"His name is Dwight Chapin, who is Dwight Chapin. He has written a book. This is extraordinary. It's called the president's man. The memoirs of Nixon's trusted aid Dwight Japan, just an honor to have you in the studio. Thank you, Eric. It's great to be here. It's hard for me to believe because you don't seem old enough to have been Nixon's trusted aid, both of us were friends with chuck Coulson, who himself was young when he was Nixon's special counsel, or was he, yeah, special counsel to the pretzel. He was 39 or whatever. But you must have been practically a kid. How old were you? And when you say you were his trusted aide, and what capacity did you serve him? So people have a context of the book that you've written called the president's man. Well, I was 28 when he was inaugurated as president. And went into The White House. So my first years in The White House, I was our first year. I was 28 years old. But when he ran for governor back in 1962, after he lost to Jack Kennedy, he ran for governor in California, and I was 20 years old, and I was hired by the man that would become his chief of staff, bob haldeman. I was hired when I was 20 to be a field man in Southern California. So I had first met him when I was 20 years old.

Then you know, kind of medium sized one for uncles. Negative that Frank and then a small one for Uncle Sam e. Well, you know, I had to try it on. Okay? And I bet you looked great. And it as well. Yeah, I had I had to try it on and I ran around the house singing. You know, Mr Bojangles dog, and but they were so beautifully made and my dad had, you know, with his red pocket squares ties, and I would go up into his dressing room and everything was labeled he he knew exactly. You know what he had he had, You know the socks and it would be, you know, white socks, Navy stocks Flex all label And so he knew where he and his dressing room was just You know, perfect and all of his suits hanging up and he was always just so classically tailored and perfect. He had his shirts made, you know, on Beverly Drive, Everything was custom. He was so handsome. He was really so handsome and you know, it's I don't know if you know this, Dina, but in the fashion industry when we were, you know, buying shirts, there was a shirt model, meaning a street style. That was called the dino button down. I don't know if you knew this, and it was just a common term that everybody used for this particularly beautiful collar that reminded everyone of how stylish and how cool Dean Martin was. And so I I didn't know if you knew that or not, But I thought, Yeah, he sort of certainly touched. Um, you know the fashion industry because we all looked up to him as one of these fashion icons more than just his talent. And of course, he was an amazingly talented but you know, Dina, I was unfortunate up and thank you so much for doing this. You're listening to Gina Martin on threads with Joseph Abboud and Tina.

"Yeah the vision of the companies to offset or reduce you say reduce one percent of the world's co two emissions by twenty twenty five. That's in four years. He's it a little bit too embellishes. How's it going and the company you said. The company was created in twenty twenty beginning of ex. Exactly so we we. We incorporated company back in june. So we're still very early stages in working away with a few clients. But i think i vision is is definitely over-ambitious. What i think. It's a good statements for for what we wanted to do in. I think if we get enough companies on board we reconsider reach those targets now capturing in of tons as as a company on a company working for him so just in a few short months. We've been able to do that so we're sort of slowly getting to ago. Calcutta narrower hopefully to capture four hundred million so longer-term we're we're looking at not just carbon offsets but also helping companies use data to actually see how they can reduce their missions also so through combination of carbon offsets which may or may not be in the full focus in the next ten years. We also want to help. Companies to reduce those emissions using the data that we have the best sort of or form of carbon offsets to not release those emissions in the first place. So that's where we wanna focus yet. That's our ambition in the next four years is trying to to get to that level. You know yes. It's very important that you mention it i was. I was thinking a lot in the past days about waste management. Everybody's is running around sorting recycling. Guys wait stop for a second instead of recycling and overwhelming yourself about recycling in ukraine and many other countries in the balkans. It does not happen. So how about we ask ourselves how we don't produce in the first way's do we go as much as possible zero ways. How do we go. No solid shampoos. How do we go composting. And this is. I think mental shaved is not to produce rather then all. Let's do something about it shall really go first. Whatever we are talking about waste management or carbon offsetting did not produce instead what executive. Yeah exactly and i think it's. It's a shift that has been happening the last few years. I think you mentioned no sort of silver bullet to solving this problem and waste and recycling and and and all of that is incredibly important we do need to get into this circular economy but it is the case that i think people are focusing on sorta keep cups or non reusable bags and it is literally at a fraction of what the what the emissions i on individual level on the turn out to be negative. I think it's incredibly positive but it is the first step in many many things that people can do and i think first and foremost look at sort of had to not emit those emissions at the very beginning. I think is very important jan.

Ready the name of the company. Now that you're talking about positively. I cannot help myself wonder. Is it by accident that use the bird. The name of the bird that went extinct in sixteen sixteen hungry. I think maybe you might be construed as as being quite negative but we we chose the name dodo because I think first of all nice and short. I guess also but it is it. Is this this.

We know this is happened in the past and and we want to reverse that trend. We want to do something about us. And so we chose dodo as fisher. Sort of a negative connotation. But it's it's a marker in line to say we can take a stand and actually reverse those effects of climate change so we chose for for those reasons than i think cam yet run Student i can more positive action rather than than this other negative message that does come across.

I think in my last job i worked in a financial technology. Start up here in in london and we use banking data is open banking available in the uk to actually credit score people who couldn't get access to credit so was primarily focused on on the gig economy because their income was fluctuating. So much so. I kinda merged two things together. Was mike interested in the environment and been use data to solve a problem and they could emerge into one to use existing company data such as information to help companies measure their emissions in to reduce themselves. So we're sort of a convergence of two big themes in my life at the time. Helping was the team at start. I've just my co-founder ni- so we mess.

We're actually investing in behalf arclights earlier. You said something that. I also truly believe in you cannot change what you don't measure. You cannot fix what you don't really measure. You don't know what's going on my first question regarding that is how do you you said you used public information to understand in terms of co two emissions in every sector. Let's take an example. Let's take a educational service or something simple. As the spark say. I have five people working on it. What kind of carbon emissions in our actions we're talking about. It leads us into. I think i second product that look enough. Which is the one that we're developing with a few product lines at the moment so publicly launch this but what we do. Is we connect in with accounting software. Which gives us as soon as this. Podcast gives us a lot of the data that we need to measure your actual emissions so on our website. Which would pre estimated the emissions and in our pilot product were actually generated. Your actual emissions are so if we took this podcast says as an example a lot of companies.

Could you walk us through how the company really works. Split is the service. I checked the website and i see you have a breakdown of certain industries like say you're working in the banking sector or in the education. Then you choose how many employees you have and then what happens how does it work in essence. How much does it cost to use it. Yeah for sure what we actually have. His is one public product. And we're working on another product in the background which is released way where our innovation is is happening so at first product that you see on. Our website is called starter. Products in on what we've done is pre estimate emissions for certain industries. So we've gone to the public. Is guests documents. That companies have launched. And we said okay. If you're in this industry we know that you typically have these emissions and we break it down on per employee basis. So you're able to command as a company. Choose your industry choose. Many employees you have and we will say roughly. That's going to be ryan two tons of co two that we think your businesses admitting every month and then what the company does is subscribe to a monthly subscription to offset dot com unready carbon. Offsets again is another. Very interesting topic can be quite controversial. But what we've done is is source a level of these carbon offsets which just means that you're capturing the co two businesses admitted and so every month like your company is operating in a paying subscription. We are putting ninety percent of that revenue entities carbon offsets to make your company carbon-neutral or climate positive as as we say what kind of carbon of saturn ways or means other. Yes great question. There's off. And i think one of the big things with carbon offsets is is that. There's no silver bullets there. There is no single solution that we can use to help solve climate change and unfortunately that makes it a more fragmented markets bus. We need to have a multitude of of solutions to try and solve this problem and so the obvious carbon offset his trip. London which a lot of people would would probably know about but what we find. It can take a five to ten years for a treat actually reached maturity for it to capture enough. Co two so it's definitely more of a longer term solution and as we know in by twenty thirty we to sorta half all of our emissions to to retire emissions goals. So what we ought to do is provide other projects so reinvest in peatland protection Refi station intrigue pounding but we might invest in say meeting catcher which is very intensive greenhouse gas so we have a portfolio of projects that we invest in on behalf which hopefully will try and have short and long term impact and to reg- our global goals and talk about his up.

The top waiver-wire pickups for Week 3 of fantasy football
"Tap waiver wire picked for me this week. Is going to be 40 Niners runningback Jerick. McKinnon makes sense. McKinnon is available currently in 73% of ESPN League, so widely available and with the most injury, coupled With Kevin Coleman also being gone for a couple of weeks. This seems like an opportunity for the big free agent signing for Kyle Shanahan Step up and have Ah productive week and at least for a couple of weeks. I think he's the at least for this week. I think he's definitely the best ad long term. Maybe not because most it will return. So if you're just looking for help for this week, maybe a couple of weeks. Jerick. McKinnon is your best bet this week on the planet Jets, other playing A. Who cares? The Giants there. Still, I stayed in New York and you look the Giants Steelers. The Bears have run the ball on the Giants, and they stayed in New York. They're playing the Giants, so I would think that that's they're going to try to ground and pound. This is saline advice is always from the update and grapple is positive, right? Like they think he's gonna play? Yes, Okay again, though, it's it's obviously Tuesday, so it's hard to say anything definitively. But my cannon is the top waiver wire pick up, especially If you're hurting at running back, and if you have sake one if he had most, sir, if you had McCaffrey, and now you're starting to Sergio. Look, Yorgos got to start Jamal Williams from crying out. I got Jamal waves in my story. You might be hitting your waiver wire to pick up Jack Kennedy on the can, For sure, he's gone in one of my All right. Who else? Hide Let me fire Rams running back. Donald Henderson was highly drafted. You have Malcolm Brown, who left last week's game with a finger injury, along with Who's the other Ocampa and left with a rib injury as well. So Darnell Henderson stepped in. I think I believe you had 80 total yards from scrimmage. So Donald Henderson is my second ad. He is available in 54% of leagues. 50 44. That's good Darnell game this week. Rams and Bill's about it to Owen omits to know that those of a good man, that's an exciting game. This's now I'll give you a couple of guys right here. One's more of a long term play. The other is going to be a better bet. Immediately, but probably not for the long term. Joshua Kelly, Los Angeles Chargers, he is it looks like he has stepped right into the Melvin Gordon roll from last season. Austin Heckler obviously, is the main running back that you want with the Chargers. Things were better. With Justin Herbert under center. It's undeniable. Tyrod Taylor comes back. I'm I'm not nearly as enthused, but I have a hard time believing Anthony Lynn is just going to give the ball back to Tyrod Taylor. If Justin Herbert continues to be productive, why

"11 so you see how seriously the Kennedys were taking this and how they're preparing for that confrontation with George Wallace in the book you as we explained earlier. It's about two days. But you really use those two days as a lens into some of Kennedy's most Intimate and personal and was political relationships that he maintained and one person that you feature in the book. Quite extensively is head Sorenson. Can you tell us a little bit about Ted Sorensen and why you decided to heavily profile him and include him in your book? Oh, Ted Sorensen, who deserves a biography of his own, which I had started to write, put aside and hoped to return to is his Kennedys. Speechwriter Ted Ted Sorensen leaves Nebraska and arrives in Washington and Jack Kennedy leaves the House and goes to the Senate in 1953. Sorenson doesn't know Kennedy. He is interviewing with Scoop Jackson and rejects and the senator from Washington, and he's interviewing with Jack Kennedy. Interestingly enough, the speechwriter is interviewing the senator. Um Ted Sorensen was considered so good out of Nebraska. He let his law class. He was young a time in his early twenties. That she is advised to go with Scoop Jackson but chooses Jack Kennedy, and there begins an association of 11 years which I would argue, is the most extraordinary partnership between a president and an associate in the history of the modern presidency. There isn't anything that Ted Sorensen won't do for JFK. He reveres him. He is a master craftsman on a wordsmith. He works for J. F. K who himself is a writer and values writers have written with with Ted Sorensen self profiles in courage but had begun his career. After the war as a journalist, admired writers called writers, his friends appreciated eloquence and made eloquence and rhetoric, a centerpiece of the style of the Kennedy administration. With Ted Sorenson with Kennedy sense of occasion on DH tests Lawrence's facility with a pen they were magic, the two of them and so At this time. Ted Sorensen is not just writing the piece speech. He's writing a number of speeches, including these Finighan Berliner speech the JFK will give in Berlin two weeks later. And hell will be writing under different circumstances, which I'm sure we'll get to the civil rights speech. The Chip Cain will deliver on June the 11th They are extraordinary combination, which doesn't mean they're friends. They don't socialize together. And Ted Sorensen is actually devoted to JFK. If it comes at some cost, it will destroy his marriage and ravage his health. And shake a times his self confidence, and he will never recover from the death of John F. Kennedy. Five and how 5.5 months here later, your 5.5 months later. But while they're together and on these particular two days is the height of president for me and looking at this administration, which it was an administration, where words mattered the height of their rhetorical Flourish. Another major player. That highlight in the book regarding JFK is decision in the University of Alabama. Well, if from 10 servants used to like to say he was the third most powerful men in Washington because our candidate Robert Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, was sad. And nobody could displace Bobby Bobby is a lot younger than Jack Bobby has been drafted by Joseph P. Kennedy. The Kennedy Patri are To serve. His brother. Bobby didn't want to be attorney general in 1961 and Joe Kennedy said to Jack, you will make Bobby your attorney general. And Jack famously introduced his body's saying, Well, I see no reason not to give him a little legal experience before it goes out to practice law. This was the chief law enforcement officer of United States. Bobby was a wonderful attorney general and Kennedy Justice is an extraordinary combination of passionate effecting this rhyme from the leading lawyers and legal thinkers in America..

"Strange times. It is in this crazy political world that we live in very strange Bernie Sanders. On Fox News a full hour. I've never seen this before unfettered. Unfiltered. It's live, right. And just going off on a Fox News at self. But then also challenging the hosts Martha McCallum, for instance. Right. Why don't you go? Volunteer more of your tax money and crowds cheering burning during this. It was in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. And I just it was kind of odd to watch at the same time strangely. Compelling. Sure. It's a town hall, the free foreign absolutely that way is supposed to be that way. Right. Yeah. Right. But you just don't see very often. Right. In other words, I'm trying to picture the same Donald Trump on MSNBC and like in rocky four when rocky goes to Russia, and he's nearly knocked out like the first like twenty rounds. He should do. He should on MSNBC. I'm not done with the analogy at and then rocky eventually starts beating Drago. Oh, and then the Russian crowd starts cheering for rocky, which is the most profoundly ridiculous plot that ever happened, but fine yellow buy into it. And that's the thing. Yeah. Blame it on Trump did town halls on MSNBC way back when with Chris Matthews, which is bizarre to think about now with Joe Scarborough making presents they've turned on him since clearly so I don't think we'll be seeing that happening during this particular presidential election. But I know Trevor the producer that we do have some Bernie sound from last night. That I believe fresh off the presses so to speak. So this is Bernie talking about how his sound of his voice really reverberates being from Brooklyn and all five won a million debates when people hear my message at resonates loud and clear because I always talk like I'm on the other side of a river essay lease. I mean, that's how he gets his message through he just yells people. Well, you know, Trump is not exactly a shrinking violet. I would say you think they'll actually was Bernie Sanders. So you think maybe that was Larry David the actor could be though, get the to confuse lease. That was Larry David. Yeah. Well, neither is this shrinking by any of them any politician or and or Larry David Wright, your watch curb your enthusiasm curb your enthusiasm. Okay. Very good. But here's this one moment in the debate. And you know, a debate it's it's a town hall. But in any debate Ernie townhall could go on for an hour. And then. The only really one maybe two soundbites resonates the next day. We're then you're talking about it. Right. You go back through the debates over the years. There you go again, you know, Ronald Reagan. All right. You know, are you better off now than you were four years ago? Or was it a Benson with Quayle? I I knew Jack Kennedy Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine or you're no, Jack Kennedy lines like that. Right. They resonate now. I know this is only a town hall, but participant tiller has been standing out today in the cable news fear, regardless of what network you're watching. I want to ask the audience question. If you raise your hand here, a show of hands of how many people get their insurance from work private insurance right now how many get it from providence sharks race. Okay.
