickens on your property, whatever it is people pile on. I'm not I'm not here for it. So I don't really have an opinion. But just yeah. I think when you're, you know, following these people on Instagram or on YouTube on whatever platform, you're consuming, everyone is sewn you something. Yeah. Think about why they would be telling you something like, we're we're selling you something like, if some we're son you a book, we sewn you book with a barcode on fight you've a low low price of fourteen eighty nine when we're doing that. And we're very transparent, otherwise we don't make passive money off our those owner site, we don't do sponsored posts thou rant over. You don't talk tonight. What we do a little this week in food history. I got a good one. Okay. Let's I really have any news. I don't have a personal check in. I got nothing was going on food history this week Dunkin Hines was born in eighteen eighty. So if you're like me you like hold up that's a person. Dunkin Hines was like a like, Betty Crocker something sort of like a like a brand. Yeah. I thought it was like a brand name. I had no idea that it was a person. Right. So. Yeah, that's right. It was a person he died March fifteenth nineteen fifty nine so long before his name was synonymous with cake. He made meet himself famous kind of like as the Jonathan gold. Anthony bourdain of his time Jonathan goals, very famous food critic here in Los Angeles for those the although doughnut name, so I'm Dunkin was making his living as a traveling salesman, and he traveled all over the country. So he has a list of all the places he ate an all his favorite dishes at those places. And so you guys need to keep in mind that at this time that he was doing this. There was no interstate system in the United States, no highway system. There was only a very few chain restaurants, and those were only like super populated areas. Like, your New York's? You know, this dude sounds like a like a human yelp. Yeah. Exactly. Travelers depended on getting a good meal from these small kind of mom and pop restaurants. And so there was no way of knowing. How far you had to go out of your way to find one? Or if eating at the gas station was the better option, and so Heinsohn his wife, Florence begin assembling a list for all of his friends of the several hundred good restaurants had found across the country. He's descended about with Christmas cards and people loved it so much that in nineteen thirty five. He published a book called adventures in good eating which was where to find all these great meals over the United States obnoxious firm to send you a Christmas card. Also, here's my food scene. Yeah. Like, it's a check out my blog, the check out my blog, and then it was a it was a massive fucking hit. Yeah. People liked it. People loved it because I'd be I'd be that for friend. It's like Dunkin. I love you. You got to cut it out. Yeah. No, I'm I'm not going to fuck and Branson, Missouri. People loved it. And they loved it so much that he wrote another book three years later called lodging for a night, which was reviews of all the different like hotels and motels and places to stay and then along with some restaurants to eat nearby. He even interviewed Colonel Sanders when he was just operating out of his family's gas stations biscuits and chicken, it didn't he start out of guess, I know the people used to get food to guess, I mean, I guess people still do you just really a role in the dice quality food fell up. Like, you know, right. Colonel cooking the fucking chicken guys by the wayside note. Spelling the word Colonel Colonel Sanders is like one of Michelle's blind spots. I were English language kind of aids me. Where's the Colonel? There's no are. I don't understand my brain fucking explodes. Every time. I try to ride it out. This is having seven different times in my life. And every time I basically had an aneurysm and forgot everything new English word out of your vocabulary. I never use it. And this is exactly why. Because I feel like a dumb motherfucker every time to do it anyway, duck in Martha's Dunkin. Yeah. So he after the success of his books. He started a newspaper column and became America's favorite restaurant and lodging critic. Okay. He wrote a column in the newspaper. It was published three times a week all across the United States. He became one of the most trusted men in this country at during his time like a man wanted to buy property near where Dunkin Hines grew up. This guy. Did not know him had no just a fan. He sent him a blank check. He's in Dunkin of lynxes just five spice land for me. Like, I trust you while. Yeah, that's true. That's crazy. Right. So he's like the food. Walter cronkite. Anthony bourdain kinda. A gold star yelp reviewers. Yeah. But but somehow even more trustworthy. I don't know if that's never on yelp. So in nineteen Forty-six a life magazine did a profile on him to try to stress. How important he was to the development growth at the American restaurant industry and for our national cuisine. Okay. At that time almost a million copies of his book had sold Dame. Which again is a forty six. Yeah. I that's crazy. I was tough. I do in two thousand I he also had four hundred volunteers working for his guidebook anti still himself troubled sixty thousand miles a year to get for ten looks at America's restaurants. Okay. Then injuring his wife go with him. Probably not okay 'cause traveling salesman. There's probably a lot of bus. There's a lot of Minnie Hinds. Pure speculation. Don't come out. But anyway, because he was seen as such a trusted person in food, and in general, he licensed his name in the nineteen fifties for a line of ice, cream and cake. Mix says Oreos and see like how do we don't get Hines cakes? So then a food chemist named Arlene. Andre was the one who actually perfected the Duncan Hines cake mix. And when they put it on the shelves within weeks it had taken over half the cake mix market who that's fucking. That's that's a wild success. Okay. So Dunkin Hines brands would Uber did exactly so Dunkin Hines brand is now owned by conagra. And that whole portfolio is now worth two point three billion dollars and Dunkin Hines is like considered a hometown hero in bowling green. Where he's from. And he has a highway named after him over there. All right. That's you know, what I did not know shit about Dunkin Hines. No, I didn't know about Duncan Hines. I didn't know he fucking exist. And guess what? Now, we're all. Learnt a happy birthday Dunkin Hines change the game. Dude. I didn't even fucking out show some respect but his fucking face on the box somewhere show. Shut all toll a little Hines out and MRs Heinz. I'm sure wasn't easy. Having your husband WALE the time. Fuck that. But congrats that's fucking baller south does get into schism modern news. So, you know. You know, what's tired, Michelle? What's that sucking down soda? That's why I met, you know, it's wired drinking water. So doctors have linked consuming one coke per day to an increase in colon cancer, which is already on the rise with millennials study. Not that much thought it's not them. Achievable amount of a lot of people might have won one coca day. I don't mean the brand coke. I mean like soda so study out of Cornell University finds a consuming twelve ounces or three hundred fifty milliliters of sugary drinks per day, specifically drinks to contain glucose, and or fructose can increase the risk of colon cancer by nearly double Phil. And that so it's sugary drinks. Right. So I mean, this could be Gatorade. Hey, could be Frappuccino could be could be a gal sugary coffee. Yeah. So. So. The study fed lab mice equivalent of what would be like less than one soda per day for a human in. That contained a high fructose corn syrup in those mice were twice as likely to develop intestinal cancer. Okay. Dr lose can't leave from Cornell University in New York said, quote, the tumor was directly eating the sugar that cancer was using fructose and glucose together to more than double its growth rate. Terrifying. The calls can the half-off gang terrifying. So if you have problems, you're literally just making them worse by second down soda. For those of you, not familiar since signs of calling cancer include a bloody stool, or what doctors refer to his the back passage that might be my favorite word now for asshole whippy and such a back passage. Change normal. Toilet usage. Like going more frequently stomach pain or lumps extreme tiredness and loss of weight. Oh, okay. Yeah. I am. I just hit too hard today. I I don't drink that many sodas a lot of people that drink. What I was just going to say is, you know, we have a lot of family in the south both you, and I and a lot of our family members instead of maybe necessarily having a coffee they have a Coca Cola or some kind of a soda in the morning for their caffeine to wake up. So this is a this is no small thing to be. No. I mean, if you were to tell me consuming anything doubled my risk. Yeah. Like I'd be like fuck that done. So is there any research done in humans? Right. So not yet. But this is also worth mentioning that he two thousand fifteen sweetest study published in the medical journal heart research, forty two thousand men over twelve years in concluded that consuming two sodas are more per day. Putting in a twenty three percent greater risk of heart failure and in five hundred nine of those cases death. Wow. So so their Ed. So there's other air study showing like a correlation. Right. So in like, you might think that maybe diet sodas somehow better. But the researchers in the affirmation study did not differentiate between sugar sweetened sodas like coke versus artificially sweetened sodas like diet coke or other diet sodas where they use artificial sweeteners. So both regular and diet sodas equally contribute to heart failure risk. So if. You think that you're doing yourself a favor by drinking diet, Pepsi your diet coke or caffeine, free, or whatever you're not? It's not it's not doing anything. So does not good for your heart. I dunno. This shouldn't come as a surprise guys. We need to start treating soda and sugary beverages like cigarettes, not just cigarettes like cigarettes in desert. Oh, yeah. The the we've talked about this for us to be. Yeah. People it take your bait onto the soda pop shop to get split a soda to get a treat, and we need to start thinking of it like that not add on is an everyday thing that yeah, you wouldn't consume this with a meal. That's just it's not appropriate, even regardless of health. It's just not an appropriate way to consume that much Shukan guys. Please drink some goddamn water. Police it will I don't like the taste. Well, guess what? It doesn't fucking matter. If. Tusa water. I don't like the taste the nothing. Yeah. There is no taste when you're talking about not every fucking moment on this planet needs to bring you pleasure. You just drink it because you need to do you like the taste the air fucking need it still smell farts? You got a read fucking idiot just do it. And then treat yourself to a soda on Sunday. After having a good week water drinkin-. Okay. Go down and pick up your sweetheart and go down hip hop. Shop. Got split a cherry coke that being said even things that we think are good for us are a little more dangerous these days. Yeah. You were telling me about avocado recall motherfucker. We just need a segment on every episode called total Rico. Just to a run down everything that's got Rico. Absolutely should. So in Eskin Tito in here in California and avocado grower is voluntarily recalling avocados sold to store is in six different states because of the possibility of listeria contamination. I'm sure you've told me this before, but you know. Marijuana use? And all that what what is listeria again. Okay. Sell the stereo lives naturally in the soil in the water and. Produce could come become contaminated by it was a miccosukee what what's the effect? Well. So it can cause serious sometimes fatal infections in young children, the frail or older people and or other people's like a weakened immune system. It can cause miscarriages and stillbirths and calls me. Crazy. Diarrhea sears. Yeah. It's really bad that being said, no one has yet gotten sick from this recall. This is a voluntary recall because during a. The possibility of a series. During an environmental like some routine environmental checks madness facility. They found some listeria the Henry avocado packing facility. So instead of trying to cover up their shit unin. Hope no one got sick. They're just doing a voluntary recall to make sure that no one does get set. Good on them. Yes. Arrived being like, you know, what we're gonna this is to hurt us. Yeah. We should tell people. Yeah. We're not. We're not your put laying this really getting out in front. So the recalled avocados were shipped to Arizona, California, Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina, and Wisconsin. All right, girl. You know, just be a little careful, and it's something to remember, you know, people don't think to wash avocado or like a cantaloupe or watermelon or anything like that ever washing overcome. Yeah. We talked about that because of the membrane. Right. It gets the. Yeah. When you've cut through it, though, the outside is dirty. And now, you're smearing everything. You know, whether it was manure on the outside of your fruits or vegetables or anything like that, you're cutting it on the inside. So even though, you know, you're not eating any of that outside part. You've now touched it all through the inside. So make sure to wash it Vom saying, but what was weird reading all these articles about this recall is that almost every single article. I read made fun of millennials taking digs us every time every single day. Jim lineal is on the list. And it was just such a weird thing to mock like a generation of people at first of all everyone knows this nation is fucking built on quantum only number one so fucking hypocrites. There's a lot of. Why why people why are you making fun of a generation for eating a vegetable fruit technically like fucking excuse us for eating plant matter. No. Yeah. Goes go shut shut the fuck up. Y'all y'all fad diets like, okay, fine. We like, avocado toast, fine. We like it. Who cares? Yeah. You're diets were insane. Have y'all ever seen those magazines from the nineteen eighties? Yeah. You know, everything was in jello, mold. Yeah. You can keep your hand in fucking jello, mold. Okay. What was the grapefruit diet? What was that's? Yeah. No, you shut up. Cudjoe one thing always say is we like how it tastes for construction. It's very upsetting. But in some good news. There's some shit. We can learn from Texas. Do we before we move on? Yeah. This a good opportunity to talk about Vukadin avocados. Oh, and one of our favorite inside jokes. Because if you I think we own that domain if we don't we well shortly. We do know. If you or someone, you know are in love suffers from listeria, avocado. I'm going to create a. Like a bunch of ads. Yeah. Get back to the office like like. Because avocados. Serving all your produce needs eulogised produce neither litigious. You guys who maybe don't know avocado. This attorney and spin. A real quick there's something we can learn from Texas. I mean, lots from Texas, but this is the one for the week, the San Antonio city council signed a seven year contract on Thursday to welcome a number of new restaurants to the airports h terminal the project, initially included Chick-fil-A, but the city council reportedly voted to approve the contract on the condition that the chicken franchise was excluded from the plants. Okay for why. All right, okay. You say chick flays opening people lose a gun now. But here we go the quote with this decision. The city council reaffirmed the work. I city has done to become a champion of quality inclusion said councilman Robert Trevino in a statement, San Antonio is a city full of compassion. And we do not have ruin our public facilities for a business with a legacy of anti LGBTQ behavior. Good for them. So fucking. Dand good. I think that's great because everyone comes Chick-fil-A. But then also condemns them for their, you know, bigoted, stances and all the money. I mean, they're still giving all this money to dollar. We've been saying thousand four times, and here's a city doing one small thing for their community being like, no we value every single member in our community. And if you're a business who doesn't you can get the fuck out, you don't need to be in our public spaces. We don't need to be giving you a tax break or an incentivize you to come here.

Oh celebration. With her especially fuck. They were fucking stoked on the flavors that you guys were getting that freezer. I was nailing it. Really? A dream. Funny. I was like because I loved that.

That was possibly. It's just learn your brain just like because it on loop reach for the ice cream. Fuck yet. Doing something. And then you see someone see you. And then you realize that maybe I'm behaving like a lunatic. You weren't. But I definitely had moments. Like that where I'm just like oh, fuck me. I mean, it's a daily current. I need to become a little bit more self aware when especially in grocery stores because I spend most of my life in grocery stores. And yeah. Every time I walk into my it was just here. She us fucking here. They even leave. No, yeah. Oh my God. That when I used to work at a grocery store, those were my dreams, we're just that. I was working at the grocery store.

I know what we have. And we do not count sounds more like a nightmare than a dream. It's all the same my life. It's a waking nightmare. For the listeners at home. I got to describe your water bottle. So it's just the typical water bottle by you turn it around on Casey's water. Brought along one day is like have you been to Mr. green store? No. It's a sweet little where's the shop.

That decided to order some food for himself. A couple of days ago are wrecked. He's got the flour from a local Mexican chain, which is very good. And you loved everybody. However, it was a gut bomb in half damn this motion. Michelle told me together you office. Morten so much 'cause I just want you to know that my farts have returned to normal Sweden by the heads up though. Your. I'm not farting my fucking guts out. It's just that. They've returned back. Still farting. We're back yet. We went we went from code red co green subtracting normal. So it's all good. We should talk about actual food staff like so food. Yeah. Amazing put that on his shirt. I think is fantastic. But you've worked in the food industry and like a thousand different capacities. I feel like yeah. But you get a lot of gigs in L A like food styling. Yeah. Yeah. So neither of us knew what the fuck out was until after our first book came out. So for people who don't know that there is a job called food styling. Can you kind of styling was I learned? So I'm from Kansas in Kansas City. Hallmark cards is based there. So I was working there. Like everything going to know. Yeah. She's. So I actually started working there after I had a grocery store and restaurant for a couple years after college. But so it went to hallmark. And then I started prop and wardrobe assisting for their photo shoots and then one day food status came in. And I was like what the fuck is. She doing. Yeah. What does this job? And they're like, oh, you know. She just makes the food. Look really great for the photography. And I was like, well, we're good knows where I'll be. Close kohl's. Yeah. You can't really just that up. No polish. Yeah. So that's when it started you kind of have to work your way up in the field. So I assist did this woman who's a really good friend of mine. She's bad ass for a couple of years. And then I went out on my own spread my wings and fly flied fly. Done flew flew got flown. A lot of it is like just plating. And yeah, it's it's basically I mean making food look perfect for the photo, which doesn't necessarily mean it has to do anything with tastes. Yeah. So sometimes it's cooked. You know, sometimes it's just greased up and seasoned or whatever. So sometimes we're like, we'll be still working on the sauce or whatever. And we're like, oh, this is drenched. No one's going to taste the photo fix the recipe later. Yeah. Yeah. You get you get really caught up especially being a chef to really. You're like, wait. No, this is just a phone red food. We've cheated Suffolk Kool-Aid water. Yeah. Are fake red wine and all of our photo. Delicious Kool aid. Yeah. We didn't even know that that was the fucking gig like what what a cost thing. But I think it's really hard as a food stylist because it's not your style. Its who you're working for you have to make the food look either like super messy super accessible like food porn any or like fucking perfect doing like you you've done. So for like, New York Times, food magazines. Right. Yeah. People. Yeah. Ever since I came to LA. The client base has become way more creative and interesting and fun and way more, you know, under the umbrella of food that I believe in as if it's -tarian. Yeah. But back and kids city was fucking gnarly. Cargo and farmland out and all the shit, and I've been born and raised a vegetarian. So I didn't know like it's comical how little I know about meat like sometimes you catch me in the meat aisle ice cream. I'll because it's like I'll be standing there like. Pork. I don't even. Like, all my friends like phone, a friend and be like, hey, so what the fuck is this cut? I don't know. Why work that's a bird, right? From ostriches. And then like when I find out what it is is just start crying. But yeah, it was way more meat Centric and Kansas City. Just like totally bullshitting faking it till I make it. Yeah. Stuff and like mentally having to check out also and being like hits just meeting on just cleaning. It's clear. So yeah, it's way more enjoyable. It you make some good creative work. Yeah. What foods or dishes? Do. You think are the hardest to make look like we have our can't do soup soup is tough as going to say like Chile anything Brown. Yeah. It's a great deal. It's vomit. Yeah. We have a dish for the fourth book. We recipe testing looks fantastic in real life in real life in real life. Yeah. Not on care. Look like dog diarrhea can't put lipstick on a pig.

No chilliness fucking shot corn bread. Zero chile. The thing I always say to Matt it's like any time we're doing like a food tray, and it has like a tahini sauce or anything of white sauce on animals like, okay? Matt tell me when I look to Comey. I mean that the whole photography world where it's like you learn at some point and just to keep it to yourself. If something looks like a dick. Because if you say that kinda looks because everything fucking does everything looks like cock and balls, and it's like, you pointed out to the client and then your four hours. It's like, oh my God. So it's like, that's when you know, you're professionally keep those things that doesn't look like com. Cracking. Oh, my got somebody was just trying to get through that shoot. I'm not gonna talk about how much that looks like a full facial on that burger. So I mean. This is people like the drip deal. Yeah. I know. But that's that's what it is. Pancakes, and you see that drip, going one little drop. Yeah. Booking lose. Dasa why fucking game over? Game over. You helped out on Snoop's book. Right. His latest. Yeah. So I have nowhere to go with my career. Just like you referred styling. I was. Yeah. That's awesome. Yeah. It was I was actually on vacation and my agent called and they're like dog. That can we just appreciate you've been in LA for how long now like three years. Yeah. That was a beautiful. Good when it's coming IRAs on. In my age. It was snooped on. They were right. Food stylists. This is all you. There's a lot of food bloggers follow us fucking make it happen guys. Like, you can do it. Yes early. So snoop hits you up. Yeah. So I get a phone call. And they're like, dude, it's it's tomorrow. And it's one of those stupid things because celebrities can do whatever they want to do it yesterday. Yeah. Go ahead and talk to God about time. Get superman fly around the backwards. That is pretty universal talented like I people they get that idea in their head in there. So fucking excited about it. You're like we need to get started on this immediately. And you're like cert- eleven thirty at night. You gotta go to bed hospital, and yeah. But yet, it's not. But it's not I mean, I would do anything for snoop Dogg. And and I did so I came home early, and it was just tell shit show getting everything done source a bunch of shit. And you gotta make all the dishes like credit so made all the dishes, look pretty, and that was interesting because I was I didn't have time like prep anything out. So I did make everything tastes good. 'cause he was going to come in. And just like do whatever he wanted to do. So he ended up like eating the food that I was styling. Yeah. You don't wanna taking me like that's well. Yeah. Please. Good. So yeah, he he was he was stoked on on like every time you tasted it. And he was like, oh, more better watch out. And I was like coming in my pants. It doesn't even matter. If you just be nice 'cause that's like this is happening in my life right now. That's yeah. That would feel like peeking for me four. And then I mean, he was just obviously smoking weed all day this crazy blunt like I've never even normal. People don't have access. And at the end of the day. That's the snoop and Willie Nelson level for. No, I've never understood when people try to give me but in there like dish. It is so loud. It's government grade. I'm like, so you telling me. The government has a fucking crop. Yeah. And it's like, hey, only give this to celebrities and rich people that good Lau. Yeah. So, and that's I think what was on our list. Yeah. And government growed. It was it was incredible. Like, I said at the end of the day. I was like do you? Do you roll those things yourself? I mean, it's like, I don't even know how humanly possible us like what are you trying to say you wanna hit it? And I was like. Yes, sir. I had never worked with any of these people. I just turned around. I was like y'all I'm get high. And they're like fucking do it. I ended up getting high with snoop, and I was just like ripped like cleaning and like taking everything down and shit a blunt. It was like this giant blunt that was like three inches wide and like. It was like an insane. He's gives you a Snickers bar this. And he I mean he was this amount of smoke. That was in the kitchen. It was so funny because you can't say shit to snoop. It was the pictures. Put a fan, and they're all P as and shit really opening fanning out, and he didn't give a fuck. It was. It was a great, but they have like a fifty percent gray scale. No, that's the photo. That's big kitchen. So happy to hear that that experience was exactly what I hope because I was watching your Instagram stories and was like the shit looks. It was a real fucking became in there with an amazing entourage. And they were all like so sweet. And he's amazing like real wise and grounded yet that ass like he's the he's all want him to be. Yeah. Yeah. So when a celebrity delivers that exact. I've never heard anyone talk down on snoop the whole evening that I've heard is people are just like, hey might show up. That level of celebrity though, it doesn't matter consequences if you don't show up. Parties and stuff that I'm like, yo yo said snoop was going to be here. Maybe. Like, we talked about he's on the fucking flyer. Yeah. We waited a long time for him to be ready. And that's how it goes how it goes in his manager came in and was like all right. You guys have like forty five seconds. New bill. All along did y'all shoot for maybe like an hour. Oh, yeah. It was like fucking thirty shots in an hour though. You know, I mean, it was crazy. We were all sweating hold night for but we pulled it off. And I mean, it's it's pretty funny now on sale now. I can't even get my hands on the book. Yes. So insane. I don't know. What's going on is sold out? I don't know I ordered it from Amazon like a month ago really still distribution issues at Amazon with our book and a couple other books really be one of them. They're like ordering algorithm was all fucked. That's as good co-, my mom. She'll text me Michel order our book sometimes like give to a friend. And then she'd be like it hasn't got here yet. I don't work for. Don't me. Explain the internet one more. So when you're not food styling, you also do a pop-up miracle burritos do. Yeah. Where'd your where that come from that came from love a burrito? Pretty much like we asked him in echo park, chango close. And even though it was like a half ass. Breakfast burrito is kinda like everybody who's breakfast breed. If you need one when you do all the time. And so it was kind of like sad and kind of feeling avoid as well. And then we call it. It's a cross between like resurrecting lot food from like, a Grateful Dead show or like any sort of jam band. And then like, but also like elevating it to a really nice quality high quality meal. Yes. I went last time. I was Bob dot com. Thank you. I can bring back that phrase. He sure can't. Thank you. Rosa rotating from the sitting a long bench table, and you had like chips and salsa at all the little tables and everything like that. But I was by myself, and I was like how ham can I go. But for someone come over here in mind, judge the fuck outta me. Nobody gets judged. Yeah. I was gorgeous. And you do you do them every now. And then so when you're next one's up. We will let everybody know cool. Yeah, we tried to do at once a month. But you're Pragnell pretty fucking pregnant. Yeah. Just like. Yeah. Oh my God. I'm. Surprised me? Yeah. Anybody?

Pretty fucking pregnant. Did I realize how gnarly it is that your body changes that much in nine month? Yeah. Like crazy.

Here train like stand up outta the chair. And like I was like, oh my fucking guy. I'm six months, but I can believe that when Dami nine months, not even all the way all the way stick to. You know, it was it was like a little too deep in the back really leaned forward. And it's like there's not you can't just like. And there's a lot of. Toys. Fucking. The long winded. So funny. I love those moments that you feel yourself getting older stranger light you of them. I don't. I'm like do I've ever heard. It was what is like a year and a half ago or something I was getting into bed or PJ bottoms on it. And I got in I know in Averis strange way and the crotch of my PJ bottom just fucking exploded. Like, I shredded affair pants. I don't like what is going on with my body shack bother changers. Broken. Breeze. Alone shows. What matter how good you feel about your body if appear panic slowed while you're wearing them, you're really going to take a look in the mirror, and that's what I did anyone ever fuels hundred coughing about their buddy, except maybe one person doing the rock Johnson pretty confident as he should. Yeah. Puts the word. He has total control over his face muscles. That's true. Almost. How is he not done a cookbook yet if you'll so obvious I wanna smell what he's cooking? He wants you to smell what he's cooking, but not can't rest. Secrecy ever said, do you wanna taste what the rockets cooking? Now says can you smell? It wants to know are you here with me if you worked on Snoop's book, and then the rock career high. I mean seems like it should go the other way, I would not. So if you smoked weed was new on his book, I think you'd have to go work out with the rock on his. To die that day. You'd have to like horse with him in gym do everything does. Yeah. And you die. I would. That would be no shea shea to you. Thank you. I mean, if you want me to die. I do wanna rock. I want to know what food trend you hope guy soon. I can give you an example one I hate unicorn food since our unicorn colored played into a rainbow when did that happen all unnatural colors that you ever even like want, but rainbows or UniFrance rainbow identified in my childhood, they were just like who made crossover? I don't know. Would asshole took fucking unicorn which is. Tony. Maybe care bears was a care bears. Unicorn and that they had that care when on the rainbow, Sean valleys. Eighties. Kids know, what's up stare? Would it be those pitch meetings? Fucking network executives doing a line of blow up to table crank up. I that for some reason that's always how I picture it to always a giant line of cocaine approving. Because he's a pineapple under the seat. Yes. This little kid has a sailor tattoo on his fucking forum that he talks to the characters name but tuna Pete. Totally fine. Totally. The bomb. That's applicable Leitner. Head. Greenland, and she what she could open and close the garage door. Artie, the strongest men in the world, he was an adult man who wore a onesie just wandering around the neighborhood. What the fuck was this show the fucker? Yes, tiny. He no. Deepal is Washington talking about. Anyone who knows? It was a bizarre show, including. Yeah. And it was two redheaded brothers cables fair enough fair enough. I don't show was audience for that. I mean, we watched it the kids in the California me and my brother. Very. What do you hope goes away? Just fucking thinking that meets super cool. I still kind of blown away with the absence of actual consideration for. Yeah. A little obvious, and I'm not even trying to like be that beyond trend with art. But I'm mostly win. Like being a cool thing to like, oh, everyone likes baking. We know. Let's move on. It's. I don't know if we covered on the pod. But there was a maybe Senate to there was an article saying that during the nineties there was like this huge boom in like bacon that they had like excess baking they did a whole campaign to traffic cool. And this is around the time of like the. They pitched Carl's junior and doing the mater and all these things and fucking work. And now it's fucking. Our? Aching. Cool to an slot bacon on top of bacon and call it a sandwich. Yeah. I mean, putting an egg on it trend is I think kind of fading. That's nice but an egg on it. Yeah. Now. What's a northerly food that you should never put Neg on like cereal. Well. Sweet. But you you're super familiar because you've been a vegetarian for so long with old school like heavy vegetarian foods, which is what I also was was a win for you family. Okay. Yeah. That's it. We're talking like brags and fucking lentils and Brown rice, and like Newton shit like what's an old school hippie like vegetarian food that you wish maybe had another moment in tofu? A bad fucking rap. It's so bonkers it's bad of soya argument. Yeah. And it's complete bullshit. It's like all you have to do is look to a culture that has been eating it for thousands of years in Asia. It's like, oh, the healthiest people. It's like none of them have talking man bibs either. Everybody's so concerned about the estrogen, but they're not concerned about the estrogen of the animals that they eat. But but about plant estrogen we're gonna metabolize more efficiently. Like, what are we talking all a product of the fucking marketing. You know, it's the meat in the dairy companies fucking giant they? Yeah. And because it's like hemp illegal. Yeah. It's like, oh, yeah. Why because you can use it for fucking everything. Of resource you can like put on your body where under close stuff, you can survive on a burn it. Whatever. So the same thing happened with tofu. I mean, it's crazy. I won't be like, well, it's just so bland it's like, yes. Everything unseasoned. Do you think you're gonna bloom boiled chicken? Hang on chicken field. Fuck. That does not. What would that be trenches? And I'm talking about somebody being put a chicken or an egg on chicken. And it'd be like that is fucking. Logistics. God feel when I drive barbecue place, and they have a pig. Yes. Yes. As the mascot KOMO in out of me. Guys. I don't understand his own lately. One of doers. Make it a big fucking fat ass you. Yeah. Yeah. Lay me the Jones should be on the cover of every barbecue. Just shirt shirtless. Yeah. I I want to have the body confidence of Jones. Shade. I want to feel good about my body. Does Jones used to be in shape? But I feel like the soy argument against tofu is like what people are frayed of looking like Alex Jones right now. We'll the estrin shut the fuck up anyway, Fido, estrogen it's from a plant and actually helps you process other Cormo. It's like does the absolute opposite. As what they like. Even like you would have to consume so much tofu for the even fuck in matter like well. Yeah. Yeah. And the crossover though, I think is that like process soy is fucked. Oh, yeah. That's an everything. And that's not a doesn't tofu problem. No problem. Another problem. All right. We're not giving up tortilla chips because corns also and fucking everything. I know I know total smear campaign. Was tough like when you were going to school and like other kids and vegetarian if they ask you about your diet. Like did you have questions of the young age? Mom, dad, like, why do we not eat? Well, it was interesting because I was raised on a farm like in the middle of nowhere in Kansas, and like total like country style, everything super small high school all schools, and I was the only Jewish vegetarian and then my dad built. But that's my might be. Why I'm good with words? My parents taught me how to throw zingers. But yeah, it was fuck up. I would like I would have a sack lunch every day. And it was like dialed in every I think those jealousy thing. I wanted my shit back fuck off and would get. And I would get. Go each of baloney sandwich meat. Yeah. Was just like I'm gonna be overheating. The sprouts. I would I remember a couple times. I mean, I've had little smokies thrown at me from across. Real time. You get it in your mouth. Just like, you know. Tom. Joke toss it. It was stupid shit. Like that. You know? It's like I wouldn't get up to go get a milk or something, and they would put like bologna in my peanut butter and jelly or whatever. But like do that make you think of energy? I'm about to have one. I'm about to raise a real dumb. Mothers. Did that ever make you be like I wish that I was like other kids or that? Are did you dig in more on like, I'm fucking proud of vegetarian eight graph. Just like stay in the windows. Locking is with them. Yeah. No it never did. The meat thing. Never. I never felt left out because it was just like it made so much sense to me from such a young age in my parents were vegetarian explaining to. They will it started off. Actually, my dad was he was a collegiate athlete, and so he he's a can't city. Boy, he's big boy he was a thrower for KU. So, you know, he's waited. But then he started to realize that he could work out sooner after he ate if he didn't eat meat and then maximize workout maximize his rocket. And then after that, the revolution hit and became way, more of a moral thing. So so then yeah, that's how it started. And just a belief system of China peaceful. Protesters enough violence on earth is it's like, you know, if I can take part in not contributing to that, then that's all I can do at that level. So that's how I mean it made sense from really small age. Casey, small small vegetarian. I think sometimes we have a lot of people cook with our book and coke with kids, which is always awesome. The and some of them have been like, yeah. I'd like I don't really let them read it because of the language, but I think they are trying to figure out how to have that conversation with their kid about where their food comes from. This is interesting too. Because a lot of kids choose for themselves, which is like baller, and I've always said because people ask like how I became vegetarian and then begin and a lot of the time it was because the protagonist somebody told movies is an animal that I was just like I can't watch on its web. And then eat my mom's driest, pork chops and not put that shit together. I just didn't have the cognitive distance. Like for real my brother's like shut the fuck up, Michelle and sensitive. You've got them early. But it is funny. I feel like you either get that bullied out of you as a child or you fucking dig your heels. And I dug in you, Doug. That's how it goes my brother, he he tried. But. It's more a lot more acceptable. Especially to just be talking about it like people do that dang when they figure out there like where vegan that they're just like, oh, I tried veganism for a little bit. Or like, I don't eat all that much meat. And they sort of like, dude, I'm not judging you soak it like if you're uncomfortable with your diet. I'm not I'm not gonna sit here and fucking tell you what you know, how fucking difficult. It isn't how obnoxious people can be. Yes. It's very like we this all time we live in Los Angeles. It's so easy to be here. So fucking and the fact that like people are even like those people that are debating, whether they should be or if they can be or whatever they don't apply to you know, like the problem because they're most likely getting meat. That's like well source, or you know. Yes, that it was just like guilt ridden already purchased better choice thought. Yeah. Absolutely. Like I like with my little mistakes personality. My goal is to kind of like with all the divisiveness. Happening right now. It's like, we don't need it. We just need to like come together. Everybody loves food. We eat together. But let's be fucking conscious members coming from because like factory farming. You know, the existence of evil. Yeah. It's it's people work there at the environment. It's for the animals like there's no winners other than these massive corporations. Yeah. Almost see the fuck in talking heads and pundits. And people that are in the pocket of these corporations. They make up corey's yell at ten. What would crews I hope to see pita support the Republican party because Democrats are trying to kill all the cows. That's what he just. Sean are like hold up. We're checking our Email. My I didn't get that memo feel like topped here in that communications team. What kind of Texan are you Ted Cruz that you're not pro cow killing? I don't. Avocados either questionable person. I mean, all those guys. Texas does not really we don't like to cruise you re elected him. So. His his muttonchop so weird that style has never been in fashion. What they're in the civil war mutton chops rock jetty, good, call Ted fashion since war. Virtue, signaling. Facial. I think just like look, I can grow it. Really? No one was questioning. It's not all smooth here. I can grow patching. Just fucking food. I wanted to maybe eat. Oh, yes. I tell people outside. I'm like, look, humans aren't animals. I'll eat them on the fucker. About probably serve it up real nice to. You would stick it in America burrito. The worst, man. Follow along with your food styling and all your food misadventures. Maybe see you hanging out with snoop. Who knows what goes up on her gram guide her Instagram of you working with during the Russian? Find you. Well, Instagram is the best way. It's the vegetarian space station, which is great. I mean, one of the things I got stuck with when I started doing my little weird cooking show a while ago. And you know, it's like a band has shitty name in. Oh, but it's like it's it's too far. Yeah. Fetch transportation. I've no idea what it means. Can't change nirvana. Now. With it. Perfect.

U.S. To Tell Barcelona Attendees: Steer Clear of Huawei

"Are you hiring with indeed you can post a job in minutes set up screener questions than zero in on your shortlist of qualified candidates using an online dashboard get started today at indeed dot com slash podcast. That's indeed dot com slash podcast. With what's news? I'm Charlie Turner in New York for the Wall Street Journal, the world's largest telecom expo takes place in Spain. Starting Sunday and front and center will be the US's spat with Chinese telecom giant wall way. We'll have more in a moment. I hear some headlines Friday was a tough day for food company. Stocks following news from Kraft Heinz it stock lost more than a quarter of its value after craft Hines wrote down the value of its craft and Oscar Mayer brands by more than fifteen billion dollars, Wall Street Journal reporter anti-gas barrow says that when Kraft and Heinz merged in two thousand fifteen the companies felt the brands would be better off together than apart. What they didn't fully anticipate was how much pressure. These brands are under by changing consumer habits. Not only are people wanting to eat more natural foods with simpler ingredients, but they also are shopping in different places. They're not getting all their food at one grocery store. There's. Convenience stores drug stores, Amazon, and this has really hurt the value of some of its biggest brands like craft and Oscar Mayer the right down caused craft Hines to post a fourth quarter loss and the company cut its dividend. Craft Hines also said it was cooperating with an SEC investigation into accounting practices in the company's procure division and gas barrel says a cost cutting that Kraft Heinz enacted wasn't enough to cover the investments. The company needs to make in its brands. The company needs to invest more in its brands because they're being encroached on by these newer, trendier brands that have simple ingredients and that really appealed to consumers. The Wall Street Journal's anti-gas barrel smartphone users typically give personal information including very intimate details to abs-, but what they don't know is that in many cases, the apps, then share the sensitive information with Facebook. Whether the user belongs to Facebook or not the Wall Street Journal reported that away. Popular apps, totaling tens of millions of downloads have been sharing sensitive data entered by users. The findings alarmed some privacy experts. Who reviewed the journals testing Facebook is under scrutiny from Washington in European regulators for how it treats the information of users and non-users alike. Some examples of the journals testing instant heart rate HR, monitor the most popular heart rate app on Apple's I o s sent a users heart rate to Facebook immediately after it was recorded real estate app. Realtor dot com whose parent is a subsidiary of Wall Street Journal parent, News Corp, sent the social network the location and price of listings that a user viewed noting which ones were marked as favorites. The owner of the Super Bowl champion. New England Patriots has been caught up in an anti prostitution sting. Robert Kraft is facing two misdemeanor. Charges of soliciting prostitution by Jupiter, Florida police as part of a multi city bust in the area. Police officials say there was video. Evidence of individuals including craft entering a location where the prostitution allegedly occurred. A spokesman for Mr. Kraft's said the team categorically denied that the owner engaged in any illegal activity still ahead for the US. This weekend's telecom expo in Barcelona is all about while way. Are you hiring with indeed you can post a job in minutes set up screener questions than zero in on your shortlist of qualified candidates using an online dashboard get started today at indeed dot com slash podcast. That's indeed dot com slash podcast. The world's biggest telecommunications show is taking place in Barcelona Spain starting this weekend in the Wall Street Journal says the fight between the US and China's wa-wait technologies will take center stage at the event, which has dubbed Barcelona's mobile world, congress or Barcelona m WC a large delegation of US officials has heading to the event in a bid to ratchet up the offensive against. Wow way. Joining us from London is Wall Street Journal, tech media and telecom reporters, stew stew, first of all who is going to be in this delegation. That's headed to Barscelona from the US. There's to be some efficiencies from the US department as well. As some telecom regulators like the Federal Communications Commission chair pie. Now, there are basically two main strands to this affair aren't there. While way is the leading supplier of telecom gear, and there are worries the company could be forced by the Chinese government to spy on or disabled rival companies networks. Yeah, that's right. So while why. Is the world's number one maker of cell tower equipment and also the world's number two smartphone brand with the US is really concerned about is is that first bit that wireless carriers will buy their equipment, but up in cell towers, round their countries, and they're worried that if Beijing asks them to spy or to disrupt communications while we can't say, no. So the US delegation is not really in Barcelona this year to hobnob with foreign counterparts or industry exacts or check out the latest gear. It's there to persuade foreign telecom companies not to use Weiwei's gear. Right. That's right. They typically go every year just to see what the latest trends in the telecom industry, are I it's important to keep up with the latest trends that they can make accurate and good regulatory decisions this year with they're going to try to do is talk to other governments as well as private wireless carriers and other countries and say, hey, these are the risks of using my way, we we think this is a bad idea. And. One of the things that secretary of state Pompeii was said yesterday was that we're going to tell governments. Hey, if you decide to put while wake women in your country, that's gonna mean America's not gonna be able to work with you that might mean, not having a US embassy or military base there. There's one right now, the US is really focused on European countries because they're the closest to launching five G, the next generation, wireless network technology, isn't that right? That's right. Five G. You've probably heard a lot about it. We're currently most most people in America are using four G five G is an upgrade and that it's going to allow to be transferred much more quickly, and it could enable new technologies like self driving cars internet connected factory. Opponents factory components and just everyday objects like sneakers or or a heart monitor to be web connected. And as a consequence that means all these things could be potentially hacked as well. So the US has focused on the places that are launching five Fers and outside of the US and China that's going to be Europe. And that's where while he's also very popular will is that the US. Biggest worry, you just mentioned it hacking. Yeah. There's a couple of different scenarios. The most obvious example is that anybody who makes us cell tower technology could hack into it and do bad things with it. The and the most scary example, or most visible example, would be taking control of a driverless car. But there's other things that can do to anybody who makes us equipment. And the other two makers are are in the Nordics that's Nokia in Finland Ericsson in Sweden. They have the ability to tap into that equipment to see let's say, for example, your heart rate is or see how many how many planes factories making. So there's a whole bunch of things that we probably can't even imagine right now that a that could be captured within the future has always denied this, right? Over the past couple of years. The company said it would never spy or do Beijing's bidding. Yeah. They said that they would never do that. Because number one it would be corporate suicide and two they would lose all their customers. And that's the same thing. They would lose all their customers. And that they've never cooperated with any governments with any further. The Chinese government says it would never do such a thing either. We'll haven't the US's efforts to isolate while we had mixed results. So far in Europe. I mean, why always technology and equipment are superior and cheaper. Isn't that? Right. That's right. Lot wireless carrier say that they're months ahead of their of the rivals in making this five G technology. There have been mixed results. The secretary of state on pale. A did go to eastern Europe a couple of weeks ago to warn allies not to use technology has gotten some somewhat warm responses, but on the other hand, you have places like Germany, which Wall Street Journal reported this week, they're probably going allow while way they're leaning towards allowing while way in the country here in Britain looks like the UK thirty s or going to reach some sort of compromise. They do acknowledge the US concerned that yes, China could order while way to do whatever it wants. But they believe that while we could still exist in Britain with some restrictions. Let's be clear about this. What are the exact days? This conference is being held in Barcelona. It starts on Sunday. And it runs to Thursday, Wall Street Journal media, technology and telecom reporters do. Joining us from London. Thanks to thanks for having me. And that's what's news. I'm Charlie Turner in New York for the Wall Street Journal.

From Suicidal to Inspired: Interview with Kevin Hines, Greg Van Borssum, and Matt Runnells

"Hello and welcome you found the social work podcast. My name is Jonathan Singer and I'll be your host as we explore all things social work <music>. Hey there podcast listeners Jonathan here in today's episode of the social work podcast. I I speak with three men who were on a mission to prevent suicide. Matt Reynolds Kevin Hines and Greg Van Borsen shared their stories of managing their own suicidal thoughts how they care for themselves and care for others and how they're building building a global network of support for suicide prevention Kevin Hines name. You might have heard of <hes>. He's only one of thirty six six people have ever survived jumping off the golden gate bridge in since his suicide attempt in two thousand. He's become a global ambassador for suicide aside prevention for saw. Kevin speak in two thousand fourteen year after he published his autobiography cracked not broken and in two thousand eighteen I had the pleasure of watching his film suicide the ripple effect at the American Association of Suicide Allergy Annual Conference Kevin and was joined by two members of his conquer collective. Matt Reynolds who's the CEO and founder of Mindful LAS nonprofit charity from Melbourne Australia and Greg Van Borsen. Who's bio reads that he's the world's youngest professional natural bodybuilder a multiple black doc belt martial artists and an award winning Hollywood filmmaker now I spoke with Matt Kevin and Greg at the two thousand eighteen American Association of Suicide Algae Annual Conference and these guys were so pumped up about out suicide prevention during the interview so full of inspirational quotes and stories that the by the end of the interview I found myself speaking with the cadence and freezing of a motivational speaker. which are not so before we get to the interview review? I want to give a big shoutout to Francesca Haley. She's an MSW student at Stony Brook University for generously donating and transcript of episode one. Oh six six a Hashtag zero suicide world in interview with David Covington. If you love the transcripts and wanted donate your time in exchange for a shout out on the podcast send me an email and now without further ado on episode episode one hundred and twenty five of the social work podcast from suicidal to inspired an interview with Kevin Hines Greg Van Boredom and Matt Reynolds so Kevin. What did you learn about life and death after jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge while I learned that that I I made the mistake my life you know falling falling two hundred twenty feet twenty five stories to seventy miles an hour and four seconds <hes> in the air. I assume just done in order to die. God please save me when the water survived of course. I learned that I never had to do that. In the first place I learned that I didn't have to learn the hard way like I did and nobody else who here's my story needs to learn the hard way like I did and so they can recognize in the greatest of painful moments that their thoughts of suicide do not have to lead to action just because your brain rain your distorted reality your delusion. Your psychosis is telling you have to die. It doesn't mean you have to listen if you can recognize in times lives of crisis like I do now. I have these thoughts regularly. They will never kilby Jonathan because every time that kind of pain I'll turn the Greg Alternative Matt Else. I need help right now and they'll help because I've honest about my pain and if I can be honest about my pain. I expect people in my life to do the same so you've got got. These support guys on the podcast can't see this because this is audio. So how do you guys support each other. We keep in touch a lot and by phone call by skype by Google messages in any way shape or form at an if someone drops off the right off for a period of time where under the coal and you can tell him that the white people type the way that right anything thing you can see that things are changing and you're on the phone to them and we're all prepared to fly to each other's doorstep as well so the supports that one hundred percent and I think that goes for anybody we deal with and I may not just in part of team ripple a pot of a bond. It's anybody so people anyone I have helped at high has one number and twenty four seven answer and we've got other people we put online we put them in touched professionals and we always there for them like because we're there for them because we care we know what it feels like to go down that path and the doctor sets in and the light fades and you know the punches a hitting talks and fighting. You and you can't fly back anymore and you know you know what that feels like and you don't want to see someone go that path so we will always be there for them so for each other heaps of support and it's because we actually love and care about the probably yeah so you guys have managed to do this but and I say guys intentionally because this is one. I think the biggest issues that we have is that guys guys don't support each other right. There's not this culture of like hey can. I talk to you. Can I call you up. You guys have managed to do this. How did you break pass the stereotypes the barriers about what it means to be a man about what it means to be guy in society to do this for each other think for make up to the point of Baynes so sick and tired of being sick and tired and and and the point that I was at the very bottom of law went on went through Amazon suicidality action and the Tim sit there was only one way out for me one white guy on that was up for me and that was reaching out it to people like this and getting past that moment because the wiles living was no way of law at odds on either deserved more and I had valued and self worth of often often how I wanted to get bar and it wasn't that inside there was one way to do it and that was to speak up and rate Shannon in in doing that yeah of lost a lot of nights and I have a lot of people ten back but really they're not the people that are my lawf- so it's given me a level of acceptance as I made a fund <hes> another level to my self <hes> value and worth so it's been a blessing and <hes> to to make people are Cadillac will just talking with with what Greg said Auden with how Kevin's helped the people like us. It's not just everyday I originally met Kevin through saying he stuff online so without even having to reach yet and same stuff now with meeting Greg. Let's say people put up person social media stuff and an aunt follow that and that's how I keep well every day so stories of Harpen when when I help people heal so storytelling real hell when you have this story the ripple effect right what what is what is the message that you're trying to send with. This movie is very simple. It people may counters title so ominous that was on purpose suicide. The ripple effect isn't just about the death that we've lost. It's about the ripple affect of hope that we are transforming. People's lives with all around the world. We have a group of a core conquer collective that is as almost forty people strong from <hes> from from a great many different continents and they're all telling their story. They're sharing their moments sharing their truth and they're doing it. In a way that size based in Evanston form they're doing away or are you looking for a fact talking about the dangers of the methods and talking about which we do but we always talk about the recovery and how he founded how he living living in and more importantly how we stay in it every day. All of us have workout regimens life regimens and routines that keep stable on this car clydes if you don't you're off off the team like you have to understand if you're not working tirelessly for your brain health every day and you don't get to be a part you you. Don't get to jump in and play as we were all a part of the same team or friends. We're family. I we are this group right here. We're brothers. The ones you see right in front of you. The <hes> the rest of the forty our brothers and sisters and we are brothers and sisters keepers and we are here for each other no matter what no matter the pain despite the pain in spite of the pain and we're all going to thrive were do well because of how hard we work 'cause nothing good ever came out at my dad taught me that the since I was born I think and secondly we are who we are and what we are because we care so much about each other each other's Welby so brain health. You talk about physical health. I can see all the three of you clearly in good physical shape. But what do you mean by brain health. What is brain in health. How do you get there in. What is it that the people who are listening to this should know about that. It's health. I don't think there's a disparity between the physical brain brain health they work together and if you're physically out of shape and you're eating the wrong foods all has a really bad effect on your head space if you have slow self worth same thing and and so that affects the mental side of things and then the Sophos because we call it the laziness of depression. You got to do anything anymore because you're feeling down then it doesn't matter it doesn't it's not worthwhile and suddenly the real. Rut and so. It's very important. Eat the right foods you get the right. Amount of rest like sleep is very important. I know I don't sleep enough still because I have so much to do. I think that's all of us and they have Kevin's living even on fumes right now and you know Matt equally as a sleep enough. He's emailing all the time to get the charity moving back home and we'll get such important work to do that with sometimes we under sleep you know but we know what the causes four so. We know if we're getting off the scale a bit and things that are going. We'll we'll go back and sleep with me. Let's get some rest or your turn off line for a few days off but the physical zeal regiment. I keep very physically I do. Martial arts probably about thirty hours a week of got white China. I do a lot of exercise and I make sure that I'm doing a lot of teaching teaching because I love to teach him pass on and to try and make strong resilient children before I have to fix them and they broken adults and I think that's one of the things that happens to be and that's rewarding in itself because you know you're you're getting getting to the young and you can help them move forward but all that physical mental health it'll works hand in hand that Dodd mannerist and you're good to go you know what gray right there about about helping the children with with their wellbeing <hes> I really do believe this country made a fatal mistake in not teaching our children how to how to maintain their brain health and wellbeing and I think that <hes> one of the things I not working right now for children in in fifth to eighth grade. <hes> is a series called. Iris Dragon Dragon Books are cartoon series that that teach young kids about what mental health is in Layman's terms. They can understand through cartoons. It's fascinating. It's empirically studied Canada. It's helping people all over the world their online digitally and I and I give plug now because <hes> I'm trying to give a plug because really it works it gets it gets these young kids to say oh. Oh that's what brain pain is. How do I get away from it when it happens. How do I get to safety what I've been paying and what happens is these kids are growing up and they are actually asking for help right off the bad as opposed the culture of kids that we've built in this country who keep it all inside bottled up then it grows in a burst of rage aggression violence substance use sort of domestic dispute mute suicidal thoughts ideas or actions for our thoughts. Don't have to become rations. Yeah I think the big one sign what these two boys have said but it's it's doing things on a holistic stick approaching and gathering up more and more tools and techniques and strategies every single day on this journey to combat my wellness. It's not leaving it at exercise. It's not you know we we talk therapy and medication that there but they've got to be part of an overall plan on Al Mattie twenty-six but I've had been in on this journey with diagnosis <hes> gone gone back i-it's and I'm still will wake up tomorrow and find more outlets and escapes to control what I'm experiencing and that's L. and more strings to that bar to become a bit of fodder and that's a bit of fodder on my mental illness in my Brian Pints. Do things everyday practice gratitude compassion. M- awfulness meditation Kevin talked about nutrition and exercise an important to that so everything's on a holistic approach we self-discipline dying because I know it's going to give me a better opportunity at tomorrow to leave. Well also said toolbox signed but it's it. It's at the end of that. It's all nine steps that work for you because the steps are worked for Mattioli for having worked for me and vice versa so I have to work at what works for me and that becomes uh-huh my file size and on went on gnome sliding down into depression and things out working in the wheels spinning. I don't let it get down. I start on that process before it gets down so I can keep myself moving forward and that's a big thing not to let it get down to the bottom of the barrel exactly by my wife does best when when I'm having a a paranoid delusional depressed manic episode she any one of those saying this is what she does she does driving give me fifty fifty percents right now and I just and it's it's automatic now and she says I just do it and I'll tell you John. It usually really brings me to a place where I'm like. Okay get the next hour. At least I get the next hour and then maybe I'll go go hit the gym or I'll go for a run or or I'll sit down and meditate. Take some time from levelness <hes> or I'll just I'll just watch my favorite TV show and realized that I can slow down and I don't need Uber fake of life to run my life. I need need to slow down. Take a breath put work aside. Put working out aside and just veg out on some revenge the dragon whatever it's called you know Sir so brain health physical health. You've made a really nice connection between the two things I think is absolutely mostly right. There's we can't we can't separate it in any practical way you also. I really liked what you said about you. Have a plan for taking care of yourself and you recognized cognizitive when things are starting to not go well or you have a partner like Margaret who is able to say hey dropping can jimmy fifty right and that's a physical Q. What are some things that you have re have seen that people have misconceptions about that. They Miss Understand about about suicide about depression about these sorts of things that they address them wrong. They respond to them wrong. They they they they don't understand what are some insights the you you can provide from your own lived experience about this so. I think one of the things we we human beings make mistakes when we were looking at someone in that kind of pain. Is We judge them. <hes> we say to them things like. Oh snap out of it. Get over it move on. It's all in your head well yeah. It starts in my brain. That's that's where the brain head goes to the body. It's all it's all connected. <hes> what we forget to do is recognize that everybody's pain. Thresholds are different and if one person pain tolerance level of brain rain is one thing is not the same for the next and that person is uber senses like I was growing up as a kid so sensitive anybody who ever stuck with the rest of my life <hes> <hes> we need to talk to our our young folks about how important it is to recognize the value of their human existence and we we in a sense with this eight of technology. We've lost connection a big way. We have this new connection. It's on our palms her hands. It's this device that we're so focused on and so <hes> destroyed with because we're not focusing on the things that are right in front of US human to human connection and bond so we teach our children in this digital age which they need to take time for family friends an actual real life human relationships and put the phone down and put the tablet down and take a breath with your friends and family who love you dearly and recognize in that love that you are valued. You are worthy and you deserve to be here. We're also I think we've forgotten. We've lost touch with the outdoors. Agree a hundred percent. I can't stand the mobile phone technology and what was done to separate us and make it so isolated even go to these forms communication. We've never been so isolated. People and there's a few speakers third should mention the nine th but I I really want to slap them in the head because they've said things like off. You never looked up from you. Find again. That's fantastic. Just keep believing through social media and it's it's the most idiotic thing I've ever heard someone say because if you don't have either way face to face contact with something you don't see the secrecy that make you understand Dan. Someone's going through something and it's the simplest thing of getting back into nitrogen going for a walk because we're living in this world. That's been created for forgetting about the one that's always been here you know and so we we live in these boxes all the time. We don't get outside and breathe that real Aaron good touch a tree for wonder up the beach. I mean they had the smallest things it can just really bring you back down again and let you relax. We've forgotten that we've negated did it because we're living on electrics and I think that's exactly right. We we have to start stepping back a bit in taking face to face communication talking people to people. I mean one of the things I say Ada. PAYPAL is on Fridays. It's called Friday the fraud I promise is you call three people you go through your phone on the way home from work guy three three people you haven't spoken on quite a long time and call them up because the size of life and so simple but everyone can do it. Look through and actually speak to someone you know. I remember back in the nineties. When the the the answering machines were in people love to leave a message but they were disappointing answer the odds can leave your message and that started from there and now we've become so used to texting out. It's like pick up the phone and talk to them. You get so much done in such a short period time plus. He could say how you doing you know and I think that's very important for us. All that's there. I'm a big strong block and so all these guys see because I was a really strong block. When I'm with my real bad size of depression I was about three millimeters wide from taking my life. My wife went to my friends and she said Greg's in a really bad place. I I hate to say three of them. said he's a tough guy. He'll be swayed and they forget that that that depression and all those issues are brain issues and they come from the knockout from the neck down. You can the biggest strongest Garner physically if you hedge letting it down. You know really bad spice interim bit. That's I think it's a beautiful thing so you know in the question that I asked misconceptions this conceptions Kevin. You said that people judge also heard that <hes> you're really talking about <hes> knowledge that everybody has different thresholds wrestled right there in different places you know Greg you made the beautiful point that connecting with nature the thing that is in our DNA about the world is really important. As is this beautiful idea of saying every Friday. I'm going to connect with three people. I think it's incredible as right now Jonathan. I'm currently working on a Web web application that has it many many forms many durations in the past but now it's it's coming together <hes> and it is going to say much about it but it is going to be a an APP that allows human connection to be the paramount. We're GONNA use social media <HES> <HES> and social media tools to get people in one place together to get them to put away their phones and to get them to sit down and engage engagements story and crisis counselors will be the moderators of these programs the apple get you visibly noticed online then and it will then you will physically get yourself to the location. Once you get yourself to the location the phones go in a basket and we get to work on what is the root of our problem and we need to do it together because the only way to grieve suicide the only way to fight mental illness the only way to fight brain pain is together in you in unison one one for all and all for one as a beautiful way of saying <hes> there is a value in the phone as a way of reaching out to people that you might not be physically next to but it shouldn't be the end. The end should be being with someone in person. It's bad utilize in that you know we got to roll with the punches and technologies a part of the world votes. I we're GONNA use it for what it's beneficial to us. We're not talk at schools and stuff. I talk about the morning how many of us get up and and that's how final looking at five for the first man in the morning and that's putting our happiness in external sources were looking for larks follows shares messages instead of getting up and being proactive instead of reactive so and it's using the phone in the afternoon it might be from self reflection or to write down goals to journal entry and get therapeutic. You can use that for really good reasons recent but I think you win the morning in the day and that's why I encourage everyone to get up of a morning and not be reactive to what is happening the outside world and folks no new right there and and getting out of bed of modern within a gene drive and bands too to give yourself the best shot at the. I got to roll the punch we'd technology. I think it's going to be here to stay so we're just GONNA use it for what to benefit cells in the best possible way Mapa all you twenty five year old twenty or it'd be super successful ultra rich. Get over that crap because in all honesty you know everyone wants. Put a time frame on it. Threes Tom or got to be ultra successful in four years. Tom Is you know what happens. When it happens you know want them done tons of stuff and it's it's taken years like fifteen years ten years and when you're trying to work was being better something the best way to avoid getting depression is to just keep on the path working towards it and don't worry about the in game just be in the game and it will happen when it happens and the minute you stop putting timeframe and the wheel starts spinning you'll stuck and very depressed and very. Dan and you'll probably give fishy. The why we are these days we instant gratification thing we have to understand that mastery and this is my Marshall Ashby forty-three years and I'm still don't feel close and walking. Does your door and as a tiny kid. It's a never ending journey to better yourself and success isn't a money thing I saw great comic a little while back in Sydney where at showed the modern human man and woman and it had had a guy running full speed with a stick on his with a carrot like a like a caravan but it was a whole water money and the end of it was a grave and that's exactly what we're doing. We're missing allies chasing the dollar and ending up in a gripe commander what happened but we're missing. Wonderful Life Ed because we think success is the dollar. It's not if you're off in the wilderness having a great time with the monkeys that's wonderful. That's that's accessible. That's what you WanNa do so whatever you have going for you work towards it and don't put a time limit on cages worked was it'd be much happier person. Patience is the key patience is key. Take your time. I'm doing it right the first time amazing and inspirational to talk to the three of you. What are your last thoughts for. The folks who are listening one main thing especially for any clinician or any any social worker going out into the front is understanding also just that the parents sometimes need a bit more work than the kid. Does I mean ideally the children's specially. My martial arts school. I've got a lot of kids go different forms of things that are on the spectrum different forms of mental health issues and the parents a lot of time will threaten them with Mental Health Cillizza punishment and it's a really big thing that we need to to nip in the bud before it gets out of hand because it should be seen as a safe place and a place where if a child is struggling that can go and that can be feeling safe and I can get the help. They need not as a threat. You know it's very deadly. It's absolutely catastrophic to the child's wellbeing. I get keyed off to my place who just says mom's threaten me with this month. Threaten me we're going back. There and I don't think that should be the case. I think they should know that that's a safe place. If they're having a hard time they can go there almost voluntarily so it doesn't lead to a hostile situation which involves law enforcement and that and also we've got training at home which is the mental health intervention team of the police force and these guys and girls are really well trained in how to do with mental health cases that don't going guns blazing they go in very very it quietly and they talk and they listen <hes> think if we do more of that the kids will be in a much better place in the states we have some cities have mental health unit so they have police officers that are specially trained to address mental health crises but some don't and it's a huge issue because if you're taught to say did you know everything's a nail your hammer right so right now <hes> <hes> <hes> my last point are going to be the resources that we that we provide so. I if you are in crisis right now and you don't like making a phone call or waiting on phone lines you can text C. N. Qr. Two seven four one seven four on the crisis text line. That is our occurred C. N. Q. or conquer your pain seeing QR censor occurred to talk about your mental health and Sanfer normalized the conversation. <hes> cues dancer ask the questions are Yucel. Have you made plans to take your life at our is for recovery because we know it's possible as I said earlier today. All of us sitting in this room are are living proof text conquer two seven four hundred for one if you don't want to do that the one eight hundred seventy eight to five national seuss average lifeline plus one for military veterans and and and finally go check out <hes> my youtube please YouTube dot com slash Kevin Hines. Here's why there are over. One hundred fifty videos knows all about mental health brain. Hell mind health all mental health all the time. They are free. They're yours. They're usable for tradings their usable in any any situation that can help someone who's mentally unstable find a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel so they can stay here and be here tomorrow therefore you take them. Use them share them. Show them in classes with your school. Show them with teachers. Share them with your students. Show them with your loved. Ones <hes> they're helping people all over the world <hes> through the power of lived experience disparaties critise and these guys are are in some of the videos right next to me because their stories are so moving and powerful and they're changing people's lives with their words. I'm just following up from that. It's it's con- compassion calmness compassion and empathy it was the discovery of visible in other people's columnists meeting Cav meeting in Greg and saying this stuff will ever social media in the work that they do. That enabled made a fond more strength within the bottom lock. Now I have <hes> the realize has strong ICAN actually Besa okay so for all those people out there that are struggling or <hes> just stick taught sadie angle envision living a healthy happy loft because one point auden that I didn't ever envisioned needed Michigan today with these boys but <hes> wildlife.

Waiver Wire! Hines, Snell, Kelley and More (09/15 Fantasy Football Podcast)

"This is fantasy football today from CBS sports. It's time to dominate your fantasy league. Here's some combination of Adam Dave Jamie Heath Ben. Paul. Man It's going to be a long night setting those waiver claims those fat bids and welcome to the show our first waiver wire episode of the season and we've got some really exciting running backs. Some big opportunities here hopefully though the injuries to James Caan or Lindsey are not are not too severe. I'm Outta Mazer with Dave Richard and Jamie Iceberg. I'd like to celebrate a new round of friendship with Dave Richard You know on Friday morning I was really mad because I sat Sammy Watkins but he told me to start Darius late over Sammy Watkins. So Dave you and I are back baby. Sorry friend requests not accept talk of a nope. You you win in on me really really bad off the air on texts. I could really taxed everybody but I think we'd get the explicit tag on the podcast right? The executives with Ben Shaggy be would not like it at all. So sorry. Next time you asked me for fantasy I'm going to say. Go Heath go to. Could've been. Sorry you're GonNa give me waiver wire advice today. I'm going to give everybody else waiver wire. I will mute. My speaking. JV. Bro Stephen Gostkowski. Yeah thankfully for him, you made that kick. Off. Would you cut them anyway? I probably would not, but I bring in. Addition for the job just in case, this is a problem. Ross Tucker tweeted that his contract is fully guaranteed for the year as a vested veteran. So he gets. Them. So, I'm not sure they're cutting them but fantasy managers might he? I think he was started in eight percent of leagues and I did see he like once I wanNA. League. That lasts. Seventy a screen shot. So pretty exciting stuff at week. One is in the books. All right. Who are your so recap the Monday night games. This is how a waiver wire works. We're GONNA START OFF, which was our top priorities right out of the gate and a little bit will give maims at East position, and then later in the show really dive in and we'll talk about a lot of names at each position but let's talk about top three waiver wire priorities Jamie who would they be? I'm GonNa give you four because are the four best and it's Ben's now this is the order Benny now nine hines Malcolm, Brown and Joshua Kelly, and that's NPR in non PPO or half. I would put brown ahead of fines but PBR I don't think it's close for me with hines ahead of Malcolm Brown Okay. So Dave your top then same for. Same three top three are definitely the same Snell number one regardless of format number, two, PR PR, Brown number three, and then Dallas Gutter. He deserves it. He's on the same catch paces in the he minds. They're both GONNA end up right now with What is it? One? Hundred, twenty, eight catches something like that. That's what they're on pace for anybody that's on pace for that. Yasser, you can have a spot on my fantasy bunch. So when you look at Snell versus hines. And even Snell versus Malcolm Brown or Josh. Kelley. The steelers are apparently optimistic that this is not a long term injury. So why would he be the number one option here when we know hinds Well, we don't know what his role will be, but it seems like he's going to have a role recipe season. The way that I phrased it in writing the column is if you WANNA void the steelers mess, you know that hines locked into his job. So I totally get it if you want to go Heinz I and on HQ on Monday a and looking at an early look at the waiver wire Chris Towers and and Heath Cummings both made the case Malcolm Brown should be the top running back added because he has the lead job for the rams right now, and you know he's GonNa get carries as opposed to hines who may not get more than seven or eight carries on a weekly basis. So I can get while you may WanNa flip order totally around no. So I think all three of these guys certainly interesting. But if I'm looking at it from the standpoint of who can win me a week in week two and then maybe at some point down the road when me another week. I think Benny's now has the high ceiling of that group and so conor unfortunately is dealing with another injury after two years of being injured and the fact that he couldn't come in when he was still on the sideline you know I I, don't know what the deal is I don't want to speculate on how bad ankle injury is but if it's a high ankle sprain and we find out on Tuesday afternoon. It could be several weeks. So for me I'M GONNA go with Snell He looked awesome. He didn't have any in the passing game which was troubling. But I think all three of those guys and the only reason I put Kelly in the same category with them is if something happens to Austin, ackward Kelly is going to be an absolute monster. So I, want all four those guys a piece of all for those guys can get it but Snell for me is the top priority to get just looking at what he could be for the steelers all when you saw connor on the sideline, did you see him at any point with his helmet? They didn't show him until the second half. So No. showed them once in the first half and he had his helmet. Okay. So maybe there was some speculation that maybe it wasn't an ANC over or just an ankle and that maybe it was something else. Who knows. But if they say ankle sure we'll go with it. I agree one hundred percent, Jamie. I I'm thinking about long term staying power and the him hides is going to be what he's going to be I. Don't think he'll ever be the every down guy for Indianapolis if something were to happen to. Taylor. But I do think that the steelers have seen what they've seen they saw James Get out of the gate slow and Then, he got hurt and they've got to think that that's you know he cow, can he be the bell cow rest of the season when he's already been hurt in the first half of one football game and then they saw benny smell do what he did running by the offense of line. He looked great. So I think at worst Snell's in a in a tandem spot now and he might end up being the best back in. Pittsburgh. And he had five games with sixteen or more carries last year. So they show they will go to him but he had I think only three catches in those games. So you've got you know basic. Basically. Somebody who's completely uninvolved in the passing game. Jalen Samuels wasn't involved the passing game yesterday so I'm not sure that. Happened down to though he was the one that they use the NABIS. Didn't do a lot with it, but he was the one on the field. Whereas Malcolm Brown was involved in the passing game. So I don't know it's interesting. It's like talk about staying power I, I am surprised to hear you guys both take any snow number one because if Congress Yankee. Around I I, I have no problem with somebody wants take Malcolm Brown I. But if you just follow what the reports were this off season that they're events are going to turn the job over to cam makers and the fact that he's still got fourteen carries in this game. Yeah. Being designed that they WANNA work him up and get him close to being ready to go to eventually take over. That job so I don't know how long Brown will be like this playing like this doing what he did. He was fantastic over four yards per carry like you said, three catches was great to see I don't think dialysis run defense is going to be very good. Especially vanish leaving the game. So if that's the best indication of how good he can be, we'll find out but I think Again, long-term is what you should be thinking as well as just week to, and so Malcolm Brown may not be the leading rusher for the rams for a several weeks span. long-term. I is it fair to say that hines has the clearest long-term outlet? Yes Okay And I basically. I mean is it fair to say Naim hines basically to Cohen maybe with more carries you know which is what we said that the be prior to the NFL draft. When they got filled rivers because he also. Yeah I guess. So they've said he's on pace for one hundred, twenty, eight catches. I've been saying all along seventy because he averaged fifty four catches in his first two years. So seventy was kind of the number I was looking at for him with Philip Rivers. I mean he may shatter that. It just as bad as it looked against Jacksonville he may shatter that well hopefully hopefully, it isn't that bad. Yeah Heinsohn. They played a couple of games without Marlin MAC. Last year hines had nine carries and one of those games he had four carries and a rushing touchdown. Another one of those games oddly enough you only had two catches in those games, but it's a different offense with the different quarterback who throws to his running back all the time. What James Robinson, who is roster and sixty nine percent of leagues is available. Where would you put him and I'll give Jamie's priorities again in art was Snell Hines Malcolm Brown Kelly in non PR was Snell. Brown hines Kelly if James Robinson is out there what do you do? I. I mean. He he he had a good game wasn't like. Blow your mind good game against the goals. But the fact that he had every every kid a cherry for the Jaguars and was involved in the passing game that shows you how much they like this kid and so We'll find out what they're gonNA eventually do with Mike while Armstead and Divino Zibo, you know when those guys are healthy and ready to go but there's a chance armstead may not play anytime soon and those Igbo who knows how that ankles GonNa you know recover. I think you're looking at Robinson as the guy for the Jaguars and the last couple of weeks you know once they got rid of four net that's all we've heard is how much they like this? What if Sony Michelle's available? He's sent rostered. Nah. I would put him behind I'd put behind all those other guys you know maybe have Kelly. If you need somebody to play right away just because you know he'll get guaranteed touches but I'd rather have. Kelly personally. Guys, is going to be a really tough week to set your priority. You're going to have so much foam. Oh, and they're going to be a ton of players that you want. Because you know in some of your leagues, a guy like James crowder might be available Daria Sleet and might be available even though they're roster and eighty percent of leagues right and then, and then there's the Paris Campbell in the viscous Chenault and there's Dallas Goddard and maybe you even want to Stream Logan Thomas this week and and all these running. Backs and then you've got Josh Adams of the world and the miles gaskins of the world where it's like, yeah, you know for gases. Okay. He's probably not going to be the dolphins starting running back. Maybe he will be as three solid games in a row for him dating back to last year respectable games. So players that sort of needs to be roster just to see where it goes. I don't know I mean we get a few weeks every year. What's like the waiver wire is loaded the waiver wires loaded right now isn't it? Now. It's Lee. The. Star quality wide receivers not there unless the guys that you mentioned are available around eighty percent range you know so. Anthony Miller's journals the Campbell's of the world they're not going to necessarily draw as much attention as the four running backs. We talked about daughter You know those those kinds of players because of what either they shown you in the past or the ability that they have after what you saw in week one. So that's the difference between those type of moves you could be making, but I do think you're going to see some scenarios week to and beyond you're like, Oh my God, I could have picked up Campbell or I could have picked up. For basically nothing and I missed on that because I didn't make a second waiver claim or third waiver claim or third FAB move to drop somebody who you may be hanging onto a and again, you don't want to overreact a week one. So you know like the guys that I listed to drop their some big name players there but you just have to sort of gauge which roster look like and what the upside versus the downside of some of these scenarios can be. And listen. We've a twitch stream tonight at eight o'clock pm. Eastern twitch. Dot Com slash F F today We might get some more injury information by that point things might change a little bit. So hop on their ask us your questions will be Jamie and I on which. will be me and Jamie on twitch excuse me twitch dot com slash F F today eight PM Eastern. Until Nine PM, and we'll rock and roll a lot of fun Dave mentioned Dallas, Godart? So. Yeah Go. Ahead discuss. I think that he's going to be a benefactor of Philadelphia not being able to run the football and I'm starting to wonder if they're not going to be able to run the football effectively very often this year to their own wine I, like the Lane Johnson's coming back that'll help them. But they they used him a hell of a lot and they were playing from behind and it looks like he's going to be an integral part of what they do. So happy to spend a a waiver claim on him certainly had of those wide receivers that we're talking about minus the eighty percenters and yeah I just I. P PR for sure non PR he's going to get eyeballs. They're going to be some unhappy campers with what they got out of some tight ends of the waiver wire this week off the out of the draft, and they might go to replace Scott or with them and I don't blame him what if Hodgkinson's available because that's another guy that my sixty seven percent rostered and you're thinking well, I, don't want to miss the breakout here the second. would be he would be right behind Goddard okay. If you're. Really. Close, there's two things that play with both those guys, and clearly it's going to determine what happens when somebody comes back for Parkinson. The best receiver was missing her. So, we'll see how Golsby's return impacts him and then for the eagles. They for whatever reason didn't play on Jackson A lot. You, know Doug Peterson trying to spend it yesterday that you know that was just the plan going in his neck count but alshon could return at some point as well, and then I think we gotta find out how they're going to operate. You know they still go with these two tight end sets is you're GONNA play head of irks you know is is the contract play you know? Do They not want to pay? because. Dow's got. It is so good and it's the passing of the torch a little bit. If in fact got her can just do Zakar does from a production standpoint that's probably a minor thing you know because the need to win but I think you're going to see an end hit on this Emily Johnson back was offensive line looks dramatically different. They're not going to be as beat up as they were work Carson Wentz is. Running for his life and getting eight sacks and they're obviously not going to face a defensive front like they faced against Washington, which is going to be a brown for a lot of teams based on how they got after went and took apart that offense of mine as well. So I think God, is going to be good. I don't know if he's going to be this good, but he was a top ten last year. So it's hard, overlook the way he performed now over Seventeen Games van going back Dr Gray Yeah and it's six or more targets for Goddard in eight straight games going back to last year he's great well, but he wasn't he wasn't actually that great. He was a little disappointed. He was very disappointing considering all the targets and when he got like eight to ten target say he was great and he got nine targets at Washington. I was yeah. We'll see Carson wentz continues to throw a ton that's like eight games in a row or something with forty or more pass attempts. But maybe Mile Sanders coming back would change that we shall see. Her, it's going to be popular and with good reason. So let's talk about Fab, your free agent budget here. How much for whom? I don't see myself spending a lot for anybody because there isn't a slam dunk and Becau because Snell hines and Brown are all going to be available I think put in somewhere close to the same amount for each of the three. You've got a good chance of getting one of them, which is what you think Like I'm thinking, you're getting shut out you definitely get shut out. Okay. That's fine with me because none of these three are i. sure starters the rest of the way well, it what you need, I mean obviously the connor owner O'Connor manager you know you're going to look spend probably a little bit more on snow you're gonNA look to spend a little bit more. If you're the MARLIN MAC fantasy manager, you know that lost somebody significant is going to go a little bit. More aggressive with their FAB because they WANNA, make sure they have a starter or flags or whatever. The case may be. If you're rosters depleted and and format size matters, you know fourteen leaks sixteen team leagues guys don't become available like this if they are on the free agent wire, but on the waiver wire, but I think you're looking at it as I'm with, you know the way that I wrote it was around twenty percent no I I just think there's no. The your roster really going to determine it I mean that's just the way to look at it. You know we're going to be in a lot of leagues where somebody spends thirty forty percent just because they. Don't know how to use their fab budget the right way because they're doing it for the first time or be they just got decimated by injuries and you know you wanNA source would your fantasy season before it goes out? I'll although I'll go against just a little bit because I'll push back on that. I think that. I compared Chris Towers had US fill out a week to survey last night Chris Towers. Authors are newsletter you should sign up for that CBS sports dot com slash newsletters. Goes. Right to your inbox and one of the questions about waiver wire obviously and I compared Malcolm, Brown to Jordan Howard. Last year and this assumption that can make as. Well. You say that but this assumption that camakers is just going to take the job but can makers. He missed he made a lot of men miss and he's probably better than his numbers, but his overall numbers were much worse than Malcolm. Browns they obviously trust Malcolm Brown. Daryl Henderson is an x factor here because I think you know maybe he gets more carries more work when he's further. But he's clearly third. Absolutely. Could but he could throw a wrench in the plans. But what I'm saying is we assumed Mile Sanders would take the job from Jordan Howard and he never did not until Howard got hurt so that opportunity you have to at least. look at that as a possibility for Malcolm Brown. And if he's goal-line guy with the tendency, they've shown run the ball near the goal line and if he's going to lead them in catches. If. He will but he did in week one. Fifty one percent that seems low to me and I. Think I was thinking thirty percent for these guys especially like if we just said that Tariq Cohen Bedtime Hines Rico and could have seventy catches how are you not spending thirty percent of your budget on? The reason you're not spending thirty percent of your budget is you don't know the next Guy GonNa come along in two weeks and you don't Wanna be without some free agent money to spend less. No, that's that's part of it. You have to balance your budget I mean. Any sort of shopping that you but we oh. Okay I'm sorry to you. We had really good players in week wind Terry maclaurin was out there and. This is your opportunity to get someone for a full season. and. This is the the decision you have to make. You know it's the I'm trying to think of a guy, we one last year that went off that we said it's been big on and was disappointing. Probably a couple of those will tell you. So I think you just have to you know gauge it, and that's why I was kind of saying everybody's rousers different. You know if you just lost. Mac and he was somebody that you're counting is a flex option or you just you know now down James Connor for maybe a couple of weeks or fill-in for a couple of weeks you don't have any Golladay who knows for how long cordless Sutton same thing you know you're gonNa make some different moves dowse or could be a starting tight end for the rest of the. season, as he was again finishing as a top ten guy last year. So every scenario is is different for every league in fourteen league. In Sixteen League, they're gonNA spend more because these guys don't become available as often. So it's just different. You know I don't think you should go blowing your free agent budget on a guy in Malcolm Brown who could be replaced by camakers or Bennys now may not have a starting job next week because James Connor is healthy. We know what Pittsburgh track record is when they go with one running back. So there's there's lots of things at play here. Yes hines may be the this guy all season long as to recall and James White type of player and John Taylor goes down he could be even better. So you know there there's a lot of things that play here. So it's not a bad idea to get these guys. It's not a bad idea if you have such. A entity for them to spend as much as you think you need to spend but two weeks from now Daryl Williams may be dropped and a lot of leagues and he started for the chiefs of quite under. So Larry Goes Down and you don't have enough rigid budget. Go get that type of guy in there's twenty eight other examples of that around the NFL that could happen. So I I think we've laid out the case for everybody Adam, where if you if you have just totally bought into to Brown or Snell or hinds and League. If you don't think fifteen twenty percent is enough then go for manager. Fed and then these guys will be yours for the rest of the season but hines particularly what happens a Philip rivers goes down and he's thirty eight years old I'm not playing that game rap I I don't know I'm not playing that game. quarterback. Okay. That's the thing. We don't have a guy at running back this week that we can say nothing stopping him. True. Okay. Is that guy like? And James Robinson from being the law guy how much fab. On James Robinson. He. If. If you were if you were to say right now, Lake if we get news by the Middle, day James Connor tore a ligament in his ankle and was out for six weeks. Oh Yeah. Then he smells sixty percent guy minimum? At minimum you know. So there's different things at play here. Yeah. If if the rams if Sean McVeigh said Noah Brown impressed me so much. This is our guy for the rest of the season. Then he becomes a thirty percent guy. Okay so you WANNA take a trip down memory lane. I'm looking at our waiver wire show from last year. Okay. All right. This should be fun. Go ahead. So the thing is a lot of the guys that we had as top priorities rostered like seventy, two, seventy, seven percent of leaks, Tj? Hopkinson. Had that huge game that was a waste of money Tyro Williams he was seventy seven percent roster but he gave me some good weeks before his injury Austin Hooper was seventy six percent rostered. Mark Andrews was seventy three percent rostered. So those were like the high end guys. Little bit deeper. Let's see. Josh Allen Fifty Eight Percent Matthew Stafford forty five percent. At running back, Giovanni Bernardo top priority because Joe Mixing got her in week one and didn't miss any games. Chris Thompson waste of money Ronald Jones, waste of money. Bad running backs. Carlos Hyde. I was a good one. Carlos is fifty eight percent at that point Malcolm Brown he most hurt I, don't know why was. Brown last year to re moster too early on that one. Alexander Madison Ito Smith Mike, Davis etc. Yeah. but it sounds like a bunch of crap in Ricky Moster at running back. No closer. Credit most it was crap because he didn't. Do Anything for right. John. Brown Jamison crowder Marquees. Brown. Decay metcalf. Terry maclaurin. Pretty. Good players there. We've barely talked about receivers to pick up and I am time getting Paris Campbell, well, not having every league but if I don't, I'm GonNa get various cable. Who Yeah? All right we'll get to our favorites. Let's go through just a few news and notes will actually a lot of notes. Michael Thomas is going to try to play through a high ankle sprain guys. What's your? What are your thoughts there? He plays stardom. We talked about this on yesterday show being shrager and towers the the by week replacements we. We're talking about who we trade him for. He's no worse. We thought wide receiver three. Maybe you get you get Davante Adams for if he could. You maybe get Julio about you guys. That's it though. tyreek maybe I think now's the time to try and see how the Michael Thomas Fantasy manager feels about him. Right. I. Always. Damaged goods once. Don't you give them to me and I'll give you stefan digs and Someone else in my Guillotine League The manager it's fantasy almost I won't I won't name names to embarrass anybody but the fantasy manager with Michael Thomas chopped. No would you rather have? Jonathan Taylor or Michael Thomas Recipe season. Tough Taylor to big is like Taylor's probably gonNA catch passes right back and three catches before he got hurt two or three it's it's the Philip rivers effect baby and. Michael Thomas is better than Jonathan Taylor. If we were. Redrafting today a helpful Thomas would go ahead of Taylor. Thumbs, but if we know that Thomas Banged up. And he didn't have a great game. Yeah. Well, Taylor. For that one, please give me he added have acute up Jamie I'm sorry What did you say it gives you a what. Heats. Up. that. One is so weird who makes this noise? So weird Johnson Taylor Yeah, nine carries twenty two yards. It shouldn't be overlooked, but he did have six catches for sixty seven yards. Okay. Philip. Lindsey Mild Turf Toe. Horrible schedule coming up for Melvin Gordon probably something we should talk about tomorrow. steelers boxer jets next three games. James Connor Ankle. It. Didn't talk about so mild mild interest in Royce, Freeman and Jalen Samuels deeply. The deep deep freeman almost punched into touched on there at the end Gordon Jordan came on sport. Pittsburgh Right Tackle Zach banner hurt his knee Blake Darwin toward the ACL, which sucks George Kato hurt his knee and he may not play this week at the jets. Brandon I you expected to play this week though Mile Sanders decent chance to play this week against the Rams Levy on bell is going to be out a few weeks with a hamstring injuries. Got The niners Devante. Parker. Hamstring. Injury do we know if he is going to play this week? We have an update on part of it sounds like he could miss some time They got the bills this week unfortunately, but then gets a little easier. Jacksonville a week three Preston. Williams's rostered in eighty percent of CBS leaks. Does Sean Jackson snap count will increase each week David? Joke who's on I r with a knee injury. So if you're thinking about dropping Austin Hooper, should we wait that they get Cincinnati and then Washington and Dallas and known a joke Oh. Yes, you it unless he's. If he's clearly the worst player on your bench and your tight end then you can make the move. But you don't have. You don't have to spike cut 'em. K.. Aj boy a Denver cornerback. He got hurt in the second quarter and falling apart. Yeah. They sure are every year. It's socks I should have won the game the. Guests they should have. Can you say that when the other team is four kicks? Was it three four kicks extra point three field goals I say that when they were down arguably their best offensive player, they were down their best defensive player and they add you know injuries all throughout the game. yes, and Ryan Fitzpatrick is going to start at Buffalo Against Buffalo. But when you have to say that right, it's patches going to start. That means you've got. A QUESTION FOR EVERY MIAMI game whenever they lose so if he plays badly question. He doesn't play that. Yeah waiting for to it, and the minute that the chargers was going to be question there. Yeah Talk about a team should have won a game by the way. Did you buy that calf cramp for the bengals kicker? You think he. Makes the kick the kid the cramped doesn't matter. Yeah. I I didn't buy those to pass interference, call the which ones Gal crabby Gal born. Yeah I thought it was. An acting job. I, think Ramsey played that well, what did you guys know right? Yeah. Okay, top three at each position. Let's get some names going here. Then we'll recaps Sunday Monday, night football, do the drop a meter, and then give you a bunch of names later in the show. If you WANNA give more than three names, go for it but who were the quarterbacks were looking at? What the seller list Mitchell trubisky. Garner Menchu and Ryan Tannehill. No borough. Taking on the browns this week if you're streaming. He. What's that that? Eighty three percent roster oh, that's why there's no borough. Trubisky MINHSIU and Tannehill you said. trubisky Menchu Tannehill. I. Mean Just what you thought when the season started that you'd be looking at these three guys in streaming options. Thankfully, I think you have to use these three because there's no major injuries and not a lot of awful matchups but I would start three over Carson wentz Matthew Stafford if they're top is offense of line running back for whence and. Golladay not there for staffer. Tannahill through more yesterday than he did all of last year in any game and he's single-game. trubisky's got the giants who stink. So but you say Minhsiu in like this Oh Gardner Mitch Way but if he were here, he'd be like. And he'd be like what's up with that because well. Good? Okay. But it's not like a long term play here. He said this and I firmly agree it's like pitting Keith two kids against each other because we know how much extra bisky as well. So I asked him yesterday on the show trubisky or Menchu and he said trubisky for week to mention for the season which I'm in total agreement with. Yeah, men's shoe Tannehill against the Jaguars. Last year went for thirty six fantasy points. MINHSIU has the titans this week, and then the dolphins, the bengals and the Texans and the lions. By Yeah. Okay running backs we've covered. We've see So then he snell I am Heinz Malcolm Brown Joshua Kelly. Who are more name's Dave that you'd be looking at it running back I'd like a jerk McKinnon NPR leaks. He'd be a potential fallback guy for high. It's obviously not as sexy as hines but it was good to see him play and it was good to see him score. And this is going to be Grossman. Adrian Peterson. Was the most productive yardage and Kerry guy for Detroit. and carry on Johnson just stinks sorry. He's not good. I, think Adrian Peterson's going to continue to be the one A in swift will probably end up being the one be. It's a good match. You more excited. I bet everybody more excited about swift had caught that touchdown to win the game for the lions but he still barely had touches in the game. Is the type of thing you want to other people in your fantasy league to do chase agent Peterson. Chase Peyton Barber. Chase Frank War they're all gonna be terrible and if you're looking for an under the radar guy to pick up I'm GONNA say it again he's a little bit higher owned a roster than you would like. But still pick up their Williams best. If he gets dropped because you saw what they did with Edwards layer and you'd rather have the starting running back for the chiefs in week five should something happened to resume their than the starting running back for the lions, the jets, or in this case, the Washington football team for now based on what those guys are GonNa get touched. Adrian Peterson on my team don't want frank and my team I. Don't want paid Barbara on my team i. don't care what they're gonNA. Do they're not going to help you win a week? What about miles gaskin? Miles Gaskin is certainly more interesting than those guys but be shocked if they go into week two and not give Jordan Howard and map rita more work, 'cause gaskin outplayed those guys not just the production but the playing time was ridiculous in terms of how they use those other guys in the fact that they didn't throw the ball to read it all they didn't about during our that's not a big surprise. I heard this on were were were we live in south? Florida. So a radio show I go on all assignments. Hopping and crowder and they said Jordan Howard had the Kaelin Balazs line of eight carries for seven yards, and they said, you hope that you're running back gives you a barrage of production. We get a Balazs of production actually Jamie there's a new name for it it's actually the Barclay production. Don't go there. Fifteen carries for six yards. Yeah. He's not playing the steelers every week he actually. Game just like that against the jets last year. It. WHO The steelers? No Debt Oh the they do you love Josh Allen because it run defense so bad. You Love Josh, because what last week? Fence for the jets is good and the defense. Yeah Yeah. Yeah I mean it's good pretty much every year I also thought I said over and over the giants round, even really good and I think it shouldn't. It was great for a while I think just kinda got worn down and. wide receivers. All right. Yeah. So who we looking at it wide receiver big Big Fun Names I. Think I think it's pretty fun names out there on the waiver wire what are yet? They're fun names I just don't know how much her you'd be into start them. I've got Anthony Miller I but he's rostered and sixty one percent of the league. So lot of people aren't gonNA be able to get him I like what I saw from Mike Williams and I'm a little worried about game banged up but a lot of downfield throws to him. He was an air yards king last year the ad over thousand yard. Spare. Last year and it seemed like he was the only target that tyrod good hit on those sideline throws with with some consistency not a lot of grey consistency. He would be second for me Robbie Anderson, would be third Paris Campbell NPR would be fourth, and then there's other names after that. It's it's Kinda deep at receiver and I don't think you're gonNA have to spend a lot of Fab to get any of these guys. Miller on a little nervous about like love the match up. I, don't know you have to tell me if you always lines up on one side of the field or not seem like he might be left side. No. The right side that's where he called me. A little bit more often than the right as I recall. All right. Well, because it seemed like the giants quarterback slapped the quarterbacks left. Right now he was he caught a touchdown on the quarterbacks right side in that Enzo. Doesn't throw. Seemed like James Bradberry, that appears to be his side of the field. So, and that's what they have this week, the giants but the thing with Miller. As he got six targets, he ends up with that touchdown catch it was a great catch. But if he doesn't catch that ball and you can't on him to get that if he doesn't catch that Baugh, he has a pretty bad game and trubisky was really horrible for for the first half. So most recorders yeah. I totally get it Ruutel and I started Anthony Miller and I you know Jamie's been talking about mills the end of last season so I get it But I. But why? Jamie your list I'm curious why Campbell was was fourth for you Dave 'cause like. I don't know. He led the team in targets just make sense that he'd be a target that feels like. Yeah. A tie for the lead the team in receiving. He was tied in targets I don't know. What your list for me it's it's it's three guys above the wrath. It's almost like the running back position Millersville I just. because. Again, I've been talking about him all off season. Back off after he had a productive game, we won all of this guy should not would be second. The fact that he did this with the you know the Jaguars aren't GonNa Twenty Times every week in the fact that they gave him the to carries that he scored that touchdown I think he's just continue to get much much better. So I love what I saw from him in that game and I think again, you're going to see them thrown all over the place and chasing points, and they're going to try to put the ball his hands as much as possible and then Campbell. Would be third. You just look at what he was able to do in this in this game the concern is going to be health with him because he battled a ton of injuries last year but you know you see the top two guys in this passing game from the receiver standpoint t y Hilton in Paris Campbell. And I I think rivers is just get the ball out quick camel's going to be around wind scrimmage. You'RE GONNA, make people miss. This was a great first game for him for those two guys together. So those three for are above the rest by far. Okay Fair enough. So it's the same three except Dave put Robbie Anderson in there as his number and Mike Williams I didn't know. Sorry. I'm sorry my bad. Yeah. Okay a little bit on this. That's okay. It's just depends on how you feel about these guys and the tight ends. Got Easy Logan Thomas would be second for me. And then the third I would be Chris Herndon I. I know you didn't have a big game but the fact that he had six catches that he was second on the team and targets, they moved them all over the place. They have nothing else in his passing game they're going to be throwing all game because of how bad this run is going to be. So it's going to. Be An awful awful matchup again in week two against Buffalo. But you just have to look long term with him and eventually he's going to end up putting up some really really nice numbers. So buy into what his role was and how much they used him and how much they're going to continue to use him because Perryman stinks Mim Stinks Chris. Hogan definitely stinks and it's really right now. It's crowded and hurt, and as the only two guys, you trust the jets. If you want trust any of the jets I- Russell with Herndon and Thomas as far as who second on my tight end list because I agree. I. Think that they're just they're down to nubs now on offense and Herman's target share should should be good I don't like that he really didn't get a lot of. His yards until the end of the game though like why couldn't you have been a little bit more involved before then it's a little frustrating to me but I do think he's got some I think he's got more upside overall the logo times settling on it right now I'm taking over Thomas that I would agree with you if you're looking long-term if you're looking to Thomas is better than. Thomas. Gets the cardinals herning gets the forty niners. DSP and by the way, Hopkinson would be number one and number two if he were available. To, me I would say for me just based on there's more upside long-term for Hopkinson there is forgotten. Best to get this week. You got the cardinals they should do well at home against Washington Titans Against Jacksonville you know they suffocated the broncos. After the first quarter. Packers get Detroit especially validated there. So those pass rushers kinder's back in their first home game against the lines. Where's your love for the Cleveland Browns? Against the bengals. I think burroughs pretty good and I think that Brown's defense is not good outside of their mouths Garrett really. Okay. We'll see what their defensive backs look like because they were missing. Two or they. Two guys right. I think one got hurt so I think if by the end of the day they were missing three. Mo- C.. Yeah. Their linebackers or major liability though right now. Okay. and. He kickers. Yes. There are three kickers you could be looking at Chris Boswell gets the broncos at home. Crosby gets the lines at home and suck up gets the panthers at home. We're GONNA take a break on fantasy football today when we come back quick recap on the night football who to drop and more players to add like Philip rivers going to throw a lot maybe against the Vikings I'm Robert Be.

Pittsburgh twenty-six. Dave major takeaways from his game. Major takeaways at James Connor. We talked about I'm not going to get into it again. So let's go to the next guy. steelers, game students who touchdowns it's rothlisberger rothlisberger was rusty early on, and then he really started humming toward the end of the first half and just the synergy with Juju. It's like they played together for Sixteen Games. Last year was incredible and lot of target share for Juju for deontay Johnson and a little bit more for James Washington not so much for Ibran Clayton will. have. A great catch on the sideline and he'll be a problem eventually man he's just huge but Ben Rothlisberger started to kick it into high gear. He's got great weapons around him. Juju had a monster game hard not to be impressed with what you got from. Rothlisburger. Interesting game for Deontay. Johnson some some bad plays in their fumble but also targets. So that's encouraging and Jamie concerns about saquon Barkley. No. No I mean the fact that they use them as much in the past game. Remember that was a concern because of how much Daniel Jones ran last year they had split out when they were trying to come back in the in. The second half. So they you know we're using him a variety of ways. So yet none this is a this is as bad match. He's going to deal with all season long and it's going GonNa be a problem for a lot of teams in terms of their running back. So Good Luck Melvin. Gordon this week and would you drop Evan Ingram for Dallas guttered TJ Hodkinson. No. Tough tough tough match-up Ingram abound back I thought he would struggle against the steelers. Had A bad drop. Should have had ten touchdowns well, so we'll see how how improves this week but you know this this was just you know, hey, congratulations, giants, you're facing the best defense in football even though your home in week one, there was going to be a bad night all around by the way Darris Slayton now has ten touchdowns and fifteen career games. Five of the ten are from thirty plus yards out. Trivia. Who holds the NFL record for all time touchdowns thirty plus yards. Receiving saving. Randy Moss. He's close Jamie gotTA. Guests question. Career amount of touchdowns caught of thirty plus yards who has the most. Is. It Victor? Yes, Victor Koets non mazing. No, it's Jerry Rice. Okay. Now crews had a lot of, but that's okay. You being funny they big Tennessee Sixteen Denver fourteen. Jamie major takeaway from this game. Corey Davis good. Give him credit meaning he stepped up and played well with Aj browns struggling I wonder whatever mystery that do Brown was dealing with coming into the end of camp in the beginning part of this week if that carried over because he added, you know backdrop in the fourth quarter in the game winning touchdown. But Derrick Henry did not look good and you know we'll find out Taylor. Lewan left the game with a knee injury. We'll see what the extent of that is but I game without Jack, Conklin? No. So If this offensive line is going to be a problem for Henry. There were just no holes open for him. You know a couple of times we're. Outside look good and I did like the fact that I think he had two catches. I don't know how many times three three targets patches that tied his most in a game from last. That's certainly encouraging that they tried to get him involved in that capacity but if he's GonNa, get thirty carries a game he's going to break down I mean, you just can't. Work in like this over and over and over again. Yeah. Not Good. if you were drafting in today who goes I know offense or Darius Laden. With Wood knowing what we know from week one I'll say Slayton but fant was impressive and so he's so talented. Incredible the one thing about Layton and this is by far a minor knock but it's once he did it without one of the three receivers there. It's just amazing how To happen and I mean it's going to continue. He's GonNa I'm done I'm done with that being a knock totally totally agree but this, but but it's it's just funny that going active again, he has another big game I just hope that that's the start of. He could be their best guy because he should be their best guy. He's he has the highest feeling of becker. Okay let's do the drop. Oh, meter you on hold on hold on. Fan was exciting, but we should also make note that Chanu Smith had a good game. Yeah. He should have. He should've had even a little bit better game but. Hopefully, you're happy with what you got out of them and we he finish his top ten tight end. Who would rather have recipes inventor John? That, based on this he he and this is where this and Benny smell or just too many examples from the weekend where I wish we had preseason football because if we had seen fat look like this on the field he was playing. So freely you could tell that he wasn't thinking as much. You could tell that he was a second year tight end breaking out and now getting this type of work without Sutton is amazing. I. Hope it continues when Sutton comes back and looked great. Yeah, and Hammer to. I wish judy had caught a few more of his past at a couple of drops that were ugly. Still look good though I made such a mistake league We should maybe talk about this tomorrow because it's a bit of a strategy thing drop no offense before the season started for Duke Johnson because I had Mark Andrews and you know how much I love no fan. But I'm sitting there like I can't roster too tight ends with mark. Andrews. Let's get some running back up and that's just an interesting decision that you have to make. Running backs, you have to roster inferior players because you know you need depth and what if there's an injury in this guy could catch four passes that kind of crap. I'm so mad at myself because I totally love Noah fan but with Hopkinson with fat, you're looking at it maybe these are your to break outside ends. It happens every year now. Both of them were missing their best receiver, coralline sudden and and Kenny. Golladay. So we'll see if it carries over into week two I had I had a lucky roster move last night. I dropped gold for Benny Style. Well. You know. It's funny. I was looking at because my receivers that are bad and The first, the guy went to look for was James Watch take Clayton poll and There, what happens if Dan Scott all right let me just make the make the move. God that's just dumb luck. Hey fantasy roster these backup running backs this why roster. Johnson is David Johnson gets hurt all the time. You know sometimes you get the break sometimes do Johnson gets hurt. I drop Oh beaner. So I've got a bunch of names, but maybe we should talk about like okay. Just in Jefferson is an easy dropped fifty nine percent roster hunter. RENFRO is like sixty percents or something drop him. There's an easy 'cause what about like all of the rookie receivers Henry Rugs is ninety three percent rostered other Levinsky on your atlas i. get that but rugs. Judy and Judy. For Not for not for name Hines or Malcolm Brown I mean I guess if you're GONNA ten team league and those are the end of your bench guys rugs on his way to a monster game before he got hurt yeah. That's something to keep an eye on if he's hurt then it's easy to drop but. I think you look at what they were trying to do with him and what his could be like. That's a guy that has star potential based on where he was drafted. If he's a touchdown new, he got tackled at the one. Score. The touchdown then is that line looks a lot better. So don't drop in Europe's. Okay I wanted to see what what snap count he played sixty seven percent of the snap. So definitely, the injury. Came back after getting hurt which is a good sign. But I'm just saying. that. You need a procedural move I. Get it. But I don't know when these rookie wide receivers are going to become must start guys you know. So that's why I was asking because if you think about like this time last year, what we know now about the decay metcalf. was more valuable than. What we expect name Hines to be. This comparison makes sense. No hines is more valuable, but there's still unknown of what they're gonNA do with each player in their respective spots. You kind of idea of what hines going to be after what you saw in week one but I, mean rugs could be scratched the surface I. I tried to make this point yesterday I'll make it again here. Dave said, no preseason these rookies this was their first taste of NFL action first taste of speed at this level first taste of playing on the stage and so for guys like Edward Layer and Jonathan Taylor once he was pressed into action and some of Joe Bureau in in like imagine what was going through Joe had he's never taken an NFL snap before and he's down a leads them on a game winning drive. He should've had a touchdown AJ green and then goes misses the Gig like like that could have been the dream scenario and he was doing it all with never stepping on an NFL field before in any capacity so. These guys are only going to get better. It's kind of circle back to the Malcolm Brown camakers. Thing if makers getting fourteen carries in his first start without ever touching to field an NFL game, they're only going to continue to work. Yeah But. Okay. So which rookie long other words don't cut them, you got to be patient I understand but but we have an exciting waiver wire week I. Think a lot of people were going to be excited about getting some of these running backs compare rugs to a veteran that we could be like I have Chris Kirk as a potential cut guy, right? Yeah. That was my name. He was miserable. If you're telling me, I have to make the decision between Henry Rugs and Christian Kirk I'm cutting Christian course but who wish rookie wide receivers? Would you be willing to cut Reagan Euch I mean like well okay. I excited good opportunity right now but what about regular regular you can cut? Yes. Okay. What a Justin Jefferson said fifty nine percent Mr get rid of him. Okay. What about Jordan Howard in that Brita? If. You have to cut them. You've got them. Read. THEM MORE SO I tell a little more Sylvia would you yes I don't care these scored. He's a slug behind about offensive line. Would you cut Howard for? I'm just bring up the conversation. I think I'd cut create a first of its Hafer non which cut them for Benny Smell. And heartbeat Oh. Yeah. What about Daryl Henderson forty five percent by Leonard Fournette. No I'd hold onto four that Joe Borough eighty-three percent now. Okay. Again if your second quarterback, you know it's it's it's the same thing you brought up about cutting fant reference scenario depends on what you have on your team but. I'm cutting borough to get good running back depth and a potential starter for week to. Carry Johnson simple by carry out. Okay. All right. So who else Who else were you thinking about dropping this week Jamie I give some big names on your on Your quarterback lists Carson Wednesday Matthew Stafford. Yeah. Again, it's you know as I explained in the store, you don't have to do it, but you know you're looking at scenarios where this offense is going to be this bad he's facing Aaron Donald this week good luck with that. He's GonNa get murdered if he doesn't have Johnson back to at least give them some help after what that Washington defensive line didn't what the rams defense did a Dak Prescott behind bad offensive line is well without Lyle Collins. So I think it's going to. Be a rough day for Wentz and I'd rather take my chances with trubisky this week if you're just going from week to week based on the quarterback position and the same thing Stafford, who was able to get his way to eighteen fantasy points and should add a second score If the Andrea Swift made catch, but it's not going to be easy for him I think going into Green Bay and playing that defense, which that has a good pass rush and making stuff on him. So those are those are two guys you could potentially move on from the running back position you mentioned two of them already and carry on and. Jordan Howard I consider cutting calm. You know I don't want to necessarily rush to do that because of maybe he wasn't playing as much. That was what was speculated. I, read that on the show Castro still playing the Sacramento Bee said though writer for the Sacramento Bee said it was likely because of that. But only six six snacks he was. Snapped by Dirk. McKinnon Ozzy. Regime Moster but you see the writing on the wall hasn't been good for several weeks going back the last season even though they're going to give him opportunities he's more of handcuff at this point and he's not necessarily a must hold. In terms of the receivers, this is some. Huge guys but you know big enough that you're you know potentially going to move on from if you have to. Kirk. At eighty-three percent Deebo Samuel just because he's offered three weeks. So we don't have an I. R. Spot you could probably cut him and then Michael Hartmann is sixty, four percent. You know it's pretty clear. He's going to need an injury to be successful. Lear. Be Clear Coleman. Had One great game. In. The playoffs but it's one of his last eight that was even remotely close to saying. Good. So. I, don't WanNa. Say these been bad for every ad the one great game but again, it's we've seen what we've seen in the coaches have seen what they've seen and it would be hard to have Coleman. Or McCain enough field. All right. So I think we're GONNA go a little long today because this is just a busy waiver wire show. So there are mornings we need to get to. So let's go through the each position and we could probably go through quarterback fairly quickly but quarterbacks Mitchell trubisky. He's got the giants Gardner Men's shoes got the the titans we like mint you much more long term than trubisky Rutan Hill. Jacksonville those were the top three for Jamie Dave Mensur trubisky this week who would you go with Tannehill take take you Tannehill trubisky okay and then Kirk cousins against the Colts Garoppolo at the jets Teddy Bridgewater at Tampa Bay author Philip Rivers naming their he did throw forty six passes in the Vikings. Horrible I think this is actually a good matchup for reverse because the pass rush for Minnesota they did a decent job of getting pressure on Rogers but they couldn't connect with it and they're secondary's just so bad right now. I I think rivers can end up having a decent week. I would still rather have meant you and Tannahill. But quarterback leagues. If rivers is available via trade, you should be able to get them cheap. And are, we starting like. MINHSIU or Trubisky or Tannehill over Carson Wentz this week. I. Would. I think I would too but I I wanna see what the offensive line ends up looking like for Philly before I? Lock in something like that for now. Yes. How about over Tom Brady? No No. Had to ask how about over drew brees. Las Vegas Monday night. Okay. Running backs We have I think covered this pretty sufficiently. What do you do if you have Boston Scott? Hold on and hope Sanders. Is Add another week in that Scott's healthy in. The passing game there's A. There's different reports on what exactly happened has got. He left the game then came back but he didn't play once he came back. So I, don't know if he's hurt. we'll find out as the week unfolds, but there's also report the sanders to return. So I mean if you have to drop Boston Scott for these guys, Snow Hines Brown Kelly. I wouldn't which can. Okay. McKinnon Dave's Oct- About Daryl Williams Adrian Peterson Frank. Gore Miles Gaskin Pain Barber Carlos Hyde Corey Clement Rex burkhead. Their names get you through a week. There stop-gap options. I actually had more carries and Chris Carson. That's trouble. It's true. One one person needed receiving touchdown staff a big game. I don't know what to make of that person entered the week with three career receiving touchdowns, and then he caught to in the first half of against. You make it that the Falcons are going to struggle against passenger to Carey's came on the heels of P. Carol. Saying that they're going to ride the hot hand and neither of them was hot carrying the ball. I looked to sell high Chris Carson if you can. Josh Adams Jalen Samuels these are deeply guys wide receivers. If these players are available try Adam Jamison crowder sterling Shepard Preston, Williams although you're probably not certain Williams this week at Buffalo Against Buffalo you know. John Brown that one I don't know about guys like how confident are you in John Brown's seventy nine percent roster did have ten targets dolphins this week. I. Love John Brown absolutely loved him. Yeah. The fact that he's now getting the second best cornerback and and what he's GonNa that's be Josh Allen looked really good. He missed a couple throws I I was. I don't know if I was going out on huge limbs and there's going to be just sounds I heard three hundred game but he had never had a game over two hundred seventy yards and not only was great at the start of the week but he hit the ball prediction to and so if they're gonNA, let him throw as much as they. Seem to be granted face to face the jets though. Face a good run defense. Horrible pass defense probably, but he's got he's week but they. He. He is if you were looking for. A very, very, very deep dark horse and MVP candid Josh Allen 'cause they could win the AFC east and they could have the patriots path to get into the playoffs with the first round by. I. Don't think it's going to happen, but it's their. Bates so bad but. He missed. Those fumbles I be like, no. There's there's a lot to like about this team and there's Like, about his his setup there at the division. I'm I'm I'm loving the bills. And Kudos to Ben grads because of this is the fundings every week he's going to be he's going to shatter his eighty but this okay this is more of a Wednesday show thing like well, let's talk about it, but it is now time to sell high on every Buffalo Bill passed three bills on Alan digs and Brown. We'll talk about tomorrow's talking about no one's GonNa give you anything for John Brown. Sure. But you might for digs and definitely maybe for Alan Church like the fantasy managers that have reason Brady, they might be interested not say can't be great but you might be able to turn him into like a slightly Man I'm sure that was fact that he ran. That's that's the cherry on top because if he's GonNa throw like this with this amount of volume and still run the design runs were there he's going to be five quarterback this keeps up. Was this is best game of the year it might be, but he gets jets again. Okay. Yeah. He does like six weeks. Darius Slayton Sammy Watkins. And now they walk in Psalm again like how how confident are you feeling in? Was that his best game of the year eighty, two yards and a touchdown he likes week. One does he still plays Patrick Mahomes Andy, Reid so I have that on my team if I can if this is what defenses are going to do each week to the chiefs, then he's going to collect a lot of targets underneath. So all of these players crowder, Shepherd Preston Williams John Brown Darius Slayton Sammy Watkins they all better than say Anthony Miller Robbie Anderson La viscous. Paris CETERA. Nut Shepherd. Okay. Maybe, not walking see there. So the waiver wire adds a wide receiver. The ones we've talked about our Miller tional Campbell Robbie Anderson and Mike. Williams. There's also Russell Gage. The cowboys, that's his opponent this week they were bad against lot receivers last year and they just gave up one hundred, five yards, Robert Woods. So there's gauge he's Rosser to two percent of leagues. There's two packers, wide receivers. mvs, and Allen Lazard. I don't actually know art at sixty, two percent. Mikio Harry Scotty Miller probably for deeper leaks but let's talk about gauge. LAZARD. An mvs and Jamie Hi feel about them. I mean, you know we were excited about Lazar giving his role as the number two receiver for the packers and you know this is validation of that. The fact that the only had six targets is a little bit of concer-. I'm sorry. Four targets, right. LAZARD Four targets, your targets, but again, my and around I think you're gonNA see Aaron Rodgers Lean on. Monday atoms. The way that Rogers looked. Is the best thing about lazard NBS looked awesome and you know hopefully that's a sign of things to come that leflore. Let's do this. It's only the third time under the floor that he's had forty more bass attempts One of those was at Minnesota, last year when they were chasing points but I think this is a this is a positive science. You want pieces of zones if you can get it in Lazard, clearly is rostered into many leagues but NBS. This was a guy that they were excited about last year. He didn't. You know deliver they excited about him again this year and you know he had a bad drop should have another touchdown could have had over one hundred yards about one hundred, thirty looking at where the throw was so. you're buying Aaron Rodgers at this point, and it's not a bad idea to take a fire on mvs's not a must add by any stretch but he certainly somebody that you can put on the bench if you're excited about the way rogers, but he's he's in the same mould as to Sean Jackson Henry Rugs and other Robbie Anderson. Well, I, think probably might be better I. Know that the robby of the past would be the same guy in I. Probably be more excited about envious with the packers than Robbie Anderson with the jets. But I just think that the offense said in gives them not to get more targets and we saw that last week the NBA zone touchdown. I agree. But I think the target share is interesting and that's why I'm interested in. Robbie. Anderson and this is the panthers team. That's GonNa Chase points every single week and don't forget that the packers at their core are a like a run heavy type of team. They just they didn't end up being that way and. Maybe. They don't end up being that way at all and we're just way off on that but mvs's he's interested in but I wouldn't count on him to do what he did every single week while the packers get the lion's this week in the Lions we'll see if Okuda place, but they were without him and they lost to defensive backs injury during the game true font and their slot corner. Coleman thank you. So last question my receivers would rather have a packers wide receiver or Corey Davis. Packers. Aj Brown was miserable game last night right but. I don't think that's GonNa be this. Could this be it Dave? What's your answer? Davis what's your answer? I will I will say Corey Davis over lazard and envious. Okay and if I'm wrong hopefully, one of those two will be on the waiver wire for to collect when Gordon starts to Suckley he did for the first. Four years of his career. Three years four hundred years it seems like he's been eight years I will finish with tight ends here no offense is eighty four percent roster but you know get them again Hopkinson and Goddard are the price is what about Kosinski? How does he measure up with Hawk considered Goddard? Sticky had a miserable game in a miserable matchup, but he's still ran a tunnel routes and now you have Parker missing time. So he's in the same boat. As herndon you don't have to play him this week in another tough match against Buffalo, but I'd like to have him on my roster. I. Still think there's a ton of upside for. Moving for. Okay. So then you'll get Hopkinson, you'll get Godart. Logan's Hamas for this week. Chris Herndon not necessarily for this week Mike ezekie, not necessarily for this week. Do you have any interest in Jimmy Graham against the giants Greg Olsen against the Patriots OJ Howard Against Carolina Jordan? EAKINS? Against Baltimore Grandma's. Interesting raving about him this off season in Chicago and the fact that he should have had two touchdowns that he was right there in terms of targets with he was second on team in targets beyond Robinson ahead of Anthony Miller. So they're gonNA use him you know and as long as is A. Broken bones can hold up and stay on the field. In deeper leagues, it's not bad to take a flyer on him because the giants defense is bad. They did a good job on Lebron. But we'll see how how how does I don't have to start Jimmy Graham. But if I'm stuck, you know if I'm GONNA, Fourteen Team League and I just lost Blake Darwin. That's not a bad pivot play over I, take them Olson for example, who could start lose targets to will this leave in the Olsen scored? Off. So good start Jimmy Graham three point six yards per target. Yeah. He's you need a touchdown out of him. Yeah. You might giants every week I the giants Scher. Do they keep streamer this week? But like? For the most part that now. All right and. That's cool. What about Jack Doyle Against Minnesota drop them? It's a tough match-up for them. Rivers was lamenting after the game that he should have hit him for a touchdown. He was kind of open on a play where rivers through elsewhere and missed his guy. So maybe he tries and makes a mess for that this week but it's a much harder matchup this week than it was last week and I'll say mega deep leagues or maybe tight end Premium Leagues Dalton Schultz figures to replace jar when he got four. I don't know if he's going to end up getting the same type of volume. That, going to do that but I just say you know maybe Iverson, is fifty percent of it. I wouldn't be surprised if. They bring in some guys. You know maybe Delaney Walker, for example. Who else is on the street, but they could be looking at tiny. DST's titans packers, cardinals, kicker. Boswell. Crosby suck. That's it for this marathon waiver wire show. Hope it was helpful. Switch eight PM tonight will see they're for Dave Jamie.

I'm so glad you're able to come on impulsive. You guys might recognize this guy. Kevin I go go back to the beginning of this year. So I'm glad we were able to close it out full circle. More importantly, I'm glad you brought us Christmas. Weather's nice. Nice. That's what's happening right now. We're all one big family, quite possibly the healthiest social media family in the game. It also fuck you Spencer. Over there, man. You couldn't get up and join us if it's okay, I've never talked to talk. Both my four. This is great while what's yours. Hello. It's this is saying. That same still frustrates. Hey, let's let's let's dive in. Let's talk about stuff. So so you guys know Kevin was the guy who I featured in my suicide be here. Tomorrow video at the beginning of the year to this day is the number one most viewed suicide PSA on the internet and quite arguably might be the most effective so high five for that. Kevin as again, you guys may or may not know has an incredible story. You can read about it. KM Heinz foundation dot org. I'm sure they can find anywhere. Yeah. I can't. But here's what this gets interesting. Kevin, and I have actually grown into real friends. Wow. We have really. And in the game family, bro. What's what's what's your model? That you say we are the healthiest thirty is that when you, but you could say it again say I'm gonna say it with a raspy voice. Okay. Tie. We are the healthiest social media family in the game who makes me want to drink my greens. And. That doesn't make every made my toast. Toast. What margaret? Margaret Margaret's Kevin's wife. Why does she hate that will hurt her her folks, we work with the Lauren Brennan, and she's from Australia, and she's like stop saying it? We know what you are. But. Hey, true favor. Damn chest. And I talked to the low gang. It was like, yeah, we're the strongest social media fan on sky. Now, you you have to. So that focuses when you say healthiest talking about physical. I'm not sick or 'cause I know you're focuses on mental health and wellness some expanding for seventeen eighteen years. I've traveled the world three hundred twenty days a year telling my story about recovery from severe mental illness bipolar disorder type one with psychotic features both my biological. Parents is I'm adopted have it right now. I'm focused on all around us full on this whole wellness, non inflammatory foods most days most meals exercising. Multiple times a day for my better brain health, twenty three minutes of rigorous exercise, twelve hours a better Brownell. So I'm working tirelessly in all aspects of my health, physical, mental spiritual motion. Well being to stay alive. I live with chronic thoughts. A suicide they'd played me if I don't hustle hard and worked tirelessly for my brain health. I will not be here. You are the first guest to talk that fast. That was amazing. And you are also the first guest to not wear the headphones at all where mode had he's wondering zone, which are not connected to the transmitting. Absolutely nothing. Kevin. That's amazing. So so beyond the Kevin having a message is actually impacting the world in a big way. You're a dope. As dude he brought us. This weather's of soldiers. I've never had a Christmas sweater in my life. And now we Rockin unicorns and drug Santa Claus and ripped Oldman and also sponsors. I guess was shark Santa short. But no, thank you. Kevin. How's that been going broke? Because you you told me on the phone you travel three hundred twenty days a year most years yet a lot of travel. So how do you focus on your mental health and wellness? So when you do crazy shit like wake up at four thirty every morning hit the gym hit the weights or hit the ground running or working, whatever I do. I do something physical every morning at four thirty in the morning for thirteen to twenty three minutes every single day identity that three or four times a day because I do a lot of physical pain as well. The people don't most people don't know about it allowed physical pain. And that goes and comes. So I have to work out us don't feel good. So I do that every day. I eat at the same time roughly every day to no matter the time zone with some. Variables given on travel. I sleep really well most nights probably five to seven nights a week. I'm sleeping like a rock. Not a baby. Some some lady said don't say that don't say, you're sleeping like a baby babies. Don't sleep. They don't true. I learned that lesson your regiment regimented, everything is regimented the only way to defeat mental illness is by having a strict and clear present regiment or routine routine. Yeah. It was in time magazine two thousand four when I was in my third psych ward, stay that. I read this article that said if you follow the routine that assigns base Evanston formed to stay mentally stable. You will be more mentally stable most days than if you don't I've I've heard the same thing about really boundaries setting boundaries herself and setting like a regimented daily. Schedule is one of the best ways to fix your mental health to allow for spontaneity on the weekends which everybody to Logan Paul's house and going out impulsive one more time on the left. Sounds kind of like Santa Claus, generally truly incredible. So you you've really focused on your, fitness, bro. Like you can't see right now. Guys, you'll Kevin's walking three. We let's see make sure to take those headphones off. Noli shlo-. We are the healthy. So. No, I really believe that I bro. Yanni more tickets to that gun show right here for really slowly feel it feel solid Iraq there. Feels like a check and Kevin I met you you look like this. Well, how about when I was making this film suicide the ripple effect? This is for you log and look how big I was sixty five pounds. Heavier. Do you've made some shreds and do your lean bro, you're leaning, meet and brilliant. Nice. Actually, I should saw. Thank you. Can I ask you something asked me anything? I have beef with this. Why are you wake up at four thirty Kevin? Because I have to man like my alarm clock goes off by itself. We got I need them. But has because because doesn't Mark Wahlberg wake up at like one thirty AM and go to sleep at like six PM that he does a workout that sounds a personal seven and two Amerson. No, nobody s while you know, you see the guys on Instagram to like for thirty eight that you up protein shake, I had eggs. Yeah. Yeah. Like, and I'm just like, oh, what if I wake up at like reasonable time. Eight thirty still hit the gym don't go to sleep as early as you. Does what time you going to sleep in bed by ten or eleven at night most nights because I definitely brain. Sure. What you were saying. It's like you gotta have a lot. I was gonna say. Yeah. I get a lot of late night tags. No you have been lately because I sleep it's been up to buy things. That's the physical pain talking. Okay. So I'll wake up in excruciating. Physical pain sweating from head to toe. Can you get out of bed and go take a cold shower? And like what happened was my my meds poisoned. My system they poison my liver, and my kidneys. And I was on the tipping point of Stevens Johnson syndrome, which if you get Stevens Johnson's you have one percent chance of survival. I was already one percent to survive the Golden Gate Bridge. I wasn't gonna be one percent again with gets even Johnson's don't look it up on Google. You will never close your eyes again because you won't be able to sleep is this. Is this your from the measure inside come out to you? Now, I've taken medication for twenty years to mitigate my mental health. I still take it today. Just a lot less. It poisoned my organs causing secondary burns across my entire body. Plenty blisters throughout head to toe. I REM I remember that. Yeah. I don't think your either of you were you were right. You came over the one day have. And I could just tell you were struggling and you explain to me what that was. And when Kevin size guys he's in. He was in physical excruciating pain Maman means it so how so you've been taking far less medication and the routine has been helping. Yeah. So less medication. That was poisoning me because I had to I would die. I literally they said if you keep taking them you'll die. You said you said one percent chance percent chance to rival from Stevens Johnson's. I was on the tipping point. If they hadn't caught it in the time. They did you wouldn't be sitting here. Talking to me, you're an anomaly in so many ways. But I'm glad blessed. I'm like, you know, it's all good. And and and so I found so excellent honeycomb reached out to me. When they saw the burns on the on the I feed the restarted said, look, we think this can help clear your skin. So they send to me and I use his eggs Mahoney. Co it's not a promo like they did save my skin like I. Secondary burns like from a fireman, but all from meds. So I did I did. I did the Honey Honey co- come from honeycomb and bees, and it healed my skin physically. And I wanted in my diet. I was eating so much inflammatory foods, which caused me to be seventy sixty five pounds heavier than I was that I have now, but the inflammatory foods were also causing the majority of my mental stress. So I had extreme paranoia every day most days, which meant that I would look around. I would see Mike my friend, Mike, my friend, logged my friend Spencer, and I would immediately think all three of your plotting to kill me right now. That was a day to day thing. Every speech. I went to thought the crowd of five thousand was ready to ambush the stage in every single day. But I did it anyway. And I said to myself, I'm gonna go do this. Because if I can give them a good message before I died, and that's Francois sent here to do. You know? So I was reading today. Stagnant minds are the breeding ground of fear is that that's what you were kind of suggesting is the cause of mental mental health issues is having a, you know, daily regimen that keeps you focused and keeps you on track. Is that the the main way that you can do it without meds that you suggest? I'm glad you put that together. Because here's the thing. Right. People who aren't doing things for other people are in more pain than those who are giving is the true receiving? It's about being Christmas. Right. Here's the deal. People who volunteer for a cause outside of themselves are sixty three percent more mentally well than those who do not. So the idea here, ladies and gentlemen, is to find your positive purpose? Get it go for it. Grab it take it use it and help change someone's life because it will change yours has that happened to you has that been your has been a huge piece of the puzzle for you moving forward with your life, and your recovery having this purpose to raise awareness and raise you know, and build this conversation around suicide awareness everywhere. I go in the world, and I travel everywhere, I can to to talk about this story when you tell someone story they tell you there's and then you've got hundreds of people sometimes thousands, depending on the audience that rushed the stage rushed down to the gym floor. And then they tell you their truth for the first time, they've never told anybody in their lives. I I have a purpose. My purpose is to ignite people to share the truth because of pain shared, Mike. Log Spencer is a pain haft. If you. Share your pain? If you never silence your pain, no matter if you're the toughest person in any room. You can always survive the pain I've been in pain since the day. I was born on sixth street in a crack motel that where my life began my parents are dead because of drugs, but because of mental illness, I will not follow that path. I tried to take my life. It will never happen. Again. If anybody tells you Kevin Hines died by suicide you open all out investigation. It was a murder. Let's fucking go have. So what do you what do you say to those? We get DM's all the time of of young people people in general just struggling with mental health, and like just what do you say to somebody who's considering taking their life, or, you know, they're they're just having those those self doubts about themselves a breakdown in real time example, six months ago, I was coming back to Atlanta my home with my wife on from a tour three week tour. I get to the Uber driver Uber pulls up I get a phone call from from Facebook or Instagram like, you know, the you can call him, but you so your phone call from instruments camera Facebook, I answer it. It's this kid sixteen year old kid, Colin, and Colin tells me that he couldn't make that I didn't because I didn't make it to my last speech for the tour because of trip to the weather. He was going to take his life. And he said, Kevin you you got through your pain. But I can't I said call how old are you said, I'm sixteen sitcom hold on stay on the fall of your brother and eventually got him to tell me his mom's phone number and his address. We got the police there in time. He's alive today. He calls me on a regular basis now, and he called her and really basis to let me know. He's safe. Look, it's not about what you say. Or how you say it, it's it's about engaging the individual in obvious lethal emotional pain and being there for that individual. We can argue about semantics of how to say the right thing on the wrong thing, if you look at them with kind eyes hospital hospital, hospitability and compassion with total empathy and entire lack of judgment for what they're thinking. If you don't tell them that what they're thinking is wrong. If you have to know that millions of people around the world think of suicide, and you say, I've got your back on lockdown, and I'm not leaving this room until I know you're saying, I'm not leaving this phone call until I know you're safe. We do that with people my wife, and I every single day multiple times a day. I'm my own crisis text line, but you can you can actually we can actually save more lives. You can text C N QR C N Q are two seven four one seven one. That's our foundations conquer keyword conquer. Your pain thirds to talk about your mental health normalized. The conversation asked the question, are, you suicidal and diva plan are is for recovery. Living proof. Concrete your pain and Texier QR to seven one seven. And if you're in crisis, they got you within minutes on lockdown, and they're going to keep you safe tonight. We've had three hundred fifty active recipes of lives saved since we launched that. So is a big thing. Would you encourage people who are who are struggling really to just reach out to somebody? And and and you're encouraging all of us to also reach back out to those people. Right. Yeah. So you got you gotta perfectly. This was not about just having them reach out because very few of them are going to it's about actively human beings across this nation around the globe searching daily for those people in that kind of augmented pain and then reaching out. So they don't have to reach in. So that we're both actually engaged in this process because what's going to happen. Is you have so many people who are quieting and sound sooner pain, we all need to be the stewards of hope in this hope nation. We all need to be the ones that go into them and say, hey, you look like you're on. Well, I just want to know what's going on. If we don't know the from Adam. And they who you and why do you care because I'm human, and I've been in pain, and you look like you are, and I got you. If you need my help, I'm here. Money, you say that because in the video we made what you just iterative was what you said that was the one thing that no one said to you. And I think that message is so important and even more so incredibly easy for everyone to do. It's it's very easy to show, compassion and care and be empathetic towards the person sitting to your left on a bus. If you may or may, not know them. Yeah. It's it's huge. Like, I was down in San Diego. I saw some guy walking down the street just crying, and we had just gotten food, and he served us food and here he's walking down the street crying. And we just went talked him. Hey, what's up, you know, he's trying to push us away. But we talked to him just to find out. You know, he's having an issue with his mom, but you don't know how much that conversation alone could help that person just that they know somebody actually cares. They see them struggling. I think that's huge. Like if you see someone struggling just talked talk Spencer. Does this thing it's called the I love you challenge. It actually went viral. How many you filmed it, and how many of us have we across all platforms got over one hundred million. So a lot of Scott that is a lot of us to get on a video of you doing what you go up to someone and say, yeah, just say I love you too random strangers. It was like we we all got together. And we're like, yeah. What if we just said, I love you to random people and see what their actions, simple concept of every speech. It's huge man that word like there's people. That go. You know, I grew up in a family where I was told. I love you every day multiple times. And I honestly took that for granted for the majority of my life. And I think there's a lot of people that go like potentially years without hearing that as grades at the end of every speech, I ask everyone to stand Italian by standing ovations now getting. Smart. Very smart. He's is everybody was physically capable of please stand. And I say, and I repeat after me my name your name, the repeat after me. And I say Kevin they say your name, Kevin Spencer, Logan. Mike. It's as my he struggles with that sometime. I am beautiful than they repeat. Kevin. I am one for they repeat cabinet. What could we do? This is to stood out. Here we go here. We got Kevin Spencer. My am I gonna feel beautiful Kevin? I am. I am amazing. Amazing. Kevin. I am I walking FINA right now. We are all walking phenoms. We're all we're not done. We are all wearing all intended to be here for Ron Ron tended to be here. Until our natural end. Suicide is never the solution to our problems. It is the problem. And I said repeat after me, I will I will never never die by my hand by my hands. I will fight the pain in spite of the pain pay thrive today so thrive today. Oh, do you have two point eight thrives today? And I will and I will be here tomorrow. Damn. Oh, I need an older one of these. I I can imagine. There that I say if nobody else tells you today, I love you. If nobody else tells you today are care about you. And if nobody else feels this way, I want you to be here until your natural end. Think of all the children that never make it past the womb, my wife, and I know that pain Jack, Ryan, Jack Rheinland eight weeks and no more. He wasn't intended to be here in to his physical form. But you all are for the simple fact that I get to look in your beautiful eyes. I know you're supposed to be here. Listen this man right here. DJ Dwayne Johnson. He saved my life. His book the rock says save my life. I see you are absolutely decked out in doing the rock Johnson shoes. Tunes. Even got the kicks headphones. Everything everything. So I I was going to ask you where you find your inspiration. Kevin. And obviously, Dwayne the rock Johnson. One of those people man, I put a credit in the movie thanking him, I never met the man I've been trying to meet them for twenty years. But he in his in his book, the rock says in that book. There was a line that read about his depression and how he fought to overcome that bout of depression, and that's the book I brought to every psych ward. Stay until my last of seven psych ward stays when this kid Watteau's messing water came up to me, and it was signed by the rock. My dad got it signed. And that's why I brought to every day because that read the highlighted passage, and I would stay alive every time, I was suicidal. I would stay alive because that book and this kid of water goes look man, I need that more than you do. And I was like nah brothers signed by the rock. I'm not I'm not giving this book. He's like man you'd understand a need that was he took a minute. And I was I had this me for seven courses means going to give it away to this kid and piece of my brain said, what would DJ do it? I was like here and he. Took it. And he said this is going to keep me alive. The rest of my life. And and if I never get to meet the man the myth the legend, I'll be happy knowing that I talk about it. And let them know that Iraq all his merch. I buy it when I comes out and one of the I two hundred people to buy his gear every time, and I do that. Because it means something to me he says, we're all projects I am a project, and I am one that is going to be completed at my natural end never dying by my hands holding my wife's hand like in the Vilna notebook number saw twice a cry during. I Colonel loves the notebook. Shoe question. Would you would you ever consider?

Now, they'll be a packed house. All right. Let's work on it. What else? What else you got going on? Okay. We're going on the docu series the journey right now the journey is about my travels around the world meeting. Individuals from all walks of life who have been positively affected by this story, we are sitting down with young and old alike. Every ethnic makeup, you can possibly imagine. We're going to all different countries to of every background. And we are meeting people who have written written into us online and said this story your story. Kevin saved my life changed my life. Brought me back to faith or saved my marriage. I get those a lot. So so we're going to go sit that none of them are going to know what they're gonna know. Now. Oh shit. I just missed that that please. None of them. None of their no doubt. None of them are gonna know that I'm coming. They're just going gonna know that they're being filmed for the docu series about how my story affected the lives that I walk in surprise. And it's been going really, well, so far the next is a time to shine a docu series about a company called the shoeshine guilt. This is my baby I was going to do this before I did sues other ripple effect. This is my baby we three main characters three owners of the shoeshine guild, a company that shine shoes and give six months sober substance. Users a life they've been six months over they get them, six months overthrew transient, meditation, and too hard, work, and hustle. And then they keep them sober. If they're relapsing back on the job in a matter of weeks, and they say they've saved thousands of lives across the country there in L, A, New York, London, and Japan, and they are shining shoes to save lives, and their model is shine or die a stylus soak. And I would very much. I can I tell Mike something real quick really special like Mike, my just talking to Mike no pressure, Mike. It would be my true and greatest honor. If you sir would be the host of a time to shine. I would I would. Love that dude. I love that. I the thing is I haven't I've done a disservice in a lot of ways to people in not talking about my kind of my personal struggles with with addiction, and I won't get steal the shine today too much. But as you know, as I struggled with with addiction for a long time for for over eight years, and I really don't talk about that a lot is. I don't want to interrupt you in any way. But I've made this mistake before if you're going to dive deep not love to wasn't. I was just going to say I was gonna say which I'll get to in time. But then yeah, I was just gonna say do you want to do this wearing that outfit? Oh. No, no, no. We don't we don't have to. But yet. So there's no it's gonna get clipped and we're just going to get on. I don't want to. It's a it's a good point. That's a very solid point. Anyway. So so so so I will I will say this. It's a topic that I will talk about when the time is right. And this episode is not that. And I knew that. But but that being said, it's a cause that's very close to me. And so, yeah, it'd be I would love to work with you on that that would mean the world to me. I mean, the world to me, and and to the people watching that show, it would have real value added because you've been there, and and this is going to be the quintessential docu series on on substance use disorder, not addiction not drug use substance use disorder my birth. Parents died of substitutes disorder, very tragically my birth. My adopted father, Patrick his his uncle was one of nine children two or stillborn five of them. Died of liver ceres, alcoholism, cirrhosis and uncle Kevin was thirty years drunk and thirty years sober. He was my savior. He went to every Sykora's day. I was in. Kevin may you rest in peace? Migrate don't Kevin twenty people got up at his funeral to say uncle, Kevin save my life. And he took me to his last ten ships today before he died, and that's how I learned to tell stories. Was thrown from Kevin. And so I'm so blessed that I've gotten the second chance at life and log I can't squander it. And we have got to help as many young low gangsters and the world as humanly possible more live. Always we have to be fulfilled. This have purpose to have purposes to be fulfilled. We got this unlocked down the healthiest social media family. One one thing I wanted to to hear from you a little bit more about just to help people who are dealing with mental health exiled depression. You mentioned you're cutting out anti inflammatory foods. I don't know if you guys knew this. But seventy percent of the serotonin is produced in the gut which is directly responsible for your mood and depression. So obviously, you're probably aware of that. So what are some tips with food? Yeah. You're finding out. I wish I brought it with me. But there's a book called genius food by max Louviere, a personal friend of mine. Four written by miminize? Dr Oz was just on and genius foods is all non inflammatory foods to heal your. Brain. Why do you think the military has so many suicides you could every military base in the country? What are they have a Taco Bell, a Starbucks and subway all major inflammatory offenders and all these guys are eating every day is this inflammation, and they're mentally unstable every single day. And until we change that they're going to be mentally unstable. And they're gonna die by suicide twenty two times a day. Right. So so I if we were we were to change the foods in our high school system in our grade school system to not be rubbish and garbage that we're feeding our children every day and not allow the FDA to control so much of our food. We could change the world's depression situation in a matter of months. Yeah. Well, I'm I just got back from Finland a month ago, and they're they don't allow any soda, no preservatives, nothing in their schools. It's all local, it's all organic everything. It's not all plant based. But it's all organic and local. Yeah. Which I I'm I'm on the same page. It's insane. The types of food we eat, and we don't have that education about them. Now, we see the. The rise of mental health issues. It's kinda directly linked to what we're eat. It's not kind of it is absolutely one hundred percent directly linked to it. I was living with extreme every single frickin day everyday. I thought multiple people trying to kill me out to try and Herbie. I thought houses we're gonna come alive and eat me. That's how bad my psychosis. Was I was seeing things like death himself hovering over my bed with his staff and blade telling me to come home with them as is lit a fire in Skuld face. But I don't see any of that anymore because of the food. I eat my depression. I can knock out in an hour clinical depression about of depression in an hour. My paranoia is if the when they vary rarely now come about I can knock mountain minutes, and I knocked them out by doing active exercises to remove that from my body, and my mind, and I made sure that I ingest healthy things to feed my mind, positive non inflammatory foods that make sure my brain functions at it's focused. It's amazing. So do you have like a couple of foods to stay away from and then a couple of foods to maybe swap it out that just for the people, you know, anything that comes in a plastic wrapping or a box. No more. Okay. Let's be Frank. I have I've non inflammatory foods ninety percent of the time. I still enjoy my treats on my cheat days, the upper I'm very careful about it. Because too much my skin flares up. I get burns or my head. Goes wild getting paranoid. Dairy is one of the biggest culprits in mental stress and mental instability dairy is one of the biggest culprits in mental stress and mental instability. If you all would just quit dairy, which was only meant milk was only meant she was only meant for babies that can digest it a seventy five percent of the population cannot digest area properly. It just goes to your brain messes, you up very is a very easy one to cut out for those of you listening at home. I cut it out when I first came to L A and only seen positive benefits from it. But I will say it sounds like a bit of a geographical thing. It's very easy to eat healthy in LA and bad food out of your diet. But man when I was living in Ohio thousand a corner, easy called what is it called food deserts food does know accessibility to to. To any kind of healthy foods and people kind of get stuck in the cycle of eating fast foods, Kev, one thing. I want to ask you is. You've talked a lot about foods. And you know, I think it's it's probably a part of the puzzle. But I think at the same time, it's it's an a one there's a massive kind of collection of things that you do what are some of the other things that you do to kind of keep a straight. So so I have a top ten I've to ten steps called the art of wellness, which you can find my YouTube channel two it's on the playlist the art wellness. So I tend steps twelve videos three minutes each about a better your mind brain behavior on physical wellbeing. The first step is therapy. Finding the therapy that works for you. This doesn't mean talk there before everybody some people like Ecuador therapy. Water therapy, some people like floating. I mean, I it's up to you like floating. I'd mentioned the Logan the other day. One of my most interesting things for me would be having a lazy river in my yard. I mentioned this. He's he almost convinced me to do it. He really wants. As in backyard. It's been a for your brain so much. It's a one. Well, now that there's like a medical. Need for it? Like so flying to find therapy that works for you. Okay. Eating healthily, most meals most most days sleeping. Well, most nights five nights a week. I've been sleeping nine to ten hours. We got I feel fucking great. And you. Great. I'm used to beard far. I really enjoyed it. But dude, it's already grown bass. He'll clears faces though, we look beautiful as always thank you bearded. Very feel like you were just just like a lumber. Bounty men. The bureau gave me acne bad acne and wisdom though too and wisdom though. To the beard. What was the is name? Jimmy Jimmy was beers. Namely. I thought it was harmony I never named the beard. I never named the beard should've beard not. That's not bad. Don't own are selling. We miss you. And we'll we'll hope to see you soon again by man. It sounds like a lot of things that you're saying are are about moderation as sleeping most. Well, most nights, and I'm a I'm a huge proponent of that too. I believe strongly cheat days, and in and in, you know, a party a week if anything mean Logan, call them full sentences. Saturday's we'd like to go hard on Saturdays. You go crazy otherwise Ryan solid, man. So eating healthy exercising educating myself as the nature bipolar disorder. I read literally every publication that has ever come out about bipolar disorder. Every everyone that comes out in at a Google alert. I'm ready for it. And I'd I'd just the best ways currently to benefit my brain health, so exercise eating healthily education, coping strategies, like drawing painting and writing those. My habits music therapy helps me a lot and helps me sleep actually when I'm not sleeping. Well, so asleep pattern that is intact. Most days. And then I also have refrained from drugs for Malcolm. I don't wanna end up like my birth. Parents never gonna touch those things. I stopped drinking alcohol the day. I turned twenty one. It was a bad scene. I had to let it go where you stop drinking alcohol the day turned twenty one. Yes. So twenty twenty one years of age, I was in Chico with some friends partying, and I got a little too wild Enron bunches. And I messed up a lot of people's night. And I was poisoning flight three days food poisoning alcohol pointing for two days. Mom. So I do all these things to benefit my brain health once at the Ottawa my play playlist and people are saying that it's helping to save lives every day sits lower. So he just texted me. He said, I was so right. Jake, jake. He said is dead yet your house. Let me come fuck them up. We knew it. He's going on priorities. It's all good turmoil. Over about Rex so coping strategies refraining from drugs and alcohol. I did quit alcohol consumption. I was way too gone on that stuff. I would get so drunk that would affect other people's lives in a bad way. I got that last bout of alcohol poisoning. And I was done. I quit. I quit overnight which I don't recommend it very dangerous to your body. You could die. Don't don't get help. I was a binge drink on the Ryan injuring until blackout many weekends. So I had to cut out of my system, and I do all of these things and so much more. Because if I don't log my Spencer, I won't be here man, these thoughts, they creep in and they try to destroy me. And I got this. I got this devil on my shoulder. Trying to hurt me. But you know, we're all in the same pain just different levels were on the same game. Just different devils. We all got to fight the rock said that. Confuses it. I always he did it's wrong. All in the same game. We're on the same game. Just different levels were on the same page just different devils confuses at first Confucius said that yet it Google that hold on a second confusions. I'm sure a lot of people have said it in so. Probably got it for. Con-? It wasn't Iraq original. I don't I don't know. We're finding out though Logan's. That gesture port Logan. Born in five hundred fifty one BC which is a long time ago. So so you're like, what are the language? He spoke at translated to devils and levels eight basically, what he basically what he said in short term was there's levels to the ship was responsible. Today. There's levels to this to this shit. I'm actually getting a tattoo if my wife will permit of of it's a beautiful tattoo of it's not of me. Now, I'm not enjoy dead pool. It's it's the many faces of deadpool the comic book character. And here's why deadpool is analogous to paint. And so am I I've been in? There was born and deadpool the comic character by lie field, and marvel absolutely changed my life forever because I realized dead for that pain is inevitable. But suffering is optional and I've never suffered a damn my life. I've been in pain for a long time. But I'm not one suffered. I mean, given the gift of a second chance at life. I'm not gonna squander and I'm putting that on my back. We're all the whole thing the whole computer saying, and and paint his sufferings optional with a bunch of deadpool's melted together on my back, and it's going to be sick as your. We all get together of that whole tattoos tattoos in general each other's faces. Yeah. That's the deadpool hat Yemen. I wear it all day every every thanks so much. Deadpool hat, my deadpool, socks deadpool underwear briefs. Okay. Not boxers. All right. Well, why why why Greece 'cause 'cause they fit you know, what I'm saying? I want to hear something. I haven't worn on new earn probably five you all my true. That's so true. True. Try that have I don't have on on right now. Why do you do that? His pants to that guy going there. Listen going going there. Quickly. Speaking of levels Yemen to the show to enter the campaigning for a role in deadpool three race finally row. Just got it. I being a level. How important is have. How important is perspective too. So something that happened to me recently was I am speaking of veterans and military throat through a brand campaign. I did I met a guy by the name of Travis mills in Maine. Okay. Not to be confused with t mills here in LA the rapper met Travis mills he's one of the only surviving quadruple amputees from Afghanistan from the war in Afghanistan. So he in an effort to protect his his his group. He picked up an ID backpack and blue both his arms and both legs off, and he came back, and you know, went through this this complete and utter like, re working and relearning of everything. And when I met him he was one of the most positive people I've ever met in my life. What I can tell. What I can tell tell them the story of when you first when I first loft up. So I'm he reached out with his with his hand, his prosthetic prosthetic hand, and I went to shake it. And I shook anyone and scared the shit. And I thought I thought I'd be a little thought I'd heard. Oh. What is doing has no arms? He told his wife. Leave me you'll be good for the rest of your life. Take the kid take my daughter don't ever talk to me. Again. Let me bear this pain myself. She did not leave an in that in that time since then he has started a foundation called the Travis mills foundation in Maine that takes in other amputation. Those wounded at war to have a safe place to re acquaint themselves to society prior to going out into the world. And when I met him all of my struggles. And there've been plenty I won't get into him. But. Faded away a little bit because I looked at him. And I said this dude has been through fucking hell, dude, you know. And I'm so how important is perspective to and thinking that no matter what someone is going through something worse than you are perspective is absolutely paramount. If you look at things in a certain lens of suffering, and and if you feel pity for yourself and self loathing that's going to be the the lesson. You learn the lesson you leave for the rest of your life. You're going to be in that dark place. But if you look at life and all the pain life brings everyone everyone's in pain everyone's been in pain. Look when I when I hit the water, and I came up to the surface seventy feet. I swam with one breath about these my lakes a sea line saga beneath. He kept me afloat until the coast guard boat ride behind me, no joke. I I've proved that and and and and in the in the ambulance in the coastguard fish beyond the water in the coast guard boat guy looks at me says do you understand young, man? How many people we plot of these waters that are already gone. I said, no, sir. I don't wanna know he some tell you. Anyway, he said young man, this unit is pulled fifty seven dead bodies from these waters and one live one. Perspective. Right. I was the only one that that unit had ever saved. Chris an and when you look at that. And you go Kay. I've got a C and look at life differently. Every place. I get to go. I love to the tend to because I almost didn't get to see it everything. I everything I get to do is a gift because I almost couldn't at every single person. I get the distinct privilege and honor to meet to get to know and get to love is a gift from the heavens above 'cause we almost never had the opportunity to grace each other's presence. How do you lose? How could you lose with that mentality? Like, how could you lose them? I could die tomorrow. I would have the most fulfilled life of anybody. I know there's something big that I I've noticed and you've obviously no notice the way more will travel in the world doing these events mental health like you, you kind of have maybe like an extreme case that some people might not be able to relate to that are dealing with depression or anxiety just on a small level. But from what I've. Scene. Mental health is something that doesn't just happen overnight. You know, it's something that can really slowly compound an add up until somebody's in their fifties sixties. And then that's when it's triggered. So what do you suggest to the people that maybe are dealing with some minor things, but they need to take action now, and they're not to those of us sitting down on the couch play millio, solid till the cows come home are those of us who are sitting stagnant in their in their lives, not working tirelessly for what they wanna do what they love or they can't find what they love. And they can't find the purpose. Here me when I say this. You still have time. We have plenty of time to die guys. We're all gonna die roller die not. But it doesn't have to be by our hands. If you give the world time to have things change, you might get to have that beautiful future that you never even desired or imagined. I would have never met Margaret Hines the love of my life, my best friend and my rock. I would never had my dog. Max sharpei look just like my dad never had it with all the wrinkles. Never had him life for the time. We did. I would never have to God children that loved me unconditionally. So here's my point is that you have time to die. Let it happen naturally. If you're not gonna pain, and you're not doing the things you need to do to balance that pain. What are you? What are you waiting for? There's no better time. Like the present suicide never asked to be your solution. What you have to do is recognize your value. I look in the camera say this. Yes, please. Alright. Those podcasters number one podcast in the world right here. All right. Tom true of all time writer for those podcast watching number one podcast in the world of all time right here. We're sitting in. All right. I know you're listening. I know you're watching. If you're in suicidal crisis right now, I think you need to do is stop and breathe. Four into the nose eight to the mouth pursed lips like a whistle. No, sound stop breathe. Stop breathe. You got plenty time to die. It doesn't have to be by your hands. That destroys everyone left behind but don't feel guilty about it. You wanna live because you deserve this life. You deserve a purpose and a future, and you can and we'll find it. And here's what I'll say to you right now. I live by motto here. I am send me it was a military coin for civilian efforts in suicide prevention giving me by commander Nichols of the B two bomber operation here. I am send me if you need my help at Kevin Hines story holler. Boy. It takes me six eight months to get back to you will. But I promise you, I will be patient and recognized that you you're going to die some day. Let it happen naturally because you'll have all that time to change everything for the better to be more positive tad more light love in your life. You deserve to be here until your natural end. And if you need my help, I will be there, and that's a promise. You have made this your life mission. Kev, and you are doing such good things for the world. You've started a foundation. Yes. The Kevin Margaret Heinz foundation, sir. Which by the time. This video will be out. It was it was the Pudi video I pledged to make a donation to it which at the time of the recording. I don't know how much it's going to be hearing. You talk is so evident to me that you will do wise with the money, and that you will use it to do the thing you were meant to do on this planet. How how do you plan on making your Mark with the Kevin Margaret Hindson Dacian where what is your mission statement? Our mission statement is that if there's anybody in pain, we've got your back on lockdown for the rest of your life. And if you need us, we will be there in some capacity in every capacity that we can. And this foundation is going to give free therapy to kids and families who otherwise couldn't afford it. Free talk therapy that so many kids need for the struggles in the pain neglect and the abused. They're going through and the mental stress and mental suffering, and we are going to help them recognize to values through extensive therapy. And we're gonna fund that effort, partly because you logged so thank you very much. First of all, it's it's going to happen. And and and we're also going to be creating our conquer programs Akon curriculum for grade schools high schools and colleges all over the world. Insane. Would you would you say that mental health and substance abuse is the biggest issue that America faces right now? So the CDC just come out with a report that the mortality rate of human beings has gone down for the first time, and I think sixty years based on the based on the dynamic of opioid crisis. And suicide suicide is driving down our life expectancy in right now. And this is the second rise in suicides in this country in the last two years, which is unprecedented. If we do not act now and get all these silos organizations to come together and stop being competitive with each other. And actually find solutions to save lives. We are going to be in a world of pain caused by suicide very very soon more than we already are. So we we can do this together brother, and we have to it's a must. It's what I'm here for Kevin. Can I just add one thing? Do I think it's it's crazy how it's basically been a year since we first met you. It's getting it's getting to the one year anniversary. And I just got to say as kind of like a by STAN. Do it like this is the thing about mistakes like mistakes in this culture that we live in our like people are just thrown down for them. But if it wasn't for mistakes that we've all made in our life. We wouldn't have met you. And like what we're doing right now wouldn't have been able to happen. So I think that's kind of something that you've that. I that I take away from this at I'm really grateful for is big dog. And we got a we got a we make mistakes. But if we get back up and make an effort to do good. There's some beautiful things that can come from that man, Spence, you are you already got the blue, and, but this one's views. Well, 'cause vision, thank you. And I, and I know, you know, LP's already made a 'cause this a cause to be a part of for a long time, and I can tell you whether it be through making that necessarily introductions to get you on the right stages, or you know, helping you on the legislature the content side, whatever it is. I got your back, bro. Brother. Always. Well, we might need you back to go in front of congress. With Patrick Kennedy, very soon whenever you're ready. Let's go. Yeah. We're gonna make a difference or to do it together. And the only way to survive suicide is together with no blame and no guilt at didn't die because you are in spotty the die because of an epic unrelenting lethal emotional pain that had nothing to do with you wipe that guilt off your shoulders that doesn't belong to you. I lost seven people including my birth. Mom, which my family, doesn't let's to talk about. But that's a fact, and I I'm not gonna lose else. I love that's for damn sure. I it's amazing, bro. Be here.

Hi, this is Matt Hines founder and president of Heinz marketing in this is my sales tip for today. You know, there's a lot of things I could cover. There's a lot of things that we do with our clients as well as things we do internally from a sales perspective. But the one thing that I think is accessible and important for everybody is to have a set of daily habits to have a disciplined approach to things you're doing on a daily basis. Sometimes it's a bunch of little things that add up to helping yourself create more predictable pipeline. I have what I call it. My daily do list. It's on my tasks list every day once I take it off of the tasks for the date automatically shows up on the next business day, and it's based on a checklist of things that I need to do every day to feed my network to end in defeat my pie. Line. I have a version of this is actually laminated that I take with me when I travel, but, you know, even if you just have it in your inbox or have it just as a piece of paper, I think reminding yourself of those little things those tactics. Those habits that helped drive behavior and help drivers volts is really important. So for example, on mine, you know, it's a reminder look at my calendar from yesterday the meetings. I'm the meetings. I had to make sure I've done follow up to make sure I've connected with people on Lincoln to make sure I've sent any. Thank you notes or whatever else to do. There's a reminder to look at a few different filtered reports for me in Salesforce in our marketing automation platform to look at you know, the accounts that we're tracking to look for buying signals to look for any changes to look for, you know, behavior with our content that I can follow up with. We also have a series of filters in linked in that can tell us about particular trigger events, if someone in my first connections has changed jobs that could be a trigger event that could lead to some opportunity. So looking at that on a daily basis in knowing what my follow up processes is important, that's all documented in my daily dualist if you. Listening this you'd like a copy of your sample of what my daily Dula. So I'm happy to share it with you. Then we cannot make that available somehow. I'm sure the Scott can figure out how to do that. And we could put a link in to to doing that either put it up on slide share or whatnot. I guess the moral the story on that for me is that there's always, you know, room for strategic improvement thinking about like who are we targeting, and how are we going after them? But you know, the top one percent of sales people will consistently tell you that their success is tied to consistence repeatable behavior. It's doing the little things as doing them every day. It's putting in the time and effort to do those things on regular repeatable predictable basis. So that's what I got this about Heinz from Heinz marketing, thanks so much for listening. Now, Matt sent me the PDF of his daily do list, and all you have to do to get. It is click on the link in your podcast player or go to daily sales dot tips forward slash twenty three.

Come to prompt station awesome so so before we dive into what we're about to talk about. What's your favorite thing about being Jamaican That's a great question. Actually what I like about being Jamaican especially since I'm What would be considered a Jamaican immigrant? Because I was born here in the night and left and went to the US. Where I spent most of my life and have just recently returned. I love that we are so tiny so relevant everywhere in the world. I love the world's affection for Army Lila. Yeah so in other words let me put it in Jamaica pilots right Willie Catala. Yes yes being a positive that Taiwanese. Yes yes and just me and and literally you embodied that. Because you're not you're not quite so a big person you know in body physically or your fatigue and all of that so and you come with a you know at dose of Awesomeness and amazing this. That's a new year going to unleash enough later as we develop our conversation. So let's talk about the fundamentals of an epic transmission Let me just kind of you know. Lady atmosphere that prompted there is no greater person to talk about Transformation than you I know of your story out that'd be that'd be story has been published in the papers here. Jamaica's well but for those who don't know and you know you're being introduced to them for the very first time. Give us a glimpse of why you think I would say that you know you are the transformation queen. Yeah I I think the main word that embodies my life experience really is epic in context of transformation. Because something epic is just really grand. You know and I I think I had a relatively normal life growing up and I was born to a teenage mom actually and easily just integrated her family so my grandparents and my mom and her brothers and sister raised me and my my dad lived in America and eventually I went and lived with him at university. And you know a married my high school sweetheart and I think I was on the path that we are. We being society to become a expects for a young woman you know and I was happy on that path. Had the dream of the whole Senate kids picked on picket fence. You have the American dream. I did actually lived it out to the point where it became a nightmare. A nightmare looks like is just After having three children and Being apart off I think a working culture especially since about grown in tick on my my job was primarily technology work with macy's systems and technology in Atlanta at the time when I started to feel like very overwhelmed you know I think if I had been diagnosed at that time it would have been picked up that maybe there was some On that end depression happening in my life already. I don't think most persons are aware of that way. Initially statistically I was struggling in my marriage and I wanted to create a fresh start so I decided. Hey let's pack up and move the entire family to Jamaica which we did right around the end of two thousand eight and in two thousand nine You know things in my life while my career continued to expand grew by then I was VP software development company. Everything else in life of spells on slow staying on the very miserable. Almost I felt like I was really excelling workwise and then in areas of Nov even spirit tragedy that got lost my connection with source with my source with my kids It's been as much time with them and I certainly wasn't having fun Healthy Fun after about a year so being in Jamaica. We were the company that I came to work with was acquired by a Canadian company which was the whole point in our all. These tech companies now are going for acquisition. You know so that we can grow and become the next Unicorn and so a Canadian company acquired awesome and we had to move to Canada and that was right around twenty twenty nine in twenty ten. I feel that by life okay. So let's pause there so you you packed up and you came back in twenty two thousand eight at the end you end up. Two dozen needs to Jamaica and two thousand ten you had to move to cannon the and this you move from the US to Jamaica and then by To Canada so right hold on the things that we can impact there but Let's let's continue this story at those points into very clear. You know connecting all those dots. Yes and I appreciate that because for me. I think I talk about it. Like it's just a well known rights right literally moving entire houses and people that in all things out but what happened in twenty ten is that as I came into the New Year knowing that the company that I had just moved to work with was now being relocated. I was head of that relocation team. My marriage had accurate started to fall apart asked for a divorce and then changed online and said I want to separate region so by the time we hit March I was Separated from my now ex husband. My husband and I was actively company working even more hours than I was initially getting the team and my family ready for transition to Canada and remember that point so then at one point you talk a boat You know living the American dream or perhaps the nightmare because no I'm thinking you know maybe we could perhaps term this discussion when your dreams become a nightmare. Yeah but anyway keeps yes. Oh Gosh to even though I would say that the break up with my With my ex was was very traumatic actually on the experience of it never experienced anything in sight of that magnitude. You know and I somehow I didn't stop to think abode myself in all of it just felt like. Oh what I need to keep going and I now have three kids right and you're in Canada steel. So yes I want you to take us back to. When you came back to Jamaica this is this is actually before I got council so this is still twenty ten. I'm in transition showcase Honda. Okay under in April. I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Respond to be moving in In June and So that of breast cancer on top off separation and relocation me in what I now know was an extreme. Don What's sparrow? It's like that moment where I considered a life collapsed because I everything that I knew to be true about. My life had fallen apart and now I was physically falling apart when things fall apart. Okay yes and not what? This really cool What I consider it cool now because I tried some really crazy things to make sure that I was going to stay alive because I was deathly afraid of dying in particular because of my children it was listenable and more votes. I don't want to be my kids because they didn't sign up for this relocating all over the place. I didn't sign up a mommy and daddy splitting up and I certainly didn't sign up a mummy dying. You know so I was. I was squared faced with that and the fear of this had me in. Its firm grip on this. I tried all different urban medicines. I did you urology which is drinking. He I travelling. Okay Yeah it's a it's a thing. I tried different types of supplements and eventually I was. My doctor. Said that the council was moving are growing at a very rapid rate. And they wanted me to everything. That was mentioned Chemo to the radiation wants me to to the drugs and I was afraid of that too so I came up with this store that I was gonNA figure my way of blending the parts of medical traditional therapy with my own version of that and so hooked up with a a Vegan nutritionist in Atlanta and I spent three months with him being liquid Vegan where he would feed me. He would make my food. Mostly juice is at soups and so I went liquid Vegan for three months and during that time I also did radiotherapy and other types of therapy like acupuncture and deep meditation. Schon all kinds of things I did at by then. I was now moving to Canada so I was literally like while I was in Atlanta going through treatment. Moving Yours leaving your movie interviewing new team members to meet me in Canada it was I was still working. It was the kids. Were you know with my mom at this point? Because they couldn't stay with me I wasn't capable of taking care of them and myself and And so I ended up being separated from them for like six months because I then went to Canada. I was in Canada for three months and I was then at. That point is when I slipped into depression all right so depression because depression just doesn't happen You know like that. It's a series of things that in my ex experience an estimate because I I recall just even last last Last year when towards the end of the year like first of all over time. I've always been depressed. There are moments. You know depressant stuff but I I kind of knew how to manage it. You know manage it with my personality. Manage it would shifting thinking positively and all of that stuff but towards the end of the year when I just decided. I'm just going to be started doing less than I was. Just going to be and and still. It was like a wind into this dark dark please because I was not doing as much as I was and so I was in touch with my emotions and make it was. It was just so dark I I mean it became really miserable. No talk to me. I boats being in a in in that state of depression. I mean you're you're thinking about moving and you're interviewing FA job when you're moving you're interviewing for jobs. You're GONNA be going back to Canada at your children. You're you're worried about them because you know you're fearful that you're going to die and you WANNA leave them. Those are natural on concerns. That and and I mean genuine concerns that you have. When did you realize that you became depressed? And what you thought. What is that you thought that would of lead to depression? Because it's not just any one thing right. I was one of those persons that denied my mental illness. And when I say denied it meaning that I didn't even consider the fact that I was crying every single day in hiding it alot red black thought. I was working hard and moving. You know going. Through a divorce so What my my doctor In Canada sent me to see us. I package on honest and why and when I got to my first appointment. She said to me. The only reason you're here is either because he you you're gonNA leave. You're on pills to treat your mental illness or I'm going to admit you to the hospital. And so when she said that I bought that was like you have got to the lady. I said there is nothing wrong with me. Denial and At the end of the first session which left me crying as as I had again. She diagnosed as depressed and And I begged her. Let's try the Freudian Poss- off therapy outcome as often as I need to address. Joel wants to get medication because I'm doing so much other stuff. What is cancer a? Don't want to think I want to put anything else in my body. You not let's let's try something else and she said that she would give me a month of the want the psychiatry at she would put me on sleeping pills and if that wasn't shifting me if she didn't see where my conversations were shifting particular direction then she was going to have to take other action so it came up with that agreement and then. I saw her for about a year and and didn't end up putting me in the hospital or on any addition on medication other than sleeping pills so mental illness for me was Was a shock and also a big learning. I gained so much appreciation for that type of therapy and for mental illness. In general because it was a really poor stigma that thankfully there is a lot of light being shed on. It is very poor. Stigma are on persons who are mentally ill and our won't being treated for that and so there was a great deal of shame for me in. I didn't actually talk about my mental illness and really just now between last year and this year top a lot more about mental illness as a component even off critical diseases like cancer because it really does create so much hardship in your life. That almost natural result is mental. Illness as we say Jamaica Mystic Opin Rate Here so mental illness. Why do you think there's just a shame that's associated with no so for example you you had cancer and you you went for treatment and that's okay you know that's what we do? We have heart Challenges we go on. We get our hearts checked out but when he comes on to a brain what is why. Do you think there's such a stigma associated with that With mental illness. I just think because over high we have not we not really cultivated an acceptance of persons. That have a sickness of the brain are of a mind and so most times because I think persons may not have been able to readily accept them in in society. John Because you're not quite sure hope depression or anxiety or psychosis going to show up and so because you have some extreme cases of mental illness like psychosis where people actually can hurt people. Are they just start acting crazy crazy in public? I think there is a shame with you. Know controlling that and putting the person out a ways that you're not seeing that where there wasn't really so much empathy and compassion for for what could be considered an embarrassing way of acting are being. It's almost like well. You should be able to control that part of annual Miss Ray and whenever we kind on the fence something we have a tendency to just write it off off yes absolutely so so yes so that was my mental at the start of my mental illness journey and what ended up happening as a result is that I started to pay attention to myself before. Then the EIB with everything else happening I really wasn't paying attention to myself on paying attention to the thoughts that were going on in my mind all right so no 'cause you're kind of segue into where we're going to get. Which is you know the fundamentals of an epic transformation. So where are you know and I mean because we know based on you know the end of the story is I mean just put it out there? Of course you know you're cancer free right and all of that and your as a matter of fact let me just ask you to share your own story where are you know where are you know and then we can just go into what what it is that you think led to to the place. You're at right now. Yes so where I am. Now is first of all mentally healthy and stable I'm also cancer three yes. I'm happy to say that I'm a hundred and thirty two pounds because at the time when I was sick I was like a little bit over ninety pounds and eating well again. I'm not particularly if I choose to eat that way than I do but I stay away from a lot of different types of foods. That aren't healthy for you in any regard and I'm very successful. I'm actually doing a lot more than I was doing then. I work with great company as you shared earlier. And I'M A chairman of a couple boards director I've been recently enacted the president of the Computer Society. Here Mike Kids are thriving. It's been it's been ten years. This is actually my ten year. What we call the cancer verse three but my ten year since diagnosis and so my daughter. My youngest was two years time. And she's now twelve and my all three of my kids are doing very very well. My son is in school in university and my other two daughters are here with me and I'm officially officially divorced for years now. An and thriving. I'm doing much better and financially stable. I have a new partner that and building a whole different kind of relationship with a have a network of amazing persons that support me that I can. I can lean on whenever I feel like I need additional help. Have a wonderful circle of friends including new Hanukkah people that are like minded forward saint goes and I have my own company where I get to recreate the tools at us to help me shift my life for individuals and also using some of those same tools to help me work with companies are looking to achieve greatness and it's no accident that it's called epic transformation. Breads are so in order for experience at epic transformation. Because you know speaking no listening to you share. Its share your journey yes. I'm inspired buried and everything and others listening to be inspired by but and it it kinda sound like wall it was just like from eight to be and it was like an instant transition and transformation which. I'm sure it wasn't right What are some of the fundamentals even as you share with Parsons that you consult with and companies that you consult with? How do you move from a place of darkness? Sandown an in that Rut into transforming into being transformed into the life that you want to live the life that that gives you joy because it doesn't make sense here just getting just You know like you're you're on a hamster wheel right. So what are the fundamentals of having this epic transformation that we all want? Yeah well at the core off any epic transformation is you were the individual. I think we we really take for granted how critical it is for us to self audit and to ensure that we are observing ourselves both mentally and physically and coming from that of the Sean is self awareness right and I believe that without that self awareness transportation is not possible so self awareness happens first and then from the space of self awareness. It is creating a vision for the person that you want to become the life experience. You want to lead and when you're creating that vision is not just about putting Papa John. Because he wouldn't even need. Ib John Boarding. Shelly is not is not is just one way of doing it right. But it's really getting your mind programmed around what that new person and that new life experience could be so even if you're upset and stressed when you are in that upset and stress are that contrast experience you want to try to immediately think of what would I like instead initials shift. So you're into misery. Know what misery is what would I like instead and it's not to try to. I want to be happy nor get more grandmother. That goes clear. You're not happy right so what I said. If you're laying in bed all day long will just be great to be able to go outside. You know. Just some low hanging That are the instead of what I have noticed is what I would like and doing that. Type of radicals focus every single day. And it's not that you're GONNA be joyful every single day. It's just that you know that something else. Other than despair misery Darkness exists is at its at knowledge that it's there and looking towards the light always looking towards the light so let me pause right there and ask questions for those who perhaps all live. Every known is darkness. They have no idea what light looks like. You're always in darkness. Then that's what you know. And that's what you even become comfortably Do you even know What is that you that you want? If you've never experienced anything other than that that rotten darkness in dismal state that you're in so the way that I like to look at that is if you haven't experienced it for yourself you are definitely comparing it to something. So what is that thing? Who is that person? Many of us who are stuck in our we see other people we observe other things whether it's through social media through Tv shows or through the just being on the internet or through talking to other persons and seeing what their lives look like. So I don't believe in fake it to make it necessarily but I do believe in spotting a mentor or spotting an opportunity that if somebody else can have it having the knowing that I can have to believe that. Initially you could just eight okay. Hanukkah has this show amd stock wrote. I don't want anything else. What darkness annot handed guy talks to all these people? But that's that's not me. It is taking that first step in your mind it to save but what. I'm using somebody else to model the what if even if you have been to experience it for yourselves so it intrinsic in that argument you've made is that really no money isn't island. We actually need each other so you may not be able to even identify. We're just having a conversation because for me. I recognize many things that I'm doing. Even this very podcast is as a result of a conversation. There are so many things that happen as a result of a conversation. You know I remember having a conversation with Leandra boat going all digital. This is not really We're at intended to go. Because it was supposed to be business regard you know other business ventures but anyway It took a turn started focusing digital took a turn when I spoke with Ingrid for example. And you know let's go online and we have this whole online discussion thing about you know going on nine so it again. What you are saying. Stacy is that it is important to get other people involved. Don't think that you have to do it alone. I like to say you can't call yourself by yourself. Provided very solid very true right and I am everything is possible. Everything is because we are in our world we're experiencing everything we're experiencing the darkness we're experiencing tremendous light and it is in that space of knowing that everything is if my darkness is possible. Light is also possible fifty. I don't believe that the time you can believe ready gone and honestly we could have this conversation for Ian. Because is right up mysteries you know talking about transforming the mind because I s where you start. It has to start in the mind. That's what you know. That's that's where you I identify you. Come up with an idea. Somebody asked me the other the hallways. He's I'm able to do all these things. And and so on and and what it and then as it listen I it starts with a decision. Right it's Disa- John for me. Once I decided to do something once I discuss an emmy that Israel to do it and then followed by. That decision is the fact that I'm the first action. Because you can decide you're you're gonNA do something and not acting on it. That's totally different ballgame right so it's very important That we we we we. We take a decision and take the steps. The first step to to get it done know again. I just want to ask you to close off right here in terms of what I didn't ask you about you. Know the transformation and Song You WanNa share for you do however or after whichever way you want to do it but I also WanNa get from you because your stories on the Internet. It's on you know you're gonNA Google wherever you find you find Stacy Hinds Eerie your larger on your right so so There is something. I won't outlaw for you to share. That is not available online. That you Would BE WORTH. Why sharing so you can rebel share that as also also share you know something about epic transformation that you think could close off or condensation okay. Let's unpack right. I know I'm thinking for sharing that. He he's he's up everything I say. Do not do in an interview. I'm doing okay in terms of just closing epic transformation talking about focusing on you first making sure that you're observing yourself being president of who you are being mentally and physically coming up with that you know what's next the that is on that story of who you want to be and then you know you brought across in terms of taking action on. It's it's taking action. What doing so from a place of joy and not trying to force things because when you try to force things you put yourself back kind of us. Was THIS SEAN OFF. stress and so. It's IT'S DOING. It's taking steps on your action. Movements from a place of knowing that everything is possible. And from a place of joy and fulfillment and not falling back into. Just doing what you think you should be doing because everybody else is doing it but really finding your passion and knowing you can be working in a police off of Sean. I think one of the things that you want to see a ball online is just how much I surrender on an ongoing basis to achieve things that I want and what surrender looks like Hanukkah is letting go of things that don't serve you. I think part of that is not readily available when you look at. Somebody's picture are watched their videos. Read there by Your Cedar. Bios is how much they have to give up along the way and the I have truly lost friendships. I have lost passion projects or given up things that meant a lot to me that I was very attached to in this journey of being more connected to my authentic self and the soul that surrender component is so important for us to recognize that you can you can have. It's all what not all at the same time. And so being able to surrender lawyer self balance in which ever way it comes to. You is something that people may not readily see about me when they look at all of my different things on. Yeah epic Stacey Indeed Ethics and. I am grateful that I get to know you. I'm grateful that I know you story and see how it has changed you for the battle because win live and lemons. We can complain. How sorry to his or we can make a refreshing glass of lemonade and cookies and Belch. Yes so ever really inspired by store. I'm inspired by you. And what you continue to you know to achieve and one of the things I like about you to stacy is that because while we. We advocate for entrepreneurship. I'm a big entrepreneurship advocate and quitting your job to start and so on like the fact that you you are not everybody's one first of all not everybody's miserable in their jobs not everybody wants due to quit their full implemented starts a business and you've shown that you can do what you want balance and you can still be gainfully in you know employed and happily employed while you're doing undecided. Doing your side hosts loon the things that you WanNa do and still Find Joy in all of that so Kudos to you and for showing that there is in fact a different way you don't you don't have to decided to one or the other. You can actually do both if it serves you. Well then fine. I love what you talk about. Surrender to that you know. surrendered to the things. That don't serve you and because one of the things that we have to close Omega one one of the things that I think we struggle with is the ability to let go of things like you know we are so used to conflicts and this could be a whole another discussion on there. I mean who you are right but anyway so we're GONNA clue right here. Stacey down thank you so much for joining. I know that you have some giveaway.

During the third quarter of the match up between San Francisco and Kansas City planters nuts will be mourning the death of its one hundred four year old mascot the iconic connick nut in the run-up to Sunday's big game planters announced Mr peanuts demise with an ad on social media following traumatic nut mobile accident the monocle. Nicol wearing top headed nut chooses to fall to his death to save two friends actors. Wesley Snipes and Matt Walsh. I let go no no. You don't thought to it after the AD ran planters amended Mr Peanut social handle. Yes he had one of his own to read the estate of Mr Peanut but tongue-in-cheek campaign won Kudos from the industry press at age praised this quote from planters brand manager Samantha. Hess in this press release. It's with heavy hearts that we confirm Mr Peanut has passed away at one hundred. Four years old told you will be remembered as the legume always brought people together for nutty adventures. In a good time the Brandon Planted the idea that mourners could pay tribute with the the Hashtag. Rip Nut and pay tribute. They did as the campaign went viral in a single day. The nuts tragic accident had inspired fifteen thousand tweets at age reported the included hundreds of puns and additional publicity opportunities from a slew of other brands some also belonging to planters owner Kraft Heinz and others from competitors like Oreo owned by Mandalay international and snickers owned by Mars. They may have simply jumped on the bandwagon. But by the looks of the highly produced social media posts many may have been recruited by planters beforehand. Cutting move if true chucky cheese offered thoughts and pizzas Oscar. Meyer Wiener Kraft Heinz brand offered a twenty one gun salute. Budweiser poured too tall. When for the old nut and on and on and went kraft Heinz which has had its fair fair share of business? Woes is proving to be remarkably good at going viral sure. The planters campaign may spark some backlash at age remarks funeral. Even of a peanut could be frowned founded upon during the Super Bowl but this year's campaign is incredibly. Tame compared to craft hines provocative effort last year then it devised a steamy food porn atfer. It's line of devour frozen food and ran it on a real porn site. Now that went viral. Craft hines has struggled to compete with rivals like Mandalay in general mills over the last year sales and profits dropped as the SEC investigated suspect accounting practices and shoppers increasingly shunned processed foods kids in favor of fresh ones. The consumer packaged goods giant has had a hard time refreshing its portfolio of brands to keep up with changing tastes. All that prompted the Motley.

23: Have a Set of Daily Habits - Matt Heinz

"Welcome back to the daily sales tips podcast. I'm your host Scott Ingram. And today's tip comes from my friend. Matt Heinz Matt is the president of Heinz marketing and has been a truth thought leader in the sales and marketing space for over a decade. Now, he is basically a good idea machine. And here's the one he's got for us today. Hi, this is Matt Hines founder and president of Heinz marketing in this is my sales tip for today. You know, there's a lot of things I could cover. There's a lot of things that we do with our clients as well as things we do internally from a sales perspective. But the one thing that I think is accessible and important for everybody is to have a set of daily habits to have a disciplined approach to things you're doing on a daily basis. Sometimes it's a bunch of little things that add up to helping yourself create more predictable pipeline. I have what I call it. My daily do list. It's on my tasks list every day once I take it off of the tassels for the date automatically shows up on the next business day, and it's based on a checklist of things that I need to do every day to feed my network to end in defeat. My. Pipeline. I have a version of this is actually laminated that I take with me when I travel, but, you know, even if you just have it in your inbox or have it just as a piece of paper, I think reminding yourself of those little things those tactics those habits that help drive behavior. Help drivers alz is really important. So for example, on mine, you know, it's a reminder look at my calendar from yesterday, the meetings, the meetings, I had to make sure I've done follow up to make sure I've connected with people on Lincoln to make sure I've sent any. Thank you notes or whatever else you need to do. There's a reminder to look at a few different filtered reports for me in Salesforce in our marketing automation platform to look at you know, the accounts that were tracking to look for buying signals to look for any changes to look for, you know, behavior with our content that I can follow up with. We also have a series of filters in linked in that can tell us about particular trigger events, if someone in my first connections has changed jobs that could be a trigger event that could lead to some opportunity. So looking at that on a daily basis in knowing what my follow up processes is important that's all documented in my daily dualist if. You're listening to this. You'd like a copy of sample of what my daily Dula. So I'm happy to share it with you. Then we cannot make that available. Somehow sure the Scott can figure out how to do that. And we can put a link in to to doing that either put it up on slide share or whatnot. I guess the moral the story on that for me is that there's always room for strategic improvement thinking about like who are we targeting? How are we going after them? But, you know, the top one percents sales people will consistently tell you that their success is tied to consistence repeatable behavior. It's doing the little things as doing them every day. It's putting in the time and effort to do those things on regular repeatable predictable basis. So that's what I got this about Heinz from Heinz marketing, thanks so much for listening. Now, Matt sent me the PDF of his daily do list, and all you have to do to get. It is click on the link in your podcast player or go to daily sales dot tips forward slash twenty three. In addition to the link to the PDF, you'll find links to Hines marketing Matt's sales pipeline radio show as. As well as a couple of his favorite social profiles while you're there. I hope you'll answer the question. Do you have your own documented daily do or daily habits list? If you do I'd love it. If you share it. I'm gonna share mind so jump over and join the conversation at daily sales dot tips forward slash twenty three then come back tomorrow to hear about the three things that every sales professional needs to no end master from Richard. Helen.

We've got the worldwide senior manager of sales enablement tools in services. It is Eric Sponsor. We're GONNA talk today about sales. enablement enterprise at enterprise scale and Eric has been a real leader and a trailblazer in the sales enabled were so excited to have him on the show today Eric. Thanks so much for joining you talk a lot. I know in the winter we did a couple of weeks ago and I've heard talk about it elsewhere as the idea of having the right funnel for Your Business. Can you talk about what that means <hes>. I think you know a lot of people look you know you can you. Can you buy salesforce dot com and there's a bunch of final stages built right into there and you can read a lot of books and it'll tell you what your final should look like what. What does it mean to have the right funnel for Your Business? And how have you been able to implement that etc on the buyer's journey aspect of things there's been understanding the buyer's journey as it always starts with and building a sales process on top of it you really simplified way is is that they refer to step one and understanding that type of final that you think your people can manage so for example an oil tunnel is very very wide at the top and very very tiny at the bottom so there's clearly clearly a bottleneck at the bottom and and usually the steps at the bottom of the funnel our financial discussions legal discussion solution. Maybe even if you've got a stacked either on technology or there's a solution challenge there with regards to technology or or your or your product that you're selling so ultimately attention needs to go there to open up that bottleneck because you're not closing as much fun as you can do. It can't get come up bottom and if it's too wide on top you have way too many resources focused on way too many customers that you can't can't actually focus on getting them to the next stage so I think paying attention that is one step if you have that type of funnel. The other type of honor is just the tube there really is no leverage across the funnel that it just one big to whatever comes in the top usually goes out the bottom that is one hundred percent customer retention rate and is not a bad business to be in for the most part very predictable <hes> but definitely not growth and growth generated for the most part and then which what is really. An interesting is a very highly effective. Strategy is an upside down <hes> oil fun also it's very thin at the top <hes> you bet one or two or very few customers into the funnel but at the bottom it is an outpouring of revenue <hes> and it it just it so there's goodness badness to all these I think it's about understanding your business understanding what that looks like what the velocity through that tunnel looks like and what is the idea of Rossi of which company wants. What is the company culture looking for love it well? We got a lot more coming up after the break with Eric sponsor he runs worldwide sales enablement for citric Serena talk a little more about them the components that go into making sale they might great people process content tools and technology.

That's will take place so i am. Why is that why was that well. No one forgets gets that day and i thought there's a second day. It's only five months after four twenty is a funnier that's fun. I mean people on earth yeah. Well people like fun stuff but they don't forget the serious stuff. We have a guest yet one person and they said they're unavailable. So wait who have a guest one person. One person has said no. Thanks yours only inquired. Go to one person you got the no oh and then you stopped go to h. Pod dot com who was a it's. I don't wanna say on air okay. How do you feel you feel good. You feel uncomfortable yeah. No this is good my mom i'm ready. I'm ready you look. You look like you guys good night's sleep and stuff. You did yes i. Let's just go over. We've done a bunch of these <hes>. Let's just go over like the basic ground rules. This is not to be released. Obviously this is like a this is basically a screen test but for the podcasts we've put a bunch onto people in the like third host chair and done like try these how none of them really worked at who we <hes> brought in to has done this in the pace of you remember when craig ferguson replays craig kilborn. There was everyone kind of got to do a week. In the in the sea and surprisingly we reached in the exact same bag damien fahey was michael ian black dame fe it was d. l. the the usual suspects yeah yeah <hes> the skeleton the skeleton got to sit down and then they ultimately decided that yes he should be a part of the show bill no he shouldn't be the main one because he's scaring the shit out of people yeah orrin hatch did not they did not make the cut. They said no okay they ornie adams ornie adams also said no so they went through the whole process and then at the when it came time to like actually work out a deal they did turn down okay. Gotcha gotcha read a radha okay so basically what we do is really klausner. Yeah we have <hes> you know the third you sit in the chair. We do it just like a normal episode. Yeah <hes> we bring in will high end this year to be the guest. <hes> hello trial my fire tom. That's what it is and i like part of me wants to apologize for subjecting you to the most difficult uh-huh wicked will the nastiest man i've ever interacted when a you know they say about new york city if you can make it here you can make it anywhere anywhere <hes> well. If you can host a show will you could probably make a new york city or some sure sure well. I mean guys guys look. I'm not gonna pretend. I didn't hear any of that. I come to this home no coming to this with humility but i also do know no one thing on the best okay. It's humility is good because he will humiliate you. Okay you will bury you. The only question is how deep if we'll sniffs one shred of ego <hes> he hunts it down. He exposes it. He rips it on a you and holds it up for the whole world to see and then he like has sex with it in front of your friends. Should i pretend that i'm not in the studio. Let me just there's no pretending it's just telling we're just talking about the it's not even oh you've done so many of these and this is why why as being on the show in a long time because he's in here like a couple times a week doing these anybody's finished having sex with the piece of ego <hes> <hes> then he like 'cause like you want to go for a drive or something down the coast and he like puts the ego in the car with them and they just like go and just like talk they pull over over somewhere malibu and just kind of walk along the coast and just think about like what a crazy ride. It's been from having been inside of you. Getting sniffed left out getting found getting pulled up exposed held up getting had sex with like that sounds right before even like a real conversation the sex but then dan yes very like intimate romantic before you know it the sun's coming up and it's funny <hes> it's people describe you from the outside.

We play the song. We do a little fake like talk thing. I think it's fun tom. I'm looking forward to it. I think one of the biggest problem for you okay like the little fake talk thing we do.

I'm here and i'm just gonna say this in terms of getting buried. It's like <hes> it's it's like <hes> it's like <hes> <hes> kill bill kill bill no right which t._m.

Okay the ideas that were talking and then we'll do the show okay so it's just the energy is enough. Now did save hey for yet. Yeah i have the elements. I'm putting them in the wrong order exactly exactly that was stop request tools tools. Yes sorry but yeah we can do to move on the union thing so so good. It's me. Tom and i'm with matt. Leblanc and we are at a baseball card. Convention and matt is looking looking for the baseball card of his player from from ed. No actually that's that's all right. That's funny. Do you want the monkeys card no now he has those because he worked on the film though he was like one of the first is to get those things because they were props and he he's a big collector of memorabilia from the movies and shows his own movie just okay but in our story we were at a <hes> baseball card convention. He was looking for a billy ripken. Fuck face card where it's baseball card where billy ripken the legendary legendary lesser brother of <hes> of major league baseball <hes> ironman cal ripken <hes> he wrote on the heel of his bat <hes> fuck fuck face he wrote it on his own band and ended up in the photo on a baseball card and so matt really water man robert number tony junior cal ripken whose year iron man well. They're both dead to me so anyway. We're at the thing we're going from table to table and matt starring get very irritated because he's like he's like none. None of these people have the face card going to do here. And then i noticed over at the other side cal ripken is signing autographs like matt. That's his brother. Let's go see if he's got the inside track on. What did he keep from episodes of collectible memorabilia like what kind of stuff is matt hanging onto from episodes the scripts that got shot out of the sky pages of fell in the ocean. They shot the scripts yam profile for while paul. I love that theme. I was just play that one in the morning to get kind of pumped up but that's neither here nor there we go up to the table and and matt's like do you think he he knows who i am. I'm like matt. Everybody knows friends and he goes up to the table as cal ripken. It's not much of a line 'cause everybody this point everybody's got a cal ripken autograph who wants one and the show was not in baltimore so yeah goes up where was it was in <hes> corpus christi texas military yes while we were doing nothing for the u._s._o. We put on shows me and matt entered making fun of trips yeah well. We belittle title. The troops. Were kind of like we get the troops. Get them go. Everybody yeah we're the last people they see for the the troop ship out. Just get them and they're so irritated that they're just ready to like mo everyone down. Now you rile him up. Yeah that's smart so then we go to the table and it's like of course he knows friends and then he goes up and he goes how you doing and then cal ripken goes. What can i help you with chief and the chief was he did not think of him as a chief the way he said it would have a very pointed did edge to it. <hes> and i said my friend here <hes> wants to get his hands on your brother's a fuck face card and he said <hes> do i look look like billy ripken and he said well kind of a little bit of family resemblance and then <hes> then he said how you doing one again yeah. He's still trying. He's still trying it. Hey welcome hollywood handbook and insiders kicking dropping names and the red carpet line back hallways of this this industry we call. We'll we'll hines is here. What what up off on i will thank you for coming back to the show was that to go what is going on in your wife too much not too much. Just keep on keeping on. I think this what up thing thing needs to be cleared up. Though did i step on your thing. Fuck it. I thought it was given at like a little bit of like. Just keep going fucking. Your thing is what up what up come on. Let's like we can't guess okay okay. Okay okay now. Go now with me. You know just sort of <hes> just sort of enjoying. My time haven't happy days. No will urine improviser right correct. Yeah you teach improv yep. That's right. I do at the upright citizens brigade theater. What do you feel <hes>. Who do you think would be the greatest improviser in the world of politics anyone nobody <hes> well. That's bad because i think a few politicians could be pretty pretty good at it like for one. Mr ronald reagan what i need a first word last word for okay i word banana last words shod and freud okay. Where are we laundromat laundromat. That's what the what <hes> era when i teach i usually don't give this much. <hes> late eighties late eighties eighties laundromat when we get to the nandita schadenfreude okay. Anna hanna worked for him. I got up but it's more of a tick. This coin machine machine won't work. I gotta fill the dryer mister gorbachev. I need change for a five dollar. Bill shoddy freud wow pretty good yeah. I guess reagan would be. Maybe that proves me wrong. I guess where they would be was that somebody doing reagan or him. I'm doing okay. That's reagan. Ronald reagan was in a class that actually think that'd be very fine. I seen for somebody you know. That's what it was reagan doing that. In an improv class it wasn't reagan in a laundromat because ronald reagan flagging an improv class tied to do the exercise or some unknown student in an improv class. Impersonating ronald reagan a laundromat ronald reagan yeah kinda playing himself in an improv scene in a class we he was never told he wasn't isn't ronald reagan and i think that's a good assumption. I would say that would be a good scene for ron o'brien. You tell your improv students that you're not you with this. I don't normally have to most students. There's not we don't know a lot about them had celebrity students before have they played them. So who's the biggest name you've had will let see <hes> <hes> i said who's the biggest the biggest name that i've ever had <hes>. Do you know mr paul welch. He is a couple of lines and crazy ex girl. Oh yeah he's one of the brothers yeah. Oh yeah. He's an ear with podcast co host. He's proving the politicians can be good improvisers too right yep yeah yeah i had him. <hes> who else have i had <hes> i subbed a class that abby jacobson acheson was in as a student <hes> one of the city she was never my student which i subbed a class once <hes> mhm <hes> where she was a student what's the deal with that is that prearrange deserve a piece of paper people say hey. I'm not gonna be able to make the class who can fill in for me. Is it an email go around. That's how it happens. I said like three different things. Email goes around okay who can cover this and then you answer i can and then you do okay and then do. They usually right back. Thanks you want not just be like you've got it. Both confirm that you're doing it and do you kind of let if they don't say thanks wchs does that kind of like never harbor a grudge now with that. I have no emotional attachment to any part of this interaction okay. Hey <hes> demined to put a stop topper question yeah so <hes> this just at your wolf. We do a lotta like wordplay stuff. That's okay. It's top down <hes> so that's a union thing is well when will said that he subbed a class. There's an opportunity to talk about like subs dams and like type sex stuff and kind of get will the open yeah. That would be funny. Get some websites requests kind of file a uh request police during on it <hes> but yeah and then you can get in asking vs into some kinky shit and maybe try to get him the open up a little bit about some of his who peccadilloes and <hes> it's just a juicy thing that people get here on the pod commend like subway like sandwich artist. That's why they call it. And why do they call it an artist like that kind of stuff when you these notes on pretending. I don't hear them so that can be a good test subject. Okay thank you guys.

You're one of the remember my name. Oh please. Don't please don't degrade a grade me by asking me as you make sure of course <hes> name. Come on now. How you like this new. Ooh damn this get. It's me right in the scap basket and that is sweet a say frendo a in one of the many everyone who know about the risks of drunk driving because everyone does. I know as much as everyone else so you can get in the crash or people could get hurt or killed. Well let me you will blow your hair back. Mr mann with some pretty surprising statistics statistics almost twenty nine people in the united states die every day. Alcohol impaired vehicle crashes ooh that scott. It's really taken off alf the only thing i'd like to get drunk. God's is with scattered because one person every fifty minutes drunk driving haven't fatalities have fallen by a third in the last three decades but they still claim more than ten thousand lives each year. It can have a big impact on your wallet to to shell out for this expensive scaffold. Sh i am absolutely at the bottom of my bank account because i spent every last dime on this so we so we get you could get arrested and encourage huge legal doing expenses. You could possibly even lose your jobs. So what can you do to prevent drunk driving other than just stay home and groove on the scab. Yeah baby plant a safe ride home before you start drinking designated sober driver or call a taxi if someone you know has been drinking take their keys keys and arranged for them to get a sober rad home with the scat daddy who listens to nothing but skadden car. We all know the consequences of driving drunk but one thing for sure. You're you're wrong if you think it's no big deal drabs sober or get pulled hold on. This is my favorite part. It's cat diskettes sca- or get pulled over skin skits. Kids can't yeah so let's. I don't think we have to go all the way all the way back. Let's just do the song not other way back but you are doing the song we'll do the song but when i think we you have to like doing been doing it for a while. We do this to leave the room and come back in but we'll sit here all the way back but the song at the beginning of the show beginning yeah okay. I just want to point so it's not like all just like notes. I noticed the second time you told the rick and story the like. Do you want me to in your bat line from cal ripken fell out. I think that was great. It made no said cut. The first time was the cut did not like it. The the first time there was no no sense that he had a bat initially looking for a baseball card. Oh yeah. I didn't know what the fuck you were talking about when you said at the first time and the fact that it wasn't there. I didn't didn't even miss it. Hey thanks for pointing that comes from <hes> writing stuff the there's always the phrase kill children and row yeah. I don't know if people say that way or make that face when they say but i do think there is a variation on that that's popular because a cat gets in the tree and then you kill a child then you're at the premiere. That's what i've always heard okay and so. Let's just get the idea of subbing in for an improv class as soon as possible but this next version. I got the reagan thing i though i think we can. We can do that get to that really fast. Maybe different suggestion politician addition going good. Luck can hit it man. Do it started over again place to be. It's got to come clean this time. You can just do it so oh it's me and matt leblanc <hes> and we are at a baseball card convention and corpus christi texas could and because we're doing a u._s._o. Shows where we rile the troops up to get them really met so they kill non-americans and we're at this show and matt. It really wants to get his mitts. No pun intended on a billy ripken fuck face card legendary <hes> misprint of a baseball card that had the word word fuck face written on the heel of his bat wrote the show or going from table to table. We can't come up with one and then i noticed that cal ripken the brother of billy ripken ripken is what god wasn't a misprint. Just what's that the photo with profanity in it but it wasn't a misprinted painted in the scheme of that. It should not have happened. It was a misprint that the uh we start over. Stop running out of those two. We're gonna go over yeah. Prince more later where's kevin today should be printer yeah and who knew he had so much money kevin. That's the other thing that has been big and like like since we found that out. He has really haven't avenues not here. Show yeah. It's weird. I we ride the same bus line but he owns it yeah. He owns the secret shopper robert undercover boss on that bus. Put on a bus but you get this bus line stuff. That's juicy you see now. You know something about well. Yes that's rare that we ever get to that in one of these tests given let's go. Have you ever done no no. We're jumping the line. I understand why you're excited but we do have to do. That's a great great question though just tell the story really quick. Do i talk during this ever. I i don't talk to the guess talk during these ever they do only when they don't know what the fuck is really huge famous to like make make your show bump up and bureaus or whatever then they talk and we just don't even know who you guys are but i just can. I just ask though you're trying to get in my head by saying that because you know the the answer to that i'm chilling just chilling and griffin. Let's go so it's me and it's matt leblanc and we're at a baseball card convention. We're looking for billy ripken fuck face race card and then we can't find one and i noticed cal ripken is signing autographs across a room. Joey matt leblanc who plays joey says. Do you think you'll know who i am. I'm like of course everybody knows. It was joey. Everybody knows friends. We go up to the table in g goes how you doing and then man cal ripken is what can i do for a chief and it was a very <hes> kind of prickly edge to it and and i said well my friend molly blonde hair is looking for a for a a card <hes> the the billy ripken cardi brothers. Do i look like billy ripken and then i say well a little bit and then matt leblanc owes. An cal ripken looks at matt closer. He goes wait. Aren't you matt leblanc from episodes and then he he reaches into his pocket and pulls out billy ripken card and then matt says thank you so much and then <hes> cal says oh one other thing and he he says what he says <hes> care tucson my bat. Hey there's always this industry. Will hi go ahead. Thank you for being on the show. What's happening in your life these days not a lot. Can we not do a full re buca. Can we just set this this. What if what if things really bueno. I stepped on you with that. I said i'm not gonna say i taught can set it. I know i feel like you did not mean that. I feel like i feel like you're just i feel like it's very passive aggressive. Okay it's it's not can we try one where you say it then. Don't feel that way. <hes> it's hollywood handbook insider's guide to the ways. Ah what up what up well hind hey i have you been doing a lot of stuff lately not really yeah no now. We'll i've heard you take the bus a fair amount in los angeles. That's right i do and i've also heard that you are an improv teacher. I both things true yeah. I'll take the bus to where i teach him a lot of times. Have you ever taught improv on the bus. No that would be unwanted okay now. If it's a very political world we live in. Everybody's talking about politics all the time and it's gonna be true okay. Some people are talking about politics. That's is true when you think about a politician will do you feel about politics silver. I get the less faith. I have in the whole system. I don't think intimate it's okay if you if you were to think about politics okay. Do you feel that any politician would be a great improviser adviser. I do not you do not well. What if i was to show you how a politician could be a great improviser and like to see that so mr richard mille house nixon the in the president president as three separate doesn't president of the united states say he was in your improv class and can also us as a sidebar any famous. <hes> people come through the improv classes. I think it went was a guy in s._n._l. For one year i think his name was like john on pinski or something like that he was. I taught him improv one on one and was he was he just in case he's ever get it cleans on on ridden ridden. It's key 'cause i was going to say and don't say i did think of one because that unempl- right yes yes. I did have a famous person in my imp 'request john radinsky wow when he was a teenager new jersey. He took an improv one-to-one class from me years and years ago sure and then i should up s._n._l. So now like almost ten years later was renske of budzynski with the improv. Not really i learned to not do the talking over.

You probably got your fucking rocks off on that one. I don't follow follow. What are you talking about. I don't know what you're talking about sex but why why are you talking about sex. I don't get it so oh yeah yeah submission share you get into a sandwich artist. Okay so you go to subway right. You ever wonder if they have like a subway. Don't go there so jared was all about <hes>. I don't go the subway. Maybe that's why maybe he was. Maybe that's what he meant. Sub way. There's not a ton of the middle and go to subway that often. Uh-huh neil is ass on that. That's out here dude. I don't where where where are they on sunset boulevard where this beverly vermont so. I ended bradbury building. There's not one of modern sunset well. There is one very close to their. I guess it's not at sunset. I guess it's more up towards hollywood minute flyover yeah man tom. This is where you can actually actually can sink them. Yes west council. It's closed but this is supposed to be your city. True or false supposed to be your true well <hes> drain. You'd feel like somebody would have the the lay of land down a little bit in terms of the type of things that regular people eat not the stuff of you eat. When you're at your restaurant what's a good recipe place that he'd ah smog when you're at spago and you're with your friends with your there with jason man's zukas and you're talking talking all about improv and the rest of us are at subway and fifty one hollywood boulevard seven fifty vine street fifty-five thirty-seven sunset sixty one fifteenth santa monica boulevard ten eighteen north vermont avenue well <hes>. Let's see what the cross street is there so let's look at that one and see what the cross street is. How did you say vermont sunset. He said ten eighteen. We don't know what that's one of the biggest ones vermont until and unless it closed <hes> well can we can we can stop should do assault right before sean started naming. The subway addresses marker cut the episode. They're just cut that part yeah okay. I don't know if we stuck the <hes> the nail on the coffin on will no no. I was about to and then sean started doing his. Thanks okay. He was helping you attling addresses. This more like a pause request. Stop request well. I just want to be the one to say those actually can you can you hear me your phone now. Vermont santa monica. I mean so fucking close start reclining two avenues away vermont fountain and then santa monica two avenues to whole vermont sunset and you know there's a subway vermont santa monica. You'd never go there. You'll be like forget it. Bullshit yeah you. No you have to is i do even daryl hannah in kill bill one. I would be able to see the subways all over over los angeles and when they when she popped that i out that other one i went i was the joke folk to junk was saying. We knew that i should say for that. I could more subways than i realized. I'm sorry about that. I i don't tend to go to them but there's certainly a lot of opportunities to get your life is so with your food choices. You clearly do not participate in subway. That's when it's time time for the old <hes> boudoir. I guess you do participate in the sub way nine fire question so why is it taking so long. Is it like playing. It's like a silent padding at the end along you live in the file play out even if had silent where's the video that he watches a big part of it for devon seeing the result of the whip crack so there that's true or false false. I've engaged in that sort of activity in the veteran. I'm pretty vanilla dude. <hes> what's i mean <hes> plane like my sexual preferences. Ice cream had nice. No no no just just a little devon laughing but it was you guys having sex with ice cream. Speaking of devon kind of sounds like yvonne doesn't doesn't it so that like i do feel like a lot of my but the things that i've said off air fare you have them ended up doing going on what will end up being like the assembled version of the show i did. The devon thing was yes. It was i did the observation that matt leblanc was in ad head and then in a version that i think is probably going to make the final one we ended up having to releases people will think that was their man do yourself.

We're like sean and i were like like at fighting with each other this thing that we do we pretend to be jealous of each other like who's doing each other's bits or whatever and you did a great job of like getting in in the middle and putting it back together. That was great sure <hes> the dog was a catastrophe. Well okay well then. Help me with it then please. It was a nightmare then helped me shape the voice right now. Okay ooh. What should i say.

I will say you <hes> <hes> sort of defeated will to such a degree that i don't know if we can use him again. Oh wow you've done a lot says. I've just been used up. I have a question okay. You know we have the sake funny bit. That's just a joke of how one of the bad guests and how like when i come on on the show is bad and like this is a big joke amongst us in a funny thing that we say to the song yes sodas. We'll read. Commentators are pretty quick to use it. Whenever brian make any appearance on any ear with show and then some people read it and don't know not totally fake joke and then actually one of the most a huge cat huge. How many live shows i'm featured on for the year. We'll stuff and you know just how often quoted and like how whenever there's a best of poll. The fans can't start data voting for me so far out and just do a million things. You know what i mean like. Gaber says a second gabor's end lap. Guests are after you can't get will hunts. You know that's mhm. Was this episode so bad that people are going to believe that that bit is true that was i so have. I made that a true bit now. Oh well. I'll say this yes okay. That's what i wanted to know. Thank you well. I can say as somebody who's been on the show more than any other gas yes in the history of hollywood handbook <hes> by off how many times you've been are. I can't even count that high. <hes> you get to a certain point where it's rare rare and you just feel like you belong and that's when the fans feel so comfortable with you they they constantly referred to you as an unfunny asshole. Can i just say that. I appreciate and i appreciate your advice and your wisdom on this. What was the phrase they use to describe you unfunny asshole. I think i think we will end up doing another one of these. That's where i'm at sean yeah. I mean this is inconclusive. I just don't even know what like just so we have something to do. I think is what you mean. Yes yes by hey. This is row will just just a quick disclaimer before you listen to this next ad that we have lined up for you. <hes> unfortunately our scoutmaster has been replaced because of some very unfortunate circumstances so the smooth sexy scat. You're used to hearing underneath our wonderful ads has been replaced by by well. You'll see skits. Gatt skits skits gatt skits skits cat skid scott skit skit scare <hes> hey hero gets cassettes cassettes gets real shave about the the last scott. We has truly depressing. She went to jail for driving stone but that is something you can go to jail for well. You put yourself and others in danger just like i'm in danger of having to keep listening to the scat unless we get through the ad quicker and a d._u._i. Covers more than just alcohol drugs that make you you feel different yup yup if you've been using marijuana how in any form behind the wheel that is not a scam bads feel different.
