David & Christen Limbaugh Know How to Write on a Popular Level
"I am talking to the authors David Limbaugh and Kristen Limbaugh bloom of a new book, the resurrected Jesus, the church and the New Testament. And at the end of last segment, I was just I was mid rant. I was ranting because I get that all the time, where people who have spent decades, let's say, on as Bond Hoff or scholars or whatever. And they look at someone who has a BA in English and they say, what right do you have to write about this? And you realize that's kind of the problem is that it's very rare that you find an academic who can write on a popular level. We could almost analogize this to the experts who hate Trump because he is in a career politician, but I won't go the second. No, no, no, but it's exactly the same principle. It's precisely the same principle. It's like somebody says, I am a professional politician. What right do you have? Well, the founding fathers created a situation where average people are supposed to govern themselves Cincinnati and his plow, you come, you serve, and then you go back. The idea of the career politician, the professional politician, it's the same misunderstanding that you have in the world of writing and the academy. It is. And this is true of law books, they're written to other law professors, not even to practicing lawyers, law professors. And they're elitists and showing off. The same thing, I don't think the theologians are showing off. But they do ride on a higher level of some commentaries are more light level. But one thing I learned to bridge this gap is I, one of my early mentors said, I said, I don't understand this commentary. I want to understand this, commentary. Well, I mean, I've been steeped in it for 20 years. You'll get more. The more I read, I do get the jargon. Well, here's a great thing. I think I can introduce readers. We can introduce readers. And she's been into this too. It my behest, of course. I deserve all the credit. And we can introduce readers to the brilliance of commentators by kind of rewording what they say. And then they would never even hear these people, you know? And there's some great ones out there. I don't know what you think. Well, I think of it. Well, John Macarthur and what a jerk. Yeah. Actually, I like John Macarthur very much. He's amazing, but you just, but you actually, you touched on something. And this is why I get so animated about this. You're doing exactly what I do in most of my books. You are a popularizer. You're basically saying like, look, I'm not going to spend 30 years studying this, but I don't need to God didn't create me to do that. Other people have done that. What I can do is read their stuff and help allay reader understand some of the best of what they have to say. And that's what I do in most of my books and it's exactly what the two of you are doing in these books. I know that for a fact. I mean, as I see it here, I think that that's exactly what you're doing.
What's New With Mike Lindell? Coffee!
"Welcome back out of the frying pan that is John's mirac into the fire that is our dear friend, Mike lindell, Mike. It's been too long. We love you. What's new in your life? We want to hear everything. Well, you want the lighter side of the heavier side. And the lighter side we have. We have my coffee now. We can get that at my store. We've launched my store, which is for entrepreneurs. We went completely separated. Now it's on its own for entrepreneurs and or their products. And now we have my story had one of my coffee. I'd want to see all of my books are at my store dot com. The bond Hoff or posters at my store, but Donald Donald caveman books. So my audience should be familiar with it, but you're telling me now you're selling coffee. It's the best coffee I did find your diligence. I tried the coffee, it was about it's in my office a couple of four or 5 months ago and I go, do we change coffee this is the best coffee I've ever had. As you know Eric, I travel everywhere in this country every day, try and rot and copies it hotel, some good, some bad, but it's an endless stream of horrific copies. Well, this one, no, I have to take what's the best best copy I've ever had in my life. So I went and got a hold of the entrepreneurs. I went and met their family. They have their in part up. They have fields in Honduras and they've been doing this for 15 years. So I said, you know what, how about if we partner up and I'll take you guys to levels if you can make this many or make this much and so it's so good that you went after them and you went after them, put you on my store dot com. Obviously folks, I want you to go to my store dot com and use the code Eric. Get as much my coffee as you like,
Eric Reflects on Meeting Two Women Who Knew Bonhoeffer
"Okay, next question, bahnhof, is an amazing book that I think every pastor should read. Could you please say something more about your time with Ruth Alice von Bismarck and renata? Becca. As I would think that that would be a very moving experience. I'm pretty sure that in the tenth anniversary edition of my bahnhof her book, the new one, the tenth anniversary edition. So if you go online and you buy it, it's kind of a slightly more close up of the face of Bond hoffer. But in that book, the tenth anniversary edition in the hardcover, I did a long introduction where I talk about meeting these women that knew bahnhof for personally and it was extremely moving to meet these women who knew barn Hoff or personally. It was it's hard to take in both of them have passed away. But I had the privilege in 2008 of spending long afternoons with both of them with Suzanne. And it was kind of amazing. But that's in the introduction to my bahnhof her book, the tenth anniversary

If Eric Could Have Dinner With 4 People, Who Would They Be?
"If you could have dinner with four people living or dead, who would they be? You know what's interesting about that question is that it's as if you could have dinner. Like it's always dinner. It's not like if you could hang out or whatever. If they're dead, they're not going to eat. And I think to myself, a lot of these dead people, they're no fun. No, it's interesting because you start thinking, would it be possible? It's such a theoretical question. It wouldn't be possible to have dinner with the four people I'd like to have dinner with, because even if they were there, my jaw would be hanging open. For four days before I would get to actually talking to them, right? But what for? You know, I mean, everybody knows that it's kind of like what the animals, like, which top 5. It's like, well, they're all dogs. And maybe a monkey. I mean, if you could have dinner with anybody, if it wouldn't be Jesus, who would it be? Can you even imagine? Can you imagine what it would be like to talk with him? As I read this book by Jeannie Constantino, which is a title, the crucifixion of the lord of glory, the king of glory, it just brings Jesus to life, lately I've been reading some and you just think that's all I can't even. There's just no, there's no way. So it's easy for me to say Dietrich brah Hoff or William wilberforce Martin Luther, I guess. Martin Luther, Paul linn, Charles Nelson Riley, dick cavet and David

"People thought it was impossible. He's done. it's amazing jeff. Bezos is in there. Richard branson totally if you wanna go into that. You don't have to go rocket ships. Those guys are doing like they're the big fish. They should be building rocket ship. You can build software for them like that's great you build other pieces of this ecosystem that can be extremely valuable in the future. If you look at genetics like gene editing crisper you know where you spice jeans and create new n recode living organism absolutely. We're on the cusp. something enormous. We have decoded the building blocks of life we can now create new species of plants and animals that never existed before. Like we're gods and you look at. It's the software of living beings right so genetic editing is just. It's really crude. It's like we're back in. The old days of assembly language was really grew crude but We are developing the tools right now that will allow us to create cures to all the major diseases. New types of plants animals may be survive with as climate changes. You know they're developing these cows that can survive in extreme heat these crops that can survive in you know extreme temperatures. All of these things are are coming there in the pipeline is going to be an explosion. We're just at the beginning of that. You look at some crazy technologies like brain computer interfaces and others lots of potential there. People people wanna look into their harder. Robotics is harder things that involve hardware and stuff like that much much harder than software but still a lot of opportunities blockchain blockchain the whole ecosystem around pretty amazing. Like you know. There's a lot of things it can do. They're building the whole defy system that are really going to shake their already. Impacting finance impacting. The world. be careful though like there are a lot of. There's a lot of hype out there. There's a lot of people selling solutions to things where people have no problem. They're literally it's a it's a gambler's paradise like so if you're a betting on all coins all these different old coins. Well you're going to vegas right. You're you're betting on you. You have to be very selective at the end of the day because a lot of them will not be around so it so you may make a lot of money in the short term but you never know like so. I just tell people there's going to be innovation in this whole blockchain space. They'll be other blockchain blockchain. it's morphing and evolving the other technologies like that. Keep your eye on those that going to be a lot of opportunity that so powerful captain hop. I love the point about so much to look forward to write computer brain interfaces the way that software i mean david socks is an entire venture fund craft. Let's just focus on sas completely agree with the exciting innovations last question for me..

"In our online store whereas a physical store. They can't said that's a great starting point. If we can do with books we can do with every other product category in the future which are much harder to figure out you know. Now they're doing groceries. Which are the hardest fresh foods and all that but it's working even when previous startups tried that same exact same idea shipping groceries web van and others and tanks right there were just to earth so he's really smart n- understanding what he could do in wendy. Do when to do it and then jeff bezos was really smart on one other area. He understood that his most powerful tool was to please his customer. Like if he could if he could he he said like he realized. Certainly a lot of other online booksellers in the only one. That's gonna win. At the end of the day is the one that people come back and buy from again like if they have such a good experience so he deferred profits and this was a big issue for a long time now. They're making money hand over fist. But i remember you know. For years and years like decades they were not profitable he deferred prophets to create better customer experience. If you look at one thing as did that was just absolutely a brilliant. It's he was one of the first people on the internet to say. I wanna make it so easy for people to return products like i remember the day in the early internet. Were they would hide the return button. They would make a call a phone number where you got an automated reply and you'd have to go through all this stuff so that you would not return the product because of course they lose money when you return the product. They do not want you to return the puck right they wanna be more profitable. That's how every other online retailer at the time thought jeff betas comes along and says now i'm gonna make it so easy for you to return the product like it's brain dead simple people. That's a crazy idea. You're going to lose a lot of money. I don't care at the end of the day. If a person doesn't want the product. I want them to return it because i know they will come and buy from us again. And that's exactly what happened. The not only bought from them again. They bought more products because he were afraid that they'd have to return them like it's super simple to return so ever step of the way everything..
"hoff" Discussed on Assistive Technology Update
"On the lights. You could potentially drive a car. You can order pizza from the local pizzeria. You can do all these things. In addition to downloading knowledge and then the applications for that in terms of assistive. Technology are really mind-blowing. So that's just the first force get to the next level and you're talking about artificial intelligence artificial intelligence. Do what can do today. In deep automating automating all these different aspects of our life that currently human beings are doing and what impact will that have on us personally and society in general there's also space technology like the you know we are now with elon. Musk and jeff bezos pouring billions into this going further in space than we ever dreamed in our lifetime potentially even colonizing mars. where will this take humankind. And there's also new materials nanotechnology these materials that we are developing like graphene and others. You haven't even heard of while profound effects and using working at the nanno scale you can also build tiny machines which we may be injecting little machines that you can't even see with your naked eye into our body to eradicate cancers to clear arteries to even potentially keep it so that you never have to brush your teeth again because you have little man. A robot's cleaning your teeth. So these changes are coming. They are in the pipeline and they are going to radically alter our society and finally there is genetic editing we have literally unraveled a source code to life and now we can just as we code computers. We can start to construct new living organism plants and animals on earth. We can invent them entirely new ones or modify the ones that exists today so you could be getting gene therapy. That can literally make you live longer. Potentially that can cure diseases. Like alzheimer's disease potentially parkinson's disease that can eradicate different types of cancer. You know our bodies. We're going to be programming. Our bodies even from birth making designer babies so all of this is in the book. Well that's a whole lot to think about their real real quick. So so as we dig into those. Those new emerging technologies and amazing things coming down. Where do you think they'll fit into the disability and assistive technology space there are so many different applications and also because disabilities are so broad everybody from autism to somebody who's had a spinal injury to somebody who's the blind or partially vision impaired. There's so many. But let me just tell you a few of the things that really excite me so one of my friends is david eagle. He's a neuroscientist and he has a company called neo sensory and they are helping people right. Now they're getting ready to watch this product that is helping people with hearing. People have hearing disabilities but the hearing impaired. They might not be completely deaf. They might be able to hear but it's difficult. It could be age related. It could be accident or you know. That's the way they were born. However she has perfected the idea and the concept and built a device that does sensory substitution. And what do i mean by that like what it does is it essentially allows you to hear through the nerves in your skin by wearing a simple bracelet. You can actually get vibrations audio vibrations translated into the nerves on your skin in your brain. Being extremely malleable can actually begin to decode these almost on a subconscious level. You will start here just through this bracelet. Works like magic that that's amazing and it takes me back to. When i used to be a job coach. I had some different consumers who were deaf. We're actually deaf. Had had no usable hearing and i saw them at a concert one time and i couldn't i was like well. Why would they. But then i realized you can feel the music at a concert. It's loud enough that you can actually feel it. So they were having most of the same experience. So i can see where that kind of comes from that same idea. But that's that's amazing. What are some of the other ones so many out there and some of them are just amazing. So they're building robots now for autistic children that will that actually the autistic children have trouble relating to other people. They have to learn these skills and it's much harder for them to overcome these barriers however these robots we'll be program to actually understand their needs and and interact with them in a way that makes them feel comfortable so keeping them calm communicating different things. The robots are specially designed so that when an autistic person may say something or do that either disturbs another child. Let's say or or even feels threatening or frightening to other kids because they don't understand what's going on for the robot it's just normal like they will. They will understand and they will be able to help that. Autistic child learn the skills necessary to become more functional in the world so these robots are getting smarter and smarter. They've developing them. They're deploying them in schools. They are great assistive technology. Nice and i know there's a lot of cool things being done with a as well. What are some of the really cool. Things being done with the help individuals with disabilities to. Ai is is really broad so is going into all sorts of different things. it's going into the robots for kids but it's also a is out there in one really interesting combination of ai and brain. Computer interfaces is that artificial intelligence is being used to actually decode the brainwaves. Like so we have a lot going on in our heads. But it's very hard to interpret what that means in the real world one. Is you know you might get all these brainwaves through a device like an eeg device which can actually measure changes in your brain waves through the voltage. But what do they mean. what what. What is the person trying to communicate will using ai. You could remove a lot of annoys the brainwaves that don't matter and focus in and recommend ai machine learning. It's really good at pattern matching. That's what it's excellent and that's what you need when you're decoding brainwaves because let me tell you. They are building devices right now. For people who have extreme disabilities for example. There are people out there with locked syndrome meaning. They are completely paralyzed like entirely. Maybe the only thing they can move is blink. Their eyes so this you can imagine your life when you are that disabled. You almost don't have a life like you can't feed yourself. You can't go anywhere and can't do anything however by inserting a chip in their brain and decoding those signals. They actually these people can now control a robotic arm and they have this at brown university. It's working at brown and other universities and actually feed themselves. They can actually start to control an ipad or iphone and send a text message to other people so these things that were just totally impossible before are now possible in this technology is only at the beginning stage. Another for this. Be an ai. Combined is people who have lost an arm or a leg the or making prosthetics now that are extremely advanced that just by thinking you can actually control the prosthetic arm and you can actually because of sensors that are embedded in the fingertips of this artificial arm. You can actually start to feel like what the real world feels like. You know through that arm. It almost becomes your arm even though it's a mechanical arm but because you can start to receive sensory input through it you can actually start to feel it manipulated. It's life changing experience for these people in. They're getting these right now. The very first generation. They're still like version. one point. Oh but you can imagine a decade from now. They're going to be so sophisticated because even today they can put that prosthetic arm on you. The more advanced ones actually connected to the nerves in your body so that as your brain signals down those nurse it just starts to function. It's like when i was a child and watch the six million dollar man. The bionic man. All of that is coming true. You know we have now biotic. Is your implants for hearing. All of this. Technology is coming out now so the people who totally the six million dollar man is possible in today's world in actually is possible. Let's just hope it's a little bit less expensive but most of us can't afford it mobile to make it a little bit a little bit less expensive well and we talked about the good things and everything. And i'm sure you probably get into this book but talking about what we grew up watching. I grew up watching terminator in the matrix and other movies like that. Were you know man does create these amazing things and eventually it leads to our demise. D do you kind of touch on that in the book at all. I go very deep on that. So you know. All of these technologies are wonderful for especially for people with disability..

The it wasn't a very pretty world there was no penicillin. This was a brutal world that we lived in in the past but through technology. We have made it a much better place at the same time we can see. Were were really at a point where technology is going to have profound impacts on our society in our individual freedoms that some of us may not be comfortable with and in order to use this super powerful new tools in a way that really benefits. Everybody we need to have this discussion. And i think that this is where we start getting into things like open source and link things with large language models. Gt three in some of the things that get discussed in the labor force as we start talking deep automation and you move into the singularity in the intelligence explosion there's intrinsic bias that is baked into society in if you take a large sampling size of text or whatever then you've now baked intrinsic bias into the thing that might suggest a product for you that would be inadvertently anisim sexism ageism racism or whatever and it wasn't that the coder decided to be racist. It's just that we picked up ambient racism and we baked it into our ai. now product was shipped. Me that is offensive or Even now when when facebook will remind you of a of an anniversary we've seen many people be reminded of the death of a child or the death of a family member while facebook was just trying to do the right thing. That's where you bring ethics into all this and becomes very squishy it. It's very gray. There is no black and white right technology.

They also have potential to destroy the world they also have great potential for us understanding our universe and in gaining all this knowledge everything has two sides. It's all yang so when we're looking at this new technology coming the the real concern i have is that it takes it to a whole new level like it amplifies all these things that are potentially negative society for example we know we have racism in our society. We know it exists and people have biases that they aren't even conscious that they're acting upon. But yes the. I could literally take over. And because it's just raw data what people how people think how they view the world how they act those biases could then be replicated by the the on a much larger more systematic scale and we have to be careful in cognizant of that. Is that a solvable problem. Yes that those problems are solvable. What i'm a little more concerned about our are much more difficult problems to solve.

"hoff" Discussed on Set Lusting Bruce: The Springsteen Podcast
"I didn't know if because of how often you've seen them in how you're you're very passionate and the connections you have. I didn't know if they were some of the ban they go. Oh yeah that's Lisa. Well certainly the disciples of soul. Okay that have just been on the road. Certainly they recognize me. Certainly I mean Eddie manion. I wouldn't call him a friend but he somebody who points me out every show. He you know and I actually became friends with Clark. Gayton who is so underrated and so incredibly talented. He plays around in New York in all different incarnations of music from big bands to reggae a super talented guy. And Really Nice. But again you know Anthony El Monte the disciples of soul definitely know who I am at this point because I went to so many shows when they went back on the road I never in my wildest dreams thought that they would ever you know I thought that was over. Steve went back with the band. And you know it was a one off initially and then they started to tour and so did I. Yeah it was it was. I was really lucky enough. They were coming to Dallas and on twitter. Little Stevens said at the hard rock cafe in downtown Dallas. I'm going to do an impromptu You know garage band and so we got there early. The ban started doing there And I saw Eddie and like hey can I take your picture you know and and And then little even came took pictures with all of this was very kind and then they ended up. There was a birthday party there so they wouldn let him do his. Dj thing so they just ended up eating and leaving. You know but it was like okay. I got my picture taken with them. That's you know I now have meals. I have little steven you know on my Bingo card of Admit I. I've got a picture of me and Bruce from Saint Paul. Yeah we flew out for the first couple of shows of the born in the USA tour and the daytime of the second night. We were just shopping in the mall. And there was bruce and my friend had one picture left on one of those member those disc cameras with the round film. He had one picture left and he snapped a picture of me. Bruce and I have on my born in the USA shirt and ironically in the background Was Jimmy mcduffie. Who did his security at that time? Fast forward to about Oh two thousand eight. I guess maybe two thousand nine. My cousin was going to school in Staten Island younger shoes in college and she got snowed to where they couldn't get the ferry back to school and she came with a couple of friends to spend the night in my apartment and her friend is very plugged in. Apparently Jimmy mcduffie is her godfather and she just casually mentioned it and I pulled out the picture and I said Oh this Jimmy McAfee and she fell over. 'cause he's in the background of the picture. Whose name Bruce Centers. She wasn't even born yet. The my picture was When for the autobiography You know he did the first round. Were all you know east coast than just maybe one or two in California West Coast and then they did a second round and there was one in Austin and I drove down and got my six seconds with him and so I have the picture of us at the book signing in where I got to tell him. You know how much better days and land of hope and dreams meant to me. As I've told the story a hundred times I don't think he heard it but I needed to say it more than I needed him to hear it If that makes sense Oh absolutely. Yeah so that. That's that's very cool. The you've been very vocal about some of the music but is is there any thing particular songs or albums that we haven't touched on that has a special place in your heart. Well there's a couple would have to say first of all when the ties that bind came out that to me. That was a dream come true because I had been chasing. That music might entire life. Bootlegs were hard to come by some of the songs I knew some had been released. Some were played by other people but essentially it was just as the you know the heavens opened up and drop this record on me on that side. I look at my favorites change. You Know How could I how could I be a Bruce Fan and not save one? Two run is my favorite record. You know what I mean but well I love East reshuffle. I in you know I have a good friend Sam and Salmon. I talk all the time and we. We always benching with with without malice. We go okay. You're doing be the boss on East Street radio. Why don't pick thunder? Road is one of your five songs. Of course. Thunder road means the world to you? Thunder road means the world to all of us. You know right and so I kinda that same thing when I say. Land of hope. Juries are better. Days are my favorite songs. But that's also. I'm not giving short to Rosetta or thunder road or born to run. You know or the rising I completely understand. I mean it is there are there. There are an and I talk about this often. It's ever changing in also. I think that is. That's where the title of this podcast came from. Is that when you're not at a show? And he plays a song that you would have loved to hear live you stop set listing and you start. Set lusting right. So that's where the title came from so for me the one song that I've never heard him play that I wish I could hear perfectly because I was just the question I was going to ask you. Okay well for me. It is e street shuffle. Wow Okay I've never heard them. And ironically when they were at the end of the two thousand nine tour and playing whole albums I already had tickets and ended up at the river. Show not that. I was disappointed but I had seen. Dozens of river shows dozens back in the day back in the day front but not from start to finish never have which was a treat but the night before my stepbrother had tickets and he d e street shuffle the whole album but he already made a commitment to a friend who was as big. A fan is the rest of us to go that night and he tells the story that before they started to play. His friend leaned over and said well. What do you think he'll open with and he said I don't know Funda crack and that's what he opened with. But I you know again that I would have traded at least a dozen shows to have seen that night. That's five is taking. My son was too too much. But you know. I'm very grateful that I took my son to the magic tour. And so he got to see Clarence which was a big thing and I have to tell you as a fan after he passed. I couldn't see the band. It took me a took me until the river tour in. So so you didn't go to wrecking ball or did not. I did not and I loved the records but I just couldn't bring myself to see a show without Clarence I. I understand that I you know I could see that It was devastating. Yeah and you know and I think they handled it. Well a little weird you know. Losing Danny was certainly tough. But Clarence was such a presence in. Bruce in his friendship was so epic on stage. Not that they all aren't friends and brothers off stage on stage so yeah it was really weird and It was devastating. I remember I I ended up I had Sirius Xm. But I didn't have the the online version of were were. You could play it anywhere from a computer and I ended up buying it and I said at my computer listening to the replay of the Special Apollo show. You know. And that's the first time he did that. Are we missing anybody and even telling the story now? Lisa I had tears in the science just pulled a Tissue Guy. Because are we missing anybody and it just is so and and. I still stand by that. You know if you're here and we are here they're here and I think about that when I'm going to family get togethers where our grandparents aren't there or my dad isn't there and I. I always think that while we're here they're here you know if if you're here we're here than they are here and that presence is such and I believe losing clearance and then losing David Bowie and Glenn Fry and then prince but even especially bowie before the river tour of two thousand sixteen. I think that is one of the reasons why they had such a joy playing together because in my mind they all go. The the road in front of us is shorter than the row behind us. We have no. We have nothing guaranteed of how many more times we are going to get to play together and I say with coats play because it is a job for them but it also. They are playing music they are. There is such a joy of them performing together and I think they were incredibly strong. That tour I think they showed their their love and and the greatness of the band but there was such A. We are so grateful that we are having not final victory lap for we are having this ability to do this again at this point darker. I will agree with that completely. And it's interesting because as. I said I couldn't really bring my couldn't bring myself to go but I did and right off the bat I said Jake is playing Clarence Horns. There is no doubt in my mind that he playing his horns. This only you know he learned the Solos but I met somebody in the parking lot who had never seen a brick shell okay and that was his first show and after the show we will park next to each other and I personally would have preferred. I thought I was going to see the outtakes. Frankly I didn't realize they were playing the whole album again. It was great but I kind of Said something like Gee I wish I could have picked that set list and I remember him saying you something like Oh my God. That was like the greatest show I ever saw in my life bar. None and I said you have just seen the greatest show on earth no doubt about it but I guess I'm a little bit jaded Having been a fan for so long and seeing so many shows that were just epic shows. I can remember on the river tour. I was already a big St Fan and almost being annoyed if I was on the Clarence side not annoy. Oh Dang it you know but what I wouldn't do to be able to see him play in front of me from the fourth row. You know it was a devastating loss musically for the band I can't imagine what their friendships with the loss. Must've been to them when I only I cried two or three times. I was lucky enough to get a show to get a ticket on Broadway. And even luckier. My wife said yes. We have no business spending the money. But we're GonNa let you go. Yes and and.
