As we've noted in previous episodes journey to the west is one of the most popular and influential works of east asian literature in the world. It's a dense. One hundred chapter adventure story. Full of thrilling vignettes and spiritual lessons key to the second part is the novel's hero among who comes to be known as trippy. Taka taka a monk of the tong. Dynasty is the spiritual heart of the saga while his companions such as the monkey king bend even break rules in order to succeed trippy. Taka is resolute in his buddhist though he comes up against monsters demons and ruthless murderers he never wavers in his pacifism which makes him the ideal buddhist hero but also puts him in incredible danger throughout his journey will begin with the story of his birth. And this is where we'll get a little controversial. You see his upbringing is almost entirely based on chapter nine of journey to the west a chapter that is not present in the fifteen ninety two printing. It's thought by many to have been a later edition and thus less authentic to the text however will stand with scholars like anthony. See you who argued that the rest of the novel contains enough textual references to treat takas origin story. That chapter nine is a key piece of the story in his words. These later allusion certainly cannot be construed as incontrovertible proofs for a loss chapter it may be safely asserted however that the author of the hundred chapter novel is thoroughly familiar. With the tradition of the birth and adventures of the infant schwinn song popularised in the dramas of un and ming china and that he has consciously and skillfully exploited this tradition in his narrative. Since us assertion some evidence has indicated that chapter nine comes from addition of she. Oh gee that predates the fifteen ninety two edition but that's a rabbit hole. We are going to dive down right now. It's time we got to our story. We meet our young hero at a key point in his life already wise beyond his years. He's about discover the story of his parents a tale which would make even the most zen monk lose his composure. Schwenn sawn unfolded the blood-stained note and read it began with a poem. A simple stanza. That said three fields of flowers bloomed like brocade an eight rivers flowed encircling the city this refers to the city of john an in the shaanxi province. The capital of china's tong dynasty. Where schwinn san's mother grew up. Her story began thirteen years. Into the reign of emperor ties. Along in a year called jesusa it was a time of prosperity without war or strife in the first lunar month of the year and edict went out calling for an imperial examination. This was a custom at the time. A way of selecting a new crop of scholars and wisemen for official positions throughout the empire for women like een wen jiao daughter of the chief minister. This examination was a nuisance for days. The streets of china would be clogged with visitors. From all over china it was annoying but perhaps an opportunity for young unmarried woman. She stood at her window turning embroidered ball over in her hands as the newly minted scholars past below her her eyes alighted on one of them a handsome man who seemed deeply uncomfortable with the palm of the procession. She knew him immediately to be chin. E one ray a scholar who had achieved the title of swung the highest possible honor. Seeing a quick prayer she hurled the ball at his black hat. Hey who through that guan. Ray didn't see where the soft missile came from. Nor did he realize what its purpose was until a handful of attendance swarmed his horse and began to escorted away from the procession. What are you doing. Hey you stop that. Is this legal. Guan ray was made to dismount and brought inside. He was about to protest again when he saw the woman waiting for him at the top of the stairs. It is perhaps worth mentioning that her nickname was manned thanh jiao or a hall of loveliness and for good reason to my lady thousand pardons put us there. Something i can do for you. I'm part of a rather important procession. it depends. Do you know why. I summoned you here summoned. It seems more like a brief kidnapping to me. I can return you to your academic friends if you'd rather not no i should thank you in truth. The procession has been rather exhausting. How long have you been procession three days. My father always said he thought the celebration was a greater ordeal than the tests themselves. Your father chief minister. Jean -cation you may have met him not us of yet you will is still having answered my question. Do you know why you were summoned. Here well someone hit me with a ball and that was me. I wanted to ask if i might steal you away from these festivities for an entirely different sort of ceremony. It didn't take one ray long to pick up on. What wen jiao was. Driving at marriages happened fast back then. There was little room for endless flirtation or the romantic trial and error. That has become the custom in modern times and to both involved. This seemed to be a perfect match as a minister's daughter when zhao had high standards for the man she would marry and with the likelihood of an official posting very soon guan. Ray wouldn't have much time for courtship. It was after all fate that brought them together and fate that set them on the road to jen. So where guan ray was to serve as governor it was late spring and the weather was idyllic as when noted in her account a soft wind circle to green the willows. A fine rain fell to read in the flowers. This passage written in blood. Some nine months later would be the last poetry in wind jao saw in the world around her. It was an arduous journey. They walked by day and slept by night though. They had a young man to assist them with their belongings. Progress was slow between weather delays and stops to inform guan raise family about their sons fortune. It was months before they made any conceivable progress. One night as they stayed at the end of ten thousand flowers guan ray entered with a curious look on his face. Gone ray look strange. Tell me what's the matter sometimes. I wonder if we'll ever reach jones. Though at this rate have faith my dear husband. The emperor will understand the delays. He knows the value of as one gwen. I may be but even. I am mystified by some signs. I've been seeing is that what troubles you so omens and signs. It is no small matter. Take this afternoon. I was walking in the market and saw merchant who offered to sell me golden carp freshly caught from the river. Hong high thought. This would make a fine supper. So i purchased the fish. The moment he walked away. I something odd in the fish's face. It was blinking rather vigorously to. I've been told that fish blinking in such a way must be returned to the water immediately. So i had it sent away your gentle heart. We missed out on one meal. That is all even if the fish was just a fish. Kindness repaid to a living. Thing is not worth fretting about. I tried to do the right thing but my dreams are dark in them. I am standing on the surface of a river in conc- neither bank just the waters below my feet drawing me slowly in until i can feel nothing there. Is doom waiting for me. Oh you are mistaking your own. Fear for a foul omen are good man. Cheon gwan rei the future may contain dangers but it contains hope well she brought his face to hers and kissed him and for an infinite moment all of their worries were dispelled soon after their route brought them to the banks of the great river hong the last barrier in their journey there was a modest taught by a river and a ferry tied up at the shore the three travelers guan ray win jau and their servant approached the hut promptly and were greeted by a man around the same age as guan ray and just about the same height but while guan ray stood tall and proudly this man walked with a hunch and swayed back and forth like someone who never lost his sea legs. He bowed low before the travelers and when jiao saw that his right hand was missing. Its middle two fingers. Welcome to our humble crossing. Will it be just the three of you or are you waiting for family. Just the three of us thank you. I trust we can set off immediately. What's your rush my lord. Surely you wish to take in the beauty of. I have an appointment to make boatman so if you're planning on extracting extra fees from me for sightseeing don't bother high. Wouldn't dream of it. Only a true villain would swindle a pair of newlyweds at this when jiao spoke up something about this man gave her the creeps and she hoped that small talk would dispel the feeling after all country folk or not the same as the city people she was used to. Why do you call us newlyweds. He looked to her and she immediately regretted her interjection. The man's is pressed into her like needles. A young couple packed lightly. It's no great mystery unless the servant here is your son or such a beautiful woman barron. I do not think either is likely hence newlyweds here. Wit is amusing now. Will you grant us passage. Certainly my lord. My business partner lee bow is readying the fairy as we speak. But perhaps you might wanna make camp here and wait to travel. These waters can be quite treacherous after dark. We shall leave now. I will brook no further delay. Very well the sun had set by the time they set out upon the water. The boat man's predictions seemed an exaggeration as the river remained. Mostly calm when jao sat by the edge of the boat peering out across the dark water for a moment when jal thought she saw something glimmered deep beneath the surface not the silver glint of stars but something golden and warm a moment later the light vanished leaving her to wonder if she had seen it at all chin. Did you see that. She turned back to see her husband snoring gently in his seat. She leaned up against his shoulder and smiled to herself. She had made the right choice the next thing she knew when john was awakened by a strange startled cry she bolted upright is alighting on her already. Awake husband. guan. Ray was at the edge of the boat staring into the water spend. What's wrong. can you swim no chin. You're scaring me. Don't come any closer. Than when jao the woman known as a whole of loveliness stepped to her husband's side. She would not have the truth hidden from her no matter how ugly the boat had run aground though she could not see far in the dark when joe could tell that this was not the other shore she'd been hoping to see. This was an island somewhere. In the center of the river and in the shallow water a murky figure lay rising and falling lazily with the waves. It was their servant. The boys throat had been cut and his skin was already pale from blood loss. He must have fallen out in the dark. Cut his throat iraq perhaps now the boatmen did this chin looked at her. There was no doubt in his gaze only fear. They were trapped with a pair of murderers and nowhere to run in a moment. The newlyweds attempt an escape wayne.

The night was silent on the river. Hong as silent as the grave. When joe and her husband chin iguana ray watched their servants body float away carried by the river current the boy had seemingly been killed by their boatmen who now were missing but when joe knew they could not have gone far she held her husband's hand tightly as they stood on the ferry they had two options push off and attempt to guide the boat themselves or abandon it entirely and hide on this small island. Neither seemed ideal. Something moved on. The shore rustling bushes. They could barely see when jao squeezed tighter. The boat rocked dangerously and she turned a thin bald man with a straight back stood at the end of the boat holding a crudely carved club. This was lee. Bow one of the boatmen. The boat rocked again. As on the other side. Leo hong clambered aboard the three fingers of his right hand clutched a small rusted dagger. Guan ray backed up against the side of the boat gently guiding his wife behind him. He was trembling but his voice was steady animals. Hugh killed an innocent boy. You say that as if it should bother me. Lower your fists wong yuen. You're a scholar fighter. You know me. I have friends in young so with attentive ears. They told me a new governor would be coming within the year with his beautiful wife. Imagine my delight. When i saw you had no west card. So he wouldn't turn to hold me for ransom is that it's not a bad guess. That's what lee suggested. And he made some interesting points. But why would. I take a small portion of a governor salary. When i could have it all know. Just wait a moment. But leo hong didn't let him finish. He lunged forward dagger aimed straight for the scholars heart. Guan ray seized the bad. It's wrists the two men wrestled over the blade swinging each other back and forth as if caught in some sort of lethal dance overcoming. Her own fear. When jao leapt into leo hongs back clawing biting and grasping at him anything to get the man off of her husband in her panic. She forgot the second boatman. Guan raise head jerked forward struck by lebron house club. He released the dagger and collapsed to his hands and knees free from the struggle. Leo hong through wen jiao off of his shoulders. Her entire world spun when she landed when her vision righted. It was too late. The two boatmen were laying into her husband clothing kicking and stabbing guan raise body in a frenzy when he finally stopped moving they heaved him up and over the side of the boat when jao shrieked and ran to the side of the boat guan raised body did not float like their servant. It's sank like a stone disappearing into the dark water with a glint of gold. Finery a moment later. It was as if he had never existed not hesitating when zhao heaved herself up to the edge of the boat ready to jump in but the boatmen seized her and pulled her roughly back into the ferry. He's gone here. You mustn't throw yourself after him. Just try and stop me. We're both very good swimmers. My lady are you jump off the boat and we'll just bring you back. What do you want with me. Why don't you just kill me and get it over with. That'd be a terrible waste. Wouldn't it. I'm gonna need you alive to establish my cover story. I beg your pardon. you're looking at the new governor of junk so we're going to have a contract you and i. If you break this contract i will doubt your liver and your heart while you're still breathing. You understand. I understand the. Let's be on our way and from now on referred to me as chin. Guar nri yes. The boatmen said off down the river lee. Bow guiding the craft. While leo hong went through chin iguana raise clothing to find vestments. That would suit him with both her captors preoccupied when jao could have done something anything but the murderer was right if she flung herself into the water it would only make her punishment more severe. She did not fear death but paying was another matter entirely so she sat in the boat thinking that with every stroke of the stores they were going further and further from her husband Thoughts filled her mind. How long until the fish ate his flesh away and there was nothing left but bones would parts of her husband would survive lying all but forgotten on the riverbed. There was indeed a part of him that survived. She was sure of it but it was not in the river. It was growing within her. They arrived in the city of john so soon after and were greeted by the officials clerks and aides who threw a great banquet for their new governor at the banquet when joe sat beside her. Fake husband stewing with resentment. Oh how she hated him. She could stomach the meal before her by imagining that. The pork was lee blouses flesh. She pictured herself devouring him piece by piece before wrapping his empty skin around her. Like a cloak he addressed the chamber and with each word. She hated him. All the more gentlemen ladies wise and noble politicians of junk so your hospitality fills me and the lady yien with such joy and gratitude. I hope to be as good a governor as you deserve. But i must insist. I will be highly dependent upon your advice experience when making my decisions. I am new to this after all pretty speech. I wonder how long it will take them to realize you are no truths wong yuen. They never will flattery dulls even the sharpest wits lady. You cannot possibly think this will last. You want to be governor. But you have no qualifications. No skills. I think you should focus on your own future for instance. How long will you think of yourself as a captive rather than a wife after all. This is not so much worse than an arranged marriage. Don't you think i chose my husband. Is that so well. Then you chose. A man faded to die by my hand so in a way. You chose me as well from her. First day. At the governor's mansion when jao began to devise ways to escape. She must have written a thousand times to her father. Chief minister yien she needed was one letter to get through and leo hongs ruse would be up but he must have bought the servants trust early on they would take her letters but not a single one left john so she knew this because she found a scrap of parchment written in her hand in the ashes by their stove. The one mercy of leo hongs new position was that he would often be called away on affairs of state leaving when jiao to her own devices he barely noticed when her belly began to swell and it was during one of these trips that it finally happened when jao was walking through the pavilion garden when she was seized by a horrible pain and collapsed into the earth wetness spreading down her legs. She clenched her. Jaw resisting the urge to cry out. She did not want anyone to hear least of all the servants who would report to leo hong hand over agonizing hand. She crawled to a private chamber where she was sure. No one could hear her screams by the time her child was born. It felt as if every ounce of strength in her body was gone little one. I wish we had more time together. I don't even know what to call you. That evil man has tainted both my name and your father's when gels luck had run out. It seems leo. Hong had come home just in time to walk in on when jao with a newborn baby shaq registered on leo's face for a moment before it hardened into rage. Give it to me. Now wait please. You must have known this what happened. Surrender the child now. And i will make sure it has quick and painless death but husband. You are so busy. How am i to know you'll do it properly. Perhaps i could take care of this for you. You must be tired after your trip. Rest awhile and i will. I will dispose of the baby tomorrow morning. Let me do it in my own way. Please how would you do it. I would think the baby in the river just as you did with their father that way they may see each other in the next life once. We are rid of them. I mean we can begin our life together properly. Be rid of the last piece of chinni guan away very well but bring me some peace of a child to know that it is done a finger or an ear perhaps of course my husband when gels relief did not last long when she could muster the strength. She carried the child out of the city and down to a nearby riverbank. I am so sorry with a knife taken from the kitchen. She cut off her child's little toe both as proof of the deed. And maybe just maybe a way to identify them when they grew up then she cut her own finger and wrote a note in blood relating her whole story. It ended with the line. Do not judge me too harshly from my failings little one. I will live in this gilded prison until you come and find me or until fate decides. I should join your father all my love in new in jiao a little over eighteen years later schwenn saen finished reading the blood-stained note. He lowered the parchment hands trembling. His mother was or at least might be still alive and trapped in a marriage to the man who had murdered his father. He looked up at his master trying to ignore the itching on his right foot where his toe had been cut off. Why did you hide this from me. I have never hidden anything. I knew you would comfort when you're ready. I have to find her. I needed to know that. I'm still alive. I thought you might say that. Which is why. I have a warning for you. If you're about to tell me to stay here of course not you must go beat warned. A monk cannot be a warrior you may well desire to enact violence upon this leo hong but remember he is the governor of that city and has been for almost twenty years raise a hand against him and he will have just cause for executing you. What can i do temper. Your rage young. One go to your mother and you will find a way to obtain justice for your father. Thank you master. I will return my duties to the temple will not be forgotten. One thing at a time schwinn song and so the monk. They called river float packed his things and set off towards john so there was hope in his heart but an even greater dose of fear. After all how can a pacifist. Defeat a murderer in a moment will tell the story of a very strange family reunion. This episode is brought to you by comcast in the last ten years.

Let us begin this part of the story with proverb oft-quoted by the boat. Assad full gwen. It goes a man with good intent. Will win heavens ascent lady yien win. Jiao had heard this saying once. When she was very young she awoke one morning from adrenal asleep with it echoing and her mind array of comfort. In the cold governor's palace. She refused to call home. She was not old as a young woman she was married and as a young woman she gave birth. But you would not know it from looking at her grief. Fear and stress cut deep lines under her eyes and made her posture week. You could still call her beautiful but her beauty was like a ghost's grey and lifeless when the round faced monk showed up at her door he was met with the same misty eyed stare that greeted all guests to the governor's mansion. She was used to seeing chin. E guan ray in strangers nearly every day so seeing a man who wore such striking resemblance to her dead husband was little surprise teams homes for a poor monk. Wherever did you come from a disciple at the gold mountain temple. My lady here for homes if you can spare it gold mountain temple. That has a long way to travel for charity. Why do you come all the way to john's so i is the governor at home. My husband is away on important business. I can tell you called. The what a buddhist would want with. My husband is beyond me. I actually here to speak with you with me. Are you know the lady yang. Also known as manton joe at this comment when jal looked at the stranger with new intensity the fog of grief lifting from her gaze. No-one had used this nickname to address her in years chin. I don't understand. My father's name was chin. So i suppose these belong to you. He unfolded his back and held out the belongings that she had given him eighteen years ago. The note the garment and the box that contain them both. He then removed his shoe to reveal the missing toe that she left as painful birthmark and long. Lost son embraced. Weeping openly in the governor's mansion when joe's heart lifted like it hadn't for almost twenty years but even she knew this moment of joy could not last her son had come here for a reason and both of them knew what it was. I have to get you out of here if your husband is out of town. Let's just go. We can offer you protection at golden temple. I wish it were that simple. But i've learned many lessons while living with leo hong. The men has been governor for almost two decades. He has servants and soldiers whose loyalty comes without question. If any one of them spies me leaving the city with a strange monk we will be captured before we get to leagues from here. There has to be some way to escape. Don't you think i've tried. It has been a long eighteen years and often. i lost. Hope that your best to safety but there is no way out. Well if we can't get away from him we'll have to get him away from you. The words had barely left swenson's mouth when the door bursts open when joe's heart sank her false husband had once again intruded upon her and her son. If the years of confinement had worn on wen jiao they had done. So aa for leo hong. The man's pronounced stoop was now a complete hunch and is black. Beard was thinning. His is still held the same malice as they looked upon when jao seeing her happiness for the first time since they first met he gave a yellow toothed smile. I'm home early my love. Who is this. Peggy you're entertaining. My name is shrines on my lord. I came because if you say you're here beg for food. I'll take one of your fingers for trade. Well i. he's here to visit me husband to visit you. Why yes you see. When i was a young girl vowed to donate one hundred pairs of shoes to the local temple. Last night i had a dream that among appeared before me demanding his shoes and the next morning here he is. The mysteries of fate are quite incredible. Aren't they. I suppose as a scholar. You appreciate this far more than i. One hundred shoes an easy thing to obtain do not worry dear monk my wife was a silly girl and in some ways is still that same silly girl but tell me. Will you dine with us tonight. Oh no i couldn't presume. We have no plans. Don't we dear. Don't you have an appointment. Whatever it is can wait a hundred shoes for a monk who only wears one is much more interesting. The governor of john's zo hosted schwenn son that night. There cooks made the monk vegetarian plate so that he would not break the vows of his order as they ate schwenn saen felt the eyes of leo hong on him even the aroma of expertly blended spices could not dilute the discomfort in the room. So tell me monk. I couldn't help but notice you're missing. Toe has meditating become especially dangerous lately. It was an accident from when i was an infant. I barely remember it. They say i was trying to climb a tree and i fell in a sharp rock. Such accidents speak to poor parenting. No wonder you chose to become a monk. I chose my path because it is the right one for me and yet here. You are collecting shoes. Like a common moneylender. A curious path. Indeed not as curious as yours. I should think from a bookworm in a small village to a governor. The way lady tells it you had no political ambition before this. How did you wind up as governor. I tested well. Yes i hear. The imperial exams are quite rigorous in both science and philosophy. I'm sure we have a great deal to discuss. You and i could not help but enjoy himself as he saw. Leo hongs face turned pink with embarrassment for the rest of the evening. Schwenn song talked circles around the pretend scholar pointing to every evasion gap in logic casually as if debate was second nature to him. By the time the meal was finished. Leo hong was practically steaming with rage. Thank you for the visit in the stimulating conversation young monk. I promise we will have your shoes before too long. So enraged was leo hong that he didn't notice the note that passed between his wife and schwenn song if he had maybe he would have killed them. Both right there no matter the consequences for us. The boat asada gwen nien is fond of saying when a good word is spoken. An answer will come from beyond a thousand miles when an evil word is spoken. Opposition will hail from the same distance in schwenn. San's hands the letter found. Its way from. John sow to the capital city of china. There it was opened by the monks grandfather.

So it's definitely really crazy out here is very strict in for filming. GotTa get tested a lot. Some got constantly got a cute about my nose. We. Are. You know been following the precautions than. Doing what I gotTa do is this filming ridiculousness or this? Eleven hip out because Jao. I'm not that again and. Our they don't. Like there's definitely going fighting you. Know Day started already in Atlanta Day fighting and filming. On that there's no way they here in la like. With the, how would you do show I? Don't see you next show at all like I. Want my boy Chauncey I went to high school with he was working with some people on the show and he was like, you know because you know he knows me like from high school in like you know a lot of people don't really get the relief from TV ridiculousness or whatever I'm on a host on a show. So it's not really about me and my life or whatever, and he was like Yo, you need to do love and hip hop people need to get snow the real you and unfortunately I didn't know how much they wouldn't get to know the real me. It's A. Really around the I, love it that they showed my musical that I was so grateful for that. The show of music looks but. I don't like the drama shows person you know and like I felt like I felt like it was a lot of like here. Do you WANNA drink while you wait to film the scene? Fought with a lot of udal exciting drama and I'm just not really into that shit that you were having those drinks while waiting. Was 'cause. But she find the drink. You Way because they want to they want you aggravated drunk? So you're ready to go. It's like a pit bull that they've been. You know. Go. Exactly. But these the benefit whereas you get to see the museum I. Think you always get away at the pros and cons that allow you might have like drama Yup. I was so I like I'm staying on. So great for that because it's like you know ridiculousness is not a show about about me it's a clip show. You know we have guests in I don't get to talk about my music a lot like here and there at of So many episodes on Levin hip hop. I told him I said, Yo I'm down basically for any shenanigans whatever. But like please just give me the music looks like I'm risk really wide doing this to finally get to showcase my music on TV TV does help a lot when I put out to on that show and they did great. So I was really happy about that I even as far as dating you. Okay with those shenanigans. A little bit. Yeah. You know. Let's say I don't want I don't WanNa blast that show I I like the people I worked with. So you did put out a couple of songs and let's talk about it. 'cause music sounds different now. Thank you. So what what is this new sound from Chanel West Coast? Wong I'm singing a lot more. That's. Part, my new sound I think that a lot of people don't know the reason I started rapping done music my whole life but I didn't really know how to write like a singing songs like I didn't know where to begin with these melodies like so and I'm always wrote poetry since I was little girls was like, okay I did hip hop dance I write poetry cut like the rapping just kind of was a more natural thing for me but. I've had a lot of resistance as a rapper. So I I had a lot of producers and people tell me no, maybe you should sing more and do more of that and I, basically like I really like honed in on my of writing, getting better writing scenes of two. So there's GonNa be like a lot more of that on upcoming album. Why do You, feel like you've gotten so much resistance because there has been other women of your caliber that have gotten into the field and have been able to to be successful at it. Would you think was the biggest drawback for for people from U You know I think that because I'm on each shows where I'm really happy unlike giggling and lack in the. Law In like obviously, if you're hanging out around rob, you're still you're gonNA laughing happy twenty, four, seven, you know I think people were just like confused like why girl rapper? What's your struggle where you come from? You know like your like dislike little white on making money but it's like you don't know wrapping since I was broke ass like with with not. Shit you so So I think that being on TV and it just makes me. We'll see you in a different light like a lot of people look at me like I'm some little like little rich girl or something into seasons of a lot of work on MTV to finally make a good amount of money. You know because then first couple of seasons girl. I've been. Working Retail my first couple seasons. We just like have enough to live La expensive, place? So yes, I think it was really just like being on comedy shows that were so happy all the time. then. You hear me a little bit more matt or something maybe show is a complete different person. But obviously, don't see my struggle or you don't get really see me around other women on fantasy factory ridiculousness I. Come up looking inward cute seats on the only girl with the guys you know. So I think it was really just like I think people just couldn't put my personality they couldn't get it. You know would this lip service in? So let's talk about one of your songs. No plan. What's a good night with now west coast when there's no plans would you like to do you know I'm a showgirl definitely when there's no plans I'm trying to watch some good movies. Get my mind off of everything. That's really the only time I stopped in in. So hard as when I get into like a good show or a good movie, and obviously there's a cute guy. So watch with the great thing to do. So with great date night for you are the guys out there. Definitely, I like when the guy put some effort into it island doing different things you know obviously everything's closed now. So you don't have to get extra creative and I, think the bathroom funny to see to during this pandemic like just you know there's a couple of guys asked me on dates up and I'm like y'all we can't go to dinner like eight times. You know what I'm saying like let's get a little bit creative and do something different. So. That's what I'm kind of waiting to see I. Guess You could say, what will these guys get created next? You said a cute guy. I want to know with your ideal cute guy. You know that's a good question I. my friends will joke around like my on my pathway friends have been I basically dated like every race on the planet. To Mexican worker in a black boyfriend, a Scottish voters. Got It. I really don't I really don't have a tight but what makes me attracted? If somebody's funny like I'm not some hot guys come try to halt mean like they're so boring I'm like. You're cute like. Go looks matter so much. You'll be okay with a guy that's not a looker. Ya'll my friends also joke I might have had ugly boyfriend before. Thought, he was so funny and dope. Beauty's in the eye of the beholder. No somebody with great personality I think we'll always trump somebody who's good looking with his personality yesterday. I go for a boring fine. I said boring fine. You. Look dumb. They look good. They got us. Expect if. You belong that lay. LOVED IT IN LA? Never been with somebody that you liked him. You know I think that's what fell in. Love with my first love probably was next we definitely had the best exodus relationships but wiping ever. He was best known like my I. Love Like My I. Love. It was like my first soulmate like I knew was my i. think that's how I knew. He was my soulmate. So Oh, I don't like addicted to this person. You know what? I was reading this article they were talking about having orgasms for hours and I was like, how does a person do that like have you can have every done that that's the thing like they mean like for hours. Let me just yet break this down. The Sima. Google. Searches. If it comes up and you got some nasty shit going on your screen I'm GonNa definitely screen shot it. You're trying to educate my nasty bitch. God. I was reading this article they said member deeper voices on more likely to cheat. Just to put that out there for you. Yeah. I'm. thinking. About my cheater boyfriends. Devices Okay Lay said this is on men's health in. This couple trains people to have hour long orgasms. So as a couple and they teach you how to have these orgasms that last hours, it says And fifteen years respectively, they teach yoga. Teacher this over zoom we tried this. Willis they'll be good because think about it. It's like you know things that are good is because you don't have them all the time sometimes that's what it is. Orgasm for entire hour then when you do and. I just had one for an hour yesterday like. Like okay. You guys went another technique everybody get them no kidding. Right that technique is fairly basic you lift at the Clean Tomorrow Hood and very gently stroke the quit stories with one thumb resting at the edge of the vaginal opening. You can also produce the same effect stroking a pianist emphasizing the under side of the head guys love that part the little Yeah. I just use it them on it and like what? I guess. The key is using slow light touch. I don't been lifted up my Claro Hood Good Yahud Ahead too. So. You wouldn't. WanNa. Have Orgasm our no feel about tastes like the lake, the Lake specialness out of it or something agreed. Okay. Let me ask you this. If you have in Gazza, is it over for you during sex or can you do multiple times? The I mean I don't know definitely multiple times. This is a struggle. I gotTA keep it real. Keep having sex you know right but I don't think there's to to to happen like I. that's going to be my next love I may he's amazing so tell us about your I. Love How long ago is this? Why did you guys break up a first soulmate had my I love like savvy passed away. So that was my first love. So he passed away. My first SOLEX soulmate who I think are default of the fact that my I love passed away I really felt from we had such a connection on music and comedy like we make each other laugh forever like we would just tell each other jokes laugh nonstop and he was a producer. He may be you know like we we really chemistry working in the studio. So it was like that was what the connection wasn't. Then obviously like I said the sex once that started it was like okay. Yeah. I'm like I'm in love I'm never going anywhere. That would happen is left. Eater Yeah I went on tour and I think you know I think guys get insecure and stuff. You know when you're like a boss Bitch I'm out on tour like he's still back at home or what are even though he's still hustling. I'm like Oh you're still doing your thing like why'd you have to be insecure but I I believe in my heart that's why he was a cheater 'cause I think he was insecure that I was so busy around that time and. You know I don't know got some guys can't deal with that. That's tough. How how did you catch him? Like how do we need now? Did you catch him? Catching. That's going. To. I think I'm just a detective I have the best intuition. I started to like sense some shady no, he was his acting mad different than than its is such a long story. But let's say you remember how it on Instagram and the photo map and you can let tag were they took that away probably guys. The cement getting caught up cheating, right So, basically, the girl to make a long story short when I started to get a idea who was I looked on her on her instagram and I saw that she posted to pictures from his fucking house while that's yet. That's when I lost it. Let's just say a loss the next level how silly I know somebody who has friends with two? So No, what did you do? That's crazy and she knew that man you know that see him. I think she was idiot that like I. Don't know. Maybe I think she wanted to get the air. Sometimes, you didn't and nodoze sometimes, it would geo tag you and you Dami Beret allowed because one I had a geotech to my crib. I would never have it go directly to my house and I seen some pictures on my thing so that then when the instagram was, I doing that stuff I used to do it without you know yeah. No, she probably told on herself by mistake maybe who knows but that's how I caught them so. Did you do anything. Did you like? Okay. So this girl. I'm not crazy unless I have the me. She had the longest hair and I swear all I thought about you guys I don't want us out crazy my reading here you're on TV you need she'll how they were. All big for like a month I was I just needed keeps it with meeks born. Cutter. LONG ASK REAL HAIR Like my hair speak. Stevens borough cutting your hair off that never happy because I, I'm pretty sure she moved out. It's like she moved out of l. a. downtown out of Hollywood who've I think she didn't want to run into me and I'm always Here, so So you still haven't seen her since then I'm not seen her no real. Do you still have the sensors in your bag? She was like. I do. Casey comes house. Is The craziest thing you've ever done because of a guy. I would say in that situation just broke up with him a like I just like broke two mirrors in his house. That's bad. Leg You. Get Yourself. Bad monk arm. That's what everybody was telling the actor and I'm like. Happy because I haven't had the local guys after the. Next time break the TV now next time break the windows of his car. Didn't you hear Desmond telephone like that's not get back to you because it's not a mirror and now he's GonNa be fun because he can't go nowhere we write. Our near the car though in the in the heat of the moment I was near two mirrors. Okay. Okay you. Know Stephanie's vice he's being logical. Don't break any break anything the TV in the bedroom could then. Can't watch TV trust me it and I know like I said it 'cause you did it. You get the TV in a bedroom but say, I've never done something like this. I, don't condone that behavior kid. New TV I don't love it either but it's like. Not Moment, you're just so mad you know like. We had to do a disclaimer. Condone this. Now now. Now now. But when it was my turn to do With okay. The craziest thing I've ever done because of a guy is I get attached to get US pretty crazy. How many stuff that stupid. I've been suited like four five times. The crazy thing I've done is four or five times. I've gotten a tattoo of a guy. Just from my experience. What about now West goes any chances? I hit for joining on that call. She said to. Actually, it was when I was young I was like like eighteen. On his name but I've had I got it removed since then yeah. That's the smart thing to do right this. Cover it up or get it removed yeah. Geiger fully removed because it was small enough. So it was easy to get rid. That's a good idea you're gonNA get one because sometimes you're man would be going and I'm GonNa, get went to just get a sma- yeah. A face or some shit. Yes-. Basic crush your back. How about the guys that you work with because I? Know you said that Axa Guy Jealous. So did he bill away because I feel like you work around a lot of man you assign the cash money that you got the whole ridiculousness is all man. So Bernie the did they play a part of any of that like do those guys had to highlight? You'll ever know not there when my brothers of the boyfriend who I think she did because he was insecure fundings he cheated loses Gerbil, he wasn't like controlling or. Anything. So I don't think that those guys whatever you know. Make him feel any type of way like I said, they're like my brothers but a yeah, he was just you know you really actually let me do my thing like when I was worked for example, like he was there in studio I work French Montana unlike she's hilarious to French acquiring this actually I was dating dated the time and he produced the beat of the Song I did with French and he was joking he goes yo yo go ahead to flirt get feature. added. Cruel like that. But I think the reason he did end up cheating was 'cause like I was starting to pop off around the time and like. Whatever. But we. That's That to. A move said. She did make me put myself out for you. Know Joking I'm joking. This Dumbo by yourself to the studio negative. When even to the studio with Nick is it depends on who away like like you said somebody like French. French since I was a little girl. So he's like my brother. So that's not. We don't went to French phone on this show actually before like people like him it's cool. But if it's like people that I don't really know that well, which allows guys shot to be extra friendly when they don't know you and think that could they see you cool with another? Do you not I? Mean so I've definitely got an invited out somewhere after two am like Oh don't you just stop by my room I and I'm like, yeah, one of my way black or Or never ends. You know they'll never answer that person but I felt like with certain people you don't worry about like that but. As a woman, you still want to go to the studio and. How people get features right you just Leo and. This is not as easy. Guys could do they could pop up being out. Smoke and then get a feature as a woman is used to tell that'd be like, oh but just don't go by yourself. Yeah. Make one of your friends go that WanNa fuck. Chanel West. Coast, let's talk about you and your new music. I heard anchors and people like that was a whole different type of sound for you also when you put that out. So what is the reception been like so far? Do you have one in USA coming? Yes. I'm working on my album now and I actually put anchors on the album even came out a little while ago like people love that song so much. So I wanted to put it on there but yeah, there's a lot more songs like anchors like like the melodic singing like it's still I still try to stay true to like like hip hop roots you know even though it's more poppy. 'cause like I was a hip hop dancer since seven. My Dad was a hip hop DJ in New York Hip Hop? Harry though. Cop. Marry. Somebody. But yeah. So so the music is still definitely hip-hop I'm rapping on on it, but there's a lot more singing in and there's a lot more softer side than need to like I have a lot of party songs in the past Shit like I still have those on there but I got a lot Lotta love songs on his album, and then there's a couple of series songs to talking about. You know I have some colorblind that basically just talking about like I don't care what color you are love everybody no matter what race you are in song about unity and bringing people together and have another song that's still war I. Know Russ has a song called civil war drives me crazy because I've made the song like a little while ago and he ended up coming out with all civil war. Civil. War. But I'm still gonNA drop it and I am still dropping because the subject matter I think is very important. Is like the songs basically about how I feel like you know what? It's notice respect to any girls who get naked or however you pay your bills how you pay your bills but I feel like it's just we're very much in era where it's so forced in like even young you like what they have to do to get. Attention to get naked. So the song is really is it's a song for women about like a empowering women in like letting them know that you have to let you like all these other bitches like you could use your brains in like start a business or like you other things you know. So you have more like deeper songs on this album that I think will let let people see another side. So you don't have only fans I do think. That he was promoted his only phase page about to drop was going to say that's counterproductive. Vote. No. And, there's no like I said, no disrespect any has anything I just feel like I have the blessed to be on ridiculousness of make good money for a very easy job and unlike I don't need to go in like get naked for a little bit more money like I'd rather like finally start making money off my music. You know what I'm saying people are making. That only fans list of how much money people are making it is in Spain. I just WanNa tell Ya that and called me today. Told me she was GONNA giant fans. Taxes. She said I have taxes and we came up with the idea that only fans with the best solution for her so. Gallo. Her subscribe to her page right now. She's GONNA show. People like crazy beast not show a napping. So so haven't. So, you're just making money to what the Sabina bathing suit. You don't even have to do that. You could do whatever you want. It's just basically being a content creator. Paying there's guys on there, you know this you did stream put out his album use only bands as a way, the per manjula go put the Beethoven on. Only fans when you already have a following people who support you. You just instance rolls over like you don't have to use a Dell door be naked you just be yourself and your support is still gonNA. Use the Dell Dell Ben. That's like a bonus. You know if you have Nice era who are doing foreign on only fans are girls who don't who nobody knows then are really you know they're not really working entertainment they're doing porn on only fans. No Tiger Ed? Is that number three earner? He showed his deck right we. Work. It was a sex tape daily but I don't think he it on his only fan. They said that he leaked it to advertise this she he got only thing I think you just have a bunch of naked girls on the I don't think he someone has no he showing himself to. Dig Dick and it was epic day the name who I was, but I was with a guy and I was like, oh Let me see it. NIGGA. See because they were talking about it on twitter like I know about three negatives that I just sent it to them on some. Funny. ME. Shit. But you look. Look. It's weird when you know some of these guys in real life and then the tickets online. Yeah we it is of funny like Chris Brown one of. The. Breezy and here. Crystal. Like. I think he was most popular runs in the honor. With the most popular when or him or Trey the fiery. Had It pretty circulated one as well car Mostar. Takes the K. was that he was on. Levin hip hop the same as you say, Yo the same season right where we did a song together the data and try to get you out to be boyfriend and I feel like they always try to link people up relationship wise. Yana, we're just good friends an average. Playing against your leg. A. Topic right can then be successful and have good Zik somebody was saying that it's not possible for me to be successful and have good day because then he doesn't have time if he's being successful to like be good in bed. Or? No I think these successful than he's probably like just good at doing shit general. Back. I must wait it everything. Probably having. Sex. No no there. So successful is that ain't good at it Ever had is from a pretty successful man okay that that's going to. I. Have to agree I will say though the busiest that you get the harder, it is sometimes to have good sex. Okay. Yeah, you get tired of like. I like I used to not understand like Angela? What are you talking about? You went to sleep get up and do whatever you gotta do. But now it'd be like, Oh, I can't. Radio to national find you understand. Yeah. Now my stamina down like. My sixteen years of doing morning Radio magazine. And then your friends would go out and like I have to work in the morning you like work our fuck, which one are you going to choose? You. Wind Radio, Hall it will time I. When we're in the studio I get up at four o'clock in the morning.

You ever feel like I need some girl time like because you're around guys so much. Yes. I mean. Fantasy factory was even worse because it was like all guys and even have all guy crew to let. Girls on onset you know like. I. Have to rush so much to on ridiculousness like the guy is it'd pillow outer on hair makeup. That's why now like GonNa we'll notice but my hair is just the same a lot more like I don't even care about trying to change it in ten minute window like just the straight you know what I'm saying like. So now I just keep my hair the same. A lot more. So yes, you know a little bit of a struggle ending that makes me wish that I was on a a work like in a work environment where there's more girls but I don't know it's Kinda tight though to sometimes being the only girl in. Yeah. Could you tried that look what happened he was complaining about sitting and wait and we're liquor for hours. That's. So. Now, what are you looking for in a guy? You could describe after everything that you've been you've been with the cheaters you've been you know corona virus and like you said, it's not easy to date. You want somebody that is. Going to be successful but yet good in bed at the same time. What some of the things that you look for like what's the ideal man for you? Ideal man funny a funny. He's funny. He's got like successful. You know have a good head on his shoulders and definitely be supportive 'cause. That's a big thing like I have big dreams. I'm trying to lock my life and I wanna be with any guy that like is intimidated like I need to. I've realized that this point I have to more of a boss than I. Am like no more. I'm humble like I'm like day regular guys don't have to be like an athlete or wrappers in, but I'm at the point where my damn. Maybe I need bugging date an athlete or rapper couldn't above me so that I don't deal with these guys get intimidated. You know like trying to hold me back from trying to do which the end looking like they're crazy. All over the place like it is it use on my damn like I'm like it's abroad I, guess it's funny I don't have no type, but like there is no, you should see the all different types of guys menu. I'm like anybody do what? He. S. Good people. Yelich, they don't live in the state of this. It's been crazy with the pandemic and they're people that are like on. You know they're they gotta get tested law for worship found like, MBA NFL Aaron bubble. These guys serious though like if they reach out to you and your DM I'll have a budget like. These type of reach outs me and I don't take half of them series because sometimes approaching in. Like I'm just like a little Ho- or something like I'm like, asked me to dinner like what's up? Approaching you at the opening lines shit. Like had. Will never diss nobody your name name. Like, literally hitting me up like comfort studio at like two in the morning. I'm like at film ridiculous Morrow Six am call time. Don't care about that. Like. I'm not that bitch. So why do you think about the hop up in? The studio at two am like it's almost disrespectful. You know what? I mean like. So like I don't like when people approach me like that like I need a classy guy like, would you like to get dinner sometime or did it not get to know me? Yes exact-. You almost made me fall out with what am I do because we was watching it ridiculousness and he was like I think she's just so cute I might who thank you. Who who rob? Say She's pretty. How Ya? Okay okay. Now, I'm going to tell them. Yes. You really came up here to drag you know I wouldn't have to walk around with. Our I'll walk. Away is next I know you I to put out a project sometime in the future that right an album. So tell us what's next version out west coast definitely, this album is what's next after I dropped his album a lot songs on it. I've had a couple of friends joked with me you think Chris Brown. So, there's a lot of songs on the album. So my goal is suggests I. Really WanNa put out a visual for like every song on the album a. Stretch this album out you know there's been a couple of hours. They did that like that Riyan Ansi album like they stressed that good time and they were dropping single after single to the point where like wait was this on the last album still? Later you know so So I really, WANNA put like my time out really great visuals for every songs album because all these songs I mean to me so I'm just really like trying to one hundred percent have my music in the forefront now have so much time I got studio in my house now so Yeah. So during the pandemic is soon as we were on lockdown I went on Amazon was like buying everything I need to make music. That quick. There's a lot of that stuff probably win as. Dental continued all the workout equipment has gone student. Jumper. Originally was sold out so I'm happy I got shit like right right away and I actually made some some of the songs on my album like the is vetting of ever made my made it during the pandemic in my house in this little room downstairs are you recording yourself or do you have somebody that comes? It helps you out with that. I tried to start recording myself. I should as hard. Chestnut it's like I can do it but like it just takes so much time with a Lotta time. Not Props to anybody who reports themselves like they really deserve a lot. You know what I learned during their the pandemic like I had no choice. So it would just kind of like what you're going to do. One My engineer live right on the streets back though I got lucky and he needed work really bad too. So then I felt I almost felt like I wanted to help him to. So that kept me from learning more. Because I'm a night sitting on, help them out to the studio and he works at down like c-i-s. So eventually, I'm against war in select learn how to report myself because it's dope to. Be Able to get an idea of the warning like. Right now, you should definitely like. Thank you. Just get him to teach you like not that. You don't need him. You can't start have him around, but it's nothing like being able to do stuff yourself and I'm not gonNA lie how used to black I'm never gonNA know how to do this too much. But once you do one thing, it's so it gets so easy. 'cause you're like Oh this is it and I felt like once you get the hang of one thing it kind it rolled into the next. Misconceptions about you. As. I Dunno I guess the biggest misconception like I think people like look at me like see like maybe like A. Kylie, generally little rich girl or something. I can I get a lot of people have had people make comments to the like I did interview one time in. A black dude and he was like are bigger data freak out if you bought brought a black guy home and I'm like well, I don't think. So my step mom's black. So. How About that? Kylie Jenner's parents. I call her family I'd just her mother's. She's Kylie. Jenner's. CARE said her mother's Corrective correctly yes. They're both. Yes. Yeah. No I. Like this little like I don't know like girl next door type thing that people see in like I don't know that's like a big like I did not grow up like that. You know my grow counteraction. You say. You mean grew up ratchet even though I was like a crazy kid like I was. Like. I think that people like are really judgy by how people look. An adult with a lot of my life. You know it's just people. See me they dislike. Treat me like like really like extra privileges something like Eaton Online. I grew up struggling I support my mom. You know like I don't know it's just it's a weird. It's a weird energy I get sometimes people come off like they think I'm like like spoiled or something almost I don't that I've worked really fucking hard like when rob acid fantasy factory I literally was scrapped had changed scrounged up to go to McDonald's. You know I really like started from nothing and I think that's just. US what people don't get I think they just think how easy and You still young money like are you still with everybody? I'm definitely cool with Wayne. Him To, death. There was like someone is such a complicated long story like a young money basically. I don't like to bring up the pastor bring up things but I did you stab at the same management as Wayne Nicki in Let's just say there was conflicts of interest. Though so yes allowed cost like a little bit of a rift with my relationship young money but I still mcelwain. CONFLICTS OF INTEREST That's what I was told by you know. You don't even get know. Yeah. So you know I can't really speak on it fully, but it is hard to be on a label with somebody and have this management. Yeah. No I get it. I understand I understand why somebody might be mad or whatever. But. Speak. With this before after he started doing the reality TV staff. With young money when I started with them year like when when they're rift started Oh. y'All already on I was on TV I had just started ridiculousness and I just started working with management Got Me with young money the ones who brought me to Wayne. was. I Dunno weird like it was like. Bursting being told like Yo you're about to be young money like we're about to make this happen like telling me like bobsled be the next big thing type thing, and then the next nodes like, oh, it's a conflict of interest we can represent you anymore So I was kind of left hanging I. Guess You could say in in that sense and that was a Wayne's fall like I love Wayne to death and I still mad cool to him but. There was just like some complications with certain people does not like I guess like me. With a Prima rappers on the label maybe. I'll even know comments I've been told I talk too much. Are We know we get it? Well, what is the name of the album? Called America's sweetheart. Okay, that's what we've been talking about this whole time Yup. Now, you wonder why people don't think your kid. That the. Kinda like oxymoron you know like I feel like I call the DAX people at anew like America's sweetheart and it's like a well I'm I'm the new America's sweetheart you know listen to what I'm talking about on this album, and that's what America should be the sugar be like a guy be like A. Whore, not calling you. Like to be something. More. I'm just sitting America's war. What kind of name is bad it's. GonNa. Make you feel like it's not a good girl. More on Oxymoron we did do one remix back here and call America's whore. Get on it I'll jump on that day because. Not, only fans. There we go. Thank you got everything mapped out. Now West Coast. We've been trying to win this for a minute. So we're excited to hear what you have coming up next. America's sweetheart we don't know the exact release date, but I feel like it's coming. Yes, is coming very soon very soon and sure you guys check out the new music that she's been putting out. It's a different type of bide.

What Works Now in Social Media Ads According to Big Data

"Can the mid March timeframe we saw a shift in the types of imagery or videos that marketers were using so There was a six hundred percent increase in the use of washing. Imagery adamantly hissing. What our guests. This we talked about there. The whole world has changed when we see that now in the ads and the creative be news and ads on facebook instagram. And beyond we say that art imitates life and I guess that's true. Ads IMITATE lies. It's funny how we take so many things for granted and not that we take anything in marketing for granted. I mean I think the people who are outside the industry don't realize you were using a picture or a hero shots whether it's at five degree axes or ten degree axes. What is the makeup of the people in the in the foreground or the background? But the fact that it's it's down to this level and that really the situation that we're in right now is having in fact impact on everything. I'm from the visual to the be roll to the words that we use that is. I think one of the huge. It's got out of this week's show it really interesting episode. If you any paid social and all you WANNA listen very very closely to this week's episode but rj who's the CEO and founder of an artificial intelligence company called pattern eighty nine which allows you to predict the success of your social media ads. Based on big data and machine learning he drops all kinds of crazy stats and you already heard a few of them about what has changed into the how people use imagery in social media ads as a repeat guest on the podcast. A really smart guys a thoughtful episode. I think you will enjoy it. Speaking of things that you will enjoy social pros listeners. This is such a timely advertisement for our friends at salesforce because RJ's companies all about artificial intelligence and predictive model lean. Every great artificial intelligence project starts at the great use case. And if you don't understand what you're GONNA use it for you probably not going to buy. Salesforce created an easy three question quiz to help you find your perfect a use case if you go to a B. I t dot L. Y. Slash sales force. A I it will allow you to very quickly. Identify the best possible use case for you to utilize artificial intelligence in your organization. Ai DoesN'T HAVE TO BE SCARY. Doesn't have to be checked out the slick and fast quiz to settle your own fears and see how others just like you making. It work be. It L. Y. Slashes SALES FORCE IS. Let's hear more from RJ. Taylor from pattern eighty nine this week. On the social pros podcast. He is back presumably better than ever from of episode three hundred and fifty one. We have uncovered in Earth are Jae Jao. You're the CEO and founder of one of my favorites startup. Companies in the world pattern eighty nine. Rj has forgotten more about how to optimize your social media advertising than I will ever know Rj. Welcome back to the show. Thanks appreciate it. That'd be bad for anybody. Who MISSED EPISODE? Three hundred and fifty one was that Adam that was in December of twenty eighteen bremmer keeping records and tallies which at this point mid pandemic fuels like eighteen. Eleven speaking of the old the old social When we didn't wash hands ever what? I read an article. This week's that. The price of oil in real dollars is cheaper now than it was for Abraham Lincoln which is not something that I would have expected. Yeah so anyway. Liquids has gone way up We'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE RJ back but for folks who might have missed episode. Three hundred fifty one R. J. explained to the social listeners. A little bit about eighty nine. And what you do please shirts. You're so We're a predictive creative performance platform in what we do is help social advertisers understand. What about their creative is driving the performance down? And I I've been using some Nielsen study from About two years ago that shows it created is responsible for at least forty seven percents of the performance and most marketers today spend all their time on audience or brand or those types of things which are important of course but created is about half of your performance. So it's You know really a critical piece. That marketers can dig into immediately. And that's what we do with night. And of course I think if you're listening to social pros you probably familiar with social media advertising. And and perhaps you test your crater from time to time and of course if you are a social media advertiser you could create X. number of versions of your ad and Muslim simultaneously. Facebook will eventually tell you which one performs better but pattern eighty nine. Does that predictively right so using a big data machine learning ai? All the things that we care about Tells you what is likely to work as opposed to having to do all that testing yourself. Y- were over ninety five percent accurate at predicting the success of a social media in we call it a simulation so facebook has some great. Ab testing tools other testing tools. But that doesn't account for the time energy effort in the creation of that content. So if you're looking for a recipe of what will work or let's say you have a dozen or one hundred images or videos as well as a number of different copies for your headline and body and understand what will work or what could work will predict them for you and get your creative team off on the right track as well as your performance team. Happy because you're creative actually is driving the performance that you wanted it to be and it's all based on this data co OP. That has over twelve hundred brands now. There's one hundred fifty billion impressions that are machine learning algorithms on a daily basis. That's more star. More data than there are stars in the Galaxy. And so we can predict with over ninety percent accuracy and especially now in this corona virus land wits about efficiency and are we putting our dollars to the right way. R. A. R. Dollars in the right way. And you know there's not really time to evening in and actually as we'll talk about maybe later is like any AB test you're doing. This week is no longer relevant. That things are changing literally week over week as we get more news as we're experiencing different things so whatever you learned three weeks ago it doesn't work anymore and it feels like we're on his roller coaster ride so We'll performance and that's in Warwick. Where when you think about the array of creative elements that make a difference. And we'll talk about this specifically in a moment is united to how many of those truisms regardless and how many of those are maxims. That are category specific You know that's We're getting to the idea of Best Practices Sorta than your question in I like in Best Practices to understanding. Kind of what is average in. I would urge anybody away from looking at best practices solely to drive their creative strategy because best practices will get you average results and what we're all trying to find is performance. Aligarh the thing that will get a promotion. That will actually this. Keep us in business Keep my job Q. My agency on online customer As well as getting promotion or you know really be a part of the rebound or find that thing. That's next so What I've been surprised about. Is that each brand even in the same category. I'm outliers that their specific audience. will take advantage of and in an easy way to think about. It is that whatever works for coke doesn't work for Pepsi because they're different brands even though they both saw cola if the machine says the best practices to use red in your images well Maybe that's true but we're Pepsi and we're not going to be advertising behalf coke or vice versa so There are some best practices Can Tell you for example that the best practices to refresh your creed and every ten point four days. I can tell you the best. Practice of top. Advertisers is to have at least five ads in an asset to have two point three sentences in your headline to have Certain emojis etc. Those are best practices or standards at a cross. Lots of advertisers but each individual brand is unique each individual audiences unique. And we're all trying to a little bit of a different brand story differentiating ourselves. So therefore the creative recipe that works for one advertiser is not gonna be the same and always changing and that's where the machine learning can help us benefit and really amplify those differentiation points RJ. It's great to have you back on the show and I'm always fascinated by by pattern. Eighty-nine does and I think you know the time is now. I think in terms of the value of technology you had you just said something creative recipe which is a perfect segue into a common question. I wanted to ask you a few weeks ago. Jay and I recorded a a podcast with US Stephanie. Dolinsky who's ahead of social media and PR for Johnson. Bill Sausage in one of things we ask her about was in this time of Kobe eighteen. Are you seeing kind of interest in different recipes in the tens of thousands of recipes that they have on the Johnson Bill? Sausage as she said. Yeah what do you think? Is that many sausage recipes but boy there's a lot there's a lot of things you can do with a sausage Better WATCH MYSELF EXPLICIT RATING. Here on the PODCAST. She said that it is comfort food and it was the heavier more caloric types of a recipes. That seems to be over indexing right now. I thought that was really interesting and probably not surprising. My question for you is as we see. Social media usage increase during this cover nineteen situation as we see media usage shift. Are there any things that you're seeing that you're a I is doing or figuring out for your customers that surprises you than what it was recommending and suggesting to the point? You brought up about uniqueness even just a few months ago. Yeah I mean all all sorts of stuff I'm really stands out Were publishing data really on a daily basis as we're uncovering some of that Early in the Look in the mid March timeframe. We saw a market in the types of imagery or videos that markers using so there was a six hundred percent increase in the use of washing imagery so our computer vision can look and identify water running over a face or hands or an object and we saw washing increased by six hundred percent interpretation And then we saw thirty percent decrease in the images or videos of people who are holding hands hugging kissing the computer vision excise a category called making out which sounds very middle school to me. But you can see that you know the direct or more obvious impacts are actually showing up in the way that we're displaying them back to the consumer so big groups or lots of Snuggling not something. That people really want to do right now because of fears around Corona Virus But more surprising things did have come out so on the recipe ciders digging and we published some data Looking at What's going on in the food world so There's a three hundred thirteen percent increase in cost per click for ads that show or mentioned protein as well as cost per. Click away down right so. Cpa underway down way down so in social. Advertising can take advantage of that but we're seeing some categories actually ticked up so For a sausage or a Johnson broader a meat provider Those Going up for Protein or recipes in his thirty percent. Four healthy Or a copy mentions healthy We actually have seen some interesting trends on sugar alcohol on the presence of alcohol. The one that's actually Was surprising for me. But kinda not given where we are. Is that iphones or phones. In general are up over two thousand percents in their utilization. It's a sad thing that Now thirty nine percent of ads on social how a computer or a computer or phone in them and so we're in this isolation tank at home in so advertisers are kind of speak to us as we are which is where in front of a computer screen or in front of the phone. Were not outside. We're not in groups. Went on pedestals concerts bars. That have stopped instead. You know the situation we're in is the art reflects life type thing and so now thirty nine percent of outside the Electronic device which feels like even more pollution so in your research at pattern eighty nine. I should tell you switch oppose listeners. Argentina's team are putting out new reports and analysis Very very frequently used if you go to pattern eighty nine dot com which is pattern eight nine dot com and go to their blog You'll get updates on this. I think your research had shown recently that that this big spike in the presence of of iphones or mobile phones of any kind in ad creative was also simultaneously decrease in televisions shown ad created which I thought was really interesting because I think both are way up right. Netflix ANNOUNCED REPORT. Recently that fourteen million new subscribers unless thirty days or some crazy number like that is so certainly. A lot of television is being watch no sports but a lot of television so I find that really fascinating everybody's GonNa lean into the phone side of it as opposed to the TV side of it. Yeah Yeah I mean. There's there's a you know mazing trends like that. One of the things we were talking about earlier is just Airbus. You can see that Myers like matted down here I gotta get hurt. Ironically make sister owns lawn So she rides zoo with her. She always tells me how Batman Look So. Please forgive. That's an area. Yeah yeah well you know it's sort of love you all right. Yeah we've seen Criticize you criticize her. Facebook ads and like yes. Yes No haircuts are up three three percent right now scissors or images accessories up thirty six percent so you know there's like some things that are kind of obvious about it but for a social ad marketer if they're scissors in your ad and maybe you're selling scissors or haircut. You might want to take him out because you might be paying more be inadvertently because you're competing effectively with content that is hooking in one of these trans. So there's some interesting things like kind of watch out for If you're putting a phone in your ad. Are you actually paying more? Are you competing With with those that you might not otherwise be with So those are some of the questions that we can learn by using Peter Visual to pull out some of these trends rj from your vantage point. And that's kind of like set this up from your vantage point. We know as you said that all add add costs are down. Cpm'S JUST AVERAGE ON THIRTY SECOND AD units. All all down right now. Are you finding an certainly within social? That means you can get more bang for your buck. You'RE GONNA GET MORE IMPRESSIONS. More clicks more views for for that same dollar. Are you seeing from your vantage point with your clients and customers that companies are deciding to reduce the overall amount of marketing paid marketing? They're doing. Are they allocating more to social than perhaps to other Digital or or non traditional media. What does that mix up in makeup? Look like right now as we're in the middle of this. Yeah well I mean it really is. Customer specific about three fourths of our customers It it feels a little bit because we have a lot of E. Commerce retail customer feels certainly businesses normal but like spend as normal Where marketers are really trying to take advantage of. What's going on then? There's twenty five percent of our customers who are trying to figure out You know do. We want to take advantage of the top funnel an opportunity build our audience right now Or do we WANNA pause our spend all completely until we figure out a little bit more. What's going on now? I'll say that that that comment about a week or two old I in terms of the pause because what I feel like is happening. Now is that Everyone felt like there were any free for all PAS. Let's get it such a situation figured out. Now we've kind of moved into these rebound or new normal. Or whatever I want to give it to it Like what are we going to do about it? So we're kind of the now. What phase in the last week and a half ish so those twenty five percent of we were in a pause or reduction are now trying to figure out. What do we do? So we're doing a lot of an analytics for customer is a lot of new predictions on what if scenarios which are this that meanwhile the rest of our customers who have adapted their creative strategies. So I think the seventy five twenty five percent Mix It to answer your question and on. I've gotten used whatever this is. We've got a bill businesses so people are moving forward. Rj One thing that we're seeing a lot of analysis that we do for clients at convince and convert is some changes in ideal publishing windows morning organics and the paid side. But historically you would you would say are at the best time to post. Mathematically proven his ex now. We're seeing in a lot of really interesting cases that nights and weekends and things that would have been non traditional. Publishing Windows are actually outperforming Daytime windows because people have little kids at home trying to align school and computers tied up and people are trying to wind down in the evenings with a dose of social and and and while social media usage appears to be pretty manifestly up across the board the time during the day the people are using social also shifted and so what we keep telling our clients and I think you'll agree is look man whatever you think your success for me to was before. March first does it matter and I mean and I don't mean like you should tweak it and retest it doesn't matter at all you know everybody is back to square zero which pointed to is super scary because we spent two years figuring out what works super scary but also the best in in some ways the greatest opportunity you will ever have to to recast reconstitute reshaped. What you do in social and perhaps end up at a better place. You would have been to be you know. I think that's why I wrestle at the best practices comment or like just the idea. Best Practices it just like those. Don't matter anymore there. I mean some of them still do but a lot of them aren't best practices anymore I worked at exact target In Morgan Stewart was my boss. At the time in Morgan Published a study on the best day to send email and accused as and then everybody started sitting there emails on Tuesdays and then it became Wednesdays and then everybody started sitting there eating meals on Wednesdays on then we stopped publishing study because we we were like basically leading the witness into what data published. And you know in the same way if some of those best practices lead to increase competition in the increase constant decrease performance. Because we're trying to follow the best practice or whatever but I think that today's like Markelle social marketers in today's world have never had a better opportunity with this pattern interruption than to do all of the things that they've always wanted to try. This is the time and traversing on sale right. Yes Oh it's like now's the time was pattern eruption like where that you couldn't get your idea across the board. Are you in? You're getting blocked because somebody was telling you that that doesn't work. I mean kind of kind of all available so we see yeah although although I would say in fairness the one counterargument I would have to. That is you've got this window of time where ED prices are down. So it's GONNA cost you less to experiment and and you don't have the same kind of pre existing behavior patterns they're governing success. We've had in the past so you could now reconstitute success in Kobe world and that at some point God willing we're no longer inchoate world. Then you gotta go back and do it all again and figure out the new. Because I don't think you can say the pay. The ones that are true today are going to necessarily be true forever you know. That's that's either got to embrace testing beginner detest as we always tell clients. You'll never done right. What's the next test? There's never an answer. It's just the next question and the answer to that Clinton and the new normal. Yeah Yeah Yeah. It's like forgive the I mean it's it's an easy sell for pattern. Eighty nine in that world where. Ai Can detect the patterns. That are that are happening as they're happening so we don't have that time. Detached than any test is a opportunity. There's an opportunity posture. So that's that's really going about helping marketers right now. We can simulate all the different versions of these you wanted to do. We'll tell you what works and we can do it again next week and you'd have to do another test so but yeah. I think you're right. It is this but whatever work before isn't GonNa work when we continue to figure out what was going to work along the way at RJ. I want to go back to To some of those amazing insights that you shared the this idea that you're seeing less pictures of television screens in more of the IPHONES. You're seeing less pictures of people holding hands or or kissing for for obvious reasons. I think you WANNA stack latte on top of what we're seeing at least at the national level and certainly in social with the what. I'll call the we are here for you messaging that we're seeing where we saw so many top brands and it trickled down very quickly pivot from their standard called. Action ads. You know whether you're selling auto insurance or or widgets to tell the we are here for you message and I think your data totally supports that. At least what's resonating with the public's what you can bill is certainly in. Your data is certainly in some way alive indicator but it's also a leading indicator. What can we take from that to help US UNDERSTAND WHEN WE AS MARKETERS? Communicators can start to kind of move move forward and I think there's there's a sensitivity towards that it sells for us. We've been talking to all of our customers really kind of about about three things. First off. You got to stabilize your company or stabilize your marketing. We've all got to get back to work. Your customers have got to get back to work and then we've gotta go back to growing our business. What can the data from pattern eighty nine? Tell us in terms of what those marketing messages are. As we kind of transitioned that as Jay said the new normal. Yeah you know I think there's there's kind of a two part one. Is the the computer vision as well as machine? Learning Algorithms can find what's emerging as a trend so Like the USA words like healthy or the use of the term. Kobe bid or corona virus or Predict how the inclusion exclusion of those types of terms will impact performance in conjunction with the presentation of images or video. So let's say we wanted to Celebrate our first responders or frontline healthcare workers by resenting pitchers of doctors and nurses with masks on some sort of message about that we can actually predict how that would resonate with our customers. And tell you what the CPN the CPC or the cost per whatever. The case is with over ninety percent accuracy. So I can tell you what the metric would be that what I can't tell you how it human will respond to it and that is where the like machine learning can do a lot in. I run a platform MIRENA. Ai Driven Company. But there's a human in this and the human needs to understand is this. Does this come across as authentic is it? Empathetic is it even ethical. Is it kind of ambulance chasing like you know like? Is it appropriate? So we can tell you what the metric is. The number is and I can tell you that number over ninety. Five percents statistical certainty. I can't tell you how humans GonNa responded so I think it's a combination of machine learning and then just straight up human Like empathy in a time that the World Cup. I mean. I've never seen anything like this. You know like we've never seen so. The combination has to be their machines. Can't do it all. It's funny. I WANNA I WANNA thi this up to to both of you. Just as as consumers and not as marketing geniuses and executives. I Watch TV ADS now. And certainly I'm getting a little fatigued that we are here for you messages. It's Kinda Overdone. Even as I watched just one of these ads and you see a spokesperson it was for a bank and you can tell it was obviously shot and months and months ago but it was the the voice over talent and he was walking across the City Street and they were of course. City street was packed with people and they were all certainly within six feet of each other and my brain kind of triggered. Mu. That's that's that's not right. That had nothing to do with the message and had nothing to do with with the call to action. But I was sensitive to that and I'm curious if you guys have those same types of you know whoa moments and secondly are we going to have to kinda point of patterns nine revisit. Every piece of b-roll footage in how we approach will bureau footage for the foreseeable future. I J I think so. I think you're you're like our alarms go off when we see people who aren't social distancing for we see people not with masks on with mass own like like I've kids and make sure my kids masks joy. I need to have my kids worrying now as we go for a bike ride through the neighborhood. Like that's like a real question that my wife and I ask and so therefore when I see those images on social or in video or even my car window but the alarm twelve I have a question which just in general is like. Should people be wearing masks. While they're driving their cars like is that thing should we do? I don't know in I think as a human that there are like those Like Lincoln Ensue. Rival talks about like those leaf moments. Either GONNA turn in or turn your out. it's and I think because empathy sent your brain is going to be associated those blink moments and how you like. Maybe a Kenyan. I'm not even able to verbalize it. In the way about how I feel I think is is a big amount J. What do you think we are conditioned to to recognize patterns premature company? And then when we see something that doesn't fit that pattern we we notice it. It's just it's it's how word of mouth is how it's how everything works. And so we have now been reconditioned largely to expect one thing to be the norm and when we see something. That's not that thing then than it rings. That tiny Alarm Bell. I was reading the newspaper today. I I do read a printed newspaper Actually teuku newspapers every day. I I sorry I'm I'm old but there was a an image in this paper of Matt Damon. Who was outside a cafe in suburban Dublin where he has been sequestered for many many weeks and it was a picture of him with the owner of the cafe. She asked me to take a picture but they were doing the regular Griffin Grin. Kind of hug thing. No mass says I I know cove. It is really a significant significant problem in Ireland. And that's fantastic for them but just the image itself was so striking to me. Instantaneous I turn the page. Oh that's a picture. I haven't seen for a while. Somebody sort of hugging a celebrity. So Jad point yeah. I think it's going to be a while before. We we then reprogram our ourselves back to the way we once were in fact Adam. We'll talk about this. Next week's episode of Social Pros. Our guests are going to be on. T. Ho and Laura Antique both from our strategy team convincing convert. The three of US collaborated on a Webinar. Recently on eleven best practices for social. And the things you need to change in one of those was to to Redo your entire image. Yeah it'll be interesting to in fact we had a great example. We'll talk about it next week to from Schwinn bicycle so I pulled two samples of their instagram account. And and on a Monday. It was somebody writing their bicycle. With their wife or girlfriend et CETERA regular side-by-side Bicycle writing. This is fine where dirt road and then the following. Monday one week later is almost the exact same product shot but it was one dude on a bike. No other people's and I was like huck good for them for being that Nimble a seven days apart and you know that was not an accident. I rj one thing. I wanted to ask you about Outside of Pandemic Ville is about ASD format so many times clients of ours. Convincing converting social guests certainly social pose listeners. And thanks to all of you out there listening to this show while you're at home wherever you are wonder about all. The different ad formats that facebook and instagram offer. Now from Soto's two videos two carousels to every other thing that they've concocted. What are you seeing as As effective from your client. I know you don't necessarily always test formats against one another and that way. But but what is your advice counsel today? Yeah we will be. Do we predicted against everything You know the quote best practice would be to just published one. He's a content and then allow the platform defined. It's home What we've seen is actually a lot different than that That story based content. If you actually create content or stories you can really over perform By having content specifically for stories. Something that we've seen with covert Messenger and because of the Messenger is now up messenger optimization or content optimization specifically for Messenger also is a giant opportunity that some marketers are taking advantage of The other thing that's interesting is that there's kind of a reverse mobile effect here Where DESKTOP VERSUS MOBILE We used to think I will just publish once and then have it applied across desktop mobile Because we aren't in the car checking our phone at a stop light anymore as much or on a public peace of public transportation etc. The mobile experience needs to be reimagined and trying to think about the way we use it. Think about it was like a seamless experience across desktop and mobile which is still the case but that I might rouse mobile but then by on desktop Or by smurfs or whatever the case is those need to be reevaluated as well so I think the three opportunities are stories messenger and then thinking about what is your desktop versus mobile strategy from a content perspective and those are all beyond best practices like opportunities to find our own a home run from creative strategy perspective. I love that. Thank you for sharing. What are the other things that you guys published relatively recently? Was this idea of a two to one photo to video ratio. Can you explain a little bit for the audience? I think it's an important point for social partners. Yeah a lot of times Marketers have long play. The video does better which is true on average But then you start digging into like waves atop on all mid funnel bottom of funnels just for retargeting etcetera and we benchmark all of the data across the twelve hundred brands who connected to pattern. Eighty nine Those hundred billion impressions to see. What are the things that the best advertisers are demanding and one of them is a two to one ratio in terms of image to video? So you don't about stout a ton of video instead. He's got a two to one ratio in terms of images to videos and we published a bunch of other those types of things on a creative datacenter dot COM And we can poll on data specifically for you but that is the overall best practice appreciate that Adam. Are the insights that you shared are are extremely valuable and I know. Our listeners are going to To Re- listen to this and take some notes or go to social says dot com and read the transcriptions because Abi Sites you've given. I want to go back to a question. I asked you back with the last time you were on the show in December of twenty eighteen but tweak it a little bit and I'm just curious you know we've we've the time between December two thousand eighteen and today's record this in April twenty twenty notwithstanding the current pandemic situation. We're in is a long time for a guy and I'm going to lead the witness here but presumed that. Ai especially a pattern. Eighty nine has gotten a lot smarter since. And if that's the case what what aspect of it do you think has really gotten smarter and able to To make better recommendations are one aspect of the intelligence that you say wow I. I'm really impressed with where this is compared to where it was a year and a half ago. Yeah I really point to the computer vision side of things men. If you're not familiar computer vision is the way that machine mimics human vision and identifies. What has been a picture or a video in so if it was looking at a picture of me you would see There's a man glasses not smiling. Plaid Shirt Door those types of objects but haircut suspect haired aging Nobody can identify. I'm still I'm not in motion but it can also now identify things like what's top right of my frame what's in the bottom. Left of my frame is their textbook. Overlay Am I happy. Am I sad what emotion will be put on this individual It can do all sorts of things like estimate my age as well as My race Those are two things that we don't do it again. Just because of the ethical questions regarding them but it can do stuff like that and you know There's even a out there that can recognize me as RJ failure and then a pen bat to all sorts of other data so when some really exciting as well as potentially scary things That Really emerged in the last Meeting to twenty four months that resent new and exciting opportunities for MARKETERS TO GET SMARTER. How to connect with their brand with their consumers Get smarter about the creative decisions and always talk about on a the connection between the creative team and the performance team. It's not like don draper versus the performance marketer. It's they they have to talk in the same language in the computer. Vision really provides that connection to say. Here's what the The Algorithm is identifying in your creative. Yes you had a great idea. Let's figure out how to make that. That stat idea work on In a world of of Algorithms I've I've Written as well as publishing stuff called beauty is in the eye of the algorithm because we can make something beautiful that doesn't perform Or we can make something beautiful that also performs and that's really what Marcus have to do and You know beauty. The can't get prioritized on the facebook. Algorithm is gorgeous. But you're going out of business also A computer vision of the there. I think are really the underpinnings of what's driving the biggest change that I've seen it's fascinating to see where you're at next. You have you back on on this show. It'll be episodes. Whatever four hundred seventy seven or something that planner? We'll figure it out. Thanks again for being here. We could ask you the questions we've asked everybody including you Back in episode three fifty one December two thousand eighteen. If you could give somebody one tip somebody who's looking to become a social pro? What would you tell I? Think If you're not gonNA use a apple like patty my tip but you can print off Or just you. All of the the The twin images if you can just be like eyeball your own content and identify. What is the most prevalent Object or dimensions of those and then apply twenty five percent of your budget to something else so like find new patterns new outliers introduce them into it and you can effectively be your own computer vision by just eyeballing what you're seeing consistently. Now's the time it's never been cheaper To to try those outside I would. I would go after mimicking what the computers are doing and buy new opportunities in this time where it's really cheap to do so. That's good advice last question. If you could do a video call with any living person who would it be Practice a lot of pressure on this question on like the you know the thing that just came to mind was I want to. I would love to do a video call with the person. I'm not sure if it's a man or woman who's in charge of making the decision on the Olympics. Like that person like tell me about like. Did you get pressured to move it did you? Did you always WANNA move it? Like what data are you using? What athletes called you raging? I'm just I would be curious about a month like a monumental decision like that I think that'd be pretty interesting. Yeah I mean talk about something with huge consequences and Gosh you think about these athletes who you know and so important especially in some sports to to peak at the right time. They've got twenty one months training at all so that you're very during that week. Yarbrough how `bout we do it in a year? You know what it's GonNa work. I mean you know sausage. The next day you've right. Yeah P athlete to put off Grad school off turning pro off of graduation. The grid shirted. There's all the sponsorship dollars. I mean it is guided. That is You know there's just like a an existential illness. June want the actual chairman of the International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach Rj.

Chris definitely one zero and we have a rotating gas for a third and this week we have multiple winner with an asterik on maybe a couple of those winds pre-christmas. Welcome pre freely an asterisk. Frankly i would rather one zero than maybe one. Maybe not that good. We won't have to get into people that have followed rescue club. All they have to do is listen. I is that there are very debatable. I don't wanna sound like donald trump and election but it could very well be pre christian and foresees total landscaping. That's all i'm just gonna make you a little bit says i don't wanna sound like donald trump. Just wear that around and you can stop saying you can just say when you look at like rudy. Giuliani with die down. Well you guys aren't listening for terrible jokes about election or are jokes about recipe club itself. You are listening to hear us. Give pragmatic advice about the do's and don'ts about our opinions about these recipes and this week because prio won the last respite club or that's debatable. But she one and on the babies so we all recipes. She landed on goza and we have each come with a ios. Rsp can you guys go over. The rules really quickly chris. And do you wanna talk about joe and what it means to you but yang the rules please. Yeah so as always preempt dave and myself each chose one a recipe and we'll get into what a user is in a moment but We chose from the ten point. Four million plus recipes that. Turn up when you google this We actually came with three three pretty different recipes from three different sources. I think but let's talk about gazza. Generally i think priya at the end of the last episode when when it landed on gizeh you asked for some clarification on what exactly aghios is. Yeah because my understanding is that it's japanese. But what's the difference. Trine josiah and say like a manu or a chinese dumpling disc are always. Pan-fried is always steamed. Mijo knowledge is very limited. So i think without without much support for this And with no linguistics. Background gazza as. We're talking about them today. Is the japanese word for pot sticker. I think that it probably derives what the fuck is a pot sticker. And what's the etymology of that word. All day they literally stick to pause came up with that. It wasn't a japanese chinese korean I think actually that the chinese term guac year which is what we call. Stickers means it sticks to the pot so in this instance. The english is is acceptable. I always without my mo- my fake news mine was like that's definitely not of asian origin. But you know what it is a little bit like of those situations where like a literal translation. Sounds pretty goofy right like people the dish mouth-watering chicken the chinese dish. That's you know costa g so it's supposed to be like it's the numbing pep record. The the the the like the numbing and the in the hot dog makes your mouth water but people always translate that to literally say saliva chicken and it's just like that doesn't work and and i think it's sort of the same thing at play here. Ching well the only thing that americans can understand what we're trying to talk about. Is the minnesota marketing invention ants on a law. My god are you really going to talk about ants on a log again. Dave just giving you an analogy guys because guess what. If you translated that to chinese they would probably be like ship without have with that name. They would just be like this gross. Why don't you guys eat climbing trees on the other hand. That is very delicious dish. But okay pot stickers. Because i hate it when i see the name pot sticker. Does that bother you guys at all. Well do you hate it because you felt like it was just the western world giving a pervert aleksey you know. Call it what it is you know. I don't call. Kimchi fiery red pickled cabbage. I don't you know like we don't call sauerkraut lactose. I mean unless you're a fancy restaurant that he's a whole nother conversation. The word laco fermented meant it would even hit menus. Good god. But that's what i'm trying to say. Is the name pot sticker to me. Yes its origins mean pot sticker in mandarin. But why has that translated to american. I'm into english and sauerkraut. Housing does a hasn't pasta. 'cause you see that i think he'd go to tgi. Fridays and you see like pot stickers that pisses me off so i wanna be sort of upfront about miami ignorance when it comes to goes a when we're talking about sort of my background with goza I grew up in the suburbs of dallas. My exposures to it were at pf. Changs and the cheesecake factory where it was on the menu as pot stickers and they often served like duck sauce on the side. But like that being said. I feel like i've really come out. Swinging these past podcasts. Like i love goza like even bad does a i. I love select lives Clear clear shit. Well let's talk about. Let's talk about a good and a bad goes so and and and actually our own personal backgrounds with these so pretty. You're a little bit new to making gizeh or pot stickers or jazzy or guava I have a long history of dumpling. Making i will admit that my family didn't really make or is it just to piss you off. I say postures over and over again. Here dave pot stickers. Frankly would we ate pox secret as a kid. They usually came frozen out of the costco. Ling ling bag with a little panda bear on it That was probably the pasta create most at home but we made we fold. I have folded many many thousands of dumplings in my day. And i never really made this japanese gizeh. And chang can you. Do you have an idea of what sort of defines a japanese versus. Chinese goes up. I have again like most things. No historical data to support one of them about say. This is effectively the recipe club. Qa on version. How it all starts. I believe that everything. Culinary related came from china and at least from asia. Joe's is jao tsy. Madhu is a version of drowsy so there are some things all over asia but as it goes to get to japan that goes a is a thinner wrapper and feel that the farces typically some kind of pork ginger cabbage down seems to be the the the universal farce but in terms of the shape. The japanese are almost always a little bit more delicate in my opinion Korean dumplings montjeu vary quite a bit throughout the region and a lot of the dumpling comes from china. So you have longman dues the different kinds of mongoose and they're very very similar to chinese dumplings. In fact. I think you'd be hard pressed to say. There's a difference other than the names and ingredients. Because oftentimes you'll see things. Like kimchi. In the dumpling and they're all very very similar. It's like i don't even know where comparison because they're very slim owner yet. There are a little bit different. But i'd always argue that. The japanese goza is probably the worst of the three countries. They don't care about they care about it but they don't care about it. But how prevalent is the pan fried versus steamed dumpling. in korean. Do do you think it's almost always steamed or boiled and the one month do is the bigger ones they're giant. They're amazing but they're getting their chinese in origin. And a lot of times you get goza in in in japan at least from my experience war at rahman shops or chinese restaurants that served chinese. Food rarely would you ever get in a chinese. I mean japanese restaurant and before the rami and boom where you have. Tom coates ueberroth. And you know came in and all this other stuff. The rom in shop in japan were all chinese based. And you'd always get aside iota or chowhan so all of this is all a variation of something that would come from china. The interest and the reason. Why i asked you chang if the korean madhu as panfil boiled in is Because i think craig me. If i'm wrong. But i think the only dumpling culture of japan is like the pan-fried gives they don't do steamed or boiled joe's a really like if you're going to go around the he really only have the pan fried version So i think that's a defining characteristic of the japanese gila is that it's pan-fried. I think you're right. You do see in on the street and in a lot of the convenient convenient. Marts nick oman. Which is the the giants steamed bun the bun. But that's that's a very different kind of dumpling. But a dumpling nonetheless so yeah as far as like the gel to like descendants. I think like the the pan-fried is the only one that you really find in japanese cozine. It's also like you said chang. I think generally the ideas and it's much thinner. Wrapper a northern chinese dumpling. Which again i think. The thinner wrapper lends itself better to to pan frying anyway. So that's that's what goes it is. Should we start talking a little bit about the three recipes. We've brought to the table here. Today wait wait. I've been to the museum. Well let's talk about this. This woman a lot of things. We filmed in ugly delicious. Never made it right. We filmed so much. we feel. So much and things edited out. But we went in the dumpling episode to yokohama to the yokohama. Kyoto our museum and we had like he's the food museums in. Japan are amazing. Because whether you're the romney and shop rama josie museum. They literally take the best of every regions arrived and they bring the operators to the museum and they like just you know it's like the best food court so you have. That sounds amazing. All from all over japan. And i spent like five hours. They're just nothing my face because you gotta take breaks but the one thing i realized as as delicious as they all are when i i'm not trying to besmirch goes i. I love goza. I just think it's not as good as it could be right. That's all i think i'm with you. Though i mean i think my platonic ideal of a dumpling. Just across all dumplings is a thicker chewier skin. It's probably steamed or boiled which is not what deal is but i think the photonic ideal of aghios is a thin wrapper that eats well. Meaning the filling doesn't outlast the rapper. The rapper doesn't outlasts riling. I think it's gotta be crispy. And i think it's gonna be juicy. Can i add one thing. And then hopefully we can get started. Just as another difference is what do you think is more understood from a western perspective. The chinese dumpling. The the you know the wonton or goza am. I don't think i like i. Frankly don't think that americans have like any nuance of understanding between. I think flames americans because we're all over that's true. I always call my mom out for that. Yeah i don't think that among people who are not parts those communities i don't know if there's a lot of nuance in their understanding because from the american chinese restaurant you have the the time that has wrapped like a tortellini. Deep fried i've been those entire life delicious but dot is certainly more chinese and the funny thing about goza is you. Don't where do you buy it. You know where do you buy goes Other than leaving like fried. Like where do you see goes on menu. You mean steamed. Possibly you mean is it or is it just pot stickers right but when is the last time you guys actually bought accusa in a restaurant for for me. It was at those hibachi restaurants where they do the onion volcanoes. Yeah shoutouts ben. Hana but it's a strange thing because it's something you rarely fine. But it's so synonymous listen food culture. Everyone knows that josie is. I think the speaks more to the kind of western ideals right. It's it's got brown senate's crispy that steamed and boiled dumplings fall into large category of foods cooked in water that come out white that a like western cultures aren't really down with. Yeah i think. And i think also the sort of boiled dumplings. They have more of a chew to them. And i feel like that that chewy texture is not as appreciated on this side of the world as it is in the east or are we ready to get into these recipes to talk about the three chosen here all to a quick overview of what we've chosen and then we'll get into one by one so I think my recipe is probably the most classical japanese. I was store Stolen from nalco tocchet. Moore's instagram Who is the author of the very excellent nabi. Cookbook and fronts tohru kitchen. Excellent source of japanese ceramics. She posted this sort. Of incidentally i think maybe like a day or two before or after we had chosen goza And it's a really straightforward pork and cabbage classic dumpling from her family Chang and preah both elected to choose vegetable vegetarian or vegan. Goza chang's from just one cookbook. Who is a very very very popular. Japanese food blocker Here in my neck of the woods in san francisco. The filling is tofu. cabbage mushrooms carrots. Onion and priya chose a roasted kubota and vegetable dumpling from andrea win Another excellent cookbook writer. This one came from her blog. Right from via world gap from viet world. Kitchen and It's a sort of multi-purpose. Dumpling davis. Wait mitch shit on this red. Very mitch mcconnell. Move of what you just did right. No not you chris. What three it did andrea win. One of the great cookbook authors of our generation and you chose a recipe. That i did like. Oh for sure she. She definitely chose like an unimpeachable author. Very mitch. mcconnell of you very very very mitch. Mcconnell we'll get to my recipe later who we talking about article. I'll go first. I obviously wanted to choose a traditional goza and again for all of my joe's talk. I probably more than any other something in my life. I lived in japan. I would all the time. Because they're cheap and affordable and the traditional feeling is pork and cabbage or league some variant of the routes in northern china. But my goal was to be like the korean turtle ship and not win or lose. I wanted to choose a recipe simply to defeat. Prea and i had to choose a vegetarian recipe knowing creates me. She hates chicken turkey. She ham shade shades searched potato. That doesn't have texture or delicious. I was like. I have to get back to my roots. I gotta play my game. My game isn't trying to win out. My game is to beat other people to lose. So i had to choose a recipe that i didn't care about. What a crazy dave. I literally turned. Seth was like. This may not be the winning recipe but as long as dave loses so my chose one of the most popular vegetarian ones on the internet. And i wanted to go. Because i knew she choose some dumpling. Got in the head of pre it. This is a lot like a on analysis of paper. Rock scissors like which is the ultimate game of a chance. Because you have to understand your phone. And i thought pre was gonna throw rock and she did and not a surprise and also a twist. She wasn't going to do a traditional vegetarian. I almost knew she was going to choose some different variation of vegetarian. Dumpling and she did so. I wanted to go with a traditional vegetarian. Dumpling farce. I made it it's fine. I know it's not going to win. But i know it's better than curious. That's all i have to say. I have nothing else. That can i can. I talk r- recipe. Okay so First dave jokes on you because when it comes to dumplings. I like meat dumplings. Quite a bit edgy dumplings so reversal of fortune. So i know very little about dumplings. But someone i know who does andrew newman. Who wrote a book all about dumplings. I have made many of recipes. I love her book vietnamese food at each day. I love what she has done for vietnamese cooking and more broadly asian cooking in america. So i was like. I think she's my she's my gal. I just gotta find a good recipe. But it was hard to find she. She makes a lot of regional variations. So i think this was the one that felt the closest to a josiah. I think i read like six different dumpling recipes from hers so i chose this one because it felt the most goes alike. Not because it was the one where the filling sounded the most delicious but when i started reading her blog post about it. You know the like squash dumplings are saying they are delicious. It is squash season. Sabas like okay you know. It's the fall squash. Dumpling is probably not gonna taste bad. It'll probably dave's veggie dumpling. So that's fine with me dave. You wanted to start. So let's talk about your recipe. Can you talk about the methodology of the veggie vegan. Dumpling that you brought to the table. Taking notes pre ticket notes. She's ready man. Who i notes on your skill back the the the warfare here and do something for the listeners. Chang talk about your dumplings a great recipe. You should look it up. It's basically two kinds of mushrooms with a firm tofu as you're of farce garlic ginger. That's pretty much it in a cabbage in there as well red and green and it took me a while to understand why the red cabbage was there. Now i understand once you puree everything together and you cook it. It looks like a pork farce. It really mock. It's like a mock pork farce. It's also imperative to make the sauces. She suggests because when. I first read the recipe. I was like i would just put that stuff. In the in the dumpling farce. But you don't so. I thought it was really good. Because a lot of flavors that are not in the in the mixture itself. She has as a dumpling sauce. Goza sauce and it's a very laid out step by step recipe. I will tell you. I did not follow the recipe. Exactly because the pictures are so good. I was like why can cheat. That's that i can cut that. Go here and i can tell you right off the bat i made one giant giant misstep. That really didn't change the flavor but the cooking process was a dangerous throughout the process of cooking. She suggests that you drain the liquid in each of the steps from the tofu to the cabbage to the final mixture. Years is draining everything. I lay sie man. That i am none of that and i pay the price in the fourth of july greece fireworks display. I started to pan. Fry them without a lid. It was a painful. And i paid the price for not following this great recipe. Was there too much liquid. And you're dealing with what you're talking about. Yes a brand my burn the hell outta myself. I remember what. I swatted. My kitchen with greece everywhere. Take like an hour to clean up so we hear on recipe club make dumb decisions. So you don't have to do. Not cook done dave but it still turned out great. Did you do all so the one thing with this recipe is it is a beyond the sort of like draining though the liquid each ingredient. There's a lot of chopping a lot of dicing. Why did you do any of that. I put it straight into the thermodynamics. I figured yeah rock shop straight in. And i put it on the dough setting which does like a very rough rough thing and it came out. Great saved me a lot of time. Mainly because i've been looking at my knife realizing it needs to be sharpened and i refuse to do it playing a game of chance i'm lazy. I'm a home cook now. This was too much chopping. That's literally that was my comment. I said so much. Chopping and i ultimately turned to the food processor because there was just so much to do but i just felt like it was so much chopping but the ratios of the ingredients. I i would have taken a different approach. Found it was too much chopping. And the payout was like a good dumpling but it was like a little earthy for me even with dipping sauces. What do you like in life companies in rainbows too. I feel like i have complemented many things about many recipes in recipe club. I will like. I said like i will eat most dumplings like i polish off a plate of these. But if we're splitting hairs here which is you know. We're trying to find people the best recipes. I've eaten a lot of vegetables up things. This wasn't like my all time favorite vegetables on the one thing. I would add if i had to change anything in this recipe. Of course you can use a food processor. That's what i would suggest basically turned my thermo. Mix into a food processor. Besides definitely not skipping this step of extracting all liquids and separating it i would've added a little bit of like vermicelli noodles or something into it and something that you see quite a bit in korean cuisine when you'd make bond do just because it it just adds a little bit of texture and body and nuance and but it was still delicious. It was a dumpling. Not my son. Eight and i honestly with the sauce. You couldn't even tell. The meat was missing. I think it is a ton of chopping. I did it all hand for some ungodly reason. I actually frankly the right. All the job by hand was. I had realized that i had not used knife to do anything in the kitchen in probably three months like i've just become so lazy and i wanted to. I regret it with a ton of shopping. Incredible amount shopping. I think i'd probably doubled the seizing she called for. I should have done that. Yeah but i actually take your point to dave of not adding sauce ingredients to a dumpling. There's there's some like amazing. Alchemy of a dumpling sauce. On top of a cook dumpling. That's very different. than eating. just a season dumpling. But you name that kind of like liquid on top of the rapper and the kind of like a little saltier at first and then not salty just like the. It's not one uniform balance thing of all the recipes she. She spent the most time ensuring the best kinds of sauces for the dumpling. Definitely y'all give. I think she had really nice pleading instructions. I think it was cool that she she's sort of pleaded from both sides and met in the middle. I don't know if you guys actually followed us our. You're pleading games. How's your full game. Chang absolutely none no just like my parents house your house. You're not not that great But was unsurprisingly. Incredible he was definitely some kind of japanese grandmother in a previous life. He didn't even read the instructions and his police were perfect. Saas the kinda guy could write. That watches me cookies. Like dot guys professional shaath again. I have ovarian. I i just can't i can't do the pleats. I'm not going to make you know. Bow i just can't do it. I've hands stone. i actually have nerve damage truthfully. So it's hard for me to do certain things. But i do having made enough of these in my life i know want you seal it. It's going to be so you don't need to do the pleats certainly aesthetics. I didn't do it on any of these. I you have to say one thing that i found like super pleasing about this is like i did not grow up. You know fleeting dumplings in large batches with family members but actually texted chris. I found it to be like such a soothing activity I did this. The day after like biden was declared the winner of the election that was just like such a intense day. And i feel like this was like i was so anxious in this was like the most anxiety decreasing activity nick highly recommend. Franks you were so happy to be doing it. You text me. This is really good for my mental health. I didn't get a text recipe. Listen i think this is a great vegetarian recipe. And i just wanted to be pre. That's all that's not only a vegetarian. Vegan i think as it's written right true and then i mean that that was the one thing i was gonna say i chain like you would have added vermicelli noodles. I mainly just. Because i'm used to kind of meat dumplings but i wouldn't have minded like some egg in there or something to bind to make a little bit more or less crumbly. I think an angry. But i think it's a really delicious. Yes fat. i think it's a delicious within. The i mean what. I didn't even look at the bottom part of the recipe of how to cook it because i saw the photos. I'm not going to like that. I put in a lot of oil. I cooked like a chinese person. Not like what's in the book well. She says she interestingly basically all pasta cooking methodology is some variation on stick the raw dumplings into a nonstick pan with oil then put water in so they steam. once the water is evaporated. Keep cooking until they're they're brown and crispy but yeah. I think some of the fat comes from there and also from the chili oil at the end to. Yeah i also appreciate our on this recipe. I appreciate that. She put forth her preferred brand of rapper. G. didn't really explain why she preferred this. Brambilla suggested a brand and I'm just somebody who who and it'll it'll come out when we talk about prius recipe like the thickness of the wrapper for various dumplings. Is the whole game to me.

Yet you to should we talk about it. I was talking about the disservice to make. Oh jeez well. I really liked. I really liked this recipe. I loved the combination of like the ginger shallot End squash I will say that. I omitted the celery because i just. I just don't like up to date. Are you kidding me. You cannot say that state dan. You can't make changes. Ups did more squash and no celery. Because i love like. I had a really really nice kubota squash. It was super sweet horsewhipped. You admit the personal to today mitt. The what personnel. Why did the person at the personnel was nice. I omitted the parsnips zip. I'm turning this off. In a way. I just i didn't i didn't i frankly i couldn't find a parsnips for some reason at my grocery but also had a bunch of dicon radish. I wanted us up. So i just threw that in there instead. That's a good idea. The one thing. I will say i thought this recipe was was really nice. It was like very sweet with nice salty acidic dipping sauce. Like i just felt like the contrast. Were really really nice. It was easy to follow. It was so much less work than dave's veggie dumpling. Like a quarter of the amount of shopping. Whoa whoa whoa. Whoa whoa whoa. You're be more shopping online for sure but again if you have some ingenuity use a food processor done but yours. You can slice an artery. Chopping coach squashes dangerous work. My dad got the hardest part of the recipe is chopping the squash. Did you guys do you guys leave the kuboto of skin on her our peel. It off when you fill the doubling. I appealed it off and i. I actually used a potato masher and mashed squash a little bit. Because i like. I just felt like i was gonna prefer the like Silky mashed texture to like the cubes of squash. And i'm glamorous butternut squash ravioli is what you were shooting for ground. Whitewash outta i what i actually i liked about this recipe was i loved her. Kubota roasting instructions were just rubbed the thing with soy sauce and throw it into oven cream. I loved that. I think the filling is a nice dumpling filling. I think it's a really. I didn't read instruction you can. You didn't the kubota straight into the microwave. What dave that the whole point. Did you season it did you. Did you add sauce of course okay but i didn't roasted because i just plop the whole thing in the microwave. Then you know made it soft. And then i put everything. In the thermal mix at this point. She's not like there's a huge difference in roasting versus microwaving squash. Not not really. 'cause i added a gava an msg to yours to get the sweetness and the some of that my art so it tasted probably better than your a roasted squash. Why are you shaking your head for you. Usually you admitted celery. Do you agree or disagree with this thing. I think this is a a nice dumpling filling. I think it's a poor joe's a filling. I love the cookbook recipe author. She's one of the very best that we have. I knew i didn't want to celery. I did it anyway. Because i think salaries only good in a couple of things on food and chicken noodle soup and in mere paw. but not in a dumpling. I thought it was overpowering for me. Also the person it was a little bit strange for me i could see how emitting those things could have been really good. I also think that it seemed to me just would be better tortellini. Farce than a traditional joe's are filling. I mean that's sort of what i'm saying so for wanted i wanted to cook it in bernards at some stage so that's butternut squash ravioli out of delicious. I don't think there was anything wrong with the recipe genuine. It was just so out of my comfort zone to eat a gourd filling. Joe's are that i didn't know how to like You know i had no idea i feel about. It was a very very push me out of my comfort zone. Chris what are you what are you. What do you think about this recipe. Well for all of chang's short cutting and the omissions made fucking made up for by doing extra credit. I made this feeling. And i used multiple thicknesses of rappers cooking methods to determine what i really felt about this and that's how i reached my conclusion that like this is first of all mashing. The kubota squash pre is probably the only way you can really make this. Because you actually if you genuinely use thin goes rappers and you use a row squash. Like i can't tell you. How many holes i poked and goes as i was trying to fold these fuckers It's good with thick. Rappers is good thick and like you guys are saying a little bit more like a ravioli steamed or boiled or something. It's better that way. And the the filling matched a thicker rapper better than it did. A thin one. So that's where i am on this one Last recipe is probably the most traditional. Which is the eye crib from. Nalco to k. more Cabbage that you are supposed to blanche to to sort of remove excess water from chop up mixed with ground pork onion garlic ginger She calls her potato starch. I couldn't find potato starch cornstarch suffices plenty fine then you follow my recipe well because my recipe needed potato starch. Which as cornstarch to search dude we did you rotate search starch. You did. That's the first thing you followed in a recipe. This entire podcast. It doesn't break any new ground. It's not a revelation but to me. It's a damn fine sticker. Damn fine gizeh chris. I love this recipe. I even texted. Chris and chris was like. Are you sure you want to do this. Like your text feed all these things on the record about how much she loved this recipe. I liked it so much that. I texted chris like this is a fantastic recipe. It is kind of recipe that makes you want to make dumplings frequently because it's not terribly hard to make. The instructions are really clear and careful. You can make a nice big batch of it. I ended up cooking some freezing a few and then bringing the frozen ones to a good friend of mine. Who'd actually just lost her mom and it just felt like such a true expression of love with such like a big flavor. Easy to make dumpling. That was just like made with care and chris. I think i think you got your w with this. Like i think it was fantastic. I think the point you're making their pre is is. I mean thank you but i think that's the other aspect of like making the pleats in the dumplings. It's not just an aesthetic thing. Like dumplings are a pain in the ass and like the fact. they're painting. The ass is essential to there being like you make the police to show that like. Oh i took the time to do this. Decorative extra thing. Because i care and i want you to see that i cared really. Add to the flavor of the thing. There's more than one way to show that you care. And i disagree with that statement. Ching chang just brings pleaded dumplings his loved ones with like a hundred dollar bill inside of it just like i care. It's a very classic recipe. I think it's a classic recipe. The only sort of improvement. I would make to it is i would omit the whole blanche and cabbage step. I'm sure chang did the same. That's what i meant or waving it and chopping it. I microwave in my special contraption that we'll talk about and then worked out great again. I processed the whole thing and again judging by my family they love this one the most by far away but i also cooked it more chinese i did a a a potato starch slurry to fry it so i can get the whole crispy like the laddis underneath it. Wow dude ebrill went above a. I don't see that in chinese restaurants. I see that in. That's like a hallmark of japanese. To is the the web of sort of fried starch that connects all of the dumplings in the pan. Kind of like a little potato sterile air. Yes very very delicious skirt. Yeah i mean it's it's classical. I think it's it's delicious. I'm super glad that you got some use out of it that you froze some because like that's the best the real secret about yo they freeze super well and it's like a really nice thing to have when you're stoned late at night to find a bag of frozen gives a but you really careful about how you freeze the ios a say more about that. Yes so when. I was freezing them. Like the first bag i did. I put them way too close together. I was trying to fit as many goes as i could in one bag. And then the second bag. I separated them out Two layers separated by parchment paper and that was definitely the superior move because once you have once they get stuck together in the freezer. I even tried like microwaving. The stuck together dumplings in it just doesn't work and you end up just i just friday. As like one super dumpling. Yeah i think. I think yeah. You gotta freeze them. Sort of in a layer with separation between them and then bag them but Bannon freeze them. You need a boil them. I know interesting. Yeah that's the trick. What does that do. I mean like. Boil them and shock them and then a little oil. And then that's easier or you just put a lot of flour on them when the raw right and that's how you do it. Yeah usually anytime of cornstarch or something. I wanna say one thing really quickly about your dumplings. Which is that like. I feel like as someone who like has vegetarian tendencies. I usually prefer the vegetarian option. I think in this case. This is one of those moments. Where i was like. The fat of the pork is really essential. Here like the dumpling itself was very juicy and succulent and it is harder to recreate that juicy. Nice when you're working with a vegetable when you're working with tofu and that was something that i actively missed in david my recipes. I'm okay losing. I don't think i really one recipe club yet with the exception of maybe the stuffing the potato. puree one. But you know it wasn't like a clean victory for me. But i feel like crying. Ing easily wins. This week's i don't even have to vote. There's no vote. i think you know i want. It was such a good recipe. That i decide kind of recipe out of it. Yeah i like. I'm gonna make this again like next week. Chris how does it fuel to have such a decisive victory. After dave just like snatching it away from you we got. I just like with one of those things man were you. You try to interview a quarterback right after the win. It's gonna take weeks for this decision. I don't even know guys teared up here. It's it's a it's a victory for me. It's really a victory for the rest of the author. This is a. this is a great recipe. I actually think all the recipes were very very good right. I think preez was good. Although i think you tweak think my recipe you can tweak but you're a recipe from start to finish very very good again recipe that doesn't deviate from tradition at all and was delicious. Although i would you know there's different ways you can cook it to write in. I thought it was great and you deserve the win. But that's not re- we again knew that you were going to win but the real battle here is for second place and leave it at chris. Long we just leave it at. This is way who who. Which of the two do you like. Chris preez mike. This is the true mitch. Mcconnell knowing that andrea win is on the other side of this event day putting it on meet at she. A second-place is the mitch. Mcconnell move listen. Like i said as a strictly joseph filling without any judgment with all the love in the world for andrea when chang's vegetate vegetarian dumplings. Better davis is virtually literally pumping his fists. Right now second-place never tasted my. If we're gonna talk best practices here. I might for making both of the dumpling recipes. Us admitted was that. Like i gotta stop being such a meathead like i never. I've never made vegetarian dumplings in my life. I just going to start doing more. It's great because dumplings. My kids will eat them without regard for whatever. The fuck is inside so More vegetable dumplings into was the opposite might take away was like oh. I like meat dumplings more than i thought. Maybe my recipe should have been a meat dumpling recipes. We've both had our eyes open to other sides of the fence here. I also want to say that. I feel like you know. Kind of beauty of recipe club is that sometimes the traditional recipe wins out. Sometimes the tempest bacon wins. Our and i know. I think like we're every dish. It's like really interesting to put the most traditional version kinda to the test and i think this is one of those cases which i think. I think it's probably more uncommon for this version to win out. But where i was like. Oh there's a reason this is the og goes up like it lives up to that. I like that too. I agree with you. Pre uh i do also think it was nice that you were able to sneak a mention of pass victory of yours it to a good point so well honestly just like i came in second place third place last place. That's all that matters. I'm the middle forgettable. It's all our dave. My debate coach once said that. Second place is i loser. Eight-plus students but for second place or c. plus student that's like an a plus places the first loser i think i had a bad boy club t shirt that on it in elementary school to leila wheel wheel of death. This is really problematic. Because i haven't had a real victory in like ten recipes. Yeah you know it's an unimpeachable. Judge of of quality recipe club cannot be denied. So it's just the truth all right on the wheel this week. This is good wheel. We slow getty instant rahman eggplant beer. Yanni flat bread velveeta cheese casserole hamas canned crescent rolls an halibut. Wait can we just do. We need to do instant rahman because we needed to pit korean instant rahman against like chinese instant rahman against maggie noodles. While you need to make you need to make an appeal to the fates here because this is in the hands of the wheel my friend god. Listen i love cool runnings too. I love that movie but the jamaican bobsled team will not win a gold medal. What's everybody hoping for. What's everybody dreading here well. South hates eggplant. So i'll have to eat a lot of eggplant alarm. Halbert is like least favorite fish although the halibut tail is only part of the halibut. That i like because you can cook it like a steak on the bone but halibut in general is all i I could not be rooting harder for canned crescent rolls guy cans of crescent rolls in my house. Right now i mean. I don't know that's not even a pre as wheelhouse different part of india together so that the real weakness for her that could be. That could be interesting. I would love to see. Because i want to eat a ton of yanni. I know i will lose whatever yati recipe. I've read a lot breads pre. It could have a pre has more tricks perceive on flat bread. You have more tricks up your sleeve off can you. Not which one is guaranteed victory for you. Chang instant rahman i think no definitely not instant goodwin hamas casserole. I mean now. I gotta turn it on. You know what i mean like. Now i'm like okay. I've lost a lot so some extra credit work. And the only thing that i really don't wanna make is eggplant. It had halibut excellent. You can only do so much. I feel like we all make some kind of baba canoes shore or something like that. Which i love. But it's just or fried. There's just not so much you can do with eggplant for me. And i'm not gonna make eggplant parm for land on eggplant. Can't imagine why not velveeta. Velveeta is like but i don't wanna make recipes for so velveeta is probably one i wanted to. I know casserole i. I don't think i've ever eaten a casserole broad category shit baked in a casserole dish. If i get. I'm gonna make all of us make a pass away from scratch. Sure you aren't. She sure you're gonna do it from scratch to all right. Let's give this bad boy. Spin purport book. I'll throw for that castle. Everybody it's on nightmare. It's the old casserole dave. You can't that. That's not a call anything a casserole. It can be a castaway casserole food literally as a catchall for anything. It's like calling it. You know something sugar. What's sweet they do. We want to put limitations. Like casserole is so huge. Like you could do anything. So i just googled. Casseroles seventy best. Let's just go through pretty. You know what. Preah castle is listed in the wikipedia article of about casserole really sweet potato casserole cheesy collie hashbrowns casserole chicken. Oh fuck i think i might make this one. This one looked chicken bacon. Ranch cats seasons casserole. That sounds like right up his alley. Cheeto casserole that seems like a young one if there has one who greet chicken keen wa and broccoli casserole that sounds like an isaac meet bows my nickname making this. I'm telling you right now. I make can make an ranch spring hamburger helper denver omelette. Tot casserole fuck yeah dude. I feeling in order to win. I'm gonna have to like sort of tap into like the kristen. Dave stonier neil mentality. You know milk preah. Why why would you say that. Such negative degenerated wage marijuana was decriminalised by congress. Today so no. You can't make that kind of teriyaki chicken casserole mind right there baby. I think there's a bunch of donors chris. I think you temporarily pravda castro pizza pepperoni pizza pasta about this right now. What's happening though chang. I don't think you had lunch. I'm looking at these. And i'm like i want to eat this but this is like growing grocery shopping. When you're hungry there's going to be a life of regret after ranch is a holy trinity combination. That's i can just change. I'm glad it's on the record that chang excited about these because i'm going to get some angry tax from him so good all right let's Let's let's wrap this up so we'll we'll reconvene with pre in a few weeks for casseroles. This is great. What do you think pre is gonna. Let's discuss what do you think pre is going to make. I think she is. Now going to defy expectation. I think she's gonna come with a meat casserole. I really do think she's gonna come with the meat this time. I think she'll she'll probably do something. I even classic like tuna casserole. No no way. She does tuna casserole. She's still going to pick something outside the box. But i would be surprised if it was like kito meatball chris. What are you leaning towards. He's gonna do crescent roll casserole. Get my cross central sitting there somehow. I really. I'm going to do so. I'm gonna do some annoying thing where i'm like. Technically a casserole is from. The eta. Balaji of the chinese were whatever and to be far recipes. So sir oh come on you. Chicken bacon ranch again. Yeah so you put the routine pasta and you put shredded chicken cooked and crumbled bacon. You mix that together then you put a bottle of alfredo sauce. Range seasoning mozzarella cheese one cup of monterey jack mixed together top with another cup of one. Half cup of monterey baked for fifteen twenty minutes dude. That's how lactose intolerant skewed hurt. So bad yeah oh man this is going to be so good all right. Let's let's Like i said tune in a few weeks when we reconvene prefer this casserole. Slash lactate pill. Eating bonanza yeah. I'm so sorry. Chris i have to win. This this is this is this is this is like my life is on the line. I am wondering definitely must win per day. Must-win situation all right or dave gets kicked out of his own podcast. All right guys.

Bucky brooks former. Nfl defensive back drafted by the bills in the second round. Free agency is up and running and he is jao joining me live. You know i it it just you'd be alcohol and money make you more of what you are and the jets have cap space and spend a ton of it on just to players carl lawson. Who's okay but they gave him a lot of money. And then corey davis. Who's drives me nuts. I think he's a huge talent. And then new england becomes more of what they are. They just spread it around. They got nine ten guys. I prefer new. England's approach your thoughts on what you see from new england big picture on what they're actually doing bucky with all these free agents. Yeah i think the new england patriots are kind of finding their identity in this era post. Tom brady and so they signed cam. Newton to really a modest deal very modest and they're doing up all of the pieces around him. And i think when you look at when the pages have really been at their best is because they've been able to run multiple tied in formation's going all the way back to rob gronkowski delay late aaron hernandez there. They have been at their best when they can put too big bodies on the field and move them around to manipulate the way the defense has to defend. I also believe that. Bill belichick and the staff. They've looked and they didn't seem some of the things that the baltimore ravens have been able to do. Successfully particularly in the regular season took control the game and so for organization a franchise that prized themselves in plain complimentary ball. They've nail utilize all of their free agency currency to put them in a position to be one of the best complimentary. Football teams. great run game. Multiple tannen says so they can play heavy when you playing with your nickel packages and then they got veterans to come to the defense. I what you're seeing is. They new england patriots team that is forming their identity of being a physical ground and pound team. That can go back to playing really good defense and win a bunch of close games. Okay so the jets have a history Cj vian bell tremaine johnson. They don't sprinkle it around. Go for big hits. And i just i looked at these signings and i thought this feels very jets to me. Your thought well. I mean i think what they're doing. I think the general manager. Joe douglas winning in assess that they don't have a lot of talent all over the board so they need to get some critical positions taken care of so to get kara lawson to give them an energetic pass rusher and even though the stats she will send you only have five and a half sacks last year. He was one of the more disruptive edge russia's that was available on the market. They get jared davis to put an inside linebacker because cj mosey has not been available at the task two years and then corey davis on the outside. We've complained for years. They haven't given sam donna or any quarterback that is going to play a dominant receiver on the outside. They're taking a chance that his talent will be realized because remember. He's a top pick. There are a lot of people that thought he was going to be a dominant player. The next level. Maybe new york feels like in this new system that they'll be able to maximize his talents. Does this tell you. They're keeping darnold or moving in. What what are these. Like corey davis moved. Is there any sign here. That i should pick up on. I don't know i still. Tvd i think they do. Proceed with sam donald. Then the first thing in the draft would be bypassed quarterback. Go beef up the office. Line get two guys on the outside. Penins sue you rishaad slater to go opposite mci becton be able to create a fortunes in front of sam darnold if your quarterback so he can have a level of success or you can evaluate them with sam is the fifth year option. Comes up and you talking about eighteen plus million dollars you would have to commit. What do you want to do with him. Do you believe enough in him that he's going to develop in the system that you have. We saw baker mayfield. Do it in a similar system. Do the gist believe that. Sam darnold can make a similar job so ryan fitzpatrick to the washington football team. What's that telling me. I don't know i'm not necessarily in love with it. I know ryan. Fitzpatrick has become a feel-good good story because i think all of us particularly as age out we love seeing the old guy. Happy shot he's the common man he he comes in there and he he throws caution to the wind and throws the ball all over the yard. The problem with that it might have worked out well at times for the dolphins he is turnover prone. He is going to turn the ball over. And so if you're a washington football team that is built on the defense dominating. He can put the ball in harm's way if he turns it over. It puts this team in peril. Because there's not a lot of weapons on offense. They can't play come from behind ball. I dunno it kind of kicks. The can down the road. I can't say that ryan fitzpatrick is a better player than alex smith. So i don't know it's more of the same for me when look at washington football team so gronk is going to run it back They got godwin franchise tag shack barrett signed a levante. David are you surprised. Tampa was able to get everybody. You know arms around everybody. No not at all. I think it all starts at the top with the quarterback when the quarterback is committed to making sure that he has enough around him to win then the team can build a team around him that enables him to win when tom brady will take but low market deals or kind of reconfigure his contract to make where they have cash to keep everybody they win. He is figured it out. Probably better than most quarterbacks in the league that he needs a team around him to be successful and as we saw in the super bowl he didn't play to a level in the super bowl but he played good enough with the dominant defense to be able to win. And i've heard you talk about it year. Two of the buccaneers is scary because they won the super bowl without it. All coming together during the regular season neta. They know that they can win. this is when the fun starts for the team down in tampa bay so shat griffin. The corner for seattle is now a jaguar so seattle. I thought the first thing they needed in the draft was left guard and then a corner and now the need to corners. And you've got the quarterback complaining. i. I've always had kind of a rule bucky the louder the postseason the worst season philadelphia has been loud. The last two years dallas is always a little loud pittsburgh got loud. I feel like seattle's the loudest season team and now shack. Griffin's gone i mean it it's i do think last seattle today i do. Do you mean because of one player. They're allowed because russell wilson not because anybody in the organization is being loud russell. Wilson has complained about not having what he deems be acceptable players around him. And so i do think there's some big issues that have to be worked out when it comes to russell kind of coming back in reworking himself into the locker room returns of some of the comments and stuff that had been said but i think the seattle sea will be fine michelle griffin is a good player. I wouldn't say he's necessarily a great player. And i think at some point when you're in this market you have to evaluate bang for your buck. Am i getting the return on the investment. If i paid him big money. Am i going to get that kind of play on the perimeter. And i think the seahawks. They didn't believe that they were going to get that kind of plan return. It might be different for him down jacksonville but i think in seattle. They felt like they could probably find better. Either draft or later on their roster that concurrently developed so. I'm just going to throw a theory at you if you ran the niners so one of the things you don't want to do in this league is just keep doing the same thing over and over and getting the same result. Garoppolo was hurt in week. Two of deflate gate week to in san francisco week. Three and san francisco week to in san francisco his body. It's like anthony davis and the lakers. He's not a guy gaining sixteen seventeen weeks. That's the reality of his career so they don't wanna pay. Trent williams left tackle big money. He's a great player but he's twenty million so they would love to take that twelve th pick in a good. Ot class and get it offensive to tackle but then you you gotta have somebody behind garoppolo or you're going to mullins again and you're just you know the old eisenstein theory same thing. You want different results. So this is why. I keep looking at san francisco and think if i could give up a second round pick for darnold and i would just tell garoppolo. We're going to let you start for eight weeks. We're going to trade you to a good franchise at the trade deadline. Give us eight weeks. Because i honestly think you cannot. You can't go in a season without drafting a left. Tackle trent williams with garoppolos health. I think darnold still the fit their your thoughts. I think he could be fitted because there were people in the building. They really liked him when he was coming out You think about this offense. I mean we said he would be going for the same office in new york to now the plane for the master in kyle. Shanahan we've seen with this. Offense can do with quarterbacks who are struggling or who were averaged talents. Just look at what it was able to do like in cleveland. We saw cleveland go from a team out of the postseason to inside the postseason. Because the op is really helped. A quarterback finds game. San francisco can be similar. And obviously you have a better playcaller shanahan. I think the big thing that the forty niners after determine. What did they want to do. Long term with jimmy garoppolo. We can take shots at jimmy garoppolo. What he hasn't been able to do with those things but the record is different when he plays as opposed to win. He doesn't play and do they believe they will be better team long term. Will sam darnold or another quarterback or do they need to run it back with jimmy garoppolo and figure out a way to make him better by either of grading the weapons around him or finding a way to put the playcalls in his sweet spot so he could lead his best. Bucky goodstuff prochet fox sports. Nfl analyst thank you so much they maybe. I'm just rooting for darnold. His story deserves a happy ending. You hey.

Well as we just discussed with bucky brooks the jaguars are bringing in former seahawks. Cornerback shaquille griffin. Who was just on the show with us. A few days ago he agreed to a three year. Deal worth up to forty four point. Five million dollars with twenty nine million guaranteed seattle reportedly made a strong push at the ends and got close to keeping him but griffin strong offers from several teams ultimately shows. The jags seahawks are reportedly. Also making a run at leonard for net. They released carlos dunlap and They're they're making some moves says offseason but i. I don't know if i love this. I would have liked to see him. Stay in seattle. He's a he's a he's been the league four years. He made a pro bowl last year. We had a lot of picks. He's a very productive as sending player. He's a borderline pro bowl corner for a team. That is not a corner and doesn't have a pass rush. Now that carl's dunlap's gone. I do like this. Move for the jags. So he's good player i I'm this is one of those teams team. We're gonna talk about in a second. I'm obviously going to be paying close attention to trevor lawrence. But i really want to see what what. Urban meyer is. Not just this offseason. But i really want to see what you guys. In the same way. I think he's going to have a very productive draft so the chargers got some more protection for justin herbert next season they signed caq former packers center orleans to a five year sixty two point. Five million dollar deals a great. This is a great signing for him in two thousand twenty here in first team all pro honors and helped the packers tied for second league with fewest sacks allowed. They also signed former steelers guard. Matt feiler interest twenty one million dollar deal. He was the starting right tackle for the two thousand eighteen and nineteen season and then he moved to left guard for the two thousand twenty season. After ramon foster Forced the line to shop when he left so he started thirteen games and then went on injured. Reserve with a pectoral injury and came back for the playoff loss to the browns. He played every single offensive. Snap of the two thousand nineteen season and eighty six percent of the absence. Twenty twenty one twenty twenty season so to really good signings offensive line for the chargers That's interesting now. Because do they still need left tackle. Because trai turner got released. So lindsay's a pro bowl center. I think they still need. I actually still think they could go off line. They don't have they don't have a ton of needs. They're they're good receiver. Now they lost hunter henry What are the chargers draft about eleven twelve or somewhere around there. What do they dropped. Fourteen fifteen so. I still think they go thirteen. So that's today kyle pits will be long gone. They don't need a quarterback. Thirteen does three or four great tackles so i think they'll still go. I go looking to bring bringing a couple of guys in the league bring rookie and there. You go there being aggressive in free agency for the offensive line. A young quarterback. You don't have to pay him right now. So protect him. Get him some weapons. That's how it goes. I'm i can't wait to see. Herbert does next year in his second year in the league and And those like some jokes in there about chargers fans but we are assuming there's going to be fans in the stands will This this fall so it's going to be completely different environment for him here in la. And you know. I mean mattie staffers signing but it kind of feels like no no no. He's the chargers. A team right now in los angeles. We'll see what happens to the rest of their line has been sort of the franchise liability last two or three years. So they brought trade turnaround solve it. He didn't have a great year. They had injury tackle. So this is a kind of we knew what they would address in agencies and they went right after cleaning up. And you have. A young quarterback lines should be the like cincinnati. So tom brady has found a new way to connect with fans. He posted a video on twitter where he gave out a phone number. That you can text him on. I know he. He reached out to you on twitter. during the alien controversy of a few weeks ago so he he laid out some ground rules for anyone who does reach out to him. Though reverend talked into giving out my cellphone on the internet so listen rule number one before we get into any of this no texting game days really though what this is is it's a tool that will allow me to communicate more directly with my fans and followers. Sometimes it gets hard to sort through. You suck. Grady comments quite a few over the years. It's usually from the jet fans but to be clear. Text me you suck yes. I'll see it. And i may or may not respond video tom his actual phone number the burner a counter. It's like a service A lot of celebrities this where you can text them and instead of you know. It just makes it easier like if you when i'm send out some. Tv twelve promotions. You send it directly to people that like opt into the texting. I know that it's going like it's probably an app. But it's not like popping up in his text message. It's too bad. Like i used to take phone calls But now i have a simulcast. So i don't take phone calls and i don't monitor. I filtered out fans on twitter because for every smart thoughtful one with a great question. There's nine dorks so in the end. I don't really communicate with fans that much. I just do what i wanna do now and i would love to have a device where you could communicate with like people that have interesting questions i. There's there's a place for that. I'm not sure if this phone thing. But there is like when i used to take phone calls Cell phones ruined it. Because you get used to be people call you at home and a good phone line last ten years. It was all cell phones on bad phone lines. Well the problem with taking calls. Because even when i was in local radio we didn't we stop taking calls unless it's like a contest or some soap me filtered. Yeah because it's you think we all know these looked great thought and then they're like all excited about it and then on air and they're like well. Hi guys. how are you today. No we were good work with the question. But and i'm with you. It's it's it's difficult. I don't think i'll be giving out my phone number On the internet but it's It's it's it's a fun way to communicate. I get what you're saying. It's hard to to connect with fans. Now's filtered through all the non. Yeah i mean you have to filter out all the nonsense on social media. He can't communicate there. I try to make an effort to talk to people. Yeah i used to you are. You're on another level call around but yeah nicer be nicer and smarter. And then we'll we'll see i hire. I've hired two people up twitter. Go twice. I've hired somebody off twitter because there were genuinely fun member near tweets and don't charge them because we're not paying for right. Joy was news.

Let's play the three word game in the afc buffalo bills. Run it back. They've not made any free agent acquisitions yet. Josh allen led them to their first. afc championship game and twenty seven years. Only have a little cap money any way about six million bucks. No reason for big moose. Miami dolphins to be determined to head the second fewest passing yards among all qualified. Quarterbacks he got benched twice in the fourth quarter ryan. Fitzpatrick's gone so it is a weight. Hopi improves get another receiver. In the draft new england patriots bill shopping spree patriots tight. End had the fewest catches and touchdowns and the nfl. Last year's they went and bought hunter henry and jonnu smith plus a mother's last twenty four hours. They've spent two hundred seventy three million new york jets. Get sam out jets. Haven't had four thousand yard passer since joe nemeth in the late sixty. There's a reason they hire bad coaches. They spend bad money on free agents. They always seem to have like one legitimate of lyman. And that's it. Get sam out baltimore ravens. Just keep running led the nfl and rushing and rush percentage each of the last two years. Only the seventy two dolphins have been at that pace in the seventy. Two dolphins won a super bowl and these guys are good. Let lamar grow. They do need to address wide receiver either in free agency or the draft. Pittsburgh steelers steel big. Ben lost five of their last six. He looked tired and in their last ten playoff games. Ben rothlisberger three up seven down. Data's reality cincinnati bengals. Borough gets blocking. He was the most sacked quarterback through the first seven weeks. They have the number five pick. They'll either go with a penny sewell. An option they will address the offensive line in this draft. My guests is multiple times. Cincinnati's never had great locked. They're fortunate though this year in that what they need offensive tackles an offensive. Lineman is plentiful in the draft. Cleveland browns trade obgyn. He's their second largest contract and the team got better. Money got hurt. It was their first playoff win since the nineties. He's got value on the market. There is no question but he is brittle and he is expensive. and jarvis. landry is such a dynamic wide receiver. Himself it does feel like the one area they could move off a top player and gain help on the back end of their defense tennessee. Titans went sinow. Oh excuse me. Pass rushers wanted They signed bud. Dupree of pittsburgh not their best linebacker. But he's help they had the third fewest sacks and listen. Mike variables are really smart. Guy and he can't generate a pass rush with his schemes. So they just don't have good enough personnel so but debris got a little bit more money than pittsburgh wanted to pay him. Eighty-five million five years But he he does have twenty sacks last couple years now. Some of that is because pittsburgh's pass rush is so forceful you got so many people you have to block. Sometimes bud dupree can get past that. He's gotten better over the last couple years though. There were doubters early. But it's a good. Get for them. Indianapolis colts once in a while. Listen they had the number seven offensive line last year last time frank right and carson wentz together. They were very good and he played in a mvp level. I i think we all believe that. Philip rivers can win eleven games. If when's can just get his rec- back to some degree. It feels like an eleven or twelve win team plus it's a very winnable division. It's always a little sideways. Houston texans have a problem. Actually several the head coach is over. Skis shawn watson. Doesn't want to be there cap issues. There four million under You know they've given away too. Many good draft picks and they've got a franchise quarterback who at this point is just saying. I'm not interested at all. They're not taking calls. Reportedly nick caserio their new. Gm from new england. He's not even taking calls for seattle. At least is so. This thing is the longer you wait with stars the less you get back historically in the nba and nfl jacksonville. Jaguars been home. Rebuil- listened they've got the most cap space just signed chat griffin. They got the number one pick. They're gonna take that kid. Trevor lawrence and the four times. Urban meyer has gone to a new place. Bowling green utah. Florida ohio state. They've senior win. Totals increase in the first season. So he's got a plan. He's got a theory. He's got a point of view jacksonville. What's the ceiling on urban. Meyer in the nfl. I have no idea. But he's a winner. He's a culture creator and he gets the best college quarterback maybe in the last five to ten years out of the draft. Kansas city chiefs state farm policy. They're rebuilding the offensive line and they started with joe tuni who is not missed a game. In five seasons they got two tackles. they need I wouldn't want to have to address both of those in the draft. I still think they can go out and sign somebody in free agency for tunisia. Top ten guard in the league and Again they they're late first round pick. They move up but dogo for tackles in the draft. You can be assured of that. Los angeles chargers herbert fully charged. Listen he said. Nfl rookie record for touchdown passes and yards and three hundred yard gains and essentially everything you could. When he was given five minutes ahead of he was playing and it was a bad offensive line. So what's herbert now with a better offensive line in the second year with a preseason. My guess is outstanding. They just signed corey. Linley the pro bowl center from green bay. So herbert gets a world class center. A preseason more wraps should be good. Denver broncos lock drew out drew lock lowest completion percentage in the nfl last year of quarterbacks who qualify you. Just you can't win in this league thrown fifty seven percent completion rate. And i like fanta tight end. I like jerry jeudy. They got some players. So i i think there weapons are good a couple of marill young but he told a lot of picks he plays kind of casual style. A lot of balls thrown up for grabs. And we've had enough rumors in denver. We know they're not. They're not settling on him. At this point there they will try to make a deal for somebody. Las vegas raiders a g- rude awakening. John gruden's the only coach. The missed the playoffs. Each of the last three years and still has a job. Now he's going to have one for another six or seven because it's a ten year contract and mark davis absolutely loves him but there are questions. Inside the organization notably get worse after thanksgiving which is the opposite of what really good teams do a lot of good teams. New england historically has struggled in september experiment. You play young guys. They've been bad down the stretch and Right now defensively. they don't have a pass. Rush and their secondary is not very redeemable. That's a that's kind of tennessee combination. You don't have a pass rush yet. You better have great corners and they do not supplement. I take every day as m drive packed with powerful ingredients. Back by science free shipping. Sixty day money back guarantee. Don't let age beat you check out em drive for men dot com today and also walgreen's rite aid and vitamin shoppe. All have well they call it to save it for a rainy day right. Save it for a rainy day. Fund in new england They they had a rainy season. They're ready to go the pandemic kind of scoot everybody's cap up and they were ready to get rid of players and had a lot of space so listen the one thing they did. You can't argue tight. End situation is great. Today it was a disaster last year and cam and his big fifteen in one year and carolina's leading wide receiver was actually greg olsen. The tied in ted ginn was their speedy receiver. But they didn't have a very good receiving corps so what cam works with is good running games and good tight ends and a good defense that got him to a super bowl and carolina so bill belichick who by the way struggled in a couple of different meetings with cam. Newton cam was very good. I think at least twice. Maybe three times but twice. I remember against him. So they're building an offense for cam and or a mobile quarterback good run game goodall line.

How to Thrive Through Turmoil at Work (with Ian Patrick)

"Tom. Hey, Pedro. Hi everyone high audience. Welcome back to the medalists. We are so so excited today to share with you that we are now finalists for best business podcast for the PODCAST, awards twenty at twenty. Regard that stuff isn't it for real? I am for real and it's pretty crazy because it's people's choice style which means. We had so many people nominate us that we made it into the final. So if you were one of those people who nominated us, check your email, check your trash and your spam folder just in case you received an email that asked you to vote. We need you to vote for us if not everyone will get that chance but some of you have already told us you did so thank you for that. Jao were superstar. You guys are the best medalists all listeners out there for for helping to support us. You know we're here again doing this with you for you. On that note, we wanted to share with you that the interview that we are going to be hearing from today actually took place before the shutdown in the US. So you won't hear it reference specifically there it comes from Middle East obviously who was coming to the profession. Of the recession, a home in the early two thousand. So of course, we're seeing things in relation to how to deal with leadership changes in organization, how to influence management up and down. So not something that you just learn from and we think Ian Patrick Mahomes. Has. Really great stories that resonate they certainly resonated with us and we hope they resonate with you. So today, we're lucky enough to have soap opera legacy in our midst. He is a nonprofit development guru. So welcome and Patrick. Thank you. I'm thrilled to be here. Three adjectives would you use to describe yourself? I'd say. Curious. Creative and. committed. I like. committed. Committed, not WanNa hear very often. Yeah. I imagine that makes you a very good employees to have on a team in a moment of change particularly in leadership. I see I, see the Segue I'd like it Yeah. I think that I probably didn't always have that quality. Developed over time as you go through changes and abrupt shifts in an organization and and personnel teams but but I think now I feel I feel at least more equipped nobody's ever totally equipped for. We're not. We're just trying we're treading water and trying so hard to school doggy paddles. You say. What was your first job out of college? So I actually graduated college thing asking to be an actor, it'll be on the great white way. I feel like that's a really common thing. Yeah. So what happened? So it was it was a waiter and that was you know I made pretty good money actually and that was a believer. Yeah. It was for a little while, and during the during the days I'd go on these huge cattle call interviews, and we'll go into a room for about four and a half seconds and walk out and. That didn't leave me feeling. So felt so happy. So that's weird. So you weren't feeling committed being a waiter slash actor at that movement. Committed I was certainly not feeling creative. That's interesting, right? Yeah. Because you're going, you're going in having to all these different people and yet you're not feeling creative ray I started to look for some outlet some outlet where I could just get some energy. And A FRIEND CONNECTED ME TO NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION that that's soaked me. It was focused on lgbt rights and I started. There's my first office job. So I had no idea really what I was doing and. It was it was a warm environment where I was part of a team again like I felt. Being, part of a cast and crew Oh la cool connection. Yeah. And I've been in really the non profit space development particularly ever since. which was Probably pretty trying when you got in at during the recession yes. Yes. So I did start start working for a nonprofit organization two, thousand, eight in in fundraising. Yeah. So it was diving in head first. Would you say that was the start of the leadership shifts that you saw over the course here career? Yeah. It really was Both both leadership like. Top leader, Shammy News, everyone's at the supervisors, and then also you know layoffs that happened. Initially, and then you know in years later took a long time for many organizations, many companies. to really be able to balance their budgets and and Feel. That they could manage dated again. So. It was tough. Going through one round of layoffs within the first six months of being an organization, a small organization under under forty people is. Shocking cottage impact to you and your team. I mean that initially I think it's really easy to. Just. Feel the impact, the south impact and just feel defeated perhaps lost. Completely uncertain about your future the organization's future perhaps if you if. You're going to have a job next week But then you start to realize that you. There are other people hopefully you know other people to. Kind of commiserate with or find support in and I think finding that community even in trying times so important to. Withstanding such. Such adversity. I guess I think I think that's a really. Big Key. Sep Second to that I would say it's actually feeling. Invested in your company like liking your product or. Whatever it is, you know whatever the organization stands for really believing in the organization I think is key as well. I think that that's that's really true because. Because you also have to take a step back after that initial moment, the impact and realize, well, we still have to do the work right. Still, this is all behind the curtain we still have to deliver. Deliver the impact deliver. When is the goods you know our direct service whatever it is because we are here and it's the job is the onus is on us? Yeah and in your Particular case being in the nonprofit space that's even more important. You know I was in the for profit world. So Spe- real I mean we weren't A world now, we weren't necessarily changing the world is a great place to be but what you were dealing people rely on that in just such a different way. So I can imagine feeling Both that community internally. But also the pressure of like really impacting lives. Yeah Yeah. You could definitely feel the added pressure but I think that also helped. US All and particularly me kind of just strengthen our resolve. To move forward because. Because there were like what you said, there were people relying on us across the country and or or. Wherever. And we need to continue to fulfil. During that time. Did You Or do you recall making any like mistakes as a result of these changes either in behavior or just in the workplace in general? I think that. I did maybe once or twice. A allude to the fact that there had been. There's some uncertainty inside the organization and that things have just been a little unsteady and. What I realized that that impacted the person who who were servicing who were helping. So much more and made them you know? Unsure of. If the organization, you know the Livelihood Organization Longevity Organization and need them concerned and I realized that that I this we should still be operating. To our maximum of. Efficiency and efficacy maximum impact and that that is something that we should do and we they don't need to know exactly what's going on behind the scenes and so long as we are still able to deliver what we need to do and in your experience when a new leader. When a new regime comes in what? What am When a new regime comes in and? What impact does their style have on? Yeah exactly. I can see through you rate. Now we've got like this telepathic relationship if you didn't know. What Patriot? It's always it's always an adjustment of course, as as when a new pier starts. Right if tigger out your work style, I figure out your rhythm with them But I think that. In those times when The you know the periods between. Leaders when they're sort of transition. Mode everyone gets into a little bit of this Rolling up their sleeves helping out people departments you know different areas that they don't. They didn't perhaps anticipate they would but. They they do because because we all have to and I think that. That just creates more of a tight knit community and oftentimes, I think that when a new leader news supervisor comes in, they can sense that. and that that perhaps helps they're acclimation period, and also how they view their colleagues on their starting. But did you ever have a moment where you're like? What is going on here? For, sure. Because let me tell you. I've been there. Yeah. No I've definitely had those moments and and. They can even come and go during a time of transition. Right? When moment you're. You we got this and then maybe the next day some some small thing happens and you feel like you know the ship is perhaps thinking again. It's like in life were just. Constantly going like in and out of like taking on too much water to smooth sailing taking on too much water or maybe it's never smooth sailing, but it's like riding high on the wave. So that's what it is. It's as constant taking on water high. You know high above the wave and just like why can't I just have smooth sailing I think that that's a great point right when when particularly when there's kind of transitioning leadership particularly when it sudden. You can easily get to a place where you think there is smooth sailing and you think your to day even when leadership was status quo was mu sailing but that's just not how it goes and so it's always you know it's easy to think the grass is always greener but you're probably feeling assert I was feeling certain ways uncertainty. Leader wasn't place. So you know it's interesting because you you've brought up a couple of points in relation to leaning on good communication in the workplace to help your cast or cohort kind of like work together and really be able to message accordingly. So that everyone is calm cool and collected because I like a liberation as well. But you know part of what we Had discussed earlier was also the idea that when you're coming from a more creative environmental process driven environment, you can kind of like if not lose yourself kind of like stumble, you just bring a different partier brain. Into a new experience and I think that when you have a bunch of seasoned people in the industry in the company, you know they start to get really The you concert to get narrow invasion. So when you bring somebody from the outside in or from a different. Type of thinking or different industry, whatever it is, you're really able to have this. Important, you know outside perspective to. Move things forward in a new way in there such a short window to really capitalize on that. If you're not, you know asking them questions in the first six months eventually, they're just GONNA get right in line with the way you're doing things. So, actually funny because we talk about this all the time in terms of even when you have like dotted line reporting and matrix kind of reporting. Or Organizational Structure it's really interesting the way that you get. Direction and perspective depending on who that senior leader is by project for example rate. So it's great. To, hear you talk about being able to take on that opportunity to actually push forward the Organization of course because you're getting paid. But. More importantly. Right because you're trying to find purpose through whatever it is that you're doing, you've also been fortunate to work in the non profit space in areas that you are passionate about which actually makes me wonder. You know or have there been like mentors or leaders that have been helpful to you in sort of navigating that at all. Sure Yeah I mean. Once I got into the the nonprofit realm. You know it's a it's a relatively tight knit community particularly when I started in the LGBT space, and though there are only so many lgbt. nonprofits and it's a, it's a small realm. So you meet a lot of people and you build relationships and you know one of the things that I really learned about not just development but really any. Professional Life adulting in general is everything is relationship driven in it really is so much about. Continuing to put yourself out there to meet people and to stay in touch with people and that. For the most part. Focus want to help each other. In particularly if you if you meet somebody. Gives. Me when you're younger and like a supervisor or a colleague and they just kind of take you under your wing a little bit especially when you're you're fresh out I, I started my i. I organization blink I don't even know to use the copier what is happening here. Finally none of us. But like those relationships are some of the longest lasting and the most meaningful and I've definitely had those throughout my around my career that Afar. Wonderful. On on the flip side. What's been the hardest thing during this current stage in your career and thinking about like your pather journey I know we had offline Combo about it and I was hoping that you could kind of like share your your your thoughts. You know I think that's. The hardest thing for me to sometimes grapple with his I can't predict the future and I don't know my trajectory unlike some fields where there is more of a linear path say if you don't change careers You know I I I couldn't tell you exactly where I'm going I've I've been able to do a lot of different things within the nonprofits based primarily in development, but even outside of development of programmatic work communications, sort of marketing things like that. And I think. There's a lot that. that can kind of translate you can parlay that into many different things and so if that looks like working for a much larger institution in a different role or perhaps going the. The leadership route from small organization or you know pivoting altogether the long term really sure where life will take me. But I'm also. I'm not worried about it. I do sometimes think what am I doing with my life? Oh, but don't we all right to literally by were here I mean. It's a daily yeah. Thanks again. For sharing all of your knowledge with us today on how to survive leadership changes. Wasn't that agree understanding of what you're experience was going from. A more collaborative environment until like a process everyone but came on the other side just surviving really thriving through. I, love hearing people's experience around career change in any respect. So I love that but I really relate so much with him when it comes to leadership change and how How to really process it managed through it and come out the other side feeling better than ever and today we have a great expert here to talk with us about just that we have Mike Valentine with thirty years in the corporate world. He certainly has some experience to share. He's a professor at nyu on human. Resource Management, and he is an executive coach with partners international and he's an avid marathoner. Welcome to the medalists Mike. Thank you. Thank you. Glad to be here. Thanks so much for joining us. We know you'RE A. Man So we appreciate your time here with us today we were talking just before getting started about how you actually entered into this field, and so we'd love to kind of share that with middle if you will. Yeah. It's actually not a direct path and It's it's turned out to be extremely fulfilling for me but I would probably make the the argument that I have been doing coaching for for most of my career in one capacity or another I am a an avid lifelong learner. So I have a tremendous curiosity and I to some degree I. Guess I would argue I have a little bit of a nurturing personality so. I'm always interested in trying to listen to how others make meaning of what their world is and listening for the cues that might be helpful for them to think about frame their meaning making just a little bit differently. So I'd argue I've I've I've been in this space maybe not with the formal title of executive coach for a very, very long time and in talking just a few minutes before this Mike looked into my soul and said. You used the word needs multiple times. Let's talk about the word need whoa Mike Whoa I mean. Well. That's all I. Just don't even know how to to move on from there because it is such a good question you know finding those keywords you're very good at it will when we're talking about needs we can focus in on what ends means were transitioned to the nonprofit world. Specifically talked about that. Difficult transition from what he thought. He was going to be doing into something else. But do you find that it happens with middle or millennials transitioning from one career into another? ABSO absolutely I mean look there. There are some components of the process of change that cuts across all all generations and what we find is that we tend to focus on all of the things that we believe are going to be different and don't anchor ourselves around what's staying the same and in one of the. Things that struck me about aliens. Comments is the need to connect with his colleagues and that at the end of the day, it still about delivering to the customer, right so that's something that's a perfect example of something that is staying the same and so I think with with change in particular it is important for us to understand that in the midst of the drama around what we believe is going to be different. There are lots of anchors that remain consistent and that Tom can provide comfort. That's really interesting that you note the change between. One job to the other. But are there any parallels are things that you realized that go into the topic of when you have leadership change and maybe some of the components that are parallel there. Of course, we you know we all deal with change at a lot of different dimensions and one of the One of the challenges when a leader is new to an organization or there is a leadership changes is obviously the unknown and we as individuals we tend to want to be. Consistent, we find comfort in the status quo with were. To some degree hard wire, it's hard wired that way. And and I think when you have a new personality that is part of the mix, we got a reorient all of the relationship building that took that took place to that point, and so there's a lot of unknowns around. Around what that's going to look like raising vulnerabilities, there are security things that start to surface with regards to how we may sit with that new individual as they as they enter the scene. So there's a lot that's that's going one and I think one of the. As. An individual both as a leader and as an individual who's experiencing new leader coming into the into the system if you will. It's really knowing who we are and how we deal with change. It's it's the the whole. Concept of self awareness. And understanding what we're bringing to the table in in dealing with that situation. So important. Did. You feel that his kind of intuition guided him, but did you feel that that? Happens to most people who you come in contact with or what do you see as like the common pather maybe resources or folks that people turn to kind of figure that out. Well. It it's interesting because this is one of these elements of life that each of us deal with slightly differently. although you know we've known for for some time that there are some common threads we all want to when we're in a situation where there's ambiguity when we feel stress when we're anxious, we tend to reach out to people that were comfortable with. So reaching out to colleagues that sense of belonging that you're part of a bigger system and you're not going through it by yourself is important to us as as human beings. So one of the things that certainly in mentioned in in his comments was related to you know wanting to help his colleagues. Understanding that obviously, he was experiencing change but also that he had colleagues that he was used to being around and wanted to be of assistance and support to them as well. I've found the same thing that community. Really helps take you through whatever the changes leadership change being one of the most dramatic. Shifts in organization can see because. Both when somebody leaves and then when somebody comes in both sides of that causes a certain amount of chaos on the on the former it's all of a sudden. There's this internal struggle like people want power. Right. So it's who's GonNa grab the power paragraphs. That's we call it, and then on the flip side when the new. person comes in. It's all Abou-, impressive being and also like trying to stake your claim. And at all levels at impact you because. Naturally. How would it not but what are what are you think I? Think you talked about the self awareness as being key in these moments. Can you talk a little bit more about? I guess becoming self aware. Thank you because you actually mentioned to know how or know who we are and how the things you know, what are some tips, sir, or things to do to figure that out for yourself. So lot of. A lot of reflective work asking yourself. In the moment when experiencing and you know we as humans, we think we obviously have a rational side of our our brain and we have an emotional part of our brain We tend in the organizational space to focus on the rational piece. Right we sometimes lose focus on the emotional piece but when you have those moments moments that matter where you feel agitated or you're anxious or you're. Worried about what what comes ness next? Yourself. Where's that coming from? thinking about in reflecting one other change that you've had in your past that has that you handled really well, and the lessons that you took away from that and also those change stories that may be you would like to have had a different ending towards an and asking yourself. You. Know what? What would you do? Different if that situation presented itself again so I think part of. The self-awareness process really comes starts with reflection self reflection and asking yourself building the discipline in the practice to to ask yourself in the moment what's going on? What's what am I really feeling? Why am I feeling this we all have. Assumptions about what we think is going to unfold in front of us. So part of that process is just challenging those assumptions and and and really looking for, and you know how do I really know that that's what's really what's happening or what's going to happen next for Ian Specifically, he talked about it in terms of being able to influence management and I thought that was an interesting comment and realization for him to make given everything that was happening like. Outside of working with like your core directly, do you find that there are other ways of selling through your ideas and influence in that type of environment that don't necessarily involve that cohort kind of collective? Yeah it. It's interesting because in any leadership change, you know that leadership is about the process and it is the process of how formal leadership those who have the title in an organization influence others, and there were all of these moments where in informal leadership can emerge and so in this process where you have a new leader who enters the system enters the organization, the team, whatever it is, there are opportunities and I always i. Always like to use the the analogy of gifts right there. They're all of these opportunities for the new leader to explore be curious about the folks that may be reporting to that that person and there were all of these opportunities for the informal leaders may be. The direct reports are other team members to emerge in an informal way and influence How that new leader actually comes into the system so I I would say. This all this conversation around change and in particular new leaders who come into an organization and enact change really comes down to everybody who is impacted by that change both the leader in the informal leaders. The other team members to really understand that there's a balance and leadership is about a process that everybody's involved with, and there are opportunities for each each party to provide gifts that that the organization can learn from and strengthen themselves around. It's there's something resonating between what? Elaine Walter off said earlier on in the season about. She found mentorship to be extremely important but she found that she learned just as much from her tease as she did from her mentors and I think that that's something that is echoed in sharing. I'm kate as well. So that is. A very prevalent theme here which I think is really helpful and what you're saying. I love so much. It just makes me think leadership is is more of a process, right but. The the biggest challenge in that is that humans are at the core of it and humans who are all fallible. And who have differing levels of leadership experience and different. Ideas of communication different baselines for literally everything different home lives that you don't know about NAVIGATING MAC can be it's probably a bigger challenge than even like just showing up into showing up in doing your job is the baseline of what you can do. But as Michael Shirt, there's the rational emotive. So there's a coming together So it's interesting because Ian brought up that that notion of finding purpose within his space. And it was refreshing to hear him see that. But do you find that people sometimes suffering silence versus going through the process of finding and reflecting? Yeah absolutely and There's a lot of science around how people experience change and the reality and the punchline of what we've learned about ourselves and some of its embedded in and in what we know about our brains and our brain operates. When were in what I called arrest different points in your life. When you're anxious or you're in an ambig- ambiguous ambiguous place that's not comfortable to you and one of the lessons I think is that everybody goes through the process at different paces and they all have different needs in order to get there. So absolutely, there are there are people who. Take a lot longer to go through that initial phase of a moving through change where they're still holding onto what was. And they need a, they need a process mechanism to let go to move onto that neutral place before they can start to get excited about what will be right. So there's you know you think about the process that we go through there. Lots of different analogies that coaches will use. All the way from the different stages of grief I'm sure you've heard that there are a lot of different analogies but they all basically center around this idea that we go through stages of thinking about and dealing with what we're being faced with, and so there are people who for a myriad of reasons do. Suffer in silence you always in an environment of change which were all surrounded with. There were always some percentage of individuals who are going to immediately resist the change they wanna hold onto what what is and they wanna hold onto it as long as possible. Again, some of that is a function of neuroscience. We we draw comfort from what we know. And so anything that anything that is outside of that box becomes a threat, and so we try to hold onto try to hold onto that as long as possible. So I think the role of the leader in that situation first of all, recognizing that people go through that process at different paces. And allowing people to express what will be necessary for them to move from one. Face, to the next. Perfect example sometimes. In. Order to let go, you have to have a ceremony. Burn burn books. Right, burn old. Men Or old policy that's now going away. So little things like that can help those those individuals who really are struggling with that movement from that I face to the second face to to make that move the point I would leave your listeners. SWITH is the B- in any environment of change. The place to really start with self is to really reflect on who you are. As an individual to reflect on your when you brought your best self to the change process and when you brought your worst self to the change process and ask yourself what did I learn from both of those situations? What did I learn about myself that I would change in the future and use that as a use that as a place to strengthen your change Capability or change accurate if you will thank you again so much think it's been a pleasure can't wait to have you back already for behind the scenes takes images, follow the Middle East on twitter and Instagram, and also visit the Middle Dot Com for sewed guide and much more.

But if you're cool with listening to a bunch of those talk about that stuff Please enjoyed the episode. Thanks for listening. You're listening to and everyone will come to another episode of books and a book club and podcast retrieve books. He's an easily author mining urban. You and i'm rewrite. You and i'm all sources right before this. I tried to do in for with a sexy voice and it's not worth. It was funny. Though i it into the last Last cut we're here today to talk about our june twenty twenty one book club. Pick happy endings by kim lamb. Which is our our second romance novel for this book club. And because last time. I was woefully inadequate for the discussion. We brought into romance novel. Experts to the podcast they are also my co host for the pop culture club which is a pop culture podcast. I also host welcome to the show hung win. And just do what the crossover no one wanted are asked for but we wait. I thought we were going to use our sexy voices. I roll up in the bedroom. Let's take off our clue. it works though. I mean you can't argue with the results i mean. I feel every episode of pop veers into romance novel territory anyway so it just seemed like a good like hey if i if i pick another romance novel can get haunted just on yeah probably are so honored or so honored that you thought of like who are the horn easiest nerds you can think of. Hana jess just reading reading. Sex books a lived experience but we read a lot of them. I'm really happy that you guys are on the show. Because i don't read a lot of sex novels so it's good to have people who have more frame of reference than than i do so thank you so much for coming all right. Let's we're going to try something new with our guest just to just to get to know you better so justin han if you want to let us know. What is your favorite genre slash trope in literature and also your current favorite bull border so hi. I'm jess ju- if you haven't already figured from the very obnoxious yelling just at the top of this episode i am a professional asian. My side hustle is romance novels of various sorts. My favorite like literary trope. I think has to be like like secret parentage. Like it's big and fantasy right. You're like you know they're you know they're special and then kind of revealed that there's some like secret lineage that ties them to a greater world a greater cause a different a different world We get like harry potter. Even though you know she's a fucking turf but it. I can't how influential that was to me Yes i love that. And my current boba order is the long cheese foam t from sun. Studio it's delightful. I actually just had one yesterday and yet don't look at how much i spend on boba orders every week so are also a fan of the race secret parentage. From star wars shut the fuck up was why are you. Bring the shit. No no good secret parentage. Good secret parentage. Okay like you know. In game of thrones. We have not gone to that point in the books. But i do think the show pulled that off beautifully before it just committed ally quasi was. Oh my god. I mean it was very obvious but it's still very like delightful executed until you know. They drove that last season off a cliff. I also have a lot of favorite troves enemies to lovers of forced forced to being some kind of situation like okay. And i'm going to sell i'm gonna i'm gonna. I'm search so exposing myself. But i think we need to be like very vulnerably honest to have a great discussion on this topic. So you know. I read a law fan fiction and fan fiction like you're forced to share a bed in like a some cabin for some reason that would never happen in real life and they're like oh it should his bed now ohno like each other and okay like chemistry and like now. We're love kind of thing. I'm so exposing myself. But yes we appreciate the honesty and han. I am han win. I am the senior culture editor at pslon. Which means i have read many books in my life. I guess and i don't. I'm glad you didn't ask like when was the earliest. You read a sexy because that was way early. My dad had a lot of books. So let's see favorite literary trope. Well i don't know how literary it is but it is also from fantasy. And i think marvin you know about this. I specifically like when a protagonist has to grow up in some sort of military academy and not just that but like i like to see them learning all sorts of like military skills But i also like when they are bullied at first and then they come some some sra martyr and then they have to overcome all of that stuff so Yeah i love that shit. I hate the actual you know actual military stuff but those books i love. I want say that's really specific but that's like half of fantasy right there fan true. I looked that and then when it comes to favorite rom com trope while i do enjoy an enemies to lovers and a marriage of convenience. I also very much like if they do it right. The fake relationship because some people are really good at it. And it's fun to make things up. I've even thought about this myself. I would be awesome at doing a fake relationship. Because i like no details about people. And i'd be able to play it up right But then some people are awful and that of course brings some humor and then there's always the sort of like surprise. I need to kiss you or hold your hand right situation. Oh talking specifically rahm khan troops. Because i got a list of those. Two jolted jolted before but how the glow up and now now for revenge ballons gray as far as my mobile order. It's very similar to dresses because she actually introduced me to that place so for me. I just realized that it has to be a very dark tea. Darker the better but with the cheese foam because that makes it nice and salty. Kind of like a carmo. Yeah and that's a welcome to book symbol or so glad to have you to hear especially because as you mentioned before you two are my go-to resident romance wrong com experts and so excited for our conversation So yeah let's get to it. This is your standard spoiler warning. We're going to be spoiling plot points and themes of happy endings. Although it's a romance novel so you know what you're getting going get a happy ending at the end of happy endings. I think it's pretty obvious. But if you're interested in hearing our thoughts about i guess the relative holiness of the book before jumping in yourself. I guess you can listen to us. Talk me for reading but Now that we've got out of the way rira once starts off with the book jacket description check. Same win is determined to make her sex toy business. A success proving to our traditional vietnamese parents that she can succeed in a non traditional career. She's made a fresh start in washington. Dc and her first pop up event is going well until she runs into the x who dumped her with a post. It note the last person. Andre walker expected to see in a soul food restaurant was the woman he left behind a new orleans. Their chemistry is still scorching. But he's desperately trying to save his family restaurant from gentrifying developers. The solution partnering with his ex to turn mama hazel 's into a vibrator pop up shop for hungry and horny clients. Thanks to their steamy truce. Both businesses start to sizzle and they're red hot desire soon reignites deeper feelings but when trixie receives an incredible career opportunity will pride ruined their second chance at happiness. Yeah so this is a truth that we did not mention the beginning which is second chance romance. 'cause that's the thing. Yeah me as the romance trope. Plebe i guess this is my first time reading. Something like this weirdly. I don't like it i. Don't it been done well. Okay yes exactly. Most of the time. I'm just like forget them. They're they're in the past where reason and that's how i feel about life but yes you're right. If they do it right then you can still feel the chemistry. And you're gunning for them. But i find it very hard to pull off. Yeah think about it They broke up for a reason. Usually one of the parties has wrong the other so you get over that fact in the first place and then you then it's also like but then if they were good together they should have worked so like. Why did they break. you know. it's like that question of why they broke up in the first place. It's really hard to get over. Which i'd make really that didn't affect me for this book. Yeah definitely before we get to the i. Guess the crux of the relationship. I wanna talk about just the fact that so. This is the second asian. Not asian focus because chris cautioned the main character was a white woman but this does more than why main character in it marvin but yes like the heroine in the kiss. Quotient was not asian american but the love interest was asian american so it still counts as a main character and we do get his point of view. I mean romance. Books need to be to hackers. Yeah i need to get the perspective of each partner in the couple sell. Definitely i mean still counts what. Everyone's experience reading like romance books. I guess specifically for han as like a vietnamese american. Romance starring like asians are still few and far between right. Yeah absolutely and i feel like most of the asian ones. i'm reading our contemporary. So because like yeah. I haven't actually read. I mean i guess the closest i read but it would be why a would be like a y a version of milan and sherry. Thomas had written it and so there was a romance in there but it wasn't like a sexy book because it was why a So that's the closest. I think i've gotten to reading an asian period Romance and that's that really tells you something because like a lot of the i guess white romances reread are a lot of mar historical Specifically regency are victorian period So we're like very familiar with those sort of tropes and that sort of language and those sort of like social. Moore's at that time. But i would love to read more period asian stuff because you know i mean i. I don't really know anything about that. Except for like kung fu films or something. So yeah so i. I'm trying to remember the first asian lead romance novel i read. It might have been kissed quotient. Actually i know there's a lot for most people. Yeah kiss. cushion was the first asian lead romance novel. I had read. But i had grown up watching a lot of k dramas and see drama so that really filled lino that hall in terms of my media consumption and i don't know if anyone else does. I've been doing this since i was young. I doesn't matter what i read. Who what the characters are supposed to look like. I just totally. Nor it. And i put whoever my like flavor of the month celebrity asian pop crush this place so i used to throw in like jay chow into these like regency dramas as romantic lead regardless of what this you know. He's like six foot three like blonde blue eyed like sea-captain and like no is jae jao. Yeah i guess that's the result of the scarcity of representation as we have to like we have to make our own head cannon where yeah captain i dunno. Fabio is definitely jay chow. Yeah i've definitely seen some more. I have not gotten to read them yet but there have been some recent historical dramas. There's one or historical books. I don't know if they would fall directly into the like the what we would classify as like romance novel which i think it is distinct thing But there's a recent book about like the titanic that centers like a chinese price. Stacey lee right. Yeah yeah the siblings traveling. On the titanic. Who i believe are like by racial chinese and like trying to like lay low and as as well i think Craig me around author christine malani or mill milan. She has recently written some period romance novels featuring eight asian characters. I just thought you mean. Courtney belong courtney milan so like when we were. When i was choosing the book for for june. I was thinking like okay. Well maybe happy endings. Or courtney milan book. I know she came out with the duke. Who didn't and you have. Asian love interest in regency england. So i was like. Oh that's interesting. But i want to see if we can read another contemporary piece because we're living in modern day society and just the premise of vietnamese american sex toy seller sounded. Really interesting. that i you know. I was just like we're going to. We're going to go with this one. Yeah i mean yeah. You know sex toy solar profession notwithstanding i mean the general plot the plot portions of we read this book for the plot of the story could be a homework movie. If you take all the sexy bids right. 'cause it's about like to professionals working in i guess kind of complementary but not really professions that like find each other and also rican know their their past romance and i i want to say it's a pretty standard rom com plot right. Absolutely i have to say that. I actually watched quite a few homework movies. Because they don't have to pay attention to them when i'm working. They are background noise. And they're incredibly predictable and literally. This plot was exactly like a lot of them. They do really like the Rekindling lovers sort of plot. Because i think it gives you a shorthand for creating chemistry And some and getting to know each other instead of believing that they fell in love with today's sort of thing so Yeah that happens a lot. And the oh i was young and i did something dumb. But you know we didn't talk about it and that's why we couldn't get things together And you know just everything kind of fell exactly. I mean we all know kind of like the the the path of a romance like you know. They have to get to the point where they're together again. They feel like it's going well. And then they have to have the little break-up right before they get back together at the very end right and so that's always something that. I hate watching on the hallmark channel. So really dumb. Like oh i walked in while you were hugging your sister but i thought it was a girlfriend or something ridiculous and this book even house. The took the overnight flight over to confess in front of an audience. Right you have to have make a grand gesture grand gestures. Yes you need a grand gesture. I think i totally agree with you on about the kind of the formula and i even like went through and all sorts like county at what point like. Why did we get our first kiss. What layer first physical contact. When do they fuck the first time And i think it's really funny because literally the first big sex scene is like right in the middle book. It's chapter like fifty dollars thirty six. I'll tell you my girlfriend. Like i've been reading this book for like a few hours now and they haven't had sex yet is. Is this book broken. I mean you are. You're missing out on the self sex the self love part of it because we do get a very big masturbation scene that that is unlike something that i've seen in a lot of these other books. Yes snaps to that. I did very much respect that. And how positive overall how sex positive of this book was. we love to see it a disclaimer. I went to berkeley and like drink. The fucking kool-aid and like we can talk more about like sex shops and all that you know sex toys and a berkeley has a fairly well known one called good vibrations San the san francisco store. That's like one of the pioneers of like de stigmatizing like sex toys and products and just making it like comforting and like open to a general consumer rather than some shady thing you buy like the back of a porn job or something like that. But yeah i do. I did feel a sense of like this. Taking a long time to get to the fucking and i usually don't notice because they do really good for play up until like build. They build tension up until the you know the the point where they finally do have like some kind of physical romantic relationship. i feel like the first chaff. You chapters of this book are very exposition heavy. And it's a lot of tallying and just like we're supposed to know that they have a pass relationship we're supposed to know they're both sexy and like they they like each. You know that there. There's this fire fire connection with them but we don't really get that until right before they actually have sex during the you know the big pop up party scene where he has to kind of save her from like a drunk woman so i was like i was kinda wishing. There's a little bit more throughout that. We were getting low more back story about their initial relationship and so we can understand why they're so drawn to each other. I and you know more that rather than like the background story. Repetitively said of certain things. She did find that. She repeated certain facts of their histories many many times throughout the multiple chapter of no sex of no sex yeah. They're reminding me not that they had sex. It's reminding me that they're like his mom died of cancer at. That's kind of a bolder. The larry valid for the character. Totally get the character's backstory. But you know trying to get horny. And you're like his. Mom died of cancer. Whole speaking of backstory. So ten can lomb the author. She actually runs body bookworm worms body as and be a wd y and it's a subscription service where which pairs erotica books with sex toys. And i was like. I remember when i was reading this i was like. There's a lot of descriptions about sex toys. Obviously it's about a sex toy seller. And i'm like these are very descriptive. The usages are very descriptive. I wonder like how much weird research a tin ken. The had to go through and it just turns out that that is her like hustle. And i was like oh respect respect. She's living the dream you know hurts to see people living your life your your dream life. Yeah i got a very clear impression of what the various sex toys look like. Including the whimsey which i had not seen before so i'm not gonna go necessary into but like it's interesting because it's very flexible and and you can have many uses for it so i was like okay i clearly. I only know the basics and yeah. I'm sure like the industry has gotten way further than i had ever seen. The last time which was to way too long that i was like the pleasure trust which is l. a.'s probably best known sex toy shop But yeah so back. Background for Trixie i do have to say it was interesting. I'm always interested when i get to see a vietnamese character because i want to see how much vietnamese they put in there The language but also the other stuff in there and then also to see how it compares to my family because not all families are like but there were definitely moments. Where i was like. That can't be real so all the food i recognize which was great I'm also taking duo lingo. So i'm better at reading it. And and i liked the food descriptions. The the parents seemed incredibly open minded. And that's legitimate question. Hot as as our resident expert vietnamese person. How many sex toys would you have to sell for your parents to be okay with you. Have to be the jeff bezos like dildos. Right before your parents are like yeah. We own up to that. It doesn't matter if you own your shop this to be like now. We don't know that bitch. No they would say something else. Have a euphemism shown accountants. Know she's yeah. She's onto online sales like internet. You don't know what it is it's fine. She makes money. I think there's that also there was a point when i think the mother said you know. Why are you doing this business. You don't need that if you love each other. And i was like love like that's never been mentioned family. I don't know her what what is love. I don't know her parents still love each other. They're just parents like we didn't see any of that in my family. I think other families definitely like. I think my my my cousin has parents who are a bit more affectionate in person. There's that i do have to say you know good for trixie not to have racist parents. Not not the case in my family My cousin in particular has dated quite a few black men and Her her mom doesn't know anything about that because they have literally said that they would disown her. So yeah yeah. I was wondering because they alluded to the father having a talk with andrei before he decided to like ghost trixie. And that's the thing we didn't mention this the reason they're former lovers is because our honored as piece style leaving a post in the one day and left her to like deal with her parents after telling them they she warrant to not be pharmacist which is a dick move But yeah like. they mentioned. He mentioned several times all her father had a talk with him and i was like who. Is this what they think it is. But i guess the book didn't go there. Although i kind of wish it did i will also say just like for background. Because i think it's really important when a book is like quote unquote own voices. Ten kim is also in an interracial relationship with a black man. She has she has a blog which is very famous. I'm not the nanny. And she writes a lot of family blogs about like how to raise biracial children and like her struggles as like an asian american. Mom who's trying to teach her culture to her children and like make them feel proud even though they don't look as vietnamese as other vietnamese kids. And yeah just. I thought it would go there to into the racial clashes between like asian and black interracial couples. But it didn't go there. And i'm not sure how i feel about that because it's like wouldn't i feel like it wouldn't be light. It wouldn't have like that promise of of like fluffy sexy time. If i honestly i think it would have given it a little more depth to the characters because since it was missing. I felt almost like i didn't know them. My my brother actually is married to a black woman so my nephew is also biracial. And i've always like wondered. If he understood that at some point he was have to give the top to my nephew and he. He's definitely been my. My brother has definitely been like less aware of some of the tensions in america until the last year or so which is only the first time when i heard him actually say anything about like. You know supporting black lives matter So yeah i think he he he kind of lived in his own bubble for a while even though you know of who use married to and his own child so yeah i think i would have been good even if it was a happy. You know sort of like way that they resolved it to have mentioned if there were any sort tensions if the parents had to you know get over it or anything like that or even if the parents were fine but maybe like. There is an aunt or someone if they didn't. She didn't want to vilify her. You know the parents in the book so yeah. Yeah i do feel like that. That aspect was missing from the conflict. i also feel like the grudge between her father and herself over her choice of career wrapped up a little bit too cleanly we i. I have a question about this. All right so when i was reading this and i was just i was summarizing it to dan as i was reading this and i was like oh like trixie is scared to tell her parents. She wants to become a therapist. I thought like being a therapist is considered like an actual occupation to asian how households they might not believe in therapy but it could be like white people will pay for that shit so yeah i think it's like are you going to get the doctor it to be a therapist. That is more acceptable. But you're just gonna do the because not all therapists is. It's it's unlicensed profession. but it's not a doctorate like professionals like psychiatrists or psychologists. So maybe that's just like grow. He's just say a psychologist. I guess that's includes that re- reunite media to go to med school. What does she sucks at. If the parents can't tell their friends that their daughter is a doctor. Then why even have a daughter right but it's also like did you have to have the three kids. She's one of three kids. She's the youngest and the other two siblings like our did do like the traditional proud parents jobs the youngest. Yeah four licensed to wherever the hell she wants as the youngest child who has a sister who got her mba. I'm fucking theater major. Like my parents did not care. Okay there should have been a little more chill. I think yeah. I think so. I mean they probably didn't foresee that she would start selling sex toys. That would definitely be. That's more scandi than be like a traveling salesman like doing that. And not even the marketing for like a site that sells but actually being the one selling the Sex toys is like more scandi than like dropping out a farm school. Yeah i mean okay now. Here's another question. I have and i mean this might be a generational thing. Do those like tupperware. Parties with sex toys really happen still i. I don't know if i've ever attended one. But i've also never wanted to attend one because it sounded horrible. Isn't like normal people just by their vibrators off amazon. Yeah or if you go to a store you don't go with a bunch of girls like i don't know like here's the thing i don't love the in general the bachelorette party vibe and so that's just maybe me and by vibe i mean like the atmosphere not the vibrator good one zing. But so maybe. That's why i don't like the idea of going to any of those type of tupperware parties including ones that includes sex toys because there's a lot of drunk women you know literally is drunk women talking about a product and i hate being sold to. I hit selling things. I was like good for you. Trixie because selling is probably one my most heinous jobs ever. So yeah i some people dooms though like i've been invited to so many of these things and i just tell yeah i mean i'm sure it happens because a mowlam's exists and that's all they do but essential oils is like the news thing you know you can post on like a facebook group. I don't know if you was like hey selling in no silicon dildos and vibrators clip massagers. Get yours for me today. maybe a harder sell. Yeah i i also was just like when i was reading it. It was interesting hearing and reading the descriptions of each toy. And whatever. But i wasn't like getting excited like women work so i was like. Am i supposed to get like turned on or excited by the possible idea of using this toy in this situation. Also i'm just not a toy person. So maybe that's it I it's interesting that she at one point said The the biggest sex organiser brain Which sure but also your skin but But they didn't. They didn't appeal to the brain enough. I feel and that's why like for like when it came to like not enough for play in the book for me. It wasn't like the little foreplay i wanted. I just wanted them to like you know flirting and talk and whatever more you want to simmer more you wanted to like. Yeah yeah. I had one more thing to say about the the daughter. Father relationship is at the end when they made up. And we've seen this story before. It's kind of become a trope of asian american media which is oh. They've loved the all along even product all along. These don't know how to express it. Which i get because that is usually how it works. But in this instance. I was just had a hard time figuring like usually apparent giving the assign treatment. It usually lasts like a day or two before. It's as if nothing happened at least in my family like a two year long silent treatment. That is something. That's way more like deep and harder to get over. So i had a hard time buying a. He would like get over it right away unless the heart attack. It's to do with it. Maybe maybe that perspective. But i didn't get the sense of that from from what i read. Yeah i mean. I totally hear you are. Family is just like get angry. But then don't say anything and it goes away and then but we do in my family. Hold very deep and long grudges. That like i mean i once had like. I was the recipient of some sort of intervention where my brother brought up stuff from like ten years ago like dude so yeah i think that's totally real and just good point that if you can hold i don't even want to call it a grudge but you can. You can hold something someone for that long. You don't just get over it so maybe it was the heart attack. But they didn't really say that right. It did seem like all of us and he's like look up in proud of you long. I've been loving you along. That got real either or maybe it's just yeah. I still don't think you know even even if they would accept her and have like you know forgiven her. I'm using that in quotation marks. Because there's really nothing to forgive but of course in there is. They have forgiven her for dropping out of pharmacy school and pursuing this other career like you would not have that explicit in the rain like like discussion like that explicit of like resolve very. Well you don't even get that one like your parents are like on the death bed. I think it's just you as an adult. The adult child of like immigrant parents. Sometimes you're just like i know it. I just know it. And i don't need the validation from them anymore. I know it and move forward. Best navy this. Maybe but maybe this is the true fantasy part of this book. Not the romance patrol. Part of this book is the fact that a self may tech bro will go back to his community to bill it out. And i'm so glad you brought this up because this is like the most okay. Here's the thing about contemporary romance books. I am not the biggest fan of contemporary romance. Because it's really hard to get it. Because i live in contemporary time. So there's something that doesn't match my lived experience or perception. Sometimes it's very hard to get over that. And so that's why i typically read you know period I'm a big victorian regency fan. I also just. I'm a history. Nerd and victorian culture has a lot of british in british your victorian culture as a lot of like built in like taboos when you break them. It's suber sexy but yeah contemporary fiction. I feel like if you're going contemporary romance fiction because like i am basically tricks these age. You know. we've all had x.'s. We've all had sex. Maybe marvin no just kidding. And so like. If it's something doesn't ring true takes you out of the world and takes the out of the world building in the fantasy and i got some of that with the language she used in the sex scenes both the dialogue and how she describes some of the body parts. There's a spectrum. There's like my delicate flower to the penis right and i think all romance authors have to choose like where in that spectrum they wanna land. But it's i totally lost my point. What was the first point. I stuck contemporary romance. Yes so it can. That's like so contemporary romance. I think is incredibly as a little more difficult to hit one hundred percent of the time because we live in it. And if it's something that's not in your lived experience than like why like i don't think you believe it. Yeah i totally understand that. Yeah i there are definitely contemporary romance authors. I very much like. But i think it's kind of like with period romance while period romance authors end up usually writing twenty billion books but i think when it comes to the period romance authors. I know you like jess. I do have to say that. That person is in particular very good at what she does. And i do feel like when it comes to contemporary authors. It is a it is harder to right. because we're so familiar also with those tropes when we watch them on rom coms so for them to make things feel fresh but also specific and authentic It takes work so yeah. It's a hard gig like of course this is something i've been wanting to write myself and then i just read this and i'm like even though i'm being critical but i do better and i was like i don't know it might end up being sounding like robotic whereby the numbers you know speaking of like you know lived in experience and contemporary times. I wanna like the the most refreshing thing about this book was the fact that it was so sex positive that you do have an asian american woman who is you know all about vibrators and going to clinics and giving out sex ed talks. That is at least for me. I did not get the talk at all in my house. There was like no mention of sex like my mom. Never took me bra shopping. I to like do that by myself. Mortifying and i did it. Because i was bullied and it was just like it was. It was a whole mess. And i have. My youngest brother is seventeen years younger than me so my mom was pregnant before that too so both times i had to go get a pregnancy test for her. I bought. I bought a pregnancy test at like. Cvs and i would bring it home. I went to all of her doctors appointments with her. It's just like yeah. My my sex ed like came very weird moments where the parent is supposed to be teaching you but you just end up like learning everything by yourselves. And i don't know if that's the same experience that you guys had. I wanna hear justice. But then i can go line one hundred percent so my my version of the sex talk was when i was eighteen years old. Which is in any of typical. I think teenage household teenage experience is too late to be having the sex tile. Yeah number me though. So she got me like before like i was wild in but her version of sex talk was as i was driving in a moving car to go to like roger dim-sum. She's like you know she's just try to wait until you're an adult very vague like what isn't adult. Does that mean like when. I have my own money. Does that mean when. I'm out of the house. Does that mean eighteen years old. Like i don't understand she. Just just wait till you're an adult. And i was like what she's like. No that's it. Like all i got but thank god that since i was basically thirteen i was doing a lot of research on my own. I think partially just very curious. And like went down rabbit holes and i was very lucky i found some really great guides about like you know like periods and like like like sex and like i think i was very fortunate to land on the right side of the internet through my god. It wasn't even google. It was like the neo. Not not neil. That's a very different very different. Not no intersection of sex and neo. Pets i hope. I think it was a secret right news or like something with a compass. It was like it was like a browser. Like that's how old was and that was just like you know when you're when you're no parental vision on the internet and you start you know. Google you start like searching for like nadi things. But then i somehow ended in the informational section about like periods. And what's normal and not normal and like all this stuff. So i was like very theoretically knowledgeable absolutely no experience. No nada not a hot ticket in the high school years. If you can believe my mother used to say that i had a castrating aura which she told a teenage me. That like yeah. I don't have to worry about you. You have like a really like castrating aura. Like in chinese the thing. I mean it certainly really well because in hindsight high school boys are trash. Marvin you're probably a fucking piece of trash. And like you know. I would any sane person would not let a high school boy you know. Ruin those experiences with them. But you're not seeing it fifteen sixteen seventeen when you're hormonal hormonal monster. So i think i did actually turn out to a lot of books and like for that romance not even sex just like the romance and the desire industry and like all that. So you know thank you. Thank you books for saving me a lot of real life heartache and experience i lived through it during the books and in all my real relationships fairly healthy so thanks berkeley. So thank you for landing on the right side to the internet. It was like neo pets and like blogs written for young women about period out so for me. It was a sort of a mixed thing i remember very very young. My mom drawing pictures of lopion tubes. Oh and worm but that was as far as it got. We never got to the actual external organs. So i was just like what is this is like boring and then and so that kind of stayed in theory and then my dad was the horn dog so we had a bookshelf in the bathroom. Where we all kept our stuff to read. 'cause you read in the bathroom and so while my mom read things that we left there like charlotte's web my brothers and i were reading playboys and then my dad also was like a huge book reader to so there were a lot of like raunchy books. I read erica jong pretty young. So i started off with with sex books and and didn't get to romance until i was like in my twenties. Probably so yeah. I i i was like. Oh this is very interesting but it was also that meant that the plots were very adult not even sexual like yes. The sex was adult but like this plot. Were like horrible because people are being awful to each other. They weren't like nice romances. They were like backstabbing cheating. And all this other stuff. Oh speeds sex and books and i tell the like for chocolate store so for those of you who do not know like water for chocolate is like a piece a literary work. It's like not smut. It's a beautifully written novel about a mexican family and there's a lot of like magical realism and a lot of sex. So this is a book that was available in my public library and me as an eight year old used to walk there with her grandma who did not speak english and i had read through all the kids and they were boring so i was like. I'm going to look for a bigger book. And i saw this book that was like ooh. I like chocolate so i checked this book out. I read it through. I don't realize until maybe three quarters of the way in that they're even talking about sex because it's so there's so much allegory in it like you know she. Basically the main character can cook so well that and she's transcending her feelings through her food. And i'm just like and then like literally like a light bulb went off in my head. I'm like oh she's not talking just about hot water. That's an allegory. Oh and i literally went back to the first page reread. And i was like yeah. She likes and no one knew. Because i was just a very well read child. Yes you learn by reading yes. We were also taught learning by reading so great. Yeah parents books so maybe strategically if you are a parent who does now have the sex talk just put so yeah books around that. What about you marvin. As the sole dude on this podcast. When did you become trash. And are you still trash. Scott w my parents never brought it up. The assume at some point that i knew about it i mean i think i learned about the same way most people learn about it which is in sex ed class in like seventh grade seven proves that when we had it then i think if fair i think girls have a lot younger cousins a period may come earlier. That's know i think we definitely we have the biological education their fifth grade and then the seven three we have the. Here's how you use a condom like oh really. I don't think we ever got that really on the on the banana. No no never did. This is the state of our public education. Guys teach your kids how to have safe sex. And then when did i become. I mean i figure i it'd be about. I figured it was around the same time. Everyone in my pure group did which is when the internet became widely available and then we had unlimited access to porn. I'm sure kids nowadays. That's how they're learning. Instead of reading books they find it on the internet of differences for us. That didn't happen till like maybe almost at the end the middle school like high school. Like that's one. Yeah we had the unfiltered access. Well the reason. Why i'm asking is like what i've noticed with my family and a lot of my friends families like four for the girl in asian families. He tried to shelter them as much as possible about sex but like for the sons in the family they get thrown into it early. I mean with like half of the men in in korea. According to a government survey back like what like three years ago like half of korean men have had sex with a prostitute at least once in their life and that is just like that's tied to like a lot of asian baggage with like misogyny and sexism. But that's why i asked because double standards when it comes to sex. Ed is is a thing i mean with two brothers. I can't. I don't know if my dad had a talk with them but i felt like my family in general's very repressive about everything so i think the books just being everywhere literally i read masters and johnson and there was a book called history of sex and stuff like that so i think they assumed that my brothers would also just pick stuff up as i did. My parents are so they like live through the communist revolution in the city in china mainland china. So they're like it's counter intuitive but they are actually very chill about sex because they live through the communist revolution and in china like it was their sex. Ed was very like whatever that you know. They're very big on population control and like like informing their patients of that and and like women did get more rights like not culturally at least on paper and you know in governments and in the party and everything so like. They both went to school. They both got to go to school. They both went to college in china. And then my mom. I remember when we were talking about birth control point when i was a teenager and it was just like for health reasons. But she was so like pissed off the american healthcare. So she's like. Why do they make the so hard like in china they just throw it from the back of a truck if you want to like they they'll hand it out to you like they'll give you an abortion for free. Like what is this. Like like morality or purity and i was like oh like our and since becoming an adult woman i love i low key. Love just like talking to my mom about it. She hates it. She does not want to engage in these conversations. Like like ma'am ma'am thirty you are. You know you've had to kit. Like when i have a i have a long term partner like we not fall in any one like it's fine. It's fine and she's like get so like she gets show like. Oh how dare you. And then but she will engage afterwards. So you don't think that you're going to be talking to her about sex toys anytime soon. I mean i think she would like have a fricken aneurysm. There's only so many limits you know that's that's a friend conversation. That's that's a friend's conversation. That's a friend's activity. Where you guys go out and like you know go shopping together. Yeah or we've gone long enough talking about visit romance book without actually talking about the relationship between the two main characters. What were your thoughts on this. Second chance. Romance relationship okay. bugging andrei. What the fuck. I would never forgive this man and he did. Bear did not do anything to earn back. Her trust or is sexy isn't enough to earn back on. Suck boy sorry like number one not like like dumped like like they were living together and then he didn't even like literally. I don't understand how hard it would be like. Yo i gotta go back home. My mama's cancer. Look i just did it. Four sentences and then like sh- then but so like already like andrei like what the fuck like you're such an asshole and then on the other side. I'm like trixie. Why are you jumping this man's bones. He fucked you offer so badly like god. Yeah i think those sort of the point where you're making when it comes to these second chance romances. They they're difficult to do. Because i think the way it can work is that we can see. Both characters have changed in some way and the only real thing i could see was. That trixie was more confident. Having done this job But she but it felt like andrei throughout the whole book. Even almost the all the way to the end was still not talking to anyone and accepting help from anyone until it was too late. So i felt like it's not that he had matured and and it had i don't know and learn from like let's say his mother's death and figured out how to seize the day and things like that he felt like very under develop still and and i couldn't so i it's like they described a little bit about when they had first gotten together only a little bit though it was just basically like they were flirting and then they were in bed and so i didn't really get a lot of their chemistry at all except for just sex like there wasn't enough banter or there wasn't enough something else that made me understand why they like each other except for them being hot for each other. Yeah i totally understand your point i like. I usually don't like this device in books. But i think this book could have benefited from like flashbacks. You know like Because i would have really liked to have seen how they got together like. What was the chemistry when they were younger. And just you know like saying like. Oh i've changed while what were you before. I just kind of need more of a frame of reference. And i don't know like with with andre. It seemed like what i was getting from him is he. He's a bit of an alpha boy. He likes being in control. He either his way or the highway and i guess he's softened up with age she has to meet he had to make a lot of compromises. But in general yeah. I don't think he changed all that much in terms of like learning how to lose control aside from you know letting trixie take control in bed. That was like the only part where. I thought like change in terms of like domination. But i don't know but he still wanted her to do what he wanted right. I mean she. She got to do the things that she wanted. I think that's a good point that they did show that in the bedroom and if they then showed the parallel in real life More that would have actually kind of helped me understand a little bit. Why she was like giving him a second chance. Besides just wanting to like you know sex them up. So yeah. I mean like you mentioned earlier. They repeat a lot of things early on about how hard it was for her. When he up in like ghosted her about how she had to pick up the pieces of for life by herself. I isolated from her family and like cut off and like thrown into this new world that he made her decide on without his support. And i don't know to me that sounds like something you can never like. That sounds like something you get. someone about. That is traumatizing. Ptsd like not even joking. Ptsd traumatizing level. x behavior. stuff like i know. People who've had maybe not the exact things but maybe like a similar magnitude and it literally changed the course of their perspective about love and their life and that enough like end of that person. Who did that harm. Came back into their life. I don't think they'd be like no. It's fine and then be like okay. Let's try you know talk again. You know it would be like. I feel like your body would have a visceral reaction of like no. This man is dangerous and hurt you. You cannot open up to him. I needed more than him explaining himself for her. Like forgive him okay and also do we forget that okay. What was this relationship because we get a sense. That in the two years two years that they were dating in new orleans he never told her about his family. What he did in dc like anything about his past. I'm like what did you do for two years. I think we've all been in the series relationship at some point in our lives. I feel like the family stuff comes up pretty early. Just wanna know like what they do and you know you gotta sister you got brother siblings our first date info so i've also just and we never we never get to see that like i was like okay. I guess we're two years. Did you just like nonstop. Fuck each other apparent which i guess is five. That's hot but also like but then if you're asking us to invest in the relationship part of why they should beat together why they have to end up together. I think it's a little tough. I understand her friend. Raina her anger against him so much more but then she let it drop pretty quickly too. So i was just like see. That's a sane person right there. She's telling you the truth but you're not listening to her Yeah no. I wouldn't have forgiven him. Yeah same here. Aside from like the posted break-up which is like who who does that. I mean in the age of cell phones and like webcams it's like the author created crafted. This like the most heinous way to break up with someone like the most traumatic way the leaves in the dust and then is the message here. As long as you're hot enough hours forgiven i guess. Maybe i'm thinking too much from his romance novel but the thought that came to me when reading especially since it doesn't seem like he he softens a little bit doesn't really fundamentally change. That's that's the thing. They're like aside from like the post at break-up like if he had changed dramatically if he had like fricken gravelled and my show that he was like a very different person who respected like women's choices. It i would have been. It would have been more believable to me as a reader but just like the way he treated women who weren't like trixie in his life. It was just very telling like he like with his sister. His sister is the co owner of his restaurant. But he's like not telling her anything about the restaurants troubles and it's kind of like well is it because you're the man of the house that you think that you have to do everything by yourself and because you're younger sister is younger and She's like a woman like she's not equipped to handle this same thing with like the elderly women in his neighborhood. It's like it's like. Oh i don't want to hear about like them being into saks. Like how dare you set up like a sex toy pop up in my mom's restaurant you're desecrating her memory where like women have sex women by sex toys like it's kind of normal. Yeah yeah and then the directions with andre and his best friend or pretty gross. I mean they just fairly blatantly objectify women in every seater together and then you're like are we supposed to be rooting for this and the ending with because like towards the end of the second act you find out that trixie. She wants to have a boutique. And there's an opportunity for her. There's this co op in a gentrified part of town and andre. Pretty much says. Hey it's either my restaurant or this co-op it's either the enemy or me and it's like why don't you think exactly what his dad did to his mom that he was so pissed off about i mean he has also into his sister what tricks his parents were doing to her to write like. There's a lot of just. I mean the tinkham seems to be trying to portray him as someone who is so Saddled with guilt of leaving his mother that he's overcompensating put at the same time. This is just too much of this. Like alpha male behavior for to be like anything but like is fundamental character. Yeah like the post. it's bad enough. And by the way there was a posted break-up in one of the city the city very famous yes. But okay. But i do have to say. He just never watched sex in the city. He did not get inspired for. But besides that. I'm like yeah right. He didn't gravel. He didn't do anything but he just kept pissing me off and that was the thing that really made me root against them so it was a very weird dynamic where i'm just reading this. I'm like don't be with him like just. Just get rid of him. he's no good. I again so again. I think this is another a like difficulty with contemporary fiction because when we are set in like the cultural norms of another time another culture. It's like oh we know. Those rules are stupid. Like from our point of view but you understand why the characters are operating these rules and when they get caught up kind of miscommunication. You're like okay. It makes sense the stakes make sense a little bit more. I think when we bring it into like a modern day when it's a woman female character that like it's fairly close to us. It's also like you know we ourselves into her shoes. And we're trying to envision how we would react and some of these situations you're like this is not a healthy relationship. This is not like like like like you. Guys aren't communicating well enough. You shouldn't really be having all these problems. These problems are all solvable. If you were just like slightly better more mature people can you please be slightly more mature people. But that's not good drama like that's not good romance drama. Yeah i think when it comes to the contemporary romances. As far as the things that keep people apart. I am very fine with people having like a flaws that are hurting themselves but when they actually turn around and hurt others when i'd like draw the line and so that's why i think for me. I just could not forgive this guy. Because it's not like he was he. I guess he had issues but he kept like lashing out at other people. And so that for me was just like nope unforgivable. Yeah i mean. I was totally rooting for trixie. I could care less about one hundred what he wanted and like a good ending for this book could've been just trixie seeing you know this. I'm i'm doing my own thing. Get with mike. That's so unbelievable. When he came on the way who is he and then they fantasy world where rich tech rose comeback and revived their communities. Well not. I was fully expecting and it didn't happen like there to be some flirtation between him and kisha but maybe that would be the second book. But yeah i was like this is what you do is you have to lay the groundwork for the next one and create that universe i did enjoy the dc representation. I've been eating center. Which is like were the the best vietnamese food is. I'm pretty sure this book is set in columbia heights because that is where the gentrification is happening at the most. At least when i was there worst was the most intense District market is such a dc yuppie name to give a brand new development. And yeah i mean it was missing. Things like getting delayed by the metric buyer Asked me the living dc. But it was kind of see like you know the different landmarks being being portrayed. I'm glad he actually brought up all that stuff. Because i've only been to dc twice. And but i always found it interesting. Because like i remember as a kid i was always curious about the places that vietnamese people ended up. So clearly you know. I grew up in houston and i definitely knew Like houston new orleans you know has that sort of like viet cajun. I don't. it's not a rivalry but we have that sort of viet cajun thing going on in the south and then i know they ended up in. Dc and unlike minnesota for some reason I mean it's always because of hosting families like and resettlement yet. Church groups are hosted families and stuff like that and And of course Oh see so. Yeah was one of those places where it's like whenever there has like. Wait my people here somewhere. And so i was. It was kind of fun to see that aspect of it in in the book. Yeah and especially if you have a friend whose family runs a restaurant. That is the only place to eat like anywhere else. You're a traitor to your friends trail. I'm glad that we did get another vietnamese american women character in the book. I really liked the fact that like zoe. She has a very unconventional career path as vietnamese american woman she runs like a plus size laundry shop. Her parents own a fall restaurant. And they're just like you do and that was nice because you have these parents who are very much not supportive about beer. Yeah i mean. I really did appreciate how you know. Know her very deliberate attempts to make this world inclusive write her The term boss babes is outdated. Though so i'm very. I feel bad because i was like. Oh that's i'm sure you know between the writing and editing and publishing like that's one that you know term basically has now come up has now a very like negative connotation. Yeah and it. Just you know the phrase on dog is like girl boss. Gay key gaslight so that some of it was like a little outdated But i did like the themes of the talking about gentrification. They're talking about Immigrant parents all these really cool interesting themes that we don't get in period fiction I was surprised though that for so one and for book that as the sex positive and focused around a woman who wants to be a purveyor of sex toys. It's fairly hetero normative Throughout the entire book not just the relationship but even the her parties and the toys and the the. I don't know how to say this just vibes. The visor very hetero normative in every great female let like center female You know like nontraditional. Sex toy boutique. I've been to has been very inclusive like they make a very distinct effort to be like we're queer friendly and like if you know every everyone is welcome so i felt that. There's a little disconnect there. There were two. I think instances of but is very slight like you said. I think it's definitely a book. That's very hetero. But i think there were two women in the in one of the parties who ended up. Who were together and then i think one of her friends had a vibe with one the realtor real estate. Yeah so but nothing happened. So this is a book where we're literally getting like census like he shoved her face into her pussy and then we're only getting like queer eighty five like. Yeah well. I think it was kind of like side characters. Didn't really get a lot. You know. I i liked zoe i think though he got most of the attention when it came to secondary characters and backstories which makes sense a lot of sense in terms of showing the dimensionality. Ray like comparison. I think we went over most of what we want. talk about. Do you have anything else on on on the list could talk about. It felt like an. I don't know if there's actually what it was. But if like the sex scenes in his book were very very long like. I think one three chapters too long for you marvin. I'm sorry. I do have a question for the panel all that spectrum of like her delicate flower to you know a erect rigid penis. Where do you fall on your preference of language to describe genitalia in romance novels. I'm not really for the flowery type of allegory and books. I don't know it's just like i don't want to like if you're going to save vagina just saved vagina. Don't say like secret garden or whatever that's just like not. I don't know vagina sexy though right. It's just like oh. Yes he tut. He entered the vagina. That's very clinical. I don't mind the flowery language either way it's you know it's as a newbie to this type of fiction however you describe it it still makes me a little like com triple. Sometimes i mentioned this before the podcast. When i was reading the kiss question i was reading it quote unquote via audio book in my car. O or their passengers though. There wasn't but there was Once i had to like literally pause it. So i can get my order from starbucks. The starbucks right through this book is not friendly in terms of listening to it in your car because yeah it's a lot of sack. I walk when what. I listen to audio books. I do have to say it is different more visceral experience when a voices in your ear describing sex scenes and doing the voices back and forth usually. It's the same person. Do both voices. So i i do have to say i probably prefer reading it at that point when it comes to more vivid sex scenes because also if i'm walking around there's people around me and that's weird is like when i read. Everyone has their story about one day. Red kiss cushion. So i was on a plane when i read it and i was just like holy crap. You know. it's like. I need to get off of this because i was like. This is way horn. That i thought it was gonna be. Yeah i did not expect kiss cushion to be that that horny because the covers very innocuous and very cute right like it's very cute because it's trying to all romance. Novels are like more illustrated covers my parents too. Because when back in the day when they had like the bodice-ripper like bodice for i. I actually got a fabric book cover so i could read those in public without without people knowing me. I love illustrated book covers and bless berkeley because they are still very very very horny but they have very cute covers. I give two shits about reading that in public. I will happily do so My my thing is. I have a terrible habit like you. Haunt of basically picking up a book for vacation travel. Or as i'm about to get on the plane and there are few things more uncomfortable than reading a super. Well written horny in the middle of us three week. Family vacations different country. Let me tell you. That's not fun and you're just like your like just clench clench clench clench or. I just breathe through it. Yeah crowded planes trains gars. This is what this is why you need the secondary genre so he can use us vacation. Maybe historical stuff my two daughters. I read on vacation are like these. Smutty mass-market romance books and world war two non. Fictions i switch between the two cool down. And when i need a heat up while those are some wild swings there the twist. I'm not reading the world war two non fictions to cool down. Just kidding just get. yeah well well. I didn't actually answering the flowery language question which i fall kind of inbetween where. I don't need exaggerated metaphors to tell me what something is so that i'm in. I'm noticing the language. And i think that also means that like if you're gonna use the word fucking cock and whatever that's fine as long as it kind of fits the situation but yeah when you are talking about vova that is getting a bit clinical so it really depends on the situation and also the action that is being described Because some situations are better than others. I did learn a lot about massage. Oils than like especially like the kinky current. I feel that he usa. That's scary man like you can burn some show at that i have. I have had some not so good experiences with some of that. Don't ob i'm scarred scarred. Psychologically i'm a bit sensitive. Sorry that doesn't sound fun but again to each their own. Like if that's your thing. But yeah i don't want things team building it. It sounds painful. What is it like a for the subscription box service. That i was talking about earlier. That tan kim runs there. There's a set for happy endings at one of the things that comes. The book are de flavored massage. Oils all their real. I don't mind lube lube is also always useful massage oils. I think as long as it didn't acta heat up. That's the thing like i don't want it to. Yeah i feel like it's awesome. Asian thing that like we don't like sweet things. Generally and a lot of these flavored products tastes like candy or like very sweet. And you're just like. I don't even like this when it's a non sexual product. I don't know if i need this like on. Someone's dick like it's i'm good. I'm good just the water. Base is fine. We're fine here thank you. I'm boring sorry. I mean and also like i'm just not toys person but i have a friend who's very much as toys person so maybe this would like appeal to her more and she'd be like oh i have that i don't know how team my we wanna get. We could take this off. But you know. Let's say also very personal preference. And that's the thing. Like i some of those some of the toys when she's describing them like took me out and i'm like that's not true. I mean it's just leave it there. That's not true. Here's here's the thing in in the book. At some point she does say like you know you have to take the batteries outer also ruins the machine and that's basically me. I have several toys. And i just ended up not using them. So that's when i was like i guess i'm not a person but i like i thought what you do. You just get them. But yeah i know about the battery rule because of my k pop light six. It's like i'm only going to use it for concert so i have to take out the battery life. She should i take yeah. You should battery acid in your lights in your room right. Now do that outside. You don't wanna burn your bedsheets sheets from taking it out to clarify. Were just talking about k. Pop stan line. This is not an allegory. This is not a new section of the spectrum where the it's not even flowery allegories. It's like k. pop allegories no. We're literally talking about k. Pop lights nothing else. They look like vibrators. Say light sticks look like sex stories. Yeah i thought at some point. There's going to be some sort of crossover. Like hey i need an immersion blender but oh i only have a vibrator hawn dot the number okay. I was just like this could have gone very poorly immersion blenders. It's the stick with the open. Blading and make soup and i thought we were going into the bedroom and i got scared into the kitchen the vibrator into the kitchen wows you sanitary either you. That's why you have to have a condom on it. Although well should we start wrapping up. Yeah we should start wrapping up. I guess like closing thoughts. I had some criticisms about this book particularly about the romance particularly about andre. I would never forgive someone who broke up with me in that manner but per- personal preference. I really did like the sex positiveness of tricks. He's character and this is only the second book. I've no that's not true. But it's it's very to see asian american protagonists as love and trips especially in sexy novels so it really did break some new ground. Now i have something else other than the kiss quotient. Whenever someone asks me for a book with a sexy asian american lead but yeah overall. I thought i thought it was pretty good. Not my cup of tea but it might be for some other readers out there. Yeah i mean for me. This was literally the second romance book that i've ever read Both of them featuring asian american protagonists which was nice. I i think. I echo everyone else here on this pot which is loved trixie as a character loved her confidence and her like dry then her story arc could care less about andrei. His sister was coy. Guess but as like a relationship. I feel like she could do better and i guess the sex teams were good. Because i don't know yeah echoing sentiments. Y'all said love the sex positivity. I think that is something we just need. More of in romance novels going forward. I love the sexual agency that are female main character has and has definitely something you do not get most period books so you know that is definitely a pro for the contemporary side And i will say that the you know the sex scenes are still fun like even if the sizzle may not be as much as i wanted getting there once we get there. I'm just like i'm enjoying this. Yeah there it's too hot people fucking Kind of hard to say no that. Are you know. Be mad at that And i i do love the fact that trixie is such a you know. We've been talking. So much about how burr sexualization of asian women like media and content. I don't think this is it. Because she is very grounded in that she's motivation and she has you know very she's very holistically built and yeah at the end of the day she has agencies up. Can't it's hard to be too mad about that. I think i'm still allen. Fong stuff is probably still my favorite when it comes to asian american and contemporary adult romances. I've been reading a lot of y. Asian stuff and those are great but when we were talking about like adult sexy stuff. I definitely leaned that way. But i've actually been reading quite a lot A lot meaning like more than five. Contemporary adult asian american romances. And so i'm kind of. I'm glad like even though this wasn't maybe my favorite there were aspects of it. I've really enjoyed Seeing first of all an interracial romance with a black man which is something that like is real. Obviously based on her experience but We just don't see that. And it's particularly because of you know. Asian american feelings so i was very happy to see that even though i did not like andrei very clear did not like andre. I'm sure he's hot though. So i'm excited. I think it's also interesting that this is the second like really sexy thing that like you've read For this and it's another vietnamese woman. Yeah the i have a book coming. It's on hold but it's coming soon. Which is a love story. Which i'm excited to read and i feel. Oh yeah. I really hope. There's some good food sex stuff in there. Because i was like there wasn't that much year the full of stories are as hornibrook though. It probably isn't horny. It's seems more like love. Yeah rome like isn't that why. Why are sneaking which they the black a lot. Yes yes yes because like. The covers are so like similar in terms of like marketing. Because they all are kind of like more illustrated. There's a lot of tale. That's being put into romance novel. As i i also like was like i couldn't tell how old these people were because when they're definitely in their twenties. It's still kind of way. But like i was like they both have jobs so i was like i assumed it was adult But yeah i. I read a sweet mess which i believe is being adapted Yes it is. Yeah that's that's a. That's a fairly horny book. And i know that there is a sequel. That guy in though. I mean that's perfect is literally the person i was imagining. Because it's i think she she must have been thinking of because she also described his voice and i was like. Yeah it. it's gotta be him forearms you know she phones like all of that day kim. Yeah and i've been reading a lot of south asian romances. Oh yes one of my favorites sub genres of the romance novel is south. Asian adaptations of pride and prejudice. Like specific down will watch other. Flavors will need all of the yeah. There's there's wants to pakistan that was like particularly good. I forget the title because there are so many of them so sorry. But yeah yeah. Those are always fun. So yeah but if you guys are searching for more asian american romance i did compile a couple on our bookshop page so go check that out i. I have not read all of them. I don't know how sexy they are so please proceed with caution. I'm sorry if you like read it. And you're like whoa. This is way too sexy. Because i have not read it so i cannot give you proper trigger warnings but we do have a lot of book recommendations and other book listings on our bookshop affiliate page. So yeah go check out. Well that'll do it. For a discussion of happy endings between kim lamb. Thank you so much to our special guest. Just an han From the good pop culture club for joining us as our hornbook experts. We had quite a discussion. I think i'm gonna have to put some sort of cotton warning on this episode. Just the warmth of all the other mentions of you know penises and such. I feel like we could have gotten more tim. I but considering that it's the first time all of us are doing like a collaborate episode together. It's kind of like how do we go. Let's say spare marvin detail. Let's see with four books after dark or are you adults only podcast egypt. But i'm down down. I guess yeah before we go. We do need to let everyone know what we're reading for the month of july because it is a new month we are halfway through twenty. Twenty one rewrote. What were you reading for. The month of july we are reading an ocean of minutes by theod limb. It is a speculative novel with time traveling so it set in the aftermath of a deadly pandemic and the main character polly. She signs a contract to go. Time travel five years into the future to do labor indentured labour in order to get life saving medication for her boyfriend but she accidentally gets time traveled way than she was supposed to and now she is stranded in america. That is very unfamiliar with no status or money and she is still trying to find her boyfriend in the future. So that is what we're going to be reading. It is very different from happy endings. It is probably not going to be a happy read so feel like making it up to me for mainly read a book this month. My atonement you should be grateful marvin for the no opportunity. Yeah now i know a lot more about twenty six so you know. There's that all right.

Gb while supplies last only kings currently have eight picks in the upcoming two thousand and twenty one nhl entry draft including the eighth overall pick. The draft is always a bit of a mystery with hundreds of players eligible to be taken but this past year has made it even tougher predict. So we've assembled some keen hockey observers from around the hockey world up. Lonski is going to ask them to tell us which players are out there. What kinds of players might wind up in. La what's up kings fans. Welcome back to another episode where we cover the prospects of the future soon to be kings. Hopefully joining me is tony. Ferrari the managing editor in head of scouting at prospect s-. Tony how are you. I'm good. I'm happy to be here. While we're we're very grateful for you to come on and help talk to us about the c. H. l. guys up in canada Looking at this draft. Obviously it's very deep in terms of canadians But the kings eight draft picks Obviously eighth overall two seconds in two thirds so plenty of options for the kings to go after some of these guys that we noted And just a little bit of history on on the kings in the h. L. in the last four drafts. Twelve c. h. L. guys so twelve canadians. That have played up in the canadian. Hockey league's The first guy. I wanna get to tony is dylan gutters on who's projected to be taken right around that number eight slot where the kings lie and before i get into this. He's in the whol. If you could break down a little bit of the difference between the whol the cwm jail in terms of style and play so the the three leagues in canada. Barely different for for what they are is. It's pretty interesting considering. They're all under one umbrella. But you'd kinda ranked the league's with with the l. Being at the top the whol being in the middle and then the jj kind of being stepped down from those two in the big difference is structure. I think with the with the three leagues in the whol. You have a lot of structure. It's very defensive. It's very fortunate. Heavy big western conference hockey like we're used to for so many years right big boy hockey and then ontario. It's a bit more that nhl pro-style game where it's a bit faster it's still about that heaviness to it and everything but then the cwm jay joel's kind of the opposite w Jaw a little softer defense is option a lot of times. It's it's a fast paced game so yes some pretty insane point totals in the kim jae jao but overall there's still through the best developmental leagues in the world. Anytime you're dropping out of there. You're drafting probably pretty good player. Yeah it seems so and we'll get into some of the guys that the kings of drafted in the previous years out of some of the canadian hockey leagues. But as i mentioned dylan gunther. He's a right wing again selected or projected to be right around that eight spot a out of the whol he plays for the edmonton oil kings guy who in the previous season put up a point game and then in the twelve games with the the delayed season with covid. He had two points a game with twelve games to twenty four points Who is dylan gunther in. Do you see the kings. A you know being attracted to him around that number. Eight overall selection. Yeah that's kind of rate the range. I've had him in all year long. Is this eight to twelve range kind of thing and it's because he's such a good smart player that's the name of his game. He just so intelligent he doesn't necessarily have the the high pace that you look for in some of the players. His skill levels insane. He possesses one thing. That i don't think any other player in this draft really hasn't and that's a one time shot this kid. He's shooter. He got twelve twelve goals in twelve games this year. Twelve says well rounded to twenty four points but man. This kid has a good shot in he just so intelligent to get to the spots needs to be on. It's interesting you've got a guy who's six foot one about one hundred eighty in change give or take him whenever you wanna look at one time that you read off his stats but He someone that you know in reading about him in watching videos in researching that seems to be able to play well Offensively like you mentioned but still someone that's trustworthy in the defensive end at a little bit more of a matured rate than maybe his peers. Yeah i think that's just a product of the whol as well as i said they're a bit of a heavier league so they rely on their wingers to come back a little bit more than they would in the other. Two leagues on in canada. And i think he does a pretty good job of that. I don't think he's ever going to be a mark stone level defensive winger but i think he's going to be more than competent defensively and he has the smarts and the anticipation that you just need as a winger. Defensively goes your wing. Let's be honest. Isn't the guy that really breaking up. Plays too often leads high up in the zone. And and that's all anticipation. That's we're doing Thrives with gunther. You know. I think you look at some of the research. That's been done on him in a in a lot of what you do in terms of scouting in projecting him who do you see as a comparable guy a lot of comparisons to nhl players. Would maybe say tyler. Seguin mathew barzal What's your opinion. And where do you see him in terms of a current player in the nhl. I think tyler sagan's a pretty good one. He's the guy that i think can play center. But i think tyler seguin succeeds most weighing. I think that's where he's best in. That's where i think doing there's gonna play at the next level With a guy like monty barzal. He plays with an insane amount. Pays in speed. And don't get there's a little bit more cerebral. Who's he's a little bit more laid back and he'll pick you up part with his brain rather than just getting by with his speed. So it's a little bit more reserved but i definitely think taller seconds. A pretty embarrassing there while at number eight. If anyone gets tyler seguin bill be complaining a well so the next year we're gonna move to. Here's in the queue zachary boldak center six foot. One hundred and seventy five pounds kind of looking at that mid one maybe second round guy What what about him is so agnostic. 'cause he seems to be up and down all over the draft boards. Yeah i think the big thing was bulldozed. You see skill you see the tools you see the potential there but then there's so many times where he's too good passes and then the third passing offensive zone is going to no one or he'll he'll go to break out of the the defensive zone he just isis the puck for no reason in. You're like okay you. You have the skating ability. You have the skill we've seen you make passes that a lot of players can't make at this level so what's happening here like what decision making processes going there and i think that's kind of what holds him back because you do see him make haiku. Play hike you play. And then it's just like he forgets how to play hockey for one pass in. It's what's going on there. I think with him. You're going to need to gonna go all right. Let's watch some video. Let's figure out what exactly you're seeing on the ice in wire making not passing in solve that so i think it's mostly a mental issue with him because the skill in the talent is all their will to give a little bit more context on bullock. He followed up Alexi lafraniere used to being That number two guy now. He followed up in his shoes. Seems like he handled it pretty well but you. You mentioned the the inability to speak insistent essentially is that's something that you see is fixable or is this just the type of guy you gotta get and you know big risk big reward if it pans out. I think there's always a risk with a guy like this where you of question is not necessarily iq but the decision making process on on a consistency basis. So i think it's something that you can fix if you commit like. I said watching video with him in just kind of it after one of those passes and look at them and go. What are you doing there. Man and he'll explain his processing. You go okay. Well this is what you should look at this this payroll been in just video work and studying stuff like that. That's what helps with this stuff. So it's possible but it's not at ever something of guaranteed will the next we're gonna move here is to zachary narrow center. Left-wing out of the jay is well five foot eleven one ninety six definitely a thicker guy for his size seems to be a pure goal scorer What is your take on this guy man. I loved that if he didn't get suspended. Four times in a shortened season. I would love this kid so much. He's that's exactly. He's got that traditional power forward game. He's more than capable of kind of out. Muscling a guy down low win aboard battle. He's got a pretty ridiculous shot his releases great he can score from anywhere in the offensive zone and he's in he's got tidy hands in front of the net as well like he's got that entire like matthew could chuck type package that you want in a player. That's that's going to be on your top line. Second line wing but he. He's crossed line a couple times this year in to his credit. A couple of the suspensions were like going overboard with the fighting and infighting too much in the gel in his final one to end season was a guy kinda chopped his goalie in the throat so he chased him down in attacked him and they got into a fight and of course he's got already got the the limit so he get suspended again if that kind of thing. We're yes. he has four suspensions. But you look at the context. And you're like okay. Well maybe he should've really only had two but still those two incidences are still things you have to worry about. It's interesting you look at the type of player that he could become to the names that come to minor brad marchand or maybe a avoid shack is that someone that he could project to be. Yeah i definitely think he fits right into that category. I think he's going to be a bit of a pass like that. Brad marchand style player. But i think he's a little bit more physical than brad marchand like a voortrekker could chuck is kinda On those lines even though those guys are a little bit bigger. I mean a little bit more context here. He led all draft eligible players in the queue in scoring chances per sixty minutes. so obviously some pros there that we We can see but also the cons as well. Xavier exhibitor center right wing. Also in the queue Q a m j h l six foot one seventy two projected maybe around that late i He let all drafts players. Twenty twenty one and prospects in the queue during in points during this past seat or two seasons ago as a rookie with seventy one in sixty three games. You talked a little bit about how this is a higher scoring league. Are those numbers that are. Maybe inflated a little bit or this is this a legit type of player that can produce a point per game type of guy the thing i said about savior borgo for for now. Two years basically is that he's the ultimate complimentary player in because he's able to plan along with maverick bork who is a dallas stars. Pick last year. He has the advantage of being just so capable of adapting to whatever mavericks. Doing or whatever linemates doing that. He's able to rack up those points. He's gonna produce kind of wherever you put them. As long as you got a guy that can drive the line there. I think he's not a guy that i is going to be the best player on the line but if he's the second best player on the line he's a pretty good second best player on that line and i think he's going to be one of those guys that you look at it. If a coach tries to put him by himself run like a second or third line and have him drive that line. It might not work out but if you get him with. A guy. Like for instance clinton by field in a couple of years. That's scary duo. Because exhibit borgo can play exactly off clinton by field so well and the thing that he does he just plays off whatever player. he's playing with so well. He can be a goal scorer he can be a passer. It doesn't really matter. He kinda fits. Any role is really versatile. That way you know just in the description that you're giving on on onboard go. He seems like a little bit of someone that you could compare it to an like an andre polat. Who just you know really helps out with kucherov what he does. Yeah i think that's that's a perfect example. Guy can just fit in online in do his job and not have to worry about being doug. I will the next guy here. We're gonna move to back to the western hockey league in surpassed sebastien costa in this one to me is extremely intriguing. Because he's a goalie six foot six to ten. No he's looking right in that mid to late first round draft pick a phenomenal stats in both years. But one of the things that you know scouts are saying is a little bit hard to read. He's on one of the best teams so he doesn't get challenged a whole lot What do you make of a guy who six with six to ten at the age of eighteen and really seems to have at all. Man's fashion coast is a really fun. Gold under watch easy so big and so lengthy that he's able to get to either side of the net even if he is a position a little bit I've said for basically the entire season now that he's not quite in that askerov Wall set spencer night tier but he's probably closer to those guys any is to the rest of the guys that have been drafted in the last three years. I think he's a legitimate. First round goaltender. I think if if someone's looking at him around twenty it's a great pick and if he makes it to the second round i mean you're you're laughing because you're getting a first round talent there. I think at the end of the day and with him yet. There is the concern. He played on the best team in the whol. Probably any played in the week is division in the whol and they only play division. Play this year. So if his numbers are a bit lopsided but at the end of the day. You gotta stop the boxing. He was doing it in the when you watch tape. You see how technically skilled is for big goaltender. He still has moments where he gets outside of his body. Every big goaltender dies but he's really good at adapting recovering after that initial mistake. You know you've mentioned that the the stats ruler inflated. He played nineteen games at one. Five seven goals against average at nine forty one save percentage which is absolutely insane. C. comparisons to ben bishop or is there someone else one of the bigger goalies that silence sickly and or could become type of guy. Yeah i think ben bishop of really good example there. He's he's got the length he's got the size. I think the the issue with bishop was the the injury history. That's come up with him over the years and in that's going to be concerned with any big goalie so he's gonna need to stay in shape. He's going to need to work on his body and everything you look at a guy like andrei vasilevskiy. Who does that now. Who is also a pretty big goal tender in you gotta make sure. These goaltenders are taking care of themselves. And i think teams incorporating more fully coaches incorporating more specific trainers in scouts. It's all kind of coming around in. We're starting to get goals. That are able come into the league. A little younger be a little bit more successful right away in actually have a longer career as well. Well we're gonna stay in the western hockey league in another intriguing pickier and logan stanko oven center. Five foot eight one seventy Late i second extremely interesting. He seems to be rising in the rankings. The another guy that you can describe as won't can score from anywhere. What do you make of a guy. That's you know under size but still has the ability to score man. This kid is just so exciting. I i've had him super high in my rings. All your people made funding at the start of the year. 'cause i mean i i'm kind of known as the guy that doesn't mind being being fan of five nine player so yeah when everyone's kind of ranking him around forty fiftieth star of the year. Now like you said he's rising in its. Everyone's just seeing the shots ridiculous. He's generating in driving play at such a ridiculous level at the whol level and then he'd just continued the world under eighteens when you look at some of his advance stats. he's just absolutely dominating. Possession absolutely dominant share. He drives played credibly. Well in the one area that you look go. Where's he going to struggle as the board battles the physicality in all those areas and he does a pretty Job he does a really good job of framing up. He is a strong lower body and he just continues to build that and you decide as the year went on. He was just continuously getting stronger. Winning those battles a little bit more often in teens. I thought he was one of the best players for candidate along the boards of. Maybe a guy like maize mctavish in. It's really impressive to see that small guy win those battles at this level. Because you're like okay now the next when you gotta keep testing them that way because a lot of times you look at the small player and you're like oh well he's not winning bows at this level strong. He'll start winning battles. No that's not really how it works. He's gotta win battles year. I move on when those battling continue moving on. Eventually the the under eighteen played seven games at four goals for sis too for eight points. Everything you read about this guy. Everything in your description says cole caufield to point out. Is that accurate. I don't know if he has quite the ceiling of goal coffee. But i do think the stylistically. They play the same kind of way. The one difference is slogan. Stankovic does play center. He he's capable center and he's pretty good defensively too because he's got a motor. That doesn't stop in. That's really impressive. And there's not many five eight centers in the nhl. You look around you got like brayden point and that's pretty much it and i don't know if he's quite brayden point because that's a special player but i mean if you're gonna be minus Brayden point or a b plus during point. I think you're gonna take that. We're going to go back to the defensive side in hop over to the cwm. Jj zac dean a guy. Who's in that late first or early. Second six photo one seventy six. You know it's interesting. Because i think with covid with so many people that i think we're gonna see up and down the board that are so far off from projections just because of the seasons in the way that they've scouted him. Is this guy that you could see hop up or or someone that could fall. He's going to be another guy exactly book. Where if a team really likes the package. He brings in things they can round him out. I think there's a really good player here. But it's going to be one of those situations where you have to draft and developed this guy and he's not a guy that you're gonna build to rush into the nhl. He's probably need a couple more years in the queue and then probably go to the h. l. for a year to this is going to be a slow burn but he's really smart. He's got pretty good. Skating is quick with his feet. A there's a lot to like about this guy. The problem is sometimes. He just doesn't see shooting lanes sometimes. He doesn't kind of take the shot when he needs to. Or he'll take a shot from thirty feet out and you're like man like you cook. You had fifteen feet in front of you to take that ice so you to do that and so there's kind of little things that you need to work on with him. Nothing major and that's the big thing is you gotta just get him to be more aggressive. I think it's hard to teach aggression sometimes but it's not impossible in any time you get a guy that's going to be confident you're you're gonna drop them high and you're going to get them going. You gotta pump them up in in. This is going to be one of those kids where you have to kind of. Get those tires competent before you can really worry about what he's going to be at the nhl level. I mean you're exactly right in terms of that aggression. It seems like it's almost in players. Dna or isn't and obviously when you need to provide more of the aggression in terms like a guy like jean It's something that is up in the air with. That said i mean he had twenty points in twenty three games as the assistant captain in the cwm. jay z. Comparison that you see you know whether stylistically or someone that you know plays the type of game that he does. I look at him a lot. And i see a guy like peering ball who played on toronto this year. Who's got all the tools in the world. He's got the skating. He's got pretty decent size he can get around the ice He commits defensively in that. You like the effort and stuff but sometimes you're just like not do something in. He has the package. And it's one of these things. I i don't like saying this a whole lot. But there's there's a saying where you you have a good hockey player in a bad hockey players body or a bad hockey player and a good on your players body in. I think there's some mix of that with zag dean where you have a really good hockey players body you got. He's got the skill. He's got the skating in on stuff. You just gotta get that actual athlete animal out of him a little bit to interesting. Haven't heard that before. But it's i mean it's picture perfect when you mentioned it that way. The last non. Oh l. guy. we're going to go with his rider. Core zach centerman six footer. One seventy four somewhere in that second round playing the whol For moose jaw assistant captain for the past two years younger brother of cadence. Second rounder Who went to vegas last year and Has had you know some time up In the nhl and or the h. l. seems to be totally opposite of his brother. Much more aggressive much more creative that be correct. Yeah extremely created in loves to just make passes that no one else would even think of this guy's got a ton of creativity in game like. There's been a few times where i've seen on the raw. She's in transition. any banks. The puck off the boards and tries to spin around player and he he makes the play. And and that's not gonna work the nhl level he's going to have to rein some of the creativity in the wild stuff like that in. But when you see stuff like that you're like okay like there. There's something here like there's a town acknowledged the next level thinking exactly right and in the nhl level. You're in need creativity and stuff and like i said you're gonna have to rain some of the flashy stuff in but you need to be able to make those those decisions at a quick second and he does that The one thing that. I really looked for this year with him was to improve his skating and he he really got faster. He got quicker and in his skating. Stride still needs a little work to clean up. But you're not worried but as mobility anymore. And i think that's the big thing and his shot is is is good but he never shoots. That's that's a big problem with him. And you want to shoot more but the playmaking is there and i think you'll love the kid playmaker. Yeah you talk about how he doesn't shoot in the last two years he's played Sixty two games on the twenty nineteen season had eighteen goals forty nine assists and then this past year in seventeen games three goals and thirteen assists so right on point with that one of the drawbacks Other than the lack of shooting is seems to be his his strength but is it something that he can overcome and On top of that seems very you know brayden point s could be someone that you could compare them to stylistically. Yeah stylistically. i could see that definitely. I think brayden point as to the nature level. He's become more of a shooter. And i think that's something that can do because like i said he's got a good shot he just doesn't shoot very often so it kind of draws back from the the actual danger right. So he's one of those guys that i think is going to develop at the angel level at eastern. He's not super strong. But that's something that you can work on. I mean the the king's just drafted by field. Now is the biggest drawback on him. And i mean. I don't think anyone's complaining Ville this year. We've seen him get stronger over the last year. So i don't think necessarily going to be able to pack muscle the way by fielded. But i think he's going to be able to get to the nhl level strength in nba perfectly. Fine in that regard we moved to the. Oh l. a. and. I wanted to keep this separate because it's obviously a a mess to say the least. Oh l. did not have a season It happened benefit. Guys like by field in kelly of who had the opportunity to play in the h. l. and grow and develop against grown men. But you look back to to the kings history and who they've drafted out of the oh l. I mentioned by field. Kelly of the lardy. Akil thomas eight dudas kill clegg even go back to the times with the cups in twelve and fourteen doughty brown to fully pearson clifford. Kings have a great history of taking players that have been very impactful in the. oh l. We moved to some of these players We mentioned that. Oh l. did not have a season so a lot of these guys either did play and or went to slovakia slovenia switzerland eccentric cetera. And we'll get some of those guys. The first one is brand. Kark right handed defenseman six to one. Eighty five consensus top ten pick Again wasn't the oh l. Played for bury colts to naveh season. Went to slovakia. Is the brother of graham clark. Who's a third round. Pick out of the devils. What has this defense in the top ten. I think he's just so aggressive. He's so smart with the pockets. Just such a good Court like the term quarterback has thrown around a lot. And i think it's kind of given to whoever kind of the point man on the power play or anything but the the way brand car kind of commands. The ice is really special for a defenseman. I it's it's something that you see from a guy like drew doughty in it. It's a it's a trait that you can't really teach. And that's what makes clark special The biggest drawback in his game is the fact that his his skating. Stride looks like me on. Rollerblades is kind of wonky as little knock-kneed doesn't look all that pretty but he's got some of the best four way mobility of any defenseman in the draft Continue to commit to that because his ability to change direction quickly and stuff like yes with improved technique. That will get even better. So if it's okay now why. Why worry if it gets better. You're not complaining. But the way he's able to command the game ways command the ice the thing. I really enjoyed about him. I talked to him earlier this year when he was in slovakia and i asked him. How are you adjusting your game to these guys he goes. I didn't. I made them adjust to my game because the way they're playing they want or gaza. Yeah exactly love that confidence. In indicated that seventeen eighteen. He's coming back with four guys in the defensive zone. I'm used to push that puck up by. I'm used to skate up to glue on myself. And then making a pass through the neutral zone. Those guys can't be in the defensive zone. Get going i'm not gonna turn the puck over in. I was like blown away by how confident he was talking about this with men. It's that kind of attitude and that kind of mentality really makes us good special. I think reading about him. I found one of the coats stuck with me. Because i thought a i've never heard this quote because it so rarely used but someone in describing a clark said if there's an opportunity to join in the rush. He does it if there isn't he creates joins anyway type of guy that this guy is yet in. That's just that he smart enough to identify when it's impossible to do it but if it's not impossible he's gonna make that chance worth it going to get up there and he's going to be that fourth attacker like i've referred to him in a lot of my writing analysts as a rover because he he is a good defenseman in he plays defense when he's back there but he really does just he's all over the ice he's kind of everywhere like i said the having that mindset of being that aggressive. It's really intriguing in in today's nhl. It's just it's money. I think in comparing him in your description in all the scouting reports he kind of falls into that erik. Carlson dougie hamilton category. Would you agree that. Yeah i've referred to a melodic as morgan riley. Because he's just so just lap sometimes defensively but it doesn't matter because when he's back there he strong enough to make the play. He's smart enough to make the play. It's just sometimes. He's not back there because he was just playing left wing and you didn't realize it and that's you take it with these guys because there are so talented and so special offensively in transition. So he's going to be one of those guys at once in a while. He might frustrate you but he's as a lot of special place it does. He's he he seems to be almost like the jamie drives still this draft. Is that a fair. Yeah yeah i going into the draft. This year i was like man. Brian clark is jamie drysdale of super aggressive in. I think that's the fun. Part of o'brien clark's game is he. Just he wants to score and he wants to be part of the russian in megan that happen. We're gonna move to another guy In the show friends francisco. Pinelli six footer. Six foot one center hundred and eighty five pounds was with kitchener the no season so goes to slovenia a guy that seems to be like a jack of all trades master of none type of player yet. I think that's fair with him. He's he's entailed intelligent is is they come in these one of the smartest players in this draft. I think the big issue with him is. He doesn't play with a ton of pace in today's game. Everyone's planning with pace. It takes a really special player. Do not have to really ramp up to the speed of the nhl. So you're get a little bit concerned with that. But the way he's able to make passes his shots pretty ridiculous. He's able to pinpoint in any direction in goalie anywhere in. It's not necessarily an overpowering. Shot is something like i said where it's accurate and he just picks his spots well as a playmaker. He's able to make just about any pass. He's got really soft. Touchy finds folk. Funnels the pucks to the front of that. You really value that. In today's game you want to get to the dangers areas score from the front of the net. And that's where he he sends the puck. You worry a little bit of a defensive game because that pace sometimes he doesn't really love getting back but he's such a smart offensive player. I think he probably ends up on the wing at the nhl level but he certainly capable of being a a center he wants to just kinda push himself a little bit mortgage gained a little bit in his analysis and projections within the draft boards seemingly could be anywhere between the first and second round. Where do you see him going. I seen going on in the twenty to thirty range. I think he's going to go in the first round the talents there in the intelligence is there. It's just again. It's one of those guys where you're like. Is he going to be able to kinda slow the game down the nhl level and maybe it takes a year in the nhl to kind of get used to things in ramp up his pace there. But i think he's going to be really skilled player at the nhl Definitely worth in the first round especially late in comparisons. I think in reading about the about pinelli to the people that stuck out where maybe stylistically like a rhino riley or offensively on the impacts may be joe pavelski. Djokovic's are really good one. The joe joe's never been burner. We've never really seen burn around. He does play slow. You're right yeah exactly so in in. That's kind of what you're getting with pinelli as well in the djokovic's good passer. He's a good shooter. He kind of does it all. And i think fit yet. I think pinelli fits that kind of role in it. I mean if you're getting jove elsie. Late in the first round. I think anyone's complaining. It'd be an upgrade from his What i believe is seventh round. Pick when he was driving. So what a steel Next guy here mason Mctavish center someone that they project could be a winger but six two seven right in that mid first round Wasn peter's borough then went to switzerland for a break when they didn't have A guy that seems to be a point per game player Not only in switzerland but also in the hdl pure goal score type. I think last year. I would have said yes. He's really rounded game this year. I think he's one of the players. I was really low on coming into the season. And he's proven me wrong every every turn. It's been great to see. I love being proven wrong. It's it's my favorite thing about the process. Because i would much rather have player. Prove me wrong and be really good when i tell them they're not going to be good in. May's temperatures done that all year long My big concern was escaping. He's completely improve that. Become a powerful skater. Use that big frame to generate power and in that something he wasn't doing last year. I think one of the other things that i was kinda worried about was his playmaking. He he really was that pure goal scorer he'd walk into the offensive zone. Find the puck in just rip it. And he has that wicked shot so he's going to be a really good player regardless seeing him develop that playmaking especially the cycle. He's maybe the best player in the entire draft off the cycle and it's really impressive to see him kind of work at a professional in. You saw that. A lot of the world under eighteen were anytime the puck would going to the corner. It's made me thomas just coming out with it. And that's that's his game. I think he's going to be a really smart physical player. There's a lot to like about this guy eventually. The world juniors at the eighteen level seven games five goals six assists for eleven points Everything in reading about him in your description to me. I see jeff carter. Is that someone that you see as well. Yeah i think jeff card is a really interesting comparison. Like that's a guy that can do a little bit of everything in needs to rely on that shoddy has it and mazel metastases. Kinda the same thing. It's it's going to be really interesting to see his development because seeing the growth. He's had this year. I'm curious to see how much longer that continued to kind of exponential path. He's been on is going to go the last guy here that i wanna talk to you about Brennan osman left-wing. Six foot one. One seventy five someone projected to be in that lace late first rounder Played for the flint firebirds in the shell in twenty nineteen twenty. twenty Went to switzerland this past year with the shutdown seems to be one of the top goal scorers in the draft. One of the best shots as well is he. Kinda all offense in risk reward or as someone who has the high level offense that can pan out in every other area become a well rounded the asset for a team. I think that's the big thing about this year with him as he came up with shane. Right in in in brent clarke from the flyers went to the jail last year and those to have a lot of success and he had some decent success. He didn't have a bad season but there was a little bit more expected of him but he was playing a kind of a lower lower role in the lineup and everything so when he went over to switzerland this year is really interesting to see him adds so much physicality to his game because that was never an elementary had us adding it to the defense side as well in in. That was where you really notice things. Sometimes you go out of his way especially early on to kind of throw a hit just to throw a hit because he knew playing against men and he had to do that but he really rounded out his game especially defensively. I think he's very underrated. Defensively is brain. This year was just incredible to watch c. That commitment to the defensive side of the puck where he never really hide that before in as for the offensive tools. Like you said he's got a wicked released. He's got a really good rishaad and he's got a little bit. Were playmaking them. People give him credit for because last year he had to rely on that without being able to be that star goalscorer. So it's really interesting. Seem kind of rounded his game. I don't know exactly where he's gonna end up seeing the physicality added you're seeing. He's able to kind of do a little bit of everything and now wears gonna specialize. You mentioned you know the stats and what they can mean in the different leagues for the oh l. Obviously you talked about how it's a little bit more. Nhl lake you go back to his rookie season at the twenty nineteen twenty season with flint. Fifty five games. Seventeen goals sixteen assists for thirty three points. Among the guys we've talked about. It's a little bit lower than some of the guys but is that telling or is that just the situation he was in. I think it was just the fact that flint was really good last year whereas other teams like the weren't as good right. You look a guy on sarnia like thai avoid. And he's going to be able to rack up points because there was no one else on that team really. He was on a really good team. Play on the fourth line primarily and he did earn his way up a little bit as the year went on in when injuries happened but yeah he was definitely just kind of victim of being on a really good team under the radar late bloomer type i would assume yeah i think he's a guy that people are sleeping on a little bit like i'm starting to see him get pushed the second round more and more and i'm like okay. Let it happen. But it's gonna gonna someone's gotta steal you The last thing you hear that i wanted to bring up is something we do with a everyone we talked about the prospects with Alaska to put your your la kings general manager hat on You know given the eighth overall selection in the few seconds in two thirds. A lot of these guys that we've talked about are going to be around that board. If you're the kings who someone that you have your eye on that you think would fit well into what the kings having go. Have the kings going on and the prospects that the kings have in their organization already. While i'll give you one guy that there that we talked about today that's amazing tavern. She's just he'd fit. So well with the kings. I think he'd fill that physicality role he. He's it really versed. All you can play centre or wing so wherever kind of everyone else develops. He can fit in wherever he needs to fit in. And i think he's got the two hundred foot game now this year. He's improved his skating a lot. And that's a really big thing and then as for someone that we didn't talk about today i'm going to go with fabulous l. Who's a swedish winger. He's got pays. Maybe my favorite player to watch in this draft. He's just so incredibly skilled in serie and he so attack oriented. When i talked to him earlier this year he was just so excited about the forechecking. In seeing how excited he was as a guy who's only five eleven in you watch them at the essay level and he's just a buzzsaw he's everywhere he's going all over the place he's never lacking forever you. He's a little small for that league in in the nhl. He didn't score all that much so he could get dropped down a little bit more. But i think he's definitely someone to consider at the tail end of the top gun. Tony for our eight again. The manager knitter a managing editor and head of scouting at dober- prospects I greatly appreciate you taking the time to to break down the h. l. for those of you the listeners that want to learn a little bit more about what you do a working they find. You can follow me on twitter at tony. Ferrari someone took tony ferraris. Lloyd's data that of the front of it. And yeah. exactly right it makes me makes me feel important within all my works over prospects rankings rankings. Coming out soon that'll be my final end of the year rankings. Inda that's kind of where my work caps off. The most of the year is that for some deep dies. More podcast appearances awesome. Tony will thanks again. Thanks a lot.

And he's also the founder of jump magazine which was an important magazine in Philly that covered the at local philly music scene and so George joins us to talk about his transition from Philly to Tokyo. Japan's dealing with the crisis The Olympics and life in general in Tokyo. And what's different than Phillies? A pretty interesting interview and it's cool talking to someone on the other side of the world. Sounds pretty good. And we hope you'll check it out and spread word stay safe. Wash your hands. The Santa Fill the Yellow Ladies and gentlemen welcome to Philly Blunt. My Name's Carnegie Times. I'm Ref- Greg. We've got a great guest tonight. Very excited to have him on We have a George Miller. Who's coming at US live from Tokyo Japan? Where some big news just came out in the last twenty four hours George is originally originally from Wilmington. Right up in Delaware. Yeah but you know but you yes raise. Your from. Women's does so but you've been over Japan for couple of years now and now it has to be fairly surreal to not just be experiencing this international You know craziness that were living through but experiencing it halfway across the world. I'm not sure what you're talking about. We don't actually have a pandemic here. Now everything's cool right right right and everything is lovely beautiful sunshine outside the trees to bloom in everybody's outside drinking. It's a lovely. It's a lovely spring day in Tokyo okay. Well they're not. I thought that now that they announced the Olympics aren't coming that people were gonNA quit pretending like it wasn't happening they haven't actually. I don't think it's officially yet. I just think I think Dick. Tom went out there and was just kinda setting the tone for what's going to happen by the Labor Dick's. Yeah what's his name. The panel Gig Handle B. O. U. N. B. Like pounded Dick Pound. So still it was there. Was there a a major reaction to that story over there? That you noticed. I mean you can't really go as much so I don't know if you have notes not a serious band Everybody's outside here Tokyo. We went out on lockdown at all like I read about what's adds an employee really sounds very shit joke you we were out over the weekend and there are people everywhere so it past you guys like. I'm not I'm confused like didn't did you guys you guys nipped in the bud and kept him. Moving a big. We had the Olympic wave real big while they were still talking off the Olympics. They kind of kept I. Don't I have no idea to tell you the truth but I mean I think as long as the reality of the Olympics on the Tokyo was still in the air they just kept getting the we haven't had an increase in confirmed cases. We haven't had a massive increase in deaths. Things are stable. It's crazy actually really really great newsmen. Yeah we shut down like Japan shutdowns pretty much on in schools. Shut down so they did like Chemo. Basho tournament they did that in They did that end without people and so they didn't Empty Stadium and so the big events in schools shut down in March twenty eighth to rest in the country is just Britain riding the trains and hanging arc and growing up. Did you think they're trying to pretend like it's You know that they're trying to pretend like things are normal because they want the Olympics to happen. Or do you think that you guys are just inexplicably lucky. And it's somehow basketball. You can't hide this stuff and you know people are dying. You can't hide it so native monkey. Journalists runs over the weekend. We're talking nation again research on. Are they hiding the Ronan deaths in new ammonia Or Flu Death Sore Respiratory Yet. The numbers aren't increasing anyway. So no idea exactly fucking miracle. How do you feel about that? Do you feel like the trust that was really going to do. You think that there's some sort of cover up now man me and my social worker. Yeah yes I think it's time bomb but that's just me based on nothing actually based on what I read in you know in Phillies in Philly stuff. I'm a little nervous. Yes but we're still how you were still going out. But they're not There's here go to bars or restaurants or stores or anything like that. People still go to the park. I was out. Was it Friday night? I went for Ron and there was still lots of people down by Cheney car so people are still Now people are still going out and and and being closed but just because everything shutdown. That's definitely helping to social distancing But I don't think people are taking it as seriously as they probably should especially considering how close we are New York which is getting slammed right. Well my wife and I Like last weekend we decided. We'll get on bikes. We'll go for ride. It's Cherry blossom season. We'll go look at the crease and everything we go out to the park. And there's like a thousand people in this tiny little part in their everywhere and so we're like all right. You know you people thinking locked up for a week. Maybe they want to get out you go to another part Champ Akron People. We go another part. There's people playing basketball outside plan like you know they're playing tennis outside. It is everyday normal On the trains there are. I mean like the trains on a on a on a on a normal Dan Tokyo over we get on the train. Gigi getting cuffed by like five people and if you just like yeah that's my whole body is like especially with really like. I don't know how long people can you know. Play this stay in the house thing man. 'cause it's like people are losing fucking mind. It's only been like a really a week. You know what I mean like. I don't know how this this whole thing. Just this is uncharted territory. Right like you walk past asking you gotta all the liquor stores are all the windows is. She'll go down like another week or so. You're going to be trying to get liquor anyway. Why have a friend who owns a bar? I'm not I'M NOT GONNA you know. Dome under the bus. But he's saying like I can't stay closed for another week like I. I'll give them two weeks. And then I I'm reopening you know like I don't know you know. Hopefully that I think people are counting on. You know not getting rent called in or not getting You Know Pe- you know people are accounting on something going down because there's no way if they make you pay one hundred percent of your rent then every bar restaurant accept the really you know. Well he'll guys going down April first so I have to think. In the next week it was going to be some drastic measures taken so that we don't lose every bar and restaurant city except for the tops fifty You know it's it's it's there's going to have to be some pretty drastic things done because otherwise how to you. What's the point? Why are you paying rent revenue? I know these guys were trying to do the takeout thing. But that's just stopgap right. George have you been in contact with family and friends? Obviously our how you doing you know that everybody seems pretty. Good at my mom My mother's Japanese so I moved here. I took this job. I applied for the job because I got family in Japan right. Well is still in Delaware and so you know she seems to be doing good on any on on on a regular day. She's got like suit stockpiled for like six months. This is a normal day for her doing anything she didn't she didn't go anywhere. So you're big vegetables vegetable. It's just normal life. My father's in Florida so is crazy down there. That's your Ob. The young people work out people at the beach. The beach in he lives in floor Myers and they locked down the beach. That so people can't even go on the beach down there while here in Tokyo man people are people are on the beaches there in the parks the. Climb Mountains. You know. Y'All should come over here. Yeah Yeah if if this was just somehow the whole thing bypass bypass year there. Yeah why not? That's one thing I've been wondering like if you know if 'cause looks like China's kind of gotten past it looks like South Korea's on its way I I'm serious like is Ernie Awesome -bility of there being sort of migration Over that way because if people can't work here for six months but they could go over you know they could go to China South Korea or something like that and work. I wonder if people would actually consider doing nat that. There's no explanation for. Why depend doesn't have crazy numbers like every deal? I mean the people keep telling me like Oh Japanese people the Culture here. Everybody so much more cleaner like they watch. They were rocking the mass. Like way before all right you. People wear masks. And they don't want to talk to. Is there a lawyer confusion as the Olympic nervion postponing do people get that? There's other people coming over there. Probably other athletes bringin that shit right people around the world are raising a lot of stink people in Tokyo or like okay. We're going back to business next week. We're going to open next week. Universities are GONNA open up in April right. We won't open up our summer session at the end of April wine's or getting back to life as normal. That's I don't know man like that. Sounds fucking amazing right now. That's a lot of people ability. Just Jason Shit at everything you. So what is the temple? Tokyo like is it. Is it built in the middle of the hood like are weird? We used to be in a fancy name insane. Yeah Y- we like where the embassies consulates are but we move across town and so now it's pretty funny man because right now across the street from our campus. It's like the projects you see. The extent Temple Temple Temple DEPUTIES PROJECTS. And so it's like it's like really I knew. Yeah and you know. They treat people well on the projects year. So it's crazy where we now. It's like it's like a real neighborhood in so it's great like right around the corner from us. They have distinct on the show. Ten Guy which is the shopping districts was bars and restaurants. All these little places you can buy stuff. It's great neighborhood now instead of where we were with the the consulates and embassies works and so everything's cheaper and law and you can get a you can get any Japanese sake For like a dollar a dollar fifty and you know you can get for. Bucket to of that essential students level is so you loving you loving the choice. You made the move out there You know it was good because you know didn't Philly for twenty five years more coming and my job has asked Liz on between the Tokyo campus and main campus and so they were sending me back and forth the philly every three months. I was supposed to be that right now. Actually metric got cancelled and so last year I spent almost monthly. I don't forget you watch you see students in Tokyo that in Philly we got we have an interesting mix to students so forty percent of our students are Japanese and so a lot of the kids are. I'm half Japanese so a lot of a lot about being mixed backgrounds And so the kind of cross Golkar's we have a lot of Japanese students or just fascinated by western culture and we have forty percent of our students Americans which includes a lot of Of Own and so we get these kids who had like a fascination with Japan so they just want be here and then because Japan's international place we usually pick up like fifteen twenty percent of our students who come from around the world campus radioman man. You'll get like twenty five different languages gently you'll see punches. The kids talk in Swedish and Japanese and French faculty same thing. It's an interesting place so dumb over here. I A Japanese like. How do you communicate details? There might hear South Philly Tack Right Right. That's it yeah all of us so we we got one guy who went to You went to the Newman right. So He's here he's been here for like fifteen years or so he sounds like he's from Iowa for the most part had brought the guy from From South Philly for main campus. Come teach for US last semester. Also McGrady guy hanging out and all of a sudden they just like all sorts of south walls and I was like brothers. She's down there. Brooke everybody in common it was you know yes. My cousin iris-out Philly's Italian versus long linguists family members. Complain about that Salvator notice. You have a background now too. So you guys you guys apply. I look super unprofessional raining. I agreed screen. They'RE GONNA use. Yeah I'm I'M GONNA galleon reached out in front of the skyline. I mean you're just in the kitchen. Mona South Street British Dylan. So so George. Was there big? Was there wasn't much. It was their big culture shock. When you know you've been there pretty regularly two years But still being somewhere regularly and actually moving there from a place like Philly I have to think is somewhat of a culture shock I So when when I was coming to Japan my my family's way down south in the countryside and so they live on the side of a Mountain Hills. Intriguing beautiful when everything though. I never spent much time in Tokyo. Tokyo is a massive city with like you know depending on how you calculated like thirty thirty five thirty eight million people and so it's just insane. There's just people everywhere so when I would walk at night old apartment Kabul them we would walk outside and literally you would have waves of people just coming right at you getting off the train and like you couldn't get through and so but Japan itself is a pretty pretty amazing place. People Nice Man. I couldn't believe when I went there like Ed like ten. Eleven o'clock at night we were in Sinjuku with a business district the amount of people on the street waiting for the Red Light. And no one. No one crosses on red light even. Markham for like three minutes. Everyone just waits and then man rush of like hundreds of people at like eleven o'clock at night last chain comes at eleven thirty twelve o'clock And they'll be thousands of people on the platform. Most of the people like filling their suits and everything faces already because they've been crumpled up in the corner of against the policy we will. We were on the train one time and we saw this guy like midnight. Whatever he's just crumpled up on the floor walk reside at Buffalo here Luke side somebody over and they put it on top of all right shit that would be gone in Philly. That's the thing is like the culture is a big on. You know respect and honor and I mean this is just from what I what I assume I know. But that's a big thing over there. It's kind of being like a respectable human being right now. That's a crazy concept. Yeah man I mean the The whole idea of Japan is that society is greater than the individual. That's what comes first. That may new. That's why we're we're fairly safe right now. Maybe people actually gave Shit and they start. You know little kids and teenagers and younger folks started avoiding people and so we didn't get it around as much had no idea that the quality of several of in Tokyo over here is unbelievable. Random like they had a they have like you could buy white business shirts. Because that's the deficit. Eleven we had business. They send you go crazy so George. What's The music scene like that over there? I mean it's such a gigantic place. There's literally everything that the most thing for me is that they do shows it started seven o'clock and are over at nine o'clock. I'll definitely moving over them at that age. All that off going on no none of that going on you know one thirty. Yeah Oh that's wild. So you're big. Are there any like do you go out and listen to music or you find? Listen to bands that. Are you know better? The hit the hit bands and Japan or more underground type stuff for what I mean. We we wrote around. We do a little bit of this net The music scene in Tokyo so spread out and I mean shows are actually usually expensive in so even if you go. They call lighthouse this year. Even if you go to a lot of small lighthouse that whole like thirty or forty people still like twenty five while we don't go out as much like won't leave and go and see all the shows for free And so that's kind of what I liked it. It's expensive and then like when they get big acts coming through walls it'll be like a hundred bucks for a ticket yet. So yeah it's all got too much you go down so I wanted to ask you. Is there any desire to for a lot of people that don't know you founded in the editor of jump Philly which was an incredibly awesome a magazine that focused solely on the local music scene in Philadelphia? Now a lot of people that were able to get You know great looks from being in that magazine One I wanted to task you. What made you start that How we able to stain it as long as you did. Is there any chance of it coming back in magazine form from Tokyo or eventually back? Golden State's that's loaded questions will take your time. So I was teaching temple and took a bunch of students to London For Summer Program and we went over there and I don't like to just do theoretical classes and so we went over. We studied London from music perspective. And so we traveled all around London six weeks and music's interview. We'll put together Over there and then it came back with the magazine out showing some friends in Philly musicians and artists created people. Now this is great but I don't. I don't know London at all something like this. And so me and all of course baseball with a bunch of people they offer. It was like a Saturday pickup. Baseball Game co-head mostly drinking all day barbecue on music. So I got allow those people involved. They were designers and artists and writers. Saga Furs so just a bunch of US got together and put the magazine together and we didn't know we were going to be doing one magazine. And then stop in or what in the mid one in reaching out to us and they were like Yeah how do I get the magazine to advertise And so it was a slow random and then we just kept it going. How many issues end up making altogether I did. I did twenty seven and then another five without me for about another year afterward. Okay who took you? Pass it on a Somali. Yeah a friend of mine. Runs a grid mckean overhead used around magnet and a few other magazines So he picked it up. He's head with a good business sense so he picked it up. How can how can how can a weird time to start a magazine right? Like how can how can you visited? Seems Kinda Gutsy? But his people still read them. Yes of the magazines gone right here. I know that but I'm saying when you started it which was what ten fifteen years ago. Yeah like even then was a pretty crazy time to say you know what we're going to start a magazine. Oh Yeah Yeah which I love the Internet and everything and I'm on the Internet constantly like I'm checking my email looking through facebook. Show on talk me you guys but I think that there's value in having a product and so like the magazine it wasn't timely like like we did respect in summer twenty thirteen. And it's not like you know reef was the biggest story back then. Reeve was just a good story to tell and so but we did a great kind of story and like you should have been on covers magazine for years in Philly so I I think what we were doing wasn't like news. It was it was kind of like it was a time capsule in it was like look at the amazing Shit. That's happening at this point. And so it's not like you read it in throw it away to me like you read it. You keep it on your coffee table. Your friends come over. What in your bathroom case you run out of toilet paper but you keep it around and so I think there's greater value to it which was always my arguments so I kept issues around for a long time. I still have. I still have the issues. What I what was. How did you get it in? Because it would be like the most random like bars restaurants. How did you get people to carry it so to speak? I had had a nine ninety nine Toyota. Celaya and me and my dog would drive around the city. Magazines could stomach pain in my ass. It was so good at all. It's really missed here. There's nothing Nothing like it into key online to try and find a local bands. But they just can't do. They don't do the same deathly you guys did. Such a good magazine. I mean they were great guys. A lot of a lot of the jumped crew also worked at at the key and so we were all good friends actually You know we all used to do stuff together week. Show with do shows together we would Ryan. We used to have a music writer. Parties at Ferguson stuff So all the little music writer crew we all we already if all filtered out all over the country. So that's what one question I had for you was you know you've been out there a couple of years. Now what is it is there what do you? What do you miss the most about Philly right now? I would kill for Hoagie. Where's your Go-to I lived in north liberties for the best seventeen years before moving to Tokyo two years ago. So I got my guy on draw avenue. Second Android Georgia's Walter's the he. He knew that you knew the my name is George and like I'm Kinda beginning say ethnic so he thought I was free to. Yes so he used to cut me a break. Every time I go ahead and you never you never let them you. Never let them all. You just went day words. Yes crying like you grew trades me. My friends must be managed to me man so whatever. I'll take anything this guy was going to free shows. Neaten HALF-OFF HOAGIES. I don't know how you have is good you so what did you. What is your wife? Say when you know said Baby I'm I'm I want to move to Tokyo Was she on board right or did it take some convincing? Nominee she's She was adventurous though. She's from she's from just outside of Philly. Never been to Asia. Japan young Japanese known anybody over here but she was a good sport about it though. Got A job here now. She's working home. She's probably downstairs listening to me right now. Shaving a head how long. How long are you planning on being out there? I duNno I dunno wins ones that what the Congress in Robeson a couple of weeks. We're good. I'm very good at science. I I know science like nobody knows. Science Tupi is not having a stable genius controlling it ever. We have the civil geniuses puppet though so you know who statistics burn best friends over here man. I'm so have you looked are you? Have you gotten a new dog? I know mookie was like you had a dog that fifteen museum. Seventeen on wall. Have you thought about new pack? Got a fish fish. Yeah Man I can't go through. That again broke my heart. Yeah he was like visa so you know he used to go to shows and everything. Yeah a little celebrity on his own you know. A he was a he was a regular really. Would go to Hugo parts for John with me. You make up deliveries with me with the magazine. Yeah yeah he's like whenever? I spoke at colleges and stuff. I got permission to bring him so he went to. You'll know Arcadia Temple. Saint Joe's I've seen some shots of you teaching in Him Mike. Sitting right right by side. It's pretty cool. Yeah Man Yeah like a shore man. I'm gonNA enjoy with dog. Yeah Yeah for sure question about sports over there. I know you're a baseball guide. You do you go to any of the baseball games over there. I tried to try out for the Yokohama Bay Stars last year. I got shot down. They wouldn't even let you try. Not Now man so in Japan one of the things they do is when they have Japanese stars. Go OVER TO AMERICA GO TO AMERICA. Play the careers and everything And since they don't do like a farewell to Japan they'll come back at the end of the season when they do open tryouts and they'll do like a day or two and then all the crowd will be there and you like a big farewell thing so I reached out to the coach from the Bay Stars in Ashton. Fight do it. He was into it deep with the PR people in the yard. People like as bad as allied without a man. I'm a journalist. I'll write about it. It'll be like this big story talking about cultural differences and it'll get people outside of Japan interested Go to Hama near like now. That sounds silly. You're too old for that. Keeping it honest but should you know what's the same Mike at the game? How's it different from from heroin to a phillies game So the divide the stadium and so one side of the stadium for the fans of the home team and the other half will be the fans of the visiting team and so when the home team is batting. All the fans are going crazy. They're waving flags and banging and the cheerleaders and all this stuff out there. The other team comes up. That's I go quiet. And then the other side goes crazy interesting. So there's they keep they keep the riffraff to a minimum by keeping them separated. Yeah so no fighting. You're wearing the wrong color. They'll be like I'm sorry you're on the blue side. You need to be on the red side over there are there. Are they usually a lot of visiting teams fans there so we went to the American all stars playing against the Japanese all stars last year on so my wife and I went and so played in the Tokyo? Dome will took your giants and so when the Japanese side was batting. All the fans are going crazy. They're waving and then when the American their batting was like me and my wife. Who Was it like you could hear? Us SCREAMING TO THE ENTIRE VENUE. Because that's awesome so as a journalist. What are your thoughts on the current narrative of you know kind of a war on actual real news and journalism Is something that you feel inside kind of dying down. A little bit could be more people realize how much bullshit has been spewed. It's something that we can't really recover from. 'cause there's a lot of people that. I know smart people intelligent people that have kind of fallen for this this trapped in idea that you know they don't believe anything anymore and I think that's very dangerous and scary. I think I think it's really dangerous scary. I mean I think the reality is that we don't have like regardless of what side you're on your left or right you know you take what the President says with a grain of salt. Even people believe him believe in Him. They don't they don't listen everything that he says people on the other side completely disagree with them. And so we don't have trusted source in the government that I think the president then social media has got underway erodes the trust in journalism and so people don't have a trust in journalism anymore. Everybody thinks CNN Yorktown Washington Post A. E. News Dot Com. Everybody thinks that everything is still partisan anymore that we don't trust anyone. We don't have a trusted information. How do we actually function as a society where Yeah? I don't know I'm at a loss so I'm actually studying I think the I think one of the things that can happen is that I think universities can be leaders in communities and so I you know it's Kinda tough thing if you look at. What happened in Philly with Temple Pelvic Asian in West Philly? It's not A it's not A. It's not great what they did but they had power to do stuff and so if universities were able to harness the buildings in the building people on all of the grand people. Aren't there in harness for good. You could actually put hand you control back in the hands of more people rather than relying upon government or guidance. And everything's so. I'm hoping that the education until fill the gaps. Where you know. Journalism has been completely undermined. And we've got a political system that's just Corrupt in full seasons. Yeah but I feel like that. They've two things go hand in hand though that people also don't like or trust people who are educated by their the old liberals anybody that's smartest is elite and they don't get it so you know. I don't know you know I don't know if universities being garbage the truth are going to be any more trusted than you know. News organizations right. I'm hoping that in a burning world when colleges free you actually you actually opened up the meritocracy and then it's actually if if if college is based upon you and your values in your abilities to do college in college isn't worth it's not about who can pay for college it's more about. Everybody should get college then. I think it's a I think we have what we have the ability to create a more democratic space. That's what you think. Do you think that's a possibility? You think that's a real thing that could happen. Or is that sky when I think colleges have to change you know I think this will? We're going through right now. In college is going online and everybody teaching. I think the online education works in some instances for the most people all in education squats. If you if you are like a young person's pay for college right now. You're pretty pissed off at what you're having to go through and so. I think that between the cost of college being so high in this experience which is probably GonNa continue for the summer in. Maybe even the fall. I think we're GONNA see a drop-off in students and so unless we actually create a system that doesn't make college more affordable. I don't I I think colleges will really suffer and so I think the federal government is going to have to take action to make college more affordable and once. They Start Making College more Florida. That's GONNA give information in access to informations to more people. In if you give access to to more democratic base hoping that everything will spiral upwards. I think I mean I come from journalism which is all about providing information people were were were. The intention is to educate people and so now directly in education. I do journalism on the side. Everything done has always been around it. Asian need to give people and then they'll go up from there. I'll have you adapted to the you know the online teaching thing For the moment is it should be see. Is there a big difference in connections? You're making beautiful like it's just Kinda you're talking to a screen and you don't really know what's going on. I spend all my life on the eighth meeting pat on Zim that it's only to do there. I know bids. Sorry you're days full full Zunes but I think it's I think it's fine and everything but the I think the real value and going to college is being around people. Brian Lay said our our campus. We have we represent like fifty five or sixty different countries. And so you comedy sit in the Student Lounge. In you'll meet people from around the world you'll hang on people who have different ideas and different accents and different styles of clothing and everything until you learn so much by being around those people give us more home on a computer you can get an addition but you're not gonna you're not going to enjoy it. The international students like the American people from other countries. That have to go home like they did so a lot of kids in in in the states. Mostly Americans were we have. We have students visiting from allergies in. Us y'all bounce We got a lot of Americans who live in Japan and so they stayed with Sino-japanese students are still here will. Yeah we lost. Probably you've probably like twenty percent of our students fled around the world. Which is her right. Yeah so but it seems weird because it doesn't seem like the viruses hit you guys going back home or the viruses. I know man. I'm trying to get my mother from Delaware to come here. Yeah that's right. I want to take it to the Blunt Roy. Let me get one more question for. I went on rate my professor. You do really well rate my professor. A you have a walk. I delete all the bad ones. Yeah so so. What is that like Yelp for professors gave man so like most of them say Georgia's cool hilarious lecture a little profane he's a Rockstar. His power points are great points gray. And there's this one guy. He had George. Twice George twice a former temple career. I would die before taking him again. The man drains the little bit of fun and injuring that has left in journalism. He hate all right in including his own and he loves me cloud himself. You have to take him ignore his advice. How would you respond to that kid that Kid i? I didn't delete that one yet. I didn't even know I was still on that. It's always the truth man. I haven't seen that thing like ten years. I'm here you're through the second pops up. You have such a high radio. They're like literally like ninety. Nine point five percent are all great. And there's this gap there's always gotta be one Batman's always GonNa be people there people that give thumbs down's on Youtube to like you know Otis redding right. How how how? Yeah songs terrible discussion accurate. But I'm sitting on the fucking dock of the bay to pay used to teach. I used to teach classes like two to three hundred people right in so I mean they always going to have people hate you so I you know over over a tough that class for about eleven years on the main campus in Philly over eleven years probably about six thousand students which is most of the restaurants and an attending staff and so on on. So there's always going to be people who h you don't let don't let Greg Greg Saito in just to spice it up for no reason about my dog. Banks wasn't nothing. She won review about the dog. Maybe maybe he's got his own. Maybe he's got a professor. Mookie looking to the blunt here. We got rapid fire questions. Rapid fire answers. Where where do you come back to philly where you'RE GONNA? What are you gonNA get your first Tuesday Tuesday? Hoagies A hoagie Georgia. A great big Your Music Guy. So what's the first concert you ever went to a man? I don't want to tell you that stuff.

We know's go street artist seated at. He did a design for US. That was really cool. Credible artists yes General Naga fee. But I think the art stuff standout until issue but heavy slime I really liked that cover too. He he's a he did the the twenty seven club and so it was a twenty-seven issue twenty seven club when other musicians passed away and so he did some really hot hot flashes. My my walk up I. What is an Undergrad? An underrated the band or artist in Philly. We should all be listening to man. I'm out of the loop man I've been out for like almost two years now breaking out. I mean Mac and Bush still one of my all time favorite so but doesn't it and like just just a great live show. I mean I'm like one of the reasons why going Ri shows as refund gets into it and not only gets the crowd and get into it and I love seeing passionate music. Immense quo Bursa from Pussy puts on an amazing show and she's an incredible woman she's like a BCC up tiny energy dollars. Yeah was the worst job you ever had Elect on my job my job working at a Bain's Deli in the mall but you know it when the worst thing in the entire world. We had a Hoagie hoagies for a sneaker hookups and so I had some friends who work at logger and so we we. We used to make deals together. That Way Nice. How do you maintain On the flight from Philly to Tokyo was something that you would advise. You will give someone that has to take a flight that well. I don't know man I. I don't sleep general life right when I get on an and I don't have access to email all this other stuff. I just sleep young. I usually buy like Willie to Minneapolis. Minneapolis Tokyo Minneapolis to Tokyo for like eleven twelve hours and I sleep. There's something about the home of the plane that knocks me right out. It's like a that like air conditioned sal. I love it when the when the three of us come over there for the the actual live show. Where where's the first place? You're taking us out to eat and drink.

The Be Happy Project (Part II) The Pursuit of Plan B, Thoughtful Risks, + Define Your Own Success with Dana-Maxx

"Listen interesting and listen to that voice that knowing inside of you that knows where the spark of magic lives within you and go after that magic in a thoughtful risk. Taking way as a risk taker as somebody who wants to start your own business wants to start your plan. B whatever it is your side-hustle your dreamer are your creator. And so you have to live through that you have to be true to yourself but do it in a thoughtful risk the way. Now let the magic begin pal. Jae jao maya me's it's rakha your soul sister right here and you know this time. This moment in time. I feel as though there has been a period of deep perhaps even one of my most recent deepest moments of introspection for complete shift in my world view perhaps the chaos in the world has rattled and shaken up a lot of us to awaken us to something more of what this world is going through and perhaps also what that means for this individual. This vessel along with the collective. If that makes any sense. I feel like a lot of us are going through this. And it's honestly shifted my perception in a whole new way and of course it's made me realize to be super grateful for where i'm at but also what can i do next to upgrade to level up in my own life so i can make a difference in another way. My soul feels called. It's wild the different ideas that are coming into into heart. Which i'm being very vague because the specifics are very sacred at this moment till i decide exactly which avenue. I'm going to walk down but if you're going through this to and for whatever reason you're feeling called to another lane or something new or whatever is perhaps something not to be ignored. Perhaps it something that you can do simultaneously with whatever you're doing now because we're not one dimensional creatures you know we're multidimensional and there are a variety of different lanes that we can expand our world on and yes of course. I think it's great to have tunnel vision and focus on the one thing that is truly bringing you a lot of happiness and grow from there but perhaps whatever you're expecting or excited about next branches off from that and this also applies to those who might feel stagnant in life in somewhere stuck or they're in a lull because they may feel like they are stuck in their environment because of for whatever reason family finances or other physical or mental barriers while. I think that this message is a beautiful message for you and also a beautiful message. For those who dreamt their life about their world would look one way and perhaps they accomplished it. Perhaps they didn't. I was jus- face timing. One of my best friends said he was on this podcast before and we were talking about our dreams yesterday and what we also dreamt of since we were young and how it evolves perhaps. There's something our world or bust explore before we make that happen or perhaps our soul is called to follow something else. That is actually going to really night us and it was just a beautiful to our conversation. And it's funny. How the episode today aligns with. Not only that conversation. But a lot of things that i've been going through and i feel like a lot of others are going through as well. I am having other visions to expand as in a plan. B with your magic. Perhaps it's something that might expand your. Oh magic in some way or just expand my personal world in some way. But i think that the messaging behind this episode with the one and only dana. Max who is the creator of the be happy project. Which i recommend you check out if you haven't already at the be happy project on the instagram's and watch her many amazing interviews with a variety of visionaries who have also been on this podcast for example gabby bernstein and of course listen to the episode. That dana max was on. I believe it was october when she came on the podcast briefly touched on having a plan. B the beauty of it and pursuing it. I know that a lot of success in self help gurus share. Don't ever have a plan. B always follow the plan. A because if you have a plan. B it's basically an excuse for plan a to fail however what if the new ideas that come through are actually guiding you to a greater expansion of plan a or what if for whatever reason plan a is something that the mind the ego just created but your soul feels called to do something else and gone a different direction. And that's your plan b or if you feel stagnant and you're not so happy in your plan a anymore even though it was your dream at one point. Kinda like dana. Max will then. What's wrong with going and pursuing something new a plan b. There are a variety of reasons why people follow a plan b. So wherever you're at let's say right now you're in your plan a well. It's okay for you to move onward and forward with the plan b. And maybe it's even simultaneously happening alongside your plan a if plan a is very instilled an intact so there's so many beautiful messages throughout this podcast. That dana amax has for you. And i love this conversation. I also just absolutely love and adore her as a human and admire the fact that she worked so hard and is also a mama and she talks about that along with her advice for other mamas that are desiring to continue to pursue something for themselves and also for everybody some advice and tips on how to pursue a plan b during this wild time that we're in right now so this episode of course has soul like always but it's also very practical and i love the advice that dana max provides her. Many golden nuggets of wisdom also wanted to preface with a courtesy for the mamas out there. If your children are around or your child's next year and you're blasted in this the car. I love it but fair warning. There are some fun words on occasion. Just a fair warning. You do with that what you will. I don't always provide that preface as a courtesy. Though i would like to remember too but i've just been listing the episodes with swear words as explicit. So that's just something to keep in mind for future reference.

I believe it is time to let the magic. Begin with dana dana. Happy to have you back thank you. I'm happy to be here with you. My answer the best. So what is leading you up most in this wild season in the season of your life. Oh i'm having the unexpected blessing of being able to spend so much time with my family We're a healthy and safe and we've been shacking up together for several months now. My parents me my husband and my daughter my sister. So it's like olden days. I is amazing to have everybody your parents included in one house together but honestly it's so needed during this time. I'm in california. My parents are utah. And i was with them for a while and now i'm not with them and i'm like wanting to go back with them because i really appreciate that quality time. Yeah it's such a nice leading time so it's nice to have that support around you and that love abulait for facetime zoom. Like for my friend. That's what i'm grateful for it right. Imagine going through this quarantine without facetime zoom back in the old days or something. I can't think technology is up to speed right seriously. We're focusing today on the theme of plan b. So how would you define plan b. plan b. is where you remove any expectations that you have a the vision of life that you thought would be and you embrace what is yes. So what would plan. Ab then you know to me plan a. It had a lot of expectation a lot of long term goal setting. And there's nothing wrong with goal setting but envisioning this like perfect life. Are you stink. Your life should be when i'm going to achieve acts by date. I'm gonna do this by this. I'm going be the next big thing. I'm gonna whatever it is and there's really it's a it's without as much thought plan has thought it's it's a risk but it involves. It's thought full risk that. That's what i was missing in. My plan is the thought behind the risk. The thought behind the rest of the more mindful way actually practical way and also a surrendering way which is one less. Anxiety helps with their mental health. What do you think about. The the common notion that self help gurus and success. Skiers say when they're like go full force on that plan a don't even think about a plan b because then you will not be successful at the plan may otherwise you're guaranteed to fail or whatever you know just really heightened this notion that only have a plan may say tankers on your absolutely i say fuck failure because walked the noise If you have to think it's it's hoping for the best and planning for the worst so in order to to take thoughtful risks. You need to plan out your certain extent your finances. You need to plan out okay. What are the pros and cons of of doing this. If this doesn't happen my still going to be happy and happiness. that's what i learned. Happiness should not be tied to the result. It should be tied to the process in the journey of trying to achieve that result. Whether or not it happens you're still going to be okay. That's that's the whole plan b to me. I love that you said that because a lot of people when they get to their destination they say man but that journey like the journey to get there. I look back at that time. Reflect back at the time. I just felt so nourish unhappy and sometimes even when people get there for example. Let's say someone wins the presidency or whatever a lot of times they say they're most depressing bakes. They finally achieved what they've been chasing their entire life. Yeah and you know it to it. Just you're able to appreciate the journey so much more. Because i think when you think so far out and you don't think about the possibility of what could happen. Will they still be happy. If i don't achieve this I think that you are actually in a way inviting failure end because you haven't even thought it through and so you know you have to have hope you have to have fade. You have to believe in yourself and you have to manifest what will be as if it already is but during that process you have to already be okay with what is and so as as a fallback and A lot of people don't think that way and so when they get they get that goal they they reach that achievement. It's not good enough and it was like okay. I got here now. Let me get there. And everything is never never good enough for them. It's never the like the gold bar of achievement and so it's important to live in the moment and be appreciative. Of what is in this moment and just realize you're going to be okay. I'm happy i'm happy. I'm happy with you having this conversation. And if it leads to something else great. If it doesn't. I'm so grateful for this. So that's that's what i think. Plan b involves. That's so key for one's mental health. See we keep striving for a variety of things. I want to continue to expand and grow. However where. I'm at right now. It would only do me disservice to not be so thankful for everything that she didn't. Let's say that. I didn't have this podcast. Even i still remember looking back in wanting something like that but still i was so nourished in my that. It made me happier and then when the podcast happened i remember going through a dark period. Nothing to do with all of this. But because i wasn't really taking care of myself in a practical way is so key to be so content and that's when i learned to really love what is in this moment and i gave me so much peace during the dark period. Where i was able to transmute it. I love what you just said that. So part one so many people can connect to that. And i was definitely somebody who since i was a little girl i had a plan was no sandy and i thought that's how my life was going to end up. I was gonna be the next. Diane von furstenberg. That was my goal to be this amazing superstar fashion designer and I reached that to a certain extent. But what i realized is i. I never knew what success meant to me when i started out either. And that's that's part of when you transition to your plan. B learned so much. Learn the lessons and so when i reached certain milestones and successes it was never good enough. I was like okay now that i did this. I'm gonna do this and my happiness was tied to those milestones. I never appreciated the journey. If a failure happened or Lost miss an opportunity or someone rejected me. I felt crushed. And so everything was tied these these milestone moments and I learned so much through my failures. And when i had to close my business i was in the fashion industry for over twenty years and when i had to had my own company when i closed my company i felt a tremendous amount of grief and pain. I felt like i. The love of my life just died and i didn't even know who i was. I lost my identity myself and so there were years in between what i'm doing now and where i was those were good. I call it like intermission when you go to show and you see the first half and then there's intermission and then you see the second half. I was in intermission for quite some time. And i didn't know where i was. It was like this weird middle space. And i was so lost and but you know what that was the time that i chuck as an opportunity to grow myself grow inside because if you do this off work you'll get the self like when he gets this self like all of a sudden opportunities come right because you know who you are you know your worst. You know how to treat yourself so that others can treat you and all of it is tied into this beautiful package that i like to call lampy absolutely and i mean i've seen it. I'm sure you've seen it as well when people have done the a work and they do genuinely like what is suddenly people draw in what their initial plan a. Perhaps it looks slightly different in. Perhaps it's actually more of what the feeling was that they wanted from their plan a or another manifestation of it but the plan a somehow gradually manifest in many ways because they became authentically than yes and sometimes we don't know what our plan b. is for years it's the years that the tell us and so I felt so so so lost like i. I had this purpose in her life. Since i was seven and suddenly i had no purpose and so i know a lot of people can religion that where you're stuck in this place. Where either you have a job where you john and you feel loss. You feel like there's more to my life than what i'm doing right now and so it took a lot of internal growth To figure out what my next her and plan was but life has a crazy way of leading you in that direction yet. I never in a million years. What have guessed that because of going through the grief the failure the loss of my business the loss of myself that i would ever have started to be happy project and all the things it to be. Happy project are now gearing towards. Sometimes i stop. And i'm like you know what i'm still on the journey of finding my purpose and everything when you're in not the plan b. Free mind you you never give up on roast involving yourself and continuing to find your purpose and path but you're not constantly going after the gold star. You're you're like happy with what it is. And because of that frame of mind amazing things continue to come your way absolutely totally came to mind uniform. How when you were talking beforehand. And i said i was often graham to release love things but also some things came into clarity so wild like all these different stories. The narrative gets like you curate. Them the new. See something and the universe gives you the different pat to navigate and then suddenly something becomes so clear and i'm right now releasing really learning to let go of this rhetoric so i can expand more because it's been a barrier in some way i don't know how to describe that without being so big gig i get what you're saying. Yeah yeah and so. I am excited to step into something new. Still keeping the podcast. But something came. And and i don't know where this leaves but it's another plan b and i'm really excited for where that goes and that's that's what plan b is about right so plan easy. It's not just the set in stone vision that you have of your life because your heart is open. Your mind is open. You're living in this present moment. You're grounded in whatever is it has arms and ranches that come off of it and so a lot of things can be attached to it and come from it and grow from it. It's a beautiful tree. it's it's always blooming if you water it in the right way like the good stopped water the good stuff every day. So if you're watering in the right way you're keeping your head in the right space. It's almost like it's a cool superpower lamb bay because it's just you're right in this moment your eight year presently living in joy and contentment and good. Things always come from those places. So what about those who feel like they're very stock. Maybe they feel as though they've been very successful materially or financially or even relationship believe relational but they feel like they are in some way and they don't know how to move forward. What was your advice for them. I always practice the pause. So i try not to make any decisions out of emotion and so you have to step back. Take a deep breath. Ask your closest friends family. Inner circle People who really know you best what they think Listen to your intuition because it doesn't matter what anybody announce i'd says it's you have to trust your decision in your journey and sometimes there is no right or wrong answer and it so gray but if you listen to your intuition and you do what you feel is right ethically morally spiritually. You're not gonna be wrong. And so i used to think when i went through so much failure i used to think my god. I've made so many bad stupid decisions. That obviously had caused the failure. Yes through certain extent. Take accountability For some of the failures that i experienced at the same time now. Because i'm in a different place. I can look back and see. That was life's way of moving me forward That was a that was an opportunity for growth yup. I don't look at anything as failure these days. Like if somebody rejects me an opportunity. Some of like. Oh now. I don't wanna do that or someone doesn't see my value and worth or whatever it is like okay. See like there's plenty of people who do so you just keep moving forward. Thank you for saying this. It's like a new. I feel like i've experienced a new level of this recently. It's been a reminder for me where i literally had to not give two shits about what certain people think of me and that has allowed me to go of the rhetoric. I was talking about ram like what is really making me happy. Am i doing this for me or my doing this. Because i want to be accepted by whoever and then when. I really came to terms with anna's and i was like wait. How can i do this. Reme- became so empowering. And i'm on a completely different path in this moment it's so weird but i'm so happy about it. We look like i feel you point right like it's you can get to this place of making decisions that feel good and it doesn't matter what the outcome is because you can look it in the face and say you know what i did this because it felt right in my soul in my heart. It doesn't matter what people are gonna think made as a matter how this comes across. I'm doing it because it feels good. I know i'm doing the right thing. And so you know a lot of it has to do with letting go of shame letting go of guilt Forgiving yourself for past mistakes It's also learning how to not care what people think is much in caring what you think about yourself. What are some questions. That people can ask themselves introspective questions asked themselves to see. Perhaps what is holding them back and then give themselves permission to move forward. I mean intuitions. A huge one. So a lot of people say Wizards intuition gut assigned from higher source. Whatever it is intuition is knowing. You don't need facts though. It's a knowing inside of you that something feels good. It feels right and you have to get what i always suggest was go to a quiet space a space. Feel safe for you. You can light some candles. You can Play some nice music. Whatever the environment is that you create the feel safer you. That's where you go to listen your intuition and intuition. We'll talk to you if you allow it and the way to become friends in trust. Your intuition is by listening to your intuition in small moment. So i'm talking about for example if i go if i'm out shopping and i'm putting a shopping cart away and i put it. You know you see people who put it on like the the media in between the cars if you do that and something inside. He says that's not where it should go. And you listen to that voice and then you take your car and you back world other cards act. That's the universe is way of saying. Thank you for listening. Now i can give you more. You've leveling you up. And so you have to listen to the small things if i'm if i'm in this is excessively but if i'm in my bathroom and a us i wash my hands on as talented i'm a hand and i just throw it down and a voice inside of me says no no no pick out. Put it back where it should be. I listened to avoid. Because if i'm listening to that voice if not gonna it's not gonna give me bigger things in life. I appreciate the small things.

So beautiful hockey one. Pursue your plan b while they have another job so you have to like in this honestly a mistake that i made with plan a. because i was so gung ho about my plan i go. It goes back to Thinking through making thoughtful risks are taking thoughtful rest. Not just taking a risk and so. I quit my soul. Time job to move to do the really uncalled thing. I moved back home with my parents and my twenties to save money. When i was working fulltime i worked as a designer for marc jacobs. Marc jacobs and becky johnson. I saved all my money. As i'm gonna start my business move back home but didn't realize is once i quit my full time job and started my business. I had no money coming in anymore. So even my saved up all this money in two seconds i was spending that money on creating my business building it until i really learned from that and so anything i do right now. I have two part time jobs. And then i have the be happy project so i really have three part time jobs in my life and i'm a mom i have a toddler at home and i'm a wife and i'm a friend and you know i want some self care time and i'm doing all this in the pandemic so it is possible. I will not give up my part time. Job is because i wanna see that money coming in because if there's a moment where i feel You know nervous. Or i feel like oh someone just you know. I lost this financial opportunity with the be happy project. Which is something i want to continue to monetize and build and it has been but i'm not a place where i can do it fulltime and so the minute i feel rejected by someone or whatever i know. I'm still getting money from my other jobs. Yes it takes away that That sting of rejection or failure. And i also not. I'm not fully dependent on it. So i'm able to appreciate what is more and by doing that. I have created so many more opportunities than i could have ever imagined through this and you know what i do at night. I like after i put my daughter sleep. I spent two or three hours doing work on the happy project. When my daughter naps i try and spend a least a half hour to an hour every day. I mean doesn't if you can dedicate like one hour a day it adds up and you know sara blakely who's the founder spanks. That time she started she literally was working fulltime job and at night for an hour every day she would work on spanks and so if she can do it anybody can do it. I mean and she she put like five thousand dollars towards banks and now it's a multibillion dollar company yet wow success stories Her story But the point is you. Anybody can do it if you want to do it. So all of this gold. Is your baby nap right now. She is yeah. My husband has the monitor all good. I mean that's the point. I'm like okay. She's napping that's what i'm gonna do this. Podcast like you just make it work. And i think a lot of people do that I was doing work for my other job before this. So it's like you just do it when i ask. People don't realize it takes a lot of time. I always figured her her full name but her account is birds. Capella i think it is. You know she's very big. Unlike body positivity she's awesome so we follow each other on instagram. And i remember her. She posted a story that She was worked. She has like over million half hours or something and she's always doing these advertisements in liquid. She's so successful and she shared that it took her six years of not making any money from this account and then two years so the seventh easier. She was doing it part time. And then by the ninth year. It took off and she started. She was able to do it. Fulltime and what people don't realize people will think that this has been her full time job for nine years. Maybe it's like people have this. This caught behind it but they just don't realize how much work and time it takes. She's example to there's so much power in just being tenacious and the compound fact as well of doing the little things every day does add up to it. Its goal by. So you are probably a big proponent of You love having different streams of income as like. Yes because i used to. When i had my first company may am fashion business. I was focused on one stream of income. And you know when you have when you're entrepreneur. You have your own business even if you have a big company or small. It doesn't matter everything falls on you and so it's a tremendous amount of stress. It's twenty four seven job And so in your solely focused on this one stream of income and so right now because end the differences too. I feel like. I'm really myself in this. I can just be my south Not people accept me. It is what it like. I just i feel good about myself so And i'm doing something with a higher purpose and meaning to it which was important for me and so although i'm still building this plan b and i don't think it ever ends I just feel good about it. And so hopefully i answered your question. I don't remember it. You're absolutely that's so good to know because it helps you not care so much about what other people think but also you don't feel you're worth is based on the success of your one business. Yes and it's you know. There's so much. Shame i think in our society Admitting that it's like a part time you're not working fulltime and and it's not as you know you're not a success was everybody thinks you are. Oh fuck like come on. You're making a smart decision by having multiple streams of income and you're being smart about your money and so i'm way smarter this time around than i was the first time and the first time i only had one stream of income so i mean just because i'm not People were like shocked when it's not my full time job. I'm like no. I'm like mom. I have all these other things like. It is what it is right now. But i i love it and making money from it and i'm inspiring others and i'm helping people and it feels so good and so that's it you know a period on a story okay. So moms moms need to hear this. Because i know that you know. Sometimes they are not going to say. But i know that even myself figured like oh man if i'm a mom than what is that distracts me from you. Know upper level in career when that's far from the truth is not a barrier by any means in so how can moms navigate their plan b. m. similar to if you have a full-time job because mommy is a fulltime job and i don't care if you've helped or not still full time job and so it's similar. If you had a full time you know a career. That was a fulltime job. You do this. You build your purpose. Your side-hustle would your dream. Whatever you want to label it You build it on the side when you can and if you can't take even a half hour day which i think everybody chan at night or in the morning you get up earlier stay up late or whatever it is then. You're making up excuses. Why are not building this plan bay and so there's no shame in it. I mean if you the only person that's holding you back is yourself just because your mom doesn't mean that you can't achieve goals like that's the most ridiculous thing ever you. You can't be sexy or whatever it is like the it's all within your power of your mind. You hold the power and to mom at the same time and you can do it all a really really can. Oh my gosh. And i think that the biggest barrier for sure is the mind telling me that he pointed that out. So perhaps you didn't. Someone needs to seek therapy just to release their thoughts bent out their thoughts because honestly moms they deserve the utmost respect in our society. Are you kidding me. Like taking care of a human being assembled scenically. Also you know fueling their soul to which in turn actually does help the child as well when the mom sees her value in worth. allows a child to also help see their value worth otherwise it takes a lot of work. And if you look at it this way to if you were able to create a human that that is the biggest. That's why i'm here. You will ever work on creating it's of you and your mind and your body and your spirit and your heart or able to create that you can certainly create a plan b. so the only limitations are in your mind There's so much power. Just letting that go and i feel like i've always slow. We let that go to different degrees. It's interesting how many layers there are two carrying about what people think so many layers and really at the bottom of it is shame and grenade brown has a lot of great books on shame and so i would highly recommended reading her box yet through that process but once you let go of the shame. You won't care what people think in for me when i close my fashion business. The number one thing. That i felt was shame. I didn't even know it was shame i was so i. Was you know in a lot of magazines dressing celebrities and all these things in assigned to stores and i was so worried about what the industry would think of me what my friends thought of me. What my family what My peers thought. They're all gonna look at me under like a magnifying glass. Like a total failure. This loser you know and it's simply not true. People really just aren't going to take the time to really do that. And what was yeah. Some people ended up distancing themselves from me. They probably did think. I was a loser in a failure. But you know what. I don't need those people in my life anyway. I was shocked at how many people in the industry were actually like whatever you do next. You're gonna be great. And i was like well. Thank you liked. were looking at. Maybe they were underneath at least to my be supportive and now today when people find out that i'm the person behind the be happy project which has almost five hundred million dollar five hundred million goals. I wonder five hundred thousand dollars. You just shocked and was like oh my god. I knew you were going to do something like to to the people to the people that knew me in the industry are not surprise and then some people are shocked that i was able like to just go from one thing to another do a total career change and so you just have to listen to your instincts in care what people think. It's not like you had them in mind when you were in the process of making this happen or even now know i still don't think about honestly i think the community and i try to hear what people are telling me little. Thank true to myself. But i i don't think about anyone on the surface really brought such a good point because there is such a balance i think i still want to definitely care. N deliver. what listeners wanna hear you know but while simultaneously being authentic to my evolution and it's it's It's there are moments i think it's it's challenging and you know. Sometimes you see that people pull back. They're not as interested because they feel like. You're not You just as doing what you were doing. And sometimes it growth can be intimidating to people who were not growing themselves know if people are things stuck in their comfort zone. They're gonna look at someone who is elevating themselves as a threat. You're always gonna have people who either if you're growing mayfield. Feel you suddenly authentic that.

What are some different ways. People can navigate a plan. B during covid nineteen yesterday question. So again i think it just goes back to i would not I would suggest not quitting your fulltime job. If you have full time job keep on that path. The especially because Were in such unstable Unpredictable times right now and so you want to have something that feels safe while you navigate such a rocky journey of starting a company or whatever it is so definitely having the fall back on is important Taking whatever time you can choose to dedicate yourself to growing this plan. B and again it could go back to just take a half hour every day or you focus it on the weekends where you know. Let's uber nine to five monday. Through friday job and your kids to care for cook at night or whatever it is okay then on weekends take some time to yourself. You know that could be your self care time developing your purpose in your passion And i think while you're doing all this work on yourself too so whatever that means for you that means that can mean listening to spotify in creating a playlist of like mantra music. That keeps you in the right head space To family and friends who support you on your journey Whatever makes you feel good and allows you to continue to reclaim yourself in such a rocky period of time. You need to do that whether you're fully invested in your plan b or you're not you need to always do self work because a plan b at some point may go back to being your play right. You have to be grounded. You have to be stable again. It's like everything that it is a beautiful tree. We have your plan b. Is this beautiful tree branches that lead to other things if you water the good stuff. The good stuff's going to grow into these beautiful full tree in bloom bloom but you your roots always have to be planted. Your feet have to be planted you. You gotta be grounded so that you can stay present in the moment and appreciate everything that happens and be happy in that moment to yes. What about okay. So when he was saying this. I had a friend that came to heart. And he's he's amazing he hasn't been able to find because during this time. You know there's not a lot of job opportunities that are opening up pitas like shoots or whatever like photo shoots and i know that. There are many other people in his shoes. Oh the reason why. He came to mind as well as because he's had this plan a his entire life and he's recently realized he's letting that go the plan b. It's just a blink campus. It's a blank canvas so given the nature of today. How can one begin to approach a plan. B it's not i mean. I hosted a while back in our stories on instagram Different companies that were offering job opportunities from home. So you can work remotely and do other things. I believe that there's so many opportunities out there right now to work from home and make some money. Whether it's freelance writing or you know. I mean like i don't know i read the the craziest stuff like people were doing photo shoots from home as an example so i mean that opportunities are endless in a way right now to work remote a make money So i do believe there's opportunity out there. You have to find them so again. It goes towards manifesting. If that's something you want to do you have to go and do it. You have to be proactive about your own life. And there's a million excuses we can come up with with why we can't do something whether it's during kogo or not were always gonna find reasons to let those limitations gerald because you have to be able to look back on your life and she'll good about the decisions that you make and you don't need money to do all these things like honestly you can start building your plan b. I mean to be happy project literally. All i did was. I went on instagram and i was like i'm gonna start at age of quotes. I was like my literally my first thought. I want to name it to be happy project. 'cause i've learned that you have to be happy in the moment and appreciate what is and so i'm going to name it. That and i posted like one quote and it got like maybe twenty likes team. Like that. And i was like okay. Cool like it was for me. I don't rhyme and for years. I never spent any money. I posted one thing day and it just grew. And so you really don't. Even during that time i was i was monetize. It small leased from it. Which i was shocked. I was able to even do. Because i wasn't thinking that way i was doing it and so i think you can't have excuses. You can't limit yourself. There are ways to do things during covid when you have no money when you're broke. Whatever it is you can still do it. I love that breakdown. Limits be proactive. I think that is a key. And they're a variety of different ways to manifest manifest. What are you talking about. Oh my god. I'm a big believer manifestation but I dude in various ways. I mean i cre- vision boards of my life and i'm still live in the present woman while additioning where i wanna go. Division work could be something as small as it doesn't have to be these wild long-term huge goals. It could be okay. I wanna start a business. And i wanna find a partner. Okay so the pictures on your vision board can be of you. You know someone a picture of someone's shaking someone's hand that you know that symbolizes a positive partnership. Something is moving forward. It could be someone creating it could be the small moments that you controversial. Where because that will lead to bigger moments I think you know manifesting money as if it's in this you currently have it in. This moment is huge. Clean out your wallet. Get everything in order. You gotta clean out your space in the chaos in your space in order to bring peace and joy and money into your life and there's no shame in that like people are scared thing. I wanna make money like okay. Money is just an. I read this like recently. Like money is just paper in energy that you put towards it developing a positive relationship with monies of and Just continuing to work on yourself. Listen to positive uplifting using. I love the always talk about him. I love the artists laundry. Al l. o. N. d. r. e. l. l. e. he has like this amazing positive affirmation music. I listen to anywhere i'm going. It puts me right head space There's so many ways to manifest what you want in this life light a candle do. I don't know if you're into crystals that might be a little who for some people. But i'm not into criminals but if you're into crystals whatever it is find something that speaks to you that's way even looking in the mirror and saying affirmations everyday like i am kind. I am smart. I am you know worthy of my dreams. Whatever there are so many google's a great resource and google and look up different ways to manifest. And from what you want to happen in your life. And i think that the biggest thing instead of just used to think. Okay well now. The universe is conspiring. And there's this portal opening up an entering into and all of a sudden. This is going to be my new reality in now. I really realized that it's more. So it shows the universe where it shows your higher power whatever you want to label the higher beings and yourself more so than anything that you're showing up for yourself and you care about where your future leads. You care about You care about you you know you care about you and therefore you are opening yourself up you subconsciously to more possibilities and opportunities because you're focused on it and so you never know what may happen and i think that's the biggest part when it comes to. I think that's why people are are so pro all these different manifestation tools like i was big on all of them as well and then for a while as like well. What the hell why you know this. This doesn't seem to be working out. But then i realized looking back i manifested the mall. Maybe in a different way but it was something. That was more in alignment. With like how i feel about myself in my worth and therefore aligned with other opportunities people that match that works you know. I think that's a big portion of what people miss about. Manifestation manifestation is not just the thought you're putting out there your energy has your vibration has to match that thought. Yes exactly what you just because you inside that. That's when the universe word you you can say all you want from your mind. I wanna make five million dollars. But if you're not in your heart and in your soul aligning with that. The universe isn't gonna give me what you want. I'm trying to comes in unexpected ways and so you have to be open to the universe working. It's magic if your heart and your thoughts and your words and your energy are all lined. The universe will bring it to you happen to me. I i used to manifest. Just my thoughts out quite does not working and then start manifesting everything was aligned and suddenly like opportunities were coming to relieve it. I was like wow and so yeah. it's all it all works together. It has to go hand in hand. I love this so much man. Is there any other messages before we continue on. Pla the last questions messages. Definitely i wanna share People that have changed careers. Were in people on like. I've snow money. But i'll just aim a few Donald fisher was forty and he had no retail experience before he started the first gap store. And that's just one. Jack couvert worked as a scientist before inventing the cheese regarding that. I am going to name a few an elaborate on any of these as well. I keep a few in my mind. So that way i always remember. They started on a totally different career paths and success through their plan base. Tim zag. It was an attorney and then he started The big jagat food review. Vera wang was a figure skater in a journalist and now she's one of the biggest fashion designers and she went into fashion at forty years old I'm gonna name to more julia. Child worked in advertising before writing her first cookbook and becoming a chef a renowned chef to fifty years old fifty. That's pretty remarkable And my favorite. Walt disney who. I'm obsessed with disney. Walt disney was rejected and fire from being a newspaper editor because quote unquote. He lacked imagination. Ahead no good idea. There are so many people who started on one path and you know through failure obvious are through the universe lying to redirect them or through their hearts. I want more whatever it is. They then went to plan b. And that is what that's where the success was plan b. okay. I have major chills right now and wow did disney show them otherwise than never a limited by what other people were labeling him as so it just shows you that literally the possibilities are endless and whatever path. You're walker right now. If you're not happy with it or you're ready to evolve from it. It's okay to move on to something else. Tc tc thoughtful risks. That's what's about thought porous. I like that. And then yeah. It's smart to be practical honest for a long time as well. I was like you know what. I know that i will always be taken care of which i do and i still believe that like i'm always taking care of but i did it in a more. I was more blinded by this perspective. Where it just kind of allowed me to. I'm thankful for everything. And i did not take some thoughtful risks when people say like take these risks and just go and live your dream and everything's gonna work out. I do think that that's dangerous. Advice it's smart to be thoughtful. Do something that's right for you and then you can go and take the leap. Yeah and it goes back to. You are the person that you're leaning on then continue with your full time job and for a half hour hour night. Whatever time you may have whether it's every night or on the weekends dedicate that time to building your plan b and so anyone can do it. It's a matter if they really want to do because a lot of people feel safer in their comfort zone now the actually step out of it but you are capable absolutely even if you. Let's say you go through your plan. A that doesn't work out and threw plan bay. You're still gonna make mistakes because you're you man and i think we're all in perfect. Humans of the most important thing is to take those mistakes and turn them into lessons and opportunities for growth. And so you don't repeat the same mistakes and so it's okay if you make mistake it's okay if you like fucked up and you know are in debt or whatever. The scenario may be But as long as you learn from it and when you start your plan b plans to your plan to whatever it is you had you. Just don't repeat that don't mean that. Okay so the last question that i ask all the guests and you're going to probably say something completely different than you did last time given this different narrative that we've talked about today. So how would you advise zero magic listeners. To create their own magic. Listen to your intuition and listen to that voice that knowing inside of you that knows where the spark of magic lives within you and go after that magic in a thoughtful risk taking way because as as as a risk taker is somebody who wants to start your own business who wants to start your plan. B whatever it is your side-hustle your dreamer heart your creator and so you have to live through that you have to. You have to be true to yourself but do it in a thoughtful risk. Will i love this thoughtful risks. I feel like i need to place this on may near something thoughtful risks. Yeah because usually you difference between just taken risk in a thoughtful risk and so much more power behind taking off thoughtful risk and issue being gentle and compassionate and understanding of yourself and where you are in what is practicing the pause jumping into things and doing things with. It's kinda like taking recipes like jumping into the ocean without a raft or something it software rescues. They're gonna jump into the ocean. I'm gonna have my wrath with me exactly ever you know. They mean as backup just in case. So that's the difference. It's the little thing and something that also just came to mind is taking a risk is more so following what the mind wants but then taken. A thoughtful risk is more so following. What the intuitive voices where the intuitive voices guiding you. 'cause they're not gonna just blindly. That voice will not just blindly guide you unless they've got you. The inverse has got you. Yes yes i love that. The intuition is your what do you call those. The lifesaver the raft might delays yet. That's still exactly dude. This is so great. I'm so thankful for you also. Everybody go follow dana. Max at the be happy project on instagram. And is there any other place the means for. But we've stuck coming up twenty twenty one so keep an eye out the you so much for coming back on out. Thank you for your time. And i absolutely love this podcast so i so appreciate your light in your your airy nasa about you your spirit i love you think your knees that is a rat is irap for this episode that i hope that some things spoke deeply to you expanded you in some way. Please let me know it. So you can catch me on instagram at raquel mantra as bill raquel a different way than most. So you can see the spelling in the show notes or. Hang out with your knees. The like-minded very conscious inexpensive and helpful soles on the year on magic facebook group especially a place to turn to when it comes to. Well whatever you're going through and there are several tools on the euro magic dot life membership site all right. Well thank you so so much and have a magical rest of your day.

Thank you so much for joining on the show today. Hey it's exciting always good to talk to a fellow Houstonians awesome well. You have this new book coming out. Shut up and listen. Why write this book now. You know kind of interesting. I always thought about writing a book but I said I'm going to do it but I'm a little older when I'm not doing deals because I'll make it more of a tell all all that harpercollins contacted me and said we'd like you to write a business management book and we want it to be not a life story but more of how you did it. We've picked up all your articles. All your Tillman `ISMs of know your numbers are no spare customers. Take no out of a tabulated the 95-5 rule be platform and so we sat down and they wrote me out a nice check and it was kind of exciting a New York publisher would want to do this then. It's a really good book. We put a lot of effort into it like we do anything around here and I think it's great for entrepreneurs and great for anybody audie. It's more of a lifestyle but this is the best way to do it scraped here and I want to go back to Tillman in high school and in College. What were you like. They surely couldn't make an A. in English even if I tried a more better history numbers math what I was good at normal guy. I you know I would like to say I was a leader at a teacher once though tell me we can tell you for leader Mr Potato. We just need a lead in the right direction though so blade football. I'd like to think that I was in the right groups not that that matters anymore but everything goes but a lot of fun in high school. I think get your best. Years of your life is high school. I really do think that end today. You're on the Forbes list. You built billion dollar businesses you own the rockets split. I'm curious in your twenties or in college. What were your unresolved questions. That made you worry at the time were first off. I was always very competitive and always wanted to be successful restful and even when I was in my twenties do that. I had an entrepreneurial brain even in high school and college. Is that a new that what I wanted to do and so you know I had the passion and I always had that theory of you know you do whatever it takes to get from point eight point though you know. I think my derive had a lot to do with it. I I'll believe that God gives you gifts and I can't play an instrument. I can't draw can't do lots of things but gave me a great business mind and so I see the opportunity entity and what were some of the things that you wish you had started doing or done more up much earlier in your life like specifically actions and activities with compounding effects. Are you know. I think I basically did what around wanted to do. I don't know that there's anything that I didn't do. He'll always trading stocks in high school. I mean so I knew that I had a brain for business and I knew I I didn't have a brain for and like I said you know started kind of do what I do even back then. What are some of your favorite tillman `ISMs that you want to be more popular. Oh no the ones I kinda threw at you. The ninety five five ruled your numbers. You know when things are really good. We think they're never going to be bad when things is a really bad. We forget that they're ever going to be good again. You know B Platt be does. I don't care if your dog which you that morning or you're fighting with your girlfriend. You know go go to work and play happy. Know your numbers look for the five percent wrong because ninety five percent of everything is right and you pay attention to the details on and on and on long from getting started decades ago I imagine you've had to evolve and evolve and evolve. What's that been like when you started this business. The world was a very different different place than it is today. How have you gone to dislike continue to grow well. You got to believe in change and other leading change change change and if you don't change you're gonNA get run over and no different than doing this right now. Somebody would have said five years ago. You'RE GONNA do in podcast you said what and a podcast is so this is the mainstream today social media's the mainstream television and the world is changing and what people watch and do when you'd better change with the going to get left behind and although I'm from Houston Texas I live in San Francisco and a lot of people in Silicon Valley. We'll be listening to this. How has technology impacted Your Business. And what do you want to see out of Silicon Valley that you haven't seen yet gosh I think they're staying ahead of us. from an analysis standpoint one of the things that if somebody said why you've been successful Tesla in your company and I would say because of analysis and we always know where we are will it made that possible as the great technology that we can be anywhere. I could be sitting there talking to somebody who's having dinner at San Francisco and look on my phone and say you know the services really slow tonight in this restaurant I would look at my phone and see what hourly early payroll or is in that restaurant currently and say you know what we're running too good of hourly payroll that means we don't have enough help there but it's just the amazing technology technology. Today is unbelievable. What do you wish if you had a magic wand. If you could invent anything today what would you invent that Silicon Valley one Joan fine figure route why air travel is exactly what it is and nineteen fifty that we're not going any faster in an airplane and I think in Silicon Valley could figure out that technology. We didn't take no seriously I mean think about it. You know air travel is no faster today than it was seventy years ago. That is very very true. I hope that changes soon but on the reference you employ how many people fifty thousand plus people yes. The restaurants casinos the amusement for everything. Ed with automation spoke out here in San Francisco Bunch. How do you think about that internally. No one hundred percent. I mean because of the cost of labor today you know being able to start using automation and do anything in your kitchens or your front of the House or your reservations. Which is there today? That's something that we would love see. Silicon Valley is improve even at a faster paced and they even are today and you have forecast. Is that right. Yes what have you you learn from your tits. They live in a different world and that's the world of tomorrow and so you need to think more like them or you're gonNA lose your customers and so it gets back to the change change change. What have they told you to change that. You were like no. That's wrong and then you were your prevent Now. Believe it or not nothing nothing because one of the reasons I've been successful is that I do listen and I do try to stay ahead of what's going on and so I don't fight it at all yeah. Ah for some of their ideas that you didn't fight you know everything from analysis to doing podcast or more important than doing tv today and different things like that got got an avid question about hard decisions surgeon running billion dollar businesses. You have to make some pretty critical at hardest citizens. Do you have any tactics around making challenging decisions. You know on a go. She ate hard but even when negotiate hard at the end. You say to somebody if you don't feel good about this. You need to feel good about it. You've you've got to go. She ate hard but everybody's got to feel good about the deal and talk a little bit about mentors who has mentor impacted you most in your business career in your personal personal life etc.. Who who would you want to thank you know I I get asked this all the time and even my kids and they realize because they've been with me that I never had that one mentor you're just kind of always watch successful people at everything and try to pay attention to certain things they did and how they lived and that was my mentor torch but I truly never had that one mentor got today. You are incredibly successful. I read that you've pretty much done everything you wanted to do in your business likely you're still playing the game. You're still out out there. What's keeping you up at night. What's worrying you. You know I worry about everything all the time but nothing keeps me up at night up real good about everything but always worry about everything in the day you stop worrying about everything that is when there's a paddle. Everybody's ass and that's another one. I might tilmis. There's a paddle for everybody's ass and I'm curious from a management perspective or from an entrepreneurial perspective other. CEO's what are some of the ineffective things. You see young people do that. You wish exchange young people today are too impatient and I think they're trying to gain too much knowledge to quick and trying to move up the ladder to quick instead of making sure that you understand the Business Nisa what you're doing and I can tell you I mean you can be the smartest person in the room but I'm GONNA out. Do you have history and there's nothing like experience. I don't care how smart what you are. You better have some experience. What would you recommend in that. I experienced take right out of school. If you are someone young and you don't really know what you want to be doing yet you gotta decide sad. If you have a business mind you WANNA be an entrepreneur go get your MBA but you know that it comes natural or does it come natural. The biggest thing you've got to do was God gave us all all a gift and you know what that gift is and that's what you need to go toward. You've got to take the gift guide gave you because he made us all different and gave us all different talents got it and then. I guess I guess if you're like. I don't have the gift one of the listeners. What questions when you ask yourself if you were that person. Is You know what were you doing as a kid actually aged absolutely that's exactly what I would say you. Were doing something as a kid that you liked doing that. You realized you were little better than the majority of the people you were doing it with. I don't care if it's playing games or or whatever okay then we'll find a way to get on game shows then right and could you ever expected did the amount of success had when you're in your twenties. You always thought that I would be successful. Okay and you know I can remember seeing seeing the first Forbes four hundred and I think you had to the last people on it. Were at two hundred million will now today. I think they're last people on it or close institute billion so you just never think that way. I knew I would be successful did always dream about being on the Forbes four hundred absolutely everything the thing that I think it comes out next week and I think I'm like thirty something that I would be that high you know or like the four hundred twentieth richest person in the world absolutely not I mean and that's why when people come to me and say I want to do what you did what you lower your expectations a little. You know. Let's read earned that first hundred million Elliot. Let's not worry about trying to get the five billion yet right because I could tell you everybody this. The first ten million in the first one hundred million is the hardest okay and and when you can get there that's when you're able to even move up quicker. You gotta find a way to make that first ten. Are you aiming for number. One on the Forbes list absolutely absolutely not absolutely not there's always somebody with a bigger playing a bigger house than the bigger boat somebody bigger on the fords four hundred so Nah so if I could just always say that two hundred I'll be pretty happy and what's something that you know. You could be doing right now but you haven't done yet personally. Personally professionally do more cardio since it's hard to Houston summer. Call thank you so much you come in to you.

There's just so much rockabilly any who came into speaking of rockabilly, we we have to we gotta intro. Oh Park I'm Terry first pot first part of 2021. We're just shanking. It's okay though. I'm Kerry. I'm Laura young and you're listening to sexy unique podcast insatiable bitch goddesses. off And speaking of rockabilly this episode is full of pin up page up after fucking pin up.

We invoked rockabilly Allah Nancy in the craft Armand rule is just rock he gave me and now I'm sorry instead of dead sharks washing up on the shore of Malibu or Santa Monica. We get Elvis impersonator impersonator. Xin wage up girls and me walking around going is everywhere. It's in me. You didn't have any way you did this for us. Yeah this episodes do you see this episode is kind of wild this episode was wild it lacked it felt the long and short it felt felt more often long for me, but mostly long. How are you doing? Like, let's do a check in like, how are you doing with this season? How are you doing with these women and Brett I like Maybe he's so vile that he's actually making me laugh now cuz he's like he's he's such a super king that he's like fully like this episode. I was like laughing at home cuz you are like he was like making me lul a little. Yeah cuz he's just so like He's also just a caddy. He's like kind of a bitch. He's a total bitch like when he's like, he's very like gosh he's kind of like it just it goes to show there's always the thing like straight man can just saw Problems by talking it out with each other off and I want to tell you that straight men are some of the gadius people you'll ever meet em, em, there's some of the most gossipy any like women or man. You'll ever meet truly vile. Yeah, but aren't they are right. Yeah. I mean Brett literally was a gossip queen in this episode. It was like Queen of he was he was like, whoa, queen bee. He Regina George fully Christy. Jao sitting having a powwow, but first and foremost, I demand Justice or Frenchy. Oh Gone Too Soon change and a queen amongst Queens. I got a message this weekend that I sent from a listener that I sent to Laura of. A video of Angelique on Celebrity Big Brother way back when who was in the house of Leslie Jordan and they got into a fight and it was like kind of disturbing you like a cute like tampering with the food or something in the house, which is like she cut up his clothes. I think which like that's unhinged wage. You gotta do what you gotta do though and big brother like it's all bets are off in that world. Like that's a whole. I've never gotten into big brother, but I know some big brother heads and it's like kill-or-be-killed. You know what I mean? A Frenchie makes an appearance on I Love Money season 2 and I think she's on Charm School season two or three. Yeah. She's in like I already loved her from her being on the show, but after watching her on I love money, I fucking I'm obsessed with her and then when she was on Celebrity Big Brother in 2014 appearance. At least she was the second most Googled person in the UK that year like beat out the queen. Wow her impact. She went Global. I love that and now like I need more country, but she need a friend. She Resurgence having like a huge Revival this year. And I mean, he's like, he's like a stalwart like look, he's like you can't really like but he he like went after her and was vicious in this club. She told her like a French slot God and said go off and sell your pussy like blah blah blah. He really sassed her in a way. I was like, no one talked to Frenchie like they had this like really awkward like moment where he like fake went to like swat at her and then she like kicked him when he was like this like they were thought they were like little children it was so it was in everyone was kind of like guys don't like everyone was really in the clip is concerned. It's like it was it was really weird. I didn't understand. I Aid didn't know that. I didn't know that he ever did that show. I'm copying like was is that the same that's that guy? Oh, but then but now you just you can't you can't mistake them know like she's just he is who he is and but then when he just disrespected my queen and like honestly, we don't support her to me wanting at a woman, but no he toured wage but like, but she gave it right back to him. She gave me right back to him and then she poured some water on some people's belongings and honestly, she almost won Celebrity Big Brother. I think she came in I don't know but Frenchie is just like a national and international treasure president understand her and it's his loss. Yeah, a few people do I thought yeah, they're the ones missing out ultimately speaking of missing out. So we start out the episode with the people. It's a breakfast little tribute to the people the Fallen the Fallen Soldiers along the way in this Quest For Love and he says to everyone we lost tonight. I'm sorry, but everyone here, let's get down to making bacon and they all took shots and then he gave okay. I'm going to sleep because I know I was like, oh my God Brett's partying again, and I thought he was going to rage but then he decided to call it a night. He did like six shot down. I feel like it's so weird to see them hanging out and like a homey looking kitchen. Also, we have to remember that. It's probably like 5 in the morning cuz he's dead. These kind of elimination nights like on The Bachelor. I've read that they last two like the sun comes up. What the fuc Yeah there. I mean there are some bachelor's where the for after the first night. There's people leaving and you see like the lavender few of the dog died. So like the seitan hours long and that's why people are so drunk and deliriously tired. So that's probably why there's a lot of like unhinged Behavior going on wage. They probably they have to like film lots of different takes. Yeah, and they probably like get drunk and they're like black out anyway, so Brett's like girls I'm gonna hit the bed and then he's he came around and he he you think he's going to give Aubrey a kiss, but he goes around her and then kisses everyone else except Aubry like he has no interest in Aubry zero real whoops moment but also Opera is dressed like him. So maybe he just thought it was his own reflection, and he didn't really kiss his own reflection. He was like, he ain't gay dog. I'm not I'm not kissing that girl, but it was it sets Aubrey off in a tailspin that unfortunately leads to her demise her removal, but it I mean I would be wage I would be so devastated about like that's like a really that's a tough pill to swallow. Yeah, that's like a Telltale sign that it ain't going to work out but it's all it's also true that Brett is he's so like clicky and like He makes moves and they're they're calculated. Yeah, and he I think likes to put some girls on edge or likes to put them in weird situations just to see how they'll react like all the power play Rainy Dayz decides to take things to the next level and she goes up to Brett and ask him if she can walk him to his room and he's like, well he'll well sure but then they go to his room and like make out and probably fuck cuz she's in there for hours according to the other girls. Well, the other girls are like they see her split off from the from the pack and they're all going they'll go days. Are you better off these on the staircase and one minute and daisies just kind of like and then they see her walk inside and then The next thing you knew it's the morning and she's well first first we cut to a hot tub moment with Aubrey and Prestige. Oh, yeah, Aubrey's feel really neglected and that she's not getting what she deserves she feels tongue action from Bret Michaels. It's Aubrey and Christy Joe or Their Own Worst. Like they're each other's worst enemies because they're the kind of friends that like reinforce each other's Insecure self-esteem and they like they just feed off each others. Like like they have kind of a co-dependent thing going on and they like feed off each others negativity and em and they make it worse. Like we all have friends that are like almost like our mirror The of the worst side of ourselves and the the friends that make it worse instead of better and like so they're just like out in the hot tub crying and then we come back to the morning and daisies walking up to the room and she's wearing a bandana on her head a labret and it's like wearing his clothes off The Tell-Tale bandanas said everything that needed to be said and she walked into his good morning and she gives me and Brett we're learning things about each other. I just heard the girls are going to kill her. Yeah. She's going to get like her throat ripped out there say Christy Joe. They're also mad. They're Furious. They're not even like speaking to her anymore. But Daisy is like truly unbothered. She's like everyone gathers in the kitchen to hear the song note of like what the day's activities are and daisies body language is like she's so horned up and empowered from this like sexual moment that she had with Brett. She's like way practically like bursting out of her clothes. Like she's on top of the fucking world and the other women can like just smell it there. Like they know that she has a leg up already. So I love just like blatantly going to like fuck him. I feel like it took a while for the girls in season one to get there. Will they see? We now know who's doing it from the get-go? She was pretty bold. She was bold. Also, I feel like I feel kind of bad about how much I came for Lacey. I don't know. It was having like a moment yesterday when I was doing my laundry and I was like, you know what Lacey sculls is just like doing her thing. She's an Entertainer at the end of the day long watching like I love money and like charm school and stuff. Like she's on the second season and I'm just like we all need a villain sometimes and maybe she's just filling that role. Yeah, I think and now for some reason the women and men in this whole universe, like I feel a love for them that I didn't know was possible and they can do no wrong in my mind kind of like, she's like Joan of Arc burned at the stake burned at the stake sacrifice too soon. But also maybe it was all calculated all along. I don't know but I just want to say sorry ladies. We'll see. We'll see how I feel once I've seen Charm School season 2 or Rob left arm School. So they all they're all off to their next challenge. They all Pile in a limo. And in the limo Aubrey just straight-up goes as you Fuck Brett towed AV and that's the thing. I was most guffawed out was her Egyptian ankh tattoo. Where is it on her run the back of her neck on her wrist? Yeah, I was like I like literally went like oh when I saw that does such a like a nineties moment, right Daisy channels, like some of the best nineties energy. She's like David my opinion. Yeah, she's Dave Navarro. She's like kind of like Nirvana like a little bit grunge a little bulb like Glam Rock like I I just am here for it. She's like Jane's Addiction. Yeah, she says like you would see her at Lollapalooza 99 or Woodstock 99 and Lollapalooza. Just any year totally dead. So again days, he's like whatever. I've like we got to know each other. We were we spent time together. We were learning about each other and they're all like, okay like say yeah, you definitely thought but she doesn't care and they get you won't admit it, which also makes me think they felt even more. Oh, yeah, but she she it's it's she knows what she's doing home. So they got to a huge warehouse and they meet the owner of a company called Exile Cycles. Which is real it's in Sun Valley. It's still still in business love and the owner's name is Russell Mitchell who's like, hot? Yeah, I was into him. Is he Irish? I think he's Irish. Yeah, I was loving his accent. There's I looked him up and there's older pictures of him and he's actually hot. Like without them she was hot in this and like a caring guy every guy that worked. There was hot. There was some other motorcycle guy that was like having to help them a little bit and get it Blake the mechanic and I was like Blake taught to everyone's hot at Exile Cycles. But I was also I loved I both loved and loved this challenge. Yeah, so the challenge is the girls are split into two teams and they each have to build a motorcycle which I was like, I would not get on that either bike that they built and ride it like I just don't trust novices to build a death machine for me to enjoy myself on but I was loving like the girls like Peyton's energy about the motorcycle building. She is so excited. She goes this is my thing. She said she goes she goes this one's mine. I want to get that date with Brett and be on the back of that bike. So yeah went out the the the the owner the winner of the challenge there's two teams and there's two captains and whoever win whatever team wins that captain gets hurt ride with Brett on the motorcycle and go to like a private date of birth. And then the rest of the girls will go on a group date the next day. I want to be on the back of that bag. I love Amber's face like a cuts to her and she's extremely confused by the whole thing. I was she's like, I like Amber's kind of winning me over. She's great energy. Like she's just like she's always like can you believe it? Like she just always just can't believe what she seen in New York and I I'm like if someone was a gift to build a motorcycle, I would be like, I I can't like I'd be like, I literally cannot walk. Construct what you're asking me to? I think I could do it cuz I like build a lot of built like a lot of Ikea furniture solo over quarantine and like I'm pretty good at building stuff back away with your hands. I always my hands but I don't I don't know if I'd go fourteen cat like if it was between me and Payton in a like I would let one of them take the lead them they seem to be the FrontRunner and really knowing the ins-and-outs of a machine like that. And like let me help I'll be I'll be like The Back-up, you know, it's like in the mechanical scenes which is like I got this like I'm I know what I'm doing like I you know, she's Mad Max. She's Mad Max and she's like, my brother is like God does all this shit and he's told me a lot and then I was like, okay. Yeah, like you are my team goddess, like please build the bike. I will bring you some nuts and bolts and like screw things and read directions for you. There's also an incredible shot of Catherine just with her sunglasses on looking completely like not wanting to be there like the love which strikes again and I was like off of me Catherine was true. Go girl gave us nothing this entire episode except I think she did walk at one point. She does walk Kristy Jo to Brett's room. She just is like a tall pillar of Love which 60s energy that cannot be eliminated and I live for her just sunglasses on being like she can't be building this motorcycle. But like I will watch over the process so they divided the teams into the pink and black team Peyton is the captain of the pink team and as the captain back to him. And it's a real they're really neck-and-neck the entire time first. You think like the pink teams going to win and like everything is going well for them. Then they like miss one thing and then the black team pulls ahead and then the pink team pulls ahead and then Payton's at one point. She was I'm completely stressed. I became almost frantic and frenzied. Oh, Just trying to get they have to build the bike and fill it with gas and then successfully turn it on and that's like how you've won but it just is like it's a real like who's going to keep holding it. Like they have they have like some of the employees like kind of facilitating and like giving them like some advice or something but like it's pretty much the the the ladies are building bikes and oh they are built they're putting like the chain on the bus Hayden is so serious about this like she's taking it so much to heart and it breaks my heart when she doesn't win. I know in a women's Yeah, and the captain of the black team. And Brett comes back Brett also was like, here's your challenge because I'm going to go take a ride, but I'll be back and I'll see we'll see you when so he comes back and he's like home. I just had a great ride. What happened was gone then Russell. It's like well the black team one and then he goes Destiny Peyton. You're going to have to put on some bikinis and wash my bike with a toothbrush. Yeah. That's that's the the cost of losing is you have to scrub Brett's motorcycle with the toothbrush song. The whole team just Destiny who literally had no clue what was going on the entire time and Payton who literally gave everything she had to this one competition and Payton literally devastated. She's like, she's like her head and she goes he sing she goes in that moment when and he's like, you know Let's Take a Ride baby. So they head off for like a lunch date. And as they're pulling off you just see paid and then she goes in that moment. My heart sank. She goes and then she was all I wanted to do all the time with Brett and then she just you just see her mouth. I just want I just want that one on one. I wanted with that one on one with Brett. Brett Gibbs in and Ed Hardy leather jacket, there's so much Ed Hardy swag. I think that that was like a big sponsor sponsor of like closed for a lot of these shows was any like wraps she like puts on the Ed Hardy jacket and they ride off into the sunset. So they head off to like a during. Where are they big up there in the there in the valley somewhere or do they go to like kind of a Spanish restaurant? I think they're in Gardena Gardena. I don't know. All I know is that at this recipe there were chains on the table. Yeah. They're in Gardena. There's change on the table. They have like a really like they don't really say anything to each other. It's like all like cool like we're having fun, aren't we? You know, she's like, yeah, like I think that we could be we could end up together and he's like, I think maybe we could do and then they're just like, okay and there's like a huge goblet filled with like red. Add up Liquid with ice in it and chains on the table. And then they just like make out I was like this date is utter chaos, this is David speaking and monosyllabic words and then bring that you might end up together. Maybe I guess. Yeah. Maybe you will I loved when you just went. Yeah, maybe we will use chaos June statement that is a true maybe and then they just like make out suck face and then we we cut over the house and painting in Destiny or scrubbing. In fact is Peyton's wearing like kitten heels. Like what is she wearing like what it is? I think she was just trying she's wearing a little peaked. Oh kind of kitten heel and she's tied a scarf around her waist like she's trying to I think play the game like I felt for her cuz like some girls are just chill to be in bikinis like all the time and that I say more power to em, Like do you I would not be like chilled to just like be in a bikini on camera like it would give me some anxiety. I would have to go like a little bit to the Peyton level like making a skirt or like putting a little peep toe on know. I Peyton had like a a relatable like modesty to her. Like I think I would be the same like it just feeling like song feels kind of weird to be scrubbing with a toothbrush. Yeah, but she's but she's God bless her she's doing it. Like Peyton is an artist at the end of the day. She is. She's like, I'm just a singer beautiful singer songwriter. I kind of was in like she didn't she was kind of like, oh I'm to this is not what I came here for. It's absolutely not she's in over her head at this point, but she's trying to play along and hopes that she can just have a little bit of solo time with Brett and his boss see the singer-songwriter artists lover within and then she can not have to participate in like more humiliating exercises. So Breton and I get home and Peyton Peyton and Destiny or waiting in the foyer of the house with the motorcycle in inside like waiting for him posing sexually and he's like, whoa, he's a came back from a date with inner to see these two hot chicks with my motorcycle and bikinis and why is Brett bike taxi colored? I don't know. I didn't like that kind of like Modo kind of like race car. Kind of race car but looked like a NYC taxi color scheme. It's like this people who have like the stencil thing of like New York on their wall. Mhm is like a kind of wall art that looks like the New York skyline. Yeah, or like a wall art. I saw someone recently that had like wall art. That was like a bookshelf like wage or wall art. That was of a living room with a book show though. That's like your own living room. I was like you're living like a multi dimensional existence. So Brett's all like George Brett's is a pig in shit right now and as he's reveling and all this attention Aubrey like comes down in the Seroquel and it's just like had it like she's she's like I need to talk to Brett right now. So she asked Brett if they can have a little side conversation. So they go off and Aubrey's basically like I dodged And not feeling like nurtured by you. I'm not feeling like you're giving me any attention. I'm like putting myself out there. I feel like you're like glossing over me intentionally and she's like if you're not into me like I need to know she's like, so I'd rather have you tell me now and not which is like she's being very To the point, which I kind of respect in a way. Yeah, but she's also it's big-time Sourpuss energy like when he was kissing Destiny and not just you see behind him obvious just standing there glowering. Yeah. She's not helping her case at all by like being a you're not going to ever. Woo anyone by Sourpuss off to the side. So she's all pissed and she says she just goes at one point. She just goes I am not. Well, I am not well and then Brett goes I can see I can tell she's completely unwell, she began the conversation to she has I'm a very very very observant person. I'm a karaoke host. I know young people And I was like Aubrey. Oh my God, you're not well, but she's and doesn't she ever say it? I'm not well and the and then the next move is the worst move. She can do right now is to go to Christy Joe. So she goes to Christy Joe and she goes do you think that was good that I said that and Christy's always says, yes, it was great wage and then they start working each other the fuk up and Christy Joe starts crying and talking about like she's like I got things to do at home. I've only Affairs to get in order. I'm going through a divorce. I just entered in I have a kid like she I think Christie Jones having a moment where she's like, oh my God, I have so much stuff that I'm putting off that's going to be like how why am I here or shareable decision and like to come to this do this right now? Like she just she got we learn at one point that she was in a relationship married to a man left him. Married to a guy within weeks and then just got out of that and within weeks of getting out of that she came here and she loved like she she fucken Queen I said I said Christy Joe needs slaw and she really does also like she and Aubrey are set cry friends where it's like they will just like cry together over everything and not work each other into a frenzied State and like then just act from complete like frenzy. I've had friends like that that we'll bush like work me into off an absolute disassociative frenzied State and then I make horrible decisions. It's like the equivalent of a friend you only hang out with like a lower companion friend that you only hang out with to do drugs seems like kind of on that level. Yeah, like certain friends you go to because you know that they're going to like get all worked up over something with you, but it's also like it makes you just feel bad luck. You feel worse after talking to them about a problem rather than better. Also, I did not recognize Chrissy Joe without makeup. But first she's she's like kind of a chameleon. I literally thought to myself I go. Who is that? What I was like, who is this woman? Who who is she and then I realized it was Christy Joe and wage. I think it's our eyebrows because like her browser like half shaved off. I'm having a moment right now where I'm like people's eyebrows are truly the window to their soul wage. If you not the eyes the browse like Hilaria Baldwin's eyebrows. Just kind of Really hit that home to me. Yeah, like it's a microblading journey that want to touch too far. But like the brow game back like I remember growing up or knowing girls. It would just either pluck or shave like the last half of their eyebrows off and then only to draw it back on home and I was like what what is that like that's interesting move and I think I almost tried I tried to do that once but I don't and it didn't go I don't think I could ever go full force though. I did accidentally shave part of my eyebrow off once but I by accident I did too for my my freshman year yearbook photos. I my mom was in Boston cuz my Nana was dying and she she wasn't home to like get me ready and I like cuz I she like she always Like would tell me that I couldn't wear that or you know what I mean, like shows like try to yeah creative direct me before I went to school when I was younger. So I liked and she was very much like you need to wear a certain thing for this phone know like you cannot pick what you want you have to do it I want but I went and picked a rugby shirt and like and then shaved part of my like I was trying to shave my end it shaved it like part of it off and I looked really wage in the photos. Yes, that's exactly what I did too. I was trying to shave the middle and then just like shaved like the front trunk of my eyebrow options. Like I was like I was like, why did you look like literally because you weren't there to help us groom. Like no one was telling me like don't shave don't shave the middle of your head. My dad was like sure you look great like I was like is this? Okay like the right he was like, yeah, that's fine. You're like no. I'm fucking gay. I need more than this. I need a job. More Direction than this and then I will never forget when I volunteered to have my eyebrows waxed. It was really bad. Did it hurt or did they just go way to manager way too manicured? It looks really really I looked very odd. I just looked there's nothing scarier than a man with like overly manicured browse. It was harrowing and I I haven't touched them really since yeah, it's better to just like let them Rock and do their thing. Also my brow hairs doesn't grow that fast. So I don't really have to get them done that often. It was a thing though. It was a real thing in this time. And Christy Joe is a She's brown Renegade Instagram because I was like, what are her brows doing now? Like how are they have they like come back and I think they're they've made almost a full recovery. Yeah, but I was I was worried Kristy Jo then her next move is to assemble all the girls in the living room and basically like reveal her truth of like message at home to all them as if that's going to like a give her sympathy give them sympathy for her or like I don't know what she was trying to do. I was like this is not like we're not like Kairos right now. This is not like a retreat. This is a competition and these women don't like you and I thought they want you to go. So anything you say to them. They're going to say yeah, you should leave. I don't know what when you're in the middle of like a nervous breakdown. You should not hold a house meeting with everyone else like living with you to let them know about your journey there. So she just starts like talking about like her kid and like everything going on and Megan Daisy and and Destiny are squished together on one page and there's this I took a photo it looked like a painting where they're incredible like they are over it is Megan is so me and she was just like she's like Christy Jazz talking about her whole like mess of a life and she's like, I'm like honestly like I don't give a shitt I was like damn no Meghan sucking ruthless. I just loved daisies face. And then Destiny with her hat pulled out like her trucker hat like pulled down low. Like they are truly that's like my reaction photo to everything from now on chrystie just truly getting its like when you're on like a a vacation when you're on like a trip that like you knew wasn't a good idea to go on Thursday in the first place and then you're like thinking about everything that you have in your like fuck like I can enjoy myself. That's what's happening and rightfully so she has a ton of shit just take care of but she's she came here as a true diversion and also Amber is shocked and appalled at everything Chris. You just saying her face sure reaction. She's like, yeah, it's just always like Taylor Swift surprised face at every moment. Yeah. She cannot believe what Christy Joe is. She's like telling everyone as a kid. I have a dog I bought Sue's at all, I was like, oh my God, like go home Jago open those boxes movies take care of your family of your kid like dead go take care of yourself. Like it's just I don't know what so completely backfires, but then she's like, I think I really just like need to go talk to Brett young and of course like Meghan Destiny and and Daisy or like yeah go talk to him thinking that this will like totally torture time in the house. And then this is where Katherine my queen song just stand silently and like walks Christy Joe slowly to Brett's room and like delivers hurt him. She kind of has grabbed her by the elbow and like guides her and then like wage there but you but she also is like just quietly like eliminated. She's like, I'm going to eliminate her by doing this. Yeah, everyone thinks like that Chrome, Joe like this will lead to her destruction and what they don't know is that this actually is something that really gets Brett rock hard. Yeah her she's like she mentioned kid and she and he's like, yeah, he's he's a rock, you know, he's great guy, but he she says she's like he's so he's just one of those people that like always like overly says everything like he's just like, oh, yeah, he's awesome is incredible you like what you don't know you don't even know. Yeah, I've never even said that I had a kid before. Yeah, like get some horny her being in Peril. Yeah, and she's like trying to tell him like my life is complicated right now. Like I just have so much going on. I'm like nervous about this or that and I even thought he was thought to be like, okay, like maybe you should go like blah blah and he's like, that's not the stuff that bothers me. It's if you still have the connection that would bother me. I'm like, why would you want to be with this woman? And he was like freaking out that she's like left her kid and her dog and all her boxes at home. I know he's like bread is such a narcissist. He's like as long as you only want to fuck money and like only think about my dick like I don't care you can be refined. You're fine. Which yeah, honestly. He is a He's a hypocrite though because in other cases long, he's been like put off by people's messiness. So I think it's like it's very person-to-person with him. But when it was Sam, like he'll put up with it for a while. I think he likes the edge drama of it because I'm remembering how Sam was so bad. Right? Right, right. I want to leave I want to stay one of the leave. I want to say and like that. I think Brett likes that cuz it just adds more drama. Yeah, you're right. Yeah, so it's kind of like. Your life is messy you need to fix yourself. He's like definitely stay here. So he kind of they leave it off like that. And then the next day we get to Brett's graduate with the girls. So his idea of a group date is he wants all them to dress up like pin-up girls and he takes photos of them. That's also not a date know again. Is work Megan is the only smart person cuz she goes I don't want to look like I'm from the fifties off. Amber is like I'm twenty-two twenty-three. Like I want I don't want to look like I'm from the 50s. Amber's never been more herself with the faces and they're like, oh like am so into it and she really leaned into the fifties pin-up challenge. He's he's just not even trying to be like pin-up. She's just like 90s grunge. Yeah, like I love that. No one made her adhere to the 50s. Mandate Aubrey is still not having it. She's like standing always standing off with her arms crossed and like a suspicious look on her face. Yeah, she's not dead. She's she's she said she's not well. And then live Amber goes she goes I've always wanted to do Brett's like he photographs them and then I guess like afterwards they all go to like have a beer together and he's like that was fun. Wasn't it? And Amber's like I have always wanted to do this. So and it's like you're lying. Yeah, that's not fun. I've always wanted to have a 50 southbound shooting my laundry on a first date with four other girls and Bret Michaels you had to do this for some like you had to these women had to do you're like you said do the work and like put on the outfit and hair and like home have to perform for him on his date. Yeah on a date but supposed to be like, let me take you out treat you like a queen and get to know you was like no. You're my sex doll. Yeah. So they're outside and then Brett certs shit talking Kristy Jo like just when you thought that he liked was sincere with her about her kid and like empathetic. He just took cuz yeah, you know, I I had a talk with what's her name. He called her. What's her name? Yeah, so rude so fucking rude and all the girls are laughing and he's like just shiting on her and he's like, I don't think she's here for the right reasons. She's here to be on T and have drama and like just starts like railing on her and then Aubrey is Aubrey drops livid. She's like livid. She took the last job I which I'm kind of like, honestly. good for her No, I was like I was into it at this moment and I just wrote I stand with Christy Joe I did too and I think Aubrey was really being a a real friend like she was like, I don't like home. I don't like this behavior. And I'm going to tell my friend about it and she goes immediately to Kristy Jo to tell her what Brett said and then Christy Joe goes back to his room and I thought this issue I couldn't remember how this drama panned out and I truly thought that she was going to be like fuck you like I'm leaving like which is what she should have done. Also Brett was he was like she was like, can we talk? He's like yeah, come on in and I was like, oh, it's like you're doing this is what's going on. Oh that thing that thing I've been there before where you confront someone that like is fake being fake nice to you. But knowing that they have like just said something mean and they're like, yeah, come on. Yeah, what's up? Let's talk. And you're like you were this is not okay to you. She goes like they talk and talk and then he's like somehow neck seems her and then she's like I really want to stay now. Now I really want to say I like try and be with Brad. He called her. What's her name? He didn't know her name. Yeah, like he is being deliberately mean and cold. I think he was being deliberately mean and trying to like wage. Stir Shoulda. I think that's part of the game is like he likes the tears and then wants to administer a test to see like how is this person going to react if I like Emma mean person about them? Yeah and like then she comes back and it's like all just a game. Yeah. So let me get to the elimination ceremony and you know bread starts picking the girls and it gets down to Megan inexplicably Christy Joe and a briefing. Of course, the two best friends in the house are pinned against each other and Megan's like I'm watching all these girls get picked and I'm like, why am I standing with Christy Joanne Aubry fair question. I'll bring his face. Also. She's like full-on Scout like the entire time is just like just over it. She's over Bratz. She's over the whole thing. And so be bred snakes for this is this is the hardest part all the time, but I've got to make a decision and then you guys Big John and then all of a sudden I'll breaches long walks out of her plays towards branch is Brett. She has I just I need to do this. If you're going to pick Chrissy job, she goes I'd rather give her a chance and just sent myself home and let her stay. I just it's what I want to do. Is what I have to do it I have to and there was almost a moment give her another chance. Please give her another chance. If it means that you'll give her the chance. Then I must go off and Chrissy Jose like weeping also and then perhaps like there's just one point that goes in this confessional. He's like she was going to go home anyway. So he's just like are you sure you want to go home? She's like I do and then he goes, well, I guess in that case your tour in year. She goes walks outside and she goes this is my gift the biggest gift I've given in a long time. Because I honestly I honestly believe that if Brad and I are meant to have a chance we will we're in the same city. That was that was the most La thing off. We both live in LA she became like I went from really disliking Aubrey to Loving Her by the end of this episode. We're only 20 minutes. We're only 30 minutes part on bad truck. We're in the same city. Yeah, if we are meant to be we will be go I live. Yeah. She's like I live in North Hollywood. It's not that far off. We're both in L A. So Christy just incredible Kristy Joseph selflessness. Aubrey throws herself to the flame like a witch off and leaps into the flame for all of our sakes to collapse to cleanse us all up sin. And and I just really became clear in this episode that Christy Joe is like a total drama queen. Yeah, like she just loves she loves the yeah, the terror and the fear and the drama and the will there the won't they and like and I would argue not as good a friend as Aubrey issue was to Kristy Jo. No. She even say thank you. Yeah, no. I would have been like I'm going with you. Yeah, I'm leaving too and fuck you for talking shit about me you pig let's go Opry gentleman. How about what about and then they like Thelma and Louise off but it's a dry. They get on Brett's motorcycle that neither of them know how to drive and promptly drive off a cliff. They just fly away. Yeah, like that would have been an appropriate ending. Why would you want to be with someone that literally like seem to be nice to you and then went right behind your back to talk about you to a bunch of other women, they're dating they ride into the sky and then you can you think they're going to like go far and Far and then they just they fly into the sky and then they land in North Hollywood or like somewhere in the valley outside of Aubrey's house and she's like, all right. Well do you need a place to like crash site or you and Chrissy just like no, I I I'm going to go to the airport now and like Wait there and get like a first flight out just like hang she's like, okay cool. See what I can see what I can get going here. I can get going. I'm going to do stand by and just see if I can get right on. She's like, yeah, that's a good idea. It's usually like you can do that on a weekday. She's like, all right. Well, Take care. bank, robbery just goes see someone messaged me that according to Aubrey like in the past year. She and Krissy Jose friendship fell apart because Christie Jones dated one of Catherine's twin Sons. Wow. Wow, the tangled web the web these women weave. Damn, also I think Aubrey was on a different show. I think she was on some sort of like tattoo show off as a receptionist. Someone was saying. Oh wow. Maybe ink karaoke Hostess. What can't she do? Well, that was a great episode. It was really good. I'm I just love I love these ladies me to I want them to be lifelong friends. I'm here for them like forging relationships. Despite that are strong bond, despite the system trying to find yeah. Well, I look forward to seeing more of Daisy in the coming weeks. Me too. Yeah, I truly don't know who's going to win either. I haven't Googled it or anything. So I'm I'm ready. Yeah, I think I know who ends up in the top three, but I can't remember who actually I can't remember who actually wins. So no one told me because I want something some things need to be a surprise. I need something to look forward to keep me too. Who's your favorite girl on the season, Angelique? Who stole their dresses for Angelique we still there? Probably Daisy Daisy a lot. Actually, I'm going to say Peyton Pike. She's my fave. I can't get over her song being really fucking good.

Let's be confident only on the e._s._p._n. Podcast network michael kissed listening again benjamin assignments so land. It's the kissed and solex show presented by s._p. Nation and bleeding green nation oh you are flying high on the list and solex showed this episode. One twelve brought to you by the fine folks at s._p. Nation i am bleeding greet nation. I'm your host michael kissed. You can follow me on twitter at michael kissed n._f._l. K. i s. t. as always joined by the dog on co host in the game mr nine year streak without a bad day he he is benjamin sollac follow him on twitter at benjamin so lack that's s._o._l. You really don't want to say hello there. Hello i was i was just buying john slack and so so i was a little late but i was gonna come with it. Ben how you doing brother lesson. They've finally something's happening in the preseason for like something interesting is happening which stopped the clock diamonds forty five seconds as promised. I tweeted out before the game this <hes> this evening sturgeon i recorded according to post game podcast not actually the bug podcast. You won't even let me lead you to it. Nope my by shining moment iran leandra immune whatever goodness so ben and tweeted quote mccown gonna unlock preseason jae jao with accurate slash catchable jump balls and i must oh spend exactly nine minutes and forty five seconds on the post game pod talking about it unquote so ben. I'm gonna let you go him on this. I just wanna say that. Release was so pretty that out was so pretty but i don't wanna still your shine matt even though i had him higher on my board shot okay von you were the that sets now. You were the one that told me about him originally. Let me tell this quick story because we've told this before but i want to put it out there again when i asked you last summer. Who should i watch. It was the first prospect that i was gonna watch of my drowsy and i went specifically to you you told me j._j. Segue whiteside and i was in love immediately ben and go forth a good football players mike. Is you like them. The football place goes so i think it's on you know he's had a couple of targets. <hes> <hes> from cody kessler a couple targets clayton thorson over the course of the preseason thus far sorenson and kessler while honestly both look freddie ear throwing the football that mccown does count got an absolute shot put his ribe young age of forty bad news out. There shorter can't get up much hiring anymore any more. I mean that alpha is low brother while we might look prettier. They don't throw with as much velocity and so they're they're. They're struggling to hit our whites. Have you watched the first two games on some some of his downfield route concepts which account even throw a huge number of down to concepts as of this conversation as we were saying a little bit earlier we currently in the lightning delay. Hi and we are talking about. You know what we've seen far. We'll see what happens with the rest of the game. If there's something that happens at the end of the fourth quarter a we'll go hand. We'll talk about that but if you're looking at the eagles those ravens game right now j._r. Sega whiteside from receiving perspective. He's seen seventeen. Excuse me seen nine targets eight receptions one hundred four yards and a touchdown down. It hasn't even been that much deep stuff but mccown able to really fire it in there for our ceo whiteside and accordingly. I got into a better rhythm. He's made some good catches across the middle of the field strong strong hands catches across the board the typical stuff you see from him in the first level fourth down conversion work to the second level and let's talk about that for conversion plagues. He gets lost a little bit <hes> in in in light of the touchdown catch. That's where our sega whiteside. You knew he had translatable trades to the n._f._l. Because when he's coming off line it's not you know he's not lightning-quick. He's not lining fluid and so he doesn't you know clear hands immediately and he's in space news releasing these manipulating guys and he's different and he's dodging. He's not shifty right or go outside. It's a bit of a blunt force instrument and so that corner initially gets hands on her website are single whiteside is strong enough and explosive enough to get upfield through contact vertical stack and then separate and and this is why you oh you expected mccown who's been in the league for now sixteen years eighteen years. Whatever it's been you expected mccown to immediately gravitate russell white said because whiteside while it's not you know <hes> you know <hes> in this round after on this quiz step in this release movement and and multi break routes and now all of a sudden explosiveness onus. He's such a friend of a quarterback he record backs love receivership whiteside. They are no nonsense they get into their breaks. They win with leverage they separate and they make ridiculous. Catches outside of their frame angle whiteside regularly catching balls that are behind him from josh mccown was why you love you love. Hello guys mccown. Accuracy is not greater forty first time in the system. Don't have a good feel of you know where our cigarettes is going to be. What the exact you know a row landmarks going to be the time he's going to be. It's okay give them all kind of near the dude that that catch on that little screener both ankles or single by ted's got absolute mets so that fourth-down catch we fight through contact table two separate. It's not a huge amount of separation but it's enough to create a window and then the balls behind my wife's is able to corral get up field. He doesn't have breakaway speed but all of a sudden explosive play on fourth some three then you have those situations like the touchdown touchdown route was a flag row beautifully executed and if you washed are single whiteside casually a couple of games to get a feel for them to talk about him. You would not have known that are single wides. I can do things like that but when you sit down and you really get deep into the film of this kid and even if you watched his highlight reel you also know this available to him but you when you really broke him down. It was not like oh occasionally you can do. This against college stevens backs. No this is a regular occurrence against it's the best players that he faced are cigarettes said at no nonsense immediately takes the corner and puts them where he wants them to be. Josh gattis office. Coordinator michigan says if that corners where you want the b. move him if he wanted to be keeping their and that sort of cigarettes that is very good at it initially saying all right when i'm in this stem i eventually want to get here so i want the corner outside or inside leverage and he gets in there just quick initial first step good inertial jab steps. We talked about often line of scrimmage hand get upfield into the vertical stem. All of a sudden corners is in a trail technique. You give them that rocker. Step a little little fake to the post hit the corner a little poke around like to call in so we'll fake to the post the rocker stap and then come come to the back pylon stack back to the mac pile on our single whiteside always talked about this. He wins the catch point early in the route he wins by by being physical and generating leverage before the balls in the air so he's not worried about getting to where the ball's gonna end up. He's i worried about making sure he's between where he wants to be and the corner so the corner can't recover now when you do that you'll be able to catch his outside to your frame. He ought to be able to explode into the catch point. Make those tough hands catches tractable of your shore. That's exactly what he did on the touchdown. Catch everything you see from our side in this preseason game toughness with the ball in his hands good route running fantastic physicality through the route stem and then tremendous tremendous physicality. All aspects of the game is exactly what it it's a perfect little microcosm of what you draft that if the seven overall fifty seven fifty three twenty seven in the second round. It's exactly what what it is right. It's exactly what it is that you were looking for out of this player and again because mccown is a veteran quarterback. We knew he could get it to him and be successful. Doing so mike i went for about five minutes not got my prime has promised nine minutes and forty five seconds but that was mostly a hypothetical figure illustrate how excited i was for it to happen and i'm so glad that it did because it's easy in the preseason to you say the outlook. Where's where's the second round pick than whereas we're siegel whiteside been. He has been waiting for a quarterback who can get the ball kind of near on time. If you did not believe us then then when we talked about it in may when both men were talking about j._j. Sega whiteside. Do you believe us now to emphasize something that ben were saying there. As far as the release goes to really emphasize that that corner has outside leverage on him jada whiteside widens out to him him to get himself inside and then beat him outside so he beats a corner with outside leverage by getting outside of him. That's not easy. That's not rookie stuff. That's not typical and when you hear ben talk about these different traits that that j._j. Has that you don't always just get from his highlight films which are it just filled with red zone catches and contested catches and things like that when you really break him down you see the nuance in his route running in his releases to where like ben said he's not going to be this big quick separator but all the traits that ben was talking about and all the things that attracted j. jaw to mccown. Does that not sound like l. Sean jeffrey so of course mccown is going to gravitate towards target light j._j. Sega whiteside and i'm just just so happy that we got to see a lot of that. Skill set on display not just the jump ball fifty fifty. Go get it but show some nuance in your route and get the job done in show uh-huh strong hands like he did his. We wanna get like really like legit deep into this row on a preseason week three touchdown catch from the rookie. Wanna get deep into it. I felt like we already had but i mean that's let's go as as isolated receiver on a trip set and he's in a nasty alignment right wisey nasty alignment because he wants to get to the outside flying is talking about a nasty alignment playing on a tight slot into the tackle right. You're pretty much like you're in a position where you could ask you to crack back bob block. Let's put it that way so let's let's clarify that from a naseem your route tree opens up from an outside alignment from quote quote unquote plus black or you're you're far outside. You can't run that corner out. That space is not available to you. They moved him to that alignment because of the nasty alignment and ben is shaking. His hand is the game back on called brother game is called. We are dying now. Thank goodness good night. Okay so right so we're in that tight. Alignment corners obviously got initially out side leverage but there's a safety cap whiteside. They've got you know th the the middle of the. I can't see the whole field. I can't tell you if he split or if he's actually single high but he's shaded to our civil rights attach the only receiver in a three by one set so bright. Let's say if you were to split it. It would look like cover to zone or covered. I know man cover two. Whatever the case is he. He's over to that side j._d. In college very good at recognizing safety saying away from them so yes this is this coverage while he manipulates the corners dictated by safety because corners initially outside leverage our our cigarettes wants to go outside if he's he's afforded he's being given freely and inside release right right corners on the outside. If he takes inside release he's going directly at the safety and accordingly that corner is going to remain outside leverage all the way down the field cigarettes looks to break to the flag row against the back pylon cutting outside the corners already going to be an outside spot are going to need across his face now yep no matter what are single whiteside does that corner is going to try to maintain outside leverage because he has safety out to the inside of the middle of the field and it's a nasty alignment to the cornices. Gonna say listen if you try to go inside <music>. You're running into the safety. I'm sitting outside of you. Because this is where spaces i wanna keep you from getting there so are single whiteside initially widens the stem he initially steps outside and then comes inside that corner effectively resetting where this route stem instead of being up to the safety. He gained two yards of width away from the safety. What does does this mean. It means wall the cors outside leverage in the trail technique following his stem when our civil rights that gives that inside fake. It's significantly more effective because if he were closer to the safety the inside fave wouldn't matter as much because it's the ball were coming out on a quick. I dig saved. He's taking his head off but now you've you've manufactured. Synthetic space is you've. You've told the corner listen. I put you inside and it looks like i'm about to i just pushed you outside and it looks like i'm about to come inside. That makes sense doesn't it. I put you over. There and i'm going to cut back the other way so by pushing outside distort. He makes a threat of the inside fake more real thus forcing the corner the play thus giving them the space he wants on the outside and it's all the cato by the fact that he knows the corner is going to play outside leveraged because the safeties in the middle of the field so like this is why like everyone go nine forty five i will but that's that's everything that goes into this route and they said whiteside easy quickest dude no but this is exactly what has called for in this situation. This is his third n._f._l. Game with a quarterback he's ever played with when i greeted or sega whiteside for mental processing and for a wide receiver mental processing seen things priests net knowing where i need to go and then adjusting trusting post nap if i need to agree to six out of seven and when i grade six out of seven seven is very i don't give out seven's okay so that's a very very high grade for mental processing cussing j._j. Ziga whiteside is a very smart player and plug to follow up on this because we've definitely gone overnight forty five now if you go to my timeline and also the bleeding green time line the the b._g._n. Radio timelines. You're gonna see a couple of tweets number. One is the recap show where we have a snippet of ben talking about j._j. Whiteside from back when we drafted him those plug from b._g._n. Jan radio i also when i grade j._j. I wrote that up for bleeding green nation dot com. They just re tweeted that out. You can find that on their feet. If you don't follow me and i don't blame you or you can find it on my timeline or went through every single grade that i had pre-draft four j. air sega whiteside within explainer with some film examples. If you really want to dig into his game like i said if you didn't believe us then do you believe us now and if not continue to do the research and you're gonna find that we have a very good football player on our hands in philadelphia ah ban we haven't even talked that much about josh mccown yet other than his trust and j._j. But i gotta tell you it feels like the number two quarterback spot is definitely like like seventeen for twenty four one ninety two touchdowns now obviously preseason backups all that stuff whatnot but mccown's been around like he's a known quantity and he came in off off the plane and looked like he was in command of this offense and just has the trust in guys to go make plays and with an offense as loaded as the eagles. You don't need a whole lot more than that to be successful to get you through a stretch if you need him. What did you think about mccown tonight overall yeah. Somebody said it was one of the beats and what i'm sorry. I can't remember who if somebody remember who was one of the beat said lesson. Mccown ain't coming out of retirement and e._s._p._n. Job if he doesn't know cuba twos locked up right right. I like it wasn't promised him independent of his play the preseason he wanted them out. His restaurant guaranteed back of spas guaranteed. Hey shame for credit counselor tessler who obviously came out in <unk>. Just tremendously bad a is so slow at reading defenses offensive and it's just this guy pop-gun again like like he's really he's nyc not the worst quarterback that's ever existed he really isn't i still believe that was a good game his buddies so wasn't i mean look quarterbacks around the league and yeah that'll tell you what you need to know all right now. My count i am account is a is a better player. Now i guess that mccown throwing mechanics boy what it used to be on and it was never good to be with <hes> but he's he's. He's clearly just playing playing the game. He's like zanjan this for nineteen years. I don't have to pretend to like you. The right throwing motion anymore like dross right. He just kinda out there. Slinging the with a little bit best placement we got on on on throws for our civil rights of course but also for greg ward great ward one of his better games of the past of of the preseason four forty five or his catches and this is where we're we're better ability to evaluate our our wide receivers because clans orson <unk> once during the football yeah mccowan more than enough to and this is how you always frame it. Carson goes down for four games. Can we go to into in in stay in in where we are in the playoff race like that's what you offer of your backboard right for twenty nineteen and mccown is absolutely that the big thing that i would i would say is that it's you know it's very clear that mccown on does not want to run the ball or get hit and that's very fair that one little scramble right and then he he he got down he slid. It was like everything like that but like there's a he got hit on the i think the alex ellis touchdown and they like zoomed in on them getting like small like what am oh my god. I know i'm here. I mean joe that like you think he knew. When he signed that he was going to score a touchdown like halfway jog off-the-field take his helmet off and dogs you get down there and two point conversion shoot so now it's just he's gonna be a pocket guy. I that's totally okay. They can be all right with that. No worries you were talking about the wide receivers. I want to dial back to that to here for a second with mac hololens back and actually doing athletic things he's on a football field a honestly the door on the wide receiver chatter for good and we kinda thought that was going to happen anyway if they do keep six. It seems like it's a battle between clean agassi and greg were junior he mentioned before. I definitely give edge toward right now. Who grow has been very complimentary of throughout this process and ah he's looked solid in this in this preseason training camp look solid as he continues to trish transition from college quarterback two fulltime wide receiver in the pros including tough catch on third down retook a shot and hung on the third quarter and of course bailing out clayton thorson last week on the thirty eight yard touchdown grab by my opinion is if they keep six. It's gregoire or junior. Do think that keeps keep six and you agree with that as well with the tricky thing what it comes down to his endless goes back to remember when p._f. Said the use of the best receiving group the n._f._l. And it was like wide receivers tight ends <hes> because the eagles are gonna run a lot out of twelve more than the average team then there's a better case to be made than the the average team for keeping like four and five wide receivers instead of six wide receivers n three tight ends which is the more typical construction so it's not i would say like if you if you took all the teams in the league and say who's the least likely to carry five receivers eagles are probably you know bottom to bottom three because of how infrequently they're going to deploy ten personnel not only that the practice squad factor clearing waivers that too right and that's that's. That's my big thing with. I think it's it's it's log alshon lock nellie. They'd locked sean lock our whiteside. I think hollins makes it unquestionably off of special teams value. They love him on special teams on nisa guy who went healthy like you know he was viewed as a potential wide receiver three candidate but also touted very much so for his specialty in prowess win. The eagles drafted out was his deal yeah yeah and so then what it is is now you're sitting here with the sixth spot and the question you have to ask yourself isn't has grey warden enough to win. A roster spot has called dossier <unk> one enough to morocco doc. Id roster spot. It's of these fringe guys and the fringe guys running back in the fringe guys a corner on the fringe guys that defensive tackle. Who am i able to sneak onto the practice squad right because to me agassi is a particular candidate for being poached. I've i'm a bad team with bad receivers and and that body makes on the waiver wire heck yeah brother all put mama fifty-three. I win ballgames anyway. Kelvin benjamin keeps getting work. Somehow is that right and it's like listen like this is this. Is you know it was like a lot of thing last year like you didn't want to expose him to waivers right soppe timmy then like. I don't think i would doc- has earned a spot on the roster. I don't think greg ward for everything by greg ward on the big rig fan. I don't think he's earned an active forty-six spot but the question the paradigm isn't earning it. The paradigm is who do you have to protect from ending on the waiver wire. That's the way to think about. I think the eagles go into the season with five and hopes keyboard inaugu doc- both on the practice squad odd and then subsequently you carry zakar. It's dallas qatar josh perkins and richard rodgers. I don't think roger's needs. I are on but that's the you'd so you'd probably have to carry four tight ends because if you're not putting rajon i are you have to carry three healthy ones and you and you're not gonna cut rogers. You can't pry spot many ways. He's too old so that's how i think it is coming into the season four tight ends five receivers and when we come back on the kissed and select show. We're going to talk about some other things that we saw in this preseason game as ben said the game is officially over it has been called early in the fourth with about eleven minutes to go. The ravens continue their winning streak. They are now at sixteen consecutive wins and in the preseason which is super important twenty six to fifteen over the philadelphia eagles but it doesn't matter we'll continue talking about this game when we come back here on the kissing solex show.

Today and we are back here on the kissed and so lack show episode one twelve brought to you by espy nation and bleeding green nation. I'm michael kissed here with benjamin sollac talking about this preseason game ben. Do you wanna talk about the j._j. Are sega whiteside touched on a little a bit more. I wanna talk about something. That's near and dear to this podcast heart yeah. Let's do game. I've seen eljay foreplay and a philadelphia eagles jersey. I can't remember gary even doing anything in his game besides getting an offsides call on a blitz or something stupid this it. I'm telling you two things for sure number. One eljay four is a better player right now than gary number. Two for gary is going to be above eligible for on the depth chart. I didn't even give you a third on. I'm not going to be happy about it. That's crazy to me for kick showing the reins yet again. The guy sees it. He fires his gun. He goes to get it and he wraps up in tackles. The guy does his job and rostock was really highlighting eddie t._j. Edwards the u._d._f. Out of wisconsin for his plant mike and just playing well as the third string mike i definitely agree but i have not seen a good the best backup mike i've seen so far as eligible for specifically mike in the center of the defense read scrape phil tackle. I think he's been highly consistent for the biggest issue. I have with him is that he's a three or four yards down the field tackler. He's not really grated coming up field getting underneath boxer being you know highly highly like a block deconstructing player and subsequently making a tackle short so line of scrimmage but he gets to where he needs to go on time he's regularly. I contact accordingly when you're when he's flying into the sideline this where i think he he's. He's a more exciting in a better player. I think he's got a really good flood when it comes to balance nicely and then in coverage for it's been one of the more consistent backers as for the eagles so to me it should be you know you're starting with brandon at mike and probably can move at will when you go three backers you're probably putting zac brown and mike aac moving brad onto sam and then your fourth linebacker for basically every spot is four and five. I mean it like ed. I don't even want. I don't want gary probably don't want edwards. I don't want singleton. I'd like somebody else pretty much but it's probably going to happen is it's going to be like i said batum and komo and then brad brown canoe and then gary is going to be four and four. It's going to be five. I guess keep gary is the five but like i'd want. I i wanna get somebody else. In there for god's sakes yeah absolutely. I think you know how i feel about that whole situation there but i think you're right. It makes it. It's getting it's getting missed in. I think a slew of them really well and eagles gave up twenty five points in the first half eljay for best preseason performances ad from what i've seen as the conductor of the l. j. fort hype train before they signed him. I'm very happy with this is great for my brand. Hey one thing that i was typing up in the off season. That doesn't really get talked about man. We had a rodney mcleod's citing today. He looked healthy. Young man was moving out there which is going to be great for this defense because we saw what happened with the secondary i mean the first real big hit to happen was mcleod going down early in the season and he was playing at a very high level so if he can get back and get healthy is one of the first guys to come back. We're still waiting. Ronald darby was still waiting on jalen mills unfortunately waiting on some guys to get back but with roddy mcleod back that's great for the secondary so that's great for brain as well as the big mcleod fancier something. That's not great for your brand. How are you feeling about that over on the eighty five percent field goal percentage for jake elliott okay faisali. Obviously nothing is ever bad for my brand. My brand is indomitable and unassailable a somber one number do as i have been saying from the beginning the eagles have have a kicker who can't miss from fifty plus and they're a team that does not attempt field goals fifty plus just a problem. I mean there's absolutely no way. This isn't mental right. It's gotta be it's gotta just looking at me like man those uprights bigger than they should looks like. There's too much base between eighteen those dale. Everybody knows it. Everybody everybody recognizes this now. It's impossible for him not to right. I mean so pretty much this preseason out of the east three or five and i think he said to for two from fifty plus and he's one for two from one for three from us in shifting memory serves. I think that's it right now. Which is just patently absurd it what what what it it comes down to is this and this is what i bring up all the time when it comes to things like the whole bears kicker thing that's going on which if you haven't read kaelin keilor's piece on sports illustrated shameless plug a great piece about the bears just totally losing their mind over the jake that was tipped his dent our they not. He's amazing the scapegoat yet. Trubisky right what it is is like if you're going to move on from a kicker you have to actionability prove to me that you can improve upon him and four even what elliott is which is not one of the best kickers in the league. Firstly kicker is not as valuable position to the eagles as it is for other teams because they don't take as many field goals number one number two. You still can't really finally got a free agent guy in the market to improve on like like you were to labor camp battle hurley loyd. I mean i'm there. I'm there in a heartbe. I've been saying listen. I've always been a theory that like oh man. I'm an old washed soccer player who slow watched do with my life brother. Throw on some passive shell on the sideline for fifty eight minutes but in the way it's you the u. k. It's too late for a camp all right elliot shaky this year if you want to improve on them you bring any u._d._f. Bringing a free agent next year make it a camp battle see if somebody can beat him out but right now as you're kicking for twenty nineteen there's no way they're moving on from him unless injury or like an absolute implosion in the season which he probably won't implode in the season like he's done this before where he's like in a couple of missed a couple a bad streak and then he gets he gets hot again. You know from inside fifty but it's very silly. It's very silly. Mike we live silly. Lives is what j. kelly. It's like yeah fifty eight yards. Let's get it. Oh no thirty six. Why dot yeah he's. He's mentally tough though like you said he he'll you'll get over. He doesn't get in those prolonged funk's which has good at speaking a special teams man. This game had a ton of flags sloppy stuff. It was so sloppy there were so many flags that eagles fans in attendance were actually bullying a flag called on the ravens which was just last heard improve eagles fans and and philly fans and general accurately communicate how they legitimately and authentically feel about a game now. This is when the eagles fan do they. They want to stop going because they're bored and that's okay. Stop sucking will stop doing a speaking of sucking can we can we talk about the two cornerbacks that we had josh hawkins and jeremiah mckenna's knock right and i don't think you understand how much i was longing for. The days of j. liggins those two hawkins doc ins and mckinnon. They are straight up space connects space cadets christmas happened to a to a gym album liggins they they caught him. They had to make room from to make some other move all right. I don't know i don't know where he went but would you would you would think by the way that these games go after the quote unquote starters starters like but not actual starters maybe who knows by the time they come out for the eagles you would think in these preseason games at the eagles have like literally zero corners rostered by because it it's it's so bad in the death net area and men to the people to come back from injury. I don't know how you felt about how they played but i don't think they're any answers there <hes> the secondary hey guys. I'm not sure how the safety is played. I had to kind of check that out when i when i watched the rewatch but any thoughts on winners on the defense maybe in the secondary you can kind of take it where you want to from there. 'cause i know you usually read the winners winners and losers column for b._g._n. Right which had not even begun so i thought i had you know twelve minutes of the fourth quarter left do it and then we start the game <hes> which is great. I wanted to stay up late right dot uh-huh. You know what i think will happen. I don't know that's why when the eagles roster jails ross ronald darby sidney jones was full dog l._s. of automatics save on the block lord niskanen drake. Whatever that that that you don't want like is there reason practice squad jeremiah mckinnon. Josh hawkins no. There's nothing here gene harris sojourn shelton the rutgers kid whatever right channon sullivan the georgia state can't from twenty eighteen who you know they had actually had play for a little bit but they practice squad at him. Initially he ended up moving in green bay. He's probably getting caught. His green bay's added multiple corner percents that i would not be shocked bring chance old and right back on the practice squad if they can you know they had they have to. They have to wait until green bay does but i would imagine he's not good but i feel like they would feel better right i. I didn't like his film coming out. I didn't like his fit in philadelphia jiminy christmas by the jeremiah mckenna. This is what i'm saying. They made brought him in adjudicate last year. We know that like my main point here. Being i wouldn't be shocked if you know legal so the eagles keeps keeps six corners to keep seven corners corners whatever if and when they practice guy it's not one of these fellows because i think they've seen enough from josh hawkins and jeremiah mccain and like you said to know that it you know we we can look elsewhere and give you a chance. Maybe it's just you know hold onto sojourn shelton and shell like they've got good corner depth. We haven't seen a lot of a lot of them are rehabbing and whatnot but then good corner depth. They're we're fine. It's not like these are important positions. Just talking about building out the practice squad speaking of unimportant positions and building alpine squad eagles trade bruce hector for network <hes> it was a two thousand eighteen sixth round pick. I want to say out of virginia. <hes> arizona cardinals safety why traders hacker because you currently have players players in assam ridgway trevan stor and finally a person who'd just hive. I have randomly ended up in kevin wilkins. You drive undrafted free agent rutgers who keeps flying while on the eagles. Are i think even tackle might be the best position deepest position <unk>. It's the deepest with quality deputized that can come in you get to like five and six deep age probably offensive tackle. It probably goes off tackle defensive tackle and the wide receiver in terms of just like the full strength of everybody the depth chart right fifty three. It'll probably tight end because like two of the three guys will be top twelve players in the league at smaller grew exactly yeah but like defensive tackle oh with flash me jackson timmy jernigan and then let's say keep five probably ridgway faster man. I mean hester who wasn't the biggest fan of him. You know when they signed nine. He's improved steadily. Ridgway looks like a great acquisition for the seventh round. Pick the basis for him seventh six whatever it was pointless move whatever ridgway like he's he's consistently disruptive wilkins. I like. I don't know when they put the third string team in but i always find out because some there's just a a huge dude with dreadlocks who says why does a door frame just right in the middle of the back like us on the thirteenth. You've had applied consistently his pass rush ability not there. He pushes the peak of the pocket. That's it but in terms of getting off the ball and presenting a filling gaps against iran. He's really sound right now so weirdly weirdly like heaven wilkins. This attack room is really good is it. It's it's varied even very strong. Felicia be excited. They definitely been very good throughout the preseason. We're gonna continue new covering the eagles. Preseason moves were getting closer and closer to roster cut downs of course will have tons of content here at b._g._n. For you ben i think that's going to do it for the recap of the eagles ravens exciting erotic preseason action. Would you say goodbye to the gentle gentle listeners. I have bad news.

Madrid to offer De Tomas or Mariano to Frankfurt to make Jovic deal happen, Madrid look at Jao Felix available at 120 mill, Ramos wants 18 mill for next season or he could be in Paris next ssn

"Welcome back to the Real Madrid podcast letsstarttoday with Kassab mirrow. He's been talking about the season so far and some of the potential big-name arrivals that are being talked about in the press and media now on pug and hazard, and that potential rivalry said immigrated, they have to be the best in the world there too. Great players pauper is compatible with anybody because he is a superb play. He would be welcomed if indeed he arrives on the trials and tribulations of is very Brazilian Marcelo. He said look a few months ago, he was being talked about as the best left back in the world of Gareth bale and the constant criticism from the terraces in Madrid said he's experienced he knows how to deal with it.

Here's very happy in Bundesliga. Have whilst Yovich was on the losing team the twenty or so clubs who were in attendance last night in Lisbon to watch Zhao Felix, including by Munich arsenal. Spurs Chelsea Manchester United boss learn athletic event is and rail Madrid they all left drooling over the nineteen year old. Remember India's first season as a senior pro whose nasqad seventeen goals in all the games that he's played for this season's contracted until twenty twenty three at Ben fica, and they are desperately trying to renegotiate the terms of his dearest current release clause is set at one hundred and twenty million spare thought actually for FC Porsche who had as a junior for seven years before they decided to release him back in two thousand fourteen believing his physique wouldn't develop enough to stand. The rigors of professional football.
