I'm quarrel Zeus Hill a brutal killer one who has caused so much hardship and death has violently been eliminated the role is currently filled by Steven Mnuchin the nation seventy seven secretary of the Treasury one role of secretary he will never again harm another innocent man woman or child the President says a U S Special Forces Mission Nation of Islam Isis was violet group known for murdering scores of people who didn't share its beliefs and while it existed years before twenty fourteen that was the all the world's one point five billion Muslims though that claim was rejected by many Muslims worldwide between then and now Isis lost its territory in Iraq the US Treasury Secretary Jack Lew Kathleen Sibelius Wilbur Ross Core Steven Mnuchin it's an acronym for Islamic state in Iraq in Syria and that's what it wanted to create a new country a theocracy in the Middle East based on Isis strict interpreter gap since two thousand twelve when it had been exceeding a trillion dollars for several years but if US trade disputes with other countries continue and if global growth slows fallen with the defeat of its last stronghold in Syria that doesn't mean everyone who fought for the terrorist group is dead in April Islamic state released video that it says era took control of large parts of Iraq and Syria twenty fourteen was also when Isis leader Abu Bakar al-Baghdadi declared himself to be the leader over several other countries and Kurdish fighters in Syria for their help with the mission well US defense secretary marked Espera called all Dadis death a devastating blow to in Syria as the international effort to fight it ramped up the United States led a coalition a group of countries in targeting Isis fighters and in March of this year Isis. Had Eric has been doing that for centuries the only time in history it didn't have a national debt was in eighteen thirty five under president. Andrew Jackson on Friday though ACIS America and other nations said they'd stay on guard against the next terrorist leaders who appear heavy second Trivia who is the the gap between what the government spends what it takes in reached nine hundred eighty four billion dollars for a twelve month period ending in September that's its biggest had contained a new message from all big Dadi that was the first time he'd been seen in more than five years but on Sunday morning US President Donald Trump said al-Baghdadi had been killed with him in the mission though no American troops died president trump says al-Baghdadi killed himself after becoming trapped at the end of the tunnel and the American leader thanks Mnuchin Department is to manage America's public debt the amount of money the US government owes to other governments groups investors or businesses right now that number stands at twenty two point nine trillion dollars the thing that makes that number grow is the deficit when the government spends more money than it takes in and ended the ISIS leader after keeping close track of him for weeks the raid was carried out in northwest Syria says several isis fighters and companions of al-Baghdadi down as many analysts expect it to the US deficit could exceed one trillion dollars once again next year why is it so high secretary. MNUCHIN says wait the government spending needs to be cut also the tax cuts that were passed in twenty seventeen reduced the government's revenue but when you're looking at the debt and the deficit that causes not the same thing let's first start with definitions if a government spends more than it takes in any given year the difference is called deficit debt or v death is the the numbers are always in flux. American lives on borrowed money that's what the debt and deficit get thrown around so much but of course the these are the numbers you should be looking at five hundred years since Leonardo Davinci passed away he jeannie is among those who has pointedly noted that Davinci was Italian not French and there was a public debate in Italy about sending works Francis King Francis the first that helps explain the lose permanent collection of five of Davinci's surviving works in decision to spend so much picture that came from his paintbrush or pencil ten years in the making the Moves Leonardo Da Vinci Exhibition features more than one hundred context and the first thing to keep in mind inflation with inflation at two hundred fifty seven billion dollar debt in nineteen fifty suddenly becomes two point eight trillion today the simple answer some economists eighty five percent is too high some say one hundred percent some say even higher but regardless of which number is right economists agree art on loan to the loop that hasn't dampened the enthusiasm surrounding this event it's supposed to be suspicion has led to some Franco Italian tensions Italy's far-right politician a former Deputy Prime Minister Mateo salary is an incredibly influential Italian who died in France and though that fact has caused some tensions at an extraordinary exhibition just opened in France to show his she transcends nationality she only spent his last year in France and that's why we are today institution into the Gross Domestic Product now if we go back to that dead comparison instead show the debt as a percentage of the total economy well it's a different story in sixty works including many items on loan from all over Europe and the United States the Italian masters spent his last years as court artists Sir Architecture Art Invention Davinci was brilliant in multiple fields that's why half a millennium later thousands are lining up just to see some of the two now at around twenty two trillion dollars but comparing the dead band comparing the debt now comparing apples to oranges that's because when you talk about the deficit you need as money but you also have to look at the total size of the economy or economy has grown tremendously since nineteen fifty we have more money we have more assets we have more people on it opened Friday it also contains works from other artists that are related to those of Davinci he was considered an ideal renaissance man because he was so gifted skull number right now around one hundred six percent which is the highest it's been since World War Two and if you're wondering if that number is too high well there's the the biggest best exhibition on Leonardo that's taken eighth an awfully long time and according to the Louvre Genius of the scale of the space ticket holders for the exhibition are free to take their place in line and Jostle with the crap hole in CNN only the most of his paintings but Leonardo Da Vinci also he started as an Italian but he became a universal genius fourteen out of ten pumpkins float but will float your boat they will if you're this man join a communist talk about the debt they prefer to use this number the debt to GDP ratio it takes total public debt and shows how big is relevant reportedly viewed by about thirty thousand people at the Louvre each and every day it isn't part of the special exhibition as the organizers say it would risk overcrowded incoming France in fifteen sixteen and it's in France that he died five hundred years ago lose decision to organize this I story and our lineup today is the death of the leader of an infamous terrorist group since twenty fourteen news organizations around the world have done a lot of reporting on isis his previous record was a two hundred twenty pound Pumpkin so he's definitely making progress but he hopes that one day maybe as soon as next year he'll achieve a thousand pounder time and resources on this exhibition the music the new one had to do something that on two thousand nine because Leonardo Da Vinci decided to we think he's doing just vying you can see the Gore job he's doing stems from a fruitful desire to pick and patched together own record and hopefully his land turn will light up the this is a remarkable collection of Leonardo Davinci's work on display all in one place the most famous work of course the Mona Lisa is re he's a former in Tennessee who took a nine hundred ten pound pumpkin carved it and set sail his name's Justin ownby and this is the biggest gourd he's ever grown enough growing a few PUMPKINS on CNN. Wholesome our government so every year the deficit the debt grows larger looking at a chart we see that in one thousand nine hundred eighty the debt was around two hundred and fifty seven billion dollars.

Photography academy dot com or click on the link in the show notes to start improving your photography. Today as i noted in the introduction. Andre rome off was a very big baby. He was born in rural france to parents who were farmers. He grew up very quickly by age of twelve. He was already six feet three inches tall or one hundred ninety one centimeters at the age of fourteen. He finished school as that was the end of compulsory education. In france at the time you spent the next several years doing manual labor on his family's farm and at a local factory in one thousand nine hundred eighty four at the age of eighteen. He moved to paris where he met a professional wrestling promoter. Who thought that andrei would be perfect for wrestling needles to say he was right. He began wrestling in france under the name. The giant fear in reference to a french folk legend. He then began working all over the world where he would be the main attraction he worked in japan. Canada germany the uk and the us under the name the monster russa moth in nineteen seventy one he met vince mcmahon senior president of the world wide wrestling federation and the father of the current. Wwe vince mcmahon. Junior mcmahon suggested that he changed his ring name to andre the giant a name which he used for the rest of his life he also suggested changing his persona to a lumbering giant. If you've seen video of andre it was probably from the mid to late. Nineteen eighty s when he was much slower and couldn't get around very well however in the early seventies. He was actually extremely athletic. It was also around this time. That andre was diagnosed with the condition which made him so large. Acro- begley his patou cherry glen basically overproduced growth hormone which is what made him so big. They quickly learned how to sell. Andre andre wrestled in montreal. He would sell at the arena. People came just to see him because he was so large however almost anyone they paired him with was utterly unconvincing. Even the biggest wrestlers. Look tiny next. Andre eventually in montreal crowd stop coming because andre was no longer a novelty that was when andre an extensive travel schedule at the time professional wrestling was a regional business promotion might only work in a few states and their television shows only pure and in a few markets. As there wasn't an internet most people were clueless as to what was happening around the country. And certainly not in other countries. When andre came to town he would always sell it. Arenas andre was a special event as a result. He almost never lost. And he almost never won any championships. He didn't need to win a championship because he was popular and could sell tickets without one. It was living on the road and traveling between towns. That the legend of andre the giant was born. It's hard to express on a podcast. Just how big andre was. Andre was seven four seven five at his tallest if andrea had played in the nba. He would have been one of the ten tallest. Nba players in history. But it wasn't just tall. He was big many of the extremely tall. Nba players in history. We're also very skinny. See manute bol or shawn bradley. Andrei maxed out at about five hundred and fifty pounds when he was in the ring. Other wrestlers who were otherwise large burly men would be treated like rag dolls by andrei. Even though the matches were predetermined. Andre could still beat you up pretty bad in the ring if he didn't like you and there wasn't much you can do about it because he was andre. The giant andrei size was an issue in traveling. Nothing fit him when he flew. He had to take up two seats in first class. Just so we could fit all of the beds. Showers and toilets were too small for him. He literally couldn't go to the bathroom and most airplanes when he was in japan. Taxis would often refuse to give him a ride. One time he hit around a corner while another wrestler hailed a cab when it stopped. Andre came out in the cab. Drivers started yelling. No no no. He tried to drive off. But andre picked up the back bumper of the car preventing them from going anywhere. He was once scheduled to be in a match. With a real boxer named chuck wagner. This wasn't a predetermined match. It was intended to be a real fight. And he was a heavyweight. Boxer could do throw ineffective punches at andre until andrei became annoyed and andre picked them up and threw them over the top rope to end the match. People would stare at andre everywhere he went one of the things he enjoyed about wrestling was being backstage where nobody would stare at him. One night at a bar. A drunk i wanted to fight andrei. He didn't wanna have any of it so we even offered to buy the guy drink. The guy kept coming at him. So andre picked him up by the collar and the belt threw him across the room against the wall and broke several of his ribs. He went to dinner. With arnold schwarzenegger arnold insisted on paying. Arnold got up to pay at the front desk when andrea literally picked him up and brought him back to the table. Saying i pay as impressive as the stories are of andrei size and strength. The stories all is wrestler friends. Tell our about his drinking andre. The giant might have been without any exaggeration or hyperbole. The greatest drinker in human history. These stories aren't just a few urban myths that are unconfirmed. There are dozens and dozens of people who all have different stories of andre the giant over the years that all share the same basic theme. Whenever people went drinking with andrei they would document the amount of alcohol he consumed because it was so much. Andre would consume on a daily basis about seven thousand calories of alcohol. He said it took him two bottles of vodka just to get warm. Hulk hogan reported that andrei once consumed one hundred eight beers beers during a layover at the delta lounge in the tampa airport during a bus trip. Japan hogan said he consume twelve bottles of french wine within three hours on a flight from chicago to tokyo with ric flair. He drank all of the vodka on the plane on a flight. From miami to dayton hillbilly. Jim and andre fifty-six tiny airplane bottles of vodka on the short flight and andrei drink fifty. Gerald brisco confirmed that. Andre would drink six bottles of portuguese wine before he had a wrestling match one night. There was a last call from a bartender. So andrea ordered forty vodka tonics. The bartender gave in stayed until andrea was done drinking at five am. He stayed in england at a hotel for a month and racked up a forty thousand dollars. Bar tab perhaps. His most famous bout of drinking was when he went out. One night with wrestlers. Mike ram dusty rhodes and michael hayes. All three men confirmed that andre consumed one hundred and fifty six beers that night. Andre wants felon a man in new york when he was drinking after that the new york police department would have an undercover officer. Follow andrei when he went out drinking and andre would by the cop drinks. He wants passed out in the lobby of a hotel. The hotel didn't know what to do so they put velvet rope around him and let him sleep. He took his co star from the princess bride. Carry us out drinking one night at one of his favorite bars. He ordered the usual. His usual was a pitcher filled up with every form of alcohol. The bar had the pitcher in his hand. Like a drinking glass would fit in most people's hands. He called his drink. The american one of the reasons why andre drank so much is that he was in constant pain. Once he entered his thirties his size began to cause problems get constant pain and his joints and back by the time he was on the set for the movie the princess bride hold the one hundred ten pound robin wright in a scene. They had to use a harness because his back hurt so much under. It was undefeated for fifteen years wrestling in the united states and canada by nineteen eighty-seven under his physical condition had gotten worse and he knew that his career was winding down at wrestlemania. Three in detroit in front of the largest indoor crowd in history andrei lost the hulk hogan passing the torch and mostly ending his career. He still did a few matches and made some appearances after that. But it was never the same in january nineteen ninety-three while attending his father's funeral. in france. he passed away at the age of forty six. The cause of death was believed to be an excess of fluid around his heart. He was the first person inducted into the wwe wrestling hall of fame. While there have been other wrestlers sensitive come close to size. No one has ever been able to really replace him. Billy crystal wrote the movie my giant based on his friendship with andrei. It's hard to believe it's been almost thirty years. Since andre the giant passed away he was such a singular and unique person that the stories about him are still shared by people who've had the pleasure of meeting him their stories.

We step back to the early days of the motorcycle wars when the field was still wide open blood and oil spill is internal combustion powered dreams explode and survive the winners will stop at nothing. This is episode to the heart is born as the war motorcycle supremacy kicks off the battlefields sales will be the nation's roads in the early nineteen hundreds their primitive at best. The industrial revolution is underway in railroads are thriving but highways nonexistent city streets are rough and dangerous crowded with pedestrians and horse drawn vehicles outside of city limits things get rural fast and that means dirt roads horse trails cow pass it won't be until nineteen forty seven a full forty four years after the first harley sputters down a cobblestone street in milwaukee that paved thoroughfares outnumber unpaved roads in the u._s. It was for now cars are still a novelty expensive unreliable but bicycles. That's another story. Bikes are popular. They make sense. Anyone can ride them. They don't cost much. They're easy to navigate around potholes and obstacles and they're easy nineteen. Stick a simple engine on a bike and it makes even more sense. Lots of people see the commercial potential fledgling juuling motorcycle companies like imperial hercules thor pope monarch wizar- marsh curtis flying merckel and indian indian are all vying for market share between one thousand nine hundred nineteen seventeen over one hundred fifty companies will pump out motorcycles cycles in the u._s. Most of them were flame out by nineteen twenty and that's just domestically in britain firms like matchless listen norton excelsior aerial or making worthy bikes they know the real money is in the american market. It'll take decades but a few will cross the atlantic to challenge harley davidson for now. The powerhouse brand is indian. It begins with george hendy. He's been manufacturing bicycles since eighteen ninety. Seven in springfield massachusetts under the indian name hendi is also one of the top bicycle cycle racers in the country. This is a big deal crowds of thirty thousand regularly show up for races at big city venues in january very nineteen hundred he traveled to madison square garden for race of gas powered tandem bicycles called pacers ridden by two or even three men. One of the racers is oscar headstrong. The swedish emigrant is a gifted designer and engineer who makes a lightweight extremely sturdy pacer with with a strong engine as the race gets underway hendi's got his eye on headstrong and the bike performs well after the race hendy the approaches excuse me your oscar heads dramont you great racer that pacers a hell of a bike. I'm george handy by the way a wide grin breaks out through his thick handlebar. Moustache hindy is a chummy likable guy. He's a big man to two hundred forty. Three pounds hedstroem extends his hand. Thanks nice to meet you george. I've seen you race. Handy bends down and is the bike is headstrong is wiping it down. So did you design that yourself. I did. I catch the engine to. It's an air cooled internal combustion motor five horsepower horsepower. You don't say swedes may good things first meatballs and now this. I don't believe you can build a better meatball all but there's still a long way to go and engine design towards handy's mind races with possibilities. Tell you what oscar i know business and you obviously know mechanics. We both know the bike. World hedstroem stops working on his bike and looks up at handy. He has a feeling he knows. That's where this is going. He waits for handy to continue you know the future is wide open for a capable machine that can be mass produced. How'd you like to come to springfield greenfield and go to work hendy and headstrong team up signing a contract on the back of an envelope after five months work in june of nineteen eighteen o one they unveiled the indian single a- prototype bike with one and three quarters horse power and a top speed of twenty five miles per hour doc in springfield crowd of over five hundred people show up on a hot afternoon to witness hedstroem. Go the one hundred ten pound machine up prostrate. It's on a hill with a steep nineteen percent grade covered with loose gravel the indian crests the hill triumphantly and its success draws investors with twenty thousand dollars backing hendy and hedstroem set up a factory and get to work in nineteen ninety-two they make and sell one hundred forty three bikes a year later while the tireless harley davidson team are still adjusting the tomato can carburetor later on their first bike indian manufacturers three hundred seventy six machines the two-man brain trusted indian cora perfect tag team and while george handy charms his way across the country recruiting dealers and advertising the brand oscar hedstroem designs frames and engines and demonstrates their product arctic hedstreom sets an unofficial motorcycle world speed record of fifty six miles per hour at ormond beach florida it sets that's the bike world buzzing. The indian nabs a blue ribbon a few months later at the wisconsin state fair. A harley rider comes in fourth at this point harley. Davidson is barely on indians radar. They're just another small struggling company. Among dozens in one thousand nine four the harley boys and arthur davidson managed to make four motorcycles in their backyard shed. It's a modest start indians factory meanwhile meanwhile pumps out nearly six hundred indian is well on the way to becoming the biggest motorcycle manufacturer on the planet by nineteen. Oh five like so many other small time outfits. Harley is looking down the barrel at failure but that doesn't happen the fighters from milwaukee make a model that can compete with the best of the bikes on the market and harley davidson christians it the silent gray fellow with a forty mile per hour top speed machine boasts a twenty six point eight cubic inch engine with four horsepower. It's painted renault gray with red red pin striping instead of the traditional harley black and the silent part. Some customers have complained about noise. The redesign mufflers ensure were that infants will sleep soundly an old women will not jump in fear when a harley davidson drives by all that for two hundred and fifteen dollars about thirty bucks less than an indian and roughly a quarter of the price of a new car harley sells fifty machines in one thousand nine hundred six and builds an actual factory in milwaukee with sales tripling the following year founders arthur and walter davidson and bill harley bring on yet another davidson brother is a partner william. He's an expert mechanic though he rarely gets on a motorcycle. The latest davidson is also good with people apple and that'll be a major asset to this company. The industrial age offers new delights for thrill loving americans motorcycle racing among them in nineteen. Oh eight walter davidson wins a treacherous today three hundred fifty six mile endurance contest in the catskill mountains. He earns a perfect score smoking sixty five riders on seventeen brands of bikes including indian shaming. The top dog is a major victory for harley three years later at britain's one hundred eighty seven mile isle of man race indian gets the international spotlight winning first second and third place getting massive press but this is all so civilized compared to what's to come as bikes become more powerful board track racing becomes popular. The mile-long oval tracks are built of crude two by fours banked up to sixty degrees. Insane lean angles that push writers on break less bikes close to one hundred miles per hour without flying off the track at least theoretically doc officially venues are called moto drums. The press dubs them murder drums. These race tracks pushed the sport into new fiercely competitive territory. It's exhilarating and it's deadly. The public loves it. There's always the risk risk of loose planks flying like spears and oil so foot long splinters that can easily pierce a riders thin cotton shirt leather pants or goggles crashes is a frequent and tens of thousands show up regularly attracts around the country just to witness the carnage. It's like something from ancient rome win or lose harley. Davidson is a conservative company run by conservative men. They don't need to be connected with this kind of dark publicity. It sickens them. Then on september eighth nineteen twelve eddie the texas cyclone hasha is killed while riding an indian on a new jersey track in front of five thousand people he loses control of his bike and is thrown into the crowd killing six and injuring twenty bystanders. It's the worst disaster in racing's history the next day walter and arthur davidson meet and local tavern for drinks. They knew eddie well when hasha briefly stopped racing a couple of years ago arthur had given him a job at the harley dealership in dallas. I i can't get over what happened to eddie. He was such a good kid. You could ride son of a gun. That's for sure but he should have stayed away from from board racing. It's a damn blood sport. If you ask me listen to this walter opens a copy of the new york times and begins to read six killed by motorcyclists jumping track going at ninety two mile speed a boy standing nearest to the point where the motorcycle tour through the net guard was struck before he could move an inch and his head was cut off. The machine spun around hurling. It's writer into the grandstand where he was picked up with his head crushed his neck broken his arms and legs broken and his ribs crushed in screaming cursing whimpering the spectators bought and trampled one. Another underfoot in the frantic struggled to get out of the path of the machine for god's sake walter. That's enough please. We've got to distance ourselves from board ford racing. I agree but we need to keep harley davidson competing at non-ward events. I think we can do both. We can't afford to lose the sales that come out of racing. Arthur davidson plays both sides of the fence. He writes a statement for the company's internal publication the harley davidson dealer. We're building ling motorcycles to be used by sane people for pleasure and business. We do not want our machines ridden by lunatics. It won't be the last time the company distances distances itself from what it perceives to be the bad element but harley continues to race and saying people keep buying harley by nineteen thirteen sales near thirteen thousand bikes but still indian is crushing it indians having its best last year ever with thirty two thousand bikes sold companies making one point three million dollars profit not enough for the board of directors they they start inflating the company's stock start butting heads with hindi and hedstroem finally in one thousand nine hundred sixteen hedstroem resigns less than two years after his exit indians president. George hendy has also grown tired of fighting. The corporate suits he resigns takes aches. His money gets married and buys a five hundred acre chicken farm in just a decade hendy and hedstroem created the largest motorcycle company in the world but now that they've left for indian.

Harley davidson makes twenty thousand bikes for the war. They wanna make sure they can still supply bikes to customers on the home front. This will prove decisive in the battle between indian and harley davidson on the home front when the war ends in nineteen eighteen indian takes a huge hit with no bikes available to americans at home thousands of riders defect to harley decades later during world war two indian will again go onto manufacturer thousands of bikes for the war effort but these patriotic moves will prove to be serious business mistakes. Harley davidson has been looking at the tailpipe of indian for nearly two decades. Now the company is is finally number one. It's come a long way from backyard. Shack tomato canned carburetor.

Let's not let antitrust laws get in the way of of our mutual survival drink to that they reach a pact and get together annually for clandestine strategy meetings publicly the companies are still at war but their secret conspiracy allows them to whether the staggering automobile onslaught and survived the depression of the nineteen thirties harley davidson may be on top but staying there is a a different story and this one's not going to be easy on the next episode but postwar years bring the mighty harley hog into unrivalled status as a pop culture icon and his indian enters its death throes.

Phinsider Radio: Miami Dolphins darkhorse candidates to make an impact this season and our favorite game we've seen live

"Radio pogo center dot com. Any Espy nation network? And now your host at you cannot joined by co-hosts, Josh and Aaron inside. Hello, everybody, and welcome to inside radio. This is MAC out of joined by Aaron sign and Joshua. Miami Dolphins not doing a lot in the news this past week. So this week's going to be a little bit of a one off episode in terms of what we're going to talk about our content and we're going to bring you some entertainment this week on inside radio. We're not going to talk about OT as we're not going to talk about the regular drama within the organization in terms of position battles, and who's battling who and who's saying what no instead we wanna talk about two different things. Tonight one we want to talk about our greatest game. We ever attended in person and to one darkhorse candidate that we think is going to make an impact for the Miami Dolphins this season figure, it's a nice little break, son. And how it's from the daily grind, so to speak in terms of who's doing what and who's doing who. That's a nut. Come out, right? Let's dress the elephant in the room, I want, I want something to get it on this. What, what did we find out about math either, just? It's kind of been eating away at us for few days as pri- Bessette. We just get us off our chest net slip up. There was not invitation for you guys to rank on me. Well, who's known hill. Yeah. Okay. So we were asking Matthew the other day because, you know, he has horrible taste in music and TV and pretty much any sort of everything of everything. We asked him what favorite movie of all time was just recently, not as favourite superhero movie, not his favorite Princess movie that he watches with his daughter. What is his favorite movie of all time? House. What did he say? It was, I think Matthew should said, I could hear your you're getting ready to just to you're about ready to go off your the blow gaskets you might as well. Tell us tell us the movie why why, why why you are media. Tell the movie. Favorite movie. You should have no problem telling us why. Right off the tongue. I, I said my favorite but we was big daddy. Big daddy. And just for everyone said, this is not like a Hornos old classic or. Yeah. Yeah, it is the classic with Adam Sandler several other individuals. But. Individuals. Yes. So the grace. Cast who rob Schneider? Okay. Okay. Yes. He was in there up believe he he's in every movie. So he's saying there has like the same people in every single movie. So. So are we just going to ignore the fact that, that big daddy's maybe top, maybe number three at best Adam sailor movies? Joey Lauren Adams, the sprouse twins. Okay. So you just looked it up. I am heaping view. Okay. Just stop talking opens number one at the box office with a forty one million five hundred thirty six thousand thirty. Impressive. People say like fight club. That's his highest roasting film domestically until hotel Transylvania two and twenty fifteen okay. Until hotel Transylvania to be down. Are you hearing yourself? That's terrible. This was a there's no way happy Gilmore didn't make a billion dollars. No big daddy is owner, boys. Better too. Big daddy has it all ask the comedy has the heartbreak. It has a joy has the tears. It moves you to tears at different points label it's funny. It's, it's stuff that you would think about doing with your own child. It's, it's, it's just it's unbelievable. It is. What part in big daddy? Do you really want to do with your son as you as you progress as a father, probably just covering the serial spilling with newspaper, just calling it a day is going on having fun? And dropping them. Louise backup, right? Chrissy will rip you a new. Oh, yeah. Well, she does. A new. It's a it's a touching story, you know, he tries to adopt us kids tries to take this kid under his wing, and give them a father figuring doesn't have an Adam Sandler sunny Colfax has no idea what he's doing, but he's doing the best they could possibly be. And then when the -partment of child Valey services tries to take the kid away. It's very sad because. Julian, the kid doesn't want to leave Colfax and sunny doesn't want to give Julian up. And it's just a very sad thing. Okay. So let's relive. Okay. Matthew listening. We didn't care that much. Let's completely stretch. The truth for just a second and say that big daddy is the best. Adam Sandler movie. You said it was a touching story parts to movies, like The Shawshank, Redemption, or Schindler's List, or, and game avengers or Infinity war or anything like that move the needle for you or all those movies. I just listed not something that you're even aware of I never seen any of them. I out. Punching face the next time I see you. We'll tell you in high school when I was in, when I was in band, we played the theme from Schindler's, List, and l is very sad song. So I can only imagine how touching that movie is moving along. Let's your Edward Scissorhands is also another good movies. Yeah. Let's talk football. All right. Let's sump to it. Favorite game that you've ever seen in person? I've been to a few games myself in the lifespan of my life been to the hall of fame preseason game when marina was inducted into a few other preseason games have into a few regular season games dolphins for Texans when Dan Campbell took over dolphins. Verse jets last year. Dolphins verse raiders last year. Dolphins verse jets Sunday night football a few years ago with house. And some we were both there with, with numerous other people dolphins Burs Bangladesh last year in Cincinnati, but I'm gonna before I give mine favorite game in person. I'm going to defer it to house. I will start with you house. What was your favorite game you've ever watched in person? All right. So I remember it was December twenty eight thousand eight the game flex to a four seventeen start time. The dolphins verse jets it was the year when the jets got Chad Pennington film to the dolphins lap. Rhett for was the quarterback at the time the dolphins had chance to win the division was a great game. I mean I remember seeing the anti Anthony Bassano touchdown the Ted Ginn touchdown. I mean I was there it was it was probably the most unbelievable game. I was ever at. I remember seeing Brett Farr destroyed by air. My ability end of the game. I thought he was career was over, but he went on to play a little longer thing. I remember most about this real quick. We rolled up to the stadium in my, my mom had a Volkswagen. Cabriolet my dad's yells out the window. Thanks for Chad ladies because he was just so excited. The dolphins at Chad Pennington I was there with my dad. It was a great experience. And to me that was my all time favorite game. And when you look back on it was the last time the dolphins actually when a division. Mine. Personally mine is the two thousand thirteen matchup between the dolphins and Steelers and December was a crazy game if anybody remembers this, so basically. The doll is, it's a back and forth game, the Charles clay crazy touchdown where he almost gets tackled by, like four different guys. And he stiff arms off the ground and then bounces into the end zone to annual. Thomas went off that game. I mean it was just a back and forth Brill e high scoring game. So just a really fun football game to be at. But then. It's the very end of the game. The dolphins are winning thirty four to twenty eight at this point. And the Steelers have the ball and they start ladder Ling the ball back and forth and Ross burder, somehow gets it over to an Tonio Brown who breaks tackle and gets out innocent space and rounds a corner. And what looks like to me from the stands that he has ran in for a touchdown in the dolphins. Have just. Flabbergasted me to the point that I can't believe what I'm watching, and it seems like an eternity to see the Refco over and point that into Neo Brown had stepped out of bounds and that, that emotional roller coaster, just in that short amount of time. That was one of the craziest experiences that I've had at a football game just to see all the Steelers fans, I starting to leave and watching them Waddell, the ball around and make it seem like they materialize outta something. I think and he only stepped out by what inch I mean. It wasn't by much. But thank God, the God smiled on us that day, then the mounts anything to make the playoffs or anything. But it was still a great game to be at. Mine was the dolphins were Texans back in twenty fifteen. It was the Campbell's first game at home after taking over as interim head coach Joe Philbin. Previous weekday had be in the Texans and a blowout situation. And it was no difference in Miami. When they came back home. Lamar Miller was featured front and center in the office and the offense. Jarvis Landry was featured made about twenty five guys miss on his way to a long touchdown pass early on the game. It was about probably maybe a sixty yard or so. But he basically caught the pass towards the left sideline early in the first quarter ran across the other side of the field and ran up the fields and made it into the end zone. And that just started the routes with Ryan tannehill throw in dimes Lamar Miller. Doing a lot of great work retard Matthews remember that name Jarvis Landry again just bawling out. It was a total and complete domination. For the Miami Dolphins by the. Second quarter early in the second quarter is really thirty five zero forty one two zero going into halftime. It was pretty crazy. I was there sitting down. It was a huge rainstorm that day as well. So, you know, to field on and off wet and dry, so forth and so forth. It was just an absolute domination. And that's what we thought a lot of law. All my God, the end Campbell might actually be the guy as head coach. We know that, that momentum would soon falter a few weeks down the road and would go back to, you know, just fishing out the season as strong as they possibly could. But man with a fun of few weeks for dolphins fans with Dan Campbell leading the way. And I won't ever forget that game. It was just an amazing amazing game. That's mine. Thank you for sharing yours. Hey, you had a better taste in that then your day stupid movies. You know. Let's not forget, the we all at where Bryce petty almost died almost birth. That was ridiculous. We would have been up so law and order, they would change our names. But we would be given our testimony on what we saw happen. We, we had such a great angle that sack to help right at us. That's what helps almost God's will fight with the fans in front of two minutes into the game. I don't get angry. Yeah. That was well before anything like crazy happen houses, syst- house was just ready to go. I think it was Atlanta that he was the chicken, it was the chicken wings. We had a great tailgate speaking of which if you're going to the judge dolphins games this season. I know the MetLife takeover is going to be strong like they are every year. But pro football network is thinking of planning something as well. So keep your eyes out. We may be raining down on MetLife stadium for a PFM summits. And if so everyone is invited party with us before during and after the game more information coming soon. All right. Let's switch gears here we talked about my favorite movie, which is a great movie, which you should watch. We talked about our favorite game. You've seen a person now talking about one darkhorse player that might make a big impact with the dolphins this coming season son will start with you. You know what I'm gonna go with a player who I think? And when I'm defining darkhorse for me, I think a dark horse for me as someone who's going to get an opportunity because someone above him in the depth chart is going to get injured or something along those lines. And I think in this case, I'm, I'm gonna back Jalen Davis, I think he, he offers a niche for us at slot cornerback. And if anything happens, Bobby McCain, like he automatically gets a ton of reps, and I think we're going to be seeing a lot more five defensive back standard defense. So it stands to reason that you could see more slot cornerback even to spell. Bobby McCain to and Jalen Davis was an undrafted free agent. Last year, ended up getting picked up later in the season got some snaps in the last two games of the season and made a couple of plays while he was there. And he was an undrafted. The free agent that I thought would stick around a little bit for the very reason that he does have a interesting body type is only five ten one eighty five but you'd think. When we're when we're worried about that slot wide receiver position. And specially what we're seeing out of the New England camp. That we're gonna wanna be able to match up as well as we possibly can have someone a little bit lower center of gravity for the for the quick twitch stuff that we're going to need those in-and-out breaking routes, and to be able to keep up with those guys. So I think Jalen Davis is somebody that I think offers a unique skill set to this defensive secondary. And as a result, whether sue injury, or just because Brian Florez in his defense is able to find an additional role for him. I think Jalen Davis is a dark horse said, keep your eye on later in the season out saw about you for me. And I know together a lot of people have been talking about lately. I I'm not really sure how big of a need to dolphins. Currently have wide receiver position. We know there's uncertainty surrounding became grant with his injury. Over Wilson you haven't heard much about him because he's nursing. Injury. So the wrist some uncertainty there, but the player most interested in is the six foot four two hundred ten pound wide receiver out of Colorado state, Preston Williams. We wanna draft that we know for the reasons why had to transfer from Tennessee. He had some off the field issues. Some trouble with the domestic abuse issue that he had that ended up being cleared, but at the end of the day, I mean this guy that if he can keep his head, right. He has that potential to be a what many people think appro comparison to him as Martavis Bryant. So I mean he is big body receiver can run all the routes has some inconsistencies with his hands. But I'm not sure how much of a factor he can be your one, but I think long term is a reason. The dolphins went out there, and he was one of their first targets as soon as they could sign these undrafted free agents. Mrs got it some thought it'd be draft third or fourth round. So for me he has that potential to be a dynamic receiver. You know, some people think he's at big body number one wide receiver. You know, you see devante Parker making plays in training camp, not as but until that translates to the game, the dolphins need to. That big body receive on the outside whether or not personally Williams can do that. You're one, I can't really attest to that. But I think you know, long term, this is a guy that has potential to break out. And I'm gonna take a different approach to this. I'm not gonna say guy who's maybe not well known with dolphins fans. I'm gonna go with your own bigger and people may say, well, he kind of broke out last year a little bit. He played really well, yes, he did. But I think he's going to have an even more significant role this season. All reports coming out of camp. The dolphins coaching staff are absolutely in love with two linebackers so far that is key co Alonzo and yester- own Baker recall of one's name is not been mentioned in the love fest that the dolphins have for their linebackers. I think Ray Cuomo still have a nice role on this team. But I think when you're looking on the field this year who can be playing the majority of snaps the linebacker position. I really do think you're gonna see KiKi Jerome out there more often than not Jerome Baker is a guy that played sixteen games last year started eleven had one interception. But more importantly, as something then combined tackles fifty seven solos twenty two assists four tackles for loss at four quarterback hits oh for quarterback hits and three. Sex. You know, when he was skiing, we saw sometimes Matt Burke, had actually a lightbulb moment and realized what he was doing or actually found the probably a nut, you know, blind squirrel finds every now and then when he actually schemed drum Baker to rush the quarterback or the sack we saw Jerome Baker. Get there more often than not, and Jerome has a lot of speed is a lot of smarts understands what he's doing on the field. Very humble player, I saw him in the locker room after that big game last believe it was the jets, I think, can't remember but very humble kid very intuitive into what's going on. And I think under a guy like Brian floors, and his coaching staff is only going to improve from here, and I think by the end of the twenty nineteen season you'll be talking about your own Baker as one of the cornerstones of this Miami Dolphins defense in Jalen limited quick fem boy, Bakwanga. I mean, we can't discredit what he's going to do this defense. I think he's going to have a huge impact this year. Those two guys I mean that's the future of the Miami, Dolphins defense, the future that linebacking corps and a lot brighter than it was a few years ago. We got Jaylen Davis, Preston Williams and Jerome Baker. If those three can really get moving the dolphins have found some good fines and can continue building this foundation for the next several years as Brian floors, and company tried to get this franchise moving in the right direction. Be God knows this franchise needs. It. Short show this week. But hey not a lot going on in the world of the Miami Dolphins any last thoughts out and sign. No hope everybody had a chance to relax and enjoy some family over the weekend for for Morial day. Yes, thanks, thanks. All the veterans at, you know, died for us to have our freedom and all those for I right now, I just want to say, keep an eye on pro football network. We're not their fins part of that real soon. So keep an eye out for that. And all right. That's going to do it for us this week here on Vincent radio four Josh Watson, Aaron sign. I am that. Thank you for listening. We will talk to you next time. Radio part of the dot com and the SP. For. Where in the? Always. Thing. Oh. From? Ever. When you say. Any? Oh.

Bonus Episode : Sylvester Stallone needs a lifetime achievement Oscar

"Hey, everybody a j Benza here, you know, about a week ago I put on my patriarch on channel, a story about Sylvester Stallone and how I feel like having known him and work with them for twenty five years. I feel like Hollywood need to issue this. This man, some sort of lifetime achievement Oscar before it's too late. I don't wanna be here twenty years from now when they give him the posthumous Oscar. I think the guy's been alive long enough in his done, nothing mazing things in this town, particularly the fact that he's created two distinctly different characters in rocky and Rambo that he deserves some sort of huge recognition. So I did a patriot about that and my guy veto and I felt that it was good enough and important enough, and it got enough respect from from listeners that will we're gonna. It available to everybody else who's not a patron subscriber. So the thinking here is when you hear this show as a bonus episode, you'll be motivated to join patriot on subscription because I really do a number of different things more or less on a personal nature more so than the regular show. So when you hear this episode of semesters, Stallone think about coming aboard, the patriot train and getting more bang for your buck so to speak. So. Having said that, sit back and listen to my story and my feelings about Sylvester Stallone. It's been. It's been ten years at least ten years since the last time Rambo. Ran across movie screens in America, right? Stallone is seventy two years old. Now, Silvester flown is seventy two years old and he's back for what will be Rambos final outing. But I've said that before and I've been proven wrong. So who the fuck knows whether he's done or not? I remember when comedians used to make jokes about. Yeah. The next rocky Stallone's going to be in a wheelchair or is gonna say, yo Adrian a phone, and I can't get up, you know, we'd all laugh because you know, I mean, how long did he do it right. Because after rocky five, which even he knows did leave any fans happy. We all thought, you know, that's the way it would go. But we all know what's happened since then last ten, twelve years. Rocky Balboa brought rocky back to life, and then creed and creed to is about to go strong. The expendable franchise has been a hit an even bigger hit overseas because in a lot of places outside America, they actually honor old heroes here. Refunding put him out the pasture, we don't care about, but around the world, they love old time guys. They don't make fun of them. But I think most of us agreed. All right. No more Rambos like, yeah, you did that already. How long can you be a fucking killing machine. I mean, at least with rocky, you become a trainer. You're in the background, but Rambo's a killing machine. You know, at least we thought he was going to keep his all Vietnam, but it retired for good. I mean by now Rambo's gotta be making weekly trips to the VA. You know, it's got to have a leaky brought state and a coal, and it's got more holes in it than Swiss cheese. Something. But then last week. Last week, and this is what this podcast is about last week. So Vesta Stallone posted to images on his Instagram account, revealing a new look for the muscle bound, Rambo hero. Now, you know, although the star has recently shown images and videos of himself at the gym, I don't know how many of these videos you've seen go to YouTube, the type of workout. So Vesper Stallone is doing seventy. Two is all lording. If your grandfather did one tenth of this, you force him to sit down at his age. Most men are not allowed to use the remote control without their wife's permission. This guy is thrown one hundred, ten pound barbells as head. He's doing, pull ups with a hundred and ten pounds strapped to his waist. He's fucking pushing tractor. He's out of his mind. His veins look like snakes under his skin. And I don't care if he's got steroids or human growth hormone pumping throughout his body because obviously he's figured out how to do it. Okay. And the last Rambo, several years back. I remember he got busted with a bunch of, I don't know if it's vials or whatever you call, but he had a bunch of HGH tat was being flown in for him when he was shooting. Rambo four now I, it just was that was in Barrasso and he got busted was in Burma enemy said, okay, so he's he's getting some help, but who gives a shit, I know guys will good friends with sly who kinda use that stuff, too. Man. I wish I could do. I wish I had the money to drop ten grand a month on h. she agent steroids and knew how to do it right because the guys I know who do it. They are over the moon, not to mention the loan himself has said in ten years old. This is going to be legal because it's it's amazing. It's the fountain of youth, and I think we're obviously seeing it with him, you know? So he shows these images of him as Rambo. And he's in the gym, and he's doing all this crazy shit. But you know, the the Rambo he showed was not the Rambo with the bandana and the sleeveless, vast and the machete or the bullet belts over his shoulder? No. This time Rambo was an old cowboy. And a few weeks ago Stallone sent out a tweet at showed him in full rancher cowboy year, complete with a cowboy hat. And the chaps the first image he sent out simply said tonight we start shooting. All right. And the second image showed him on horseback and a cowboy hat. Boots in their oilskins at had said, comes a horseman wild, and free and fans left. Ecstatic messages responses for, hey, Cowboys the loan, you know, gearing up for the last rod into the sunset. Let me tell you something. I think this is gonna work, big time. I know you can't really wrap your mind around the loan as a cowboy an old cowboy, but listen to me. This is gonna work and I'm gonna tell you why it's gonna work because every time I've spoken to sly and I know him for about twenty five years now he always makes it work what he. Thinks he can do it never fails. He hasn't failed yet. Because the long has a way of tapping into America's inner self. It's inner psyche whether it's Apollo creed, wearing the red white and blue fighting and nineteen seventy six for the bison ten, he'll or it's or maybe he's echoing the most haunted Vietnam veterans when John Rambo and Colonel Trautman going back and forth. And Trautmann's says it's over Johnny and Rambo says, nothing is over, you know, gotta admit it. I saw that picture of sly on the horse with the chaps in the hat. And I said, oh, shit broke back. Rambo, what the fuck is you don't. And also when a lot of hardcore Stallone fan saw that cowboy pitcher, they streamed Rambo's done. It's all over guys. I don't think so. And I'll tell you why. I think Stallone as usual. He knows his strengths and weaknesses, and he's going to do with Rambo, just what he did with rocky. And that is to gracefully have them exiting stage left, and I'll tell you some real quick. I was next to him when he began doing rocky Balboa and I got to really spend time with them and listen to what he wanted to do and how he wanted to portray that character. And one of the things we talked about when I sat there, I finished your audition and he goes, hey, wanna do this as a. Yeah, I mentioned is Talia Shire aboard, and he goes no Adrian's dead. I'm like, no, he goes, yeah, joins dead. She's fine with it. And he told me he. He cast this actress side. I think Geraldine username a really fantastic actress in Irish actress from Ireland. She did great, but she wasn't exactly a looker in our I member remarking like, oh, this is the new girl that makes you wanna fight and he knew enough to go, I I can't hire a ten. I can't do that. It's ridiculous. The crowd would hate me if I hire a beautiful woman who's cheering me onto win, he goes no offense to Geraldine us. She's great actress, but she's not a supermodel ten if I did that, it would fuck up the whole movie and he's right. So I know he knows what he's doing about the just the fact that he decided to kill off Adrian, which I don't think any rocky FAM would have agreed to and he'd get it any fucking worked tremendously. And there were a few things he told me back then and even before we shot the movie, you know, I'm. Talking ten years before that even twenty three years before that when I spent the day it is at his Miami home back when I was writing for the daily news and he was talking to me about his dedication to writing and creating and especially to the legacy of those two towers rocky and Rambo. And I like to think I remember everything but I don't. I really don't. You know, I, I, I do write a lot of things down whenever I meet a person, or I think I'm talking to someone who's particularly genius or somebody. I don't wanna think about ten years from now. I've, I've always written those conversations down any of I look. I think this podcast today is as much for me as it is for all of you because whenever I see Stallone about to make a fifth Rambo and this is coming after a second creed, not to mention the expendable HS and some other films he's done in between. Matter of fact, my wife I about a half hour ago. Says, do you wanna go to see a screening tomorrow? I go flat. She says us a semester loan movie ago, what fucking movie. And she goes escape plan to said, holy shit. He fit that into cheeses. He doesn't stop working. I literally cannot believe it's almost twenty years. He's almost twenty eight. Actually, he's almost twenty years older than I am. I cannot believe the energy he has to do all this work. You know, it doesn't make sense to me. And since it makes me feel like a failure, it also motivates me to get off my ass and just create some shit and work harder. I don't know how many actors around that. It would make you feel that way. I, he's my guy that makes me go, fuck this. I gotta get up earlier. I gotta do more and I gotta keep punching until I'm, you know, Tom, I can't lift my fucking arms anymore. That's what he does for me. So pick your actor or pick your who. Ever and work as hard as he does at his crap. But here's my point for this show today despite the fact that he created two of the biggest movie franchises of all time despite the fact that he's written eight scripts, he were, he wrote a lot more but aid script between rocky and Rambo, he's written over thirty scripts, but just eight for those two films. Generated nearly four billion dollars for the studios. He doesn't get a ton of love from Hollywood. I think they're fucking up. I can't believe he has not been awarded a lifetime achievement Oscar by. I really can't while he's still alive and creating, you know, Kim a fucking I know for a fact he's not angry about it. I think he's a little bit Bruce low bit little bit boost, but I'm pissed off. I'm pissed off. I'm dismayed by this. I'm saying if if I made a film with say George Clooney and the one I bet people I met Nali would would be more impressed like if I was in Syria or men who stare at goats or all brother, art, that whatever the fuck. You know, one of those Clooney vanity projects. I bet that'd be a big hit at a Hollywood party. Oh, h how was George Clooney? But when you walk into a party in Hollywood and say, you just didn't notice the movie. They don't circle around you to hear the stories. It bothers me, but whenever I go home or I'm speaking to regular guys and they know I was in rocky Balboa working with sly, I get instant power instant attention. Instant cachet. And had to tell you I trust regular guys a lot more than these mother fuckers in Hollywood. But it mystifies me that you know after over forty years in Hollywood and over fifty films Stallone's become for the most part a bit of a punchline. And it's bullshit. He needs that lifetime achievement Oscar, and I'm starting at right now with this podcast, I'm starting the drive. He's gotta get this. It's bullshit. He needs that a war. You can't tell me Spike Lee who's one one. Or Donald Sutherland or Cecily Tyson and picking three people at random. You can't tell me they've done more. They haven't half of spike. Lee's films were race baiting bullshit. Come on Cecily Tyson, wonderful actress, I know, but you can't tell me more than three films she was in. I know she was great and sounder. I saw that to forty five years ago for fucks sake. I get it Donald subtle in good actor. No doubt always plays a great prick. How many films as he carried the answer zero I can go on and on. But what I really wanna say is men like me. You know, we've got loyalty to sly. They, you know, we come from a different spot. You know why his his, the short answer because we're all sly guys like me were also vest or Stallone. There's nothing about me. That's Donald Sutherland. There's nothing about me that George Clooney there's nothing about me that's fucking Spike Lee, but all of me and my friends are sly, you know, back in nineteen ninety six. When I spent the day with him, I remember we walked around his home and our conversation was interrupted by a number of actors, asking him if he was working on anything. Are you writing anything sly? Anything? I'd be right for I remember Mickey rod called at one point sly actually rolled his eyes back then. And Nikki was like persona. Non grata sly was too. And he was sitting there, you know, saying, what the fuck can I do on that? You know, whatever I do right now gets turned down. We walked into a room. Any told me this is where right? This is where golden into my head and remember looking at the room an, you know, I look past the room passed the windows in the backyard. It was to sack shoes one statue of rocky one statue Rambo outside the window. And I said. What do you bother? You did it? Won't you relax. Look, those fucking statues. You create created two characters who are the two sides that live inside every man, the romantic guy in the warrior, the dreamer and the destroyer, the underestimated, and the misunderstood the lonely end. The loaner rocky Rambo, how many people have done that. And he said, yeah, well, I haven't thought about that, but I got more go. Fucking guy. He was downloads loved back. Then he had more to go. And here we are watching and looking at everything he had left to do. What are you gonna do with Tele guy like him to stop, stop, writing, stop, creating, and this is why champion him because as big and famous as he is, he still a guy like us. He gets no respect for what he's done. Well, he gets some respect but way less than he should and Hollywood will never completely come around and give him his due. Anna wish they could have seen the last day on that rocky Balboa shoot and Philadelphia. It's two thousand six. The movies basically done except for the last shot in the last shot is slide is gonna run up the steps of the Philadelphia library with his dog. And for whatever reason that shot was saved to be the lab. Shot of the movie and sly wants to do it in the snow tonight already wrapped. But I decided to stay to see this. This is fucking history and he says, nam, it's gonna snow, but there's no snow coming and all the cameras and should have set up. An older producers are looking at their watch, but burning money sly. You know, now it's gonna snow. It's not snowing and are producers tap in their fucking watches. Given sly that look that says, hey, come on fly, let's go, we gotta wrap this up, and these are the sons of the original producers who made the first rocky in nineteen seventy six. These are the sons of Bob Charles off and Irwin Winkler. This Billy charter of and Charles and David Winkler there now producing rocky Balboa and they're tapping their fucking Locher's like their dad did in seventy six and slides going. It's good as snow. Sly, forget it. We gotta move on. Fuck it. Make the shot without the snow, ten minutes later, a big fucking cloud comes over the city of Philadelphia, and it starts to snow. And it's one AM by the way. And as soon as the flake stock to fall sly starts his run up the steps of the library with the dog, and it's fucking perfect. And if you have chills at this point and you're fucking dead, you're nobody. It was like God knew. Sly needs snow, but it's what happened afterward after the shot was got there was sly sitting on a curb. The movie was wrapped, everybody started clapping. That's a wrap. Everybody picked big applause, hugs kisses the whole thing. Whereas sly sly sitting on a step, I wanna say, was crying, but he was really emotional and he sat there and you could see this shot meant more than any other shot in any other movie that he ever made any said quietly it's over. That's it no more rocky. And before the scene could get more Morlin. Kevin king Templeton. One of the producers came by and said, two months buck up, get up. Let's go. We gotta go. It was almost obscene to watch. I never saw Stallone as weak and sentimental. But he picked himself up and he walked away. And I remember thinking how easy would be to walk away in just not create anymore to just take it easy. Just live off the shit. You've already done my God. You've done a thousand things, but how can anybody just stop working when Stallone has had the kind of life he's had when you've got visits from legends? Like Charlie Chaplin. You hear the story. Oh, maybe you know this after rocky was made, you know, Charlie Chaplin sense loan a letter that said rocky reminds me of a little character. I used to play. We love for you to come to Switzerland and visit Elvis Presley got a hold of him and said, you've gotta show rocky at a theater in Memphis, and because the loan was too busy and too distractive, mother things in Hollywood. He never got back to chaplain. He never got back to Elvis and it haunts did this day, and that's not all Frank Capra got in touch with him too. When slide lost the Oscar for best actor, Frank Capra sent him a letter and said, take heart angels make note of things like this because it's fitting that the character you created rocky would lose that other people would take all the glory. I don't know how many other people in Hollywood. No. That's what's happened in his life. But if they did, it would seem awfully natural. That's the loan would be treated with more adulation than he is. Let me just say this. I Don, I, I know deep down the loan is a good guy, and I know he's come to terms with the town. He's made billions of dollars for the fact that they don't want to celebrate him as much as us regular guys. Do unlimited. You say that this next Rambo film is gonna strike a nerve and perhaps wake up this country's worst fears because it looks like Rambo is going to be writing wrongs and doing the law Pandu as he battles wicked criminals and outlaws south of the border, he won't be held in his knife in his teeth or tightening is banned data across his thick head of hair. But what's the loan will present to us is a quiet outsider who lives a simple life on a ranch in Arizona and he's deeply. Troubled and wrestling with PTSD. Of course he is and like a lot of Vietnam vets, he picks up work every can, but when a longtime family, friend and estate manager informs informs Rambo that have granddaughters gone missing after crossing into Mexico for a party Rambo sets off to find the kid. And what ensues is a violent descent into hell as ramble and covers a sex trafficking ring. You know what? What could be better than Rambo Boston up a pedophile sex ring. I mean, think about the power that right now with all that's going on in the world. This is perfect because whether you want to admit it or not, Stallone rescuing an American kit in the middle of a sex trafficking ring, south of the border is just what the doctor ordered. It fits. It's very Trump. It's very build that wall. It's just right because it feels like it's the kind of thing. John Wayne would have done many years ago and it's perfect because it was forty two years ago. That's the long got a couple of surprises when he was at the Oscars for rocky. The first surprise was seeing John Wayne walk straight up to him and say, hi, I'm John Wayne, welcome to Hollywood. And the second was Peter sellers the Pink Panther, take insta- loan aside and telling them remember the three inches son, Hollywood hates happiness. I'd say for the most part pita Sella's was right, but I think for looks like the final chapter in Stallone's Rambo saga Yopusif is true, and I think once this movie is in the can and it makes the rounds, maybe slide, we'll get the credit. He finally deserves and not be the punchline, but maybe the guy who did all the punching.

Rebecca Sounds Reveille with Arwen Becker

"The new Welcome to Rebecca. Sounds Reveille. This show is going to be hot hot hot because we are GONNA give you some information today that is going to really impact your resources lamb financially. This is something. That's I talked about here in there but I don't necessarily really zero in or hone hone in on well women in finance. So what's really exciting about my guest? Today as she is the owner of Beker retirement group and she is also the The training company life with Arwen. She has over nineteen years experience retirement planning and as a fiduciary. This is pretty exciting. There's lots to talk about today. She's met with thousands of women over the years. She's does speaking videos all kinds of stuff. What is powerful about this? Is it really impacts the way women are treated in the area of finance. And she does it through radio PODCASTS. Books Ends Thirty Plus Women. Only event type of things every year. I want her to share some of the strategies that you can use today as well as other insight that she alone shares with women across the nation and globally so welcome to day owner financial advisor author National Speaker of Beker retirement group. Welcome our win bucker ink here. I'm so happy to be here. Thanks for having me Rebecca. I am absolutely delighted. Because what sets you apart from a lot of financial advisors that do come on the show is you have a mission to impact women and Finances how that helps a lot of the topics that come to the table here. Is We talk to people who are victims of domestic violence and the majority of them are women who don't necessarily know what to do financially because they've been dependent on someone and here they have a situation but in the whole entire. T. A. Womanhood. There's a lot for us to learn A. You are the expert. Yes that's true that's there you know there's so much that we can talk about certainly as it relates to women and Finance. I think just the Really quick background how I found myself here is. I was divorced before as zoology crafts with. What is that? We all agree on twenty four and I'm divorced and I have no idea how to handle my finances and I ended up going on a single job. Interview got hired by a financial planning firm. That was brand new that gentleman now twenty years almost twenty years later has been my business burner for all those years but my husband for fifteen years as of next week so no you never know how you get into things but there was twenty four trying to figure out how to do. Now pay my own bills to. They had never had to do that. And yet going into working in the area finance actually found that I really early enjoyed it but what I found over all of those years I saw my husband dealing with people and just growing up in this industry is. There's a huge huge need for women to be educated in the area finance and I will be the first one to raise my hand and say I have really for a lot of my life relied on a man. Take Care of me saying I'm playing as you were saying this. I'm envisioning how I don't know. Probably our generation grew up kind of having males in certain fields doctors. Cpa's lawyers police officers. We don't generally think of women being so studious in meticulous about numbers. And things like that so this is really awesome. Yeah and you know what I think. I kind of break the mold a little bit to be honest with you because I I am a numbers girl. I did well in math mouth. Visit a thing that I was. I was good at but I've kind of from the beginning of this journey is still kind of kept my fingers in my ears like this nine. I don't WanNA learn all the information because the way in which women are connected with is not through numbers and spreadsheets and big huge power. Point presentations right. That's that's what's really hindered a lot of women from getting the education that they need because they're bored to death of IT Brian so nobody wants to do it so they just leave him somebody else. Whether or you know avoided altogether or hire someone but not really know what the heck is going on right on so my really my calling in my focus is to inspire women because now the piece I mean we we know we need to get educated and we know we need to have some form of planning. We just don't want to be or to death so we just avoided altogether. And that's what really were on setting out to make it into connect women emotionally to the need and then that will allow them to go. Okay I I understand that. I need to get educated. And so here's what so just a handful of statistics I think are just so important to understand So eighty percent of men die married which means eighty percent of women die single. The is a big deal right. Darwin land eighty percent of single right. So we're likely going to be the last woman standing in so you have that and then you have these other cases where the average woman is bitterness fifty nine as young right I know. Nfl Gray divorce. The fastest growing segment of the population. Getting divorced people have been married longer than twenty five years that is devastating for women because oftentimes what women do they spend fifteen up to fifteen percent of their years out of the workforce. Because they're either taking ED's or they're taking care of parents much more likely than their brothers to care for parents. I know I know how that but then also so then on the flip side men only spend about one point six percent of their working years not working so for women if they're spending all his time caring for the people that they love and cherish right because they feel the right thing to do it means they're not putting money into their company plan all those years are not putting into social security and when they do for the likelihood of them receiving good. Wages has gone down dramatically. 'cause they've spent a lot of years not working right so you have all these things that are coming against us but yet we're in an industry that's still like you. Kinda send an speaks in his numbers. And it's you know it's kind of more of this male brain way of thinking and so a lot of women just kind of opt out. They just got a very their head in the sand and they don't get the education answer on. That's what I'm here to change. This is really awesome because we are wired a little different were multi-taskers and I'm thinking about all the things against women including when we do go into the workforce. It's very difficult for us to save money because we're spending it on different type expenses for the children are. I mean so. It isn't a kind of thing we are known as givers and boy do we give it all including giving the seed and the harvest. The harvest will then. We're left going way to say it. I don't want to burden on my kids. But then what are you left with? You know what I'm saying and so what we do. We don't want to be a burden but yet we are so generous by nature which is part of this is so it just infuriates. Me Is because I hear all the time candidate verbiage pat on the head of like. Oh isn't a great? You're doing those women's Events. What a Great Niche. And it's like a excuse me women make up more of the US population than men. Do this is not a niche. This is a need tremendous need. And then you have you just you have this way of talking to them which just goes over their heads or again. Boris them to death. And they're just like you know I am kind of. I'm not going to be handling all of this. And so that's really where we need to come together and say how can we educate and make sure that we're getting the feedback that we need because what you also send to You know just how busy and women giving what they have is. There's also this underlying tone. I heard a lot of times from male and female advisors and fight will women are flaky. So I don't know about this whole thing of doing I know and I it out because women are busy. They're busy doing what matters they're busy. Taking care of kids are taking care of their parents figuring out what needs to happen and idea of dealing with our finances doesn't seem like the highest priority and so it gets put on earner organs assigned to a spouse who will likely pass away before they do and then they're still now facing. Oh God now I'm emotionally hurting and now I have to try now figure out my finances. So that's why. I don't care if you're married if you're not you have sole responsibility of your own financial picture because you're gonNA be the one handling it most likely at any point that you look in your life some point in their. You're going to be the one responsible and you better know out works that you're going to be cared for in saying. I know what you're saying and I think that what you just said was well stated and really needing to be heard grasped sunk in and ready to make changes. Because you're you're absolutely right and we don't really think about that. The fact that you identify this and said I'm going to address this and help this Fill the needs so that it's not there anymore and this empowers not only the woman who needs this distance in the financial area but the ripple effect. Because we do care for everybody else this Ryan able to do more for other people and In it's it's just a it's a really good lake we have. It's not I mean. We're just not skipping stones anymore. We can actually seeing some things in and create major waves. That are audited. Well because women hold more wealth in the country now than men do and what? What's so crazy and this is why am I. Why am I? Training companies are willing to train other female advisors to do women's events because thirty trillion dollars in the next thirty years is going to be transferred from the baby. Boomer's kids that's more than a trillion trillion with a t huge text. Us can't even handle that amount of my think everything's bigger in Texas. But if thirty trillion dollars going in there estimating two thirds of that going to women and the next twenty to thirty years why in the world as an industry as a whole the financial industry. Why wouldn't women be the number one focus instead of kind of this thought as all get around to it instead of going noon Anna Women and communities when women have money and are financially empowered? You've already hit on it. They are generous. They will give to the people that they love. That's why Third World countries that's why they empower women and give women small business loans is. They beat him back into the community but when a woman is educated. She can't pass that onto her kids or her grandkids. And it just as this generational curses continues or penn state but the same can be reversed. If we're empowered understanding our finances then we can help generation coming out behind us the know. How do I start and take care of this piece? That will be a part of my entire existence on this earth. How do I pay for things whereas money come from my safety and security and freedom and all the other things that come along with it but again men and women they see very differently and so it's about how do you make how an industry has been doing it for so long and empower women to go? I can do this. I am capable. I am and I don't have to be bored so I'm pretty excited about this. In my next question for you is going to be twofold because with your company you do training so do you not only trained individuals to address their finances. But you also train women to be financial advisers. Yes so so. I have officially has three companies. So I have beker retirement group and Becker Wealth Advisory. That's my wealth advisory division and then. I have life with our wins so really becker. Retirement group is the holistic planning piece of retirement. Planning so now. It's the company that's our company that on my my husband and I that we were with individuals so we have multiple offices. We advisors work for us and then we serve our community in about how couples singles. Damore widowed or never married. Whatever might be an empowering them in the area retirement planning so if you know about right now one piece of it but it is. I transitioned our company. Over the last three years my husband doing public seminars for years and years of yours as I transitioned. I started to see this need for women's events. I started giving those about three years ago while the it was so al attended last this just this week I had to bowl events. I mean full full to the brim events. That was so awesome. But what I saw was there were so many women who received all of these same mailers to come to a dinner and learn about finances. That kind of stuff. Bright women well educated breadwinners for their household yet. They still didn't come to a financial seminar because there was something that was impeding there and maybe they felt either subconsciously consciously. I don't really want to sit next to a married man with his wife and he's GonNa tell me how smart he has. These are things like here. Finally got an invitation other facebook or meal or something like that may God. Something said women's only it wasn't that he was going to be presented by women because male have some male friends do these events and just absolutely hit out apart but when they saw that it just said women only on it that they knew that there was going to be a safety at that table of sitting next to another woman next year. Another woman and women are communal. Being's right so there's just this camaraderie community that begins out and so we saw at and it was just like Oh this is really powerful and so what we did is a company is. We began to pit it where where we used to do. A lot of just open advanced. Everybody and I started doing more. And more of these women's events to where now we're doing eighty percent of our events or women's only ooh that's J- and yet there's still a lot of people who just Kinda go women's events I don now it's just seems a little bit whatever Foo foo or I just don't like women are right right do emotional or something. I'm like Oh my gosh. They are the funds freaking events because women engage. They're like best friends before even takes Asian. They're being in there laughing and this last night I was dinners redone. Last wine had been drunk and they were all sitting there with water and more than eighty percent of my room was still there and most of them didn't know any anybody when they came in and just being and making funds changing cards and new friends. And I'm going on and and that's what happens with women and so we just saw not as such a need for For the community. And that's what Becker retirement group now focuses on not be so I kinda alliance or two short question and then what life with. Arwen is is training other female advisers around the country to do those events because there are nuances that you can't just run it through the same felker annexed to get the same results because you need to treat women differently for different. Don't kill me. What the powerpoint me. Tell me how I'll be. Okay tell me on the basics of understanding you know my whole picture but not in a way that starts to lose the audience. Because you're going into too much detail. That's not what we need. We just need to know that we'll be able to understand. It have an Aha moment. Give me the details. I want him with the rest of the time. Just let me know. I'm going to be okay. How do I know that the answer to that question? And that's really what life are went is to help train advisers to be able to adequately express that message to so many people in our community who are not getting reached because they just don't feel confident going to a seminar that has been in the room. I love it. I Lau Scott E-e-e-e-no you said something. That's really crucial. Though because we live in a world of non safe places everything is now a susceptibility of something. We're seeing a lot of really hate related crimes on the rise. There's just a lot of things so I think what you said is really important because you said they feel safe. They know that they're going to a safe location. And what's really neat when women get together is we all know we multitask. So there's no offense or feeling like you're obligated to have direct. I contacted every second. Because you're you're wanting to engage with all these different things we all had it and we can bring them in and do an ad carried this momentum because of all of these things that we take in in our wired is really really neat that you mentioned that because we failed to think about that but that is something behaviorally we do. Yeah and one of the other things. Behaviorally that That we see is that the one of the significant differences between how men and women How they think so one of the questions that I ask you at the seminar is. What does money mean to you? Have money in your hands or in your bank account and you've seen I have saved money. What is money mean to you and when I asked that to a room full of women only the answers are always the same security freedom choice? Not being burden on my kids. They're all of these things that are emotionally tied to really to an intangible there something core of who I am. This is what matters to me. It's not I wanNA vote. I WanNa Golf all day. I wanted to travel. We'd say do they wanna do those things because they sit down with them? They want to travel. But that's not what women I gravitate toward right men think for differently they're very goal oriented so if. I have the moment that I throw him into. The room announce the same question. I do get that travel. You know bowed RV Golf. You know those kind of things which are not bad but it just goes to show you how differently a woman thinks or how man thanks and so for women to understand what was the value. I have and then making my financial decisions based round that and especially for couples. I always say you know I figure you want to stay married. That's what we're trying to do right. We don't WanNa have you? Are this grain of more than just great but money is the main reason that people divorce. So why and it's because women think values they think in this term of this intangible whips the core through I am whereas men think of more tangible right and so how do we get both of them on the same page so when money decisions are now needing to be made they align with the value. The both both spouses have and they have talked about a lot of a lot of people. Just haven't drilled in what that is so it's really important for men. Sit Down and go. Well what does money mean to me? That's not a. That's not this tangible piece right. What is it does? Is it security? Which for a lot of money based want security they don't have to you know drain their assets because they have to go into a nursing home and leave their wife destitute but sadly because of improper planning that happens all the time I mean. Eighty percent of women on social security widowed women live below poverty line and the saddest part. Yeah is almost a mind blowing statement Lino really think of the gravity of waiting since ended the the worst part the part that even makes it. Even heavier is that most of them didn't win their spouses living. Because what happens is he gets sick. He drains the assets because of course she would take care of him right. She would WanNa make sure he got care. Drains the assets and now she could easily be living and other ten years. Maybe Need Care Seminar cinemas will and what is she left with? And that's why I was saying in Joe. It's somewhat of tongue in cheek. Man is not a plan. Nobody is because through really big button this as good but it is true. I mean you just can't you can't rely on that because chances are if you are married. You're going your spouse is going to pass away before you do. So if they're the one that kind of thinks they know the plan you're going to be the really finds out whether or not it worked or not an point. He's already passed away. You have a good point though in that how much we do and how much we are. You know the anchor to so many different things. So if we're not thinking financially about the anchor for down the road we are going to be lost. And that's obviously what has happened and why you have found a way to fulfill a need. That is so almost desperate from I know you know And it's unfortunate because like you said being educated that's all it takes to make the difference because when educated were we have the power to make the changes that will will lead us in the right direction. Try why this is just so neat. So her I want to know too about your book because the audience will need to get a copy definitely and it will allow them to be able to start really bringing in this idea and then hopefully get to one of one of your seminars or get more involved where they say what. I could do financial planning Yup. Yup Yeah so is in going through compliance right. Now we've been throwing around the title that It's feeling right and right now. Is She handled it? And so will you Because it's really based around my mom and my mom. Just you know taking the reins helping my sister and I B because really Dad Dad could not provide for my family financially and so my mom handmade all her clothes or two job as a lunch lady. Hate it but she didn't so she benefits and she was home when my sister and I were home and You know all these seems to sacrifice to make sure that we were cared for and now is is in her approaching. Retirement seeking officially retired. Right now. She's she's still kind of deciding whether or not she's ready to do that from Costco but but seeing how she has gone from less than zero and fence down when. I was a kid to now a woman who will very much be able to retire comfortably and do what she wants to do. And so the book is really it's based allow around my upbringing and what that was like The mistakes that I made entrusting that A man would air for me financially. And how that imploded on the twenty four on the had obviously time to make the changes and turn the ship and go four and and learn new things but really the book is and so excited so it is I mean.

I'M GONNA talk about market risk and how that affects people but I'm GonNa tell you in this story about me getting tax one hundred ten pound cougars. So that's why more exciting than me telling you about. Marcher is it is boring. Way is so now.

So let me ask you. I just with what we've talked about. I know that this is really radiating end emanating to so many people what you have said and how much they need to get on board with making some changes because it's going to be easier and it's going to be something that is exciting instead of owning and Blah and black and white women dealing color or do it's like new splash some besides read.

The 2019 Ford Ranger

"This episode of Car stuff is brought to you by autozone and I want to tell you a little bit about the free autozone fix finder service because it's a service that I use just recently and it was extremely easy a US I had a check engine light that was on my dash and it was driving me insane I had no idea what was going on but I went there and had it checked out and they found out that it was just simply a faulty fuel cap more about the free autozone loaner tool program visit autozone dot com get in the zone autozone more I don't know if you want to call it streamlining or what but there were some minor updates to the body the second generation came about and around nineteen ninety three until about nineteen ninety seven trim packages different options you know a little bit of exterior and interior changes and things that shifted around and then then they began production in south wchs. Hi Welcome to car stuff and I'm your host Scott Benjamin and for today again I'm going to and then the third generation nineteen ninety eight to two thousand and then of course there's a facelift on the third generation as well so you know over time they just try to modernize these things with around from about nineteen eighty-three these are model years nineteen eighty-three until about two thousand eleven so that's right there that's twenty nine years of production and for out of a personal note back in high school this would have been back in the late eighties I graduated in nineteen eighty nine I had a friend named Steve and Steve owned a Ford Ranger a little truck and if you look back at the first generation of Ford Ranger that's the kind of I'm talking about the very first one at the square headlights it's tougher to describe it more than that it's just him to and from school it was a good car to get back and forth from home to school and back and forth but we did use it as a work truck on many many occasions we either the cup and I believe it was a first generation for ranger pickup. I don't know what exactly the model you're was but it had been closer to the nineteen eighty three version then ah pick up back in the day it's that's changed for twenty nineteen but again back then it was a compact pickup We used it as a work truck believe it or not it was a daily driver for us through this one solo no guest today nothing like that but I wanted to talk about the the Ford Ranger I it's a product that is coming back into its production line haul stuff in the bed or we even had a trailer I mean it was able to pull a decent sized trailer lawn equipment and leaves and yard debris and all that kind of thing overall it was really a saw if you were living somewhere outside of North America that's really nothing new you I mean you've had it for quite some time but here in the North American market it's something that has been gone for a significant it wasn't brand new by any means it was silver had a had a four cylinder engine I know that trying to think of everything about this thing it was very very small it was a combat nineteen it's back and it's going to be back here in the US market and it's of course had some faceless along the way I wanna talk a little bit about the the history of of the vehicle amount of time now it's been gone at least seven years maybe eight depends on when you're listening to this but we're in production here in the United States for a significant amount of time and it just kind of went away it was the one that again my friend had then there was a facelift that happened around nineteen eighty nine to nineteen ninety two they continue to sell the first generation but it was just a little bit updated had just a little bit and and some of these experts the experts actually began in around nineteen ninety five I think that's when Ford Ranger began to be available in select lead in South American countries so they started to expand I guess expand the horizons they allow them to be purchased around the world and they have been in production ever since A pickup truck it was called the Ford Courier here in North America and the courier was actually a Mazda rebadged Mazda B eighteen hundred so that was that was well as the the current vehicle like the you know what you can expect to see an Ford showroom is very very soon and cash worst I start you know what actually I'm GonNa Start with a macos coming back as well so that's going to happen twenty twenty who knows maybe we'll we'll put together a show about that as well and now that we're talking about the Bronco I guess I should mention this the I guess maybe the the history of the Ranger the Ford Ranger nameplate rather because this is not the first time in nineteen eighty three was not the first time when Ford road like their free autozone fix finder service free battery testing and free autozone loan or to a program the free autozone fit finder service analyzes your specific legal information to is that the new Ford Ranger is going to be manufactured at the Ford Michigan Assembly plant in Wayne Michigan along with a new Ford Bronco so right there at that same assembly plant mini pigs small pickup rather but there were several generations of these infect here in the United States over those twenty nine years the first generation was nineteen eighty-three until about nineteen eighty eight Che's supposedly coming back in twenty twenty We'll see how that goes I mean you know I you know things happen but there is a kind of an interesting tie in here to production I guess over and just go to autozone and use their free autozone fix finder service get in the zone autozone welcomed car stuff production of iheartradio's how stuff works million ASC certified technicians autozone will test your battery for free and help you find out what's wrong so you don't need to spend money on extra parts you don't need the free autozone loners happened so edsel ranger was the first time that Ford used that name and then between nineteen sixty five and nineteen eighty-one ranger was used to denote the different trim packages after the break autozone has the free services you need to help you get back on the Shen Code and mileage together to help identify the most likely cause the information provided by the free autozone fix your service is verified by data from over five point five again this might not surprise you if you're a listener was in the in nineteen fifty eight the edsel ranger was introduced as the base trim level of the edsel model range and that was nineteen fifty eight when that on the Ford F series pickups the full-sized pickups as well as the Ford Bronco and The ranger line actually served as the mid to top trim level visit autozone dot com today to learn more about the free services getting the zone autozone now with all this talk about the new ranger and come with operating instructions to show you exactly how to use them with over five thousand six hundred locations nationwide autozone is here to help you save time and money with their free services wine or a model like that happens to be built in one plant that usually typically just keep it right therefore the extent of it I mean if it does move once that's unusual but to have three different producer when nineteen seventy two until about nineteen eighty two of ten years for that and that's when Ford pickup the ranger nameplate for this compact truck the other two places that it was used and the leader in the in the market I guess for that size vehicle in as far as sales go a lot like the Ford F series which has been what decades of top-selling vehicle but the a feature that everybody really liked and enjoy their top sellers but they had to make room for the production of some of these bigger. SUV's bigger pickup trucks people wanted the bigger vehicles and this is she be a mid sized truck is going to be in the mid size market they're basing this on the idea that the success of other models that our competitors to this you know the trying to think of what other one back when fuel prices were at an all time low and you know just back to kind of that idea that excessive weight and size didn't matter at that time but then you know we larger scale than just here in the North American market but again they're back here for twenty nineteen and there's several things you know let's talk just a little bit about that the the twenty nine years that it was produced here North America the truck was actually built on three different Ford assembly plants or on a different assembly lines and and that's pretty unusual usually I used the ranger name and might surprise you or maybe not I'm not sure if your car stuff fan you've already heard about this but the nameplate was used on three different for those vehicles so if you had a s series that was arranger it was either mid or top trim level and same with the Ford Bronco and by the way got not breaking news but I mean Ford the Ford kind of pulled that back a little bit a couple of times here and there and you know it's it's just going through these different fluctuations where people want different things at different times and for just kind of gave up on the Rangers Certain Twenty eight thousand one hundred and twenty dollars and then there's the the top level which is the Larry it and Larry addition is right around thirty two three hundred ninety thousand so it does thinker might have thought it would start at and the X. There's three model lines here that we are trim levels rather for the Ford Ranger at least in his first year and twenty nineteen and this is coming right from four outlines of eagles now of course you know the one that we're talking about you know the primary one here is the Ford Ranger many pickup truck of the compact pickup truck came about in nineteen eighty three and that replaced tool program offers access to over one hundred specialty tools. All you have to do is leave a deposit burrowing in need and get the job done right tools from the free autozone loaner program is there are there's the Shetty Colorado with a bigger one like the crew cab that has four wheel drive there's the Honda Ridgeline which again all wheel drive. There's the Toyota Tacoma same thing you know the more decked out with some of the the fancy bells and whistles and some of the fun stuff on them you know all the options so you get real fancy with the options the cost can go up to something like forty five thousand go up significantly from that point now also want to point out that I'm reading a few articles here from current driver road and track places like that that review these vehicles and they say that long little truck though I mean we we can talk about some of the features that make it desirable you know like why you might want to buy one and and honestly maybe the number one thing that you should consider is the A and of course it has handling and maneuverability that is is better than the F one fifty just due to its size I mean that's inherently in part of the design is just going to dollars so you're talking about forty five grand for a mid size pickup and when you see the size of it forty five grand might seem like an awful awful lot for a pickup truck I mean it's definitely a market for this vehicle and forces bringing the ranger back hoping that they can cashing on some of that success and that it can be a a smaller but still solid one thousand nine hundred eighty three to two thousand eleven ranger one of the most popular pickups on the road but it disappeared is the car companies started move toward oversize trucks and then you know of course SUV mostly steel body that's used there are some elements of the vehicle that our aluminum and that would be the hood the front fenders and the tailgate which are really the only areas the power plant goes they have used the ecoboost engine again so it's the two point three liter ecoboost engine it's right around two hundred and seventy horsepower which has a Colorado's really kind of the barometer for these mid size truck sales and I guess the sales on those are up something like eighty three percents two thousand fourteen so there's comma the XL model which is kind of the base level Ford Ranger is starting right around twenty four thousand three hundred dollars the xl tea which is the mid range is right around this I have in the past talked about the transmission I believe it's an eight speed transmission that was on my wife's jeep product she had a a jeep renegade it could just you know of course you can get one for twenty four three but it's not going to have many bells and whistles it's going to be pretty plain the ones that they tend to send to these These automobile magazines are a little bit in two thousand eleven but not entirely as I said you know they they started those exports that went to South America Argentina. You know the Latin American The Latin American ranger which was around for to aluminum for these pickup trucks. Now in its ED courses high strength aluminum or military grade or however they want to market the stuff but the steel frame again mostly you know over looking at if you're looking at a Ford F one fifty if you don't need something quite that large if you want some just a little bit smaller it does provide better fuel economy so that if you need the trailer join package and has a ten speed automatic transmission which all right we've I need to pause here from talk about the ten speed automatic transmission because at three hundred and ten pound feet of Torque so it's pretty strong I think it's a decent little work truck again like my friend Steve's truck was you'd be surprised how much how much you can do with a small truck like that that way it has a high strength steel frame which is actually pretty nice it supports a mostly steel body which is was really good because there's a big push to move we're GonNa get to that you know the specs and you know the information about it and you know what makes it different or unique or interesting I still want to talk about you know the nineteen eighty three to two thousand eleven Ford Rangers just to live we already owns one of these and if you do have an issue with that transmission or actually any transmission that has you know upwards of six years when when you get up to you know the eight ten never could find the right gear to be in whether it was going uphill downhill flat road whatever it was the thing was constantly searching for gears and it just didn't ever feel right to me automatic options as well it's not just adding different engine transmission combinations or you know whatever the case may be you're starting to add things like the chrome packages and the alternative to its f one fifty line that it's such a popular seller the pricing laid out here right now with the with the pricing on this because it's it's actually more affordable than you might be a difference in manufacturers it could just be this one was not working right or whatever but I had a heck of a time with that eight speed transmission the automatic searching for gears it was like it someday I'll take one for a test drive in Suss it out for a little bit and see if you know I can report back you anything positive or negative on that 'cause I don't know I I would love to hear from somebody who maybe don't sometime th the global ranger I guess is what they call it but you know the thing is once they did that in two thousand and eleven there were still a lot of people that really wanted the ranger to return has its raptor line of the F. One fifty the that whole F- line product outstanding vehicle performance vehicle I guess if you can call it off road performance really but right now as far as appearance or the FX offroad appearance packages or you know things like that so look carefully into that and right now you know this is another thing that we should talk about Ford double cab to a Tacoma 'cause we'll talk about you know vehicles in this class that are closely matched to what the Ford Ranger you're going to see on the streets is going to look like and behave like but the we're aluminum issues right now they're saying they're saying that you know there's a chance that eventually this thing might go the same way as the F. One fifty with you know the more aluminum used as far as the automatic is a little bit smoother in the in the Ford Ranger and the only way to find that out I guess would be to get some seat time in this thing and and to be able to drive which I haven't done yet but I would love to so maybe season you know we've heard this story many many times from different manufacturers they started to drop some of their smaller product you know those were the fuel-efficient smaller vehicles in the lightweight and head under service now the free autozone fit finder services something where they analyze your specific vehicle information your code and mileage together to help identify the most likely cause and of course maybe it wasn't smoothness issue maybe it was a you know software issue I don't know maybe it was the manufacturer could have just been flawed to begin with but I'm hoping that this ten speed US seven thousand five hundred pounds of is the the towing limit that's if you have the trailer towing package which of course an add on which costs you more money so weigh the pros and cons honey with their free services visit autozone DOT com today to learn more about their free services getting the zone autozone the debris you know earlier I mentioned that autozone provides a free service it's really quite helpful it's called the free autozone fixed speed transmissions I think find a lot of problems sort of like what I have and and a maybe that's not the case in every situation but again I I'd love to hear from listeners about that Raptor version of this whole thing and maybe we can do another podcast about that because that will be an exciting one to drive I'm sure a a mid range or I'm sorry mid size pickup that has perform zonal test your battery for free as well and they help you find out what's wrong so you don't have to spend money on parts the you absolutely do not need the free autozone loaner tool program offers access to over one hundred specialty tools so things like break tools or something that you might rarely use you don't have to purchase the tool all you have to leave a deposit bar away you need and get the job done right tools from the free autozone loaner to a program come with operating instructions to show you how to use them with over five thousand six hundred locations nationwide autozone is here to help you save time and percents and you know we're talking about a good seventy eight years now so there's a lot of people that are pretty excited about seeing a return now it is coming back as a a slightly larger vehicle it's going is the raptor package goes for the ranger they're saying that right now they don't have any plan to do anything like that but I can just about guaranteed in the next couple of years they're going to come out with is twenty one miles per gallon which is the best in class and it's only one mile per gallon behind Honda Ridgeline and it's titled the Chevy Colorado four the highway mileage and the highway miles it's for a smaller compact pickup truck like that it's pretty unusual for that to happen just found that kind of interesting and you know what we're going to have the rest four-cylinder vehicle which is competing against a lot of six-cylinder competitors now the six cylinder vehicles That I mentioned were the Chevy Colorado I didn't mention that these were six hundred before but the ridge line which is also cylinder and the Toyota Tacoma but it's very comparable in just about every case with all of those competitors so the ranger I guess is comments on level with you know some of the year the raptor line I think that'll be exciting to report on but you know before we get too much further into this we're going to have the rest in just a moment a bit larger than the previous Rangers got a pick up truck bed. It's not the most aerodynamic vehicle in the world of course so you have to give something there and of course you've got the ability to haul things it's my disclaimer by one or don't want I don't care either way so I'm looking at the I think you know I don't have a whole lot more to share with you about this car and we're back in you know what I've neglected one thing we were talking about the different models and I think I might have just hinted at this but the mileage on these things is actually pretty decent for truck I suppose going on these because there were there was a lot of interest in this vehicle coming back a lot of talk surrounding the ranger and the Bronco coming back so we'll probably talk about the Bronco too but I am not a bit they were extremely popular here in the United States in a lot of people might wonder why they even went away in the first place I mean what what what was the problem because they were top selling they were they were the after you know put it in that context but the city mileage in particular at twenty one miles per gallon that's across all vehicles so the excel-excellent Larry at the city mileage is it's twenty six so not the great and it's not fantastic miles you're not getting like a city car mileage or anything like that but again it's a small pickup truck in the cabins on then when we're doing these episodes you know about specific vehicles specific new vehicle that I'm not selling these I'm not trying to to get you to buy one or anything like that I just I want to get the discussion I understand that but honestly like I am just overall I just wanted to say that I I was excited about talking about the Ford Ranger and really use this kind of a springboard to to get everybody again I'm not being paid by Ford or anything like that I guarantee you that and I just found the line interesting and you know I had some previous experience with the ranger in the past I guess my they had brother for protesting the base price again three five three but the one that they tested this is way more expensive it's almost forty two thousand dollars so the you know poetry or whatever so I would say that twenty one twenty six across the lineup is really not that bad at all we did talk about the competitors a little bit I wanna say that the new ranger of course horsepower already two hundred seventy horsepower three hundred ten pound feet of Torque ten speed automatic which I'm not a big fan of it we'll see talked about the mileage it seems like you know there's just a lot here twin up significantly for whatever they had on their test vehicle it's a little bit heavy it's a four thousand five hundred thirty six pound vehicle so what does that raise right around two tons it's of course standing up to the competition they're they're they're putting it right in the middle there catcher sound like I'm selling Ford's done I should be a

"All human life has intrinsic value including life in the womb. That's why focus on the family is standing up to help the world see life, join the movement to in abortion and love every heartbeat text heartbeat to seventy, two thousand. That's heartbeat to seventy, two thousand and Mark Your Calendars for September twenty sixth to witness, a transformational pro-life event were calling see life twenty twenty learn more at focus on the family dot com slash C. Life. As. We get older I know you need to watch my weight more carefully I have. I can't suck it in like a used to I'm trying to keep physically fit, but my knees and my back, slowing me down well. My Dad had his first heart attack at age sixty and I don't want to be like. My doctor says no more sugar, salt, fat, or caffeine as well. Give up eating. Well, maybe you can relate to those comments. It's been said that with age comes wisdom, but also brings up some health concerns especially as he hit the middle years and That's our topic today on focus on the family. Your host is focused president and author Jim Daly and I'm John Fuller John The middle years. I don't think I like it's an expanding number arrives in the middle years. Well listen. Turning fifty is definitely major milestone. I am gliding through this decade of the fifties. And I think it's safe to say. We're no longer young one of the things I feel I mean just doing regular stuff like yard work. I'm far stiffer in the joints and the muscles than I used to be. It's like what have I done. Oh, just yard work. It's sad, yeah I used to be able to a weekend. Warrior it around the House and do yard projects and stuff with no ill effects at all, and now I have to schedule a physical therapy appointment if I'm planning on doing it. That's my point. Well, listen to complain a lot about our ills today, but. We think this is very valuable. We have a wonderful guest, actually two wonderful guest to talk about this topic of fitness I think it does apply to anybody probably over the age twenty five or thirty and you. If you're below fifty, don't tune out because these are the things that you need to be aware of and there's always exceptions of course, but stepping over that line and I think fifties is a good line to think about because it's significant for a lot of reasons, but you're no longer building your life. You're kind of in it. You're confident about who you've become hopefully in Christ with humility. Your households in order. Things are going pretty well in that fifties decade, but The one thing that can slip is your health, and we're so fortunate to have the expertise of a former colleague and friend here. Dr Walt. Larimore joins us. He's been practicing medicine for nearly forty years, and currently works as an occupational physician at concentric, and you see health here in Colorado Springs and what was the vice president at Focus and physician residents for us from two thousand one to two thousand four. He's an educator, medical journalist and author of more than thirty books, including fit over fifty make simple choices today for a healthier happier you star website to get your copy. The link is in the episode notes, and I get the privilege of also introducing my wonderful wife Jean. Who I asked to join us, because we needed a female perspective at the table so gene welcome back well, thank you. It's always a pleasure being here and I'm excited about. The fabulous content. Of this book and this interview today in it isn't just for those over fifty. Yeah, that is true and it is good to have both of you here. Okay well, let's start with general definition of good health. You know we always check that box right? Excellent health, good health, fair poor. Poor monks I mean really I mean that's got to be a lot of Christian honesty to say yes. It's poor I mean we're all going basically good enough. Good health. Hope hope it's good enough. I'm planning out of being good. Guys looked like it hadn't even had a birthday ten years griots. Be Back go for. What. By conundrum was I, was asked that question, I just finished residency Duke I did residency in Family Medicine Sports Medicine and then Barbara I went out to the mountains of North Carolina to a little town called Bryson City town of nine hundred people. You've written about that and some of your books, nine hundred people. Eight Baptist churches. And God bless. One of everything else, but. A second grade teacher called me and asked me if I would come as a new doctor to town, but I come speak her class and I said sure I'd love to. What about she said about what is health? Thought well I can take care of sick people and disease people, but what is hell it really. I thought my goodness. What is it and it actually led to a research project I? I was doing some research training at the time. So I surveyed. Two hundred healthcare professionals help policy people in sixty countries around the world and I. Ask them. What is health? What are the top three factors that you would recommend to your family and friends? And from that research that this book and others have begun. But I thought what was fascinating was the secular researchers is secular policy? People defined health four ways. They said Yeah, there's physical health and we can have an impact on that. But there's also relational hill. There's family, health or social health and boy. These days. We've seen some social unrest. That's not healthy. And then there's emotional, and there's mental health, and of course with quarantine that we've all gone through. We've seen the impact of that. And then perhaps the motion portent of what I now call the four wills of health. Physical, emotional relational, the most important it's spiritual, and even the secular researchers realized that of the four wheels. That's the one connected to the power steering, and that's really interesting, and we're going to cover those four. But you know ironically gene, you kind of attached quickly to the relational tire in waltz analogy, which is funny to me because good health to me is okay. I'm an exercise enough and I'm going to eat pretty good. That's good health, but it is much more than that and Jean. I. Think is a woman in one of the reasons I wanted you here is you quickly gravitated toward the relational tire, and I'm thinking what that's like. In the way of good health I gotTa talk to somebody and I can't go exercise. Doesn't that get in the way of good? This guys think girls think well. I wouldn't say before I saw waltz book. I thought of just if someone were to ask me. What is good health? I would've thought Diet and exercise. But you've helped me realize what is true in my life that it is much more than that and yet the relational aspect is significant and not just for women. Thank for all people by the. So that's why I'm eager to hear while to your inside on all of this well, let's touch on that one for gene. Sake, let's go to the relational wheel, and then we'll move to the physical and the next time. We're going to have you back. We'll talk about the other two, but what's the relational side of it? Well all four of those wills, physical, emotional, relational, spiritual are interconnected. You cannot be healthy in one. Unhealthy and the others. It just doesn't work if it's sort of like if your car if one of the tires starts to go flat. Or starts to be out of alignment. You're not going to be able to go as fast as you want or as far as you want. And if you try to drive with that thing, wobbly, your repair bills getting more expensive the mile. Let me just say can confirm that. Because yesterday we went on a bike ride. I want to. Back, wheel was low. And it was much more difficult. I'M NOT GONNA. Say Gene beat me to the house, but she actually did to. The House can writing on a flat tire, and so with relationships funny. As a physician, most of the men I see are there not because they're not healthy? It's because a woman in their life. Said you go are else. It's the women in their lives. The daughters, the sisters, the wives girlfriends were saying. Your wheels are a little wobbly. Get it checked. Let me ask you though wall really on the relational wheel in all seriousness again gender I think does play into this and I don't know that men. Survey men! Who's your best friend? How many of you have a best friend? A lot of people say I don't and so women gravitate toward that relational health pretty easily, not not always, but let's speak to the two genders in that regard. Women who are struggling with healthy good relationship and the men who just don't other than superficial, and I can be that way. Let's go play golf. That's fun. We don't really talk that deep good shot Nice Putt. How do we get into deeper relationship as men and it's critical to understand that it's it's critical. When we look at the example of Jesus, he majored in relationships. He had the three to whom he was. The closest, and the most intimate rested on each other's cheifs I mean really clubs. And then he had the disciples a group that he spent a lot of time with teaching, getting to enjoy and getting too late, and then he had the followers, and then, but he emphasized relationships, and we are commanded in scripture to act in every way as As he acted both with those of the faith, as well as I love my favorite name of Jesus, friend of sinners spent time with the tax gatherers and the heathen people that didn't know him that majoring relation well when we look at the medical research, what we find is that people who build positive affirming relationships and doesn't have to be a lot. Do better emotionally. They do better physically and spiritually. We cannot be as healthy as we're designed to be without that fellowship. That accountability scripture has forty one another's. That were to do with one another. Sorts a critical part of good now I just WanNa. Ask You. Did we cover the relationship wheel? Significantly are adequately. Well and I think it's important also to emphasize. Walt that you mentioned the positive relationships and that can be challenging. Because we do have friends or family members in our lives. That! Don't contribute to a positive relationship so. If. There's someone who's really negative and I can't help spin. The conversation can't help. Move it positive move in a positive way. They keep getting back to negative. I found myself kinda distancing from that a little more and I think that's probably healthy. I love the writings of John Wesley. The CO founder of methodism live back in the seventeen hundreds, but he was so concerned about the health of his family of his friends of folks that he fellowship with that, he actually wrote a little piece about S- called the healthy physic- and physical. Health back then, but he listed thirty seven principles of being highly healthy and several of them were relational, but one that you'll really resonate with Jane. It was actually a number one health recommendation. He said people should have those who are much about them around them. who are sound, sweet and healthy. Guy Like that idea. Positives finding those positive relationships, shedding the ones that are dysfunctional that are harmful to you and focusing on the positive critical part of our health. Maybe later we can talk about a test that I had that people can take that. They can actually measure their physical, emotional, relational and spiritual help just to see where you're at because we don't know unless we look at sort of like your bicycle tire. If you had just checked hair and that thing before you wrote. Gene and troy took off. You know race car driver. Okay I'm not going to let them get that far ahead of me. Well and I I know this may sound contradictory that just mentioned how important it is to have positive relationships, and of course, especially with family members or or Outside of our immediate circle, I'm not suggesting to cut people off in and to spend time in prayer and I. Do that and ask God to help me with that relationship and. Sorry I wasn't tracking with that. I'll do better well. It's not you. Want okay. I'm happy. Scene this. Okay, not talking to that person every single day. Well, we've had some really good conversations about being fit over fifty. I don't think we've touched on anything yet. We're about to specific to fifties. It's great stuff with Dr Walt Larimore. He has written this book fit over fifty and we've got that. you can find the link in our phone. Number in the episode notes at Walt in your book to John's point fit over fifty. Let's get to it. You identify five habits that can help us live ten years longer now. That's nice doctor transaction. I may have to start coming to you, but what are those five habits? Well. There's a tremendous amount of research on this, and it's not just fit over fifty. In fact, the folks that endorsed the book and a lot of been on this program. You'd think of Pat Morley and Pat Williams and Dr Gary Chapman and Jim Dailies Been. Once in a while. We're here and they're all said what a terrible title! It shouldn't be fit over fifty. It should be fit overall because the principles work for everyone of us, but particularly these five researchers at Harvard have been for over a decade. Looking at what is it that makes people the most healthy. If we had to look at something that would reduce the risk of premature death the greatest. What would it be? They've identified five habits that they say. Every one of us should employ number one never smoked never used tobacco. Go or go out with girls who? You go with girls. Number to maintain a normal weight. That was close to a normal weight. As you possibly can I don't like that one. Resemble that remark. Number three daily movement. Thirty or more minutes of movements I'm type of exercise five days a week number four, no are limited alcohol and number five, a high quality, nutrient, dense diet, a good nutrition plan, and the data on this is stunning. If you look at fifty year, olds just as an example, the average male who at fifty. These five things will live almost twenty five years longer. Think the mail has not doing that and the average female. That's doing that will live almost thirty eight years longer fifty. Eight years fifty eight percent increase in life expectancy starting at age fifty. If you do that and so subsequent to the publishing of the book, a number of the press vote pushed the Harvard people and they said well. Not. Everybody can do this or not. Everyone will do this I mean. Look around. What's USA living longer? If your life quality's terrible, for example they said, and so the researchers, the Harvard folks actually went back and looked back at it. They said well. What if I'm over weight? And I just can't get down to a normal weight. Am I doomed as they look back through their data's say well, what if you only have three? Or what have you have only four of these? Does it still benefit you and without question it? It does for example if you four of those five, and you're a female, then you're looking at another ten to eleven years of life expectancy over someone who doesn't have having four out of the by having four out of three out of the five three out of the five. You're down below ten years, but you're still ahead of the curve, so even a few of them makes a difference. What was even more remarkable was well. What if you get sick? If you have three of these are four of these are five of these studies at change, illness and answer is not just yes, but Oh, heavens, yes, it does so for example with people diagnosed with cancer. Who had all five? They lived twenty half of them live twenty three years longer. Of those who did not have any of the five only half lived about ten years longer with cancer. So you're making the case for sure they sure are, and the same thing showed up Jim for diabetes for heart disease. ARE KARST GONNA get older. Our wheels are gonNA. Get us. They're going to get wobbly. You know John. You're feeling when you you put it last. Year just do so. That happens in great. Great he may be a little underweight. Actually think, but if you want to reduce your risk of pre and the risk of those you love. With premature death. This are five things that you can begin. Pick one pick one of the five and concentrate on it, and when you conquer it, and you have fruit there. Go to the next. You implied one and I wanNA highlighted because my doctor seems to highlight it for me every time I see him. It's the BMI now I like BMW I don't like BMI so much. WHAT IS BMI? Let's. Let's just your body mass index combination of your weight and height. It's a mathematical formula. That's very complex. There's plenty of charts on the Internet and calculators on. What value is it i? Mean really well. It tells you if you're what they call normal weight versus overweight versus extreme, overweight versus obese class, one obese class to and Morbid obesity with each of those classifications. You move above normal. Your risk of premature death goes up and so it can become kind of a way to look at. Where am I? And what do I need to begin to think about? Peter may have missed that vision God gave him I think he did in the area of Kale. I don't think got said the Kale. Got said he'd everything but Kale is probably one of the unclaimed. Said you. TASTED, it's like! Wow, why eat that? Don't put a stumbling block in. A terrible allergy to Broccoli eat and I got a bad taste in my mouth. Certain that must be. Much all in Broccoli Kale. So we can you've been quoting a theologian about physical health, and there are some people in the Christian community who are either egg, and we fatalistic God knows my days, so whatever or be. What's the use because my physical body doesn't matter? What do you say to that well? Thank the Harris my physical body. That doesn't matter has been around. Since the first century because God clearly incarnated put into a body into Flesh, his only begotten Son, who was tempted in every way as we are tempted yet did not send who understands suffering and travail, who could have given up the spirit after ten minutes on the cross, but chose to suffer. chose to enter into our suffering. He has given us a body that he has divinely designed is divinely designed for it to operate well and when it doesn't. Win There are those diseases are disasters are disorders that had us and who comes to my mind. Johnny Erikson taught. Who is extremely healthy? Not so much physically because of the body because of Quadriplegia. But talk about a woman who's healthy, emotionally relational and spiritually highly healthy, even with a body that's not doing well, but with the promise scripture that one each of us will have that body. That's whole complete. No more pain, no more suffering, no more tears. The physical is critical God gives us four teas I believe to Stewart Mentor teach me. We always talk about time, treasure and talent. We don't talk about the temple of the Holy Spirit. That we are to Stewart and care for. And the purpose of this book was to help. People Steward the temple of the Holy Spirit not just for themselves, but as an evangelistic tool, this is a book you can give to your grandparents, your aunts and uncles, your older colleagues, because it emphasizes not just the physical, but also the relational, emotional and spiritual right, and we're nearing the end today Walt. We're GONNA. Come back next time and talk to the mental health components, those things in continued the physical, but let's turn that corner toward the physical, even more so. You know weightlifting is something you talk about and not gravitating gene seeking cherry picking no. Weightlifting is something you talk about. It's interesting for me up. Before covert I was I was doing well with that right Jean we were. Cleveland area. Yeah, you were doing more of the treadmill. and. I was in the weight room. Yes, but I was also in the winter, but I. Don't think you were in the cardio look. Tune in next time for the end of the story, exactly the point I was gonNA. Make because I had a pretty good one. Our routine and I was very happy with that and people I know would say yeah. It's great to do Weightlifting Jim, but you need to do more cardio. Much time doing great to speak to the benefits speak to the benefit of weightlifting and next time we'll talk about the benefit card. Well I'm so grateful for Dr Phil Bishop, Phil I wasn't Lsu filled was in Alabama boy, and it's an absolute miracle that we could work together. Didn't Lsu win? Does time when it was I'm glad you brought that. So but To Phil's exercise physiologists, that's his world is kinesiology as muscles that physical health and he makes the point. I think very clearly in the book that you need to combine especially as you mature. As we are. Looking at all of us. But that you combine that cardio. With the weightlifting, because if you don't even good cardio muscle mass drops five to ten percent. As, we age per decade, and so the dangerous with that how many of us don't know a relative or grandparent or aunt and uncle who didn't fall and get injured? And we now know with the right amount of muscular work that we can reduce the fall risk, but we need to combine the cardio with it and Jane. What was it that made? You want to do both? What was your motive for that? Oh, probably recognizing the loss of muscle tone in my upper body, especially so I've always loved the walking and Treadmill, but recognizing that I needed as I have gotten older I used to do a lot of weight training, and that stopped while I was raising children things. Bottle. You guys have a working out together as Barbara I've started doing that over the last decade. That's changed. Our relationship is Jimmy say. Pressure I mean guys listening this understand time pressure. But how can you take that time? And devoted to relationship exercise at the same time, so you'd be to combined some of these things to become more highly. It's true, but I need to make this confession that gene. She would never say this, but she won in highschool ABC wide. World of sports. Arm Wrestling Competition in the one hundred ten pound class. Well, we've got the trophy. You talk about working together. I've got this little bit of fear that she's to. Defeat me. Well. Here's a great example of the importance of female in the family is that you become not just your own healthcare quarterback? You actually become the family's healthcare quarterback. Because what makes mama happy makes everyone happy when. She's GonNa Body. Saying yes, there will be penalty to pay. And, so for the MOMS, listening and the sisters listening the impact that you can have on the men in your life in each of these areas, not in a nagging. Cruel way. But you have ways of motivating. Your kids and your those. Sit ups. Abundance yesterday was. Sampled that I just suffered through for a bike ride. Because I know our son would prefer bike ride over a hawk and I just didn't know. You're gonNA flat my tire before we left to. Be that right. We've got to wrap this. Barbara. Say you want to go make a walk with me or do you WanNa sleep on the couch? Walking, baby. I rarely say no to those invitations I would like to add. Oh, you're great about, thank you. This has been so good and we're GONNA. Come back like I, said next time talking about mental health issues, the other tires of your analogy, but your book over fifty again it applies to everybody and I think as a thirty forty something you WanNa have your eye on what fifty sixty seventy is gonNA. Look like but set yourself up to succeed in this area. We talk about devotional time and spending time reading the word, those are all right and good, but spending time on your health and the Temple of the holy. Spirit as you've identified is really critical, so thank you for this and we'll come back next time and hit the issue again. Okay, looking forward to.

Those games roles can have our recaps from the round two of the tree league which it we know definitely had a big game feel got us kind of got the blood flow and the juices flowing in st league last week with servite. Saint john bosco. Had that big game. Feel gotta write up on max preps he had some big exposure. That felt like a big big game in and delivered. And we're gonna recapped that Bosco game we're also going to have a special report by scotty on freshmen. That are already make an impact in the train lead. It's a special type of season for these freshmen is that they're not your typical freshman. They're playing a little bit earlier than normal. They've been on high school campuses for six months. They've been lifting. They've gotten to know the offices. These guys are making an impact more so than ever because you know. The strange pandemic season delayed all the way to the spring so lot to cover tonight. It's exciting show. And i hope everyone is enjoying football. We waited a long time for it to get back. Didn't look like it was going to get back. It's back and it's starting to really deliver and this is going to be another big step this week as we you know. Get into You know the third round of the tree league skype. Let's start with that big game last week. I really want to get your impressions on this game. Saint john bosco at home takes Takes down servite thirty eight twenty eight tale of two halves pretty remarkable surveys up seven three at halftime and both teams obviously playing great defense. You know seven. Three ballgame survives pressuring bosco. They're blade blocked field goal. They're swarming to the ball. They're playing with a lot of confidence especially on defense. Bosko's playing great defense to check out these numbers. No feta excellent junior quarterback for servite. He's one for eight in the first half for six yards unbelievable. He's been played putting a huge numbers and he got it going eventually. In the second. Half and then t mac zero catches in the first half another junior on t mac mcmillan other outstanding junior But that was bosco. Really pressuring him pressing amount. I should say on on the edges and did good a great job but then know bosco takes control the second half they score on four or five possessions in the second half jabari bates runs wallo for one hundred. Seventy seven yards this guy. Matteo hoogly outstanding catches to touchdown passes the tight end sophomore five for saint john bosco catches two touchdowns in the second. Half including a key fourth down touchdown on fourth down conversion and then And then and then bosko gets enough stops to hold off. You know survive. No on t. Mac did get going in the second half put up some big numbers there but just couldn't sustain that momentum. They had in the first half but pretty interesting game pierce car. I also think Pierce clarkson is probably emerging as the number one guy. Think he's starting to step up a little separation with keeton houser. They're still rotating quite a bit. But i'm starting to see you know. I think pierced might be kind of emerging as the guy. I like both those quarterbacks. They're they're both kind of different. But pierce clarkson. Elusiveness is kind of a game changer. The he can run in compliment. That running game get out of trouble. Whenever that is can extends some drives through a couple of pretty nice touchdowns as well so and in in cadence got a great arm. But it's in. But i i kind of think that pierce clarkson could be emerging jalen woods with the big game as well Look at outside linebacker for the braves. But scotty what was your take on this game during hollis following dino scores at friday you know we kept seeing that score seven three survey in many going to seven three and a half. I mean couldn't believe it. You know then. See noah was in a one of a not back no catches bosco with no touchdowns and erecting game. That was bottled up. I mean whatever alternate universe that was yes you know ended up changing back because bosco made those second half adjustments you know scoring those thirty five points and opened up the game. You know for surveys sake are. They did all they could do. They played another greek game. You know but in the end with the bosco size and depth that wore in on the friars the second half you know despite t back getting back on track for that i have Defense with linebacker. Eight neck and wiler. And jacob and defense alignment mason graham. I mean they were just out quickey the bigger survey off its allied. Were getting out the. Qb's they were not letting running backs get loose in a know for bosco sake. I saw a couple of drops couple overthrows. At if we're caught bosco could have easily been up twenty one seven You know and then it was former fryer debates. You know who the game you know. I think rushing for i believe it was like one hundred. Seventy of as one seventy four in the second half he had been he got those two big clutch catches from a tail l. catches were undefendable Y- running up at tight end One was sort of like a semi rural wral. And then he drags the defender into the end zone when he flexed out catches the fate. Going up it just. It can't be defended unless you're you know somebody of his size Battling back you know but they turn the ball over while playing. Catch up in that second half in you know. They can't treat scores. You know and then. I wonder how much kion burnett was missed of especially when it presented mismatches. But then how healthy what. He had been You know it was kind of like a carbon copy of like last year's game you with except for last year there was a couple of missed extra points You know this was. The survivor was by ten. But for the most part i think was as advertised. Everybody got a great game and You know like we keep saying you know you know depth in in in moscow. Speed always ends up being there needed. If you can't trade blow for blow but nonetheless you know i gotta give it up to both teams because they both played great when they needed to. They both made the adjustments sister. That one ended up coming on top and before we go to players the game. I want to ask your opinion about this scotty. I've seen As far as the sophomore class going on in southern california specifically orange county a little bit here. But we'll keep it so cal. I've seen Milwaukee i'm sorry I've seen malachi nelson a quarterback. I don't know why. I get his name on but it's Malachi get it right one of these days malachi nelson the quarterback software at la salle meadows. And i've seen mci name mci lemon also at los alamos play find athlete and i think now is going to be outstanding. He really moves wells. Got a great arm and mci can just flat out motoring a super athletic. I've seen him do some amazing things already as a coroner and receiver But you know what i you know. I think there's this matteo is so big at six five to sixty. And i'm seeing him doing very athletic things like catch passes and he's out jumping And you know he's got a good guy on mill avenue on that one fourth down conversion san diego state commit all over like you said undefendable. I'm seeing matteo jump up and grab a a a little out. Pass from coal fulton at santa margarita taken into the house. Just jumping out of nowhere to grab that ball. No problem to the house He's running after the catch on the The second second. Half on that the first touchdown he's accord against servite. That guy's got. I think he's the number one sophomore in the state I mean and i see he is going to be just such a force with him at that size in what he's doing i think he's just another physicality level then I think the nelson lemmon. What's your take on that scotty. Point that you you know that you bring that up. Because i had wondered about this is no knock on The guys at low sow. But i keep seeing how you know the numbers that they keep putting up the you know the big plays they keep making you know. And that's that's the You know the knock warrant near the discussion. You know if they did it in the trinity league arm. Would they be putting up those numbers. Because you're playing against the best you know. I know you know it's been a lot of talk. Is that you know you know. There's been so much talent debt you know at these trinity league schools that did not everybody gets on the field. So then that's why these kids go. You know they ended up. Just go play public school. You'll still year good enough. You'll get your scholarship in in their right mind. That's right you know. They're just talented. I think those two guys in the trinity league and they would still put up. You know you know great highlights but you know when you get your you're talking you know matteo boos at six five to sixty You just don't see that you know. And he does a both sides of the ball. He could be equally as good as tied in and defense. And that's the other thing is that you know. Where do you rank amac. You know so you may be right. you know. He made he could possibly buy beat when they rank that he'd be number one And he could probably do that. Both sides though i think right now i think he's more valuable or more talented on the offense aside because of his match-ups i've seen them you know so far. He's made good place on defense but he hasn't been as dominating defensively he has offense. I mean he's been contained at times. There are times where he'll make a good movies made. Everybody seems to always make a sack. Where the big tackle win needed you know. And and i would. That's the difference a big players rise up to the big. You know big big times. And that's what he's doing. Because right now i mean you have to catch it. But they were too big catches and those are kind of game changers. Same on defense. He's always seems to have two big plays on each side of the ball and both of them. You know like. I said were you know ended up. Having changed the outcome or played a big part in the outcome of the game. And you know that's what people remember you know so. He said he'll get better. You know you know he's a sophomore. You know as far as like it'll not always maybe not as dominated as as he is on the offense aside on the inside but you're you're right as far as you know possibly could be the number one guy in that class going into next year. We'll see. I think. I mean both those guys Lemon malachi nelson. They're really good too and they're gonna give a lot of good competition that's it's not a slam dunk. But that's i've seen all those guys in person. I've seen nelson and lemon both in person twice and i've seen Matteo in person to twice as well and mateos the pick for me right now All all different guys. So you can always debate A bunch of different ways but pretty interesting great and sophomores. I'll tell you that that's that's no doubt about it sky. Let's move on to another game from last week to recap here. Modern day forty nine. Orange lutheran seven so Previously you know looking at this box score This is the game that you were at. I was surprised. Orange lutheran actually scored. I saw credit to the lancers. Getting a first quarter touchdown and then you know modern day. Score seven straight touchdowns. Hobbit elijah brown the freshman quarterback at modern day. You know In his second game as the second is as as a i. You know freshman starter four touchdowns in. Oh now it's after two games elijah. Complain about seventy seven percent of his passes he's got seven touchdowns against one interceptions the Running back duo is pretty much urging for modern day gets and really brown. They're looking pretty dynamic and joson maura stepping up right now as a Excuse me zamora for mater dei stepping up. He's a tied for the team lead with a catches with i believe it. Cj williams so. I don't know for how many people saw joe sigh of really stepping up as an outstanding season. So far And i think he was pretty good against orange lutheran He had five catches for sixty one yards. Also caught a touchdown. Cj williams six catches for seventy three yards two touchdowns including a thirty one yard touchdown so some interesting stuff going on offensively and defensively obviously monitored as defense continued to play outstanding a linebacker a milwaukee tayo is emerging from a talented Group of linebackers. He's tied for. I think he's got the team. Lead after two games with six total tackles so a right there of course with regime davis and company but And then josh hunter. Safety is already got two picks. In his many games he had one more orange lutheran and then for the lancers. You know it was tough going running the ball. They actually finished with nine yards. Total yards rushing. So that was tough. logan gonzalez nine for twenty one two picks for about one hundred yards some change so for the year logan's about complain about fifty percent Obviously is average going to dip After this modern day game. But i still think the junior is You know he's still making some progress in. I'm pretty high. And logan gonzales interest to see how he bounces back from that game and one guy who's looking really good for orange lutheran who's off to a fast start jacob hernandez he's playing outstanding and Five five eleven. Two hundred ten pound. I think he's a junior and he had nine total tackles against modern day and he's emerging as as a definitely a guy to watch so it was you know orange lutheran. Hey they got on the board score a touchdown early but then it was all modern day. What was your take being over there. At at the game scottie at stanford stadium. Yeah so that score forty nine hundred seven on the surface was a blowout and i know people just look at scores. That's counts you know they'd seen largest tosses for east seventy six percent in nineteen of twenty five one ninety four. He did have a one pick yet. Another efficient passing game veto with cj williams as you mentioned within six catches and his two. Tv's you know the monarchs believe it or not they weren't able to dominate the running game as one most expected I you know. I know you had mentioned you know that you know the the rushing yardage but you've got a credit a loop defense. They did play much better last week. with their run defense you know no modern day did rush for two hundred eleven yards as a team. That's deceiving ray. Leak had sixty six and yet seventy three. They combined for one thirty nine on twenty two carries but both of them combined had negative seventeen yards rushing. You know there was more than a few runs. That were stopped for loss. Pain or little games. You know for any other team that probably be a decent solid numbers but knowing what these bags can do. You know what's surprising you know whether it was dow knife for the align or a resurgent on ola defense. You know front. Seventy two linebackers gave moran hits tackles for loss in an interception you had already mentioned jacob hernandez had lead with nine tackles for loss and their defensive back bryce brown johnson's he had eight tackles and they made. Md work for those yards. They should multiple looks. They didn't sit back. They attacked Modernity they stopped short yardage situations Believe it or not you know including two thousand insurance. But for all alluded to slow down the monarch orphans. The allude defense amino lou offense had their hands full with the modern day. Starting defense you know answers to one hundred one yards. One yard rushing yards passing. You know the. I was starting to you know. Logan had a tough night like you said. we've you mentioned his stats and eluded. Hold a seven zero lead for a little bit. After modern a muffed the punt then gonzalo is connected on a twenty eight yard screen class than two plays later. They hit jalen inch for a thirty yard. Td on a nice route lynch lined up on the outside and Dana black man Lined up inside and they picked the modern defender lynch got inside his defender. The the timing was precise in Kansallis hit the for the for the score. But that was the only offense abided the night and gets on his face relentless pressure Which included an opening sacked by owen carey and perhaps the highlight of the year with josh soggy. Oh who actually declared gives. All his from the frontside he actually created a fumble was returned by score by regime davis but it was called back blocking the back already. I sent you that picture. So you can have a visual of what i'm talking about. I don't know if you you saw that. Try the post that out there for everybody. It's it's i mean when you see a bit cleaner i when you see a fast. It's it's it was pretty intense. I get got off. But i didn't think he was going to get up from that And then the events had two interceptions like josh hunter and shoes brinkley For the most part wholly defense played better than they did against survey of marty was never really challenged by on defense by the lou off. And you who did pass for two hundred sixteen yard tunnel producer last week. But i'm sure all that's going to change this week. Yes and i think. Jacob and i look in here now that jacob garcia some sorry sorry jacob hernandez that orange lutheran linebacker that is really emerging jacob hernandez he is a senior according to max preps so my apologies for jacob. Scottie whose your player of the game in this one and we'll then we'll go back a circle back to servite bosco in. Oh i i i quote. I win your brown Because they seem to like decide to make They wanted to force. I guess the modern day to pass and he kinda like he didn't want anything deep but he like. I said he was efficient. Healing made the couple mistakes but he had ito he. He did what he needed to do. And then ray. John davis at the four tackles two from rcn a one pass deflections and you almost had another interception. And then he had that fumble recovery and he's just been all over the phelan he he does things you know. I think he was actually the monarch river. What they call the player of the of the week is player of the game last week and he only had two tackles and because he does things that take away the you know one side of the field or it has you know. He all of his assignments or And so that's kind of like you know he's just been a rubber ball so execution site elite done. That's kind of expected but But he was all over the place. And so i kind of quoted with them to and did you have jabbar. Batesville lasts surveys bosco game. Okay great all right last game recap and that would be santa margarita. Taken on jay. Sarah this was hey this. The eagles have snapped their losing streak in the league in a big way forty to nothing overseeing over ajay sarah and that snapped eagles. Eleven game losing streak in the train league so they are not going to be over this year and they smashed through that barrier forty to nothing. How about a career. Night for colts. In the senior quarterback the lefty throws for four hundred and three yards four touchdowns they got their. They're receiving duo is set. And look and great and murphy and buckley those guys you know. They put they produced against bosco. They produce the next week against jay. Sarah sophomore believe is ben. A durham Defensive back for santa margarita. Had a team. High ten total tackles. How another sack for. Train derek wilkins. He's got three sacks in his last two tree games guys look like he's going to be a first team all trinity league player and beyond the course of cal comment j. sarah second game in the tree league. Second game without a touchdown without a touchdown they got a field goal against modern day the previous week but they get shut out in this game and they been outscored ninety four to three obviously very tough games. You're gonna play the juggernaut in modern day number one and orange county. Maybe the you have the measure tree league favourite. You have him nationally then. You're a play against a vastly improved. Santa margarita team. That's coming off a strong off season. And just you know. Pushed bosco big time in the first half and show that they're legit and they got a dynamic duo of receivers senior quarterback big defensive line trying to break a streak. It's been tough for the lions. But i would of course love to know what you thought of this game scottie. Re cotinine are. It's it's offensive resurgence And it's deep insult j. Sarah eighty five yards tour offense. Thirteen yards passing But santa margarita. Had to work a little bit to get some of those score st- or you can say jay sarah loud the eagles those opportunities you know fulton said he did throw for the foreign of three yards four touchdowns but he only completed fifty four percent in through forty two times with two picks so what you don't see how the eagles scored now. They scored on big plays and get this. So ed converting multiple third and fourth in wrongs so jason seem to challenge the eagles offense early on in for the first score the eagles needed to convert a third and wrong and a fourth and five before they got a four yard. Run from Hussein us antonello. J. sarah's offense did pick up their first first down on their first drive but they give back to the eagles you know. They drove down to thirty. Who again needed to convert back to back fourth and fifteen first on a roll appreciating titans spiel then on the next fourth and fifteen. Full knits remember the murphy on a twenty four twenty five yard pulse lag as he makes a bobbling catch. Spins breaking breaking attack will go up in the end zone. Santa margarita fifteen zero just like that but you know more on the eagles extra points in that and i will get to that at the end of this. Because it's very interesting what they do with their extra points As well j. service plane on those first two drives they just couldn't stop the eagles on third and fourth down or the big place because the next ego possession fulton hits. Buckley ford an eighty yard bomb The ball of becky was going to be picked off by by the state but it just dropped right over the safeties hands into buckley's and then he showed a speed breaking away from three four adjacent offenders. Eagles up twenty one zero two point conversion failed down twenty one. You could see that jason was started press. They can have abandoned their run. They went with three straight pass. Plays resulted in back-to-back sacks by. Boris hines in that the marine to that offensive series. Sarah's actually was having success running the ball better than they did against modern day. They up like five or seven yard gains. But when you're playing from behind. You have to throw jay. Sarah finish with seventy two yards. Rushing led by zach pruis fifty nine but the tone of the game was set early on. You know you know they continue. Didn't the second half. San margherita can dirt convert another third in wrong and resulted in a twenty five yard gain and then a play later. Ten yard murphy. Twenty seven zero. Santa margarita at the half then on the opening drive at a second half. Santa margarita runs a fake punt a fourth in twenty seven and gets forty five yard game but on that. Dr j. sir. Finally stopped santa margarita from converting on fourth downs. But then they gave the ball right back and in fully hits murphy. For fifty five yard gain touchdown. Thirty five zero you know and You know the closest jason got to score was right before the half. But ben durham you had mentioned earlier. I'm we played a grip game and came on a corner blitz and shutdown that scoring threat in the those. Finish the night with three sacks wilkins the other they add multiple pressures they held. Jason did hold on the eagles. The forty two yards rushing eagles. Kinda struggle all three point two per average Despite fullness of four hundred three yards wasn't all that sharp as mentioned with fifty four percent. He was only seven of sixteen in that second half but he connected when you on the big passes when they needed you know and then j. Sarah this no serve with was without both of their starting. Quarterbacks jordan washington and ray valencia. Who revolt streak hold on the sideline. So you know like. I said i eight santa margarita without a dot as talented. You know they have the skill and they can take about time You know jay sarah's just you know it's it's gonna be tough with them but you know hopefully they just keep on walking out and you know and then they get better but You know that was a tough one for them. Play the game scott. Did you go with mr four zero three Fulton with both. Luckily and miller murphy. Who okay cod book. you know. They caught some balls at crucial times on murphy kinda lot of fourth down in third down morals and main if he drops they turn the ball over but i mean he and then they both this baltimore display speed and athleticism. So that's that's the key. I you know so. Excellent well now as we wrap up round two of the tree. Let's look at the standings going into round three so right at the top of the league. Of course you got those familiar to teams both to one. Oh saint john bosco modern day. Then you got that middle. Pack that we've been talking about saying these guys look like a good match up. They're not gonna play for a while. But servite santa margarita both one and one and then with the the next two at the bottom of the league that we kinda thought this could be interesting. How these guys pair up as well. Orange lutheran j. sarah both. Oh and two so you got a kind of a clear divide. There seems to be some levels to this game as they liked to say right. Bosco modern day to no middle packs survived santa margarita. One one orange lutheran j. sarah both oh and to all this going in to round three.

I never completely stop teaching but you can slow it down and mitigate the effect. Episode I believe I'm a big believer in that. There's so many things that are available now to us and I'm a big believer in Better Living Through science Better Living Through science home. So it's a safe to say that you can check on a lot of meditation. Well actually have a morning ritual that I go through and involves doing some sort of exercising. I usually three or four days of some sort of aerobics and three days of resistance training like you do. I do meditate every day. I also Journal you get the meditation and also kind of write notes to people that are important in my life.

I had to make a decision whether I was going to be a grandfather of my kid's life are open to be attacked his father.

Spartan Race who is the star in training? Okay the sporting training and actually I think yesterday I found out that because of all the juice all those with the Polish it going on.

Basically, there's a month three mile of eight mile and a 13 mile race and each room has obstacles. The three-mile has a 19 to 20 obstacles. They have to get through and if you don't get through the obstacle the penalty is 30 burpees there now. Yeah, if you guys are neighbor people lately, no, I have not never never never poked, you know how to do for I do not it's it's been a while since I've been in the Jim Morris. It's been a while. Yeah. I I was I was going to be fine, but yep. I kind of I kind of got that feeling when you the table quite a bit though. No, no which need the table the dinner table. Oh a couple of times every night when I'm no stranger to the gym. Yeah, yeah, I tell you play sports of some of the young men and we were their family friends and the way he got on and the guy he's really like no cross country Runner all this shit a guy on and I go like, holy shit John you got baby Fat Shack.

It wasn't a shoulders up the shirt and so forth is is like you basically you get down on your hands with your feet. You can't your feedback you like and you a push off. And then you bring you okay. So I do know what happy is I think the fiber right now right now do what am I I I would do one but I did that. I have an injury that I'm nursing back from work.

I just haven't been to a gym recently where they got the guy pictured yet a milk carton of gender what this guy's dog. Doing push-ups and I'm laying with my wife and a place of that. That's like they only call you I get in life. You know. Hey dude cardio once a week is not good. I am currently closed to what's a month and maybe you should you should School him in on your secrets of erectile dysfunction satisfaction. I'll give you three things that you can do immediately. Well, not that I can do our listeners what you're not a relationship. Oh, I'm in a situation ship. I think I need it. You'll meet you need it. I don't think I need it my brother. We only disinformation not that nothing information information is always good to have I don't need anything to treat these dysfunctions in this satisfaction. No, I want to talk about that was about some about just about the quality of relationship. Okay? Anybody I'm fine that department. Yes. They're like, yeah, so so so those of you that want to be discreet and wage is to talk about in public like like these two children are my my site which is called. My junk does not work off. I have interviews with expert doctors about 5 medical therapies to treat erectile dysfunction. And this is nothing these are all things that requires a doctor office or is a fda-cleared device these the doctors that treat this well, They don't take insurance. And so we usually a consultation winning doctors will cost you anywhere from two hundred or three hundred dollars So currently if our leaders are getting it from Pablo on the corner is definitely illegal and probably talcum powder and that's why it doesn't work, you know other than affected that you could write out. So basically I interviewed these doctors or health care professional and I'm talking about 45 minutes to an hour on each of these are going to robot detail. So but let me talk about three ways to improve the quality relationship number one. This is the thing that guys don't like to do communicate. Like not that I'm hungry or I want a beer or where do you want to go but communicate about what's important to you and ask what's important to them wage? And you may be surprised that they're ready to have that conversation. I will tell you that that has all sorts of buttons at all. Yeah, so that's number one number two, but this is very old school. Where you guys at? Well, we're in Florida at the moment, but we're both originated from New York. So you escaped from New York number two is when you are getting ready to go in the car somewhere. Open the car door for your significant. So civilly is not dead. You gotta prove it. You gotta do it by accident and it's going to confuse them especially if you haven't done it in like fifteen years it will it will be appreciated by little confused people like, you know, a friend of mine who actually did that and went over to the driver's side and his wife thought that she wanted her to drive wage. That's that's probably what my wife would think also the other things. I hold other doors and stuff. But how long will you be ready to like go maybe like you go, you know going on a date night or something like that. You're going somewhere open the car door. We're just open the car door at Just in general here could say like oh I'm mr. Perfect. You know, my my mom told me I was perfect and I think when I was seven, but then there was a whole bunch of damage. That wasn't after that number three $9.99. We'll get you a lot of consideration. I think we know what I mean the consideration you go to the supermarket. And once a month I put a little reminder. I don't have to do any more. But I have a reminder in my Outlook calendar that pops out a little notifications and my boss put dozen roses. It's 999 at the supermarket take a whole get away with you only have my database once me and the way the way to the last longer than flour. The last one I do is you come at an angle the water you put a shot of lock in there a little bit of sugar and water and mix that all up along with the power and and the flowers actually last longer want the sugar and water Franco like the sugar a little shot. And if they last longer I will tell you that you do that on a Thursday morning, you know that they'll be a sap like every other, you know, losers, you know spending $50 on Valentine's Day for $10 worth of ship off. The flowers has been marked up like four times like oh yes that day is that one day is not going to make up for being an asshole all the 364 days of us a week. So if you do those three things You will significantly improve the quality of your life. I'm going to say so from from my experience. I'm a married man and my wife does not like frozen wage because they died so she mad at me she could spend for me to borrow. He's telling you he's telling you the secret to have him last longer. No, not right. No, I'm going to put the shop and put the shot. I I will be interesting to you start buying roses once a lot cuz you you order them from a florist and like Fifty sixty seventy bucks for those are roses, you know, then you can't feel like okay, would you buy and they die off and everything else, you know a lot of money, but you did 999 You know, that's that's two that's two coffees at Starbucks. If you don't get anything else, I feel like with a frappuccino blah blah blah blah blah coffee at Starbucks. But 999 I have I have another question for you. I just you know meditation you say yeah does everything that you're doing now does your diet change the way you eat or you more aware of of stuff that you eat stuff to stop eating? I wish I could say I was really good about that. I'm not but I did not I try not to be lower carbohydrates. I do sometimes even more afraid and I want to but I try not to eat bread and only only chocolate candy, you know once maybe once every two months off get chocolate long. John, but that's not something I have every day. I try to stay away from that drive safe or sugar in a sugar. I rarely use sugar on any page. So I'm a carnivore. I mean, I I love a college a week and and you know, I like like that might cocktails. I'm not as good as I should be in that realm. I've also been pretty lucky in terms of my gene pool, but I just kind of like I said don't want things over the years for the last two decades took off seconds to mitigate some of the things that occur the current genetically my family. I read you did a little comedy before I did a little bit in a little girl is a little bit I did I took a stand-up comedy class. The part of that class is to just to do it on stage performance and then I did three stand-up comedy performances Palm Beach and I'll tell you there's a lot hard thing you think? Oh, yeah I go up there and talk for five minutes, but go ahead and try it my bugger off. That's why you see Tiger Woods waved. Also go. Oh, yeah, I can swing it like that. Yeah. No, I bet I bet I I wanted to be a wrestler when I was younger and I did a couple of in these shows and it's harder than everybody thinks to be in front of the South big audience. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah, cuz you're you're out there and you're exposed especially gets 15 seconds of your life. You got all the girls and even start with you've signed your head. Now one of your secrets the testosterone optimization, I thought that secret wage up to like that. I'm pretty much admitted it on the South Shore point three years. I did not a lot of research because when I started there was no such thing as Google search you are Sir George. Anyway, correct. Those are our general surgery. Yeah, but I wouldn't know about that so that but I have some close friends who was in that space and he introduced me to him and that's how I kind of got into the whole anti-aging. And the whole testosterone and then over time, I've learned a lot more about it and make that plug full guy talks to me. That's my podcast. There's several doctors off a bunch of soster. Oh, I also talked. I talked to one one researcher about what lab numbers mean because there's there's a misconception actually posted off this morning. And you know, when you when you look at the averages on these these forms that you get on the reports the lab reports off the averages are not people that are optimized healthy. The hours are of people so there's a more so than not a good portion of them are going to be unhealthy. So so it's kind of like well, what's the average body mass? Index in the United States is I don't know what it is. But you definitely do not want to be please don't take off your goals wage loss control. Your testosterone buddy is it's just if it's just a million people, you know, would you though just elaborate former listeners? Cuz I know a lot of our listeners are going to think. Oh testosterone that does that mean he's on steroids. Well, I mean testosterone that that is one but I mean the sensor was actually naturally normal. That's that's in your body and you are decreasing down the that production as as you go and then in some people say like a 1% a year after the age of forty is highly variable and people but the whole thing about testosterone is very interesting is that generational and talk about the normal levels. It was considered normal generational levels of testosterone levels in men have that going down for decades for Generations. So a a sixty-five-year-old man today has about 15% maybe a little bit more or a little bit less testosterone than than a man of similar age twenty years ago. Okay. And and so and so you're seeing this this whole thing a lot of it has to do with things that are there are maybe a fireman but thoughts of things are going on. So for men are suffering from lower and lower testosterone levels. Yeah, there's a whole of things that occur when people do their job doing the inability to retain muscle mass you get you also tend to get a little hesitant about things you tend to get a little crack in the Press sexual function can be affected all sorts of things that are all sorts of things that occurred in that whole venue. This this is actually been born out in several years. Thing called the mail north of aging study of that one. Basically, it's just really shows that like the 87 to 2005 of significant declines in male testosterone level. It's like a small group essentially a fairly large city, but the other thing that's happening is we are being challenged and both men and women, but I'm not I talked to us about men. There are so many things going on in the environment that are affecting males off their sasasa levels, and they're basically their ability to reproduce that really got a scary. There is a study out of Hebrew University that they looked over thousands of studies and took about five or six years actually like this study cuz they looked at so many things and between 1973 and 2011 3rd counts in males in the industrialized World dead. Have dropped by 50% Wow. Yeah, and it's not just the account but also to circumvent the quality has also diminished and Dave extrapolated data, and they said that the the the decline is continuing it's not like showing a leveling off or whatever, you know, there's no curve flattening of this. So basically it's just be there'll be a point in this time when there's nobody able to produce a child most people that's exactly they're saying they're saying by 2050 most males in the the industrialized world will be infertile. And and that's what thirty years from now and it was happening is that usually you're scaring about this and I've interviewed a gynecologist thought it was Annika Becca just talked about her fertility practice. She said the percentage of where you know is it used to be X percent was women and experts it was mailed the percentage of males not being able to be followed being infertile is growing up significantly in our practice. So it's not the the female but the male is actually becoming more and more Factor. So these are things that are correct in our environment that are really kind of a lot of people know about there's actually even a private Equity groups that are now investing in sperm banks. This is off. So it's kind of a it's a it's an interesting phenomenon. And so, you know, if you got people investors invest because if they're they're looking at that as being a very valuable commodity in the future. Yeah, so their birth Blinking to sell sperm pretty soon within the next fifty years basically, right? Yeah. Wow, that's there's a movie in there under the stars. I'm going to I'm going to start selling mine. So 599 started right now. Everybody else goes. Yeah. Don't call me to bail you out through the mail. So you can do the same thing. I do have some listeners that are in the older range. Is there anything that you can offer any type of advice that you can give them to keep their life in track or get their life back on track? I think a lot of is attitudinal. And I make it back. I would actually really look into the saucer optimization. I think most men should look at it very seriously. There's a lot of clinics out there right now that are the probably not in some ways that may not be the best. It's hard to find a good doctor in this area cuz there's a lot of Clinic because it's such a cash business now, I'm not really a very lucrative to get into this with the final you find one that flashes sit down and talk with you and and those our stuff is a is a challenge you say I think a lot of it is also just to keep active home now before before you tell the old guys what what they have to do. I do have some young Sportsman that are going to wonder if it's legal for them to take the testosterone optimization and still compete in their line of sports. Well, first of all, I'm not I'm not going to give be given legal advice wage. Like an opposition and so I'm not going to be giving a lot of devices on that regard but I think you know, I suspect that most often, you know depends on the on the sport. I mean, I know that the certain Sports if you're basically you get test that you get suspended or bruised it out. So you got to be really careful with what you take you gotta be careful with what people give a you because they're saving me saying they're giving you something in there give me something else so they gonna be real careful with that but you know, it's just a way to mitigate some of the aging process wage. So stop cheating don't think about it. So, you know, the other thing I would caution especially younger people is that it will be it will shut down your sperm production. So so if you plan on having babies, you need to get with the doctor where they'll keep it going on that if you age Taking testosterone since 2005 and you got five kids. You might want to get a home DNA test on the kids off. All right, so so back to them getting their confidence back and living their lives. Yeah. Yeah. I and number eleven attacks being active being communicative and don't just become a couch potato April, you know do something get out there do something social and physical birth. You know, you know, I think it's a there's a big part of it. And the other thing is that we've had I had the benefit because I was an older parent. We were actually a lot of times we end up hanging with people that were ten fifteen twenty years younger than we were all so that was that was actually a benefit cuz I'd me about 55 you can imagine somebody can have a visual you can have a kid at age twenty-five. So Horus Cafe, I mean, he looks like I'm proud of you know, cuz I'm a power lift home and I was pretty looks like he gets done in the gym, you know, and so we saw his gun he was still in his guns did for a minute. Yeah, so I was so so I am so so I I like it because it's kind of fun because I like going in there and I like lifting heavy wage. And so I I I have an injury which is kind of kept me out for a while but recovered from it and I was actually getting back on it getting back to where I was but I would I would live two hundred hundred ten pound dumbbells eventual. You pulled a groin muscle from all that sex, huh? Bicep tendon tear in fucking yoga in yoga in yoga or doing drugs. And that was the one of those were reached. And and so before I was just like, you know, and so don't do yoga do if you'll you'll get to Hot Yoga will do it slowly do yoga for for stuff people. So so that's all that's all the good stuff. So that's all the good stuff. You got four. Are there any money down for solar this? Well, of course important find a good doctor. I mean the the help you guys you sort of thing doesn't have to be this is not a toy. It's not to be dead. Taken lightly you always gotta you gotta find a good dog group that that can take you through this and understand what's going on and and there's a high variability of what's effective at that, you know off at certain points of some people do very well certain levels of other people really need to have a lot more and it's it's it's very it's highly variable and prior to offer a lot of the good doctors will treat you to your symptoms versus treating each and a sore specific lab values. There are so many things available to you to maintain the quality of your life. Most of the time and this is why I hate about some people. I not that I hate them. I just need this about them. They are off a school's you know, what assholes are tell us. What I asked whole is someone who takes in a bunch of information and they're they're always that that person that the end of a lecture they're raising their hand numbers regularly Google Chrome or whatever and they just like they just they just like to hear themselves talk. They taking a bunch of Information Age and then at the end of the day They don't take any action. They don't do anything with that information. And and it's a total. It's total waste of time. I've had friends that have asked me about this and I thought I loved we were said I said, you know your ass hole because this is the third time you've asked about this and I've told you And you don't do anything. So why would I bother going to my email and sending you the information again, when you when you when you when you don't do anything with information? I said it's a waste of an email if it's always an email to waste my time, which is really precious and You'd be much better off consuming less information. And and taking action on it and little bits and pieces and consuming a whole bunch of information. And this is true. I mean, I'm not saying that if I have done that we've all done this, you know, I got something off the books from seminars I've taken you know, you know took it felt great and do anything with it. So we all we all do that. I've tried Focus now and I'm taking being able to take off all actionable steps. Lots of little baby steps will read will lead to Big results and but most of the time people just like they get they then you're trying to so many things that way they just get overwhelmed. They quit say it's like the only ones Got a New Year's Eve resolution and Nobody Does it. Health clubs full for you know, it's empty Mr. So so, I love it because people people just overcome it. If you just do little things every day every week just do one little thing to incorporate, you know, just like the three things and I say, well, you know, why not incorporate one of them a month. You want to give us those that listed here three things real quick. Sure. Oh, he said he said communicate. He said communicate open the door open the car door open up on the page and and by him and cut him up and do it and the nice thing and you know, but if you don't want one of those behaviors a month, you just walk into a habit and and you're way ahead if you try to you know, probably if you try to operate signals don't work. No, I think you're overcompensating for something. My wife doesn't suck my flowers on a Wednesday morning and the the cashier looks at me. She goes. Oh, you must be a lot of trouble provided with my red roses on Wednesday morning at 7:00 a.m. I go so, you know that just probably the biggest thing that don't be in such a hurry and pack. Lasting changes and take action take action. I don't know how many men I've talked to about testosterone. You know, like they'll I would say maybe one in ten takes action the ones that have a yard like I'm going to add they're they're going to fire them. I'm going to add a 4th to your your three make memories. Oh, yeah. Well, that's what life's all about home. Great memories. Yeah. Absolutely. I have a question. I have a question from them. The beginning you started, you know, learning all this information and you know, put it into work. How long did it take you to realize that it was working for you off or it was just a matter of months. No matter what. Yeah, and quite frankly, I would say a matter of months, but I don't really remember that far back but I needed to change which was it was it was pretty substantive pretty quickly. And so it just happens and and then once it once you get once you get going and kind of becomes addictive, but you know, I won't say I haven't had relapsed wage, you know, how can a little bit higher than I want to be right now, but I'm working on it. So it's it's never a straight line and my body type I lean towards. That's why that's my default position is is that that's so if I'm not careful that that's right. So as I said to say you still have babies at home. I know I always will yeah. Well as you know, the the six pack abs a lot of that it's a lot of that is genetic there's them Well that that I can work out all they can be done by person that most of their whatever was like most of my listeners got a keg anyway. Yeah, as opposed to a six pack they got a keg. Yeah, but so my listeners already. They took the first step by listening to them listening to you. What they need to do is get off their asses and get on to the next steps, which is going to the old guy talks to me. Com. That is correct. One one last plug here. We we talked a lot about this astral on my side. There's two interviews that I did one with a with a doctor and he said and they were wage and the hell with a job and my name is Scott Hall and we really go into the week on answering a lot of questions.

A U.S. Marine Looks Back at Fallujah

"From foreign policy. I'm Sarah Wildman and this is first person this week. Fifteen years after Palooza soldier looks back at the battle the define the Iraq war. It's been sixteen years since the United States went into Iraq nearly nine years since president. Barack Obama formerly ended. Us combat missions there and yet the impact of the decision to fight is still being felt today in the early years of the Iraq War. One battle particularly stands out for ferocity from early November through mid December two thousand four US Iraqi and British forces moved into the city of volusia fighting operation. Phantom fury a joined effort to fight the insurgency afford trained well led and ready the operation deliberate the people who've lose it and begin the reconstruction of the city and the restoration mobilized more than eighty. American soldiers died in that operation. The heavier weapons fire a barrel of the insurgents. They caught it. Suppressive Fire and marine has been injured and his colleagues need to administer first aid and get him out earlier that year. Four American contractors were killed in Florida. Their bodies were burned and dragged through the streets. Everyone who comes to Faluji he warned will meet this fate. Phantom Schori was an effort to retake the city from a safer rooftop. We filmed tank moving along the street. Ready to fire a round into each house where they might still be resistance. Elliot Ackerman is a marine veteran. Deserve five towards up Ghanistan the Rock and was awarded the Silver Star the Bronze Star for valor and the Purple Heart. He led a battalion of soldiers for that month of two thousand four in his new book. Pleases Names on war. Revolution and returning Ackerman describes what it was like to be involved in that critical battle and how it felt to return years later not as a soldier but as a journalist. He's our guest this week. Elliot so they actually want to start at what feels to me the heart of the book. Which is Florida two thousand four and I wonder if you can take us back to November tenth and begin their well. On November tenth. I was serving as a marine rifle platoon. Commander in Volusia on the assault of the city hadn't yet begun begun for us on that day. And I think that is kind of in some respects the center of the book because that was one of the earliest and most intense combat experiences that I had had a lot of what else occurs in. The book is kind of orbiting around that central. Experience lead you join the military? To begin with. I joined for a variety of reasons. I grew up overseas grew up in the UK. And I think kind of always being a little bit of an outsider to America. Made me want to give something back and kind of perhaps give me a different perspective on what it means to be an American. I was someone who when I graduated from college. I wanted the job that I had whether I was good at my job or bad at that job to really matter onto feel like I was going to have an impact and have real responsibility in the corps offered me that on finally like I was the kid who never stopped playing with his Gi. Joes I guess. I always had an innate fascination in the military and I think the confluence of probably all three of those things. What led me into the Marine Corps and I joined a before nine eleven did ROTC and college to become an officer in the nine eleven. While I was at school and so the Marine Corps than you know went from being kind of a you know more abstract thing in terms of what I would be doing when I served to something. That was much more tangible as there was a war. Going on there's a an Los Angeles Times story that you reference in the book the Unapologetic Warrior and in it the manual Afri- Doug back he says. Young Marines didn't enlist to get money to go to college. They joined the Marines to be a part of a legacy. That was true for you absolutely. I mean the Marine Corps has a very strong organizational culture. And I listen. I think everyone I know who joined the Marines. They join for a variety of reasons. But one thing you do opt into when you join this culture and part of that culture is a legacy so you know when we were going to fight and flew jar. Remember three days before the battle. The Math Marine Expeditionary Force. Sergeant major who is basically the senior enlisted? Marine Nov Iraq came and talked to all of the assault battalions. And you know one of the things he told us was like what you are going to go do is just like what the Marines did it. Bellawood in the first World War Guadalcanal and he will Jima and the Second World War at the Chosin Reservoir and Korea and Waste City and Vietnam. This battle is going to become part of the Marine Corps legacy that's only one component of what that data net and what that experience but an organizational perspective. Certainly I think it's became part of the the legacy and obviously the battle history of the Marine Corps. Curate that Your Company. Commander told you two weeks into the battle that you're both the luckiest unluckiest to be going into that battle. So soon into your service. Why was that? I think it kind of gets at the duality of these experiences. I kind of call them in the book the it but for me that it was combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. So I think what my company commander you know who when he said those words to me was all thirty two years old and seemed infinitely old and wise because I was all twenty five What he meant was that you know right out of the gate were. When I came into the Marine Corps my first experience was was participating in this battle and that nothing I ever did would live up to that and that was why I was lucky in that by Keith P. perceive in some ways it was true with the rest of my time in the organization would be a let down compared to this but I was lucky because I got to participate in that and I think those words proved true and the duality behind. Those words also proved true in that experience. One that I'm you know I'm very proud of but at the same time you know there's a lot of regret. I lost a lot of friends influenza and wanting bring us back again to November tenth which is also the birthday of the Marines. And wait explain what it feels like to be going into that kind of battle Well yes so talking about the culture. November tenth is the Marine Corps Birthday. So as they say November tenth. Seventeen seventy five. That's when my Marine Corps came alive. You know you remember these and One of the ceremonies marines do anywhere they are whether they're at the Pentagon at the barracks at eighth and I in Washington. Dc wearing their dress uniforms or whether or not there and deployed halfway around the world going to battle. Is You You read the comments message. But the current comments message and the General Jonny Lee Jun. Who was the first comment to celebrate the birthday? And you eat a piece of birthday cake and so we were sitting there November tenth. Two thousand four all loaded up In about a dozen with a call. Amtrak's which these armored personnel carriers early early in the morning. Really almost the middle of the night getting ready to go right into Fujita and Were we were handing out these little bits of birthday cake. And our company's executive officer came up on the radio and read the comments birthday message to all of us so it had sort of this. You know surreal quality. Are you afraid in those moments as you know? You're going into battle. Sure absolutely everybody's afraid. And what's the fear exactly fear fear manifesting sort of I think interesting and different ways forever? I think the largest is just the fear of the unknown For me I was always afraid in the moments before I would have to go do something and then when I was actually committed to the acted self identity. Feel afraid but you know it's the fear of what you imagine can happen to. You is the fear of leading down in the people. You're with who you care about deeply It's just that broader. Just fear of the unknown. Did you know why you're going in? What was the mission? The mission was to flu. There'd been a battle that spring in late March and April of two thousand and four in which You know you may or may not remember. It began when a number of blackwater contractors were killed and their bodies hung from the bridge influenza. An led to a sort of a board battle With the Marines in which the Marines pulled out of the city and Faluji itself became a no-go area for coalition forces. And what really wanted to happening was between that March November It became a real safe haven for members of kite on Iraq and people like Zarqa. We were operating out of flu. And so it became this sort of seeping wound In whatever the counterinsurgency effort was in Lombard province in western Iraq at that time so we always knew that we were going to have to go in and retake Falluja the whole time I was in Iraq we knew that I arrived in the country in June of two thousand four and I left in February. Two thousand five and so We also knew that we would probably go do it in November of that year because the presidential election was in the fall and we imagined that the election would happen and then then regardless of who won the next day we would wind up going and clearing out flu which is what came to pass So you know. Our mission was to go in there to retake the city establish nominal Iraqi control over the city in order to deny it as a safe haven to the insurgents who are operating out of there so that was sort of the the Moore wrote tactical mission in other reason. If you ask why people are fighting there you know. I think it goes to kind of what you said before. It's being part of this legacy it's doing right by the Marines who become your friends by your your comrades. I mean that's what I think. Inspires people to go the extra distance in those situations. But you knew going. In at the casualty count could be enormous. Yes and how does it feel carrying that knowledge walking in? I think that the number you gave him the book was that you are expected. Potentially to lose seventy percent in fact the number was higher. There is a moment before we went in. When my same company commander my platoon had been tasked within our company which is three platoons about forty marines. Each our platoon was tasked as with all the main effort. So we were going to be the lead platoon going in. And you know if you've studied kind of urban combat and tactics the casualty breaks for the lead platoon usually very very high. And I remember my company commander just quietly pulling me aside and pulling a friend of mine. Decide who is the commander of the platoons in saying? Hey you two need to just have talked through the plan for how Elliot how your platoon is going to get back filled. Because I don't expect you guys to be combat effective by the end of the first day combat effective basically means. Don't expect enough of the lieutenant to be left that you'll be a you know a healthy fighting organization anymore see us so that's pretty sobering But on at the same time I mean you know it's not like I woke up one day and found myself as Marine infantry officer. You know I was seventeen years old when I decided I wanted to go into the marines. I worked very hard my senior year of high school to get in on an ROTC scholarship. I then spent five years in university working for a bachelor's degree master's degree all the while knowing I was going into the Marines and then when I became a lieutenant trained for a year before ever showing up to the infantry so you know about seven years of my life. I've been preparing for this and so in the moment arrives. They look at you and say you know you might need to get back filled. You know you you've known that there's a chance at this might be where your career is heading and so I think you just feel ready for it and have to accept. It's one thing to feel ready for it in anticipation but it's another thing to watch men fall in front of you where your comrades and you tell a story about how. What rainy nights remind you of a moment on Highway Tan with Gunnery Sergeant Ryan? Shane and Sergeant Lonny Wells. What happened? Well lonny wells Was a squad leader in a friend of mine's company and you know most marines. Who fought him food? You can tell you where they were. When they crossed highway. Ten highway ten was a six lane highway. The bisected the city and wound up being kind of the main line of resistance so lonny wells went across highway. Ten in as they were crossing He was machine gun in the street shot through his moral artery and was bleeding to death in the middle of the road. Ryan Shane at the time. Was that you know real strapping. I mean you know six foot two two hundred ten pound Marine Gunnery Sergeant. Who'd enlisted the age of seventeen whole life? He wanted to be marine Solani shot and he then ran out into the middle of the road to get Lonnie Grabbed him pull them in once? Pull them twice. And then the same machine gunshot Ryan through the Stomach Ryan fell down the road In there was a very iconic set of photographs taken on sequence of Ryan running out into the road to lawn and About two years later I was in camp. Lejeune and Ryan. Shane was awarded a Bronze Star for valor. So metal for trying to get Lonnie that day and that day it was raining. Those the first day it had rained influenza and our whole deployment before that we had had a bet about when it would finally rain racks at Hunter of rain. Once the whole summer we'd been there And so in Ryan is getting his award. He said two things you know that really stuck with me. The first was he some finding it really hard An old by tobacco by this point Ryan had to get he was being medically retired from the Marine Corps He wasn't able to serve anymore. Which was pretty heartbreaking for him mandate time. He's getting this award. You know he'd lost a lot of weight and had a number of surgeries to correct. I mean been shot through the stomach so he stood there when he was getting his awarding. Said you know I'm finding it really hard To accept the fact that my greatest achievement in the Marine Corps which is receiving the sprint star for valor comes out of what? I perceived to be my greatest failure which I wasn't actually able to get Lonnie out of the street that day And lonny wells wound bleeding to death the other thing that he said. I said you know I'm looking out and who's going to be award in front of me Marines. Who'd been there? He said you know a lot of people. Ask me about that day. But something one's really asked me about. Was you know who went and got me? You know at that point lonny wells and Ryan. She had been shot in the middle of the road and wound up. Happening was to younger. Marines have run out into that same street and pulled them both to safety. You know so. There's also when we talk about the stories that could told and war and valor. You know. There's a lot of stuff that is overlooked and Ryan made that point as well. You also lost the weapons artillery officer who controlled air strikes and artillery for your company. And He'd been playing chess with him not long before he was killed. Yep so that was a friend of mine. Dan Malcolm and we were lieutenants together and he was the guy who would call in artillery and Wanted Happiness on the first day of the battle Our platoon had wound up pretty far forwards and artillery started landing all around us And it was actually friendly artillery. We didn't know what we didn't know where it was coming from and There was a high in the highest building around us in Dan. My company commander had been up on that building earlier in the morning but the the volume of fire that was coming on that building and so bad they'd had to get off this rooftop and later on as these artillery impacts are hitting around our platoon. I mean so close. It's like a steal wave Hitting a beach break in. I started yelling at Dan. Like who's shooting at? Us and Dan ran up to the rooftops to try to figure out where the artillery rounds were coming from and he was able to call those artillery rounds off of us and then as he was running down off the roof a sniper shot him and the impact right under his armpit went through his heart killed them almost instantly. You carry a story like that. How do you go on after that? You know you you recognize. I think that you know we all knew we were signing up for You now I think about the things that people did for me and you try to live a life with meaning that honors the people who who dedicate a comeback and and have the longevity that you've had Guys like Dan and Lonny Wells and Ryan Shane. I mean you remember them and Doug Zan Beck I mean all these guys. You just remember them. I think that's the best thing if you do after a few years as an you moved over to special operations and you actually weren't commanded marines anymore but foreign soldiers and there's a story you tell about a fateful decision made in that context to you know most of my career. I actually I worked in special operations and worked as an advisor to foreign troops along with maybe a handful of Americans who are also advisors. I in so That context on my war buddies. You know weren't other Americans. They were by large Afghans Who I fought alongside and you know. We did all of the things that people do in wartime fought alongside one another blood alongside another and I think that's Pacific story is Two OF THE PLATOON COMMANDERS. In a unit. I advised named Mortaza and severe Were we were returning one day from mission. We were in southeastern Afghanistan and severe lived all the way up in the Northeast on the pike the famous Puncture Valley and he would hardly ever get home to see his family and he had a chance one night to get on an early helicopter flight out and so he basically wound up taking a shortcut To get him home and because we took that shortcut we wound up hitting an I. E. D. in which One of his best friends was killed. He had a child already. By then you. I did and so That firefight in that incident was one of the first ones. I had been in As a father I think when you have I've always felt I never really understood war until I had a child because I think you can't understand the scope of loss. People can experience in war. And Tell You yourself have a child and can imagine losing that child and how there's nothing in the world that can ever make that loss whole. Did it make you WANNA walk away from more at that point any poorly? I think it put it in more of a context. You know the one thing that I you know that am a father that I look back on. I really look back on kind of with all is I think about my time in the Marines and I think about my friends in the Marines I served with the Afghans and others I served with and I think about the guys. I knew who at the time I knew this had families and kids and were going out on night raids or fighting and footage doing it as parents now as a parent myself. It boggles my mind that they were able to do that. And I understand now that they were functioning with a level of emotional complexity that frankly. I just wasn't having to deal with you. Know as a twenty four year old lieutenant or as twenty nine year. Old Captain And it really gives me a kind of a sense of all about what they were able to do but it is it part of the reason why you end up not redeploying. I think it is. I think it gave me a sense that it was time. Can't life has it? Seasons in this season was passing and there were other things I needed to attend to like my family and at the same time. You don't ever really leave the war in some respects. You're constantly kind of returning. What is that propulsion? I think you know I. I left the military started working as writer and started traveling to southern Turkey where I want up. You know covering a variety of subjects to include the civil war in Syria the Islamic state's spread onto our rock and politics in Turkey as I was writing about these subjects. Kind of what kept coming back to me was the American experience in these parts of the world and how they were also intertwined into everything that was going on. And so you know. It's not so much that I keep coming back to them as much as like it's not over you know what would starter there for us. At least in two thousand one. Two thousand three is still not over so I wanted to write about that and just try to show the connections between Faluji in two thousand four and the Islamic state in two thousand fifteen in the same city and how there is a narrative arc connects these things both But politically you know. But also there's an emotional arc in the wars. Have an emotional topography to them. And I very much wanted to map that emotional topography and show the contours of what it feels like to to go to war. You see that emotional topography on both sides at various points in the book I do. I believe it exists on both sides in I believe in these wars for me in the Americans. I know her of my generation of thought of them. They were generation defining and in the book. I sit down with a former member al-Qaeda and Iraq who fought on Lombard provinces places. I fought and I talked to him he would. He tells me you know the war's regeneration redefining to him you know. And then I sit across from a Syrian activist of who participated in the protests. In Two thousand eleven. Two Thousand Twelve and he says it tells me the same thing that the conflict in that those protests in the conflict that led from those protests were defining to him and the fact that we've all been defined by these conflicts in the region. I see as something that connects us. emotionally connects us and is a point from which we can begin to understand one another even as radically different as we may be. Syrian activist American Marine and a former member of al Qaeda and Iraq. You know I'm an optimist. I believe that with everything I I've seen. I believe that people have more in common than they have different and to acknowledge. Those commonalities is a way to have deeper understanding and more empathy for one another. Do you feel like you have greater moral clarity on the American role in Iraq. At this point I think you can look at the war politically and then you can look at the war personally and for me. There's always been you know two separate things you know. I know I joined the military on the neck and sometimes people ask me like you know. Do you regret the fact that you serve based on political developments on the ground based on fact of Islam estates swept back into parts of bar province And I don't regret it because the nature of my service. The reason I was there wasn't necessarily to implement a specific policy in my mind. The reason was that I was there was that I again. I want to have a job or whether I was good at my job. Outta my job mattered. I can look back at decisions. I made that I feel proud because because I was there and we were able to make this decision in our platoon wound up getting through a pretty tough situation in in a better state guys and they get hurt so for me when I think about that. Those aren't really political issues as much if he asked about the politics of the Iraq War. The politics were terrible and we never should have invaded. Iraq in it was a mistake. I think that's been proven out by. I think inflating the two is for me. Doesn't feel like a true way to talk about the wars you recommended and received a Silver Star for your actions in Operation Phantom Fury in in the book and I don't want to give too much away for you but the very end of the book you narrate the commendation in a way that I found deeply moving. What led you to narrate it in that way well originally actually the That chapter wasn't in the book. I turned the book into my editor and he was pleased with. It said they're very happy to publish the book looking forward to it and then he gave me a phone call and said listen. Elliott you know I just feel like I would be remiss if I didn't bring this up with you. Know people will read your bio and they'll know about this award and you don't talk about it at all in the book and you probably have your reasons for doing that but I feel like again. I would be remiss if I didn't say I think it'd be a better book if you figure out a way to talk about him and I took that on board and I knew that I had this summary of action to serve an extended description of the events that led to that award and I felt that the best way to do that would be to annotate that summary of action With a lot of my personal reflections and the things that don't get into or included in official awards documents you. That's what I wound up doing. But you know wards are complex. GonNa quit Ryan. Shane said you not the greatest honor. I'm getting his also Brad. My greatest failure. Which is he didn't get lawn. The out of the street that day you know when they hand out those awards. It's usually because you found yourself in a really bad situation when everything goes perfectly according to plan. They don't wind up handing out those awards. So you're often being honored for in. Some respects is sort of the worst day of your life. Why are you go back to Philadelphia as a journalist? What brought you back. I mean not to sound Glib but in some respects because you know like like Mallory said of Everett's because it was there you know I wanted to go back I've been thinking I'm thinking about that city every day for twelve years at that point so when the opportunity presented itself I was living in Istanbul. The time and a good friend of mine was the New York Times Istanbul slash Baghdad bureau chief when he basically invited me to come into flu and you know he would help me. Get down there I really I jumped at. The opportunity had been looming so large my imagination since I left. Did you feel you had greater clarity on your experience thereby returning? I didn't feel as though it was some type of catharsis per se. You know I mean I think we all know the image of you know. The veteran returned to the old battlefield. Whether it's the guys who served in Vietnam walking through the rice paddies or the you know the World War. Two veterans walking across the beaches It wasn't that type of an experience because of the war there is an over so for me returning to Volusia was sort of like seeing an update as to where things stood and what struck me. The most was how how little things had changed. You mentioned in the book that you try to imagine fluid differently when you return not as a battlefield right but as a community of homes and businesses and Volusia is not defined by creation but by destruction when I return to fluid I mentioned as I mentioned so little had changed standing there and looking at the city. You know when you go to other cities let's say old cities like I Dunno Rome or an Istanbul. You know you have sometimes these layered cities where you can see how one group of people have built on what another belt would another belt and it's how you wonder what kind of these this layering in certain cities and those cities. I think we're kind of oftentimes defined by that layer in these very old cities When I was back influenza it was almost like viewing that process in reverse is you would walk around the city. You would see destruction on you talk about you know that building. That building was destroyed in two thousand fourteen by ISIS. This building was destroyed in two thousand five. By the Marines. You know as the city that was defined by the layers of destruction that had come there And that jumped out at me You know hopefully flu jewel rebuild this at this moment that was perceived it. It's an interesting juxtaposition between a moment in the middle of a quarrier and Berlin with a former colleague. Conrad and he points out that a hill in the city is actually not a hill at all man-made and it's covering up it's almost archaeological dig of all the destruction the tanks armored the bodies that were left at the end of World War Two but Berlin is now this breathing living modern peaceful city and villages still a battleground in a different way. Yeah I mean it's it's food is a work in progress like I. I hope in like twenty years. You know and it's the city of Moscow. Those mosques will be standing like beautifully restored and you know and it will be a vibrant city and I can take my children there and you know. Walk Around and point to places with them. I think like most veterans. I know they dream of being able to do that. In Iraq or Afghanistan is just. That's not where either country is at this moment. You know. They're still active wars going there. Which is one of the things I think. They kind of have made these war surreal. Is that you know the equivalent passage of time. Let's say I'd fought in waste city so way city. Nineteen sixty eight. It's two thousand. Nineteen fifteen years so you know it would be nineteen eighty three right now. You know Vietnam was very very different place in nineteen eighty three obviously than it was in nineteen sixty eight in that passage of time whereas you know Iraq is a different place but the war is still percolating. There and were were not. There's not an in game. It's still a work in progress. What do you think the legacy of flu is for us now? I think the legacy is to be determined. I don't know what is you. Don't think enough time has passed you. Do you feel you've let it go this point or is it still of you? It's always a part of me. You know sometimes people ask me Elliott in like. How did the war change you? And I've never known how to answer that question because the war made me. I mean I you know I have a good friend who I go running within the morning. And he's you know he still works in special operation has been deployed in the war zones. More than than anybody. I know He's going in and out since two thousand three and so at one point we were running and we were just talking about the war and then that idea how to change us how it made us and he looked at me at one point he said you know Elliot said the melancholy of it all is that we grew up there and I feel that way I grew up there so asking me how the war changed me. It's like asking someone. How did your parents change you? Your parents don't change you. They make you thank you so much for joining us today. Thanks for having me Elliott. Akron is marine veteran and author of the book places in names on war revolution and returning first prisons produced by me Sir.

JEFF LEBOWE: MAGIC MUSHROOMS & MICRO-DOSING: EP. 96

"Basically the findings have been that In in pretty much every case so whether they're looking at so assigns effectiveness in treating depression or whether they're looking at it for treating addiction. I it's been significantly. More effective than current current treats by as much as two times in the case of depression. So if you look at sri drugs which are currently the most widely used drug to treat depression. Their effectiveness rate is between twenty and forty percents But the preliminary studies that have been done so as ivan and i i want to stress preliminary because there have no there have not been any clinical trials the have concluded yet but there are multiple better vase three. So they're getting close up but yeah the the For depression it's It was found to have an effectiveness rate of close to eighty percent. Are you curious about discovering ways of making your life. Better than. Welcome to my podcast. I'm bob nick. Mun and this is the exploding human. Listen in while. I talk with all kinds of people in the fields of personal growth. Health and healing alternative therapies psychology spirituality environment. And the future. I'm looking for those answers that make life better for everyone. You'll meet cutting edge practitioners. Doctors artists filmmakers business people and those who have overcome challenges. The brave curious anyone who is out there helping us humans to explore expand and explode. Hey welcome to the exploding human. I'm bob nick mun and my guest today is jeff lebow from spores lab. And we're going to be talking about mushrooms. Magic mushrooms gourmet mushrooms silla simon and the benefits of microdosing. So stay tuned for that i. I'd like to invite you to visit my website. The exploding human dot com over there you can listen to all the episodes read synopsys episodes see photos of my guests little bio on myself and there is a donate button. If you'd like to support the show that will also give you access to some extra content. There's also a youtube channel which you can subscribe to to listen to. The episodes is the exploding human with bob. Nickmamed with bob mcmahon and you can also listen on the facebook page the exploding human so Plenty of ways to listen to the show. As i said my guest today is jeff lebow. Jeff is one of the partners in a new company called spores lab located in canada at spores lab dot. I show you wanna go check them out. They are all about helping people to learn how to grow mushrooms. They sell mushroom spores and cultures and grow kits. they also consult very extensively. If you have any questions give them a call and we got into some interesting Things that i didn't know about mushroom some of the health benefits in treating depression addiction anxiety trauma some physical issues that you may have. And then we talked a little bit about the hallucinogenic experience and jeff is a font of knowledge in this This arena which i knew very little about and now i know a lot more of that. I've talked to him so please listen in. This is jeff. Lebow great to be here bob. Yeah and you're all the way in canada so Our neighbor to the north. And we're in you are Are you the entire spores lab or is it a whole group of people or a small group of people. I'm one of five partners in the business and then we also have two full time employees. We started about a year ago. Now it was august of twenty twenty And it's grown pretty quickly since then so it started off with me and two other partners And then we've brought in an additional two partners now have to employees as well. We're trying to be really really above board with fours lab on and keep everything on the legal side So we don't sell any dried mushrooms. We don't sell any finish mushroom products. We only sell mushroom. Genetics and growing supplies growing medium's growing equipment and that is legal because there is no suicide in In mushroom spore so those are the the actual compounds that are illegal under the canadian controlled drugs and substances act in be. un psychotropic substances act and Not sure what's called in the states. I don't know either. I i've been out of the the world of that kind of stuff for a long time ago. I am very interested in in You know what is transpiring. In the micro dose of peace thing. And i've watched like i was telling you before the The podcast that. I've watched several Videos on on the stuff. And so. I'm interested in that and i did go to your website and i did see a lot of the equipment. It seems very Scientific clinical and clean. I don't know what the words are. You guys have thought it out it's it's I enjoyed you know looking at all the equipment and it seems like you know it's not easy It's probably well. it's not simple. It's probably easy if you're diligent but there's a lot of pieces to growing something for for the use of well let's let's talk about. What are the uses. The types of mushroom That that you're dealing with and the uses yeah for sure so. We sell all sorts of mushroom species. Actually we have a thirty eight different mushrooms. Abc's on our website and now the majority of those are in the salosa be genus. So the magic magic mushrooms abayev we. We're we're trying to it. This this kind of goes back staying on the legal side of things. We're trying to be at my company that sells some suicide and stuff And then just have a phone number all over the internet. We have our address all over the internet. So i'm we are trying to be totally above board on the legal side of things But yeah as for as for growing there are it definitely is a bit of a process on but what we're trying to do is make it easier awesome for people. So we have a ton of information on our website about different growing mediums about different growing tech search techniques Different growing methods all sorts of stop. So we're not just selling a source ringe in the equipment but we're also selling or not selling actually giving away the information the knowledge on how to grow our most of these grown indoors is that how how it's direct most often And there is one species in the salosa genus. That is much more prevalent than any other ones And that is called solo to be cubans so pretty much any mushroom that you're going to find or be able to buy and consume is going to be a slow c-cuban this because i wondered like i was telling you before that i had done some Mushroom experimentation gosh forty years ago longtime ago had a great time doing it. I don't do any drugs or alcohol for a really long time. Almost thirty six years They haven't done anything. Because i had a tendency to do way too much but the interesting that you think you said to me. Is that some of these microdosing. And we're talking about doses. That absolutely do absolutely nothing to get you. High in the conventional sense have properties of helping with addiction. How does that work. It's addiction depression. Ptsd anxiety and then they're starting to research coming out about neuro degenerative disorders so alzheimer's dementia other things in that sort of space. So that's that's sector sector But yeah basically the theory behind a micro does is that. You're taking about one. Tenth of a hallucinogenic dose. So you feel no acute affects. You don't feel any differences in your perception Hallucinate it all but you do get the the proven neurological benefits suicide in on some of those. Some of those benefits are the stimulation of a few different neurotransmitters The incitement of hyper connected brain state. Dampening of network in the brain called the default mode network and that network is associated with a lot of conditions like anxiety depression. Ptsd and addictions well. So in my opinion It you know. The research obviously isn't at the science on this isn't decided yet. But i think that it's the dampening effect on the default mode network of the grain. Bet it causes a microsd or a macro does to be so effective while. I know that there's a number of Universities that are doing studies in this stuff for quite some time and stanford yale john hopkins university of toronto. Berkeley university of british columbia would be some of the larger names but The others is probably thirty. Plus accredited Prestigious universities that are seriously looking at this. What are some of the findings. What you're talking about that. There's really a big improvement in people's lives for. I'm really interested in the two the two major things. I'm interested in our addiction. How a drug can help you with addiction issues and also trauma. I think that's probably the biggest thing that affects the most people On the planet in whatever form it takes because everyone's got some of that in some to a huge degrees lesser. they basically the findings have been that In in pretty much every case so whether they're looking at Assigns effectiveness in treating depression. Or whether they're looking at it for treating addiction It's been significantly more effective than current current treats by as much as two times in the case of depression. So if you look at sri drugs which are currently the most widely used drugs to treat depression. Their effectiveness rate is between twenty and forty percents But the preliminary studies that have been done. So as i've and i want to stress preliminary because there have there have not been any clinical trials that have concluded yet but there are multiple veterans as three are getting close up but yeah the the for depression it's It was found to have an effectiveness rate of close to eighty percent. Wow there's so many variables though when you're when you're taking something that's comes outta the ground as opposed something manufactured in a lab. I'm not advocating for either one. I'm just saying that you know there's the strain the quality the dosage the person's metabolism somebody buys a grow kit and all the equipment from you. Guys they grow it. How do they know. What a micro dose is. where do they. How do you figure that out for you know. Each person's is going to be a little different. I would assume sure in the case of studies. Most of it is done with. Synthetic silla sivan mushroom. Because you're totally directed. There is a lot of variance in mike policy. In general on my is is defined as the study of mushrooms. And this is. This is the same for all mushroom species but you know basically every single mushroom culture has its own genetic code In not since there are more similar to humans than their plants. So you know if you were to grow up you're to buy grow get from us and rowett the comeback six months later in by the exact same strain broke it and grow it again. There would be slight differences in be active compounds that are contained in there so basically that's what all the licenses that have been given out to research suicide been. There are two so far in canada To companies that currently growing solicitation mushrooms and trying to formulate a consistent product that could be used to be prescribed basically when you said something about synthetic silla. And i'm i'm a little bit wondering how different that is from something. That's being grown in the ground. What is seems like there'd be a missing piece to it of of Energy of something that you can't maybe even quantify your exactly. It's a great analogy to cannabis A few years ago when when or cannabis was legalized Everyone was only talking about. Thc and now there is cbd g. Now there's i think it's over a hundred other Can avenue have been found. You know have been started to be researched The same priscilla's have been mushrooms. I believe that they're all there isn't entourage effect That will give you a different experience taking your actual mushroom versus synthetic cells. Sivan because there are up to thirty five compounds thirty-five psychotropic alkaloids that have been found in suicide. Mushrooms and suicide been is only one of those. What are there other mushrooms that. You're selling to grow Others i guess we have a few different species. we kind of separated into gourmet active us on the gourmet side of things. We've outlines means we've got. We've got a few different pieces of oyster mushrooms Shitaki we've got wind gap cinnamon gap and then on the acted side of the vast majority of what we offer is solicited benzes. And that's just because it's the easiest one to grow indoors on but we do have some of the other strains coming up soon like celebrity scientists celebrity as a panelist scientists. All these mushrooms are in the same genus And i don't know how much you know about biology. Basically it's it's classed as genus and species than variety so the celo salosa genus would be you know. The the highest order and the species would split into For example cubans as Sign essence and then the next level below that would be strain so If you're online you probably heard people talking about different mushrooms strains on. Maybe you've heard of one called penis envy did now that title the the the cubans Abc's the only one that's really been rhone enough for people to differentiate their own strains of it but Yes it's by far the most common that you'll find this is some sort of soliciting cubans. Okay it's in. The gourmet side is food. It's it's like. What do you recommend for a salad kind of mushrooms. But those have healing effects to from. From what i've the little bit i've read. I know you know you're talking to somebody that knows very little about this. But i'm very interested at the same time okay. Well if i'm gonna if asked if you don't understand any of the terminology. I'm using feel free to stop me and naloxone. No i understand everything. You're saying i just don't you know it's this is all i remember Genus and all those words from biology class a million years ago. Did you guys. Were you guys like biology type people and went to college or you just figure this shit out on your own gets One of our partners has a background in microbiology myself. I am just icicle educated but have quite a bit of hands on experience with michael. Yeah that sounds great. I mean it's It's it's really like It's kind of an underground thing. That's starting to sprout and become above ground for the world to to us. And i think there's probably a correct me if i'm wrong A feeling that you want to help. That's the feeling i get when i went to your website. Like these. these folks believe in this they wanna get the information out there they also wanna make an okay living doing it but it's also you know it's important. It's if i feel that you guys think it's important to get it out there especially when you think about big pharma and how much it's decimated You know the culture and gotten people hooked on a lot of cramp definitely We we really are trying to send her our website around the knowledge And you know also sell products by but have that knowledge in Yeah it'd be first and foremost so. I'm really glad that that came through when you're looking at the website yet did. It was happy to see that in a couple of talks that i watched on youtube from Some other people kind of brought that to the to the forefront to. I really felt like the people in this world which i know you know just finding out about actually care a lot about Making something available that has been around way before pharmaceutical companies and will continue to be around but has become this There's a lot. Well there's a lot of fear around this stuff because it isn't it funny. How stuff that grows in the ground is feared but the stuff made in a lab is like somehow quote. Better the whole modality of the current. The pharmaceutical space. They're they're trying to treat stuff they're not trying to cure editions whereas with with suicide been Lot of these studies coming out one. The one specific that i'm going to reference Was from john hopkins university But it found that. I believe it was in the high sixties percentage of people who had a a suicide. An experience and this study was looking at treating. Depression had long term relief from their symptoms for with one dose and this was a hallucinogenic level. Dose rack yeah. That was a high dose and it was also administered under the guidance of ist. So that actually is another important note Most of these studies that are showing really high effectiveness rates. It's not just a you take take years. I've been in your automatically heal dramatically healed. It's you take the suicide and during the experience you work through your drama with With a therapist so it it heighten consciousness to where the insights become clear and long lasting. And that's the part. I find really fascinating like why when you come down are used. Have a long lasting effect you. You're able to remember it on a level that isn't Probably in the mind. It's somewhere else. I think mr standards all standards who you mentioned earlier as a great analogy for that And so so. Heart of the effective suicide been as a function of dampening activity in the default mode network It it can serve to kind of erase some of your habits so the analogy that mr stats uses Is a sled track in the winter. And every time you go down that sled track the groups get deeper and deeper and deeper What suicide desert. What s psychedelic. Experience does is provides a fresh blanket of snow. And then next time you slide down that hill. You're not stuck into your rut. You can go wherever you want. That's wow it's pretty fascinating i think. In the case of microdosing there are some quantifiable effects. One would be the stimulation of the process of neurogenesis so the creation of new brain cells And another one would be the dampening of the default mode network That's been observed under Epa mariah imaging And been been shown to be happening while you were on suicide. And even at small dosage took so new brain cells like give me an example of how that would work in. let's say depression or any sort of issue. It causes you to to generate new brain cells in certain areas yak erect. It stimulates the production of neurotransmitter. Brain derived niro trophic factor And when you have elevated levels of brain drive new. Traffic factor in in the brain The process of neurogenesis is nope. No one told me that until just now it's literally making you smarter when you take magic mushrooms or actually. That's not totally accurate. It's giving you the capacity to be smarter. Have you seen and we're going to go with anecdotal evidence here. We don't need to do science here for a second. Some situations where people's lives have improved. And can you give me an example. Because i love what i would call a case study of just one person or two people just die came to me. He was suicidal. He did this much Microdosing and now. He's the you know swinging from trees. He's smiling he's happy. There's quite a few stories like that out there I've we've received quite a few reviews from from many customers Stating that you know. Even actually from one customer specific Who is in alberta's one province over from us actually felt that just the act of growing the mushrooms not even consuming them at helped her anxiety. But the i think The this story about Someone coming to psychedelics and having a psychedelic experience and and having it be really transformative in meaningful Is is pretty widespread. Yeah i mean. I experienced myself. I think there was some permanent Knowledge that kinda came to me a certain way of seeing the world. That was new. Evently fee i. I didn't like walk around feeling like i did while i was tripping but After that you know there definitely confirmed some Some ideas that. I thought were possible and i went. Oh yeah that makes sense now. I don't think You in a broad sense. It definitely makes you more questioning. I think a lot of people could be well served by being a little bit more questioning. I've been questioning person for a very long time And sometimes the answers. I get me upset like are we really this foolish as a species is usually what i come to. I'm i'm either. I choose to try to laugh about it and not be too upset because i don't think i can do much except my own little corner but this is part of it. You know is to educate people on possibilities. They can open up their Their minds to poss- possibly finding solutions. That are less toxic for sure And if you were. let's say somebody's listening to this this podcast and they've suffered with addiction or depression or anxiety all very common things particularly anxiety. Almost everyone feels anxious. Fast paced chaotic world. these days. and what would you recommend in terms of Let's say they go to the website and they get this stuff and really interested and they grow it. And then you know. They've let's say they've never done a hallucinogenic level dose or or at all and they've never done microdosing. What would you have any thoughts about like what you would say. I guess everyone's a little different but it will be slightly different for everyone. But i would recommend starting off with some sort of microdosing protocol Microdosing regimen Just to kind of acclimate yourself. A little bit to the substance You are not feeling any acute effects on your microdosing and then for your first full experience I would recommend being with either a therapist or someone that you trust that that will be sober. That can kind of guide you through the experience. If need be another recommendation. I would have is listening to the playlist. That's put together by john. Hopkins university They over years of study put together a about an hour. And it's actually almost two hour long playlist Specifically noting a tempo and everything and where each song is placed in the playlist And the playlist whenever they are doing any of their stunts. What what is it like by neural beats or something like that or is it a mix it some of that It's it's actually. It's a fair amount of classical music. There is a lot to An sound and vibration. And i think that that is also what happens. When you get in a heightened state of consciousness psychedelics that you vibrate differently. Definitely yeah i. I can personally about as well. I know when i when i take mushrooms Ice feel a vibration right and the sense of wellbeing described. But yeah. I know just like calm like you said wellbeing and just kind of like describing Residents that i. It's hard to put your finger on it but It's it's an experience that i think most people could benefit from. Yeah i'd like to say that it's i can. I can sense in a much stronger way. The parts of the atmosphere that don't have objects in it like space. Between you and me you can sort of sense that it's all one thing that it's connected There there's no such thing is nothing kind of thing That's you know. That's the allure this stuff and For me on the on the collusive janik level. Now let's say somebody is doing this for depression. Is there a protocol for the length of time someone needs to. Is it forever the rest of your life or is it a two year period. That's ideal what would have would science come to that so far research. So right now. It's looking undecided hump. Basically it's there's been quite a bit of variance I would say that if you want to start microdosing or have a full experience to treat your depression nor ptsd or or diction You would want to have that that full experience under the guidance of therapist and then he'd want to continue that with the microdosing protocol to common ones are four days on three days off or once every third day. And just can continue that until you feel like you don't need it any typically that would be between three and four months Judging by most of the research that's come out okay. That's a very short time when you compare it to us our is that know. You're if you're taking us. Sri's you're going to be taking them possibly for the rest of your added. That's exactly what they tell you. You're going to be doing this. The rest of your life. Sir or ma'am so you know and if it stops working we'll find another one inch perfect. A perfect way to make a lot of money is to convince somebody that they need something the rest of their lives like not that. Yeah that just never seemed to be To be correct to me. I i but i do suppose. There are conditions where people do need that. I i don't know i'm not. I'm not a doctor. But i i i love this idea of finding ways to improve your life that you can do You don't have to go conventional if and if it doesn't work stop the nice thing about the microdosing to writers like you're you're you kinda help nothing to lose You're not gonna you're not going to hallucinate. You're not going to You know have have really any adverse effects like suicide. Sivan is completely nontoxic. There's no ellie forty You know very little reported side effects even at high dosage You know the only recorded negative side effects is is temporary uncomforter- uncomfortable. I can't remember so long ago. If i felt like nauseous or anything like that. That must have been yes. Pizza head might theory on that is Is actually that most of the time when people do get indigestion or what's commonly called gut wrought from eating magic mushrooms. It's because there's other forms of fungi growing on those mushrooms and they weren't grown in a really sterile area. They weren't dried properly if you eat fresh mushrooms that that just doesn't happen when you're microdosing. let's How do you know the amount like how do you know what how much cut off of it. And in swallow typically the average hallucinogenic dose is somewhere around two grams So the is defined as one tenth of that so based on obviously a two hundred and fifty pounds mail is going to have a different dose than one hundred ten pound female But somewhere in the one hundred to two hundred milligram range would be considered a micro dose. So you would just wait. yes There's a there's a lot of people out there selling pre way capsules so those are executed easy to find. But if you can't find any any premade capsules you could make your own capsules or you could just break off a small piece of the mushroom Way it out and there's fairly consistent potency throughout the mushroom. The cap is slightly more but it's negligible. It's like under zero point. One percent difference no no matter whether you take the capitalist so let's talk about addiction for a second because what i was saying to you before we started is that as somebody that didn't know when to stop and then couldn't until i was able to but eventually what about the quality of taking suicide would help somebody that's in a would it also helped with alcohol is when you know is or is it just drug addiction. You know other types of drugs and how does that. What does that do. How does it. Mitigate i is it mitigate cravings and does it does it deal with the The feeling you know the the feelings underneath the I'm not good enough and The you know the the spiritual malady piece of of addiction. Yes so it. It has been looked at for alcohol and other drugs Some some studies actually done in the nineteen sixties On on psychedelics intriguing alcoholism. But i believe that The reason why they're so effective in treating addiction is is again back to that default mode network. Kind of serves as a psychedelic. Experience can serve as a reset of your default mode network so it can effectively erase habits that you have And then it's also been shown to kind of just put you in a better mood overall both during the experience and for the couple of days after and then if you follow that with microdosing protocol a lot of people also report improved mood so i think it's a combination of feeling better after doing the psychedelic You know about yourself And just in general and the quantifiable effects on the default murder or are they using this stuff and treatment centers. Yes they are. Yeah there's there's at least two of that. I know of in canada And they're using using a whole variety of psychedelics. Suicide been mushrooms. They're looking at l. s. T. they're looking at ketamine and they're also looking at 'em a i don't think. Md ama so much for addiction. I think that's more or depression. slash best. Yeah there's there's been quite a few psychedelics that we're figuring out are effective in treating bunch of mental health conditions. You think canada's a little bit further along and open minded in this area. I don't know the difference between here in canada with this stuff. But it seems like every time i i've gone on the websites or the youtube to look at videos everybody's from canada talking about mushrooms. yeah i do think canada is i. Think actually leading the world in at least for Mushrooms base they've given licenses to multiple publicly traded companies to research and develop a treatment a suicide in based treatment health canada's also given about twenty exemptions to patients that are suffering from terminal illness to take i've been legally and also Started to get a framework together for For doctors to administer silla. Simon now oregon. Actually so i spoke a little bit too soon. Oregon is the one. St that may at us okay. Well let's actually criminalized. Suicide been mushrooms in period and legalized them. If you are using them under the guidance of a therapist. Yeah i saw. I read that. I was like damn. That's really fascinating. I so this goes. This goes so far back in time in history of I don't even like to use the word indigenous because everybody's sort of indigenous to where they're from but you know At or primitive. I don't like any of that stuff. Because you know. I guess more connected to the earth cultures which i guess we all were at one time but it goes back. I guess we can read about this weight from way back or yeah i think. The earliest Their earliest like concrete evidence Is is is rock art so murals and that's about six thousand years old But there's multiple theories that state or multiple hypotheses. I should say That state that. It's very possible that humans have been using Psychedelic mushrooms Since we became evolutionary distinct so since we since we became almost etienne's than i believe that's about two hundred thousand years ago. it's amazing. I wonder who the first guy was. The guy went. I'm gonna try that. Try that the i z. Two boys soaking goes oh man. I'm having a great time. Yeah going back to the whole neurogenesis thing And the creation of new brain cells. There is actually one. Hypothesis is put forward by terence mckenna. Who's pretty big into psychedelic world Bed states that are hypothesized. That psychedelic mushrooms and taking psychedelic mushrooms. Where one of the catalysts for the doubling of the human brain size his quaint a statement quite equate and then also responsible for some of the developments such as art in communication language society Pretty pretty large statement to mink But it's also the you can you can extrapolate from From having psychedelic experience and see how that would be kind of evolutionary benefit. Yeah absolutely and and looking at it as well you know. Humans have have had to eat since the beginning to survive. And so that's that is a plant that grows in its food in one sense so why not. Why wouldn't that have been integrated directly into any every culture in some at some level But the idea that certain plants are sacred as kind of an interesting idea to People experimented in realized. We need to respect this for what it for what it is and not go overboard with it to have it. Turn on us in some way you know. Let's like anything. If too many carrots skins gonna turn orange and it's it's interesting how native cultures or whatever word you want use though those cultures. I'm off the world. have similar. Names for mushrooms have have art for mushrooms. And it's all kind of connected to spirituality and In the case of a lot of cultures specifically central american cultures there they. They believe that mushrooms were given to them by the gods central american wattle language Actually the direct translation of bear word for magic mushrooms which is to cannon nap or something like that translates to flesh the gots the egyptians as well Their translation of magic mushroom in the ancient egyptian language is sons of the gods. Actually there's a few egyptologists A egypt in specific That theorized that the egyptians actually cultivated magic mushrooms. Do you have any books for somebody that is. Let's say i'm curious. I've i've never really explored this. A great book to start with that would open. Somebody's eyes to a little bit of history and a little bit of the chemistry type thing and the facts all that there. I'm sure there's some great books. Nellie yeah. I would say suicide much of the world by paul. Status is a pretty good one that covers lot of different species. It covers a little bit history and it also offers on some more modern science Status has been one of the few people that's been able to get some suicide. Been species tested So there's there's there's some really good information in that book ends damaged in general. Actually i would say that would be a really good starting point for someone that wants to learn. More is just looking to paul standards. And that's one of the youtube videos. I watched was very scholarly approach to talking about this stuff. I don't know what he's like to sit down with. And you know have a cup of coffee. But he seemed pretty scholarly. unfortunately i've never met him. I would love to. He must we listen canada right. I believe he lives Washington but he near vancouver island. I'm pretty sure he lives on an island in there could be a good day trip for you in the spores lab people to get some mushroom foraging while we're at it. Yeah i'd say a few species that are only known to grow in the pacific northwest. Oh okay so. It's like salmon the best salmon in the pacific northwest. If you've never had salmon from there we'll maybe canada's got it to think 'cause the water's clean. Wow this is really fascinating stuff. I i I'm wrestling with experimentation. I don't think going to do it but i'm heavy into meditation. I think that may maybe as far as i'm willing to risk of with the with my mind At this point a possible intermediary step would be taking lion's mane mushroom It's been shown to have some of the same. Neurological benefits been Specifically in the case of the neurogenesis kind of side of it Lion's mane has also been proven to stimulate neurogenesis and it also has a bunch of physical health benefits like cardiovascular health for example But yeah if i would say that would be a good way to kind of ease into Okay you're saying l. i. o. n. Yep ryan's mean soul l. Main like the hair lion's mane exactly l. I o n and that's completely legal to buy everywhere. Interestingly the we're we're at least in canada we're seeing the price of a pound of lion's mane mushroom Approach pound of approach the cost of a pound of magic mushrooms. So much is how how. What's a pound going for is it depends on whether you're in vancouver toronto. Okay well anywhere and cougar. I've been hearing like four four to five hundred dollars on And two straight Toronto i would say the for the magic mushrooms. Up closer two thousand. I try to stay out of that. Yeah exactly we'll. I'm wondering you know that was actually sort of what one thing i wanted to talk about. Some sort of caution in terms of big pharma. Taking over this thing. And wrecking it. Or you know. wrecking the quality making it. This commercialized the nonsense. That doesn't doesn't really serve people there they must be looking at this stuff obviously If you know they're not they're not stupid that way. I mean they're they're very aware probably of what you're doing. I have spoken with a few pharmaceutical executives We thinking about applying for one of the research and development licenses. And we're still talking about it but we haven't actually made the application yet But yeah i do think Four for the pharmaceutical industry being able to kind of take over. I think that the demographic demographic of people that would be interested in taking A suicide been mushroom. Products are generally the demographic of people that are more against pharmaceuticals. So i think they are going to have a hard time kind of stealing market share from people that would rather take treatment a rather unconventional. That's good to hear. Let's keep it mom and pop as much as we can you even if you look at the stock prices of most of the pharmaceutical giants. I think they're beginning to be on their way out. That is a nice thought. You know that whole better. Living through chemistry thing has has taken a bad turn for for the better for the populace to realize that. Maybe these people aren't doing things in your best interest and it's all about their pocketbook for the most part That's certainly a thing to be aware of. I just want to Thank you for your time.

Three Drink Minimum Podcast #14: Can we just simulate to the Super Bowl?

"All right. Welcome back. We are episode wildcard rand. Never endowed just like all the other Dame's are van. I really so I actually just touched down, and I flew I missed the whole first half. So I really didn't see how the first half went. And then I I was actually expected them to trail. So when I saw was twelve I'm like why really did adjust. So let's let's review some some tweets. Let's see a seed some of the experts were saying here so yesterday Ross Tucker who is not very bright said the better coach teams at dominated the trenches are two on the playoffs. So far expect that to continue today. Clearly meaning that because the ravens dominated last game. They would think that it would happen again today. But I don't know man, if you just watch last game, they play a lot better than people think they did they just gave up like two or three long runs. So may look a lot worse than what it really was Jason lockenfora. Also, noted not smart person said and he's like he's a ravens fans too. So I can see this. He said my totally crazy for to think that the ravens could host the colts in the AFC championship game. Come on. What are you watching? They play the the ravens if you saw the ravens schedule on who they be. You would see that? There's no way that they'd be able to just run through the ploughs like they like people thought they would and the charges are the first team to see again, which leads us to Bucky Brooks Bucky has some takes. Let's just say that. So he said this morning, BA careful assuming the charges will have an answer for the ravens offense because they've seen him previously. Whilst more also has film on how I lay defended their read option, which they honestly didn't even run. So I'm not sure I said that and they certainly have complementary plays in the book to attack the adjustments will as you saw. Aw. They did not there's nothing that can do like head coaches or like office coordinator, super stubborn. So if they think it worked last time, they're going to go into the same mindset as it's gonna work again this time. So that's what I said. That's what I mean. When those long runs probably earth ravens because they thought they'd be able to get away with it. But in the first half of blast game. The ravens average five point four yards carry and then charges win the halftime. They're able to adjust to the speed whatever it was. And then that's when they shut him down the average like I think it was three point two yards of play and their success rate was like twenty three percent. They couldn't do anything at all charges so busting those three plays that that probably hurt them. So. Here's why I was also very confident yesterday. This is really crazy yesterday. I was what Michael Peterson got married. He's charger fan on zone. Tracks on Twitter. If you have heard of him. As wedding yesterday. And I got up in front of the entire wedding party ought to walk out the door and ran smooth into some glass. It was terrible and the whole damn wedding party sought. So when I when that happened. I was like oh is not getting any worse than this charge gonna win. So as saw came out dominate, but just talking about what all we saw today. I saw people noticing like how the charge playing defense. But like they did that they did that all game last time. They they just she's me they have speed at too much fees. So they like play heavy up front. Today. It looks like they covered up like all the guards just to keep their safeties claim your fills man his life. He's so fun to watch. He liked places ask off, and he he had played. Yes. In place today that I just saw the second half where he is like fighting off three hundred ten pound guys like not just like avoiding he's like holding up strong. He's just a really good player. So but keeping guys like Jenkins are dire. James just like all the safeties at are on the field, keeping them clean, and a lot of people think like that would be the wrong way to go. But I think Gus Bradley has get like that was a good idea by him. Just because if you're not if you're not big don't try to be big with one of your worst guys just beat him to the spot by using your speed. So that was really good. So I I only saw the. So I I only saw after after I'm so special teams, man. I don't know what was going on the very first planet. I saw was does does return who should have been appropriate returner, by the way, but I saw him. And I guess I didn't know that he had earlier that was really cool. But so I saw the long the long kick return. And then I saw a misfield goal. And then the very next possession. I saw a blocked punt. And then I think the ravens also I saw Tucker missile go. So that was like one of the worst special team games. I've seen man. I don't know why they are seeking around Donnie Jones. Let me see what is average was because he's just not very good. And for some reason they are. I don't wanna hear about holding because there's no way convince me of acetates, but. He's just doesn't get the job done, man. Let me see what what did he do today? I it's probably something terrible. Like under four yards. Like always is. I'm pretty sure he takes like four five steps to punt the ball to which is bad. He act like he averaged yet five points today any average thirty five yards of pun. That is awful that is like high high schoolers can do that. If if high-schoolers can do that there has to be somebody out there that can punt the ball there fill positions getting crushed later on one of these one of these offenses like the cold. So the chiefs are the patriots. If he can't flip the field, man. They're they're tough there in for deep. I'm surprised I would be surprised if they don't move on after this year. But I mean that feels kind of obvious, but there's no reason to wait for the off season to make change because dungeons is not very good. How about Melvin Ingram today? Man. He was everywhere ado, look like a man possessed. Let me see what he finished with. I'm pretty sure. Pretty sure yet to Sachs. So Melvin finished the game with yet to sacks seven tackles. You just all over the place. They moved them inside quite a bit. And he was given her style. Hurst big time issues by remember right hers, play tackle at North Carolina bumped inside I think it was like a a late around pig too. So, but he was always known as like a bad athlete, which makes his while inside. But yeah, he just yet. No answer from elven Ingram. Spin move little hesitation it almost looks like he's doing like a crossover, but. Man. He he bought out today. That's for sure. So they're going to need. But there need that same kind of thing against Tom Brady, sue because. I I'm having. I don't know off the top of my head. How good that office of line is. But I actually think the charges have the advantage in their secondary against like the patriots receivers. So if they can if they can get after they have a good chance, I actually think that the patriots are good match for but we can get that a little bit later keeping going with this game. Just bouncing around a little bit. How about four thousand one or it's sorry. It's I think it's third in seven or thirty eight Lamar scrambling around breaks the pocket late in the game and Derwin chases him down. I don't know if he was a spy or not. But he basically he broke his angle a lot of guys. I mean, shoot you seen it every week that. Lamar just brakes your angle so for Darwin's like track him down and prevent getting that first down that was huge this game the way, especially the way, they moved off the end there. They might have lost his game. If if Darren doesn't make that play so he makes the tackle on the mar and from there, that's when Tucker came out and miss the Phil go just some of these athletes they have on defense. It's really changed. It's really changed with what they're able to do like is super fast. Obviously it's not play did play today. But he's super athlete than Darwin. We know speed up front today. New. Oh, sue, big time athlete. You can you can tell he he just brings a different level of speed. So new all sue Ingram when they come off the edge like that and still have both on the field. That's nuts. Man. Mike Davis drop that interception. He made it. I mean, he made nice plan the ball and he made another nice play on the ball down the end zone. But a like those were the ones that Casey Hayward was catching the last two years. I don't know if we're so spoiled by that and expect everything to be interception. But feels like they've dropped quite a few interceptions this year. Speaking of Casey Hayward. What was that on that? What was he doing on that? On that. Touchdown. He have. He just looked like it honestly looked like he didn't know that they were gonna keep like they were gonna throw past ten yards. It was really weird, man. Really really weird. Only see some of these comments. I missed autumn. Is J brand dump for the season. I don't think they put him on IRA yet. But I'm I thought that I thought that he was I soon that he was out for the season. Somebody can probably correct me on that. Let me see here. A how do we feel about being the name be the same officiating crew for oh will these officials being in the Super Bowl? These are some of the worst officials out of ever seen a house at Derek while play not a touchdown. I thought he was obviously in and then the Melvin Gordon play the like the very next player that that third. Now, there's just from little from a little game. I saw these refs were horrible like so-so bad. The idea of having a safeties linebackers genius James Phillips in dies linebacker good yet van gusts light. He made some really good adjustments. He he did like they did a lot of good things in the second half of last game. Like, for example, covering up. The like I said like a double eagle is what they call. So you cover up the center in both guards that way your dues behind can just run all over. And that's what he did. So he made a just once, but I feel I he also. Last game. They weren't prepared for like whenever Lamar will Roth Faulk at or whenever he would just go play action or anything like that. It seemed like they were they they they knew everything that was coming. So they did us some really good working it it probably helped that they were able to just see them. So recent those all probably muscle memory from studying last time they're able to correct itself. I saw Phoenix blown up. Every time was scored a touchdown. What we have to get lamp in. So I didn't I didn't see much of that in meeting that. I haven't caught I didn't catch the office of limelight much today. But I mean, that's not surprising. I I was listening to the ringer podcasts. Michael embargoes actually talking about that show field is even worse, which I don't think he is. But they're both. They are both failed. Just not good in a team. Like the ravens may you gotta give them credit. They are super physical and supergrasses end. They blitz. The most of any team. The NFL it booked sixty one percent of time are sorry. They don't they pressured rivers last game sixty one percent of the time. So with knowing them that they booked so much I figured that. It was going to be another rough one for the office of lime. The ravens managed a really good defense. The good news is the patriots are nowhere near as physical and nowhere near as like just fast and aggressive. So another reason why like that match a lot I feel like a we're gonna have quite a bit of time to throw the ball next week. And I think the offense can light it up, but more questions are disabled. I think he expected help from Jenkins over the top on that it it had it had been. I didn't even see I don't think it showed the replay. They only showed it like after he ran by him. But speaking about that Hayward. I t that was nuts, man. I've never seen him do that. So I feel like you give them the benefit of the data just came at one of the worst possible times to have that happen in the frigging playoffs man of that don't they have been Brown. Legit lamp can't get in because Billy's same. He's not the same player as of yet. I feel like that's pretty a common theme that we're hearing to just about. You can't move like east like were made lamps. So good is us gets spots that not a lot of other Lyman could so. Will we use Henry as decoy next week to keep the tiding goat open? So here's my train of thought they knew that they're gonna win this week duh happened next week knowing that they're gonna go against guard. Caskey cannot activate Henry to show the patriots sat Henry is better than gone Caskey. So Tom to let's go up to his old tricks. Fooling us all. So will he be court? I don't know. I was I heard through the grapevine that Henry was not going to lie. He wasn't going to play this week. He's not he earlier in the week. He just didn't look that great supposedly. So it's not too much of a surprise. I didn't know what he was gonna do anyways this game. But if he's able to I think if you just progresses he's able to progress like they think he is within a week. He. I think he has a better as a much better chance of playing in seven days as he did seven days ago that makes he's just progressing a lot more. And I think giving giving him this week off the train of thought would be that way agent contribute. More into not just play like ten plays here. I mean, the odds that he gets dinged up has set bag is probably greater than he makes. He makes like third in five conversion something like that. Honestly, I think forgot how to play conventional football the marketing drove for three quarters. I mean that was that was a weird weird game. It seems like the ravens coaching staff was so terrified that like Lamar was gonna fault. Like he does fumble lot that that should be the the main criticism easy. He just doesn't hold all the ball. But like that him throwing the ball would just set offense back so much. They do even in the third damp in in the third quarter or knows the fourth quarter. Like when they were making those dry when they're about to come back there. I passed play was him rolling to the right? He faked like he was gonna run it. And then he liked pulled up. It looked like a trick play like somebody do with running back. So like that was their idea of passing. And then the final two drives they run their regular office. In would what would you know? He's sorry make plays. But I think their coaches are so terrified of they're gonna have to review that. But I yeah, they were able to shut that offense down. That's for sure I saw I looked at some of the numbers that the defense had. At one point. I think it was with eight minutes left in the fourth quarter. The ravens had thirty nine at run thirty nine plays in only had ninety yards as ridiculous you. You. Don't see that at all. You don't see that on any level? What is that like a two and a half yards yell? It's like two and a half yards. A carry tune half yards. Play doesn't happen. I think before those last those last two scoring drives when Baltimore starting to move the ball. They hadn't had a first down for like two and a half core for like two almost two full quarters that that kind of tells you how prepared in how good that the charges played on defense. I think look like they're tackling was a lot better. So that was really what got him last game. So all these just the perception of how how last game was was so off just a couple mistake -als and a couple a couple of big plays made. It seem like the ravens were a lot better than what they really did is just weren't man. It it really didn't feel like they would have the same type of success that they did last game of the all the passes down the field. I play game. Mike Williams had his man beat. So that's a win. But balls underthrown interception key now back. Shoulder fade is open. Call for the past interference very next play. Mike Williams, third fourteen gets twenty yards of Keenan saw argue with the refs. Play as account with those things aren't going to happen again in the final interception tribesmen, which didn't have any real the game because Ardy over. But though, you those are the plays. If the you know, you remember, so you'd think you had some success, but those aren't like repeated that's not gonna happen again. I swear Gus Bradley's purposely trying to give charge fans a heart attack with his late for court fourth quarter defense so on the play where during jump super high the air and it went over his head. If they were still blitzing in playing man coverage like that play just happened to happen of like, I said, if if my Davis intercepts wall, we're not talking about this. He stayed aggressive. They're played man coverage. They just they just didn't get after it on that drive. But no sue came through nice speed off the edge in swatted out of his hands. So we didn't have to worry about it. But. Was a little nervous when they started moving the ball at the end there. But I felt like that like a sack would just take him out. Charge way will do it. I do not understand the willingness to I'm well aware that he just by all that everything that I've heard that he did not play well in the first half just the ravens as teamed in. But I don't understand going to Joe flacco first of all have you seen? Joe flacco Lamar playing is the re like Joe flacco is the reason that you put Lamar in the first place. So why would you take him out who is a statue by the way, and as you can see some of those places the end like that's Lamar just being an athlete by time. Flacco got crushed man. And it's now he's the greatest thrower ever. You have seen in plays. If if flacco is in the game, I feel like the charge would have been favorites. If flacco was the starting quarterback. That's how big of a difference between like what he can do for that offense. And what the market do that offense. He's just not he's not good. They're gonna cut him in the off season. That's it's dumb that just a knee jerk reaction that people would want flacco in. But yeah, he's gotta give really should be getting credit to what the charge were able to do to them, man. I don't know just charged. You really really good on defense. And I feel like we're gonna we've been saying that for the last what? It seems like the last two months or so that's what it's been like they've been a very very good defense. Even somebody somebody asked me today. Like, what are they gonna do to hide their bad run defense in over the last two months? They've actually been like a top seven run defense in the NFL. It's they're not they're not what we're used to see. That's for sure. They've they're literally are sorry. They trying to think of how to say just like, it's really just their speed. Their speed is taken over. And it's just not were used to see not what we saw last year. I don't know if it's like a health FANG of guys playing confident guys running runs the ball flying ball playing with feeding off each other. So. Would they should have run? Justin Jackson said of on that goal line play in the first quarter. I did not see it. So I don't know what happened the first quarter side miss of a whole first half somebody's going to have to chime in on that one. But speaking of equerry he had the first down like if he if he makes that first down and runs off with three minutes or the charges. Get another get a first out. We're not talking about that late. Gus Bradley fourth quarter either. It looked pretty clear that he like he had angle on getting the first down just live and then slow on directly. Like, wow, why did he go down? It seems like imagining his head. He's trying to run the clock. But I don't know if he I don't know that was just I don't know if it was a brain fart or what battery is gonna kick us to Super Bowl. He's difference maker. So even with the miss it seemed like a good. So I think batteries miss the sound sue. Super Homer, by the way. I totally get this. This seems like more of a process verse results. So he he seemed like in Baltimore. He's trying to drive these kicks low. And that's what that's how you affect the win. 'cause it was supposedly like fourteen mile an hour winds. So he drives it low, and it just so happened to block that time. But we saw it other times. I think what he hit today. Five of six and. Yeah that one was a block so any of the fifty three yards. So he knows. Is just a process results. Say man. Yeah. He's he's really good. He. I don't know how how they went. So with Surtshis still funny to think about like how how bad was he how how long was that dude's leash? I wonder what Bagley look like in practice to to not be able to get these opportunities because he he's killing her right now, he's he's kinda godsend for them. I share. So it's definitely good have Sturgis out here Bagley go, but we have done yet dot yet. We talked about Don if you guys missed that. He's gotta go, man. He's just not cutting it he's averaging thirty five yards. Punt. And if you go outside right now, we should all do it challenge. Just like hashtag Donny go outside try to see if you can punt a ball, thirty five seconds. If you want to simulate it to like NFL, just take take a step just take one step in putting over thirty yards. And let's we should do that for because I don't think you understand how. How bad that is for a professional for somebody who does this for a living. Can't can't punt the ball that it's mind blowing to me. I mean at Weill out kick Sturgis in the preseason it kept. They really didn't miss. But apparently practice was a different story. Who knows light practice means more? Yeah. He did he messes up a lot. He does a lot of bad things Jones jail. He got some fortunate rose in this game. All he did have that that very last one. I think that was longest one where he. It kept. It seemed like it rolled like ten more yards. So I don't know, man. He he's gotta go. We know that though. So looking at oh, let me see you the expert picks. We didn't get to those Matt Bowen pick. The ravens don't have anything bad inside love. Matt bowen. Louis Riddick while. Well, while Louis Riddick the ravens, and I'm sure that. Yes. Some very smart things to say, I'm sure that he has he's totally sure what the charge wanted to do uncle Lou wrong. Again. What do you know who else the other guy? I don't know who these other people are. But they're all they're all ESPN guys. They honestly look like some just frapp rose. I don't know let me see who else. Are you saw Jason lockenfora did? Yeah. I don't know any of those CVS either. But a lot of people did pick the Reverend I would love to know their reasoning. I imagine it was just because they won last time. They solved a salt rivers being sacked a lot that. Yeah. That's not sustainable how they how they won last time. I'm honestly surprised at the charge will dogs in this. I get that. They're they're on the road. But how much does homefield advantage mean when you have a rookie quarterback? And you're going against a Philip rivers like a quarterback of that caliber doesn't make much sense to me. Oh charge one. Do you think is gonna play next week? I do. Yeah. I think he will be young filled. And I think next week would be more of like this week where it'd be situational. Or where people thought it would be like this week where she's like situational ten fifteen plays bla-bla-bla. Let's talk a little bit about the patriots. Let's over with the ravens. They want new. They're gonna win. It's not much of a surprise to me. So I think that we were all pretty confident that the charges were gonna win. It's not. They scored twenty four points last game on some on a sixty three yard pass and like two big runs on the charges were probably not gonna be for while charged hat off sneck way back healthier Melva. Gord back. It just didn't seem like they were going to have that those same struggles on offense. So let's see some of the patriots numbers. They are the fifth. Best offense fourth best passing offense ninth best rushing offense. And actually from washing them a little bit this year. They're run game is really good. It's obviously it's not like the ravens running game. But they will go like old school and get under center and bring in a bunch of bodies and just run it with Sony, Michelle. So that will be a challenge for the charges for sure good news is charged are good sobbing run. And obviously family comes first. But I think we all. Against the against team like the patriots. They're definitely going to on need agai. Brandon me bang just to help inside and south at run. But. Hopefully, if like, I said, his family's okay in that comes first because football is certainly not that serious defensively. The patriots are let's see a middle pack sixteen at the fourteenth best passing defense in nineteenth. Best rushing defense. Seattle do against certain receivers. It looks like they are not good at. Stopping the other teams running back. So maybe that means we'll see a lot of Gordon equa Jackson in the passing game. What else? Let's look at some of the patriots staff. It's. I feel like I mean, I don't know what his number said. But I feel I just going off memory that. This has been a quote unquote down year for Tom Brady. That's not true. He has more passing yards. They Philip rivers as a couple of touchdown passes. But I don't know it seemed like she's just been more shoddy more shaky. He I don't know something is off about the patriots. I don't know if it is because they lack that big weapon like a Josh, Gordon or what? Sodium show nine hundred thirty one yards Julian Edelman top receiver young has eight yards think he did miss some time. But I think that's what I mean. They don't have like a guy that will scare you like the Steelers haven't Tony Brown. The chiefs have tire kill the saints. Michael Thomas, the patriots don't have that guy. And the chargers like those are the guys those kind of guys that I feel like give the chargers fits where you can like you can be so good. Like you have your pass rush there. But a guy gets opened just because he's that good. So. That'll be a I really think that they're gonna beat the the patriots. Honestly, I think they opened up five point underdogs death taxes in patriots over chargers. Why man, I don't know? I liked the batch of a really do what's gonna bite us in the ass mortgage? The patriots Donnie or a die. We so against the ravens last game. They picked on number thirty seven. This game was more. Just I mean, they really didn't have a chance to do that. But you can bet just put all the chips to the table. And know that thirty seven is going to have a bullseye on his back. I'll be very surprised if they don't attack him just by running to saves atoms. Trying to get him to go one way on play action. Which is he is he a pain to watch on that. But I will be died just because he'll have more opportunity. I don't I really don't think that they're going to need the Jones too much, and they. Teams team that usually slowdown. The chargers have a really good pass rush or just like get two rivers right away. So the patriots have a like, Stefan Gilmore this year. He's he's been a top two top three quarter like hands down almost almost like object. He's been very very good. And I don't recall he's gonna shit. If he does move around like fouls people, but I can guarantee in manned situation on third down. He'll be on candidate. That'll be a really good match of so going today like a Mike Williams or tyrel to just make plays. How about that dropped by tyrel? If he doesn't drop today score on that drive on remember if they scored a touchdown on that drive. What that play by rivers that was that was like vintage old non say non December rivers where he adds some pressure. He needed some time. He just kept like. Just buying time. By fleeing the pocket of the pocket and was able to make a play that was like a big big time play a tyro handed in everything. And then the DV comes out knocks away. You could tell his you can he knows that he'd goofed on that one. But that was that was a hell of a play. Rivers ran lighted animal today. Yeah. That that of first down run that he had that was like his longest of the season. That's so bad, man. He I, but he got up like civil the first now my favorite play that I saw rivers today was. The ravens pointed out of their own Izzo. And it looked like the ball landed like well-short midfield and rivers has his hand up. It is running down spotting or the ball out of bounds. I laughed my ass without so funny to me he's like constantly talking shifts all the people, and you know, it has to get under your like, it has on your nerves you that would bother me so much of may said that that like match you hit and he got hurt and rivers told him. That's what should get like that guy. I can only imagine how he is in practice or what I wonder what he's like does. He talk shit to his kids like imagine him. Just just giving him. You know, he's got material because he has a damn houseful. But of that guy, I can only imagine. Get see the patriots have on defense. Just Macoris the other corner. He's older. Yeah. Outside of Gilmore. They should have some some success for sure Democrats questionable. That's interesting. But if you just look at their listen to these names do any of these names sound like sound like they like their athletic trae flowers is very good pass rusher Lawrence guy. Hello balkan. Brown was good run. Sabir a Dietrich wise, not fast, not like athletic won't give you problems, Colvin noise. More like of a smart kind of guy. I don't think Landon Roberts is fast. I know down to Hightower is not fast and then Patrick Chung. Who is good? But I feel like I mean, he's he's good. We'll leave it at that. And then of course, he's not fast Devin mccourty is questionable. He's very good. Cephlon gilmore. Yeah. They're just like a like a Bill Bill. Check defense smart guys know how to play but you can beat them in. It's it's been happening. The patriots have not to play anybody. So. An issue will be stopping James Devlin hunt shorted out or and go on. We'll get a lot of convergence for them. So the pair wanna patriots best plays though is like. The quarterback sneak is like their their their main short short play. Tom Brady's like a hundred percent on on those. I don't know. What what do you think? What what would be your prediction for next week? I I really do think that they're gonna win. Just like I thought they're gonna win to Ma today. Tomorrow. I think the real problem will be the following week. And doesn't matter who they play either of those other teams whether it's the culture chiefs. I think that's gonna be a showdown for sure. But obviously you've gotta get there. I know I think we're good here guys. A ravens not much of a fight a came back late. So made it seem closer than it is. But don't forget man, they made a lot of plays where the game should know. Should not have been this close at all, man. That's just what the charges do. They like to make it. Interesting cannot do that against the team like the patriots. So can continue to make mistakes. Whatever may be offense defense saying bounds. Getting the first down making kicks back on putting the ball over ten yards. But oh well. Oh, well, man move on. Winter's win. We will be back next Sunday hoping a take care guys. Hello.

Mornings with Keyshawn, LZ and Travis (HR 2) 190510

"It is funny. Good days like getting up early days getting up early every morning sometimes man it's early. But then. Yeah. That you're done late morning. That's a good feeling. This is special Friday to you know, why why L Z's here for a Friday especial Friday edition of the show. What he's doing right now. I'm you wanna stand. You want me to start fat jokes? I don't know. What that first part you said. But are here we go. I think he's trying to say you never come to work on Fridays. Trying to say. Always in a buffet line. Go. They're not creative. At least is it time to start in the breakfast burrito. Nobody ever would have guessed that ELS e Mr. liberal is the is the bully of the bunch. Liberal who'd key. Thank you for the vegan. Apple pie are apple pie. It's fantastic. Yeah. Had hide it from Chris. I mean the elevator. That's okay. With me. He, you know, he saw it in my hand is is lit up on the other. What's that? What's that? There was for Travis the apple pie. Oh, you really brought him. I mean, take a look under knee. No. When I said it's still apple pie. And we don't need Travis seventy excuse to eat apple pie. Just because it's vegan. That's what I said. It was good. It doesn't it tastes like apple pie. There's a lot of stuff. That's missing in it that will give you, you know. That's right. But you know, we're stuff that isn't missing is. Six fifty eight and we fire of Doppler. In bitcoin right now at sixty five degrees, mostly cloudy. A couple of soaking showers supposed to happen to that. Okay. Yeah. A little bit go. Hey, when that happens home, national clean up your room day. He's headline sprint all over the room's. Not everybody know today. It's friday. So the house clean, but still you know before the weekend. Yeah. Always you wanna make sure before the weekend. I want to come out of the weekend after they destroy it. Done on Friday. So as good when everybody can people coming over on the weekend things of that nature by people over. Well, see, I really don't either. But there's always a few that trickle in. In the end never got invite. We'll make it out. And then on Monday, come back. They clean up on Monday to. You too. No, I was telling you about to say Kaku wrote the music. So this this story keys headline is a little bit of a head scratcher for me. And I think it would for you guys to California teacher with breast cancer needs more sick days. Not only that. Here's the part that gets me. She has to pay for her own substitute teacher to take over. Yeah. Yeah. Into San Francisco. Parents in San Francisco or rallying around the second grade teacher with breast cancer who will be who will will have to cover her own cost with substitute teacher replacement while she's on extended leave a glee park elementary school teacher who did not want her identity. No will likely be on leave the rest of the year. The San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday, she could have as much as two hundred and forty dollars a day deducted from her salary to pay for a substitute teacher. Thanks to a nineteen Seventy-six rule. I was four years old at that time changed the California education code. So she has to now pay for all substitute teacher. Which is crazy. This is why the government in places like that people that make these decisions that you elect these officials are all stupid to me because listen to KFC. Los angeles. That is ridiculous. A woman clinging to to six sickness clinging, obviously to try to get healthy and do all this and you pay for her substitute teacher because she has to take off to get healthy. That's like crazy to most of all I had no idea that teachers were responsible for paying or having money deducted for the checks when a substitute comes in. And I'm sure at some point they were thinking teachers were taking three day weekends and just sticking it on the substitute. And there's probably some idea of let's make sure that they act, but this woman is sick. Yes. She's sick. She's not looking to go. Spend an extra night in Vegas. She has breast cancer. Yes. In this Zik. This was Dopp did in nineteen seventy six so I don't even know who was in our office area Brown. Yes. Governor battle was back. I'll say nineteen seventy six I would even know who was up there doing all anticipation and doing all sorts of stuff. But it's ridiculous. That's all I can say in, you know, it's one of those deals where I had to bring it up. I mean, it's a, you know, it's not a ideal headline that we would like to to always, you know, talk about. But I wanna make sure I'm bring light to that is just ridiculous. I don't know if if the law took effect in nineteen seventy six when Jerry Brown took office, or if this was Reagan who passed it and the who's governor governor before that? But either way it goes, it should have been fixed for the last forty years of governance, and what are some of the teacher union? So more than thirteen thousand has been raised through a go fund me page to help her get through this situation. That's Gavin page news. So that was keys headline today in on Monday. On Monday is going to be announced that they've rigorous. Back start. Sorry that you have breast cancer. Here's your money back. Right. Come on, man. That's brutal. All right. So the raiders are the raiders for whatever that means mostly of late for negative reasons because Johnny boys doing Johnny boy things trading away Khalil Mack. They were throwing the ball to the wrong spots. For whatever reason they're flirting with quarterbacks. They're doing draft things that don't make sense to a lot of people. And now, according to X Rayed are kalija OSA Malay if I'm saying that right? He's therapists are busy because players think that they'll be traded. And if I'm interpreting that right that players are walking to the team say, hey, I don't know what's going on around here. I'm a little apprehensive. I don't know if I'm coming or going. I mean, that's just life as a professional athlete, unless you're Tom Brady was really really not life of a national no national athlete because as a just so stick the football. You're you're in the all season conditioning. Ages right now some teams have just come out of minicamp. Some teams are going into mini camps. Some teams are getting ready for TA's. You you. You're not walking around on eggshells when you have a five year hundred ten million dollar deal with sixty of a guaranteed in. You're not filling that way at the at the New York Jets, you feeling that way in Seattle. You're not feeling that went San Francisco, but if you had a same contract, and you and Oakland you fill a certain type away because of the environment that he's created. You know what I'm saying tire? Smith at at the Dallas Cowboys Toronto myth is not sitting around worrying about Jerry Jones trading him. That's not something that Prescott not sitting near the arrest guy was in Oakland. He would be sitting there going man is do my trae me because the other organizations are more traditional more stable more predictable. No is just that. They don't they don't make you feel like this. As an issue every time you walk into the building you walk into the Bill with this, dude. Everything's an issue. Everything about it ever since he's taken over. Everything's been an issue. What have you said positive not a lot? There hasn't been a lot to say other than their draft or not, okay. Little bit of a weird one with their first pick. But other than their draft. There's not a lot to say a whole from day one. When he took over the first thing you say it was well Reggie McKenzie. His days a number. Well, Khalil Mack is gonna be go up. This guy. Amari Cooper is next. Here's gonna start picking on car. See what? Oh, this is. What happened? Oh, traffic co Miller. I mean, there's nothing positive to say so the players within that building already know. So when they're talking to the psych in they're having this conversation in they wanna know. Well, what's wrong, you're down in pounds? You were lifting this much now, you lifting that much your eyes gloss glassy you've been on night low where we say to you on Monday, you know, in so. First of all it take you two and a half hours to get going on Monday because you doing too much on Sundays and Saturdays. I should've thought about that. Think about moves two and three Raj. So it's not uncommon to have a psychiatrist sitting there in the building. Every team has somebody that you need to talk to the little guy with the glasses with the funny hair cut. Everybody has one of those sure all the teams have is just whether or not you want to use them. You know, look, there's recommend therapist attractive. Yeah. Not to say to do ugly. But both of them just got the little glass. Jon Gruden clearly falls into this category. Because some people when they're in positions of leadership or management. They wanna make sure that every feels good about themselves the direction of the building and everybody can feel like they're in a safe spot. So they can do their best work. There's also other people that do at the exact opposite that if no one's comfortable if everybody thinks that at any point they can be shown the door that if no one is guaranteed tomorrow that I'm going to get the best Eddie today because you want to make sure that you can come back tomorrow, and I've worked in both places like that. And I think it depends on the people some people can can survive in environment. Where it look I don't know if I'm here tomorrow. I don't know. Maybe I will be maybe I want them to do my work today. And we'll see what happens tomorrow. But a lot of people do need to know that. Hey, I'm good. I like you we're fine. Yeah. But but but I work with the worst in Bill Parcells. Okay. Everybody was walking on eggshell. Sure. Okay. Be. But at the same time, even though he was even know you was walking on. Shales is as she was doing what you supposed to be doing doing everything you worry about tonight. I I would just simply say that. As we talk about this story in the monstrous that the veterans of Oakland Raiders are going through and needing therapists and things like that. Remember what we said about the young players with the Lakers and how we were like, oh, be professional blow. Their names were in trade talks to they took a dip and some people ridicule them for not being professional enough. Here's an example of veterans saying that's a stressful situation that can impact you in a very negative way. But but these name they're not in trade talks. He made the build uncomfortable. When you get rid of a guy like Khalil Mechlin. You'll get rid of a guy. Like Mark who done? Nothing wrong. They done nothing wrong. That's the stress part coaching booby Bill Parcells as long as you did what she was opposing getting rid of a good point. Good player is you know, all these young guys brought up rookies and young players key. No that makes me think about a little bit on the door. Out that door me says anything. So it's not true. This is very calculated thought. Open your alive. Now, it's gonna get Chris the wake-up. That's right. That's right. Apple pie. Hey. So we talk about the rookies in Vegas has released the top ten odd favorites for rookie of the year winners this year the top ten for rookie of the year. Go ahead. Travis. You ready ready to go? Kyla murray? Calamari is number one twenty five you know, what that means those e you put down five dollars down to twenty five back not quite he's number one on the list. Those e rookie for top year this year. Shoot. I'm gonna go against Bosa guests since he's number two. All right. Rookie of the year. Let me give you let me give you a Cam looking at this list. It looks like they're all offense. So I'll give you another chance family. Go ahead mister clever clever. In. Oh. And I'm done off into the office. I'm done and I'm not one please for the damn team. We were just talking about but go hit ofensive rookie of the year. Yeah. I know. Haskins. Let's see Haskins. You know, what Dwayne half on the list number two, plus seven fifty. That's right Keyshawn. Gimme one Jacobs on the raiders. There you go. There's Jacobs is number three. You guys. You guys are doing better than you thought. See? Two. All right. My next guy. And then Jake because it's an offense because it's market because you got to play I think all those things are going to happen with this guy. Not that. I think he's good Daniel Jones Daniel Jones for the New York Knicks. We just talked about yesterday could have a chance start number. Plus, our New York Knicks. He he's he's like calamari twos. Star. It's not your turn l z. Go ahead. He's number ten, by the way, Daniel tickets, just nothing. Rookie of the years, according to Vegas. There are more on the list. You might as well bump up. Keyshawn Hollywood Brown. Hollywood Brown is number four on Eliza back you trap. He's going to get the belt here we go. Trying to think of other teams that picked high and took an offense a player defensive draft out of names. We'll think to position. Got the court of being the running think think just handed over to. Yeah. I'm out. J F DJ Metcalf is number twelve would would've been. Gets about Jiu lock position still quarterback. Jay hopkinton. Kohl heart. Hartman hotter tied in from Detroit. Fant your favorite d-mo deebo Samuel. And then in kill Harry. Yeah. So those are he's pretty good. Just think about the office of players that you just mentioned. Well, the the first round was I wanna say what twenty of the defense every every that. You just mentioned office is hot garbage to me, even calamari Kate. He's hot garbage. I'm not buying that. I'm not buying somebody's got to win. The somebody's gonna get. It might be Joey this think about Nick, Nick office. Lear PB played his final game for the Golden State Warriors. We'll get into it next. Look out key sound like they're coming for us. I'm running through the bushes. Somebody's chasing me on the slow. Walk your outright. What is right? Wait. Hold on. Right, thirteen Mary. Go. Mask look at the run down. You'll see why thirty nine years ago. Friday, the thirteenth came out. Did it come out on Friday the thirteenth if they were doing it? Right. If you hit. All right. That was my favorite of the eighties. Scary ones. Good what? Because it just Gary especially the end when I wasn't expecting thousand Goodwin. The original Halloween was really good with Mike Myers that didn't touch me the way the one that's been very top for me nightmare announce it. That's messed me. Goal was terrifying. Your dreams, man. Yeah. The first one sleep. I one was spooky. Freddie krueger. Yeah. But Friday, the thirteenth was the glove with the knives. That was banned was campy too. Yeah. See that one. Freddy, Krueger's, cool, but Michael Myers in them. That was Michael Myers music. Michael myers. Jason now YouTube gets going you gotta get those two realistic. Well, the assuming. A little bit. That's real. You always got some food walking around doing something should be doing this not realistic, man. He never ran once code everybody. That was scary now. He was. At least was chasing people and shopping him up. No, you knew the shortcuts many out there. Skill will walk it. What about John leather face, Texas? That's real. Those type of people exist didn't. Ask they should wants to gas up the chain. Okay battery net. Don't look at the don't look at the the the script of the movie and look at that. Okay. Just look at weirdos wearing masks in hiding in bushes and jumping out some mysterious doing all those things. That's what I'm looking. I'm looking at that sort of stuff where you could potentially be out in the woods camping is some food to size that he just wants to do something wrong to you and your family. That's real okay. That part is going to sleep is some dude with loan fingers would not chasing you down the hallway. That's not real. I'm just saying it seems as if if you've woken up from a nightmare you understand what was going today. Yesterday. Exactly the basement. This is real this is doing down there. Do's down there doing makeup put makeup on with in in. You know got a little cigarette on the edge. With the ash falling off his cigarette. Hayes right on eight talk into into itself. Got some new behind these looking at a mirror do behind him with a chain on the left training on the right chain on his ankles would apple in his mouth dressed in leather? Sounds. No, I was supposed to with the apple my mouth, no house eight the app trying to figure out he tried to decide win. He's going to take the dudes face off. That's realistic. I'm really offended that you've messed up this Depeche mode song that he's not wrong. Not rose. Not real was released on a Friday. Nineteen eighty. Kilkeel was thirteenth Friday may ninth. So say the date because we're daylight on celebrating it anyway. But anyway. Friday may not right so game. What's tonight? Tonight's game. Six in Houston. The warriors have a chance to close it out go to the conference finals again for would that be the fifth year in a row on the Friday night. I don't know if you watch it. That's not all bad. Yeah. They should probably had them a Saturday though. They're going have game seven on Sunday if they get there. There's a chance that we've seen. Kevin durant? His final game for the warriors for a couple of different reasons. Number one. They might get eliminated and number two, even if they don't get eliminated. If they went tonight or Sunday night, we tonight not tonight, you could get eliminated on Sunday. Yes. And then obviously, you know, we'll see what happens with free agency. But even if they don't get eliminated if they advanced to go to the Western Conference finals, we're not exactly sure when Kevin Durant will be back. We're being told that he might be available for that second round. But who knows because that injury could be one of those things he takes one step in warm ups and pop, obviously, you know, by now Durant. We'll miss a game six tonight as you say it in hopefully, be back potentially for game seven if not he could potentially be on his way out of the doors a free agent. But I doubt it, I don't even I doubt it. I think he's gonna wind up backing Golden State because they got something when you especially if you're injured in you don't finish the task. You don't wanna go out like that? When you're Kevin Durant. You wanna go out with a Bank? If that's something that you decide, but you gotta think there's a new arena coming to town. You know, they've been on a mission to do something special. Why wouldn't you wanna be? A part of that. Why would you wanna go somewhere else when you have an opportunity to do something special with the warriors because you're insecure? Yup. Bingo, secure. But everybody keeps saying he's secure. He's not his actions actions hasn't done anything to start listening. Okay. Fine. This star with the shoes. Okay. And the inserts of all the things that people say bad about him. He had them printed on a pair of shoes. Not the first year night with a couple of days of Levy pretty but alone time already passed to. Okay. So why can't keep that? Members my list. This is the top team. He had a burger account. Burner cow to defend his actions. While also criticizing the action of okay, see one. Yes, he yelled at a teenager on Instagram. Well, I would say. I would say the burner the burner account. Is a little disturbing having having the shoes put together, I don't. I don't care about that. I mean, I I know everybody says some bad about me to this day. So does that make me secure not insecure? Does that make me secure because I remember when Elsie wrote the story about meeting note, the hell he was on a pair of shoes. I don't have another pair of shoes because I don't wanna put it on a pair of shoes. But if I was planning to today's game, I probably would do based on what they do shoes now secure. And I'm not saying I'm so far because if I was a secure I wouldn't be working here with Joe because y'all trying to get rid of me every other day. So okay. This is still going. There was a time in which he wasn't speaking to the media. Okay. Because he felt the media was mistreating him as funny spoke to the media. He tried to go off on a media because we writing stories about his free agency. And he didn't wanna talk about his free agency that doesn't make him insecure because he doesn't want to talk to the damn media. Then why would you talk to them? Meeting. All they do is talk. Negatives the package say negative agency. Anyway, manage twenty four fifty five it's twenty five the Lakers still do not have a head coach. And what does that mean for free agents moving forward regime? Rondo will tell us next happy birthday cake pop. No. Nam-tae hun. Twenty five years old today. So all k poplar young. Yeah. I mean, they're all like within their twenties. I would say twenty two twenty three zero. Yeah. How do you say his name nam Hon nam-tae? Yeah. The band is in hung winner. Nam-tae hunt group is winter the group is winner, and he's the lead singer winner. Well, he's of to members one of the guys shots Tommy twenty five years old birth. His brought today a lot of k- pops. His birthday is brought to you by Jaguar Land Rover of Newport. Be Chris fight Jedi. Jedi were fighting TV black bears big bear. Brought to you by Chad wore Orlando off the seventy three towards the sea. Visit Land Rover Newport Beach dot com. Land Rover above beyond just laugh at the suicide thought about thought about Chris. I was like look at that looked like it was in somebody's backyard to black bears fighting Akito, not interested. Well, no. I mean, I watch quo co the eagle the black bears. There l z at the eagle the eagle. Gotta check that. All right. So the Lakers couldn't get it done with or at least they haven't gotten it with Tyler yet they interviewed Frank Vogel yesterday, baby. They're still trying to figure out who their next head coach is going to be it's been the better part of a month so far regime. Rhonda was on the jump yesterday. And he was asked what it means to have a head coach in position when you go into free agency with is one of my career head coach is big for me. So Sal about vases ship. So if they don't have one say, there's no snow go from me. So Rondo is a guy that's been Lee for longtime. He's accomplished a lot. He's won a championship. He's he's raised on Rondo. He's got a resume. Hall of fame feel like Rondo should assign with somebody already by now. Well, because he's like the season's over he's out there free agency. And I know, but it just feels like free agency like these guys should be signed because the Lakers have been out of it for so long. So he's saying that the head coach or a head coach is important that you know, if for me at this point in my career, I it matters to me where I'm going to go that's regime that the other day everybody thinks most various are looking at it saying I can't even evaluate the Lakers yet because I don't know who their head coach said that the other day, I said is so important that that you have the right head coach, and we talked about the title versus Frank Vogel versus John how versus Jason Kidd. If I'm a free agent. I need to know who I'm playing for a need to know. What system I'm being I need to know if I can can coexist. Remember did a need to be able to coexist with you. If I can't coexist with you in you, hiring somebody that that doesn't make any sense. Me then I'm gonna go somewhere else. It's just it's a part of it. Why would I wanna play for somebody that one? I have no idea no relationship to hear nothing but bad things about three. Who knows what he might tell me at the end of the day and do something different. You don't ever want to put yourself in that position? As a veteran player. So look like you mentioned Elsie free agency doesn't start until July. So they have time. If you're looking at it just by just a time line sort of deal that but out imagine that if I'm a free agent and I'm not in the playoffs or impending free agent. And I'm not in the playoffs that I need to be thinking about where I'm going to go. And if I'm evaluating this team or that team and these two other teams have a head coach and the Lakers have a vacancy. Dear key, saying I can't even start to evaluate what that might be. Because I don't know who's going to be in the chair. Oh, that's true. But again, there's plenty of time. You know, we say you got plenty of time in baseball this planning process, we're barely in the middle of may the season doesn't end for at least another month. This plenty of time. For for the Lakers to hire someone put together a plan during as to begin to talk to free agents. And and look as low as the brawn James is on his team. A lot of players were this actually true or not believe he's going to be the defacto coach. Anyway. So the question becomes can cannot get along with LeBron James more. So than the coach. I asked you that yesterday the idea of I know lebrons there. So I'm going to go there, and you know, no, not so much that LeBron might get along with the coach LeBron might be able to steamroll that coach it'd be the defacto head coach. But he's not to follow the rules with the code where LeBron doesn't. But who am I who am I like what type of player my Jimmy Butler? And then I need to see the head coach. Yeah. Because the Brian I if Jimmy bone on the same level is Brown on the Dan what y'all say, I don't care what you said, I believe that Jimmy Butler believes. We believe the same thing if I'm Jimmy Butler. Don't care. What you you? Don't treat me the same. What you go to you? Now if you talking about. Walker? Yeah. Being that Kim Walker and Jimmy Butler not on the same. Well, no, no, no. No, no, no. Both going to get all the money. We're not talking about money different respect, we respect you respect me the same way respect kings. They better get that job filled. They'd better get it filled. If Jimmy Butler is going to say, I need to know who it is. Because like the land. Don in this. He's thinking about what's next. I'm top dog in this league to you respect me sprint people's hotline. LA and Chris Chris you're on the morning. Good morning, gentlemen. Couple of things Travis. We met outside. The Rams have been at the palladium when you're waiting for Uber. So right on. Yeah. It was a pleasure meeting. You do a great job. He absolutely certainly does a great job there. Christopher hit on real quick. Was that teachers situation, I'm an attorney, and I used to do some teacher cases that you know, like all of us teachers get sick days. And when you go outside those sick days, then you know, you aren't allowed to well, basically, it was probably bargained for where the teachers got a raise and the districts that you have to pay us back if you're not going to be in class, even if you get cancer, that's a different Kurdistani, Chris different deal. No. And they do have what's called catastrophic time banks where people can donate time like most governmental agencies. You could donate other employees. I've done a lot of times someone's family member get sick, or whatever they have taken time off you can donate some of your sick time or Bakke. Time to that person. So it's probably one of those situations that was bargained for a long time ago, and it's gonna change, but the are looking at addressing that the lawmakers are a teacher. Terms in its yeah. Yeah. But anyway, by pointing Connie was, you know, I'm not bashing Lakers as much as a lot of people. I think maybe because tyrod flew his his success around loose success is really been tied to LeBron. And maybe they're not, you know, he has worked a lot of head a lot of other coaching jobs where he's had success. So I think maybe the latest thing we don't want to give you a certain number of years that goes beyond win. Lebron is supposed to be here because your success is tied to him. And it might be some of the optics. This is Jerry Buss or Jerry West. Pulling steel people would be probably looking at how much it makes sense to do. But because it's genie and the the ram by you know. Kurt. If look that is you know, what the heck are they doing? So I don't know. I probably would have ponied up maybe to give them extra year or two just because getting done and get things settled. Yeah. No, they've got they've got a little bit of time. I don't mean to cut you off. They got a little bit of time. But we'll see the question is what happens next with free agency. How does that impact? Their ability to go out and find the next guys take it or shake it. Getting ready for mother's day. Travis. I don't even know if that's a great gift the Keyshawn. I don't know. It wets like. A real boy. I never know why that was like an a sales incentive for a dull that would make a mess. I don't need that in my life. It was the teach the kids how to deal with it. Right. Yes. So it's not the kids. You know? It's just the girls. Then ever marketed to the boys. Ever not really really keeping Stacy's mom over the video. No, yeah. Was stacy's. Mom. Yeah. Yeah. All right. What else can be a mess? Traff. Let's start in the NBA key. The lakers. Do not have a head coach there still in the process trying to figure out who that's going to be Frank Vogel. Was the latest interview for the job yesterday? The Lakers lack of a head coach at this point in the process will affect them in free agency, take it or shake it shake it. I don't think that it will affect him at all because much like ilise miss preaching is that they have plenty of time to hire head coach and plenty of time through free agency to get I mean through this time to get it done before free agency. I think that when you look at it. This is about a what a month and a half to that. You really got a buckle now and get it done. And I think they have plenty of time doing it because you got to remember the scouting department has already created what they feel the Lakers knee. What the boards the targets are Naic coach is going to be the closer at. What point does it? If it's not an issue now, and it's not it's what's today may tenth and. Free agency doesn't start until July. So there is some time. But you don't wanna hire the coach on June thirtieth and open up free agency the next day. When is the time on where it goes from not an issue to you know, what we got a problem here when you find the right person. I mean, no one's forcing the Lakers. Head coach Sundan line not taxes a team together you get punished. So when they find the right person. That's when they'll pull the trigger regardless of what the national media may say, regardless about ten or twelve people who may show for the protests on a Friday downtown in LA. Plenty of time. Those people must have a job. All right, so similar, but a little bit different Kurt Rambis level of involvement with here's is going to deter free agents, take it or shake it. Ooh. Take right now. Take take it right now because this is a growing. Thing out there right now, he's a snake and him and his wife can't be trusted and he's trying to insert himself in a position of power and players in other front office. People certainly has to have taken notice to that. And the whispers are going around as as these playoffs continue to happen. People are at the stadiums in executives watching the games, and they're talking each other and run in each other in concourse and things that there's whisper that man, can you believe what he's trying to do. Can you believe that man you see magic live? So be careful what you wish for and he he doesn't have the added benefit of magic or Michael Thomas Larry Bird when he played no one was trying to be him. No one. No one's going to court going, Kurt Rambis. So he doesn't have the cash eighth. You will of even coming into the post playing career of being seen as a cool person. Right. So he's walking up a mountain. And then we became a coach he wasn't very successful. So you not a player that people gravitated towards and you were in a very successful coach. So he's coming over pretty steep mountains far as it'll be people will feel like he's doing anything to get to the top. So afraid of that I get that it would affect from executive a coat the players. I wonder if it gets that far down. All right next one go to the NFL jets quarterback. Sam darnold says that the team has the potential to make a huge step forward in new head coach Adam gazes offense, a huge step forward for the jets offense, take it or shake it all day long. I think the lady Bill crowded a new acquisition a Washington Redskins at the receiver position. In obviously, lady on Bill. The big free agent signing they spent all the money on was one of those deals where you look at you. Go Kenney bringing an offense and innovator. They did pretty good pretty good. When he was with coach foxy over at the the Broncos. They went to Chicago. He kind of had Jay Cutler playing at a certain level in Miami. He was inconsistent because he had inconsistent at the quarterback play. He gets younger quarterback and Sam darnold. He gets to run a real system. Sam darnold was with Jeremy Bates Jeremy Bates with the offense coordinator year ago who got ta bulls fire Jeremy Bates five years ago. You know, Jeremy Bates was that five years ago video guy. No, Jeremy Bates was in the mountains in Montana. I okay hiding out with a full beard depressed because he couldn't get coaching under his belt the way needed to he took. He took a hiatus for several years in you hire him as an offense coordinator high million going do wasn't as low as Goff was rookie year. But could we see a similar jump where all of a sudden in year, two different guy? I think so I think so I think you can all right. The Rams the Rams interior offense lineman only have eighteen career starts across five NFL seasons. Or you worried about the inexperience on the interior part of the offense of line for the Rams take it or shake it shake it. I'm not worried about him because what they do from an. Office standpoint game planning situation as system it will allow these guys to grow together in jail. If you look at offense is whether it was the Oakland Raiders when they have the domino off line. One of the best in the league. Or you look at the Dallas Cowboys number years. They had young offense alignment that they drafted high. They all eventually jailed together and became pro bowlers. So I think when you look at the continuity that it can be put in place, which I'm in with the Rams are doing right now, not waiting getting rid of Sullivan, those sorts of things onto. They don't wanna pay him. Right. Getting rid of those guys and letting them walk out the door and bringing the younger guys in and letting them jail all together certainly is going to be a benefit for Sean McVeigh Jair golfing girly going forward. I think one of the things that was really underrated with the Rams success. These last two years I've talked about McVeigh golfing girly. And all the things that they brought to the table fact of the matter is those five guys up front with the same five guys every game to seasons in a row that level of continuity, use your worke is almost you can't put a price on it. The same guy's every single week. Yeah. For some reason. I'm just not worried about it. You know, it's not that they're not important, obviously, very important. But I just and Sean McVay I trust. And until he gives me reasons not to I'm not if he's not worried. I'm not worried, right? Same your squad. Key the Seattle Seahawks. Doug, Baldwin Kam chancellor, both let go with failed designations take it or shake it the Seahawks late and those guys go, oh, you take it all day long. We may never play again his injuries. He's thinking about recon plate retirement at thirty thirty one years old because he's just banged up. Football is very violent sport. You know, every time you play a game. It's like getting the two car accidents believe it or not in. So I could certainly see where guy who Doug is not the the biggest wide receiver in the world, certainly takes vicious hits going across the middle all of those sorts of things. And so I could I could see where Seattle, you know. He's one of the greatest one of the greatest receivers in history of Seattle. We look at Kam chancellor chancellor didn't play at all last year. He was completely engineer at that believe he had a neck injury and that was career ending. So you they kept him more for year, they paid him. Now, they have to retool the Seahawks have done. What I would argue is the toughest thing to do in pro sports and not just basketball across the board. And that is maintain a certain level of performance while transitioning from one group of guys to the next day because usually you got a crater you gotta go all the way down as combat eighty. But the interesting thing about it is when you building a football team. Unlike basketball is I can go out and get a very similar person to do the same things that I had before, you know, it's different in basketball. Like if I got rid of Kobe Bryant, I can't go find another Kobe Bryant, it's hard as hail, but in but in football, I can get another six four two hundred ten pound wire receiver to take this spot may not give me everything that I want. But it feels that what I can go get another Cam chance to you may not hit his heart. But he's five percent of it. I'll get eighty five percent of all right game six tonight in Houston. The warriors have a chance to close it out. But can they do it without their best player? That's next.

Mike Schmitz ESPN's NBA draft analyst, and everything you need to know headed into Thursday's NBA draft in New York. Let's get right to it. Here in New York side of the two thousand nineteen NBA draft with ESPN's draft analyst, Mike Schmitz. Mike, are you man? I'm good. Thanks for having me fired up. Can you look at like a Bank of TV's anywhere this week in that see your face somewhere? I don't want to see my face anywhere. I don't think anyone else should have to see my face anywhere. But now it's going to be busy. A lot of airtime could be worse. Yeah. Absolutely. We've got our mock draft show on Tuesday night on ESPN two. Right. ESPN two got to be the to the dues. Yeah. And then we have been sensually the preview show on Wednesday night on the big channel, and then Thursday night, obviously the draft from Barclays center with the whole crew. This is a strange draft Mike. Obviously, we know at the very top Zairean Williamson one job rant to and more than likely. RJ barrett. Three as long as the Knicks. Keep that pick. I think my sense, is they probably will. But there's no consensus beyond that. And I think they'll be some trades in that twenty to thirty range where you'll see some teams moving up in their some teams with multiple picks. Moving out, it feels like it's going to be a real active draft night. Feels like a lot. I think there's a lot of trade taco and on Boston having three picks Atlanta having three picks I would be shocked if either team doesn't do a trade even potentially being part of a big one. I think there's going to be a lot of action. Yeah. And then you think about New Orleans as well. You know, at number four with kind of the theme of the year right was all the draft starts at four, you know, now, potentially that pick is in play. And I think, you know, there are a lot of kind of swing for the fences players in this draft to which could lend itself to some of those teams with multiple picture, right? Whether it's a, a bowl bowl or. Kevin porter some guys with high upside. But maybe some question marks as well. So I yeah I'm really interested to see what happens I four one who's making that pick. But then how much you factor in need versus talent. Because to me, we've been calling it a three player draft. But I think I really think Darius garland deserves to be in consideration there. I think he has as much all-star potential, as RJ Barrett or Jami rant to be honest, if Darius garland from Vanderbilt had not blown out his knee in the preseason and missed a whole year vandy based on what you would seen of him prior and high school before he got to college before the injury. Is it possible? There could have been a debate about he and John Moran at number two, no question. I think there would have been and in to be honest. There are still a couple scouts I've spoken to that would rank him higher, which sounds crazy based on the sample. Size. I think he was poised to have kind of trae young type of impact on college basketball. In terms of a guy who can pull up from thirty five feet who shoots it with incredible range, unwavering confidence. He's not the passer that Trey was. But that's kind of his style, and he was a number one point guard on our board come into the year for reason. And vandy went winless in the league without a right? Eighteen nineteen and lost their coach and lost their coach. You mentioned number four and we've been reporting a lot about what New Orleans might do would that pick from the Lakers. It is very much. You know, it's really up for auction right now. And David Griffin's, I think his mandate here between now and Thursday is try to turn it into an established player because he has that picky has two other picks from the Lakers. They have twenty million or so and cap space, if they want to take a salary on. They don't have to give back much so team could get some money off. And I think he's looking for an established player to come in New Orleans with Zion Williamson, drew holiday, obviously, Brandon Ingram Lonzo ball, not impossible that one of them could be part of just be redirected somewhere else in. So who's the team that moves up and I think if a team is moving up in the four the Andre hunter from Virginia, you mentioned garland. Some people might see four as high for Kobe white, but there are certainly teams who have needed point guard here and he'll be off the board. Probably before he gets six or at six with the Suns, but yeah, I do think four will be that's where the draft starts, and we could be all the way on the clock. On Thursday night in the pelicans, move that they get their offer. And the other thing, too, is, I think they could move back to one thing to Pell's have been doing are trying to lineup players anywhere from four to fifteen sixteen in that range to try to get guys in for workouts to try to get guys, at least for interviews to sort of cover all their bases in an area where they didn't have a pick prior and part of that you have the hawks at eight ten and seventeen. You know, they're certainly if they want to get up to four you know, they may have the pieces to do that. But I do think New Orleans priority is established player. Let's see if we can flip some of this, Laker package, and maybe get an all star, maybe a younger all-star, Atlanta's a team that comes to mind for me. Maybe they don't have that younger all sorta offer. But in terms of a team that I would think is dying to get up to that number four spot, you know, in terms of their need for. A guy like de'andre hunter, you know, I think that's somebody who would slide in perfectly to a team that has a shock creator and trae young. And then Kevin herder, and then a John Collins, they need one of these big versatile multi-positional defenders who doesn't need the ball in his hands. And from what I understand Atlanta's the only team that he worked out for. So I would think that there's some mutual interest there. But there's no question that, you know, once whoever's drafting four is on the clock. That's kind of when it's going to shape the rest of the top ten in this draft for you. Who's that one kind of your Curiel enigma guy who maybe there's the biggest risk reward with who, who jumps out at you that, that you're just really fascinated? See how that night plays out for him. And then how his career plays? Oh, Bobo is the clear one for me. I think you could you could talk about cameras shin. And you could talk about Kevin. Porter. I think those guys are going to be fine NBA players worse case. Just because. You know, they're physically gifted and they have talent with bowl so much of it as about can his type of player, make it through an eighty two game season. Right. Being weighed in at two hundred and eight pounds at the combine coming off of the foot injury. Just the reality of being seven foot three in today's NBA, like how many minutes can you play the wear and tear that comes along with that? But if you're talking about talent like this guy is a top five talent no doubt about it. Like I would slide him right before right after garland. In terms of just top five talent in this draft. He seven three he handles like a guard he can shoot it off the dribble like the only other guy I can think of that when they're at their best offers that blend of skills at seven three is porzingas. But, you know, he's had issues with their ability, and then, so he's the most polarizing guy in this draft, given that it is not a strong draft after I think everybody feels like one two, maybe three, why is it possible for someone with that unique of a player? Why do you imagine? He could fall into the twenties. I think with the foot injury. Obviously teams trying to gather as much medical information as they can there. But there were always questions about bowl, even in high school know, just in terms of, you know, it's almost an overused phrase and oh, does he love the game? Right. But I think within that certainly rings true. He's never been known as the most diligent worker. He's just a guy who can literally roll out of bed, you know after game afford night and give you thirty and fifteen he's just a complete natural. And so I think teams wonder one with the health one with the derby, and then with the is this guy. By going to give it to us, every single night on top of the fact that is physically capable enough. So yeah, again, a guy who I could see really going anywhere from ten to twenty five just because of you know the teams with, with multiple pigs. But then some of the risks that come along with him. Mike have you sensed any like is the needs of teams. How teams are Bill? What's important to teams in evaluating players has anything jumped out with you. And you're talking to guys this year about something that's changing or evolving, or is become a bigger priority than you've heard, or felt in the past, I think teams watching Fred van vely and what he's been able to do are wondering, okay, who is the next Fred vanfleet, who is the guy who has the not just like oh, character. We're not looking for boy scouts right? Like, who is this tenacious all odds are stacked against me guy, who's gonna fight scratch, and claw when his backs against the wall? And that's what I think teams are looking for, you know, we all know you can see talent. Right. We know Zion is good. Or we know RJ Barrett is going to be a good NBA player, but who is the sixty one who everyone's gonna count out and say he doesn't have this. He doesn't have that. But he has the mental makeup to exceed expectations. And I think that's what teams are zeroing in on now more than ever. Mike you brought up an interesting point with Fred van, Blee, undrafted out of Wichita state and a lot was made in the finals in the playoffs of, of a raptors roster. Raptors team that wins the championship without a lottery pick on it and we were in the conference finals, and you're looking at ya'aseh Tenneco against Leonard. Both drafted outside the lottery. Fifteenth overall and. You know, it's funny people always talked about the pistons teams that won a championship sort of without a true star that we would never see the team's Joe Dumars John Hammond, Bill in Detroit, that really didn't have a superstar that we probably wouldn't see that again. We may not see this one again. Right. Like unless Colli stays and they do it again. But that's in this day and age that's almost impossible yet to see what they did with guys like PASCAL. You know, I remember he was playing at the combine. He played in front of every single NBA team. It's not like he was hidden in, in France, or Cameroon, you know, like he was at via combine had the play everybody watched him. And if Toronto didn't take him where they did. I don't know who was gonna take him next. You know. And so guys like that. Norman Powell overachiever types. I think those are the guys you wanna put around a guy like Leonard if. If you have a star inquirer Leonard who, by the way, has those attributes himself, which is what makes him? So rare, you wanna put these tough scrappy dudes who've been counted out their entire life. Like I think the personality that, that team showed in terms of its grit and toughness and then having you know the defense versatility in all those aspects as well. But I thought that they had just had the perfect match of toughness of guys who've been counted out late bloomer types, and then Saul who can kind of keep things flowing offensively. Like like you said, extremely rare group. But I do think that it's going to open some eyes to scouts in terms of looking for guys of that nature. It speaks to the scouting in Toronto, the player development and Dwayne Casey and prior a lot of that work was done when Nick nurse on the staff and case and he deserves credit for that group. You know he played. Through a lot of PASCAL comes growth in his youth. And I remember seeing really noticing sack and for the first time his rookie year in a preseason game. We're in Vancouver. There are playing the warriors. It was Kevin Durant first preseason game. And I just had noticed them at summer league. And I really was getting a look at him for the first time. And I remember seeing Masai at halftime. And I was like holy cow. This guy's really good these. Yeah. We think he might be pretty good. Like in, like you're just like where did this guy come from look into Mexico state? Like what? And that was this off season. They had let biz MAC beyond Bogo, and I remember Masai was really going to hold the line financially. You know, he was not going in his mind overpay biz MAC. There's mecca had an outstanding season for them had kinda come into his own Toronto after the years in Charlotte. And he ended up getting a monster deal from the magic. And Masai wasn't going to go near it, and ends up drafting Ceac him, probably if he's not a max player, he's going to be something just south of it. But it's it is a good lesson in all the places you can go to find players and it reminds you when we say that it is not a strong draft and that the only stars are zion's star Djalmir, ANSA, star. Maybe Andrzej Barrett's going to be one. But you know what? We know that somewhere in at fifteen or twenty two or twenty seven, there's probably gonna be an all star, right? Yeah. It's it's a week draft until it's not. Right. That's what I would say if you years out. I think there are going to be some of those guys and, you know, I really think that to the point I really think that the future of scouting, a lot of ways is in Africa. I think that in five ten years, you might see these teams having a director of African scouting because there are players with the physical attributes over there, walking the street. Meets, you know there are guys who look like Jaanus in Lagos. Nigeria walk in the streets, there guys who look like PASCAL. So it's about, you know, getting to them early and being able to develop their skills at the right age. But I, I really think that we're gonna see more and more, you know, guys from Africa. Who have that chip on their shoulder who play with the motor of PASCAL in have kind of the length in Jillian, switch ability that every team is looking for, you know there's the new African league professional league that the NBA's helping the sponsor and that will start up. I think next season and messiah. Jerry's giants have Africa program, which has been remarkable all over the continent, bringing basketball, PASCAL Ceac, Saffire podcast. Couple of months ago. And Pesca was talking about getting invited in going and really for him. He didn't think as much about going for the competition all that it was just a chance to go travel, and go do something on a weekend, go to a place, he hadn't been -ssarily in and he had helped to open some doors for him. And people saw them and people used to talk scouts, NBA, people would talk about Europe that there was a hunger to players from Croatia Serbia places where there. Had been conflict where players were coming from poverty, and wanted a way out. And we're tough-minded in, you know, skill development was a big part of the program there. And you had these pretty well rounded players were seeing the same exact thing and Africa. I mean, go back Lou all dang who's lived in a couple of different places, but Ceac him, I mean all the way back to decamp bay Akeem as players have come. They come from families in places where education very often is at a premium PASCAL Ceac him. You know, his brother said come over and gone to school here, his parents just wanted to come here and get a degree, and the focus wasn't to become an NBA player was chance to get a college scholarship. And I think it reminds us that our system in this country when it becomes corrupted, by the impact shoe companies have on it travel basketball. That when we give so much too young kids who aren't necessarily ready to handle it. And we kind of twist their values and make them really cynical at a very young age that there's some pretty pure kids who just want to play and they wanna bust your ass in Africa in Europe, and they're coming to take jobs away, if we don't better, and I think USA basketball has done a good job where they've gotten involved in. But, but Africa's to me is just you said, it's another avenue in the NBA where you're getting high character hard playing, and we are seeing some physical we Jaanus grew up in Greece. But his family's from Africa Niger, Nigeria and while Greece certainly claims them and he'll play for their national team. He is not a traditional Greek kid heating, grow up there. And so, you know Nigeria can claim his talent, and who he is. And so, I. I think you're right. I think that pipeline. And you see it, you're you coach with Ugandan national team, I think you're leaving right after the draft. Right. That's your annual trip back. So I'll be going to Uganda for, for ten days and we have an afro basket qualifier tournament out there just got former seventy sixer Brandon Davies playing with us, so he just landed the other day. And then I'll be doing the WB and Senegal as well. So yeah, I'm looking at all the top international names all the kids in Europe. Most of them have African roots. You know, do Moya he's French, but he's born in Guinea, one of the best prospects in all of Europe. Victor Wenbin Yama. He's very young kid. But his dad is from Congo, you know, so I think when you can get kind of the physical attributes of these, these guys from Africa and then put them in the European use system at the right age, you get these tantalizing prospects and. You know, to your point about. Not being given too much at a young age. I think John Mirant is a really good example of that. The, you know the favorite phrase, I like to hear when I hear about a prospect is late bloomer, right? When you hear that, you know, like okay, this kid, he wasn't on, you know, ball his life when he was twelve and he wasn't given you know, like he wasn't this huge naming a young age. Right. And so I think you have a different mindset coming through in Gye didn't play for a huge AU team. You know he has chip on his shoulder. But yet still has this ridiculous conference about him. And I think he's a rare example, in the states of somebody who has this incredible talent. But yet still has this, this humility about him. You know, you, you mentioned late bloomers. I remember having this conversation with Donovan Mitchell, and he talked about sort of not being an Instagram player. Right. Not just posing for social media, but really going out and doing the work. A lot of guys you think you're just there to to pose, and listen, you and Jonathan Vanni. There's very few on the. Planet who see as much probably nobody sees more a combination of the grassroots in the United States. But then what you are able to see in Europe what you see in the African continent. You see in the basketball without borders around the world when you go to those events and you see the environment that the players are playing. Are you seeing something dramatically different state side versus most of overseas? I think the style of play is different. In terms of all, those guys at a young as pastoral shoot, right? Like the ball is moving side to side. There's a certain style of European play that you see over there. That's drilled into them out of young age. Whereas in the states, I think you have to credit the level of freedom that a lot of these guys get, you know, with their ability to play at isolation or play pick and roll or go get their own shot. You know, I think the environment is certainly different. You know you go to the use exterior paint championships. You're going to see a much different it's going to have a much different field. And maybe you IB L A you. But, you know, I do think that. The level does it gets dinged a little bit more than it should I, I like I was Addy. Why Bill for a few days over the past month in the change the shock to twenty four seconds. And these kids are all friends, right? And they want to beat each other like it's more competitive, I think than than it gets credit for, but they're certainly a difference in terms of the style of play. Very 'isolation heavy here where the ball is just whip inside decide in Europe. You shouldn't have to choose between overpriced, designer sunglasses and cheap shades that won't last you the summer.

Lonzo's younger brother class of two thousand twenty has bounced around a little bit from chino hills to high school in Ohio. Right. And then Lithuania with the family last year, and that odyssey. And now on his way to the Australian league where there's an opportunity for American players to kind of bypass the college system for a year until one and done. Get straightened out, and they could go right to the NBA. He announced on the jump today. Jonathan Tony reported on it. You know, he is your quintessential balls. Life video showman. Right. And he's been in this kind of this ball bubble that his existed of being characters and their own life streaming show. Right. And they're popular on the circuit gyms are full to watch them play. What kind of talent does this younger ball have what will he find his style of play? How is that going to be received in Australia? What does he need to get out of the spy going there for your he's a big time town? There's no doubt about that. He's grown. I saw him in late January Dayton, Ohio, and he's grown to about six seven, you know, his bodies filling out. He has Lonzo like basketball instincts. I mean his his feel for the game. His I q his vision, and he's actually a little bit more shifty than Lonzo was at the same age. But you know he has a lot of bad habits. He's never played in structure. He's never really been held accountable, right? So he's never had to defend. He's, he's never had to kind of play within a system and it's always just kind of been, you know, his show. And even when he went to Lithuania, right? Like that whole thing was kind of a set. Up job of all right. We're going to bring in this family. We're going to create this buzz, and we're going to film, our show and, and that's how we're going to run this. And I was actually at one of those practices. I was at a game and a practice in Lithuania. And I walk into this practice and there's just cameras everywhere, you know, like it's, it's these guys have those be the coach since big English lamelo 's just kind of looks lifeless. And then there's cameras in everyone's face. And I'm like, what is I've been to a lot of European practice was like this is this is not, you know, when people say, oh, he has experience playing overseas. Like that's not what this is you know and and Australia's a physical league. I mean he's going to be tested night in and night out, but I will say like from talent perspective. He's a top ten type of pick, you know, so I think teams more than ever are going to have to weigh, what can we make of this talent because he has? All this natural ability that's high level. Like he's more talented than Lonzo honestly, but Lonzo grew up before all this was all this in a much more traditional setting. So I think more than ever teams are going to have to weigh, you know, everything that comes along with drafting lamelo ball and really hone in on some of the bad habits that he has. Because like I said, he's really going to be tested in Australia. Lonzo was traded to the pelicans in the Anthony Davis deal. Is it a mistake to draw broad conclusions on who Lonzo ball is, is a pro how good he could be a produce still see an avenue for him to still be to justify that. Number two overall pick and be an elite point guard in the NBA. I do. And I fi- were a team you know, I don't know how much this factored into David Griffin. But if I if I were a team, I would have been had him on my Bilo list for the last couple of years just given the situa-. Nation in Los Angeles. All the hoopla around him like if you can take him out of that and just focus on who is Lonzo ball, the basketball player. It's hard to find many guys in the world with his combination of basketball, instincts and size and defensive versatility. Like I think when he's able to step away out of the whole LA scene, and just focus on basketball teams are people fans are going to start to realize, like, okay. This is what makes us, so special, then you put them next to a guy like Zion, and it's going to be transitioned break after transition break. I really do think that he's going to maybe not live up to that, number two status, but I wouldn't count him out as being a guy who eventually really figured this out, just because of his basketball, q, his instincts, and I think we're too quick to judge these kids. I really do and Brandon Ingram. I don't know that there was a greater advocate of him. Then you and you even after Ben Simmons had kinda got out of the gate faster and his. Career. I know you hadn't let go of the idea, you I'm not sure you still have that Brandon Ingram when it's all said and done may still close that gap that argument about one and two. And he gets obviously the opportunity to go. I think he really needed a new he didn't fit with LeBron. And, and I think certainly he had some stretches where he really showed that talented share and then came the blood clot loss for the season. I'm told he's really had a good recovery. Good rehab should be back on the court playing in July and, and more than ready for training camp. But your view of him remains still pretty optimistic. Yeah. I mean you can find me dead on the Ingram hill. Stuck on the island with with no boat to get to the mainland. I still believe in this kid. You know, I still think that he's going to end up being an all star in the NBA. I, I really truly believe that and I think New Orleans is the perfect place to kind of get that out of him. In terms of a coach, like Alvin gentry, who instills confidence in who kind of gives you the green light to play your game. You wanna get up and down and then from a personality fit. He's a quiet kid. You know, he's a quiet kid who goes about his business, and just loves hoop. You know and, and I don't think that he ever fit into what was going on in LA, and I think, you know, the whole. You know what they have going on in New Orleans, and being able to be more of kind of a primary ball handler at times with, you know, other pieces around him is going to be a really, really intriguing fit. And, you know, he's still young if his health checks out and, you know, he's able to stay on the floor. I don't I wouldn't be shocked. If in two three years, we're talking about him as an all-star. All right. Mike. We can't finish pre-draft podcasts without talking a little bit about Zion Williamson. But I think in the context of the impact he had on our j Barrett. At Duke last year. Some people can forget that before. I think really before that Candida trip that Duke went on in the preseason. I think it was in August or September early. And I'll never forget, Jay Bilas was there for us. I think it was maybe on ESPN. Plus we're doing all the games in j just started talking. I mean we all knew whose Zion Williamson was, and we knew. It was a big recruit for Duke. And we knew it was a one and done in a lottery pick. But to watch the way remember J started doing these reports from Canada. They was Montreal. And the way Jay doesn't gush Jay is very pragmatic. He's always got players in context of who's come before, because he studies it and I remembered, his J starting to really gush about Zion as if he was seeing something he had never seen before. And here he is, again, I think it was beginning college football season. He's up Canada. And that's when it started the conversation of remember, initially it was all maybe they'll be a competition for number one pick, because it's RJ Barrett. He's number one maybe zion's going to compete for that. And then before you knew it, he was a freight train had run, everybody over. But RJ Barrett was the presumptive number one overall pick. What was the impact? You think Zion had if RJ Barrett had gone to Kentucky would we be talking? About him differently than if he was at Duke if he just he hadn't played with Zion. Yeah, just think seeing a prospect like Zion every day. Who so unique? Right scouts or seeing him fan seem over and over and over again. And he just there's such a wow, factor to him and the explosiveness and the motor with what you plays with. And then you see RJ and you just say okay like zion's is freakish. Number one, talent RJ Barrett. He's a nice player, you know, whereas if he wasn't next to this potential superstar, I think you are talking about him, as you know, a potential number two type of pick RJ clearly accomplished so much at such a young age. Whether it was with the Canadian national team. I remember, you know, when he was seventeen years old and scored thirty eight on on USA to basically win goal that the United world championships, and I think Jonathan was. Was actually there. I mean, the kid is an absolute gamer. He's an alpha dog. He's gonna look way better with space in and shooting around him. And in a lucky said it wasn't really until two champions, classic that, you know, phony, and I are sitting there looking at each other and just watching Zion and all like, what, what is, and we had seen him since he was seventeen years old. Right. But he was kind of this Atta shape, you know, pudgy guy who always had some injuries you weren't really. Sure what he did. You know who I thought he was then I thought he was Rodney Rogers, Brighton four. That's who he reminded. Yup. Yup. Yup. Exact played at Wake Forest played in the NBA with the nets and few teams and, you know, under-sized six seven lefty, who had a good career, but never was in great shape. And, and then he just became something else. I never thought he was going to be able to make shots like that, either. Like he was pretty much a non shooter in high school. So then you see this. This wave of Zion Williamson something we've never seen before this perfect position. Let's player and then again, you're looking at RJ saying, okay, we've seen guys like RJ know, six seven two hundred ten pound lefty. You can play pick and roll and scored all three levels. So I do think that seeing those guys next to each other day in day out, kind of took away how effective and good of a player RJ was, I mean, twenty three eight and four at age eighteen I think speaks for itself. So like I've said all along the Knicks should they draft RG bear. They're getting a lot more than just a consolation prize. And to think to last thing with Zion and he is the counter to the argument that every top player would just be better off if they were didn't have to go to college for a year, if Zion Williamson had gone from high school to the NBA, he'd have just a normal rookie shoe deal as opposed to the monster. Stor deal. He will have at some point here and endorsements and that platform at Duke, and if he had gone to Kentucky your Carolina. I'm not saying it wasn't just do probably would have happened anywhere. But that year of college to market him for people to see him in games that were meaningful do the things you're talking about going to the gardens. Classic was in Chicago. And on those big stages college basketball did offer him that platform. And so, what was it worth financially for him hundreds of millions of dollars? That would not have been there. He was just another top ten recruit. He was he was not extraordinary to anybody. He was always unique. Right. He was always a freak athlete, and who had a little bit of feel for the game and a little bit of motor. But he just turned the corner in, in a huge way. And like you said, I think Duke and college basketball gave him that platform, he took full advantage and just kind of the. Final point on him. Like, I don't know if I've seen a better kid at the top of a draft, and, and like I call him a thankless superstar because he does all the little things. He's RJ. But one of our best friends, and he's okay with a RJ. You want to go get yours late in the game. Go do it like I'm gonna crash the offense glass. I'm going to create extra possessions, and that's why he's going to be so easy to play within the NBA like I've no concerns about any of these young guys from the Lakers coming in or or say they get some all star caliber player like he is a phenomenal kid who does all the little things. No question. Mike. It's going to be a fun few days here in New York. A lot of action between now and the draft Thursday night, man. It's always fun to sit and do this. We'll, we'll be talking plenty more draft. Plenty more ball this week. Appreciate it. Well, thanks for listening to this episode of the woods pod.

It's it's available wherever fine. PODCASTS are found And Yeah enjoy this this classic episode about Popcorn Low and and welcome to foodstuff. I'm Lauren Bulb and I am an areas and they were talking about popcorn popcorn. One of Annie's berry favorite things on the planet like she's just sitting. She sort of vibrating. Right now I know. Lauren recently gave me some popcorn. Have three bags and I ate all three bags like not even maybe two hour period I I realized after I left that day that like maybe I shouldn't have left you with that much microwave pop. I can't I can't resist. I probably mentioned popcorn at least once a day. I don't know how and I love it. Oh it's delicious. There's a place downstairs as really good popcorn. Oh Oh yeah yeah it's dangerous. I know every day I'm like I couldn't I couldn't go down. They could just spee. They're right now and I also recently just went into a movie theater to get the popcorn and the guy was like so which he's going to direct me to the theaters. Like oh no this. This is this is all. I'm leaving I just got my popcorn. That's all that's all I wanted. That aside We are currently recording this In in November and in around this time of year a lot of big movies come out Popcorn is a thing that movie theaters it is. And that is the thing that we will be talking about stories great yeah But also if you're like me maybe you just eat popcorn all-time movie or not I think about it all the time. We were not in either case popcorn. What is what is it? Well it's a type. Corn Kernel scientifically known as Zea. mays avert that wind dried and then exposed to heat. POPs Sousse into this lovely cloud like thing. There are about twenty five varieties of corn. That do this but the two that we use the most are rice popcorn. The colonel's kind of looked at rice and pro about corn. Guess what they look like Pearls Weird. Yeah so you've got the outside this hard hull and then outer Indo sperm we're surrounded the starchy white. Inner in industry term with an ideal moisture about thirteen point five percent the moisture is important because at around two hundred and twelve degrees Fahrenheit are one hundred degrees Celsius use the moisture turns this team until it causes the kernel to rip apart inside out like increasing in size by about twenty to forty times giving you popcorn. Handling and exposure to air can impact the moisture content. Which is why? You're advise the store colonels in an airtight container. If the package has been opened until you're ready ready to pop them That's because the steam alone will not make a popcorn. Kernel explode. Every successful. Kernel of popcorn is a tiny pressure. Cooker the hull holes in the moisture and the increasing heat up. Because you're not just eating the kernels two water's boiling point. You take them all the way up to a hundred and eighty degrees Celsius or for three hundred and fifty six degrees Fahrenheit. I'm being precise about this. Because this is the number this is the number at which the vast majority of popcorn kernels pop So pressure okay. Builds up inside the colonel all the way to a hundred and thirty five pounds per square inch which is by the way about twice as much pressure as there is inside of a bottle of champagne pain or semi truck tire champagne reference yes The pressure overwhelms the structural integrity of the hull. And the whole thing bursts. I if you mess with the whole you'll wind up with you. Don't WANNA dead. You don't want it it's a milk dud But why does the colonel GAW Fluffy the trapped steam. I'm basically gelatin. Is is the content of the colonel So when the whole bursts and the contents spill out air is forced into that Matrix of proteins and than starches creating a foam that rapidly cools into that solid fluff in timing. Is Key here. A heating popcorn too quickly doesn't give the insides time to gelatin is but but heating too slowly will make the tip of the Colonel Soft Allowing steam to leak out instead of building up the distinctive noise the popcorn makes when it pops was only figured out for for certain in two thousand fifteen when researchers out of France used high speed imaging and audio recordings to take a closer look at popcorn. it's the noise of water. Water vapor escaping rapidly amplified by the cavity. That it's leaving inside the kernel. They also found that the colonel's jump when they pop because the first leg League of expanding starch that escapes from the Hull And hits the PAN or the bag. We'll I compress from the change in pressure and then expand rapidly and this action works. Looks like a springer or like or like your leg vaulting the colonel into the air the the researchers developed this imaging equipment not to study popcorn but rather to studied lead. He physical dynamics of living plants. Like how trees break during storms. They bent towards popcorn to give physics teachers fun way to demonstrate difficult principles to their students. They told the Elliott Times this literally gives an appetite for science. That's excellent And it is a very popular snack. Food it at the movies like we mentioned but also more generally when I was in through it was served before a lot of my meals like chips. They Popcorn and twenty sixteen people purchased one billion one hundred forty five million two hundred sixty two thousand twenty nine pounds of popcorn and Americans eat about thirteen billion courts a year which comes out to forty two courts a person I bet a lot of. That's being most of the world's popcorn has grown in the American Midwest and the best time for sales is in the fall Is the official state snack of Illinois. State snacks Still understand it. He's got a lot to learn lauren. The popcorn industry she comes with its own set of fun terminology. Oh yeah the colonel's called the flake pop ability or I two percent amount of popped kernels the the two basic popcorn shapes our butterfly and mushroom mushroom is sturdier and more often used in candy while butterfly's bigger and more pleasing to the eye. So when you get street late at popcorn it's probably butterfly. Une Pop popcorn or called. Spinsters should be called BACHELORETTES. Right right yeah. And a quality popcorn orne should yield less than two percent of those and who could forget the bridesmaids or the kernels. That partially pop well. I didn't know that we were GONNA run it into such like weirdly gendered. I know terminology and the popcorn episode. It's everywhere we can make we. We can make everything weird. That's great and Uh Hey that's a great transition to go to a break for word from one of our lovely and not weird sponsors in today's episode is brought to you by feed me a podcast exploring the stories behind the story of food now in its second season. Feed me up anecdotes. How To's family food secrets recipe pro tips and the business side of food? There's also insight from some perhaps unexpected guests including athletes. It's ranchers bloggers and celebrities. No matter who's on the show or what topics come up. It all comes down to food how we make it why we love it. And how food connects us. All you can listen undefeated me on the IHEART or wherever you get your podcasts. And we're back. Thank you sponsor okay. So here's where we get into the history of popcorn which is not going to be a history of corn? No too much way too much. We'll come back on a later date or it. The type of maize that gives us popcorn was domesticated around five thousand BC E in central and South America Researchers think that all early corns might have been popcorn. Non Popping varieties would really be developed later through cultivation. And it wasn't that folks didn't like popcorn and we're trying to cultivate away from it. It's it's just the popcorn is generally inedible. When it's raw due to the thickness and hardness of the hull so you'd have to either grind it into flour or poppet in order to make some use out of it? Ancient corn cobs found on proves northern Costa. Just that people have been eating popcorn for over or six thousand seven hundred years. They most likely would wrap the corn and police it on Coles or roasted in a fire and it wasn't something they would have enjoyed frequently frequently right. The evidence seems to say that it was either a delicacy or just a occasional edition diet Colonels and popcorn discovered covered by Herbert Dick and Earl Smith in nineteen forty eight and a cave called the bat cave in New Mexico. Wait Cave No. Oh are we sure sure that back here still probably pretty interesting police. Oh yeah the colonels and popcorn born discovered there were carbon dated to five thousand six hundred years old. The colonels were in such good condition they could still pop. Didn't pop them. They studied them but they could have popped them home. Man Dan Yeah Circle Up to see Mexico. Funeral Urns with images of amazed God show him sporting a headdress decorated with popcorn Signs of popcorn pup all over central and South America over the next centuries especially prevalent in Mexico Peru and Senate Guatemala the web low and Iroquois for sure consume popcorn. French explorers wrote that the Iroquois placed colonels channels in pots filled with hot sand to pop them. I love all these like in innovation ways to find pop popcorn. According to a couple of historians some native American can tribes believed each popcorn kernel house peaceful spirits. Well they were peaceful until he asserted heating out their house which made them shake the kernels with increasing anger until the best out leaving a cloud of steam in their week. I think I read somewhere. I don't believe this is true but I read that like when you say someone's steaming with anger. Oh that's that's what it's about and that brings us to the early sixteenth century. When popcorn was a particular significance to the ticks talking about the aspects again apart apart from snacking on it they used popcorn as decoration as embellishments for ceremonies ornamental decoration on statues of their Gods Bernard Dino Disa- goon soon wrote in his observations of popcorns importance to the Aztecs? Quote and also a number of young women danced having so vowed a popcorn. Dance as thickest. Carr's tassels of maize were there popcorn. Garland's yeah popcorn dance. Another in account by a Spanish observer of Aztec ceremony described thusly these scattered before him parched corn called monoclonal kind of corn which burst when parched and discloses its contents and makes itself look like a very white flower. They Said said these were hailstones given to the God of water yet. And there's even a word in the Aztec language for the sound of several colonels popping at the same time Toca Toca speaking of the Spanish after Cortez invaded the Aztec Empire in fifteen nineteen one of the spoils he spread around the world with popcorn and slowly people started needed to figure out how it worked Felix desirer encountered popcorn during his exploration of Paraguay writing boiled and fat or oil. The grains burst I without becoming detached and their results superb. UK Fit to adorn ladies hair at night without anyone knowing what it was. I've often eaten these burst grains and found them very very good. Well wow what. Words of praise as colonists arrived to the new world. The native Americans introduced them to popcorn snack. They adopted as their own the colonists and also sometimes added milk and sugar to a sort of popcorn. Cereal Yeah I I air popped Breakfast cereal yeah and also also oh sometimes they would pop it with molasses to make something kind of like today's kettle corn guests who enjoyed that whole popcorn as has a serial thing years later one John Harvey Kellogg that Kello approved of something. He did heck and his wife Villa. She called it an excellent food and John Lott popcorn as quote easily digestible to the highest degree. Wholesome presenting the grain in its it's entirety and hint superior to many denatured breakfast foods which are found in the market? Yeah yeah there you go Kellogg Always popping Do Okay by the eighteen twenties popcorn kernels being sold under the name. Pearl or non Perr Yell never know another pronounced for sure but it's the same word used for sprinkles in the eastern US and eighteen. Forty eight. John Russell Bartlett included popcorn in his dictionary of americanisms. Despite being a popular snack in the colonies they found it not only tasty but entertaining he had to get your entertainment in the nineteenth century. People didn't really have a great way pop popcorn. They tried all kinds of things though including during colonels and hot into kettles of hot lard or butter or into these wire boxes attached to to a long wooden handle. And then you'd stick them over a fire. That was the most popular way enter. Charles critters of Chicago sees of Chicago go see creators and company. That's a lot of CS and 1893. Craters showed up to Chicago's world. Columbian Exposition with General BS. I don't know if you could hear that. But it was their mobile popcorn machine. Scientific American described it like this the apparatus which is light and strong and weighing saying but four hundred or five hundred pounds can be drawn readily by boy are by small pony to any Picnic Ground Fair political rally etc and too many other other places where a good business could be done for a day or two critters was the owner of a candy store and he got the idea for the mobile popcorn machine after working on improving his peanut roasting machine both powered by steam and by nineteen hundred. He brought horsedrawn popcorn wagons to the And in cracker. Jack's cracker Jack's which is for those of you don't know it's the snack A mix of molasses covered popcorn peanuts. It debuted in the eighteen nineties That name by the way probably comes from the popular sling at the time meaning. first-rate excellent crackerjack crackerjack. Yeah in the song. Take me out to the ballgame blind. Buy Me some peanuts and cracker jacks. I came out in nineteen eight and we still seeing this at baseball games in the US. Yeah what are you seeing in baseball games and other countries let us know exactly I. I had that thought as its as I was saying. The American Popcorn Company was founded by coit Smith and Sioux City Iowa in nineteen fourteen and they released America's first Popcorn Brandt rant jolly time jolly time jolly time. They started selling it in Kansas in nineteen twenty five with the ambitious slogan guaranteed to pop. Oh yeah that's not what it was at the time really. It really wasn't due to its low price relative abundance and ease preparation popcorn experienced bumps during times the hardship like the Great Depression and World War Two in fact it was one of the few businesses that thrived during the Great Depression with stories. Like this one one an Oklahoma banker newly out of a job after his bank clues shop bought a popcorn machine and started selling it outside of a theater and from that alone he made enough money to buy back the three farms he'd lost in two years. That's kind of stunning. Yeah and this all ties into how popcorn became like the ultimate movie movie theater snack right. So how did that happen. Well at first movie theaters really turned up their noses at the idea. They were not excited about it. They didn't want people getting popcorn. All over there beautiful auditoriums. They wanted it to be a place for the elite checking all those rich movie goers and they didn't want the loud munching popcorn are the unsightly trash it would generate impeding that in nineteen twenty seven though the talkies or movies with sound start greasing theater screens which meant a wider audience since viewers no longer needed to be literate to enjoy film and by Nineteen thirty nine hundred million people a week. We're going to the movies. This theater owners were thinking of ways to capitalize on this and with the introduction of sound selling. Snacks didn't sound like such a terrible idea anymore. But still the potential for mess really concern them them sometimes. Hawkers would go around the theater owners walking down the aisle selling popcorn however the great depression depression changed that people could still afford to go to the movies and they could also afford a five to ten cent bag of popcorn. You know one of those small luxuries like lips rise and thing like exactly For the theater owners they could get years of popcorn from a ten dollar bag. Colonels Street vendors their own popcorn carts camped outside of theaters to sell bags. Axes patrons within this is one of my favorite facts. That episode this practice was so rampant. Movie theaters had signs that requested. Movie Goers check their popcorn wish they're code. What check your popcorn if there was a sign up now like there's been times like popcorn and my I got to check my popcorn The time most movie theaters didn't have the ventilation to house popcorn machines but they couldn't ignore the sirens call of popcorn prophets as as more and more of their customers walked in with bags of stuff so they leased what they called lobby privileges to vendors charging them a daily fee to sell popcorn in the lobby. This arrangement saved a good chunk of theaters from going under the during the Great Depression. That didn't stop theater owners for looking for ways to get rid of the vendors and making their own popcorn and massively increasing their profits one example of how lucrative the popcorn business could be in theaters. Dallas Dallas movie theater chain invested in Machines for eighty of their theaters but in five movie houses. They consider their best the abstained believing it would tarnish their fancy pants reputation. Tation the ones without the pop machines almost went under in the next two years while the theaters with the popcorn machine saw their profits shoot way up movie theaters realizes popcorn porn thing and snacks and general where the moneywise. It's so popcorn. Basically like made the movie industry possible. Yeah there so tied together This growth couldn't be sustained however and theatre saw steady decrease in profits in the fifties and sixties and what was to blame the television more and more Americans were staying at home and watching the Boob tube and the competent their own home at their home in their home and they were doing this rather than going out to the movies and this meant trouble for popcorn two because it wasn't easy to make it at home yeah yes in Nineteen fifty-three easy pop appeared in our grocery store shelves. All you had to do with place the covered aluminum pie plate looking thing over heat source for one minute. The aluminum foil covering kind of blew out and vote La popcorn a little later. They changed their name to recognize Jiffy pop and this always makes me think of the movie scream that opening opening scene. Yeah Poor Drew Barrymore poetry. I wanted to put in here. One of the notes that I found while I was was researching Food Timeline dot. Org has this clip from a nineteen sixty two issue of Congo Daily Tribune which describes a package of this one brand of popcorn according TV time that included a feed bag for kids to where it was like a plastic apron with big pocket across the front. So I guess ask. You could carry your popcorn around with you. I mean I would. The writer was suggesting a second us for the apron is like trick or treating accessory feedback very it you know it sounds Lovely and I'm sure you're you're the coolest kid on the street if you went jigger trading aware but you've got your popcorn and one pocket yeah candy and the other. I mean clearly to organize these. Yeah you've got to. Oh but that's a good. That's a good you know. Keep your self sustained for the entire trick or treating. You could last a lot longer. Yeah meanwhile farmers and food scientists were busy you working on growing the the least wasteful best popping popcorn possible The first commercial popcorn hybrid was released in nineteen thirty four m the USDA's Bureau of Plant Industry Got Pretty heavily involved to help out between the nineteen fifties and today agricultural research would reduce the rate of UN popped kernels by I seventy five percent. Wow by the nineteen seventies more and more American households owned a microwave. And as you might guess this is a big deal for in-home on popcorn making an eating orval redden pucker that reading Becker. Yup that run blocker This is a family of farmers that survived through the Great Depression. Thanks to popcorn. They released their namesake. Popcorn in nineteen. Seventy by nineteen eighty-one microwave. Popcorn was commercially. Available with General Mills snagging the first patent the microwave popcorn bag. The Association of movies and Popcorn didn't go away once it became easier and a lot more common to make popcorn at home. No way if you look at the packaging of a lot of microwave popcorn they might have things like film strips on them or they might be called movie theater popcorn or they might advertise directly with movies or in commercials or promotional images for things like net flicks the viewers in these things are often eating popcorn as they watch. Whatever they're watching not only that this relationship has changed the type of popcorn? We're more likely lead to eat. What free movies? A majority of popcorn sold came from a variety of white corn but those sneaky movie vendors like the yellow variety because it was bigger when pop meaning. You got a lot more volume for less money. And since it was yellow customers thought it was covered in butter advertising and worth more the whole well yeah. It reached the point where a lot of people wouldn't buy white popcorn in stores because they didn't think it would taste as good as movie theater popcorn. How and that persists to this day? Ten percent of commercially grown popcorn is the white variety of the rest. Is that yellow the yellow flavor. It's in your brain rain home my goodness to this day. Popcorn and other concessions are the primary drivers for profit for movie theaters with an estimated prophet of eighty five percent. Forty six six percent of total theatre. Prophet how all from off from the concessions a lot of which is popcorn. All right so that was our popcorn history. We we do have some popcorn science for you.

And using the Promo Code Saver to let them know that we sent you and we're back thank you sponsors so nutrient wise. Popcorn is a whole grain. And it's thirty calories per cup for Airports and thirty five for oil popped but this is the home. It's tough important not the movie theater baseball game variety different. Yeah yeah a word on that in a second but but you know popcorn being grain is mostly low. Sugar carbohydrates with a little bit of fiber plus about ten percent each fats in proteins. Makeup wise Those fats by the way are the good fats. It's not gonNA fill you up for very long but it is certainly not the worst thing for you Nutritionists tend to like it because the volume and the crunch can make it feel more satisfying than similar snacks. That have higher caloric punches. Of course what you do with your popcorn once it's popped does make a huge each difference if you're using it mostly as vehicle for Sultan butter. You're going to be eating a lot of salt and butter. Yeah yeah that's not a particularly bad thing as long as you don't have a condition that makes it advisable to to avoid salt if you're in good health salt is basically fine as long as you remember to hydrate and As long as you're using real butter which is a high calorie food but totally early fine in moderation yeah But hey speaking of real butter yeah since we talked about movie theaters popcorn so much We thought we should briefly talk about the yellow sledged called in heavy quotes. Butter butter offered as a popcorn topping and movie theaters. Okay so I that will help thing This doesn't hold true for popcorn. You get the movie theaters because it's usually popped in coconut oil and then it's heavily really salted and often topped with butter for a medium bucket of Popcorn which holds about twenty cups. You're looking at twelve hundred calories sixty grams of saturated fats and nine hundred eighty milligrams of sodium. That's that's a bunch. Yeah for reference. The recommended daily value of saturated fats for the average adult is twenty four grams. A third of that or that. I see that that second thing I said right and that butter. It's actually a mixture of flavor call and butter flavored topping. Yep Butter flavored topping. Slavery call is a fine salt. That's that's been colored yellow to get popcorn. The illusion of being coated with butter the butter flavored topping is a combination of things like Beta carotene soybean oil and of course buttery flavoring. It's some type of chemical that mimics butter flavor. And it's twenty more calories per tablespoon than real butter Yeah Hyde and that's you know the different types of fats interact with your body differently It's generally best to avoid anything that's labeled as containing transfats or partially Ashley hydrogenated oils which is what this stuff is made of instead of better? Yeah because shelf stable. We talked about that and also about Artificial butter flavoring a little bit in our butter episodes of which there are two. We had a lot to say about better basically there are two compounds. That make butter taste like butter. Thi- subtle and as tone in old fashioned cultured butter. These compounds are excreted by friendly lactic. Acid bacteria during the process excessive turning cream into butter. But if you want to add butter flavoring to less expensive noncolored butter or in the case of movie theater butter under some kind of vegetable oil. You've got a couple of options You can either farm a whole bunch of bacteria or yeast and then collect that data settle and acetone and Those are called natural butter flavorings or You can synthesize those molecules or others that will create similar flavor experience like a settle appropriate in a lab thus producing what's called artificial butter flavoring and You may have heard about artificial butter flavoring especially really in microwave popcorn causing health problems. That is a real thing but the story Kinda got sensationalized in the press. A factory workers who breathe in like a whole lot of dia settle do have an increased risk of this one particular type of lung disease and there was this one guy who was popping two to three bags per day every day for a whole bunch of years who successfully sued a lot of Microwave popcorn producers after contracting this disease it's called popcorn lung which which sounds adorable but it's not and there is no risk in in breathing in the amounts that you'd realize from popping bag of popcorn in your microwave like every now and then Like consider sticking with the types of microwave popcorn that feature little to no flavoring at whatever flavorings you want after it's popped also you make sure your kitchen is well ventilated. If you're worried about this kind of thing I mean that's a good tip all around well-ventilated kitchens are a cook's friend. Yeah definitely also concerning microwave popcorn. Well it gives me cancer who I hope not okay. Well that's sort of my short answer. Yeah it's Jesus hope not That the long answer okay. The long answer is that for many years a one of the materials that the food industry used a whole lot of wrappings was Ho. I did this to myself. perfluorooctane sulfonate also known as PFOS because it's so much easier to say. PFOS is great because it prevents oils from leaking out through paper products. It's also terrible because it can leach into your food and must with your hormones in contribute to thyroid disease and various cancers oof. Yeah much of the food. Industry voluntarily voluntarily started phasing out. PFOS starting around twenty eleven in light of all of this medical research however sort of similar stuff like a poly Fluoro- alkyl substances P. F. A. S.'s are still used and can also leak into food and have been associated with some negative health effects the FDA Says that they are safe at the levels at which they are used but some researchers are still calling for more work to be done again. The the real danger here is to folks who work in manufacturing and get exposed to like huge amounts of these chemicals. But if you're concerned about this Just pop your popcorn the old fashioned way not in a microwave but honest top. That's my preferred way. Yeah pretty delicious. That way too And I I Wrote wrote microwave popcorn button question. Question question question exclamation point exclamation point. It's important and then just left Lauren. To okay all right so you've probably seen onto microwave a microwave popcorn button Yeah Unless microwaves graves this is just a timer and like maybe power setting that may or may not help you. Avoid burning the holy heck out of your popcorn However in the incredible future your microwave might be able to listen to your popcorn to help you out ooh in two thousand fourteen whirlpool released microwave? That could monitor the time between in Colonel Tops and it would automatically shut off when that length hit hit that length of time hit it hit a certain length. Yeah most most brands of my group popcorn born in the meanwhile recommend just doing that the old fashioned way with your ears. Let's always cooked up on the instructions. We're back so it's like do not use a button what is it for. What are you thinking silly you and popcorn was a I think the I can't remember his name? It was a general who helps Invent the microwave popcorn and a lot of his tests. Wow Oh oh yeah and he. I think he was the one that they should be about Gordon Anyway for World War Two they were working on this. Wow that's starting at a very high level that's like yeah you're just diving right in. Okay yeah all right. So that's science segment. Yeah which brings us to some random slash culture stuff like popcorn balls sucker involves. I have never done this. Have you done this learn Not Pursed I've received popcorn cornball view as a gift from family members who made themselves okay well this is a practice that started in the nineteenth century and it was all the rage into the early twentieth. Century View. Couldn't guess from the name it's like balls popcorn. Yeah yeah they're usually Lightly sweetened with sugar molasses of some kind and kind of it's it's all SORTA SORTA into into this sort of ball shape That sounds ball. Shit The first known written recipe appeared in a eighteen. Sixty one cookbook. Popcorn a popular holiday decoration largely due to its cheapness and also it's color. This was especially especially true around Christmas. It was also a fairly common gift from this sprung up. A whole industry of popcorn bombmakers nearly every cookbook had at least one popcorn ball recipe with the dawn of the new century and Victorian families use them as decoration so it had a very brief but very intense popularity. Yeah and there's such a fun story about how the first popcorn ball was made. This is like a truly tall tale kind of thing. Yes yes it's excellent okay So the story comes to us from the corn husker state of Nebraska where another big crop is sorghum. There there was one summer during the mid eighteen hundreds that was so wet and so hot that the rain combined with the sorghum to make syrup that drained off to a nearby cornfield field on that field the heat caused the colonels to dry out and pop and then a tornado came through. Oh yes out of all of this weather chaos ask. The farmer found a one hundred foot mountain. Thirty point five meters a popcorn balls lucky but no one other ways grasshoppers grasshopper's eight all of them to varying the proof. Oh yeah what a day. But the secret of the popcorn ball was revealed to him was and some some grasshoppers grasshoppers eat popcorn balls anyway. I'm sure they'll eat just about anything right. Yeah according to the Twenty Twenty fifteen edition of the Guinness Book of World Records. The largest popcorn ball ever created comes US via the twenty Thirteen Indiana state fair and this behemoth humider was eight feet in diameter two point five meters and weighed six thousand five hundred ten pound goodness also this was probably a Duh to everyone else but I had no idea Guinness period by the Guinness Book of Records and I freaked out a little bit about it. I think any texted me or something. or maybe there's an email I don't know. Oh yeah it was just like it was just the surprise face Emoji like fifteen times should've known And aside popcorn popcorn the game both classroom and trampoline. I've never heard what what does the popcorn game watch. Popcorn in in classroom room is when Usually like if you're reading something allowed in class You pop to someone. So you're reading and they won't be done it's popcorn And it was annoying because there was always that one kid that read like one sentence and then popcorn over to you anyway and on the trampoline. It's when you like you wrap your arms around your knees and you make yourself until like a colonel like a small tiny little ball as much as you can and then your friends try to make your come over and you must open into popcorn. That's great yeah. It only slightly hazardous lately. So that's popcorn popcorn man I've got. I'm going to have to get some popcorn and I'm not upset about it at all. Yeah no this is. This is one of those food cravings that I think is totally. Okay I yeah I think so. And that brings us to the end of this classic I'm I'm curious if anybody makes popcorn balls which came up in a recent and Arcane episode. I'd love to hear about that. Yeah I WANNA live through. Show you the pictures. Tell me about your process process. If you're seeing a bunch of movies this season we hope that You've got some popcorn popcorn and future.

Talkin' The Draft: USC DT Marlon Tuipulotu

"From labra doodles to grow nuts the world of hybrid so today businesses are taking a smarter hybrid cloud approach using the tools platform and expertise of ibm. The world is going hybrid with ibm visit. Ibm dot com slash hybrid cloud. So guys is the draft. Podcast i'm your host connor livesey job on my co host tonight taught and miller. We're joined by very special guests as marlin toy. Pollux is on the show. Today excited to have him on usc attack. What's up man. how are you. I'm doing well how you guys doing. We're hanging in there in virginia dalton's in dallas and we've been dealing with a lot of snow and ice here recently so i wanted to start where. Where are you currently training net. What state are you in. What are you. What are you been working on. I'm areas owner. I now i'm training at a phoenix. You're staying to. Yes you'll have to deal with any of it right right. I'm in this nunnery now. Lucky lucky lucky. Have you spent much time in arizona in the past or or how you like it out there i love this is basically like kelly saw Basically no difference on joining you. You said you would ex- right cool so own is yes on the twenty fourth of march. Okay cool so so we always ask question. The combine is actually happening. Obviously not having this year. What do you guys kinda working on right now. I know a lot of time is spent on drills get forty times right getting all that stuff stray but i know you guys do a lot of positional work. You have defense coaches in there as well working on technique. You know all that stuff. What have you been spending a lot of your time working on this. Offseason just got back from the senior bowl. We'll get into all that later but as far as training at exodus which you're kind of game plan been there. Yeah i mean basically what you said. It's been training for combine. I mean just trying to get ready. Get our our forty times writer. Bench missed numbers. Good and is working with our position cochin. Luckily we've been having a Granted jordan on you guys know about him. But he's based out of houston but he becoming up in admin training us as a defense online. That's been great. I love will always love essence question because you have edge rusher zone you have interior guys on who obsolete working on hand. Were the working on. Footwork is pass. Rushers run defenders What's been the the coolest thing that you've been working on. Maybe something that. You didn't really do a lot at usc that they're kind of teaching you to get ready for the the drills then the nfl right so like a a big thing about me was just like ashish brandon jordan just like continuing to help me become better pash. I felt like that's meant as been a lot of health. Remigius trying to take the correct steps using likes a good moves that a congressional joining me teaching so is just been a great experience for and and with that is there something specifically that you really wanted to improve when it comes to your pass rusher so just generally just in general but like For me personally just trying to get like a like a finesse. Move down for me. So we've been learning with the with. The coach jordan was basically like the double ashli and across shop. So just been working on those that some that. I've been trying to trying to get down to put it into my arsenic. So is there anyone in the nfl that you kind of always say model your game and i know a lot of guys like i don't wanna model game after anybody wanna be myself but like who's the guy you kinda watched and you're like me i'm like i see myself playing like him. I can see myself being able to kind of develop into the same player. He is maybe pass rush. Move stuff like that. Who somebody you pay attention to and study a lot. I'm there's like two layers that really try to just wash their game. In a by china studying is drawn pay not a washington football team in things. See i love those answers because you always get like. Oh it'd be like aaron donald you know like and of course. I'm sure you love him watching but i'll like deron. Pain was a of mine coming on the draft a few years ago at alabama on a lot of people were like. It's funny you say that. Because kind of like like underrated dude. Like people were like. They liked him. They didn't talk about in a lot. Now he's just such a stud with washington. Just how good he is against the run and then the pressure he can provide from that interior. Definitely can see that being a good kind of comparison for you. Right yeah best. That's the reason why. why washington like just in alabama. Just a against runny was at alabama and just seeing his like his Regression as a passion leaders melanin stuff so hopefully china do in the future. And i like that. You brought up to kind of different players at the end of the day because durant paying a little bit bigger a little bit. You know more physical against the run in the gino atkins obviously one of the best pass rushing three techniques that we've seen really long time. Where do you see your role being at the next level because we kinda soul you play a little bit on the outside a little bit more in in twenty eighteen and twenty nineteen and then you play the lots shaded off the center in twenty twenty First of all. What weight were you playing at this year And you know where do you see yourself playing at the next level. Okay yeah so. This past clan around the auto spoke between three zero five three hundred and then just being around that way Like i felt like versatile enough to play the three tech even ause mainly physicians but a wherever wherever team Like peace me out. I'll be happy to do. Is is three hundred right about like where you're comfortable weight is or I mean like between three hundred three ten like around right now like three zero seven zero eight. So i'm not still a comfortable enough to move around and still be explosivea. He's like that so early. Because you I know when you know on the size of the usc abby listed. I think you're listed at like six one. Two six one three t they get you at three zero five six three three zero five and i think the good thing you told me you were only playing at around three hundred like i thought you were probably playing it. Like three ten three fifteen like you play explosive but you play a lot stronger and a lot bigger than that you know. Three hundred pounds would suggest which is obviously good. 'cause if you can hold up against the double teams you can play. You played the knows a ton at usc so the ability to play. Hold up against the run. Eat double team stuff like that. It only three hundred pounds. That's just gonna make your pass. Russian explosion even more impressive. So that's awesome naiad s like washing gino atkins. Just because i feel like we kind of have the same measurable right in washington how he plays like how how much selena has in his name like. That's something i try to that. I take pride in him. I gave myself so. It's funny because i feel like a lot of fans i mean. Even a lot of people in like analysis in general they think like under three fifteen euro three tech and then over three fifteen year nose tackle. And i'm like dude. There's some really good like guys that play that knows who are three hundred and fifty three hundred and twenty five pounds. You don't have to be three hundred forty pounds nowadays to be able play inside. Eat those blocks. Yeah i mean like. I said it. It really turned it on your tape and twenty twenty twenty nineteen. You see a guy. Like i said that that plays much bigger than three hundred pounds. So i think that's. That's great that you can keep that bursts of an employee with that much power at three hundred pound three hundred ten pound limit. My presented is trying to Give my technique. Obviously i got more stuff to do. But i think technique is like a big kinda offer that technique. The one thing that i noticed a lot watching your tape was your ability to This dissect get rid of blocks super early in the process. I feel like when. I watch a lot of defensive tackles. There's they try to force it late and then they're not able to make plays kind of outside of their frame. I feel like you're you have some really good range in the short area. Is that something that you like. Really focus on trying to get off of it early and then with that. What is your favorite way Because that's all you get rid of blocks a couple of different ways. Is there a certain go to that. You have for getting rid of blocks in the run game or is it just kind of feel for the certain play where i saw first of all whatever close at. Usc was teaching me so just trying to play my blocks like the correct way and just trying to get off his violent as possible. So whether that's a are more with some. I like to do it what we were taught at. Usc was made it the armour or just trying to get off the block the quickness and things like that you should a snatch polo at usc to to get home is a pass rusher some at the senior bowl walls. That's something you developed like later in your career at usc or is it something that you've always gonna happen. Your your tool belt. I mean Just planned those like again in the double team off the on something that i just try to that. Learn from my coaches and just trying to develop a mock game like obviously have more work to do her. Just a yeah. That's pretty much what i could do. Fan Mainly like to add just always get in chair. I wanna do more moves. Budget got a patient in a so. Obviously you were at the senior bowl here recently I know that was kind of your first dip into the whole. Nfl exposure of with coaching staffs agents a scouts. Everything is probably roland for you but obviously you had a big thank. You did a really great job of answering a lot of questions you know. Playing multiple roles plan three techno steak. He did a lot of different things. There Kids kinda review that we take us down the whole week for from where started how it ended from The progressions you humane some things you learned that week right So men it was at thought it was up those a solid week just to be able to learn just competing against the best Seniors in the cotton college football. So i just going in there and just trying to show my abilities in at the same time dish. What you said like showing these at a like that. I needed to work are like basically questions i guess. I'm just trying to prove them wrong. I guess Continued to show. Like what i what i was capable to do like like being under the table. Evidence still being able to show my power in the hands. Like i was able to do that throughout the weekend at alabama mobile so on on top of that With the meetings with the coaches and stuff like that meeting with teams we used to go down year. We weren't down this year for obvious reasons with those obvious regions you know. What was the experience like meeting with teams. Was it olive resume. Because like we're used to seeing coaches grab dudes and take him out to dinner and that's how they get it done but obviously that wasn't probably allowed this year. Uh so what would the team meetings in the off time when you weren't at for actress. Yes so we were in group so basically like each team. So i was on the american team. And then we'd have a we met with all with thirty teams because the rams went there so we met with with the rams yet and there was like that big big screening screaming that Like that Plastic so like we just like each each have fifteen minutes. Each team is being able to ask a question these like that. Then we're able to meet with other teams were seen. I don't know if you're able to touch on it or dive into it anymore. But like is there any meetings with those teams. It might stood out as like. Oh i felt like that went. You know really good. They seem to be very interested. Was only like meetings with those scouts or anything that really stood out to you yeah free. I thought the coats seahawks will. The bears were thought that went will the builders was good like everyone is actually pretty much asking the same questions. Some of those teams like felt. Like i felt like connection cool cool. Yeah good deal and again like don said like normally there in. It's so hectic. Because we're thank. You guys stayed in the same hotel so normally there's like all the team scouts and then there's us you're just like are annoying. The crap out of people bought the teams are trying to annoy the crap out of you guys. So it's like it's always so insane like we just sit around the donut table like all right. Let's go talk to him and him and him go in the film rush film and it's like it's i mean it's cool the first time you go like media member i mean obviously the players completely different for the first time you media members are just like wide. I'd like so cool but sure it was a lot different this year. obviously didn't make a down. We wish we could have. But i'm sure it was a lot different and probably a lot less stressful on you guys. Because you didn't have idiots like me and trying to talk to the whole time thia it sound different like we have more downtime to just move rest up no telegu treatment so a lot less than what you got him used to with that. Windy you guys get the playbook and then you know on the offensive side of the ball. We always kind of talk to them. About what the the concepts. They're going to be running depending on. What the teams are. But it's pretty dumb down defensively correct not blitzing or anything like that. So is it just a lot of just solid technique or were you guys one capping or two capping For the american team. Did you guys do a little bit of both where they try to look at both or how does that go all right. So we got our got. Our platelets That monday i. I believe monday or tuesday of and yeah we just basically had like based the fence like no no pressure audited. Plan like a format with A one gap defense. So like no sensing. You're done so pretty much is based defense trying to beat the garden front of you pretty much. What's that like with when you're not able to really there's no diversion. There's no no magic to what you're doing defensively. Does it take a little bit more. Pride when it's just you know the guy in front of you and you're going or do you like to be a little bit deceptive and run stunts and stuff. I mean like. I felt like that was pretty much like what they're trying to do to us. Just show us like it like just. Here's our base deficient. Go show which you can do pretty much. So i think there i guess that's probably like probably like testers And audio trying to hurt the quarterback or anything so rigid smart. There is a few reps for you on a seventy seven in an era team drills where you could have a couple of sacks and its that's gotta be so hard you get that clean shot at a quarterback you're like well can hit them so and i know watching some of the team drill film. I was like there's a sack and it was like it's always funny to see you guys be like oh crap making him yes. It's basically like a regular practice at school right kind. Keep the quarterback statement or is making smart decisions. When you're gonna get your teammates. Sure the next question i had. So obviously there is a I don't know how the players kind of see this is guys who evaluate the draft. Then do a lot of analysis on it. The offense lion group issues fantastic tackles guards really good centers and there was a ton of those top guys in mobile Was there any matchup stood out. You know from you that you're like man. I can really play like he's going to be a good player in the league. And then the flip side of it. I was going to ask. Is there anybody else that was on your squad outside of yourself. You're like man that got you know. Maybe a defense lineman play next ear. Whatever just some people might have stood out mobile that that really stood out to us good players on my team. Offensively thatta david. More from grambling state. law player then oxy on the opposite side. I was going against. Crete humphries good for welfare. In in general. I mean camp sample. Did his thing at the senior bowl so should now on the line Like across next musso like those are the the players are pretty much it off for sure for sure.

Usc wanted to talk a little. Bit about your recruiting process. I coming out of high school. You're a big time recruit Had a lot of interest from a lot of schools. I knew you originally committed to washington being from that area. I'm sure that had a lot to do with it. And then you transition to us seek you talk about a little bit of your recruiting process. How that all unfolded and how it went down for you so like you said. I guess i was a big timer group before basically firm Maxwell pretty much and then committed to washington a grade school Great coaches could was a great guy. I felt like i was comfortable with him. And i was like felt like i was gonna develop wonder him And guys so. I was raised in california but went to high school in oregon. So like just being a closer to my family and things like that That it was best to just go back home in an play for usc and n. a. Also marching school growing up so after like a little more just see was probably the most. So did you have any interest in getting outside of the pack twelve because i feel like so often guys that grow up on the west coast. Really do stay on the west coast and play for the pac twelve. Did you have any interest in spreading out and going to the or was it always kind of staying towards home being around family and going to obviously the school that you grew up rooting for just because committed pretty early in the process. I i think i've committed like my junior so like i didn't have time to really think about other schools but if i probably like never committed so soon outta gave like school is farther like in. Sec are acc big. Twelve like more chances are excellent Give them a much better chance to see if i would fit in with their schools did you. I know you said that you grew up in california. You know you a series of dream school. Did you follow a nfl team. Grown up a not really just falling good players against roy. Ever since the rams team back to la. Like i was. I was a la rams fan. Okay because they are the one team then show to the senior bowl. It isn't it. It has a means but it is my team growing up since they came too late magnolia. I know we talked about a little bit. But obviously you played a lot of techniques aerotech at usc Playing that big nose tackle role when you turn on your take your attic and obviously we talked about in hope against iran. Being able to play the run really. Well i think one of the best run. Defending defense tackles on his last But also you did show a lot of pass rusher. I know you said you're kind of working on adding some more moves. You know refining some that technique but you showed like the motors probably the best motor in this class and just like the put the pusher able to get as far as with your bull rush and stuff like that you showed that a ton to We talked a little bit about being able to play that three replay. The one As well. I know you've played the one a lot at usc the last few years. Are you more comfortable playing one or the other do thank you. Can you know. obviously we thank. You can do both where you kinda seeing yourself fitting in as a transition to the nfl. like whatever team up choosing like drafts me or signs me these like that like wherever they want me to play out so like whether that's the one or the three like i love to play both like i can't really say aren't particular favorite but a like just whatever the team needs pretty much so going back to your career. Usc a little bit when it comes to you know you obviously had a couple of injuries and twenty seventeen. What was that like to go through and feel like you're getting playing time you're a freshman and then having to sit out and you get the red shirt. What was it like. Once that red shirt happened. What is your your plans to then and Did you have any surgeries with the back or anything. And what was the injury in general yes so twenty seventeen like getting ready to play and all that and then like i said i had. I had that that end that required surgery. Definitely some tough. That happened in my life away from football for so long. Been the like the first major entity that i've ever had. So that was definitely tough. But once once like unraveling like that. It was like a like thousand. Couldn't control just trying to get back as soon as possible so just rehabbing every day. Just trying to get back to ma ma usual self only give back to the landfill. Yeah and then you know after that you played twelve games in two thousand eighteen in twenty nineteen. You've been able to stay healthy. You obviously were productive uniform and a half sacks as a redshirt freshman for a defensive tackle is nothing to scoff at. What is it like you know. Obviously you had j. lay beside you. What's it like to play you know around other. nfl talent. You know at the defensive side of the ball shot today man. Montgomery right there but Yeah jay's like a a solid player man like we grew up I can high school just getting recruited and all that sob non j. Before going to usc in does know what type of player he is and what he brings to the table. Just like how powerful explosive he is like. You know that just makes you wanna go harder yourself by his motivation. That's what it was for me. Pretty much And i felt like we were just trying to get each other better at ended today. Yeah and then you know off of that win was it. When did it really clicked that. Like i'm going to be an nfl player. Is it's something that you've just always had that confidence. Obviously you've obviously wanted to always be an nfl player. But when did it click that like. This is a reality for me. Yeah i mean that's always been a goal for of maynas going up as as a kid always wanted a plan to play in the league but a on this past season was probably the the this season where i felt like i had the most confidence to like. Really i can really like do so like with this stuff. Like being able to take my talents to like the next level being able to plan the next level so and i felt like i showed like a little bit of that others passi zid a certain game a certain wreck like like. Was there a moment that happened really like okay like i know that this is something that's gonna hopefully be my next career like or was it just like you said you just build up confidence. You had year top year. And you're like yeah. I'm building what i want to build like. This is gonna work out pretty much both like this. Having built up confidence on from the years slowly siham progression over the seasons This past quarantine like not having football like as made me wanna grind harder and a helped me like a by. Just wanna be able to focus on the things that i needed to focus on from previous seasons so just having that time opt to religious focus on myself in a become a better football player own. I was able to show that off the first game too. So you're seeing that first game against arizona state. I felt like i had a pretty dominant football game against them in a trial. Like this. this really do awesome awesome It's always like a game or something like that. Like a snap throughout a game the guys are like kinda when click for me And that's that's cool to hear Do you have anything else. You wanna hit on before we kinda go to the next subject link though cool i so i always loved this portion of the interviews more than anything because i like learning about you guys without the football helmet on so like things. You like doing outside of football. What are what are your hobbies outside of football. What do you like to do. Do you have anything that you just. You're super invested in That you do outside of playing football and training for yeah. I mean just relaxing and hanging out with friends and family. Then we'd always go play basketball So i had like my cousin. A dollar another sapien. In my little brother me past season so we'd always go play basketball together in any gift super competitive. And then and then we'd always go we'd always run warzone Duty language they bake warzone fan. And we just trying to get does every day. Still you still play it a lot in your free time or kind of slow right now. Not as much just. Because i'm trying to focus on this on this day stuff so once things like a calm down on star starhopper imac. She'll go. we're going to have a new map soon. Man it's going to be nice to finally get out of her dansk. That's awesome to hear i. That's how i spend my free time as well. You know my wife watching film. But i'm always at my best because i have my my computer that employees player. I'm a player now man. I made the upgrade. It's well worth in the field of view. It's the time the it's it's just. It's all better it's really go go warzone played in miami. No i'm i'm but i'm a good teammate. That we can do that. I know i've played with a bunch of dudes. It really like the frag out and they just run around superstore and i would rather take a little bit slower you know work on getting the dub because at the end of the day. That's what it's about. It's about running neck superstar and you die within thirty five seconds. That ain't gonna happen but you know when you're playing basketball especially with your cousin and your brother. I know from playing basketball and football. You know when. I was in high school. And you know even a little bit. You know in college. The first time. I tried to go to college. It got physical with the football players quite a bit or you. Do you guys actually play basketball or do you play football on the basketball court. I mean like. I wanna say i play basketball not i love. I love talent on me when it co well. Yeah just plan against my little brother and then a ama- cousin like those those. Those guys are super competitive so like we never wanna lose each other and like so we just try to go out there and win pretty much did you. Did you guys play any other sports in high school. Did you play basketball in high school Actually i wrestled in high school. Yeah we knew you wrestled you get into the whole wrestling back right but always played outside a wrestling mat. Time like in the spring or summer. play basketball my family in france for sure so how much of wrestling helped your football game. I thought you know we talked offense. Elilott offense lineman defense. lineman were wrestlers. Been day say that a lot of it does help with just you know knee been you know certain leverage situations like how much did wrestling and i hear from what i can read and what i see like you were really good wrestler. What what is that. What impacts is at had on your game of interior. Linemen all right. Yeah so with me Help like my hands like having more violent hands and then and then just understanding the body more like just being able to like torque the body a certain way to my vantage Wrestling in of an en- leverages well just like understanding the body of yeah just trying to control them stuff like that. A and a continuing to try to anchor down indeed like that you have. I did wrestling just to help me with football. And yeah so. I thought it was a great investment for sure. The reason you got into wrestling was to help with football. If if i didn't know about like wrestling Be playing basketball. Yeah cool yeah so so. Did you ever think like you sound like. You're pretty good basketball. Did you ever think about pursuing a basketball career in college. I'm big body and too short. you know. take pride in my defense and rebounding for sure. Okay the box out game. That's that was my entire game in high school was defense in you know i'm not as much rebounding because i'm only five eleven but i tried to do my best to box out so it could rebound you know outside of when you when you're hanging out with your family and friends you know. Obviously you have a lot of talent. New physically in the family What are you guys. Do when you're just hanging out you guys do cookouts Is it just hang around when you're obviously you guys play warzone. What do you guys do as a family. Most of the time. Yeah so my family was pretty religious growing up so we'd always be will be at church and be with my church family like my chest. Travelers plea like pretty much. The guys like grew up with and just be. That's like like posted till this day. So there's been around my trash roundly like we always have cookouts like that or like go to the park and have like. It's a gatherings. Where play wally ball basketball news. Just having fun. Water balloon fights like that's pretty much. It was one big community growing up for you. It sounds like that's that's always nice. It's always nice. I've seen a lot of videos and doing a lot of research background stuff. It's it seems like athletic dude for three hundred pound defensive lineman do you have any goals set in mind as wrapping up kind of for your Maybe something you're gonna run something that jump i. I've seen some pretty impressive. A box jaw videos of from your days. At usc manages china just go out there and dominate My day pretty much this hamilton of putting out good numbers and just continue to be here. Xhosas you continue to get better every day. I don't think. I have like a specific goal. But i just wanted to show a scout that of might listen for short or cool and you got anything else where we get out of here now. Let's let's get him out of there so he can have a little downtime and go back to practice probably or do something. I guess it's sunday so you have the rest of the day off. Yeah i'm just. I'm just hanging out. Nice cool i was like to close with us. A it is a question. What is what. I like to close with fan bases teams when they draft when they turn morrow marlin to blow does card. What are they getting in that player for. Sure gonna get a hard worker. Someone would accountability in when it comes to the football A grimy football player of violent a Is gonna as a able to do the dirty work so whatever you gave me a handle all that i. I love that you used the term grimy right there that's that's that's what i'm taking from. This marlin is a grimy football. And that's what i want might be tackles baby. I thought he's you say grimy or grind army. Yeah say like talking about on the field for sure. That's how much to go out there and do everyday for sure for sure. Well cool i appreciate. It was great interview really really excited to watch. Watch the pro day. Obviously so you develop throughout these next few weeks next few months and then draft as right around the corner so can't wait to see where you end up and thank you so much for coming on now. Appreciate you zil youtube. We were thing marlins so much for coming on the show. We were excited to have him on his. He is one of top seven or eight. There's your dog in the background. Oh you've seen her shoes. Merlin is the top seventy eight defense. Tackle those of us but yeah. It's it's tough because defensive. Tackle class isn't great. But i do like a lot of these guys in that second third round range and i think that's where he kind of fits in really well. Obviously you see him. You pick him up a lot when you're watching his team. Aj so he's a lot of fun he could play. He's probably a better suited for that three tech world. Who is going to be a strong run defender in that. Three can also provide some pass rush in that one capping scheme Which as we know is cowboys fans that makes a lot of sense here especially and it makes sense especially because the cowboys are going to be running a one gasping gathering troll scheme and with the gap control that means that instead of really trying to get up field and in finding you know those two hundred eighty pound three techniques. The three hundred to three hundred and five pounds three techniques can hold up against the run. That's where you know marlins get offended. Really well if he ends up being a gala and you know the thing with the defensive tackles currently on the roster is kind of their three techniques who they can like trying to play the one with never gallimore interest in hill. And i think with marlon. You'd have a guy who's probably a one technique that can also play three and think if that's the route they go where they don't go the elite mcneil who's just a pure one tack or something like that guy like marlin tupelo to is like a perfect fit so you know. I think he's a great fit for dallas. Obviously a great fit for any four three team looking for a guy who can play some versatile roles in that defense but we talked about his athleticism. We talked about the power. He possesses the leverage. He plays what to eat those double teams and be a really. I mean again outside. I think lee mcneil's neal's a really strong run defender but marlin might be the next strong defender at that three technique role So so i have a question for you about that. Do you like him or jay more. It's because i almost tweeted this the other day like because it seems consensus on the does right and i don't know that i'm that same way like there are super close for me. Well and it's interesting. Because i think that they played really similarly overall i think they might be a little bit more finesse and i think that's why a lot of people like that because you see him getting off of blocks and making plays outside of the tackle box one yards down the field i think overall like play to play basis. Man marlin is really really good at just doing his job. His motors and motor is very very nice. So i mean i do. I like both of them kind of in that same say i agree with everything. You just said again his. He's more athletic. Think he gets credit for because he played that nose. Tackle role did a lot of the dirty work So i think if he played in more of jays role you might have the opinions on inflict possibly But again i think that shows a lot that he was able to kinda slide into a lot of that dirty work from that zero in one technique spot but yeah. We're excited to have them on again. Anytime we can get these guys on the especially guys that we the cowboys should be interested in. We we enjoy having the morning because we know a lot of the people. Listen to this are cowboys fans and interested in the prospects. The cowboys should and could be interested in. So thank you guys so much for. Listen make sure you subscribe to the blog and the boys podcast feed on whatever podcast platform. You're using make sure you give a good review. give us a like and then make sure subscribe. Because that's the only way you're gonna make sure you get these podcasts.

Full Episode: Friday, June 7, 2019

"Hey, I'm Brad milkey, and I hosted new daily news podcast from ABC news called start here. Every day we get you up to speed on the story that are going to be driving your day. We get important context from experts with on the ground access, and we do it all in twenty minutes. So start smart. And subscribe to start here from ABC news. This is perspective this week. We'll look back at events that shaped the twentieth century and the people who took part in them. I'm Sherry Preston. Coming up the seventy fifth anniversary of d day honoring the world better into the ceremony in Normandy. You're the pride of our nation. You are the glory of our Republic, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, speak with a protest or on the ground in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine Tiananmen Square in China, besides the blushing means they would just beat us up and out this, where nobody dissipated massacre, and we'll remember a groundbreaking aviator broke barriers for women in the military's really no woman, I admire more than than Rosemary, or who was more inspirational all ahead on perspective. Seventy five years ago, June sixth, nineteen forty four d day, the allied invasion of German controlled, France Sweden was commemorated in Normandy by President Trump and leaders from around the world. ABC world news tonight, anchor David Muir spoke with some of the day veterans in the crowd in their nineties. Now they traveled back to normal this week to remember their sacrifice and courage. Seventy five years later, it was a somber and striking moment. President Trump and the first lady joining other heads of state in Normandy, to commemorate, the seventy fifth anniversary of d day. The old gathered over hot beach where seventy five years ago, thousands of Americans part of the allied troops storm V shores, the largest Viviers invasion in military history. The start of the campaign to liberate Nazi occupied France, it changed the course of the war, President Trump paying tribute to the quiet heroes, the boys who became in that day. You're the pride of our nation, you the glory of our Republic, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Other leaders here paying their respects, French president Emmanuel Macron on behalf of my nation. I just want to say thank you. Nearly one hundred sixty thousand allied troops to part in the invasion. Hundreds of d day veterans made the trip back seventy five years later now in their nineties and older. We lose more than three hundred World War. Two veterans every day in the US. Big. Listen, as President Trump described how these men change the course of history. I'm ready to go for weeks. We have documented journey d day veterans from all over America at we met them again here at the cemetery. The first one set up by the US army just two days after d day as we sit here in this area. You can't help but to think of that true. Others didn't come home. That's true. Vincent Unger from Orlando did not know how he would feel Zing this cemetery. I was wondering how would react and really I was captured I still am weeping within some. Because I saw so many young guys that day also lives. And we were with annot frio Sakari from Las Vegas, who had won wish. All across is a war to find a grave of the friend. He lost. He still has the photograph of him standing before his friends, grave so long ago and all these years later he finds him again. Donald e Simmons who died on June sixth, nineteen forty four years in the service of kills. The Jack herald STAN herald and Vinnie, it's an honor to sit here you all. Thank you for your service. Thank you. Appreciate it. ABC's. Tom rivers travelled to Normandy, with the president where the ceremonies took place. I talked to him about what he saw French president, Emmanuel Macron, and President Trump honored the allied troops, who stormed, the beaches of Normandy. On the seventy fifth anniversary of d day. Let's let you listen a little bit about what President Trump said to the veterans who were there in the audience. It came wave after wave without question without hesitation. And without complaint. They battled not for control and domination. But for liberty democracy and self rule. Well, let's talk a little bit about the speech itself with ABC's Tom rivers, who was there in the audience, you described President Trump speeches as presidential something, very different than we've heard the president in the past. Right. Very much. So Sherry, any he stuck to the script very well, written. And I think the, the, the salient point said he got across he, he referred to two of the US veterans that were on the stage behind him. And he kind of recalled what they had done their, their bravery in the fact that these were young young men, nineteen twenty twenty one years of age and what they had done, and you know that really resonated with, with, with the old stirs our on the stage, but the younger generation people to reflecting upon what the greatest generation did, and comparing it, maybe to what's. Happening today with young people on the other side of the coin was president Macron, the certainly did again, a very presidential speech. And I guess, a highlight of that was handing out, these, you know, the, the, the valour medal is, which is the highest honor in France, five of them to five of the US veterans that game over that involved in D day, and that went down, very, very well indeed. Yeah. And you could see that President Trump was was actually really moved by this anniversary of d day, especially when he and the first lady Emmanuel Macron and his wife walked over where they overlooked Omaha beach, and, and you could see them as a beautiful day. Unlike seventy five years ago on d day, but it really meant a lot to President Trump seemed like it certainly looked that way. And also, when they're walking amongst the markers, and I, you know, I think it happens to everybody, you feel you feel it in your chest. You feel it a lump in your throat when you look down at the at the crosses and the stars. David, and you look down. You realize these, these were these were people had just come out of high school, many of them and meant that could not have families. They're going to have careers, their life cut short for you. And I really for the generations to come. Yeah. The invasion of Normandy, eventually did lead to the allied victory in World War, Two, let's let you hear one more line that President Trump said on that day Normandy, the men behind me will tell you that they are just the lucky ones as one of them recently, put it all the heroes are buried here. And that's what President Trump wanted to get across the men who are on the stage. There were the ones who made it and all the thousands, who are in that cemetery. Did not exactly exactly and the numbers speak for themselves. Something like four thousand plus on the five different beaches perished on that very, very first. Day. And of course it wasn't easy. They didn't get that far in the slows five sections were not connected, certainly on that first day. And it took many, many weeks of battle to make some progress against the deeply entrenched. Germans at that time, so yes, whether the lucky ones, I guess they were, but it was like a flip of a coin who was gonna live who's going to die.

Allergist remember those days, I remember three things when was the power for experience the joy, solid. Dear to fell the hope head the country. The second thing is the great deep sadness felt right after the massacre that disbelieve shock the turning point of our lives and the lives, our country and the third point is after thirty years, I looking back with Greepeace and confidence. I saw how you know that night when the massacre took place. We couldn't believe it. We thought the blush means they would just beat us up and drag out the square. Nobody intimidated massacre of loophole massacre and so right of that in so many people believe the government class, in would would end the whole regime will just be over then as days prolong the martial law took place, the massive Matt haunt to place that most wanted to place in it was, it was a it was a why.

Camilo Brian died in nineteen nineteen just months after the end of World War, One this year, she was honored on the one hundredth anniversary of her death. She was a nurse. Who gave her all to treat wounded soldiers during an after what was, then the great war ABC's p combs has more on Camilo Brian's life? William coffin. William coffin didn't know anything about his great aunt commute, Brian, I had no knowledge whatsoever. What I had was for suitcase. That was in my grandma's house, and in that suitcase were plaque Machel's her medals and so forth. And I didn't know what to do with them. So condom contacted, Michael hit a serviceman turned policeman turned historian. He discovered O'Brien was a nurse who joined the Emory University hospital unit intent on treating American soldiers wounded during the horrific finding of France near the end of the first World War. Camille didn't have to get involved in the war. She could've stayed in Atlanta here safety. But when the war broke out, she wanted to do her part because they saw they had an army nurses core. So she joined it. She was assigned to the marine it and sent to camp, Gordon, which is now the site of DeKalb Peachtree airport to start a rudimentary training with the Emory unit. And then when she goes overseas right in thrust, and right in the middle of the war kneeling with all the carnage of war working fourteen hours a day at the minimum not longer constantly. It's those O'Brien was remarkably devoted to the wounded American soldier. She treated in France, she could've come home with other members of the Emory hospital unit shortly after the armistice, November, eleventh nineteen eighteen but there were still wounded soldiers to tend to so Camillo. Brian remained in France through the winter of nineteen eighteen and early spring. Nineteen nineteen in doing this by April. Second Camille started complaining of headaches. Their immune system was already read. From the war in her inner self working pushing herself, though, she sick has he tells the story, it suddenly becomes apparent Michael hit the retired. Police officer turned amateur historian has fallen in love with Camillo Brian. Oh, I've gotten to know Camille, quite well over the past year and doing all this research and discovering. We'd be good friends. She's a first responder nurse. But in the military, I wanted to know personally and the family didn't ask me to do this. I just want to know is there anything else about Camille, a story in the more I kept digging, the more kept finding the more I found, I found what a phenomenal story that has been forgotten to story of a girl, coming from a small town that doesn't even exist anymore. Coming to the big city and taking care of her father, and then I need to create something to myself. So what does she do? Let me get involved with the nurses school, but then it ratchets up because the war, but once the war ends on her own time, she was going and visiting the paddle fielder ver. Done in the spring of nineteen nineteen as she continued to treat American soldiers too badly wounded to survive the long siege, Ernie across the Atlantic to the United States, the headaches got worse, but when it began, she scoffed in this is from the chief nurse rightness home. She scoffed at the idea of having a doctor sear again on her deathbed. It's more important for doctors to be taken care of the soldiers and not me. And so, Brian died, April eighteenth nineteen nineteen she was initially buried in France among the servicemen, she treated and came to love eventually. She was brought back to the United States. A return heralded by the French Field Marshall, who commanded all allied forces during the great war. She was memorialized in a plaque posted at Emory hospital. She was remembered in speeches, given upon the return of remains. But in the end after the crowds parted after the ceremonies were over Camilo Brian was buried here at the Greenwood cemetery in Atlanta in an unmarked grave her. Her story faded into obscurity, with no children. She was forgotten hit was flabbergasted discovered. There is no marker here. But we know exactly where the body is with the research was already doing because I just get curious and finding a phenomenal story on Camille, it's like this cannot stand. So hit turned his research project on Camilo Brian into a quest honor, the brave young nurse the way she should have been honored when her body was reinterred here in Atlanta and do it on the one hundred anniversary of her death. At the ceremony not one, but two honor guards patriot guards, provided security, standing silently at attention centuries to preserve the sanctity of the mornings solemn remembrance. This time we're finishing what was left undone giving her beautiful headstone at the ceremony unveiling the new headstone, Kristen Stevens, and his eight year old daughter, Charlie. Marie, I can't think of a better way to teach my kids to come out and actually see what did Charlie Marie learn about Camilo Brian sale helped people William coffin Camille is great nephew has learned a lot as well about the nurse who gave her life to save the soldiers. She cared for so much over a hero, Pete combs. ABC news, Atlanta coming up remembering Rosemary mariner. The life of the naval pioneer on perspective after this have a dream. But don't know where to begin. I didn't want to be limited looking for wisdom for women who've already been there, you will constantly be given the opportunity to lose yourself. Welcome to ABC's no limits. I'm your host Rebecca Jarvis and each week. We're talking to the game changing women about success lessons learned along the way. And of course, the worst advice really thought about this worst advice ever you can hear new episodes of no limits every week on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast app. This perspective from ABC news. I'm Sherry Preston. Rosemary, mariner died in January of this year at age sixty five the former ABC news contributor and groundbreaking aviator was the first woman to command. A naval aviation squadron ABC's. Daria Albinger, ABC chief foreign correspondent, Martha Raddatz remember her life and impact, Rosemary mariner was a lot of things. A captain, in the navy the military's first female tactical pilot and crusading advocate for equal rights in the service paving the way for the first woman to fly combat missions are not in the military because there was a certificate Wedneday of equal rights women are in the military because they were needed. She was a part of our family here at ABC military analyst, you tell them from the very beginning that we have to separate you because you can't get along with each other, and then put them in the work environment. The place to learn to work together is not in the advanced schools. Or that work environment. It's at from day one in basic training. Mariner was also a wife a mother a teacher and to ABC news chief global affairs. Correspondent Martha Raddatz a very good friend. There's really no woman, I admire more than than Rosemary, or who was more inspirational to me, as both a friend and someone I worshipped professionally for what she did the daughter of a military pilot growing up in the shadow of naval air station, Miramar flying was in Mariners blood as Mary was obsessed with flying in, especially growing up in San Diego. She'd see all those military jets passing overhead she got her pilot's license. I think their first flight was when she was seventeen and she was washing airplanes to try to earn money to learn how to fly and she was determined to keep flying and ended up in the military in the very first class of. Of navy female aviators, and she became the first the navy's first female tactical jet pilot, but that wasn't enough for her. What it comes down to quite simply is Rosemary was not allowed to fly in combat even though she was the first navy female technical jet pilot. So she was training men that go into combat, so that, again, is what Rosemary thought this is not a because we are not taking equal risks. We are flying the airplanes in the same way we're doing what they do, but we're not allowed to use those skills to fly combat missions. Not only did she pave the way for herself in this business. She helped a lot of female aviators. Oh boy, did along the way. I mean, and and what a testament I mean, now we're all about it in every business, you know, we're all about women helping women. You know it's just a given. But that was not a given when she was going in. Into the business because she was the only one. So why did she feel this need to help everybody else because that's just who Rosemary was she? That's why she did what she did to pave the way for others to help others to kinda take the bullet for the others and, and to tell them what to do to make it easier for them. And I think every woman who's flying today, and there's so many like Rosemary Mariam she wouldn't want to take credit for everything by any means there, many, many pioneering women, but, but she wanted to help those young women not. She wanted to make sure those young women did not have to go through what she went through. And here's what she did about it. She would say that men were worried because they didn't think women could fly but later on, they were worried because they realized they could every time you look at this an objective fashion. And you study the performance of both men and women from the GAO to the army research institute the. Conclusion is that it was working very well in both performance of men and women is enhanced so it was a competition. She never wanted it to be competition. She was she wanted to quality. She, she often said, look, I'm not fighting for women's rights. I'm fighting for equality because particularly the military, she would say, if you do not take equal risks or face equal hazards. You are not equal. And that's how discrimination begins we are Americans first and individuals. First before we are men or women or whatever minority or ethnic group, eventually, she made her dream come true for others happened in the early nineties, and you don't think you to Martha mcsally who's the first female fighter pilot flying combat and Rosemary opened those doors. You know, I love what she said when she was asked if women were physically able to become pilots, and she said, what did she say a machine gun is the greatest quiz. A lot of that. I think she said something machine gun on an airplane, his great equalizer, and she just wouldn't listen to those arguments. It's, you know, she would say, you know, I'm sure there's some one hundred ten pound males in the Marine Corps, who you know if you put the same standards, they wouldn't make it through either Tammy Jo Scholtz, who landed that crippled southwest jet, there are, Jeannie, Flynn Levitt to was an who is a I think she's a three star general now in the air force who flew fighter jets. And in those women in what they went through in those pioneers, like Rosemary really did pave the way for others mariner beat a lot of things but cancer was one opponent. She couldn't overcome. She died earlier this year at the age of sixty five, but she broke ground, even a funeral to have the first all female navy flyover at her funeral. Doing the missing man, or in this case, missing woman for. Mation finally Martha shares, a story from Mariner's funeral which she says broader friends work full circle. There is a young marine there. And high went up and introduced myself to him. And he told me he was he's an F thirty five pilot flying out of out of Beaufort. And I said, how did you know, Rosemary, and he said, I took classes from Rosemary, she convinced me that I could fly when into the Marine Corps and at the funeral this young marine when to Rosemary's husband and gave him his first wings that he had gotten. He said, I owe this to you because I'm only flying today because of your wife, Rosemary mariner wasn't original I service.

Some bread leash. Just just did. Hey, this is French job walking because I'm dog walking right to this happened to me before this this type of thing I win when I was when I was a kid. Oh, I had not made it to theme park with one of those big giant swings? Swings up and then swings or like, a spaceship, or whatever it is. But it swings back and forth. And then it goes upside down over and around OSHA. So why profess that's my ride? That's my bed. Right. That all the live long day. That's my right. Got to theme park. Late that right. Oh, dear. Oh, what a stomach drop. They don't tell you about the stomach Dravo just looks fun. So did it based off information that I didn't have? Oh, sure. So today. Allegra I got to walk a dog named Tiga. K y g k it bull mastiff hundred ten on the ten on the tenant said it's going to be hard and ten pounds couldn't click on a fast enough. And there that's mine giant dog on it an in famous less warriors. Here's what I discovered I have looked pictures of dogs. I have pet giant dogs. If hug giant dogs like I have not walked in each. That's a huge muscular sue. And so now he. He was a gentleman with his gentlemen. So we had a lot of testosterone go. Okay. He's making the euphemisms like what is that? He can say what does that mean zoo? What is happening? Young lot of testosterone probably really well trained not. So those are those things you could probably amend with the bigger dog. But it's still was brought to the forefront that if if listen does it hundred ten pound dog outweigh me. Now, I still got you by thirty pounds. Put it's a tug of war that Georgia your body weight. Still that's still a big. Big dog, I want footage. But I think there was a good five feet were my feet were not on the ground just like running. And then it was on every romantic comedy of a girl who can't quite handle the big. Tyco we didn't wrap around one mailman. Just no meek you nothing. And then he dreamed the squirrel, and we stayed there for fifteen minutes. I can't move. I can't tag it just like per year. And we stay there to stay right there. We live here now. So now midway is this like when you registered to vote like you're like do I have to check in with somebody would be like, I guess, I'm just teen big dog. I don't vote in the dog prime. I'm sorry. This. Okay. All right. How young dog he's really young? I would put him at like three or four years. Yeah. Oh, interesting. Okay. Okay. So get so fully grown. Yeah.

But you can't make dog move. When he doesn't want to the the spiral that I went to let down you get a let down the people do get a bit of. I can't I've lied to everyone, and I do too because I still love them so much. But as far as like, the practicality of can't I walk this every day. I don't I I want to a want to. Yeah. Also. Okay. Let's let's look at this way. That's also one that's still still one dog say like Irish wolf hound may think is a less energetic. That's still huge because Leonard genyk. Yeah. I don't think it's going to have that massive pit bull energy that police around the block energy. I like that pitch another. Yes.
