Trump commutes Roger Stone's sentence
"Trump has commuted the sentence of one of his longtime friends. KCBS is Jennifer Hodges tells us Roger Stone was just days away from reporting to a federal prison to serve his time. The president has commuted the sentences of just 10 people, and in this case, Roger Stone said, basically after he was convicted. Oh, I could have testified against the president, but I didn't So I should be pardoned, indicating that he had information about the president that he knew would be damaging. Rory Little, is a professor at UC Hastings College of the Law. Stone was convicted of seven felonies, including lying to federal investigators, but the president said the Russian investigation was baseless. And without that stone wouldn't be facing any thing at all.
U.S. Unemployment Rate Fell to 11.1% in June
"Report, released this week went beyond expectations, with the unemployment rate falling to just above 11%. But not everyone gets to see that silver lining for more case. CBS's Jennifer Hodges spoke with George No. Chetty. Morgan Stanley Financial adviser. Did these numbers mean that the economy is Ah, I guess you could say, roaring back or now. Well 4.8 million jobs reported is an historic record. We have never had that much job growth in one moment and the part of month we're up over two million, so you take the two months together, and it looks like a V shaped recovery. Very quick Recession. And a very quick uptick even though we're not there yet we are increasing and adding ah, number of jobs. But the unemployment rate, which is interesting, also has fallen to about 11%. That's really good, down from about 19%. However, the recovery has really been uneven, especially for people of color it's been and even the white unemployment rate is about 10% and the black unemployment rate is 15% so we still have a big big disparity. I'm really high unemployment in the areas of people of color. Who else has affected in terms of those differences like you mentioned as faras that not being even across the board anyone else that's or any sector if you will, That's kind of unusually still hit hard. The first group that's really been hit by this are the hourly workers and people with lower pay. Those are the ones that have been first in this in this recession. And so they have really struggled the most. But if you look at sectors if you look restaurants And hospitality That's been the largest hit and so in this job's report, they're the ones that have come back first to some extent, about 740,000 new jobs created on the retail side. Education and health services have added about 568,000 last month Manufacturing, which is good added about 365,000 but we still have a lot of people that are on unemployment. But if the jobs keep kicking up, that'll be good. Now the only thing that will hurt us in terms of adding more people to the job roles will be covert 19. That's really the wild card here. If the numbers keep increasing That will double delay consumer confidence people getting out there wanting to shop money to buy things more people will will not get jobs because of that, so we really have to manage covert 19. And make sure that we're you know, we're in a mask, washing her hands and distancing ourselves so that we could get people back to work and get the economy going. I can't remember George, where I read it yesterday, But I read a piece yesterday talking about unemployment, and they were saying that Ah Things were starting to improve, but that more and more people are losing jobs permanently like so a lot of furloughed people are finding that they're going back. But there are quite a few people that are losing their jobs permanently. That's true in a post Kobe 19 environment, Uh, work is different jobs as we know that are really changing right now and so. Some of the jobs Aaron transition there reinventing themselves. Um, but more people are coming back to work and jobs will change and that'll create other opportunities as we go forward. But right now, after jobs fell off a cliff in the middle of February, we're seeing a big uptick in jobs being created. So that's all good. But this recession will take time We're looking at. Probably not until 2021 that we start to see employment numbers, you know, really, really come down not to where they were. Probably in the 56% range down from the 11% right now. That's George No Chetty. Morgan Stanley Financial Advisor, a

Police unions dig in as calls for reform grow
"States across the US are in their second straight week of protests over the killing of George Floyd by a police officer many hope to see police reform they have reached a current though and that's often the police unions to talk about the role of police unions and the power they hold over reforms we have Booker Hodges assistant commissioner at the Minnesota department of public safety and let's bring it round the lord a police union labor negotiator former police officer and the former president of a state wide police union in Texas run thank you so much for joining us well thanks for having me we're getting a lot of comments from the moment given example one listener tweets it seems all other unions are under attack but police unions only gets stronger what accounts for this and then Richard tweets the left is finally realizing public unions make it very difficult to remove crappy employees teacher police if you suck at your job you've got to find another job these these questions Rauner kind of centered around what makes police unions different I think and could you answer that for us to can we look back to the history of police used to get the answer well sure and I think the I always call it kind of the duck billed platypus of unions they're in a union but they don't look like other unions and there's a big reason for that because of the nineteen nineteen Boston police strike it pretty much wiped out unionization in America until really into the nineteen sixties they do said paternal so ninety eighty five ninety percent of all the police United States do not belong to the AFL-CIO they have one chartered union and it's a it's a small percentage so the police were late getting into the labor firefighters had an international in nineteen eighty S. all the public employee unions construction units you know that some of those are a hundred years old so police were late to the game they were used in many times as strike breakers and picket lines and so they didn't gravitate in there tend to be conservative by nature so their unions look different but they're still just working people their blue collar working people who form the groups who have become adept at using the American political system to increase our wages and pay in for job security so I'm not ashamed to be in a policeman or representing the police they can only do in a increase their strength or get their message out it's all illegitimate nature so different than people that are anti gun and pro gun you know free speech no free speech in America everyone has a right to speak out on things so well of concern to their members we got this tweet Booker from Tracey Wheeler and she mentions what Ron just said about the fraternal order of police Tracy says the police union's name the fraternal order of police is symbolic of the fact that it operates like an old boys club officers who speak up about bad cop behavior are ostracized in this culture and I want to put this book or in the context of what we heard earlier from you lie at the the Marshall project who was saying that often times African American cops don't want to join leadership because they don't want to be part of that culture yes so yeah I think there's there are some differences between African American officers on what offices regarding union membership I mean mia love the vast majority of my career I was in the union I was a union president you know so I didn't have some of those issues but a lot of the other people I know who are in other organizations did have issues regarding how that they didn't feel that the union represented them or didn't defend them as strongly as they did white officer so I I I'm fully aware that that issue does exist within the labor unions run it sounds like you wanted to respond to that as well well that issue exist in America so you could say I'm a seventy two year old white man who grew up in the south where our view the world may be different than a black person my age who grew up different but men and women officers have different views about things Hispanic officers have different views are Asian awesome so that's in it in and of itself but you have to say policing in America is eighty five percent means there's been no woman firefighter president that I'm aware of any part of union in America ever so so we look at it and then we say yes but they appear to be older white men yes but there haven't democratic elections welcome back officers in America only about twelve percent of the police no less maybe nineteen so that's wrong but the pollution is not hurting anybody the city hires the city provides room recruitment in six cities were even worse off when it comes to female officers their lesson about twelve percent of the police which is half the number of Canada Australia and other European countries so thank you in that profession is eighty five percent median and whatever sixty seventy percent white means that white men tend to gravitate up yes but lots of officers don't become involved in the

Who Is Strong?
"Just about everybody had one. Strong's exhaustive concordance of the Bible. Seem like you have a Bible and somewhere next to it. You would have strong's concordance. It was first published in eighteen ninety. It contains a numbering system for Hebrew and Greek words. And it has eight thousand, six, hundred, seventy four, Hebrew roots that are numbered and five thousand, five, hundred, twenty three Greek roots that are numbered. This is massive this work, this exhaustive concordance, showing where every word in the Bible could be found with its book, Chapter and verse. It is massive in this before computers before software programs, and before search engines, which means this work was all done by hand well, this same strong also served as editor of the massive ten volume. Cyclo Pedia a Biblical theological and ecclesiastical literature. It was published from eighteen, sixty seven through eighteen, eighty one. And if that's not enough this same strong, finally worked on a committee that produced the American Standard version of the Bible for thirty years. This committee labored from eighteen seventy one until the SV was published in nineteen o one. Charles Hodge was one of those editors Pantheon of scholars of the day one hundred and one editors all worked on the American Standard version, and one of those one hundred and one was the strong. So, who is he well? He is James Strong. He was born in New York City on August, fourteenth, eighteen, twenty, two. He died in New York in eighteen ninety four. He wanted to be a doctor when he was young, but he went off to Wesleyan University in Middletown Connecticut and there he studied Biblical languages among other things he was really layman, and he had a fascinating career. He organized a railroad company, and then built the flushing railroad in the eighteen fifties. It was later incorporated in his actually part of the the railroad subway system of the New York road today. He also served as a mayor of his hometown on Long Island. He taught for a while in Vermont. But his main career was at drew theological seminary, and there he was for twenty five years just prior to going to drew, he was the acting president of Troy University, and sometime in the eighteen fifties, he published an article that the Methodist Church should establish a seminary and the new. York vicinity to train ministers for the Gospel. He was mocked for that article. There were many who thought that you shouldn't train ministers that God just hand picked them, so they should be God trained, not man trained, but strong persistent, and he was soon joined by others and drew theological seminary opened. He was part of what was called the strong five who were among those five who started the seminary. The early president of the seminary was James mclintock. He knew strong back from their days when they were working on that ten volumes cyclope. That massive edited work that strong also served on so the two of them together set off with some other faculty to establish drew. One of his colleagues at drew, said this of James Strong. At night in the library, he worked like a plow horse, but in the lecture room he was a Colt. No one ever went to sleep in his class unless he wasn't bad. Health or an embassy saw well. That's what they thought of James Strong. He spent thirty five years working on the strong's exhaustive concordance. It was published in eighteen ninety. It became a standard text, and as I said just about everybody had a copy of strong's concordance. Well, that's who strong was and I'm Steve Nichols the thanks for joining us for five minutes in Church history.
Attacks on journalists covering George Floyd protests mount
"But with all the confusion on the streets not to mention the violence it is not a great time to be a reporter covering a protest KCBS Jennifer Hodges says in some cases the media is being targeted from both sides the wrongful arrest of a CNN crew a reporter purposely targeted with rubber bullets do journalists need to start hiding who they are out on the scene I do think that there are journalists who have that instinct how to blend in with the crowd but I think certainly in the in the training that we provide for journalists we we instruct them to identify themselves clearly a Katie Townsend is the legal director for the reporters committee for freedom of the press I think it's really important for journalists when are covering protests to respond to the situation around them and to have a lot of situational awareness obviously personal safety is something that is very important and and I think they could bury our dead or how which are listed responded given situation Townsend says journalists have a first amendment right to cover
"hodges" Discussed on Turn Me On
"Day Tuesday everyday's Tuesday every Friday. I it's just all fucking mess. Idler Blurs Blurs Blurs Day. I like that and we're back with our friend Nicole Nicole. Hodges what's up? Yeah Hi I'm back although we're not together this time but that makes sense because we're responsible that's that is great. Last time we spoke to you for so for listeners that that may have missed it we did. We did a live show in Toronto. And and I. I don't remember much. Yeah you don't remember much. You're so drunk I drank. Yes whiskey or something you and it was like. Three quarters of the bottle has gone while we were when we were fifteen minutes into the recording. Look I'll tell you I tell you I I I I mean I still to this day. I think I've made it very very obvious the biggest crush on you Nicole and and when we discovered that live show I was so nervous that I just got fucking wasted and then and then and then yeah so that's that was just my life that night but but what. I do what I do. Remember from that night was that it was it was gone. Records be corrected. I remember it was. It was a fucking it was a great recording is a great time. We all had fun but the thing that made it really exciting was it was the we had talked about. We had talked about. Oh the places you'll go. Which was the the Dr? Seuss inspired a book that you were in the midst of like putting together That is all about like sexuality and Sexuality for people and pleasure for for mostly for people with vaginas People who Volvos and and at that time the book was just kind of like you know it was. It was still in the works. Yeah it was just a page and one page with the PTERODACTYL on it. That's that's that's right and we read. We read that one page and I tried to. I tried to yet. That's right. Yeah it's all coming back to me now bears ing but fast forward to today and I'm holding this book and my fucking hands are now. Yeah me too. Isn't this crazy? It's it's weird to touch it. It's weird to you. Did y'all something that's out of my brain now in my hands and it exists. It's Real. It is different to have created something. That's like physical as you say than it is to create. Say like girls who say fuck or at this thing that exists in a space. Yeah like the cereal. I like the actual like hard. Good it it it does. It does feel different because you know what it is. It's actually it's an anchor now so all of these things I already talked about. Feel like they finally have a reference point That people can actually see and touch and that this is. This is kind of a way for them to be a part of it as well so when. I talk about all these things. Like advocating for a world with more pleasure unless shame and this whole idea of trying to rebrand virginity to sexual debut and talking about these kind of like neander journey of Sexuality. How it's never it's never the end. It's never too late. You constantly discover yourself. I talk about those things. Their words that I can then come back to the book and Split Point Specific Pages and then somebody can actually go and purchase this and it can be in their house and sitting on the coffee table or on their bookshelf. And that will then perpetuate conversations and their lives with people who will then see it and be able to hold it and it's small enough that you can read it quickly so where my words can't reach everywhere this book might instigate conversations because someone might just come across it because it's something that exists in the woman as a as a heart good so. I think that's the difference so for the for the people that didn't actually listen to that episode and they're hearing you for the first time now. What is your book like? What is what is this thing that you've created. Oh the places you'll go. Yeah so I think a pretty good job of explaining it. It's A. It's a full illustrated book written in Dr Seuss verse called. Oh the places you'll go. And the mission. Essentially is to advocate for a world with more pleasure unless shame. I do believe that one of the biggest barriers besides pain to experiencing true transcendent orgasmic bliss. Not just through sexual encounters but in through life in general is denying ourselves. What we find pleasurable. And you know it. It took two years for me to write this book. I had the idea while I was in the midst of an orgasm and it felt like I had reached up into this place and this idea was waiting for me and I just grabbed it and brought it back down and then spent the next two years of my life going on my own journey that I essentially distilled down to this book in so it's encouraging people to expand the scope of sex or sexuality beyond just penetration. It's it's truly looking at how we can live in orgasmic life which yeah I think. Pleasure pleasure pleasures away again. Like I don't know I'm I'm fascinated by the conversations that have come up in one of the things that people ask is how. Who's this for? Like what ages at four and I've had MOMS reach out and say that they read it to their their twelve year old daughters And even younger than that. I've had videos sent to me of of little girls just holding it and pointing at the photos. But they're seeing their seeing these girls in power and whether or not they understand the words. They're still enough imagery in here that I hope that they're at least gaining something And I firmly believe that laughter is like smoke that can seep under the doors of closed minds. It's unintimidated. Yeah I love that. What do you think in kind of all your conversations and your preparation for ending up exactly who you are right now? What kind of what do you? What kind of conversations have you had about? Why why we deny pleasure or like why like sometimes very you know evolved people who like they know this stuff like we know here at like. Turn me on podcasts. That were sex positive and pleasures important and Blah Blah Blah. But that doesn't stop me from getting hung up in my bullshit about like no. I can't do that right now or I want that. I can't have it or like wanting to have a life. That's more in touch with pleasure like I want that. So what like? What are the sort of themes were lake underlying beliefs that might be limiting us from embracing more? I think there's two things that I've come across predominantly and over the last month I've interviewed women about Pleasure as a form of self care and I think. That's an important reframing of this idea of of masturbation where it's it's a time waster or that requires somebody else to kind of like the E. It's still a like a A. It's still a self serving mind like why would you touch yourself? If somebody else can do it. Or why would you set aside the time to to be alone and detach yourself into bring yourself pleasure but I come back to the fact that the pivotal moment of my life in this journey was going and looking at my at my pussy in the mirror and I cried. I think I think I I talked about this last time we were. We were all together but I realized that I had done that. And that simple act of gazing at myself lovingly without judgment transformed how I felt about myself as a being moving through the world and changed how I wanted to be looked at by others so I think I think prioritizing self pleasure and looking at it as a form of our self care routines is really important. Getting in touch with yourself. I think the best accessory sex toy we have is a mayor and I think that like instigating that connection that conversation with yourself is also a good way to turn on your intuition. I think the other barrier to why we don't experience pleasure or maybe fulfill our desires. Go after exactly what we want to. Who we are is shame and I talk about that in the book I named something called the shaming place full of people shaming and some of the things I list shaming for the clothes. You wear. Grow your body here. What's between your legs saying you'll run out of eggs shaming the things you've tried ignoring. Why shaving things they see a San for all the lovers you've lead in like shaming what you think is hot everyone's shaming they shamed quite a lot shaming because they're scared of sex shaming because they hate their ex shaping because they can't admit that on your face they like to set or shaming what their parents did. But you don't have to take it kid. It's like all of these things are forms of shame. And they're so insidious and some of them are so minor in some of them are passed down through generations where our parents teach us things that they don't even realize that they're doing that. Were that imposed with shame. Or some of the shameless self inflicted. I Fifteen I. I looked at my mother and I. She was an angry mercurial woman who seems so unhappy and I said if I do everything the opposite of you I'll be okay and for me. That meant cutting out my pleasure because for me expressing as a sexual woman felt like I'd be losing control and women aren't supposed to lose control I wish you always talked in rhyme. That would be a really quirky thing. It would be so fucking crazy a valuable life pursuit. Actually if if that's just the clown that you presented as the word sorry sorry you went on like such a beautiful rant there and then I and then I just like and then I said something so stupid but coming back to you coming back to like how pivotal will pivotal of a moment. It was for you to like look at your own vagina. Look at your involve a in a mirror and like how they gonNa Change Your Life. There was a one of the things that came. So we received a copy of your book because we back to you on on kickstarter and successful kickstarter and congratulations. That's exciting double raise. Double over. Goal is seven raised between kickstarter. Some private donations just over fourteen. Which is fucking so exciting resume using and one of my you know obviously very stick to get the book but along with the book there was a bunch of other like goodies in the in the package and one of those things was this this huge but like amazing sticker. That is just like it is the long. It's like the female anatomy. It's like a couple of hands like spreading the lips of a of a Volva and gives you like the diagram of like all the little anatomical names for what encompasses that area and I was like so stoked about the sticker. I haven't I haven't stuck it day dating mostly because I also feel like I want to the mailbox. Yeah I was like maybe this is sticker. Isn't for me to put on my laptop. Maybe I'll just maybe maybe bribing needs to fight to put this. But is this like. Was this a part of. Is this sticker like a part of that like where did you? Where did you get this? Where did you come up with the the idea to send this out as well? Does that going to speak to that moment that you saw yourself in mirror for the first time and sort of so. Nicky pack designed that for me. Her instagram handle is Boehner Candy. Sixty-nine and it's funny because when I decide to set out on this journey of becoming I asked the universe to bring people into my life that would that would help me with that process or be able to adequately allow me to express it and came across her. Instagram was incredibly uncomfortable with the illustrations. I found they were too Raunchy and I kind of recoiled from it and I- I resisted it and I I asked myself why so instead of instead of going on the Opposite Direction. I leaned out to her and I was like. Hey we should work together on something. I don't know what yet but I'm going to want your help eventually was like absolutely and then the orgasm book came. And when I host the party in Vancouver after Kovic left's she'll be part of that as well selling her art but her Raunchy way of being able to show. The female.

Probably GonNa Start with a ninety eight Eastern Conference Finals Course Bowls Pacers Jalen. You're there how do you remember feeling about your team's chances headed into that series against Chicago? So the unique thing about an athlete is that you have to have something that I call a rational confidence. I've sat in the locker room multiple days of my life and said that I was better than Michael Jordan. Kobe Bryant Shaquille O'Neal. Tim Duncan none of them could guard me. None of them had a chance. That's what you have to tell yourself or you might as well not put on shorts and the shoes and you know that you're the underdog and you're going against all time greatness so for us. We wanted to end the height. We wanted to shut up. All of the Jordan stands so on the floor. It was like we about the eliminate Mike in not have him. You know have two three peats but not on watching the doubt. I'm like how we let this do laying on the couch with potbelly drinking every night. Smoke CIGARS BEAT US. That's what I'm thinking. We should have beaten down more. May Be more bad news team like you're seeing that year. Your coach by Larry Bird who obviously knew Jordan very well from his playing days. What did he tell you guys about how to defend on him? Both you know one on one and as a team. What would he told me? Because I was coming off the bench I was a young pup. I had the plate. Percentages is that I'm GonNa put you on twenty three scorn you twice. I'm taking you out. That was instruction. And so I'm like all right cool I'm GonNa just follow him. I'm just thinking in my so I can stay in the game but he didn't want him to get into a rhythm is like soon he gets on away and if he gets into
Coronavirus: Online students face full tuition fees
"There's a lot of frustration for high school seniors as they debate next steps for college during the pandemic KCBS Jennifer Hodges says some colleges are still requiring full tuition despite moving to online learning Kelly Kedia senior at Los Gatos high school was accepted at NYU for the fall but was disheartened to learn the university will be all online at full cost they're pretty much committing to charging full tuition for online school so for private school like and why you would be like twenty seven thousand dollars for a semester online classes one of the main issues is that many of the private colleges are not letting students differ classes until the spring Kelly's father Peter kiedy I as a parent I'm not willing to pay for it if it's gonna be online there's just it's not worth the same value I'm sorry it's just not the same value in many cases students say they're willing to take a gap year Kelly says that might be a possibility for
International Fighter Competitions
"We're here to talk about. International fighter competitions and went to a presentation by till group analysts. Richard Lafia way back in January. Seems like another time but he talked about how this year in particular when it comes to aviation across all sectors. The fighter market is the hottest one going Tony. You recently wrote in Aviation Week of how the German fighter competition which is extraordinarily interesting right now and getting complicated by the industrial base implosion caused by Kovin. Why don't you tee up? The situation. What Germany has seemingly decided where that might be headed hodge of high listeners? I Yeah No. It's really a intriguing situation. So the whole German watch procurement has been complicated by its continuing interest in providing deterrence capability. Tonight so couple of years ago Jim. Nfl's chief said we won't buy the F. Eddie five the French came on and said if you pursue a thirty five by we're going to kick you out the future Combat Air System so the Germans are sort of panicked. They got rid of the thirty five out the shortlist and then basically cut their list down to Eurofighter and the F eighteen Super Hornet and then last week the German Defence Minister. A K K issues known announced that she was proposing a by. All of Typhoon Eurofighters call him in Germany and the Super Hornet and several growlers principle being that the Super Hornets provide that jewell capable aircraft. That would drop the Nuke Eurofighters would do the rest of the work to replace the Tornado. Tornado is currently the only European aircraft a European built aircraft. That can drop the be sixty one this the jewel weapon that's in several NATO bases across Europe so Jimmy wants to replace the Tornado. We've both the Super Hornet and the Eurofighter. But it's created a political storm. There's now talk about Germany's future as a nuclear deterrent nation. And this is sort of push to try and make this decision will push this decision making for this at back into tour. Twenty twenty two twenty twenty three. So it's a it's a bit of a mess for Jimmy. Which way do you think it's going to go? Do you think they'll stay on their current track or will the German government be swayed by Airbus's argument that its industrial base will be irreparably harmed by the purchase of American fighters of US would not particularly impressed? They call this a compromise to fall on it. Would irreparably damage the gym. Defense Industry Knife propose a compromise deal where all the typhoons would be contracted this year. The only way they feel that they can go on I think given how controversial the Super Hornet buyers and ongoing participation in the NATO deterrent. I think it's going to be a real difficult issue for the next election. I think it'd be a real discussion point for Germany country. That doesn't really like spending on. New Equipment is hard see. Also the Super Hornet being a effective deterrents carrying platform in the twenties thirties and forties. When when it will be in service I think a lot of nations will be questioning. Germany's judy to this mission. In the coming is Steve. Did you have something to add to that? While it just like. Tony said a couple years ago that move by France and Airbus really to exclude the F. Thirty five from this competition. I mean that's that's really where this comes in. Because the F thirty five is being primed as the US and European dual-capable capable aircraft in the US has started the integration process for the B. Sixty one Dash twelve the latest version with the improved tail kit with improve navigation and guidance for this nuclear bomb that should be delivered in the end service. Data's in twenty twenty five a got several of the European forces that are participating in that mission are using that aircraft For that purpose. Obviously it's got some of the Elo characteristics and strike characteristics that you that you'd want for delivering nuclear ordinance in if that ever comes to be an even as a deterrent. It's it's very effective so I mean that that is the the big issue now of course neither a typhoon or the Super Hornet or qualified today to carry the B. Sixty one you know so that would be required for there. Be An integration required. A process from car for both of them. Of course Boeing can point to the fact that the original F. Eighteen Hornet was qualified to carry the B sixty one. Fatf is you know a substantial modification of their aircraft. But they're familiar with the process that it would be something you'd have to add completely new to the typhoon platform. I wanted to swing over to Finland. Tony you've been tracking the Finnish fighter competition. They spent the early part of this year testing the various contenders for that. How long is that competition going to take to unfold? And which way do they seem to be leaning at this point if only it was as predictable as trying to figure out way they were leaning. Finland's processes quite different to the every other fighter competition. I've seen covered in the last few years since have been aviation week when he's gone is is a process where there's no comparisons are made between the aircraft. They test them. Although then simulate the aspects that they have been able to evaluate verify and then they'll put that into a war game at the end of this year and that will be the deciding factor in which platform. They will go ahead and choose and that decision will come in. In twenty twenty one so got the five main Western fighter jet to Typhoon Griffin Rafael Super Hornet and the thirty five. Thirty five is probably likely to be the one to be after all. It has virtually been successful in every fighter contest. It's taking part in with the exception of Germany as we just talked about the challenge. Here is that. Finland is a non-aligned country. Radio it's not a NATO country the tiny laundry with the European Union and it has very different needs very different needs and maybe some of the aspects of the F thirty five such systems alias warehousing of parts true wider distribution system that would be more. Nato designed rather than for a neutral country may not fit some of those needs plus it has very expensive infrastructure and so on so yet. The next few months could be very interesting. You point out in January and February. They tested all five craft in the country. It's going to be a very interesting
Lawrence Wright on Researching a (Fictional) Pandemic
"Last book was God Save Texas Nonfiction. I believe there was a play in between and now this just curious how you go from one project to the next and and forgive me if I skipped a project that may have been in between as well years ago. I made a resolution that I would only do things that were important or fun. Was you know the state of confusion about what I wanted to do with my life and I thought I as a journalist I like to be on the important stories of the day but I also realized that it didn't want to give up things that really joyful and so those are the polls stars of my career and I think is sort of understandable that I would now be working on a musical but you know if you take those as your pulse stars in. I think you can have a pretty interesting career. Are they ever important and fun? Yes this book was. I know it sounds you know is is is a rather bleak book but I really had a wonderful time researching it and going into the world of of public health in all these swashbuckling intellectuals I just admire them so much so I I really had a good time working on this book. All right I'm going to cut to the chase and let everyone know who doesn't know already that the end of October is a fictional story of a pandemic so before we get into more about it and want to go back again to the origin stories. You've said that the director Ridley Scott Asks you a question after Reading Cormac. Mccarthy's the road and that that was your inspiration. What was the question? And when did he ask this? When were you sitting around with Ridley Scott talking about this? This was a decade ago and he is questioned was what happened because Cormac didn't say anything. About what event or of nature had brought civilization to heal? So I started thinking about what could do that and of course I thought about nuclear war but I was a young reporter covering diseases out of the Center for Disease Control in one thousand nine hundred ninety six. There's a swine flu outbreak in the legionnaires disease and I had become enchanted with that world and the courage and ingenuity of the people that I found there and so I thought it'd be an interesting place to find a hero because I felt that those people that I met were really heroic and that disease had been underestimated as a problem for our society in modern times. So Ridley Scott ask you this question about a decade ago and you had been thinking about it because you had reported on disease over the years. When did you actually start working on? This novel really never made the movie. So like Mr Destiny of so many projects in Hollywood and about in two thousand seventeen. I've been thinking about this story. Still is in my mind so I decided I would go back and work on work on. It is a knock and this time I would dive into the research even more deeply and let the story emerged more naturally rather than cinematic -ly so that's that's how the novel got started. You are such a master your master of many forms but I love your nonfiction so much. There's so much research material in this. Did you think maybe there should be nonfiction? I DID CONSIDER WRITING ABOUT MORE DISEASES. But you know it already had an imaginary character and a world which it was said. I got attracted to the idea of tempting it as a novel. It seemed a challenge for me and I wanted to see if I could do it. Who WAS THAT IMAGINARY CHARACTER? Will the name of my heroes? Henry Parsons in the late. Nineteenth Century in England. There was another influence of outbreak and a young epidemiologist named Henry. Parsons was the first to prove that it was caused by contagion and not by my asthma's in the environment you know. He's totally forgotten figure. But I decided to tip my hat to him and name my character. Henry Parsons he is a man whose life has been touched rather savagely by disease and works out of the Center for Disease. Control where I had done by early reporting. And he's an epidemiologist who's confronted many diseases in the past but has always known that there was one awaiting him. There was going to be the big challenge so the CDC is in Atlanta Georgia and the United States. But this novel the breakout begins elsewhere. You have it really kind of take hold in Mecca. Why did you choose to do that? We'll after nine eleven when I was working on my book looming tower. The Saudis wouldn't let me in as a reporter so I got a job. I was mentoring young reporters at the Saudi Gazette in Jeddah which had bin Laden's hometown and one of my very first jobs was to supervise their coverage of the Hodge and I was was not allowed to go to Mecca myself but I was in communication every day with my reporters and I was very struck at the time about the hazard of gathering of people in one place from all over the world and having every year some disease arises sometimes more than one and there's an epidemic in Mecca and then people get on airplanes and they fly home. Well you know what if it was something really dangerous suppose it was like the nineteen eighteen flu. That was in my gosh even when I was living in Saudi Arabia enter the CA-. Golly flew right. This is her fictional virus. Tell us about that sickness. And how did you come to describe what this flu would be like? Why a flu even influence is unconquered. It's the great killer it every year. We lose maybe you know fifty thousand people to influence a very dangerous disease. Clever in a way in that has always mutating. And you never know what's going to show up the next year. I mean the the fluid self that comes every year is sort of a descendant of that nineteen eighteen original Spanish flu right. That's correct Pamela. We're right now. The seasonal flu is H. One IN ONE. Which is the strain that killed between fifty and one hundred million people in nineteen eighteen? And I said as a young reporter I had done stories out of the Center for Disease Control but one of them in nineteen seventy six was a sudden outbreak of h one in one which is what public health officials had been dreading their entire careers. And it was a young man of recruit in Army Base Fort Dix in New Jersey. David Lewis suddenly after a Long March. Came back to the barracks in died. They examined the tissues discovered. It was h one n one Tremendous panic took place in. I win all over talking to people in Fort Dix and enter the members of David Lewis is family and so on the big mystery was he was the only one who died and yet you know there was this in national vaccine program and it became kind of catastrophe for Gerald Ford because people got sick from the vaccine. It was just a total mess but hanging over this was peculiar FAC fifty. Two hundred million people died you know a century ago and then only one and then in two thousand nine to the H. One in one came back as a pandemic and it was more like seasonal flu in his still with us but the the question I had was what would happen if something like the nineteen eighteen flu brand new novel virus came into our culture. How would we handle? It will be better prepared than our ancestors were in one thousand nine hundred eighteen and so the the flu that I create Congolese is really modeled on that. Old Virus one that came out in nineteen eighteen. It was also a hemorrhagic fever. You know there was no resistance to it in the population. I actually created a template that is based on the progress of the flu in Nineteen Eighteen. So in the novel the fluid advances across the globe. It pretty much mirrors. What was going on in nineteen eighteen?
Faith in Times of Plague - Grimk
"This time we're going not too far back just about one hundred years or so back to nine thousand nine hundred. Nineteen and the twentieth century to talk about Francis Grim key. We've talked about him before. On five minutes in Church history he was born in the American south in eighteen fifty as a slave. He was emancipated at the age of fifteen at the end of the civil war. He made his way north studied in Pennsylvania and then he went over to New Jersey and was a student at Princeton theological seminary from eighteen. Seventy five to eighteen seventy eight. The importance of those three years is that they were in fact the last three years that Charles Hodge taught at Princeton so that is to say that grim key was one of the last students of Princeton to have Charles Hodge for all three years of the theology curriculum. Grumpy spent most of his ministry as Pastor of the Fifteenth Street Presbyterian Church in Washington. Dc. He died in one thousand nine hundred thirty seven well. We've all heard by now of the Spanish. Flu Of Nineteen. Eighteen grim key lived through it and he preached and then published sermon entitled some reflections growing out of the recent epidemic of influenza that afflicted our city it was preached on November Third Nineteen Eighteen. It is full of all sorts of insight on how a Christian can respond to play. But let me just focus on two issues with you one and I'll just read what grinky has to say. Another thing has impressed me during the epidemic is brought out in a way that is very gratifying. The high estimation in which the Christian churches held in the community the large place which it really occupies in the thought of the people the fact that for several weeks we have been shut out from the privileges of the sanctuary has brought home to us as never before. What the Church has really meant to us? We hadn't thought perhaps very much of the privilege while it lasted but the moment it was taken away we saw at once. How much it meant to us. One of the gratifying things to me. During the scourge has been the sincere regrets that I have heard expressed all over the city by numbers of people at the closing of the churches. The theatergoers of course have regretted the closing of the theatres. I do not know whether the children or the teachers have regretted the closing of the schools or not now. I'll just interject here. They didn't have online classes to move towards school. Just simply shut down so my hunches. Students and teachers probably didn't mind much but then he goes on to say but I do know that. Large numbers of people have regretted the closing of the churches. I hope that now that they are opened again that we will all show our appreciation of their value by attending regularly upon their services. It would be a great calamity to any community to be without the public ministrations of the sanctuary. So there is saying one of the things he learned is the preciousness of us he goes on to say Sabbath keeping and joining together in fellowship together. With God's people in God's house during the Spanish flu the churches were shut down and they couldn't worship together and so we're experiencing that today well as grumpy makes his way through the end of the sermon. He talks about faith and this is what he has to say if faith is to help us if it is to put. It's great strong arms under us if we are to feel it sustaining power. Under such distressing circumstances. It must be a real living faith in God he goes on to say is a good time for those of us who are Christians to examine ourselves to see exactly how it is with us whether the foundation upon which we are building is a rock foundation whether our faith is really resting upon Christ the solid rock or not. Well there's Francis Kripke reminding congregation in one thousand nine hundred eighteen of faith in times of

"Like you're not gonNA ask a question you know you have. I don't need to see them if you do. You need to go so your answer that yes everytime we go to the grocery store also I was like you can get scabies from a pet okay. So human scabies and cats and dogs. Gaby's they're all different species but you can get some bites if an animal is heavily infested but it's treatable in humans just now by your vet. Oh Gosh other people asked about. Horses wanted to know when a horse has fracture. What can be done about it and not not a lot of times typically unfortunate because of their weight and just the way their bill unfortunately typically that is that that leads to veterinary medicine The Citizen that we never liked to make which is unfortunately euthanized most stripped of weight on their their on one finger. So it's a lot of weight in it long. He'll problem I looked into this. And there's a woman named Dr Julia Montgomery in Saskatchewan working on research involving horse harnesses. That could save their lives by lifting them up letting their fractures heal without all that weight. So hypolito episode. Anyone horses generally wants to know. First Question Asker. Is it really okay for people to take fish or other anti antibiotics? Have you ever known someone who did this? To Fish Dot yeah. We don't recommend that you take any. Antibodies that are are prescribed to their animal right. I've I've known people don't have insurance. Get tetracycline aquariums. Fano recommend that this next nefer logical question was shared by Johnny Waldrop Morgan Alexander. Cockburn and Samantha. Jay Gunther a few people asked about Preventing Kidney Disease and KITTIES and Is Adding Water to food? A good idea. Or what else can ep people do you want to have one available but okay Low protein foods differently hill Because proteins have to be broken down and a lot of times Push more on the kidney so that so that's one of the things that's why they have these specialized lists less protein. Nash so diet is is one big thing that we do say and I definitely see the angle that we'll come 'cause we see a lot of kidney disease in animals and going back to technology they have test. Where is the I know you want to know what s MDA means? And I looked in its symmetric. Di Methyl Larkin symmetric die metal argenine s md but it's not to be confused with an SM D. H. Which is the threshold at which something makes you shake your damn head which tales before they even develop it now. It's really is really what you said. It tests may become about two years ago. Which is this amazing. It's amazing technology. Where before we looked at career at mean and blue tells. This animal is in kidney failure but now a totally healthy kidney we can find out those things by something called a test. It's and A. We recommend doing those as earlier. Preventative at least at six. Your financial five six. Oh and we all know it before and we're GONNA start making some some different. Medical type changed to prevent it so that will be the one thing try to do. Some preventative tests that more than anything can can let us know. If there's a precursor to kitten That's a good thing can be hereditary so tested them yearly or even when they get older every six months to kick these things before they start causing failure. We definitely have a better chance and in pretty expensive. I mean we're talking. Probably less than one eighty books. I mean. He's not a not a terribly expensive test. Oh that's good to know Lauren. Mask Broda asked about mental illness or behavioral disorders in pets They have a cat with anxiety and other with behaviors that the research compares closest to the OCD. How `bout animals that you put on PROZAC? Or how does that does that help? How were they hit? We have several behavior drugs. They the thing about it is most. Don't work don't work whale without having training with it. So basically a lot of them put animals in the frame of mind to learn then. Have to be trained from there. A lot of dog have separation anxiety owners leave. They just tear the house up. Debbie put on medication. There are certain training things we have to do along with it. They have to do at home. It's not like you're gonNA get a medication. Everything's going to go away. He's going to be fine. You have to do other things along with it such as Dr Hodges Explains Okay so simple things you can do is a. Let's say you're going to stay home and watch television. Grab your keys shake him. And if you have a pocketbook grab your pocketbook instead. Because this dog is getting wound up. He's watching. You is getting accuse it knows like okay. These guys about leave or this lady's about late. So finals cues that. Can you usually do but just sit home? See home that night. So let's say you come home. One thing we recommend is if the dog is really aren't really going to ignore it adult. You ignored initially come in. Let's say you get home. You can wind down. Grab your keys. Grab your pocketbook. Shake him and just sit down and watch. Tv At all and at all won't pick up on. Those cues knows some training things you can do. That are really simple. Oh that's good to know Anna people including Lacy Elaine Enter Lemon Kimba Katie Vials Anna Elizabeth. Emily Jean de Maya Spinoza Jessica drew and just Dr who wanted to know about grain free versus grain inclusive diets. Everyone seems to have an opinion. Nobody knows what to eat. How do you feel about it? I'll ask this everyday. Okay so I'll tell you I don't know the answer but this. This is the auto because I've talked to actually drips it rips in There was a test and there was a trial and they were founded us that a small sample did develop cardiovascular disease green fine Brian Free Iceberg body so it was a study so I mean this is there's been millions and millions of dollars have eaten in. This is a small sample now. I don't know I'll tell them but this is what I say all my life. They've told me to drink a glass of wine everyday to leave them forever level years ago and they say you drink a glass of wine. So I don't I'll be honest. I mean is there more tests. I'll be honest I just don't know because because it's just not enough test..

"Have you been working together as you do owe twenty two years we've worked together? He graduated a year ahead of me. He worked at a local hospital When I graduated I worked at the same hospital so we work together year at another hospital after a year. We decided that we won't open all practice for sure. And by the way. Dr Bernard. Hodges has an edgy hip asymmetrical haircut. It's almost like a half Mohawk. And he's wearing a dark button up shirt and blue sport coat. And Dr Ferguson has lower voice. And he's wearing a t shirt with the red critter. Fixer logo underneath a plaid gray blazer in his head is neatly shaved to a perfect shine now. They both grew up in Georgia. Got Their Bachelor's from Fort Valley State University and their doctorates in veterinary medicine from Tuskegee University in Alabama. Their southern accents amazing. They worked elsewhere for about a year before they teamed up and started critter fixers their own practice together in rural central Georgia south of Atlanta. But like we hear from a lot of allergists sometimes. The Path is linear sometimes. It has a few twists. What was it about animals about veterinary science? That you love. What drew you individually to this path so I'm a big fish. I've always liked face. I own I just. I was at a fascination with fish in our tease him all the time. I wanted to be the first like blacked-out Cousteau. I wanted to be like this. I love fish. I was one of these people that learn by doing on my grades. Were okay to make myself competitive with vinny school. I ended up working for the Agency for International Development and what we did was develop a fish project so at nineteen I want over to Nepal and we we raise fishing cages because they were looking for cheap protein source so what we did was CARPI fighter plane so we kind of would put the cages at different depths. See what a fighter plankton grows and can't tailed in wind. Put up where to put a cage especially during Muslim times and everything so when I got to. You know to vinegar school when I was thinking I could do fish. Do these different things migrants. Were okay but nobody you know. All the people were as couldn't say hip fit Feta village in Nepal. So That's how I've always loved animals so other people may have had higher grades but Dr Hodges had life experience and hands on Fish Science. So when in doubt? Gt F O. Go work in Nepal for awhile. Ms Does kinda would would help kind of Moldavian bin. Vinh present now. We tweet fish. You'll see fish on the show which read all variety animals. So that's how I got involved. What about Dr Ferguson? I want to be a veterinarian. For a long time I will probably eight years old. I was bidding by the veterinary bug got injured and on nursing back to health. Looking back wasn't hurt their bad but I thought I did something miraculous in here I am. I WANNA be a animal doctor and I've always wanted to be one is fun. I tell people that allow time. We talk about what we want to be when we're older. And but I can say that I wanted to be and you can look in the yearbook and the hands veterinary know my name. So proud of that though you know God bless me to become but it did come a point like you said. He did summer jobs and I did a couple of summers also with the US. Fish and Wildlife Service and and OPTIMA working in Alaska one summer with salmon and Whooping Crane but I I reached a point where I became unsure as you noted the profession of medicine is not very diverse And it was until our junior in college that I fought saul the first Black Veterinarian Veterinarian. It looked like so the point that I felt like. Can I do this? I don't see anybody that looks like mean as doing it. And I almost veered Ojha fishing wildlife. Because I we did it in the summer. I saw people like me and I knew that was something I could do and but I met a mentor when I was a junior in college in the Black Veterinarian and encouraged me to stay on path. Is that what you WANNA do? And do you think the eight guys also kind of keep encouraging each other because yeah everyday and this professing I mean? People people can't don't understand sometimes people think. Maybe we'll just play with puppies. You know which we do. I mean that's great part but I mean in a matter of seconds we can go from unfortunately euthanize the animal in relief suffering. That's maybe fifteen years old leave. Leave that room. Wipe deteriorate is and a minute later. We're in another room with a new puppy in half to talk to the owner about different. Thanks how to raise his puppets so the emotions are up and down. Sometimes it pays when you most especially if you do that four or five times a day. You know to roller coasters toe. So it's great to be able to talk to each other and say hey man it's going to be in the Lightman on a rough day or he tells me as a rough day and no no. You won't be just because this mainframe for thirty plus years. So Dr Ferguson. Makes the point that even though it's been his dream job for years it does not mean that it is a breeze. Ho No and you know being a veterinarian. We see multiple species so you know I may get an animal in the you know. We've only seen one one of that year to it may be a lucky or something. That's very stranger rare and I may have to give him a call to like man. I have this monkey in. Yeah I'm looking through the books and I don't see it. What do you think so? It's great having him to Beta bounce things off of because they'll just like you said he understands because he's in saint shoes and I mean so it's great having each other we definitely. I definitely wouldn't be where I am saying here but we also have also have a very playful competition too. There will rely. Hey Do amen. I went up. I mean we literally one of unity once you got. I mean I had an African to- today weighed three pounds. Or He'll call me and he has some sleet with pneumonia so we we definitely have a playful competition of stuff. We say when it comes to veterinary medicine. Prepare for that. Because you've got a hundred with four stomachs. You've got a toe the browser skin. Where do you can Google? You know a lot of people? Wonder you know you get out. You may practice large Madison. Or You may practice small medicine or you may practice exotics. We can do all of them but when you're in veterinary school. You don't specialize so we have to learn about all the species and when you know once we come out refined your skills. Are there times when you have to go back to the booker? 'cause one of course there are. There are a lot of species and you don't see them everyday. Dr Hodges says that in the early days they'd have to do dip tank xrays. Wait for them to develop and then send a snail mail envelope with a question to a specialist way for to get their way for the specials to write something back and snail mail back but now modern technology. Let's get an x ray in less than a minute. And they can get a complete pathology or cardiology report from a specialist. Like half an hour so this is good news for vets. It's better news for pet owners. Which by the way in America according to a two thousand nineteen study there are ninety four million pet cats in the US. Ninety million dogs it. Hey guess what fish people one hundred fifty? Seven million fish is out there in your houses so yes. Technology helps them to even when rural Georgia. We do have specialists that we can reach out to in the in. Modern Technology has definitely definitely had his his play out. I would say in our lifetime right which I mean. Don't you think we can keep an animal probably alive? Maybe two four years long because of advancements by we can detect things a lot earlier we have chemistry panels of blood. We can run down and take kidney problem a year or so before it happens. You know at one time. We only thought an animal came in. It was sick. We ran blood and kidney failure. Listen that blood all Dan. Yeah and we had to wait so then. We know two thirds of all kidney function his loss.

I know that you're sometimes maybe you're out looking at Allama in your barn and then maybe you're delivering puppies office. What is a typical day like and then also add cameras on top of that is no typical day am not being? I'm being facetious. But then again a series because we we'll make schedule out calls. Will you never know what you're going to see when you go out and you never know what's GonNa come through the door? That's not scheduled. We try to do surgeons in the morning. One that are scheduled trying to get. I mean immonen because we'd like for them to be done about teen taking care of them so that they're able to be up and go home that same day depending on on the procedure and then in between surgeries and the rest of the day was seeing clients and we may just never know whether that comes in between right maybe in surgery doing crew shakes urged at you know it may take a while to do and he called and Holiday Inn right because to see fiction.

He got on the plane initial ideas. We joke on the second time around. I know when he serious and it was a puppet dangling out of this dog. That was stopped. So it's time to get real. Get serious you know. Get another dog at the table so we can get see second taken care of. It becomes just like that a life and death situation. You just don't know what's coming in the door and it's definitely a roller coast when you wish that had owners for your clients did differently or new. Is there something that you wish? You could just telegraph independ- owners heads in society. Today is is bigger better. More exotic are unique to better in. Everybody WANNA go bigger. Go home in his thing but a lot of times a simple things like these is exotic pace feel theories the tiger in the bathroom. A really wish. They were educated on how to take care of him. I had a case last week very simple case this. This bearded dragon which is a type of a hit came in I took x rays have brittle bones it would move was dragging itself across the floor in these cow. Simi's all the UV light or either sunlight. Obviously you can't stay out side which our lives long time so you need some UV light. You try not to make the person feel bad but I was talking to her and I was like you know. This is what's going on and and it was something simple. I want you to do something I said. Just Google ultraviolet light in metabolic bone disease. And I. I said I'm GonNa take an extra when I came back. And she say wow duck thank you. I see what's going on is simple but those kind of simple things something. A twenty dollar like could've prevented this so I wish everybody wants to get more and more exotic. I mean we're seeing all kinds of different different animals and so I just wish that people could were educated more just the financial and that's a big thing. Educating the client and it's not always that they can't do they just don't know A lot of exotics husbandry issues whether it's a type of feed or what they're feeding the humidity or temperature that they are what they're feeding would. Do you know things like that. That called a lot of issues so just basic education on how to take care of them would go so that would probably be.

I am driving the van and the roads perfectly straight eight and I can see the group of kids including your mom maybe ten students in a group and this bolt of lightning hit right in the middle title of the students while they were biking and I said Oh shit this is not good. I saw all the kids stop so I drove up. Am I said what happened. And of course they were all very. They were very excited. It was like an adventure. They said this bolt of lightning came down. Hit the road and it didn't hit any of the students and this bolt of lightning partly hit the road and traveled on the surface. They could see the lightning affect pass underneath them and dissipate just in case. They hadn't had enough excitement for one day. Mr Hodges sped ahead in the van to prepare a special special kind of border-crossing for the kids I wanted to stage a fake inspection. The border guards would be frisking. The students inch the border guards. Were compliant Mr Hodges snap photos and chuckled. Assist students were halted and searched and then later on that day after we were camping in the United States. One of the kids came up to me and said Mister Hodges That wasn't such a good idea. One of the kids. It had something that he shouldn't have and we'll leave it at that Nothing happened but it could have gone sour. Once they crossed the border on July tenth the group pedaled into Washington. They camped outside of Bellingham biked South unjustice of Seattle sticking to lane highways and back roads. The climbed over a long pass near Mount Rainier. By that point.

And so he was reaching for my water bottle in the cage and our handlebars on the BUYSC linked and we just flew head over heels. We were going downhill not steep very casual day. No traffic nice weather and and Then I got a notice from one of the students. Hey you better go back. We had an accident. I broke my wrist and scratched up my face bad and he broke his cheekbone. They had to go to the emergency room and get treated and cleaned up. Mr Hodge's offered that Sean and Linda could stay on the trip and ride in the van or fly home so we flew home. I was very very sad. I didn't didn't want to but Hodges talked to my dad and they chose that I would fly them. So Sean in solidarity went home.

"And then of course every year that went on the kids would come back and say hey we want something even bigger so then we started looking at maps and say oh okay. What about Alaska kind of outrageous? Right GonNa let their kid go with a teacher during the summer for forty thirty days to Alaska. Yep that's Mr Hodges himself but you see by that time. The parents of the students had already already seen the proof that I had a reliable operation. Mr Hodges and twenty enthusiastic students from the Hoover Lincoln Bike Club started to pour over over maps. They plan the itinerary for twenty five hundred mile. six-week ride traversing Vancouver Island Interior British Columbia Washington Oregon and California. Yeah and then ending up back in the hoover parking lot other. Mr Hodges liked to call it the Alaska trip they would really only cross the state line of Alaska for heading south. He created a gearless te attend speed bike street clothing. A helmet of course in nineteen seventy-five helmets were flexible straps of leather. That provided minimal protection -tection but Mr Hodges had one for each student to at least conjure the image of safety. The kids did their best to avoid wearing them as it made them look like total nerds according to my mom hodges itemized cost down to the last penny for each meal the gear campsites the trip would cost each student five dollars per day or two hundred and ten dollars total which today would be about a thousand dollars. Yeah we were just pumped to be going on this trip. Everybody everybody so excited. Twenty five hundred miles is an ambitious distance covering six weeks to make it back on time. The group needed to average sixty five miles per day. Hundreds of made us do fitness tests to qualify so we had and to run a mile in a certain amount of time. I can't remember what it was. But he said there were three things that he required to go on the Alaska trip strength attitude in endurance. Oh yes qualification patient tests. Oh that's right. Yeah and we had to pass a bike maintenance tensed where we need to be able to fix our bikes one of the things that I set up near near the end was I wanted to know whether we could do a hundred miles. One day we went out to visa. They have a nice trail which does is a loop around the visa. Levy and so we bicycled around there for a hundred miles. Nearly every kid who wanted go on the Alaska trip was able to do the one. They were tired but they did it. Mr Hodges hosted a meeting for parents to go over the route out the equipment needed in the tannery a few days later on June twenty first nineteen seventy five. Mr Hodges and twenty two junior high and high school kids set off for Canada. The kids took the train from San Jose to Washington while Mr Hodges and his wife Ramona drove their van packed to the gills with gear for the trip. My Birthday Dave was the next day and I'm just so excited to be on the train to Washington. We all stayed up til midnight and I thought everybody was staying up because as we were so excited about the trip and they wanted to hear me playing my guitar and sing and actually they were just waiting till midnight to go to bed so they could wish happy birthday and then get outta either. The kids met Mr Hodges and Ramona in northern Washington where they boarded a ferry to Vancouver island during their first week. They wrote the length the Vancouver Island from south to North Ramona followed with a van full of food tennyson repair equipment and would meet the bikers at their campsite. Each night off. We had some very bad weather on Vancouver Island. I mean it was nasty rained almost every day and we only had two tenths for twenty four students students and we packed. I had my own but the students had there was a boys. Ten and a girl stint we would have to bike in the rain. Camp Out in the rain sleep in the rain yet up and then the hard part pack in the rain and then get after you pack. Get ready and bicycle from the get-go raining the whole time after three days of some good old fashioned type two fun. The the group boarded an overnight ferry from Vancouver island to Prince Rupert on the mainland of coastal BC. Then something almost magical occurred. We took the ferry boat over to the mainland and the rain stopped and the sun came out of rural almost like well. Where's the music once? They got to Prince. Rupert Committee. Hodges and the students took a short ferry ride across the bay between BCC and Alaska. But it's funny that you guys call it the Alaska trip because like weren't in Alaska was the mystique ridden from Alaska because it sounds so far up there all the way down to San Jose. Didn't we touch a list gives it took a fairy touched. Alaska see we did it court. Then they came back to Prince Rupert it clean their bikes and pointed their wheels east to begin the journey through British Columbia. The terrain was quite varied. I remember the mosquitoes were horrific and the writing was Strenuous but we you know we were young and fit and we stopped every twenty five or thirty miles for snack. Breaker rest stop. Aw from Prince. Rupert Hodges and the kids spent a week peddling four hundred and fifty miles to the inland city of Prince. George they stop to camp near gushing. Snow Snow Melt rivers and Pristine Lakes taking advantage of freshwater bathing opportunities whenever possible. During the long rides the kids would naturally divide up into groups oops and chat as they rode. But they'd stop at assign checkpoints to regroup. I created three teams of people with three different major jobs. Jobs and those jobs would rotate. Three jobs were cooking team cleanup team and camp team and you had to to you know. Load The van unload the van with all our stuff that hauled our sleeping bags and food and camping gear and hodges was just incredibly well organized and he kept us all going in line. He had our soup menu. Plan down to the last Buy So many cans of Veg all so many cans of this of that kool-aid and Tang and powdered milk. We never went hungry. We were never hungry. There was always enough that I recall but you know I was a smaller person. Maybe not eating as much as some others and even if some of the kids did run on a little hungry. Mr Hodges always had a creative solution up his sleeve a camp on one of the early days in Canada one of the Boys Greg Approach Mr Hodges before or dinner and said I'm hungry. It's not dinner time yet right so I'm thinking to myself Ha Here's a challenge. So I got this two pound jar of strawberry jam out of the truck and this is a hot day so the strawberry jam is very liquid. I said Greg if you can eat that entire two pound jar of jam in thirty minutes I will give you ten dollars dollars. So we all gather around right and he opens his Jarve Cham- and he swallows it in three minutes. It's the jam is gone and his mouth is covered with jam right and he puts it down and says I want more. Tom and I realized Oh way better than I do that. He's going to throw up and no he didn't throw up and yes. He had dinner following that not to be outdone by their science teacher. The kids quickly went to work inventing a retaliation. The worst prank that they pulled was on my wife they eight faked an accident on the road. She comes around driving the van and here. They are sprawled out on the road. Apparently at looked like maybe eight students it's lying down and they got catch-up escorted catch up on each other and my my my wife tells the story She Sheba's I scared and realize Oh my God this is terrible. What's happened? Then she pulls out the first day kit and wretches over to them and then they all get up saw a prize and my wife almost slugged every one of them.

"Back then. Of course there there were no cellphones. Parents had a vague idea of what their children were up to for the weekend. And where you were just unplugged you were unconnected connected. And there's a certain liberation to that that we had a pretty young age it was just a big adventure a big adventure the whole time. More kids boys and girls began joining the club. When the founding group graduated from Hoover in nineteen seventy three they renamed the club? The Hoover Lincoln by club so that they could still participate in. We can rides as high schoolers by Nineteen seventy-five. Mr Hodges had over forty forty middle school and high school kids in his squad we all sort of came together in this bike group and really did become kind of an auxiliary auxiliary family for many of us. It's shifted my life. You know I was sort of a quiet shy kid but come seventh grade eight eighth grade. I sorta broke out of my shell and found how strong I was. I'd never been pushed before San Jose public schools in the nineteen nineteen seventies hosted kids from an array of backgrounds. Racially Hoover was a diverse. Mix of Caucasians Latinos Asians. Many schools had recently closed does do to earthquake safety regulations. So kids from all over the city were bused to hoover of the kids who joined Mr Hodges by club about half white and half Hispanic some kids came from more affluent families others came from modest backgrounds regardless they all dug up bikes and hit the roads with their cutoffs sneakers. The kind of irreverence. You'd be hard pressed to find anywhere besides a raucous goggle of teenage kids.

"Ed Hodges or Mr Hodges Hodges or Haji Haji as his students no him wasn't your typical nineteen seventies public schoolteacher. In his classroom at Hoover. Junior high students would have to be prepared to roll up their sleeves. If they want to learn he made them take their thumbs to their poems for forty eight hours to teach a lesson about opposable digits. He said a pulley system on a tree outside to prove that one on kid could overpower ten and to demonstrate the effects of surface area. He had one student lie down with a huge flat rock on their chest while another wall up the rock with a sledgehammer just very enthusiastic and kind of eccentric. He was fun. This is one of my mom's classmates Linda Ferson. He could relate to US kids. He gets right down to our level and I don't think he ever progress pass that Mr Hodges had a unique way of engaging kids in class but it was his presence outside the classroom. That really caught doc kids attention. He rode his bike to school every day. Mr Hodges pedaled in on his schwinn continental which the students nicknamed the tank for its hefty frame and formidable command of the city streets rain or shine the tank and its rider inspired a lot of mystique over the years so so much that my mom and her girlfriends who also were their bikes to hoover every day requested that hodges sponsor a school bike club so that they could go on rides together..

"Cordelia hello and ready for a pop quiz. How God favorite teacher from going up? Go Mrs Berbie she. She was the best ever she was so spunky and every time she'd read aloud to us she just had the most incredible voices and she's the kind of teacher that pushed us really hard. But you as a student you never realized you're being pushed. If that makes sense it was always fun. I'm pretty sure I would have gone to school on the weekends. If she'd offered it I I loved her so much. But what about you or your favorite teachers Mine are Mr Greco. Miss Jones. An arm to think about it. It's comes on muscle quick. They both made me believe that. Not Not only could I be a writer but that I would probably be good at it if I worked really hard and applied myself All right next question for you. Did you like school. I mean yeah I feel like you should know. I'm kind of a nerd by now but I also struggled with that. I mean I remember being in middle school and staring out the window on the Most Immaculate Bluebird Dad ever seen in my life and just wanting to scream I feel like I learned so much from moving and the land and people and sometimes sometimes being stuck inside a classroom just felt completely wrong. But what about you I would say aspects of it I mean I was. I was good at school. I but I definitely definitely did not love it. I had this feeling that there was so much that you couldn't learn just from a book about people about relationships about community about success and ultimately really about myself Well do you feel like you lost faith in traditional school. Earning no but Funny Funny Story. I remember the first time I dropped off at school. I'm driving there. He's got his lunch box and the new backpack and he's like totally excited and I'm trying to be positive sort of but out of like nowhere.

Yeah but teachers. They are incredible. So I guess I have faith in it I just think it's one type of learning for a particular setting. I guess I don't really think it's totally reflective of what happens when you leave the walls of the school and you start exploring the world. Well today.

"And you can't tell the story of your experience other people aren't going to hear that and they're not going to understand how they can change that experience for other people and so so being emily that through through the poem what was really important to me That fed kind of background on. It was what it's like to and I'm not saying that this is a unique experience to women but I'm speaking as a woman. It's definitely something that I am more familiar with that experience which which is a the the pressures that society puts around appearance the judgments that are made around appearance both For Women and for men within our society so basically what happens when people walk into a room and What are all of the assessments that are made about two based upon? And what you look like and I'm pretty tall person and have always been pretty tall and so I've had that challenge challenge of being taller than the men That I've worked with. And what does that look like. What does that mean? Especially when you add in being from in the south and the the the the drawl y'all's not the politeness and the the things like that what does that look like and so So talked a little bit about that and unfortunately I think that again. It's not necessarily something that that is limited to Women feel this way and midfield this way. I think that That we as women put just as many Eggs in that basket if you will and make a lot of harsh judgments off of what's and people look like at what women look like bank. We decide they're either going to be nicer. They're going to be cattier. They're going to be all. These different adjectives kids off of Off of that appearance in how intelligent you are in different things that come along that way and so the poem is is really kind of a conglomeration of all of that on the other side of it is. It's actually entitled It's an it's entitled show Pony and I am and part of that is a nod to what I just said that it's also I. I said that my father was a professor for twenty five years so so my dad passed away seven seven years ago. I'm the he was professor of Animal Science so you really really well known as a in the Horsfield and so we grew up with horses still race horses And and so there's a lot of of Reference and analogy to what it's like to be that person that is worked very hard By someone else and then put into a situation relation to kind of be shelved and off to the side and only let out whenever that person wants them to be out in only to be that face whenever it's appropriate and necessary for that owner to to trough that person out there. Let them do their their thing for their benefit for the for the owners benefit and then put them away and so What does that that really do for? Those people who are who are horses in those situations crazy it was it was amazing. It was absolutely amazing to be there. I'm so glad I was We this is the the second last question is is a doozy. We spring it on people but what are three pieces of media be it a book or movie movie or a TV show or a youtube video. Whatever that have shaped your thinking or influenced you or inspired you or that? You're applying right now and you could recommend to our listeners. Well I have to say this simply because Carl will just roll his is is and we'll just die but One of my one of my favorite books that I do like to talk about in addition to anything Beiber neighbor out because number one. I mean we're both from Texas. This is we both graduated from the University of Texas. And so we're basically saying person right so we're GonNa just let them be at three B. He so anything that comes in through there. But and then the the second one that I utilize a lot and I reference a lot is an creativity eke by by Ed capital and so If you haven't had the opportunity to to to read it or to listen to the audible version or whatever the case is I truly think there are so many great takeaways from that book Just from thinking thinking about thinking differently in how do we Used this world that we are truly creating every single day in in new and different ways and and inspire people to keep creating So there's some really great management and leadership techniques An insight in there and an inch truly Carl. Every other day with I would say you know if you were just because I couldn't get him to read it. So you guys are GonNa have to ask him mckinney. Seem anybody anybody who listening out there please. If you see earl hooker asking if he's got a creativity ink and and he's read it and then asking for his favorite quotes from it because I'm sure he'll just ah that that says that the big one for me. Let's see it's really. Oh that's a big doozy of a question. Didn't like you didn't even help. Help me like prepare for that. Now sister rattle these things off the top of my head I am hugely influenced by And and I know this is GonNa be really trite and I completely understand that. But I am hugely influenced by Shakespeare. Part of that is because he was A great commentator of what was happening in in his life and what he saw and You know I think that. Unfortunately we have have chat with changed how that's represented in in in our day and age. Now we took what was meant to be something that was performed in unseen. And we've made that be kids need to read this and that has distanced The experience of it. And so I think if you if you look at it and you really start to look at all of the historical. Um You're inferences and the you know the word play and and the descriptions the engagement and a lot of the political commentary that he He presented in his work is just so impressive to me and then to to take some of those pieces and apply them into our world today One of the things that I'd like to say that I believe that every single person is It's three things number one. Every single person is an educator because we're always taking information and we're trying to get other people understand it every single person is a marketer because you're taking commission you're trying to get people to like and to buy into what it is that you're doing. And then lastly every single person is a storyteller and so taking those experiences and and sharing them in a way that people remember and hold onto and I think that that That Shakespeare definitely represented all of that together together and and You know to break a big fan how we butchered we butcher the way Shakespeare's read to. That's one thing that I learned as an adult that I didn't realize I was in high school in particular is that is that if you read Shakespeare the way it's meant to be read it makes so much more sense exactly than than the way you read it when you're in class and I mean I realize your your kids and your whatever and yeah but but like when you get a professional shakespeare reader to read it it makes it makes so much more sense yes and when you add in the expressions and the you know the move mirror I mean you're not reading all the you know the stage directions or any of that kind of stuff like it's truly how this this as being representative now. I Remember Teaching Romeo and Juliet for the first time in my my kids were like rolling their eyes ahead. The majority Boys that year and they were just like this is going to be awful and I was like okay. Look you have not experienced spare the way that I'm going to do like Romeo and Juliet. This is not like some try little things like this is sex. This is drugs. This is gang activity like this is GonNa rock your world and they were like holy cow. I mean like we. You know which I'm sure you again definitely different times. Yeah Yeah we have win great to like we bill now. They're did all kinds of stuff. I mean they totally under like after that that that it's supposed to be so for sure for sure there and the last one I'll share and I'll I'll give it to you so you can put it in the show notes linked to it. It's the video that I just recently come across on founded on Youtube and it's called a like and it's an animated videos about nine minutes or so but I'm totally worth the the the the experience on it It's an amazing video about compliance. And what happens what we do as adults specifically working with kids. It's actually presented as a father and a son As a mom I can definitely relate to it of you know we spend a lot of our time telling our kids do it this way. Don't do that way and you know and and I remember I remember when my oldest was was really young and the very first time that I didn't answer his question I said I don't know I was really tired and I just snapped at him and I was like I don't I don't know and he stopped in his tracks and he like frozen. He looked at me and he was like. But you always know that answer and it was that moment when and my heart actually kinda paused. Because I realized no. I don't know the answer. And if he's just going to trust everything is say not think for things himself self like that's what I want is for him to have this imagination and him to have his own experiences and not. Just memorize the situations that I've I've given him or or you know gone off of what my experiences are and Fast forward my little boy is going to be eleven and a couple of weeks and he And so seeing this video kind of brought that home because it talks about this little boy who's going to school for the first time and he's trying to draw pictures doing all these different things and The AH the the teachers are just trying to get him to write his name in the right spot and so he brings his work back and shows his dad and his dad focuses on the corrections directions at his. His teacher is giving him rather than celebrating things like make him so happy. which is drawing this picture of him swinging with his dad? Add at the swing set that they pass every time that they walked to school and then as time goes on. He doesn't WanNa Swing with his dad anymore because his dad is. Is You know focused on that at the same time. There's a parallel story of as soon as his dad drops. The though little boy off then the dad goes to work and he's basically basically in that same situation where his work is being graded over. Is it conforming to the norms that his boss is wanting him to do rather than these creative elements and how he starts to just shut down and just goes into you know robotic movements Johnson and and responses and things like that and so it's really really powerful on. I really just really like to share that with you guys guys. How can people connect with you and learn more about you? Maybe you're websites yet so you can find online at Brianna. Hodges B. R. I. A. A a Joe D. G. E. S. DOT COM or pretty much on any social media. Bill Hodges Edu and little love.

"I love what they do on offense. I love how they stay aggressive in really attacking people. I don't think they run it enough. which is one one of the reasons why I think they're not as good defensively? Because they're in such fast break mode that their defense plays a ton of snaps and I think he gases itself out and sometimes I need to slow it down. But I like Eric. I think they do great stuff in Kansas City and I know been with love it because that would give him an opportunity to throw for six thousand thousand yards of the season so sure he would be excited it he could buy onto. I would go a different way. This guy is currently coordinator on NFL. Phil Team Right now. He knows the Pittsburgh steelers played for the Pittsburgh steelers a good relationship Ben Rothlisberger so Ben Rothlisberger would still be run his deal. I don't know if they coach him away from his current job. I think there will be no none of them. Byron left which is down in Tampa Bay He Casinos Pittsburgh knows what to do. He's been here. He's he knows. The system knows Mike Tomlin. Well might not be a bad you know in in even I think he would be unique enough in the individual an individual enough that even if Rothlisberger. He's still here when Rothlisberger leaves he could still run it offense. He's not like what we're seeing with Randy feeder where we've said multiple the time. Say Oh my gosh. That's not what you and this is. Why my co host is awesome? This is why the standards our standard is the best dealer. Shou that is a great pick. That is a great pick off the top of your head with with Byron left which cause currently he's the OC down in Tampa Bay right. Bruce Arians correct. I mean yeah I and I think that left which could hold accountable in a way as a former starter that may be a coach. Could like look being. We gotta tighten this up like like. You can't turn them all over here but you you know I know you know. I know. I've started in his league as well. You can't turn it over. We're here we've got a great defense. We got the Dow this back a little bit in play to their strengths. We need points not turnovers in red area. I think that would be a great pick but we all know no. That's not going to happen because Randy is bins guy. I've assorted Connett. Reindeer land on the rain delay. And folks you don't know what you're going to get and there's not gonna be any apologies for him. I got a name for him to death Randy Rothlisburger. That's bad double burger. He sits on been shoulder. goes out to fail reasonable puppet Randy Ross Bird maybe Jeff. That's a great idea. You know maybe you should talk to the guys and put out a little puppy for Christmas for stocking stuffer. Randy Roth was burgers fikder but but his Hashtag Double Law Randy Office. After our last t-shirt I'm not sure what we'RE GONNA deal. He teasing me Noun on his into the playoffs. That's a different story.

Let me explain a little bit more real quickly when Jeff says priority win you typing. You do a search in the pockets that means win steelers shows pop up you see our show yes as least UCR show so you hit it. Boom there's going to be a couple of other shows. Forget those shows except for see. See if you see a friend of the program Cris Carter subscribe to his show and also subscribed to ours. And that's how you do break. This game downforce. Forgive me Your Offense Keys Jeff. Well I mean my gosh. The first one is should be the same one for the last twenty twenty one games protect the football. Do the best you can minimize damage. Damage don't hurt yourself and I think that's key number one key number two is what we've talked about that is don't be. Don't be predictable. Addictive that's ridiculous with some of the day talks about it. He was an offensive line coach in. He coached in high school. He knows the intricacies. The lion play much better than I do in. He talks to me at length about how certain packages he is. My Gosh. I could tell you exactly what they're gonNA run when they break the huddle in it's scary. Really how many times it actually plays out that way. That can't happen the NFL. It happens in high S- wiggins Gets these are not these professionals time to grow up get it at a reindeer. Land a Randy Rothlisberger in this. Call a good game period. Let's call a good game in the last day of. I'm doing three keys. Lean on lean on the guys. There you know you can lean on in that means it like you James Connor. Exactly ride him. You know I I understand that many Snell look good in his commendable time under the care of white is a good change of pace back. Jaylen Trey Edmunds. Why is he? He doesn't need to be have a helmet he just doesn't if James Name's connor is fully healthy. He doesn't need helmet so I WANNA see him. Run the ball utilized You know what if you want if you want to know exactly what I WANNA see. Go back and watch the chargers orders game in week. Six Devon Hodges started on the road in Los Angeles against the chargers they ran James. CONARD death net game. He touched the ball so how many times it was ridiculous passing game running game. He's he basically won the game. That's what I want to see because they're going to have to do to win this game It is good defense. The New York jets They do to stop the run through to be creative in terms of how you run the football but you can't just give up. I think the steelers offense will have to do just enough this. This is a game. I say score seventeen in you might walk out with a win. That's Jeff that that that's a great point in and I think I'm GonNa go watch that charger game but you're right lead. Lean on James Connor like who cares at this point in the season. I don't WanNa to say that his health and well. I don't want to say it that way. I don't want it to make it sound that way to where I'm being extremely frivolous about some some other person's health but I'm GonNa say this if you ask James Connor that if they win this game in this game they win this game. It guarantees that they will go to the play offs. If that's a deal that he make if he knew that he would bust his shoulder order out he would bust his shoulder out to get this win for them to go to the playoffs. And you know he wants to go to New York in outplay. Mr Bush naked and robbed. No whole nother discussing you know he wants to do that. He was us to show Mr button naked and robbed. What's up? You know he wants to do that. I Love Your Keys. I Love Your Keys Jeff I think they're spot plot on that game plan against San Diego to me. Is the game plan. The day should follow on offense. Assigning Bala deepen side of the ball. I think you gotta be smart with the way that you rush. Sam darnold because again. They're facing another quarterback that is fairly mobile. They faced cuyler Mary Allen out out darnold three guys in a row. They've also faced Lamar Jackson so I think they have a plan in terms of how they rush can rush past the guy. You can't get too far UPFIELD. I think when you look at Sam Darnold you WanNa put Sam darnold third long situations. You Really WanNa make him uncomfortable so you really need to chop off the head of mistake and now you have to limit later on bail in the running game. Because I think they're going to try to attack the steelers with lady on bail in the passing game so I think so. This is a game where you're gonNA see ton of Williams because I think you do you do. That's a match up that the jets will try to take advantage the job immediately. I think you'll see a lot of Barron in this game and I think you'll see them. Try to target either the inside linebackers with lady on Bill. But this is a game. Amy You've got to put Sam darnold inconsistent third and long situations. They have a couple of deep threats into Mary. Thomas Ethics Bobby Anderson The wide receivers. Well Darnold is indecisive young player. I don't think Donald is even started. Sixteen Games yet. One another key. Matchup is is GONNA be Kelvin. Beecham junior versus but depre-. That's GonNa be interesting match. Their a former teammates practice against each other guys. That are going to go up against ask each other. They're going to have to put the same thing. It's the same thing every week. They're gonNA get after darnold. They're going to turn them over. But I think that all starts with breath choking off the running game you stop lady on bail you hold him to about three three and a half yards per carry you put the game and Sam darnold hands. He is going to make some bad decisions. You turn the ball over you win the football game and I think they can really get after jets. Offense is ZAM DONALD G say he's mobile. Yes while maybe I just haven't watched film that guy. I never thought that he would be considered given the mobile tag. He can run one yet. He's mobile death. You talking with Anger Mayfield. Mobile or you talk in my job. I'm talking about Josh Allen Baker Mayfield mobile where Josh Allen his nine rushing touchdowns. He's that mobile. He's not mobile in a sense where he's like fast an elusive but he's mobile in the sense that he can escape the pocket. He could run for a first down. He's Kinda like Aaron Rodgers. SORTA MOGUEH dodges mobile's because now we're GonNa Cau- aw runs for him Gotcha. But it's enough to where if you rush past them and you give him a running lane. He could tuck it and get seven or eight and get into a second in two and then convert their downs. This is tackling game as well. This is a game where you WanNa Make Sam darnold and not offense earn. Earn every single yard because you can tackle limit yards after the catch. I don't think they consistently can make plays so. I don't think you have to be overly really aggressive. Defensively where you have to sell out blitz them do all that stuff. I think you can look at a little bit. Not Give up the big play choke author after run. Get him into some third along situations and get after him because he's the guy that famously said on Monday night football game. I'm seeing ghosts. Let's I WANNA give to diesel super cab. Forget I trust him on top of that. Michael Molly was five dollars. The tips run. Says we don't have the next rain has defined the replacement sooner rather than later also to get a confident of see. I WanNa talk about this later. But look finding your next franchise. Chai's quarterback is not easy. We'll just put it that way. I'm GonNa get just looking just looking at Cleveland. They don't grow on trees okay but I wanted to bring that up so.

"So if twenty one becomes twenty two in listeners. Sisters we're talking about will the steelers turn over the ball in the twenty second consecutive game. Pick or will it be a fumble death That's the thing it's not just one. It's not just one way anymore. It's not just Devlin. Hodges swinging the ball round had it I mean it was. It was insane how how deontay Johnson puts on the turf so much. He's a rookie too. I get it. I'm patient with some of these things. But you deliver the best diff- arms on tr- Davies reviews white I've seen in a long term receiver. And then you put the football interpreted lose that fumble but it's still it's it's discerning to see that Devon hodges is loose with the ball in the pocket he had a couple of fumbles. I just think right now that I would be stunned if this streak ended against the jets. It's just it doesn't look like it's the way that they're set up. I'm GONNA go ahead. I'll go. I agree with you and I think it's GonNa be a pick anthem. I was GONNA say Deontay Johnson. The says Johnson's ball security is bad and he does little things that I'm sure drives the coaches nuts. For instance. He will not switch the ball. He'll be running to the left boundary boundary. He will keep the ball in his right arm exposed to the field where it could get knocked out where he could fumble where he's supposed to switch to his left whereas left arm is to the Boundary Andrea out of bounds. And he won't switch it I feel. He'd fumbled switching. He probably would he probably anytime like he just carries the ball all away from him. So let me jump into the next question topic number two when it comes to the jets. Who will be the most targeted player in the game? I'll go with. I'll go with the ONTA- Johnson targets targets. How many I'm GonNa go eight eight targets? I don't think I don't think they're gonNA throw you get remember targets it can be. Also there's little shallow crosses or Jet Sweep that technically still a pass is still a target. They use him in those types of plays in those positions more the James Washington James Washing say he'll get six. Oh so curious. So that's fourteen so keeping it on the targets so if they get fourteen how many. How many targets do you think how many rows will there be for the game and told twenty three twenty three I think it's odd number straight these would be put on. I'm trying to lead you kinda steer you in a certain direction because because if you say twenty three yeah I'm going to say they run over fifty snaps Let's say sixty snaps. And so I think the most targeted player hopefully will be James Connor. I think James Connor will get seven to eight targets and we'll uh-huh a breakdown of your head. How many targets he had last week? I'm GONNA say ye maybe had five or six targets last weekend. I can pull up the game. Book here So you're saying you're saying because that's another question I have about. How many throws so you're saying twenty-three throws rose let's just say twenty five throws shirt I agree with you. I think twenty five throws is about it in. That's kind of where Eric should be. Let me give you the distribution from last game James Washington got eleven targets. Deontay Johnson got seven. Nick Vinet get six. James is Connor Hat. Five Johnny Houghton had to Samuel's Gentry Jones in Kane all had one or two targets for total of thirty six targets Danni Holt and having to crime they go ahead but he actually had to conceptions minus one yards. That it's tough to do man. I mean you have to really try hard to really cry yard too for such. It's so let me ask you another question. Pertaining into the offense in this game run pass percentage in breakdown. So let's let's keep it at sixty plays. I don't think they run sixty plays personally go ahead. We can go sixty. So what's your one. Pass break down. In terms of pass percentage they ran sixty plays if they run sixty Twenty five I mean he did math. They're definitely running it more than they are passing it. which immediately gives me pause is because then I think to myself? There's no way rainy feeder would run it that money that much comparative to throwing the football but this is typical Pittsburgh steelers knee jerk reaction to it too bad game in that is we're GONNA go from one end of the spectrum all the way to the other in the drop of a hat and it just happens to be against the League's one of the League's Best Rushdie fences in the New York jets so this could be this could look like someone one taking their head and banging it against the wall repeatedly over and over again. I don't know I'm GonNa say the steelers are GONNA do. It will probably close to two to one. Run to pass is what I'm predicting but I I just don't know if that's going to happen but I think you're about right. So last game they ran. They ran fifty six plays in when duck plays they can run around anywhere between like fifty five to sixty sixty two sixty three somewhere in there if they're counter winning a time of possession battle. I think you're right. I think what we've seen even under Haley in under teens teams realized that they got away from their identity entity. I think teams have a tendency of overreacting in. They really WANNA get back to their identity. I think they'll come out and be a little overly overly conservative but not creative and really try to establish the run and really try to protect protect duck. I should say and to get duck in a rhythm so I think it'll probably be to the one you know. I like your play distribution where they'll run it thirty five times past twenty five times if they run thirty five times. Jeff would you think your yards per carry. Ob as a team. I'm going to say it's going to be just under four. I'll say like three point. Eight three point seven nothing. That's going to be mind boggling. But it's GonNa be enough that they can control the clock like you said create manageable down in distance stuff off of that nature. I think the debate about thirty five times. They'd probably win too easy. You agree with that. I would agree. I think if if they put themselves in a position where they could get their normal number of Saxon turnovers and they can run at thirty five times then they probably win that game. I think that's the formula for a victory in in the game. So Jeff Gimme Your Office of keys for this game. We've Kinda topped Arou- what it'll kind of look like in terms of number of plays where they turn it over targets. I wanted to frame it that way so you could jump into your keys off. It's in what do you think this offensive game plan should in will look like. Yeah we'RE GONNA get to add a second of snow. Oh man put five dollars in the tip jar Question he wins He. Do you want for offense coordinator if the steelers were to replace Randy Feeder. Is anyone else WTRW head. Yes Geyser Office you know you guys are going to hate it because we're talking about running and running football to support this defense and being a little more conservative and not turning over the football. But I'M GONNA say airbnb of the Kansas City chiefs..

"I mean not just the red zone I mean you have plays as like you have a big play like that Steven Nelson Interception. That's a game changing play. And the next play from scrimmage you run a wildcat play with James Connor who I don't believe ray has run a wildcat option play since week four Monday night. Football Law Act Against Cincinnati to Johnson Johnson which he's never handed off to him the snapple slow at something. That's been plaguing penalty for a lot a lot this year. And they get the ball right back just like that just like that. And it's it's situational stuff you know even go into I mean the steelers punt the ball to the bills tied up ten ten. He'd run renegade in the stadium. What happens down the field John Brown of abuses Steven Nelson? And I just this team. We've me scratching my head so much it's ridiculous and ought ought to be honest with you. It's there's so much blame to go around Randy Feeder Devon Hodges gets plenty even if you WANNA go to the minute you have have the completion to I think it was nick. Vernet with less than a minute left. No timeouts and with twenty seconds you spike the ball. Will you stop the clock. you run a play instead. What do they do? He's sending James Washington the motion. Awful Defensively Lancet when you look at things. What were your thoughts on the defense said they didn't? They didn't have a lot of three and outs but I I don't know it just seemed like we'll some of the some of that we can talk about it in in the numbers but I want I want to get to accommodate from getting bitten with Bo. wrote unions are terrible terrible. I knew that as soon as doug had a bad game you will be calling for his job it is this is. This is for you though. I brought out the duck. Look I I hope you heard me saying Bo. I hate to criticize the young guy. He is what he is. I think that the coordinators again put him in a tough situation where he has to throw the ball. Thirty eight times against the defense is good as bills on the. You've gotTA help a kid out. You can't put that much of the game in his hands. I mean you have to run the ball better. Run the ball more effectively. So I'm not jumping off the duck bandwagon in by no mean or the duck wagon I should say and by no means do I want Mason Rudolph to be the starter next week against the jets. It just is what he is. He had a difficult game. And I think if you were to talk to duck tomorrow he tell you play poorly any.

I hope it's not the computer's about ready to die so we might have to better hurry this up here at the end game. Someone says they're getting out of here to go watch the SEC championship game. We do have one more super chat question. I think I'm going to end the show with this and I haven't read it ahead of time so I'm really hoping hoping that it's appropriate. Says Duck evades. TCU's on Channel Jones off game and picks up fifty plus with his feet or he finally steps up up into the pocket and Land Six plus deep shots. That's that's a pretty interesting observation there. Okay that could he. Could he make make something happen with his feet more. I still think it was a question that we brought up that I brought up on the preview and that was a statistics of love the pressure rate for route off versus hodges so far this season and how the pressure rates. I don't have the numbers right in front of me with right around fifteen or show for for hodges and forty five percent for Rudolph but question is wiser so much more pressure on it and I was noticing. Did do you do you have have to keep someone. That's almost like a spy on on. Hodges I don't know that he's that much of a rusher or teams feel like they didn't have to worry about anybody with that with Rudolf. So they're sending extra guys I don't know but that's one thing that's interesting is the duck has done some stuff with his feet specifically and I know like even when he came came into that Ravens game it did so with that said I know Lance answering questions here that that was there so I was trying to see what he said.
