That has no end in sight.

How now if you were the foundation investigator assigned to this case? Just remember no one at the foundation gets paid for our work. We're all involuntary. Here's so you crack the case all you get as a Bravo Zulu from our production engineer. Cindy which is navy. Speak good job. Let's begin with a brief history lesson about what is a very little known campaign reward to one that was actually default on American soil. Yep that's right American soil. In June nineteen forty two Japanese launch to carrier based attack on our our Erin air installations at Dutch harbor. Alaska this part of two pronged attack on Alaska in midway island. The results of the attack conflicted damage but did not disable the base. The Japanese had planned to invade Adak island in Alaska but they mistakenly thought database had already been established there however the Japanese decided to take the far western Aleutian islands of two Kisco. Instead landing on both of these these islands on seven June nineteen forty two this occupation by the Japanese American soil created the need for a US military advanced bates even even farther west in the Aleutian chain of islands. The development of aid AC island began on thirty August. Nineteen forty two when a force of about forty five hundred men under the command of Brigadier General. Eugene M Landreau waded ashore on that bear on in rocky subsoil. The first objective was a construction structure of an airfield and after a survey of an area of the island known as sweeper cove. It was determined that an air fuel could easily be constructed on the tidal flats. And when a dike was built to control the title flow incredibly after only a ten day construction period of the relatively flat airfield which was named Davis Army airfield the first airstrikes from aid acworth launched against the Japanese positions on at two and Kisco. These missions were first combined fighter and bomber strikes a war to in which the attacking planes struck from very low altitude. Basically right on top of the deck during the fall of nineteen forty two. The Eleventh Air Force flew regular bombing missions against those Japanese positions. On at two and Kisco. There were heavy losses due to flying missions that were between four hundred eight hundred roundtrip mile and the weather was just awful on two and three October nineteen forty two Japanese apnea planes. Strafed the base at with machine gun fire and dropped at least nine bombs on the island. All the bombs landed in undeveloped areas is which caused absolutely no damage the rates however did Place Tag Island along with Pearl Harbor and Dutch harbor as one of only a handful full of locations inside the United States to the be the subject of an enemy air raid. The may be soon followed the army and constructing facilities acidity on Adak. You know the army and the navy. They can't share things. They have to have their own separate airfield by the summer of nineteen forty three plans for the overall enlargement. One of the airbase was approved and implemented by the Navy to permanent runways designated Mitchel Field Naval Air Station. Were constructed between Lake Andrew and Clam Lagoon on eight AC island. This facility was designed to support one hundred twenty officers and two thousand enlisted men they how up rated Catalina Catalina and Kingfisher seaplanes and Ventura peavy one light bombers the first months lots of nine hundred forty three saw the intensification of activity on Adak as the island became a staging point for the plan to retake at two island from the Japanese. Early May nineteen forty-three about twenty seven thousand combat troops were crammed onto a deck island ready to support the invasion of eighty-two perhaps two on eleven may nineteen forty three at who was fully under control of United States forces by twenty nine may nineteen forty three at the cost of about twenty-three hundred Japanese lives and five hundred fifty American lives in response to problems created by improper proper equipment and training experience during the invasion of up to the invasion force assembled to retake kiss Kyle and from the Japanese trained on aid AC island on fifteen August nineteen forty three the invasion support or supported approximately ninety thousand soldiers and sailors and over a hundred ships landed. It on Kisco Island. must've surprise the invader soon found that the Japanese had evacuated the island a few weeks before and there was nothing left but a few dogs after retaking of Ah two and Jessica Island well. The shooting were basically in the Aleutians came to Nia the. US forces still had to guard against a possible Japanese counteroffensive however of eventually. Hey Dak island. became the largest military military base in the Aleutian chain. One of the men assigned to this base. Was Lieutenant Junior grade. Hobart hair throckmorton. What the name? Hobart hair thought well. It's no surprise that his family and friends called him. Throughout Bhutan. Throckmorton was seventy one inches. She's tall one hundred and fifty pounds Brown Eyes Brown hair. I'm sorry and blue is kind of a dark complexion you pitted me of the tall handsome handsome young man. He was twenty four years of age. Hobart Hair throckmorton stated he was born in Des Moines Iowa to Tom. Be and Edna W Throgmorton as I mentioned he was known to throw to his family and Finn France in his father was a physician well-to-do physician who could afford a made in their home thought graduated from Roosevelt High School in Des Moines Iowa in nineteen thirty six.

After graduation from high school entered Drake University in Moines and was a member of the Alpha Omega Fraternity Cardi before transferring our state college to major in architectural engineering at the time of the nineteen forty cents. Th Rock was living with his parents and a younger brother at nine nineteen forty fifth street in Des Moines Iowa. The House built in one thousand. Nine hundred fifteen is still air you you can go by and salute throughout the. Please don't bother the family. Who lives there now? They probably have no idea that it was once the residence when American war hero registered for the graph the draft on sixteen October nineteen forty and stated. He was a student at our state on twenty six. June nineteen forty one while still a student at our state thraw joined the United States Navy reserves and was assigned the rank at his request of Aviation Cadet Cadet thought were sent to the Naval Air Station in Corpus Christi Texas.

One thousand nine hundred eighty two instant throckmorton. His unit had been outfitted with the new walkie walkie p. v. one been shoora bombers and assigned to the Aleutian islands to counter the Japanese attack on Dutch harbor in Synthroid Mortenson returned home on leave to moines or he married Shirley Ambrose on twenty seven September nineteen forty two a month inflator. Instant Throckmorton was promoted to lieutenant junior grade and was back to active duty in the Aleutians.

Throckmorton was given again leave to return home to moines or he made a speech to the servicemen's Club on twenty three March nineteen forty-three about his his war experiences and more importantly he and his wife conceived a baby girl during his leave who sadly would would never see her father after returning to the war from home. Believe Lieutenant Throckmorton was transferred bombing squadron. The B one thirty six on sixteen April nineteen forty three and he was stationed on Aytac Island Alaska on twenty five September nineteen forty-three Lieutenant. J G Throckmorton was assigned to pilot. PV One Ventura Bureau number three three one three three from on the Naval Air Station at eight AC island on a local area training mission the crew of this aircraft included Lieutenant John Throckmorton his copilot. Lieutenant J G Claude mckinney Aviation Machinist Mate Albert. Toth Aviation Radio Man Stanley F Kamath and aviation chief machinist mate Franklin Bohannon and the final member of the crew. who was the radio operator? John a Rogers shortly after takeoff lieutenant. Moore's aircraft experienced an unknown emergency crashed into sweeper cove approximately six miles south of the Aba Adak Naval Air Station. Boats nearby responded to the crash site and rescued the copilot. Lieutenant J G mckinney. Hand Radio Operator. Aviation Radio man first class Jon Allen Rogers Josh neither the crew members who were rescued was seriously injured. But no trace of the other crew members including Lieutenant Throckmorton was reportedly found. Lieutenant Claud Edwin mckinney survived the war and he died on one January nineteen nineteen eight. He's buried at Riverside National Cemetery in Riverside California the fate and the location of the other survivor of the crash radio man first-class Jon Allen. Rogers is unknown at this time. The exact circumstances of Lieutenant J G Throckmorton loss are unknown is individual deceased personnel file or ID. PF is official military personnel valor. OEM PF and the crash report for a bureau number three three one zero three or not currently available to foundation investigators and Therrien lies the primary problem problem with this case. It is difficult for the investigation to perceive. If there's no leads to follow freedom of Information Act request or foia request to the National Archives were filed by the foundation researchers on twenty October two thousand nineteen so now for present we just wait we wait likely throckmorton. And most of his crew have wanted for seventy six years to be found curiously. There's no indication at any available record cited by the defense POW MIA accounting command. That there was any attempt at salvage of the aircraft or or any attempt to recover the bodies of Lieutenant Throckmorton or his loss crew members all the original. MIA's from Lieutenant Throckmorton crew remain remain unresolved. And there's no indication that any of them were ever recovered foundation. Investigators determined that a cemetery was established on on a deck island for deceased military personnel during the war however this cemetery was completely disinterred after the war and all remains. These were shipped to American military cemeteries in the lower. Forty eight states were returned home to family members for hometown. Burials the fort. Richardson National Cemetery near Anchorage. Alaska was established in war to specifically very soldiers of any nationality who died in in Alaska Foundation. Investigators have contacted the staff at Fort. Richardson National Cemetery and confirmed that there are no unknowns owned buried at that cemetery if there ever were any identify unidentified American servicemen buried there. The staff confesses that they have no information astor where they would have been sent other than quote lower forty eight states end. Quote Nautical Charts examined by foundation. Investigators indicate that the location listed in the currently available records for the crash of Lieutenant Warns Aircraft Known as sweepers cove is relatively typically shallow water depth is generally less than a hundred feet inside the code golden opportunity to search for Lieutenant Throckmorton and his lost aircraft and his other crew members was likely missed just last month in September twenty nineteen when a navy underwater water explosive ordnance demolition group sometimes known as e o d conducted an underwater survey of. You guessed it. Sweeper Co Aytac Adak Island Alaska the OD. Team was reported in the media to have quote sound and cleared shipwrecks in quote with her sophisticated needed equipment. So it's likely that the team could have also found a downed aircraft in shallow water. A sweeper cove the rescue of two members of lieutenant throat wards crew by nearby boats indicates that there were witnesses to the crash. These witnesses should. They've been able to pinpoint the aircraft's location and certainly the fuel and the oil on board. Pb One light bomber would have marked its location in the water for many days after the crash. There's no indication any available record that the wreckage of the aircraft or Luton throttle body or the other. Mia's from the crash were ever recovered so we are left with a series of questions that have no answers. What caused the airplane to crash? The number of aviation machinist mates on board to suggest that the plane may have maintenance problem and the purpose of the flight was to check out these maintenance issues. And why we're all in the aviation machinist mates lost in the crash. What did the two survivors have to say about the crash? We don't have the Byu No aircraft crash report to find this information out right now but we're waiting we. We do know that both of the survivors were not seriously injured. So why didn't Lieutenant Throckmorton. who was sitting very near both of them in the aircraft? Why didn't he he get out alive as they did in? Why did Lieutenant Throckmorton WHO's a vastly experienced pilot with by flying? PB Wa seaplanes seaplanes. Why did he choose to pass right over the top of the army airfield about four miles from his takeoff point at the navy for your the had a a problem and needed to land? Why didn't he just land on the army field right below him and of course they're dozens of questions that can be formulated related about why the plane was not salvage or the remains of at least recovered from such shallow water? Existed in sweeper co Maybe the plane crash sweeper cove at all. Did the DP a the defense. POW Emma Accounting Agency even bothered to tell the Navy E od team that they had active mit case at the exact spot or the group was doing an underwater survey survey or better yet. Maybe somebody at the defense. POW Miami County Agency will hear this podcast and call the navy and say hey guys. Did you happen to find a one ton to engine bomber on the bottom of sweeper cove. Please tell me you didn't blow it up will will. Stranger things have happened. Maybe that call will be made do the remains of Lieutenant J G Hobart Hair throckmorton currently lie entombed termed inside of aircraft P P v one of interim bomber somewhere in sweeper co on aid Alan Alaska at a depth of less than one hundred feet.

We Have A Trade To Announce!

"Daddy what are you doing? We're recording a podcast. He's listening. Islander. Fans are listening. Where are they the right here? Welcome to the Isles. Faithful podcast with your host. Michael Shirley Line hello and welcome back to the House. Faithful podcast. I'm your host as always Michael Sherline and this is episode number forty four. The trade deadline edition today is February. Twenty four th twenty twenty. We have trade to announce a trade to announce. We've heard that a couple of times does not in the last six hundred and some odd days with Lula Morello at the helm but that all changed it. Kinda changed really About a week ago when the islanders traded for defenseman Andy Green from the New Jersey devils which we will get into in a little while. Even though it's the first trade here we want to get into the bigger ones. And that is the islanders. Landing PENDING UNRESTRICTED. Free Agent. At the time the quintessential player or the cream of the crop. If you would like to say center that would be available today from the Ottawa. Senators talking about John. Gabriel Gabriel Patio. And when it's GonNa take me a couple of days to to let that roll off the tongue so for now on we'll just say J. G. Patio unbelievable we had a slow start. Today we really did seemed like there was a couple of trades early on Things started to heat up the later in the days when the news came through that you know I think it was dave pag not or One of the other guys had said that. The islanders seemed like they were hot on the heels of Patio and ultimately the islanders made a deal with the Ottawa. Senators to pick up John. Gabriel Patio for the aisles. First Round draft pick in twenty twenty which is a conditional top three protected pick if it is in the top three that pick moves to the first round draft. Pick in twenty twenty one. They also moved the second round. Pick in this year's draft and a conditional third round pick in this year's draft as well but that is contingent on the islanders winning the Stanley Cup this year. Obviously I would love to give up. That pick remains to be seen what happens so essentially we got patio or the islanders got Paseo for conditional first rounder in a second round. Where this year not bad. Obviously this made the green trade earlier in the month a lot more palatable. The islanders have been saying they needed more pop up front. They needed that extra center for depth. And now the islanders definitely have that depth at center with Barzel Nelson now Palacio and then once Zeke is comes back from injury to slot in there as the fourth line center crazy depth. That depth is now locked up for you know quite a bit of years here. I think the only one that really is going to need a new deal at some. Point is Zeke. Is I think he has two years left. But I I love that depth and then it came out that the islanders were looking to extend him right out of the gate. There was a couple rumors. I fell for a fake a fake twitter account. I've really tried to be good with this but I was kind of busy at work. I actually saw Jeff Capellini re tweeted. He got bamboozled too. I didn't even really look and I got yelled at by guys and I blocked. That deleted the tweet so whatever but Paseo then signed a six year extension with the New York Islanders. That was reality is for just over. I think our or at five million a year a the actual breakdown for the contract. I'm pulling it up right now as we look for it is should have had this up. Five million a AV. For six years in the first season five million base two million signing bonus. That's for the start of next season for twenty one twenty two six point five million base twenty two twenty three four point five million base twenty twenty three twenty four four point five million base twenty twenty four twenty five four million dollar base twenty twenty five twenty six. I can't even really think that far ahead. Three point five million dollar base. Here's a full. No trade clause for the first two seasons and a limited no trade for the final last for which is a sixteen trade Notre Sixteen team no-trade list. So that's that's the extent of that really Paseo comes patio comes to the New York Islanders with twenty four goals sixteen cysts and forty points putting him up as the aisles. Third leading scorer between Bailey at four in Nelson at three. He leads the team in goals by two at twenty four now as we've talked about There's no guarantee that he's going to score the same amount or even at the rate that he was up there in Ottawa. He's going to be used On the island in North I sit on the island in ways. That are a little different than he was up there in Ottawa. He was seeing first-line minutes. He was seeing. You know number one power play time and he is going to see penalty. Kill time here on the island. He's GonNa see power-play time. I'm sure Barry Trots is gonNA slot him in as he sees fit mainly as the third line center because he wants to be able to get back to being able to roll for lines which is so important. That's how you've seen the islanders find their success last year and this year and they haven't really been able to do that due to injuries and some personnel issues. But you know he's going to fit in just fine here. He's even set a ton of great things already about the club in. And you know you you see you know players do that with their new club and you know he has a relationship with some of the other. French connection players here. We have our own French connection line in dark pursue art and Anthony My computer is not working but one of the things he said earlier today is to have the chance to be joining the team. Such is such an honor to me. I couldn't be more excited to join a team. That's going to be competing every year for the playoffs or for championship. I couldn't be more excited as a player. That's what we play for. That's what prides us. That's why I'm excited to go and be playing for them. He had also said a couple of things about coming in right out of the gate and playing the New York Rangers. If you don't know patio for the senators scored four goals against the Rangers in the playoffs. He had a game winner. I believe in overtime. He is just a guy that seems to show up in big situations. He had a bunch of great playoff games up there in Ottawa when they had that could team when the islanders were kind of the situation was reversed when the islanders were terrible and Ottawa. Seem to be doing really well so we got a guy that has some plant experience coming in and he seems to be like a another type of energy player and a guy that is a Swiss army knife of hockey players. that'll fit right. In Berry trots system. He had said something also today in Another quote something about the arena. And how you know. He feels islanders. Ownership is dedicated and wants to you know have the best for the team moving forward and he obviously has been dealing with some of that arena issue up there in Ottawa. Is well with you. Know them moving out of Canada tyron or however you say that sitting name which is an hour and a half's drive outside Ottawa. It's ridiculous but we'll see what happens with the arena. Obviously it's it's well in the in the mix here they post updates on Belmont regularly and it's coming along very well but this is another indication of how pending restricted free agents or free agents are looking at the islanders a little differently. That's exciting. I know I was kind of blown away by some of the things that I heard today and will go into that a little bit more in a few minutes. The islanders also earlier in the month like we had previously spoken about traded a second round. Pick in David. Quenneville to the devils defenseman. Andy Green. He is fit in wonderfully here replacing the injured. Adam Pettit Pelvic. The aisles have allowed only seven goals during Greece. Four Games with the New York Islanders. The two assists. He's a plus three and has eight shots I don't know how many hits he has I don't think he's overall super physical guy. I know he has a bunch because I think that The game the other night he had a few. He's not even known for his offense But he's really solidified the pairings back there and has obviously chipped in We saw that great shot from the point that beauvilliers had tipped in and now he another assists the other night as well But he's given The coaching staff A new lease on life back there with the defensive pairs and They really seem to be playing at a level that maybe they were playing at earlier in the year. Which is could see. What else have they done here today? They they made one smaller move a minor league deal with the Toronto. Maple leafs sending winger Matt Loreto to Toronto for Defense Jordan Schmaltz US smarts was previously in the Saint Louis Organization. He's a former first round pick. I believe he was twenty first overall So there's that aspect of it. Obviously he was downplaying in the MARLIES for Toronto. But you could argue that maybe some of the marlins are playing a lot better than the guys on the large club right now. The News of the day obviously next to the patio trade was the deal. That almost happened. I know I was sitting there during lunch in couple of tweets came through. I think it was from Frank. Sev Several E or however you say his name having a terrible time with names tonight. Just the excitement of the whole day makes me feel so drained. Hopefully this is coming across okay The islanders were working on a trade to send. Andrew led to the Minnesota Wild for Zach parise and twitter kind of blew up all the reactions in my time line. We're like WHOA. What look at this? Check this out. I actually A screen shot at a bunch of the tweets because it was just kind of ironic that they were all in a row. Everybody basically had the same reaction that the news came out of essentially field which is probably one of the most exciting things about you know the trade deadline or even free agency is the teams that. Kinda come away with a player that nobody really expected And that's the reason why me as a fan that I I get so into. Today I used to take off on trade deadline day. I treated it like a holiday hole up in my living room with two laptops. I'd have the TV on NHL Network. Have the tsn stream on my computer at one point way back when with my blog. I had told everybody had to get the tsn stream on your phone by cheating the apple APP store with a fake address. So you can have the Canadian apps on your phone and then how to do stuff with VPN and everything else. Maybe some of the stuff would be slightly illegal if you really want to think about that but that always got me a ton of traffic on trade deadline day and I was glad I was able to help a couple of people out. It's it's definitely a fun day. So back to this. Almost trade just made you say Whoa. As news continued to trickle out. It seemed the things were moving in a positive direction. News came out that Zach parise. They had waived his no trade clause Andrew Ladd had waived his no trade clause. It seemed that Minnesota was going to retain a little bit of money on the Zach. Parise deal his deals a little longer than Andrew leads. It's a little bit more money. So there was some back and forth going on with that allegedly The athlete had great articles from both sides. He had Arthur staple on the islanders side. And you had Russo on the wild side. He's the beat reporter for the athletic ultimately. Something fell through. Be It news of the trade leaking or just to the crazy cap. Instances with the money going back and forth and retained. It seemed like it was a complicated deal. I had heard from a couple of people behind the scenes that it was a complicated deal net things you know where we thought as fans or based upon everything. We hadn't heard on twitter that the deal was dead. I had gotten a message that they are actually still working on it and it seemed like it went right down to the wire because you know nobody really knew anything but Arthur staple had the the deal as one for one plus other pieces and we obviously never know what the other pieces are you can maybe assume a defenseman or some sort of other throw in The islanders didn't have any scratches or anything. So it's Kinda hard to go on that avenue. They obviously would try to avoid not giving up a roster player like they didn't have to give up for Andy Green or for patio today as well which is something else that you really need to reference. The islanders improved in two areas this trade deadline without giving up a single roster player from the NHL Club that? That's pretty big. Obviously you can say while it didn't really get a wing in. I was pushing for a wing all day. Which you know the pres would have been but now that leads going to be up. He's he was said to. You know he's going to be up for the rest of the season I hate to say. He's the addition But you have clutter but coming back. You have Zeke is coming back. The islanders are going to get their identity. Blind back to the point where it was. Hopefully they remain healthy here during the next twenty some odd games to end the season. So it's one of those things where they will probably without a doubt revisit this come July. It seemed that Wanted to come to the islanders. Which is huge in it right or wrong because the islanders could have drafted Zach parise and they should have given everything his father accomplished with the New York islanders during the dynasty era. But they could've corrected the wrong of drafting Robert Neilson instead of Zach. Parise say in that that may come to fruition moving forward but apparently the trade was even going back to last summer. It seemed that Lula. Morello talk to the then wild Gm and Paul Fenton last year and I guess the wild really want lad at four years given he hadn't really played a whole heck of a lot with his injuries So I was at the game on Friday and I was questioning. Why lead was even in the lineup? I think I had said it on twitter. I know I said it to my cousin. Who's sitting next to me. This seems an awful lot like a showcase for lead because he hadn't played since December for the islanders and he hadn't played the last two weeks in bridgeport because of an upper body injury. So it is what it is there. I guess you gotTa do what you gotTa do in order to To get players to to move around regardless all this is fantasy for now It could have been. It should have been it. Did prove that Lou. Lamoriello is trying to improve the club. Finally it did prove that there are players out there who are willing to come to New York Islanders. We saw that in Andy Green. We now saw that allegedly in Zach parise so something to keep an eye on moving forward obviously We have a couple of players come back from injury and It was fun and exciting and in kind of a a tiring day to I know my phone had to be charged like eight times today. It was hot at one point. I had to reset it. Apps kept crashing. My phone's not that old either so I don't I don't understand what the heck was going on there. Maybe it's just a little excited like the rest of us but the best part really is that. Paseo tweeted out that he was on his way to New York. There still could potentially be a visa issue that would prevent him from playing tomorrow but all signs are pointing that he is going to be dressing against the New York Rangers who he had mentioned Had some good success against During the playoffs a couple years back so his first game is a New York. Islander wearing number forty four could be against the New York Rangers. And that's just going to be a sight to see. I know I'm excited We're GONNA have a lot more to talk about here. I know I wanted to get something out just to kind of get my feelings of everything here. on the trade deadline Jeff Capellini is GonNa join me Potentially tomorrow after the ranger game. So we'll we'll get everything all caught up there on The rest of the trade deadline in some of the other moves and some of the Games over the last week or so something else I really. I wanted to talk about quick before we. We moved on this episode The amount of twitter responses in the fund that I've had on twitter with all of you guys There's been a bunch of new followers. Obviously all of you existing followers continue to kick button. We have great conversations. So thank you for that But after the whole parise deal fell through. I tweeted at the end of the day. The PARISA thing I feel he would have helped but it wouldn't have helped with the salary cap in the contracts. Do this coming July. Jj Paseo came extended in sounded like a character guy eager to start his aisles career. He helps fill hole. And then I asked for your thoughts. There was a whole bunch I also added. Also you're dealing with two older players in the potential of Capri capture penalties. Which is something we really need to explore it a later date or at least have someone who knows a heck of a lot more than me. I feel as much as it would righted a wrong when the aisles should have drafted Parisa over. Nielsen could have caused too many other issues right now. And that's something Lou lamoriello kind of addressed earlier today. You know you have restricted free agents in Matt Bars L. Next Year Ryan Pool Lock Devante waves. I'm sure that there are others as well. May Even Anthony Beauvilliers I think he he's got a he's going to be due for contract soon. Give all these players that are going to need deals in you. Don't want to lose any of them's is specifically matthew bars. L. Lou had said earlier today that he's GonNa use the time he has. He's not worried about the restricted. Free agents right now but he plans on extending offers to all them. He plans on getting them all signed. So that's a big thing you know that could potentially be part of the reason why the Parisi deal fell through whether or not he was worried about you know Matt Bars L. and maybe even an offer sheet being drawn up by imposing club. That could kind of make things even more crazy for the islanders next season or in the least in this off season. Who knows I mean you got to kind of look at all avenues of things so maybe this is a blessing in disguise. It's good in that. It showed that there are players out there veteran players who their preferred destination is the New York. Islanders I mean Zach. Parise said that at least in an article anyway allegedly. Maybe didn't say it but it sounds good. It's good pr for the team. So moving forward. Maybe somebody else will do this as well but fact that Lula Morello is concerned about locking up his core. Guys the guys that you know. He's giving another shot at the playoffs this year kind of speaks volumes and again. Maybe they dodged a bullet. They don't have to deal with all this crazy contract issue stuff with lead and Parisa. I mean obviously they have to deal with lead for the next couple of seasons. But there's there's that aspect as well regarding some of the reactions of you guys and you know this. This is based on a tweet. I had said yesterday also about previous trades of the New York Islanders. Maybe how they move the needle. You had Ryan Smith and then the Thomas Vanek deals and it was more along the lines of things that kind of pop up out of nowhere and that kind of ties into the whole. Parisa thing because you never know what's GonNa come out of left field so this was kind of an extension to that and a bunch of guys had some great tweets at me Policy Ny Sixteen said. They didn't address the scoring problem while you scoring a lot. This series overall career numbers. Don't scream a sixty three or six by thirty million dollar player disappointed in get bars on the power play help. I don't think this changes much Then you have. Bill outfield built at Bill. Twenty-three short term gain long term pain L. Well then he had Emcee from the Dale. Mtc Two six two who wrote in the last episode a quality player waves his no trade to come to the island and then extended for six years. That's the thing aisles fans. Haven't seen in a long time. I don't know if that's a hundred percent accurate I don't think TASIO had a no-trade clause diddy a bunch of Lovett's Tom McKee at six underscore aisles. The biggest issue with this team all year has been the inability to roll four lines up front. This trade will allow them to finally do that when healthy which should greatly help the end of the year and into the playoffs which is a great point something. I had spoken about a couple of minutes ago. Justin Simon at College Cross agree although I was excited about Parisi with bars L. Even though I know he is past his prime etc but I was excited about that veteran leaner leadership. He would've brought you know and you could. You could say this too. There's a lot of veterans on this team. Whether or not you like it or not. Josh Bailey veteran Brock Nelson veteran. The new have J. G. Patio. Now you could say. He's a veteran at this point Andres Lee veteran you. Look at the goaltending situation. Thomas Grace veteran Varlamov veteran who else we got. Johnny Boy Chuck Andy Green you can go on and on a lot of veterans so it would have been another guy would have been someone who knows obviously Lula Morello very well and again. We're going to see what happens with that moving forward. It's obviously as a story that we're going to be watching very closely Then you got at scone. Egg Sal kind of glare auto. At first I was like yes Parisi but after I thought about it. Who Spot would he have taken? No thanks and those are the type of things really when I look to see what everybody else is thinking. It's always a mixed bag of emotions and I. I liked that I. I like going on the different message boards. I like going on read it. I liked to poke my my nose so to speak in into some of the conversations and I might say some stuff time to Tuck from time to time where you guys kind of question me and I had said something today even where it I had said you know now that we got Tasio I like the green trade even more and I didn't want to seem that I didn't like the Green Trade on. Its own you know and I was called out for that and I don't mind that I like to. I like to talk different avenues to kind of get involved in in different ways. Just another thing. I'm a fan at heart and I don't mind being called out I. I can back up certain things I I don't really take it to heart all that much or or to personally So it's great to see all the different reactions. You know that kind of role in then you have. David Strauss at Ari player lead is up on the roster and bellows is down so it would have been that third line wing over Michael Dell Com- RAV assuming that clutter wasn't included in one of those later to weren't on the fourth line Continue on here. People talking back and Forth Kevin Cosgrove at K. Cosmo ninety four the better today than they were yesterday. Bottomline Zach agrees which is at Zachary. Seven eight nine zero zero Let's see who else here. Joey Mena Cini at Mendocino. Joey agree I do think the parise thing will be revisited. I'll signed all their RFA's and Martin get Sarokin over. And I don't know if any big name free agent top six wants to come. I obviously again. That's another thing. We didn't really talk about Thomas. Greis is going to be an unrestricted free agent. Do they sign him to a one year deal or two year deal? Do THEY NOT Sarokin has seems like he was gonna come over and Friday. It seemed like that the islanders had traded his rights supposedly to Chicago. Suppose I had read you know and I don't know if this was an incarcerated Bob tweet or not. I am not sure Was Alex debrincat and Brandon. Saad for the rights to Sarokin. I would have thought maybe the Leonard would have come back. It would obviously raise some eyebrows in a lot of people had said the same thing on twitter ultimately not true. You had the the big Russian guy eager over there Shoot down right away. He's been spot on for all Russian things especially with Sarokin over the last couple of seasons so glad that that didn't happen but Sarokin obviously GONNA come in next year solidify the back end with Varlamov in. He's going to need a deal. So that's another thing you got going on overall lot. A lot of crazy fund things today and You know I guess. We'll we'll see if jeff and I get together. What other avenues we can get down and talk about some of the Games here Over the losing streak and the previous jeff four here where the islanders Kind of answered back. Got Two games in a row with it. They wanted home which was good to see Friday on Sunday so Thanks for listening. This is going to be a little short one just as your trade analysis so to speak and I mean hope you enjoyed it. This has been Michael Sherline with the aisles. Faithful podcast episode number. I don't even know what episode forty four of the twenty fourth and February let's go.

Inside Depression

"I had said something about depression on un-integrate and someone message me and said, it might country. We call that laziness and it like really struck a chord of me because I had really heard that before, but I remember feeling very lazy and I remember feeling considered lazy, but it wasn't like I didn't want to get up. I just, you know, when you're like really suffering like that. I think it's such a common thing. Hi. Hello. How are you? Are you good. I'm good. Isn't that great. I feel good. I feel happy. Not that you asked, but I know you care. I haven't felt depressed in a while not to brag, but as you know, unless it's a first episode that you've ever listened to it in which case. I mean, I hope you enjoy it. I will tell you it's can be a little bit different. I'll tell you more about that masecond but. I have bipolar disorder, bipolar two, which is characterized by pronounced depression. And so I've, I've identified as a person with depression for the majority of my life, but I've seen it drastically reduce over the last. Will definitely over the last three months. But over the last like eight months since I really started to take it seriously and go back on medication and do a little therapy to all sorts of other things. Other types of alternative therapies and just like really focus on mood management. And so so that's great. The interesting thing is if you're someone who identifies as being depressed or anxious or or any any anything that has to do with a mental health issue when you start to feel less of it, it's almost like you're like, wait, who am I. I don't get it or when's the ball gonna drop? Is that the saying. That just for New Year's Eve. You know how like, when's the other? Whatever gonna drop. That's what I mean. Like where you're just like. Is, am I going to wake up to press tomorrow? It you get kinda scared. 'cause you're like, this is feeling really good. And I had some of that earlier this year and what I was anytime I was like feeling depressed, I would just record it. And so you're going to hear a little bit of that today. There were some recordings that we didn't use one of which I was crying. I don't even think I could be understood. I was so depressed. And then I just started recording wives depressed. And for some reason, I was attributing it to the fact that I had just watched the Garry shandling documentary, which is awesome if you haven't watched Garry shandling. I don't know if you've watched the Larry Sanders show, but it is so good and he was just he. He really changed comedy on TV and and I just, I just like. Felt so connected. It's really sad that didn't make the cut, but you know what this is going to be more like this. This will sound as if I call Jill when I was feeling depressed. And since we're all best friends now, as you know, we are, you know, I feel the same way about you is you do about me. I thought it would just be an interesting change instead of it be me explaining something are giving advice ick. It would just be me just talking to you about how feeling that day this day happened to be in June. The Garry shandling thing I think was in April, which was also kinda shocking to me because I was like, man, I had to pressure in June. I felt like I haven't had depression in so long, but I did. So you'll, you can hear my voice as like a little bit slower. You'll still hear me laughing. I think once I'm like a two on the emotional rating system, which if you haven't listened to that episode is a great one. There's no laughing. There's very little talking even at that point, but. Otherwise, I try and keep laughter and lightheartedness in the equation just to keep my head above water, so so I still try and find the humor in some. Dismal. Abysmal. Not knowing the right word is kinda my thing. So that's why I don't worry about it. You will hear me talk about referred Owings -iety. I allotted times if I have really betting Zayed's and this is a good thing to note because it may be something that happens to you sometimes to all have. I'll get a depressive episode shortly after it. So I have like anxiety that lost for multiple days rather than just like I'm anxious because of this, but just like could even be low-lying Zayed's. It can trigger the depression, and you'll also hear me talk about some projects that I'm working on that psych. I was just getting started on the podcast and my book that I'm writing. So those are the quote, unquote projects that have caused me nothing but trouble since day one. No, not really. I am so incredibly grateful to have all of these opportunities and it feel. Feels just shameful to complain about things that you really wanted, and that you are lucky enough to be opportunities. You're lucky enough to be given. But man, these two in particular, cracked me wide open and have really made me realize how much work I still needed to do on myself in that as someone who takes pride in being so vulnerable, I realized and this was something I knew that lot of what I do. I don't feel vulnerable, but doesn't mean that I am above vulnerability. It just means that that that's my comfort zone is like I can talk about stuff I can talk about how I feel I can talk about private personal things and not have it be an issue, creating a a weekly podcast that you want to be amazing and informative and writing a book. About your life and knowing that you're going to be judged, you'll hear me talk about things being measured. It's it's like it changes everything. And I think I had gotten to a place where I felt like I was not above judgment, but it was like I had sort of proven myself out at Bando and with people in general, people seem to like me. So these are new things and they have been very triggering for me. So. So that's a lot of what that's the. That's the prelude to this docu style podcast. You're about to hear next week. I'll do a deeper dive into depression, like all sort of deconstruct some of what happens for me in a more didactic way. So there will be takeaways. This is more akin suggest. Of them call lemme doubt value up right now. Then we'll get into it. People be a. BP. I don't know. More wish I had a rotary sound. Bring bring bring. Fingering, why aren't you answering bring bring. Here we go. The minute I woke up today. I just know I was depressed. I'm so. That's a common thing that can happen at least with me and I read a little bit, and I think it's gonna make sense that it would be common that you might have executive followed up by depression. Sometimes you have depression, fellow banks idea, but a lot of times, you know. There's there's a huge overlap between the anxiety and depression. So most people have both. I say most people, but there's probably a better. Anyways, emotional rating. System? I would say Metallo four. He will like a four, three. I think in processing some of what was giving me anxiety just implanted some thoughts just like some. Solidified the feeling of overwhelm. I woke up to smarting and it was overcast out, which is never a great sign for my mood. And then I just like I did something stupid, which was I started looking at my phone immediately which I know I'm not supposed to do, but I'm like highly addicted to that. So the whole issue which I know I'm not alone in that, but then I just like immediately started taking inventory what I needed to do because you know, God forbid, I take a weekend away, which is like, why never liked to take weekends away because then you come back and I'm like everything. I left on Fridays there. And like the other thing is like the projects that I was just talking about. They all require my brain to be. Highly functioning. So it's like really hard for me to do stuff when I feel depressed. Which is why depression is commonly associated with laziness because you look lazy like I'm gonna fall short for people today. Come already trying to figure out how gonna tell people that I don't know very well that my brain just wouldn't work well enough to read a description for the self-doubt episode, but I know I have to do it anyways. So it's just like my morning has been. I mean, I have had this for so long that I just like no within like thirty seconds of being awake. What what the morning is gonna be? I feel very. Sure that I'm always gonna rarely try and just initially let it take me over. Like I got up. I put my little sunlight on that helps emulate sunrays since I knew there would be no sunrays this morning had my bulletproof coffee. And I just tried to start doing some work. So I would feel like I took a. Chop chop down the load a little bit. Sorry, the other thing with feeling depressed like your brain just. Brain just doesn't work. Which, like I said. This is going to be a huge issue for me today. I also took the week off. From Bando. So the. Could get head. Risking. Anyways, this is me Smyth be you. There's a time to give up their time to keep trying. I'm still in the phase work. I should keep trying probably have had a drink every day this weekend. Along with being Sidey. I mean, who knows? That's the other thing. It's like, then you just just in the same way with anxiety, it's like trying to draw straight lines two like was this because it was thought that 'cause it was this the 'cause it shows like sometimes you just don't know. Although I did feel it coming yesterday because of all the citing. Okay. This the, you know, the worst part about all this is it's like. Now I know everything's gonna be measured. So I'm just like. I would only interrupt this highly personal episode to talk about a company. I felt really passionate about. It's a female founded underwear brand called tomboy ex, and they have an incredible mission which is to create underwear that fits regular bodies and anybody could feel comfortable in regardless of where they fell on the size or gender spectrum. I think that's very important. I also love their addition to the traditional definition of tomboy, which is any girl or woman or person who does their own thing dresses the way they want gets their hands dirty and keeps their mind open. Feel like that makes most of us tomboys, which is very cool. I'm good with that definition in addition to the traditional definition in addition to whatever else we think we need. I haven't received my tomboy x. underwear yet. I'm very excited. I have a whole assortment of incredibly cute rainbow underwear coming to me, but you should check out their site. They have very cute cuts styles, and they have worked hard to consider all body types shapes and sizes. Incredibly inclusive. I feel like it goes from ex- extra small to four x, which is someone like his in the apparel business. Not an easy thing to do, but very important and they're doing a great job. They have made a commitment to their customer. They have an open dialogue there constantly creating things that their customer wants and working so hard to be inclusive and empowering, and I wanted to shine a light on that because I think it's important. So go to tomboy x dot com slash j. g. o. k. and check out their special bundles and pack pricing and j. g. o. k. listeners get an extra fifteen percent off with code to guess. It j. g. o. k. again code j. g. o. k. for an extra fifteen percent off ditch whatever you're wearing. A pair of tomboy x. underwear tomboy, x dot com. Slash. JJ. Okay. Business. Anyways, I kind of knew that by talking about all the things that might because the anxiety might also trigger some depression because it's like the weight of it feels kinda crushing. And when I woke up this morning, like. Within thirty seconds. I knew what was I knew what was laid before me from a mood standpoint. And if you have depression, if you've had it for any amount of time been aware of the new kind of know what I'm talking about. It's like you can just feel it is just like, you're just not super happy to be waking up and you're not like super AMT about getting out of bed. And I mean, if you're like that every day, that's a different story, but I'm like, wake up, happy type person get right up at a bed. I laid in bed for like hour and a half, which is just really unlike me, but I just like new that putting my feet on the floor ending up with me. I would have to face the day and I didn't want to face it because. I knew that I didn't feel good. In my brain, and I knew that this just so much to do. And I knew that. I might not be able to do it, but I feel really crunched for time. And it's just like, when you get depressed is just like you. It's like you just take a little walk inside your brain, and you usually just can take step right into the doorway of the brain in the thoughts you need are right there. Just waiting for you just like happy little kids like, hey, we're here. When you feel the process like you could look around for hours for just like the simplest thought and. You can't find them and when you everything you do as a sensually based on. You being able to find thoughts rapidly. It's very scary. Which is like everything I have to do, and I took the week off of Bando so that I could rapidly think. And then I woke up this morning with like. Mud mud in between my ears. So just dealing with that, putting it putting it on putting it as the because I think it's a common thing in to something to be aware of and I felt like telling you, sorry, this probably doesn't sell them that fun to listen to, but I'm just kind of record it anyways. So if you wake up and you don't feel that excited in you don't feel like you can really think about anything that you're supposed to do and you. Almost hurts a little bit to be. Awake. About in the food doesn't taste good in your bulletproof. Coffee doesn't make you happy the second. You drink it like it usually does. You just feel generally sluggish, you might be depressed. Oh, right. And if you're crying while you're according podcast. Very, very strong. Hurts talk loud. It's what I'm talking like this. I just can't. I just know I swallowed really loud in eight that so now. I wanna go. I hope this helps. I like how the end I just whispered to myself here. That's that self-doubt thing that I talk about. Please Louis into the episode on self doubt and negative self talk. If you haven't already because I think that was that was one of the first episodes that I recorded and still something that comes up for me all the time. I don't really think I'm done. I think sometimes when I feel sad are vulnerable, just like to. I just like to. Beat myself when I'm down. I'm sure lots of you do that too. I just like you to see that I'd do it. So. You might go, hey, don't do that. It's not nice. And then you might go. Do that myself. I don't even know Jack, but I know me maybe I should be nice to me just the thought regardless. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for sharing that with me are quote unquote phone call. I hope it gave you some insight into how feels maybe that's something that you recognize in yourself or a loved one. And like I said next week, I'm going to do an episode. I'll talk about things like signs of depression. Just like the basics of depression may be a little bit about bad being in a bad mood versus being depressed a little bit more about what it actually feels like dig in slightly to something I mention here, which is depression isn't laziness, but often confused with laziness, which is very important. Situational versus psychological clinical depression. How to talk about how to ask for help. Who knows? This might be three hour episode. Either way. I hope that you gain something from this. And I look forward to tell you a little bit more about it next week. Okay. All right. Let's take a quick pause for some good news girl boss. Radio is going to be launching a whole new podcast and partnership with our friends at to me. That's right. A whole new podcast series that's about to bring even more insight and honesty when it comes to Howard supposed to be navigating our journey, it's called in progress, and it's all about being well in progress.

It's just slight, but it's one of those things where rationally I know I don't need to be fearful or having Zaidi, but my body has taken on a different approach which is attempt to stop Jen from breathing, and I'm not gonna let it happen because I want an after show after every show and I have a major major update. So. So. I've seen long vets. The KADO v of KADO was found. Unharmed, but rotten under the passenger seat of my car. I don't know how got there. I don't know how it got there. It never was a passenger. It was only in my trunk as far as I know. But there it was. I went to pull something out of there. That's what she said. And it presented itself and that was that so safe and sound rest easy? No more produce in my car at least not for now.

How To Find Joy

"Gen? Yes, your diamond. I am so happy to be a Pearl Email. I think I lay Pearl encrusted diamond. Redundance, yes or Perot to large Pearl with diamonds, small amount. Yeah, I think so. This is an episode about finding joy, all talk about the difference between happiness and joy. Explain why choose joy and why it's important and possible for all of us to find it in ourselves. If you feel happy, this will bring you further down your paths to joy and if you are well not happy, this will shine a light on your potential for future happiness and joy. Here we go. Oh, hey, welcome to the home studio of Jenn. Gotch host of Jenn Gotch is okay. Sometimes. The most highest ranked podcast ever by Dr Jamie fourteen. He thinks it's his favorite podcast. I'm just going to say it. I know it seems braggadocious, but I'm just telling you what I've heard. One of the things that Dr Jamie loves so much about this podcast is, well, he likes things. I got distracted Blay ADD can't even look out a window in this place. You got dogs. Barking cats meowing birds chirping the breeze going gently through the leaves. All I have to do is look in the wrong direction and I'm totally gone. They should blindfold me and put me in a soundproof box and then you would get the podcast of your dreams. But right now we're talking about my dad's dreams and you know what he said. He called me after one of the last ones. I think it was. The what I did to feel better, but I can't remember now and was like, I really love this off the cuff style of this one. It was just very, like you were just talking seem very natural. And I was like, what kind of do that for all of them? He's like this one just felt like even more so. And it made me think I've been this podcast. Although, obviously it would not trade it for the world has been a lot harder than I thought it was going to be, and that has to do with the ridiculous absolutely ridiculous expectations. I put on myself to not only be amazing out of the gate at something I've never done before, but to get better every week. And that's just not gonna happen. But when I started it felt an honestly, I'm gonna say this and you you probably I don't know. You might not feel this way. I think I think most of my feelings about the podcast have to do with how it feels to create it not about like the the final product is great because there's fucking talented us people working on that. The part where I, where I sit here and try and record something in. Fighting with the voice in my head. Like I'm doing right now about did, I should just shut up is what's hard. And so one of the ways I try to mitigate that a little bit was to try and prepare. So to create, you know, I would create these folders with the references and I would I even got went, whereas almost like writing out the episode which I never ended up reading because the whole point is for me to just talk, but preparing became over preparing. And then that's hard and it takes a lot of work and I have two other jobs. For someone who didn't work for a long time. I've really got myself into something and so I don't know that that's serving the purpose. And the whole point of me going into this was like, I feel like I just have thoughts and insights and some wisdom because I'm older and I've been paying attention for a long time. I've been working on this stuff and to create a thesis for each episode maybe would be great if I didn't have anything else to do, but maybe as overworking something which I, which I feel like just. Is important for me to say because feel like the things that I do to torture myself are things. Lots of people do torture themselves, but they just they're never outside of their own head. And part of what I feel like I've been able to be for people is. Their thoughts externalised and and so I'm saying it because maybe we're all doing some of that as we strive for greatness and personal betterment in maybe it doesn't have to be that. And so so I'm sure the I, you know, I do it both ways. I think what happened that what I'm going to say is like I just I find myself half working halfway through an episode and then getting stuck because it's like a lot of homework and I wanna get it right in the night. Wanna get it more than right in than I wanna get it. Perfect. And then I'm trying striving for something beyond. Perfect, and it just doesn't make any sense. And I think like some of the value is lost because the other thing is like I just wanna feel like we're talking like I like, I wish that I could sit and have conversations with everybody and mostly you would just sip on a drink while I talk until I'm blue in the face in years thinking, can I get a fucking word in Driza night be like, no. 'cause I'm talking in so. I just figured I'd talk about something that came up for me this week and something that I've been thinking about a lot in allude to a lot of in a lot of the podcast I've done. I've talked about it a little bit, but you know it kind of the the idea of happiness and and there's also this idea of happiness versus joy, which was one of the podcast episodes that I was working on, because as I've been reading about happiness, enjoy, I've realized that sort of by definition, there's a distinction between the two and that happiness traditionally is more of waited on an outcome and on something external enjoy is feeling good about who you are, where you are. At any time. It's internal, so happy equals x. ternal joy equals internal. Now that's an and and the more I've read, I'm like, oh my gosh, huge, huge distinction between the two. The problem is not everyone makes that like identifies that point of distinction. And even for me at bandeau you know, we have one of the happiest brands on the planet, and I've been really working since we started the whole mental health conversation or to be a part of that conversation. You know, I really wanted to do a better job of articulating what we stand for as a brand beyond just the idea of like elation and fun, which is very important, but we stand for a lot more than that. And so I really started digging in on happiness, joy, and I wanted to be like, we can't ever say we're the, you can find us at the intersection of fun and happiness because I'm like, it's joy that we're trying to promote not happiness. But here's the thing. I'm just going to talk about what I'm going to talk about a joy, but I'm sometimes going to say the word happy, and I'm so sorry for that. They're, you know, in the English language, I feel like they're kind of interchangeable, but. But let's get to the point Jen. And I was like, this might be a nice little, quick digestible one. Just a little happy, happy, joy, joy for for your weak and food for thought more than anything else. But. So in the untethered soul, which is a book that I recommended in my books books, books episode, which is not called books because we had to give it a more title. But it's probably like books. I've read that. I thought you would really like volume one or chapter one or something like that. One of my biggest takeaways from that book was a topic or theme that he sort of plays into a lot of the book, but it won't point really just says it flat out like we have one decision to make as humans with mines, and that is, we can decide to be unconditionally happy or not. Just think about that ferment, it's up to you it that speaking to perspective, that's not about. Any that Sochi saying happy, but I think he means story because because it's basically saying. You are in control of that, and if you decide to make it conditional so that it's reliant on an experience, a person, an outcome. Anything that lies outside of you. You've just added risk to your own happiness like you can't control that you. There's one thing you can control and it's your commitment to your own joy. And that doesn't mean that should he things won't happen to you? All the time may be big ones little ones. Maybe it's just somebody cutting you off in traffic, and I know a lot of people that got really unhappy about that. It seems like I get unhappy about that. If you're Christina Winkelmann and you're driving in the car is man, you like to just like really give it to people, but I don't like if you will finger anything. I just think it's funny to like be like, oh, whatever jackass sure come righted the, but. But honestly, it does not make me mad. I swear. I'm pretty. I'm pretty committed to being happy, and I'm also pretty aware at least more so in the lab. Year, but I feel like I've always been sort of protective over my emotions, but I'm pretty aware when I'm leading something else control that emotion in particular because I cherish feeling happy and joyful because I've spent a lot of time not feeling happy, joyful, and some of it has to do with external things, heartbreak over. Loss over divorce over a a business thing, financial saying, a friendship ending. How I look how I felt something I wanted that I didn't get something I got that I didn't want. And then there's just the idea of being unhappy because of a chemical malfunction in your brain. Honey. Do you remember Honey book? I've told you about Honey book.

I never know what the people that watch my Instagram stories. I was encouraging that we were having a rough day and I just saw, I think, sometimes on social media, when I see people getting frustrated with something that I that I actually think doesn't deserve it. I see their unhappiness and their discontent. And so I wanted to say, hey. I learned this thing, which is we have a choice. We absolutely have a choice whether we're going to be happy or not. The choice that I that I referred to earlier and a couple people message man were like death, so discouraging, how can you say that having been through. All of these issues with bento health and knowing that you can't control it. How could you say that because then now you've given me something else to feel bad about, and I was like. How could I say that? Like is that bad? And then sometimes honestly, this is the strangest thing. And if you're someone who has done some healing or have has maybe been able to get some or all of your mental health issues under control atro- place where it's manageable. I get worried that I forgot how it feels to feel that way all the time and like, will I still be ineffective advocate for people that are suffering with mental health issues. That's the weird thing to be plagued by win. Literally. I have spent the last almost twenty five years actively trying to feel better to figure out what's going on. And then obviously the last couple years really, really digging in and working, especially on the depression, part of my bipolar. Disorder mining Zayed's that really was getting out of control and and my ADD, but the depression, the depression, anxiety, I think are what people connect to me most foreign. Like to hear someone feel that way due to something. I said, I, I was like, man at my that much better that I actually didn't even consider that. Like there may be times where I can't find that and then I sort of dug in and I just want to challenge us all to an even for myself because I still have down days. I don't have them as much and they don't feel as much of an impending doom as as they used to, but I can still wake up with depression. I mean in the last two months, I've definitely had probably four days of that, which may not sound like a lot, but it's not a great to just wake up feeling sad and slow and not wanting to face anything out of nowhere wouldn't when you can't look. Externally and find the reason. But knowing that it was my choice that how whether I was going to feel okay and and feel happy and put some distance between how I feel inside, not in my brain, but how like my inner peace. Sometimes it's funny, but it's just where I am. I'm just being I'm just being me so so they're connecting to that. I'm able to experience the sadness that neutrality of of that state and also know that it's okay and that. My truest self that lies outside of my brain that has more my soul is okay, and we all have that. And it's just finding the right people the right words, the things that resonate with you, that help you to connect to that and so that you can feel both because. What anyone that I have read or listen to that that talks about that is that it doesn't joy doesn't mean. Like nothing bothers me. It's it's that you can experience pain and still be okay and know that that you're, you're pure version of yourself is not affected by that that so much of that is is in our mind in our brains and that that's just a function of being a physical body of Lander. But that part of us, that's our soul is connected to an energy that actually is all about peace and joy. I can't even live up saying this. I'm actually kind of scared to say this because I feel like for a lot of people, it might be like, but I just want to start talking about it because it's honestly, the thing this type of thinking is honestly, the thing that has changed the most now taking care of myself and seeing doctors and getting medication and doing everything I do that. I. About all the time now like, fuck and broken record, certainly sets me up to be strong and to dig in deeper to some some of these bore, like philosophical of, you know, spiritual type things, but the reading about this stuff and and understanding about energy in really like who we truly are. So like my personal pass to enlightenment is is what has had the most profound effect on me. So I'm not going to not talk about it and I'm and I really want to actively find ways to talk about it that are relatable and easy to understand. So any suggestions you have? I'm totally open to it. And honestly, if there were ever a time that I could use encouragement to say, hey, we get it. We want to hear more or I don't understand, but I like you and I feel like you say lots of other things that resonate with. With me. So this is why this doesn't make sense to me. Please j. g. o. k. at bandeau dot com. Or on Instagram or whatever stopped me in the street. If you see me, make sure give Huck too. That would really help because I think it's important. And honestly, the more talked about it just with with my friends and people. I know it's, there's a consciousness that's happening where people are starting to to identify that that there is truth in that, and that's how that's how we're all going to change as individuals and as a society and now as a super challenging time and and for so many, especially if you're the type of person that likes to watch the news no matter what side of any issue you're on. It's a really hard time and and so what better time than now to find that power and strength within yourself so that you can feel connected to it and feel more quipped to possess joy in an amongst sadness. Challenges and all that other crap. Now what I want to say about that. There million ways that you can work on it. Maybe I'll do a follow up episode. Maybe I'll sneak it into every episode from here on out. I mostly want the people that that listen to this podcast that are suffering to know that I don't want you to see this as me being tone deaf to how you feel because I really did give that some thought. I want you to know that I'm championing this because I know it's possible, and I know it's a huge part of healing, and if you're not feeling able to deal with out right now, you don't have to you. Go easy on yourself, but just check in when yourself and see, could I find that could I find a little light in myself just a little little flicker in amongst the darkness that I can think about when I go to sleep and try and fuel it? And maybe. It's a little bigger the next day, and maybe it's a little bit bigger the next month and maybe at burns brighter until it's all you see, and that's fucking wild, but I'm telling you it can happen and. And I will reiterate that. I think it's important to have a holistic approach to wellness. And so I don't think this cures, everything, but man does it help. So just try and know that anything I ever say is literally met to help you succeed because I feel like that's what I'm supposed to be doing and I'm going to do it now. I feel like I'm supposed to go make some spaghetti because I need to car blow before I take my tennis Lahcen. Okay. Go find yourself, some joy you don't. You lay in bed to find it. It's inside of you. Okay. That's what she said by. Thank you for listening with an open mind and an open heart. I know for many, the concept of finding an embracing joy might feel daunting, and I totally get it. I've been there. So as someone who has found their way out, let me encourage you to give it a try even if it's for a week and just see what happens. Here are a few simple things. You can try. One make the conscious decision to choose happiness to each day, find a way to feel an express gratitude and yes, sometimes it is hard to find something to be grateful for, but if you dig deep enough, you can three disconnect with thoughts, things, and people that absolutely do not bring you joy and stead fill yourself with people and experiences that do bring you joy and more than anything else. Remind yourself as often as possible that joyous something that already lives inside of you. No matter how buried it feels. It's in there and it's awesome it up to you to find your way to it. Okay. You can do this happiness and joy. Here we come. What do you know about the after show is the j. g. o. k. after show you don't know about the after show, but is the show after the show after the show after the show and on today's after show, I am sitting under the covers in my hotel and bowling green, Kentucky because I thought the audio quality, my. And also a little bit cold out joy. Hey, joy show this isn't about you, but every time I say the word joy, I think of my friend joy. But I wanna tell you about another friend. I wanna tell you, I'm in love. I'm in love with Ingrid fatally. I'm sorry if that's not how I say your name Ingrid. Well, I know your name is Ingrid. But I never asked you your maiden name how to say it anyways. Ingrid's Ted talk on the of joy that Allie Lebel sent me because her mother Joan Lebel sent her shout out to Joan really changed my perspective on a lot of things. I cannot remember if I said this in in the episode, but since I've recorded that without, I got to meet Ingrid, which was amazing. She actually came to undergo and did a workshop on joy. That was incredible. And she wrote a book called joyful that you can read that I am reading and that I will most definitely included my next books, books books wrap up, but I wanted to just say hi of Ingrid, your phenomenal. You're so smart. I'm so glad I got to be you. I'm so grateful that you came to Bando and I wanted to make sure that everyone that listen to this podcast knew about you and now they do cool. I've out from under the covers because it got too hot in their hope. Everybody's having a good week. Bye.

How I Got Better (After Hitting My Lowest Low)

"I don't know. I don't know. Where do you go to the sto- full some butter. Hi, two years ago, I was really at one of the lowest points in my life. I was getting a divorce self medicating with food and alcohol, instead of proper medication, digging deep into my buddy and fuelling toxic relationships, toxic work behaviors, and yet just generally a mess. But through a ton of work, focus patients and a true desire to heal a much better healthier place. I wanted to share what I did and how I did it because it is one of the questions I'm asked the most if you're in a low place and need some guidance on how to find your way back to yourself, please give this episode. Listen. Oh, Hello. Hi, Hello. Now I don't know. It's like. Ten thirty at night which is way past my time, but. I just I've been a little stuck on like deciding what to record and I little. So usually what I do, you didn't ask me this, but I'm gonna tell you anyways. It's one of the things that makes me me at first. When I started the podcast, I I had so much that I wanted to talk about our literally dislike be like, I'm going to talk about self doubt and I would write down a couple thoughts and then I would just start talking. And as it turns out that was really hard to edit. And because I'm such a diligent worker who is completely obsessed with constant self-improvement, I feel like I've gotten pretty good with my system which is have a concept outlined few ideas, put some notes and then record in. So I feel like I've actually talked about so much. I don't know what to talk about and then Gertie this cannot be a through line. Kirti wants to still got sites like ten thirty s way past cat curfew, but I am so I've had, I have all of these ideas. I wanna talk about resilience. I wanna talk about happiness, happy nurse. I met a really happy nurse once my also met a hot doctor, but that's not what this is. Happiness, joy versus happiness. All the books that I've read as of late shit. I don't even remember. I've got like seven docks started on like a resilience. Diversity say that I might have. But I just was like. I couldn't go to bed because I, I really think I should record a podcast episode. And if you saw on my Instagram stories, I had asked for people to just send in questions that they wanted answered, which you can still do now j. g. o. k. at Bando dot com. And I just asked that in the subject you put like the the topic. So whether it was like career or personal or marriage or mental health, just so that I could maybe do a few episodes where I'm just like answering questions. But one of the questions that came through was like was about my diet. He which I think I've been like reluctant to talk about some of that stuff, but I realized that anytime I post like a before and after of sort of like what's going on for the last couple of years or even sometimes when I just start, I'm talking on stories of people like, how did you, how did you do that? Why? How do you feel better. Anyways, I think I was just like sort of reluctant to talk about it because it felt not shallow, but like self congratulatory, which is not a space that I feel super comfortable in. And then I also knew I had kind of done the like how to feel better now episode, which which talked generally about a lot of what I done. But I was like, you know what? Maybe I'm just gonna bust out this Mike and just tell you off the cuff now notes. Sorry, Lauren, Lawrence, my producer notes, but I feel like I know pretty well what I did, and I thought if I had this, then I could just refer people to this episode and I think hopefully it will inspire. You would give you like some actual things that I did to be me. The me that I am now, and that won't be the me that I am tomorrow. Oh, or next week, or next month or next year? Hopefully she'll be an even cooler version. Maybe she won't. Sometimes we take a couple steps forward and a couple of steps back, but I can't say for sure that the me from what is now coming on the anniversary of two years ago since Andrew left is much different than the me from today and what I will say. And if you don't believe me, please take a scroll through my Instagram account. I would go back about three years and just bring it all the way up to today. Let me know what you think about that. Some of it is compl- is unrecognizable even to me and I was there. I've had a huge personal transformation during that time. I was suffering in a lot of ways a lot of which has nothing to do with Andrew. And if you know me which most of you don't know me personally, although we feel like we're best friends, you've at least heard me talk. About, you know, my marriage at my divorce and it was in is totally amicable in I, I loved Andrew lot in. He was a great husband. We just we got some things wrong, and we were both suffering personally and in in lots of different ways in so that makes it hard. And I think we both settled into our suffering. I, I know I did. I I actually just got so comfortable with my discomfort that I created narratives for myself that made it okay to feel that way. And I think that's step one honestly is like I had to get really low and that was after Andrew left. But I, I got really low like I have to hit a rock bottom where I'm like drinking a lot and not sleeping and eating so much, not expertly. Just completely like. So self deprecating as far as like what I'm doing to my mind and body in order to kind of like wake myself up to what's going on. I think I had been in this like pain state that I had just learned to live with and told myself it was the new normal. So it's not so. So once I as sort of hit that space where it was like I looked in the mirror and I didn't know who who that was. I decided to take action. All right now here they are all the actions. Well, at least the ones I can remember that I took to feel better when I was at one of my lowest points. I adjusted my diet, my physical activity reached out for help from doctors therapists and friends and explored a bunch of alternative healing. We are so lucky to have so many options for help check these out and see what resonates with you. At some point after Andrew laughed. So that was by the time you hear this will have been two years ago. I realized that I needed to evaluate their relationships in my life and also just pop back into therapy because I had kind of been out outside of couples therapy. I had hadn't really been in like regular therapy for myself in quite some time. Although I went for a long time when I was younger and I think I quickly realized after he left that like I was dealing with a lot of pain, and a lot of things were starting to surface because all of the energy that I was putting on thinking about my marriage had now been redirected to me and just some things were coming to light. So so the first thing I did was find therapist and went to see her and I only went for like a month or two, but she really did help me sort of like analyze some relationships, figure out how I was going to navigate the divorce and and and also like identify that I was still mentally. Ill and I probably needed medication. I had been off medication for about five years and thought I felt fine. In retrospect, I was not fine. So the therapist sort of helped me to realize that I should be seeing a psychiatrist and identifying what medication I should be back on. So I went to the psychiatrist who I initially was going to while I want to talk to him because I was like, I need. I need help Hughes. Great. And in speaking to him, like what I, I was still in a little bit of a denial as far as like that. I needed help with bipolar, and I was like really feeling the pressure at work to perform and I was I wasn't feeling great mentally because I was not taking good care of myself at all. And and so my ADD was really bad. So I was like sort of sneaky. Like let me try Adderall. I. Had been on Adderall before it's great, especially when you want to not eat and feel like you're on a street drug. Which is which I'm not clearly as you can tell them not trying to sell you on outer all. It's probably one of the worst in my opinion shell, it is a, it's a bad scene, man, but I was like, let me just try this because I just want to perform better at work. I, I want hours and hours of focus. I wanna be able to lock in and man if I eat a little bit less that be great to we spent a few months trying to tweak the dosage of the Adderall or do time release or not time release. It just was way too harsh for me. It really exacerbated my ings -iety. I, I was thinking I was thinking a lot. I was doing a lot. I was focused a lot. It was hard probably to be around. I think I was talking a lot and talking very fast, very dry mouth. Most of the time drinking a lot of water, but it there that was not going to be a long term solution. And so I came to terms of the fact that like I actually needed, I needed to go back on my medication for bipolar. And so I talked to him about that, and he just said he wanted to be really conservative about how we approached it. Instead of just putting me back on the medications I was on at the levels I was on, he was like, let's just start slow one at a time, stair step it and see which I was like, please. No come on. Just let me go on what the dosages that I was on before with the medications I was on before, and he just really didn't want to do it that way and and I trusted him. But I also wanted like immediate satisfaction because. Think like when you decide you really want to help like you wanted that day and you wanted to go into a fact. And I think it's really, very, very, very important for me to stress across the board with the diet exercise sleep, taking care of rice off therapy medication. This was not overnight. There was not overnight. This was the opposite of overnight. This was slow progression, small wins periods of time where it felt like nothing was happening, but now being able to look back on it, a ton has changed. So anyways, when I realized that there there would be it would not be a quick fix. I knew that I needed to address some of these other issues that I was having. So I felt like I had chipped away a little bit at the emotional stuff in sort of just setting myself up for success on how I was gonna process, divorce, and all of that. I had sort of cleared out some relationships and some habits, both personally and professionally that I felt like we're talks ick. And then I had, you know, had doctors in place at a great psychiatrist ticket to get the medication going. And then I decided to figure out how I'm not one to to to love diets. But I had probably over the course of the last couple of years of my marriage and the time after Andrew left had probably gained like, I don't know, thirty pounds, which I'm five four. So it's like, that's that's a fair bit for person of my stature, though, clothes fit, I didn't feel like myself. And and you know, at any weight when you when you're larger or smaller than what you normally are? I feel like we all have like our, our baseline, whatever that is it's not like a quote, unquote, perfect body. It's just like the body you feel comfortable in and like I was so far above that for me, it felt like as wearing a suit, it was just weird. And shameful and all that. So plus it's just like the connection that food has to your brain in. And I talk about that a little bit in the emotional eating episode, but it's like, I just knew I had to clear that up. So I had started researching the bulletproof diet because I knew I was going to try and drink the coffee because I had I had tried the coffee before I went on Adderall in it. It really worked. I just it was like you. It kind of works better if you're following the diet a little even loosely, just because you're drinking butter and oil. And so I was when I did it when I did it before I went on the Adderall. I was drinking the bulletproof coffee and using it to wash down chocolate croissant every morning, and I gained like five pounds in a week because that's not how it's supposed to. That's not what you're supposed to do. It's actually like part of Akita genyk diet, which I would love to. Try and explain to you, but I can't talk my head maybe future dens. Gonna make a comeback and tell us very briefly what Decatur genyk diet is. Hi, hi future Jan back and in full of fact. So Akita genyk diet or Kito for short is kind of scienc- and I'm not a scientist or a doctor or even a health care professional of any sort. So I'm gonna tell it to you in layman's terms and then encourage you to give it a Google or goggle. If you're my dad to find out more in a nutshell, it's a high fat think good fat, not like ice cream at McDonald's, moderate protein low carb diet that encourages your body to use fat for fuel, essentially turning it into a fat burning machine because your liver starts creating molecules called key tomes that are an alternative fuel to blood sugar. In addition to burning fat, you'll find you have less hunger, a steady supply of energy, and it will keep you alert and focused good for your body. Good for your brain helps. If you like butter and grass-fed beef. Okay. Back to you regular old gen Gotch. I just decided that I would try it and I liked that it had structure and I liked the idea of accountability. And I liked the idea that I knew the coffee worked, and I just got lucky it just like stuck. You know, I feel like with any lake eating plan, it's like those first few days are. So it's just imperative that they go, right? I mean, I can't even count the amount of time. I was like, I'm gonna eat healthy and like by noon on the first day, I'm just like elbow deep in a bag of chips. So it just stuck it clicked it. I felt great. I mean, that's the thing, try eating right. And tell me you don't feel awesome. I mean, it's a bummer with that. You can't eat pizza, but I just felt so great. And so so I, I ended up sticking with that for like three or four months, like very diligently. And now I just sort of like. Moderation, which is the best thing for me. So it's so so as far as diet goes after the ketogenic diet, I still drink bulletproof coffee every day because it really does help me with my focus. But as far as eating in drinking goes, I both eat and drink. I try and do it in moderation. I definitely gone vacation and just eating and drinking, whatever that I try and like live clean for the week after that I focused like on portion control rather than like trying to like avoid major food groups like pizza and French fries. Those are food groups, right? But I turn it to have pizza every night, but there have been weeks where I've had pizza three times and you know what? I don't. I just don't shame myself about it. And I and I try and stay on track in. That's work. And if you remember the motion eating, I also went to go see a food therapist. I, I've been very, the other thing is I've been very, I've just been. Like actively looking for help. So if someone's like, you should try this. I try that. So so I did go to see if there I talk a ton about it in that upset, but it really gave me a great a great set of tools, one visit and and it it like really gave me a great baseline like Meyer relationship with food which is very emotionally based. And I feel like I've been able to shed a lot of that and just like have a healthier outlook on it and then exercise. So I primarily do Lek fit l. e. k. fit which busy. Had introduced me to. I think it was like two years this March. So I had been doing it actually for a while. I just was like eating like shit while I was doing it, but I love it. It's so fun. We, I do the bounce classes, so you're on a trampoline. You can obviously a lot of people that was podcast, don't live in l. a. but you can stream it online, Lauren, who who created the class is amazing bit classes, so fun. I don't love exercise, although I'm finding things that I can fall in love with about it. I do love how I feel after I've exercised and especially when you really sweat, it just feels so cathartic. So I've been really diligent about that. I don't go every day like like busy. I think she goes every day. Don't you? Busy seems like you do. She's just a bad ass, but I probably go three times a week and then I'll go on a hike or something. So so I, I. I approve my relationship with exercise. It's 'cause I felt like it was a positive thing. And I like out feels also like how it feels to lay down in bed and not move in just watch twelve episodes of Seinfeld, but I just mixed mix it up. So I would encourage you to find something that you love. It may not be. It may not be bouncing around on on a trampoline may be something else a fly wheels, pretty fun to or soul cycle all that. Honey. You remember, Honey book talk to you about Honey book. Do you like Honey? I like Honey, I had a sore throat a week or two ago, and it has some manuka Honey. Thus the expensive Honey and some warm water with lemon, and it really helped. And I actually think if you put a little whiskey in there, you got yourself a nice warm cocktail that would also probably make you feel better. Anyways, Honey book. If you don't remember is a purpose built business management platform for creative small businesses. And I was saying, man, I wish we would have had this when we started bandeau because just figuring out like the paperwork, the emails dealing with clients, payment collection in honestly, anything operational. Was not was not easy for us. So. If you have a small business or entrepreneurs, you're starting your photographer, your artist, this will really help you manage your business, streamline the client process, make your life better. Think of what you'll do with all your free time. I would probably learn to play tennis. Watching episode of Seinfeld. Or maybe even go on a hike. 'cause I hate now, but you know what? I didn't have Honey book. So I was just stuck working basically twenty four, seven. I encourage you to try it. If you try it, can you tell me how much you love it? I think you will. You know how much I am passionate about helping small businesses, and I feel like this would be a really great tool. And obviously there's great news because one do I ever not end anything with great news. Here it is for a limited time. J. g. o. okay, listeners can get fifty five zero because sometimes fifty sounds like fifteen, but it's fifty half off the first year of Honey book with promo code. Doc, j g okay, I'm I'm saying that because Jagoda would probably be like j g a h h h h w k it's not promo code j. g. o. k. Honey book memberships include unlimited access to all features at one low monthly price. So go to Honey book dot com today, use promo code j. g. to get started again, Honey book dotcom promo code j. g. okay. Okay, honey. Those are. Those are the major things. Actually, there's one more major thing that I'll tell you about how I took college, grew my hair out and beat Kelly in a hair garden competition because my hair so long now and Kelly, I feel like your hair is not really growing, and I'm so sorry to say that. Just kidding, it's growing. Your beautiful in your much more. You're beautiful in. You're young and you're smart, not just like a person trying to get attention. The last thing I did was really trying to work on. My. I think the catalyst was anxiety, but really understanding like why my brain is doing what I'm doing, what it's doing in the podcast was a big catalyst for that writing this book as a catalyst for that because I realized like there's so much negative self talk that goes on. And then I started reading about our mind in our thoughts are ego and how like our thoughts are not us in my friend, Ashley introduced me to rake healing, which is energy work, and this is the stuff that always feels weird for me to talk about. 'cause I know everyone doesn't know about this or believe in it, but that was the last piece in the puzzle for me lake really understanding that the world is made up of energy that we are made up of energy that our thoughts are not us, and that they are also not fact, even though it feels like it, I can't even count the times that my thoughts have. Lead me Sola stray into south doubt self hatreds of sabotaging Zayed's depression. And that's not to say that that's always the catalyst. But as I have worked on that, it has completely changed the range of my mental health issues along with the supplement of medication. You know, everything else doing acupuncture. I mean, literally, I will try anything. I will try anything. I'm highlighting the things that have had the most impact, but maybe the after show will meet be meet, just rattling off a bunch of stuff that I've done, but really digging into that and reading about that learning about that and and like our souls and spirituality and universal energy and and just getting a different perspective on like the human experience and just distancing just putting like. The tiniest bit of distance between my thoughts and myself was for me the final piece in the puzzle that I found this piece entering quilty that I had never had before and. Cried talking about it dummy like a light. It's interesting because I felt it happened for myself, like I felt myself kind of light up and and then people started telling me that I'm a light and that I'm bright. Like they just started using these adjectives over and over again. And I was like, that's so weird. It's weird when you hear because obviously like we all have our own personal experiences. So they're probably things that people say to you all the time that they don't say to anyone else or that no one else hears, but it really did do spark something in me. And so it it just I'm just operating on a on a different level. Not to say I'm not better than anyone. I'm just better than the version of me that I was six months ago and definitely better than a year ago, two years ago, three years ago. And you know what's cool about it. I still have so far to go. It's not. It's not like, hey, I've arrived. So here's the secret. To my success is right here right now. It's just like these are the things I did. I stuck to it. I held myself accountable. I craved craved improvement. I craved the idea of being better and feeling better and being a better version of myself and with all of the talk of self care, like I really introspective on what that men. And sometimes it means you know what always means going to bed at the same time in waking up at the same time, but I can't always do it, but it it. It means taking care of yourself in a really meaningful way. And that means work. I have read, I have spent so much money on Amazon. I've read so many books. I'm so interested in it. I just been thoughtful in my approach. I've, I've challenged myself to not say yes to the things that I reflect simply say yes to and did not say no to the things that I've reflexively said, no. Two and all of it seems to be working. And again, there are reminders every day for me that there's still a lot of work to be done, all die working on it, but it feels so good. And I, I hope that something some nugget in this helps you again, I feel like slightly embarrassed to be to be like, this is what I did, but I just, I clearly comes through for people, and I wanted to at least share it in hopes that it will inspire you. And the thing that I was gonna say before that I did say is like I was bleaching, bleaching, my hair. If you remember it was platinum and I and I honestly think it was like I was trying to become something else or someone else because I was just so unhappy with who I was. I was like, creating the persona or something, I don't know. But it destroyed my hair and I've always hot like thick glorious hair. And my mom one day was like. Where did all your hair go? And I think I just I just was so checked out that I didn't even realize what had happened like so much of my hair fell out. And so when Andrew left, I just decided I was just going to stop bleaching it. And if you remember my like half it looked like half black half white hair for a long time was just trying to figure out what I was going to do. And then I just like just started taking care of it and stopped covering and bleach. I mean, I still get highlights, but I just I started taking vitamins and brushing my hair and being kind to it and whispering sweet nothings into it in kissing every every single like. Kiss each hair before, I guess. And that seems to work. So hopefully you can implement these practices into your own life and hair kissing will become the biggest trend of twenty eighteen. There's still time it's not even Tober yet and we'll maybe it will be by the time you hear this. But anyways, if it is our Tober, please remember that Tober twenty my birthday and I love birthday wishes. Okay, that will just about do it. If you haven't been to the dentist and ten years, please go to the dentist. If you're in Los Angeles direct message me, I will give you the name of my dentist. She is great. It's not as scary as we think it is an I floss now and I am proud of it. And that's all I wanted to say about that. You can face your fears. You can have an outdoor cat. You can go to the dentist. You could feel better. You could be better. You can lose weight, gain, weight, gain, muscle exercise. Is more exercise. You can do whatever you want. You could take medication. You can find great doctors. You can find new friends. You can. Open yourself up to new careers and new opportunities. It's all possible. I promise. I'm proof. We are not done. We are just beginning. I don't even know what I'm talking about. Okay. Bye. Bye. So are you feeling inspired, feel better? I hope I answered some of your questions about how I succeeded in finding my way back to me. It's not easy. It's not effortless, and it's definitely not fast, but it does pay off. I feel like a new person who is also an old person, but not old as an elderly older than back to my old self who is essentially a middle aged teenager. Hey, jam great to see you again.

Important on my only lay out there for like twenty five minutes three times a week. It's not that big of a deal. I have a beer when I wanna beer. I took one step into becoming a Rakia healer. I ordered five hundred books on Amazon, and I've read some of them and highlighted some of them. I took a break from social media when I needed a break, did what I wanted to do. I took a vacation without without a cell phone and I survived it and went to the movies by myself. I went to the movies with friends. I reconnected with old friends. I made new friends. Oh my gosh.

Real Faith Stories

19: Caleb Guilliams

"You are listening to the real faith stories, podcast interviews with people who chose to boldly follow their faith. I'm your host. Brian Robinson. Now, let's meet our guest and hear their story. Caleb. Welcome to real face stories. It's wonderful to have you on the program today. It is a pleasure to be here. Thank you so much for having me on. Absolutely I would love to hear some of your back story Caleb and then dive into the company you started called Better Wealth I grew up in an amazing household. Of Six kids my dad's extremely passionate about science and the Bible. So I've actually been to Israel twice before the age of eighteen had the pleasure of being baptized in seghal lease. So I had a homeschool conservative upbringing. But. At the same time, I had that conservative homeschool upbringing that I had to relieve make a decision that is this faith, GonNa be mine or is it just going to be my parents? The two things that I really struggled with growing up. I was extremely short for my age. My younger siblings are actually taller than me and to this day I really struggle with reading reading extremely difficult for me. So I'm growing up I was the typical oldest child who has mature who's the third parent to must've legs no at the same time I had a lot of insecurities because I looked so young and I hated games like apples to apples because it just I couldn't read. A story that summarizes my childhood in my amazing parenting really well as I was twelve years old in front of all my peers at Riverside by Campos the last day I was supposed to say two lines. I. Totally Forgot these two lines, and in fact, I pulled out my note car which I wrote the two lines in like painfully sounded out every single word. And just remember that feeling of just like being so embarrassed and so frustrated and I went to my mom the next day and she encouraged me and she said Kayla things that you can't control your height. Don't worry about like literally don't portray deputy in something that you can't control but the things that you can control liked you're reading like how you show up like your work ethic you just need to try harder than the average person and that was just really special because I grew up in a household that did not pander to being a victim to pouting they encouraged me to work hard but they also didn't put these crazy bars that we had read reach that we couldn't control and so from there that was really the foundation of my testimony. Of me growing up but then also me getting into the money space because my next job I worked at a chicken farm and I gotTA chickens in. So let's just say I have an appreciation for the chicken sandwich more than the most and I started working they're making money, and that's when I realized that man money can money can literally be a tool that served so many people and yet. So many people are in bondage and they're suffering because they're not using money as a tool in fact, they are slaved to the institutions and to the. The dollar self, and so I started realizing that and I wanted to do something in the money space. I got a job at bank at seventeen years old at that same time I was graduating high school and started college in in high school, and so I started really taking my faith more seriously at seventeen eighteen years old as I got involved in college ministry and then I also worked at the bank and then what really put me on the map and we talked beforehand that you know some you've worked with I got mentored incredibly well through. The air and at the age of nineteen I actually had the opportunity takeover, the thanks investment department, and they're that's what gave me the platform to learn so much I get emotional just thinking about all this had to happen for me to learn, and then I really felt a strong calling from the Lord and just a conviction to not live life with regret and so after graduating college actually laughed started my company better wealth and which teaches a lot of the same principles and strategies that I learned at the bank and we use a thing called Google. And the and the Internet, and we educate and help people implement financial strategies that help take back control of their wealth and at the age of twenty one that's when I started that in now we have clients in forty six states and seventeen people on our internal team and so we have grown pretty rapidly and I'm passionate about people especially believers really taking control of what God's given them and be Stewart's now. And in the future and I'll finish with this. Our mission as a company is to help people live more intentionally. Now in in the future, it's it has nothing to do with retirement number or an at retirement age or cash number. It's all about what does intentional living look like and how do we do that now and so that's a little summary on on my upbringing and what brings us here today. Great summary. Let's dive into the process you went through when you decided to start this company. So you're nineteen and you took over the investment side of a Bank I. Don't know of anybody that age that's ever done something like that. I read a book called thinking grow rich, and I know that that's an interesting book as a believer because you on it, it's a lot of it's good and you have to take. Some of it with a grain of salt in that book, it talks about value creation and I wanted to be in the financial service business. I was super well-known in my town because I started networking at a young age and and so I got offered a lot of different jobs and I could have made a lot more money believe it or not nineteen years old I was making eight dollars an hour working. As the investment assistant before taking over the on Banks Investment Department and I actually stayed at the bank and kept my eight dollar an hour job and said, no to making fourteen fifteen dollars an hour doing other things mainly because I knew that the bank was a great platform to help me create the most value in the world. The other thing that I love is seven habits, highly effective people and in. That, I really started really seeking what is my mission statement? Why am I waking up in the morning like why would there's gotta be something bigger than just me making money and so I actually made a mission statement for myself which was really key for this time of my life and mission statement simply red help people see in resear- highest potential repeat that help people see and reach their highest potential yes. Okay. And the reason why that's so important to me is a lot of people don't even know what their God given potential is. And so the first thing is like how in the world supposed to help you if you came and see yourself Within the second aspect is, how can I show up how I encourage? How can I create something that will not I'm not the hero of the story, but I WANNA be by your side helping you only see that but helping you get there and so that was made without me knowing any of these financial strategies will before better wealth is even a thing. It was just like that was something that I that I made for my. Birthday. One of my team members actually made a plaque for me that still hangs on this wall today and is probably one of the most cherish gifts I have, and so that was foundation and then the guy that was running our banks investment department took another job and I was really the only other person at the bank at this time that was even in the department. So it started out as like a two month interim of. Make sure that nothing birds down by someone else and J G who is like a second father to me who is CEO of the bank he just took me under his wing and said Kayla people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care and even though I wasn't super knowledgeable. I I was very caring nineteen year old and so he knew that clients. Are In good hands and we didn't lose a single client, and in fact, I'm not GonNa say it was an amazing transition but it was a good enough transition where where I kept that role until leaving and so that was kind of the build up in what made that possible. So then what was it that started to shift inside of you to desire to create this company better wealth? So there is always something holding me back about being bold about talking to people and I realized that it was a fear of what other people thought of me. It was a fear failure because here I was really passionate about helping people with money but I was afraid of what if I don't make it? What if I feel financially and I actually really got deep? It's like what am I actually afraid of What am I really afraid of I was afraid of poverty which was funny as I would never be on the streets because my parents would never let me I have so many amazing friends like I would call you opinion let me be on the streets and so it wasn't that I was afraid of starvation. It was afraid of being a failure in the site of man and so one of the things that I had to do was I had to look myself in the mirror and say I going to lay this at at God's feet. And when I lay that cleese US me and it was very very clear that the route that I wanted to take which I did end up taking was only gonNa be possible if I could have my need something bigger than the opinions of other people because as you can probably imagine starting at twenty one years old I mean that's that's what most people are going in their senior year and they're trying to get internship. and. Here on starting a company and by the way, look like I'm fifteen. Now now I look gun seventeen years old. So I'm doing well here it was one of those things that there was a lot of potential fear and I think the Lord's really protected in that time but it was that was the process that needed to happen for making that leap. So you came before the Lord and you gave this fear to him. What was the process you went through as that fear started to get moved out of your life? What did you have to experience? I'm a big fan of the one life test, which is I think about death almost every day and not a morbid way. But in the way of knowing that one hundred years you and I are not going to be around. And, our life is just a blank slate grass that will wither away. We're going to go before the Lord and. We will need to account for how we used our time. I will use their money and how use the god-given skills. He's given us and I think that like fear of the Lord is one of those things where I'm not doing this out of I'm just doing this out of like God you've given me something to Stewart at it's not just money. It's not just my good looks it's time. I want to hear those words like you've been faithful. That was very much. One of the things is just knowing that I'm GonNa die some day and none of this will really matter in the end. That's really helps may take the lead even of not being afraid of what other people think of me knowing that we're all GonNa pass away and knowing that I wanted my life to matter and I'm here for a reason. So what was the first step you took? Then after you decided, you're going to start this company. That's a great question. Actually, you're the first person ever asked me that question. So the first thing that I did. I'm a big fan of bringing other people on that play to your strength and one the first books that I've read in business was good to great and the bus analogy of like you get the right people on the bus than the bus will go places that you've would never dream, and so I would say my God given skill set is in the ability to cast vision and the ability to share why. And so there were two people that were very key in this next transition. One guy was named Dan he's still running are like he's practically runs operations and runs a whole company now, and he was working at a university running all their I t and he was one of our early clients and he just was so drawn to the vision that I had within starting better wells that he started working for free for the first year. How did you approach Dan how did that come about? He approached me and it was very simple. He said kill I'm not fulfilled. And I wanted to do something that matters. Why would he feel like he could say that with you obviously had some relationship there. Yes. I'm I lead with vulnerability in almost every Every meeting conversation because I I know that most people will match your willingness to share and so if you don't know me, I can be very intimidating. But my hope is that if someone has a conversation with me that they can be willing to share anything and I think it's just friendship that we are building and it was the humility of saying, I'm GonNa do this I don't know how this is GonNa work. And like I was living at home at the time like I want people to know that I'm not like like I was scrappy. We are first office was under a Papa John's building in in the basement with no windows like that's not necessarily the most prestigious place to be. Close. To a food source. That's right. That's right. We have high speed Internet. Man Thought we needed So that was key and then the other person who's like a second father to me who actually died two years ago leaving three kids under the age of eighteen to to cancer. It was always our dream young growing up because he was a big mentor in my life that we were gonNA. Do something together and so I was very much the face but I had to really strong people behind me who really were needed in that first year because we are very vulnerable like we were conversation away from US thrown in the towel because we didn't make any money purely off of vision at that point. To people that are involved in this vision. Where did you come up with the framework for the company itself? The whole idea what was it the framework was? I very much believe that most people are devaluing their number one asset which is themselves. So in in a balance sheet, you take your assets, which is anything of value. You subtract it by your your liabilities and you get your net worth statement. The problem with that equation is a lot of people are are not a themselves. A lot of companies are no accounting for the people that make up that organization and so in my research and just helping people I, realize that there were so many smart individuals were not showing powerfully in the way that they viewed their time, their money and just what they were doing with their life and over and over. I just saw this common theme and so the framework for better wealth was we won't be company that first of all, it's super clear on what's important to you, and then help you with your time and your money and the utilize your expertise to live powerfully today in in the future, and so maybe that wasn't articulated at twenty one but we had a strategy called legacy wealth strategy which legacy wealth strategies. No longer thing that we talk about today but is essentially like how can you live your legacy today which essentially just articulating what I shared with you and and so we were really big on coaching and then the other thing that we were. Somewhat innovative on almost three and a half years ago is we did everything virtually now everyone knows what zoom s because at ruins now working virtually due to what's going on in our world. But before that, you have to understand that that was very taboo. It was like a lot of financial agents and advisers just were like, why would you work online like we were? It was very much of a sit across the. Table from somebody, and so we had that going we had the coaching model and then very much the non-typical way to approach money in those three things kind of made us unique and then I came out with a book shortly after that, which very much put us on the map and helped grow our business. That's how we started. He was very humble and we probably didn't do a lot right other than stay in business. That's doing something. Right. The name of your book is the and asset correct. Yet, what was the greatest challenge that you experienced other than keeping the doors open underneath that pizza? In the initial phases of the business, that's a great question and it was actually my fear of other people in our industry also because I was very much looked at as I've never went through a financial crash. I. Don't have gray hair. We don't wear suits were on the Internet I'm marketing, and by the way even at twenty one like I'm a better marketer than most at this point. And this is the local town. So a lot of people know me and so it was just one of those things where my biggest challenge quite frankly was my fear of other people in the financial service business because again I cared so much about what other people thought of me and I didn't want them to think like I was arrogant. That was the biggest challenge early on the challenge to this day but especially early on was. Clarity on what are offering is like, what are we actually doing like what business are we actually end? Those two things were definitely a challenge and we scrappy no one was on payroll, and so our overhead was incredibly low, which is a huge advice for most people starting a business is the thing that usually will tank you as everything takes more time and money than you think and probably the best thing that we did is. I Graduate College with thirty Cain the bank no debt I used all of that to get this thing off the ground Now, we're seven-figure business that has sixteen people, and so I actually took what I teach people invest in yourself really create that platform I. Guess My story is a perfect example on a micro scale what I believe most people can do with their resources in time inabilities. When you sit down with a client, do you lead with really digging into their Y and their purpose I guess let's talk about that. What does that look like because? That's very unique most times. I would suspect a financial adviser and I put that in air quotes is GonNa talk, about. Your assets liabilities, you know what's your net worth Blah Blah Blah you're exactly right. Usually the first thing is. Look at where you're at and then give you some kind of strategy or portfolio and what you can do with your assets, and it's all about the what Simon cynic in his Ted talk start with why in his books that very much is a key process for us early on is really articulating the why and even though I was buying for myself as smart person in this space by long shot, but our ability to get people to articulate. Their Y is stronger than most companies in. That's why we have so much success right now would this is how we work with someone is we won't move forward. If we don't have an our our statement in financial services business are usually stands for raider, return return on rest is what most people focused on and our WARR stands for return on results, which pretty much means what do you actually want what does financial success look like for you? If had ten million dollars today. What would you be doing? Get super clear on if money wasn't an issue, will you be spending your time on? We get clear on that, and then everything else everything else needs. Then be a mirror to how we get that most efficiently and for me like that's so obvious and yet you're totally right most people don't talk about that it. They assume that return is what you want and you can't spend ready to return and I've just seen so many people have this carrots whether it's their career or care whether it's their portfolio and they're turning their brain off and just doing. What they're told, the result of that is usually a terrible thing. The term they're turning their brain off is sad but true we want to delegate one of the most important things in our life financial planning and purpose to somebody else. That's right. When in fact, we all have a mandate from the ward to walk out what he's put in our heart as our desire to do it and I love that you're taking the time to dig that out of your clients. What kind of reaction you get from your clients when you start going down that path of what's your why and by the way we're going to strap you to the chair until you give us that answers. One of my favorite quotes is else wonderland. She said the fork in the road in the cat ask her where she's going and she said she doesn't know which most of America is in that category by the way and the cat says if you don't know where you wanna, go anywhere or get you there. So it definitely can be uncomfortable and we also don't want to be intimidating in. So we know that that evolves it really does. We usually ask why? Like five times with you say I want to travel between you and me that's incredibly shallow answer. But what you're saying is you want time freedom why do you want time freedom but if someone is just like, Hey, I want to not have to worry about work and watch the news and sit on the couch at the end of the day. I'm not going to judge you obviously my hope is through working with us your eyes will be open. But if if you're like this is what I want I'm not GonNa go along and say, no, that's not good enough. It's just at least. You're clear and then it's like, okay. What do we need to do? Here's the next part that most financial plans and financial advisers get wrong once you know where you're going sink about this analogy of a lot of people that know where they're going, they have one foot on the gas and one foot on the brake that creates a really cringe word picture go. But most people are so inefficient with their cash flow with their current assets and how they're approaching debt that once you have clarity on where you WANNA go the next step is not to create a financial plan or an investment strategy it's to audit. Your cash flow your assets in your debts and ask a question. Is, my cash flow best aligned can increase. CAN IT BE? Can we start tracking? Your money is where my money's going this best aligned with helping me with my our statement you look at your assets is my 401k is my Roth IRA is my real estate portfolio is my blank best aligned to help me live my wife's statement and is my debts debt can be one of the best or worst things it's like helped people create massive wealth in. It's also chain people. We don't take the approach that one thing is bad or good. When you have clarity where you WANNA go is this thing or what you're doing is at best align with where what you're telling me is important and you'd be shocked how many people are Super Hypocritical and it's not their fault. It's it's just that they don't know that they're telling me one thing and they're doing the exact opposite with their money. Those are the conversations that most people aren't having and when you have that. then. Everything else is incredibly simple. Everything then serves the why that you've stated, right? So, have you had experiences with clients have you seen these? Oh. My Gosh. Moments in your office where the clarity comes. And have you had those kind of moments and what's it been like twenty percent of our clients cry I mean. I was GONNA. Ask that Yeah Yeah even at nineteen twenty years old at the bank I use silence Synnex. Why circle just to by the first meeting because I didn't know what I was talking about. So I would just get really clear. And by the way, the reason why people love me so much is like I was very honest with them but they felt understood. That's like communication want one and so yes, even at the bank I would have people just. Loved me and just like felt cared for and just was like Caleb I trust you. You have a clear understanding. What's important than I would do my research on the back end and then carried through as we built team. We've really built culture around round that I think if you interviewed her clients about twenty, thirty percent of them would be like I knew that I was going to work with them even before I did talk to anyone just in how I articulate or how they heard someone on our team articulate why we do what we do. I'm just really proud of having culture community like that. How important has been? In the DNA of your culture is been everything. I'm often asked morning routines. And it's one of those things where having the holy, spirit? Whenever I feel anxious or whenever I want to worry it's like I have to remind myself why am I here? Who Am I performing four I've very much pray just for wisdom and discernment and that that God will use us while our company is not a Christian company. I would say eighty five percent of people on our team are believers and things. Happening on our team every day I spiritual warfare is very evident and we will pray publicly on our huddles with each other. I will call team members and pray for them. It's the only way to go. What kind of regrets do you hear from your clientele that sit down with you the first second third time in their is get opened up there. Any things that kind of spring to mind that you hear routinely. Go to a nursing home and ask people about their life and ask what they regret and majority of them will never say I wish I never. They'll never really regret taking risk. So I think it's just the combination of how view risk is we think of risk is putting your money in the stock account that could potentially fall in value or even disappear but a lot of people are just living mediocre lives because they don't necessarily want to. Put themselves out there and they don't want to take any risk the number. One regret I hear because I'll ask people that I admire like that same question that you asked me is they regret not doing something sooner or their regret just procrastinating and through the procrastination of their life, they've just not live to a fraction of what they can what God's called them to I think it's just some people need to get close to death to realize that. Life is incredibly short in it. It's like, why are we worrying and that's the other thing that I like I wanna be courage ing to you and your audience, and this I say this to even Kerr's myself is like in a world where there's a ton of anxiety going on as believers. What are we actually worried about? Mets boils down to his trust and then actually acting on that trust that you say you have, which is That's can be a big chasm for a lot of people. It's like that scene from the Indiana Jones movie. When he stepped into the abyss, the bridge appear what's one thing that you tell others to do that could have the greatest impact in their lives. If you could shout this from the mountain and say, this is the thing. That you should do for yourself though have the greatest impact what have you discovered that to be thus far hundred percent around clarity. I've just feel like so many people whenever stress enders over doubt or uncertainty it's usually because we have lack of clarity around how we should be spending our time, our money and our resources than I know believers that love Jesus, that are living to a fraction of their potential mainly because they're not willing to be uncomfortable and really get down and dirty on what they really want. So what shall see there is talk since you have one life. Spend the time today to understand how you WANNA live that one other question to ask and then I'm GonNa ask you to please pray for our listeners. Okay and that is related to something you filled out prior to our conversation and it came up twice and it's encapsulated in the statement I don't need to fear criticism or even death. Please explain that I believe most people don't act because of an external fear of what people or society will think of them because I think in America, very few of us will actually be on the street. So a fear of feeding your family is valid but I think for most people, it's the status of like taking a step back. It's like man knowing that we are GonNa die and knowing that we're GONNA be coming before the Lord Someday. I just want people to take a step back in actually in exercise at all do on on a piece of paper, I'll print off one hundred boxes and each box represents a year of your life and I'll have people shade those boxes in on how many years they've lived in, and what will happen is and I'm twenty four, and so twenty four years went incredibly quick by the way I actually. Encourage you to do this by the way and you will you will see how sas life goes, and you know, let's say you live to ninety longer than the average person even for me time is going go incredibly quick and so from there that just gives me perspective and at Perspective eliminates procrastination and in really eliminates fear on because the thing that I'm most afraid of is is not stewarding the. Tyne abilities and resources that the Lord has given me is there anything else you'd like to share the kind of stirring inside right now, I talk a lot about the money side and the thing that has really been the heavy on my heart is relationships are everything being a believer. We have a relationship with the king of the universe that created the world who has every reason to to start over. To be honest and yet wants a relationship with us. That's the most incredible thing and so yeah, we can talk about all this stuff and what have is a lot of people's relationships are not where they should be with their kids with their family with their you know the people that they work with the biggest thing that we can do is being relationships with other people and encourage and be present. And from their. Clarity will come from their opportunities will come like I. I'm telling You I standing here because faithful men and women that were believers and unbelievers by the way have poured into me, and I am literally only standing here right now because of hundred plus people that have given or shared or made it possible for me to do what I'm doing I know all the right things and and check all the. Right boxes but relationships are why I'm here in just one encourage you and your audience like that's so important. I mean, that's why I love being here with you because I know that a relationship with you is just like think about all the things that are going to happen in our lifetime together I'm a better human being because I could be speaking to you right now once thanks for sharing that. Caleb. So as we finish here, I'd love for you to pray for listeners before you do. How can people get in touch with you Caleb? What's the best way?

God at lay might desire to be significant and I just pray that you will humble my heart even as I'm praying here. Got I. Pray that you'll humble us as it relates to think about money.

An Advice Column Of Sorts

"Whoa, you're going to give someone a reason to listen to this. What would you say? I would say it's it's a, it's not a topic that very timely. Issue right now for most people in it's finally coming out in the open and in June is giving you up some spin on it as an entrepreneur. And fortunately, a longtime sufferer of melt illness. Yeah, thanks, good job. I see that someone and action. Are you doing a podcast. Hi, Hello. What's up? I always wanted to have my own advice column, and I think this episode gets me one step closer. If you know me, you know, I love giving advice taking it not so much, but I'm working on that, but enough about me. This episode is all about you. I'm going to answer a bunch of the questions that you emailed me in regards to all things work related career, business growth, pursuing your passions and professional success alongside mental health struggles. Think of it as a gift from Meteo. Is it your birthday feels like it's your birthday. All right. Here we go. Hello? Hello? Hello? Hello? Hello? Hello. Hello. So. Couple of weeks ago I asked on Instagram for people to send me questions that I would answer on my podcast. Here's why. We started something at bandeau called honor roll about blank years ago. I think it was four years ago. I can never remember, but it's a free advice series that we started. It was something I initiated because I felt like. I don't know. We were five or six years in that might have been five years ago, and I felt like I had learned so much about business in that time and really wanted to be able to share it because I remember being sort of at the beginning and feeling very lost, not understanding. So we used to do fifteen minute one on one sessions, and you could come meet with like our graphic designers or our social media or me, and we would, you know, answer answer as many questions as we could in that period of time. And it helped a lot of people. We've evolved it since then and have done videos, and I've done like a marathon of one on ones with people. Now we do a monthly series called on a roll. So once a month, which is a Wednesday night, we get some wine and a nice shirt coutry and we invite our community in to talk about different topics. So we've done some mental health. Ones. I mostly do business related things, but it seems like no matter what the topic is. The conversation ends up sort of tackling a bunch of different subjects, which feels great to me. I'm not one to color within the lines as they say. So it's it's such a great thing. And I had been trying to find a way to bring that to the podcast and I haven't figured out how to make bandeau a live studio audience yet. So I thought I would just take some questions and answer them. And I feel like you guys sent me well over one hundred questions. So I've worked them into categories and I'm just going to answer them. And then Lauren, my editor is going to do her magic and decide if we break it up, maybe maybe this is a two thing. Maybe this is a multiple multiple episode thing. Maybe this is there's one on friendships. There's one on how to start a career and we can keep it ongoing. So if you if you have. Questions, please continue to send them to me at j. g. o. k. at bandeau dot com. And just put the topic or subject matter of your question in in the subject of the Email. That's very helpful for me and especially for my system because she helps me organize all of that since organization is not my strong suit. So maybe don't send through questions on organization because I would be horrible at answering them. Anyways. Lossing I'll say is giving advice as a personal passion of mind. It is sometimes annoying for people because it's hard for me to keep my thoughts for my to myself. I usually wait until someone asked, but sometimes if I see an opportunity to help someone with personal betterment in any way, shape or form, I usually tell them what what I think. And it's mostly because I'm almost forty seven, and I feel like I've had a life a lot of life experience, and I've read a lot and I've had a lot of therapy and tried a lot of things. And I'm an experiential learner. So I've retained a lot through there and I just think, where are we without help from others? So without further ado, I give you me. Reading questions from you that I will then answer here we go. So these are all questions. That are career related. I haven't read these yet, so I'm gonna do it the way we do it at honorable because I don't get the questions ahead of time. People just ask him than I answer on the spot, and I think that's the best thing to do. Okay. Catherine asks in recent episode, you spoke on following your passion, but my biggest question is how to find it. I don't really feel a drive towards anything that pulls me hard enough to actually go try and do it, but I have small passions about a lot of things. Do I just choose one and try to figure out how if that's the one I could follow into a career? If so, how do I make a career out of a smaller creative passion? If not, how do I find my driving passionate life. Very good question. Catherine. First of all, being able to identify any passionate all is important because I don't feel like we necessarily are taught that growing up now. I haven't been in school in a long time, but I never heard the word passion until I was a grown up and the value in plugging into your passion. So the things that so in my mind passionate are the things that feel you the ideas that few fuel you on my God. Why am I making myself say the word? I, it's like alternative. I can't say that, although I just did. So maybe I'm maybe I'm over it. Your personal interests, just like what you do in your in your spare time, what you wake up excited about those are your passions, coupling snow about them. Yeah, maybe you don't have anything right now, we'll there's ways to address that. The other thing is they changed the things I was passionate about. Twenty years ago. A lot of them, I don't care about some of them. I still care about some. I care about more semi care about less your experiences lead you to engage with different things in different people and create different passions. So the first thing I would say is look at what you're doing in your spare time, like what you're not getting paid to do, what, what are those things and see if you can draw a line between any of them and a career. And for a lot of people plugging into their passion as a career is not part of the deal. And I, I remember being really stumped at like twenty something and my mom just saying, why don't you just get a job, get a job, and then Jews, the stuff that you enjoy on the weekends or at night. You know, she's like a lot of your friends are like that. You know they're pharmaceutical wraps are counts, or you know, they, they work for a corporation and it just that just did not resonate with me, but I didn't. I think you're either one or the other. And I know for the type of industry that in which is essentially creative entrepreneurship. I really depend on people being plugged into their passion. So I depend on the practice signers to be amped about product design, and I want the director of marketing to like love marketing so much and connecting with people, and you know, driving. Sales through those connections, and I want to a graphic designer to like be looking on Pinterest or Atta museum. Thinking about graphic design in their spare time, it makes a huge difference in your work. So this is the part in honor roll where Mike did I answer your question? But Catherine's not here to let me know. I, I would say in a nutshell release some of the pressure. If you know you have some small passions, right those down. And let's see, I, if you can't, even if it's just getting an internship with someone doing something close to what you're doing. I, that's how I started a lot of of what I was doing. And then I think it's it is really about soul searching and then just a knowledge base of light, the types of jobs that are out there and how you can take what you love and turn it into something whether that's going to be working for someone else or doing something for yourself. Okay. Hope that helps. I say that at the end of everyone too. So get ready. Okay. Shiloh. Asked. As someone who is shy and a bit of an introvert, how do you learn to step out of your comfort zone and network at events? I am so shy that I get incredibly awkward and feel that I'm not networking enough or that I know really what to say and how to engage with people in the business realm. So believe it or not, I too was once an introvert. I am not anymore. But honestly, networking events still make me nervous. And I feel like I have a lot to talk about in the business realm what I will say. And actually something that we're doing at bandeau based off the honor roll series is creating a a Facebook group so that people can network digitally. I say that with such pride and confidence, I didn't even really know about Facebook groups until like a month ago at our last honor roll when someone is like, do you have a Facebook group for this? So I actually think that the advantage of the modern day is that intervertebral. Have. Have advantage that they didn't have before, which is digital everything. So any kind of communications emails, you know, it's just the same as like, how do I approach someone for a job? It's like now you can do it electrically, and I do think, you know, looking at Facebook groups and and through all sorts of social media, how you could act with other people helps the the other thing is like, again, just remember at those sorts of events. Everyone is nervous. Everyone is nervous and I wouldn't put too much weight on walking out of there with, you know, some major contact or I think if you can have a meaningful conversation with one person, that's great in the other thing is like, don't you don't have to carry. Other people's reactions. And I think if you know that they're, they're just as worried as you are, which is just like a good thing for life. Everyone's in their own head. No one, no one is really even thinking about you when when it comes down to it, just trying enjoy it. And honestly, people won't even know if you're not talking to anybody else. Just walk around and see if you can get I contact with someone. Maybe you can identify someone else who looks like introvert and just talked to them and, and it doesn't even have to be about business. You know, I think so much of business really in the end is about friendships and relationships, and obviously your skill set in your resumes important. But when I'm looking for someone to work out, I asked my friends and they ask me, and if one of the girls in the office can vouch for someone who's an applicant that helps like the those things are important. So the, you know, I would think of it as a way to make friends and less of a networking event. My mom used to force me. To go to networking events. I didn't really go. She tried to force me and I was like, no way because it just the, I thought, I would turn to dust if someone talk to me. So I get it, but you can do it just get out there and make some friends, and if they just have to be online. I, that's okay too. Okay. This is an anonymous question. This person that has no name asks, how do I prevent myself from comparing my business to others that are similar and look more successful in social media aside from blockade accounts and simply not looking. Great question. Stranger. Comparison is the thief of joy. I did not make that up popular of saying maybe future gem can come in and tell us where that came from. Hi, hi future Jen here with the answer. I always have the answer, don't I? It was none other than our twenty-sixth president, Theodore Roosevelt. That said comparison is the thief of joy back to you? JJ dot, dot, dot. Okay. But it's true and something that. I've always struggled with. I do it a lot less now, but when we were starting ban Dell, I was like, comparing us to j. crew and not an I could not figure out like, why did they like look what they're doing? And they have new products every week and look at all the how beautiful their e blast czar. Look at look at these gorgeous colors and and then one day occurred to me that there's probably hundreds or thousands of people that work at j. crew instead of just two people. The flip side of that is like social media is a lie just across the board. I mean, even for me, someone who is like. Chronically transparent. That's not the word I wanna use, but the other word is getting us what's chronologically transfer. Anyways, you get it. I'm so dreads Barrett. But even then there are things that I don't talk about because if it has to do with with something else or like a privacy issue, I sleep keep it to myself, but. Most people don't even follow that, like they, they your, they're using social media to create a picture of of success so that their business gross, but everyone struggles, everyone struggles. I have never met a person that I didn't even that I didn't either know them or their business or their persona from Instagram that that almost upon immediately meeting them divided find out that they're, they had some giant struggle. Some issue, some shortcoming, we all have it. So if for you as a person, just not not looking at it is the best way don't look at it. But the other thing is, if you can remember, this is a facade and every business struggles. That should help you. And and honestly, if you can just compare yourself to yourself, like I measure Essex SAS against like what my personal expectations are, not what the world thinks I should do. And that makes me sound like, I'm awesome. I also can definitely fall into these trappings, but when I'm centered and focused, it's like, what am I hoping to achieve an I an m. i. achieving it and doing my best every day. That's it. And if it's yes, yes, yes, that's great. And if it's not, then I look at that, but the idea of that there's one sort of like track that were all on and there's, you know, one finish line and how we get there and who gets there. First is actually important is not unless unless your business is urine Olympic sprinter or something, I think otherwise, we're fine. So I hope that helps and remember comparison is the thief of joy. Don't do it. Don't. Do it so bad. It's caused me so much heartache over the years. Okay. Next cue. Okay. Here's a good one from Brooke. I am an executive assistant home, I gosh, Jen. Gosh. Can you not. Can you not pronounce words? I am an executive assistant, and while I do enjoy this work for now, I want to grow and pursue a career that is more challenging. I'm not in a major rush, but I was wondering if you could give me some advice on how to figure out what the heck I should pursue. I was an assistant to not executive assistant, but I was a personal assistant and then I was an assistant food styles, prop styles before I went out on my own, and I would say being an assistant is one of the most valuable jobs you can have because it actually trains you on how to be a great manager in boss because you'll learn a lot from whoever it is you're assisting whether it's positive or negative, you will definitely learn. The other thing is like you, you're exposed to a lot of different things. So if you're paying attention at work, you're probably I don't. I don't know obviously what line of work you're in. But I think about Deb shoutout to Deb my executive assistant who I know won't be my assistant for life. Even though Deb, if you're listening, I'll give you anything you want because I love you, but you know, we, she and I have talked about that before too. And I'm like, hey, you have all of these. Departments and all of these people and all of this work to be exposed to like, tell me where your interests lie, and let's get you involved in that too. So I think I to me my my first thing I would do is like talk to your boss and see how you can grow in your role and what else you can be exposed to because that often helps you kind of understand where you may want to go. It's like such a great role to be, and I think it's the same reason why internships are so great like you kind of get a lens on things that you really wouldn't have the opportunity unless you actually just applied for a job in a specific department. So milk it for all it's worth. And I hope you have a great boss because great bosses are important in that process. Okay. This is from one of the ten men of follow me on Instagram. Tommy. My name is Tommy and I'm eighteen that makes you a man. My dream job is to be a television writer and comic, how are the idea of becoming those things? Makes me anxious. Do you think it's okay for a person's dreams to scare them or should the career I pursue be something that makes me feel fearless? Did the idea of starting bandeau make you feel frayed such a good question. And I think something that a lot of us think about, and I you to one of the biggest things that gets in the way of people actually pursuing what they want is fear. I didn't have any fear with bandeau, but dot has more to do with ignorance than bravery. But I don't think fear should keep you from your passion. And I also think if it's a true passion, it absolutely won't. It will just be an aspect of the journey and. To me if that's something you want to do, then you need to start deconstructing like what the fear is and start identifying how to dismantle it, which which you're not going to lose your life, becoming a television writer and comic. So then you can. You can dismantle the fear. There is a book called the war of art by Stephen press field that I, I've talked about a couple of times that I found really helpful as far as like approaching my desires and fears around creative projects that made me feel vulnerable or things that maybe feel vulnerable. Oh, wow, vulnerable. The kind of sound like the right way to say it. I would not play it safe with your life. I mean, play it safe. Try not to jump out too many planes. And if you feel in danger because a person's coming after you run, but I mean, don't don't change your. Whole career path due to something that feels scary. I tend to think that sort of fear. Anxiety is a sign that it's something really care about an honestly something that I've tried to do lately to kind of flip my anxiety on its ear is to understand this is a little bit different, but I'm just going to tell you, I'm gonna tell you the story anyways. 'cause I think you could apply to a lot of things. I have a huge anxiety about people that I know and care about and and pets, but I don't care about dying or a house catching on fire or me being murdered, and I got to a point. I was so frustrated because it was really like it was just taking up so much of my time and causing so much fear and anxiety. And then I realized I could be grateful for for this. I could say thank you mind for alerting me to the people and things that are important to me right now because if they weren't important, I wouldn't be worried. About this. So thank you for helping me identify that. I don't need you to construct a narrative where they all die each day. So we can. Let's work through that, but thank you for identifying that. So I think if you're feeling fearful about something that you're really interested in, probably just means you really want it to work out and you're really passionate about it. So I would say pursue that mic drop bitch. I don't even know if that was that good of an answer. Okay. C. a. l. m. c. a. l. m. c. a. l. m. what's that spell com. Are you stressed or anxious? What are your coping tools? Do you use the number one apt for sleep, meditation and relaxation? I do. It's the call map. We've talked about this. We have talked about this because remember I told you how much I loved the function where it's a cool little circle that fills in and it says, breathe in. Hold it. Breath out. That's what it sounds like when I do it and I love it, I do it all the time is truly when I feel like I'm getting anxious sometimes just like focusing on one thing and focusing on my breath like that, really, really helps while I found a new feature that I loved because I use this athlete every day, it's called scenes and it has you can like, hear all these wonderful. Sounds like there's tropical beach, sunset beach, mountain lake rain on leaves. You can kind of hear it in the background right now. I like the tropical beach, but you can play it for like an hour, ten minutes, whatever you want. And it really helps to just relax. I mean, you could probably sleep with it on Philly. People use those like noise, canceling things. This is much better anyways. Have I sold you on this? I hope so because it's really, really good, and I know that so many of us are suffering, whether it's like having hard time falling asleep, staying asleep. Not being anxious or just wanting to become more mindful in life. This is one great way to do it for a limited time.

Jasmine's says jasmine asks jasmine types jasmine emails if the lack of a fulfilling career or any career for that matter is the source of one's depression, which would you believe to be the most helpful there be career counseling going back to school, all of the above. I'm suffering from a major identity crisis. I have no passionate or career in my mind for myself. I'm good at a lot of things, but nothing gets my blood pumping in makes me wanna get out of bed in the morning. I'm lost unmotivated and uninspired. I know this is the major source of all Manning's -iety. On and off for about three years now I work freelance making enough money that it gets me by, but it's totally unfulfilling work. I feel stuck like I don't have an identity or purpose, and it's taking a toll on all my relationships. Most importantly, the relationship I have myself. So. I would actually say before even going to therapy career counseling back to school at my answer would probably be all of the above because I think you've got to see what works for you. The thing that you said at the end about your relationship that you have yourself is probably the most important. And obviously I talked so much about emotional intelligence and self awareness, and just hearing you talk about this being the source of your depression, anxiety. I guess I just wanted to know, is that for sure the source? And is it not just when I think about feeling lost on motivated and uninspired sometimes to me. That sounds like it could potentially be clinical depression. I'm not saying that it is. I'm obviously not diagnosing you on basing this off of my own laziness isn't depression thing that I figured out at some point in my life. Now that said it's most likely. Combination. You know, situational depression, which I talk about in that depression episode is that depression episode, the episode that I talked about depression is that episode. So I think you could use therapy to identify if there is some some clinical depression there and then really identify for yourself, what does it what would have fulfilling career look like? And. How will you find things that make you get your blood pumping? And then what things eighties and fears are associated with that task because to me and I felt like this a lot when I was younger, I just it. It wasn't. It hadn't been laid out for me in black and white. I think something that has helped me a lot is like taking the emotions out of some of these decisions and just carving out what your path could look like. So like actually putting it to words when you're in a clear state and then obviously you're, you're gonna, be emotional and things are going to make you feel good or bad in those those will help you make decisions, but to really look at like, what does fulfillment mean? What? What are your passions and what does feeling lost in unmotivated uninspired mean to you? As I feel like once you've identified all that you can work backwards from that. And actually get yourself on stuck and then GAC career counseling is great. I, I would hold off going back to school until if if there's something that you know, you're super passionate about and you need a degree in order to get a job, then then do that. But I think doing some self exploration and then actually taking yourself out of it a little bit enough so that you can get a perspective on like what you're suffering actually is and what are the true root causes of it in and how much of it is situation on how much of it is just in your brain and how can you can fix all of that. I mean, I am a true testament to that. That's why I feel so confident to to give you these suggestions because perspective, awareness, emotional intelligence will really help and then guidance from mentors, doctors, therapists, friends that are in the same position will will add value to good luck. You're going to do it. You'll be great. Okay. Oh, get in front of the Mike Honey. We're recording long distance. Margaret says, I'm currently working as a high school art teacher, and I love my life. I think in the next few years, I'd like to change it up. I have always had a vision that I'd own my own company, but I can't figure out what I do. So my question is, do you have any suggestions on how to cultivate a passion to build a business. Here's what I will say. Don't do it Margaret, teach that art. No, that's a, that's a promise I made to myself anytime anyone ever asked me how to start a company that I would tell them obsolete, do not start a company, and then those that didn't listen and started it and then needed help. Again, I would help them because a lot of people told me not to do it and I didn't understand what they were talking about, but it is quite frankly the worst and also the best, but incredibly hard incredibly hard, especially if it's something you wanna grow. Now, if you just wanna have a small. Business that you that the intention is to for it to remain small and manageable. That's one thing, but if it's like something you're really trying to grow, it's incredibly hard and impossible to do on your own. And it requires a lot of luck. A lot of perseverance and resilience and confidence into nasty and luck. Did I already say luck? I should say luck four times because you need a lot of luck in great timing and all sorts of stuff. Money needs to fall out of the sky. Who knows that being said, you know, I answered a question earlier about passions. You know. Figure out what it is that you're interested in, pay attention to where your mind wanders to or what your fantasies are about. You know what you actually. So you see yourself doing something like their meditations and things that you can do to sort of clear your mind of thoughts and and let that vision come in and become more clear. Sometimes I ask my higher self to send me messages in my dreams, but I also do like these breathing techniques. This sounds so weird and a bed with a crystal on my head that I just asked to receive the information and it works. So I think there's lots of ways to find out. You know, some things are as tactical as like, make lists and do research and see what's out there and see what resonates. And then sometimes you just ask the spirit world by and I do all of the above. And so I think it's important and you know what, if it's the right thing. It's right for you and it's a right time. It will happen. I would not force that. I see a lot of people that are headed to the idea of being a business owner or an entrepreneur, and they haven't found that thing and they force something else. And it is evident on the consumer side and it is evident just as as an outsider, a fellow business person, and I'm sure it's evident to them and you need so much more than that. You know, the thing about band was that no matter what no matter what was wrong, what was right? How it felt, how hard it was. It was the only thing I wanted to do, and that's actually what it takes, especially when you're starting, you know, the first couple of years. It has to be your sole purpose for it to really, really work. Now. Again, you can also just have a side business. I mean, I had like a ice to sell prince online. That's like I said, prince the artist rest in peace. But I mean p. r. I. N. t. s. of some of my polaroid photography. That's I, it might still be up somewhere. There's probably a ton of orders Bank that I've never fulfilled. Okay. Kristen has a question, they girl our Christmas. I am an artist and I'm in the middle of a transition period where I'm trying to scale my business from selling mainly at art festivals and on Oetzi to really expanding to stores in a wholesale market. I tried this in the past but got burned because I was hand painting every piece and I figured out that trying to wholesale original handpainted art just doesn't work at least not for me. No, it's not just you, it's everybody. So I stopped doing it altogether. I recently found a local supplier at making my original designs into cut out prince on wood, and I want to start make marketing destroys again as a wholesale line. Do you have any ideas or advice for this? Should I invest the huge chunk of change to get into a retailer Mark or start by reaching out to shops in my. Area or both such a good question. And I'm actually really excited to answer this because breaking into wholesale was a huge challenge for Jamie and I before we sold the company. And we were making original one of a kind pieces. So we were doing essentially what you are doing, which was trying to sell one offs to wholesalers, which we we were able to do for a few, but it was really hard and there's no way as you have found and that everyone knows there's no way to scale that. So we realized that very quickly, and that's why we evolved out of that few things about wholesale. First of all, the wholesale market in general has changed a lot in the last year and I suspect that it will continue to change retail as a whole is changing. Brick and mortar is changing. The digital space is changing. You can expect that most retailers that you reach out to will want a digital elements of the, you know, a lot of times they just wanna sell on dot com. But I don't think that the market has reset and settled on that reset yet. So just be aware that you're sort of going into something that is a little bit tumultuous. I will say that I think there's something special about independent stores because they can like be a little bit more. I can never remember this word. It's not versatile agile. That's what it is in, like sort of respond to the changing market. So and I think with art too, I love the idea of, like you mentioned reaching out to local stores at, I think that's a great way to do it. I would not recommend putting down a huge chunk of change for anything that has to do with wholesale right now. I think getting you're getting the plans for your product in order. So understanding that if scaling the business means finding away to reproduce your art. Art or if you know, to appeal to a broader broader audience. Sorry for the answer to appeal to a broad broader audience. If it's like you have handmade products that you want to make more of an, you need them manufactured or whatever that is hover, you're going to scale the product piece. I would figure that out, get your costing right. Create margins that makes sense for wholesale which is different than direct consumer margins, because remember that a wholesaler will will want to Mark up your price too. So a much bigger margin that you need to create understand of. That's even possible because if not, you could just try and go the director consumer route and empower your own website may be taking it taking your work off of SE and actually just having your own dot com. But I would kind of figure out the full strategy before you invested any money, and that will also give the market time to settle. I wouldn't go into a mart. I'm not even sure that I would do trade shows. It's so hard right now. I really would. Just get a plan together, an actually see how viable maybe there's even like an actual business strategy person that you could talk to that could look at it in like let you know how scalable it is and then yes, try some local stores because see how I mean, obviously, the beauty of being in a store is is twofold. You get in front of a bigger audience than if you're not at a store and you also get feedback in understand if your product translates in person to people, which is really important. And you know something that I love a lot about being able to open our doors and have people come in and shop in real life, and I get to talk to them and see what people go to without being prompted and what they pick up and put down and what they actually buy. So there's a lot of information there, but I just wouldn't. I wouldn't invest too much I would I would. I would lean into the strategy part right now and. And then continued to just keep your eyes and ears pricked to see what's happening. They're always great articles being written about how how that whole market is changing. And again, can continue to think about what you can do to empower yourself and your own business. That's gonna be really important as things progress Rachel asks. I just wondered, how do you know when to give up with a chosen career path? Is it when you don't seem to be getting anywhere and getting the opportunities? Is that a sign that it isn't right for you, especially for creative slash freelancer, I think there's lots of ways to identify when it's time to move on. I'm a big believer on if you're on the right path. The opportunities do come because I feel like the energy that you're putting in you receive back and you will see that things become quite effortless. I, that's happened to me a lot on the. Flipside when things start to fizzle or feels neutralized or like there's just no energy around it. It's definitely a good time to look at that. I think the important thing is to always remain introspective and to understand is that not happening because of the energy and passion that you feel towards what you're doing and if it, if that is part of the contributor, why are you feeling that way? Is it because you're being challenged or you're not being challenged or, hey, this wasn't what I thought it was going to be an, I'm no longer interested, or is there something in the back of your mind that's like actually want to be doing this, but I'm scared to be doing that. I think that the tween thought and reaction there is time for introspection and that's something that we lose. We lose in in this fast paced world. We live in where it's just like thought, reaction, thought, emotion, you know, there's actually this space that we can create. Gate between those two things and and really allow ourselves to like dissect and think about an interest back and understand why we're feeling how we're feeling. And it gives us so much more information to to make a better call a better decision. The other thing that like that I found sometimes like I was a so as an assistant food and prop Saleh's for while than I became my own my own boss, my own prop stylist. That doesn't make any sense. I went from assistant to actually being the lead and I did that for many years and for many years I was incredibly fueled by it. And then at a certain point, you know, I just wasn't being challenged, felt monotonous. It still felt fun, always will be grateful for having those opportunities in that job. What a great career, an exciting and all that stuff and challenging. But that started to kind of pivot and it just it's like I had done everything and I just. It wasn't waking up as excited as I was. The beauty is it's like I was able to then like get into some art direction. And then I realized from there like actually, I think I wanna be the photographer, and I got into that. So if you're in a creative field or freelancing, oftentimes there are there are next steps to what you're doing. Either it's a step to the side or step up that may make it so that you're able to utilize the skills that you have, but continue to grow at through another position. And I've seen lots of people do that with a huge amount of success. So something also to consider. Well, thank you for listening. You are such a good listener. You really, really are. I will be back with more honor roll style QNA shows on mental health relationship self care. And honestly, who knows, I'm open, maybe we'll even get to do a live version. That would be cool, right? If you know someone who these insights will help, please share this episode with them. And if you have any questions that Email again is j. g. o. k. at bandeau dot com. Just put the category of your question in the subject line. Okay. Oh, and checkout. Bandeaus honor roll series, especially if you're in the LA area. And if not, we just launched a Facebook group called the honor roll networking group, and that will be a huge resource for you as well. I promise. Okay. Talk to you later. Bye. What do you know about the after show is the j. g. o. k. after show you don't know about the after show, but it's the show after the show after the show after the show the records giving after the show after the show where I'm gonna tell you a little about a new habit. I have. That's kind of a bear seeing. 'cause you're like, why haven't you always done this? I'm just stopped trying to sing now. 'cause doesn't sound like seen it sounds. So think I mentioned this before. I am not sure, but I got my level one. Ricky healing, atonement, Google it, if you don't know what it means. But basically it's the first step to becoming a healer. But also if you have Ricky healing performed on you, it's supposed to help. Anyways, that's not even what I'm here to tell you. I'm just saying that when I was doing that, the girl who was performing the attuned -ment was telling me like daily practices that you could do to help like stay clear and Phil focused, and she was like, do shower every day. Like no. I mean, some days don't sweat, so I don't feel like I'm not dirty and I've never been a huge lover of the shower does not to sit amid. Listen when times got dark. There were long periods in between showers. But like when I'm feeling good, he don't. Sometimes I don't shower. I definitely shower after leg leg fit Lek fit. But yes, another just go to sleep and she was like, it's really good to shower and like Slough off the day or if you're if something's not going right, and you can reset in just like explicitly eight in, you know, it's just ten minutes and be mindful in just like. Speak conscious of what you're doing in the shower, and then that's great. Anyways, it works. It just got out of the shower and I got those little exfoliating gloves, very satisfying each, put them on your like shower clown, and you rub Mullery your body and you feel so great. And then I put some coconut oil all over myself like a Slattery tropical treat, and then I just go after it. So I hope you will too. That's it. How great is it that I have this after show I can do whatever I want here by.

So I just want to say, you know for our full review cuz I'm I feel like I'm close now. I'm hoping then I'm closed but we're going to do a full like g i review we're bringing him back on his game yet. We're bringing it back. So we're going to do it for the Last of Us 2. So if you want like the fool, like spoiler-filled review just wait on that, but this isn't a bad place for that. Okay, so I have no idea. And again, this is for me. Just not seeing the ending yet. But for at least like the first controversial moments because we saw there pretty early in the game. I don't know why everybody was so upset. I feel like people have such a like an attachment to certain characters whether it's on the video game and moving this up and and granted like, you know, when you see somebody, you know do something and up, you know going away for whatever reason like, I understand like you may feel some type of way. But to say that the game is dogshit before the game even comes out because you saw leaks that you know ended up being true. I feel like that that's why I like I think me and you TBH we had the same reaction when we saw the first moment again, this isn't you know, this isn't going to be the spoiler thing, but we saw the first moment we were like like this is why everybody was upset like I was literally just talking to my chat and I'm like this is it like I I had no feelings about it like yeah, it sucked but Thursday. As you go further one through the story which again, I'm not at the end yet, but it kind of really like just makes sense why you know why that happened. So I'm just like, you know, like y'all are really just sitting on a game y'all like review bomb didn't everything just because like for mainly this one event that happened pretty early on in the game. I don't understand this mentality. I've always liked feel like you just needed to stop and so that that's like one of the first things I was just like why like, I I just have no clue why everybody just got so upset like that but wage talking about the game in itself. The game doesn't feel like it's the second part and and I feel like again I was talking to my chat about this like it really just felt like the last of us with five. Yes, there were like certain elements like being able to jump parade and being able to submit and and you know, you know new weapons or whatever and like the combat is slightly, you know a change. And in the day it really is like just more of the same which it isn't a bad thing. But I remember when they were, you know, initially doing like the the last reveal before the game actually came out like all like this stuff is cool. But like I kind of did once I ended up playing it I could understand why like some people were like this is you know, this is pretty mad and and like after playing like I like I can I can kind of see this intimate especially early on it again, like before you guys can get upgrades and stuff like that kind of made things a little bit better, but it ended beginning like it did have a lot of frustrating moments, but overall, it did really just feel like more of the same just a different environment, you know, a couple of different variants of of infected and then you have you know to new faction Faith you have in Fall before with the scars being I would say in my opinion. This is probably one of the meals like the scariest ones. I'm not really scared of the Wolves as much as I'm afraid of the scars on that first page. M or the seraphite so that was it I feel like the story from when I'm playing and then I hope and I'm getting really close to being done. I feel like it was dragged on our lot. Now this could be due to naughty dog kind of wanting to prevent anyone from having any theories about what might have happened in this certain event, you know years ago or month, but all throughout the game were like going to the present and then we're going for years earlier and then we're going to the president and then we're going to 4 months back and then we're going to the president and then we're going to days back like I just feel like they did that a little bit too much and again when I talk about, you know, they may have done that on purpose cuz they don't want you to you know, just be wondering what happened before this certain moment, but it kind of got old, you know, it was cool the first couple of times but I feel like they did that a little bit too much to try to just pad on the story like that. That's really what I'm kind of getting into here. I'm kind of just hired of like the 25-30 hour and more than go player stories. I would rather something be like eight to twenty hours. I feel like that's The Sweet Spot anything over there. I kind of feel like you're you just feeling it on T or just dragging it that point so that was one negative that I have as far as the story and then the end the game play is just pretty much like more the same a couple of new things that you know, Ellie and then Abby who you end up playing with in the beginning and then later on going through her whole story as well. That's really like one of the one of the only changes that I have as far as like my my critique on the Last of Us 2 versus the first one. So again, it just a lot of people really just hated the story choice because like when they saw their version event, they would like not like I'm just not having any more and in f a b like there by Julie own liquor no more on like a be but once you into a plane playing with her birth Again, you could kind of understand like why she ended up doing what she did was it right? I mean if you you know, really had an attachment to said character then sure but a lot of people just you know talk to Dad and just ran with it without like knowing the rest of the story you just all deletes and you just like, okay. Well, that's it. Like like forget this game. I don't want to play it have naughty dog. I'm just going to review with you being before I even get a chance to play it but this game is all over the place. I would say like either you really hate it or you really like it. I feel like there's really no in between with a lot of people that I've been speaking to a lot of people like that game is super mid. I don't like it at all and dinner people like I don't know what you're talking about like anal in swears up and down that he just like the greatest game ever and I'm seeing a couple other people say they're too like they just absolutely love it. They took of every play games and I'll go red grader. But again, he can't wait to talk about it. So, like I said, it's kind of really like know in the Middle with this game and it is dead. Tell me though cuz I wouldn't expect me to be like dead like everybody love for the most part The Last of Us. Even if you just like the multiplayer, like I feel like a lot of people just revered this game and they were looking forward to the second one down. And then when those leads came out, you know where you saw one thing or a couple of things going on with the story from the Lakes. They were just like nah, like I'm not fucking with it no more. So it just it just really crazy how we ended up and you know different people's opinions, but but my opinion not finishing the game yet, but hopefully getting close I don't see what the fuss is about on this and where everybody's upset. But also I have my own, you know critiques on the game play itself off early being super Innovative and then the story just dragging on it's like my my only like real negatives to this point. But as far as like just the overall story itself and again, like, you know the controversial motion, it's I don't see what the big deal is. I'm not going to sit on the game because of that, you know, it's funny is like as I've gotten older of starting to get more like into like psychology and I've learned that like most people have an emoji A little based personality majority of the world and like I think just from like knowing you from all these years. I think you have a more logical base personality J and I'm the same way and like whatever in correct. Yes, I feel like the guy who have a more logical understanding of the world. They will not have the same reaction to it is one of the things I'm glad I played the game for myself because like if you react the way that you did based off of the things that Jake he's talking about like the controversial moments. It's just a knee-jerk emotional response. But if you actually sit back and understand why some of those things happen, it's completely understandable and it's like it sucks, but it's completely understand. I wish I could get more into detail will get into it into the review or whatever but like for me I'm like wow, like that's what y'all was mad at in my opinion people should be upset that we waited seven years for this ship. I'm sorry, but I almost put this in the same bracket is Kingdom Hearts 3. We waited people forget the Last of Us took the lives of us came out on the PS3 that was two generations ago. We are about to go into the PS5. We waited seven going on eight years for this job. And what did we get almost the same exact game as the first one but the difference is the pacing is way worse compared to the first one and it's just a lot of fat and filler in this game. So it didn't even feel like a sequel it didn't even feel like the last of us 1.5 to me. It felt like The Last of Us 1.2. What was new in the game like, oh they got tall elephant grass. You can crawl in that was cool and you could jump but she jumps. I don't even know if you can count the jump. I don't know what was doing it like it was to say I was just playing it for the story. So I think the the pacing was was awful in this like the the people shouting about the sjw I didn't care about none of that. She doesn't care Delhi was gay. I didn't care about none of that should people hate a b which I can go into detail, but it's crazy like the Happy Parts. I actually enjoyed a beep rather than Ellie's part is the crazy part that first third of the game where you play as Ellie is Wolf. I almost uninstall the game. I didn't make it. I almost didn't make it through. I'm not going to lie like dog It's boring and I thought I was being an asshole but then I pulled up on ethostream and this man like he was about to die too. I was like yo, what is this sentimental? Bullsh it like in the first game at least like a lot of the sentimental shit was told that the gameplay and then walking and talking and going to different areas, but it's a lot of just Big Empty open world me getting lost not knowing where to go and it's like sure I could have turned on the little cheat mode. They told me where it took me where I'm supposed to go, but it's like no this is the default settings. This is what the this is what the game developers wanted me to play it has this is how I'm going to play it. I'm not for the play on easy mode. That should was boring. It was a big open-world but once a beach along and she had the big bazooka gun and the big biceps and shit, you know things started to turn up a little bit and it felt more like the last of the last of us one where it was like there was a better pacing of action as well as storytelling but that took the story was woo besides that one moment. I almost didn't make it. I will say as someone who beat the game. I think I think your opinion will change once you get to the NJ because I'm not going off. I felt the same way when I was like halfway 3/4 through the game. I was like, yeah, this game isn't that Innovative? But I was like, I'm still leaning towards giving it like a 7000 time beat the game and I saw the ending I was like, this is a v i was like that. So everybody hates the Apparently ending like really is what like people who are middle I've seen like even chaos has like that like I watch the chaos play and I've seen the ending through chaos and you could see him deteriorate like the further you get to the end of the game. You're like, what the hell did I just watch. And a game that Prides itself on being so fucking deep and introspective and emotional gave a very lackluster ending. I'm just going to leave it at that wage, but you on the outside looking in how how you feeling about a true Fernie? I think it was completely the whole Scandal behind it with the League's. I think it was completely blown out of the water I am In did a ruin the game play at all. Did it ruin a lot of the story? I mean that's debatable. But I mean it's to me I wasn't a big fan of the original of the firm last of us, but I can see what JG and you th have been saying that it just feels like The Last of Us Part 1.2. It doesn't feel like they really wage changed a lot of where they did an ad a lot for it to for it to have been seven years in the making it just it just doesn't feel worth it. Yeah, like when I think of like great sequels, I think of like the jump from Assassin's Creed one to two there was so much that changed in it and it's like they did that in the span of like two or three years and it's like you mean to tell me you had seven years and years stated the same exact game but actually worse because the pacing is really slow. I don't know man. Like I don't I don't and then it doesn't help that all these all these like websites were giving it a ten ninety eight and like people are entitled to their opinions. But like I don't know them opinions look real little spooky. I don't know man, and then there's the news that came out and I guess like Sony or like Naughty Dog didn't like the fact that one website gave it a negative thoughts and they were like take that shit down and I was like how you feeling about the game though, you know so far so I don't know. This is this is the first time I played a game where I'm just like I I'm playing it and I don't care like I don't have any hot take for this game. I don't really feel like I had gave me like feeling towards it. I feel like I'm kind of in Gigi's box was very logical for me to play the game. But like I just don't I don't have a connection with this game. I just don't I don't feel anything when I played it. I don't feel any sort of like engagement with the game. I don't find the story that engaging like I like I care what happens next like kind of what you said to the gameplay didn't really like Innovative as I hoped it would have for like a game that's been development for seven years just adding tall grass and stuff. That's basically been in games like Far Cry 4 years doesn't make the game in my opinion that much cooler. It just makes it like I've done I felt like it was a job. I felt like I was playing a game that I played in 2014 and I just can't I just can't wrap my head around like how they spent seven years and where I do see the seven years is like the technician Achievements of this game are incredible. Like I've seen a lot of the desk oranges. It's gorgeous. The animations are amazing the the capture the like the whole technical side of this game is a masterpiece. I will give it that way. It is one of the most beautiful and detailed games that I've seen for a single player game for Sony game at that like since like God of War so I Gotta Give hats off tonight out for that granted it cost them like helicopter in like a lot of their employees. I don't know if it was worth it for them. When I feel like they spend so much time on the technical side that they left a lot of things lacking when it comes to like the story when it comes to pacing I do agree with the pacing with your TV H and just bought like the best described is like they open the world up which is cool. So they made it more open-ended but like they didn't they failed at making it like how to radar to murder I think is like the best example of Rise of the Tomb Raider is a perfect example of doing it right where you turn your game from being straight up like a linear point A to point B, and now you make it worse like there's this open areas. We have more like area to like more agency to bring Then like pick your own path and stuff like that. But you're still going in a linear type pattern this game. I felt like it couldn't figure out if it was trying to be open world, or if it was going to get to overeat or if it was trying to do like the tumor your thing because in the beginning, um, like chaos is telling me that like the first eight hours of it. You're going to like it like it's good. It starts off good or something like that and then like in the middle then things start to like start to feel like it's just wasting time and then when you get to the end, you're going to be like just dead tired by that point, but like for me it was just two hours in like when we got to Seattle. I was kind of like in th I was just like bored out of my mind. I was like, so where am I supposed to go? And I'm like, okay, I'll use this song. I'm walking around this like dead open world. There's like nobody here. I'm just going from point A to point B to trigger these sort of events and it's just boring. It's just like I don't have any engagement. The best parts was like the scenes where what is like Ellie and Idina were like in the underground area and they're getting chased stuff like that. I thought that was cool. But like there's like there's so much down time that you have to slog. Route to get to those like high octane moments that I feel like we're really Ram packed and last us one that like to just feels like it just feels emotional this to me. I don't feel like there's any steaks for me. I don't really know and I've seen the ending and that could be it maybe cuz I saw the leaks maybe because I already know what it has some happens at the end and maybe that's why he doesn't see it yet. But I I know what happens at the end. I know what happens at the beginning. I just don't know what happens in the Middle East. Maybe that's what just killed my like connection with the game and I just don't feel anything when I play it. So so so it's weird. It's a weird-ass. I feel like it's boring because even though I enjoyed the Abbey sections like one criticisms I think is fair like I didn't care about a b as a character like they just kind of shoehorned her and I agree with that like care about any of them and I care about any of them and you know, the funny part is Kelly either when I was streaming it when I was dreaming and like the chat was laughing because like there was literally moments where I was like, I was predicting what was going to happen in the story and it happened it and like I was asking people yo, Fact I was able to do it and I was like I was asking much I was like yo, I was like what what are y'all they teaching you all in school? Cuz I don't know about y'all. But when I was at school in English, they taught us what how to write like a fictional story like what climax is not like you can predict most stories and I'm like yo like this shit is not that great. Like what is how is this attend when I'm able to predict what's going to happen game? I have a game tries to subvert expectation, but they do it in such a predictable ma'am. The only thing I couldn't predict was the ending and that shit was a disappointment. It's just like every like, I feel like this game does too much like trying to subvert your expectation and where it's like you think something's going to happen and it does something else is the thing that they decide on doing is worse. I guess it's not even better. So you're just like, why would you subvert my expectations for something that just is worse? I I don't know even a lot of people were like, it's weird cuz young people either seem to love this game where they seem to hate it. I'm still kind of in the middle. I wouldn't like flat-out trash this game, but I would say based off what I played if anything. It was a disappointment like this wasn't worth a 7-year wait time. This appointment I would say that yeah, I'm kind of I'm kind of in the same boat as as for for any here cuz I like I'm same way to like, I I'm home. I was Notorious notoriously one of the people that just never felt that last one was a masterpiece and I never understood why people thought it was like one of the best games ever. I kind of looks like it's all I would just like, okay. It's a solid game just you know, the storage decent but like the game plays very generic like I just didn't get it but I did love the multiplayer and I think that's slightly why I hate this game too, because there's no multiplayer in it and I'm still mad at night dog for scrapping it off or putting it on hold. Yeah. I mean the biggest Saving Grace of the first Last of Us is its story which you would imagine that would be the main focus of the last The Last of Us Part II but you know, I think the Last of Us 2 was an example of what happens when business gets intertwined with art, like let the artists be the artist like in my opinion. I thought the dog To the last of us one was great. It was a very it was a very human ending. It wasn't happy-go-lucky. It was selfish. It was like it was believable. It was believable in my opinion poll, but then like I guess, you know Sonia $90 so how much money they made they was like, you know, we gotta do it again. I thought they should've just left that shuttle on like it just like, you know, sometimes there isn't a happy ending just leave it alone. And that's what happens when you try to for something then we waited seven years and there's been like this crazy backlash or some people love it to have got less hate if it came out and let's say like three years ago. Yeah put it came out wrong. I think yeah. Yeah. Yeah, I think so. I don't think I think that the longer you wait the the higher the expectations are for things and it feels like I was playing a game that 2013 which that's the one the original one came out. Yeah. That's the main thing I was saying to when I was like she was like, I feel like this games outdated like like technically like looking at the game. It's beautiful for like playing it just feels I don't know. It just feels like I've played it 5 times already like games it just yeah, even like in the in the in the open world when you would find like Collectibles like the letters and stuff like wage from what I saw most of them didn't even matter. It was a couple of times where like you would read a letter and then an enemy would like pop out on you. So like a correlated with the story but most of the stuff it was just random notes just there. I'm like, why am I reading? It doesn't matter. Read it why it doesn't add anything to this fucking story. It doesn't do anything side things for world-building but it's like I already like I'm walking around even tell you it's oh man. Oh man. Oh, okay. I'm just going to say this. Now what I'm about to say, please listen to what I'm about to say. I don't need people in the comments taking what I'm about to say out of context and saying I'm stupid. Please understand what I'm about to say. It reminds me of Fallout 76 with Fallout 76 drops. It was a dead open world. There was like no NPCs and there was just a bunch of notes and audio files are all on the ground and the thing was about wage. Like with 76 was like I just didn't care about the world because like there was nobody living in it that I was like really like on-the-go communicating with and I think that's like the biggest thing is that last was one like you constantly ran into lived in people like every Act of the game there was like, you know, the the black brother and his his brother Point. Yeah, that's a good point. Like living people these different types of people. There was like the friend of jolt. I forgot his name. What are they having to Jessie the jealous boyfriend and Dana Who belongs to the streets like probably like yeah and like into they they like they shove a bunch of brand new characters at you that kind of feel like they're just there but you don't like you don't really feel like Jesse was like I was like, okay this guy I think is all right. He's cool. Dina was just like there and I was just like, okay. I kind of like the you know, but then actually playing with Dina home and to hate her the way that she plays she just she just irritates me every time I have to play with her cuz she just does stupid. Oh my God. The AI is awful awful. I oh I think I played oh you I just laid down. Whatever the that's why I always due for my first playthrough. I always play the game whatever like if I hit play and whatever that difficulty that sets the game on for me that the devs have decided is default. I'm gonna place like that's what I'm not I'm going to pick cuz I have no context of like what the game is if people aren't telling me Dena to make her more aggressive or like no no no no, no, no, no. No, this is what the developers wanted me to play and also in terms of the context of the story you understand why she was acting the way that she was but it's still not knowing. Yeah. Yeah, we we just when you figure out she's pregnant then like okay hurry makes sense about why she's doing all this like crazy stuff and why she's not helping that much and then I noticed it too cuz my chat did too was when I was playing the bat the flash sections Joel was very helpful. And I don't know just cuz they gave him a shotgun but like he was night and day difference. He was helpful in the in the flashback. She was yeah. And again, I feel like the stuff was on purpose that like wage honestly like Dinah's weaker than Joel and Joel has way more experience than Dina Mei, that's why they did that and maybe it's on purpose or if it's not and it was just a a I like to the programming problem or a mistake. I don't know. I'm not going to log. Which one it is, but like I still feel like it's a con like, you know, it's very irritating to play with Dina convert. I wish I could just had Joel the entire I feel I feel like we should probably I'm as if he has anything else to add to this because this song over here dropping minor spoilers over here. He's getting too emotional. Do you have anything else you would have for you is what I'm going to say anything spoilery. Yeah. I'm a dummy. Yeah, cuz I already knew them or pass me the viewers might not known that you guys called them last week there. You know, I'm good at like I said, I think we'll say the you know, the the vein for detailed discussion for the for the video that we do. So, yeah, I mean it's that's pretty much it. Like I think I think you all have on the point. So I'm going to wait until I beat the game and then I will revisit this on the video game will see if I feel the same can I will not part of that review so cuz I honestly I do not care about this is different is different authors. A new game has came out since the last podcast a new be our game from Ubisoft call hyperscape bunch of people drop down you fight whoever survives wins, you know b r but what makes this different is they reuse assets from Assassin's Creed you don't stop so it's it's a first person shooter. It's got a lot of Mobility. There's a bunch of different weapons in the way you upgrade them is worth you find one weapon you find the same weapon in that your fuse them together. That's pretty cool. They have different abilities like you can jump really high as well. You can transform into a defensive ball and jump high you could teleport you could build a wall a lot of different cool stuff interesting take on the on the BR. It's an alpha alpha technical right now. It's not even a beta. I think they're going to have an open Beta later how you feeling about this one? You does home. I I really like it. I feel like it's a little rough around the edges, you know, sometimes like every VR it's very can get very frustrating overall like out of all of your games. I played this is the one most in tune of what like I want I like I like to play for like a VR game. So I really like it's probably my favorite followed up by like five digits. So yeah, I really liked it for a full for full transparency. Say Ubisoft did allow me. I'm like a founder of game so Ubisoft did allow me to play the game JG to play the game a little bit early. So we kind of knew about the game and played it a couple I go like a week ago a week before everyone even knew it existed so long I think like just overall it was it was very surprising me and J G first thought when we saw the presentation that we we were kind of like shaky about the game, but then when we actually started playing we're like wow, like this is way different than what we were expecting wage. So it's a pleasant surprise say the least. Have you seen the hyperscape true for any played it I've been obsessed with the game today talk about it off. I love it. I think it definitely differentiates itself from the other Battle Royale games with the abilities. A lot of people hate on the viewer events. I think that's what they're called Hmong. Um, I didn't know that actual viewers decide on that. I get a pay stub to like a polling. So for clarification for the listeners like the streamer that's playing they can install an extension into their twitch streamer and then the viewers in the chat can vote on how they affect the game similar to the Darwin effect. So basically people can vote to add like anti-gravity or unlimited ammo stuff like that just to make the the spice it up for years. But yeah, it's it's it's super hectic. I will say at the beginning but I think once you get familiar with the game, it's it's very fun. It's you start to really dead. No know where people are coming from who shooting at you. It doesn't feel as active after like a couple of hours playing and what about you jack yummy. I'm pleasantly surprised with how long how much I do like the game. Apex will still like being rotation. That's going to be my favorite VR but I think they're hyper Escape at least four for our cruise. Probably going to be in rotation for a while back as far as like just something else that we can play a lion like the fast-paced abilities of it. Like just the fact like, you know, you really gotta put your foot skills to the to the test more like an arena shooter wage just to be our form all the abilities or cool like auto weapons. But I mean, you meet those already knew what we're going to be the metal weapons and yeah everybody showing out so long, I obviously there are some weapons and abilities or hacks that need nerves like immediately and they've been talked about like, I'm just looking at the Disco right now in in a lot of people have been talking about them because You know, they're always going to be those people that you know find the cheese and and they're going to exploit it. So I think that's a one of the more frustrating frustrating things. Just you know, what people found in a game what else? What's the strongest thing is what works and what doesn't and you know, when the end of exporting it then you know, it doesn't end up being the most the most fun experience but besides that stuff once they fine tune off of that and in terms of things that need to be nervous with some things around I think that it'll it'll have to be in a better game but I don't know everybody keep talking about like, whoa. Well, this is a game last and again, I don't know I don't have the answers. But if they can provide a good amount of of actual content, but during the battle pass or otherwise, then I think that they'll have a good job, especially for me coming out of nowhere cuz I had no idea that they were making a VR game until I was approached about it. So I think it's cool. Yeah. I like the the movement in the game like it feels like Unreal Tournament or quake and that. Those are my first PC games that I played Way Way Back in the early 2000s. So I like the fact that it's like a twitch shooter and it moves like that the verticality of it. Although one thing that I can criticize though. Like the verticality is sucky in it. It's like I almost feel like they should be default abilities because there's times where I cannot find the jumping abilities and when you don't have those you might as well just lie down cuz people just be on top of the building just shooting your head and because it's a b r it's very fast. You're not going to always find it because those are the abilities everybody's looking for but I do like the movement in the game. The guns are cool. The only thing I would criticise is sometimes it takes a little too long to kill people off. I feel about the Time to Kill. I feel like it's fine. I think it's fine. I think people just need time to adjust. They're so used to playing crackhead like level Shooters. We're empty. Our games were like you immediately get melted the moment. Someone sees you like war zone and like Apex has been like I I think that it just takes some adjustment. I think it's good because it does something that no be our game has done before which is in the early game guns don't guns can be a few like really quick and tell you if use them and get them leveled up. So it kind of creates a snowballing effect where initially unless like you get really lucky and you find like a gold one off Rip but you start off the game and everyone has like we called the gun. So you feel like even if you don't have a jump ability or some like that you feel like you can get away from fights off like the beginning so you don't ever feel like you drop you really just died and then I have any times another be our guys when you drop off and they like three teams are with you and they just rush hour early game. I'm talking about late game cuz I mean, like let's not act like you don't get to the end of the end of the game and like it's impossible to kill anybody else. And fucking 16s pull up on you and it becomes a klusterfuk and it become it doesn't feel like it's about skill. Like it just becomes a klusterfuk to me. I think I'm talking more in-game as frustrated let gaming help a bandwidth. Yeah, it's literally like every day are is like that the end the game cuz they pix is not like that. Yes. It is. It is just expands. You're like there's times like a Gibraltar all will drop and it goes fucking crazy. But for the most part of their gun fights I would argue is even worse because I mean just imagine if you do have like a white beater and you were facing all all red Evo enemies like you you'll get melted very quickly. There's a lot of things I think that like a lot of people are like getting mad about hyperscape that are literally like these things happen in every VR game and I don't think that like trying to like put them completely on hyperspace is is there a I think it's more of there are things that hyperscape does really good that hide the faults of like what b r games in general have a problem with mainly like orangy like I don't hear people complain about orangey that much about this, correct. Like Apex like I don't ever have complained to be dropping somewhere and being like I can't find like any way to defend myself. There's always like a way I don't ever have issues with like getting third-party din inside hyperscape compared to a page that says I can always disengage when I need to the only another thing that I I swear. This is the best thing about this video game and Nobby our game. I don't know why they don't do it. There's no longer that mistake where you're going to tell you there one hit and they lie to you that does not happen in this game anymore cuz you can tell exactly how much you see the health quality of life and I hope every even Apex. I hope every game ads need to have those health bars cuz you received like he gave me a telling me. He's one hit and I shoot him and he has like his armor back up. Like there's there's so many misplays that happen in VR games because you're given false information and off of off idea and you you just don't have that information you jump in in the next, you know, you get killed for it. So I think like just with the spacing of the game and how much information they give you and a lot of the like extra like the healing items wage. Down time by then removing that and just be like, oh, yeah, everything regions. You just keep going from point to point. It just makes the game fast. They just makes it works just like there's no or waiting around. I'm trying to find people I can't find anybody shoot at you always can find people that you can always move to wherever you want on the map. You can always out play players, but the drop system, it's all good. We me the like falling cuz cuz people driving quadrants like you can't just go to anywhere on the map and in the middle about it right now. I don't yeah. I've got a view about the yeah, I don't like a dislike. Yeah, like a little different. So just explain to the viewers understand what makes this different when you drop down like everybody drops down in different quadrants. There's like five teams that drop in one quadrant. There's like another five in another quadrant. So basically if you try to go to the other side of the map, it's a guarantee that there's going to be a bunch of teams on the ground. So it almost kind of forces you to land in certain areas and I don't know how I feel about that always like like there's no quiet places. Yeah, there's going to be no, you're not going to be able to just Loot and then go. Like you kind of forced always fight this on purpose. Like I feel like a lot of a lot of engaging me both noted. This is like, it feels like a lot of the design decisions. They made this game was to make it where it's like, you're always thought you're running around like octane 24/7 like you're constantly cracked. You're always like like hitting the speed like there's no downtime in this game. There's no like and that was a weird thing cuz a lot of the other big APR games a lot of situations like them because there's that down time. Where you can look at your chat communicate, but in this game like you can't you look at way for once I get you look at your chat for like one minute and you can get sniped you can get hit with an explosive a team could pull off without even really realizing it so I do agree with you t h on like I remember we talked about yesterday was like I feel like this is kind of going to happen with the same hand on Titan Fall 2, which is like the people who aren't good the people who can adapt to the games are going to drop the game really quick. Like they're going to get dumped by people who definitely this is definitely a high school game. It's a high school year of high school. He's going to kill it in my opinion might kill the game. It might make it worse like Temple only dog. Very people people don't like high school games. They like OverWatch. They like, yeah. It doesn't have a it doesn't have enough for a casual fan base to want to play it. I feel like the only way are like glued the TitanFall fiends the arena shooter fiends, like any any people who have history with those games that really love those games and like wish we had a time for 3. This is the best we don't get right now so long like those who are going to play this game, but I I find it hard to believe that regular casual players are going to cuz I'm not allowed this is I've been in Alpha and beta this this is hands down one of the sweatiest bettas I've ever been in like I'm like yo this game is not even out in these things is trying to go pro in this shit and it's like we were doing all right, we're able to compete with like I'm sitting here thinking I'm like, I don't know if the average person wants to play this game. I'm sure because Apex hasn't across play but they're going to have cross-play the moment console version comes out. So like this makes me feel that like, okay, maybe this game will sustain itself because of the Cross play a game. As of all the platforms will be connected and if it's going to be free-to-play right to yeah, you'll be yeah, they don't have a nice boost just from being free-to-play. I feel like the free-to-play and being cross-play like, I feel like I would I wouldn't go as long I wouldn't say it's fair to say. Oh this game going to die. I don't feel like this game is going to die at all. I'm saying that I'm saying if it does a lot of people yeah, I'm saying that like it might go through Apex patterns, like people are going to play it for right now just first month cuz you know, it's new is hot. And then after that really the people left will be the core audience and the one console players come in that's going to be that new burst of that second win. And then that's when you'll really be able to figure out like, okay, is there actually something here that can make it last so I just hope they redo the voice acting for a lot of these characters cuz they got they got my Cuban at Romano. They're talking like I know what kind of action do you think about the pay attention to see what's wrong? The stuff he says in Spanish like, you know, like I didn't know he was Dominican. It was like yeah Vinny guy in the game. And cuz I would keep saying it over he was like follow it to the people and also it happens so much. It's so irritating every quick weight off. I think also what they do with like the battle pass and like long-term like events will determine whether or not this game succeeds to we don't know what the game plan. The the roadmap is for this game. I got to see more like the base game is pretty good though. The biggest thing Ubisoft can do and Ubisoft cuz we know some of yall let me know y'all watch our podcast look check it out. If you want this game to be fired. Please do what we've always thought. It'd make that Cinematic Universe bring skinwise bring Rainbow Six Siege characters bring Ghost Recon bring my boy Sam Fisher. I'm telling you you put Sam Fisher in this game as a skin. I'm going to play it. They already confirmed the theory used Assassin's Creed Unity assets for this game. And like I said, like, oh, yeah, you can tell and I'm like, it'd be really dope. If this game was an abstergo simulation like that should be fired their training up Sturgill assassin wage. Every universe and like don't be afraid to literally do cross collaborations like as much as you can just like fortnite all every single IP you guys own even those old ones that you know have a very cold fan base bring them into the game as asking if you can make it with a off the same hit Bots bring them in the game bring Sam Fisher in the game bring in the Rainbow Six Siege operators bring in like Jade from Beyond Good and Evil like bringing them all in I'm telling you like that will help you like really like bring people back to the game when their favorite characters are introduced in the game. Just don't bring those stupid rabbits. Nobody likes them that you never heard of high birth shape and you want to play it. I think it's still going to like the seventh the beta so you still got a few days and I mean this podcast is going to be up to date anyway, so make sure to come to one of our streams cuz there's drops in a baby how you get access to the game. That's the only way to play it. You have to watch Twitch streams and make sure you have drops enabled eat. Those are JG have it. I don't but so go to eat. Those are JG stream and you'll be able to get a key if you just just from watching the game the computers change. Port so I got to say last but not least I got on the on the conversations. I don't think anybody's played this but me has anybody played in Jolla I have I'll go ahead talk about it. Yeah, it's a wage cute. I mean I was I was super hyped about this game just because it's free and you know, it had Nintendo I believe Nintendo is publishing this game. It's it's super fun. It's quick little like type VR matches, but it's all you know, ninja based attacks. My biggest critique of the game is the pairing system. It is full on RNG. It's basically a game of rock-paper-scissors. So it gets really frustrating really quick. But you know, it's it's a very casual game to play here and there. Yeah, if I give you some positives like it's free. It looks nice. The graphics are nice and also has some some dope character designs like you can make a dope looking black character. That's cool. But the actual gameplay this is a button Masher but it's a button Masher with R&G. Like you said like the counter system is asked like someone attacks you you press the counter button and then for arrows show up and depending on what you pick and they picked that person wins. I didn't like it. I was like, I'm good off this I think this game is going to die within like three months. I don't and then on top of that they be having server issues to it was literally trending on Twitter the day it came out cuz nobody gave the games like you guys hyped this up and wouldn't even ready to play it and it still has server issues cuz the few times that I've played it, I've crashed out of games and I'm like this is this is looks like they just reused the was it the page Splatoon assets and try to turn it into something else and it didn't it was kind of rushed. It's okay to renew his assets if they have to cuz I understand people are on budgets, but the product itself still feels rushed, which that's that's crazy cuz you need to do to make the assets that either eat those RJ to jump play the game. No dated Dave was telling me about it and he was telling me I should try to play with him, but I never had the time or energy to want to play it off because I looked at I looked at day-to-day playing and I thought it was cool. It looked like Splatoon with like kind of like what furniture like ninjas is that the right one pretty much gotta go like yo-yos. You got like the long form sort and hers and Hammer. Oh, okay. Yeah. I mean it looked unique and cool. I just I don't know if it was like necessary like a game. I want to play but I would have given it a shot at least half the time and just didn't have the time. You just don't want to play this free-to-play ethos. You just don't want to play this again. It's free on the switch off. So you're not going to play eventually. It's okay Nintendo takes Hills. It's okay. What's going on? Yes, utxjgthedon one-pass. Third of the Illuminati podcast and it's been no secret that we've all been spending a lot more time at home. And to be honest. I don't want it to feel like waste of time where all of my personal goals or throwing out the window. So what I decided I'm going to do for myself, it's trade in my teeth with candy clear aligners and you could too if you're anything like me unhappy with this mouth self-consciously photos. I recommend you check out candy Beyond delivery and clear line just directly to your door can do treatment includes remote monitoring by your orthodontist throughout treatment. That means you can get the same treatment oversight that you get by seeing the North to Dallas in person, but don't need to actually see the actual doctor in person all for a fraction of the cost and that's especially perfect around these times now unlike braces candid clear aligners are comfortable removable and totally invisible so you can transform your smile without anyone noticing the thing plus your treatment as subscribed and monitor remotely by a license orthodontist now unlike other companies candy only work for Saddam is dead. Original Road and is that means your treatment will be designed by an expert into movement with other remote clear liner options. You may never hear from another doctor at all as you go through the treatment, but what can be not only will your treatment be designed by an experienced orthodontist, but it also includes remote monitoring by the same orthodontist throughout so you'll never have to wonder how everything is going because your orthodontist God years. They want to be able to keep an eye on everything from anywhere planning a half hour special event. I did with my wedding. So I was good with candid your average treatment length is only six month. You'll start seeing your results way before then get started from the comfort of your own home and keep your life moving forward with the risk-free starter kit. So are you ready to take the first step toward straighter teeth out for a limited time. You can get started with $75 off by using kho GI and can decode desk and it took $75 off can decode. Let's move it to the news side of things. One of the biggest news stories that hit since the last podcast is a gaming platform mixer shut down. This was owned by Microsoft. It was a competitive folks. I'm Christina we're talking about this damn video started pointing. It's going to hear you guys going to hear that you guys are going to hear but they're going to hear the audio for a split-second for the articles that back in. My backyard makes the shutdown it got absorbed by Facebook. They said that they're going to try to match all of the mixer Partners contracts over on Facebook to the left of their abilities ninja and shroud got a big pay day. They from my understanding. They tried to double the money Facebook try to pay ninja double the money as well as shroud, but they didn't thought they had to buy them out. So like ninja got away with like thirty million shroud got like 10:00 and then and now they're free agents and they can do whatever they want. But was really was really crazy. About this story is apparently like there was no email sent out. The people didn't know months in advance. Apparently the way that the employees and the mixer Partners found out is the same way. We all found out through Twitter page violated all their Partners how you feeling about this Jay man is really messed up. Like I wouldn't wish that upon anybody you gotta at least warn everybody that you know, you would not do this at least a week in advance. If anything like for the majority of people mine is like maybe a couple of people at the top top of mixer and of course ninja in trial because they were notified off that it really sucks man. They really suck that, you know, not everybody was into know so everybody just lost their jobs and everybody was like that was really big like everybody was talking about it on my timeline. It was insane so it sucks but again at the same time, like if you've been paying attention to what's been going on with mixer formulae beam, then you would know that this was coming. We just didn't know that it was going to be off. All of a sudden Tears by especially after the latest thing that was going on which was racism in the workplace and mixer cuz that was a really big thing. A lot of people were speculating that this was the reason why which it was and it was really just due to them just losing the shit ton of money because they put all their money into a shroud and engine and a couple of other really big created several days onto it as I tell people like cuz I got Sprint and Sprint and T-Mobile merger just like happened like a couple of weeks ago. I got a text about it. I'm like look how long that took. I was like two big companies like that can't merge overnight. This page has been in the works for like at least a year and that's what's fucked-up about it and they just just sprung it on people had nothing to do better races and it was just terrible timing with the racism story. Yeah. Yeah. It was a terrible time and nothing to do with it. But at that point, especially with everything that was going on that was really distraught, you know, the last straw and the situation. So I think that was what prompted them to just you know, all of a sudden just say, hey we're going and you all can go with Facebook by like wage Like we don't even care but there was an article like I would say like at the beginning of the this year or last year that were saying that makes her like that they ended up having to fire a whole bunch of employees home. They had a small team as it was going into 2020 or the beginning the 2020. So so they were already losing money. And then again when you risk giving all of that money over thirty million dollars to ninja along to one person and ten million dollars to shroud alone and then I'm assuming like the other people may have got like a million or or five hundred thousand or whatever but it's still a lot of money to be shelling out on like what I would say like four or five really big creators and expecting, you know, a huge Roi return-on-investment because of that and within not have for me only I took only ninjas fans only Italian fans. Those are the only ones who really went over to mixer. We thought that it was going to you know, make waves and you know at the time we you know, we thought it did we thought it was going to do something but it really dead. Makes her with steel at the very bottom of the totem pole when it came to streaming. It was twist to it was only going to be at the top then it was you too because YouTube already had that Foundation who doesn't have a YouTube or who doesn't watch YouTube videos. We all do like at one point or another. So YouTube was already there. They just added a gaming platform. So they were already there Facebook already had a platform. So they already had all those thoughts ET just added a gaming platform and say hey extreme, we're here too. So they were actually getting this team to even though they were technically doing the same thing that makes it were doing they just weren't dropping know Millions upon millions of dollars. We know that they were already given out contracts to to a creative to go over from twitch or whatever else that you were on Facebook. So they were doing the same thing. But again, they had that Foundation it was a lot of people that cross streams to so mixer was totally different because they started from the ground up. Yes, they have Microsoft backing them. But you know at the end of the day they can try to throw all their money and you know try to flex their evening this everybody wage. What ended up happening it ended up still failing on top of you know, apparently the the toxic workplace that the actual employees were having. So it was just a lot. It's really a lot to unpack don't you know, I'm not laughing that mixer is going it really does suck because at the end of the day not only did employees just lose their jobs out of nowhere all the people that actually know put all their time and effort into mixer and wanting to be a big platform they had to go as well. Whatever whether you want to go to Facebook or do you want to come back to Twitch or just go to switch. If you start it on mixer like it still sucks at the end of the day and now twitching a booking YouTube like they're only three besides, you know trovo we'll talk about later. But but like what's going to happen now, we we really don't know like I feel like, you know people are looking for for something new home at the end of the day like if you wanted something new like why weren't you watching stuff on mixer? Like I'm going to made I didn't really watch mixer like it was just like that. I don't know why but I just didn't really find a reason to go home. A platform and watch other people, you know compared to me just being on Twitch and I did the same thing with YouTube or Facebook. I didn't really just go on there because I'm not on that platform. So I mean in terms of like, I guess I can really blame myself but end of the day for everybody else that wanted something new like why weren't you watching other people? I think my sister was missing a character like dr. Disrespect or something like cuz like the reality of the situation is shroud and ginger like they're just really good at games, but they're not interesting personalities and I feel like platforms will always be driven by personality-driven content Canadian body in here name like before or shroud went over there. Can we name like any viral personality on mixer moonlitewolf? I will be the only thing I do. I don't know. It's it's pretty crazy. But you know, I I hope that everybody bounced back. It seemed like a lot of people I would say like on Twitter cuz again, I don't I don't know about Facebook. I haven't checked over there yet for them that you know get they get their automatic Partnerships or on Facebook with twins are doing the same thing to which I don't I don't know why cuz they didn't have to but they did it anyways, but the people who went from mixer either back to Twitch Thursday, no from mixer to Twitch. There's you know, a lot of love according to a couple of people that we know we see in between the budget. So that's cool that at least Their audience ended up, you know, fully embracing them moving over to Twitch or moving back to to its with them. So that's cool. You know, there's some people were able to bounce back and and you know in a in a friendship with a talk about the hot take Yeah, well, I think is it fair that mixer Partners or Amelia games which partnership while there's a bunch of people waiting in a queue to see I don't think so. No. No, I don't think so. Cuz again Twitter need to do Thursday, that was probably the few people on mixer they were cuz there were mixed rumors have been over there a few times. I watched I would say it should have been a case-by-case basis. Like there are a few mixer streamers that I saw in the found that we're getting like a thousand two thousand viewers. Like I wouldn't had a problem with them being partnered on switch right away. But like the people who were hovering around the hundred marked like not like cuz you gotta keep in mind that like only a fraction of your audience is life over and if your average in a thousand plus then a few hundred are probably going to come over which can justify a partnership. But if you're only averaging a hundred like from what I say because I've been watching a handful these mix and partners. They've only been averaging like twenty thirty years. So like I don't think it's fair for the most part. Are they still doing whenever you fill out an application or they doing like if you already have a following on another platform like YouTube or Instagram or whatever? You get an automatic partnership still or do you still have a process because I remember and I think that's isn't that how you got it because you already had like hundreds of thousand people. I was always Partners as they were willing if you had a follow-up you could just apply and they would they would they would let you in. Yeah now if they're still doing that no, but if they're still doing that then that's fine. But you know, if you didn't have that type of following on a mixer or any other platform didn't know if like you should go through the same application process that everybody else does you don't you don't get to get fired from your job and then go to another company and get the same exact position like you got off work your way up there sooner seniority like Alex at the end of the day, but if you chose your before yeah. Yeah, if you really were worried about that you would just go to Facebook because that's again. That's your new employer here. So they, you know, they have an obligation to want you to go on their platform. That's why they gave out the automatic Partnerships over there to do that. So, yeah, it's like to see what happens but here's Stay with me because Microsoft has a pattern and I talked about this a little bit of my solo podcast. But Microsoft is one of the most profitable companies in like history, but the reality is let's keep it a buck here. The only they're only profitable because they own the windows OS which is a great piece of software. We all use it. It's all changed our lives. But other than that Microsoft does not have a great track record. It would products they have they have a pattern of doing something as a reaction Microsoft is not very proactive and Innovative in my opinion. At least these days what made Windows successful is it was Innovative? It was the only affecting system like it on the market and that's why it stayed number one since but since then they really haven't innovated. What do they do when the iPod came out the Zune? It was just a reaction it failed. What do they do when they saw the iPhone Windows phone? No action had failed. What do they do? When they see Google prospering? They made being who dafuq uses Bing. What did they do when they sought which was proctoring they made mixer. So it's like they have a pattern. The shit and they also have a pattern of reacting and then when it doesn't work for them, they throw it to the Wayside and that's why I would have never went to mix or unless I got to check. You're welcome that makes sense history repeats itself. Hopefully the mixer streamers, you know, get back on their feet. You know, there's that terrible Facebook you I oh, yeah, but you know, you think you think they'll trash being eventually they're going to get no they probably do a little keep it just goes there like at this point is just attached to Microsoft Edge and that's the only reason why I like you way you would use it because I you know, when you better what's the name since since like mixer crashed or whatever new website literally sprung up out of nowhere called trovo. It's a live streaming website. They say that I have a more Global Focus, but this website for those other way. It's called trovo. Live and apparently it's owned by $0.10 and this website. Literally, it looks like dog. Read like they copied the U. I like 141. What's this doing for? You eat those. I don't care. You want to you want to stream on this for any trouble. I'm looking at the numbers and age, you know, even some of the bigger creators on your barely hit the hundred fewer. Mark is just doesn't seem there's a big audience over there. Jay you think maybe you can number want to travel. Yeah, what was the name of that was on we were on a wild long time hit box hit box. Yeah. Mine's a hit the hit by we are bought out of that was a that was a european-based they streaming platform. So this one is a Chinese based platform. I mean China has a lot of people so I mean they have potential $0.10 like Loki is they're on their way to like running the entire video game world. So like I said don't sleep cuz since it has has their hands in a lot of things right now, so it's actually very funny that they decided to make a streaming platform. So we'll see them because if they were trying to you know, throw the bag get some people to the only get some people over there YouTubers say that they've been offered a back from from trovo. Yeah. So there you have the offer you two million for a 2 year contract you go down. Oh, yeah, China. Yeah. Yeah. Give me 3 I'll go over there and stream cuz I already got a long as it's guaranteed. Yeah, I feel that. I feel that that'd be very tempting very very hard to turn down. But I know we got to see money the only oh, no, man, you guys if you can flip that you'll find a way you'll find a way to make that work man, since he got a lot of money. That's a dangerous. That's a dangerous thing to like play with though because you know, they'd be censoring over there you get over there you get in bed with tencent you start streaming you say things on strength that on like wage you say something about China you can just make a simple Chinese joke and they shut your hole stream down. So yeah, you gotta I mean you gotta weigh the pros and cons obviously but a million man. Yeah, I do that, I'll be sure before many. I got a flip then I invest I wouldn't invest immediately Boyd give me that to me. I feel like I need that too. I need a five hundred thousand upfront advancement. It's not life doesn't change. I'll try to ban me I can escape with some money. Let's see. So the last podcast I played live happened, which is no there's no III so they did their life. Patient online some of the reveals that we got was I mean the updates already out, but the new update for Apex Legends they got they did a buff to Lifeline as well a bunch of other different characters. We gotta look at Star Wars drones that rocket Arena game was anything that stood out to any you guys during the day play live event. Looks amazing really talking about it. Yeah, I mean it just seems like it's a it's a shooter ride, but it's a first person type of you know flight simulator bought it. I mean, I just I love it. I like when Star Wars actually kind of does more things with starships and and things like that rather than just like the normal gun comes out and stuff. I like all that kind of stuff. Did you play Star Wars Battlefront 2 I did not know there's a modem there that lets you do the same exact thing as squadrons. That's what it looks like to me. It looks like they took everything off the Star Wars Battlefront 2 and just left like the the space mode Plus. I'm very much aware you were trying to do with skull and bones. Yeah. Looks like all the Assassin's Creed out of it and let the boats and bikes daily a new game. I don't know delayed probably. Let's go live in a mini W. This body was only worsening listen to like well, Just had a surprise announcement for for hyper escape and then they got Watchdog Allegiant, as well as Assassin's Creed and lets you know Ubisoft as a little light on staff these days. So I you know, they're struggling right now. Let him be let him be with the scale of violence. Did you do anything for you? Cuz you played a lot of Star Wars Battlefront eat those eggs do anything. I'm like in the middle. Like I feel like I need to play the game myself because I sucked that space combat. Like I just wasn't good at it. But I mean if this one feels better and I can control and I feel I could kill people in it that I mean I can give it a shot. I really want to try to VR but I just don't have a VR set the VR thing. That sounds really cool. They said it was we are going to be in it. Yeah, they said we are dead. One thing I did like is they said in the store you could play as a good or a bad guy always like when you have a choice like that, but it kind of just looks like they took Star Wars Battlefront 2 and removed everything and just let the space part. I don't know off. See what happens it could be fun third person to I don't like the that affords you the first person. I feel like I'm gonna get stomachaches anything. I want to play kind of worried. I might get my like my vertigo might kick in I might not like the game. But again, I gotta play it like it's not like I'm interested but I gotta play it before I really like want to invest my time. And so what do you think? Yo AJ, huh? God, let me play the game early bro. This guy is this do anything for you Jay unfortunately know like I was never a fan of the the space combat. So Thursday is going to be a note for me. I only know if I even want to try it. I probably won't you try it believe that everybody but it does look good though. I'll say that like those Graphics look fire, but it's just not my type of game. I was never a fan wage of space combat or just flying combat. Rocket Arena looked cool. They not going to be cross play too. I like it's coming out July 14th and days from now. I'll definitely try that when I log, It's going to be like thirty bucks too. So it's like why not? And then also I forgot they had Out Skate 4 is coming everybody the internet went crazy about that when it was trending on Twitter and I was like, I was the only one that wasn't Iraq like they didn't even show anything they could have here. I was like I play this game for like we've been asking for four years, but it's like I would have preferred at least like a teaser or a trailer something like they just said it's coming which makes me think that may not even in production like that should be coming out for another three years. They'd literally probably just got the green light from that morning you played games though. I mean, it's cool today, you know announces coming back after all these years cuz people yelling idiot for that. So but like I say, it's cool for them. Like I know that all this gay fans are happy, but it just it did nothing for me personally. It shows the danger could at least have some concept art. Yeah, we'll never be forgiven. If that game comes out and submit. Yeah, making people will that goes to show you the power of the voice of the consumer? I guess they did see all the people meaning and saying we want to stay for it and you could break them down and I need you to start demanding more Def Jam and everything NFL Street. Let's just bring it all back start the man to get internet off and start tweeting put it on the Instagram and the comments of the Twitter. Let's do it mean we're getting ready to make everything else. So why not really do games that remix? No, no. No. No. No, I'm just saying though. I was like, I'm not getting remade we need to get you know, some some continuation as well next-gen. This is a conversation. I wanted to have cuz people kept bugging me and my damn twist head. So I wanted to present the question to y'all. So the news came out that the next-gen version of NBA 2K 21 for the PS5 and the Xbox series X will cost $70 for the standard edition and people were just really upset about and surprised that there might be a price high club. Games, what's that doing for you ethos? I mean not much we kind of talked about this when the PS3 I mean the PS4 and the Xbox One we're coming out. There were rumors that even like to K back then and some other like big games do they were going to make their next-gen versions that cost $10 more than the previous-gen if people were freaking out back then and now to see that it's actually happening now kind of feels like it's been a long time coming like you kind of news is like riding on the wall. So I mean and I'll really have to take other than like ten bucks doesn't really like scare me. It doesn't really make me like, oh my God, I can't afford a games anymore. It's $10. This goes back to what I was saying. What are they teaching in school these days basic economics guys. Okay, the games have been $60 since like the early 2000s. So it's been like what like the last fifteen years and there's been inflation meaning value of the dollar has went down but on the flipside the production cost for video games has gone up which means contrary to popular believe they're probably not making as much money. Yes, there are anomalies like a and Activision job. I was trying to explain to people I was like most companies are not ta and Activision. Like I was trying to spend as like Ubisoft has been under hostile takeover four years a lot of these companies 8 ball in like you think they are and it's like you gotta stop looking at home is the standard and start looking at every other company and $70 is like like you just have to accept you're not going to be able to get every game day 1 and it's really not that big of a deal because we all know a month later most games fail, especially single player games. So like a month later you can play it. It'll be like thirty bucks. So it's like what do you what do you you work at a buy at day one? Anyway $30 next month? Yeah. It was like, I don't understand what the big deal is. If you look at the bigger picture of things what you think about the potential was not potentially will be $70 a day, but people are wearing it's going to be a trend that goes towards every other game. I mean if you have a problem don't buy it but what your wallet and it's really sad and and I hate this cuz I mean, we I'm not going to fault everybody because we do have Thursday. Younger audience but contrary to popular belief Man games were not always $60 when some of the first games were coming out even cartridges. They were actually more than $60. It was $70 and they took those charges. Yes. They were expensive they ended up going down because the production value ended up going down on the part. So this is not something that is new. Oh my God $70 wage. Actually you should be thankful that game for $60 for as long as they were because they did end up becoming the standard but if if it jumped from like sixty to like $100, I'd be right there with everybody I'd be like not but that's a nice job, but $10 an hour reasonable for inflation. Yeah, exactly. $10 is fine. So again, if you have such a problem about it, then don't buy it and you know, maybe we'll see things change but but games are becoming more and more to make so, you know, they they gotta get their money back. They gotta get profits from in order to pay their employees. So so these games man like the games are crossing over a hundred million dollars. Nowadays and yeah woman better graphics. I want 4K 30fps 60fps y'all want all of that. So so I mean it it takes a lot of monitors three gigahertz card. Exactly. Oh, you want all the day? You don't want games to take the same you want them to innovate and get better, right? So this is the you know, the compromise that we got to take man $10. Okay suck at the game is good. I'll buy it. Yeah, if anything, I think it'll add more value to a game reviews. Now if there's going to be a price hike like really start paying attention and don't just listen to one person listen to a bunch of different neat to see if there's a common common things being said cuz there might be some truth to it. Just don't you know, what what your wallet how you feel about this funny you think 70s do much with you? I think I think it's pretty fair to be honest, I'm comparing it from you know my experience I've done you know, I might hit my background is filmmaking. So like when you think about filmmaking that costs a lot of money movies are expensive dog. That's just only you know, a story and with cameras and actors when you think about a video game that takes a hell of a lot more resources and just a movie and it's not just a story that you can watch and wage or two hours. It's dirty our stories. I mean, it's it's it makes sense in my opinion and like you said like almost Blu-rays college now twenty bucks. I think that's one thing a 20 21 bucks. Yeah or for like, you know, what I guess that most like for a really long movie like three hours away. So it's likely when half hours two hours. So you came there for that like just wage compared it like a thirty-hour story even more more much. I can you write a page and thirty our story like, all right, not only stories mechanics, its engine. You got the game building the world. Yes. It's testing the game making sure it's not buggy. Like there's so much that goes into game development. I don't think I don't think I don't think people appreciate developers enough for the work that they put off. They put on and you know fraud should be ready to to crunching. Like I'm like, I know that for the past couple of years like that's been a huge topic about a bike game crunch, but I kept telling people when we talked about it the first time like this would be going on for decades people. It's just really becoming the thing because people are talking about it now like the people who actually working on these games they're talking about it, but people then crunching to make these games. So for you to complain about, you know, $10 for the people who has been a t, you know, ninety a hundred hours a week. We are not talking about the two week. Like I work forty hours a week. They are working double that I think this idea about game development where it's like a bunch of nerds just sitting around on bean bag chairs throwing like a stress balls at each other and eating pizza and just joking around and maybe doing a little coating on the side like these motherfuckers are a hunched-over computers worth. In eighteen hours a day though. It's not they're not they're not eating healthy. They're not seeing their families. Yeah families break up because of it just entertaining a little scrawny young get the fuc outta here, but there's other knows but shame on the people that were fucking sitting invoiced death threats to the lady named Abbey in the last of a shame on y'all. That's what should we be talking about. That's just not cool included in this hockey Behavior. Like what what everything is coming out bro, even the fans the fans are super wage to get a video game Community. I don't understand it. So just expect it is what it is, you know, I can be able to play every game day one, but you'll be able to get a deal somewhere down the line back on for $60 games. Oh got you, bro. Yeah, it's a visor won't be $60. Wait. Here you go whenever you go by my game king of birth. Negrodamus being able to speak things into existence Nintendo has been listening to the podcast cuz for the last five years we've been talking about they should make a Pokemon mobile and they just magically announced one Madden. Oh, where what does do either of those? It's got Pokemon you like by the way people that got announced boy. My notification box got destroyed with like hundreds of people picking me say so the podcast they listen. You should hear you. Yeah. I mean we've the thing that's weird though is I'm surprised by the backlash. Like I people didn't want this. So yeah people are really like, I don't know just cuz I didn't even know the event was happy they were doing a direct but I guess we were expecting like them to do some like Johto region. Let's go game or something and they're expecting like a Mainline Pokemon game at my bro Pokemon. So she'll came out last year. Why are y'all expecting this from I just peeped incentives making this game? I'm looking at the trailer. They own anything despite where they don't everything. Hey what makes me think they actually listen to the podcast if you pay attention to the Traeger. Charmander turns into Charmeleon many turns into fucking Charizard in the middle of the battlefield. I'm like yo, that's exactly what we said. They should do 11:00 at the characters cast episode that Leo was a royal palm, right? Yeah somebody that's right. If you if you can put in the chat what episode it was when we talked. I know it's like at least two or three it was back in the Wii U error cuz like people were sitting on how bad that you were you were at was and we were talking about how he come back and I remember I brought up over over. I'm trying to matter what episode it was maybe 2014. I think it was 2014, but that that right there like, oh my Lord, that would be a big thing right there. If I can get one critique to this though. It looks like they might have showed this a little early cuz like the frame rate was a little shaky and it looks like our early build like this is something they just started working on. That's the only thing I would maybe they shouldn't have shown it right now. What polish it up a little bit but I'm excited to play it. I want to play a Pokemon mobile. What about your fuck? All the rest of you often play? What about your friends? And then they said it's going to be mobile and Nintendo switch. That's lit. Yeah, that's great fun job. The pleasure ship. Yeah, I started PC gaming when I started playing PC on PCS all legal Legends. So I'm all for this. It looks amazing you already in the right home then over that cross-platform save as well as cross-platform play cross-platform. Yeah, that's fine. I remember they said it was cross play. That's far they come in for the mobile market. What's his door for you? J. I mean I thought I did I actually asked my chat like when it happened I was like why is everybody so upset at this? Are you upset by this? Yeah, when yeah one person told me was like you not in the Pokemon Community JG. You don't know what you're talking about. I you know, like all right, bro explain it and he was like he wanted we wanted a Gen 4 remake and I was like, why do you why do you keep wanting Pokemon remix, what what was wrong with the lads when they just came out there like Jennifer was so far here. We like all the Pokemon. We liked the story and we just wanted to remake I'll say all right, bro. You got it. I like I'm just going to take it as I just don't understand why your dog Want to remix I like why don't you do go and place the old games and they were like, it's basically unplayable with this point. I was like, okay. All right Fair wear and say stuff like that. That's another example of how I realize that people don't understand business wide. It doesn't make sense. Like Nintendo wants to tap into a new market and if they can take their license of Pokemon and tap into the mobile market that's potential new customers that never even gave a fuck about Pokemon. They just wanted to play off a mobile. So it's it's about appeasing the current audience as well as trying to businesses always about trying to acquire a new audience always trying to find a new mind and also what if Nintendo is just not listening to all you people who want to Gen 4 remake because they realize that that Court Pokemon audience is full of pedophiles and they don't want to listen to them. You guys don't have good ideas Yeah, clean your community. How about that? All competitive players and Jake Pettit of pedophiles us out here giving maybe I'll play a mobile game. I'm ready to play another mobile not given the top down. You know, I'm typically not a fan of the top down mobile home. Would rather be third person if they really want to make your time to play Arena of Valor on the switch. You can play on your phone to it's available in front. I would say try it. I don't like the top down either but I do like Arena of Valor home. It works really well in the switch on the phone as a top-down cuz you when you control with the analog stick, it just feels different. I realize I don't like the clicking with the mouse on the top down but it works with analog sticks for me. Okay? Yeah, not you say my name might feel good on this wage. So like I said, I'm going to try regardless and you know, if we really get into it and that might be another game that GI platoon rotation. So I'm excited about it. I'm happy to eat those finally right five years later. Look at the look at the probably go. I was like work when you watch it directly as soon as I say a Pokemon unite and they said there's a mobile say, all right, I'm tuning in now. Let me see if she is about the irony of the games go Pokemon United divided the community. That's great. Like she does a YouTube video song. Like oh man, you can't you can't please the Pokemon community no matter what you do. Yep, they going to play it. That's that's the funny part. They still going to play it only that shit. They also announced a Pokemon Snap during their direct. That's what I didn't know. How may I direct either I just woke up and it was trailers just sliding through now, I mean, but keep in mind it was around the time that he threw you're supposed to happen. So it makes sense. Yeah, is this new Pokemon Snap doing anything for money? It's I love the first one. I mean, it's it's a cult classic at this point. I mean Pokemon that looks way better than the mainline Pokemon game. So I'm buying that first day off for sure. I am too. I hope as cooperating so you can like compete with friends. That would be far. Oh, yeah, that'd be that'd be tight. What about you eat those? I never played Pokemon Snap you missing out lose that everyone tells me that I just didn't find, you know taking pictures of people people the artists and another night. What about you J. I mean I'm kind of like those like I did play it like the demo stations or whatever, but I never played the full game. I never even own a 64 for the longest like it took me a minute to get it so I wasn't super into it. Like I was Pokemon Stadium Pokemon say does my shit but Pokemon Snap, like I just really wasn't I wasn't the biggest fan. But yeah, but I understood it like why why people liked it though. So like for all the people that did enjoy like, it's cool. I just like like raised to see like what else they'll do to innovate besides just thought, you know, make the graphic better because it's almost which now so it's cool though. I like the announcement. I'm glad that they finally decided to make a new Pokemon Snap. We should have gone in Pokemon Snap to with that do pokeballs freaking the tendo. Am I like I enjoy the game but like I don't know just doesn't like a $60 game. I mean, I feel like it's like a $30 game. Yeah. Yeah, and it goes off. I don't know just something about it doesn't say sixty but whatever PlayStation VR this was interesting. I don't know if you saw this but Sony filed a patent to where they'll be able to display ads within the headset off. When I ask what the fuck is according to the patent. The way the advertisers will be displayed depending on the position of the user's head within the head-mounted display. So if you turn left or right you'll get to add left or right the patent describes the advertisement additional content for promoting recognition or a given thing or service. So you guys excited to first of all, I think this is really funny that like vegan hasn't even taken off probably never will in my opinion and they're already trying to find ways like monetize it it's like you guys should probably just make some good games if you want people to buy it cuz I'm I'm I forgot because we are existed does anything I'm going to be happy or e r i got a HTC Vive that I use maybe two or three times and like that shit kept giving me a I don't like the idea that I had to have a ginger ale on standby after I play my games like it kept giving birth. I'm a cake. So it's been talking to Salman. I'm the only one this planet heavier. Yeah, gross. Yeah, I forgot PlayStation 4 I was even a thing cuz they don't support their their platforms. Remember the Vita. Yeah last night. I saw that was in the last of us off and I I have a real deals that I want to I want to ask him. Does he still play? I know the answer is no games. Why waste of money on a musically finally. All right, bro. I mean another month to see if you still planning. I just wanted to put it out there. If you do own a PlayStation VR do not be surprised. If you see some big booty Brazilian porn ads while you play Crash Bandicoot or whatever the fuck y'all play on a lot of these will be targeted as that. I didn't explain they just they just filed the patent in terms of being sucked into it. Yeah, like depending what your eyes are seeing, you know, they'll advertise that shit. That's that sounds weird. Yeah. It's very invasive, but I would imagine they probably take the data they collect from Like PSN and then let's say your plan to K20 with a headset or something. They would promote to k21 to you on the left side or something. It's not going to swing. I'm super weird because nobody has one in the first place. So why would they even file a patent for this? Like are they trying or they try and like a revamp? Like you people actually buy it. Maybe they'll really try to push it with the PS5. I don't think it's going to work but we're home a brick trying to make this your life Ready Player One For Real. Yeah. Yeah. I'm I'm good off of that though. There's a Iron Man VR game came out just recently so hm. Yeah, you're going to buy it. No. So are you talking about it? I'm just letting people to check know cuz you were talking about making good games with Tony Crash Bandicoot got announced Crash Bandicoot for it's about time it's called what's that? What's that doing for you? Aquatic red banner cool fans is fine. Cuz they have been cheating it like even though like you may not be the biggest grades Bandicoot fan. There's a lot of people that are I'm sorry for the Crash Bandicoot fan you have bad taste in games are so many better Platformers. It's the solid stain in my wife had bad taste in case you love crazy man. How does that make you a bad person? But I want to stay at home and tell her go ahead and tell your boss know I'll be put it like I said with the people look rabbinical regardless of what you're saying sir, you know Crash Bandicoot has it all deance. So people were looking for jobs. I remember like it when it was either. I think it was like the games award show. I think like one of the one of the main people PlayStation like you had on the Crash Bandicoot shirt and everybody got like super excited. They were like, oh my God, are you going to announcement and then they did it and then finally at the at all these years now it scares. So, I mean, like I said, it's cool. It's good that they finally, you know, wringing it out and they're going to do it. But hey song Well, I play it probably not but it's cool that it's out for everybody else to enjoy. Yeah, I'm only playing it if somebody donates it. I'm not buying this game. I'll buy for my page cuz she she actually I need to get her the the little remaster thing cuz she been begging me to play it. So Fernie ethos is doing anything for y'all. Nothing nothing like me. I'm off the stage and most people in that Crash Bandicoot fans and I respect that cyberpunk got delayed again. This game not going to eat those this game is shining a little kingdom hardest she might come out. Okay. Well, I see it as believer for me seeing his brother who I believe it's not busy. We just need a little more time to work on the game on delay. That's cool, too. Yep. Like what are we on? Three four or five? Okay and a little kingdom heart. Is she I don't know. I don't let them cook brother trying to make the game of the year and just page Adam For It Go gameplay. They did during the live stream. Yeah. Yeah when I was not on the show knows I did put it did you really? Okay. I didn't see that. I put I said plus new gameplay home. Oh, okay. Yeah, you can't read what do you do for you? Cuz they didn't do nothing for me to be honest everything for me, bro. I took it all the right spot. What specific did you see that like intrigues you? What what did you see? I didn't see anything. That's the thing. Oh, yeah. I watched it but I didn't see anything that I hadn't seen before that like really intrigued me was just kind of walking around driving. Did you see all the new game play game? If it felt like they would focus more on. Yeah, but it still felt like they focused more on just kind of showing the world. Yeah. It was like it's beautiful good mode, whatever. What do they code the Batman mode off? Yeah. That would yeah. I forgot the name of it. But I like kind of being a nerd in a huge. I don't lie Fanboy for this game for this game to come out. I watched like four different. I watched Pegasus thing. So he had like a whole 40-minute video about his experience played it I watched whose like a lot of I watched hers and I watched like two other people's like Impressions off of playing the 4th or I guess play session of it and basically everything they say like everything they say about the game is just like exactly what I wanted. You know, RPG game has like it seems like it actually goes far off the mass effect. So the so you know how a mass effect. They had the in the beginning there was like those three backgrounds, right and they kind of like steer the story at certain moments where like just your background of who you are a Shepherd before the event log. First game so in this game what they're doing is they're actually making it where whatever background you pick will actually determine what you're doing in the first couple of hours of the game. So if you have like a like a corporation background or a street like a street kid type of background, you're going to be playing two different like intros of the game until they all Collide. It's like the main plot of the story. I think that's going to be really cool down overall. I mean the game looks great. I've definitely like I did hear like it needs some bugs as polish. I'm like, okay, it needs some bugs. No, no, he needs to fix the bus home. And so there's definitely some bugs that need to be fixed and Polished like that's what some people who played the test thing and they're like, okay, they're like, oh, yeah, it definitely feels like it's it's near that completion point, but they definitely see why it was delayed cuz they're trying to get all the bugs of the massive game. One of the biggest things that I heard was that it's very detailed like so being an open world game. It's actually very dense. There's a lot of people walking around there's a lot of birth. Things that are around the world doesn't feel dead to them before doesn't feel dead it basically it's on all the Hallmarks. I expect from a CD projekt game. So I feel like this is going to be another Witcher 3. It's going to revolutionize what we will be the opposite of what I felt playing last to do I feel I feel like it's going to be like somebody like like it anytime I get to slander person but no I'm just kidding but there are people who just don't get it. There are people that understand but you have to understand I'm a huge RPG person massfx my favorite game this game. I'm a huge cyberpunk fan like a loved Bladerunner. I love Ghost in the Shell like this is like for me is everything that I love all the mediums that I love and I really enjoy all put in one game. So that's why I like I'm really excited about this game and it's so far it like it has impressed me every single time. I send you stuff about it. So long delayed it. It's hard to go ahead. No, I'm sorry. Go ahead. Do you think they delayed it? Because they're just waiting for next-gen. Yeah, so leave a brother that argument I don't I don't think so. I mean they could but like they already made the announcement that like if you buy the current conversion you can upgrade to the New Gen version for free you don't have to pay money for that. So I'm like, I don't really see the monetary like advantage of pushing back for next-gen if they were like we won't have the next-gen version ready by launch or something. So I was like, I don't really think that I think it really is just plug fixing. That's what I really believe. But I mean, what do I know? I'm not I don't work for them so I could be wrong. I'm saying like this game will be trashed and then I just didn't see anything that got me to give me any more exciting than what I already. Am basically is all I'm saying you already pretty excited to start with right like it's like a site but I don't get hyped about anything but I'm still excited about it. I didn't see anything that blew me away for me. I don't really get excited anymore about anything. But like this is the only exception this is the only game I really would even say I was ever anticipating for the past couple of years. All the other games just was just like whatever I like it cool down in the TitanFall game, but you know that might never happen again. What about you Joe? Yeah, I mean like we mentioned the fur at the like the last one I got delayed. I've got a bad at this over like this. She was supposed to come out like two days before my birthday. Like that's just about to be amazing facts about a few days after my birthday. I mean, I'm I'm not I'm not yet on the conspiracy way that the th is about the game not coming out. I think that they will eventually come out but like I said before the last time CD projekt Red, they know how to video game Community is going to be if this game is not perfect. They may have found like a game-breaking bug it may be something else that needs to be polished. It's something we know it's something they want this game to be absolutely perfect when it comes out. So if it's not broke they going to keep delaying it until it is because the way they are going to get eaten alive if something is broken or not working properly, so that that's my theory. I don't I don't think that is that is that they're waiting on next-gen. I just think that they just want the game to be a birth. Perfect have no glitches. No game-breaking bugs. None of that stuff. Hmm be a Last of Us 2 they can they be right there being held to the absolute higher degree right now. Like that's I don't know how they got to that level of respect like just overall with everybody but that's that's how it is now. Yeah, but can't wait till 27th until it's released actually plot was you had to be from the future to actually play it. I will know it always has and all y'all on the timeline like all of all hate and I will gets out now don't know y'all bye y'all wait till 2017 play the game optimos. I just hope it's Uncle bars. I hope so too. Cuz that'd be the that's like with the game was great and should have just blowing PCS up. Like I remember streaming was a Batman Arkham Knight. Those were spooky to every day. I never knew if my PC was Survivor that she knows who that's enough Minds as hell. You know, what your 32 West you don't forget what you thought it was playable what you're free was playable, but it was an optimized it had problems. It wasn't intense. It was a very intense game. It was a very high demanding game, but it it was it was playable. I do agree. There were moments. Where was you know, You know, it's funny. I put this on the notes. Did we talk about the PS5 revealed last podcast? But we did know we didn't I we didn't make fun of the rock. We were trying to we were trying to wait on it and then it got delayed cuz I know I put out a video some people kind of have a general idea. Like I mean we could touch on that real quick. Did you have any thoughts on that? Look at the PS5 or any of the game they revealed for any it? It's going to look amazing next to my router. I mean right on my TV stand it's going to look great. But I heard that it's busy just based on the disk drive is going to be a huge system. Oh, yeah. They said they said they show like a picture of how big it was. They also announced that there's going to be a 3949 version a diskless going to dispatch virgin. Yeah, right that that's all that was that was that wasn't confirm. My bad. I don't believe that that was my idea of a YouTuber. He got me those damn YouTubers life. What would you think of the PS5 either just I didn't hear the games with the games are cool. But nothing that maybe I have to pick it up day one. So I'm good off that Demon Souls not de one. I don't think it's called a one. Yeah, is that a rematch like a part to maybe those you must have been like that's because it's a Dark Souls game and because that was the one game I could never play cuz it's on PS3. So that's why a lot of people are excited for like I'm not like let me phrase like I'm not like anticipating it like when it comes out. I'm going to probably play cuz like everyone tells me Demon Souls is like off a gym and I've been really excited to play it. I just never had the ability to play it. So that's why I was excited to finally play and to see the graphics and stuff how like they they actually like they didn't just make a a port update like they legit re-met like there's a lot of new stuff and it's like all the graphics have been remade all the new assets and stuff. It looks great. So I'm excited to play it but like, you know, it's it's another it's another torture game. So, you know, I got to get my birth. My pics and what was the name of that game with the damn minions like the Pikmin it was like a platform that game looked fun. Indie game know it wasn't an indie game that should AAA is for for any game you made that it might have been not on a the Ratchet & Clank Wood-Fired to the Miles Morales game. Although that's that's that's a PS4 game. Right? It's coming PS5 but I mean, he's pretty stupid for them not to put it on PS4 they confirm whether or not it's just deal is that game? That is a stand-alone game was the sequel flight and like off the Uncharted 1 if it was first light was DLC. But it was like a stand-alone game like like you could buy it by itself. Right? Like you wouldn't need. Okay better example, like Uncharted 4, you know that little deal see that came out with the two girls. That was like the stand-alone game using black. I played on charted wage. I thought you would know about it at least the one Chloe and I forgot the black girl's name cuz I never played it or I mean I didn't finish it because it was boring exactly. That's why I watch your mouth wider play off. My dad was about to say anything you saw J Peters five of it shit. I forgot cuz like damn it was like for like it was so long ago, but it's just things that I did the idea like, but again, July everybody else like we were wanting to at least see the price and we did not get that. So we're still waiting on confirmation from Sony themselves to find out how much the damn thing is going to be so we can only speculate right now. Everybody would just like so upset because like, you know, there's always going to be surrounded us going to be $100 and and other people like no one's going to be like 300 3.99 or 4.99. But yep. Think the idea of flying fish besides obviously the the design of it cuz it does like something straight out of alien where they they get their flow like for real. I don't know what the what the idea was behind that design. But just the fact that they're going to have, you know, a dispatch version and then completely dis list version. I find that one very very interesting because we've again her rumors of the next gen consoles wage being, you know, completely dis list and just being downloadable content which I mean I've been doing anyways, I've been it's been a while since I've got a physical disk of anything but I I still have other question. How big is that hard drive going to be or the hard drive going to be different sizes. If you get the dispatch version of verse of the Des live version so there will still question that's only just has yet to answer. So hopefully we get those soon so we can get a better understanding of you know, what type of product that will be buying but doing anything else. I'm not getting a day one like unless there's something really really really good that that's going to make me want to buy it, but I didn't see anything that's like that like home. God just it was really just like Spider-Man for me to be honest that I was like, okay, like that's cool and probably some you know, a couple other things but then again, you know, they pulled the veil over eyes cuz some of those things that they announced were were multi platform parents on the exclusive so and half of them aren't even coming out until like 20 21 22, right right aren't coming out until a year or two down the road. So yeah, so, you know the the same old song and dance. I mean it would just it would just really just PlayStations own little III presentation type of thing cuz you know how that is like a lot of games that they always show aren't even in development or super early in development and you'll be out like two or three years later. I have a feeling that they're going to reveal the price of the PS5 after Xbox reveals their price. They're just sitting there waiting trying to undercut the competition see what they're going to do their jobs. Also. I have a I don't want to say it's going to happen, but I would not be surprised if it launches with a disc in a discourse version and then that disc was version is for people who to be early adopters who are comfortable with their internet connection and not dead. This is whatever but I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere down the line they phase out the disc version like three or four years down the line and like they just came out with a digital-only with a really big hard drive and like that becomes like he's dead people into it versus like what Xbox tried to do back in the Xbox one generation when it first started when they were trying to do all that DRM should ease people into it. I think people would be more receptive. You know, I am but here's five. It was cool. We'll see like I say that price last thing I got on my notes is The Gaming Community has been on fire and it's been a higher because for those who have not been paying attention, if you don't have a Twitter it started with some twitch streamer. I forgot is it honestly it's been so many accusations. I forgot the original person that got accused but it was something twitch streamer. He got accused of sexual assault. They know to raise say no to rage started at all. And after that a bunch of women got the courage. Yeah. That was the one that started it like two weeks ago wage. A bunch of women got the courage. I sort of God has been over like a hunted accusations left and right in every part of the Gaming Community from twitch to the fgc and it's gotten so bad that Evo ended up shutting down first and foremost if we could just briefly speak on all the all the foolishness going on in the community JG. You're like our whole political morality guy here in a Wal-Mart. I remember that DM I got from the from the owl. Oh, yeah. Now I got I got mad comments on my video me yesterday cuz I was talking about some of this stuff on stream and people were calling me a simp and I took the blue pill and all this other shyt and I like I guess I guess cuz I don't want women to be raped I guess. I'm I'm a Sim I guess whatever that's crazy. But just talking about everything because literally like today I'm looking at the the Discord that people are talking about even more smash Community Play Store yesterday is Lillian do have been a new story every month. The one on for like two weeks already. So it's pretty insane. I want to start by saying I am not surprised by anybody who would being outed because the video game unity just like every other community as very toxic mentalities. Not only when it comes to, you know saying racist things but when it comes to a lot of us men suck and how we saw the women because in like just because it's a social media whether it's YouTube twitch Twitter, you know, you name it like it's a lot to do with it. Just don't know how to talk to women wage know how to interact women we go to all these events if I only see each other you may be a little bit too pushy on on a woman that doesn't doesn't like it or is not really interesting you there's a lot of all involved in a lot of those stories there was alcohol involved so that makes it even even worse because you already know when that comes into play there's things like blacking out for getting what you're doing. Thursday. Alcohol make you do crazy things. So a lot of people just shouldn't be drinking in the first place and and it's just crazy because again, I'm not surprised by anybody who's tools come out. It's been some of them that I did I personally and those kind of hurt but I'm not surprised with them either. It's not I'm not surprised that to me there. It just really sucks. Because like I think this is a huge wake-up call that we just need to change the way that we interact with each other is and it's not just me and two because it definitely did some women dead of that'll come out to doing some real Pito stuff. We need to change the way that we interact with each other because I don't like this stuff is going to change until Thursday till we do like we need to just put it on the table. What's right and what's wrong? What are what are passable things and whether or not like you need to just come out and say like I didn't feel comfortable with what you say. Like, I don't feel comfy with your behavior. You need to change that men need to need to really take a look at themselves and reevaluate like how you act and we cannot use any more off. With a kid, you know because a lot of these people have not changed their mentality from when they were a kid. I don't feel like that's really an acceptable defense anymore to say. Well I was a kid I was able to sejal. I didn't know any better because a lot of them were teenagers at that point and I feel like that's that's really not a defense that that people should be using anybody when I was a teenager. I knew better I knew how to talk to women. And so I I never been been accused of any of this stuff and it's it's really sad, but I will say this some of these stories I did see where we're legit just taking the opportunity to talk to, you know are out the dirty laundry of getting cheated on getting cheated on. Yes. It means that yeah, the man was a piece of shit, but that that's not the ground to you know, just sort it out amongst the sexual assault sexual abuse and rape cases. That's only thing that I did not like that was very very distasteful and those people know who they were to to make their twitlonger is about dead. Buddy who cheated on you or or they feel is early? That's the whoa. That's not do that. Right? Yeah, just miss like bro. That's life. Like you don't need to be to be you know out, you know, whoever because of that so some people were accused of those things and I don't feel like they should be demonized well for the people who did legit rape and envy and paedos and and sexual abuse and sexual assaulting when you know, the woman did not come to a yeah, that's that's really, you know night on any grounds for you to view the still be, you know, running around here. Like everything is all hunky-dory and also if everybody who didn't know because I do know in the lobby situation like they're homeboys new to we need to start holding each other accountable. Like I know everybody says there for like it's really really more prevalent now like to my knowledge, like I said, I don't know anybody in my small circle that's done that stuff we talk about this all the time. Like if you you know, did that crazy shit like it's it's really no tolerance like you need to get up out of here. We're all grown and GI. So like I said, you know using that stuff talking about like I was younger when it happened, that's nice. Not flying. So all mine is a good to my to my knowledge and I stay like I know all of us a good and our song Anaconda. I think there's that's really why like, we really were like no job versus everybody because like we know the crazy, you know, some of the crazy things that people have been doing out here. I'm not saying I know anybody who raped them almost. I'm not seeing it cuz like I said a lot of this stuff with a surprise, but we know about the crazy stuff that people been saying and how people be acting so it's party you go to events make it about business. You can go off, you know have a drink but don't stay out too late. Go back to your room. Right? Like they were we have fun and stuff. But at the end of the day like when we go to these events, we're trying to you know, play these games. We're trying to talk to developers. We're trying to network. Like that's the main goal is never to to get on women or whatever like if it happens it happens, but like you say for the longest I've been out the game anyway, so I hope you participate fishing. Oh, yeah. Yep. Wait, so like I said, I'm a little more business hundred percent but it's really crazy man, and it's not going to stop anytime soon because it's apparently, you know been a lot of women that they hold this stuff for years, like even back to 2011. That's a very long time and then in the day, it doesn't really matter how long ago it was like, you know, if they feel the confidence to come out and finally, you know stand up to their abusers then you know that it is what it is, It's been happening. Now a lot of women have that confidence to talk about it. And again everybody should be held accountable. You shouldn't be defending these people. That's such a terrible argument too. Cuz like a good comparison I can give is like, oh, why did she wait five years to let everybody know she was raped. All right. Well if you were living next to a murderer, right and that was your neighbor and you were really cool with them and five years down the road you found out like five years ago. He created he murdered somebody and he didn't go to jail for life. You're not going to look at your your neighbor differently, like what you're talking about. You're like exactly exactly that's a that's a perfect comparison. So like I say, it's just crazy, but everybody needs to hold themselves accountable. You need to hold your friends accountable. And and believe the women Brooke cuz it's it's been crazy. Like now I know people personally who I had no idea that got sexually assaulted sexually abused. It's a lot of things going on in the background that I'm just like what the fuck is really doing a community the women but also I would like to add like some of y'all need to be careful which all words cuz I've seen several people post things on Twitter that gave me the wrong way that was very dangerous people making lists of offenders and then you look at that list and it has lists of people it has people accused of sexual assault but then also people accused of like bullying or loss arising and the problem with that is like not everybody's going to read people are just going to read the list of offenders and assume all five of those people on that list are sexual offenders, and that should it's very dangerous and that should rub me the wrong way when I seen them what the fuck is bullying and harassing that's subjective. That's something that you could have a conversation and behind-the-scenes like in Discord be like, hey you made me feel some type of way when you said X Y and Z and you can hash that out as an adult, but stop posting people on Thursday. Kinda, like what Jackie was saying earlier would like some people were using the opportunity to expose like cheaters that there's some things like you can hash that behind the scenes as fucking adults. I didn't like that shit that I've seen that that should rub me the wrong way. So I encourage people to be careful they words to cuz it is a very sensitive time and people are looking at things at face value. I'm not gonna lie. I see a bit longer. I'm going to assume you're either a pedo a rapist and when I'm glad I read that list I seen it from multiple people where there was like list of offenders and I read it and there was like bullying sexual misconduct. I'm like, why are you mixing in quote unquote a bully which is subjective by the way to somebody who was a rapist. I'm like get the fuck out here. That's that's that's very dangerous. I don't like that shit. Yeah, but even got shut down cuz all this you got shut down. So you will see you admitted with apparently to being a pedophile. So the CEO of emo. Yeah. They took the wizard you see? Oh my God, mr. CEO himself replaced. That's a that's a best hikes. And then we got you know, we got other, you know, we got a certain gentleman flavor people, you know, after different flavor plan puppets and playing with fourteen-year-olds being puppets. You know what I said, you know, I said I sent you allegedly box allegedly allegedly, of course, but the evidence is very damning. I I I saw this on stream and people made fun of it, but now I'm starting to really like take this shit to my core values system, but I'm starting to really believe it cuz I say jokingly, but now with all this shit coming out maybe I was right I said I said, you know If you're a grown man, like your past 24 in my opinion, if you're twenty-four years of age and you're out here playing like Smash Bros and you're playing Minecraft, like you're paying very kid-oriented games and you're not doing it because you're like, like I said Minecraft exception. I was like if you're like, let's say making some really cool architecture or something like that like as a creative like making Parts out of it cool totally fine, but I'm like if I see you out and like you're playing with your audience and your audience is a bunch of fourteen-year-olds and underage kids. I'm sorry. I'm gonna start looking at you weird. Like I just now like it kind of like this thing is kind of giving me confirmation bias or like home now. I'm going to start like it depends cuz I like I'm playing SpongeBob right now game is mad child is Nick ain't no damn pedo. It's relaxing but like then yeah, they kind of weird. Yeah. That's right. Yeah, like that is fine. I'm not gonna tell you like you're not allowed to play Pokemon games and that's what I'm saying I'm saying but let's say you're a Pokemon player, right? You only play Pokemon you only play it on line and you're playing with a bunch of underage people who are under. Yep. And that's like why are you so comfortable? I'm not comfortable being around. Nobody else guess it is weird. Yeah, that's where I'm like, I'm going to look at you. Like, you know something not right like something's not right. I can't me and my head like I cannot get my head understand why you would even be remotely interacting with people who are like that low underneath your age. Like they're complete like brain mindset is not even the same Alyssa Mass commuting by the way, cuz if you see that same page, like the thing that bothered me the most about is how oblivious everybody was in their land even notice it right. I'll give a call to the foods who are playing in the front because they were playing the game but not everybody else in the room didn't see that like there was a group of people around them while they were like well while they're like interacting with each other just like the system either a tabling this ship. Yeah, like like now I have to look at all y'all and same go ahead like you guys didn't see anything like you didn't you in some way like how would you said you enabled this Behavior or that or your your value system is fucked up if you literally solve this girl off. Walking around playing with play fighting with a fourteen-year-old and she's twenty-four and nothing triggered in your mind to say hmm. They're a little too friendly right here. Yeah, that's a little too friendly to me. Nothing your head. Maybe something's wrong with you to like maybe you need to also like reevaluate yourself and maybe we need to push responsibility on those people as well that they that they need to be looked at. Well because they allow this sort of nature happen cuz I'mma tell you right now all this shit that's happening now in the fgc and smash commute and that's part of the same thing and just in the industry as well. This is not isolated events. This is not just random people off to it. This is a culture that is cultivated by people who do not speak up who turn a blind eye or are cool with it and and just let them go do what they want. And so in my own opinion it is not just the people who are families are getting added we're being accused of stuff. You also need to look at the people who are in their circles who have been friends with them for a very long time. And if so much of this is there like a dog This is public we were you know publicly we were that but we were privately doing that and this is your best friend and you tell me you just didn't see you didn't notice any of it. It's hard for me to believe that you're completely agree with you had to be careful saying cuz you don't take advice a situation to situation because a lot of these relationships developed. Well, they develop via Discord and like what me and you playing a game on Discord is exactly they you know, what somebody does outside of Discord now the people who have relationships in real life relationships and you hang out on the regular then yeah, I agree with you. Yeah, cuz I can't tell for example I'm asking this is true. But like I can't tell what like, I don't know like I can't do it like Steve or black or who they're discarding right? Like there's no way I can tell it's like a girl themselves like, oh I'm using the example. I'm not saying this is true. I'm saying like if I came out was like, oh well black was out here someway somehow like he was out here just texting a bunch of girls on Discord. So that making them feel uncomfortable. There's no way I would know about this but like I'll say here today and wage. I remember we we said this shit when the pedophile Shake came out about that one person. I remember we publicly said this year in our Discord and I will repeat it every single time anybody that includes anybody in GI anybody in our discourse anybody that has any sort of community in in our community at all, if they are sexually harassing you bullying you harassing you doing some evil as shit, please. Let us know like I have no Talent you can let me know if you don't feel safe my emails like I promised you could let me know bro. I have no times on it. I know for a fact eh don't have any time to Jay-Z definitely don't have to talk everybody job. We I know these dudes since like how long has been like eight years nine has been a decade. It's almost a decade. We don't tolerate none of that shit and I swear to God I will I will ban I will help ban that person make sure they start far away from you as as humanly possible wage. If you need to involve the police, we will help you get that like sort of information to who you need to in order to take care of it any information you need in order to like take care of that thing. We will make sure we help to support you. I don't tolerate em. Of that shit. I agree with teh. Like I've heard I've heard stories. I've talked to women before when you said that it was powerful. Like I've talked to him before who talked about their experiences and that's just no fucking joke bruh. It's really nice. It's really depressing and it's really fucking sad. It really is. I really I really do hate that like whenever we have like this type of conversation. There's always those dudes what it would be like, you're right some women do be lying but I had a hard time. Like I said I said to my videos like I've had at least like ten women told me that they've been raped and do I believe every story? No, that's not what I'm saying, but I do believe some of them cuz like I have a hard time believing that all these women that are just bawling there. I thought crying remembering the shit are fucking lying and like you come across as very heartless all I'm trying to all I was trying to say in that videos is like just start listening more like I feel like seeing someone brings up in a sexual assault was well dudes get sexually assaulted like you get people get mad defensively the papers. It's a little is it's all lies better shit. Yeah, you know, you're trying to Discount the the the issues with them. Something specific cuz you're trying to downplay it and the worst part is is like it's okay and I have to stress this enough it is it is good and it is required obviously under a system that people are initially innocent under the law until they are investigating stuff like that and it is okay for you to ask for not to demand and not to like belittle their experiences say, I don't believe you cuz I just to ask and say hey any sort of like evidence that you have for this just so that I can understand more of the situation so I can get a better grasp of what has happened. I would appreciate that and then that I can help form my own opinion on what has happened here. I think that's important as well. So like I definitely believe you need to believe all women I think is also important that obviously like that. We believe that people are innocent under the law until evidence is shown to prove that this person is wrong. But again, you got you cannot start going and when someone makes an accusation like especially a woman makes an accusation cuz this is just been years of of women being told to shut off of a culture that's been told to like it is. Yep. Barisan for them so I can't even like fathom how that must feel cuz thank God it's never happened to me but it has happened to people that I know and it is tough. It is like just seeing them like Jack in just trying to like just trying to bring it up and just how they immediately just come to tears it is it is shit that stays with you. You'll never leave you so yeah like This is important. Right and for all you people that are like pissed about evil being canceled shame on y'all shame on fucking y'all should be more concerned about that. There is this fucking Predator culture going on and that it's getting and we should be wiping it out then wage. Oh my God, I can't watch people play on a leggy connection shame on. Like I said, like I said, if you get anything out of this conversation, like I think what would change my perspective a lot? It's just like talking to the women you love. I think the one of the problems with dudes is like you get so dismissive because the women that you see accusing somebody online. There's just some random woman to you but like actually bring it home go ask your mother go ask your cousin sisters your nieces, I guarantee you you're going to find a handful of them have stories and it's going to change your perspective on things and you going to call your mother a liar. That's that's that's that's what changed my perspective of thing. That's why I try to be more open-minded about Chicago saying I believe everybody but I'll be open-minded to it. But this man went on the whole tangent it is what it is fellows do better, but let's do better. That's all off. On my podcast. I think we get into it right there. Does anybody got anything they want to add to the conversation before we wrap it up not really congrats on a hundred episodes. All right. Well, this is a game in Illuminati episode 100 because you are the guests Fernie you got the show floor anything you want to say before we wrap it up just grateful to be part of this episode. I wanted took me out. My name is true for any and all socials and yeah do better but we might we might that's that's going to be the name of the episode do better off. All right, though. She got the show floor which are closing statement for game Illuminati episode 100 go. Yay. We made it to a hundred episodes and I haven't been kicked off the jet podcast. I'm very surprised. I thought you would have been kicked out of a job. I now that was going black Plan by this point, but you've been hanging on there. So it might take us a little bit longer, but I'm proud of all these guys and Prodigy I we dog None of that shit rough and like again, please speak up and if you ever do have an issue with anybody that's in GI or outside of it in our communities like please like let us go like we don't tolerate month. So be safe less up and eat them glizzy's. Oh my God, you're eating is fucking it's raining right now in USA closer to Stave off. So a 75 busy today. Hey, man, we made up the phone 100.

What I've Learned About Business, Part Two

"What in know about business analyst about on business? I don't actually. It's complicated. Hello, welcome back. Are you ready for part two of what I've learned in business? I hope so that's you're about to get last week. I shared everything I learned in the first five years of building bangle. And today I'm sharing what I learned in the second five years in this episode. You'll find out what it takes to scale business. And also how that feels spoiler alert. It does not always feel good. I'll share tips on management hiring organization and the importance of intention and transparency in your work. You're about to get a brain full of business away. We go. So at this point, you would have heard what I learned in the five five what five five five th that's not what I was trying to say what I learned in the first five years of Banda. Now, I wanna tell you what I learned in the second five years 'cause five and five is ten and we've been in business for ten years. So I cut it in half. I slice it up a making a band of sandwich. I don't know us in between. Maybe nothing maybe it's just two pieces of bread. That's not even a sandwich, though, my favorite kind of sandwich. Not that you asked probably grilled cheese. But also. Sandwich place for house, and they're true artisans to do all sorts of stuff comic, a roast beef sandwich would like horseradish sauce on it and like a really cool cheese. But then it's like also be great if it had potato chips. I don't is the hamburger amateur like those two, oh, I like grilled chicken sandwiches. Oh, my God be LT's with crispy bacon. And I actually don't even know if I need the L or the tea, just bacon and bread. Anyways at about the fifteen minute, Mark. I'm a half to take a pause because I'm trying to bowl some water for some spaghetti because I wanna eat some spaghetti. Let's it. I just thought you should know you you may not even notice it happens because we can do secret shit like on a podcast Ryan to stop recording and start again, it's like I never left, but there may be a twenty minute period between where I'm making spaghetti. It's wild. I tell you. I'm watching my dog Philip go to the bathroom in our backyard. I have I just have. I just painted a picture of someone that you wanna take business advice from I hope so because it's a whole new world out there and people like me can now give business advice, which I'm really excited to do. And it's not even just advice. It's I just wanna share the experience with you. Because I don't think people talk about this enough. And I think it just seems like businesses easy. And when I say, there are things that I learned some of it is like I found out that there's some real shit stuff. You have to go through is not like, hey, write this down because this is like business school. I would imagine that you maybe don't find out about some of this stuff at business school. So. Let's dig in shall we? I think we shall if you've made it five years in business. Congratulations. That's huge. Sometimes I'm not exactly sure how he did that other than I know that we sold the business that year four, and then someone with a lot of sense over and enabled our creativity to fuel create creativity of the business and the brand rather than the numbers portion. But what I think is a really common thing. A goal for most people in business growth, whether that you're Spiring to have growth from a recognition standpoint. So like brand growth or you're growing because you have one brick and mortar store, and you wanna have one hundred or you wanna grow just from a profit standpoint or a sale standpoint or you wanna go from five employees to five hundred employees. I think business growth is top of mind for for most business people that said, I think there's also something really interesting about like sustainability in business where you find you have a small business, but you don't need it to be a medium or large business. You like the way it runs you have one or two employees everyone feels like they're being paid well treated, well, you're making a profit you're living the life. You want your earning the amount of money you want, and it's great. I I mean, I don't know that that is ever champ. Sian I feel like especially now with the way businesses are in the spotlight, especially on female, founders and female run businesses. It's like how big impressive can you get and it's really really hard. So please don't let growth have get in with your ego. And let you think that it's an absolute it's absolutely not there's room in the world for extra small, small, medium, large and extra large businesses. So please remember that grows his heart. It's scary is full of liability and setbacks and also big wins and celebrations so. What do I want to tell you? Here's what I wanna to tell you. We grew in a lot of ways in the last five years one of the most impactful ways that we grew was we grew our team we were a team of five for a really long time. I think it was probably around the six year Mark that we got to ten which felt really big. And then we went from ten to about forty and that's just in our L A office. There's there's team members that work in lots of different offices for Bando. But but the LA teams the team that I work with the most in that. I am actually like. Effected by the most and was a big part of growing them and on boarding and interviewing and all of that. So we that that last jump happened quite quickly like probably over a six month period of time, which may be doesn't sound fast. If you're not in business, but most things don't happen in six month period of time and business everything takes longer than you think. So write that down. And Mark my words on that not just employees growth or anything. But if you're a visionary, especially in your business or your company, you can see where you are. And where you wanna be very clearly, and you will grossly underestimate the time it takes to get there from where you are to where you want to be. So be patient. It's gonna take a long time I'm dealing with that right now. So that's something that I have learned and continued to learn every day. But here's the thing that growth from five to forty was. Exciting. I felt proud. I felt like I was doing what everyone expected us to do which is to be able to say to France while we're we have thirty employees. Now, like, I felt I don't know maybe kind of full of myself, and like it's expensive to have a lot of employees. So it was like we were obviously doing well. And there was more opportunity. And that's why we needed more people. And you know, we went from a really small we went from my living room to my dining room to a very small office that we worked in for a really long time to slightly larger house that we worked in for shorter time because we went from five to ten in that house in the house was probably good for four. And then we moved into the penthouse which is the office. We have now which is two floors probably seven thousand square feet each and used to roller skate in that office because I was like no way will we ever feel this. Well, we did. And all. All of that was so much fun. It was so exhilarating, and we were really on a roll. But here here are some of the things I've learned. When you're going to have growth like that, you need to know who you are as a person as a business as a group of employees who you are what you stand for what's important for you. And what you're not willing to tolerate and honestly. I didn't know that. There's something about having a small team of like minded, some call it a hive mind like minded people that have worked together for a long time that have developed a short hand that an I think I've said it before with some of the girls I've been there for a long time like just we can communicate with just a glance. And so that work that introspection, and and the articulation that would be a result of introspection about those things that I said who you are what's important to you. What you won't stand for what you will stand for what you do stand for was not articulated, and I just assumed because all I knew was the group that I had and we were I just I can't even tell you. How lucky I was at the beginning of banjo and building it, and I think I probably refer to it in that in the up. I five years episode. But but in case, I didn't the people that came into my life through Bando during those first five years, our epic. And we're obviously John in for reason. And my naievety told me that as we grow. We would just get more of the same. And also that the person or people that you speak to in an interview are the people that will show up to work three six months in when things get really hard and stressful. And because that was the experience I had had that was the experience I had had what I didn't know is that that's not common. And that was just another thing that was special to us. And so the assumptions that I made were were what ended up being. The toughest for me. Because then I ended up with a team that was larger than I was probably prepared to lead. And I wasn't doing it by myself by any stretch. But still as the founder, you know, that I was unable to articulate what I needed creatively or logistically 'cause I really hadn't had to. And that the biggest thing was that the company culture was going to be challenged because some people were actually just there because they wanted a job. And by the way, I'm not disparaging. This isn't said in a disparaging way, that's a lot of people just go to work because they're adults and they need a job, and they need an income. And they wanna use that money to do the things that they're really passionate about. As someone who has never really been willing to do that. Which is why I did not have any money for a long time. Because I just I didn't understand the concept of just having a job. And then spending your spare time doing what you loved. I didn't realize that. And then it's a different relationship. And so when you're a small company, which I know many of my listeners are part of a small company or have started one you end up with people that are just like as passionate about it as you are. And and we still have a really large team we've scaled it back in so many people there are so passionate. So it's not to say like there's five of us that are passionate and the rest of us aren't. But there are people that will come in and out, and it's just a transitional thing for them. And and also, that's okay. I just want you to be prepared for that. And know that there there will be different types of people that come in. And and the onus is on you to communicate what you expect how you work. Work, and yeah, I don't know. And just cut. Oh, I gotta go. Check the spaghetti BRB. I'm back. The first thing I want to say is just because I in the interest of being completely transparent with you. It's not spaghetti. It's penny. Regatta? I forgot that. I was all out of spaghetti. And I went to the store to get more spaghetti. And they were all out of the spaghetti that I like, so I got back a penny regatta, and then I got home, and I had already had a bag of Paraguay four exactly the same reason. But it's a great fallback, especially when you're having pesto because it's like a ridged it's like ZD, but with ridges, and so the pesto falls in there, and it's delicious anyways. Okay. Ten minutes from now. I gotta go get get it get it off the stove. So let's let's get back to business shall we saw with growth. I think the thing to remember is that as a leader the onus is going to be on you in. How you communicate to your growing team? And an understanding who you are. And why you are. And why you exist and identifying when that changes and communicating it is going to be a huge responsibility for the duration that you are in business, and again meetings and emails, and you know, formal communications and brand books and employee handbooks those, you know, those came to us overtime and honest. We still something that we're working on brand pillars. And what are we what do we stand for and what's important to us, and what's important to our employees and how and what is our company culture, you know, in for us. Our company culture was always about commod commodity and fun and connection and enjoying our work and fueling it with passion and being resilient and being really tethered. The idea of being great creative problem solvers, not looking at problems as problems but looking at them as an opportunity to challenge ourselves to think bigger think different. And that's who we are league. That's who. I am dots. Our company DNA. Now, did I say that to everybody in job interview? No because I didn't even realize it, you know. So the time that you can take to interest back and document that and I'm sure a lot of people that that have started a business maybe started with that. And that's great. You know, Bando was. Creative endeavor that turned into a business that turned into a brand that turned into a place where people work so some of it has come at the opposite. You know at a time much different than it does for others. But I want to say, that's okay, too. You know, the other thing that I've learned is that my business inside and outside from time standpoint from a organizational chart standpoint from anything will not mere anyone else's nor should it. I've lots of friends that have that have team similar size to mine, and they and it structure differently and it's run differently, and they tolerate different things, and they don't tolerate other things, and that's okay too. And that's important thing to remember. And what's nice is you can hear you should find a group of people that are in the same places, you and expose each other to what's going on. That is another huge thing that I learn. Earned that like having a network of like minded people that are in a similar place in their business changed my whole perspective. Because and I know I've said this before you know, it it's it's lonely. A no one talks about it. We don't talk about it enough. But man, I have some great friends now. And we I mean we sat in a hot tub this weekend talking about the challenges at work. And then one of us was challenging and others of us would be like wait I have to they're like, oh my God. That was just happening to me. So you know, finding that is going to be important. What do you know about Honey? I can tell you about Honey look right now. But I Honey just Honey it's great, right? I'm glad that they called this platform Honey book because I had a very bad sore throat about a month. Maybe two months ago. I can't remember. But I do know that I had some hot water, some lemon and some money. And it cured me. So obviously, we're onto something here Honey book if you don't remember, but to might purpose built business management platform for creative small businesses. I know there's a lot of you out there. I feel like I've talked about how much I could've used Honey book in the early days of bandeau. I would say could use it now. But I have the great, Deborah. And she helps me with a lot of this stuff. But this would be very valuable say if you're a target offer designer event professional any kind of solo per nor creative per nor. Preneurs per Noor. You will save time on paperwork emails, and the dreaded dealing with payment collection. So here's what I have for you. For a limited time JJ. Okay. Listeners can get five zero fifty percent off the first year of Honey book with promo code j g okay Honey, book membership includes unlimited access to all features at one low monthly price. So go to hunt book dot com today and use promo code jug. Doc to get started again Honey book dotcom. Promo code j g okay Honey brook by. I talk about focusing on top level shit in the last one at how I learned that and the things that the top of shit, I was focusing on in the first five years is so different than what's happening now. But the idea of taking that team and building trust with people and educating them and not just offloading work, but actually training them in a meaningful way and letting them fail on your behalf and not shaming never for the failure. Especially when they're doing their best using it as learning opportunities and growing the people that are invested and letting them know what their future looks like at their company at your company where they can go and encouraging them is so important, especially if you are a founder, and you need to see what the next ten years, look like, and so that's more. Like for me what I've learned my my top level shit. Now is like looking into the future. And I I still find myself in the weeds from time to time because it's a really hard habit to break. But I've also been very dedicated to getting better. At articulating what I'm looking for to empowering, the people around me to staying out of some shit and sitting out of some meetings and some phone calls and getting some Email chains and just letting people do it and know that it may not look exactly how I wanted it to look either in the process or in the finished product. And it doesn't matter there's lots of right answers. So another big symptom of growth is letting go and I'll talk about that talk about that. Anytime I talk about business, especially business leadership. It's like knowing what to let go of and knowing what really hold tight to because. You can't just let go of everything, but you have to let go of a lot of the little stuff and get some perspective on what's actually important. So you can so you can impact it the last thing I'll say about growth, and I and I said it was expensive. It is. Because you you you buy desks and chairs and computers. And but also salaries are not that's not what it costs to have the person. There's there's insurance and benefits and 4._0._1._K's. It's almost the same as when you when I went to buy a house, and I was like I totally afford that. And then it was like, here's your insurance and your property tax, and you and then the roof leaks, and it's the same. So just know going in as with anything with business growth. Make sure if it's not you that there's someone there that can help look at your finances. Help you make projections and also give you clarity on what it actually costs to grow. And if you can afford to do it. And be realistic about that's important. We've been lucky because on the financial side there, some some really sound sound people grounded sounded and grounded, and they are smart about what what we allow ourselves to do. We like to dream about what the potential is for each year's revenue, but also be realistic and not not get into a spot where we've grown too far too fast, which can happen and happens to a lot of companies and may happen to us in three weeks from now, but it doesn't look like it would have to be a very dramatic thing. But I just want you to know I wanted you to hear me say that I'm aware that that could happen today in anything I record could end up being relevant. Ten moments later. Okay. I snuck away. I snuck away, and I completed the penny regarding well, that's not true. I took it off the stove and I've strained it. And now it's waiting for the pesto to be applied. But I'm going to do that that that's sort of the carrot on the string for me when I get through this. I can eat the pesto. So. Yeah. So obviously a lot of this episode is is about growth, and that's the that's the that is the biggest theme of the last five years is identifying how we wanted to grow the kind of growth that was important to us, and what growth actually looks like. And so there upsides downsides part of having a larger team means what I've been alluding to. It's like you actually have to change the way you work and your workflow, and we we got on Google calendar. Which if you're on a not, unlike a sync up calendar interoffice counter, that's. Important. We used programs like base camp at Asana magic to manage products. No. We use my gosh, come on. Jan we used whatever programs like base camp at Asana to manage product projects. Oh my gosh. Fuck. Brain fuck demanded projects 'cause you have so many projects with so many team members on them slack is a great inter office communication system that the girls mostly used to send each other funny gifts and say what celebrities they saw lunch. But I also think it reduces emails in a great way to communicate quickly with a group. I also worked to kind of understand just as a larger internal team that has offices notch us in Los Angeles. But in Kentucky overseas, London, Hong Kong. Even our publicists are in New York, and we have team members sort of like floating all over the country like they actually levitated their magic. They don't really flow. But I, but I sort of focused in on some things that internally we're going to be important to being affective at work as teams, and I thought maybe I would share a few of those with you too. Because whether these are teams that you're managing or teams that you're a part of these are some of the things that have been the most important to me and and a function of our growth, so hopefully hearing them, we'll help simplicity huge thing. If you're anything like me or know any- anyone that's anything like me. We love to make things more complicated than they need to be. I don't know why I don't love complexity I like simplicity. But sometimes there's Zeier to take more winding road to. Two from inception of idea to finished product or outcome. And so it's really about finding the shortest path to success prioritizing over more identifying the intentions of the work you are doing which is so important and finding the shortest path to success. So the. Intentions are in. That's something. I've only learned in the last I mean, really identified in like the last six months, I've always known how important intentions are in life. I've always admired people that lived and operated with such intention. But understanding what your intentions are for any given thing at work in your business. Whether it's just a task or it's a giant project, or it's like starting the business understanding them and being able to articulate them and communicate them is so important, and then using them as a guidepost for what you do like, a touchtone to kind of check back in be like are we being true to our intentions is this are we going in the direction that would have been identified by what our intentions and our goal is is so important and really helps us simplicity because I think. That sometimes creativity is the enemy of simplicity. And that is definitely something that I've learned and as a highly creative person that's where a lot of the complexity comes from because it's like, Ooh, I on top of idea on type of idea and bandeau, we certainly have a very it's a juicy juicy place. Also, she said gross. No, there's there's so much room for ideas. And there's so many ways to do anything, and it's so led by creativity. But but sometimes creativity really can be the enemy of simplicity. And without identifying intention. It's really easy to lose sight of all of that. And it doesn't feel like you're doing anything wrong because you're being creative and everyone's having fun. But as you grow productivity is important and the way you spend your time is important. So definitely something to think about here's a fun word that. People talk about all the time transparency. And for me, that's about creating open honest, IDE justifiable communication across the business where there's context for all formation shared to the recipient has a clear understanding of the information. They are receiving that sounded really articulate because I wrote that a long time ago and shared it with my team. And now, I'm sharing it with you alignment open communication and context transparency is one of those things that it's like it's such a hot word, but it's like information without context. Is is very confusing like being exposing people to information that they actually don't understand. Or don't have the context understand is worse than not giving them any information at all. So as we've challenged ourselves to to grow and be more transparent. Sorry as we've challenged ourselves to become more transparent as a company within departments company-wide managers to the people that they manage. I was very clear that I wanted to make sure that there's responsibility on both sides of that that if you're being given information, you don't understand that you that you ask for more context, and you don't make assumptions and that if you're giving information that you're filling it in two or three sentences about what it is an example for me is like especially with employers that are really curious. You know, you'll. Share sales numbers. And and then if you're if you're having a great a great year, then everyone's like, well, why why don't we have more stuff in the office? I have a nicer desk. Why don't I have more money, and it's like well sales as one part of business cost. Do you know, what cost of goods sold are do you know, how much actually costs to have an employee or free coffee, or whatever it is? You know, and just giving that context helps to understand why. Okay. Thank you for your transparency understand the business doing well also understand why that can't directly affect me at this very moment. And I think that's important. And so I feel like working to educate your team and giving them context as you as you challenge yourself to communicate more so that people aren't left to just draw their own conclusions is really important, and I actually think that speaks to any size team. But something that I've only realized over the. The last few years. And then I think the other big one is collaboration and another word that's used all the time. But here's what I wrote about that true collaboration works when there's trust and respect between team members. So that should constantly being built and strengthened among the team. And that is the important piece like collaborating to just say, hey, we're collaborating on this. But how do you meaningfully? Find effective ways to work together. And how do you build trust with the members of your team or the people that you're working with on any given project? You work with integrity, you work with candidness and openness, you're not afraid to have difficult conversations, and you're open to feedback and you can accept it digest it discuss it and move on. And the times that teams haven't been collaborative. There's usually been some sort of like personal conflict personality conflict. I don't wanna say bad blood because I feel like there's not really bad blood. But you know, where someone has felt wrong by something that happened, and it was never discussed. And, you know, having those types of relationships are hard, and it's hard for me. I mean, I'm saying this, but but I really had to challenge myself over the last couple of years to like enter into some places that were not comfortable. For me because I knew it would serve a bigger purpose by having some difficult things. And and and creating trust and respect between everyone something we work on all the time. We don't have it. One hundred percent perfect. We never will. But to truly collaborate think about the people that you collaborate best with professionally personally long-term or short-term. What was it that made it successful other than maybe you are like minded and your personalities were similar you probably trusted and respected them. So that's really important to the last thing. I'll say is that I really really learned. And I've known, but really truly learned was the portent of passion in what you're doing in. How you express that passion, especially as a leader? So people can also plug into it. And how. Portent is that your team and each individual on the team is passionate about what they're doing? Now. I've just described dream scenario. I get it. But the better you get as an understanding what your true passions are. And how they relate to the business. What the business stands for what what your intention is? And what you're trying to do and communicating that helps people to see where they can take their passion and plug it into it for us. We constantly see success when the passion is infused in the process, so keeping the team plugged in and enthusiastic about their work as a group, and as individuals is a really important for the people that have overtime in small periods in longer. Periods have underperformed or under delivered a lot of times I've found out that they just were not passionate about what they were doing. Sometimes that means there's no job. For you here, but you should go and pursue your passion. That's important. We had a lot of people early on that did a good job. Did a great job. But clearly in in comparison to someone who is so fucking passionate about what they were doing especially on creative side. It was it. You could see the difference. But I didn't understand what that was. And then they went on to go be actresses and artists and all sorts of things and I see them thriving because they're plugged into their passionate. I realized oh man that hurt me when they left but thank God. They did because they were pursuing what they were doing if you're lucky enough, you'll have a majority of your team this passionate about what they do and their contribution that they make to the bigger picture, whether that's someone that's so passionate about Instagram loves it. And they're and they're doing a part of social media or someone who loves to build community, and they're they're a big part of your community events, or you know, maybe it's a multifaceted. I think for us like I was saying earlier people that are that really are passionate about solving things creative problem solving and working hard and building something and that can come out in many ways shapes or form, but I would just say make sure that you are plugged into that passionate. If you're at a job right now. I mean, so much of this has been focused people that are thinking of growing business or starting a business. But maybe you're just out of job. Like, ask yourself, are you passionate about it are the people you work with passionate as your boss passionate because it is a maker break thing. It really is especially when you're trying to run an grow your own business. If you don't have passion, it's not gonna work. So think about that. Have fun too. Which which I have to say, but as important, and and and finding that, and I think if you have a lot of things that I listed you can do that you should do that leaving room for that is important. And I talk about that in the in the what I learned in the first five years, but but finding pleasure in amongst all of all of these learnings is is really important too. So hopefully, you'll be able to do that. And I would love to talk more because I could talk for seven more hours. But all I can think about is this pesto. So I gotta go hope this helps see back here in five years. And we'll talk about what else I learned. I can't even imagine what it's going to be. But I know it's going to be good. Okay. Okay. Are you ready to take your business to the next level? Are you scared? A little that's okay, totally normal. I probably should have been a lot more scared than I was. Well, I'm just thrilled to be able to share with you what I've learned I would have given my right arm, or at least my left arm because I'm right handed in exchange for this kind of business insight. So I hope these last two episodes allow you to keep both of your arms because I love you. I appreciate you. And I know you will take this dodge decent rate with it. All right, go get him by. What do you know about that? After show. It's J G O K after show. You don't know about the after show. Oh, hey, Phil heared me singing in than he wanted to come make me stop. But I'm still singing about this after show quick after show for you today. Just wanted to tell you I got back into tennis. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know, that's my new deal. I was looking for a fun hobby that maybe was active taken up hiking. Although my brother really hasn't been inviting me to go lately, maybe he's found another hiking partner. So I decided to pursue tennis. And here's what I wanted to tell you three lessons them, and I know how to serve. Now, it's true that I'm not actually playing against anyone yet. But I will tell you that my coach who. It is not free with compliments. He he he's he's good with criticism. But you don't get a ton of compliments. That's how I know. He means it says that I have a naturally, gifted athlete. And a very fast learner, and I just wanted that to be documented somewhere. No one regulates the after show. So that's where I'm putting it. Okay. Love set match point deuce whatever you say in tennis terms balls by.

If you haven't heard by now, Facebook, isn't the greatest with all that data at has on you. But Facebook does offer a number of ways to lock down here so you can sleep, maybe a little bit easier at night. Jason Cipriani at CNN put together a handy list of all the ways you can best, secure your data on Facebook and joins us. Now walk Jason take guys. How are you doing awesome? It's great to get you back. It's been a little while it's also nice to have another Jason on the show. So I appreciate you. First of all, is the best data protection to get rid of a Facebook account entirely, or is that just what I did, or does that even stop the flow of data anyway? Well, I think it's a good step. If you really wanna get extreme with, it absolutely does not stop the flow of data all the companies still track you whether or not, you're registered registered user. So I mean yeah, if you wanna go nuclear that's a great option. But there's a lot of people like myself and everyone else in my family. That that's our main method of keeping in touch with each other keeping tabs on what's going on in each other's life as well, as you know, there's important groups on there and some people have to use it for work. I share quite a bit of stuff on there from work as well. So it's you know as much as I don't like Facebook. I'm kind of stuck with it. Yeah. It's kind of the option where most people are so people feel like that they have to be there for that reason loan. So I mean obviously, there are tons of users, right? So many people are. Keeping their account, they might still want to practice safety and security and protection of their account. Data talk a little bit about some of the ways they can do that password protection is kind of the first and of the obvious step. This is the thing that everybody does their account is password protected. But what can they do to make it even more secure in that regard? Yes. So I think the first step is getting a password manager, whether it's one password, or one of the competitors and using that to not only create a very strong and unique password. But remember it for you, and all of these absence services are able to auto fill passwords for you, so you don't have to go and copy and paste the extra built in, whether it's Android IOS windows or MAC. I is create a very strong password. I always tell people I have, like five hundred accounts in my one password vault, and I probably know two of those passwords. And so it's okay, not to know your password. The second step is to factor out indication and what that. Is basically you log in with your unique password, your hard to guess password, and then a code is sent to your device, it's a random six digit code that then is required to gain access to your account. So it's two steps to get into your account. But the main thing there is, when you pick a password manager, all of them support to pass two factor authentication codes. And so instead of setting it up to receive that code through text messaging, which may seem very convenient in reality. It's very insecure, just this week fellow writer ZD net where I also freelance and do work for had his T mobile, sim card hijacked, which thing gave the hackers access to his Twitter, g mail Facebook at all other accounts. Because they were able to take over his phone number. Whereas codes were sent so strong password to factor, thin -cation, that is used in an app and not through text messaging, I think is a great start to keep in your account secure. So a lot of people these days are sort of deleting all their past tweets on Twitter. There's like software that will let you just like get rid of that, because, you know, it might come up and there's no context and you don't really know such easier to delete. Now talk about limit past posts on Facebook. Is that the same thing? Yeah. Basically, it is to an extent. It doesn't delete everything off of your Facebook account. But I think the way we've all used social media has changed quite a bit over the years. You know, in the past ten years, what I posted on Facebook ten years ago is not what I post now and we've become more aware of a public post versus a friends only post. And so what pass tweets, does, it's one button, click that takes all of your old, public posts, and drops him down to friends, only so those. Post will also disappear from your time line and only your friends will be able to see him. Now, if you wanna go into lead them you have to do that individually, but it's also a good way of maybe not having context around opposed. But if you post a personal information years ago and you forgot all about it that can be used in social engineering attacks to gain access to your cellular account or other methods. It's a good way of taking all that off line, at least from the public domain, and one click and kidding going through my head thinking I need to do that, then I remember Facebook account anymore. So. The point is moved for me. But I should tell my wife about that she should know. I was surprised when I saw at least as relates to Twitter and definitely with Facebook. When I did have an account, how many apps I had granted access to mind, you, I had my Facebook account, you know, from the from probably two thousand seven or two somewhere around there. So a long time and over the course of that time, you just ended up granting, these things you don't think about it anymore and then go back, and you see this, huge list, and you're like holy cow. I don't even know what that company is anymore. How can people trim this number down? What are some of the side effects that they might encounter as a result? That's a great point. So Facebook actually give you a list of all the apps that have been approved to your to access your account, and it's so easy to open an APs. He signed with Facebook tap that, now that has access to your Facebook account, and whatever information is included in that, but long-term developers abandoned at some point or hackers get into those databases, those app. Who then in turn gain access to your Facebook information? I we saw with the Cambridge Analytica stuff where it wasn't necessarily someone who approved Kimber, Janelle etiquette access to that app. But, you know there were still able to collect all that data and in turn into the scandal that thankfully happened I was surprised as well. A couple years ago actually might have been right around the Cambridge stuff when I went in and looked at all the app set did have access to my Facebook account. It's in settings under. I think it's privacy and there's a list of every app that has access your account that you've approved access to your couch and you could go in and manually revoke each one, there's a select all, and you can revoke all apps at once, and then there's even one or Facebook has started expiring apps access. If you haven't used them recently or if they've had, you know, got into trouble with Facebook, they actually will expire the credentials access to your account, so you could do view those as well. But you still should go in, and revoke those. Along with absent currently have access to your information. So I use Facebook but I deleted it off my phone because I don't like the idea of it. You know knowing where I'm going at all times, and crossword thing that sort of thing is there anything I can do. Can I put it back on my phone and prevented from tracking me my location? So there's two options here. One is you can it back on your phone when you get the prompts on your phone, whether or not you wanna prove location access to Facebook is just tonight, just completely turn off. Okay. Access for Facebook and it kept track. You would all however if you like Facebook checking into places or using some of the location, where futures that Facebook has you can allow it, you could turn off location history, which would location history, what they do is create a log of everywhere. You've been every day, based on where your phone goes and Facebook provides a setting in the app, both Android. An Iowa's where you could go in and turn off location history. It's in the settings under privacy. I think there's a manager locations. Settings option and then location history, and you just need to turn that off, so you can still use below can features or at least have the app installed on your phone and not worry about them, creating a map of where you've been in. It's, it's kind of interesting, if you've you your location, history that Facebook has on you, it literally is day by day map of where your phone is gone. And, you know, if someone was to gain access to your account, they're gonna have quite a bit information for it, and that's, that's really scary, and I get a little nervous about that too, because it was pretty recently that there was the news around Google, you know, obviously, Facebook two very different companies all the much of their operations are similar, but about Google basically, giving you the option to opt out a location sharing. But then it was proven that they still get these location hooks. Is there any indication that when you opt out on this, you know, through Facebook app or an Iowa versus Android? They are actually cutting off all access in that regard. You know, not that I can see nothing in the settings or anything like. That with thirteen coming out later this year. And the developer beta already out there. There's a new feature in there that blocks bluetooth ads from scanning for bluetooth devices which can be used to create maps of where you're at you go to a restaurant the same bluetooth devices, or their over time, these companies gather all the data and I've installed. The developer beta in one of the first apps, I launched in saw the prompt for bluetooth access was Facebook. So immediately denied Facebook bluetooth access on my device. So obviously there's ways around it. And GPS location is, is just one part of that. Hopefully, Google, and as we see with apple moved out for in trying to limit access to scanning for bluetooth wifi networks. One of the reasons I love this piece that I think we get we're in the mindset, it was like, oh, it's so terrifying. I can't do anything to protect myself, so I'll do nothing. And in fact, you don't have to do nothing like there, lots of steps you can take care. That's not a question. Just a statement. Go read has. That's right. Really appreciate it. You do a lot of relate kind of walk throughs, and how to and everything for your post through seen that, so definitely encourage everyone to head on over to CNN and look up. Jason's articles they're working people follow you online, if they want to get, you know, keep up to date on what you're up to. Yeah. Sure. So my main online, presence is probably on Twitter. It's Mr. sippy, MR CIP, y very easy. I'm active on their pretty much every day. I don't really use Facebook a whole lot outside of just posted and not really monitoring what goes on there. So if you want to get in touch. Let's talk on Twitter on Jason. Thank you so much for hopping on today. We appreciate it. We'll talk to ask me was great. Absolutely. We'll talk to you again. Thank you. The dust to settle on Apple's. Big developer conference. So now, we can find out what daring fireballs John Gruber thinks all these announcements really mean.

Welcome to the show. John. Meghan, so you write that for a long stretch. WW DC felt largely like an IS developer conference. But last week felt like w w DC should be what it should be an apple developer conference. Tell us what you mean by that. Well, I just think I mean I it goes back to the. History of the iphone really that, you know, even in two thousand seven when the original iphone was going to ship. There was a press release apple issued that just said, hey, we were going to ship new version of MAC, OS ten I forget what version it was twelve years ago. But hey, we pulled up a bunch of engineers. We had to put him on the iphone, it's our top priority. Mac OS ten whatever it was is going to be late. And you know, it's shipped in November instead of June. But ever since I it really has seemed like for as much money as apple has an as big a company as they are they they've been it's been difficult for them to walk into gum at the same time as the, the phrase that's been used houses of times. And I really thought last week at w this was the first deputy where it really felt like all of the major platforms specially to me MAC OS in combination with. IOS but watch OS and TV OS to there. They all moved forward in lockstep. The swift, you, I, which is to me, long-term the biggest announcement that they had last week for developers, it, it's launching it on all of these platforms at the same time you can use with you. I on the MAC I o s watch OS, TBO, S all at once. And that's just not how apple has debuted things in the last since they've become a multi-platform company usually it comes out, I for one of the platforms, usually, I o s and then in years later trickles down to the other platforms, and I really feel like they've got the ball rolling on keeping everything moving forward in lockstep. So what has been the catalyst than to drive them to be able to do that? Successfully this time if they haven't done this, you know, effectively in such a longtime why now what what has changed about now? That makes his possible. I don't know you'd have to ask, you know there. They're so secretive about what they do internally, and why they've had such a difficult time doing that. I don't know. I think part of it, though, is that swift, you, I was conceived from the get-go, as being this foundation layer for any and all platforms going forward for, for specifies in the user, interface for software. Can I think that's different? It's a catalyst was. That's a way of porting. The ipad apps to I o to MAC. But you also say that in some ways this is already depreciated talk a little bit about that. Well. So in very broad terms, starting all the way back at, at the next step era, when it was next computer company in late late eighties early nineties app kit, was the fundamental framework that you use to make apps for the next computer system. When apple acquired next and sorta reunified the company with Steve Jobs in his leadership team. They really got to things. They got a new leadership team, Steve Jobs and his trusted lieutenants, and they got the next software. And the next software revolved around advocate advocate is just basically, the fundamental framework that you use to write apps for the MAC. And it was what you used to write apps for next in aka KoKo, that's the name they gave it to, to give it a sort of consumer friendly name. When the iphone debuted in two thousand seven it didn't use app kit. It used something new called you I kit, which was basically a new version of, of app kit built for touch, and also designed by people from the next team. And from the app kit team to sort of look back at, at, at that point seven sixteen seventeen years of app kit. And said, what would we do differently? And you I kit was always very, very similar and familiar to ABC kit, developers so MAC, developers could move to s and in the early years, two thousand seven two thousand eight thousand nine. A large number of Iowa's, developers were coming from the MAC and it's sort of like a gear that turns one way, though it going from abq kit to you. I kit was very familiar and relatively easy going from the other way if you started with you, I kit and going to app kit, a lot of developers found it difficult, it was a or at least tedious and unfamiliar, because it was you I kit in some ways easier. It's sort of tough word to say with developing applications. But let's just keep it in broad terms. And so catalyst is away for you. I kit, developers people who know how to write apps fry OS to, to port their apps to the MAC without learning advocate sticking with you. I kit and hopefully doing a lot less work and maintaining one code base. And I think that's great. I think it's probably a good idea that they shipped it. But I say that it's already deprecated the year that debuts because swift UI is, I think it certainly intended to be the future of you, I programming for all of those platforms, and I think it will be I mean, there's some chance you never know how things will play out. There's some chance that developers will reject it. I, I don't see that happening though. So I feel like five years from now. There won't be many people writing new apps for either app kit, or you I kit, they're all going to be using swift, you. I whether it's for MAC or IRS. Shifting gears. A little bit one thing that I that was kind of struck by because I followed definitely Google Android side. A lot closer than I do the apple side of things among ago. Google had its developer conference Gallego with an intense, focus, our fischel intelligence, just like, hey, I was everywhere. It's basically like, hey, we have all your data. We're doing all these crazy things they I and you're gonna love it. And then apple apples event days, seemingly take a lighter approach to I feel like a couple years ago, there was more emphasis on a and we still have Siri, of course, but there's a lot lighter of touch with a from from apple right now. Why, why do you think there's such a difference in do you think that maybe this hinders the potential of what we're seeing in Siri compared to some of the competitors? What do you think? Well, I think they're a little. They're certainly late to the game, Google, you would have held up as the corporate leader in. Artificial intelligence, maybe his as far back as almost as far back as Google goes, you know, certainly from the very early days that the company. And you know, much like maps, and maps in some way, is, you know, is under that umbrella, you know, because a lot of what we wanna do. I mean, some of the war with maps is just the hard work of putting cars out on the road, driving millions, and millions of miles and taking millions and millions of pictures, and documenting. Everything some of it is just just hard work, and there's catch up to be done on that front. But a lot of what we talk about maps now is very much about a I it is about talking to your assistant and saying, here's where I wanna go. I wanna get there by public transport transmit transit or I want to drive or I wanna walk or tell me what to do. Tell me if I should walk or take transit, and, and then tell me what to do to get there. That's why I don't think apple takes it any less lightly than than Google. Now. I just think they're slightly behind because they got started later. And I think hiring John and I'm going. Butcher. His last name j g John, John. Whatever his name is the former head of Google search who's now the head of AI and machine. Learning at at apple, that's a big signal. And I they talk about it less because they talk about the experience more. But a lot of the features they're talking about our AI apple spent a lot of time in the keynote last week talking about the update to photos and they had again, I don't have his name in front of me. But they had one of the engineers on the apple photos team, using his own personal photo library. And you could tell it like his kids looked exactly like him. It wasn't one of these, like fake photo libraries shot by a professional photographer, which is a lot of times, what apple does, you know, is they'll load up demo and the photo real is shot. They may actually be photos. They are actually photo shot with an iphone, but they're shocked by a professional photographer of professional models in beautiful beaches and mountains and stuff like that. And said this guy was showing his real family photos, and the way that the Iowa. Thirteen photos app, can now organize your photo by months and years, and, and collapse. And, you know, you can go to view to see all of your photos, but it looks like they want you to default to view where it's going to skip things like screen shots. And if you have seven straight shots of a young kid blowing out the candles on a birthday cake, they're going to using a, you just sort of pick the one that they think is best and put that in the view as you scroll. So I, I just think they don't talk about it being. I think there's a lot of features, they're using that, that are driven by that. And I think we'll see more and more of that as as time goes on. It's something different than Google is using Google photos, that makes it more secure and private because everyone always talks about Google photos being, like, well, I don't wanna give my kid's, you know, face print to Google is apple doing anything different in that end. Well, the big differences that Google, apple does everything on device, and Google doesn't, but Google is moving towards that. Google is doing a lot more on device. There's an awful lot more happening on device with like. Like the pixel photos like the night-sight mode. That's you know, that's art of or machine learning. I mean, there's machine learning models that are that are allowing the nightside camera on a pixel camera to shoot in practical darkness. That's all happening on device, too. So it's not like everything Google does happens in the cloud. But Apple's difference is that they're doing everything on device? So as you mentioned, before, sometimes what apple does is just a mystery of no idea. So, for example, like, we got the ipads last year, that had the USB port, but you couldn't you couldn't actually use it. There was no USB drive support. But then, then suddenly there was in the keynote, and use folk to Craig federa ghee, and Greg joswiak about white took so long. And what did they say? I think all my show their answer wasn't as, as clear as what I've heard and other background briefings with, with folks from apple and basically, I think the answer is as often as the case, it's multi variant and there's there's just multiple variables involved and saying it was one thing is oversimplifying it. So I think on a philosophical level apple was holding out for a future where even a pro I ipad might not need USB drive access that everything, you know, that as the years go on. And we quickly turn to cloud base storage that, that cloud base storage would be enough on a philosophical level. And, and it is cleaner in theory of everything we're fast enough, and we always had fast enough network connections. It certainly is a clean way to think about things, but in practice. Sometimes you need to drive. It's just the. It's just the truth. You know last week. I did that live episode my show. I wanted to get it posted to YouTube the day after my video team worked really hard to get it edited. And there we are the day, after it's four o'clock. One of the guys has to catch a flight. It's a thirteen gigabyte file. How am I gonna how am I going to get this to YouTube? An ST card, right? They gave me an ST card now. I have thirteen gigabyte file on an ST card. I go to somewhere where there was fast internet and get it uploaded. There's, there's no way that would work in an all cloud environment. Right. Sometimes you need an ST card a thirteen gigabyte file that I wanted to post to YouTube if we had to go through the cloud, and they had put it somewhere wait for it like on hotel WI fi. And then I have to download it. It's just ridiculous. When they have they just give it to me. So why did it takes a long for the together? I think part of it was philisophical that they thought maybe they could wait it out. And I think part of it was technical where where these things really are a, a, a vector force, Curie problems. I mean you can get there's, there's a history of, of viruses, and security problems, even get by using a an infected USB stick, or an ST card. And my understanding is that for the ipad alas the paddle has thirteen apple is using a brand new USB stack and the software side they didn't. It's not just like oh copy and paste, the USB support from MAC and just stick it on the IRS call it a day. Now, when you put a USB drive in the USB port of an ipad pro it'll just show up in files up. They re implemented their USB stack from from scratch to keep it affectively sandbox so that no matter what happens, even if you have a, an ST card that has some sort of Maur something wants to auto launch when it's inserted it's all sandbox when it comes up. So I think part of it was was a technical issue where you just had to wait for people to get around to, to writing USB ST card support in a way that they felt fits with the ipads, much tighter security model than what we have on a MAC.

Joining us to talk about this city, Emily Dreyfuss senior writer at wired, welcome the show, Emily, thank you so much for having me. Mega jason. Good to have you back. You write that despite the fact that acceptance for queer people is on the rise. It's still very difficult for kids to find safe online spaces to express who they really are. Tell us a little bit about that. Yeah. It's not just online spaces. This poll really revealed that as much as we have made huge strides in its pride month right now. So we're celebrating the ways in which people have gained acceptance and rights, since the stonewall riots, this survey really also revealed that there is so much more work to do. And it looked at thirty four thousand young people between ages of thirteen and twenty four and it found that vast majorities of them are facing to still discrimination pressure from their families, and, and they are deeply sad hopeless and many of them have considered aside. Many of them have attempted suicide. So it's, it's I think the most important thing. About this survey is, is that it's a reminder that there's just so much more work to do. I think it's also a reminder of just what's online, and we talk about all the toxic stuff. That's online. I mean we live in, you know, in a bubble the bay area's know mccown at three teenagers I'm always like, you know you love who you love, and we love you. But then I don't exactly know what they're looking at online. They, they might be saying something completely different, especially now that in, because the, you know, the, the entire web is not so. No mccown and also just the whole political culture, so talk about that. Yeah. So you know there's this week and last week, we've seen YouTube come under fire for the way that it's not protecting the gay community and queer people online, all of the major platforms have taken heat in the past months and years for the ways in which they do not protect people from harassment. And when we're talking about the queer community algae. V q community in particular, you know, some of the major platforms have a real problem with taking down content that actually would be helpful to people because like transition videos or things that may be showed nudity, or are taken out of context may seem inappropriate to the platform moderators, who are not steeped in queer culture, but are actually attempts for people to find community online. And one thing that was really striking about this survey was that over eighty percent of the three or four thousand people polled said that finding a community online that would be specifically safe for LGBTQ. Use is incredibly important part of that is because a space like that, whether it's a social network platform created just for them or whether it's a private Facebook group that they've created or tumbler. Page that they've created for themselves to make knee communities out of mainstream communities is they actually understand the context and needs of LGBTQ individuals specifically match really really important in order to provide that kind of community now, you right, help for many of the kids, LGBTQ, specific specifically kids, they prefer digital means of communication in times of need times of stress. Our just curiosity talk about the, the quality of that digital connection. And whether like, how that compares to like an actual physical experience person to person experience versus getting a digitally. Do they receive the same quality of information of care that, that they're looking for? The Trevor project which operates crisis hotline that is available twenty four hours a day for anyone who wants to talk or feeling suicide or is feeling hopeless has always been something that you could call. But we've seen over the past five ten years, this impulse especially among young people to not pick up the phone necessarily make a phone call. But to actually text, this is the means in which they're living their lives and into the Trevor project has. Met them where they are. And now has a crisis text line, and you can also I n then instant message done, and the, the quality to, to answer your question, it's exactly the same these kids will still be speaking to the exact same person. They would have reached via voice, but just now they're talking on chat. And I think, you know, young people today are really comfortable, speaking in digital textual mediums. And, and I think we've seen time and again that those interactions can be really very very meaningful and end there's something I think that we can understand that is know a mediated safe-space as well about it being digital over text. It's like a little bit less daunting and one of the, it's really hard to reach out in a time of crisis. The maybe the hardest thing to do is actually pick up the phone and attempt to get help. And if people feel more. Doing that in text rather than having to have the vulnerability of using their voice than I think it's really, it's really vital and important that we that we meet them meet their needs. What about health information? I know that, you know, we've all we all know that there are like, anti choice organization, sort of masquerading as a abortion clinic. Let's say just to bring people in the same thing happening with the transition clinics like are there, people out there who want to convince someone that they're not transgender, but then offering services trans health services. So I, I haven't specifically looked into that in my reporting, but through my just reading as a consumer, I, I have read about places that, you know, frame their message to gay or or trans curious youth in a way that is intentionally confusing and studies have also shown that LGBTQ and trans. In particular, non binary news. Really do go online for information about their health about their transitions their bodies more than six gendered and maybe heterosexual youth do. And so they're the, you know, the internet is almost like honeypot LGBTQ youth to find information because they're so hungry for it. They may be don't know someone in their life that they feel comfortable asking, and so it, absolutely represents an opportunity for people with an agenda to prey upon them. If they present that information at as, as something other than what it is end this Trevor project survey really found that a majority of LGBTQ youth, not just transgender, but, you know, any kind anywhere along the spectrum sexual orientation as well. Have had people in their lives attempt to dissuade them from being, they are a whether that was apparent that they were coming out. To, whether it was a friend or a medical professional, or someone who is actively engaged in conversion therapy taps now talk a little bit about Trevor space, because it seems to be kind of, you know, obviously, it's a part of the project what, what is it? How can people get involved? So Trevor face is a, a social media network that the Trevor project runs they've done. So for years. I don't exactly remember when it started, but it's, it's, it's not brand new, but in the past year, they've been putting a lot of effort into making sure people know about it, and making it be a robust community. The idea of this space is specifically a social network to connect with other LGBTQ us and crucially, it is moderated. Actively by Trent Trevor project employees. And that's really important because they they're saying, we want this to be a an actual harassment free zone. We do not want anyone feeling uncomfortable and, and they don't want the onus of moderation to be on the users, which is true in so many other parts of the open web where the platforms will say, hey, you know, if you if you don't like the content up to users to flag it and once it's flag, we'll take it down Trevor spaces, not like that. They are someone monitoring it. Actively and will. Take get anyone off the site where the content removed from the site if it is in any way discriminatory and it's you can anyone can join it. It's free. It's Trevor space dot com. Google it. You can get there. And definitely send it to a youth that, you know, if you're an adult that, you know, you feel like this this'll be a nice place if they don't wanna talk to you. They might want to be part of this.

Faces only beginning to ramp up of many feel that it has potential to take fake news to a whole new level in a bad way. Particularly as the technology is refined and the fakes become ever more convincing were saying quick ramp up already joining us to talk about the Dunkelberg, deep fake that hit Instagram his days ago is Samantha Cole from other board advice, welcome. Samantha. It's great to have you for joining us. So perhaps it actually makes more sense to begin with the Nancy Pelosi video that hit a few weeks back, which isn't necessarily a deep fake. But it's kind of a long the same vein, right? Her audio artificially, slowed made her sound drunk that was ultimately posted to Facebook. What, what was the call that was made around whether that video in particular state up or or was taken down? And how that relates to the video. Sure. Yeah. Video was really interesting because it definitely wasn't he pick. There was no high-tech, augured make editing happening there. It was just slowed down to make our junk, like you said, so that one got millions of us shared thousands of times. It's red really quickly and basically Facebook chose to keep it up. They said that they were going to de prioritize it, which basically means they're going to push it down through people. Feed. It doesn't pop up on your feet organically, so much, and it would put it alongside third party back checker information, the face would be for product, every have said that the company's thinks it's important to make their own choices for what to believe and to give them all the information that they need to make those decisions and type of themselves. So the video up, it's just got some this resign now. Now, of course, we have the leader of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg pronouncing some, let's say sinister things in fake video post on Instagram this one definitely falls in line of what a deep fake, actually is talk a little bit about how this video came to be. Says that one was part of an art, project, actually out of the UK art project looks at how companies use our data and data privacy basically, so an artist partnered with researchers and people who actually make fakes accompanying called Channy, and they made the videos using a proprietary over them that is essentially a depict the way that they explained it to me, but it's trained on twenty one seconds, I believe of a video of Mark from two thousand seventeen where he's giving that address about Russian election, Russian election meddling and yeah, it's mashed up with basically someone putting his face to say, make it look like he's saying something that he never did he's saying that he's got control of. You know, all these people's stolen data. So that. The basics on how that came to be. It only took twenty one seconds of original video create this fake of Mark with bird, which is pretty pretty interesting. So where does it stand? Now, is it still up on Instagram? Did did Facebook take it down. What's the situation with this video now? Told us that they were going to do the same stance with this as they did with the video, and they plan to do with all misinformation going forward on the platforms. Basically, they have a third party fact checkers, something that will market as all the time that it is all, and then filter it through people see prop up so much, basically. The prioritizing it so. Yeah, it's still up. They this is their stance on this information now. So that's what they have to stick to the roadmap going forward, so regarding the Luxembourg video, it's super obvious to me, and I imagine a lot of people that the voice is not his, it's kind of it's disconcerting, what he watches, like there's some qualities, but it's obviously someone doing a person, and also that, you know, you can spot the digital artifact around the mouth a little bit things seem smear. At times. But would you say like a deep deep fake of this caliber is enough to, to fool, or trick, a lot of people like and could that mean that the damage would already be done anyways, even if it's pretty obvious to some of the totally fake? I mean, I think yet, you're definitely right that it doesn't look completely real. If you're watching those things. But if you think about the way people consume media. It's on a phone. The images are small grainy a lot of the times quality is not good. So you have those artifacts in a video, and you can't really tell like how equality is this video of someone the voices definitely not him? Obviously. I think it sounds like Bill Nye a little bit. Extreme and they, but, you know, they had a voice actor kind of mimic, the way the speaks so that they could done. You've got to make the and resulting video better and they can match it to video of that speaker. So, yeah, I think just to kinda got your question, I think it would trickle out of people if it was out of context from, you know, a saying, this is not real big just came upon your feet organically. It might raise some flags, because the wouldn't say something like I'm in control of Celinda, that would be as but I think just taking it as video and itself. It is really easy for these things, especially fast. And then once the checking in the verification goes through that takes, you know, minutes to Dave, maybe, and that's the damage already done like it's already spread people believe they. Leave. It's out of your control at that point. So I think it's possible there's already a bias built in right? Like we believe what we wanna believe. I mean it's happened to me, a lot of times, like I'll see something on Twitter that, you know, is not, not conservative. It's very liberal. And I'll think, oh, yeah, of course, I, I believe that right away. Because it's kind of what I want to believe, and then you find out that it's false. Exactly. I think that's what we saw with pussy video, if you want to believe you don't like a new to video of her foreigners beach, or, you know, acting on stage, you know, you might hit the share button immediately. And this Larry us, everybody look, I think that these things confirm vices, once we see them, and that's the real dangerous takes. No, we're starting to see some some movement in, you know, in the US government, at least around the potential of the face, and potentially the damage. Of course. Everybody, you know what we keep hearing is deep fakes are gonna come along. And they're gonna make, you know, the, the twenty twenty election, a lot more challenging, or, you know, so we're our awareness is raising a little bit around us, and there's the deep fake Bill. That's going through right now are what? What can you tell us about that? Are you aware of the deep fake Bill? Do you think it's adequate? What do you think? Yeah. I mean that Bill or do they believe this week creek me from Ron, but it basically would force creators of take to watermark, their creations. Wis close that it fake or maybe in some way and put a watermark on a video that would tip off. Researchers or friends analysts to the Saint fake. So I think that's a really good start. Having these conversations is a good start. Having the conversation we're having now is productive. I think any time we can talk about nealer the and vital indications of things being Martha's fake when they're actually true. And what is truth is all productive conversation. So, yeah, I think that Bill will be really interesting to see the, the repercussions of that support behind that. Yeah. But I'm not sure beyond that would have to see. And so I mean is there I'm always a little bit reg registered to say, like regulation is the answer because I'm afraid that the people making the regulation, don't know as much about the technology as, as they need to. I mean, does that I know that this is part of the section to thirty of the communication decency, act is what I think that they're trying to change. Do you worry at all that regulation might go too far? Yeah. I mean, that's definitely concerned that quite a few people have raised who are much more well steady on this than I am. But just in my own experience and listening to them. I think that, that would put a lot of power in government, hands decide what shoe and what's not, and not definitely scary to me. And I think it should be concerning anyone who cares about this stuff. But yeah, it's, it's definitely not the answer to legislate, a lot of I would rather see legislation around like I said, like media literacy, or ownership of bodily atonomy, or this all started from videos of women in porn that were used against their consent. I'd love to see laws around revenge porn before I saw around winning watermarks on video definitely not the only answer, but it's a start. Not only that, like, when I hear from the Bill, you know, we require you to put a watermark on your thing that you're putting out there to try and trick people or whatever the case may be. I mean, obviously there, the onus would fall on the people making the tool, so Dobie, for example, has, you know, hooks and their software that enable this, and they're working on that more. I could see obviously a company like adobe being like okay, great, we'll build a watermark in here so that it's easily identified. But there are a lot of people out there who have no interest in making their, their fake video easily identifiable to anyone. That's the point. So who knows how successful that will be, but overall, this is a really fascinating kind of development, that's happening in the world of technology. And really appreciate you taking time out of your day to talk to us about as ethical is with vice vice dot com, working people follow you online, if they wanna follow your work. Twitter at an legal or checkout aboard on by right on thank you against Fanta. We'll talk to Sheehan. And finally, you thought we were done with interviews because usually we do three to four. We've got a fifth. This is like a super size episode. I actually had the opportunity to chat with Dale Dougherty yesterday. He's the man behind maker media, and well, there's some news around this. So why don't you go ahead and check out my interview with Dale? Now, some of you may heard the news over the weekend. I know I did it made me sad maker media the company behind make magazine and maker faire is closing down. Joining me to talk about this news. As Dale Dougherty founder and CEO of maker, media, del welcome to the show. Hey, thank you for having me. It's really great to get you here. Although, like I said, I'm sad that it's under these circumstances because maker, faire, make magazine everything you guys are doing is so and have for the last, what fifteen years super inspirational talk a little bit about what, what has transpired to lead to the closing down of the operations as they are now. Yeah, well, I think. You know. You know, it's kind of a business failure in a way. It's a sculptural or or sorry. You know, it's, it's, it's, you know, the structure of the business doesn't work really well for what we're trying to do. And I've been trying to patch it for a couple years, and keep it going. And it just seemed time to say, well, this just isn't working, it's really about, you know, I think to, to differentiate Sunday when I told the team is our mission is wonderful our businesses and so great, you know, we have we've struggled and we sometimes just have to face that. That's not gonna get any better in. This was the last option. We had I don't think it's the end. We'll talk about that in a minute. But it is a transformation or restructuring that perhaps can put us in a better way. Ultimately to do what we want to do all along. Sure. So. I mean, one of the obvious you know, the things that people can really point to is the success, at least the seeming success of all these maker fairs that are happening around the world from outside, looking in at looks like it's been an enormous success. But what has changed over the years? What's so challenging about that model? Well, I think that, you know that when we talk about maker, faire, there are two that we produce and, and New York in San Francisco. And then there's a network that we license out their independently produced and they'll those will continue, they are doing well, the while maybe a little bit of a morale issued with some people, I think though, the pick it up and can keep going the issue with particular and they are successful. We just did three weeks ago was, unfortunately, had a lot of rain, people still came out and people love the event and, and I just, you know, sometimes you doubt yourself, but when I was in the midst of all those people there, and I said, this works, you know, people love it, and it's important that we are able to do it. But you know, we've had a diminishment in, in corporate sponsorship, which underwrites the event, you know, we have. Sponsors. And we have we sell tickets and those kind of two pieces of revenue and, and behind it, it's, it's about taking the risk to do it. You don't know how many people are gonna show up, you don't know, whether it's going to rain, you don't know all these other things. And I think when we had more corporate sponsorship, it provided a bit of a buffer, you know. So increasingly it was falling on me to take all the risk in doing the event, and that just doesn't work kind of. Personally got over extended with it. And, and so, you know, the I have to step back and say, is there a different way of doing it different way of looking at it. It's not the problem with the event. It's the problem of, you know, the financial risk in doing these events. So it's just kind of import to separate those out a little bit the uncertainty of knowing you're going to get on the other end. But, but as you said, the licensing of some of these events that's still going to happen. Yeah. I, I will, I mean the company's going through this restructuring process. It'll be, you know, I hope I am trying to go to get the assets of the company as founder in to be able to make those kind of decisions in the future should someone else, get them. They might not do what I would do with them in a bit of a struggle to get to the next phase here, but I'm pretty confident of that. I can get there. But then we're gonna have to ask the community to support it in ways that they have in. The past. But I'll tell you the whole process, going to zip a great sadness, for me, but there's also great happiness hearing from people of what this is meant to them. How many years they've been involved with how it's kinda help them? Get where they wanted to be in life that, you know, I don't know all the all the ways it's intersected with people, whether it's the event or the magazine, but it's really good to hear from people. Tell me this, this makes a difference. This help create a world that I became part of. Absolutely. So you're not in this in this scenario, you're not filing for bankruptcy necessarily. You're moving toward a possible transition to nonprofit, which when I first heard this news that was the thought that, that really came to mind, you know, maybe this would work in a better capacity as on profit. But what does that what does that look like how does that transition happen? And does that how, how does that affect or change what the public sees from the outside looking? Well, I, I don't think it would change at all from the public in and, you know, most people thought we were nonprofit I to be honest. But I you know, nonprofits has strong missions and, and then begged for funding. I, I don't I don't wanna be that kind of nonprofit though. You know, I see us in some ways like an association, you know where we have members and we do things that the members value, and they have a voice in that. And that's, that's the kind of nonprofit. I'm thinking of in may be something else. I'm looking to ops and some other structures that might actually reflect the kind of community and Konami that we want to build in this world. And that gets me excited because I think. One of the issues is, how do you keep things going that the market doesn't necessarily value, you know that, you know, education's one of them Emag print magazines and other one and some degree affair, that is more about learning an exploration creativity than it is about a trade show with, you know, that's the difference that I'm trying to right now, trying to figure out how to protect the what we've created and what it means. And then I'm trying to figure out how sustain it. So that future generations can benefit. So, so that's kind of the primary goals in thinking about what's the new structure going forward? Okay. Okay. Now, I read that you mentioned interview, a few days ago that the closure of your company is a sign of the changing times in San Francisco. I think I have a sense of what you mean by this. But I'm curious to get your take. What do you mean by that? Exactly. Well, I you know, I think make has been part at maker, faire particulars been part of a kind of counter cultural effort to almost connected to the sixties connected to a lot of. You know. Up that we're not stream things, and, and, and I think, you know, San Francisco's become increasingly about money, money and status. And I think in oh that's not. That's not culture. Right. That's just something else, and, and there has to be a place in our heart, if not in our city for this kind of creative communities exploring and expressing themselves and, you know, maybe we go away but. You know, maybe we don't but I'd say, you know, people should ask, what kind of community, do you want to support, what devalue, there are certainly companies here making billions of dollars and I'm not sure they're creating an economy, that's has participatory as we like that benefits, more and more people. And that really is my goal of the maker movement, that there are ways for you to learn to get involved to, to whether starting a business, or solving, an important social issue, you know, helping others learn how to do things, you know that this benefits, lots of people and not just a few people on sandhill, so, you know, how does how, how do we ensure those things survive? How do we ensure that they in fact thrive? So that's kind of all, I mean by it. I mean it's not San Francisco. Celebrate. Place. But it's you know, sometimes I went to visit a big company a couple of weeks ago that heard that we're having troubles on, and it's one of those companies with billions of people, but they had this maker space in the a first floor took up the first floor. It was best hardware, you could ever imagine. And the people there were makers and yes, they work in this big owners say, but they love what they're doing. They're prototyping doing hardware and, you know. You know, sometimes loose sight of that. And you know that those are the people creating value, those are the people who are productive nasc- themselves as part of this movement. The company may not see that connection. But there are people within these companies that do and I'm proud to that. They're part of what we do. Yeah, yeah. And you've got a lot to be proud of because of an awesome legacy. You've pulled down you've enlivened and lit, lit a spark in people and help to kind of create like when you talk about the maker movement, I feel like maker media, and the work that you've done with maker, faire make magazine is such a huge part of that movement. And that's something super proud of what about what about schools like do think. Oh, that's actually, if there's a legacy an idol, like think of, you know, this in the past, but, you know, we have the I think the most important impact maker movement, as had is, is coming in through the side door into schools. Sure. Hand. You know, teachers bring in students, bringing in and really changing the nature of learning in school. You know, I, I have to say our federal governments and state governments administrations there basically clueless. And they don't really seem to care about what real learning looks like, but I know what it is. I see it and I've tried to spread it to bringing maker spaces giving kids the opportunity to explore and have ideas and develop those ideas. And you know, it's I believe that, you know, to the degree that America's leader in technology. It's because people often on their own, you know, found ways. To learn this way, you know, and maybe a parent supported or someone else it wasn't, you know, very often in schools. But I think if we want more people to participate in tech economy, we better change, our educational system so that they have the opportunity to use tools. Learn how to use them effectively, and most importantly, exercise, that creative mind. So it becomes something really good. Yeah. A lot of opportunity, there, speaking of opportunity, how can people who want to be a part of helping out on this greater mission as, as you guys kind of move into this next direction? Whatever the, you know, the future has in store for you. Is there a way that people that are super like driven an interested, and want to be involved as their way that they can help you directly? They can reach out to me. I'm Dale Dougherty at g mail dot com. I think you know next week or so I hope we can, you know, set up something new that will allow people to become members of this new organization that will support maker fairs make make media, and we're gonna need people to show show support for that. So if people have other kinds of ideas, you know, you know, they can reach me, but right now I have to ensure that the financial support to move forward. And, and if people are willing to talk to me about that, you know, I'd be happy to tenor Tatum, headed to the nation makers this. Friday, Saturday, Sunday in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and I'll see a lot of people from the community. They're awesome. Well dale. Maker media has in, you know, in my opinion success.

Books I Love That You Might Love Too (Chapter 1)

"Books, books. I like books. What do you know about books? Phil, I'm singing a book song right now sit sit. Sit sh. Books, books. I like books. What do you know about books, books, books? Do you read books, Ari Lada books. What you don't know about me is I renowned fiction books. I'm obsessed with books and books. I got five hundred books. Phil come on. I need a studio manager. I had to get this dog out of here. Hello, thank you for being here today. I'm going to take you on a journey, a journey of my bookshelf and when I say bookshelf, I mean the Powell's of books that are literally all over my house. No space is safe. Not the bathroom, not the kitchen, not the bedside table. Honestly, there are books in my bed under the covers. I'm sleeping with books there. I said it cats out of the bag. Consider this volume. One of the books gem labs and feels like you'll love to if you're looking to enhance your personal growth, open your mind or create more opportunities in your life. These books will be great tools for you. So without further ado, I give you blue. All right. B. o. k. books. Ooh. So books. I was an English literature major. I think you know that I was pre law, but and I honestly did not love to read. I, I actually wrote reports on so many books that I never read. Does anybody remember cliff notes. It was like cliff notes and watching the movie. What I came to realize is more than literature. I actually really love books to read books that I learned something from rather than just like for entertainment or fantasy or like as an escape. Like I love self help philosophy, spirituality autobiographies business books. So if you're looking for my ten favorites scifi books, he won't find them anyways. When what's interesting about my affinity toward self help as a as a John rea- is that I get that from my mom and she she's been reading that all that stuff for so long. She has a massive, massive bookshelf and boy. Beach, Florida. The beautiful cascade lakes in Boynton Beach, Florida full of these books. And when I was younger, like socially, like middle school, high school, she was always like telling me about that stuff. We would listen to. Wayne Dyer on cassette in the car on the way to school in all. I really wanted to listen to shock con, but turns out now I have like Wayne dyers the audio book. Is that what they're called from audible anyways. That's a little back story if you've listened to the well, I don't actually, though it does episodes titled, but it's like the what I did to feel better episode. I talk a little bit there about, you know, reading books, and although I've always kind of picked up books from time to time. I feel like prior to like the last year, I was definitely reading things that had more to do just with creativity in business. I really wasn't thinking about like my own. Personal philosophies and my spirituality and like understanding myself and a big part of my healing process has been to to do just that like understand why I feel like I feel why have the thoughts I have how to win at life. And I have found a lot of great books about that. I I've, I've talked in the past to about just that voice in our heads and and just how much our thoughts and our thinking really control what we're doing. A lot of the things I'll talk about here today or introduce you to which I'm so excited to tell you about these books because there's just so much there and there and this is like a drop in the bucket for the book Caesar, just like over the last year and really throughout my life, some of the books that have had the most impact for me, but really being able to understand how to distance yourself from your thoughts, how did not identify with your thoughts and how to live in the current moment? All of which are very challenging things to wrap your brain around, like the the mechanics of. Of how we work and why we are the way we are and that it's been set since since humans were invented, who invented humans was Benjamin Franklin. I can't remember. It's a lot. There's a lot to unwind from, but being able to sort of deconstruct that and give myself some space in just some broader understanding about the universe in which we live in and how people work and how energy works and ancient healing practices and philosophies like has really helped me unwind from. Some thinking that has been really devastating for me that's causing me stress that has caused me pain that has caused me so much anxiety. Like if you having Zayed's which I know a lot of you do so many of us suffer getting this perspective will change your life. I promise you. And so these are some of the things that I've read to to get that as well as like improve my work, my life, my relationships, all sorts of stuff. Okay. Okay. No more delays. Let's dig in. I will now give you my first list of book recommendations. I'll give you their titles. Do my very best to pronounce the authors names and explain what I loved and why I think they will be value to you books, books, books, books by. Okay. So something interesting about me is every once in a while I just decide, I absolutely do not like something or someone and. A lot of times is not based in anything is just like the feeling that I'm hit with, and then I just leaned into it which is probably surprising for you because I'm very nice and open hearted and I never like publicly criticized things privately though. I'm real dick. One of these things was the book. You are a bad ass by Jensen zero for whatever reason. I, here's why I think I was like no to this book, and then I'm going to don't worry if you're Jensen's aero a friend of Johnson's era or anyone who's read this book on about to tell you why it's fucking epic. But I think it was a lot of people suggested I should read it. And sometimes when people tell me I should do something I immediately want to not do it. Therapist, and I tried to work for a while on what that was, but at least now I'm aware of it. So I was just like, I think the idea of like being a bad ass I don't know. I just I was like something about just the idea of people wanting me to read it in the title was not connecting with me. It's ridiculous. You should not base things on stuff like that. If one hundred people tell you that something would be great for you to read, they're probably right. Even if people tell you that they're probably right. So I've had the book probably since it came out, which I think might have been a couple years ago. God forbid, I do research. I need like a researcher for the show. Does anyone want to be a researcher for me? Wait, that would help me so much if you want to help me do research for my show. Please Email me at j. g. o. k. at Bando dot com. Oh my God. That'd be epic in. The meantime, I'm stalling and trying to see when this book was published twenty thirteen? Okay. Spock that's a long time ago. I'm very slow this game. It's the most of you probably read this, but I was I was at work like a month ago and Christina. Our director of social media who was on the social media episode with me was like, you know, I started reading this book. You are a bad ass and it has to do with a lot of the things that you've been talking about to me. And I had been talking to her about like spirituality and enlightenment and how why our brains work, the way they do and our thoughts are not us and blah, blah, blah. And she was like, it's really good, and I was like, maybe that's a sign. I'm very into science. So I was like, maybe I should read this. So I literally took the following Saturday and read the book cover to cover without stopping, which for someone with ADD. Is a huge testament to how good this book is and what a great an easy read it was and why I start with this as because I feel like this is a great point of entry to a lot of the other books I'm gonna talk about because gen does a really amazing job of just putting it in terms that are easy to digest, and she's talking about to me some really big subjects that even for me, I've think about a lot and have found it challenging to bring it to a broader audience without sounding like, I don't know so out there. So you know, she talks about our subconscious and and our thoughts and self doubt and self love, and and really gives just like valuable advice in everything's digestible. There are a lot of chapters, but that's because they're. They're not so long and drawn out. There's a chapter called lead with your crotch. So obviously very interested in that perfection being overwhelmed and just like, really how, how to find happiness. I think she's done some other books on more specific topics, but you are about us by Jensen. Sarah start there. You can read it in a singular Saturday, and that will be a good precursor to some of the other books that I am going to tell you about. Hi, everybody future Jen here, helping out, pass Jen with some tricky author names turns out past already made a mistake that she didn't know she was making Jensen. Cerro is not Jensen zero. She's Jen Johnson chair at, oh, much, nicer. Very cool. Also coming up, you'll hear me get confused over Eckhard tollway that's a battle. I mean, that's your two camps. There's Eckhart toll an Eckhart tollway, but Google tells us it's totally, and then I actually got one right. Shocked. They go. Wayne is shock. D, go, Wayne, go Jen. Sometimes you get it right. Sometimes you get it wrong. I love you equally no matter what goodbye. Okay. Second book, one of my very, very favorites, especially when it comes to just like the soul and. Spirituality and enlightenment and just fucking clarity is the untethered soul, the journey beyond yourself by Michael a singer, I knew Michael singer growing up. I don't think he's the one that wrote this book though. Here's what I would say. You don't have to read the whole book. You don't have to read anything. You don't wanna read if you just want to dabble, I would reach after five on infinite energy. I would also read chapter fifteen, the path of unconditional happiness. And honestly, there's so much in this book, but one of the biggest things which is just a a sentence in an amongst thousands of sentences in this book when it comes to happiness, we have only one choice we need to make do. We want to be happy. Or do we not wanna be happy and. That's the decision we have. We cannot control what happens to us. We cannot control what happens to people. We love we can only control our perspective and our commitment to happiness. And to say that this doesn't mean that things won't get bad and won't be challenging, but we can decide if we want to remain connected to happiness or if we want to let. Unhappiness be a pronounced part of our lives and that that chapter fifteen talks about that. He talks about it throughout the book, but listen again, so many lessons in all of these books be kind to yourself. It is. I've been working diligently on this for most of my life, but very over the last six months, very diligently. It's easy to forget the stuff, but just what, what a great. What a great. Blank. You can fill it in. Okay. My other favorite book I think I think each I think each book is going to be like and my other favorite book. But this next book is called the seat of the soul. It's by Gary Zubkov. Oprah loves all of these books. By the way, I don't know that any of these books have not been approved by Oprah. Well, maybe a couple, but, but this one end the last one are like late eighties, early nineties. So so their books I've read multiple times, but seat of the souls, very spiritual. It will change your perception on what it is to be human. It helps you understand your ego, your personality in your soul. Those are all different things. Non-physical teachers, the lifetimes we may have had consciousness it. It's some deep ash shit. Don't get me wrong, but if you're open to it, it's incredibly interesting. And there are a lot of like there's lot. Science and facts behind this stuff, which to me is important because I'm a believer, but also a bit of a doubting Thomas. So when something that's like. So out there could also be supported and I feel like I've experienced Blake proof of all of this in my life now it really helps, but it's a, it's a great read. Also very digestible. The chapters are really specific. There's a lot in here about intention which is important just in life. Just the idea of intention has come up so much for me. But also if you're a creative, I think is really important. This is in one of the chapters about intuition and he talks about. Emotional cleansing, which is so important and is addressed in both this book and the untethered soul, like how you can let thoughts and emotions pass three you instead of holding onto them, which is so important. The idea of just remaining clear and being able to sort of like receive the information is a big part of intuition and his like are natural navigation system, but, but this is this part is something I really believe in allow yourself in orientation of openness, towards your life and the universe to approach the questions in your life with a sense of faith and trust that there is a reason for all that is happening. And that reason at its heart is always compassionate and good. This is an essential thought that needs to be in place in order to activate and cultivate intuition. Get it singer. Okay. Eckhart tole lay slash Eckhart tole another one of Oprah's favorites. He's deep, he is deep. He has many books, but the power of now and north. Okay, fine. I snuck into books on under one are both so good. You know, the power of now obviously has a lot to do with living in the now, and it's just such that concept is such a powerful tool to have in your emotional and physical toolbox. So I cannot remember it enough also if I loaned you my copy of the power of now, can you please give it back to me because I cannot find it in my house. And I know that there are a lot of highlights in their a new earth is more about this is the one that Oprah's says is a must read is more about just the shift in human consciousness and how if we create the shift how the world can change, I have found it. Very deep, but very interesting and very helpful in dealing with all the emotions on having about how the world is changing, both good and bad. And honestly, it's so spot on. And if you're listening to this year, probably already making the shift, but but I can Ernie feel the shift in human consciousness. I feel people talking about things in like understanding humanity and ourselves in a much more evolved, mature is not the right word in a more evolved way. This really helps put a lot of information around it and it's important in it's important in the future of our world, because if we can change as individuals we can, we can change as a as a group as humanity. This, the deepest most philosophical episode ever. What's the next book Jan an oldie, but a goody, the four agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz's. He's a leading member of the new thought movement which is worth googling. Biggest takeaway from this book is. A full personal philosophy that I thought I made up myself, but I think for him, which is just the idea of like doing your best at any time. And if you if you're familiar with bandeau than you know that we have sold a sweatshirt and a t shirt since we launched apparel years and years ago that said I did my best on it. It was something that it was a sweatshirt that I made for myself with iron letters and based off of the idea of whether I, whether the outcome was what I wanted or not did I do my best and if so, that's really the only thing I can control. He talks about a lot of things in this book, but that was one of them and it and it really has helped me so much. Here's a passage that I I, I wrote some of this stuff, so logoff like, oh, I have a passage in here. How cool. Your best is going to change from moment to moment. It will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick under any circumstance. Simply do your best and you will avoid self judgment, self abuse and regret. Ain't that the truth, a good book. It's a small book, please read it. Okay. I was listening to the goop podcast shout out to Gwyneth Paltrow. I don't know. I remember when I used to pretend that Gwyneth Paltrow was my best friend and that'll thing. And then a lot of people actually thought we were best friends were not. I met her briefly once she won't remember, but I did because she's like a nurse angel. Anyways, Oprah was her, I guess it which is an epic epic interview epic episode. If you are looking for something to listen to, I cried the whole time and an actually listening to that reinforced some of this reading it, some of the books I already had. Some I had this one I hadn't. It's called anatomy. Of the spirit. And she talks about introducing who wrote anatomy of the spirit way to have it. Here. Caroline, miss the Natta me of the spirit, the seven stages of power and healing, and an Oprah talks about league introducing this and people being like, what? What are you talking about this one is for you? Lake wellness and alternative healing peeps very, very, very interesting out sort of introducing some alternative thinking about why we suffer physically and how we can be healed and how spiritual growth. Physical wholeness and wellness sort of all come together, I would say, especially if you you are ill or suffering physically, there's some really, really interesting stuff in here, but if you're suffering or know someone that is, it could be something minor or something major. There's just some really interesting thinking in this book. She also obviously talks about spirituality in the importance of that. And I think that the beauty of spirituality is it comes in many shapes and sizes in as someone who grew up Jewish, never really connected to religion like formalized religion, always very interested in. It took a bunch of religion courses in college, but just couldn't attach to something like the more I've read and understood about spirituality like the words that that a lot of these authors use are just different words than what other people use when it connects to their spirituality. But every. Everyone's really saying the same thing, and they've been saying it for a really long time, which I think is so interesting, but as it as it relates to wellness, she says, spirituality is far more than a psychological and emotional need. It is an inherent biological need. Our spirits are energy and our personal power are all one and the same force. She also talks about shock res- shout out to shock rise, and especially if you follow me on Instagram at gen Gotch shout out to my own Instagram, then you know that I've gotten into Rakia healing, and I think shock res- are so fucking interesting. Plus the represented by the rainbow, which I also think is interesting, which leads me to a quick shout out to the shock. Shocker handbook Shalala Sharon and Bodo. Jay begins ski. They wrote it. It's a cool. Book if you're interested in at all in that or you just love rainbows. I love this book so much. It has helped me understand lick personal energy, and I don't know. I just think it's cool if you're interested that might be a little little far down the past. Hi, I wanted to pop in for a second to reintroduce you to tomboy ex. They sell underwear, but they are so much more than that. They are two women with emission. It's a female founded company and outside of selling a lot of really cute underwear in a lot of. Shapes and sizes, and Fitz, and everything else that you would want an underwear, they're all about body positively. Inclusivity. Female empowerment. And more than anything else. They're sponsoring this podcast, which you know is not something that I've talked about before. Well, I mean, obviously you could. You could tell people sponsor the podcast, but I think it's really important for us to band together and support companies that Stanford something. And also that are open to sponsoring podcasts like mine because I'll tell you not everyone is, and that's okay, I get it. I'm not mad at it. I would be mad at you. I don't even know you, but I feel like I wanna shine a light on people and companies that are. Either doing something that I think is great creating a product that I feel like you will feel is useful, and that are willing to become part of the conversation about de stigmatizing mental health and all the other, and all the other hard parts about being human that we talk about here. And when I say we, I mean me and sometimes my mom and dad. Fran and Niamey in addition to the traditional tomboy definition. Also added any girl or woman or person who does their own thing dresses the way they want gets their hands dirty and keeps their mind open was is an always will be a tomboy. Let's buy some underwear shall we go to tomboy x dot com. Slash j. g. o. k. and check out their special bundles and pack pricing. J. okay. Listeners get an extra one, five percent off with code. You guessed it j. g. o. k. to Gog I carry JJ. Okay. Without Saint Gok. Sorry, again, co JJ. Okay. For an extra fifteen percent off ditch whatever you're wearing for a pair of tomboy x. underwear go to tomboy x dot com. Slash g. Okay. Bye. Okay. Changing gears Gary Chapman, the five love languages. I am astonished to find out how many people don't know about the five love languages, except for I only found out really about the five love languages. When I went into couples therapy, it doesn't even matter if you're in relationship the supplies to so many things. But essentially he he's developed or identified these five love languages words of affirmation acts of service receiving gifts, quality time in physical, touch skin hunger. Obviously, physical touch is important to me and one of my love languages, it helps you identify what years are and then it also helps you to identify what what they are in the people around you. And what you find out is if you're especially in a partnership or relationship, but it it really does apply to like if you're a manager, if you're trying to make some. Feel good or feel loved or or whatever. I don't know what the word for whatever is praised and your love language is acts of service. So you do something for them. Because you're trying to show them that you care about them, but their love languages, love language is words of affirmation. They're not feeling it. So it's like literally like speaking a different language. And I think that was like an interesting thing in in my marriage and in lots of lots of relationships. I've had friendships and work relationships and romantic relationships that like someone's trying to tell me they care and I'm just like annoyed and vice versa. And identifying this is just so helpful. It's such a great tool that you can take into any kind of relationship. And let me tell you the best thing about understanding yourself when you gain that kind of deep understanding of yourself, you understand people so much better. It's incredible, and it will just enhance your life in. A million ways which may be an overestimation, but you you get what I'm talking about. Okay. More books, mar books, books, books, books, we love books, OMG the success principles. By Jack canfield. Jack canfield is the creator of chicken soup for the soul. Does anyone remember chicken soup for the soul and the forty two follow up books to chicken soup for the soul. This is a, this is a great book. I used this book very diligently probably about twelve years ago to kind of well, the subtitle is how to get from where you are to where you wanna be. He he definitely subscribes to the the law of attraction or the secret or what whatever you wanna call it and visualizing what you want and manifesting it, which I'm a huge believer in and have seen happen for myself and for others. So many times that there's just no way you couldn't believe it. Plus every book I read refers to it. I mean, even in the Jensen Sarah book, she talks about it. It's time to come to terms with the fact that that's real. But this is so brass tacks where I feel. A lot of other books about it tend to be a little bit more. I wanna say the word hippie, but that's not, you know, just like it's more of like these broader thoughts. This is like, how do you apply it? And also I feel like if you're lost from like a greater sense of life, like, what am I going to do or how do I get the job I want or the career I want or the success I want or the happiness I want like they're just straight up useful tools here that that makes sense. It's a big book, but you can you don't have to read it cover to cover. You don't have to read any book cover to cover, except for my book will in you should read busies book cover to cover. That's coming out soon. But my book come out next year, please read it cover to cover. It will make me feel so good while I'm on the subject, creative visualization by we might need future Jen to come in and just literally pronounce every author's name. Shaq d, go Wayne. This was the. The first book I ever read on creative visuals, ation use the power of your imagination to create what you want in your life. So very similar to the success principles, but definitely more of that hippie thing I was talking about, but but fun. Good. Read, give it a look, the war of art, Stephen press field. So this was one that was recommended to me by a bunch of people. This, I think I might have mentioned this in the creative block episode, but. I was feeling really stuck creatively, very, very paralyzed by the voice in my head that was telling me like just inciting so much fear and myself while I was like getting these big creative projects off the ground specifically, it podcast hosted by me, the one you're listening to right now and writing a book. And a lot of people recommended this book to me and it's great, very digestible. Another one of those like chapters that are one page long, which is my favorite because I, I read three chapters last night, but really talks about how our thoughts create fear, what they're trying to do and why we should take control of that. It helped me enormously. So again, especially if you're a creative or really anyone that's taking on a big in Denver and just feels blocked by your own thought. What's this is great. The war of art, Stephen press field. The accidental creative by Todd Henry Todd Henry has become a friend of mine. We're not like best friends, but we've had dinner together. So that's something he was one of the first podcast that I listen to. He has a podcast called the accidental creative. The accidental creative was also the first book he he wrote, he has several books now they're all great and his whole deal is like helping those of us that have to create on demand. This book is is a lot about that. So if you if you within your career have to create on demand or a creative professional or even work with creative professional's, this is such a great book and again, like a lot of knowledge and skills that can be implemented. So. Highly useful. So I've kind of taken you. I'm winding down, believe it or not are winding down. I have like six more books list, but I'm just going to stop here because I think this is this'll be a great start, and then we'll come back for a volume to where it definitely talk about Brunei Brown because she's super important. But I feel like if I dig into that, that's gonna be a whole other thing. And I think Todd Henry book ends. Wherever I started, which I think was maybe the untethered soul. So there's a nice range in here of, well, I probably say this in the in the wrap up, but but anyways, like there's a little bit of everything in here. So I hope I hope that part helps not like a bunch of books on the same subject. They're definitely the first half all sort of speak to. I don't know to me the idea of personal enlightenment, which I have found incredibly helpful. And then some of these are a little bit more on like things that you can implement in your life and your work, but all have made a huge difference for me. I hope they do the same for you. I'm excited for you to read them, spread the word about them, and I will definitely come back with more because I can already think of. Twelve books. I wanna tell you about, but that'll be too overwhelming. So start here, get your book on girls and fight and the five gentlemen that listen as well by. Okay. Are you excited about these books? I wonder which one you'll read. I, I've actually started giving books as gifts like before. I would give someone a nice candle or a pair of earrings for their birthday. Now I give them one of these books. Is that cool not cool as it, maybe it is. Let's just make it cool. So like I mentioned, I have piles of books to get through. So keep your eyes and ears peeled for volume who in the next few months. Okay. Now go on, get out of here and read some books by. All right, everyone. I have an announcement courtesy of our Powell's at to me if you happen to miss it. Girl boss, radio recently launched a special podcast series with them called in progress every week, the best and brightest women take a deep dive into their everyday journeys, and the things that do and don't help them get where they're going. There's career advice, relationship, advice, self-care tips, productivity hacks. Basically everything you could ever be curious about as you navigate this journey where onto gather the first episode dropped on September twenty eighth, be sure to hit that subscribe button on itunes, Stitcher or wherever you listen to podcasts, so you can hear all of that associates. What do you know about the after show is JJ OK after show you don't know about the after show, but it's the show that I'm gonna tell you that I got some advice from our friend, Todd Henry whose book already told you to read. That's why this was per fans. Timing don't know where to finish the song. Yeah, that's that's the sound of me wrestling wrestling rustling some papers and pulling chair out and hitting a button and hitting a pen and hitting another pen. So Todd Henry who has accidental creative podcast, who I mention here is just a great guy and he reached out to see how I was doing a book and I was like, helped me, please, please, please. And all honesty, I'm doing good with the book. I just feel like I could be doing better and I'm just having just having a hard time locking in. So he reassured me that everything I need I already have, which I think is a good reminder. He. Really encouraged me to take on a writing practice. So I'm gonna try just waking up every day and writing five hundred words before I do anything else, which seems very doable and something I've resisted because I don't. I'm above process. I'm a true creative, and that's not no one's above anything. And he just really, oh, he also encouraged me to just think about one person and just right to that person instead of writing to everyone in the world and trying to make them happy, and please every person with my words, which is what I was trying to do and what I try and do most of the time and what is a huge hurdle for me same with the podcast, it's like, I'll do it and I'm just like not everyone's going to be happy with this and then I wanna start over. The reality is some people will be happy. Some people won't be happy. That's life. I have to get good with that. Part of that means just taking over and doing what I want a, not what everyone else wants, which good luck with that people if I get there, I'll let you know. Anyways, I don't know. Just thought I'd throw on a little advice that was given to me to you, Todd, I hope you don't mind that I'm telling everyone that you're great because you are an I feel grateful to have people like you in my life, and that's it. That's what we call shout out by.

It impacts bloodpressure metabolism immune function and many other aspects of health including hormones is known as the master mineral and it's one of the few supplements. I take regularly and I found a specific way to take it. That works best for me. I'm very specific. Forms because magnesium is taken in the wrong way it can lead to digestive upset or if is taken too quickly can cause all kinds of problems so I take two supplements one called MAG S Rt. Which is a slow release form of Die Magnesium Malate? The slow release technology makes it easier on the digestive system so I don't get any of the digestive disturbance that comes with some forms of magnesium. I took this form in the morning and at lunch so to capsules with breakfast two capsules with lunch and at night I take a different product called MAG suit which is magnesium glycemic which magnesium bound with the amino acid licey to help sleep and in combination.

Back theories for improving not just life span but health span and overall health. So at that. Let's join Simon Simon. Welcome and thank you for being here so much for having me. It's a huge pleasure. I am excited for our conversation and actually WANNA jump in with a conversation Era Question. I sometimes ask in the middle or toward the end of it in their view. But I think it's going to be a great springboard for us today. Which is what are a few things that people don't know or understand about your area of expertise which also is of course a great intro to your area of expertise yes absolutely absolutely so there are a couple of things and I think these concepts really form the foundation of everything that we do at pt with regard shock Element as well as our content strategy and everything that we're trying to do with our mission so the first one is that you know some of you may know I was born in Hong Kong. Grew up there until I was in my teens. In Hong Kong was recently ranked number one in life expectancy by the UN in their last That was launched twenty sixteen so number one in the world and I think at various times as always been in the top Ted and I think that's very interesting because a lot of people study who's zones which are these famous areas of of the operations of centenarians many of them like Okinawa India are places that are where people can enjoy fresh air on sunshine fairly relaxed lifestyle on the contrary Hong Kong is very very kind of bustling financial center. Very high Capita very little space a lot of pollution interesting that we can delve into more The second thing is really with regard to T- MT Consumption Habits in the Western world of the US is actually not a a predominantly coffee drinking relation so he really requires a drinking inadequate amount and in quantity to unlock any sort of physical health benefits. And as you may know. Katie has always been linked with meditation. Mindfulness practices breath work. And this is the other side of of benefits that he brings it. It's it's kind of a metaphysical Unocal. It mental psychological spiritual under requires making consciously Ziming that we can help more until as well ironically linked to Dr Ingredients D Catechin and caffeine combination of three. And finally. This is the last thing this is kind of a deeper topic but the foundation of our mission and our system is a key really is kind of a gateway to to higher consciousness. Kind of a window to your soul universe inhabited to discuss amid more than these are three things that people don't really know a whole lot about three yards not is really what we do. I love that I think I'd love to start with DYSLEXIC VACATION. A little bit more because why think for one. There's a lot of misconceptions when it comes to detoxification and what that actually means and then ways we can support it that are evidence based and of course. I think there's a amount of evidence on both different kinds of teas and the different herbs that are used in teas four that but let's start with your approach to detoxification and what people need to understand. Yeah absolutely and I think this is directly tied to the understanding of life expectancy and health and wellness general approach to confication is really about detoxification environmental toxins and this is a topic that you're very interested to wellness mind. Wander my approach to this. Occupation is is really taking a five sensory approach. Something that I've been practicing for a long time. It's really kind of the synthesis in distillation of a lot of practices in other kind of health. Experts healers meditation experts Base doctors in an additional Also you know roughly follow right. The idea that this is something that's had for a lot of people and we can make that tangible approaching it from this five sensory approach so just on a very basic levels smell right. That's one of my senses. We're constantly surrounded by a barrage of air deodorizers. A air fresheners hanging in using readings ordeal risers their home skin care products that have a lot of fragrance cleaning products at a lot of regrets and to develop kind of greater consciousness is a two words these chemicals at another toxins. That are in the air whether it's paint fumes once it has to expose themselves to fresh air right so we can open the window sitting outdoors going into the forest the woods and entitled nature the morning. Do that the more consciously become a what your ears smells. The same thing goes for reducing. The use of armful. Wife and another one would be would be taste right. That's an obvious one. Where if you're eating fast food and and you know cheetos along you're not really going to be able to appreciate differentiate when you see you know some of our partners market. That's why things old three days old right or a week old Moore. He's officially let's frozen and bought two times Out at the ocean so really. It's about again developing level of consciousness through very accessible lakes that you can do step by step. The same goes for touch. I mean I know a lot of people that use sunblock foundation every day they go out every every day of their lives are using it. They were hundred percents. That FIBERS TOXIC. Dyes your skin right. So what if you stop using these promises chart wearing more natural fibres cotton or wool cashier? You will start developing level consciences. That is completely different. You understand really feels like your skin's actually read the you know the same things goes go for sight and sound ultimately where we wanna get to is a is a situation where you're leading life natural what we union HIV. So you're using natural products or wearing natural fibers and you're slowly kind of eliminating than boys. Pollution Environmental Toxins at work surrounded by so compare what we'd the life that we normally live with breathing fresh air and having moments of silence and closing. Your eyes. It's a it's a it's kind of the working towards. Yeah absolutely and I think like all of us actors that you mentioned. They're easy to underestimate because we may not feel the immediate impact of the fibers in our clothing or things in household cleaners or in our skin care but over time those do have such a dramatic impact. That's been an area for research for me as well and like you mentioned the reason I even started developing certain products that are especially typically contaminated I think often we don't realize that impacted till we take those things away and then notice how much better we feel that. Also of course support the body in its natural detoxification pathways in the ways that you mentioned. We've touched on this before. But you are a big proponent of breath work and this is something I've been trying to dial in my own life I feel like I've got the Diet and lifestyle stuff pretty well dialed in but Stress and sleep are still areas where I could definitely improve since I've been experimenting with different forms of breath. Works you try to optimize both those. So I'd love to hear about your breath. Work Practices and the ways that this is linked to better health. Yup Yup and elimination of noise distraction. Is this gradual path of you. Know from the extreme of ask flew to the other extreme farmers market fair. You can then also draw the same trajectory right from site so you're constantly know watch. Tv or Hemlock distraction some people you know watch TV or read but they will actually just like two people right so suppose you take that to the extreme of just looking out at age looking at a white wall or whatnot just closing your eyes. That's a step by step trajectory towards a mindfulness practice. So the same thing goes for fresh air. If you start adding fresh air any of your surroundings then you'll actually start noticing your war and the same thing goes for sounds right is like the sounds of PD or the sounds like hip. Hop Music. Rock Music. That can be offensive or old silence. Nothing wrong. This is not any sort of meditation. Practice like. This is just really getting walking the path towards higher consciousness. Right just by doing these things. You already so far along. The path of mindfulness practices breath work well ahead of a potentially anyone. That's like oh I do you know. Tm or do or do offer or you don't play my case. I do this for just a Cheeto base by the. You've already got so hard on this road that subsequently what what pursues after is simply a breathing technique right. It's all things I've just mentioned. Those different cases are different methods of controlling your breath. You so far. Immerse yourself already in mindfulness practice. The breathing technique comes easily. Doesn't a little bit about Medicinal Edwards the technique? It's it's based on traditional Chinese medicine. It's our practice. And it's based on the concept energy or key in your body right and so it's clearly physiological. Difference SPIRITUAL PRACTICE NOT MEANT FOR. Lightman is not meant for his. This is not for any sort of metaphysical goal so to speak however the physiological processes really kind of based on the concept that in your body. There's either tension which is equals blockage or there's relaxation where he calls you know blockage free free flow of energy so for those of you who have been cupping acupuncture needles. A lot of the stuff is actually meant for ages right so your energy flow freely now with you go out. Medicinal breath work use of concentrate. Your tent is very similar on our CEO. Practice you focus your intent during your you. They almost visiting body. It's called the dance which is also the sequel chocolate yoga. It's like Intra Tube below your your label. Concentrate your your intent there. Because that's meant to be the regulator or the kind of engine of your audience energy so if you focus the energy there were read this review cheeks. Route your entire body organs limbs to your brain through the Marines right through the the way the Meridians are matt through accupuncture maps and so magic. There's a series of rivers and streams and tributaries audie and these are all have been mapped out for at least two thousand years. They're very well established. How that if you flows so you're really just kick-starting if you will like a turbo charger the circulation of energy through these agents. So it's completely Watch the great thing. Is that if you practice. While than a lot of gun. Kind of metaphysical benefits issue those little things. That people meditate on a spiritual basis to achieve. Got It that makes sense and Yeah I think I love you mentioned silence because I think that's the thing is in short supply in the modern world I for moms especially just understandably with small kids but even short of just family. The normal family dynamics which often oatley silence thing many of us are just in the habit of always having on music or TV or hot gas. If many people listening to this may have on. And you're right. I think there's something beautiful in the silence and also if it's something you're not used to it could actually. There can be discomfort in that silence for a while until you learn to be silent and still with yourself. You know. Many cultures have some form of this ethic. We don't do a great job of this in the modern world a lot of times but so many cultures have some practice involving silence and stillness and being able to sit with one's own self in comfort and I think this is a perfect springboard into talking about awareness. Which is another big topic for you that you touched on briefly and something that I know is a big part of your like so. Walk us through that. And how how you cultivate this in your life absolutely so for me. Awareness and consciousness are really the same thing and really based on the concept that everything that you need is already inside meaning that you have the ability to heal yourself if you listen to your body and you have the ability reddin inside of you to realize your potential been whatever way informed that might take and the challenges that we face is really one of not being able to hear ladders and that's futile lack of awareness of consciousness in combat the noise or the ornamental toxins order. Navy WANNA give it. It's it's the thing that stands between us and our treat nature and so becoming aware about is is really something that I try to help every single one of our customers as well as every single person our team everyone that I do it in some way or for obviously the peanut we may is. That is a huge part of that chemically. The tea has has different amounts. Lcd Caffeine emails at work in combination with each other to produce a very specific state of mind of heightened awareness and alertness also calm relaxed. There's nothing like it out there so it's going back to what I said earlier. When many people drink tea they do it on the go? You know they're driving there watching T. E. There whatever listening to podcasts. Catch working in those instances you cannot actually feel not be aware of conscious of the effects. These these these biochemical compounds are having been you right now need is a very calming outed abuses affectively in the brain while Aquino's actually our annual income among leading to you know immune support greater sense of It makes you healthy. The caffeine in tea is extremely different. it's bound to the county in compounds as bound to the penoles making it harder for your body the dust breakdown. So there's a time release of the caffeine. Therefore the Energy Caffeine impact-assessed is A. It's a more bradshaw one graduating that lasts longer. Three to four hours and also doesn't have a crash where you're tired after so the combination of these sensations if you don't have to perceive with the level of consciousness and it's not hard to do that you know you can sit somewhere. Just look out your window and just feel. The same stations is hard for t- to do its job from that kind of metaphysical view right. So that's kind of our concept of awareness in something that we help everyone experience through the team through mindfulness practices. I love it. Those two are really combine. Those two and I think it will be great to go into some specifics about not talked about the consciousness in the mental side about the physical and physiological benefits of teas as well because they certainly are well documented well-studied and used throughout the world in various ways and so I love to just hit you with some kind of somewhat rapid fire questions related to different types of T- Right now I'm a big fan of the Sun Goddess Macho that you guys have. I've been trying to alternate not drink coffee every day. I do green tea most days instead and talk about that specifically. I know a lot of people are familiar with the idea of green tea being healthy but Machos kind of above and beyond and then years goes even above and beyond that so. Walk us through the benefits of this. Yes absolutely so. This is a very special problem that we made recognizing the need in the market for something that was extremely high quality and yet here right so one of the things about much is that obviously originates from Japan. That's a huge part of ceremonbial tea ceremony culture and also meditation culture in Japan. So apple's their schools of it's very traditional is what I'm trying to say. An indoor traditional approach to macho. There is not a great deal of concern for organic agricultural practices in the purity of the vodka. They're more interested. In a appearance of case I am so the appearance. Encasing kind of you know. All of the quality parameters have been established through these traditional approaches. We'll still vote. But we have come to know a ceremonial great macho highest. But like I said a lot of temples of key ceremony. They don't care. Watches the struggle that I had that nylon watching this tremendous for vacation. Mindfulness is very high in healthy. I couldn't get a cure source of it right. There's very little organic certainly agree much out there. And so we developed one Ownership with a ten degree tea masters. So they're only about thirteen in the world. The fifties half of his life together this level of certification and we and we obtained R. P. From a very special source at the southernmost Japan. It's an area called competition Next to Okinawa blue very very far away from me naturally and it's. It's extremely curious. Actually Meg right next to the first national park was designated so growing the mountains. There's there's no need for use of SSI's 'cause it's so cool you know outmuscle. There isn't a lot of pesticide drift issues. So some of you may not be familiar. But in Japan a lot of the agricultural land is very very closely plotted together to increase. And what happens? One farm uses That it will drift over all the neighboring farms. You can avoid this by having a tea sill. Course there's much lower amount of rights that scares her and then second. It's it's blended by ten key master. So it's it's a very high level Polity from all the different parameters of Hayes of the froth how the the mouth he'll of the texture and then we have what ruled toxins all of our on search tripled losses for having metals pesticides toxic mold. We've gone one step. Further with this logic. Also swing for radioactive isotopes being concerned because the marches Japan was you in Japan recovered from very well but they're still customers with concerns about it and so there's there's there's a very very high level of speed that's kind of ended up. Shell are much shaded for very long period with kind of natural kind of a Fiber Shade also. This is going a little bit into the becoming of. How much is made? Matsushita that's primarily house different than all other tease the sheeting actually in his Means the macho develop higher levels of chlorophyll as well as in you know acid leads to you know. Alpha activity in the marine something. That much is valid for both from taste one of you as well as from a health benefit. I'm so glad you brought up the testing because I get a lot of questions related to that especially the heavy metals which of course have become more of a concern in recent years. And I know that you guys like you said. You test for that. I know some people also really worry about fluoride in T- because of the ability of tea plants to absorb fluoride from the soil. Is this something you guys test. Well yes we definitely test for fluoride especially Password ended in Detroit at a lot of them. He hasn't ended saved to sequester toxins from year. One of those plants and so the source that you get it from Harem out which is why we go through such frequence find resources make sense got it so. I'd love to now talk about some of the other types of teas than and how they can be used to support the body in various ways. I know that you guys have a huge assortment. Now and I'm going to have some specific questions related to how each of those can be used but walk us through some of the other types of teas that are available especially from you guys and how those can be implemented this part of this kind of whole body approach absolutely so we have a tea drinking protocol that we recommend to people a black teas are generally recommended for the mornings. Wacky has lower concentration of Catkins Like he has a whole different settlement It's like it's color but as a result of that the caffeine from likely actually faster so those of you Energy charge warning. Like this is really a passive Furthermore the t agree supported. The this is something that when you wake up in the morning and you have eaten much or your stomach a sensitive much. More out. Suitable for. Rose convinces consumption in the afternoon. We generally recommend green tea instill with English like this grey You know a whole range of ts in the afternoons is when we generally recommend you drink green. Tea's that's kind of the after lunch hour each that might be a little bit of sluggishness. Jesse's HE'LL AMBREEN TEENS JENIN. We've been or Adjusted processes facilitating metabolic system and also providing with that energy. That will last through the afternoon and then at night we have a range of different herbal. Teas Roy this this gifts. We have a ginger tea. We also have a mushroom T ray. She always fantastic in the evening. Because it provides with different types of Phenol so we believe in drinking the rainbows. The Rain in the evening you can have access to any of these are alcohols and also help relax you prepare you for for night of. Arres am huge fan of racy at night for sleep and I definitely see a difference in my sleep when consume ratio. I love that point about drinking the rainbow. Not just eating the rainbow. And it's such a great solution when I hear from people who don't say they don't like plain water and so I think tea is a great like pretty much non-caloric way to change at the taste of water and and get a whole lot of benefits without it. Being a lot of the other products that are geared towards people who don't like the taste of water that have a lot of ingredients most has tried to avoid Did he has a great solution. They're a question. I'm getting a lot with the increase in popularity of various types of fast whether it be intermittent fasting water. Fasting etc is. How tea can fit into a fasting protocol and if consuming tea without anything added to it breaks faster nut. Yes absolutely so this is fasting is is an area of tremendous. Krizan kind of focus for us about three health pillars along with dot health conscious. We've developed the centerpiece with Dr Jason Bull. Who is a nephrologist kind of one of the leading? Experts on intermittent fasting. He's actually a. Clinical doctors helped thousands of people off the benefits of fasting. Really amazing work his Dong consistently recommended team for years years now to his patients as quickly for their because it ends to help manage hunger pangs provides Taibbi provide a sense of Well as or the different a fasting goals fasting had benefits. That people are interested whether it breaks faster. Not It's interesting mush. It technically missions. Tell us well they do break a fast by definition because you know even on a very kind of you know trace level there could be an. I'm talking like maybe below single digits of calories rights technically speaking. Yes any sort of caloric intake will break fast but the thing is is that. It's such a small quantity. The impact of the calories and the benefits are so overwhelming we kind of miniscule outside which is really a technical one that generally speaking. Nan Net up. You are far better off using T- for us and there are different ways of abusing not drink during your feasting when no and your rights for people and if it's a lot of people think oh you know ostrich at actually not case even if you're eating during your drinking tea will so reap benefits. Oh the or the metabolic support and so forth thermo. Genesis talks about a lot of course at the same time. You can drink it in your fasting window. Nasa people actually are sensitive to the compounds. Tv Tannin's kept me not take well to a drinking it and I think that this is probably in the small lane orgy of users. We have a whole range of different teas herbal herbal. Rt are hundreds faulty for these different kinds of usages? Right so we have a black T. Lennon with Bergamo which we recommend for the for the mornings. We have a green tea that is with much tasks that the acute We haven't herbal tea for kind of all of the windows between really enjoyed the process because it provides with that with the hiding also the freedom them of choice when you're doing a fast one of the most dreadful things for people that gives them the most exciting and drink water. It's it's something that's burning Donte but when you have a number of different you know different. Flavor an official hydrolyzed hydrating choose those very far breaking up US Hickory. It does make a tremendous difference. I've noticed that myself and I've experimented with both I test pretty regularly especially from on longer water fast. Things key tones and glucose and then even more traditional labs just to monitor all that and I do definitely notice a difference with things like t- to in the monotony alone.

Health my source for magnesium. You probably know if you read my blog that magnesium is responsible for over three hundred biochemical reactions in the body it impacts blood pressure metabolism immune function and many other aspects of health gooding hormones. It's known as the master mineral and it's one of the few supplements I take regularly and I have found a specific way to take that works best for me. I'm very specific. Forms because magnesium is taken in the wrong way can lead to digestive upset or if is taken too quickly. It can cause all kinds of problems so I take two supplements one called MAG S Rt. Which is a slow release form of Die Magnesium Malate? The slow release technology makes it easier on the digestive system so I don't get any of the digestive disturbance that comes with some forms of magnesium took this form in the morning and at lunch so to capsules with breakfast two capsules with lunch and at night I take a different product called Maqsoud which is Magnesium glycemic which the bound with the amino acid lysine to help sleep and in combination.

Listening many of them are parents and many moms of course and I get a lot of questions related to tea. And if it's safe to consume during periods of pregnancy and breastfeeding. So there there are many different approaches to this. And I can't say that one is is is you know. Certainly I think that you know in this case. It's certainly a is critical. Salta a health expert or doctor on so that they can get specific health advice to to the situation of of the individual is. That's a hard one certainly met people who plenty of people who don't during pregnancy. I think yeah. That's always sage advice. Frame with a medical condition or specially anyone growing new human is definitely talk to your doctor and see I can say from experience. My doctor told me that like caffeine to a certain level was okay so I did green tea during several my pregnancies and certain herbal teas but definitely echo your advice on. Talk to your doctor and make sure. There's no other concerns that you aren't aware of for your specific instance And I looked switch gears a little bit and talk about an idea of That I know that you've talked about this in Britain about this a little bit but not just lifespan but health span because we started this episode talking about areas where people live longer and in the health community. There's been more and more buys about not just increasing how long we live but increasing how long we live in a healthy way and for people like you. I'm assuming those actually are one and the same but I love to go deeper just specifically on the idea of health span and other factors that you think can come into play to increase our how long we're living in a healthy way. Yes absolutely you know. My grandfather actually turns a hundred fine. You'll turn one hundred six this December. So he's really kind of you know example of Hung Javadi into kind of get a very healthy. Of course he. He plays Bridget mah-jongg every day. Still for about six hours. But he's always been rates apple to me of the of the meaning of living long living healthily I. This is very much to what I mentioned. The beginning of a copying the rights amongst highest it countries or places with life for pro life expectancy. And you know for for not wanting to sound like a broken record here but really really goes back to the to the concept of conscious awareness. So it's only my grandfather wasteful. He said something. Very wise kind of Austrian frontal Amir. I always regard my health as like a bank. You never want to draw two zero. You certainly number one brought to negative and every every kind of dollar being penny that you put in there is going to increase your overall health you overall longevity and you're in this constant effort to increase the outs right and not feed it so you always WanNa key building it up and make it higher and I think that philosophically is very different than how a lot of people in this day and age understand. Hell I mean just looking at what's going on today with the corona virus there. There's so many people around me that are in my age group or my organization friends that have this idea that coral bars is not gonNA kill. It's going to be bad for AIDS recovery take time but that's really in opposition to the concept of living well for a long period right if you just WanNa live well then. Certainly by all means one should live life to the fullest right. The whole go. Low in two hundred eight cannot be restrained by self quarantine or limiting travel or not going to conferences. Or you know washing hands and all that stuff. Nobody wants to do that. advice traveling right now. It's cheap is. It could possibly be so. We're not traveling the world right but the idea with the eastern approach to to health early one but my grandfather after does that all of these things go to taking away the health credits that you have. It's time you get a flu every time you have a procedure every time you know. You're you've taken something or other Four for some some issue that you had there is something that's taken away from your overall Kinda Bank Account. Wellness credits right. And so I think this is really kind of key Something that's always in practice on Kong indicates for Taiwan area in the eastern a culture. Is this concept of constant bouncing right so this is renowned saying even when you don't feel like there's something wrong with a sickly that the principle of prevention so how prevention is basically about accumulated east health credits and avoiding sickness coining appealing of systems in void the simpsons than things on and so on. And so. It's really about kind of the renouncing. You can do that by having a higher level of consciousness and awareness to how your body feels you wake up exhausted than something is not right right abuse poorly for a couple of days in a row. You've been affected. Something is not right. We give feeling some sort of you know this. Can your body not attention to that right well can do to to address. Galway knots idea. Yeah I love that. I think that's really important perspective especially at times like this when things are as they currently are and yeah I think I think that's a perfect place to actually springboard into another question that I left which relates to mindset and learning lifelong health. Which is if there's a book or a number of books that have really dramatically impacted your life and if so what they are and why yes absolutely. This is a tough question. Katie because a lot of favorite books might my favorite book change from time to time but I guess the books that I tend to go back to the most are ones that are lasalle in nature or kind of spiritual nature and the one that I tend to constantly carrying with me. Retirement timing invisible discovered was in my house my mid teens and the doubted achieve. So it's a tax on the Nubia heard of basically the concept was was created in this boat of yet in the entire China's medicine off of Chino. Practice of all of this different energy work and using Arts Humadi from mid eastern perspectives is based on this book so rich and philosophical wisdom as well as very practical wellness health base is a coal so the practices in fact kind. She is based on this book. The Art of war is baseless book. I would say that you know the the better half of Chinese civilizations based on that's fascinating and a new recommendation. I'll make sure we link that in the show notes that Wellness Dot FM. So you guys can grab it. If you'd like Simon any parting advice. You'd like to leave in the ears of our listeners today. Yummy really just the concept that everything you need already inside the incoming consciousnesses owning starting with the easiest. I saw the five senses that were constantly using the day. I'll is a great way to start examining what what are some of the toxins. What are some of the noise that you can rule from your from Your Life and love it?

The Cake Show: Happy Mother's Day, Pat Micheletti, Mike Trudell

"A Fan. Number One. Doc. ally. Off. Welcome into the Brian Heating Cooling Studios. It is the cake show. We are until one o'clock this afternoon, guards and part-time. Gal Bryanne Patrick Lead. He's GonNa make his weekly appearance at eleven thirty, and might trudell and I are going to talk about what it was like being teenagers. During the a Michael Jordan era he used to work for the Minnesota Timberwolves he's from Orono went to north northwestern works for the wolves. That's where I met. Him Got Hired I. Don't know now ten twelve years ago. To go out and work for the Lakers and Lakers dot com, and now he does all kinds of stuff out in L. A., we've had him on over the years bumper to bumper to talk World Cup. Kobe Bryant Laker. Stuff and today. We're GONNA. Talk About Mike because he and I are about the same age, and we grew up in the same era, idolizing Michael Jordan and having him come into basketball, so we're GONNA talk about Kobe comparisons as well with one of my favorite guys Mike Trudell to wrap up the show now I've asked the last couple of weeks. I've asked a lot of the audience I've asked over the last couple of months. Maybe what are you missing because of the pandemic? What can't you wait to do because of the pandemic? Who are you missing because of the pandemic? All of those things have been in the hopper here since we all started sheltering in place so to speak and today is mother's Day. Hopefully. It's not a surprise to anybody out. There hopefully knew that. But honestly the days run together in a pandemic, so I wouldn't necessarily be that critical of Mother's Day snuck up on you, but I do want some early input to the Bradshaw Brian Inbox boot that cafe dot com, as well as my twitter handle at J. G. Kfi, and because I want to know about the MOMS in your life i WanNa make this. This kind of throughout the show, a theme, a Mother's Day theme, Mother's Day tribute show so to speak I want to leave them in as we go from you. I'M GONNA. Give you some thoughts here in a second, but I want to hear about your wife or your mom or your grandma, or maybe somebody outside the family special mom that you know. Maybe a first time, mom and celebrating their first mother's Day today, because that's special for everybody boot cafe and. Dot Com at J. G. Kfi am tributes throughout the show today as it pertains to mother's Day because from where I sit. Being a mom. Has To be the least rewarding job in the entire world. You don't know that when you're a kid, you find that out when you're a parent. And what's always been amazing to me is most MOMS can't get enough of it, even though it is the least rewarding job in the entire world. Something about being a mom draws them in if you go all the way back to the beginning. The stress of starting a family, the note taking the supplement taking all the science that goes in to having a kid. It's stressful. Takes a lot of work. And from the second you get pregnant from what I remember about my wife's three pregnancies. It's all worried from there, and it never really stops the biggest reason. I don't WanNa have a fourth child. Is because I don't want my wife to worry again for another nine months. The pregnancies worse when they actually come out, and that's from a dad. I can't even imagine what it's like being a mom waiting for the heartbeat at the first ultrasound counting kicks throughout the nine months carrying the baby around for nine months watching what you eat feeling gross having to buy new clothes new pillows. Then there's the birth can't even talk about. That won't even pretend to talk about that. Then the baby comes out and it's great for ten minutes. Then it's crying then. It's diapers than it's up all night. There's no sleep then they start growing up way to fast. You can't even enjoy each phase even though everybody in your life. When they found out, you were going to have a baby. Say Goes so fast got to enjoy it. Take in every single phase because you're going to snap your fingers and they're going to be fifty and you're gonNA wonder where all the time, but you can't even enjoy that because it does go so fast. Luckily we can take a picture of everything now so that you can at least remember it in the somewhat quiet moments down the road, and then they get even older. Start talking back to you. They start making messes for no good reason. They start throwing things all over the house. They won't pick up. They probably still don't sleep. You might have more kids for whatever the reason. That just adds to the trouble and speaking for husbands everywhere worthless. We do not help. We don't even know how to help and I was reminded last week on Jerry Seinfeld most recent netflix special that it might not be our fault, but we just don't know how to help. A lot of wives complain that their husbands do not listen. I have never heard my wife say this she may have. But. Here's what I do know. Ladies. Your husband wants to make you happy. He's working on. He's thinking about it every second. He cannot do it. CanNot do. He does not know how to do it. Sometimes, we do it. We don't know how we did it. We can't ask what did I do? That looks like you don't know what you're doing. Can't do nothing. Woman says I can't believe you're doing this. Man Says doing what. Woman starts crying. Says I didn't do anything. Women says exactly. So that's what you're working with. In the chaos that motherhood I. Thought Seinfeld summed it up beautifully I, and he's one hundred percent right. You're not working with a whole lot. When it comes to the husband, help and husbands have never been more involved. Dad's have never been more progressive. We've never been more involved, but we see the stories all over the place now because we're in quarantine that even though dads try, we're still not pulling our weight. We're still not helping out as much as we could be. We really want to. Jerry says we just have no idea how to do it back to the kids. Then they become teenagers. They tell you that they hate you. You're ruining their life. They want to run away. They stay out later than you want them to drive faster than you want them to. You're always worried about who they're with what they're doing. Then they move away. Don't call enough. Don't come over enough in my opinion, the reward for being a mom. Doesn't come until like twenty five thirty thirty five years later. When you get grandkids. If you're lucky enough to get grandkids, and then you get the fun stuff. Without the responsibility, you can give them back. You can sit back and watch the thirty year payback now. Your kids are getting on their behalf your grandkids. Pay You back in a way. The reward for being a mom is the ultimate long play. But all the moms out there sign up for this and thank God that they do. because. Where would we BE WITHOUT OUR MOMS? The ones who think we're the greatest. Even, though we know that we're not and we'll actually with you that you are greater than you actually think speaking from my mom in particular. She thinks we're the greatest three kids in the history of the world. We all look at each other like mom's nuts. She's insane now. It wasn't our teachers fault that time. It wasn't our coach's fault that time it wasn't. Our teammates. Fault that time on. It was our fault. The ones that we cry when we're young and we're old. The ones we go to when we have a problem with were five or thirty five. They sacrificed their own lives. Dreams certainly bodies and goals to make sure we get what we need. The CEO of the House. The ultimate Uber driver, the world, renowned chef, the most creative artists, the financial planner, the director of House operations. Whether, they work outside the home or work inside the home, the glue and the matriarchs now more so than ever. As we're stuck at home all day long and the kids. Are there all day long? So this is a cake show. Thank you to all the moms out there. My Mom, Peggy, my mother-in-law, Roxy, my sister Jamie, my sister-in-law, Carleen holly and my wife Jenny. WHO GETS NEXT TO NOTHING FOR ME? But has been our kids teacher kids therapists our kids coach. Really our kids everything else when our kids get hurt. They look for Mommy. Even if they know that Miami's not there, they still don't believe daddy when I say Mommy's not here, you're going to have to deal with Daddy. They will run around the house looking for Mommy if they get hurt or if they need something. And we have endless corentin crafts because of. My Wife, she makes multiple lunches and dinners every single day because the kids have opinions on what they like what they don't like, and that changes any given moment and that changes really after they've said what they want for lunch, they may change it ten minutes later and she doesn't I wouldn't do it, but my wife doesn't, and I'm guessing a lot of other moms out there as well tricks him into drinking their milk, eating their vegetables. All of those things. That's what my wife does. I'm sure that's what my mom did. As well so we start to show honoring all the moms and want to continue the tributes throughout the day your mom.

Brian boot that KFI AM DOT com. G. Shout out to my wife, who is the mother of three has been the bedrock for our family, as my daughter has gone through three organ transplants, including two in the past ten months deedee. You Rock, Love T K very similar on my twitter. HANDLE HERE J.! G. Cayenne, Kyle says my mother is the reason. Every other person in the world is a letdown. She slept in cots in the hospital every. Every time I had an open heart surgery, so I didn't have to be alone. She bought me a guitar paid for me to travel an hour and a half away twice a week to get lessons in meet other young musicians when I couldn't play sports with all my friends from my small hometown, nobody will ever live up to my mother so nice tributes there to start to show. We'll continue them. As we go along, I wanted to talk Kobe nineteen testing really quickly because I saw this headline over the weekend. And, I'm I got a little confused by it, and I think I might have some clarification but I. I might need some as we go as well. We all know that it was about a month ago. When our Guy Dr Bill Maurice and others were at the Capitol I assumed to unveil the Male Clinic University of Minnesota, collaboration with the state of Minnesota that we were going to be able to. To test at some point, twenty thousand people a day for Covid nineteen, and that was a scene is a big day of seen as the moonshot program it was met with a lot of enthusiasm of people were excited about it because we've heard all along that we need more testing. We need as much testing as possible. We're GONNA learn so much more from all these tests and what's interesting is. Both, papers wrote about this this weekend. That for whatever the reason the testing capabilities are there and people aren't going to get tested in fact wall, said Governor Wall with a call. Reports on Friday that the number of completed tests in recent days doesn't reflect even half of the state's current capacity, which he described as over ten thousand a day, so we're about halfway to original goal, it would appear, but people aren't going in for whatever the reason and Jan Malcolm. The state health commissioner says providers are telling US people aren't coming in either. Because they hadn't gotten the message previously, the testing wasn't available for for whatever reason people aren't availing themselves of the testing capacity. That's there we need to do better and I. Read this entire Star Tribune story. And there was one question that I had that wasn't answered in it. And it was. How do you get a test for covid nineteen? Do you know Brienne well? which part the actual? How do you get it? Who Do you call? We're GONNA. Go, what do you do? Like This may be stupid and I found the answer. I think a little bit later in a pioneer press story, but in all the briefings. I I don't think we've ever really talked about. It and Dan even talked about last week as it pertained to surgeries and stuff. Like what do you do if you need to have some kind of surgery or whatever my assumption would be just talking to the doctors that I know that you call your general practitioner. And do video session or whatever it is, or maybe they can meet you in the office I. Don't know, and then they make the determination I. Do you need to go to the ER? Do you need to go to a surgery center? Do you need to do all those things but one of the? Problems, it seems like from these stories is that people don't know where to go or how to do it and as much as many of us have regular doctors, and you try to do your yearly physical. We certainly know there's a gap for many that they don't get physical yearly, or they don't check in with their doctor all the time. Especially, the younger and younger you get as an adult and so I think the problem was. No one knew where to go and. WHOSE THIS PERSON SHOCKER! Is this person's name? Any figure out WHO SHOCKER is? Because they had some interesting things to say about. How people can get the message or why? People aren't getting the message, Tim Shekar Vice Dean for the research at the University of Minnesota Medical School. It's all about the message. It's all about getting the word out and other factors that testing capacity varies at healthcare centers around the State Daniel Hopkin Assistant Commissioner at the Health Department about a week ago, the state created testing command center that works like an air traffic control to move samples to the people. People who have lagged capacity health department also is informing doctors about a new availability of testing since some patients with symptoms will contact irregular regular physicians, testing centers listed on the state's website are an alternative offset similar to the way, people can obtain vaccinations at pharmacies or clinic. He says we know some people have tried to get tested in the past returned away so we want people to know that we have the capacity now so to get to. The. Star Tribune Story. There wasn't a ton of information there. Pioneer Press says. Look for the symptoms. The fever cough shortness of breath. The chills repeated shaking Mitchell's the muscle pain, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, and they flat out. Say Call Your doctor or visit the states. If you're sick web page, and that's M. N. Dot, Gov, and that that includes links to a self screening tool and a map of testing locations. They say even then don't just drive up to a test site. Call your doctor or a local clinic to arrange a test, so that's the reason I. Bring it up today this morning because we've gone through like I. I think there's been this disconnect, and there are some places I. we've gotten emails from people saying well, why call my provider and they say they don't have tests, or there's like secret sneaky testing areas. It's not really advertised, but if you need to go get a test at an care something he can do that, but it seems like the best thing to do that. If you are thinking about getting tested, or if you feel like you need to get tested, is go to that website. M, dot Gov Slash covid nineteen I would start there. There's a million other. Things on that link but I would start there and mill around a little bit, and I'm hoping that they make it easy, because it seems like for whatever the reason our capacity has been uplifted, which was the goal of this whole thing when we all started staying at home two months ago, the entire goal was to make sure that we had to testing capabilities that we had all the personal protective. Protective equipment all the stuff that we needed so that when the numbers jumped up and their continue continuing to go up, especially, if the long term testing or long-term care places we would all have a place to go, and they would be able to handle the capacity. It sounds like they've got a lot of capacity right now is just they? Don't people don't know that they have that capacity and. And I think telling people don't be shy about it. Her a couple of callers at the end towards Dan show talking about different health things that are kind of going by the wayside. Some ers are slower than others Some people might not be coming in for certain things I would say if you feel like you're on the fence about this. covid nineteen given that we are about to. To See some things. Open back up in the next couple of weeks and people are moving around a little bit more freely when it comes to getting the essential services, and also when the weather's Nice Lot, more people are outside especially on the weekends. I think it would behoove all of us. feel like you do need to get tested to figure out a way to do it and while earlier. Earlier in March, it seems like it was all about testing the first responders and the people that are on the front lines. All of that made sense now it seems like at least what they're telling us last few days that the capacity is there for the rest of us so to speak, so if you're confused about it or you have questions about it or you want to get a test get to that website from the the one that I realize from the pioneer press the dot gov slash covid nineteen and get all the information there because from what I'm reading. Sounds like more testing is available than is currently being used, and the whole point of all of this was to get our capacities in all of this so that we could tests. More people get more people healthy and. And hopefully reopened some things as we go mike. TRUDELL IS GONNA. Join about an hour from now we've got more mother tributes to get to both via twitter and the Bradshaw Brian Inbox boot cafe dot com, but when we come back, it's our weekly visit with the House Band Pat Micheletti. We learned last week. Speaking of Master Chefs Michelet. He's becoming one sauce apparently is his specialty. We'll ask them. Them what he's cooking up today for Mother's Day. We'll ask him to share some stories about his mom and we'll ask him to give opinions on all kinds of things including the NHL news from the past week. The NBA news from the last week the gopher round up news from the last week. All of those things, but the house band pat make the lady when we come back the fan. Son. Opponents. He was a mid West. So. With Some great mom tributes coming into the Bradshaw Brian inbox booth at Cafe Dot Com as well as my twitter handle at J. G. Kfi. AM welcome back to the cake. Show guards the Umbrian here until one o'clock Pat. Micheletti is on the White and clinically cataract. Span before we bring pat in, want to read a couple of emails quickly J G. my mom helped me through a horrible belt of alcoholism and drug use after returning home from the Iraq war I refuse to get help for years. My wife left me. Lifelong friends gave up on me, but my mother was there. I finally got some help. Because of her wouldn't if not I dead and Gone God bless her and all the mother mothers. They're the only ones that truly. Give up that people are hitting on exactly what I wanted to hit on earlier today I got an email early because people felt that rant was At, least one person felt like my rant was anti parenthood propaganda. was like. It's about setting up the the tribute all right. It's about getting to the heartfelt stuff. Yes, was I little salty about the lack of rewards that a mother may receive early on realistic. I'd say I'd say yeah. Somebody said you're painting a picture of Motherhood I. Try to keep it real all right because there's going to be a lot of tweets today that you know the my. My kids are my heart outside of my body and Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. All of that's true, but let's not gloss over the other stuff and he can't appreciate the thoughtful stuff. If you don't have a little bit of the pains, but We'll see what Pat Micheletti. Thanks. How are you sir good? How are you? I'm doing well Tell me about your mom. Oh Boy How she did it is, she started having kids at. Twenty nine years of age Okay Yup, and she subsequently had nine nine of us and quit when she had me forty six years old. So she was An extremely busy mother but the biggest sports fanatic. I've ever come across in my life. we used to back. When I was boy we used to. You know to almost waste each other to the front door to get the sports page break, and because he wanted to read it first, but you know there's so many stories about my brother I. It's You know having nine kids in three bedroom house and. Getting early to make the first set of lunches, get those kids out the door to high school, and then the second set of lenses to make for the kids that were still in elementary school, and then breakfast and everybody every day I. was she was one of a kind I? Tell you that much nine kids nine. That's on. That's crazy. Yeah, in a three bedroom house. Okay, and it was I mean it was a free. Now. And of course I did I ever get anything you know. How course on my brother's insistence I was spoiled, but. I got old. Their states old pet. You know everything everything was was some brothers that used it before me and. That's the way it was. Back then well, that is, it is funny as you know. We always jokes that my younger sister. She basically had no rules you know. and. And and part of the reason it probably got stricter as it went for. They either loosened up is because I broke all the rules growing up as the oldest, and so that my parents I think basically just gave up number one. My sisters were much more well behaved than I generally, but I also think warm down so much you know for the first whatever fifteen twenty years of their parenthood that they give up by end of it, but it is true you get the further you go. You get fewer rules, but you do get fewer new stuff. There's a trade off to being the youngest I suppose. Yeah Of course. You know I just think back as senator you know. Who did that. You Know My dad on. Wasn't a big sports I mean you work seven days a week blah blah blah, but he would bring my mother to every game of all of my brothers and me and you know was just GonNa. You know cell phone with my mom to watch the games and and my mom's you know to. Sidney stands. And and just watch would watch. CNN She would be would. She went to sit there and watch the kids and it's all. About and. It was great. It was it was It was it was I was sure lucky to have other like. Do agree with my assessment that the The motherhood. While being rewarding at times while it's going on, it doesn't really get rewarding. I think parenting in general. The reward I think is like the grandkids later on or when your kids become adults, because there's not a lot of rewards along the way there's you know every week you know there might be something nice, but it's the ultimate long play I think parenthood that your kids grow up to be adults, and then they get grandkids, or whatever and you get to give them back. Pat And you get to do all the fun stuff with them. I. MEAN I. Think. All the aggravation. Oh I don't like this. I want that I was just. you know that's not real joyful. I'm. And Yeah, I granted along. They rarely. Back and join the kids that Micheletti is a weekly guest on the show has been for an awfully long time. Hopefully in usual times we're talking about playoff hockey, or at least some things that are usual, obviously the last couple of months. We haven't been able to do that I. WanNa get your thoughts on some things last week as it pertains to the Gopher Athletic Department and really every every athletic department is going to be in a crunch here for the next handful of years. Because even this year, the gophers are scheduled as Mark Coyle told the board of regents this past week to probably lose about four million dollars and next year. It's probably going to be a lot worse. Worse I mean. They caught a break so to speak that the fiscal year was basically over, and they just had a handful of other things coming down the pipe here. But how do you think college sports is GonNa? Look moving forward here. Given that a lot of schools have already announced pay cuts for next year mark. coyle said that he's told a lot of senior staff and other people that pay cuts will happen again next year, and as a guy who loves the entire college sports, experience, revenue and non revenue, a lot of these non revenues I think are in serious danger, not here at the U, but nationwide. How do you think all of this is GonNa look moving forward? Well I tell you what I was reading. Staff. About the the the the revenue generated the number of teams on. That it's school has and you know Minnesota. There's A. A fantastic job I, think eight total revenue, and then source overall. Several like that that I read your. Acne and it would be. It'd be hard because you know what I don't care what sport you play. It's your sport and Yeah, you know some of these non revenues. They you know I. It's. It's hard to track and field. They don't. They don't bring a lot of revenue. You know where. Whatever. I! Don't WANNA game. All the sports yeah, not revenue who did it, but but but they all you know what they all work just as hard as a football player on hockey player basketball player I think. Sodas done a terrific job and keeping these afloat so many years we almost. The the golf team not long ago right and then a couple of other sports, and and they were saying that, so you know ultimately I think they'll find a way You know. What do we know what's going to happen next weekend and? The following weeks you know hopefully we get a handle on this thing and it safe for everybody to do what we were doing but it. It it's A. It's a reality that something like this happen and you know I think. Maybe we can. All you know as as as athletes on on other teams cut back a little bit. You know hopefully SASON. These these sports that we may lose. It important you're on the right track. They have the eighth biggest budget in the big ten, and they have the fourth most sports and the big ten more so than any conference does a really good job of what they call the broad-based athletic programs, which in English means a lot of sports you know. The. Schools and other conferences they might have fourteen fifteen sixteen sports, whereas the Gophers have twenty, four, twenty, five in the big ten. Most of the teams are over twenty. If I remember correctly and what's going to be interesting to me as I watched the mark, coyle, Zoom Presser on Friday and have done some reading about it is obviously the number one you know spender at all. These schools is football. There's always, but they're also the number one revenue producer that supports else at the end you know coil. Is You know he can talk a lot without saying anything you know he can. He does a good job of not really answering a lot of different questions. He's direct everyone, but he was most direct when he said I'll tell you one thing. We are not slowing down with football and he was very direct when he said that and. And so I'm really curious to see what that does mean because football has spent a lot of money the last few years. Because you hire PJ, you pay PJ. The coaches are making a lot of money now. Assistant coaches to the travel, all of those things, and but you look at it. I'm guessing. Football had its most successful year in terms of finances that they've had in a long time, so it's like that's going to be. In one one phase pad the easiest place to cut because they spent so much. But how much do you cut at the risk of weakening that program, which is going to pay for everybody else that to me is the the the interesting part of the football conundrum? It's still conundrum because with the football program that is. That's. University athletically and. Anybody who disputes? That is kidding themselves it does you know? In in and the the money. Spent well. Look look what's happened, you know. What peaches like a done Twitter. Put this team at You know to make it a top ten top fifteen twenty team. You know wherever they are Joel recruiting their number what for in the country now? Things are happening and when that happens, more people are going to be involved and guess what that's going to be more money and guess what that will save. And Salt You know you gotTA. keeps feeding that You know that program and hopefully it'll it'll. Help. Save others that Mileti joining on the whiting clinically in cataract hotline. This person emailed in I. Think the last couple of weeks. Pat Missed it last week, but they forwarded it, and he says you know it's kind of Old News, but it is hockey news in a way that Virginia Gilbert is consolidating with effortless schools said I'd be interested to hear pat talk on that given your background. What are your thoughts on on that consolidation? Where it's? It's sad, really just you know a decline in population up on the Ern Ranger and listen you know. Hitting is now combined with Chisholm for athletics, and if it's sitting Chisholm and you know that Houston. even. is a town of sales, people or lasts maybe less now obviously less, but you know they used to be have a really good hockey program, and and now they're combined, and and you know giving this classy and. and. All sports now you know like it. Just you know when you don't have the numbers. That's what happens in and you know it it it's. because. The, the the hockey arenas up on the air range all our What's the word various historic? Very they have their own character, and in each is different, and at each difficult place to play in I mean when when I was playing, and then when my brothers were playing those buildings, perhaps right all the time and it was. It was really hard and so I I I hate to see that happen I guess it's a reality that we live in now. Yeah, it's different. Everywhere I mean we've seen. In my sister-in-law, she played for a consolidation of about schools. You know the girls hockey ten years ago because the you want to keep the programs going, but it does hit you a little bit different than it is when you think about what it represents on the range, right and the life. You just described part of the reason. Is your mom stopped having kids? I mean you're you're keeping the enrollment up there. Have happened thirty years ago. If not for Mrs Micheletti without a doubt I. The head coach of international false 'cause that the majority. Of My family members born in the falls and they they moved to shipping when my brother time I was in eighth grade or ninth grade connects, and he said you know. When the Michelet? He's left the flaws that was. You know, does he? The pipeline kids coming out there. You but yeah it it. It's really sad because you know you've got a lot of you know a lot of personal prides. The the Kids Virginia who played and the kitchen that they think of it is you know? Playing in the hippodrome or Virginia playing in miners memorial arena, and there's a lot of pride and you know, but you know that's. As part of our COVID, programming the last month or so pat, we've had the legends with Looney Series Tuesdays at five fifteen, and if people haven't checked in on it I suggest that they do. We had Scotty Bowman a little while ago. we had Harry Sinden on the couple of weeks ago and this past week we had Glenn. Say they're on. You know longtime oilers coach. Longtime Executive he in Louisville really close they both a part of the interview. They both compared. They both took cheap shots at each other about all the different properties. They own all around the world. That's what the guys do I think Harry was talking to us from Palm Springs. At a place out there, but what was interesting to me and we've talked about Wayne. Gretzky over the years, but the fact that the story about trading Wayne basically selling Wayne from Edmonton to the Kings, because the owner really needed money, the owner was in. A tough spot and I just think about now like how much things have changed really in a generation or so. We're talking about late eighties early nineties. There that now you look at the value of all these franchises, and they're all on pretty solid ground. Even the ones that maybe aren't run that well. They all make money. They're all right around where they need to be no need to sell. Sell a player I guess is the bottom line because their other businesses are failing. But what do you remember about that time when Wayne Gretzky with all the success in Edmonton is moved onto the kings. What do you remember about that whole time period? I'm going to bring it back when Wayne for I went to the Edmonton oilers and he was traded by the Indianapolis Racers Right the W.. W. H. A. Okay. Well, who's on the Edmonton oilers? My brother Joe at the time, and Glenn say there was the coach and general manager and Wayne was seventeen years old. Right so I I got to meet meet Wayne. When in Nineteen, seventy, nine at the Apple Cup finals in Winnipeg, and in fact, you know, don't in that team. Had you remember cowboy bill flat and play for the? The Philadelphia Flyers Bill Goldsworthy They had a very veteran team, and and you know here's Wayne. Right I need them after the game you know going down and see my brother and Blah Blah Blah, and what is Wayne you know? He I'm going back up to write room that you wanna come up and just hang for a while. You know 'cause. All the guys were going out. Then you know. They hit the bars after the game. Play Offs Plants Right. So yeah I was in. Grade say savior. At one point. My brother-in-law tying to renegotiate. His contract was up and and some crazy things that I remember he'll telling me before where the Games I think they're playing Birmingham both. Jokes stick before the do and. If you have you got a couple of tonight's Blah Blah Blah. You know something like that I. Don't know. But I'll do this masters you know. Negotiations are not going well and. Eventually. Ended up as free agent fables goose but. It was a very difficult back. Then what what's amazing is Glenn told people you know in Indianapolis. There were those that when he was back playing for Indianapolis. There were people that thought you know what he's probably too small. Even though you really young right, I mean like you mentioned. He's a teenager and to bring it even kind of current day. What we're being reminded of. With Michael Jordan that he was picked third, and there were legitimate reasons why he was picked third that year, and it's not like being pick. Third is a slap in the face I mean it's a top five pick obviously, but with the value. Of Hindsight it's incredible to think about what those guys became given wasn't necessarily like they were good obviously, and were highly thought of, but to become maybe the greatest ever in their respective sports. The it's not like with Lebron where everybody knew it from the first time we watched. Watched him when he was fourteen. Right that there were serious in not concerns, but just he's good. They're obviously very good players, but to project that kind of greatness, and maybe it speaks to the Times as well that there wasn't all the hype and it was, the world wasn't as connected so to speak as it is now with the digital and social media, but that that people legitimate people could watch Wayne Gretzky at seventeen and go. Yeah, I'm not sure you know that's what to me was amazing about the story. It really years because. He was. Standing bones and you know what, but but but the good ones are the good scouts that good i. See something that the average fan. And project out. you know I think. We see that we saw that with Michael. Sat with Gretzky. You know. Some of the other greats, and they just have that in eight ability to always be at at the highest level and. The motivation. Back to Jordan second You know I finally caught up on the last dance, but. How can hold abated himself? was was I'm like you know many athletes? In their time right? I mean he just ban. Ivory Coast issues best. Best Defensive Player in the League wow. I guess I have to show him tonight. And and company CUCO. you know him and in those guys. Jerry. Krause is this guy's going to be the best ball heaven and you know they. Hold up the four points and at Olympic abused them, but but it was it was it was It was motivation like that that that he will Jordan and you know. What I loved about the last week of what I thought was so funny. The obviously the the motivation piece is legendary, right and we. We saw that firsthand here a couple of times with. Derek Martin or JR rider or Kevin Garnett when when Kevin. Garnett was a rookie. He told the story about you know Jr rider was having a good game against Michael and Garnett started talking and was like Hey Mike. Don't worry about him. He's a kid. He doesn't get it and the next thing they know. Michael scored like seventeen straight points in the game's over, and Cagey says I learned my lesson right there. Though it was amazing to me, was the ninety two finals. Pat when they play the blazers and what Clyde Drexler it was. It was seen as out. Here's Clyde out west. You know from. They're all the same era, right? You know the eighty three five slamma, Jamma everything they are, and you know it's not like. Clyde Drexler was even like a Dan Marley or Toni Kukoc. A guy who had a good career but Clyde Drexler was one of the in the off the top fifty players of all time climbs on that team, and had a great career and Jordan took offence to them even. Even being in the same breath, which at the time wasn't crazy again? In hindsight, you know that it is, but at the time that was would just laughed out loud when he said that because I'm thinking Clyde, Drexler was a hell of a player. They basically had the same stats that year and Jordan just killed him in the finals because he was so annoyed that people deigned to say hey, this is a good matchup Clyde versus Mike rank. I remember that. you know some vividly you don't. Portland had a great team that year and you know. It's real, cushy and Duckworth remember. How big was. For sure how wrestling! Kevin Duckworth. but yeah that going into. Drexler loses versus talk. You know that, but you know. I lever wrote that in Portland probably regrets it and you know director actually probably not too happy that they did that because you know I think people. Do you know John Joining Right now? You know he was phenomenal. That's. Lastly Pat. Adam silver the NBA Commissioner over the weekend on Friday put out on a conference call with some of the player wraps that be prepared to come back to play at some point, but also. Start thinking about playing next season with no fans as well. Have you given thought to what it's going to look like moving forward? We've talked to you and I've talked a little bit about wind. Things can come back and you've got to make sure everybody's safe, and all of those things but I do think it's more and more realistic that. Everything is going to start at some point and maybe continue for a long time with nobody in the building. That's going to be fascinating to watch that for me. Just the the sports with nobody in the building angle and we're all just watching on TV. Well, here's a here's a set of a sponge dying. I've got. To in the morning and I'm watching allergy twins against. NC daigneault's. Polian league and there was nobody there It was weird, but yeah. I think I will see that and the players that didn't have adjusted only talked about the the mental part of it and the height. You don't want to cheat pumped up for a game. It's you know I don't know understand. Justin and you do how how much goes into to playing a game. Right I mean you know? Some of the field operations took a game operations to you? Don't get everything involved in. You know so it It's IT'S GONNA be. King interesting to see you know I hoping that you know. Again I seen a hundred times at times that you know things, settle down, and we get back to some type of normality, but at some point in time I golf is planning on it you gotTa. The water and see what happens. What is a shaft Micheletti preparing this week well It's A. It's a surprise from tonight. I got one hundred percents. you know. Decide. Say.

If you want to give your mother's Day, shout out, we will try to get to those as we go I. Want to do a quick at gophersports. Round up here before I get to some more mother's Day. Day stuff next segment as well as the my annual tribute to what I think is the best moms movie out there we will get to that next segment as well, but there are a lot of lot of gopher sports news over the weekend, and really in the last twenty four hours as well I want to start with the good news. The great news actually that Casey O'Brien. tweeted out within the last couple of days that he has now beaten cancer, not once not twice, not times not four times, but five times he tweeted out a couple of days ago last day of Chemo five-time survivor God is taken care of me again surrounded by all my hero, doctors and nurses thankful to be treated at the best hospital in the country, and then He. He tagged at U M N Children's pretty incredible story. Everybody learned a lot about Casey this past season. As you really going back a year ago, he was the featured speaker at the big ten football media day kickoff luncheon, and really it was the first time that a star player in my time in my eleven years now ten years of going to the luncheon. was featured. Yeah, typically, it's a quarterback. Kirk cousins gave it one year Denard Robinson gave it another year, or it's somebody that is you know gone crazy. In the academic world. There was a Penn State football player that gave that speech year ago, but Casey was phenomenal year ago, and talked about his journey with cancer and talked about what he learned through football. Football and really took the country by storm, and as the gophers gained notoriety a year ago, so did the Casey, O'Brien story, and he got to hold for the first time in the rutgers game out in Jersey, and one and unbelievable moment that was held a couple of times. Actually I think three times at first. We thought AKC my get any Mike. Mike it to hold as PJ said after the game will get to say that he played big ten football, which is something, nobody can ever take away from him and we in an otherwise forgettable evening in new, Brunswick New Jersey Piscataway New Jersey. We stayed in New Brunswick a route of the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. The story that day was Casey O'Brien getting on. On the field, whole Dini held the next week. I think against Nebraska as well and one the you know you Disney Spirit award a year ago, had a big college game day feature a year ago and really was. You're one of the heartbeat of the team last year, and just a hell of a dude All thing you know all things. Being, equal, unbelievable, dude, unbelievable family, and as I saw the picture. that. He tweeted out on Friday. You see KC and he's got his hat and he's got his glasses and he's giving the thumbs up what? Struck me about the picture and why? It's Awesome Casey went. This route was. And just count during the break I. Count Seventeen people around him. And, they're all wearing masks and. I think it's seven team. You can double. Check me if you need to. But I just think about all the doctors and nurses that are working right now, not just on covid nineteen, which in of itself is big. Enough Challenge, right. but dealing with all the other stuff that stuff doesn't stop, and that's one of the things we've talked about. You know these medical people that we've had on the last couple of months of Said Hey, yeah, we're dealing with corona virus, but don't forget. There's still heart attacks. They're still strokes. They're still cancer. They're still babies being born. There's still a lot of things and that's. That's what struck me about Casey's picture and I'm sure it was his intention to highlight all of those people from Masonic Children's hospital at the you, you know seventeen people and I'm guessing the numbers even a lot more that have helped not just him, but had are helping so many ongoing as we speak right now so I want to give a special. Shout out to all them. because. That's what I took from the picture and I think that's what Casey wanted us to take from the picture knowing how selfless he is just generally, that is pretty remarkable and pretty amazing. All the people that are going in day after day. Taking all the precautions and really dealing with the unknown, that is coded nineteen, and they're going about their jobs on the front lines while a lot of us are at home or coming into the office a little bit later than we usually do they're going in every single day and putting themselves potentially in harm's way so special. Shout out to them, and that includes my sister-in-law, carly, who sent us a picture today on Mother's Day nurse at she's also eight months pregnant and she was on call this weekend and she got called in and so on Mother's Day. She rolled in. She sent us a picture with. Some kind of has matt suit contraption. Right the mask the. Plastic Shield over her face There's a lot of people like that out there so happy. Mother's Day Carly and stay safe today, and hopefully your boys behave themselves kind of knowing them. They're just like mine. They won't, but we can all hope. We can all hope and dream, so Casey O'Brien announces that he's beaten cancer for the fifth time in less important gopher football news. They got another four star recruit last night. This is an Illinois running back. His name's Marquees Irving and he's now the sixteenth committed player for the twenty twenty. I guess twenty twenty one class for Golden Gopher football. He's from country. Club, Hills Illinois goes to Hillcrest High School, and he had two dozen offers, five, ten, one, hundred and seventy five pound, running back, chose the gophers instead of Michigan Iowa. Wisconsin and Nebraska he is their fifth four star recruit this gopher. Gopher class now ranked sixth in the nation and second in the big ten conference, according to two four seven sports dot com, that's the site that Burns he writes for Ryan Burns as well as Ryan James from gopher illustrated dot com, so the recruiting continues, and it's been a pretty incredible transformation you know. When we hired PJ flecked Gophers, the number one thing he said when he got hired was the most important thing in the program is going to be the players number one, but recruiting recruiting is the lifeblood. And I think we've seen the upgrade in recruiting has been nothing short of. Relentless and spectacular, and we'll see where this class finishes up. There's a long way to go from here and signing day. Obviously, but the. Oh, I've said it a million times. What's fascinating about the West right now? In the big ten side of things is the recruiting is up at a level that it's never been before, and that's not just Minnesota that's. That's Wisconsin and it's going to be awesome to see where this thing goes. On, this thing develops because these schools. And the most you know big, the biggest jump would be the gophers in the last handful of years. What you know, the recruiting has been like historically, and now armed with an eleven win, season and outback bowl win and a lot of that national notoriety that we were just talking about what PJ's doing with it, and Irving here is the fifteenth best running back in the country, according to two four seven sports and the gophers right now sit in the top ten a place where they rarely have been if ever so. So, that's the exciting part I talked about last week. what's happened with the program here the last few years is you don't just think about the season anymore when you think about Gopher football, you think about the recruiting season. You think about the commitments you continue to see all this news anything about drafted day the fact that they set a record a couple of weeks ago with all the gophers that were drafted and the cool thing for pj right now is that there's not a lot of other news going on. Right now we've typically be talking about the NHL Playoffs the NBA Playoffs Major League. Baseball would be front and center on a lot of things we'd have NFL rookie camps, and Minicam all those things coming up, so not only. Is it good news that he's recruiting this well? They're getting as much run in terms of publicity and buzz that they probably have ever gotten when. When it comes to recruiting, because we're looking for news, and they've got good news continuing to pour in as it pertains to other recruiting stuff, so I'm in the V, four star recruit for this class of twenty, twenty, two, thousand, twenty one. They've got a sixteen members and a really good running back. It appears as decided. He wants to be in the boat lastly. GOPHERSPORTS roundup here guard bj greenlees going to transfer to a different program. People are probably going. WHO's bj Greenlee and I would say yeah. That's kind of the point He was recruited a year ago mostly because they needed somebody and. He was kind of seen as a developmental point guard played nineteen games didn't play very much, went sporadically without playing and was. If you want to know why. The gophers struggled a year ago, especially down the stretch is why Marcus car had to play your forty minutes a game because they didn't have a legitimate option in the backup point guard, they hoped I think greenlee would be that, but he was a spring Saini. He was recruited late kind of because they needed bodies, and it was. You know part of I, think part of the not doing naming specific names, but. Richard has said I need to do a better job of managing the roster in a normal year having a freshman point guard that Kinda gets to develop in play and not worry about having to be thrown in. You can get away with that last year. They needed a little bit more out of it, but he's He's GonNa transfer from gainesville Florida adjoins Peyton Willis in terms of the transfers this year, so they've got another scholarship. Scholarship Open so I think by my count. They've got to open right now. Given that they're waiting on drew Peterson from rice on what his decision is going to be I. Know There's some theories that they may have. Another guy lined up here I'll give you some more details about him. After the break, but bj greenlee will transfer. Leave the program, so that's the gopher sports roundup. Good News on O'Brien. Good News on Marquees Irving and I guess News on a point guard that is. From the basketball team, we've got Mike trudell about fifteen minutes from now to talk Jordan dock as well as the Kobe connection to it when we come back more mother's Day trips, and for my money, the Mother's Day movie. You have to watch today if you listen to the fan. Until Sir! John. took. Only! Cake Show Continues Guards Umbrian here until one o'clock Mike Trudell from Los Angeles Lakers, Lakers dot com joins us to talk Jordan doc about ten minutes from now at Brian have. You ever seen the movie bad MOMS. With Neela. Good. Right bad ma well I'm about to. Dorset. Yearly Mother's Day tribute. You can go bad MOMS. You can go bad mom's Christmas, which was the sequel? Either Way I. If you haven't seen it, I would highly recommend that I'll give you kind of a thumbnail of it here in the next couple of minutes Mila Kunis as you mentioned. Has a great husband over achieving children, a beautiful home and a successful career. Unfortunately, she's overworked, exhausted and ready to snap. I think I built the entire first segment on this show about the the conundrum of motherhood and parenthood in general, but certainly motherhood to a much higher degree, so she gets fed up. There's a twenty sixteen movie and if you haven't seen it I, highly recommend it. It's not you know it's a little graphic. It's a little vulgar. The play by play every year I have to bleep out some stuff and one segment I just completely took off because it would just be bleep. BLEEP bleep bleep, so I took it out but I. think it speaks perfectly. Keeps it real. And I've said that on the Fan Dad's podcasts and anytime I talk about Fatherhood or parenthood or motherhood or whatever. I always try to keep it real I. Don't there's great parts to it? It is rewarding I. Have It's we like to joke that? It's the least rewarding job in the world, but there are some rewards along the way I've complimented you on that I like you're realistic. Take on it instead of kind of sugar coating. Thank you. It's a polarizing subject. Some people get very upset as Evidenced early as I was accused of Anti parent propaganda, which was interesting to me. Because I do I love my children. They're great. They're. Hashtag blessed, but not gonNA pretend like it's all flowers and sunshine and rainbows all the time because that's not realistic. We're not here to lie to you and that's what bad mom's does. It's their rebellion with Mila Kunis Kristen, Bell and Kathryn Hahn. They basically shut it down. They say enough is enough were out on the whole moms concept. They give up more or less. and. Not to give away the whole plot, you should watch it and it's very funny and I think it's great and Mila Kunis is terrific and Catherine Kristen Bell. They all play their roles beautifully. And there's a good message at the end of it, which will get to here in a minute, but the moral is. It's these MOMS against the perfect mom and everybody out. There knows it. We. We've talked about it over the years. The mom shaming the mom on mom crime, the Oh. You those are store-bought for the bake sale for the school. Oh, that's interesting. You know just the passive aggressive. I call it. minnetonka mounts because that's where I live, but it could be anywhere. The passive aggressive swipes at other mothers and you know it happens. So. Don't tell me that it doesn't the mom on non crime so to speak. They rebel against it and the the crux of it. The climax of the movie is when. Christina. Character Gwendolyn, who is the perfect PTA mom at least on the surface. Basically gets. Me Lacunas daughter kicked off the soccer team. Meal Kunas has had enough. and Fed up about it, but. Her daughter and son basically leave because she's already given up, says what are you doing? Mom and they go to live with that. There's a divorce in the middle. I'm Kinda bouncing around, but it all ends up with a school board or PTO. Election between Meola. And Christina applegate. Between Amy. And Gwendolyn. And Amy doesn't WANNA go. She's beaten down by the whole thing. She's depressed. She's sitting in her house by herself. Her kids have left. She's failed as a mother. And it's then that you get the full message of the movie. All the moms in school hate me. And I'm a complete and utter failure as a mother. First of all, you are so not a failure as a mother. In fact, you're the best mother that we've ever seen true that you give your kids salad. You remember your kids, birthdays I mean. I sat here and watched. You wait until your kid fell asleep before you got high. Most MOMS to Carlo. Whatever this is! This is the worst thing I've ever seen. You quit trying. We. Don't quit Munster. quit. Quitting is for dance. Listen, no matter what is thrown at US moms we have to. We have to just keep Gong and do you know why because we have low self esteem? Oh, no, no! Is, because we love our kids, because we love our stupid, selfish, ungrateful little faces. That's why we love him so much that we would do. Literally anything for them. Because, I can't win the election God. This is not about the election, amy. This is about standing up to the. That your little girl. Now you're gonNA. Sit here and let Gwendolyn. Get Away with you were going to rise up like a small little white Apollo creed. And you're going to look at when you're GonNa say you do what you want to me. I don't care. Throw it at me, but you with my daughter. And now I have to fight you. I will fight you in the playground. I will fight you in the cafeteria. I will even fight you in the parking. Lot of trader Joe's. But. I will have justice from my little girl. Because I am. Mom. And we protect our he. said get this couch. Turn off twelve years a slave. Let's body slam this. Goosebumps every time Catherine Hans Emotional. Resounding Pep, talk rousing pep talk. To get amy off the couch to go. Debate Gwendolyn at the PTA. Whatever it is election I I. Guess it's the election for PTA, president. I'm not exactly sure I. Don't know how that works, but it's the message of the movie. That's what it is parenting socks. It's hard, but you know what you do it and you do it because you love your kids. And that's why I love the movie so much because it keeps a real. And that's what we try to fan. Dad's every week. We. Tell all the work we're all. We always say we're not giving advice because. We don't know we really don't have answers. No, and that's the beauty of it and I think that's what my message to all the moms out. There would be today as we know that you don't know how to do it what to do. You think you're failing? And you're not feeling? And that's the point. They failed through that whole movie, but when push came to shove, they were there to defend their kids back up their kids and you know what they learned that. Perfect Gwendolyn She didn't have it all figured out after. Aw! I won't give you all the details. If you haven't seen it, but appearances can be kept up. We talked about that all the time. As pertains to the social media highlight reel of everybody's lives, so if you haven't seen bad mom's bad moms Christmas, you'll feel a lot better about yourself. You'll relate. I think to a lot of people, but to me that stretch I, think this is the third year in a row I played it on Mother's Day to me. It sums up. Mom's perfectly that they fight for their kids their battle. Battle, for their kids, they're there for their kids. Even though like you say, we're not always grateful. As kids were not always well behaved as kids were certainly far from perfect, but I love that movie, I love both of the movies. I think the sequel is fine. They're both the same. They're both funny and they both keep it real bad mom's Christmas. You can figure out what it is. Basically they just give up on Christmas. They rebel against Christmas. 'cause. That's a whole nother thing. I didn't even talk about all the things MOMS do for Christmas and the dad just shows up and go would be good. GotTa rap now all you have everything wrapped already okay. I'm speaking from my house, but I'm for a lot of houses as well. Let's get to the Jordan documentary.

I am not good at craft whatsoever has really worried about this I had faith time the teacher tell me through it basically like you put some concrete in a bowl, mix it with water, and then eventually add to it, and the boys were so pumped about it they kind of hinted or looted to it to tell mom about it all week long. Yeah, that was waiting for her when she walked upstairs young. Who Go ahead? NO GO AHEAD GO! Why had a similar? Here's the thing is I think this year has brought on an extra challenge for all holidays, because no one ever leaves the house anymore. Mike right like it used to be. If mom is at work or mom is running errands or mom is running or jogging or doing something. That's when you maximize you. Get the kids together all right here we go. We've got to get our stuff ready for mom, right and. No one ever leaves anymore, so there's never any doubt you can't surprise. Anybody and I had kind of similar deal where I I don't even know what my wife was doing I. I, don't know how I got her out of the house, but I had about twenty seven minutes to get the cards printed the crayons out the colored pencils out. They had to pick which picture they wanted to color for mom and you know I. I mean they can't decide anything in less than fifteen minutes, and they argue over who should do. What should what color I yelled at him? One of them cried, but at the end of the day, and then the and then the the younger one wants to. The the youngest boy is three immediately wants to tell them where everything is, so it's A. It was a challenge this year. I, thought from other stack like mad at. Total chaos total anarchy, my my only saving grace been like on on every other morning at least she will stay down in a room and other mats. Our master is on. The bottom floor there are no basements in California. Right and that's you like. Super, rich are down there every and everything else upstairs, so she stayed down there and kind of incense. She's pregnant. She's more tired than usual. Usually she wakes up anyway. it does everything, but so for today we went, and since I can't cook, unlike you I'm sure you prepared ridiculously amazing. Brunch I had to go pick I'd pick it up at this This terrific little French spot, so I- social distance at the boys waiting in the car. The alarm went off in the car like three times because I was. was waiting on the car that we have if you if you lock the door and leave the kids in it, then the frigging alarm goes off and I'm like I don't want them to come inside with the virus potentially in the Air Justin. Yeah, let them in the car instead and then the Largos outdoors past the point is, we got the food. We brought it back. I've been pretend like I did she was well aware that I couldn't do that, but you on the other hand prepare to five correspond breakfast. And lunch to and I've got plans all day. Yeah, there's no question about that well yesterday. I took the boys to pick up like we had like a cookie bouquet made. You know one of those personalized cookie stores you know the that are all the rage now and then we also got another gift that I had to pick up and I. Actually just gave up and I said. If we go in because I knew they were gonNa tell her everything that was there and we can't really hide anything in our house so I just said Mommy and she. She wants to stuff today and will and so. She said Yeah. We'll do today. They wouldn't be able to keep the secret, so we actually did the gifts yesterday. And then we unveiled the cards and the videos that I had a make yesterday that was like the Mother's Day deal, but I'm curious how other I should have asked earlier. How other dad's got around it when you gotta? have time to sneak around. You know to get everything done not only that, but like I I ordered a couple of things on Amazon. Obviously we have the same Amazon Account. Thought! Okay, yeah So I'm so bad at like she she only likes so. Let's say if we go into a store. And we see address, and I'm like Oh. That's a that's a pretty dress honey. Don't you think and if I say then? She immediately doesn't take crazy so I learned now. Tell me what she likes. And then she sends me a link, and then I go pick it up and the only way that I essentially win. That one is if it's expensive enough to make it seem like it's some sort of a lot like A. I wouldn't have done it on my own or something like that, so so so we did that. And then the boys are are desperately into aside from Sports Star Wars. They're obsessed with stars right now, and so they. They insisted they. We get this like you know best mom. In the galaxy thing they found Amazon and of course then they spoiled that a week in advance before I came, and then we also made one of those mugs like on shutter. Fly where you can select all the pictures. Okay, so we did one of those, and of course that in and of course I didn't do it early enough, so that's not here. So that will come in sometime. Next makes just killing it out here. They're blessed to have us. The the women in our lives are so blessed to have us I think that's the lesson of Mother's Day. Yeah and and and I like I don't know if you WANNA. Get into the whole lot social media posting thing that we can save that for next time we chat, but yeah we when I texted online about that earlier. I thought that was interesting. Your your strong stance on on the subject. I'm out. I'm out on happy Mother's Day father's Day. Happy Birthdays. I keep everything off line, and maybe that's. That's not the way to do it anymore. Maybe my wife wishes that I. You know I I would grab photos that you didn't like if I posted a bunch of you know loving photos of her and her children. She would say that she didn't like those photos. And then it then it defeats the purpose a little bit, so that's part of the reason it's. It's my own self preservation to. To like leave my wife out of the Post. You know but I. I like to keep things private, not ripping anybody that does it and believe me I'm in the minority because of you have posted today whether it's your mom and your wife or whatever you've all done it, so I'm not gonna read it, but I just prefer. There's some things I like to keep out of the public little. Little Bit. That's it. That's it. Yeah. I Yeah I I respect that I held out for many years why so many of them? Social media been around forever? But at least since we've had kids for the first few, and then I just noticed that look of I, one time, and she was going through and like Oh, look honey. Look at all. These nice photos that like our friend Eric. or Oh look Robbie posted about his wife. Simmer isn't that. Isn't that cute honey? I was like all right I got in my. Our instagram is already sort of public to the point where I put the voice photos down there, so I was kind of like all right well I can't. I can't put all that stuff up and then not do this but I. I was sort of envious that you have still held out to this point, I think when. When we talk next year at this time, it'll probably be the last year that you'd probably won't be able to get away with probably came maybe I'll ask her I'll see me. I'll see what she thinks about. We're talking with Mike. Trudell or an ozone out in Los Angeles as he mentioned, is killing it out in California. Lakers sideline reporter host analysts Lakers Dot Com reporter as well I. is it Instagram or twitter that you go live on after? For the Jordan documentary. Where did I find you late last Sunday night? which was that? That was instagram. Yeah, into last week. I just had too many Jordan thoughts on my mind. that I couldn't get out so I had a buddy Ben colliver. Who writes for The Washington Post come on and just up down I I. Don't know if I'm GONNA. Do it tonight. The guards just because it's mother's Day and everything I don't know I may not like I get so fired up watching these that. I often will probably be on any, and that's why I mean I. was we were texting about it last week? And then I I saw your on I jumped on E. Yusei commented multiple. Times I'm so into this. Mike and we've got seven eight tonight. And before we talk about some specifics like what what of your general impressions been of the first six episodes? So I you and I are are probably going to have a lot of the same thoughts on this, which is why it's fun, because like I to me I. Don't know it's hard for me to understand how you wouldn't think. Jordan is the most awesome thing in the world, I. Think is not just a player, but the brand sneakers the just the coolness to shape had hearing everything like to me. That literally has defined. What I think is cool in my life, and it's hard. It's hard for me to comprehend There's somebody might not think the same way. So so like I. You and I grew up of course in in the eighties in Minnesota where there was no MBA team in my house, we didn't have cable all the time, but we got wgn so like I I got to watch I. Watch a ton of and cubs games, and of course the twins especially going like eighty seven ninety one. We gotTA leave. Me But like the Bulls were that were that team that I really grew up with in a sense and then the nineties. I mean it was lived. There was nothing the balls that really mattered. It seems like by the way abnormal breen for taking this stars in moving down to the North Stars in Texas. That just came up in my head in hurt me hurt me. I Remember I. Remember wearing a Jersey that said. I digress I digress. Oh, the point was like right in that wheelhouse with you. Where everything about this Guy was was just magical to me, and so getting to relive the moments like I'm since I'm such a Jordan now it's not necessarily been surprised by a bunch of stuff, but it's just. It's the thing that I like the most is just Jordan, being Jordan Yup and giving his real takes on everything, and just knowing that that's what it took like that the way that his personality is, that's why he was the best and so. So you can for the people that are kind of Oh I don't know I don't know if I. There's some stuff the rest of the wrong way. I'm like no, you don't get it like that's that's. You can't have it both ways. You can't the goat and then not take all that goes with it. How many times do you remember watching him live? Did you ever go to one of those goals? Wolves Games back at target center in the mid nineties. Topic in the in the Trudell Hustle, my mom, actually I've got her watching the documentary from from her house, and she lives in Maryland at the moment. They moved away from Minnesota a couple years ago in retirement, and she called me and she said honey I I like I know how much Michael Jordan issue. I'm so sorry I. I don't know why. We didn't just do what we had to do to get tickets every year and I'm like well because they were too expensive. like that was the one game right where you can go to a twins game the whole family. Maybe you gonNA fudd records before it's like ten bucks to see the family of five. Five records you go to the twins game and spend like twenty bucks for the whole family. You know the ones when the Bulls were in town I remember. My Dad used to look like it was. It was a lot it was going to a go into a game today. Yeah, because the tickets were started, so we never we almost never went. There was one time in high school that I found a way to get to get a ticket, and I can't I should remember this more but I and then there was the whole stay in school jam. Remember that was that ninety three. The up the NBA. When the All Star game was ninety four. Yeah Ninety Four. Ninety four. Ninety three ninety four. I did I. Did I do remember going going to all those facilities but I don't specifically remember Jordan about it, so it was really just like one game that I got to see him in person up until the point where I was in college, and I went to see wizards bowls. You know so so i. saw like Jordan played for the wizards in in that context, but you have. Did you end up getting to go to ones visit at the end? You remember yeah, and and I. I'M GONNA. I feel a little bad now. Knowing that because I hate me, I think after this, and I may have seen him see. We had season tickets early. And I remember going to games of the Dome, so I may have seen in their. Early, but once you know kind of mid nineties and kids you grow up and you have your own things. You don't really have season tickets anymore. At least we didn't, but it was the first year back on the first full year backs ninety, five, ninety, six, seventy, two in ten year when. When they went. You know and that's what I wanted to get your thoughts on to. You might have to go on, and I haven't told this whole story on the air. I don't think but I'm plane I. I think I must be in seventh grade and one of my teammates who went to Blake named John Redgrave. I haven't talked to him in twenty five years, but I'll never forget John Redgrave, because his dad had tickets to the wolves games, and I was at his house, and we were just probably not surprising, not surprising Medicare. They went to blake the yeah, exactly and by the way they were unbelievable tickets. I don't think I've ever sat in nicer tickets. But he came downstairs and he's like. Hey, my dad just mentioned that he's got tickets to the Bulls game tonight. would you wanna go and of course I WOULD WANNA goal. He was the acting I went to like one or two games. Redgrave I can't remember but I remember this one and Dude I remember everything about this night. I remember that we. We ate at the Friday's right next to where we are right now in St, Louis Park after the game I. Remember that Jr Rider had an unbelievable game. It was KGB's rookie year, and it was Kinda, WanNa his coming out parties. They played great, but what was amazing about it? And what I think is revealed again in this Doc Mike is that? That was a back to back for the Bulls that night right, and because I went back and looked at this, and they played somewhere the night before. And you know the NBA like especially the way it is now on. If it was now like I, might not even seen him like he might have. It might have been a load management night form, but but him, and that team in that era was like well the Games on the schedule. We're GONNA play and And by the way we're kind of on a bleep Utah because we just, we didn't win the title. The last two years and wolves played great place was packed. It was the the Beatles Mania Rockstar deal. And in the fourth quarter Jordan hit like three jumpers right, and is riders face who playing great defense, and gave him a little half smirk as he backpedaled like he always would, and twenty five years later dude I. Remember like every single thing about that night. Yeah now that's that's incredible I. Mean I I just I watched obviously at all on tv I certainly like I. Remember that game and I remember like almost everything about that entire season. And then I did the fact that I the fact that I did go like. I'm just saying it's like now that I go to games like that's sort of like my my job. That's all I do all year. Yeah, I think growing up. It was still though it was so special to get to go once or twice, and so like even I didn't I didn't have the expectation. I guess to go and now now. I worry that my kids have the chance to go to games a lot more because I got some sort of part of my. My. Job and I worry that that like ruined part of this This sports experience where for us like that was the dream going once once the dream? Yes, and and you've got to think about that for years and years and like I remember like all of the twins games when I was when I was young, and I remember like the first time that I got Jerry autograph yet in like on a foul ball in the Metrodome and all that kind of. Of stuff I'm hoping that I can instill that same level sort of separateness that for my kids as we move forward, and especially, now that you're big time guy in Minnesota, and you're probably to video game you gotTa. You gotTA gotTa stuff out to I'm with you I. Hope The innocence isn't loss because it was. is tremendous memory. We're talking with Mike. trudell Lakers sideline reporter on TV Lakers dot, com reporter as well used to work for the timber wolves. Wolves, that's how we met Minnesota's. Oh. NOW LIVING OUT IN LA couple of final thoughts, your Mike, what was it like for you as a guy who covered Kobe and spent a lot of time around Kobe to see him open episode five, because that hit me like a truck that he was part of it, not really expecting. I thought it was great production to just open it with Koby. How did you find yourself as you were watching that part of it? Well, I've been bracing myself for this because I knew that Kobe had done the interview for the doc in July, and and so like there was something else that I was doing some different media rounds for a couple of different things with with book that he had written in some other stuff, so I knew that there was gonna be something associated with the Jordan dock, and then of course they finished editing his scenes, which really much editing any kind of like you know exactly what what what to say and what to do. a couple of weeks before the helicopter crashed, and so I was like all emotional, just going into it. It, but I'm. It's a little bit like I think about this. Sometimes in the way that I think about my dad, my dad passed a couple of years ago and kind of suddenly, and so the first year it. It was really tough for me to pull out anything like a picture of video and I've just being sad, but now that it's been now that it's been two years I can look at pictures and I can laugh and I can have some better members so I'm I'm not quite. There was Kobe yet where like it was still so soon. It seem so fresh. That like I'm still kind of just feeling awful about it. Put to put that part aside though I cope, there was this thing with Kobe like there were a couple of things that we would talk about When the camera was like neither waiting for the interview to start, or after it ended, and there was always like a couple of beats there, and it was usually about either hip, hop or soccer, those kind of the first things once I had my kids then. Then, it became more about kids, but the other thing was Jordan because he knew I was obsessed and kind of grew up in Jordan, and I would always try to try to sneak questions in about him, and Kobe was pretty protective of his relationship Jordan. Like when when Jordan spoke at his service, a lot of that stuff even like I, so Kobe talked about how much he loved Jordan, but he never. Knew how close they were, because he was very protective of that right, and so when I was in the building staples center when Jordan got up there to speak about coby and I. Feel like I just couldn't even. I didn't know what to do like I became a puddle. It was just listening to it and you got like you've got that sense out of it for me. That's what came up again. just watching the documentary, it just seemed like for a guy that has the doesn't kill talk trash to anybody and everybody his teammates GM. Winning, but Kobe was just as he was at one guy that he had this little soft spot for because he was at one guy that same level of drive and determination and skill. The I think that's well said I will surely text you tonight as we have episode seven and eight. Thanks for coming on this morning. Great job with all your mother's festivities and best of luck with the rest of them. I'm sure you've got a lot more in the hopper man. Thanks, thanks for jumping on Mother's Day. Look it's always a pleasure to talk to you and and again I like I like Blake and I liked it. You know what I can't take it I don't okay. or no all the public schools out there we appreciate everybody on public to don't don't be put me in Blake are. To. IRONMAN. That's my trudell from Lakers dot com as well as spectrum sports out there in Los Angeles covers. The Lakers has for a really long time. One of my favorite dudes and I think you can see why thanks to him for taking the time. Thanks to Patna Galati for taking the time. Thanks for you and for everything you do each and every Sunday Johnny Athletic among our guests tomorrow on bumper to bumper. Bumper happy mother's Day to all the MOMS there including my mom, my wife, my mother in law, my sister, my sisters in law. All of you out. There have a great day. We love you. Thank you for everything you do for us and sorry that we can't be helpful like Seinfeld said we want to be. We just don't know how to do it. It's not our fault. Happy Mother's Day everybody.

Yeah i mean that partner. Shaving is a thing and maybe not every couple of into that sort of thing but when you make it a game it's just like with kids when you're trying to teach them something naked engaging if you make it exciting it's fun you'll remember you'll you'll grow. You'll learn if you make partners shave time hot wheels. Burn the hair off so what you're trying to tell me as you'll never have more fun shaving. Your wife's huge would've gone to lakes. Watch out for the dangerous curves. I know i know are already out there. They're a bunch of sickos. Alright fighting go there. They would have cost me especially the ladies among them. He had the ladies that actually listen. This podcast real sick. Roy deplorable people. Or they've just been duped into thinking that we're decent and now the veil has been lifted from. There is the the like fail. No no no johnny johnny ninth of the lad. Vail's gooch like veil. Why didn't you say so suna anyway as long as we're catering to our female audience. Oh i have an amazon review for. I don't think this is an actual word. I'll just spell it out the you t. j. c. n. r. breast lift strapless backless pedals. I think this is supposed to be nicholas more than just miss. Or they added an extra s. on the end of nipples. I don't know. But i'd like to think that nickless is a word because that's cool. Down was nicholas covers push-up self. Adhesive invisible sticky bra for women. You know what my favorite Prolific actress who sat nicholas cage. I don't know why. I didn't see it coming somebody. But it was the lack nipples. That's the beginning to get to some people. Yeah that was way more satisfying than it had to be becca. Titles are review for those of us for the janssen our audience who might not know These are the bras that women wear if they have a backless or strapless dress. They don't want the bra-strap showing so it's just like real deal over the shoulder. Boulder holders but not over the shoulder at all. Oh just like they're like silicone cups. That you mash against your chest i see you gotta kinda pull up this. Little medieval fantasy girl warrior armor. Not the you know. Not the accurate stuff. The real sleazy stuff. Right in only made of silicone jelly gooey stuff and you just sort of like not necessarily tape it. But it's got sticky stuff in your e kind of hong. Come up and smash them against your chest and then you pull your your cute little dress over it. And there's no straps and your back you beautiful back you get to show off your tan and whatnot and it looks crazy. So you're telling me they didn't even enchant these speller flecked. They're not enchanted whatsoever. They're just enchanted for little boys. A young gentleman who think all along lap goral. Lets me fascinated by these. just impressed. becca hurley titles review might work for lemons oranges but not pomelos a different type of citrus. If you're wondering. They're bigger. The bigger the greek food ian becker rights. Okay yeah nope they're going back. I put these on readjusted a couple times and watched a movie. I barely moved and the silicone started rolling up got up and vacuum. The house in the top part completely separated from my skin. I guess because there was a little bit of sweat which you can see in the pictures she adds. Don't send me the pictures i won't. I'll just confirm that. There was visible. Sweat becca continues. The adhesion was weird. Yes it was sticky enough. So that i wouldn't say they're exactly painful to remove but it's not comfortable within five minutes of wearing them though. There were bubbles in the clear. Part that i had to press out. I don't know how people would dance in these if you're any bigger than a b. cup full disclosure. I am a d to w depending on how the bras made. These are not chihuahuas. I'm carrying around some saint bernards. And i understand that but don't tell me your product will work for me when it obviously won't i may try some other styles to see if i can find something that works. I'd love to be able to have an option where i don't have to worry about straps showing. I'm honestly not convinced that exists. One star like the to preface our commentary on this with with the fact that all women are queens and we are but lowly scumbag men. Yes who who who do not even deserve this forbidden knowledge we today. We took a bite of the forbidden Molo looked into a world that that we have no business being a part of know that reminds me. Have you seen the. I think it was a vine or i think at an older sister took off her I ll ashes and little brother in run. We're like how'd you do that. They thought they were like her. Realize there's something we didn't know about climate eyelashes. They're just scared. But yeah i. This is kinda the next level of that we we fake lashes. We've seen the crimping thing. Fake nails. I get it we got it. It's good fake. Nails are pretty cool. Or to suppression sometime. But a booby cups. It's hard to make those are typically express especially when they're crawling their way up your neck apparently or think climbing up to strangle you the sticky plastic in the name of beauty and comfort. No no comfort here. I just in this kind of stuff makes me wanna try it out just know the suffering just so i can sympathize. I do it. Anything wants maybe they can give us a couple of many ones for for what for our little Kind of yes. She compared herself to two dogs. I wonder what. I would compare this body to wait while our our little chicken. One that can just sorta suction cup then that keeps things in place then that i might be looking behind or it might be able to get underneath. That's i guess that's the body part where miss frizzle traveling to today. but Before i i let myself wander anymore i have a wholesome review for. Ma'am this is for the original tomah. Gottschee sky color version was written by kimberley. She titles this will never be the same as the ninety s versions. These are not original tamagotchi as the back of it. First off says two thousand seventeen. Which i don't understand it's probably very hard to find something that was made back in nineteen ninety six or nineteen ninety-seven in large quantities. I take very good care of these things. This is not my second return hoping that generation to would have forever been it will go to the go past three years of age with full hell's qualities foale food fully happy full maintained. These are defective. They're not like these to be back in the nineties. That's the end of the first sentence there or they should not be advertise like they were original tamagotchi from ninety six and nineteen ninety seven because these are definitely not. Yes maybe they look like it. But they're definitely not programmed the same very very disappointed. One-star whoa this person's got the car facts on it. Yeah her airtime. Gachi came with the carfax history report. And it's been tended to. It's been great this. This is a us gottschee. This was summoned someone else's tamagotchi and she's kind of weird out by that. This one's a lemon. What my my got you be looking lemon. I wanted to look more like a sort of a bunny. Rabbit severed cartoon head is just kinda strange. A virtual pet. You want somebody. Else's virtual pet. No then don't have feeling so i definitely want them all their artificial feelings to be for only me. That's what you're getting out of having a virtual pet. yeah you get to claim full ownership. That's your worse. Noah fans are but cheeks about it. When you gotta dance in late Bunny rabbit who's full of food. You want you to be providing that food. I guess i can really relate to this but even though she cannot fathom the fact of a rerelease. I just think i'd get jealous. So who else has been feeding you. Bunny rabbit who else is cleaned up your little deng byles am i as good as the previous owner and if you find out your big sister or big bra anger. Anger smashed tamagotchi. I don't think he can throw this little sucker against the wall in smash rock on it. Yeah you go outside and re perform some sort of sick warlock ritual to smash it in a million pieces of the bell rock in a blood rage tears. Burning down your your red cheeks. Dancers last dance poops flats poop ashes to ashes and dust to dust Why this this just feels relevant to play now. A tamagotchi means like egg friend in japanese thomas for egg gotcha is for thomas dodgy those little egg pun on like egg friend tristan. This one's not going to rise. From its its egli ashes like a phoenix. The country's dead forever dead dead to me. You don't feel remorse after you see it's digital blood on your hands it. Only it only strengthened your conviction Yes smart solve vindicated at last man. And then you go by yourself a digital on. That's growing up folks. let's just growing up isn't it. I guess this is growing up. Earner Do you have review for all. I do Oh i do i feel like i've got some other like park. Ones got a toy. One but i feel like just really really changing things up and going a bit back in ima backlog through that slider that hot curve. Yeah you're not gonna see this one coming because this is from. The queen victoria market melbourne australia. A google review coming to us from sophie. Charlotte sophie writes. Well i guess no no. She's gonna explain. The market's just fine for us. I don't need to explain what the markets are so fi. We'll do it. Showed up matchup tom. She was anyway so via rights. There's nothing quite like the vibe of the vic markets by day and by night it exudes excitement the thrill of getting fresher fruit for bargain prices of haggling with a leather worker to drop the price. Five dollars the smell of the legendary trudeau's dipped in chocolate sauce. The feeling of tongue burnt by hot jammed from the donut. Van the feeling of being swept along by humanity into a vortex delicious specialty foods ranging from the melt in your mouth khawla to fresh cuts of kangaroos. Still hopping a very evoking place for me. Because it embodies victoria. It is a combination of our culture revolving around the creation of delicious food and drink drawn from one thousand nations all over the world. It is the epitome of australian multicultural. Spirit a wonderful experience even just to look at the victorian architecture and absorbed the emotions definitely recommend but you must know that the dirt the shouting and the shoving crowd is an indispensable part of the queen vic markets. Don't go expecting a boring clean joint five stars that refuses terrifying to me so much so much imagery in verbiage about spinning and spiraling i felt like that review spinning inspiring around me all the horrible things that does market assaulting my senses of drowning me like some certain whirlpool. It would spend the opposite direction if you're in australia You wouldn't even know. I felt like poop in american poop hitting hitting the australian toilet not knowing about to spending the onset direction so disoriented and what. What is she getting from worker while eating a chocolate dipped chiro chorus band. I don't know who a wristband as she getting. Some sort of leather bag in which to carry gemstones for her enchants skipping chaps maybe some chaps. We don't know what they might need australia. The running out there. Anything could kill them at any moment. Live or die. Sounds like this this festival. This market could kill them. At any moment yes dirt. The previous rambled near to death by the crowd on a nightly basis. That's just part of the experience folks. That's that's australia. Even our markets are like giant tarantula. Whisking you away too delicious flavors and pain. I mean i don't know if it's something they say there. But i absolutely love the the flip we say god gave me that stakes still moon get fresh cuts kangaroo. Still hopping That takes me there. I have eaten kangaroo. That's right king. King romy hopped down into my belly and It was fine. That's my view. Kangaroo is fine yeah. I think i've had some turkey in that is meat as yes. Just kinda like leaner beef. Nothing to write home about. And i will also say. That's not a tarot. This is a chair row. Chiro australian accident. I could try. But i'm going to. That's the spirit. Come on in how. I have one yearly and australian. What's his name. Mr rogers australian staley mister rogers. I have one more review. This place from dave phoenix. It's much shorter And i'll see if. I can ozzy it up. Just need to chandler zesty life. Facts friends on haughty day phoenix. I'm just gonna go english. I always go english so easy. It's so easy. Been a player had to be english. I need to hear it. And then i'll for for taking crack all have this is all grown. Always a great place to go if you do get the jam. Donuts as they are the best. Be careful as fish as the fresh ones have jammed. It's bad it's bad. I don't know how to create a you. Were there you were right there. Whatever jam dome gets. Let's kinda jammed donkeys. That's what they would say. Dave phoenix rights. Always a great place to go if you do go get the jam. Donuts as they are the best. Be careful as the fresh ones have jam. That is hot. Also get the chicken ribs. Heart emoji five stars. What is it. Chicken rib. Just the ribs of a chicken. Aren't they like to small to enjoy the only reason. I grabbed this one also because it doubly mentioned hot jam known as hot lava jam. That will murder you. Why is this. Why is this. The fucking fund market has to be like a death race like debt obstacle. Gorski looked into it a bit. The doughnuts are supposed to be american. Style chili's the jam is hot on the inside. Ma he's this international market the sham they lived next film. Put chocolate on charles. Americans don't put molten hot stuff in their donuts. Trama trample you to death for fun cheesy chicken in australia. Hey went on australia. Duncan and chocolate. That's how you do it. This is how we go to break.

I think the diehards would what cheerios australian right ships. No but i do know is we forgot to finish a segment and that segment which we deliver which we not toiled toil. Toil upon for weeks was the snack. It eight. that's right that snack tournament. Let we voted on. It's all done. That's it's commencement done for a while. Obviously for if you're just listening to this don't talk about every year on the internet. Someone makes a snack bracket much like march madness. A tournament bracket and people vote on the winners. And it's a good snacky time And we have the results of the ones we discussed. So i'm just gonna say the final four and we'll talk about how surprised we are at that. Okay from the dish. Category ice cream brownie up against the handful category popcorn and eminem's we went big on the popcorn and evidence where were not really from the spread. Category we got fresh bread and butter and from dip category. We got mozzarella sticks in marinara sauce. Two heavyweights right to to important people in my fatboy diet. But the that first matchup ice cream brownie popcorn Names easy choice for me. Yeah joyce even though. I don't think ice cream brownie is a dish. It's going to be a lot more satisfying than popcorn items. I wanna i wanna look back at. What seed browning ice cream. One brownian. Ice cream number one seed. Yeah as as was popcorn dams two one seeds there and to me. I scream brownies. A true one seed popcorn eminem is amid seed at best And it makes it obvious for the winner on the other side who got mozzarella sticks versus bren butter. We discussed this. Almost i would say at length because the fresh bread and none of that qualifying round qualifier was on there made it especially just attractive. Fresh bread is marvelous. Put some butter on their transcendent mozzarella sticks can be great. But i'm gonna give the the hit ratio for good homemade. Bread is probably higher than the hit ratio for motte sticks. Sometimes they're excellent. Sometimes you take a bite and you know the breading comes off the bottom half and this is awful. Now you breading in cheese separately. And don't disown as wisconsin boy. I'm not turning my back on the cheese i would. I you take. The best mozzarella stick is better than the best brett freshman butter i ever had in that sense. Variables here but spoiler. It was not that way. The internet sought fresh bread and bother moving onto the championship on the other side. Ice cream. brownie beat popcorn Names justly justly good. So now we have an interesting championship. A hard desert versus a hard appetizer. Really the appetizer. The pallet cleanser cleanser pal parer. You might say yeah ice cream running versus fresh bread and butter. I don't know at that. Even though i pick mozzarell- stick. And i love brownies and i love ice cream. Fresh bread and butter wins this championship to me They're both not necessarily healthy options. Ryo again homemade bread. If it's fresh it has the potential to to be to have high quality ingredients where it might be healthy but then you're slapping butter on it. Oh if a restaurant. And i get some some fresh rolls in ladder up with butter and then i end the meal with a brownie mode. Which do i enjoy more. Which is more memorable. I might even guess. I guess in that sense. They're not a snack because they're part of a whole contained meal. Sure sure and this is the snack. It that might not be the context. In which i see what you can't analyze it that way more often than not i would go for for bread and butter. If there's fresh bread there i'm going for it. Well i think we got just about everything on here but we would have got the championship. Bright bread and butter was the winner of the snack at erat rightful king. For sure you can't argue against it. It's very difficult to please anybody. And you know who else is a crowd pleaser us. Yes certainly would you like to percent to please the crowd with a review. I'll do it. I will do it. I have yeah. I have a review for the northwestern medicine field. It is a minor league baseball field. Arnaud maybe forty forty five minutes south of me where the kane county cougars play. They're one of the minor league teams one of the teams that didn't get axed by moby. They're still hanging around. Which is great. I love minor league baseball so unique so just just different game. You never know when you're gonna see a future superstar you've got guys from all over the world competing in and fighting for jobs in position giving it their all really coming into themselves. As professional baseball players not to mention so cheap are so much more affordable than animal game Support your local minor league team people. Yeah they are part of their community Kyle swatter formerly of cubs. Did play for the kane county. Cougars saw like eight. Leila that guy making it a little bit. Yeah yeah he gets to go go from suburban chicago land and then go watch him in chicago. That's cool anyway. What's cool is christopher co sims review google review he writes. I enjoy this ballpark. The batboys boys really have no idea what they're doing but they have fun as for everything else abysmal. When you see a batboy you think. Oh i bet. He wishes he was a ball boy. They all do watching. The cougars is great. It's just that the bat boys love seeds in their mouth. I don't get why they're so into eating seeds but they love them especially the dark barbecue ones space space space space smiley face five stars. I was just thinking like they're longer. This review goes the creepy yet but he really put a career show estimation point on it. Holy cow dude. That adeline some strange things in this review One which we can't look is that chris doesn't know what abysmal means apparently for us. That's a. That's a big strike in marauder action. But yeah i questioned. Why chris going to the games and when he's really watching if he knows that they are enjoying he's either got a great seat or he is looking at these bad boys through binoculars and usually at this level batboys are athletes themselves and could be college. Kids probably most definitely some. I'm hoping you know fingers crossed that it's not. Yeah but on the other hand. Why are you looking at them. When there's some world class athlete but performing right in front of you right yeah at that stage. You know these. These young athletes are going to show off a bit. They're going to hire. you'll have fun. Some young birds not too young. But rather please for the love of god to young earls this one got even creamier. Yeah i'm giving the benefit of the doubt to the reviewer for my own podcasts sanity. you know what. I mean out out out out if if these are these are minors who are doing the bad boy duties at this game which is not a question. We have to cancel the podcast. I think while we just have to call the police on this guy right. But i'm so panicked. That's the sort of conclusions. I'm jumping to get some tickets to the game. We'll figure out which guy is scoping out of the bat boys and ballboys. It will will go down to the ballboys guys eighteen. And if they're not we will go and kick the skies cool. I'm game for that so we'll make it a blog. It took pervert is assaulted. I random podcasters by to schlep. Lepe podcasters i. I actually got an email from the cougars. I'm on their email as they need people to sing the anthem. And i am to baiting whether to apply to try and make it. It's kind of awful. If i'm gonna make the national anthem of our country a promo for our our worst. They're bigger slime. Meg's going on a minor league baseball game. I think no reason to seriously right if this guy is here then i'm not the worst person apart and i know you'll give it your all even if you put a fund spin on it which i'm sure you do. I would like to add. Definitely pose yourself as local celebrity. I would totally take off to come down to record that for some content we would have to purchase tickets. You make that very clear but like you can get a free ticket. At least they're gonna buy concessions. It's five dollars folks in the area. Five dollars five dollars for after noon eating hot dogs drinking beers on a comfortable picnic like lawn. Yeah or you get a skit a seat with an actual seat live your life however you want to To move away from creepy chris. I do have one more review of the park by jeff wagner jeff rates. They lost so. I had an okay time. Beer is stupid expensive. But who doesn't know that already. The cougar didn't give me a hug. Even though i told him i didn't have any fleas for weeks now was a good time. Five out of seven would recommend four stars. He's got a joker here. We already see. This is the guy. I want to go to a ball game with not yes not a pedophile mcgee. Yeah this guy. Hey come on ozzie. gimme a hug. Ozzy is the name of the cougar. Mascots and i feel like mascots are sort of paid to take that jokes like that. They're professional ad that joke but like the butt of professional but of dad jokes. So you know that's just what kind of sign up for that. So i don't feel bad fall on that blade every time that's your job. We got a lot dad's in the crowd today bucky. But i wanna see your best stuff. I want when you see. I want your best cringes face palm size unless your best waving to get away your best saying no to these dads right these dads. They're sort of like you're the straight man you're straight man to these dad's awful jokes. That kids will love it. Sounds like a good job for me. The site beside his hot there. It is the athlete. I'm sitting here being that hot suit. I might look suit would be stopping by the second inning. Become like a mud man. So i gotta just gotta find minor league city. That has the mud man not out of the question mascot for those now not in this latest the one around i forget if around media colorado one but they have more for their mascot.

That's really good look for you. He's facing off with his his acts over child support. You know sitting in the neutral. I'd never have a there's never a lull in child support going Ron Hollywood. What's going on? He's going to war. Why do they have to say that? When maybe everyone wanted to take me to jail support recently Cindy J. but I told her son is thirty five? She's trying to get that shirt smoke on cigarettes and they're still living at home now. It's not to say then hey maybe she should be entitled to that. There are a lot of dirty euros that are still at home. It's a hard world with Sean Mama Linda. I'm coming on saying that smarter than all this extra child support and it's done yeah would living center extra the ground virgins when men winning house. We've got that baby mull over there still beyond the amount of money everything's good. She can't hint stand the fact that bit now to about Michael Straight. How about every man out your can't accept the back that men out here winning and you're trying to get every blue when you can tell them the he's the the the baby fall to get a new relationship oh good he arrived in court in Manhattan for a hearing on the issue he does have twin daughters from Abella? They are so cute let me show you a picture. There are a little older but it looks so cute didn't yes sources connected to Michael will say he is not behind on his child support payments to his ex wife Jean how how ever visit picture of hers assist Caucasian Flavor of course you know what I'm saying. I can have successful Black Man without thank you bye Lauren ash staple in industry. You're running. She running this look when we get excellent. That's why she got what started all of that mess however she is presumably seeking to increase monthly before she is because she agreed this man the standoff between Michael and Jean his second ex wife who they have twin daughters together Soviet is available now fifteen gene in her attorney Shannon Simpson from the law firm Cohen and Claire from UC Santa Sentence in Manila. I know I thought about that when I said Michael is obviously obviously doing well for himself following his lucrative hall of fame career in Nfl he's now hosting to good morning America and two other shows on ABC football. The Sunday morning said to the man is winning head seems likely Gina seeking increase based on his increased income. They married back in one thousand nine hundred nine but they split in two thousand six the divorce nast their divorce proceedings dragged on for months and the judge eventually awarded gene fifteen point three million and sat that Michael Child support for their daughters at eighteen thousand per month so we have a secret visit team million dollar pay three thousand seven seven six what she needed more pay eighteen thousand dollars of months is wrong with this woman yeah once they during wants the hearing began the judge cleared the court with the exception of Michael Gene their attorneys are sources say there was no ruling today which was yesterday on child support and the judge set the next court date for October. sources connected gene claimed she is indeed seeking back support one source described it as concern obligate se Han has failed to cover even though they're two thousand nine settlement calls for him to do so however sources in Michael's ward. Tell us suit gene filed a New York is not an effort to enforce unpaid support instead it is a suit to modify their prior settlement meaning increase monthly the payment exactly She said she filed the same suit last year North Carolina where she lives with girls but there's no decision yet states. She's filing in North Carolina on on a mission right now right well. What was his obligations? He didn't pay back in two thousand nine to give more money. I don't know the mayor gave fifteen million dollars. Cash payout seven makes it his chick. That's what you ended eighteen thousand dollars a month. That's what else does this woman when she listened comfortably in south killed the Whitney North Carolina comfortable was noted as because she sees this man a baby fog on television every nightmare admits the living nightmare but she's so selfish that she can get money already ran and an upper sure since two thousands of six. She's had a sample subpoenas. Probably what's the problem you go. You went on with your life. Have you get eighteen thousand dollars. A month. Got Twins you hit the bonus Yam one two one two punch which how support while you know when when you live a certain lifestyle and you know you need to keep going and what did you do for a living.

She needs to keep keep the same lifestyle she had them. They've been divorced since two thousand and six breath. She Got Terry Tower Yeah. That's what it is. She needs to get her coins as well. I think they've you sit there and reversing. Get Mad mad at me when you should share the same stories in reverse when a man is seeking child support from women yeah because and you hear stories like this and I like to say shame what every woman on earth shame. We'll all get your coins Gene Magli. I know how he's he's not doing nothing but he's out here winning here. We don't know what they do.

This is really this is what makes the show great they can get to us right. This is basically so it makes a great. The mother arrested at eleven. Oh daughter brings. THC edibles to school and shares them with classmates. Apparently or two was always what is the right in color until the end and eleven year old girl took edibles to school at a Saint Tammy's parish in Louisiana you she demarcated at home. A MOMMA's may go on is making the edibles at home and she gave into the classroom. She thought they were they were dummies. Yes and she passed his mom knows students and the mother was arrested in took the job of course happy. We'll be so day of stupid but why would you take it to class because she thought it was candy but then the mom powder. I didn't tell her mom just made them at In home in the girl took him to school and thought it was regular candy. The classmates with one of the classmates had to be hospitalized in lives and that's when they had to call the ambulance that's where they realized that Luger aboard the edibles school as she gets you the two or glass make ace Max. He probably would have gotten away with him. She just what the CBD wasn't right those data TAC and she probably would have got away with it anyway. The House How's Muller she was thirty thirty her name is Alexandria price is she admitted to making a product at home she was arrested book into the Tammy sank parish jail for possession session of schedule with the the CD of manufacturing of in a schedule and she got she got possession of drugs she got cruelty to juveniles of drug possession of paraphernalia as sales distribution and possession of ood of leading drug without prescription so mama might be facing some jail time and I'm sure if she don't have Chil- kids to take care of her family take care of kids. She goes to jail for a long time but shame on you mom for making draws at home and will you total that what it was and she won't take school and then you you still would have been good make my points.

She was probably making them for herself. Probably heard left them out. Her daughter probably took a couple of bags. Go to jail of course but I think if I was a judge on this one I'll give a passed ball fast because we now but they're not gonna like make all kinds of examples out of her. Throw the a book at her a lot of those. That's what I hate about charges to a lot of the same thing right like careless driving and reckless accolades driving to different you have opportunity to plead out talk to the lesser charge I feel bad about I feel bad for them and and then. How does the daughter field? You know you got your mom recipes but it all communication because it's not the first time I make gummy. She should have been tell her don't eat these. Don't taping the mouth residents. They sat all the power of million houses. She admitted that she made yeah. She loves to get high.

Everybody's so uh-huh yeah. It'd be Australia Bob Global Straight some rain who apart from other finger yeah I know it is. I don't know what I'm doing. There is a police shortage in Minneapolis and the law enforcement APPs is being felt in the city downtown district robbery is up almost fifty four percent in downtown Minneapolis Minneapolis compared within the last year and there has been a string of brutal assaults in the area. Several of them captured on video. There were more than fix thousand priority one nine nine. One one calls me those are robberies shooting in sexual assault on my there for which officer was immediately available to respond the pool of applicants. Police jobs is significantly smaller than it used used to be. The president of the Minnesota Police Officers Union said the city's police chief wants to add four hundred officers by two thousand twenty five but Minneapolis Mayor Hey or set there's just not money in the budget to this village so out is going on. Apple won't even be in two thousand twenty the where this is going to be district reducing that and that's just what they again. It's crazy. Put money in your budget to protect the people because they go rob the next week right the I don't know what's going on but see that just shows like we need police because if we didn't have the it would be anarchy it'd be a phrase the social media but then also you getting all even okay. Let's just say by what twenty twenty four hundred new officers that Abe's you just take it anybody Joe. These people have to have like mental check. They gotta go to camp or whatever learn all this stuff. You just want to sign right up. Four hundred people races right inside. Maybe maybe the real quick look the average salary. Indianapolis police assed John Salvi for them. I have a lot to page by about twenty five hundred dollars. I may not be enough to be please because city kvas police officer somewhere in Middle America Megan thirty five thousand dollars a year. Cj and some crimes committed. I've seen they asked him about. I'm not dealing with yeah yeah especially resting. Nobody yeah the end the way of money to light it is perdue do Pharma. This has been a big story they are which is the sackler family. They are could their creators of the SACKLER. It's been a while they start the family for the Minneapolis police his between fifty one in sixty nine career that's best well you try to and a high of four hundred and six thousand four hundred. They're the maker of the painkiller oxycontin and they have been been hit with lawsuits lawsuits for people that wrongful all data people getting like dated way over those when I mean I guess I guess because they said that they were pushing it and and not letting people know the highly addictive nature of this not only that to social racially motivated J White folks dying every five minutes of the day over this oxycontin wounded when the crack was out back in the day Sunday and I fell victim to smoke and cracking down the street it was no legislation out there to stop the drugs loves and STOP ORLANDO'S WANDA all wind up in jail and that has a part to play with this to Middle America. Why folks dropping dead by the second? So why would we go here. We go somebody crack deal well.

From the archives: Accelerationism: how a fringe philosophy predicted the future we live in podcast

"The guardian hi mandy back on murals of the piece the or battiston to the pieces of acceleration. Ism acceleration is amazing. mysterious tub which floats around on the internet which is floated around also income fashionable magazine's twenty thirty years. I i came across it as an idea in the nineties when it was something that was often mentioned by people who are making drama base records for very small labels in england and acceleration as as a set of only is set people about making modern life. Fostering foster about accepting speed martin life whether it's the temp of dance records whether it's the speed which capitalism operates and accepting that speed and hastening it to try and make a breakthrough almost to back to level of kind of consciousness on acceleration. Ism has had two strands is how to kinda right-wing strand wish celebrates capitalism and. There's a left wing strand which sees technology as a way to subvert capitalism. Celebration azam has fed people on the fall. Right like the philosopher nick land and also people on the left like the late martha who took his own life. If years ago he's one of the most influential thinkers on the left in britain of lost twenty thirty years a wide discovered. When i looked at the story of this idea and the people he spread it as as much as anything. It's abou how ideas can come to kinda of possess people on how they can talk about late. Into the night often intoxicated they can run it furiously back and forth tweet about them. And how can form a kind of cult which the walls around acceleration azam university of warwick in the nine hundred ninety s and that cult then ultimately fell apart fragmented on refugees from it a now scattered around nick. Land lives in shanghai and writes about the glories of the chinese government others are in advertising the music industry Wanted to know what it was like become possessed by an idea and also whether this idea explains the muslim world better than any other ideas that have been around. And i suppose i found the journey kind of fascinating but also frightening and ultimately went into coin places acceleration as was quite an influence on members of the trump administration and in the fall right and also in a very different way on some of the people in the more aggressive and of kuban ism. So it's kind of an idea which has created radicals all over the world and my piece is really the story of these radicals and it's fascinating but i'd say you enter this world at your peril welcomed to the guardian long read showcasing the best long form journalism covering culture politics and new thinking for the text version of this and all our long reads go to the guardian dot com for slash mom. We'd acceleration ism. How a fringe. Philosophy predicted the future. We live in. The world is changing at dizzying speed. But for something not fast enough is acceleration ism a dangerous idea or does it speak to our troubled times by andy beckett half a century ago in the great hippie year of nineteen sixty seven an acclaimed young american science fiction writer. Roger salani published his third novel in many ways. Lord of light was of its time. Shaggy with imported hindu methology and cosmic dialogue yet. There were also glimpse of something more forward-looking in political one plot strand concerned a group of revolutionaries who wanted to take their society to a higher level by suddenly transforming its attitude to technology salani called them. The acceleration insists he in. The book are largely forgotten now. But as the more enduring sifi. Novelist j g ballard said in nineteen seventy one what the writers of modern science fiction invent day. You and i will do tomorrow. Over the past five decades and especially over the past few years much of the world has got faster working patterns political cycles everyday technologies communication habits and devices the redevelopment of cities the acquisition and disposal of possessions all of these have accelerated meanwhile over the same half-century almost entirely unnoticed by the media or mainstream academia acceleration. Ism has gradually solidified from the fictional device into an actual intellectual movement. A new way of thinking about the contemporary world and its potential. Acceleration exists argue that technology particularly computer technology and capitalism titular lead. The most aggressive global variety should be massively sped up and intensified. Either because this is the best way forward for humanity or because there is no alternative accelerations favor automation they favor the further merging of the digital and the human. They often favored the deregulation of business and drastically scaled back government. They believe that people should stop deluding themselves. Economic and technological progress can be controlled. They often believe that. Social and political upheaval has value in itself. Acceleration therefore goes against conservatism traditional socialism. Social democracy environmentalism protectionism populism nationalism localism. And all the other ideologists that have sought to moderate or reverse the already hugely disruptive seemingly runaway pace of change in the modern world. Acceleration ism is a political heresy. Right robin mci and armand avanessian. In their introduction to hashtag accelerate the accelerations reader sometimes baffling sometimes exhilarating book published in twenty fourteen which remains the only proper guide to the movement in existence like other harasses acceleration. Ism has had generations of adherence declared or otherwise passing. It's ideas onto each other. Refining summoned renouncing others communicating with each other in the private language coalescing around dominant figures competing to make the faiths next breakthrough splitting into factions. Burning out there are or have been. Acceleration ists from the united states. Canada britain germany italy and france. The movement has produced books. Essays journals manifestos blogs social media battles and cryptic almost unclassifiable. Communiques combining dystopia fiction with a dizzying range of political cultural and economic theory. Occasionally acceleration ists have held teaching posts at universities. They have held sporadic public gatherings in order to think out loud argue and acquire converts a few recorded fragments of these can be found on youtube. Dim footage of intense young people talking mesmeric about the future often with electronic music and abstract. Visuals churning in the background to sometimes baffled audiences in badly lit lecture rooms at any one time the have probably only been a few dozen acceleration. It's in the world. The label has only been in regular use since twenty ten. When it was borrowed from zelezny's novel by benjamin noise a strong critic of the movement yet for decades longer than more orthodox contemporary thinkers acceleration. It's have been focused on many. At the central questions of the late twentieth and early twenty first centuries the rise of china the rise of artificial intelligence what it means to be human in an era of addictive intrusive electronic devices the seemingly uncontrollable flows of global markets the power of capitalism as a network of desires the increasingly blurred boundary between the imagery and the factual the resetting of our minds and bodies bhai ever faster music and films and the complicity revulsion excitement. So many of us feel about the speed of modern life. We all live in an operating system set up by the accelerating triad war capitalism and emergent. Ai says steve goodman a british acceleration. Est who is even smuggled itself self-consciously dramatic ideas into dance music. Viren acclaimed record label. Hyper dub like it or not. Argue stephen vero an american observer of acceleration ism in his twenty fifteen book on the movement. No speed limit. We are ole acceleration. It's now celebrating. Speed and technology has its risks a century ago. The writers and artists of the italian futurist movement fell in love with the machines of the industrial era and their apparent ability to invigorate society. Many futurists followed this fascination into warmongering and fascism. Well some futurist works are still admired. The movements reputation has never recovered one of the central figures of acceleration. Ism is the british philosopher. Nick land who taught at warwick university in the nineteen nineties and then abruptly left academia philosophers of visitors he wrote in nineteen ninety-two they have the precise and reptilian. Intelligent shared by all who experiment with living things in hamilton grump. Who is one of land. students remembers. There was always a tendency in all of us to bait the liberal. A nick was the best at it. Since warrick land has published prolifically on the internet. Not always under his own name about the supposed obsolescence of western democracy. He has also written approvingly about human biodiversity and capitalistic human sorting pseudoscientific idea currently popular on the far right. That different races naturally fed differently in the modern world and about the supposedly inevitable disintegration of the human species when artificial intelligence improves sufficiently other. Acceleration exists now distance themselves from land grant. He teaches philosophy at the university of the west of england says of him. I try not to read his stuff. Phuc in the acceleration. Est movement are embarrassed. They think he's sounding like a thug. Anyone who's an acceleration est. His reflective does think how far is too far but then again even asking that question is the opposite of acceleration ism. Acceleration is not about restraint. Even it's critic. Benjamin noise concedes that the movement has an allure accelerate is a sexy word. He says not a common thing in philosophy the determinedly transgressive artists jake and dinos chapman associates of the movement and standing land collaborators. One of their friends. It grotesque paintings is on the cover of his collected. Writings fanged new minor published in twenty eleven which contains some of acceleration. 'isms most darkly fascinating passages earlier this year secondhand copies of the paperback which is now being reprinted. Were on sale on amazon. For one hundred. Eighty pounds in our politically phibro times. The impatient intemperate possibly revolutionary ideas of acceleration feel relevant or at least intriguing as never before noise says. Acceleration is always seemed to have an answer if capitalism is going fast they say it needs to go faster if capitalism hits a bump in the road and slows down as it has since the two thousand eight financial crisis they say it needs to be kickstarted. The disruptive us election campaign and manic presidency of donald trump and his ultra-capitalist anti-government policies have been seen by an increasing number of observers. Some alarmed some delighted as the first mainstream manifestation of an acceleration is politics in recent years. Noise has noticed. Acceleration est ideas resonating and being circulated everywhere from pro technology. Parts of the british left to wealthy libertarian and far right circles in america on old write blogs land in particular has become a name to conjure with commentators have excitedly noted the connections between some of his ideas. And the thinking of both the libertarian. Silicon valley billionaire. Peter the'll and trump's iconoclastic strategist steve bannon in. Silicon valley says fred turn a- a- leading historian of america's digital industries acceleration ism is part of the whole movement which is saying we don't need conventional politics anymore we can get rid of left and right if we just get technology right. Acceleration is fits with how electronic devices a marketed. The promise that finally they will help us leave the material world all the mess of the physical far behind turner the appeal of acceleration. Ism is as much ancient as modern. They are speaking in a millenarian idiom. Promising that a vague universal changes close at hand noise warns that the acceleration is trying to claim the future in some ways call. Mocks was the first acceleration est. His communist manifesto of eighteen. Forty eight was as much all struck as a pooled by capitalism with its constant revolutionizing of production and uninterrupted disturbance civil social conditions. He saw an evermore frantic capitalism as the essential prelude to the moment when the ordinary citizen is at last compelled to face his real conditions of life and start a revolution yet. It was in france in the late. Nineteen sixties that acceleration. Est ideas were first. Developed in a sustained way shaken by the failure of the left wing revolt of nineteen sixty eight and by the seemingly unending postwar economic boom in the west some french marxist decided that a new response to capitalism was needed in one thousand nine hundred ninety two the philosopher gil de lose and the psychoanalyst felix guitar ari published anti edith's. It was a restless sprawling appealingly ambiguous book which suggested that rather than simply oppose capitalism the left should acknowledges ability to liberate as well as oppress people and should seek to strengthen these anarchic tendencies to go still further in the movement of the market to accelerate the process two years later. Another disillusioned french marxist. Jean francois soi todd extended the argument even more provocatively. His nineteen seventy-four book libido economy declared that even the oppressive aspects of capitalism were enjoyed by those whose lives the system reordered and accelerated. I'm besides there was no alternative. The system of capital is when all said and done natural. In france. Both books were controversial. Leotard eventually disowned libido economy as his evil book and moved on to other subjects to lose guitar warned in the next book a thousand plateaus which was published in one thousand eighty as relatively benign postwar. Capitalism was being swept away by the wilder harsha version of the thatcher. Reagan-era that too much capitalist acceleration could suck society into black holes of fascism a nearly them yet. In britain anti oedipus and lebron lakhani acquired a different status like much of post war. French philosophy for decades. They were ignored by the academic mainstream as to foreign in all senses. And we're not even translated into english until nineteen eighty three and nineteen ninety-three respectively but for tiny number british philosophers. The two books were a revelation in hamilton groomed. I came across the beedon lakhani as a master student at work in the early nineties. I couldn't believe it for a book by marksist to say there's no way out of this meaning capitalism and that we're all tiny pieces of engineered desire that slot into a huge system. That's a i. As far as i know. Grant got hooked. Instead of writing his dissertation he spent an obsessive six months producing the first english translation. Such exploratory philosophy. Projects were tolerated at work. In a way there were not at other british universities where could been founded in the nineteen sixties as a university that would experiment and engage with the contemporary world by the nineteen nineties. It slightly isolated out of town. Campus of breeze block towers and ziggurats looked worn rather than futuristic. But it's original. Ethos lived on in some departments such as philosophy where studying avangard french writers was. The norm at the center of this activity was a new young lecturer in the department. Nick land land was a slight fragile looking man with an iron gays a soft but compelling voice an air of startling intellectual confidence lots of people clever says grant. But i've never witnessed anyone who could so forensically destroy a thesis robin mci who also became one of land students remembers. Nick was always ready to say. Don't bother reading that. But he had read it all by the early nineties land had distilled his reading which included delusion guitar and leo taught into a set of ideas and writing style that to his students at least with visionary and thrillingly dangerous wrote in nineteen ninety two that capitalism had never been properly unleashed but instead had always been held back by politics. The last great sentimental indulgence of mankind. He dismissed europe. As a sclerotic increasingly marginal place the racial trashcan of asia and he saw civilization everywhere accelerating towards an apocalypse disorder must increase. Any human organization is a mere detore in the inexorable death flow land gave strange the to collectors clambering over chaz as he spoke or sitting hunched over rocking. Back and forth. He'll say spiced his pronouncements with black humor he would tell lecture audiences. I work in the field of the collapse of western civilization studies. The quarter of a century on some former warwick philosophy students still talk about him with war. Robin mci says. I think he's one of the most important philosophies of the last fifty years but for a would-be guide to the future. Land was in some ways quite old fashioned until the late nineties. He used an ancient green screen amstrad computer and his initial warwick writings far more references to eighteenth and nineteenth century. Philosophers friedrich nietzsche was a fixation then to contemporary thinkers or culture the warwick version of acceleration. Ism did not crystallize fully until other radicals arrived in the philosophy department in the mid nineties. Sadie plant was one of them. A former birmingham university lecturer in cultural studies. The study of modern popular culture mark fisher. A former student of has at birmingham was another income. Ah he was championed intense. While she was warm and approachable for a time in the early nineties she in land were partners like land plant and fisher had both read the french acceleration. It's and were increasingly hostile to the whole they felt traditional. Left-wing and liberal ideas had don't british humanities departments and on the world beyond unlike land plant and fisher tacna files. She has an early apple computer. He was an early mobile phone. User computers pursue accelerating exponential pods proliferating. Miniaturizing stringing themselves together wrote plant in zeros and ones a caffeinated. Nineteen ninety-seven book about the development of computing plant and fisher were also committed. Fans of the nineties increasingly kinetic dance music and action films which they saw as popular art forms that imported the possibilities of the new digital era with the internet becoming part of everyday life for the first time and capitalism seemingly triumphant after the collapse of communism in one thousand nine hundred nine a belief that the future would be almost entirely shaped by computers and globalization the accelerated movement of the market that delusion guitar had called for two decades earlier spread across british and american academia and politics during the ninety s. The warrick acceleration. It's were in the vanguard yet. There were two different visions of the future in the us confident rainbow magazines. Such as wired promoted. What have become known. As the californian ideology the optimistic claim that human potential could be unlocked everywhere by digital technology. In britain this optimism influence new labor warrick. However the prophecies were darker one of our motives says plant was precisely to undermine the cheery utopianism the nineties. Much of which seemed very conservative. An old fashioned mail desire for salvation through gadgets. In her view we wanted a more open convoluted complicated world nas shiny new order the warrior acceleration. Est were also influenced by their environment. Britain in the nineties felt cramped grey. Dilapidated says mci. We saw capitalism and technology these intense forces that were trying to take over a decrepit body to observe the process and help hasten it in one thousand nine hundred five plant fisher land mci and two dozen other work students and academics created a radical new institution the cybernetic culture research unit. C. are you. It would become one of the most mythologised groups in recent bush intellectual history. The guardian the guardian the cdc on you existed as a fully functional entity for less than five years for some of that time it was based in a single office in the tight corridors the word philosophy department of which it was an unofficial part later. The unit's headquarters was a rented room in the georgia town center of nearby leamington spa above a branch of the body shop for decades tantalising references to the c. You have flitted across political and cultural website music and art journals and the more cerebral parts of the style press. there are groups of students in their twenties. Who reenact our practices says robin mci since two thousand and seven his run a respected philosophy publishing house. back with limited editions of old. Ccr you publications and new collections of you. Writings prominent among its products. The cu was image conscious from the start. Its name was deliberately hard. Edged with a hint of the military or the robotic especially once its members began writing and referring to themselves collectively without the definite article as cr you in nine hundred ninety nine it summarized its history to sympathetic music journalist simon reynolds in the terse disembodied style the trademark. Cca you triggers itself from october. Nineteen ninety-five when it uses sadie plant as a screen and warwick university as temperate habitat ccu feeds on graduate students plus malfunctioning academic nick land plus independent researchers former c. c. i. u. members still use its language and a fiercely attached to the idea that it became kind of group. Mind land me in an email. Ccr you was an entity irreducible to the agendas or biographies of its component sub agencies. Otta submission to the entity was key. These days in hamilton grant is an affable middle-age. Professor who wears a waistcoat with a pen in the top pocket it when i asked him to describe the. Cc are you. He said with sudden intensity. We made up an arrow. There was almost no disharmony. There was no leisure. We tried not to be apart from each other. No one dead. Let the side down when everyone is keeping up with everyone else. The collective element increased is speed. The ccr you gang formed reading groups and set up conferences and journals. They squeezed into the narrow. Ccr room in the philosophy department and gave each other impromptu seminars. Mci remember steve goodman a. c. c. r. u. member who was particularly interested in military technology. How it was transforming civilian life drawing yin and yang on the blackboard and then talking about helicopters it wasn't academic point-scoring that was exactly what we all got heartily sick of before the cca argue instead it was a buildup of shed. References grant explained something would be introduced into the group. Neuromancer william gibson's nine thousand nine hundred four novel about the internet and artificial intelligence got into the philosophy department and it went viral. You'd find worn out paperbacks all over the common room land and plants offices in the department also became. Cc i hubs. They were generous with the time said grant and he had good drugs skunk cannabis although it could be grim going in there once. He started living in his office. There'll be a tower of pot noodles and underwear drying on the radiator which he'd washed in the star lose the work campus stayed open late when the philosophy department shut for the night. The c. i. You'd come to the student. Union bar across the road where land would pay for the drinks and then to each other's houses where the group mind would continue its labors. It was like andy. Warhol's factory said grunt work and production all the time in nineteen ninety-six the you listed its interests as cinema complexity currences dance music e cash encryption feminism fiction images inorganic life jungle markets matrices micro -biotics multimedia networks numbers perception replication sex simulation sound telecommunications textiles texts trade video virtuality war today many of these topics the mainstream media and political fixations two decades ago says grant. We felt we were the only people on the planet who were taking all this stuff seriously. The cca aim was to meld their preoccupations into a groundbreaking infinitely flexible intellectual alloy. Like the shape shifting cyborg in the nineteen ninety one film. Terminator two a favourite reference point. Which would somehow some up both the present and the future the main results of the c. Us frantic promiscuous research was a conveyor belt of cryptic articles crammed with invented terms sometimes speculative to the point of being fiction a typical piece from nineteen ninety-six swarm machines included a section on jungle then the most intense strain of electric don't music jungle functions as a particle accelerator seismic base frequencies engineering a cellular drone which immerses the body rewind reload conventional time into silicon lips of speed. It's not just music jungle. Is the abstract diagram of planetary inhuman becoming the warrick acceleration. Est saw themselves as participants not traditional academic observers. They bought jungle. Records went to clubs and organiz. Dj's to play eclectic public conferences which they held at university to publicize acceleration est ideas and attract like minds. Grant remembers these gatherings staged one thousand nine hundred four nine hundred ninety five and nineteen ninety-six under the name virtual futures as attracting every kind of nerd under the sun science fiction fans natural scientists political scientists philosophers from other universities but also cultural trend spotters someone from the fashion magazine. The face came to the first one like cc. Praised the conferences could be challenging for non initiates. Virtual futures ninety-six was advertised as an anti disciplinary event and conference in the post humanities. One session involve nick land lying on the ground cracking into a mike recalls robin mci while mci played jungle records in the background. Some people were really appalled by it. They wanted to stand talk. One person in the audience stood up and said some of us are still marxist you and walked out even inside the permissive work philosophy department. The cc us evermore blatant disdain. For standard academic practice became an issue. Ray breezy watched it happen now. An internationally known philosopher at the american university in beirut between nineteen ninety five and two thousand and one. He was a part time mature student at work. I was interested in the c. You but skeptical bracy says. I was older than most of them. The cr you felt. They were plunging into something bigger than academia and they did put their finger on a lot of things that had started to happen in the world but their work was also frustrating. They would cheerfully acknowledge the thinness of their research. It's not about knowledge yet if thinking is just connecting things. of course. It's exciting like taking amphetamines. The thinking is also about disconnecting. Things bracy says that the ccr you became a very divisive presence in the philosophy department. Most of the department really hated and despised nick and that hatred extended to his students. They're increasingly blunt bureaucratic disputes about us research and how if at all it should be externally regulated and assessed in one thousand nine hundred seven. Plant resigned from the university the charge personal political and philosophical dynamics at the c. c. You were irresistible too many. But i felt stifled and had to get out. She told me she became a full time. Writer and for a few years was the british is favourite digital academic an it go for the twenty first century as the independent breathlessly built her in october. Nineteen ninety-seven in one thousand. Nine hundred eight land resigned from warwick to he and half a dozen. Ccr members withdrew to the room above the leamington. Spa bodyshop there. They drifted from acceleration. Ism into a vortex of more old-fashioned satiric ideas drawn from the account numerology the fathomless novels of the american horror writer. Hp lovecraft and the life of the english mystic alice to crowley who had been born in leamington in a cavernous terraced house which several ccr members moved into the are. You became quays cultish quiz. I religious says mci. I left before it descended into sheer madness. Two of the units key tech's had always been the joseph conrad novel heart of darkness and its film adaptation apocalypse. Now which made collecting followers and withdrawing from the world and from conventional summit seem lethally glamorous in that top floor room land and his students drew coat diagrams on the walls grunt says a punishing regime move too much thinking and drinking drove several members into mental and physical crisis. Land himself after what he later described as perhaps a year fanatical abuse of the sacred substance amphetamine and prolonged artificial insomnia. Devoted to futile writing. Practices suffered a breakdown in the early two thousands and disappeared from public view. The cca you just vanished says brazier and a lot of people not including me thought. Good riddance half a dozen years later at the university of western ontario in canada. A mild-mannered political science master student. Nick sonic began reading british blog about pop culture and politics called k. punk k. Punk had been going since two thousand and three and had acquired a cult following among academics music critics for its unselfconsciously roaming from records and tv shows to recent british history and french philosophy k. Punk was written by mark. Fisher formerly of the cc argue the blog retain some work traits such as quitting reverently from delusion guitar but it gradually shed the ccr use aggressive rhetoric and pro capitalist politics for more forgiving more left-leaning tecoma density fisher increasingly felt that capitalism was a disappointment to acceleration assists with its cautious entrenched corporations and endless cycles of essentially the same product. But he was also impatient with the left which he thought was ignoring new technology when it should have been exploiting it senate agreed. He and fisher became friends. The two thousand and eight financial crisis and the left's ineffectual rather old fashioned response to it. Such as the short lived street protests of the occupy movement further convinced sirnak that an updated radical politics was needed in two thousand thirteen. He and a young british political theorist alex williams coach a manifesto for an acceleration est politics capitalism has begun to constrain the productive forces of technology. They wrote all version of acceleration. Ism is the basic belief that these capacities can and should be let loose re purposed towards common ends towards an alternative modernity. What that alternative modernity might be was barely seductively sketched out with fleeting references to reduced working hours to technology being used to reduce social conflict rather than it and to humanity moving beyond the limitations of the earth and our own immediate bodily forms on politics and philosophy blogs from britain to the us and italy the notion spread that sirnak and williams had founded a new political philosophy left acceleration ism two years later in twenty fifteen expanded the manifesto into a slightly more concrete book inventing the future. It argued for an economy based as far as possible on automation with the jobs. Working hours and wages lost replaced by universal basic income. The book attracted more attention than a speculative left-wing work had for years with interest and praise from intellectually curious leftists such as the labor mp john crisis and the authors paul mason and mike davis yet the actual word acceleration. Ism did not appear in the book. We've given up on the tom now. Sonic told me it's been to popularized and mean don't just want everything to go faster anyway. Arguing for a shorter working week is arguing for people's lives to slow down. The twenty thirteen manifesto had mentioned lands earlier version of acceleration ism in passing describing it as acute and hypnotize ing but also myopic and confused. When sonic and i met appropriately. He chose a futuristic public. Space a cafe in the angular new extension to take martin. I asked how he regarded land in the cr. Us work now. Lamb stuff is a valid reading of delusion guitar. He began politely but the in humanism of it all. And i'm not sure if we're turning to the text is not interesting. All that word play using the word cyber seems very nineties. I always land what he thought of left. Acceleration ism the notion that self-propelling technology is separable from capitalism he said is a deep theoretical era off his breakdown land left britain. He moved to taiwan early in the new millennium. He told me then to shanghai a couple of years later he still lives there now. Life is an outside. it was a relief. China was also thrilling. In two thousand and four article for the shanghai star an english language paper he described the modern chinese fusion of marxism and capitalism as the greatest political engine of social and economic development. The world has ever known at warwick he and the c. c. You had often written excitedly but little actual detail about what they called neo. China once lived there. Land told me. He realized that to a massive degree. China was already an of society fixated by the future and changing its speed presented with a sweeping projects of the chinese state. His previous libertarian contempt for the capabilities of government fellow way back in less revolutionary britain lands chinese journalism a strange amalgam of pro government propaganda. Pr hyperbole and wild. Cci you imagery at world expo. Twenty ten shanghai parallel tracks melt together into the largest discrete event in world history went either unnoticed or pointedly ignored during the two thousands and early twenty tens among the steadily rising number of people with an interest in acceleration. Ism there was a feeling that land had taken the philosophy in inappropriate directions. Other members of the warwick diaspora made less conventional accommodations with the modern world. Suzanne livingston a former cc. are you member. Joined the international branding agency wolff olins and used phd work. She had done at work on robotics and artificial intelligence to help technology corporations. Such as sony and ericsson steve goodman's setup the electronic music label hyper dub in two thousand and four and began. Releasing skeletal ominous dub step records by the did south london artist burial among others sometimes with acceleration est messages deep within. It's like an onion he says are in sa- welcome to peel off as many as they want. Some will make their is water. So we don't force feed between two thousand two and two thousand. Fourteen goodman also lectured in music culture at the university of east london which along with goldsmiths college in south. London is a frequent employ former members. The warwick lot is still a group of friends. Devoted and loyal to each other says a former u. e. l. colleague of goodman's. That's the good way of putting it. The other way is to say that the cc are you. Coping never stopped whether british acceleration ism is a cultural. Not robin mci is at the center of it. Besides publishing its key texts through urban omic. He's kept in touch with most of his former comrades even land who is known and often defended for twenty five years but mci is less unsettling presence. Forty three now. He's lived for decade in a plane village. In in cornwall. He met me at the nearest station wearing severe black shirt and playing complicated techno on his car stereo with one of his children in the back in the living room of his half renovated cottage blinds down against the lovely spring day mci talked about acceleration ism and its serpentine history for hours. Smoking throughout an old. Ccr you habit and blinking slowly between his long sentences so deliberately regularly that you could see him thinking near the end he said acceleration. Ism is a machine for countering pessimism in considering untapped possibilities you can feel less gloomy about the present mccain said he experienced periods of depression his close friend mark fisher who also had depression took his own life. This january towards the end of his life fisher was increasingly preoccupied. By the i did. Britain was not heading towards some great leap forward but stasis for all the fanaticism of modern life in some ways even the most developed country still live in the opposite of accelerated times the same party seemingly perpetually empower the same sluggish capitalism still struggling for momentum decade after the financial crisis the same yearnings for the good old days expressed by elderly brexit voters and nostalgic leftists alike. Even the thinking of the arch acceleration. Est nick land who is fifty five now may be slowing down. Since two thousand thirteen. He has become a guru for the us based far right movement neo reaction or an rx as it often calls itself near reactionaries. Believe in the replacement of modern nation states democracy and government bureaucracies by authoritarian city states which are near action blogs sound as much like idealized medieval kingdoms. They do modern clave. Such as singapore in two thousand thirteen landreau too long online essay about the movement titled with typical theatricality. The dark enlightenment which has become widely seen as one of near reactions. Founding documents land argues now that near reaction like trump and brexit is something that acceleration is should support in order to hasten the end of the status quo yet the analyst of acceleration ism. Ray breezy is unconvinced. Nick land has gone from arguing. Politics is dead twenty years ago to this completely old-fashioned standard reactionary stuff near action has faith in technology and following in silicon valley. But in other ways it seems a backward-looking coors for acceleration it's to ally themselves with without a dynamic capitalism to feed off as delusion guitar had in the early seventies and the word philosophies had in the ninety s it may be the acceleration ism just racist blind alleys in his twenty fourteen book about the movement malign velocities benjamin noise accuses it of offering full solutions to current technological economic dilemmas with acceleration. Azam he writes a breakthrough into a better future is always promised and always just out of reach in. Nineteen seventy the american writer. Alvin toffler an exponent of acceleration.

Yeah I'm just trying to take over two thousand nineteen. Yeah I'm I mean you have you run is a good thing you said you like Wu. Tang 'cause we're saying is is like squad but everyone is still doing five from when I saw you August exactly unlike not even tank man. I'll take it back to boot camp. Click 'cause like 'cause like even boys buckshot. The I like helter skelter all boys you know what I mean like. That's what I was brought up on and like when you do the squad everybody's while sometimes I don't don't ever last good. I mean it's easy for you to break off if you're like that you know what I mean. 'cause hates on that if you're a group have one frontman and of course you going to slip off anybody somewhere. Oh Look Beh- you left us. Not When you've got a group. The all solo artists in the group does not. There's no hate because everybody can do solo. Oh projects and it can do a group project. So how how. Lonzo grouping together is in Nain photograph Like why are squad. I just me just call him the easing peninsula Tied just BEC- noise right we Did just doing their own thing. They've been together for like Just like homes from like the dirt you know what I mean. I snowfield from the dirt to so it says. Hey the which I'd take him under my wing and thus expand make crazy team and uh-huh was their last project. Woke on Swat Actually delays like. I saw the the the next project is. I can't even say First Project that I worked on was drippy but the next project. I'm just going to produce the whole project. 'cause they did all their own production on like the actual can with Right they did all their production. I just don't like revised Master to psalms but droopy I actually reproduced at some of the Charlotte to follow so WHO's in school it got PD gate the Katie got got wrong fodder and there's a couple of other follows? I do not here with us today. So right right gag we we. We tried to break it down with a five hundred right we. We was like the only break floor. I saw good also the other MRS on white boy. I'm not sure if he's working today by the guy who never seen him. You always see on shows like sometimes like software side like the follow has got more time on hand so so so you think What's discover especially walking artists? There's a level of Commitment and some people. We'll have that some people don't do you pick up on that easily on. I'm big on commitment. A second one on one thing like these guys like like. I said I knew them for like a long time. Like most of them by like soon as I hollered at them and I said hey go. Just don't waste my time looking at. I mean like I think I wasted their time. They they waste my time because every time that is from their commitment is is is a one you know what I mean right along with them communication right so you gotTa have those commitment like me. I'm committed so if I do if I say I'm GONNA do. I'll do it if I say. Hey do today unlike to the week but at Saint Todd I I get it done. They'll just exaggerating a little bit by the vice. Say Hey oh we need this and this is our dateline. But I've been pushing for two weeks I won't have done dunwoody Because I told them I had ep before the show even though I will probably a week before that you will and like are projects that were dropping droppin White boy. I mean it's going to have to be for tomorrow that well. Sorry not tomorrow later on today so I mean it's just commitment is number one. Yeah I mean there's no point great because There's only so much time you have in a day and it's Kahad Macoyo time and walk in. What is quote and doing Solo Project? How do you handle sign whether or not there? Because in a more focused I I just sometimes I just sent my bedroom knowledgeable audiotape dope. I'm on it right there but like I can do it whenever I want. It comes in 'cause I live in the studio these guys can't so I gotta give them my time before I before I give myself my time but I always have my time. And what's unlike advantage to having a home studio As perfect because like you cannot do the tracks and you can always get someone like me i. I'm I think master but I can also see master too. So that's just like engines made by two Grammy nomination on nominees. They put an engine on the Internet so that we can mass songs inside the engine so it makes your stuff lock clear to so I can go and do that or you can. Just get another engineer. You know what I mean and then be like hey can clean sop by really do it all myself so I'm not really cool Um mhm whatever some writing process. Do you get to beat before the sun did Hunter. That depends on what you like. At that time it depends on what your China Senate like who trying to trying to catch areas of named it depends on how to be talks to like. We always talk to me so so Whatever that boot sound like it said so you know what I mean? It could be talking with a girl one day one day could be taught to trap or the next time talking to both GonNa move something that you went through a depends on how you listen to that. You know what I mean. 'cause it's like having a conversation precision. Now let's be why you might talk to the next minute and then there's a different type of Everybody has their own saw or their own. You know the way that they listened to and one thing I felt from you on the show where met these days. You don't really hear what people are seen and it was a difference when here you guys you guys were telling telling his story out of fooling. It's like it's a movie when you guys rob. Why what like I say you want to bring back? How was what is he's everybody's going through their own struggle right? I mean these guys they just moon to just say what they WANNA say like. I've been there. I can related like some of the stuff that they say but at the same time it's like what we say to you on Reflect on them as being like older brother to younger brother gaming whatever ever they say you don't listen to them but if they're saying something wrong you're going to write by should everybody got the story We knew spit story then next a story than the next one is just like a good book. A bunch of short stories and right and those are the best ones. So I don't know I just find that like everybody route creative equally so Do you ever have a situation where someone comes to walk with you and you decided not to walk within no never never know. Wow why not because I always know what I want. Or they know what they want to like. People that are creative. You can't let clash because creativity claiming as being real honest like And I mean and I'm a good guy I could switch to anyone stop type of style so they have ideas. Okay sound over the Mind Olive. Yeah I'll give you credit just like a a sounding guys earlier. J. T. M. G. number came from me even know my name is Jake Thompson. I'm Jay Thompson. Musical never came from it. Came from the guy. That's not here. Why for right in the early? So these things take you go into new forget. It's not technically don't clash. It can just be us together. Cool talking about. Gt N. G. as a foundation. You have not foundation so to TMZ AM. Jesus is just the name but why is what. What's inside of it? This is what it is. I mean it's like a group of follows just just trying to make music. Yeah Everybody Solo Film saying but you group your squad or clique not gang like that. I mean which is this. We all want to go. Solo could go so. JT 'em Jesus Being one person but at the same time the group yeah. How long has the group GTE Jake Walk I'd say like three half years because like me I really wasn't Jack. TMZ before white boy. I was just doing my own thing. I would like Vancouver City. They mean just Venezuela's The venoms spits squad. You know what I mean. We were like just different things like just trying to find what would be the best for that but to stay Thompson music group so that is so like you you do. Having seen in the name of the group does not make you Kinda front man. No no no no. I'm never frontman and I'm Jay Thompson just me I do. You know what I mean. When described as their thing squad whiteboard that assistant whose wife with yeah I mean and if like any other group or any other person company we needed something it'd be them you know what I mean? I'm just the foundation like I said I just do the production. That's it just it. is any instrument. You rely alight when he comes to be. Well I like acoustics reads like those one second. We like motivated living like GotTa dig inside of myself in politico actually thinkable some do trapping It's a beep I'll K.. Okay you can tell anything to it by if you get like something. That's what like a Piano Leon. on a case like this only performed on Thursday. I like this cool. Who Piano be on Badian them? Whoa those those tracks have just those new tracks? There's something different. I still got like. Eight ten twenty two coming out and that's like more of does does to actual full album cool that like more of like pianos and like guitars. Awesome Suffolk that Actually Raw hip-hop. I'm rapping on these other albums hip hop could say it's hip hop. Just don't still and do you guys walk music videos What's what's the plan for the garbage slacking? I can. Yeah I can't be I would like slack so bad like I find that like I'm so caught up in China like get chosen. I'm just trying to promote shows like this year and like trying to make music or just put it out that I wasn't even really focused on the visual uh-huh and I should be more like figuring out J. G. G. that guy like he's phenomenal for that. I swear to God. He got like twenty two songs. Who got like half of that album with videos? Some like I'm kind of jealous comes to because I'm like God got some a lot of money because I don't believe news because to three hundred dollars you've got to that like two Grand Hossam But I mean like he comes with visuals all the time like it just seems uh-huh but like sometimes it's harder when you're not thinking about it me really not thinking about that you think about making music and put node albums doing shows. Oh so I guess that comes with the territory to so and black. Don't you think especially token of social media instagram. People really low videos jobs these days just clip since and things. How do you think social media is infecting hippo? Even though it's good trash ah why trash 'cause you took you took hostile from the man straight up we don't go in hand juicy now without l. go to audio macklin audio mecom. Just search out Jake Thompson. That's how you do it. I mean out people are not really like I. I'm not saying that social media a bad thing I'm just saying trashed for the industry. You know what I mean. 'CAUSE now wider album. Slap it on there now. Everybody else can get on. I mean. Download your Meanwhile you don't make no profit Sino. Polite people are having a problem with that but when you really look at the industry guy that's what killed it. 'cause you don't have nobody foot soldier I'm in almost Don't have nobody sticking up flyers. Were really like that. You don't clean assist. Hey go to facebook go to twitter snapchat instagram. Her her advertised that stuff got helps but at the end of the day. It really doesn't cause now we're all easy to game so I mean you you think so. This is goodbye strache ball of instagram or youtube and all these things also led us to discovering new. ooh pretty decent artists. Oh Yeah for sure for sure not. I'm not saying that that's why I said it's good and it's just takes away from like like interview interview if we didn't have social media then we'll have to find a good air or someone to distribute albums right. You know what I mean you have have to have the coast sign nowadays. We don't need a coach. 'cause we got oswego social media so social media does help you find the Network with that's what his bomb mm for like that. That's what I said too. Good private is good because if you didn't go new social media wouldn't have at the artists of collaborating across the world the song with a guy I from From Uganda if I was in on social ramming media That would never have like. How would I find that follow? But I just find that took the actual hard hustle. Love like music itself and just people's pockets can Kinda aw raped say and So this is going to heavy because hippocrates actually Pastorin stone a few days ago. 'em Too sad circumstances do think We're really dealing with mental health in Ozzy Is Salat well when doing heavy heavy drugs or just bullying or even getting inside Joel heads yet. it's a big thing but I think a lot of lot of the people need to talk about it 'cause if they don't Iconic a bomb you on the wing for explode but like a lot of stuff going on in the world just period not even hip hop all over Reagan. A lot of people notable advice. More people should come put in in. What would you do? That isn't being done now. I'll just can do is just talk with him. Is You know like anyway.

Santa Life going to be in you know depression or whatever the case is like you know. It's everybody's gotTa realize they're not alone comes to like stuff like that. You know what I mean so it just depends on how that person helps himself has if they don't help themselves then they're just going to spiral down to Dr Kohl Understand it to not alone. That's that's the main anything Understanding so you're married kid Any of your kids making music unusual. They've music or my daughter. Surpri do the art then but it's not gonNA music should probably do something else you know whether it's painting drawing stuff with tap she took it the artistic part of it. My son laughing.
