Plans have now been shelled for the city on vancouver island to host a virtual candidate a celebration. The decision came after a unanimous. Vote by victoria city council. Instead officials say they will create a broadcast focused on the larger canadian history with guidance from local first nations. The broadcast will be released later in the summer. And focus on what it means to be canadian. Here's victoria mayor. Lisa helps right now. the likud nations are grieving And so it's very difficult for them to come and sing and dance and celebrate context change when those two hundred and fifteen children's bodies were discovered and and they are reeling and everybody is reeling. And so we're all just doing our best to figure out how to move forward. Some residents of vancouver island agree with the decision saying it might be best to cancel the celebrations this year and instead remember all residential school survivors and the victims. There have been similar calls across the country to cancel the national holiday celebrations. Many first nations held ceremonies to honor the two hundred fifteen children whose remains were discovered in may at the site of the former kamloops residential school for national native news.

Jammers is on the ground in geneva and now and a lot of people watching this especially the putin part of the equation. Yeah absolutely. That's all coming later in the week. Becky and what we're looking at now is the transition between the diplomatic piece of this trip over the weekend with the g. seven and now the president has just arrived at nato headquarters in brussels. Were just a few seconds ago. He was meeting with jen soltenberg. The nato secretary general discussing the military alliance with the united states and europe so important military developments there over the weekend at the g seven. They agreed to some important items at the g. Seven was very much about. Who wasn't there as much as it was about the seven nations. Who were there. A lot of the focus on china. Russia and of course former president. Donald trump's absence was noted particularly. Take a look at some of the takeaways from the g. Seven as you look at the agreement here to provide eight hundred seventy million vaccine doses directly to poorer countries over the next year. They agreed to endorse a global minimum tax. They agreed to urgently identify and disrupt ransomware criminal networks. They called on china to respect human rights fundamental freedoms in hong kong's autonomy and they reaffirmed call on russia to stop its destabilizing behavior. The message from president biden was that this is a turn away from the america first priorities of his predecessor. More toward an american engagement with the world. Here's what he said. The lack of participation in the past and full engagement was noticed significantly. Not only by the leaders of those countries but by the people in the g seven countries and america's back in the business of leading the world alongside nations who share our most deeply held values

Id like to become a professional complaint coach

"United airlines canceled a flight. I was on then tried to revoke me on an itinerary that would require a four eight am trip to the airport and an extra connection. I escalated the complaint. After talking to a manager i got it down to one connection at a reasonable time and a voucher for two hundred dollars by hadn't spoken up. I would have been out of luck. It wasn't that hard but lots of people don't know what to say or how to be what i call politely assertive. I'd like to brand myself as the complaint coach and help people get what they deserve from large companies especially when something goes wrong. Do you have any tips or advice. Thanks politely assertive. I love that hitting that in a nutshell is great takeaway less than for somebody. Who's like how do i properly complain when something goes wrong on my next flight or something. You are politely assertive. So bonus lesson there. Thank you for that tom. Now as for the business potential. I totally agree as mentioned that people do not know how to properly complain especially to big companies. They tend to get very emotional and point out lots and lots of different issues without really focusing on. What is the core issue. Where did this company let me down. And also what seems like a fair remedy for that experience so these big retail companies beat ac- companies. They have entire departments focused on recovery or customer experience or the art of making good when something goes wrong. So how can tom turn this into a service. I think it needs to be really simple. It can't be a twenty four module. Six class people need to get results quickly. Also as a business model you know people who work as negotiators trying to lower the cost of large bills like in the medical world. But that's a bit different because helping people get two hundred dollar vouchers on flights. I mean that's awesome. That's valuable but if you earn a on that which is how that works in the world of medical bill negotiation. It's kind of a lot of work for a relatively small amount of money. Like you're saving somebody two hundred dollars but you're going to get you know five to ten percent of that probably not a great business model so i like the idea of one of these. Two approaches. tom as the complaint coach sells a quick and dirty informational product. That probably sells for like thirty nine dollars. Thirty nine to seventy nine dollars somewhere in that range and it's just like here's what you need to know to get what you want. The second option would be a half hour consultation. In which tom guarantees his service will have positive results so somebody's having a difficult situation he's like i'm going to talk you through. I'll tell you exactly what to say. I'll tell you who to ask for how to respond when they say certain things and so on and because this is a consultation has to cost more so this is something like one hundred dollars to two hundred and twenty

Just put it in perspective. Hundreds of millions of lines of code. That's how many lines of code there are in windows. it's that it's on. that level of sophistication. I'm sure i've been talking about this all along. But it's kind of stunning and it's relevant right now because it according to analysts. The chip shortage global chip shortage is being felt everywhere but it's especially being felt in kars four point one million autos won't be made this year because they can't get the chips that's a lot. Ten years ago only only fancy cars had microprocessor control units. Today fancy fancy. Cars like the bmw. Seven series may contain one hundred fifty electronic control units pickup trucks like the ford f. One fifty one hundred fifty million lines of code as of twenty seventeen. Some forty percent of the cost of a new car can be attributed to semi conductors. The cost is doubled in ten years and they think by By the end of this decade. It'll be fifty percent. Each new car today has about six hundred dollars semi conductors. Three thousand chips in it. So it's no surprise. I mean your steering is controlled by a chip.

The Migration of the Monarch Butterfly

"On the show today. Migration there are many hundreds if not thousands of species of birds that migrate. there's caribou across canada wildebeest in africa. There are migratory fish like salmon and also a lot of marine animals migrate long distances like sea turtles and whales. But right now. Let's turn our attention to the humble but tenacious monarch butterfly. I think of monarchs is the tanks of the butterfly world. so they're small they way only a half a gram but they can travel thousands of kilometers in the wild. This is sonia. All tyzzer many colleges at the university of georgia so i study the ecology of animal migration and sonya says monarch butterflies are different because their migration is multi generational so the same monarch never makes the journey twice. It's their grand offspring and great grand offspring of the migratory generation that will migrate again the following year sonya's specifically talking about a migration path east of the rocky mountains. These monarchs travel thousands of miles across international borders every year. Ecologists think they're looking for the precious milkweed clamped in arguably the most important driver for them is food and especially milkweed plants where the females can lay their eggs. Another reason why they migrate is to ride out the winter in the sierra madre mountains near mexico city

What Happens When Hidden Histories Become a National Conversation?

"At the end of may. When news broke that the remains of more than two hundred children had been found at the kamloops indian residential school. It was news to many canadians. Who learning about the history of residential schools and the role. The canadian government played in the creation. It seemed to mark a new sense of awareness across the country in indigenous communities. Grief came quickly but not shock and not surprise. These types of losses are well known in our nation's and in our families and in real time we watch the rest of the country feel the depths of this history daniel heath justice is a colorado born citizen of the cherokee nation and he's an author and professor of critical indigenous studies and english at the university of british columbia. He joins me now to talk about what happens when hidden histories come to light daniel. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me. We're talking about hidden histories on the show today and for me the idea of hidden histories is interesting. Because they're not hidden for everyone up until a few years ago when unreserved would would air story about residential schools. We'd get emails from people telling us that they had never heard of this before the show for sharing this information and that's a luxury indigenous people don't share. It's in our families. It's it's part of our history. How do you think so much of this. History hasn't made its way out of our communities. I struggle with that question. I think there is a sense in many ways that this is only about indigenous people rather than being very much about settler colonial canada. I think there is a sense for a lot of people that when we say school. We mean an educational facility which these were not. I mean these were re education and torture camps. I think we have to start naming them for what they were. I think non-indigenous people Just tune out because the the level of the horror if they had to face it would radically transformed their feelings about the country that they live in if they honestly address that

Brown hosts public television travel series places to love where she films from destinations. Both around the world in closer to home. She joins us today on travel. With rick steves to look at some of her favorite places to find a bit of europe. In america samantha. Thanks for joining us. Pleasure to be here rank. Boy know all i do is go to europe again and again and again but i really. There's a lot of europe hiding out here in the united states during covid lockdown times so we can't travel overseas like we'd like to but we can find little knockoffs here in the united states from all around the globe knockoffs because some of them are terrific kind of constructions and others are honest to goodness immigrant communities. That are still the way they were hundred and fifty years ago when they were there were settled just in my state washington. We've got leavenworth which is a famous little german. It's kind of a touristy. Gimmick but poulsbo is originally a norwegian town and its norwegian to this day and we have linden up by the canadian border which is a very dutch was settled by holland immigrants. What are your favorite slices of europe in america. Well one of my favorites is a city that i had gone to my entire life. My family Was brought up right outside of it and then after doing two years of europe came back to and it just hit me like a ton of bricks that this was a european city and that is philadelphia pennsylvania. It is by far the most for me. The most year of paean city in the united states and so then i started like do a deep dive like why is it so it was just a feeling i had like. Wow i just feel like. I'm in europe. And there were so many connections One of the main architects was an emigrant from leon france. He designed the ben. Franklin benjamin franklin parkway which is now. We're all the museums are lined. And he designed that off of the sean z z. and along this beautiful roadway parkway where they're abuse. There's the rodin museum. there's the philadelphia museum of art. Which has the largest collection of renoir in the world. Incredible and others rittenhouse square. They're all these not just pockets. Because i think you know there's places we'll talk about today the have pockets but this is a city that is just so of france and the best connection that i love about philadelphia is that it is also it has the most mural arts i think in the world and its sister city is leon so if you ever go to leeann france and the kuala rouge is where you see those phenomenal murals and that art that is available to all end. It's all over the city. That's what the to share so the city a definite of brotherly love is a great. If you want that. European and more specifically french you know kick

Jailbreak Jamboree!

"Story. I'm calling the jailbreak. Jamboree see what you did there so my past few stories have been pretty heavy lately so this week i wanted to break the pattern. You know break out of these heavy stories into something bit more fun ridiculous freak out of prison. Maybe yeah now speaking of ridiculous. So today i'm gonna tell you about some of the most daring and crazy prison escapes. I could find no goal so our first one actually. This comes from to us. From japan. So in japan the meiji era which span from eighteen. Sixty eight to nineteen twelve was considered one of the more harsher periods for prisoner. Oh pretty terrible. From what i read i got you got to remember too that that is harsh when you're picking from flavors of harsh is through. That is true. Nobody wants to be in jail meeting hundred now so it turns out. Escape was actually a lot more common back then out so in eighteen. Eighty one a record number of convicts eighteen hundred and twenty one. The year that many people were able to successfully get away from incarceration to escape their harsh terrible sentences. They couldn't find sixty more friends to make. It super pneumatic. Elevate would have made it so much better Come on guys but no other man. History has shown such disdain for incarceration yoshi. She retorted known as the most famous escapee in japan of all times. Who is tagged as quote the man but no prison could hold. Oh i mean if you're gonna get like a prison rep. Nickname seems like good one. Not too bad. It beats pin cushion. Mcgeehan sounds worse so she successfully escaped the japanese prison system four times. Oh wow yeah. Quite a few. You don't do that by accident. And do so. yoshi. I worked as a tofu shop. And then he was later. A fisherman that caught crabs and russia and after failing more businesses several more times. He became known for his addictive gambling and stealing. Oh yeah. I know a lot of people that are addicted to gambling and stealing and want to get crowds. In russia. one of them became the president. Oh that's true so you'll she was initially accused of murder and robbery and sentenced to amaury prison three years later. He picked the lock of his handcuffs with a short wire. He found from a wooden bathing bucket and left sparky the cleaning bucket up so one of his first big promises that he was originally accused of murder and robbery. And that's not great. He did totally probably robbed. People need it. You definitely definitely did the thievery. And maybe did the mercury.

Dave Ramsey vs EXP Realty

"Versus exp and then in men kind of run flee refers to Ramsey company is a coaching company, which it's not. It's basically for the sake of the ELP program. It's a lead selling company. We again, we talked about this yesterday but anyway, in man comes around there, you know, figures the soldier out there, writing this article. It's basically what we talked to you guys about yesterday. There's no real new information as far as the who's in the what's in the wise. But I will tell you what really is surprising to me. As I read this article wage, That Dave Ramsey and I already knew this obviously but they just summarily said we're not doing business with the XP agents any more. Not exp did not have any sort of Enterprise corporate level relationship with Dave Ramsey. Dave basically decided to just sort of get rid of his his I'm sorry, his exp agents no matter how well they've been performing as an ELP and this, obviously, it just seems to be really bizarre. I mean, why would he just summarily get rid of all the EXP agents that are even the most successful in this e l p program? If his whole point of his e l p program is to provide the best service for His Radio listeners in his book purchasers and all the people that follow us advice, I mean ultimately when you and it's fascinating again as you read this article, especially the comments on em and it's really fascinating how far out of Integrity. A lot of agents are perceiving Dave Ramsey to be especially when it's routed back to his Christian values that he definitely leads with wage. And again, if you haven't read this article, definitely read it's called Ramsay versus exp. But I'll tell you, the real punch line here is there's, it looks like there was only a couple of hundred maybe maybe three hundred maximum exp agents off of the ELP program, you know, 57,000 exp agent. So this really is just barely a blip on the radar. But really, I enjoyed reading and I was I was honestly proud of all the agents that were, the agents are interviewed and it was Agents from all different brokerages as agents from all different brands. It wasn't just a bunch of exp ages piling on trying to defend exp, wasn't even mad at all.

Jon Levy - How to Build Deeper Connections with Anyone

"So let's dive in by understanding a little bit about why human connection is so important we all know. It's important intuitively. Can you put some words around it for us. Oh for sure. So i'll just start off by saying i grew up. Pretty lonely was super kid. And i didn't really quite fit in. This was like before you could actually have cool geeks now. Everybody likes marvel superheroes back then. It was me and like three other kids in my school. So the weird thing is. I thought that that was like a unique experience. Because i would see shows on television where like everybody was hanging out and everybody had friends. Even the geeks and as i was researching my new book. You're invited. I came across something pretty startling in one thousand nine hundred eighty five the average american had just about three close friends besides family by two thousand four must in a generation later. We were down to just about to so nineteen years. We lost a third of our close social ties besides family and that is terrifying terrifying for two reasons. One is that we'd like to blame things. Like social media and technology the real culprit is probably people moving more for work or after school and it resets their social ties but now that trend is probably progressed and with the pandemic and people being locked in their homes and avoiding physical contact. That numbers probably even lower and for me. The most concerning thing about that is that research. From brigham young looked at what are the actual greatest predictors of human long jetty especially the ones that are in our control and after genetics. Which we can't really control for and i'm meeting meaningful way. At least not yet to is close social ties of close friends or family and number one is social integration which is essentially measured by the number of social contact. You have throughout the day

Us went up two nothing In that game and freddie was one of the best us players on the field and this was twenty eleven. And it's part of this history. That freddie had where he would show these real flashes of what that promise we thought would lead to playing for the us national team. The soccer tournaments. You mentioned the other twenty world cup in seven. He had a hat trick in that tournament. It was a us team to beat. Brazil had michael bradley. Josie altidore en-. That's the tournament that got bin fica and portugal to pay a two million dollar transfer fee for freddie and he arrives then fica the same time as dobbin louise and on held de maria who would go onto the biggest clubs. In freddie's first season there he was basically like one of those guys. He wasn't back and then he goes out on loan starting the next season and that's when things started to get bad because he would see freddy. Do these really positive things. In the summer tournaments with the us and then he couldn't establish himself with any consistency at the club level in that became a question for me with a lot of interviewees for this series of like why was that the case and they felt like he had more discipline when he was in a camp environment for a for a short tournament with. Us that a disciplined that he lost when he was playing at club level. There are plenty of prodigy's that start playing soccer. And going to talent cavs going i m g academies at age eleven for the most part you look at the i team. That's pretty much everybody story at some of the top clubs along european or an across globe and he had a very solid career. There guys that you know if they are you telling me. I'm scoring a i'm playing in the gold cup final for my country and i'm one of the best players for it and i had all these high expectations for many players. Like if i'm mixed disagreed for for example i'm kicking my heels up and saying i had a damn good career but because of all the was put on him it ends up being a cautionary tale. Very i feel for. I feel for freddy adu and i really hope. I really hope it's sad story for him. It's one of optimism. I don't think it is for him. And we had people like mike. Pecci is former dc. United team-mate leaves. Mls actually owed freddie that he thinks last she higher freddie to work with young players teenagers and talk to them about making the adjustment to becoming a professional in sort of be part of an orientation process which i think would be a good use of of wet. Freddie does in what he experienced when he knows he's a great communicator. Always a good thing on rent jumps off in. It jumps off the headphones that he has a story. That could resonate with america's youth. And i really hope. I know he's still trying to play in the professional ranks but i hope as a pivot in his neck sep he could apply some of his life lessons because he leaned on plenty of older mentors to this day keeps in touch with them and i really hope he can see. That would be really nice sort of jedi type of story for for freddie a to continue his career and help the continued growth and development. I don't think his contribution to the us men's soccer team or over by any stretch of imagination. I really hope there's a lane for him there exist. I think it's possible grant. I can't say enough.

"Became a free agent in april and was no longer at sports illustrated at it was during a pandemic and and so i connected with a former producer. Nick perry swerve out. Who had actually bennett. Sports illustrated had chosen to leave for this podcast company. Blue wire and they were looking for projects. And i a year ago. Done a podcast series with harry on the origin story of the us women's national soccer team and the women's world cup tournament. The turned out really well. And so i kissed this and everyone blue i was like. Let's do it. And then it became this real labor of love of trying to get all these two dozen people to speak to me. Adding freddie say no and then pause and being like do i think i can get freddie eventually because if i'm being honest if this series had come out and freddie hadn't spoken to me i would have been really disappointed and trying to put a happy face on me talking to you right now. The probably wouldn't have been totally honest and it so i took a risk and got him eventually. And now i feel like this is a complete story until good about this the defining story. He did the beckham experiment which Prior to my laser surgery last book that i read cover to cover now. Joe go strictly audiobooks because it just sykes my eyes out a little bit. But i imagine the process is similar. Only this time you have to worry about the production element to i. It's one thing to get somebody on the phone. Jot down a couple of notes and craft your story in post and you have time. Maybe you add certain inflections and and you provide a little bit more color to what happened but in an audio format it rides on captivating. These speakers aren't how well the production is. How involved are you in the overall production aspect of it. Because that's also stressful. Imagine or just the pursuit of good audio quality and also doing real in depth interviews of an hour or in some cases. Two hours length with people about you know pretty sensitive topics in in some ways During a pandemic that's not easy like the podcast series that we've done a year ago. We had hired people on the ground. To to be with the interviewee to get the good audio quality is not like we had travel budget or even able to travel to the virus and so like a lot of hoops. Were jumped through. To make to send microphones to each interviewee to get the best audio possible. And then it came down to sort of using the relationships. I've developed over the last twenty five years to get people to talk. And i was really gratified it appreciate their willingness to do that because i think for a lotta people is these relationships. I've had for a long time. They saw what had happened with the sports illustrated and they were like this. Is grant's first. big project. hosts were illustrated in. Let's try and make this something really really good. I can't tell you how much i appreciate that too. It's really good. And i think you're judged against you know how lebron was judge against jordan. I am guilty of this too in. I'm probably almost certain you've already heard this. But the gold standard to me in this type of storytelling. Especially when it comes to soccer is american fiasco either. Roger bennett did such a brilliant job covering that ninety eight. Men's team zad where you sort of chasing that as the gold standard did you take cues from that. Because i think that sort of set a template is added. Do these things in terms of soccer storytelling. You know that was a really good series end. Just the story itself. Yeah having followed that you would be really good and he handled it well. You know a had. The experience of the series on the women's team that i did a year ago and and so that guy dig a lot of what we were doing with this freddy adu series and i sort of wanted to approach it a little bit the way. The maradonna documentary was was organized last year by c. kapadia which was done so well they chose instead looking at maradona's entire career just to look at his napoli years from eighty four to ninety and for this freddie ado series. I didn't really want to give a ridiculous amount of time to the the dozen or clubs that he went in and out of over the last ten years because that became sort of a repetitive story. Unfortunately in so we devoted a lot of this series. The i you know. Three to four episodes to the excitement days around freddie ado in we'll obviously get to the to the not making it part. Try to answer the questions. Why but back had an impact on how we organize this. I'm fascinated to find out what happened when he fell out of the. I m watching. You know las vegas lights games. I'm like is that is that is pretty ado. A tampa bay. Rowdies are so many interesting points in his career and he he instantly in many of these clubs is the most famous person whether it's because he's a cautionary tale because he was sharing sl covers with pele for better or worse he enters a room still did his day at thirty one. Years old is often the most infamous and famous person. Any then have ever known as. I'm sure you've got to spoke to a a lot of teammates on the lower end of his soccer career. And i'm sure it's just wild for them because here is freddie. Do i've been hearing about this guy for twenty years. Addison not the player that he wants. And you know. He's with las vegas lights second-division us l. team In two thousand eighteen and in twenty nineteen early on that year. He's cut they don't extend his contract and it was interesting to me. I spoke to eric. Wynalda who was the coach of the las vegas team. Who cut freddie. And eric has had this kind of zely like role in freddie's career. From the start where was the. Espn commentator on abc for his first game. back no four. At the time he was consulting for this. Hollywood feature film that phil and shoots who six teams was was producing has hollywood studio with david and spa the director of all these great sports films and they had eric was hired a consultant in told that he had to integrate freddie of do into the movie about the nineteen fifty. Us world cup team and just talking about how ridiculous that kind of was but like i there was there was this whole cultural thing at the time and they got ready to the movie in the rubicon tanked and an eric was there for so much of of these things and so interesting kind of get his perspective. He didn't realize he was the last coach to to cut. Freddie do maybe. He's not now that freddie two years later is gonna start playing professionally again if i could gig out for a moment to. I'm really interested in the other part of it. The second half of his career were looked like he was actually going. Come back remember. There was a world cup that that he was in the mix for there he he was making contributions in his twenties. He looked like okay. He may not be the greatest american soccer player. But that won't stop them from being a very good professional. soccer player. Looked like it was within reach for at least a good contributor on..

"Known about freddie and so i'm really happy to hear that he lent his voice and and i hope throughout the episodes. He finds some peace because life's all about managing expectations. He is synonymous with disappointment. And is so unfair. Because in what is hey as a little kid. I was playing soccer in alleys dirt fields and getting my feet cut up by glasses. And i come to america but i'm the man of the house at eight years old and thirteen meeting palay signing a million dollar contract with nike cut is a success. Shut the book that is amazing but he has to deal with all these unfair. Perhaps and maybe you had a hand in that expectations and we'll get to your whole conflict in doing this. It's a success unmitigated. Success not up for debate. And i really hope. He grabs onto some of the positives here. I hope there's a happy ending in this. This is one of the most interesting parts of this whole series for me. Is i think most people would assume that. Freddie is a sad story and if you talk to freddy himself and you talk to the people who are around him today. They're like he's not a sad story at all and he's not bitter and he's still very positive about still getting the chance to play soccer again somewhere because he loves the sport and there's something inspirational to me about all of that and so i think that comes through the series goes on were yes. It's disappointing that freddie didn't become the first us men's soccer superstar globally and yet that doesn't change the fact that he came with his family from ghana to the us. They won the immigration lottery long before anyone who live out his soccer playing. And it's a sort of american dream story and this guy. Freddie still says like the house that i bought from my mom in maryland she still lives in and she hasn't had to work a day in her life since then after working two three jobs at a time as a single mother for kids before freddie five first deals and freddie like that's what i'm most proud of my entire life and that's not ever gonna change. I'm really looking forward to learning more about the human because he's become a cautionary tale when you could so make the argument he. He's an inspiration. Let's talk about you. Because i imagine you probably in doing this. And i want to talk to you. Also about the massive undertaking that doing a project. Like this actually is i. It seems as though it says arduous writing a book only for an audio format. But what did you learn about yourself in doing this. And coming to grips and reconciling with your role in the hype train. I mean i approached. My friend had do stories in three and four similarly to how i approach To which was to try and talk to as many respected people in the business as possible. Who had seen him play and make sure that they actually thought he could the really really good like there's so there's a reason to do this story. And then including caveats about why they may not make it in so trying to be responsible in how you approach writing a like that. So i didn't say anywhere like the next palay around freddie ado now that said that two thousand. Four sports illustrated story had a big picture of freddie impaled as arms because they literally did a commercial together. So that sets the expectation. Even if i'm not saying it and so we'll also grant. If i if i may there's also a huge gulf between and freddie says is there's a gulf between a fourteen year old and eleven year old the gulf between a seventeen year old grown ass man lebron james and thirteen fourteen year old infringe. Do also not just from a physical standpoint but everything that goes along with it. It probably gave you a little bit more pause. No yeah definitely. I mean like fourteen is very different from seventeen and and i know there's people out there who were like freddie wasn't that age and i did ask all of the people i interviewed on this. Do you think fred was the age. He said he was back. Then and what was interesting in. This comes up in a later. Episode is most people actually said. Yes i think he was. Fourteen like people who are on dc united with teammates in four. They're like he acted like a fourteen year old like that. There were some who took different standpoints on that which will will come out in the series but that was also part of the reason for the excitement right that this a fourteen year olds. I think that's part of what nike saw. I remember talking to phil knight. The founder and ceo nike back four in literally quoting him saying freddie could be bigger than lebron bigger than tiger woods. Bigger than michael jordan were for their sports because he felt like freddie can take soccer to an entirely new level in the united states. And then phil knight added like. I hope. that doesn't put too much pressure. Really really absurd. And also. I still don't think even though freddie didn't exactly pan out certainly In terms of his pro career. I think phil knight was right to have that take at that moment soccer because of contributions from even guys like even though it didn't exactly pan out. Soccer is in a different place now than it was in two thousand four a better place. Even this is still on the heels of recently missing a world cup and god knows how far that set the program back. But if freddie do as a teenager was doing things in america's major league i think phil knight could have been right if he contributed the way that many people were expecting pretty to look. I mentioned this study. That was done on how much revenue freddie brought to. Mls dc united in terms of attendance for dc united games. Just two thousand four alone. He more than earns the five hundred thousand dollars a year. He was making so. There was a a real benefit in butts and seeds for mls by having freddie play at as a fourteen year old and so from an economic perspective. He did bring that and so like i. It's just crazy for me to go back and listen to some of the actual native audio from broadcast back in the day about how excited we were about freddie. Two thousand four. It's a great job tracking down that audio before. I wanna talk about the hardships of actually getting this project off the ground and getting bleier to sign off on it and then you actually have to put in the work without giving the game away. You spoke with ready. You have the face. Fac- record this podcast. You go through all the hardships and putting it together. Did you learn anything about yourself that you probably wouldn't have done. If you could travel back in time would you say. Hey don't do this after. I've worked on his project. I face maybe some a my mistakes. As i got older i stopped doing the next day thing stories for the most part are at least i did them a lot less frequently and was maybe more circumspect of you know like i covered christian pulisic when he broke through with dortmund at. I think he was sixteen. And we're starting to play for the i team. And you know we did make a big deal about it. In sports illustrated as we have with freddie ado in and with lebron and i think over the years i got a little more circumspect about things and in in change a Approached up to an extent. 'cause i mean like i was literally obsessed with prodigies once lebron took off and it'd be honest and say that impacted how much i covered pretty do back in three and four. I wrote like five magazine stories on. If i wrote a bunch of websites stories i was wanting to do a book on.

"You wanna be the biggest thing in america's league right now any thirteen year old on the planet would say give me that. He ran at that That opportunity how much did that contribute to. His ultimate disappointment on this international and club level was clear talking to fred in the people around him that he had bought into the expectations of being ad with palay on national television. All the time thirteen years and so his first year in mls he's fourteen started season. Turn fifteen and if you look at what he actually did pretty impressive for a fourteen fifteen year old scores. Five goals dc united wins the championship that season but freddie was disappointed at the end of the season because he hadn't been the leading goalscorer in league he had started every game. He was coming on a super sub in the play offs. And there is this desire for more playing time it became this running storyline for freddie his first couple years at dc united. It was a source of real tension between the team. I can't wait to discover that because my memories of freddie was the big. Abc highlight game on network television. Everyone wants to see sort of what appeared to be like a sideshow. Act at first so the stuff out of cinema. And then i was disappointed when he wasn't a regular part of the rotation and i sort of forgot about them until like the u seventeen world cup stage. I think he was on a pretty good team. That with michael bradley of all people they meet a good run and he actually resurface on the international level. But freddie actually lends his voice to this project. I want you to talk about the difficulty in actually getting freddy adu to do this because you can sort of one of my favorite storyline so far very early in this to people sorta hesitant coming to grips with their own responsibility and what ended up happening. I mean freddie. Said no the first time i asked him to participate in this podcast series and he said politely and it's a reasonable tape for him to have because on the one hand he's never spoken in detail before quite going point by point through his career and a lot of the stuff is painful for him because he didn't make it and so i respected his decision to say no in someone very close to him as youth coach. Who's he still close to said. I bet you a steak dinner. He will not speak to you at all for this. And and i was disappointed. But then i sorta bet on myself and and my podcast company blue wire said we're gonna. We're going to support you in doing this. Podcast with you get ready or not. And i felt like there was a decent chance if i need the two dozen people. I interviewed that eventually. Freddie would realize that this was going to go ahead whether he was part of it or not and eventually some people close to him said look. This is got to happen. It's in your interest to be part of it. And he changed his mind. And i really appreciate the people who made that pitch to him and it was great to reconnect and be had a ninety minute interview where i had the chance to ask him all these questions wanting to for a long time. And we're gonna do another one. 'cause we added a seventh episode. What's he signed with this lower level. Sweden which no one expected. So he's gonna play again and it's just a really interesting process. Because i knew freddie. I interviewed him a lot back in two thousand three. Two thousand four visited him in greece in twenty ten for a story when it was clear that he wasn't gonna make two thousand ten world cup team so ben hearted this journey with him and yet it wasn't a guarantee that he was going to participate in this on did to the season forgiving and to celebrate the start of the most joyous time of year draftkings the leader in one day fantasy sports is giving all users shot at their twenty.

"And actually there was. There are a lot of smart people saying this so it's not like they were just idiots. It's just the knobs. Don't always make financing. Always make it in that sport to for every i know in america freddie do is brain association with you know bust a hype surrounding a prospect but in europe freddie dues are a dime a dozen there so many next great thing so it's a little unfair because it was newfound expectations for sport. That many people were discovering ferdie. Do for so. Many people was the gambit into finally following. Mls so it added all this additional pressure that probably. I'm sure you get into it in the podcast contributed to what was actually on the surface. The unlikely scenario freddie do not paying out people talk about it. Like oh of course wouldn't pay out. That was not the case so many people thought this was the shirt fire lock of the century that he was going to be a great american soccer player. I mean in having gone through the lebron experience and even by the time. I was covering fred new year and a half later. The broncos already in as a rookie and we could see that he was gonna really good And freddie is different situation obviously in soccer america. Two thousand four was different. He said is today but like at the start of the. Oh four mls season. Fred is doing this national ad campaign on tv with palay and so these expectations were set for him just in how he was being presented and mls has twin six teams now but in two thousand four it only at ten teams. They had cut to florida teams in tampa miami. Bring up in memories. Yeah and we had such a great manager who ends up being freddie a dues manager percent. He's fusion up. Being freddie is sort of this do this savior figure for a desperate league in that played into the promotion of him as well like his first. Mls gain got an audience at like two million on abc. And it was freddy. Ado in dc. United against landon donovan. The defending champion san jose earthquakes but lander had actually achieved stuff. At that point he had been to the world cup quarterfinals two years earlier one. Ls championships and so freddie and yet to play a pro game and he was a story unlike anything this league ever seen. I'm sure you're gonna dive into it. Pretty heavily right now. I'm just listening to the early that are available to me. The question on my mind as happening because it seemed as though in episode one. The mistake seemed to me to be the decision to go play. First team football for dc united and instead of going to europe where they have these academy systems where they bring players along slowly. It all happened so much. So fast for freddie ado why couldn't he go into europe because in the early episodes you sort of highlight is the why there were sort of protections in place to prevent this. But i'm just sort of kicking and screaming that we we miss out on the next great american sensation in part because he wanted to stay home early. Feels like a freddie ado. Been the situation that christian pulisic giovanni rain that were in at workman while the world's top developers young soccer talent where those guys went over like fifteen they didn't have any media coverage was the fact that went into the dortmund system. Which did it stang and then suddenly a couple years. These guys were planned for the first team. Dortmund an had claiming champions league in. You wish that freddy ado had had that opportunity now. There's something in play here as well because in the early two thousands fever adopted a new rule which said that nobody under the age of eighteen could transfer to a different country and they did that for a good reason that rule was to prevent mainly african kids under the age of eighteen for being brought to european clubs discard it because they didn't make it and then ending up on the streets of european cities so there was a very human reason why safer instituted this rule and then giovanni raina and christian pulisic were able to get around that rule because they got. Eu passports thinks that their family past that they are viewed as europeans. Instead they were able to go at age fifteen which is a huge benefit for those players who were able to get the passports lino messy if his story went from argentina to barcelona at age thirteen before the rule came into place and was able to be part of barcelona assistant and became lionel messi. Very quickly so you wished ready. It had these opportunities. He there is at the time. Some questions about whether freddie could actually signed with the european team because he didn't have the you pass for wasn't eighteen but there was also a field that he could have potentially gotten around it and if he had been in the x program that would have been probably preferable to being thrust in front of the media in the us every week at age fourteen. If he wanted it it worked out. The clubs would have found a way. The player would have found a way but he wanted to stay home and not to bog down. But that actually a controversial rule because it seemed as though what benefited messy and pull a sick And gio raina It's not hard to identify. What the differences between those players and some of the players of african descent so it actually became a very controversial subject. But let's say what the decision of freddie because look you you tell a thirteen year old. Hey do you want to be on the training ground and spent four years developing and maybe in four years will call you up to the i team or do you wanna play now..

"Welcome everybody to miss right now. I know the books out on me whenever i decide to do. One of these mystery crates as opposed to the rest of that shaving. I know it's a bit of mystery right. That's a whole name but usually predictable. If i decide to do something self-indulgent on this properties. Because i wanna talk. Soccer and grant wall has become a friend in this industry for those that don't know grant wall through his time. At sports illustrated you can check multiple podcasts. That he's featured on. I'll get into his most reason but football with grant wall. He is america's most distinguished most legendary best soccer rider. I think grant this fair. Your america's greatest soccer rider. Some might call that the world's tallest middle person. Hey man i mean in your history. And i was reminded of this in american prodigy. The the great freddy do podcasts. That you have about now is you also wrote one of the most important. Sports illustrated stories ever One that's still talked about to these Ted a day. When people talk about lebron james being on the cover of as high at seventeen years old. They mentioned that often. They probably don't mention enough for your liking that it was written by grant wall that was byline because that's a story that every year now on the anniversary of it people put it out there and and that's cool and really of the way it's held up over the years. I think it has held up. But sometimes if i get compliments that lebrons story i tell my also wrote our your stories yearly well love the framework because in the podcast episode. One which is out now american prodigy. Check it out. could suffer. You're dealing with blue wire. You sort of say. Hey i was on this high trying to seek out these great prodigious american athletes the next big thing was a sensational story and was well received from the moment that you put it out and it's only gotten bigger the lebron james sawyer. So you were sort of chasing that high with the freddy adu story where you not. I'm being honest in part of this. Freddy adu series is me taking a look at my own role and and what. The media's role is with this sort of cultural obsession that we have with the potential for athletic genius in young people. And i mean i was kind of on the prodigy. Be back in the early. Two thousands of sports illustrated and lebron story was part of that. And i think you know that was a couple years after tiger woods said had come out and you're talking about michelle we and golf and freddy adu and there. It was really heightened. I think at that point. And there's kind of a long tradition of this to like if you go back to the nineteen sixties. i remember. Sports illustrated put rick mount now. High school basketball player from indiana on the cover and whether it's sports illustrated or even outside of sports with rolling stone or vanity fair like part of the magazine industry over the years is wanting to to break out new start to eating kind of create new stars and and that's tradition. Now part of it is that sometimes. That doesn't make it. And and so as a journalist i've grappled with that over the years i when we put the brought on the cover party this popping because a writer always gets excited for a cover story. But he didn't add party was like are. We gonna ruin this kid's life now because this is going to change his life and i think it's kind of silly to sometimes people in the media act like don't have an impact simply by covering somebody are putting them on the covers. Its illustrated what then comes for the person who's on the cover that be really positive like lebron in that story not too i was like oh he could get a twenty million dollar studio. You got eighty million dollars. Shoot the in less than a year later and so there's a positive that comes with that and i do think part of part of becoming a superstar dealing with the media crush and even unnatural expectations but part of my interview with freddy. Adu for this series was asking him. Do you you an apology for how i presented you to the public. The impact that had on you. I really liked to explore that now. Some might be critical and say well. That's a little self indulgent. You're making it about yourself but as look you have in your history the gold standard for getting it right for every sl cover an embarrassing photo session. That's america's next big sporting thing. Most of those end up being wrong into being rick. Maier end up being lebron james. You actually had the one that looked like it was going to be right from the get go and you take that and you apply your focus to freddy adu. Who seemed like a can't miss product. My experience in watching freddie. Do if i can make it about myself now. is that he burst onto the scene with these united. I didn't know all the backstory and really that he had the bona fides it kind of felt like a rookie of the year type scenario for me. I didn't really understand but this was a player. That was outshining players for years older than him on the international stage in new provided a context that even people in the know was hard to apply at the time because he was doing things in tournaments that were so hard to find grant. Yeah i mean. I went to finland in two thousand and three for the seventeen world championship. Freddie was the youngest player in the tournament was fourteen years old. And in his first game at a hattrick against south korea and including the first goal which was this fifty yard. slalom run. Where you were in the stadium your dislike everyone. I remember that day was like holy smokes like this kid is the real thing and i was sitting next to a prayer league scout up in the stands need like this kid's that'd be the best player in the world sunday and and there were real smart people really respected people back then who really thought. This was a possibility for freddie. Do i think one thing that i got from doing this series and interviewing a bunch of folks was that it's tempting now the freddie. You didn't make it to say oh. Everyone was an idiot. Back dan in saying that he could be the biggest thing in american soccer like the first man soccer superstar true superstar from the united states..

"Newsradio twelve hundred second station. A. So we're talking to Samantha Sullivan. She's a content and digital marketing manager of blaze TV, one of the most impressive twentysomethings. I have met coming through the blaze and shocking to me that she said, and she wrote in an op Ed this weekend at the at the blaze that she lost her faith for a while. Because you're actually right almost rob me, and my faith, but you right in there. You're you're eighteen years old when this happens in at the right later on eventually at the age of twenty and this was two years of your life where this is really kind of did work. Yeah. Rob you of your faith. So first before we go to what parents should go. Tell me what brought you back to the faith. Basically, I was spiritually dead for like one or two years. And I was just hanging out with terrible people in my life wasn't really on track to where it should have been. And you know, I was. Was going out a lot and binge drinking and everything. And so I wish I had like this grand explanation. But I just woke up one day, and I went back to church, and I remember just all in my eyes out during worship because I just felt so ashamed that how could I have denied God for two whole years, and I was just completely ashamed. And so it was just I just had a moment one day, and I just woke up, and I went back and ever since then I just kind of couldn't believe who I was for those two years. Boy, how lucky because it seems like as a parent at least like you're you try to do everything. Right. It seems like your parents did. Right. Like, you set this foundation. Get the per either your kid to this point rethink. They're going to be able to handle themselves in the situation. And you can't you can't internalize the pressure of an and how that feels for someone at that age, who's not brain isn't even fully formed to be able to deal with that. That is terrifying. Glenn you've gone through it nine thousand times. I have t that's terrified. So tell me what apparent needs to. Apparent needs to know. I think they need to know what's happening in their child's life. When they go to college and understand that just because we're eighteen and we're on our own, and we're supposed to be like this adult now that we still need our parents as much as any other time in our life. And I don't blame my mom at all. I think she just thought I was independent person. And I was wrong and she didn't have to worry about me. And she you know, she worked a lot. She had like four brothers. And I think she just trusted me and she trusted the institution. So I think sadly, parents you can't trust these institutions anymore. It's not about being an intellectual or challenging ideas anymore. It's about indoctrinating people to this liberal agenda. I mean, am I in my piece? It's I talk about how Republic Republicans are outnumbered by Democrats like seventy two one. So I think just being aware of that. And checking in with your, you know, your child while they're at college seeing what they're learning learning about their professors to I mean, you can go. Oh on Twitter and social media. Find out exactly who they are now. So what if anything could your your parents have done for you to prepare you to walk into that line? Stan. That's hard on. I think my mom could have been. It was just her on her own. So I'm not sure exactly what she could have done differently. I would have to ask her. Now. I never really talked about this to anyone. Right now. I every time I shared my testimony with like, my Christian, friends or church groups is skipped over the professor part. I just told us the most powerful part, I know, and I would just tell them. Oh, I just fell away from the faith for like one or two years. And then I came back, and you know, felt ashamed that I did that or denied him. So I never really talked to her about it. As she read the article. Yes, she has and she written. They're called you. She she's I mean, she's kind of texted me and said that was good. And you know, I sent it to my in laws to you. And she's like, wow. That is amazing. And my husband read it, and he went to Stephen F Austin and academic Jason his experience was just the polar opposite. Like, he didn't see all the stuff that I saw going to UT El Paso or the university of North Texas. So I think they're all kind of shocked in a way. I mean, look the the upside is if the university is gonna take faith away from her kid, at least you're not paying tens of thousands of dollars a year to them there. Really?.
